        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]

        Mundung des Fox-River - Embouchure du Fox River [Tab. V]

      London, published by Ackerman & Co. 1843 - Karl Bodmer. From Travels in the Interior of North America 1832-1834. Aquatint engraving with later color. 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.

        Autograph letter signed offering a translation from the Arabic of El Suyuti's History of the Khalifs.

      London, between 1836 and 1843. - Two and a half handwritten sides on 2 leaves. Signed "your most obedient humble servant Dr. Sprenger", and concerning various Arabic manuscripts which Sprenger is considering translating. The letter dates from Sprenger's relatively brief time in London (1836-43), and thus predates any of his published works. He decides that Ibn Kourdadbeh's 'Oriental Geography' (the earliest surviving Arabic book on administrative geography) is unsuitable as he can only locate one MS copy. Instead, he offers to produce a translation of Suyuti's famous 'History of the Caliphs', which he notes has been accounted the best of such histories by the Arab encylopaedist Haji Khalfa. Sprenger transcribes several names from English into Arabic for the benefit of his correspondent. - A well-preserved and early letter reflecting Sprenger's outstanding command of Arabic sources. The Austrian-born Sprenger became one of the most noted orientalists of the 19th century, producing a comprehensive 'Life of Mohammad from Original Sources' in 1851. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Rare embossed geological map of England and Wales.The map's geological information is based upon Roderick Impey Murchison's map of the 1843. However, the present maps innovation is in representing elevation above sea level with the use of embossing. In order to ascertain the approximate heights above sea level, a "Vertical Scale" key, has been added below the list of English and Welsh counties. The key depicts cross sections of mountain ranges from under 700 feet to between 2800-3500 feet above sea level.The map is cited in the, LR 8 Geological Societies Archives 84 - Secretaries' Letterbooks, No.22: "Dobbs & Co 1843 June 20 London, present relievo map."Dobbs & Co was founded by H Dobbs in 1803 and had, by the middle of the nineteenth century, become one of the leading manufacturers of embossed, ornamental and illustrated cards, writing paper envelopes and valentines. Later the company became known as Dobbs, Bailey and Co. and Dobbs, Kidd and Co.We are only able to trace one institutional example of the map, that in the British Library.
