        Monument to Monr De La Perouse and his companions erected at Botany Bay

      W.Spreat, Exeter 1848 - Handcoloured lithograph, 155 x 215 mm., fine. A fine Australian view by Robert Marsh Westmacott (1801-1870) from his Sketches in Australia, a series of tinted lithographic plates of Sydney and Harbour areas, mountains and southern coastal regions of New South Wales, "drawn from nature".The French erected this monument to the memory of the scientific and ill-fated De la Perouse, and his companions, whose fate for many years was uncertain, no tidings were heard of them since the expedition left Botany Bay in 1788 having spent several weeks in the company of the First Fleet.Little is known of Westmacott, except that he was a captain in the 4th (King's Own) Regiment, and that he spent the early 1840s in Australia. His published views represent the last in the chronology of work by military or naval officers in the romantic landscape tradition of the early 19th century.

        Collection of 11 tracts and broadsides relating to the 1848 "June Days" Paris Uprising

      Paris: Various Publishers, 1848-49. The short-lived February Revolution of 1848, which resulted in the abdication of the Orleans monarchy and led to the institution of the Second Republic, also produced the brief, bloody workers' revolt known as the "June Days Uprising," in which workers, threatened with losing advances they had made in the February revolution, clashed with petit-bourgeois supporters of the Republic. Far outmatched by Republican troops, more than 1,500 workers died in the four-day conflict; thousands more were injured or arrested. Among the observers of the conflict was a young Karl Marx, who drew on the events in his major work "The 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte" (1852). The June uprising was noted by Lenin as "the first great civil war between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie." The current group of tracts and broadsides, which came to us in a single lot, mainly reflect the workers' perspective in the conflict, though at least one work documents the role of a Republican military officer in suppressing the rebellion. With two exceptions, all were issued contemporaneously. While none is unknown, all are at least uncommon, and several titles are of genuine rarity, not likely to be seen in commerce in the forseeable future. Included are the following titles (author or editor supplied where known): Micromegas. Le Cousin de Micromegas Aux Roberts-Macaires, Industriels. Civils et Politiques, de la bonne ville de Paris. Imp. Cordier [1848]. OCLC 6 copies; 1 in North America. Pierre, Alexandre. Les Robert-Macaires de la République. Paris: M. Alexandre-Pierre [1848]. OCLC 1 copy (BNF). Par la Mère Duchène (pseud.

Rare. OCLC lists scant copies in any early edition. This edition not seen at auction since 1939. Not found in Hill or Cox. A Diccionario Geographico was subsequently issued, usually designated as Volume 8; this set contains the announcement for the dictionary on the leaf following Vol. 7, p. 279 as not yet ready. Where seen, the dictionary is usually with the second edition and bears an imprint different from that of Borges. A couple of the plates have light foxing; 1891 (?) ownership signature across the title of each volume, and with the title of Volume 1 with a light offset presumably from a clipping laid in. But essentially a near fine set with only traces of wear and rubbing. Text in Portuguese.

Date: Date seal is present but does not correspond to any listings in Andreas Marks. This probably indicates a date after 1875. Signed: Kunimasa hitsu. Publisher: Uncertain but believed to be Daikokuya Kinzaburo. Seal name Dai. Flourished 1863 to 1881 [or 1887]. Colors: Excellent colors, somewhat understated but not much faded. Principal colors are four shades of blue, and a rust red. Secondary colors include ecru, beige and gray-green. Condition: Margins are fully trimmed. Washi [?] paper. Unbacked. The three panels are carefully pasted together from the reverse side along either vertical edge of the center sheet. Minor tape residue observed at the top edge of the reverse of sheets, rather trivial. A ½ inch worm hole at the very top of each sheet, professionally backed. Also a similar backed worm hole 1/3 of way down seam between left and center sheets. Almost no soiling. Very Good as to impression. The lines are reasonably clean and clear, neither crisp nor mushy, suggesting a pull neither early nor late. Overall rated Very Good. Comments: Originally born Takenouchi Hidehisa, the artist used multiple go (artist names) during his career including Baido Hosai, Baido Kunimasa, Kochoro, Kunimasa IV, Kunisada III and Toyokuni V. Early in his career he used the go Kunimasa IV and Baido Hosai. In 1889 he succeeded as head of the Utagawa line and took the go Kunisada III. Later in his career he claimed the title Toyokuni IV, but that go was already taken (a fact that he refused to recognize), so he is referred to as Toyokuni V. Featuring the actors Bando Mitsugoro at right, Nakamura [first name undecipherable] at center, and [?] ____Nosuke at left.. Very Good. Illus. by Utagawa Kunimasa IV.

        Map of the United States showing boundaries after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo]

      P.S. Duval, Philadelphia - This map published by the United States General Land Office shows the impact of treaties on the nation's borders from the Revolutionary War to the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848. In addition to the established states, the map shows the territories of New Mexico, California, Oregon, Minnesota and Nebraska. Hand-colored lines show the boundaries of the nation established by various treaties, as per a key in the upper right of the map: red for the Treaty of Paris, orange for the Treaty of 1846 with Great Britain, yellow for the Treaty of 1795 with Spain, green for the treaty of 1803 with France, purple for the Treaty of 1819 with Spain, and blue for the Treaty of 1848 with Mexico. The map is flanked on either side by tables detailing geographical information. The map appeared in various government documents of the period relating to the Mexican-American War and the California Gold Rush, including published speeches by then-President James Polk to Congress. It is in good condition with deluxe margins. Original folds as issued. Overall toning is pleasing. The U.S. General Land Office (GLO) was established in 1812 to oversee the survey,ing platting, and sale of public domain lands in the western United States. In 1785, it established the Public Land Survey System. The GLO functioned until 1849, when it was subsumed under the Department of the Interior. This map offers a fascinating view of the development of the western United States. Map. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Image measures 13.74 x 33.25". Sheet measures 17.75 x 36.5".

        Apuntes para la Historia de la Guerra entre México y los Estados-Unidos

      México: Tipografia de Manuel Payno, 1848. First edition. Contemporary quarter morocco over marbled boards, four raised bands, gilt title on spine. About very good, small chip to foot of spine, edges worn, armorial bookplate on free front endpaper, scattered foxing, tide line on top fore margin of first dozen or so leaves, a few leaves with old reinforcement repairs on top inner edge affecting a few words, one map with a few repairs affecting the neat line at one corner and blank areas, one leaf with two wear holes to lower margin, otherwise quite solid. Sm. 4to. Illus. with 28 lithographic maps and plates (14 folding maps; 14 portrait plates, and one folding table. With all maps and plates. "Extremely rare," Sabin. Fifteen authors (listed at the conclusion of the introduction) provide the Mexican view of the war with battle plans. Originally published in installments in late 1848 to early 1849, then the remaining issues were bound, which may explain the lower plate or map counts in most other copies currently offered as well as those listed by Eberstadt, Sabin, Palau, Howes. Severely criticizes the loss of nearly 55% of Mexican territory by General Santa Anna who had the work suppressed, copies in private hands burned, and the authors imprisoned. "They [the authors] wanted to understand why Mexico had lost the war and the nation's territory. They wanted to present this study in the form of "Apuntes" so that the information could serve as an example of how to preserve the nation in the future. That is the great achievement of this work. That the writers hoped it would teach other generations about the critical moments Mexico had experienced, about what had led to them, and how we could correct our course in order to preserve what remained of the territory and the nation. Later they became politicians and worked together with the generation led by Benito Juárez. Their experiences during the U.S.-Mexican war helped them when they had to face the French invasion in the 1860s. Eventually they did carry out the work of consolidating Mexico," (from "'Apuntes' and the Lessons of History:" A Conversation with Jesús Velasco-Márquez, Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México). An English translation, 'The Other Side, or, Notes for the history of the war between Mexico and the United States', was published in New York and London, 1850.

        Blow-Hole (Kiana Illawarra) Drawn from nature by Capt Westmacott On stone by W Spreat

      Exeter: W.Spreat, 1848. Handcoloured lithograph, 225 x 170 mm., very good. A fine Australian view by Robert Marsh Westmacott (1801-1870) from his Sketches in Australia, a series of tinted lithographic plates of Sydney and Harbour areas, mountains and southern coastal regions of New South Wales, "drawn from nature".The Blow Hole is situated in Illawarra, upon a rocky point of land running into the sea, this forms the south side of the Harbour of the Township of Kiama. The singular appearance the Blow Hole presents, is caused by the swell of the Pacific rushing into an apperture from the cliff, running a considerable distance inland; the entrance of the opening is on the both sides beautifully supported by basaltic columns. The great force with which the water enters, causes it to expend itself against the side of a basin or crater at the extremity; a magnificent column of white foam is thrown up, sometimes to the height of one hundred and fifty feet, causing a noise that may be heard several miles from the spot.Little is known of Westmacott, except that he was a captain in the 4th (King's Own) Regiment, and that he spent the early 1840s in Australia. His published views represent the last in the chronology of work by military or naval officers in the romantic landscape tradition of the early 19th century.
