        Manuscript - Slave Registrar of Prospect Estate - Tally & Decription of Slaves

      Trinidad, 1827. London, 2 January 1827. Signed manuscript document tallying and describing the slaves of Prospect Estate in Trinidad, being a register of slaves working this sugar plantation from 1813 to 1822, listing 72 individuals by the English names assigned to them, their approximate age, their occupations, health, distinguishing tribal marks, and country of origin. Folio. 8 pages, on three string-tied double-leafs, laid watermark paper of Chartham Mills papermaker W. Weatherley made in 1824 and featuring a large fleur-de-lys emblem. Leafs measure approximately 48 x 33,5 cm. Docketed to verso. Each leaf signed in the original by Thomas Amyot, the Registrar of Colonial Slaves in Great Britain. Minor creasing, otherwise very good, original condition, a rare primary source document which survived the highly conflicted abolition period. In 1807 when the Abolition of Slave Trade Act came into force, the trade of slaves from Africa to the British colonies became illegal. In 1819 the Office for the Registry of Colonial Slaves was established in London in order to combat ongoing illicit transportation. British Colonial administrators began keeping registers of black slaves who had been so-called "lawfully enslaved." Copies of the slave registers, such as, and including the present document, were submitted to the office in order to prove compliance. Registration generally occurred once every three years, and continued through to 1834 when slavery was officially abolished. "... For the Plantation called Prospect in the Quarter called Quesa, a Sugar Plantation... Trinidad..." Spanning eleven years, this document provides an irrefutable record of the slaves serving on a Trinidad plantation which from at least 1813 was owned by Messrs Inglis Ellis & Co. of London and operating under the management of a William Stuart. By 1822 the estate belonged to Grenada-born slave-owner and member of the Council of Grenada Archibald Armstrong, his son George employed as estate manager according to this document. [According to "Slaves in the colonies" in the House of Commons Parliamentary Papers, in 1826 George Armstrong registered 160 "sugar slaves" and 3 "personal slaves". In 1836 George Armstrong was awarded compensation of £8685 3s 5d for 62 slaves, for the Prospect estate in Trinidad alone. George Armstrong had registered 180 enslaved persons in 1834.] This document is in itself a shocking illustration of the expansive reaches which slavers exploited for free labour to further enterprise and wealth, displacing whole African families to the West Indies. A rather unique detail found on this slave register, and surely informative for ancestral research, the country of origin is noted for each slave, although the ethnonyms ascribed to men, women and children were extirpated from their regular lives in Africa, refer more to regional ethnicity than a specific village. Most were probably bought at a central slave market. Several surnames are listed. Origins of the slaves include the Congo, the Mandingo people of West Africa, Ibo (Igbo of Nigeria), Ada in Ghana, Kimba in Nigeria, Moco (Nigeria/Cameroon people), Rada (believed by scholars to be the port of Arará in Dahomey, now Benin), Chamba in Cameroon, Quaqua (Coast if Ghana), and Temini. An African man was also taken from Caramante in Colombia. All categorized as Creoles, slaves on this plantation also came from Guadaloupe Island in the Lesser Antilles, from the Bahamas, Grenada, and Trinidad. These individuals are also grouped by family connection. A scarce primary source record of a sugar plantation estate in Trinidad, seventy-two slaves are named in this slave register, the oldest being an Igbo male of sixty years of age who was superannuated (retired). Most would have been in servitude for the entire eleven years, or longer. Births on the estate are recorded, and acquisitions in 1822, however, no deaths are recorded over this lengthy time frame. Occasionally, a remark "Country marks on forehead, cheeks, or belly" further identifies the enslaved individual. Each person's height was measured triennially for the returns, health concerns also noted, including ulcerations, and one injured knee. The so-called occupations listed are windmill boatswain, watchman, servant, cooper, grass gang, mule boy, the majority however simply called labourers. Archibald Armstrong junior, Esq. (1790-1868) was born in Grenada and served as a member of the Council of Grenada, taking a twelve months leave in 1835. He was assignee with John Hoyes for his brother George Armstrong who was awarded compensation for the Prospect Estate in Trinidad. Under the 1833 Abolition Act, as executor of Richard or Archibald Armstrong, he was granted part of the compensation for the Garden estate in Trinidad. By 1841 had settled with his wife Anne [née Munro Gibbs] who was also born in Grenada, and their three children, in St Peters Port, Guernsey. He also inherited Woodford Estate in Grenada from his father Archibald Armstrong Senior of London, on condition that he pay £3400 to each of his four sisters and £30 per year to his brother Joseph. Archibald junior was in London for the proving of his father's will on 15 November 1823, being one of three executors. He was the awardee of the compensation for the enslaved people on the Woodford estate. The previous owner mentioned is presumably plantation owner William Stuart (1771-1845) who was born in Inverugie, Moray, Scotland, who died at Morne Delice, Grenada. In 1829 he mortgaged three Grenada estates (Mount Hardman, Morne Delice and Grande Ance) and already held two other estates also in Grenada. In all, he enslaved 470 people upon them, and also on Mount Moritz in St George, and Diamond in St Mark. In 1834 his debt stood at £24,000. He claimed slave-compensation as owner-in-fee for three estates in Grenada, but the award was paid to the partners in J & A Smith of Glasgow, his mortgagees. [Further research is warranted to ascertain if he is a relation to William Stuart, Lieutenant Governor of Dominica from 1771-1772, and again briefly in 1778, who owned the Rosalie plantation. Stuart led the campaign against the French in the Invasion of Dominica in 1788.] Thomas Amyot (1775-1850) was an English antiquarian, a solicitor, private secretary to Secretary of State William Windham, Registrar of Colonial Slaves in the government offices of Great Britain, Secretary and Registrar of Records in Upper Canada, author and a founder of the Camden Society. Almost all the men and women awarded compensation under the 1833 Abolition Act are listed in what is called a Parliamentary Return, an official reply by a government body to a request from an MP. The return is often referred to as the Slavery Abolition Act: An account of all sums of money awarded by the Commissioners of Slave Compensation while its full title is Accounts of slave compensation claims; for the colonies of Jamaica. Antigua. Honduras. St. Christopher's. Grenada. Dominica. Nevis. Virgin Islands. St. Lucia. British Guiana. Montserrat. Bermuda. Bahamas. Tobago. St. Vincent's. Trinidad. Barbadoes. Mauritius. Cape of Good Hope. It can be found in House of Commons Parliamentary Papers 1837-1838 (215) vol. 48 and is 365 pages long. In 1832, before the abolition of slavery, there were 653 sugar estates in cultivation and over 500 coffee plantations in the British West Indies. The British Slavery Abolition Act provided grant totalling £20 million to compensate the slave-owners for the loss of their "human property"! . Very Good.

        Noções historicas, economicas, e administrativas sobre a producção, e manufactura das sedas em Portugal, e particularmente sobre a Real Fabrica do suburbio do Rato, e suas annexas.

      Lisbon, Impressão Regia, 1827. - 8°, nineteenth-century crimson quarter calf over marbled boards (corners a bit worn), spine with black leather lettering piece), gilt letter, orange endleaves, text-block edges sprinkled. Clean and crisp. Fine condition. vii, 405 pp., (1 l.). *** FIRST EDITION of a useful, well documented work. Accursio das Neves (1766-1834), a noted economist, held various government posts; his writing was primarily concerned with the political implications of commerce. Elected a member of the Real Academia das Sciencias de Lisboa in 1810, he was a defender of conservativism, being one of the principle supporters of D. Miguel in the Côrtes of 1828. As a conservative, he had been opposed to the liberal ideology behind the revolution of 1820, and the 1822 constitution. On May 14, 1821 he lost his government offices, only to be reinstated in June 1823. Nevertheless, Neves was elected deputy to the Côrtes of 1822. The years 1821-1828 saw the maturing of his political-economic development. Despite the conservative approach to politics, Neves favored industrialization and free trade (while defending a moderate protectionism). As a result of his support for Miguelismo Neves became an obscure figure with the triumph of the liberals at the end of his life. Today he is regarded as one of the most brilliant Portuguese thinkers and most lucid prose writers of his age, a precursor of modern economic theory in Portugal.*** Innocêncio IV, 182 (without mention of the final leaf, a table of contents).

First edition of the Biblia Sacra Polyglotta, with advertisements on rear board for further volumes soon to be printed in other languages; text block with wide margins pages uncut, boards measure 29 cm. Printed in Hebrew, English, Greek, and Latin. Opposite pages bear duplicate numbering, and each page includes four numbered texts in two columns. Concordance to the following: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy; Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel (Vulgate 1 Kings) , 2 Samuel (Vulgate 2 Kings) , 1 Kings (Vulgate 3 Kings) , 2 Kings (Vulgate 4 Kings) , 1 Chronicles (Vulgate 1 Paralipomenon) , 2 Chronicles (Vulgate 2 Paralipomenon) , Ezra (Vulgate 1 Esdras) , Nehemiah (Vulgate 2 Esdras) , Esther, Job, Psalms. Ending with Psalms [CXIX], remaining fourth volume absent. Three volume set only (missing Hagiography and New Testament; also without prolegomena from Samuel Lee) . The most inclusive of the great Polyglots since the London, or Walton's, Polyglot of 1657, it was printed by Samuel Bagster of Paternoster Row: The first issue [our set] of the â??Biblia Sacra Polyglotta Bagsterianaâ?? appeared between 1817 and 1828, four volumes in foolscap octavo and quarto form, containing, besides the prolegomena of Dr. Samuel Lee, the Hebrew Old Testament with points, the Samaritan Pentateuch, the Septuagint Greek version of the Old Testament, the Latin Vulgate, the authorised English version, the Greek Textus Receptus of the New Testament, and the Peshito or ancient Syriac version. However, due to a fire at the printers in March 1822, very few of these sets were actually distributed; In particular, Lowndes states only twenty-three copies of the New Testament portion [the one volume missing in our set] were preserved. A folio edition of the polyglot was published in 1828, repeated in 1831, and subsequently, presenting eight languages at the opening of the volume, and including all the ancient and modern versions above mentioned. Copies of the different texts and translations were brought out separately, and in various combinations. The two volume folio edition (1828; printed many times thereafter) , encompassing the complete old and new testament in eight languages, is more commonly found. The third fascicle in the set has a pasted in advertisement on verso of board, announcing that the polylglott bible will soon be issued in a two part series. Subjects: Polyglot Bible â?? 1827-1828. Biblia sacra polyglotta Bagsteriana. Not a single set of the first issue listed on OCLC. A single listing exists for a single volume, which survives at a library in Scottland. Original printed Boards worn and rubbed at edges, outer edges of leaves lightly bumped, spine rebacked, otherwise fresh and clean. Very good condition. (SPEC-39-20)

        Saggio di zoologia fossile ovvero osservazioni sopra li petrefatti delle provincie austro - venete con la descrizione dei monti entro ai quali si trovano. Con tavole litografiche.

      Tipografia del Seminario, Padova, 1827. 348 p. [1] VIII c. di tav. folio (33 cm) bross. Tommaso Antonio Catullo (1782 - 1870) bellunese prima professore di storia naturale e chimica al liceo di Belluno poi dal 1829 docente di mineralogia geologia e zoologia all'università di Padova. Come Direttore del Gabinetto di Storia Naturale assieme al suo assistente dott. Giandomenico Nardo si apprestò con grande impegno ad assolvere al compito affidatogli dalle Autorità Accademiche di riordinare le Collezioni zoologiche già catalogate in modo discontinuo e non scientificamente aggiornato dal Renier. Fu proprio Catullo ad arricchire in modo consistente le raccolte del Museo geologico con le vaste collezioni personali e l'acquisto di importanti collezioni private. Catullo è tra i primi se non il primo ad applicare alle rocce del Veneto - e del Mesozoico in Italia - il metodo paleontologico. Egli mette a confronto le sue conclusioni sia con le successioni proposte dalla scuola werneriana e dai francesi sia con quelle elaborate con metodo esclusivamente litologico dai geologi veneti tra i quali ad esempio Maraschini che nel 1824 aveva pubblicato una "cronologia stratigrafica" dei terreni del Vicentino. Nella presente opera lo scritto oggi più famoso della produzione del Catullo e quello che anche allora gli diede la notorietà egli adotta il metodo paleontologico per stabilire l'età relativa dei terreni mesozoici. Decine di figure e una dettagliata carta tutte in litografia. Affascinante frontespizio con piccola cartina finemente incisa (8.5x5.5 cm) delle zone venete - trentine interessate dalla ricerca.

        Préludes poétiques, par M. de Loy, Membre de l'Académie Provinciale ; précédés d'une introduction par M. Charles Durand, Secrétaire Perpétuel. [ Edition originale ]

      De l'Imprimerie de C. Coque, 1827. 1 vol. in - 8 reliure de l'époque demi - maroquin vert, dos lisse orné en long, De l'Imprimerie de C. Coque, Lyon, 1827, 2 ff., xxxv - 219 pp. Rare exemplaire de l'édition originale. Etat très satisfaisant (rel. frottée lég. en dos et plus fort. en coiffes, bon état par ailleurs). Sainte - Beuve consacra un article commun à Loyson, Polonius et Aimé de Loy (RDDM, II, 1840). Né en 1798, mort en 1834, "sa vie, la plus errante et la plus diverse qu'on puisse imaginer, n'apparaît que par lambeaux déchirés dans ses vers"... "Sorti d'un village des Vosges aux frontières de la Franche - Comté, il se réclama toujours de cette dernière province, par amour sans doute des poëtes qui en sont l'honneur, par souvenir surtout de Nodier et des muses voyageuses". L'épisode le plus mémorable de la vie de ce vrai troubadour "fut sans contredit son voyage au Brésil ; las du ménage et du petit magasin où il avait essayé de se confiner, le voilà tout d'un coup dans la baie de Rio - Janeiro. C'était en 1822 ; don Pedro, empereur Constitutionnel, accueillit De Loy, le fit rédacteur officiel de ses projets libéraux. Outre le journal qu'il rédigeait [ l'Estrella Brasileira ], De Loy chantait l'Impératrice, ; il devint commandeur de l'ordre du Christ, il était gentilhomme de la chambre". Jamais fixé malgré ses serments, il revint en France en 1824. Ballon d'essai d'une Académie Provinciale protestant contre la centralisation parisienne, ses "Préludes Poétiques" attirèrent peu l'attention. Mais dans ces 18 Préludes et d'abondantes notes, on découvre tout le personnage. En voici quelques titres : A M. de Chateaubriand ; Les Açores ; Les Vergers de Choully, à M. Claparède ; A Mlle Delphine Gay ; A M. de Lamartine ; La Liberté, à dom Pedro ; Le Brésil ; Les Franc - Comtois, etc... Français

        L'Ottimo Commento della Divina Commedia. Testo inedito d'un contemporaneo di Dante citato dagli Accademici della Crusca

      Presso Niccolò Capurro, 1827 - 1829. 3 voll. in - 8° (220x132mm), pp. XIV, (2), 668; (4), 622;(4), 770, (4); legatura coeva m. pelle marrone con titolo in oro e filetti in oro e a secco ai dorsi. Piatti marmorizzati. Al primo vol., ritratto di Dante all'antiporta inciso su rame da Raffaello Morghen da invenzione di Stefano Tofanelli. Al primo vol., una tav. f.t. incisa al tratto dinanzi alla p. 1 con riproduzione del quadro attribuito all'Orcagna con Dante e, sullo sfondo, Firenze ed i regni oltremondani in cui si svolge il suo viaggio (in relatà il celebre dipinto, in Santa Maria del Fiore, è oggi ascritto a Domenico di Michelino, su disegno di Alessio Baldovinetti). Fra le pp. 564 - 565 del primo vol., veduta incisa raffigurante la Torre della Fame. Ottimo esemplare (fioriture consuete). Prima edizione dell'importantissimo commento dell'"Ottimo" al poema dantesco; in calce al testo di Dante figura l'estesissimo commento dell'anonimo trecentesco (in cui un tempo si vollero identificare, erroneamente, talora Jacopo della Lana e talora il notaio fiorentino Andrea Lancia). L'edizione, curata da Alessandro Torri, è fondata principalmente sui due codici della Laurenziana che contengono il commento. l terzo volume, oltre al Paradiso, contiene alcune osservazioni sull'opera apparse in riviste locali e una "Risposta di Alessandro Torri alle osservazioni del sig. G. B. Piccoli all'Ottimo commento di Dante" edita a Pisa nel 1830 per le stampe del Nistri. "Con questo appellativo (assegnatogli primamente, oltre che per l'intrinseca importanza dell'opera, pel suo schietto volgar toscano, anzi fiorentino - dunque per la sua "citabilità" - dagli Accademici della Crusca fin dall'ediz. 1612 del loro Vocabolario; indi codificato nel 1827 dal primo, anzi unico editore, il Torri, e poi sempre mantenuto dagli studiosi nonostante sia stata avanzata da tempo una precisa candidatura in sede di attribuzione), si suole comunemente designare uno dei più importanti commenti trecenteschi alla Commedia, tramandato, in tre distinte redazioni, da almeno 34 manoscritti.. i suoi pregi consistono, innanzi tutto, nell'indubbia mentalità critica che ha guidato la tecnica summatica della chiosa, quasi sempre vigile a far convergere e a discutere le varie interpretazioni; nell'intenzionale usufruimento, sempre più massicciamente condotto, delle varie opere di Dante sì che potrebbe dirsi che l'Ottimo ha per primo attuato il canone, poi epigraficamente espresso da Giovan Battista Giuliani, di " spiegar Dante con Dante.. nel vigoroso e sicuro senso della lingua, che lo rende prezioso.. Nello stesso tempo, avendo conosciuto, come si è detto, di persona l'Alighieri (assai probabilmente in uno dei frequenti soggiorni compiuti dal chiosatore in alta Italia, da ascrivere a motivi professionali), l'Ottimo sente meglio degli altri commentatori alcuni aspetti della sua biografia materiale (anche di cittadino e di uomo politico), riuscendo a narrare aneddoti succosi con gusto personale, e a darci (o a confermarci preziosamente) utilissime notizie storiche, come nel caso degli avvenimenti fra il 1302 e il 1304 o dell'ambasciata anteriore presso Bonifacio. Non sarà poi neppure da trascurare, ma anzi da mettere fortemente in rilievo, la capacità dell'Ottimo di cogliere nei suoi esatti termini la genuina poetica dantesca.. È insomma una nuova realtà che si estende per tutto il commento, e avvalora, con la sua maggiore obbiettività e storicità, il carattere dell'esposizione." (Francesco Mazzoni in Enciclopedia Dantesca, 1970). Mambelli, n. 154 (con ampia bibliografia): "Questo commento - ritenuto di un contemporaneo di Dante e riprodotto in ben 22 codici - è quello che i "Deputati", nel Proemio delle loro annotazioni sopra il "Decameron", chiamarono ora il buono, ora l'antico commento e Francesco Selmi diceva "composto a mosaico" sulle opere precedenti di altri, alcune chiose avendo la data 1333 (Parad. XII, 79) altre quella del 1350 (Purgatorio, XXIII, 97)..Da molti si ritiene, opera del notaio fiorentino ser Andrea Lancia, noto volgarizzatore di opere del XIV secolo da quanto si legge da un codice Magliabechiano". De Batines, 166 - 167. Italiano

        De la peine de mort

      Brussels: H. Tarlier, Libraire-Éditeur,, 1827. Octavo. Original blue paper wrappers printed in black. Italian bookseller's ticket to front pastedown. Spine strengthened at foot with tape, slight foxing throughout; an excellent copy. First edition. De la peine de mort was the Belgian journalist and prison reformer's first book, written when he was twenty-three years old. Ducpétiaux earned himself a name and an official position as inspector general of prisons on the strength of this passionate and ambitious plea for the abolition of capital punishment. He argued that the alternative to capital punishment was a prison system centred on the improvement of the prisoner.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      [Stuttgart, 22.1.1827]. - 1 S., verso Adresse (Faltbrief). 4to. Beiliegend Stahlstichportrait. Unbekanntes Schreiben an den Schriftsteller Carl Herloßsohn (1804-49), unter der Adresse der Taubert'schen Buchhandlung, Leipzig: "Verehrter! Die vielen Geschäfte, die eine Redaction des M[orgen] Blattes und eine Vorbereitung auf die Hochzeit, die in 14 Tagen von sich gehen soll, machen, müßten einigermaßen mein Schweigen entschuldigen, wenn ich auch nicht vor acht Tagen in München gewesen wäre. So gerne ich Ihrem Wunsche entsprechen würde, so kann es gewiß nicht seyn. Ich habe schon vier solcher Anträge aus dem Grund abgelehnt, daß ich selbst ein Taschenb. redigire und nicht bei einem zweiten figuriren kann; es geht also wahrhaftig nicht! [Und] einen Beitrag kann ich Ihnen nicht geben ohne Brockhaus, Hell, Lambert [?] etc. etc. welchen ich abgeschlagen, aufs tiefste und ganz ohne Grund zu beleidigen. Ihre Kräfte sind übrigens der Sache gewachsen, wenn Sie auch allein stehen. Daß ich meine kritische Stimme für sie laut werden lassen und Ihre Sache unterstützen werde, kann ich Sie versichern. Ich denke wir können auch gute Freunde bleiben, wenigstens soll es an mir nicht fehlen. Auf ihre Novelle freue ich mich sehr. Entschuldigen Sie meine Eile mit dem lieben Mund meiner Braut, die nun gerade gerne geküßt sein möchte. Leben sie wohl und gedenken Sie zuweilen Ihres ganz ergebenen Dr. W. Hauffs. / Nach diesem Brief werde ich schließen. Uebrigens erzählt man sich von meiner Zerstreutheit noch tollere Anecdoten, als welche Sie erlebten." - Herloßsohn, der sich wie Hauff über den populären Autor Heinrich Clauren belustigte und durch Hauffs Clauren-Parodie "Der Mann im Mond" zu Hauffs Bewunderer und Nachahmer wurde, plante "ein Taschenbuch herauszugeben, das (wie Claurens) 'Vergißmeinnicht' heißen, aber nicht mehr aus parodistischen Texten bestehen sollte", und hatte Hauff, dessen Namen er gern auf dem Titelblatt gesehen hätte, um seine Mitarbeit gebeten (Fischer, S. 126). Bereits mehrere Wochen zuvor hatte Hauff das Ansinnen abgelehnt, da er selbst mit der zunehmend unerfreulichen Redaktion von Cottas 'Taschenbuchs für Damen' ausgelastet war; außerdem müsse er fürchten, als unruhiger Kopf in Festungshaft genommen zu werden (Brief vom 26. 12. 1826, in: Hauff, Werke II [hg. v. H. Engelhard], S. 887). Darüber hinaus steckte er in den Vorbereitungen für die Hochzeit mit seiner Cousine Louise, die am 13. Februar stattfand. Auf der anschließenden Sommerreise nach Tirol zog sich Hauff die Typhuserkrankung zu, an der er noch 24-jährig am 18. November 1827 starb. - Die Bedeutung von "Hauffs Korrespondenz mit Autoren, Verlegern und Herausgebern" ist von Susanne Fischer in ihrer gleichnamigen Magisterschrift (Hamburg 1988) gewürdigt worden; ihr Zensus gibt 207 bisher bekannte erhaltene Von-Briefe an, wovon 97 nicht veröffentlicht seien, die restlichen 110 zum Teil nur in Auszügen. - Verso in roter Tinte Empfängervermerk: "Dr. W. Hauff / Jänner 1827". Gefaltet; etwas fleckig; Randeinrisse: Ausriss (mit minimalem Buchstabenverlust) von der Siegelöffnung in den 1880er Jahren hinterlegt. Spuren alter Montage in Registraturband.

Contemporary half calf, marbled boards, raised bands, titles to compartment and decorations to bands gilt, decorations to compartments in blind, edges speckled red, marbled endpapers. With 5 engravings printed by the society, as well as 19 sketches, 10 in pencil and 9 in water colour. Birmingham Bookbinder's ticket to front pastedown. Joints skilfully repaired, extremities slightly bumped, boards lightly rubbed, occasional spotting to text block. A very good copy. A rare publicity album produced by the Female Society for the Relief of British Negro Slaves in Birmingham for fund raising and an early example of shock publicity tactics. Active between 1825 and 1919, the Society sought to "waken attention, circulate information, and introduce to the notice of the affluent and influential classes? acknowledge of the real state of suffering and humiliation under which British Slaves yet groan" (Annual Report 1825). Subscriptions were collected from members of the Society as well as donations from other interested parties, and the monies then forwarded to anti-slavery groups in Britain or overseas. The monies received by the society were also responsible for funding specific projects, two of which included black American Booker Taliaferro Washington (1856-1915 who was responsible for founding the Tuskegee Institute, Alabama and Amanda Smith (1837-1915). Produced to promote their ideas, albums such as this consist of a mixture of anti-slavery items especially printed for the society. This album includes: - "An Extract from Colonel Arthur's Letter." This leaf describes the state of "the slave Kitty at the post of a bed, with chain was bound round so close that she could not stand or move. I saw a cut upon her left ear, and many stripes upon her back: her face bore visible marks of whipping ? ." - The Second Report of the Female Society for Birmingham, West Bromwich, Wednesbury, Walsall, and their respective neighbourhoods, for the relief of British Negro Slaves. Established 1825. (Birmingham: Printed by B. Hudson, Bull Street. [1826]). - Extracts from the Royal Jamaica Gazette, Volume XLVIII, No. 40. From Saturday, September 30, to Saturday, October 7, 1826 (Jamaica: Alex. Aikman, 1826). - CLARKSON, Thomas. Negro Slavery: Argument, That the Colonial Slaves are better off than the British Peasantry, Answered, from the Royal Jamaica Gazette (1824). - In the Jamaica Gazette of July 3, 1824 is contained the following Advertisement?Here we have a negro man, claimed as a slave by no one, accused of no crime, but who is seized as a runaway, put in jail, and at last sold for the payment of his jail fees? - Ladies Society for the Relief of Negro Slaves. Card Explanatory of the Contents of the Society's Work Bags and Albums (Birmingham, c. 1826). - Twenty-Six Points of Comparison between Hebrew Slavery, under the Mosaic Dispensation?; fifteen centuries anterior to the light of Christianity, and British Colonial & American Slavery, under the Christian Dispensation, in the early part* of the Nineteenth Century after Christ ? ([Bristol] J. Taylor, Printer, Bristol MirrorOffice, Small-street. [1823]). - Case of the Vigilante, a Ship Employed in the Slave-Trade with Some Reflections on That Traffic (London: Harvey Darton, 1826) - The Worn-Out Negro Slave. Also included are 5 engravings depicting slaves, as well as 19 pencil and water colour sketches by a previous owner depicting Cornish countryside. OCLC lists only three other copies of such albums, two at Princeton and one in Birmingham; most likely many of the albums have been broken up for their contents. The contents in this album are consistent with the copies held at Princeton.

        A Voyage to the Moon: with some Account of the Manners and Customs, Science and Philosophy, of the people of Morosofia, and other Lunarians.

      New York: Elam Bliss,, 1827. Octavo (190 x 106 mm). Contemporary tree sheep, red morocco label. Ownership inscription "J. Beatty Jenning" to the front free endpaper in pencil. Joints cracking and corners lightly worn, intermittent foxing, more severe in places, but a very fine copy in unrestored condition. First edition of a scarce lunar imaginary voyage, "regarded by many as the first genuine work of science fiction to emanate from an American author" (Howgego), written by George Tucker, an American lawyer born in Bermuda, appointed by Thomas Jefferson in 1825 as professor of moral philosophy at the University of Virginia. In A Voyage to the Moon, "the hero and pseudonymous author Joseph Atterley, a native of Long Island, takes a voyage to the Orient in one of his father's ships. The ship founders off the Burmese coast and Atterley is captured and taken inland. While under a sort of house arrest, he meets Gurameer, a Brahmin who has been to the moon. With the help of some natives they construct an air-tight vessel made partly of lunarium (a metal that repels the earth and is attracted to the moon), and after a three-day voyage the two travellers land in the lunar region of Morosofia. The moon, together with its Mongoloid population and its flora and fauna, is a dislocated fragment of the earth. The progress of the two men through the lunar society, and their meeting with the excessively foolish Glonglins, becomes a vehicle for satire, prediction and social comment, many familiar personalitites being represented by anagrams and puns (e.g. Vindar is Darwin; Lozzi Pozzi is Pestalozzi; and Wighurd is William Godwin). The travellers eventually return to earth, landing in South America where the Brahmin travels the Andes to confirm certain theories about the moon's origin and Atterley returns by ship to New York." (Howgego).

        Personal Narrative of Adventures in the Peninsula during the War in 1812-1813. By an Officer late in the Staff Corps Regiment of Cavalry.

      London: John Murray, 1827 - Octavo (183 x 111 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, decorative gilt spine, green morocco label, red & brown speckled edges. Contemporary armorial bookplate of Alexander Gordon of Auchlunies, uncle to Wellington's chief ADC Sir Alexander Gordon. A crisp, clean copy in a lovely period binding. Wood engraving (at p. 239) of the main gateway at Palencia. First edition of this decidedly uncommon Peninsula War narrative; Copac locates seven copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (Cambridge, Oxford, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Manchester, Scotland, Southampton); not in OCLC. Buckham served mainly with the commissary and his first-hand account is an important one, particularly in that his approach to the campaign diverged from other writers of the time: "E. W. Buckham's Personal Narrative. which commiserated the soldiers' suffering rather than celebrate military adventure, was similarly criticised by the 'Naval and Military Magazine', which doubted that the author had even truly been a 'military man'" (Neil Ramsey, The Military Memoir and Romantic Literary Culture, 1780-1835, 2011, p. 75).

        Monkey-Ana or Men in Miniature

      London: Moon Boys & Graves, 1827. Prints. Very Good. Landseer, Thomas. Folio. 25 etched plates including the "Satirical Title" and "Contents" leaves; originally sold in six issues, each with four captioned prints. All but the title page and two of the prints are etchings on china paper, most are approximately 7" x 8.5". They are mounted on heavy, rag paper stock, approximately 10" x 15: (the title page and contents leaves are a little shorter). The other two prints are on thick rag paper stock of a lesser grade. This famous anthropomorphic work shows exceptionally life-like monkeys portraying scenes and passages from classic plays (e.g., Dryden and Shakespeare), popular songs (e.g., Ruini), poems (e.g., Byron, Cowper, and Pope), and slang (e.g., "Hookey Walker"). Although Landseer is best known for producing engravings and etchings of paintings by his more famous younger brother, Sir Edwin Landseer, Monkey-Ana shows that he was also an artist in his own right. The etchings all have fine impressions; some are identified as proofs. The mounts have some minor edge wear and toning; it appears that they may have once been bound. Scanner size limitations preclude capturing entire leaves in the accompanying images. Each of the individual prints is suitable for framing, or, if bound as a whole this would make for a very attractive book.

        Machina inventata dal Nobile Sig. Annesio Fusconi messa in pratica a Sue Spese nel Lago di Nemi l`Anno 1827. per estrarre gl` Oggetti dalla Nave dell` Imper. Tiberio ivi immersa.

      (Rom?), 1827.Lithographie (Luigi M. Valadier. Dis. e Stamp.) mit 2 Abbildungen und Text zu den einzelnen Objekten. 44 x 32 cm. Zeigt das Floß mit der großen Taucherglocke zur Bergung von Artefakten aus den sog. Nemi - Schiffen, zwei großer antiker Schiffe, die Kaiser Caligula zu Ehren der Göttin Diana bauen ließ. Die Schiffe wurden wohl kurz nach dessen Tod im Lago di Nemi versenkt, einem Kratersee in den Albaner Bergen, rund 30 km südöstlich von Rom. Erste Bergungsversuche wurden bereits 1446 unternommen. Annesio Fusconi startete einen weiteren Versuch 1827, blieb aber ebenso erfolglos wie seine zahlreichen Vorgänger. Allerdings konnte er eine Vielzahl an Artefakten durch sein hier abgebildetes Konstrukt an Land befördern. Erst 1929/1930 wurden die Schiffe auf Initiative Benito Mussolinis, der die Hebung zu einem wichtigen Ziel seiner Regierung erklärt hatte, geborgen. Nach der Restaurierung wurden sie 1940 in Rom ausgestellt, aber schon 1944 durch ein verheerendes Feuer fast vollständig zerstört. - Leicht stockfleckig; oberer Rand mit Knickspuren. Bücher it

        Monkey-Ana or Men in Miniature

      London: Moon Boys & Graves, 1827. Prints. Very Good. Landseer, Thomas. Folio. 25 etched plates including the "Satirical Title" and "Contents" leaves; originally sold in six issues, each with four captioned prints. All but the title page and two of the prints are etchings on china paper, most are approximately 7" x 8.5". They are mounted on heavy, rag paper stock, approximately 10" x 15: (the title page and contents leaves are a little shorter). The other two prints are on thick rag paper stock of a lesser grade. This famous anthropomorphic work shows exceptionally life-like monkeys portraying scenes and passages from classic plays (e.g., Dryden and Shakespeare), popular songs (e.g., Ruini), poems (e.g., Byron, Cowper, and Pope), and slang (e.g., "Hookey Walker"). Although Landseer is best known for producing engravings and etchings of paintings by his more famous younger brother, Sir Edwin Landseer, Monkey-Ana shows that he was also an artist in his own right. The etchings all have fine impressions; some are identified as proofs. The mounts have some minor edge wear and toning; it appears that they may have once been bound. Scanner size limitations preclude capturing entire leaves in the accompanying images. Each of the individual prints is suitable for framing, or, if bound as a whole this would make for a very attractive book.
