        Hunting of the Grizzly Bear [Tab. 36]

      London, published by Ackerman & Co. 1843 - Karl Bodmer. From Travels in the Interior of North America 1832-1834. Hand colored aquatint engraving. Paper size approximately 17 1/4” x 23 1/4”. Very small areas of foxing throughout. Karl Bodmer was a little-known Swiss painter when he was chosen by Prince Maximilian of Prussia to accompany his voyage to America, in order to document in pictorial terms the expedition. With the rest of Maximilian’s company, the two traveled among the Plains Indians from 1832 to 1834, a time when the Plains and the Rockies were still virtually unknown. They arrived in the West before acculturation had begun to change the lives of the Indians, and Bodmer, who was a protegé of the great naturalist von Humbolt, brought a trained ethnologist’s eye to the task. The Bodmer/Maximilian collaboration produced a record of their expedition that is incontestably the finest early graphic study of the Plains tribes.Maximilian and Bodmer journeyed from St. Louis up the Missouri River on the American Fur Company steamboat “Yellowstone,” stopping at a series of forts built by the Fur Company and meeting their first Indians at Bellevue. The travelers continued on another steamboat, “Assiniboin,” to Fort Union, where they met the Crees and Assiniboins. The expedition spent its first winter at Fort Clark, where the Mandans in particular excited Bodmer’s attention, although he was also to draw the Minatarri and Crow peoples. The explorers continued by keelboat to Fort Mackenzie, which proved to be the westernmost point of their journey. After living among and studying the Blackfeet for several weeks, Maximilian decided that it was too dangerous to continue, so the travelers returned southward, reaching St. Louis in May 1834.After the conclusion of the journey, Bodmer spent four years in Paris supervising the production of the aquatints made from his drawings. These prints rank with the finest Western art in any medium, and they are the most complete record of the Plains Indians before the epidemics of the mid-19th century had decimated their numbers, and before the white man’s expansion had taken their lands. In contrast to other artist-explorers of the 19th century, such as George Catlin, Bodmer was well-trained in the classic European tradition. The work that he did in America is considered to be the high point of a distinguished career. Perhaps more significant, the plates made from Bodmer's sketches were the first truly accurate images of the Plains Indians to reach the general public. Because the 1837 smallpox epidemic killed more than half the Blackfeet and almost all the Mandans, Bodmer’s visually striking work, together with prince Maximilian’s detailed studies of these tribes, form the primary accounts of what became virtually lost cultures. These spectacular and atmospheric images are important and beautiful records of the landscape of the American West as it appeared when Bodmer saw it, just before westward expansion took hold and began the indelible transformation of the frontier.

        INCIDENTS OF TRAVEL IN YUCATAN

      New York Harper & Brothers 1843 - 2 volumes. First edition. With 120 fine engravings, including the two large multi-folding frontispieces and a folding map. The engraved plates were made from daguerreotype views and drawings by Frederick Catherwood. 8vo, publisher&#146;s original brown cloth decorated with elaborate gilt designs in Mayan motif on the covers and the spines, lettered in gilt. xii, 459; xvi, 478 pp. A nice set, the paper with some toning and spotting as is all but inevitable with American books of the period. The cloth and gilt-work remain quite handsome. The bindings are well preserved and quite strong with only minor wear. The folding plates are all intact, the folding map is present, some use is evident as is usual. THE FIRST EDITION OF STEPHENS&#146; CLASSIC WORK ON CENTRAL AMERICA. Stephens was the first westerner to penetrate the jungles of Central America and explore the ruins of the Mayan civilization. William Catherwood's drawings of stelae and other monuments and buildings contribute enormously to the importance of the work. Their first expedition into Central America was cut short by illness before the regions of Yucatan were completely explored; this is the account of their second sojourn into those areas, to complete the work they had originally undertaken. Stephens&#146; work inspired generations of Meso-American scholars to preserve and explore these remarkable ruins. Catherwood&#146;s illustrations set the standard for archaeological illustration and in this case are the earliest and sometimes the only record of these monuments. Stephens had been sent, in 1839, by President Martin Van Buren to Central America on a confidential diplomatic visit. He was accompanied by Frederick Catherwood, an English artist with archeological experience. Together, they recorded teir observations on the ancient ruins in words and sketches, publishing INCIDENTS OF TRAVEL IN CENTRAL AMERICA, CHIAPAS AND YUCATAN in 1841. In the same year they returned to the region for a more comprehensive study and in 843 published their second collaborative effort INCIDENTS OF TRAVEL IN YUCATAN. In these works, "the wonderful structures of the race of Indians which once inhabited the peninsula of Central America are here described by pen and pencil with great clearness and minuteness" (Field, 379). Stephens wrote "with a quick and keen observation, an appreciative and good-natured sense of the ludicrous, and a remarkable facility of retaining vividly to the last the freshness of first impressions" (DNB). As a result of his extensive travels and popular narrative accounts, Stephens quickly became known as "the American traveler" (DNB). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Incidents of Travel In Yucatan - 2 Volumes

      Harper & Brothers, New York 1843 - 8vo, 2 volumes, xii, 459; xiii, 478 pages, complete with 124 illus and plates including 2 folding frontispiece panoramas, plus folding map. Original publisher's cloth, very bright gilt, verly light foxing to only some plates, ownership inscription to front endpapers, very good condition. A stellar set of a book that often is heavily foxed. This classic and influential work opened up a whole new area of research into the Mayan people. The plates by Catherwood are most impressive and have become famous in themselves. Considerable archeological research followed Stephens discoveries, laying the foundation (so excellent were his judgments) on which Maya archaeology has since rested. Probably the most widely read and enjoyed books on American archaeology, these recount the adventures and describe most carefully, for the first time, the antiquities that Stephens and his artist-architect companion, Catherwood, encountered in the Maya country. The man who first awakened widespread American and English interest in the Maya ruins of Central America was John Lloyd Stephens. This a sequel to the author's earlier work cut short by illness in 1841, and is much scarcer, the plates and illustrations by Catherwood are better and even more impressive than the earlier work. These add to our astonishment by portraying the gigantic ruins of still more imposing structures, erected by the vanished race of peninsular aborigines. Describes and contains the account of over forty-four ruined cities, or places in which remains or vestiges of ancient population were found. These descriptions are accompanied by full illustrations from Daguerreotype views and drawings taken on the spot by Mr. Catherwood. [Attributes: First Edition]
