        The Travellers meeting with Minatarre Indians. Near Fort Clark

      Paris, London, Coblenz, 1842. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Alex Manceau after Bodmer. This is one Bodmer's most famous images: the only depiction he made of both his sponsor, Prince Maximilian, and of himself. The travelers spent the winter of 1833-1834 at Fort Clark, between the Knife and Heart rivers in the territory of the Mandan and Hidatsa Tribes, Bodmer here shows the their first meeting to with the Hidatsas outside the palisade fortification of the fort; a carefully composed image ably portraying the wary curiosity with which the representatives of two very different ways of life greeted each other. Bodmer stands, top-hatted, to the far right, Prince Maximilian is next to him, Dreidoppel is visible behind the two of them. The individuals amongst the Hidatsa include Ahschüpsa Masihichsi (`Chief of the Pointed Horn') whom Bodmer had painted on 28 February 1834. 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. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18.

        Noah Webster promotes some of his best-known works, including his bible, grammar and speller while disparaging his competition!

"Autograph Letter Signed, ""N Webster,"" 1 page, 7.75"" x 10"", New Haven, March 31, 1842, addressed in his hand on the integral address leaf to the Reverend Samuel Parker in Ithaca, New York. Expected folds, moderately toned at extreme margins, small loss on integral leaf from seal tear, else very good.""I have lately received from Mrs Parker five dollars on account of books sold, & ten I received last winter. It was not for money that I wrote to you for a statement of books sold; but to ascertain the condition of things. The bearer of this, I expect, will be the Rev. Smith Dayton of the Methodist connection who is very much my friend. He has been many years a teacher & is now engaged for a few days in spreading my books: The Bible, large & small; The Testament, large & small; the History, Manual & Grammar. I suppose he can do nothing for me in Tompkins County, but perhaps he may. You will give him your advice. The Deputy Superintendent of Schools in Herkimer has recommended Sanders' Sp[elling] Book & other books. I am surprised at this, if anything, in these times, could surprise me. The critical state of public affairs & the wretched state of money is all against me, & probably against you, but I see no present remedy. If Mr Dayton shall want any of the books of mine in your possession, please to deliver them to him. We are in comfortable health & Mrs W joins me in love to Mrs Parker & her daughter...""On the verso, Webster adds a short postscript: ""I see Cobb’s new spelling book is highly praised in the New York Sun. I have not yet seen it. We have a great many such books & all are the best."""

        Autograph letter signed, to Benjamin Hawes, a lengthy letter concerning the abolition of slavery in the West Indies and the conversion of plantation slave labor into a free labor system

      Ipswich 1842 - Early annotation at the top right corner. An incredible content 9-page letter about the transition from slavery to free labor in the West Indies: ". you cannot force these to labour by the whip, as they are now free Men ." With the passage of the Slavery Abolition Act in 1833, Great Britain ended slavery in the West Indies. In the years following Emancipation, the former slaves were indentured to their former masters before moving to a wage labor system. However, this period saw an economic decline in the region: sugar production drastically slumped, the price of sugar surged and little of the £20 million awarded to the West Indian planters under the Abolition Act was re-invested in the West Indies. The economic woes prompted a Parliamentary investigation. The present letter, written by Thomas Clarkson (1760-1846) the father of the British abolitionist movement, was written to a then sitting member of Parliament, Benjamin Hawes, a young but influential Whig politician. The lengthy letter begins: "I have not the honor of knowing you personally, but only as an upright member of Parliament, and as such I take the Liberty of addressing you, knowing that you are now sitting as a member of a parliamentary committee for inquiring into West India concerns, as they relate to difficulties or impediments which may stand in the way of a fair remuneration to the planters in the cultivation of their estates. This question, Sir, upon which you were called to deliberate, is of immense importance; and it will require the strictest impartiality, both towards the interests of the Masters and of the Servants to develop it, so as to come to a satisfactory conclusion; for if you take the side of the servants unduly against their masters you may become the means of enraging the former to make such exorbitant demands in the shape of wages, as to make it impossible for the latter to cultivate their Estates; and if, on the other hand, you take the side of the Planters unduly against their Servants, so that their wages will not enable them to live, the servants will refuse to work, and thus the Estates again will go uncultivated; and you cannot force these to labour by the whip, as they are now free Men." Clarkson continues by arguing against the blatant rascism brought forth by the advocates of the planters to the committee: ". the Negroes of the present day are not the sort of People here described. Their behaviour ever since the day of their Emancipation has been in general most exemplary and laudable. They have been moral, industrious, orderly and well disposed. Crime has so diminished amongst them, that the gaols are frequently quite empty . You are aware, Sir, that in the days of Slavery nothing would exceed the vile management of a West India Estate. Negroes were obliged to carry manure in baskets on their heads to a plantation perhaps to a distance of a mile or more. Would not such practice be laughed at in England when a single mule and cart would have done three times the work?." The letter continues with various arguments to prove that the economic troubles of the West Indian plantations were the result of mismanagement and not the freed slaves. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Slave States of America

      London and Paris: Fisher, Son, & Co., 1842. - 2 volumes. 8vo, (9 x 5 ¾ inches). 4-page list of Subscribers and Reviews in volume one, 8-page publisher's Advertisement in volume 2. Engraved frontispieces in each volume, 6 engraved plates (some spotting and staining). Original publisher's brown blind-stamped cloth, spine gilt, UNOPENED (spine of volume one split but holding, some staining to both volumes, a bit worn). First edition. Buckingham travelled extensively from a very early age, and was a voluminous writer, supporting himself on his travels, including those described in his "Slave States of America," by giving public lectures describing his travels in the east while touring: "He published numerous books on his foreign travels-which are especially notable for the information they provide about social conditions in the many countries he visited-and wrote a large number of pamphlets on social and political subjects. He was probably best known, however, as a lecturer, undertaking speaking tours in both Britain and North America. His enthusiasm for campaigns of reform was unrestrained; in his own words, he could 'never find anything in a defective state without feeling an instinctive desire to improve it'. The sheer variety of his undertakings was not perhaps well calculated to ensure him immediate success in any one of them individually; indeed, his many critics judged him capricious and shallow. His seemingly eclectic political creed has puzzled historians as much as it infuriated his opponents. In sum, the remarkable range of his travels, the diversity of his interests, and the extent of his writings testify to a life of energy if not of achievement" (G. F. R. Barker, rev. Felix Driver for DNB). Greatly concerned with the welfare of the enslaved in America, Buckingham does not shrink from expressing his often controversial opinion: "In the same spirit of impartiality, I have endeavoured to describe the state of Slavery in the Southern States, of which these volumes will contain a full account. I shall perhaps be blamed by some English readers for the admissions which I make, if not in favour, at least in palliation, of the conduct of many slaveholders in America, as well as in the confessions which truth demands, of the well-being, and even comfort, of some of the domestic slaves. On the other hand, I expect my full share of censure from a large section, at least, of the people of America, for daring to speak, as truth compels me to do, of the wretched condition of the great body of the African race throughout the South; and of the reckless indifference to human life, and human obligations of every kind, which the very system of Slavery engenders in nearly all the white population who live beneath its influence. To the censures of both these parties I shall be willing to submit, and console myself with the belief that I have served the cause of truth and justice, better than by attempting to please either" (Preface). The modern world had never seen such a vast and powerful slave society as existed in antebellum America: "the fundamental tragedy of this time, this era of revolutions in politics, transportation, and reform was also a period when an empire for slavery extended across a quarter of the new nation. Slavery, propelled by the same territorial expansion and technological innovation that drove so much else in the new country, spread like a hemorrhage. Over 300,000 slaveowners held nearly 4 million people in bondage by 1860. Slavery, contrary to the expectations of virtually everyone in 1815, grew stronger with each passing decade, embracing an ever larger part of the continent to the South and West, holding more people within its bonds, accounting for a larger share of the nation's exports. Cotton and slavery created a per capita income for white southerners higher than that of any country in Europe except England. "The discussions in the churches, the reform organizations, and the political parties turned repeatedly, if fitfully and sometimes obliquely, to th [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        2 eigenh. Briefe mit U. bzw. Paraphe.

      Calw und Möllingen, 1829 und 1842. - Zusammen (1+1=) 2 SS. auf 2 Bll. 4to und 8vo. Ein Brief mit eh. Adresse. An den Theologen Leonhard Heubner (1780–1853) in Wittenberg, dem er zwei Studenten anempfiehlt, die bald auf dem Weg nach Berlin wären und auf dem Weg dorthin an Wittenberg vorbeikämen (Br. v. 3. April 1829), und über eine geplante Reise: „[.] Nun hat [.] in der letzten Woche die Arbeit so ausgegeben, daß ich bereits beim J. 1734 angekommen bin und hoffen darf, im Laufe der angetretenen Woche, wenn nichts besonderes (Besuche u. dgl.) dazwischenkommt, fertig zu werden. Ich schlage Dir nun vor, daß Du am Mittwoch d. 22. d. hieherkommst (der Omnibus geht täglich Morgens 6 Uhr in Stuttgart ab u. kommt um 12 Uhr hier an). Am Donnerstag früh würden wir dann nach Carlsruhe reisen, von dort mit dem Dampfschiff, wenn’s trifft, was ich nicht weiß, oder mit dem Eilwagen weiter nach Straßburg, und am Freitag auf der Eisenbahn nach Basel. Der Umweg über hier beträgt von Stuttgart aus gerechnet nur 2 Stunden [.]" (Br. v. 12. Juni 1842). – Von Heinrich Jung-Stilling ermuntert, studierte C. G. Barth in Tübingen Theologie, wurde Vikar in Neckarweihingen, Pfarrverweser in Dornhan und Effringen, und schließlich Pfarrer in Möttlingen bei Calw. „Dort erschien 1828 seine erste Erzählung ‚Der arme Heinrich’. 1833 legte Barth sein Pfarramt nieder und gründete den Calwer Verlagsverein, der in der Folgezeit christliche Kinder- und Schulbücher, Jugendblätter und Schriften zur Förderung der äußeren und inneren Mission herausgab. Barth vertrieb auch Missionsblätter und nahm an Missionstagungen teil. Neben zahlreichen Jugendbüchern schrieb er u. a. ‚Zweymal zwey und fünfzig biblische Geschichten für Schulen und Familien’ (1832,), eine ‚Christliche Kirchengeschichte’ (1835) und eine ‚Geschichte Württembergs’ (1842). Mit Hilfe seiner weltweiten Missionsverbindungen trug Barth eine große völkerkundliche Sammlung zusammen, die später in die Naturalienkabinette von München und Stuttgart gelangte" (DBE). – Der Brief v. 3. April 1829 mit zwei kleinen Ausrissen durch Siegelbruch (geringf. Buchstabenverlust). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Ornithologie Canarienne.

      Paris, [1842]. - 4to., (13 5/8 x 11 inches). (A bit spotted throughout). 4 fine engraved plates after Traviés with original hand color (browned). Contemporary brown pasteboard (rebacked, a bit worn). Provenance: With manuscript ownership inscription (dated 1912), bookplate, and manuscript notes of British ornithologist David Bannerman (1886-1979). With ink stamp of "P. Friedlander & Sohn, Berlin" to front pastedown. With contemporary manuscript ownership inscription of German physician and ornithologist Gustav Hartlaub (1814-1900). Volume 2 only of 9. First edition. The ornithological section from "Historie naturelle des Iles Canaries," vol. 2 Zoology. The beautifully hand-colored engravings are after Traviés and include: Fringilla Teydea, nob.; Fringilla Canaria; Columba laurivora Nob.; and Fringilla Tintillon, nob. / Procellaria Columbina, nob. Philip Barker-Webb was an English botanist who collected plants in Italy, Spain, and Portugal, and was the first person to collect in the Tetuan Mountains of Morocco. On his way to Brazil, he made what was supposed to be a brief visit to the Canary Islands, but ended up staying for a considerable amount of time and returned after his Brazil expedition. He published his results in the nine-volume "L'Histoire Naturelle des Iles Canaries," of which the present book is one volume, which took 20 years to complete. Sabin Berthelot, a French naturalist and ethnologist who lived part of his life in the Canary Islands, co-authored this work. The third author, Alfred Moquin-Tandon, was a French naturalist and doctor. Over the course of his career he was professor of zoology at Marseille, professor of botany at Toulouse, studied the plants of the island of Corsica, and served as director of the Jardin des Plantes and the Academie des Sciences in Paris. Edouard Travies (1809-1865), was a great ornithological illustrator. Travies' artistry represents a pinnacle in French ornithological illustration. Natural history, as a descriptive pursuit bent on identifying new species, demanded detailed illustrations. The minute precision of Traviès' work places him with the best of France's scientific artists. Traviès was born in Doullens, in the Somme district of France, in March 1809, the younger brother of the caricaturist Charles Joseph Traviès de Villier (1804-1859). Throughout his career he concentrated on natural history subjects, both in watercolor (he exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon between 1831 and 1866) and lithography. Unlike a number of his contemporaries, he was an artist both with the brush and on stone. Traviès' original watercolors were reproduced as both engravings and lithographs, which are considered among the best portraits of birds ever painted. The artist rendered the backgrounds fully, incorporating foliage, flowers, butterflies, as well as the birds themselves, all with considerable charm.

        Lettera autografa firmata a Jean-Gabriel Falampin.

      S.d. ma 1842-43, - 1 pagina in-8 su carta con iniziali ''GS'' impresse a secco, indirizzo ''Monsieur G. Falempin, rue d'Autin 14'', sigilli parzialmente conservati. Lettera in cui la scrittrice gli dice che dovrà confrontarsi con i suoi editori per capire se ''la promesse que je vous ai faite leur porte prejudice ou les contraire''. Dice che però che la parte che le sembra più difficile ''sera de vous satisfaire en temps et lieu car j'en ai encore pour longtemps avant de finir Conuelo, et je ne pourrais faire deux choses à la fois''. Consuelo è un romanzo pubblicato a puntate fra il 1842 e il 1843 e questo permette di collocare la missiva intorno a quegli anni. Falampin fu uno dei fondatori de ''L'Illustration'' e uomo d'affari George Sand tra 1841-1852, anche se la irritò spesso per la sua negligenza e lentezza nel rispondere. Buon esemplare.

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen.

        Sketches in Afghaunistan [Afghanistan]

      London: Henry Graves & Company; J.W. Allen & Co.; and Day & Haghe 1842 - London: Henry Graves & Company; J.W. Allen & Co.; and Day & Haghe, 1842, First Edition. Large folio – 55.2 × 38.6 cm. Publisher’s green morocco-backed green moiré boards, gilt title on the front board and morocco spine, blind stamped ruling and double-gilt ruling on covers, cream endpapers, re-backed with strengthened gutters, some foxing as usual, but a very good copy indeed. Spine shows rubbing and wear but complete, original covers worn at extremities. Single-tint lithographic title page and 25 similar highly detailed plates, lithographic dedication leaf, letter press leaf of descriptions printed in blue in double column - all original guard-sheets in place. One of the finest illustrated books on Afghanistan, the plates depicting a selection of superb views on the march - Bolan Pass, Quetta, Khojak Pass, Kandahar, and Kabul. James Atkinson, (1780-1852), a surgeon in the Bengal service, was chosen as Superintending Surgeon to the Army of the Indus during the First Afghan War. He was "relieved in the ordinary course of routine shortly after the surrender of Dost Mohammad" and returned to Bengal in 1841 "and thus escaped the fate which awaited the army of occupation". Atkinson retired in 1847, and died in London in 1852. He is perhaps best remembered for his translations from Persian, of these his selections from the Shâh Nâmeh of Firdausi being the most notable, but he evidently possessed considerable artistic abilities. The renderings are skillfully composed, detailed and sensitively colored. Abbey Travel 508; Colas 173; Lipperheide 1493; Tooley 73. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        "Vue af Lerdals badinrättning. Aug. 1849."

      Blyerts och lavyr. 18,5 x 28,8 cm. Osignerad. Monterad på ett större blad. Stäck vistades utomlands för studier 1842-1848 och blev efter hemkomsten varmt mottagen i konstlivet och erkänd som en av landets främsta landskapsmålare. Föryngring präglade Konstakademien, där Stäck genast invaldes. Från sina år i Italien, Frankrike och Tyskland medförde han "färska intryck och fyllda skissböcker" (Serner), och under de närmaste åren utvecklade han en rik och fullödig produktion. Det är ofta ett rent och atmosfärrikt landskapsmåleri. Serner uppmärksammar att Stäck avvek från "samtidens alltmer novellistiska smak" genom att avstå från att befolka sina scener med personstaffage, kreatur och bondforor.. Under 1840-talet inrättades en rad vattenkuranstalter i Sverige, inte att förväxla med de hälsobrunnar som funnits tidigare på många håll. Hälsobrunnarnas verksamhet kretsade kring drickandet av källvatten. Kallvattenkuranstalterna erbjöd däremot en ny form av utvärtes vattenbehandling som lanserats av Vincenz Priessnitz i Gräfenberg i nuvarande Tjeckien på 1830-talet, och som fick sitt genombrott i Sverige vid hälsobrunnen i Söderköping 1842. Lerdals badinrättning i Rättvik togs i drift 1848 av läkaren och nykterhetsvännen Carl Johan Wettergren, och var i stor utsträckning avsedd för ortens obemedlade. Denna intressanta lavering av Stäck är utförd under hans dalaresa följande år, som även efterlämnat skisser från Leksand (9 augusti), Rättvik och Älvdalen (4 september). Samma sommar som Stäck avbildade platsen besöktes badet av självaste H. C. Andersen, som skildrade livet på kuranstalten i sin bok I Sverige (1851): "Den är bekvämt och bra inredd, med trevliga rum, läsesal och badkamrar. Därinne kan du få se dalamumier, - livslevande, frisktblomstrande, rödkindade män, insvepta i filtar, blott huvudet är fritt; det är badgästerna som nyss är komna opp ur kallbadet. Vattenkuranstalten i Rättvik är precis lik den i Gräfenberg i Schlesien. På bordet i läsesalongen ligger böcker och tidningar; här får du på nytt fatt i trådarna till den brusande, oroliga världen, tvärs igenom det tryckta ordets elektromagnetiska ström förnimmer du vad som rör sig och sker därute, och hastar åter till naturen, till solskenet, björkdoften vid Siljans klara sjö". Badinrättningen i Lerdal hade sin storhetstid omkring 1850 men blev kortlivad. Under Krimkriget kommenderades doktor Wettergren till Stockholm, och Lerdalsinrättningen var redan då mer eller mindre nedlagd i brist på medel från länets styrelse. År 1857 hade all verksamhet upphört. Den enda idag kvarvarande resten av anläggningen är en brunnspaviljong kallad "Hvilan" (Carl-Henrik Berg, Oknytt, 1-2 2004)
