        Poems

      Lambeth: Printed (For Private Distribution Only) at the Author's Private Press, 1829 - Small 8vo, contemporary black morocco, skillfully rebacked, gilt decorations and lettering, a.e.g. Frontis portrait after a portrait by R. Reading. Bound in before the portrait is a ten-page manuscript of Monceieff's poem "An Allegory," signed and dated September 20, 1845. ? A collection of about 100 poems in several forms by the playwright, theatre manager, miscellaneous writer and apparently occasional printer, as well. Moncrieff (1794-1857) was a self-described "hack," and a prolific one, who specialized in adapting novels for the stage and who made what little money he could in theatre and literary work of any kind. A few years after this volume was published, Moncrieff began struggling with progressive blindness. Poems contains sonnets, songs, ballads, epigrams and madrigals, mostly on the subject of unrequited love, something at which Moncrieff appears to have had a great deal of experience. ? At the foot of the final page of text is the imprint "W. T. Moncrieff, Typ. Saville House, Lamberth." ? Inscribed at the head of the title-page "To J. Miles Esqr / With the Author's best acknowledgements." The manuscript poems go into length about the aging process and loss of sight and is certainly in part autobiographical.

      Oblong 4to (17? x 25? cm. Stockholm: Stentryk af C. Muller, 1829. Oblong 4to (17? x 25? cm.), original printed gray wrappers, in marbled boards, gilt-decorated mottled calf spine and corners, giltlettered crimson morocco spine label, device giltstamped on front cover, marbled endpapers. Lithographic title-page with heraldic decoration and eight leaves, each bearing on recto a city view with caption in Swedish and French. Light foxing, but overall crisp and clean.[(?) First Edition. The artist of these small but fine views is identified on the front wrapper as "Fr. Werner" and on the title-page as "F. Werner"; it is pretty certain that Fredrik Emanuel Werner (1780-1832), the Swedish painter and lithographer of mythological and topographical scenes, is the guy. This work seems to be virtually unrecorded, at least outside of Scandinavia where the National Library of Sweden lists one copy identical in collation to this copy. The British Museum Catalogue does list an Utsiger of Stockholm utaf F. Werner of the same date, with color plates but no letterpress. The present lithographs include various views of the city, usually from the water.

        First Burma War. Manuscript Letters Concerning the East India Company's Planning for a Medal in Gold and Silver.

      East India Company & Royal Mint, London 1829 - East India Company Medal for the First Burma War. Two interesting letters concerning the planning of this medal which give some insight into the relationship between the Company and the Royal Mint. The first letter, which is marked "Copy" top left and dated East India House 12 March 1829, is written by two Directors of the East India Company, William Astell [who had been a Director since 1800] and John Loch [who was to become Deputy Chairman] and is addressed to John Charles Herries [1778-1853, Master of the Mint 1828-30]. It suggests that the Directors wish to have a medal struck for issue to the Native Troops who were engaged in the Burma War. They anticipate needing 765 in gold and 33,264 in silver. The standard reference book suggests that rather smaller numbers [750 & 24,000 were actually issued]. This letter is written in a secretarial hand on a the first side of a bifolium of paper watermarked J Green 1828. The second letter is written in his own hand and signed "Jas W Morrison" to the Master of the Mint on a smaller sheet of folded writing paper dated Mint Office 13 March 1829 and after a discussion of the work being done on an ingot for another client Morrison talks about the copy of the letter from The Company which he is enclosing and pointing out that the usual course is for the request to go through the Secretary of State.

        Geografische statistichen Atlas einingen amerikanischen Staaten in 45 Plattern von geografischen Institute en Weimar

      Weimar: geografischen Institute en Weimar, 1829. Folio. (21 1/2 x 13 3/4 inches). Mounted on guards throughout. 45 double-page hand-coloured engraved maps, each surrounded by letterpress text, without title as issued. Expertly bound to style in speckled half calf over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, spine in six compartments with wide semi-raised bands, the band flanked by gilt roll tooling A very rare German composite atlas of America: a complete set including several important early maps of the United States From 1824 to 1829, C. F. Wieland was engaged in creating a series of maps of America for the Geographical Institute of Weimar. According to Phillips, the maps were "published separately," but were occasionally collected and bound as a composite atlas. No general title page was ever issued but these rare composites are now universally known by the title given above. Very few have the same collation, and even fewer have the 45 maps that, according to Phillips, constitute a complete set. The present atlas is exceptional in that it contains this maximum number: by way of comparison, the Library of Congress has an example with thirty maps. The maps are frequently described as copies of Jean-Alexandre Buchon's 1825 French language versions of the maps from Carey & Lea's American Atlas (Philadelphia, 1822). However, as production began as early as 1824, we can assume that the Philadelphia edition was the true inspiration. Like its predecessors, each map is accompanied by detailed text explaining geographical and political aspects of the jurisdiction featured. A large number of the maps are original productions that are distinct improvements on both Carey & Lea's and Buchon's maps. These include the maps of Arkansas Territory, Michigan Territory, Florida, Missouri & Oregon Territories, Canada and the Polar Regions. Several of these have no parallel in the atlases of Carey & Lea or Buchon. Twenty-eight of the maps focus solely on locations within the United States of America. The list of maps in this atlas includes: 1. Vermont, based on Carey & Lea 2. Tennessee, based on Carey & Lea 3. Arkansas Territory, this rare map is one of the first depicting Arkansas alone. Carey & Lea and Buchon had included a map of Arkansas Territory, based on Stephen Long's famous map. However, that map extended north to Canada and west to the Rocky Mountains, while this map focuses exclusively on Arkansas and neighboring Oklahoma. Arkansas is here divided into ten counties. The few existing towns are almost all located along the Arkansas River. 4. North Carolina, based on Carey & Lea 5. Pennsylvania, based on Carey & Lea 6. Ohio, based on Carey & Lea 7. Florida, a rare early map of the State of Florida. It is one of the finest maps in the atlas, and an entirely new map, with the coastline and interior detail for Florida completely redrawn. While Buchon had shown Florida divided into just two counties, this map shows seven. Among the additions is the new city of Jacksonville. Tampa Bay, which was called "Espiritu Santo" by Buchon is here named "Espiritu Santo oder Tampa Bay." The Florida Keys have been entirely redrawn, and there are many new roads in northern Florida. 8. Illinois, based on Carey & Lea, an early map that shows the northern two thirds of the state to be largely uninhabited. 9. New Hampshire, based on Carey & Lea 10. New Jersey, based on Carey & Lea 11. Indiana, based on Carey & Lea, an early map that shows the central and northern parts of the state to be largely uninhabited. 12. Kentucky, based on Carey & Lea 13. New York, based on Carey & Lea 14. Mississippi, based on Carey & Lea, still shows the northern two-thirds of the state to be inhabited by the Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians. 15. Maryland, based on Carey & Lea 16. Michigan & Northwest Territory, an entirely new map, as the corresponding map in the Buchon atlas focused only on Michigan. This map extends westward to include present-day Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota, the "Northwest Territory," a vast and largely uninhabited realm extending to the Mississippi River and up to the Canadian border. The contour of Lake Michigan is more accurately drawn, and ten counties now appear in the lower peninsula of Michigan. Unlike Buchon's, this map shows the upper peninsula attached to the Northwest Territory. 17. Massachusetts, after Carey & Lea, but with different topography 18. Georgia, based on Carey & Lea, showing the northwestern portion of the state still occupied by the Cherokee Indians before their expulsion in 1828 by President Jackson. 19. Maine, based on Carey & Lea, an early map of this state that was admitted into the Union in 1820, is shown with exaggerated boundaries extending north of the St. John River, representing the extreme American claims in the unresolved boundary dispute with Great Britain. 20. Missouri, based on Carey & Lea, an early map that shows the western Ozark portion of the state to still be inhabited by the Osage Indians. 21. Delaware, based on Carey & Lea 22. South Carolina, based on Carey & Lea 23. Rhode Island, based on Carey & Lea 24. Virginia, closely adapted from the corresponding map in Buchon's atlas, shows what later became West Virginia as an integral part of the state. 25. District of Columbia, closely adapted from the map in Buchon's atlas, shows the District as complete, including Alexandria, which was not returned to Virginia until 1839. 26. Missouri and Oregon Territories, a rare early map of the American northwest. The map shows the newly formed territories of Oregon and Missouri, which occupied the watersheds of the Columbia and Missouri Rivers respectively, not in Carey & Lea. 27. British North America, is a general map of Canada, and an entirely different map than those that appeared in the atlases of Carey & Lea and Buchon. While those maps had concentrated on eastern Canada, this example extends all the way to the Pacific, with an abundance of new detail and information for western Canada and the Arctic regions. American territory extends northward so that it includes the entire watershed of the upper Columbia River. 28. The Northern Polar Regions, no map of the subject appeared in Carey & Lea's or Buchon's atlases, this map shows the northernmost regions and the central Arctic Archipelago to be totally unexplored. 29. Alabama, based on Carey & Lea 30. Connecticut, based on Carey & Lea 31. Windward Islands, depicting the chain of islands from Puerto Rico to Grenada, not in Carey & Lea. 32. Leeward Islands, shows the islands off the coast of Venezuela from Aruba to Trinidad, (not in Carey & Lea, who had a different interpretation of the definition of the "Leeward Islands") 33. Chile, shows a country much smaller than the modern Chile, before the settlement of its Patagonian territories and the conquest of its northern provinces, similar to Carey & Lea, but with different topography. 34. Brazil, not in Carey & Lea 35. Colombia, is shown as a unified state embracing Colombia, Equador and Venezuela, similar to Carey & Lea, but with different topography. 36. Cuba & The Bahamas, similar to Carey & Lea, but here with the Cuban provinces outlined. 37. Guatemala, is shown as a unified state embracing all of the central American countries north of Panama, not in Carey & Lea 38. Haiti, is depicted with the entire island of Hispaniola, similar to Carey & Lea, but with different topography. 39. Jamaica, similar to Carey & Lea, but with different topography. 40. Peru, similar to Carey & Lea, but with different topography. 41. Patagonia, an entirely new map, as no map of Patagonia appeared in Carey & Lea's or Buchon's atlases. 42. La Plata, a new map depicts the regions within the basin of the River Plate, not in Carey & Lea 43. United Provinces of South America, map depicts northern Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia, when they were briefly united into one nation after their collective independence, similar to Carey & Lea, but with different topography. 44. Guyana, not in Carey & Lea 45. Mexico, includes the states of New Mexico and Texas, based on Carey & Lea.

        WOODBRIDGE'S SCHOOL ATLAS, TO ACCOMPANY THE RUDIMENTS OF GEOGRAPHY

      Hartford, 1829. Original printed wrappers, stitched as issued. Wrappers worn at extremities, some light dampstaining to front cover. Several maps loose; lightly foxed. Contemporary hand coloring of all but one map. Near fine. A very nice copy of the atlas meant to accompany Woodbridge's RUDIMENTS OF GEOGRAPHY. First published in 1821, RUDIMENTS was one of the very first American geography textbooks. Woodbridge, a New England educator, taught geography at Thomas H. Gallaudet's American Asylum for the Deaf and Dumb at Hartford from 1817-1820. After spending eight months in Europe, he returned to Hartford in 1821, determined to address the lack of suitable geography textbooks. His work in the instruction of geography was a key contribution to the advancement of the American education system. Quite unusual in such good condition in the original wrappers.

        Reflections on the Present State of British India

      London: Hurst, Chance, and Co.,, 1829. Octavo. Original red combed cloth, paper label to the spine, panels in blind incorporating elaborate arabesques to both boards. A little rubbed and soiled, spine a touch sunned, front pastedown slightly marked by the removal of a bookplate, inked accession stamp verso of the title and once in the margins of the text, light browning, else very good. First and only edition. Uncommon, just 10 copies on COPAC. A contribution to the debate on the governance of India, from which the arch-opponent of the EIC, and promoter of colonial self-rule, James Silk Buckingham extracted two whole chapters for publication in his journal The Oriental Herald and Journal of General Literature, describing the book as offering a "picture drawn by a carefully discriminating, as well as an able hand … full of such details as must satisfy the most scrupulous of the conscientious care with which the information has been collected, compared, and revised. It is not an injured person or an inflammatory writer who says all this; but a witness who gives abundant evidence of his calmness as well as of his knowledge of the subject … we strongly recommend this work as one of the best that has been published on India for a very long period" (Vol. XX, Jan.-arch, 1829, p.112). He also draws attention to the lengthy chapter "On the Danger to which British India is exposed from Russian Invasion" which represents a very early warning of the first stirrings of the Great Game, believing that "many of our readers will be gratified by the opportunity of perusing the Reflections of this able writer on the dangers to which our own magnificent Asiatic Empire may perhaps ere long be exposed to from the all-grasping ambition of Russia; and few, who give due attention to the following pages, will venture to maintain that such dangers are altogether imaginary" (p.269). The author served in the army in India from 1806 when he was posted lieutenant in the 17th Native Infantry, until his death at Calcutta in 1841, during that time holding a number of significant administrative positions including Accountant to the Military Board, 1830-5, and Judge Advocate General, 1835-41. Hodson notes Young's publication of "An Enquiry into the Expediency of applying the Principles of Colonial Policy to the Government of India" (Calcutta, 1822), and "An Essay on the Mercantile Theory of Wealth" (1832), but not the present work (Hodson, List of the Officers of the Bengal Army). Published in the same year as de Lacy Evans's On the Designs of Russia, and at a time when the author believed that Russian successes in the current war with the Ottoman Empire had put their army "in full march upon Teheran", this is a significant, and largely overlooked premonishment of the Great Game.

      London: Printed by Joseph Mallet, 1829. Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good. vii, 251 pages, plus plates and tables, as follows: six colored plates (four riflemen presenting and two showing men's form superimposed over target practice), an engraved dedication (partly colored); an engraved plate showing the accuracy of the Baker rifle in 1800 and 1803; and one of bullet moulds; there is also a six-page engraved table of the weight of lead balls of various diameters. Ezekiel Baker was a master gunsmith who developed the Baker rifle, which was adopted by the British Army and used, in various models, for more than 30 years. This tenth edition of Baker's work on rifles was published near the end of the gun's military use, in the 1830s. The book serves as a combination instruction manual and sales tool, documenting improvements made to the rifle over time. Topics covered include loading, taking aim, judging distance, proving barrels, percussion locks, casting balls, and fowling pieces. While the book ultimately went through eleven editions, it is not especially common, particularly in nice condition. Tenth edition. An attractive copy in an early 20th-century binding of half-calf over marbled paper; previous owner's bookplate on front pastedown. Half-title lacking. A few plates have been trimmed close, affecting the final line of text. One leaf of the engraved table with a half-inch tear. This copy has a leaf bound in at the front describing improvements to the rifle since this edition was published, and a humorous plate showing three rifles (not issued with the book, but with similar coloring): 'In this true line of aim, I kill and get fame...'. Six lines of printed doggerel about hunting affixed to lower margin of page opposite added plate. Generally very good.

        Zwei Jahre in Neu Südwales.

      Hartmann, Leipzig 1829 - Octavo, original half roan. A very good copy of the uncommon German translation of Cunningham's valuable account of the colony, considered an Australian classic: 'an acute observer and possessed a pleasant literary style, so that Two Years in New South Wales remains the best as well as the fullest picture of the colony in the 1820s' (ADB). The German translation and additional notes are by A. Kaiser.Cunningham made four voyages to New South Wales as surgeon-superintendent of convict ships and had taken up land on the Hunter River in 1825 before writing this most important account of the evolving and distinctive characteristics of the Australian people. His observations on the unique Australian vocabulary and accent, as well as on the physical characteristics of the Australian-born youth is the classic statement of the early colonial era.Ferguson originally knew the National Library copy only, but added the Mitchell and the then Public Library of Victoria to his census. As the title-page notes, the translation was based on the second revised edition of the original work (London, 1827). The paper shows some characteristic browning; original half roan, worn with repairs at the corners.
