        "Beiträge zur Phytogenesis"; In: Archiv für Anatomie, Physiologie und Wissenschaftliche Medicin. Jahrgang 1838. Edited by Johannes Müller (1808-1858)

      Berlin: Viet, 1838. First edition. Four leaves sprung, title lined on verso/From the Collection of Allan B. Kirsner, M.D. 8vo. Schleiden's paper is on pp. 136-76. Entire volume: 608 pp. 16 plates at end on 15 leaves, most folding. Early 20th-century cloth. Schleiden co-founded cell theory, along with Theodor Swann and Rudolf Virchow, and was one of the first German biologists to accept Darwin's theory of evolution. "Schleiden demonstrated that plant tissues are made up of and developed from groups of cells, of which he recognized the 'cytoblast' or cell-nucleus. He observed with great accuracy certain other activities of the cell, and is an important figure in the development of the cell theory. Unfortunately he held that young cells develop spontaneously from the cytoblast, an acceptance of the theory of spontaneous generation" (Garrison-Morton-Norman 112). Although his theory of spontaneous generation of the cell was incorrect, Schleiden's work marked an important stage in the development of modem cell theory. Milestones of Science 175; Norman 1907; Printing and the Mind of Man 307a (Schleiden "presented for the first time the notion that a plant, for example, is a community of cells"). Rare.

        Clipped signature ("P. Henry")

      - 3/4 x 2 inch slip, mounted to ALS Henry's son John Henry, Charlotte Court House, VA, November 7, 1838, 4to; docketed and addressed on verso. A cut signature of the Virginia statesman Patrick Henry (1736-1799), whose "Give me liberty or give me death speech" in Richmond in 1775 remains an integral moment in the mythology of the American Revolution. Henry was Virginia's first (and sixth) post-colonial Governor, and served in the Virginia State Assembly as well. The autograph is mounted on a letter from his son John Henry to a Reverend Samuel Alexander, reading in part: "I enclose you my fathers signature, agreeable to promise, cut from an old paper relating to private business. All his papers & letters of a public nature are deposited with the Young Men's Debating Society of Lynchburg & I expect that I have not in the house some letter of an interesting nature containing his signature to send you. John Henry." The Patrick Henry Debating Society of Lynchburg marched in a memorial parade for General Lafayett on July 15, 1836. We are unable to trace any other mention of its stewardship of Henry's papers.

        Bogotá. In 1836-7. Being a Narrative of an Expedition to the Capital of New-Grenada, and a Residence there of Eleven Months.

      1838 - New York: Harper & Brothers for the author, 1838. 12mo in 6s (186 x 108mm). Original mid-blue blind-patterned cloth, printed paper title-label on spine; pp. [2 (blank l.)], [4 (title, copyright statement on verso, preface, verso blank)], [vii]-viii (contents), [13]-312, [2 (appendix, verso blank)], [2 (blank l.)]; extremities lightly rubbed causing minimal losses, spine slightly faded, light damp-marking on upper board and margins of early quires, variable light spotting, a few other marks, nonetheless a very good copy in the original binding; provenance: [?]W.H. Elphinstone, 1863 (inscription on front free endpaper). First edition. Steuart, a partner in 'a celebrated manufacturing house in New-York' (p. 14) embarked on the brig Marcellino on 19 November 1835, to establish a factory in Bogotá and to develop his firm's business in Columbia. The present work is based upon his experiences and observations during the expedition, and in his preface the author writes that, 'The following pages are not intended to afford either a geographical or scientific description of the places therein mentioned, as neither my ability nor opportunities qualified me to enter upon a field which the public are already aware has been so ably and thoroughly investigated. The principal object of this work is to describe "Men and Things" in New-Grenada as the writer in reality found them to be then existing; and, if possible, to afford the man of business, as well as travellers generally, some more correct information on many points of interest to them than myself had been able to glean from the pages of former works on the subject. At all events, whatever defects may become apparent in the perusal of this volume, the writer stands fearlessly pledged to the cause of truth, as well as to that spirit of free inquiry of the age which will rest satisfied with nothing less than the knowledge of stubborn and unclouded facts' (p. [v]). Later writers considered Steuart to be successful in this ambition, and Griffin comments that 'The author recorded what he observed and usually indicates whether he is pleased, neutral, or displeased. He is informative on many social and economic details, less so on politics. His comments on personalities are impressive', while Cortà s Conde and Stein judge the book a 'Good traveler's description of the Upper Magdalena and the area between the river and Bogotá. Includes data on commerce and manufacturing in Bogotá; one of the few good sources of information for the mid-1830's'. An English edition was published in London in 1839.

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

      London, printed for Hamilton, 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'. (ODNB). Not in Bondy, a copy with the same imprint as ours held by the Society of Friends Library.(Copac), others listed with different publishers and printers.

        Corpus di 74 disegni (+ 2 tempere) a matita o sanguigna e alcuni con lumeggiature, tracciati su fogli di vario formato, in carta grave variamente colorata (cilestrina, rosa, grigia, marrone), di cui 42 su entrambi i lati; realizzati presumibilmente (da nota allegata) negli anni '40-50 del sec. XIX; si tratta di studi preparatori all'esecuzione di opere pittoriche: figure intere in varie posture, volti, mani, piedi, panneggi. Non firmati, ma di sicura provenienza: dall'eredità Villa Piatti (asta 2016 Maison Bibelot).

      - Giulio Piatti, figlio del noto editore Guglielmo, allievo di Giuseppe Bezzuoli all'Accademia di Firenze, fu pittore storicista di una certa rinomanza; di sentimenti patriottici (partecipò alla I guerra d'Indipendenza nella 3a compagnia del Battaglione volontari toscani), realizzò quadri a soggetto storico, letterario e didascalico, anche su commissione del pistoiese Niccolò Puccini, mecenate di artisti, che a Piatti offrì un viaggio di studio a Venezia nel 1838, dopo aver acquistato per la Villa di Scornio sia la "Congiura de' Pazzi" (1837: ispirato al dramma di Alfieri), che "L'Origine del Vespro siciliano" (1839: dal Giovanni da Procida di Niccolini), oggi ambedue al Museo Civico di Pistoia. Nel gruppo di disegni segnaliamo anche: studi per il "Pietro Micca" (1842, acquistato da Carlo Alberto di Savoia, oggi al Museo di Palazzo Reale di Torino); disegno d'insieme, studi e inc. in litografia riferiti a quadro del 1844 (giovane madre morente con bimbo) in collezione inglese; un gruppo (comprese le 2 tempere) con soggetto che iconograficamente sembra riferibile a Colombo, ma di cui non siamo riusciti a identificare l'esito pittorico.

        Illustrations of Her Majesty's Palace at Brighton; formerly the Pavilion: executed by the command of King George the fourth, under the superintendence of John Nash . To which is prefixed a history of the palace, by . Brayley

      J.B. Nichols & Son, also sold by R. Loder and James Taylor of Brighton, London 1838 - (21 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches). Wood-engraved title vignette. 31 plates and plans after A. Pugin and others (20 present in two states, giving a plate total of 51): some aquatint, some hand-coloured, some line etchings, some on india paper mounted, some mounted. Expertly bound to style in half black straight-grained morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, spine with raised bands in 8 compartments, decoratively tooled in gilt A unique copy of this valuable record of one of the most extraordinary architectural achievements of the early-19th century. John Nash was largely responsible for adapting Henry Holland's Marine Pavilion at Brighton for the Prince of Wales. Nikolaus Pevsner ( The Buildings of England , Harmondsworth, 1951-74) notes that Nash "kept the shape of Holland's building entirely and only threw his fancy dress over it, and he added as outer pavilions larger rooms than any so far." During the 1820s, acting on a further commission from his Royal client, Nash asked his pupil Augustus Pugin to produce a series of drawings and from these and other drawings a series of plates were produced. These were published in a suite containing both coloured aquatints and uncoloured line etchings under the title The Royal Pavilion at Brighton . The publication methods of this lavish production were somewhat haphazard, resulting in copies of the book not conforming with the list of plates. After Nash's death in 1835, the London publishers J. B. Nichols and Son acquired the plates and were commissioned to print Edward Wedlake Brayley's Careful Survey of the Palace , which they published in 1836. In 1838 they combined Brayley's text with the uncoloured outline etchings, and published Illustrations of Her Majesty's Palace at Brighton , dedication to Queen Victoria. This second issue of the plates is arguably a new work, in that for the first time the plates and text are combined. The work was issued complete with uncoloured outline etchings and text; however, the publishers offered separately-issued coloured aquatints, finished by hand and mounted on card, "to be bound with the Work at the option of the purchaser." Besides including some of these extra, and desirable, coloured plates, this copy includes variants of the uncoloured plates. Abbey describes some, but the present copy is unusual in the large number of different uncoloured and colour-printed variants. Abbey Scenery 62; Tooley 338; Lowndes II, 1651; cf. Fischer, New Berlin Kat., 1977, vol. I (Baukunst England) 2344.; cf. Brunet IV, 14. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        War Dance of the Sauks and Foxes

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and several small light brown spots in the image and margins. 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.Based on a painting by Peter Rindisbacher, a Swiss artist who resided in the Red River Settlement established in Winnipeg by Lord Selkirk in 1811, this work depicts a war dance, possibly the Dance of the Wabana, in which its Sauk and Fox participants are chanting songs with "short, disjointed sentences, which allude to some victory...." Originally from Michigan, the Sauk tribe merged with the Fox tribe in the eighteenth century and inhabited the Great Lakes region of the United States.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.

        SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF THE ILLUSTRIOUS CHAMPION OF LIBERTY, GENERAL GEORGE WASHINGTON; FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

      John I. Donlevy, intaglio-chromographic and electrographic engraver nd, NP [New York?] - Calligraphic bust-length oval portrait of George Washington, engraved by Donlevy, platemark 16 1/2 x 13 7/8 in. Matted, glazed and framed. Within the oval portrait which is based Stuart's "Lansdowne" image, Washington's face has been hand-colored. His birth and death dates are given in calligraphic style. At the head of the print is a small Masonic eye, and under the first word, a vignette of an eagle holding a flag and an olive branch in its beak, an arrows in its claw. Below the portrait is a small image of a hand, palm out, with a heart in the center. Washington's body, the frame around his portrait, and around the lettering is filled with different calligraphic and penmanship styles and types. Faintly creased along an old fold line, else a very nice image. The original image was engraved by R. Lowe in New York, "Presented to -- By -- As a Reward of Merit," (copyright 1838 by Samuel Green), and published by John Donlevy, N.Y. This is the second state, according to Charles Hart's "Catalogue of the Engraved Portraits of Washington," (NY: 1904). The text lines related to Lowe, Green and the Reward of Merit no longer appear, and Donlevy is listed as the engraver. [see entries 862 and 862a].
