        A View of the Constitution of the United States

      1829. Used to Justify Secession Rawle, William [1759-1836]. A View of the Constitution of the United States of America. Philadelphia: Philip H. Nicklin, Law Bookseller, 1829. viii, [9]-349 pp. Octavo (8-3/4" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary sheep, rebacked in period style retaining lettering piece. Moderate rubbing and a few light scuffs to boards, corners bumped and worn. Moderate toning, occasional foxing and faint dampstaining. Early owner signature to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. A handsome copy of an important work. * Second edition. Rawle's treatise is one of the earliest works on the United States Constitution, and one of the most important. This text is significant also because it suggests that states have a right to secede from the Union. As Cohen observes, the popularity of this text, which was used at West Point and other schools throughout the country, "is generally considered to have influenced the leaders and supporters of the Confederacy, although in fact Rawle opposed secession."

        REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OF THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES, WITH WHICH THE SENATE CONCURRED, JANUARY 20, 1829. Messrs. Johnson, of Kentucky, Ellis, Tyler, Johnson, of Louisiana, and Silsbee, the Committee on Post Offices and Post Roads, to which had been referred various petitions remonstrating against the Transportation and Delivery of the Mails on the SABBATH, Report:-- [followed by 14 paragraphs of dense text printed in three columns, each separated by a thin rule].

      Baltimore (MD): Wm. Wooddy, printer, (1829). Broadside printed on silk (backed with linen), 51 1/2 x 40 cm. , employing several sizes and styles of type, the entire text and illustration enclosed within a wide ornamental border. The printer William Woody (ca.1788-1863) was active as a printer in Maryland from about 1817; he had served in the War of 1812 as a lieutenant in the Maryland militia (obituary in the Baltimore Daily Gazette, 26 August 1863). Not in Threads of History. Several other versions of this broadside exist; however, we have been unable to find another copy from this printer on either OCLC or in "American Imprints," and none mentioning the illustration of the mail coach. Some light fraying in left and right margins and upper right corner, not touching the decorative border, remains of old glue residue on verso along one side, just a touch of rubbing to border in two spots where the broadside was once folded, one pinhole size spot, affecting a letter or two of text. A bright clean example of a rare broadside, excellent for exhibition. Folded. (#6212) The subject of mail delivery on Sundays was hotly debated in Congress for nearly twenty years (1810-1830), as the post office handled and carried the mail seven days a week during this period. Petitions by various religious groups over these years requested that such work on Sundays be terminated. The text of this Senate report is a distillation of the controversy, and clearly takes the committee's opinion that a Congressional act halting mail delivery on the Sabbath, for religious reasons, would be contrary to the principles of the Constitution. "We are aware that a variety of sentiment exists among the good citizens of this nation, on the subject of the Sabbath day, and our government is designed for the protection of one as much as for another. The Jews, who, in this country are as free as Christians, and entitled to the same protection for the laws, derive their obligation to keep the Sabbath day [on Saturday] … with these different views, the committee are of the opinion that Congress cannot interfere … our government is a civil, and not a religious institution … the transportation of the mail on the first day of the week, it is believed, does not interfere with the rights of conscience. The petitioners for its discontinuance appear to be actuated by a religious zeal which may be commendable, if confined to its proper sphere; but they assume a position better suited to an ecclesiastical than to a civil institution. They appear, in many instances to lay it down as an axiom, that the practice is a violation of the law of God. Should Congress, in legislative capacity, adopt the sentiment, it would establish the principle, that the Legislature is a proper tribunal to determine what are the laws of God. It would involve a legislative decision in a religious controversy; and on a point in which good citizens may honestly differ in opinion, without disturbing the peace of society, or endangering its liberties. If this principle is once introduced, it will be impossible to define its bounds. Among the religious persecutions with which almost every page of modern history is stained, no victim ever suffered, but for the violation of what government denominated the law of God. To prevent a similar train of evils in this country, the Constitution has wisely withheld from our government the power of defining the Divine Law. It is a right reserved to each citizen; and while he respects the rights of others, he cannot be held amenable to any human tribunal for his conclusions." The head of the committee in the Senate, Richard Johnson (ca. 1780-1850) of Kentucky, was praised for this landmark report; his political rise, to nomination as Martin Van Buren's vice-president, followed. Sunday mail delivery continued until after the Civil War, when rapid delivery of news became more a function of modern technology than seven-day a week diligence.

        ANATOMIE PATHOLOGIQUE DU CORPS HUMAIN

      Paris: J. B. Baillière, 1829. FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM, bound from the original parts n. Hardcover. One of the Great Works of Gross Anatomy,With Impressive Giant Folio Colored Plates. 486 x 337 mm (19 1/8 x 13 1/4"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM, bound from the original parts. Contemporary marbled boards backed with recent calf, raised bands flanked by gilt fillets, black morocco labels. WITH 231 LITHOGRAPHED PLATES (two folding) OF WHICH 167 ARE IN COLOR (many heightened with gum arabic), later tissue guards. Garrison and Morton 2286; "Heirs of Hippocrates" 863; Norman 538. Corners and edges somewhat rubbed with some loss of paper (as expected with large picture books), text with variable foxing (persistent, but usually light, never severe, and principally confined to margins), a handful of black and white plates with moderate spotting, additional small defects internally, otherwise quite a commendable copy of a book always found foxed, browned, and worse, our volumes solidly restored now, the spines unworn, and the text and remarkable plates with no fatal condition problems. Garrison & Morton declares that "the fine illustrations of gross anatomy [seen here] make this one of the greatest works of its kind." The inaugural professor of pathological anatomy in Paris, anatomist and pathologist Jean Cruveilhier (1791-1874) provided in the present work the first description of multiple sclerosis, and an early description of Cruveilhier's palsy. Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis and ulceration of the stomach due to hyperacidity were also described for the first time here. In "Doctrine of the Nerves," John A. Spillane called Cruveilhier "the prince of physician-pathologists" and this work a "treasure chest of neurology." "Heirs of Hippocrates" notes that "this atlas contains some of the finest illustrations of gross pathology ever made." The plates were done by anatomical illustrator Antoine Chazal (1793-1854), a French painter, engraver, art teacher at Muséum national d'histoire naturelle, and great-uncle of Paul Gauguin. This work was originally issued in 40 parts at nine francs each over a period of 13 years. The parts were ultimately bound together into two volumes, as here, in a print run that, based upon the subscriber's list, was likely just more than 400 copies. While no stranger to auction rooms, the book--a practical reference book heavily used by professionals--is all too often found with missing plates and/or parts, and in condition that leaves much to be desired.

        [GEORGIA BAPTIST ASSOCIATION] MINUTES OF THE GEORGIA ASSOCIATION [later GEORGIA BAPTIST ASSOCIATION]

      An extraordinary 31-year uninterrupted run of the transactions of the Georgia Baptist Association from its annual conferences, 1829-1859. 31 volumes, all 8vo, all either self-wrappers, stitched, or original printed wrappers (some later issues lacking outer printed wrappers), most untrimmed, most of 16 pages. Places of printing include Augusta (1829-1831 and 1856-1859), Washington, (1832-1840), and Penfield (1841-1855). The De Renne Catalogue describes only eight of the pamphlets in this collection (1841, 1843-1845, 1847-1848, 1851, and 1857). The issues for 1829 and 1834 lack title pages and a few early issues lack their stitching; otherwise a very good lot, all quite scarce in trade. List of individually described pamphlets available on request.

        New Panorama. A Startling Interrogation

      London: T. McLean, 1829. Handcoloured engraving, 300 x 410 mm.; in fine condition, framed. A fine impression of the coloured issue of this rare cartoon, satirising the colony which at this time was desperately trying to attract free immigration. The cashier taking money for the "New Panorama" (probably representing the Colosseum in Regents Park) is shown as if he is selling tickets for a voyage when he is actually selling entrance tickets to one of the fashionably realistic panoramas of exotic foreign places then exhibiting in London."Do you wish to go to Hell or Botany Bay? Sir" he asks, to which the prospective immigrant replies: "I wonts to go to Bottomy Bay"; a young girl exclaims to her enormously fat mother "La Mama I should like to see the Naughty Place better than any thing".William Heath (1795-1840), originally a career soldier, became well-known as a caricaturist and illustrator. His work reached a wide audience, even outside England: 'on cite aussi de lui des caricatures pleines d'humour sur les moeurs anglaises, vers 1825' (Bénézit Dictionnaire).Separately issued transportation and immigration views are scarce, and this is a particularly charming and amusing example in fine condition. It may be the single caricature by Heath of an Australian subject, though his publisher - Thomas McLean - published material of Australian interest by other artists.

        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.

        The Housekeeper's Oracle; or, Art of Domestic Management: Containing a Complete System of Carving with Accuracy and Elegance; Hints relative to Dinner Parties; the Art of Managing Servants; and the Economist and Epicure's Calendar, shewing the seasons when all kinds of Meat, Fish, Poultry, Game, Vegetables and Fruits first arrive in the market - earliest time forced - when most plentiful - and when best and cheapest. To which is added a Variety of useful and Original Receipts

      London: Whittaker, Treacher & Co, 1829. The delectable Arcana of Domestic Affairs. First, and only, edition, published posthumously. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Kitchiner, 21 figures to illustrate carving and one illustration of a jelly refiner in text. Pp. iv, 344. 8vo., contemporary calf, rebacked with the original gilt decorated spine laid down, booklabel of the Montefiore family on the front pastedown, a very good, handsome copy. Kitchiner's declared intention is to provide the means "that a young Lady may learn the delectable Arcana of Domestic Affairs...which will enable her to make the Cage of Matrimony as comfortable as the Net of Courtship was charming". The information in the excellent Epicures Calendar has endured with some particularly interesting insights into bread, cheese, bacon, fish, hams &c. Kitchiner (1775?-1827) was something of an eccentric. He was an Etonian who qualified as a doctor in Glasgow and therefore could not practice in England where he lived. He was very wealthy and gave marvellous banquets, of his own devising, at his home in Fitzroy Square. If, however, guests arrived even a few minutes late, they were denied entrance. He introduced the world to his culinary prowess in 'The Cook's Oracle' of 1817, many of the dishes in which he had created and tested himself. 'The Housekeeper's Oracle' was intended to be a companion volume. Unfortunately Kitchiner died before it was published and the cause was taken up by his son who had fallen out with his father but was very keen to cash in on his fame.

        UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

      Philadelphia: Published by Henry S. Tanner, 1829. - Engraved map, handcolored in outline, in sections backed on linen. Sheet size: 50 x 63 inches. Engraved by H.S. Tanner, assisted by E.B. Dawson, W. Allen, and J. Knight, with integral decorative title vignette after J.W. Steel. The map is surrounded by numerous small panels including two extensions to the area covered by the map, six more- detailed maps of environs of various eastern cities, eight city plans, a number of elevation profiles of railroads and waterways, and two tables of statistics. Rebacked on linen, expertly conserved by the Green Dragon Bindery. Silk lining edges. Lightly and evenly toned. A very nice copy, in a recent half morocco portfolio, stamped in gilt. The first edition of Tanner's spectacular and very beautiful large-scale map from "the Golden Age of American Mapmaking." The 1829 first edition of this map is described by Rumsey as "one of the best early large maps of the United States and the premier map for its period" (Rumsey 975). The map shows the United States from the Atlantic ocean to what today is western Kansas (noted as "Kanzas" on map). To the west of Michigan Territory and Missouri large areas of land include the locations of numerous Indian tribes but are designated as "Districts" rather than Territories: District of Huron, Sioux District, Mandan District, Osage District and Ozark District. Also included are canals, railroads, "McAdamized" roads and proposed canals and railroads. One of the most attractive and interesting aspects of the map are the numerous insets: these include sixteen inset city and regional maps (Environs of Albany; Environs of Boston; Environs of New York; Environs of Philadelphia and Trenton; Environs of Baltimore and Washington; Cincinnati; Charleston; New Orleans; South Part of Florida; Washington; Baltimore; Philadelphia; New York; Boston; Pittsburgh & Environs; Oregon and Mandan Districts [8 x 13 inches, with a further inset 'Outlet of Oregon River']) the border of the main map also includes fourteen profiles of portages, canals, and railroads and two tables in the lower right corner: Statistics of the Western Districts, and Statistics of the United States. According to Tooley, H.S. Tanner is "thought to be the first native-born American to devote his career to publishing," and he is responsible for some of the most important maps of the United States to be published in the 19th century.

The Puppet Theater in NaplesCarl Gustav Hjalmar Mörner, born May 7, 1794 in Stockholm, died September 15, 1837 in Paris, was a Swedish artist. He devoted himself first to the military court and participated in the battles of Grossbeeren, Dennewitz, Leipzig and Bornhöved. As with many other officers at the same time he devoted himself to amateur painting, which is testified by many of his sketches from youth, conviviality and the campaign in Germany. Later he turned seriously to art and traveled in 1816 over Germany and France to Italy, where he stayed until 1828. Mörner tried to paint larger compositions with historical or folklore motifs in oil, but had little success with them. One of the more famous paintings in this genre include Odin's arrival to Sweden's Rosendal Palace. His greatest contribution was made as a draftsman and lithographer. In 1820 he published a series of Roman carnival images in outline etching Il Carnevale di Roma, but these was later transformed into lithographs, which suited his drawing much better, as shown in Italian costume pictures (1825), Scenes populaires de Naples (printed in Naples in 1826, French edition 1828), Travel Memories France, Germany and Italy (1829) and Stockholmska Scenes (1830). During a stay in London from 1830-36, Mörner published a lithographic album, Miscellaneous Sketches of Contrasts (1831). A scheduled work on physiognomy was not completes due to the artist's death in Paris in 1837. Hjalmar Mörner's work is represented in the Gothenburg Museum of Art, ?-stergötland County Museum, Orebro County Museum, and the University Library in Uppsala.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("I. Moscheles")

      Hannover, 18. XII. 1829.. 2 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. Gr.-4to. Mit eh. Adresse am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief).. Schöner, ausführlicher Brief an den Wiener Komponisten Joseph Merk (1795-1852): "Sie haben mir recht viele Freude durch [Ihr] freundschaftliches Schreiben gemacht, u. doppelt genoß ich es da ich daraus noch immer den jovialen humoristischen alten Aventure-Kameraden erkannte. Meine Antwort erfolgte so spät weil ich Ihren Brief erst vor 8 Tagen in Hamburg fand als ich von einer großen Reise aus Dänemark und Schweden zurück kam. Es blieb mir daher nur Zeit meine Sinfonie schnell in Stimmen abschreiben zu lassen, und gestern expedirte ich sie per Post an Sie adressirt. Ich hoffe Sie erhalten sie mit diesem Briefe zugleich. Es gewährt mir große Beruhigung daß meine erste Arbeit in diesem Fache durch Ihre Hände der Gesellschaft des. k. k. Oesterr. Musikvereins zur Dedikation angeboten und zur Aufführung gebracht werden soll. Ihre Theilnahme und Freundschaft wird sich gewiß wieder dabey bewähren. Ich erwarte mir nicht daß dieses Werk in einer Stadt wo Haydn, Mozart und Beethovens Sinfonien das Tageslicht erblickt haben, einiges Aufsehen mache; sondern daß meine Freunde sehen mögen daß es mir nicht an guten Willen und Fleiß fehlt, zuweilen etwas besseres zu schreiben, als Bijoux a la Sontag. - Es wäre gut die Stimme in Partitur zu setzen für den Dirigenten, auch die erste Probe mit dupplirten streichenden Instrumenten zu machen, indem die Blasenden sehr stark benützt sind u. ein starkes streichendes Chor erfordern. Das Tempo ist in der Violin 1mo Stimme nach Maelzels Metronom angegeben. Wenn Sie mir über den Erfolg Ihrer Verwendungen etwas werden sagen könnnen, so bitte ich mir nach London zu schreiben [...]. In Copenhagen hatte ich eine angenehme Aufnahme u. spielte bey Hofe, wofür ich vom König eine goldene emaillirte Dose und vom Prinzen Christian einen Brillant Ring bekam. Meine Zeit war zu kurz um in Schweden weiter vorzurücken als bis nach Gothenburg wo ich in der Schnelligkeit ein gutes Concert machte. Grüßen Sie mir Herrn Haslinger [...]". - Moscheles war am Prager Konservatorium Schüler von Dionys Weber, in Wien von Johann Georg Albrechtsberger und Antonio Salieri "und gehörte bald zu den beliebtesten Pianisten und Lehrern Wiens" (DBE). 1825 übersiedelte er nach London, wo er zu den führenden Persönlichkeiten des Musiklebens zählte und als Professor an der Royal Academy of Music und als Mitdirektor und Dirigent der Royal Philharmonic Society tätig war. 1843 verpflichtete ihn sein ehemaliger Schüler und Freund Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy als Klavierlehrer an das Leipziger Konservatorium. Mit seinem Schaffen zählt Moscheles zu den bedeutendsten Pianisten seiner Zeit. - Kleine Papierdurchbrüche in den Bugfalten; kl. Randausriss von Siegelöffnung (keine Textberührung); eine Bugfalte im Gegenblatt alt hinterlegt.

        UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

      Philadelphia: Published by Henry S. Tanner, 1829.. Engraved map, handcolored in outline, in sections backed on linen. Sheet size: 50 x 63 inches. Engraved by H.S. Tanner, assisted by E.B. Dawson, W. Allen, and J. Knight, with integral decorative title vignette after J.W. Steel. The map is surrounded by numerous small panels including two extensions to the area covered by the map, six more- detailed maps of environs of various eastern cities, eight city plans, a number of elevation profiles of railroads and waterways, and two tables of statistics. Rebacked on linen, expertly conserved by the Green Dragon Bindery. Silk lining edges. Lightly and evenly toned. A very nice copy, in a recent half morocco portfolio, stamped in gilt. The first edition of Tanner's spectacular and very beautiful large-scale map from "the Golden Age of American Mapmaking." The 1829 first edition of this map is described by Rumsey as "one of the best early large maps of the United States and the premier map for its period" (Rumsey 975). The map shows the United States from the Atlantic ocean to what today is western Kansas (noted as "Kanzas" on map). To the west of Michigan Territory and Missouri large areas of land include the locations of numerous Indian tribes but are designated as "Districts" rather than Territories: District of Huron, Sioux District, Mandan District, Osage District and Ozark District. Also included are canals, railroads, "McAdamized" roads and proposed canals and railroads. One of the most attractive and interesting aspects of the map are the numerous insets: these include sixteen inset city and regional maps (Environs of Albany; Environs of Boston; Environs of New York; Environs of Philadelphia and Trenton; Environs of Baltimore and Washington; Cincinnati; Charleston; New Orleans; South Part of Florida; Washington; Baltimore; Philadelphia; New York; Boston; Pittsburgh & Environs; Oregon and Mandan Districts [8 x 13 inches, with a further inset 'Outlet of Oregon River']) the border of the main map also includes fourteen profiles of portages, canals, and railroads and two tables in the lower right corner: Statistics of the Western Districts, and Statistics of the United States. According to Tooley, H.S. Tanner is "thought to be the first native-born American to devote his career to publishing," and he is responsible for some of the most important maps of the United States to be published in the 19th century.

Nicklin, Law Bookseller, 1829. viii, [9]-349 pp. Octavo (8-3/4" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary sheep, rebacked in period style retaining lettering piece. Moderate rubbing and a few light scuffs to boards, corners bumped and worn. Moderate toning, occasional foxing and faint dampstaining. Early owner signature to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. A handsome copy of an important work. * Second edition. Rawle's treatise is one of the earliest works on the United States Constitution, and one of the most important. This text is significant also because it suggests that states have a right to secede from the Union. As Cohen observes, the popularity of this text, which was used at West Point and other schools throughout the country, "is generally considered to have influenced the leaders and supporters of the Confederacy, although in fact Rawle opposed secession."

        A plan of communication between the New and the Old town of Edinburgh, in the line of the earthen Mound, and of building upon that site, with observations and ground-plans Second edition, greatly enlarged, with additional plates

      Edinburgh; Oliver & Boyd; Simpkin & Marshall, London; and Robertson & Atkinson, Glasgow. 1829. 4to., with 6 large folding lithographic plates, (2) + 15 + (1) + 2 + (2)pp., together with numerous additional blank leaves, in a fine later binding of half calf gilt over marbled boards. A fine copy sometime in the library of Charles Sebag-Montefiore with his armorial bookplate>. This was Trotter's detailed proposal for the levelling of the Mound, the construction on the Mound of a fine neo-classical shopping arcade, and the provision of a new road across the Mound linking the New Town and the Old Town of Edinburgh. The shopping arcade was evidently at the heart of Trotter's enthusiastic scheme. It would be truly multi-functional, providing not only a shopping experience to rival London or Venice, but also galleries for modern art, a shelter from the violent winds 'so prevalent in the Good Town of Edinburgh', an attractive rendez-vous for 'the Belles and Beaux', and the daily flow of 'Judges and Gentlemen of the Law, Professors and others connected with the University' would all 'contribute to the prosperity of the Shopkeeper'. The Arcade (which would have a sophisticated system of central heating) would more resemble the Burlington Arcade in London, or the Galleries of Paris, surpassing them all in situation, as every shop would have the double advantage of fronting a principal street, as well as in having a front into a Gallery so eminently calculated to attract the great population of Edinburgh'.The plates here not only give a detailed view of both the elevation and the plan of the proposed Arcade, but also fine lithographic perspective drawings of the Old Town and its proposed access from Princes Street. In fact, Trotter's designs were never implemented.

      Philadelphia, 1829 2 volumes. i-[x]-251 pages; 234+[6 ad] pages. Small octavo (7 1/4" x 4 1/2") bound in full leather with black label to spine in gilt lettering. (BAL: 3844) First American edition. Published in London first in the same year.Cooper was one of the most popular 19th-century American authors, and his work was admired greatly throughout the world. While on his death bed, the Austrian composer Franz Schubert wanted most to read more of Cooper's novels. Honoré de Balzac, the French novelist and playwright, admired him greatly. Henry David Thoreau, while attending Harvard, incorporated some of Cooper's style in his own work. Cooper was one of the first major American novelists to include African, African-American and Native American characters in his works. In particular, Native Americans play central roles in his Leatherstocking tales. However, his treatment of this group is complex and highlights the tenuous relationship between frontier settlers and American Indians as exemplified in , depicting a captured white girl who is taken care of by an Indian chief and who after several years is eventually returned to her parents. Often, he gives contrasting views of Native characters to emphasize their potential for good, or conversely, their proclivity for mayhem. Last of the Mohicans includes both the character of Magua, who is devoid of almost any redeeming qualities, as well as Chingachgook, the last chief of the Mohicans, is portrayed as noble, courageous, and heroic.Condition:Spine head chipped, exterior hinges beginning, old armorial book plates to front pastedowns else a very good set.

        Travels In Arabia, Comprehending An Account Of Those Territories In Hedjaz Which The Mohammedans Regarded As Sacred

      London: Henry Colburn, 1829. - 4to. pp. xvi [i.e. xv], [1]errata, 478. with half-title. 1 folding engraved map & 4 folding engraved plans. full calf antique (some foxing, generally light but a little stronger on first few leaves, folding map lightly embrowned, offsetting from maps & plans). First Edition. Burckhardt travelled throughout North Africa and the Middle East for seven years under the auspices of the Association For Promoting The Discovery Of The Interior Parts Of Africa. A master of the Arabic language and the Islamic religion, he assumed the guise of an Arab using the name of Sheikh Ibrahim in his travels. His journals are invaluable for their observations on the Arab people and for his important geographical discoveries, including the site of Petra, Apameia, and the general structure of the peninsula of Mount Sinai. The present account of Burckhardt’s journey to Mecca in 1814 and subsequent trip to Medina in 1815, edited by William Leake and William Ouseley, the third of five works published by the African Assocation after Burckhardt’s untimely death in 1817, contains "the most accurate and complete account of the Hedjaz, including the cities of Mekka and Medina, which has ever been received in Europe. His knowledge of the Arabic language, and of Mohammedan manners, had enabled him to assumne the Muselman character with such success, that he resided in Mekka during the whole time of the pilgrimage, and passed through the various ceremonies of the occasion, without the slightest suspicion having arisen as to his real character."

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Abbotsford, Melrose: April 9, 1829 Single leaf, handwritten ink; with the original envelope, handwritten in brown ink, with the original red sealing wax. Good, with some light creasing and minor splits at the page folds, some toning to the recto, light spotting and tape reinforcements to the versos. Overall, a clean and unsophisticated letter, written by Scott at his home at Abbotsford. Scott addressed this letter to Frederick Mansel Reynolds, son of the noted dramatist Frederick Reynolds and editor of the yearly literary magazine The Keepsake. Notably, Charles Theodosius Heath, the founder of Keepsake, hoped to employ Scott as the editor, but Scott declined the offer, choosing instead to contribute three shorter stories to The Keepsake of 1829, which are collectively known as "The Keepsake Stories:" "My Aunt Margaret's Mirror," "The Tapestried Chamber," and "Death of the Laird's Jock." This letter is accompanied by an engraved portrait of Scott by renowned Scottish engraver John Horsburgh after a painting by Sir Thomas Lawrence. This steel engraving was published in Philadelphia by Gebbie and Barrie circa 1876. Notably, this line engraving employs a mixture of engraving and etching to create rich details and a sense of depth without any tonal processes.. Good.

        Leben und Tod des Joseph Brehm, gewesten Helfers zu Reutlingen, am 18ten Juli 1829. Von Philipp Ulrich Schartenmaier

      Tübingen, Georg Heinrich Reiß 1829.. Mit lithograph. Portrait als Frontispiz und mehrfach gefalt. kolor. Lithographie (28 x 38 cm). 14 S., 1 w. Bl. Pappband d. Zt. So praktisch unauffindbare Ausgabe des berühmten "Schartenmaier-Gedichts"; die beiden einzigen Bibliotheksnachweise über KVK jeweils ohne die hier vorliegenden Illustrationen! - Am 30. 8. 1828 fand eine Nachbarin des Reutlinger Geistlichen Joseph Brehm (geb. 1790) eine Nachgeburt in dessen Toilette; seine Magd Anna Kohberger stand schon länger im Verdacht von Brehm geschwängert worden zu sein. Eine sofort angestellte amtsärztliche Untersuchung bestätigte die Vermutung einer kurz vorher stattgefundenen Geburt, der Leichnam des Kindes wurde im Keller des Hauses von Brehm gefunden. Im Verhör gestand Brehm, er habe der Mutter nach der heimlichen Hausgeburt das Kind entzogen und es letztendlich erwürgt um der Schande in der Gemeinde zu entgehen. Das Todesurteil gegen Joseph Brehm wurde am 18. 7. 1829 vollstreckt. - Aus der in Württemberg aufsehenerregenden Geschichte machte der junge, später bedeutende Literaturwissenschaftler und Philosoph Friedrich Theodor Vischer (1807-1887) die hier vorliegende Moritat auf den Tag der Hinrichtung, die mit dem Vierzeiler endet: "Laut hört man es knarveln, schallen, Und der Kopf ist rab gefallen; O verehrtes Publikum, Bring doch keine Kinder um!" - Die schöne kolorierte Tafel zeigt Brehm in einer Kutsche auf dem Weg zur Richtstatt. - Fliegender Vorsatz mit zeitgen. Namenseintrag Autenrieth. Rücken berieben.

        The Practical Gardener. Volume I & II

      London.: Thomas Kelly.. 1829-1830.. VOLUME I AND VOLUME II FROM DIFFERENT EDITIONS: Volume I with a title page copyright 1830 (in addition to pictorial title page dated 1828); volume II title page is copyright 1829. BINDING OF VOLUMES DOES NOT MATCH. VOLUME I: Hard back volume, 8.25 x 5.5 inches, leather binding, xxviii+554pp, with pagination beginning with the Preface (iii thru viii) and a brief history of gardening (ix thru xxviii). The boards are scuffed and mottled with one plum-sized stain. 3.5 inch vertical crack (repaired) to front joint. The spine itself is dry and cracked and bumped at top and bottom. The bulk of the book (pp 1 thru 554) gives focus to the Culinary (or Kitchen) Garden and to the Fruit Garden. The volume contains a feebly imagined engraved frontispiece (tears and stains in margins of free edges) and four beautifully hand-colored plates depicting fruit: strawberry, pineapple, pear and apple (three dated 1828; one 1829). These plates suffer modest toning, light soiling and a light dampstain (.25 inch at deepest point) across the top margin, a condition also affecting, less detrimentally, the text portion of the Fruit Garden. The text remains tightly bound, save for a single loose page in the Fruit Garden section. VOLUME II: Hard back volume, 8.5 x 5.5 inches, half-leather binding, with pagination beginning at p. 555 and ending on index p. 1120. A 142 pp. Supplement follows the primary text; it is in two parts: "The Stove" and "Nursery and Planting." The last page provides Directions to the Binder and, on verso, an advert for "a new and elegant work" by McIntosh entitled "Flora and Pomona." The volume contains twenty-three full page plates, ten beautifully hand-colored depicting flowering plants. A black and white plate entitled Late Forcing Pit has suffered a vertical tear; only half the plate remains. The placement of plates appears to match the instructions to the binder appearing at the rear of the book. The volume is missing the front free end paper; previous owner's address on the blank page preceding the title page. One inch split to top of front joint. The index and final page at rear have separated from the text block and are held in place by the rear free end paper, resulting in wear to the fore-edge of these sheets. Scattered light foxing to the text block and black and white plates, the color plates are in very good condition: clean and bright. This was an extremely popular work which was published in several editions over a matter of just a few years, as the rage for gardening spread among the expanding British middleclass.. VOLUME I: The complete information on the title page reads: "The Practical Gardener, and Modern Horticulturist; containing the latest and most approved methods for the management of the kitchen, fruit and flower garden, the green house, hot house etc. etc. for every month in the year; each department being distinctly and separately arranged; illustrated by numerous designs of the most eligible plans for the formation of Kitchen and Pleasure Gardens, the erection of hot houses, hot beds, green houses, conservatories, walls, fences, etc. etc. including the New Method of Heating Forcing-Houses with Hot Water Only; forming a complete system of modern practice, in the various branches of Horticultural Science. Embellished with highly finished engravings of some of the most choice and valuable fruits and flowers now cultivated in this country. By Charles McIntosh CMCHS Late Gardener to the Right Honorable the Earl of Braedalbane, and Sir Thomas Baring," etc. The first chapter is a brief history entitled "The Rise and Progress of Gardening"; subsequent sections are entitled "The Culinary Garden" and "The Fruit Garden," both of which are organized by the months of the year, beginning in January, with a discussion of gardening activities appropriate to the season and the specific vegetable or fruit. The final chapter consists of "The Forcing Garden" (or Hot House Garden) The four color plates are most attractive, with condition issues noted. VOLUME II: The complete information on the title page reads: "The Practical Gardener, and Modern Horticulturist; containing the latest and most approved methods for the management of the kitchen, fruit and flower garden, the green house, hot house etc. etc. for every month in the year; each department being distinctly and separately arranged; illustrated by numerous designs of the most eligible plans for the formation of Kitchen and Pleasure Gardens, the erection of hot houses, hot beds, green houses, conservatories, walls, fences, etc. etc. including the New Method of Heating Forcing-Houses with Hot Water Only; forming a complete system of modern practice, in the various branches of Horticultural Science.

By Charles McIntosh CMCHS Late Gardener to the Right Honorable the Earl of Braedalbane, and Sir Thomas Baring," etc. The volume is organized by the months of the year, beginning in January, with a discussion of gardening activities appropriate to the season. The color plates are clean and attractive, and the volume is in overall good condition, with defects noted. .
