        The Shipwreck

      London - JohnSharpe, 1822. London - JohnSharpe, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An epic poem telling the final voyage of the merchant ship Britannia and her crew. In the original very decorative Regency binding. Includes numerous engravings throughout. William Falconer (bap. 1732, d. 1770), poet and lexicographer, was baptized in Edinburgh on 11 February 1732, which was possibly also the day of his birth. Nothing is known of Falconer's childhood except that he had some rudimentary schooling under one Webster before he went to sea as an apprentice, probably in the coal trade from Northumberland to London, about which he makes knowledgeable references in his poetry. Evidence for Falconer's seafaring life is to be adduced from his long poem The Shipwreck, which he claims to be autobiographical. If so, by 1749 he had completed his apprenticeship and had joined a British merchant ship in the Levant trade at Alexandria as second mate. The ship, homeward bound via Venice, was driven off course by a furious gale and was wrecked at Sunium in Greece. Falconer was one of three survivors. In 1751 he was in Edinburgh for his first publication, an ode on the death of Frederick, prince of Wales. His life for the next decade is obscure. He was almost certainly at sea in merchant ships, and there is evidence from The Shipwreck that he also served in the Royal Navy and may have been in Hawke's fleet at Quiberon Bay (November 1759). A surviving logbook records that in 1760 he was serving as mate on the Vestal frigate in the north Atlantic trade. DNBCondition: In an attractive calf-leather binding with gilt decoration. Externally generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Internally, firmly bound. The pages are bright and clean with onlysome mild spotting to the first and last few pages and the plates due to the paper used. Copperplate ink inscription to thefront endpaper.

Wesentliche Dokumente für Australiens politische, juristische und wirtschaftliche Entwicklung. Die Kosten für den Unterhalt der Kolonie waren hoch und die Kriminalitätsrate in England war gegen alle Erwartungen trotz der Deportation keineswegs gesunken. Als sich Beschwerden einer kleinen Gruppe wohlhabender Siedler gegen die Amtsführung des Gouverneurs Macquarie und dessen angebliche Bevorzugung von Ex-Sträflingen häuften, schickte man Bigge als "Commissioner". Er hielt sich 17 Monate in Australien auf, arbeitete sehr gründlich und lieferte detaillierte, äußerst aufschlussreiche Berichte. Obwohl Bigge am Status der Strafkolonie festhalten wollte, bewirkten seine Berichte letztlich das genaue Gegenteil. Er zeigte zwar Wege auf, die Kosten der Kolonie zu senken, doch um ein Gegengewicht gegen die Macquarie nahestehenden "Emancipists" zu schaffen, welche die Rechte entlassener Sträflinge stärken wollten, empfahl er die Entsendung wohlhabender Siedler der britischen Krone. Als die Berichte dem House of Commons vorgelegt wurden, war Gouverneur Macquarie bereits zurückgetreten. Die dennoch erfolgte Reform der legislativen Rechte trug wesentlich zur Eigenständigkeit der Kolonie bei. ** Bestellungen bis 14 Uhr versenden wir am selben Tag. - Schweizer Postkonto vorhanden. **

        The Life of Samuel Johnson

      London - T. Cadell, F. C. and J. Rivington, Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown etc., 1822. London - T. Cadell, F. C. and J. Rivington, Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown etc., 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. James Boswell's influential biography of Samuel Johnson. Complete in four volumes. The ninth edition, revised and augmented. The Life of Samuel Johnson is regarded as an important stage in the development of the modern genre of biography; many have claimed it as the greatest biography written in English. While Boswell's personal acquaintance with his subject only began in 1763, when Johnson was 54 years old, Boswell covered the entirety of Johnson's life by means of additional research. The biography takes many critical liberties with Johnson's life, as Boswell makes various changes to Johnson's quotations and even censors many comments. Regardless of these actions, modern biographers have found Boswell's biography as an important source of information. The work was popular among early audiences and with modern critics. With a portrait of Johnson to the frontispiece of volume I. Including two fold-out plates. Bookplate of Sir Baldwin Leighton to front pastedowns and his inscriptions to front blanks, dated 1825. Condition: In calf bindings. Externally, sound with wear to extremities and cracking to two rear joints. Only a small part of one leather spine label remains. However these could readily replaced at reasonable cost. Internally, firmly bound, bright with occasional foxing, especially to plates and first and last pages. Overall: GOOD.

        View of the State of Europe During the Middle Ages. In three volumes

      London - John Murray, 1822. London - John Murray, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Henry Hallam's brilliant examination of Medieval Europe. Third Edition, revised and corrected. Complete in three volumes. Henry Hallam (9 July 1777 21 January 1859) was an English historian. Hallam's earliest literary work was undertaken in connection with the Whig periodical, the Edinburgh Review, where his review of Walter Scott's Dryden attracted attention. His first major work, The View of the State of Europe during the Middle Ages, was produced in 1818, and was followed nine years later by the Constitutional History of England. In 18381839 appeared the Introduction to the Literature of Europe in the 15th, 16th and 17th Centuries. A volume of supplemental notes to his Middle Ages was published in 1843; these facts and dates represent nearly all of Hallam's career. Hallam's View of the State of Europe during the Middle Ages (2 vols. , 1818) surveyed the political development of the principal west European countries, paying particular attention to England's Anglo-Saxon and Norman constitutions. Though Hallam's reputation rests on his work as a historian, he made other contributions to Victorian intellectual life. Given the breadth of his interests, he was an obvious participant in the learned societies and literary clubs of the day. He became a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1801, and held the office of vice-president from 1824 to 1851; he was also elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1821. He helped found London University, and sat on its council from 1828 to 1831, as well as being a founder member of the Statistical Society, and serving as its treasurer from 1834 to 1840. During the 1830s he also worked with the sixth record commission, appointed in 1831 to organize the national records, and he assisted the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, an organization dedicated to popular education. DNBCondition: In full calf bindings. Externally generally sound although rubbed with one cracked joint, backstrip of volume III coming slightly away, some marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Bright but with light scattered spotting, heavier to the first and last few pages. Overall: GOOD.

        Les Martyrs Ou Le Triomphe

      Paris - Chez La Normant, 1822. Paris - Chez La Normant, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Franois-Ren, vicomte de Chateaubriand (4 September 1768 4 July 1848) was a French writer, politician, diplomat and historian. He is considered the founder of Romanticism in French literature. His descriptions of Nature and his analysis of emotion made him the model for a generation of Romantic writers, not only in France but also abroad. The notes Chateaubriand made on his travels would later form part of a prose epic, Les Martyrs, set during the Roman persecution of early Christianity. His notes also furnished a running account of the trip itself, published in 1811 as the Itinraire de Paris Jrusalem (Itinerary from Paris to Jerusalem). The Spanish stage of the journey would inspire a third novella, Les aventures du dernier Abencrage (The Adventures of the Last Abencerrage), which appeared in 1826. Includes an armorial bookplate to the front pastedown of each volume. Includes Volume I and II of a two volume set. Fourth Edition. In French. Condition: In a gilt and blind stamped cloth binding. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places with some marks. Internally, binding slightly tender with some pages working loose and some detatched but present (pages ix-xij of Volume I).

        Bracebridge Hall, or, The Humorists

      London - John Murray, 1822. London - John Murray, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A copy of this classic collection of intertwining stories by American novelist Washington Irving. Bracebridge Hall, or The Humorists, A Medley was written 1821, while he lived in England, and published in 1822. This episodic novel was originally published under his pseudonym Geoffrey Crayon. As this is a location-based series of character sketches, there are a number of individual plots. The tales centre on the occupants of an English manor (based on Aston Hall, near Birmingham, England, which was occupied by members of the Bracebridge family and which Irving visited). Each chapter documents the story of a different character. BAL suggests that all copies issued by Murray under the date 1822 be considered with equal primacy until evidence is provided to the contrary. First Englishedition, with 404pp. in volume two.

Bound in calf leather with gilt lettering. Volume two only. But an important original work. Would be $2000 complete. The General Stud Book was the original breed registry of the United Kingdom for horses.

In 1791, James Weatherby published Introduction to a General Stud Book, which was an attempt to collect pedigrees for the horses racing then and that had raced in the past. It was filled with errors and was not at all complete, but it was popular and led in 1793 to the first volume of the General Stud Book which had many more pedigrees and was more accurate.

        Historical Romances and Novels and Tales

      - Edinburgh - Archibald Constable and Co, 1822. - Edinburgh - Archibald Constable and Co, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Various volumes of Walter Scott's novels. With charming vignette titles. Five volumes of Historical Romances: volume II Ivanhoe, volume III The Monastery, volume V The Abbot, volume VI The Abbot, volume VII Kenilworth. Thirteen volumes of Novels and Tales: volume I Waverly, volume II Waverly, volume III Guy Mannering, volume IV Guy Mannering, volume V The Antiquary, volume VI The Antiquary, volume VIII Rob Roy, volume IX Black Dwarf, volume X Old Mortality, volume XI Old Mortality, volume XIV Heart of Mid-Lothian, volume XV Bride of Lammermuir, volume XVI Montrose. Archibald Constable (17741827). Walter Scott was initially one of Constable's customers in the business of scarce antiquarian books. It was the establishment of the Edinburgh Review in 1802 that made Constable a publisher who mattered. If the Review changed Constable into one of the most important publishers of the age, his association with Scott was intended to make him the most successful. Walter Scott was already established as the best-selling author of the day. Scott's Waverley saved Constable's floundering publishing business. Scott granted what was effectively a licence to publish an edition of 1000 copies of Waverley in return for receiving half profits. From this the publisher took half (and had to meet the costs of distribution and overheads from it), and paid the author half. By 1819 11,500 three-volume sets of Waverley had been sold, and the positive contribution to the publisher's income must have approached 3000 from that novel alone. Longer print runs on later novels, and higher prices increased their profitability. The first seven Waverley novels must have brought Archibald Constable & Co. over 20,000 by 1820. Scott well knew the value of his literary property, and he knew the power given to him by the wealth his novels generated. But he did not use this power to increase his share of the income. Constable needed Scott because Scott was the most successful writer of the age, and Constable promoted Scott by advertising heavily, and by keeping him in the public eye. Scott needed Constable because Constable was better at selling books than anyone else. The three great projects of Constable's first twenty years as a publisher were the Edinburgh Review, the Encyclopaedia Britannica, and Walter Scott.

      Boston: Printed and published by Joseph W. Ingraham, 1822.. Boston: Printed and published by Joseph W. Ingraham, 1822.. 50pp. Modern three-quarter morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Head of spine with near repair. Evenly tanned, spotting throughout. Very good. First and only northern edition (denoted "second edition" on the titlepage) of the primary contemporary account of the 1822 slave uprising in Charleston, South Carolina, written by James Hamilton, the Intendant (Mayor) of Charleston. This Boston edition was published the same year as the Charleston first edition, which was followed by two more Charleston editions in 1822. All are scarce. The demand for this text in Charleston is obvious, the fact that this edition was printed in far-away (abolitionist) Massachusetts is curious. Perhaps the harsh attitude evinced by the white South Carolinians in the text was meant to further stoke anti-slavery passions in the north, or perhaps the intention was to reinforce the threat of a bloodthirsty slave population. Led by Denmark Vesey, a former slave who had fought for his freedom, the planned uprising was exposed by one of the conspirators before it even began. Vesey and thirty- four other African-Americans were convicted of conspiracy to seize the city of Charleston and executed. Several others who were arrested and were found guilty were imprisoned or sent out of the state, while some were found not guilty and returned to their owners. The first thirty-two pages give a narrative how the plot was uncovered and an account of the trials. The appendix includes summaries of testimony, confessions, a table of the defendants, and the sentence of defendant Jack Pritchard, also known as "Gullah Jack." Vesey receives the lion's share of the blame in the conspiracy, driven by "a malignant hatred of whites, and inordinate lust of power and booty," though the leaders of the local African Methodist Church (several of the insurrectionists came from their ranks) also receive some blame. In a note "to the public" at the start of the text, Hamilton writes that he has, at the request Charleston City Council, brought together all the evidence of the plot and the account of its aftermath to show that "there can be no harm in the salutary inculcation of one lesson, among a certain [i.e. slave] portion of population, that there is nothing they are bad enough to do, that we are not powerful enough to punish." The Vesey uprising and the Nat Turner rebellion in Virginia in 1831 terrified white southerners, especially slaveowners, and led to more repressive treatment of slaves. SABIN 12032, 30013.

        The Pirate Fight (The Action of 9 November 1822)

      The National Intelligencer, Washington, D.C. 1822 - A complete four-page newspaper of 5 December 1822 recounts the battle between the American Schooner USS Alligator, commanded by Lieutenant William Allen, of the West Indies Squadron and three pirate ships, probably commanded by Diabolito, off the coast of Cuba on 9 November 1822. It occupies over 18" of front page column space and has a large, capitalized headline. The paper reports details of the encounter. At the time of battle, the pirate force had in its possesion five US merchant vessels. The Alligator, although out-gunned and out-manned, had an experienced crew, which had recently captured another ship after a bloody battle, and commander; Allen had also commanded the USS Argus when it engaged the HMS Pelican during the War of 1812. Allen and his crew manned launches from the Alligator in an attempt to board the principal pirate vessel, the Revenge, which fired upon the Americans with grape and roundshout. Rather than attempt to fight off the boarding attempt, the pirates abandoned the Revenge and fled to their other two ships. As Allen turned his boats to continue the attack, they came under withering fire from the pirates. In an attempt to rally his men, Allen stood up and was cut down by musket fire. The two remaining pirate ships fled the battle during the resulting confusing, leaving the Revenge and the five merchant ships the Alligator. Allen became an immediate naval hero, and his name was used as a rallying cry a year later when the navy defeated another pirate force and killed Diabolito in the same area The paper is toned but supple; generally clean with some staining at the upper right. The spine appears to have been neatly mended. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Buda, Typis et sumtibus typographiae Regiae Universitatis Hungaricae, 1822-1844. Tomus primus (...secundus). Folio. (I) Titelblatt mit Wappensignet, XII, 834 S.; (II) Titelblatt mit Wappensignet, 582 S. 2 zeitgenössische Einbände.. Ungarn und die Rezeption des Römischen Rechtes! Die Rezeption des römischen Rechts innerhalb Ungarns brachte zu Beginn des 16. Jahrhunderts eine Reihe von Gesetzbüchern und Entwürfen hervor, die jedoch meist von den Auseinandersetzungen zwischen den Ständen und dem Adel geprägt waren. So entstand das berühmte ungarische "Quadripartitum", ein Rechtsbuch, das als Gegenentwurf der Stände 1553 angefertigt wurde, aber nie Gesetzeskraft erhielt. Gleichwohl spielte es in der Rechtspraxis eine große Rolle. Diese vielseitige Gesetzegbung Ungarns ist in diesem Band vereint. OPUS TRIPARTITUM Juris Consuetudinarii inclyti Regni Hungariae partiumque eidem annexarum auctore Stephano de WERBÖCZ. DECRETA, Constitutiones et Articuli REGUM. Das "Dreigeteilte Buch des Gewohnheitsrechts des berühmten Königreichs Ungarn" Tripartitum opus iuris consuetudinarii" ist das bedeutendste rechtsgeschichtliche Denkmal Ungarns. Es entstand unter König Wladislaus II., der in einem Gesetz des Jahres 1498 die Sammlung der Gewohnheitsrechte des Reiches anordnete, und galt in Teilen bis 1945. Es ist das Werk von Stephan Werböczi (1458?-1541), Protonotar von Ungarn und Siebenbürgen. Das fertige Werk, das den Interessen des kleinen und mittleren Adels entgegenkam, wurde 1514 auf dem Reichstag auf dem Rakosfeld gebilligt. Das daraufhin ausgestellte königliche Privileg, das es zum Gesetz erklärte, wurde jedoch -wahrscheinlich auf Grund von Einsprüchen der Magnaten nach Schluß des Reichstages- nicht besiegelt und der Text nicht in der üblichen Weise an die Komitate und Städte versandt. Die Verhinderung der ordnungsgemäßen Publikation des Werkes war offenbar der Anlaß zu dessen Erstdruck im Jahre 1517 in Wien. So setzte es sich trotzdem durch und gewann, obwohl formal kein Gesetz, in der Gerichtspraxis doch faktisch die Wirkung eines Gesetzbuches.

        'Protocoll für Rechtliche Ansagen u. Klagen 1827 [bis 1837]'.

      . Folio (ca. 36.2 x 23.5 x 4 cm). Ca. 186 unpag. Bütten-Bll. (Wasserzeichen 'B. Z.'), praktisch vollständig beschrieben in deutscher Kurrentschrift (Tinte) von verschiedener Hand. HLdr. (fachmänn. restauriert, Block neu eingebunden, ORücken mit hs. Rückenschild, sowie Deckelschild remontiert, neue Kleisterpapier-Deckelbezüge u. Lederecken). Gesamthaft gutes, sehr gepflegtes Exemplar.. Die ersten 18 Bll. mit akkurat ausgeführten Rechnungsaufstellungen wohl pro 1822/1823. - Grösstenteils Botenbuch als handschriftliches Unikat, und damit eine volkskundlich sehr bedeutende, rechts- und sozialgeschichtlich reichhaltige Quelle von vielfältigem dokumentarischem Wert. Als struktureller Hintergrund ist u.a. zu beachten, dass die Bevölkerungs- und Siedlungsdichte in diesem ländlichen und weitestgehend von Landwirtschaft geprägten, auch hügeligen Gebiet im fraglichen Zeitraum gering war, was in Anbetracht der fehlenden Telekommunikation eine Ahnung von der Schwierigkeit des postunabhängigen Nachrichtenaustausches gibt. Es muss hier zudem offen bleiben, mit welchen Mitteln die Boten ihre sicher oft auch mühsamen Wege zurücklegten. - Bei dem Objekt handelt es sich um ein grosses, anfänglich (1822/1823) als Rechnungs- oder Kassabuch verwendetes Heft. Dieses dürfte dann für einige Jahre unbenutzt in einer Amtstube liegen geblieben sein, um danach als Textbuch mit den durch einen amtlichen Boten (Gerichtsboten, Amtsboten, Magistratsboten) zu übermittelnden Botschaften Verwendung zu finden. - Die meist kurz gefassten Botschaften oder 'rechtlichen Ansagen', die meist in einigen wenigen Zeilen formuliert sind für ein möglichst prägnantes mündliches Ausrichten des jeweiligen Auftrages, spiegeln Aspekte alltäglichen sozialen Zusammenlebens in einer ländlichen Region, veranschaulicht durch Mitteilungen mit einer gewissen juristischen Relevanz. Somit sind diese authentischer Ausdruck einer relativ spontanen, dennoch formalisierten amtlichen und auch gesellschaftlichen Verkehrsform. Da die tendenziell konfliktive Situation eine gewisse rechtliche Verbindlichkeit und Kontrolle verlangt, genügt die rein private Mitteilung nicht, werden doch in aller Regel mit der Ansage bestimmte Bedingungen und Konsequenzen verknüpft, die trotz der meist einfachen, um nicht zu sagen banalen Inhalte und Sachverhalte einen kontrollierten Ablauf erfordern. So z.B. "Johann Albiser [Albisser] im Dorf, lasst dem Johann Albiser Sohn (?) im Schlössli, rechtlich ansagen dass er die geflickten Schuh in Zeit & Tagen bey ihm abhollen [abholen] & bezahlen solle, ansonst er dieselben verkaufen (...) könne & möge" (etc.). - Ortsnamen sind nicht ganz einfach auszumachen. Häufig sind es regional- und lokalspezifische Bezeichnungen wie "in der Klausenmatt", "im Moos"; oft finden sich aber Gemeinden aus einem grossen, offenbar nicht ämterspezifischen Rayon wie Sempach, Willisau, Buttisholz, Littau, Gunzwyl, Roth [Root], Schötz, Ettiswyl, Nättenbach, Fischbach, Ruswil, etc. - Als typische einheimische Familiennamen seien erwähnt (u.v.a.): Bühler, Limacher, Richli, Grossmann, Fischer, Bättig, Marbach, Wyss, Baumgartner, Albisser, Egli, Amberg, Schwegler ("Schwägler"), Buholzer, Marty, usw. -- In der Zeit der Restauration und Regeneration (1814-1848) war der Kanton u.a. nach folgenden rechtlichen Institutionen strukturiert: "Nach der Verfassung vom 29. III. 1814 wurde der Kt. Luzern in 5 Ämter und 18 Gerichtskreise eingeteilt. Der Kleine oder Tägliche Rat war auch die höchste richterliche Gewalt [..]. [..] Die Aufsicht über die Zivil- und Kriminalgerichte führte der Justizrat. Als neues Institut erhielt jede Gemeinde ein Friedensgericht (Kompetenz bis auf 16 Fr.). An Stelle der aufgehobenen Amtsgerichte traten 18 Bezirksgerichte (Kompetenz bis 200 Fr. Streitsumme). Der Oberamtmann im Verein mit zwei Bezirksrichtern übte in polizeilichen Straffällen die Strafgerichtsbarkeit aus. Ähnliche Gerichtsbarkeit wie diese oberamtlichen Polizeigerichte hatten in Zivil- und Polizeifällen die Städte Sursee, Sempach und Willisau, sowie der Flecken Münster und endlich der Verwaltungsrat in der Stadt Luzern." (HBLS 4, p. 774). - Zu Beginn der Mediation (um 1803) teilte die Kantonsverfassung den Kanton in fünf Bezirke und 20 Quartiere ein. Neben dieser Einteilung für die Grossratswahlen schuf die kantonale Gesetzgebung für das Gerichts- und Verwaltungswesen die fünf Ämter Luzern, Entlebuch, Willisau, Sursee und Hochdorf, die mit einigen Grenzkorrekturen heute noch bestehen. Für die erste Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts lässt die noch rudimentäre kantonale Bevölkerungsstatistik keine sehr präzisen Angaben über Bevölkerung und Bevölkerungsdichte zu. Diese zeigen jedoch eine stetige Zunahme : 1810: ca. 102'000 Einwohner; 1817: ca. 109'000; 1829: ca. 116'500; 1837: ca. 124'500; 1850: ca. 133'000. (Vgl. GLS 3, 1905, p. 227 f.). "Dank der intensiveren Nutzung des Bodens und der damit verbundenen Verbesserung der Ernährungsbasis befand sich Luzern ab dem späten 18. Jh. in einer Phase des beschleunigten Bevölkerungswachstums. Ihr Höhepunkt lag in den ersten drei Jahrzehnten des 19. Jahrhunderts. Nach 1830 schwächte sich das Wachstum ab und ging im Gefolge der Wirtschaftskrise der späten 1840er Jahre in eine Periode der Stagnation über, in der das Bevölkerungswachstum deutlich unter dem schweizerischen Mittel lag. [..] Trotz des überproportionalen Wachstums der Stadt Luzern, die ab 1798 eine starke Zuwanderung verzeichnete, lebten 1850 noch fast 90% der Bevölkerung ausserhalb städtischer Siedlungen. [..] Um 1850 waren rund 70% der Luzerner in der Land- und Forstwirtschaft beschäftigt" (HLS, Lemma 'Luzern', passim). -- Luzern führte zwar 1803 eine Regiepost ein, doch scheint diese für die spezifischen Erfordernisse der 'rechtlichen Ansagen' noch nicht genügend geeignet gewesen zu sein. (Vgl. dazu K. Kronig, in: HLS, Lemma 'Post' od. 'Posta').
