        THE OHIO COON CATCHER

      Columbus, Oh, 1844. Large folio. Dbd. Old folds, with some separation at folds. A few small tears; small repairs to issue 12. Light soiling and foxing. Good. A Democratic Party campaign newspaper, supporting James K. Polk for president. Published by Samuel Medary, the editor and publisher of the OHIO STATESMAN, this paper published twelve issues, Aug. 7 to Nov. 16, 1844 - from the time of Polk's nomination to his election. Medary, serving as the head of the Ohio delegation to the Democratic National Convention, led the nomination of Polk as the party's candidate. Full of anti-Whig and pro- Democrat sentiment and propaganda, the COON CATCHER promotes Polk's candidacy with news items, political opinion, testimonials of reformed Whigs, poems, and cartoons. One notable illustration shows a woodcut of fat and healthy "Coon of 1840" opposite a lean and sickly "Coon of 1844." The text around these two images reads, in part: "The coon of the present time is a different critter from what it was four years since. Then, plump and fat - now, it is leaner than any of Pharoah's lean kine. Its attenuated frame, consumptive and haggard look, is caused by the resistless tide of democratic Polk juice, which is spreading itself with an invigorating effect upon the body politic." The final issue contains the announcement of Polk's election, with the returns from the polls. Fewer than twenty locations for issues in OCLC.

        3 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift u. 2 eigenh. Gedichte.

      Rio de Janeiro u. Rom, 1844-1861. Zus. 9 S. (Briefe) u. 7 S. (Gedichte), 8°. „Bedini wurde als Spross der bekannten aus Ostra stammenden Bedini Familie geboren [...]. Als jüngster von sieben Söhnen, wurde Bedini für eine kirchliche Karriere bestimmt. Sein Vater meldete den Jungen im Priesterseminar von Senigallia an, wo Bedini am 20. Dezember 1828 die Priesterweihe empfing. In den folgenden Jahren war er Kanoniker an der Kathedrale von Senigallia. Dank einflussreicher Freunde, unter denen sich auch der gleichfalls aus Senigallia stammende Giovanni Maria Mastai Ferretti, der spätere Papst Pius IX., befand, wurde er 1838 in den diplomatischen Dienst der Kurie berufen. Hier wurde er zunächst als Sekretär von Lodovico Altieri, dem Erzbischof von Ephesos und Nuntius in Österreich tätig. 1845 wurde Altieri, der zwischenzeitlich einige Erfahrungen in der Diplomatie gesammelt hatte, nach Rom beordert. Dort wurde er am 21. April 1845 von Papst Gregor XVI. zum Kardinal berufen und mit dem Amt des Apostolischen Protonotars betraut. Damit war Bedinis Tätigkeit als Sekretär Altieris beendet. Seine erste selbstständige Mission führte Bedini von Oktober 1845 bis August 1847 nach Brasilien, wohin er als Internuntius entsandt wurde. Dort arbeitete er vornehmlich auf eine Verbesserung der Lebensbedingungen der deutschen Einwanderer hin. Bei dieser Gelegenheit versuchte er auch Protestanten für die katholische Kirche zu gewinnen. Zu gleicher Zeit wie Bedini hielt sich auch Giuseppe Garibaldi in Südamerika auf. Hieraus ergaben sich Kontakte, die in einem Brief Garibaldis an Bedini gipfelten, in dem Garibaldi bat, dem Papst mitzuteilen, dass sein Schwert und seine Italienische Legion jederzeit für das geliebte Heimatland und die Kirche zur Verfügung stünden, wie es die unsterbliche und ewig neue gemeinsame Religion einfordere. Er sei sich jedoch darüber im Klaren, dass der Thron Petri auf Fundamenten stehe, die nicht von Menschenhand erschüttert werden könnten. Bedini nahm den Brief dankend entgegen, doch wurde Garibaldis Offerte in Rom nicht angenommen. Als Bedini 1848 nach Rom zurückkehrte wurde er Assistent des Kardinals Giacomo Antonelli, der zu dieser Zeit die Stellung eines Außenministers des Kirchenstaats innehatte. Von März bis November 1848 folgte Bedini dem Papst im Gefolge der Revolution von 1848 ins Exil nach Gaeta. In dieser Zeit vermochte Garibaldi, den Widerwillen der Römer gegen Napoléon III., dessen Truppen dem Papst zu Hilfe kamen, auszunutzen und unterstützte das Triumvirat aus Giuseppe Mazzini, Aurelio Saffi und Carlo Armellini, welches der kurzlebigen römischen Republik vorstand. In der Folge der Rückkehr des Papstes nach Rom war Bedini von 1849 bis 1852 wieder als päpstlicher Nuntius tätig. In dieser Zeit wurde er als Legat und Botschafter nach Bologna entsandt. Gerade zu Beginn seiner Arbeit in Bologna wurde der von den Österreichern bei Comacchio gefangen genommene italienische Patriot Ugo Bassi in die Stadt gebracht und dort schließlich am 8. August 1849 erschossen. Viele Anhänger der italienischen Patrioten warfen Baldini vor, dass er nichts unternommen habe, um Bassi zu retten. Dabei ließen sie wohl außer acht, dass Bedini ohnehin nur äußerst wenig Einfluss auf die Entscheidungen der Österreicher hätte ausüben können. Am 15. März 1852 wurde Bedini zum Titularerzbischof von Thebae ernannt. Drei Tage später erhielt er von Kardinal Luigi Lambruschini den Auftrag, sich als päpstlicher Nuntius nach Brasilien zu begeben. Die Einreise nach Brasilien bleib ihm jedoch wegen einer dort gerade wütenden Pestepidemie verwehrt, so dass er sich statt dessen in die Vereinigten Staaten begab und so der erste päpstliche Nuntius in den USA wurde. Während seines gesamten Aufenthaltes in den USA wurde Bedini von italienischen Patrioten unter der Führung des ehemaligen Priesters Alessandro Gavazzi wegen seiner angeblichen Beteiligung an der Hinrichtung Bassis verfolgt. Es wurden sogar gegen Bedini gerichtete Proteste auf öffentlichen Plätzen organisiert. Nach einem gewalttätigen Protestakt in Cincinnati verhaftete man indes die Rädelsführer und wies sie aus den USA aus. Die restliche Zeit in den USA konnte Bedini sodann in relativer Ruhe verbringen. 1856 wurde er bei seiner Rückkehr nach Italien zum Generalsekretär der Kongregation für die Evangelisierung der Völker ernannt und im März 1861 zum Bischof von Viterbo und Toscanella geweiht. Bei seinem Einzug in Viterbo am 8. Mai 1861 wurde er von der Bevölkerung und vom Klerus herzlich begrüßt und durch die festlich illuminierten Straßen der Stadt zur Kathedrale geleitet. Am 27. September 1861 wurde Bedini zum Kardinalbischof von Santa Maria sopra Minerva geweiht. Bedini verstarb plötzlich und unerwartet am Morgen des 6. September 1864 im Alter von 59 Jahren, als er vermutlich einen Schlaganfall erlitt. In der Stadt Viterbo herrschte ob der Todesnachricht große Trauer. Obwohl sich viele Gäste in der Stadt befanden, die an einem Fest zu Ehren der Heiligen Rosa teilnehmen wollten, wurde dieses Fest abgesagt. Bedini wurde in der Kathedrale von Viterbo in einem Marmorgrabmal in der Nähe der heiligen Rosa und seines Vorgängers bestattet“ (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius\' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Mislin, Bedini, Brasilien, Amerika, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. („JFWHerschel").

      Collingwood bei Hawkhurst, 10. Mai 1844. - 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Parlamentarier mit der Bitte um Auskunft über bevorstehende Gesetzesänderungen und deren Auswirkungen auf Bankeinlagen sowie auf die „Friends Society" und vergleichbare Einrichtungen: „I have just seen in the Times of yesterday the Draft of a bill for the future regulations of Savings Banks. One claim limits deposits in them to 20£ in any one year. Another disallows trust accounts and a third limits the interest (after a year or so) to £ 2:13:6 per annum. If the bill is intended to affect only Savings Banks it will be to the ‚Friends Society’ merely an inconvenience – but if it be intended as the precursor of a general reduction of interest in the case of such Societies as that [.] it will I fear so far cripple us that in a district like this which is felt to be an unpromising one it will leave us very little chance of success [.] the reduction from 3½ to 2½ per Cent is a very formidable one. – At all events it nullifies all our tables and torecalculate them at 2½ will be a work of time, serious responsibility and heavy expense – yet with the immediate prospect of this ‚Casus Foederis’ hanging over us it would I think be very unwise [.] to enter into contracts with any who may now apply which we should speedily have to modify to their disadvantage [.]". – Der Sohn des Astronomen Wilhelm Herschel übernahm von diesem dessen Sternwarte, „entdeckte, daß die Magellanschen Wolken aus Sternen bestehen, gab verschiedene Sternen-Kataloge heraus und führte das Julianische Datum in die Astronomie ein [.] Seine Vielseitigkeit beweist auch die Anwendung der Lichtempfindlichkeit bestimmter Eisensalze zu damals neuen photographischen Verfahren. Er verbesserte die Cyanotypie. 1842 entdeckte er den photographischen Prozeß zum Belichten von Papierbildern auf der Basis von kolloidalem Gold, den er Chrysotypie nannte" (Wikipedia, Abfrage v. 17. IX. 2009). – Nach Herschel wurden eine Insel in der kanadischen Beaufortsee und ein Mondkrater benannt. – Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt und in den Faltungen leicht angestaubt.

        Das Kindbettfieber in nosologischer, geschichtlicher und therapeutischer Bezischung.

      Halle, Eduard Anton, 1844 - 8vo (213 x 126 mm), pp viii 346; some contemporary pencil annotations to text, an attractive copy in original cloth-backed marbled boards. £1250First edition of Litzmann's treatise on puerperal or 'childbed' fever, then rampant in maternity hospitals. The chapter on prophylaxis details the use of chlorine compounds, including bleach, to keep the birthing area and wards clean (these passages are highlighted by the annotator). This work was published the year that Semmelweis took up his position as professor in the obstetrics ward of the Vienna General Hospital, leading to his famous discoveries regarding antisepsis and puerperal fever.Litzmann (1815-1890) was the son of the physician Heinrich Carl Friedrich Litzmann (1782-1864). He studied from 1834 in Berlin, Halle, and Würzburg, obtaining his doctorate at Halle in 1838. One of his teachers in Halle was the obstetrician Anton Friedrich Hohl (1789-1862). In 1845 he was appointed professor extraordinary of general pathology and therapy at Greifswald. In 1849 he accepted an invitation to come to Kiel as professor of obstetrics and director of the maternity hospital there. He is eponymised in 'Litzmann's classification' of the shape of the female pelvis and 'Litzmann's obliquity', a rare form of posterior parietal presentation.OCLC records no North American locations; BL, BN (France), Strasbourg, and Danish National Library for Europe

        COMMERCE OF THE PRAIRIES: OR THE JOURNAL OF A SANTA FE TRADER DURING EIGHT EXPEDITIONS ACROSS THE GREAT WESTERN PRAIRIES, AND A RESIDENCE OF NEARLY NINE YEARS IN NORTHERN MEXICO

      New York, 1844. Original cloth, stamped in blind and gilt. Cloth lightly worn, front joint on second volume cracked with cloth splitting. Previous owner's name (W.B. Childers) stamped in ink on front and rear endpapers. Plates a bit darkened and foxed, otherwise internally very clean and fresh. A very nice set overall. First edition, first issue, with a New York imprint only. One of the landmark books of Western Americana. Gregg's book is acclaimed by all sources as the principal contemporary authority on the Santa Fe Trail and trade, the Indians of the south plains, and New Mexico in the Mexican period. J. Frank Dobie calls it "one of the classics of bedrock Americana." It gives a lively, intimate, and personal account of experiences on the prairies and in northern Mexico. The "...Map of the Indian Territory Northern Texas and New Mexico showing the Great Western Prairies..." is by far the best map of the region up to that time. Wheat states: "Gregg's map was a cartographic landmark...'one of the most useful maps of this region at that day.'" "A cornerstone of all studies on the Santa Fe Trail in the early period, describing the origin and development of the trade, Gregg's own experiences, and useful statistics for 1822- 43" - Rittenhouse.

        Letters by Oliver Cowdery, to W.W. Phelps, on the Origin of the Book of Mormon, and the Rise of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

      Liverpool: Thomas Ward and John Cairns, 1844. First Edition. 48 pp. Small duodecimo. Sewn wrappers. Missing original yellow wrappers. Otherwise a fine copy with only minor discoloring to first and last page. An early, scarce and important LDS item. According to Crawley "Oliver's Cowdery's eight letters to W.W. Phelps, first published in the 'Messenger and Advocate' between October 1834 and October 1835, constitute the earliest printed account of the birth of Mormonism. Extracts from the letters were included in the 'Millennial Star' for June and September 1840, and the letters were reprinted more or less in full in the 'Times and Seasons' of November 1 - December 15, 1840, and March 15 - May 1 ,1841. They were again republished in the sixth number of the 'Gospel Reflector. A Comparison of the various printing makes it clear that the pamphlet 'Letters to Oliver Cowdery' was taken from the 'Gospel Reflector.' Thomas Ward included the first letter in the Millennial Star of January 1843 and announced there that he intended to publish all eight in pamphlet form. One year later the 'Star' noted that 'Letters by Oliver Cowdery' was in press, and in February 1844 it advertised the pamphlet as just published, price 6d. each, or 5s. per dozen. Cowdery's first letter described his initial contact with Joseph Smith, his participation in translating the Book of Mormon, and the appearance of John the Baptist which he and Joseph Smith shared. In the third letter he moves back in time and discusses the revival led by Rev. Lane in the Palmyra Area, the attendant religious excitement, and the Smith family's religious seeking - events that are usually associated with Joseph Smith's 1820 vision. At this point a curious textual change occurs. The version of this letter in the 'Messenger and Advocate' states that this religious excitement occurred during Joseph Smith's fifteenth year. In the pamphlet 15th is changed to 17th. The fourth letter picks up the narrative and, in the original version, it states that the reference to the fifteenth year in Letter III was "an error in the type- it should have been in the 17th...this would bring the date down to the year 1823." The pamphlet version eliminates any reference to an error and, like the original, proceeds from this point with an account of the appearance of the angel to Joseph Smith on September 21, 1823, an event that is entirely unrelated t o the religious excitement described in his third letter. These changes follow the 'Gospel Reflector', so Benjamin Winchester must have been responsible for them. Whatever was intended in letter III certain problems persist. Joseph Smith's seventeenth year was 1822, not 1823. And Rev. George Lane was prominently in the Palmyra area in 1824-25. It is conceivable that Cowdery shifted the date after realizing he had introduced Lane at the wrong time. It is possible that he described the events leading up to Joseph Smith's 1820 version in Letter III with the intent of recounting it in Letter IV; then, after Letter II was printed, he decided not to mention the vision, which at the time was not openly discussed. Letter VII continues the account of the angelic visitation on September 21, 1823, and of the events just following. It includes a description of the Hill Cumorah, where Joseph Smith obtained the plates. Letter VIII further describes Cumorah and relates the vision he had at the spot. The next-to-last paragraph refers to a trial he was subjected to sometime between 1823 and 1827 - undoubtedly the trial at South Bainbridge, New York, in 1826. The pamphlet concludes with a short letter from Joseph Smith, first published in the 'Messenger and Advocate' of December 1834, in which he comments on his early life." Crawley 197.

        MORMONISM: EMBRACING THE ORIGIN, RISE AND PROGRESS OF THE SECT, WITH AN EXAMINATION OF THE BOOK OF MORMON; ALSO, THEIR TROUBLES IN MISSOURI, AND FINAL EXPULSION FROM THE STATE...WITH AN APPENDIX, GIVING AN ACCOUNT OF THE LATE DISTURBANCES IN ILLINOIS, WHICH RESULTED IN THE DEATH OF JOSEPH AND HYRUM SMITH. BY G.W. WESTBROOK

      St. Louis, 1844. Original black ribbed cloth, expertly rebacked with original backstrip laid down. Titlepage reinserted, lower blank margin a bit trimmed. Overall just about very good. In a half morocco box. Second edition, but the first edition to contain Westbrook's important appendix, which makes a large contribution to the history of the events which led to the Smiths' assassinations. Hunt felt the Mormons had slandered the citizens of Missouri by making charges against them in Mormon accounts of their difficulties in the state. Hunt casts a cold eye on the origins of THE BOOK OF MORMON, the Mormon Church, and the activities of the sect from its inception to their present state. The errata leaf cited by Howes and present in the Graff copy is also present in this copy, though lacking from others we have seen.

        De valkenvangstThe Hague, W.P. van Stockum, 1841. 8vo. With a frontispiece by "I.B." (=Johannes Bosboom) and 11 wood-engraved head- and tailpieces. Contemporary boards, Spanish-marbled sides, sprinkled edges.

      Huyskens, De vrije vogelvlugt, pp. 84-93; Schwerdt II, p. 307; not in Harting; Lindner. Very rare first edition (a second edition was published in Antwerp in 1844) of a poem satirising Dutch practitioners of falconry in the early 19th Century, particularly the members of the famous Royal Loo Hawking Club. De valkenvangst (the capture of falcons) contrasts the majesty of the falcons, whose manner of hunting is described at the beginning of the poem, with the basal entertainment pursued by the "falconers", who believed that they could easily restore the forgotten art of falconry.In the poem, a company including the Dutch baron Van Deelen and the Englishman Lord Littlewhit travels to Norway to capture some falcons, parodying a real-life voyage in 1838. After numerous perils two white gyrfalcons are captured, while the noblemen amuse themselves with hunting and fishing. However, on the return voyage one of the falcons is accidentally shot and the other released by the baron's valet, who then puts a different bird in the cage. As the baron intends to reveal the falcon to his guests, a cockatoo is revealed. Rebacked in modern dark brown half morocco. Binding worn at the edges. Foxed throughout and with water stains at the foot.

        CANADA - MONTREAL]. PLAN OF MONTREAL PUBLISHED BY ARMOUR & RAMSAY, 1844.

      - This extremely rare, separately issued map of Montreal is printed on thin blue lettersheet-type paper and has the distinction of being one of the earliest maps of the city to have been published in Canada. It was issued in Montreal by the prominent firm of Armour & Ramsay, having been lithographed by George Matthews. The map showcases the entire city of Montreal as it was during the early 1840s, with its marked limits roughly enclosing what is today’s downtown. With a population of over 50,000, Montreal was then British North America’s largest city and its financial and cultural epicentre. The map maintains a roughly westward-orientated perspective and is centered on Old Montreal. The city is shown divided into wards, and while still in an intermediate stage of urbanization, the outer areas feature now familiar thoroughfares such as "Sherbrooke Street," "Dorchester Street" (today’s René Lévesque Boulevard) and "St. Denis Street". The "Lachine Canal," completed in 1824, pictured on the south side of town, had proven to be a major economic boon to the city, providing a transport connection to Upper Canada. Montreal’s coat of arms adorns the upper right corner of the composition. Beginning the lower-right and continuing on the upper left, the map labels 56 major buildings and sites of interest including: 1) St. James Church; 2) Catholic Bishop’s House; 3) St. Lawrence Market; 6) Dalhousie Square; 10) Theatre Royal; 11) Fish Market; 12) New Market; 13) Nelson’s Monument; 15) Court House; 16) Church of Scotland; 17) English Church; 19) Hotel Dieu; 20) French Cathedral (Notre-Dame Cathedral, completed in 1843); 21) Seminary; 23) Montreal Bank; 28) Recolet Church; 31) Custom House; 34) College; 36) Eagle Foundry; 44) Molson’s Brewery; 45) St. Marys Foundry; 46) New Gaol; 47) Spirit Distillery; 48) Exchange Coffee House; 51) Library & Nat. Histy. Socy.; 54) News Room; and 56) Post Office. The present map is one of the earliest maps of Montreal to have been printed in Canada and is one of the first city plans to have been lithographed in that country. Lithography was first introduced to Canada in 1831 (simultaneously in Montreal and Kingston). While the map was published under the authority of the bookseller and printer Armour & Ramsay, it was lithographed by George Matthews. Importantly, in 1843, Matthews had lithographed a series of scenes of Montreal by the artist James Duncan, rare works that are considered to be important monuments in the historic visual culture of the city. While seemingly not intended as a lettersheet, the map is printed on extremely thin blue lettersheet-type paper that was popular during the 1840s an 1850s. The map is quite large for a work printed on such paper and, being separately issued, this certainly contributed to the map’s low survival rate and its great rarity today. The addition of discreet contemporary manuscript annotations, in the centre left of the present example of the map, mark out "16 Bellevue Terrace," an address that was then the residence of the leading industrialist Thomas Moreland, the co-proprietor of Moreland, Watson & Co. Wholesalers, which in 1864 went on to found the steel firm, Montreal Rolling Mills. Armour & Ramsay: Leading Canadian Publisher The map is one of the rarest productions of Armour & Ramsay, then the leading bookseller and publisher in British North America. While relatively short-lived, the enterprise had a transformative impact upon print culture in what is now Canada. The firm was founded in 1835 by Andrew Harvie Armour (1809-59) and his brother-in-law Hew Ramsay (1811-57). Armour was the son of the Scots publisher and businessman Robert Armour (1781 - 1857), the owner of the Montreal Gazette, the city’s leading English-language newspaper, which had a strong Tory editorial bias (pro-British colonialism, right wing). Armour & Ramsay brought the Gazette from Robert Armour in 1836 and hired aggressive and highly partisan editors in order to sharpen the paper’s rhetoric

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM HUDSON'S BAY COMPANY FACTOR DONALD ROSS TO THE CHIEF FACTOR OF THE COMPANY, JOHN STUART, DESCRIBING THE SEASON'S TRADE AND COMMENTING ON THE OREGON BOUNDARY DISPUTE]

      Norway House" [Nelson River, Manitoba, Canada], 1844. Folded sheet. Short separations at folds, hole from opening costing a few words, else very good. For much of the first half of the 19th century Great Britain and the United States had jointly occupied the fur-rich Oregon country (known as the Columbia District to the Hudson's Bay Company), the northwest coast region west of the continental divide, north of the Columbia River to the 54th parallel. By 1844, however, with America's vision of manifest destiny in full swing, the U.S. laid claim to the region, launching the Fifty-four Forty or Fight campaign. Particularly debated was the area north of the Columbia but south of the 49th parallel (i.e. much of present-day Washington State). Ross here argues that if that area were ceded, the entire region to the 54th parallel might as well be forsaken: "...Our furs, I am happy to see, sold well last winter, with the exception of Beaver, and the quantity sent home was by no means small, yet somehow or other, we cannot manage to make profit nowadays, tho' the trade was never carried on in this country with so little expense; there must be a peg loose somewhere, that is a clear case, but I shall not pretend to say where the leakage is. The trade of this Department for the last outfit is certainly very good...and as we are now again to hunt beaver without restraint, I expect the current year will produce something even better than the last...The Columbia too has given large return for the last outfit but its expenses, I fear, will swallow all up, and probably more; our affairs in that quarter, I expect are in a very critical state. The Americans are pouring across the mountains by thousands, and if the Oregon question be not speedily settled, some serious mischief will assuredly arise before long. These grasping Republicans it appears insist on the line of 49 to the sea; if they get that, it will be better to give them the whole, the rest will be of little value to England and will rather be a source of trouble and annoyance than of real benefit to the nation; they have no just claim whatever to any portion of the territory, but John Bull, good honest soul as he is, terrible when his anger is up, allows himself to be cheated and gulled by every body who can manage to blurry and tickle him into good humour. For my own part, I sincerely wish we were well rid of the whole concern, for I strongly fear we shall then suffer the heaviest blow that ever fell on the fur trade...." Two years later the Oregon Treaty was signed, setting the boundary between the U.S. and Canada as the 49th parallel.

        [MANUSCRIPT LOG OF THE U.S.S. DELAWARE, KEPT BY ROBERT STORER, DURING HER FINAL CRUISE HOME FROM THE MEDITERRANEAN]

      [Various places], 1844. Quarto. Original brown cloth. Cloth moderately soiled and stained. Light dampstaining to some of the text. About very good. Manuscript log book of the U.S.S. Delaware, kept by seaman Robert B. Storer during the ship's final voyage. The U.S.S. Delaware was launched in October 1820. She spent most of her active duty cruising in the Mediterranean, where she served in the interests of American commerce and diplomacy in that area, though she also spent several years stationed in Brazil, patrolling the coasts of Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina to represent American interests during political unrest in those countries. She began her final voyage to the Mediterranean in February 1843, setting out from Rio de Janeiro. This log covers the last three months of the Delaware's active service, documenting her return voyage from the Mediterranean to Norfolk. She arrived home in March 1844, and was still at the naval yard in 1861, when she was set afire with other U.S. ships in order to keep them from falling into Confederate hands. The log begins with the ship at anchor in Mahon harbor, off Minorca in the Mediterranean. Storer keeps details of provisioning the ship and readying to sail for first twelve days of January. As is standard with ship's logs, he records speeds, winds, and weather conditions, as well as the positioning of the sails. Everyday events such as inspecting the crew or holding "divine service" on Sundays are noted, as are sightings of other ships' sails and exchanging colors with passing vessels. The Delaware sights the coast of Spain and moves into the Atlantic around the third week in January; on February 2, crew member Jacob Lawrence, a marine, dies (though Storer does not say from what), and his funeral service is held the next day, and Lawrence's body is committed to the deep. Also of note, the Delaware investigates a wreck on February 15: "At 7.45 hauled up the courses, hauled down the jib and laid the main and mizen topsails to the mast, and sent a boat to board the wreck. At 8.15 the boat returned from the wreck; discovered her to be the English Hermaphrodite Brig 'Halifax' of 'Halifax,' loaded with lumber, water logged and foremast sawed off, nothing living on board." The rest of the voyage is uneventful and relatively smooth, and the Delaware sights the Cape Henry lighthouse on March 4. The last few days are recorded as the ship is anchored at Hampton Roads, including a salute to the passing of former Secretary of the Navy Thomas Gilmer, who died on February 28.

Late 19th-century green morocco by Bickers sometime rebacked with the original spines laid down (hinges strengthened with green cloth), richly gilt spine, three-line gilt border on sides, richly gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Chromolithograph portrait frontispieces, 24 plates of buildings, 6 plates or plants and ornaments. Spines and extremities of sides sunned. First edition. Sir William Henry Sleeman (1788-1856) "was a British soldier and administrator in India [who] joined the Bengal army in 1809. In 1820 he became assistant to the Governor-General's Agent in the Sagar and Narmada territories... [and] is famous for... his role in the suppression of thagi [thuggee]. He was Resident at Gwalior from 1843 to 1849 and at Lucknow from 1849-1856. He died at sea near Sri Lanka in 1856. In his book Rambles and Recollections of an Indian Official he has given a very sympathetic account of India and its people" (Mishra & Mishra, India Through Alien Eyes, Chapter 8). Sleeman's chapter on suttee has been described as "one of the longest suttee texts in Victorian literature" (Margery Sabin, Dissenters and Mavericks: Writings about India in English, 1765-2000, Oxford 2002, p. 80).

        CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO. HUNTING SCENES AND AMUSEMENTS OF THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS AND PRAIRIES OF AMERICA. FROM DRAWINGS AND NOTES OF THE AUTHOR, MADE DURING EIGHT YEARS' TRAVEL AMONGST FORTY-EIGHT OF THE WILDEST AND MOST REMOTE TRIBES OF SAVAGES IN NORTH AMERICA

      London, 1844. Folio. Publisher's brown moire cloth boards, upper cover lettered in gilt, rebacked and retipped with dark brown calf. Endpapers and tissue guards renewed, scattered minor soiling. Else very good. First edition, handcolored issue. Catlin published the first two issues of CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO... simultaneously in late November 1844. The first issue was handcolored, and the second had tinted plates. Catlin originally envisaged publishing a series of linked but separate portfolios, each with its own theme: religious rites, dances, costumes, etc. Unfortunately, the first series was the only one that was ever published, and its production proved to be so taxing (both financially and physically) that Catlin sold both the publication and distribution rights to Henry Bohn. CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO contains the results of his years of painting, living with and travelling amongst the Great Plains Indians. Catlin summarized the American Indians as "an honest, hospitable, faithful, brave, warlike, cruel, revengeful, relentless, - yet honourable, contemplative and religious being." In a famous passage from the preface of his NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO, Catlin describes how the sight of several tribal chiefs in Philadelphia led to his resolution to record their way of life: "the history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life shall prevent me from visiting their country and becoming their historian." He saw no future for either their way of life or their very existence, and with these thoughts always at the back of his mind he worked, against time, setting himself a truly punishing schedule, to record what he saw. From 1832 to 1837 he spent the summer months sketching the tribes and then finished his pictures in oils during the winter. The record he left is unique, both in its breadth and in the sympathetic understanding that his images constantly demonstrate. A selection of the greatest of images from this record were published in CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO in an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible. In addition to publishing the present work, Catlin spent from 1837 to 1852 touring the United States, England, France, and Holland with his collection of paintings, examples of Indian crafts and accompanied by representative members of the Indian tribes. A financial reverse in 1852 meant that he lost the collection, but he spent his later years making several trips to South and Central America, sketching the natives there. The plates are as follows: 1) "North American Indians." 2) "Buffalo Bull Grazing." 3) "Wild Horses, at Play." 4) "Catching the Wild Horse." 5) "Buffalo Hunt, Chase." 6) "Buffalo Hunt, Chase." 7) "Buffalo Hunt, Chase." 8) "Buffalo Dance." 9) "Buffalo Hunt, Surround." 10) "Buffalo Hunt, White Wolves attacking a Buffalo Bull." 11) "Buffalo Hunt, Approaching a Ravine." 12) "Buffalo Hunt, Chasing Back." 13) "Buffalo Hunt, Under the White Wolf Skin." 14) "Snow Shoe Dance." 15) "Buffalo Hunt, on Snow Shoes." 16) "Wounded Buffalo Bull." 17) "Dying Buffalo Bull, in Snow Drift." 18) "The Bear Dance." 19) "Attacking the Grizzly Bear." 20) "Antelope Shooting." 21) "Ball Players." 22) "Ball-Play Dance." 23) "Ball Play." 24) "Archery of the Mandans." 25) "Wi-Jun-Jon an Assiniboine Chief...Going to Washington...Returning to his home." A highly important record of a "truly lofty and noble race....A numerous nation of human beings...three-fourths of whose country has fallen into the possession of civilized man...twelve million of whose bodies have fattened the soil in the mean time; who have fallen victims to whiskey, the small-pox, and the bayonet" (Catlin).

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM OREGON MISSIONARY HENRY BRIDGEMAN BREWER TO HIS PARENTS, DESCRIBING THE ATTEMPTED HUMAN SACRIFICE OF A YOUNG SLAVE BY LOCAL INDIANS AND THE CHILD'S RESCUE BY A FELLOW MISSIONARY, AS WELL AS THE ACTIVITIES OF THE MISSIONARIES]

      Oregon Territory, Columbia River, 1844. Old folds. A few stains. Some small closed splits along folds, longer split along bottom fold of second leaf, with no loss of text. Overall very good. A remarkable letter, offering a wealth of information on the activities of the Methodist Mission in Oregon Territory in the 1840s, and including vivid details of the attempted sacrifice of a young slave by local Indians. At the time of this letter the Methodist Mission in Oregon was a decade old, and leadership was passing from the mission's founder, Rev. Jason Lee. Henry Brewer's letter describes this tumultuous time in the mission's history, gives information on his own experiences with local Indians and relates, in riveting detail, the near sacrifice of a young slave. Henry Bridgeman Brewer (1813-86) was a Methodist missionary born in Wilbraham, Massachusetts. In October 1839 he sailed with the Methodist Episcopal Mission around Cape Horn, arriving at Fort Vancouver the following June. He served as a farmer, teacher, and translator at the Wascopum Mission at the Dalles of the Columbia River until 1847, when the mission was transferred to the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, and he returned to Massachusetts. The most striking passage in Brewer's letter describes the attempted sacrifice of a young slave by a grieving Indian father: "While we were on our visit to Wallamette a circumstance took place which shows that heathenistic practices are not all done away. It may be a good story for a Sabbath school. Sinimsh an Indian who lives not far from our house had a little boy whom he loved dearly; the father's heart was set upon him. This little boy was taken sick and died. The father had a little slave that used to wait upon his little son in his life time. The father thought for the love he had for his son he ought to sacrifice the slave at his death, accordingly the deceased child and the living slave were taken to the sepulchre of the dead. (The Indians of the Dalles bury their dead in houses made of boards on an island in the Dalles to keep them from the wolves). The slave is probably eight years old. He made no resistance. They bound him hand & foot & laid him upon the bodies of other deceased persons who had been recently placed there, with his face downward & the body of the deceased child placed upon him. Just as they were about to leave him he called to them to loose the cord that bound him but they heeded not his cries. In this awful situation he spent one long dismal night though before morning he shook the corpse off from him. He said he heard the dead singing (the Indians believe this to be really true). One of the chiefs was in at Br. Perkins & was mentioning the circumstances & said he tried to dissuade them from doing as they did. Br. P. tried to have them bring him away that night but in vain. The next day Br. Perkins ransomed him from the grave by paying three blankets & a shirt which are to be placed in the room of the slave so that the dead may not be robbed. Br. P. has named him Ransom for he was ransomed from the grave. The little slave is a bright active little fellow. The sores where he was tied have not quite healed. Br. P. has him along & will probably put him out to some good pious man at Wallamette as an apprentice." Brewer's letter also gives a great deal of information about the activities of the missionaries in Oregon, including the succession of the leadership of the mission from the founder, Jason Lee, to George Gary, and the activities of missionaries Alvin F. Waller and H.K.W. Perkins. Brewer writes: "You no doubt have been apprised that Rev. Geo. Gary has been appointed to supercede Br. Lee in the superintendency of the Oregon Mission. The board no doubt made a good selection. Br. Gary is a good Father to us all. He is now 51 years old & a man of much experience. The board authorized him to dismiss all of the secular men of the mission except myself & sell all the farms, mills &c &c of the mission except the Wascopam [sic] farm, as they know not enough about that station to determine. Br. Gary has acted accordingly. The three farms on the Willamette are sold. The Indian school is given up, the store at Willamette Falls is sold &c." Toward the end of the letter, in a passage dated Oct. 3, Brewer announces his arrival at Wallamette Falls, relates news of the health of his wife, and describes the recent murder of a feared Indian: "Kladicula the Indian who abused us last spring was shot by a Cayuse Indian a few days before I left home. The Indians all seem to rejoice for they feared him. Thus you see vengeance belongs to God. I have felt for some time as though he would be cut off for his sins." An exceptional letter from an Oregon missionary.

        HISTORY OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA, WITH BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES AND ANECDOTES OF THE PRINCIPAL CHIEFS. EMBELLISHED WITH ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY PORTRAITS FROM THE INDIAN GALLERY IN THE DEPARTMENT OF WAR, AT WASHINGTON

      Philadelphia: II); Daniel Rice & James G. Clark (Vol. III), 1844. Folio. Expertly bound to style in half black morocco and period cloth covered boards, spines gilt. Very good. First edition of "One of the most costly and important [works] ever published on the American Indians" (Field), "a landmark in American culture" (Horan), and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life, including some of the greatest American handcolored lithographs of the 19th century. This copy has a complete set of the very rare original wrappers, here uniformly bound as a fourth volume. After six years as superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the American Indian for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827 he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee, and Winnebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with American Indian tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1839, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years he was joined by James Hall, the Illinois journalist, lawyer, state treasurer, and from 1833 a Cincinnati banker, who had written extensively about the West. Both authors, not unlike George Catlin, whom they tried to enlist in their publishing enterprise, saw their book as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. The text, which was written by Hall based on information supplied by McKenney, takes the form of a series of biographies of leading figures among the Indian nations, followed by a general history of the North American Indians. The work is now famous for its color plate portraits of the chiefs, warriors, and squaws of the various tribes, faithful copies of original oils by Charles Bird King painted from life in his studio in Washington (McKenney commissioned him to record the visiting Indian delegates), or worked up by King from the watercolors of the young frontier artist, James Otto Lewis. All but four of the original paintings were destroyed in the disastrous Smithsonian fire of 1865, so their appearance in this work preserves what is probably the best likeness of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the early 19th century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola. This was the most elaborate plate book produced in the United States to date, and its publishing history is extremely complex. The titlepages give an indication of issue and are relatively simple: volume I, first issue was by Edward C. Biddle and is dated 1836 or more usually 1837; the second issue is by Frederick W. Greenough and dated 1838; and the third issue is by Daniel Rice & James G. Clark and dated 1842. Volume II, first issue is by Frederick W. Greenough and dated 1838, and the second issue is by Rice & Clark and dated 1842. Volume III, first issue is by Daniel Rice & James G. Clark and dated 1844. Copies of the work with their original wrappers are of the utmost scarcity and seldom found.

        THE BIRDS OF AMERICA, FROM DRAWINGS MADE IN THE UNITED STATES AND THEIR TERRITORIES

      New York & Philadelphia, 1844. Royal octavo. Half titles. Period half black morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt. Spines a bit rubbed. Scattered foxing, generally to the tissue guards and text. Else very good. The first octavo edition of "Audubon's Great National Work." This is the first complete edition and the first American edition. The work is one of the "most beautiful, popular, and important natural history books published in America in the nineteenth century...[also] representing the best of pre-Civil War American lithography and giving Audubon the opportunity finally to display his scholarship and genius to a large American audience for the first time" (Ron Tyler). The plates, here accompanied by the text for the first time, were reduced and variously modified from the Havell engravings in the double elephant folio. Seven new species are figured, and seventeen others, previously described in the ORNITHOLOGICAL BIOGRAPHY but not illustrated, were also shown for the first time. Audubon may have been prompted to publish the reduced version of his double elephant folio by the appearance in 1839 of John Kirk Townsend's rival ORNITHOLOGY OF THE UNITED STATES; or, as he writes in the introduction to the present work, he may have succumbed to public demand and his wish that a work similar to his large work should be published, but "at such a price, as would enable every student or lover of nature to place it in his Library." The first edition of the octavo work is certainly the most famous and accessible of all American color plate books, and now represents the only realistic opportunity that exists for collectors to own an entire collection of Audubon images in a form that was overseen and approved by the great artist himself. The octavo BIRDS OF AMERICA was originally issued in 100 parts, each containing five plates executed by the Philadelphia lithographer, J.T. Bowen. The whole story of the production of the book, with detailed information about every aspect of the project, is told by Ron Tyler in AUDUBON'S GREAT NATIONAL WORK (Austin, 1993). The story Tyler tells of the difficulties of production and marketing are revealing of the whole world of color printing in mid-19th-century America. By combining detailed text with careful observations next to his famous images, Audubon proved that he was as good a scientific naturalist as the members of the scientific establishment who had scorned him.

        Traité de Fauconnerie.

      - Leiden & Düsseldorf 1844-1853. Elephant-Folio (695 x 510mm). With tinted lithographic pictorial titlepage, 2 tinted lithographic plates and 14 handcoloured lithographic plates. Recent green half morocco, richly gilt spine in 7 compartments with falcon ornaments, frontcover with gilt lettered label. "The finest work on Falconry which has ever been produced; not only on account of the beauty of the plates, wherein the hawks are depicted life-size and of the natural colours, but also for the general accuracy of the letterpress . Exclusive of the ornamental title-page., there are 16 folio plates, 2 of which are illustrative of Heron Hawking at the Loo, in 1844, with portraits of contemporary falconers; 2 others contain figures of hoods, jesses, lure, and other accessories; and the remaining 12 give life-size coloured figures of the hawks employed by falconers, admirably drawn by Joseph Wolf and J.B. Sonderland" (Harting, Bibliotheca Accipitraria 194). A fine copy with the first 3 text leaves skilfully reproduced. The 'Traité de fauconnerie' is the rarest and most beautiful sought after book on falconry ever published. According to the exhibition catalogue (1993) on falconry books in the Dutch Royal Library (The Hague) most likely only 100 copies were printed of which nowadays no more than 50 copies can be located.Fine Bird Books 105; Nissen IVB, 832.
