        Promenade aux Alpes.

      1824 - In-4 de 1 titre lithographié, III-(1)-108 pp., demi-basane verte à petits coins, dos lisse orné (reliure de l'époque). Ouvrage rare. Récit d'une excursion entreprise du 13 juillet au 16 septembre 1824. 1 titre-frontispice (lithographie coloriée), 4 planches de costumes en lithographies coloriées, 9 planches de paysages lithographiés en noir, 4 cartes dépliantes gravées et rehaussées à l'aquarelle, 1 planche de musique. Les illustrations reproduisent les croquis pris d'après nature. Mais ces illustrations ne sont pas les mêmes dans tous les exemplaires, et Snoeck nous donne l'explication de ce fait anormal dans son autobiographie. Faisant allusion aux déboires financiers provoqués par l'édition de son volume, il écrit : « Plusieurs de mes camarades et amis me tentèrent et me forcèrent en quelque sorte de publier ce journal : de sottise en sottise j'y joignis 6 cartes que je traçai moi-même d'après celles de l'illustre H. Keller de Zurich, 40 vues et 22 planches de costumes coloriés. Je me mis à l'oeuvre ; j'eus pour souscripteurs quelques amis, ayant commencé l'ouvrage, je ne voulus plus reculer. Je fus enfoncé d'une belle façon : les souscriptions couvrirent à peine le coût des cartes. C'est là la cause que peu de ces ouvrages existent au complet : quelques soucripteurs ont soigneusement gardé leur livraisons, d'autres les ont perdues ou laissé égarer des feuilles. Toutefois vous pouvez croire que pas vingt exemplaires existent au complet. Du surplus, des textes, lithographies, etc. j'ai formé des exemplaires peu volumineux ; je les ai échangés en partie contre d'autres ouvrages de littérature, d'art, etc. ». Quelques rousseurs. A échappé à la Bibliographie de la Suisse et à Perret, Guide des livres de Montagne. May de Rudder, Promenade aux Alpes de C.A. Snoeck, in Revue d'alpinisme, Bruxelles, 1941.

        The Private Journal of Captain G.F. Lyon of H.M.S. Hecla, during the Recent Voyage of Discovery Under Captain Parry.

      1824 - 8vo. Contemporary English half calf gilt over marbled boards, spine gilt in compartments, gilt morocco lettering-piece in one, others decorated in gilt and blind, marbled endpapers, speckled edges; pp. [iii]-xiii, [1 (directions for placing the plates)], 468; engraved frontispiece by Edward Finden after Lyon, 6 engraved plates by Finden after Lyon, one engraved folding map by J. Walker, printed music in the text; apart from light brownig and occasional spotting to plates, as usual, a good copy. First edition. Lyon accompanied the second Parry expedition in search of a North West Passage as captain of Hecla (1821-1823; Parry commanded the sistership Fury), and his Private Journal of the voyage supplemented Parry's official account of the voyage, Journal of a Second Voyage for the Discovery of a North-West Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific (London: 1824). The expedition proved of importance for the successful cooperation between the Europeans and the Inuit encountered; indeed, by the aid of a sketch map of the area Parry discovered from one Iligliuk a possible route for the Passage. Lyon's curiosity led him to observe with great attention the habits and character traits of the different tribes of Esquimaux and the Private Journal offers an excellent description of this people, as Field states: 'Almost the entire volume is devoted to the narration of the peculiarities of the Aborigines of the Arctic regions. Captain Lyon's curiosity led him to observe with great attention, the habits of life, and traits of character of the different tribes of Esquimaux, which his humanity, and good management attracted to his winter quarters. They built their villages near his ships, and permitted a closer familiarity, than any other of the Arctic voyagers was able to attain. His narrative, therefore, abounds with incidents of their intercourse, and curious anecdotes of Esquimaux life'. This work is known with two settings of the preliminary leaves; in one there is no half-title, the printer's name appears on the verso of the title, and the preliminary matter is paginated to xi, followed by an unnumbered page with the 'Directions .' and in the other (as here) the imprint is on the verso of the half-title (that of the title is blank) and the pagination runs to xiii, followed by an unnumbered page of 'Directions .'. - There are variants with different compositions of preliminaries; a half-title does not seem to have been issued. Arctic Bibliography 10531; Brunet III, col. 1254; Chavanne 1442; Hill I, p. 186; Lowndes p. 1422; Sabin 42853; Staton and Tremaine 1289; cf.: Field 961 (London: 1825 ed.).

In all, a lovely and evocative period piece.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Jena, 9. XII. 1824.

      1824. 4 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 4to. An eine namentlich nicht genannte Gräfin: "Zürnen Sie nicht, theuerste Freundinnen, dass ich so spät erst komme, Ihnen für Ihr Andenken [...] meinen innigsten Dank zu sagen. Unter allen Geschenken, die ich an diesem Tage erhielt, war mir wohl das Ihrige das ausgezeichnetste und erfreulichste. Ihre holde Gestalt erkannte ich sogleich, und es soll bei mir in gutem Andenken bleiben. Ich bewundere die Zartheit und Geschicklichkeit der Künstlerin. Freunde und Freundinnen haben einst unterlassen mich an diesem Tage zu besuchen, und die holde Alwins brachte mir einen Blumenstrauss der von den Händen der Gräfin selbst geflochten zu seyn schien. Von den Gedichten will ich weiter nichts sagen; doch waren sie recht herzlich [...]". Auf dem 2. Blatt zwei Gedichte "Elysium" und "Der Hausberg". - Nach einer humanistischen Schulbildung studierte Knebel Jura in Halle und trat 1765 in das Regiment des Prinzen von Preußen in Potsdam ein. 1773 quittierte er den Militärdienst und wirkte 1774-80 als Erzieher der Prinzen Constantin und Karl August in Weimar. 1774 lernte er Goethe kennen; er war einer der ersten engen Freunde Goethes in Weimar und wurde von diesem als "Urfreund" bezeichnet. Seit 1780 lebte er, inzwischen Major, aber ohne dienstliche Verpflichtungen, abwechselnd in Ansbach, Jena und Weimar, nach der Heirat mit der Sängerin Luise von Rudorf in Ilmenau und seit 1805 endgültig in Jena. Knebel übersetzte aus dem Lateinischen und Italienischen, übertrug u.a. "Die Natur der Dinge" von Lukrez, und verfasste Gedichte sowie Epigramme, darunter "Lebensblüthen" (1826).

        ATLAS DE L’OCEAN PACIFIQUE.

      St. Petersburg: Par Ordre de Sa Majesté Impériale, 1824. - Engraved titlepage; dedication leaf; and fifteen double- page engraved maps by S. Froloff, six double-page, nine single-page; some plates with more than one map, some with inserts, one with a folding extension, all dated 1824. Recent three-quarter red morocco and cloth boards, gilt ruled and lettered. Contemporary presentation inscription on front endpaper and scattered contemporary ink annotations. Expertly remargined at plate fore- edges, not affecting map images. Light tanning at edges, otherwise internally clean. Near fine. The very rare first French edition of this great atlas of the South Pacific, the first of its type and one of the most important of all Pacific atlases, with a superb presentation from Krusenstern to Admiral Count Login Hayden. A companion atlas to the North Pacific was published some three years later. Dedicated to Tsar Alexander, this magnificent atlas by the great Russian explorer and cartographer Krusenstern is a great rarity in either its original edition in Russian or in this first French edition of the same year. The charts are drawn on a large, detailed scale, and represent the first systematic attempt to chart the islands of the Pacific, including a a map of the whole of New Zealand and most of the eastern coast of Australia, with a detailed plan of Sydney Harbor. The first chart is a general map of the Southern Pacific, showing discovery dates and including, in this particular copy, some supplementary contemporary handwritten information dated up to 1825. It covers the ocean from Borneo to Cape Horn, showing all of Australia, the Solomon Islands, Polynesia, New Zealand, the Galapagos Islands and the western coast of South America. Krusenstern compiled these maps from information gathered on his world voyage of 1803-1806 and from earlier and subsequent voyages. "Krusenstern is the Hydrographer of the Pacific It is difficult to speak in sufficiently high terms of this noble work Krusenstern embodied everything that had previously been observed in the Pacific, and in the most masterly manner he has reconciled the discordant materials at his command, and placed its hydrography upon an entirely new basis" - A.G. Findlay, quoted by Forbes. The fifteen maps included are as follows: 1) CARTE GÉNÉRALE DE L'OCÉAN PACIFIQUE HEMISPHERE AUSTRAL [double-page]. 2) CARTE DE LA NOUVELLE GUINÉE DU DÉTROIT DE TORRÈS. - PLAN DE PORT DORY [double-page]. 3) CARTE DE LA MER DU CORAIL [double-page]. 4) CARTE DE LA CÔTE SUD EST DE LA NOUVELLES-GALLES MÉRIDIONALE. - PLAN DE PORT JACKSON. 5) CARTE DE LA TERRE DE VAN DIEMEN ET DU DÉTROIT DE BASS. - PLAN DU PORT PHILIP. 6) CARTE DES ILES DE L'AMIRAUTÉ. - CARTE DE LA NOUVELLE IRLANDE. - PLAN DU PORT GOWER. 7) CARTE DES ISLES DE LA NOUVELLE BRETAGNE. - CART DE L'ARCHIPEL DE SANTA CRUZ. - PLAN DE L'ANSE BYRON. 8) CARTE DE L'ARCHIPEL DE LA LOUISIADE. - CARTE DE L'ARCHIPEL DE MENDANA. - PLAN DU PORT CHICHAGOFF. 9) CARTE SYSTEMATIQUE DE L'ARCHIPEL DES ISLES DE SALOMON. - PLAN DE LA BAIE CHOISEUL. - PLAN DU PORT PRASLIN [double-page]. 10) CARTE DE L'ARCHIPEL DES NOUVLES.

        An exposé of the conduct of the Victualling Board to the Honorable Basil Cochrane, as contractor and agent victualler to His Majesty's ships on the East India station. To which are annexed, proofs of the zeal and exertions of Mr. Cochrane for the public service.

      London: printed by J. Davy 1824 - 8vo., (7) + vi = vii + (1) + 120pp., including the half-title, the text folowed by 5 large folding tables of contract accounts, contingent accounts, abstracts, and disbursements, original boards with printed label (slightly defective) on upper cover, printed spine label, head of spine chipped, upper joint splitting, but a fine, crisp, presentation copy inscribed in ink by Cochrane 'Robert Wm. Newman Esq. M.P.> (1776-1848), then the M.P. for Exeter. First and only edition and seemingly of great rarity (a copy in the BL but not found elsewhere by COPAC or OCLC). Basil Cochrane (1753-1826) was a Scottish civil servant, businessman, inventor, and wealthy nabob of early 19th century England. The sixth son of Scottish nobleman and politician Thomas Cochrane, 8th Earl of Dundonald, Basil Cochrane at the age of sixteen (in 1769) was given a place with the East India Company in Madras. In 1792 he took over supply contracts for the British navy in India from his brother John, who had held them since 1790. The demand for provisions was so great that Basil had flour mills and bakeries built at Calcutta and Madras to fulfil his contracts. He returned to England in 1806 having accumulated an enormous fortune (he had held contracts over the years totalling £1,418,236) but spent the next 13 years disputing his accounts with the Victualling Board. After Cochrane's accounts were finally settled in 1819, he published several pamphlets criticizing the Victualling Board's conduct towards him and calling for reforms in the process.

The Letters> range over all the issues of the day: the character of the Irish government, policing, the Irish gentry, the state of religion, the administration of justice, the increase in population, public education, the Protestant Bible Societies, Catholic emancipation and Papal influence, selective disfranchisement, and legal provision for the poor. James Warren Doyle (1786-1834), the young Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin, was a much respected and influential political activist. * The initials 'J.K.L.' were a semi-anonymous shorthand for J>ames [bishop of] K>ildare & L>eighlin.

Military actions, camp adventures, voyages to Caribbean islands, depredations (including unceasing "Musquitoes"), meetings with Bolivar, etc., are all described in fascinating detail.

        Zes maanden in Amerika.Haarlem, Kruseman and Tjeenk Willink, 1875. 2 volumes. Large 8vo (25 x 16.5 cm). With 10 tinted lithograph plates by "Emrik & Binger", and 27 wood-engraved illustrations by Édouard Vermorcken in text. Contemporary half brown roan (sheepskin).

      Tiele, Bibl. 1064; not in Eberstadt; Sabin. First edition of a travel book on North America by Martinus Cohen Stuart (1824-1878). Cohen Stuart, a prominent minister of the Remonstrant Church, visited the United States in 1875 at the invitation of the Evangelical Alliance, an international Protestant missionary society. With contagious enthusiasm he gives a very positive depiction of American society. He praises the United States for its democratic foundations and the advancing ecclesiastical and social state of affairs. In vivid imagery, interspersed with lithographed plates and small wood-engraved illustrations, he expresses his interests in its people, cities and countryside. In describing the cities, public buildings and places of interest especially, he shows himself a keen observer, though he does not neglect to stress their historic Dutch roots. The plates are by the leading lithographers Emerik and Binger in Haarlem, and the wood-engravings finely executed by Édouard Vermorcken (1820-1906) of Antwerp and Brussels. Binding worn, front hinge of the first volume damaged at the top. Slightly browned throughout with some occasional stains. Otherwise a good copy.

        ATLAS DE L'OCEAN PACIFIQUE

      St. Petersburg: Par Ordre de Sa Majesté Impériale, 1824. Engraved titlepage; dedication leaf; and fifteen double- page engraved maps by S. Froloff, six double-page, nine single-page; some plates with more than one map, some with inserts, one with a folding extension, all dated 1824. Recent three-quarter red morocco and cloth boards, gilt ruled and lettered. Contemporary presentation inscription on front endpaper and scattered contemporary ink annotations. Expertly remargined at plate fore-edges, not affecting map images. Light tanning at edges, otherwise internally clean. Near fine. The very rare first French edition of this great atlas of the South Pacific, the first of its type and one of the most important of all Pacific atlases, with a superb presentation from Krusenstern to Admiral Count Login Hayden. A companion atlas to the North Pacific was published some three years later. Dedicated to Tsar Alexander, this magnificent atlas by the great Russian explorer and cartographer Krusenstern is a great rarity in either its original edition in Russian or in this first French edition of the same year. The charts are drawn on a large, detailed scale, and represent the first systematic attempt to chart the islands of the Pacific, including a a map of the whole of New Zealand and most of the eastern coast of Australia, with a detailed plan of Sydney Harbor. The first chart is a general map of the Southern Pacific, showing discovery dates and including, in this particular copy, some supplementary contemporary handwritten information dated up to 1825. It covers the ocean from Borneo to Cape Horn, showing all of Australia, the Solomon Islands, Polynesia, New Zealand, the Galapagos Islands and the western coast of South America. Krusenstern compiled these maps from information gathered on his world voyage of 1803-1806 and from earlier and subsequent voyages. "Krusenstern is the Hydrographer of the Pacific…It is difficult to speak in sufficiently high terms of this noble work…Krusenstern…embodied everything that had previously been observed in the Pacific, and in the most masterly manner he has reconciled the discordant materials at his command, and placed its hydrography upon an entirely new basis" - A.G. Findlay, quoted by Forbes. The fifteen maps included are as follows: 1) CARTE GÉNÉRALE DE L'OCÉAN PACIFIQUE HEMISPHERE AUSTRAL [double-page]. 2) CARTE DE LA NOUVELLE GUINÉE DU DÉTROIT DE TORRÈS. - PLAN DE PORT DORY [double-page]. 3) CARTE DE LA MER DU CORAIL [double-page]. 4) CARTE DE LA CÔTE SUD EST DE LA NOUVELLES-GALLES MÉRIDIONALE. - PLAN DE PORT JACKSON. 5) CARTE DE LA TERRE DE VAN DIEMEN ET DU DÉTROIT DE BASS. - PLAN DU PORT PHILIP. 6) CARTE DES ILES DE L'AMIRAUTÉ. - CARTE DE LA NOUVELLE IRLANDE. - PLAN DU PORT GOWER. 7) CARTE DES ISLES DE LA NOUVELLE BRETAGNE. - CART DE L'ARCHIPEL DE SANTA CRUZ. - PLAN DE L'ANSE BYRON. 8) CARTE DE L'ARCHIPEL DE LA LOUISIADE. - CARTE DE L'ARCHIPEL DE MENDANA. - PLAN DU PORT CHICHAGOFF. 9) CARTE SYSTEMATIQUE DE L'ARCHIPEL DES ISLES DE SALOMON. - PLAN DE LA BAIE CHOISEUL. - PLAN DU PORT PRASLIN [double-page]. 10) CARTE DE L'ARCHIPEL DES NOUVLES.

The CARTE DE LA MER DU CORAIL is dedicated to Matthew Flinders, and indeed the CARTE GÉNÉRALE bears the name "Australia," which was the name championed by Flinders and which appeared on his map of Australia published ten years earlier. Despite its importance to the cartographic history of Australia, the bibliographer Ferguson did not know of the Russian nor French editions of the atlas until he had started work on the second volume of his BIBLIOGRAPHY, where in the addenda to Volume I, he describes only a French reissue of 1835, which he could cite only from an entry in a London bookseller's catalogue of 1940: "This atlas, the first attempt at a Systematic Cartographical representation of the islands of the Pacific, is of the greatest rarity. The charts are drawn on a large scale and give far more detail than those of Arrowsmith and Admiral Espinosa…" (Ferguson 1130a). Only in the 1986 volume of ADDENDA is reference finally made to this first French edition (972a; still with no copy seen). Phillips and Lada- Morcarski likewise do not note this edition. This copy contains a presentation inscription from Krusenstern to the Admiral Login Hayden, the victor at the Battle of Navarino and the future military governor of Kronstadt and Reval-Tallinn. Hayden was Dutch but offered his services to Catherine the Great in 1795, the last year of her reign, and by 1826 commanded the Russian fleet in the Mediterranean. In 1827, he defeated the Turko-Egyptian fleet at Navarino during the Greek War of Independence, and was later made Admiral and military governor by Nicholas I along the Baltic Sea. A excellent copy of an extremely rare atlas, with an outstanding association. ARCTIC BIBLIOGRAPHY 9375. FERGUSON 972a. FORBES HAWAII 581. HOWES K270 (ref). LADA-MOCARSKI 91 (ref). SABIN 38329.

        Recollections of John Thurtell, who was executed at Hertford ... for murdering Mr. W. Weare ...

      London : Knight &​ Lacey, 1824. Octavo, recent half black morocco over marbled boards, gilt, spine with raised bands lettered in gilt, modern marbled endpapers, frontispiece engraving, A correct view of the execution, taken on the spot by an eminent artist(as called for by Ferguson), with a second frontispiece engraving (apparently not present in any institutional copies), Elstree Churchyard and Weare's grave; this additional engraving bears the imprint of B. Bensley, Bolt Court, Fleet Streeton the verso, but its format and framing are identical to the main frontispiece; 44 pp; occasional spotting, page 44 with a few ink marks, else a very good copy. Ferguson, 963. This work was published as an appendix to Pierce Egan's contemporary account of the trial of John Thurtell and Joseph Hunt for the murder of William Weare. In 1823, in what was known at the time as the Elstree Murder or the Radlett Murder, John Thurtell murdered solicitor William Weare near Radlett in Hertfordshire, in a dispute over a gambling debt. Thurtell and his accomplices buried Weare's corpse near Elstree, a neighbouring village. Following their arrest and trial, Thurtell and one of his accomplices, Joseph Hunt, were found guilty of murder. Thurtell's punishment was execution by hanging followed by dissection of his body. Hunt was also sentenced to death but this was commuted to transportation to New South Wales for life. Hunt was eventually emancipated and became a police constable in Sydney, where he died in 1861. Numerous works about the murder of William Weare were published in 1824 and are listed in Ferguson (under Hunt, Joseph: Ferguson, 954-970). The copy ofRecollections of John Thurtell which we offer here appears to be an uncommon variant with two engraved plates by Bensley. The extra plate, depicting the Elstree Churchyard, does not appear to have been issued separately and it would seem to have been produced especially for this publication, although not included in most copies. Three copies (with only one engraved plate) are recorded in Australian collections (National Library of Australia; University of Melbourne Library; State Library of New South Wales).

        Ordinances and decrees of the consultation, provisional government of Texas and the convention, which assembled at Washington March 1, 1836. By order of the secretay[!] of State. Houston, National Banner Office (printed by Niles & Company). 1838. 8vo. Modern brown half morocco (SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE, London).

      Sabin 94959; Streeter, Americana 363; Streeter, Texas 246; WorldCat (5 or 6 copies). Rare first edition of a collection of the ordinances and decrees declaring Texas's right to secede from Mexico and setting up an interim government and its laws. Texas had been a Spanish territory and since 1824 part of the Mexican Federation, but large numbers of immigrants from the United States had settled there. When Mexico established its independence from Spain (1821-1824) the immigrants' already uneasy relations with the government authorities worsened. In 1835, the Mexican president, General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, abolished the 1824 federal constitution and assumed greater centralized powers. The present book opens with the 7 November 1835 decree in which "the people of Texas" declare that Santa Anna overthrew the legitimate government of Mexico and that Texas therefore claims the right to secede. The present book opens with the 7 November 1835 decree in which "the people of Texas" declare that Santa Anna overthrew the legitimate government of Mexico and that Texas therefore claims the right to secede. It is followed by the "Plan and powers of the provisional government of Texas", adopted 13 November. This led to war on 2 October 1835. These declarations are followed by numerous ordinances of the interim government up to 17 January 1836. As independent Texas would reinstate the practice of slavery, among these is an ordinance fordidding "any free negro or mulatto to come within the limits of Texas... and upon satisafctory evidence... that such free negro or mulatto emigrated into Texas... it shall be the duty of the Judge or Alcalde... to expose him or her to sale at public auction to the highest bidder" (p. 12).With Sangorski & Sutcliffe's binder's stamp on the first free endleaf. Book and binding in very good condition.

        Jocko, Anecdote détachée des lettres inédites sur l'instinct des animaux.

      Paris: [J Tastu for ] P. Persan, 1824. Duodecimo, some foxing, localised stain affects the final leaf; good in contemporary quarter sheep with marbled boards. First edition: a curious tale exploring the dual nature of humans and primates, rich in philosophical reflection and purportedly based upon scientific and voyage literature.Charles Pougens (1755-1833) was an indefatigable scholar and linguist whose promising diplomatic career was cut short when blinded by the pox at 24 years of age. Pougens continued as a man-of-letters and publisher who enjoyed close contact with luminaries and intellectuals of the era.Jocko is a fictional work, relating the experiences of a traveller who forms a friendship with a female orang-outang on an unnamed island in the New World. Similarities between human and orang-outang behaviour are explored, although the simian is presented as an innocent ultimately duped by human greed.The author's insatiable erudition is attested by the 84 pages of evidence that accompany the short story; every aspect of the tale is linked to scientific and voyage literature. A galaxy of scholars and travellers are enlisted in the cause, including naturalists such as Cuvier and Geoffrey Saint-Hilaire, philosophers, and a number of famous voyagers including Schouten, Dampier and Bergeron. These notes are followed by an equally impressive alphabetical list of authors cited. The list is bibliographically detailed (we learn, for instance, that Pougens consulted the 1711-1712 Amsterdam edition of Dampier issued in five volumes).The scholarly nature of Jocko did not diminish the popular appeal of the story; a second edition appeared the same year and theatrical adaptations attracted large audiences.

        大隅源助引札 [Ōsumi Gensuke hikifuda ]. Advertisement flyer issued by Ōsumi Gensuke

      Edo. Black and white woodblock advertisement for surveying and optical instruments from the shop of Ōsumi Gensuke 大隅源助. Two sheets neatly joined together measure 36 x 50cm. Very good copy. Ōsumi was a manufacture and retailer of surveying instruments, optical equipment, clocks, etc. His business ran from the late Edo to early Meiji period and his shop was in Asakusa, Edo. There were four generations of the shop owners named Gensuke during this period, and probably this flyer was issued by Ōsumi Gensuke II (1824-96) in the late Edo period. The list of the goods the shop dealt in are listed in the text on the right. They are: spectacles, surveying instruments, goods imported from China, drawing materials, compasses and clocks, mirrors, glass and saltpetre, and telescopic instruments. The items illustrated here include a Japanese-style clock [Yaguradokei which literally means "tower clock" after its shape], spectacles, compasses, a thermometer, a magnifying glass, a music box, a magic lantern, a camera obscura, a pedometer, a pocket watch, a telescope, a microscope, different types of lamps, a mirror, a float-type hydrometer, a magnet, and a barometer/seismometer. Ōsumi issued more than ten flyers of this type during the late Edo to early Meiji period. These goods, all of which were high-tech instruments at the time, contributed to the modernisation of Japan. .

        Histoire du Bas-Empire

      36 - Paris - De L'Imprimerie de Firmin Didot, 1824 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. A rare fascinating collection of worksexploring the history of the later Roman Empire. New edition written in French. The decline of the Roman Empire refers to the gradual societal collapse of the Western Roman Empire. Many theories of causality prevail, but most concern the disintegration of political, economic, military, and other social institutions, in tandem with foreign invasions and usurpers from within the empire. Volume I focuses on Constantine the Great, Constantine I or Saint Constantine, whowas Roman Emperor from 306 to 337. Well known for being the first Roman emperor to convert to Christianity, Constantine and co-Emperor Licinius issued the Edict of Milan in 313, which proclaimed religious tolerance of all religions throughout the empire. The foremost general of his time, Constantine defeated the emperors Maxentius and Licinius during civil wars. He also fought successfully against the Franks, Alamanni, Visigoths, and Sarmatians during his reigneven resettling parts of Dacia which had been abandoned during the previous century. Constantine built a new imperial residence in place of Byzantium, naming it New Rome. However, in Constantine's honour, people called it Constantinople, which would later be the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire for over one thousand years. Because of this, he is thought of as the founder of the Eastern Roman Empire. Originally compiled by French historical writer, Charles Le Beau,the work was acontinuation of Charles Rollin's Histoire Romaine and JBL Crevier's Histoire des empereurs. This later new edition is produced by M. De Saint-Martin, a belletrist valued forhis aesthetic qualities and originality of style and tone. Thisinfluencial workis consideredto befaithfulto Byzantine historians, and the way in whichit describesConstantine I refounding itas an imperial residence in 330 AD. With R. M. Beverley's armorial bookplate to the front pastedown of each volume, author of The Darwinian Theory of the Transmutation of Species. Complete in twenty-one volumes.

        WANTED, NOT UNTIL MARCH 4th, 1825, AN HONEST, INTELLIGENT AND FAITHFUL MAN SERVANT, TO SERVE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, AS THEIR PRESIDENT...[first line of text]

      [N.p., 1824. Broadside, 11 x 9 inches. Old fold lines. A few small stains. Very good. A scarce and intriguing campaign broadside from the 1824 presidential election presented in the form of a "help wanted" ad, naming no specific candidate, but calling for an honest man to be a servant to the people, uncorrupted and incorruptible. The broadside repeatedly calls for representation of the common man over political cronies, support of American goods and interest over foreign concerns, and plain honest speech over flattery and rhetoric. In a cry that hearkens down through the years to the present day, it states: "Above all things he must be a Republican in deed and in truth: one who will acknowledge and found his practice upon the broad principles which are the foundation of the federal constitution, who will remember that Government was instituted for the common good, and not for the interest or agrandizement [sic] of a few at the expense of the many: who will keep an eye over the State Treasury and see that the expenses of the American family do not exceed their income; one, in short, who is not too proud to acknowledge that he is no more than the first servant of the people, and will neither be ashamed or afraid to do their will and attend to their interests in preference to those of all the Intriguers, Courtiers and Flatterers on earth." In the election of 1824, none of the four candidates running for office - Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, William H. Crawford, and Henry Clay - secured a majority of electoral votes, and the decision was thrown into the House of Representatives. Henry Clay, who was one of the candidates, was compelled to cast the deciding ballot by virtue of being House Speaker. He chose John Quincy Adams over Andrew Jackson, and much controversy ensued over an alleged "corrupt bargain" between Clay and Adams, with Adams naming Clay as his Secretary of State. Jackson would win the 1828 election against the incumbent Adams, partially as a backlash from the election of 1824. Only three copies in OCLC, at Brown University, the Huntington, and the New-York Historical Society. OCLC 54042567, 58786287, 228709189.

Friedrich Heinrich Karl, Baron de LaMotte-Fouqué (1777-1843) was a German writer of the romantic school. Robert Louis Stevenson admired Fouqué's story The Bottle Imp and wrote his own version (The Bottle Imp) with a Hawaiian setting. John Henry Newman and Charlotte Mary Yonge both praised Sintram and his Companions. William Morris also became an admirer of Sintram and his Companions, and it influenced Morris' own fiction. Sintram and his Companions and Undine are referred by Louisa May Alcott in Little Women; Jo March mentions wanting them for Christmas in the first chapter of the book and finally receives them in chapter 22. Furthermore, Aslauga's Knight, as well as Sintram and his Companions and Undine are referred to in Jo's Boys, the final book in Alcott's Little Women series, where Aslauga's Knight mirrors the character Dan and his affection for gentle Bess.
