Very Good+ condition. Previous owners name and gift from a friend inscription March 6, 1884 on inside front cover end paper. Nice copy of a less found book than the first edition published two years prior in 1845 with 468pp. The first, edition of this Memoir was compiled in a very few weeks, amid other avocations, and while attending the sick bed of my father, who died shortly before its completion ; and owing to this want of preparation, as well as to the difficulty of obtaining materials after the lapse of so many years, and at so great a distance from the scene of Sir Isaac Brock's principal labours, I candidly confess that it did not satisfy my own mind. But its publication having happily drawn forth much valuable matter, which in a few years would otherwise have been lost, it will be seen, from a very cursory perusal of this volume, that it is a great improvement on its predecessor, as several errors, topographical and others, arising from the cause just mentioned, have been corrected - many additional letters from Sir Isaac Brock are introduced, while a few others to him of little interest are omitted - and some new and graphic anecdotes and incidents are interwoven in the course of the narrative. (The additional matter in this volume amounts to about one third of the first edition). Quoted from the Introduction by Tupper to the second edition. Brock was in the military in Jamaica and also served in Upper Canada. and was a general in the war of 1812 and in Canada became familiar with the Shawnee and also the chief at the time Tecumseh.

Author was a Canadian born missionary and parish priest who worked extensively with the indigenous people of Quebec, Canada. The present treatise contains chant masses in the Montagnais dialect of the North American Indians which was was disseminated amongst the inhabitants of various missions including those at Saguenay and Tadoussac. Pilling Algonquian p. 122; Ayer Indian Linguistics Montagnais 10; Staton/Tremaine Supplement 5343; Sabin 21436.Later edition published in 1856. Flavien Durocher (1800-1876) was a noted Sulpician, Oblate of Mary Immaculate, missionary and parish priest. "After studying at the college of Montreal from 1818 to 1820, Flavien Durocher taught there until 1823; on 20 September of that year he was ordained priest. He was appointed assistant priest at Notre-Dame de Montréal, then at Trois-Rivières, and in 1827 he joined the Sulpicians, who received him as a member the following year. He resumed teaching at Montreal (1827-29), then became assistant priest on the Indian reserve of Lac-des-Deux-Montagnes (Oka); there until 1843 he gave his services to the Algonkins, for whom he had some religious works printed. As he wanted to devote his efforts more completely to spreading the gospel among the Indians, he entered the noviciate of the Oblates at Longueuil (Chambly County) in 1843, and was sent a year later to the residence of Saint-Alexis in Grande-Baie (Grande-Baie, Chicoutimi County). Appointed superior in 1849, he was entrusted with the supervision of 14 missions among the whites and eight among the Montagnais at Chicoutimi, at Lac-Saint-Jean, and at the king's posts on the banks of the St Lawrence and as far as Labrador. He had thus to cover a territory of more than 200 leagues. For these Indians he composed books of prayer and built chapels, particularly at Bersimis. At this time the Oblates considered that they would be better situated at Quebec, even for spreading the gospel among the Indians. They left their Saguenay residence in 1853 and took over the Saint-Sauveur chapel, which had been built by Abbé Zéphirin Charest and which was inaugurated on 29 June 1853. Durocher was appointed director of the new residence (1853-73). Following the fire of 14 Oct. 1866 the mission of Saint-Sauveur was made into a parish, and by the efforts of Flavien Durocher, who was nominated parish priest, the church and the schools rose once more from their ashes. This work did not prevent him from retaining his interest in the Indian missions - the residence of Escoumains, and that of Bersimis, which was controlled by Quebec. Almost every year he visited the Lac-Saint-Jean mission, and worked towards the establishment of missions among the Naskapis in the interior of Labrador and on Ungava Bay. Durocher was a high-spirited, persistent, and devout man, and was regarded as a zealous minister by several generations of worshippers at Saint-Sauveur, of which he was parish priest from 1867 to 1876. A lake and township in the province of Quebec bear his name, and a monument has been erected in his honour in the city of Quebec" [See: "Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online"]. Montagnais Indians is "the collective designation of a number of bands speaking dialects of a common language of Algonquian stock, and ranging over the sores of the St. Lawrence River and Gulf, from about the St. Maurice River to Cape Whittle, and inland to about the main divide at the heads of the rivers. They are closely allied and considerably intermixed with the cognate Nascapee who wander generally farther inland in the interior of the Labrador Peninsula but frequent the same mission and trading stations along the St. Lawrence. Among the Montagnais bands or tribes, when Champlain first met them at the mouth of the Saguenay, in 1603, were the Attikamegue, or 'Whitefish', about the head of the St. Maurice; the Kakouchac, or 'Porcupine' on Lake St. John; the Tadousac about the mouth of the Saguenay; the Bersamite, farther east; the Papinchois, north of the last-named; the Oumamiwek, father east, along the St. Lawrence; the Chisedec, about the Bay of Seven Islands. They were without agriculture or pottery, subsisting entirely by hunting and fishing. Polygamy was common, with divorce at will, descent being held in the female line. Their dwellings, as well as their canoes, were of birchbark or brushwood. They were good tempered, patient, peaceable, honest, and musical under instruction. The Montagnais obtained their first knowledge of Christianity at Tadousec, a French trading post. Regular missionary work was begun among them by the Recollet, Fr. Jean d'Albeau, in 1615. Ten years later the Jesuits were invited to help. Fr. Jean de Quen, S.J., established the mission at Tadousec in 1640; later, stations were erected by the Jesuits at Gaspé and Trois-Rivières. The Iroquois raids drove them from the St. Lawrence, and a smallpox epidemic, in 1670, greatly reduced them, practically destroying the Attikamegue. In consequence, the Montagnais began to resort to the mission at Sillery, near Quebec. The whole tribe is now civilized and Catholic, except for forty-eight officially reported (1909) as Anglican. They still depend mainly on fur trade for subsistence, but also work at lumbering, and the making of canoes, snow-shoes, and moccasins. A few of them are successful farmers. Apart from drunkenness, they are moral, devout, industrious, and said to be "improving every year". Their largest settlements are at Point Bleue, on the west shore of St. John, Bersimis, Seven Islands, Romain, and Mingan. Their total number is probably at least 2500. Father Pierre Laure, S.J. (d. 1738), compiled a grammar, dictionary, and other works on the Montagnais language, most of which are still in manuscript" [See: "The Catholic Encyclopedia" online].

        Selbstbildnis an der Lithographiepresse

      1847. Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts signiert: "Julius Adam", verso Zeichnung zweier Spielzeugsoldaten, 25,4 x 19,4 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Julius Adams Vater Albrecht Adam (1786-1862) gehört neben Wilhelm von Kobell, Peter Heß oder Dietrich Monten zu den wichtigsten Schlachtenmalern im vorrevolutionären Deutschland. 1812 wird er von seinem Dienstherren Eugene de Beauharnais nach Russland berufen, um dort den (vermeintlich) ruhmreichen Feldzug Napoleons bildlich zu würdigen. In dieser Zeit als embedded artist' entstehen zahlreiche Skizzen, die Albrecht Adam später, von 1827 bis 1833, in seine lithographische Folge Voyage pittoresque et militaire de Willenberg en Prusse jusqu'a Moscou fait en 1812 pris sur le terrain meme umwandeln wird. Diese 95 Lithographien sorgen nicht nur für Adams weit verbreitetes Ansehen als vorzüglicher Schlachtenmaler, sondern legen auch den Grundstein für den Erfolg der ganzen Familie Adam. Die Söhne Benno, Franz, Eugen und Julius werden in den Ausbau des Familien-Kunst-Unternehmens mit einbezogen. Bei Ausbruch des Italienisch-Österreichischen Krieges 1848 zog es Albrecht Adam wieder auf die Schlachtfelder, diesmal in Begleitung seines Sohnes Eugen. Sie planten, den Kampf des österreichischen Heeres in einer der Voyage pittoresque von 1827 entsprechenden und ebenbürtigen Form zu verewigen. In das Projekt wird die gesamte Adam-Factory' mit eingebunden: Albrecht und Eugen liefern die Vorlagen, Benno, Franz und Julius übernehmen die Ausarbeitung der Lithographien. 1849 erscheint das erste Heft der 24 Blätter umfassenden Folge und hier kommt nun der 28 Jahre alte Julius ins Spiel. Als siebtes Kind geboren, legte er 1847 die Prüfung zum Lithographen ab und bildete sich in Senefelders Geschäft weiter. Seit 1848 hat er eine Lizenz für eine eigene Druckerei, die er sich umgehend in der "Adamei", dem weitläufigen Landgut der Familie, einrichtet. Allerdings währte seine lithographische Selbstständigkeit nicht lange, denn Benno übernahm bald die Geschicke des Geschäfts. Julius' Gespür für die Kunst scheint stärker als jenes für die Betriebswirtschaft gewesen zu sein. Allerdings führte ihn sein stets gepflegtes Interesse an chemischen Experimenten ab 1861 zur Zusammenarbeit mit dem bayerischen Hofphotographen Joseph Albert und zur Entwicklung des Lichtdruckes, der dann unter dem Namen "Albertotypie" weite Verbreitung fand. Unser Selbstbildnis zeigt Julius' hohe Begabung. Mit wunderbar variablem Bleistiftstrich gelingt ihm die Modellierung der räumlichen Tiefe ebenso, wie die präzise Akzentuierung der Gesichtszüge. Der Wechsel zwischen weich und hart sowie flüchtig und detailliert verleiht dem Blatt eine spontane Lebendigkeit. Interessant ist das Selbstverständnis, das aus dieser Darstellung spricht. Nicht der Künstler im Atelier ist hier gezeigt, nicht der Graphiker beim Zeichnen auf den Stein. Es ist die handwerkliche Tätigkeit, die dominiert. Pinsel und Stift haben mit der Walze, dem Lappen und dem Spachtel die Plätze getauscht. Die Ernsthaftigkeit und die Konzentration aber sind von diesem Attributwechsel nicht betroffen. Das Verständnis der lithographischen Herstellung als eigene Kunst kommt hier deutlich zum Vorschein und zeigt sich schließlich auch in den meisterhaften Drucken, die Julius' Werkstatt verließen.

After early aspirations of a military life he became an artist, and worked in Ipswich alongside artists such as Robert Burrows, and his brother Thomas (1825-1906). In 1840 Smythe moved to Norwich, and is said to have worked with John Sell Cotman. He was undoubtedly influenced by several Norwich School artists, such as his friend Frederick Ladbrooke. His work attracted commissions from eminent patrons such as the Earl of Cardigan, and the Greene family.

        James Polk writes to a fellow University of North Carolina classmate on his highly anticipated visit to his alma mater in 1847

      "Autograph Letter Signed, ""James K. Polk,"" as President, 2 pages, 7.75"" x 9.75"", Washington, May 26, 1847 to Edward J. Mallet of New York, concerning his plans to attend the June commencement exercises at the University of North Carolina, his alma mater. Mounting remnants at left margin, mildly toned area at top left bears a paperclip mark, minor repair bottom margin, top margin irregularly trimmed at top margin just grazing top line of text on second page, else very good. ""I regret extremely that my attention was not called to your esteemed letter of the 17th Instant call until this evening. It's sometimes happens ?"that my letters not on official business ?" or laid aside by my Private Secretary to read when my public duties will permit. He omitted to bring to my special notice, and this will explain to yours the delay in answering it. ?" Judge Mason and myself, Will visit the University of and. Carolina, ?" and be present at the commencement of the third ?" of June, and I assure you I will give me my every sincere pleasure to have you of our party. ?"how are arrangements have been made to leave this city on Friday the 28th instant ?". We will reach Raleigh on Saturday ?" and remain there until Monday the 31st ?" on which day we will go to Chappel [sic] Hill.?" we will I learn we met at Raleigh by our classmate and esteemed friend the Revd-Wm. M Green, and a committee from the college.- no my dear Sir, though I fear you cannot reach here ?" before we leave, can you not join us at Raleigh & accompany us from that point? ?" Space I hope you will do so. ?" I repeat my deep regret, that that your letter was not brought to my notice earlier: still I hope to have your company from Raleigh. ?" I am sure you would enjoy the visit. We will probably need many of our classmates & and college friends, from when we have been long separated, and whom we may soon have another opportunity to see:"" Polk had attended during the school's infancy (it was chartered by the state in 1795), and his status as the school's first (of only two Presidential alumnae) was a matter of great pride for the school and the state of North Carolina. The visit proved a sensation and North Carolinians travelled enormous distances to visit with the President. He travelled from Washington in a party which included his wife, her niece, Polk's private secretary, and Attorney General (and fellow U.N.C. alumnus) John Y. Mason, who was to deliver the commencement address. Polk fondly recorded his first trip to his alma mater after 29 years in his diary. During his visit, he visited his old haunts, including his dorm room, visited with fellow alumnae, reliving old times, and in general basking in a shower of adulation. He even visited ""a meeting of the Dialectic Society, of which I was a member when I was in college. At the suggestion of Professor Green I made a short address to the society"" (James K. Polk's Diary, 1910, Vol. 3, p. 47). From his departure southward on May 29, 1847, Polk and his small entourage found themselves mobbed with admirers, all insisting on shaking the President's hand. A large delegation met him at the North Carolina-Virginia border which escorted the party on to Chapel Hill. Polk recorded the commencement exercises in his diary, noting that ""The number of persons in attendance was greatly increased. Hundreds from the adjoining country had come in. As soon as I left my room in the morning I was surrounded by them, and, except while at breakfast, continued to receive them and to shake hands with them until the hour at which the Commencement exercises commenced. [Messrs,. Strunk & White?]"" The ceremony, which lasted until five thirty in the afternoon, was punctuated by an hour and a half recess. Polk took the opportunity to grab a meal at his hotel, but there found a ""crowd in waiting to see me,"" the size of which made it ""impossible that they could all see me if I remained in the House. Several of my friends who thought the people present, many of whom had come a considerable distance, ought to be gratified, insisted I should go out to the grove, & I did so. I was soon surrounded by hundreds of persons, and for an hour or more was constantly engaged in shaking hands with them."" Following the second half of the commencement exercises, in which 37 ""young gentlemen"" received bachelor's degrees, Polk left Chapel Hill the same evening in order to return to Washington in good time (Ibid., p. 48). The recipient, Edward J. Mallett, was a native of Fayetteville, and a fellow classmate of Polk's who practiced law in New York. From 1831 to 1845, Mallett served as Postmaster for Providence Rhode Island. During Dorr's Rebellion, Mallett sided with those supporting the original state charter (The Life and Times of Thomas Wilson Dorr, 1859, p. 175). At the end of his tenure as postmaster in Providence, he moved to New York City where he ran the St. Nicholas Bank (Correspondence of James K. Polk January-June 1845, 1996, p. 178; Trow's New York City Directory, 1859, p. 12) For some time, Mallet served as the American consul-general in Italy, and during the Civil War, Mallett served as a Paymaster in the U.S. Army. (Kemp Plummer Battle, History of the University of North Carolina, 1912, p. 236). "

Erste Ausgabe der Sammlung des "radikalen" Demokraten. - Heinzen (1809-1880) studierte in Bonn Medizin, wurde 1829 jedoch relegiert. Er reiste in holländischen Diensten nach Ostindien, wurde nach seiner Rückkehr Steuerbeamter in Preußen. Seine scharfe Kritik an der preußischen Verwaltung während der Restauration führte zu seiner Flucht, zunächst nach Belgien (1844), dann in die Schweiz und 1847 - im Jahr der vorliegenden Publikation - in die USA. Von hier führte er eine publizistische Auseinandersetzung mit Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels (Deutsch-Brüsseler Zeitung). Während der Märzrevolution 1848 kehrte Heinzen nach Deutschland zurück und unterstützte die Badische Revolution, ging nach ihrem Scheitern in die USA zurück und arbeitete als Redakteur und Herausgeber verschiedener Zeitungen (insbesondere des "Pionier" in Boston).

        General Order # 54 Signed by "J. Williams, A.D. Camp," Informing of the American Success in the Battle of Buena Vista during the Mexican-American War].

      1847 - Headquarters, Army of U.S., Vergara, before Vera Cruz, 15 March 1847. Octavo (ca. 24x20,5 cm). 1 p. Brown ink on white paper. Written in secretarial hand and signed by T. Williams, docketed on verso. Mild fold marks, old mount residue on verso, otherwise a very good letter. "The General-in Chief of the Army has received authentic information of a great and glorious victory, obtained by the aims of our country, under the successful Major General Taylor, at Buenavista, near Saltillo, on the 22 and 23 ultimo. The general results were 4,000 of the enemy killed and wounded, against our loss of 700 gallant men. General Santa Ana, on sustaining that overwhelming defeat, is known to have retreated upon San Luis de Potosi, and probably will not stop short of the Capital. The General-in-Chief imparts this glorious news to the army, that all, with him, may participate in the joy that is now spreading itself throughout the breadth of our Land." "The Battle of Buena Vista (February 23, 1847), also known as the Battle of Angostura, saw the United States Army use artillery to repulse the much larger Mexican Army in the Mexican-American War. Buena Vista, a village in the state of Coahuila, is seven miles (12 km) south of Saltillo, in northern Mexico. The battle was the last major battle in Northern Mexico. It was Taylor's greatest victory of the war, and his legendary command to Cap. Bragg helped him win election as President of the United States in 1848. Santa Anna was later forced to defend Mexico City against an army under Winfield Scott" (Wikipedia). Thomas Williams was a lieutenant upon signing this note, but later became a Brigadier General in the Union army.

      Cincinnati: U. P. James, [1847, but later]. - 8vo., (9 3/8 x 5 7/8 inches). Vignette title page (2 small chips to margins of first two leaves, not affecting text). 3 full-page maps; engraved frontispiece; 8 in-text illustrations (some light spotting, occasional offsetting).

H. Cartwright to the margin of p. 24. First edition, later printing. "Cheap edition" issue, with the list of embellishments, lacking the footnote on p. 25. A bright and crisp copy of the fascinating "adventures of the First Regiment of Missouri Cavalry in New Mexico and Chihuahua" (Wagner-Camp). "Doniphan's and Kearney's conquests gave the United States its claim to New Mexico and Arizona, finally acquired by the Gadsen Purchase" (Howes). This undated copy likely dates to 1854 or later, after the dissolution of the partnership of J. A. and U. P. James in July of that year, as only U. P. James's name is printed here (Wagner-Camp-Becker).

After early aspirations of a military life he became an artist, and worked in Ipswich alongside artists such as Robert Burrows, and his brother Thomas (1825-1906). In 1840 Smythe moved to Norwich, and is said to have worked with John Sell Cotman. He was undoubtedly influenced by several Norwich School artists, such as his friend Frederick Ladbrooke. His work attracted commissions from eminent patrons such as the Earl of Cardigan, and the Greene family.

Sir John Gardner Wilkinson (1797-1875) had planned an army career, but is first visit to Egypt so enthralled him, that he didn't leave for twelve years. "Wilkinson's greatest published work was Manners and Customs of the Ancient Egyptians (1837), a profusely illustrated description of ancient Egyptian society. Drawing upon his work in the tombs at Gurna, Wilkinson was able to present a poignant picture of daily life in ancient Egypt that instantly caught the popular imagination. Praised by one reviewer as a ?restoration to life, as it were, of the ancient Pharaohs, and their subjects? (QR, Jan 1839, 120), it passed through many editions, influencing generations of English-speaking readers," (DNB). Provenance: Armorial bookplates of Edward Huth. Lowndes 2924.

      Bern, Jenni, 1847.. . Erste Ausgabe der höchst seltenen Rechtfertigungsschrift Heinzens, der die Überfahrt nach Amerika folgte (Ruge soll dafür sogar eine Geldsammlung angeregt haben), da kein Kanton eine Aufenthaltsbewilligung erteilte. Im Winter abgereist, kehrte Heinzen aber schon Anfang 1848 zurück und war überall dabei, wo es revolutionär zuging: bei Hecker, beim Struve-Putsch und besonders beim badisch-pfälzischen Aufstand von 1849. - Stammhammer II 146, 1. Huber 23. Nicht bei Friedlaender.

        Meine Ausweisung aus Zürich.

      Bern, Jenni, Sohn, 1847,. 8vo. 44 S. Brosch.. "Ich habe kein Asyl in der Schweiz gesucht um den Preis der Erniedrigung, als stummes Opfer roher Verfolgungssucht mich unter die Füße von - "Republikanern" treten zu lassen. Hält man mich für rechtlos als Fremdling, so bin ich nicht rechtlos als Mensch, und als Mensch werde ich mein Recht zu vertreten wissen, wo es auch sei." (Vorwort). Karl Heinzen (1809-1880) hielt sich nach einander in Zürich, Bern, Baselland und Genf auf, aber überall ausgewiesen begab er sich im Winter 1847-848 nach Amerika (ADB 59, S. 157f.). - Stärker fleckig u. lädiert, größere Eckabriße oben (ohne Textverlust). - Selten.
