        An Argument for Construing Largely the Right of an Appellee of Murder, to Insist on, Trial by Battle; and for Abolishing Appeals

      London - Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy; Clarke and Sons 1818 - The second edition, revised and enlarged,of this scarce text, by author and political writer, Edward Kendall. This copy is inscribed by the author to an Irish Earl. Very scarce -only seen once at auction in the last thirty years in any of the three editions, all 1818. Rebacked in leather with the original boards, with gilt lettering and decoration to the spine. With a copperplate ink inscription Sent to the Earl ofBlessington by E. A. Kendall, Esq. to the verso of the frontispiece. With an Appendix, containing a report on the debate in the House of Commons, on a clause for abolishing appeals of murder in the British North American colonies. There is a printing error in the pagination of the last three pages. The first is unpaginated,then 204, and 201. Charles John Gardiner, 1st Earl of Blessington, 1782 1829, was an Irish earl. He was elected a representative peer in 1809, created Earl of Blessington in 1816, and inherited the title of Viscount Mountjoy in 1829. Edward Augustus Kendall, d. 1842, was a writer. Little is known about his life. Kendall'sliterary output is varied, and can be divided into four general categories, his serious ideas and proposals for political and social reforms, for example his letters on the state of Ireland; his weekly popular journalism which, ambitiously, might be described as a forerunner of Harmsworth; his translations from the French; and his children's books -ODNB. Condition: The textblock binding is generallytight and firm. The inner hinges are strained, and the first three leaves are only partially attached. There is wear to the extremities, including rubbing and edge wear with slight loss and lifting, and with marks to the boards. Internally the pages have slight browning with occasional spots, prominent to the first and last few pages. There is a copperplate ink inscription dated 1840 to the front free-endpaper. Overall the condition is good only with a very good interior. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Account of the Natives of the Tonga Islands, in the South Pacific Ocean. With an Original Grammar and Vocabulary of their Language. Compiled and arranged from the Extensive Communications of Mr. William Mariner.

      London: John Murray, 1818 - 2 volumes, octavo (210 × 129 mm). Contemporary dark blue diced calf, red morocco lettering- and numbering-pieces, flat bands with gilt sextuple rules and fleuron tools, gilt triple fillet panels enclosing a dotted panel to the compartments, foliate rolled panel to the boards, gilt milling at the board corners, marbled edges, grey endpapers. A little rubbed, some restoration at the head of the spine of volume I, gilt retouched in places, portrait slightly browned and off-setting onto the title page, light browning and scattered foxing else, a very good set. Engraved portrait frontispiece - "Mr. Mariner in the costume of the Tonga Islands" - to volume I, folding engraved map to volume II. Originally published in the previous year, this the "Second Edition, with additions" which include the folding map, a new preface and an enlarged introduction. "Considered the best report of Tongan life and culture before the arrival of Christianity the customs of the inhabitants and their inter-island wars, and also examples of Tongan songs and music" (Hill). Mariner had sailed on the privateer Port-au-Prince in 1805, aged 13. "After an adventurous voyage the ship arrived at the Tonga Islands in poor condition, hoping to carry out repairs. The crew met with a hostile reception and many of them were massacred. Mariner, however, was taken under the protection of the principal chief, Finau Ulukalala, who bestowed on him the name of one of his deceased sons, Toki Ukamea, and appointed one of his wives to be Mariner's adopted mother. Mariner's residence in Tonga lasted for four years. During this time he became thoroughly conversant with the language and customs of this Polynesian people Using the guns from the Port-au-Prince, and helped by his surviving companions, he took a full and often decisive part in his protector's warlike campaigns against other islands. Eventually times became more peaceful and Toki attained the status of a chief, living on his own cultivated plantations" (ODNB). In 1810 Mariner worked his passage back to England, and became a stockbroker, some time later becoming embroiled in a forgery scandal, the exchequer bill affair of 1836–41. He died in 1853. The book was extensively reviewed by Southey in the Quarterly Review (April, 1817), describing it as "one of the most interesting narratives which we have ever perused", and noting telling affinities between the Finau the Tongan tyrant and the recently deposed French emperor, for example in the "utter disregard for human life by which such men as Finow [sic] and Buonaparte are distinguished." Hill p. 378.

      Picadilly London, March 26, 1818 Beautifully written lengthy letter from William Carey.

        On the Fire-Damp of Coal Mines, and on Methods of Lighting the Mines So as to Prevent Its Explosion" (Davy) & "An Account of an Invention for Giving Light in Explosive Mixtures of Fire-Damp in Coal Mines, by Consuming the Fire-Damp"(Davy) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 106, 1816, pp. 1-22, 23-24 WITH An Essay towards the Calculus of Functions Part I and II (Babbage) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 105, 1816, Part I pp. 1-22, 23-24, Part II 179-256 WITH "On the laws which regulate the polarisation of light by reflection from transparent bodies" (Brewster) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 105, 1815, Parts I and II, pp. 125-159

      - FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND DESCRIPTION of an invention some have argued rescued the Industrial Revolution, Humphrey Davy's Safety Lamp (this published prior to Davy's own 1818 book on the subject). "Two great events amazed Britain in 1815: the victory of Wellington over Napoleon and the victory of Davy over mine gases. The Industrial Revolution was in danger of stalling in the early 19th c. due to the dangers in mining with contemporary lamps that used flame and ignited explosions. A disaster near Newcastle in 1812 killed 101 miners, and more than two-thirds of the coal mines in England were considered too dangerous to work because of their levels of coal gas. "In 1815 Davy was invited by the Chairman of a 'Society for Preventing Accidents in Coal Mines' to invent a solution. Davy had earlier studied flames and their propagation and noted that flames could not propagate through small holes. Thus his solution was merely to surround the lamp with a cylinder of wire mesh that still left the flame open to the atmosphere. The mesh conducted away the heat of the flame, thus cooling it so that the temperature methane would encounter at the lamp would be lower than its flash point. The flame itself could not penetrate the mesh.Although the flame and combustible gas were in open contact, there would be no explosion" (Greenberg, A Chemical History Tour, 184-185). Davy published these two papers in Philosophical Transactions in late 1815 and early 1816. In 1818 he was made a Baronet for his service to Britain's industry. ALSO in this volume is Part II of Babbage's seminal 'An Essay towards the Calculus of Functions,' his most important mathematical work. "Babbage believed that his new scheme would serve as a generalized calculus to include all problems capable of analytical formulation and it is possible to see here a hint of the inspiration for his concept of the Analytical Engine. While the work on the engines and his other scientific, social and political activities caused him virtually to abandon mathematical research at the age of thirty, the calculus of functions was the area he often yearned to continue. In fact, the calculus of functions was not taken up by other workers, and it is the aspect of Babbage's mathematical work that modern mathematicians find the most fascinating" (Dubbey, The Mathematical Work of Charles Babbage). ALSO INCLUDED: First editions of Charles Babbage's first papers as well as his most important contribution to mathematics, the calculus of functions. ALSO INCLUDED: First edition of 'Brewster's Angle, "one of Brewster's most important contributions to the science of physics" (Molecular Expressions Website). CONDITION & DETAILS: Philosophical Transactions Volume for the year MDCCCXV (1815) and MDCCCXVI (1816) Ex-libris bearing only a miniscule "Athenaeum Library, Liverpool" stamp and at the foot (margin) of some of the plates.

        Narrative of an expedition to explore the river Zaire, usually called the Congo in South Africa in 1816 under the direction of Captain J. K. Tuckey, R. N. To which is added, the journal of Professor Smith; some general observations on the country and its inhabitants; and an appendix: containing the natural history of that part of the Kingdom of Congo through which the Zaire flows.

      London, John Murray 1818.. 28 x 22 cm. [3] Bl., LXXXII, 402, 401-498 S. Mit zahlreichen Textholzschnitten, einer mehrfach gefalteten Kupferstich-Karte und 13 Kupferstich-Tafeln, davon eine altkoloriert. Modernes Halbleder mit Lederrückenschild und wenig Goldprägung, alt marmorierter Schnitt. Lediglich die Tafeln gebräunt, teilweise mit Bräunung der benachbarten Blätter, sonst sauber und frisch. Toning and foxing to plates as usual, otherwise a fresh copy in modern binding.. Gay 3059. Hess/Coger 4339. Paulitschke, Erforschung, 199. Henze V, 360. Erste Ausgabe. Tuckey erforschte im Auftrag der britischen Admiralität den Flußlauf des Kongo. Die Expedition kam zu einem unglücklichen Ende, denn Tuckey und weitere 23 Mitglieder der Expedition starben innerhalb kurzer Zeit. Der posthume Bericht beruht auf seinen Reisetagebüchern. Tuckeys Angaben über Ausmaße und Lauf des Flusses stießen bei den Zeitgenossen auf Unglauben, spätere Expeditionen blieben erfolglos. Erst mit Stanley fand Tuckeys Bericht seine volle Bestätigung (Paulitschke). Die Karte zeigt Cap Lopez und den Unterlauf des Kongo.

        A New Hieroglyphic Bible, With Above Four Hundred Cuts

      Oliver & Boyd, Edinburgh 1818 - 12mo. 108pp. Publishers original drab brown cloth; upper board blocked in gilt with title within a floral design. Ink name on front pastedown. Cloth soiled, binding lightly shaken, gilt rubbed else a very good copy. The date of publication is taken from the Advertisement, page 4. This seems to be the first Oliver and Boyd printing of a hieroglyphic Bible and the second Edinburgh printing after the Doig and Sterling edition of 1814. The accepted publicaton date for this Bible is 1818; three other known copies are known to have been issued either in quarter leather and marbled paper boards, or in printed card covers. Our copy is in what is clearly publisher's cloth with gilt blocked on the upper board. This combination is unknown before 1826. It is likely, then, that the textblock, while printed earlier, was bound after 1826. Exceedingly scarce. Protected in a custom clamshell box. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Historically Significant and Important Period Manuscript Report of the Naval and Military Actions in Chile and Peru]: Estado que en el dia de la fecha tiene el Vireinato de Lima; Provincias del de Buenos Ayres recuperadas y concervadas por el Ejercito del alto Peru; y finalmente en el que ce halla el Reyno de Chile [The State at this date of the Viceroyalty of Lima, the Provinces of Buenos Aires, taken back by the Army of Alto Peru; and finally the State of the Kingdom of Chile].

      Lima 1818 - Lima, 1 November 1818. Small folio (ca. 31x21 cm). 6 pp. Brown ink on laid paper with watermarks 'A' and 'PLA'. Text in Spanish in legible hand writing. Later marbled paper wrappers. Manuscript in very good condition. Historically significant and important period report of the final stage of the Chilean (1810-1826) and Peruvian (1811-1824) Wars of Independence, compiled by Spanish colonial authorities. Our copy apparently belonged to Joaquín de la Pezuela, 1st Marquis of Viluma (1761-1830) who was a viceroy of Peru during the War of Independence: there is a handwritten remark "Es copia Pezuela" in the end of the text. The document is divided into three parts ("Vireinato de Lima", "Egéreito del Perú", and "Reyno de Chile") and starts with the report of advance of the Royalist forces (3400 men under command of General Mariano de Osorio) from Callao to Talcahuano in order to regain Chile. Then follow the descriptions of Battle of Cancha Rayada (18 March 1818), Battle of Maipú (5 April 1818), San Martín's famous Crossing of the Andes (January-February 1817) et al. A large part of the text is dedicated to the actions of the Royalists' army in Alto Peru under command of José de la Serna e Hinojosa (1770-1832). The author reports on the numbers of armed forces in different provinces of the Vireinato de Lima and gives a picture of the wartime Peru from north to south. Very important is the extensive material on the naval war near the coast of Chile and Peru, and the actions of the First Chilean Navy Squadron which was formed in 1817-1818 and eventually "terminated Spanish colonial rule on the south-west coast of South America" (Wikipedia). The report lists 12 vessels of the Royalists' naval forces (Las fuerzas de mar): frigates Esmeralda, Cleopatra, Presidenta and Venganza, brigantines Pezuela and Potrillo, corvet Sebastiano et al. There are notes on the condition and amount of guns of each vessel. A separate list is dedicated to the enemy vessels and also details their artillery: Lautaro and Cumberland (bought from the British East India Company); corvette Coquimbo (bought from the US), four brigantines, and seven corsairs (Anglo-American and French). The document reports on the blockade of Valparaiso in March-April 1818, and naval actions, e.g. the attack on Spanish corvette Resolution near Callao by the corsair force consisting of the British, American, Portuguese and Irish sailors (19 October). The text is concluding with the news that the naval reinforcement for the Royalists has departed from Spain: frigate Especulation left Cadiz on the 21st of May with 6 officials and 200 men from the Regiment of Cantabria, a part of a larger force which will embark in Callao and will go immediately to reinforce the army of Alto Peru. Frigate Maria Isabel will increase the maritime forces destined to blockade Valparaiso. The author has no doubt that "Our maritime force should succeed in destroying the rebels and will give us advantage in the reconquista de Chile".

        A Catalogue of Manuscripts, Formerly in the Possession of Francis Hargrave, now Deposited in the British Museum

      Printed by G. Woodfall, London 1818 - 4to. [iv], 188 pp. Original drab boards (a little worn, expertly rebacked). Edges uncut and partially unopened. Ex-libris stamps in blind from the (now-defunct) Theological Institute of Connecticut. Some minor spotting, but overall in very good condition, the paper quite crisp First Edition. Highly interesting catalogue of the legal manuscripts collected by Francis Hargrave (1741-1821). In 1813 Hargrave's collection of 499 manuscripts, together with his library of books, was purchased for £8,000 for the British nation by a vote of the House of Commons. The catalogue describes the manuscript portion of the Hargrave collection. Hargrave was the most prominent of the five advocates who appeared on behalf of James Somersett in the case which determined, in 1772, the legal status of slaves in England. This was Hargrave's first trial and secured his reputation as one of most brilliant advocates of his day. Thereafter, he specialised in legal history and commentary, and published many works of legal history. Meanwhile, he quietly amassed a substantial collection of legal books and manuscripts. Our copy contains a 3-page presentation letter from Rev. Josiah Forshall, at that time Keeper of Manuscripts at the British Museum, to the "Lord Bishop of London" (i.e. Charles James Blomfield). On page 3 Forshall inscribes "a list of such books as you are entitled to from this place in virtue of your office." The present volume is included in Forshall's list.
