        Viaggio intorno al globo principalmente alla California ed alle isole Sandwich negli anni 1826, 1827, 1828 e 1829?

      Tipografico Fontana, Turin 1841 - Two volumes, octavo, with four lithograph plates; a very good copy in old marbled boards, sympathetically rebacked. First Italian edition and very scarce: a most important book for California and Hawaii. Duhaut-Cilly was a French trader who reached Yerba Buena in 1827, and in the next two years visited most of the missions, presidios, and pueblos of Alta California. No other traveller had visited so many of the Californian establishments, and his is the best contemporary account of the region. He also describes at some length his 1828 visit to the Hawaiian Islands, and includes a vocabulary of the Hawaiian language. The plates show San Francisco, San Luis Rey, Fort Ross and Hawaii. This is the second edition of the book, much expanded with additional chapters from its first appearance in French in 1834, which is now extremely rare (John Howell Books conjectured in their catalogue 50 that only about a dozen copies survive); there has never been an English edition. The book evidently struck a chord in Italy: another edition appeared in Naples in 1842. 'This is an important edition? It includes, for the first time, in book form, an essay by Dr. Paolo Emilio Botta, Osservazioni sugli abitanti delle isole Sandwich e della California (Observations on the inhabitants of the Sandwich Islands and California). His Hawaiian observations are on pp. 339-359, followed by an Italian-Hawaiian vocabulary? and a list of Hawaiian numerals. Dr Botta's observations on California [are] also new to this edition?' (Forbes). Duhaut-Cilly's work was one of the eighty books selected by the Zamorano Club in California for their famous exhibition of books important for the history of that state. Appropriately, this copy once belonged to the club and has their duplicate release note over the club's bookplate in each volume. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Sandwich Islands: a Prize Poem , Recited in the Theatre, Oxford; June 15, 1841?

      J.Vincent, Oxford 1841 - Disbound octavo gathering, 16pp., a few spots yet a fine copy. From Hawaii to Oxford. A quaint romantic idyll devoted to the Hawaiian islands presented for an Oxford poetry prize in 1841. The poem offers a potted history of Polynesian life upon the archipelago, speculating on their mythical origins and lamenting native customs such as human sacrifice and infanticide and applauding the arrival of Missionary Christianity. The author clearly has more than a superficial understanding of Hawaii, as revealed in scholarly footnotes peppered throughout this slim pamphlet (although Forbes dryly notes in the Hawaiian National Bibliography that 'The author does not seem to have enjoyed subsequent success as a poet').

        [?Op. 119]. Autograph working musical manuscript fragment of a piano trio, possibly the Piano Trio No. 1, op. 119

      4 pp. written on 2 leaves. Oblong folio (ca. 374 x 272 mm.). Notated in ink on four systems of four staves each. Unsigned and undated. A working manuscript with numerous corrections and amendations. With manuscript annotations in both ink and pencil, possibly in the hand of Spohr's widow, identifying the manuscript. Worn and browned; edges torn and chipped; both leaves torn into sections, the second leaf lacking approximately one- third of the leaf. . "Regarded by many contemporaries as worthy of a place beside Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven in the pantheon of the greatest composers, he has, together with Gluck and Cherubini, been allotted a considerably lower status by posterity. Mozart's Figaro and Wagner's Tristan were both composed during Spohr's lifetime; his own work looks, Janus-like, towards both the formalism and clarity of the Classical tradition, and the structural and harmonic experimentation associated with 19th-century Romanticism..." Best known for his compositions for the violin, Spohr wrote very little in the way of chamber works for piano during his early years. "... Apart from the Quintet op.52 for piano and wind, he largely ignored the piano until his second wife's pianistic ability (and perhaps the greater technical perfection of the instrument) came to arouse his interest. His pieces for violin and piano contain some attractive music, particularly the programmatic (or, rather, impressionistic) Reisesonate op.96; but the five piano trios (1841–9) are masterpieces of their kind, and extraordinarily individual in their approach to the medium."

        Ten Thousand a-Year

      Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons, 1841. Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons, 1841 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Ten Thousand a-Year is a novel written by English barristerSamuel Warren. First published in 1841, it enjoyed widespread popularity in the United States and Europe for much of the century. The story chronicles events in the life of its iconic protagonist Tittlebat Titmouse and offers in-depth detail of English common law of the time. In three volumes complete. First edition in book form. When first published, the novel was split into 3 volumes for its United Kingdom release and 6 volumes for release in the United States. Ten Thousanda-Year was, in fact, first published in the Edinburgh Magazine in instalments in 1839. The first instalment appearing in October of that year at page 505 of No. CCLXXXVIII . Samuel Warren (1807 - 1877), was a British lawyer, novelist and MP. He was the author of Passages from the Diary of a late Physician, which appeared (183237) first in Blackwood's Magazine, as did also Ten Thousand a-Year (1839). Both attracted considerable attention, and were often reprinted and translated. His last novel, Now and Then (1847), was a social novel of criminality and the law, arguing from a Methodist perspective the moral case for reform. It is realistically observed, based in outline on an actual case in Wolverhampton, but had little success. Warren entertained exaggerated ideas as to the importance of his place in literature. With a newspaper clipping from 'The Times of 1842' inserted to volume one. Bookseller's labels to front pastedowns. Condition: In a half leather binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, generally smart but with slight wear to extremities, rubbing and occasional marks. Rear joint to volume I starting very slightly, front hinge strained. Internally, firmly bound. Bright but with occasional very slight foxing and handling marks, foxing predominantly to endpapers. Overall: VERY GOOD.

"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.

        Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians by George Catlin, Written during Eight Years Travel Amongst the Wildest Tribes of Indians in North America, 1832-39, with Four Hundred Illustrations, carefully engraved from his Original Paintings. and Coloured after Nature

      London: Printed by the Author at Egyptian Hall, Picadilly, 1841 [c.1890?]. London: Printed by the Author at Egyptian Hall, Picadilly, 1841 [c.1890?]. Two volume set. 264, 266pp. Small quartos [26 cm] Navy blue cloth with gilt stamped titles on the front boards and backstrips. Gilt stamped portraits of two warriors on horseback on both front boards. Complete with three maps and 400 lithographs in color. Near fine. The title pages of both volumes state 1841, but we believe these were likely published in the early 1890s. The title page is in two colors and the typography is more modern than the 1841 edition. The issued binding is distinctly late 19th century, but not the 1876 edition. The plates of this edition are full-color and bright, with no wear or tearing. & & A young lawyer turned portraitist, George Catlin traveled west from his home Pennsylvania in 1830 to fulfill his dream of recording on canvas the North American Indian and their way of life. It was his desire , he said, to paint "faithful portraits of their principal personages, both men and women, from each tribe, views of their villages, games, etc., and [to keep] full notes on their character and history. I designed, also, to procure their costumes, and a complete collection of their manufactures and weapons, and to perpetuate them in a Gallery Unique, for the use and instruction of future ages."& & In Saint Louis, Catlin met superintendent of Indian Affairs William Clark, with whom he went to Prairie du Chien for the negotiation of peace treaties with a number of tribes - Sioux, Missouri, Omaha, Iowa, and the Sac and Fox. In the fall of 1830, Catlin found himself at Fort Leavenworth, where he met and painted some of the eastern woodland Indians - Shawnees, Delawares, Kickapoos, and Potawatamies - who ere being forcibly emigrated from their old homes to new lands beyond the Missouri. Before the smallpox epidemic of 1832, Catlin visited the tribes of the lower Missouri and Platte Rivers - the Otoes, Missouris, Omahas, and Pawnees.& & During 1832 Catlin was able to travel aboard the steamboat Yellowstone, for a stay among the Indians of the Upper Missouri Basin - notably the Blackfoot, Crow, and Mandan. In 1834, he reached Fort Gibson, Arkansas, where he recorded some of the nearby Osages; and later in the year he accompanied Colonel Henry Dodge, who commanded a force of United States Dragoons on a visit to the Kiowas, Comanches, and Wichitas, on the Arkansas and Red Rivers. In 1836, Catlin went north to Minnesota, where he painted a number of Winnebagoes and Menominees, and visited the famed Pipestone Quarry. During the following year, he visited South Carolina, and Particularly Fort Moultrie, where there were imprisoned many Seminoles, captured during the long hostilities in Florida.& & By the end of the decade, the project had reached its conclusion. The result was Catlin&#39;s "Indian Gallery" consisting of an enormous collection of artifacts, of tools, implements, ceremonial equipment, weapons, and costumes, as well as more than four hundred paintings - scenes of tribal life in addition to the portraits. Shortly after taking his whole "Gallery" to England for an extended period, Catlin published the first of his many editions of &#39;Letters and Notes&#39;, which had begun as a series of articles that began in 1837. Variant of Wagner/Camp 84.2 (c.1890).

The Melton Hunt Going to Draw the Ram&#39;s Head Cover by Sir Francis Grant (1810-1878), painter and president of the Royal Academy, was exhibited at the Royal Academy, 1839. Of Grant, who is buried at Melton Mowbray, Siltzer notes that he was usually neglected by authors of books on sporting pictures, and writes (after many anecdotes of sporting life at Melton) that he "must have met most of these notabilites, so that in all these diversions from the main point, which is a sketch of the painter&#39;s career, we are walking beside him, so to speak, breathing that same sporting atmosphere - in 1839 he showed his Melton Hunt. Engravings have been made from both these pictures, but we will deal with the Melton Meet. There is a key to this engraving, and as keys usually get lost -" The Key identifies 37 participants in the Meet. This note and a passing mention in the Schwerdt catalogue are the only references to the Key; the only institutional copy known to us is in the Virginia Museum of the Fine Arts, which holds the original painting by Grant.

After studying under a private tutor, and at the University of Edinburgh, he was, in 1814, called to the Bar, at which he ultimately attained some distinction, becoming in 1834 Sheriff of Lanarkshire. In 1853, he received a Honorary Doctorate of Civil Law by the University of Oxford. When travelling in France in 1814 he conceived the idea of his History of Europe. The work was popular and translated into many languages, including Arabic and Hindostee. Alison was also the author of a life of Marlborough, and of two standard works on the criminal law of Scotland. He was elected Lord Rector successively of Marischal College, Aberdeen, and of the University of Glasgow. In 1852 he was created a baronet, during Lord Derby&#39;s administration.
