        The Genealogy of the House and Surname of Setoun... with the Chronicle of the House of Setoun, Compiled in Metre

      Edinburgh: William Aitken, Printer, 1830 Small 4to. Full calf, heavily blind-embossed and with gilt borders. xiii, 64pp. Frontispiece, full-page engraving, marbled endpapers and page edges. Very good. Expertly rebacked in calf with crimson leather label titled in gilt; mildly edgeworn; heavy foxing and bit of discoloration, mainly to preliminary leaves. Tight and attractive second edition of this slim study first published in an edition of 100 copies in Glasgow by Hutchins and Brookman in 1829. Maitland (1496-1586) was a Scottish poet, antiquarian, lawyer and statesman known as "Manly Maitland." In 1828 a Maitland Club was founded in Glasgow to continue his explorations into Scottish literary antiquities. This interesting copy bears a unique provenance, for it hails from the library of Prince Augustus Frederick (1773-1843), the first Duke of Sussex, sixth son of King George III. In 1844 Messrs. Evans auctioned off his vast collection of books in a six-part auction taking 61 days, selling 14,107 lots. In August the third part consisted of history, topography, voyages and travel. The right inner flyleaf of this volume bears a note in rich brown ink: "Bought by Boone Aug. 15, 1844 at the Sale of HRH D of Sussex's Library / Lot 904 [illegible but likely a price figure] Derby / Knowsley." The left inner flyleaf notes, "Knowsley / Private Library North Bookcase D / [East?] Division Shelf No. 11." The "Derby" who penned these statements was none less than Edward Smith-Stanley, the 13th Earl of Derby (1775-1851), English politician and well-known naturalist often remembered as artist Edward Lear's patron -- and, by the way, an officer of The Maitland Club. "Boone" was an agent or perhaps bookseller who is known to have acquired items for the Earl. "Knowsley" is Knowsley Hall, ancestral home of the Earls of Derby, still standing today, where many of the 13th Earl's natural history book collection still resides. The Earl of Derby's handsome armorial bookplate (with "Sans Changer" motto in scroll) graces the front pastedown. A choice association copy.

        A treatise on the law of libel and the liberty of the press; showing the origin, use, and abuse of the law of libel: with copious notes and references to authorities in Great Britain and the United States: as applicable to individuals and to political and ecclesiastical bodies and principles

      New-York: printed by G.F. Hopkins & Son, 1830. 8vo., xxxviii + (39)-184pp.,with a single page Catalogue of Liberal Books for Sale by G.W. & A.J. Matsell> of New York bound in, well bound in strong mid-20th century cloth, spine lettered in gilt. A very good copy of an influential book. First, and only, edition. McCoy C.558. Sabin 16619. A powerful argument favouring 'untrammelled discussion, in its utmost latitude'. 'The liberty of the press is a phrase in every body's mouth. It forms one of the common-place panegyrics of what are called free governments. It is one of the boasts of those who admire that nonentity the British constitution. It is supposed to flourish particularly in these United States, and to form a distinguishing feature of our American governments. I hardly know in which of them to look for it.' [p.39]. Thomas Cooper (1759-1839), 'president of Columbia College, in South Carolina, had 30 years earlier been the defendant in a sedition trial. His doctrines on a free press, he writes, grew out of the earlier statements of Milton (Areopagitica>, 1644), Anthony Collins (1724), his own earlier tract (1787), Robert Hall (1821), Samuel Bailey (1821), and Thomas Herttell (1828). His legal researches led him to protest against the common law doctrine of libel and blasphemy. Appendix I deals with heresy and blasphemy.

        Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft

      1830. With The Plates In Two StatesCRUIKSHANK, George, illustrator. SCOTT, Sir Walter. Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft Addressed to J.G. Lockhart, Esq.… London: John Murray, 1830. First edition. Small octavo (5 11/16 x 3 13/16 inches; 151 x 98 mm.). [4], ix, [1, blank], 402 pp. Engraved frontispiece by W.H. Lizars after J. Skeve. With George Cruikshank's "Twelve Sketches Illustrative of Sir Walter Scott's Demonology and Witchcraft" bound in, the etched plates in two states, plain and hand-colored.Bound by Root & Son ca. 1900 (stamp-signed on upper front turn-in) in full tan calf, front cover pictorially stamped in gilt, spine with four raised bands, decoratively stamped in gilt in compartments, two maroon morocco gilt lettering labels, gilt-ruled edges, gilt turn-ins, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Chemised in an early pink cloth slip case.Despite the Cohn catalog assertion that no colored copies of the first edition were made [George Cruikshank] asked on 22 February 1831 if Robins wanted any more Demons colored."Sir Walter Scott?'s ?"Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft?" were his contribution to a series of books, published by John Murray, which appeared between the years 1829 and 1847, and formed a collection of eighty volumes known as ?"Murray?'s Family Library.?" The series was planned to secure a wide diffusion of good literature in cheap five shilling volumes, and Scott?'s ?"Letters,?" written and published in 1830, formed one of the earlier books in the collection."In the autumn of 1832, on the 21st of September, Sir Walter Scott died. The first warning of death had come to him in February, 1830, with a stroke of apoplexy. A few years yet of his own battle, while the shadows of night and death were gathering about him, and they were re-united. In these ?"Letters upon Demonology and Witchcraft,?" addressed to his son-in-law, written under the first grasp of death, the old kindliness and good sense, joined to the old charm in story-telling, stand firm yet against every assault; and even in the decay that followed, when the powers were broken of the mind that had breathed, and is still breathing, its own health into the minds of tens of thousands of his countrymen, nothing could break the fine spirit of love and honour that was in him. When the end was very near, and the son-in-law to whom these Letters were addressed found him one morning entirely himself, though in the last extreme of feebleness: his eye was clear and calm-every trace of the wild fire of delirium was extinguished: ?"Lockhart,?" he said, ?"I may have but a minute to speak to you. My dear, be a good man—be virtuous, be religious—be a good man. Nothing else will give you any comfort when you come to lie here.?" (Henry Morley. An introduction to Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft).Cohn, 188 (for the plates), Cohn, 731 (for the book)

        Memoria o sea relacion histórica de la nueva organizacion de los regimientos provinciales desde el año de 1823, reformas y mejoras que se han hecho, y servicios que desde dicha época han prestado, escrita por la seccion central establecida en la secretaría de la Inspeccion general del arma.

      Madrid, Imprenta de Don Miguel de Burgos, 1830. - (1 l.), 55 pp., (1 p. [first table]), 5 additional tables [3 folding] on 4 ll. 4°, contemporary red morocco (minor wear at extremities), covers with gilt roll-tooled border and fillets, spine heavily gilt, green lettering piece with title, all edges gilt. Small stain along inner margin of title-page, otherwise clean and crisp. Overall in fine condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION (?) of this report on how Spain's provincial regiments had been reorganized and strengthened between 1823 and 1830. Alarmed by the sorry state into which the military had fallen since the Peninsular War and how ineffectively it had protected Ferdinand VII during the revolution of 1820, the Spanish government resolved to restore public order through military strength. The @Memoria offers a chronological account of the reforms instituted by the Conde de San Román, inspector general of the militia. Described are the "purification" of politically suspect persons and incompetents from the officer ranks; the retraining of officers in standard procedures; the formation of special Guardia Real divisions to protect the king; the procedures followed in instituting an unpopular draft; the mechanisms established to ensure financial accountability; and the provisioning of units with new uniforms and equipment. The report closes with a summary of the military actions throughout Spain in which the provincial regiments were engaged between 1824 and 1830, including the Catalonian uprising of 1828. Supplementing the report are six tables, broken down by region, listing various expenditures made and provisions distributed.---- Not in Palau. Not in Almirante. Not located in NUC.

        Sketches of Character by E. D., The Mufflechop Family

      London: T. Pewtress. Lithography by W. & J. O. Clerk. First edition. Half Morocco, Paper pastedown on boards. Very Good. N.d., circa 1830. 4to. 26.5 by 18.5 cm. Twelve hand-colored comical plates of family of rotundity, a la the more modern Botero. The collection of plates depict the marriage proposal, "asking mamma", the bridal morning, preparing for the honeymoon on the continent, on the Channel packet, a Parisian fitting, the return, making baby linen, the firstborn, learning to walk, an archery lesson and the child's going off to school. These episodes do not all lend themselves to obvious humor; it is the preposterousness of the characters' figures, their vulgarity, grossness and all-around pretension, that serves as the source of laughter, just as in a typical Botero. There are illustrations more contemporary to these that have some of the same dynamic, to be sure -- the original illustrations of Mr. Pickwick, for one. While there is no text other than the captions, the plates do really work as an ensemble, and one or two without the context provided by the entirety would simply not do. Dubuisson is one of the relatively few known female book illustrators of the day. She is listed in Benezit but little of substance is known about her. Scarce, with only copy found on OCLC FirstServe at the Houghton Library. Paper pastedown heavily scuffed and worn, as is dark green morocco. Some light occasional soiling on the plates and their backs, but the color remains bright, vibrant, and fresh.

        Original letter signed to Bory de Saint-Vincent, granting him access to the reports of the Astrolabe voyage

      Paris, 1830. Letter signed on official letterhead of the "Ministère de la Marine", 310 x 200 mm., a few marks but very good. A Baudin voyage veteran studies Dumont D'Urville. Intriguing letter which shows the workings of the inner circle of French grands voyages experts and veterans, explicitly thanking Bory de Saint-Vincent for the important work he had done on the scientific volumes published after the Duperrey voyage (1822-1825), and therefore granting him access to the latest volumes relating to the Dumont d'Urville voyage (1826-1829) as they are published. Bory de Saint-Vincent, who had sailed with Baudin in 1800 and published an important account of his difficult time aboard and his researches in the Indian Ocean, had a long and interesting career as a scientist, and had indeed in 1828 - as this letter suggests - helped prepare the botanical volume published as part of the official account of the Duperrey circumnavigation. His work was greatly appreciated by the ministry, which is why d'Haussez, then minister of the navy, was able to grant Bory de Saint-Vincent access to all of the volumes relating to the Dumont d'Urville voyage that had been published to date. D'Haussez is granting the request, he writes, not only as a mark of thanks, but as a way of encouraging the scientist to perhaps publish an account of his own recent expedition to the Mediterranean (Bory de Saint-Vincent was the director of a scientific expedition to the Peloponnese, the so-called "Expédition de Morée" of 1828-1833).

Steeplechasing is primarily conducted in Ireland (where it originated), the United Kingdom, Canada, United States, Australia and France. The name is derived from early races in which orientation of the course was by reference to a church steeple, jumping fences and ditches and generally traversing the many intervening obstacles in the countryside.The first recorded steeplechase over a prepared track with fences was run at Bedford in 1810, although a race had been run at Newmarket in 1794 over a mile with five-foot bars every quarter mile. The first recognized English National Steeplechase took place on Monday 8 March 1830. The 4-mile (6.4 km) race, organized by Thomas Coleman of St.Albans, was run from Bury Orchard, Harlington in Bedfordshire to the Obelisk in Wrest Park, Bedfordshire. The winner was Captain Macdowall on "The Wonder", owned by Lord Ranelagh, who won in a time of 16 minutes 25 seconds. Report of the event appeared in the May and July editions of Sporting Magazine in 1830.The most famous steeplechase in the world is the Grand National run annually at Aintree Racecourse, in Liverpool, since its inception in 1836 (the official race was held three years later), which in 2014 offered a prize fund of £1 million.The Grand Leicestershire Steeple Chase in 1829, preceded the first Grand National by seven years.Siltzer, p.61

        Auf die Meistersinger. Die Hochlöblich ehrenhaft Kunst / Kayser Otto begabt mit Gunst / Solch Freyheit ein ehrsamer Rath / Verliehen hat uns in der Statt // welcher die kunst wol herren an / es sei gleich frawen oder man / Die Komen auff das Rathhauß nur / In die Schawstuben auff 12. Uhr. (Blatt 1).- Gottes Wort Im Lesen und Schreyben / soll in der Kunst die Richtschnur bleiben / Gott zu Lob will ich frewlich singen / ob ich die Gab möchte davon Bringen // Als 1607. Jahr / Die Taffel renovieret war (Blatt 2). Blatt 1 zeigt die legendären Meistersinger, die sog. "alten Meister", um den Brunnen der Weisheit versammelt. In den Wolken erscheint der Harfe spielende David und die Taube des Hl. Geistes. In Blatt 2 wird die Gründungssage der Meistersinger in Versform berichtet; darüber zwei Darstellungen: Meistersinger beim Eröffnungslied; vier Meistersinger beim Verfassen des Meistergesanges.

      . Kreide- und Federlithographien um 1830. Je 73,3:53,3 cm. In der Literatur nicht nachweisbar.- Beide Blätter knitterig, ein Blatt mit Wasserrand, das andere mit hinterlegten Randeinrissen.. Der auf Blatt 2 wiedergegebene Text ist das Eröffnungslied des Schulhalters der Meistersinger mit der - erfundenen - Sage vom Ursprung des Meistergesanges: Im 10. Jh. Hätten Otto der Große und Papst Leo in Mainz nach strenger Prüfung den Meistergesang bestätigt und privilegiert. Zu den bekanntesten "alten Meistern" - die keineswegs alle gleichzeitig dichteten - zählen die, auch auf diesem Blatt versammelten Walther von der Vogelweide (ca. 1195 - ca. 1230), Reinmar ("Römer") von Zweter (ca. 1227 - ca. 1250), der Marner (ca. 1230 - ca. 1270), Konrad ("Herr Conradt") von Würzburg (gest. 1287), Heinrich Frauenlob (gest. 1318), Regenbogen (gest. nach 1318) und Heinrich von Mügeln ("D. Mügling") (gest. nach 1371). Nach dem Eröffnungslied tragen die Meistersinger meist weltliche Stoffe vor, aus antiker und neuerer Geschichte, der Mythologie , aus Fabeln und Märchen, Satirisches und Anekdotisches. Die Blütezeit der Meistersinger in den deutschen Reichsstädten, allen voran Nürnberg, waren das 16. Und 17. Jh. Der Niedergang dieser >Handwerkerkultur setzte im 18. Jh. Ein und führte zum Erlöschen der meisten Gesellschaften. Nur zwei Meistergesellschaften bestanden bis ins 19. Jh.: die in Ulm bis 1839 und die in Memmingen sogar bis 1875. Man kann daher davon ausgehen, daß unser Blatt im Auftrag eines der beiden letzteren Gesellschaften entstanden ist. Möglicherweise handelt es sich um ein Unikat. (Vgl. Hans Sachs und die Meistersinger in ihrer Zeit. Hrsg. Vom Germanischen Nationalmuseum Nürnberg. Ausstellung im Neuen Rathaus Bayreuth, 7.7.-30.8.1981).

Sein Bruder Johann Friedrich Matthäi studierte Malerei bei Giovanni Battista Casanova, während sein anderer Bruder, Ernst Gottlieb Matthäi, Bildhauer wurde. Nach Studienreisen, die Matthäi nach Bremen, Kopenhagen und Wien führt, wurde er gräflich stolbergischer Baumeister in Wernigerode, wo er die Schlosskirche erbaute. In den Folgejahren leitete Matthäi zahlreiche Bauvorhaben in Dresden. Von 1830 bis 1833 lebte er in der Nähe von Kalisch, von 1842 bis 1847 in Teplitz. Neben seinem Buch über die Bildhauerei verfasste er auch Traktate über die Gewerbe des Maurers, Dachdeckers, Zimmermanns und Ofenbaumeisters und zur Hebung des künstlerischen Stils in den Handwerken.

        Remarks of General Harrison, Late Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States to the Republic of Colombia, on Certain Charges Made Against Him by that Government

      Washington: Printed by Gales & Seaton,, 1830. To which is added, an Unofficial Letter, from General Harrison to General Bolivar, on the Affairs of Colombia. Octavo (233 × 141 mm) Later blue half morocco, marbled boards and endpapers, top edge gilt, others uncut preserving deckled edge. Housed in a dark blue quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Quite rubbed at the extremities, title-page a little soiled and spotted, short split to the fore-edge professionally repaired, scattered foxing, top line of presentation inscription just shaved, stab-holes visible, but overall very good. First edition of this extremely uncommon publication, this a presentation copy, inscribed and signed by Harrison on the title-page: "John C. Wright Esq. of Steubenville Ohio from his friend W. H. Harrison." This is the only presentation copy of Harrison's Remarks ever to have appeared at auction, at the Streeter sale, 1967 (ticket to front pastedown). Harrison was appointed minister to Colombia by President John Quincy Adams in May 1828, arriving early in 1829, at a time when the "government of Colombia was in a perilous condition" (DAB). The country was in a more or less permanent state of insurrection, and the neighbouring state of Peru had just declared war. Against this background of crisis Harrison "became convinced that Bolivar was planning to make himself emperor … a plan which was repugnant to Harrison's republican principles". Recently inaugurated president Andrew Jackson decided to recall Harrison, making way for one of his "pronounced partisans" Thomas Patrick Moore, of whom the recently defeated president John Quincy Adams remarked that his "only public service [was] the servility of his prostitution to the cause of Jackson's election". But before the changeover was effected, Harrison sent Bolivar "a letter of extraordinary temerity, urging him to adhere to the tenets of republicanism … the Colombian government threatened to arrest him and did force him … to set out on his return journey …". His Remarks … offered a justification of his actions on the grounds of political principle, and a defence against possible misrepresentation by the new administration. The recipient, the lawyer and journalist John C. Wright, was a member with Harrison of Ohio's congressional delegation, serving in the House of Representatives during the latter's term in the Senate and actively supporting Harrison's diplomatic appointment. He later served as a delegate to, and honorary president of, the Washington Peace Conference of 1861, held in an effort to devise means to prevent the impending war, and died while serving in that capacity.

        Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft

      1830. first edition. With The Plates In Three StatesCRUIKSHANK, George, illustrator. SCOTT, Sir Walter. Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft Addressed to J.G. Lockhart, Esq.… London: John Murray, 1830. First edition. Small octavo (5 7/8 x 3 3/4 inches; 149 x 96mm.). [4], ix, [1, blank], 402 pp. Engraved frontispiece by W.H. Lizars after J. Skeve. With George Cruikshank's "Twelve Sketches Illustrative of Sir Walter Scott's Demonology and Witchcraft" bound in, the etched plates in three states, plain, colored and mounted on India paper.Bound by H. Wood ca. 1900(stamp-signed on lower front turn-in) in full red crushed levant morocco, spine with five raised bands, lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt-ruled edges, decorative gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Despite the Cohn catalog assertion that no colored copies of the first edition were made [George Cruikshank] asked on 22 February 1831 if Robins wanted any more Demons colored."Sir Walter Scott?'s ?"Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft?" were his contribution to a series of books, published by John Murray, which appeared between the years 1829 and 1847, and formed a collection of eighty volumes known as ?"Murray?'s Family Library.?" The series was planned to secure a wide diffusion of good literature in cheap five shilling volumes, and Scott?'s ?"Letters,?" written and published in 1830, formed one of the earlier books in the collection."In the autumn of 1832, on the 21st of September, Sir Walter Scott died. The first warning of death had come to him in February, 1830, with a stroke of apoplexy. A few years yet of his own battle, while the shadows of night and death were gathering about him, and they were re-united. In these ?"Letters upon Demonology and Witchcraft,?" addressed to his son-in-law, written under the first grasp of death, the old kindliness and good sense, joined to the old charm in story-telling, stand firm yet against every assault; and even in the decay that followed, when the powers were broken of the mind that had breathed, and is still breathing, its own health into the minds of tens of thousands of his countrymen, nothing could break the fine spirit of love and honour that was in him. When the end was very near, and the son-in-law to whom these Letters were addressed found him one morning entirely himself, though in the last extreme of feebleness: his eye was clear and calm-every trace of the wild fire of delirium was extinguished: ?"Lockhart,?" he said, ?"I may have but a minute to speak to you. My dear, be a good man—be virtuous, be religious—be a good man. Nothing else will give you any comfort when you come to lie here.?" (Henry Morley. An introduction to Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft).Cohn, 188 (for the plates), Cohn, 731 (for the book)
