The Property of the Right Honble. the Earl of Scarborough. To whom this Print, by Permission is most respectfully dedicated by the Publishers

      [Doncaster]: W. Sheardown & Sons, [1826]. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by C. Hunt, 'Minerva head' blindstamp. 12 x 16 1/4 inches. 16 9/16 x 22 1/4 inches. A fine print from the 'Winners of the Great St. Leger Series', started by John Frederick Herring and ably continued here: David Dalby's "portraits of horses are very fine" (Charles Lane). David Dalby "was born in 1794 and is noted as an animal painter in a York directory in 1815. Within five years he was busy with commissions from the Yorkshire hunting and racing fraternity. The racehorse owner Richard Watt of Bishop Burton was an important patron. Dalby painted primarily in York but also at Leeds and Doncaster where he may have lived from time to time during his comparatively short life. His portraits of horses are very fine and it is sad that so few were engraved." (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.97) "In 1825 The Doncaster Gazette commissioned [John Frederick] Herring to paint a series of pictures of the winners of the St. Leger starting in 1815... W. Sheardown and Sons of Doncaster published these brilliantly engraved prints (by Thomas Sutherland) in 1825 with the 1826 winner, Tarrare, contributed by David Dalby. Messrs Fuller of London... continued the series until the mid- 1840s." (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.120) Lane British Racing Prints p.97.

Tous les amusemens, tous les jeux de là campagne sont tour à tour passés en revue par cette joyeuse société. Les occupations, ou plutôt les délassemens de chaque jeudi occupent un cahier, divisés en quatre sections. Ce cadre a fourni l'occasion à l'auteur, M. Brès, connu déjà par des productions fort agréables du même genre, de mêler à la description de plusieurs jeux, quelques vers spirituels échappés à sa muse, et d'embellir ses élégans cahiers d'un grand nombre de jolis dessins. En un mot rien n'a été négligé pour l'exécution de cet élégant ouvrage."

        'Result of an ExaminationÖ of the Heads of 148 convicts

      Edinburgh,: October 1826 - November, 1827.. Octavo, a little toning to the pages but generally good; contemporary green half calf, spine banded and gilt, a little bumped. Full year's run of this journal, which includes a fascinating article on the phrenological experiments - the first of their kind - carried out on board the convict ship England in the spring of 1826. The article is entitled: 'Result of an Examination, by Mr James de Ville, of the Heads of 148 convicts on board the convict ship England, when about to sail for New South Wales in the Spring of 1826' (pp. 467-71).In his youth De Ville (1777-1846) worked as the assistant to a sculptor, and this expertise with plaster-of-paris led to him being asked to make phrenological casts, and he soon immersed himself in the newly emerging practice, writing pamphlets and lecturing. His reading of the heads of the convicts on board the England was one of his great successes: the navy surgeon on board, one Dr Thomson, hosted De Ville for his experiment in the spring of 1826, at the suggestion of Mr Wardrop of London.The article notes that 'Mr De Ville furnished [Thomson] with a distinct memorandum of the inferred character of each individual convict, and pointed out the manner in which the dispositions of each would probably appear in his general conduct on the passage. The desperadoes were all specifically noted, and a mode of treatment to prevent mischief suggested. One man in particular was noted as very dangerous, from his energy, ferocity, and talent for plots and profound dissimulation. His name was Robert Hughes.'Thomson kept a log during the voyage which was deposited in the Victualling Office, and the present article details some events from this log, including a plan by Hughes and his co-conspirator Thomas Jones to seize the ship and run it for South America. Needless to say such forethought was very pleasing to Thomson, and the article also includes his single-page letter written from Sydney on 9 October 1826, with his note that the convicts 'were going to rip up the poor doctor like a pig.'.

        Extracts from Godolphin, Sea Laws, Jenkins, Maline, Zouch and Exton

      1826. [Nichols, Benjamin Ropes]. Argument of Plaintiffs' Counsel in the Case of Willard Peele and Others Versus the Merchants' Insurance Company, Before the Supreme Court of the United States, February Term, 1826, Upon the Question of Admiralty Jurisdiction, In Cases of Policies of Insurance. With Extracts from Various Learned Treatises Upon This Subject. Boston: Howe & Norton, Printers, 1826. 35 pp. [Bound with] Godolphin, John [1617-1678], Jenkins, Sir Leoline [1623-1685], Malynes, Gerard [fl. 1586-1641], Zouch, Richard [1590-1661], Exton, John [1600?-1668], Justice, Alexander. Extracts from Godolphin, Sea Laws, Jenkins, Maline, Zouch and Exton, Of All the Parts of Those Treatises Which Relate to the Admiralty Jurisdiction in Cases of Contracts: Also, The Commission of George III. to the Vice Admiralty Court in New Hampshire in 1776. And an Abstract of the Records of the Vice Admiralty Court in Massachusetts Prior to the Revolution. Boston: Howe & Norton, 1826. 132 pp. Octavo (9" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary plain wrappers. Some edgewear and a few minor stains. Toning, light foxing to a few leaves, internally clean. * Sole editions. Peele et Al. v. the Merchants' Insurance Company concerned claims on a merchant ship that was wrecked off the coast of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and abandoned. Though damaged, the cargo was ultimately saved. At issue was the effect of abandonment on the insurance claim of the owners. In the U.S. Circuit Court, Justice Story held that the owners had the right to abandon their ship under the circumstances of the wreck and were entitled to recover their claim. The case was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, but no decision can be found. The second item was probably intended for busy New England lawyers who dealt with maritime contracts. It would have been a handy reference and a useful source for erudite references. The core of this curious volume is an anthology of writings by the leading seventeenth-century English writers on admiralty. An editor isn't listed and the extracts are presented without commentary, but the editor used sources for each work which are mentioned and the extracts are collated against them in side-notes.

        Voyage of H.M.S. Blonde to the Sandwich Islands

      London,: John Murray, 1826.. Quarto, with folding aquatint frontispiece, chart of the voyage, eight other aquatint plates, three engraved portraits, plan of Kilauea volcano and a woodcut; sporadic light foxing and toning mostly, but not exclusively, in the margins; a very good large copy, edges rough-trimmed only, in the original plain boards, rebacked long ago, original cloth spine and remnants of printed paper label laid down. First edition. Kamehameha II of Hawaii and his Queen Kamamalu were on a visit to London in 1824, when they both died of measles, against which they had no immunity. This voyage - 'one of the most gracious acts that one country has ever extended to another' (Buck) - was commissioned by the British government specifically to return their bodies to the Hawaiian Islands, with the cousin of the poet Byron in command. The book contains a history of their visit to London, a rÈsumÈ of the discovery, and visits to Hawaii by British explorers, as well as the main narrative, compiled by Maria Graham from journals kept by the naturalist Bloxam as well as from official papers.The stay in Hawaii - discussed at length by Forbes in the Hawaiian National Bibliography - contains an interesting account of travels to Hilo, and the volcano, Kealakekua, Lahaina and Honolulu. The fine aquatint views by Robert Dampier include a large view of Kilauea crater, two of Honolulu, four of Hilo, and one each of the City of Refuge near Kealakekua, and Lahaina on Maui.Borba de Moraes, p. 139; 'Hawaii One Hundred', 37; Hill, 231; Judd, 76.

        NO. 347. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES...AN ACT TO GIVE EFFECT TO THE PROVISIONS OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES RELATIVE TO FUGITIVES FROM LABOR FOR THE PROTECTION OF FREE PEOPLE OF COLOR AND TO PREVENT KIDNAPPING [caption title]

      [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).

Please feel free to view our photographs. <br><br James Johnson (February, 1777 â&#128;&#148; 1845) was an influential British writer on diseases of tropical climates in the first half of the nineteenth century. 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.

      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" .

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.

        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.

        Voyage autour du monde

      Paris,: chez Pillet aânÈ,, 1826.. 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.

He was an Austrian Orientalist who served in the Levant. One of his early commissions in Constantinople was to seek out a manuscript copy of the Nights, but failed. Later, in Egypt, he apparently succeeded. This was the first manuscript discovered which had the ending in which Shahriyar repents of executing Sheherazade. The manuscript and his translation into French have been lost, but a German version survives and is the basis for this translation into English.
