        Additional Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation

      1823. Companion to Roscoe's Observations on Penal Jurisprudence Roscoe, William [1753-1831]. Additional Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals; Containing Remarks on Prison Discipline, In Reply to an Article in the Edinburgh Review, And on the Punishment of Criminals by Solitary Confinement, As Proposed in Some of the United States of America. With an Appendix, Containing a Correspondence on That Subject, and the Latest Reports of the State Prisons of Philadelphia, New York, Massachusetts, &c. London: Printed for T. Cadell, 1823. 141, 118 pp. Octavo (5-3/4" x 9"). Contemporary gray paper boards with contrasting quarter paper spine, printed spine label, untrimmed edges. A few inkstains and light rubbing to boards, backstrip worn, boards partially detached but secure. Author presentation inscription to Gulian Verplanck to front free endpaper. Light foxing in a few places, interior otherwise fresh. * Only edition. The early nineteenth century was a watershed period in the history of penology. Many important contributions were made at this time by such luminaries as Bentham, Lieber, Livingston and Tocqueville. Roscoe's work was equally important. Believing that retribution should play no part in criminal jurisprudence, he advocated milder punishments, believing they would reform the criminal. He outlined these ideas in Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals (1819). He elaborated them, and responded to critics, in two later volumes: Further Observations and Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals, Part III (1825). Verplanck [1786-1870] was a prominent member of the New York Bar and an important reformer. He served four terms in the U.S. Congress, where he was chairman of the Ways and Means committee.

        Map of the County of Cumberland, from an actual Survey made in the Years 1821 & 1822, By C. & I. Greenwood, Most Resepectfully Dedicated to the Nobility, Clergy, Gentry of the County By the Proprietors.

      Published by the Proprietors, Geo. Pringle,70 Queen Street, Cheapside, April 10th, 1823., London, - Greenwood's large-scale map of Cumberland Large engraved map on six sheets, dissected and mounted on linen, housed in original maroon morocco pull off slipcase, lettered in gilt to spine. The maps by Christopher and John Greenwood set new standards for large-scale surveys. Although they were unsuccessful in their stated aim to map all the counties of England and Wales it is probably no coincidence that of the ones they missed, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Oxfordshire, all except Cambridgeshire were mapped by Andrew Bryant in a similar style and at the same period. From a technical point of view the Greenwoods' productions exceeded the high standards set in the previous century though without the decoration and charming title-pieces that typified large scale maps of that period.The Greenwoods started in 1817 with Lancashire and Yorkshire and by 1831 they had covered 34 counties. Their maps were masterpieces of surveying and engraving techniques, and in view of the speed at which they were completed, their accuracy is remarkable. They mark the boundaries of the counties, hundreds and parishes, churches and chapels, castles and quarries, farmhaouses and gentlemen's seats, heaths and common land, woods, parliamentary representatives and distances between towns. The price of 3 guineas each compares with the the first edition Ordnance Survey sheets of 7s 6d, though the latter did not relate to complete counties.

      Santiago de Chile, Imprenta Nacional, (1823). - Small woodcut vignette on title-page. 81 pp. 4°, disbound. Some staining and browning. Outer margin cut fairly close. Still in good condition. Contemporary inscription on title-page. ---- FIRST EDITION? Conservative, moralistic, and outwardly illiberal, this constitution was a major triumph for Mariano Egaña, its chief author. It was doomed to failure in the Chile of the 1820s. According to Collier & Sater, with its 277 articles "the constitution was far too complex to be applied to Chile (or anywhere else)." It was abrogated by the Chilean Congress in November 1824 and replaced by the @Ensayo federal of 1826.---- Briseño I, 74.

      London - Henry Colburn and Co. 1823 - A scarce first edition of this Georgian novel about a woman's struggle to survive after her husband's desertion by Frances Jacson.

The self-righteous loquacity of Mrs. Nesbit has been compared to Mrs. Norris in Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. Without half-titles. Complete in three volumes. Bookplate of David Gilson to front pastedown. Condition: Rebacked in calf with original boards preserved. Externally, quite smart, with just a few marks. Internally, firmly bound.

Contemporary ownership inscription on front flyleaf and titlepage. Light foxing and toning. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase and chemise. First edition of Haywood's substantial account of the natural and aboriginal history of Tennessee. A judge in Davidson County and one of the pioneering historians of Tennessee, Haywood wrote the companion volume entitled THE CIVIL AND POLITICAL HISTORY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, FROM ITS EARLIEST SETTLEMENT UP TO THE YEAR 1796, also published in 1823. In addition to providing much information about the Indians of Tennessee, the author attempts to demonstrate the relationship of Native Americans to the Caucasian race. He also includes details regarding Mexicans, Hindus, Persians, Peruvians, Cherokees, Chickasaws, and Natchez Indians. "In this book, now exceedingly rare and highly prized, the author has brought together a very large number of curious facts, relating to the origin and character of the natives of his State, prior to the settlement by the whites. He does not favor the hypothesis of great antiquity in the Indian nations of America, and believes in their common origin with the Caucasian race. He describes with great minuteness and care the relics of the race which once inhabited the territory, its utensils, skeletons, crania, and fortifications, most of which he appears to have personally inspected" - Field.

Formato en gran folio (2 hojas plegadas-con impresión por las cuatro caras) de medidas desplegados 43cm x 31cm. Con dos pequeños agujeros de polilla de muy poca relevancia. Algunos carteles poseen el gran atractivo de verificar célebres momentos de la historia de un país,y se dice que ésta no se conoce bien hasta que no se estudia a través de sus festejos, como es este caso, donde leemos República Peruana, dando cuenta del último episodio de la dominación española en Perú, y del nuevo orden social y político. El general San Martín proclama la independencia en 1821, firmando el acta entre otros muchos Juan de Echevarría entonces Regidor, (en este cartel como Alcalde y Coronel). No obstante los españoles bajan de la Sierra y se apoderan de Lima por última vez a principios de 1823, es entonces cuando Bolívar los vence definitivamente en Ayacucho.

        Account of an Expedition from Pittsburgh to the Rocky Mountains, performed in the Years 1819, and '20 &under the Command of Major Stephen H. Long

      H.C. Carey & Lea, Philadelphia 1823 - Text: expertly bound to style in full tree calf, covers bordered with a gilt double fillet, flat spine in compartments divided by darker tree calf bands and gilt roll tools, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers. Atlas: bound to style in half tree calf over period marbled paper covered boards, spine uniform to the text First edition of one of the most important early western expeditions. Edwin James was the botanist, geologist, and surgeon for this important government expedition, initially named the Yellowstone Expedition. Led by Major Stephen Long, the expedition added significantly to the earlier discoveries of Lewis and Clark and Zebulon Pike. In addition to his duties on the expedition, James subsequently served as the editor and compiler of this text, relying "upon his own records, the brief geological notes of Major Long, and the early journals of Thomas Say [who served as the expedition's naturalist]" (Wagner-Camp). Appendices to the text comprise astronomical and meteorological tables and Indian vocabularies. In addition to Long, James and Say, the expedition included Titian Peale as draughtsman and assistant naturalist; and Samuel Seymour as landscape artist. The published plates depict Oto Indians, views of the Plains, and buffalo. Major Long was the principal proponent of government-sponsored exploration of the West following the War of 1812. He travelled farther than Pike or Lewis and Clark, and blazed trails that were susequently followed by Fremont, Powell, and others. The expedition travelled up the Missouri and then followed the River Platte to its source in the Rocky Mountains before moving south to Upper Arkansas. From there the plan was to find the source of the Red River, but when this was missed the Canadian River was explored instead. Cartographically, the atlas contains the first maps to provide detail of the Central Plains. Upon returning to Washington from the expedition, Long drafted a large manuscript map of the West (now in the National Archives) and the printed maps in James's Account closely follows. The "Western Section" map is particularly interesting as it here that the myth of the Great American Desert was founded by Long: a myth which endured for decades. The designation Great American Desert appears east of the single range of the Rocky Mountains, together with a two-line note: "The Great American Desert is frequented by roving bands of Indians who have no fixed places of residence but roam from place to place in quest of game." Long's map, along with that of Lewis and Clark, "were the progenitors of an entire class of maps of the American Transmississippi West" (Wheat).

        Bishop Burnet's History of His Own Time

      Oxford - Clarendon Press, 1823 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A bright, clean complete set of the 1823edition of Burnet's History of His Own Time. Bound in half-leather and marbled paper-covered boards, with gilt lettering and decoration. With a bookseller's label for 'W. J. Sackett' on the front pastedown. With a nameplate for 'Reginald Thornton' on the front pastedown. Gilbert Burnet, 1643 1715, was a Scottish theologian and historian, and Bishop of Salisbury. He was fluent in Dutch, French, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. Burnet was respected as a cleric, a preacher, and an academic, as well as a writer and historian. He was educated by his father, and at the University of Aberdeen, where he earned a Master of Arts in Philosophy at the age of thirteen. He earned his Doctor of Divinity by eighteen. He travelled England and Europe for several years and in 1665returned to be ordained by the Bishop of Edinburgh. In 1669 he accepted the vacant chair of Divinity at the University of Glasgow. With the unsettled political times, he left the University in 1674 and moved to London. In London, his political and religious sentiments prompted him to support the Whigs. His energetic and bustling character led him to take an active part in the controversies of the time, and he endeavoured to bring about reconciliation between Episcopacy and Presbytery. Burnets later life was marked by Kings favours, religious controversy, and a self-exile which included some time at The Hague, asWilliam IIIs personal chaplain and later a trusted advisor to Queen Mary. As the Dictionary of National Biography tells us, as an author Burnet can be reckoned as one of the most prolific and substantial of his day. In his lifetime he published more than 140 works, ranging from sermons and short polemics to major works of theology, biography, and history. More important, unlike most authors his works were rarely ignored. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There is slight wear to the extremities, including slight bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages are bright and generally clean. There are the occasional spots, that are most prominent on the first and last few pages. There is an ink stamp on the front blank, and an ink signature on the title page, of each volume. Overall the condition is very good..
