        Dressing for the house on the March 1829

      Thomas McLean, 26 Haymarket, London, England 1829 - Hand colored entching. Satirical print in acid free Mylar envelope. See British Museum number 1868,0808.8927. Title: Dressing for the house on the March 1829. John Singleton Copley, 1st Baron Lyndhurst stands in his dressing room in his shirt-sleeves, black breeches, black waistcoat and stockings and wearing his Chancellor's wig). He puts one hand into the arm-hole of a old coat which a footman in livery holds out, saying, "Your Lordship's Coat is become very threadbare for you know you turned it only last year - & it has been turned before that: so I much doubt if it will bear turning any more - Can't you afford to buy a new one now her Ladyship earns her own Expenses? - Doodle pays all her bills and gives her every thing she can wish for.' Lyndhurst: 'Alas! she'll get no more out of Doodle! he has quite kicked her off - She is just now gone to Cumberland to try after a service there which perhaps may enable me to keep still sitting on Wool, if I can but turn this Coat once more & look decent.' On a settee (right) are the mace, Purse of the Great Seal, and the Chancellor's gown. The satirist is pointing out that Lyndhurst is an opportunist and political turncoat and that, further, he is quite comfortable with the knowledge that his wife is having sexual liaisons with other men. He manged to remain Chancellor under Canning, Goderich and Wellington, which was quite a feat considering their different views and positions. His wife was no better. She granted her favors to the ultra rich Lord Dudley and then to the Duke of Cumberland, while sticking to her husband and partner and helping him advance his political career. March 24 1829. Print made by: William Heath. Published by: Thomas McLean. Dimensions: Height: 275 mm. Width: 370 mm. Lettered with title, artist's signature [Paul Pry], text within image and publication line: "Pub March 24 1829 by T. McLean 26 Haymarket." Description and comment from M. Dorothy George, 'Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires in the British Museum', XI, 1954). Lyndhurst, reputed a careerist and previously a 'Protestant', was Chancellor under Canning, Goderich, and Wellington. 'Doodle' is Lord Dudley, see 'Journals of H. E. Fox', p. 235 ; Creevey's 'Life and Times', ed. Gore, pp. 252, 363 ; Greville writes (1830) of Lady Lyndhurst: "Detesting her husband as a husband she sticks to him closely as a partner and labours for his aggrandisement and interests with abundant zeal and success."

January 1st 1830, one word from label cut out and replaced with the word Aunty in direct ink lettering on wood. A rare alphabet game with unusually large pictorial and alphabetic disks. Issued by one of the leading Regency game manufacturers, the delightful images range from Ark, Boy, Cow to Xury (the slave Robinson Crusoe helped to escape), Yew and Zebra. What had started as a single-sheet ABC primer in the 16th century became an educational toy in the late 18th. 'The underlying concept was the use of simple pictures to reinforce the phonic impact of initial letters. As with the ABC primer, the idea migrated from the classroom to the nursery and the hearth. It became recognised as an "improving" toy' (Rickards, The Encyclopaedia of Ephemera, p. 2). Usually these games are not dated; however, we can for once give this example a rough date from the presentation inscription.

        The Life of Philip Melancthon. Prepared for the American Sunday School Union

      Philadelphia: American Sunday School Union, (1829) - 12mo, original black quarter sheep, marbled paper sides, gilt lettering. ? An anonymous life of scholar and theologian Philipp Melancthon (1497-1560), issued as one of the many publications of the American Sunday School Union. On the front paste-down in a contemporary hand is written "Hermitage S. School / No 205 / Built & Endowed / by / Gen. Jackson." On the front free endpaper in apparently the same hand is the following notation: "This book was / bought & given by Gen. / And: Jackson to / the S. S. endowed & / built by him at his / plantation 11 miles / from Nashville / Tenn / F. Webber / Nashville, Tenn / June 22/62." ? In 1823 Andrew Jackson donated the property and funds for the building of a church near his middle Tennessee plantation, The Hermitage, which was at first called the Ephesus Church, but was later changed to the Hermitage Church in Jackson's honor. The Hermitage Church thrived, as did the Hermitage Plantation, until after Jackson's death when his son, Andrew, Jr., began selling off Hermitage property and buildings to pay for unsuccessful business ventures. By 1858 the Jacksons had abandoned the Hermitage, and during the Civil War services at the Hermitage Church ceased all together. ? Mr. Webber's statement that this book was bought and personally given by Andrew Jackson to the Hermitage Church Sunday School cannot be authenticated, but Webber did own other similar American Sunday School Union imprints from the Hermitage Sunday School library (we had one ten years ago), in which he wrote almost identical notations and dated June 22, 1862. There is little doubt that this book is a rare survival from the Sunday School on Jackson's famous plantation. On the title-page Webber has inscribed the book to his daughter, "Rachel E. Webber / from / Her Father." Binding rubbed; text somewhat browned; lacking the final blank and free endpaper; a good, sound copy. Not found in American Imprints, but OCLC records eight copies [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Novum testamentum polyglottum Bagsterianum.

      Londini: Samuelis Bagster 4to (29 cm, 11.4"). 75, [3] pp., 188 cols. in 4, 22 cols., 188 cols. in 4, [8] pp., 568 cols.. 1829 First edition of Bagster's impressive New Testament, "the most inclusive since the London Polyglot" according to Darlow and Moule. This hefty volume offers the text in Greek, Latin, Portuguese, and English on facing pages, followed by French, Italian, Spanish and German likewise, and then by Syriac in a separate section printed from right to left. This was the => first published portion of the Biblia Polyglotta, Bagster's great accomplishment, published from 1829 through 1831; the Hebrew text here is W. Greenfield's, the Greek is the Textus Receptus, the Latin is the Sixtine–Clementine, the English is the King James, the German (printed in blackletter) is Luther's, the French is Ostervald's, the Italian is Diodati's, the Spanish is Scio's, and the Syriac N.T. is from the Vienne, 1555 edition. Samuel Lee wrote the Prolegomena, which in this particular example are bound in after the (incorrectly placed) first eight pages of the French/Italian/Spanish/German section. Bagster first attempted to publish a part of his massive feat in 1822, but virtually all of that edition (in four languages only) was destroyed in a warehouse fire. Publisher's dark green ribbed cloth, covers framed in blind with large, elegant blind-stamped floriate devices in the corners; spine with gilt-stamped title and list of languages, this rebacked preserving the majority of the original spine and lettering, corners refurbished. Lower page edges (closed), title-page, and final page each with an old institutional rubber-stamp, title-page and one sectional title pressure-stamped, first preface page with inked numeral in lower margin, no other markings. Two leaves each with short tear from upper inner margin, not touching text; a scattering of very light spots in first and final sections, central portion with more consistent but still extremely faint spotting in lower margins; overall a strong, clean, attractive volume.

II: [2] ff., 512 pp.. 1829 Written under his nom de plume of Gabriel de Cardenas Z Cano, the Ensayo cronologico, para la historia general de la Florida of Andrés González de Barcía has enjoyed constant readership since its initial publication in the early 18th century, when it was composed as a companion to González de Barcía's magisterial edition of Inca Garcilasso de la Vega's La Florida. The Ensayo is a history of not just Florida but virtually all of America north of Mexico from 1512 to 1722 and details the activities of the Spanish, French, and English, covering not just wars but offering much on the indigenous populations, New World diseases, and so on. The present edition forms volumes 8 and 9 of the series Historia de la conquista del Nuevo Mundo. Provenance: Bookplate of the great 19th-century Mexican collector J. M. Andrade on the front pastedown of each volume. 19th-century quarter red morocco with red textured cloth sides. Spine with raised bands and very good gilt tooling including center devices in spine compartments. Interiors clean. A very good set.

        The Hobart Town Almanack for the Year 1830. With Embellishments

      Hobart Town: James Ross, 1829. Some wear of the spine panel, expertly repaired, remnant of original paper label, internally excellent.. 24mo, [viii], , 272 pp., engraved and lettepress titles, with a total of 11 engraved plates (including title page), original cloth. Rare and desirable early Tasmanian almanac here in its second year of issue, featuring eleven plates by the accomplished convict artist Thomas Bock and a descriptive itinerary of travel around Van Diemen's Land. Of particular interest are the final three pages of this volume, comprising regulations for Swan River settlers embarking from Hobart.The regulations are captioned 'For the guidance of those who may propose to embark as settlers, for the new Settlement, on the Western Coast of New Holland' and were issued by the Colonial Office in January 1829. They provide an excellent insight into preliminary arrangements for the colony, especially early land grants. We learn that the government wished to incur no expense for the transport of settlers or their upkeep, although the Lieutenant-Governor will grant land proportionately at a ratio of 40 acres for every £3 invested. The significant exception to this rule being settlers who bring labourers to the Swan River colony (including women and children over ten years of age) are entitled to further land grants. Full title will not be granted until land was cleared and improved, with uncleared ground incurring an annual fiscal penalty and ultimately reverting to the Crown. The second last provision stresses 'It is not intended that any convicts, or other description of prisoners, be transported to this new settlement' - ironic given that convict labour was deemed essential to the economy and transportation continued to West Australia long after its closure in Van Diemen's Land.The eleven plates were engraved by Thomas Bock (the good majority being signed "T. Bock") and are after originals by Frankland, Dalrymple, and Lemprière. Bock is widely recognised as one of the better convict artists of Van Diemen's Land: 'As a result of his work for James Ross, the proprietor of the Hobart Town Alamanck, Bock's skill as an engraver was further recognised. Most of the illustrations for the 1829, 1830, and 1835 almanacks were engraved by him and some also drawn by him. These plates… are competently engraved with finely-incised detail' (Hackforth-Jones The Convict Artists p.20).

        Schwanengesang. In Musik gesetzt für eine Singstimme mit Begleitung des Pianoforte... Letztes Werk. Ite [-IIte] Abtheilung. No. 5370. Preis f3._C.M. f. 2._. f.2_.

      Wien: Tobias Haslinger Musikverleger, im Hause der ersten österr: Sparkasse am Graben No. 572. Pfoehl sc. [PNs T.H. 5371-5384]. [1829]. Two volumes. Oblong folio. Original blue wrappers with publisher's decorative rectangular printed title label to upper of each volume. Housed in a custom-made full teal blue cloth-covered tray case with mid-tan leather title label gilt to spine. Vol. I: 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f.

(recto contents, verso blank), [1]-44 , 1f. (blank). Vol. II: 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 45-89, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved throughout. Printed on fine quality paper carrying the watermark "LAF." Untrimmed and as issued, each of the 14 songs with its own title. Provenance From the collection of the singers Henriette and Josephine von Spaun, daughters of Anton von Spaun (1790-1849), who knew Schubert and was part of his circle in Vienna. Both upper inner wrappers with the early signature "Spaun," and both volumes with the decorative bookplate of the sisters, "Henriette und Josephine v. Spaun," laid down to inner corner of title. With the later small owndership handstamp of Mary L. Aufderheide to upper right margin of title. Wrappers somewhat worn, soiled, frayed and chipped, professionally restored at spine and corners. Numerous marginal tears and some more extensive tears professionally repaired; occasional staining. . The rare and elusive First Edition, first issue of both volumes. Deutsch 957 1-13, 965A. Hoboken 14, 685-686. Hirsch IV, 659. "The seven poems each by Rellstab and Heine that make up the posthumously titled Schwanengesang were probably intended for separate publication. From the rippling demisemiquavers of Liebesbotschat to the languid triplets of Ständcher, from the ebullience of Abschied to the sprawling gloom of In der Ferne, the emotional range of the Rellstab settings is staggering. Five of the seven Heine poems are deeply tragic, and with a remakable economy Schubert plumbs the essence of images such as Ihr Bild and Der Doppelgänger. Even if we assume that Schwanengesang was begun earlier, the sheer quantity and quality of productivity in Schubert's last months point to a man who has by sheer force of will resolved not to acknowledge his failing body. But it could just as easily describe a man who knows that his time is almost up – or a man who, in his creative prime and, having survived worse bouts of illness, had no expectation of dying. Whatever the explanation, his productivity remains nothing short of miraculous." Robert Winter et al in Grove Music Online. "Among the women who sang Schubert's compositions simply and naturally, I must mention most particularly Fräulein Henriette von Spaun..." Leopold von Sonnleithner, Vienna, November 1, 1857, in Deutsch: Memoirs of Schubert by his Friend, p. 117. According to Deutsch, p. 213, both Henriette and Josephine were good singers. A highly interesting association copy.

        UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

      Philadelphia: Published by Henry S. Tanner, 1829. Rebacked on linen, expertly conserved by the Green Dragon Bindery. Silk lining edges. Lightly and evenly toned. A very nice copy. In a modern half morocco portfolio, stamped in gilt. The first edition of Tanner's spectacular and very beautiful large-scale map from "the Golden Age of American Mapmaking." The 1829 first edition of this map is described by Rumsey as "one of the best early large maps of the United States and the premier map for its period" (Rumsey 975). The map shows the United States from the Atlantic ocean to what today is western Kansas (noted as "Kanzas" on map). To the west of Michigan Territory and Missouri large areas of land include the locations of numerous Indian tribes but are designated as "Districts" rather than Territories: District of Huron, Sioux District, Mandan District, Osage District and Ozark District. Also included are canals, railroads, "McAdamized" roads and proposed canals and railroads. One of the most attractive and interesting aspects of the map are the numerous insets: these include sixteen inset city and regional maps (Environs of Albany; Environs of Boston; Environs of New York; Environs of Philadelphia and Trenton; Environs of Baltimore and Washington; Cincinnati; Charleston; New Orleans; South Part of Florida; Washington; Baltimore; Philadelphia; New York; Boston; Pittsburgh & Environs; Oregon and Mandan Districts [8 x 13 inches, with a further inset 'Outlet of Oregon River']) the border of the main map also includes fourteen profiles of portages, canals, and railroads and two tables in the lower right corner: Statistics of the Western Districts, and Statistics of the United States. According to Tooley, H.S. Tanner is "thought to be the first native-born American to devote his career to publishing," and he is responsible for some of the most important maps of the United States to be published in the 19th century.

Chevreul, chimiste et directeur de la manufacture des Gobelins, mécontent du rendu visuel des couleurs des tapisseries fabriquées à Paris, chercha une solution, par le biais de la chimie, en étudiant la fixation des pigments. "Chevreul's immediate task at Gobelins was to work on the improvement of color intensity and fastness in wools. He had been selected for this position because he was an outstanding chemist; and his initial studies were on the chemical aspects of dyes and dyeing, attempting to place the art of dyeing on a more rational basis than the complicated and empirical procedures then employed. He embarked upon a thorough study of the natural properties of natural dyes and between 1838 and 1864 published several important papers in the Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences, reviewing the chemistry and technology of dyeing. These papers and 'Leçons de chimie appliqué à la teinture' (1829-1830) rendered an important service to the dye industry during the years prior to the advent of synthetic dyestuffs" (DSB).

        SPECIMENS OF AMERICAN POETRY, WITH CRITICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL NOTICES ...

      Boston: S. G. Goodrich and Co.,. 1829. nineteenth-century three-quarter black pebbled morocco and marbled boards, spines and sides tooled in gold, t.e.g., other edges untrimmed.. A fine copy. (#137385). First edition. The first comprehensive anthology of American poetry. It includes poems by 189 American poets, beginning with Cotton Mather and ending with John Greenleaf Whittier. At the end of the third volume is a 28-page "Catalogue of American Poetry" which lists in chronological order "all the poetical works of American origin which have come under notice in the course of this undertaking." "The work was projected by [Samuel Griswold] Goodrich and originally undertaken by a Boston journalist, Frederic S. Hill, and was conceived as a refutation of Sydney Smith and other calumniators of American genius. To make the refutation sufficiently crushing, Kettell went into highways and hedges in search of eligible bards with the result that his collection throws a brilliant light on the state of literary culture in the period covered. The reviewers [e.g. S. A. Eliot, NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW, October 1829] fell foul of its indiscriminate inclusiveness and several editorial shortcomings; Goodrich, in consequence, lost $1,5000 on the venture and felt that insult was added to injury when he discovered that SPECIMENS were commonly referred to as 'Goodrich's Kettle of Poetry.'" - DAB Harris Collection, p. 137.

Göran af Klercker (1798-43) slutade sin karriär som kapten vid Vendes artilleriregemente och två av hans söner blev också artillerister. För att undvika olyckshändelser i samband med det tämligen vådliga arbetet att tillverka fyrverkerier, fastslås i några regler mot slutet, till exempel: "Böra framför allt inga slurfaktiga eller druckna arbetare användas och den noggrannaste ordning iakttagas under arbetet, hvilket, då det sker i stort, bör verkställas efter en förut uppgjord plan, så att hvarje slags arbete göres på en gång [...] hvarigenom vinnes, utom tid och materialier, äfven enformighet i arbetet och lättnad uti tillsynen"
