        The French cook, a system of fashionable and economical cookery, adapted to the use of English families ... tenth edition, corrected and enlarged, with an appendix of observations on the meals of the day

      London: John Ebers & Co., 1829. 12mo (19.5 cm, 7.7"). Frontis., lxxii, 485, [3] pp.; illus. Formal French cuisine laid out for an English audience by the celebrated Monsieur Ude, who cooked for Louis XVI, the Earl of Sefton, and the Duke of York. This classic cookbook, groundbreaking in its day, was first published in 1813 and is here in its tenth edition, with a frontispiece portrait of the author engraved by A. Deane after a Maclise drawing, and nine pages depicting bills of fare as they should be arranged at table. The work is peppered liberally with French terms (of which a vocabulary is provided) and with elaborate techniques that seem likely to have been in use in the most elegant kitchens (but not necessarily beyond the reach of less elite aspirants). => Byron swiped the names of many of Ude's dishes for use in canto 15, stanzas 62–74 of "Don Juan," and indeed two of Ude's suggested course progressions for stanza 63 (see p. 426). Bitting 471; Cagle 1037 (for first ed.); Hazlitt 167; Oxford 142. 20th-century half scarlet morocco and marbled paper–covered sides, spine with gilt-stamped title and raised bands ruled in black and gilt; spine slightly sunned and minor shelf wear (only) to edges and corners. Top edge gilt. Frontispiece and first two leaves with old waterstaining to lower inner margins, and frontispiece browned; pages otherwise only very faintly age-toned, with scattered light spotting. => A solid, generally clean, and definitely attractive copy.

        The Kangaroos in the Collection of Earl Darnley, Cobham Park

      London,: Thomas Kelly, 1 May, 1829.. Engraving, 175 x 265 mm., trimmed inside the plate-mark on three sides, but the image complete including caption and imprint; a few marks, very good. Interesting early depiction of kangaroos brought to England and given to the private collection of the Earl of Darnley: although the plate was made in 1829, the actual animals were some of those brought back alive from Australia by William Bligh when he returned to England on the Hindostan after being ousted from the governorship in 1810.The animals were given to John Bligh, 4th Earl of Darnley (1767-1831), a British peer and cricketer; his family house Cobham Hall near Gravesend in Kent is one of the grandest houses in the county. William Bligh and the Earl were certainly known to each other: an 1805 letter from William Bligh written just before he left for New South Wales in 1805 is in the Mitchell Library (perhaps there was a Bligh family connection between the two?).The plate is taken from Robert Huish's The Wonders of the Animal Kingdom (1830), where it is noted that the kangaroos 'appeared for some time to endure the climate of Cobham Hall with every expectation of their being eventually naturalized; from some cause, however, not yet ascertained, they died a few months after their portrait was taken...'. Huish's note concludes with the comment that nonetheless 'some very fine specimens of them are still to be seen in the collection of his Majesty, at Windsor, and in some of the itinerant menageries.'.

        HISTORIA GENERAL DE LAS COSAS DE NUEVA ESPAÑA

      Mexico: Impr. del ciudadano Alejandro Valdés, 1829-1830.. Three volumes. [6],xx,277,xxxi,279-350,[7]; [6],397,xlvi,[9]; [4],339[4]pp. Lacks folding plate in first volume. Small quarto. Later brown half morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt. Rubbed at extremities; boards lightly scuffed. Bookplate on front pastedowns. Bright and clean internally. Very good. Father Sahagún's life as a teacher of boys from high-ranking Nahautl families and as a student of their language and history is well known, and long has been. But the original 16th-century manuscript of his history of pre- Conquest Mexico in Nahuatl lay unpublished in the Laurentian library in Florence, Italy, until the 20th century; and his own translation of it suffered a similar fate until the great 19th-century historian Carlos María de Bustamante found that manuscript in the library of the monastery of San Francisco de Tolosa de Navana, and published this edition. Father Sahagún's native students and their families clearly "opened up," as we would now say, to him and his project of recording the facts and lore of their clearly then- vanishing culture in their own language; and his text brims with firsthand information gleaned from them on astronomy, astrology, myths, social structure, language, history, gemology, warfare, and literature, to single out a few fields of study. Bustamante added explanatory notes and amplifying texts from collateral sources such as Alvaro de Tezozomoc, Sigüenza y Góngora, and his own writings. PALAU 284994. FIELD 1438. SABIN 74950. H.

        MEMORIA PRESENTADA AL HONORABLE CONGRESO SEGUNDO CONSTITUCIONAL DE CHIHUAHUA POR EL SECRETARIO DEL DESPACHO DE GOBIERNO SOBRE EL ESTADO DE LA ADMINISTRACION PUBLICA

      [Chihuahua]: Imprenta del supremo gobierno del estado á cargo de José Sabino Cano, 1829.. [2],32,[8]pp. plus one folding letterpress table. Small folio. Stitched as issued. Minor soiling. Near fine. A rare, early, and interesting report that reviews all the different issues surrounding the administration of this northern Mexican state. Among topics covered are police forces (inadequate), education, Native American raids, hospitals, education, health and vaccination, mining, an expedition to establish boundaries, etc. Given the shortcomings pointed out, it is obvious that Chihuahua does not have enough money to cover all its needs, as might be expected from a this relatively poor region. Printing was established in Chihuahua in 1824, and a discussion herein of printing notes that the press is due to receive a major upgrade of equipment. Interestingly, this handsome imprint makes clear that the press office is well-equipped and the operators are not amateurs. No other copies located.

      London: Mr. Davis and Moon, Boys & Graves, 1 December 1829. Mezzotint, by W. Giller, marked 'Proof' in lower right corner. 11 5/8 x 15 3/4 inches. 13 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches. Open letter proof after Davis, animal painter to King George IV and Queen Victoria.

"Richard Barrett Davis was the son of Richard Davis, huntsman to George III's private harriers. Initially self-taught, his ability came to the notice of the King who arranged for him to be given proper training...

        TRAVELS IN NORTH AMERICA, OR THE YEARS 1827 AND 1828

      Edinburgh, London: Cadell and Company, Simpkin and Marshall, 1829. Three volumes uniformly-bound. Marbled endpapers.Panelled spines. Black leather labels. Gilt panel designs. Spines show some chipping, spine extremities frayed. Old library paper spot-label top of Volume 1 with number in old ink. Hand-colored fold-out map as frontispiece to Volume 1. It has been tape-repaired on the reverse, closed 2" tear at bottom of one fold. (See photo). Volume 3 has a full-page map of the Mississippi River on p.359 and a large fold-out chart showing state populations, numbers of whites and blacks, revenues and expenses. These three book are FROM THE LIBRARY OF SAMUEL LANGHORNE CLEMENS/MARK TWAIN. Each book has a book-plate on the front pastedown signed in ink by Albert Bigelow Paine, Twain's literary executor'stating that the books were sold at auction in February, 1911, by the Anderson Auction Company of New York. Of significant interest is the pencil notation on page 133 of the first volume which discusses the city of Syracuse, New York. The notation says "great city". We have compared the notation with a number of Twain's hand-written notes and letters. It matches his writing idiosycrasies perfectly. There are further marginal pencil paragraph highlighters, mainly in Volume 3. They reference specific information on the Mississippi River, steamboat navigation, how to build a raft, among others. We can make a point here that Mr. Clemens used this information, as well as his vast knowledge of the subjects, in his writings of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn and the Mississippi River. Granted, this is speculation but very plausible!! Quite an interesting association piece suitable for any bibliophile detective. 421,432, 436pp. See Howes H47, Clark Old South 3:48. .

        Map of the County of Cornwall from an Actual Survey

      London, 1829. Map. Copper engraving, 63 x 73 cms, original hand-colour with black and white vignette of St Michael’s Mount, blank verso. The Greenwood brothers were land-surveyors from Yorkshire who compiled one of the last independent large-scale county atlases, in the face of growing competition from the Ordnance Survey. The maps are both decorative and detailed but, as Worms reveals in ‘British Map Engravers’ the project was not a financial success: in 1834 Christopher was imprisoned for debt and the engraved plates soon passed to other hands.

        Sketches of Naval Life : With Notices of Men, Manners and Scenery on the Shores of the Mediterranean, in a Series of Letters From the Brandywine and Constitution Frigates; Volume 1

      H. Howe, 1829. Hardcover. Very Good. Volume One. 8vo. Quarter bound in contemporary black calf-skin leather. Corners bound. White marbled boards. Tight binding and solid boards. Minor shelf wear. Slight rubbing to cover. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal toning. Frontispiece fold-out map on of the Mediterranean in very good condition with minimal toning. Minor wrinkling to map. Small tear on hinge. Contains letters sent to George Jones from sailors stationed on the Frigates Brandywine and Constitution from August 19, 1825 to May 15, 1827. The composed letters talk about the the description of the Brandywine and Constitution; Sea-faring life in the early U.S. Navy, including ship duties, martial law and the various stations of the naval hierarchy onboard ships in the 19th-century. The USS Brandywine was frigate that returned General Lafayette back to France after his Grand Tour of the United States and is talked about in Letter 5. After a stormy three weeks at sea, the warship arrived off Le Havre, France, early in October; and, following some initial trepidation about the government’s attitude toward Lafayette’s return to a France now ruled by the ultra reactionary King Charles X, Brandywine's honored passenger and her captain disembarked, the former to return home and the latter to tour the country for six months to study shipyards, ship design and other naval matters. The Brandywine left Le Havre that same day to join the United States Mediterranean Squadron. Up to February 1826, The Brandywine was called back and the author decided to join the crew of the USS Constitution. The remaining letters of the book described the populace of Greece's ever-mounting anger towards Turkish rule and American sympathy towards the sovereignty of the Greek people. The author also talks about the surrounding Greek seaside, ruins of temples with details plates and local customs. An book of great value, immersed in historical details from a bygone era of the United States and the world at large. A well preserved volume in very good condition.

        Samling af 50 smaae Landkort I TrÊsnit til Brug for Skolerne paa Landet

      [Denmark],: S.E. Holm, 1829.. Small quarto, with 50 leaves of wood-engraved maps, handcoloured in outline; a very good copy in contemporary half calf, some wear to boards and extremities, slight worming at top of gutter barely affecting some of the plates, and some inoffensive early manuscript annotations.. A very rare Danish atlas for schools, the first such work published, with a wonderful double-page world map, and another plate depicting Australia and the Pacific.This simple but charming work was published by a Danish school teacher called S¯ren Eliasen Holm, who himself paid for the printing and publishing of the atlas. His main purpose was to give poor village children an idea about geography, and it was much republished in newer, often improved, editions. Not much is known about the enigmatic Holm, although the extraordinary and disturbing fact is recorded that he was banned from the education system in 1814 after he castrated himself to avoid having more children.As would be expected, many of the maps are devoted to Scandinavia and Europe, including 28 of various regions of Denmark and the Danish Islands. The atlas does include several attractive plates of the rest of the world: apart from the Australian map, there are also maps of individual European countries including Great Britain, France, and Turkey, as well as the continent of Africa, and the Americas (this last bound in upside down). Most of the maps are signed by Holm, and dated from 1818 to 1826; the Australian map is dated 1823.The atlas was released in numerous edition between 1819 and at least 1840, with the online catalogues of Det Kongelige Bibliotek recording a series of copies. The work is not, however, well known outside Denmark, with OCLC unable to list any copies of any edition.Bibl. Dan. II, 391.

Each volume with index except for No. 6: ÒAlterations on the Tariff Duties on Exports 1820 to 1824Ó.. Blue paper-covered boards, originally with leather spines (leather almost completely worn away); handwritten titles with dates pasted to front covers..

Script is. slightly faded but legible in all volumes. Library discard stamp on. versos of covers of Vols. A and 8 and on ffep of Vol. 4. Overall, a. Good set.. When Jean Bernadotte was crowned Charles XIV King of Sweden and Norway in 1818 he began to introduce the ecomomic policies that would revitalize the country and move it towards industrialization. His government encouraged free enterprise and industrialized manufacturing, which soon helped to establish Sweden as a more powerful trade partner for major European countries and especially Great Britain. Sweden already had a complicated customs system in place that charged major levies on foreign trade. Charles XIV improved and promoted the tariff system, soon paid off all foreign debt, increased the national revenue, and greatly enriched his government. His next step was to develop a policy of peace abroad and beneficial diplomatic relations with SwedenÕs trade partners. Benjamin Bloomfield, 1st Baron Bloomfield, was EnglandÕs answer to blunt the edge of SwedenÕs aggressive customs policies. Named by his friend and confidant the Prince Regent as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to the Court of Bernadotte, Lord Bloomfield arrived in Stockholm in 1823. He apparently used these notebooks as a reference, as he and his legation took steps to influence the customs process to EnglandÕs advantage. As he took up his official duties in Stockholm, Lord Bloomfield encountered a wilderness of commercial negotiations that interrupted and particularly discouraged the trade of British manufactured goods for SwedenÕs valued bar iron, Baltic timber and oats. Fortunately, King Charles XIV appreciated the manners and conversation of a foreign minister who had spent the best part of his life at the center of a brilliant court. In no time, Lord BloomfieldÕs work seemed to consist chiefly of feasting, dancing and drinking champagne. He and Bernadotte became friends, cementing the harmony of the two nations, and as Lord Bloomfield hinted at the justice of rescinding the harder regulations, he began to establish a freer and more favorable importation system. The delighted King George IV noted that Lord BloomfieldÕs patriotism was unbounded. George Canning, the brilliant politician and orator, was BritainÕs head of the Foreign Office at the time of Lord BloomfieldÕs mission to Sweden. Lord BloomfieldÕs dispatches of which these notebooks were a part, were directed and addressed to him and his officers, and it was his liberal polices that Lord Bloomfield carried out. Most volumes contain columns of individual commodities and their tariffs printed in Swedish, with the same commodities, amounts traded in import and export, and their costs handwritten in English translation on opposite pages. The ordinances and proclamations are handwritten in English. There are no official court seals, but spaces are left for them. Although at this time the Swedish government was working toward a declaration against slave trafficking, the slave trade was still flourishing in the Caribbean. King George, Lord Canning and Lord Bloomfield were determined to create an alliance between their countries for the suppression of the slave trade.These lists do not mention slaves as a commodity, but laid in to the volume lettered A is a proclamation regulating slave trading in Saint-Barthelemy, a Swedish-owned island with a thriving duty-free port. The listed commodities vary from volume to volume and reveal the vast quantity of goods in almost all cases traveling between countries by ship: a single page from one notebook includes tariffs for arrack, brandy, coffee, glass, rum, wood (spars, staves), woven goods, ribbons of silk and velvet, cinnamon, cardamom, currants, fennel seeds, almonds, vanilla, liquorice, ginger, cloves, pepper, porcelain, tea, oranges, agates, alabaster, feathers, tiles and bricks, furs and hides, cannon, and gun stocks. Contents of Notebooks by Volume: No.2: On Exports of Sweden to Foreign Parts Published the 17 of April 1799 and continued in force to the year 1816. No. 3:.On Imports of Sweden from Foreign Parts Ð published the 20 March 1816 and continued in force to the year 1824.

        EHON AZUMA NO TEBURI

      1829. [EHON] Onishi Chinnen, artist. EHON AZUMA NO TEBURI. Edo: Kobayashi Shimbei & Osakaya Gembei, Bunsei 12 [1829]. 27.8 x 18.6 cm, string bound Japanese-style, fukuro toji, (replacement?) blue paper covers with blindprinted geometric patterning. The title slip is missing as well, but otherwise this copy collates identically with the copy in Mitchell, p.214. See Hillier, volume 2, pp. 768-70, in which he describes Chinnen's SONAN GAFU & this volume, the AZUMA NO TEBURI, as being "among the best known and most admired of all Japanese books". The 25 double page color prints of genre scenes in Edo done in Chinnen's inimitable Shijo style are very well printed. The colors are excellent and are those of an early printing. This is a very handsome book and an important cornerstone item for any ehon collection - Chinnen only produced two major works of book illustration, this and the iconic SONAN GAFU. Complete.

        Yellow-Billed Cuckoo [Pl. 2]

      London: 1829. Hand-coloured engraving with etching by W. H. Lizars, retouched and aquatint added by R. Havell, Jr., 1829, paper watermarked "J. Whatman/1833". 25 ¼ x 33 3/8 inches. From the first edition of "The Birds of America." One of Audubon's finest and most lively images from the very early days of the production of his masterpiece. The legend "No.1" in the top left of the plate indicates that the first issue of this image was included in the first of the periodic parts that were to appear between 1827 and 1838. This image was first issued by Lizars of Edinburgh, the plate was then transferred to Havell in London who added aquatint and re- issued it. There were two variants issued by Lizars and two by Havell, the present copy with the "Z" in "Coccyzus" and Havell mentioned in the imprint is the second variant of the second issue. "This bird is not abundant anywhere, and yet is found very far north. I have met with it in all the low grounds and damp places in Massachusetts, along the line of Upper Canada, pretty high on the Mississippi and Arkansas, and in every state between these boundary lines. Its appearance in the State of New York seldom takes place before the beginning of May, and at Green Bay not until the middle of that month...They feed on insects...as well as berries of many kinds, evincing a special predilection for the mulberry. In the autumn they eat many grapes, and I have seen them supporting themselves by a momentary motion of their wings opposite a bunch, as if selecting the ripest, when they would seize it and return to a branch, repeating their visits in this manner until satiated" (J. J. Audubon, The Birds of America, New York & Philadelphia: 1840-1844, vol. IV, pp.294-295). "Old World cuckoos lay their eggs in the nests of other birds. New World cuckoos do not...Cuckoos are slender...birds, more often heard than seen...Country people, believing that their vocalizations signaled rain, once called them 'rain crows.' In this spirited composition, one of his finest, Audubon has shown a pair of yellow-billed cuckoos in a fruiting paw-paw. One has caught a tiger swallowtail...One of Audubon's correspondents noted that cuckoos are much more numerous some years than others, a fact that has been confirmed fully since then. It is believed that cyclic outbreaks of tent caterpillars coincide with these fluctuations" (R. T. & V. M. Peterson, Audubon's Birds of America, London: 1981, no. 232). Susanne M. Low, A Guide to Audubon's Birds of America, New Haven & New York: 2002, p.29 (fourth variant of four).
