        TEXAS: TEXAS. DRUCK UND VERLAG VON C. FLEMMING IN GLOGAU.

      - This engaging map depicts Texas shortly after it was admitted as state of the Union in 1845. Eastern Texas is divided into 30 numbered counties, while all major towns, rivers, and roads are depicted with impressive accuracy. In the lower left corner, is an inset map detailing Galveston Bay, Texas’s most important port. West Texas is shown to be only very sparsely settled, while the state’s modern western borders are demarcated (albeit with some inaccuracies, as the area had yet to be scientifically surveyed), with it’s former ‘Stovepipe" having been ceded to the Federal government in exchange for Washington paying off the massive debts that the Lone Star Republic accrued during its War of Independence. The map was published by Carl Flemming (1806 - 1878), a German publisher based in Glogau, Silesia (today G?ogów, Poland), who had earlier published a map of Texas while it was an independent republic. Flemming based his work on John Arrowsmith’s famous map of Texas. Flemming’s map was one of many works on Texas issued in Germany, where interest in the region was high, owing to significant German emigration and settlement there.

        Wi-jun-jon

      [London: Henry Bohn, 1845. Hand-coloured lithograph, deluxe issue cut to the edge of the image and mounted on card in imitation of an original watercolour, title label mounted beneath the image 'No. 25. / Wi - jun - jon. / an Assineboin chief. / (From Catlin's N.A. Indian Collection.)'. Sheet size: 17 1/2 x 12 1/8 inches. A fine image from the de luxe issue of Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', one of the most important accounts of native-American life Wi-jun-jon, an Assiniboin chief and distinguished member of his tribe, was chosen as delegate to a Washington meeting in 1832. Travelling down the Missouri by boat, he first met Catlin in St. Louis, and his portrait was painted in his exceedingly beautiful native costume. When Catlin next saw Wi-jun-jon, it was upon the Chief's return trip from Washington, where he had exchanged his clothing for a military suit of blue broadcloth with epaulettes. So impressed was Catlin by the transformation that he painted this double portrait showing the Assiniboin chief going to Washington and returning to his home. In the image of Wi-jun-jon on his return trip he is wearing a top hat (where previously he wore a feathered headdress), smokes a cigarette (where previously he held a long pipe), leans on an umbrella and cools himself with a French-style fan.

        An original design for porcelain

      [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."

        G.H.C. Melody et les Indiens Ioways. Comme ils ont été presentés à S.M. Louis Philippe, le 21 Avril, 1845

      Paris: Printed by Bertauts, 1845. Tinted lithograph. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and several skillfully repaired small tears and losses in the margins. An extremely rare lithograph depicting a group of Ioway Indians who traveled to Paris with George Catlin in 1845. This fascinating group portrait is an extremely rare lithograph depicting a group of Ioway Indians who accompanied the American painter George Catlin to Paris, in the winter of 1845. Following a successful debut in London, Catlin closed his celebrated Indian Gallery and retired to the country, where he worked on lithographs and text for his "North American Indian Portfolio". The arrival of a group of Ioway Indians, in the summer of 1844, revived Catlin's entrepreneurial enthusiasm and he immediately hired them to perform in London. After a brief tour through Ireland and Scotland, the troupe accepted an invitation to perform in Paris and Catlin gladly moved the Indian Gallery across the channel. Their debut was received with rave reviews and they were invited to perform for King Louis Philippe and the royal family at the Tuileries. Catlin's paintings were a huge success in Paris and they were admired by such notables as George Sand, Charles Baudelaire, Alexander von Humboldt, and Prosper Merimee. During the late summer of 1845 the Ioway troupe returned to America and were replaced by a group of touring Ojibwa Indians. This extremely rare lithograph is the only image to depict Catlin's Ioway's while they performed in Paris. It was published in two versions. One with a Boston imprint and the title in English including the names of the individuals depicted; the second with a Paris imprint and the title in French with no mention of the names. The troupe originally consisted of fourteen men, women, and children, but tragically two died while they were touring Ireland and Scotland. Consisting of three chiefs, five warriors, and six squaws the group was accompanied by their translator Jeffrey Doraway and by their promoter G. H. C. Melody. An invaluable record of Ioway history this rare print is a wonderful piece of early Americana. The names of the Ioway troupe are listed below: Mew-hu-she-kaw, White Cloud, first chief of the nation Neu-mon-ya, Walking Rain, third chief Se-non-ty-yah, Blister Feet; great medicine man Wash-ka-mon-ya, Fast Dancer No-ho-mun-ya, One who gives no attention Shon-ta-yi-ga, Little Wolf Wa-tan-ye, One always foremost Wa-ta-we-bu-ka-na, Commanding General, the son of Walking Rain, ten years old Jeffrey Doraway (Dorion, omitted) Ruton-ye-we-ma, Strutting Pigeon, White Cloud's Wife Ruton-we-me, Pigeon on the Wing Oke-we-me, Female Bear that walks on the back of another Koon-za-ya-me, Female War Eagle Sailing Ta-pa-ta-me, Sophia, wisdom, White Cloud's daughter Corsair, a papoose G.H. C. Melody.

        Antelope Shooting

      [London: Henry Bohn, 1845. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by McGahey, printed by Day & Haghe. Image size: 12 1/8 x 17 5/8 inches. A fine image from Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', one of the most important accounts of Native American life. "These beautiful and delicate little animals seem to be endowed, like many other 'gentle and sweet-breathing creatures', with an undue share of curiosity...; and the hunter who wishes to entrap them easily does so without taking the trouble of travelling after them. For this purpose, when he has been discovered by them, he has only to elevate above the tops of the grass, on the point of an arrow or his ramrod stuck in the ground, a little red or yellow flag, the lightness of which will keep it trembling in the wind, to which they are sure to advance, though with great coyness and caution; whilst the hunter lies close, at a little distance to the right or the left, with his rifle or bow in his hand... In the landscape view in this plate, (which... is a picture from Nature,) a striking resemblance is seen to the noble Park scenery in England; and the resemblance is forcibly heightened by the group that is dancing over it." Catlin summarized the Native American 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 also in the sympathetic understanding that his images constantly demonstrate. A selection of the greatest of images from this record were published in the North American Indian Portfolio in an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible. The present image is one of the results of this publishing venture and is both a work of art of the highest quality and a fitting memorial to a vanished way of life.

        Description of the American Electro Magnetic Telegraph : Now in Operation between the Cities of Washington and Baltimore. Illustrated by Fourteen Wood Engravings

      Washington DC: J. & G. S. Gideon, 1845. First Edition. Wraps. Good. First Edition. 24 pages. 8vo. 5 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches. Self wrappers (title page is page [1]). Previously bound, with stitch marks and glue remnants at the spine edge. Minor marginal loss to the base of the spine (one inch by 1/8 inch). Some overall browning to the paper. Staining to last page. Wraps. Published in 1845 by Vail after the successful test of a Congressionally approved experimental telegraph line from Baltimore to Washington DC in response to repeated requests for information. Separately paginated and with a new title page, the content of this pamphlet is also found on pages [9]-31 of "The American Electro Magnetic Telegraph : with the Reports of Congress, and a Description of All Telegraphs Known, employing electricity or galvanism." published in Philadelphia by Lea & Blanchard in the same year. Norman and Hooke's Origins of Cyberspace (#208), cites this pamphlet, noting that it was "probably" issued first. Both contain the same identical early printing of Morse code, one of the earliest printings of the 1844 revision of "American Morse". With a copy of each in hand, we did a quick review for obvious typographical or printing mishaps that might provide clues to precedence. A period was added after "figure 1" in the text on page 3. There is a possible break in the woodblock for the engraving of Figure 2, at the 9pm position with two line breaks. There is also a piece of punctuation (broken?) off - the period at the base of page 16's footnote. Finally, the pamphlet has a number of examples of muddied type - places where either the printer was lazy and didn't clean the block very well (leading to excess ink obscuring small bits of the engraving and/or type) or the block or type had become damaged. This is particularly obvious on Figure 9, where the 'Y' label that should be near the '12' label is obscured with ink. While not conclusive, these are hints that lead us to believe that the pamphlet may have been printed later, perhaps to keep costs down and remove what might have been perceived as an excess of history to those who wanted to use the code practically. In either event, an important work, and one worthy of inclusion in any collection related to History of Communication or the Telegraph. Shiers & Sterling (6-003) ; Origins of Cyberspace #208; Wheeler 1087 (illustrated); Not in the Ronalds Collection.

        AMERICAN WILD FLOWERS IN THEIR NATIVE HAUNTS...WITH TWENTY PLATES OF PLANTS, CAREFULLY COLORED AFTER NATURE; AND LANDSCAPE VIEWS OF THEIR LOCALITIES, FROM DRAWINGS ON THE SPOT, BY E. WHITEFIELD

      New York & Philadelphia, 1845. Original pictorial red cloth, ornately stamped in gilt, rebacked with original backstrip laid down, a.e.g. Cloth slightly soiled. Bookplate on front pastedown. One gathering loosening. Internally clean, fresh, and near fine, the plates brightly colored and unblemished. Illustrator Edwin Whitefield's own copy, with his ownership signature on the front free endpaper. Whitefield, one of the most famous and important view makers of the 19th century, provided the backgrounds which appear behind the flowers in the illustrations, showing scenes of the Hudson. Norton considers this one of the two most interesting color plate books illustrated by Edwin Whitefield. A manuscript letter by Whitefield to an unnamed recipient, written on a pictorial lettersheet and referring to a printing job, is also laid into this copy. Second edition, after the first of the same year. A beautiful American color plate book, with the plates interspersed with sentimental Victorian writings. This book, which combines hand-coloring with bits of full color printing, represents color printing during a transition to mass produced chromolithographic technology. The plates are signed by Lewis & Brown Co. "What makes this book interesting is...the fact that the plates show some touches of color printing; Lewis and Brown is one of the very early firms to produce chromolithographic illustrations for books" - McGrath. A beautiful book of floral illustrations, with a very significant and noteworthy provenance.

        Buffalo Hunt, A Surround

      [London: Henry Bohn, 1845. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by McGahey, printed by Day & Haghe. Image size: 12 1/8 x 17 5/8 inches. A fine image from Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio,' one of the most important accounts of native-American life. "After the preliminaries of the chase have been gone through... and the hunting party have reached the vicinity of the herd, scenes like the one represented in this illustration often occur. On one occasion I was invited by the Indians to ride out and witness their attack on a herd of buffaloes, near one of their villages on the Upper Missouri, in the summer of 1832: I sat on my horse and witnessed a scene of this kind; a mode of attacking the buffaloes which they call Wa-rahs-took-kee, a surround." Catlin summarized the Native American 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."
