        1851 1ed Schoolcraft Indian Tribes Illustrated Native American Creek Languages

      Philadelphia : Lippincott, Grambo, 1851. First edition - 1851 1ed Schoolcraft Indian Tribes Illustrated Native American Creek Languages Henry Rowe Schoolcraft was an early American ethnologist and expert on Native American culture. He was well-known for his Congress-commissioned study on United States Indian tribes beginning in 1851. The content of this set was considered ‘valuable scholarship’ by critics and included accurate illustrations by Eastman. In order to make the work more accessible, the Smithsonian Institute added an index in 1954. This work is considered the most extensive work on Native Americans published in the 19th-century, and, according to Field contains “a vast mass of really valuable information and has indeed performed a very important service for Indian history, in collecting and preserving an immense amount of historic data. Vocabularies of Indian languages, grammatical analyses, legends of various tribes, biographies of chiefs and warriors, narratives of captivities, histories of Indian wars, emigrations, and theories of their origin, are all related and blended in an extraordinary manner.” This part depicts the geography and landscape of the plains Indians, language, arts and tools, traditions, hunting and food preparation, medicine, and much more! Field notes "A very large number of beautiful steel engravings, representative of some phase of Indian life and customs, are contained in the work, but the most valuable of its illustrations are the drawings of weapons, domestic utensils, instruments of gaming and amusement, sorcery and medicine, objects of worship, their sculpture, paintings, and fortifications, pictograph writing, dwellings, and every form of antiquities" Item number: #1961 Price: $1500 SCHOOLCRAFT, Henry Rowe Historical and statistical information, respecting the history, condition and prospects of the Indian tribes of the United States.

      Tipografia di Pietro Agnelli, 1851. In-8 p. (mm. 195x126), mz. pelle coeva, tit. oro al dorso, conservata brossura orig., pp. 21, con 1 tavola, litografata e più volte ripieg. f.t., che illustra un areostato composto di 3 parti: il pallone - il telaio - il timone. "Edizione originale". Cfr. Boffito, pp.162-163: "L'A. era ingegnere architetto, e dimostra una certa originalità in questo suo volumetto, dove fa pure alcune buone osservazioni sovra i sistemi di dirigibilità, specialmente sull'uso inutile delle vele. Il suo sistema si appoggia al principio d'approfittare dell'urto che riceve dall'aria un corpo che cade nell'atmosfera. Oggi si direbbe che il Cernuschi cercò di accoppiare l'aeroplano al dirigibile, il più pesante al più leggero.. Quanto alla salita propone una mongolfiera ad aria rarefatta, ossia a fuoco, protetta però da rete metallica.. perchè più facilmente maneggevole, e per non essere in balia del vento manovra il telaio piano in senso contrario a quello di discesa, cioè se la vela in discesa è inclinata verso levante, in salita per continuare lo stesso cammino dovrà essere inclinata a ponente. Pensa poi che il telaio coll'albero possa servire di paracadute..". Solo qualche lieviss. fioritura, altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

Ich habe Ihr Gedicht mit vielem Vergnügen gelesen, es enthält spannende und musikalische Situationen. Wenn ich nicht näher darauf eingehe u. es Ihnen beifolgend wieder zusende, so geschieht dies hauptsächlich weil ich mit einer Arbeit beschäftigt bin, welche mich noch Jahr u. Tag in Anspruch nimmt. Auf so weit hin wird es mir aber unmöglich mir u. vollends einem Autor gegenüber irgend eine künstlerische Verpflichtung zu übernehmen - es bleibt mir daher nur übrig Ihrem Werk einen guten Komponisten zu wünschen [...]". - Ferdinand von Hiller war ab 1850 Stadtkapellmeister in Köln, wo er zudem bis 1884 dem Konservatorium vorstand.

        Wyld’s New Plan of London. Nouveau Plan de Londres. Neuer Plan von London.

      James Wyld 1851 - Rare folding map of London.- James Wyld, Geographer to the Queen, and HRH Prince Albert. Charing Cross East. London 1851.- partially coloured steel engraved map with wood engraved vignettes and decoration; overall map 56 x 96 cm, booklet 15 x 10 cm. 40 section, backed on new linen. Map: some foxing; some abrasions within image; some repairs; o/w vg cond. Booklet: only back cover, front cover missing but page of ‘List of Recent Publications’ present.- This rare map of London by Wyld has a title in English, French and German set in the top border. There are 11 vignettes of important London buildings; in the four corners are scroll decorations. The map covers the area from Islington to North Brixton, from Canning Town to Holland Park.- Wyld Jr published this map for the Great Exhibition in 1851 as a guide for tourists, showing many buildings of interest. There were several editions of this map though they were rarely updated or corrected: Crystal Palace remained in Hyde Park though it was moved to Sydenham in 1852, and Wyld’s ‘Monster Globe’ still kept appearing in the border though it was pulled down in 1862.- Wyld Jr. entered the family business in c1830. He became geographer to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and one of the leading mapmakers in London. Apart from republishing many of his father’s maps, he also published various maps and atlas. He also created the ‘Monster Globe’ which was exhibited in London’s Leicester Square from 1851 until 1862 when it was pulled down. This was a model of the globe which could be viewed from its interior and was quite the attraction.- Hyde 25.1., page 1.- [ref: 3119]

      June 1851. Printed Broadside, two pages (one sheet), 12" x 18", headed <I>"Constitution of Maryland, to be voted on the first Wednesday of June 1851"</I> outlining the Declaration of Rights as well as the Constitution of the State of Maryland. The Maryland Constitution of 1776 was the first of four constitutions under which the state of Maryland has been governed. It was that state's basic law from its adoption in 1776 until the Maryland Constitution of 1851 took effect on July 4th of that year. The document included a Declaration of Rights. This, among other things, ended the position of the Church of England as the state-supported religion, and granted all Christians, including Roman Catholics, freedom of worship. Free blacks who met the property qualifications continued to be eligible to vote. The declaration was more than a bill of rights, which enunciates certain rights which are reserved to the people. The declaration stated that all power emanated from the people and that the governors were accountable to the people. The current Constitution of Maryland, which was ratified by the people of the state on September 18, 1867, forms the basic law for the U.S. state of Maryland. It replaced the short-lived Maryland Constitution of 1864 and is the fourth constitution under which the state has been governed. It was last amended in 2002. Light scattered foxing, otherwise fine.

      1851 or 1852], [New York: 1851 - Uncolored lithograph broadside, drawn by Magee. 8-1/2" x 10-3/4". Near Fine copy of a rare item. "A satire critical of New York Courier & Enquirer editor James Watson Webb for his journalistic assaults on exiled Hungarian revolutionary leader Louis Kossuth. Weitenkampf dates the cartoon 1852, but it may have appeared as early as December 1851, when Kossuth landed in New York for a much-publicized visit to seek American diplomatic and financial support for Hungary" [Reilly]. Although most Americans sympathized with Kossuth's struggle for liberty, Webb did not approve of Kossuth's "attempts to embroil the United States in the European conflict" [id.]. As a top-hatted Kossuth strides down the street, a copy of Webb's newspaper [with headline 'Kossuth'] protruding from his back pocket, people remark unfavorably "on the man what wrote all that Stuf agin the Hungarians." Magee, the artist and lithographer, worked in New York City during this period, with an office at 34 Mott Street, where he produced this scarce lithograph.Reilly 52-2. Weitenkampf page 112.

        Journals of a Landscape Painter in Albania, &c.

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1851. Large octavo. Original blind-stamped blue morocco-grain cloth, spine decorated and lettered gilt, cream endpapers with printed adverts, Remnant & Edmonds binders' ticket at the foot of the inside rear cover. Map of Albania and region as frontispiece, 20 tinted lithographic plates printed by Hullmandel and Walton. Rubbed, spinecaps restored. A very good copy. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to the novelist Charles Lever and his wife: "Mr & Mrs Charles Lever from Edward Lear. In remembrance of pleasant days passed at Florence & La Spezzia, June, July, 1861." Lear had been in Florence to make a painting for one of his most consistent patrons, Frances, Lady Waldegrave, later the wife of his close friend Chichester Fortescue. Lever was serving at the time as vice-consul at La Spezia on a minimal salary ("as I like the place, and there is nothing - actually nothing - to do, I have thought it best to accept it"), a post that helped support his writing. The book is based on two journeys Lear made through Northern and Western Greece, Albania, and Macedonia in 1848 and 1849. The lithographs in this volume are tinted with three colours - blue-grey, grey and sepia - perhaps a technical experiment on Lear's part. Features the armorial bookplate of Richard Nevill.

It was also only the third dictionary published in the Pacific (preceded only by Andrews' Hawaiian Vocabulary, printed at Lahaina in 1836, and a Tongan dictionary of 1841). There had been been an attempt at a Tahitian vocabulary by Guillaume de Humboldt in Berlin in 1843, appended to a larger work on the languages of the Marquesas Islands and Tahiti by Johann Carl Eduard Buschmann. The compiler of that work was John Davies (1772-1855), the pioneer missionary who went on to produce this dictionary. Davies had also published a short grammar of the Tahitian language in 1823, which is here reproduced with corrections and additions. This landmark dictionary was the collective work of the first missionaries sent to Tahiti by the London Missionary Society, edited by Davies, with significant input from his fellow missionary Orsmond. The dictionary contains over 10,000 words, many of which have since fallen out of use. The manuscript notes on the rear endpapers are an interesting feature of this copy. The notes list some items of vocabulary that are included in the dictionary, as well as some notes on the Tahitian nomenclature for the winds, including words which are not listed in the dictionary. As revealed by the French word 'vents', the book seems to have previously belonged to a French owner - in all likelihood an early French resident. The dictionary was published during the years when Tahiti was a French protectorate, prior to its annexation by France in 1880 and conversion to a colony.

        Liber Henoch, aethiopice, ad quinque codicum fidem editus, cum variis lectionibus.

      Leipzig, W. Vogel, s.d., (1851), - petit in-4 carré, IV-91-[3]-38 pp., un f. n. ch. d'errata, texte en ghèze, introduction et notes en latin, demi-chagrin brun, dos à nerfs orné de filets et lions dorés, pièce de titre cerise, tranches mouchetées de rouge (rel. de l'époque). Bon exemplaire. Première édition de cette version du pseudépigraphe Livre d'Hénoch, qui fait partie du canon reçu par l'Eglise éthiopienne, mais est rejeté tant par la version massorétique que par les Septante. Pour les autres Eglises chrétiennes, le canon 60 du Concile de Laodicée de 364 l'a définitivement écarté. C'est James Bruce qui, en 1773, ramena en Europe trois manuscrits éthiopiens le contenant. Le philologue Christian Friedrich Augst Dillmann (1823-1894) s'était consacré à l'étude des manuscrits éthiopiens conservés dans les bibliothèques de Paris, Londres et Oxford, créant ainsi un renouveau de ces études au milieu du XIXe siècle.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Hursley, Hampshire, England: Not published, 1851. Four page letter, written entirely in the hand of and signed by John Keble. Written from Hursley Vicarage and dated October 14, 1857, it reads: My dear Sir, I thank you much for sending me the Inscription, + for mentioning the Window. It has occurred to me that for the subject or one of the subjects of the latter there might be something appropriate, if one could get it properly treated, in the Prophet Isaiah having his lips touched by a coal of fire from the alter in the hand of an angel c. vi. 6.7. But one is almost afraid to mention it - it would require such superior skill + feeling. If your artist could submit his design before execution to some such person as Mr. Butterfield, I should say, from experience, that he would be doing on of the best things he could for his work. I should wish to give a little (I cannot afford more) to the windows - will you kindly put me down for a guinea? I will you believe me, dear Sir, yours very truly, [signed] J Keble. I have mentioned it to Professor Reed." The Butterfiled referred to in the letter is undoubtedly William Butterfield (1814 - 1900) architect. Keble was an English clergyman and poet. J. H. Newman later called Keble's sermon of July 14 1833 as the beginning of the Oxford Movement. From 1836, he was the priest of a small Parish of Hursley, Hampshire. Three years after his death, Keble College at Oxford was established (Butterfield built the chapel).. Signed. No edition. Unbound. Very good+ condition.

        Photographic Researches and Manipulations, Including the Author's Former Treatise on Daguerreotype.

      Holman & Gray, Lexington 1851 - 12mo. Quarter black calf with compartments and gilt lettering and marbled paper over boards. iv, 200pp. Very good. Tight-hinged and fully handleable, though mildly edgeworn and with marbled boards rubbed; text block lightly age toned and occasionally foxed; contemporary ownership signature on front pastedown, same on inner flyleaf and pencilled at top of title page; ca. 1900 bookplate on front pastedown. First of this edition, tight and fairly nice, being a revised edition of his 1850 "Treatise on Daguerreotype." In 1851, upstate New York minister Levi L. Hill (1816-65) caused controversy when he claimed to have developed a process to create color photographs, which he called "heliochromes" (and which soon became personalized to "Hillotypes"). It wasn't until 1856 that Hill published his "Treatise on Heliochromy" to explain the process, but a daguerreotypist got the book banned on grounds of libel and all but a few were pulped. Hill's process was long discredited, then forgotten, although recent scientific tests show that his convoluted process works somewhat. A decent copy of this seldom seen rarity. A second edition, revised and enlarged, was issued in 1854 by Myron Shew in Philadelphia, and this later edition too is extremely scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
