        Lengthy Autograph Letter Signed with initials, 2 pp on one folio sheet, with fully signed transmittal envelope, Providence, R.I., Octr. 15, 1927

      Very Good. Lovecraft was a voluminous letter writer, especially to fellow writers of fantasy, horror, and weird tales. In particular, he had a lengthy period of correspondence with Clark Ashton Smith. They became friends in 1922 when Lovecraft sent Smith fan letter after his "The Hashish Eater, or The Apocalypse of Evil" was published in "Ebony and Crystal." Smith (1893-1961), the poet, painter and fellow fantasy and horror writer, along with Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft became known as the Triumvirate of "Weird Tales."   This letter was written after Lovecraft had spent a couple of years in New York City and had returned home to Providence. It is a revealing letter in how Lovecraft sees himself through his upbringing in New England and also a letter that refers to many of his friends and colleagues in the world of fantasy and horror fiction.   Lovecraft begins by commenting on Smith's paintings which Smith had sent him. "I certainly did enjoy that shipment of paintings" and further comments on their "distorted shapes of lush, unwholesome, extra-terrestrial vegetation." He mentions that he had not yet sent them on to Dwyer, but wishes that he "had Wandrei's financial resources, so that I might invest in one or two!" He refers here to Donald Wandrei, a writer whose work also appeared in "Weird Tales." Wandrei, a friend and protégé of Lovecraft, was a member of the "Lovecraft Circle," along with Clark Ashton Smith and Frank Belknap Long. Wandrei is also one of the editors of the Selected Letters of Lovecraft.   Commenting on "futility & work," Lovecraft informs his correspondent, "I have come to the comfortably elderly condition of not caring a rap whether I do anything or not! I had really much rather read than write things." Regarding writing, he says, "What I absolutely must have... is a general atmosphere exactly like that of my youth... I did not realise my dependence on these things till I tried living in New York... I discovered that the cosmic & cosmopolitan element in me is the thinnest of veneers, & that I am actually - so far as all the deeper emotions... are concerned - an extremely localized New Englander of the most pronounced type...." He continues, "My ideal is to be an absolutely passive & non-participating spectator to the pageant of meaningless existence...."   Continuing further, he discusses his family. "I simply don't care whether or not I see & talk to anybody except my family. My family don't care for the weird, but they don't object to my caring for it - hence provide an atmosphere of friendly harmony even though they aren't likely to share my ravings anent [sic] Algernon Blackwood or Arthur Machen...." He then presents his upbringing in a "certain kind of old town" in great detail. He comments that these things are "all that spell reality in life to me" and that when he is apart from them, "everything becomes spurious & two-dimensional - vague fragments of a dream...." He concludes this discussion by saying, "That ethereal sense of identity with my own native & hereditary soil & institutions is the one essential condition of intellectual life... which I cannot do without. Like Antaeus of old, my strength depends on repeated contact with the soul of the Mother Earth that bore me."   Lovecraft then mentions "Weird Tales" publisher Farnsworth Wright saying, "Glad you've sent E&C [Ebony & Crystal] to Wright. He is by no means uncultivated or unappreciative personally, despite the bonehead policy he is forced to follow...." When Wright took over publication of "Weird Tales" in 1924, he did not publish many of Lovecraft's stories as Lovecraft had criticized Wright's own writing previously. Also mentioned is Hugh Rankin who was an illustrator for "Weird Tales," his first illustration having been published in 1927. "Glad Rankin has done something... like justice... he is really the best, by far of all the artists whom W.T. [Weird Tales] has ever had...."   The letter ends with a very Lovecraft type rant about a "devilish dental siege" Lovecraft is experiencing and then tells Smith that he will "show you any weird tales of mine as soon as they're written... You have probably received "The Recluse" containing my article. And tells him that "Cook is here...he likes your "Passing of Aphrodite" immensely. It is the first contribution to be accepted for the second issue of The Recluse..."   W. Paul Cook was a printer from Athol, Massachusetts and a publisher of amateur magazines. He published "The Vagrant" which ran from 1918 to 1927 and was a big encourager of Lovecraft submitting stories. His later magazine, "The Recluse," was published in only one issue, in 1927. Lovecraft's "Supernatural Horror in Literature" was published in this issue, along with stories by Smith, Wandrei and others. [See: "The Gernsback Days: A Study of the Evolution of Modern Science Fiction..., by Mike Ashley et al, pp. 115-116.]   Before he signs his initials, he thanks his correspondent for "that nameless head from the black planet, Yadoth." And, in a postscript on the top of the first page, in very Lovecraftian terms, he writes, "that new head has a particular & specific horror. It makes one feel uneasy... when inexplicable occurrences happen...". Paper is darkened with age, with one small hole visible in image slightly affecting text but all words are able to be read. The letter is partially published in Selected Letters (Arkham House) 301.

        Photo - Rare Set of Glass Lantern Slides - Sennar Dam Construction

      Sudan, 1922. Sennar, Sudan, 1922-1926. Set of 39 photographic glass lantern slide views illustrating the construction of the Sennar Dam, each numbered and captioned "Sennar Dam" in manuscript. Contained in the four original cardboard boxes bearing the label of London's lantern slide publishers, Ilford Limited. Glass slides measure 8 x 8 cm. Boxes measures 9 x 9 cm. One glass plate cracked though not intrusive to image, otherwise the lot in very good original condition, striking images. The University of Santa Barbara Special Collections holds an album of 16 photographs of the Sennar Dam construction. A rare and spectacular set of lantern slide photographs memorializing one of the largest irrigation projects in the world - the Gezira Scheme - which was conceived and begun by colonial leaders while Sir Reginald Wingate was Governor-General of Anglo-Egyptian Sudan. Specifically showcasing the construction of the Sennar Dam [Sinnar Dam], these photographs show the magnitude of the project as it was underway. A corroborative English and Sudanese undertaking, labourers painstakingly cut through enormous rocks and toiled in high heat to erect the monumental structure, ultimately creating the cornerstone of the cotton industry which has sustained Sudan's economy ever since. Two images show engineering plans; thirty-seven are photographs of construction in progress. The Sinnar Dam is the oldest dam in Sudan. Still today over half of Sudan's agricultural production is reliant upon the water provided by the dam. Located approximately 300 kilometres south of Khartoum, and only 15 kilometres from Sennar, it is the reservoir that provides irrigation water. The Sennar Dam project was a successful undertaking to support for crop irrigation in the Al Jazirah region, which lies between the Blue Nile and the White Nile. The dam was the cornerstone of the Gezira Scheme, which also involved the creation of a network of canals. The Gezira Scheme was begun by the British while the area was governed as part of Anglo-Egyptian Sudan. Reginald Wingate, then Governor-General of Sudan, had envisioned farmers growing wheat, but the direction was abandoned by colonial authorities for a more lucrative cash crop - cotton. Egyptian-type long staple cotton would be grown, which would provide a raw material for the British textile industry. Cotton had first been grown in the area in 1904. After many experiments with irrigation, 24 square kilometres was put under cultivation in 1914. Initially financed by the Sudan Plantations Syndicate in London, the British government later guaranteed capital to develop and sustain the scheme. Finally, after experiencing the lowest Nile flood in about 2 centuries, the Sennar Dam was constructed on the Blue Nile to provide a reservoir of water. Work on the dam first started in 1914, but was almost immediately interrupted by the outbreak of World War One. Construction began again in 1919, the contractors being the Sudan Construction Company, who carried on the work until 1921, when it became clear that the estimated costs would be considerably exceeded. Further funds were obtained and in 1922 the project continued. By diverting water from the Blue Nile through canals to tenant farms lying between the Blue and White Nile rivers, the completion of the dam in 1925 indeed spurred agricultural activity. Al Jazirah became Sudan's major agricultural region with more than 10,000 square kilometres under cultivation. Designed by Sir Murdoch MacDonald and built by British contractor, S Pearson & Sons Ltd., the structure is approximately 3 kilometres in length. English civil engineer Sir John Watson Gibson OBE (1885-1947) was Pearson's site agent. [Gibson played an instrumental role in the development of the water supply infrastructure in the former British Empire, and also in the design of Mulberry Harbour used in the Normandy landings.] Governor-General of the Sudan, Sir Geoffrey Francis Archer attended the official opening of the dam on January 21, 1926. Archer was enthusiastic about the massive scheme to dam the Blue Nile at Sennar so as to irrigate the Gezira plain for cotton cultivation. He described the plan as the application of "western science to native economic conditions". The project was nationalized by the government in 1950. Cotton production increased in the 1970s, but, as per Governor's Wingate's vision, by the 1990swheat production increased, and has supplanted at least one third of the land formerly seeded with cotton. . Very Good.

        Scalp Dance of the Minatarres

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Ch. Vogel after Bodmer. Small marginal tears not affecting plate area. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) An important record of this energetic victory dance, executed by Bodmer during the winter of 1833-1834 when the travelers stayed at Fort Clark on the banks of the upper reaches of Missouri River. The Hidatsa's came to the fort twice to perform their scalp dance, once in February 1834 after a retaliatory raid against the Assiniboins, and again in April after a surprise attack on a Sioux camp. The figure shown center right is Máhchsi-Níhka (`Young War Eagle'), a deaf-mute who had played a prominent part in the raid against the Assiniboins. To the far left is Síh-Sä (`Red Feather'), a Mandan man who had been raised by the factor of Fort Clark, although he still has relatives in the village. The women play a principal role in the dance and have donned military attire, painted their faces like warriors, carried weapons and displayed scalp trophies. Musical accompaniment is provided by the men with the drums and rattles. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        Peter Whiffle His Life And Works

      New York: Alfred A Knopf. NF/VG. 1922. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 1st edition/1st printing in 1st printing DJ of author's first novel. SIGNED by the author on the front end page: 'Sincerely, Carl Van Vechten.' The Near Fine book is bound in a brown and tan decorative paper over boards binding, with a light tan cloth spine with a paper title label. It is straight, clean and tightly bound with no handwriting or soiling. There are some small, faint tanning spots to the spine cloth. The paper-covered boards have a bit of edgewear to the corners, and the publisher stained black upper page edges has a small scratch and slight fading next to the spine. The price intact original DJ is in Very Good condition. The text on the DJ is intact - surprising since there's a 'lot' of text (front, back and a publisher mailing list form on the back flap). There are narrow edge chips at fold ends ranging in size from 1/4" to 3/4" (the one at the upper back spine fold), a touch of edgewear, and a partially open narrow tear just inside the back flap fold. Where there is no missing material the tears have been stablized by clear tape on the reverse side at some time in the past. There is also mild age toning around the edges of the front/back panels ('much' less toning than it looks like in my scans), plus a couple of small thumb smudges - one each front/back - and a small amount of surface rubbing at the spine ends. The DJ is now protected by removable clear mylar. Unusual to find the 1st printing of this early title author-signed, with or without the 1st printing DJ. ; 7-1/4" x 5-3/8"; 247 pages; Signed by Author .

        The Novels.

      London: J. M. Dent and Sons Ltd.,, 1922. With illustrations by Charles E. Brock. 6 volumes, octavo (180 x 120 mm). Bound for Scroll Club in crushed purple morocco, raised bands, titles to compartments gilt, top edges and turn-ins gilt, purple linen endpapers. Colour frontispiece to each volume, 90 similar plates in all. Spines slightly darkened, margins of text blocks gently toned, light dampstains to top and fore margins of final 3 leaves of Mansfield Park, text block of Emma cracked between half-title and frontispiece but firm. An excellent set. An attractively bound set of the charmingly illustrated novels, first published with Brock's illustrations between 1907 and 1909. C. E. Brock (1870?-1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen for Macmillan's 1895-7 series, though he illustrated only Pride and Prejudice, with Hugh Thomson illustrating the other five titles. That series appeared in black and white, which better suited Thomson's skilful use of line. A decade later J. M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite in colour, and also to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. The colourful costumes and interior decor depicted here are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, as Charles Brock and his brother Henry collected antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.

        Remarkable Hills on the upper Missouri

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. Aquatint engraving by Salathé after Bodmer. Tear to upper margin just touching plate area. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A composite plate made up from nine separate views, but with plain borders between each image. Numbered in the plate from 1 to 9 they were all sketched during the journey up river aboard the 60-foot keelboat Flora. Prince Maximilian and his party left Fort Union on 6 July and eventually arrived at Fort McKenzie on 9 August 1833 traveling through a number of different regions including the Mauvaises Terres and the Stone Walls (e.g. Nos. 2, 6 and others in the present composite, an area that Maximilian wrote of as `the most interesting part of the whole course of the Missouri'), also included are images of formations now known as Dike and Citadel Rock (nos. 4 and 5). Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        Chilton Automotive Directory, January 1922

      Philadelphia: Chilton, 1922. Thick Large Octavo. 1130p. Advertises Index. One of the rarest of the early Chilton directories. To illustrate its scarcity the Smithsonian only has the 1921 and 1923. It does not appear in the holdings of C H Motor Car Library. The New York Public Library has the 1913-1921 volumes but does not show the 1922 edition. Besides being the "car collector bible" for knowing the manufactures of parts and many images, it also lists the local trade organizations (most of which no longer exist). Pages 935-958 list the Table of Serial Numbers both for Passenger and Commercial Cars. The last 180 pages detail exact measurements for carburetor, ball and roller bearing tables, brake lining specifications, etc. Bound in orange cloth lettered in black, spine lettering black, some soiling to covers, inner hinges re-enforced with cloth tape.

        Group of Love Letters to Flora Temple Lash, whom he married, with sketches and related ephemera

      - 20 letters, 59 pages, several letters illustrated with sketches, letters dated 1922-1941, the bulk from 1923-1924, with 9 pencil and pen sketches, 17 printed and manuscript ephemeral items, including: exhibition lists, catalogs and price lists, Christmas cards designed and printed by the artist, the ephemera dates from 1912-1941, with nine snapshot photographs, plus accompanying negatives. Collection of love letters from Albert Sterner, an academically trained artist, painter, draughtsman and print-maker, who as an older married man, at the age of 60, seems to have fallen hard for the younger Flora Temple Lash. Sterner divorced his first wife and later married Flora. The letters discuss Sterner¿s artistic life and his relationship with Flora. [March 14, 1923] New York, to Flora Temple Lash, Philadelphia ¿Darling! If ever in my life I did what I longed not to do it was then when the door closed last night and I left you. I crossed the wet street and looked up at your windows but you were busy ¿ undressing ¿ going in your little bed where but a moment before you had lain beside me. It was heavenly sweet that quiet embrace ¿ It was so close so dear so deep ¿ The silences of it are still in my memory! I got a lower berth on the 1215 and went to bed and stayed there till 7 this morning I slept fitfully ¿ had breakfast at the Pennsylvania Station and got here long before Norah arrived. I have been working on and off at the etching scraping out a large place ¿ it is arduous the cutting of the copper ¿ So I am not sending you a proof till the thing is corrected ¿ and Jules just came with another photograph of your drawing ¿ but it is worse than the other so tomorrow he will do it again. ¿¿ [October 1, 1923] New York, to Flora Temple Lash, Philadelphia ¿Dear Love! I have thought of you all through this day ¿ Now it is night ¿ and I long for you so I might kiss your dear eyes and just hear your lovely voice say ¿Albert¿ No one says it like you do, no one! Even over the phone when you are many miles away it bears me to your love ¿ and I love it. I had dinner alone at the Arts Club, for the Players Kitchen is out of commission and we go next door and eat among the old ladies ¿ they are all old ladies there men and women ¿ This morning I printed a beautiful proof from my plate ¿the mask¿ or ¿Now Unmask¿ which title do you prefer. It is really a beautiful proof. I am more & more mad about etching and I find out more wonderful things about it every hour. It is much more precious than lithography and much more difficult and longer to make and so one loves it more. It is more uncertain too and has more mystery. I want you to see this proof, so if you don¿t come to New York at the end of the week I will bring it to show you and will try to print from your plate reading too. ¿ A mad idea has been in my head of renting my studio and going to stay in Vermont ¿ so I would not have to earn so much money and could go on etching ¿ but it is only an idea and may never materialize. ¿¿ [Jan 7 1924] New York to Flora Temple Lash, Philadelphia ¿Dearest Love! ¿ All this week every evening till Saturday I have to play the little Pirandello Play ¿ and on Monday the 14 ¿ I begin the portrait of Mr. Tyler at Elkins Park. I shall go to Philad. Sunday the other two drawings they ordered are to be done later. Tyler wrote that they loved the boy¿s portrait. On the 17th I lecture at the Fellowship. Did you get the photographs & get them to Mary Butler? And on the 19th I give my lecture on drawing here at the Anderson ¿¿ June 27, 1924, Binghamton, New York to Flora T. Lash, Philadelphia ¿My Beloved ¿ First how are you? You dear ¿ I hope quite better and feeling allright. I never like to see you suffering. It

        SIDDHARTHA. EINE INDISCHE DICHTUNG

      Berlin: S. Fischer, 1922. First Edition. Wraps. A Fine, bright copy beautifully bound. Thin octavo (5-3/4" x 8-3/4") bound in recent full rust morocco with gilt lettering on the front cover and on the spine label, retaining the publisher's heavy tan wraps with brown lettering on the front cover and blank on the rear; [1-8], 9-146, [-147], [1, blank], [2, publisher's ads]. The true First Edition with the text in German of one of this Nobel Prize winner's two famous and important novels, the other being of course STEPPENWOLF. Hesse based this book on the early life of Gautama Buddha. The story of a son rebelling against his father's teaching and traditions and eventually finding true enlightenment resonated with those maturing in the 1960s and 1970s making this title something of a cult classic. It was made into a beautiful film in 1972 by Conrad Rooks.

        Winter Village of the Minatarres

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. Aquatint engraving by L. Weber after Bodmer. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A highly atmospheric scene executed by Bodmer during the winter of 1833-1834 when the travellers stayed at Fort Clark on the banks of the upper reaches of Missouri River. In November 1833 Prince Maximilian and Bodmer made a nine-hour trek from the Fort to one of the Hidatsa winter villages (probably Eláh-sa) and stayed for a couple of days. Composed of about eighty households closely packed amidst the sheltering timber the village was the largest of the Hidatsa settlements on the Knife River. Here a number of figures are gathered in the foreground, wrapped in their buffalo robes to watch a pair of young men keep warm by playing the hoop and pole game that was one of the most common and widespread of all North American Indian games. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18.

        A skin lodge of an Assiniboin chief

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Salathé and Hurlimann after Bodmer, issue with no imprint line. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A fine image containing all the essentials a Plains Indian needed or wanted to sustain life. On June 10th 1833, a camp of about twenty five tipis was set up by a band of Assiniboin near Fort Union, at the junction of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers. The tipi in the foreground is painted with bear figures: the owner of this tipi was assumed to have strong supernatural powers (an essential for success in battle, or for aid in treating the sick). In front of the tipi the chief's wife loads a travois harnessed to a dog: these elegantly simple constructions consisted of a netted circular platform attached to long poles and were used to transport baggage. A group of three unused travois stand propped to the left of the woman. The chief relaxes against a rolled blanket in the lee of the tipi, shaded from the afternoon sun, bow in hand, watching his wife work. To his left his small son wrestles playfully with one of the other dogs which follow the band. A warrior returns on horse back with news of game or buffalo. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833.

        New-Harmony on the Wabash

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. Engraving by Lucas Weber after Bodmer. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) This is one of the greatest landscape images to result from the Bodmer and Prince Maximilian's expedition to America's "Interior Parts." A tranquil view of New Harmony, an important stopping point for the travelers before leaving for the west. On the morning of October 19, 1832, Prince Maximilian hired a wagon in Mount Vernon, Indiana, and set out for New Harmony, located some fifteen miles to the north. He had planned at the outset of his journey to stop at the utopian community to visit the distinguished entomologist Thomas Say, from whom Maximilian hoped to get advice concerning travel in the west. David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion) accompanied the Prince while Bodmer and a recent acquaintance started out on foot. During the weeks that followed, Bodmer made numerous excursions around New Harmony and completed a number of views of the community. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. Their travels in North America lasted from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the countries leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833, the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18.
