1825. 17 issues of the Recorder and Telegraph: Vol. x, nos 26-31, 37, 39, 40-46, 49-50. Each number 4pp, measuring approx. 530 by 360mm. Removed from a volume, ownership signature to upper left margin, a little thumbed and toned, though quarter page loss to a leaf in no. 28. Boston, Nathaniel Willis, 24 June - 9 December, Rare, the original correspondence as it appeared in the Republican newspaper, Recorder & Telegraph, edited and published by the congregationalist, Nathaniel Willis. It subsequently appeared in pamphlet form under the title Essays on Slavery: republished from the Boston Telegraph & Recorder for 1825 (Amherst, 1826 - see Sabin, 99610). The correspondence broadly concerns solutions to immediate emancipation, with many agreeing with the American Colonization Society that Liberia was the only viable option. David Brion Davis supplies an overview of the correspondence: ?In 1825 the Boston Recorder and Telegraph published a long correspondence that further clarifies the origins of immediatism. After arguing that slavery was unlawful and suggesting that slaves might have a right to revolt, ?Vigornius? [Samuel M. Worcester] asserted that 'the slave-holding system must be abolished; and in order to the accomplishment of this end, immediate, determined measures must be adopted for the ultimate emancipation over every slave within our territories.' This was the position of the later Kentucky and New York abolitonists, but Vigornius combined it with strong faith in the American Colonization Society. He was bitterly attacked by 'A Carolinian,' who accused him of believi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Broadside; Murder; Rawlin, Stephen; Hardy, Thomas
1825. Not Recorded by OCLC or COPAC [Broadside]. [Murder]. Rawlin, Stephen. Hardy, Thomas. A True and Particular Account of a Shocking Murder, Committed on the Body of William Richardson, with an Iron Poker, by Two Pitmen Named Stephen Rawlin and Thomas Hardy, At Bishop Auckland, on Saturday September the 24th, 1825. Gateshead: W. Stephenson, Printer, 1825. 13-1/8" x 6" broadside pasted to 13-1/4" x 8" sheet. Text in single column below headline. Moderate toning, minor edgewear to sheet. A well-preserved copy. ,250. * The murder appears to have been the result of a brawl in a pub. A few minutes after it began, Rawlin called for help to his comrade Hardy, who smashed Richardson in the head with a large iron poker. They left Richardson for dead and proceeded home. After a long and solemn investigation, the jury returned with a verdict of Wilful Murder. The broadside indicates a pattern of similar crimes. "This is the third Murder that has been committed in the county of Durham within the last three years, under very similar circumstances, in the year 1823, Joseph Spraggon was murdered by Stanwick Newton on a Saturday night, at the door of a Public House, in Middle Rainton- In 1824, Henry Curry was murdered by Thomas Atkinson, on a Saturday night at the door of a Public House, at Birtly.- And in 1825, the above melancholy affair has occurred under the like incidents." This appears to be an unrecorded broadside. No copies listed on COPAC or OCLC.

Ebülgâzî Bahadir Han, Khan of Khorezm / Frähn, Christian Martin (ed.).
1825. Folio (27 x 42 cm). (2), IX, (1), 215, (1) pp. With engraved title-page bearing the Romanzoff arms; text surrounded throughout by meander borders. Dark green half cloth over black boards (ca. 1900). Editio princeps. The present "Sagara-i Türk" (Genealogy of the Turks) by the Khân of Khwarazm, Abu'l Ghâzî Bahâdur (1603-64), along with the same author's "Sagara-i Tarâkima" (Genealogy of the Turkmens), forms the foundational body of Chagatai literature and historiography. Chagatai is a Turkic language once widely spoken in Central Asia; it remained the shared literary language there until the early 20th century. It is the common predecessor of Uzbek (spoken by some 33 million native speakers in Uzbekistan and elsewhere in Central Asia) and Uyghur (spoken primarily by the Uyghur people in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region of Western China, though significant communities of speakers are located in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan). - The text was revised for publication by the Tatar scholar Ibrahim Chalfin and edited by Frähn, based on a 1733 manuscript copy prepared by Georg Jacob Kehr. The history of the Saybanid dynasty from the mid-15th century to 1663 (including the eventful life of the Khân himself) had been translated into German as early as 1720/21 by Strahlenberg and Schenström, with the help of a Bukharan imam; their effort formed the basis of a French, English, and Russian translation, while the German text did not see publication until 1780. The present work is the first publication of the text in the original language. In the preface, Frähn discusses the his … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edward William Lane
and-35, Partly From Notes Made During a Former Visit to That Country. And-35, Partly From Notes Made During a Former Visit to That Country in the Years 1825-26-27 and-28 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The scarce 1836 first edition of Edward William Lane's insightful travel work discussing in detail the lives of Egyptians in the early to mid nineteenth century, illustrated throughout. The first edition of this work. Complete in two volumes. This work is scarcely found in two volumes together. 'An Account of the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians' is an important work, documenting in detail the everyday lives of people in Egypt in the nineteenth century. Lane had already visited Egypt and done work there, but revisited in 1833 to expand upon his notes. Though he did detailed research, he found he was handicapped in writing about women, as there was a social gender segregation in Egypt at this time. This meant he couldn't get a close-up view of Egyptian women. This was a subject of great interest at the time, so he had to rely on the information passed on to him by Egyptian men. Years later, however, he sent his sister, Sophia Lane Poole, to go to women-only areas, and she ended up publishing the work 'The Englishwoman in Egypt'. This work was very well received when it was published, and became a bestseller. Volume I is illustrated with sixteen plates and numerous in-text illustrations. Volume II is illustrated with eleven plates and numerous in-text illustrations.

Fellner, Ferdinand August (1799 Frankfurt am Main Stuttgart 1859)
1825. Radierung, auf Bütten. 17,9:13,2 cm. Literatur: Nagler Monogrammisten II, 2067; vgl. Thieme/Becker XI, S. 375. Die einzige bekannte Radierung Fellners! Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß der Familie Fellner, Frankfurt am Main. Nach dem Jurastudium hat sich der 1825 unter die Advokaten seiner Heimatstadt Aufgenommene autodidaktisch zum Maler ausgebildet. Im Oktober 1825 ging er nach München, wo ihn vornehmlich P. von Cornelius (1783-1867) beeinflusste. 1831 ließ er sich in Stuttgart nieder, wo er bis an sein Lebensende blieb. Seine hervorragendste Bedeutung hat Fellner als Zeichner, der aus Geschichte, Sage und Dichtung mit unerschöpflicher Phantasie immer neue Begebenheiten darstellte und sich dabei bewusst an den Charakter altdeutscher Kunst anschloß. Ein Teil seines zeichnerischen Nachlasses befindet sich heute im Städelschen Kunstintstitut, Frankfurt a.M.

GRUITHUISEN, Franz von Paula
No place, no date (but ca. 1825). Lithographed map of the full moon on a single unfolded sheet, pasted onto cardboard, total size 410 x 495 mm. Very minor, mostly marginal, browning and soiling. ---- EXCEPTIONALLY RARE separate map of the moon by or after Gruithausen in orthographic projection, like Johann Tobias Mayer's map with lunar coordinates. In addition there are the mare and prominent features named after Riccioli. This map is probably the first in which mare names are translated to any other language (here German). Gruithuisen published his map first in 'Selenognostische Fragmente', 1821, then in Gedenkschriften der Bonner Akademie der Naturforscher, 1822 and in Berliner Astronomisches Jahrbuch, 1822. The present map appears to have been redrawn from Gruithuisen's original at some later date, with the nomenclature possibly copied (with some spelling errors) from, Johann Schröter's version of Mayer's map, except that at #55 the name Schröter ("after Gruithuisen" -- a reference to his "city") is inserted and the remaining numbers are increased by one (see the-Moon Wiki Map Collection, showing this map). Baron Franz von Paula Gruithuisen (March 19, 1774 - 1852) was a Bavarian physician and astronomer. He taught medical students before becoming a professor of astronomy at the University of Munich in 1826. Like others before and since his time, Gruithuisen believed that the Earth's moon was inhabitable. He made multiple observations of the lunar surface that supported his beliefs, including his announcement of the discovery of a city in the rough terrain to the north of … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Yearbook of Oliver Ellsworth Huntington
1/4 leather. The 1825 Yale College Yearbook (then called "Class-book"). This copy belonged to a student named Oliver Ellsworth Huntington, who had this copy bound in a decorative red leather over marbled boards, with his name in gilt block letters printed across the front panel. This is by far the earliest yearbook this bookseller has seen, some 14 years before the advent of photography. Apparently, each Yale student was given a blank book at the beginning of the school year and was expected to have his classmates fill the book in during the course of the year with handwritten tributes to the particular graduating senior. Apart from the yearbook's obvious scarcity in its own right, what's also so notable is some of the classmates of Huntington who wrote tributes (many of them quoted poems but many also long, heartfelt digressions). Among Huntington's classmates were Samuel Augustus Maverick, the legendary Texas lawyer and land baron who was an original signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. (With his fiercely independent streak, Maverick was also responsible for inspiring the creation of the word "Maverick"). In addition to Maverick, other classmates included 1) Rev. George William Perkins (Abolitionist active in the Underground Railroad); 2) Elias Warner Leavenworth (Mayor of Syracuse and Congressman from NY {1875-1877}); 3) William Moseley Holland (Co-Valedictorian); 4) Willis Hall (Co-Valedictorian and NY State Attorney General {1839-1842}); 5) Rev.

London: S. and J. Fuller, 1825. Oblong folio, 262 x 213 mms., pp. 15 [16 blank], engraved coloured frontispiece and 12 other coloured plates at end of volume, 39 uncoloured plates, 12 aquatint plates, contemporary half roan, marbled boards (very worn), leather label on front cover; previous bookseller's note stating "Replacement title/ Lacking one Plate," plates a bit soiled and foxed at extremities, front hinge broken with cover just holding on, a fair copy only, but he colour plates are fine. The artist and landscape painter David Cox (1783 - 1859) produced a number of manuals to teach drawing, so many in fact, that Stephen Wildman in his ODNB article on Cox affirms that the books were so influential that "they had the unforeseen consequence of training a whole generation of amateurs to imitate his style." His reptation had its ups and downs, but he was often compared to Constable and Turner. In the late 1850s there were several exhibitions of his works, leading the Art Journal to remark, "We have sometimes heard people say they cannot understand Cox [and] pity that they could not inhale the sweet breath of his hayfields and purple heaths, nor see the rushing of his summer showers, nor repose with him under the shadows of his thick umbrageous elms and his graceful ash-trees. Not understand Cox!, why there is hardly a peasant in the land who goes to his daily toil by the hedgerows, or in the fields, who could not thoroughly feel the truth and beauty of his landscapes."

Light soiling to title page and final leaf, minor tears and chipping to some leaves, including title page, light browning and foxing throughout. Early owner annotations to title page, inkspots to a few leaves. A scarce title. * Only edition. Carter, a thief and petty criminal, was executed for the rape of an elderly woman resident of the public almshouse in Worcester. Carter confessed to the crime, and offered drunkenness and his lack of moral instruction as excuses. A sociological text, the Brief Sketch says almost nothing about Carter's crime and trial. In the form of six lessons, it outlines the steps that led him to the gallows. It argues, overall, that a childhood education would have transformed him into a law-abiding, productive adult.
