        The Old English Gentleman, or, The Fields and the Woods

      London: Henry Colburn, 1841 - Sadleir, who had a copy in boards, writes: "I remember an old bookseller in Edinburgh (who had been at one time employed by W.T. Spencer) telling me that Spencer regarded a board copy of THE OLD ENGLISH GENTLEMAN as one of the rarest three-volume items in his experience . " Wolff's copy, on the other hand, was rebacked with new labels and, in his own estimation, "pretty crude." The first of Mills' "rollicking hunting books" (Sutherland). "Like his contemporaries, 'Nimrod' (C.J. Apperley) and 'Yorkshireman' (Surtees), Mills deserves the foremost recognition amongst the ranks of those versatile scribes, pertaining to the order characterized by 'Jorrocks' as 'Gentleman sportsmen,' and with the works of those 'top-sawyers' and first of sporting and sportive penman" (Higginson) First edition. 3 vols., 8vo. viii, 293; [ii], 280; [ii], 274 + [2] pp. ads (undated). Uncut in the original drab gray boards, blue cloth spines with printed paper labels ( a bit rubbed). Etched bookplate of George Gilpin on the front pastedown of each volume. Lovely set thus.

        Los hijos de Bolivar. el Illampu, [with] En medio del combate, en que crecia por grados el ardimiento y bizarría del egercito Boliviano

      - Paris. Mandado litografiar por un Boliviano, Imp. Lemercier. c.335 mm x 493 mm. Los hijos de Bolivar en presencia de los dos gigantes del nuevo mundo, el Illampu, viendo desplegado en el cielo su pabellon briunfante atacaron con tal ímpetu, que su caballería en pocos instantes sobrepasó la línea de los enemigos hasta la retaguardia, arrollando al mismo tiempo la derecha de estos con su izquierda. [with] En medio del combate, en que crecia por grados el ardimiento y bizarría del egercito Boliviano cayo muerto, sobre el campo de batalla, el Generalisimo D. Agustin Gamarra, viniendo a encontrar su sepulcro en el suelo mismo, que acababa de ultrajar invadiéndolo tan injusta y temerariamente. Cuando el Mariscal Andrés Santa Cruz fue derrotado por las fuerzas peruanas marchó al exilio. En esas horas su vencedor, el presidente del Perú, Agustín Gamarra, decidió ir por más e invadió Bolivia. Pero el 18 de noviembre de 1841 sus hombres se enfrentaron al ejército local comandado por José Ballivián, ya ungido sucesor de Santa Cruz y proclamado presidente de la república. La batalla aconteció en la localidad de Viacha, provincia de Ingavi, y lleva para la historia el nombre de ésta última. Las tropas bolivianas portaban un nuevo fusil, bautizado “hannoveriano”, de muy buen calibre y alta efectividad. Esto hizo la diferencia y se cuenta que en el propio campo de operaciones supo exclamar Gamarra: “He estado en muchas refriegas desde la Guerra de la Independencia y nunca he presenciado un fuego tan graneado”. Lo cierto es que poco después, el jefe peruano caía abatido por uno de estos proyectiles y extendida la mala nueva, su ejército no pudo sobreponerse y fue derrotado. La batalla de Ingavi fue la gran victoria del ejercito Boliviano sobre las tropas peruanas, consolidando la independencia de aquel país y su fortalecimiento republicano.

        Camellia Hockerii

      Paris 1841 - Abbé Laurent (Lorenzo) Berlese (1784-1863) was born in Campo Molino near Treviso, in northern Italy. He moved to Paris as a chaplain and by 1817, through his own funding, began cultivating camellias. Interest in camellias peaked in the middle part of the nineteenth century, when large numbers of seedlings obtained from crossing variants of camellia Japonica were raised and named, mostly by the Verschaffelt family at Ghent in Belgium, and continuing with Berlese in Paris until he assembled a collection of around 300 species. In 1837, with his large collection of camellias amassed, many of them hybrid species, Berlese realized the importance of establishing a classification system and that a detailed monograph was required. The “Iconographie du genre Camellia ou Description et Figures des Camellia les Plus Beaux et les Plus Rares” was published in three volumes in Paris between 1841 and 1843, from the drawings made by J.J. Jung of the camellias in Berlese’s greenhouses. The arrangement of the text is unusual as the scientific and practical monograph is printed on the lower half of the recto of each text leaf with the description of the facing plate on the upper half and with the versos of the text leaves blank. Berlese was also a founding member and Vice President of the Société Royale d'Horticulture de Paris and. He lived for nearly 40 years in the French capital in contact with the highest scientific, artistic and political officials of his time. Each original stipple engraving is expertly colored and are fine examples of nineteenth century botanical art. This engraving, Camellia Hockerii, 13.25" x 10", is in very good condition with a foxing mark in the margin, slight discoloration and evidence of verso page text. This beautiful flower in shades of pink is well colored and detailed. The leaves, in rich shades of green, are also detailed and highlighted for a realistic and dynamic look. Arader Galleries is happy to reduce the price of this engraving by 50% if client uses our excellent framing services.

        Henry Clay writes a letter mentioning the National Bank, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison

      Washn, July 4, 1841 Third Person Autograph Letter Signed "H. Clay" within the text. Clay wrote in the third person: "H. Clays respects to Miss Maury, with his thanks for the testimony she has communicated to him in respect to Mr. Madison's opinions as to a Nat. bank. What caught her eye, as to Mr. River's statement relative to them, regarded Mr. Jefferson & not Mr. Madison." Letter folds, slight staining, and mounting remnants on the verso do not affect legibility in any way. Very good condition, with clear, dark writing. The first Bank of the United States had been chartered with the strong support of the Federalist party, over the vocal objections of Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and other members of the Republican party. It had expired in 1811, when the Republican-dominated Congress refused to renew its charter. On January 8, 1816, a bill was introduced for a Second National bank; it was to be chartered for twenty years, with its main branch in Philadelphia. The Bank would operate

"Sir, Permit me to dedicate to you this little work, under the conviction that beautiful as our National Melodies are, they gain an additional lustre by an association with the name of one so much their friend and patron. The advantage which the Music of Scotland has derived from your taste and ability, is so universally acknowledged, that anything I might say on the subject would be superfluous. May you be long spared to sustain, with that distinguished talent which is so much the admiration of the world, the excellence of the Melodies of your native land, and to claim that gratitude your countrymen so justly owe to your merits. I have the honour to be, Sir, Your most obedient Servant, Wm. Mitchison. Music Saloon, Buchanan-Street, Glasgow 1841." Contains an exhaustive list of 116 songs and music.

A background word about co-author Patrick Buchan, taken from: Musical Scotland, Past and Present by David Baptie, Published in Paisley, Scotland by J. and R. Parlane in 1894: "Peter Buchan, born Peterhead, 1790; died London 19th September 1854. Poet, editor, collector and inventor. Having invented an ingenious revolving press for copperplate printing, he in 1816 opened a printing office in Peterhead, and in 1819 compiled the "Annals of Peterhead, " 12mo, which he printed at a press of his own contrivance. Shortly after he followed this up with "An Historical Account of the Ancient and Noble Family of Keith, Earls-Marischal of Scotland." A good many other works were published by him, of which we shall here only notice "Poems and Songs" (1814) and "Ancient Ballads and Songs of the North of Scotland, hitherto unpublished, with Explanatory Notes" (2 Vols, Edin., 1828), and "The Garland of Scotia" (1841), along with John Turnbull (q.v.). In the early part of 1854 he went to London to endeavour to arrange for the publication of another volume of "Ancient Scottish Ballads," but fell sick and died there.

        Wa-kawn, a Winnebago Chief

      Philadelphia: J.T. Bowen, 1841. 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.

        Sih-Chidä & Mahchsi-Karehde. Mandan Indians

      Paris, Coblenz and London, 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. 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. Aquatint engraving by Hürlimann after Bodmer, state with date added to London imprint 'April 1th [sic.] 1841'.

Berlin, Veit & Co., 1841/Nicolai, 1844. 2 volumes (bound in 1). 4to (276 x 222mm). pp. (4), 61, (3), 63-123, (1), with 48 handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary half cloth (a bit worn). Of this scarce and attractive work only two volumes have been published. The beautiful plates drawn and lithographed by C.F. Schmidt depict many fine illustrations of orchids, such as Oncidium, Odontoglossum, Notylia, Scelochilus, Tigridia, Epidendron (3 various species), and Rhynchopera. Another plate shows Protea longiflora, a fine South-African plant, of which the seed was brought to the Botanic Garden in Berlin, where this plant was cultivated."Bleibende Verdienste um den Berliner Botanischen Garten, den 'Hortus regius Berolinensis', der sich damals noch in der Potsdamer Straße - auf dem heutigen Gelände des Kammergerichts und seiner Umgebung - befand, hat sich Heinrich Friedrich Link in mindestens dreifacher Hinsicht erworben. Zum einen bereicherte er ihn um viele neue, auch seltene Pflanzen, nicht zuletzt durch Samentausch mit anderen botanischen Instituten. 1843 wurden hier über 14 000 Arten gezählt, doppelt soviel wie noch zu Willdenows Zeiten; damit hatte Berlin den artenreichsten wissenschaftlichen Garten in Europa, eine Einrichtung von Weltrang (G.

        Douze lettres d'un communiste a un reformiste sur la communaute. Premiere [Douzieme lettre].

      Paris, Imprimerie de C. Bajat (Prevot, Rouannet, Chamerot, 1841-1842).. In-8, demi-veau vert bronze de l'epoque, dos lisse orne d'un decor romantique de dentelles, fers speciaux et filets dores (rel. leg. frottee), 166 p. Ensemble complet des 12 livraisons de cet important texte de combat que Cabet publia entre mai 1841 et fevrier 1842. Sous forme de douze dialogues pedagogiques, l'auteur s'efforce de populariser et de defendre son modele de communiste egalitaire, citant des passages entiers du 'Voyage en Icarie', des coupures de presse et livrant des comptes rendus de proces dans lesquels etaient impliques des communistes. C'est dans ces lettres qu'on trouve l'un des rares exposes sur le regime qui devra assurer la transition entre "societe actuelle" et communisme icarien. La septieme lettre, souvent reproduite, est consacree a la femme, "son malheureux sort dans la presente societe (...) -- Son heureux sort dans la Communaute": "Contre la pretendue civilisation moderne, qui traite encore la femme comme une espece d'esclave, et contre l'insolent despotisme de l'homme, qui, abusant toujours de sa puissance, impose ses lois a la femme ( ). Surtout contre l'ingratitude, l'injustice, la tyrannie d'une societe qui condamne plus de la moitie des femmes a l'ignorance, a la misere, a des travaux excessifs qui les extenuent, les defigurent et les assassinent..." (p. 49). (Fourn, II, 833. Prudhommeaux, n°47). Quelques rousseurs et quelques brunissures..
