About this Item: published by the author, [Philadelphia, 1835. Lithograph, coloured by hand, printed by Lehman & Duval of Philadelphia. A striking image from Lewis's "Aboriginal Portfolio." The Aboriginal Portfolio represents the first attempt to publish a collection of portraits of North American Indians preceding the works of Catlin, and McKenney and Hall. It is also one of the earliest large projects in American lithography, and one of the first large visual works to deal with subjects beyond the east coast of the United States. The Aboriginal Portfolio was originally published in Philadelphia, for the author, by lithographers George Lehman and Peter S. Duval. It was issued in parts, ten parts of eight plates each being issued; however, due to a loss of subscribers, very few of the last few parts were issued. James O. Lewis was born in Philadelphia in 1799, moved west as a teenager, and had become an engraver and painter by the time he lived in St. Louis in 1820. In 1823 he moved to Detroit, and painted the first of his Indian portraits at the request of Gov. Lewis Cass of Michigan. He accompanied Cass on four Indian treaty expeditions in the Great Lakes region in 1825-27 and painted Indians in the course of each.Virtually all of Lewis's portraits were done at these meetings. Subsequently, many of the Lewis originals were copied by Charles Bird King, and some appeared in the King versions in the McKenney and Hall portfolio. All of the Lewis originals were destroyed in the Smithsonian fire of 1865. The treaty Lewis refers to as the Treaty of Green Bay was the Treaty of Butte des Morts, 1827. On this treaty is the mark of "Shoank-tshunksiap" Black Wolf, a Menominie, presumably the man here portrayed as a Winnebago. Cf. Bennett, p.68; cf. Eberstadt 131:418; cf. Field 936; cf.

About this Item: published by the author, [Philadelphia, 1835. Lithograph, coloured by hand, printed by Lehman & Duval of Philadelphia. A striking image from Lewis's "Aboriginal Portfolio." Waa-Pa-Shaw, better known as Wabasha, was chief of a Kiowa tribe of the Mdewakanton Sioux. He was treated with great respect by all the Sioux. He recommended non-resistance to the whites, though he and his people were removed twice to new settlements. He was described by General Whiting in 1820 as a small man with an eyepatch, "but who walked about with the air of an ancient king." (Horan). He was the first Native signer of the Prairie de Chien Treaty, indicating his importance among the assembled chiefs. The Aboriginal Portfolio represents the first attempt to publish a collection of portraits of North American Indians preceding the works of Catlin, and McKenney and Hall. It is also one of the earliest large projects in American lithography, and one of the first large visual works to deal with subjects beyond the east coast of the United States.

About this Item: published by the author, [Philadelphia, 1835. Lithograph, coloured by hand, printed by Lehman & Duval of Philadelphia. A striking image from Lewis's "Aboriginal Portfolio." KeeMeOne (or KeeMeeWun) is listed as a signer of the Fond du Lac treaty of 1826 between the United States and the Chippewa, which re-confirmed the Prairie du Chien treaty ceding rights to mineral expliration and mining in Chippewa land. This treaty was also signed by Lewis Cass, Thomas McKenney, James Otto Lewis and Henry Schoolcraft. The Aboriginal Portfolio represents the first attempt to publish a collection of portraits of North American Indians preceding the works of Catlin, and McKenney and Hall. It is also one of the earliest large projects in American lithography, and one of the first large visual works to deal with subjects beyond the east coast of the United States. The Aboriginal Portfolio was originally published in Philadelphia, for the author, by lithographers George Lehman and Peter S. Duval. It was issued in parts, ten parts of eight plates each being issued; however, due to a loss of subscribers, very few of the last few parts were issued. James O. Lewis was born in Philadelphia in 1799, moved west as a teenager, and had become an engraver and painter by the time he lived in St. Louis in 1820. In 1823 he moved to Detroit, and painted the first of his Indian portraits at the request of Gov. Lewis Cass of Michigan. He accompanied Cass on four Indian treaty expeditions in the Great Lakes region in 1825-27 and painted Indians in the course of each. Virtually all of the originals published here were executed by Lewis in this period. Subsequently, many of the Lewis originals were copied by Charles Bird King, and some appeared in the King versions in the McKenney and Hall portfolio. All of the Lewis originals were destroyed in the Smithsonian fire of 1865. Cf. Bennett, p.68; cf. Eberstadt 131:418; cf. Field 936; cf. Sabin 40812; cf. Howes J135; cf.

About this Item: [Philadelphia, 1836. Folio. 18 1/4 x 11 inches). Blue upper wrapper to original part number 8 bound as title, 72 hand-coloured lithographed plates after Lewis by Lehman & Duval, bound without the three letterpress broadside prospectus Advertisement leaves to parts 1-3. (Occasional expert repairs.). Bound to style in dark green quarter morocco over contemporary patterned cloth-covered boards First edition. Scarcer than McKenney and Hall's 'History of the Indian Tribes', Prince Maximilian's 'Reise in das Innere von Nord-America' or Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', Lewis' work records the dress of the Potawatomi, Winnebago, Shawnee, Sioux, Miami, Fox, Iowa and other tribes at treaties of Prairie du Chien, Fort Wayne, Fond du Lac and Green Bay. Publication of the work was costly and time consuming. The work was originally issued in 10 parts with 8 plates per number in printed wrappers. The publisher was forced into bankruptcy while part nine was in the press, however, reducing the edition and forcing part ten to be just barely finished and sparsely distributed. A projected eleventh part would have contained "Historical and Biographical Description of the Indians," but was never completed. The title and three advertisement leaves are therefore the only text in the work, excluding that on the wrappers. Copies are found with 72 plates (as here, being the first 9 numbers), others with 77 and occasionally 80.

About this Item: Philadelphia, 1835-36; New York, 1853 (assembled ca. 1902)., 1835. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 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 inches; 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 38.5 x 28 cm. (15 x 10 7/8 inches). 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."

About this Item: published by J.O. Lewis, Philadelphia, 1836. Folio. (17 5/8 x 11 1/4 inches). 3 letterpress advertisement leaves. 72 hand-coloured lithographic plates. Extra-illustrated with an original parts wrapper from part number 3. Contemporary calf "bound by R. Allen. Late S. Bennett . Mercury Office, Nottingham" (see label on front pastedown), covers panelled in gilt to a neo-classical design, titled in gilt on upper cover "Aboriginal / Port-Folio.", expertly rebacked to style, spine in eight compartments with raised bands, the bands tooled in gilt and flanked by tools in gilt and blind, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, marbled endpapers One of the rarest 19th-century American colour-plate books and the first major American colour-plate book on American Indians. Scarcer than McKenney and Hall's 'History of the Indian Tribes', Prince Maximilian's 'Reise in das Innere von Nord-America' or Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', Lewis' work records the dress of the Potawatomi, Winnebago, Shawnee, Sioux, Miami, Fox, Iowa and other tribes at treaties of Prairie du Chien, Fort Wayne, Fond du Lac and Green Bay. The Aboriginal Port Folio was published in Philadelphia by lithographers George Lehman and Peter S. Duval. It was issued in ten parts, with each part containing eight plates. Given the size of the undertaking the first nine parts were issued remarkably quickly, and appeared monthly between May 1835 and January 1836. The reason for this haste is probably that Lewis was aware that the imminent appearance of the first part of McKenney and Hall's History of the Indian Tribes of North America would adversely affect his subscriber-numbers. The evidence of the surviving copies suggests that his fears were well-founded as there are a number of sets made up from eight parts (with 64 plates), but very few with nine parts (72 plates) and ten-part sets with the full complement of a frontispiece/title-leaf and eighty plates are virtually never found: only the Siebert copy is listed as having sold at auction in the past twenty-five years, and there are only about a half dozen or so other recorded sets (the Siebert set, and one other, are the only two examples to include the title page). The binding of the present set can be dated to between 1836 and 1847: in 1836 Samuel Bennett died and Richard Allen took over as proprietor of the Nottingham Mercury. In 1847 the proprietorship passed to Thomas Bailey. James O. Lewis was born in Philadelphia in 1799, moved west as a teenager, and had become an engraver and painter by the time he was living in St. Louis in 1820. In 1823 he moved to Detroit, and painted the first of his Indian portraits at the request of Gov. Lewis Cass of Michigan. He accompanied Cass on four Indian treaty expeditions in the Great Lakes region in 1825-27 and painted Indians during the course of each. Virtually all of the originals of the images published here were executed by Lewis in this period. Subsequently, many of the Lewis portraits were copied by Charles Bird King, and some appeared in the King versions in the McKenney and Hall portfolio. All of the Lewis originals were destroyed in the Smithsonian fire of 1865.
