      London: Printed for the Hakluyt Society, 1849.. viii, xxxvi, 203 pp. 8vo. Cloth. First edition. Illus. with 5 plates, 1 facsimile, and 1 folding map. Hakluyt Society, First series: No. 6. Sabin 92664. Field 1514. Pilling 3764. Howes S1053. From British Library, Sloane MS 1622. "The author, of whom almost nothing is certainly known, was evidently a person of some importance in Virginia during the period of which he writes, --- from 1610 to 1612. Book I., pp. 23 to 133, is almost wholly occupied with a description of the Indians of Virginia, their customs and peculiarities. It was written probably some years before Captain John Smith?s General History of Virginia, and is more especially remarkable as having afforded Mr. Deane and Mr. Niel the data to charge the name of Pocahontas with infamy. The following passage will scarcely be considered sufficient evidence to convict the Indian maiden: ?Their younger women goe not shadowed amongst their owne companie, until they be nigh eleaven, or tuelve returnes of the leafe old, nor are they very much ashamed thereof, and therefore would the before remembered Pochahontas, a well featured, but wanton yong girle, Powhatuns daughter, sometymes resorting to our port, of the age then of eleven or twelve yeares, get the boys forth with her into the markett place, and make them wheele falling on their hands turning up their heeles upwards, whome she would followe and wheele so her self, naked as she was, all the fort over, but being once twelve yeares, they put on a kind of seme-cinctum lethern apron before their bellies, and are very shamefact to be scene bare.? On the modern interpretation of the word wanton, rests almost all the weight of the arguments against Pochahontas? chastity. A word used two centuries ago, like ?wench, ? ?quean, ? and many other terms, since degraded by use to reproach, is here in the sense of saucy, hoydenish, reckless, and other kindred terms indicating boldness and want of propriety. Like other native girls she was incapable of viewing her nudity with shame, because her youth forbid the association of sexual indulgence, or even desire, with it, " (Field, Indian Bibliography, p. 383). Spine a bit sunned, wear to head of spine, small institutional bookplate to front pastedown; endpapers at hinges ragged and re-glued, else a very good unopened (uncut) copy. Map about fine.

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).

        Shirley. A Tale. By Currer Bell, Author of 'Jane Eyre'. IN CONTEMPORARY BINDING

      Smith, Elder & Co., 18493 vols., 8vo., First Edition, uniform mid-nineteenth inscription above title on all three title-pages, fore-margins mildly age-soiled (rather more heavily so on first leaves of first volume; see below); attractively bound in contemporary half calf, marbled boards, back ruled with six flat bands, second compartments lettered in gilt, fourth compartments numbered in gilt, backstrip gilt faded (but all lettering and numbering wholly legible), neatly recased with new endpapers, sprinkled edges, a very good, tight copy. The work was issued without half-titles. This is likely to be an early issue since it is bound without the 16pp publisher's catalogue dated October 1849 sometimes found at end of first volume. With the first of two leaves of publisher's advertisements at end of third volume. The mid-nineteenth century presentation inscription above titles is blotted and obtrusive but nowhere affects printed lettering. This copy has the following minor imperfections: Vol. I: mild marginal age-soiling to title and following eight leaves, short closed tear on title neatly repaired on verso; Vol. III: wanting second leaf of publisher's advertisements at end. The first leaf (here present) contains the announcement of the third edition of Jane Eyre, the second leaf (here absent) contains press opinions of the same work. Overall a nice copy of the author's second novel (set during the Luddite riots) in partially restored period binding. SCARCE. Sadleir 348; Smith, p.112; Parrish, p. 93; Wise 6 (pp.22-29)

        MOTHER, THIS IS A SHORT NARRATIVE OF SOME OF THE OCCURRENCES DURING MY ABSENCE FROM YOU AND MY BELOVED RELATIVES [manuscript caption title]

      [N.p.] 1849.. 40pp. plus 6pp. letter. Written in a clear and highly legible hand. About 12,000 words. Folio. Contemporary marbled wrappers, stitched. Some light wear to wrappers, but internally clean and fresh. Very good. Autograph manuscript of William C. Parsons, a British sailor of the merchant marine. Parson's nautical career spanned some twenty-one years and included service on about thirty-five ships. His narrative begins on leaving England in 1822 and goes through 1843. His was a typical sailor's life of the period - suffering under despotic captains, press gangs, tempests and shipwreck. The author spares the reader no detail of his personal bravery and is at pains to leave an impression of his self-sufficiency and sense of fair play throughout some harrowing escapades, particularly on the Pacific coast of South America during the wars of independence. An educated man, Parsons' career advances until he rises to become mate on the ship, eventually settling in America and taking command of a trading vessel that plys the Eastern Seaboard. Much of the narrative takes place in the Americas, either on the west coast of South America or in United States ports. This autobiography is written to his mother and seems to have been a response to a box of gifts sent to him from England. In response, Parsons sent his own box of curiosities to be shared out among his family members (not present here), including tapa cloth, Indian beadwork, and articles made from wood from various famous ships, all of which are described in the separate letter. Of particular interest is Parsons' description of sitting for his daguerreotype portrait by Mr. Cohill, which he included in the box of treasures. "Below decks" narratives of ordinary sailors from this period are relatively rare.

        Shirley. A Tale. By Currer Bell, Author of 'Jane Eyre'. IN CONTEMPORARY BINDING

      Smith Elder & Co 1849 - 3 vols., 8vo., First Edition, uniform mid-nineteenth inscription above title on all three title-pages, fore-margins mildly age-soiled (rather more heavily so on first leaves of first volume; see below); attractively bound in contemporary half calf, marbled boards, back ruled with six flat bands, second compartments lettered in gilt, fourth compartments numbered in gilt, backstrip gilt faded (but all lettering and numbering wholly legible), neatly recased with new endpapers, sprinkled edges, a very good, tight copy. The work was issued without half-titles. This is likely to be an early issue since it is bound without the 16pp publisher's catalogue dated October 1849 sometimes found at end of first volume. With the first of two leaves of publisher's advertisements at end of third volume. The mid-nineteenth century presentation inscription above titles is blotted and obtrusive but nowhere affects printed lettering. This copy has the following minor imperfections: Vol. I: mild marginal age-soiling to title and following eight leaves, short closed tear on title neatly repaired on verso; Vol. III: wanting second leaf of publisher's advertisements at end. The first leaf (here present) contains the announcement of the third edition of Jane Eyre, the second leaf (here absent) contains press opinions of the same work. Overall a nice copy of the author's second novel (set during the Luddite riots) in partially restored period binding. SCARCE. Sadleir 348; Smith, p.112; Parrish, p. 93; Wise 6 (pp.22-29) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
