Contents strikingly clean, with occasional light stains and a few minimal tears in margins. First printing without the border on the last plate.

        Tai-O-Mah, A Musquakee Brave

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph by J. T. Bowen. 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. Also occasionally referred to as the "medicine man", Tai-O-Mah or Taimah, "Thunder" or "He Who Shakes the Rocks" (c. 1790 - 1830) was an esteemed Fox warrior and chief who maintained an amicable relationship with the United States throughout his life. In 1824, he traveled to Washington as a member of the Sac and Fox delegation, led by General William Clark, which signed a treaty ceding their lands in northern Missouri and the southeastern part of Iowa to the federal government. It was during this visit to the capital that Charles Bird King painted the chief's picture after which McKenney's print was made. Taimah was also a leader of the influential Midewiwin or Great Medicine Society, a secret shamanistic society with religious affiliations that McKenney likened to the Freemasons. It is interesting to note given the calm composure which pervades his features that Taimah was suffering from tuberculosis at the time the portrait was being done. He is buried in Des Moines County, Iowa. 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.

        The PERPETUAL ALMANACK; or, Gentleman Soldier's Prayer Book: Showing how one Richard Middleton was taken before the Mayor of the City he was in, for using Cards in Church during Divine Service:

      (London), Catnach, Printer, 2, & 3, Monmouth-Court, 7 Dials, nd, circa 1838.. being a droll, merry, and humurous Account of an odd affair that happened to a Private Soldier, in the 60th Regiment of Foot. The printer James Catnach was active in London from 1814 to 1838 but as there is a mention of Queen Victoria the broadside must date after 1837. Single sheet of thin white paper, 370 x 250 mm, 14¾ x 10 inches, 2 woodcuts beneath the title 55 x 80 mm, 2¼ x 3 inches, 1 showing Richard taken before the Mayor, the other showing Richard playing cards in church, the border to the text consists of 48 playing cards, a different suit for each side and including a total of 8 royal cards. The sheet has been folding twice, it is faintly browned in parts, with a small stain on the reverse near to lower edge which shows through slightly, otherwise clean, a touch of wear to edges, slight small creases to corners. A very good copy. The soldier caught playing at cards during the church service craftily shows the mayor how he reads the bible by identifying each card with a biblical story. This fictional story concludes with the mayor giving the soldier some money and beer, after telling him he is the cleverest man he has ever met. According to the British Museum a record of the incident can be found in Durham University Library Archives & Special Collections (Add.MS.1474). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

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. TPL 2173. GAGNON I:1830. OCLC 12010933, 63013527.

        Travels in Arabia;

      London: John Murray,, 1838. in Two Volumes. Vol. I. Oman and Nakab El Hajar: Vol. II. Sinai; Survey of the Gulf of Akabah; Coasts of Arabia and Nubia, &c. &c. &c.] 2 volumes, octavo (207 × 127 mm). Modern dark green half morocco, title gilt direct to spines, black cloth sides, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Lithographic frontispieces and 5 similar plates, most lithographed by Louis Haghe from Wellsted's own drawings, 5 maps, of which 2 are folding, tables to the text. Spines a little sunned, a few pencil marks to the title page of volume I, text and plates variably, but largely lightly, browned, one plate - Inscriptions at Hasan Ghorab - just a touch cropped, recent collector's plate to the front pastedowns, but overall a very good set. First edition. James Raymond Wellsted (1805–1842) was an East India Company naval officer who made detailed surveys of the Gulf of 'Aqabah and the northern part of the Red Sea, and the southern coast of Arabia in the early 1830s on board the Palinurus. He later travelled in Oman, reaching areas which no European had previously seen and which were not visited again by Europeans for another hundred years. His preliminary papers read before the RGS led to his election a fellow of the Royal Society on 6 April 1837. "Wellsted was an acute observer and not blinded by prejudice or ignorance in his description of the local people. His accounts of the geography of Oman, particularly the irrigation systems and the way of life in remote mountain tracts, continue to be important as a unique description of the country at an early date" (ODNB). His health was severely damaged by disease, and by the wounds suffered in a fever-induced suicide attempt at Muscat in 1837. "He retired from the service in 1839, 'and dragged on a few years in shattered health and with impaired mental powers, chiefly residing in France'. He died on 25 October 1842 at his father's house in Molineux Street, London, aged thirty-seven." A sound, and decently-presented set of a desirable title.

        Plans Raisonnés De Toutes Les Espèces De Jardins

      Paris: Madame Huzard (Née Vallat La Chapelle), 1838., 1838. folio. pp.1 p.l., 58. 59 partly hand-coloured lithographed plates by C.Motte after drawings by Thouin. 19th century half calf, rebacked (corners worn, dealer's small rubberstamp on title). Third Edition, the first to be issued with hand-coloured plates. The French landscape designer, Gabriel Thouin, was a member of a distingished botanical family, his father and two brothers in turn holding the position of chief gardener at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. Thouin's purpose in the present work is not to discuss the theory of the art of garden composition but to provide working plans of all types of gardens, ranging from gardens suitable for simple labourers to those of more ample means. The fruit of multiple observations and fifty years of practical experience, they include designs for parks, symmetrical gardens, orchards, botanical, and pleasure gardens, many of which were actually executed by Thouin. There are plans for two pharmaceutical gardens, a scheme for the enlargement of the Jardin des Plantes in Paris, the public garden in the Champs Élisées, a romantic Chinese garden, a fanciful English garden, the Jardin du Roi, a proposal for an experimental farm in a torrid zone, and numerous country and pleasure gardens. Various garden ornaments and structures are shown in the margins of many of the plans and also on four separate plates. The hand-colouring allows for easy discernment of pathways and areas occupied by water. Berlin Kat. 3483. Brunet V 842-43..

        The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby

      London: Chapman and Hall. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST BOOK EDITION of one of Dickens's most successful works, in extraordinary binding by Hayday, with his stamp. LIKELY A PRESENTATION BINDING: Hayday was the preferred binder used by Dickens and Chapman and Hall for special presentation copies of the period. "The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby had begun its monthly part-issue in March 1838 and was completed in twenty numbers in October 1839. This story, which for thirteen months Dickens wrote alongside Oliver Twist, originated in his determination to expose the scandal of unwanted children consigned to remote and brutal Yorkshire schools; accompanied by Browne, he conducted an on-the-spot midwinter investigation just before beginning to write Nickleby. In this rambling, episodic, often wildly funny book, written very much in the mode of the Smollett novels Dickens had devoured as a child, the Yorkshire school setting is soon left behind, and the gallant young hero and his pathetic protégé, Smike, wander forth to undergo various adventures, both farcical and melodramatic; they are persecuted by Nicholas's wicked uncle and other villains, who also threaten the virtue of Nicholas's pure young sister Kate, but all is eventually set right by the benevolent Cheeryble brothers, though they cannot save Smike. The story is rich in unforgettable comic characters like the endlessly garrulous Mrs Nickleby and the strolling player Vincent Crummles and his troupe, and in places it resembles Sketches by Boz in its vivid evocation of particular London neighbourhoods" (Dictionary of National Biography). ON HAYDAY BINDINGS: James Hayday was one of the most respected binders of the nineteenth century and some of the most famous Dickens presentation copies from the 1830s and 1840s are in Hayday bindings. (For example, the Oliver Twist inscribed to Ainsworth; the Barnaby Rudge inscribed to Talfourd; the Old Curiosity Shop inscribed to Macready; and the dedication copy of Martin Chuzzlewit. ) John Forster, in The Life of Charles Dickens, gives evidence of Hayday's stature for Dickens's works, noting, "a copy of [Pickwick] I received from [Dickens] on the 11th of December [1837] in the most luxurious of Hayday's bindings, with a note [by Dickens:] 'Chapman and Hall have just sent me... three 'extra-super' bound copies of Pickwick, as per specimen inclosed. The first I forward to you, the second I have presented to our good friend Ainsworth, and the third Kate has retained for herself. Accept your copy with one sincere and most comprehensive expression of my warmest friendship'" (Forster, 1911, vol.1, p.86).  "Works bound by Hayday became famous and increased in monetary value.... A number of his bindings are in the National Art Library, Victoria and Albert Museum, London" (Oxford DNB). Complete with 39 plates by Phiz and frontispiece engraving by Finden. Issue points: Nickleby is a notoriously complex book bibliographically. This copy with the most important first issue points, "latter" for "letter" (p. 160) and "visiter" for "sister" (p.123); overall with 32 of 41 textual points as noted in Smith. First four plates with Chapman and Hall imprint (first state); frontispiece without imprint. London: Chapman and Hall, 1839. Octavo, contemporary burgundy polished calf by Hayday, with his stamp on the rear free endpaper; gilt- and blind-tooled boards, gilt-decorated spine in six compartments, gilt dentelles, marbled edges and endpapers. Small closed tears to edges of two plates (p.175, p.188). Browning to some plates (as usual), mostly at edges; text exceptionally clean. Binding with neat repairs to joints and spine ends. A beautiful copy in an important (and likely presentation) binding of one of Dickens's most enduring works.

      BATH KINGSTON ONTARIO ON CANADA 1838 - On offer is a super Upper Canada - Lower Canada Rebellions era twelve [12] page handwritten manuscript addressed 'Monsieur l' Editeur' in French by a woman who appears to be living in a village near Kingston [Ontario]. The anonymous author writes to a newspaper in Lower Canada [Quebec] and denunciates, after the revolts, the necessity of a new church that she says does not betray the courage and the will of the [Canadian] heroes. She begins with the title 'Conduit d'un homme sans principe' and with ardor and passion our writer expresses her desires for the political and religious renewal taking place. There is, near the end, an interesting citation regarding the state of Maine in comparison to the Canadas. We are not certain if the letter was originally signed and then the autograph was trimmed or it was always anonymous on a shortened page. This is a very interesting item of Canadian ephemera at the critical juncture in Canada's history that requires a detailed translation and further research. 19cm x 30cm double folded with a nice legible script the soft paper is a bit frail and as such with expected chips and rubs and a couple of faults but otherwise G. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall

        The BATTLE Of The GREAT DAY. Revelation, XVI, 12 - 21

      [n. p.]:. [n. d.].. 8-5/8" x 4-5/8". 1st printing (presumed). Ca 1838. Single sheet broadside, printed recto only. Seven quatrains, in rhyming couplets.. Period prior owner signature of one "W. R. Wilson", with an. inscription to verso: "A present from Rev / Thomas Williams /. Plainfield / Pn / February 20 [25 underneath] 1838 / William Wilson. [flourish underneath]". Paper foxed & browned, as to be expected. A. Very Good copy.. An extremely rare, and early, 'Millerite'-themed broadside by this prolific, early 19th New England preacher. 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.
