        FLORE DES SERRES ET DES JARDINS DE L'EUROPE, ou descriptions des plantes les plus rares et les plus meritants, nouvellement introduites sur le continent ou en Angleterre.

      Gand -1880 1845 - 23 volumes, half dark morocco over marbled boards. 2015 plates numbered 1-2481, being 1464 single page colour plates of flowers, 464 double page colour plates of flowers, 7 quadruple page and 4 triple colour plates of flowers and 76 other uncoloured lithographed plates, with accompanying text. Text and plates tipped onto guards. A COMPLETE OR NEARLY COMPLETE SET OF THIS RARE PERIODICAL (the number of plates listed for this work seems to vary from catalogue to catalogue so it must be called complete in a loose sense as is often with periodicals- for example plate 1562 is duplicated in error). The double page plates are listed in the text as two plates and the quadruples as four. 11 plates are browned and approximately 10 plates are very slightly trimmed by the binder. Otherwise a good copy. The colour plates are hand coloured lithographs, or colour printed lithographs with the addition of some gum arabic. A PROFUSION OF STUNNING BOTANICAL PLATES - This great Belgium periodical, which matches, if not supersedes the other Botanical periodicals of the nineteenth century for its decorative plates, appeared for more than 35 years. The plants shown were from the nursery of van Houtte and were said to have been for sale therein. Many exotic plants figure and the work is especially notable for the craftsmanship of the lithographers Severeyns, Stroobant and de Pannemaeker. The periodical ceased shortly after the death of van Houtte who was the sole editor for the last eight years. A good set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Chainbearer, The; or The Littlepage Manuscripts

      1845. first edition. The Growing Corruption of Civilization"James Fenimore Cooper's The Chainbearer in the Original Printed WrappersA Remarkable SurvivalCOOPER, James Fenimore. The Chainbearer; or The Littlepage Manuscripts. Edited by the Author of "Satanstoe," "Spy," "Pathfinder," "Two Admirals, " etc. In Two Volumes. New-York: Burgess, Stringer and Company, 1845. First American Edition. Two octavo volumes (7 11/16 x 4 9/16 inches; 196 x 117 mm.). [i]-iii, iv-vi, 7-212; [1-3], 4-228 pp. Publisher's pale buff paper printed wrappers. The wrappers have been noted by BAL in three different states. No sequence has been determined and the order presented is arbitrary. The wrappers may have been printed simultaneously. In the present copy the wrappers on volume I are in State 'B' with inner front "Mrs. Ellis's Housekeeping"; inner back "History of All Christian SectsÂ…" and back wrapper with "The Great Book". The wrappers on volume II are in State 'A' with inner front "New and Beautiful Edition"; inner back "The Great Book" and back wrapper with "Cheap Books". Some light scattered foxing and or staining. Clean tear to lower margin of pp. iii/iv of preface in volume one. Lower wrapper of volume one with small piece (1 5/8 x 9/16 inches maximum) torn away from blank margin not touching any of the print on recto or verso, a couple of stains on the front and rear wrappers. A remarkable survival, generally bright and fresh, with no restoration whatsoever. Individually chemised and housed in a quarter red morocco over red cloth board slip-case.The first London edition, which preceded the American edition by about one month, was published in three volumes on November 22nd, 1845.The Chainbearer; or The Littlepage Manuscripts is the second book in a trilogy starting with Satanstoe (1845) and ending with The Redskins (1846). The novel focuses mainly on issues of land ownership and the displacement of American Indians as the United States moves Westward.Critical to the trilogy of these novels, is the sense of expansion through the measuring and acquisition of land by civilization. The title The Chainbearer represents "the man who carries the chains in measuring the land, the man who helps civilization to grow from the wilderness, but who at the same time continues the chain of evil, increases the potentiality for corruption." The central position of the "Chainbearer" allows Cooper to deal with the cultural lack of understanding Native Americans had of European concepts of land ownership. This in turn allows Cooper to critique ownership in general.Also, Cooper, like in many of his novels, focuses on the growing corruption of individuals in "civilization" as it expands. This Cooper attributes "an inherent principle in the corrupt nature of man to misuse all his privileges. . . . If history proves anything, it proves this." Two characters, in particular, represent this growing corruption of civilization, Andries Mordaunt, the chainbearer, and Aaron, known as "Thousandacres". The men represent different types of the civilization, Mordaunt as the usurper of old civilization and Thousandacres representing an older society which the new "civilization" means to usurp. Eventually this new civilization decides to embrace force in order to lay full claim on the land. This displacement of Native Americans by the ever expansionist Americans repeatedly becomes an issue for Cooper throughout the trilogy of novels. In so doing, Cooper presents a very strong critique of Americans and America. (Wikipedia).

      1845 - London, John Murray, first edition, two volumes, pp xii, 556; vi, 557-1064, folding map of Andalucia mounted on linen and bound at rear of volume one, folding map of Spain bound at rear of volume two, the two volumes bound by Hayday in a very civilized full calf with green labels lettered in gilt, and stamped on the front paste-down 'T. Bosworth, 215, Regent Street'. There are a number of ink and pencil notes in the margins, some of them signed J. F., and some of them quite detailed - particularly that relating to the gold coinage, thereby leading me to believe that the initials belong to John Fullarton. One or two of the notes are very slightly obscured in the gutter of the binding, suggesting that it was bound after annotation. John Fullarton (1780-1849), was an authority on currency, and was one of several correspondents who wrote offering Ford new and up-to-date information. [Robertson p.232] . Bindings a trifle rubbed with some dark spots on the boards, the map of Spain with a couple of closed tears on the folds, as usual, otherwise a very attractive copy with an interesting association.

        An original design for a porcelain plate

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing. A rare example of an original watercolour design for porcelain, by the Samson factory of Paris. This finished design was intended as a reference source from which the porcelain painters could work, using the design as a guide for the colours and image to be transformed from paper into fine porcelain. The French porcelain manufactory of Samson & Cie. was established by "Edmé Samson (b. Paris, 1810; d. Paris, 1891) at 7, Rue Vendôme (later Rue Béranger) in Paris. The intention of the firm was to reproduce ceramics from museums and private collections, and it claimed that all such reproductions would be distinctly marked to avoid confusion with the originals. In 1864, the factory was moved to Montreuil by Samson's son, Emile Samson (1837-1913). The range of wares included copies of 18th-century porcelain from such factories as Sèvres, Chelsea, Meissen and Derby, Chinese export-wares, especially armorial wares decorated with famille rose colours and mugs decorated with the Fitzhugh pattern, Delftware, Iznikware, maiolica and faience."

In part, ""…The increasing colored population of this State, deprived of the benefits of the system of Common Schools, and oppressed and opposed by their enemies; taxed to educate poor white children when they have any property, and when they have not, often unable to furnish means for their own education; coming, as many of them do, houseless, naked and ignorant, from slavery - their imploring cry to us is, 'come over and help us!' Without aid from abroad, your Committee cannot respond satisfactorily to these urgent calls. We desire at this time not only to assist destitute settlements in procuring and compensating teachers, but to have it in our power to aid a large and interesting class of colored youth, who are thirsting for knowledge, but cannot obtain the means necessary to give a finished education.""There is now established in this city (where, above all other points in our country, such an institution was called for, having a large resident colored population, and being so convenient to pupils from the Southern States, an institution such as your Committee have long earnestly desired, and although one year has not yet elapsed since it commenced operations, it already numbers one hundred and fifty pupils, and is still rapidly increasing, so that the rooms at present fitted up are too 'strait' for them, and a new building is about to be erected. Rev'd H. S. Gilmore (the Principal) has shown great and disinterested zeal in establishing it, and using endeavors to make it all that such an institution should be. He is aided in his duties by competent male and female teachers. The number of pupils, we have reason to believe, would be very greatly increased were your Committee able, through your well bestowed bounty, to render some assistance to the indigent who are worthy of aid, and very desirous to attend, but who have not the means of paying their tuition…""Disenthralled millions will soon be demanding instructors - we have youth, talent, institutions, all, every thing save the pecuniary means, to raise up a mighty host of educated men and women to go as messengers of light and love to the benighted, now held in cruel bonds, - when their shackles fall, and they stand up men confessed in the image of God. We desire to raise, to apply here and in different parts of the State, three or four thousand dollars for this cause this year…""The Cincinnati High School, a black high school, was established in Cincinnati in 1844 by Hiram S. Gilmore (1819-1849), a wealthy young British clergyman. As principal, Rev. Gilmore offered his students courses in English, Greek, Latin, art, and music.In Hearts Beating for Liberty: Women Abolitionists in the Old Northwest (Chapel Hill, N.C.: The University of North Carolina Press, 2010), Stacey M. Robertson writes: ""By 1840, the Ohio Female Anti-Slavery Society had renamed itself the Ohio Ladies' Education Society for the Free People of Color … This group would remain active for seven more years … Assuming that all abolitionist women supported their cause ('All ladies who are members of anti-slavery societies in this State, shall be considered members of this Society'), the group asserted that 'every candid mind may see that the degradation of the colored man at the north is one of the strongest bulwarks of slavery at the south.' The organization brought together women from starkly different antislavery positions. Evangelical abolitionists Mary Blanchard and Margaret Bailey, both married to leading anti-Garrisonian Cincinnati abolitionists, worked with such radicals as Lydia Irish, an outspoken Quaker. Although eastern Garrisonians would come to view the issue of black education as secondary to and distracting from the 'real' issue of emancipation, it offered Ohio women a tangible opportunity to act on their practical, cooperative abolitionist sentiment."""

      Mexico: Imprenta de la Vox del Pueblo, 1845. Modern three-quarter morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Bookplate on front pastedown. A bit of light foxing. Very good. A very rare and important work on California in the 1840s, by the former representative of the province in the Mexican national congress. Though modest in length, Castañares' work is a detailed and significant study of California's resources, Indians, settlements, missions, agriculture, mineral wealth, ports, presidios, and civic structure. He supports the preservation of the Pious Fund, and presciently warns that should Mexico not promote, care for, and defend California, it would fall victim to foreign occupation. "Castañares' account of the rich gold placers near Los Angeles, from which 2000 ounces of gold had been taken in 1843, is perhaps the first account in pamphlet form of mining operations in California. Bancroft devotes nearly a chapter of the fifth volume of his HISTORY OF CALIFORNIA to an account of this book, which he regarded as one of the principal sources for the period 1844-45" - Streeter.

        Die nordamericanischen Freistaaten. (Uebersetzung.)

      Druck und Verlag von C. Schünemann, Bremen 1845 - First edition. In blue paper. VIII, 326, (2) p. Guid book about the United States for German emigrants. Gives a detailed description of 27 American states that admitted to the Union until the date of the publication, and in addition about Iowa and Wisconsin. It also includes a forty-page description of the United States, the biography of George Washington and the translation of his Farewell Address, that is most likely the first European edition in German translation of the speech. The book starts with the description of the Thirteen Colonies that formed the United States in 1776, gives detailed information about their geography, demography, political and legislative system, history, and provides also an agricultural and economic overview. The second part is the description of the United States, its political, legislative system, its history and economy, it gives information about the United States Army, the immigration, and about the agriculture and religion of the US. This followed by the description of the other sixteen states, and the fifty-page biography of George Washington, that includes the German translation of the entire Farewell Address. We could not trace any earlier German translations of the text that was published outside the US. The author, Dudley Ambrose Mann (1801-1889) was an American diplomat and politician, the consul of the United States in Bremen in 1842, the time when its harbour served as the most important and busy emigrant harbour of Central Europe. Later Mann has held various offices in Hungary and Switzerland, in 1853 he was appointed the first ever Assistant Secretary of State, and from 1861 served as the commissioner of the Confederate States of America for Belgium and the Vatican. Sabin 44309; Howes US IANA M256. Partly untrimmed, uncut. With the stamp of the "Sozialdemokratischen Vereins, Bremen" on title page. With several newspaper clippings from 1881 and 1882 related to the text mounted onto pages, with no effect on legibility. Foxing throughout. Overall in very good condition.

Hier begann er auch seine naturwissenschaftlichen Studien zu intensivieren. "Nach der Weise seiner Zeit, welcher die Sammlung und Zusammenstellung des naturgeschichtlichen Materials das erste zu erstrebende Ziel war, beschränkte er sich bei seinen Untersuchungen hauptsächlich auf die äußere Oberfläche der Geschöpfe, entwickelte aber gerade nach dieser Seite hin eine unermüdliche und höchst anregende Thätigkeit. In der züricherischen physikalischen Gesellschaft bethätigte er sich. Er bemühte sich schon zu Anfang des Jahrhunderts eine Schweizerische naturforschende Gesellschaft zu Stande zu bringen, und als dieselbe 1815 wirklich ins Leben trat, war er eines ihrer thätigsten und ausharrendsten Mitglieder Er schuf im Laufe von 12 Jahren eine zoologische Sammlung, welche damals mit den bedeutendsten der Schweiz rivalisirte und die meisten an Reichhaltigkeit übertraf: sie wurde später an den Staat abgetreten, fand in der Hochschule (nachmals im Eidg. Polytechnikum) ihre Aufstellung, und ihre stätige Vervollständigung bildete für S., der die Conservatorstelle an derselben übernahm, bis in die letzten Lebensjahre Herzensangelegenheit" (O.
