        Memoirs of the Life, Writings, and Discoveries of Sir Isaac Newton. 2 volumes.

      Hamilton, Adams 1855., Edinburgh: - 2 volumes. Tall 8vo. xxii, [2], 478; xxii, [2], 478 pp. Frontis. portraits, figs., index. Contemporary blind- and gilt-tooled straight grain calf, gilt-stamped calf spine labels, all edges marbled. ANDREW CARNEGIE'S COPY: Bookplate of Andrew Carnegie. Near Fine. First edition. A beautifully bound copy of the first major biography of Sir Isaac Newton, written by "the father of modern experimental optics," Sir David Brewster. Newton was very much a hero of Brewster's, and after the success of his slim popular biography The Life of Sir Isaac Newton in 1931, Brewster spent another 20 years doing research and compiling this more complete account. While Brewster's admiration is nearly palpable throughout both volumes, faltering only briefly when the subject of Newton's interest in alchemy arises ("There is no problem of more difficult solution than that which relates to the belief in alchemy, and to the practice of its arts, by men of high character and lofty attainments." â€" 372). Brewster, a devout Christian, could not countenance such irreligious experiments. PROVENANCE: Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) was one of the most successful industrialists and philanthropists in American history, and for a number of years held the title of richest man in America. After accumulating one of the greatest fortunes in the world, Carnegie spent the last 18 years of his life giving 90% of it away, starting charitable foundations, founding Universities, and building around 3,000 "Carnegie" libraries in the United States, Britain, Canada, and other English-speaking countries. A serious bibliophile, Carnegie wrote a few books himself, including An American Four-in-hand in Britain and Triumphant Democracy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [MANUSCRIPT REPORT ON THE ARRIVAL OF A BRITISH SHIP AT NAGASAKI, WITH FIVE LARGE WATERCOLOR SKETCHES]

      [Nagasaki, 1855. [6]pp., plus five color sketches on three sheets, approximately 16 x 22 inches. Manuscript: Leaves tied with waste paper. Light soiling and creasing at edges. Drawings: Ink and water color. Sheets each formed by two joined folio leaves. Backed with tissue. Heavy worming to original drawings, somewhat alleviated by tissue repair. Overall, good plus. A short report written in a Japanese scribal hand, describing the arrival of an English ship at Nagasaki. The report is accompanied by five large ink and watercolor sketches of the H.M.S. Saracen and related images, comprising depictions of the ship, a British naval rating and an English gentleman, a red British ensign flag, and two pigs. Chief among these is a fine, large rendering of the Saracen herself, a ten-gun "Cherokee class" sloop, which the Royal Navy produced in large quantity during the mid-19th century, and which served as a dependable survey and supply vessel on worldwide voyages. The United States, with its commission of the Commodore Perry's expedition, was not the only western power attempting to gain a foothold in Japan for the purposes of trade at this time. Six months after Perry's Kanagawa Treaty, in October 1854, the United Kingdom and Japan agreed to the Anglo-Japanese Friendship Treaty, which roughly paralleled the provisions of the earlier U.S. agreement, and opened the ports of Nagasaki and Hakodate to British ships. From John Tronson's narrative of the voyage of the H.M.S. Barracouta in the Far East during this time, it is known that the H.M.S. Saracen arrived in Nagasaki, where Tronson's own ship had been anchored for several days, at the end of August 1855. It is therefore probable that the watercolor of the Saracen and other sketches date from roughly this period. While the choice of British dress and ensign as subject matter reflect an obvious interest in foreign appearances, the porcine imagery at first seems less explainable in such a manner. A letter from a Japanese supply officer in response to a request for pigs and other livestock transcribed in Tronson's account, however, plainly suggests a scarcity at that time: "The pig is no common article of food among the Japanese. It is bred by the compradors, who are appointed for the Dutchmen, and for the Chinese who have their residences at Nagasaki. Therefore, pigs are bred in small number." An interesting document of the arrival of European sea trade from a Japanese perspective, with well-executed artwork.

        History of the Indian Tribes of North America,

      Philadelphia: D. Rice & A. N. Hart,, 1855. with biographical sketches and anecdotes of the principal chiefs. Embellished with one hundred and twenty portraits, from the Indian Gallery in the Department of War, at Washington. 3 volumes, large octavo (263 x 168 mm). Publisher's deluxe binding of dark brown morocco over bevelled boards, spines gilt lettered, blind ruled and with a blind "Aldine leaf" motif in compartments, sides blind stamped with a large ornamental block, all edges gilt, yellow coated endpapers. 120 hand-coloured lithograph plates by J. T. Bowen, mostly after Charles Bird King. Pictorial bookplate of George Raithel Brooks, St Louis, director of the Missouri Historical Society. Bindings a little rubbed at extremities, accasional thumbing, inner joints cracked but sound. A very good set. Third octavo edition, originally published 1848–50, following the folio edition of 1836-44. A magnificent record of Native American dignitaries - "the most colourful portraits of Indians ever executed" (Howes). McKenney, who was Superintendent of Indian trade from 1816-1822 and headed the US Bureau of Indian Affairs from 1824-1830, collaborated with James Hall, the Illinois journalist, lawyer, state treasurer and from 1833 Cincinnati banker, to produce this famous work. The text, which was written by Hall based on information supplied by McKenney, takes the form of a series of biographies of leading figures amongst the Indian nations, followed by a general history of the Native Americans. The work is now famous for its colour plate portraits of the chiefs, warriors and women of the various tribes, faithful copies of original oils by Charles Bird King painted from life in his studio in Washington (McKenney commissioned him to record the visiting Indian delegates) or worked up by King from the water-colours of the young frontier artist, James Otto Lewis. The original paintings were destroyed in the disastrous Smithsonian fire of 1865 so their appearance in this work preserves the only known likeness of many of the most prominent Native American leaders of the early 19th century. This was the most elaborate plate book produced in the United States to that date, and its publication involved a number of different printers and lithographers.

        MANUSCRIPT REPORT ON THE ARRIVAL OF A BRITISH SHIP AT NAGASAKI, WITH FIVE LARGE WATERCOLOR SKETCHES].

      [Nagasaki. ca. 1854-1855]. - [6]pp., plus five color sketches on three sheets, approximately 16 x 22 inches. Manuscript: Leaves tied with waste paper. Light soiling and creasing at edges. Drawings: Ink and water color. Sheets each formed by two joined folio leaves. Backed with tissue. Heavy worming to original drawings, somewhat alleviated by tissue repair. Overall, good plus. A short report written in a Japanese scribal hand, describing the arrival of an English ship at Nagasaki. The report is accompanied by five large ink and watercolor sketches of the H.M.S. Saracen and related images, comprising depictions of the ship, a British naval rating and an English gentleman, a red British ensign flag, and two pigs.

        Map of the Town Center and Entire Suburbs of Canton

      [Prob. Canton], 1855 Approx. 29 x 53 in. (73 x 135 cm). Original hand-coloring of selected features, some in wash, some in outline. Old folds, some separations at minor losses at folds, expertly mounted. Light browning and spotting. Very good condition. Archivally framed. A splendid display piece. A RARE MAP OF GUANGZHOU. Daniel Vrooman came to China in 1852 as a missionary from the American Presbyterian Church. Later U.S. vice-consul in Canton, Vrooman is said to have introduced the first cotton spinning plant in China. "No Western maps of the walled city existed until the middle of the nineteenth century, since the city was off-limits to foreigners." (Garret, Heaven is High, the Emperor Far Away, p. 142). Because foreigners were forbidden from entering the walled city, Vrooman devised an ingenious plan to draw this map of Canton. "A very good map of the enceinte [urban fortification] was made by an American missionary, Daniel Vrooman, by taking the angles of all the conspicuous buildings therein, with the highest points in the suburbs; he then taught a native to pace the streets between them, compass in hand (noting courses and distances, which he fixed by the principal gates), until a complete plan was filled out. When the city was opened four years afterwards this map was found to need no important corrections" (Williams, The Middle Kingdom, p. 169). In addition to the walled city, this plan shows the area occupied by the Thirteen Factories shortly before they were destroyed in the Arrow War in 1856. The Thirteen Factories was the riverfront area outside the city walls reserved for foreign trade. The first area of China opened for foreign trade in the 18th century, the Thirteen Factories helped to make Guangzhou (or Canton, as it was then called by Europeans) one of the most wealthiest cities in the world. EXTREMELY RARE. Cordier 304 cites only the 1860 edition, and it appears that scholars are aware only of that edition, which incorporates the new artificial island Shamin (for example, the copy at the National Library of Australia is the 1860 edition).

Redrawn from official sources with emendations), Commissioner's preface, preface of the writer.

He wrote as a member of a committee for the American Reform Tract and Book Society, and the Kansas League of Cincinnati. The map is reproduced in Wheat's Transmississippi West as noted above."

        Views of London

      Leporello-style album housing 26 mounted "cartes porcelaines" with views of Victorian London from engravings by Wood, with captions in English and some in French, views include London Bridge, Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, the Royal Exchange, the Post Office, Trafalgar Sqare, the Hungerford Suspension Bridge, Hampton Court Palace, the British Museum, the Colosseum at Regent's Park, and the Crystal Palace at Sydenham. Oblong 16mo. Original embossed paper case. London (J.T. Wood) n.d. (circa 1855). "Cartes porcelaines" was a name given to a glossy white cardboard whose surface recalled that of porcelain. Illustrations were engraved on lithographic stones before being printed on the cards. These cards first appeared in Belgium around 1840 and were only prevalent through the 1860s, when it became well-known that the use of metal powders and lead oxides were toxic for printers. Together with the inclusion of the Crystal Palace, which was built in Hyde Park for the Great Exhibition of 1851 but relocated next to Sydenham Hill in 1854, dating of the album is possible.
