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.

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we shall here only notice "Poems and Songs" (1814) and "Ancient Ballads and Songs of the North of Scotland, hitherto unpublished, with Explanatory Notes" (2 Vols, Edin., 1828), and "The Garland of Scotia" (1841), along with John Turnbull (q.v.).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'.

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.

      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..."

Si tratta di un "leggendario" agiografico di grande gusto ed equilibrio, completo dei 366 ritratti e relative biografie, come è estremamente difficile da reperire. L'esemplare è in eccezionali condizioni di conservazione, estremamente fresco e privo di bruniture. Filippo Bigioli (San Severino Marche, 1798-1878) fu un rinomato pittore neoclassico attivo principalmente a Roma sotto la protezione dei Conti Torlonia, per i quali affrescò parte del palazzo e della villa di campagna. Il fratello Venanzio fu a sua volta scultore e intagliatore. Giovanni Wenzel, specializzato nell'incisione al bulino, fu attivo a Roma a cavallo della metà del XIX secolo, lavorando soprattutto su soggetti religiosi, principalmente da opere di Michelangelo e di Raffaello. > Nessun esemplare è censito in SBN.

        Voyage to Van Diemens Land.

      - Heustis, Daniel. Voyage to Van Diemens Land. A letter from Daniel Heustis, one of the exiles, to his brother William, forwarded to the editor of the Jeffersonian by Mr. Skinner. Published in the newspaper The Carthagenian, Thursday June 3, 1841, Carthage N.Y. 37.5 column cms. Folio 4pp disbound, light foxing, centerfold somewhat split, contemporary folded in 4. A presentable copy. A vivid and illuminating account of the conditions borne by the "Patriot" exiles on their voyage to Van Diemens Land. Gives specific details such as passengers (141 prisoners, 300 total), dates, times, ships & ports entered including Rio, St. Paul & Amsterdam Island. The ship is listed as H.M. Buffalo, under the Captain James Wood, and the only death being Mr. Asa Priest of Auburn N.Y. The editor notes in a short preface to the letter that this letter was written on March 7th, and had lain in the London post office awaiting payment of charges. He encourages readers to make a "subscription" to the post office in Watertown (N.Y.) to ensure no other letters will be delayed. Daniel Heustis eventually returned to the U.S. and in 1847 published an account of his "adventures & sufferings" which is one of the rarer Canadian rebellion prisoner narratives, recorded as Ferguson 4536.

        LETTERS AND NOTES ON THE MANNERS, CUSTOMS, AND CONDITION OF THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS.

      New York: Wiley and Putnam, . 1841 - Two volumes. viii,264; viii,266pp. plus hundreds of plates. Errata slip. Without two plates called for (but see below). Contemporary three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt. A bit of shelf wear. Bookplate on front pastedowns, with corresponding presentation inscription (see below). Map neatly repaired and laid down Japan tissue, very slight loss on bottom margin not affecting map. Very good. A presentation set, inscribed in both volumes by William Wiley, Catlin's American publisher, to John W. Brooks of Milton Hill, Massachusetts. First American edition of Catlin's famous book, issued the same year as the London first, with the same collation, maps and illustrations. One of the most important works on American Indians published in the 19th century. Besides the descriptions of his travels throughout the West, the book contains hundreds of line drawings of Indians, as well as two significant maps of Indian tribe locations. Catlin first went west in 1830, travelling extensively for the next six years accumulating his "Indian Gallery." LETTERS AND NOTES. was published when he brought the exhibition to London. The present copy lacks a total of fifteen numbered illustrations. Seven of these, however, never seem to have been issued with the book (they are numbered 23, 137, 142, 149, 159, 246, and 247). They are missing from other copies we have examined, including the Yale copy, and they are not referenced in the text. The errata note, tipped in at the titlepage, explains that though it may seem that several illustrations are missing, those referred to in the text are all present. Therefore, it appears that the only illustrations actually lacking from this copy are those numbered 24 to 27, and 129 to 132 (eight total illustrations, which were printed on a total of two plates). Since this is a presentation copy from the publisher in a special binding, it is possible that this lack represents the earliest issue of the American edition. WAGNER-CAMP 84:3. HOWES C241.

        Petit Buffon Illustre. Histoire Naturelle Des Quadrupedes, Des Oiseaux, Des Reptiles, Des Poissons et Des Insectes. (4 volumes) Par Le Bibliophile Jacob

      Paris: Didier, 1841. Quarter Calf, over Marbled Boards, with Slipcase to hold four volumes. Very Good. 12mo. (5" x 3.5", 13 by 9 cm.) With 62 hand-colored plates. Gumuchian 3551. Almost identical to the first edition of this work issued three years earlier except for addition in this edition of four wood engraved half titles. In any case, scarce to find an early children's Buffon such as this with the full complement of plates, not to mention with color. The first two volumes have a very light dampstain, nearly inconspicuous. Otherwise, light occasional foxing but generally clean. The contemporary calf spine head of volume 1 has chip and slight chewing. Elsewhere the leather has scuffs and light rubbing, but still attractive. The marbled paper slipcase is solid and attractive.

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

      London: Published for the Proprietor by Messrs. Colnaghi & Puckle, 1841. 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). 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.

Je vous suis très / reconnaissant de la correction / remplie de goût que vous avez pris / la peine de faire au second / hémistiche du quatrième vers : cette / sollicitude de votre part prouve à la / fois que vous apportez à diriger votre / journal la conscience la plus éclairée / et que vous aimez sincèrement la poésie / et les poëtes, même les plus humbles. / Votre correcteur d’épreuves ordinairement / sagace et vigilant, ne l’a pas été à l’égard / du second vers ; une grosse faute d’impression / s’y est glissée ; on a mis agonisant / au lieu de agonisait. Espérons que / l’univers n’en saura rien. / Je vous renouvelle, Monsieur, / mes remerciements empressés; et vous / prie d’agréer l’assurance de ma / considération la plus distinguée. / T. Dondey de Santeny». Les lettres de Théophile O’Neddy sont d’une insigne rareté. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
