A very good, tall copy. Engraved folding map, mounted on linen stub as issued, 2 further maps, 27 wood-engraved chapter headings. First edition; a two-volume octavo edition followed in the same year. Buckingham (1786–1855) spent much of his early life as a merchant sailor. Between 1813 and 1814 he travelled in Egypt, meeting Muhammad Ali Pasha, who despatched him to Bombay to develop trade with India. There he accepted a further commission from the Imam of Muscat, but was forced to return to Egypt by the East India Company. From Cairo he travelled overland India through Syria, Iraq and Iran. Travels in Mesopotamia recounts the Aleppo to Baghdad leg of the voyage, undertaken in mid-1816. In 1818 he established the Calcutta Journal, an antigovernment periodical, and was expelled from India five years later, subsequently becoming a vocal supporter of the temperance and other Liberal movements. He "spent far longer in the Arab world than most other occasional visitors" (Hamilton, The Arcadian Library, p. 96) and his travel writings, which he wrote partly to fund legal battles in defence of his character, are "especially notable for the information they provide about social conditions in the many countries he visited" (ODNB). Travels in Mespotamia is considered "full of lively descriptions and sympathetic characters" (Blackmer).

        Mémoire sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes électro-dynamiques déduite de l’expérience, dans lequel se trouvent réunis les Mémoires que M. Ampère a communiqués a l’Académie royale des Sciences, dans les séances des 4 et 26 décembre 1820, 10 juin 1822, 22 décembre 1823, 12 septembre et 21 novembre 1825. Extract from the Mémoires de l’Académie Royale des Sciences de l’Institut de France, Tome VI, Année 1823.

      Firmin Didot, [Paris 1827 - First edition, journal issue, of the ?Principia of electrodynamics? (DSB). ?Having established a noumenal foundation for electrodynamic phenomena, Ampere?s next steps were to discover the relationships between the phenomena and to devise a theory from which these relationships could be mathematically deduced. This double task was undertaken in the years 1821-1825, and his success was reported in his greatest work . In this work, the Principia of electrodynamics, Ampere first described the laws of action of electric currents? (DSB). ?The experimental investigation by which Ampère established the laws of the mechanical action between electric currents is one of the most brilliant achievements in science. The whole, theory and experiment, seems as if it had leaped, full grown and full armed, from the brain of the 'Newton of electricity.' It is perfect in form, and unassailable in accuracy, and it is summed up in a formula from which all the phenomena may be deduced, and which must always remain the cardinal formula of electro-dynamics? (James Clerk Maxwell, Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism, Vol. II, p. 162).Provenance: ?Th. Von der Kühle (?), Göttingen, 1862? (inscription on front free endpaper); Universitätsbibliothek Basel (ink stamp on front free endpaper).?By that time, early 1823, Ampère?s electrodynamics had reached maturity. With the perfected Ampère law, the Ampèrean currents, and proper analytical tools, one could calculate every known magnetic or electromagnetic effect. However, a systematic account of the theory was still wanting. This Ampère gave in 1826 with his masterful ?Mémoire sur la théorie des phénomènes électro-dynamiques, uniquement déduite de l?expérience.??Imitating the rhetorics of Newton?s Principia or Fourier?s Théorie Analytique de la Chaleur, Ampere presented his results as the plain expression of experimental truths: ?I have solely consulted experiment to establish the laws of these phenomena, and I have deduced the only formula that can represent the forces to which they are due.? Later commentators have had no difficulty detecting a few unwarranted hypotheses in Ampere's theory, for example the central character of elementary forces, the absence of elementary torque, and the Ampèrean currents. There is no reason, however, to doubt Ampere's sincerity. As was mentioned, the concept of physical current elements, on which the character of the action between current elements depended, seemed to be materialized in his apparatus. The currents in magnets were not a hypothesis, as far as they were the only consistent way to unify magnetism and electromagnetism: 'The proofs on which I base [my theory] mostly result from the fact that they reduce to a single principle three sorts of actions which all phenomena prove to depend on a common cause, and which cannot be reduced in a different manner.?Most important, Ampère?s formula for the force between two current elements did not depend on any assumption regarding the nature of the electric current and connected mechanisms: ?Whatever be the physical cause to which we may wish to relate the phenomena produced by this action, the formula obtained will always remain the expression of facts.? As we shall see, this turned out to be largely true, since Ampère?s formula (at least its consequences for closed currents) remained an essential basis for the construction of all later theories of electrodynamics. Ampère again compared himself to Fourier, whose equations for heat propagation had survived Fresnel's wave theory of light and heat. Extending the parallel, Ampère did not exclude the search for physical causes. He himself speculated on various mechanisms for the production of electrodynamic forces, as will be seen in a moment. But he required a clean separation between laws and causes.For the determination of the force between two current elements, Ampère offereda polished version of the null method, which was ?more direct, simpler, and susceptible of great prec

        A Fatal Duel Set Up by N.C. Congressman & Later Republic of Texas’s Secretary of State

      1827 - Autograph Letter Signed. Daring Former North Carolina Congressmen Dr. Robert B. Vance to challenge him to a duel, September 12, 1827. 2 pp. Browned paper, stain on verso, some losses on the edges and minor tears, but unique. "the malignant shafts of your disappointed ambition fell perfectly harmless at my feet. I am incapable of any revenge towards you & let me assure you that my chivalry would not permit me to avenge any rongs which you could offer. But if you are serious make good your bost-throw the gantlett upon nutrill ground."Jacksonian Congressman Samuel P. Carson dares his recent opponent Dr. Robert B. Vance to challenge him to a duel. Carson had won Vance's seat in 1825. In 1827, Vance tried to regain his old seat, in part by accusing Carson's father of turning Tory during the Revolutionary War. Carson's lopsided victory (by more than a two-to-one margin) apparently wasn't enough. On November 5, 1827, the men met near Saluda Gap, perhaps just over the border into South Carolina, where dueling was legal until 1880. Vance withheld his shot. Carson did not. He seriously wounded Vance, who died the next day. Complete TranscriptDoctor Robert B VanceMy friend Capt. Burgin is instructed to know of you distinctly before he hands you this whether I was the 'chivalrous son' alluded to in your epistle to my father dated the 6th instant. If so this is my answer had you recollected my language to you at Morganton which was not equivocal & which gave you distinctly to understand what you are to expect at my hands you would have spared yourself the trouble of writing or alluding to me in any way. However sir the malignant shafts of your disappointed ambition fell perfectly harmless at my feet. I am incapable of any revenge towards you & let me assure you that my chivalry would not permit me to avenge any rongs which you could offer To say nothing of your want of those principles which would induce a man of chivalry to notice you. You are exempt from responsibility by the misfortune (a calamity I would pity in any man) of the loss of almost the entire use one limb. I will do no act in violation of the laws of my state but as you have bosted that you had flung the gantlet before me which in point of fact is not true For in the language of chivalry to fling the gantlett is to challenge to throw down the Iron glove (an experiment your chivalry may not permit you to hazard) But if you are serious make good your bost-throw the gantlett upon nutrill ground then if not excepted bost your victory. You should not have bosted before for true chivalry never bosts much less bosts of victory without the risque & danger of wining it You have been faithless to agreements sacred to honour I will not therefore place my self in your power by violating the laws of my state Not to be misunderstood you have received the votes of 2419 citizens of this district as a fit representative in congress this gives you a claim which individually you are not entitled to On my way to Congress I will pass through Ashvill to meet sum friends in East Tennessee your course is open I will spend a week at Jonesborough on my roughtI am &c Sam P CarsonPlesent GardenSeptmr 12th 1827Samuel Price Carson (1798-1838) from North Carolina served several terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, becoming good friends with Davy Crockett. Ill health prompted him to settle in Mississippi, after which he moved to Texas. He was elected a delegate for the Convention of 1836 and signed the Texas Declaration of Independence. He lost by six votes to David G. Burnet for the position of president ad interim. Selected as secretary of state and sent to Washington, D.C. to negotiate Texas' joining the United States, he was replaced after a few months. Carson retired to Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he died two years later.Robert B. Vance (1793-1827) was born near Ashville, North Carolina.

        Large Antique Bird Print-LITTLE OWL-STRIX ACADICA-Audubon-1827

      - From the extremely scarse 'Havell' edition!: 'Little Owl', Strix Acadica, male and female. The plate shows the owl having caught a common mouse. Hand-colored aquatint, etching and line engraving on a vellin type paper. Description: This print originates from John James Audubon's renowned The Birds of America (London, 1827-1838). This is the most important and expensive work on North American ornithology ever produced. Audubon's Birds consist of 435 artistically hand-colored engravings showing birds mostly in their actual sizes. The entire masterpiece took twelve years to complete. Sold by subscription only, the prints were sold in groups or parts of five which were later bound in large leather volumes. The first ten plates were engraved by the firm of William Lizar's of Edinburgh; when Lizar's colorists went on strike, Audubon chose Robert Havell Jr., a skillful engraver and talented artist, to complete the publication. The Havell edition, of which it is estimated that 175 complete sets were produced, is the first edition of this work.Artists and Engravers: John James Audubon (1785-1851) was a French-American ornithologist, naturalist, hunter, and painter. He painted, catalogued, and described the birds of North America in a form far superior to what had gone before. In his outsize personality and achievements, he seemed to represent the new American nation of the United States. Robert Havell, Jr. (1793-1878) was the principal engraver of Audubon's Birds of America. Condition: Fine. Some minimal age related toning and some minimal staining. Since this is one of the smaller prints from this series, the original larger size paper was made smaller to allow for better framing. Margins well outside of platemark. Very faint yellowing in the top margin. Storage location: TPC-P4-04 The overall size is ca. 19.7 x 25.6 inch. The image size is ca. 10.4 x 18.3 inch. The overall size is ca. 50 x 65 cm. The image size is ca. 26.5 x 46.5 cm. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter from Thomas Telford, engineer

      1 page dated 20th Sept 1827 to 'Roger Hopkins' [1775-1847] a fellow engineer of Teignmouth in Devon. 'In reply to your letter of the 18th I am very glad that the bridge answers so well and as you propose presenting me with one copy of the plates, I will pay for another, therefore put my name down for two copies. I do not know what ground you can claim for a premium from the Society of Arts - I am a member but have not attended of late years. We do not give premiums but you may present a copy to the Institution, it will appear amongst the contributions, you will receive thanks, and publicity will thus be given to your design, I remain yours sincerely Thomas Telford. PS The Irish Railway belongs to a private company, and if carried on will be under the inspection and management of their own engineer... Hopkins had designed a bridge across the Teign estuary connecting Teignmouth and Shaldon, at the time the longest wooden bridge in England. It was opened on the 8th June 1827 and so Telford must, I think be referring to this in his letter. The Institution he refers to is the recently formed Institution of Civil Engineers [1818]. His status and role as President was a great boost to the Institution in its early years. Short tear to address panel where originally opened but the item in very good condition. Such letters from one of the great late 18th/early 19th century engineers are very uncommon.

        BATON ROUGE GAZETTE EXTRA

      Baton Rouge, 1827. Broadside, 17 x 12 inches. Minor edge wear, light foxing, one small hole in the fourth column costing a few letters. Very good. A rare early 19th-century newspaper extra providing unique insight into life in the Deep South thirty-four years before the start of the Civil War, containing a number of advertisements for the public auction of slaves, as well as several calls for runaways. One prominent advertisement lists the names of twenty-four slaves which will be offered for sale by the Honorable Ch. Tessier. Names include Onesime, Azor, Cojo, Thalie (described as a "negro girl, aged 11 years, a creole"), and Josephine ("negress aged 30 years good domestic, Angel, her daughter aged 9 years, Basile, her son aged 7 years, Julienne, her daughter aged 3 years"). Includes conditions for payment listed at bottom. This issue of the GAZETTE reports on a number of runaway slaves, detailing the escaped slave's name, physical appearance, and owner. Public notice is also given in reference to George Killian, Senator of St. Helena Parish, who was not going to proceed to pass "an act of emancipation in favor of his negro woman slave named Philis, aged 50 years." A column headed "New Orleans Price Current" details the going price of commodities ranging from "Bale Rope" to "Wine" and includes large ads promoting the "Louisiana Catholic Church Lottery" and "Public School Lottery." An interesting footnote in the history of the BATON ROUGE GAZETTE: in 1843, the GAZETTE's editor, John Hueston, was killed in a shotgun duel with a candidate for Congress, Alcee Labranche, who believed Hueston had insulted him. An uncommon newspaper extra with important information regarding the commerce of slavery in early 19th-century Louisiana.

        The Battle of Navarino. Battle of Navarin.

      Philhellenic: London " Engraved by Robert William Smart, and Henry Pyall, after drawings made by Sir John Theophilus Lee under the immediate inspection of Capt. Lord Vis. Inglesre".. Printed by: I Fisher. c1828. Aquatint of the Battle of Navarino by John Theophilus Lee, The !st edition with dedication; To His Royal Highness William Henry Duke of Clarence. ... With text below describing the battle in English and French. 'This Celebrated Action was fought on the 20th. October 1827, in the Bay of Navarin on the western Coast of the Morea, by the Combined Squadrons of Great Britain, France and Russia; under the Command of the British Vice Admiral Sir Edward Codrington, assisted by the French Rear Admiral Chevalier de Rigny, and the Russian Rear Admiral the Count Heiden, against the united Turkish, Egyptian, and Tunisean Fleets, comprising 65 Vessels of War, viz. 3 of the Line, 4 Double Banked Frigates, 15 Frigates, 26 from 20 to 24 Guns, 12 smaller Vessels, 5 Fire Ships. The Combined Allied Squadrons consisted of 10 Sail of the Line, 10 Frigates, 7 Sloops, and Brigs. The Battle terminated at the end of 4 Hours, in the complete destruction of the Enemies Forces. The British Loss on this Memorable day was 75 Killed, 197 Wounded. The French 43 Killed. 144 Wounded. The Russians 59 Killed, 139 Wounded. The Turkish admiral's Ship which was one of the Vessels opposed to the Asia, bearing the Flag of the British Admiral, lost upwards of 650 Men Killed and Wounded.'. marked "Proof copy". The view,the aftermath of a naval action; the British ships Asia, Genoa and Albion in the middle ground, to the right several Turkish vessels, including the Admiral's ship Sirene, dismasted and in flames; survivors clinging to wreckage and to a rescue cutter, in the foreground. List of the Combined fleet's ships and fire power below. Evenly toned; some spotting mainly to blank margins, and light spotting to sky; damp stain to edge of lower right margin and lower margin just entering text; upper left corner lacking and short tear, repaired, to left blank margin [ far from image]. The Battle of Navarino was fought off the west coast of the Peloponnesus on October 20th 1827 and effectively ended Turkish resistance to Greek independence with the destruction of the Turkish-Egyptian fleet by the British- Russian- French fleet under Vice Admiral Sir Edward Codrington, hero of Trafalgar. The news of Navarino made Codrington a hero twice over in the eyes of the general British public. But in Whitehall, senior naval and diplomatic echelons were appalled by the outcome of his campaign. It was considered that Codrington had grossly exceeded his instructions by provoking a showdown with the Ottoman fleet Initially, official disapproval of Codrington had to be restrained because of the admiral's huge popularity with the public. The Admiralty's revenge took petty form, such as its refusal, despite repeated requests by Codrington, to pay his crews their traditional prize-money from the sale of captured Ottoman treasure and goods. Meanwhile, Wellington was biding his time until he felt it was politically safe to remove Codrington from the Mediterranean theatre. Finally, in June 1828, the Admiralty announced that Codrington was being relieved of his command (although he remained in acting-command until his replacement arrived in August). Although the King felt obliged by public opinion to grant Codrington the high honour of the Grand Cross of the Bath, the Admiralty's failure to give him another operational command in his remaining decade of service or to promote him to full Admiral until shortly before his retirement from the Navy in 1837, were eloquent testimony to his fall from favour. John Theophilus Lee 1787-1843. Lee joined the Royal Navy in 1796 at the age of 9. He saw action at the Battle of Cape St Vincent in 1797 and then the Battle of the Nile the following year, as a midshipman aboard HMS Swiftsure. He passed for Lieutenant in 1806 and married in 1807. Lee then resigned from the Navy in 1809 and became a civilian attached to the Admiralty as head of the personnel department. Subsequently knighted, Lee retired to Bedhampton, where he wrote a book: Memoirs of the life and services of Sir J Theophilus Lee, of The Elms, Hampshire. He died in Torquay in 1843. Lee's professional painting career started at the Portsmouth Naval Academy from 1800-1803, where several of his drawings were used for engravings appearing in the Naval Chronicle. These included views of Alexandria, the Naval Academy, and the Greenwich Asylum. The Naval Chronicle also printed an engraving after JT Lee of a scene of the aftermath of the Battle of Trafalgar. William IV (William Henry; 21 August 1765 - 20 June 1837) was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death. William, the third son of George III and younger brother and successor to George IV, was the last king and penultimate monarch of Britain's House of Hanover. He served in the Royal Navy in his youth and was, both during his reign and afterwards, nicknamed the "Sailor King". He served in North America and the Caribbean, but saw little actual fighting. Since his two older brothers died without leaving legitimate issue, he inherited the throne when he was 64 years old. In 1827 George Canning, the Prime Minister, appointed William, Duke of Clarence, and Heir Presumptive, to the office of Lord High Admiral, which had been in commission (that is, exercised by a board rather than by a single individual) since 1709. While in office, the Duke had repeated conflicts with his Council, which was composed of Admiralty officers. Things finally came to a head in 1828 when the Lord High Admiral put to sea with a squadron of ships, leaving no word of where they were going, and remaining away for ten days. The King, through the Prime Minister, by now Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, requested his resignation; the Duke of Clarence complied. Despite the difficulties the Duke experienced, he did considerable good as Lord High Admiral. He abolished the cat o' nine tails for most offences other than mutiny, attempted to improve the standard of naval gunnery and required regular reports of the condition and preparedness of each ship. He commissioned the first steam warship and advocated more. British Museum :1873,0510.175. Philhellenic Battle of Navarino
