Skidmore, Thomas
New York: Printed for the Author by Alexander Ming, 1829. 405,[1]pp. Contemporary calf, original gilt stamping on covers, gilt morocco spine label. Moderate edge wear, center vertical crease in spine, spine ends frayed. Early bookplate remnants on front pastedown, hinges a bit tender. Good. First and only edition of this very rare and early American radical work, and one of the seminal works of the American Left. It is an important early example of American progressive economic philosophy, calling for the rights of workers, redistribution of property, and universal education. Skidmore was a co-founder of the Working Men's Party, which emerged in 1829 and sought to abolish debtors' prisons, reduce the length of the workday and establish a lien law for building laborers, and the Agrarian Party in 1830, after being ousted from the former party by moderates. His three books were self- published in sparse numbers, and his early death during the cholera epidemic of 1832 prevented any furtherance of his radical writings. In his 1939 address to the Grolier Club, entitled RADICAL LITERATURE IN AMERICA, Frederick B. Adams, Jr. wrote that "Skidmore's experiences as a working mechanic brought him personal knowledge of the position of the propertyless worker in an industrialized society. To achieve common ownership of the means of production, he proposed that the State take over all property and divide it equally." "Wealth to be equally divided, with its equal transmission to later generations on the maturity of each individual. An early Townsend plan" - Howes.

First edition of the first substantial English translation of the travel account of Abu Abdullah Mohammed ibn Batuta (1304-68/69), known in the West as the Arabian Marco Polo, with extensive footnotes. "While on a pilgrimage to Mecca he made a decision to extend his travels throughout the whole of the Islamic world. Possibly the most remarkable of the Arab travellers, he is estimated to have covered 75,000 miles in forty years" (Howgego). His journeys included trips to North Africa, the Horn of Africa, West Africa and Eastern Europe in the West, and to the Middle East, South Asia, Central Asia, Southeast Asia and China. - The account known as the Rihla, is esteemed for its lively descriptions of his travels, giving notable information on the history, geography and botany of the countries and cities Ibn Batuta visited. He describes, for example, the city of Aden as follows: "From this place I went to the city of Aden, which is situated on the sea-shore. This is a large city, but without either seed, water, or tree. They have, however, reservoirs, in which they collect the rain-water f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Oblong quarto (10 x 13 1/8 inches; 253 x 332 mm.).Ten fine and amusing hand colored lithograph plates (all mounted on stubs).Bound ca. 1925 by René Kieffer (with his binders label on verso of front end-paper) in half dark blue straight-grain morocco over marbled boards.

The plates: Les Petites Félicités 1. L'Enfance. 2. La Jeunesse. 3. L'Age Mur. 4. La Vieillesse. 5. La Chaleur. Les Petites Misères Humaines 1. L'Enfance. 2. La Jeunesse. 3. L'Age Mur. 4.

Attributed to Henry Clifford de Meillon
An album of 26 watercolours of South African and Asian figures, including tradesmen, farmers, smartly dressed locals, and one European, with dedication page featuring calligraphic ink inscription that reads "With Jane's kind love to Marianne, June 7th 1829". The watercolours are painted on decorative embossed papers [by Dobbs] and mounted onto the album leaves, each approx. 115 x 77 mm. There is some minor surface dust but generally the works are clean. The last watercolour has a large stain to the bottom left, affecting the image. The works are bound in crushed dark green morocco, gilt, the spine in six compartments also gilt, with title " African Paintings". "Bound by R. Salter, Bath, 1948" written in pencil , and "Drawings bought c. 1829 from J.D. Gregory's Bazaar, Cape Town'" also " 26 original water colours of African types by Henry Clifford de Meillon or J. W..." [inscribed on front fly leaf]. None of the works are signed, but they bear a similarity to other works by de Meillon found online and have previously been described at auction as "Attributed to Henry Clifford de Meillon". It might be that further research will add to this attribution or confirm it. We have not been able to find any information about Gregory's Bazaar in Cape Town in or around 1829 or if de Meillon was selling his artwork there. Another possibility is that other artists were copying the style of de Meillon who seems to have been relatively successful locally, and were also selling their work to tourists.

[BENNETT, Edward Turner]
London: Robert Jennings, 1829. Slightly rubbed at joints but a fine copy in a most attractive contemporary binding.. Octavo, with 107 wood-engravings; finely bound in contemporary red morocco gilt decorated, edges fully gilt, early inked manuscript note on endpaper. First edition. The menagerie in the Tower of London had been established in the mid-thirteenth century at which time it housed a white bear which bathed and fished in the River Thames. The fortunes of the zoo waxed and waned until 1822 when the new director, Alfred Cops, arrived to find no more than 'one grizzly bear, an elephant and one or two birds'. Within six years of his appointment, he had revitalised the collection and this description of some sixty species was completed each of which was drawn from life by William Harvey, friend and favourite pupil of Thomas Bewick, the fine English engraver (as borne out in the inked manuscript note of a previous owner).The collection boasted kangaroos, "yellow" crested cockatoos and emus, all of which are depicted and described in some detail. It is remarkable to think that by this date the exotic fauna of Australia - so recently discovered - was available locally: "The Emeus, like the Kanguroos, have become to a certain extant naturalised in the Royal Park at Windsor, where they breed without difficulty and with no extraordinary precautions... The pair in the Tower were obtained from this establishment, where they were bred"

Richard Robert Madden
London: Henry Colburn, 1829. First edition, 8vo, 2 volumes; handcolored frontispiece portrait in vol. I showing the author in "Syrian costume;" a very good set in contemporary calf and marbled boards, rebacked, the covers with some rubbing, the fore and bottom edges untrimmed. "Madden writes in this epistolary work of harems, slave markets, religion, crime and punishment, politics, and numerous other subjects as well as medicine, and in his preface describes the difficulties encountered by a traveler to the East whose fate has been 'to have been taken for a spy in Syria, to have endangered my life in Candia, for refusing to administer poison, to have been shot at in Canea twice, and once on the Nile, by Turkish soldiers--to have been accused of changing the fragments of a broken statue into gold at Thebes--to have been charged with sorcery in Nubia... and to have been a captive with Greek pirates, for wearing a long beard, when taken in a vessel bearing Turkish property'" (Blackmer sale catalogue, 801). This set from the library of Sir Merton Russell-Cotes (1835-1921), with his bookplate on the front pastedown of each volume. One of Bournemouth's most prominent citizens, Russell-Cotes served as its mayor from 1894 to 1895 and donated his substantial art collections and stately home to the city. His bookplates picture "Ye Mayor of Bournemouth" in the full regalia of his office. [Attributes: First Edition]

G A Thompson
London: John Murray, 1829. First edition, 12mo, pp. xii, vi, 528, 8 (ads and subscribers' list for Alcedo's A Dictionary of America as revised by Thompson); largely unopened; folding frontispiece map hand-colored in outline; a very pretty copy in original green cloth, paper label on spine; spine browned, else near fine. Palau 331831; Sabin 95511. A very early publisher's cloth binding. While the earliest publisher's cloth bindings date from the third quarter of the 18th-century - mostly canvas over boards, and usually for school texts and readers, the modern concept of the publisher's binding in cloth originated with William Pickering, ca. 1828. Other examples, usually on gift books, were sometimes bound in moire silk, or velvet, ca. 1828-1830. This example, published by Murray (certainly among his earliest examples), is in full cloth, and the printed label gives the price as 10s. 6d. (presumably so bound). A binder's ticket at the back identifies S. Woolnough, 7 Upper James Street, Golden Square. Another interesting feature is that the subscribers' list (nearly 400 names) is for an entirely different book. [Attributes: First Edition]

Bentham dedicated the final years of his life to perfecting his theory of codification, with the hope that his petitions for administrative and legal reform would be passed in the House of Commons. "Bentham, fearful that the 'Full-length Petition for Justice', given that it would have to be copied onto parchment, would prove too bulky for 'its being carried about for signature', and too expensive to be engrossed, had, therefore, produced the 'Abridged Petition'. The 'Abridged Petition' had the further advantage that it was more likely to be read and signed by a greater number of persons than the 'Full-length Petition'. The same considerations had then led him to produce the 'More Abridged Petition'... In effect, the work was a restatement of … [Click Below for Full Description]

By the leading scholars of Europe it was adjudged to be a work of transcendent merit, and even in the eighteenth century it was seriously debated whether Caesar, Livy, or Sallust had been his model. In this History, which for fully two centuries kept its place as a standard authority, Buchanan had appealed both to scholars and protestant theologians...

Various
London: Part of a fifty volume set, published monthly by John Murray, the series is one of non-fiction, and the subjects here include history and art, largely illustrated with maps and plates. Given the influence of Murray's publishing house, the works here are written by some of the finest authors of the era, including the likes of Sir Walter Scott, John Gibson Lockhart and David Brewster, with some contributors to the series who are absent here including Robert Southey and Henry Hart Millman. A fine example of the Victorian literary custom of serialisation, and of historical writing on the whole. The full list of works included here is as follows: Volumes I and II: Napoleon Buonaparte by J.G Lockhart (1829) Volume III: Alexander The Great by John Williams (1829): Volumes IV, X, XIX, XXVII, XXXVIII: British Painters, Sculptors and Architects by Allan Cunnigham(1829-1833) Volume VIII: The Court and Camp of Buonaparte by S. Dunham Whitehead Volume XIV: Lives of British Physicians by various authors (1830) Volume XVI: Demonology and Witchcraft by Sir Walter Scott (1830) Volume XVII: The Life of Bruce by Major F.B. Head (1830) Volumes XXI and XXXII: Venetian History by Edward Smedley(1831-1832) Volume XXXIII: Natural Magic by Sir David Brewster (1832) Volume LXIII: Sketches of Imposture, Deception and Credulity by Richard Alfred Davenport(1838) CONDITION In cloth covered boards.
