        Handwritten Manuscript: Life on a Limerick Farm 1830-1925

      - My father's earliest memory was, as a very small boy.looking up the inside.Limerick chimney in his kitchen and seeing a salmon larger than himself hanging inside being smoked he took fright, He was born on the 10th May 1874, the year the bridge was built at Eyon over the Mulcair river near Brittas Castle. This bridge had the effect of deflecting the lives of the school children .to Eyon school from KishyKirk school. The family.did not lightly throw out old memories or old household goods.one time they threw out old receipts going back to the battle of Waterloo.the pewter dishes on the kitchen dresser inscribed.P & J. R. belonged to Patrick & Johanna Ryan who were the reigning couple around the 1820's & my father's great grandparents. The writer refers to the Townland of Castle Erkin, She contiinues about her father & the beauty of a blue flowered flax field against the backdrop of the distant Cappamore Mountains. Her father's grandmother Kit Ryan (nee Berkery spent the winter spinning to make sheets from the flax - preparing for her own demise as these sheets were used for the laying out of the dead. She mentions the Sheridan Le Fanu children of the rector at Abington fishing instead of studying for their entrance exam to Trinity College Dublin.Then continues on about their house and various ways in & out of it and flooding and how to avoid people one didn't want to see when they called. She refers to her father going to Eyon school where the school master & school mistress were James & Margaret O'Brien, great grandparents of Ulick O'Connor. There is comment on the school teachers, the languages spoken & the regular visits of Father Ryan (Minor) a curate & later P.P. of the half parishes of Murroe & Boher. The priest was a great support to people during the Cloncurry evictions. He also did the sideline during hurling matches cracking a whip to ensure no onlookers interfered in the game. Further commentis on the fact that there were a lot of Ryan's in the area and the way in which they were differentiated. They lived in the townland of Ballyart. She talks about the yard and the quality of the stones in it and their thatched house and when it fell into disuse the materials that went into making it could be seen and she describes them& the house some of the furniture and the layout in quite a bit of detail. In it too was the hatching goose's quarters. Heating the house involved going for turf near Glenstal after the Eyon turf became cut out. Different visitors called by included those who would go to the kitchen and to the parlour - when the latter came all work stopped. Two tapestry pictures done by her aunts, (his father's sisters) on the wall in the parlour was one completed in Kishkirk school in August, 1856. Mention is made of the different landlord's and the landlord of their house was Colonel Hartropp who didn't know his tenants. He would take his money from the Land Commission and go. She mentions the rent on the property and about how people who were evicted from their houses had huts built for them at the side of the road by the Land League. She names some of the people who lived in these huts. Among them were the Hayes and Hunphreys families of Canon Hayes of Moher and Father Humphreys of Kilenaule.The poor people in the area were called the Cappamores & they used to come collecting the "donation" - 4 potatoes or a sack full of flour. Before the Land Purchase Acts the Rent Warner was a feature of life. Theirs was Jaypus O'Neill. Comment is made on his antics & a story told by Madge O'Brien a great raconteur and a grand aunt of Ulick O'Connor about a healer who visited Limerick with the name that sounded like "Sequa" who among her other miracles claimed to pull teeth painlessly. It is rumoured she employed a group of musicians to drown out the roars of her victims. A lot of boys from the area attended the Jesuit's at Crescent in Limerick & some of them became Jesuits for life. His father went there with James O'Brien, l [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Brighthelmston

      Brighton: Arthur Wallis, [c. 1830].. Overall 33.4 x 30.3 cm, incorporating the plan of Brighton at 25.6 x 30.3 cm and the prospect of the town from the sea at 7.7 cm x 30.3 cm. Original lithograph after the original copper engraved plan, later hand colouring to both the map and the view, the upper edge of the plan with a decorative cartouche featuring a lettered key to principal places located beneath. Sometime laid down on card, a few small tears without loss, some small surface losses to the upper right corner. Ford, 3, i, describing the view. First published in 1779 from an original survey by these early pioneers in the mapping of Sussex, presumably as an adjunct to their two inch to the mile county map. This printing of the map no doubt appeared as a result of the increased number of visitors to the newly fashionable resort. Neither edition of this very early broadsheet plan of Brighton is common.

        Annotações a enormissima sentença que sobre o supposto crime de lesa magestade de primeira cabeça foi proferida na cidade do Porto no dia 21 d'agosto de 1829. Pelo autor da Injusta acclamaçam do Infante D. Miguel.

      Paris, Na Typografia de J. Tastu, 1830. - 8°, stitched (spine with small defects at head, foot, and center). Uncut. In very good to fine condition. Old purple stamp of the Duke of Palmela, with ducal coronet above monogram, in blank upper outer corner of title page. (1 l.), 93 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. When D. Miguel seized the throne of Portugal in 1828 the then Marquês [later Duque] de Palmela sided with the opposition in Oporto and with them was forced to flee to England. D. Miguel had him and other leading opponents condemned to death in absentia and seized their estates, but Dom Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil, appointed Palmela guardian to his daughter, the rightful Queen Maria II, and he acted as her ambassador at the British court. In 1830 he set up the young queen?s regency on Terceira in the Azores. The present work contains the judicial sentence passed by judges loyal to D. Miguel, refuted with extensive annotations.António da Silva Lopes Rocha (1784-1842) obtained a law degree from Coimbra University, held several judicial posts, practiced law in Lisbon for a number of years, eventually belonged to the royal "Conselho", and was auditor do Supremo Conselho de Justiça Militar. A partisan of the liberal cause, he appears to have spent some time in exile during the reign of D. Miguel.Provenance: The extensive library of the Dukes of Palmela, formed mainly in the nineteenth century, was dispersed, for the most part, during the second quarter of the twentieth century through the 1960s. The first to hold the title was D. Pedro de Sousa Holstein (1781-1850), one of the most important Portuguese diplomats and statesmen of the first half of the nineteenth century, who served as prime minister at various times in the 1830s and 1840s. He wrote profusely on politics and economics. (See Grande enciclopedia XX, 123-8.)*** Biblioteca Pública de Braga, Catálogo do Fundo Barca-Oliveira, p. 210.

        On the phenomena and laws of elliptic polarization, as exhibited in the action of metals upon light.

      Printed by Richard Taylor, 1830., In: The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society . London: - 279 x 225 mm. 4to. Vol. 120. Part two: vi, (223)-434, [8], 14 pp. (Brewster's article appears on pages 287-326). Numerous tables, 3 figs.; some offsetting associated with plates at the rear of the volume, some track-marks on series title. Original blue wrapper, untrimmed, blue kozo spine; top cover chipped. Very good. FIRST EDITION. This paper contains Brewster's second major contribution: the laws of metallic reflection. "The most striking properties of metals are the power of brilliantly reflecting light at all angles of incidence, which is so well shown by the mirrors of reflecting telescopes, and the opacity, which causes a train of waves to be extinguished before it has proceeded many wave-lengths into a metallic medium. That these two attributes are connected appears probable from the fact that certain non-metallic bodies - e.g. aniline dyes - which strongly absorb the rays in certain parts of the spectrum, reflect those rays with almost metallic brilliance. A third quality in which metals differ from transparent bodies, and which, as we shall see, is again closely related to the other two, is in regard to the polarisation of the light reflected from them. This was first noticed by Malus; and in 1830 Sir David Brewster showed that plane-polarised light incident on a metallic surface remains polarised in the same plane after reflection if its polarisation is either parallel or perpendicular to the plane of reflection, but that in other cases the reflected light is polarised elliptically. It was this discovery of Brewster's which suggested to the mathematicians a theory of metallic reflection." Whittaker.

".an extraordinary kind of precursor to the self-help manual. Balzac was thirty when it was published, and already he felt he knew enough about the institution of marriage to advise others on the matter. And maybe he did: though he hadn't married yet, he'd already perfected the art of the aphorism. This book is full of them. 'To saunter is a science; it is the gastronomy of the eye. To take a walk is to vegetate; to saunter is to live.' 'A man ought not to marry without having studied anatomy, and dissected at least one woman.' And 'Marriage is a fight to the death, before which the wedded couple ask a blessing from heaven, because it is the rashest of all undertakings to swear eternal love; the fight at once commences and victory, that is to say liberty, remains in the hands of the cleverer of the two.'" - Paris Review. A very good set, well preserved in sound bindings, with some light foxing to contents and darkening to spines and two scuffs to one board, very good condition overall / tres bon etat.

        Kokon kaji biko [trans.: Sword Smithing: Old & Modern]

      - First edition. The Yamada family of sword testers was famous; for many generations they made a living as executioners and kept detailed records of each sword's performance. Bodies were mounted on a cutting stand and specific cuts were made. One of their toughest tests was to cut centrally through the thorax, the so-called chiwari ("breast splitter"), as it had to go through several ribs. The sword was judged on how many bodies were severed with each type of cut. Following the index in the first volume of the present work, there are three introductory essays: 1) Yamada on the metallurgical processes for making steel for swords; 2) Masahide Kawabe on the manufacturing of swords; and 3) Natae Kamata on the testing of swords. This final essay contains several illustrations of the "testing grounds" for the sharpness of swords: chopping blocks and mounts to secure bodies. The remaining portion of the first volume is devoted to histories of the leading sword smithing families of Japan. Vols. II-IV contain an invaluable dictionary of sword smithing families, alphabetically arranged. The final three volumes contain depictions of hundreds of sword blades, arranged by manufacturer and region. Each manufacturer's seal is illustrated. Fine condition. Many illus. in the text. Seven vols. 8vo, orig. patterned pale blue wrappers (rubbed), orig. block-printed title labels on upper covers, new stitching. [Japan: ca. 1830] [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        SPAIN &#150; BADAJOZ / NAPOLEONIC WARS MANUSCRIPT MAP: [UNTITLED MANUSCRIPT PLAN OF THE SIEGE OF BADAJOZ (1812)].

      [Probably London, circa ]. 1830 - Manuscript, pen and ink and watercolour on thick laid paper (Excellent, lovely colours, clean and bright), 24.5 x 38 cm (9.5 x 15 inches). An exquisitely drafted, coloured manuscript plan of the Siege of Badajoz (1812), one of the seminal events of the Peninsular War. This extremely well-executed and beautifully coloured manuscript map depicts Badajoz, Spain and its defensive works in the immediate run up to the Siege of Badajoz (1812), one of the bloodiest engagement of the Napoleonic Wars, and a major landmark towards the liberation of Iberia from French occupation. Badajoz, located only a few miles from the Portuguese border, occupied a key bridgehead across the Río Guadiana, and was long fought over by Spain and Portugal. In essence, it guarded the all the viable direct approaches between Lisbon and Madrid, the city vital to the military control of Iberia. The map, which is orientated westwards, is centered on the old walled city of Badajoz, which lies on the left bank of the Río Guadiana. Elaborate Vauban-style defensive works encloses the city. Within, every major street is delineated, giving a fine impression of the layout of the city. A fortified bridge crosses the river, while Fort San Cristobal is shown guarding the valley from above the right bank. The southern approaches the city are guarded by the Pardaleras Battery, while and elaborate defensive earthworks, including the Lunette San Rocque, occupy the upland to the west of town, across a ravine, called the "Impassable Inundation". Below the map runs an engineers&#146; cross-section view, running for Fort Cristobal across to the batteries on the other side of the river. The present untitled, undated map is difficult to date. However, judging from the style of draftsmanship and the type of thick, laid paper used, it seems to have been made during the 1820s or 1830s. The quality of the draftsmanship is exceedingly high, indicative of a mapmaker with formal training in military cartography. The present map was likely adapted from contemporary manuscript sketches of the siege and, due to the nature of its even, blank margins, was likely prepared to illustrate a retrospective of the Peninsular War. The present map seems to be the basis of the map, &#145;Siege of Badajoz. March and April 1812.&#146;, which appeared as Plate 9 within George R. Gleig&#146;s The Life of Arthur First Duke of Wellington (London: Longman, Green, Longman and Roberts, 1862); however, the printed map truncates the view to exclude the far-right of the manuscript view, as well as the cross-section below. The Siege of Badajoz (1812): Landmark on Road to the Liberation of Iberia - During the Peninsular War (1807-14), the Iberian theatre of the Napoleonic Wars, Badajoz was unsuccessfully attacked by French forces twice, in 1808 and 1809. However, on March 10, 1811, the French Marshal Soult bribed the city&#146;s Spanish commander into surrendering Badajoz. In May of that year, an Anglo-Portuguese force under Marshal William Beresford unsuccessfully attempted to take Badajoz, although it scored a brilliant victory against the French at nearly Albuera. Over the next year, the Anglo-Portuguese forces (assisted by their Spanish allies), under the overall command of the Duke of Wellington, scored several great triumphs across Western Iberia. However, the French hold on Badajoz strategically threatened everything the liberators had accomplished. Simply put, Badajoz had to be taken out. However, this was easier said than done. The French commander, Major General Armand Phillipon, who had withstood Beresford&#146;s siege the year before, had since improved the city&#146;s fortifications, which, as shown here, had made Badajoz exceptionally well protected. He also laid a number of explosive traps to thwart any direct British assault. Moreover, Badajoz was garrisoned by 5,000 well-trained and rested French troops. Wellington was determined to leave noting to chance, so composed a force 27,000 strong, in an effort to overwhelm Badajoz. The prese
