        Evangeline, a Tale of Acadie. Sixth Edition.

      Boston: William D. Ticknor & Company, 1848 - Duodecimo. Original dun cloth, title gilt to spine, large gilt floral wreath to the centre of both boards contained within blind panelling, cream surface paper endpapers. A little rubbed, head and tail of the spine chipped, short split at the head of the upper joint, hinges a little cracked, light toning, but overall very good. Sixth edition, one year after the first. This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper, "Sarah Butler from her friend, Fanny [Kemble,] December 25th/'45," and with the Butler Place bookplate to the front pastedown. Sarah was Fanny Kemble's elder daughter, named for her aunt, the great tragedienne Sarah Siddons. When Kemble's abolitionism forced her separation from her plantation-owning husband Pierce Butler, her daughters remained in his custody. In 1848 she was touring England, in an attempt to rehabilitate her career, when she was " summoned to America, where her husband filed divorce proceedings on the grounds of desertion; batteries of expensive lawyers were hired on both sides, but Butler finally agreed to a settlement without the formality of a trial, to prevent revelation of evidence extremely embarrassing to him. It was a long and bitter divorce, but it was settled with surface amicability; Fanny was to have $2500 a year and access to the children, who were to live with their father. Butler tried every stratagem to keep from fulfilling the conditions, to the extreme pain of Fanny, who resumed her maiden name." (ODNB) An extremely emotive piece; a Christmas gift, inscribed in the midst of a highly-contested divorce, by a mother to her 13 year-old daughter, "her friend." A number of passages have been marked in the margins in pencil, including these lines; "Talk not of wasted affection, affection was never wasted;/ If it enrich not the heart of another, its waters, returning/ Back to their springs, like the rain, shall fill them full of refreshment " [Attributes: First Edition]

        MITCHELL'S NATIONAL MAP OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC OR UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA. TOGETHER WITH MAPS OF THE VICINITIES OF THIRTY-TWO OF THE PRINCIPAL CITIES AND TOWNS IN THE UNION.

      Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, . 1848 - Wall map, 39 x 49 inches, full period color. Surrounded by thirty-two small maps of individual American cities. Expertly repaired, backed with modern linen, trimmed in maroon cloth, on contemporary rollers. Some creasing, toning, and staining, but overall in very good condition. The fifth edition of an important wall map of the United States, following editions of 1843, 1844, 1845, and 1846. Along with thirty-two small maps of individual American cities, there are two important additional inset maps, which appeared first in the 1846 version: "Map of Oregon Territory" (shown encompassing Oregon and Washington) and "Map of the State of Texas." The change in the Oregon Territory inset is significant, in that the inset on the 1846 edition showed Oregon going north into Canada, while the present inset shows Oregon Territory constrained by the boundaries of the Treaty of 1846. Texas includes virtually all of present-day New Mexico. Another two additional inset maps ("Map of the North- Eastern boundary of the United States According to the Treaty of 1842" showing the Maine-Canada boundary, and "Map of the Southern part of Florida") are carried over from earlier versions of the map. There are also two population tables. As with all of Mitchell's early maps of the United States, the main map extends no further west than the 95th meridian (eastern Texas). Due to the tremendous territorial growth west of the 95th meridian brought about by the Mexican War (1846-48), the map was discontinued after 1850. The map, engraved by J.H. Brightly, also appeared at least once (1843) in a pocket map format, with the thirty-two town plans on a separate sheet. Not in Phillips' MAPS, which lists the 1843 edition. The present map is significantly different in size than the 1848 Mitchell wall map described in Rumsey 2300. An important map showing territorial gains made in the Mexican War.

        1848-1853 14 Vols BULWER LYTTON leather bound + Frontis

      size=5 face=Arial>14 Novels, 1848 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Nice leather bound set of Lytton's work with frontispieces!Edward George Earl Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton (May 25, 1803January 18, 1873) was an English novelist, playwright, and politician. He was one of the great novelists of his day, probably as famous as his friend and contemporary, Charles Dickens, and the range of his works give a fascinating insight into the Victorian world. Lord Lytton coined such phrases as The pen is mightier than the sword, the great unwashed and pursuit of the almighty dollar. Bulwer-Lyttons literary career began in 1820, with the publication of his first book of poems, and spanned much of the nineteenth century. He wrote in a variety of genres, including historical fiction, mystery, romance, the occult and science fiction. In 1828 he attracted general attention with Pelham, an intimate study of the dandyism of the age that kept gossips busy in identifying the characters with the leading men of the time. By 1833, he had reached the height of his popularity with Godolphin, followed by The Pilgrims of the Rhine (1834), The Last Days of Pompeii (1834), Rienzi (1835), and Harold: Last of the Saxon Kings (1848). The Last Days of Pompeii was inspired by the painting on the same subject by Russian painting Karl Briullov (Carlo Brullo) which Bulwer-Lytton saw in Milan. Pelham had been partly inspired by Benjamin Disraelis first novel Vivian Grey. Bulwer-Lytton was an admirer of Benjamins father Isaac DIsraeli, himself a noted literary figure, and had corresponded with him. Bulwer-Lytton and Disraeli began corresponding themselves in the late 1820s, and met for the first time in March of 1830, when Disraeli dined at Bulwer-Lyttons house. Also present that evening were Charles Pelham Villiers and Alexander Cockburn. Although young at the time, Villiers went on to an exceptionally long parliamentary career, while Cockburn became Lord Chief Justice of England in 1859. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are firmly attached. There is some wear to the extremities and the spine label on Zanoni is becoming loose. Internally the books are generally clean and bright apart from the some spotting in places particularly to the end papers and frontispieces. There is an ink signature on a front end paper in mostof thevolumes..

        Original Watercolor of a Hummingbird for Les Oiseaux Les Plus Remarquable

      France 1848 - Edouard Traviès (1809-1865) Original watercolor with black chalk for Les Oiseaux Les Plus Remarquables France, 1848 Signed and dated lower left 11” x 9”; 16 1/2” x 12” framed The work of Edouard Traviès represents a pinnacle in French ornithological illustration, and his original work is exceedingly rare. Natural history, as a descriptive pursuit bent on identifying new species, demanded detailed illustrations. The minute precision of Traviès’ work places him with the best of France’s scientific artists. Traviès was born in Doullens, in the Somme district of France, in March 1809, the younger brother of the caricaturist Charles Joseph Traviès de Villier (1804-1859). Throughout his career he concentrated on natural history subjects, both in watercolor (he exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon between 1831 and 1866) and lithography. Unlike a number of his contemporaries, he was an artist both with the brush and on stone. These exquisite watercolors were created for what is undoubtedly his greatest published work: Les Oiseaux Les Plus Remarquables par leurs formes et leurs coleurs. Scenes variees de leurs moeurs & de leur habitudes. published simultaneously in Paris and London circa 1857. The illustrations describe the species of birds native to Central and South America, and all show the birds in association with flowering plants indigenous to their habitats, such as orchids and passion flowers. Traviès’ original watercolors were reproduced as both engravings and lithographs, which are considered among the best portraits of birds ever painted. The artist rendered the backgrounds fully, incorporating foliage, flowers, butterflies, and architectural features, as well as incidental details such as dogs, figures hunting, as well as the birds themselves, all with considerable charm. No printed version, however, approaches the profound quality and assurance with which the artist rendered these watercolors. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        NOTES OF A MILITARY RECONNAISSANCE FROM FORT LEAVENWORTH, IN MISSOURI, TO SAN DIEGO, IN CALIFORNIA, INCLUDING PARTS OF THE ARKANSAS, DEL NORTE, AND GILA RIVERS.

      Washington. 1848. - 614pp. plus two folding maps and sixty-seven plates (three of which are single-page maps). Original cloth, recased, original backstrip laid down with most of printed label retained. Some wear and staining to cloth. Bookplates on front pastedown. Occasional light age toning and foxing. Intermittent stains. Overall a good copy. The House issue of the Emory report, including the reports of J.W. Abert, Joseph Johnston, and Philip St. George Cooke. Together the three summarize the activity of the U.S. Army to the west of Santa Fe after the capture of New Mexico by the Army of the West. This copy of the Emory report lacks his large map, which was not included in all copies of this issue. The first of the smaller maps is Philip St. George Cooke's "Sketch of Part of the march & wagon road of Lt. Colonel Cooke, from Santa Fe to the Pacific Ocean, 1846-7," which shows the route of the Mormon Battalion from Santa Fe to the Gila River. The other, "Map of the Territory of New Mexico," was compiled by lieutenants Abert and Peck after the conquest of New Mexico. Both are important contributions to western cartography. Abert's report includes material on the Indians of New Mexico and their languages, as well as all of his views of New Mexico, the best group of early New Mexico views published. Wagner- Camp is in error in the collation of this edition, mistakenly calling for only forty plates, plus those of the Abert report. There are, in fact, more natural history plates.

        Nord-Amerikas Indianer.

      Stockholm: P.G. Berg, 1848. - 8vo., (10 2/8 x 7 inches). Half-title. Hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece and 22 other plates (some light occasional spotting). Contemporary half brown morocco, gilt (some wear to joints and corners, inner hinges reinforced); modern quarter brown morocco slipcase. Provenance: with the bookplate of Axel Jonsson Jr. on the front paste-down; with the bookplate of Jay T. Snider "Collection of Historical Americana", his sale 21st June 2005, lot 251. First edition of Catlin's works in Swedish. The text is an amalgam of an abridgement of Catlin's "Letters and Notes on the Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians" (1841) and his "North American Indian Portfolio" (1844). George Catlin, an illustrator from Philadelphia, was the first artist to travel widely among the Plains Indians of North America and create an important body of paintings and graphics to illustrate their customs and artifacts. His purpose was both unselfish and romantic. He wanted, and labored unceasingly, to persuade his contemporaries that Native American culture should be honored and preserved. In 1827 he became the first artist to attempt the perilous journey up the Missouri River, and the first to create visual records of his experiences traveling among the Plains Indians of North America. The artist himself best expressed his goal in the preface to the first edition of his celebrated North American Indian Portfolio in 1844: "The history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life shall prevent me from visiting their country and becoming their historian."

        The Government Gazette of the Province of New Ulster, New Zealand

      Auckland: Printed By Williamson and Wilson, for the New Zealand Government. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1848. First Edition. Hardcover. Moderate rubbing to spine and boards. Small loss of leather at ends of spine (1/2" by 1/4"), and at one corner of front board (3/8").; Volume I, Nos. 1-34. [ii (title)], 5 (index), [1 (blank)], 158 pages + 1 folding chart. Half-leather binding with marbled papered boards. Page dimensions: 323 x 194mm. Includes numerous official Proclamations by George Grey, "Governor-in-chief in and over the Islands of New Zealand, and Governor of the Provinces of New Ulster and New Munster, and Vice Admiral of the same". The folding chart is titled: "Abstract of Cases, disposed of at the Resident Magistrate's Court at Auckland [...]" Pages 15-26 comprise a "List of Men within the Town and District of Auckland, in the Province of New Ulster, liable to serve on Juries for the Year 1848. For each name, their residence and occupation ("Title, Quality, or Calling") are listed. The Gazettes include commerical notices such as numerous tender notices for items such as hay, iron safes, tools for road parties, firewood, gaol and lock-up rations; as well as notifications of land sales; notices for mariners, e.g. "A light is now, and will continue burning, from sun-set to sun-rise, on Swan Island (Banks' Straits)"; a notice for an impounded bullock with "point cut off one horn to prevent it s growing into the eye, brand on rump not legible". In 1841 when New Zealand became a separate colony from the Colony of New South Wales, the territory was divided into three separate provinces. The North Island became the Province of New Ulster. It existed under this name up until the New Zealand Constitution Act of 1852 reorganized the two provinces of New Ulster and New Munster into the six provinces of Auckland, New Plymouth, Wellington, Nelson, Canterbury and Otago. The first printing press in New Zealand was set up by William Colenso in 1835 at Paihia in the Bay of Islands, which makes the Government Gazettes of the 1840's fairly early examples of printing in New Zealand. Provenance: Sir William Martin's copy. "His Honor Chief Justice Martin" inscribed on front endpaper. William Martin (1807?-1880) was New Zealand's first Chief Justice. "In 1846 he was a critic of the British government's instructions to the governor, as showing a disregard for the moral obligations of the Crown under the Treaty of Waitangi." - DNZB (1990).; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .
