        The Cabinet of Natural History and American Rural Sports: Volume I

      Philadelphia: J. & T. Doughty, 1830. First edition. Hardcover. Very good. First edition. Volume I. 4to. vii,[1],298,[2];pp., plus 24 hand-colored lithographic plates, and uncolored engraved portrait of Charles Willson Peale. Engraved title page. Contemporary calf boards, rebacked to style in matching leather, and with the original spine laid-in. Text is brown and spotted, the plates less so with very good coloring. Several pages have been expertly remargined at the fore edge (no loss) else this is a very good copy. Gift inscription on the front free endpaper dated 1832. Very rare and among the first American books to be illustrated with lithographic plates. The Cabinet of Natural History was started by brothers Thomas and John Doughty in Philadelphia. It was issued in monthly parts and ran from the end of 1830 until the spring of 1834 However, despite its relatively short life, it left behind an important legacy: Bennett calls it the "first major sport print color plate book produced in America," the text includes firsthand accounts of hunting expeditions of all kinds and are among the earliest of their kind. The plates include the "first colored sporting prints made in America" (Henderson), and most importantly the work includes a significant number of original lithographs by one of the great names in 19th-century American art. The first volume (made up of twelve parts ) was certainly the work of both Doughty brothers, with virtually all the plates being the work of Thomas. "Artistically, Vol. 1 is much the most important, for it contains the original plates by Thos. Doughty, famous painter and founding father of the Hudson River School" - Bennett. Indeed the plates in the later volumes are from a multitude of hands and sources. "The coloured plates are important - being the first coloured sporting prints made in America. There is only one earlier American book with coloured plates that I know of, and that is a treatise on Medical Botany - published in Philadelphia in 1817. Many of these coloured plates of animals and birds are charming, the colouring is soft, correct as to details, and all are well drawn" - Gee.

        Broadside on cloth: Mary's Lamb in Sunday Lessons, No. 1

      Boston: Boston Chemical Printing Company. [circa1830-32]. First. First edition. Printed on cotton cloth hemmed on four sides. Approximately 12" x 11.5". Several modest and scattered rust stains, but no fraying or other wear, a very good or better example. Printed in three columns divided by lines of type ornaments within an overall border of type ornaments. Cuts at head of each column are of boys in Sunday School; a boy playing with a lamb; and a woman reading to young girls. Five other hymns or prayers surrounding the central poem: Mary's Lamb by Mrs. Hale. Better known now by the first line, "Mary Had a Little Lamb," Hale's poem was first published in the magazine The Juvenile Miscellany. (Boston: Putnam and Hunt, September, 1830) and in book form in Poems for Our Children, also in 1830. A revised version was published by Hale in The School Song Book. (Boston: Allen & Ticknor, 1834). Our version seems to be identical in text to the original version, so our presumption is that this precedes the 1834 The School Song Book. According to OCLC six examples (of four separate titles, not including this one) of broadsides on cloth by this publisher/manufacturer exist in American libraries, one apparently dated 1830, the others attributed to that decade. Thomas Edison made this poem the first words ever recorded when he spoke them into his new invention, the phonograph, in 1877. Rare. .

        ANTOLOGIA, giornale di scienze, lettere ed arti - 1830 anno X COMPLETO - VOLUMI XXXVII-XL Fascicoli dal 109 al 120., Firenze, Gabinetto VIEUSSEUX, 1830

      formato 15,5 x 25,5, brossure con copertine grigie, fogli in barbe e molti ancora chiusi. Buone condizioni generali . Pagine 180-200 per ogni volume + indici ed allegati. La rivista iniziò nel gennaio 1821 e si concluse con il volume 144 del dicembre 1832. La pubblicazione venne soppressa dal Governo del Granducato ed i fascicoli di gennaio e febbraio 1833 vennero stampati ma non pubblicati. (vedi Righini volume I, pag.40 posizione 136) La rivista era nata per ospitare soltanto importanti traduzioni ed estratti da edizioni straniere. Mentre in Europa stavano mutando governi e soprattutto i fermenti patriottici e di "cambiamento prendevano sostanza", il gruppo di intellettuali riuniti attorno alla rivista da G.P. Vieusseux prese coscienza di potere interpretare un ruolo di guida politica di spirito (ad anche marcatamente culturale) LIBERALE ED INNOVATORE APERTO ANCHE ALL'EUROPA e cavalcò questo ruolo moderato per alcuni anni, puntando sul fatto che il Granducato era il solo che permetteva una certa libertà di pensiero. Ebbe un largo successo ed i suoi 500 abbonati superavano di gran lunga quelli di rinomati periodici lombardi e settentrionali. Ma poi si crearono forti ostilità da parte delle autorità , prima con interventi censori e poi con la definitiva chiusura della rivista. Espressione viva del nostro RISORGIMENTO LIBERALE, fu la prima rivista dove lo spirito nazionale si trovò riunito e risvegliò le coscienze. Eccezionale ed autorevole la schiera dei collaboratori.

        Portuguese Naval Signal Book

      This is a dictionary of phrases and words to be sent by means of a Portuguese signaling system. The system employs twenty-nine differently colored and patterned flags and pennants used in varying combinations. The flags are illustrated by hand colored drawings on the first leaf of the book. The following pages assign numbers to types of warships and merchant vessels, commonly used phrases, place names, ports, distances, etc. These numbers would be displayed by the signal flag combinations. This is followed by a lengthy dictionary of words using a double numbering system of signal flags to allow for thousands of combinations. All the words and phrases are in Portuguese. No place, date, or author information is given, but the paper is watermarked “C. Wilmot 1830.” Bound in worn leather over marbled boards.

In his preface Whiting says the ""most modern"" globes are those of Newton and Berry, and the firm appears even in the imprint on the title page as one of the sellers of Whiting's book. Dahl and Gauvin's book Sphaerae Mundi: Early Globes at the Stewart Museum (2000) states the Newton family, ""along with the Cary family, were the most important globe makers in the England in the nineteenth century"" (p. 100).& & But what's this?

Exceptionally clean and in excellent state throughout. Some typical offsetting to the frontispiece of Volume I. VERY SCARCE IN FINE CONDITION AND AN IMPORTANT WORK. James Rennell started his career in geography as a midshipman in the navy. After advancing as far as he could he went to work for the East India Company as Surveyor-General of Bengal. Rennell is most noted for his Atlas of Bengal and most especially for creating the first correct map of India. An injury forced his retirement from Bengal service and he decided to turn his attention to comparative geography, reconciling ancient descriptions with modern maps. He continued to write, create maps and win awards throughout his life. Rennell would become a kind of elder statesman of the British geographic world, throughout his life he would be consulted by geographers seeking his opinions and approval for new projects. This work is a comprehensive historical and geographic survey of the ancient worlds of Africa and Asia. Using the descriptions of Herodotus and other ancient authors Rennell puts them all into a modern context. Each section is accompanied by a map showing and placing ancient sites into their modern positions.

        1. Nave pel trasporto de' Deportati

      Italy,: n.d., circa, 1830.. Two lithographic plates, 105 x 130 mm. each, on a single sheet; disbound, but very good. A rare and unusual piece of transportation history, showing a delightful and rather fanciful depiction of two scenes from the voyages to Sydney.In both scenes there is a distinct sense of classical genre painting, and in both the vessels depicted look closer to Mediterranean brigantines than true convict ships. The first image shows the embarking of the convicts, presumably in England - although one could easily be confused by their casual Mediterranean attire. The second shows the arrival and disembarking of the transport, with the convicts still looking improbably comfortable. It is particularly intriguing that of the six people gathered at the foot of the gangplank, two appear to be naked Aborigines.As with the copy in the National Library of Australia, this print has been disbound.

      Philadelphia: A. Finley, [ca. 1830]. Folding pocket map engraved by Young & Delleker, full contemporary hand-colouring. Folds into publisher's roan covers, covers bordered in blind, upper cover titled in gilt, publisher's ad on the inside front pastedown. (Minor separations at intersecting folds as usual). 8 3/4 x 11 3/8 inches. Rare separately-issued Finley pocket map of Tennessee. Following the initial publications of both his New General Atlas and New American Atlas, Finley issued pocket map versions of many of his maps from those important early American atlases. This map of Tennessee appears to be printed from the same plate as his map of Tennessee which appeared in Finley's New General Atlas of 1831, with the addition of rivers and place names to the neighboring states not found in early editions of the New General Atlas, The map was certainly issued before 1835, as neither Benton nor Lauderdale counties appear on the map. Although diminutive in size, the map still shows good detail, including principal towns, roads, and rivers, and with each county identified. In the southeast corner of the state, a large area of Cherokee lands is depicted. Little is known of Anthony Finley, other than his published work 'but he was probably born around 1790. Judging from contributors to his atlases, he apparently moved in the same Philadelphia circles of engravers and compilers as other contemporary publishers' (Ristow, p.268). Not in Phillips, A List of Maps of America or Rumsey.

        The Ford?s Theater Owner Discusses The Entertainment Business: ?I Will Certainly Press Her Engagement With Great Vigor And Endeavor Successfully To Make Her A Permanent Star Favorite In The Two Cities?

      ALS. 2pg. 5 ¼? x 8?. Sunday. No Place. A rare autograph letter signed ?J.T. Ford? to Mr. Wright, discussing theater business: ?Your anticipated and promised letter did not arrive. Respecting Mrs. Bowers? engagement, I will give her the terms for time in January and Feb. which will be in the least profitable part of the Season. I will certainly press her engagement with great vigor and endeavor successfully to make her a permanent Star favorite in the two cities. With this much understood leave from her if she accepts my offer I will locate the precise day of the commencement in reply after I hear positively from her. Mr. Tayleune has written a most admirable new version of East Lyme and is now engaged on some other dramatizations which I think will be very popular. Mrs. B. have them to read at an early period. Write me immediately.? It is likely this was written to John B. Wright, the stage manager at the Ford Theater when Lincoln was shot. Ford was discussing an appearance by Elizabeth Crocker Bowers (1830-1895), a popular American actress in the mid-Nineteenth Century. Other than a paper clip impression on the top margin, the letter is in fine condition and has a bold signature in black ink.

        Rural Rides in the Counties of Surrey, Kent, Sussex, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Somersetshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, and Hertfordshire:

      London: William Cobbett,, 1830. With Economical and Political Observations relative to matters applicable to, and illustrated by, the State of those Counties respectively. Octavo (186 × 110 mm). Original grey boards, sympathetically rebacked in cloth, printed paper spine label. Boards lightly rubbed, inner hinges strengthened. A very nice copy. First edition of this masterpiece of description and political journalism, deservedly the best known of Cobbett's works. The Rural Rides were originally a series of letters which began in the Political Register, the weekly periodical Cobbett established in 1802 and conducted until his death in 1835. Cobbett wanted to maintain Britain's original state of agrarian equilibrium and his influence was wide: "[he] offered no plan, but owed his popularity to his stinging pen and trenchant criticism. He was an ardent agrarian reformer, a burning opponent of industrialism, a keen social critic and a writer of the best prose in the English language" (see Gregg, A Social and Economic history of Britain, p. 281).

        Autograph letter signed to The Governor Chief Factors & Chief Traders Northern Department

      Norway House [Nelson River, Manitoba, Canada]: 5 January 1830. 2pp. Legal folio. Hudson's Bay Company factor's detailed description of the fur trapping trade in northwestern Canada. John MacLeod was an important figure in the early development of the Hudson's Bay Company in the Canadian Northwest. He was chief factor at Norway House in central Manitoba, a key central location between Hudson's Bay and Lake Winnipeg. In this interesting letter he discusses arrangement for the next trapping season in northern Manitoba: "The Periodical packets from York Factory and Red River having again met here affords me an opportunity of addressing you a few lines respecting the men intended for Portage Laloche next spring ... there are no steersmen wintering and but very few middlemen, Isham who used to go in the capacity of a Steersman is Lame, and as for the Indians hired for that trip last Summer, one of them is wintering in MacKenzie's River, another is at Moose Lake, and a third says he will not go again in consequence of ill treatment he received from some of the men of that Brigade last summer particularly from one Laverdure ... The men wintering here are as follows, 2 Canadian voyagers, 2 orkey men, The Carpenter, Blacksmith, and summer men. The men sent to winter here having arrived so late on the Season, I had to keep all hands Collecting Boats timbers until the Ground was frozen. I however trust the six boats I am directed to get Built here will be Completed by the opening of the navigation. Our Fall fishery was not so productive as usual owing partly to the ice having set in 20 days earlier than I have seen since I came to Norway House. So we must again have recourse to the little winipic. Having the most of the wood required for 6 Boats to haul from 2, 3 & 4 miles Distance I am under the necessity of Keeping a few Dogs about the place for that purpose. As to the trade I have no reason to think it will be less than usual, the period when the Indians at a Distance used to come in has not yet arrived, Some of them are wintering at the Grand Rapit and Moose Lake. Our Stock of provisions now in hand is as follows, viz 90 Large Bags of Pemican, 17 Small [bags], 41 Bags Greas, 12 Kegs flour. I have only to [add] that a few Canoe Cedar timbers and Splinters will be required as in Spring." See the lengthy biography on McLeod in the Dictionary of Canadian Biography.

        Jemte en sann roman, till lexa för andra.

      Stockholm, L. J. Hjerta, 1830. 8:o. (4),+ 79 s. Sammanbunden med: (GUSTAV IV ADOLF.) Betraktelser öfver mina första krigsbedrifter. Af G. A. Gustafsson. Öfversättning. Stockholm, Johan Imnelius, 1820. 8:o. 40 s. Liten fläck på s. 33-34. Sammanbunden med: (MASSON, Charles François Philibert.) Anecdoter rörande f.d. konungens vistande i Petersburg år 1796, och hans felslagna förmälning med storfurstinnan Alexandra, skrifna år 1800. Öfversättning från franskan. Stockholm, Marquardska tryckeriet, 1809. 8:o. 32 s. Obetydliga småfläckar. Samtida hfrbd med blind- och gulddekorerad rygg samt röd respektive grön titeletikett och grönstänkta snitt. Titeletiketterna nötta. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Setterwall 3676, 3741 respektive 3707. Angående det första arbetet har någon antecknat på försättsbladet: "Denna bok, som vill synas hänsyfta på Gustaf IV Adolf, är i grund och botten ej något annant än en simpel bokförläggare-spekulation, som har Lasse Hierta till pappa. - Öfversatt från något främmande språk är den ej och aldra minst författad af G. IV A., utan af en af Hiertas hejdukar." Att den är skriven av Gustav IV Adolf verkar dock ingen numera tvivla på, Setterwall anger att det är en översättning, först publicerad på franska i Leipzig 1829. Första delen av boken är Gustav IV Adolfs tunt förklädda minnesteckning över sin uppväxt och regeringsår. Den avsatte kungen ventilerar sin bitterhet: "sådan blef belöningen för alla mina uppoffringar, min qväfda längtan och mina sorger. Hvartill gagnade min philosophie? Jag tröstar mig genom öfvertygelsen att hafva gjort allt för att uppfylla mina åligganden, och att menniskornas obeständighet vållat det som öfvergått mig". Bokens andra del "Sann roman eller En lexa för andra" är en naiv och idealistisk skildring av Gustav Adolfs förälskelse i en prostituerad kvinna i Aachen, som han försöker förmå sluta med sitt värv och istället bli hans älskarinna. Hon visar sig dock vara trolös. Ytterligare ett bevis för Gustav Adolfs hårda öde, att bli sviken av dem som är skyldiga honom trohet och tacksamhet.Det tredje arbetet är en översättning ur första delen av Massons "Mémoires secrets sur la Russie", som utkom i Paris år 1800, och handlar om kronprins Gustav Adolfs giftermålsplaner

        Zelinda; A Persian Tale

      Whittaker, Treacher & Co., London 1830 - Bound in full contemporary wavy grain calf with bold gilt vine and blossom pattern on both covers and spine, beautiful crimson wavy silk endsheets. Inscribed by the author to his son, William Badnall. A fascinating and vanishingly scarce book of poetry by Richard Badnall, silk, ribbon and button tycoon of the early 1800's in Leek, Staffordshire and a man whose riches to rags story could make an entertaining if not sad novel. Through bad investments, he lost his fortune and nearly landed in debtor's prison. Somehow, during this time he seemed to be able to write poetry, and this volume was received with some praise, though acclaim never landed Badnall reputation, much less remuneration from his writings. He also wrote a treatise on Silk Trade (1828), a book on politics (183) and another on Railroad Improvement (1833), all exceedingly rare. Besides our copy of Zelinda, no copies of any of these books were found at the time of research. Laid in is a handwritten memo from the Society of Geneaogist of London, from Howard H. Cotterell, explaining some details of Badnall's lineage and also citing some of his works mentioned here. Bookplate of Russell markland. Some rubbing to calf. Book is near fine internally.
