        Punka Indians camped on the banks of the Missouri [Vig. 11]

      Paris, Coblenz and London: [1839-42]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Salathé after Bodmer, issue with no date after English imprint. 9 1/4 x 12 1/2 inches. 12 3/8 x 18 1/8 inches. 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. Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        Modes de Paris (Two Volumes) Petit Courrier des Dames; Bon Ton

      S. & J. Fuller 1839-1847, London - 4to. The first volume is 26 by 16.5 cm, the second volume, 28 by 19.5 cm. 214 and 153 hand-colored plates, respectively, for a total of 367 such plates. Notwithstanding the difference in size, the two volumes are bound in a matching half vellum and marbled boards, and they read as a set. The difference in size is NOT because the plates were cut differently, but rather, a reflection of a change in the size of the original printing. The plates were staples of fashion magazines such as Bon Ton, but it is also believed that often such plates were available individually and those that went into these two volumes were a compilation of plates sold singly, as there would be markings in the margins of some if they had been pulled from bound volumes. The plates are mostly of women's fashion, with a smattering of men's, and the collection here facilitates greatly our observance of the then slow but steady evolution of fashion over an eight year period. Number of plate neatly inked in corner of each plate. Scattered light foxing. Soiling to the vellum and wear to the boards. [Attributes: First Edition]

Graesse I: 436 (1841). "The most exhaustive work on this episode [the Pastry War] with illustrations, mainly by Blanchard, who, assisting also as interpreter, had additional opportunity for gaining information. He accompanied Baudin's representative to Mexico and other places, and used his pen freely in observations on the scenery, the people, and their institutions, all of which served to add variety and interest to the narrative, the attractive style of which owes much to the revision of Dauzats, " (Bancroft, Hist. Mexico, p. 204). Raines, discussing Maissin's report, concludes that "Admiral Baudin's favorable report of Texas doubtless hastened the recognition of the Republic by France, " (Bibliography of Texas. p. 145). Printing on India paper was not common; Sabin also notes that the book was printed for 45 fr. with vignettes and 25 fr without. A very good or better copy, boards and spine rubbed, scattered foxing mainly marginal and to verso of plates.

        Washinga Sahba's Grave on Blackbird's Hills [Vig. 12]

      Paris, Coblenz and London: [1839-1842]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Ch. Vogel after Bodmer, blindstamp. Repaired tears to margins, some surface soiling to margins. 9 x 12 1/2 inches. 11 1/8 x 14 3/8 inches. Bodmer, Prince Maximilian and David Dreidoppel were heading up the Missouri River aboard the steamer Yellow Stone.On 5 May they had left Cabanné's post for the abandoned military post of Fort Atkinson in the vicinity of present day Fort Calhoun, Nebraska On the morning of 7 May 1833 they passed the spot pictured here by Bodmer: the Blackbird Hills, named after a chief of the Omahas who had insisted on being buried in a mound seated upon a mule. As the boat passed by three Indians look on warily, two keep guard on the bank whilst a third waters his horse. 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.

        The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickelby

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1839 Illustrated by Hablot Knight Browne ("Phiz"). First edition, first issue. Finely bound in crushed dark green Morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, with five raised bands to the spine, boards ruled in gilt, spine lettering and decorative band tooling in gilt, elaborate spine panel decorations in gilt, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, additional watermarked laid paper endpapers; eight pages of publisher's ads bound into the rear of the text, fourteen pages of the original publisher's blue paper wrappers from the serial publication comprised of nine front covers and four rear covers bound into the rear of the text, loosely inserted binder's advertisement. A fine copy, with some minor rubbing to the extremities, extremely faint minor toning to the page edges, otherwise bright and fresh pages. Overall, a beautifully bound, excellent copy. Smith I, 5. Like its predecessor Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickelby is a novel set in Victorian England that features a male youth as the protagonist and puts a human face on the social depravation of the British underclass. In the novel, Nicholas Nickelby, after losing his father, is sent to a boy's school where he witnesses and attempts to prevent the mistreatment of the orphan students by their tyrannical adult wardens. Before its book form publication on October 23, 1839, Nicholas Nickelby was issued in twenty parts, published serially in nineteen monthly installments from April 1839 - October 1839. This volume includes the front and rear paper wrappers for the following issues: No. IV (July 1838), No. VII (October 1838), No. XV (June 1839), No. XVI (July 1839), and No. XVII (August 1839). Only the front wrappers for the following issues are additionally bound into the rear of the text: No. V (August 1838), No. IX (December 1838), no. XII (March 1839), and No. XVIII (September 1839). Each front wrapper contains an illustration by H.K. Browne, who also created the illustrated plates that are included in this volume. Each serial installment included the half-title "Containing a Faithful Account of the Fortunes, Misfortunes, Uprisings, Downfallings, and the Complete Career of the Nickelby Family" and claimed to be edited by "Boz." While both author and illustrator signed the serialized Nicholas Nickelby with pseudonyms, Dickens added his real name to the book form, while Browne continued to be credited as "Phiz.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine. Illus. by Browne, Hablot Knight.

      F.G. Moon, London - Beautiful view of the alleged site of Jesus' first public miracle, turning water into wine, from David Roberts' "Views in the Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia".

        The Gift [First Appearance of William Wilson, 1839]

      Philadelphia: Carey & Hart, 1839 Philadelphia: Cary & Hart, 1839. First appearance of Poe's short story, "William Wilson", Pp. 229-253 in The Gift: A Christmas and New Year's Present for 1840. Whole volume offered. viii, [17]-328 pp. With 8 (of 9) steel-engraved plates. 7¼x4¾, original morocco elaborately tooled in gilt, all edges gilt. First appearance of this sort story later collected in Tales of the Grotesque (1840). BAL 16130. Light scuffing to spine ends and corners; foxing to plates and occasionally to text, lacking the frontispiece, a signature sprung, else very good. Bright gilt and leather. Poe's semi-autobiographical tale of a young man who encounters a mysterious identical twin - who even bears the narrator's name, William Wilson - while at boarding school. The bond that grows between the two, the narrator's eventual hatred of his twin, and the blurring of distinction between the pair was an early venture by Poe into psychology and philosophy, and manifested his growing sophistication as a writer. That Wilson shares Poe's day of birth - January 19th - and even his birth year (1809) in some later renderings (this first appearance has Wilson's birth year as 1811), that Wilson had a schoolmaster (as did Poe) named Bransby, and that much of Wilson's personal history reflects, at least qualitatively, much of Poe's, stands as evidence of intentional autobiographical treatment. This, in turn, led to much speculation that the story bears clues to the mental meandering of Poe's own mind - as, indeed, it might. Poe deemed William Wilson to be one of his "best tales", with seven others. (Quinn 430). L37n

        Pteroglossus Aracari. Cayene Aracari.

      London 1839 - A Monograph of the Ramphastidae (Family of Toucans) Among those who combined science and art to produce color plate books on natural history, John Gould was not only the most successful, but the most prolific. Without the advantages of wealth or formal education, he had achieved enough recognition in his chosen field to be taxidermist for King George IV at the age of 21. At 22 he was competitively chosen the first 'Curator Preserver' for the newly-established museum of the Zoological Society of London. His first book, 'A Century of Birds of the Himalaya Mountains', was published four years later. While working on his massive 'Birds of Europe', Gould made several trips to European museums to gather material for two specialized books, one on Toucans and another on Trogons. Those completed, he left for Australia where he not only depicted hundreds of known species but discovered 300 new species. His obituary, printed in 'Nature', said '.he has left behind him a series of works the like of which will probably never be seen again.' Gould continued to expand and correct his work on the Toucans. A revised edition was published in 1852-54, with a Supplement in 1885 for the original subscribers. The 'Toucans' is unique among Gould's books in one respect. It was the only major work translated into a foreign language; a German edition was published in 1841. Publication City: London Medium: Lithographs with original hand-coloring. Dimensions: Measuring 21 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches Date: 1834-1835

Presented by Lady Currie' and 'Mrs Moltino, Jany. 1910.William Collins, 1788-1847, father of the novelist William Wilkie Collins, was a highly popular landscape and genre painter. He was elected a Royal Academician in 1820. In the Autumn of 1836 Collins left Britain for Italy and remained there, immersing himself in study, until 1838. On his return to Britain he began a series of paintings depicting Italian life and it is likely that this striking image was created during this period.

        A Diary In America, with Remarks On Its Institutions (6 volumes)

      First Edition All six volumes of this six volume matched set are frst editions of 1st and 2nd series and all are in very good+ or better condition in 3/4 leather (calf) and marbled paper covered boards with five raised bands on the spines with red and black leather title labels and gilt tooling in the compartments. The end sheets for each volume match the marbled paper on the covers of the books. All edges of the text blocks are gilt. Each volume is a small octavo measuring 7 3/4" by 5" with an early prior owner's book plate attached to the front paste down. The front hinge and joint to volume I of the first series (Part I) is weak with the front hinge reinforced with archival tape and the rear joint is showing wear, but remains tight. The spine is very slightly faded. Vol. II only shows wear to the leather at the head and heel of the spine and lower edges of the boards with very light wear to the joints. Vol. III shows only light rubbing to the front joint. Vol. I of the Second Series (Part II) shows only slight wear and rubbing to the front hinge and to the lower edges of the boards. Vol. II and III both show shallow wear to the leather at the head and heel of the spines and to the lower edges of the boards and light wear to the front joints. Pasted to the second free end page is a clipped signature of Frederick Marryat. With an errata page for Vol. I appearing at the rear of Vol. III. Vol. II of the Second Series has the fold-out map of "Aboriginal America" upon which are noted the various Native American tribes within their respective geographical areas. This map is followed by a second fold-out map of central Florida showing the seat of hostilities with Seminole Indians and the United States. By the time of his visit and tour of America and Canada in 1837 through 1838, Captain Marryat had already attained the status of an accomplished novelist in Great Britain. He published his notes, diary and comments on his travels shortly after returning to England. His characterizations of Americans their institutions and his remarks were hardly complimentary. Both Series I and Series II are considered "scarce" by Howes. (Howes, M-300 & M-301; Clark, Travels in the Old South, III:204)Our code number = TB26697

        Encampment of the Travellers on the Missouri [Vig. 23]

      Paris, Coblenz and London: [1839-1842]. Hand-coloured engraving by Outhwaite after Bodmer, blindstamp. 10 1/2 x 14 inches. 12 3/16 x 17 3/4 inches. During the traveller's journey back down the Missouri River from Fort Union to Fort Clark (30 October to 8 November 1833) they were forced to occasionally bivouac on the bank side. Here as night falls the majority of the party is gathered round the fire, both for warmth and in anticipation of a hot meal: pipes are smoked and the day's events discussed. One of the party makes some final adjustments to the coverings for the cargo, whilst a single man stands watch out over the river. 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. Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1.
