        The History of Little Henry and His Bearer

      London - F. Houlston and Son, 1829 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A nice copy of Mary MarthaSherwood's popular childrens' book. Twenty-Fifth Edition. With frontispiece and additional illustrated title. The History of Little Henry and his Bearer (1814) was written by Mary Martha Sherwood. It was continuously in print for 70 years after its initial publication and was translated into French, German, Spanish, Hindustani (1814; 1873), Chinese, Marathi (1853), Tamil (1840), and Sinhalese. Telling the story of a young British boy who, on his deathbed, converts Boosy, the Indian man who has taken care of him throughout his childhood, the book is dominated by imperialistic and evangelical themes. Sherwood's tale blends the realistic with the sentimental and introduces her readers to Hindustani words and descriptions of what she felt was authentic Indian life. Mary Martha Sherwood (ne Butt) (6 May 1775 22 September 1851) was a prolific and influential writer of children's literature in 19th-century Britain. She composed over 400 books, tracts, magazine articles, and chapbooks. Condition: In decorative full calf binding. Externally very good, just a little shelfwear. Front hinge has been reinforced. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and clean throughout with just the odd spot or ink blot. Foxing to frontis and illustrated title. Copperplate ink signature to front free-endpaper dated 1834.

Translated from a Spanish "derrotero," a type of sea chart, this manuscript offers navigational tips similar to the previous document, though here the emphasis is on various landmarks, including those near Salamanca and others. 3) DESCRIPTION DE LA CÔTE DE CARACAS ET DES ÎLES VOISINES, DEPUIS LE CAP CODERA JUSQU'À CELUI DE SAN ROMAN. A collection of pithy descriptions of various locales in the Antilles, including Caracas, Aruba, Cape Codera, Curaçao, and others. 4) [Manuscript Map of Madame Island].

"Madden writes in this epistolary work of harems, slave markets, religion, crime and punishment, politics, and numerous other subjects as well as medicine, and in his preface describes the difficulties encountered by a traveler to the East whose fate has been 'to have been taken for a spy in Syria, to have endangered my life in Candia, for refusing to administer poison, to have been shot at in Canea twice, and once on the Nile, by Turkish soldiers--to have been accused of changing the fragments of a broken statue into gold at Thebes--to have been charged with sorcery in Nubia and to have been a captive with Greek pirates, for wearing a long beard, when taken in a vessel bearing Turkish property'" (Blackmer sale catalogue, 801).

        HISTOIRE DE L'INQUISITION EN FRANCE. [3 volumes].

      1829 - A Paris, chez J.-G. Dentu, 1829. Trois volumes in-8 (142 X 216) demi-maroquin violine, dos quatre nerfs ornés de filets perlés et sertis de filets dorés, auteur, titre et tomaison dorés, fleuron doré dans les compartiments (reliure de l'époque) ; TOME I : faux-titre, titre, CVII pages (préface), 398 pages ; TOME II : faux-titre, titre, 662 pages, 1 feuillet (errata) ; TOME III : faux-titre, titre, 621 pages, 3 pages non chiffrées (catalogue éditeur). EDITION ORIGINALE. Cet ouvrage très complet couvre le sujet depuis les poursuites et confiscations exercées contre les Albigeois en 1178 jusqu'à l'abolition de l'Inquisition par ordonnance de Louis XV en 1772. Il donne, en dernière partie, un tableau chronologique des évènements relatifs à l'Inquisition, ainsi qu'un index des noms et lieux cités. Les récits atroces de cette Histoire furent largement repris dans bien d'autres ouvrages, en particulier celui de Joseph Hansen sur la sorcellerie au Moyen Âge, "Sources and investigations regarding the history of obsessive belief in witches and witch hunts in the middle ages", qui devint à son tour une référence. Au bout du compte, les ouvrages de Lamothe-Langon furent à l'origine d'une part importante des "connaissances" du XXe siècle sur l'Inquisition, la sorcellerie, la torture et la jurisprudence médiévale. Cet ouvrage était supposé se baser sur des archives encore jamais exploitées du diocèse de Toulouse, mises à la disposition de l'auteur par l'évêque Hyacinthe Sermet. En fait Norman Cohn a démontré que l'auteur, romancier populaire et non historien, a falsifié l'histoire en décrivant des procès en masse de sorcières à Toulouse au XIIIe siècle. (Bibliothèque Frédéric et Anne MAX, N°390 ; Norman Cohn, Europe's Inner Demons, pp. 127-138). Dos des reliures uniformément passés, rousseurs éparses, restauration à un nerf du premier volume, néanmoins AGREABLE EXEMPLAIRE de cet ouvrage RARE. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

        Analysis of the Phenomena of the Human Mind.

      Baldwin and Cradock, London 1829 - Volume 1: TP + [iii]-iv + [1]-320; Volume 2: TP + [iii]-iv + [1]-312; Octavo.James Mill studied philosophy under Dugald Stewart and (with Bentham) is the bridge between that older school of Scottish philosophy and the fully-formulated Utilitarianism of his son, John Stuart Mill. This work was Mill's major philosophical contribution - his other major works being historical, The History of British India (1817) and economic, Elements of Political Economy (1821). In this philosophical and psychological book, he supports and elaborates the asssociationist epistemology of Hartley and Hume and attempts to exlain all mental phenomena in terms of association. Unfortunately the signature on each volume is NOT that of English radical politician and etymologist John Horne Tooke who died in 1812 - 17 years before this book was published. More's the pity since Tooke was the author of The Diversions of Purley (London, 1776). Two volumes bound in original boards. Surprisingly, the exterior of volume 1 is of a darker color than the boards and spine of volume 2. This does not look to be the result of sunning but simply the way that the books were originally bound. (Note that both volumes are signed on the front end paper in contemporary brown ink: "J. Tooke / 1829" providing further evidence that this was the original state of these books.) Both volumes have worn and lightly stained boards with bumped corners. The spine of each has the original printed paper label. On volume one, the paper label is about 50% readable. The label on volume 2 is about 75% readable. The first volume has a very light water stain to lower edge of the inside front cover and a darker, corresponding stain (uneven along the bottom 4" of the page) to the front fly leaf. The rest of both books (including the TP's) are fresh, bright and clean but for some very occasional contemporary pencil marginalia. Uncommon in any condition, these books have had some truly expert restoration work to the spines, making for a charming set of this important work by James Mill. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

      Rowland Hunter, London 1829 - This book was issued in 1827 in a shorter form with fewer plates. This 1829 2nd issue edition has a new preface, the original preface, and also contains the 1827 title page in addition to its 1829 title page. There is an errata sheet (additional corrigenda) plus a small, additional errata sheet tipped in behind the first. Profusely illustrated (B&W) with maps and drawings, with 45 full page illustrations, plus a full page map, plus smaller wood vignettes at the beginning of each chapter and smaller tipped-in vignettes at the end of each chapter.

There are comparisons of the Hebrew, Sanskrit, Druid and Latin alphabets. 324 pages including Appendix and Index, and including an explanation of the vignettes. There are some small, light foxing spots on some pages but they're not obtrusive aside from pages 68-69, which have a small area of the inner, upper portion of each page darkened from a 1929 news clipping laid in about King Kalakaua's Masonic membership scroll being found in Oakland, CA. There is also laid in a small piece of paper (lovely handwriting) talking about Druids and Welsh legends, a 1870 note about this book on the back of a Grover's 'soft shoes for tender feet' ad, and an 1866 bookseller's (Mr. Benton) note to George Gibson, whose name is inscribed on a front end page, agreeing to sell him this book for $20, as seen in Mr. Benton's cataogue No. 20. A few preliminary pages are unopened at the top. The book is bound in the original dark green cloth with a paper label on the spine. There are some very small areas of bubbling to the cloth, some edge wear to the binding mostly at spine ends, some small areas of paper only slits at gutters (not affecting binding integrity), and some wear to the edges of and fading to the spine label, though still quite legible. Clean, tightly bound, complete, and in solid very good plus condition. ; Drawings, Plates & Maps; 11-1/2" x 9-1/4"; 324 pages [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE CANTON REGISTER. VOLUME 2 [and] VOLUME 3

      Canton, China. January 3, 1829 - December 18, 1830.. 116; 114pp. (final leaf in volume 2 bound in backwards). Bi-weekly newspaper. Volume 2, numbers 1-24; Volume 3, numbers 1-25. Small folio. Late nineteenth century half cloth and plain paper boards, spine gilt. Minor wear to binding. Mild tanning, a few leaves unevenly trimmed, occasional edge tears. Lower corner of final leaf of volume 2 chipped, affecting a few letters of text. Very good. An unbroken run of the second and third volumes of THE CANTON REGISTER, the first English-language newspaper in China. Published from 1827 to 1843, it was also the only Chinese English-language newspaper for much of this time. As such, it provides an invaluable record of China, as viewed through Western eyes, during this era. The newspaper was co-founded by American-born William Wightman Wood and the Scottish merchants James and Alexander Matheson. Commercial matters are a major focus of the newspaper, and many issues contain a "Canton Price Current," giving prices for a variety of imports and exports, including opium, "elephant's teeth," tea, rice, shark's fins, sandalwood, mother of pearl shells, animal skins (including beaver, fox, rabbits, seals, and sea otters), spices, Indian cotton, ebony, coral, ginseng, and much, much more. There is also information on ships coming in and out of port, several stories about the massacre of the crew of the ship, Navigateur, and other crimes at sea, including mutiny, the arrest of pirates, etc. Chinese royal proclamations are printed, and there are articles on Chinese politics, laws, language, and culture. There are also remarks on the Imperial family and their customs, articles on local crime, Chinese views about suicide and murder, articles on eunuchs, longevity, medicine, and also the results of horse racing at Macao. Mention is made of the British Museum in China and the 1830 earthquake south of Peking, and there is also much news from other parts of China and Asia, including Macao, Peking, Japan and Malacca. A lengthy run of a rare English-language Chinese newspaper, giving much valuable information in the age when American and European trade with China was increasing greatly.

Jones, inspector of schools and antiquary, settled in Beaumaris, on Anglesey, to make a living by writing: he contributed twenty-six articles to Blackwood's Magazine between 1840 and 1849. In 1848 Kay-Shuttleworth appointed him her majesty's inspector (HMI) of church schools for the whole of Wales, a post which Jones used to urge the acknowledgment of the principality's distinctive needs. His passionate espousal of the Welsh language and its culture brought him into conflict with the education department. See ODNB for a full Bio.(Lowndes 1225. COPAC. WorldCat)

        The Amaranth; Or, Masonic Garland. Volume 1: 1828-29

      Boston: Charles W. Moore & Edwin Sevey, April, 1828-October, 1829 - A volume comprising a complete run of this important journal, which historian Robert Reid identifies as "the first exclusively Masonic periodical. " Published in the wake of the Morgan affair (reports of which percolate throughout these pages), THE AMARANTH offered "an unfailing source of supply" for freemasons of the day--and for later editors, who cribbed material from it for decades. The editor, Charles Moore, was a writer of no mean accomplishment. He was the founder and editor of THE MASONIC MIRROR, which Albert Mackey identifies as "the first Masonic newspaper ever issued in America, and, perhaps, in the world, " and THE FREEMASON'S MONTHLY MAGAZINE, which he published from 1841 until his death in 1873. The journal contains reportage on many events of interest to the Masonic historian. The frontispiece to the volume is a woodcut of the New York Masonic Hall, the subject of the first article in the first issue. With the contemporary ownership signature of one G. Day. The binding is sound, and the spine intact, but the leather corners are decayed, and the marbling to the covers is worn to peeling at the edges, There are signs of mildewing to the initial pages, some of which are stuck together. Not the most attractive copy, admittedly, but worthy of restoration. At any rate, a complete run of a very rare periodical. [Attributes: First Edition]
