        Geological Map of Sussex by W. Smith Mineral Surveyor A New Map of Sussex Divided into Hundreds. Exhibiting Its Roads, Rivers, Parks Etc.

      Published by J. Cary Engraver and Mapseller, No 181 the Strand, January 1819., London, - Smith's rare geological survey of Sussex Engraved broadsheet map with hand colour; small loss to the left margin, slightly affecting the text but not the image, some strengthening to the folds; manuscript text on the verso. First edition of William Smith's geological map of Sussex, one in a series of county maps produced by Smith, each separately issued, which were the first detailed geological maps of specific areas. Smith's individual maps are extremely rare on the market. Smith produced the first geological map of England and Wales in 1815, which contained "an amazing amount of correct detail" (D.S.B.) and was the basis for all the geological maps that followed. In 1819 he began the publication of a geological atlas of England and Wales. Published in parts over five years, it remained unfinished, containing twenty-one maps of various English counties. "All the county maps published contain much more information than was shown on Smith's large map of 1815, and indicate that during the intervening years he had done much to increase his knowledge. The maps are based on Cary's county maps, and are headed 'By W. Smith, Mineral Surveyor.' Each map measures 21 ½ inches by 19 1/4 inches [across the ruled border]; the scale varies slightly but averages 3 miles to an inch."–Sheppard, William Smith: His Maps and his Memoirs (1920), p. 155. Smith's map of Sussex was first published by Cary in 1819, alongside Norfolk, Kent and Wiltshire. It is a reissue of Cary's map of 1801, with the addition of the geological information. In his major work 'A Delineation of the Strata of England and Wales with part of Scotland' of 1815, Smith ordered the strata through a colour key, whereas here he identifies them by name and number with coloured boxes, and places them around the boundary adjacent to their outcrop. On this map, a box and its related text overlap the engraved border. Stratigraphy 2, 3 and 4. Brick Earth and Sand, with pebbly Gravel and Crag occasionally. The highest Strata in the County. 5. Chalk, the upper beds of which are soft enough to mark with, abounding with flinty Nodules. The under beds are much harder and without Flints. 6 and 7. Green Sand and Golt Brock Earth, at the edge of the Chalk Hills. 8 and 10. Sand, beneath the Golt Brick Earth, in the lower part of which in Dorsetshire, the Portland Rock is found. 11. Oaktree Clay, part Slaty, and highly Bituminous, as at Kimmeridge. 13. Sand and Sandstone, laying below the Oaktree. The deepest Strata in the County.

        A critical examination of the first principles of geology; in a series of essays. [First edition].

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown 1819 - London, octavo, iv, [ii], 336 p. and text illustrations. ***CONTENT: George Bellas Greenough (1778-1855) was a pioneering English geologist best known for his geological maps of England and Wales. He was well read and very active in scientific circles, and was co-founder and first president of the Geological Society of London. This volume is his most significant work, in which he reviews several ideas of his predecessors and contemporaries, including: stratification, the figure of the Earth, "formations", the order of succession in rocks, the history of strata (as deduced from their fossil contents), mineral veins, and more. Herein, Greenough was an eloquent critic, but his contemporaries were likewise critical of his refusal to consider the chronologic, stratigraphic and paleoenvironmental value of fossils. He was also skeptical of the concepts of 'stratum' and 'formation' as employed by William Smith. Nevertheless, Greenough was widely respected for his intellect and advocacy in the cause of geological studies. ***CONDITION: This is a VG copy in contemporary 3/4 calf and marbled boards, with a gilt-lettered and decorated backstrip. The covers are sound but rubbed, with erosion to the head and foot of the spine; backstrip gilt worn but legible. Joints and hinges starting but holding, binding very firm. Save for the very occasional bit of foxing, the text pages are near pristine: fresh, clean and bright. The only evidence of previous ownership is the inked signature of Jer[emiah] Van Rensselaer on the title page and his penciled annotations in the text. This is a complete, internally handsome copy of a scarce and classic treatise. BMNH 730. Challinor 92. Ward and Carozzi 951. International shipping will be extra for this book, but only at my cost.

        Abbildung und populäre Beschreibung von acht und vierzig Giftpflanzen, für Jedermann, der nicht Botaniker ist.

      Augsburg: Abraham Geiger, 1819. hardcover. Sehr gut. Hrsgg. in der Martin Engelbrecht'schen Kunsthandlung in Augsburg. Mit 48 kolorierten Pflanzentafeln (davon eine gefaltet), eine gefalt. tabellarische Tafel und 3 zusätzlichen kolor. Tafeln mit Tierdarstellungen. Insg. 52 Tafeln, davon 51 koloriert. 4to.

Pritzel 4510. Zweite Ausgabe, die erste erschien 1817 in 12 Heften. - Das mit prachtvollen Tafeln ausgestattete Werk über Giftpflanzen ist ein schönes Beispiel für den drucktechnischen Übergang vom Kupferstich auf den Steindruck. Die ersten 12 Tafeln sind kolorierte Lithographien, die übrigen Kupferstiche. "Die große Tradition des von Kupferstechern illustrierten Buches (in Augsburg) ging endgültig mit den naturkundlichen Werken von Jacob Hübner, Gottlieb Tobias Wilhelm und Carl Christian Wilhelm Juch zu Ende" (Gier/Janota, Augsburger Buchdruck und Verlagswesen, S. 515). Juch (1772-1821) war Arzt, Chemiker und Pharmazeut, Schüler von Trommsdorff, Verfasser verschiedener naturkundlicher und pharmazeutischer Werke. Ab 1801 war er Prof. für Medizin und Chemie an der Universität Altdorf bei Nürnberg, später unterrichtete er in München und Augsburg. Bekannt wurde er durch seine kommentierte Übersetzung der "Pharmacopoea Borussica". - Auf dem fliegenden Vorsatzblatt eine ganzseitig angelegte Widmung von 1820, in schöner zeitgenössischer Handschrift, für den Lehrer Joseph Anton Geist an der "höhern Bürgerschule in Neustadt Kempten". Geist wurde in der Region als Autor des vielfach aufgelegten "Briefbüchlein für Werktagsschulen" bekannt. Verfasst wurde die Widmung vom "Koenigl. Baier. Local-Schul-Commissair u. Stadtpfarrer Joan Georg Nepomuc Gasser". - Beim Bezug des Einbands handelt es sich wohl um ein einfaches Buntpapier, das mit Zinnoberrot überstrichen wurde (Struktur scheint noch durch). Ecken etwas bestoßen, die Außengelenke teils mit Abschabungen. Die Tafeln alle sauber, nur ganz vereinzelt minimal fleckig. Die gefaltete Tafel 45 mit kleinem Einriß an der unteren Falzung. Textseiten stellenweise ganz leicht braun- oder fingerfleckig.

Ce mémoire avait été soumis à l'académie des sciences en 1812, mais n'ayant pas remporté le prix il ne fut pas imprimé dans les mémoire de l'académie. Il parait donc ici pour la première fois. On y trouve la détermination du zéro absolu que Clément et Désormes évaluent par plusieurs méthodes à -266,66 ° C. Ils y définissent surtout une méthode expérimentale pour déterminer le ratio ?=Cp/Cv de la chaleur spécifique à volume constant et à pression constante. Volume provenant de la bibliothèque Becquerel avec cet émouvant envoi d'Antoine César Becquerel à son petit fils Henry Becquerel : "Donné à mon petit fils henry, qu'il conserve cela en souvenir de mes trois premiers mémoires publiés en 1819 et du tendre attachement que je lui porte". Ces trois mémoires de minéralogie occupent les pages 235 à 240, 308 à 309, 462 à 467. ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Contemporary quarter sheep, gilt flat spine, title in gilt on lettering-piece. 4to (250x203 mm), 480 pages and 5 plates Tail of spine chipped, joints splitting A few light waterstains.

        The Sham-Robbery, Committed by Elijah Putnam Goodridge on His Own..

      1819. Fletcher Webster's Copy of an Account of One of His Father's Famous Cases [Trial]. Jackman, Joseph. Goodridge, Elijah Putnam [1787-1851], Defendant. The Sham-Robbery, Committed by Elijah Putnam Goodridge on His Own Person, In Newbury Near Essex Bridge, Dec. 19, 1816: With a History of His Journey to the Place Where he Robbed Himself: and His Trial with Mr. Ebenezer Pearson, Whom he Maliciously Arrested for Robbery: Also the Trial of Levi & Laban Kenniston. Concord, NH: Printed for the Author, 1819. 151, [1] pp. 12mo (6-3/4" x 4-1/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in plain wrappers, untrimmed edges. Light soiling and a few minor stains, wrappers worn, but secure. Light browning to text, light foxing in a few places, faint dampstaining to a few leaves, "Daniel Webster, Jr" in pencil to front endleaf and recto of rear wrapper, "Polly Webster" to rear free endpaper. $500. * Only edition. Full account of the several trials connected with this famous Massachusetts case, by one of the accused. Daniel Webster served as one of the defense attorneys shortly after his return to private practice following his two terms in Congress. The respected and well-connected Major Goodridge's accusation of robbery against the witless, low-life Kenniston brothers was supported by popular sentiment, until Webster began his defence, which meticulously unraveled the Major's story and succeeded in gaining the Kenniston's acquittal. The trial was an early landmark in Webster's legal career, and his final address to the jury, first printed here, is considered a classic of Webster's oratory. It was later anthologized. Daniel Fletcher Webster [1818-1862], known as Fletcher Webster, was Daniel Webster's eldest son. Chief Clerk of the U.S. State Department when his father was Secretary of State, he commanded the 12th Massachusetts Infantry during the Civil War. He was killed at the Second Battle of Bull Run. We are unsure of the identity of Polly Webster. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 14017.

        Nouveau Système de Minéralogie. Traduit du Suédois.

      Paris Méquignon-Marvis 1819 - (20,5 x 13 cm). (4) VI, 314 (1) S. Dekorativer Halblederband der Zeit mit hübscher Rückenvergoldung. Erste französische Ausgabe, von Berzelius selbst aus dem Schwedischen übersetzt. - "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 that 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). - Linke obere Ecke durchgehend mit kleinem Fleckenrand, gegen Ende hin größer werdend.

        Texas

      May 1, 1819. Rare Autograph Document Signed “James Cummins,” one page, 7.5” x 3”. [Arkansas County, Missouri Territory], May 1, 1819. In full “Mrs Hemphill I autherize [sic] William Mills to set or subscribe my name to a Bond as security for James Bryan by an appication [sic] of himself being a stranger from your sevt.” Uneven edges, worn at folds, uniformly foxed, tiny holes at folds. Fine condition. In 1811, John and Nancy Hemphill and their family moved from Georgia to the territory that became Arkansas. John established a salt making plant at what is now Arkadelphia, the earliest recorded factory in Arkansas. On May 1, 1819, after his death, his widow Nancy sold the salt works to James Cummins and James Bryan. They paid in cash and two notes. By this document, Cummins authorizes William Mills to sign his name to a bond as security for James Bryan. They failed to make payment on the first note for $1,075 and Mrs. Hemphill sued and obtained a judgment against them. She could not collect and the salt works reverted to the Hemphill estate. The family continued to operate the factory until the 1850s. It is possible that Mrs. Hemphill could not collect the money because Bryan died and Cummins left Missouri Territory for Mexico. James Bryan (1788-1822) had married Stephen F. Austin’s sister, Emily, in 1813. Moses Austin, Emily and Stephen’s father, died in 1821; James Bryan died a year later. Stephen left Missouri to continue his father’s colonization project in Texas. Emily stayed in Missouri and remarried. By 1822, James Cummins (c. 1773-1849) had settled in Texas on the east bank of the Colorado River, opposite the present town of Columbus. On August 23, 1823, he became the first alcalde (chief executive and judge) of the town of San Felipe de Austin, serving four years. Founded by Stephen F. Austin, it was the unofficial capital of his colony. On July 7, 1824, as one of Stephen F. Austin’s “Old Three Hundred,” he was granted six leagues and a labor of land in what is now Colorado and Austin counties. He received the land bonus because he was building a saw and grist mill. In December 1826, a small group of Texas colonists headed by brothers Haden and Benjamin Edwards formed their own government at Nacogdoches, proclaiming it the independent Republic of Fredonia. They made treaties with local Indians. When Mexican troops and members of Austin’s colony, including Cummins, reached Nacogdiches on January 31, 1827, they found that Fredonia had been dissolved; the rebels had fled to Louisiana. James Cummins took an active part in all Texian affairs. He served on committees and drafted petitions. Cummins had an extensive correspondence with Austin. His age prevented him from taking an active part in the Texas Revolution.
