Gregg, Josiah
New York: Henry G. Langley, 1844. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (with only New York in imprint), complete with large folding map. One of the most valuable and comprehensive sources for understanding pioneer life in the Great Plains and Southwest. The large folding map is the first to display the Staked Plains of Texas. Hailed as a cartographic landmark, it includes the locations of forts, military roads, and trading posts. It also identifies the Oregon Trail and Native American settlements, and traces the routes of the earlier explorers Boone, Long, Pike, and Cooke. Convinced that a journey west was necessary to restore his health, Josiah Gregg, in 1831 set out from Missouri on the first of what was to become eight journeys across the prairies. An acute observer, Gregg took careful notes of the geography and geology of the Southwest, and the attitudes and culture of the people (including particularly valuable insights into the Indians of Texas and New Mexico). Over a decade later, "Gregg began compiling his travel notes into a readable manuscript and in the summer of 1843 went to New York to secure a publisher. His Commerce of the Prairies, which came out in two volumes in 1844, was an immediate success. It went through two new editions in 1845, later a fourth and fifth edition, and in 1857 appeared in a sixth edition under a different title. The book, which also had a large sale in England and was translated into French and German, remains the cornerstone for all studies of the Santa Fe Trail" (H. Allen Anderson, Handbook of Texas Online). New York: Henry G. Lang … [Click Below for Full Description]

Henry Clay
In a letter to Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, he writes, “In spite of all my efforts, very few glimpses or light and hope break through the darkness of the gloomy future. I pray God that my fears may not be realized.” He asks for the mercy of God on the nation, and expresses disappointment and fatalism at his election loss “This is a world of trial and suffering, and ought you not to bear your full share for the sake of our common Country?” In April of 1844, President John Tyler submitted a treaty for the annexation of Texas as a slave state. This aroused opposition in the North, where adding additional slave states was anything but popular, and excitement in the South, which saw a golden expansion opportunity. The Whig Party, which had both a northern and southern wing, faced the specter of a split that would render it ineffectual. Its leader, Henry Clay, denounced the Tyler annexation bill and predicted that its passage would provoke a war with Mexico, whose government had never recognized Texas independence. Clay underlined his position, warning that even with Mexico's consent, he would block annexation in the event that substantial sectional opposition existed anywhere in the United States. He would not pit section against section over slavery. So in the 1844 presidential election the Whigs would need to stand squarely against acquiring a new slave state and be content to restrict their campaign platform to less divisive issues such as internal improvements and national finance. On May 2, 1844, the Whig National Convention in Baltimore nominated Clay to … [Click Below for Full Description]

"First published as part of the Encyclopaedia Metropolitana (1818-37), it consisted of a great many illustrative quotations drawn from literature, but with relatively few and brief definitions … Richardson's approach was based on the notion that quotations alone, if sufficient in number, could serve to elucidate 'true etymological meaning.' He went far beyond Johnson in collecting quotations, beginning at the fourteenth century [Johnson went back only to the end of the 16th century] … Richardson sought by his vast collection of quotations to justify the preposterous theory of John Horne Tooke that each word had a single immutable meaning. In his own work, each word and its derivatives were given one etymology and one meaning. His etymologies were as preposterous as his theories, but his dictionary was of great interest to lexicographers because it foreshadowed the historical collections of quotations that were later to form the basis of the Oxford English Dictionary" (Landau, Dictionaries, p. 66). Based on the "historical principle" of lexicography, this work formed an important link between Johnson and the O.E.D. Kennedy 6437.

Paris, Maison (Lyon, Imprimerie Louis Perrin), 1844 ; in-8, broché ; (4), VII, (1 bl.), 292 pp., (1) f. d'errata, couverture beige très clair. EDITION ORIGINALE (Sirand, 2368), imprimée sur un papier de mauvaise qualité qui présente pas mal de rousseurs claires qui ne gênent pas du tout la lecture. Ancien officier de cavalerie dans les lanciers polonais, né à Saint-Rambert en Bugey, l'auteur fut condisciple de Lamartine au Collège de Belley et resta son ami ; engagé à 18 ans, il fit son service dans les vélites-chasseurs de la Garde Impériale, fit les campagnes de 1809 en Autriche, assista aux batailles de Ratisbonne, d'Essling, de Wagram, fut versé au 8e de lanciers polonais, colonel Lubienski avec qui il fit toute la campagne de Russie et réussit, après de grands dangers, à en revenir. Dans cet ouvrage, il tente de dresser un bilan honnête du règne de Napoléon dans tous les domaines et sans laisser les fautes et les échecs dans l'ombre. Couverture un peu défraichie avec quelques déchirures restaurées avec soin ainsi que le dos fendu et recousu avec discrétion ; bon exemplaire dans l'ensemble. L'ouvrage est très rare et, broché, tel que paru, encore plus.

CHASSERIAU (Frédéric).
1844. Manuscrit autographe, avec ratures et corrections. Petit in-folio (32,3 x 21 cm) de (6) ff.; demi-percaline rose, plats de papier marbré, titre doré au dos (reliure fin XIXe ou début XXe, signée Franz). Minute autographe, de la main de Chassériau, du discours prononcé par le baron de Mackau, ministre de la Marine et des Colonies, aux obsèques du vice-amiral Lalande, décédé le 19 mai 1844.Il retrace les principales étapes de la carrière du marin. Né au Mans en 1787, Julien Pierre Lalande entra dans la Marine en 1803 : "[Il] se distingua dans le combat acharné à la suite duquel les frégates l'Italienne, la Calypso & la Cybèle, capitaines Jurien, Jacob & Cocault, attaqués le 24 février 1809 dans la rade des Sables-d'Olonne, se firent abandonner par une division anglaise de 3 vaisseaux, 2 frégates & 1 corvette aux ordres du vice-amiral Stopford..." (f. 3). Il est ensuite question de sa campagne aux Antilles en 1814, puis de son activité de 1822 à 1843, lorsqu'il commanda des divisions navales ou des escadres. Elu député, Lalande continua à s'intéresser aux intérêts de la Marine et resta fidèle au Roi.Frère du peintre Théodore Chassériau, Frédéric Victor Charles Chassériau (1807-1881) était à l'époque chef de cabinet du ministre de la Marine et des Colonies. Partisan de l'émancipation des esclaves, il écrivit un Précis de l'abolition de l'esclavage dans les colonies anglaises (1840-1841), ainsi que plusieurs ouvrages sur l'histoire et l'organisation de la Marine. Il est aussi l'auteur de nombreux articles biographiques sur des marins célèbres. Ses travaux lui valurent le t … [Click Below for Full Description]
