        Ten years after writing ?The Star-Spangled Banner? waving o?er the land of the free, lawyer Francis Scott Key assures a Maryland Post Master that a young slave, duly purchased by a friend, is in no danger of being legally taken away but, since there is the ?danger ? that they would steal the child away or get possession of her by force,? Key suggests to seek ?an injunction ... to prevent the party or his agent from any attempt to take her from his possession??

      "Autograph Letter Signed ?F.S. Key,? 1.25 pages, 7.5? x 12.5?, front & verso. George Town, January 24, 1825. Integral leaf addressed by Key to ?Mr Jas. P. Stabler / P.M. / Sandy Spring / Montg[omer]y Co[un]ty Maryland.? Faint Georgetown D.C. Jan 25 postmark. Minor flaws. Expertly strengthened at folds. Very good condition.In full, ?I remember the old man mentioned in your letter & his story ?" He is in no danger from any legal measures that may be resorted to to take the child away from him: & he did not inform me that there was any cause to apprehend that they would resort to force or stealth ?" though I can easily believe that those who would wish to take her away would not be scrupulous about the means.?The paper & the proof he has, are quite sufficient there was no necessity for a more formal paper, nor that it should be recorded ?" The only difficulty was as to his wife?s being the purchaser ?" But this I think of no consequence, as she would be considered as his agent, & as making the purchase for him: & as he has been in possession of the child so long, they could not recover her from him by a suit ?" the Statute of limitations would of it self be a bar to their claim.?But his only danger is the one you suggest ?" that they would steal the child away or get possession of her by force.?To prevent this, I would recommend that a Bill be filed, setting out the facts, & praying to have his title confirmed, & an injunction granted to prevent the party or his agent from any attempt to take her from his possession. Judge Kilgour would, I am sure, grant such an injunction immediately.?If our Court was not sitting I would draw the Bill for him: but I could not do it conveniently for some time, & I am sure that Mr Forrest or one of the Gentlemen at the Court house would do it for him ?" If however he cannot get it done otherwise I will do it.?"

        Urania's Mirror, or, A View of the Heavens

      London: Samuel Leigh 1825, 1st Edition. () Very good. 32 hand coloured cards (14 X 20 cm.) depicting the constellations. Each card has perforations of different sizes over the different stars. Glued to the back of each card is a diffusing tissue. The images are in clean bright condition. A few of the diffusing tissues are torn. The cards are housed in a reconstructed box with the original front panel and sides laid down on the edges. The whole is housed in a modern morocco backed, fold over box. Included with the set of cards is a separately published companion volume entitled "A Familiar Treatise on Astronomy, explaining the General Phenomena of the Celestial Bodies; with numberous Graphic Illustrations. By Jehoshaphat Aspin. Written expressly to accompany Urania's Mirror, or A View of the Heavens: ... Second Edition, with considerable augmentations and improvements. London 1825. The book is in the original paper cover boards which have been renewed and have an added new spine. The book is also housed in the fold over box. This wonderful idea for a "Star Atlas" educational tool works by holding the cards up to a light source and the constellations then seem to have been lite up and can be compared to the night sky. The effect is striking indeed. Complete examples in nice condition are scarce even more so with part of the original box included. The title of Aspin's accompanying book suggests the original concept was designed by a Lady who is not identified. Aspin's volume which seems to be as scarce at the set of cards has several folding plates. Also included is an original bill of sale for the book from Henry Sotheran's in 1948..

        The Cabinet Maker's Guide; or, Rules and Instructions in the Art of Varnishing, Dying, Staining, Japanning, Polishing, Lackering, and Beautifying Wood, Ivory, Tortoiseshell & Metal, with Observations on Their Management and Application

      London / Dublin: Printed for Knight and Lacey, Paternoster-Row, and Westley and Tyrrell, 1825. A new edition with considerable additions; including an appendix, containing several valuable tables. Printed paper covered boards. Spine repaired with binder's tape, boards rubbed with a few chips at the edges, a few scuff marks, one affecting the word 'wood' on the front board and one affecting a few letters of the advertisements on the rear board, front endpapers soiled, fly leaf torn and split from gutter, small chips to top edge of a1 and a2 probably from opening roughly, some staining to last page of index and blank, occasional finger soiling, but overall remarkably clean, crisp, and tight, and even scarcer thus as most copies and manuals of this nature usually disintegrated from use. 16mo. Printed by T. C. Hansard. The first known edition of this book was published in 1809, though it was then only 36 pages and the author identified as Peter Weber. A later edition, only slightly expanded, was published in 1818, and the author was identified as Thomas Howard. This new edition was greatly enlarged and published in 1825 (there was also a longer edition published in 1825 by a different publisher). The author is identified in later editions as G. A. Siddons. The edition offered here is the basis for the first American edition by Ansel Phelps published the same year as well as the source of all later editions into the 20th century. Robert Mussey, in his introduction to a reprint of the 1827 American edition, points out that this work contains the first mention of French polishing and of glass-paper (sandpaper). Hundreds of thousands of copies were printed in the fourteen known and over seventy pirated editions. "Students of furniture and finishing history should find this an invaluable source for the interpretation of our antique furniture heritage." Advertisements on back cover. Scarce. OCLC and RLIN show only 5 copies of this edition.

        Illinois and Missouri by H. S. Tanner. Improved to 1825

      Philadelphia: H. S. Tanner, 1825. Copper-engraving with full period colour. One of the earliest state maps of Illinois and Missouri: this the revised second issue with significant changes to the mapping of the Mississippi headwaters and with an early depiction of the beginnings of the Santa Fe Trail. Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas was the most distinguished atlas published in America during the nineteenth century. The maps were carefully constructed from the best and most recent surveys. They were finely engraved on a large-scale, printed on high quality paper, and carefully hand colored. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. This is one of the earliest maps to show Illinois and Missouri as American states. The map was added to the fifth part of the atlas in 1823. For Illinois, organized counties appear only in the southern part of the state. The northernmost part of the state is still the preserve of the Sauk and Fox. Further south, between the Illinois and Mississippi rivers, are the Military Bounty Lands. A primitive Chicago and Fort Dearborn appear at the mouth of the Chicago River. For Missouri, a state since 1820, counties appear only along the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. Missouri's northern and southern extremities are quite empty. This copy is an example of the improved second issue of the map. The most significant changes can be seen in Tanner's revised mapping of the headwaters of the Mississippi. Tributaries off the Tete de Mort River have been removed, the locations and directions of the Sahsinakway, Fievre and Apple Rivers flow north to south (as opposed to northeast to southwest), Oak Creek has been removed, and the lead mines just north of the Tete de Mort River are now named Dubuque Lead Mines. Another significant change to the map is the addition of Lexington, Missouri; platted in 1822 and made the county seat the following year, Lexington would become an outfitting point for many travelling westward on the Santa Fe and Oregon trails. Other changes to the map from the first edition include the additions of several counties in Illinois created since the first printing. Phillips, Atlases , 3669-12; cf. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers , pp. 191-198; Rumsey, 2755.017; cf. Sabin 94323.

        The West Indies as they are; or A Real Picture of Slavery:

      London: for J. Hatchard and Son; and Lupton Relfe,, 1825. but more particularly as it exists in the Island of Jamaica. In three parts. With notes. Octavo. Original brown paper wrappers, printed paper spine-label. Nancy Cunard's copy, with the title written on the front cover in her hand. Covers detached, wrappers with tapemarks from old amateur repair, the whole protected in an archival paper chemise and folding cloth case. First edition of this eyewitness account of the conditions in Jamaica by an Anglican cleric, a key source for the history of this period. By no means a fanatical abolitionist, Bickell's testimony is the more valuable for that. He attributed the sufferings of the slaves to the dullness and apathy produced by continuity, if not intensity, of toil ("This constant work, work, work is a principal cause of one of the greatest hardships in West Indian slavery—I mean the constant use of the whip; for, seeing that work is their only portion, they are inclined to be indolent") and he noticed that, with a very natural perversity, slaves "take care not to put forth all their strength.

Sir Astley Cooper (1768-1841) war der bedeutenste englische Chirurg im ersten Drittel des 19.Jahrhundert. Er hat die chirurgischen Wissenschaften durch die große Sicherheit seiner Diagnosen und die Einfachheit seiner Therapie, vor allem in operativer Hinsicht, bereichert. Berühmtheit erlangten seine Schriften über die Hernien, Arterienligatur, Frakturen und Luxationen, Krankheiten der Hodens, etc. Nächst Wellington war er die populärste Persönlichkeit seiner Zeit. - Hirsch-H. II, 97-99; Brunn, Gesch. d.Chir., 264. - In 1817 Cooper ligated the abdominal aorta. The patient died next day, but examinationm showed that his aorta was so diseased that he could never have recovered, while the ligation was so well performed that with a lesser degree of aprtic disease the man would probably have survived". -cf.

        Fält Artillerie Kongl. Svea Artillerie Regemente.

      [Stockholm] Ritadt af C. Wetterling. Stentr. af C. Müller. [1825] - Folio. (45 x 85 cm.) Hand coloured lithograph. Blue passe partout. Gilt frame 60 x 98 cm. A plate in beautiful hand coloring from the famous work "Kongl. Svenska Arméens Uniformer", (The Uniforms of the Royal Swedish army) by Adolf Schützercrantz. An early swedish lithographic plate book. The present plate is one of the two classic fold out lithographs in the book. The book is a great rarity and loose plates are very scarce, especially the fold outs. Adolf Schützercrantz was an officer, sketch artist, lithographer and painter. He specialized in military scenes and landscape views. The plates were printed by Carl Müller, who introduced commercial lithography in Sweden with Ludwig Fehr in 1818. The image was drawn by the painter Alexander Clemens Wetterling, before his stay in Italy where he spent several years along with other swedish artists, such as Hjalmar Mörner and Carl Jacob Lindström. The french artist Vernet was at this time head of the french art academy in Rome and became friend with Wetterling who was heavily influenced by the excellence of Vernet. Wetterling is a pioneer in swedish lithography, and a well known caricature artist. Rare. Folds partly repaired. The left fold with some small damage and a repired four centimeter tear into the image. A ten centimeter tear in the lower margin and two very short ters. Still in nice condition.

        Autograph letter signed to Michael Faraday

      Manchester, 1825. To Michael Faraday, Regarding Faraday's Discovery of BenzeneHenry, William (1774-1836). Autograph letter signed to Michael Faraday (1791-1867). Manchester, Dec. 6, 1825. 1 page plus portion of address leaf containing Henry's autograph direction to Faraday, the whole mounted on a larger leaf with a handwritten caption at the foot. Light soiling to address portion, otherwise fine.From the noted British chemist William Henry, enunciator of "Henry's Law" of the solubility of gases and author of Elements of Experimental Chemistry (1801 & 10 subsequent eds.), the most popular and successful English-language chemistry textbook of its day; to Michael Faraday, one of the most influential scientists in history, whose investigations of electricity and magnetism established the basis for the electromagnetic field concept in physics and formed the foundation of electric motor technology. Faraday was also one of the most famous chemists of his time, with most of his major discoveries in chemistry being accomplished in the 1820s. The letter, concerning Faraday's discovery of benzene in 1825, reads as follows:"My dear Sir, Although the vol. of Phil. Trans. containing your paper on the compounds of Carbon and Hydrogen is not yet published, and will probably be anticipated by my new edition, yet I presume there can be nothing inconsistent with the laws or usages of the Royal Society, if I give an abstract of it in my forthcoming edition. This I shall as before introduce into an Appendix, unless I hear to the contrary from you. But if any objection strikes you, I must beg the favour of you to write by an early post, otherwise I will not put you to the trouble of a letter on the subject. Believe me, Dear Sir, Yours most faithfully, Willm. Henry."Henry is referring here to Faraday's "On new compounds of carbon and hydrogen, and on certain other products obtained during the decomposition of oil by heat" (Philosophical Transactions [1825]: 440-66), in which Faraday announced his successful isolation of benzene (C6H6), which he named "bi-carburet of hydrogen." It would appear that Henry did indeed get Faraday's permission to abstract the 1825 paper, as an account of Faraday's researches in this area appears in the eleventh edition of Henry's Elements of Experimental Chemistry (1829). Williams, Michael Faraday, p. 108.

Airy, Britain's Astronomer Royal from 1835 to 1881, was the first to devise a sphereocylindrical lens for correcting astigmatism, a condition from which he himself suffered in his left eye. Airy's method is still used today. "Astigmatism was not known until [Thomas] Young discovered it in his own eyes in 1801 and correction for it was not available until 1827 [sic] when Airy designed the first lens for correction of astigmatism" (Gorin, Hist. Ophthalmology, p. 41). DSB. Hirschberg 11-1a, pp. 198-201.
