        The Dramatic works of William Shakspeare with notes original and selected by Samuel Weller Singer […] and a life of the poet by Charles Symmons

      Chiswick: Charles Whittingham, College House, 1826. Hardcover. First edition with Singer’s notes. 8vo. 10 volumes. With 60 wood engravings by John Thompson from drawings by Stothard, Corbould, Harvey, etc. The first volume contains a frontispiece portrait of Shakespeare. The title page to each volume displays a vignette illustrating a scene from one of the plays. Bound by Zaehndorf in full calf with ornately gilt spines and inner dentelles. Top edge is gilt. Some spots of rubbing and wear are present to the extremities. The outer joints and inner hinges to volume 1 (and a section of the rear joint to volume 2) are neatly and professionally strengthened. (Hinges to the first few leaves in volume 1 are also carefully reinforced). The head cap and the bottom corner tips of the boards to volume 1 contain minor restoration. Several of the tiny date labels (at the foot of each spine) are lightly chipped. Interior pages are generally clean with only an occasional faint spot of foxing. The rear free blank end paper in volume I contains a carefully sealed tear. This Chiswick Press edition of Shakespeare is the first to possess the notes of the English writer and scholar Samuel Weller Singer [See Jaggard]. According to the DNB “Singer was responsible for a careful collation of the text and many useful notes.” A nice looking set. [Jaggard, p. 517]

      [Harrisburg, Pa.: Cameron & Krause, printers, 1826].. 7pp. Folio. Dbd. Faint old fold lines. Roughly removed from a bound volume, resulting in some paper loss, not affecting text. Minor soiling; docketed on verso of last leaf. About very good. The Pennsylvania House of Representatives working draft, or "slip bill," of Pennsylvania's fugitive slave law, passed in 1826. Such drafts were printed, double spaced, for draft purposes while legislation was under consideration, and were generally only printed in sufficient numbers for the members on the floor. There is only one other copy of another issue noted on OCLC, but this version seems to be unique. This act makes it a felony to carry off or detain a slave with the intention to sell him/her, punishable by hefty fines and servitude. It further states that the owner of a runaway slave, or his acting agent, may apply to "any judge, justice of the peace or alderman" in Pennsylvania for a warrant to retrieve the lost property. The law also renders it a misdemeanor to "aid, abet or attempt the rescue of such a fugitive," punishable by fines and possible imprisonment. In 1780 the state of Pennsylvania passed an act for the gradual emancipation of slaves, and while slavery was not actually abolished entirely there until 1847, there were only a few hundred slaves left in the state in 1826. The law was not aimed internally, but passed under pressure from neighboring Maryland, since many slaves fled across the increasingly significant Mason- Dixon line into the "free" North. Pennsylvania long maintained that fugitive slave issues were covered by the federal act of 1793, but yielded to Maryland's pressure to create a formal system, though laborious, for slave owners to reclaim their property - the only northern state to do so. In fact, enforcement was increasingly lax, and slave holders took matters into their own hands. In 1837 a fugitive slave from Maryland, Margaret Morgan, had lived in York County, Pennsylvania for five years when a man named Edward Prigg, working for her owner, came to arrest her. Though he had a warrant, the county constable refused to help him, and Prigg forcibly removed the fugitive to Maryland. He was subsequently indicted in York County for kidnapping and found guilty. The case, Prigg vs. Pennsylvania, ultimately found its way to the Supreme Court, where the 1826 law was found unconstitutional in 1842. The repeal of this law left only the 1793 federal law, which was hardly enforceable, and a rising tide of southern demand for a law with teeth. This was ultimately realized in the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 - a path which began directly with the present act. The unique legislative draft version of a law which came to have great significance in Constitutional history and the story of slavery in the United States. OCLC 30550129 (ref).

Born in February, 1777, in Derry, Ireland, at the early age of 15 he became an apprentice to a surgeon-apothecary in Antrim for 2 years. After spending further 2 years at Belfast, he moved to London for the surgeon&#39;s examination, which he passed in 1798. Immediately afterwards, he was appointed surgeons&#39;s mate on a naval vessel, on which he sailed to Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. In 1800 he took part in an expedition to Egypt and, in 1803, sailed for India. In 1814, Johnson attended the Duke of Clarence (afterward William IV of the United Kingdom), and when Clarence became king was appointed as his physician extraordinary

        An Account of the State of Agriculture & Grazing in New South WalesÖ

      London,: J. Cross, 1826.. Tall octavo, with a coloured folding frontispiece and four aquatint plates (three in colour), & the rare large folding map by J. Cross, half-title, engraved bookseller's ticket (G.F. Cruchley) tipped in, some offsetting; an excellent untrimmed copy in the original printed boards a little darkened at spine; in an attractive tan calf book-form box by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. A famous rarity and a remarkably attractive copy: this is the special issue of a title that is extremely uncommon in any form, complete with the extra large folding map and the panoramic coloured view of Sydney. The highly decorative map is dedicated to Captain Phillip Parker King, who had just completed his cartographic work on the vessels Mermaid and Bathurst.The first book on Australian agriculture, it was written by a noted early settler, father of the novelist Louisa Atkinson, and first husband of Charlotte Barton, author of the first Australian children's book. Atkinson's account of the agricultural and pastoral frontier, based on several years' personal experience, is at once a practical guide and a descriptive survey of the agricultural districts and large establishments.A remarkably attractive book, it is well illustrated with aquatints of very fine quality. The splendid folding frontispiece, one of the best early printed views of Sydney, is probably based on the painting by Richard Read now in the National Library of Australia. Another of the plates is important as the earliest published ground-plan of an Australian house, offered by Atkinson as appropriate to the requirements of a pioneering agriculturist. Broadbent (The Australian Colonial House) suggests that Atkinson's design was modelled on Oldbury, the house that he had built in the early 1820s. Rebuilt in 1828, it is now the oldest surviving house in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. The other three hand-coloured aquatints show scenes from an "exploring party" of two settlers and three Aborigines, one of the latter in European clothes.Few people of this period were actively promoting farming in Australia. In 1826 Atkinson accompanied Charles Macarthur to Saxony to buy sheep - and he anticipated 'some future and not distant period, when these vast and in many places fertile plains, shall be covered by productive flocks and herds, and enlivened by the presence and industry of civilised men...' (An Account, p. 7).Through his own farming endeavours as well as his writing - in particular this seminal work - Atkinson was 'trying to raise the efficiency of farming in New South Wales; ploughing competitions, stock breeding, cheese making and dingo eradication all claimed his attention... The Agricultural and Horticultural Society regarded it as a judicious and ably written treatise, and awarded him a gold medal' (ADB).This copy was sold by the Mapseller and Publisher G.F. Cruchley, and has his elaborate advertising ticket on the front paste-down. Cruchley was a successor to the cartographer John Cary and, the ticket notes, was associated with Arrowsmith.Ferguson, 1054.

        The Book Of Nature (3 volume set)

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown and Green. VG+/NONE. 1826. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 1st edition/1st printing. Lovely 3 volume 1st printing/1st edition set of an important work of its time by a physician and surgeon who had previously published &#39;A History Of Medicine&#39; in 1795, which helped to effect a much needed reform in the profession of the apothecary, and who also wrote profusely about geology, zoology, matter, the human mind and body, botany, and religion. This 3-volume set of books is half-bound in dark green leather with gilt printing and decoration on the spines, with 4 raised bands on each spine, and a gilt strip separating the leather at the spine and corners from the marbled paper-covered boards portion of the bindings. The pastedowns, end pages and page edges are the same marbled design as the binding boards. Vol. I has 443 pages, Vol. II has 441 pages, and Vol. III has 425 pages. The volumes are straight, clean, very tight, and have no previous owners&#39; writing in them. There is an occasional very small, very faint foxing spot to pages (at beginnings and ends of text blocks), there is some edgewear to the binding boards, and there is an occasional small shelving scuff to the leather and to the marbled paper-covered boards, with some small areas of color loss. The leather and boards are in excellent condition, however, and the hinges are very sound and the text paper supple. Quite a beautiful set, and scarce in this condition. ; Vol. 3; 8-3/4" x 5-1/2" .

        Voyage autour du monde... [A series of Zoologie plates]

      Paris,: Arthus Bertrand, circa, 1826.. Five original parts, folio, containing a total of 32 plates, all of which with fine original handcolouring, a few spots; completely unbound as issued, and in fine condition in the original printed wrappers, fraying to spines and edges. A substantial series of zoologicial natural history plates from the finely-illustrated Duperrey voyage, published in Paris between 1826 and 1830; publication was never in fact completed. Preserved in their fragile original "livraison" loose printed wrappers for the Atlas Zoologie, the plates variously depict fish, crustaceans, birds and mammals, including the 'Kangourou Oualabat' from New South Wales: the original specimens were collected from South America, the Pacific and New Guinea.This was one of the greatest French scientific expeditions. Apart from new discoveries, the voyage of thirty-one months corrected errors in existing maritime charts, gathered three hundred geological samples, twelve hundred insects, two hundred and sixty-four birds and quadrupeds as well as botanical specimens, reptiles and fishes. It reported on Pacific languages, costumes, weapons and artefacts. The superb illustrations resulting from these new discoveries are among the finest of nineteenth century voyage art.This assembly represents a chance to acquire a significant portion of the zoology discoveries from this major French expedition.The plates are as follows:1.Trigle Koumou, 2.

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 MacPhail& & Sir 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.

        Indenture concerning a large debt owed to Hobart Town merchant

      Hobart,: 29 March, 1826.. Manuscript, nine leaves measuring 406 x 330 mm., wove paper, original ribbon ties , wax seals extant; folded to docket size, leaf forming exterior of the docket a little browned and chipped, otherwise very good. Robert Edwards Collection. An early Van Diemen's Land manuscript indenture resulting from a considerable debt accrued to a Hobart Town merchant.The indenture concerns two men, namely William Allardyce of the Clyde District and William Wilson, a merchant residing trading from Hobart Town. The manuscript plainly states that Allardyce has accrued debts of £500 for merchandise received on credit from Wilson; being unable to pay his debt the indenture stipulates the mortgage of Allardyce's property to raise the required capital. The trustee for the funds is David Lord, the son of an emancipated convict who became a major landholder and founding subscriber of the Van Diemen's Land Bank.The document was witnessed by Josiah Spode, later coroner and Chief Convict Superintendent, and each leaf bears his signature. The final leaf retains the extant wax seals of Wilson, Allardyce and Lord.

Quarto text volume; bound in recent blue quarter morocco [with] folio atlas, the latter with 120 engraved botanical plates; some sporadic foxing and browning as almost always with this book, but a good copy in contemporary brown morocco, ornately decorated in blind and gilt, all edges gilt. The very scarce botanical section of the full official account of the Freycinet expedition: the Atlas volume with its 120 engravings, and complete with its text volume in an unmatched later binding.Capitalising on the incredible number of Australian specimens collected during the earlier Baudin voyage, now known chiefly because of the gardens at Malmaison, the present volume confirms that Australian botany still featured as one of the great goals of the Freycinet voyage, with twenty Australian specimens here noticed for the first time.'Gaudichaud was the first botanist of the French expeditions to botanise in the Blue Mountains and Bathurst, which he did on a brief journey, with the assistance of Cunningham and Fraser... Gaudichaud's fine work (as principal contributor) and a splendid folio atlas of 120 plates... are valuable to the botanist for the specific localities of plants collected. Port Jackson, Botany Bay, the Blue Mountains and Shark's Bay in Western Australia were visited...' (Maiden, "Records of the Earlier French Botanists", Journal and Proceedings of the Royal Society of NSW, vol. XLIV, pp. 137-8). The expedition made a special study of the botany of all the countries they visited. The atlas includes thirty-two plates of Hawaiian plants (including the Sandalwood - plate 45), and there are twenty plates of newly described plants from New Holland ('a charming country', thought Gaudichaud, and the only place visited on the voyage that reminded him of 'notre belle France').Ferguson records only two sets of the full official account of the voyage, of which this forms part - the Mitchell and National Library copies, the latter incomplete.Nissen, 989.

        Une lettre manuscrite de Deleuze sur le magnétisme animal adressée au Journal des Débats MANUSCRIT

      Trois pages manuscrites 70 lignes manuscrites circa. Il s'agit d'une lettre très importante dans l'histoire des débats suscités par le magnétisme. Deleuze commence à s'interroger sur l'inexactitude flagrante de deux articles parus le 2 et 7 mai 1826 dans le Journal des Débats et qui le vise personnellement. On y dit qu'il se trompe depuis 40 ans et que le magnétisme constitue un danger pour les bonnes meurs. Ce à quoi Deleuze réponds qu'il est difficile pour un homme de magnétiser une femme ! Il renvoie ensuite à un livre paru l'année précédente - et qui avait fait l'objet d'un compte rendu dans le Journal des Débats - ou il proscrivait de magnétiser une personne du sexe opposé sauf s'il s'agit du père ou du mari ! (curieux miroir inversé de la doctrine freudienne). Il continue ensuite - toujours à rebours de la psychanalyse - à se plaindre de la fausseté de l'article en finit par ces assertions "il n'est pas vrai que le magnétisme est plus facile entre personnes de sexe opposées", "il n'est pas vrai que le magnétisme agisse plus souvent et mieux avec des jeunes personnes qu'avec des personnes agées .", "il n'est pas vrai que le somnambulisme se montre plus souvent chez les femmes que chez les hommes", °°°°° - - - Joseph Philippe François Deleuze est un naturaliste français, né en 1753 à Sisteron et mort le 31 octobre 1835 à Paris. Il étudie à Paris et devient naturaliste-assistant au Muséum national d'histoire naturelle en 1795. Il collabore avec Antoine Laurent de Jussieu (1748-1836). Aide-naturaliste, puis bibliothécaire du Muséum d'histoire naturelle, il est surtout connu pour être un partisan de la théorie du magnétisme animal et suggère que l'Académie des sciences l'étudie Très bon couverture souple Edition originale Signé par l'auteur

      London: John Murray, 1826. First Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall Very Good. Two volumes in one. lxvii, 335; 269 pp, complete with 38 engraved plates (1 colored) and maps (1 folding), 6 wood-engraved vignettes in the text. Rebound in red buckram with leather spine label, date erroneously printed as 1836 at foot. Occasional minor foxing and offsetting, one closed tear to map.In hopes of tracing the course of the Niger River, Denham&#39;s expedition crossed the desert along the long-established Sahara trade route to the kingdom of Bornu (later Nigeria), a route littered with the skeletons of thousands of slaves abandoned there over the centuries. They sighted Lake Chad and reached the capital of Bornu, where they were welcomed by a spectacular array of some five thousand horsemen sent by the Muslim prophet who ruled Bornu in the king&#39;s name. Though delighted to meet them, he refused to let them continue their explorations, lest they meet some misadventure for which he would be blamed. Ultimately, the expedition returned to England having failed to find the Niger, but having opened much of north central Africa to European knowledge. Written in a lively style, and embellished with engravings of Denham&#39;s own sketches, this account became one of the classics of its genre (DNB). Denham was later appointed lieutenant-governor of the colony of Sierra Leone, where he died of the African fever in 1828.

Later green half morocco, spines with gilt flower ornaments in 6 compartments. The 'SPECIAL CROWN ISSUE' of this well-known and beloved flower-book. Only a few copies have been produced of this 'de luxe' edition. It is of utmost rarity and is not mentioned in any of the standard bibliographies. The illustrations are the same as in the corresponding volumes of the ordinary edition, but instead of being grouped in fours, only one is illustrated to a plate. Each one is handcoloured with much greater care than in the ordinary issue. All plates are surrounded by uniform and finely engraved borders, which are surmounted by a crown. The first volume has an inserted leaf with the following text: "To her most gracious Majesty the Queen. In grateful acknowledgement of her Condescension and Patronage, this volume is most respectfully dedicated. By her Majesty's most obliged and devoted servant Benjamin Maund". A fine copy.
