        Globe Artificiel et Mécanique a l'Usage du Petit Geographe

      Paris: circa, 1830. A collapsible engraved and handcoloured globe in six gores (170 mm. tall); protected by the original lithographed portfolio, 8 folding pages of text; with loose double-sided engraved and hand-coloured card 'Mécanisme du Glode Artificiel'; some browning and becoming frayed along the fold of the portfolio, inoffensive library stamp to interior of one of the gores, a very good and attractive example. Charming collapsible globe with accompanying booklet by the Frenchman Augustin Legrand. Legrand was active in the 1820s and 1830s and made delightful children's books, educational globes and friezes. He published any number of these educational books and novelties, the earliest dating from around 1800. His work is known for its graceful composition, as can be seen in his Planisphere suivant la projection de Mercator (circa 1830) now held in the National Library. These fragile globes are rare survivals, but were a popular educational toy of the period. The mapping of the globe is surprisingly accurate, with the various zones and also the ecliptic marked. Off the coast of New Zealand is marked the antipodes of Paris, and the map of "Nouvelle Hollande" is scattered with the older Dutch place names, but also "Botany Bay" and the unusual "T. de Grant" for the area that was initially called in French the Terre Napoleon after the territorial claims made in the wake of the Baudin voyage. The accompanying folding booklet contains a good description of the workings of "Le Globe artificial", including an overview of the basic components of geography (such as the various zones, the zodiac, and so on). There is also a five-page "Description de la Terre", with notes on Asia, Africa, Europe, America and Oceania ('celle-ci est accompagnée d'une quantité d'îles que l'on désigne sous le nom d'Océanie'). The text concludes with some spruiking for other relevant titles available at the publishers. There is also a separate hand-coloured card with, on one side, diagrams and a description of the "Mécanisme du Globe artificiel", and on the other, of the "Zodiaque écliptique.

        New Readings of Old Authors

      [1830-35]. first edition. Two Hundred and Twenty Humorous Hand-Colored LithographsDepicting Shakespearean Quotations[SEYMOUR, Robert, illustrator]. New Readings of Old Authors. London: Effingham Wilson and Charles Tilt, 1830-1835.Twenty-two (of twenty-six) volumes, twelvemo (5 7/8 x 3 5/8 inches; 149 x 91 mm.). Each volume with printed title and ten hand-colored lithographed plates illustrating quotations, mainly from Shakespeare’s plays, in a humorous manner. Late nineteenth-century green polished calf by Rivière & Son. Gilt triple-rule border on covers with gilt corner ornaments, gilt spines, tooled in compartments, with red and brown morocco labels, gilt board edges and inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others uncut. Each volume expertly and almost invisibly rebacked with the original spines and spine labels. The first four leaves of Othello have some light damp staining on the lower margin. A remarkable and near fine run of an extremely rare set. No complete set has appeared at auctionsince 1946 and OCLC shows just four complete sets in institutions worldwide (Huntingdon Library; San Diego Christian College; Simpson University Library; Texas A &M University, San Antonio).“Published between 1830 and 1835; the fact that the market was held for twenty-six parts is a pointer to its popularity, and, as such, can be regarded as illustrating the English idea of humour in the 1830’s, a taste that demanded puns, play on words, sentences twisted to an opposite and absurd meaning, and the whole depicted in knockabout pictorial art.Despite the enormous output of Seymour, very little of his work was coloured, his illustrations being mostly woodcuts or etchings. It will be remembered that Seymour originated the idea of a series of Cockney sporting sketches to be published in monthly parts. The idea was taken up by Chapman and Hall, who engaged Dickens to write the letterpress. From this grew the famous Pickwick Papers” (Abbey, Life).This set contains Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Byron’s The Giaou, Richard the Third, Merchant of Venice, Othello, The Tempest, King Henry VIII, King Lear, Coriolanus, Midsummer-Night’s Dream, Taming the Shrew, King Henry IV—Part 1, King Henry IV—Part 11, King Henry V,  Antony & Cleopatra, Titus Andronicus, Pericles, Troilus & Cressida, Cymbeline, As You Like It, Love’s Labour Lost, King Richard II. Although only twenty-two of twenty-six titles are present, each is complete in itself and this is a remarkable run. (The titles not present are Macbeth, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, and King John). Opinions:"The plan of this Work is to burlesque sundry quotations from favourite Plays, and it is well done: the Plates are admirable specimens of comicality. The Apothecary's direction Romeo, 'Put this in any liquid thing you will,' has been treated by the waggish artist, as a huge fat man-cook consigning a poor kitten, held by the tongs, to the tender mercies of a scullion."--- Omnibus."This is a very clever little Work, and it is not often our good fortune to meet with so much talent and whimsicality as is here displayed: the quotations are in general well selected, and the illustrations, by SEYMOUR, are full of wit and humour." --- Traveller."Oh that our readers could but look at these 'Readings,' for how can we 'describe the undescribable.' We engage to say that this little Work will do more in giving a 'tone and energy to those organs whose office it is to digest and assimilate food, oxygenate the blood, and regulate its circulation,' than anything we have yet seen." --- Sheffield Iris."This very clever and neatly got up series of Sketches, shews how the finest passages of SHAKESPEARE and BYRON, which ought to draw tears of sympathy from the eye, may be so illustrated as to make tears trickle down our cheeks, as a relief to laughter, from the strange turn our ideas take on examining these amusing illustrations." --- Elgin Courier."This Work improves as it progresses --- every fresh number that is issued making increased demands on our risibility. the number before us (the 8th) is indeed redolent in comicality. Shakespeare is here travestied with a felicity that would have added laurels to the comic genius of a HOGARTH." --- Sunderland Herald.Abbey, Life, 320.

        Voyage aux Iles de la Mer du Sud , en 1827 et 1828, et Rélation de la Découverte du Sort de La Pérouse

      Pillet, Paris 1830 - Two volumes, octavo, three lithographic plates (two folding) and chart of the island of Mannicolo; a little foxing yet excellent, unopened in original green printed wrappers, housed in folding cloth case. A very appealing copy of the first French edition of the voyage which solved the riddle of La Pérouse, unopened in the original printed wrappers. Forty years after the disappearance of La Pérouse, Peter Dillon, a sandalwood trader, called at the Solomon Islands. When a silver sword guard was shown to him, he suspected that he might have accidentally discovered the solution of a mystery that had tormented the French for decades. At Vanikoro he found many relics including a portion of the stern of the Boussole, ships' bells stamped 'Bazin m'a fait', monogrammed silver, metal fragments and mill stones known to have been aboard. One islander (shown here on a folding plate) had a glass piece from a thermometer in his nose. In recognition of his discovery Dillon was made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur, his expenses defrayed and he was granted a pension. His book was commercially successful, appearing in English and French editions promptly and eventually in a number of translations. Aside from the startling discovery of the fate of La Pérouse, Dillon's narrative is a classic account of the south Pacific in the 1820s. Hocken describes the author as 'a splendid specimen of a wild Irishman and seaman' and his narrative reflects the excitement and dangers of a sole trader in the south Pacific during this era. It is rich in descriptions of Australia and New Zealand, where Dillon was active as a trader and entrepreneur for many years. The fine and dramatic plates are reproduced from the first English edition of 1829, and were prepared by Godefroy Englemann who developed the process of chromolithography. Interestingly, the publisher Pillet also issued the official account of the Freycinet voyage, and that work is advertised here in the publisher's notice at the end of the second volume.

        THE ARCHER'S MANUAL: OR THE ACT OF SHOOTING WITH THE LONG BOW, AS PRACTISED BY

      Philadelphia: R.H. Hobson, 1830.. xii,[14]-66pp. Small octavo. Contemporary linen backed boards, lettered in gilt. Frontis and plate. Edges shelfworn, with fraying at crown of spine, foxing, tanning and occasional spotting; still a good, sound copy. First edition of this early American manual, equipped with a frontispiece engraved by Childs and Kelly after a drawing by Thomas Sully (a member). The unsigned introduction, in addition to providing a capsule history of Archery, acknowledges that the practical portion draws largely from Waring's TREATISE ... and Ascham's TOXOPHILUS. "The United Bowmen of Philadelphia, founded in 1828 by Titian Ramsey Peale, son of renowned artist Charles Willson Peale, was the first archery club in the United States and was similar to men's clubs for tennis and cricket. Members included famed architect John Haviland, portrait artist Thomas Sully, and Baldwin Locomotive Works founder Matthew W. Baldwin. Before the beginning of the second season Franklin Peale, brother of Titian and a founder, described the equipment the club owned: 'an outfit of the best quality, which consisted of a lemonwood bow, and spare strings, a dozen arrows contained in a quiver, a belt, pouch, grease-box, and tassel, a splendid pair of targets, and, finally, Waring's Treatise on Archery'" - website of the reorganized United Bowmen. Between two entries, OCLC locates only ten copies, and one copy appears in ABPC (1996). AMERICAN IMPRINTS (1830) 185. OCLC: 15220319.

        Naval Researches; or A Candid Inquiry in the Conduct of Admirals Byron, Graves, Hood and Rodney in the Actions off Grenada, Chesapeak, St. Christopher’s

      London, 1830. Folding engraved plates with hand coloring. 136 pp. “Being a refutation of the plans and statements of Mr. Clerk, Rear Admiral Ekins, and others...” White served as a young gentleman with Hood, “and was in seven actions with that distinguished officer between the 29th April, 1781, and the 12th April, 1782, on which day the ship he served in was actually engaged with, and captured, the Ville de Paris of 112 guns, bearing the flag of the Count de Grasse.” This work is a defense, based on White’s own experience, as well as naval documents, of the conduct of Graves and others in these decisive sea-battles of the American Revolution. The work is illustrated with ten hand colored folding battle plans. Good stuff, and quite scarce. Sabin 103459. Smith I, 1558. Bound in original cloth with remains of paper label. Wear to backstrip. Light tide mark on lower half of some of the plates. Still a very presentable copy of a scarce book in original boards.

Ses études sur les arts au Moyen Age et pendant la Renaissance, sur les moeurs et usages sous le Directoire, le Consulat et l'Empire, etc., etc., sont des monuments, et sa bibliographie des ouvrages de Restif de la Bretonne est le modèle du genre, quoique postérieure à celle de Monselet.

        ATHABASCA FUR BRIGADE: Autograph Letter Signed "John Charles" to Alexander Christie, Chief Factor of the York Factory, Reporting of the Brigade's Affairs Before Leaving Norway House to Fort Chipewyan for the Season].

      1830 - Norway House, 1 August 1830. Quarto (ca. 25x20 cm). 3 pp. Addressed, sealed and docketed on the last blank page. Fold marks, minor hole on the last page after opening, slightly affecting the text, otherwise a very good legible letter. An interesting letter from John Charles, a leader of the Hudson's Bay Company's Athabasca Brigade and Chief Factor at Fort Chipewyan (1830-1834), written on the eve of the brigade's departure to the interior for the winter trade. The letter is addressed to Alexander Christie (1792-1872), chief factor of the York Factory, subsequently considered one of the most influential factors of the Hudson's Bay Company. Charles reports on the departure of the Athabasca Brigade, as well as conditions and supplies at Norway House: "We have now nearly made an end of our Business here and expect to move off at the latest in a Day or so. Our four Boats for Athabasca were away Yesterday with an Ample Supply for the Season to meet all Demands. The Goods forwarded by Messrs. Meler & Hargrave for the Men's Equipment were most ample the Men appear quite Satisfied with these Advances, which are the best they ever got." He hopes that when "the Athabasca Brigade will henceforth return from the Plain [?], if we could have a Building of some kind erected for transacting our Business it will be of great Advantage, for at present the want of Sufficient Room even to make a temporary Shop, creates much Inconvenience, and I may add not a little Confusion. I would also be obliged to you to give Orders to have the Boats built for us at this Place, for the New Boats brought from the other Places we generally get the Worst." Charles reports that "in order to prevent too much of some Articles and too little of others being forwarded for Men's Equipment next Spring, I have made out a Requisition, both for Advances and Outfit, which if it can be complied with will be fully Sufficient." He also complains of hard conditions on the Winter Road, resulting in sickness and injury among the Indian accompanying the brigade. Overall a very interesting informative letter.

        The Little Enquirer. Or, Instructive Conversations for Children from Five to Six

      Harvey and Darton, London 1830 - 16mo, vii 76pp, 4 pp advertisements, engraved frontispiece, folding map of the hemispheres, and five other engraved plates, all hand coloured; attractive original marbled boards rebacked with green sheep, gilt title, a little scuffed but very good. Rare: an attractive item of juvenile literature with reference to New Holland and including an intriguing plate and description of the wombat, ultimately derived from David Collins' Account of the English Colony, as well as a charming folding double-hemisphere map with an odd shaped New Holland and Botany Bay. Written as a series of conversations between mother and child, the work provides a remarkable perspective of the colony at the time: 'people who steal or do wicked things in this country [England], are sometimes sent there, away from all their friends, as a punishment, and there they are made to work hard?'. The attractive hand-coloured plate depicting a wombat is another highlight. A section of the accompanying text reads: 'I have here a drawing for you, of a curious animal called a wombat, which was discovered in an island close to New Holland. It is about the size of a large dog.' 'What an ugly looking animal! How was it caught?' 'Why, the man who saw it ran after it, and as it does not run very fast he soon caught it, and lifting it up laid it upon it back across his arm, like a little child.' Like the plate, the spurious assumption that the wombat is a slow beast also derives from the text of Collins' work: rather, the wombat is said to reach speeds of around 40 km/h, near enough to the peak speed of Usain Bolt. Quaker publishers William Darton and Joseph Harvey were well known for juvenile literature, a genre which grew greatly in the first half of the twentieth century. They also published anti-slavery literature and the present volume reflects their abolitionist sympathies: 'It signifies very little what our faces are, if we are good, and do our duty.' Copies of this work are uncommon. Despite having some Australian content and interest, it was not known to Ferguson, although a copy is now recorded in the Mitchell Library. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        NOTICES OF BRAZIL IN 1828 AND 1829. TWO VOLS. COMPLETE.

      Frederick Westley,, London: 1830 - 528 pp.; 541 pp. First edition; rebacked, recased; shellac cloth; black morocco label gilt stamped across; top edge and fore-edge untrimmed; illustrated with 19 lithographs; two fold-out maps. Vol. I: xv; 528 pp.; 1 large plan of Rio, 9 lithographs; vol. II: xii; 541 pp.; 1 map (journey to Minas); unnum. f. with list of illustrations and errata on verso; 10 lithographs. Binding tight; boards with edge wear, corners bumped; moderate foxing internally; see additional images provided. Reverand R. Walsh traveled overland from Rio to Ouro Preto and back. Quoting Borba 934: "Robert Walsh, brother of the Irish poet Edward Walsh, was ordained in 1802 and also took a medical degree in 1820. Walsh was not only a very cultured man, but had traveled widely in other 'underdeveloped' countries and was familiar with cultures other than his own. Thus he attempted to explain the manners and customs of the Brazilians rather than criticize them, and tried to understand them as well as to make the reader appreciate Brazilian culture and the institutions of the young Empire. This approach and his eagerness to learn and observe everything make his book extremely interesting and one of the best about that period. The first 150 pages describe his journey from Portsmouth to Rio via Madeira and the Canaries. He then gives a very interesting r?sum? of Brazil's history from the discovery to the coronation of Pedro I. This r?sum? is not without originality as he relates many details about the time of Jo?o VI and Independence which were told to him by people who witnessed the events. The rest of the first volume is occupied by an extremely accurate description of Rio de Janeiro. The first 300 pages of the second volume contain the account of a journey to the gold mine district. The remainder of the volume is concerned with the slave situation in Brazil, general observations, and an appendix reproducing several documents and a sheet of music with the Imperial anthem composed by Pedro I.

London: Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley,, 1830. and Across the Great Desert, to Morocco, Performed in the Years 1824-1828. 2 volumes, octavo (216 x 312 mm). Modern red straight-grain morocco, raised bands to spine, titles to spine gilt, floral tools to compartments gilt, triple frames to boards gilt, foliate rolls to turn-ins gilt, brown speckled edges, marbled endpapers. Volume I: lithographic portrait frontispiece. Volume II: 5 engraved plates, of which one is folding, and 2 engraved maps. Corners very lightly rubbed, occasional mild foxing. Volume I: frontispiece and titlepage slightly tanned, small chip to top corner of two leaves (pp.105; 107). Volume II: map of Caillié's route loose, with several splits and tears, most of which have been repaired with archival tape to verso. An excellent set. First edition of Caillié's account of his travels in Central Africa between 1824-8; the first French edition was published in Paris the same year. Having sailed to Senegal already at the age of 16, Caillié was fascinated by Africa and returned to Saint Louis in 1824 'determined to be the first European of the modern era to reach Timbuktu' and survive (Howgego). In preparation, he spent eight months with the Brakna Moors to learn Arabic as well as to acquaint himself with Islam and the customs of the desert tribes. Due to financial difficulties, Caillié did not set out for Timbuktu until April 1827 at which point he had acquired some funding by working as a manager of an indigo factory in Sierra Leone; he was further 'encouraged by a prize of 10,000 francs (about £400) offered by the Geographical Society of Paris' to the first European to return with an account of the city. On 19 April 1828, Caillié finally approached Timbuktu by boat and entered the city the next day only to be disappointed: Timbuktu, rather than a place of riches and power, was a small city of about 10,000 inhabitants, dominated by low earthen buildings. After a fortnight, Caillié left the city, joining a caravan of 1,400 camels crossing the Sahara to Morocco and reached Fez on 12 August 1828; he later returned to France from Tangiers, claiming his 10,000 francs reward en route. While the information on Timbuktu is rudimentary at best, Caillie's book makes for an interesting and unsentimental account of the region, written by an explorer who bucked the trend of large expeditions, instead choosing to accustom himself with local language and tradition before travelling on his own along native routes.

        Naval Researches; or A Candid Inquiry in the Conduct of Admirals Byron, Graves, Hood and Rodney in the Actions off Grenada, Chesapeak, St. Christopher’s

      London, 1830. Folding engraved plates with hand coloring. 136 pp. “Being a refutation of the plans and statements of Mr. Clerk, Rear Admiral Ekins, and others...” White served as a young gentleman with Hood, “and was in seven actions with that distinguished officer between the 29th April, 1781, and the 12th April, 1782, on which day the ship he served in was actually engaged with, and captured, the Ville de Paris of 112 guns, bearing the flag of the Count de Grasse.” This work is a defense, based on White’s own experience, as well as naval documents, of the conduct of Graves and others in these decisive sea-battles of the American Revolution. The work is illustrated with ten hand colored folding battle plans. Good stuff, and quite scarce. Sabin 103459. Smith I, 1558. Bound in original cloth with remains of paper label. Wear to backstrip. Light tide mark on lower half of some of the plates. Still a very presentable copy of a scarce book in original boards.

Lewald wendet sich zwar auf dem Titel und dem Vorwort einer eher jungen Leserschaft zu, doch sein geistreicher Witz voller Anspielungen dürfte sich Kindern eher schwer erschlossen haben. Moralisch-pädagogische Glaubensgrundsätze seiner Zeit werden konterkariert, Verleger, Kritiker und die Zensur werden von Lewald verspottet und die Spießigkeit seiner Zeit angegriffen. Dante, Voß und Matthison werden gekonnt persifliert. Der kurze Aufenthalt des jüdischen Schriftstellers, Schauspielers und Regisseurs Lewald in Hamburg (1828) wird von ihm verarbeitet zu "kleineren Leseübungen" zu "Hamburgischen Straßen und Adressen". - Rücken etwas lädiert. Tls. leicht stockfleckig, die hübschen Tafeln sauber und frisch!

        Autograph Manuscript fragment of "Emelian the Fool"

      N.p [St. Petersburg?], n.d [ca. 1830s] - The working manuscript, with deletions and corrections, of the first two pages of George Borrow's translation of the Russian folk tale "Emelian the Fool." As the text differs substantially from the printed version, this is likely one of Borrow's earlier attempts at a translation, perhaps begun in St. Petersburg while he was overseeing a printing of the New Testament into Manchu. Collie and Fraser suppose that the first drafts of Borrow's Russian translations were "written while he was in St. Petersburg, though they were revised later, probably for the proposed publication announced in 1857 in the advertisements at the end of The Romany Rye" (p. 102). "Emelian" was first published in Once a Week, VI, 8 March 1862, and reprinted by T.J. Wise and included in the Avon Booklet II, 1904 and again as a separate publication by Wise in 1913 in an edition of 30. Collie and Fraser list two manuscripts of the story (in the British Library and Worcester), both incomplete 8vo. 2 pp. pen and ink on 2 leaves of blue paper. Worn, with small closed tears at margins.
