        Ka Palapala Hemolele a Iehova ko kakou Akua

      Oahu,: Na Na Misionari I Pai, '1838' but in fact, 1839.. Thick octavo, a few sporadic stains, tear to penultimate leaf roughly repaired with tape, early owner's translation into English of Hawaiian title-page in ink running under printed title; a very good copy in the original calf binding, well rebacked to match. Important early Hawaiian missionary imprint: one of two separately published parts of the first printing of the Old Testament in Hawaiian, prepared for the American Bible Society at the Mission Presses at Oahu.A number of printings of various books or groups of books of the Bible had been printed as early as 1827, and the first New Testament appeared in 1835. The New Testament was reprinted in 1837, with the complete Old Testament following in 1838-9. These printings were issued quite separately, though the 1837-9 printings of New and Old Testaments are sometimes found together forming the complete Bible in Hawaiian. A second edition of the entire Bible published in 1843 was the only other complete Hawaiian Bible to appear in the nineteenth century.As is often the case with early Hawaiian printings, huge edition numbers are not reflected by current survival rates and each of the three separate components of the 1838 Bible is rare. Documents quoted by Forbes shed a deal of light on the process of publishing the Bible, and demonstrate that the two parts of the Old Testament were translated, printed, bound and sold as quite separate operations. Hiram Bingham wrote of the completion of the translation of this part that "The last portion was pronounced done a few days short of 19 years since our eyes first beheld the towering & dark mountains of Hawaii. Today is the 19th anniversary of our landing at Honolulu". However one may now regard the early missionary activities in Hawaii and the rest of the Pacific, there can be no doubt that the publication of the Bible in the native language represents one of the most significant milestones in the colonial history of the islands.An early owner has translated the title-page in ink, and the early book-ticket "Jonathan Tenney's Library" appears on the front pastedown. At some point the printed words "Buke II" have been removed from the title-page, whether at publication or by one of the subsequent owners of the volume is unclear.Forbes, 'Hawaiian National Bibliography', 1109; Hawaii One Hundred, 52 (part); Judd and Bell, 187.

        Robins's Panoramic Representation of the Queen's Royal Progress Through the City of London, on the 9th November, 1837, Displaying every portion of the Royal and Civic Procession on that splendid and memorable occasion, as well as the Whole Line of Streets from Temple Bar to Guildhall, With their numerous Decorations, the Booths of the City Companies, Christ's Hospital, &c The While extending to Nearly Ten Feet in Length.

      London: Robins, 1838. First edition. Cloth, and housed in a Custom Quarter Morocco Box. Very Good. A stunning leporello of early Victorian pageantry, colored by hand, measuring 10 feet by 3.5 inches when extended, and the imagery is particularly bright and fresh, especially when compared to other leporellos depicting Victorian parades or processions from this period. Scarce, with only four institutional copies located on OCLC. Abbey Life 534. When closed, the oblong item measures 6.25 by 4 inches, and in its box it sits neatly, and elegantly, on a shelf. Occasional light foxing or soiling to the pictorial but overall remarkably clean. The folds are reinforced with fabric. The folds are not entirely even, causing some minor waviness to the paper when the boards are shut. The joints of the cloth boards somewhat crudely restored. Minor blistering to the cloth. The leporello snugly fits inside the attractive box. Minor rubbing and wear to the marbled paper of the box.

        SKETCHES OF YOUNG GENTLEMEN

      1838. With Six Illustrations by "Phiz." London: Chapman and Hall, 1838. Bound in full green morocco, all page edges gilt. First Edition of this anonymously-published book; when this appeared, Dickens noted that it and SUNDAY UNDER THREE HEADS were his only writings to date not issued as by "Boz." Dickens wrote this as a protest against SKETCHES OF YOUNG LADIES, pseudonymously published (by "Quiz" -- probably Edward Caswell -- and illustrated by "Phiz") the year before by Chapman & Hall. That volume classified these "interesting members of the animal kingdom" in such groups as "Lazy Young Lady," "Stupid Young Lady," "Petting Young Lady" and "Manly Young Lady." To quote from Dickens's dedication of SKETCHES OF YOUNG GENTLEMEN to the Young Ladies:~Your Dedicator is humbly of opinion that so many libels, upon your Honourable sex, were never contained in any previously published work... Although your Dedicator is not at present prepared to deny that you are animals, still he humbly submits that it is not polite to call you so... Your Dedicator humbly suggests, that such of your Honourable sex as purchased the bane should possess themselves of the antidote, and that those of your Honourable sex who were not rash enough to take the first, should lose no time in swallowing the last, -- prevention being in all cases better than cure...~This volume of twelve types of "Young Gentlemen," similarly bound and likewise illustrated by "Phiz," was followed two years later by Dickens's SKETCHES OF YOUNG COUPLES.~This copy is bound, without ads, in full green morocco, with marbled endpapers. Condition is near-fine: a bookplate has been removed from the front paste-down, but there is very little wear other than light rubbing at the joints. Gimbel B63; Carr B472; Eckel pp 104-5.

        Offering of the Mandan Indians [Vig. 14]

      Paris, Coblenz and London: 1838. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Himely after Bodmer, blindstamp. 9 5/8 x 12 1/2 inches. 12 5/8 x 18 3/8 inches. Bodmer painted this potent scene of a Mandan skull shrine in November of 1833, shortly before the onset of winter. The shrine was located near the burial ground of Mih-Tutta-Hang-Kusch, and was related to the Mandan beliefs regarding the human body after death and was used as a fasting ground for those seeking supernatural powers. Bodmer and Prince Maximilian overwintered at Fort Clark, between the Knife and Heart Rivers in the territory of the Mandans and the Hidatsas, and made full use of their time to record in detail the life, history and beliefs of the Indian Tribes around them. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures.

        Map of the United States

      Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, [1838]. Period outline colour. Wall map, expertly repaired, backed with modern linen, trimmed in burgundy cloth and on contemporary rollers. Unvarnished. Very good. 37 x 43 inches. All in all, it is one of the most accomplished maps of the nation published to its time. This is the revised 1838 edition of the first map of the United States published by S. Augustus Mitchell. Handsome and important, the map originally appeared in 1831, the year that Mitchell went into business. Mitchell, the leading American map publisher during the decades preceding the Civil War, hired J. H. Young, who had previously worked for Anthony Finley, to produce this new map. Ristow proclaims the map to be an "original production," although it clearly owes a debt to the Map of the United States that Young had prepared for Finley in 1825. Here the format is vertical instead of horizontal, and the western geographical extremities of Finley's map have been eliminated. But Mitchell kept the large inset Map of North America including all of the Recent Geographical Discoveries, and a modified version of Finley's Table of Comparative Heights of the Principal Mountains and Hills in the United States. There are new inset plans of vicinities of eight cities: Albany, Niagara, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Charleston, New Orleans. The upper portions of the map are occupied by a Statistical table; Index of the Counties of the United States, and a lovely engraved vignette with the American eagle that surmounts the title. The map was periodically revised to account for the rapid westward expansion of settlement during the Jacksonian era, and new editions appeared in 1834, 1836, 1838, 1839, and possibly other years. See Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers, p. 309. This 1838 edition not in Rumsey, who lists only the 1831 edition (2723); not in Phillips, America, which lists 1834, 1836 and 1839 editions (pp. 890 & 892).

        THE YELLOWPLUSH CORRESPONDENCE

      1838. Philadelphia: E. L. Carey & A. Hart, 1838. Original drab paper-covered boards with purple muslin spine and printed spine label. First Edition -- and in fact (quoting from Van Duzer): "The first publication in book form of any of Thackeray's works, and notable in its being published in America and not in England." These comic memoirs of a footman (written in his cockney vernacular) had appeared in Fraser's Magazine in 1837-1838, where they were noticed, from across the Atlantic, by Carey & Hart. Three years after this book was published, they did appear, though revised, in an 1841 English anthology of "Comic Tales & Sketches" -- but the first English publication of The Yellowplush Correspondence alone was not until 1854. The fact that the text in this book begins on p. [13] has led many to believe that a Preface might have been intended, but never included. ~This copy is still in the original fragile boards-and-label, and is in very good condition, with quite minor edge-wear; the spine label is rubbed at its edges (affecting just the "Y"), and as always the purple cloth spine is sunned to a light tan. Van Duzer 235.

        OLIVER TWIST; or, The Parish Boy's Progress

      London: Richard Bentley, 1838. 3 volumes. First edition, first issue with the Fireside plate and Boz on the title page. With 24 engravings by George Cruikshank. 8vo, very handsomely bound in antique three quarter green morocco over marbled boards, the spines beautifully decorated with raised bands gilt stopped and double gilt ruled, compartments elaborately gilt tooled, two compartments lettered in gilt, t.e.g. (4), 331; (4), 307; (2), 313 pp. An unusually nice set of the rare first issue, bindings in a fine state of preservation, the gilt clean and bright, the dark-green morocco still without fading. A VERY HANDSOME SET OF THE FIRST EDITION AND ISSUE OF OLIVER TWIST. This was Dickens's second novel, following quickly on the enormous success of THE PICKWICK PAPERS. It was published in volume form six months before it was completed in serial form, and Frederic Kitton states that 35 London booksellers contracted for only 528 copies. But although those London booksellers may have had their initial doubts, the book was and still is one of Dickens' most popular novels. The bindings are especially pleasing on this set and the text is unusually clean and fresh.

        Oliver Twist; or, the Parish Boy's Progress

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1838. By "Boz." In three volumes. 3 volumes, octavo (189 × 117 mm). Early 20th-century red half calf, green morocco labels, 4 raised bands, red speckled edges. Housed in a red cloth slipcase. Frontispiece to each volume and 21 plates by George Cruikshank. All half-titles present; bound without terminal advert leaf in vol. I. 2 bookplates to each volume. Spine faded, bindings a little rubbed and scuffed, spotting and toning to title page and occasionally to contents. 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.

(Anderson 337) Schreiber [née Bertie; other married name Guest], Lady Charlotte Elizabeth, translator, businesswoman, and collector who working with Welsh clerics, and drawing upon the research prompted by the Romantic revival and translations started by Welshmen such as William Owen Pughe, she undertook the mammoth task of transcribing and translating twelve Welsh tales into English. Initially published in parts—the first, an Arthurian romance, ‘The Lady of the Fountain’, appearing in 1838—the enterprise culminated in the magnificent three-volume production The Mabinogion (1849). Eleven of the tales were from the medieval Llyfr coch o Hergest (Red Book of Hergest), and consisted of the four branches of the Mabinogi, three Arthurian romances (Lady Charlotte has been credited as the first to recognize their European analogues), and four independent tales. She also included the sixteenth-century tale ‘Taliesin’, illustrations, and her own learned notes. See ODNB.
