        Northumberland. A Calendar of the Prisoners, In the Gaol of our Sovereign Lord the King

      Newcastle-on-Tyne, 1819. Broadside measuring 523 x 417 mm., wove paper watermarked 1816, folded, excellent condition. Transported for seven years. A striking visual display of English justice during the transportation era, listing the conviction and punishment of prisoners tried at the Newcastle-upon-Tyne assizes on 14 August 1819.Court calendars such as this fine example were published as public notices detailing the convictions, punishments and sentencing of persons appearing before the assizes. This calendar reports the conviction of eight men tried at the assizes that day, in addition to the punishments allotted to another five. Here we read the fate of one Robert Brown, aged 35 years and convicted of larceny, who is to be 'transported to such Part of his Majesty's Dominions beyond the Seas...for the Term of seven Years.'The crimes of other convicts are described in some detail, and include counterfeiting, assault of a gentleman upon the King's Highway for his silver watch, theft of silver and bank-notes from a Friendly Society and the robbery of textiles and plush velvet cushions from a church. The most prominent list of charges belong to one Ralph Hush, also aged 35 years, who is charged with a string of livestock thefts, including one instance where Hush did 'feloniously take and drive away... thirty Wedder Hogs, ten Ewes, and thirteen Lambs... as well as one Dinmont Sheep and two Lambs' in all exceeding 80 shillings value.

        A Voyage of Discovery, made under the orders of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's Ships Isabella and Alexander, for the purpose of exploring Baffin's Bay and inquiring into the probability of a North-West Passage

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1819. . Very Good. 2nd edition; Printed by Strahan and Spottiswoode For Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, And Brown, 1819. 2 vols. Vol I lxix, 265pp, Vol II (2), 258pp, 2 plates,(1 folding), 1 full page diagram. Second Edition of this famous voyage, which marked the resurgence of British interest in the search for the north-west passage, and inaugurated the great arctic explorations and discoveries of the nineteenth century. Among Ross?'s officers on the voyage were William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross, and Edward Sabine. Setting out in April of 1818, the expedition rediscovered Baffin Bay and its three Sounds, Smith, Jones, and Lancaster, thereby vindicating the reports made by William Baffin in 1616. Sailing some distance into Lancaster Sound, Ross sited a mirage which he believed to be a range of mountains blocking further passage. These he named the Croker Mountains in honour of the first secretary of the Admiralty, J.W.Croker. On his return to England, Ross?'s report was initially accepted as conclusive and he was promoted to Captain, but his contention that Lancaster Sound was landlocked was disputed by other members of the crew, notably by his second-in-command, William Edward Parry. Parry?'s view was supported by Sir John Barrow, second secretary of the Admiralty, with whom Ross was to carry on a life-long quarrel as a result. In 1819, the Admiralty appointed Parry to lead a second expedition, which proved Ross to be mistaken. His reputation seriously discredited, Ross was never again given command of an official government expedition. National Maritime Museum I 818n. Sabin 73376. Smith 8796. TPL 1153. Arctic Bib. 14873.

        The Botanical Magazine; or, Flower-Garden Displayed

      London: for W. Curtis, 1819. 46 volumes bound in 25 plus index for volumes 1-42, octavo. With an engraved portrait in index volume (lightly foxed) and 2104 hand-coloured engraved plates, some folding, some foxing and offsetting but generally plates clean and fresh, contemporary half calf, marbled boards, sometime rebacked, usual wear to corners and edges, a fine set. One of the most important early botanical journals. An excellent unbroken run covering the best years of "The oldest scientific periodical of its kind with coloured illustrations in the world...In the beauty of production and high standard of its contribution it can claim a unique place" (Patrick Synge, Journal of the Royal Horticultural Society (1948, 7e:5-6).Most of the early plates were from drawings by Sydenham Edwards and the colouring by William Graves. Other distinguished artists included James Sowerby, John Curtis, and William Jackson Hooker; and to this day the glory of the magazine has been its beautiful and accurate flower paintings.This set comprises the first and most of the second era of the magazine, relating to the editorships of William Curtis himself (vols. I-XVI) and then his successor Dr. John Sims. The work is unmatched for information on the contemporary gardening scene, because both Curtis and Sims understood the close relationship between gardeners and nurserymen, and wanted to advertise the new plants as they became available. With plants from all over the globe, including hundreds from the Cape (due to the indefatigable Francis Masson), as well as the Americas and south-east Asia, the present set includes over 160 finely illustrated Australian plants, of which the substantial majority date from after the voyage of Matthew Flinders, with all manner of notes derived from Peter Good and Robert Brown.William Curtis (1746-1799) was an important botanist of his day and a member of the Linnean Society. An early interest in entomology saw him publish his early collectors' guide, Instructions for Collecting and Preserving Insects (1771), but he soon turned to botany, cutting his teeth at the Chelsea Physic Garden, and later working at Bermondsey and the London Botanic Garden. John Sims (1749-1831) was a physician and botanist, connected to the large network of Quakers in England. A member of both the Linnean Society and the Royal Society, he was ideally placed to take over the Botanical Magazine after the death of Curtis, until he himself retired in 1826.It would be impossible to list the fantastic array of Australian plants in any detail here, but the first is the Mimosa verticillata (February 1790), collected by David Nelson on Cook's third voyage. A notable inclusion is a pair of fine plates relating to the cultivation of the "magnificent" Gymea Lily, noted as having been first cultivated by the Right Hon. Charles Long of Bromley Hill in Kent.Although the beautifully executed plates, most by renowned artist Sydenham Edwards, are the glory of the work, the notes on contemporary gardens and nurseries provide added interest, revealing a complex network of exotic gardens, with famous names such as Lee and Kennedy of Hammersmith and Loddiges of Hackney, as well as lesser lights such as Whitley, Brame & Milne of Fulham, or Grimwood & Wyke of Kensington. It would be possible to draw a remarkable sketch of this network based on a close reading of the Botanical Magazine alone, a sketch which would help reveal important details of a genteel trade in the process of becoming a serious business.

IV, 438: "Ein Werk, das mit Recht als die Grundlage der experimentellen und medico-legalen Toxikologie bezeichnet werden kann." - Sigismund Friedrich Hermbstädt (1760-1833), der unter Trommsdorff in Erfurt Chemie studierte, und die Zusätze und Anmerkungen zum vorliegenden Werk verfaßte, beeinflußte maßgeblich die Entwicklung der Pharmazie, Chemie und Technologie in Deutschland und machte sich durch die Herausgabe grundlegender ausländischer Werke (Guyton de Morveau, A.

        RICKMAN. An Attempt to Discriminate the Styles of English Architecture. Second Edition [ with] KENDALL. An Elucidation of the Principles of Architecture usually denominated Gothic. First Edition. AN UNUSUAL GOTHIC 'DOUBLE'

      Longman, 1818 (first work); Murray, Nornaville and Fell [and others, 1819] (second work) 1819 2 works in one vol. 8vo., with an engraved frontispiece and 13 engraved plates (first work) and 23 engraved plates (second work), some very light spotting (mainly marginal) on plates; handsomely bound in twentieth century half calf, marbled boards, back ruled, tooled and lettered in gilt, a highly attractive bright, crisp copy, ideal as a gift or for presentation. Since the binding is lettered only for the Rickman it is possible that a previous owner did not realise that TWO important works are present here (the latter, unnamed, work being much the scarcer).Rickman provided the first systematic treatise on Gothic architecture in England. Its influence was profound, for his terminology was employed by virtually all subsequent writers; much of it, indeed, is still current today. First published in 1817 in Liverpool (where the present issue was compiled), one of its most valuable features was its descriptive list of (over 800) extant buildings illustrating the principles of English architecture and helpfully arranged by county. In this updated edition the number of buildings is greatly enlarged. Kendall's VERY SCARCE analysis is based on the ornaments, arches, columns etc., of Exeter Cathedral; the work is intended for practising architects who are taught the main elements which must be followed meticulously to achieve the pure pointed style. Kendall (1766 - 1829) was Surveyor of Exeter Cathedral and responsible for much restoration after about 1805. His important work was reissued once only, by Bohn in 1842. A FINE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE TWO KEY AND BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED GOTHIC TEXTS IN A SINGLE, HANDSOME BINDING.

He commanded the Isabella while William Edward Parry took command of the Alexander. Also included on the voyage were Edward Sabine and Ross's nephew James Clark Ross. The expedition rediscovered Baffins 17th century explorations and found three sounds including Smith, Jones and Lancaster. Unfortuately for Ross, he mistakenly thought the end of Lancaster sound was blocked by a fictitious range of mountains he named the Crocker mountains. After returning to England, many were scepitcal including William Parry about the existance of the mountain range. Parry was chosen to lead another expedition and discovered Lancaster Sound was the gateway to the North West Passage. Ross never lived down this mistake.

        [Manuscript Ledger]: "Waste Book, Downpatrick" (July-December, 1819)

      Downpatrick, [Northern Ireland]. 1819. Manuscript ledgers. Two small folios, spanning the months July--December, 1819. [22]pp., [20]pp. The first with one leaf removed at the rear, the second bumped at the corners, both very good. Hand ruled in ink, with three narrow right hand columns for the listing of monetary sums in pounds, shillings, and pence (L.s.d.). Both ledgers contain detailed business accounts that include inventories of merchandise received and sold (food and wine, leather goods, wool, and other sundries), client debts, cash receipts, bills, and related information. Both also have poems written on the last leaf in a different hand: the first ledger with a long two-page poetic song relating to Ireland's heroic Christian heritage; and the second with two poems on the last page, one of which is a manuscript copy of "The Frozen Brook," published in the November, 1819 issue of the Sporting Magazine, and signed "W.U." The poem warns a young maiden, Rosa, to tread carefully lest she lose her beauty, and by insinuation her virginal purity, through a single misstep. Other poems signed "W.U." were published at this time, but his identity is unknown. An intriguing set of ledgers from Downpatrick. .

        The Chase after a Hog. La Chasse au Sanglier.

      Thomas McLean London 1819 - Aquatint engraving with original hand-colour. Dimensions: 370 by 490mm. (14.50 by 19.25 inches). For Oriental Field Sports, "The most beautiful book on Indian sport in existence" (Schwerdt). Captain Williamson was an extremely talented amateur artist who had built up a fine collection of sketches suitable for turning in to aquatint. He teamed up with Howett - a notable sportsman as well as an industrious engraver of animals to produce this magnificent work, widely considered to contain the finest images of field sports of the Orient. By their very nature aquatint books were always very expensive, but the British public had a great curiosity about India and Williamson's work helped satisfy this desire to know more about the customs of Britain's new addition to the empire.

        ARCHIVE Of LETTERS & DOCUMENTS. Juniata County, Pennsylvania. 1819 - 1854

      1819 - 1854.. Divers dimensions. 89 pieces.. Overall, a VG collection.. 66 handwritten letters and 23 handwritten documents, 6 x 3 in. to 8 x 14 in. (w x h), to and from Adam H. Atkinson of Mexico & Thompsontown, Juniata County, Pennsylvania. The letters and documents are primarily concerned with parcels of land in Pennsylvania, Ohio & Indiana which Atkinson has either recently purchased or was attempting to purchase. Many of the letters were folded to form their own mailer, as was standard practice during this era, and are complete with a postal stamp, often the amount of postage and evidence of a wax seal having been used. Adam H. Atkinson was born in approximately 1818 in Pennsylvania. He was from a well-established family in Thompsontown, Walker Township, Juniata County, Pennsylvania. Adam's grandfather, Matthew Atkinson took out, on order of survey No. 4606, November 24, 1767, two hundred and eighty-six acres of land in what was to become Walker Township, Pennsylvania. On May 1, 1813, Matthew Atkinson also took out a warrant for one hundred acres of land in Wayne Township, where he owned additional land as well. On June 29, 1813, he sold one hundred acres to Adam's father, Lukens Atkinson (born in approximately 1784/5), who moved to Wayne Township, Mifflin County to live and eventually die in what became known as Atkinson's Mills. Adam purchased part of the Abraham Lukens tract on April 1, 1842, and by the time of the 1850 census, we find him listed as a farmer, with the value of his land listed at $7,000.00. In this same census, Lukens Atkinson's land is valued at $12,000.00. As is evidenced by the letters and documents in this collection, Adam H. Atkinson was also a land speculator. In 1860, Adam is listed as owning one male slave, aged 23. Adam assisted several families to relocate from Pennsylvania to Ohio, Illinois and Indiana. Some friends of the family even went as far west as the gold fields of California. The letter of Jonathan Lukens (1851) sings the praises of Illinois and tells Adam he is ?'well pleased with this country?". While most of the correspondence and documents are related to the business of land sales and purchases, rentals and quit claims, there are other documents including bills of sale for Adam and his wife Mary (daughter of Louis Evans and Amelia Groathouse of Delaware Township) in which she has purchased cloth and other household items. Also present are several letters from family members, including his brothers Caleb North Atkinson and J. Atkinson. The six lengthy letters from Lydia E[vans?] Davis of Kirkersville, Ohio, are full of family news and business. From research done, we fully believe that Lydia is a relative of A. H. Atkinson through his wife's family. One very touching letter is that from Adam's son Louis E. Atkinson, aged twelve, written to his mother, Mary, from Airy View Academy in 1853 in which he reports that he is doing well in grammar, arithmetic, geography and other subjects. Louis E. Atkinson (April 16, 1841-February 5, 1910) studied medicine and graduated from the medical department of the College of the City of New York on March 4, 1861. He entered the medical department of the United States Army on September 5, 1861, and served as assistant surgeon in the First Pennsylvania Reserve Cavalry and as surgeon of the One Hundred and Eighty-eight Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry until he mustered out in December 1865. Having been disabled during the war, he did not return to practice medicine but studied law and was admitted to the bar in September 1870. He was elected as a Republican to the House of Representatives in 1883 and served in that capacity until 1893. Taken together, the letters and documents offer the reader fascinating look into life in mid-century Juniata County Pennsylvania, and the movement west of family and friends of Adam H. Atkinson. A detailed inventory of the archive supplied on request.

        Nouveau Système de Minéralogie. Traduit du Suédois.

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1819. 8vo (202 x 127 mm). pp. (4), vi, 314, (1). Recent marbled boards, red gilt lettered label on spine. First published in Swedish in 1814. First French edition, of this famous mineralogical classic. 'In 1812 he received a gift of a large number of minerals which he later decided to classify. The methods of mineral classification existing at the time were based on appearance and physical properties. These seemed highly unsystematic to Berzelius. He concluded from his analytical experience that a logical classification could be based only on chemical composition. In his original system, first published in 1814, he arranged the minerals in terms of their basic constituents, although he later revised this and placed chief emphasis on the acid component. Like many of Berzelius' innovations, his system of mineral classification was at first received with some hostility, but this was gradually overcome. During his visit to Paris in 1818 he won the approval of Haüy, the leading mineralogist of the day, whose own system was based on physical properties' (DSB).//Ward & Carozzi 202; Hoover 123.

Early ownership signature of ""Richard L. Schieffelin, New York, 1819."" Noah (1785-1851) was a lawyer, playwright, and journalist. He was born in Philadelphia of Portuguese-Jewish ancestry. ""In 1813 [he] was appointed consul to Tunis, with a special mission to Algers. He was instructed to negotiate for the release of some Americans held as prisoners by the Algerine pirates. On May 23, 1813, he sailed from Charleston, but his vessel being captured by the British, he was taken to England and detained two months. In October he arrived in Cadiz, where he contracted with Richard R. Keene, an American who had become a Spanish subject, to affect the release of the twelve Americans ... After being detained in France and Spain for more than a year, Noah finally arrived in Tunis. On July 30, 1815, he received a letter from James Monroe, secretary of state, revoking his commission and hinting at irregularities in his accounts. Monroe's treatment of Noah was never satisfactorily explained, though his association with Keene, who had been accused of treason, was doubtless detrimental ... In January 1817, however, Noah received a letter from the Department o State which vindicated his conduct and returned several thousand dollars due him in the enterprise which resulted in the release of the American captives"" (DAB).

A rare and very fragile bill for City of Lincoln, printing the results of the Lent Assizes held on 6 March 1819 before Sir Robert Dallas and Sir James Burrough. Five of the convicts were sentence to transportation, two for the very serious crime of forgery.The bill reports 30 sentences, including the five convicts sentenced to transportation, many of whom for what now seem very modest crimes. Given seven years were: William Houghton, 29, labourer, for stealing a leg of mutton; James Robinson (alias James Platt), 26, for burgling the house of Robert Wright of Nocton; and William Holland, 29, labourer, who killed a ewe and stole the hindquarters, the property of Thomas Doncaster. The full 14 years were given to two forgers, John Lake (29) and Thomas Wade (21). John Lake and Thomas Wade were both certainly sent out on the Malabar in mid-1819.An interesting addition at the foot of the bill relates to the case of William Raines (alias William Clarke, William Rhodes), 24, sentenced to death for 'being at large before the time for which he had been transported.'.

        Kunst und Natur; Blätter aus meinem Reisetagebuch. 3 Bände. Mit 3 gestoch. Titeln und 3 gestoch. Porträts von Klingemann, seiner Frau und P. A. Wolf. Farbige, illustr. Orig.-Broschuren (Kanten berieben, leichte Gebrauchsspuren).

      Braunschweig, Meyer, 1819-1828.. . Erste Ausgabe des komplett seltenen Werks. Klingemann (1777-1831) war erfolgreicher Dramatiker und Theaterdirektor in Braunschweig. Unter seiner Leitung wurde 1829 zum ersten Mal Goethes Faust' öffentlich aufgeführt und sein eigener Faust' machte lange der Goethe'schen Dichtung Konkurrenz. Noch in den 60er Jahren des vorigen Jahrhunderts verkündete der Theaterzettel einer kleinen Schauspielertruppe, das Drama sei "von Goethe nach Klingemann". Die Erinnerungen und Reiseschilderungen sind von hohem Wert für die Theater- und Literaturgeschichte des beginnenden 19. Jahrhunderts, da Klingemann mit zahlreichen Dichtern und Theaterleuten bekannt war. Der Bericht über Weimar bestätigt, dass das Theater mehr und mehr zur Opernbühne wurde und gibt gleichzeitig einen kritischen Rückblick über den typischen weimarischen Stil. Eine der interessantesten Schilderungen ist außerdem der Besuch gemeinsam mit Devrient bei E. T. A. Hoffmann im Jahr 1821. - Zwei Umschläge mit handschriftl. Besitzeintrag und kl. Bibl.-Schildchen auf dem Rücken. Nur vereinzelt stockfleckig. Unbeschnitten, im Orig.-Lieferungszustand. - Goed. VI 442, 29. Vgl. Kippenberg I 1602 (nur die 2. Auflage).

Illustrated with very fine stipple-engraved plates by Maradan after drawings by Prêtre, except for the first plate which is signed Mademoiselle Joséphine Prêtre. "The book was first published in twelve parts, according to the signatures. The pretty plates show fruit with their leaves and flowers, from the apple to the pineapple, and the book was a sequel or rather a companion piece to 'La Corbeille de Fleurs' issued by the same publisher in the same year... The botanical sections of 'Le Panier de fruits' are well informed and mention contemporary research, while the literary accompaniments range from a poem based on Jauffret's prose to a translation of a moral tale by Maria Edgeworth". A fine uncut copy.//Barbier III, 768; Raphael, An Oak Spring Pomona, 45.
