        5 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      London, 1855-1863. Zus. 16 1/2 S., Kl.-8° u. 8°. Umfang- und inhaltsreiche Briefe an den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - „[...] The object of my writing to you now is this - I (with Mr. Dale) am making experiments of many liquids [...]“ (15. VII. 1862). - „Gladstone studierte am University College London und an der Universität Gießen. 1850 wurde er Dozent für Chemie am St Thomas\' Hospital und 1853 bereits im Alter von 26 Jahren zum ‚Fellow of the Royal Society‘ ernannt. 1858 begann er mit Thomas Pelham Dale, nach dem Vorgang von Marcelin Berthelot [...], die Arbeiten über das Brechungsvermögen flüssiger Substanzen. Sie ersetzen den Ausdruck von Newton (aus 1666) durch die einfachere Formel (n - l)/d, die von der Temperatur wenig beeinflusst wird, jedoch bei Änderung des Aggregatzustandes der Substanz versagt. Er war von 1874 bis 1877 Fullerian Professor of Chemistry an der Royal Institution und von 1874 bis 1876 Präsident der Physical Society. Von 1877 bis 1879 war er Präsident der Chemical Society. 1897 wurde er mit der Davy-Medaille ausgezeichnet“ (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Gladstone, Schrötter, Chemie, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        6 (5 eigenh.) Briefe m. Unterschrift („Koenig Bey“).

      Alexandria u. Wien, 1855-1857. Zus. 17 S., 8° u. 4°. „[...] Kurz bevor er achtzehn wurde, reiste Nubar nach Ägypten, wo er bei Boghos Bey, der zu diesem Zeitpunkt Handels- und Außenminister war, eine Stelle als Sekretär erhielt. Nach einer achtzehnmonatigen Ausbildung wurde er zum zweiten Sekretär von Muhammad Ali Pascha befördert. 1845 wurde er Erster Sekretär von dessen Adoptivsohn und Erben Ibrahim Pascha, den er auf Reisen durch Europa begleitete. Als Abbas Pascha 1848 Khedive, d.h. Vizekönig von Ägypten, wurde, übernahm er Nubar in seinen Dienst und schickte ihn 1850 als seinen Vermittler nach London, um mit dem ottomanischen Sultan zu verhandeln. Da er erfolgreich war, wurde er zum Bey ernannt. 1853 wurde er für ähnliche Verhandlungen nach Wien geschickt, wo er anschließend bis zum Tod von Abbas im Juli 1854 lebte. Der neue Vizekönig Muhammad Said entließ ihn aus seinem Amt, ernannte ihn aber zwei Jahre später zu seinem Chefsekretär. Zudem übergab er ihm die Verantwortung für die Transportgeschäfte zwischen Ägypten und Indien. In diesem Bereich engagierte sich Nubar hauptsächlich für die Fertigstellung der Eisenbahn zwischen Kairo und Sues. Said entließ ihn noch ein zweites Mal, schickte ihn dann aber wieder nach Wien, bevor er seinen Posten als erster Sekretär wieder zurückerhielt. Nach dem Tod von Said im Januar 1863 wurde Ismail Pascha neuer Khedive. Mit ihm war Nubar befreundet, hatte ihm nach eigenen Aussagen sogar das Leben gerettet. Ismail sandte ihn als Vermittler nach Konstantinopel, wo er den Weg für die Pläne des neuen Vizekönigs ebnen sollte, zu denen unter anderem die Fertigstellung des Sueskanal gehörte. Wegen seiner Erfolge wurde Nubar zum Pascha ernannt. Nubar reiste nach Paris, um Streitigkeiten des französischen Reichs mit Ägypten beizulegen. Nach seiner Rückkehr aus Paris wurde er Ägyptens erster Minister für staatliche Bauvorhaben, eine Abteilung, die er erst aufbauen musste. 1866 wurde er zum Außenminister ernannt. Ab 1867 kam es auf seine Veranlassung zu Verhandlungen zwischen der ägyptischen Regierung und einer Reihe von europäischen Ländern, die 1876 zur Schaffung der Gemischten Gerichtshöfe in Ägypten führten. Ismail hatte das Land durch seine verschwenderische Vorgehensweise an den Rand eines Insolvenz gebracht. Er wurde schließlich von Großbritannien und Frankreich gezwungen, sich die Regierung mit Nubar, Charles Rivers Wilson als Finanzminister und dem Marquis de Blignières als Minister für staatliche Bauvorhaben zu teilen“ (Wikipedia). --- Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius\' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Nubar Pascha, Boghos, Koenig Bey, Ägypten, Mislin, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

         Nos souvenirs de Kil-Bouroun pendant l'hiver passé dans le liman du Dnieper 1855-1856. ... Album lithographié ... Paris, Arthus-Bertrand (printed by Becquet frères), [1856]. 1mo (63 x 46 cm). An album of views, most including ships on the river, from the Battle of Kinburn in the Crimean War, comprising 17 plates: 1 tinted lithographed title-page, 15 tinted and double-tinted lithographed views (image size 30 x 46 cm) and a lithographed map. Many views also coloured by hand. Later half blue cloth portfolio. .

      Collection De Vinck 17202-17206, 17209, 17211-17221; WorldCat (4 copies). A rare lithographic print series commemorating the Battle of Kinburn (Kil-Bouroun) on the south bank of the Dnieper River near the Crimea. On 17 October 1855, during the Crimean War, the French and British navies attacked the Russian outpost there with a fleet of ironclad ships, destroying the fortifications within hours and suffering only light damage. This decisive success, seven years before the famous battle of the Monitor and the Merrimack in the American Civil War, heralded the demise of the traditional wooden warship. Though made from the land, mostly after the battle itself, nearly all show maritime scenes, with large and detailed depictions of the ironclad ships on the ice-bound river. They also show the ruined fortifications in great detail. With some marginal tears repaired but still in very good condition, with only an occasional minor spot. The portfolio is also very good, with a couple small water stains on the silk of the front board. A lovely series of views of ironclad ships on the frozen Dnieper River during the Crimean War..

Text is in German. This set includes: 1 index 40 annual volumes from 1855 to 1894 19 volumes containing supplementary issues from 1860 to 1888 (the supplementary volumes contain multiple years per binding) August Petermann (1822-1878) was one of the most important cartographers of the nineteenth century, and his Mittheilungen (also known as the Geographische Mittheilungen, or 'Geographic Notifications') made public the geographic discoveries accompanied by some of the most accurate maps of the period. The journal began in 1855, and continued until 2004, shortly whereafter the cartographic holdings of the Perthes business were transferred to the University of Erfurt. The Mittheilungen carried notices of explorations in all parts of the world, but Petermann's particular interests were Africa - resulting in his 'sponsorship' of Heinrich Barth, among others - and the Polar regions. In fact, Petermann's writings on the Arctic are among the most numerous of his contributions to the journal, and in the first sixteen years of the journal seventeen maps of the Arctic or Antarctic appeared, together with eight in the supplementary volumes for this period. Petermann's concern for the cartography of these areas means that these are some of the best contemporary maps of the Polar regions to date. The explorers include some of the most important of the period: Beechey, Belcher, Osborn, M'Clintock M'Cormick, Kane, Franklin (searches), King, Armstrong, Richardson, Whymper, Nordenskiold, Hall, Lamont, Koldewey, Weyprecht, Hayes, Wiltschek, Chavanne, Rae, Rink, Nares, etc. Rare to find such a complete set.

        HISTORY OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA, WITH BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES AND ANECDOTES OF THE PRINCIPAL CHIEFS. EMBELLISHED WITH ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY PORTRAITS

      Philadelphia, 1855. Contemporary American red morocco gilt, covers elaborately blocked with a paneled design, spines gilt with raised bands, gilt turn-ins, a.e.g. Extremities slightly scuffed. Text lightly browned as usual, occasional light finger soiling. Very good. The third octavo edition of McKenney and Hall's classic work, after the first octavo edition of 1848-50, reduced from the folio format produced in 1836-44. The plates for the first four octavo editions were all produced by the same lithographer, J.T. Bowen, and the same high quality of printing and coloring of the plates is found throughout. McKenney and Hall's HISTORY OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF NORTH AMERICA... has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of American Indians. The portrait plates are based on paintings by artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington, D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the 19th century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola. After six years as superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the American Indians for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827 he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee, and Winnebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with Indian tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1829, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the West. Both authors, not unlike George Catlin, whom they tried to enlist in their publishing enterprise, saw their book as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. McKenney provided the biographies, many based on personal interviews, and Hall wrote the general history of the North American Indian.

        Coleccion de las diferentes suertes y actitudes [Tauromaquia]

      1855 - GOYA Y LUCIENTES, Francisco José de. Colección de las diferentes suertes y actitudes del arte de lidiar los toros, inventadas y grabadas al agua fuerte por Goya [Tauromaquia]. Madrid: Calcografía de la Imprenta Nacional, 1855. Thirty-three etched and aquatinted plates on heavy wove paper; original printed paper front wrapper with etched portrait of Goya and original printed paper rear wrapper with table of contents bound in appropriately. BOUND WITH: Eight etched and aquatinted plates (portrait of Goya and seven additional bullfighting scenes) on heavy laid paper with Arches watermark. [Paris: Loizelet, 1876]. Oblong folio, contemporary brown cloth boards with gilt lettering, expertly rebacked and recornered in calf, retaining the original stitching. Housed in custom half morocco clamshell box. $140,000.Rare second edition of Goya’s magisterial survey of the “fiesta nacional”â€"33 dramatic etched and aquatinted plates of bullfighting scenes in early impressions from the original plates etched by Goya. This copy bound with the seven additional plates published for the first time in the 1876 third edition.While most of Goya’s prints were conceived as series, only two such series were released during his lifetime: Caprichos and this, Tauromaquia, and consequently these works best reflect Goya’s own organization. These are “Goya’s most technically finished etchings and show the mastery of subtle effects he had gained through his experiments in The Disasters of War” (Tomlinson, 222). Only 33 plates were included in the initial issue of the series in 1816, released with the title Treinta y tres estampas que representan diferentes suertes y actitudes del arte de lidiar los Toros. A second editionâ€"the present copyâ€"was published in 1855, and a third was issued in Paris in 1876, with seven additional plates, under the title La Tauromachie. This second edition copy contains the complete 33 plates that appeared in both the first and second editions, finely printed here in black (umber) ink on wove paper, with the original front and rear printed paper wrappers bound in (with Goya’s engraved self-portrait on the front wrapper and the list of plates on the rear wrapper). In the 40-year interval between the appearance of the first edition and the printing of the second, it was inevitable that a few of the copperplates would have deteriorated slightly, apparently owing to the oxidization of the copper. For the most part, however, the plates are finely printed, beautiful impressions, retaining all the subtlety of Goya’s original designs in which he carefully mixed the techniques of aquatint, lavis, drypoint and burin. These second edition impressions are clearly superior to the heavily inked images pulled by Loizelet in the third edition some 20 years later (seven of which are included in this copy, making for convenient comparison between the two editions).At some point after the second edition the French engraver Loizelet bought the original Tauromaquia copperplates. Seven of the 33 plates had finished etchings on the reverse that Goya had made in preparation for the Tauromaquia but decided not to include as part of the final series. Loizelet was the first to publish these earlier designs, adding them to the original 33 in his edition printed in Paris in 1876, bringing the total number of images to 40. (Four other early plates remained unpublished.) According to Harris, Loizelet lettered the seven “new” plates A-G, and he issued these seven plates both with new impressions of the original 33 and separately, presumably for those who already owned a copy of the first or second edition. The seven “new” plates included in this copy are unlettered, possibly indicating early impressions. Loizelet printed his edition in dark sepia ink on laid paper with the Arches watermark.The title Goya gave to the series reflects an intention to depict different bullfighting maneuvers. However Goya also included within the etchings [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

The pagination of the monograph is confusing, it has however the same number of plates and pages as Horn & Schenkling. Édouard Ménétries (1802-1861) was a French entomologist. In 1826 Ménétires was invited to St Petersburg and became curator of the entomological collections of the Zoological Museum of the Academy of Sciences and the present work describes the butterflies of the collection. Together with Eduard von Eversmann, Fischer de Waldheim, Ménétries became one of the most important Russian entomologists.Provenance: Bookplate of Otto Bang-Haas and Japanese stamp of Kikumaro Okano on title.Horn-Schenkling 14933.

        ROUTE FROM LIVERPOOL TO GREAT SALT LAKE VALLEY...TOGETHER WITH A GEOGRAPHICAL AND HISTORICAL DESCRIPTION OF UTAH...ALSO, AN AUTHENTIC HISTORY OF THE LATTER-DAY SAINTS' EMIGRATION FROM EUROPE

      Liverpool, 1855. Quarto. Contemporary three-quarter morocco and cloth, gilt. Light soiling to text, a few minor marginal stains, a few minor marginal tears. Very good. One of the most important publications devoted to the Mormon emigration, and a landmark in the artistic depiction of western scenes. The plates are after illustrations by Frederick Piercy. "This elaborately prepared and illustrated book was published as a monument to the Mormon emigration to Utah, and as a means of attracting further emigrants. Piercy made a special trip to America [in 1853] to make sketches for the plates, which are some of the best western views of the period" - Streeter. The outstanding views show New Orleans, Natchez, Vicksburg, Nauvoo, Council Bluffs, Laramie, Fort Bridger, and Scott's Bluff. "...One of the most elaborately and beautifully illustrated of western books" - Howes. "...One of the basic sources of illustrated Western Americana of the period" - Taft. "One of the most illuminating maps of the West to appear during 1855...it shows Utah in all its glory. This is not only an important map in the history of Mormons, but is in every sense an important map in the history of the West, giving as it does a carefully drawn picture of that entire area" - Wheat.

In this treatise, he presented what must be regarded as one of the earliest attempts at a standardised phonetic alphabet for all languages - a function today fulfilled by the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), which is still based primarily on the Latin alphabet. Among the many alphabetical systems which Lepsius takes into account are also Egyptian hieroglyphs as well as Hebrew, Arabic, Farsi, Sanscrit, Bengali, Armenian, Malay, Chinese, etc. - Somewhat browned and brownstained throughout with a noticeable waterstain.

        [JAPANESE WOOD BLOCK PRINT SHOWING THE BLACK SHIPS OF COMMODORE MATTHEW C. PERRY'S EXPEDITION ENTERING TOKYO HARBOR]

      [Tokyo, 1855. Old fold lines, some minor wear and soiling. Near fine. Large wood block print, comprised of two sheets, showing the disposition of the Japanese soldiers and ships in preparation for the arrival of Commodore Perry's American fleet, seen sailing into Tokyo harbor at the right side of the image. The top third of the print is comprised of text (in Japanese characters). Three large American ships dominate the right side of the print, while several smaller boats dot the rest of the harbor. The whole is dotted with Japanese characters, denoting various people and places around the harbor. Perry first arrived in Japan on July 8, 1853 with a fleet of four ships, flying his pennant on the steam frigate Susquehanna. This first visit lasted ten days and culminated on July 14 with Perry's presentation of a letter from the President of the United States to the Japanese commissioners. Perry then absented himself for seven months, returning on February 11, 1854 for a stay of over four months. He negotiated a treaty opening Japan to trade with the western world, providing for a U.S. consul in Japan, and protecting visiting ships and crews. Perry's visit to Japan remains one of the most important events in the diplomatic history between western and eastern nations. A handsome print, showing the Japanese side of this important historic event.

A superior copy of an. uncommon book. (#151670). First edition. The first collection of Hoffmann's tales to be published in America, including many stories printed here for the first time in English. "While the publisher does not reveal sources, the probabilities are that this collection, like HOFFMANN'S FAIRY TALES (1857), was translated through a French intermediary version. This is the first English appearance in book form for many of these stories and the only appearance for a couple. The translation, however, is very bad.

This beautiful painting of three Indians laying up two canoes on the bank of a river in wooded mountainous terrain is the work of George Gibbs (1815-73), ethnographer, mapmaker, geologist, historian, attorney, and, for nearly twelve years, an explorer, artist, and administrator in the Pacific Northwest. The scene is likely the western entrance to the Columbia River Gorge, with the Cascade Mountain Range in the near distance. The painting shares several geographic and artistic touchpoints with the annotated on-the-spot drawing from 1850 that Gibbs made farther east on the river at Oak Point, illustrated in David Bushnell's DRAWINGS BY GEORGE GIBBS IN THE FAR NORTHWEST, 1849-1851. The painting is signed in a slightly stylized version of the signature found throughout Gibbs' personal and professional papers. Gibbs learned to paint while attending the Round Hill School in Northampton, Massachusetts, the first experimental prep school in the country, founded by future historian George Bancroft, and Joseph Green Cogswell, later director of the first great public library in the United States, the Astor Library. Gibbs grew up surrounded by great American art. "Gibbs' father commissioned Gilbert Stuart to paint Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe; these portraits hung in Gibbs' childhood home at Sunswick Farms, Astoria, New York. Stuart also painted portraits of 'Colonel' George Gibbs and Laura Wolcott Gibbs, his parents" - Stephen Dow Beckham. Papers from Gibbs' adolescence indicate the development of his interest in science and in outdoor life; and one very interesting letter, a harbinger of a career to come, written in 1833 from Boston to his sister, Eliza, includes an account of seventeen-year-old Gibbs' encounter with John James Audubon (Wisconsin Historical Society): "Dear Sister, I have just returned from a visit to Mr. Audubon. THE Audubon. But I will tell you all in order. Saturday I went to see the prints of his birds at the Athenaeum. They are superb, of full size on elephant paper. Turkeys & eagles as well as small birds and large as life & the colouring & execution beautiful. They are all of them represented in the act of seizing their prey or in some natural and striking position. The landscapes birds butterflies animals etc are very fine. His son paints the flowers & branches of trees on which many rest, from nature, they are very beautiful. He has not near finished his collection, though about two hundred are done... "I killed [a moth] this morning with nitric acid, and by way of introduction agreed to take him to Mr. Audubon's & Aunt Ruth who had been before went to. Mr. A was unwell & we took the pleasure of seeing him. He is a complete original & a remarkable man. [Audubon was] extremely glad of the moth & Mr. A [illegible] that I would accept of a little shell he had picked up on the coast of Florida as a remembrance. [Audubon] has a large collection of stuffed birds as a reference for description. He showed me some of the original paintings. The feathers look like real ones every division accurately transferred...." Gibbs earned a Harvard law degree, then began a desultory, unenthusiastic, unprofitable law practice. "[In 1843, Gibbs became librarian of the New-York Historical Society], cataloging the collection and steering it toward an emphasis on American subjects. [Gibbs started another law firm], but his work for the historical society [which he genuinely enjoyed and committed himself to] absorbed more and more of his time. "The excitement over the discovery of gold in California finally dislodged Gibbs completely from his law practice, and in 1849 he left New York for St. Louis, Missouri. Joining a march of the Mounted Riflemen, he traveled overland from Fort Leavenworth to Oregon City. On the trip he made many drawings and kept a journal, portions of which were published in the New York papers. His lively entries described the climate and landscape, life in camp, and encounters with Sioux Indians and emigrants on the Oregon Trail. "Gibbs settled in Astoria, Oregon, near the mouth of the Columbia River. In 1850 he was appointed deputy collector of the port, but he resigned later that year in the aftermath of having embarrassed his superior by an overzealous prosecution of the customs laws. In 1851 he joined Reddick McKee on an expedition to draw up land treaties with Indian tribes west of the Sacramento Valley. In five months McKee's group met with nearly 10,000 Indians and concluded five treaties. Gibbs, who had already been interested in Indian languages, compiled vocabulary lists of fifteen indigenous tongues and worked on maps of the region. In 1852 he tried his hand at prospecting in northern California with less than impressive results. By the end of the year he was back in Astoria, again as a customs collector, but when Franklin Pierce took office in 1853, Gibbs lost his political appointment. "Gibbs soon found other work. In 1853 George B. McClellan hired him as a geologist and ethnologist to help survey a railroad route to the Pacific. In 1854 Gibbs left Oregon for good, settling near Fort Steilacoom in the Washington Territory on a farm he called 'Chetlah.' He was rarely there, however, continuing his surveying and conducting ethnological research. Working for the Indian Commission in the territory, Gibbs helped shape Indian policy. He argued for keeping Native Americans on their traditional homelands to preserve the cultural and linguistic diversity that he knew was dissolving quickly on reservations. He also campaigned for the use of Indian place names, which he often noted on the maps he made. Gibbs served briefly as the acting governor of Washington Territory and was appointed brigadier general of the militia in 1855. "In 1857 and 1858 Gibbs was again in the field, this time surveying the 49th parallel between the United States and Canada for the Northwest Boundary Survey. Working for Archibald Campbell, he traversed the border from the Pacific to the Rockies. Gibbs took every opportunity to add to his knowledge of Indian languages, and also collected animal, insect, and plant specimens, many of which he sent to scientists like Louis Agassiz and Asa Gray" - Bethany Neubauer, AMERICAN NATIONAL BIOGRAPHY. Raymond Settle's introduction to THE MARCH OF THE MOUNTED RIFLEMAN, which draws from the journals made by Gibbs and that expedition's leader, Major Osborne Cross, endorses the importance of Gibbs western sketches: "As an artist Gibbs exhibited considerable talent, both in sketching outdoor scenes and in drawing from life. He made what was perhaps the first drawing of Shoshone Falls, and sketched various scenes in eastern Oregon, on the Columbia River, and while crossing the Cascade Mountains...[In 1851, while associated with Oregon Territory Governor John P. Gaines in the making of treaties with the Calapooya Indians, and later that same year with Reddick McKee], Gibbs made many drawings...numerous drawings." Bushnell notes that Gibbs' sketches of the Pacific Northwest impressed Seth Eastman, who incorporated them into his own work. Eastman's sepia drawing, "Humboldt, California, 1851," later made into an engraving for Schoolcraft, is annotated: "S. Eastman from a sketch by G. Gibbs" (SETH EASTMAN - A PORTFOLIO OF NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS, pl. 47). George Gibbs authored, usually under the imprimatur of the Smithsonian Institution, several important books on Indian languages and dialects, and tribal life, in the Pacific Northwest. His scholarship in such works as NOTES ON THE TINNEH OR CHEPEWYAN INDIANS OF BRITISH AND RUSSIAN AMERICA (1867) and ALPHABETICAL VOCABULARIES OF THE CLALLAM AND THE LUMMI (1863) was so meticulously researched and well-illustrated that historian William Goetzmann calls Gibbs "one of the founders of scientific studies in the Far West." Gibbs' notes and interpretations of 19th-century treaties between Indian tribes and federal and state governments (the drafts for those treaties are often in his handwriting) are used to this day to argue lawsuits involving American Indian interests, many concerning the building of casinos on reservation lands Gibbs wrote books concerning American law. His propagandist history of the Federalist Party, MEMOIRS OF THE ADMINISTRATIONS OF WASHINGTON AND JOHN ADAMS (1846) began as a biographical study of his great-grandfather, Declaration of Independence signer Oliver Wolcott, the senior, and his grandfather, Oliver Wolcott, United States Treasury Secretary and Connecticut governor. Terrible health, rheumatic gout, kept Gibbs out of the U.S. Army during the Civil War, though he did volunteer. "He became an important member of the Loyal National League and the Loyal Union Club. During the latter part of his life he lived in Washington, D.C. ['in the Smithsonian tower!' (Beckham)], where his extensive knowledge of the northwestern Indians [and his collection of their artifacts] was often employed by the Smithsonian Institution" - DAB. Artwork by George Gibbs is rarely found in the marketplace. Artnet and AskArt do not report any works having come into the market. He donated the majority of his western sketches to the Smithsonian Institution. The Peabody Museum at Harvard University owns a small holding of his sketches, as does the National Park Service collection at Fort Vancouver. Aside from the present example, we are not familiar with any other large scale painting by Gibbs - nor is the leading authority on Gibbs, Lewis and Clark College professor Stephen Dow Beckham, who has written about Gibbs since his 1970 dissertation, "George Gibbs, 1815-1873: Historian and Ethnologist" - making this newly discovered, quite gorgeous, picture a significant addition to the art canon of the American Northwest.

        HISTORIA GENERAL Y NATURAL DE LAS INDIAS, ISLAS Y TIERRA- FIRME DEL MAR ODEANO "COTEJADA CON EL CODICE ORIGINAL, ENRIQUE-CIDA CON ENMIENDAS Y ADICIONES DEL AUTOR POR JOSE AMADOR DE LOS RIOS

      Madrid, 1855. Half titles. Large, thick quarto. Contemporary tree calf, raised bands, neatly rebacked with original gilt spines laid down, gilt morocco labels. 20th-century ownership signature on front free endpaper of the first volume and half title of the fourth volume. Plates slightly browned and foxed, text generally clean. A very good set. The first complete edition of Oviedo, publishing much of the manuscript for the first time, and containing the first full-length printing of the sections originally published in Spain in 1526, 1535, and 1547. "Contains so much material not included in the original Spanish editions...that it may properly be included in this compilation as a new work" - Howes. Edited by Jose Amador de los Rios, this comprehensive edition also adds maps, a bibliography, and an excellent biography of Oviedo. Palau characterizes this edition as "magnifica en todos conceptos, tanto por el merito historico y literario como por la presentacion nitida y correcta." Oviedo's account of events differs considerably from that of Las Casas; indeed, the two found themselves on opposite sides in many matters, including the debate concerning the nature and rights of the Indians. A Spanish official and courtier, Oviedo proved to be an acute observer of the natural history of the New World. He spent almost twenty years in Panama, Colombia, and on Hispaniola, and observed with great interest the Indians and the animal and vegetable life of the new lands. To him we owe the first extant descriptions of many New World species, as well as the best picture of what the New World was like in the early 1500s. "This is the source from which most literary writers have drawn their accounts of the early occurrences in the New World" - Church.
