        Paddy-Carr, Creek Interpreter

      Philadelphia: F. W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph by J. T. Bowen. 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. The son of a Creek mother and the Irish trader Tom Carr, Paddy Carr (1808 - c. 1840) is one of the most interesting figures in the Muskogee (Creeks is a white man's designation) history of the pre-Civil War era. He was raised as an orphan in the household of the Creek Indian Agent John Crowell, where he became fluent in English. At nineteen, he went as chief interpreter for the Creek delegation to Washington in 1826 to dispute the Indian Springs Treaty. Both his interpretive and diplomatic skills helped bring about the invalidation of Indian Springs and creation of a new Treaty of Washington, by which the Creeks were permitted to retain a portion of their land on the Alabama-Georgia border. Having inherited a significant amount of land through marriage, Paddy Carr became a successful planter and trader, and a slave owner. In 1836, (when McKenney was beginning publication) he was a owner of a large plantation with a mansion, three attractive wives (one the daughter of William McIntosh) and perhaps 80 slaves. He also kept a stable of fine racehorses. A semi-accepted member of Alabama society, he was second in command of an mercenary Creek militia of 500 to 800 that fought with the U. S. Army in the Second Seminole War in 1836. Despite this service, he was soon compelled to leave the Chattahoochee Valley and go to Oklahoma in 1837, with the rest of the Creeks. His large household of wives, children and slaves made theno mention has been found regarding the racehorses. His beautiful mansion was confiscated. 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, Cornplanter, and Osceola. 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.

        Two Official Letters to Joaquin Ezpeleta Enrile, Captain General of Cuba in 1838-1840, from U.S. Consuls in Havana and Trinidad de Cuba; the First one in English; and the Second One Translated into Spanish by a Havana Translator].

      - Letter from U.S. Consul Nicholas Philip Trist: Havana, Consulate of the United States of America, 18 April 1838. Folio (ca. 30,5x21,5 cm). 2 pp., with an integral blank leaf. Brown ink on paper, official ink stamp of the US Consulate in Havana in the upper left corner of the first leaf. Legible text in English. Mild fold marks, otherwise a very good document. Letter from U.S. Consul Thomas R. Gray translated into Spanish by Luis Paynes [?]: Havana, 29 September 1838 (original document: Trinidad de Cuba, 15 September 1838). Folio (ca 30x21 cm). Folio, 2 pp., with an integral blank leaf. Mild offset, fold marks, otherwise a very good document. Two official letters to Joaquin Ezpeleta Enrile, Captain General of Cuba in 1838-1840, from Nicholas Philip Trist (1800-1847) and Thomas R. Gray, U.S. Consuls in Havana and Trinidad de Cuba. In the first letter Trist congratulates Ezpeleta Enrile on his appointment as the new Captain General of Cuba, and wishes that good relations between the two nations will continue. He reassures Ezpeleta that "to no other foreign country is an event of this nature so necessarily, so intensively or so deeply interesting, as it is to that which I have the honor to represent I can form no better with for the very numerous class of my countrymen who have direct & special personal interests in the prosperity of this magnificent Island, and consequently in the way in which it may be governed, than that the expectation awakened by Y.E's Proclamation may be fulfilled." In his letter to Joaquin Ezpeleta Enrile Thomas R. Gray, U.S. Consul in Trinidad de Cuba files a complaint regarding "an order from this city's chief of navy informing that all captains of American ships along with its passengers may need to present themselves in person," which both "Spanish and American merchants as well as captains and passengers had complained to me about I wish that Your Excellency will be kind enough to arrange that I be instructed competently and respectfully regarding that order so that my fellow citizens may find out about it with expected appropriateness" (in translation). The original letter was written in English (Trinidad de Cuba, 15 September 1838), but we have only an official Spanish translation of it, done two weeks later by a Havana translator Luis Paynes. "Cuba and the United States of America have had an interest in one another since well before either of their independence movements. Plans for purchase of Cuba from the Spanish Empire were put forward at various times by the United States. As the Spanish influence waned in the Caribbean, the United States gradually gained a position of economic and political dominance over the island, with the vast majority of foreign investment holdings and the bulk of imports and exports in its hands, as well as a strong influence on Cuban political affairs. Following the Cuban Revolution of 1959, relations deteriorated substantially and have been marked by tension and confrontation since. The United States does not have formal diplomatic relations with Cuba and has maintained an embargo which makes it illegal for U.S. Corporations to do business with Cuba" (Wikipedia).

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

      Simpkin & Marshall, London 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 {i 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 {i 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).

        Autograph Letter Signed ('Wellington') to Mrs [illegible] at Farley Hall, Reading, 2 pages 8vo with integral blank leaf, Stratfield Saye, 14 December 1838.

      - Thanking her for a note, returning the enclosure, and commenting on the situation in Jamaica. 'I am much obliged to you for your Note of which I return the Inclosure.' ''I am afraid that matters are not quite so pressing in Jamaica' ''As the existence of Prisoners depends upon the Negroes being something more than tranquil, I do not feel satisfied with Sir Lionel Smith's statement.' ''I hope that your accounts of your daughter are satisfactory to you / Believe me Ever Your's most faithfully Wellington'Sir Lionel smith (1778-1842) has been appointed captain-general and commander-in-chief of Jamaica in 1836, where he managed to alienate both the coloured and white populations. Oxford DNB states that 'It was in this context that the house of assembly refused to legislate on the island's prisons in 1838-9, causing a constitutional crisis in Jamaica, and incidentally providing the trigger for the 'bedchamber' crisis in Britain'.

        TEXTS FOR EVERY DAY IN THE YEAR, principally Practical and Devotional. Selected by Elizabeth Fry

      London, printed for Hamiltobn, Adams, and Co.; Edmund Fry; and W. Darton and Son, Holborn Hill, circa 1838.. EDITION UNKNOWN, Preface dated 1831, INSCRIBED BY ELIZABETH FRY THE PRISON REFORMER on the verso front endpaper: "Mary Bullied from Eliz. Fry 1838", very small 8vo, approximately 72 x 54 mm, 2 7/8 x 2 inches, pages:iv, (188), collation: (A)-M8, M8 is a blank with printer's name J. Masters at the foot on recto, bound in mid brown cloth with embossed pattern, "TEXTS" in gilt on upper cover, pale yellow endpapers. Very slight wrinkling to spine, ink note in 2 margins, otherwise a very good clean tight copy. Elizabeth Fry was a Quaker prison reformer who transformed the lives of countless thousands of prisoners, convicts and homeless people, and whose ideas on criminal justice are still practised today. It was Stephen Grellet, a Quaker, who turned her attention to the shocking conditions in which women prisoners and their children lived at Newgate Prison: hungry, cold, dirty, without bedding, even newborn babies without clothing. Elizabeth’s first visit to the prison with baby clothes and kindness established a rapport with the women. Soon she set up the first women’s prison visiting committees and went on to bring order and cleanliness to Newgate.She started the first-ever prison school which was a great success. Later she saw to it that the prisoners were given useful occupation and taught skills. Uniquely for that time, she saw the prisoners as individual human beings and understood their need for self-respect. Her ideas and practices were to be influential and effective throughout Europe and eventually the world. All this Elizabeth did not accomplish on her own; she travelled widely in Britain, Ireland and Europe and everywhere she went her extraordinary compassion, eloquence and energetic common sense galvanised others into action'.

      London, 6./7. Juli 1838.. 3½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo.. Schöner Brief an eine Dame mit dem Bekennen, wie wunderbar er und seine Frau in London, wo sie nun schon an die zwei Wochen verweilten, aufgenommen wurden, und daß er sich vor Einladungen aus Anerkennung seiner Arbeit kaum retten könne: "[ ] je goutais avec satisfaction les effets resultans[!] de mes faibles talents et d'un peu de reputation acquise par les travaux et la conduite de toute ma vie entiere; [ ] et je dois refuser dix invitations par jour [ ]". - Allerdings trübe nun ein Unglück dieses Wohlergehen, seine Frau sei kopfüber eine lange Treppe in ihrer Wohnung hinabgestürzt, habe sich etliche Verletzungen zugezogen, doch, Gottlob, überlebt. Er bitte sie darum, all ihre Freunde über diesen schrecklichen Vorfall zu unterrichten. Sobald es ihr besser gehe und sie zu reisen fähig sei, werde er sie nach Paris bringen. Neben anderen kleinen Gefälligkeiten bittet er außerdem darum, bei Herrn und Frau von Redern, über Teichmann, nach einem Brief des Grafen Brühl zu fragen, den dieser ihm eigentlich vor seiner Abreise hätte zukommen lassen sollen sowie über M. Tzschoppe in Erfahrung zu bringen, ob seine Majestät geruht habe, auf sein Ersuchen im Schreiben vom 4. Juni zu antworten, welches er diesem über den Herren Prinzen von Wittgenstein habe zukommen lassen: "Soyez assez bonne aussi, Madame, de faire redemander a M. et Mme de Redern, par Terchmann, une lettre de [?] Compte Brühl, qu'il devait me rendre avant mon depart, et gardez la entre vos mains, comme aussi de vous informer par M. Tzschoppe, si La Majeste a daigne repondre a ma requete du 04 Juin dernier, que je lui avais fait remettre par M. le Prince de Wittgenstein [...]." - Die Krönung von Queen Elizabeth habe er von ganz nah gesehen und mitverfolgt, und diese entbehre jeder Beschreibung. Alles hier in London sei riesig, grandios und außergewöhnlich. - Der durchrissene Falz fachmännisch restauriert, trotzdem mit kl. Einr., sonst von tadelloser Erhaltung; mit kleinem, alt montiertem Schildchen "38" am rechten oberen Rand der Verso-Seite von Bl. 1.

        Memoria sobre a historia moderna da administração das minas em Portugal.

      Lisbon, Na Typografia da Academia R. das Sciencias, 1838. - Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title page. 63 pp., large folding table. 8°, contemporary plain blue-gray wrappers (small defects to spine at head, foot, and center). Uncut and unopened. In fine condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. According to the author, the modern history of mining in Portugal began in 1801 when D. Rodrigo de Sousa Coutinho became Presidente do Erario and José Bonifácio de Andrada e Silva returned from his metallurgical travels in Europe. In January of 1802, a new law was passed regarding the administration of the iron mines and factories. This survey of developments from 1801 is something of a litany of obstacles and difficulties. Political intrigues, the French invasion, and removal of key personnel to Brazil were among the most significant. Poor roads and rivers which were not navigable hindered exploitation of the richest mines, located in the interior. The folding table gives figures for the mining of coal, iron, charcoal, gold, lead, and antimony. Only the mining of charcoal and gold turned a profit; the profit for charcoal greatly exceeded that for gold. Born in Hesse, Germany in 1777, Eschwege was one of several German mineralogists and engineers brought to Portugal in 1802 to help develop the mineral resources of Portugal and Brazil. He spent the years 1807-23 in Brazil as director of gold mines and curator of the royal mineralogical cabinet. While in Brazil he established its first steelworks and undertook several scientific expeditions into the interior of Minas Geraes. His observations were later published in several important works, including @Journal von Brasilien (Weimar, 1818), @Brasilien die Neue Welt (Braunschweig, 1830), @Beiträge zur Gebirgskunde Brasiliens (Berlin, 1832) and @Pluto Brasiliensis (Berlin, 1833). Eschwege returned to Portugal in 1824 when D. João VI appointed him Intendente Geral das Minas e Metais, a post he held until 1829, when he chose to return to Germany rather than serve under D. Miguel. He resumed his former position in 1835, and ended his royal service as an engineer supervising the renovation of various palaces. Eschwege died in Kassel, Germany in 1855.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 294; see also p. 293: "All of Eschwege's works are rare, and increasingly sought after." Innocêncio III, 168-9 (without mention of the folding table). @Grande enciclopedia X, 22. OCLC: 741195860 (University of Kansas, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek). Porbase locates two copies, in the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal and in the Biblioteca João Paulo II of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa. Not located in Copac. Not located in Hollis or Orbis.

        Memoirs of Joseph Grimaldi. Edited by "Boz"

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1838. With Illustrations by George Cruikshank. 2 volumes, duodecimo. Bound in red half morocco, red cloth boards, spines elaborately gilt in compartments, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Portrait frontispiece, 12 plates. Bookplates, some occasional light foxing, boards faintly rubbed at edges. An attractive set in excellent condition. First edition of Grimaldi's memoirs, edited by Charles Dickens. The task of assembling Grimaldi's voluminous papers had already been tackled once, and Dickens cut again to produce a publishable narrative. Dickens was fascinated with pantomime in general and with clowns in particular, and found a degree of self-identification with Grimaldi, who like him was a spirited, quick-witted and inventive artist, who had a miserable childhood and evinced a lifelong horror of inactivity and of letting any audience down.

Es wurde im selben Jahr publiziert als Johannes Müllers Schüler SCHWANN feststellte, daß die tierischen Gewebe aus Zellen beständen. Müller wandte diese Erkenntnisse sogleich auf die Geschwulstlehre an. Als wichtigsten Grundsatz fand er, daß die pathologische Entwicklung der Gewebe mit der embryonalen total übereinstimme. Diese Entdeckung schließt fast die ganze Lehre von den krankhaften Neubildungen in sich. Es wird Müller's unvergänglicher Verdienst bleiben, den Weg zur Erkenntnis der feineren Struktur der Geschwülste durch das Mikroskop zuerst beschritten und für seine Nachfolger, besonders Rudolf Virchow, gebahnt zu haben. - Wolf, Die Lehre von der Krebskrankheit, I,127ff.: "epochemachende Schrift".; Haberling, Johannes Müller (1924), 198-99. - - THE FOUNDER OF MICROSCOPIC PATHOLOGY - CELLULAR CHARACTER OF TUMORS- - First Edition, in original wrappers as published! - The founder of pathological Histology as an indepedent field, and the first microscopical study of diseased itssue, by which Johannes Müller (1801-1858) showed that the cell theory was a requirement for the study of cancer.

        Beiträge zur operativen Orthopädik, oder Erfahrungen über die subcutane Durchschneidung verkürzter Muskeln und deren Sehnen.

      . Hannover, Helwig, 1838, 8°, VI, 154 pp., mit 18 Abbildungen auf 8 lithographierten Taf., Halbleinen der Zeit mit Rückentitel; St.a.Tit, kleiner Eckabriss i.d. Vorrede restauriert, sonst gutes Exemplar.. BEGINN DER ORTHOP?DISCHEN CHIRURGIE! - ERSTE AUSGABE. Sehr selten. Noch bis in die 30iger Jahre des 19. Jahrhunderts galt die Maxime "Wahre Klumpfüße werden nicht geheilt und müssen amputiert werden." - So kann man verstehen, mit welcher Begeisterung die neue Methode der subkutanen Durschneidung der Achillessehne aufgenommen wurde. Obwohl bereits 1816 von Delpech in Frankreich ohne bleibenden Erfolg angewendet, verhalfen erst die Berichte Stromeyers und die Veröffentlichung seines Buches der neuen Technik zum Durchbruch. Damit begann eine neue Ära in der Orthopädie. Nicht nur der Klumpfuß, sondern auch der Schiefhals, die Skoliosen, etc. konnten einer andern Behandlung zugeführt werden. Nicht wenig zur Verbreitung der neuen Methoden hat der vorzügliche Erfolg Stromeyers in der Behandlung des englischen Arztes William John Little (1810-1894) beigetragen. Little hat darauf hin die Methode Stromeyers in Berlin bei Dieffenbach und später in England eingeführt. -- In diesem Zusammenahng ist besonders erwähnenswert, daß Stromeyer den allergrößten Wert auf eine gute Nachbehandlung seiner operierten Patienten legte (Steckapparate, etc.). - Georg Friedrich Louis Stromeyer (1804-1876), als Sohn eines Arztes in Hannover geboren, begann seine Lehrtätigkeit an der dortigen chirurgischen Schule und richtete zugleich eine Orthopädische Anstalt ein war entsprechend den damaligen Gepflogenheiten zehn Jahre lang in einem bestimmten Distrikt in Hannover als Armenarzt tätig. In dieser Zeit wurde Stromeyer, wie Bade berichtet, ein fgrüher Verfechter der Krüppelfürsorge, da er anregte, "Arme Krüppel und amre missgestaltete Kinder durch Staatsmittel zu heilen und zu behandeln". 1829 gründete Stromeyer in Hannover sein orthopädisches Institut, das bis 1838 bestand und arbeitet nach Delpech's Anregungen. In einem Prospekt dieser "Heilanstalt für Verkrümmte des Hofchirurgus Dr. Stromeyer zu Hannover" wird hervorgehoben, dass die zweite Etage für die Streckbetten bestimmt sein und dass auch gymnastische Übungen zweimal am tage im Freien stattfinden" (Valentin) In dieser Zeit beginnt stromeyer auch mit seinen . wie er sie nennt - "orthopädischen Versuchen", die sich bald zu einer erfolgreichen praktischen und wissenschaftlichen Tätigkeit erweitern. Die damals üblichen unblutigen orthopädischen Behandlungsmethoden, meist mit großen apparativen Aufwand ausgeführt, versucht er zunehmend durch kleinere operative Eingriffe, wie Sehnendurchtrennungen, zu verbessern bzw. erleichtern. - 1838 erhielt er den Lehrstuhl für Chirurgie an der Universität Erlangen. 1841 ging er nach München, 1842 nach Freiburg. 1848 ist er Professor in Kiel und Generalstabsarzt der Schleswig-Holsteinischen Armee. 1854 wird er Generalstabsarzt der Hannoverschen Armee, wo er 1866 bei der Schlacht von Langensaltza seine kriegschirurgischen Grundsätze praktizieren konnte. Noch 1870-71 ist er als Chirurg bei der Schlacht von Sedan und während der Belagerung von Paris in Versailles tätig. Sein unvergänglicher Verdienst, ist es aber die subkutane Tenotomie und Myotomie zum bleibenden Eigentum der Chirurgie gemacht zu haben. - - *First Edition. Rare. Stromeyer is the founder of modern surgery of the locomotor system. He advocated and practised subcutaneous tenotomy for all deformities of the body arising from muscular defects. In Stromeyer's private institute for orthopaedics in Hannover, the treatment of clubfoot was revolutionized. One of his early patients and most enthusiastic proponent of his methods, was the great British surgeon William John Little (1810-1894). The result of tenotomy of his heel cord was so satisfactory to him, that Little remained at Hannover for a period to acquire the knowledge of the technique. At the end of his stay in Germany, he hastened to Berlin to exhibit and teach the new method. He was received by the noted professor Dieffenbach, who in a remarkable short time sectioned 140 tendo-achilles. Little was the first eminent orthopaedic surgeon in the British Isles and the founder of the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in London. - Stromeyer, professor in Erlangen, Munich, Freiburg, Kiel, and successively surgeon-general of the Schleswig.-Holstein and Hannoverian armies, was also the father of modern military surgery in German. His "Maxims of War-Surgery" made an epoch in military medicine. Stromeyer was also a poet and wrote an attractive autobiography. - - Garrison-Morton No, 431; Waller 9320; Valentin, Geschg. d.

      . Berlin, gedruckt und verlegt Georg Reimer, 1838, Folio, 1 Bl., 60 pp., 1 Bl., 4 (1 color.) v. Schumann, Troschel et Müller ad. nat. del., Grüzmacher gestochene Tafeln, Halbleinenband mit Rückenvergoldung u. Rückenschild; feines Exemplar.. Erste und einzige Ausgabe! - Grundstein mikroskopischer Untersuchungen krankhafter Gewebe! Im Frühjahr 1838 erschien dieses epochemachende Werk das über die erste Lieferung nicht herauskam. Es wurde im selben Jahr publiziert als Johannes Müllers Schüler SCHWANN feststellte, daß die tierischen Gewebe aus Zellen beständen. Müller wandte diese Erkenntnisse sogleich auf die Geschwulstlehre an. Als wichtigsten Grundsatz fand er, daß die pathologische Entwicklung der Gewebe mit der embryonalen total übereinstimme. Diese Entdeckung schließt fast die ganze Lehre von den krankhaften Neubildungen in sich. Es wird Müller's unvergänglicher Verdienst bleiben, den Weg zur Erkenntnis der feineren Struktur der Geschwülste durch das Mikroskop zuerst beschritten und für seine Nachfolger, besonders Rudolf Virchow, gebahnt zu haben. - Wolf, Die Lehre von der Krebskrankheit, I,127ff.: "epochemachende Schrift".; Haberling, Johannes Müller (1924), 198-99. - - THE FOUNDER OF MICROSCOPIC PATHOLOGY - CELLULAR CHARACTER OF TUMORS- - First Edition, in original wrappers as published! - The founder of pathological Histology as an indepedent field, and the first microscopical study of diseased itssue, by which Johannes Müller (1801-1858) showed that the cell theory was a requirement for the study of cancer. In the tumors which he studied Müller identfied cells, their nuclei, granules, fibres, and crystals. The illustrations in the book show better than words what Müller saw. He was thus the source for the work of his pupil Rudolf Virchow. - - Garrison & Morton 2612; Long, A History of Pathology, 187-89; Haagensen, Books of Cancer, no. 41

      Paris: H. Fournier Ainé, 1838. FIRST EDITION WITH THESE PLATES n. Hardcover. 241 x 152 mm (9 1/2 x 6"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION WITH THESE PLATES. Extremely pleasing contemporary black half morocco, heavily gilt over marbled boards by Lebrun (stamp-signed at foot of spine), raised bands, spine compartments densely gilt in ornate pattern incorporating fleurs-de-lys, acanthus leaves, and many small tools, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. With many vignettes in text and 240 PLATES (including frontispiece and section titles) AFTER GRANDVILLE. Front pastedown with bookplate of Jules Janin. Ray 191. Just a hint of rubbing to joints and extremities (but this very well masked with dye), minor yellowing, foxing, and spotting to text and plates because of paper quality (persistent without being serious, the second volume less affected), two small marginal ink spots, otherwise a very good copy, sound externally and fresh internally. This is a famous French illustrated book, offered here with both 120-plate series commissioned by the publisher--something rarely found in a contemporary binding like the present one. Ray says that "in these designs, the most popular he ever drew, Grandville presents La Fontaine&#39;s beasts acting like men and sometimes costumed like them. Since La Fontaine&#39;s poems are a veiled commentary on human behavior, this formula works to admiration. Even Oudry&#39;s drawings . . . Do not always match Grandville&#39;s in psychological penetration." Ray further notes that "&#39;Fables&#39; had such a success that the publisher commissioned a second 120 illustrations, which appeared in 1840. Copies are sometimes found with both series, though rarely in comtemporary bindings. According to Ramsden, Lebrun started his bindery around 1830 and received a medal in the 1844 Exhibition. A former craftsman in the Simier workshop, he specialized in ornate spines "à la grotesque." The Almanachs show him in business in the rue de Grenelle from 1840-49. Lebrun bindings appear in the Schiff, Béraldi, and Wittock collections. Our former owner, French novelist, literary historian, and theater critic Jules Janin (1804-74) was often referred to as the "prince of critics." According to the Getty Museum, "he attributed his forty-year success to his having changed his mind every fifteen days, thus continuing to surprise the attentive audience of his weekly theatrical reviews.".
