        Their Majesties King Rheo Rhio, Queen Tamehamalu, Madame Poki, of the Sandwich Islands and suite as they appeared at the Theatre Drury Lane, June 4th 1824

      London, 1824. Lithograph, 280 x 230mm., title caption, fine. Hawaiian Royalty at the opera. The Hawaiian royal family at the theatre, Drury Lane. The visit to England of the Hawaiian King and his young wife attracted much popular attention. Sadly, a month after their visit to the New Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, both contracted measles, and the twenty-two year old Queen, Kamamalu (transcribed as Tamehamulu at the time) died on 8 July, 1824. The King succumbed shortly afterwards.Only weeks before, King George IV had commanded that the Royal Box should be made available for their visit to the theatre, and the publicity handbills trumpeted the occasion. At the reception attended by 'upwards of 200 persons of first rank and fashion' held for them in May, it was recorded that 'His Majesty was dressed after the European fashion, but the Queen's attire was partly European, and partly in native costume. The Treasurer also was dressed in the full costume of his country.' (The Times, 31 May, 1824). On 31 May 'Their sable Majesties', with their suite, occupied the King's Box at the Theatre Royal in Covent Garden'. His Majesty, 'as regards appearance, need hardly give way to any potentate in Europe... Her Majesty the Queen is taller than her Royal spouse: but of good figure, and with a countenance by no means devoid of expression.' (The Times, 1 June, 1824). The following Friday, 4 June, the Royal Party attended the New Theatre Royal Drury Lane, where they watched the opera Rob Roy Macgregor, and Zoroaster, 'A New Grand Egyptian Tale of Enchantment'.By 8 July the Queen was dead, and the King was dying; her coffin lay in state and bore a large brass plaque upon which was engraved in Hawaiian, and in English: TAMEHAMALU Queen of the Sandwich Islands Departed this life in London, on the 8th July 1824 Aged 22 years (The Times, 13 July, 1824). The bodies of the royal pair were carried back to Hawaii on HMS Blonde in 1825.

        3 autograph letters signed to William Rathbone

      1824-1830 1824 - Buckingham, James Silk (1786-1855). Three autograph letters signed to William Rathbone (1787-1868). 10pp. total. London, Feb. 9, 1824; Dec. 22, 1828; and Dec. 14, 1830. Approx. 250 x 210 mm. Small lacuna in one letter where seal was broken (not affecting text), but very good. James Silk Buckingham, a British travel writer and social reformer, first came into public notice when he founded a newspaper in Calcutta and began publishing articles critical of the colonial government; this led to the government seizing Buckingham’s newspaper and expelling him from the country in 1823. On his return to England he established several newspapers devoted to politics and to news about Britain’s Eastern colonies, the most successful of these being the "Oriental Herald." After serving four years in Parliament, Buckingham left politics and traveled widely in the United States and Europe, publishing several books on his travels and establishing a career as a public lecturer. He was deeply interested in social reform, serving as president of the London Temperance League and developing a plan for the construction of model towns, which he described in his best-known work, National Evils and Practical Remedies (1849). Although never realized, Buckingham’s model town plan influenced the ideas of Ebenezer Howard, founder of the Garden City movement. The three letters we are offering here were all written to William Rathbone, member of a wealthy and prominent Liverpool family of merchants long associated with philanthropy and public service. Like Buckingham, Rathbone was interested in social reform, and Buckingham relied on Rathbone’s influence and financial support in promoting his newspapers, lectures and other ventures. In his letter of Feb. 9, 1824 Buckingham informs Rathbone of his plan to found a daily newspaper called "The Evening Chronicle," hoping that Rathbone would see fit to recommend it "to the principal Public Institutions at Liverpool, of which there must be so many to which a good London Evening Paper would be acceptable." In the Dec. 22, 1828 letter Buckingham describes his plan to give a series of lectures in Liverpool to promote free trade to China and India, and asks for Rathbone’s help in publicizing the lectures and securing a suitable venue. In his letter of Dec. 14, 1830 Buckingham discusses another upcoming lecture tour "on the Countries of the East" and "the India Question," which he proposed to begin in Liverpool "as the wealthiest, & most public spirited, and therefore the best to set an example."

        Chemical recreations: a series of amusing and instructive experiments, which may be performed easily, safely, and at little expense.

      12mo iv, [ii], 238 pp. With 6 plates. Original printed boards, soiled but in good condition, joints tender; plates and title page show some browning. Untrimmed and partially unopened. With the bookplate of the Essex Institute and the 1824 signature of F[rancis] Peabody. Third edition of this charming book intended for the instruction of young students. In addition to setting forth the basics of chemistry, compounds, and apparatus, it proposes a number of experiments to illustrate various techniques and processes. And wonderful are those experiments. For example, "Immerse a piece of gold – a coin will do – in a glass of mercury. After a few seconds, take it out: it will be apparently transformed into silver. Drop the silver-looking metal into a little diluted nitric acid." Another experiments shows how charcoal burns so brilliantly in oxygen, and how to produce carbonic acid. Make sure you have all the ingredients before starting you experiments!Griffin (1802-1877) was brought up as a bookseller and later became a chemist and publisher, chiefly interested in popularizing chemistry for a wider audience. "He devised many new and simple forms of chemical apparatus, and did much in introducing scientific methods into commercial processes" (DNB).

        Tamehameha 2d. His Majesty the King of the Sandwich Islands [and] Tamehamalu. Her Majesty the Queen of the Sandwich Islands

      London: J. Dickinson, 1824. Pair of lithograph portraits, with engraved titles, 290 x 250 mm and 330 x 245 mm respectively, on china paper mounted; in fine condition. The King and Queen of Hawaii, strikingly beautiful in London. This beautiful and moving pair of portraits depicts the handsome Hawaiian monarch and his queen during their famous visit to London in 1824 - the first Hawaiian royal visit overseas. Kamehameha II, as the name has since become standardised, or Liholiho Iolani as he was also known, was the son of the famous Kamehameha the Great and reigned in Hawaii from 1819. From the earliest days of his reign there was enormous change in the traditional ways of life, and he is generally seen as having personally begun the unravelling of the kapu system. He and his wife Kamamalu attracted great attention in London for their exotic splendour, helped by the regal bearing of the Queen who was six foot seven inches tall.Within days of Hayter drawing them, both the King and Queen had died of the measles, to which they had no resistance. Later that year, their bodies were taken back to Hawaii by the Blonde, captain George Byron, the cousin of the poet. Peter Buck called the special commissioning of this sad voyage "one of the most gracious acts that one country has ever extended to another". These fine lithographic portraits, drawn ?"on the stoneÕ by the artist himself, were printed by Hullmandel the famous London lithographic printers.

Six Months’ Residence and Travels in Mexico, London: John Murray, 1824. Octavo, first edition, pp. xii, 532, plus 15 aquatint plates (four hand-colored costume plates, 11 plates of landscape and seascape views), folding frontis (View of the City and Valley of Mexico), two folding maps, folding table (distances between cities and towns), contemporary marbled paper-covered boards half-bound in black calf, rebacked with dark green calf with a lighter green label, gilt lettering and rules. Very good with former owner’s name inked onto free front endpaper, boards rubbed at extremities, scattered light to moderate foxing. See Sabin 9140, Abbey 666, Palau 37059. Sabin says, “This author was the first English traveler in Mexico since Father Gage, in 1640, to write an account of his travels,” but this is open to question. In any case, the illustration is important and interesting, showing a plan for the City of Mexico based on the map made by Garcia Conde. Bullock was certainly an unusual travel writer, as not only does he describe the daily life and interesting features of the country, but also how he took control of a silver mine in Themascaltepec. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 552. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Travel & Places; Mexico; 19th century; Antiquarian & Rare. Inventory No: 50653.

        Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes ... sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goélette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804

      Paris: Arthus Bertrand, 1824. Four volumes, octavo, with a frontispiece portrait of Péron; and a folio atlas, containing a double-page map of Australia, seven full-page charts, two fine double-page views (one of Sydney), 27 superb handcoloured engraved plates and 31 uncoloured plates; the Atlas with especially good margins, most leaves uncut at the lower margin; an excellent set with the four text volumes in contemporary French binding of full polished calf, sides bordered and spines panelled in blind and gilt; Atlas in matching half calf and marbled boards. Second edition, revised after the Uranie voyage, with new plates. The significant and rare second edition, extensively altered, of the official account of the important Baudin voyage to Australia and the Pacific. This revised version of the narrative is notably scarce on the market, rarer than the first by a factor of perhaps ten or more. It is of particular interest and significance for the Australian collector. Among the twenty-three engravings added to this edition are four new portraits of aborigines to extend the beautiful series familiar to us from the first edition. There is also a most important engraved sheet of music, the first notation of any indigenous Australian music and including - wonderfully - a rendering of the Aboriginal cooee call (Cou-hé, described as the "Cri de Ralliement").In its more complete, second edition form the pictorial impact of the Atlas Historique is even more apparent than in the original edition: the wonderful coloured plates include some of the most beautiful early views of Australia; while the superb series of portraits of Aborigines represents the most compassionate yet honest portrayal of the displaced natives to be seen in any of the early voyage accounts.Many of the exceptional illustrations are by the remarkable artist Charles-Alexandre Lesueur: 'Lesueur's scientific work runs parallel to artistic work of great importance. He was at one and the same time draughtsman and painter, naturalist and landscape artist. His talent was recognised in France in his own lifetime, by the award... of the silver medal of the Société des Beaux-Arts...' (Baudin in Australian Waters, p. 26).The text for this edition was extensively revised by Louis de Freycinet himself after his return from the Uranie voyage. His changes from the first edition include an implicit abandonment of French territorial ambitions in Australia: the first edition of the book had included a series of maps of the Australian coastline with French place names, which were quietly dropped from this second edition. The revised smaller map of the continent now has most of its names in English.

        Chemical recreations: a series of amusing and instructive experiments, which may be performed easily, safely, and at little expense...

      Richard Griffin & Co., et al. 1824 With 6 plates. Original printed boards, soiled but in good condition, joints tender; plates and title page show some browning. Untrimmed and partially unopened. With the bookplate of the Essex Institute and the 1824 signature of F[rancis] Peabody. Third edition of this charming book intended for the instruction of young students. In addition to setting forth the basics of chemistry, compounds, and apparatus, it proposes a number of experiments to illustrate various techniques and processes. And wonderful are those experiments. For example, ?Immerse a piece of gold ? a coin will do ? in a glass of mercury. After a few seconds, take it out: it will be apparently transformed into silver. Drop the silver - looking metal into a little diluted nitric acid....? Another experiments shows how charcoal burns so brilliantly in oxygen, and how to produce carbonic acid. Make sure you have all the ingredients before starting you experiments! Griffin (1802 - 1877) was brought up as a bookseller and later became a chemist and publisher, chiefly interested in popularizing chemistry for a wider audience. ?He devised many new and simple forms of chemical apparatus, and did much in introducing scientific methods into commercial processes? (DNB).

        Lunga, importante lettera autografa dell'architetto Lorenzo Nottolini (Capannori, 1787 - 1851) indirizzata all'Avv. Luigi Matteucci in data 23 novembre 1824.

      Lunga lettera in formato cm.24,7x18,7, compilata su due di quattro facciate, rispettivamente su 28 e 29 righe, indirizzata, come compare dall'indirizzo alla quarta facciata "A Sua Eccellenza il Sig. Avvocato Cavaliere Luigi Matteucci Ministro Plenipotenziario di S.M. il Re di Francia". La lettera è spedita da Lucca in data 23 novembre 1824, e presenta firma chiara ed estesa. La missiva riveste notevole interesse in quanto si riferisce ad un momento cruciale del progetto inerente il nuovo acquedotto per la città di Lucca, ancora oggi esistente e noto proprio sotto il nome di "Acquedotto del Nottolini", progetto che, per la sua ampiezza, coinvolgeva direttamente sia il Granducato di Toscana che il Ducato di Lucca. In una grafìa assai minuta ma ben intellegibile, il Nottolini scrive al Matteucci di essersi recato a Pisa, dove Pazzini sta ultimando il lavoro commissionato a lui ed allo stesso Nottolini da parte della Deputazione Toscana, ma lamenta vigorosamente l'opposizione nel Ducato di Lucca, segnatamente del Primo Ministro Ascanio Mansi (Lucca, 1773 - 1840). Questi si rifiuta di concedere i pochi fondi necessari ad ultimare lavori di livellazione, ed ha inoltre nominato Consiglieri di Stato Biagio Gigliotti, Pietro Cenami e l'Avvocato Pellegrini, anche quest'ultimo contrario al progetto. Tali nomine sono avvenute proprio in concomitanza con l'incarico ricevuto poco prima dal Matteucci, quello cioè di ambasciatore del Granducato di Toscana a Parigi presso la corte francese, e ciò ha privato in tutta evidenza il Nottolini del principale sostenitore del suo progetto idrico. Nottolini riferisce poi di un pranzo tenutosi alcuni giorni prima a Pisa tra Leopoldo II di Lorena e Carlo Lodovico di Borbone, in cui si sarebbe manifestata l'insofferenza del Duca di Lucca verso il Mansi stesso. Comunica infine che l'intrapresa incontra lo sfavore anche del Matematico Paoli, mentre è ben visto dal nuovo direttore del Catasto, Frullani. Lettera importante, accorata, che fornisce un quadro assai nitido delle grandi difficoltà incontrate dal Nottolini nella realizzazione del celebre Acquedotto. "Lorenzo Nottolini (Capannori, 6 maggio 1787 ? Lucca, 12 settembre 1851) fu un celebre architetto e ingegnere, attivo soprattutto a Lucca, e noto per i suoi lavori nel campo della regimazione idrica. A lui si deve lo stato attuale della celebratissima piazza dell'Anfiteatro, tra le più frequentate attrazioni turistiche di Lucca. Nottolini nasce da Gian Domenico Nottolini e Maria Domenica Orsolini, il 6 maggio 1787, in una numerosa famiglia (sei figli) stabilitasi a Segromigno (Zone), oggi frazione di Capannori, quindi nel territorio delle cosiddette sei miglia allora amministrativamente parte integrante della città di Lucca. La circostanza di essere rimasto orfano di padre in età giovanile e di essersi quindi trasferito in città presso uno zio prete gli facilitò l'accesso al prestigioso Seminario Arcivescovile, dove si interessò soprattutto agli studi tecnici. Al Seminario si trovavano allora eccellenti maestri in queste discipline, ed il giovane Nottolini si mise presto in luce. Nello stesso seminario tre dei cinque fratelli maturarono una vocazione sacerdotale, e l'unica sorella divenne in seguito monaca. In seguito si iscrisse all'Università di Lucca, seguendo, nella facoltà fisico matematica, il corso per divenire agrimensore. Nel 1807 uno dei suoi maestri, Giovanni Lazzarini, era al servizio della allora Principessa di Lucca e Piombino, Elisa Baciocchi, sorella di Napoleone Bonaparte. Oberato di lavoro, richiese di poter assumere il ventenne Nottolini come assistente al cantiere della Villa Reale di Marlia. L'incarico durò diversi anni, fino al completamento dei lavori. Nel 1810 terminava gli studi ottenendo il diploma di agrimensore. Fu subito assunto nella pubblica amministrazione come assistente dell'ingegnere capo. Ma solo un anno dopo Nottolini otteneva una borsa di studio accordatagli dal Principe Felice Baciocchi. Poté così frequentare il corso di Architettura presso l'Accademia delle Belle Arti di Firenze, dove conobbe Canova. L'esperienza fiorentina non fu molto felice ed il Nottolini decise di spostarsi a Roma presso l'Accademia di San Luca. Dal 1812 al 1817 fu quasi costantemente a Roma dove oltre allo studio dei monumenti, che informarono profondamente la sua visione neoclassica dell'architettura, poté fare delle conoscenze molto utili al proseguimento della carriera in quei tempi di grandi rivolgimenti. Tra l'altro ebbe modo di presentarsi a Maria Luisa di Borbone - Spagna per la quale progettò il rifacimento della facciata di un palazzo. Maria Luisa di Borbone, in seguito al Congresso di Vienna, venne investita del titolo di Duchessa di Lucca e ritenne di nominare proprio il Nottolini Architetto Regio della Casa Reale e Corte (1818). Due anni dopo ricevette anche la nomina ad Ingegnere del Consiglio delle Acque, Strade e Macchie per il primo Dipartimento. Per circa trent'anni fu il principale architetto del Ducato di Lucca, realizzando numerosi lavori e rilevando e studiando capillarmente i problemi idraulici, maturando una notevole esperienza sul campo. In città il suo lavoro più noto è lo svuotamento delle rovine dell'Anfiteatro romano per la realizzazione di un mercato, oggi la Piazza dell'Anfiteatro o Piazza del Mercato. L'antico Anfiteatro, nel corso dei secoli, era stato completamente invaso dalle costruzioni, anche nello spazio destinato all'arena (un esempio di questo tipo di reimpiego è ancora conservato a Firenze con le Torri dei Peruzzi). Grazie al lavoro di Nottolini, la piazza ellittica, con le case che ricalcano il giro delle fondazioni delle tribune, in riuscitissimo equilibrio fra la freddezza neoclassica dell'imitazione dell'antico e il fascino della rovina di ispirazione romantica, hanno fatto dell'Anfiteatro, una volta tanto meritatamente, una delle mete più frequentate dal turismo. Altra impresa di grande rilevanza è l'Acquedotto (1823 - 1851), opera ancora esistente nella sua mo

The Lord Dalhousie provenance has an additional collection attraction beyond the obvious importance and rarity of these volumes relating to Canada's early history. Dalhousie is considered the first patron of the arts in Canada. This is supported by an exhibition organized by René Villeneuve, Associate Curator, Canadian Art, at the National Gallery of Canada - Lord Dalhousie: Art Patron and Collector 15 Feb 2008 - 11 May 2008. George Ramsay, ninth Earl of Dalhousie, served as Lieutenant- Governor of Nova Scotia (1816-1820), then as Governor-in-Chief of British North America (1820-1828). During his twelve years in Canada, Dalhousie both commissioned and collected a stunning variety of artworks. Featuring some 135 works from his collection, this exhibition consists of an array of watercolours and wash drawings, engravings and lithographs, silhouettes, architectural drawings, models, and decorative pieces, all evidence of Dalhousie's unique point of view as patron and collector, his diverse interests, and his influence on the development of art in Canada. These now rare and historically important Canadian printed newspapers include many laws and legal issues reported for the first time publicly relating primarily to Lower Canada. Add to this, the excellent provenance of Dalhousie who as the Governor -in-Chief of Canada (1819-28) the top "law maker" in Canada. A beautiful set in very good+ condition!George Ramsay (1770-1838), 9th Earl of Dalhousie, Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia and subsequently Governor-in-Chief of Canada (1819-28), entered the 3rd Dragoon Guards in 1788; in 1794 he became Lieutenant-colonel of the 2nd Foot; in 1809 he attained the rank of Major-general, and in 1830 that of general. He fought throughout the Revolutionary and Peninsular Wars, and was present at the battle of Waterloo after which he began a career in administration.In 1816 he was appointed lieutenant-governor of Nova Scotia; and from 1819 to 1828 he was governor-in-chief of Canada.Known for his authoritarian views, Dalhousie clashed with the French Canadian majority led by Louis-Joseph Papineau. He was recalled in 1828, and a British parliamentary committee was formed to deal with the Canadian situation. During his tenure he founded Dalhousie College (later Dalhousie University, 1863) in 1818 and he was instrumental in founding in 1824 the Quebec Literary and Historical Society, the first learned society in Canada. After leaving Canada he was appointed commander-in-chief in India in 1829; and in 1830 he was elected captain-general of the Royal Company of Archers, the king's bodyguard for Scotland. He died at Dalhousie Castle on March 21, 1838.It is interesting to note that the start date of the newspaper sequences coincide with Dalhousie's decision to take a leave of absence. The permission for this leave was granted in 1823, but he postponed it until June 1824. It is possible therefore that his subscription was taken out initially to keep him abreast of political developments in Canada while he was away from the country, and they were thus an important source of political intelligence to him during this period.W.
