        New Terrestrial Globe

      London 1831 - This terrestrial globe is the smallest version made by Newton and Berry (Sumira p. 189). Wonderful detail included for such a small globe. The track of Captain Cook's final voyage of 1776 is shown when Captain Clarke and Gore sail to the Bering Sea after Cook is murdered. John Newton (1759-1844) is the founding member of this family firm. Miles Berry joined the firm in 1803. They also made planetaria, and mechanical models. An excellent example of a pocket globe. Miniature globe in turned walnut case with domed lid. 1.5 inch diameter. 12 hand colored globe gores with original varnish and metal pins at each pole which enable the globe to spin in the case. Carouche set in north Pacific. Stains along the equator in the Pacific.

        SKETCH OF THE LIFE AND MILITARY SERVICES OF GENERAL JOHN ADAIR, WRITTEN PRINCIPALLY IN 1820 BY JUDGE WILLIAM BLAIR, AND CONTINUED TO THE PRESENT TIME BY A FRIEND

      Harrodsburg, Ky.: Printed at the American Office, 1831.. 20pp. Later plain paper wrappers. Small chip to outer margin of titlepage, minor foxing, mild tanning to first couple of leaves, misaligned printing of pp.7-8 costing the page number. Good. In a half leather clamshell case. A rare biography of General John Adair, first published in Washington the preceding year. Adair was a tireless defender of Kentucky troops against Andrew Jackson's accusations of their cowardice in the War of 1812, and unfortunate defendant against unfounded treason conspiracy charges involving Vice President Aaron Burr. "This interesting life of Adair (born 1759) is included here because of its account of his arrest in New Orleans by General Wilkinson in January, 1806, as a partner in the Burr conspiracy, and sent off by ship to Baltimore, where he was quickly freed. Later he got a judgment of $2500 against Wilkinson for unlawful arrest, which the government paid. Later he was elected governor of Kentucky" - Streeter. "Has been attributed to Judge James Blair; also to a Mrs. White" - Howes. OCLC records only five copies; the Streeter copy realized $1500 in 1968. HOWES A39, "aa." STREETER SALE 1710. OCLC 4985797.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Keeß").

      O. O., 26. XII. 1831. - 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Ihr liebes Schreiben beantworte ich gaar [!] etwas spät, inzwischen glaube ich Nachsicht von Ihnen erwarten zu dürfen, wenn ich Ihnen sage, daß seit einigen Monaten leider meine Augen so geschwächt sind und ich oft so anheftigen Augenschmerzen leide, daß ich mir [das] Schreiben möglichst ersparen muß. Aus Ihrer Sorge um uns in der bösen Krankheitszeit sehe ich, wie gut und freundschaftlich Sie es mit uns meinen. Inzwischen hat uns Gott doch alle beschützt, wenn gleich bei einigen uns werthen Familiengliedern Spuren des Uebels nicht ganz ausblieben. Am übelsten waren der arme Waldstätten, seine Tochter Paulette und seine Schwägerin daran. Sie lagen alle zugleich krank und die vortreffliche Mathilde sorgte für alle und hatte aber als Lohn ihrer Sorgfalt auch die Freude, ihre Angehörigen, wenn gleich langsam, doch wieder vollkommen genesen zu sehen [.]". - Seit 1810 als erster Kommissar der niederösterreichischen Fabrikeninspektion das Gewerbewesen Niederösterreichs (zu dem damals auch Wien zählte) begutachtend, legte sich Keeß in jenen Jahren eine große Sammlung von Fabrikaten und Rohstoffen zu, die den Grundstock für das 1819 unter dem damaligen Kronprinzen und späteren Kaiser Ferdinand I. von Habsburg-Lothringen gegründete Technische Kabinett in Wien bildete (etwa 30.000 Exponate). Keeß wurde 1835 Direktor des Hauses, dessen Sammlung nach seinem Tod 1842 dem Polytechnischen Institut überlassen wurde. "Keeß, der auch zum Aufbau der Technologischen Abteilung des Badner Rollettmuseums beitrug, verfügte über ein bedeutendes technisches Wissen, machte selbst mehrere Erfindungen und führte bis zwei dahin nicht beachtete Tonsorten aus der Kremser Gegend einer Verwertung zu. Seine in präziser Weise abgefaßten Schriften über die Entwicklung des Gewerbes in Österreich bildeten die Grundlage für eine Geschichte des Handels und Fabrikswesens" (ÖBL III, 281). - Stellenweise etwas fleckig und mit einem kleinen Randeinriß, sonst gut erhalten; Bl. 2 mit einer zweiseitigen Nachschrift von Keeß' Sohn oder Tochter.

        "Communication Extraordinary!!" [Caption title]

      [Philadelphia, 1831]. 4to (28.4 x 23 cm). Broadside. Small perforation at central fold, with loss of a few letters; two ink spots in first paragraphs not affecting legibility . Very rare broadside concerning an encroachment dispute between Stephen Kingston of Philadelphia, and the Holy Trinity Catholic Church - established by German Catholics - over their adjoining properties. Kingston, an Irish American merchant and ship owner, expresses his outrage over the Church's intention of pulling down an adjacent wall, and proclaims that "evil is returned for good, injury for kindness ... if the Germans expect to extort more money from me because I'm an Irishman, they are mistaken ..." Among his services to the Catholic Church, Kingston mentions his help in quelling the anti-Catholic Gordon riots of 1780; his personal contributions in 1788 to the buildings of Philadelphia's Holy Trinity Catholic Church; "in 1793 I relieved 68 of the French fugitives of St. Domingo aat Bermuda, all Catholics ...", etc

        JOURNAL HISTORIQUE DE L'ÉTABLISSEMENT DES FRANÇAIS A LA LOUISIANE.

      New Orleans & Paris. 1831. - [4],412pp. Contemporary calf, gilt; rebacked, corners repaired. Lightly foxed. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. "This JOURNAL HISTORIQUE, a reprinting without preface or notes of a manuscript giving no indication of its source, is written in the third person and is usually considered as by La Harpe. It tells, at pages 144- 178, of La Harpe's expedition from New Orleans in October, 1718, to establish a post on the Red River, from which he returned in January, 1720, and at pages 233-236 and pages 257-276 of two expeditions to St. Bernard's Bay, the first in the summer and fall of 1720, and the second under command of La Harpe, which sailed August 15, 1721, and returned October 3. There is also an extensive account of the two St. Denis expeditions across Texas in 1714 and 1719, the first reference to this being on page 116" - Streeter. Although Streeter calls this a "reprinting," it is in fact the first printing of the text. Despite a dual imprint on the titlepage showing both New Orleans and Paris, this book was actually printed solely in Paris. Another imprint, that of Paul Renouard, appears on the verso of the half title. "Chief authority for the period covered, 1698-1723" - Howes. A surprisingly rare work, of major importance for the early history of Louisiana. JUMONVILLE 720. STREETER TEXAS 1126. HOWES L24, "aa." RAINES, p.134. SABIN 38631.

        Insurrection of the Blacks [Nat Turner's Revolt]

      Baltimore: Niles Weekly Register, 1831. _. Newspaper. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Some of the earliest reporting on Nat Turner's revolt in Southampton, Virginia, which began on 21 Aug 1831. These are the first two issues of the Niles' Weekly Register (27 Aug 1831 and 3 Sep 1831) to recount the events. The 27 Aug paper, which is especially scarce, devotes 13.5 column inches and includes the initial report of the violent attacks published in the Norfolk Herald. The 3 Sep paper, which is less scarce though still uncommonly found, contains 18 column inches, corrects some errors from the previous week's report, and provides additional details. The newspapers were once bound. Both are clean and supple with some light toning. The leaves of the 27 Aug edition have some edge wear at the upper right margins. Together these two newspapers provide an extraordinary contemporary record of the slaughter in which about 40 slaves hacked, stabbed, and clubbed to death 60 white people. Many of the victims were killed in their sleep and most of those killed were women and young children, eleven of whom were decapitated after being trapped in a school classroom.

        [pt. 3] Nerine Aurea

      Mrs. Edward Bury (Priscilla Susan Falkner). Aquatint engraving with original hand color from A Selection of Hexandrian Plants belonging to the Natural Orders Amaryllidae and Liliaceae ...Printed and published by Robert Havell, Jr. London, 1831-34. Paper size: 19 ½? x 25?. Condition: Very Good.This splendid image is from the only edition of one of the finest monographs of the period, particularly exciting for the large size of the engravings and the spectacular presentation of the subject. The team of Priscilla Bury and the engraver Robert Havell surpassed their own goal as eloquently articulated in the preface of the work, which they described as ?an endeavor to preserve some memorial of the brilliant and fugitive beauties of a particularly splendid and elegant tribe of plants.?The success of Bury?s work definitely owes much to the contributions of Robert Havell, who is best known for having engraved and colored the first edition of Audubon?s stunning ?Birds of America.? Produced concurrently with Audubon?s work, Havell also engraved and colored Bury?s ?Hexandrian Plants.? Both the Audubon aquatints and the Bury work exhibit Havell?s mastery of line, tone and color.Widely regarded as one of the most affecting color-plate botanical works of the period, the freshness and energy of Bury?s ?Hexandrian Plants? is as distinctive today as it was at the time of publication. The work is rare, with the original subscribers list indicating that there were only 79 complete sets produced, many of which have not survived to the present day. These splendid examples are particularly notable and unique for originating from Havell?s personal copy of the ?Hexandrian Plants,? which he never trimmed or bound for publication, leaving the margins full and ensuring the fineness of the engraving and coloring.Journal of the Society for the Bibliography of Natural History. Volume 5, Page 71-75 DOI 10.3366/jsbnh.1968.5.PART_1.71, ISSN 0260-9541

      Leipzig, 1831 und 1832.. Zusammen 10 (3+3+1+2+1) Seiten Gr.-4to, 4to und 8vo. Tls. mit eh. Adresse (Faltbriefe).. An Adolph Wilhelm Otto (1786-1845), Professor für Anatomie und Direktor des anatomischen Museums in Breslau. - I: "Der Nachtrag zum Verzeichnisse des anat[omischen] Mus[eums] hat mich und alle, den[en] ich ihn zeigte[,] in Erstaunen gesetzt, Gott verleihe Ihnen Kräfte auch fernerhin so thätig zum besten der Ihnen anvertrauten Institute zu wirken, - aber vergessen Sie auch Ihre Gesundheit nicht und Ihre liebe Familie, der so wie Ihren zahlreichen Freunden und Verehrern die Erhaltung derselben sehr am Herzen liegt [...] An Prof. Weber [d. i. der Anatom und Physiologe Ernst Heinrich Weber, 1795-1878] habe ich das Paquetchen und die Dissertation zur Auswahl übergeben, da er die rein anatomischen besser brauchen kann als ich, andre sammelt er nicht; einige waren ihm und mir sehr erwünscht, manche würde ich Ihnen gern zurückgeben, da Andre sie vielleicht besser brauchen können als ich und Sie sich gar zu sehr beraubt haben. Beigehend erhalten Sie einige derjenigen Leipziger Dissertationen, die zu den besseren gehören [...]" (Brief v. 7. VII. 1830). - II: "Beifolgend erhalten Sie ein kleines von Clarus [d. i. Johann Clarus, 1774-1854] redigi[e]rtes Schriftchen, welches die Frucht gemeinsamer Arbeiten mehrer[er] jüngerer Docenten auf hiesiger Universität enthält. Der Verein hat mich beauftragt es Ihnen hochachtungsvoll zu übersenden [...]" (Brief v. 2. I. 1831). - III: "Durch die Aufnahme in die Schles[ische] vaterländ[ische] Gesellschaft bin ich sehr erfreut worden; ich wünsche, daß ich wenigstens dereinst im Stande sein möge ihr dafür einigermaßen nützlich zu werden; danken Sie ihr einstweilen in meinem Namen für die mir gethane Ehre und Auszeichnung und nehmen Sie selbst meinen herzlichen Dank für Ihre dabei für mich gehabte große Güte. Vor einigen Tagen bin ich vom hiesigen Buchhändler Baumgärtner aufgefordert worden eine temporäre Zeitschrift über die Cholera herauszugeben, für die ich den Titel: Mittheilungen des Neusten und Wissen[s]würdigsten gewählt habe [...]" (Brief v. 26. VIII. 1831; mit. kl. Ausr. am oberen Blattrand durch Öffnen der Verschlußmarke und kl., unbed. Einr. am linken unteren Rand). - IV: "Ueber Ihre glückliche Rückkehr nebst Ihrer lieben Familie [...] haben wir uns herzlich gefreut und hätten wir gewünscht, die garstige Cholera hätte die lieben Einwohner des in unsrer Erinnerung so freundlich lebenden Breslau verschont. Allen Berichten nach ist aber die Sache von fern viel schlimmer als in der Nähe, und so hoffen wir auch, daß Gottes schützende Hand und Ihre Vorsicht Sie sämtlich durch die Gefahr glücklich hindurch führen wird. Durch Pr[ofessor] Gaupp [d. i. der Rechtshistoriker Ernst Theodor Gaupp, 1796-1859] habe ich erfahren, daß Sie einige Sectionen an Ch[olera] verstorbener gemacht haben; dies hat in mir den lebhaften Wunsch rege gemacht, etwas darüber von Ihrer gewandten Feder für mein Blatt zu erhalten. Was ich bis jetzt von den Sectionen weiß, scheint nicht viel über das Wesen der Krankheit zu offenbaren, vielleicht ist es Ihrer Genauigkeit und Sorgfalt im Beobachten gelungen etwas zu beobachten [ ]" (Brief v. 3. XI. 1831). - V: "Noch liegt mir Ihr lieber Brief vom 25/2. zur Beantwortung vor, in dem Sie mir die fröhliche Nachricht von der bevorstehenden Entbindung Ihrer verehrten Frau Gemahlin mittheilen. Durch Dr. Göppert habe ich erfahren, daß Ihr freundlicher Familienkreis mit einer Tochter vermehrt worden, wozu ich Ihnen meiner & meiner guten Frau herzliche Glückwünsche bringe. Es geschieht dies leider etwas spät, aber nicht minder herzlich; kurz nach Empfang der erfreulichen Nachricht glaubte ich Ihnen fast täglich eine gleiche Nachricht von meiner Frau mittheilen zu können, was sich jedoch bis zum 18t April verzögerte, wo Sie von einem kräftigen u[n]d starken Knaben glücklich entbunden worden ist [ ] Wenige Tage nach Empfang Ihres Briefes erhielt ich auch das Heft von Wusts Magazin in welchem Ihre Beobachtungen über die Ch[olera] enthalten sind. Ich habe sie mit vielem Interesse nicht nur gelesen, sondern auch für Nr. 68 der Mittheilungen ausgezogen. Werden Sie nicht vielleicht irgendwo Nachträge dazu liefern, oder haben sich auch im spätern Verlaufe der Epidemie die früher gemachten Beobachtungen fortan bestätigt? [ ]" (Brief v. 5. V. 1832, mit kl. Einr. und Läsuren am linken und rechten Blattrand). - Justus Radius wurde 1825 außerordentlicher Professor mit den besonderen Arbeitsgebieten Hygiene und allgemeine Pathologie; später Wundarzt und zwei Jahrzehnte lang Hausarzt am Leipziger Georgenhaus, das u. a. auch Geisteskranke beherbergte, wurde Radius nach dem Tode Johann Heinroths 1843 von der Universität zusätzlich mit der Lehre der Psychischen Heilkunde beauftragt. 1848 wurde er ordentlicher Professor der Pharmakologie und allgemeinen Therapie, 1859 für Pharmakologie und Hygiene. - A. W. Otto nahm "unter den älteren Vertretern der pathologischen Anatomie und vorzugsweise der Teratologie (Mißbildungen) in Deutschland eine sehr ehrenwerthe Stellung ein [...] [A]uf seine Anregung wurde in den Jahren 1834 und 1835 ein neues anatomisches Theater erbaut, und er selbst hat zu einem nicht geringen Theile zur Vervollständigung des ausgezeichneten anatomischen Museums beigetragen, das eine Zierde der wissenschaftlichen Institute Breslau's bildet" (ADB XXIV, 745). - Aus der Sammlung Ammann.

The first complete book describing Western Australian settlement. First edition: rare. The first full book to describe newly-settled Western Australia; Powell&#39;s work was preceded only by some very scarce emigration pamphlets published in 1830.Powell&#39;s book is well known for the frontispiece map "A Plan of Swan River Settlement, and the Surrounding Country", which shows the coastline from Geographe Bay to just north of the Swan River, noting particularly Perth, "Freemantle", and the intended town of Clarence, as well as clearly delineating Rottnest Island. The "narrative and account are compiled from several letters addressed by a young man of respectability (now resident at the Swan River) to his relations in England… no statement is presented herein which is not in strict accordance with the truth" (author&#39;s advertisement). Powell dedicated the book to the conservative statesman Sir Robert Peel, whose cousin Thomas Peel was an influential settler.Powell&#39;s letters were dated from Fremantle in November, 1829.

        pt. 10] Amaryllis Vittata, minor

      Robert Havell 1831 - Mrs. Edward Bury (Nee Priscilla Susan Falkner). Aquatint engraving with original hand color from A Selection of Hexandrian Plants belonging to the Natural Orders Amaryllidae and Liliaceae Printed and published by Robert Havell, Jr. London, 1831-34. Paper size: 6 ½&#148; x 23&#148;. Condition: Very Good. This splendid image is from the only edition of one of the finest monographs of the period, particularly exciting for the large size of the engravings and the spectacular presentation of the subject. The team of Priscilla Bury and the engraver Robert Havell surpassed their own goal as eloquently articulated in the preface of the work, which they described as &#147;an endeavor to preserve some memorial of the brilliant and fugitive beauties of a particularly splendid and elegant tribe of plants.&#148; The success of Bury&#146;s work definitely owes much to the contributions of Robert Havell, who is best known for having engraved and colored the first edition of Audubon&#146;s stunning &#147;Birds of America.&#148; Produced concurrently with Audubon&#146;s work, Havell also engraved and colored Bury&#146;s &#147;Hexandrian Plants.&#148; Both the Audubon aquatints and the Bury work exhibit Havell&#146;s mastery of line, tone and color. Widely regarded as one of the most affecting color-plate botanical works of the period, the freshness and energy of Bury&#146;s &#147;Hexandrian Plants&#148; is as distinctive today as it was at the time of publication. The work is rare, with the original subscribers list indicating that there were only 79 complete sets produced, many of which have not survived to the present day. These splendid examples are particularly notable and unique for originating from Havell&#146;s personal copy of the &#147;Hexandrian Plants,&#148; which he never trimmed or bound for publication, leaving the margins full and ensuring the fineness of the engraving and coloring.

        De curtorum chirurgia per insitionem libri duo...

      . Recogn. et editit M.Troschel, M.D.Viro clarissimo J.F. Dieffenbach, summo aetatis suae rhinoplastae. - Berlin, 1831, 8°, XVI, 436, mit vielen Abb., 4 lith. Falttaf., Halbledereinband der Zeit.. Vierte und letzte Ausgabe nach mehr als 200 Jahren des Erscheinens der ersten drei Auflagen. - The fourth and last edition of the pioneer work on plastic surgery. Its appearance marked the revival of interest in the rhinoplastic procedures which v.Graefe and Dieffenbach stimulated in Germany. This edition, also in octavo but with a longer page than the 1598 edition, was issued in Berlin in 1831, revised and edited by Dr. Maximilian Troschel, printed and financed by G.Reimer, and dedicated to the great Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach. Shorn of all explanatory verbiage, the title was returned to its original wording in the simple "De curtorum chirurgia per insitionem, libri duo", which stands on the title-page. The index of chapters is followed by a statement of dedication to Dieffenbach, and then by the a Preface of Troschel (pp.V-XIV). The text has consecutive pagination (1-432), to which are added four (433-436) of explanatory data on the tables. Six folded tables each containing several lithographic drawings adapted from the illustrations of the first edition, complete the volume. -cf. Gnudi & Webster, p. 194; Zeis 179; Waller 9453; 32500.

        Golden City

      A wonderfully detailed hand colored lithograph by A.E. Mathews (1831-1874) ?from his series "Pencil Sketches of Colorado,?its cities, principal towns and mountain scenery", which was published in 1866. Overall this print measures 13"x19.5".?This stunning lithographic ?view of the Rocky Mountains was created a full half-century before the mountain range and the?surrounding areas gained national park status in 1915. As one of the premier views of Colorado ever produced, this rare Mathews’?lithograph is a romantic and picturesque depiction of the pure Colorado landscape, reflecting the fervor for Westward expansion?that was dominant in mid nineteenth-century thought. This view, with its sweeping snow-capped mountains and low, tree-dotted?hills is a marvelous representation of the “unblemished” American western landscape that captured the imagination of settlers?in the early years of the United States.??The Lewis and Clark Expedition from 1804-1806 was the first scientific reconnaissance of the Rocky Mountains. Specimens were?collected for contemporary botanists, zoologists, and geologists. The expedition was said to have paved the way to (and through)?the Rocky Mountains for European-Americans from the East, although Lewis and Clark met at least 11 European-American mountain men?during their travels. Mountain men, primarily French, Spanish, and British, roamed the Rocky Mountains from 1720 to 1800 seeking?mineral deposits and furs. The fur-trading North West Company established Rocky Mountain House as a trading post in what is now?the Rocky Mountain foothills of Alberta in 1799, and their business rivals the Hudson's Bay Company established Acton House?nearby.??The human history of this region can be traced back to the last great Ice Age, when the Rocky Mountains were home first to?Paleo-Indians and then to the indigenous peoples of the Apache, Arapaho, Bannock, Blackfoot, Cheyenne, Crow, Flathead, Shoshoni,?Sioux, Ute, Kutenai (Ktunaxa in Canada), Sekani, Dunne-za, and others. Paleo-Indians hunted the now-extinct mammoth and ancient?bison in the foothills and valleys of the mountains. Like the modern tribes that followed them, Paleo-Indians probably migrated?to the plains in fall and winter for bison and to the mountains in spring and summer for fish, deer, elk, roots, and berries. In?Colorado, along the crest of the Continental Divide, rock walls that Native Americans built for driving game date back 5,400-5,800 years. A growing body of scientific evidence indicates that indigenous peoples had significant effects on mammal populations?by hunting and on vegetation patterns through deliberate burning.??A.E Mathews was an English immigrant whose early career was that of a traveling bookseller and artist. During his service in the?Civil War he drew scenes of the conflict which were published as lithographs. In 1865, Mathews moved west and began producing the?lithographs for which he is best known: images of Colorado, Montana and Rocky Mountain scenery. These views are among the?earliest and rarest for the Rocky Mountain West and their detail provides important historical documentation.Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing/staining/creasing in margins

        Traite de lausculation mediate, et des maladies des poumons et du coeur. 3 Bde.

      . Troisieme Edition, Augmentee de Notes par Meriadec Laennec. - Paris, J.S. Claude, 1831, 8°, (4), XXXII, 540; (4), 551, (1); (4), 416 pp., mit 4 lith. Doppeltafeln, in 3 Halbledereinbänden der Zeit; Rücken erneuert.. "The first (1819) and second (1826) editions of Traite de l'auscultation mediate were published during Laennec's lifetime, the third edition (1831) was published by his cousin, Meriadec Laennec with his notes, and the fourth edition (1837) by Andral (1797-1876) with his notes. Forbes's translation of Laennec's Traite was first published in 1821, the second edition, 1827, third edition 1829 and fourth edition, 1834. An American edition of Forbes's translation was published in Philadelphia, 1823, and a second American edition (of the third English edition) in New York, 1830 and a third in 1835 (fourth English edition). The first German edition was published in Weimar, 1822. - Laennec's contribution to diseases of the lungs was of more importance than that to heart disease, for the cause of the heart sounds was unknown in 1819. He made a fundamental error in attributing the second sound to atrial systole. In his first edition (1819), he regarded the bellows murmur as evidence of valvular obstruction; in the second edition (1826) he revised his opinion and regarded the murmur as due to spasm of the heart, a muscular sound. He also discarded the new laether sound described by Collin (no. 465), his chef de clinique, as due to pericarditis, and attributed it to cardio-pulmonary bruit. So in the second edition he fell into worse error than in the first." Bedford, p.96
