        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.

        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. Mitchell:THE ILLUSTRATED BOOKS OF THE NANGA, MARUYAMA, SHIJO AND OTHER RELATED SCHOOLS OF JAPAN: A Bibliography: pages 232-234, ours is example "C". H.

      Romanes, George John (1848-94). (1) Preliminary observations on the locomotor system of medusae. Offprint from Philosophical Transactions 166 (1876). [2], 269-313pp. 2 plates. London: Trübner & Co., 1876. (2) Further observations on the locomotor system of medusae. Offprint from Philosophical Transactions 167 (1877). [2], 659-752pp. 2 plates. London: Trübner & Co., 1878. (3) Concluding observations on the locomotor system of medusae. Offprint from Philosophical Transactions 171 (1880). [2], 161-202pp. London: Trübner & Co., 1880. Together 3 offprints. 302 x 233 mm. 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.

        The New Testament of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, translated into the Choctaw language. Pin chitokaka pi okchalinchi Chisus Klaist in Testament Himona, chahta anumpta atoshowa hoke.

      New York: American Bible Society 12mo (18.1 cm, 7.1"). 818 pp.. 1848 First edition of the first complete New Testament in Choctaw. Variously given as Chahta, Chactas, Chato, Tchakta, Chocktaw, or Chactaw, Choctaw is a language of the Muskogean family, spoken by Native Americans who originally lived in parts of Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana before being relocated to Oklahoma. This translation was done by two Presbyterian missionaries, the Revs. Alfred Wright and Cyrus Byington; the Book of a Thousand Tongues says that they were "substantially assisted by Joseph Dukes and W.H. McKinney, educated Choctaws." The Rev. Wright (1788–1853) spent over 30 years among the Choctaw people in Mississippi and Oklahoma. 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. A handsome copy of an uncommon and significant New Testament.

Henry Moscrop Onderdonk (1818-1861), though the son of a prominent Episcopal clergyman from New York, was tried and convicted at the age 17 of forging bank notes. Onderdonk was sentenced to prison but was promptly pardoned by the Governor, likely as a result of favoritism. In the 1840s he became a publisher and bookseller of religious works and in 1848 he would publish the first illustrated book-length edition of Clement C. Moore's classic Christmas poem, A Visit from St. Nicholas. He was also a member of the Knickerbocker Base Ball Club and played in the first recorded games at Elysian Fields in Hoboken, NJ.

      - 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]

In seiner eigenen lithographischen Anstalt, inmitten der Gewächshäuser, entstanden seine prächtigen Verkaufskataloge. Hier wurden auch die Jahrgänge der "Flore des serres." in Zusammenarbeit mit den bekannten Botaniker und Zeichner Charles Lemaire und Michael Joseph François Scheidweiler (1799-1861) verlegt, die viele der schönen Farbtafeln zeichneten und in prächtiger Qualität farbig lithographierten, feinere Details wurden durch Handkolorit ausgeführt.

      [1848].. Manuscript, eighteen full page diagrams showing battle formations of which six have some colour, 5 others included in the text, 56 folded leaves, title label upper cover, four hole stab binding, some creasing and soiling particularly covers. A manuscript copy of the "Complete Writings of Teachings on Military Affairs". The author, Yamaga Sokō (1622-85), was a philosopher and military strategist and the founder of the Yamaga School of Military Science. 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. This copy has an inscription by Kagetsune 景常 on the inside of the front cover, which shows the copy was made in 1848. It appears that the "Complete Writings of Teachings on Military Affairs" were published in 1840, 1847, 1849 and 1860, but otherwise the book was known through hand-written copies such as this one. .

        Pius Papa IX. Nelle istituzioni di cui finora dotammo i Nostri sudditi fu Nostra intenzione di riprodurre alcune istituzione antiche...

      Roma 1848 Nella Tipografia della Rev. Cam. Apostl.. Folio; 16 p.; caption title. Title continues: Statuto Fondamentale Pel Governo Temporale Degli Stati Di S. Chiesa D. Roma. Fundamental statute for secular government of the states of the church; key document in Italian liberty. Constitution proclaimed by Pius IX in response to agitation for constitutional government in the Papal domain. There were to be two chambers: the first, the alto consiglio, members nominated for life by the Pope and the second, 100 elected deputies. Laws adopted by these two chambers had to be scrutinized by the College of Cardinals, then submitted to the Pope for assent or rejection. Ecclesiastical affairs were exempt. This constitution's utility was never tested; demand for an extension of civil rights was eclipsed by the nationalist uprising against Austria that began in Milan on 18 March, four days after this was issued, which swept through Italy. This so-called "liberal constitution," while it addressed complaints that had built for decades and been ignored by the papacy, was hardly satisfactory for reformers and Pius IX, during his long reign as political reactionary, reacted by withdrawing even these modest concessions and destroying most copies of the Statuto Fondamentale. This copy belonged to Nicholas Brown (1792-1859), American Minister to Rome, whose sympathies toward nationalists resulted in the papacy's requesting his removal. Leather spine; marbled-paper boards. Dated (p. 16) 14 March 1848. Stock#NS0051.

Quelques manuscrits renferment un troisième livre, de 1444 à 1467, qui est de Mathieu d'Escouchy. Précieuse pour l'histoire de la France, de l'Angleterre et de la Flandre, et la principale source pour la première moitié du XVe siècle (Le Moyen Age), cette chronique abonde en renseignements et en documents qu'elle reproduit. Monstrelet passe pour avoir écrit son histoire pour la maison de Luxembourg, car il est suspect de partialité à l'égard des comtes de Saint-Pol et des ducs de Bourgogne; il n'a aucun talent de composition, mais il est le plus généralement exact et consciencieux.

Berieben, Ecken und Kapitale etwas bestoßen, etwas fleckig, Rücken und Kanten gedunkelt. - (Stammhammer I, S.136 [ohne Jahr und Auflage]). – Etwas stock- und fingerfleckig. Eingeklebt sind zusätzlich sieben teils mehrfach gefaltete Bll. mit Liedern oder Nachrichten bzw. Programmen bis 1869, die den Berliner Handwerker-Verein betreffen. Bemerkenswert aufwendig gebundenes Exemplar des seltenen Liederbuchs aus dem Revolutionsjahr aus dem Besitz eines Vereinsmitglieds (goldgeprägt a.d. Vorderdeckel: „Karbe“), das bibliogr. nicht einzuordnen ist. Von dem Liederbuch sind drei Auflagen bekannt: zuerst 1847, dann wie vorliegend 1848 und zuletzt undatiert, aber 1859. Unser Exemplar hat von Lied 104.ff bzw. S.133ff. zwei Varianten völlig unterschiedlichen Inhalts eingebunden. Die eine mit 152 S., incip. „Heil Euch im Siegerkranz“, entspricht ganz der ersten Ausgabe von 1847, die zweite mit 164 S., incip. „O wie lieblich“, entspricht keiner der für mich nachweisbaren Auflagen. Zu Leben des Berliner Verlegers EDUARD KRAUSE (Stralsund 1816 – 1882 Berlin) und der Geschichte seines Verlags hat erstmals Kurt Wernicke einige Informationen zusammengetragen (Als Unternehmer auf den Barrikaden, S.21ff., in: Berlin von A bis Z, H.9/1998). KRAUSE, Sohn des Kaufmanns ISRAEL NATHAN, konvertierte während einer seiner weitreichenden Geschäftsreisen 1842 in London. Seit 1844 war er leitendes Mitglied des Handwerker-Vereins , 1845 machte er sich als Buchdrucker selbständig. An den revolutionären Bestrebungen der Jahre 1847/8 nahm er aktiv teil. Auch an den Barrikadenkämpfen am 18.März ´48 vor dem Palast des Königs, in deren Verlauf er als einziger der in das Köllnische Rathaus geflüchteten Kämpfer überlebte, weil er nach einem Säbelhieb über den Kopf niedergestreckt und von den Soldaten für tot gehalten wurde. „KRAUSEs unternehmerisches Talent wußte . die neuen Verhältnisse und den neugewonnenen Ruhm des Handwerkervereins als eines der bedeutendsten Protagonisten der Barrikadenkämpfe geschäftlich einzusetzen“ (Wernicke S.25), indem er bald danach der erst ein Jahr zuvor erschienen Auflage des Liederbuchs diese „zweite, vermehrte“ folgen ließ.
