The Irish Record Commission (1810-1830) was established as a branch of the British Record Commission as a result of a letter from Lord Redesdale, Lord Chancellor for Ireland, to Lord Hardwicke, Lord Leiutenant, in March 1806. The exceptionally extensive and ancient records of Ireland were kept in poor, often damp conditions in Dublin Castle, without proper indexing, and it was recommended that something be done to prevent them deteriorating any further. This report was ordered by the House of Lords from the Commons, detailing the progress of the Commission to date.

        Essai sur la théorie des proportions chimiques et sur l'influence chimique de l'électricité

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1819, in 8°, de XVI-190pp. 1f. 120pp. 1f. de table, demi-basane brune époque, dos lisse orné, tr. marbrées, rousseurs. Première édition française de cet ouvrage majeur du célèbre chimiste suédois père de la notation du poids atomique des éléments. Traduit du suédois, l'ouvrage fut revu et publié par l'auteur lors de son séjour à Paris. Plus de la moitié de l'ouvrage est constitué par les tables "des poids de l'atome de la plupart des substances inorganiques". La notation créée par Berzélius repose sur la polarité électrique des corps simples, et cette représentation fut universellement adoptée, et malgré les progrès de la chimie organique, le principe de cette notation n'a jamais été abandonné. Comme Lavoisier avait créé une nomenclature universelle, Berzélius a créé une écriture chimique universelle, toutefois l'accord sur un système de poids atomiques ne se fit qu'un demi-siècle plus tard. Le système fut réformé par Gerhardt et Laurent, et dura jusqu'à l'exposé de la classification périodique des éléments par Mendeleïev en 1869. ¶ Daumas Hist. science p.953 & sq. - DS.B.

With publisher's twelve-page advertisement leaflet inserted at the end of volume one. Complete with fourteen engravings, thirteen of which are hand coloured. The illustrations include a folding map and one fold-out plate. The rare 'Entire New Map' is present, being a particularly large hand-coloured folding plate (ten folds) in the centre of volume 1. This is not called for within the list of plates but is noted on the title page. An uncut copy, bound in original drab boards with a later paper respine to style. Internally clean, but for a couple of small institutional stamps, owner name to pastedown, three plates brittle with neat marginal repairs, some pge bolts unopened, fragile boards with some chipping and edgewear.

Mountstuart Elphinstone, a founder of British India, was appointed the first British envoy to the court of Kabul (1808) and became the Governor of Bombay (now Mumbai) in 181. He twice refused appointment as Governor-General of India, preferring to finish his two-volume work The History of India (1841). This title is considered a landmark text on Afghanistan and the Afghans and his account influenced British policy until the 1840s. Ephinstone College at the University of Mumbai was named in his honour and his statue stands in St Paul's Cathedral. Abbey Travel 504; Howgego II, E10.

        Tour of the Grand Junction, Illustrated in a Series of Engravings; With an Historical and Topographical Description of those Parts of the Counties of Middlesex, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, and Northamptonshire, Through which the Canal passes.

      London: Printed for J. Hassell, 1819. 8vo, contemporary olive-green morocco, gilt rules, decorations and lettering, a.e.g. Twenty-four hand-colored aquatint plates drawn and engraved by Hassell. ¶ The Grand Junction Canal was designed to facilitate water transport from Oxford Canal to London, in place of the uncertain Thames River. The canal was opened in 1800 and pretty well completed in 1805, and its 93 miles of waterway, with two long tunnels, did greatly improve cargo shipping. It is now, like all the canals of England, used almost entirely for pleasure cruising. John Hassell (died 1825) wrote and illustrated numerous art-instruction and topographical works, of which this is one of the most appealing, due to the beauty of the countryside through which the canal passed. In his Preface Hassell declares that the Grand Junction "embraces a variety far exceeding that afforded by many rivers, as combining all the beauties of landscape--the elegance and splendor of the mansion and the villa--and the venerable remains of antiquity." Binding slightly rubbed; fine copy.

      London Printed for J Hassell, 27, Richard Street, Islington; and sold by all book sellers 1819 First Edition. 8vo: viii,147,[5] pp, with hand-colored frontispiece and 23 full-page hand-colored plates "of great topographical interest" (Hardie; according to Abbey, some copies were issued uncolored). Full period black straight-grain morocco, spine elaborately tooled gilt in six compartments, boards tooled in blind and gilt, turn-ins gilt, all edges gilt. A Very Good or better copy, the plates clean and bright, with sporadic, mostly marginal (occasionally heavy) foxing to text. Provenance: book plate to front paste down of Howard Calhoun Davidson (1890-1984), U. S. Air Force Major General and veteran of both World Wars. Abbey, Scenery, 30. Tooley 252. Martin Hardie, pp. 140-141. Prideaux, p. 272. Very Good + The Grand Junction Canal's 93 miles of waterway, from Braunston in Northhamptonshire to the River Thames at Brentford, was designed to facilitate water transport to London as an alternative to the uncertain Thames. By 1790, an extensive network of canals was in place in the Midlands, but the only route to London was via the Oxford Canal to the Thames, then down the river to the capital. The River Thames, particularly its upper reaches, suffered from shallow sections and shortages of water leading to delays at locks. The mainline (there were numerous branches) of the Grand Junction Canal, built between 1793 and 1805, by-passed the upper Thames and shortened the journey to London. Hassell, a watercolorist and engraver, first appeared as an exhibitor at the Royal Academy in 1789, with a "View of Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain."

A LANDMARK WORK IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF DISEASES OF THE LUNGS AND HEART, ANNOUNCING THE INVENTION OF THE STETHOSCOPE. As head physican at the Necker Hospital in Paris, Laennec's investigations of emphysema, tuberculosis, and other chest diseases inspired him to improvise a technological innovation that would revolutionize physical diagnosis. Although auscultation had been known since the days of Hippocrates, and diagnostic percussion of the chest had most recently been advocated by Auenbruegger, these methods were often inconvenient and were subject to frequent misinterpretation. Experimentation with a rolled paper cylinder led Laennec to invent a more reliable diagnostic instrument, a foot-long tube of cedar wood, which amplified the sounds of his patients' hearts and lungs. Even more impressive than his invention of this brilliantly simple instrument, however, were the uses Laennec made of it: through methodical observation he taught himself the significance of the various sounds produced by the movements of the heart and lungs and drew up a clear and detailed classification system correlating.

Contemporary full red straight-grained morocco, covers tooled in gilt and blind with wide double-fillet border compartments and Greek key and feather and trefoil rolls, corner compartments stamped with gilt diamond and floral tool, smooth spine divided into five compartments, lettered in one, the rest gilt with small floral tools, board edges and turn-ins gilt with Greek key and floral rolls, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Some spotting and light staining to text, else fine, in custom red cloth slipcase and chemise. First edition of parts I-V. iv, [5]-94; [97]-169, [1]; [171]-210, 203-242; [243]-301, [1], [ii], [303]-335, [1]; [337]-443, [1] pp., with two examples of printed slip warning against unauthorized printings tipped-in to No. II. 8vo. Early American Binding by John Roulstone. A fine early American morocco extra binding by the Boston bookbinder John Roulstone (c. 1777-1826, fl. 1802-1825). Roulstone was one of only four early American binders to sign his bindings (Lightbody, Legge, and Potter the others), and his commission work for the Harvard College Library, including one signed binding, has greatly facilitated the identification of his bindings (cf. French, "John Roulstone's Harvard Bindings," Bookbinding in Early America). In the present example, which is unsigned, the cover border tooling (Greek key and feather) and cornerpieces match that on Roulstone's signed binding of a syllabus of the lectures of Francis Nicholls presented to Harvard by Ward Nicholas Boylston (ibid, p. 91, fig. 30). French suggests that Roulstone apprenticed, or was at least influenced, by English émigré and fellow Boston bookbinder Henry Bilson Legge. The theory would account for a similarity of design and tooling and the pronounced "Englishness" of Roulstone's work. Roulstone was active for more than twenty years and achieved a certain level of success. In addition to his work for Harvard, he bound for the Boston Athenæum and a number of private citizens, and when he died in 1826 of consumption, his estate was valued at $13,000. French praises Roulstone as "well known in his community and very likely the best binder of his time and place" (p. 117). The present example, which includes first editions of parts I-V of Washington Irving's Sketch Book (a further two parts were later published in 1820), is a fine example of Roulstone's "extra binding" work - full straight-grained morocco, richly tooled in gilt, with board edges and turn-ins gilt, all edges gilt, and marbled endpapers. It was formerly in the American binding collection of Michael Papantonio, who mentions this book specifically in his "The Dealer as Collector": "About 1940 I sold a copy of Washington Irving's Sketchbook bound in red morocco by John Roulstone. I felt that I could not afford to keep it. In the early 1950s I was called in to look at a collection in a New York apartment, and among the books there was the Sketchbook. Needless to say it became part of my collection." All but six of Papantonio's early American bindings are now at the American Antiquarian Society. The Sketchbook was purchased privately in 1999 from Ximenes, which had been instrumental in selling off the remains of Papantonio's collection after his death. The binding is decorated with the following tools, as identified by French. Rolls: T87 (Greek key and feather), T95 (trefoil and bead), T86 (circle and star), T100 (cemicircle) Stamps: T118 (diamond and flower). Papantonio, Early American Bindings 37; BAL 10106; Blackburn, 15-23 (CHECK). Provenance: Norris Marshall Jones (letterpress bookplate); Horatio Robinson (presentation inscription, "Presented to Horatio Robinson from his friend, Norris Marshall Jones. May 12th 1820"); Richard Montgomery Gilchrist Potter (red morocco booklabel); Michael Papantonio (Early American Bookbindings, no. 37)

        Lettre autographe (de la main de son secrétaire) signée par Cambacérès en date de Bruxelles le 21 mars 1819, et adressée au jurisconsulte et avocat Dejoly à Paris

      Bruxelles, le 21 mars, 1819, in 8°, de 2pp., - On y joint: Une belle lettre calligraphiée de l'avocat Dejoly adresse au Prince archichancelier Cambacérès, en date du 6 juin 1812, pour obtenir un droit de reconnaissance de noblesse pour un citoyen Belge néerlandais, député d'Issel-Supérieur dans la Hollande annexée, en vertu du décret impérial du 26 août 1811. Datée de Paris le 6 juin 1812, de 2 pp. in folio avec cachet, et note pour suite au Procureur Général de la main de Cambacérès en marge, avec sa signature. Il s'agit d'une mise au point avec Deloly de la contestation entreprise par le Duc de Cambacérès contre le Duc d'Orléans. Après les Cent jours, Cambacérès est en effet en exil en Belgique. La seconde Restauration se montra sévère pour Cambacérès: il perd ses dotations, doit s'exiler comme régicide, et il est exclu de l'Académie française. Il se rend à Bruxelles, où il descend à l'hôtel Wellington, avec Lavollée et deux valets de chambre, puis à Amsterdam. En 1818, il est autorisé à rentrer en France. Dans cette lettre, il confirme à Dejoly que Mr Bonnet se charge de sa défense, demande la raison qui fait que cette affaire traîne en longueur, et voudrait pouvoir clore ce dossier avant son retour à Paris. Demande à Dejoly de tenir Mr. Thibon au courant du dossier, et adresse à Dejoly les compliments de Mr. Lavollée (en exil avec lui). Cambacérès, initié à Montpellier, avant la Révolution, avait franchi les grades maçonniques successifs et exerça de 1805 à 1814, les fonctions de Grand-Maître adjoint du Grand-Orient de France. Etienne-Louis-Hector Dejoly (1756-1837) avocat au Parlement de Paris, plaida pour Cagliostro dans l'affaire du collier de la Reine. Enrichi par son mariage, la Révolution assura sa fortune politique. Il reprit ses fonctions d'avocat sous le Directoire, puis devint avocat au Conseil d'Etat. En maçonnerie il fut Garde des sceaux de la Gde Loge d'Administration, 33e membre du Sup. Conseil et Officier d'honneur du Gd Consistoire des Rites et du Grand Orient. ¶ Ligou Dict. de la F.M. p.190 & 348

        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. 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. 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.

        Letters written during a ten years’ residence at the court of Tripoli; published from the originals in the possession of the family of the Late Richard Tully, Esq., The British Consul. Comprising authentic memoirs and anecdotes of the reigning Bashaw, his family, and other persons of distinction; also an account of the domestic manners of the Moors, Arabs, and Turks

      Two volumes. Third edition. Printed for Henry Colburn, Conduit Street. London. 1819. 8vo. xv, 375, 396pp. 7 hand coloured aquatint plates, 1 folding map. Full calf by E. Pover, Chester, raised banding to spines, gilt ornaments and spine rules, gilt ornament and blind stamping ornamentation to boards. Gauffered in gilt to edges. Inner gilt dentelles. Spines relaid. Marbled endpapers, (fep to vol I with some areas of surface loss). All edges marbled. Some offsetting of plates. Small corner torn II,131. Silk book markers. Bookplate of Hugh, Duke of Westminster, Eaton, 1884. Richard Tully was the British Consul at Tripoli from 1783 to 1793, and, according to the preface of the first edition, these letters were written by his sister; however, the preface to this edition states that Tully's sister-in-law was the author. The author's identity has always been a mystery: it is unlikely that Richard Tully's sister-in-law would be named Miss Tully, and there is no record of a sister, nor of another family member residing in Tripoli. The final entry is dated April 30, 1795, Gibraltar. "It reads: Since you must have had my letters with the journal of Tripoli..." Louisa Maria Tully (daughter of Richard Tully) married Alexander Simpson on 19 March 1795 in Gibraltar. Her sister, Anne, married Gaspar Gomez de la Serna Perez de Beas, having four children before his death in 1808, residing in Minorca. Both daughters were fluent in Arabic, both were intimate with the court of Triploi, regarded as daughters of the Court. Mrs Tully is referred to in the third person so she may be discounted as the author. The first person author[s] are variably "we" or "I". Byron admitted plagiarism "by the way, much of the description of the furniture, in Canto Third, is Taken from Tully's Tripoli (pray note this)… Remember I never meant to conceal this at all." Provenance: From the library of Hugh, Duke of Westminster, with his bookplate: Eaton 1884. Hugh Lupus Grosvenor, 1st Duke of Westminster KG, PC, JP (1825-1899) English landowner, politician and racehorse owner. He appointed Alfred Waterhouse to design the new hall at Eaton in 1870. The redesigned library was 90 feet (27m) long. The work took 12 years to complete, and cost £803,000 (£73 million today) At his death he was considered the richest man in Britain.

        Plan von Trier und seinen Umgebungen.

      - Kupferstich-Karte von C. Mare bei Quednow, datiert Berlin 1819, koloriert. Ca. 29,5 x 40 cm. Karte der engeren Umgebung von Trier, erstellt nur vier Jahre nachdem die Stadt preußisch und Teil der Rheinprovinz geworden war. Die Karte ist in etwa gewestet und reicht von Igel/Wasserliesch und Konz bis nach Ruwer. Im Osten sind Zewen, Euren, Sirzenich und Lorich eingezeichnet, im Westen reicht sie bis Olewig, umfasst dann aber das Ruwertal von Ruwer über Mertesdorf und Kasel bis Waldrach. Der Charakter eines Planes (wie der Titel ja verheißt) wird in der Präzision der Ortsdarstellungen deutlich, die offenbar wenn nicht parzellen-, dann wenigstens strassengenau sind und die bestehende Bebauung akkurat verzeichnen. Unterhalb des Titel findet sich folgende Angabe "Gestochen v. Carl Mare Prof. u. Mitgl. d. Acad. z. Berlin 1819". Als Maßstab dienen Preußische Ruten. Das seltene Blatt erschien 1820 in Carl Friedrich Quednows "Beschreibung der Alterthümer in Trier und dessen Umgebungen aus der gallisch-belgischen und roemischen Periode".
