      London: Henry Colburn, 1845-6 - 2 works in 6 volumes, large duodecimo. Original red cloth, spines lettered in gilt and decorated in blind, blind panels to covers, yellow surface-paper endpapers, edges untrimmed. Cloth variably darkened overall, a few additional marks, spines rolled, extremities lightly rubbed, wear to tips in some volumes, light fraying to spine-ends of Memoirs vols. 2 and 3, a short repaired nick to foot of the latter touching publisher's imprint, a small number of gatherings slightly proud, Memoirs vol. 3 sig. K torn along fore edge to no loss of text. A very good set. Lithographic frontispiece to each volume, hand-coloured in vol. 1 as issued, folding plan, wood-engravings to the text. First editions of the chief authorities for the life of the most extraordinary woman traveller of the 19th century, rare in the original cloth. A niece of William Pitt, Lady Stanhope (1776-1839) left England in 1810 with Charles Meryon, a young doctor she had engaged as her physician, travelling via Malta to Constantinople and thence to Egypt, where she was received with honours and pageantry by Muhammad 'Ali Pasha, before making a tour of the Holy Land and Lebanon and entering Palmyra at the head of a cavalcade of Bedouin and having herself crowned as Queen of the Desert: "No one really knew quite who Lady Hester was (was she perhaps the daughter of the king of England?) but everyone knew that she was a great personage and must be treated as such" (ODNB). In 1813 she moved into a former convent in the foothills of Sidon, Lebanon, and eventually Dar Jun, a remote spot high in the Lebanese mountains, becoming increasingly hermetic and developing an obsession with the occult, though for a time maintaining interest in the world outside and giving sanctuary to refugees during the civil strife which convulsed Lebanon in the 1820s and during Ibrahim Pasha's siege of Acre in 1831-2. Meryon had returned to England in 1817 but visited again in 1819, 1830 and 1837, receiving instructions on this last occasion to return to London once more to petition for the reinstatement of her pension, which had been rescinded owing to unpaid debts. As her health failed and she became increasingly unstable mentally, "her native servants and European attendants left one by one [and] when there was no one left to clean up her squalor and care for her, she walled herself up in Dar Jun and died, alone" (Robinson). There was not another account of Stanhope's life for 60 years, and Meryon's was never superseded as the sole eyewitness account of her remarkable career: "Despite their diffuseness the Memoirs make excellent reading Meryon describes with utmost minuteness her complicated oriental environment, her tyranny, and her interminable conversations with an almost Boswellian power of self-effacement" (DNB, cited after Blackmer). Arcadian Library 8517 and pp. 100-1; Blackmer 1117; Robinson, Wayward Women, pp. 57-8. [Attributes: First Edition]

        THE FOUR TRAITORS, WHO MOST INFAMOUSLY SOLD THEMSELVES TO THE DORRITES, FOR OFFICE AND POLITICAL POWER. LET US NOT REWARD TRAITORS, BUT WITH JUST INDIGNATION ABANDON THEM AS "SCAPE-GOATS," TO THEIR DESTINY- FOREVER

      [np 1845 - Illustrated broadside, 9-3/8" x 13". Attractively framed. Near Fine. "An illustrated broadside reviling four Rhode Island Whigs who broke party ranks to support a popular movement to free imprisoned radical Thomas Wilson Dorr. The broadside's author alleges political opportunism in the alliance of [left to right] Charles Jackson, Samuel F. Man, James F. Simmons, and Lemuel H. Arnold with Democrats to support a 'liberation' ticket in the spring elections of 1845. This notice, evidently published after the April canvass, laments the election of 'an obscure individual like Polk' and 'a pompous, self-conceited man like Jackson' as well as 'foreigners, ignorant, barbarous and uncivilized,' 'radicals, disorganisers and abolitionists assuming to be jurists' in general. The 'Four Traitors' are crudely caricatured. Jackson holds a proclamation of liberation, probably the act of June 1845 pardoning Dorr. Samuel Man is depicted as obese, sitting in a chair and holding an infant. Simmons thumbs his nose at Man, and his own coattails are in turn held by Lemuel Arnold." [Reilly] Reilly 1845-4.

        Die poetische Ukraine. Eine Sammlung kleinrussischer Volkslieder. Ins Deutsche übertragen von Friedrich Bodenstedt [Poetic Ukraine. A collection of folk songs from Little Russia. Translated into German by Friedrich Bodenstedt]

      Stuttgart und Tübingen: J. G. Cotta'scher Verlag, 1845. Small octavo (17.3 × 10.8 cm). Contemporary marbled boards; gilt title to spine; XII, 132 pp. Text block lightly resized to binding; light foxing throughout; tiny embossed private owner stamp; still about very good. First attempt to introduce a German readership to the riches of Ukrainian folklore and lyric poetry, and to its culture in a broader sense, with special attention given to the songs and history of the Cossacks. The work is also the first publication by Bodenstedt (1819-1892), a relatively little-known German writer, scholar, and translator of Russian literature, who introduced German readers to the works of Derzhavin, Batiushkov, Zhukovsky, Pushkin, Kol'tsov, Fet, and others. After studying philosophy and philology, he worked as a teacher in Moscow, where he became acquainted with the poet Vasily Krasov (1810-1854), who lectured him on the difference between Russian and Ukrainian folklore, and inspired him to undertake the present work without having spent time in Ukraine himself. Bodenstedt's translations are largely based on Mikhail Maksimovich's 'Ukrainskie narodnye pesni' (Moscow, 1834) and an earlier compilation of Ukrainian songs by Nikolai Tsertelev. After moving to Tbilisi, Georgia, in 1843, Bodenstedt was aided by Aleksandr Afanas'ev-Chuzhbinskii and Polish writer Tadeusz Lada-Zablocki. He was finally encouraged to publish the work by the German orientalist scholar and diplomat Georg Rosen (1821-1891). After Cotta in Stuttgart agreed to publish the work, Bodenstedt added a lengty introduction in the Romantic style: "Was ich hier gebe, soll nichts sein als eine kurze Berichtigung der irrigen Ansichten, welche allgemein in Deutschland uber den Ursprung und die Entwicklung des weitverzweigten Kosakensystems herrschen; zugleich mogen diese Blatter als Fuhrer dienen durch den duftigen Liedergarten, der sich in bunten, wilden, aber anmutigen Verschlingungen vor den Augen des Lesers ausbreitet." He presents thirty-three lyric songs and twelve Dumy, or sung epic poems, selected for their aesthetic beauty and significance for Ukrainian history. His preface states that "in no other country has the tree of folk poetry produced such magnificent fruits as among the Ukrainians." The preface also mentions that, should the work be well received, Bodenstedt planned to issue similar editions for Georgian, Armenia, Tartar and Persian folk songs. In Tbilisi he had met the poet Mirza Shafi, who introduced him to these languages and their respective literary traditions. With epigrams by Goethe and George Ellis. The book appeared in 750 copies, of which only 227 copies sold. Bodenstedt himself complained, in 1860, that copies were impossible to find, and it is likely that the publisher remaindered a large portion of the print run. See also: Richard J. Brunner and Oleksandr Bilous, "'Die Poetische Ukraine' von Friedrich Bodenstedt: Entstehungsgeschichte und eine Übersetzungsanalyse," in Naukovi zapysky, no. 126.

        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

      James Ackerman, 304 Broadway, cor.[ner] Duane St, New York 1845 - (21 3/4 x 15 3/8 inches). Letterpress title (verso blank), 1p. "To the American Public" (verso blank), pp.[5-]16 explanatory text. 25 hand-coloured lithographic plates after Catlin. Expertly bound to style in half red morocco and publisher's cloth boards with morocco label. Housed in a red morocco backed box Provenance: Edward Eberstadt (catalogue 127:113, pencil note on front endpaper); Frank T. Siebert (his sale, Sotheby's New York, 28 October 1999, lot 845) The very rare first American edition of Catlin's masterpiece: among the most rare and desirable of all American color plate books or western Americanum. This is only the eleventh known copy of the coloured issue of the American edition of the North American Indian Portfolio, according to William Reese's census of over 160 sets, and corresponds to Reese issue 6. Bennett states: "This book is of the most excessive rarity and worth several times the value of the more common British printing." 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). Catlin first published his North American Indian Portfolio. . in two issues in London in late November 1844. The first issue was hand-colored, the second had tinted plates. Both the London editions are now very rare, but they are known in roughly tenfold the number of this incredibly rare American edition, evidently published without Catlin's knowledge or consent in New York in 1845. It is a milestone in lithography in the United States. It was issued in a hand-colored edition on paper, in a hand-colored edition on card, and in a tinted edition on paper. Of the 160 copies of Catlin's work located in a census by William Reese, only sixteen were the American edition. Of the sixteen other located copies, half have the plates colored and printed on paper, as in the present copy. Only three American editions have appeared at auction since the late 1970s, while the London edition appears with some regularity. On a leaf after the titlepage, the publisher, Ackerman, proudly states that he is happy to prove that American work can be the equal of anything produced in Europe; his preface is given in full below. 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 to the London edition 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 also 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 also spent from 1837 to 1852 touring the United States, England, France and Holland with his collection of pain [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        TRAVELS IN NORTH AMERICA; With Geological Observations on the United States, Canada, and Nova Scotia

Illustrated with an impressive folding hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece of Niagara Falls and the adjoining countryside showing the rock strata in colours in Vol. I; large folding coloured geological map of the U.S. and Canada in Vol. II and five additional plates, three of which are folding and one coloured, and additional illustrations within the text. 8vo, in the publisher's original green cloth impressed with a botanical pattern in blind on all covers, the spines blind decorated and lettered in gilt. xiii, (1), 316; viii, 272 pp. An extremely fresh and bright set, a fine set, the cloth with no wear or fading, the text appearing generally as pristine and extremely clean, a little mellowing to the endpapers and title-page only. UNUSUALLY FINE FIRST EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT EARLY WORK ON AMERICAN GEOLOGY AND GEOGRAPHY. Lyell was an eminent British geologist whose work was especially important at this time because it had just been discovered that "a correct appreciation of the principles of geology became essential to the zoologist who would understand the relations between existing genera and species. It was felt that the physical changes in past times accounted in some way for the changes among organisms. The work of Lyell, and others led to the establishment of the science of paleontology and supported the biological studies by Darwin and A. Russel Wallace. This work is the product of scientific investigations throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, Ohio, and Nova Scotia. Along with his important geological, work these volumes contain his impartial observations on the American education system, economy, and even slavery and race relations.
