        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.

        Signed Twice! Carte-de-visite photograph of Mrs. Robert E. Lee, Martha Washingtonís great-granddaughter

      Carte-de-visite Photograph Signed ìM.C. Leeî on lower mount. Sepia, 2.25î x 3.5î image, overall, 2.5î x 3.75î. 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!

        Stilleben mit Birnen und Mispeln.

      1819. Öl, auf festem braunem Papier, verso signiert und datiert "M. Wentzel ad. natur. Wien 1819.". 25:34,6 cm. Das in einem delikaten Kolorit und einer fein ausgewogenen Lichtführung gestaltete Stilleben entstand während Wentzels Aufenthalt in Wien, der durch die Datierung auf der Rückseite des Bildes sicher für 1819 angenommen werden darf.. Wentzel begann seine Ausbildung an der Akademie in Dresden in der Zeichenklasse von C. Toscani (1742-1815). Darüber hinaus wurde er von der Blumen- und Früchtemalerin C. Fried. Friedrich (1749-1815) und dem Historienmaler F. Hartmann (1774-1842) unterrichtet. Studienreisen unternahm er 1819 nach Wien und 1823 nach München. 1825 zog er nach Leipzig. Die Jahre 1828-1829 verbrachte er in Italien, insbesondere in Rom, Neapel und auf Sizilien. 1831 kehrte er nach Dresden zurück, wo er 1834-1864 Zeichenlehrer an der Technischen Bildungsanstalt war, 1863 wurde er zum Professor ernannt. Wentzels Hauptthemengebiete waren Blumen- und Früchtestilleben sowie Tierbilder. Durch seine Italienreise wurde er ebenso zur Landschaftsmalerei angeregt. Daneben war er auch als Bildhauer tätig.

FIRST EDITION, second issue with the preface unaltered and set in 24 lines rather than 23 and containing the commentary suggesting improprieties regarding "two sisters as the partakers of his revels", half-title present, pp.xxv+[i](blank)+[27]-84, 8vo., 1/2 speckled calf by Zaehnsdorf, ribbed gilt decorated spine, gilt lettered red morocco label, hinges lightly rubbed. Polidori, Lord Byron's personal physician, accompanied him into exile and was present at the Chateau near Geneva on the evening in 1816 when, after recounting German ghost stories, Byron suggested that each of those present should compose a supernatural tale. This was the occasion that gave rise to Mary Shelley's supernatural classic, Frankenstein, and to Polidori's The Vampyre - a much inferior work, but still celebrated as the first vampire-gothic in English, and extremely popular in its time (partly, no doubt, because it first appeared as the work of Byron).

        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 Enquiring into the Probability of a North-West Passage. In Two Volumes

      London: Strahan and Spottiswoode, for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1819 London: Strahan and Spottiswoode, for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1819. Second Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. Second edition. Rebound in library buckram. Minor tape repairs to fold-outs, expected transfer, otherwise an exceptional set. 1819 Hard Cover. lxix, 265, [2]; 258 pp. 8vo. Two fold-outs (one of Davis' Strait and Baffin's Bay, one depicting several geological instruments) and deviation chart follow text of vol. 2. 2-page terminal publisher ad in both volumes advertises other travel books. Published first in a single quarto volume, this work was reissued in a second edition of two octavo volumes the same year. Based on auction records, the second edition seems the more uncommon of the two, though it remains the more desirable edition, and includes aquatints and fold-outs not present in the edition offered here. An account of Ross's first Arctic expedition in 1818 (he returned in 1829 and 1850). Launched shortly after Ross rose to the rank of Commander of the Swedish Navy, the expedition's main achievements were to open northern Baffin's Bay to whaling, and to spur the further exploration of Lancaster Sound, which would ultimately prove to be the eastern extremity of the much-sought-for Northwest Passage. A critical navigational error made by Ross during the voyage (the controversy of which is discussed herein), prevented him from making this discovery himself.

An account of Ross's first Arctic expedition in 1818 (he returned in 1829 and 1850).

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. With a Life of the Author. Also, a View of the Doctrine of Smith, Com[ared with That of the French Economists

      London: Printed for William Allason and J. Maynard and W. Blair, 1819 An attractive early edition of Smith's masterpiece, first published in 1776. Contemporary mottled sheep, rebacked to style in modern calf, gilt spine with black morocco labels, new endpapers. . Three volumes, octavo. . Corners worn, some light foxing. Light marginal dampstain in preliminaries of Volume III. Overall a very good copy. The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory – the physiocrats had already suggested it and Turgot in particular had constructed an organised study of social wealth – his work is the first major expression of it…' (Printing and the Mind of Man, 221, describing the first edition).

        An Historical Geography of the Old and New TestamentIn Two Volumes

      Oxford - Clarendon Press, 1819. Oxford - Clarendon Press, 1819 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A highly descriptive account into the geographical mapping of places listed within the Old and New Testaments. Featuring nine folding maps, and one folding plate to volume one. As well as Volume two having four folding maps, and three folding illustrated plates. In their original publishers' bindings. Edward Wells was an English mathematician, geographer, and controversial theologian. From 1709 to 1719, Wells produced a Greek critical edition of the New Testament, published in Oxford. Wells drew from the variant readings collated in the edition of John Mill in the construction of the text. While Mill's edition had included the most thorough critical apparatus up to its time, the actual text was a reprint of that of Stephanus. Wells' edition was thus the first to offer the complete Greek New Testament while moving away from the Textus Receptus and toward what is now considered the standard critical text, Nestle-Aland. These text's represent the geographical mapping, of the places described within his translation. Complete in two volumes. Condition: In original publishers bindings. Externally, rubbing and loss to the extremities, and spines. Some spotting and sunning to the spines, as well as light marks to the boards. Both joints to volume one are starting. Internally, generally firmly bound, with some leaves working loose. Bright throughout, with the occasional spot, and handling mark. Some curling to pages and plates, although allplates are complete.
