(1805-86) American historian and linguist. Born in Providence, Rhode Island, he was one of the founders of the Providence Athenaeum, and was a member of the American Antiquarian Society. In 1842, he helped Albert Gallatin found the American Ethnology Society. Bartlett is well known in the field of lexicography for his "Dictionary of Americanisms," a pioneering work that is still a valuable tool today. He served as the U.S. Boundary Commissioner from 1850-53, and was responsible for surveying the boundary between the United States and Mexico. He published "A Personal Narrative of Explorations and Incidents in Texas, New Mexico, California, Sonora and Chihuahua" which contains much valuable scientific and historical material. He served as Secretary of Rhode Island from 1855-72. He was the father of John Russell Bartlett, a Rear Admiral in the U.S. Navy, who served in the Civil War and the Spanish American War.

Authentic, original 19th century portrait engraving with printed facsimile signature below his likeness. Engraved by J.C. Buttre from a photo by R.A. Lewis. 6 x 9 1/4. Excellent.
