        Wa-kawn, a Winnebago Chief

      Philadelphia: J.T. Bowen, 1841. Hand-coloured lithograph. Very good condition. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. Also known as the Snake, Wakawn (d. 1838) was a bold, indomitable Winnebago chief, who fought in the 1811 Battle of Tippecanoe as part of the Indian Confederacy formed by the Shawnee leader Tecumseh and his brother Tenskwatawa to protect native lands from the encroachment of Western settlers. He again fought with Tecumseh in support of the British in the War of 1812, after which he made peace with the United States. He reversed his previous positions and began to advocate Indian displacement and insist that Winnebago children be educated at the Indian School at Prairie du Chien. This earned him the respect of the U.S. government, but resulted in harsh censure from the other Winnebago chiefs, who accused him of too eagerly adopting the white man's customs. The Winnebago inhabited the Great Lakes region. McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk, and Black Hawk. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. BAL 6934; cf. Bennett p.79; cf. Field 992; cf. Howes M129; cf.

        Memoirs of extraordinary popular delusions.

      London: Richard Bentley, 1841. Mackay, Charles (1814-89). Memoirs of extraordinary popular delusions. 3 vols. [iii]-iv, [2], 400; [6], 506; [6] 404pp. Vol. I half-title lacking. 5 plates, including frontispieces to all volumes. London: Richard Bentley, 1841. 222 x 137 mm. Late 19th century half morocco gilt, marbled boards, all edges gilt, spines a bit faded, hinges a little tender. Minor occasional foxing but very good. First Edition of this classic work on crowd psychology by the Scottish journalist Charles Mackay, still in print under the title Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds. Among the ?popular delusions? covered are three early instances of what we now call economic bubbles: The South Sea Company bubble of 1711-20, the Mississippi Company bubble of 1719-20, and the Dutch tulip mania of the early seventeenth century. Present-day financial writers such as Michael Lewis and Andrew Tobias have praised Mackay?s accounts of these economic disasters, and Lewis included Mackay?s financial mania chapters in his The Real Price of Everything: Rediscovering the Six Classics of Economics (2008). Other delusions debunked by Mackay include alchemy, fortune-telling, animal magnetism, prophecies, religious relics, the Crusades and witch hunting.

        The Presentation of a newly-elected Chief of the Huron Tribe, Canada

      London: Published for the Proprietor by Messrs. Colnaghi & Puckle, 1841. Hand-coloured lithograph drawn on stone by H. Lynch after Thielcke, printed by Day & Son, sheet size: 21 3/8 x 16 3/8 inches. Repairs to margins, some expertly closed tears. A very rare image of the Huron Tribal Council, and the presentation of Robert Symes as an honorary chief. Robert Symes, an Englishman, was a lawyer, judge and the first chief of the Quebec city police (serving from 1838 to 1841). His full Huron name was Robert Symes Esquire Hotwatsi ('Hotwatsi' means hot whiskey in the Huron language). The present image records his election as an honorary chief of the Huron tribe in Loretteville (now Wendake) about 12 miles north of Quebec City. Thielcke was born in St. James's Palace in London where his parents were both members of the Royal household. He trained at the British Royal Academy Schools, and exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1805 and 1816, and at the British Institution in 1811, 1815, and 1816. At some point Thielcke was appointed "Portrait Painter to HRH the Duchess of York", a title that served him well in Canada and the United States. The date of the appointment is not known but it seems he retained this appointment until 1820, when she died. Thielcke was in Quebec by November 1832 when he advertised as a portrait and miniature painter and he spent the rest of his professional career in Canada and America. He produced some very accomplished portraits, but this is probably his best known North American work. Château Ramezay Museum, in Montreal has the original oil painting on canvas on which the present image is based, it is titled "Presentation at Lorette of the newly elected chief at the Huron Tribal Council, 1840". McCord Museum M20009; National Archives of Canada, R9266-2676 & R9266-2677; and W.H. Coverdale Collection acc. no. 1970-188-641).

        Inaugural Address of President Harrison. National Intelligencer .... Extra. Thursday, March 4, 1841

      [Washington, 1841. Folio broadside. (24 x 19 1/2 inches). Text in 5 columns, divided by single rules. Very rare first printing of Harrison's inaugural address: the longest in United States history and what many believed caused his death after only thirty-two days in office, the shortest tenure of any American President. On a cold and wet March 4, 1841, newly-elected President William Henry Harrison famously delivered this address without coat or hat. The longest inaugural address in United States history, his anti-Jackson/Van Buren, pro-Whig agenda took over two hours to deliver. In the days following the address and the inaugural balls, Harrison caught a cold. The cold lingered, and pneumonia and pleurisy set in. Harrison would die on April 4, 1841, on his thirty-second day in office -- the shortest tenure of any American President -- becoming the first President to die in office. We could locate but five surviving examples of this broadsheet extra, with none in the Library of Congress.

        Indian Utensils and Arms

      Paris, Coblentz and London, 1841. Aquatint engraving by Du Casse after Bodmer, proof on india paper mounted, issue with date at end of English imprint. Small tear to lower blank margin not affecting plate area. A rare India proof of this elaborately composed grouping of Indian artifacts based on drawings made of items that Prince Maximilian purchased and brought back to Europe as well as belongings sketched by Bodmer in situ and retained by their original Indian owners. This cornucopia of Indian manufacturing includes 2. stone knife found near New Harmony, Indiana; 4. gunstock type club; 5. lance, Sauk and Fox Tribe; 6. shield; 8. rawhide storage container, ?Cheyenne Tribe; 9. moccasins, ?Iroquois Tribe; 10. quiver, bow and arrows, ?Crow or Sioux Tribe; 12. pipe, Mandan Tribe; 14 ball, Mandan or Hidatsa Tribe; 15. hoop and pole game, Mandan Tribe; 16. war whistle, Mandan Tribe; 17. drum, Mandan Tribe; 18. moccasins, Sioux Tribe. 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.

        The Orchardist's Companion a quarterly journal, devoted to the history, character, properties, modes of cultivation, and all other matters appertaining to the fruits of the United States, embellished with richly colored designs of the natural size, painted from the actual fruits when in their finest condition

      Philadelphia: A. Hoffy, 1841. 2 volumes in one, quarto. (11 5/16 x 8 5/8 inches). Title with wood-engraved vignette. 47 (of 48) hand-coloured lithographs. (Lacking plate 35 the 'Red Cheek Melacotan', title to 'vol.I' and pp.xi-xii from the 'Introduction'). Contemporary purple/red half roan, over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in the second compartment, numbered in the fourth Provenance: George W.B. Felten (early book label) 'The first American journal completely devoted to fruit' ("Oak Spring Pomona") and one of the rarest of American works illustrated with hand-coloured lithographs. Alfred Hoffy was a skilled lithographer who worked for several firms in Philadelphia, but fruit and fruit trees were his major enthusiasm. His Orchardist's Companion was the first published result of that passion. It is notable for a superb series of colour plates devoted to various fruits, the first such published in the United States (and not to be confused with Robert Hovey's Fruits of America , published in Boston from 1846 to 1852). "The book was dedicated to the President and Members of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society...One of these members was a local nurseryman, Robert Buist (1805-80), who had been trained in the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh, before coming to Philadelphia in the 1820s. There his garden became a centre for the introduction of new plants and seeds, and he wrote several books as well. In a 'Notice' dated March 1842 'A. Hoffy is doing himself the honor of announcing to his friends, subscribers, patrons and the public, that Mr. Robert Buist has kindly accepted at his hands the future Editorial department of The Orchardist's Companion, at the same time cannot omit expressing his feelings of satisfaction and pride in the opportunity of presenting to them so valuable an acquisition to the views of this work......The fruit illustrated in the ... plates was usually supplied from gardens near Philadelphia. The total number is made up of fourteen pears, eleven apples, eight peaches, seven plums, three grapes, two cherries, two strawberries, and a single apricot ... [The present copy is shy one peach]. All 48 [plates] were printed by P.S. Duval's Lithographic Press in Philadelphia and coloured by hand, probably by Hoffy's pupils. Hoffy himself drew and engraved [sic.] all the first 12; thereafter two of his students, D.S. Quinton and Edward Quayle, helped him...The titlepage vignettes were drawn by Hoffy and engraved by J.H. Brightly" ( Oak Spring Pomona ). Copies of Hoffy's work vary in collation. It was issued in parts, but Hoffy recommended that subscribers eventually bind the parts into two separate volumes: one of preliminary text, and a second containing the plates and their 'descriptive pages'. Wainwright notes that Hoffy issued parts of the Orchardist's Companion on a quarterly schedule beginning in 1841, with each part containing twelve illustrations of fruit. The final installment of the work, which raised the total to sixty plates and which is dated 1842-43, is not usually found and is lacking here. In the present copy all the text and the plates are in a single volume. The title ('Vol.I April. 1841') intended for the front of volume containing just text has been abandoned and the title which Hoffy meant to be bound in at the start of the plates ('Vol. 2 April. 1841') is bound in at the front of the text. Despite Hoffy's attempts at similar efforts, enthusiasm for his pomological productions waned. "Patronized by an impressive list of subscribers headed by the President of the United States, endorsed by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, and the recipient of a silver medal awarded by the American Institute of New York, The Orchardist's Companion nevertheless withered on the vine for lack of adequate support" (Wainwright). Cost was certainly a factor; though great plans were laid, no further additions to The Orchardist's Companion were forthcoming. Still, Hoffy was successful in creating an American fruit book of considerable beauty that became an early benchmark for the genre. Bennett, p.86; Oak Spring Pomona 59; Wainwright Philadelphia in the Romantic Age of Lithography, p.42.

        View of the City of Boston from Dorchester Heights

      New York: Published by W A Coleman ... for Robt. Havell, Sing Sing N.York, 1841. Aquatint by and after Havell, printed in blue and black by W. Neale, 'Coloured by Havell & Spearing'. A fine copy of this 'majestic view of Boston' (Deák) by Havell: landscape painter and engraver of Audubon's masterpiece 'Robert Havell gives us a majestic view of Boston composed of highly ordered elements: the open-spaced rusticity of the foreground, which serves as a staging area for viewing the city, is linked to the densely developed metropolis in the background by a curving watercourse ... The city itself is presented most appealingly in the configuration of a terraced pyramid where solid buildings and graceful church spires make their way steadily to the top. Although an air of ... tranquility prevails, the sky-canopied view is crowded to the very edges with signs of industrial and trading activities. Bostonians familiar with the nineteenth-century topography of their city are likely to be able to identify a host of buildings and locations. The most conspicuous architectural landmark is ... the State House, the large, domed building at the pinnacle of the view.' (Deák). No doubt inspired by the example of John James Audubon, his long-time collaborator and friend, Robert Havell had emigrated to America in September 1839. He settled at Tarrytown, beside the Hudson River, and went on to establish himself as both an engraver and landscape painter of note. The painting on which the present print is based was first exhibited by Havell in 1841 at the National Academy of Design. Deák Picturing America 509.

        Sih-Chidä & Mahchsi-Karehde. Mandan Indians

      Paris, Coblenz and London, 1841. Aquatint engraving by Hürlimann after Bodmer, state with date added to London imprint 'April 1th [sic.] 1841'. A fine full-length double portrait by Bodmer, composed from sketches made during the winter of 1833-1834 during the travelers sojourn at Fort Clark, on the banks of the upper Missouri River. On the left stands Sih-Chidä (`Yellow Feather') a young warrior who was fascinated by the work of the two foreigners. His portrait was carried out over three days in early December 1833. In it, he wears the beaded hair brows with long strings of dentalium shells and beads, a member of the Dog Society, the cluster of feathers at the back of his head may be an insignia of that group. Around his neck is draped a tippet of otter fur, the ends fringed with quill-wrapped leather. His heel-trailers are made of otter fur lined with red cloth and represent battle exploits. On the right is Mahchsi-Karehde (`Flying War Eagle'), who at just over six feet was the tallest of the Mandan. He also showed much interest in Bodmer's work, and over the winter was a frequent visitor, often bringing friends to look at Bodmer's drawings. He was a member of band of warriors that regulated the important affairs of the tribe. The wolf tail on his heels and painted eagle feather in his hair denote battle coup. His rich clothing and general demeanor all denote a proud and successful man. 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.

Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        Coronation, the Winner of the Derby Stakes, at Epsom, 1841

      London: Messrs. S. & J. Fuller at their Sporting Gallery, Rathbone Place, W., 1841. Colour-printed aquatint by Charles Hunt, finished by hand and highlighted with gum arabic. Printed on heavy wove paper. A nice impression with lovely colour. Expert repairs to margins. Image size: 12 ½ x 16 5/8 inches. A magnificent portrait of the celebrated Derby-winner Coronation by Herring, one of the most acclaimed sporting artists of the nineteenth century. Herring is an outstanding and imaginative artist who at an early age showed an aptitude for handling both riding whip and pencil. At a young age, fate took Herring to the Doncaster races where he saw the Duke of Hamilton's horse, William, win the St. Leger. The sight inspired him to attempt the art of animal-painting, in which he subsequently excelled. In addition to being a successful horse painter, Herring made his livelihood as a coachman, and for some time drove the Highflyer coach between London and York. When eventually he retired as a coachman he immediately obtained numerous commissions and was able to devote himself entirely to his art. Herring had no education in art until he definitely set up as an artist, when he worked for a short time in the studio of Abraham Cooper, R.A. He painted an immense number of racing, coaching, and other sporting subjects, many of which were published by the sporting printsellers and the sporting magazines. He was a frequent exhibitor at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Artists; he was elected a member of the latter society in 1841. While in later life he painted a number of subject-pictures, it was as a portrait-painter of racehorses that Herring earned his fame, and no great breeder or owner of racehorses is without some treasured production of Herring's brush.

Herring, Senior (1795 to 1865) , p. 75-76.

Eames (signatures) A fine copy of the text volumes recording the 1832-34 travels of the German Prince Maximilian of Wied-Neuweid and Swiss artist Karl Bodmer on the Upper Missouri River. Prince Maximilian was already an experienced naturalist and explorer in 1832, having made an important scientific expedition to Brazil in 1815-17. His preparations for his trip to North America including retaining the skilled artist, Karl Bodmer, to record illustrations of the journey. Arriving in the fall of 1832, the Prince ascended the Missouri River in the spring of 1833, going as far upstream as the American Fur Company post of Ft. Mackenzie in present-day Montana, and spending the winter at Ft. Clark, near the Mandan Indian villages. During this prolonged stay, he and Bodmer had ample opportunity to observe the Indian tribes of the Upper Missouri in their full glory, carefully recorded by Bodmer in watercolors. In the spring of 1834 they returned to Europe, and devoted the next five years to preparing the text and plates for this publication. Prince Maximilian and Bodmer were able to record in both words and pictures the Plains tribes in their heyday. They were witness to hunting parties, Indian dances, ceremonies and life among the Mandans and other tribes, as well as the incredible scenery on the upper Missouri before the era of mass settlement.

La septième gravure, due à Raffet, intitulée "Utilité des fenêtres qui donnent sur la rivière" serait selon Carteret (III, 299), "fort rare".

La "Bibliothèque Charpentier" fut créée en 1838 par l'éditeur Gervais Charpentier (1805-1871) ; ce dernier, afin de réduire le prix du livre, adopta un format plus compact (in-18), reconnaissable à sa couverture jaune. La collection proposait des rééditions de romans d'auteurs contemporains et classiques, visant un public cultivé et privilégiant le plaisir de la lecture plutôt que l'érudition.

"When, after the death of Varela, the original version of the Stabat mater fell into the hands of the Parisian publisher Aulagnier, who printed it and arranged a performance, Rossini, partly at the prompting of Troupenas and partly because the work published by Aulagnier was a composite, disowned this version and decided to complete the work himself. The revised Stabat mater was ready by the end of 1841. The first performance, arranged by the brothers Léon and Marie Escudier, was in Paris at the Théâtre Italien on 7 January 1842. It was received with enormous enthusiasm. The first Italian performance, at Bologna, followed in March under the direction of Donizetti." Philip Gossett in Grove online

        ARIANA ANTUQUA. A Descriptive Account of the Antiquities

      1841. Fine. AFGHANISTAN'S LONG HISTORY WILSON, H. H. ARIANA ANTIQUA. A Descriptive Account of the Antiquities and Coins of Afghanistan: With a Memoir on the Buildings called Topes, by C. Masson, Esq. London: Published under the Authority of the Honourable the Court of Directors of the East India Company, 1841. Quarto. Xvi,452pp. + 37ff. plates (numbered I-IV, I-IX, I- XXII, plus one large folding map, plus one unnumbered plate showing the Arianian alphabet.) Horace Hayman Wilson (1786-1860) Boden Professor of Sanskrit at Oxford, and Librarian to the East India Company, compiled the first Sanskrit-English dictionary. Charles Masson was actually James Lewis (1800-1853), who adopted the alias after deserting from the British Army in India. Travelling in India and Afghanistan, he learned the local languages, uncovered and documented many important archaeological sites, and collected antiquities. If his advice had been followed, the slaughter of the British Army in Afghanistan in 1841 would have been averted. His description of the "topes" (stupas, or shrines) occupies pp. 55-119. The plates, lithographed by J. Basire, depict the stupas and some of the finds, including over 500 coins which document the various dynasties, from Alexander the Great to the 7th century, which ruled Afghanistan, or "Ariana Antiqua." The work of Wilson and Masson provided most nineteenth- century knowledge of the early history of the area between India and Persia. Internally fine, in original publisher's ribbed cloth decorated in blind and titled in gilt. Corners bumped; some spotting, fading and wear to spine ends, rear internal hinge is cracked. Laid-in are three photographs, perhaps from the 1950s. Two (measuring 8x10 inches and 5x8 inches) show a stupa in a deserted area, with a man in a sola topee and jodhpurs, and one (8x10 inches) shows a dry mountainous area. Scarce.

        Whaling Log of the Brig Anawan. April 1843 - October 1844.

      Folio, unpaginated. About 100 pp. of manuscript entries. This is the second vessel of that name - spelled with one "N" by the journal keeper, but appearing in Lund, Starbuck and Sherman as "Annawan," with two "N"s. She was a 108 ton brig built in 1841, and this was her second voyage. Her captain was Leonard S. Dexter, and she had a typically "short" South Atlantic trip of 18 months, returning 530 barrels of sperm oil. As was customary they sailed to the Western Isles and were able to land a sperm whale and several blackfish on the way. Then to the so called "Southern Ground" in the mid-Atlantic, then back to the Azores by August, where the crew went on liberty. They crossed the equator in October and fished off the coast of South America with some success, catching several sperm whales. By January 1844 they were cruising off the Rio de la Plata. As the weather warmed they cruised slowly northward. Just off the equator, in Apri,l they encountered a pod of sperm whales and landed four of them. Then back the way they came and home by November. This is a complete journal, consisting of terse, poorly spelled entries that give information on position, weather, course, ships spoken and whales chased and taken. It is illustrated with thirty whale stamps of three different sorts - sperm whales, blackfish, and flukes. They are stamped in blue or black ink, depending on what color ink the writer was using that day. The writer is not identified, but on a blank page a man named Ennon(?) Hammond has practiced his penmanship and signature. The handwriting looks like the writing in the rest of the journal, so... Bound in quarter calf over marbled boards, rubbed. Pages clean. A very nice example of an Atlantic voyage with handsome whale stamps.

        Essai sur les glaciers et sur le terrain erratique du Bassin du Rhône.

      Marc Ducloux, Lausanne [Switzerland] 1841 - Lausanne, 8vo, [vi], x, 363 p., folding colored map, 8 lithographed plates, 23 text figures, plus engraving on verso of rear wrap. A VG+ copy in the original printed wraps. The wrappers are well preserved, as is the lettering and decoration on the printed paper backstrip. Sewing and hinges solid, binding very firm. Text untrimmed and unopened, with only minor wrinkling to some page extremities. Save for a bit of light foxing to a few pages, the text pages are typically fresh, clean and bright, as are the engraved plates and colored map. The map "Carte du terrain erratique de la Vallée du Rhône", unfolds to 18 by 15 inches, and is like new. The folding plate of the Rhône Glacier is striking. Charpentier's pioneering work on glaciology has been called one of the grandest contributions to geology of its time (Zittel, p. 226). The first part of this essay describes Alpine glacial phenomena with a precision and completeness far beyond any previous contribution. Part two discusses erratic blocks, and the author concludes that only glaciers could have transported the blocks and stranded them in their present positions. The origin of the theory of Alpine glaciation is commonly credited to Louis Agassiz, but Agassiz's initial glacial studies were made at the initiative of Charpentier, and under his personal guidance. Many modern geologists thus regard Charpentier as the rightful scientific parent of the glacial theory, and this treatise is his seminal work on the subject. No previous ownership indications. A handsome copy of a scarce and important treatise in its original state. Ward and Carozzi 474. Zittel, 1901, History of geology, pp. 222-227. Not in BMNH. Bookseller Inventory # OG5008. $1300.

        Letters and Notes on the Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians.

      London: Published By the Author, At the Egyptian Hall, 1841. First edition, first issue. Octavo, bound in contemporary gilt-paneled calf. With 3 maps and 310 plates. An exceptional near fine example, rebacked, with the plates clean. Rare in contemporary calf. Less than two years after his arrival in London, Catlin published this, his Manners, Customs and Conditions of the North American Indians. It was immediately recognized as a monumental work in American ethnology, combining Catlin?'s unique knowledge and experiences with his rare artistic talent. The 309 line-cut reductions of his original paintings, together with the accompanying text, beautifully and accurately record virtually every aspect of Native American life— ceremonies, dances, hunting methods, forms of warfare, and daily chores. "No individual has contributed so much, of such great importance; no individual has had a greater influence upon the Western Americana art, literature and history of our country than George Catlin" (McCracken).
