        Funeral Scaffold of a Sioux Chief near Fort Pierre [Tab. 11]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Hürlimann after Bodmer. 13 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches. 18 5/8 x 24 3/16 inches. 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 image of powerful spirituality: the living continue their lives whilst acknowledging both the mortality of their relatives and by extension themselves. This fine plate is from a sketch by Bodmer made on 28 April 1834 during the journey back down the Missouri River. The scene is near Fort Pierre; the scaffold in the right foreground holds the remains of a warrior who had apparently been brought home from a great distance. Scaffold burial, on an erected platform or in the limbs of a tree, was a wide spread practice amongst the plains peoples in general and the Sioux in particular, for whom the ritual held deep spiritual significance. 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.

"The madness seized me when staying in La Grave, at the foot of the Meije, that most splendid peak in the Dauphiny Alps. The hotel dog was mostly to blame. Chiefly mastiff with a dash of foxhound, we called him Pas Demi. He made no demur and always answered. He was beautiful and had a partiality for taking lonely ladies out for walks; he was a very perfect knight, bristling and barking at any man who came too near. Indeed, if one were seated when a member of that suspected sex came by, it was well to rise and avert bloodshed." [Attributes: First Edition]

      First Edition Softcover First Edition. #105. 1 of only 150 copies on Verge d'Arches paper; in a slightly larger format than the other versions of the First Edition. In the original blue-green wraps, lacking the backstrip. Otherwise complete. Arguably the most influential work of the 20th century, this copy has an interesting history. According to details in Sylvia Beach's notebook, it was originally purchased by John Quinn in 1922. Quinn, the New York attorney and patron of the arts and literature, was a financial supporter of Joyce. In addition to his purchase of First Edition copies of Ulysses, he owned many other Joyce works, and also purchased the original manuscript of "Ulysses" from Joyce. He amassed a historicallysignificant collection of books by many of the most important writers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His library boasted modern first editions and original manuscripts, including those of Joseph Conrad, Ezra Pound, and W. B. Yeats. In addition, he provided legal assistance to the publishers of "The Little Review" for the troubles occasioned bytheir early publication of portions of "Ulysses". An unrestored copy. The missing backstrip has allowed some of the stitching to come undone. The covers are detached but present, and have some edgewear. Housed in an attractive, appropriately decorated clam-shellcase.

An excellent set, internally clean and bright. First American edition, from English sheets, simultaneous issue, in Cherry-Garrard's preferred "Polar" binding of cloth-backed boards. "Cherry-Garrard seems an unlikely hero of Antarctic exploration, but he has achieved that status largely through this book … a young but wealthy patrician, near-sighted and frail, he paid his way onto the crew as an assistant zoologist, but performed splendidly in many harrowing situations" (Books on Ice). The "worst journey" referred to in the title is not "Scott's ill-fated rendezvous with death," but the earlier Ross Island Winter Journey, from Cape Evans to the penguin colony at Cape Crozier, with Edward Wilson and Henry "Birdie" Bowers. Both of his companions on this trip were to die on the Southern Journey with Scott, Cherry-Garrard being with the last group sent back before the final assault on the South Pole, he was also sent to rendezvous with the returning party of Scott and his four companions, and was the discoverer of the tent and their frozen bodies. "Widely regarded as the masterpiece of polar exploration.

      2 pp., (mm. 134x215), datata (dal timbro postale) Gunsbach 4.5.1922, diretta a "Monsieur M.G.W. Sharo" ad Huddersfield, di 17 righe; in busta con indirizzo. (1922). Bella lettera. Ha ricevuto dal corrispondente una missiva piena di humour e ne è lieto. "Votre bonne hemeur m'a fait du bien dans ma fatigue..". Ed anche Schweitzer vuol far sfoggio del suo spirito "En vous écrivant j'emploierai toujours autant que possible des verbes irréguliers, pourque vous me compreniez plus facilement. Moi aussi j'aime beaucoup l'humour, car en Afrique que deviendrais-je sans cela.. Mais quand je serai obligé, seul en Afrique, d'etre en meme temps médecin et constructeur de mon Hopital, que les termites ont mangé, alors peut etre quelque fois mon humour faiblera. Je compte alors sur vous..". Ben conservata.
