        An original design for a porcelain plate

      [Paris: 1845 or later]. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some light soiling, a small loss in the top right corner, and a 3" tear traveling from the left edge of the sheet into the left side of the image. 10 1/4 x 10 1/4 inches. 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."

Wilkes includes here the complete account by Peter H. Burnett of the celebrated overland emigration of 1843. "This and the Overton Johnson narrative published a year later, in 1846, are the only known contemporaneous accounts of the 1843 emigration published within a few years of the event. Burnett, whose narrative Wilkes publishes in full, was afterwards the first civil governor of California" - Streeter. The folding map shows the Oregon country and parts of British Columbia. This book is very rare, with Wagner-Camp locating only four copies.

        The Mysteries of London

      - London - G. Vickers, 1845 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce set of The Mysteries of London byGeorge William MacArthur Reynolds (1814 - 1879) a British author and journalist and a prolific writer of popular fiction. Illustrated with numerous woodcuts. Four volumes bound in two from the parts. The first series to volume one and the second series to volume two. The Mysteries of London is a penny dreadful or city mysteries novel begun by George W. M. Reynolds in 1844. Reynolds wrote the first two series of this long-running narrative of life in the seedy underbelly of mid-nineteenth-century London. Thomas Miller wrote the third series and Edward L. Blanchard wrote the fourth series of this immensely popular title. Reynolds had read Eugene Sue while in Paris and was particularly impressed by his novel Les Mystres de Paris. It inspired Reynolds to write and publish a penny part serial The Mysteries of London (1845), in which he parallelled Sue's tale of vice, depravity, and squalor in the Parisian slums with a sociological story contrasting the vice and degradation of London working-class life with the luxury and debaucheries of the hedonistic upper crust. An early socialist and a Chartist sympathiser, Reynolds had a genuine social conscience, and he contrived to stitch into the pages of his books diatribes against social evils and class inequities. Instalments were published weekly and contained a single illustration and eight pages of text printed in double columns. The weekly numbers were later bound in cloth covers with a fresh title page and table of contents and offered as complete works of fiction. After Reynolds quit The Mysteries of London, he began a new title: The Mysteries of the Court of London, which ran from 1848 until 1856. Previous owner's bookplates to front pastedowns. Condition: In a half morocco binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, smart but with slight wear to extremities, the odd mark, rubbingand stain to boards. Previous cloth reinforcement to hinges. Internally, generally firmly bound although slightly strained in places. Bright but with occasional spotting and handling marks, odd slight closed tears to gutter from with binding holes from parts. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        LES INDIENS IOWAYS DES MONTAGNES ROCHEUSES

      Epinal, France: Fabrique de Pellerin, [circa 1845].. Hand-colored engraving, 15 3/4 x 12 3/4 inches. Fine. Matted and framed. A rare French engraving of Ioway Indians brought to Paris in 1845 by George Catlin. Catlin, a showman as well as an artist, brought groups of Indians to Europe several times. In the summer of 1845 he led a group of Ioways to Paris along with his Indian Gallery, an adventure recounted in CATLIN'S NOTES OF EIGHT YEARS' TRAVELS AND RESIDENCE IN EUROPE.... The top panel of this print shows the twelve Ioways meeting with King Louis Philippe and the royal family. The Ioway delegation was led by Chief Miou-Hu-Shi- Kaou, and included men, women, and children (the youngest aged only two). Most of the nine lower panels are adapted from Catlin lithographs (re-engraved by Jean-Baptiste Vanson) and show Indian dances and celebrations, scenes of buffalo and bear hunts, an Indian funeral, and the visit of a medicine man. No copies are listed on OCLC, and we are unaware of any other copies appearing on the market. A rare and interesting print of Ioway Indians in France, showing the continued European fascination with Native Americans.
