Zamorano 80,65. Streeter Sale 2512. Cowan,pp. 536-37. Sabin 72048.Graff 3525: "The Spanish manuscript mentioned on the title page runs from page (227)-351. There is a separate title page: "Chinigchinich: A Historical Account of the Origin, Customs, and Traditions, of the Indians at the Missionary Establishment of St. Juan Capitstrano, Alta California...By the Rev. Father Friar Geromino Bascana... N.Y., Wiley and Putnam, 1846. Useful authority on the period covered and the first account of California in English by an resident. The author came to the province in 1829 and married into the prominent De Guerra family..." The original edition has become quite scarce. Unquestioned as an authority, his work is without doubt the most important book for the period it treats, and is interesting as the first English book on California to be written by a resident of the province. Robinson originally intended his LIFE IN CALIFORNIA to be a preface for Fray Boscana's CHINIGCHINICH, but in the end the 'tail wagged the dog' and for the historian the LIFE IN CALIFORNIA is vastly more important - Zamorano 80.

      London: John Murray, 1846. First edition of the works of Ricardo. Octavo, original cloth with gilt titles to the spine. In very good condition with light rubbing to the cloth. Uncommon, especially in the original cloth. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box.David Ricardo became a stockbroker at the age of 21 and slowly became a recognized economic scholar in England. Though he retired at 42, he spent the following years of his life concentrating on his writing and research. "David Ricardo is without doubt the greatest representative of classical political economy. He carried the work begun by Adam Smith to the farthest point possible… Ricardo, writing 50 years later than Smith, showed a greater insight into the working of the economic system… In the opinion of his own contemporaries at home and abroad, Ricardo was acknowledged the leader of the science… His most important work is On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, first published in 1817" (Roll, History of Economic Thought, 155-6).

        British Wild Flowers

      William S Orr & Co, LONDON 1846 - A poor copy of this beautiful work with 60 hand coloured plates. Classed as poor because the title page is missing; the binding is poor - in marked plain cloth and beginning to detach; and there is a little marking internally. The pagination matches our other 2nd edition copy so this is presumed as second, dated to 1846. The plates are in good condition - there is some brown spotting to edges, and around 3 have a darkened section, again at the edge not affecting the flower image (we have noticed only one plate with a light mark affecting the flower). All have tissue guards - one guard is torn and one has a small hole - most guards have marking. A few text pages have a little marking and p 117 has a repaired tear to the top margin. The final index page has a small hole at the top. This copy would be well worth rebinding. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Very light tanning to text. About very good. This pamphlet discusses the Slidell mission to Mexico and its attempt to improve the situation between Mexico and the United States, especially as relates to Texas.

      Baltimore: E. Weber & Co., 1846.. Seven individual sheets, each 15 3/4 x 25 1/2 inches, folded. Tied at right edge with remains of blue paper spine. Light scattered foxing; faint dampstaining, heavier to rear sheets. Some slight separation at corners of folds. Still, about very good. First issue of the first map "to show the Oregon Trail accurately" (Rumsey). One of the greatest monuments to the cartography of the American West. Charles Preuss, born George Karl Ludwig Preuss in Höhscheid, Prussia in 1803, served as the cartographer on Fremont's first and second expeditions and drew all of the maps which accompany Fremont's reports. Preuss also produced the present masterful map of the Oregon Trail. It is drawn to a very detailed scale, ten miles to an inch, and in addition to providing accurate cartographical information about the whole of the 1,670 mile route between the Missouri and the Columbia rivers, the sheets combine to give a real feeling of the daily progress of the expedition (in 1842 and 1843, between June 10 and October 26) by including indicators of where and when each overnight camp was set, where each noon-day halt was called, and the total distance from the starting point of Westport Landing. Longitudinal and latitudinal coordinates are also given, as are daily "Meteorological Observations" and "Remarks," including notes on the availability of game, water, grazing, the friendliness (or otherwise) of local Indian tribes, and some quite lengthy extracts from Fremont's REPORT. A second revised issue of this map was published in 1849. "More than any other persons, John Charles Fremont and Charles Preuss dominate the cartography of the American West during the three years before the gold rush...Owing to its rarity and to its long having stood in the shadow of the more widely known and distributed Fremont-Preuss map of 1845, Preuss' sectional map of 1846 has been insufficiently appreciated by students of Western history. In particular, those interested either in Fremont's travels in 1842-43 or the revolution of the transcontinental wagon roads will find that the map rewards close study" - Wheat.

Illus. with a steel-engraved frontispiece and 7 further steel-engraved plates, all with tissue guards, 5 wood-engraved plates, and a few in-text woodcuts. Sabin 8658. Howes B877. Hill 197 (London ed.). Ferguson 4243. Forster 11. Browne?s scarcest book, complete with the rare frontispiece, ?Cutting In and Trying Out'. "Browne, an Irishman by birth and an American by adoption, was by profession a newspaperman and civil servant. He earned some renown as a traveler and travel writer. In 1848 he was sent to California as a treasury officer and he spent the rest of his life, except for trips, in the West. Since Browne knew shorthand, he was appointed as recording secretary of the California Constitutional Convention. 'Etchings..' was his first book, and was written in large part to show what life was like on a whale ship, in order to better the lot of seaman. The narrative provides one of the few accounts of life in the whaling fleet of the 1840s, written by an intelligent and sensitive observer. Brown was influenced by Richard Henry Dana and, in turn, was imitated by Herman Melville, " (Hill, Voyages, 2nd. ed., p. 70). Melville, in fact, reviewed the work favorably (Piazza Tales) and it was one of the two volumes he used extensively to augment his own somewhat limited whaling experiences. Extremities worn with minor loss at foot of spine, boards rubbed, early owner's pencil inscription on verso of frontispiece, scattered foxing, a few signatures re-sewn and askew, still about very good for a title usually found in poor condition.

It was published in volume form six months before it was completed in serial form, and Frederic Kitton states that 35 London booksellers contracted for only 528 copies. But although those London booksellers may have had their initial doubts, the book was, and still is, one of Dickens' most popular novels. This is a nice tall copy, well margined and is now considered scarce. "Eckel, mentioning the rarity of this item questions whether a single copy could be found" [Carr]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Church of the Holy Sepulchre, exterior view

      Sketches in Egypt and Nubia, from Drawings made on the Spot.. Francis Graham Moon., 1846–9. Tinted lithograph (two tints). Original hand colouring. Very good condition. Subscribers Edition. Size: 34 x 24.5cm. Mounted size: 51.5 x 67 cm. Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo and three full sketchbooks, enough material to "serve me for the rest of my life" (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, Travel).

        Biedermeierliches Album mit Musterzeichnungen für Stoffe, sogenannte Patronenzeichnungen, ausgeführt in schwarzer Tinte auf festem Papier, nur eine Zeichnung in roter Tinte. 49 Blätter, davon 36 teilweise beidseitig mit Zeichnungen, 1 Blatt mit einem montierten floralen Stoffmuster, 12 Seiten wurden freigelassen, Blattgröße 22,5 x 30,5 cm. Undatiert (frühes 19. Jahrhundert) und ohne Ortsangabe (wohl Süddeutschland).

      - Halbleder-Band der Zeit mit roten Kleisterpapier-Bezügen (Rücken mit Fehlstellen, Einband stellenweise fleckig und berieben), Quer-Folio. Offensichtlich ein in der Praxis einer Manufaktur entstandenes Handbuch für Patroneure, die die Stoffmusterentwürfe der Dessinateure in eine Art technische Zeichnung, die so genannte Patrone, umsetzten. Auf dem Patronenpapier, das im vorliegenden Fall von Hand in Quadrate eingeteilt wurde, entstanden durch die Auflösung des Musters in einzelne Farbpunkte schematische Darstellungen, die dann in ein breites Lochband umgesetzt werden konnten, das beim Jacquardwebstuhl als Grundlage für die maschinelle Fertigung diente. Diese Patronen oder Rasterzeichnungen der Dessins, die die Fadenverkreuzung im Gewebe vorgeben, erinnern an handgemalte Pixel und tatsächlich wird die Erfindung von durch Lochkarten gesteuerten, automatisierten Webstühlen inzwischen als ein Vorläufer der Programmiersprache für Computer und damit der modernen Informationsgesellschaft angesehen. Neben den teilweise fast blattgroß ausgeführten Patronenzeichnungen enthält das vorliegende Album ein großes zeitgenössisches Stoffmuster (11 x 22,5 cm), und eine Zeichnung mit 2 winzigen eingeklebten Stoffmustern. Lose beiliegend eine gefaltete Beilage 'Zur Weber-Bild und Muster-Zeitung' von 1846, sowie zwei spätere handschriftliche Briefe, datiert 1863. Der erste von einer Stuttgarter Kundin der Manufaktur ("Das Tischzeug habe ich . erhalten, nur war ich längere Zeit verreist u. so kam es erst vor kurzem in meine Hände. Sie erhalten durch die Post 11 fl wofür Sie mir gefälligst eine Quittung senden wollen."); der zweite von einem Herrn Leonhardt Stein aus Rothenburg "hinsichtlich der Damast Muster", adressiert an Herrn Schmidt in Künzelsau. Zustand: Durch die Verwendung von Eisengallustinte weisen die Zeichnungen einigen Tintenfraß mit Brüchen, kleineren Fehlstellen und durchschlagender Tinte auf. Das Papier ist stellenweise fleckig. Insgesamt aber für ein Gebrauchsbuch des 19. Jahrhunderts ordentlich erhalten. Trotz der Beeinträchtigung durch den Tintenfraß ist das vorliegende Album ein ansprechendes Zeugnis der handwerklichen Textilherstellung und einer analytischen Technik des Zerlegens von Mustern in Punkte, die uns heute als Vorläufer der Pixel und der Computerprogrammierung fasziniert.

        A history of British fossil mammals, and birds. Large paper copy

      London: John van Voorst, 1846. First edition. Cloth. Very Good. Owen, Richard (1804-92). A history of British fossil mammals and birds. xlvi, 560, [2, errata]pp. Folding table. Text wood-engravings. London: John van Voorst, 1846. 256 x 165 mm. Original dark green cloth, gilt-lettered spine, minor wear. First Edition, Large Paper Copy. Owen was conservator of the Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons from 1842-56, and superintendent of British Museum's Departments of Natural History from 1856 until his retirement in 1883. An anti-Darwinist, Owen developed his own theory of evolution as species development according to divinely implanted laws; however, by the time of Darwin's death in 1889 Owen had come to acknowledge the validity of Darwin's theory of evolution of natural selection.Owen's interest in fossil mammals began in 1836 when he was asked to describe the fossil material brought back by Darwin from the Beagle voyage; his results were issued as Part I of the Zoology of the Voyage of H. M. S. Beagle (1840). Owen went on to publish several works on the subject, including the present one, which caused him to be compared favorably in the British press to Cuvier and von Humboldt. The production of a large paper version in addition to the regular edition was highly unusual for a scientific work published during this period. DSB. Rupke, Owen, p. 351.

        Illuminated Illustrations of the Bible. Copied from select Mss of the Middle Ages

      London: William Smith, 1846 First edition. Contemporary quarter burgundy morocco over marbled boards,ornate gilt-panelled spine, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. . Large octavo. [10] pp. introductory material, and thirty-nine fine chromolithographic plates, heightened in gold, each with a leaf of descriptive text. Chromolithographic title-page, plus printed title in black and red. Slight foxing to some page edges, otherwise a fine, clean copy. Chromolithography quickly established itself as a medium suitable for the reproduction of medieval manuscripts in antiquarian publications of the sort popular in the nineteenth century...The opaque, flat tones of the style of chromolithography which prevailed were ideal for the uniformly bright, clearly-defined areas of color typical of early manuscripts. The modulated tones which Boys had struggled to achieve were not necessary for this sort of publication" (Friedman, Color Printing in England 1486-1870, 138).
