The DAB called Weld, "not only the greatest of the abolitionists; he was also one of the greatest figures of his time. His anonymity in history was partly due to his morbid modesty. He accepted no office, attended no conventions, published nothing under his own name, and would permit neither his speeches nor his letters to be printed. The National Era, an anti-slavery organ founded by Weld first published "Uncle Tom's Cabin," in its columns. Fresh, clean and firm copy. Bookplate. Raised bands, gilt border fillets, black leather spine labels a bit eroded, modest extremity wear.

        BARNABY RUDGE;

      1841. With Illustrations by George Cattermole and Hablot K. Browne. Complete in One Volume. London: Chapman and Hall, 1841. Original blind-stamped olive green cloth. First Separate Edition. After NICHOLAS NICKLEBY was published in monthly serial parts with separate plates in 1838-1839, Dickens decided that his future novels would be published in weekly serial parts that included the illustrations within the text -- loosely connected under the title of MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK. He began this project in April 1840 with his tale THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP; after forty-plus parts he completed that tale, and swung into the beginning of BARNABY RUDGE. In November 1841, after a total of 88 weekly parts, BARNABY RUDGE was complete. During this serialization, MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK (containing both novels) was also published in three volumes, one at a time; after serialization (in December 1841), each novel was also published separately in one volume, as with BARNABY RUDGE here. This is why the pagination of BARNABY RUDGE is odd -- with the text running from page [229] to page 306 (second half of Vol II of MH'sC), then from page [1] to page 420 (Vol III). At the conclusion of BARNABY RUDGE, Dickens abandoned this weekly method of plate-less serialization, and reverted to his prior method with MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT.~This copy is in the binding variant noted by Smith, of olive green fine-diaper cloth blind-stamped with a chain-like design running around the border's inner surface (as was later used on DOMBEY AND SON). The original endpapers are peach-coated -- one of several colors to be found, without known priority. The volume is in very good condition, with a bit of wear at the extremities of the spine and along the lower edges. The delicate original endpapers are only slightly cracked. Tough to find in better condition. Smith I pp 61-2.

        Wa-Kawn, A Winnebago Chief.

      J.T. Bowen, Philadelphia 1841 - Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Wa-Kawn, first a follower of Tecumseh, later made many accommodations with the white man but died from alcohol consumption. His widow became an anti alcohol activist. Chip to top edge and right corners. Small tears to edges. One piece from our collection of Native American portraits. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20.25" x 14.25".

        Map of the State of New-York with Parts of the Adjacent Country, embracing plans of the cities, and some of the larger villages

      Ithaca, NY: Stone & Clark, 1841. Copper-engraved wall map, with full original colour, "Engraved by S. Stiles & Co., of New York, and D. S. Throop of Ithaca," backed with new linen, trimmed in green cloth, varnished, on contemporary rollers, generally in very good condition. 44½ x 54¼ inches. A very rare map, the third edition of the most important state map of New York of the early nineteenth century. Based upon surveys authorized by the legislature, Burr's map was essentially the first official state map of New York, a fact that was emphasized by a notice on the first edition of 1830: "Published by [order of ] Simeon de Witt Surveyor General [of the State of New York] Pursuant to an act of the Legislature." A second edition appeared in 1834. The publication rights were subsequently purchased by Stone and Clark, who in 1841 brought out this new updated version of the map. In all editions it was the most accurate and detailed of New York for the period. Among the insets are a large plan of Manhattan (29" x 10¾"), and smaller plans of Syracuse, Hudson, Oswego, Poughkeepsie, Ithaca, Utica, Rochester, Schenectady, Lockport, Auburn, Buffalo, Albany, and Troy, as well as a fine engraving of the Erie Canal at Little Falls. This 1841 edition is not in Phillips' America, nor in Rumsey. See Rumsey, 2269 (for 1834 ed.).

In the following year, a wall map version of the map was published. The official status of the map was emphasized by a notice on the first (1830) edition of the wall map version: "Published by [order of ] Simeon de Witt Surveyor General [of the State of New York] Pursuant to an act of the Legislature."

        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'. 15 1/8 x 20 3/4 inches. 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

It is, as Goodspeed points out, "THE FIRST OF OUR SPORTING BOOKS TO TREAT OF THE ANGLER'S NEEDS IN A SYSTEMATIC WAY". He goes on to say, "In orthodox fashion Schreiner begins with an eulogy on sport, but on the unusual ground of its therapeutic value - 'It is a well established fact that by a judicious indulgence in the favorite sciences of fishing and gunning, many important diseases may be removed; among which are cited indigestion, nervous derangement, nervous pains, and debility, rheumatism, and spinal affections, and even the indomitable, though very prevalent and alarming complaint of the lungs'".

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.

Prepared from the Records of the Army Medical Department, and War-Office Returns. Folio (327 × 205 mm). Numerous tables, five of them folding. Ex-Royal College of Surgeons' Library, ink-stamp and cancellation to title page only, light browning throughout, slight staining at the inner margin of prelims. and last few leaves, but overall very good in modern drab paper-covered boards, old label mounted on the upper board. First Edition. Uncommon, five copies only on COPAC, three of which appear to be in BL, OCLC lists just one copy in the NY Academy of Medicine. Tulloch's work here represents the first fruits of the statistical enquiries into mortality that he began whilst serving in Burma. His painstaking gathering and interpretation of such data was to lead to his selection with Sir John McNeill to inquire into the Commissariat in the Crimea, resulting in controversial criticism of military arrangements and confrontation with Lord Lucan at a specially convened Board; "The Board's report rejected the findings of McNeill and Tulloch, shifting responsibility for supply difficulties from the Crimea to civilian departments in Whitehall. In 1857 Tulloch published a detailed justification of his actions in The Crimean Commission and the Chelsea Board, which drew further criticism from [the Commissary-General] but secured parliamentary approval; he was appointed KCB in April 1857." This copy inscribed, in a secretarial hand, "Presented to the Library of The Royal College of Surgeons by Sir James M'Grigor". M'Grigor, Wellington's Chief of Medical Staff in the Peninsula and a radical innovator of front-line medical practice, rose to become Director-General of the Army Medical Department and instigated numerous key reforms to aid in the medical and social well-being of the British Army, one of which was the collection and collation of such medical reports from all military stations.

        A Residence of Eleven Years in New Holland and the Caroline Islands

      Boston,: B.B. Mussey, 1841.. Duodecimo; contemporary full sheep, rebacked. Second edition of this important account. A homeless London waif, O'Connell, aged about eleven, sailed for Port Jackson as a cabin-boy (or perhaps as a prisoner) on board a convict ship. During some years' residence in New Holland, he 'accompanied Oxley on a six months' exploring expedition. Thus he became acquainted with the condition of the colony, the discipline of the convicts and the character of the Aborigines...' (Ferguson). With an important chapter printing his own thoughts on the differences between "northern and southern" tribes.In about 1826 O'Connell joined the whaler John Bull which having first stopped off in New Zealand made for the Caroline Islands with the view of moving on to the Sea of Japan. With the Captain drunk on deck, the ship was wrecked on a reef, and whilst the entire crew managed to escape in the boats, few survived the following three days and four nights afloat. Taken in by the natives, O'Connell and his shipmate George Keenan remained for five years, during which time the author married, fathered five children and was tattooed. His description is 'the first extensive ethnographic account of the island of Ponape' (Day). A five-page appendix gives a vocabulary of the language of the Caroline Islands.Taken off the island by the American schooner Spy, O'Connell and Keenan were imprisoned in Manila under suspicion of being either pirates or escaped convicts. With no evidence against them they were eventually discharged and sent to Macao and then Canton, from where they travelled to Peking to join a caravan for Constantinople. On reaching the Imperial city the travellers abandoned their plans and made for Canton overland and took ship for Halifax, Nova Scotia. O'Connell alone finally made New York in the autumn of 1835 and became the first tattooed man exhibited in the United States, returning to his circus roots.Copies of this Boston-published second edition are recorded with a pair of plates, but this unillustrated version appears to be the more common issue.Ferguson, 3268; Hill, 1250 (first edition).

        Emma

      London: Richard Bentley, 1841 A good to very good copy of Jane Austen's classic work in contemporary binding. Emma, first published in 1816, was reprinted by Bentley as part of his Standard Novels series in 1833. This is an early reissue from that series, printed in 1841 but retaining the engraved frontispiece and vignette title page from the original 1833 version. The binding has elaborate gilt compartments and leather title label to spine and gilt lines where the leather meets the marbled boards. The page edges and the endpapers are also marbled. The binding has some light wear to spine joints, corners and edges, and a little scuffing, but is bright and sound. The contents are very clean with only the odd mark (there is small brown marking in the margin that appears between pp 43 and 49). There is a little offsetting from the frontispiece to the vignette title page and both pages have a slight darker toning. A nice copy of a scarce work
