        Songs Of Innocence And Of Experience, shewing the Two Contrary States of the Human Soul.

      London: W. Pickering, Chancery Lane, and W. Newbery, 6, Chenies Street, Bedford Square, 1839. Small 8vo, xxi, (3), 74 pp. Original pebbled plum cloth, upper cover lettered in gilt (partly worn away as often), a very good copy in a variant original binding, slightly worn around the edges, upper hinge a touch weak, internally bright and very attractive. First Typographical Edition, the issue with the poem “The Little Vagabond” not present - this has long been held to be the first issue (see Keynes) although others have claimed that it was present but cancelled due to content and thus this is the second issue. Either case is plausible; copies of each issue turn up with about the same frequency which is to say very rarely. The preface (by J.J. Garth Wilkinson) gives a mostly favorable account of Blake’s life in the context of his work and concludes stirringly: “If the volume gives one impulse to the New Spiritualism which is now dawning on the world;-if it leads one reader to think, that all Reality for him, in the long run, lies out of the limits of space and time; and that spirits, and not bodies, and still less garments, are men; if it gives one blow, even the faintest, to those term-shifting juggleries which usurp the name of “Philosophical Systems,” (and all the energies of all the forms of genuine Truth must be henceforth expended on these effects,) it will have done its work in its little day...” Keynes, Blake, 135 (issue without “The Little Vagabond"). Bentley, Blake Books, 171 (this issue said by Bentley to have two leaves cancelled by the editor out of prudishness).

        Rotterdam plattegrond - Temminck.

      Platte grond der stad Rotterdam, vervaardigd volgens kadastrale plans, opgedragen aan Edel Achtbare Heeren Burgemeester en Wethouders dezer stadUitgegeven in 1839 door L.F. Temminck, in koper gegraveerd door D. Veelwaard en Zonen, gedrukt op vier bladen door Wed. Koning & Brugman. Deels later, met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 75 x 123 cm.Steeds weer bestond bij Rotterdamse stadsbestuurders behoefte aan een grootschalige betrouwbare kaart waarop ook alle percelen zijn aangeduid. In 1827 wordt door de fabriekmeesters, die de directie voeren over de Fabricage, de technische dienst van de stad, bij Burgemeesters en Wethouders aangedrongen op het laten vervaardigen van een plattegrond van de gemeente. Pas twaalf jaar later wordt deze wens vervuld door Leonardus Temminck, controleur en bewaarder van het kadaster van Rotterdam. Aan het stadsbestuur worden vijf gekleurde en vijf ongekleurde exemplaren geleverd.Sinds de verschijning van de vorige kaart (in 1800) is het gebied van de gemeente behoorlijk uitgebreid. De gemeente Cool is ingelijfd, West-Blommersdijk en Oost-Blommerswijk en Rubroek staan nu voor het eerst op een plattegrond.Door de zeer dichte bebouwing van de binnenstad is het Temminck, door het ontbreken van gegeven daarover, niet overal mogelijk geweest de onbebouwde gedeeltes van de percelen weer te geven, maar slechts de kadastrale perceelgrenzen. Het grondgebruik buiten de singels is op de kaart wel mooi aangeduid. Met name van de tuinaanleg wordt een prachtig beeld gegeven. Een groot aantal straten, stegen en wateren, openbare gebouwen, bedrijven en buitenplaatsen zijn aangeduid. Dit en de zeer precieze kartering, maken deze kaart tot een uiterst belangrijke bron van kennis van Rotterdam aan de vooravond van de ingrijpende veranderingen, die de stad in de negentiende eeuw zou ondergaan.Prijs: € 5.950,- (incl. 21% BTW, incl. lijst).

        Manuscript Journal - Transport of Convicts - Australia Penal Colonies & Timber Trade

      Australia, 1839. Tasmania, Sydney, New Zealand, 1839-1841. Unpublished manuscript fair journal of an early expedition to New Zealand made by Thomas Laslett, a notable timber purveyor for the Royal Navy's Admiralty, drawing from this original diary and centering first on the conveyance of convicts to Van Diemen's Land and Sydney, then both penal settlements; and also on interactions and negotiations with Maori chiefs with respect to Britain's growing timber needs. 8vo. 117 pages, plus a single page preface signed in the original by the author. Mauve leather over marbled boards, manuscript label to front. Volume measures approximately 18 x 23 cm. Fading to boards, substantial loss to spine, otherwise in very good condition internally, a significant unpublished primary source account of Australia's penal colonies. Penned upon his retirement in 1880, Laslett's journal draws directly from his own on-the-spot travel accounts, describing "my third voyage to New Zealand... the then passing events... many pleasant days... also... occurences that may as well be forgotten... our ship HMS Buffalo being wrecked during a gale wind in Mercury Bay...", so stated in his preface. The National Library of New Zealand, Alexander Turnbull Collections, also holds three of Laslett's fair journals for these voyages. A sketch drawn by Laslett of the wreckage of HMS Buffalo, is held at the Royal Naval Library in London. Safe and successful conveyance of convicts to Australia's penal settlements, as well as New Zealand timber gathering and trade negiotations with indigenous chiefs, are the principle areas of focus in this early manuscript account. The demise of convict ship / timber transport HMS Buffalo is also described firsthand, Laslett being on board at the time of the wreckage, actively engaged in the attempt to salvage cargo, personal belongings, and the fine vessel which he had come to know so well. Dealing largely with the transport of convicts from Upper Canada to Australia's penal settlements in Van Diemen's Land and New South Wales, Laslett includes a notable description of Quebec City and outlying regions, as well as villages flanking the Saint Lawrence River, and his impressions of the French Canadians. Following this is an equally captivating account of colonial Sydney including Cockatoo Island and a female convict factory. He then delves into the important quest for perfect trees to fell and shape, and important negotiations with Maori chiefs, and finally the wreck of the HMS Buffalo. Herein the timber trader recounts with much detail the successes, and a calamity, of his third expedition to New Zealand, from 23 May 1839 to 8 March 1841. Appointed Head Purveyor of the expedition, Laslett joined HMS Buffalo on 18 May 1839, after receiving his instructions from Sir William Symonds (1782-1856), Surveyor of the Fleet, Royal Navy. A substantial detachment of the Royal regiments, which included a convict guard, boarded the ship, and on the 27th HMS Buffalo began her final voyage to the colonies, stopping in Quebec and Newfoundland to pick up convicts, some of them being political prisoners, destined for Hobart and Sydney. [Approximately 164,000 convicts were transported to the Australian colonies between 1788 and 1868 on board 806 ships. Some 75,000 of these were sent to Van Diemen's Land from 1803 when the state was created as a penal settlement of the British Empire, a territory within the colony of New South Wales, until transportation ceased in 1853.] He describes major growth and development in Sydney since having first visited in 1833. With new streets and housing he estimates some thousands of emigrants arriving every year, settlers beginning new lives were all employed and earned handsome wages. The population, he notes, is a mix of upper class settlers, "Bounty Immigrants" seeking opportunity, some Australia-born Europeans, the emancipated convicts who had completed their period of servitude, and the numerous convicts which continued to arrive. Evidently, exorbitantly priced merchandise, produce in particular, a great deal of heavy drinkers, and armed lawless "bush rangers" in rural areas, were common adversities to contend with in this era. Historic figures are mentioned including Captain Ranulph Dacre (1797-1884), London born master mariner and merchant, who first visited New South Wales in August 1823 as commander of the Elizabeth, who traded with the Society Islands and New Zealand in the schooner Endeavour of which he was part-owner, and who subsequently in 1831 settled in Sydney and supplied masts to the Admiralty and formed a spar station at Mahurangi, New Zealand. Recording events contemporary to the Treaty of Waitangi, Laslett further describes in detail his interactions with New Zealand tribes, and the various challenges of his commission. A timber-cutting camp was erected Te Karo Bay, some 4 miles north of Tairua on the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula. Unfortunately, only 22 spars had been felled when in July 1840 strong easterly gales in Mercury Bay forced the ship ashore. HMS Buffalo was beyond repair, causing an early return to England on the 'Bolina'. [A later court martial in England exonerated Captain Wood.] The author was in the region for over four years, became a timber expert gainfully employed by the British Admiralty, and came to know the tribes rather intimately. It is most conceivable that he played a role in treaty discussions. At time tenuous, fascinating interactions with local Maori tribes showcase the vast differences and subtle similarities between western and aboriginal societies. Capital punishment, for example, was commonplace for both, however cannibalism is presented by the New Zealand natives as a suitable part of the equation. Of secondary interest, we find occasional mention of then current Antarctic discoveries, including the Wilkes Expedition, which resulted in a section of Antarctica being later named after the captain and discoverer, Wilkes Land. French explorer Jules Dumont d'Urville, who spent months exploring the Polynesian islands, and who left Hobart 1 January 1840 for his second Antarctic voyage. Finally, Laslett records the final hours of HMS Buffalo, an important ship in the maritime history of both South Australia and New Zealand, having been used to transport convicts and colonists, having served as a quarantine facility, and having been a transport ship for the timber trade. Excerpts from the manuscript: "voyaging up the St. Lawrence... all the way from Labrador Coast to Montmoreni [Montmorency River]... preparation had to be made for the reception of the convicts, for conveyance to Hobart Town and Sydney... according to a plan furnished by the Admiralty...Mr. Joseph Archer, Joiner, Upper Town, Quebec, was employed..." "... Completed the fitting of the Prison... Mr. Archer sent in his claim for labour and materials... the ship was considered ready to receive the Political prisoners for Van Diemens Land, and Sydney..." [On 28 September 1839 HMS Buffalo sailed from Quebec with 83 American patriots and 58 French prisoners from Lower Canada, who were convicts and part of the Upper Canada Rebellion. The Americans were transported to Hobart, Tasmania and the French convicts were brought to Sydney, New South Wales.] "27th Sept. This morning the steamer British America brought from Montreal, and put them alongside, 58 political convicts, these were nearly all of the German class, and Canadian born, most of them well if not respectably dressed... they mourned for their country and their families... In the afternoon the steamer St. George brought from Montreal, and put them alongside 83 political convicts, they were nearly all Americas, men who had come over the frontier in Upper Canada to try their fortunes in the rebellion or civil war, waged by the disaffected Canadians against the Loyalists and regular Imperial troops, their characters were considered very bad, and altogether of a different stamp to the Canadian convicts, consequently they came heavily ironed under a heavy guard of soldiers... Although these two batches of convicts had been engaged together in the rebellion, no good feeling existed between them..." "A few days after the embarkation of our prisoners some few of the convicted men... were liberated on giving security for their good behaviour to the extent of £1000, and that they reported themselves once a month to a Magistrate..." "A strong suspicion... mischief was brewing and further precautions were taken to guard ... only 36 prisoners on deck at one time for the future... there was no relaxation of the guard kept upon the prisoners... 18th - Our convict informant told the Inspector that the thought there was still some plotting going on... the convicts boxes were examined and some razors, knives, forks and lucifer matches were found..." "One of the convicts died, he had suffered greatly from sea sickness, and fever supervening it..." "the Brazilian Coast... sighted Cape Frio... anchored in the harbour of Rio de Janeiro near the Blanc Stairs... This being the 14th birthday of the Emperor, it was celebrated with much pomp and ceremony all the finery of the city... the Emperor with the procession passed through this gateway..." "Hobart Town... ... The Muster Masters Clerks came on board to take description of the 82 American prisoners previous to their disembarkment and next day they were landed at Sandy Bay...." "The Convict Guard under Ensign Irby of the 51st Regmt left the ship for the garrison..." "Four men were executed in front of the gaol at Hobart Town at 8 o'clock this morning for murder... all came to the colony as convicts." "While at Hobart Town I visited the Penitentiary and saw there 25 prisoners on the Tread Wheel... they were for the most part incorrigible convicts." "Sydney...About halfway up we came to Cockatoo Island, also a Penal station upon which a great many of convicts were employed in excavating chambers for the storage of grain... there is a large Barrack for the accommodation of about 200 men sentenced for local offences..." "Next day I visited the Female convict factory where about 950 women were employed on making up clothing &c... it was said that they were very difficult to manage - and about as bad as they could be in character..." "... The Canadian prisoners were disembarked today and landed at Longbottom Stockade for employment upon the roads and other work as may be required, much sympathy was felt for these political convicts...." "The United States discovery ships came in this morning (11th March) from a cruise to the Southward, where it is said they had first seen land on 19th January 1840 in about Lat 64.20 S. Long 97.45 East to.... a stretch about 1300 miles.... Commander Wilkes fleet consists of the Vincennes and Peacock Frigates and the Flying Fish and Porpoise schooners..." [From Sydney, Wilkes sailed into the Antarctic Ocean in December 1839 and reported the discovery "of an Antarctic continent west of the Balleny Islands" of which it sighted the coast on January 25, 1840.] "... the French navigator Commodore d'Urville with the ship Astrolabe and Zelee... on the 18th February... discovered land in the 66.S.130.E. about the same time as the Americans made their discovery." "... At dusk this evening two seamen prisoners... managed to make their escape by taking the jolly boat and pulling for the shore... failed to catch them." "Sunday, April 5th 1840, HMS left Sydney for New Zealand... landing at Kororarika... we found about 80 Europeans living there, some in cottages, some in huts and a few in tents... as much as 3 guineas per foot frontage had been paid for the best sites..." "Interrogated by an interpreter the natives said they did not like the woman being kept to give evidence, they would prefer that the murderer should be given up to them, that they might kill him and eat him too, which they thought would be better than hanging the man... The case was very strongly argued..." "29th April, The French discovery ships Astrolabe and Zelee arrived and after a slight refit sailed again on the 5th May for a cruise..." [HMS Buffalo wreckage] "August 3rd 1840... the bilge was broken, false keel and rudder gone, while the hull was also broken and hogged, and deeply embedded in the sand. With these defects we were of the opinion that the ship was not hopelessly damaged... I managed to get from my cabin all my effects, but they were sadly damaged from having been several days immersed in salt water..." "... The natives who had given assistance during the gale when the ship was lost... 29th Everything of value that could be got from the wreck having been rescued, the Buffalo was finally abandoned." End Excerpts. Thomas Laslett (1811-1887), Timber Inspector for the Admiralty, began his career as a Purveyor of Timber at the age of 22, his first four expeditions seeing him to New Zealand to procure high-quality timber suitable for mast and spars for large Royal Navy ships, which required him to penetrate sometimes hostile tribal regions. Laslett was born at Poplar, Middlesex on 18 June 1811 and was baptised at the East India Dock Chapel there. He was the eldest child of Thomas Laslett, a shipwright, and as such had begun apprenticing as a shipwright before being presented with the opportunity to work abroad. Indeed having found his calling and impressed the Admiralty, he was sent on three further missions to remote places with important timber stocks. As Timber Inspector for the Admiralty, from 1847 to 1849 he was commissioned to inspect teak in Burma, mainly Moulmein (Mawlamyine) and environs. He was employed to survey and report upon some forests near Russia in Asia Minor, and in 1859 made an expedition to the Anatolian Highlands around Bursa in Turkey during the period of Ottoman reign. An expedition took him through Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1860 (then the Ottoman provinces of Bosnia Vilayet and Vilayet of Kosovo). These latter two expeditions, again to little-known remote regions, were undertaken in hopes of locating untapped sources of high-quality oak. Settling near home, he was Timber Inspector of Woolwich Dockyard until 1869 and for many years later Timber Inspector for the Admiralty. In 1875 Laslett published a book titled "Timber and Timber Trees: Native and Foreign". He retired from active service in April 1880 and was subsequently employed by the Admiralty to make special surveys of timber on various occasions at home and abroad. He was also commissioned by the Society of Arts to report on timber exhibited in the Colonial and Indian Exhibition at London in 1886. He suffered a heart attack and died the at Woolwich Dockyard Railway Station on 6 April 1887. Early Timber Trade: Traders from the Australian colonies began visiting in New Zealand harbours after the first trading ship, the Fancy, arrived in the Hauraki Gulf in 1794. Its crew felled trees beside the Waihou River, with the help of Maori. Other ships visited between 1798 and 1801, taking kahikatea, but many logs rotted or were lost at sea. The Maori refused to haul felled logs out of the forest for some crews who did not respect their customs. Differing views led to disaster in 1809 when the ship 'Boyd' called at Whangaroa Harbour to get timber. Whangaroa Maori, who believed the captain had ill-treated the chief, Te Ara, while was travelling onboard, massacred most of the crew and passengers, and burned the ship. Consequently, in 1809, New Zealand timber trade came to a halt. In 1814 some missionaries, including William Hall who was a carpenter by trade, were sent to the Bay of Islands, together with three labourers and sawyers. They taught local Maori how to saw timber to European requirements. Timber and flax cargoes were sent to New South Wales to help fund the mission. In the early 1820s, the British Royal Navy discovered kauri, an ideal timber for spars, at Hokianga, Kaipara, Coromandel, Manukau and Tauranga harbours. By 1827, the Royal Navy had tested had proven that kauri was stronger and lasted better than kahikatea. The British government subsequently began to encourage the timber trade. Timber increased in demand for housing and for ships with the Australian colonies growing from the 1830s. Kauri was preferred, but woods such as kahikatea, rimu and totara were also used. Skilled European tradesmen were needed to choose the correct trees and supervise felling and milling. Also required were Maori workers prepared to haul and load the trees; they worked in return for goods such as blankets, tools, tobacco and firearms. Maori tribes often wanted to attract timber trade, which they controlled by bargaining over cutting rights or labour. Sometimes port fees were charged, and some Maori became skilled sawyers and traders. In the mid-1830s, one third of the North Island's European male population was involved in the timber trade, inclusive of ex-convicts and wealthy merchants. British interest in New Zealand increased, and in 1840, New Zealand became a British colony under the Treaty of Waitangi. HMS Buffalo, built in 1813 and originally named the Hindostan, is an important vessel in the maritime history of South Australia, serving at times as a quarantine, transport or colonisation ship, while also aiding the British expansion into New Zealand, New South Wales, Tasmania, and Upper Canada. She made three voyages to New Zealand, Laslett being onboard for all of them. In January 1833 she was fitted as a convict ship, and was put under the command of F.W.R. Sadler. HMS Buffalo first sailed from Portsmouth to Australia on 12 May 1833, arriving on the 5th October. She carried 180 female convicts, one of whom died on the journey. On 28 September 1839 HMS Buffalo sailed from Quebec, Canada, with 82 American patriots and 58 French prisoners from Lower Canada who were convicts and part of the Upper Canada Rebellion. The Americans were transported to Hobart, Tasmania, while the French convicts were brought to Sydney, New South Wales. At 589 tons, 36.6 metres long and 10.3 metres in beams, and capable of carrying 174 passengers (twice the number of any of the other nine ships that reached South Australia in 1836), HMS Buffalo was a large and notable ship. For each of her voyages to New Zealand, she was fitted for the transport of convicts, and then re-fitted as a timber carrier for her return. The Treaty of Waitangi was signed on 6 February 1840 by representatives of the British Crown and various Maori chiefs from the North Island of New Zealand, ultimately resulting in the declaration of British sovereignty over New Zealand by Lieutenant Governor William Hobson in May following. Despite controversies and debate surrounding breaches and translation issues, today the Treaty is generally considered the founding document of New Zealand as a nation. The settlement of Sydney began its life as a penal colony, with a total of 568 male and 191 female prisoner convicts with 13 children, 206 marines with 26 wives and 13 children, and 20 officials having made the voyage. Their earliest huts were composed of cabbage-tree palm, while the convicts were housed in huts made of boards wattled with slender twigs and plastered with clay. By 1790, however, there were 40 convicts employed making bricks and tiles, 50 brickie labourers, and 4 stonemasons. . Very Good.

        Punka Indians camped on the banks of the Missouri

      Paris, Coblenz and London, 1839. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Salathé after Bodmer, issue with no date after English imprint. On 11 May, whilst the steamer Yellow Stone was stopped near White Bear Bluffs, three Ponca Indians came aboard. They were given a lift up-river to their camp near Bazile Creek. Bodmer here sketches the moment when these three, including their chief Schuh-De-Gá-Che (`He Who Smokes'), were ferried ashore, to be greeted by an enthusiastic welcoming party of curious children and adults all wrapped in furs or blankets. Their camp of tipis can be seen in the forest margin beyond. The Ponca (Panka, or Punka), whose name denotes `sacred head', are closely related to the Omaha, Osage and Kansa Tribes, all of whom speak the same dialect. 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.

        La Sainte Bible...revue...par David Martin....

      New York: Stéréotypé par Henry W. Rees, pour la Société Biblique Americaine, D. Fanshaw, Imprimeur 8vo. 819 [1 (blank)] pp., 261, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1839–40 Only the second edition in the U.S. of the Martin edition of the French Bible. (Prior to 1835, the American Bible Society favored using the text of the 1805 French Bible.) Binding: This copy is exquisitely bound in full black leather in good imitation of morocco, elaborately stamped in gold on the covers forming a five-element frame or border, with gilt tooling on the board edges and with gilt inner dentelles. The spine has slightly raised bands and elaborate gold stamping in its compartments. => This is the second copy of this Bible that we have had and we are convinced that this is a publisher's deluxe leather binding. A choice of colors was apparently available, for the other copy we had was of an olive-green color. Provenance: The name "Sarah B. Leverett" is lettered in gilt on the front cover, and the same name is given in precise gothic calligraphy on the front free endpaper. Bound as above, corners a little bumped with a bit of long ago refurbishing thereto, dulling outermost elements of gilt border (only) on front cover, just at those corners. Evidence to endpapers of the volume's once having been sewn into a chemise or wrapper; old notes just discernable (not really readable) in a minute hand on front free endpaper (i.e., "behind" Sarah's name). Faint waterstaining in lower inside area for the first few pages (only). The whole very attractive and well preserved.

        Poems and Translations by Reginald Heber - Signed - 1829

      Hardcover. Good. 1/2 calf. Bears the signature of Henry Trollope on title, notes of his journeys on the rfep. Also three very neat manuscripts in Trollope's hand; 1. a shortened biography of Heber, 2. a poem omitted from the collection. 3. Some notes on a place mentioned in one of the poems. All neatly bound in. Henry Trollope was an important military leader in Britain. He served at Bunker Hill and the siege of Boston during the Revolutionary Wary and also in the Napoleonic Wars. He was knighted and of great reputation, but took his own life in 1839. More importantly, though not less interestingly, is a fine original holograph of Reginald Heber's powerful lines of Isaiah 24. 4 stanzas on 2 sides, then signed R. Heber. This is a very attractive volume.

        Punka Indians Encamped

      1839 - BODMER, Karl. Punka Indians Encamped on the Banks of the Missouri. London: Ackermann (Bougeard), 1839. Single sheet, plate impression measures 12-1/2 by 9-1/2 inches; window matted, entire piece measures 23 by 20 inches. $1500.Original hand-colored aquatint Plate XI, third state, one of the 33 “vignettes” from Karl Bodmer’s magnificent picture-atlas, produced for Maximilian Wied-Neuwied’s Travels in the Interior of North America (1839-1843).Maximilian’s monumental work was originally published in German (1839-41); a French translation followed in 1840-43 and an English translation in 1843. A picture-atlas of eighty-one aquatint plates (48 folios and 33 “vignettes”) after paintings by Karl Bodmer was issued in Paris, and accompanied all three of these editions. The picture volume is now regarded as one of the most comprehensive and memorable visual surveys of North America ever produced. The images provide an authentic glimpse into 19th-century America by one of the most eminent European artists. Unlike some other painters, Bodmer tried not to romanticize his subjects, but show them as they really were. Perhaps the most important leg of Maximilian’s travels started from St. Louis and proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. “On 11 May 1833 a small group of Ponca men seen on the riverbank were invited aboard the steamship Yellow Stone… The ship reached their camp the following day and paused just long enough to allow the Ponca passengers to disembark” (Marsha V. Gallagher). The print is vignette number XI, with the three requisite imprint statements and captions in German, French and English. Third state, with the date in the imprint statement and engraved by Lucas Weber. Ruud, 267. See Howes M443a. Wagner-Camp 76. Streeter III:1809. Hand coloring very vivid, only light foxing to margins (not affecting image). A splendid print.

        De la loi du contraste simultané des couleurs et de l'assortiment des objets colorés, considéré d'après cette loi dans ses rapports avec la peinture, les tapisseries des Gobelins [.]

      1839 - deux volumes, soit : 1 volume Paris, Pitois-Levrault, 1839, , deux volumes, soit : 1 volume de texte in-8 demi-chagrin rouge à l'imitation, de XV et 735 pages et deux tableaux dépliants ; et un atlas in-4 demi-chagrin rouge de l'époque, 40 et 9 planches dépliantes, , PREMIERE EDITION du plus grand texte du XIXe siècle sur la théorie des couleurs. Chevreul, chimiste et directeur de la manufacture des Gobelins, mécontent du rendu visuel des couleurs des tapisseries fabriquées à Paris, chercha une solution, par le biais de la chimie, en étudiant la fixation des pigments ; s'apercevant que le problème résidait en fait dans une appréciation visuelle des couleurs, il proposa une nouvelle étude, novatrice, basée sur l'optique. Il aboutit ainsi à la formulation de la "loi du contraste simultané des couleurs". Celle-ci se résume facilement en un précepte unique : "Mettre une couleur sur une toile, ce n'est pas seulement teindre de cette couleur tout ce qu'a touché le pinceau, c'est encore colorer de la complémentaire l'espace environnant." Autrement dit, un tout n'est compréhensible que par l'adhésion et la fusion de ses parties. Cette première idée, fondatrice, est accompagnée de deux autres, moins connues, qui en découlent : le "contraste successif" et le "contraste mixte" qui soulignent le rôle de mémorisation sensorielle joué par le cerveau et la rétine. Cette théorie des couleurs et de leur perception eut une influence considérable puisqu'elle plaça au centre du complexe problème du coloris en peinture, et dans le domaine de la tapisserie, l'importance de l'implication psychique de celui qui observe. Chevreul ouvrait en cela des voies nouvelles pour les esthétiques et les théories de l'art les plus avant-gardistes de la fin du XIXe et du début du XXe siècle (Delacroix connaissait les travaux de Chevreul ; Seurat s'en inspira directement ; Signac, théoricien du néo-impressionnisme, s'en réclame explicitement ; et les Simultanéistes, Robert et Sonia Delaunay surtout, vers les années 1914, essaient d'appliquer directement la théorie de Chevreul). Sur le faux-titre du volume de texte, cachet gras d'Edward Duveen, frère du célèbre collectionneur d'art Joseph Duveen. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Funeral Scaffold of a Sioux Chief

      1839 - BODMER, Karl. Todtengeruste Eines Sioux-Chefs. Echafaudage Funeraire d’un Chef Sioux (Funeral Scaffold of a Sioux Chief, Near Fort Pierre). FROM: PRINCE MAXIMILLIAN zu WIED-NEUWIED. Travels in the Interior Parts of North America. Paris: Arthus Bertrand (Imprimé de Bougeard), [1839]. Original hand-colored engraving, plate impression measures approximately 16 by 14 inches, handsomely matted and framed, entire piece measures 28 by 30 inches. $6000.Fine hand-colored folio plate (number 11), first state, from the magnificent Atlas volume for Maximilian Wied-Neuwied's Travels in the Interior of North America.Travels in the Interior of North America was originally published in German during 1839-41. A French translation followed in 1840-43 and an English translation in 1843. The Atlas included 33 vignettes in addition to the 48 beautiful folio plates. “Bodmer’s watercolors are perhaps the most accurate works of art ever made of American Indians during the nineteenth century. His attention in detail to beadwork, personal symbols, clothing, accoutrements, and facial expression make these portraits precious documents of a lost world” (Robert Moore). “With the name of the artistâ€"“C. Bodmer Direct”â€" stamped in blind on each of the forty-eight large plates, this work is the most beautiful, faithful and vivid ever produced depicting western plains and Indians” (Howes M443a). This superb hand-colored scene of a Sioux funeral platform is folio number 11 (with the requisite three separate imprint statements, captions in German, French, and English, and the embossed stamp). First state, without a date in the imprint statement. Ruud, 116. See Howes M443a. Wagner-Camp 76. Streeter III:1809. Almost imperceptible foxing to margins (not affecting the quality of the image). A very desirable and rare Bodmer, in near-fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM AUDUBON TO HIS ESTEEMED ENGRAVER, ROBERT HAVELL, REGARDING TRAVEL TOGETHER AND NATURAL HISTORY SPECIMENS]

      Liverpool, 1839. Quarto. Small tears at folds, minor fraying and chipping to edges, affecting a few words of text including the last three letters of Audubon's signature. Good. In a half morocco and cloth folding case, gilt, with gilt leather label on front cover. A significant letter from distinguished American naturalist, John James Audubon to his favorite engraver, Robert Havell. Having spent over two years from 1837 to 1839 in England, finalizing the publication of the great BIRDS OF AMERICA and its companion text, the ORNITHOLOGICAL BIOGRAPHY, Audubon and his family prepare for the final journey home. Audubon writes to Havell, the principal engraver for the famous elephant folio BIRDS, as the two men had become fast friends during the book's creation. Havell decided to accompany Audubon to America, and days before their scheduled departure, Audubon writes to Havell: "...We will sail on Monday next...from this port for New York on board the packet ship the George Washington.... You and Mrs. Havell & daughter will sail from London on the 1st of August; but it is difficult to say which of us will reach America first. Should you do so, please to inform our sons and daughters of the name of the vessel...." Audubon then asks Havell to have casks of natural history samples sent to Sheffield: "I wish you to have the goodness to forward to Mr. John Heppenstall of Sheffield, all the barrels or kegs which you had placed in a warehouse.... Please to have shipped to Hull by steamer to be forwarded to Sheffield by canal boats, and have the said casks addressed John Heppenstall Esq., Sheffield, Natural History objects [the latter three words underlined by Audubon]. I wish you and yours could have been in the same ship with us...." Upon their arrival in America, Havell and his family first stayed with the Audubons in Brooklyn, then moved to Ossining, New York, and subsequently to Tarrytown, where they spent the remaining years of his life painting Hudson River views and landscapes, as well as engraving and publishing prints of the Hudson and of various American cities. Correspondence between these two important icons of 19th- century American natural history publication is exceedingly rare in the market.

Volume 2 describes the continuation and completion of the survey with the Beagle alone ending in 1836. Volume 3 comprises Darwin's own journal of his voyage in the Beagle which is the first issue of his first published book. "The five years of the voyage were the most important event in Darwin's intellectual life and in the history of biological sciences. Darwin sailed with no formal scientific training. He returned a hard-headed man of science, knowing the importance of evidence, allmost convinces that species had not always been as they were since the creation but had undergone change. He developed doubts about the value of the Scriptures as a trustworthy guide to the history of the earth and of man, with the result that he gradually became an agnostic. The experience of his five years in the Beagle, how he dealt with them, and what they led to, built up a process of epoch making importance in the history of thought." DSB, III, p. 566.
