A Treatise of The Law of Rights of Common Humphry W Woolrych 1824 Joseph Butterworth and Son : London 9.5" by 6" xxvi, [2], 459pp SUMMARY A scarce first edition copy of this legal work by noted legal writer, Humphrey W Woolrych. Rebound in a very smart quarter cloth binding with marbled paper boards. First Edition,Rebound Overall Condition: Very Good Indeed This book weighs 0.75 KG when packed UK Postage: £ 3.99 US Postage: £ 19.99 EU Postage: £ 15.99 European Postage: £ 16.99 Asia Postage: £ 21.99 Worldwide Postage: £ 25.99 DESCRIPTION Complete with half-title. To the preface, Woolrych notes that it has now been over a century since a 'distinct Treatise on the subject of Commonable Rights has been presented to the Public'. He therefore states that it would be unlikely that people would be familiar with these laws. 'It has been the object of the Author of this Treatise, which he submits with much diffidence to the Public, to examine particularly each species of Common, to investigate the rights of Lords and Commoners' Woolrych looks at the history and origin of Rights of Common in England, before discussing the various types of Rights and Acts relating to this. Humphry William Woolrych was an English lawyer who is remembered for his many legal and biographical writings which made many aspects of the Law accessible to a wider audience. Other works by him include 'Laws of Waters and Sewers', 'Law of Window Lights', 'New Highways Act'. An accessible and well-described insight into this part of English … [Click Below for Full Description]

Duras, Claire Duchesse de.
Édition Originale. Paris, Chez Ladvocat, 1824. 18 x 11 cm. 172 pages. Relié plein cuir vert / Beautiful contemporary Hardcover. Intérieur bon état malgré légéres rousseurs éparses. Couverture défraichie et tachée. Provenance: Exlibris: A Debidour (Élie Louis Marie Marc Antonin Debidour) / Premiere edition dans le commerce après la rare édition originale publiée entre 25 et 40 exemplaires en décembre 1823 par l'Imprimerie royale pour les amis de l'auteur. Ce court récit fut rapidement écrit en 1820 lors d'une retraite de convalescence. Sollicitée par Chateaubriand, ami de la Duchesse de Duras depuis 1809, qui avait parti- culièrement aprécier le texte, l'auteur se décida à publier l'ouvrage anonymement. L'histoire de cette jeune sénégalaise, éduquée en France se rendant compte à l'âge de 12 ans des préjudices liés à sa couleur de peau, est considérée comme le premier roman de la littérature française à aborder les problèmes de racisme. / First published edition, following a private printing of 25 copies. A very good+ copy in contemporary paper-covered boards. An anonymously published novel by a French woman who was a close friend of Chateaubriand and who established a well-known salon in London. Her work has been compared to that of Richardson and Rousseau for obvious reasons, but she is perhaps more relevantly understood in the context of the early 19th-century French women's writing that has only rather recently become a subject of study. Based on the true story of a Sengalese servan, unaware of her race until she overhears talk of it among the French family for whom she … [Click Below for Full Description]

A rare item. * Livingston mailed this circular letter to distinguished jurists and political figures to solicit feedback on the final draft of the first part of his System of Penal Law. It was, in effect, a cover sheet. He explains the nature of the code and asks his readers "to note in the margin such observations as occur to you for its amelioration, and to communicate them to me with your first leisure. He ends his letter with a request for "the aid of your learning, experience, and judgment, to supply what is deficient, and to correct what is erroneous in the work." Plumer, the recipient of this copy was an important New Hampshire lawyer, politician and Baptist lay preacher. He is best known for his efforts to convert Dartmouth College into a public institution while governor of New Hampshire, a post he held in 1812-1813 and 1816-1819. His efforts resulted in the great U.S. Supreme Court case Trustees of Dartmouth College v. Woodward. Livingston's … [Click Below for Full Description]

INDIA.
Calcutta: Printed at the Government Gazette Press, 1824. First edition, small 4to (225 x 160 mm), v, [1], [1]-46, 1-207, [1]pp., printed on thick paper Balston & Co. watermarked paper, inoffensive blind-stamp to lower blank margin of first 3 leaves, neat 'transferred duplicate' ink stamp to final leaf, new endpapers, recent half calf, marbled paper boards, leather label lettered in gilt to spine, a very good copy. As the title page states, this work has a very specific use, it was prepared by the Survey of India, a governmental department founded in 1767 to map territories for the British East India Company. The Survey is best remembered for its masterwork, the "Great Trigonometric Survey," that began in 1802 and continued for decades, mapping British territories in India and measuring the height of the world's tallest mountains in the Himalayas. Georg Everest, for whom Mount Everest is named, was Surveyor-General of India at the time this book was issued, no doubt to assist the surveyors working on this monumental project. Our copy was owned at onetime by the Topographical and Statistical Depot of the British Department of War, which was established in 1855 in order to produce maps of overseas countries, the need for which became clear during the war in Crimea. What began as a mapping project of possible hostile territories evolved into military intelligence work, a function that was split off from the topographical department in the 1880s. This appears to be extremely rare, Copac and OCLC locates a single location at the British Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard C … [Click Below for Full Description]

Printed by Arthur Taylor, London, 1824. [4], 44pp. Original calf, front board detached but present. Endpapers foxed. Except as noted, Very Good. The City of London Police Force officially came into existence in August 1839. Its predecessor was a force of aldermen. In 1824 the Alderman created these first "Rules, Orders and Regulations for the Police of the City of London." Later editions appeared in 1827, 1829, and 1832. In 1829, Sir Robert Peel created a professional police force, but not until 1839 was it officially maintained by the City of London. These rare Rules and Orders are the genesis of the official London Police Force. "Made by the Court of Alderman, 30th March, 1824," they prescribe mustering times; uniform; execution of warrants; record-keeping of warrants, occurrences and the like; attendance at court sessions; day and night patrols and the numbers to be appointed at the six stations; regulation of coaches, carts and vagrants. Extracts from some statutes are also printed: Clause from the Act for ill treatment of Cattle; Clause from the Sewers Act of Parliament, for the Standing of Coaches, &c.; Clause from Ditto, for seizing Obstructions in the Streets; Orders and Regulations for the Marshals, made by Common Council, 25 April, 1816, etc. See, Wade: SQUARE MILE BOBBIES: THE CITY OF LONDON POLICE 1829-1949, History Press: 2009 [accessed online at GoogleBooks].

Philadelphia, 1824. Broadside, approx. 9½" x 7½", short breaks at the extremities, previous folds, very good. Signed in ink "Lobstein M.D." The prospectus notes that Lobstein has published a similar book in French which has been favorably reviewed in "many of the most reputable European Medical Journals," and he proposes to publish one in America "on good paper, in one octavo volume, and bound, containing about 120 pages. The subscription price is One Dollar a copy, to be paid when the work is delivered." The book was published the following year by the author himself, printed by R. Wright. Of this prospectus, only LC (formerly part of the James Madison Papers) in OCLC. Nor was Madison the only American President Lobstein sought as a subscriber. On August 9, 1824 he wrote to Thomas Jefferson, "I would be rewarded enough by the notable honor Your Excellency would do me in granting me this favor to allow me to send a copy of it to His Excellency as soon as it is printed, as a token of my sincere attachment and my profound respect for his person." And on March 19 of the following year Lobstein sent Jefferson a short note presenting the book. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Importante mouillure qui affecte toutes les pages de la Lettre - rousseurs éparses sur le Précis. Exemplaire COMPLET DE TOUTES SES PLANCHES. EDITION ORIGINALE du Précis du système hiéroglyphique, livre capital pour l?intelligence de l?ancienne écriture égyptienne. Après voir publié en 1822 son De l?écriture hiératique égyptienne, Champollion réussit à déchiffrer sur la Pierre de Rosette deux noms royaux en caractères hiératiques et put ainsi compléter son stock de caractères : malade d?émotion, il dut s?aliter et c?est son frère qui écrivit sous sa dictée le Mémoire sur les hiéroglyphes, qui, lithographié fut envoyé au secrétaire général de l?Académie des inscriptions et belles-lettres. Lu en séance le 17 septembre 1822, il fut publié en octobre de la même année dans le Journal des Savants, sous le titre de Lettre à M. Dacier, et fit l?objet d?un tiré-à-part chez Firmin Didot, devenu presque introuvable (in-8, de 52 pages et 4 planches). C?est ce mémoire complété par des additions et précisions qui forment le noyau de ce «Précis» marquant la naissance de l?égyptologie scientifique.» (L … [Click Below for Full Description]

PÉRON, Pierre François.
Paris: Brissot-Thivars, Libraire, & Bossange Frères, 1824. 2 volumes, octavo (200 x 122 mm). Contemporary patterned boards, rebacked to style with tan calf, titles to red morocco label to spines in gilt, spines tooled in gilt in compartments, edges speckled red. Short closed tear to stub of map at p. 59 of vol. II. Touch of wear to tips, a couple of small scratches to covers, foxing to contents; a very good copy indeed. With 4 engraved folding maps and 2 engraved folding plates, lithographed by Godefroy Engelmann. First edition of Péron's narrative of his extensive travels in the Pacific carrying sealskins and furs from the Northwest American coast to China. Péron (1769-1846) was marooned for three years between 1792 and 1795 on New Amsterdam Island. He was rescued by Captain Thomas Hadley on the Ceres in late 1795 and arrived at Sydney on 23 January. He then joined the crew of the Otter of Boston, captained by Ebenezer Dorr, as chief officer. Also aboard the ship was Scottish reform politician Thomas Muir (1765-1799), who used the ship to escape the British settlement at Sydney Cove. The Otter was the first American ship to enter the Spanish held Alta California waters and in December of 1796 visited and traded with the Hawaiian islands. This edition is uncommon institutionally, with just six copies traced in the UK. Forbes 585; Hill 1330; Sabin 61001; Wickersham 6623a. [Attributes: First Edition]

Philadelphia, 1824. Broadside, approx. 9½" x 7½", short breaks at the extremities, previous folds, very good. Signed in ink "Lobstein M.D." The prospectus notes that Lobstein has published a similar book in French which has been favorably reviewed in "many of the most reputable European Medical Journals," and he proposes to publish one in America "on good paper, in one octavo volume, and bound, containing about 120 pages. The subscription price is One Dollar a copy, to be paid when the work is delivered." The book was published the following year by the author himself, printed by R. Wright. Of this prospectus, only LC (formerly part of the James Madison Papers) in OCLC. Nor was Madison the only American President Lobstein sought as a subscriber. On August 9, 1824 he wrote to Thomas Jefferson, "I would be rewarded enough by the notable honor Your Excellency would do me in granting me this favor to allow me to send a copy of it to His Excellency as soon as it is printed, as a token of my sincere attachment and my profound respect for his person." And on March 19 of the following year Lobstein sent Jefferson a short note presenting the book.

Luigi ROSSINI (Ravenna 1790 - Roma 1875)
1824. LE ANTICHITA DEI CONTORNI DI ROMA OSSIA LE PIU FAMOSE CITTA DEL LAZIO L'opera viene pubblicata tra il 1824 e il 1826, divisa in quattro parti comprendenti le Antichità di Tivoli, di Cora, di Albano e Castel Gandolfo, di Preneste e del Tuscolo. La serie viene preceduta per la prima volta da un'introduzione storico-critica con la Spiegazione alle tavole, ed inserisce alcune tavole, eseguite a tratto, di piante e restauri con ricostruzioni di monumenti personalmente rilevati e misurati. Nel Discorso preliminare l'autore indica che lo scopo è quello di rivolgersi ad un più vasto pubblico di amatori e non quello di offrire un semplice strumento conoscitivo dei monumenti romani agli architetti. Nelle Antichità dei contorni di Roma, Rossini riunisce in un solo volume le analoghe vedute che Piranesi aveva pubblicato in tempi diversi, con l'intento di raccogliere in un'unica opera le antichità presenti nel Lazio meridionale. Nella raccolta si può notare come l'autore ricerchi un'aderenza formale allo stile piranesiano, che si riscontra nell'uso dei chiaroscuri fortemente accentuati, nei tagli delle inquadrature e nella scelta dei soggetti; anche nei frontespizi posti all'inizio di ogni sezione, i frammenti archeologici e gli elementi architettonici vengono disordinatamente ordinati all'interno della composizione. La maggior parte dei soggetti scelti, in particolare le vedute di Tivoli e dei Castelli Romani, non si distaccano dalla tradizione vedutistica dei secoli precedenti, punto di riferimento può essere stato l'incisore G. F. Gmelin che proprio agli inizi del XIX secolo, a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Première lettre conservée de Vigny à sa future épouse, accompagnée de très émouvantes notes du poète écrites à la mort de cette dernière. « Ne nous affligeons plus, chère Lydia, je vais tenter un nouvel effort pour mon bonheur ; après tant d'obstacles surmontés je ne serai pas arrêté au moment d'obtenir votre main[,] ce que je désire le plus au monde. Je vais écrire à ma mère, mais comme elle n'a pas le même cœur que moi pour vous, je ne lui dirai pas la dureté avec laquelle Mr votre père a refusé un mot d'écrit qui attestât la part que vous auriez à son héritage. Vous avez vu aussi qu'elle ignore que vous n'avez aucun revenu actuel. -- Il faut éviter de le lui faire savoir et que j'obtienne son consentement qu'elle a fait légaliser par devant notaire comme elle me l'a dit. Envoyez-moi donc comme nous avons dit la lettre que vous venez de recevoir je mettrai vos nègres en avant comme je pourrai. -- Il faudrait traduire seulement les lignes qui vous regardent, et dire si la moitié de ces pauvres noirs qui travaillent tant est à votre frère. -- Je ne dirai pas cela par exemple.

This popular book was first published in 1753. It went through six English editions, the final appearing in 1824. Based on the fourth London edition (1822), the American edition is enhanced by Hening's additions. According to Marvin, "'As a manual, this little book contains more law and more useful matter, than any one book of the same size which can be put into the hands of the student.' It is more extensive than Noy's Maxims, and 'draws so copiously from the common law reports and writers of the age of Elizabeth, and since that time, that it may be regarded as the accumulated spirit and wisdom of the great body of the English law.'"

Seaver, James E.
Canandaigua: J. D. Bemis & Co, 1824. Contemporary half calf and brown paper-covered boards. 16mo. (2), 189pp. First edition. Issue with separate copyright notice mounted to verso of title page. Lacking one section of the margin of pages 71-72 and 105-106 as well as the last page of the index (189). This is the biographical tale of Mrs. Jemison, who was taken from her Pennsylvania home by a raiding party of Native Americans and French during the French and Indian War in 1755. While most of her family was killed, she was adopted as a Seneca, and lived the rest of her life in Northern New York with a husband and family among the Seneca. Jemison told her story to minister James E. Seaver in 1823 and this first edition was published the following year. It proved enormously popular and went through some 30 editions. The binding is split and in two pieces. The first contains the front cover and first 46 pages of text. The second contains the spine, rear cover and rest of the text. There is some heavy staining to the first 36 pages of text. The rest of the text is good with some scattered spotting and staining and a few short creases and closed tears. The defective pages (71-71 & 105-6) have some text missing (more so pages 105-6). Xerox copies of these pages are supplied with this copy. There is a very faint ink name on the front flyleaf and on the first page of the narrative. The covers are chipped and worn with the boards poking through on the front cover.

A very good and wide-margined copy. ---- Ashworth, The face of the moon, Linda Hall, 15 - Lohrmann was a professional cartographer and surveyor who undertook a lunar map based on his own micrometric measurements. Using a small Fraunhofer refractor, he determined the exact position of a number of control points on the moon, from which the positions of all other lunar features could be determined. He divided his map into 25 sections, and in 1824 he published the first four of these sections, along with an explanation of his methods. Although he worked for sixteen more years, and finished drawing all the sections, Lohrmann never did publish the remainder of the atlas. Fortunately, his great successor Julius Schmidt undertook to have the drawings engraved, and the complete Lohrmann atlas finally saw the light in 1878. - Visit our website to see more images!

DUMAS, Alexandre.
Senza luogo nè data, fine XIX secolo, 1824. 6 pagine in-8, cucite entro astuccio in percallina rossa con dorso in pelle. Nella missiva autografa firmata ''A. Dumas'' il celebre letterato e drammaturgo francese scrive ad anonimo corrispondente ringraziandolo per una dedica ricevuta e auspicando un miglioramento della condizione femminile in Italia, sulla linea di quello già avvenuto in Europa. ''Monsieur, j'accepte avec le plus grand plaisir la dédicace que vous me faites l'honneur de m'envoyer''. Alexandre Dumas (1824-1895), figlio di Alexandre Dumas, come il padre, è stato un autore di grande successo ed è noto soprattutto per il suo romanzo ''La signora delle camelie'' a cui si ispira ''La Traviata'' di Giuseppe Verdi, e per sue opere teatrali ''Le Fils naturel'' e ''Un Père prodigue''. Questa missiva risulta particolarmente interessante poiché documento storico tangibile dell'attività di Dumas come portavoce delle cause particolari e degli avvenimenti incresciosi della società, soprattutto legati alla condizione femminile e dell'infanzia. Buon esemplare eccetto per strappo senza perdita di testo al primo foglio.. .

First visiting Iran in 1808 as secretary to Sir Harford Jones-Brydges, Morier had an extensive career in the country, and wrote several travel works of his experiences that were widely popular. This picaresque romance of Persian life was written after Morier retired from his diplomatic career in Iran.
