        Sih-Chidä & Mahchsi-Karehde. Mandan Indians

      Paris, Coblenz and London 1842 - Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Hürlimann after Bodmer, blindstamp. 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.

        Sketches in Afghaunistan

      London: Henry Graves & Company; J.W. Allen & Co.; and Day & Haghe,, 1842. Large folio (540 × 367 mm) Original green morocco-backed green moiré boards, title gilt to the spine and upper board, French fillet in blind and double gilt rule, thick and thin at the spine edges, cream endpapers. Single-tint lithographic title page, and 25 similar plates, lithographic dedication leaf, and letterpress leaf of descriptions, printed in blue in double column. All original guard-sheets in place. Just a little rubbed, almost imperceptibly recased where shaken loose from the gutta-percha, some foxing as usual, but a very good copy indeed. First edition. Without doubt 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, attracted Lord Minto's attention for his linguistic skills and was "given the appointment of assistant assay master at the mint, which he retained until 1828. In 1818 he also filled the deputy chair of Persian in Fort William College … In addition to his appointment at the mint, he held the post of superintendent of the Government Gazette from 1817 to 1828. When the official connection of the government with that journal was discontinued in 1823, the proprietors, in view of his previous success, invited Atkinson to take sole charge of both the Gazette and the Press" (DNB). In 1833, after a furlough in England, he returned to his original profession as surgeon to the 55th NI, and in 1838 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, if amateur, artistic abilities. The highly detailed, yet skilfully composed and sensitively coloured, originals for these plates, 16 of which are now in the British Museum, show clearly that the lithographer, probably Louis Haghe, had little "working up" or "improving" to do, to create highly attractive and effective images. This work is often encountered loose, ragged and heavily foxed, this is a really superior copy, largely clean and bright, carefully restored. Elaborate armorial bookplate of Hugh, 2nd Duke of Westminster to the front pastedown.

        Two broadsides concerning the resignation of leniente coronel Pedro Pena]. Vindicacion [with] Al Publico

      Impr. de los Herederos de J.A. Calvo, Cartajena 1842 - 1 leaf each. Pedro Antonio de la Pena (1805-1861) was a native of Popayán from an illustrious family, appointed Military Commander of Ocaña Canton in 1831, and in 1840 was appointed governor of Ocaña and Mompós during the Guerra de los Supremos (1839-1842). Despite his exemplary behavior in support of the government, he was accused of sympathy for the rebel forces. The first document, 'Vindicacion', composed at Mompos [Santa Cruz de Mompox] 31 de Marzo de 1842, published 7 de Abril, and signed in print Enos Patriotas, refers to the government's orders and refutes the claims that he joined the Federal (rebellious) forces. The second document, 'Al Publico', was composed at Mompos 25 de Junio 1842, published 5 de Julio, and signed Sus Amigos. It was mailed from Ocana, as noted on the reverse; in it Pena is praised highly. In 1846 Pena went on to serve as commander of Battalion 7, and in 1848, with the concurrence of the Senate, was promoted to full Colonel. See Manuel Ezequiel Corrales: Efemérides y anales del Estado de Bolívar (Bogata: 1899), T. III). Extremely rare. No other known copies of either document. Very good copies with some wear, small inked number at top margin. 'Al Publico' with folds, wax seal, and tear opposite; 'Vindicacion' removed from larger volume with one or two stitch holes, some dampstaining at fore margin just affecting a few words.

        Objections to the project of His Excellency Sir George Gipps, for raising a Loan to be secured on the ordinary Revenue of the Colony; submitted by His Excellency to the Legislative Council of New South Wales, 1841

      James Tegg, George Street, Sydney 1842 - Octavo, 20 pp.; a very good copy in plain brown wrappers. Scarce attack on Gipps: the final ten pages comprise a protest regarding the New South Wales Legislative Council signed by both John Jamison and John Blaxland. Having unsuccessfully sought English aid in cancelling immigration orders after the expensive rush of bounty immigrants, and after being severely censured for issuing orders in excess of land revenue, Gipps submitted a plan to the Local Legislature 'for raising by Debentures the sum of £200,000, to be secured on, and paid out of the Ordinary Revenue of the Colony, if not satisfied within three years, out of the Land Fund, and bearing interest not exceeding the rate of six per cent. per annum, payable out of the Ordinary Revenue of the Colony?'. This pamphlet sets out the objections to the plan, which was not accepted. Gipps was then forced to draw on the military chest, and when that was exhausted, withdrew government deposits from the banks to meet the deficits already incurred for bounty payments. When all these measures proved inadequate, he finally borrowed £50,000 in debentures, "a daring innovation" (ADB). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia—Volume III (only)

      1842. ROBERTS, David.The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt, & Nubia… Volume 3.London: F.G. Moon, 1849.First edition of Volume III (Idumea) of one of the greatest lithographic works ever printed, complete with lithographed title page and 34 (of 36) beautiful tinted lithographic plates in excellent condition featuring the fabulous ruins at Petra, the Convent of St. Catherine at Mount Sinai, Mount Horeb and Suez, all finely hand-colored. Very handsomely bound in contemporary morocco-gilt by Riviere.The mysteries of Egypt and the Middle East were first revealed to inquiring Western minds through David Roberts' folio-sized Holy Land and his subsequent Egypt & Nubia. Originally issued in three volumes from 1842 to 1849, the monumental Holy Land contained 123 tinted lithographs produced from Roberts' magnificent on-site drawings of temples, land- and cityscapes, and other sights throughout the Holy Land. Roberts was the first Westerner to be granted permission to enter whichever sacred mosque or monument he desired, and his images of these holy places established what many people even today envision as the aura of Egypt and the Holy Land. He departed on his 11-month journey in August 1838, initially traveling to Alexandria. In February 1839, he set out for the Holy Land, stopping on the way at Suez, Mount Sinai, and Petra. He then visited Gaza and Jerusalem and spent the remaining months of his journey visiting biblical sites. "Roberts' Holy Land has a worldwide reputation; nothing of a similar character has ever been produced that can bear a comparison with it" (Ran, 6). "These prints are of excellence unsurpassed in Europe… The firm of Day and Haghe raised lithography to perhaps the highest point it ever attained" (Abbey).See Abbey Travel 385; Tooley 401.Plates and text fine, hand-coloring vivid and skillfully executed. Handsome Riviere morocco-gilt binding lightly rubbed at extremities, with a bit of discoloration to the front cloth cover. An excellent copy of this lovely illustrated folio.

        Trio [No. 3 in A major] for Piano, Violin and Violoncello. Op. 124. Autograph musical manuscript full score

      2 pp. Oblong folio. The first 27 bars of the Scherzo on one page and the final 7 bars of the Andante on the other. With a sketch of the opening 5 bars of the violin part to the Scherzo at the conclusion of the second movement. Headed in another hand: "Manuscript von Louis Spohr. Bruchstück aus dem dritten Trio für Piano, Violine und Cello componiert 1842." Somewhat browned, a bit heavier to edges and folds; creased and very slightly abriaded along folds; several small edge tears and very small holes, just touching notation. . Göthel locates autograph manuscripts of sections of this work in Kassel and Braunschweig. The first edition was published in 1843 by Schuberth. Spohr, a friend and contemporary of Beethoven and Weber, was a successful composer, conductor and violinist. He held various notable posts, including that of Kapellmeister in Kassel. His works were performed extensively throughout Europe and he was second only to Mendelssohn in popularity in England. His method for violin is still highly regarded and his chamber music remains very much a part of the standard repertoire. Spohr was "regarded by many contemporaries as worthy of a place beside Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven in the pantheon of the greatest composers... Mozart's Figaro and Wagner's Tristan were both composed during [his] 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..." "... In 1836 Spohr married Carl Pfeiffer's 28-year-old sister Marianne, a gifted amateur pianist who stimulated him to compose a series of chamber works with piano, for which he had written little up to that time; these included the three duos concertants for violin and piano (1836?-7), the five piano trios (1841?-9), the Piano Quintet (1845) and the Septet (1853)."

Verso: Bleistiftskizze einer südlichen Landschaft. - Mit einigen kleinen Braunflecken. Während des Italienaufenthaltes von 1842/45 entstandene Studie vor der Natur.. Nach erstem Unterricht 1829-1834 bei seinem Vater, dem Landschafts- und Dekorationsmaler Ludwig Pose (geb. 1786), besuchte Eduard Wilhelm 1830 die Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie und war seit 1832 Schüler des Landschafts- und Historienmalers Carl Friedrich Lessing (1808-1880) und seit 1832 des Landschaftsmalers Johann Wilhelm Schirmer (1807-1863). Von Düsseldorf aus unternahm er zahlreiche Wanderungen in die nähere Umgebung, um die Natur vor Ort zu studieren. Zusammen mit Andreas Achenbach (1815-1910) wechselte er 1836 nach München und nahm dort Verbindung zu Carl Rottmann (1797-1850) auf, dessen Mitarbeiter er an dem gerade begonnenen Zyklus griechischer Landschaften wurde. Vorübergehend ging er, wegen der in München ausbrechenden Cholera, nach Frankfurt am Main. Er unternahm Studienreisen ins Salzburger Land, 1838 nach Tirol, 1839 nach Paris und Brüssel. Zwischen 1838 und 1842 lebte er überwiegend in Düsseldorf. 1842 reiste er nach Rom. Von hier aus unternahm er zahlreiche Wanderungen nach Unteritalien und Sizilien. Nach seiner Rückkehr 1845 ließ er sich endgültig in Frankfurt am Main nieder und reiste 1849 nochmals nach Italien, nach Florenz. In seinen späteren Jahren gehörte er dem in Kronberg im Taunus aktiven Malerkreis an.

        Interior of the Hut of a Mandan Chief

      Paris, Coblentz and London, 1842. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Desmadryl after Bodmer. As well as being a beautifully composed view of the interior of this Mandan lodge, this is also one of the most ethnographically important of all Bodmer's images. An outstanding example of his careful rendering of every detail of the everyday life of the Mandan Tribe. The lodge was the home of Dipäuch, a respected elder of the Tribe, who gave Prince Maximilian much information about the history and beliefs of his people. The sketch was made over a period of several months at Mih-Tutta-Hand-Kusch from early December 1833 to mid-April 1834. This image has been much reproduced since as perhaps the most accurate extant depiction, taken from life, of the domestic arrangements of the Plains Indians. 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 was to become virtually lost cultures.
