[n.d., c.1827.]
Rare lithograph with fine hand colour. Sheet 270 x 240mm (10½ x 9½"). Laid on album paper at corners.
A group portrait of four Osage men and two women who visited France in 1827, named as Kihegashugah (the Little Chief), Washingsabba, Marcharthitahtoongah, Minkchatahoon, Myhangah (Mo-hon-go, wife of Kihegashugah, later painted by Charles Bird King for Thomas McKenney's 'History of the Indian Tribes of North Americ'.) and Gretomih. In an expedition arranged by David de Launay. a French-born resident of St. Louis, the group travelled down the Mississppi to New Orleans and crossed to La Havre. In France they were initially a sensation: they were mobbed wherever they went and met Charles X; Kihegashugah even took a ride in a hot air balloon. However interest soon wained and de Launay forced them to put on shows, but after he was jailed for a debt (the reason he went to America) the Osage had their property seized to pay his debts and were left to fend for themselves. At this time, Myhangah gave birth to twin daughters, one of whom she allowed to be adopted into a French family. The Osage split into two groups; the first were helped to return to America by Bishop DuBourg, the second by the Marquis de Lafayette. Two died on voyage, the remaining four reunited in Washington DC, and travelled home.

A Horse Market _ Sonora.
F. Marryat. J. Brandard.
M. & N. Hanhart, imp.t. [n.d., 1855.]
Rare tinted lithograph. Sheet 135 x 200mm (5¼ x 8").
A man sits on the horse he is auctioning, taking bids from a crowd of men from various classes, including Spaniards, Chinese, businessmen, pioneers, and African Americans. Behind is 'The Miner's Saloon'. From Frank Samuel Marryat's ''Mountains and Molehills, or Recollections of a Burnt Journal'', a sportsman-tourist's chronicle of California in the early 1850s, describing hunting, horse races, bear and bull fights. It also includes his bemused comments on social life in San Francisco, Stockton, and the gold fields. Marryat (1826-1855) left England for California via Panama with a manservant and three hunting dogs in 1850, hoping to find material for a book like his earlier Borneo. He returned to England in 1853 to marry; returning to California the same year he contracted yellow fever on board, forcing him to cut short the trip short and return to England, published this book just before he died.

Engraving. Plate: 195 x 220mm (7¾ x 8¾"). Trimmed and laid on album sheet. Some foxing towards the bottom. One vertical fold a quarter of the way from the left as normal.
St. Joseph (founded 1592 by Antonio de Berrio) is the oldest town in Trinidad and Tobago. Originally named San José de Oruña, it served as the capital of Spanish Trinidad between 1592 and 1783. It was set on fire by Sir Walter Raleigh (c.1552 - 1618). Although the hilly and sometimes muddy terrain did not meet the expectations of some of the visiting Governors, San José still remained the capital during Spanish rule until 1784, when Governor Don José Maria Chacon declared Puerto de España (Port-of-Spain), the new capital. For the Universal Magazine.
