        The Life of John Ledyard, the American Traveller; comprising selections from his Journals and Correspondence

      Cambridge, Boston, New York, Philadelphia: Hilliard and Brown, et al., 1828. Octavo, with the half-title, a little browned as usual; a very good copy in contemporary speckled calf, neatly rebacked to match. "One of the great American biographies" First edition of this biography of John Ledyard, the American who sailed as sergeant of marines in the Resolution on Cook's third voyage: 'one of the great American biographies' (Forbes).Ledyard was the author of one of the scarcer - if less reliable - surreptitious accounts of Cook's voyage (published Hartford, 1783). In every sense, this biography is a necessary companion to the original work and a significant addition to the Cook canon as a substantial portion of the text relates to Cook's third voyage, with important original letters as well as critical comments on Ledyard's narrative found nowhere else.In his later life Ledyard travelled to Europe, Siberia and Africa, meeting with figures such as Sir Joseph Banks and Thomas Jefferson. Shortly after his death in Egypt in 1789, his cousin, Dr Isaac Ledyard began accumulating material for a biography. His project never materialised and some years later the material was handed to the American historian Jared Sparks, editor of the North American Review and later president of Harvard University. Sparks used his considerable skill to integrate the original manuscript materials into the present engaging and compelling narrative, including additional important original letters relating to Ledyard, Cook and other officers of the Resolution. Forbes notes the considerable historical significance of Ledyard's life and commends the work as 'one of the great American biographies' (Hawaiian National Bibliography, 708).

      Bulla, Paris 1828 - Handcoloured lithograph, 385 x 290 mm.; a few light spots and a little gentle foxing, a very good copy overall. Aboriginal portraits and camp-fire scene. Engaging Australian Aboriginal portraits and camp scene from the official voyage account of Hyacinthe de Bougainville, who toured the South Pacific between 1824 and 1826.Edmond de la Touanne, whose work formed the basis of these fine lithographic portraits, was a friend and protégé of de Bougainville and sailed on his expedition as lieutenant de vaisseau. Because of the haste with which the expedition was manned, no official artist was sent; as Bougainville remarks, no pictorial record of the expedition would have survived but for de la Touanne's sketches, which were published as lithographs in the official record of the expedition and in de la Touanne's own album.

        Tables in illustration of the theory of definite proportionals; shewing the prime equivalent numbers of the elementary substances and the volume and weights in which they combine.

      John Murray 1828 Original cloth - backed boards, spine label; overall in superb condition. From the libraries of the Essex Institute, Francis Peabody Library, and Arnold Thackray, with both bookplates present. First edition and considered ?very scarce and not in the usual chemical bibliographies? (Neville). Noted as a significant book in the development of the theory of chemical combination, in which the combining weights of the known elements are presented in tabular form. It is also important because it gave an experimental basis to Dalton?s atomic theory and brought the use of equivalent weights into practice. Brande (1788 - 1866), apprenticed as an apothecary, studied medicine, but his main interest was chemistry. He succeeded Sir Humphry Davy to the chair of chemistry at the Royal Institution, and was director of their laboratory and mineralogical collection. At the Royal Institution, Brande devoted himself to chemical investigation, lectures, and writing, as well as editing the Quarterly Journal of Science and Art, where he was assisted by Michael Faraday. ?Never a major researcher in the sense of Davy or Faraday, he was an effective lecturer and writer of several important textbooks, all of which went through several additions? (ODNB, II, pp. 1124 - 1126).

        THE SPORTSMAN'S DIRECTORY; OR PARK AND GAMEKEEPER'S COMPANION

      Printed for Baldwin and Cradock et al., London 1828 - 191 x 121 mm (7 1/2 x 4 3/4"). vii, (1), 214 pp., [1] leaf. Fifth Edition. Appealing mid-19th century black straight-grain half morocco over marbled paper boards, raised bands, gilt spine titling, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Woodcut tailpiece, seven illustrations in the text, and one engraved plate. Title page with ink ownership signature, of John Sadlier Moody. Westwood & Satchell, p. 149-50; Albee, p. 109 (citing the 1845 edition). Upper corners slightly bumped, title page obviously browned from facing frontispiece, light offsetting and isolated trivial foxing in the text, but an excellent copy, the binding without significant wear, and the leaves almost entirely quite fresh and clean. Himself a gamekeeper, John Mayer envisages other professional gamekeepers as his primary audience, reminding them "not [to] forget the sandwich-case, and flask of brandy, to hand to the gentlemen, when their nerves get a little affected." The work covers the capture of badgers, bats, foxes, stags, pike, rats, and many more creatures, and details dozens of recipes for physicking hunting dogs. Although our title page informs us that we are looking at a fifth edition, all of the early printings are very rare, both in institutional settings and on the market; ABPC lists just two copies of this book (both from our edition) at auction since 1975.

        Hermann, Rudolf und Auguste Grimm, die Kinder von Wilhelm und Dorothea (Dortchen) Grimm. Staffelporträt im Profil nach links.

      . Radierung mit Plattenton, auf Velin. 11,5:13,5 cm. Literatur: Stoll 48. - Vorzüglicher Abdruck mit breitem Rand an drei Seiten, oben ca. 1,5 cm. Hermann (1828-1901), Kunsthistoriker; Rudolf (1830-1889), Regierungsrat; Auguste (geb. 1832). 1836 besuchten Marie und Ludwig Emil Grimm die Brüder in Göttingen. Das Wiedersehen auch mit Dortchen und den Kindern lenkte ein wenig von dem Schmerz über den Verlust ihres vier Wochen nach der Geburt gestorbenen Söhnchens ab. (Vgl. Stoll/Grimm, Erinnerungen aus meinem Leben. Leipzig, 1911, S. 487).. Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Kunstakademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834). Unterbrechung des Studiums 1814 durch Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen. Mit Georg Brentano reiste er im Frühjahr 1816 nach Italien, wo er zwei Monate blieb. 1817 kehrte er nach Kassel zurück. 1824 reiste Grimm zum ersten Mal nach Willingshausen und wurde zum Mitbegründer der Willingshäuser Malerkolonie, eine der ersten Malerkolonien Deutschlands. 1832 wurde er an die Kasseler Kunstakademie als Lehrer berufen.

        Tables in illustration of the theory of definite proportionals; shewing the prime equivalent numbers of the elementary substances and the volume and weights in which they combine

      London: John Murray, 1828 Original cloth-backed boards, spine label; overall in superb condition. From the libraries of the Essex Institute, Francis Peabody Library, and Arnold Thackray, with both bookplates present. First edition and considered ?"very scarce and not in the usual chemical bibliographies?" (Neville). Noted as a significant book in the development of the theory of chemical combination, in which the combining weights of the known elements are presented in tabular form. It is also important because it gave an experimental basis to Dalton?'s atomic theory and brought the use of equivalent weights into practice. Brande (1788-1866), apprenticed as an apothecary, studied medicine, but his main interest was chemistry. He succeeded Sir Humphry Davy to the chair of chemistry at the Royal Institution, and was director of their laboratory and mineralogical collection. At the Royal Institution, Brande devoted himself to chemical investigation, lectures, and writing, as well as editing the Quarterly Journal of Science and Art, where he was assisted by Michael Faraday. ?"Never a major researcher in the sense of Davy or Faraday, he was an effective lecturer and writer of several important textbooks, all of which went through several additions?" (ODNB, II, pp. 1124-1126).

        Proceedings of a General Court Martial held by Order of his Excellency Lieutenant General Sir James Kempt [...] Commander [etc] Quebec 9th December 1828

      Quebec, 1828. . ORIGINAL EARLY 19th EARLY COURT MARTIAL DOCUMENTS IN CANADA RARE[8] Eight foolscap pages, secretarial; first and last leaves detached; old stab sewing holes. Old folds; browning to edges, short tears along folds. Signed 'C Nicol... President', by the Judge Advocate and 'Approved James Kempt Com'r of the Forces.'Jonathan Jackson 66th Regiment accused of desertion and loss of Regimental clothing with values given for items. Jackson pleaded guilty with certain exceptions. Verbatim report of questions to Sergeant Patrick Hogan regarding loss of kit followed by similar reporting of interrogation of Peter Greengrass [?] 'Inhabitant of the neighbourhood of Quebec' who took Jackson in late at night and the following morning was asked by him for directions to Three Rivers but 'I told him the best road was to stay in my house as he was a Deserter' before handing him over the the guard. Jackson found guilty, deprived of benefits, 'marked with the letter D pointed out in the Marking Act and further to be placed under stoppages not exceeding half his Pay'.General Sir James Kempt, GCB was a British Army officer, who served in the Netherlands, Egypt, Italy, the Peninsula, and British North America during the Napoleonic Wars. He famously led a British brigade at the Battle of Waterloo and later became Governor General of Canada. After the first abdication of Napoleon Bonaparte, Kempt was transferred once again (Kempt was quartermaster general in Canada from 1807 to 1811) to North America, where the Anglo-American War of 1812 was still being fought. In 1814 Kempt commanded a brigade which was intended to attack the vital American post of Sackets Harbor. Kempt was Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia 1820-1828 and Governor General of British North America 1828-1830. Kempt himself was universally liked and respected, being a man, Joseph Howe noted approvingly, who "had a passion for road making and pretty women." One of his aides-de-camp later recalled that "society, by the force of his example, was the most agreeable thing imaginable," but he was "perfectly astonished" by Kempt's abilities as a colonial administrator.

        Lowber's Map of the Hudson River

      New York:: Wm. A. Mercein, No. 240 Pearl-Street,. Ca. 1828.. This map dates from the period between 1828 and 1835, based on the name Dr. David Hosack, which appears in the list "Mansion Houses between Lower Red-Hook and Hyde Park". Hosack bought Hyde Park in 1828 and it was sold in 1835 at his death. The text below the list states, "Hyde Park is one of the most pleasant villages on this river. It received its name from Dr. Bard's seat, now the residence of Dr. Hosack in this vicinity". Dr. Hosack taught at the medical school at Columbia University, and later left to establish the first medical school in New Jersey, at Rutgers. There is also a reference in the text to Sing Sing as the "new State Prison lately erected here"; Sing Sing was built in 1826. The entire text column on the right, pertaining to the east bank of the Hudson, is dominated by the lists of mansion houses and their owners, starting with houses between Greenbush and Castleton, and ending with the list of owners of mansions between Yonkers and Fort Washington. "West Point . The United States Military Academy was established here 1802, and is supported by the general Government There are at present 209 cadets at this place, under the superintendance of Lieut. Col. Thayer." Thayer served as superintendent at West Point from 1817 to 1833 when he resigned due to a disagreement with President Andrew Jackson. Tall map of the Hudson River and adjacent countryside, from the city of Albany in the north to Jersey City and City of New York in the south, with text in single column to left and right of the map. Important sites are listed in the text, including descriptions of cities, and villages, with an emphasis on "Mansion Houses". Laid down on heavier stock, with three original horizontal and one vertical fold. Very slight loss at intersection of horizontal with vertical fold, mostly in places not illustrated (the white spaces) 12 1/4 x 19 1/4" with margins. Possibly from a Hudson River guide, but there is no reference to this in OCLC. OCLC records editions for 1828 (OCLC: 45116808, 'An Improved Map of the Hudson River') & 1850 (OCLC: 793033811, 'Lowber's map of Hudson River').

        Broadside. Begins: Proclama. Simon Bolivar libertador presidente de Colombia & & &. A los pueblos del sur. Ciudadanos y soldados! La pefidia del gobierno del Peru ha pasado todos los limites

      Bogot?: No publisher/printer Folio (31.3 cm; 12.25"). [1] p.. 1828 The Liberator" condemns the actions — the "limitless perfidy" — of the government of Peru and announces the beginning of the first international war on South American soil. This pitted Peru against Gran Colombia and was an attempted land grab by Peru, wanting to wrench Bolivia from orbit of Gran Colombia. Greatly displeased with Peru's invasion of the nation named after him, in which he had been the first president, and which was guarded by forces from the Colombia of which he was presently president, Bolivar in this proclamation of 3 July mobilized his army.Coincidentally, and unknown to him, also on 3 July, Peru officially declared war on Gran Colombia.=> Searches of NUC, WorldCat, CCILA, and COPAC fail to locate any copies. Tattered at the edges with tears and small pieces of paper missing; old repairs on the verso where a fold tear and another exist; small stains to upper margin, with light age-toning and a very little foxing. Housed in a quarter red morocco clamshell case. Very good.
