        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' Correct Representation of The State Procession on the Occasion of the August Ceremony of her Majesty's Coronation, June 28th, 1838

      London: Messrs. Fores (Fores' 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's council. All of the documents in this archive are Hoyt'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".

Denn während jedem Teile eines lebensfrischen Ganzen seine Nahrung und Förderung aus dem Musterstamme gesichert ist, muß er sich nun, in Folge der Isolirung, mit eigenen Kräften zu erhalten und durch alle Schicksale einer Individualität emporzuarbeiten suchen. Nichts geringeres ist es, ich kann es mir nicht verhelen - den Versuch einer gerichtlichen Untersuchungskunde in der hier beabsichtigten Weise, nämlich als abgeschlossenes, von der Theorie des Strafprocesses nicht unbedingt abhängiges, auf eigenen Grundsätzen errihtetes Lehrgebäude, zu unternehmen. 1.100 gr.

        ALS to Mitchell, thanking him for his gift of an advance copy of his book

      London,: 6 December, 1838.. Single sheet, wove paper, 23 x 18.5 cm.; some wear along the old folds, but in excellent condition. A fascinating manuscript document, thanking Mitchell for his gift to Queen Victoria of his 'Work on Australia, and a Set of his Maps'.The letter is dated December 1838 (that is, slightly prior to the actual publication of Three Expeditions into the Interior of Australia), and is undoubtedly a significant document relating to Mitchell's fervent desire to be knighted: the Australian Dictionary of Biography notes that during this period Mitchell was in London, where he was much occupied with 'a long correspondence with the Colonial Office to obtain a knighthood.' Lingering doubts about some of his earlier actions delayed the process, but he was duly given the award in 1839.The letter reads: 'Sir Henry Wheatley presents his compliments to Major Mitchell, and begs to acknowledge the receipt of his letter of November 30, accompanied with a copy of his Work on Australia, and a Set of his Maps, which Sir Henry has not failed to submit to the Queen, and which Her Majesty was most graciously pleased to accept, and has directed Sir Henry to express Her Majesty's sense of Major Mitchell's attention on this occasion.'Major-General Sir Henry Wheatley, Baronet (1777-1852), was the Keeper of the Privy Purse for King William the Fourth and Queen Victoria from 1830 to 1846. He had served with the Grenadier Guards in Holland, and was aide-de-camp to Sir Harry Burrard during the Battle of Copenhagen.

Contents mostly clean with just a few pages lightly stained; rear hinge cracked with somewhat crude repair; covers tight. Superb copy externally. Octavo, 312 pages, bound in full black gilt-decorated morocco, all edges gilt. Includes the first publication of five pieces by Hawthorne (BAL 7583), two by Sarah J. Hale (BAL 6816), two by Lydia Sigourney (BAL 17710), and two by Sarah Whitman, Poe's fiancee (BAL 21351). Illustrated with an engraved title page, a presentation plate, and seven of eight engravings (lacking the "The Expected Canoe" plate). Only two of the five Hawthorne pieces are attributed to him in the table of contents: "Peter Goldthwaite's Treasure" and "The Shaker Bride." Four of the five were later collected in TWICE-TOLD TALES. Beautiful example of an early American binding with only light rubbing at corners and edges. The five Hawthorne pieces are "Sylph Etherege" (pp. 22-32), "Peter Goldthwait's Treasure" (pp. 37-65), "Endicott and the Red Cross" (pp. 69-78), "Night Sketches, beneath an Umbrella" (pp. 81-89), and "The Shaker Bridal" (pp. i 17-25)-all unsigned except the second and the last, which are signed.

      London - Walter Spiers, 1838 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautifully bound copy of the first appearance of Robert Smith Surtees' character Jorrocks, the sporting Cockney grocer. First editon thus (the papers were originally published in the New Sporting Magazine). Jorrocks, the sporting cockney grocer, with his vulgarity and good-natured artfulness, was a great success with the public, and Surtees produced more Jorrocks novels in the same vein, notably Handley Cross and Hillingdon Hall, where the description of the house is very reminiscent of Hamsterley. In a Riviere binding (binder's stamp to front pastedown). Illustrated throughout with twelve plates by Hablot Knight Browne, a. k. a. Phiz (collated complete). Bookplate of E. Hulton to front pastedown. Condition: In a full morocco binding with gilt detailing. Externally smart, though with joints cracked, and some light rubbing to the spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and generally clean, though with some small tidemarks to the corners of some centre pages. Overall: VERY GOOD due to joints, but otherwise a very attractive copy..

        Life of Thomas Telford, Civil Engineer, written by Himself; containing a Descriptive Narrative of his Professional Labours

      ..Edited by John Rickman...with a Preface, Supplement, Annotations, and Index. Large atlas vol.: engraved frontis. port. of Telford & 82 engraved plates (some folding, some double-page). 2 printed leaves of title & list of plates. Text: one engraved plate & illus. in the text. xxiv, 719 pp. Thick 4to. Two vols., orig. cloth, each volume with attractive new calf spines & corners. London: Payne & Foss, 1838. First edition and a very nice example of this magnificent book. "Telford was one of the greatest of the early civil engineers and famous for his canals and roads and for his aqueducts and bridges. Many of his works were on a hitherto unprecedented scale and he also played a major role in the developing use of cast iron for bridge construction. The present autobiography is the best source of information on his achievements. It contains copies of the reports, surveys, letters, specifications, agreements and experiments for all his major schemes. These include the Caledonian and Götha (Sweden) ship canals, the Birmingham & Liverpool Junction canal and the Ellesmere Canal with its extraordinary cast-iron aqueduct at Pont-y-cysyllte as well as such splendid bridges as the suspension bridge with its then unprecedented span which took the Holyhead Road over the Menai Strait, the beautiful Conway suspension bridge or the fine cast-iron bridge at Galton which crossed over his own massive cutting for the Birmingham Canal. All these are magnificently illustrated in the accompanying folio atlas, both in section and elevation, and in many cases details of construction together with the machinery and tools employed are also shown. The book was in preparation at Telford's death and was completed by his friend, John Rickman, who had been Secretary to the Commission on the Caledonian Canal."­Elton, Cat. 15, 93. A handsome set. Bookplate in text volume of George Giles and with a letter tipped-in presenting this work to him. Stamp in gilt on upper cover of the atlas volume of the Institution of Civil Engineers. Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. Skempton 1556. .

        An Inquiry Concerning the Origin of Christianity

      London - Smallfield and Son 1838 - The very scarce first edition of this study of the life of Jesus, widely considered to be equal to or superior to the works of Strauss. From the antiquarian library of Emeritus Professor David A. Palin of the University of Manchester (bookplate to front pastedown), collected over a period of almost forty years. This book includes a letter by Palin to John Bowden concerning a 1971 republication of Hennell's work. Strauss was most impressed by a copy of it that he received from R. H. Brabant. He had it translated into German by Ludwig Georgii, and wrote a Vorwort for it in which he describes Hennell as a free-thoughted voice out the so theologically stationary, so behind-lagging England! (From the private library catalogue of David Palin. )Condition: In contemporary cloth binding. Externally, sound, though with some wear to the extremities, some rubbing, and light bumping. Hinges are strained. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are bright and quite clean, though with some ink and pencil annotations to the margins. Overall: VERY GOOD.

Original maroon cloth, maroon morocco lettering-piece in the centre of the front cover (rebacked at an early stage preserving most of the original spine); modern red cloth clamshell box. Provenance: With the engraved bookplate of Joseph Y Jeanes of Philadelphia on the front paste-down. First collected edition, later issue with Bowen imprint rather than Chevalier, originally published in parts: "Wild broke wholly new ground in American prints. Single views of cities from a distant vantage point were usual, but showing a whole city as it appeared in facing each point of the compass from a central spot was an innovation" (Snyder). The first four plates compose the panorama of Philadelphia as viewed from just above the rooftops. Other views include: Fairmount from the Basin, View from the Inclined Plane, Market Street, Manayunk, and Laurel Hill Cemetary. Howes W410 "c"; Sabin 103971; Snyder, "J. C.

        MEMOIRS OF JOSEPH GRIMALDI

      1838. Edited by "Boz." With Illustrations by George Cruikshank. In Two Volumes. London: Richard Bentley, 1838. 36 pp undated Vol II ads. Original pink cloth embossed with flowers, with gilt-decorated spines. First Edition of this early Dickens piece, worked on after OLIVER TWIST and before NICHOLAS NICKLEBY -- during the time leading up to his break with the publisher Bentley. There has been considerable controversy regarding just how much Dickens contributed to this book. We quote from Johnson's biography:~Bentley had acquired a life of the famous clown Grimaldi, long­windedly and clumsily arranged by Thomas Egerton Wilks from autobiographical notes. He [Bentley] proposed that Dickens revise it. Dickens stipulated that his name should appear only as editor, not as author, and demanded a minimum of 300 pounds and a half share of the profits after deduction of expenses, to which Bentley agreed. Dickens did no original writing, except for an introductory and possibly a concluding chapter. His revisions, mostly drastic abridgement, he dictated to his father, who vastly enjoyed his exalted office as amanuensis.~This copy is in the primary binding of pink cloth embossed with a floral design, with a clown in gilt holding the title on each spine. It also has the last plate in Vol II in the first state (without the "grotesque" border that was added around Cruikshank's plate -- the border was removed for the subsequent 1846 one-volume edition). Condition is very good-plus: as always the pink spines are a little faded, and there is very slight shelfwear at the binding extremities (there is also a discreet signature at the top of each title page); the original pale yellow endpapers are present and uncracked, and foxing of the plates is generally limited to the two frontispieces. In all, highly collectible condition for these very fragile volumes. Gimbel B64; Carr B599; Eckel pp 140-142; Johnson p. 242.

        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: being a droll, merry, and humurous Account

      (London), Catnach, Printer, 2, & 3, Monmouth-Court, 7 Dials, nd, circa 1838.. 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.

        Wesh-Cubb, a Chippeway Chief

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph. Good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and slight offsetting with image. 13 5/8 x 8 1/4 inches. 19 5/8 x 13 5/8 inches. 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. Wesh-Cubb was a respected Chippewa leader and a skillful warrior. McKenney described him as a "good, fat, comfortable looking Indian." The Chippewa (Ojibwa) were the most widespread and powerful tribe in the Great Lakes area. 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.
