        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM THOMAS HART BENTON, DISCUSSING THE FRENCH REVOLUTION OF 1848]

      Washington, 1848. [2]pp. plus integral blank. Folio. Old fold lines. Lightly soiled. About very good. In a tan cloth folder, gilt leather label. Senator Thomas Hart Benton writes to "Messrs. Stubbs, Ennis, Sheaham, &c., a committee, &c.," discussing the French Revolution of 1848, in which he mentions the Marquis de Lafayette's desire for democracy for the French people. The Revolution of 1848 saw an end to the French monarchy and the beginnings of the Second Republic. The Republic, however, lacked strong organization and leadership, and in 1851, President Louis Napoleon disbanded the elected assembly and declared himself Napoleon III. The second French empire would last until 1871, when the Third Republic was established, which lasted until World War II. In 1848, however, feelings were high and positive, as shown in this letter by Benton. He writes: "Above fifty years ago Lafayette said to the Constituent Assembly of France: 'For a people to be free, it is sufficient that they will it.' These brief, but profound words, have just had their impressive realization on the very spot on which that disciple of Washington spoke them. The French Revolution of 1848 is one of Will. The People willed it! and it came! and the first act of the Provisional Government, for the future government of France, is one of deference to the national Will. A national election is ordered, and the whole question of their future government is referred to the votes of the French people. If, in that election, the expression of the national Will shall correspond with its present manifestation, then the fate of France is fixed by those who have a right to fix it, and wo[e] to the sacrilegious hand that touches this work." Thomas Hart Benton (1782-1858) was a Missouri Senator and statesman who served in the U.S. Senate for thirty years, during the crucial years leading up to the Civil War (1821-51). Prior to his service in the Senate he fought in the War of 1812 and fought several duels, including one sword and pistol brawl with Andrew Jackson, though he later became a Jackson supporter and a staunch Democrat. He broke with his party, however, over slavery and secession, staunchly arguing for preservation of the Union.

He defined the status of samurai during the peaceful times of the Tokugawa period and expressed his views on the "Way of Samurai". "Complete Writings of Teachings on Military Affairs", written in 1656, was a collection of his teachings on military affairs. It also includes several illustrations of battle formations.

        The Rocky Mountains from the Columbia River looking N.W.

      [London]: Dickinson & Co, 1848. Lithograph printed in colours, with additional hand-colouring and touches of gum arabic. Good condition. An important image of the American west before it was touched by Western civilization: the Rockies 'capped and dazzling in their white mantle of snow' (Warre). Henry James Warre was an English army officer who was assigned to Canada, where he examined and reported on river communications between Montreal and the Red River settlements in the Oregon Territory, and points beyond. He left Montreal in May, 1845, and returned there in July of the following year. The best of the sketches he made during the expedition were published in Warre's Sketches in North America and the Oregon Territory (London: 1848), which also included a map and narrative text, 'Sketch of the Journey'. The present image is one of the best prints from this spectacular work. . In the 'Sketch of the Journey' he writes: 'At fort Colville, we again embarked in boats to ascend the Upper Columbia river to the Boat Encampment, a distance of 250 miles. We abandoned the boats at this point, and commenced on foot, the ascent of the Rocky Mountains. We had for many days been surrounded by magnificent mountains... The mountains are about 10,000 feet in height, unequalled in any part of Switzerland for the ruggedness of their peaks and beauty of form, capped and dazzling in their white mantle of snow'. Cf. Abbey Travel II, 656; cf. Graff 4543; cf. Howes W-114; cf. Sabin 101455; cf. Smith 10727; cf. Stokes, 1846-F-76 and 1846-F-78; cf. Tooley (1954) 500; cf. Wagner-Camp 157.

Ferguson, Bibliography of Australia, Volume IV, page 172, 4717: "An attempt to assist bush mothers in the education of their children, other means of instruction being absent. One of the earliest Australian educational treatises". Dr. George Mackaness (1882 - 1968), born in Sydney, was a distinguished Australian educator, historian and bibliophile. He married Alice Symons in 1906. He trained as a teacher and spent many years as English master at Fort Street Public School, Sydney. His book "Inspirational Teaching" was widely acclaimed. He was in charge of the English Department at Sydney Technical College from 1924 to 1946. He was on the board of the Commonwealth Literary Fund, and a trustee of the Public Library of NSW. He was a longtime member of the Royal Australian Historical Society, and president in 1948 - 9. He wrote over 70 books and journal articles, including a life of William Bligh (1930) and Arthur Phillip (1937). Between 1935 and 1962, he edited and privately published in limited editions, a series of Australian Historical Monographs (later reprinted by Review Publications, Dubbo), consisting of valuable original research plus reprints of key but forgotten historical pamphlets. He amassed in his Drummoyne home probably the largest private collection of Australian books. This huge library was sold via three catalogues issued by Angus & Robertson in 1966. Mackaness was president of the Book Collectors Society of Australia for two years (1958 - 9). He was awarded the OBE in 1961 and an honorary DSc (Syd) in 1961, Wikipedia, see also the Dictionary of Australian Biography. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        BUNSEN GAFU: ALBUM OF DRAWINGS BY BUNSEN.

      Tokyo 1848, Suwaraya. Pink stitched wrs., very good, covers. a bit scuffed, contents clean, solid, a few old worm holes,. mostly in the margin, 17 x 24.5 cm., 2 introductory double-. folded leaves + 19 double folded pastel-color leaves. RARE. A LOVELY AND DELICATELY PASTEL-COLORED ILLUSTRATED BOOK A famous book, that illustrates birds, flowers, mythological characters &c. With a preface by his old friend, Kamo Sueta- ka [1752-1848], then 80 years old, when he wrote the preface in 1831. A truly lovely and tender work. The artist was exc- eptionally skilled at portraying typical Japanese subjects from the ancient past in a flowing and sensitive brush. He captured the essence of what is distinctly Japanese design and figures. A delight to behold, with the most delicate of pastel tinting executed tastefuly. His experimentation with color was very successful and not over done like so many other artists of the same time. Cited in many of the usual bibliographies: see C.

A good copy of a rare early Australian treatise on education. Ferguson, Bibliography of Australia, Volume IV, page 172, 4717: "An attempt to assist bush mothers in the education of their children, other means of instruction being absent. One of the earliest Australian educational treatises". Dr. George Mackaness (1882 - 1968), born in Sydney, was a distinguished Australian educator, historian and bibliophile. He married Alice Symons in 1906. He trained as a teacher and spent many years as English master at Fort Street Public School, Sydney. His book "Inspirational Teaching" was widely acclaimed. He was in charge of the English Department at Sydney Technical College from 1924 to 1946. He was on the board of the Commonwealth Literary Fund, and a trustee of the Public Library of NSW. He was a longtime member of the Royal Australian Historical Society, and president in 1948-9. He wrote over 70 books and journal articles, including a life of William Bligh (1930) and Arthur Phillip (1937). Between 1935 and 1962, he edited and privately published in limited editions, a series of Australian Historical Monographs (later reprinted by Review Publications, Dubbo), consisting of valuable original research plus reprints of key but forgotten historical pamphlets. He amassed in his Drummoyne home probably the largest private collection of Australian books. This huge library was sold via three catalogues issued by Angus & Robertson in 1966. Mackaness was president of the Book Collectors Society of Australia for two years (1958-9). He was awarded the OBE in 1961 and an honorary DSc (Syd) in 1961, Wikipedia, see also the Dictionary of Australian Biography. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

Original printed wrappers. A few small chips in wrappers, otherwise fine. First Editions, Rare Offprint Issues. “Romanes’ work with electro-stimulation directly influenced [Walter H.] Gaskell in his artificial production of ‘heart-block,’ the name for which Gaskell based on an expression of Romanes” (Garrison-Morton.com 632). Romanes, Darwin’s last disciple, performed an extensive anatomical and physiological investigation of jellyfish (medusae) in order to discover whether these creatures possessed any type of nervous system, a question that had not yet been determined. On the basis of his experiments Romanes concluded that jellyfish do possess a primitive neural network, which generates and controls their characteristic pulsating motion. Romanes further discovered that the nervous impulses causing these pulsations were unable to pass through an artificially narrowed section of tissue, which he termed a “block.” The concept of heart block, introduced by Gaskell, led to understanding of the heart's natural pacemaker and to the development of artificial pacemakers.

        History of the Indian Tribes of North America, with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs. Embellished with One Hundred and Twenty Portraits from the Indian Gallery in the Dapartment of War, at Washington

      J. T. Bowen, Philadelphia - 1848-49-50. First octavo edition, 3 volumes, large octavo (10 5/8" x 7"); iv[333]; xvii[9]290; iv[17]392 pages. 120 hand-colored plates (including 3 frontispieces). Bound in 19th century 3/4 brown leather, over marbled boards, raised bands, with 6 panels generously decorated in gilt; marbled end papers, all edges stained red. An outstanding set, having all plates clean and bright, a few with very light age-toning; tissue guards protect each plate. The present set is the finest we have seen in years. The title page of volume II and a few other leaves of text, show light occasional foxing; owner stamp (1/8" in height) at top margin of title page of each volume; no other markings are present. Altogether, a handsome, near fine set. Most of the plates are from the portraits by Charles Bird King, painted from life, of Native American leaders who came to Washington (Field 992). McKenney was appointed to the Office of Indian Affairs, by President Monroe; McKenney then commissioned King to paint portraits of the visiting Indian delegates in his Washington studio. Howes states that the plates are "mostly the work of King" and further states that they are "the most colorful portraits of Indians ever executed.The original oil paintings of which the plates were copies were all destroyed in the 1865 Smithsonian fire." The text was written by Hall, from information supplied by Mckenney and constitutes biographies of the Native American leaders and includes a general history of North American Indians. Howes M129.

He founded the Wheelock Mission (named for his friend Eleazer Wheelock, Dartmouth College's first president) in 1832, where he was directly involved in developing the Choctaw written language, along with Byington and Dukes. Period-style half morocco and marbled paper–covered sides, spine with gilt-stamped title and date. First and last pages slightly smudged, text otherwise clean; a few scattered signatures unopened.

      - Ein Unterhaltungsblatt für alle Stände. 40. Jg. 1848 (Heft 1-104; ohne Nr. 46, 67 u. 88) mit "Intelligenzblatt des Niederschlesischen Anzeigers" und "Sonntagsblatt zum Niederschlesischen Anzeiger" (Nr. 1-26; ab Juli 1848). Glogau, Carl Flemming, 1848. Titel, 408 (statt 420, recte 390 S.); "Intelligenz-" u. "Sonntagsblatt" ohne Seitenzählung. Schlichter Pappband d. Zt.; stärker bestoßen u. beschabt, Deckel lose. Sehr seltener, bis auf 12 Seiten vollständiger Band des Revolutionsjahrgangs des traditionsreichen "Niederschlesischen Anzeigers". Die Zeitung dokumentiert eindrücklich wie die Revolution in der preußischen Provinz wahrgenommen wurde und wie die Ereignisse die Menschen auch abseits der aktuellen Schauplätze regelrecht elektrisierten. Bis in die ersten Märztage enthalten die Nummern wenig Spannendes: kurze Unterhaltungsgeschichten, vermischte Nachrichten, Anzeigen des Handels, Vermeldung neu abgestiegener Reisender, Berichte von der Glogauer Stadtverordneten-Versammlung etc. Mit Ausbruch der Märzrevolution in Berlin ändert sich dies schlagartig. Eine Nachricht jagt die andere, die Proklamationen Friedrich Wilhelm IV. ("An meine lieben Berliner", "An mein Volk und an die Deutsche Nation!") werden abgedruckt, "Mittheilungen über die Tagesereignisse" erscheinen als separate Drucke, Ernst Moritz Arndt kommt zu Wort ("Noch eine kleine Ausgießung in die Sündfluth"; vgl. Schäfer/Schawe 964). Die "Intelligenzbätter", zuvor eher dröge und nicht jeweils jeder Nummer beigegebene Anzeigenblätter, übersteigen den Umfang des Hauptblattes plötzlich oft um ein Mehrfaches. Die Aufstellung der Wahlmänner und die Einrichtung von Freiwilligeneinheiten, Tagesordnungspunkte politischer Vereine, Ankündigungen des Militärs, politische und private Streitigkeiten. Alles findet seinen Niederschlag in diesen Beilagen. Im Juli verkündet der Verlag, dass zweimaliges Erscheinen pro Woche dem "eingesandten Material" nicht gerecht werde und man beginnt mit dem Druck einer zusätzlichen Sonntagsausgabe von je acht Seiten Umfang (ohne Seitenzählung). Der Beginn des Niedergangs der Revolution (die Eroberung Wiens durch kaiserliche Truppen, die Verlegung der Preuß. Nationalversammlung nach Brandenburg und schließlich die Verkündung der oktroyierten Verfassung) lassen gegen Jahresende die publizistischen Aktivitäten nochmals heftig ansteigen. - Durchgehend etwas gebräunt, sonst innen gut erhalten. Es fehlen 3 Nummern (46, 67 u. 88 mit insgesamt 12 S. Text), die "Intelligenzblätter" zu diesen Nummern sind aber vorhanden. Zwei Nummern (43 u. 44) sind in der Reihenfolge vertauscht und zwischen Nummer 94 und 95 springt die Seitenzählung von 346 auf 377. Die Folge der "Sonntagsblätter" ist vollständig, ob die "Intelligenzblätter" komplett sind, kann nicht exakt überprüft werden, da sie ohne Seitenzählung erschienen. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
