        Siamesische Zwillinge - Zwei 14 jährige zusammengewachsene Knaben sind vor kurzem durch einen Schiffskapitain aus Siam nach Bosten gebracht worden... (Sp.329).

      . Notiz. Geb. Nat. Heilk., 25/ 21. - Weimar, Landes-Industrie-Comptoir, October 1829, 4°, Sp.320-336, Brosch.. Beigelegt sind dieser, meiner Kenntnis nach ersten Mitteilung in einer wissenschaftlichen Zeitschrift im deutschen Sprachraum über die berühmten Siamensischen Zwillinge weitere 7 Hefte mit Artikeln über dieses Thema der "Notizen aus dem Gebiete der Natur- und Heilkunde". Eine dieser Arbeiten enthält wohl die erste in Deutschland veröffentlichte Abbildungen der Zwillinge. - Ueber die beiden mit dem Bauche zusammengewachsenen Brüder,... erstatte Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire am 19. Oct. 1829 der Academie des Science einen Bericht. (Nov. 1829, 26/ 3, Sp.33-36). - Die beiden zusammengewachsenen Siamesen sind in London eingetroffen (Dec. 1829, 26/ 7, Sp.106). - Ueber die beiden zusammengewachsenen Siamesischen Knaben, findet sich in den englischen Zeitschriften vom 24.Nov. 1829 eine ziemlich genaue Beschreibung... (Dec. 1829, 26/ 9, Sp.129-132). - S.Mitchell & W.Anderson aus New York schreiben Fogendes an Captain Coffin (Dec. 1829, 26/ 9, Sp.132-133). - Eine Abbildung der Siamesischen Zwillingen, (Jan. 1830, 26/13, Sp.202, 1 lith. Taf. mit einer Abbildung der Zwillinge nach einer Veröffentlichung der Revue medicale, November 1829). - Die Siamesischen verwachsenen Zwillingsbrüder wurden in die dritte Conversazione in dem Royal College of physicians eingeführt... (März 1830, 27/ 4, Sp.54-55). - Noch einige Nachrichten über die zusammengewachsenen Siamesen (Juli 1830, 27/22, Sp.345-346). - Die Siamesischen Zwillinge (Jan. 1836, 47/ 4, Sp.49-55). - - "Die berühmtesten Doppelwesen waren Eng und Chang, deren Kennzeichung als 'Siamesische Zwillinge' einen Sprachbegriff schuf." - "Eng und Chang wurden 1811 in Siam von einer Chinesin geboren, die außerdem zwölf gesunden Kindern das Leben schenkte. Nur mit Mühe konnten die Zwillinge über die Kinderzeit gebracht werden, teils wegen ihrer Körperschwäche, teils weil sie verborgen gehalten werden mußten, da dem siamesischen König nach einer Weissagung Unheil bei der Geburt von Monstern drohte. 1824 entdeckte sie ein englischer Kaufmann und schwatze sie zwecks Nutzung als Ausstellungsobjekt den Eltern ab. Der Schaustellung in USA folgte eine Tour durch Europa. später ließen sich Eng und Chang in North Carolina nieder und heirateten 45jährig zwei fast zwanzig Jahre jüngere Schwestern. Wegen häuslicher Zwistigkeiten mußten die Frauen in getrennten Häusern untergebracht werden, in denen die Zwillinge umschichtig wohnten. Chang hatte 6 Kinder, Eng 5, sämtlich gesund und kräftig. Ein neuerlicher Besuch Europas, diente der Vorstellung bei berühmten Chirurgen zwecks operativer Trennung. Doch kamen die Chirurgen der alten und neuen Welt über Diskussionen nicht hinaus. Auch Rudolf Virchow hatt sie 1871 untersucht und darüber berichtet. Nach der Rückkehr wurde Chang halbseitig gelähmt. Beide starben 1874 dicht nacheinander. Auf die Nachricht ihres Todes eilte ein Ärztekonsortium von Philadelphia und North Carolina herbei. Aus dem Autopsiebericht geht hervor, dass die Verbindungsbrücke Lebergewebe, Zwerchfellfasern und Xyphoidknorpel enthielt; Pertionealhöhlen und die Brustorgane waren getrennt."

      1829 - the first is to to Henry Kane, Consul at Ancona, introducing "Mr Ja's Emerson and Mr Tennent . who are proceeding to Greece with a desire of rendering their talents and exertions serviceable to the Greek cause ." asking for his assistance for them, 1 side 4to., London, 1st October 1824, the next letter is to a distinguished group of editors in Paris, whose names are listed on the conjugate leaf, in French with translation detailing his travels, he has returned from "Germany and reckon to stay until February when . I intend to go to Transylvania and the Slav provinces, to pursue my studies and complete the work of which I send you the prospectus . The bearer of this letter is Mr James Emerson - He is working on a history of the Greek Revolution - which will certainly be worth more than any other that we have up till now. He knows the terrain and is already well knows to advantage by his writings. He will need to dip into the files of your Greek Committee where no doubt he will find much treasure .", 1 side 4to., London, 10th December 1829 and the final letter promises to sort out "some of the Pamphlets. If I let you have a vol. at a time - how long would you require it? ." asking him to pass on a prospectus to Mr Watts and saying that he will "not publish on such a subject unless I can any way to cover cost . having a tolerable list of subscribers .", 2 Queen's Square Place, 11th December Sir John's bent for languages was nurtured in a mercantile house in Exeter.

        Map Of The State Of Maine With The Province Of New Brunswick

      1829 - Steel engraving. Original wash color, refreshed; expertly conserved, re-mounted on new linen; a few cracks & marginal mends but fine for this kind. The very rare (three copies cited in OCLC), first edition of this excellent map of Maine by the state¿s first mapmaker. An exceptionally well-preserved example. Unlike many early American state maps that struggled to get completed, Greenleaf¿s received a warm commendation from the state legislature even before it was published, and the mapmaker was granted $1000 to aid him in finishing the map. Greenleaf later received $640 from the legislature for 40 copies of the map that were obtained for state use, a remarkable $16 per copy. Perhaps the large number of copies sold for official rather than private use helps account for the map¿s present rarity. The map was originally intended to accompany an atlas and survey of the state that Greenleaf published the same year, but very few complete sets of the three items are known to have survived. Greenleaf appears to have taken special care in the production of this map. Although published in Portland, Maine, Greenleaf employed as engravers for this work the estimable J. H. Young and F. Dankworth, both of whom produced major works for the firms of S. A. Mitchell and others. This precisely detailed map, which shows ten counties in different colors, provides state, county, town and township boundary lines. The state¿s many rivers, lakes, ponds, and even falls are shown as are roads and elevations. The map was re-published in 1844 by Greenleaf¿s son and namesake from the same plates but with emendations, and several times thereafter. Greenleaf published two earlier maps of the state in 1815 and 1820, but the present work was by far his finest. Ristow, W. American Maps and Mapmakers, pp. 95-96; Catalogue Raisonne Important Maine Maps,¿ (Auction Catalogue for Thompson Collection Auction, Robert E. Croul, 2003) lot 119.

        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&#39;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.

        The New Protestant Sovereign Safely Coach Wot&#39;s about to Start from the New Castle Windsor, on Improved Principles; the Late on being found Crazy

      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.

        ROYAL ASIATIC SOCIETY OF GREAT BRITAIN & IRELAND]. [Autograph Letter Signed, Regarding Ouseley Activities in the Royal Asiatic Society and Mentioning George FitzClarence and the First Edition of "The Travels of Ibn Batuta"].

      Woolmers, Hertford 1829 - Woolmers, Hertford, 22 October 1829. Octavo (ca. 20,5x16 cm). 1 pp. Brown ink on paper. Mild folds, light toning, remains of guards, but overall a very good letter. An interesting letter from Sir Gore Ouseley, British diplomat and orientalist, noted for preparing the Treaty of Gulistan (1814) between Russia and Persia while serving as ambassador in Persia in 1810-1815. The letter relates to the Royal Asiatic Society which was founded in 1823 with the close participation of Ouseley: "He was one of those responsible for the founding of the Royal Asiatic Society in London in 1823 and was associated with the formation of the oriental translation committee, of which he was elected chairman. He became president of the Society for the Publication of Oriental Texts, formed in 1842" (Oxford DNB). In the letter Ouseley thanks his addressee for "information about Col. FitzClarence" - obviously, meaning George Augustus Frederick FitzClarence (1794-1842), a military officer who served in India and also became an orientalist and a founder of the Royal Asiatic Society. Noteworthy is the fact, that FitzClarence "was a member of the society's committee preparing plans for publishing translations of oriental works, and was subsequently deputy chairman and vice-president of the Oriental Translation Fund" (Oxford DNB). It explains Ouseley writing that "in the course of a day or two I shall have a letter ready for the Ambassador at Constantinople to accompany the Copy of Ibn Batuta for the Sultan." He obviously meant "The travels of Ibn Batuta" - a history of travels of a famous Medieval Muslim explorer Ibn Battuta (1304-1368 or 1369) which has just been published by John Murray "for the Oriental Translation Committee" where Ouseley and FitzClarence were both members. At the end of the letter Ouseley gives his opinion on the circulation of the reports, probably of the Society: "I think 40 or 50 might be selected to have them sent to, but certainly not more! And I [?] find that the number I have mentioned is much greater that those who would take the trouble of reading them." A nice letter revealing details of the history of the Royal Asiatic Society.

      York: privately printed for the author, + London: John Murray, . First edition. 1829 - Pp. xvi, 192; 14 full page plates (1 geological map, 8 sections and 5 lithographs of fossil invertebrates and plants (1 map and 7 sections are hand-colored) + xx, 253, (1); 25 plates (22 lithographs of invertebrates and plants and 2 folding sections and 1 large folding geological maps (all monochrome). Recent polished one-half black morocco leather, spine with five raised bands titled in gilt on black leather and green leather labels in three compartments, over English pale blue marbled boards with pale blue endpapers, 4to (284 x 215 mm). John Phillips (1800-1874) was an English geologist who published the first global geologic time scale based on the correlation of fossils in rock strata, thereby helping to standardize terminology including the term Mesozoic, which he coined. After both of his parents died he was raised by his uncle, William Smith, known as the 'father of geology.' Smith is credited with creating the first nationwide geological map linking of England and Wales into a single record (modified after Wiki). Phillips first major monograph was the 'Geology of Yorkshire,' first published in 1829. This important work went through three editions. This first edition is quite rare. Gifted by English geologist, J. Selwyn Turner, to American paleontologist Arthur K. Miller, with a signed note from Turner laid on at front. There is a short note in pencil on first title page likely in the hand of J. Selwyn Turner. Scattered foxing to some monochrome lithographed plates, mostly confined to the rear (blank) side of the plates, title page of part 2 with mild foxing, a few pages of the text also some just a touch of foxing, the fine binding is very bright and clean; overall a tight copy in near fine 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».
