        A Grammar of the High Dialect of the Tamil Language, termed Shen-Tamil: to which is Added an Introduction to Tamil Poetry. Translated from the original Latin, by Benjamin Guy Babington. Madras, The College Press, 1822.

      1822 1822 - 4to. Pp. (ii), xii, 117 + 5 content. Wide margins. Contemporary calf, blindstamped border on the covers, spine gilt with red title label, rubbed. Library markings on front endpapers. Some leaves with small marginal wormholes (no text loss). Occasionally some light staining. Rare first printed edition, translated into English from the original Latin completed in manuscript form about 100 years earlier but not printed at that time. Beschi was born in Italy in 1680 but spent most of his life as a missionary in India. He was the founder of the Madura mission and became one of the earliest and most distinguished pioneers in the field of Tamil studies. He composed several linguistic works but is perhaps best known as a Tamil poet. He produced a grammar of Low Tamil (the common dialect) in Latin which was printed at Tranquebar in 1728. The present grammar of Shen-Tamil (the high dialect) was composed the following year but for an unknown reason never printed. This English version was based on a collation of texts, transcriptions and copies. It remains a pioneering study of an ancient and complex language by a sensitive and meticulous scholar and a talented translator. The translator Benjamin Guy Babington was an English physician and Oriental scholar who spent about ten years in India. Vater p. 240. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Medicinalium observationum exempla rara. Accessere & alia quaedam, quorum elenchum pagina post praefationem exhibet.Leiden, Christoffel Plantin, 1585. Small 8vo (16 x 10 cm). With Plantin's woodcut compasses device on the title-page. Contemporary reversed parchment (made from the lower part of a leaf from a 16th-century legal document in German, with a reference to Basel).

      BMN I, p. 184; Durling 1180; Voet 1094; USTC 422345; cf. Wellcome 1822. Second edition, adding a chapter with an additional case study, and only Plantin edition of an important collection of medical case studies and other medical observations by the great botanist Rembert Dodoens. Dodoens took many from his own medical practice and also edited and annotated examples by his predecessors: Taranta (d. 1418), Benivieni (published 1507) and Cornax (1507-1564). He also added his own hierarchical overview of physiology following Galenus. While several highly regarded scholars published collections of this sort, they are aimed largely at the general public and tend to present bizarre cases that hold the reader's attention. By writing in Latin Dodoens brought his book to an international educated public. Such works also try to demonstrate the value of classical Galenic medical theories, while using new observations to correct and expand them in areas where they had proved weak. This helped defend the status of the medical academic in a world where many healers practiced without academic training, whether experienced herbalists or outright charlatans.With contemporary owner's inscriptions. A few quires slightly browned, but the book is still in very good condition. The binding shows a few stains and most of the ties are lost, but it is still good.

        First report of the Directors of the School of Arts of Edinburgh, for the education of mechanics in such branches of physical science as are of practical application in their several trades.

      Edinburgh: printed by George Ramsay and Co. May 1822 - 8vo., (2) + 50pp., early 19th century half calf over marbled boards, neatly rebacked and labelled, with the armorial bookplate of Ferguson of Raith on front pastedown.> A fine copy. First edition of the first report: rare. Goldsmiths 23497. A foundation document in the origins of Heriot-Watt University which sprang organically, as it were, from this, the world's first Mechanics Institute. The first Directors of the Edinburgh School of Arts included the inspirational Leonard Horner, together with such heavyweights as David Brewster, James Jardine, James Pillans, William Playfair, and James Skene. Horner was the secretary and it is likely that it was he who wrote the present report. The mission statement incorporated in this first report is worth quoting: 'The School of Arts of Edinburgh took its origin from an accidental conversation in the shop of Mr. Bryson, watchmaker, in March 1821. To a question, whether young men brought up in the trade of watch making received any mathematical education, Mr. Bryson replied, that it is seldom, if ever, the case; that they daily experience the effects of the want of this instruction, but the expence and the usual hours of masters who teach mathematics, put it out of the power of working tradesmen to obtain it. It was suggested, that it might be very possible to devise some plan by which such branches of science as would be useful to mechanics in the exercise of their trade, might be taught at convenient hours, and at an expence which would be within their reach; for an institution of this description had long existed at Glasgow, and had been attended with very beneficial effects'. And the Prospectus accordingly declared that 'This Association [i.e. 'School of Arts, for the better Education of the Mechanics of Edinburgh'] has been formed for the purpose of enabling industrious tradesmen to become acquainted with such of the principles of mechanics, chemistry, and other branches of science, as are of practical application in their several trades, that they may possess a more thorough knowledge of their business, acquire a greater degree of skill in the practice of it, and be led to improvement with a greater security of support .'. The Report> provides a full descriptive account of the staff and students, the syllabuses of the various courses, and, of course, a list of benefactors. Among these was our Robert Ferguson of Raith who is recorded as having donated one guinea. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [MANUSCRIPT] A List of 18 Male Convicts (Boys) discharged from the Bellerophon Hulk at Sheerness for New South Wales by the Ship Lady East this 21st October 1824.

      [Drop title]. Folio, [4] pp, manuscript in ink on laid paper watermarked Charles Wise 1822 with Britannia surmounted by crown; signed at the foot of the third page by the Bellerophon's Commander, Samuel Owen; the list of prisoner profiles, set out in tabular form, contains Commander Owen's remarks on the conduct and demeanour of each of the boys, whose ages range from 16 to 18; the fourth page is endorsed 'Bellerophon'; contrary to the report's title, these boys were transported on the Lady East not to New South Wales but to Van Diemen's Land, arriving at Hobart Town on 9 April 1825; original folds, mild foxing, otherwise clean and legible. HMS Bellerophon, a famous ship which had played a conspicuous part in both the Battle of the Nile and the Battle of the Trafalgar, was used as a prison hulk for boys between 1823 and 1825. It was moored off Sheerness, a town located at the mouth of the River Medway in Kent. The Bellerophon accomodated around 60 boys between the ages of 9 and 18. As her layout meant there was no space for workshops, it was decided at the end of 1825 to transfer the boys to the Euryalus, a hulk which had been specially fitted for such a purpose. For each of the 18 boys listed in this report, Commander Samuel Owen supplies name, age, offence, place of conviction, occupation, remarks about conduct while under his supervision, and a gaoler's report on previous behaviour. It is at the same time a fascinating and depressing document, a starkly human eyewitness record of life on a prison hulk that is also an indictment of the British penal and class systems. Reading it, we keenly feel the plight of these young men helplessly caught in the cycle of poverty and crime: John Bird (18); Thomas Gibson (17); Charles Goulding (18); Robert Bainbridge (17); Charles Lewis (16); Goodman Solomon (17); William Tobin (17); William Martin (17); William Bumbie (16); Ephraim Digby (18); Archibald Bensurilla (17); John Oram (17); John Foster (16); Edward Wise (17); Robert Grout (16); James Walker (16); Francis Hemming (17), and Edward Burton (16). The following prisoner profiles, including extracts from Commander Owen's remarks, are illustrative of the revealing and detailed content in this document: Charles Goulding, a cooper and shoemaker, was sentenced to 14 years for stealing a handkerchief; "Double ironed for very improper conduct, and flogged for breaking his irons". Charles Lewis, a tailor, was sentenced to 7 years for stealing; "This lad has been very attentive to his Trade in this Ship. But in other respects he is an exceeding badly disposed lad. He has been in confinement 7 times before". Goodman Solomon, a tailor, was sentenced to 7 years for stealing a brass crimping machine; "Gaoler's report: In custody before, a bad lad. This lad is a Jew. His general conduct in this Ship has been good, and has been attentive to his Trade". William Tobin, a shoemaker, was sentenced to 7 years for stealing sundry articles of apparel; "The general behaviour of this lad has been very indifferent in this Ship. He is idle & slothful, and has made no progress at his Trade". John Foster, a shoemaker, was sentenced to 7 years for stealing 150 yards of jean; "General behaviour at this Ship very bad. Has been flogged twice, once for prophane Swearing, and once for stealing blankets".

        Autograph letter signed.

      Paris, 30. X. 1822. - 8vo. 2 pp. Bifolium with integral address panel. Anton Reicha starts his letter to Joseph-Pierre Roger in Montpellier by explaining that he has had the idea of answering his amicable letter for at least a fortnight but that he had wanted to wait for his gift to assure him of its reception and that it has finally arrived in perfect condition. Reicha continues by telling Roger how many questions his little daughter Antoinette asked about the gift and about Roger and how funny these questions sounded as Antoinette cannot yet pronounce the letters S or C. Reicha tells Roger that his letter has given great joy to all of his family as it finally ended the uncertainty of not havig had any news from his side for such a long time. All the information that Reicha could get in Paris was that Roger had gone on a big journey. Reicha and his family hope and wish for Roger's family to be in perfect health and to enjoy "happiness without clouds". Reicha's family is fine and happy about Roger's gift. Madame Reicha particularly thanks him for the beautiful lovesong she learnt to sing the very day. She is all glorious about Roger's dedication. "Je suis à la veille de donner à l'Academie Royale de Musique Sapho, opéra en 3 actes, que nous répétons depuis 4 mois" ("I am on the eve of giving Sapho, opera in 3 acts, that we have been rehearsing for 4 months, at the Royal Academy of Music"). Reicha regrets very much that Roger will not be able to carry out his plan of taking a short trip to Paris that autumn where he would be received like a brother by his dear and sincere friend Reicha. Reicha ends his letter by telling Roger that his wife sends a thousand compliments and greetings to Madame Roger and that she embraces their children.

        Early 19th-Century Engineer's or Mechanic's Manuscript Notebook

      1822 - Nearly square octavo. Blank book with stitched illustrated wrappers printed with "Fredrich II nach der Schlacht bei Kollin" ["Fredrich II after the Battle of Kollin"] printed on the front wrap and "Potsdam" on the rear. 18 unnumbered leaves, both sides of each page heavily used for both written and drawn descriptions of mechanical devices and inventions. Staining, particularly at the front and rear pages, and some erosion along the top edge that removes a modest amount of text, but nothing substantial, good only but pleasing and delightful.A wonderful notebook used by an engineer or mechanic, possibly by an advanced student. Undated but likely circa 1822, many of the devices described were developed about that time. Descriptions of approximately 23 devices and a couple of methods of measurement, each with one or more nicely accomplished and detailed illustrative drawings. The text is mostly written in brown ink, the drawings in pen and ink, some with wash or color added. The inside cover reveals the floor plan of a house, the first page shows three portraits, (one labeled "A Great Mechanic"); other illustrated devices are Tantalus's Cup, a Diving Bell, "Vessels used in making the Breakwater in Plymouth Sound [1819]," a Mowing Machine, Agate Milling machinery, a Log Land Life Safety Beacon erected on the shore in 1820, a Pedomotive Carriage (essentially a three wheeled bicycle), an automated cross-cut saw, a foot-operated paddle boat, a couple of clocks, Hadley's Quadrant, and two different nautical lifesaving devices: Lt. Bell's mortar that shoots a life line, and a full-page colored illustration that shows a similar method using oaken barrels developed by Mr. Crane of Norwich, as well as several other devices. The final drawing is one of the most intriguing: "Velocipede to be fixed to the feet like skates" but which looks similar to a modern skateboard. A very pleasing notebook filled with interesting drawings. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        SOUTH AFRICA / AUSTRALIANA: "TRACK OF H.M.S. TAMER ROUND THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE" [MANUSCRIPT TITLE, PASTED OVER ORIGINAL PRINTED TITLE: TRACK OF THE SHIP HANNAH JOHN LAMB R. N. COMMANDER ROUND THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE IN JUNE & JULY 1822.]

      Copper engraving, with contemporary pastedown overlaid manuscript title in pen and manuscript additions in pencil to the chart (Good, fine engraving impression, but with light stains throughout, traces of old purple mounting paper on verso where chart was seemingly once pasted into an album), 20.5 x 41.5 cm (8 x 16.5 inches). - [Printed chart: n.p., n.d., but likely London, 1823; Manuscript additions, 1824]. A unique example of a very rare chart of South Africa, with a curious Australian connection! Commander John Lamb’s chart showing the 1822 route of his ship ‘Hannah’, fighting the Agulhas Current rounding the Cape of Good Hope; but this example with a manuscript pastedown title regarding the route of the ‘H.M.S. Tamar’, plus manuscript traces of its route, being a Royal Navy vessel on its way, in 1824, with secret orders to found the first European settlement in what is now Northern Australia, on Melville Island. - This is a unique example of an extremely rare privately printed sea chart of South Africa, featuring manuscript alterations that give it an extraordinary Australian connection. The underlying (printed) chart depicts most of the southern coasts of South Africa in skeleton outline, labeling only the major headlands, from the Cape of Good Hope westward to the ‘Last Point of Natal’, while a line in the interior represents the beginning of the highlands. The course of the Agulhas Current, a powerful warm stream that runs southwestwards down the Indian Ocean coast of South Africa, is expressed through stipple engraving, a highly unusual technique for a sea chart. While covered by a pastedown manuscript title, the underlying printed title of the chart reads ‘Track of the Ship Hannah John Lamb R. N. Commander Round the Cape of Good Hope in June & July 1822’, and in this vain, the Hannah’s arduous course sailing against the Agulhas Current is shown, tacking erratically back and forth, but overall forward, with numbers marking its daily progress. This underlying chart was privately printed, likely in London, in 1823, for Captain John Lamb (1790 - 1862), a former Royal Naval officer who retired on half-pay, in 1814, in order to pursue a career in the merchant marine. For some years, Lamb worked for the firm of Buckles, Bagster & Buchanan as the master of several ships, one of which was the Hannah, ferrying convicts and cargo between England and Australia. Lamb eventually settled in Sydney, founding his own firm, and becoming immensely wealthy through the shipping and wool trades. SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.
