        Star Spangled Banner

      Baltimore Geo. Willig Jr. 1840 - An Early Baltimore Broadside Imprint of "The Star Spangled Banner" [KEY, Francis Scott]. [SMITH, John Stafford, composer]. The Star Spangled Banner. Baltimore: Geo. Willig Jr., [n.d.c.a 1839-1841]. An very early Baltimore imprint of the score of the National Anthem. Two folio leaves, each with printing on recto and verso blank. (13 x 9 3/8 inches; 333 x 238 mm). With an engraved scene below the title of and artillery firing scene with a twelve-star flag and ships in the background. This engraveing as well as the title have been carefully hand-colored in a contemporary hand. Edges of leaves with some professional restoration and some very small chips and creases. A few spots and light toning. Overall a very good copy of this important piece of American history. This Geo. Willig Jr. Imprint is printed from the plates of the John Cole edition of 1825, with the only change being the publisher's name. It even retains the the plate number "152" on both leaves. These editions are Carr-type editions, being they are copies from the Carr "New Edition" of 1821, with the changes that the music is redivided from the original 6/4 into 3/4 time and the flute arrangement has been excluded. Carr being the publisher of the original edition of the "Star Spangled Banner" set to music. (Muller, 7) According to Muller "The knowledge that this edition was published between 1839 ti 1841 may be derived from the following facts. Cole retired from business in 1839, at which time he sold his stock to F.D. Benteen and others. Willig apparently acquired the plates for the "Star Spangled Banner," which he reprinted, retaining the Cole plate number and substituting his own imprint. A copy in the writer's collection with the signature "Catherine Ingersole, October 9th, 1841." serves as evidence that the publication was not issued after 1841." (Muller, 13). As in the Cole edition, the words "was" and "still" are transposed on like six. And the word "Broad" is eliminated in front of "Stripes" on line three. "Francis Scott Key's poem, inspired by the sight of the United States flag flying defiantly over Fort McHenry after the British attack in September 1812, was set to John Stafford Smith's 1770s melody "To Anacreon in Heaven." The tune, originally with words by Ralph Tomlinson, was composed for the Anacreontic Society, a British music club that held its meetings at the Crown and Anchor Tavern in the Strand. Not until 1931 was "The Star Spangled Banner" declared the nation's official anthem by an act of Congress. Note the misspelling of patriotic in the subtitle in this first edition, one of only a handful of surviving copies." (The Morgan Library). BAL 11081 (Section 4, Baltimore reprints). Howes. Muller 13.

A very good set.\"The most important book on California during its Mexican regime.\" (Howes, P267).\"This voyage, ostensibly to report on the whale fisheries in the Pacific, was actually primarily political in nature. The presence of the frigate V??nus in ports around the world would be of value to French commerce and diplomacy. After rounding Cape Horn, the expedition made calls up the coast of South America, to Hawaii, Kamchatka, and to California, in order to assist French traders who had been clamoring for support for some time. Du Petit-Thouars\'s account of his stay in California in 1837 is one of the most important and complete records of the Mexican period in California. In 1838m the VÃ?nus made a run for Easter Island, further investigated the coast of South America, then sailed for the Gal·pagos and Marquesas Island, Tahiti, and New Zealand. At Tahiti the expedition forced Queen PomarÃ? to write a letter to the King of France apologizing for mistreatment of French priests, and, further, to pay an indemnity and to salute the French flag. Du Petit-Thouars had also made a treaty with Kamehameha III of Hawaii. After visits to Sydney and Mauritius, the ship sailed home, arriving after a voyage of thirty months. Abel du Petit-Thouars, nephew of the famed French botanist Louis du Petit-Thouars (1758-1831), is credited with bringing the Marquesas under French protection (1842), as well as the Society Islands (1843), and he was made a vice-admiral in 1846. This present set [as this copy] consists of the four volumes if the Relation and the Atlas pittoresque of this voyage, essentially the historical narrative. Another seven volumes of text and three more atlases, by other writers, were published later. These later volumes detailed the scientific observations of the voyage.\" (Hill, 518). These later volumes are extremely rare.Hill 518. Howes P267. Sabin 21354. Streeter 2495.HBS 65310.$30,000

        Tales About America and Australia By Peter Parley

      Darton & Clark, n.d., but, London 1840 - Small octavo, with frontispiece maps of Australia and America and numerous illustrations;an excellent copy in original striped black and red cloth. Very rare: a history of America and Australia for children by American author Goodrich, under his more famous pen name "Peter Parley", with a charming woodcut vignette of Bungaree making a bow. The work includes a surprisingly detailed account of New South Wales including notes on Tasmania, as well as a significant description of the aborigines. Bungaree, the veteran of both the Investigator and the Mermaid is specifically mentioned, with a long note about his powers of mimickry: 'my friend requested Bungarry to show how governor Macquarrie made a bow. Bungarry happened to be dressed in the old uniform of a military officer, and standing up in the stern of his boat, and taking off his cocked hat, with the requisite punctilio, he made a low formal bow, with all the dignity and grace of a general officer of the old school.'

      Paris: Langlume, 1840. Single sheet measuring 305 x 222 mm., wove paper, lithograph, margins a little foxed, very good. Confronting image of a Port Jackson Aborigine, lithographed after a sketch by Jacques Arago, official artist of the expedition commanded by Louis de Freycinet. This portrait is stylistically similar to the work of Arago's predecessor Nicolas Petit, who served as an illustrator on the previous French voyage to Australian waters under Nicolas Baudin. The present portrait is strongly reminiscent of Petit's Aboriginal study titled "Sauvage adulte des environs du port Jackson", (plate 20 in the official Baudin voyage account).

        Neues Zoologisches oder naturgeschichtliches Lottospiel zum Nutzen und Vergnuen fur die Jugend, mit besondere Berucksichtigung zur Erwerbung nutzlicher Kenntnisse in der Natuergeschichte des Thierreichs - Jeu de Lotterie Zoologique - The Zooligical Lottery

      Germany: circa, 1840. Lottery game with 12 handcoloured illustrated cards (each with 15 illustrations of mammals), 60 printed markers (text in German, French and English) in a cloth sack and 12 glass counters in a patterned cloth sack, and 2 pp. instruction leaflet; all contained in the original painted timber box with lithographed titling label decorated in gilt; minor restoration to lid, else in excellent original condition. Rare German lottery game with Australian animals. A beautiful German children's lottery game in remarkably fine original condition. The theme of the game is mammals or the 'first class of the animal kingdom'. The object of the game is to be the first to fill the squares on an illustrated game card with the smaller name cards of the animals. The handcoloured drawings are based on the works of Buffon, Schreber, Cuvier and Schinz, and include a wide variety of mammals ranging from human beings to exotic Australian species, including the echidna, platypus, kangaroo and wombat. Games of this period with all of their pieces intact are particularly rare. This one is complete with its printed rule sheet, original glass counters and the original box.

The 1841 almanac is also particularly good on the development of Adelaide.

        The Picture Alphabet

      Bishop & Co., circa, Houndsditch 1840 - Duodecimo, 12 pp. in total, woodcut illustrations throughout; a charming copy in the original green printed wrappers, just lightly chipped at head of front, folded (not sewn) as issued. A delightful Alphabet, fully illustrated throughout in woodcut. Here are many favourites - the Fox, the Goose, and the Lamb - but where necessary, the publisher's evidently felt capable of stretching their young audience. Not only is K for Kangaroo, but there are more unusual inclusions such as I for Ibex, and even M for Mermaid. Sadly, inspiration only went so far; here, X is for the Letter X. The work also includes a child's ditty, slightly clipped in the original printing: "When school is done, g[o] home loiter not on the wa[y] / Come to school clean and play not by the way."

        Itinéraire de Carthargène[!] à Popaya, Lima et Santa Crux. [No place, ca. 1855]. 4to. Manuscript in brown ink on blue-lined (machine-made?) wove paper without watermark. Half tan cloth, sewn on 2 tapes, "Gustav" chemical-marbled sides, manuscript title label "Itinéraire Américain" on front board (in the same hand as the manuscript), green endpapers.

      A series of itineraries in French for trips through South and Central America by an unknown traveller, the title-page covering only the first two. The first runs through Cartagena, Santafé de Bogotá and Popayan (Colombia), Quito (Ecuador), Lima (Peru); followed by itineraries for trips from Lima to Santa Cruz (Bolivia); Lima to Santiago (Chile); Santa Cruz to Asunción (Paraguay); Asunción to Rio de Janeiro (Brazil); Rio de Janeiro to Montevideo (Uruguay); and finally from Santafé de Bogotá via Medelin (Colombia), Panama City (Panama) and Nicaragua to Antigua (Guatemala). Although the heading for the last itinerary indicates that it continues to Mexico, the description does not. Many additional sites are mentioned along the way including important archeological sites, such as Cusco. The itineraries give a great deal of information about the sites (more than 2 pages on Lima, for example), including the populations of most of the cities.The population given for Lima (80,000) agrees with that for the years 1840 to 1858 in Pictorial geography of the world and other publications from those years, while it was generally lower before and higher after, and the marbled papers suggest a date closer to the end of the period. The population for Rio de Janeiro (140,000) seems to be outdated (it was reported in 1830, which is implausibly early for the manuscript).With some leaves not used for the present manuscript lacking. In good condition, with the lower edge of 1 leaf dirty and an occasional minor spot.
