        A Bibliographical Antiquarian And Picturesque Tour In The Northern Countries Of England And In Scotland 2 Volumes.

      London, James Bohn, mdcccxxxviii (1838).

Thomas Frognall Dibdin (1776-1847) was an English bibliographer and the founder of the first English private publishing society. He took holy orders in 1805 and published an extensive range of bibliographical books, many with factual errors and lively anecdotes throughout. He coined the term bibliomania and sparked much interest in book collecting and old and rare books. This set covers areas from Peterborough to London on to Lincoln, York, Durham, Newcastle, Carlisle, Dumfries, Edinburgh, Glasgow, St. Andrews, and the border lands of Sir Walter Scott.

        The Great South Land: Four Articles on Emigration

      Stirling,: E. Johnstone, 1838.. Octavo, 31 pp., folding engraved map; paper with some staining and some tears, the map very good, early owner's name; in contemporary rough card wrappers, stitch-sewn, "Australia" in manuscript to front, in red quarter morocco box by Sangorski. Rare: Scottish-printed appeal, showing the South Australian Company still promoting emigration well after the settlement was established.The book is based on articles which had appeared in the Stirling Observer in March 1838; it includes a short "advertisement by the publisher" printing a letter from John Hutt the Superintendent of Emigration, and also openly encourages the curious to apply directly to the South Australian Company in London. A 3-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 of "Part of Southern Australia", based on that in the 1834 work South Australia. Outline of the plan of a proposed colony with the details of the Murray River. This issue of the map was printed by "J. Grieve, Zinco., 33 Nicholas Lane"; John Grieve was a lithographer and zincographer based in London, which is interesting because the Scottish publisher of the book must have been supplied with the maps from London, no doubt at the behest of the South Australian Company.

        Chippeway Squaw & Child

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. unbound. very good. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19.25" x 14". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Children were considered blessings by all tribes, a sentiment evident in this portrait. The commonly used cradleboard is also illustrated. Overall toning with tape residue and chipping along edges. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.

        SNOBSON'S SEASONS

      1838. Very Good. PEAKE, R. B. SNOBSON'S SEASONS, being annals of Cockney sports. (London particular.) London: Published by M. A. Nattali, [1838]. First edition. 91 of 92 engraved caricatures poking fun at the misadventures of sporting men in the horse and hound set, amateur anglers, etc., by Robert Seymour, Dickens' first illustrator. The plates include two illustrated half- titles with the title "Seymour's Sketches." vii, 104 pp. Tall octavo, bound by Bayntun of Bath in green, three-quarter crushed morocco with marbled sides, gilt titling to spine ("Seymour's Sketches" and "Snobson's Seasons"), t.e.g. Bookplate to front pastedown. Binding shows some edgewear and is rubbed at joints, and sunned at spine and top edges. The plates are remarkably clean and bright with faint offsetting of plates to text. Very good overall. Robert Seymour (1800-1836) was a prolific illustrator and caricaturist. Although heavily influenced by Cruikshank's style, his original contribution to the genre was the routine of comic sportsmen from London having adventures in the country. Today he is most recognized for having provided the prototypes for the characters Pickwick and Winkle in the early installments of Charles Dickens' "Pickwick Papers" before his untimely death. Richard Brinsley Peake (1792-1847) was a productive and popular playwright, much valued for his dependability over the course of his forty-year career. One of his many contributions to the theatre was "Presumption, or, The Fate of Frankenstein" (1824), the first dramatic adaptation of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein." He was also a prolific family man who, to paraphrase his own self assessment, though never idle, was often poor. In the 1830s and 1840s he began to publish in periodicals for vital extra cash. "Snobson's Seasons" is a light-hearted history of cockney sports. References: D.N.B.; Houfe, 296; Benezit; Westwood & Satchell, 193. Scare, only two copies at auction in over 30 years.

        Life and Correspondence of John, Earl of St. Vincent,

      London: Henry Colburn, 1838 - 2 volumes octavo. Original mid-blue fine-diapered cloth, title in gilt on the spine, panelled in blind on the boards, enclosing elaborate foliate and floral devices, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. A little rubbed, spines sunned, a little crumpled head and tail, and two small snags to the upper joint of volume I, some foxing front and back of both volumes, frontispiece of volume II, finely spotted, but overall a very good set in the publisher's cloth. Engraved carte-de-visite of Major W.B. Gray, Army Educational Corps mounted as bookplate on the front pastedown of each volume. Portrait frontispiece to volume I, and a chart to volume II. First edition. The earliest full biography of this unjustly neglected figure. Perhaps best remembered for his patronage, as "Nelson's Dear lord", of Britain's greatest Naval hero, St. Vincent pursued a far less spectacular, but in no way way less worthy career, than that of his great protegé; "St Vincent was not a great tactician. The battle of St Vincent, the only major battle in which he commanded, though temporarily deflecting a projected Franco-Spanish invasion, was not decisive and gained its fame largely through the nation's relief at the news of a victory during a gloomy period of the war. His importance lies in his being the organizer of victories; the creator of well-equipped, highly efficient fleets; and in training a school of officers as professional, energetic, and devoted to the service as himself. His mind was firm, clear, and decisive. Although his workload was exhausting, no significant detail escaped him and he excelled in the introduction of major improvements in naval health and hygiene St Vincent's term of office at the Admiralty produced important results. By providing a mass of information on working practices in the commission reports, by reducing abuses and promoting greater honesty and efficiency, and by clearing away outdated customs of work and rewards, St Vincent ensured that the navy was better prepared to meet the challenges of the nineteenth century" (ODNB).

        Oliver Twist; or, the Parish Boy's Progress

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1838. By "Boz." In three volumes. 3 volumes, octavo (183 × 113 mm). Contemporary green half calf on marbled boards, red morocco title labels, flat spine, compartments formed by double rules, volume numbers gilt direct in the fourth compartment, marbled edges, pale green endpapers. Frontispiece to each volume and 21 other plates by George Cruikshank, bound without the half-titles or the terminal advert leaf in Volume I. Spines sunned to brown, a little rubbed, plates browned as usual, some off-setting, occasional spotting to the text, a very good set. First edition, first issue, with Boz title-pages and the Fireside plate. Bentley decided to publish Oliver in book form before serialization was complete, and Cruikshank had to complete the last few plates in a hurry. Dickens did not see them until the eve of publication and disliked the final Fireside plate. Cruikshank designed a replacement, the Church plate, but early copies went out without it. Dickens had also decided that he would no longer be known as "Boz"; again this decision was too late for the earliest copies, those published between 9 and 16 November. This set with the contemporary bookplates of Lord Fitzhardinge at Berkeley Castle to the front pastedowns.

        POEMS

      Philadelphia: Joseph Healy, 1838. Most likely a presentation copy to Henry B. Stanton as it is signed and dated 1838 by the author on the dedication page, which was dedicated to Stanton. Stanton and Whittier were great friends working for the same cause, abolishment of slavery and the restriction of interstate trade. "Whittier struck the key note of his whole career as a reformer when he quoted upon his title page, of this first authorized collection of his anti-slavery poems the words of S.T. Coleridge. "There is a time to keep silence........" The publisher, Joseph Healy was the financial agent of the Anti-Slavery Society of Pennsylvania. Bound in full brown leather, boards trimmed with a single gilt decorative role, raised bands, lettering gilt, all edges marbled with matching endpapers. Upper board may have been repaired or re-enforced at some early date, occasional spots of foxing. A very good copy of one of Whittier's most controversial books of poetry. [BAL21710]. First Edition.

        Mental Maladies. A Treatise on Insanity. Translated from the French, with additions. by E. K. Hunt.Philadelphia: Lea and Blanchard, 1845. First Edition in English.

      The Haskell F. Norman copy, presentation copy inscribed by the translator, of the first the first modern textbook of psychiatry. Norman 727. <br/><br/> "Esquirol's book, compiled from papers and articles published over the past two decades, summarized the experience gained over a lifetime of observation and treatment of mental illness, in which he closely followed the humanitarian principles of his teacher, Philippe Pinel. Esquirol was one of the first to apply statistical methods to clinical studies of insanity. He recognized the uselessness of the traditional terminology for mental illnesses, and created new descriptions and classifications based upon his own observations. He was the first to distinguish between hallucinations and illusions, and between dementia and idiocy.; he also provised the classic description of paresis, coined the term 'monomania' (a concept foreshadowing the modern view of schizophrenia) and distinguished certain depressive states ('lypemanias') from other psychoses. Along with Pinel, Esquirol is regarded as the founder of the French school of psychiatry; his <i>Maladies mentales</i> [1838] was a basic psychiatric text for over half a century."

At one period he gave considerable attention to silk culture. In 1835 there appeared under his authorship The American Silk Grower&#39;s Guide, which included a discussion of the growing of the mulberry. A second edition was printed in 1839."-D.A.B., V, pp, 341-42. This German edition was printed for the large and growing German population in Pennsylvania.

        Correspondence with His Excellency Sir Richard Bourke, K.C.B

      Sydney,: James Spilsbury,, 1838.. Small quarto, iv, 62 pp.; very good in chipped blue wrappers with some wear. Second and best edition: scarce printing of letters in attractive original condition, relating to the controversial dismissal of Alexander McLeay as Colonial Secretary, one of the less savoury events of the difficult final years of Bourke's governorship. McLeay first published some letters regarding his unexpected removal from office in 1837 as a slim pamphlet of 12 pages, which he heavily revised and much augmented for this second edition, which includes further correspondence and a petition of public support for McLeay.Ferguson, 2538.

        Fores&#39; Correct Representation of The State Procession on the Occasion of the August Ceremony of her Majesty&#39;s Coronation, June 28th, 1838

      London: Messrs. Fores (Fores&#39; Sporting & Fine Print Repository and Frame Manufactory), 1838. First edition. Half Calf, Marbled Boards, Cloth Insert Slipcase . Good. A fabulous very long hand-colored leporello, or concertina, capturing the pomp and pageantry of the procession marking the coronation of Queen Victoria. In the age before photos, this souvenir impressively reproduced the entirety of the affair, or something very close to it, and it unquestionably served as a template for later such occasions. The leporello is 1720 by 11 cm, or over 700 inches long. It unfolds by opening from the center, with half to the left, half to the right. The leporello fits into a custom-made cloth slipcase, around which a half calf binder (with marbled boards) enfolds in a rather novel, attractive style of binding system. The outer panels on both sides are heavily soiled and foxed, as is the centerpiece, which lies on the inside of the spine. By the hinges there are abrasion losses, and the centerpiece has cracks running down vertically with trivial losses, and some minor blistering besides. Most of the panels have light soiling but are nonetheless quite bright and always attractive. The original outer casing and title is gone. Missing also is the title tab rendered in French on the left end of the leporello; the tab on the right side rendered in English is present. Happily, the entire leporello is backed with canvas to give it extra strength.

        Collection of American Anti-Slavery Society Documents, all addressed to GEN. DANIEL HOYT

      v.p., 1838-45. (AMERICAN ANTI-SLAVERY SOCIETY) . Overall, very good . General Daniel Hoyt of Sandwich, New Hampshire, was an ardent abolitionist and the candidate several times of the Liberal, or Free Soil, Party for Governor of New Hampshire. He was elected 15 times to the New Hampshire legislature, served in the state senate, and was a member of the governor&#39;s council. All of the documents in this archive are Hoyt&#39;s, and many are addressed to him. The earliest is a lithographed copy of a letter from ORANGE SCOTT, the anti-slavery leader. The letter is possibly a "mass mailing" his "An Appeal to the Methodist Episcopal Church," which appeared in the only number published of the Wesleyan Anti-Slavery Review (cf. DAB article on Scott). Also included: a Printed Broadside captioned "CIRCULAR" from S.H. Parker on behalf of the "Liberty State Committee," annotated with notes to Hoyt; a Printed Broadside of the "Constitution of the American and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society," signed by the secretary LEWIS TAPPAN and addressed to Hoyt; a Printed Invitation from the American and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society to its Sixth Anniversary celebration, to be held in New York City, dated 26 March, 1839; one printed circular from the American and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society Aug. 25, 1845, addressed to Hoyt who has annotated it, by A.A. Phelps of New York City

        Wat_Che_Mon_Ne, An Ioway Chief.

      F.W. Greenough, Philadelphia 1838 - Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Wat-Che-Mon-Ne, also known as the Orator, was known for his peacemaking between warring tribes. Overall toning and offsetting. Slight tape residue along top edge and light scattered staining. One piece from our collection of Native American portraits. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19.25" x 13.75".
