        Oche-Finceco

      Philadelphia: Daniel Rice & James G. Clark, 1843. unbound. very good. Lithographic & Print Coloring Establishment. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20.75" x 15". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Oche-Finceco was a Creek chief who signed the treaty between his nation and the federal government in Washington in 1826. It is unclear whether or not he was bribed to do so, but afterwards, he committed suicide. Minor chips and some staining along edges. Light offsetting. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.

        'We Pity the Plumage, But Forget the Dying Bird' - An Address to the People on the Death of the Princess Charlotte

      London: [Thomas Rodd], 1843. 16pp, disbound from a volume at some point, t.e.g. Slightly browned, one or two spots of foxing, but generally clean. Wise notes that "In 1843, when advertising the present pamphlet for sale, Rodd asserted that it was a facsimile reprint of an alleged original edition of which the author was said to have printed twenty copies in 1816. No example of this mysterious original has ever been unearthed ... My own opinion is that no original ever existed ... The motto 'We pity the plumage but forget the dying bird' was taken by Shelley from Paine's 'Rights of Man', 1817, Pt.I, p. 24, 'He [Burke] pities the plumage but forgets the dying bird'. This clearly denies any impression of the address dated 1816". The pamphlet decries the difference between the public concern for the death of the Princess and their indifference to the plight of the poorest in society (plus ca change) and also examines the execution of the leaders of the Pentrich Rising. Wise, 'A Shelley Library', page 46. First Edition. Disbound. Good. 8vo.

        Louis Spohr's Celebrated Violin School, Translated from the Original. Dedicated to the Author's Friend Edward Taylor Esqr. Gresham Professor Music. By John Bishop

      London Published only by R. Cocks & Co....Music Sellers in Ordinary to her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria 1. [no date] [1843]. Folio, 355 x 245 mms., pp. [iv], v [vi blank], 235 [236 blank], engraved throughout, including three full-age engraved plates illustrating violin posture and hand position, original embossed cloth, rebacked with old spine laid down, corners restored; childish scrawl of hands on verso of title-page, fore-edges a bit rough , but a very good copy. Spohr (1784 – 1859) published his Violinschule in 1832, and an English translation by C. Rudolphus appeared almost immediately. It codified many of the new conventions and practices of violin playing, and Spohr introduced his chin rest, which he had invented in about 1820. His pupil, U. C. Hill, produced a revised edition of the English translation in 1839. This new translation by John Bishop, who asserts in the preface (dated January 1843) that "numerous accidentals which, through oversight, were omitted in the German copy have, in this edition, been carefully inserted during the revision of the plates; so that, in this respect, I think I may lay claim to greater accuracy than even the original itself."

        A Christmas Carol. In Prose

      London: Chapman & Hall,, 1843. Being A Ghost Story of Christmas ... with illustrations by John Leech. Octavo. Original brown vertical fine-ribbed cloth, spine and upper cover decorated and lettered gilt, sides stamped in blind, green endpapers, gilt edges. Hand-coloured etched frontispiece and 3 plates after Leech. 1950s gift inscription to front free endpaper. Spine faded, a few small spots to cloth. An excellent copy, the contents fresh. First edition, first issue, with "Stave I" on the first page of text and green endpapers. These handcoloured endpapers, Dickens's original choice for his lavish gift book, proved a disappointment. The colour dusted off and smudged, so the endpapers were changed to yellow, not requiring hand work. Probably in the middle of binding, as demand grew faster than the current endpaper stock, it was decided to use up the green paper, and thereafter it was used indiscriminately with yellow, but discarded again when the initial supply of green became exhausted. Primary copies therefore occur with either green or yellow endpapers, some collectors preferring green as the author's original pre-publication choice.

        Oche-Finceco

      Daniel Rice & James G. Clark, Philadelphia 1843 - Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist.

These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century.

        On-Ge-Wae. A Chippewa Chief

      Daniel Rice & James B. Clark, Philadelphia 1843 - Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project,sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Overall toning and wear. A few tears and chips to edges. Small stain in right margin. One of many Native American portraits in our collection. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20" x 14".

        Travels Through the Alps of Savoy and Other Parts of the Pennine Chain with Observations on the Phenomena of Glaciers

      - 1843 Adam & Charles Black, Edinburgh, 1st, 4to, pp.x, 424, 4 pgs ads, color lithograph frontis, 1 color & 7 bw lithographs, 9 color topographical sketches, 2 maps (1 lg fldg), text illus, appendices, orig blindstamped green cloth w/ gilt lettered spine with a 3-pg contemporary hand-written note; cloth spine faded, sharp corners, front hinge starting, name of J. Ladd to fep, fldg map w/ orig folds & no tears, very good. ----- Forbes was a Scottish physicist and glaciologist who made many observations and mountain expeditions in the Alps, Norway and Dauphiné. He visited Norway primarily for scientific research on glaciers. He wrote two books related to mountaineering, and over 100 papers on glaciers, which are the first English accounts of systematic Alpine exploration and description of various regions. This, his first book, is regarded as the most scientifically important of all books of Alpine travel. Included is a 3-page handwritten note, referencing page numbers within the text, discussing and calculating the necessity of ascending to Montanvert to obtain a true view of the Mer de Glace. It is possible this is in Forbes’ hand but was certainly written by one quite familiar with the area. From the collection of William S. Ladd with his son’s name in small print. Rare first edition with the folding map and a most interesting note. Meckly 073, Neate F45, Perret 1707. ----- Ladd, William S., MD. (1887 – 1949) – AAC Councilor (1923-25), Vice-President (1926-28), President (1929-31), Honorary Member (1949) and member of the Alpine Club of Canada, the Alpine Club, and Club Alpin Francais (honorary). He started climbing at an early age with ascents of Mt. Hood (1904, 1905, 1911) and in the Canadian Rockies (1905). He made the first ascent of Mt. Saskatchewan, Canada, (1923, with Conrad Kain), attempted Mt. Fairweather (1926) and was a member of the first ascent team in 1931, and climbed in the Alps (1928). Ladd oversaw the participation and the founding of the Union International des Associations d’Alpinism (UIAA) and gave the gift of the AAC’s first clubhouse, an old fire station located on the upper East side of Manhattan. During his term the first American Alpine Journal was published (1929). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        KA PALAPALA HEMOLELE A IEHOVA KO KAKOU AKUA O KE KAUOHA KAHIKO A ME KE KAUOHA HOU I UNUHIIA MAILOKO MAI O NA OLELO KAHIKO

      Oahu and Honolulu: Na Na Misionari I Pai, 1843.. 1451pp. Large, thick octavo. Contemporary ruled Hawaiian sheep. Binding rubbed, minor wear at extremities of joints. Small insect track in extreme lower edge of first eight leaves. Ink stamp of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions Library on front pastedown, verso of titlepage, and final text page. Scattered foxing and tanning. Very good, in original condition. In a half morocco box. The first joint publication of the Old and New Testaments as an entity in the Hawaiian language, printed for the American Bible Society at the Mission Presses in Oahu (Old Testament) and Honolulu (New Testament). A number of printings of various books or groups of books of the Bible were printed as early as 1827, and the first Hawaiian printing of the New Testament appeared in 1835, with the Old Testament following in 1838. These printings are frequently found bound together, although issued separately. This is the first publication of the complete approved text as an entity, paginated continuously, and issued as one book. The New Testament has its own titlepage (page 1129) and imprint. The verso of the first titlepage bears the words, "Ka lua o ke pai ana" (the second printing), referring to the only other printing of the entire Old Testament in 1838 at the same press. A second printing of the entire Bible was made later in 1843; but curiously enough, Judd, et al, record no other complete printing of the Bible in the Hawaiian language through 1899. A handsome copy of an important Hawaiian Bible, in a Hawaiian binding. JUDD 265. FORBES 1416. HUNNEWELL, pp.24-25.

        A Course of Twelve Elementary Lectures on Galvanism; Illustrated with Upwards of 100 Engravings of Experiments and Apparatus

      London: Published by Sherwood, Gilbert and Piper..., 1843. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, 190 x 108 mms., pp. xi [xii blank], [1] - 231 [232 blank, 233 - 236 adverts], steel-engraved frontispiece and 103 engraved vignettes in text (the last one mis-numbered "203") original embossed cloth, front cover stamped in gilt, spine also stamped in gilt, binding neatly repaired with association inscriptions preserved. Inscribed on top margin of front free end-paper, "To Professor Benjamin Silliman/ with the Author's Respect." Below that, in a later hand is the following notation: "This book - presented by William Sturgeon to Benjamin Silliman the elder (as is indicated by the inscription above) was purchased from 'Burnhams' in Boston - together with other books which had been owned by Silliman - in June 1822, by Thos D Lockwood, and is presented by him to his friend John J. Carty June 11,. 1908." On the front paste-down end-paper is a note in Silliman's hand: "Recc. October 5 1844/ Read and carefully looked through October 17 -- This little books is replete with valuable information conveyed in a correct & lucid style./ B. S." Sturgeon (1783 - 1850) trained as a shoemaker but began publishing works on mathematics and electromagnetism in the 1820s. He produced an astonishing number of papers on electricity in the ensuing years, but never achieved financial success. This was his last publication but one. The recipient of this volume, the American chemist Benjamin Silliman (1779 - 1864) was a Professor of Science at Yale and the first to distill petroleum. John Joseph Carty (1861 - 1932) was an American electrical engineer and a major contributor to the development of telephone wires and its attendant technology; he was instrumental in the development of the first transcontinental telephone line. Thomas D. Lockwood was one of Carty's correspondents.
