        Technical drawing of Whaling equipment

      France,: circa, 1820.. Original drawing in ink on paper, 220 x 290 mm., ms. notations in ink and pencil; in fine condition, mounted. A finely-executed nineteenth-century technical drawing showing the tryworks and various implements involved in on-board whale processing. This drawing, with its various manuscript corrections, may have been a preliminary work for a French publication on whaling. It is drawn with the usual competence and finesse associated with French maritime art of this period.The upper section of the drawing shows different types of harpoon, lance, forks, ladles and strainers, and a sail-buoy used to mark whale carcasses. The lower section of the drawing shows the "tryworks" - the on-board furnace used for rendering whale blubber into oil. The tryworks was the most distinguishing feature of a whaleship, and consisted of two cast-iron trypots set into a brick furnace.At the time when this drawing was made, French whaling activity was mainly concentrated in the Pacific, where a formidable fleet operated even before any French colonies were established in the area.

      Washington City. 1820.. 220pp. 16mo. Contemporary three-quarter roan and marbled boards. Extremities worn, front board nearly detached but cords sound, one signature starting, foxing, some minor dampstaining. A sound copy. The fourth edition listed in Sabin, after the first edition of 1801. This copy is signed in pencil on the titlepage: "L[aFayette] S[abine] Foster's Washington Jany. 15 1831." Foster was a member of the Connecticut State Assembly for many years, and a member of the U.S. Senate from 1855 to 1867. After the death of President Lincoln, he became president pro-tem, and was presiding officer from April 5, 1865 to March 2, 1867. As a conservative republican, he was against repealing the Fugitive Slave Act, the Missouri Compromise, and the Lecompton constitution for Kansas. From 1878 to 1879 he served as a commissioner from Connecticut to settle the Connecticut-New York boundary dispute and buy Fisher's Island. Jefferson's MANUAL... was published shortly after he took office as President. The Virginia polymath sets forth rules of order and procedure - probably more dictating to the legislature than would be tolerated these days. SABIN 35887. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 1789.

        The Experimental Farmer: being strictures on various branches of husbandry and agriculture, drawn from a long series of practice in different parts of Great-Britain; containing Observations on planting and Preserving Young Trees, with an approved method of thinning them, to become timber. Likewise, Plans for Laying-out Land, on a five and four field system. Also, a new method to bring the most barren land into cultivation, for meadows and sheep walks: and a variety of other useful information in every branch of this art, absolutely necessary for every person, from the opulent farmer, to the proprietors of small pieces of land

      London: printed for Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, [N.d., but publisher's advertisements dated September 1820]. 8vo. (8 7/8 x 5 3/8 inches). Half- title, 1p. errata, 16pp. publisher's catalogue at end dated September 1820. Occasional wood-engraved decorations. Original boards, rebacked. First edition, second issue, of this charming work, full of fascinating practical information on land management at the turn of the 19th century This appears to be a second, remainder issue of the first edition: the dedication is dated 1806, the text has occasional watermark dates of 1804, but the title is a cancel issued by Sherwood, Neely & Jones who are also responsible for the publisher's catalogue at the end which is dated 1820. The first issue was dated 1806 and published by T. Ostell. No copies of the present issue are listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty years, and only one example of the 1807 issue. "Although this Work may not be written in fine stile and polished language ... it will be found to be clear and comprehensive ... suited as well to the understanding of the refined Gentleman as to that of the industrious farmer' (introduction, p.ix). The work is largely made up from many short entries under numerous sub-headings, and reads like a note-book of observations and calculations: a charmingly straight-forward work which nevertheless imparts a great deal of practical knowledge. For example, in the section on planting trees, Tibbs extols the financial benefits of growing trees for timber and in an innovative way combines the purely financial calculations of the costs and profits of planting an acre of land with practical instructions on how to plant and manage the plantation for the period needed to see a good profit (42 years). According to the introduction, Thomas Tibbs received his initial training in agriculture from his grandfather at Fidden Farm in Wiltshire, from there he moved to the Chiltern Hundreds where he farmed on his own land. He subsequently worked for Charles Hill, J. Sainsbury, and King George III's Flemish Farm before becoming Land Steward to Lord Grenville (the dedicatee) at Burnham in Buckinghamshire: this wide practical experience allowing him to write with authority on the numerous subjects he covers in this work.

        Memorial for Sunday School Girls; Being an Authentic Account of the Conversion, Experience, and Happy Deaths, or Twelve Girls

      Philadelphia: Published by the Sunday and Adult School Union, 1820 Original blue printed boards. . Small twelvemo. Woodcut frontispiece. Spine worn, early ownership inscription on title-page: "Sunday school of St. James's Church/Reward of merit Harriet Hentzel." A very good copy of a fragile book. This macabre book was very popular, going into several editions in a short period of time. The title was revised to include, in later editions, "thirteen girls," and "twenty three" and "twenty-five" children. The publishing history is uncertain, as some of the more compendious editions have dates earlier than 1820. The language of the girls seems precocious, with the seven-year-old Miss Lewis remarking, "My Jesus is coming; the chariot is coming...Good bye! I don't like to say so to my mother, she will be unhappy. Bury me with my sister and mother..." The author, a "minister of the Gospel," seems to revel in the early deaths of these young girls.

      Printed by J. Smith, and Sold by J. Deighton et al,, Cambridge: 1820 - Illustrated throughout with equations. Fold out plate @ rear of Babbage's piece. Herschel, along with Babbage & George Peacock [1791 - 1858], formed a triumvirate of early 19th C. British mathematicians of uncommon ability; for example, the three founded the Analytical Society, whose purpose was punned by Herschel as "The replacement of the dot-age of the University by the pure d-ism of the Continent." Herschel was elected to the Royal Society in 1813; Babbage followed suit 3 years later. Herschel, of course, subsequently distinguished himself with a career in Astronomy whereas Babbage is known to us today primarily for his work on his Analytical & Difference Engines, the conceptual forerunners to the modern computer. And while the authors, in their preface, readily acknowledge a debt to LaCroix's "TraitŽ ElŽmentaire de Calcul DiffŽrentiel et de Calcul IntŽgral" which they had translated 4 years earlier, this specific publication by the two men has a number of notable individual attributes: it is the first book authored by Herschel, and the subject matter of the work - the concept of finite differences - fascinated Baggage to the extent it was to occupy his attentions for many years hereafter, as it formed the intellectual underpinning for his ensuing research into mechanical calculation. And finally, & perhaps of even wider import, with this 1820 publication, it is acknowledged that Herschel & Babbage 'gave the first impulse to a mathematical revival in England.' [DNB]. Binding - Fine (period bookplate). Textblock - VG+ (light foxing, most noticeable on t.p.). Modern brown quarter calf with marbled paper boards. 8vo, in 4s. 8-1/2" x 5-1/4". 1st edition. iv, [2], 171, [1 (blank)]; [4], 42 pp. Divisional t.p. for Babbage's work.

        The Poetical Works of Walter Scott, Esq

      Edinburgh, London- Arch. Constable and Co., Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, and John Murray, 1820 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A finely bound twelve volume set of The Poetical Works of Walter Scott, Esq. Bound in leather with gilt lettering and blindstamped decoration. Twelve Volumes, complete. Rebound with the original boards, except Volume X. A letter concerning this set of Walter Scott, from Henry Babington Smith, dated May 1923,is contained herewith. There is an ink inscription on the front blank of Volume 1 from Mary Babington, dated 1820. With Henry Prior's bookseller label on the front pastedown of Volumes I-IX, and XI-XII. Volume X is bound by Maltbys of Oxford. Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet, 1771 1832, was a prolific Scottish historical novelist and poet popular throughout Europe during his time and is considered by some as responsible for inventing the modern historical novel. After Scott had founded a printing press, his poetry, beginning with The Lay of the Last Minstrel brought him fame. He published a number of other poems over the next ten years, including the popular The Lady of the Lake. Whilst Scott is considerably more popular as an author, his poetry is not to be overlooked. Sir Henry Babington Smith GBE CH KCB CSI, 1863 1923, was a senior British civil servant. He was educated at Eton College and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he read classics. Amongst his numerous positions, Babington Smith became principal private secretary to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, private secretary to Lord Elgin on his appointment as Viceroy of India, and Treasury representative in the South African War. In 1900 he became British representative on the Council of Administration of the Ottoman Public Debt, becoming its chairman in 1901. In 1903 he returned home to become secretary to the General Post Office. In 1909 he became president of the National Bank of Turkey. The First World War saw him holding a variety of posts connected with finance, including deputy governor of the British Trade Corporation. In 1918 he accompanied Lord Reading to the United States as Assistant Commissioner and Minister Plenipotentiary. After the war, he chaired the Indian Finance and Currency Committee and the Railway Amalgamation Tribunal in 1921. He was appointed a director of the Bank of England in 1920. Smith was appointed Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire (GBE) in the 1920 civilian war honours for his services in the United States. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. The front hinge of volume 1 is slightly strained. There is mild wear to the extremities, including mild bumping and rubbing, with some discolouration to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright, with only very slight browning to the page edges, and occasional spotting, becoming most prominent to the first and last few pages. Overall the condition is very good..

        Arabia, Egypt, Abyssinia, Red Sea &c

      Edinburgh, c. 1820. Copper engraving, 48 x 53 cms, original hand-colour, from Thomson’s ‘New General Atlas’; major caravan routes are marked. Thomson made his fortune through his extremely successful 'New General Atlas', but in the 1820s he bankrupted himself, twice (in the process of creating his large-scale 'Atlas of Scotland' in a burst of patriotic pride) and he disappears from the historical record. Thomson's maps are characteristic of the Edinburgh school of cartography which flourished at the beginning of the nineteenth-century and is noted for its clarity and elegance; other exponents include John Cary and John Pinkerton.

        Marchand de Paniers Original Nineteenth Century Watercolor of French Tradesman

      British Isles : c. 1820. Archivally framed in Ivory rag matting with neo-classical gilt moulding. Fine condition A scarce and charming original early nineteenth century watercolor painting on wove paper. (7 x 7.25 inches, 177 x 186 mm.) The painting has been tipped onto ecru wove album paper of the period, as was the custom, yet the watercolors remain vibrant and rich. Although the origin of this lovely painting is unknown, a refined and experienced hand clearly created this detailed and elegant composition. The details are fine; both the tones and shading display the painter's astute understanding of composition and perspective. The artist no doubt was an armchair or "parlor" watercolorist, likely an aristocratic gentlewoman or man who sought inspiration from the vast array of published volumes, complete with engraved plates, of the trades, and costumes of then exotic regions of the globe, thus the inspiration seems apparent.

Bland medlemmarna återfanns J. A. Hazelius och hans bröder, A. A. Afzelius, P. D. A. Atterbom, J. Börjesson, C. F. Dahlgren och A. Fryxell. "Handlingar till upplysning i Manhemsförbundets historia" riktar sig till en större publik. Almquist redogör för de olika graderna i förbundets organisation och deras symbolik och mystik. Kritik kom från det antiromantiska, konservativa lägret och succén som han hoppats på uteblev. Trycket är en omarbetning av det förslag till förbundet som Almquist presenterade 1816. Den inre titeln lyder: "Förslag till Manhems-förbundets organismus; till förbundets pröfning inlemnadt år 1816 af en dess medlem; öfversedt och utveckladt."

        Limited edition replica of the Sydney Punchbowl in the Mitchell Library, State Library of New South Wales

      Jingdezhen, China, for,: Hordern House, Sydney,, 2013.. Porcelain bowl, 450 mm. diameter, 170 mm height; hand-painted with a panoramic scene of Sydney Cove circa 1820 around the outside and a group of Aboriginal figures on the inside; finished with exquisite floral and gilded banding. The Sydney Punchbowl: Hordern House announce the creation of a replica of the precious original Chinese bowl in the collection of the State Library of New South Wales.Only twenty-five examples will be available for sale. A further three examples have been reserved for presentation: to Her Excellency the Governor of New South Wales for Government House, Sydney; to the State Library of New South Wales; and to the Chinese government.One of the most fascinating of all the great rarities and unique treasures held in the State Library of New South Wales is the so-called Sydney Punchbowl, a fine large porcelain bowl manufactured in China around 1820, decorated with a panoramic scene of Sydney Cove around the outside and a group of Aboriginal figures on the inside, and finished with exquisite floral and gilded banding.The bowl still has many secrets which are part of its allure and charm: why was it made; who was its first owner; who was it given to; whose are the initials which appear in gold on the side; why did it reappear in London in the early twentieth century; what is its relationship to the similar but not identical bowl (with a different view of Sydney) that surfaced some years ago in America and is now in the Australian National Maritime Museum... These are all questions for which art-historians have long sought answers and which continue to tantalise them. At the same time the bowl raises interesting points about colonial society and its aspirations: how the colony wished to be seen by a distant audience, and about early trading links between Australia and China and the Chinese market.In late 2013 the replica bowl will be launched at the State Library. Five years in the planning and creation, the replica bowls have been made for Sydney rare book dealers Hordern House by Chinese craftsmen faithfully using traditional methods in the so- called "porcelain city" of Jingdezhen (Ching-te-Chen). Numerous prototype bowls have travelled between Sydney and Jingdezhen until the design, shape and hand-painted colours and gilding have become as true and accurate a representation of the unique and beautiful original as it is possible to be.Experts within the Library, including Elizabeth Ellis, Paul Brunton, and current Mitchell Librarian, Richard Neville, have long had a keen interest in the bowl and its background. Elizabeth Ellis OAM, former Mitchell Librarian and now an emeritus curator of the Library, has already written about the bowl, most recently in an article published in 2013 in Australiana, the journal of the Australiana Society. She has now developed this as a study to accompany the bowl, thus adding important explanatory and contextual information. This text has been finely produced as a monograph in a special limited edition to accompany each of the replica bowls; a version of the work has been produced separately for public sale and is available from Hordern House directly or from the Library Shop at the State Library of New South Wales.Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir AC CVO, Governor of New South Wales, has graciously agreed to launch the Sydney Punchbowl Replica in the course of a reception at the State Library of New South Wales on Tuesday 22 October.

        Proof That Pres. Monroe Received the Counsel of Thomas Jefferson During the Missouri Crisis of 1820, But Ignored It

      Proof That Pres. Monroe Received the Counsel of Thomas Jefferson During the Missouri Crisis of 1820, But Ignored It.& And Jefferson was right, correctly warning that disunion and war could result from dividing the country geographically, free state and slave state& & The first great crisis over slavery occurred when Missouri requested to be admitted to the Union as a slave state in 1819. The number of slave and free states was then balanced at 11 each, and admission would upset that balance. Both north and south staked out positions based on sectionalism, rather than nationalism, the first time this had occurred. The debates in Congress were intense. With so many territories in the west still thinly settled or not settled at all (and the certainty that additional requests for admission would be presented as these territories were populated and qualified for statehood), it was clear that this divisive issue could recur again and again. Congress thus sought to settle the question once and for all by admitting Missouri as a slave state and Maine as a free one, and more importantly, by drawing a line below which slavery would be permitted in the territories and above which it would be forbidden. The Missouri Compromise appeared to most to be a perfect solution, but some were troubled by the implications of drawing a physical line between north and south, and thereby creating defined sections where once there was a union. In March, 1820, Jefferson received word of the details of the Compromise essentially agreed upon in Congress. He was appalled by the very idea of reducing a political disagreement to geographical terms. On April 5, 1820, he wrote to Mark Hill, a Maine congressman, that "The idea of a geographical line, once suggested, will brood in the minds of all those who prefer the gratification of their ungovernable passions to the peace and union of their country." We offer a letter that proves that Pres. Monroe was shown this exact letter to Hill (and was thus aware of Jefferson's opposition to the Missouri Compromise); in fact it is the very cover letter with which Monroe returned the Jefferson letter to Hill. & & Autograph Letter Signed as President to Mark Hill, April 13, 1820. "Mr. Monroe has perused Mr. Jefferson's letter with pleasure, which he now returns to Mr. Hill, with thanks for his attention." Just days later, Jefferson wrote the famous letter saying that the Missouri question was a "firebell in the night," and promised to be the knell of the Union. Despite Jefferson's opposition, Monroe felt that he had no choice but to sign the Missouri Compromise. Ultimately Jefferson proved to be correct; dividing the nation geographically seemed to freeze attitudes and actions along sectional lines, and was the first step to Civil War. See Jefferson and His Time by Malone for a full discussion.

Occasional foxing marks as usual, and a slight damp stain occasionally affecting the lower margin of the plates, though the images are unaffected. An attractive copy of this, now very scarce, item. Fine early 19th century view book and descriptive guide of the town and harbour of Margate, here described in accurate detail, giving probably the best record of the town at this time. Steam boats with hordes of visitors are depicted, and the thoroughfares and bathing establishments of the town, as well as more prosaic edifices such Cobb's Brewery and The Prevention Post, windmills, etc., etc. A charming guide which depicts the town in words and fine engraved views.
