Description: MCKENNEY, THOMAS L. AND JAMES HALL History of the Indian Tribes of North America, with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs. Philadelphia: Frederick W. Greenough, 1838; Daniel Rice and James G. Clark, 1844. 3 vols. Folio, contemporary 3/4 brown morocco over marbled boards, Louis Philippe I copy with his monogram, featuring the initials "LP" surmounted by a crown, gilt-stamped to spine in four compartments, original buff endpapers. Housed in custom cloth clamshell cases with titles in gilt to leather spine labels. First edition. Complete with 120 hand-colored lithographed plates heightened with gum arabic, and black and white fold-out lithographed map to vol. 3. Originally issued to Louis Philippe I, King of France during the July Monarchy, a tumultuous period during which the bourgeoisie dominated and which marked a shift in the basis of legitimate power from divine right to popular support. Late in his reign the king's popularity began to decline. In 1848, social unrest escalated into revolution, the fall of the monarchy, and the establishment of the Second Republic. Louis Philippe was forced to abdicate the French throne in 1848 and flee to England where he lived the remainder of his life in exile. After his death, his family sold his belongings, including the present copy of this work, at auction in 1852. In 1821, Thomas McKenney, Superintendent of the United States Indian Trade Office (1816-1822), Superintendent of Indian Affairs (1822-1824), and the first director of the Office of Indian Affairs, began to commission artist Charles Bird King to produce portraits of Native Americans who had traveled to Washington, D.C. as delegates to negotiate treaties with the federal government. McKenney then commissioned lithographs of the paintings to be published in three volumes, each portrait to be accompanied by a biography of the subject, written by James Hall, author, judge and Treasurer of Illinois. The publication was never fully completed due to the high cost of the subscription fees. In the winter of 1865, 295 of the original Indian portraits completed for the project, in storage at the Smithsonian Institution, were destroyed in a fire, and only five survived. Due to the work of McKenney, Hall and King, before and after the fire, the current work is considered one of "the grandest color plate books issued in the United States up to the time of its publication... " (Reese). Light wear to boards; gilt-embossed bookplate J.C. Mac Coy tipped to front pastedown, all vols., three plates (Ledagie, Amisquew, and John Ross), with signature marks and residue, vol. 1; plates heavily cleaned; intermittent foxing mainly affecting tissue guards; no repairs to pages and colors bright.

Condition Report: The plates in Volume I are dated 1837-1838 (with the imprint of E. C. Biddle and F.W. Greenough); the plates in Volume II are dated 1837-1838 and 1841-1842 (with the imprint and J.T. Bowen, and James Clark G. Clark and Daniel Rice); and the plates in Volume III are dated 1842 and 1843 (all with the imprint of Daniel Rice and James G. Clark). vol. 1 - all plates Frederick W. Greenough and E.C. Biddle vol. 2 - 7 plates J.T Bowen; 4 plates Daniel Rice and James Clark Vol. 3 - all plates Daniel Rice and James Clark

Thomas Jefferson

Lot 9: Thomas Jefferson

by RR Auction

August 13, 2014, 6:00 PM EST

Amherst, NH, USA

Estimated Price: $6,000 - $7,000

Description: Partly-printed vellum DS as president, signed "Th: Jefferson," one page, 10.5 x 10, January 16, 1809. President Jefferson issues a naval appointment for Henry Pilliam. In part: "That reposing special Trust and Confidence in the Patriotism, Valour, Fidelity, and Abilities of Henry Pilliam, I do appoint him a midshipman in the Navy of the United States." Neatly signed at the conclusion by President Jefferson and countersigned by Secretary of the Navy Robert Smith. The document bears an embossed Navy Department seal to the upper left. Intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through last letter of the signature), overall wrinkling, and light staining, otherwise fine condition. Such appointments by Thomas Jefferson are quite scarce, as he and the Republican party opposed a strong navy, arguing that small gunboats in the major harbors were all that the nation needed to defend itself. However, as Jefferson's term neared its conclusion the naval forces were beginning to grow out of necessity in order to protect the maritime interests of the United States, as merchant vessels were frequently being interfered with during their voyages on the high seas. Ultimately, these disputes would culminate in the War of 1812 during President Madison's administration, in which the US Navy saw substantial action against the British forces. An exceptionally desirable and well-preserved example of a Jefferson appointment.

Albert Einstein

Lot 180: Albert Einstein

by RR Auction

August 13, 2014, 6:00 PM EST

Amherst, NH, USA

Estimated Price: $2,500 - $3,000

Description: TLS in German, signed "A. Einstein," one page, 8.5 x 11, The Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton letterhead, February 11, 1949. Einstein writes to Blanch H. Schlick, widow of Moritz Schlick. In full (translated): "I thank you for sending the most interesting lectures of your esteemed husband, who has made a lasting contribution to the philosophy of science in our time and whose influence continues unabated into the present. I repeatedly and carefully studied this lecture shortly after a severe operation, and had much pleasure in the clarity and sharpness of the arguments and no less in the masterful style. I would think that engaging with his literary estate is a beautiful life-work for you, which compensates you somewhat for the bitter and tragic loss, which you share with philosophically interested contemporaries." In fine to very fine condition, with unobtrusive intersecting folds and a censorship stamp to left blank area.When the up-and-coming German philosopher Moritz Schlick published his Space and Time in Contemporary Physics in 1917-which he described as an 'elucidation of the thesis that space and time have now forfeited all objectivity in physics'-he found an instant fan in Einstein. Touting the work as 'masterly,' Einstein recognized him as one of the first commentators to see that space and time have no existence or reality prior to the metric field, and the two began a correspondence that would last a lifetime. Securing the prestigious position as chair of Naturphilosophie at the University of Vienna in 1922 (with a recommendation from Einstein), Schlick surrounded himself with luminaries in philosophy, physics, and mathematics, heading the legendary Vienna Circle of thinkers, lecturing internationally, and publishing numerous influential essays. When he was assassinated by a former student on the steps of the University in 1936, the shaken intellectual world mourned the loss of one of the greatest minds of their time. Ensuring that her husband's literary legacy would persevere, Blanche Hardy Schlick undertook the organization of his estate, editing and publishing past works, letters, and lectures, and sharing with the figures who helped shape his work. Thanking Schlick's widow for her work and praising her husband's "clarity and sharpness of the arguments" and "masterful style," this is a remarkable letter connecting two legendary minds.

Beatles: John Lennon

Lot 776: Beatles: John Lennon

by RR Auction

August 13, 2014, 6:00 PM EST

Amherst, NH, USA

Estimated Price: $20,000 - $30,000

Description: DS, one page, 16 x 7, June 3, 1965. Official vehicle registration form for Lennon's 1965 Rolls Royce Phantom V limousine, signed on the left side by Lennon in black ink. His personal and vehicular information was filled out in another hand, registering the car to "John Winston Lennon, 'Kenwood,' St. Georges Hill, Weybridge Sy," noting that the car is black and has a petrol-powered 6230 cc engine, and assigning a license plate number of "FJB 111C." The document is permanently affixed to a mat beneath an image of the vehicle to an overall size of 20 x 16. In fine condition, with expected document wear.It was not long before Lennon began to modify the vehicle, beginning with an extensive interior renovation-the rear seat was made to convert into a double bed, and a television, telephone, custom sound system, and refrigerator were all installed. Though the Rolls Royce was delivered in a classic matte black, in 1967 he commissioned an elaborate, colorful paint job for it in the style of a psychedelic gypsy wagon, hiring J. P. Fallon Limited, a coachworks company in Surrey, to complete the work. John's car was used exclusively by the Beatles during their heyday between 1965 and 1969, including for their trip to Buckingham Palace to attend the royal ceremony at which they received the medals making them Members of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. So wild was the paint job that an older woman-proud of her nation's vehicular heritage-attacked the car with her umbrella as it rolled down a London street, exclaiming, 'You swine, how dare you do this to a Rolls Royce!' Later, post-Beatles, Lennon sent the limo to the US, where it was occasionally rented by the likes of the Moody Blues, Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan. A decidedly one-of-a-kind document for this legendary automobile.
