        Cave-In-Rock. View on the Ohio

      Schmidt and Guenther, [Leipzig 1922 - Hand-coloured 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) En route to St.Louis, Missouri, Bodmer, Prince Maximilian and Dreidoppel traveled via the Ohio river. About twenty-five miles beyond Shawnee Town, Bodmer sketched this intriguing geological rock formation known as Cave-In-Rock on the Illinois side of the river near Cave-In-Rock Island. The scene also includes an Ohio steamer flanked by two Ohio keelboats, all caught against a late evening sky. Unsurprisingly, the area is now part of a National Park. 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.

        East of the Sun and West of the Moon

Illustrated title page, tipped-in colour frontispiece, 24 colour plates, black and white illustrations to text. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Slight rubbing to extremities, slight foxing to top edge; an excellent copy in the jacket with spine lightly browned and a little scuffed, nicks to extremities. First US edition in this format, first printing; Doran had also published a large format edition in 1914.

First published serially in "The Pioneer" magazine in 1854-55, these celebrated letters offer an insightful and vivid account of everyday life in a California mining town. Having sailed around Cape Horn to San Francisco, Clappe (1819-1906) joined her husband at Rich Bar in September 1851, and wrote a series of 23 letters between 1851 and 1852 to her sister back home in Massachusetts. Although not originally intended for publication, the letters are a carefully composed commentary upon a masculine society in which "Dame Shirley" wittily and sometimes sentimentally displays her realistic observations of a coarse and barbarous way of life. Clappe later worked as a school teacher in San Francisco, before returning to the East in 1878. From the library of California tobacco magnate Alfred I. Esberg, with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Also, laid in is a holographic letter from the publisher to Esberg, in which Russell describes in detail the variants the comprised this edition and their respective costs. Octavo.

His poems "Break of Day in the Trenches", "Louse Hunting" and "Dead Man's Dump", which are collected here, are classics of the literature of war.
