        Biographical Sketches and Interesting Anecdotes of Persons of Color to which is added a Selection of Pieces of Poetry

      Trustees of the residuary estate of Lindley Murray [1839], New York - 408p, third edition of this work that was first published in 1826, period leather-binding with old repairs and edge wear, spine worn with gilt bands but title worn away, period owner's name inked on free front fly leaf, darkened endpapers with foxing and slight foxing throughout. Mott's book was stunning for the period in its attempt to humanize people of color through short biographies, stories demonstrating the humanity of blacks, and evidence of their creativity through poetry. Her sketches range internationally in scope (Sierra Leone, the Caribbean, Liberia, the US), including the well-known (Toussaint L'Ouverture, Phyllis Wheatley), the obscure (Poor Sarah. Billy and Jenny), and Native Americans (Good Old Ruth the Pequot, Margaret Ann Crutchfield). This edition was published during a period of intense violence against abolitionists, particularly women. Abigail Field Mott (1766-1851) lived in Westchester County, NY before moving to Burlington, NJ. She was an observant Quaker and aunt by marriage to abolitionist and feminist Lucretia Coffin Mott. In this book, she sought "to encourage virtue and morality in the different classes of society; and by bringing into view the effects which a system of slavery has on the human mind, and the dreadful consequences of that arbitrary power invested in the slaveholder over his fellow-being, to show how it hardens the heart and petrifies the feelings."

      Fisher, Son & Co. [1839], London and Paris - Fisher's illustrated Constantinople is a prime example of illustrated travel books of this era. This , the first series, has 48 tissue guarded steel engraved plates, including the frontispiece, vignette title and map of Constantinople - collated and complete. NOTE - the contents only calls up 47 plates, but this volume seems to have an additional one [Ancient archway and cavern of the Balkan mountains] that is not referenced. Maroon leather binding with a very fancy blind embossed pattern to both boards and the backstrip. This book has been rebound in leather with the original leather overlaid. The only loss to the original leather is at the top / tail of the backstrip and along the backstrip edges. Corners / edges worn. Replacement endpapers. Some brown spotting throughout, more prominant towards beginning and end of book. aeg. 28x23 cm. Allom was an architect and topographical illustrator and founder member of RIBA. Known for his meticulous work this, together with his architecural origins, are quite apparent in this work. [Houfe] The engravings herein are truly atmospheric and accomplished, taking in the 'humdrum' of every day life, such as in the village of Babec, to the majesty of some of the building interiors such as the Mosque in Santa Sophia to the truly impressive views such as Constantinople seen from the Golden Horn. It is truly fascinating. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        No. 58 Pl. 287 Wild Turkey Male

      0 - Hand-colored lithograph by J.T. Bowen after John James Audubon. From the First Octavo edition of the Birds of America, From Drawings Made in the United States and Their Territories. New York and Philadelphia: J. J. Audubon and J. B. Chevalier, 1839-44. Paper dimensions: 10 x 6 ½ inches. A tireless entrepreneur, John James Audubon devoted himself to an unprecedented project, becoming the first to attempt the seemingly insurmountable task of documenting all the bird life of North America. This venture grew out of a genuine and passionate interest in his subjects, and Audubon determined not only to complete a project that no one else had undertaken, but to approach it in an entirely innovative manner. His style and his persona were much like the notion of America itself: ambitious, animated and larger than life. The artist's tireless efforts and remarkable talent culminated in the publication in London of his 435-plate Birds of America (1827-1838), undoubtedly the greatest work on birds ever produced. The celebration of this quintessentially American work, and the enterprising, talented artist who created it, has grown steadily since the time of its publication. Even before the double elephant folio edition had been completed, Audubon was planning the octavo edition in order to make his magnificent Birds of America available to a wider spectrum of people. In the introduction to the first part of his reduced format edition, Audubon wrote that he had "been frequently asked, for several years past, by numerous friends of science, both in America and Europe, to present to them and to the public a work on the Ornithology of our country, similar to my large work, but of such dimensions, and at such price, as would enable every student or lover of nature to place it in his Library." All of the birds from Audubon's original folio aquatints were reduced by camera lucida for lithography by the artist's son John Woodhouse, and new species were added. The octavo edition was expanded to 500 plates, and included the text of Audubon's "Ornithological Biography." Because it incorporates Audubon's text and several new plates, this edition is also considered the first complete edition of Audubon's Birds of America, as well as the first American edition. It was beautifully printed and colored by John Bowen of Philadelphia (with the exception of Pl.136 - Pl.150 adeptly executed by Endicott in New York), one of the finest American lithographers of his day, and issued in 100 serial parts over a five-year span. Audubon's "little work," as he called it, was a great success, attracting nearly 1,200 subscribers and becoming the format through which Audubon's ornithology was most widely disseminated in the nineteenth century. This was prepared by Emily Nhaissi for Arader Galleries. I guarantee its accuracy. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition]

        Poems, now first collected

      London: Edward Moxon, , 1839 . Octavo (161 × 100 mm). Brown morocco-textured skiver presentation binding, title gilt to spine which is gilt in compartments, ornate gilt panelling surrounding large gilt urn device to both boards, all edges gilt, neatly rebacked with the greater part of the original spine laid down. A little rubbed at the extremities, light toning, but overall very good. First edition. Presentation inscription to the front free endpaper; "To Mrs. [Fanny] Kemble with Leigh's kind regards. 15th January 1872." Inscribed to the great actress by her son-in-law. Bookplate of Butler Place, the suburban Philadelphia home of Kemble and her husband Pierce Butler, which passed to her as part of the settlement of their 1863 divorce. Fanny Kemble, the British-born actress, settled in America following a "triumphal tour". Despite her abolitionist sentiments, she married the plantation-owning Butler, and after a brief visit to his estates in Georgia wrote Journal of a Residence on a Georgia Plantation, considered to be the best portrayal of plantation life by a writer of abolitionist sentiment. Lord Leigh, poet and literary patron, friend and admirer of Lord Byron, was the father of Canon James Wentworth Leigh who married Fanny and Pierce's younger daughter Frances Butler Leigh in June 1871. Lord Leigh, like Kemble, strongly opposed slavery. His poetry was not widely known but was "much prized by the scholarly few", his "early verse is mildly libertine, the later mildly pious. The principal work is a sequence of verse epistles addressed 'to a friend in town' arguing liberal positions on the aesthetic and economic questions of the day. Byron was ever the point of departure… Chandos Leigh thought and lived as a more civilized Byron might have done." (ODNB) In his preface Leigh remarks, "Surely every real friend of freedom… fervently hopes for the abolition of slavery in America." Further, in the poem "America," he writes "thus where each citizen is deem'd the heir/Of liberty plague-spots of slavery come:/Nature has never written in her tome/That colour gives monopoly to 'whites'/Of freedom…" In his annotations to the poem he quotes extensively from Chevalier and Tocqueville whose recent works inform this poem. His son began holding services for freed slaves on Pierce Butler's estate in 1873, and through the efforts of both he and his wife a church was built "for the Colored People of McIntosh County," St. Cyprian's at Darien, Georgia, which was consecrated in 1876, and still stands today, Clearly this book, in its delicate presentation binding, was intended by Leigh as an affectionate tribute to his son's new mother-in-law, a fellow author whose liberal sentiments he much admired. An extremely attractive association.

        S. Porch de Chartres Cathedral

      [London] 1839 - A very fine image from Boys' 'Picturesque Architecture in Paris, Ghent, Antwerp, Rouen &c': ''a work of exceeding beauty' (Abbey) and one of the most important in the history of English colour-printing. This print represents part of what was the first serious challenge to the supremacy in England of the hand-coloured aquatint. The plates in Boys' Picturesque Architecture in Paris, Ghent, Antwerp, Rouen &c 'are produced entirely by means of lithography: they are printed with oil-colours, and come from the press precisely as they now appear.' As detailed in the Descriptive Notice, it was strictly stipulated by the publisher that no colour be added, and goes on to state that previous attempts at chromolithography had suffered from an unnatural flatness 'whereas in these views, the various effects of light and shade, of local colour and general tone, result from graduated tone. The atmospheric appearance of the skies, giving day-light appearance to the out-door scenes, is the best evidence of the purity and relevance of the tints of colour; which.combine solidity with transparency'. Boys fully explored the range of possibilities that the new technique offered: one subject is presented as if it were 'a crayon sketch heightened with colour', others 'a sepia drawing, with touches of colour.a slight sketch in water-colours.a finished water-colour.an oil painting', etc. Abbey waxes lyrical about the work: "A very beautiful [work].Apart from the brilliance, sensitivity, and.mastery of the drawing on stone there is the great.technical and artistic achievement of Hullmandel in making possible the transmission of such drawings, and in developing the cool, transparent, graduated tints, subtle in colouring.the [work] appears to have made a great impression at the time, King Louis Philippe.is said to have presented the publishers with a diamond ring; and a review in a contemporary magazine, Art Union, said: Our recommendation of it to all who love and can appreciate art cannot be given in terms too strong; it is worthy of the highest possible praise. The Work is of exceeding beauty." (Abbey Travel I , 33). Cf. Abbey Travel I, 33; cf. E. Beresford Chancellor, Picturesque Architecture in Paris.by Thomas Shotter Boys , London: Architectural Press, 1928; cf. Friedman 134; Tooley 105. Lithograph by Shotter Boys.

        Autograph letter signed to John Ramsay M'Culloch, (Daniel, 1782-1852, American Lawyer and Statesman)

      1839 - (1789-1864, the political economist), thanking him "for the copy of your Essay, which I shall read on the passage home. If I should notice any mistakes or errors, into which you may have been led, in respect to the system of Banking in the U States, I may trouble you with a letter . No one believes more sincerely than I do, in the truth & importance of all the general principles, which I understand you to maintain. I am, with great regard", 2 sides 8vo., Brunswick Hotel, [London], 19th November with 1 inch stub of blank conjugate leaf, into which extends a note in an old neat hand below the signature "d. October 24th 1852" When Webster was first in Congress, in 1812, he attacked the various tariff bills of the period, but by 1828 had become an aggressive champion of protection. From 1819 he appeared for the Bank of the United States in important constitutional cases. In a famous debate of 1830 he declared that the Union, in origin, preceded the States, with its own range of powers, of which the Supreme Court was the only proper arbiter. Nullification by individual states could result only in violence and civil war. In these terms he continued to support the Bank in the Senate, both on principle and as a client. He was re-elected Senator in 1839 from Massachusetts, and was Secretary of State 1840-1843 and 1850-1852, the post in which he achieved the greatest satisfaction for his talents. In 1842 he successfully concluded the Webster-Ashburton treaty on the boundary of Maine with Canada. Webster's orations of 1820, commemorating the Pilgrim Fathers, and of 1825, at the laying of the corner-stone of the Bunker Hill monument, are still famous. When 'The Scotsman' was founded in 1817, M'Culloch contributed to an early number, with the result that he was made its editor 1818-1820. He also contributed for many years to the Edinburgh Review. He published the 'Principles of Political Economy', 1825, of which he was Professor at London University, 1828-1832. From 1838 he was comptroller of the Stationery Office.

        Autograph letter signed to Pierre Hippolyte Boutigny, accompanied by watercolor sketch of an alga

      Falaise 1839 - Brébisson, Louis Alphonse de (1798-1872). A.L.s. in French to Pierre Hippolyte Boutigny (1798-1884), accompanied by watercolor drawing of Hygrocrocis arsenici. Falaise, 29 October 1839. 3pp. plus address. 196 x 161 mm.; drawing measures 77 x 121 mm. Mounted.Brébisson was one of the first botanists to discover microscopic algae, on which he published several works. He was the author of Flore de la Normandie (1836 and later editions), and contributed to the monumental Flore générale de France (1828-29). Brébisson also made important contributions to the development of photography: he pioneered the art of photography in Normandy, was one of the first in France to use collodion negatives, and in 1849 built a camera adapted for use with a microscope, which he employed in his scientific researches. "His work on microscopic seaweeds and diatoms stimulated further research, and was still being cited at the end of the century" (Frizot, A New History of Photography, p. 276).Brébisson's letter, written to a professor of chemistry in Evreux, reads as follows:Monsieur,Sans une absence de quelques jours que je viens de faire, je n'aurais pas été aussi longtemps à vous accuser réception de votre lettre et de l'algue intéressante qu'elle renfermait, production qui a pour moi le plus grand intérêt comme ses congénères et dont je vous remercie beaucoup.Je veux aussi vous dire combien l'annonce de jouir quelquefois de votre instructive correspondance a de prix pour moi et veuillez croire combien je mettrai toujours d'empressement à mériter vos communications.Je ne vous ai point effacé sur la lutte de nos confrères par que la délivrance de nos mémoires n'est point une condition imposée, mais facultative. Vous devriez bien, au contraire, nous faire cadeau de quelques unes de vos fréquentes et précieuses observations et pour vous montrer que nous sommes sans rancune, je vous promets insertion dans nos bulletins et vous assure d'avance de notre reconnaissance.Votre hygrocrocis est, comme tous les autres, formé de filamens qui, dans chaque espèce, présentent des formes toujours un peu différentes selon les milieux dans lesquels ils se sont développés. Mais, par conséquent, il sera très difficile de limiter les espèces que l'on peut pour ainsi dire, faire à volonté. Je viens d'en trouver un très beau dans l'eau de laitue. Quant aux vôtre, de substances mélangés, son nom ne peut être réduit à l'expression d'un simple origine, permettez-moi donc de lui donner le nom de son inventeur et le placer dans mon herbier sous le nom d'Hygrocrocis Boutignyana.Je ne connais pas M. Gilgencrantz, mais desqu'il est votre ami et Algologue, je serais charmé d'avoir des rapports avec lui et s'il désirait de mes Algues dont un grand nombre sont nouvelles, je les lui communiquerais avec plaisir.Agréez, Monsieur, l'assurance de la parfaite considération avec laquelle j'ai l'honneur d'être votre tout dévoué serviteur,De BrébissonIn the letter Brébisson thanks Boutigny for sending him a species of algae (hygrocrocis), and expresses pleasure in their mutual correspondence. He describes Boutigny's specimen as being, "like all others, formed of filaments which, in each species, present themselves a little differently depending on the environments in which they developed." He proposes to put the specimen into his own herbarium under the name of Hygrocrocis boutignyana, after its discoverer. The letter is accompanied by a watercolor sketch of an alga, Hygrocrocis arsenici.

"One of the most gifted and versatile prodigies, Mendelssohn stood at the forefront of German music during the 1830s and 40s, as conductor, pianist, organist and, above all, composer. His musical style, fully developed before he was 20, drew upon a variety of influences, including the complex chromatic counterpoint of Bach, the formal clarity and gracefulness of Mozart and the dramatic power of Beethoven and Weber." "The three quartets op.44, written during the idyllic period of Mendelssohn's honeymoon and first year of marriage, show signs of a Classical tendency." R. Larry Todd in Grove online Folio.

        Voyage a Surinam. Description des possessions néerlandaises dans la Guyane.

      - Bruxelles, De Wasme et Laurent, 1839.Folio. Contemporary half green morocco, spine gilt (chafed). With woodengraved illustration on title-page and 100 views and illustrations on 50 full-page lithographed plates, including the fine frontispiece, by Madou and Lauters after the author; several on chine applique. 76 pp.* First edition; with armorial bookplate of Isaac Meulman. - Benoit was born in 1782 in Antwerp and died in Brussels in 1854. During his stay in Surinam he had an eye for daily life in Surinam, he belonged to the opponents of the abolition of slavery: the Surinam slave-owners, from humanitarian motives and from natural self-interest, by no means treat their slaves as badly as is asserted by those who are in favour of abolition. He cannot avoid picturing the harsh and cruel daily existence of the slaves and explaining why they run away, revolt against their masters and are filled with hatred towards the whites. When describing their dance-festivals, he says that the need to find an outlet for their misery accounts for the frenzy with which they throw themselves into it (Introduction by S.W. de Groot to the facsimile edition). He made a large number of charming and meticulous drawings. These very attractive set of views of Surinam include fine scenes of native life, showing costumes, dwellings, ceremonies, festivals, recreations, interiors, utensils, etc. of the negro- and Indian population. Beautiful lithographed plates-book on the people and life in Surinam. - Except some marginal foxing as usual, a fine large-paper copy.Sabin 4737; Muller, America, p.169; Suriname-Cat.

        Suggestions Relative to the Philosophy of Geology

      New Haven: Printed by B.L. Hamlen. 1839. First. First edition. Stitched. 119pp. Wrappers lacking. Modest wear to the first leaf, very good. Inscribed by the author: "George Combe Esq. with affec. regards of the author. March 10, 1840." The inscription is a bit irregularly faded but readable. Combe was a Scot, and a leading writer on education and especially phrenology. His writings drew much attention to the subject on the continent and in the U.S., where Silliman was reportedly engaged by the subject. Combe visited the U.S. between 1838 and 1840, presumably when this pamphlet was presented. A nice association. .
