        Méphis, par Mme Flora Tristan.

      chez Ladvocat, A Paris 1838 - 2 vol. in-8 de (4)-VII-365 pp. ; (4)-390-(2) pp., demi-basane brune, dos lisse orné de motifs romantiques (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale très rare. Mention de deuxième édition au tome II. Entre l'achèvement rédactionnel des Pérégrinations d'une Paria, que l'on peut dater de 1835 ou 1836, et sa publication fin 1837, Flora Tristan a écrit ce gros roman en deux tomes ; c'est le seul ouvrage d'imagination que l'auteur ait sans doute écrit et, en tout cas, publié. Flora Tristan a composé ses personnages pour être les porte-paroles de ses conceptions philosophiques, sociologiques et religieuses. Elle y traite, par héros interposés, tous les problèmes qui lui tiennent à coeur, aussi bien sur le plan individuel que social (P. Leprohon). Bon exemplaire avec des rousseurs.

The critical examination of chronology is separately paginated from the first part of the book and has pp. 138 while the main part of the book has pp. 427. The front matter of the book has two sections as well with pp. xvi and xviii. one of the front endpapers has a slip pasted down that is written - probably- in Italian and English- there is additional writing on the endpaper with references to other works. All, appear to be of scholarly interest related to this book. There are a few other small pencil and ink markings on the pastedowns and free endpaper. There is also a small old book seller's sticker- appears to say T. Sotheran. Also noted in the book is an old newspaper clipping which has turned brown and affected the neighboring pages.

Après une première partie anatomique et de classification, La Rue décrit physiquement chaque insecte selon son espèce (ordre) ou sous-espèce (sous-ordre). Il donne une description plus détaillée pour les coléoptères et les lépidoptères, s'attardant parfois assez longuement sur les moyens de destruction de certaines espèces, afin d'éviter leur prolifération et les ravages qu'ils produisent (en particulier pour les rostricornes, cylindriformes, filicornes, toutes les espèces de bombyces, les séticornes, phalènes arpenteuses du pin et les pyralies verdâtres). Dans les deux dernières parties, La Rue propose des "Mesures et opérations propres à prévenir la multiplication et les dégâts des insectes", classées selon les mois de l'année, et quelques conseils pour le traitement des bois gâtés par les insectes. In fine, 6 planches en noir montrent 39 figures d'insectes ou de détails anatomiques. Malgré des rousseurs sur l'ensemble de l'ouvrage, bon exemplaire bien relié par Paul Darbray, riche papetier et ingénieur corbeillois, portant l'ex-libris du château du Val Cognatrix et, sur la page de titre, l'estampille de son Château de Saint-Germain-les-Corbeil.

        The Suburban Gardener and Villa Companion

      printed for the Author, sold by Longman, Orme, Brown, Green & Longmans, and W. Black of Edinburgh, London 1838 - (8 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches). 32pp. of advertisements at end. Approximately 340 wood-engraved illustrations (some full-page). Original blue/green cloth, covers blocked in blind, the flat spine divided into five compartments by blind fillets, lettered in gilt in the second compartment First edition of this well-illustrated and informative work designed to appeal to the swelling ranks of the affluent middle classes in early Victorian England. The aim of this fascinating work by J.C. Loudon, "the most distinguished gardening author of the age" (Andrew Jackson Downing), was to provide help with "the choice of a suburban or villa residence, or of a situation on which to form one; the arrangement and furnishing of the house; and the laying out, planting, and general management of the garden and grounds; the whole adapted for grounds from one perch to 50 acres and upward in extent; and intended for the instruction of those who know little of gardening and rural affairs, and more particularly for the use of ladies" (title). As the title makes clear, the range of this work extends beyond Loudon's normal territory of the garden to include advice on the layout of the rooms and how they should be decorated. The wood-engraved plates range from garden plans, to house plans, to suggested interiors. Lowndes II, p.1399. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The glows extended from both electrodes for some distance as he increased the evacuation, but it never fully met at the middle. ix, [1]-59, [1]-414, [8] pp. 4to. Library binding, tan leather spine with gold embossed titling. Interiors clean, ex-library stamp on title page, and occurring sporadically within. Numerous folding plates that illustrate articles. Pages were trimmed slightly when rebound.

        Manuscript Court Document Tasmania - Australia

      Tasmania, 1838. Launceston, Van Diemen's Land [Tasmania], 27 February 1838. Early court document from the recently independent colony, issuing a fine to a former convict who had become shopowner and settler, for a fraudulent transaction contradicting the "Sale of Bread Act (1834)". Folio. Printed document completed in manuscript. Single leaf, laid watermarked paper measuring approximately 20 x 32 cm. Creased, otherwise in very good condition, a rare surviving document of colonial Tasmania. Illustrating colonial law in the Pacific colonies, in part put in place as economic solutions to food shortages, and strictly regulating consumer transactions, this is an official court conviction which issues a fine to a former felon from England who settled in Van Diemen's Land after his sentence, only to find himself on the wrong side of the law once again several years later. The Sale of Bread Act (1834) was put into effect in. Very Good.

        Timpoochee Barnard, an Uchee Warrior

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Lithograph "Drawn Printed and Coloured at J.T. Bowen's Lithographic Establishment", after a C.B.King portrait painted in 1825. In excellent condition. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America'. A venerated Yuchi chief, Timpoochee Barnard had a Scotish father and Yuchi mother. He was a commissioned major who valiantly fought under General Jackson against the Creeks in the 1814 Battle of Callabee Creek.. Major Barnard's distinguished military career continued with his gallant participation in the 1818 Seminole War and the battle at Econaffinnah or Natural Bridge of the same year. After travelling to Washington to contest the Indian Springs Treaty of 1825, he settled near Fort Mitchell, where he remained until his death. Of Timpoochee, President Jackson once remarked to his son, "A braver man than your father never lived." Also known as the Choya'ha or Tsoya'ha, meaning 'children of the sun', the Yuchi tribe inhabited the Southeastern region of the United States. They had been practically eliminated by the Creeks and Cherokees and lived uneasily in their midst. McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk, and Black Hawk. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. BAL 6934; cf. Bennett p.79; cf. Field 992; cf. Howes M129; cf.

        Observations on limes, calcareous cements, mortars, stuccos, and concrete, and on puzzolanas, natural and artificial; together with rules deduced from numerous experiments for making an artificial water cement, equal in efficiency to the best natural cements of England, improperly termed Roman cements; and an abstract of the opinions of former authors on the same subjects.

      London: John Weale, Architectural Library. 1838. 8vo., (74) + 288 + 124 + (2)pp., with several woodcut text figures, various neat emphasis marks and a few marginal notes all in pencil by an earlier reader, original blind-stamped cloth, rebacked and lettered gilt. A very good uncut copy. First edition. Skempton 1047. 'The best of all the early British sources for the history of cements and concrete. During the 1820s Pasley conducted exhaustive tests into the properties and characteristics of natural English ('Roman') cement at Chatham, partly in order to manufacture an artificial cement of equal strength. Although his book was primarily intended to publicize this artificial material, he brought his considerable intellectual powers to bear on the whole subject, studying all the existing literature of the time, both British and foreign. His extensive commentary on these works, together with his inclusion of a great deal of first-hand information derived from friends and colleagues, manufacturers as well as engineers, are what makes this book so remarkable.' [Julia Elton, cat.no.6, 1991, p.104]. Sir Charles William Pasley (1780-1861), Army officer and engineer, was Director of Field Instruction at Chatham, 1812-1841. While there he organised improved systems of telegraphing, sapping, mining, pontooning, and exploding gunpowder on land and in water. His treatise on cements and concrete was 'immensely influential' (Elton). It was published in a second edition in 1847.

        A DISSERTATION ON THE NATURE AND CHARACTER OF THE CHINESE SYSTEM OF WRITING, IN

      Philadelphia 1838, American Philosophical Soc. Cloth over. boards, 375p., 10 plates of Chinese characters, very good,. minor wear to corners, spine head/tail contents clean, sound. bright white paper, no foxing. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. AN EARLY & MOST IMPORTANT TREATISE ON CHINESE & VIETNAMESE This early resource is of importance as it outlines the true nature of Chinese characters and their meanings when opposed to their sounds. The VOCABULARY OF THE COCHINCHINESE is of major use with references to plates, containing the charact- ers belonging to each word, & with notes, showing the degree of affinity existing between the Chinese and Cochinchinese languages, and the use they respectively make of their com- mon system of writing. The last essay by Palun A COCHIN- CHINESE AND LATIN DICTIONARY in use among the R.C. Missions in Cochinchina is a special resource for those Catholic mis- sionaries to communcate to the Vietnamese in their own lang- uage, and an important early missionary dictionary. These resources are supported by appendices of letters from Du Ponceau to Capt. Basil Hall, 1828. Highly interesting and valuable early resource on both of these languages. For more details see L. Taylor: CATALOGUE OF BOOKS ON CHINA IN THE ESSEX INSTITUTE. p.274. Du Ponceau [1760-1844], was an Amer- rican author, lawyer and fought in the American Revolution and succeeded Thomas Jefferson as President of the American Philosophical Soc. Q U I T E R A R E !

        TOTOH SAIJIKI: ILLUSTRATED ANNALS OF EDO FESTIVALS & ANNUAL EVENTS BY SEASONS.

      Edo 1838, Suharaya. Blue stitched wrs., 5 vol., covers rub-. bed and soiled, contents clean, solid, 25+10, 24+33+35+25+9. double leaf pages, 136 illustrations, some double page, wood. block printed by hand on hand-made mulberry paper. SCARCE. Saito [1804-78], was an Edo author. The book was illustrated by Hasegawa Settan [1778-1843, and his son Settei [1819-82]. The father was a pupil of Toyokuni, particularly well known for this work as well as EDO MEISHO ZUE. The work is chrono- logically arranged to show every festival or event held in the Edo area. It is a lovely and most profusely illustra- ted record of the events, the people and the location where celebrated. This work covers a great breath and width, with such old classics as Hanami or spring cherry blossom view- ing, musical recitals, Daimyo processions, tug-of-war, chry- santhemum viewing, a wide variety of Buddhist and Shinto shrine celebrations, Sumo wrestling, Yoshiwara parade of the prostitutes, New Years, swords, scrolls and old book and a host of other festivals and celebrations. This also lists the whole year's celebrations in an index by dates. Many of these same festivals are still celebrated today in Tokyo. A throughly quaint resource, and joy to behold. The set has some minor and occasional old worming, thumb marks, faint marginal and cover stains, but all in all a good copy of a very SCARCE title. Cited in D.

      Utica, N.Y.: M. M. Peabody, 1838. - Single sheet, (14 ¾ x 23 inches). Fine engraved map of Oregon Territory (professionally reinforced at old fold corners). First edition. This is the EARLIEST ACCURATE MAP OF OREGON, and an attractive copy. "Samuel Parker's 'Map of Oregon Territory' of 1838 represented a real advance, and was made from personal observation. Of it Wagner-Camp remarked that it was 'the earliest to obtain circulation which contains reliable information as to the interior of Oregon Territory ' On this map the North Fork of the Platte is shown, with the Sweetwater flowing into it. South Pass is not named, but the sources of the Sweetwater and the Big Sandy are close together. Bear River is imperfect, but correctly flows into Salt Lake, while not far north, at the mouth of the Portneuf, is Fort Hall. The Yellowstone heads in Lake Eustis, but Lewis and Clark's Lake Biddle is now absent, and west of the crest of the Rockies is Jackson's Lake, under the Trois Tetons, finding its outlet in a stream that flows into Henry's Fork, and later the Snake " (Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West II pp. 165-166). Wheat 438. Wagner-Camp 70.

        JOURNALS OF THE SPECIAL COUNCIL OF THE PROVINCE OF LOWER CANADA

      Montreal, 1838. Quarto. Later cloth, red and black gilt morocco labels. Moderate soiling on covers, library labels at toe of spines. Uniform light toning. Perforated library stamps on titlepages, occasional additional library markings. First twenty pages of last volume in typescript facsimile. Overall very good. Lacks the sixth volume. An important collection of Canadian laws as passed by the Special Council of Lower Canada from 1838 to 1840. When the Patriot Uprising of 1838 caused Canadian officials to suspend the 1791 constitution (which had divided Canada into the Upper and Lower Provinces, each with their own legislature) and establish martial law, the provincial judiciary assumed administrative control in the form of the Special Council. The Special Council continued in an administrative capacity until the Union Act of 1840, which reunited the provinces with a single legislature. A fundamental cause of the Patriot Uprising was the ambiguous extent of judiciary power; based on the reign of the Special Council (recorded in detail here), judicial powers were more clearly defined via the Union Act. TPL calls for six volumes bound in three. The present set features each volume bound separately, lacking the sixth volume. The large portions of unnumbered pages at the end of each contain sessional papers, appendices, and indices. Key insight into a tumultuous period of Canadian legal history. The journals were also issued in French. OCLC locates only five copies, none of which appear to be complete.

        Kish-Ke-Kosh, a Fox Brave

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph by J.T. Bowen after George Cooke's 1837 portrait. In excellent condition apart from some light off-setting and soiling. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. A reputedly fierce warrior with an imposing presence, Kish-Ke-Kosh attended the delegation of Sioux and Fox and Sauk chiefs at the War Department in 1837, where the two tribes signed a tenuous peace treaty. Despite his normal appearance, his name roughly translated means 'The Man with One Leg' or 'He with a Cut Hoof'. The Fox tribe, which are actually the Mesquaki, inhabited the Great Lakes region of the United States and merged with the Sauk tribe in the eighteenth century. McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk, and Black Hawk. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. BAL 6934; cf. Bennett p.79; cf. Field 992; cf. Howes M129; cf.
