        A Letter to the Editor of the Edinburgh Weekly Journal from Malachi Malagrowther, Esq. on the Proposed Change of Currency and Other Late Alterations, as They Affect, or are Intended to Affect, the Kingdom of Scotland [With:] A Second Letter - [And:] A Third Letter -

      Edinburgh: Printed by James Ballantyne and Company for William Blackwood, Edinburgh: and T. Cadell, Strand, London, 1826 - "In this series of 'Letters' defending the issuance of Scottish banknotes Scott benefits from his work on Swift by patterning the Malachi Malagrowther letters on Swift's Drapier's Letters" (Todd & Bowden p. 621). "In February 1826 there may have been a degree of calculation in Scott's entering the debate on a government measure introduced to deal with the economic crisis which would have restricted the rights of the Scottish banks to issue their own notes, but Scott represented it as a nationalist issue, 'the late disposition to change every thing in Scotland to an English model' (Journal, 94). In February and March he wrote three letters to the editor of the Edinburgh Weekly Journal in which he used the currency issue as an exemplum for the larger tendency. The letters caused a sensation. Ministerial friends were very angry, but withdrew the measure. The banks were grateful; taking a lead from his old rival in love, William Forbes, they agreed to the creation of a trust for the settling of Scott's debts, and The Letters of Malachi Malagrowther, as the letters are now known, is recognized as a classic in political argument" (DNB). A complete set, uncommon (SCOTLAND) Second edition of the first two Letters, First edition of the Third Letter. 3 volumes bound in one vols., 8vo. 60; 86, [2, blank]; 39 pp. Half red morocco preserving nineteenth-century marbled boards. Fine. Todd & Bowden 186Ac, 187Ac, 188Ab. Kress III C1778, C1781, C1784 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Métamorphoses d'Arlequin.

      Bruxelles: , 1826. - Scarce Odyssey of Harlequin As a Character In France's Political Drama 1791-1826[LEPRINCE, Xavier]. Métamorphoses de'Alequin. Parades. [Jouées sur le Théâtre Français. Bruxelles: n.p., 1826]. First edition. Oblong quarto. Twelve hand-colored lithographed stub-mounted plates, size: 10 5/8 x 14 1/8 inches (271 x 360 mm).Bound late 19th century by G. Carayon in half deep cordovan straight-grain morocco over marbled boards. Bookplate of Ch. Bouret on front pastedown. Some very light foxing mainly on the first plate but still a fine copy.Extremely scarce, with only one copy (at the BN) recorded by OCLC/KVK, and no copies coming to auction within the last thirty-six years. The BN atrributes this album to Henri-Gerard Fontallard but that cannot be so. Close comparison with caricatures signed by Leprince and Fontallard conclusively demonstrate that the style here is dramatically different than Fontallard's but extremely close to Leprince's, particularly in the faces of the figures depicted.A fascinating and intriguing album that appears to be a political allegory with the theater as backdrop and Harlequin as character in the political events in France 1791-1826. The fact that the album was published, without publisher or artist attribution, in Belgium rather than France strongly suggests fear of running afoul of French press censorship laws of the era.Auguste-Xavier Leprince (1799-1826), French painter and lithographer, 'was the son and pupil of the painter and lithographer Anne-Pierre Leprince and the elder brother of the painters Robert-Leopold Leprince (1800-47) and Gustave Leprince (1810-37). Leprince recieved a medal at his first Salon of 1819 for one of six entries, five of which wew landscapes of 17th century Dutch inspiration, which came possibly via the work of Jean-Louis Demarne. Leprince quickly learnt to vary the contents of his paintings: at the Salon of 1822 his entries included three Paris street scenes, three portraits, and two scenes on board a frigate. His numerous Paris street scenes usually depicted some well-known contemporary event.In the last year of his short life Leprince showed himself to be a sensitive watercolour painter and lithographer." (Grove Dictionary of Art)."G. Carayon was a 19th century French bookbinder. Yvan Christ, in an article in L'Estampille, describes his activity: 'Around 1875, bookbinder Carayon became an art cartonnage [paper over boards] bookbinder, featuring popular bindings in white velin boards and enhanced watercolors, using silk, cloth, leather, and Japon paper. The success of his cartonnage bindings was great. But bindings he made in a more conventional manner should not be forgotten'" (Trans. from Devaux, Dix Siecles de Reliere, p. 351).The Plates:1. 1re.

        Letter addressed to Mrs. [Elizabeth] Fry signed by William Edward Parry

      Sir William Edward PARRY, London 1826 - Autograph Letter signed, dated Admiralty, May 18th, 1826, addressed to Mrs. [Elizabeth] Fry, Newgate. 21 lines, 1 p., with conjugate address leaf, approx. 5x7 inches, hinged on the left with linen onto a larger album page, very good condition.Letter of introduction:My dear friend,Permit me to have the pleasure of introducing to you the Miss Waldegraves, sisters of Lord Radstock, very pious amiable people, and very desirous of your personal acquaintance. The tickets which I deputed to Bichenda to ask you for were for these ladies, than whom I can assure you, few individuals will more rightly appreciate the privilege you have thus given them. I am my dear friend, with truest esteem, very sincerely yours, W. Parry.", The Misses Waldegrave referred to by Parry in this letter were the sisters of George Granville Waldegrave, Second Baron Radstock, 1786- 1857, a British Naval Officer and Vice-Admiral in 1851.The recipient of the letter was almost certainly Elizabeth Fry, 1780- 1845, the famous British prison reformer, who had in 1817 formed an association for the improvement of female prisoners in Newgate, and later instituted an order of nursing sisters.The original Elizabeth Fry Society of Canada was founded in 1939 by Member of Parliament Agnes MacPhailSir William Edward Parry [1790 - 1855] was an English rear-admiral and Arctic explorer, who in 1827 attempted one of the earliest expeditions to the North Pole. He reached 82?45 North latitude, setting the record for human exploration farthest North that stood for nearly five decades before being surpassed at 83?20 26 by Albert Hastings Markham in 1875-1876.

        Bestimmung des Gesetzes

      Halle: Expedition des Vereins, 1826. <p>Announcing a Comprehensive Law for Electric Current</p><p>Ohm, Georg Simon (1789-1854). Bestimmung des Gesetzes, nach welchem Metalle die Contaktelectricitat leiten, nebst einem Entwurf zu einer Theorie des Voltaischen Apparates und des Schweiggerschen Multiplicators. In Jahrb. d. Chemie u. Physik 16 (1826): 137-66, plus plate figures 1-2 on plate III. Whole volume, 8vo. xvi, 496pp.2 folding printed charts, 3 folding engraved plates. Halle: In der Expedition des Vereins zur Verbreitung von Naturkenntniss, 1826. 201 x 122 mm. Half sheep c. 1826, a bit rubbed, light wear to corners & edges. Minor foxing, otherwise very good. </p><p>First Edition. Ohm began publishing his electricity researches in 1825 with his "Vorlaufige Anzeige des Gesetzes, nach welchem Metalle die Contaktelektricitat leiten," a paper in which he sought to find a functional relationship between the decrease in the electromagnetic force exerted by a current-carrying wire and the length of the wire. Although this paper contained some fundamental errors, it was remarkable for its direct foundation on experiment, a characteristic of all Ohm&#39;s early papers. In February and April of the following year Ohm published two important papers dealing separately with the two major aspects of his theory of galvanic electricity, which he would later unify in his landmark Die galvanische Kette (1827).</p><p> The first paper, which we are offering here, "announced a comprehensive law for electric current that brought order into the hitherto confused collection of phenomena pertaining to the closed circuit, including the solution to the problem of conductibility as he and others had conceived of it" (DSB). </p><p>Ohm&#39;s second paper, "Versuch einer Theorie der durch galvanische Krafte hervorgebrachten elektroskopischen Erscheinungen" (Ann. Phys. 6 [1826]: 459-69; 7, 45-54, 117-18), "broke new ground in associating an electric tension with both open and closed galvanic circuits" (DSB), and contained the first statement of Ohm&#39;s Law.</p><p> "Ohm&#39;s experimental procedure in ["Bestimmung des Gesetzes"] was analogous to that which he had used earlier but was modified in several significant ways. First, at Poggendorff&#39;s suggestion, he now used a thermoelectric pile in order to eliminate the fluctuations in current strength accompanying the voltaic pile, fluctuations that Ohm attributed to changes produced by the current in the distribution (Vertheilung) of the components in the liquid conductor. Second, he sought a direct relationship between the electromagnetic force of the current and the entire length of the connecting wire. . . . "[I]n the paper in question Ohm simply observed that the data from each of his several sets of experiments were very closely represented by the formula X = a/(b + x), where X is the strength of the electromagnetic effect-which he took as a measure of the electric current-of a conductor of length x on the magnetic needle of a Coulomb torsion balance, and where a and b are constants the exact nature of which he proposed to determine from additional series of carefully controlled experiments. The observation that b remained constant for all series of experiments, whereas a varied with temperature, led Ohm to conclude that a depended solely on the electromotive force (erregende Kraft) of the pile and b solely on the resistance (Leitungswiderstand or, more commonly, Widerstandslange) of the remaining portion of the circuit, in particular that of the pile itself. He also observed that the electromotive force of the thermoelectric pile appeared to be exactly proportional to the temperature difference at its end points. . . . " </p><p>"After reconfirming the validity of his law by further series of experiments, Ohm exhibited its explanatory powers on some of the chief unsolved problems which had occupied scientists working on the pile; and he showed how it also cast light on a number of other previously reported but poorly understood experimental findings. . . . The fruitful application of Ohm&#39;s simple law to existing problems was an explanatory tour de force" (DSB). </p>

      Harvey and Darton, London 1826 - First Edition. 5.5 x 3.5 inches, recased preserving contemporary leather spine with gilt type, and marbled boards, worn corners, with minor scuffing, engraved frontis, and half-title. (2), iv, 168pp., [4pp publisher's ads]. Some off-setting from frontispiece to title-page, Old unsigned bookplate at front pastedown and previous owner gift inscription hand written on reverse of frontis, Elizabeth Jane Bolton given to her by her Dear Mother. Overall a very attractive copy in very good+ condition., Uncommon initial printing. In a series of letters, written in 1821, by a family of educated emigrants, describing the voyage and journey from Quebec to final settlement in what is now Hamilton. They were befriended by the Hamilton family and started the first school there, chiefly attended by Indian children. Told with simplicity. It has value as being authentic. One of the earliest children's books to celebrate the frontier life in Canada; Traill emigrated from England to Canada with her husband in 1832. Insightful comment from Canadian Biography Online:ìPerhaps the most interesting of these books (published between 1819 & 1831) is The young emigrants; or, pictures of Canada; calculated to amuse and instruct the minds of youth (1826). In it, Catharine drew upon her fascination with Daniel Defoeís Robinson Crusoe, travel books about the Canadas, including those of John Howison, and the letters of friends who, like her younger brother Samuel*, had immigrated there in the 1820s. The comment of one of her young emigrants ñ ìI sometimes think I should like to spend my life in exploring the face of this astonishing countryî ñ vividly suggests Catharineís capacity to find stimulation and involvement in the idea of new experiences, however challenging or demanding they might be.îOsborne (1958 ed.) p. 192.TPL 1424 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Jerusalem Delivered; Translated into English Spenserian Verse from the Italian of Torquato Tasso. With a Life of the Author.

      London: John Murray:, Second edition, 1826 - 3 vols., 8vo, [clvi, 305pp] + [iv, 350pp] + [390pp], engraved portrait frontispiece of Tasso from an original picture presented to the Author by W. Roscoe, engraved decorations, facsimile of Tasso's hand-writing, a.e.g., contemp. full navy calf with gilt ruled borders and gilt decorated outer edges, extensive gilt decoration to spine in six compartments with contrasting morocco title & volume labels, some light wear, but generally a VG++ clean set in a handsome binding. Jerusalem Delivered (La Gerusalemme liberata) is an epic poem by the Italian poet Torquato Tasso first published in 1581, which tells a largely mythified version of the First Crusade in which Catholic knights, led by Godfrey of Bouillon, battle Muslims in order to take Jerusalem. The poem is composed of eight line stanzas grouped into 20 cantos of varying length. The work belongs to the Renaissance tradition of the Italian romantic epic poem, and Tasso frequently borrows plot elements and character types directly from Ariosto's Orlando furioso. Tasso's poem also has elements inspired by the classical epics of Homer and Virgil (especially in those sections of their works that tell of sieges and warfare). One of the most characteristic literary devices in Tasso's poem is the emotional conundrum endured by characters torn between their heart and their duty; the depiction of love at odds with martial valour or honour is a central source of lyrical passion in the poem.

        1826 Intriguing Unrecorded Oil Portrait of James Madison Attributed to Samuel Morse

      Portrait of James Madison in Oil on stretched canvas, 20" X 16". On verso is stenciled "N.Y." in oval and inscribed beneath in unknown hand, "James Madison / Rector of the University of Virginia / 1826 / Painted by / Samuel F.B. Morse / of the / National Academy of Design / N.Y." Stretcher frame replaced for preservation. Light crazing, else fine condition. The fourth President spent much of his life and career living reverently in the powerful shadow of Thomas Jefferson, eventually retiring to a Virginia tobacco plantation near Monticello. Upon Jefferson's death on July 4, 1826, nine years after his two-term presidency, Madison continued his homage by assuming the role of Rector at Jefferson's University of Virginia, and held the position until his death a decade later. It is likely this portrait was prepared in honor of this appointment, and depicts a 77 year-old statesman in the somber tones and garb befitting his new position.

        Imaginary Conversations of Literary Men and Statesmen

      - London - Henry Colburn, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Full calf leather bindings with gilt titles to spines and speckled fore edges. The first three volumes (of five) of Landor&#39;s Imaginary Conversations. Imaginary Conversations is the best-known prose work of the English poet and author Walter Savage Landor. It comprises of imaginary conversations between personalities of classical Greece and Rome, poets and authors, statesmen and women, and fortunate and unfortunate individuals. roots of the compositions lay in his childhood as he wrote later When I was younger. . [a]mong the chief pleasures of my life, and among the commonest of my occupations was the bringing before me such heroes and heroines of antiquity, such poets and sages, such of the prosperous and unfortunate as most interested me [and e]ngaging them in conversations best suited to their characters. The unenthusiastic reception of Count Julian demonstrated that Landor, while adept at dialogue, lacked the dramatic capability necessary to convert these to the stage and he destroyed another tragedy Ferranti and Giulio in frustration at his publishers. The Imaginary Conversations therefore provided a different vehicle for Landors art. At Florence, Landor was corresponding with Southey who had planned to write a book of Colloquies and they considered collaborating on a project. Landor had finished fifteen dialogues by 9 March 1822, and sent them to Longmans. Longmans would not publish, so by the influence of his friend Julius Hare, he managed to get agreement with the firm of Taylor & Hessey to publish them. Some disputes with the publishers followed in which both Southey and Wordsworth became involved. Not without some embarrassment to Southey as one of the Conversations was between Southey and Porson on the merits of Wordsworth&#39;s poetry. In 1824, two volumes were published with eighteen conversations in each. The third volume of Imaginary Conversations was published by Henry Colburn in 1828 but Julius Hare was frustrated by Colburns delays and the fourth and fifth volumes were finally published by James Duncan in 1829. Over the succeeding years Landor published occasional Imaginary Conversations as one off pieces and collated a number of them in 1853. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm and all covers are attached. The front outer hinges if volumes II and III are cracked and the boards are holding by the cords only. Volume I has been skillfully rebacked with the original spine and boards. There is some minor wear to the extremities including some rubbing to the edges and the spines. There are a couple of marks to the boards. Internally the books are generally clean and bright apart from occasional mild spots. There is an amorial ownership plate to the front pastedown of each volume. Overall the books are in very good condition..

        Elements of Political Economy. Third Edition, Revised and Corrected

Hardcover, contemporary half black smooth calf and matching pebbled cloth, spine ruled and lettered in gilt, all edges sprinkled red; old signature to title, contemporary pencil annotations to endpapers; some rubbing to leather on extremities. In a very good condition. A nice copy. ~ Third, revised and corrected edition. This is the first appearance of the revised edition, the final version of Mill's classic work and in many respects the best edition. All later editions are reprint of this one. James Mill (1773-1836), British historian, philosopher, and economist. The first edition of ?Elements of Political Economy?, ?Mill's masterpiece?, appeared in 1821. According to his son, John Stuart Mill, it originated in 1819 in instructions given to him by his father during their daily walks. The abstracts of these lessons, prepared by the son, served the father as notes from which to write his book. The work is considered as a summary representation of contemporary theories, in particular those of Malthus and Ricardo. It is said that Mill's principal services to political economy were indirect, among them to have been the father and the teacher of J. S. Mill. Several of the major alterations in Mill's work were founded on criticisms made by his son. (Palgrave. 1894-1901). Kress C.1729. Goldsmith 24799. Einaudi 3894. OCLC 5507730, 1996106.

        Biographical Sketches and Interesting Anecdotes of Persons of Colour

      York, Printed and Sold by W. Alexander & Son &#133;; sold also by Harvey and Darton, W. Phillips, E. Fry, and W. Darton, London; R. Peart, Birmingham; D. F. Gardiner, Dublin, , 1826. Compiled by &#133; Octavo (176 × 103 mm) contemporary maroon half skiver on marbled boards, gilt double-ruled compartments to the spine. Contemporary ownership inscription of John Fletcher to the front free endpaper. Slightly rubbed, some foxing and browning, as usual, but overall very good. First English edition, which omits the poetry included in American editions, a note verso of the final contents leaf reads; "In the present edition, one or two of the narratives have been rather extended, and several pieces omitted, which appeared to possess but little interest, or to be unappropriate [sic.] to the plan of the work." Abigail Mott (1766-1851) was born into a prominent Quaker family in West Chester Country, New York. An early memoir of her remarks on how "She entertained a lively sympathy with the suffering class of her fellow creatures, from whatever cause those sufferings might arise &#133;She felt tenderly for that oppressed portion of the human family, whose rights as men are torn from them, and they doomed to a state of bondage that is to be transmitted from parents to their children &#133;The depressed condition of the people of color in the "Free States" likewise attracted her attention and her commiseration. From a desire to promote their improvement, she wrote and published "Sketches" of the characters of those of their own people who had most distinguished themselves, with the hope of exciting a spirit of emulation by such examples, that might tend to the elevation of their character. " (Memoir of Purchase Monthly Meeting concerning Abigail Mott, New York, James Egbert, 1852.) It is interesting to note that the anonymous memorialist accentuates Mott&#39;s desire to inspire emulation among the slaves themselves, whereas in her own preface she clearly stresses "the dreadful consequences of that arbitrary power invested in the slave-holder over his fellow being &#133; to show how it hardens the heart and petrifies the feelings &#133; [those] being trained up in the midst of Slavery, and inured from their infancy to see the sufferings of the poor slaves, and to hear their cries, become almost insensible to the responsibility of their station, and the enormity of the evils they are committing." On a more practical level, recent research has shown that Abigail and her sister Lydia were highly active in the Underground Railroad in the Albany area; "The Mott sisters were Quakers who regularly aided fugitives passing through the city from the late 1820s onwards and were instrumental in forming the Albany Female Antislavery Society &#133; Lydia tutored the nine-year-old daughter of Frederick Douglass in the late 1850s." (Switala, Underground Railroad in New Jersey and New York, 2006) Blockson (Hippocrene Guide to the Underground Railroad) tells how a Massachusetts sailor, Austin Bearse, assisted the sisters in securing the escape of "a slave they had secreted just out of the city, who was in danger." The biographies here include Phillis Wheatley, Ignatius Sancho, Gustavus Vassa, Toussaint L&#39;Ouverture, and Zilpha Montjoy. Interesting to note the Quaker connection continued, London publication being dealt with by the very Quaker conger of Harvey and Darton, W. Phillips, E. Fry, and W. Dalton. Uncommon, COPAC locates just 4 copies - BL, Oxford and Leeds - OCLC has 12 copies in America, this a very nice copy in unrestored contemporary condition.

However, Private John Cheeseman of the 14th Regiment had hardly had time to receive 200 lashes before a conference of officers decided the ship was not seaworthy and that they should return to the Thames. After much toing and froing the the log begins again on the 25th March 1828 off Dungeness Lighthouse. The outward journey log records general nautical details such as weather and heading together with the births, deaths; and the rather frequent floggings, the soldiers getting much the worse of it, usually receiving 200 lashes compared with the sailors nominal two dozen.The ship reaches Calcutta on the 1st July, and anchors in Sanjar Roads, unloading passengers and cargo and taking on goods, mostly cotton. On the 19th September she weighs anchor for China arriving at Whampong Reach on the 6th November, where she loaded tea and other goods, before leaving for England on the 17th February 1829. The log ends on the 2nd of June 1829.The 'Thomas Coutts' was built by Frances Barnard, Son & Roberts, in the Blackwall yard for Stewart Marjoribanks, a merchant involved with the East India Company. She was launched on the 17th September 1817 under the name of 'Thomas Coutts'; with a tonnage of 1424 9/94, and dimensions of 138 by 43.4 by 17.1 feet. The East India Company chartered her on the 31st December 1817. Her first two voyages were under the command of Captain William Marjoribanks, who was relieved of command on the 31st December by Captain Alexander Chrystie. She made eight voyages between 1817 and 1833 under the auspices of the East India Company. Although no longer chartered by the Company after 1833, she continued to make regular runs to India and China up until 1845. In 1841 she was sold to famous ship-owner Joseph Soames, and in 1845 was broken up.Her most memorable voyage was her 1826/1827 run to China and India. In March 1826, carrying goods and mail, she left England and arrived in Bombay harbour three months later, on June 2, only 82 days from the Channel. From Bombay she went on to China, leaving the Indian port in August and calling at Singapore and Macao. She left China on November 23, reaching St. Helena late in January 1827, finally arriving in the Downs on March 2, 1827. This was the fastest voyage on record, out and home in 10 days less that a year.

        XenophontisMemorabilia Socratis

      XenophonTranslated by Johann Gottlob SchneiderWith additional annotations by Ludwig Dindorf, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Areally goodcopy of Xenophon&#39;s most famous Socratic writings, Memorabilia. Bound in full calf leather with gilt lettering and decoration. The Memorabilia are the lengthiest and most famous of Xenophon&#39;s Socratic writings. The Memorabiliaare essentially an apologia, a defence, of Socrates. It is Xenophon&#39;s own defence of Socrates, offering edifying examples of Socrates&#39; conversations and exploits along with commentary and explanation. This copyincludes both the Greek and Latin texts. Xenophon, ca. 430 - 354 BC,was a soldier, mercenary and a contemporary and admirer of Socrates. He is known for his writings on the history of his own times, preserving the sayings of Socrates, and the life of ancient Greece. Xenophon was born into the ranks of the upper classes, thus granting him access to certain privileges of the aristocracy of ancient Attica. While a young man, Xenophon participated in the expedition led by Cyrus the Younger against his older brother, the emperor Artaxerxes II of Persia, in 401 BC. Johann Gottlob Theaenus Schneider, 17501822, was a German classicist and naturalist. In 1774 he became secretary to the famous Strasbourg scholar Richard Franois Brunck, and in 1811 became professor of ancient languages and eloquence at Breslau. The scientific writings of ancient authors especially attracted him, and he translated the works of many ancient scholars. Ludwig August Dindorf, 1805 1871, was a German classical philologist. He studied classical philology at the University of Leipzig, and before completing his studies had published works by Xenophon. Throughout his life, Dindorf worked on many editions of scholarly and historicalclassical works. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including some mild rubbing, with slightsunning to the spine. Internally the pages are bright with intermittent spots that become prominent on the endpapers. Overall the condition is very good..
