        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.

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.

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. Becker 169). - Hirsch-Hübotter II, 906/907. Wellcome III, 80. Gutes, nur stellenweise unbedeutend gebräuntes Exemplar. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Sit tilnavn ("Lovforbedreren") fik kong Magnus af sine store fortjenester af landets lovgivning og Gulating, der var det af de fire store middelalderlige norske lagting som omfattede det vestlandske retsomrade. Tingstedet var i Gulen i Ydre Sogn, syd for udmundingen af Sognefjord. Landsloven blev vedtaget i de fire lagdömmer 1274-76. Med norrön og dansk parallelltekst.<br>Ovenstaende er den förste trykte udgave. Selvom loven gjaldt for hele Norge kaldtes den "Leges Gula-thingenses" i titlen, fordi grundlaget for den trykte udgave var Gulating-handskriftet. Landsloven gjaldt hele middelalderen og endnu laengere. Sverige fik först sin landslov i 1350 og Danmark havde ingen gennem hele middelalderen.<br>This law-code of King Magnus lagbaetir (1263-1280) was composed during the years 1271-74, and was accepted by the people of the Frostuthing 1274, Gulathing 1275, Borgarthing and Eidsivathing 1276. Although substantially the same for all the four districts. The law-code excludes the kristinrettr proper, but has a brief kristindomsbalkur concerning the power of the king and the royal succession. This code was essentially in force until the issuing of the Norwegian law-code of Christian V. i 1687. The edition is chiefly the work of G. J. Thorkelin. Text based on AM. 322 fol. (14th century vellum). Hermanson, Islandica, IV, 27. Bibl. Dan. I,681. Fiske I,336. Neither in Bibl. Norv. nor in the Jonas Skougaard library..

        THE HISTORY OF JAVA

      John Murray , 1817. John Murray , 1817. First edition. Two volumes. Contemporary tan calf with finely engraved borders to covers in gilt and blind. Raised bands to spine with gilt titles and embellishments to sections. Marbled edges and endpapers. Each volume with linen marker sash. 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.

A very good original copy with minor wear to spine ends, several short marginal tears (some repaired), some spotting, contemporary ownership marks on endpapers. 16mo. in 8vo. case. Important for its descriptions of Fiji and Hawaii" (Hill, 2nd ed. p. 465). Patterson was marooned in the former in 1808 and visited the latter in 1805 and 1807. Information on his other travels includes the coast of Guinea, Havana, Guadeloupe, California, Australia, Canton, and the northwest coast of America where he visited the Queen Charlotte Island, Vancouver Island, and Alaska. "The author visited the Pacific coast three times, and his work has slight references to California and Nootka," Cowan, p.173. "One of the best of the 'mendicant' books," (Huntress p. 106). Compiled by Ezekiel Taylor, who notes in his preface "His [Patterson's]... nerves are so affected by his sufferings, as that he is incapable of writing himself, and the deficiency of his papers has been filled up by the compiler, under his inspection. Much pains has been taken in preparing this work for public view, to render it truly useful and beneficial to the world." (Howes refers to this Palmer MA issue as the second issue, following a Rhode Island imprint, perhaps based on the copyright information in the volume, but there is no other recording of this issue).
