This official account was complied by Edwin James, a naturalist and physician to the expedition. Major Stephen Harriman Long (1784-1864), a Dartmouth graduate and U.S. Army engineer, was sent to explore the western portions of the Louisiana Purchase and the Rocky Mountains. The expedition discovered and climbed several peaks, including Long's Peak, and explored the regions of the Platte and Arkansas River Valleys. This work, with its fine atlas, is a most valuable contribution to geographical and ethnographical literature." (Hill, 877).Graff 2188. Hill 877. Howes J41. Sabin 35682.HBS 64764.$22,500

        LOVES OF THE ANGELS

      1823. FIRST EDITION y. This is the first edition of a controversial work about three angels who fall in love with mortal women, our copy with aristocratic provenance. Moore cites as his inspiration a verse from the non-canonical Jewish text, the book of Enoch, "It happened, after the sons of men had multiplied in those days, that daughters were born to them elegant and beautiful; and when the Angels, the sons of heaven, beheld them, they became enamored of them." One angel reveals to his beloved the secret spell that will open the gate of heaven, which she promptly uses to enter paradise. The second angel appears to his love in his full celestial glory, causing her to spontaneously combust. The third couple was permitted to live together on earth, in imperfect mortal happiness, but with the promise of immortality after death. The sensuality of the poem's heavenly creatures shocked Victorian sensibilities, creating a scandal and guaranteeing a runaway bestseller. Moore was sufficiently concerned for his reputation that he added a foreword to the fourth edition (published the same year as the first) giving the story an Oriental setting in the Muslim world and divorcing his too-worldly angels from Christianity. The Irishman Thomas Moore (1779-1852) achieved in his day a popularity among the London literati second only to Byron, a close friend for whom he served as literary executor and who contributed to Moore's success in both direct and indirect ways. Our copy once resided in the beautiful Regency library at Newby Hall, Yorkshire, seat of the Earl de Grey. It later passed into the collection of Victoria Sackville-West of Knole.. 213 x 135 mm. (8 3/8 x 5 5/16"). x, 148, [2] pp. FIRST EDITION. Once handsome and still appealing elaborately decorated blue-green calf, covers with gilt floral border enclosing a frame of a dozen blind rules with a central panel blindstamped in a basket weave design, upper cover with "Newby Hall" stamped in gilt between the joint and the gilt frame, gilt-decorated raised bands, red morocco backstrip label, gilt spine compartments formed by half a dozen rules, featuring tulip cornerpieces, and flanked by blindstamped diapering, marbled endpapers and edges. Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of the Earl de Grey, with coronet and cypher. Small gouge to lower cover, half a dozen scratches to upper cover, leather a bit faded, spotted, and soiled, a hint of wear to joints and extremities, otherwise fine, the text especially clean and fresh, and the original decorative binding completely sound and retaining much of its original appeal.

        A general atlas containing distinct maps of all the known countries in the world.

      Fielding Lucas Junior,, Baltimore, 1823 - The finest general atlas produced in the United States Small folio (395 by 310mm), 2 leaves of letterpress, engraved frontispiece with contemporary hand-colour in full, vignette title-page, one uncoloured plate and 98 engraved maps including 13 double-page, all with superb contemporary hand-colour in full, significant foxing on two maps, fine contemporary American scarlet sheepskin panelled binding, each cover with an elaborate broad border of gilt and blind roll tools, the spine in eight compartments, with six gilt-decorated raised bands, the title in one, the others decorated with fine gilt tools. An extremely detailed, accurate and attractive American world atlas, with all the maps exquisitely coloured for the publisher, and in a fine American binding. It includes maps of the world, the western and eastern hemispheres, the five continents and the West Indies, and is especially important for the American maps (59 of the total 98), which include a separate map of each of the 24 states in the United States at the time of publication, further maps of the US territories, 20 maps of the West Indies, including a separate map of every major island, and five maps of South American countries. Most of the maps, including nearly all of the American ones, were drawn by Lucas himself and include material taken from new government surveys. Each map includes a grid of parallels and meridians, nearly all include scales and sometimes also a compass rose. An anonymous contemporary reviewer (North American review), after praising the unusually detailed and accurate maps, wrote further, "We have seldom seen so good a set of maps of the West Indies", the maps of South America "present a more full view of the present topographical state of those countries, ., than is anywhere else to be found .", and praised the entire work for "the uncommon beauty and elegance of the mechanical execution" and "exquisite beauty of coloring", concluding, "no maps have come under our eye, either from abroad or . in this country, which can claim precedence ." "if we were to select a single atlas, in which our purpose would be to obtain the greatest amount of matter within the smallest space, . we should not hesitate to choose this in preference to any we have seen". This praise has withstood the test of time, David Rumsey calling this atlas, "the finest general atlas produced in the U.S. at that time", "The quality of the engraving . is superb, the detail is very fine, and the coloring is delicate and elegant". Although especially valuable for its American maps, it has been largely overlooked in Americana reference works because of its status as a world atlas. It also includes seven maps of the ancient world (Rome, Greece, Palestine, Egypt). Fielding Lucas junior (1781-1854) set up as a stationer in Baltimore in 1804 and soon became one of America's leading cartographers, artists and publishers. His main area of specialisation were atlases and colour plate books. In 1822 he issued an atlas containing about a third of the present maps, which some were in earlier states, together with other maps by other authors. The present atlas, however, is his greatest work. Most of the United States maps were engraved by B.T. Welch and other maps by Young & Delker, J.V.N. Throop, Cone & Freeman and Kneass. Joseph Perkins (1788-1842), born in New Hampshire, worked as an engraver of bank notes and lettering. From 1814 to 1826 he worked in Philadelphia, where he was responsible for most of the lettering, drawing and engraving for Tanner's 1823 New American atlas. Although he signed only the lettering of the title-page, he may have had a hand in the unsigned lettering of some individual map titles, many in decorated roman capitals and that for the inset map of Baltimore in a very early example of decorated sans-serif capitals. William Caslon IV introduced the first sans-serif printing type, capitals only, in London in c1812, but his single size remained unique until the Figgins found [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Historical Portraiture of Leading Events in the Life of Ali Pacha, Vizier of Epirus, Surnamed the Lion, in a Series of Designs . With a Biographical Sketch.

      1823 - London: Howlett and Brimmer for Thomas M'Lean, '1823' [but one plate watermarked 1825]. Folio (366 x 267mm). Original salmon-pink linen-covered boards, upper board with letterpress title-label; pp. [8 (half-title, imprint on verso, title, verso blank, list of plates, verso blank, preface, verso blank)], [9]-30 (text), [2 (publisher's advertisement)]; 6 hand-coloured aquatint plates by G. Hunt after Davenport (one watermarked 'J. Whatman / 1825'), the first bound as a frontispiece; slightly rubbed and bumped at edges, upper board lightly marked, lower board more heavily ink-marked, hinges neatly reinforced, some light offsetting from plates onto text, some light browning and spotting, a few small marks, 2 plates with short marginal tears at gutter, one with small repair, otherwise a very good copy in the original cloth with bright and fresh colour. First and only edition. This beautifully-illustrated work offers a romanticised account of the life of the Albanian-born Ali Pasha (1741-1822), the Turkish pasha of Iannina, who was given the epithet Aslan, or 'The Lion'. Following the death of Ali's father at the hands of neighbouring chiefs who seized his lands, his mother Khamko raised a band of brigands in order to reclaim the territories, which her son did through cunning and bloodthirsty strategies, before starting his rise to power within the Ottoman Empire, which saw him become one of the most powerful viziers in the empire. As the Middle East became the subject of European interest, Ali's political manoeuvring and powermongering brought him into alliances with the French, the British and the Italians, and further enlarged his territories. However, the threat of his power finally provoked the jealous Sultan Mahmud II to send his army to besiege Ali upon a pretext, and (after two years of resistance) Ali was killed as he attempted to negotiate terms. The Encyclopaedia Britannica sums up Ali's life and the legends that grew up around him thus: 'Ali Pasha is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable, as he is one of the most picturesque, figures in modern history; and as such he was recognized in his own day. His court at Iannina was the centre of a sort of barbarous culture, in which astrologers, alchemists and Greek poets played their part, and was often visited by travellers. Amongst others, Byron came, and has left a record of his impressions in " Childe Harold's Pilgrimage," less interesting and vivid than the prose accounts of Pouqueville, T. S. Hughes and William M. Leake [.] To the wild people over whom he ruled [no apology for his policies] was needed. He had their respect, if not their love; he is the hero of a thousand ballads; and his portrait still hangs among the ikons in the cottages of the Greek mountaineers. All accounts agree in describing him in later life as a man of handsome presence, with a venerable white beard, piercing black eyes and a benevolent cast of countenance, the effect of which was heightened in conversation by a voice of singular sweetness'. The text of Historical Portraiture of Leading Events in the Life of Ali Pacha appears to have been derived from the first English edition of Alphonse de Beauchamp's Vie d'Ali-Pacha, visir de Janina, surnommà Aslan, ou Le Lion (Paris: 1822), which was translated anonymously as The Life of Ali Pacha of Janina, Vizier of Epirus (London: 1822), and complements the six remarkable coloured aquatints, which depict the following subjects: 'The Youthful Ali Bey, Shewn by his Mother to the Partisans and Vassals of his Father[']s House'; 'Ali Bey Discovers the Chest of Treasure, Near the Ruins of an Old Monastery in the Mountain'; 'The Vow of Vengeance, Made by Ali Pacha and his Sister Chaà nitza over the Dead Body of their Mother'; 'The Vizier Ali Pacha, Giving the Fatal Signal, for the Slaughter of the Gardikiotes Shut up in the Khan of Valiare'; 'The Delivery of the Broken Ring, to Ali Pacha's Faithful Slave in the Magazine of the Citadel'; and 'Ali Pacha and his Brav [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        LOVES OF THE ANGELS

      , 1823. 1823. FIRST EDITION y. This is the first edition of a controversial work about three angels who fall in love with mortal women, our copy with aristocratic provenance. Moore cites as his inspiration a verse from the non-canonical Jewish text, the book of Enoch, "It happened, after the sons of men had multiplied in those days, that daughters were born to them elegant and beautiful; and when the Angels, the sons of heaven, beheld them, they became enamored of them." One angel reveals to his beloved the secret spell that will open the gate of heaven, which she promptly uses to enter paradise. The second angel appears to his love in his full celestial glory, causing her to spontaneously combust. The third couple was permitted to live together on earth, in imperfect mortal happiness, but with the promise of immortality after death. The sensuality of the poem's heavenly creatures shocked Victorian sensibilities, creating a scandal and guaranteeing a runaway bestseller. Moore was sufficiently concerned for his reputation that he added a foreword to the fourth edition (published the same year as the first) giving the story an Oriental setting in the Muslim world and divorcing his too-worldly angels from Christianity. The Irishman Thomas Moore (1779-1852) achieved in his day a popularity among the London literati second only to Byron, a close friend for whom he served as literary executor and who contributed to Moore's success in both direct and indirect ways. Our copy once resided in the beautiful Regency library at Newby Hall, Yorkshire, seat of the Earl de Grey. It later passed into the collection of Victoria Sackville-West of Knole.. 213 x 135 mm. (8 3/8 x 5 5/16"). x, 148, [2] pp. FIRST EDITION. Once handsome and still appealing elaborately decorated blue-green calf, covers with gilt floral border enclosing a frame of a dozen blind rules with a central panel blindstamped in a basket weave design, upper cover with "Newby Hall" stamped in gilt between the joint and the gilt frame, gilt-decorated raised bands, red morocco backstrip label, gilt spine compartments formed by half a dozen rules, featuring tulip cornerpieces, and flanked by blindstamped diapering, marbled endpapers and edges. Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of the Earl de Grey, with coronet and cypher. Small gouge to lower cover, half a dozen scratches to upper cover, leather a bit faded, spotted, and soiled, a hint of wear to joints and extremities, otherwise fine, the text especially clean and fresh, and the original decorative binding completely sound and retaining much of its original appeal.This is the first edition of a controversial work about three angels who fall in love with mortal women, our copy with aristocratic provenance.

        James Monroe and John Quincy Adams Signed Patent for Wheel to Secure Ropes and Chains Used in Machinery

      Washington 1823 - Document Signed by Madison as President and co-signed by Adams as Secretary of State, issued to James Cooper, Patent for a wheel to prevent ropes and chains from slipping when used for turning machinery. Washington, June 17, 1823. 1 p. 11 1/2 x 14 3/4 in. James Monroe (1758-1831) was the fifth president of the United States (1817-25). Born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, he served in the Revolution, entered politics after the war, becoming a Senator (1790-94) and then Governor of Virginia (1799-1802). In 1803, he helped negotiate the Louisiana Purchase for President Jefferson. Monroe served as Secretary of State (1811-17) and Secretary of War (1814-15) under Madison. He was elected President in 1816 and again (almost unanimously) in 1820, receiving 231 out of 232 electoral votes. His popularity was so widespread that he and his party's ascendancy was heralded as the "Era of Good Feelings." His two terms are remembered for the recognition of the new Latin American republics and, of course, the Monroe Doctrine. In his Annual Message of 1823, Monroe responded to European threats of encroachment on Latin American land by declaring that the American continents, "by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintain, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European Power." Monroe could do little to back up these statements and it was not until the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt that this policy was given military muscle.John Quincy Adams (1767-1848) was the sixth president of the United States (1825-29). Born in Quincy, Massachusetts, the son of John Adams, the younger Adams studied at Harvard and was admitted to the bar in 1790. He served successively as minister to The Netherlands, Great Britain, Portugal, and Berlin in the 1790s. He served in the Massachusetts Senate (1803-06), as minister to Russia (1809), and as minister to the Court of St. James (1815-17). Adams was elected president over Andrew Jackson without a majority of electoral votes; the election was ultimately decided by the House of Representatives. As president, he developed a federal program to create a system of highways and canals connecting the territories, and in 1828 broke ground for the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal. In 1830, Adams was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, where he served for the remainder of his life as a fighter against the circumscription of civil liberties.James Cooper (1780-1845) was born in Virginia. A serial inventor, Cooper also obtained patents for improving Archimedian screws in 1819 and for machinery to supersede the use of cog wheels in 1826.ConditionEngrossment is light; James Monroe's signature is good and John Quincy Adams' signature is dark. Tape remnants on verso at edges from former framing.Historical Background- Presidential Signed PatentsAt 3:00 on the morning of December 15, 1836, a Patent Office messenger sleeping in the building awoke to thick smoke emanating from the basement. He acted quickly, rousing his colleagues to make a desperate attempt to enter the portion of the building that housed the patent documents. Outside the patent room, they encountered blocked doors, heavy smoke, and unreachable windows. By the time the fire department arrived, it was too late; the Patent Office was doomed, and eventually burnt to the ground.An estimated 7,000 models, 9,000 drawings and 230 books-as well as applications, correspondence, and patent copies-were destroyed by the blaze. Some of these documents were recovered with the help of inventors who still held the original patents, but an examination of the records recovered by the Patent Office revealed that their efforts to restore the archive were not very successful. Many of the destroyed patents were issued between 1790 and 1822, and had expired at the time of the fire, which made the recovery process even more difficult (Early Un-numbered U.S. Patents, 1790-1836).

        Sultan. Winner of the Newmarket Whip in 1823 / By Selim out of Bacchante by Williamson's Ditto. / the Property of the Most Noble the Maquis of Exeter. Farbaquatinta in altkolorit.

      London. 1823 - Plattengrösse: 31,5x42cm. In passendem Rahmen unter Passepartout 56x64 cm. Sehr schöne handkolorierte Aquatinta. John Ferneley senior was born in Thrussington, Leicestershire; the son of a wheelwright and wagon builder. He worked for his father until, aged 20, his naïve paintings were noticed by the Duke of Rutland. He then began an apprenticeship with sporting artist Ben Marshall in London and received commissions from officers of the Leicestershire yeomanry under the Duke’s command. Fox-hunter Thomas Assheton Smith and Irish noblemen Lord Lismore and George O’Callaghan became important patrons. Ferneley settled in Melton Mowbray in 1813, later building Elgin Lodge. He is best-known for hunting portraits and panoramic views of hunters galloping. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, British Institution and Society of British Artists. He died aged 78. Edward Duncan, a marine and landscape painter in watercolour and engraver, was the son of an artist and engraver, also named Edward. He began his career in the studio of Robert Havell senior and later set up business on his own, engraving sporting and shipping subjects, particularly by the William John Huggins. He later married Huggins’s daughter, Berthia. He became a member of the Royal Institution in 1833, serving as Vice-President and Treasurer, but resigned in 1847. Two years later he became a member of the Royal Society of Painters in Water Colours. Between 1843 and 1851, he worked as an illustrator for the ‘Illustrated London News’. Duncan lived in north London throughout his life. He died at his home near Haverstock Hill, aged 78. This rich, red bay colt with three white socks was named ‘Sultan’. Bred from ‘Bacchante’ in 1816, ‘Sultan’ was initially owned by the gambling club proprietor William Crockford (c.1776-1844). Crockford began his career as a bookmaker at Newmarket Heath but in 1828 established the high-stakes London gaming club known as Crockford’s, in St James’s Street. In 1821 Sultan was sold to Thomas Foley, 3rd Baron. Immediately after the Newmarket Whip of 1823, Foley sold the horse to Brownlow Cecil, second Marquess of Exeter. As ‘Sultan’ was the only challenger for the Newmarket Whip that year, the horse in fact won by default. This may explain why the winner is here depicted at rest in a field, rather than racing.

        Manuel d’Électricité Dynamique, ou Traité sur l’action mutuelle des conducteurs électriques et des aimans, et sur une nouvelle théorie du magnetism; pour faire suite à tous les Traités de Physique élémentaire.

      Bachelier, 1823., Paris: - 8vo. 8.25 x 5.25 inches. [4], 210, [2] pp. It appears that this work was issued in two printings in 1823. There is no mention of two issues in any reference work, so we can only guess at which issue is the first. Some institutional copies (such as the Wheeler copy) are numbered to page 210 (like ours) and in those copies the address of the publisher given on the title page is "Quai des grands-Augustins, no. 55" (with the issue point of a lower case "g" in "grands"). ILLUSTRATIONS: Five folding engraved plates with light scattered foxing, but overall in very good plus condition. BINDING: Handsomely bound in modern calf over marbled boards with gilt-stamped spine label; corners rubbed, spine carefully repaired with ends missing small pieces. INTERIOR: Endpapers renewed. Some light foxing to half-title page and an occasional small, light brown spot scattered in the text, but overall the interior is in near fine condition. This work was translated into English by James Cumming in 1872 as A Manual of Electro Dynamics, or, Treatise on the Mutual Action of Electric Conductors and Magnets. Scarce FIRST EDITION of the first textbook on electrodynamics to incorporate the newly made discoveries of Ampère and Oersted (Bakken 174; Poggendorff, 548). Demonferrand’s Manuel d’Électricité Dynamique illuminates the "fundamental phenomena and laws of electro-dynamics" and represents a first, important, and comprehensive treatment (written in scientific and mathematical language) of Ampere’s theory of electromagnetism (Wheeler 797). "Demonferrand’s account is more informative in some other respects than either of the previous written versions The notion of an equilibrium is reported here for the first time, yet it agrees with a much later account given by Ampère himself in1833. Furthermore, Demonferrand indicated that the object of [one of his] experiment[s] was to throw light on the question of whether electric currents already exist in iron when it is in the unmagnetized condition, or if they are brought into being as a result of magnetization. The result of the experiment did not settle this question But once again we find Demonferrand anticipating a later statement (1833) by Ampère of his objective in performing the experiment .Some years later, after the publication of Faraday’s discovery, the history of this experiment suddenly acquired some importance" (Ross 92). "Demonferrand’s account of the Ampère-de La Rive experiment has a certain precision of description that suggests he may have derived it in part from Ampère himself; it is, at all events, a more explicit account than any previously published Ampère, himself, promoted Demonferrand’s work, sending many copies of Manuel d’Électricité Dynamique abroad, including one to Michael Faraday" (Ross 90). Demonferrand (1795-1844) was a pupil of Ampère and a professor of mathematics and physics at the Colège Royale in Versailles. In this work, he describes many of Ampère’s theories, supplemented with experimental research and theories of his own.

Overall a very good copy in a pleasing binding. First edition. Mendelssohn p.127. 'The volume was written anonymously under the signature of 'A Civil Servant of the Colony', and it is claimed that it is 'a plain narrative of whatever may have attracted general attention', whilst the editor, Mr. H.T. Colebrook, states in his Preface, 'I have inserted brief notes at the foot of the page; and subjoin a few annotations on topics of interest, upon which I am desirous of delivering my own sentiments at greater length'. The author, a public official, had opportunities of inspecting Government papers, estimates, and statistics, and with regard to these matters, the volume may be taken to accurately represent the position of the Cape colony at this period. Full particulars are given with reference to the system of Government, Courts of Law, and Burgher Senate, the 'enregisterment of slaves', together with notes upon agriculture, viticulture, whale-fishing, &c. &c. There is an interesting description of Cape town, and 'of the manners, customs, and habits of its people'. the remarks are by no means uniformly complimentary to the Dutch inhabitants, and reflect in a curious light the somewhat primitive state of the majority of the population.'

He must have "qualifications both of the painter and sculptor; and the power of combining the theories of art with scientific excellence.'" (Archer). This "well printed [book] with pleasing little plates and readable text" (Prideaux) originated as a series of 34 articles, each consisting of a single plate and accompanying description, appearing in Ackermann's Repository between 1819 and 1821. Papworth chose 28 of these fine aquatints (including ones of an aviary, dairy, ice house, laundry, poultry house, Venetian tent, bath and apiary) to be included here and added revised and expanded descriptions with "an important new introductory essay" (Archer). N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Third Edition of Mitford’s most famous work, in octosyllabic verse. An imitation of a work published in 1818, by Alfred Burton, with the same title, both works being imitations of The military adventures of Johnny Newcome . . . by an officer (London, 1815). "The Mitford work is an entirely different poem from the poem by Alfred Burton, though evidently an imitation of it." (Hardie) Johnny Newcome (generic for raw recruit) is a clergyman’s son forced to leave school and join the navy when his father loses his money in a banking crash. He embarks on H.M.S. Capricorn and, under the good captain Dale, his career prospers. But in Jamaica yellow fever strikes, Captain Dale dies and is replaced by the bullying Captain Teak, and Johnny leaves the navy, falling on hard times. According to the ODNB, in 1814 or thereabouts, Mitford was "showing signs of mental illness. He was discharged from the navy as insane, and took to journalism and poetry. He was unable to make a living and became poverty-stricken, leaving his wife and children. . . . [In later years,] "unkempt, ragged, and filthy, [Mitford] lived and worked for forty-three days in the open in an old gravel pit in Bayswater Fields, with a bed of grass and nettles." Mitford wrote Adventures of Johnny Newcome there, "where he lay in hiding, receiving from his publisher a shilling daily in return for his copy, wherewith to purchase gin and cheese." (Hardie) N. B.

        [MAP] Australien

      / entworfen und gezeichnet 1823 nach dem Krusenstern'schen Atlasse umgearbeitet 1825. Weimar: Im Verlage des Geograph. Instituts, 1826. Engraved map with hand colouring, 430 x 595 mm, dissected and laid down on linen, folding to 220 x 190 mm; map of Australia and Oceania with relief shown by hachures; in very good condition with a tiny amount of spotting, the linen backing with mild foxing. Although the coastlines of Australia, New Guinea, the Indonesian archipelago, New Zealand, island Polynesia, Micronesia and Melanesia are all essentially complete, perhaps the most striking aspect of this map is the vast emptiness of the as yet unexplored interiors of both the Australian continent (Neu Holland) and New Guinea. The cartographer, C.F. Weiland, was trained as a military mapmaker, and as head of map and globe production at the Weimar Geographical Institute, a publishing house and research institute, he was responsible for revising many earlier maps by important cartographers. Weiland's maps are noted for their accuracy and fine engraving, and the present example is no exception. A single copy is recorded in Australian collections (National Library of Australia).
