        Manuscript on paper, in English. "Description of Upper California.

      [Monterey? Folio (31 cm; 12.25"). [14] ff. (2 ff. wrappers, 2 ff. blanks, 10 ff. of text).. ca. 1846] The original manuscript of this 1828 report by José Bandini resides in the National Archive of Mexico and a near contemporary copy rests in the Cowan Collection of the Bancroft Library; both, of course, are in Spanish. Bandini, a native of Andulacia, Spain, who settled in California in about 1818, was a cultured, well-educated, and forward-thinking leader of the Californios, and he seems to have prepared his well-written and detailed essay for the new republican authorities in Mexico City in hopes of convincing them to aid the territory to grow and prosper, to the benefit of the Californios and the Mexican nation as well. He was also the father of Juan Bandini, of whom more later. The cataloguer at the Bancroft Library describes their Spanish-language manuscript copy in these terms: "Draft of report describing Alta California, its government, presidios, missions, Indians, settlements, ports, trade, roads, revenue, flora and fauna, and topography. With recommendations for its future development, notably the opening of the port of => San Diego to foreign vessels." The contents are clearly the same in this present translation, which was made probably between 1838 and 1846 from one of a few Spanish-language manuscript copies of the Bandini report that circulated in California in the 1830s and 1840s. Who made the translation is not known, but it is highly likely that it was made for Thomas Larkin (1802?-58), an early-arrived American settler in Alta California (April 1832), a signer of the original California constitution, and the first and only U.S consul to the California Republic. The information in Bandini's report would have been powerful ammunition in Larkin's reports to Washington encouraging American interest in California and its settlement by Anglo-Americans. Despite the importance of the information contained in Bandini's account of California in the period to ca. 1830, it remained unpublished until 1951, when the Friends of the Bancroft Library published a transcription of the Spanish and a translation into English. => This present translation remains unpublished still. Curiously, while Hubert Howe Bancroft was able to track down and acquired the manuscript history of California written by José Bandini's son Juan ("Apuntes para la historia de la Alta California desde el ano de su fundacion en 1769 hasta el ano de 1845"), he betrays no knowledge in his own history of California of José's work. Provenance: The Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Written in a clear secretarial hand on wove paper watermarked "Casa de Vall," using sepia ink, now faded but evenly so and still readable. Outer wrappers tattered and bug-stained. Document folded three times as to fit in a a pigeonhole storage box; paper somewhat relaxed and flattening, but still notably wavy. Now in a quarter blue morocco clamshell case.

        Daguerreotype Portrait of Baltus Stone

      [Philadelphia] 1846 - He Fought with George Washington: Amazing Daguerreotype of a Revolutionary Soldier born in the 1740s. Hand-tinted quarter plate daguerreotype, blue paper mat, cased, contemporary manuscript laid over the case lining stating: “Baltus Stone, Revolutionary Pensioner of the United States. Born October 1744. Signed his receipt for his Pension at the Philadelphia agency by making his mark. March 5, 1846. Aged about 101 ½ Years.” This remarkable portrait of Revolutionary War veteran Baltus Stone is one of the very few daguerreotypes of a person who had lived in colonial America. Few Americans born before 1750 had their likenesses captured by the new medium of photography, which came to America in 1839. The precise date of Stone’s birth is uncertain. The inscription in this case gives it as 1744, while his obituary gives the year 1743. Stone’s pension application of 1820 states that he was then sixty-six, suggesting a birth year of 1754. The Copes-Bissett family Bible, which records the family of Stone’s presumed daughter Hannah, gives the year 1747. In any event, Baltus Stone is one of the very earliest-born people to be photographed. The earliest competitor we have seen cited is a John Adams born in Worcester in 1745. Maureen Taylor’s The Last Muster: Images of The Revolutionary War Generation (2010) reproduces portraits of only two men born as early as that decade, in 1746 and circa 1749. Another candidate is the African-American slave Caesar, with an uncorroborated birth year of 1737, whose daguerreotype is in the collection of The New-York Historical Society. Stone died just months after sitting for this daguerreotype. His October 1846 obituary states: ‘The venerable Baltis [sic] Stone, well known in Southward [presumably Southwark, South Philadelphia] as the oldest inhabitant, & a veteran of Revolutionary times, died on Thu. Last. At an early age the dec’d entered the army as a rifleman, along with his father, who sealed his devotion for his adopted country with his life’s blood. Baltis Stone was with Washington in every campaign of the Revolutionary struggle, & witnessed the battles of Bunker Hill, Trenton, Germantown, Red Bank, & others, & yet escaped without receiving a wound. He has received a pension from Gov’t, as a reward for these services, for many years. He was 103 years & 16 days old at his death. He was able to walk, supported by his staff, until within a few months past” (National Intelligencer, 27 October 1846). Stone’s official pension file reveals the obituary’s embellishments. According to that file, Stone enlisted as a private in the Pennsylvania Rifle Regiment. He saw action in the Battle of Long Island (August 1776). Captured by the British, he was freed in an exchange at the end of his enlistment period. By late 1777 Stone had reenlisted as a wagoner—possibly with Philadelphia’s First Battalion, City Militia—and subsequently saw action at Brandywine (September 1777) and Germantown (October 1777). Stone first applied for a veteran’s pension in June 1818, after the passage of the Act to Provide for Certain Persons Engaged in the Land and Naval Service of the United States in the Revolutionary War. Stone was apparently required to reapply for his $8 per month pension in 1820, as the file also contains a deposition from that year. Stone declared at that time, “I have no property of any description, am by occupation a day labourer, but from decrepitude and general infirmity am unable to labour. I have one daughter married with whom I reside and I am in such indigent circumstances as to be unable to support myself without the assistance of my country.” This tremendous daguerreotype of an ancient Revolutionary War veteran virtually transports us to another era in the nation’s history, before the United States of America even existed.

        Island of PHILAE on the nile [Showing the Temple Compound at Sunset, Being an Original Hand-Coloured Lithograph From] THE HOLY LAND, SYRIA, IDUMEA, ARABIA, EGYPT AND NUBIA

      London: F.G. Moon and Co., 1846. From the Standard Folio First Edition, limited to 500 sets only. A single original hand-coloured lithographic plate drawn on stone by Louis Haghe after David Roberts' paintings done on location in 1838. Printed on a half folio sheet 17" x 15", the captioned image, is 14" x 10", now presented in cream mounting boards 21" x 17" glazed behind clear mylar. Beautifully hand-coloured to the highest standards of the time. An example in excellent condition, clean, fresh, beautifully preserved. FROM One of the most desirable of all travel and COLOURplate books. A very beautiful image of the the Island of Philae from the Nile at Sunset. In the foreground are reeds and a sailboat, behind which can be seen in near silhouette the Temple of Isis on the island. Philae was accounted to be one of the burying-places of Osiris, and was held in high reverence both by the Egyptians to the north and the Nubians to the south. It was deemed profane for any but priests to dwell there and was accordingly sequestered and denominated "the Unapproachable." This is a view now un-viewable to modern eyes. Due to decades of constant flooding of Philae after the construction of the Aswan Low Dam every building was dismantled into about 40,000 units, and then transported to higher ground on the nearby island of Agilkia. The project was completed in time for the 1970 construction of the the Aswan High Dam. We have a good number of impressive images from the Standard Folio Edition of this classic work available for purchase. As well as many views of Egypt we also have available, views of Nubia, Petra, Sinai, the Jordan, Tyre, Sidon and Baalbec. Please inquire for further details. In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast...that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest.

        Charles Dickens offers a dramatic quote from The Old Curiosity Shop on the death of Nell Trent

      n.p., May 29, 1846. 3.5" x 4.5". "Autograph Quotation Signed, ""Charles Dickens,"" 1 page, 3.5"" x 4.5"", [n.p.], May 29, 1846. Light horizontal fold, mounted to a 5.5"" x 5"" sheet, overall fine.A superb quote from his 1841 novel, The Old Curiosity Shop, on the demise of central character, Nell Trent: ""'Dear gentle, patient, noble Nell was dead!'?""" Dickens accomplished this quote only two days before he departed England with his family for an extended trip in Switzerland, where he would begin work on Dombey and Son (1846-48). Dickens quotes from major works are very scarce. The death of little Nell is considered to be among the most important death scenes in all of Victorian literature. A similar quote exists on the market priced at $25,000!"

        Comprehensive Collection of Iowa Territorial Laws, 1839 - 1846]

      Dubuque, Burlington, and Iowa City 1846 - Nine volumes, publication details and pagination in the listing below. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Minor shelf wear, some chipping to labels. Small ink library stamp and ink ownership inscriptions on titlepages, all but one volume trimmed close, minor marginal staining to a few volumes, light foxing. A comprehensive run of Iowa territorial printings including the extra sessions for July 1840 and June 1844. Iowa was admitted as a state in December 1846. The "Statute Laws of 1839" is an important title, as it is the first legal work printed in Iowa. The works included here are as follows: 1) The Statute Laws of the Territory of Iowa, Enacted at the First Session of the Legislative Assembly of said Territory, Held at Burlington, A.D. 1838-'39. Dubuque: Russell & Reeves, Printers, 1839. [2],597,[1]pp. Small triangular hole in the titlepage and following leaf, some tiny tape repairs to the next dozen leaves. This is essentially the first legal code for Iowa and the Nebraska, Dakota, and Montana territories. Issued as the first collected Iowa laws, it became famous as "Old Blue Book," which was adopted to serve for many years as the law of all the country west of the Missouri to the Rocky Mountains between the 42nd and 45th parallels. Included is the Northwest Ordinance, the act to establish the territorial government of Iowa, and other resolutions and acts of the Territory. This was the second book printed in Iowa Territory, preceded only by a volume of the Wisconsin legislature, printed in Burlington in 1838, when that legislature was forced to temporarily relocate.

        Circular, of the High Council. To the members of the Church of Jesus Christ op [sic] Latter Day Saints, and to all whom it may concern

      [Nauvoo], [1846]. Broadside [30.5 cm x 25 cm]. Fifty-two lines in three columns, within a decorative floral border and printed on cream paper. Near fine. Horizontal fold near the center This is the Mormon Church's official announcement that they intended to leave the Midwest and America, and make their home "in some good valley in the neighborhood of the Rocky Mountain." This announcement marks the beginning of the Mormon colonization of the west. This work also restates the Saints patriotism in the face of great injustices. According to Crawley: "By the end of 1845 the Mormons had familiarized themselves with the reports of Benjamin Bonneville, John C. Fremont, Charles Wilkes, and Landsford W. Hastings. During November and December the 'Times & Seasons' spoke of the Pacific coast as the destination of the Saints, California, Oregon or Vancouver. But uncertainty persisted as late as December 26, when Brigham Young wrote to Sam Brannan that 'we have not determined to what place we shall go.' Circular of the High Council shows that by mid-January the Great Basin was being focused upon, at least as a temporary location." Uncommon. Flake/Draper 1338. Crawley 296.

        A History of British Fossil Mammals, and Birds.

      John van Voorst. 1846 - FIRST EDITION. Large 8vo. Half title, folding table, woodcut illus., 4pp cata. (Dec. 1845) in smaller format. A bright clean copy. Uncut in orig. olive-green pebble-grained cloth; spine sl. faded with faint mark to lower edge. A near fine copy. Richard Owen, 1804-1892, was a renowned but controversial English Paleontologist who was compared favourably with the naturalists Georges Cuvier and Friedrich von Humboldt. In his role as Superintendent of the British Museum's Departments of Natural History, Owen was influential in campaigning for the establishment of a dedicated natural history museum, which was eventually opened in South Kensington in 1881. Fiercely ambitious and vicious in temperament, he was alienated from the scientific world, especially after his outspoken criticism of Charles Darwin?s theory of evolution. This volume was part of a uniform series of works on zoology published by Van Voorst in a large and attractive 8vo format. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE COUNT OF MONTE-CRISTO.

      New York:: Burgess, Stringer Company,. 1846.. First U.S. edition. Two volumes, as issued, newly rebound in one volume. Being one of two editions published in America in 1846. The other was published in Boston; priority not established (though we believe this to be the first--see below). This famous tale of revenge and retribution, of which the publisher said "his African blood is warm, and in his pages we accordingly discover the glowings of a heart gushing with feeling....," was inspired by Dumas' own Haitian-born father, an enslaved black man. Both of the American editions are based on the Chapman & Hall London edition of the same year, which was also an unattributed translation with illustrations by M. Valentin. The London edition had 20 illustrations, while this U.S. edition has only 12, which is all that are called for [Rusty Mott of the bookselling firm Howard S. Mott, Inc., kindly pointed out to us an 1847 ad in Marguerite Blessington?'s MARMADUKE HERBERT for this book; the ad states, "The work is published in one large Volume, likewise in two Volumes:--in either form it is sold at One Dollar, accompanied by Twelve splendid engravings"]. The Boston edition (with the same text) was issued in four volumes in wraps by H. L. Williams. We believe this Burgess, Stringer edition may be the true U.S. first edition, as both the F. W. Reed bibliography of Dumas (London: Neuhuys, 1933) and the Douglas Munro's BIBLIOGRAPHY OF WORKS TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH TO 1910 (NY: Garland, 1978) list this edition as the first American and make no mention of the Williams edition. In fact, Reed indicates in his bibliography that an American reprint was issued in the same year as the Burgess, Stringer edition, "but with plates so badly printed as to be almost caricatures of the original." There are two sales records for the Boston edition (one at Goodspeed?'s in 1940, the other at Baltimore Book Auction in 1997). However there are NO AUCTION OR SALE RECORDS of this New York edition on either American Book Prices Current or Rare Book Hub. Two volumes, as issued, newly rebound in one volume. Three-quarter leather with raised bands and leather spine labels; with marble boards, new linen hinges, new endpapers, and new sewn headbands. Pages a little age-darkened and light foxing or staining, primarily to margins, throughout. Still good to very good. And, ACTUALLY RARE. .

        SCENES IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS, AND IN OREGON, CALIFORNIA, NEW MEXICO, TEXAS, AND THE GRAND PRAIRIES; OR NOTES BY THE WAY, DURING AN EXCURSION OF THREE YEARS...By a New Englander

      Philadelphia, 1846. Modern half calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Small tear at one cross-fold of the map, with no loss. An occasional trace of foxing, stain on five leaves not affecting readability of text. Very good. With the bookplate of noted collector Kenneth Hill on the front pastedown. One of the most important overland narratives. Sage set out from Westport in the summer of 1841 with a fur caravan, later visiting New Mexico, witnessing the disaster of the Snively expedition, and joining the end of the 1843 Fremont expedition. He returned to Ohio in time to take a vigorous if futile role in the election of 1844, supporting Henry Clay. He wrote this book in 1845. The story of the publication of this work and its subsequent sale is told by LeRoy Hafen in the introduction to the most scholarly edition of Sage, issued in two volumes by the Arthur H. Clark Co. in 1956. According to Hafen, the publishers of the original edition felt the addition of a map would cost too much, and it was only at the author's insistence that a map was printed and sold with the book, at a higher rate. The map, based mainly on the 1845 Fremont map, is usually not found with the book. It is "one of the earliest to depict the finally-determined Oregon boundary...one of the earliest attempts to show on a map the evermore- heavily traveled emigrant road to California" (Wheat). It adds interesting notes on the country and locations of fur trading establishments. Sage was certainly one of the most literate and acute observers of the West in the period immediately before the events of 1846. First edition, second issue (with page numbers 77-88, 270-271, and 302 correctly placed in outer margin). Preceded by a limited issue of 100 copies in wrappers published without the map.

With a large folding map (40 x 52.5 cm) depicting what the United States called Oregon Country, dated 1846 and partly coloured in outline. Modern maroon half morocco. .

      Eberstadt 134:563; Howes F70; Sabin 24000; not in the Graff Collection. First and only separately published edition of a detailed account of the geography, history and especially diplomacy of the northwest American region that the United States called Oregon Country, written and published during the negotiations to divide the region between Great Britain and the United States. The British called it the Columbia District. The folding map shows the "ligne proposé par les Etats-Unis" at the 49th parallel, which was the final dividing line in the 1846 treaty except that the whole of Vancouver Island went to Great Britain. In 1848 the United States part officially became the Oregon territory and was later the States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and parts of two others, while the British part became the southern part of what is now British Columbia in Canada. The map has some irregular folds and several tears, some repaired, but all are marginal. The book is otherwise in very good condition..

        A Squatter A Visit to the Antipodes

Octavo, lithograph frontispiece, vignettes on title and final page, some light foxing, old owner's inscription; a very good copy in the original blindstamped publisher's red cloth, upper cover with gilt embossed kangaroo, a little faded. First edition. Lloyd gives a short history of South Australia and attempts to analyse the economic crisis which existed at the time of his visit, and to assess future prospects for settlers. He was in Adelaide during Sturt's departure for Central Australia in 1844 and gives a colourful description of that event.The frontispiece is a marvellous depiction of "Poodna Williamy" or "William the Light-footed", a South Australian Aborigine, after the original sketch by Lloyd himself.

Original blindstamped cloth with titles in gilt on spine, all but 1846 with printed endpapers, in the publisher's dust-wrappers with printed paper spine labels; variously paginated. The later volumes are largely fine, but 1846 has both hinges cracked, being held on only by the cords; 1868 with a paper tear at the front pastedown. The jackets for 1846 and 1853 show dampstaining, the one for 1851 has an age-toned spine; 1846 has a detached front panel and is lacking a couple of it's french-fold flaps, 1851 with tears and light chiopping, 1863 and 1868 with larger chips, the rest with light chipping and some tears, but overall an attractive set. Interesting to note the changes in the jackets over the two decades we have here, as the color changed from dusky violet in the '40s and '50s to dark blue in the mid-'50s to a lighter blue in the later '60s. The publisher (thankfully) abandoned the french-fold-style jacket sometime after 1846 and before 1851. .

        A ROUTE-BOOK, ADAPTED TO MITCHELL'S NATIONAL MAP OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC; COMPRISING TABLES OF THE PRINCIPAL RAIL-ROAD, STEAM-BOAT AND STAGE ROUTES, THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES

      Philadelphia, 1846. 16mo. Original blindstamped and gilt blue morocco, with original clasp. Morocco a bit rubbed and edgeworn. Map with two closed tears in left edge, where bound in, with no loss; small closed tear along Iowa-Missouri border, with no loss. The text is very clean. In very good condition, the map with brilliant contemporary color. Second edition, after the first of 1843, of this rare pocket map of North America, showing the United States west to Texas, Indian Territory, and Dakota Territory (i.e. 19° longitude west of Washington, D.C.). The map, J.H. Young's "Mitchell's National Map of the American Republic or the United States of North America," is revised and updated from the 1843 version, most notably by the addition of the newly created Territory of Iowa. The inset map of Texas is new to this 1846 edition, and dates from the first year of statehood, still showing Texas with its Republic boundaries. The Oregon inset is also new, and shows the Oregon border going north into Canada, i.e. before the 1846 treaty boundaries. There are also two population tables, and the text lists the major railroad, steamboat, and stage routes all the way west to Iowa, Wisconsin, and Missouri. The four insets are: "Map of the North-Eastern boundary of the United States According to the Treaty of 1842," "Map of the Southern part of Florida," "Map of Oregon Territory," and "Map of the State of Texas." These four insets take the place of the thirty-two small inset maps of cities and town from the 1843 version of the map. Rumsey lists only the wall map version of this 1846 map. OCLC locates eight copies of this important pocket map.

        New Bedford and Fairhaven Signal Book

      Pacific coast, 1846. A few leaves a bit browned and thumbed, yet remarkably well preserved for an original item once aboard a whaler, binding entirely unsophisticated.. Small manuscript book measuring 135 x 95 mm, entirely illustrated throughout with a total of 97 leaves; original canvas with leather spine. A fascinating survival from the golden years of North American whaling - a watercolour booklet of some 97 leaves illustrating flags and ensigns, executed at sea in 1846 by a crewman aboard the whaler Hector while cruising off the Pacific coast of South America. The book is remarkable for its hand-painted map titled the "Standard of America": a young Stars and Stripes with only four stars. Another noteworthy addition is the ensign of the whaler Acushnet aboard which Hermann Melville sailed in 1841 (and famously deserted in 1842), an experience which did much to inspire Moby Dick.A detailed manuscript notation on the front endpaper reads "John Williams book on board the ship Hector... on the offshore ground-Lat. 05.23 S. Long. 100.26 W. June 14, 1846-30 months out 1100 bbls Sperm". Crewman John Williams evidently began this book of ensigns as a pastime, while cruising the line off the Galapagos Islands, copying many of the flag signals from Taber's New Bedford and Fairhaven Signal Book and another unknown sourcebook of international flags. The section detailing Massachusetts whaling signals is liberally annotated with ship names and details of agents, and has been divided into parts based on the constituent colours of the ensigns illustrated. Of additional interest is the inclusion of the flag of the Barbary pirates (or "Algerian Rover", as mariner Williams terms them), being a triangular red flag bearing a prominent deaths-head. Any relics of common seamen aboard American whalers of this period are desirable, and this hand-painted book is a wonderful example.

        [BRIEF MEMOIR EXPLANATORY OF A NEW TRACE OF A FRONT OF FORTIFICATION IN PLACE OF THE PRESENT BASTIONED FRONT]

      [New Orleans, 1846. Cloth, spine expertly repaired. Minor foxing. Very good. An instructive work regarding American military fortifications in Florida during the latter years of the Seminole wars, most notable for the three large folding plates illustrating fort plans. The author, William Henry Chase, was a Florida militia commander who served in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for over forty years, designing and constructing forts near Pensacola, Key West, and New Orleans, among others. In this work he discusses fortifications around Fort Pickens in Pensacola, a fort he had designed and constructed, and whose surrender Chase would later demand at the onset of the Civil War, when he served as a major general in the Confederate Army. A rare work, with only seven copies in OCLC.
