        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.

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.

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.

This a very nice copy of the rare Elephant Folio edition (17 * 14 inch). 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)

A good copy of the rare Elephant Folio edition (17 * 14 inch). Jones, inspector of schools and antiquary, brought the application of critical method to the study of Welsh archeology and history, leading to a break with Ab Ithel and the obscurantist school of Welsh historians associated with Iolo Morgannwg. Thereafter Jones dedicated the journal to rigorous historical scholarship, both through his own contributions in the form of learned articles and fine pencilled drawings of cromlechs and inscribed stones, and by providing an outlet for such gifted scholars as Thomas Stephens.

      [San Felipe de Austin: Printed by G.B. Cotten, 1829]. - Printed document, completed in manuscript. 6 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches. Signed by Samuel M. Williams. Small tear along old fold (slightly affecting a few letters of printed text). Else very good overall. In a half morocco and cloth box. A rare imprint from the San Felipe de Austin press of Godwin Brown Cotten, an original certificate of admission to Austin's colony. "These grants were the foundation of the colonization of Texas" - Streeter. This document reflects one of the four essential steps in the colonization process, being the empresario's certification stating that the immigrant (in this case a widow named Frances Manifee) had been admitted as a member of Austin's colony. The next step would be to present this certificate to the commissioner charged with issuing land titles in the Colony. This document is signed in manuscript by Samuel M. Williams, a close associate of Stephen F. Austin. Streeter refers to a similar form in his collection dated June 2, 1831, also signed by Samuel M. Williams. "For thirteen years Williams was Austin's lieutenant; he wrote deeds, kept records, and directed colonial activities during the empresario's absences" - NEW HANDBOOK OF TEXAS. This is effectively the earliest obtainable Texas imprint, since any earlier ones are only surmised or exist in a few copies in institutions. It is now extremely rare in the marketplace. The only recent sale of a copy was of a much inferior one, with loss on the top margin, which sold at Sotheby's in the Texas Independence Collection sale on June 18, 2004 for $30,000 including house premium.

        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]

        Beschreibung des Festes Der Zauber Der Weissen Rose gegeben in Potsdam am 13 July 1829 zum Geburtstage Ihrer Majestät der Kaiserin von Russland.

      Berlin: Gropius Brothers, [1829]. - 2 Volumes. oblong folio. pp. 1 p.l., [13]. lithographed title, 2 hand-coloured lithographed views on India paper, mounted, 9 hand-coloured lithographed plates on India paper, mounted, 1 hand-coloured lithographed interior view, & 11 (of 12) hand-coloured lithographed views of the procession. original printed bds. with new cloth ties, rebacked (edges rubbed, mounting sheets for the 9 middle plates browned, light soiling & spotting to outer edge of first processional plate). First Edition of this record of the grand celebrations which took place in honour of the birthday of Alexandra Fyodorovna, Empress of Russia (wife of Czar Nicholas I), born Princess Charlotte of Prussia [1798-1860], who was then in Berlin on a visit to her father, King Frederick William III. The theme of the celebrations was the mediaeval legend of 'Blanchefleur' or the White Rose, a nickname given to Alexandra in childhood. Eleven of the fine hand-coloured plates by Ernst Gärtner, Julius Schoppe, Heinrich Stürmer, and Theodor Hosemann depict the procession of the participants in the tournament regaled in full mediaeval costume. Others depict exterior and interior views of the palace, including one showing the ball in the Grotto Hall, and allegorical tableaux of the Seasons, Virtues and other subjects. The two copies that have appeared at auction in the last fifteen years were lacking one of the 9 middle plates. The present copy is unusual in that all of the plates are hand-coloured rather than just the processional plates and the interior view. Lipperheide Sbb31.

        MEMOIRS OF JAMES HARDY VAUX, a swindler and thief; now transported to New South Wales for the second time, and for life. Written by himself. Second edition,

      London: Whittaker Treacher and Arnot 1829 - 12mo, (155x99mm), [3 adverts],[1 blank],xxiv,288p. some very slight and occasional spotting. Original green calico cloth, some slight fading, the backstrip discoloured and with a leather back-label, preserved in a modern custom-made solander box. (Ferguson Bibliography of Australia 1305) A rare edition of what was, in its first edition of 1819, the first Australian autobiography. It recounts the life and wrong-doings of the author and his subsequent life in the convict colony. This so-called second edition, which retains the introduction by Barron Field, appears to be a re-issue of the 1827 edition that had been published in London by Hunt and Clarke and numbered volume 13 in their series of 'autobiographical works that offer a collection of the most instructive and amusing lives ever published.' The advertisements that precede the text of this book, list the volumes in the series and retain Hunt & Clarke's number of 13, as does the series title which precedes the volume title. However, we suspect that between 1827 and 1829 Whittaker, Treacher and Arnot took over the series from Hunt & Clarke and re-issued the volume under their own imprint. Whittaker &c. issued another edition in 1830 with slightly different pagination and re-numbered it as volume 17 of the series. Copac locates no copies of this edition in any UK library, indeed we can locate only two Australian libraries which hold copies. As an added attraction this volume is an early example of a publisher's edition binding in calico cloth, having been published - according to the publisher's advert - in 'a fine library edition at 6 shillings the volume.' Please note that the advised postage is based on an average book, if necessary the postage will be reduced to the correct amount and you will be notified by email.

        MISSISSIPPI KITE.

      London. . 1829 - Double elephant folio print, framed. Near fine condition. Audubon's depiction of the Mississippi Kite appeared in 1829 as plate 117 in THE BIRDS OF AMERICA. This plate aroused considerable debate at the time, because many natural historians were quick to note the similarity between the lower of the two birds shown and the rendering of the same species in Alexander Wilson's AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY, issued in 1809. Audubon was detested by Wilson's loyalists in the Philadelphia scientific establishment of the day. Lead by George Ord, who had completed Wilson's work after his death, they felt that Audubon over- romanticized his work and had no scientific ability. They seized on this obvious cribbing from Wilson as another example of Audubon's perfidy. Indeed, it is difficult to understand why Audubon found it necessary to lift a bird portrait from Wilson, so vastly his inferior as an artist. The other kite shown provides a magnificent contrast, demonstrating how extraordinary Audubon's talents were.

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

      S. W. Fores, 41 Piccadilly,, London: 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. Eldon drives the coach in which George IV is the passenger. Eldon's opposition to the Catholic Relief Bill gathers momentum as Wellington's 'Emancipation Carrier', portrayed as a two-wheeled cart, crashes. 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.

        Big trees, 1903

      - Thomas Hill (1829-1908) Big trees, 1903 Signed and dated lower right: “T. Hill/1903” Oil on canvas Canvas size: 46 ¼” x 30” Framed size: 55” x 38 ¾” Provenance: Mrs. Joseph O. Tobin to Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Mrs. Joseph O. Tobin was the granddaughter of Michael Henry de Young, founder of the San Francisco Chronicle and benefactor of the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum. Thomas Hill was born in Birmingham, England on September 11, 1829. After immigrating to the United States in 1844, Hill settled with his family in Taunton, Massachusetts. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts under the tutelage of Peter F. Rothermel. Hill painted in Massachusetts throughout the 1850’s, often in the White Mountains of New Hampshire with a group of artists that included Asher B. Durand, George Inness, Benjamin Champney, Albert Bierstadt, Virgil Williams and his brother Edward Hill. For health reasons he was forced to seek a milder climate and, with wife and children, made the overland trek to California in 1861. After settling in San Francisco, Hill advertised himself as a portrait painter. In 1862 Hill made his first trip to Yosemite accompanied by the artists William Keith and Virgil Williams. In 1866 Hill exhibited his Yosemite scenes at the National Academy, and later that year, traveled to Paris where he was a pupil of Paul Meyerheim and exhibited at the Universal Expo. Returning to the United States, Hill stayed in Boston from 1868 to 1970, but returned to San Francisco in 1871. He hit his artistic stride in California during the 1870s, beginning with his first grandiose painting, The Yosemite Valley, which was published as a chromolithograph by Prang. With Frederic Whymper, Hill was a founding member of the San Francisco Art Association, and in 1873, he became a member of the Bohemian Club, a men’s organization dedicated to cultural enhancement. Hill built a studio in Yosemite in 1883, which would become his main residence for rest of his life (his wife maintained the family home in Oakland). During the winter months Hill resided in San Francisco where he maintained a studio in the Flood Building. When Virgil Williams died in 1886, Hill became interim director of the School of Design until a new director could be found. During the 1870s and 1880s, Hill’s work was in demand and brought very high prices; however, during the later part of his life his work did not command the interest that it once had due to changing art styles. Like Bierstadt, his panoramic landscapes were considered old-fashioned and for half a century or more his work was in eclipse. Today his work has regained its proper stature and he is considered a giant in American art. His work can currently be viewed in the collections of the de Young museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Oakland Museum of California and the White House, among many other collections. The trees illustrated in Thomas Hill’s “Big Tress, 1903” are giant Sequioas in the Mariposa Grove near Wawaona, in the southernmost part of Yosemite National Park . Mariposa Grove was first visited by non-natives in 1857, when found by Galen Clark and Milton Mann. The grove contains about 500 mature giant Sequoias, some dating to over 2000 years old. The “Wawona Tunnel Tree,” as illustrated in Hill’s painting, had a tunnel cut through it in 1881 to allow horse-drawn carriages and eventually automobiles to pass through it. Since falling in 1969, this tree has since been called the “Fallen Tunnel Tree”. The tree in the foreground of the painting is called the Vermont Tree. These trees, along with the others in the Mariposa Grove, have been tourist attractions since the late 19th century and continue to be so today.
