        Stum-Ma-Nu, a Flat-Head Boy

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph. In excellent condition. 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. Stumanu (?1818- 1839) was of the Chinook, or Flathead (as designated by the whites), tribe that inhabited the region north of the Columbia River in present day Washington (then Oregon Territory). According to McKenney, the Chinook were "a very interesting people. They are honest, hospitable, and kindly disposed towards the whites. They excel most other Indians in simplicity and frankness of character." Stumanu, who, living on the Columbia, was an expert fisherman, was educated at the Indian school founded by Dr. John M'Loughlin, "Father of Oregon". Still young, Stumanu was taken east by a missionary in a fundraising effort. There, in New York City in 1839, he contracted an unknown illness and died. 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.

        Scipio Cicala in der Blauen Grotte

      1838. Aquarell und Weißhöhung über Bleistift auf Papier, 38,5 x 28,4 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung Artaria, Wien. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. "Vor seiner Abreise hat Hr. Götzenberger uns das Gemälde sehen lassen, das er für die nächste Ausstellung im Louvre bestimmt: es ist das Innere der Blauen Grotte auf der Insel Capri, mit dem Auftritte, der in dem Roman von Rehfues: Scipio Cicala so anmuthig beschrieben ist. Es ist eines jener Gemälde, die desto mehr gefallen, je länger man sie betrachtet. Ein sehr gefälliges Colorit, das bei der besonderen Beleuchtung der Grotte und der Strahlenbrechung des von unten herauf dringenden Lichtes Schwierigkeiten bot, so wie eine Reihe graciöser weiblicher Gestalten, verleihen diesem Bilde einen Werth, der von den Franzosen umso williger wird anerkannt werden, als sie ihm den Vorwurf der Farbenverschmähung nicht machen können."1 Das Gemälde Jakob Götzenbergers, das die Allgemeine Zeitung vom 29. November 1838 mit diesen Worten lobte und dem der Künstler einen so hohen Wert beimaß, dass er es in Paris ausstellte, ist heute verschollen. Doch hat sich diese kolorierte Entwurfszeichnung erhalten, welche Aufschluss über die Komposition gibt und somit ein bedeutendes Zeugnis ist. Die Darstellung illustriert eine folgenreiche Begebenheit aus dem 1832 erschienenen Historienroman Scipio Cicala von Philipp Joseph Rehfues (1779-1843). Der aus Sorrent stammende Scipio Cicala wird in der ersten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts in politische Konflikte seiner Heimat hineingezogen und hat viele Prüfungen zu bestehen. Gegen Ende des Romans klettert Scipio auf der Insel Ischia - nicht Capri wie in dem zitierten Artikel - von oben in eine Felsengrotte, in der sich zahlreiche Fischer versammelt haben. Von einem Vorsprung aus, beobachtet er eine Dreiergruppe bestehend aus einem Mann, einer schönen, jungen Frau in lagernder Haltung und ihrer afrikanischen Dienerin, die einen Turban trägt. Schnell erkennt Scipio, dass es sich bei der Schönen um Narcissa handelt, die Tochter des türkischen Flottenführers Uludsch-Ali. Sie ist ihm bereits zuvor bei einigen seiner Abenteuer begegnet. In der Grotte befiehlt Narcissa ihrer Dienerin, mit dem Musizieren aufzuhören und die Laute ins Feuer zu werfen. Kurz darauf bereut sie dies und das Instrument wird aus den Flammen gezogen, schließlich landet es stark beschädigt in einer Ecke der Höhle. Wenig später entdeckt sie Scipio und ruft ihn zu sich. Diese Begegnung führt dazu, dass der Protagonist mit seiner Vergangenheit bricht und sich den Türken um Uludsch-Ali anschließt. Auf der Zeichnung Götzenbergers ist dieser Wendepunkt im Leben des Titelhelden detailgetreu wiedergegeben. Auf einem verschatteten Felsen in der rechten Bildhälfte kniet Scipio und schaut herab in die von mehreren Feuern beleuchtete Höhle. Grazil lagert dort Narcissa mit ihren Begleitern. Sie wird in Rückenansicht wiedergegeben. Ihr rechter Arm weist in Richtung des jungen Mannes, ein Zeichen dafür, dass sie ihn gerade entdeckt hat. Diagonal im Vordergrund auf der Grenze von erhelltem Bereich und dunklem Felsen liegt die zerstörte Laute. Schon in diesem in Blau-, Grau- und Brauntönen gehaltenen Entwurf wird deutlich, welche besondere Rolle der Lichteinfall für die Komposition spielte. Die Beleuchtung der verwinkelten Grotte durch mehrere Feuer wird kunstvoll eingefangen und mit den düsteren Felsen kontrastiert.

        "The Great South Land:" Four Papers on Emigration Designed to Exhibit the Principles and Progress of the New Colony of South Australia

      London: Simpkin & Marshall, 1838. Octavo, 34 pp. (last blank), folding lithographed map; some foxing, a good copy on later worn quarter roan. South Australia for Scottish emigrants. Uncommon booklet published by the South Australian Company promoting emigration well after the settlement was established, and aimed squarely at the Scottish market. This is the second edition, following the success of the first edition published in Stirling earlier in 1838.The book is based on articles which had appeared in the Stirling Observer in early 1838; it openly encourages the curious to apply directly to the South Australian Company in London. A two-page postscript prints excerpts from Macarthur's Emigration to New South Wales, on the grounds that Sydney and Adelaide are 'situated nearly in the same latitude.' The other interesting inclusion is a later issue of the map captioned "Part of Southern Australia", based on that in the 1834 work titled South Australia. Outline of the plan of a proposed colony with the details of the Murray River. The map was newly lithographed for this second edition and bears a details of a different printer from that of the first edition.The need for a second edition is explained in notices to the verso of the title-page: 'The reception and rapid sale of the first Edition of this publication (2000 copies having been disposed of within the first month) call for a new edition, in which, though the shape of the articles has been continued, their original character as newspaper contributions has been, to some extent, departed from. They are, in many respects, materially enlarged and amended, the writer having had access personally to the most recent information on the subject from the best sources.' The title of the second edition has been slightly amended to reflect this change, with 'articles on emigration' of the first edition replaced with 'papers on emigration.'This second edition was distributed in London by Simpkin and Marshall, the title page also includes a generous list of Scottish agents (for Glasgow, Aberdeen, Perth and elsewhere).

        OLIVER TWIST; Or the Parish Boy's Progress

      Richard Bentley, London 1838 - First edition in three volumes in the original publisher's fine diaper cloth with arabesque designs on the boards. First issues with Boz on the title pages (not "Charles Dickens") and with the "fireside plate" in volume 3. Bound with all half-titles and ads as required by Smith. A set that is a little better than Good, but not much. Amatuer repairs to the spines of all three volumes. Internal contents generally clean although with scattered foxing, most noticeable near the plates. Dickens' second novel, "Oliver Twist," is a dark and biting work, but one that is balanced with Oliver's indefatigable innocence and charm. Often cited as the first Victorian novel to feature a child protagonist, it was developed as a social commentary and a call for improving the conditions of London's destitute and orphan children. And it was immensely successful, both as a novel filled with memorable characters and also as a work prompting much needed reform. Today it remains high within the pantheon of Victorian literature and is a work that has been successfully adapted to both the stage and screen. [Attributes: First Edition]

Very good + condition with only minor signs of external wear. Mild foxing throughout. Private gift inscription in the year of publication on front free endpaper. Extremely Rare publication of one of Edgar Allan Poe's favourite contemporary women writers. In "The Literati of New York" - No. IV - Edgar Allan Poe wrote about Emma C. Embury: Mrs. Embury is one of the most noted, and certainly one of the most meritorious of our female [page 77:] littérateurs. She has been many years before the public — her earliest compositions, I believe, having been contributed to the "New York Mirror" under the nom de plume "Ianthe." They attracted very general attention at the time of their appearance and materially aided the paper. They were subsequently, with some other pieces, published in volume form, with the title "Guido and other Poems." The book has been long out of print. Of late days its author has written but little poetry — that little, however, has at least indicated a poetic capacity of no common order. Yet as a poetess she is comparatively unknown, her reputation in this regard having been quite overshadowed by that which she has acquired as a writer of tales. In this latter capacity she has, upon the whole, no equal among her sex in America — certainly no superior. She is not so vigorous as Mrs. Stephens, nor so vivacious as Miss Chubbuck, nor so caustic as Miss Leslie, nor so dignified as Miss Sedgwick, nor so graceful, fanciful and spirituelle as Mrs. Osgood, but is deficient in none of the qualities for which these ladies are noted, and in certain particulars surpasses them all. Her subjects are fresh, if not always vividly original, and she manages them with more skill than is usually exhibited by our magazinists. She has also much imagination and sensibility, while her style is pure, earnest, and devoid of verbiage and exaggeration. I make a point of reading all tales to which I see the name of Mrs. Embury appended. The story by which she has attained most reputation is "Constance Latimer, the Blind Girl." Mrs. E. is a daughter of Doctor Manly, an eminent physician of New York city. At an early age she married a gentleman of some wealth and of education, as well as of tastes akin to her own. She is noted for her domestic virtues no less than for literary talents and acquirements. She is about the medium height; complexion, eyes, and hair light; arched eyebrows; Grecian nose; the mouth a fine one and indicative of firmness; the whole countenance pleasing, intellectual and expressive. The portrait in "Graham's Magazine" for January, 1843, has no resemblance to her whatever. _____________________________________________________________________________ Emma Catherine Embury (February 25, 1806 ?- February 10, 1863) was an American author and poet. Embury was born in New York City on February 25, 1806, to Dr. James R. Manley and Elizabeth Post. She became a regular contributor of juvenile verse and stories to the New York Mirror by the age of twenty. On May 10, 1828 she married Daniel Embury a Brooklyn banker. For a time, she was one of two "lady editors" for Graham's Magazine in Philadelphia, along with Ann S. Stephens. She died in Brooklyn on February 10, 1863. (Wikipedia)

He retired to Exbury for the rest of his life, and made the study of the Greek language his hobby and occupation. After ten years his wife died, and in October 1776 Mitford went abroad. He was encouraged by French scholars whom he met in Paris, Avignon and Nice to give himself systematically to the study of Greek history. But it was Edward Gibbon, with whom he was closely associated when they both were officers in the South Hampshire Militia, who suggested to Mitford the form which his work should take. In 1784 the first of the volumes of his History of Greece appeared, and the fifth and last of these quartos was published in 1810, after which the state of Mitford's eyesight and other physical infirmities, including a loss of memory, forbade his continuation of the enterprise, although he painfully revised successive new editions.Condition:Conditions are Good/Good+.  Some wear to edges/boards, missing a little leather to some corners, last volume missing some leather to lower front board, wear near edges, spotting to end pages, pages/hinges/text blocks are very good for over 175 years old!!!

        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.

        An untitled manuscript map of Cumberland County, New Jersey, and the surrounding area

      [No place but Burlington, Iowa, 1838. Pen, ink and watercolour map of Cumberland County, with the properties of D. Parvin and D. Harris, and numerous towns located, the demarcation line between marsh and solid ground marked, and the routes and names of all the main rivers and creeks shown, some roads marked in pencil, and the route between Salem, Salem Co., and the tip of Cape May marked with a purple dotted line. Sheet size: 16 3/4 x 13 1/2 inches. An attractive map of Cumberland County, in southern New Jersey The Parvin property is identified as being on the southern bank of the Cohansey River in Fairfield Township. The Harris property is in adjoining Downe Township. These are the only two individual properties identified on the map, suggesting that the map was either compiled for or by a member of the Parvin or Harris family. This map was loosely inserted in an 1838 edition of Bradford's Illustrated Atlas , inscribed on the title "Theodore Sutton Parvin, Burlington, Iowa, August 15/ [18]38", and an examination of the map of New Jersey in the atlas shows that the Cumberland County area was squared up for enlargement. All of which gives a source and probable author of the map. Parvin has added some names and geographical features in addition to those shown on the Bradford engraved map. Theodore Sutton Parvin was born in Cedarville, Cumberland County, N. J., on January 15, 1817; and died June 28, 1901. He graduated at Woodward College, Cincinnati, in 1836; he studied law; was private secretary of Robert Lucas, the first governor of the Iowa Territory, and was the first librarian of that territory. Later he was librarian and professor in the Iowa State University; was a founder of the Iowa State Historical Society in 1857, and for the years 1863-65 was its corresponding secretary and editor. He was the founder, in 1844, of the Iowa Masonic Library, and through his exertions this library has its present building at Cedar Rapids. From its foundation until his death, fifty-seven years, he was its librarian. ( Collections of the Minnesota Historical Society , [1905]. vol.X, part II, p.871).

While other works of Williams are recorded in UMI's "Millerites and Early Adventists", this ephemeral publication is not. Not in the NUC, though OCLC shows one institutional holding, at Brown, recording the publication date as 1849, presumably based on the date that WilliamsÕ work Discourse on the Battle of the Great Day was published, and wherein this poem is also found. From the inscription of the verso of this broadside copy, we know a more accurate publication date of [ca] 1838.

        Ueber Schleim- und Eiterbildung und ihr Verhältnis zur Oberhaut (pp.3-62, 1 Tafel).

Erstdruck des ersten eigenständigen Werkes der Dermatohistopathologie! - - Seine Epithelstudien weckten Henles Interesse an der Haut. Am 16. Februar 1838 hielt er einen Vortrag vor Hufelands Medizinisch-Chirurgischer Gesellschaft, der den Titel "Ueber Schleim- und Eiterbildung und ihr Verhältnis zur Oberhaut trug"." Der Vortrag wurde bereits im Mai 1838 in Hufelands Journal der praktischen Heilkund, 86.Bd/5.Heft veröffentlicht und wurde zeitnah besonders abgedruckt. "Ein Jahr vor der Begründung der Zelllehre durch Theodor Schwann geschrieben, enthielt dieses" erste eigenständige Werk "in der Geschichte der Dermatohistopathologie eine Reihe von Fehlern eine Reihe von Fehlern. Zum Beispiel konnte Henle Eiterkörperchen noch nicht von abgelösten Epithelzellen unterscheiden und kam zum Schluss, die Eiterkörperchen für kranke Epithelzellen, Eiterung für pathologische Oberhautbildung zu halten. Viele andere Beobachtungen Henles waren jedoch zutreffend und oftmals ihrer Zeit weit voraus. Zum Beispiel benutzte Henle durchweg den Begriff Zelle. In Bezug auf die Epidermis erklärte er, 'daß man bei der entschiedenen Form und konstanten Verschiedenheit der Epitheliumzellen die Oberhaut nicht mehr als ein unorganisirtes Produkt der Absonderung, als verhärteten Schleim oder dergleichen betrachten dürfe',... 'daß die Zellen sich auf eigenthümliche und selbständige Weise entwickeln, indem nicht nur sie selbst an Größe zunehmen,... sondern auch der Kern in ihrem Innern an Größe allmählig wächst, dabei blasser wird, dann sich abplattet, bis er in den äußersten Zellen der Epidermis zuletzt fast verschwindet. Henle erwähnte auch, dass in Fällen, wo die Oberhaut abfällt, ehe sie ihre volle Entwicklung erreicht hat, ... die Elemente dieser Schuppen ... nicht so dünn, so vertrocknet, wie sonst die der Oberhaut seien, sondern platt, groß, mit deutlichem Kern'. Dies war die erste Schilderung der Parakeratose. ...."Wolfgang Weyers, Pantheon der Dermatologie, Hrsg. Löser & Plewig, (2008), pp.437-442

Selten -Erste und einzige Ausgabe! - - "Eine wichtige Stelle muß in der Zukunft die Combination chemischer und mikroskopischer Untersuchungen in der organischen Naturlehre und der Pathologie einnehmen. " Rudolph Wagner, Vorwort - - Julius Vogel (1814-1880) - "Von ungleich größerer Bedeutung für die Begründung einer systematischen Histopathologie ist das Werk von Julius Vogel, ..."< - - "In Wunsiedel (Oberfranken) geboren, wird Vogel zunächst Kaufmann, fasst dann aber den Entschluss, Medizin zu studieren. 1838 promoviert er in München. In Erlangen Assistent der Poliklinik, wird Rudolf Wagner sein Lehrer und Förderer. Unter Wagners Anleitung erweitert er seine Dissertation zu einem größeren Werk Physiologisch-pathologische Untersuchungen über den Eiter. Mit Hilfe eines Reisestipendiums der Bayerischen Regierung besucht er mehrere Medizinische Fakultäten in Deutschland und verbringt ein halbes Jahr in Paris, wobei er vor allem von Ricord und Andral gefördert wird. 1840 habilitiert sich Vogel in München, 1842 wird er auf Betreiben seines früheren Erlanger Lehrers Wagner, der seit 2 Jahren als Physiologe in Göttingen lehrt, als a.o. Professor für pathologische Anatomie und als Subdirektor des Physiologischen Institutes nach Göttingen berufen. Vogel tritt damit die Nachfolge von Bernhard Langenbeck (1810-1887) an, der 1841 als Chirurg nach Kiel berufen worden war." - - "1846 wird Julius Vogel als o. Professor der Medizin, insbesondere der Pathologie und Therapie, nach Gießen berufen und zum Direktor der Medizinischen Klinik bestellt. 1855 folgt Vogel einem Ruf nach Halle, legt dort aber nach einigen Jahren die Direktion der Klinik nieder, um 1861 die dort neu eingerichtete o Professur der pathologischen Anatomie zu übernehmen. Zunehmend durch ein Herzleiden in seiner Arbeit behindert, tritt er 1873 die Institutsleitung an Theodor Ackermann (1825-1896) ab, der aus Rostock berufen worden war. 1880 verstirbt Vogel plötzlich durch Herzruptur."
