        The Natural History of the Human Species

      Edinburgh - W. H. Lizars, 1848 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of this scarce Victorian polygenistic examination of the human species. With an engravedportrait frontispiece of the author and additional vignette title. Seven black and white plates and twenty-sevencoloured hand-finished chromolithographic plates to the rear(collate complete). Intended as a supplementry volume to Sir William Jardine's Naturalist's Library. Binders stamp of Otheran, London to verso of front free-endpaper. Charles Hamilton Smith, (17761859), soldier, spy, illustrator, antiquary and natural historian. From a very early age, Smith had industriously sketched and accumulated data. His interests were wide, so that his sketchbooks included historical, zoological, archaeological, and topographical subjects. His interest in such topics persisted through his time as a soldier; after retirement they became all-absorbing. His manuscript notes (and thousands of watercolour drawings) were made mostly for his own instruction and that of any student who asked to see them. Smith's numerous publications, with his lectures at the Plymouth Athenaeum, made him well known. His industry enabled him to master several disciplines and his accuracy of observation assisted him in the making of accurate drawings of his subjects. Interested in history, as well as the natural sciences, he often gave information to the theatre managers William Charles Macready (17931873) and Charles John Kean (18111868) and his brother Edmund (17871833) on the correct costumes for their productions. Smith's authorship of historical books on war included the translation of accounts of the Seven Years' War in Germany, a piece on the military exploits of the duke of Marlborough (for Coxe's biography), and a narrative of the retreat of Napoleon from Moscow, which he wrote in French. He also contributed articles on the subject of war to encyclopaedias. Many of these works were illustrated from his own drawings and watercolours. The illustrations in his natural history books were also based on his own original sketches. Some of Smith's drawings were used for the illustrations in a number of volumes which he wrote for Sir William Jardine's Naturalist's Library: two volumes of the Natural History of Dogs (1839 and 1840), the Natural History of Horses (1841), and Introduction to the Mammalia (1842). A Natural History of the Human Species (1848) was designed to complement these volumes, and included his engraved portrait for the frontispiece. Besides these major titles, he wrote and illustrated numerous articles for scientific journals. DNBCondition: Rebacked in calf with original morocco and marbled paper boards. Externally sound, the spine excellent, rubbing to the older leather and paper. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean throughout, very slight age-toning. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        Journal of an Expedition into the Interior of Tropical Australia. Journal of an Expedition into the Interior of Tropical Australia in search of a Route from Sydney to the Gulf of Carpentaria

      Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans, London 1848 - Octavo, all plates and maps linen-backed. Modern full leather, gilt decoration. Sir Thomas Mitchell's account of his fourth and last expedition. In late 1845, with Edmund Kennedy as his second-in-command, Mitchell set out from Sydney in search of an overland route to the Port Essington settlement. Although he did not find the hoped-for route, over the next year he explored a vast area of unknown country in tropical Queensland, returning to Sydney in December 1846. As with his earlier expeditions, Mitchell showed contempt for official orders, preferring instead to follow his instincts. In this instance he seemed more interested in discovering the fabled Kindur River, one of his more enduring but erroneous beliefs. To justify his decision, he here represented his discovery of the Victoria River (which was in fact the Barcoo) as the legendary great north-flowing source. Although Mitchell did not succeed in finding a northward route and - if anything - further confused the riddle of the inland rivers upon his return, the expedition charted a vast area of previously unknown country without significant mishap or the loss of a single man. From the Collection of Robert Edwards. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Queretaro: Imprenta de J.M. Lara, 1848. - 28pp. printed in Spanish and English in double columns. [bound with:] ESPOSICION DIRIGIDA AL SUPREMO GOBIERNO POR LOS COMISIONADOS QUE FIRMARON EL TRATADO DE PAZ CON LOS ESTADOS-UNIDOS. Queretaro: Imprenta de Jose M. Lara, 1848. 27pp. Original pink printed wrappers. Bookplate on inside of front wrapper. Minor dampstaining to some leaves at top of gutter. Very good plus. Untrimmed. In a red half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. The first Mexican printing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo: a landmark American treaty and the document that gave the United States the Southwest and California. This printing was issued in the wake of the treaty signing, which took place in the town of Guadalupe Hidalgo, where the Mexican government had retreated in the face of advancing American troops. It is bound here, as is usual and proper, with the ESPOSICION., in which the Mexican signatories to the treaty defend their cession of New Mexico and California to the United States. The two items are interesting from a printing standpoint, as the two titles have separate titlepages and are separately paginated, yet the signature markings on the gatherings are continuous, and the second titlepage is the third leaf in signature 4. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which ended the war between the United States and Mexico, resulted in the formal cession of the entire Southwest and California to the United States. Agreements were reached for the withdrawal of American troops from Mexico, the payment of Mexican claims, and the formal cession of territory (the U.S. had already occupied all of the land). The theoretical boundaries were set out and arrangements for boundary commissioners were made. By this treaty the U.S. obtained an addition of land equalled in size only by the Louisiana and Alaska purchases. "A document of resounding consequence" - Eberstadt.

        TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES [caption title].

      Washington: C.W. Fenton, [ca. 1848]. - Broadside, 19 x 12 inches. Printed in three columns of dense text. Light foxing, primarily to top edge. Very good. Description of the design of the Washington National Monument, with an announcement from the Washington National Monument Society that construction has commenced with the laying of the cornerstone on July 4, 1848. Though the importance of memorializing George Washington had been recognized shortly after his death - Samuel Blodgett's broadside of 1801 aimed to accomplish the very same - it was during the 100th-year anniversary of his birth that gave renewed impetus to the attempts of the American people to celebrate his life and accomplishments. Inspired by his loyalty, patriotism, and selfless leadership during and after the Revolutionary War, concerned citizens gathered in 1833 and formed the Washington National Monument Society, the sole purpose of which was to erect a fitting monument Washington's name. By 1836, Richard Mills had been chosen as the architect; but under heavy criticism of the design as well as the estimated cost, the project halted until 1848, when President Zachary Taylor laid the first cornerstone and construction finally began. By 1854 donations ceased, and the project was once again stalled and it was not until 1884 that Washington saw its monument complete. The present broadside describes the proposed monument in great detail, giving exact specifications for all its measurements and edifices. "This Design embraces the idea of a grand circular colonnaded building 250 feet in diameter, and 100 feet high, from which springs an obelisk shaft 70 feet at the base and 500 feet high, making a total elevation of 600 feet. . In the centre of the Monument is placed the tomb of Washington, to receive his remains, should they be removed thither, the descent to which is by a broad flight of steps lighted by the same light which illumines his statue." Of course, Washington remained buried at Mt. Vernon even after the Monument was finished. A handsome document describing the grand memorial to our Founding Father.
