        NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER. PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.

      Washington. Dec. 4, . 1823 - 4pp. in NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER Vol. 24, No. 3526. Folio. Dbd. Old folds and some light wrinkling. Very good. The second printing and first newspaper appearance of one of the most important foreign policy statements of the United States government. In this message to Congress, Monroe asserts that the Americas cannot be the subject of colonization by European powers, and that any European intervention in the Americas will be considered a "manifestation of an unfriendly disposition towards the United States." Monroe delivered the Doctrine in his State of the Union message on Dec. 2, 1823, and it was first printed as a NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER Extra the same day. We are aware of only four copies of that printing, the Streeter copy (his sale, lot 1734, $3500 in 1967), now in the Scheide Library; a copy in the Gilder- Lehrman Collection; and two other copies, whereabouts unknown. This is the second printing, in a regular issue of the NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER for Dec. 4. This printing seems to be from the same setting of type, with a slight rearrangement of the columns. It appears on page 4 of the issue and is suitable for broadside display. STREETER SALE 1734 (ref). GROLIER AMERICAN 100, 33.

        View of the Hebrews ; exhibiting The Destruction of Jerusalem ; The Certain Restoration of Judah and Israel ; The Present State of Judah and Israel ; and An Address of the Prophet Isaiah Relative to their Restoration

      Poultney, (Vt.): Smith & Shute, 1823. First Edition. Full leather. Very Good. First Edition. [iii]-vi, [5]-187 pages. 12mo (4 x 6 3/4 inches). Full leather binding with red spine label and simple gilt spine rules. Previous owner's name inked on front flyleaf. First two initials on second blank flyleaf, and all three initials inked at top of title page. Rear blank endpaper torn. First few pages loose. Light foxing and toning throughout. Full leather. "'View of the Hebrews' is an 1823 book written by Ethan Smith, a United States Congregationalist minister, who argued that Native Americans were descended from the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. This was a relatively common view during the early nineteenth century, as most Europeans and Americans had a view of history as biblical. Numerous commentators on Mormon history, from LDS Church general authority B. H. Roberts to Fawn M. Brodie, biographer of Joseph Smith, have noted similarities in the content of 'View of the Hebrews' and the 'Book of Mormon', which was first published in 1830, seven years after Ethan Smith's book." (wikipedia) First published in 1823, there is also a substantially enlarged 1825 edition. The 2011 Swann Galleries auction listing noted "No other copies of the first edition found at auction since 1918; [and] none of any edition known since 1983." While we're aware of at least one other auction, it is nonetheless scarce even though a few of each edition have appeared in recent years in the trade as the search for rarities intensifies. A nice addition to any collection related to American Indian or Mormon history. Pilling 3655, Sabin 82538.

        Karl Holthoff, Büste nahezu en face.

      - Bleistift, auf Velin, um 1823. 15:11,4 cm. Der Dargestellte war der Gatte von Lila von Kügelgen. Die genaue Identifizierung der Dargestellten verdanken wir Dorothée von Hellermann, Maastricht (Nachricht vom 8.02.2010). Wilhelm von Kügelgen war der Sohn von Gerhard von Kügelgen (1772-1820). Seit 1805 in Dresden, lebte er 1817-1818 in Bernburg bei seinem späteren Schwiegervater F.A. Krummacher. Im Spätsommer ging er an die Dresdener Akademie zunächst als Schüler seines Vaters und nach dessen Ermordung 1820 bei F. Hartmann (1774-1842). Nach Abschluß des Studiums, unterbrochen 1822-1823 durch einen Aufenthalt in Estland bei seinen Verwandten mütterlicherseits, ging er im Herbst 1825 nach Rom, wo er mit seinem früheren Hauslehrer C.A. Senff (1785-1863) und mit B. Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) in der Casa Buti wohnte und die Lebensfreundschaft mit L. Richter (1803-1884) und C.G. Peschel (1798-1879) begründet wurde. Krankheit und die Verlobung mit Julie Krummacher veranlaßten ihn, Rom im Mai 1826 zu verlassen. Er kehrte über Florenz und Venedig in die Heimat zurück. Nach einem vergeblichen Versuch als Porträtmaler in St. Peterburg Fuß zu fassen, kehrte er schon 1829 wieder nach Dresden zurück. 1830 siedelte er nach Schloß Hermsdorf bei Dresden über, das einem Freund gehörte. 1833 wurde er als Hofmaler nach Ballenstedt berufen, wo er, unterbrochen von wenigen Reisen, bis 1853 dieses Amt innehatte. Bis 1863 betreute er als Kammerherr aufopfernd den geisteskranken Herzog. Danach war er schriftstellerisch tätig. Seine letzten Lebensjahre waren durch familiäre Schicksalsschläge und eigene Krankheit geprägt. Kügelgen veröffentlichte 1870 seine "Jugenderinnerungen eines alten Mannes", das sich großer Beliebtheit erfreute.

        Set of the three Reports of Inquiry

      House of Commons: 1822-, 1823. Folio, three Parliamentary Papers: pp. [iv], 186; pp. [ii], 90; pp. 112, several leaves unopened; fine in original blue paper wrappers, preserved in a lined modern half-calf folding box, spine gilt-lettered, together with a review of Bigge's report from The Edinburgh Review 1823. A fine set of the series of reports of the official enquiry into Governor Macquarie's administration of New South Wales, comprising:1) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry into the State of the Colony (here in its first issue of June 1822, with the libel against William Wentworth. This first issue was withdrawn and is now rare. It was later reprinted on August 5 1822).2) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Judicial Establishments (February 1823).3) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Agriculture and Trade (March 1823).John Thomas Bigge was appointed Royal Commissioner, with sweeping powers, by Lord Bathurst - ostensibly to examine the transportation system, but in fact to cast a critical eye over every aspect of Macquarie's controversial administration. Bigge was unyielding in his critique and relations between the two were strained. However, by the time his reports were published, Macquarie had already resigned.Bigge's reports were central to the political history of the 1820s, and their influence can be seen in the later constitutional and political history of Australia. Indeed, it was as a result of Bigge's recommendations that the New South Wales Act of 1823 was ratified, authorising the establishment of a Supreme Court and Legislative Council in New South Wales, as well as a Supreme Court in Van Diemen's Land, and marked an important step towards responsible government in the colonies.Bigge's reports are also essential sources for information about conditions in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land in the 1820s, not least because of his recognition of the growing importance of the colonies for wealthy free settlers. Bigge had urged the Colonial Office to seek places away from Sydney both to send intractable offenders and to encourage free settlement by releasing land for graziers. It was as a direct result of his report that the Moreton Bay area was first explored with a view to future settlement. Consequently, Oxley was commissioned by Brisbane to reconnoitre the north coast. He explored Moreton Bay and named the Brisbane River; his report ultimately led to the foundation of the Moreton Bay colony. Australian Rare Books, 46-8; Ferguson, 854, 891-2.

        German Popular Stories, Translated from the Kinder und Haus Märchen, Collected by M.M. Grimm, From Oral Tradition (2 volumes)

      London: First volume: C. Baldwyn. Second volume: James Robins & Co. and Joseph Robins Junr. & Co. (Dublin). Both volumes printed by Richard Taylor, 1823, 1826. First edition. Full Morocco. Very Good Plus. 8vo. 17.5 by 11 cm. xii, 240, iv, 256, [2] pp. Eleven and nine etched plates, plus etched illustrations on both title pages. The first volume, dated 1823, does have the umlaut correction on "Märchen", and the subtitle for "The Travelling Musician", making this the third issue, which is alternatively considered a second edition, but in either case was issued the same year as the first issue. This copy is also without the ads in the back. The second volume is without ads as well. Cohn 369. Notwithstanding these caveats, these are two very handsome copies of the first appearance in English of Grimm's anthology of German fairy tales. There is scattered foxing in the two volumes, and moderate offsetting of the plates. Still, most of the leaves are clean. Handsomely bound in a thick red morocco, raised bands, gilt decoration, with a striking ruled border on all the boards. Two tiny soil marks on the leather edge. With a neatly inscribed note on the first blank from a G. Chambers describing the rarity of the work, meaning the edition, and speaking of the (then recent) sale of the Beckford copy at the Hamilton Auction, which occurred in 1882.

        THE CRIES OF LONDON. Drawn from Life. With Descriptive Letter-Press in Verse and Prose.

      [26] pages. Separate engraved pictorial title, coloured by hand, and 23 hand-coloured engraved plates of 'cries.' Later half green morocco over marbled boards by Tout; green silk marker; all edges gilt. Binding: 16.8 x 10.5 cm. Bookplate of the noted collector Eric Quayle to the front pastedown. An excellent, clean copy.This work is an edition for children of Thomas Lord Busby's 'Costumes of the Lower Orders.' However the text has been simplified and the illustrations reduced for the juvenile market. The frontispiece shows two children viewing a peepshow, and notes that the work was, 'Price in No's 1s, half Bound 3s.6d Complete.' This means that the work could be purchased in three parts at 1 shilling per part. This explains why plates 1, 9,, and 17 have engraved imprints. The copy cited by Beall consequently was only one part of the work. Abbey Life 261; Beall E45. OCLC records just three copies at Yale, Princeton, and Indiana, with a part only at UCLA.

        A Voyage in the South Seas... with Particular Details of the Gallipagos (sic) and Washington Islands

      London: Sir Richard Phillips & Co., 1823. 126 pp. b/w plates. Something of an oddity. The keynote of Porter?'s career - and of his published narrative - was his campaign in the Pacific against British shipping during the War of 1812. His book was first published in America in 1815. It appeared eight years later in London, with all the anti-British passages cut out. Hence it has shrunk from the orignal two volume work over 400 pages in length, to this 126 page production. This edition features two plates and a folding map of the Galapagos Islands. See Hill, 1374. Howes P-484. A handsome, untrimmed copy, bound in half calf over boards by Root & Son.

        An Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation A new Edition, corrected by the Author

      London: E. Wilson and W. Pickering,, 1823. 2 volumes bound into one, octavo (211 × 127 mm). Contemporary straight grained blue morocco, covers with double-rule gilt border, rebacked, new red morocco spine labels, marbled edges. Engraved portrait frontispiece to vol. I. Engraved armorial bookplate of the English Judge Nathaniel Lindley to front pastedown. A few small scuff marks to covers. Offset from frontispiece to title, with some light spotting; a very attractive copy. Second edition, revised with a few additional notes, of Bentham's best-known and perhaps his greatest work, containing the clearest statement of his fundamental views, the principle of utility in particular, originally published in 1789. Apart from the Fragment on Government it is, as Hart notes (Bentham, p. 298), the only work of Bentham's to enter regularly into the academic teaching of political philosophy, politics and jurisprudence. Bentham was working on the Introduction - which he originally intended to call "The critical elements of jurisprudence" - as early as 1776. He intended it as a preparation and a plan for a number of further treatises; the Tactique des assemblées législatives (1816) corresponds to one section of the scheme. The title exists in two variant states, putting either Pickering or Wilson first in the imprint. There is no precedence.

        Set of the three Reports of Inquiry.

      House of Commons: 1822-, 1823. Folio, three Parliamentary Papers: pp. [iv], 186; pp. [ii], 90; pp. 112, several leaves unopened; fine in original blue paper wrappers, preserved in a lined modern half-calf folding box, spine gilt-lettered, together with a review of Bigge's report from The Edinburgh Review 1823. A fine set of the series of reports of the official enquiry into Governor Macquarie's administration of New South Wales, comprising:1) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry into the State of the Colony (here in its first issue of June 1822, with the libel against William Wentworth. This first issue was withdrawn and is now rare. It was later reprinted on August 5 1822).2) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Judicial Establishments (February 1823).3) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Agriculture and Trade (March 1823).John Thomas Bigge was appointed Royal Commissioner, with sweeping powers, by Lord Bathurst - ostensibly to examine the transportation system, but in fact to cast a critical eye over every aspect of Macquarie's controversial administration. Bigge was unyielding in his critique and relations between the two were strained. However, by the time his reports were published, Macquarie had already resigned.Bigge's reports were central to the political history of the 1820s, and their influence can be seen in the later constitutional and political history of Australia. Indeed, it was as a result of Bigge's recommendations that the New South Wales Act of 1823 was ratified, authorising the establishment of a Supreme Court and Legislative Council in New South Wales, as well as a Supreme Court in Van Diemen's Land, and marked an important step towards responsible government in the colonies.Bigge's reports are also essential sources for information about conditions in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land in the 1820s, not least because of his recognition of the growing importance of the colonies for wealthy free settlers. Bigge had urged the Colonial Office to seek places away from Sydney both to send intractable offenders and to encourage free settlement by releasing land for graziers. It was as a direct result of his report that the Moreton Bay area was first explored with a view to future settlement. Consequently, Oxley was commissioned by Brisbane to reconnoitre the north coast. He explored Moreton Bay and named the Brisbane River; his report ultimately led to the foundation of the Moreton Bay colony. Australian Rare Books, 46-8; Ferguson, 854, 891-2.

He settled in Australia in 1841 and is considered to be a pioneering figure in that country's musical history. Elizabeth Wood in Grove Music Online.
