He was at the center of artistic society, including friendships with Benjamin Robert Haydon, William Blake and Samuel Palmer. Lacks plate 10 as usual, but with bis plate 47. Last two plates repaired, toning to portions of title page, interior contents clean with many plates to scale.

Housed in a red cloth slipcase. A Christmas Carol with hand-coloured frontispiece, 3 full-page, hand-coloured plates, and illustrations within the text. Other volumes with frontispiece and engraved title, and illustrations throughout. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedown of each volume save for The Battle of Life. A Christmas Carol with contemporary ownership inscription to front pastedown, toned cloth, chips at the head of the spine, and a few small spots to contents, but overall a nice, fresh copy. Other volumes with some rubbing at extremities, faded spine panels, splitting of the cloth at the joints, and occasional spots in the contents. The Chimes with dark markings to lower board, The Cricket on the Hearth with contemporary ownership inscription to front pastedown. An excellent set. First editions of Dickens's famous sequence of annual Christmas books.

The Battle of Life has the fourth state vignette title, as usual.

        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.

        On-Ge-Wae. A Chippewa Chief

      Philadelphia: Daniel Rice & James B. Clark, 1843. unbound. very good. Lithographic & Print Colouring Establishment. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20" x 14". 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.

        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."
