      Ipswich, London - R. Deck, Longman and Co., 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A bright, scarce first edition of Poems by Eliza Acton. Bound in the original publisher's boards, skilfully re-backed to suit. With the original half title. First Edition. Very scarce. Only appears once in auction records for the last 30 years (1995). Eliza Acton, 1799 - 1859, was an English poet and cook. Acton is probably most famous as the author who produced one of the country's first cookbooks aimed at the domestic reader rather than the professional cook or chef. In the book was included the first reciepe for Brussel Sprouts. At the age of seventeen she opened a school for girls, which remained open for four years. Her health was precarious and she apparently spent some time in France where she is rumoured to have had an unhappy love affair. She published her Poems after returning home and they enjoyed some small success. She subsequently published some single, longer poems, but it was her Modern Cookery (1845) that garnered her the widest acclaim; it was an immensely influential book which established the format for modern writing about cookery. Shortly after its publication she relocated to London but sadly died in 1859. Isabella Beeton's famous Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management is closely modelled on Acton's publications. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is wear to the extremities, including bumping and rubbing, with handling marks and discolouration to the boards. There is a repair to the front board. Internally the pages are bright with scattered spotting that does not affect the visibility of the text. Overall the condition is very good..

        Narrative of travels and discoveries in Northern and Central Africa, in the years 1822, 1823, and 1824 . extending across the great desert to the tenth degree of Northern latitude, and from Kouka in Bornou, to Sackatoo, the capital of the Fellatah

      John Murray, London 1826 - xlviii+335 pages with frontispiece, and 35 plates which include one hand colored and one a fold out map; [2]+269 pages with 8 plates and appendix. Quarto (10 1/2" x 8 3/4") in original leather with gilt vignette to edges. New spine with raised bands and gilt lettering. 1st edition. Hugh Clapperton was born in Annan, Dumfriesshire, where his father was a surgeon. He gained some knowledge of practical mathematics and navigation, and at thirteen was apprenticed on board a vessel which traded between Liverpool and North America. After having made several voyages across the Atlantic Ocean, he was impressed for the navy, in which he soon rose to the rank of midshipman. During the Napoleonic Wars he saw a good deal of active service, and at the storming of Port Louis, Mauritius, in November 1810, he was first in the breach and hauled down the French flag. In 1814 he went to Canada, was promoted to the rank of lieutenant, and to the command of a schooner on the Canadian lakes. In 1817, when the flotilla on the lakes was dismantled, he returned home on half-pay. In 1820 Clapperton removed to Edinburgh, where he made the acquaintance of Walter Oudney, who aroused in him an interest in African travel. Lieutenant G. F. Lyon, having returned from an unsuccessful attempt to reach Bornu from Tripoli, the British government determined on a second expedition to that country. Walter Oudney was appointed by Lord Bathurst, then colonial secretary, to proceed to Bornu as consul and Hugh Clapperton and Dixon Denham were added to the party. From Tripoli, early in 1822, they set out southward to Murzuk, and from this point Clapperton and Oudney visited the Ghat oasis. Kuka, of Bornu, was reached in February 17, 1823, and Lake Chad seen for the first time by Europeans. At Bornu the travellers were well received by the sultan; and after remaining in the country until December 14 they again set out for the purpose of exploring the course of the Niger. At Murmur, on the road to Kano, Oudney died (January 1824). Clapperton continued his journey alone through Kano to Sokoto, the capital of the Fula Empire, where by order of Sultan Bello he was obliged to stop, though the Niger was only five days' journey to the west. Worn out with his travel he returned by way of Zaria and Katsina to Kuka, where he again met Denham. The two travellers then set out, for Tripoli, reached on the January 26, 1825. An account of the travels was published in under the title of Narrative of Travels and Discoveries in Northern and Central Africa in the years 1822 - 1823 and 1824 (1826). Immediately after his return Clapperton was raised to the rank of commander, and sent out with another expedition to Africa, the sultan Bello of Sokoto having professed his eagerness to open up trade with the west coast. Clapperton landed at Badagry in the Bight of Benin, and started overland for the Niger on the December 7 1825, having with him his servant Richard Lemon Lander, Captain Pearce, and Dr. Morrison, navy surgeon and naturalist. Before the month was out Pearce and Morrison were dead of fever. Clapperton continued his journey, and, passing through the Yoruba country, in January 1826 he crossed the Niger at Bussa, the spot where Mungo Park had died twenty years before. In July he arrived at Kano. Thence he went to Sokoto, intending afterwards to go to Bornu. The sultan, however, detained him, and being seized with dysentery he died near Sokoto. Clapperton was the first European to make known from personal observation the Hausa states, which he visited soon after the establishment of the Sokoto Empire by the Fula. In 1829 appeared the Journal of a Second Expedition into the Interior of Africa, &c., by the late Clapperton, to which was prefaced a biographical sketch of the explorer by his uncle, Lieut.-colonel S. Clapperton. Richard Lemon Lander, who had brought back the journal of his master, also published Records of Captain Clapperton's Last Expedition to Africa . . . with the subsequent [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Voyage autour du monde, exécuté par ordre du Roi, sur la corvette de Sa Majesté, La Coquille, pendant les années 1822, 1823, 1824 et 1825. ZOOLOGIE par Lesson et Garnot.

      - Paris, A. Bertrand, 1826-1830. 4 text volumes (bound in 2). Large 4to (295 x 225mm) and 1 folio atlas (492 x 315mm), with 157 (2 plain) beautifully colour-printed engraved plates, finished by hand. Contemporary half calf, gilt lettered spines (one text volume recently bound to match, the remaining volumes a bit rubbed) . The complete zoological part of Duperrey's famous circumnavigation with the "Coquille". Louis-Isidore Duperrey (1786-1865) made his first voyage around the world with L. de Freycinet in 1817-1820. Already 2 years later he set sail on the "Coquille" with J.S.C. Dumont d'Urville as second in command. On this long voyage, an impressive array of geological, botanical and zoological specimens were collected, which were housed in the "Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle" after their return in Marseille in 1825. On board the well-known French pharmacist and ornithologist R. Lesson served as naturalist and surgeon. The large collections and exhaustive zoological descriptions (especially regarding the birds) were made by him, together with P. Garnot and F.E. Guérin-Méneville. Of the beautiful 157 plates, 44 depict birds (of which many were new to science), 38 fishes, 9 mammals, 7 reptiles, 16 molluscs, 16 zoophytes, 5 crustaceans, and 22 insects. All are very finely colour-printed (many finished by hand) after drawings by J.G. Prêtre, R.P. Lesson, Bévalet, Prévost, and a few others."The aims of the expedition, it will be remembered, had been largely scientific and Duperrey had well carried out his instructions in this respect. The geologists thanked Lesson especially for the 300 samples of rock he had brought back. D'Urville was praised for his botanical work, and the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle received with gratitude 1,200 insects, 450 of which had not been available before, most of them collected by d'Urville. There were in addition 264 birds and quadrupeds, 63 reptiles, and 288 fishes, more than 80 of them new specimens (Dunmore II, pp. 152-153).The work is usually found with some foxing. In our copy about one third of the plates have been more or less seriously affected.Fine Bird Books 73; Nissen ZBI, 1210 & IVB, 280; Wood 327; B.M.(N.H.) II, 604. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

As late as 1913, annual sales exceeded a quarter of a million copies a year, and total sales of the arithmetic books alone are estimated at 120 million copies. The success of Ray's Arithmetic series prompted his publisher to seek an author for a set of readers. They chose William Holmes McGuffey, who joined Ray on the faculty of Woodward College, and where he wrote the McGuffey Readers which surpassed even Ray's Arithmetics to become the most popular textbooks ever written. .

        American Bible Printed in Spanish: La Biblia Sagrada, a saber: El Antiguo y el Nuevo Testamento, traducidos de la Vulgata Latina en espanol.

      Edicion Estereotipica por A. Chandler,, New York: 1826 - A scarce American Bible printed in Spanish, the personal copy of Ebenezer Nye (1799 - 1891), ship's captain from Sandwich Massachusetts, who was the master of the brig Cicero when it sailed on a trading voyage from New York to Maracaibo, Venezuela. The Mystic Seaport at Connecticut owns Captain Nye's journal from this voyage which "Mentions shipboard routine, and navigational information. Cicero was driven ashore and wrecked while approaching Maracaibo. The crew fought off Indians and salvaged part of the cargo. (Nye then spent 4 months in Bogata, returning to Maracaibo in November 1827.)" The front free end paper has Nye's signature, and below it, "Maracaibo, 22 July 1827", which suggests that this Bible may have been acquired in gratitude for surviving the shipwreck and subsequent attack. The August 11, 1891 obituary in the Sandwich Observer notes that "Capt. Nye was a proficient scholar in all geographical, geometrical, mathematical and astronomical studies, and many of the younger navigators of the bay cruisers are graduates of his winter evening school he taught for their benefit. His observation of the planets on the bright starry evenings were ever a delight to the school teachers and scholars of his village, and writing up his surveys of harbors and rivers along our coast for "Blunt's American Coast Pilot", rendered him a proficient pilot for nearly every harbor along the entire length of our coast and the Gulf of Mexico." Nye's son Ebenezer F. Nye was also a ship's captain, master of the Mt. Wollaston, which disappeared in the Arctic.Secondary title: "Nueva Edition, a costa de la socieded Americana de la Biblia, conforme a la segunda, que revista y corregida publico su mismo traductor el ano de 1797 en Madrid.

From the Svenska Läkaresällskapets Bibliotek, with the library&#39;s 19th century stamp on the title and front cover and library label inside front cover.</p><p>(1) First Edition of the first original study of acupuncture published in North America, and one of the earliest American publications on the alleviation of pain. Franklin Bache, great-grandson of Benjamin Franklin, was the first American to perform original research on acupuncture. In 1825 Bache had issued his translation of J. Morand&#39;s Mémoire sur l&#39;acupuncture (1825) under the title Memoir on Acupuncturation; this was the first book on acupuncture to be published in America (see Garrison-Morton 6374.15). The same year, Bache conducted his own experimental study of acupuncture, which he recorded in the present paper.</p><p>"As assistant physician at the state penitentiary in Philadelphia, Bache determined in 1825 to test acupuncture on the prisoners whom he was called upon to serve. With the aid of a colleague, he used the needles to treat 12 different prisoners who were suffering from highly painful afflictions: three with muscular rheumatism, four with &#39;chronic pains,&#39; three with neuralgia, and two with ophthalmia. He also used acupuncture among the prisoners in relieving several lesser pains, including a headache accompanying bilious fever, the head pain of an epileptic, an elastic tumor near the elbow joint, and a dull pain caused by pulmonic inflammation.</p><p>"Bache reported varying successes. In summarizing 17 subsequent cases, some of which were not among the prisoners, he noted that seven "were completely cured, seven considerably relieved, and in the remaining three cases, the remedy produced no effect." </p>"Over all, Bache was convinced that the measure offered great promise for "removing and mitigating pain." He concluded that it could well be &#39;a proper remedy in almost all diseases, whose prominent symptom is pain&#39;" (Cassedy, pp. 894-895).</p><p>Bache was one of the very few American physicians in the early nineteenth century to adopt acupuncture as a method of pain relief, despite the fact that the practice was enjoying a considerable vogue in Europe at the time. This volume of the North American Medical and Surgical Journal includes several brief abstracts from European journals on the uses of acupuncture; see pp. 225-227 and 448-449.</p><p>(2) First English Translation of Ten Rhyne&#39;s aphorisms on acupuncture, originally included in his Dissertatio de arthritide (1683; see Garrison-Morton 6374.10). Ten Rhyne&#39;s "De acupuntura" represents the first detailed description of acupuncture published in the West. The anonymous translators added a brief historical introduction and a copy of Ten Rhyne&#39;s illustration of an acupuncture needle and hammer.</p><p>(3) Hewson&#39;s article on ecthyma (a skin infection similar to impetigo) is remarkable for its hand-colored plates, which are among the earliest to appear in an American medical periodical. </p><p>Volume 1 of the North American Medical and Surgical Journal is very rare on the market. This is the first copy we have handled in 40 years of trading. Nor have we ever heard of an offprint of Bache&#39;s paper.

        Sketches of a Tour to the Lakes, of the Character and Customs of the Chippeway Indians. And of incidents connected with the Treaty of Fond du Lac. Also a Vocabulary of the Algic or Chippeway Language

      viii-[9]-493+[1] pages with 6 of 29 plates, three appendices: Copy of the Journal of the Proceedings under the treaty of Fond Du Lac, as noted by the Secretary, TREATY Between the United States of American and the Chippeway tribe of Indians; concluded August 5, 1826 and Vocabulary of the Algic, or Chippeway Language. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in original blind stamped cloth with gilt lettering to spine. (Hpwes: M132, Sabin 43407, Field 994, Pilling: 2383) First edition.Thomas McKenney started as a merchant. In 1815 he ran a commission store near the ferry wharf in Georgetown. He was also on the board of directors of the Bank of Columbia, in Georgetown, with John Cox, John Threlkeld, and Henry Foxall. In 1816 McKenney secured a Federal appointment as Superintendent of Indian Trade. In those days delegations of Indians that came to Washington generally stayed in hotel rooms; the beds had been removed to accommodate their preference for sleeping on the ground. Some of these representatives of southern and western tribes also visited Weston, McKenney?s farm on Georgetown Heights. In 1820, Sans Nerf, a chief of the Great Osages, and two companions, were there. In the winter of 1821-22 a delegation of Pawnee, Sauk, Fox, Menominee, Miami, Sioux, and Chippewa Indians came to the farm, and in 1824, Cherokee chief Elijah Hicks was there. The Factory System of government trading posts involved commodities as coffee, sugar, lead, salt, penknives, northwest blankets, calico, and strouding (coarse woolen cloth used in the Indian trade). What came back were furs. The Factory System ended in 1822, over opposition by the John Jacob Astor?s American Fur Company, and by manufacturers and merchants who resented McKenney, and the Georgetown merchants he favored. One such merchant was John Cox, importer and banker, and later mayor of Georgetown. Cox loaned money to McKenney to buy Weston, and McKenney bought from Cox for the Indian trade, nearly to the exclusion of other merchants. From 1824 to 1830, McKenney served as Superintendent of Indian Affairs. While his upbringing as a merchant had no doubt prepared him for the earlier position, supervising the Indian Trade, his qualifications to be an architect of Indian policy are harder to picture. McKenney?s transactions with the ?civilized? southern tribes had, at one time, persuaded him that Indians might be able to adopt white values, and McKenney made several experiments along these lines of his own (albeit at government expense). In 1818, James Lawrence MacDonald, son of a Choctaw woman and a white man, raised by Baltimore Quakers, came to Weston, McKenney?s farm on Georgetown Heights, and worked for him at the War Department. In 1827 McKenney brought two Creek boys back to Washington to be educated. One was William Barnard, son of Major Timpoochee Barnard, an ally of Andrew Jackson in the Creek War. A boy named Lee Compere was William Barnard?s companion. The boys remained with McKenney for three years. Finally, in 1828, Dougherty Colbert, age 15, the son of a Chickasaw chief, came to live at Weston, to attend school in Georgetown. Colbert was praised by McKenney for losing the Chickasaw language! Although these views would seem to conform to those generally ascribed to Andrew Jackson, in 1830 McKenney was dismissed for not being in harmony with the Indian policy of the Jackson administration. At the same time President Jackson ordered the War Department to remove McKenney?s Indian boys from school and return them to their people. The present volume describes the author's expedition to the Chippewa, Winnegago, and Menominee tribes and the signing of the treaty of Fond du Lac in 1827.Condition:Six of 29 plates, lacks all the colored plates and the frontispiece. Old institutional embossed stamped to title and institutional book plate to front paste down, spine professional repaired, foxing through out else a good to very good copy.
