        Record of Orders for Town Charges." TOWN ACCOUNT BOOK. Manuscript on Paper

      1825-1847, New Portland, Massachusetts 1825 - Small 8vo (7.5 x 4.5") pages unnumbered, bound in original quarter calf over plain boards. Contemporary ink on cover, "Record of Orders for Town Charges," Sept. 1, 1825 - Nov. 15, 1847 HIGHLY INTERESTING MANUSCRIPT ACCOUNT BOOK OF THE TOWN NEW PORTLAND, FORMERLY IN MASSACHUSETTS, SUBSEQUENTLY GIFTED BY LEGISLATION TO MAINE, IN COMPENSATION FOR THE BURNING OF FALMOUTH (TODAY KNOWN AS PORTLAND, MAINE) BY THE BRITISH DURING THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR. It is of the greatest interest that New Portland, MA (i.e. ME) was first settled by Revolutionary War veterans in 1773; financial records of the early township, the settlers, their children and their grandchildren, appear throughout the present manuscript. It would appear that almost no early records of the town survive, financial or otherwise: thus the present manuscript is of the greatest interest to historians of Massachusetts, Maine, and beyond. The account book is penned in several clear hands, in medium-brown and occasionally blue ink, its chroniclers unnamed but diligent. Many of the town's pioneers as well as local places are named. A few sample entries: "Dec. 5, 1825: Order drawn in favor of S. Gould for advertising 3 petitions and for abatements: $7.00. Jan. 1, 1833: Order in favor of James Spear for rations for himself & a private in his Company & for Elder Hutchins. Mar. 15, 1834: P. Strickland for building School House, $210.00. Mar. 7, 1835: Tobias Churchill for furnishing clothes to Love Butler, a pauper, $6.50. Nov. 13, 1836: James Hutchins for his services as committee on the bridge at Churchill's falls, $5.00 [David Hutchins was the very first settler of the village, in 1783]. Jan. 24, 1843: for damage on acct. of bad roads the present winter, $4.00." Other orders for gun powder, saving bridge timber, "for working highway," "blowing rocks," "chaise & waggon," medical services, "supplies to paupers," "highway taxes," "poll taxes," auctioneers license, retailer license, "school district tax," "paying cash to soldiers," and much, much more. The account book is a veritable mine of original source material concerning the finances of the early pioneers in this area; for instance: "Mar. 22, 1826: Order in favor of Josiah Parker for balance due him on settlement as treasurer, $167.50"). In 1786 Josiah Parker arrived at New Portland from Groton, Mass. He had served in the Fourth Regiment of Massachusetts militia during the Revolutionary, and was honorably discharged at West Point. "He subsequently bore an honorable and arduous part in the affairs of this town" SOURCE: "History of New Portland, Maine, From a Gazetteer of the State of Maine" by Geo. J. Varney, Boston, B.B. Russell, 1886). THE WIRE SUSPENSION BRIDGE: New Portland is famous for its extremely early and largely original Wire Suspension Bridge, believed to be the earliest surviving example in the United States. Scholars and architectural historians disagree about the date of conception, construction, and completion, yet the present account book provides conclusive answers about all of the above. See for instance the orders paid on March 7, 1840 to "John Hansen for plans for the bridge at the falls" and to "John Newall for building abutments under the bridge at the falls." From 1840 to 1847, this account book provides records of exact amounts that were paid to named workers, suppliers, and engineers for construction on the bridge. Interestingly, the greatest number of orders were paid by the town in 1847, specifically July 15, September 10, and September 25, 1847. Marilyn Gorman and Dianne Pease, in their "Bridges of West New Portland" (Maine Memory Record Online) give an insightful history of the New Portland Wire Suspension Bridge. On June 20, 1842 the bridge was opened to traffic, the cost was "$2200." A FASCINATING ENCAPSULATION OF THE BIRTH, HARDSHIPS, FINANCES, AND DOLLAR VALUES OF THIS EARLY MASSACHUSETTS TOWN.

        View of the landing at Rangoon of part of the Combined forces from Bengal and Madras, under the Orders of Sir Archd. Campbell, K.C. B. on the 11th of May 1824

      Kingsbury & Co. and Thomas Clay, London 1825 - A beautiful plate from Moore's work "Eighteen Views taken at & Near Rangoon," an important visual record of the Burmese countryside and scenery, and of the war between the Burmese and British in 1824 to 1826. Following Burmese incursions into British held territory in 1821-1823 (including the successful invasion of Assam), the Governor-General, Lord Amherst, declared war on Burma on February 24, 1824. The British were successful in expelling the Burmese from Assam, but Bandula, the ablest of the Burmese generals, repelled a British detachment at Ramu on the Chittagong frontier. In reply, the British sent an expedition of 11,000 men under Major-General Archibald Campbell and ships under Captain Frederick Marryat to attack Rangoon by sea. The expedition resulted in the capture of Rangoon on May 11, 1824, with the Burmese forces fleeing into jungles of Pegu. Meanwhile, Bandula had been recalled and arrived in Rangoon on December 1 with 60,000 men. He was, however, defeated on December 15 and then retreated to Donabew, where, after a brave defence, he was killed in April 1825. On April 25, Campbell captured Prome, the capital of Lower Burma. The fighting continued sporadically throughout the rest of 1825 and into 1826, until a peace treaty was signed on February 24. Joseph Moore was a Lieutenant in the 89th Regiment. Frederick Marryat's involvement in the conflict began in March 1823 when he "commissioned the Larne for service in the East Indies, where he arrived in time to take an active part in the first Burmese war. From May to September 1824 he was senior naval officer at Rangoon, and was officially thanked for his able, gallant, and zealous co-operation with the troops. The very sickly state of the ship obliged him to go to Penang, but by the end of December he was back at Rangoon, and in February 1825 he had the naval command of an expedition up the Bassein River, which occupied Bassein and seized the Burmese magazines."

        The MAGIC RING; A Romance. From the German of Frederick, Baron de la Motte FouquŽ. In Three Volumes.

      Oliver & Boyd,, Edinburgh: 1825 - "The Magic Ring (Der Zauberring, 1813). has as its central motif a magic ring that conveys worldly power. The ring is eventually destroyed by being cast into the flames. The story is complex, with a wealth of adventures, magical and otherwise, around the medieval world and many fine supernatural ideas, including a magic garden like Kundry's in Wagner's Parsifal as well as magic mirrors. The Magic Ring seems to be the ultimate source for the idea behind Wagner's RING Cycle and [perhaps] Tolkien's work." Quite uncommon; only one copy to come to auction in the last 25+ years [1993]. Sullivan, who we quote above from his discussion of the work in The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, concludes with this edition is "impossible to find." Trifling bit of rubbing to extremities & boards. the usual light smattering of foxing. A VG+ copy. 19th C red half morocco-style sheep with marbled boards; spine with 5 raised bands and titled in gilt. TEG. Marbled eps. 12mo. 7-1/2" x 4-1/2". 1st edition in English. 3 volumes (xvi, 319; [4], 344; [4], 332 pp). Half titles present. Fore-edge & lower edge untrimmed.

        The Magic Ring; a romance,

      Edinburgh: by Oliver & Boyd; and Geo. B. Whittaker,, 1825. from the German of Frederick, Baron de La Motte Fouqué. 3 volumes, 12mo (176 × 104 mm). 19th-century half Japanese vellum, double morocco labels, gilt spines, red sides, endpapers and edges. With the half-titles. Bookplates of A. J. A. Symons. Rubbed, a little light foxing, chiefly to outer leaves, a good set. First edition in English of Der Zauberring (1813), translated by Scott's friend Robert Pearse Gillies. The novel blends medieval quest, epic fantasy and Gothic nightmare, inspired by Germanic folk tales and Icelandic sagas, Arthurian romance and Gothic horror. The book is a clear precursor to William Morris's medieval romances, George Macdonald's spiritual fantasies, and to Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung. Macdonald and Morris are both acknowledged influences on Tolkien, and it has been argued that Tolkien's distaste for Wagner and what his work represented led him to write The Lord of the Rings as a cultural antidote to Wagner. The book is scarce in commerce, no copy having appeared at auction for 15 years. This copy from the library of the book collector and writer A. J. A. Symons, author of The Quest for Corvo.

        St. Patrick, the Winner of the Great St. Leger, at Doncaster, 1820

      W. Sheardown and Son, [London] 1825 - This magnificent portrait of St. Patrick, Sir E. Smith's celebrated racehorse who won the Great St. Leger Stakes in 1820, is considered one of Herring's most accomplished sporting portraits. Herring is an outstanding and imaginative artist who at an early age showed an aptitude for handling both riding whip and pencil. At a young age, fate took Herring to the Doncaster races where he saw the Duke of Hamilton's horse, William, win the St. Leger. The sight inspired him to attempt the art of animal-painting, in which he subsequently excelled. In addition to being a successful horse painter, Herring made his livelihood as a coachman, and for some time drove the Highflyer coach between London and York. When eventually he retired as a coachman he immediately obtained numerous commissions and was able to devote himself entirely to his art. Herring had no education in art until he definitely set up as an artist, when he worked for a short time in the studio of Abraham Cooper, R.A. He painted an immense number of racing, coaching, and other sporting subjects, many of which were published by the sporting printsellers and the sporting magazines. He was a frequent exhibitor at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Artists; he was elected a member of the latter society in 1841. While in later life he painted a number of subject-pictures, it was as a portrait-painter of racehorses that Herring earned his fame, and no great breeder or owner of racehorses is without some treasured production of Herring's brush. In 1825 The Doncaster Gazette commissioned Herring to paint a series of portraits of the winners of the St. Leger Stakes between 1815 and 1824. Aquatinted by the renowned engraver Thomas Sutherland, the series is considered to be Herring's most accomplished work. The suite, which was comprised of a set of 10 portraits of the winner's and their Jockeys, was first published by W. Sheardown and Sons. The prints proved so popular that they were later republished and expanded by S. & J. Fuller, who published a book including Herring's prints of the St. Leger stakes. This magnificent print of St. Patrick with his Jockey is a rare example of the early first state of this print published by Sheardown. It is a magnificent rich impression with fresh early colour and superb highlights.

Herring, Senior (1795 to 1865), p. 84. Colour-printed aquatint by Thomas Sutherland, finished by hand and heightened with gum arabic. Printed on wove Whatman paper. State i, later republished by J. Fuller in a book. A stunning impression in fine condition. Expert repairs to the margins. Image size: 12 1/4 x 16 1/8 inches.

        [Chapbook]: Park's Edition of the Ten Commandments in Verse

      London: Printed and Published by John Fairburn, 110 Minories. [circa 1825]. First. First edition. A remarkable, scarce chapbook printed and published by John Fairburn, circa 1825, consisting of 8 folded leaves or 16 unnumbered pages, with the first folded leaf serving as the wrapper, and 8 engraved illustrations with vivid, contemporary hand-coloring. Overall soiling to the wraps, a thin strip of tape at the fold, and a small chip to the upper right corner of the front wrap and first leaf, good. Internally very good, the hand-colored illustrations are bright and clean, with moderate staining and thumbing to the corners. John Fairburn, "veteran scandalmonger," bookseller, and radical publisher of various penny dreadfuls, political tracts, etc., also published numerous chapbooks for children and young adults. The text used in this edition of Park's Ten Commandments is from the English Book of Common Prayer. Unlike most chapbooks, this was not printed letterpress with woodcut illustrations. Both the front wrap and text pages appear to have been printed lithographically, and the illustrations were most likely printed from etched and engraved plates. The illustrations are also notable for their innovative designs, and for the large number of colors used in the hand-coloring (we count up to twelve separate colors). Very scarce. OCLC locates only one copy at Claremont College. .

In the present letter he praises Cardinal Zurla for the Cardinal&#39;s understanding support of his [Aldini&#39;s] scientific enterprises. Apart from his promotion of animal electricity, Aldini helped to found the National Institute of Italy, established a practical school of physics and chemistry at Bologna, and pursued a career as an inventor. In his letter to the Cardinal he presents copies of two of his latest publications-on a machine for cutting marble, and on lighthouse construction-and expresses his intention to interest the Pope in his work by presenting him with drawings and models. </p>

        Nouvel Almanach des Gourmands, servant de guide dans les moyens de faire excellente chère. Dédié au Ventre. Par A.B. de Périgord. Première année [Deuxième année] [Troisième année]

      Paris: Baudouin Frères, 1825-1827. (GASTRONOMY) First edition, all published. 3 vols., 18mo. Each volume with frontispiece and engraved Carte gastronomique de la France (folded). Prospectus bound in at front of vol. I. Pp. [iv], iv, xxiv, 234, [221]- 224; [xx], 264; [xx], 246. Modern boards. Occasional light foxing. Near Fine. Vicaire 673; Bitting p. 365; Cagle 366 (defective copy of a second printing), 367,368 . A dozen years after the final volume of the celebrated Almanach des Gourmands of Grimod de la Reynière, Horace Raisson and Léon Thiessé initiated a new annual dedicated to the pleasures of the table and the stomach. It ran three years and contains reviews of restaurants and hotels, provisioners and wine merchants, recipes. Raisson was a prolific author whose subsequent works on gastronomy and etiquette were translated into English, Spanish, and Swedish, and did much to spread the fame of French cookery. The third year was edited by Thiessé alone. The three frontispieces depict "L'inspiration du gourmand," "Le premier devoir du gourmand," and "Promenade du gourmand." The excellent gastronomical map shows the diversity of French agricultural and wine-making regions. The prospectus praises Grimod de la Reynière and calls for samples to be submitted for review: 'since conscientious gourmands can only speak of that which they have seen, felt, and tasted, news, documents, samples, and "légitimations," in short, everything relevant to the Almanach des Gourmands - will be subitted to the appreciation of the enlightened jury, and then scrupulously announced, described, and judged in future annuals.' Notable in the second volume is a somewhat scoffing notice of Brillat Savarin's Physiologie du gout, which is deemed to be somewhat over long. The tone changes dramatically, for in the third volume is a contemporary biographical notice and elegy of Brillat Savarin, who died in 1826, not long after publication of his celebrated work. An interesting work from a key period in French gastronomy. Copies of the first year of this annual are found in institutional collections; the later years are quite scarce: complete sets at NYPL; Lilly, with the first year in second edition, lacking the map. The Bibliothèque National does not locate the second year

      printed for R.Griffin & Company, [Glasgow 1825 - A possibly unique series of three very early lithographic proofs of views of the island of St. Vincent in the West Indies. These fine views, after original drawings by the naturalist Lansdown Guilding, are uncoloured proofs of the three views that were published, hand-coloured, in Guilding's An Account of the Botanic Garden in the Island of St. Vincent , published in Glasgow in 1825. The fourth plate, a plan of the gardens rather than a view, was also included in the published work according to Abbey. Only one of the present images is captioned but, according to Abbey, the images are as follows: 1. House of the Superintendent [of the Botanic Garden] 2. [View of the Botanic Garden St. Vincent. / Taken from the Superintendent's House] 3. [Botanic Garden, / from the bottom of the Central Walk] Abbey quotes from a contemporary prospectus concerning the distribution of the work on the island, which notes that `only a few copies have been sent out for sale, but Mr. Draper will receive at the Gazette Office the names of those who are disposed to encourage the Bookseller who printed it' BM (NH) II, p.750; Cf. Abbey Travel II, 691; not in Sabin. Set of three uncoloured lithographs, drawn on stone by J. Watson (?), from original drawings by L. Guilding, one cut to the edge of the image with loss to the artist's name, two cut to the edge of the image, all on early pink paper mounts within ink ruled borders.

First edition. - The fame of the English clergyman Teonge (1621-90) rests on his present work. Due to financial difficulties, he enlisted in the Navy and became a chaplain on the ships Assistance, Bristol and Royal Oak, completing three voyages to the Mediterranean, where he searched for pirates, landed in Syria and visited Malta, Zante, Cephalonia, and Aleppo. - "The interest of Teonge's life is concentrated in the diary of the few years he spent at sea, which gives an amusing and precious picture of life in the navy at that time. This journal, from 20 May 1675 to 28 June 1679, having lain in manuscript for over a century, was purchased from a Warwickshire family by Charles Knight, who edited it in 1825 as &#145;The Diary of Henry Teonge,&#146; with a facsimile of the first folio of the manuscript (London, 8vo). The narrative reveals the diarist as a pleasant, lively, easy-going man, not so strict as to prevent his falling in with the humours of his surroundings" (DNB). The diary contains accounts of cruises in the Channel, Atlantic, and Mediterranean, leavened with occasional songs, sonnets, acrostics, etc. "The nature of Teonge's diary, and the disappearance of the manuscript for almost a century after its first publication in 1825, led to persistent suggestions that it might have been a forgery. Confirmation both of Teonge's existence and of the sequence of events which he recorded came from the Admiralty records in the Public Record Office, and the re-emergence of the manuscript itself at a Sotheby&#146;s sale in 1918 put the matter conclusively to rest" (ODNB). - Occasional insignificant brownstaining; altogether a well-preserved copy.

        Traité clinique et physiologique de l'encéphalite, ou inflammation du cerveau et de ses suites, telles que le ramolissement, la suppuration, les abcès, les tubercules, le squirrhe, le cancer, etc.

      J.B. Baillière, Paris 1825 - In-8, XXIV, 350 pp., demi-chagrin vert de l¿époque, dos un peu passé, tranches marbrées, coins usés, cachet de bibliothèque au titre (Dr. L.M.), très bon état intérieur hormis de légères rousseurs. Jean Baptiste Bouillaud (1796-1881) fut professeur de clinique médicale à la Charité, où il fut l¿un des plus grands cliniciens après Corvisart. Il devint doyen de la faculté de médecine de Paris, membre de l¿Académie de médecine (et président de cette Académie en 1862), membre de l¿Académie des sciences. Balzac s¿inspira de Bouillaud pour son personnage du Docteur Bianchon. Bouillaud avait déjà fait paraître, quelques mois auparavant, dans Archives Générales de Médecine, un article préliminaire intitulé « Recherches cliniques propres à démontrer que la perte de la parole correspond à la lésion des lobules antérieurs du cerveau, et à confirmer l¿opinion de Gall, sur le siège du langage articulé ». (Garrison & Morton, 4618) Bouillaud distingue deux types d¿aphasie (expressive et amnésique). Il est le premier à assigner aux lobes frontaux le siège du langage articulé, et sera malheureusement le seul à défendre cette idée jusqu¿à la publication de Broca en 1861. Sur la base de plusieurs observations anatomo-cliniques, Bouillaud formule clairement ce que l¿on appellera la « double dissociation », principe qui sera à la base de la neuropsychologie. Ces conclusions suscitèrent l¿opposition d¿Andral et de Flourens. Les contemporains de Bouillaud étaient dans l¿ensemble réticents à accepter cette théorie, gardant sans doute en souvenir les concepts de la phrénologie (d¿autant plus que Bouillaud était membre fondateur de la Société phrénologique).
