        The British Settlement in Pennsylvania

      [ PA ], [ 1819 ]. Edition Unknown. As issued. A good copy with some spotting; old folds; separation at fold intersection or split along fold (no loss). b'dsheet. There is a 6.5 x 8 inch eng. map of the loc. within the state of PA. An unusual promotional piece for English emigrants to America. The town of Britannia was to be located in a large tract of land in Susquehanna County in Pennsylvania. This is about 30 miles south of present day Binghamton NY. The text touts the good land and climate of the area and the relative ease of access to Philadelphia and New York City. The text states that Nov. 15, 1819 is the designated deadline date for completion of the purchase of the land so that the settlement could go forward. The text has been attributed; it is derived from a pamphlet written in Phila. in 1819 by a Dr.C B Johnson ( Sabin # 36198 ).The engraved map on the broadsheet is generous and detailed. It was one a H S Tanner's early accomplishments. The broadsheet is formatted so that it could be folded and used as a mailer. The map, in this copy, is printed upside down in relation to the text possibly denoting an early issue point. OCLC cites 5 loc's (one supplied by us 30 yrs. ago) but not in Howes or Sabin; see Ristow for Tanner citations.

        Picturesque scenery in the Holy Land and Syria, delineated during the campaigns of 1799 and 1800. Second edition.

      London, B. R. Howlett for Thomas McLean, 1819.. Folio (500 x 350 mm). IV, 42 pp. With 19 aquatints by Edward Orme after sketches by Spilsbury in original hand colour. Contemp. half cloth with red boards and printed label to upper cover.. Second edition of English naval surgeon Francis Spilsbury's account of his travels in the Holy Land and Syria during the Napoleonic campaigns there, with 19 finely hand-colored folio aquatint views. Spilsbury was surgeon on board HMS Tigre during the campaigns of 1799 and 1800. The Tigre brought Sir William Sidney Smith to defend Acre against Napoleon's siege, and led a naval force in support of Turkish armies which finally relieved Acre, and his text gives some account of the military campaigns and the Turkish dignitaries. In his reminiscences Napoleon accused Smith of making him miss his destiny, as Smith's timely appearance thwarted Napoleon's drive to invade Syria and forced him to retreat to Egypt. The views are mostly connected with the coastal towns of modern Lebanon and Israel, though several are from Spilsbury's travels inland to meet the Grand Vizier in charge of the Turkish army, Jezzar Pacha, and other dignitaries. First published in folio in 1803, with a mezzotint portrait of Sir William Sidney Smith that was not included in this second edition; a third followed in 1823. - Some staining to covers; aquatints are perfectly preserved. - Tooley 464. Cf. Atabey 1168f. Blackmer 1585. Abbey, Travel 381. Colas 2788. Weber II, 835. Aboussouan 852.

        Fontaine de Sari-Yéri, près Buyuk-Déré]

      P. Didot l'ainé, Paris 1819 - Etching with engraving by Dupare after Melling with later professional hand-colouring. Proof before title. Very good condition. A fine view of the fountain of Sari-Yéri, near Buyuk-Dèrè, outside of Constantinople, 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 Ortakeï, 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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A Tour from the City of New-York, to Detroit, in the Michigan Territory, made between the 2d of May and the 22d of September, 1818.

      New-York: For the Author by Kirk & Mercein, 1819. - 8vo., (9 ¼ x 6 inches). Partially unopened, untrimmed (a bit spotted throughout). Fine folding engraved frontispiece map with original handcoloring in outline (one or two spots); 2 folding engraved maps (a bit browned). Contemporary half crushed morocco, green cloth, the spine in six compartments, with five raised bands, gilt-lettered in two; supra libros gilt-stamped on front cover; top edge gilt (a bit rubbed). First edition. Including three maps, showing routes from the Northeast to Detroit; the "Straits of Niagara"; and "Environs of Detroit." "William Darby, born 1775, grew up on the western Pennsylvania frontier, migrated to Natchez in 1799, wandered on to Louisiana in 1805, returned to the east in 1815, and made his living as a writer, lecturer, and government clerk until his death in 1854. During his lifetime a nation was born; half a continent was subdued. Cities sprang up where Indian war-cries once echoed, and railroads replaced the hunters' paths. The frontier moved west, and as it moved, civilized Americans began to discover its romance and to unravel its often bloody history. A child of that frontier, William Darby helped to move it, map it, and finally to memorialize it in the literature of the new nation. "As a Mississippi planter, young Darby was a failure, but in Louisiana he built a successful career as a surveyor in the western reaches of the state. By dint of grueling labor and painstaking application he elevated himself to the status of geographer, and in 1816 he published an important 'Description of Louisiana,' which was followed by an 'Emigrant's Guide to the Western and Southwestern States and Territories' and an extensive 'View of the United States.' The maps that accompanied these volumes were generally excellent, and Darby's descriptions of the country possessed both topographic exactitude and considerable literary merit. "Having turned east in order to pursue the publication of his geographical findings, Darby soon found employment as a surveyor along the Canadian border. By 1819, when he published 'A Tour from the City of New-York, to Detroit,' his earlier straightforward prose style had taken on the colors of romantic literature, so moved was the 'astonished traveler' when he viewed such natural wonders as Niagara Falls" (Robert R. Rea for Florida Historical Quarterly).

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

      London: G. and W.B. Whittaker, 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.

        [The ships Erebus and Terror in the Arctic]. [England?, ca. 1850?]. Oil painting on canvas (65.5 x 91 cm), showing 2 ships in a rough sea amid dangerous rocks and ice. Later mounted on another canvas and stretched over a wooden frame, with a handwritten note about the painting pasted on the back.

      www.antipodean.com/cgi-bin/antipodean/8169; for the Carmichael painting: http://collections.rmg.co.uk/collections/objects/12706.html; for Parry's 1819/20, Ross's 1839/43 and Franklin's 1845/46 voyages: Howgego, 1800-1850, P9, R27 & F21. A mid-19th-century oil painting depicting two ships (3-masted barks) in a rough sea amid dangerous rocky and icy cliffs, mountains and outcroppings. Pasted to the back is an old slip of paper with a note (the parts of the text in parentheses are lost, but have been filled in based on an earlier transcription): "The sailing ships ('Erebus' and 'Terror') passing through the Davis Straig(ht) in 1846 [the 6 later "corrected" to 7]. It was on this expedition that Sir John Franklin discovered the North West Passage, and in which he lost his life". In fact Franklin sailed these two ships through Davis Strait in 1845, passed on through Lancaster Sound in search of a Northwest Passage and spent the winter on Beechey Island. In 1846 he and his expedition made their way through (using the modern names) Peel Sound and Franklin Strait into McClintock Channel, where they got caught in the ice near King William Island. Most of the crew died there, including Franklin in 1847. A few made it on foot to the mainland but were unable to reach any outpost. The last died in 1848. Since no one who saw the ships in these waters survived, the anonymous artist who made the present painting appears to have turned to an 1847 painting of the same ships by John Wilson Carmichael in London, though he did not copy it. Carmichael had earlier made a drawing of an expedition in search of the Northwest Passage by William Edward Parry (who made three expeditions in the years 1819 to 1825, each with two ships), but in 1847 he used parts of his existing Arctic scene as models for the composition of a new painting showing an Antarctic scene of James Clark Ross's voyage with the ships Erebus and Terror in 1842: "'Erebus' and 'Terror' in the Antarctic". Carmichael's drawing and painting survive at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. The central ship in the present painting follows that in Carmichael's painting quite closely and the second ship more distantly. The rocks and ice are similar in general appearance and arrangement but quite different in detail.With some restorations along the edges of the painting and a small scuffmark near the foot toward the left, but generally in good condition.

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.

        Shooting at the Edge of a Jungle/Les Chasseurs Tirant a l'Entrée Dune Tanière

      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. Although the hunting of large-game was considered the most prestigious, small-game hunting, or 'shooting' as the British referred to it, which targeted birds and small animals such as the hare, was also extremely popular at the time. As pictured in this fine image from Williamson's 'Oriental Field Sports', huntsmen were frequently accompanied by their servants and several hunting dogs. 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 J. Hamble, after Howitt from an original sketch by Williamson. Very good condition.

        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).

Il suggère ainsi d&#146;accorder aux habitants les pouvoirs de s&#146;administrer, de se taxer et de se juger eux-mêmes, puisque leur fierté naturelle ne pouvait se résoudre à plier devant des autorités qui n&#146;étaient pas créoles.
