        Rivière Derwent Près De Richemont (Ile Van-Diemen)...

      Paris: circa, 1846. Hand-coloured lithograph, 190 x 300 mm. Original lithograph from Dumont d'Urville's "Voyage au Pole Sud", showing the Derwent River with, in the foreground, a coach-and-four going at full speed. At this time coaches were running between Hobart and New Norfolk; Craig notes that this is one of the first images of coaches.Dumont d'Urville left Toulon on September 7, 1837, with two ships, the "Astrolabe" and the "Zelee", on a voyage whose instructions included exploration of the Antarctic. The voyage would be dogged by mishap and illness. The official artist Ernest Auguste Goupil died during the expedition's visit to Hobart in April 1840. Le Breton (1818-1866), the artist of this image, had sailed as assistant surgeon but now was called upon to replace Goupil as official artist since his ability in that field had come to Dumont d'Urville's attention. Le Breton resigned from his medical functions in 1848 and transferred to the Department of Maps and Charts in Paris, where he remained until his death on 30 August 1866.

        THE ILLUSTRATED BOTANY, COMPRISING THE MOST VALUABLE NATIVE AND EXOTIC PLANTS, WITH THEIR HISTORY, MEDICINAL PROPERTIES, ETC

      New York: J.K. Wellman, 1846. 352pp. plus forty-seven colored and two uncolored lithographs; 384pp. plus forty-eight colored lithographs. Two volumes. Near contemporary half calf and marbled boards, black leather labels. Spines and corners worn, leather rather dry. Hinges tender. Interesting 19th- century Ann Arbor, Michigan bookbinder's ticket ("E. Booth") in each volume. Scattered foxing (mostly on text leaves), tanned. Slight dampstaining affecting extreme lower forecorner of most leaves in first volume, text and images not affected. Several old ownership names on front endpapers. Bookplates. Overall a quite good set. A nice set of this American color plate book, unrecorded as such, although variants of the individual volumes are noted. Since the two were issued by the same publisher and are noted as "Vol. I" and "Vol. II" on the respective titlepages, there seems to be no doubt that they do indeed constitute a set. The first volume, edited by Newman, is listed by Bennett, but with no indication that "Vol. I" appears on the titlepage. "Bibliographically, this book is maddeningly complex, and is extraordinarily scarce. An examination of three...copies only reveals that none of them resembles the other" - McGrath. He discusses at length the mix of chromolithographic and handcoloring work found in different copies. Newman published other works about this time, such as THE MONTHLY FLORA, OR BOTANICAL MAGAZINE, which appeared in New York in 1846, edited by Newman and issued by the firm of Lewis & Brown. Some of the plates in the present volume are noted as "Lith. by Lewis & Brown," while others are noted as by the publisher, Wellman. Newman also produced BOUDOIR BOTANY (New York: Harper, 1847) and BEAUTIES OF FLORA (New York: Edward Kerney, 1848). The second volume, edited by J.L. Comstock, is more problematic. It is not mentioned by either Bennett or McGrath. A work which seems to correspond in title and collation, but with "Vol. I" on the titlepage and issued by the New York publisher, Culver, appears in the NUC. Bennett lists a similar (but not identical) title with an 1850 imprint. Since these two volumes were plainly issued together (identical imprint and binding, a preface by the publisher, Wellman, in each volume, etc.), one can only speculate - without physical comparison - on what all these variants have to do with each other. One interesting fact does emerge: lithographed plates of plants seem to be transposed from one publication to the other in the first volume, and this may occur throughout. At least four different lithographers are identified, and other plates have no lithographer listed. All the plates of flowers are handsomely executed and colored, although in variable style and care, as the varied shops involved might suggest. As a set, this is evidently unrecorded by bibliographers. It is of considerable interest as an American color plate book and an unusual bibliographical production. BENNETT, p.83 (ref).

        Message From the President... Communicating a Report of an Expedition Led by Lieutenant Abert, on the Upper Arkansas and Through the Country of the Camanche Indians, in the Fall of the Year 1845.

      Washington: G.P.O. 1846. 8vo. 75pp. 12 lithograph plates; large folding map. Stitched wraps (disbound). Light dampstaining throughout, otherwise fine condition (and scarce thus) in modern cloth case with gilt-lettered morocco label at spine. Under Fremont's orders, Abert travelled from Bent's Fort to Raton Pass, down the Canadian River, to Old Fort Holmes, through the Creek Nation ending at Fort Gibson. "It is said that Abert made the first astronomical observations through this unknown country and his report is therefore of special importance. The map is one of great interest." Wheat Transmissippi. Wheat also suggests that Charles Preuss drew the map for publication. The lithograph plates show striking views of West Texas and Oklahoma; one is the noted plate of Bent's Fort. (Wheat Transmissippi 489; Rittenhouse 1; Graff 6; Wagner-Camp 120; Howes A10; Sabin 59).

Subscribers Edition 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). These lithographs were originally published in twenty parts, most parts containing six plates, the price for each part with coloured plates (the most expensive state) being 3 guineas.

        Autograph Letter Signed ('Charles Dickens') to William Hazlitt (1811-1893, editor and translator), 2 pages 8vo, Offices of the Daily News, 'Thursday afternoon', no date.

      - The first page lightly and evenly browned; near-invisible repair to small tear; integral blank leaf. A relatively early letter in Dickens's elegant script, commiserating with Hazlitt on his treatment by the 'readers' or sub-editors, promising to haul them over the coals and to discuss another matter when he has the leisure.'I saw the notice of the French Play this morning, and immediately perceived that the Readers had cut and maimed you . they are the very worst I ever have had anything to do with in my life. I have laid in a chaldron or two of coals, and will haul your reader over them this evening. .' Only two letters from Dickens to Hazlitt are recorded in the Pilgrim Edition of The Letters of Charles Dickens and the present letter is thus apparently unpublished.The Daily News was established in January 1846 as a rival daily paper to The Times, with Dickens as its editor. Hazlitt was a regular contributor (as well as to The Times). Dickens's editorship was very brief, within a month he had persuaded John Forster to take over his desk.Hazlitt, the only son of the writer and painter (1778-1830) had previously been a reporter with Dickens on the 'Morning Chronicle'

        ALS, 2pp., 8vo to R. Hutton re mistakes on a chess board London Dec. 23", 1846

      London, 1846. Roget, Peter Mark (1779-1869). A.L.s. to R. Hutton. [London], Dec. 23, 1846. 2pp. 180 x 117 mm. Small tear in lower margin, traces of mounting on verso. Roget, the author of Roget's Thesaurus, was also a chess buff who "was fond of exercising his ingenuity in the construction and solution of chess problems . . . To assist persons interested in chess, he contrived and published in 1845 a pocket chessboard, called the 'Economic Chessboard'" (DNB). The present letter concerns a defective copy of the "Chess Board," about which Roget's correspondent had written to complain. Roget responded thatI am much obliged to you for having sent me notice of the mistake in the Chess Board: & have only waited to acknowledge your letter, till I could speak to Longmans on the subject, which I was not able to do till yesterday. They, as well as myself, are quite at a loss to account for the mistake, for as the sheets are all printed off from the same block, & can only be folded in one way, I cannot comprehend how it is possible for the squares to have been reversed. I should, therefore, be much obliged if you would send me the one that is faulty, not only in order that you may be furnished with a correct one instead of it, but also that I may be enabled to trace with whom the fault lies & prevent any future recurrence of it, which would the possibility of which I am anxious to prevent, as it would be extremely detrimental to the sale.

        Oath of Israelites

      1846. First Edition . JUDAICA. [Jewish Oath] Imperiale Regio Governo di Venezia. NotificazioneÂ… (Venice): per Francesco Andreola dell I. R. Governo, della Provincia, e dellÂ’ I. R. Marina, (1846-47). Folio (measures approximately 11 inches by 16 inches), modern Folio (11 by 16 inches), modern buff boards; pp. (4). $5000.1846 Venetian printing of the oath to be taken by Jews as litigants in the courts.In medieval Europe, law courts customarily compelled Jews when in litigation with Gentiles to swear a special oath “more judaico” (after the fashion of the Jews). “Both the text of the oath and the symbolic ritual involved in taking it were intended to give it the explicit character of a self-imposed curse, entailing detailed punishment if it were falsely taken. The ceremonial and symbolism were intended to strengthen and make vivid the curse as well as to stress the distrust of the Jew and the wish to humiliate him that were at the root of this special oath ritualÂ… Yet in spite of these extravagant aspects of both ceremonial and formula, fundamentally the oath more judaico was patterned after Jewish religious law” (Encyclopaedia Judaica, 11th ed., XII: 1301-1303). Judges might preface the oath with rituals of their own devising. Up until the 18th century, most courts of Europe employed some form of this oath, and in some towns in Germany and Austria it persisted longer. The present document is an official public notification that the oath remains in use “in all the countries of the Imperial Austrian Monarchy in which the General Civil Code of June 1, 1811, is operative” (Venice at that time formed part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire). The instructions on administering the oath are dated October 1, 1846, and the first page is dated January 4, 1847. The date is of some interest, since the “Jewish Oath” had been abolished in Austria on August 18, 1846 (Austria preceded the other German territories in this respect). The timing suggests that Venice was quick to affirm, in the face of the repeal of the Jewish Oath in Austria, that it was still in force in Venice. Included with the oath is a full English translation, typewritten, bound in paper wrappers and held to the inside cover with a vellum strip. Four typeset folio pages in total, first page with engraved Hapsburg double-eagle.

        Part of the Hall of Columns at Karnak, Thebes.

      Sketches in Egypt and Nubia, from Drawings made on the Spot., 1846-9.. Pl. 58. Tinted lithograph (two tints). Original hand colouring. Very good condition. Subscribers Edition Size: 25 x 35 cm. (10 x 14 inches) 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). These lithographs were originally published in twenty parts, most parts containing six plates, the price for each part with coloured plates (the most expensive state) being 3 guineas.
