        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').

        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.

        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.

        Windgekrümmte Bäume in Subiaco

      1828. Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts bezeichnet, datiert und monogrammiert: "Subiaco d. 27 Octbr 1828. FP.", verso unbekannter Sammlungsstempel (Lugt 2239b), 23,1 x 29,6 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Auf Vermittlung seines Weimarer Lehrers Heinrich Meier, in dessen Zeichenklasse Friedrich Preller zwischen 1818 und 1821 studierte, lernte der junge Künstler Johann Wolfgang Goethe kennen. Dieser ließ ihn nicht nur "seine Wolkenzeichnungen ins Reine bringen [ ]"1, sondern wurde zu einem Förderer und Mentor des Malers. Er vermittelte ihm Reisestipendien des Großherzogs Carl August, so dass Preller seine Studien zunächst in Antwerpen fortsetzen und sich von 1826 bis 1831 in Oberitalien und Rom aufhalten konnte, wo er sich dem Kreis um Joseph Anton Koch anschloss. In der nahe Roms gelegenen Kleinstadt Subiaco entstand auch die vorliegende Zeichnung. Zuallererst fällt die fließende Bewegung ins Auge, mit der sich der Baum auf dem Blatt entfaltet. Wie selbstverständlich überwölbt der nur in Umrissen angedeutete Stamm den Bildraum und setzt sich in geschmeidigen Ästen mit reichem Blattwerk fort. Diese Bewegung findet ihre Fortsetzung in den sich umschlingenden schmalen Stämmen am linken Blattrand. Die vitale Dynamik des nach rechts gewölbten Baumes lässt die Skizze trotz des nicht ausgefüllten Bildraumes als vollendet erscheinen. Auch in anderen Zeichnungen dieser Zeit nimmt sich Preller die Freiheit, bestimmte Objekte nur im Umriss anzulegen, wie die ebenfalls Ende der 1820er Jahre entstandene Federzeichnung Die Serpentara bei Olevano des Cleveland Museums of Art oder die im Frankfurter Städelmuseum befindliche Skizze Auf der Straße nach Civitella von 1830 zeigen. Die fließende Entfaltung naturhafter Objekte kennzeichnet viele Arbeiten dieser Zeit. Wie in der Zeichnung Italienische Küstenlandschaft mit Gewitter anschaulich wird, die zwischen 1828 und 1831 entstand und sich heute in der National Gallery in Washington befindet, bemüht sich der junge Künstler überdies, einzelne Naturerscheinungen in die sie umgebende landschaftliche Situation einzubinden. Die variierenden Darstellungsformen lassen an eine von Johann Peter Eckermann 1826 notierte Begebenheit denken, wonach Goethe dem jungen Preller anlässlich seiner ersten Abreise nach Italien nahegelegt habe, die Abbildung einzelner Objekte zugunsten von Landschaftsszenen aufzugeben: "Als Reisesegen, sagte Goethe, habe ich ihm geraten, sich nicht verwirren zu lassen, sich besonders an Poussin und Claude Lorrain zu halten [ ] Sodann war noch Eins, worauf ich ihn aufmerksam gemacht. Ich habe bisher viele Studien nach der Natur von ihm gesehen. Sie waren vortrefflich und mit Energie und Leben aufgefasst; aber es waren Alles nur Einzelheiten, womit später bei eigenen Erfindungen wenig zu machen ist. Ich habe ihm nun geraten, künftig in der Natur nie einen einzelnen Gegenstand allein herauszuzeichnen [ ]."3 Vor diesem Hintergrund erscheint unsere 1828 entstandene Skizze wie eine spielerische, freie Übung des jungen Künstlers, den Formen der Natur nachzuspüren, ohne sie sogleich nach jenen ästhetischen Konventionen anzulegen, die sein Mentor vorgeschlagen hatte.

        Op. 100]. Elverhöi Skuespil i fem Acter. [Piano-vocal score].

      C.C. Lose [1828], København - First Edition. Fog p. 110. Kuhlau is considered, together with C.E.F. Weyse, as the foremost representative of the late Classical and early Romantic periods in Denmark. Elverhöi (The Elf Hill), incidental music to Heiberg's Romantic national play Elverhøj, was first performed in Copenhagen on November 6, 1828 at the King's Theatre. "Still more Romantic in character [than Kuhlau's music to C.J. Boye's Romantic play William Shakespeare] is his music to Elverhøj, Kuhlau's most successful work and the most often performed play in the Danish repertory. It is largely based on old Danish and Swedish folktunes skilfully arranged to fit the dramatic situations, above all the tune Kong Christian stod ved højen mast (‘King Christian [IV] stood by the lofty mast’), which became the Danish national anthem." Gorm Busk in Grove online Oblong folio. Original publisher's dark grey wrappers.

        The Crown Calendar for the Lincolnshire Lent Assizes, Holden at the Castle of Lincoln, in and for the County of Lincoln, on Saturday the Eighth Day of March, 1828, before the Right Honourable Sir William Alexander, Knight.Charles Winn, Esq. Sheriff

      J. W. Drury, Lincoln 1828 - Broadside measuring 370 x 240 mm., some foxing, small professional paper repair to lower blank margin (text unaffected) very good condition. A grim day at the courts. Calendar for the Lincoln assizes listing the names, age, origin and alleged crimes of some 37 men and women due to face trial.Although the sentences are not recorded, as this calendar was prepared in anticipation of the assizes in session for the 8 March 1828, many of those listed would have been transported to New South Wales or met their end at the gallows.The calendar makes sobering reading - in addition to the usual charges of larceny, deceit and housebreaking, it lists an unusually high proportion of violent crimes including robbery with assault and highway robbery, as well as 'carnal knowledge by force' (including one such grievous felony against a minor). We also learn of a most unusual case, that of one David Kemp, a farmers servant aged 24 years, here charged with having 'committed beastiality (sic) with a mare'.

        A letter to Sir Walter Scott, Bart., exposing certain fundamental errors in his late essay on planting, and containing observations on the pruning and thinning of woods, and maxims for profitable planting [WITH] A letter to Sir Henry Steuart, Bart., on the improvement in the quality of timber, to be effected by the high cultivation and quick growth of forest-trees, in reply to certain passages in his "Planter's guide".

      Printed by James Shalders Holt and sold by Longman London. & 1829 1828 - First editions. 2 works in two volumes, inscribed on each title to the Duke of Devonshire from the author, 123pp. & [ii], 133pp., modern marbled boards, full-length morocco spine labels. Withers owned and leased two plantations near Holt, Norfolk, and published several treatises on the planting and maintaining of forest plantations. He objected to Scott's essays on planting in the Quarterly Review, accusing him of advocating the "cheap, hole-digging, short-sighted Scotch system, which is calculated to bring upon those who adopt it only loss and dissapointment." Scott had proposed a collection in book form of his essays on planting and gardening , but late in 1828, perhaps as a result of Withers' criticism, withdrew the proposal (see Todd & Bowden 222A). The second work replies to Steuarts comments on the disagreement between Scott and Withers. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Present here are eleven issues: 1 (29 January 1828), 20 ( 27 March 1828), 55 (1 July 1828), 58 (8 July 1828), 59 (10 July 1858) , 86 (2 October 1828), 87 (7 October 1828), 103 (2 December 1828), 130 (5 March 1829), 131 (12 March 1829), 133 (14 March 1829). Included are national and international news, politics, and coverage of the war with Gran Colombia; the sentencing of Gen. Santander for the attempted assassination of Simon Bolivar is announced; and => one issue is oversized. Disbound; worming, especially in the inner margins but also into text costing letters but not words. Some stray stains, bug spotting, light foxing; paper good.

        System des Pandekten-Rechts.

      Jena, Druck und Verlag von Friedrich Mauke, 1828.. 7., verbess. Ausgabe. 2 Bde. 8vo. XVI, 420; XVI, 463 S. Zeitgenössische Pappbände mit geprägten roten Rückenschildern und schönem Rotschnitt.. Thibaut (1772-1840) legte mit seinem Pandektenlehrbuch die erste erfolgreiche nach eigenem System geordnete und in deutsche Sprache geschriebene Darstellung des Pandektenrechts vor. Insgesamt steht er in seiner Arbeit dem 18. Jahrhundert noch nahe, was an dem Einschluß von einzelnen Teilen des öffentlichen Rechts deutlich wird. Im allgemeinen Teil wird zunächst die Lehre von den Rechtsquellen, insbesondere von den Gesetzen, dann von Rechten und Verbindlichkeiten, die Rechtssubjekte und die Gegenstände der Rechte erörtert sowie deren Besitz behandelt. Im besonderen Teil folgen dann die Grundzüge des öffentlichen Rechts und des Familienrechts sowie das Privatrecht, welches die dinglichen Rechte, das Erbrecht, die besonderen Obligationenrechte und die Beendigung der Rechte behandelt.

        Album Amicorum

      Edinburgh, 1828. Album amicorum containing 11 drawings, three of which are in colour, and 36 pages of manuscript inscriptions. 8vo. Original condition, half calf over marbled boards, tooled spine, rose marbled endpapers. Significant wear to boards, otherwise very good condition, internally bright, a pleasing and entertaining volume. Uniquely from the female perspective in the early years of the Scottish emigration period, and nearing the end of the Industrial Revolution, these very personal jottings provide firsthand insight into culture, family, entertainment, politics, religion, and other matters either pressing or curious in nineteenth century Scotland, a time of transformation. Beautiful illustrations of Scottish scenes include elaborate formal costume, a sketch of the Water of Leith with a view of Cairns House and Cairns Castle in the distance, and the wild violet petunia. Speaking to interests abroad we find a vibrant coloured ink illustration of exotic birds, a charming nautical scene, and a sketch of the Roman temple ruins in the ancient Aramaic city of Palmyra in central Syria. Especially noteworthy is a lovely watercolour depiction of traditional Albanian costume as seen in southern Italy, titled in manuscript "Costume del Paese di Carafa, Provincia di Catanzaro Calabria Ultra, Nel Regno di Napoli." As well as some cleverly penned personal reflections, inscriptions include verses from William Shakespeare, Washington Irving, Sir Walter Raleigh, Lord Byron's Hebrew Melodies, Scottish poet James Thomson's "Castle of Indolence", and an interest chronology of Napoleon Bonaparte's career.The album amicorum, or book of friends, a precursor to modern-day autograph books, originated in German and Dutch linguistic regions (possibly originating in Wittenberg) in the middle of the sixteenth century. By the end of the century, they were common throughout Germany among students and scholars. Academics tended to retain the books for many years and gather the correspondence of fellow intellectuals with whom they associated; therefore the books began to function not only as sentimental artifacts, but also as a crude form of scholarly credentials, a form of the modern "list of references". In the 18th century they came into use among members of the burgeoning middle class. This new wave of autograph curators included women as well as men. Professors and fellow students made contributions to these albums, including inscriptions and illustrations, which were often by significant scholars or professional artists of the time. A typical volume began with a formal greeting to the album's owner or, in the case of English volumes, an address to its contributors, sometimes also including a heraldic shield or emblematic illustration by the signator. Contributions usually contained drawings, personal messages, and small pieces of verse. Inscriptions were often a few pages in length. Artistic autographers sketched full-page drawings, while less conventional entries included engravings or mementos such as embroidery, paper silhouettes, locks of hair, or pressed flowers. Water of Leith is the main river flowing through Edinburgh to the port of Leith where it flows into the sea via the Firth of Forth. . Very Good.

        Spy Unmasked or, Memoirs of Enoch Crosby, Alias Harvey Birch, the Hero of Mr. Cooper's Tale of Neutral Ground: Being an Authentic Account of the Secret Services Which He Rendered His Country during the Revolutionary War... [with] a copy reprinted by the Fishkill Weekly Times, 1886

      New York:: J. & J. Harper ,. 1828; 1886.. First edition. Hardcover. Good + condition. A first edition,1828, with the printers' sheets to the scarce 1886 reprint by the Fishkill Weekly Times. With a list of publications by O.A. Roorbach, Charleston, South Carolina, author of "Bibliotheca Americana : Catalogue of American Publications ... 1820-1861." The story of America's first double agent. Enoch Crosby (1750 - 1835), was an American soldier in the Continental Army and spy (recruited by John Jay) who posed as a British spy working for General Howe, working mostly in Westchester County New York, which at the time was "neutral ground" between the colonial forces further north and the British controlled New York City. On four separate occasions Crosby successfully infiltrated the British side, was captured, and escaped. It is thought that the character Harvey Birch in James Fenimore Cooper's 'The Spy', was based upon Crosby's life. Enoch Crosby's early years were spent in Putnam County, in the town of Southeast; the Enoch Crosby house (sometimes called Maple Hill Farm or Spy Hill Farm) still stands near the reservoir. 8vo, frontis portrait, xvi, [17]-206, ads [2], 4 pl., one map, uncut. Original quarter cloth and brown paper covered boards, paper label at spine. Previous owner name "Benjamin Matheson" contemporary with the issuance of the book at front board and at title page.

Roorbach was the author of "Bibliotheca Americana : Catalogue of American Publications ... 1820- 1861." Some light scattered foxing, bumped, and extremes rubbed, original spine laid down.

        The Crown Calendar for the Lincolnshire Lent Assizes, Holden at the Castle of Lincoln, in and for the County of Lincoln, on Saturday the Eighth Day of March, 1828, before the Right Honourable Sir William Alexander, Knight...Charles Winn, Esq. Sheriff

      Lincoln: J. W. Drury, 1828. Broadside measuring 370 x 240 mm., some foxing, small professional paper repair to lower blank margin (text unaffected) very good condition. A grim day at the courts. Calendar for the Lincoln assizes listing the names, age, origin and alleged crimes of some 37 men and women due to face trial. Although the sentences are not recorded, as this calendar was prepared in anticipation of the assizes in session for the 8 March 1828, many of those listed would have been transported to New South Wales or met their end at the gallows. The calendar makes sobering reading - in addition to the usual charges of larceny, deceit and housebreaking, it lists an unusually high proportion of violent crimes including robbery with assault and highway robbery, as well as 'carnal knowledge by force' (including one such grievous felony against a minor). We also learn of a most unusual case, that of one David Kemp, a farmers servant aged 24 years, here charged with having 'committed beastiality (sic) with a mare'.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations

      Edinburgh: for Adam Black and William Tait; and Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green, London,, 1828. With a Life of the Author, an Introductory Discourse, Notes, and Supplemental Dissertations by J. R. McCulloch. 4 volumes, octavo. Contemporary green half calf, comb-marbled boards, flat spines gilt-ruled in compartments, brown morocco labels, front and bottom edges untrimmed. Frontispiece, 2 plates, all with tissue guards. Boards lightly scuffed and very slightly bowed, small tear to bottom of front joint on volumes one and three, volume four partly unopened, two bookplates to front pastedown of each volume, offsetting from frontispiece and plates to adjacent pages and from bookplates to front free endpapers of volumes two to four. An excellent set. Based on the 1786 edition. "[T]he most well-known of the early nineteenth century English editions of Wealth of Nations because [John Ramsay] McCulloch was a distinguished political economist in his own right" (Tribe). In his Editorial Preface, McCulloch states that his own notes, of which the most important are collected in the final volume, are intended to "alert the reader to the fallacy of some principles advocated by Smith" while taking into consideration recent developments in academia and in legislation. The armorial bookplate does not belong to the noted Scottish physician Alexander Henderson, who lived in Edinburgh for a time, but rather a namesake who was employed as the Surveyor of Edinburgh Post Office. His inscription to the front free endpaper of volume one reads: "The Index to the [?] edition of this work (the same I presumed as that published in 1786 under A. Smith's own eye) contains 2103 references. A. H." The more modest bookplate above belongs to Robert Hoe, an American bibliophile who died in 1909 and to whom the copy would have passed at a later date. The front free endpaper has been spared offsetting from the bookplates by a loosely inserted issue of The Scots Times, which is dated February 23 1828 and contains a robust review of the present work.

        History of the War in the Peninsula

      London: John Murray; Thomas & William Boone,, 1828?-40. and in the South of France, from the year 1807 to the Year 1814 … 6 volumes, octavo (216 × 134 mm) Contemporary dark green half skiver, matching sand-grained cloth, title gilt direct to the spine, attractively panelled compartments, single gilt rule to spine and corner edges, edges and endpapers marbled. 55 engraved battle plans. A little rubbed at the extremities, front joint of the first volume just started at the head, light browning, some foxing to the plans as usual, overall an attractive and well-preserved set. The first volume, and last two are firsts, II-IV are seconds. The first volume was published by John Murray, who did not exercise his option on the next three having made a loss, Napier therefore published the rest of the history through Boone having raised the money by subscriptions. The work certainly divided opinion, "Soult considered it 'perfect', Sir Robert Peel 'eloquent and faithful', the Spanish general Alava felt it too pro-French, and a British officer in India demanded satisfaction on his return for a 'most unfounded calumny' about his conduct at Barossa" (ODNB) As a result most volumes are prefixed with "justificatory pieces" in answer to Napier's critics, his controversy with Beresford over Albuera was particularly rancourous. Perhaps judgement is best left to the acknowledged master chronicler of the conflict, Sir Charles Oman, who described Napier's work as "magnificent (if somewhat prejudiced and biased)".

        The Siege of Carlaverock in the XXVIII Edward I. A.D.MCCC; With the Arms of the Earls, Barons, and Knights, who were Present on the Occasion; with a Translation, a History of the Castle, and Memoirs of the Personages Commemorated by the Poet

      London: J. B. Nichols and Son. 1828. First Edition. Hardcover. Full calf rebacked and recornered with five raised bands on spine, gilt titles in second compartment and the other compartments with blind tooled decoration, boards with gilt fillet border and blind tooled decoration, aeg, marbled endpapers with bookplate on front pastedown, tissue guarded coloured frontis, title page printed in red and black, text illustrated with the arms of the nobles present at the siege and these nicely hand coloured, internally clean and bright. The poem "Siege of Carlaverock" is the only contemporary record of the seige of that castle in July 1300. This account is thought to have been written by the Fransiscan, Walter of Exeter and is noteworthy for several reasons. Perhaps firstly because it provides contemporary desciptions of the appearance and equipment of a late 13th century army and the manner in which they set about besieging a castle. It also contains the accurate blazon of over 100 peers of the realm, here reproduced in colour. The book presents a history of the castle itself, followed by the poem, the original text with the translation on the facing page, with the last section made up of short biographies of the worthies mentioned in the poem. Carlaverock castle is a triangular moated castle in south west Scotland. The siege of the castle in 1300 eventually ended, when having held up the might of the English army for some considerable time, the garrison of just sixty men finally surrendered. , Folio , xxxii + 380 pp .
