      . Bleistift, weiß gehöht, auf bräunlichem Velin, rechts unten signiert "Führich". 20,2:22 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung Prof. Richard Jung, Freiburg, nicht bei Lugt. Zwei Flecken in der Darstellung rechts oben, linke obere Ecke ergänzt.. Nach anfänglicher Unterweisung durch seinen Vater Wenzel Führich ging Josef 1819 an die Prager Akademie und wurde Schüler von J. Bergler (1753-1829). Es folgte 1826 eine Wienreise. Neben Altarbildern entstanden Illustrationen zu religiösen und literarischen Stoffen. Während seines Romaufenthaltes 1827-1829 lebte er im Kreis der Nazarener und arbeitete am Freskenzyklus der Villa Massimo in Gemeinschaft mit J. Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872), Ph. Veit (1793-1877) und J.A. Koch (1768-1839) und vollendete das Tasso-Zimmer Fr. Overbecks (1789-1869). Um 1831 kehrte er nach Prag zurück. 1834 wurde er Kustos der Wiener Akademie-Galerie, 1840-1872 war er dort Professor für Historienmalerei. Unterbrochen wurde der Wiener Aufenthalt durch ein Venedig-Aufenthalt im Jahr 1838 sowie die Revolution von 1848, die zur Folge hatte, daß er Wien verlassen und für zwei Jahre nach Schönlinde/Nordböhmen zog. 1861 wurde er von Kaiser Franz Joseph in den Ritterstand erhoben, 1875 wurde er zum Ehrenbürger der Stadt Wien ernannt. Joseph von Führich hinterließ ein umfangreiches OEuvre mit dem Schwerpunkt auf religiösen Themen (Fresken, Altar- u.a. Gemälde, zahlreiche Illustrationsfolgen).

        A Statistical Historical & Political Description of The Colony of New South Wales, and its dependent Settlements in Van Diemen&#39;s Land

      London: G. and W.B. Whittaker, 1819. Octavo, presentation inscriptions on flyleaf and title; an excellent copy in contemporary calf, spine gilt, joints neatly restored. Wentworth hates Bligh. First edition of the first original work published by an Australian-born author. Wentworth&#39;s famous first book gives a good deal of information about New South Wales for intending migrants as well as expressing some of his own ideas on the future development of the colony. His belief in an Australian landed gentry, which he expounds here, stayed with him all his life. Wentworth was born in 1790 and spent his childhood on Norfolk Island and in Sydney, before travelling to England to complete his education. He returned to Sydney in 1810, by which time Bligh was in London. However Bligh&#39;s reign as governor was no distant memory and Wentworth deals with the events of his governorship in very specific detail. His account of the &#39;influence of the System of Government for the last fifteen years&#39; occupies about one-fifth of the book, and much of that is devoted to a powerful attack on the governorship of Bligh, and an argument that no future governor&#39;s power should be allowed to be as absolute. One suspects that in this section of the book he is representing his father D&#39;Arcy Wentworth&#39;s views. D&#39;Arcy, court-martialled by Bligh, never forgave him and was an influential figure in the group of rebels who would ultimately overthrow the governor. His son takes very evident pleasure in describing the events of &#39;26th of January, 1808, the memorable day when, by the spontaneous impulse of a united colony, [Bligh] was arrested; and fortunate for the cause of humanity is it that he was then arrested, for ever in the perpetration of the most atrocious outrages that ever disgraced the representative of a free government, has substantiated his claim to this character beyond the possibility of doubt. Dreading the resentment of the people whom he had so often and so wantonly oppressed, and having on his back the uniform which was never so dishonoured before, he skulked under a servant&#39;s bed in an obscure chamber of his house, but was at length discovered in this disgraceful hole, and conducted pale, trembling, and covered with flue, before the officer who had commanded his arrest; nor could this gentleman&#39;s repeated assurances that no violence should be offered his person, convince him for a considerable time that his life was in safety from the vengeance of the populace: so conscious was he of the enormity of his conduct, and of the justice of an immediate and exemplary retaliation…&#39;. The flyleaf inscription on this copy reads &#39;Presented by Edwd. Cooke Bill Master of the Barque Nelson - Bay of Islds 1832.&#39; This is an appealing addition to an Australian book, as the whaling ship Nelson is known to have sailed extensively in Australasian waters at this time.

        Decoy Elephants Catching a Male/Des Elephants Dressés, Attrapant un Mâle

      Edward Orme, London 1819 - During the nineteenth century, field sports, particularly the hunting of wild game, were a common colonial leisure activity in India and Africa. Large-game hunting, the pursual of animals such as elephants, lions, and tigers, was considered to be the most prestigious, thrilling, and dangerous type of hunting. The technique of 'trapping', in which an animal is lured and ensnared by the hunter through deceptive means, was frequently used and is depicted in this fine image from Williamson's 'Oriental Field Sports'. One of the finest and most detailed works on Indian Sport and wildlife, these images exemplify not only the native flora and fauna, but capture the excitement of the hunt and provide "a faithful representation of [the] picturesque country, together with the manners and customs of both the native and European inhabitants". (Prideaux) Captain Thomas Williamson, a British officer of the East India Company, served in Bengal for 20 years. An accomplished amateur artist, his sketches were then worked up into drawings by Samuel Howitt and engraved for publication. Samuel Howitt, artist and sportsman, was largely self-taught in his profession, though he belonged to the artistic circles of the day. He is considered by some critics to be second only to Stubbs in the ranks of British animal painters. He is well-known for his sporting scenes of racing and hunting and for scenes depicting both conventional and exotic animals like the rhinoceros, tiger, leopard, bear, deer and buffalo. Cf. Abbey Travel 427; cf. Mellon 88; cf. Nissen BBI 4416; cf. Prideaux, p. 282; cf. Schwerdt II, pp.297-298; cf. Tooley 508. Aquatint engraving, coloured by hand, by H. Merke, after Howitt from an original sketch by Williamson. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, two waterstains in the bottom margin, a 1 1/8" tear in the bottom margin.

        The Promised Land. A sermon delivered at Goshen, (Conn.) at the ordination of the Rev. Messers. Hiram Bingham & Asa Thurston , as Missionaries to the Sandwich Islands, Sept. 29, 1819

      Boston: Samuel T. Armstrong, 1819. Slim octavo, 40, xvi pages, title-page a little thumbed with a few closed tears, last leaf a little chipped, of few spots of foxing yet good, disbound lacking wrappers. Genesis of the Hawaiian mission. Rare and historically significant sermon delivered at the ordination of Hiram Bingham and Asa Thurston shortly before their departure to Hawaii as first envoy of the American Board of Foreign Missions: &#39;this rare pamphlet may be cited as the inception of the Christian missionary movement in Hawaii&#39; (Hill). The missionaries were accompanied by five assistants, their wives and three native teachers, all listed with respective roles allocated: interestingly the printer for the first Hawaiian mission press, Mr Elisha Loomis, is listed amongst the assistants. The work is rich in references to the first Hawaiian born missionary Henry Obookiah who was closely associated with the community at Goshen and a founding member of the mission school. Obookiah died in 1818, shortly before the departure of the mission to Hawaii, and the sadness and disappointment of the congregation is reflected throughout this rare book. The sermon was published under the auspices of the Mission School where the native teachers were trained alongside royalty: &#39;George Tamoree - son of Tamoree, king of Atooi and Oneeheow, two of the Sandwich Islands, who has been educated with the other Native Youths, at the foreign Mission School, Cornwall, Connecticut returns with the Mission to his Father.&#39; This copy was once in the possession of Statham Clary, with his ink manuscript note to the title-page. Clary was a Presbyterian missionary who was dispatched on a "domestic mission" to Bath, New York State, a frontier town with a belligerent population that lacked a church until Clary arrived in 1824. Here he achieved modest success under difficult circumstances, converting a handful of folk to his church through incessant labour and gifted sermons.

        Vue de l'Isle de T?n?dos, dans l'Archipel

      P. Didot l'ain, [Paris 1819 - A fine view of Tenedos Island in the Archipelago, from Melling's grand work 'Voyage Pittoresque de Constantinople et des rives du Bosphore' Born in Lorraine in 1763, Antoine Ignace Melling, artist and voyager, was trained in architecture and painting. At the age of 19, he went to Constantinople as part of the Russian Ambassador's retinue. After successfully completing several commissions for Hatice Sultan, the sister of Selim III, which included the renovation of her palace at Ortake?, Melling was employed as the Sultan's architect in 1795. His position as Royal architect gave him a privileged opportunity to observe the Ottoman court, and during his eighteen years there, he made many detailed drawings of the Sultan's palaces, Ottoman society, and Constantinople and its environs. Within a year of returning to Paris in 1803, Melling published a prospectus for the 'Voyage pittoresque', the first thirteen livraisons of which were published in 1809. He completed the engravings for this work in 1819. Cf. Atabey 798; cf. Blackmer 1105; cf. Brunet III, 1591; cf. Lipperheide 1431. Hand-coloured engraving by Schroeder, Le Rouge, and Duparc after Melling. (Two skillfully repaired tears to upper margin, one effecting the image area).

        Narrative of a Voyage in the Indian Seas , in the Nisus Frigate...During the years 1810 and 1811

      London: Richard Phillips, circa, 1819. Octavo, folding frontispiece map and three other plans and plates; one fold of the frontispiece map repaired with slight loss, title-page a little browned, overall very good in polished quarter calf by Bayntun. From Mauritius to India via the North West Cape. A warm and engaging description of a voyage to through the Indian Ocean to Java and beyond, with a tantalising glimpse of the sparse West Australia coastline. The work includes a large folding map of the track of the Nisus which shows it passing the coast near the North-West Cape. The work is also particularly interesting for Prior&#39;s account of Mauritius just months after Flinders was finally released (and is one of only a handful of contemporary books on the island). James Prior, an officer aboard the Nisus (a Royal Navy frigate under the command of Captain Philip Beaver) here provides a beautifully written account of a voyage to the Cape of Good Hope, Isles of Bourbon, France and Seychelles; to Madras and thenceforth to Java, St. Paul and Amsterdam islands. Prior&#39;s account includes a detailed and arresting description of the French capitulation of the Isle de France (present day Mauritius) during the final months of 1810. In many respects the West Australian coastline remained as enigmatic and impenetrable to English mariners in the early nineteenth-century as it had to the Dutch almost two centuries before. Lack of water and nourishment forbade landing, yet the quick curiosity of mariners such as James Prior begged investigation. He writes &#39;approaching New Holland on the 6th of August, in the morning, land was discovered in the vicinity of the north-west Cape, the most prominent part of the coast. As we neared it the eye anxiously ranged over the widely-extended surface, in order to fix on some inviting spot where might be traced the habitations of men; but nothing of this kind could be distinguished&#39;. He concludes that this land &#39;in its present unknown state, may safely retain the old appellation of Terra Incognita&#39;. The handsomely engraved folding frontispiece map includes the New Holland coastline (although Prior&#39;s account is not listed in Perry and Prescott&#39;s A Guide to Maps of Australia in Books Published 1780-1830). Eight pages of Prior&#39;s narrative concerns the armed landing at the Isle de France on 29 November 1810. The Isle de France was an important French outpost in the Indian Ocean with significant strategic and mercantile advantages coveted by Britain. In addition to the Prior&#39;s ebullient description, Narrative of a Voyage in the Indian Seas includes a detailed sounding chart of Port Louis to the eastward of Cannoner&#39;s point and a table of engraved text titled "Plan of the Landing of the British Army in Mapou Bay, Isle de France". From this we learn the numbers of men per vessel, their regiment, and deployment upon landing (for example, the Nisus transported Grenadiers of the Twelfth, amongst others, and deployed a flat barge and two cutters). The Isle de France holds a poignant place in the early history of Australia, being the place of Matthew Flinders confinement for over six years (indeed, Flinders sailed for England on 14 June 1810, a matter of months before the invasion here described).

        Instructions de Daprès sur la Navigation des Indes Orientales

      Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1819. Octavo, title-page a little shorter than the body of text (which has generous margins); a few spots; in a superb contemporary binding of crimson roan leather, ornately gilt, spine richly gilt with fleur-de-lys devices at centre of each compartment between bands, dark green moiré silk endpapers with complex gilt dentelle borders, sides with wide gilt borders, royal arms of Louis Philippe in gilt at centre of each side. Special copy bound for Louis-Philippe, the last king of France. A superb copy prepared in a royal binding, with the Bourbon arms, for the Duc d&#39;Orléans, the future King Louis-Philippe. At the time of publication of this work he had spent four years in Paris after returning from his long exile; a member of the court and a significant political figure throughout the Bourbon Restoration from 1815 to 1830, he finally ascended to the throne himself in 1830. He ruled France - the last king to do so - from 1830 to 1848. This is the final edition of d&#39;Après de Mannevillette&#39;s Instructions, the publication of data to explain and supplement his maps of the eastern oceans, collectively published as the Neptune Oriental. The text of the Instructions was updated several times by d&#39;Après de Mannevillette himself while he served as cartographer for the Compagnie des Indes, though further amendments followed his death in 1780. A number of additions based on discoveries made in the early nineteenth century make this 1819 version the most comprehensive and authoritative edition. Like the Neptune Oriental itself, the Instructions draws upon a wide range of sources to provide the most accurate information possible for navigating to the east. In addition to maps and published accounts by notable explorers, d&#39;Après de Mannevillette used logbooks from company ships, first-hand testimony from officers, anecdotal accounts from sailors and a rich correspondence with Abbé Lacaille, Alexander Dalrymple and other respected geographers of the period. The Instructions was used to provide information for the East India Pilot published in London in 1782, an indispensable navigational resource that likewise passed into many editions.

        Tiresias Was bred by His Grace the Duke of Portland in 1816 was got by Soothsayer out of Sledge. At Epsom he won the Derby Stakes beating 15 others among whom were Sultan, Euphrates, The Dominic, &c

      R. Pollard & Sons, London 1819 - A fine portrait of the winner of the 1819 Epsom Derby, engraved by James Pollard from his own original drawing. Tiresias is shown just before a race: his groom administers a last minute tonic (!) whilst his jockey (W. Clift) takes off an overcoat in preparation to mount, and his trainer looks on proudly. In the background can be seen the grand-stand of the race course (possibly Epsom). James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. "A stream of coaching paintings followed, many of which he engraved himself. From 1821 he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeplechasing on purpose-made courses, many recording the prowess of the few professional and more amateur riders of the day. [In all his work Pollard took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works and] it is Pollard's large racing scenes which really take off and into which one can gaze and discover a microcosm of the turf" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.146) Lane British Racing Prints p.146; cf. Selway James Pollard 1792-1867 p.47 (variant title); Siltzer p.214. Aquatint, coloured by hand, by James Pollard (Expert repairs to margins, one to a 2" tear touching image area).

        De l&#39;auscultation médiate

      Paris: J.-A. Brosson & J.-S. Chaude, 1819. <p>The Stethoscope</p><p>Laennec, René Théophile Hyacinthe (1781-1826). De l&#39;auscultation médiate ou traité dudagnostic des maladies des poumons et du coeur . . . 2 vols., 8vo. [5], viii-xlviii, 456, [8]; xvi, 472pp. 4 folding engraved plates numbered I-IV. Paris: J.-A. Brosson & J.-S. Chaudé, 1819. 204 x 124 mm. 19th century quarter morocco, boards, gilt spines (a little faded). Minor foxing, one plate number trimmed, but very good.</p><p>First Edition, First State, with the original cancellandum leaf a*2. Laennec&#39;s invention of the stethoscope, which he announced in his De l&#39;Auscultation médiate, provided the first adequate method for diagnosing diseases of the thorax, and represented the greatest advance in physical diagnosis between Auenbrugger&#39;s percussion and Röntgen&#39;s discovery of x-rays. Laennec used his new tool to study the sounds made by the movements of the heart and lungs, for which he invented a terminology. He described pneumothorax, established the fact that all phthisis is tuberculous, distinguished pneumonia from bronchitis and from pleuritis, and gave descriptions of bronchitis, edema of the lungs, emphysema, tuberculosis and lung cancer that have in many respects remained unsurpassed until today. He also provided the first description of chronic interstitial hepatitis, for which he coined the term "cirrhosis"; the disease is often called "Laennec&#39;s cirrhosis." The four folding plates illustrate Laennec&#39;s stethoscope (a short wooden tube), pathologic conditions of the lung, and deformity of the chest from chronic latent pleurisy.</p><p>P. J. Bishop, Laennec&#39;s bibliographer, states that "the first edition of Laennec&#39;s De l&#39;auscultation médiate was published on 15 August 1819, in a first printing of 2100 copies, with a second impression of 1500"; however, he does not indicate whether these printings correspond to the states with and without the original leaf a*2.

        Autograph letter signed to Dawson Turner

      London, 1819. <p>Young, Thomas (1773-1829). Autograph letter signed to Dawson Turner (1775-1858). [London] Welbeck Street, 7 December 1819. 1 page. 215 x 180 mm. Mounted, with handwritten caption beneath. Fine.</p><p>From British scientist Thomas Young, the founder of physiological optics and author of the wave theory of lights (see Garrison-Morton 1486-88, Printing and the Mind of Man 259, Dibner 152), to botanist and antiquary Dawson Turner, author of The Botanist&#39;s Guide through England and Wales (1805), the four-volume illustrated Fuci, sive, Plantarum fucorum generi a botanicis ascriptarum icones descriptiones et historia (1808-19), Account of a Tour in Normandy (1820), Guide . . . towards the Verification of Manuscripts by Reference to Engraved Facsimiles (1848) and several other works. Young&#39;s letter reads as follows:</p><p>"Dear Sir, I have the pleasure to inform you that our friend&#39;s picture is arrived without having suffered any injury, except that the canvas has been shaken loose and wants stretching, which can easily be done. I also beg to return my best thanks for the very elegant specimens of Mrs. Turner&#39;s arts which you have sent me, and I hope at some future time you will make good your obliging offer of letting me have a few more, as there are several of my friends who will be disposed to be beggars on the occasion. Believe me Dear Sir very truly yours Thomas Young."</p><p>"The very elegant specimens of Mrs. Turner&#39;s arts" that Young had received were most likely drawings or prints. Mary Turner was a skilled artist who had studied under both John Crome and John Sell Cotman; together with her equally talented daughters, she produced an enormous number of drawings, paintings, etchings and lithographs, which Turner used both in his own publications and as additional illustrations for the 8000 volumes in his library. Young wrote this letter from his Welbeck Street address, where he had lived and practiced medicine since 1799. Autograph letters from Thomas Young are rare-this is the first we have handled in our nearly forty years in business.</p>

        The Vampyre: A Tale

      London: Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, 1819 First Sherwood and earliest obtainable edition, third issue (Viets IV), with no author credited on the title page, shortened gathering A without the references to Mary Godwin and Jane Clermont, and "lmost" to page 36. Finely bound in full navy morocco, with five raised bands to the spine, boards ruled in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, laid endpapers. Very good, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, a hint of toning to the spine, light rubbing to the hinges and spine ends, a hint of offsetting to the edges of the endpapers, lacking the half-title, both "Extracts" present, a few faint traces of light and scattered spotting, a few faint pencil notations, otherwise bright and clean pages. Overall, an attractive copy of the first vampire story in English literature. The Vampyre was originally published by Henry Colburn in the April 1, 1819 issue of New Monthly Magazine under the title "The Vampyre: A Tale by Lord Byron." Although the tale was in fact written by John William Polidori, Byron&#39;s physician, this false attribution was continued in the first book form, also by Henry Colburn. Colburn&#39;s first state, with himself as publisher and Byron credited as author, was suppressed and no copies exist today. Colburn&#39;s second state (Viets I), of which only 4 or 5 copies survived, retained his imprint, removed the author&#39;s name, and included the half-title "A Tale related by Lord Byron to Dr. Polidori." Colburn then sold his printed sheets to Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, who produced a scare first issue (Viets II) with their publishing imprint and listing Byron as author. Sherwood&#39;s second issue (Viets III) mentioned no author, and, since the first Sherwood issue was also suppressed, it represents the first edition to be widely accessible to the public. This copy is the third Sherwood issue (Viets IV), with the main change being the removal of a slur referring to Mary Godwin Shelley and Clair Clairmont in the first "Extract" (page xiv). Due to its complicated printing history, The Vampyre in Viets&#39; first and second states are virtually unattainable for modern collectors, and, accordingly, copies of Viets&#39; third state (the second Sherwood issue) are the first truly available issues, yet still exceedingly scarce. The Vampyre is a short gothic novel that is considered the forerunner of the vampire genre; while disparate components of vampirism appeared throughout history&#39;s horror stories, Polidori was the first writer to create a cohesive vampire character - a withdrawn, aristocratic male with an insatiable thirst for blood - that would set the standard for all subsequent vampire novels. In The Vampyre, Aubrey, a wealthy, orphaned Englishman, encounters Lord Ruthven, a mysterious nobleman who is, in fact, a vampire. Although he is at first oblivious to his acquaintance&#39;s true nature, Aubrey eventually realizes that Ruthven leaves a trail of dead bodies in his wake, but not in time to save his own sister from his clutches. Polidori, Byron&#39;s personal physician, first wrote The Vampyre while traveling throughout Europe with Byron, during which time the pair stayed in Switzerland with Mary and Percy Shelley and Clair Clairmont. After reading German horror stories from the French collection Fantasmagoriana (1813), the group penned their own tales, which developed not only into Polidori&#39;s Vampyre, but also Mary Shelley&#39;s Frankenstein (1823). The Vampyre was an instant commercial success, in part due to it being falsely attributed to Byron, although both Byron and Polidori denied the former&#39;s involvement.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        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.

      John Murray London 1819 - First edition. 4to., xl, 252, cxliv pp., 7 maps and charts (6 folding), and 25 aquatint or engraved plates and coastal profiles (15 coloured and 7 folding), period calf-backed marbled boards, raised bands, gilt spines, marbled endpapers. Several plates foxed, a few creases from misfolds, some offsetting to folding plates and to title, bindings rubbed, edgewear. First edition of Ross's famous first voyage. Ross, along with William Parry, James Clark Ross, and Edward Sabine (who would all become famous explorers in their own right) attempted on their journey to proceed westward through Lancaster Sound. Deceived, quite possibly by a mirage, Ross described the passage as barred by a mountain range that he named the Croker Mountains. He then returned to England, losing his only possibility of penetrating the Northwest passage. His observations were initially accepted as conclusive, and he was promoted to post rank on 7 December 1818. Controversy would soon follow, as Sir John Barrow, furious that the attempt to find the open polar sea had failed, vented his anger in person to Ross, and the Admiralty, having learned that there were some doubts as to the existence of the Croker Mountains, dispatched another expedition under the command of Parry. Edward Sabine, in his account of the voyage, claimed that Ross was the only person to have seen the Croker Mountains and that he had misrepresented some scientific results of the voyage. Parry's return in 1820 brought further proof that Ross's assertions had been incorrect, and, despite his willingness to make another voyage, Ross was not given another opportunity to lead an Arctic expedition until 1829.

Imprint on verso: ìStonewall / Art Gallery. / Boude & Miley, / Lexington, / Va.î Above imprint, penned by Mrs. Lee: ìFor my kind though / unknown friend / T.L. Jones / M.C. Lee.î Fading and toning to image, trimmed at top edge. Mounting remnants on verso. Vey Good condition. Mrs. Robert E. Leeís ìkind though unknown friendî was Thomas Laurens Jones (1819-1887). Born in North Carolina and raised in South Carolina, T.L. Jones moved to Kentucky in 1849 became a member of the Kentucky Legislature (1853-1855). Even though he opposed secession, he was arrested in 1862 as a Southern sympathizer and was imprisoned for three months at the Newport Barracks in Kentucky and at Camp Chase in Columbus, Ohio. After the war, he was elected as a Democrat to represent Kentucky in the U.S. House of Representatives (1867-1871, 1875-1877). Mary Custis was Martha Washingtonís great granddaughter. She was the daughter of George Washington Parke Custis, son of John Parke Custis. Two years after John Parke Custisí father, Daniel Parke Custis, died in 1757, his widowed mother, Martha Dandridge Custis, married George Washington. John Parke Curtis was 26 when he died in 1781. George and Martha Washington raised at Mount Vernon the two youngest of Johnís four children, 2Ω-year-old Nelly and seven month old George Washington Parke Custis. George Washington wrote in his will, in part, ìI give and bequeath to George Washington Parke Custis, the Grandson of my wife, and my Ward, and to his heirs, the tract I hold on four mile run in the vicinity of Alexandria, containing one thousd two hundred acres, more or less...î On this land on the Potomac River, George Washington Parke Custis built a mansion he called Arlington House which was inherited, at his death in 1857, by Mary, his sole surviving child, who had married Robert E. Lee in 1831. It is known today as the Custis-Lee Mansion and overlooks Arlington Cemetery.

        A Statistical Historical & Political Description of The Colony of New South Wales, and its dependent Settlements in Van Diemen's Land

      G. and W.B. Whittaker, London 1819 - Octavo, early manuscript ownership to the title-page, slight preliminary foxing yet a most attractive copy in mid nineteenth-century half calf with gilt spine lettering and ornament. First edition of the first original work published by an Australian-born author, an important work providing invaluable insights into the rapidly expanding colony. This copy has the three printing errors noted by Wantrup in their uncorrected state indicating it is the first impression of the work. Written to encourage emigration to Australia, the book also demanded free institutions in the colony. "It is the beginning of the whole genre of books written to urge intending migrants to choose Australia over the alternatives, which were mostly cheaper to get to, and which include some of the first manifestoes of Australian patriotism ?" (People, Print and Paper). Wentworth, now famous for his role in the exploration of the Blue Mountains, wrote this account of New South Wales while studying law in England. It is a personal account of the colony rather than an objective history, and as such gives valuable insights into a privileged colonial life under Governor Macquarie. His book forms a valuable source of information relating to the state of the colony in the very early years of free settlement. The role of transported convicts is a central issue to the future of the colony, and a chapter of 44 pages describes the system of government during Macquarie's rule. The rehabilitation of convicts was subject of special interest to Wentworth, especially their role in colonial society upon completion of their sentences. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Address, delivered at a meeting for prayer, with reference to the Sandwich Mission , in the Brick Church in Hartford, October 11, 1819

      Lincoln & Stone, Hartford, Connecticut 1819 - Octavo booklet, 16 pp., with author's dedication to top margin of the title-page, later library numerals; a good copy in a stitched cloth backing. An uncommon pamphlet related to early American missionary activity in Hawaii. It reprints a speech made at the marriage of the pioneer Hawaiian missionary Reverend Hiram Bingham to Sybil Moseley. The ceremony was conducted just before the departure of the couple for the Hawaiian islands. The address was delivered by Thomas Gallaudet, principal of the American Asylum for Deaf and Dumb persons and sometime scholar of Hawaiian languages. This is an interesting association copy, being inscribed by the owner "For the Revd. Edwd. D. Griffin with the respects of the author" (The Reverend Edward Griffin was Presbyterian minister and advocate of South Sea missionary endeavour). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Promised Land. A sermon delivered at Goshen, (Conn.) at the ordination of the Rev. Messers. Hiram Bingham & Asa Thurston , as Missionaries to the Sandwich Islands, Sept. 29, 1819

      Samuel T. Armstrong, Boston 1819 - Slim octavo, 40, xvi pages, title-page a little thumbed with a few closed tears, last leaf a little chipped, of few spots of foxing yet good, disbound lacking wrappers. Genesis of the Hawaiian mission. Rare and historically significant sermon delivered at the ordination of Hiram Bingham and Asa Thurston shortly before their departure to Hawaii as first envoy of the American Board of Foreign Missions: 'this rare pamphlet may be cited as the inception of the Christian missionary movement in Hawaii' (Hill). The missionaries were accompanied by five assistants, their wives and three native teachers, all listed with respective roles allocated: interestingly the printer for the first Hawaiian mission press, Mr Elisha Loomis, is listed amongst the assistants. The work is rich in references to the first Hawaiian born missionary Henry Obookiah who was closely associated with the community at Goshen and a founding member of the mission school. Obookiah died in 1818, shortly before the departure of the mission to Hawaii, and the sadness and disappointment of the congregation is reflected throughout this rare book. The sermon was published under the auspices of the Mission School where the native teachers were trained alongside royalty: 'George Tamoree - son of Tamoree, king of Atooi and Oneeheow, two of the Sandwich Islands, who has been educated with the other Native Youths, at the foreign Mission School, Cornwall, Connecticut returns with the Mission to his Father.' This copy was once in the possession of Statham Clary, with his ink manuscript note to the title-page. Clary was a Presbyterian missionary who was dispatched on a "domestic mission" to Bath, New York State, a frontier town with a belligerent population that lacked a church until Clary arrived in 1824. Here he achieved modest success under difficult circumstances, converting a handful of folk to his church through incessant labour and gifted sermons. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Vom Turnen mit Bezug auf den Zweykampf.

      Frankfurt a. M., Andreä, 1819. Kl.-8°. X, 110 S. Alter Pappband.. . Anonym erschienene Erstausgabe des politisch heiklen Werkes des Frankfurter Bankiers (bis 1816) und Schriftstellers Johann Jakob von Willemer (1760-1838), der dort dem Goethekreis angehörte. - Willemer schrieb u. a. selbst Theaterstücke ("Die Jacobiner", 1794) sowie pädagogische Bücher, wie: "Bruchstücke zur Menschen- und Erziehungskunde" (1810-16). - In dritter Ehe war er ab 1814 mit der Schauspielerin und Lyrikerin Marianne von W. (1784-1860) verheiratet, die von Goethe geliebt wurde, was diesen zu den Suleika-Lieder des West-Östlichen Divan inspirierte. - // - Unser Buch ist ein Dokument des Beginns der Restauration: Nach der Ermordung Kotzebues (23. März 1819), was Willemer als "Willkühr und Eigenmacht" (Beginn s. Vorworts) verdammt, bekämpften die deutschen Regierungen die revolutionäre Studenten- und Turnerbewegung von Turnvater Jahn, der beim berühmten Wartburgfest (18. 10. 11817) reaktionäre Bücher u. a. auch die "Geschichte des deutschen Reichs" von Kotzebue hatte verbrennen lassen. - // - "Jahns Turnschule ist geschlossen." lautet die Überschrift des ersten Teils (S. 1-64), in dem W. die moralischen Vorteile des Turnens darlegt. - Der Verfasser plädierte dafür, dass "das Turnen, insofern es wie alle Erziehungs- Anstalten unter obrigkeitlicher Aufsicht steht, nicht unterdrückt werden sollte! [...] Die moralische Seite des Turnens ist nicht die Bezweckung eines blinden Gehorsams, sondern innerer Erstarkung und auch äußere, damit der Mensch, nach denen er die Pflichten, die ihm gegen Gott und den Staat unterliegen, erkannt, sich auch mit der erforderlichen Kraft ausgerüstet sehe, denselben nachzuleben. [...] Nicht der Übermut der Jugend, nicht der Volksdespotismus, der Gelddespotismus ist den Thronen gefährlich." (Vorwort) - Im zweiten Teil (S. 65-110) handelt er "Von der Möglichkeit einer durch das Turnen einzuleitenden Verbesserungen des Zweikampfes.", wobei er sich gegen Pistolenduelle ausspricht, da hier durch einen Zufallstreffer auch der ungeübte Schwächling siegen kann. Der Sohn Willemers aus erster Ehe war 1819 im Duell gestorben, wohl auch deshalb plädiert er für den staatlich reglementierten Schwertkampf, in dem der geschickte und geübte Turner siegt. - // - DABEI: Kopie (4°) einer zeitgenössischen Zeitungskritik des Buches in: "Ergänzungsblätter zur Jenaischen allgemeinen Literatur - Zeitung" von 1820. - Vorsatz mit Widmung in schöner alter Handschrift (1824). - Schwacher Stempel auf Titel. - Auf dem Titelblatt ist in schöner Handschrift "K. v. Raumer" eingetragen. Ein Vorbesitzer hielt wohl den Prof. der Mineralogie und Pädagogen Karl Georg von Raumer (1783-1865) für den Autor, weil Raumer am Breslauer Turnstreit teilgenommen hatte und 1819 wegen seiner Sympathien für die Burschenschaften von Breslau nach Halle strafversetzt worden war. - Sehr schönes Exemplar mitweißem, fleckenlosem Papier, innen praktisch DRUCKFRISCH. - Sehr selten!
