        Die Auster und die Austernwirthschaft. Berlin, Wiegandt, Hempel and Parey, 1877. 8vo. With full-page wood-engraved map and 9 wood-engravings in text. Original publisher's cloth.

      BMC NH, p. 1327; DSB IX, pp. 431-432; not in Ekama. Surprisingly rare first edition of a great classic in ecology by Karl August Möbius (1825-1908). Although nominally devoted to oysters, comparing oyster beds and oyster fishing in several regions (the Waddenzee is discussed in several chapters) and discussing the practical implications of introducing new beds on the German coasts, the book is best known and most important for Möbius's view of the oyster beds as an entire ecosystem, a revolutionary idea in 1877. Its influence can still be felt today, and it is still used for the study of coastal ecosystems. Nordenskiöld calls Möbius "the pioneer in this field . . . he has created the modern system and methodics of oecology" (The History of Biology, 1929, p. 559). A. Thienemann, W.N. Sukacev and A. Tansley were clearly influenced by Möbius, an influence also apparent in more recent works by Ally, Dajoz, and Odum.Bookplate inside front cover. Very good copy, binding only very slightly rubbed.

        The Town of Lanark

      Smith, Elder & Co, London 1825 - Hand-coloured aquatint, 'drawn on the spot by I. Clark'. In excellent condition with the exception of some creasing in the lower left corner of sheet. A few tiny tears on the bottom margin. Crease along top right corner. Bottom right corner has been expertly mended and infilled. Trimmed within the platemark on all sides. Image size: 15 3/16 x 22 1/8 inches. An important topographical view of Robert Owen's New Lanark factory complex in Scotland, with Lanark, the county town of the county of Lanarkshire, visible in the background, from John Clark's 'Views in Scotland' There is some debate as to who executed this stunning print. There is no reference which identifies the author of this view, but there is some indication that it is the work of the celebrated painter John Heaviside Clark (1770-1863). Born in Scotland, Clark exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy between 1801 and 1832. He was primarily a landscape and marine painter, but he also produced a number of fine aquatints, which exhibit his exceptional talents as an engraver. Known as "Waterloo Clark" for his early sketches of the battle of Waterloo, he was a painter of some repute across the British Isles, and his beautiful views remain some of the most attractive images of the English countryside. A contemporary gazetteer describes New Lanark as follows 'a large and handsome manufacturing village, situated on the right bank of the Clyde, about 1 mile above the town of Lanark. It is the creation of the late philanthropic David Dale, who, in 1784, feued [sic] the site of the mills and village. The first mill was begun in 1785: since then various extensions have been made, until it is now the most extensive cotton manufacturing establishment in the county. About 1,400 of the inhabitants are employed directly by the mills. The majority of the present inhabitants are descendants of the original settlers collected from various parts of the Highlands. Mr. Dale was succeeded in the management of the mills by his son-in-law, Mr. Robert Owen, whose projects for the regeneration of the social system of mankind have made his name, and that of the village in which he first attempted to carry them out, notorious in the kingdom. In 1827 he ceased to have any connection with these works.' (Fullarton [publisher's] A Gazetteer of the World 1856, IV, p.638) Cf. Abbey Scenery 489; cf. Prideaux p.331;Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs, vol 3, p. 676.

Light foxing in a few places, interior otherwise fresh. * Only edition. The early nineteenth century was a watershed period in the history of penology. Many important contributions were made at this time by such luminaries as Bentham, Lieber, Livingston and Tocqueville. Roscoe's work was equally important. Believing that retribution should play no part in criminal jurisprudence, he advocated milder punishments, believing they would reform the criminal. He outlined these ideas in Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals (1819). He elaborated them, and responded to critics, in two later volumes: Further Observations on Penal Reform (1823) and Observations on Penal Jurisprudence...Part III (1825). Verplanck [1786-1870] was a prominent member of the New York Bar and an important reformer. He served four terms in the U.S. Congress, where he was chairman of the Ways and Means committee. OCLC locates 3 individual copies and 9 copies bound with Roscoe's other volumes. Not in Sweet & Maxwell. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 21:1106.

      Tompkins, Delaware DE 1825 - On offer is a remarkable historical journal with many dates the earliest of which is 1825. It begins with the heading: "A bill of the Delawrae River", and lists what research suggests to be stops and business along the the Delaware River waterway. There are hundreds of names, with the dates and amounts collected from each individual. Some coded references. There are also mentions of loans, the nature of the loans and when satisfied. Though a primitive work there are numerous references to Moses L. Ogden as his family was prominent to the Delaware area from pre-Revolutionary times. We believe besides some mentions of the lumber purchases and sales that Mr. Ogden collected taxes. Delaware historians will have a grand time completing the research on this journal. Book measures 4" x 6.5", is leatherbound (very dry) and the inner pages are linen. Overall condition is good.

This copy contains unrecorded later strikes of at least two of the plates, on paper watermarked J. Whatman / Turkey Mill, dated 1832. The copy is exceptionally fine, free of the usual foxing and with bright, fresh coloring.

        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 Fouqu&#142;. 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&#39;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&#39;s medieval romances, George Macdonald&#39;s spiritual fantasies, and to Wagner&#39;s Ring of the Nibelung. Macdonald and Morris are both acknowledged influences on Tolkien, and it has been argued that Tolkien&#39;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. Lane, British Racing Prints p.121; Mellon, British Sporting and Animal Prints 96; Siltzer, The Story of British Sporting Prints , p.145; Muir, A Descriptive Catalogue of the Engraved Works of J. F. 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.
