        Constitution of the State of California

      Printed at the Office of the Alta California, San Francisco 1849 - Stitched, later red cloth four fold chemise, all within a red morocco-backed cloth slipcase, titled in gilt on the spine Provenance: Henry Lafayette Dodge (1810-1856, inscription dated 1850, U.S. Indian Agent in New Mexico, killed by Apache) The rare first separate printing of California's first Constitution: this is one of the most important and difficult to obtain state Constitutions, and includes the very rare three-page "Address" found in only a few copies. "The first appearance of the Constitution in book form and one of the earliest works printed in San Francisco" (Cowan). This copy contains the very rare final signature of leaves issued only with some copies, which comprise a three-page "Address to the People of California" (pages 17-19). The Eberstadts describe these last three pages as lacking from most copies, and it appears that many copies of the constitution were distributed before the "Address" had been printed. Section 18 of Article I (the "Declaration of Rights") bans slavery. "The text was a model of advanced, liberal, and democratic social and political thought" (Howell). California became a state in 1850.

The following year he removed to Elysburg, at which point he was the first physician to locate permanently, and he was in active practice there for forty-two years, his field covering all the eastern part of Northumberland County and the adjoining portions of Montour, Columbia and Schuylkill counties. He was of the old 'saddle-bag' doctors, and in spite of the hardships of a physician's life in his day survived all his fellow practitioners who were in practice at the time his career began, living to the advanced age of eighty-seven years. He retired from active professional labors about 1870" (Floyd's Northumberland County Genealogy).

      n Historical Romance. In three volumes, 1849 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A complete set of Ainsworth's mid nineteenth-century historical novel. First Edition, Second Issue. Each volume features an illustrated frontispiece. Complete in three volumes. William Harrison Ainsworth (4 February 1805 3 January 1882) was an English historical novelist born in Manchester. He trained as a lawyer, but the legal profession held no attraction for him. While completing his legal studies in London he met the publisher John Ebers, at that time manager of the King's Theatre, Haymarket. Ebers introduced Ainsworth to literary and dramatic circles, and to his daughter, who became Ainsworth's wife. Ainsworth briefly tried the publishing business, but soon gave it up and devoted himself to journalism and literature. His first success as a writer came with Rookwood in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of 39 novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881. Ainsworth died in Reigate on 3 January 1882. Condition: In quarter cloth bindings with marbled boards. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Internally, firmly bound. Afew scattered spots and marks. Tidemarks to the frontispiece of volume II. Overall: GOOD..

        Historia de Mexico desde los Primeros Movimientos que prepararon su Independencia en el ano de 1808 hasta la epoca presente

Palau (#4575) Alaman (1792 - 1853) was one of the great eye-witnesses to the formative period of Mexican history, namely from the War of Independence to the Mexican-American War and after. In addition to the narrative, Alaman includes much primary source material. A man of erudition, well-travelled, and profoundly conservative, Alaman held many important offices in the central government. These volumes are virtually unique in that they cast the Spanish role in Mexican history in a positive light; Alaman was of the opinon that Mexico was not mature enough to be a democracy. Alaman had scientific training and founded the Mexican Museum of Natural History, etc. Deluxe binding in contempory full calf, gilt, marbled edges. Previous owner's small stamp -- Guadalajara 1915 - on the fly-leaves. Some slight foxing and yellowing of paper, affecting the plates but not seriously. The complete set of the Historia is now rare, both on the market and on OCLC - only 1 appearance at auction for many years. The condition of this set is very good.

        A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers

      Boston and Cambridge: James Munroe and Company,, 1849. Duodecimo (197 × 122 mm) in sixes. Original brown cloth (BAL binding variant T, trade binding), title gilt to spine with blind rules forming compartments filled with arabesques in blind, blind panels to the boards, buff endpapers. Slight wear at the extremities, the spine chipped head and tail, but the publisher's name still largely legible at the tail, free endpapers irregularly discoloured, last 3 leaves torn along the bottom margin, no loss of text. A very good copy. First edition of Thoreau's first book. Thoreau published at his own expense an edition of 1,000 copies: less than 300 sold, and in 1853 the remainder was returned to him - 256 bound up and 450 in sheets - prompting his rueful journal entry: "I have now a library of nearly 900 volumes, over 700 of which I wrote myself." The present copy has the three lines of text which were dropped from the bottom of p. 396 by the printers supplied in pencil in a contemporary hand, as also the corrections at pp. 94, 120, and 139. The advert leaf advises that "Will soon be published, Walden or Life in the Woods…", but due to the commercial failure of his first work it was not until 1854 that the latter was finally published by Ticknor and Fields.

        Flabrotamnus elegans (Mexique" watercolor of a hummingbird

      France, 1849 - Edouard Traviès (1809-1865) Original watercolor with black chalk for Les Oiseaux Les Plus Remarquables France, 1849 Signed and dated lower left 11” x 9”; 22” x 18 1/2” 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]

        Colton’s Map of United States, The British Provinces, Mexico, etc., Showing the Gold Regions in California

      New York, Ackermann 1849 - Joseph H. Colton “Colton’s Map of United States, The British Provinces, Mexico, etc., Showing the Gold Regions in California” New York: Ackermann 1849 Lithograph with outline color, with the leather cover and linen map case Sheet size: 19” x 25” Framed size: 30” x 36 ½” Colton’s New York firm was one of the largest American firms of its day, and produced a wide array of important and widely used maps, including many maps in the pocket map format. Beginning with large wall maps of the United States, Joseph H. Colton, along with his brother George W. Colton, expanded the operations of the family firm to include gazetteers and atlases, becoming a major force in map publishing from 1847 to 1884. Gold was “discovered” in California in 1848, and by 1849 the rush to the California goldfields had begun in earnest. Colton’s map contains many references to this transformational time in American history. There are two inset maps: one showing the nautical route from New York to San Francisco around Cape Horn, South America, the other a detailed survey of the Gold Mining regions in Northern California. A vignette of Pyramid Lake, named for the pyramid-shaped rock formation in the lake, is on the left side of the map. In 1843 gold was discovered near Pyramid Lake, but the small find failed to trigger a rush to this region though Fremont’s expedition did visit the lake in 1844. Additionally, land routes taken across the country by the “forty-niners” are shown, as well as the mining boom towns of San Francisco, New Helvetia and Sutter’s Fort (both would become part of Sacramento). This map was also used to illustrate a German pamphlet entitled “Californien und seine verhaltnisse ” (1849) and in “California and its Gold Regions ” by Fayette Robinson (1849) This map is a noteworthy example of Colton’s work, which is characterized by borders embellished with interweaving vines. Colton’s “Map of the United States ” is an important and attractive visual document that holds an important place in the history of California and American westward migration. Reference: Carl I. Wheat “Maps of the California Gold Region 1848-1857”; San Francisco: The Grabhorn Press, 1942.

        The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia. [With:] Egypt & Nubia, from drawings made on the spot... With historical descriptions by William Brockedon

      London: F.G. Moon, 1849. 6 volumes, large folio. [Holy Land:] Contemporary green morocco gilt by Charles Lewis, the covers with an outer gilt border built up from numerous small tools including arabesques, stylised foliage, crescent moons, flowerheads, etc., the upper covers lettered in gilt with author and title, spines in six compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted in gilt, the second and third compartments lettered in gilt, the remaining compartments with repeat overall tooling using tools which echo those used on the covers, gilt turn-ins, cream glazed endpapers, gilt edges. [Egypt:] Contemporary red morocco gilt by Charles Lewis, the covers with an outer gilt border made up from fillets and roll tools, all surrounding an elaborate inner border tooled to a rococco design incorporating shells, scrolling styised foliage and irregularly-shaped panels with overall tooling of lattice work with small tools, the upper covers lettered in gilt with author, title and volume number, spines in six compartments with dou Provenance: Henry Christopher Robarts (1811-1880, armorial bookplate, subscriber); William Graves Perry (bookplate dated 1931) Very fine subscriber's copies of the deluxe hand-coloured editions of Roberts' monumental works on the Middle East: the Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia and Egypt. The greatest lithographically illustrated work of the 19th century, here in stunning contemporary bindings. Roberts' masterpiece was issued in 41 parts over seven years. It is beautifully lithographed by Louis Haghe, to whom Roberts paid tribute in glowing terms, "Haghe has not only surpassed himself, but all that has hitherto been done of a similar nature. He has rendered the views in a style clear, simple and unlaboured, with a masterly vigour and boldness which none but a painter like him could have transferred to stone." Abbey regarded the work as "one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing." David Roberts was born at Stockbridge near Edinburgh, and at the early age of 10 apprenticed to Gavin Buego, a house painter. He continued to work for Buego after his apprenticeship had been completed, carrying out work on imitation stone-work and paneling at Scone Palace and Abercairney Abbey. By 1818 Roberts had become assistant scene painter at the Pantheon theater in Edinburgh, moving on to work in theatres in Glasgow and finally in late 1821 to Drury Lane theatre in London, where he worked with Clarkson Stanfield. Both artists exhibited at the Society of British Artists, Royal Academy and British Institution, and by 1830 Roberts was firmly established as a topographical artist and was able to give up his theatre work. In these early years he toured the continent and Scotland, and in 1832-33 visited Spain. In 1838 he made plans for his journey to the Near East, inspired by a love of artistic adventure; departing in August 1839 for Alexandria, he spent the remaining part of the year in Cairo, visiting the numerous tombs and sites. In February of the following year he set out to cross the desert for the Holy Land by way of Suez, Mount Sinai and Petra arriving in Gaza, and then on to Jerusalem, concluding his tour spending several months visiting the biblical sites of the Holy Land, and finally returning to England at the end of 1839. The drawings of his tour were submitted to F.G. Moon in 1840 who arranged to bring out a work illustrative of Scripture History, paying Roberts £3,000 for copyright to the sketches, and for his labour in supervising Louis Haghe's lithography. Both the exhibition of his original watercolours and the subsequent published work were an immediate success and confirmed his reputation as an architectural and landscape artist of the highest order. It is clear that these two works should be considered as a set. They were supplied to the same original subscriber: H.C. Robarts, a London banker and evidently a collector of some taste. He employed the firm of Charles Lewis to bind the work, resulting in these unique and dramatic red and green highly-decorative bindings. (23 7/8 x 17 inches). [Holy Land:] Mounted on guards throughout. 4pp. list of subscribers. Lithographic portrait of Roberts by C. Baugniet on india paper mounted, 3 hand-coloured mounted lithographic titles, 120 hand-coloured lithographic plates, all cut to the edge of the image and mounted on card in imitation of watercolours, as issued, all drawn on stone by Louis Haghe after David Roberts. [Egypt:] Mounted on guards throughout. 3 hand-coloured mounted lithographic titles, 121 hand-coloured lithographic plates, all cut to the edge of the image and mounted in imitation of watercolours, as issued, all drawn on stone by Louis Haghe after David Roberts, 1 engraved map.

        Histoire De Madame De Maintenon et Des Principaux ?venements Du R?gne De Louis XIV

      Paris - Comptoir des Imprimeurs-Unis, 1849 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A pair of volumes detailing the reign of King Louis XIV of France, in French. Louis XIV, known as Louis the Great or the Sun King, was King of France and of Navarre. His reign, from 1643 to his death in 1715, began at the age of four and lasted seventy-two years, three months, and eighteen days. As such, it is one of the longest documented reigns of any European monarch. An adherent of the theory of the divine right of kings, Louis continued his predecessors' work of creating a centralized state governed from the capital. He sought to eliminate the remnants of feudalism persisting in parts of France and, by compelling the noble elite to inhabit his lavish Palace of Versailles, succeeded in pacifying the aristocracy, many members of which had participated in the Fronde rebellion during Louis' minority. By these means he consolidated a system of absolute monarchical rule in France that endured until the French Revolution. France was the leading European power and fought three major wars: the Franco-Dutch War, the War of the League of Augsburg, and the War of the Spanish Succession - and two minor conflicts - the War of Devolution and the War of the Reunions. Upon his death just days before his seventy-seventh birthday, Louis was succeeded by his five-year-old great-grandson, Louis XV. All his intermediate heirs - his son Louis, le Grand Dauphin; the Dauphin's eldest son Louis, duc de Bourgogne; and Bourgogne's eldest son and his second eldest son, Louis, duc de Bretagne (the older brothers of the future Louis XV) - predeceased him. Volumes I and II of a three-volume set only. Condition: In half-morocco bindings with marbled boards. Externally, generallysmart, with just somerubbing to the boards and extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Armorial bookplate bearing the name, 'Annie York' to front pastedown. Pages are very bright and clean, with just some scattered light spotting to the first and last few pages. Overall: VERY GOOD..
