      Paris: Delpech, 1829. - "Then" and "Now"—Eighteen Scarce Hand-Colored Lithographed Plates By Le Maitre MonnierMONNIER, Henri. Jadis et aujourd’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’hui. Etude d’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’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’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'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.

        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.

        COLLECTION OF FRENCH NAVIGATIONAL MANUSCRIPTS CONCERNING THE ANTILLES AND SURROUNDING AREA].

      [Np, but probably Paris. ca. ]. 1829 - Three manuscripts. 13; 17; 17pp. plus manuscript map. The first two manuscripts in folio, the third in octavo. All, save the single-sheet map, in self-wrappers. Uniformly bright and clean. Very good. In a cloth clamshell case. An interesting early 19th-century assemblage of manuscripts concerning navigation near the Antilles and Venezuela. They are: 1) ROUTIER DES ANTILLES, DES CÔTES DE TERRE FERME ET DE CELLES DU GOLFE DE MEXIQUE, TRADUIT DE ESPAGNOL. Translated from the Spanish by ensign J.C. Chaucheprat, this manuscript offers a description of the Cartegena coast and lengthy navigational directions for entering Veracruz. A version of Chaucheprat's text was published as early as 1842. OCLC 17658994 (ref). 2) DESCRIPTION DE LA PARTIE DE LA CÔTE FERME QUI S'ÉTEND DEPUIS LA POINTE ESPADA JUSQU'À CARTHAGÈNE. 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]. Executed in what was known as "Chinese ink," this map offers what is, essentially, a navigational chart for the waters surrounding the island, including various hazards and a scale. A delightful collection of maritime manuscripts, obviously executed with great care. Good evidence of the navigational sources with which French pilots were familiar.

        CHRONICLE OF THE CONQUEST OF GRANADA. From the Mss. of Fray Antonio Agapida

      London John Murray 1829 - 2 volumes. First English edition. 8vo, antique three-quarter red calf over marbled boards. The spines with gilt stippled raised bands creating compartments framed in both gilt and blind, with two blue morocco labels ruled and lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. xv, 407; viii, 421 pp. A very nice set, internally fine and fresh and very clean, the bindings sturdy and attractive with only a bit of expected age evidence. FIRST EDITION, THE ENGLISH ISSUE, which appeared only a few weeks after the American. In spite of the near simultaneous release, the text of this English edition does differ a bit from its American counterpart. Despite Irving's use of an imaginary chronicler, Agapida, who’s dialog livens up the flavor of the text, the CONQUEST OF GRANADA was the product of careful historical research in Madrid. Irving was serving as a titular diplomat, a post which gave him access to considerable resources as well as access to the most important inner social circles. It remains an excellent history on the expulsion of the Moors from Spain. This work, along with his THE ALHAMBRA highlights both Irving’s scholarly abilities and his eloquent writing style.

        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.

        The Celtic Druids Or, An Attempt To Shew, That The Druids Were The Priests Of Oriental Colonies Who Emigrated From India, and were the introducers of the first or Cadmean system of letters, and the builders of Stonehenge, of Carnac, and of other cyclopean works, in Asia and Europe

      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.

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.
