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.

        Manners and Customs of the Ancient Egyptians, including their Private Life, Government, Laws, Arts, Manufactures, Religion, Agriculture, and Early History; derived from a Comparison of the Paintings, Sculptures, and Monuments still Existing, with the Accounts of Ancient Authors [Five Volumes]

      London: John Murray, 1847. Third edition.

Very good copies, extremities rubbed, one volume with top fore-corners bumped and worn with minor loss, labels with some chipped edges, owner's bookplate on front pastedowns, binding solid, contents fine. A beautiful set. 8vo. Illus. with 94 lithographed plates, some color, double-page and/or folding, and over 500 woodcuts. 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. Brunet VI, 1451 (1st).

        Instructions on Needle-Work and Knitting as Derived from the Practice of the Central School ... in the Sanctuary, Westminster

      London, 1847. Third Edition. Original publisher's gilt stamped cloth. Good; backstrip worn and contents shaken; one sample with two modest moth damage marks. 8vo, There are 9 mounted samples of stitching and knitting. A publication of the 'National Society for the Education of the Poor in the Principles of the Established Church' in support of their girl's training school at Westminster. The Society was formed in 1811. Its schools were set up in England and Wales. They followed the model of A Bell's system of teaching through monitors under the direction of a Head Mistress. The book offered here was a part of a fund raising effort for the school and also acted as a sort of trade catalog to attract paid commissions for the young girls by illustrating their skills at various knitting and stitching tasks. The text describes what and how the girls were taught and then moves into the specific kinds of needlework, each 'illustrated' with an actual mounted sample piece. Although this copy is a later edition all of the prevous editions (1832 and 1838) are known in a total of four copies only; the books simply did not survive in tact. OCLC locates only the NYPL copy.

        Framed Autographed Note Signed in the third person

      1847. unbound. 1 page, 2 x 4 inches, no place, December 24, 1847, in full: "Mrs. Madison's love and thanks to Mrs. Duncan for her excellent present." Float-mounted inside an off-white matte with a double opening containing an original 7 x 5.5-inch engraving by William Chappell, circa 1812, and delicately set into a gray and gold wooden frame, measuring 15.5 x 11 inches. This note was written to the wife of Kentucky Congressman Garnett Duncan who visited Washington, D.C. in 1847 and befriended the former First Lady, often presenting her with food packages. At the time this letter was written, Dolley Madison was so poor that she had to accept money from a former slave and hand-outs from her neighbors on Lafayette Square. She died two years later. Fine condition. First Lady and wife of President James Madison. In 1814 she famously saved many state papers and a portrait of George Washington as British soldiers advanced on the capital, barely escaping with the national treasures as the White House was occupied and looted.

        Gesetz der Urgesundheitskunde. Erneuert zu München, am 21. und 22. Iuli 1847.

      München, 1847.. Lithographierter Einblattdruck. 32 x 38,5 cm.. Über KVK nur in der Stadtbibliothek Mainz und im Stadtarchiv München nachweisbar. - Sehr seltener Einblattdruck mit den 10 Thesen des Gesundheitsapostels Ernst Mahner zur "Urgesundheitskunde", die hier auf zwei Tafeln in der Art der Gesetzestafeln Moses abgebildet sind. Ernst Mahner hatte einige Jahre in Deutschland aufsehenerregende Auftritte, er "wandelte mit priesterlicher Würde in langem Gewande barhäuptig, mit wallenden Haaren und mächtigem Vollbart, durch die Straßen. Er hatte seine Heilslehre nach Mosis Vorbild in zehn Gebote gekleidet, schlug sie öffentlich an, wie Luther seine Thesen, und verteidigte sie öffentlich in Vorträgen gegen mäßiges Eintrittsgeld. Er eiferte wider die geistigen Getränke und das 'stinkgiftige Schmauchkraut', rühmte das Wasser und pries bombastisch die gütige Natur nach der Art der heutigen Naturärzte" (Adolf Kussmaul in "Jugenderinnerungen eines alten Arztes", Stuttgart 1899). - Kussmaul weiß über den komischen Heiligen weiter zu berichten: "Böse Zungen sagten ihm nach, sein Gesetz sei strenger als der Apostel gegen sich selbst, und behaupteten fest, sie hätten Mahner im weltlichen Gewande bei Trüffelpastete und Sherry im Hinterstübchen eines Mannheimer Restaurants überrascht. - Es wurde uns erzählt, er steige jetzt mit seinem Meister täglich auf den Königsstuhl, um dort oben im Walde auf den Wegen und Halden Sonnenbäder zu nehmen; sie liefen fast unbekleidet barfuß einher. Leider hatte die Polizei kein hygienisches Einsehen, sie verbot diese stärkenden Übungen, um den Damen der Stadt den verleideten Besuch des Königsstuhls wieder zu ermöglichen. Mahner war wirklich ein ungewöhnlich abgehärteter Mensch. Die Zeitungen berichteten von einem erstaunlichen Schauspiel, das er an einem sonnigen Wintertage den Bewohnern von Mainz bereitet hatte. Auf einer Eisscholle stehend, in Sandalen und nur an den Hüften bekleidet, soll er, einen Becher Rheinwasser schwingend, auf dem Strom an der Stadt vorbeigetrieben haben. - Der Abhärtung ungeachtet, hat er kein hohes Alter erreicht. Verkommen im Elend, starb er im städtischen Hospital zu Konstanz." - Etwas fleckig und leicht gebrauchsspurig. Mehrfach gefaltet.
