Fulbeck [Fulbecke], William; T.H. Sterling
1829. Advice for Law Students Fulbeck(e), William [1560-1603]. Stirling, T.H. A Direction or Preparative to the Study of the Law: Wherein is Shewed, What Things Ought to be Observed and Used of Them That Are Addicted to the Study of the Law, And What, on the Contrary Part, Ought to be Eschewed and Avoided. London: Printed for J. and W.T. Clarke, Law Booksellers and Publishers, Portugal Street, Lincoln's Inn, 1829. [viii], 252 pp. Two folding tables. Octavo (7-1/4" x 4-1/4") Recent period-style quarter calf over cloth, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, speckled edges, endpapers renewed. Moderate toning to text, light foxing in places. An appealing copy. ,250. * Second edition. Fulbeck was a bencher at Gray's Inn. First published in 1600, his Direction or Preparative was intended as a vade mecum for aspiring law students. The first book of its kind, it offers a mix of practical information and advice on personal conduct. (For example, he advises students not to study at night "for when the stomach is full and stuffed with meat, the abundance of humours is carried to the head, where it sticketh for a time and layeth as it were a lump of lead upon the brain.") For the most part Fulbeck restricts his thoughts to rhetorical techniques, methods for preparing a case, recommended readings and other topics. Though often read for amusement, this treatise remains an incomparable guide to English legal education and the legal culture of the Inns of Court during the Elizabethan era.

DECATUR, Susan
Union Hotel [Washington?], March 11, 1829. "My dear General, I entreat you to send me a word of hope or comfort, for my situation is mortifying and distressing beyond all expression! After having been rear'd in affluence and cherish'd through life with the most unbounded affection, I now find myself overwhelm'd with desolation, and poverty staring me in the face!" Susan Decatur (c. 1776-1860) was the daughter of Luke Wheeler, mayor of Norfolk, Virginia, and wife of Stephen Decatur, United States naval officer who served during the War of 1812, garnering the title of America's first post-Revolutionary War hero. However, Decatur's career was cut short at the age of 41 when he was killed in a duel with competing officer James Barron, leaving his wife pensionless (her efforts to this end would not succeed until 1837). Decatur's correspondence with Andrew Jackson began sometime in the previous year, and has been described as "on terms of increasing intimacy and familiarity" by Tom Coens, curator of the Papers of Andrew Jackson. In the present letter, though opening with her own plight of near-destitution, the author's aim was to garner aid for her friend William G. Ridgley (ca. 1788-1861), the chief clerk of the Board of Navy Commissioners, whose overly-stretched household included his wife, eight children, an eldery mother, and three unmarried sisters. Not included here are two notes of recommendation originally accompanying this letter, from the Navy Commissioners and Francis S. Key, the distinguished D.C. lawyer and brother-in-law of Roger Taney, later Attorney General in J … [Click Below for Full Description]

James Macauley
Gould and Banks, 1829. The Natural, Statistical, and Civil History of the State of New York in Three Volumes Written by James Macauley, Published in 1829 Rare First edition This is a very rare set of books quickly nearing 200 years of age. Please examine photos for condition,feel free to ask additional questions. The front board and fly sheet of volume one are detached but intact, showing age appropriate to age. See sample pages as there is some browning on the pages, but no foxing to speak of. While the front cover on volume one is detached the books are still tightly bound with no sagging of the bindings. These books belonged to Giles Gilbert who built The Giles Gilbert Home in Michigan, a historic site. Giles Gilbert was born in Wyoming County, New York in 1840, the youngest of eight children born to Hiram and Maria Gilbert. He attended Genesee Conference Seminary and worked on his father's farm until the Civil War broke out, at which point he enlisted in the 17th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment. He served until 1863, after which he moved to Stanton and invested his savings in a mercantile business with Edwin K. Wood, another veteran of the 17th. The business soon became involved in lumbering, and eventually Gilbert bought out his partner in the lumbering operation, while Wood continued in the mercantile business. In 1868, Gilbert married Frances Smith; the couple had three children. In 1877, he built this house for his own use,[2] and lived there until 1882, when he moved to Mecosta, Michigan to continue lumbering. The three volumes are stamped with a purple home l … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original Zeichnung, 1829. um 1827; Bleistiftzeichnung, grau laviert, der Himmel blau aquarelliert; 27,4 x 38,6 cm; auf gelblichem, glattem Papier; am unteren Rand angerändert mit einem etwas hellerem, rauherem Papier; rückseitig mit Sammlerstempel von Fritz Hasselmann (Lugt 1012). -- Bisher unbekannte Zeichnung von Gustav Kraus. Prächtige Panorama-Ansicht von Eichstätt. Im Vordergrund mehrere Staffagefiguren, darunter ein Ziegenhirte mit seinem Hund und fünf Ziegen sowie eine Bauersfrau mit einem Heukorb auf dem Rücken. Kraus unternahm im Juni des Jahres 1827 eine Reise nach Schwaben, eine weitere im Jahre 1829. Vermutlich stammt die Zeichnung von seiner zweiten Reise. Im Jahre 1828 erschien eine Folge mit lithographischen Ansichten 22 bayerischer Städte, darunter auch Eichstätt. Für die vorliegende Zeichnung wählte Kraus jedoch eine andere Perspektive als in seiner Lithographie. Vermutlich entstand die Arbeit zeitlich kurz nach Kraus' Eichstätt Lithographie aus dem Jahre 1828. -- Eines der selteneren großformatigen Blätter von Kraus. -- leicht gebräunt, mit leichter Passepartout-Bräunung. -- Literatur: Christine Pressler - Gustav Kraus 1804-1852.

DECATUR, Susan
March 11, 1829, Union Hotel [Washington?]. "My dear General, I entreat you to send me a word of hope or comfort, for my situation is mortifying and distressing beyond all expression! After having been rear'd in affluence and cherish'd through life with the most unbounded affection, I now find myself overwhelm'd with desolation, and poverty staring me in the face!" Susan Decatur (c. 1776-1860) was the daughter of Luke Wheeler, mayor of Norfolk, Virginia, and wife of Stephen Decatur, United States naval officer who served during the War of 1812, garnering the title of America's first post-Revolutionary War hero. However, Decatur's career was cut short at the age of 41 when he was killed in a duel with competing officer James Barron, leaving his wife pensionless (her efforts to this end would not succeed until 1837). Decatur's correspondence with Andrew Jackson began sometime in the previous year, and has been described as "on terms of increasing intimacy and familiarity" by Tom Coens, curator of the Papers of Andrew Jackson. In the present letter, though opening with her own plight of near-destitution, the author's aim was to garner aid for her friend William G. Ridgley (ca. 1788-1861), the chief clerk of the Board of Navy Commissioners, whose overly-stretched household included his wife, eight children, an eldery mother, and three unmarried sisters. Not included here are two notes of recommendation originally accompanying this letter, from the Navy Commissioners and Francis S. Key, the distinguished D.C. lawyer and brother-in-law of Roger Taney, later Attorney General in Jac … [Click Below for Full Description]

Housed in a custom blue cloth solander box. Spines uniformly toned, creasing and small chips to spine ends and tips, a couple of small marks to wrappers and contents, small loss to rear cover of vol. VII; a very good set of this fragile publication. Text in Italian. With half-titles. First Torino edition, published by the Stamperia Alliana as volumes XXV to XXXI of their Raccolta di Viaggi series. The series also includes narratives of the voyages of Kruzenshtern, Chantreau, Arago, Ellis, and Cook. La Pérouse's account was originally published in French in 1797, the first edition published in Italian being the Milan edition of 1815, published as part of a series, Raccolta di Viaggi dopo quelli di Cook. A three volume Livorno edition was published in 1827, making this the third edition in Italian. "In addition to a detailed account of the expedition itself, these volumes contain invaluable scientific information, observations on the natives that were encountered, and a wealth of geographic and cartographic data. it is one of the finest narratives of maritime exploration ever written, and certainly deserves to hold a place of high honour among the great travel accounts of the 18th century" (Howell Anniversary Catalogue 72, Richard Reed's essay). The most significant results of La Pérouse's voyage are the details of "the peculiarities he observed in the natives of the North West coast of North America … [Click Below for Full Description]

[SPREGA, Ernesto].
[Vienna or Monaco, end of the nineteenth century], 1829. 10 illuminated miniatures on 5 vellum leaves (each leaf c. 145 × 108 mm), illuminated recto and verso in penwork, colours and liquid gold. In contemporary double-sided blue and gilt glazed frames (recent mounts). Superb examples of the late-nineteenth-century medievalist revival and specimens of the trade in painted miniatures imitating (innocently or not) the manuscript painting of the Middle Ages. These miniatures can been attributed to Ernesto Sprega (1829-1911), restorer of the Raphael frescoes in the Vatican (cf. Manuscript Illumination in the Modern Age, ed. S. Hindman et al., 2001, pp. 120-22). The borders and the frames of the miniatures are bravura imitations of ornate Italian models of the late fifteenth-century, drawing on the decorations and subjects of specific miniatures in the great Bible of Borso d'Este (Modena, Biblioteca Estense, MS 422-3). This large two-volume Bible remained in the royal library at Modena until 1859 when it was among the treasures taken by Duke Francesco V with him into exile in Vienna. It remained there until 1914. Sprega worked as a painter, illuminator and ceramicist. He made several superb copies of the illuminated initials of the choirbooks painted by Liberale da Verona in Siena for the Arundel Society, who reproduced them in a volume of engravings of 1862. He worked on the Raphael frescoes in the Vatican and from 1870he was based in Monaco, where he was director of the ceramics factory there.

1829. Newcastle. Edward Walker. 8vo. Frontispiece, 3 ff., 245 pp. Original cloth, rebacked, edges worn. Light browning and foxing spots, else an excellent example, uncut.- First edition. A fascinating account of a voyage through South America, and an important political mission from England to Argentina, Chile, Peru and Uruguay; first landing in Rio de Janeiro, from there they travelled to Montevideo, Buenos Aires, and then through Patagonia towards Chile and Peru; the party boarded H.M.S. Cambridge, one of the largest ships of the line. The author narrates his journey day by day, and narrates with considerable amount of details all he saw and did, especially focusing on his experiences, visual records, slavery and black population, buildings, costumes of the inhabitants, etc. The relevance given to recently-independent and emerging countries of Argentina, Chile, Peru and Uruguay by the English government is proven by the important ship sent for the mission; this was apparently the first ship of the line since Anson’s Centurian to enter the Pacific. “The town of Monte Video disappointed me a good deal; its population is said not to exceed 10 or 15,000, of which blacks form but a small part; the streets are ill paved, and the houses, to an English eye, appear mean and comfortless” (pp.18). The destination of the Cambridge to South America was to carry four consuls, Mr. Rowcroft to Lima, Mr. Nugent to Valparaiso, Mr Parish to Buenos Ayres and Mr. Hood to Montevideo.
