        Manuscript on paper, in English. "Album.

      [U.K. 8vo (18.9 cm, 7.45"). [143] ff.; illus.. 1828–33] This remarkably substantial collection opens with a neatly hand-inked Burns quotation: "O may the powers the giftie gie me, [/] To see mysel as others see me," followed by two mounted engravings giving the text of the Lord's Prayer and Psalm 100 in extremely "micro" form. From there the volume offers a wide variety of early 19th-century poems, quotations, plates, and original illustrations, preserved on both plain white and on pink, green, yellow, dark blue, and turquoise pages. The => original illustrations include pencil sketches of ships in a stormy sea and of stately country homes, a hand-colored moth (one of two) excised and affixed to a watercolored branch of flowers, a pretty spray of colorful blooms signed by Fanny Simpson of Doncaster, and an oil-painted scene of cows in a misty pastoral setting; among the images taken from printed sources are steel-engraved views of Cliffords Tower and Laythorp Postern, "Feramorz relating the story of the Peri," and a portrait of Sir Walter Scott. The many poems include "Forget-me-not," Thomas Campbell's lines on Hope, "Lines Written in the First Leaf of a Friend's Album" (slightly mistitled here, originally written by Bernard Barton), a meditation on the letter E, and an imitation of "Oh no! we never mention her" that closes with "I never can forget"; some entries, e.g., Jessy Steele's "On Leaving Home," seem to be original/occasional. Also present is => an original poem signed by John Roby, folklorist and author of Traditions of Lancashire, with the version as inscribed here in Roby's hand (titled "The hush'd Tempest" and dated Rochdale, 1828) differing slightly from "The Storm," the published form which appeared in The Investigator in 1820. There is one page offering a puzzle; another offers one verse in French; and a third presents us with => a particularly fine version of "The Map of Matrimony," beautifully rendered and with a verse from Cowper underneath. It is possible that more extended sleuthing than we can indulge in might locate this book within a particular family and circle. Fanny Simpson, signing one of her several charming artistic contributions at full length, gives us a Doncaster connection. An "M. Simpson" / "M.S." appears more than once; was the "Isabella" / "Isabella S" who signed her contribution from Byron intimately, with her given name only, a sister? There are Bayne, Newall, and Stockdale connections; at least TWO Steeles made entries, the Jessy above and also Thomas, who contributed a number of entries penned in calligraphic mode — one or two of these signed in full and many others signed "T.S." Was John Roby a family friend?? Half black sheep in imitation of morocco over marbled paper–covered sides, leather edges (including corners) with gilt roll, spine gilt extra; binding rubbed and scuffed overall, but still dignified. All edges gilt. Pages slightly age-toned, with occasional small spots; a few instances of offsetting from or uneven fading to colored paper. Some plates foxed. A rich and warmly evocative early 19th-century commonplace book, one emanating both Sense and Sensibility as well cultivated in Accomplishments.

        MEMOIRES DE VIDOCQ, CHEF DE LA POLICE DE SURETE, JUSQU'EN 1827.

      Tenon, Libraire-Editeur, 1828 - 1829., 1828 -1829. All four volumes are first editions. Each is 8vo. Volume One is compiled from Vidocq's notes by Emile Morice; Volumes Two, Three, and Four are by Louis Francois L'Hertier. Each is bound in 1/4 uniform red leather with maroon and red marbled boards, marbled endpapers. Gold gilt spine lettering, and ruled lines. Volumes One to Three are signed by Vidocq as called for. Engraved portrait of Vidocq as the frontispiece of Volume Four. Vidocq is regarded by Haycraft/Queen as "The Grandfather Of The Detective Story." Vidocq rose from a life of crime to Chief of the Surete and innovator of many scientific procedures to catch criminals. Vidocq (1775-1857) had a tremendous influence on contemporary and later authors of the genre: "Poe, Hugo, Balzac, Dumas, Dickens, Collins, and Doyle. The fullest and most direct fictional expression of the Vidocq influence, however, occurred in the works of his compatriot, Emile Gaboriau (1833-1873)."- Murder For Pleasure p.29 -30. Bindings a little scuffed on the edges, but bright and unfaded. The contents complete with all half titles. Spotted throughout and with a previous owner’s ink stamp on the title page of each volume. Bookplate on the pastedown of all four volumes. An attractive very good set. A hugely popular character and a very influential story. Balzac’s character Vautrin is based on the convict-policeman. A Haycraft Queen Cornerstone.

        RAIL ROAD MARCH. FOR THE FOURTH OF JULY. DEDICATED TO THE DIRECTORS OF THE BALTIMORE & OHIO RAIL ROAD. COMPOSED & ARRANGED FOR THE PIANO FORTE

      Baltimore, 1828. Quarto. Dbd. Some foxing and soiling. About very good. "Second edition," following the first of the same year. Scarce printing of the sheet music for a march composed for the groundbreaking of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, featuring one of the earliest illustrations of a railroad in the United States that we know of, showing the engine and four small cars. The engineer stands on the side of the engine, and the fireman sits on the front of the tender. The scene is surmounted by a large eagle, which holds two shields in its beak, one of which resembles the Maryland state flag. The music was composed by Christopher Meineke, a German-born composer and pianist who settled in Baltimore, composed much original music (both sacred and secular), and was for many years the organist of St. Paul's Church. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad was the first passenger railroad in the United States, and on July 4, 1828 a huge celebration was held for the groundbreaking of the line, at the site of the present Camden Yards baseball park in Baltimore. This sheet music was written for that momentous event. Not in Wolfe's bibliography of secular music in America, though he does list many other compositions by Meineke. OCLC locates a total of six copies of this second edition.

        [CONSECUTIVE RUN OF LOUISIANA LAWS FROM THE FIRST SEVENTEEN SESSIONS OF THE STATE LEGISLATURE, 1812 - 1828]

      New Orleans, 1828. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Small ink library stamp to titlepages, embossed blind-stamp to most titlepages, occasional ink ownership signature, some small paper repairs, minor foxing, some leaves closely trimmed, a few small marginal tears, including the bottom corner of one titlepage, some tears with minor effect to text (individually enumerated in the detailed list below), minor occasional staining, mostly marginal or in the gutters. Overall, a good set. An superb consecutive set of the first seventeen session laws issued after Louisiana achieved statehood in 1812, comprising the laws from the first session of the first "General Assembly" or legislature to the second session of the Eighth Legislature. A wealth of interesting information on the early affairs of Louisiana, at a time when the state was at the western extreme of the United States. The first volume contains much to be expected from a first legislature: a resolution giving the legislature's assent to "an enlargement of the limits of the State of Louisiana," an act regarding the salaries of various state officials, an act establishing election methods for various public offices including the U.S. House of Representatives, an act authorizing a state loan, and an act to organize a "Corps of Militia for the Service of the State of Louisiana." Understandably, there is a voluminous amount of information regarding slavery in the state throughout the laws. During the first session of the legislature alone, two of the twenty- four acts enumerated concern reimbursement from state funds for lost slaves (one to imprisonment and one killed while trying to run away). There are also acts relative to runaway slaves, private emancipation, and more. Towards the end of the run, the eighth legislature passed an act prohibiting entry of slaves into the state for purposes of sale. Other acts contained here organize the City of New Orleans into wards, with various and numerous laws on internal improvements, civil law, and criminal law. While individual volumes come to the market on occasion, nothing like this group has ever been offered at retail; it is a collection that would be impossible to assemble today on a book-by-book basis.

        FLORA AUSTRALASICA; OR, A SELECTION OF HANDSOME, OR CURIOUS PLANTS, NATIVES OF NEW HOLLAND, AND THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDS; CONTAINING COLOURED FIGURES AND DESCRIPTIONS OF SOME OF THE CHOICEST SPECIES

      London, 1828. Contemporary embossed cloth, expertly rebacked with original gilt backstrip laid down. Light wear and sun fading to binding. Minute foxing. Plates generally quite clean. Very good. An important and rare work of Australian botany, a pioneering effort in describing plants from Australia and the South Seas which had been brought to England. Illustrated with fifty-six elegant handcolored plates, all richly colored. The letterpress descriptions are numbered 1 to 56, each occupying two pages and accompanied by a stunning handcolored engraved botanical plate. Sweet presented the plants as suitable for garden cultivation, noting that "the greater part are handsome evergreen shrubs, and many produce sweet-scented flowers...." Sweet (1783-1835) was a notable British nurseryman who wrote extensively on botanical subjects, including HORTUS SUBURBANUS LONDINENSIS (1818), HORTUS BRITANNICUS (1826- 27), BOTANICAL CULTIVATOR (1821), THE BRITISH FLOWER GARDEN (1823-29), and numerous other titles. All of the plants described here are ones Sweet cultivated in England, and thus all of the plates were drawn from live specimens. His work in this regard was based directly on the methods of Sir Joseph Banks.

        SAD TALES AND GLAD TALES; By Reginald Reverie [pseudonym] ...

      Boston: S. G. Goodrich, 141 Washington Street,. 1828. original drab boards with purple cloth shelf back, printed paper label affixed to spine panel, all edges untrimmed.. Free endpapers removed, cloth a bit sunned, boards rubbed at edges. and lightly spotted and soiled, a very good copy. (#137510). First edition. Grenville Mellen (1799-1841), lawyer, author, born in Biddeford (now in the State of Maine), contributed poems, prose sketches and tales to the UNITED STATES LITERARY GAZETTE and to the literary annuals, THE ATLANTIC SOUVENIR and THE LEGENDARY. SAD TALES AND GLAD TALES, Mellen's first and only collection of prose sketches and stories, "is interesting chiefly as pioneer work leading up to the short story as later developed by Hawthorne and Poe. His tales show the influence of Irving, but are more diffuse, sentimental, and mystifying." - DAB. According to Locke (Voyages in Space [2011] V564), "The Meeting of the Planets" is "a literary satire in which the planets and stars are given personalities and discourse among themselves"; while "The Tale of an Aeronaut" concerns a balloonist who "ascends into space and drifts among the planets and comets listening in on their conversations, including the Moon plotting against Earth, before returning to Earth to find himself over the Battle of Waterloo." Locke, Voyages in Space (2011) V564. Foley, p. 194. Wright (I) 1859.

        SIMON BOLIVAR LIBERTADOR PRESIDENTE DE COLOMBIA &&&. COLOMBIANOS! LAS VOLUNTADES PUBLICAS SE HABIAN ESPRESADO ENERJICAMENTE POR LAS REFORMAS POLITICAS DE LA NACION...[caption title and first line of text]

      Bogotá, 1828. Folio. Old creases. Minor soiling. Very good plus. In a half morocco and cloth box, leather labels. An extremely rare broadside printing of Bolivar's declaration of dictatorial powers, addressed to the people of Gran Colombia, together with the DECRETO ORGÁNICO issued by him, outlining the organization of his new government. The two documents - bearing the same watermark, folds, and publication date - appear to have been issued together to the Treasury; a contemporary hand has written "Tesoreria" on the first leaf, and the wear patterns suggest that they have been kept together for some time. Simon Bolivar was already president and founding hero of Gran Colombia (present-day Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, and parts of Peru). In February 1827, with the nation floundering and on the point of fragmentation, Bolivar had proposed resigning his position as president, claiming he had no desire for dictatorial control. The Congress rejected his resignation. After a failed constitutional convention in the summer of 1828, Bolivar declared himself, by this decree, dictator for life, in what was intended as a temporary measure to maintain unification. In the first document, Bolivar addresses the "Colombianos," explaining his reasoning for the extraordinary measures granting him absolute power over the government. He also assures his countrymen that he will not remain a dictator any longer than necessary, but in the meantime pledges to "commit myself to obey strictly your legitimate desires" (in translation). The second document, the DECRETO ORGÁNICO, lays out six articles granting Bolivar absolute power. Both are signed in type by Bolivar. Though the text of these important proclamations was anthologized at an early date and has frequently been republished, copies are exceedingly scarce on the market. We were able to locate only one institutional copy of each, at the John Carter Brown Library.

DEL DECRETO ORGANICO DE 27 AGOSTO ULTIMO, OIDO DICTAMEN DEL CONSEJO DE ESTADO DECRETO... [first few lines of text]

      Bojaca, Colombia, 1828. Folio. Minor soiling. Near fine. Simón Bolívar had long dreamed of uniting his new republics (which he had wrested by force from the Kingdom of Spain) by establishing a government modeled after that of the United States. By 1826, however, Gran Colombia's twelve departments were proving more and more difficult to govern. In an effort to preserve his dream, he decided a more centralized form of government would be necessary. A congress was convened in April, 1828, in order to write a new constitution. The convention nearly succeeded in implementing a federal style government that would have greatly reduced Bolívar's political power. Bolívar's supporters withdrew in protest, leaving the congress dead in the water. In response, Bolívar proclaimed himself dictator through the Decree of Dictatorship on August 27, 1828, considering it a temporary measure. Following his proclamation, Colombian Secretary of the Interior José Manuel Restrepo released the present decree. The decree outlines the structure and function of the government as authorized by the August 27, 1828 Decree of Dictatorship containing a total of twenty-two articles. Article one states that the territories of the Republic will remain in the present jurisdictions and will retain their names. However, the government retains the right to combine two or more areas into a single jurisdiction. The rest of the articles outline the appointment of prefects and their authorities of rule, including powers of legislation, command of police, and issuing of prison sentences and fines.

        Caroline Therese FRIEDRICH (1828 Dresden 1914) Blumenstrauß mit Stiefmütterchen

      - Caroline Therese FRIEDRICH (1828 Dresden 1914) Blumenstrauß mit Stiefmütterchen -- Technik: -- Aquarell auf Karton, unten links signiert: "Fr. Caroline Friedrich fec. ". -- Maße: -- 22,7 x 16,5 cm -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand, vereinzelt ganz winzige Flecken. -- Beschreibung: -- Intensive Naturbeobachtung, zeichnerische Präzision und ein Gespür für das natürliche Kolorit " in diesem kleinen Aquarell führt Caroline Friedrich wahrhaftig ihr Talent vor. Es ist ein Frühlingsstrauß mit Stiefmütterchen, Primeln und Apfelblüten, in dem jede Blume in ihrer farblichen sowie formalen Erscheinung exakt wiedergegeben wird. Von den großen holländischen Stilllebenmeister, allen voran Jan van Huysum, inspiriert, geht es ihr aber primär darum, die Natur genau wiederzugeben, statt die Blumenkomposi-tionen zum Träger von verschlüsselten Botschaften zu machen. Carolines Ehemann, Gustav Adolf Friedrich, ein bekannter Porträt- und Genremaler und Sohn von Caspar David Friedrich, dürfte sie zuerst in der bildenden Kunst unterrichtet haben, ihr Studium an der Kunstakademie ist nicht nachweisbar. Als Autodidaktin per-fektionierte sie daraufhin ihre Zeichen- und Malkunst und stellte über 30 Jahre lang ihre Werke an der Dresdner Kunstakademie aus. Anlässlich diverser Ausstellungen wurde in den letzten Jahren viel über talentierte Künstlerinnen diskutiert, die das männerdominierte Ausbildungssystem ihrer Chancen auf Ruhm beraubte. Das Werk von Caroline Friedrich außerhalb dieses Kontextes zu betrachten und seine Bedeutung schlicht als wichtiges Werk ihrer Zeit wahrzunehmen, könnte ihr postum (und damit auch den anderen Künstlerinnen) die größte Würdigung erweisen. Denn ihre Bilder zeigen, dass die wahre künstlerische Berufung bedeutende Werke hervorbringt, ungeachtet jeglicher gesellschaftspolitischer Umstände. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Consecutive Run of Louisiana Laws from the First Seventeen Sessions of the State Legislature, 1812 - 1828]

      New Orleans 1828 - Seventeen volumes, octavo, publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Small ink library stamp to titlepages, embossed blind-stamp to most titlepages, occasional ink ownership signature, some small paper repairs, minor foxing, some leaves closely trimmed, a few small marginal tears, including the bottom corner of one titlepage, some tears with minor effect to text (individually enumerated in the detailed list below), minor occasional staining, mostly marginal or in the gutters. An superb consecutive set of the first seventeen session laws issued after Louisiana achieved statehood in 1812, comprising the laws from the first session of the first "General Assembly" or legislature to the second session of the Eighth Legislature. A wealth of interesting information on the early affairs of Louisiana, at a time when the state was at the western extreme of the United States. The first volume contains much to be expected from a first legislature: a resolution giving the legislature's assent to "an enlargement of the limits of the State of Louisiana," an act regarding the salaries of various state officials, an act establishing election methods for various public offices including the U.S. House of Representatives, an act authorizing a state loan, and an act to organize a "Corps of Militia for the Service of the State of Louisiana." Understandably, there is a voluminous amount of information regarding slavery in the state throughout the laws. During the first session of the legislature alone, two of the twenty-four acts enumerated concern reimbursement from state funds for lost slaves (one to imprisonment and one killed while trying to run away). There are also acts relative to runaway slaves, private emancipation, and more. Towards the end of the run, the eighth legislature passed an act prohibiting entry of slaves into the state for purposes of sale. Other acts contained here organize the City of New Orleans into wards, with various and numerous laws on internal improvements, civil law, and criminal law. While individual volumes come to the market on occasion, nothing like this group has ever been offered at retail; it is a collection that would be impossible to assemble today on a book-by-book basis. The imprints included here are as follows: 1) Acts Passed at the First Session of the First General Assembly of the State of Louisiana. New Orleans: Thierry, 1812. 91pp. Jumonville 226; Shaw & Shoemaker 25881. 2) Acts Passed at the Second Session of the First Legislature of the State of Louisiana.

Ausgabe).- Hahnemann (1755 Meißen - 1843 Paris) "begann 1775 das Studium der Medizin, ging 1777 nach Wien, war sodann für einige Zeit in Siebenbürgen als Hausarzt und Bibliothekar tätig und wurde im Sommer 1779 in Erlangen zum Dr. med. promoviert. Es folgten etliche Jahre eines unsteten Lebens auf der Suche nach einer auskömmlichen Praxis. 1793 wurde H. in die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina gewählt. 1805 ließ er sich als Arzt in Torgau nieder, 1811 in Leipzig. Wichtigstes Antriebsmoment für sein wissenschaftliches Leben war die kritische Auseinandersetzung mit der traditionellen Medizin, der er mit dem Organon der rationellen Heilkunde, das zu seinen Lebzeiten noch vier weitere Auflagen erfuhr, 1810 sein neues System der Homöopathie entgegensetzte. Am Anfang stand 1790 sein berühmter Selbstversuch mit Chinin, zu dem er sich durch die Übersetzung und Bearbeitung der Materia medica von William Cullen veranlaßt sah. Sein daraus abgeleiteter Grundsatz "Similia similibus" wurde erstmals 1796 in Christoph Wilhelm Hufelands Journal veröffentlicht. Die neue Lehre besagte, daß Krankheiten nicht, wie bisher, durch "allopathische" Mittel (contraria contrariis) zu behandeln seien, sondern durch Medikamente, die am Gesunden Symptome erzeugen, die der zu behandelnden Krankheit ähnlich sind. Die Arzneien, die am Gesunden zu prüfen sind, wirken H. zufolge nicht materiell, sondern dynamisch auf die ebenfalls dynamische Lebenskraft ein; ihre Wirkkraft wird durch schrittweises Verdünnen (sogenanntes Potenzieren) erhöht. 1812 habilitierte sich H. in Leipzig und gewann seine ersten Anhänger, die sich schon bald in die heute noch bestehenden Fraktionen der "klassischen" und "naturwissenschaftlich-kritischen" Homöopathen spalteten. Die Vertreter der Universitätsmedizin lehnten H.s neue Heilmethode durchweg radikal ab. Konflikte mit den Leipziger Apothekern wegen unerlaubter Arzneidispensation ließen H. 1821 nach Köthen übersiedeln, wo er unter dem Schutz des Herzogs Ferdinand von Anhalt-Köthen eine weitverzweigte homöopathische Praxis betrieb. Hier veröffentlichte er 1828 die ersten drei Teile seines Werkes 'Die chronischen Krankheiten, ihre eigenthümliche Natur und homöopathische Heilung', in dem er die Lehre von den sogenannten psorischen Krankheiten entwickelte. Während der Choleraepidemie, die 1831/32 weite Teile Europas heimsuchte, gewannen seine Empfehlungen zur Prophylaxe und Therapie große Popularität" (Saur, DBE).- Nur vereinzelt etwas stockfleckig, sonst ein gutes Exemplar.

        Eigenh. Brief m. U.

      St. Petersburg, 17./29.II.1828 - 4to. 5 pp. 2 Doppelblätter. Ränder gebräunt. Winzige Falzlöcher. An den französischen Aussenminister, Pierre-Louis-Auguste Ferron, comte de La Ferronais (1777- 1842). Der Brief beginnt ohne Anrede, mit Dank für ein übersandtes Portrait:„Puisque nous ne pouvons pas Vous recevoir en personne ce sera au moins une petite incitation, mon cher Comte, que de Vous pendre en peinture. Vous ne pouviez me faire de cadeau plus agréable ; Votre portrait sera suspendu à coté de celui de ma femme, Vous trouverez bon que nous Vous traitions en ami de la maison." Nesselrode bedauert, dass Frankreich angesichts der verworrenen Lage den bisherigen Botschafter Fontenaye aus Russland abzieht : „Je regrette vivement que vous ayez cru devoir changer Votre première intention à l’égard de Fontenay. D’après ce que Vous m’aviez mandé j’avais espéré que nous le garderions jusqu’à la nomination d’un nouveau Ambassadeur. L’ordre que Vous lui avez envoyé de venir à Paris nous a donné un véritable chagrin. N’y avait il donc pas moyen de revenir encore sur cette disposition Vous feriez une chose bien agréable pour nous et j’ose ajouter bien utile pour les affaires. Quelque soit le mérite de Mr. Bourgoing, il est difficile que j’accorde à un nouveau venu dés le premier moment, la même confiance que je suis habitué à vouer à Fontenay. J’ose affirmer que dans les circonstances graves où nous nous trouvons, personne ne Vous servira ici mieux que lui."Die Hohe Pforte habe ein Edikt ausgegeben – nämlich die Sperrung des Bosporus für russische Schiffe–,das der Zar nicht akzeptieren könne,es habe ihn zur Kriegserklärung gezwungen: „Elles se sont compliquées a un tel point, et par les illusions, que le Discours du Roi d’Angleterre ne manquera pas de faire naître à la Porte, et par le Hatti Cherif" - ein vom Sultan abgezeichnetes Dekret – „qu’elle a publié, sans même attendre cet encouragement, qu’il nous est impossible de rester d’avantage dans la situation où nous sommes. Ne prenez pas pour des exagerations diplomatiques ce que Vous lirez dans la dépêche que Pozzi" – der korsische Edelmann Charles-André Comte Pozzo di Borgo (1764-1842) war der russische Gesandte am französischen Hof – „Vous communiquera. Le tableau qu’il trace n’est point chargé, il repose malheureusement sur des faits trop réels. Par les mesures que la Porte a prises depuis le départ des Ambassadeurs le commerce d’Odessa perd déjà plus de 28 millions de Roubles, les insinuations du Divan ont fait rompre nos négociations avec la Porte, partout il excite nos sujets musulman à la révolte, enfin nos préparatifs militaires entrainent des frais considérables [ ] et si [ ] il nous est pénible de nous prêter à des organisations stériles, qui au bout de six mois nous rameneraient au même point où nous nous trouvons aujourd’hui. Ce n’est ni un désir de conquête ni l’amour de la guerre qui ont suggéré à l’Empereur la déclaration forte qu’il a prise, mais la conviction intime qu’elle offre l’unique moyen de vaincre la re- sistance de la Porte et de nous faire tous sortir honorablement de la crise actuelle [ ]".Auslöser des Krieges war die Unterstützung des griechischen Unabhängigkeitskampfes durch Russland. Der Krieg endete in einer bitteren Niederlage für den Sultan. Im Vertrag von Adrianopel musste das osmanische Reich Russland einen Grossteil der Schwarzmeerküste überlassen, Armenien und Syrien wurden unabhängig, Russland erhielt das Donaudelta.
