        American Review: A Whig Journal. Volume II (2)

      Wiley & Putnam, New York 1845 - Hardcover. Almost all of Poe's writings were first published in the magazines, newspapers, and annuals of his time. This volume of the American Review, published by Wiley and Putnam and owned by George H. Colton, includes three first printings of works by Poe. They are the poem "Eulalie - A Song" (page 79); the story "The Facts of M. Valdemar's Case" (pages 561-565); and his unsigned survey "The American Drama" (pages 117-131). There is also a review of Poe's Tales, just published by Wiley & Putnam (pages 306-309). The review begins by noting that Poe was often a harsh critic of the work of many authors but continues by acknowledging the originality, quality, and probable popularity of Poe's stories. It continues with detailed discussions of some of Poe's most celebrated tales, including "The Purloined Letter," "Murders in the Rue Morgue," "The Mystery of Marie Roget," and "The Black Cat." Bound in three-quarter black leather with grey-blue cloth covered boards, spine with gilt titling and ruling and five raised bands. Light bumping to corners and scuffing to leather boards. Interior pages are clean with aging to page margins not affecting text. Small scuff to first paragraph of "The American Drama," not affecting legibility.

        An Archive of Autograph Letters Signed from Old Calabar: written by King Eyo Honesty II of Creek Town, and King Eyamba V of Duke Town, 1842-45

      (Calabar, Nigeria), 1845. Very Good. A small archive of manuscript documents consisting of four letters by Eyo Honesty II, one note and ledger sheet by Eyamba V, and one contemporary hand-colored engraving (of two African rulers and/or traders, each flanked by an African woman). Also included are two contemporary clippings, one of which has an engraved map of Old Calabar. Light creasing from the original folds, three letters have wax seal remnants, faint staining and scattered small tears to the corners of a few letters, overall very good or better.A very scarce cache of letters from the two most important Old Calabar towns involved in the transatlantic slave trade. Between 1720 and 1830 over one million slaves were embarked from Calabar, most on British ships. Although the British had banned the slave trade in 1808, slavery was not banned in all British territories until 1833, and traders from other nations continued to purchase slaves at Calabar until 1842. The letters date from the historically important moment when the two most prominent Efik kings at Calabar, Eyo Honesty II and Eyamaba V, had given-up their trading monopoly over the supply of slaves captured in the interior, and were replacing it with a plantation system for the cultivation of palm oil. By the 1840s Calabar had become the center for the export of palm oil to industrial Britain.In 1841 Eyo Honesty and Eyamba sent a letter to Queen Victoria, via a Liverpool-based palm oil trader, asking about new agricultural techniques, new European weaponry, and the Bible. This Liverpool-based trader most likely was Captain William Turner, who had developed a close working and personal relationship with both rulers. The archive includes three letters from Eyo Honesty to Captain Turner (and one to another English Captain), and Eyamba's note also references Turner.The letters document various aspects of the trading partnership and the friendship between Turner and the Old Calabar kings. In particular, they document the informal "trust trade" system derived from the slave trading days, whereby Turner and other European traders advanced manufactured goods (rum in particular) to Eyo Honesty and other rulers in exchange for palm oil, sugar, etc. Here are two representative excerpts from Eyo Honesty's letters to Turner. The first letter is not dated:"Captain Turner / I have send John Eyo Down as you say. But about trade you know what oil I owe you be more than what cask I got from you ... Now you stop me from send market ..." He describes difficulties with another English trader and concludes: "I will now take cask for [other] ship -- they will want oil that no be my palaver -- only you think I got other men to do more good than your[s] -- I tell you all I think you no believe -- I think all [ ? ] ship want to give me bad name and change my name Honest ..."The second excerpt is taken from a lengthy three-page letter from 1845, addressed to Turner at Liverpool: "Old Calabar 23 February the 1845":"Captain Turner / My old friend & brother for Egbo ... After next year I am very glad to see you for first ship -- I think river will come up good. Every body glad to see you & all men very well from Creek Town. Only Tom Eyo King Ebonys been sick long time -- And I loose my first Captain -- your Queen ... send his compliment to you and all your family ... I think my pocket a little big this time -- And you try best you can to make one Calabar merchant send me out 2 long Egbo Dance cane ... I hope you do that as good friend. Dont forget me -- also I have write you by plenty men -- I dont know if you got my letter or not."I Remain your old Friend / King Eyo Honesty head Trader / King Brass Egbo / And Eyamba Brass Egbo z Brother"The autograph note signed by King Eyamba V dates from 1842: it appears to be a record of an agreement, or "palaver" with Turner. An undated ledger sheet, also written and signed by Eyamba, appears to be a list of goods advanced to several Old Calabar chiefs, including among others: Duke Ephraim, Henshaw Duke, Mr. Young, Egbo Jack, John Duke, and Tom Eyo.Also during this period, in response to Eyo Honesty and Eyamba's 1841 letter to Queen Victoria, Turner served as intermediary between both rulers and leaders of the United Secession Church (a Scottish Presbyterian denomination), and helped the church to establish a West African mission at Calabar in 1842-43. They were the first Europeans permitted to settle ashore in Calabar on lands allocated by Eyamba in Duke Town and by Eyo Honesty in Creek Town.A historically important cache of letters documenting Eyo Honesty II's efforts to compensate for the loss of the slave trade by inviting Europeans into his lands to set up industries such as cotton, coffee, and sugar cane that would diversify the economy, in addition to expanding Old Calabar's production of palm oil.A detailed list (with partial transcriptions) follows:Four Autograph Letters by King Eyo Honesty II1.

        Report of the Exploring Expedition to The Rocky Mountains in the Year 1842, and to Oregon and North California in the Years 1843-'44

      Washington: Gales and Seaton, 1845. First Edition First Printing . Hardcover. Very Good+/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Published in Washington by Gales and Seaton, this is the senate version containing the additional astronomical observations. This book is clean, tight, square with good corners and unmarked. It contains 22 wonderful black & white plates. Six topographical drawings (for example Fort laramie) in the 1842 section and 7 such in the later section. In addition there are 3 Fossil Fern plates, 2 Fossil Shells plates and 4 Botany plates. It has 4 maps Bear Springs/river detail (p. 136), Bear Springs/River over view fold-out (with closed tears on two seams-no title) (p. 132), Great Salt Lake (p. 155) and Nueva Helvitica fold-out (p.146). The large fold out map is missing and there is no evidence that a pocket for it was included in this binding. This is not the cloth binding, but rather a three-quarter binding with brown leather on the corners and spine. The boards are marbled paper and the end papers are same lovely design. This book is in such good condition we wondered if it had been rebound at a later date, but there is no evidence for that. The spine states the title, in bright embossed gold, as "New Mexico Oregon & California". Since the New Mexico territory visited by Fremont became the property of the U.S. after the war in 1846, officially so in the Treaty of Guadalupe/Hidalgo in 1848 and Utah territory is created in 1850, we feel this is evidence this binding was contemporaneous with cloth binding. Also at the bottom of the spine, in embossed gold, is the name "W. K. Warford". We believe this might be a copy printed for Warford. Unfortunately we have not yet identified Warford. It is possible he is the printer or publisher, but we feel we would have been more successful identifying were he such. In any case this is a wonderful copy. The beautiful spine with its 4 raised bands and gold titles has some rubbing at the edges and a few very small scuffs. It also rubbed slightly at the corners, through in a few places. There's a couple of very minor bumps along the edge and a minor split at the top of the front joint. It has 693, mildly toned pages.

        Manuscrit d'une chronique d'Alphonse Karr pour le Diable à Paris.

      - 1 manuscrit autographe signé "Alph. K." 4 In-4 oblong [1845] Ratures et corrections. taches d'encre Manuscrit d'un texte d'Alphonse Karr écrit pour Le Diable à Paris, intitulé : "Les enfants aux Tuileries". [Le Diable à Paris - Paris et les Parisiens, moeurs et coutumes, caractères et portraits des habitants de Paris, tableau complet de leur vie privée, publique, politique, artistique, littéraire, industrielle, a été publié pour la première édition en deux tomes par Hetzel en 1845 et 1846. L'idée d'Hetzel est qu'un diable quelconque mais paresseux doit rendre compte de la vie à Paris et trouvera dans un tiroir des articles, contes études, essais etc. Pour concurrencer les Français peints par eux-mêmes, Hetzel fait alors appel aux mêmes auteurs que ceux qui lui avaient assuré le succès de Scènes de la vie privée et publique des animaux : G. Sand, Balzac, Nodier, Musset, Nerval, Karr, etc.]. Alphonse Karr tourne en dérision cette mode parisienne de se rendre aux Tuileries, non pour s'y promener, mais pour exposer les enfants élégamment habillés au regard de la foule ; mode qui conduit infailliblement à une crise narcissique. «[.]. Un petit garçon est un petit garçon. Si vous lui mettez des beaux habits, il les déchirera, il les salira, il faut qu'il courre, qu'il saute, qu'il s'amuse. Une petite fille n'est qu'une femme plus petite. Elle ne se transformera pas, elle grandira et voilà tout. Une petite fille de six ans est prête à tout. Rien n'est si dangereux et si ridicule que de les accoutumer ainsi à chercher les regards, à faire de l'effet, à vivre sur un théâtre. Ce ne sont plus des enfants qui s'amusent, ce sont des danseuses qui sollicitent les applaudissements. Plus tard, on continue cette éducation théâtrale. Le piano les accoutume à chanter en public comme elles y sautaient à la corde. Puis, quand elles sont entrées dans les devoirs sérieux du mariage, elles ne peuvent vivre sans spectateurs, sans succès, sans applaudissements. Le silence et l'ombre les ennuient, elles veulent paraître, elles veulent jouer un rôle, elles veulent concentrer les regards, faire parler d'elles, elles le veulent à tout prix. Il faut dire cependant que le plus grand nombre recule encore devant le moyen extrême de donner de l'arsenic à leurs maris [.]». [Ce texte a également été publié en 1874 dans La Promenade des Anglais]. Romancier et journaliste pamphlétaire. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Anatomical and Pathological Observations.

      Myles Macphail, 1845., Edinburgh: - Small 8vo. [4], iv, 127, [1] pp. 9 plates. Modern rebound two-tone red and grey library boards; author and title handwritten on cover. Some pages and plates partially uncut. INSCRIPTION BY BROTHERS JOHN & HARRY GOODSIR, THE YEAR OF HARRY'S SAILING ON THE ILL-FATED FRANKLIN EXPEDITION TO FIND THE NORTHWEST PASSAGE: Inscribed "Newport Esq.- with the authors' complts." Rubber stamps: "Property of the Medical Society City and County of Denver", and "Surgeon General's Library". Good. RARE. "John Goodsir's paper on "Centres of nutrition" anticipates to a certain extent the cell doctrine afterwards developed by Virchow (see No. 2299). Virchow dedicated the first edition of his Cellularpathologie to Goodsir. Goodsir's paper on the bone-forming properties of certain corpuscles found within osseous tissue represent the foundation of the study of osteogenesis, as distinct from descriptive osteology." â€" Garrison and Morton 2294.1. John Goodsir was a renowned Scottish physician. "Human anatomy, pathology and morphology formed his chief study. In 1840 he moved to Edinburgh, where in the following year he was appointed conservator of the museum of the College of Surgeons, in succession to William MacGillivray. Much of his reputation rested on his knowledge of the anatomy of tissues. In his lectures in the theatre of the college in1842-1843 he evidenced the largeness of his observation of cell-life, both physiologically and pathologically, insisting on the importance of the cell as a centre of nutrition, and pointing out that the organism is subdivided into a number of departments. R. Virchow recognized his indebtedness to these discoveries by dedicating his Cellular Pathologie to Goodsir, as "one of the earliest and most acute observers of cell-life." - Encyclopedia Britannica. Harry Goodsir was "one of the younger brothers of John Goodsir…Harry Goodsir qualified with the LRCS Edinburgh diploma in 1840, and was an anatomist and naturalist of the highest promise. He was Conservator of the Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh from 1843 until 1845, when he was appointed assistant surgeon and naturalist to the Franklin Expedition. This sailed to the Arctic seas under Sir John Franklin, to find the North-West Passage, but was lost. Its fate was never determined satisfactorily, although several subsequent expeditions attempted to do so". - Journal of Medical Biography, Vol. 12, ISS. 2, 2004. It seems very likely this is inscribed to George Newport, esq., F.R.C.S., F.L.S., President of the Entomological Society. Both Goodsir and Newport were members of the Royal Society.

        Report of the Exploring Expedition to The Rocky Mountains in the Year 1842, and to Oregon and North California in the Years 1843-'44

      Gales and Seaton, Washington 1845 - Published in Washington by Gales and Seaton, this is the senate version containing the additional astronomical observations. This book is clean, tight, square with good corners and unmarked. It contains 22 wonderful black & white plates. Six topographical drawings (for example Fort laramie) in the 1842 section and 7 such in the later section. In addition there are 3 Fossil Fern plates, 2 Fossil Shells plates and 4 Botany plates. It has 4 maps Bear Springs/river detail (p. 136), Bear Springs/River over view fold-out (with closed tears on two seams-no title) (p. 132), Great Salt Lake (p. 155) and Nueva Helvitica fold-out (p.146). The large fold out map is missing and there is no evidence that a pocket for it was included in this binding. This is not the cloth binding, but rather a three-quarter binding with brown leather on the corners and spine. The boards are marbled paper and the end papers are same lovely design. This book is in such good condition we wondered if it had been rebound at a later date, but there is no evidence for that. The spine states the title, in bright embossed gold, as "New Mexico Oregon & California". Since the New Mexico territory visited by Fremont became the property of the U.S. after the war in 1846, officially so in the Treaty of Guadalupe/Hidalgo in 1848 and Utah territory is created in 1850, we feel this is evidence this binding was contemporaneous with cloth binding. Also at the bottom of the spine, in embossed gold, is the name "W. K. Warford". We believe this might be a copy printed for Warford. Unfortunately we have not yet identified Warford. It is possible he is the printer or publisher, but we feel we would have been more successful identifying were he such. In any case this is a wonderful copy. The beautiful spine with its 4 raised bands and gold titles has some rubbing at the edges and a few very small scuffs. It also rubbed slightly at the corners, through in a few places. There's a couple of very minor bumps along the edge and a minor split at the top of the front joint. It has 693, mildly toned pages. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Shipwrecked Orphans: A True Narrative of the Shipwreck and Sufferings of John Ireland and William Doyley, Who Were Wrecked in the Ship Charles Eaton, on an Island in the South Seas

      S. Babcock, New Haven 1845 - First American edition, second issue (with Preface dated 1845). Wood-engraved title vignette and border, 8 wood-engraved plates. 64 pp. 12mo. Shipwrecked in the Torres Strait. Early American chapbook printing of this first-hand account of the wreck of the Charles Eaton off the north coast of Australia and the subsequent capture and massacre of most of the survivors. One of the earliest juveniles to be set in Australia - though the gruesome account of murder and cannibalism hardly makes it suitable for young readers. The Charles Eaton set sail from London in 1833 with a crew of 22 and 30 passengers, most of whom were children from the Emigration Society. After the ship was wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef at the entrance to the Torres Straights, the majority of the survivors escaped on two rafts. One of the rafts arrived on a nearby island ("Boydan"), where the survivors endured days of torment by the unfriendly natives. The islanders eventually clubbed to death all but two of the survivors, sparing William Sexton and John Ireland, who narrates the events. The two were sent to another island where they were reunited with the two young sons of Captain William Doyley of the Charles Eaton, the rest of the survivors having been murdered. Ireland and William Doyley were later traded for two bunches of bananas to natives of Murray Island, where they spent several years. They were taken in by one Dupper and his family and adopted the language and dress of the natives. After several years of life among the aborigines of Murray Island, and several missed opportunities to contact European ships, Ireland and Doyley were rescued by Captain Charles Morgan Lewis of the Isabella.Ireland's account was first published in London 1838 and in the first American edition by Babcock in 1845. This second issue has the Preface dated 1845 (opposed to 1844 in the first) and a different cover design. A stunning, fine copy. Hill 869 (Preface dated 1844); not in Huntress. Provenance: John H. William (contemporary inscription, "John H. William's Book. Presented by his uncle H. Williams") Publisher's yellow wrappers printed in green. Fine Wood-engraved title vignette and border, 8 wood-engraved plates. 64 pp. 12mo First American edition, second issue (with Preface dated 1845). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Headlong Hall and Nightmare Abbey (First American Edition)

      NY: Wiley and Putnam, 1845. First. Three-Quarter Leather. Tan three-quarter leather with raised hubs over marbled paper-covered boards, black leather spine label lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers. Small 8vo. Somewhat unusually, the title page states "First American Edition" under the main titles; the author's name, however, does not appear. 172 pps. A tight copy, rubbed about the edges and gutters and somewhat scuffed along the spine strip. Foxing to the blanks and very occasionally in the text. Still a perfectly acceptable copy. "Headlong Hall" was Peacock's first novel, originally published in England in 1815. Set at a Welsh country manor, it is peopled by a set of characters, each embodying a particular intellectual obsession and is replete with comic and satirical elements. "Nightmare Abbey" (originally published in England in 1818), was Peacock's most famous and enduring work, filled with gothic motifs like shadowy manor houses with secret rooms and sliding panels. In point of fact, the book is a series of satirical romances poking fun at some the major figures of the Romantic Movement; Byron appears as Mr. Cypress, Coleridge (Mr. Floskey) and Shelley (Scythrop Glowry).

        Henry Clay

      January 1, 1845. Broadside: Carrier's Address to the Patrons of the Daily American Citizen, January 1, 1845, one page, 12" x 19", with a decorative border. A 19 paragraph prosaic tribute to the events of the prior year with much sentiment towards Henry Clay who lost his final bid for the presidency in 1844. In that year Clay was nominated by the Whigs against James K. Polk, the Democratic candidate. Clay lost due in part to national sentiment for Polk's program "54º40' or Fight" campaign which was to settle the northern boundary of the United States with Canada then under the control of the British Empire. Clay also opposed admitting Texas as a state because he felt it would reawaken the Slavery issue and provoke Mexico to declare war. Polk took the opposite view and public sentiment was with him, especially in the Southern United States. Nevertheless, the election was close; New York's 36 electoral votes proved the difference, and went to Polk by a slim 5,000 vote margin. Liberty Party candidate James G. Birney won a little over 15,000 votes in New York and may have taken votes from Clay. Very light scattered foxing, otherwise clean and in fine condition. Ideal for display.
