        Le Crabe Ourson - Cancer Ursinus

      [ca. 1823-1829] - FREMINVILLE, Christophe-Paulin de La Poix, chevalier de (1787-1848). Le crabe Ourson - Cancer Ursinus, [ca. 1823-1829]. Single sheet, matted ( 4 1/8 x 6 1/4 inches). Fine original pen and ink and watercolour drawing inscribed by Freminville beneath the image of the crab "Le crabe Ourson." Beneath that is inscribed " Cancer Ursinus." To the right of these inscriptions is inscribed "Cotes orientale d'Afrique." Freminville was the son of a naval architect. He chose a naval career after hearing a lecture on Captain Cook's voyages. At the age of 15, Freminville joined the navy and traveled to Haiti under General LeClerc. While there he discovered the great ray, native to the bay of Port-au-Prince, which came to bear his name. In 1819 he published a book with Thomas M'Keevor called "A voyage to Hudson's Bay during the summer of 1812: containing a particular account of the icebergs and other phenomena which present themselves in those regions; also, a description of the Esquimeaux and North American Indians; their manners, customs, dress, language, &c." which was pubilshed in London and Printed by Sir Richard Phillips and Co. By the time he retired in the 1830's, Freminville had spent most of his life at sea, traveling from Iceland and Russia to Central and South America to West Africa and the Antilles, and drawing specimens of exotic species. He enjoyed much fame in his own day as an antiquary and writer of travel accounts, but he died having produced only one book on natural history subjects, Considerations Generales sur les Moeurs et les Habitudes des Serpens (1842). The drawings that Freminville left behind were intended for a half-dozen other related works on exotic butterflies, fish, mollusks, snakes, and other reptiles, but these books remained unrealized.

        ALS to her daughter Janet Ranken

      [Sydney or Scotland]: 21 August, 1829. Old folds.. Three-page ALS in a neat but unfinished hand, 228 x 185 mm., original red wax seal, stamp for the Sydney post office but not otherwise marked, very good. A charming and rather rare example of a woman writing from Sydney in the 1820s. The letter was written to Janet Ranken, the wife of the important Bathurst pastoralist and settler George, one of the first to take up land in the region. On George Ranken see a long entry in the Australian Dictionary of Biography, and the well-regarded 1916 memoir The Rankens of Bathurst. The only mystery about the letter is whether it was written in Scotland (where it is probably likely that Mrs Hutchison was still living) or Sydney (the sealed letter has only one postal stamp, for Sydney): was Janet Ranken's mother also an immigrant to New South Wales?The letter was written to her daughted Janet "Jenny" Ranken Hutchison, who had then been living in Bathurst for several years, having married the pastoralist George Ranken in May 1821 before the newlyweds sailed on the Lusitana. Ranken leased property from John Piper in Sydney, and was one of the first to be granted land in Bathurst, naming his property Kelloshiel, to which property they moved in 1823.This letter dates from 1829, when the Rankens were firmly settled in Bathurst, and her mother opens with some pointed chiding of young Mrs. Ranken, who has let her duties as a correspondent slip, the more so as reports have reached her that she George have had a new child, a daughter, as long ago as December 1828, and yet "not one word from George or you" (the lack of any mail "was not the way you used to do on similar occasions" notes her mother primly). Mrs Hutchison includes an interesting aside that "you have often spoek of coming home but so long as you are so [word] in the family way I do not see how it is posable".The rest of the long letter is taken up with fabulous gossip regarding all of their acquaintance, all told in a breathless and sometimes startlingly direct style: "we had Jessie and Tibbie Taylors here lately about a week", starts one passage, "as poor and as proud as ever" A mutual friend Marion has got word of the death of her husband, "but I am one among many who does not believe he is dead." Her son Peter is up to his old tricks ("if he knew the anxiety that his old Mother and Sisters are in about him"), and her daughters are "all in the usual (?) way often complaining tho nothing deadly I think amongst them". A mysterious Mr. Smith, well known to Janet, "is nothing at all going about like an old beggar man, patching and working with Bees…". While the uppity "Mr and Mrs Otto have now got - to the astonishment of the natives - a gigg, but tho it is now nine months since she got it she has been just once in it." Their niece Jean Otto is down to buy her "wedding draws" (?), and is to be married to an "active steady young man a writer" who had stayed many times with the Otto family. And so on.The letter concludes with a return to her heartfelt wish that she could know about what is happening in Bathurst: "I wish you would let me know what you are doing with your boys and how many is begun to learn and what is Miss Rankin like and all about them."A short obituary of Janet Ranken was published in the Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser for 25 October 1883, noting that she had initially stayed in Petersham while Kelloshiel was being laid out, but not noting who she was living with at that time - it is possible that the letter, that is, dates from Petersham.

        The Whitesborough Patent: manuscript ledger recording sale of land in Delaware County NY.

      1829 - 1844.. Hardcover. Good + condition. A fascinating record of land speculation and ownership of New York state land as it passed from the original British patent holders, including Henry White (British, d. 1786) based in New York City, to Ebenezer Foote (1756 - 1829), who fought in the Revolutionary War. Foote saw action at Bunker Hill, survived Valley Forge, and was captured and escaped from captivity in Bridewell Prison in New York City. After the war Foote became a merchant, land agent, politician, judge and a founder of Delaware County. The Whitesborough patent was granted to several individuals including Henry White, a loyalist, New York City merchant, and member of the Council authorizing the granting of patents. He chose the upstate land (ca. 1770s) "from an idea that it might in remote times be beneficial to his children", perhaps thinking of a time when he and his children might have to flee the city. White remained a loyalist throughout the war, returning to England. His land in New York was confiscated by the state in 1779, whereupon he appealed to the Commissioners of Forfeiture for compensation, with limited results. He died in England in 1786.Ebenezer Foote, who purchased the land in 1799, was very active after the war, serving as member of the New York legislature (1792, 1794, 1796, and 1797) and working in the mercantile business in Newburgh and Ulster County until 1797. Foote helped found Delaware County and moved to Delhi.Foote served as the first county clerk of Delaware County (1798 - 1801), as a member of the state senate (1798 - 1802), and conducted an extensive land agency. In 1810, Foote was appointed the judge of the New York Court of Common Pleas, serving until 1816, and then again, from 1828 until his death in 1829.The ledger records Charles Hathaway acting as agent. William Sherriff, whose name is noted here, was one of the original Whitesborough patent holders, and had served as Quarter Master General for the British in the Revolution. A notice signed by Hathaway at the title page states, "Account of lands sold by the late Ebenezer Foote, and of lands contracted by Charles Hathaway, in the Whitesborough patent, for Capt. Wm. H. Shirriff (sic) the proprietor, rendered in May 1844".The ledger includes an alphabetical index of the names of the land purchasers, followed with the lot numbers, acreage, purchase price and payments recorded, on the first 95 double pages. Beginning with earliest date of 1816 and carrying through to 1850. At the rear of the volume a manuscript folding map shows the location of the lots. Map unfolds to 26" wide x 9 1/2", and extends to the Delaware River in the northeast, and showing lots numbered 1 through 40. It appears that 9 of the 40 lots have been subdivided, and new owners recorded. 8vo, 95 hand numbered pages are completed in a beautiful hand calligraphy, with about 20 double pages left blank. Faint foredge tide mark. Full brown calf with blind stamped decoration, gilt title at spine, "Ledger".

Thirty seven of only 52 issues of the literary magazine published by the faculty of the University, with the ownership signature on several numbers of Judge William H.

An early look at the perspective of the faculty of Mr. Jefferson's University, which includes an article on Australian advertising and Australian newspaper reporting in the very first number. The article cites examples of amusing Australian advertising and reporting, and goes on to note, "there is no reason, indeed, why that distant country should not hereafter be a seat of the Muses. It is situated in a heavenly climate, and is possessed of the most singular anomalies especially in the animal and vegetable parts of the creation -- birds without wings, as large as Deer, their bodies covered with hair instead of feathers ....where the swans are black and the eagles white: where the Kangaroo, an animal between the squirrel and the Deer, has five claws on its fore paws and three talons on its hind legs, like a bird and yet hops on its tail: where the Mole (Ornithorhynchus paradoxus), lays eggs, and has a Duck's bill ..." (p8). The Virginia Literary Museum commenced in June 1829, and concluded in May of 1830. This volume includes the first number (the first 2 pages in facsimile), and covers a wide range of international and local topics, including slavery, Jefferson's Memoir and correspondence, education, the Virginia state constitutional convention, sugar, coffee, gold mining in North Carolina, encouraging manufacturing in Virginia and Australian advertising and newspaper reporting. Includes a multipart series titled "The Policy of Encouraging Manufactures", which supports among other views the notion of Virginia manufacturing capacity being equal to that of Great Britain (p60). The author goes on to counter the objection to the use of slave labor in manufacturing, citing as evidence: "as further proof that slaves are not unfit for the operations of a manufactory, it may be mentioned that children are more or less employed in all of them, and they cannot be supposed to have more motives to labour than slaves, more care, or foresight, or interest in the success of their labours." (p61) The Volume I Numbers included here are: 1 (facsimile pages 1-2), 4 - 13, 15, 16, 18 - 27, 29, 31 and 40. 8vo, each Number approximately 16pp. Gray modern cloth binding, title printed at spine. Library label at front paste down, and library stamps. Inner hinges starting. A bit ruffled at edges, occasional fox spotting, and the last page of Number 31 torn horizontally with no loss of text.

        The Cambrian Magazine Volumes I to V

      33 - London - H Hughes, 1829 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. The first fivevolumes of the Welsh magazine The Cambrian. Direct from the Regency library of Elizabeth Greenly, later Lady Elizabeth Coffin Greenly. Elizabeth Greenly, born at Titley Court, Herefordshire, was a noted and varied collector. She kept prolific diaries from 1784 until her death in 1839 which included her responses to current events and occasions in her daily life. Among the diaries many names and anecdotes of celebrities of the time appear, including Lord Byron, Marie Antoinette, Mary Wollstonecraft and Hannah More. She was known to comment on customs of foreign countries to which she and her friends had travelled, and had a keen interest in scientific discoveries and advancements including medicine and archaeology. The Greenly library contents show Elizabeth Greenly's numerous interests including: Welsh causes, Science, topography, travel, Bibliana and literature, particularly female poets. The library contains many first editions of contemporary works, and many are signed or contain her bookplate. The library contained over 1000 volumes which show the diversity and depth of her interests and give an insight into the life of this fascinating collector. Volumes II-IVhaveLady Greenlylisted as a subsriber. To the first volume she hasadded her name to the listof subscribers, implying she became a subsriber after printing. With 1 folding plate to volume I and 1 folding plate to volume II and with some vignettes to volumes I, II, III, IV and V. The Cambrianwas a quarterly magazine which published articles, novels, poetry and songs about Wales and by Welsh writers. A different Cambrian magazine was published later in the nineteenth century which was devoted to the interests of Welsh-American people. Although the editors of these volumes ofThe Cambrianare not listed anywhere in the volumes some people have attributed it to Thomas Price otherwise known as Carnhuanawc. Price was a historian and majorWelsh literary figure in the early 19th century. He contributed to many popular journals and revived the Eisteddfod,the Welsh festival of literature, music and performance. Condition: In half vellum bindings with paper covered boards.

Volumes II, III, IV and V have spotting to the first and last few pages withscattered spots throughout. Overall: VERYGOOD.

        Théâtre Allemand. Salle du Théâtre Royal italien. Fidelio, opera en 2 actes, musique de Beethoven. - ORIGINAL 1829 PROGRAM FROM THE FIRST FIDELIO PERFORMANCE IN FRANCE

      Paris: Imprimerie de Marchand Du Breuil, [1829]. First. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Original program from the French premiere of Fidelio on May 30, 1829, performed for three days at the Théâtre Italien, renamed the "Théâtre Allemand" for the occasion.  The performance was part of a touring season of German music drama in its original language conducted by Josef August Röckel (1783 - 1870), the German tenor who had sung the role of Florestan at the premiere of the second version of Fidelio in 1806, the principal roles performed by a German cast including Haitzinger, Fischer, Frtize, Riese, Wieser, and Genee.  Small 8vo. 20 pp, undated, title and cast list on the front, pages 2-20 including descriptive texts for each scene and lyrics in French translation. Loose as issued, bound with string, edges wrinkled, toned, a few small areas of paper loss, overall a very good copy, and an extremely rare survival. Worldcat records only the copy at the BnF. <br style="">"The reasons for its promotion at that theater and subsequent abandonment throw further light on the reception of German works at the theater and figure as well in the growth of interest in Beethoven's larger musical structures throughout the 1820s that would result in the 1831 performance of the Ninth Symphony.  Fidelio was otherwise almost entirely ignored before 1829...and the only other larger-scale work given any exposure in Paris during the decade was the Mass in C, op. 86, the 'Benedictus' and 'Agnus Dei' of which had been performed during the concerts spirituels of April 1824."

        A plan of communication between the New and the Old town of Edinburgh,

      4to., with 6 large folding lithographic plates, (2) 15 (1) 2 (2)pp., together with numerous additional blank leaves, in a fine later binding of half calf gilt over marbled boards. A fine copy sometime in the library of Charles Sebag-Montefiore with his armorial bookplate. This was Trotter's detailed proposal for the levelling of the Mound, the construction on the Mound of a fine neo-classical shopping arcade, and the provision of a new road across the Mound linking the New Town and the Old Town of Edinburgh. The shopping arcade was evidently at the heart of Trotter's enthusiastic scheme. It would be truly multi-functional, providing not only a shopping experience to rival London or Venice, but also galleries for modern art, a shelter from the violent winds "so prevalent in the Good Town of Edinburgh", an attractive rendez-vous for "the Belles and Beaux", and the daily flow of "Judges and Gentlemen of the Law, Professors and others connected with the University" would all "contribute to the prosperity of the Shopkeeper". The Arcade (which would have a sophisticated system of central heating) would more resemble the Burlington Arcade in London, or the Galleries of Paris, surpassing them all in situation, as every shop would have the double advantage of fronting a principal street, as well as in having a front into a Gallery so eminently calculated to attract the great population of Edinburgh".The plates here not only give a detailed view of both the elevation and the plan of the proposed Arcade, but also fine lithographic perspective drawings of the Old Town and its proposed access from Princes Street. In fact, Trotter's designs were never implemented.

        Zwei Jahre in Neu Südwales..

      Leipzig: Hartmann, 1829. The paper shows some characteristic browning; original half roan, worn with repairs at the corners.. Octavo, original half roan. A very good copy of the uncommon German translation of Cunningham's valuable account of the colony, considered an Australian classic: 'an acute observer and possessed a pleasant literary style, so that Two Years in New South Wales remains the best as well as the fullest picture of the colony in the 1820s' (ADB). The German translation and additional notes are by A. Kaiser.Cunningham made four voyages to New South Wales as surgeon-superintendent of convict ships and had taken up land on the Hunter River in 1825 before writing this most important account of the evolving and distinctive characteristics of the Australian people. His observations on the unique Australian vocabulary and accent, as well as on the physical characteristics of the Australian-born youth is the classic statement of the early colonial era.Ferguson originally knew the National Library copy only, but added the Mitchell and the then Public Library of Victoria to his census. As the title-page notes, the translation was based on the second revised edition of the original work (London, 1827).

        ALS to her daughter Janet Ranken

      21 August, [Sydney or Scotland] 1829 - Three-page ALS in a neat but unfinished hand, 228 x 185 mm., original red wax seal, stamp for the Sydney post office but not otherwise marked, very good. A charming and rather rare example of a woman writing from Sydney in the 1820s. The letter was written to Janet Ranken, the wife of the important Bathurst pastoralist and settler George, one of the first to take up land in the region. On George Ranken see a long entry in the Australian Dictionary of Biography, and the well-regarded 1916 memoir The Rankens of Bathurst. The only mystery about the letter is whether it was written in Scotland (where it is probably likely that Mrs Hutchison was still living) or Sydney (the sealed letter has only one postal stamp, for Sydney): was Janet Ranken's mother also an immigrant to New South Wales?The letter was written to her daughted Janet "Jenny" Ranken Hutchison, who had then been living in Bathurst for several years, having married the pastoralist George Ranken in May 1821 before the newlyweds sailed on the Lusitana. Ranken leased property from John Piper in Sydney, and was one of the first to be granted land in Bathurst, naming his property Kelloshiel, to which property they moved in 1823.This letter dates from 1829, when the Rankens were firmly settled in Bathurst, and her mother opens with some pointed chiding of young Mrs. Ranken, who has let her duties as a correspondent slip, the more so as reports have reached her that she George have had a new child, a daughter, as long ago as December 1828, and yet "not one word from George or you" (the lack of any mail "was not the way you used to do on similar occasions" notes her mother primly). Mrs Hutchison includes an interesting aside that "you have often spoek of coming home but so long as you are so [word] in the family way I do not see how it is posable".The rest of the long letter is taken up with fabulous gossip regarding all of their acquaintance, all told in a breathless and sometimes startlingly direct style: "we had Jessie and Tibbie Taylors here lately about a week", starts one passage, "as poor and as proud as ever" A mutual friend Marion has got word of the death of her husband, "but I am one among many who does not believe he is dead." Her son Peter is up to his old tricks ("if he knew the anxiety that his old Mother and Sisters are in about him"), and her daughters are "all in the usual (?) way often complaining tho nothing deadly I think amongst them". A mysterious Mr. Smith, well known to Janet, "is nothing at all going about like an old beggar man, patching and working with Bees?". While the uppity "Mr and Mrs Otto have now got - to the astonishment of the natives - a gigg, but tho it is now nine months since she got it she has been just once in it." Their niece Jean Otto is down to buy her "wedding draws" (?), and is to be married to an "active steady young man a writer" who had stayed many times with the Otto family. And so on.The letter concludes with a return to her heartfelt wish that she could know about what is happening in Bathurst: "I wish you would let me know what you are doing with your boys and how many is begun to learn and what is Miss Rankin like and all about them."A short obituary of Janet Ranken was published in the Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser for 25 October 1883, noting that she had initially stayed in Petersham while Kelloshiel was being laid out, but not noting who she was living with at that time - it is possible that the letter, that is, dates from Petersham.

        The Virginia Literary Museum and Journal of Belles Lettres, Arts & c.

      University of Virginia, 1829 - 1830, Charlottesville, Virginia: - Thirty seven of only 52 issues of the literary magazine published by the faculty of the University, with the ownership signature on several numbers of Judge William H. Cabell (1772 - 1853), former Virginia governor who helped choose the site for the University. An early look at the perspective of the faculty of Mr. Jefferson's University, which includes an article on Australian advertising and Australian newspaper reporting in the very first number. The article cites examples of amusing Australian advertising and reporting, and goes on to note, "there is no reason, indeed, why that distant country should not hereafter be a seat of the Muses. It is situated in a heavenly climate, and is possessed of the most singular anomalies especially in the animal and vegetable parts of the creation -- birds without wings, as large as Deer, their bodies covered with hair instead of feathers .where the swans are black and the eagles white: where the Kangaroo, an animal between the squirrel and the Deer, has five claws on its fore paws and three talons on its hind legs, like a bird and yet hops on its tail: where the Mole (Ornithorhynchus paradoxus), lays eggs, and has a Duck's bill ." (p8).The Virginia Literary Museum commenced in June 1829, and concluded in May of 1830. This volume includes the first number (the first 2 pages in facsimile), and covers a wide range of international and local topics, including slavery, Jefferson's Memoir and correspondence, education, the Virginia state constitutional convention, sugar, coffee, gold mining in North Carolina, encouraging manufacturing in Virginia and Australian advertising and newspaper reporting.Includes a multipart series titled "The Policy of Encouraging Manufactures", which supports among other views the notion of Virginia manufacturing capacity being equal to that of Great Britain (p60). The author goes on to counter the objection to the use of slave labor in manufacturing, citing as evidence: "as further proof that slaves are not unfit for the operations of a manufactory, it may be mentioned that children are more or less employed in all of them, and they cannot be supposed to have more motives to labour than slaves, more care, or foresight, or interest in the success of their labours."

Covers rubbed, slight bumping to corners, and paper spine label a little chipped, some browning and spotting, a good copy of a scarce item. First edition. A most informative volume on all aspects of horse racing, including betting. The author is forthright in his opinions. In his thumbnail descriptions of race tracks he comments on Epsom racecourse "Epsom Course can be properly called neither circular, oval, or triangular. It is altogether one of the worst courses in England". Talking about jockeys he comments "The third or Dirty class are remarkable for their slovenly, dirty and unworkmanlike appearance;- it is no uncommon occurrence to see these wretched apologies for Jockeys ride in dirty jackets, dark greasy corduroys, and gaiters of similar complexion". In his chapters on betting the author goes into some depth on the multiplication and division of vulgar fractions.

        Manuscript Journal - Travels Through Germany Switzerland, France & Belgium By Carriage

      Switzerland, 1829. Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, France, 23 July - 8 October 1829. Manuscript fair journal of an Englishman's adventurous overland journey through four countries in a horse-drawn carriage, taking some lesser travelled routes, following the river Rhine, ascending to the glaciers of Mont Blanc, and being in Belgium at the time of Dutch occupation when it was part of 'The Kingdom of the Netherlands.' 8vo. 175 pages, plus introduction leaf. Half green calf over marbled boards, marbled endpapers. Some leafs watermarked 'Slade 1824'. Wear to extremities and spine, otherwise in very good condition, a pleasing account. The late Georgian era travel diary of a rather adventurous man in his day, evidently of comfortable wealth, the present volume offers a pleasant and nostalgic reflection of European cities and villages as they were some seven to eight generations past. The traveller describes ancient cathedrals and monuments, fortresses, quiet villages, picturesque promenades, and undeveloped landscapes which have long since been industrialized and overpopulated. His interest in history, religious, political, architectural, sociological, and so forth, suggests that he is also an educated man, although he does not identify himself by name. A single mention is made of Conner, perhaps a brother or friend, whom he is travelling with. This being the writer's very first journey outside of England, his native country, the first entry is made on 23 July 1829 as he sets off from Dover aboard His Majesty's Mail Packet Salamander [built circa 1826], reflecting on the journey there from London as he crosses the English Channel to Calais. Immediately he is struck by French fashion. In Calais he hires the horse-drawn carriage for three months, with conductor, and the journey begins with visits to Saint-Omer, Cassel, and Lille. Nineteen (19) pages of his travel diary are devoted to historic Belgium, which for a brief period of twenty-four years from 1815-1839 was under Dutch occupation, then being part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. First stop Tournai, then to Brussels where he took a lovely tour and found luxurious accommodation, on to Waterloo, Namur, and Huy where only a few years earlier in 1818 the Fortress of Huy had been built by the Dutch, his explorations in what is now Belgium concludes at the healing mineral baths of Spa. [Following the Belgian Revolution, Belgium broke away from the Netherlands the year after this journey, in 1830. Namur continued to be a major garrison town under the new government.] His road through Germany follows the river Rhine for the most part, making an exceptionally scenic tour. At Aix-la-Chapelle [Aachen] he describes of the cathedral built by order of the Emperor Charlemagne [Charles the Great] who was buried there after his death in 814, and mentions Frederick Barbarossa who canonized Charlemagne in 1165. His horse-drawn carriage takes him from there to Cologne, Koblenz, continuing south to Bacharach, Bingen, Frankfurt am Main, Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Baden-Baden, Kehl, and finally to Freiburg where he describes the Freiburg Minster. Approximately thirty-seven (37) pages are devoted to Germany. [At the time of his journey, there remained tensions between the Roman Catholic Rhineland and the Protestant Prussian state, with Cologne being at the center of the repeatedly escalating conflicts. Cologne had been made part of the Kingdom of Prussia with the Congress of Vienna (1814-1815) following Napoleon's final defeat and abdicatio, first as part of the Jülich-Cleves-Berg province and then the Rhine province. Frankfurt had entered the newly founded German Confederation as a free city, becoming the seat of its Bundestag.] The first Swiss town visited was Schaffhausen. From there he briefly crossed the border back into Germany to visit Blumberg and Rhine Falls, then he continued to Zurich, Lucerne, Surcee, and Langenthal (which would not see municipal water, nor electric utility for some sixty years). In Bern the traveller visited and the world renowned Swiss Protestant (Reformed) theologian and naturalist Jakob Samuel Wyttenbach (1748-1830), who gave him a private tour and showed him his collections of art etc. Between Morat [Murten] and Payerne he takes notice of "a stone pillar erected in 1822 by the Fribourgians in commemoraton of a victory over Charles the Bold", then proceeds to Lausanne, Geneva, and Pregnis [Pregny-Chambésy]. Spending a few days around Lake Geneva, he also visited Chillon castle. Approximately thirty-six (36) pages devoted to Switzerland. From Ferney-Voltaire, France, a long journey was undertaken to the Valley of Chamounix and through the French Alps. Still travelling on a horse-drawn carriage even for a harrowing ascent to Montenvers Mer de Glace, the highlight of the entire journey was surely crossing the massive ice chasms. His ambitious itinerary continues to Bellegarde-sur-Valserine, Meximieux, Lyon, Roanne, Moulins, Nevers, La Charité, Bourges, Issoudun, Loches, Tours, Châteaudun, Chartres, Rambouillet, Versailles, Saint-Cloud, finally visiting Paris. From there he proceeds to Saint-Denis, and his final entry is made upon settling for the night on 8 October at a hotel in Beauvais. Approximately seventy-nine (79) pages are devoted to France. Excerpts from the text: "The following is a brief Journal of a Tour through part of the Netherlands, along the banks of the Rhine into Switzerland, and a return over the Jura through France, with a deviation from the usual routes & tours, and from thence to Paris &c &c..." 24 July 1829, Calais.

A little further on we first had a view of the Glaciers... We thus entered the Valley of Chamouni... " 9 September 1829, Montenvers Mer de Glace. "The view as we proceeded was extremely grand... below the village of Chamouni & the river Arve... from the path to the bottom it was in some places almost perpendicular... the height was 2025 feet above the valley... descended on the other side to the mer de glace.

The town is very ancient & some of the buildings much decayed... a spacious square where a market was held....a promenade... an ancient castle near it which belongs to the Duke..." [The Grand Monarque Hotel lived up to its name, being an immense sixteenth century building which was originally a baron's mansion, and was converted to a prestigious hotel in 1804. It was destroyed by fire by a group of German soldiers during the Franco-Prussian War on 18 octobre 1870.] 2 October 1829, Rambouillet.

Some are open to view & have a number of catacombs... altogether 140,000 monuments... some of the celebrated French Generals... there are 25 burials a day..." End Excerpts. The Kingdom of the Netherlands finds its origin in the aftermath of Napoleon's defeat in 1813. In March 1815, amidst the turmoil of the Hundred Days, the Sovereign Prince adopted the style of "King of the Netherlands". Following Napoleon's second defeat at the Battle of Waterloo, the Vienna Congress supplied international recognition of William's unilateral move. The new King of the Netherlands was also made Grand Duke of Luxembourg, a part of the Kingdom that was, at the same time, a member state of the German Confederation. In 1830, Belgium seceded from the Kingdom, a step that was recognised by the Netherlands only in 1839. At that point, Luxembourg became a fully independent country in a personal union with the Netherlands. Luxembourg also lost more than half of its territory to Belgium. . Very Good.
