About this Item: E.B. and E.C. Kellogg, Hartford, 1845. 111pp., printed in double columns, plus twenty-seven plates and twenty-seven facsimiles, including frontis. Folio. Publishers' half black morocco with brown cloth boards, gilt pictorial front board, blindstamped pictorial rear board, spine gilt, t.e.g., skillfuly rebacked retaining original backstrip, corners renewed with black buckram. Boards shelfworn, occasional foxing throughout, a few tears to tissue guards. Very good overall. First edition of this dramatic work of visual biography. This impressively large scale work is notable for its lithographs of renowned Americans of the 1820s, '30s and '40s, showing the subjects standing in full- length silhouette profile, against a tinted background, resulting in effective and evocative portraits. All the portraits (save for the George Washington frontispiece) are based on sketches made from life by William Henry Brown (1808-82), who was widely celebrated for his scissor portraits. Brown prepared the biographical text himself, and the silhouettes (with appropriate tinted backgrounds) were transferred to stone and printed by one of the best known lithographic firms of the period: the Kelloggs of Hartford, Connecticut. Included (after the necessary eulogistic frontispiece dedicated to Washington) are John Marshall, John Quincy Adams, Richard C. Moore, Andrew Jackson, John Forsyth, William Henry Harrison, John C. Calhoun, De Witt Clinton, Richard M. Johnson, Joel R. Poinsett, Alexander Macomb, Martin Van Buren, Samuel L. Southard, Henry Clay, Henry A. Wise, Thomas Hart Benton, John Tyler, Levi Woodbury, Thomas Cooper, Daniel Webster, William White, Silas Wright, Nathaniel P. Tallmadge, Felix Grundy, Dixon H. Lewis, and John Randolph. Each portrait is accompanied by another plate displaying a facsimile of the subject's handwriting, usually in a piece of correspondence. According to Alice Van Leer Carrick, "Henry Clay wrote to Brown concerning the profile of his old political enemy, John Randolph of Roanoke, 'It is the very perfection of your art'," and that "Daniel Webster said of his silhouette, 'I cannot, however, see its resemblance to the original as I do in all the others.[although] My friends unite in saying that the one you took of myself is a striking likeness'" (quoted in Peters, p.116). HOWES B871, "b." SABIN 8578. PETERS, AMERICA ON STONE, pp.116-17. Seller Inventory # WRCAM55391
