          Jul. 01, 2023

          Lewis - Pe-A-Jick, A Chippewa Chief

          Est: $400 - $800

          This originally hand-colored lithograph is from rarest collection of Indian plates, James Otto Lewis’s Aboriginal Portfolio. It was the first collection of portraits of North American Indians preceding both Catlin and McKenney & Hall’s works. Lehman & Duval published the Portfolio in Philadelphia between 1835 and 1836. Lewis’s work was also the first large work to deal with a subject beyond the East Coast and also one of the earliest American lithography projects. Lewis painted Indians on his travels with Michigan Governor Lewis Cass. They went on four Indian treaty expeditions in the Great Lakes regions. Unfortunately, like McKenney & Hall's work, Lewis's original paintings were destroyed in the Smithsonian fire of 1865.

        • Lewis, Assembled family copy of The Aboriginal Port-Folio

          Lewis, Assembled family copy of The Aboriginal Port-Folio

          Est: $60,000 - $80,000

          LEWIS, James Otto (1799-1858). Assembled family copy of The Aboriginal Port-Folio. Philadelphia: 1835-1838. Comparables: Sotheby's, 2021 - $119,700; Heritage, 2022 - $100,000. Folio (38.5 x 28 cm.): total of 57 hand-colored lithographed plates mounted on stubs, bound in three-quarters red morocco, the upper cover gilt stamped "Aboriginal Port-Folio/James O. Lewis" (cover sunned, the spine dried and scuffed and with a detached portion present, the hinges strengthened). Contents comprise a manuscript title page in color listing the three 19th century editions of the book (1836/1840/1853); the title page, several text leaves and two hand-colored lithographed plates from the 1853-1856 New York edition published by N. Currier; approximately fifty-five hand-colored lithographed plates from the 1835-36 Philadelphia first edition published by Lehman & Duval; an original oil painting, "Indian Squaw with her Papoose," by G. Albert Lewis (ca. 1844) inlaid at front and measuring 10" x 6 3/4" ; and two manuscript leaves in the hand of G. Albert Lewis, the first a letter dated 1902 explaining the oil painting present here and the second a manuscript biography of James Otto Lewis, each measuring approximately (15" x 10 7/8"). The title, text and first print from the 1853 edition trimmed and inlaid to larger sheets, the second print from this edition laid-in, both are trimmed close to image and somewhat worn; most plates generally clean but with some spotting and occasional marks, a few worn and one with a marginal repair, some trimmed close with loss of imprint, a few strengthened on the verso, some show-through of adhesive from mounting. PROVENANCE: By descent in the family of James Otto Lewis' brother John Frederick Lewis (1791-1858), both the sons of Hessian soldier Johann Andreas Philipp Ludwig who had come to America in 1777. Later in the 19th century the book descended to George Albert Lewis, compiler of the volume, and ultimately from Frederick Lewis Allen to his son Oliver Ellsworth Allen. A LARGE GROUP OF RARE FIRST EDITION PLATES WITHIN A FAMILY COPY OF LEWIS'S SEMINAL ABORIGINAL PORT-FOLIO, THE "FIRST ATTEMPT MADE IN THE UNITED STATES AT A LARGE SCALE WORK DEVOTED TO THE AMERICAN INDIAN" (REESE). Lewis began publishing the work in 1835, promising 10 parts with 8 images each, but the work was not a financial success, and most copies of the work present today do not contain the full complement of plates issued. Present here are about 55 plates from that edition. Lewis's portfolio is the pioneering work of a genre and was in production in the United States before those by of McKenney & Hall and George Catlin. The present copy also contains the title, preface, and the text descriptions that accompanied the six plates issued with the 1853 New York third American edition of the book, a notable rarity in itself as no copy of this edition appears in the auction record (of the 1844 2nd edition only two copies appear in the auction record). Lastly, the original oil painting mounted in the volume, "Indian Squaw and her Papoose," was painted in 1844 by G. Albert Lewis, nephew of James Otto Lewis, and in the letter Lewis reports that this painting was rolled up with the original plates given to him as a youth and was inserted "in this new bound volume, as a relic of childhood's days, and want of thought of the future value of such original pictures of these now fast perishing Indians of our country."
