        A Cabinet of Portraits consisting of Distinguished Characters, British and Foreign: accompanied with a Brief Memoir of each Person

      London, William Darton, [circa 1825]. Octavo, xii, 64 pages plus 64 engraved portraits with tissue-guards. Early gilt-decorated half calf and marbled papered boards a little rubbed and bumped at the extremities; corners and the rear leading edge a little worn; 'Vol III' label missing from the spine; occasional scattered foxing and offsetting; a very good copy. From the collection of James Hurtle Fisher, with his armorial bookplate on the pastedown and his signature in ink at the head of the engraved title page. Sir James Hurtle Fisher (1790-1875) 'was one of the most important pioneers of South Australia' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). He commenced practice as a solicitor in London in 1816 and 'was drawn into the colonizing movement in 1835.... [He] was selected as resident commissioner, one of the most important offices under the South Australian Act ... second only to the governor'. Fisher 'left England in July 1836 with the governor's party in the "Buffalo", arriving on 28 December 1836 at Holdfast Bay, where the official oaths were administered, a proclamation was read and a ceremony marked the beginning of settlement. In January 1837 Fisher erected his reed hut and Land Office near the survey camp of Colonel William Light at the north-western corner of the new capital site; the destruction of these temporary buildings by fire on 23 January 1839 caused both men serious loss. Fisher had been allowed to draft his own instructions, which were not shown to Governor [Sir] John Hindmarsh. Disputes between the two men over their respective powers had begun on the voyage and were soon revived in the new Council of Government, and more violently outside, and led in February 1837 to the Resident Magistrate's Court binding the participants over to keep the peace towards each other.... The new governor, George Gawler, was appointed both governor and resident commissioner, a radical departure from the principles on which the colony had been founded'. Fisher returned to his profession, and became a leader of the South Australian Bar. In October 1840 he was elected first mayor of Adelaide; in 1860 he became the first resident South Australian to be knighted. The destructive fire referred to above is described in detail in the biography of Light (Dutton and Elder, 1991). Light was living 'in the wood and reed surveyor's hut alongside Fisher's equally combustible house in the parklands on North Terrace. In his own account, "... we discovered Fisher's house to be on fire. At the same time, the breeze freshening up, the destruction to both houses became inevitable. In less than ten minutes both houses were burnt to the ground, mine catching fire at the roof by a lighted piece from Fisher's. We saved nothing of value"'. Accordingly, personal mementoes such as this, presumably brought by Fisher to South Australia on the 'Buffalo', must be of the utmost rarity.

        A Treatise on the Culture of the Vine, and the Art of Making Wine; compiled from the works of Chaptal, and other French Writers; and from the notes of the Compiler, during a residence in some of the Wine Provinces of France

      Australia: R. Howe, Government Printer, 1825. Fine copy in restored original binding.. Small quarto, with a folding table, some light browning; a fine copy, complete with the errata leaf, in contemporary polished half-calf over marbled boards, bumped, sympathetically rebacked, with most of the original spine laid down, lettered and decorated in gilt. Fine copy of the iconic work on Australian wine, in the preferred "quarto" format. Only very rarely seen on the market: this is the first book on Australian wine, the first book on wine to be published in Australia and the first book to carry the imprint "Australia" on the title page. This copy corresponds with the special issue in quarto format on thicker paper identified by the bibliographer Ferguson - though it has been convincingly argued that the difference between copies is not so much a question of issue as of the particular materials, especially paper, available to the publisher at the time. By 1825 the publishing industry in Sydney was mature but still slight of build, and certainly still subject to the vagaries of supply.James Busby, the father of Australian viticulture, was born in Scotland in 1801; he emigrated to New South Wales in 1824 after visiting the Bordeaux region of France where he studied methods of viticulture. He published his Treatise very shortly after his arrival in the colony. Five years later he published his Manual of Plain Directions that was aimed at small settlers whom he hoped would be able to "enjoy their daily bottle of wine, the produce of their own farms". Busby received a grant on the upper Hunter River, which he named "Kirkton", shortly after the publication of the Treatise and planted it with European vines. This famous vineyard was taken over by Lindemans in 1914.A very attractive copy of this foundation book, which marks the very beginnings of the Australian wine industry. Provenance: Private collection (Australia).

Only edition. - The scholar and mathematician Meyer Moses Kornick (also: Kurnik, d. in Hamburg in 1826) was a native of Glogau in Silesia, where he also served as a rabbi. "Kornick, who had corresponded with Rabbis Akiva Eger and Moses Sofer as well as contemporary Christian savants, published synoptic calendar tables that were highly regarded in scholarly circles, both Jewish and non-Jewish [. This] concordance of Julian, Gregorian, Jewish, and Islamic calendars formed the basis of Jahn's 'Tafeln' (Leipzig, 1856). It was highly praised by Isidore Loeb in his 'Tables du Calendrier Juif' (Paris: Durlacher, 1886). Max Simon [.] explained that although Kornick's esteemed tables were sold out at booksellers they still could be found with scholars who rely upon the tables for their research" (E.

      1825. [still in the original boards] translated from the Kinder und Haus Marchen. From Oral Tradition. [In Two Volumes.] London: James Robins & Co. / Dublin: Joseph Robins Junr. & Co., 1825/1826. 10 pp preliminary ads in Vol I; 1 page terminal ads in Vol II. Original pink paper-covered boards with green cloth spines and printed spine labels, all page edges uncut. First Edition in English of Vol II, and second edition of Vol I -- which is how this pair of volumes is often found, since the 1823 first edition of Vol I "is a rarity eagerly sought after by collectors of early children's books" [Quayle, in 1971]. That 1823 first volume was by a different publisher and in a different binding, but here, both the 1825 Vol I and the 1826 Vol II are by the publisher and in the binding that is standard for Vol II. (This second edition of Vol I includes a ten-page Preface not in the first.)~The volumes contain such tales as "The Travelling [Bremen-Town] Musicians," "Hansel and Grettel," "Rumpel-stilts-kin" and "Tom Thumb." Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, both professors of linguistics, collaborated in collecting these folk and fairy tales from the mouths of their country-folk; the tales had first been published in German in two volumes in 1812/1815. Included in these two volumes are engraved title pages plus nineteen (of twenty) plates by a young George Cruikshank.~As for condition, there is general wear to the edges of the boards and a little at the ends of the spines; about half of the Vol I spine label, and about a third of the Vol II spine label, have perished. There is occasional foxing, and the bottom half-inch of a rear free endpaper is torn away. Each half-title bears an 1828 inscription from father to son. It is amazing that these two volumes are still in their fragile paper-cover boards, more than 190 years after publication; the page edges are still uncut, as issued. Quayle CHILDREN'S pp 37-38. Housed in a cloth slipcase with leather label, with inner chemise.

        Autograph Letter, Signed ("Thomas Moore"), to Owen Rees

      Sloperton Cottage, [Wiltshire] 1825 - 2 pp. pen and ink on bifolium, integral address leaf, remnant of wax seals. 8vo (9 x 7-1/4 inches). Moore on Scott and Byron. Thomas Moore writes to the publisher Owen Rees, describing a visit to Sir Walter Scott, and announcing his plans to commence working on his Life of Byron. Reading in part, "I would not have lost this visit to Scotland for any consideration. Great as Scott is to the world, one must see him closely & at home to appreciate him properly, and the words with which he parted from me: 'my dear Moore, we are now friends for life,' were worth going round the world for. " Moore visited Scott at Abbotsford from 29 October through 2 November 1825. He wrote Scott a note of thanks on 6 Decemeber.The letter continues, with Moore discussing the details of his planned Life of Byron, for which he attempts to enlist the help of Byron's friend John Cam Hobhouse and the poet's half-sister Augusta Leigh: "I now mean to write to Hobhouse & Mrs. Leigh about the Life [of Byron]. Sir Walter is of opinion that they cannot, in honour & good feeling, do otherwise than atone to me for the sacrifice I have made by giving me every assistance in their power, & he advises that I should get Lord Lansdowne to be my mediator with them, which suggestion, perhaps, deserves some consideration. My visit to Scott was, in this respect, particularly lucky, as I have reason to think that Murray had some hopes of persuading him to undertake the Life, himself, which, after our confidential intercourse on the subject, is, of course, out of the question. This, between ourselves." The sacrifice of which Moore refers is his returning to Murray the 2,000 guineas paid for Byron's memoirs. Byron had entrusted his memoirs to Moore with the proviso that they published after his death. Moore then sold the papers to Murray, but the sale was converted to a loan with the papers as collateral. Moore did not pay off the loan until after Byron's death, at which point Murray and Hobhouse, desirous of protecting their late friend's reputation, wished the papers destroyed. The memoirs were destroyed over Moore's objections, to the great relief of Byron's family but to the inestimable loss to readers of English literature. In a letter to Hobhouse of 21 December 1825, Moore selflessly proposed a "Beaumont & Fletcher partnership" to work together on writing the Life, but Hobhouse continued in his opposition to any posthumous treatment of Byron. Moore's Letters and Journals of Lord Byron was published in 1830, and despite its omissions and selective editing it has remained "the mainstay of biographers ever since" (Marchand, Byron: A Portrait, p. 473). The Letters of Thomas Moore (Dowden, ed.), no. 679. Provenance: American Art Association, 6 December 1928 Creased and worn from prior folding, some soiling, blank corner portion of address lead torn away, hinges from prior mounting 2 pp. pen and ink on bifolium, integral address leaf, remnant of wax seals. 8vo (9 x 7-1/4 inches)

        Traité spécial de coupe des pierres

      1825 - 2 volumes, soit 1 vol. de Paris, chez l'auteur, Carilian-Goeury, 1825, in-4, 2 volumes, soit 1 vol. de texte, [VII]-472 pp. ; et un atlas de 100 planches gravées en taille-douce, demi-veau vert, dos lisses et filetés, Édition originale. "L'art qu'on désigne sous la dénomination de Coupe des Pierres, a pour objet l'exécution de toutes les parties d'édifices qui se font en pierre de taille, telles que les murs, les voûtes, les escaliers, les colonnes, les entablements, etc." Douliot, compagnon tailleur de pierre et architecte, traite de cet art dans les moindres détails ; son travail est, aujourd'hui encore, une référence sur le sujet. Jean-Paul Douliot (1788-1834), praticien ingénieux originaire d'Avignon, travailla dès son plus jeune âge sur des chantiers de construction dirigés par son père. Il est reçu compagnon et il devient, dès 1818, professeur de coupe des pierres. Afin de parfaire son éducation pratique, il suit les cours de Lavit à l'École royale gratuite de dessin (Arts décoratifs), tout en continuant de travailler sur des chantiers : il participa notamment aux travaux du pont d'Aigues et à la construction du pont de Iéna. Il devient à son tour professeur d'architecture à l'École royale. Douliot est l'auteur de plusieurs traités, parmi lesquels une Géométrie pratique, un Traité des charpentes et un Cours élémentaire, théorique et pratique de construction, dont le Traité spécial de la coupe des pierres est l'une des parties. Bel exemplaire, quelques rousseurs aux planches. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Series of Twenty-One Original Pencil Drawings. Oblong folio.

      [c.1825-1830] 21 pencil drawings, on rectos only of 21 consecutive leaves in contemp. artists' sketch book, roan spine & corners, 35 x 26cm; final few leaves with light damp stains in outer margin, occasional light spotting, tissue guards worn in places.A series of highly accomplished pencil drawings, mainly of rural and pastoral scenes, containing delicate studies of trees, churches, lakes and follies. Most are unsigned and undated, but three have the signature H.W. Burgess in the lower margin, and are dated 1827 and 1830. These are archetypal Burgess drawings, depicting idyllic scenes of outstanding natural beauty. In 1827 Burgess published a work entitled Eidodendron, which contained 54 plates: 'Views of the general character and appearance of trees foreign & indigenous as connected with picturesque scenery'. These sketches could be similarly titled, and may well have informed the artist's later publication Studies of Trees, published by J. Dickinson in 1837. Burgess, c.1792-1839 (1844 in other places), was born in London into a family of well-known artists. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, and in 1826 became landscape painter to William IV.

        View of the Hebrews ; or the Tribes of Israel in America . Second edition, improved and Enlarged

      Smith & Shute, Poultney, (Vt.) 1825 - Second Edition. x, [3], 14-285 pages. 12 mo. Worn leather binding with red spine label and simple gilt spine rules. Light pencilled notations on front flyleaf (owners name and several codes, probably previous bookseller notes). Prelims with dampstaining and foxing. Overall foxing and browning throughout.

"'View of the Hebrews' is an 1823 book written by Ethan Smith, a United States Congregationalist minister, who argued that Native Americans were descended from the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. This was a relatively common view during the early nineteenth century, as most Europeans and Americans had a view of history as biblical. Numerous commentators on Mormon history, from LDS Church general authority B. H. Roberts to Fawn M. Brodie, biographer of Joseph Smith, have noted similarities in the content of 'View of the Hebrews' and the 'Book of Mormon', which was first published in 1830, seven years after Ethan Smith's book." (wikipedia)First published in 1823, this is the substantially enlarged 1825 edition. A nice addition to any collection related to American Indian or Mormon history. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Hardinsburg, Kentucky, 1825. Unbound. Very good. This three-page folded-letter measures 14.75" x 12.25" unfolded. Sent from Hardinsburg, Kentucky to Bedford, Virginia, dated March 14th, 1825. It has a manuscript "Hardingsburg Ky / Mar 15th" postmark with a "Paid 50" rate marking indicating that postage was paid for a delivery over 400 miles distant. The sender was charged double the single-letter rate because the folded-letter contained legal form (no longer present). The letter is in nice shape with some wear; splits beginning along some of the folds. Lots of docketing. In this letter that will make your skin crawl, Thomas Lowry emphatically encourages his brothers John, William, and Triptellto commit perjury in a pending lawsuit filed by a family slave, Sam. It had been their father's long-time intention that upon his death that Sam would be emancipated, and shortly before his death, he included this provision in a will and informed Sam. Upon his father's death, Thomas refused to grant Sam his freedom. Sam obtained legal counsel and filed suit against the estate. The letter reads in part, "Sam has brought suit for his freedom the grounds that he brings suit on is from a will that Farther maid a few months before he died In this will he set Sam free this will were maid onknoing to me as soon as I hurd I went and drew the will . . . and I thought it were all safe [but] Sam advised with the lawyers and thay advised him to bring suit . . . I want you to remember when Farther delivered Brother William his negroes that he delivered Sam to you and . . . said to you I want you to let Sam stay with me my lifetime . . . you agreed to do so . . . I want you to prove by Brother William and Triptell . . . that Sam was delivered to you when you were here. If you can't prove Sam ware your property the case will be very doubtfull . . . If you cant prove [that] you must come and take him in persession and you can prove by me he ware your property at the time the will ware maid. . . . The coarse Ile persew is to try and break the will on the account of farthers being out of his elements. I can prove by 4 or 5 withnesses that he ware out of his natural elements before and after he maid the will [but] Sam can prove . . . Farther ware in his perfect elements . . . William Scanton roat the will and Barryamen Lowry witness to the will and they both say they will sware that farther was in his proper elements at the that time. . . . My atterney says the main chance is to prove that he ware not Fathers property . . . I am yousing every creation within my powerss . . . Moorman is strong evidence against me he says he always herd father say he intended to free Sam at his death . . . You must without fail take the depositions [and] employ some good lawyer to . . . send them on as quick as possible." A unique example that not only documents the evil of slavery and one family's greed, but also testifies to the integrity of other white Southerners who were willing to fight in court to ensure Sam was manumitted.
