        Five autograph letters to John Wilson Croker

      1817 - Correspondence with John Wilson Croker over the sudden death of his brother: five autograph letters signed ("Donoughmore"): 11pp. 8vo &c, Knocklofty, 15 August 1817 & undated. "From a sick bed, tho' in a state of progressive amendment for the last two days, it becomes my painful duty to communicate to you the accompanying detail [a medical report, not present] of the event of this day: which has, in a moment, & from apparent perfect health, deprived you of a Brother, & myself of an esteemed friend . . ." Walter Croker (1767-1817), Barrack-Master of Clonmel, Co. Tipperary, was the elder half-brother of John Wilson Croker (1780-1857). The Times reported his death on 29 August: "Walter Croker, Esq. of Corrabella, county Tipperary, brother of John Wilson Croker, Esq. Secretary to the Admiralty. He was seized with an apoplectic fit, at his country seat, as he was preparing to get on horseback, on Thursday last, at two o'clock in the afternoon, and continued in the fit until four o’clock the following morning, when he breathed his last. Mr. Croker had returned to Ireland only the preceding Saturday from London, where he had been some weeks on a visit to his brother." Lord Donoughmore is solicitous, efficient, circumspect. "Care was at once taken," he continues, "by a communication with the General of the District, to protect the public stores, for which poor Croker was responsible, against peculation, by any of his own inferior officers or agents. Being entirely unacquainted with the State of his personal affairs, I am enabled to form no estimate whatever, of the situations in which he may have left his Widow [née Margaret Nagle, married 1792] & his three children, respecting pecuniary matters. Nor Can I be aware, how far you might conceive it proper to suggest the son [John], as a fit person to be recommended, under all the circumstances of the case, to succeed to the Father's office, of one of the Barrackmasters of this County . . ." Nevertheless, he has taken it upon himself to "secure an opening" for such an application and is forwarding at the same time a copy of his letter to Mr Peel (the future prime minister; since 1812 Chief Secretary for Ireland). Richard Hely-Hutchinson (1756-1825, succeeded 1788 as second Baron Donoughmore, created 1797 Viscount Donoughmore, 1800 Earl of Donoughmore, 1821 Viscount Hutchinson), sometime joint Postmaster-General in Ireland and a generous spokesman for Irish Catholics, was appointed in Walter Croker's will joint trustee and guardian - with his brother - of the three children. Their correspondence on the topic is preserved at the William L. Clements Library, Ann Arbor. Donoughmore's four other letters, all equally civil, relate to John Wilson Croker's immediate visit to Ireland, who he might like or need to or will see, &c. Rather than stay at Corrabella, why not make Knocklofty his "dining & sleeping place"? This would be "very satisfactory" to the Earl and his brother Lord Hutchinson (John, 1757-1832; created 1801 Baron Hutchinson).

        Curiosities of Literature

      London - John Murray, 1817. London - John Murray, 1817 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of this collection of essays on literature by Isaac Disraeli. Sixth edition. Isaac D'Israeli was the father of Victorian Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli. In 1791 D'Israeli inherited the whole fortune of his maternal grandmother Esther Syprut, and so became financially independent. He took rooms in James Street, Adelphi, then a haunt of literary men, and began to frequent the British Museum, where he met Francis Douce and other scholars. In the same year he published anonymously the first volume of Curiosities of literature, consisting of anecdotes, characters, sketches, and observations, literary, critical, and historical. This compilation followed the fashion for biographical anecdotes, and was an immediate success. A second volume, with the author's name on the title-page, was added in 1793; a third in 1817; and a Second Series, in three more volumes, in 1823. The work was often revised (13th edn, 1843) and gradually became more like a collection of essays. (DNB)With folding facsimiles to volume II. Complete in three volumes. Condition: Amateurly rebound in half-calf. Externally, generally smart, though with some marks and slight rubbing. One hinge slightly strained. Internally, firmlybound. Pages have some scattered foxing throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        The First Part of the Institute of the Laws of England or a Commentary upon LITTLETON : not the Name of the Author only, but of the Law itself. Notes on Lord Coke's First Institute, or Commentary upon LITTLETON. By Francisa HARGRAVE and Charles BUTLER.

      London, Printed for W. Clarke & sons; C. Hunter; and S. Brooke, 1817.. The seventeenth editon, in two volumes; with addional Notes, by Charles BUTLER. Oktav. (1:) CCXIX S., gefaltetes Kupfer: Gradus Parentelae & Consanguinitatis, 309 ungezählte Blätter; (2:) 384 gez. Bll. 2 spätere Halblederbände mit Leinenüberzug auf den Buchdeckeln.. Den Anspruch von Vollkommenheit kennt man gewöhnlich aus der Musik, so bei wenigen Werken, bei denen jede Note zu stimmen scheinen, gelegentlich wird auch in er Literatur behauptet, ein vollkommenes Werk gelesen zu haben. Unter den Juristen finden wir keine Ansprüche dieser Tragweite, vielleicht bis auf das berühmte Werk von Thomas Littleton (gest. 1481), der vermutlich für seinen Sohn dieses juristische Einführungswerk verfasste. Zumindest in England wird nicht ohne Stolz vermerkt, "it is a work of as absolute perfection in its kind, and as free from error, as any book that I have known to be written of any human learning".(Marvin 469) Der hier vorgenommene Kommentar avancierte als "Coke on Littleton" zu einem der berühmtesten Werke in der englischen Rechtsliteratur. Es ist das Hauptwerk von Coke und stellt eine Enzyklopädie des Rechts (of Common Law) dar. Die 13. Auflage aus dem Jahre 1788 erfärht durch den grossen Notenapparat von Hargrave und Butler eine Bereicherung. Sir Edward COKE (1552-1634) called to the Bar in 1578, he soon built up a large practice. By the favour of Burghley he rose rapidly in public office, becoming Recorder of London in 1591, Solicitor-General in 1592, Speaker of the House of Commons in 1592, and Attorney-General in 1594, which office he held till 1606. As such he championed the crown and its prerogative powers. He had a conduct of many of the great trials of the time, prosecuting Essex and Southampton (1600-01), Raleigh (1603) and the Gunpowder Plot conspirators (1605). As a prosecutor he was frequently savage and tyrannical. He had a lasting hatred of Catholics and prosecuted them with vehemence. In 1606 he became Chief Justice of the Common PLeas and came into conflict with the king over his views on the extent of jurisdiction of the common law courts, first quarrelling with the ecclesiastical courts and asserting the power of the common law courts to determine limits of ecclesiastical jurisdiction. In 1610 Coke gave an opinion that a royal proclamation cannot change the law, and in 1611 came in conflict with the Court of High Commission and had to evade being put on the Commission himself. He had now became the embodiment of the common law and an opponent of royal power. In 1613 he was transferred to the Chief Justiceship of the King's Bench in the hope he would protect the rights of the Crown, and made a member of the Privy Council, but trouble continued. He maintained that, if the judges were consulted on a pending case, they should be consulted in a body. Than he quarrelled with Lord Ellesmere as to the jurisdiction of the court of chancery, a dispute finally settled by James I in favour of the chancery, and finally he quarrelled over the King's right to stop or delay proceedings in the common law courts. In a case of 1616 the court refused to delay hearing a case and in a letter to the King Coke evidenced an inclination to deny the King's prerogative to cntrol the conduct of pending cases where royal interests were involved. Coke was summoned before the Council and dismissed (1616). The King, James I, was unable to trust Coke in office against because of fundamental differences between them in political views but by 1617 he was back in the Privy Council. In 1620 Coke appeared as leader of the Parliamentary oopisition, completely changed front, and forged the alliance between Parliament and the common law against the royal prerogative. He quickly assumed the lead in all the developing resistance to the King and his policy. In 1623 he was removed from the Council and for a time was a prisoner in the Tower, but was shortly restored to favour. In the Parliament of 1628 he took the lead in framing the Petition of Right, but thereafter took no part in public affairs. While a law officer he began to accumulate the materials for his published works. He was a master of mediaeval law and the old books and records, though on non-legal literature he was uncritical and fathered many inaccuracies. Above all, in his INstitutes he wrote the first textbook on the modern common law. Of the four books, the first known as Coke on Littleton contains Littleton's Tenures with an elaborate commentary (1628), the second a commentary on Magna Charta and other mediaeval statutes and certain later statutes (1641), the third deals with the criminal alw (1641) and the fourth gives an account of the various courts which had jurisdiction in England (1641). The first (book) is the most elaborate ans is the fruit of a lifetime's study, and utilizes all Coke's learning and experience. It is virtually a legal encyclopaedia, the entries hung on pegs suggested by the sentences and words of Littleton. His invluence has been enormous in fixing the form and development of modern English law; the work has always been recognized as of the highest authority. In doubtless tended to preserve ancient forms in the law, but largely underlies the constitutional idea of rule of law. He was more learned and practical than the philosophic Bacon, and his word has had far greater influence in law.

Huntress, Shipwrecks and Disasters at Sea, 187C. 8vo, contemporary tree calf, red leather label, gilt rules and lettering. Colored frontis and one plate. A harrowing narrative written by two of the passengers on the French frigate La Méduse, which was sailing from Rochefort to Senegal when it ran aground on the Arguin Bank off the northwest coast of Africa on July 2, 1816. The incompetent and panic-stricken officers of the ship obliged more than 150 passengers and crew to board a small, half-submerged raft, which was promptly cut loose and abandoned. Two weeks later a mere dozen survivors were rescued. The horrible incident is now best known as the subject of a dramatic painting by Théodore Géricault. Savigny and Corréard recount their own grisly experiences and those of other survivors; and they even include straightforward descriptions of the islands and countries they visited before and after the disaster.

"Written like all his novels in the first person the book attempts to show how obsession leads to madness. Godwin sought to trace the breakdown of personality from within ... [Mandeville] is an openly avowed exploration of the subconscious mind which gradually overrides and destroys conscious rationality ... Mandeville ... is an essay in one of the great themes of romanticism" (St. Clair, THE GODWINS AND THE SHELLEYS, p. 440)

Erste Ausgabe eines der bedeutendsten Werke seiner Zeit über die Ausbildung von Blinden, verfaßt vom Direktor der 1785 gegründeten ersten Blindenanstalt der Welt, dem "Institut Royale des Jeunes Aveugles", Sebastian Guillie (1780-1865). "A native of Bordeaux, Guillie received his degree from the University of Paris in 1807. As a physician at Montovilet Hospital, he embarked on a study of the blind and thereafter devoted his life to this cause. He instituted the first French clinic for the blind 1818 and helped form a large ophthalmological library in Paris. The present work outlines his methods for instructions of the blind. Various engravings are used to portray the crafts and occupations he thought suitable for his students. The book itself is the work of blind craftsmen." (Heirs of Hippocrates 1361). Die Tafeln zeigen traditionelle handwerkliche Blindenberufe und die von Guillie vorgeschlagenen Möglichkeiten, sie zu erlernen. "The author chronicles the philanthropic deeds directed toward the blind up to that time and describes the first attempts at special graphic methods for the use of the blind. Of particular interest is the account of his methods of instructing the blind in various crafts. Guillie endeavored to understand and encourage the communication which he observed between blind and deaf-mute children at the time when the two institutions were united" (Slg.

A very good copy indeed, expertly rebacked preserving most of the original spines. Bound without half titles. Internally fine condition, crisp and clean with none of the usual foxing. A most handsome set. Sixty-six steel engraved plates (one folding) including ten aquatints by William Daniell. Nine further steel engraved views and numerous tables in the text. Large fold out map to rear of volume one. One of only 900 copies of the first edition which was the first and remains to this day, the most significant work on Java. Raffles&#39; longest lasting achievement was the founding of modern Singapore, but he was also heavily involved in the conquest of the Indonesian island of Java from the Dutch and French in 1811. He lived on the island as Governor for several years making a detailed study of its history and culture. On his return to England in 1816 he wrote and published his History of Java, describing the island from ancient times to the present. The book covers a wide range of subjects including anthropology, natural history, and language. A notable facet of the book is the ten fine coloured aquatints by William Daniell which depict Javanese scenes and costume in great detail. Other plates illustrate cultural, religious and daily life in Java, the majority in the medium of soft-ground etching with aquatint.
