        Records of Captain Clapperton's Last Expedition to Africa: by Richard Lander, his Faithful Attendant, and the Only Surviving Member of the Expedition: With the Subsequent Adventures of the Author.

      1830 - London: J.B. Nichols and Son for Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley, 1830. Small 8vo, (190 x 112mm), 2 volumes bound in one. Contemporary half calf gilt over marbled boards, rebacked to style, the modern spine gilt in compartments, gilt leather lettering-piece in one, others decorated with central gilt tools and with date in gilt at the foot, mid-grey endpapers, red-speckled edges; pp. I: [iii]-xxiii, [1 (illustrations and errata)], 310; II: vi, 293, [1 (blank)]; engraved portrait frontispiece by T.A.

I title, occasional light spotting or marking, bound without half-titles and final advertisement l. I, O12 and final [?blank or advertisement] l. II, O4, otherwise a very good set; provenance: Frederick William Halfpenny (bookplate on upper pastedown). First edition. British interest in West Africa -- and specifically Timbuktu and the river Niger -- resulted in several expeditions to the region. In 1822 Hugh Clapperton (1788-1827) joined Dixon Denham and Walter Oudney in an attempt to explore the Niger with a view to commercial possibilities, and Clapperton's success in reaching Kano and Sokoto in modern Nigeria led to a second expedition in 1825, during which he was accompanied by Richard Lander as his attendant and three other Europeans. The expedition disembarked at Badagri on the Nigerian coast and travelled inland, but only Clapperton and Lander survived the journey to Sokoto, where Sultan Belloo forbade them to proceed to the Niger; Clapperton, who had previously contracted dysentery, died before any further progress could be made. Lander returned to the coast, and thence to England with the expedition journals, which he published as Journal of a Second Expedition into the Interior of Africa, from the Bight of Benin to Soccatoo (London: 1829). The following year Lander published the present work, which offers a more personal view of the expedition, and includes details of his own life and of his experiences on the return from Sokoto to Badagri. As he states at the end of his introduction, the Government funded a second expedition by Lander and his brother to trace the route of the Niger, and Lander left in January 1830, and successfully traced the river's course. On their return to Britain in 1831 the brothers -- and particularly Richard -- were feted, and Richard was awarded the Royal Geographical Society's first Gold Medal; 'His discovery that the Niger flowed into the Atlantic was hailed by contemporaries as an event of cardinal importance since it opened up the whole of central Africa to commerce and ultimately to settlement' (ODNB).

        The Book of Mormon: An Account Written by the Hand of Mormon, upon Plates Taken from the Plates of Nephi.

      Palmyra, New York: E. B. Grandin, 1830. First edition. Leather bound. Very good. 588pp. Duodecimo [19 cm] in original full brown sheep, with gilt-ruled spine and gilt-stamped black leather spine label, all edges speckled blue. Extremities rubbed; shallow creasing to spine; evidence of discreet professional repair to front joint. Hinges cracked, but holding; contemporary bookplate on front pastedown, along with a clipping of Joseph Smith's image; contemporary ink name on front free endpaper, dated 1834; front free endpaper almost completely disbound; small portion of rear free endpaper has become affixed to rear pastedown and torn free; foxing throughout, as usual for this edition, else text is unmarked. Housed in custom clamshell case of brown leather with black leather spine label. A very attractive example of this important book. The first edition of the Book of Mormon was printed in an edition of five thousand copies by Egbert B. Grandin in upstate New York. Printing took place between August 1829 and March 1830. The type was set based largely on the so-called "Printer's Manuscript," a transcription made by Oliver Cowdery from Joseph Smith's original manuscript. This transcription, like the original, was almost wholly lacking in punctuation, and was not broken into paragraphs; typesetter John H. Gilbert would remedy these issues as he set the type. The edition includes many variant copies with errors in pagination and spelling. Some of these are due to errors in the Printer's Manuscript, some to errors in typesetting. "[E]rrors were caught and corrected," says Peter Crawley, "but the sheets with the errors were not discarded; then books were assembled from signatures in several stages of correction, producing a large number of variant copies." A highly sought-after book, prized by historical, religious and Mormon book collectors alike. Crawley I 1. Flake/Draper 595. Bibliothica Scallawagiana 230. Howes S 631. Mormon 50: 1. Auerbach 1168.

        Louis Lambert suivi de Séraphita

      First definitive, partly first editions.Half-hearted binder with corners, back with four false nerves adorned with caissons and nets stamped with cold, figure enlacromantiques of the time.Some small foxinges.Precious signed autograph dedication of the author of Honoré de Balzac: "to Mr. Leroy as a testimony of the author's acknowledgment. April 1831. De Balzac ".Exceptional political autograph dedication of the author to Henry Leroy, dedicatee of the ultimate Letter on Paris published in The Thief and witness, in the aftermath of the Three Glorious ones, Balzac's electoral wishes that will profoundly influence his writings.Beyond the political gesture, the gift of these scenes of private life to satisfy its public ambitions, from the beginning of its commitment, inscribed the pre-eminence of the literary project on the political action of the author of La Comédie Humaine .Although he regards the July monarchy as a betrayal, it offers Balzac the opportunity to realize an old dream of political action. Already in 1819 he wrote to his sister: "If I am a fellow ... I can have something more than literary glory, it is beautiful to be a great man and a great citizen. The modification of the conditions of eligibility offers the demiurge the opportunity to participate in the writing of the great history. Balzac, "following in the footsteps of his model, Chateaubriand, wants to combine the functions of thinker and actor in politics" (see P. Baldwin in Balzac and politics ).The maturation of this ambition takes place through the Lettres sur Paris , 19 articles published in Le Voleur between September 1830 and March 1831, and concluding on the famous Investigation on the policy of the two ministries. Never signed, these articles constitute the most important political reflection of Balzac and have given rise, as such, many studies and comments. Each of the Letters is symbolically addressed to a recipient designated only by its initial and its city. Although they were long regarded as fictitious, most of them are now identified, particularly among the author's relatives and influential politicians.Thus, it is following the Letter XVI of February 26, 1831 that is addressed to him, that his friend Samuel Henry Berthoud suggests to Balzac to present itself in his municipality. Enthused by this project, Balzac officially announces his candidacy in the Letter of March 15 and then, on the advice of Berthoud, addresses Letter XIX of March 29 to Mr. L *** in Cambrai, asteronym behind which must be recognized the " Lawyer Henry Leroy, whose Balzac hopes to obtain decisive Cambrian support.The main political hopes of Balzac were to Cambrai, of which he tried to seduce the elites, while Berthoud, editor of the Gazette de Cambrai, promoted and popularized with the people: "M. de Balzac, Is not only a famous writer, he is even more maybe a profound publicist. In support of this assertion, we must quote only the Lettres sur Paris published in Le voleur , in which we note a judgment so sure, a precision so lucid.... Moreover, M. de Balzac is occupied with a publication of popular policy, which ought to contribute greatly to the spreading of education among the poor classes, and better still, to sound ideas. "In doing so, the journalist wrote to his friend and champion: "Hasten [...] to come to Cambrai. We will have the bass drum going and the Society of emulation will serve as an instrument. "It is therefore naturally with Henry Leroy, president of this influential Society of emulation, that Balzac, become correspondent member, deploys its charms. When Berzoud asked about the "kind of political work [which] could support his candidature for Cambrai", Balzac strangely chose this edition of Scènes de la vie privée , which was very little "political" He offered to Henry Leroy through his friend. This is reflected in the letter of thanks addressed to him by the lawyer on May 7, 1831: "M. Berthoud sent me two volumes of the Scenes of Private Life from you . [...] I congratulate myself ... on the possession of the author, which everyone agrees to place among the best writers. On the 19th of March, Berthoud announced in his Gazette the gift of two works by Balzac to the Society of Emulation, the Scenes of Private Life and the Physiology of Marriage . Leroy's missive seems to moderate this information since he only thanks the author for the Scenes .Balzac "eligible voter" as he liked to appear during his campaign, will not get a seat and less than two months after publicly announcing his ambitions, he withdrew from the race. Despite the media accolades of a few unconditional supporters of the great man, including Le Voleur , L'Avenir or the Encyclopedic Review, who predict a great political future for the author, or Fashion, who is not afraid of posing it as Chateaubriand's successor, "Worthy of combining the two titles of writer and statesman" (April 30, 1831), the ephemeral political course of Balzac ended in a bitter failure.Fuztigating the legitimist chatelains of which he claims to be equal, and the republican people - whom he also celebrates by claiming to know the expectations "of the solid part of the nation, that which plows, who works" - Balzac proves himself Poor politician. He never abandoned his hopes and suffered further setbacks in 1832 and 1848, for, as Stefan Zweig notes in his biography, the novelist has always found himself "in practical politics - as in business - on the wrong side ".However, beyond this failure, this first episode determines as much as it reveals the complexity of Balzac's relation to politics which is characterized by a subordination of politics to literature. In Balzac and politics Boris Lyon-Caen noted the obvious "literary polyphony" of Lettres sur Paris, while Pierre Laforgue suspected a very early elaboration (contemporary of this first electoral adventure) of the Scenes of Political Life , In 1842 but haunting the work since 1830.Finally, Pierre Barbéris emphasizes the decisive importance of the Balzacian work of the disillusionment of 1831. Whatever his subsequent declarations of allegiance, Balzac, since 1831, can no longer be a political actor. Indeed, the exhaustive Human Comedy that he elaborates, feeding on the failures of man, will absorb all the forms of political actions and the partisan inclinations of its author. Thus from this article of 1832 titled From the modern government which turns into one of its masterpieces : The Field Doctor.In choosing his Scenes of Private Life as a "political work" to support his candidacy with Leroy, Balzac testifies, from the dawn of his engagement, of the predominance of his literary work on his personal aspirations. There is no doubt that the addressee could not read politics in this totalising work, for, as Balzac himself wrote in Louis Lambert : "Politics is a science without fixed principles, without fixed fixity; It is the genius of the moment, the constant application of force, according to the necessity of the day. "To discover in these scenes a greater political commitment than his electoral ambitions, it would have been necessary that this notable of Cambrai had the perspicacity of Victor Hugo who, at Balzac's funeral, will declare: "Unbeknownst to him, whether he likes it or not Whether he consented or not, the author of this immense and strange work is of the strong race of revolutionary writers.

        The British Flora; comprising the Phaenogamous or Flowering Plants and the Ferns . [Bound with:] Characters of Genera, Extracted from the British Flora

      Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown & Green, London 1830 - (8 x 4 3/4 inches). iii-x, 480; 64pp. [Bound with:] An 8pp. contemporary manuscript being extracts from Hooker's Muscologia Britannica. Contemporary smooth tan calf, a bit scuffed. First edition of Hooker's British Flora, bound with a scarce separately-printed related work. First published here in 1830, Hooker's British Flora would go through eight editions by 1860. "The object which the Author proposed to himself, in preparing a new Flora of the British Empire, was a twofold nature" 1stly, to provide the young Student with a description of our native plants, arranged according to the simplest method; and 2dly, to afford to the more experienced Botanist, a manual, that should be useful in the field as well as in the closet" (Introduction). The second work bound in is particularly uncommon, with only one other example cited in OCLC. The manuscript, possibly in Hooker's hand, extracts descriptions relating to the genera Hepaticae from Hooker's Muscologia Britannica, and would seem to be related to his 1844 continuation of British Flora concerning cryptogamia.

        The Canterbury Tales of Chaucer; with an Essay on his Language and Versification, an Introductory Discourse, Notes, and a Glossary

      London: William Pickering, 1830. Half-Calf. Fine. Second Pickering edition, edited by Thomas Tyrwhitt (1730–86). Five octavo volumes (complete): [4],ccxxii,122; [4],354; [4],290; [4],348; viii,296pp, with two engraved plates, of the Canterbury pilgrimage and a portrait of Chaucer. Period forest-green half-calf, marbled paper-covered boards, spines in five compartments between raised bands with titles and volume numbers in gilt, top edges gilt, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed, marbled end papers. An excellent set, the bindings tight, the pages clean, bright and virtually free of foxing. A number of marginal, mostly two-word annotations in a very neat hand, in pencil (easily erased without a trace but of pedagogic value, particularly pointing out cases in which notes are to be referred to), in vols. I-III. Tyrwhitt's fame rests chiefly upon his edition of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, published in five volumes between 1775 and 1778. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, "Chaucer’s reputation had suffered because the principles on which his verse depends were no longer understood; it was Tyrwhitt who pointed out [expounded here at length in the Glossary in Volume 5] that final e’s (by his time mute) ought to be pronounced as separate syllables and that the accent of a word was often placed in the French manner (e.g., virtúe, not vírtue)." His scholarship is still held in high regard, and this edition of The Canterbury Tales is considered among the finest ever published. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        An earnest appeal to the weavers of Norwich, on the passing events of the present awful crisis.

      Norwich: printed by W. Wilkin Jan. 22 1830 - 12mo., caption title, 12pp., in a fine late 19th century maroon half roan over marbled boards, spine gilt lettered. A fine copy. [bound with], GREEVES, J.W.> A reply to Mr. Geary's appeal to the weavers of Norwich.> Norwich: printed by Jarrold and Son [Feb. 10] 1830. First editions of each pamphlet. The 'present awful crisis' refers to the disastrous loss of trade by the Norwich weavers primarily due to competition from other parts of the country, like Yorkshire, which were able to produce similar fabrics more cheaply. William Geary warns the weavers that combinations (i.e. trades unions) should never 'by any stretch of possibility, be made to promote their aim in regard to a PERMANENT INCREASE OF WAGES' [p.6]. He strongly urges the weavers to return to work in spite of their obvious suffering. J.W. Greeves answers with a full account of the trials and tribulations of the Norwich weavers since about 1820. He advises the weavers to consider 'co-operation', not confrontation. This would surely 'save them until. the period shall arrive when they must be reinstated to their long lost just and lawful rights as freeborn Englishmen' [p.23]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
