        Group of 15 documents (see below for details).

      Various publishers, 1842. The culture and politics of central Mexico in the 19th century often did not coincide with those of the Yucatan, especially after the dissolution of the constitution of the First Empire. The long-smoldering discontent that the post-Empire constitutions engendered reached the breaking point for the Yucatecans in March of 1841 and on the 16th of that month => the peninsula declared its independence from the rest of Mexico. The Yucatecans were perhaps encouraged by the Tejanos and their successful separation from Mexico in 1836. The four manuscript documents, two broadsides, and nine newspapers in this collection date from the period of the first Mexican invasion of the peninsula and the central government's failed attempt to quell what it saw as a rebellion -- an invasion that was not repelled until April, 1843. Included here are: 1) A pair of letters dated Merida 17 and 24 January 1843, from Juan de Regil to Mauricio de Santelices of Havana regarding the political situation. 2) A printed broadside proclamation by President Miguel Barbachano (Mérida, 2 December 1842), imposing a heavy tax on and forced loans from the nation's industrialists, merchants, and professionals. 3) A manuscript extract from a letter (Merida, 21 December 1842) from an unknown Spanish national to Santelices, requesting assistance in leaving Yucatan due to the oppressive new tax, but also giving first-hand information about => military operations. 4) An Autograph Letter Signed, Campeche, 17 February 1843, from Geronimo Ferrer y Valls (Spanish commercial agent in Yucatan) to the Captain General of Cuba in Havana, expressing concern for the safety of Spanish nationals in the Yucatan and containing details of => murders and summary military executions. 5) A printed broadside entitled Opinion General, Verdaderas ideas y convicciones de las secciones del ejército del Estado acampadas extramuros de esta Ciudad (Campeche: José M. Peralta, 1843). And, 6) Nine issues of the Boletin del Espiritu del Siglo dated January to June 1843, most with => excellent content on Yucatecan resistance to the invasion by Mexico. The Boletin del Espiritu del Siglo (published in Campeche by Jose Maria Peralta) is quite scarce, with only Yale reporting ownership of a very good but incomplete run. Present here are issues from 1843: 43 (7 January), 46 (13 January), 48 (15 January), 52 (19 January), 53 (20 January), 63 (30 January), 144 (22 April), 148 (26 April), and 189 (6 June). => Primary source material on the Republic of the Yucatan is rare.

        View of Bethlehem (Pennsylvania)

      Paris, Coblenz and London, 1842. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Lucas Weber after Bodmer, blindstamp. Provenance: Donaldson, Lufkin &Jenrette Americana CollectionA pastoral landscape scene of great serenity: the wheat has been cut and the stubble has yet to be ploughed in, the farming community takes a momentary rest from their labours. Another harvest safely gathered in. In the early-morning sun few people are around as Bodmer completes his sketch. After a day long journey Bodmer and Prince Maximilian had arrived on the evening of July 25 1832 at Bethlehem, a settlement of Moravians established in 1740 on the Lehigh River. Whilst the Prince toured the district with a German physician, Lewis Saynisch, Bodmer occupied himself by sketching the town and the surrounding countryside. This is the view from one of the highest points in Bethlehem, The buildings in the view still stand.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.Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1.

Zwei ausserordentlich große Vorstellungen von bewunderungswürdigen Fertigkeits-Uebungen, in Kunstreiten, Voltigiren, Seiltänzen mit und ohne Balancirstange, künstlichen Wendungen und höchst komischen Scenen durch Affen und Hunde auszuführen. (Unterzeichner:) Heinrich Schreyer.

      (München), 26. und 27. Juli 1842. - Einblattdruck mit gr. Holzschnitt (17 x 36 cm). Blattgr.: 56 x 39 cm. Wurzbach XXXI, 305: "Heinrich Schreyer, Menageriebesitzer und Thierhändler, war aus Lemberg in Galizien gebürtig (geb. 1793, gest. zu Wien 22. August 1847). Im Sommer 1847 kam er nach Wien, wo er im Prater das große Affentheater erbaute, welches er im Juni d. J. eröffnete. Der Zulauf zu dieser Sehenswürdigkeit - die Dressur der Hunde und Affen war psychologisch merkwürdig - war ein ungeheurer. In wenigen Wochen hatte S. einen Gewinn von über 20.000 fl. erzielt. Aber mit diesem Glücke seines Unternehmens schritt das Unglück in seiner Familie Hand in Hand. Kaum in Wien angekommen, erkrankten Frau und Kinder am Typhus. Kaum waren aber diese genesen, wurde er selbst von der Seuche hingerafft. Das Theater führte nun die Witwe fort. Später übernahm das Ganze Casanova, der in Schreyer’s Diensten gestanden und der nun einige Zeit noch in Wien Vorstellungen gab. Im Jahre 1861 brachte der damalige Volkssänger Fürst die Bude käuflich an sich, gestaltete sie um und eröffnete sie am 21. April 1862 als Singspielhalle, aus welcher das Volkstheater im Prater und zuletzt das „Fürst-Theater" sich entwickelte. Anregend im Hinblick auf Abrichtung der Thiere, wirkte die Schreyer’sche Affenbude auf die Bevölkerung ganz anders, wie der Cancan der Fürst’schen Bühne! Noch sei bemerkt, daß Schreyer während seines kurzen Aufenthaltes in Wien im Jahre 1847 dem im genannten Jahre errichteten Affenhause in der Schönbrunner Menagerie die erste Affenbevölkerung lieferte."

        The Constitution of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, as Adopted by the Convention, Assembled at Newport, September 1842; bound together with A Discourse Delivered Before the Rhode-Island Historical Society, on the Evening of Wednesday, January 13, 1847 By Hon. Job Durfee

      Providence, 1842. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. SCARCE. The first document is the text of the newly adopted state constitution, the state's first. From 1663 until 1842, the state was governed under the original charter granted to it by King Charles II. After rancorous debate in 1841-1842 over universal suffrage, which included the brief Dorr rebellion, the Freeman's Constitution was passed by the electorate. Both documents are in very good condition save for some occasional light foxing and aging to pages, and a 3 inch tear to the margin of the last page of the first one, not affecting the text. The second document is a discourse delivered in 1847 by Job Durfee, the Chief Justice of Rhode Island and a prominent figure in the state's government and politics. In this discourse the Judge provides a proud history of the state and praises it "extravagantly." Along with the discourse, the document appends a poem by Providence writer Sarah Helen Whitman that was recited to the Society before the Judge's discourse. Whitman is now perhaps best known for having been romantically involved with Edgar Allan Poe during the couple of years before his death. Their relationship developed after having composed poems to each other. The two documents are bound in a very good red leather binding with gilt ruling along edges and gilt titles to front cover. The front hinge is cracked, and there are light ink marks along the gutter between the first and second documents. 24 pages; 42 pages plus 5 pages AMHIST/072808.

        View of Bethlehem (Pennsylvania)

      Paris, Coblenz and London 1842 - Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Lucas Weber after Bodmer, blindstamp. Provenance: Donaldson, Lufkin &Jenrette Americana Collection A pastoral landscape scene of great serenity: the wheat has been cut and the stubble has yet to be ploughed in, the farming community takes a momentary rest from their labours. Another harvest safely gathered in. In the early-morning sun few people are around as Bodmer completes his sketch. After a day long journey Bodmer and Prince Maximilian had arrived on the evening of July 25 1832 at Bethlehem, a settlement of Moravians established in 1740 on the Lehigh River. Whilst the Prince toured the district with a German physician, Lewis Saynisch, Bodmer occupied himself by sketching the town and the surrounding countryside. This is the view from one of the highest points in Bethlehem, The buildings in the view still stand. 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. Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1.

First Edition, second issue of the second version (thematic incipit no. 10 with 10 measures and with multiple prices to title). Rongoni p. 458, no. 8. "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. The revised Stabat mater was ready by the end of 1841. The first performance, arranged by the brothers Léon and Marie Escudier, was in Paris at the Théâtre Italien on 7 January 1842. It was received with enormous enthusiasm. The first Italian performance, at Bologna, followed in March under the direction of Donizetti." Philip Gossett in Grove Music Online.

        Hilly Hong Kong.

      Hong Kong.: Kelly & Walsh.. No date. (circa1928).. Very attractive view booklet showing Hong Kong at the turn of the 20th century illustrated with collotypes and photogravures - 3 fold out panoramas - 'From the Harbour"; "Victoria"; "Repulse Bay", 12 full page images and 2 leaves with several images. Original wrappers with oval cut out upper cover. A little light browning first image, very light wear edges of covers. A very good copy of a scarce photo book. The title of this scarce photo book holds out hopes of cool breezes in the tropics of Hong Kong. This is one of several such booklets extolling the virtues of Hong Kong. Produced to inform (or perhaps entice) people coming to appointments in what was a British Crown Colony from 1842 until 1997. The standard appointment was for a period of two years, with first-class travel both ways, preferably in posh accommodation (Port Out, Starboard Home), which meant that in the gruelling conditions of the Red Sea, one travelled on the cooler side of the ship in the heat of the afternoon. Three panoramas show Hong Kong as a thriving city with fine Edwardian buildings built on its waterfront or praya. These had been built on a large reclamation completed in 1904 second panorama shows the view of Hong Kong harbour filled with British shipping. The third shows Repulse Bay, with a recently completed resort hotel above a pleasant beach. Clearly this was a nice place to work and relax. Further encouragement is given in a view of the mansions of the Peak, high above the harbour. Resident here were the taipans, the senior executives of British companies. Houses like this would have been familiar to people from British India, accustomed to the hill stations of Simla or Darjeeling. Other photographs show further symbols of Britishness: the Cenotaph, the Supreme Court and Happy Valley Racecourse. Later photographs show elements of Chinese life in busy Queen’s Road and in what, to English eyes, would be quaint, a steep street lined with Chinese shops. The album is undated but on the Kowloon side of the harbour, the waterfront is dominated by the Peninsula Hotel, opened in 1928. (Dr Stuart Braga). .

        The Inland Navigation, Railroads, Geology and Minerals of England & Wales

      J. Arrowsmith, London 1842 - This beautifully color-coded and robustly labeled map describes the geology of the British Isles. The colors indicate particular rock materials in accordance with a key at top right of the map, and symbols designate mineralogical deposits. In addition to geological information, the index also includes major cities, rivers, canals, mail coach roads, and railroads. Graphs on the left side depict lines of navigation throughout the area. This map is from Arrowsmith's "London atlas of universal geography" and is in good condition with vivid colors. Some wear and staining in margins not affecting the image. Wear to original center fold. John Arrowsmith (1790-1873) was from a family of London based cartographers and publishers, and was a founding member of the Royal Geographical Society. His "London Atlas," known for its understated elegance, is considered one of the first truly "modern" atlases of the nineteenth century. This finely colored map is a lovely example of his work. Map. Engraving with original hand-coloring. Image measures 24 1/2 x 19 1/2".

        Encampment of the Travellers on the Missouri

      Paris, Coblentz and London 1842 - Aquatint engraving by Outhwaite after Bodmer, proof on india paper. Light spotting, discreet ink collector's stamp on verso. A rare India proof, apparently removed from its mount at an early date. During the traveller's journey back down the Missouri River from Fort Union to Fort Clark (30 October to 8 November 1833) they were forced to occasionally bivouac on the bank side. Here as night falls the majority of the party is gathered round the fire, both for warmth and in anticipation of a hot meal: pipes are smoked and the day's events discussed. One of the party makes some final adjustments to the coverings for the cargo, whilst a single man stands watch out over the river. 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.

        Meklenburg in Bildern Redigirt und Mit Erlaeuterndem Texte Begleitet

      J. G. Tiedemann'schen Hof-Steindruckerei, Rostock 1842 - 8vo. 20 by 14 cm. [4], 68 pp. With 24 hand-colored plates, mostly views of Meklenburg's cities and their buildings, squares, monuments, parks, surroundings, but also a few costume plates. This would appear to be the first volume of four in a series, although this volume works as a standalone work, as there is no indication of volume number. Copies of this work were also issued without color. The coloring here greatly enhances the illustrations, especially because it is so finely done. The plates are of modest size yet very detailed, and so the coloring was executed with great precision. The book has scattered foxing, more frequent on the text pages but also affecting the plate margins at times. Soiling on the cover. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
