        Washington Irving, one America's first great writers, makes reference to his contemporary, James Fenimore Cooper, and muses on visiting, " the spot where Columbus first landed."

      Tarrytown, December 20, 1840. 8" x 10". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""Washington Irving,"" 2 pages, 8"" x 10"", Tarrytown, December 20, 1840, with the integral transmittal leaf addressed in his hand to historian and journalist William Leete Stone, Sr. (1792-1844) in New York. Minor partial separations to expected folds, light toning, mounting remnants along margin of transmittal leaf, small loss from seal tear, else very good.Irving writes, in full: ""I return you the letter of Mr Bacon and beg when next you write to him you will express to him how much I feel obliged by the kind interest he manifests in my canvas[?] and by his suggestion as to a visit to the spot where Columbus first landed. Such a visit would indeed be most interesting to me did circumstances permit me to make it; but he is mistaken in the idea that I have any work in hand connected with the landing of Columbus. The report that got into the papers, must have originated in the circumstance of Mr [James Fenimore] Cooper being occupied in a work founded on that subject, and in my name being, by a [?], substituted for his. I have seen Mr. Wiley and will do the needful with respect to the biography of Campbell as soon as I can command a moment[']s leisure. I am glad to find you are extending your interesting and romantic researches into the valley of the Susquehanna.""Leet's ""romantic researches into the valley of the Susquehanna"" (as Irving termed them) resulted in the 1841 volume, Poetry and History of Wyoming. This work built upon his previous years work documenting the history of the American Revolution on the Pennsylvania and New York frontiers including Border Wars of the American Revolution (1837), Life of Joseph Brant (1838), and Life of Red Jacket (1840).In 1840 James Fenimore Cooper published Mercedes of Castile: or, the Voyage to Cathay, a historical novel set in the 1490s using Columbus' voyages of discovery as a backdrop.

Adrian Ludwig Richter (1803 Dresden - 1884 Dresden). Bedeutender Maler, Zeichner und Grafiker der deutschen Romantik und des Biedermeier. Sohn des Zeichners und Kupferstechers Carl August Richter. Nach der Schulzeit begann er 1815 als Lehrling seines Vaters, studierte daneben an der Kunstakademie in Dresden. 1820/21 begleitete er den russischen Fürst Narischkin als Zeichner auf einer Reise nach Paris. 1823-26 reiste er nach Italien, wo er unter anderen mit Joseph Anton Koch und Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld zusammentraf. Dies prägte seine idealistisch-harmonische Landschaftsauffassung. 1828-35 lehrte er an der Zeichenschule der Porzellanmanufaktur in Meißen, wo Gottfried Pulian zu seinen Schülern zählte. 1826 wurde er als Lehrer für Lasndschaftsmalerei an die Dresdner Kunstakademie berufen. Für die Reihe ?Das malerische und romantische Deutschland? des Leipziger Verlegers Georg Wigand schuf er die Ansichten für die Bände zu Harz, Franken und Riesengebirge. In den späten 1830er Jahren begann er mit Holzschnitt-Illustrationen für Bücher, die ihn unter einem größeren Laienpublikum in Deutschland bekannt machten. Schließlich wurde er zum Professor für Landschaftsmalerei in Dresden ernannt. 1873 musste er aufgrund eines Augenleidens mit dem Malen aufhören und schied 1876 aus der Kunstakademie in Dresden aus.

        [MASTER JAMES CROW]

      [London, 1840. Minor edge wear. Moderate marginal foxing. Very good. Mounted on original stiff card, matted, 23 x 17 1/2 inches. Archival matting, and protected with a mylar sheet. An engaging, unattributed, handcolored lithograph showing a young black boy sitting on a small barrel warming his hands in front of an open coal stove. Tending the fire was a common duty of black domestic servants in British homes, many of whom were boys or young men. This image was part of a series of watercolor scenes done by Hunt in the 1830s, reproduced as HUNT'S COMIC SKETCHES in 1844. It is possible that this is a proof or that the image has simply been trimmed and mounted, removing the title and attribution information. It is a well-realized, handsomely composed picture. The boy is wearing neat but worn clothes, and looks sideways toward the viewer with an engaging smile. The small coal stove radiates flame from its open mouth, while a small hand bellows lies on the floor nearby. A handsome and interesting image.

        TO THE FREEMEN AND INDEPENDENT CITIZENS OF KENNEBUNK [caption title]

      [Kennebunk, Me, 1840. Light foxing and fold lines, 5-inch tear in from left edge along uppermost fold. Good. A lengthy campaign broadside endorsing one Jeremiah Lord for the Maine state legislature. The broadside also addresses the temperance debate which, the author maintains, is being unjustly advanced by the rich in an effort to manipulate the poor. Maine was a hotbed of temperance activity, in part due to the efforts of the zealous Neal Dow, one-time mayor of Portland and organizer of the Maine Temperance Union. A good early exposé of the political (as opposed to moral) motivations of the temperance movement. Rare. Not on OCLC.

        [OVAL PORTRAIT OF MRS. CLARA BARTLETT GREGORY CATLIN]

      [New York, 1840. In very good condition. A lovely portrait of George Catlin's wife, Clara, painted by Scottish-born artist George Linen. Born in Greenlaw, Scotland, George Linen came to America in 1834 and established a painting career first in New York City. He had studied painting at the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh and worked as a portrait painter in England for about ten years before immigrating. He opened a studio in New York City and became a successful painter of small- format portraits, exhibiting regularly between 1837 and 1843 at the Apollo Association and the National Academy of Design. Nine of his portraits were praised in the NEW- YORK SPECTATOR on May 18, 1837: "...exceedingly well colored and carefully finished; and if Mr. Linen is young in the profession, as we suppose he is, they give promise of very high rank for him hereafter." Two years later he received a silver medal from the National Academy of Design for his portrait of Henry Clay. Although he is known primarily as a portrait painter, Linen also painted landscapes after retiring to a farm in New Jersey in 1868. Clara Bartlett Gregory met and married George Catlin in her hometown of Albany, New York in 1828, while he was there to paint Governor De Witt Clinton. Despite her frail health, she accompanied her husband on one of his five journeys west and supported his efforts to capture the likenesses of American Indians. She and their youngest son died while visiting Paris in 1845, a loss that devastated Catlin.

(cgc) Sabin 65378. Story p104. Matthews p98. DionneII-1192. Gagnon I- 2804. Lande 724. T.P.L. 2302. There is no mistaking theelement of pique in the disdainful comments of Canada made by. Preston'sfirst impressions were gained under unfortunate circumstances. He arrivedat Quebec in February 1827, was in Montreal during the riot thatprecipitated the rebellion in that province, and reached Kingston duringthe height of the excitement over the outbreak in Toronto under WilliamLyon Mackenzie. For the rest of his stay he was employed in Toronto. Hisbias appears in his criticism of the stagnant' British colonies ascompared to the vigorous life of the United States, while the emergence ofvigorous qualities among the second generation of Canadians is deprecatedon the ground that young Canadians would be far better employed inagriculture or business than in over-crowding the professions and becomingcompetitors for public employment. It was Preston's view that Torontosociety was pretentious. (Story). His work in the government service inToronto 1837-1839; descriptions of the chief towns, politics, economics,business, public works, land grants, condition of the Indians, settlers,etc.; somewhat impersonal.

        Pl 345 Tell-tale Godwit or Snipe (1 Male 2 Female View of East Florida) The Birds of America, from Drawings Made in the United States and Their Territories

      New York & Philadelphia:: Audubon, J. J. & Chevalier, J.B.,, 1840-44.. The First Royal Octavo. Matted in Ivory Rag Board . Fine condition with bright original hand-coloring. A fine original hand-colored lithograph on paper. Sheet size: 6.5 x 10.25 inches. Drawn from nature by John James Audubon, Fellow of the Royal Society, Fellow of the Linnaean Society. Lithographed, printed and colored by JT Bowen, Philadelphia for the First Royal Octavo Edition of John James Audubon's The Birds of America. Includes the text from Audubon's Ornithological Biography. The Royal Octavo Edition represents John James Audubon's (1785-1851) desire to create an affordable work based on his magnum opus; the Double Elephant Folio Edition of The Birds of America. London: Published by the Author, 1827-38, with engravings produced by William H. Lizars and Robert Havell, Jr. after Audubon's dramatic life-sized portraits of North American birds set amidst their native foliage and surroundings. During the mid-nineteenth century, there were no photomechanical means of reproduction. To create a smaller format work, each and every composition was redrawn by hand; with the aid of the Camera Lucida. For the Royal Octavo Edition, Audubon and his assistants translated the 435 engravings of the Double Elephant Folio Edition into 500 unique drawings. Audubon's compositions of heretofore unrelated birds were now rendered according to species; with each bird portrayed on a new botanical perch or within a renewed landscape. With this new envisioning Audubon created a perfected composition: a charming vignette of the bird, or family of birds, in its natural setting- here sized to scale in the smaller (Royal Octavo) format. For the lithographs of the Royal Octavo Edition of The Birds of America, Audubon enlisted the talents of America's premier lithographers and printers: the JT Bowen and Company in Philadelphia and Endicott in New York. Each composition was drawn on a limestone tablet, then inked and printed. Once dried, the print of the bird and setting was faithfully hand-watercolored in splendid array of lifelike tones. In this format Audubon presented the unique compositions of ten birds newly discovered during his explorations of the American West and not previously portrayed in the Double Elephant Folio Edition. As with the Folio Edition, the Royal Octavo Edition was sold by subscription format -issued twice monthly between 1840 and 44- containing one hundred individual packets of five hand-painted lithographs of birds and their accompanying text. Audubon's Ornithological Biography included his characteristic and scientific descriptions of the birds along with his colloquial nature writings describing the robust beauty of the early American landscape as well as reflections on the travels of this unique Ornithologist, Naturalist and Frontiersman. The popularity and success of the Royal Octavo Edition of Audubon's Birds of America is evidenced by its subsequent production of seven editions- albeit of diminishing quality-with the final edition issued in 1870 by George Lockwood, New York.

        [NOVA SCOTIA ILLUSTRATED IN A SERIES OF VIEWS TAKEN ON THE SPOT AND ON STONE BY WILLIAM EAGAR]

      [Halifax, 1840. Minor soiling and wear. Very good. Each view archivally matted to 15 1/2 x 17 1/2 inches, housed together in a red cloth clamshell case, gilt leather label. A very rare series of views by an artist who occupies an important place in the history of art in Nova Scotia. Eagar was born in Ireland, and by 1824 he was living just outside St. John's, where he owned a twenty-acre estate. In 1828 he sold the estate and moved into St. John's itself, where he advertised his services as a silhouette maker and teacher of landscape painting. He moved to Nova Scotia in 1834, arriving in Halifax in July of that year, where he opened a Drawing Academy. He became enthusiastically involved in the artistic and intellectual life of the city, painting many notable views of the surrounding scenery. The present work followed on from the success of his other published work: three steel-engraved views printed in Edinburgh, titled ILLUSTRATIONS OF SCENERY OF NOVA SCOTIA (1837). Eagar travelled to Boston to arrange for the printing of his new series of lithographic views, NOVA SCOTIA ILLUSTRATED. They were published periodically in four parts: part I in July 1839, part II in August 1839, and the two final parts (which were published posthumously) in May and August 1840. Each part contained three prints, with a lithographed title in part I (not included in the present set). These highly skilled and evocative views are now very scarce. The Abbey set included only nine of the twelve views, and Spendlove noted that the prints were "quite rare" in 1958. They were enthusiastically received. J.S. Thompson, a local newspaperman, wrote: "Mr. Eagar's first number of 'Illustrations of Nova Scotia...' has appeared. Its reception has given much pleasure both for the beauty of the drawings, and the degree of success which has attended Mr. Eagar's persevering efforts to get his work well-lithographed....We hail Mr. Eagar's work, for its own sake, and the artist's; - and also, because it tends to demonstrate how much beauty and interest lie within easy walk of Halifax, - it will help also to increase taste in this delightful department of intellectual effort, and to make the province better known, and more respected." The present set contains the following views: "Halifax, from the Red Mill, Dartmouth"; "Entrance to Halifax Harbour, from Reeve's Hill, Dartmouth"; "View on Bedford Basin"; "Windsor, N.S. from Fort Hill"; "View from Retreat Farm, Windsor, N.S."; and "View from the Horton Mountains.

        Cours de Tactique.

      Paris & Geneva: Librairie d'Ab. Cherbuliez et Ce, [and] même Maison,, 1840. Octavo (203 x 129 mm). Contemporary French green quarter morocco, gilt lettered spine panelled in blind, green marbled paper sides, speckled edges, marbled endpapers. 21 engraved folding diagrammatic plates. Light scattered foxing. First edition, scarce: Copac lists only one location in British and Irish institutional libraries (BL), OCLC adds another two dozen worldwide but the majority of these are in Swiss libraries. Guillaume-Henri Dufour (1787-1875) was a Swiss general who "served in Napoleon's army, defending Corfu in 1813 and taking part in the campaigns in France in 1814. He resigned in 1817 and returned to Switzerland, where he was appointed ingénieur cantonal, supervising the construction of public works that greatly improved Geneva. He also helped to form the military school at Thun in 1819, where he became chief instructor. Appointed chief of staff of the Swiss army in 1831, he commanded a division sent to restore order in Basel in 1833. In the same year, he began his pioneer topographical survey of Switzerland (published 1842?-64). In 1847 Dufour was elected general of the federal army to act against the separatist confederation of Roman Catholic cantons known as the Sonderbund, and he displayed skill and moderation in its suppression. He was elected general for the second time in 1849 to maintain Swiss neutrality in the face of insurgents from Baden; again in 1857, during the conflict with Prussia over Neuchâtel; and finally in 1859, when the French were about to annex Savoy. He presided over the international congress in Geneva in 1864 that drew up the convention for the wounded in time of war and resulted in the creation of the Red Cross" (Encyclopaedia Britannica online). Interestingly his book appeared in an English language edition during the American Civil War, in a translation by Union officer William P. Craighill (New York 1864), and this was "popular with Union officers during the war... [and] Craighill's translation [was chosen] for the study of the military art [at West Point] from 1873 through 1879, and it provided cadets with a primer for the army's intellectual framework of the battlefield" (Michael A. Bonura, Under the Shadow of Napoleon: French Influence on the American Way of Warfare from the War of 1812 to the Outbreak of WWII, NYUP 2012, p. 153). A lovely copy of this important military manual.

A Bill to Establish a Uniform System of Bankruptcy Throughout the United States. Washington, DC: United States Senate, 1840. 21 pp. Folio (14" x 9"). Stab-stitched, untrimmed edges. A few minor stains, three faint horizontal fold lines, light toning. A generously margined unmarked copy. $750. * The historic Federal Bankruptcy Act of 1841 was enacted after the unprecedented commercial failures that followed the Panic of 1837. A relief measure, it was the first to permit voluntary bankruptcies. More than a generation had passed since the first Bankruptcy Act in 1800 and its repeal in 1803. The 1800 law had authorized creditors to place the debtor in bankruptcy and seize his assets, but it had not allowed debtors to choose bankruptcy. This 1840 Bill, which passed the Senate but was tabled in the House, was revived in the 27th Congress and passed in 1841. Its innovation, permitting voluntary bankruptcy petitions by persons "owing debts," tracks the 1841 Act, which was based on Congress's power to establish "uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies." Only two years after its enactment, charges of corruption and profligate expenditures, and at least one lower court's decision that the Act was unconstitutional, led to its repeal.

        John Sartain's engraving of George and Martha Washington and the "First Family"

      Philadelphia, c. 1840. 23.75" x 16". "Mezzotint engraving, [The Washington Family], (Philadelphia: Published by William Smith, [c. 1840]), 23.75"" x 16"" on a 29"" x 19"" sheet (visible), engraved by John Sartain after the painting by Edward Savage. Light dampstains, some scattered foxing, some of which affects engraving at upper right, else very good. Not examined out of frame. Edward Savage's picture is the only group portrait developed from life sittings of America's first ""First Family."" (They are identified in print on the present engraving in the lower margin (from left to right): George Washington Parke Custis, George Washington, Eleanor Parke Custis, Martha Washington and William Lee). In 1789-1790, the Washingtons posed for studies in New York City. From 1791 to 1794, Savage lived in London and did not resume work on the oil painting until he returned to the United States. On February 20, 1796, he advertised The Washington Family as the main attraction at the Columbian Gallery, his private museum in Philadelphia, where visitors could see ""The President and Family, the full size of life."" Engravings after this image earned the artist a fortune, as did the entrance fees collected from his frequent exhibitions of the canvas. Savage's catalogue states that Washington's uniform and the papers beneath his hand allude to his ""Military Character"" and ""Presidentship"". With a map of the new District of Columbia in front of her, Martha is ""pointing with her fan to the grand avenue"" now known as Pennsylvania Avenue. Because Savage had never seen Mount Vernon, he added imaginary elements such as marble columns. John Sartain (1808-1897) was born in England and apprenticed as an engraver. Seeking to establish himself as a printmaker, he emigrated in 1830 to Philadelphia, where he remained for the rest of his life. Sartain has been called the ""father of mezzotint engraving in the United States"". As a painter in oil and watercolor as well as a printmaker, he was involved in art education, serving as a director of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and on the board of the Philadelphia School of Design for Women, now Moore College of Art and Design. Sartain also served as art director for the Centennial Exposition of 1876. Baker 133. "

To an unnamed recipient ("Dear Sir"), stating that he has been unable to see him and that he must leave for Manchester, and requesting that he not mention his name to Col. Sherburne. "Returning too late from Preston I could not reach your house on Sunday evening & my avocations since have been such as to prevent me as yet from calling on you. I leave at an early hour tomorrow (Tuesday) for Manchester [.] In any correspondence you may have relative to Col.

        THE ADVENTURES AND RAMBLINGS OF A SAILOR, Written by Himself [manuscript caption title]

      [Bridgeport, Ct, 1840. Folio. Moderate wear with some loss to first few leaves. Minor soiling. Written in a clear and very legible hand. Good plus. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. A lively and entertaining account of the times and exploits of Reuben Nichols, who went to sea as a merchant sailor in 1811 at the tender age of seventeen, on the eve of the War of 1812. His narrative describes many encounters with other trading ships, with pirates and privateers, and tells of the sentencing of mutineers and deserters to death or brutal punishment under the whip's lash. Nichols lived through numerous skirmishes with British cruisers. After one such engagement he and his shipmates were impressed into service and taken to England, where he met John Quincy Adams, then minister to the Court of St. James. With Adams' help, Nichols set sail on an English ship bound for St. Petersburg. Among the many ports of call he encounters over the course of the narrative are Norway, Malta, Turkey, Greece, Smyrna, Seville, Cadiz, Lisbon, Gibraltar, Aruba, Brazil, Haiti, Grenada, among others. At a number of these destinations he had chance to observe and record the customs of the native inhabitants, as well as his own unusual and entertaining exploits. In Spain, for example, he notes a visit to abandoned torture chambers in monasteries. The narrative continues up to about 1840, at which point Nichols tired of the hardships of a seafaring life. Among the many interesting moments in the memoir is the author's 1837 rescue in New York City of John Hopper, who was to be tarred and feathered by an angry mob who believed him to be an abolitionist. In this effort, he was partly aided by the mayor of New York, Aaron Clark. A separate memoir by Hopper confirms Nichols' actions. The memoir references a number of important historic events, such as Napoleon's return to France in 1815; the Battle of Waterloo; the election of James Monroe as fifth president of the United States; the outbreak of a yellow fever epidemic in Charleston, South Carolina; and a defeat in battle of the revolutionary forces of Henri Christophe (later king of Haiti) in Haiti. Born near Bridgeport, Connecticut, the author returned there after his adventurous and exotic life at sea. Upon settling in Bridgeport, he involved himself in local politics and pursued a career in shipbuilding. An entertaining and interesting account of one man's life abroad.

        Archive of The Charles W. Morse Family Papers

      Bath, Maine; New York City. [circa 1840-1940]. An important collection of correspondence, documents, photographs, and related papers of Wall Street shipping and bank magnate Charles W. Morse and his sister Jennie Rodbird Morse, his lifelong confidant and collaborator. The collection consists of about 8.5 linear feet of material, the bulk of which dates from the 1880s-1920s. It contains over 300 letters (ALS, TLS, and Autograph cards), of which nearly 100 (along with several dozen telegrams) are by Morse. Also included are several other Morse family letters and correspondence from colleagues and friends, many financial and legal documents, over 100 photographs, an 1877 travel diary kept by Morse, six pocket diaries kept by Jennie, and several scrapbooks and ephemera, dating back to the 1830s and up through the 1930s. In addition to providing a rare glimpse into the shipping and shipbuilding life of Maine in the 19th Century, the collection documents the entirety of Morse's notorious career -- beginning in Bath, Maine (where he skillfully used family connections to gain control of the State's lucrative ice market, shipping, and shipbuilding industries), and his dramatic rise from "Ice King" to "Admiral of the Atlantic Coast"; and as one of Wall Street's top power brokers from about 1899-1909.

        Three Japanese Otsu-e paintings

      [n.p.]. [n.d.] (circa 1840's). "Set of 3 hand-colored paintings; authorship anonymous, as was standard to Otsu-e ; 1) Warrior with sword, approx. 61 x 21 1/2 cm; 2) Woman sweeping, approx. 61 x 26 1/2 cm; 3) Devil with mouse, approx. 64 x 23 cm; all in all light edgewear and minor creasing, otherwise fine. These folk- painting were made for the masses. Though seemingly rustic, each line and stroke was precise and intentional. Artisans were somewhat mechanical in producing the brushstrokes and worked from dawn til dusk in order to produce large quantities to sell. This repititious style became paternized and strokes were literally memorized. Otsu-e prints often expressed proverbs or were sold with moralistic poems, and in the late period served as amulets, such as finding a spouse, keeping children sleeping, or for good harvesting etc."
