A German emigrant diary in America - - BARDENWERPER, Johann Theodor Friedrich Hermann (1820-1887)
Philadelphia 1842. Halbleder-Einbände -- 198 x 163 mm; 148 x 100 mm -- 43, 89; 133 handschriftliche Seiten -- Contemporary American quarter-leather bindings. 43, 89; 133 handwritten pages. Both volumes contain an important eyewitness account from a German emigrant about his emigration and his stay in North America in the years 1839 and 1842. The author, Hermann Bardenwerper (1820-1887), was the son of the businessman Johann Ludwig Bardenwerper from Braunschweig. He was born in 1820 and served an apprenticeship as a merchant. On August 4, 1839 he emigrated with the frigate "Pauline" to New York, where he arrived on September 16. It was merely the second trip of the frigate "Pauline" to America, which was especially built as an emigrant ship in 1838. On this journey, "Pauline" had 177 passengers. Hermann Bardenwerper was one of 9 cabin passengers, while the other 168 passengers were on the steam deck. Bardenwerper found work in Philadelphia and stayed there for several years. The travel memories describe his trip on the frigate "Pauline" in detail (39 pages) and, further, his last voyage in North America in June-August 1842 (89 pages), when he travelled from Philadelphia to Washington, New York and Canada. The manuscript contains descriptions of the following cities and landmarks: Wilmington, Baltimore, Harpers Ferry, Rhode-Island, Boston, Lowell, Albany, Trenton Falls, Rochester, Buffalo, Indiana, Niagara Falls, Lewiston, Oswego, Sackets Harbour, Kingston, Thousand Islands, Montreal and Quebec. It includes lenghty descriptions of his stays in … [Click Below for Full Description]

QUAIN, Jones; WILSON, Erasmus (eds.)
Taylor and Watson, London, 1842. 103 p. 51 cm. 30 engraved plates. Rebacked and recornered in brown leather with original spine label and marbled paper boards. Bookplate on front pastedown for Arthur Bevan. Front hinge repaired internally. Some foxing and dampstains. Most noticeable dampstain is to inner margin of first plate but does not affect the illustration itself. Tear at bottom of plate 4. Irish anatomist Jones Quain (1796 – 1865) became professor of Anatomy and Physiology at the University of London while co-author Sir Erasmus Wilson (1809-1884) was a well-known surgeon. Superb lithographs by William Fairland, well known for anatomical subjects. The authors, in their plate descriptions, refer to William Cheselden (1688-1752), teacher of anatomy and surgery, who in 1733 published Osteographia or the Anatomy of Bones, the first full and accurate description of the anatomy of the human skeletal system. Includes index. It's tempting to speculate on the identity of the Arthur Bevan whose bookplate in on the front pastedown. Assuming the previous owner was a doctor, the book may have belonged to Dr. Arthur Dean Bevan (1861-1943), the doctor who removed the bullet from Teddy Roosevelt when an anarchist attempted to assasinate him in Milwaukee. Bevan was a noted surgeon at Presbyterian Hospital in Chicago and the inventor of the Bevan Button for stitching up an incision. However, the stag and Latin motto suggests a British origin.

George Robins
George Robins, 1842. Horace (Horatio) Walpole, 4th Earl of Orford, (1717-1797) son of the de facto first British Prime MInister Hugh Walpole, was an English politician, man of letters, author of the Gothic novel 'The Castle of Otranto' and renowned antiquarian. His home, Strawberry Hill House in Twickenham was a treasure house containing one of the most important collections of the 18th Century. The sale which began on April 25th, 1842, was projected to continue over 24 days, however the catalogue , prepared by the auctioneer George Robins, went through a number of alterations and revisions and is believed to have been issued in as many as 7 successive versions.In particular, a decision was made to sell a number of the prints, drawings and illustrated manuscripts at a separate sale, rather than on Days 6 and 7 as originally planned.Later copies omit Days 6 and 7. This copy contains the lots for days 6 and 7, and accords with Merritt's issue III.* The last lot on page 73 is numbered 29 in error, instead of 26; p.130 lacks the 'Miscellaneous" heading; the text on pages 186 and 187 is transposed, with the last lots on day 18 in place of the first lots on day 19 and vice versa. Page 68 blank. Quarto. pp.250. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Horace Walpole after Eckhardt. In original printed card covers rebacked in black cloth. With signature of John Bailey Langhorne, of Outwood Hall Wakefield(1816-1877), proprietor of the Newcastle Chronicle, who was appointed Master Extraordinary in the High Court of Chancery in 1840.

Bodmer, Karl
Coblenz, Paris, and London, 1842. Handcolored engraving, 10 x 13 1/2 inches; matted and framed to 14 x 19 inches. Clean and fresh, handsome modern color. Very good. A handsome view from Staten Island, captured by Swiss artist Karl Bodmer upon his arrival in New York harbor in the Fall of 1832. The plate shows the bay speckled with the sails of small boats, guarded by Fort Lafayette, with sweeping rain clouds in the distance. In the foreground, a couple stands by a small tree, taking in the view. This is plate XXXIII from Bodmer and Prince Maximilien's magnificent travels through the United States. Prince Maximilian was already an experienced naturalist and explorer in 1832, having made an important scientific expedition to Brazil in 1815-17. His preparations for his trip to North America including retaining the skilled artist, Karl Bodmer, to record illustrations of the journey. Arriving in the fall of 1832, the Prince ascended the Missouri River in the spring of 1833, going as far upstream as the American Fur Company post of Fort Mackenzie in present-day Montana, and spending the winter at Fort Clark, near the Mandan Indian villages. During this prolonged stay, he and Bodmer had ample opportunity to observe the Indian tribes of the Upper Missouri in their full glory, carefully recorded by Bodmer in watercolors. In the spring of 1834 they returned to Europe, and devoted the next five years to preparing the text and plates for this publication. ABBEY 615. GRAFF 4648. HOWES M443a, WAGNER-CAMP 76.

Unknown
Providence: 1842. 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. Very Good.

Tayler, William.
London: Thomas McLean, 26, Haymarket, 1842. Folio (21 1/2" x 14 3/4"), publisher's moiré fine-ribbed brown cloth boards, title in gilt on upper cover, recent brown morocco spine, contents loose as issued. Lithographed title, lithographed dedication, 6 six leaves of letterpress text, six hand colored lithographs heightened with gum arabic. A scarce, fascinating, and quite lovely British color-plate portfolio depicting the domestic life of an Anglo Indian couple, as well as native Bengalese genre scenes. The six plates are hand-colored lithographs by J. Bouvier of the General Lithographic Establishment, 70, Martin's Lane, after watercolors by Tayler. The plates are titled as follows: 1. The Young Civilian's Toilet, 2. The Young Lady's Toilet, 3. The Breakfast, 4. The Women Grinding at the Mill, 5. The Sunyasees, and 6. The Village Barber. In the first of these images a young Anglo man luxuriates in a tastefully appointed room after his bath. He is attended by no less than five servants: a young boy fans him with a hand-Punkah, the Sirdar-bearer brushes his hair, the Mate-bearer washes his feet, a Khansaman brings in a cup of coffee, and another servant holds up a mirror. Lying on the floor nearby is a bill with the name "W. Tayler" at the top followed by "Pittar and Lattey" and the word "jeweller." The text explains that "Messrs. Pittar and Lattey's bill for jewellry, which is seen on the floor, affords some ground for speculation as to his matrimonial intentions." It would appear that this and the subsequent two plates are autobiographical. William Tayler (1808-1892) arrived … [Click Below for Full Description]

The gilt-crest of "The Society of Writers to the Signet" at both panels.

Small unidentified label at the top of the front pastedown as well. The text is very clean, with no foxing or markings to speak of. And the wood-engravings, which appear thruout in the "Prefatory Remarks", are in pristine condition. A well-preserved, solidly VG to VG+ example.

Alley, George, (1792-1859)
1842. The Life, Travels, and Travails of a Mormon Convert from Nauvoo to "Winter Quarters" and the Salt Lake.33 letters, mainly quarto and folio, plus letter fragment, 91 manuscript pages, in very good legible condition, several letters separated along folds, some occasional loss of text, otherwise in very good condition. This collection is a historically significant correspondence which will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of the history of the Mormon Church, religion in America, and of the singular experience of the Mormons in the American West. The letters detail the experiences of a Mormon convert from the period of the persecutions in Nauvoo, life and conditions at "Winter Quarters" in present day Nebraska, and the early days of the Mormon settlement of Salt Lake City. These letters have never been published or utilized by any researcher or scholar. The collection consists of letters written by George Alley, a Mormon convert, to his brother, Joseph Alley, III, back home in their native Lynn, Massachusetts. The letters begin while Alley is on his way with his family to the Mormon settlement of Nauvoo, Illinois. George Alley, a shoemaker by trade, arrived in Nauvoo with his family at a time of great difficulty for both the Mormon Church and its founder, Joseph Smith. Alley details the tension experienced by the Mormon faithful as anti-Mormon feeling was whipped into the frenzy that led to the imprisonment and murders of Joseph and Hyrum Smith. In the spring of 1842 Smith told the Quorum of the Twelve and some prominent church l … [Click Below for Full Description]

Boston: Otis Clapp, 1842. Own a rare, unique piece of history from the American Spiritualist movement!!!!! Inscribed by the George Bush (a gift to his wife, Mary W. Bush), presidential ancestor and major figure in the history of American spiritualism! This George Bush was the great granduncle of George H. W. Bush and great, great granduncle of George W. Bush, the 41st and 43rd Presidents of the United States, and thus sometimes dubbed "George I." George Bush (1796-1859) was a prominent biblical scholar, preacher and controversialist. After graduation from Dartmouth in 1818 and study at Princeton Theological Seminary, Bush was ordained at the Salem Presbytery in Indiana (1825) and was appointed pastor of a church in Indianapolis. His religious views, described as 'liberal' or 'progressive,' rapidly came into conflict with those of his more conservative parishioners and in 1828, this conflict culminated in his termination, following a statement in which he disputed the scriptural authority of Presbyterian church government. From 1831 to 1847, Bush was Professor of Hebrew and Oriental Literature at New York University and pursued a prolific publishing career that established a strong scholarly reputation. His contributions include The Life of Mohammed (1830), A Grammar of the Hebrew Language (1835), an extensive series of commentaries on books of the Old Testament, and the highly controversial Anastasis: or, the doctrine of the resurrection of the Body, rationally and scripturally considered (1844), all showing the marks of Bush's encyclopedic knowledge and his highly rational … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

Brown cloth hardcovers with blank impressing. Ex library with ink stamps to front endpapers and text block edges, label residue on endpapers. Vol. I rebacked. Repaired hinges. Bookplates on front endpapers. Vol. I frontispiece dampstained and vol. II frontispiece foxed. Occasional thumbing. The Cornish-born traveller and writer James Silk Buckingham (1786-1855) campaigned energetically for social reform while a British Member of Parliament during the 1830s. He later spent four years in the United States, and in 1839 travelled across the Carolinas, Virginia, Georgia, and Alabama to observe at first hand the inhumane treatment of slaves in a system that showed "reckless indifference to human life" (Preface). Originally published in 1842, and dedicated to Prince Albert, this two-volume work documents Buckingham's findings and argues that the USA should follow Britain's example in abolishing slavery. The travel narrative records climate, geography, flora and fauna, but also describes the use of slaves in industries as diverse as gold mining, cotton manufacturing, railways, canals, and agriculture. He highlights the social and political issues surrounding free labour, and relations between the slaves and their employers. Note bookplates for Sir James Stuart, 1st Baronet of Oxford (1780-1853), named Chief Justice of Lower Canada in 1838, as well as Charles Theodore Hart, Montreal businessman.
