        The Birds of America from Drawings Made in the United States and Their Territories

      New York: Roe Lockwood & Son, 1844. First octavo edition. 500 hand-coloured lithographed plates after Audubon by W.E. Hitchcock, R. Trembley and others, printed by J.T. Bowen of Philadelphia (plates 1-135, 151-500) or George Endicott of New York (plates 136-150), numerous wood-engraved anatomical figures in text. 7 vols. Royal octavo. Contemporary black morocco, spines with semi-raised bands in five compartments, tooled in gilt on each band, lettered in gilt, yellow endpapers, gilt edges, some foxing to the text, the plates generally clean. First octavo edition. 500 hand-coloured lithographed plates after Audubon by W.E. Hitchcock, R. Trembley and others, printed by J.T. Bowen of Philadelphia (plates 1-135, 151-500) or George Endicott of New York (plates 136-150), numerous wood-engraved anatomical figures in text. 7 vols. Royal octavo. The first octavo edition of Audubon's Great National Work: a tall set, bound from the original parts, in a contemporary full morocco binding. 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 the great American colour 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. 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 colour printing in mid-19th-century America. The enormous success of the work was important to Audubon for two main reasons: first, it was a moneymaker, marketed throughout the United States on a scale that the great cost of the original Birds of America had made impossible. Second, by combining a detailed text with careful observations next to his famous images, he offered further proof that he was as good a scientific naturalist as the members of the scientific establishment who had scorned his earlier work. 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). This tall set bound from the original parts and complete with subscriber's lists and half titles.  Unusually, the set is bound in a contemporary full morocco binding, with sets in half morocco and marbled paper boards more commonly found. Tyler, Audubon's Great National Work, 129, 165n. For first octavo editions, see: Grolier 45. Nissen IVB 52. Anker 19. Sabin 2364

        The Holy Bible. In Tamil.

      Madras: Printed at the American Mission Press for the Madras Auxiliary Bible Society and American Bible Society 8vo (22.5 cm; 8.875"). [4], 1104, 388 pp.. 1844 We are told by Darlow and Moule that this is "A new edition of . . . [the Tamil Bible of 1840]; with fresh chapter-headings and dates, translated from the English Bible by M. Winslow." While Winslow was the translator of these elements, "The Old Testament, [was] translated from the original by J.P. Fabricius; [and] the New Testament by the Rev. C.T.E. Rhenius and revised by the Committee of the Madras Auxiliary Bible Society." The first complete translation of the Bible into Tamil appeared in 1727. This is only the second complete Bible in Tamil in one volume. The English title-page is followed by a title-page in Tamil script; the text of the Bible is => entirely in Tamil script, as is the pagination. The N.T. has a separate title page in English and Tamil. The translators were a German missionary of the Lutheran faith who was a scholar of the Tamil language (Johann Philipp Fabricius, 1711?-791) and a German-born missionary of the Church Mission Society (Charles Theophilus Ewald Rhenius, 1790?-1838). Publisher's mottled and speckled dark brown calf; joints lightly abraded and the front joint (outside) starting to open in the lower inch-plus. A very good copy.

        [Seven editions of the Book of Common Prayer, 1549–1844 ].

      London: William Pickering (pr. by Whittingham) Folio (35.8 cm, 14"). 7 vols. I: [264] ff. II: [314] ff. III: [134] ff. IV: [130] ff. V: [142] ff. VI: [140] ff. VII: [154] ff.. 1844 Complete set of Pickering's handsome homages to important editions of the Book of Common Prayer, consisting of six early versions and one contemporary: Edward VI, 1549; Edward VI, 1552; Elizabeth, 1559; James I, 1604; Charles I, 1637 (for the use of the Church of Scotland, commonly called Archbishop Lauds); Charles II, 1662; and Victoria, 1844. The uniform black-letter printing was done by Charles Whittingham the younger, of the Chiswick Press, "distinguished for . . . tasteful design and excellent presswork" (Oxford DNB online). The collaboration between Whittingham and Pickering, one of the most important publishers of the 19th century, produced a number of impressive volumes; the present effort is notable for its outstanding typography and its wood-engraved initials and ornaments done by Mary Byfield. The original title-pages are reproduced in facsimile. Provenance: Elegant old lozenge-shaped ink-stamp on title-pages: "John Brymer Heir-Loom. Publisher's quarter vellum and marbled paper?-covered sides, spines with gilt-stamped leather title and volume labels, vellum variously dust-soiled and showing short cracks on some spines (rubbed through in small spots at the feet of two spines); boards and edges rubbed, a few spine labels with small chips or cracks, one volume with hinges (inside) reinforced, two volumes with minor repairs to joints. Bookseller's small ticket on back pastedowns in two volumes; each title-page save one stamped in upper outer corner by a 19th-century collector as above. Occasional minor foxing only, as a rule, with greater spotting in one section of one volume only. Many signatures unopened.

        Great blue Heron (Male)

      New York & Philadelphia: J.J.Audubon and J.B.Chevalier, 1844. Hand-coloured lithograph, after J.J. Audubon. Very good condition. A fine print from the first octavo edition of "The Birds of America": one of the "most beautiful, popular, and important natural history [works] published in America..." (Ron Tyler) Shortly after the publication of the hugely successful Havell edition of 'The Birds of America', Audubon issued the first royal octavo edition of this great work, the plates from which now represent the only realistic opportunity for collectors to own Audubon images in a form that was overseen and approved by the great artist himself. Its publication may have been inspired by the overwhelming public demand for his prints and his wish that a work similar to the original be published 'at such a price, as would enable every student or lover of nature to place it in his Library'. With its smaller plates, each of which depicts a single species, the octavo edition was certainly more accessible than the double-elephant Havell folio. The octavo edition was a multifaceted undertaking that gave Audubon an invaluable opportunity to substantially improve and enhance the original. Above all, the octavo version allowed him to scientifically arrange his subjects by genus and species and to include several newly discovered species of Western birds. Originally issued in 100 parts, each containing five plates executed by the Philadelphia lithographer J.T. Bowen, it was sold solely by subscription and proved so successful that seven later editions were subsequently issued. John James Audubon was born in Les Cayes, Haiti on 26 April 1785. He lived in France from 1788 to 1803, after which time he was sent to the United States to manage an estate that his father bought in Pennsylvania. In 1805, he briefly moved back to France; however, his fascination with the United States had taken root, and he returned there in May 1806. He married Lucy Bakewell in 1808, and together they embarked on a difficult period financially that was only to be resolved, through Audubon's unshakable and justified belief in his own abilities, with the publication of his masterpiece 'Birds in America' Cf. Bennett p.5; cf. Nissen IVB 51; cf. Ripley 13; cf. Ron Tyler, Audubon's Great National Work (1993) Appendix I; cf. Sabin 2364; cf. Zimmer p.22.

        Common or Virginian Deer

      New York: J. J. Audubon, 1844. Lithograph after John Woodhouse Audubon, coloured by hand by J. T. Bowen of Philadelphia. 19th century oak frame with gilt fillet. A fine image from the greatest illustrated natural history work to be produced in America during the nineteenth century, the first folio edition of Audubon's quadrupeds: "As long as our civilization lasts, America will be in debt to this genius" (Roger Tory Peterson). This very fine plate is among the most desirable images from the first folio edition of John James Audubon's The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America. Of the Virginia, i.e. white-tailed, deer, Audubon would write: "Perhaps no species of wild animal inhabiting North-America, deserves to be regarded with more interest than the subject of our present article, the Common or Virginian Deer; its symmetrical form, graceful curving leap or bound, and its rushing speed, when, flying before its pursuers, it passes like a meteor by the startled traveler in the forest, exciting admiration." This fine image aptly depicts those words, with the defined muscular tone of the deer suggesting their impressive agility. The production of the Quadrupeds was begun by John James Audubon and his sons at about the same as the commercially-successful octavo edition of The Birds of America . Unlike the double-elephant folio Birds , the Quadrupeds was produced entirely in the United States. William Reese notes that "by 1843 the Audubon family business was a well-oiled machine, involving John James, his two sons, Victor and John Woodhouse, and various in-laws and friends. The octavo Birds was still in production when J.T. Bowen began to produce the plates for the elephant folio edition of the Quadrupeds , the largest successful color plate book project of 19th-century America. It took the family five years to publish 150 plates in thirty parts. The massive project was a commercial success, thanks to the close management of Victor. There were about three hundred subscribers" ( Stamped with a National Character pp.58-59). Cf. Bennett, p. 5; cf. Reese Stamped With A National Character 36; cf. Sabin 2367; cf. Wood, p. 209.

        Forest Scene on the Lehigh (Pennsylvania)

      Paris, Coblenz and London, 1844. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Salathé after Bodmer, blindstamp. Matted, framed and glazed. In good condition. Visible sheet size: 14 7/8 x 21 1/8 inches. This peaceful view is from a drawing made on 27 July 1832 on the Lehigh River close to the town of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Bodmer and Prince Maximilian had met Lewis Saynisch, a German doctor, who accompanied them on several of their explorations of the area on the evening of their arrival in the town. On the afternoon of the 27th they visited his house to inspect his collection of scientific books. Later the three took a stroll along the Lehigh River past Moncasa Creek where Bodmer made a number of sketches, ably capturing the lyrical magic of the area. Karl Bodmer's paintings show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures.

        Autograph letter signed by Hudson 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. 3pp, plus integral address leaf. Folded sheet. (Short separations at folds, hole from opening costing a few words). Strong content letter between Hudson Bay Company factors on the fur trade and the Oregon Question. Ross writes: "...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..." 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 HBC), 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, then the entire region to the 54th parallel might as well be foresaken. Two years later, the Oregon Treaty was signed, setting the boundary between the U.S. and Canada as the 49th parallel.

        Four-language Ships Papers signed by President John Tyler and Secretary of State John C. Calhoun

      Washington, DC, 1844-1845. 21.5" x 16.25". "Party Printed Document Signed ""J. Tyler"" as President and ""J.C. Calhoun"" as Secretary of State, 1 page, 21.5"" x 16.25"". Washington, no date, but 1844-1845. Four-language Ships Papers signed in blank, not filled in. Blind embossed Seal of the United States, 2 inch diameter with serrated edge, affixed with red wax in the center, to the left of Tyler's large, dark signature. Slight fold separation at left and right blank edges. Usual horizontal and vertical folds, horizontal fold under Tyler's signature touching the lower stroke of the ""y."" Languages in four vertical columns: French, Spanish, English, Dutch. Fine condition.This document was signed in blank in Washington, D.C., by President John Tyler and Secretary of State John C. Calhoun to be sent to a United States port to be filled out, signed, and issued from there by the Collector of the Port. The Collector, or an assistant, would fill in the name of the ship and all the required information. John C. Calhoun served as Tyler's Secretary of State from March 6, 1844, until the end of Tyler's term on March 3, 1845. It is probable that when Ships Papers signed in blank by Tyler and Calhoun's successors, James K. Polk and James Buchanan, reached a Collector, he put aside the Tyler/Calhoun Ships Papers and replaced them with the newly signed documents, although the previously signed ones could also have been legally used.In part, ""Be it known, That leave and permission are herby granted to _____ master or commander of the _____ called _____ of the burthen of _____ tons or thereabouts, lying at present in the port of _____ bound for _____ and laden with _______ to depart and proceed with the said _____ on his said voyage_____ belong to one or more of the Citizens of the United States of America, and to him or them only..."""

        Plate CVIII Bachman's Hare. Lepus Bachmani, Waterhouse (natural size) The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America

      Philadelphia:: Audubon, J.J.,, 1844.. Imperial Folio Edition. Fine with rich original hand-coloring.. Plate CVIII. Lepus Bachmani, Waterhouse (Bachman's Hare, natural size). Original and rare hand-colored lithograph (22 x 28 inches, 558.8 x 711.2 mm) by JT Bowen after painting by John Woodhouse Audubon, for the Imperial Folio Edition of the Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America. Very Fine condition with bright and rich original hand-coloring. Expertly custom framed in conservation materials, as shown, by Lowry-James Rare Prints & Books, ABAA, ILAB. Framed size is 36 x 31 inches, 914 x 787.4 mm. The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America (Philadelphia c.1845-48) represents the culmination of a lifelong dream held by America's most prominent naturalist and visionary, John James Audubon (1785-1851). Following the completion of his magnum opus, the Double Elephant Folio Edition of Birds of America, c. 1824-38, Audubon was at liberty to pursue a project close to his heart, large scale portraits of all of North America's native animals. Audubon's effort to render America four-legged (thus quadruped) mammals in their natural settings pioneered the way for an entire culture of naturalist artists and engravers. Once the animals were placed within their native habitat, inspired by Audubon's classical composition and watchful eye, most subsequent naturalist painters rarely presented animals and birds void of a full botanical perch, landscaped setting, or woodland background. Very few, if any naturalist artists returned to the solo vignette so commonly found in most natural history works from the previous three centuries. Audubon's dream to complete this monumental work was made manifest through the artistic and clerical assistance of his two sons, John Woodhouse and Victor Gifford, as well as the Reverend John Bachman, who contributed the excellent text for the production. Today, the tale of Audubon's westward journey to hunt and gather skins and specimens and thus inspiration to complete the 155 paintings for the Quadrupeds is common enough. The story of how he sold his work through subscription format and created a smaller (Royal Octavo Edition) as a more democratic and affordable option to the production has been told religiously, and in great detail, by anyone reviewing these masterpieces once again. Yet through these critiques, America's premier ornithologist, painter and naturalist has gained his rightful place among the masters of Animal Portraiture, painters like Edwin Landseer and George Stubbs. Regardless of any criticism his artistic practices and personal affairs may have encountered, Audubon's legacy has enriched our understanding and appreciation of America's native species, both birds and animals. In addition, through Audubon's paintings we are offered the very first glimpses of the American landscape west of the Mississippi, as his work predates that of the Hudson River Artists. Although Lowry-James Rare Prints & Books has featured the monumental edition of Audubon's work since 1989, this new collection of plates is the strongest body of mammals we have has the good fortune to acquire. These plates have not seen the light of day, thus the coloring of each of the plates is strong and rich, hand-painted with a multitude of subtle colors which are often lost to fading. In a word, these prints are the finest Audubon animals available, and must been seen. (Blum, Picturing Nature, Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1993. Sabin 2367, Wood 208).

      Karlsbad (überwiegend), London u.a. bzw. ohne Ort, 1844-67 bzw. o. J. Zus. ca. 168 S., 8° bis 4°. „Lady William Russell (1793–1874) was the wife of Lord George William Russell and a notorious socialite. Elizabeth Anne was the only child of Captain the Hon. John Theophilus Rawdon (died 1808), the brother of Francis Rawdon-Hastings, 1st Marquess of Hastings. She married Russell on 21 June 1817. A beautiful and energetic cosmopolitan who had enjoyed a broad European education, Lord Byron praised her in „Beppo“ as one whose bloom could, after dancing, dare the dawn. However, her outspoken Tory sympathies won her few friends among her husband\'s Liberal circle. Henry Brougham, 1st Baron Brougham and Vaux described her as that accursed woman. She and Russell had three sons, all of whom she tutored at home, perhaps lending them a rather distinctive approach to life [...]. Benjamin Disraeli said in conversation, I think she is the most fortunate woman in England, for she has the three nicest sons“ (Wikipedia). - „[...] Im Hause der seiner Familie von Karlsbad her befreundeten Lady William Russel und mit deren später im öffentlichen Leben eine Rolle spielenden Söhnen Arthur und Odo verbrachte M. [Alfred Meißner] eine reizvolle Londoner season, durchwanderte zwei Wochen mit M.

Edition originale d'une grande rareté, du premier livre de Gobineau publié à compte d'auteur. « Le comte de Gobineau, dans son drame de jeunesse, Les adieux de Don Juan, Paris, 1844, s'appuyant sur le poème de Byron, met en scène une mère qui, trop tendre pour son fils, le gâte. Conduit par son analyse rigoureuse, Gobineau fait naître la première passion de Don Juan, d'une sensualité brutale, pour Donna Claudia la jolie femme de son frère Don Sancho, pauvrement doué par la nature pour l'amour. A la suite de cette aventure amoureuse tragique, Don Juan est obligé de quitter la maison paternelle et de satisfaire au loin son désir d'amour.

        A Visit From St. Nicholas" - great association copy inscribed by Clement C. Moore

      1844 - Signed book, Poems. New York: Bartlett & Welford, 1844. First edition, including A Visit from St. Nicholas, better known as 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. Inscribed by Moore on the half-title page to Janet Drake de Kay: "Mrs. De Kay with the respects of the author, Mar. 1846." Original brown boards, recent rebacked spine and paper spine label; minor rubbing to the extremities. With Janet's daughter Helen de Kay's ownership signature on the front endpaper above her husband Richard Watson Gilder's library bookplate. "'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house/Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse/The stockings were hung by the chimney with care/In hope that St. Nicholas soon would be there."A legendarily scarce volume with a distinguished provenance. Historical Background Janet Drake, through her distinguished poet-father Joseph Rodman Drake, gained admittance into the world of Knickerbocker writers such as Washington Irving, William Cullen Bryant, and Clement Moore. In 1833, Janet married Commodore George Coleman de Kay, perhaps best remembered for securing congressional support to take a government frigate to Ireland with famine relief supplies. Moore presented Janet with this copy of Poems in March 1846, around the time of the birth of her daughter Helena de Kay, who later penned her ownership signature in the volume. Helena became an accomplished artist and occasional model, and the unrequited love of the painter Winslow Homer. Helena helped found the Society of American Artists. She married Richard Watson Gilder, the editor of Century Magazine, whose library bookplate appears below Helena's signature.'Twas the Night Before Christmas was first published in the Troy Sentinel newspaper on December 23, 1823. Moore's authorship was first noted in 1837, in The New York Book of Poetry, edited by Charles Fenno Hoffman. Many years later, descendants of Henry Livingston, Jr. mistakenly convinced themselves that he was the author. As their case was disproven time and again, the family narrative kept evolving. In 2000, the Livingstonian arguments were marshaled by Professor Don Foster in a widely publicized book, Author Unknown. We are proud to have played a role in exposing many of Foster's counter-factual arguments, and uncovering previously unpublished Moore writings, in the New-York Historical Society and the Museum of the City of New York, that fully support Moore's authorship.Seth Kaller's essay, The Moore Things Change, was published in the Winter 2004 issue of the New-York Journal of American History. Clement C. Moore (1779-1863) was the son of Benjamin Moore, the second Protestant Episcopal Bishop of New York and President of King's College. Clement Moore graduated from Columbia University in 1798. The Moore family owned extensive lands in the Chelsea neighborhood, on the Hudson, and it was Clement's gift of some 60 acres of land in 1819 which made possible the establishment of the General Theological Seminary, where he himself taught Oriental languages, Biblical learning, and scripture interpretation from 1821 to 1850. An eminent lay theologian and scholar, Moore was the author of A Compendious Lexicon of the Hebrew Language, the first such work published in America. Moore lived not far from the new seminary (on present-day 23rd Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.
