        CUADERNO DE LAS LEYES Y AGRAVIOS reparados a suplicación de los tres estados del Reino de Navarra. (incluido carta manuscrita del secretario de Dichas Cortes D. Josef Basset)

      Imprenta de Longas, Pamplona 1829 - Navarra 29'5x21, VIIp, 201p, 1h, 7p, 7p. (carta manuscrita del Secretario D. José Basset). Dicho cuaderno de las leyes se originó en las Cortes Generales del Reino de Navarra, "celebradas en la ciudad de Pamplona los años de 1828 y 1829 por la Magestad del Señor Rey Don Fernando III de Navarra y VII de Castilla, nuestro Señor. Y en su Real Nombre, por el Excmo. Señor Duque de Castro-Terreño, Teniente general de los Reales Ejércitos, Virey y Capitán general del Reino de Navarra, sus fronteras y comarcas. Con consulta de los Señores Ministros de los Reales Tribunales de este Reino que espresa la Patente, y asistieron con él en dichas Córtes". Como singularidad de este ejemplar, al final de la obra hay impreso en 7 páginas una carta del Secretario de las Cortes Generales de Navarra, D. José Basset, en el que exhorta (suponemos que al Duque de Castro-Terreño) a que, entre otras cosas, no haya modificaciones de los textos y correcciones, como al parecer iba a suceder. Tras estas páginas impresas, está la carta original manuscrita por dicho secretario (que entre otras cosas da fe de que el texto entregado es el mismo que el que fue acordado en las Cortes) que describe de forma más vehemente su rechazo a las comentadas modificaciones. Entre otras cosas, solicita la no aparición de la página correcciones y erratas de los textos aprobados, y que finalmente sí se realizó a cargo de D. Fermín Sanz y López. Encuadernado en pasa española, , tejuelos y dorados en lomo. Muy buen estado.

        A CHRONICLE OF THE CONQUEST OF GRANADA. FROM THE MSS. OF FRAY ANTONIO AGAPIDA

      London: John Murray, 1829.. Two volumes. Full contemporary calf, preserving the half-title in the first volume (none called for in second). Spines quite browned and worn, with large chip from crown of second, scattered foxing (occasionally moderate), otherwise a very good set. First British edition, succeeding the American edition, but publishing a variant text. Inscribed by Irving: "To Christopher Hughes Esq from his friend Washington Irving London, Nov. 19 - 1829," on the half-title to the first volume, and inscribed again on the title-page of the second volume. The recipient, at the time of the inscription, was charge d'affaires under J.Q. Adams to the court of the Netherlands, and in the course of his diplomatic service, was much in the circle of expatriate American diplomats and artists which Irving frequented during his European sojourn. Throughout his diplomatic service, "he won for himself at all his posts a unique place in the inner circle of social and diplomatic life" - DNB. Early Irving presentation copies, particularly those as meaningful as the present, are scarce. BAL 10126.

        NARRATIVE AND SUCCESSFUL RESULT OF A VOYAGE IN THE SOUTH SEAS, PERFORMED BY ORDER OF THE GOVERNMENT OF BRITISH INDIA, TO ASCERTAIN THE ACTUAL FATE OF LA PEROUSE'S EXPEDITION.

      London. 1829. - Two volumes. lxxviii,302pp. plus errata; [2],436pp. plus three plates (two folding, one colored), and folding map of Mannicolo. Octavo. Modern three- quarter gilt morocco and cloth by Aquarius, spines gilt, t.e.g. A few minor fox marks, mostly on preliminary leaves of first volume. Lacks half title in first volume. Overall a very good copy. Forty years after the disappearance of La Perouse, Dillon, a sandalwood trader, was shown a sword hilt in the Solomon Islands which raised his suspicions about the fate of La Perouse. He organized an expedition in Bengal and sailed back via Tasmania, New Zealand, and Tonga. He was able to assemble enough evidence from natives, both in testimony and artifacts, to determine where La Perouse had grounded. One of the ship's relics, a glass piece from a thermometer, became a native's nose piece (depicted on a folding plate). Along the way Dillon was involved in a terrific legal row with the government of Tasmania, also reported in detail. He provides a scathing examination of the legal system of Tasmania and New South Wales, finally declaring Australia "a land of corruption and injustice." For his efforts, France made Dillon a chevalier of the Legion of Honor, his expenses were defrayed, and he was granted a decent pension. HILL, p.83-84. FERGUSON 1336. ABBEY 598. HOCKEN, p.44.

      London:: S. W. Fores, 41 Piccadilly,. 1829.. A political caricature with Western Australian associations. The cartoon illustrates a whispering campaign against Wellington in the summer and autumn which led him to take legal action, when there was talk of the government breaking up.

The two men dumped from the cart are Wellington & Robert Peel. Amongst the papers scattered about the two men are "Swan River grants to Relatives". Peel attracted a certain amount of political heat for granting his cousin Thomas Peel extensive tracts of land in the new Swan River Colony, later Western Australia. BM:15809. Copper engraving with period hand color. 14 3/4 x 9 1/2" (platemark) with margins. Margins a little dusty otherwise very good condition.

        Le nouveau monde industriel et sociétaire, ou, Invention du procédé d'industrie attrayante et naturelle, distribuée en séries passionnées

      Bossange Père - P. Mongie Ainé 1829 - in-8. XVI. 576pp. Broché. Edition originale. Quelques rousseurs. Sur page de couverture Page collée autre livre pour renforcer couverture; idem, page de fin. Poussiéreux. A relier. Complet. Prix peut être discuté. Dans ce livre de 1829, Fourier donne un résumé de l'ensemble de sa doctrine : c'est une critique systématique de la civilisation et de ses déviations intrinsèques (individualisme, exploitation mondiale des ressources au profit des plus puissants, capitalisme libéral fondé sur la loi du plus fort et des parasites) et le projet possible d'une autre société déterminée par le principe de l'association mutuelle, régie non plus par des contraintes et des répressions mais selon le vrai moteur (le seul réel) de l'attraction passionnée (le principe de la motivation). Fourier brosse un immense tableau anthropologique (bien avant les psycho-sociologues) des diverses passions humaines, toutes utiles sans exclusives. Cette société vraiment réelle serait mue par l'harmonie des contraires et l'individu est envisagé non plus comme une entité fixe (uniforme) mais comme un être pluriel en mouvement. Il y a là tous les principes novateurs d'une éducation fondée sur les motivations propres de chacun et l'affirmation que l'individu ne peut s'épanouir (vers une sagesse jouissive et festive) qu'à l'intérieur d'une communauté ouverte. La seule méthode est la méthode attrayante ou série passionnée, la seule théorie réelle, c'est l'association solidaire. Fourier critique tout autant les illusions utopiques de son époque que le libéralisme économique et la monarchie absolue (la dictature de l'état central). L'ordre sociétaire unitaire et coopératif, et non plus morcelé et subdivisé (spécialisé) est dirigé par l'attraction industrielle selon une nouvelle distribution des passions, d'après la théorie des séries passionnées. «Si les pauvres, la classe ouvrière, ne sont pas heureux dans l'état sociétaire, ils le troubleront par la malveillance, le vol, la rébellion, un tel ordre manque le but, qui est d'associer le passionnel ainsi que le matériel, de concilier les passions, les caractères, les goûts, les instincts et inégalités quelconques».

Bound volume II, July to December, 1829, of John Neal's Yankee Magazine. Extremely uncommon first appearance of Poe in a literary journal. Neal's review of Poe's poem, Fairyland in the September issue provided Poe with his first public encouragement: "E. A. P. of Baltimore -- whose lines about 'Heaven,' though he professes to regard them as altogether superior to any thing in the whole range of American poetry, save two or three trifles referred to, are, though nonsense, rather exquisite nonsense Ñ would but do himself justice, might make a beautiful and perhaps magnificent poem. There is a good deal to justify such a hope." An extract of Fairyland follows. The December issue includes lengthy excerpts from 'Al Aaraaf', 'Tamerlane', and 'To ÑÑ' and a very positive review of the yet unpublished work, Al Aaraaf, the result of which was the collections publication. Poe would dedicate that volume to Neal in a show of his appreciation. Later half of volume is bound in several political pamphlets, including William Penn's Essays on the Present Crisis in the Condition of the American Indians; first published in the National Intelligencer. Boston: Perkins and Marvin, 1829. 112 pp; Speech of Daniel Webster, in Reply to Mr. Hayne, of South Carolina. Relative to The Public Lands. Washington: Gales and Seaton, 1830. 96 pp; Remarks of Mr. Webster in the Senate of the United States, May 9, 1828, on the Tariff Bill. Boston: Boston Daily Advertiser, 1828. 48 pp; Committee Review by Hon. Mr. Johnson of Kentucky, 1829. A textually Very Good volume, text block firmly bound, expected foxing, lower fore-edge corner mildly bumped, two front endpapers and frontis detached along with front cover, rear hinge starting, spine leather dry and chipped at ends.

        15 autograph letters, (22pp. of text plus address leaves) + 2 portraits

      Paris, 1829-1837. <p>Boivin, Marie Anne Victoire (1773-1841). Series of 15 autograph letters signed, mostly to her publisher Bailliere, plus 1 engraved and 1 lithographed portrait. 22 - 1/4pp. total (not including integral address leaves). Various sizes. Paris and Versailles, Feb. 6, 1829 - Dec. 4, 18[37?]. Creased where originally folded, light browning, portion of first letter cut away, occasional soiling.</p><p> Boivin, one of France&#39;s most celebrated midwives, studied midwifery at the Hospice de la Maternite under Mme. Lachappelle, and eventually rose to the post of Superintendent-in-Chief of midwifery at the Maison royale de sante. She was the author of several works on obstetrics and gynecology, including three classic treatises: Memoriale de l&#39;art des accouchements (1812; later editions 1817, 1824, 1836; Garrison-Morton 6165); Nouvelles recherches sur l&#39;origine, la nature et le traitement de la mole vesiculaire ou grossesse hydatique (1827; Garrison-Morton 6172); and Traite pratique des maladies de l&#39;uterus et de ses annexes (1833, with Antoine Duges; Garrison-Morton 6028). She also improved the speculum, and was one of the first surgeons to amputate the cervix uteri for cancer, a procedure described in her 1833 Traite. For her many achievements she was awarded an honorary M.D. by the University of Marburg. </p><p> Boivin&#39;s original publisher was Mequignon l&#39;aine, who issued both the first three editions of the Memoriale and the 1827 Nouvelles recherches. After Mequignon&#39;s death (referred to in passing in the present correspondence) Boivin switched to the firm of Bailliere, who published the 1833 Traite and the 1836 edition of the Memoriale, as well as her Recherches sur une des causes les plus frequentes et la moins connue de l&#39;avortement, suivies d&#39;un mÈmoire sur l&#39;intropelvimetre ou mensurateur interne du basin (1828).</p><p> The bulk of the present correspondence discusses issues relating to the publication of her 1833 and 1836 works: problems with the plates, requests for author&#39;s copies (a recurring theme in the correspondence), advertising and reviews, accounting issues, etc. Three letters in particular stand out. The first is that of Nov. 2, 1832, relating to the publication of the 1833 Traite, in which Boivin asks Bailliere to send to her co-author Duges an extract from Barron&#39;s Delineations (a work we have not been able to identify) prior to printing the Traite&#39;s important chapter on cancer. The second is that of July 19, 1836, referring to the publication of the 1836 Memoriale, in which Boivin complains that the book will be published too late to distribute to students at the beginning of the academic year, requests proofs of all printed sheets "jusqu&#39;a la 21e" (up to the 21st) so that she can work on the table des matieres and the plate register, and describes the additions she has made to the work as being not very great, so that it will not be much larger than the previous edition. The third is Boivin&#39;s letter of August 29, 1836, in which Boivin takes Bailliere to task for not supplying her with the number of author&#39;s copies of the 1833 Traite that she believes herself entitled to, an omission that has left her unable to supply copies to medical societies and individuals. This letter, one of the longest in the collection, includes Boivin&#39;s account of the costs associated with publishing the Traite, in which she declares that Bailliere owes her ten complete copies of the work. The difficulties referred to here, which had caused a "refroidissement" between Boivin and Bailliere, were apparently resolved, as in later letters she resumes the cordial tone she had previously used with her publisher.</p><p>A complete list of the letters follows: </p><p> Feb. 6, 1829: 1 pageplus address leaf requesting 2 copies of her treatise on uterine hemorrhage (1819)</p><p> Jan. 16, 1830: 1 page plus address leaf paying illustrators and what she owes Bailliere </p><p>Dec. 28, 1830: 1 page plus address leaf requesting Andral&#39;s Clinique medicale and Schlegel&#39;s Beaux Arts. Boivin&#39;s proposed addition to a second edition of Dailliez&#39;s thesis on prolapsed uterus</p><p>N.d. [1832]: 1 page plus address leaf requesting author&#39;s copies of the Traite<p><p> Oct. 17, 1832: 1-1/4 pages plus address leaf author&#39;s copies; poor coloration of plates</p><p> Nov. 2, 1832: 1 page plus address leaf advertising publication of the Traite. Barron&#39;s work to be sent to Duges (see above) </p><p>June 7, 1834: 2 pages plus address leaf reviews/advertisements of the Traite in the Constitutionale and the Temps </p><p> N.d. [1834]: 2 pages re judging the merits of 2 candidates (for an unspecified reason) </p><p>March 29, 1836: 2 pages plus address leaf re plates; accounting issues; present and future whereabouts </p><p>April 19, [1836]: 1 page plus address leaf: plate issues</p><p>July 19, 1836: 3 pages plus address see above </p><p>August 27, 1836: 3 pages plus address see above</p><p>N.d. 1 page, ordering lithographs of the hydatid mole and the pelvimeter</p><p> Oct. 18, n.y. [1836?]: 1 page, setting up a meeting / interview </p><p>Dec. 4, n.y. [1836?]: 1 page plus address leaf: thank-you note addressed to M. and Mme. Meaux de St. Marc </p><p>The two portraits included with this correspondence show Boivin in middle age. The lithograph includes a brief list of Boivin&#39;s titles and honors.

        Collection of six scarce works on navigation, hydrography, meteorology, and astronomy published at Nantes.

      Nantes: Victor Mangin, & Imprimerie Mellinet, 1829-33 - Octavo (198 × 124 mm). Contemporary quarter calf, imitation tree calf boards, black morocco label, edges stained yellow. Neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, variable foxing and browning, but overall very good. Folding lithographed map and 3 folding lithographic plates, one hand-coloured plate on thin card stock, attractive wood-engraved illustrations and devices to the text. First editions of a group of rather eccentric theoretical papers on a range of matters maritime by an "ancien marin Nantaise", based in his experiences as a ship's captain in the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans. In his introduction to the first "opuscule" Fruneau insists that he is not seeking patronage (Certes! l'intérêt ni autres motifs n'ont aucune part à cet ouvrage), but merely to please the public eye (curiosité publique) by passing along, in the harsh and hard (âpre et dur) language of the sea, some little-known, or even unknown "circonstances" and his theories about them, based entirely on my own observations (les systèmes qui en dépendant sont les fruits de mes seules observations). The works gathered here, apparently for presentation by the author, are: (1) Mélanges en Précis, sur des Considérations Conjecturales et d'Hypothèses, sur la Lune et les Marées, les Causes et Formations des Vents et Pluies, par les Électricités (1829); (2) Essais Météorologique sur la Formation des Bancs de Glace; sur le Fond des Fleuves, Lacs et Mers; sur les Premiers Élements d'un Nouveau Système du Monde (1830); (3) Succinte Dissertation faisant Suite au Système Solaire (1830); (4) Succincte Hypothèse sur la Cause de l'Obliquité de l'Écliptique avec l'Équateur, etc., faisant Suite a mon Système Solaire (1831); (5) Continuation de nes Aperçus Philosophiques, Phisiologiques, Cosmologiques, Aérologiques, Géologiques, etc. (1831); and (6) Précis qui sont Suite a mes Observations sur quelques Circonstances Physiques et Hydrographiques etc. (1832). Copies of these are recorded in the BnF and the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle only. The pagination of these works is somewhat erratic, and there are a number of brief insertions, including a two-page Notice which is signed and has six lines in Fruneau's hand, relating to his presentation of a collection of his "ouvrages" to M. Hyde de Neuville, Ministre de la Marine. As he has explained, the origins of Fruneau's speculations are firmly rooted in his thirty years' experience as an officer on merchant ships. The first paper, which covers his theories on tempests, includes a highly-detailed lithographed map of the Philippines and adjacent islands, and three superb plates of incidents in the surrounding seas. The map has been heavily annotated identifying additional islands and hazards, and with historical and topographical notes. It speaks well of his cartographic skills and local knowledge that the British National Archives hold two manuscript charts of the Philippines by Fruneau (ADM 352/40 and 41) dated to the 1780s, and formerly in the Admiralty Hydrographic Department.

      Paris: Delpech, 1829. - "Then" and "Now"&#151;Eighteen Scarce Hand-Colored Lithographed Plates By Le Maitre MonnierMONNIER, Henri. Jadis et aujourd&#146;hui. Paris: Delpech, 1829.Title from front wrapper. Oblong folio (Plate size: 10 3/4 x 14 inches; 274 x 356 mm.; Wrapper size: 11 5/8 x 16 1/8 inches; 296 x 410 mm.). Eighteen hand-colored lithographed plates, depicting bankruptcy, childhood, dressing, the boudoir, a physician, an attorney, the promenade, an evening gathering, etc. ,"then" and "now."Loose, as issued, in the original cream-colored lithographed wrappers. Spine of wrappers neatly repaired. The plates are very clean, with only minimal edge browning. Two tiny tears to the right margin of the plate "Aujourd&#146;hui. Etude d&#146;avoué." A wonderful copy of this extremely scarce series of plates.Scarce, with no copies in institutional holdings worldwide, nor auction records within the last thirty-six years."Between 1825 and 1827 Monnier passed much of his time in London, where he collaborated with Lami in what was to become the Voyage en Angleterre. On his return to Paris he embarked on a series of albums in which he recorded the manners and humors of the city with unprecedented profusion. Between 1826 and 1830 he satisfied the insatiable demand for his designs with almost 500 lithographs, nearly all of which were drawn with a pen and colored by hand. For each design he himself colored a master print and carefully supervised its subsequent preparation Some of the salient titles in his human comedy may be mentioned. There are potpourris like Recréations du coeur et de l&#146;esprit, Paris vivant, and Rencontres Parisiennes. Macédoine pittoresque. There are more closely focussed surveys like Les grisettes, Moeurs administratives, Galerie théâtrale, Boutiques de Paris, and Six Quartiers de Paris. There are suites like Jadis et aujourd&#146;hui and Les contrastes, which take their departure from comparisons in time or of manners Monnier was a satirist with a difference. His attitude towards his subjects hardly varies. His aim was to set down what he saw with elegance and precision, but with no overt interpretation or judgment"(Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, p. 199).The Plates: 1. Jadis.

        The History of Little Henry and His Bearer

      London - F. Houlston and Son, 1829 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A nice copy of Mary MarthaSherwood&#39;s popular childrens&#39; 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&#39;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&#39;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.

        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.
