        GRAND RAPIDS IN 1831.

      [N.p. after 1831]. - Pencil sketch on cardstock, 8 x 10 inches. Lower margin titled in pencil, "Grand Rapids in 1831." Initialed lower right, "A.E.C.," and inscribed lower left, "Drawn by Rev. J. Booth." Minor stain along left margin, partially extending into sketch, and lower right corner, just touching bottom right corner of sketch, some creasing, small chip to lower right corner. Good. A detailed rendering of Grand Rapids as Baptist Missionary Reverend John Booth remembered it in 1831, executed after a pencil sketch produced by him housed at the Grand Rapids Public Library. The drawing, initialed by the artist "A.E.C." at lower right, shows an Indian camp in the foreground, including a wigwam, shelter, and canoe, with three buildings further downriver representing the fur trading post of Louis Campau, an important figure in the early settlement of Grand Rapids as well as Saginaw. Across the Grand River, referred to as Owashtanong by the Indians, a cluster of buildings used by the Baptist mission can be seen. The single cabin on the small hill to the left of the mission belonged to Ottawa Chief Noonday. Note the island at far left, which was the first of four islands that were subsequently filled in and made part of the Grand River's east bank. English native John Booth moved to the United States as a young boy. He served as a pastor for churches in Pennsylvania and New Jersey before venturing to Michigan Territory in 1829, where he would remain for the next forty years. In 1831, Reverend Booth assisted at the small mission on the Grand River for a brief amount of time, later producing his pencil sketch of the area for his family. The artist of this study of Booth's sketch is unknown to us. An interesting view of early 19th-century Michigan, including a Native American encampment.

        Some account of the early part of the life of Elizabeth Ashbridge, who died, in the service of the truth, at the house of Robert Lecky, in the county of Carlow, Ireland, the 16th of 5th month, 1755

      Providence: H. H. Brown, for the Trustees of Obadiah Brown's Fund, 1831. 12mo, pp. 60; original drab front wrapper; some browning, very good. Preceded by several other editions between 1774 and 1820, this poignant autobiography chronicles the spiritual journey of an independent woman in a patriarchal world. Born in England in 1713, Elizabeth Ashbridge eloped at the age of 14, but within several months she was a widow. After her parents refused to take her in she went to Ireland to live with Quaker relatives. At the age of 19 she immigrated to the United States where she was indentured as a servant in New York. After two years she managed to purchase her freedom from a cruel master, then married a teacher named Sullivan who proved to be abusive. Disappointed that the Anglican ministry was closed to women, she tried other denominations, but became disenchanted with clerics indifferent to her aspirations. Visiting Quaker relatives in Pennsylvania, she converted. Her growing independence and secular life increasingly alienated her husband. After Sullivan's death, quickened by habitual drunkeness, she married Aaron Ashbridge, a respected Quaker from Chester Co., Pennsylvania. Elizabeth Ashbridge overcomes an authoritarian father, a cruel master, an abusive husband, and the hypocrisy of the priestly class. In her failed marriage and in her faith, Ashbridge chooses conscience over convention. Her story provides a unique perspective on the situation of women at the time of the Great Awakening. A thriving Quaker population in Rhode Island likely accounts for the publication of this edition, paid for by the Obadiah Brown Fund, which was founded in Providence in 1823 by bequest of Obadiah Brown "to be a fund, independent of New England Yearly Meeting, to enhance the Religious Society of Friends through grants to individuals and Friends organizations, and specifically for 'the printing and disseminating of useful books for the promulgation of the gospel and by that means, as well as, otherwise spreading our Religious Principals where they are little known'." Obadiah Brown was the son of Moses Brown, the founder of the Quaker School in Rhode Island (i.e. Moses Brown), and the nephew of John Brown, founder of Brown University. The original bequest from Brown was $100,000, said to be the largest single bequest to an institution of learning up to that time. The Obadiah Brown Fund exists to this day. This edition not in Smith, Friend's Books (see pp. 135-36); American Imprints (30)-5802.

        A HEARTFELT AND NEWSY LETTER FROM ONE OF THE FIRST PROFESSORS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA TO A FRIEND IN ENGLAND; Four-page stampless letter from Charles Bonnycastle to John Knowles

      University of Virginia, 1831. Unbound. Very good. This four-page stampless folded letter measures 15.5" x 9.75" unfolded. The letter was sealed with a black wax family crest showing a blazon with three suns in splendor, one and two. The cover is postmarked with an oval "University / of Virga" handstamp dated June 21. A manuscript "Paid to N York 18¾" is in the upper right corner indicating the sender pre-paid postage to mail the letter a distance of between 150 and 400 miles. A rectangular black receiving mark that reads "Ship Letter / Liverpool" is on the reverse. The front of the cover also has a manuscript British rate mark indicating 1 shilling 7 pence (19 pence) was due upon delivery (8 pence ship letter charge plus 11 pence for the delivery to London from Liverpool). The letter is in nice shape. In this letter to his friend, John Knowles, Bonnycastle expresses the longing he feels for his friends in London, discusses his planned investments (possibly the James River and Kanawha Canal Company), complements Knowles on his latest work, The Life of Fuseli (published in March, 1831), expresses admiration of his friend Peter Barlow's latest optical inventions, and comments teaching mathematics at the University of Virginia: "My own pursuits are pretty well limited to teaching [a] young idea to shoot; & though the Universities of this country have been [aptly] designated as hospitals for incurables, yet here & there a shoot thrives well [enough.] The senior class are just entering the Mécanique Celeste (Celestial Mechanics), & the juniors are learning addition, so, you see, I have a wide range." Bonnycastle was one of the University of Virginia's first professors having been lured away from the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich by Thomas Jefferson in 1825. He initially was appointed as the first Chair of Natural Science, but soon transferred positions to become the university's Professor of Mathematics. In addition to his teaching responsibilities some of Jefferson's correspondence suggest that Bonnycastle also assisted in designing an observatory and classrooms. He died young in 1840 and is buried in the University Cemetery. Today, one of the university's residence halls, Bonnycastle House, and one of it streets, Bonnycastle Drive, are named in his honor. A portrait of Bonnycastle is said to hang in the university president's office. Quite an enlightening and heartfelt personal letter from one of the original University of Virginia faculty members made all the more desirable by an exceptional strike of a very early school postmark (see ASCC). Exceptionally scarce. As of 2017, nothing similar is for sale in the trade nor listed in auction records at ABPC or Rare Book Hub. OCLC shows no similar personal Bonnycastle letters at any institution, although the University of Virginia holds photostat copies of some letters Bonnycastle sent to Knowles. Also, the University of Virginia and the Thomas Jefferson Foundation both hold some official correspondence between Bonnycastle, Thomas Jefferson, and the university's board and proctor.

        Life And Writings Of Henry Fuseli, Esq. M.A.R.A. [Keeper, And Professor Of Painting To The Royal Academy In London; Member Of The First Class Of The Academy Of St. Luke At Rome [COMPLETE IN THREE VOLUMES].

      Henry Colburn And Richard Bentley, London 1831 - Henry Fuseli RA (German: Johann Heinrich Füssli; 1741 - 1825), Swiss painter, draughtsman and writer on art who spent most of his life in Britain where his work is said to have influenced many of the artists of his age including William Blake and his pupils included John Constable, Benjamin Haydon, William Etty, and Edwin Landseer. Books - originally bound in thin, brown paper covered boards with green cloth spines and paper labels, here professionally rebound in similar light brown/beige paper covered boards, green cloth spines with paper labels. Contents, new, linen webbing to strengthen binding, new paste downs, free front and rear end papers. Light browning to portrait frontispiece (volume 1) and all three title pages with slight marking to the occasional page in all three volumes. Volume one has slight marking to pages 323 and 418 and there is slight marking to the occasional page otherwise the contents are clean and tightly bound. [NB. The contents pages in volume two and three were misprinted on the sheets meaning that the title page of volume two was printed on the same pair of leaves, or conjugate, with the contents page for volume three and likewise the title page for volume three is conjugate with the contents for volume two, meaning that they are in the wrong volumes. This is obviously a little inconvenient so we have included a copy of each page in the correct volume. It would be simple enough to make a more permanent correction by removing and tipping the two misplaced pages in to the correct volumes but we feel that would spoil the charm of having such a scarce set being 'as printed'. Overall an attractive copy of this scarce and important biography. Size: 9 inches tall by 5.5 inches. xvi, 439, 391, 408 rough trimmed pages which includes an appendix in volume one. Full page black and white frontispiece portrait to volume one. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Biography & Autobiography; Art & Design. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. Inventory No: 9109. This is a SET of books, therefore heavier than a standard volume, and will involve extra shipping charges to some countries. . [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Raphael's Witch !!! or The Oracle of the Future

      William Charlton Wright, 1831. Book. Illus. by R. Cruiikshank. Very Good. Full-Leather. 1st Edition. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. A fine calf leather binding with 5 raised bands together with full slipcase with the book laid on a pocket for the facsimle illustrations together with the two parts remaining of the original coloured illustrations (see scans) . This is a first edition, printed in 1831, with illustrations and two large coloured folding plates by Cruikshank and the author (part facsimile), together with two leaves of music composed especially for the work by J. Blewitt and with tables, graphs and diagrams in - text. The preface states that 'this book is adapted to lay about in drawing rooms - to be read in gardens and groves, to ornament the boudoir - for amusement in evening parties, as an innocent substitute for cards - to be consulted in every mind and temper' (Raphael's Witch 1831). The author Robert Cross Smith (1795 - 1832) wrote under the pseudonym Raphael and was considered to be an alchemist and astrologer with a broad interest in the occult. He was influenced by Francis Barrett's 'The Magnus' and was said to have been a member of an occult circle that included both Barrett and Sir Edward Lytton. The title mentions 'ten coloured designs' - these comprise of the vignette to title page and the panels of the fold out plates. The folding plates show magical scenes and are entitled 'The Mystical Wheel of Pythagoras' and 'The Tablet of Questions and The Cabalistic Tablet of the Stars'. This is a beautifully presented book, whose internal condition belies its age. Re-binding has been carried out sympathetically and to a high professional standard, with a protective sleeve (see photograph).

Tafeln, Halbleinenwandbände der Zeit mit farbigen Rückenschildern feines Expl. Seltene letzte Ausgabe! Neben Heister gehörte August Gottlieb Richter (1742-1812) zu den Begründern der wissenschaftlichen Chirurgie in Deutschland. Als medizin. Schriftsteller war er unerreicht. Richter vermittelt seinen zum Teil noch im Feldscherergeist befangenen Kollegen die großen ausländischen Fortschritte der Chirurgie. Er schrieb ein reines Deutsch, ohne allen gelehrten Putz. Noch ein Menschenalter später schrieb Dieffenbach in seinem Vorwort zur Operativen Chirurgie: "So ein Buch möchte ich, das auch das Meinige wäre." Richters Wundarzneykunst ist ein Markstein deutscher Chirurgie. Besonders die grundlegende neue Hernienlehre (5.Bd.), die erste umfassende Darstellung der Neurochirurgie im deutschen Sprachraum, sowie die wichtigen Beiträge zur Augenheilkunde und Urologie sind besonders erwähnenswert. (siehe G. Fischer: Chirurgie vor hundert Jahren, pp.171-209).August Gottlieb Richter is considered the father of scientific surgery in Germany. He travelled wiedly and was well acquainted with the best French and English surgery of the day. His writing have the mark of perfection. The present seven volumes comprise a scholary history of surgery.

        Caricature: The Pleasures of the Rail-Road. Caught in the Rail-way!

      London: S. Gans, Southampton Street, 1831. Good + condition. Original hand color copper plate engraving, a caricature of the mayhem supposedly introduced by the world's first intercity railway, depicting the runaway 'Northumbrian' locomotive (the Liverpool and Manchester Railway locomotive based on the "Rocket") scattering terrified men, women and children in its path. A fallen man lies underneath the locomotive, and ladies in billowing gowns race to escape. Signed "H H" at the lower right.The Liverpool and Manchester line made an important connection for Manchester and its textile works with the sea port of Liverpool. This was the beginning of the great age of the railway, which introduced vast societal change to Britain, stimulating the economy by reducing transport times, lowering costs, and consuming raw materials. But the railway also intruded into the rural regions of Britain, upsetting a previously quiet pace of life.The British Museum holds some 250 caricatures by Henry Heath (active 1822-1842) on a wide range of contemporary topics, from politics, class differences, food, married life, and sports ('Heath's Oddities', a series of caricatures of sportsmen). Henry and his brother William were competitors of George Cruikshank; they pioneered the foundation for Victorian caricature which in time became the political cartoon and ultimately the comic strip.14 x 9 3/4". The number of the print at top left, No. 1, flipped to mirror image. Not recorded at the British Museum, which records holding the second in this series, entitled "The pleasures of the rail-road, showing the inconvenience of a blow-up". BM 1994,0515.17. With a mat burn line just outside the impression mark, some light sunning and mat burning at edges.

Game consists of 133 medallions and was an early form of Royal ephemera, published around the coronation of William 4th. In 12 folding sections, the game is hand-coloured and linen backed. There are a few spots to game and names in ink to reverse. 48.8 x 48.8cm in slip-case. Case has hand-coloured label, some wear. Like most copies, rules are not present.

        Illustrations and descriptions of the plants which compose the natural order camellieae, and of the varieties of Camellia Japonica, cultivated in the gardens of Great Britain.

      London John and Arthur Arch 1831 - Volume 1 (all published) folio (38 x 28 cm.).With 40 hand-coloured plates (36 engraved, 4 lithographed) by S. Watts and Weddell after Chandler, heightened in gum arabic; fine contemporary green half morocco gilt, covers with L-shaped corners with multiple gilt fillets, flat spine with gilt geometric designs and floral tooling, marbled sides and edges, plates clean and fresh, a most attractive example. One of finest works on camellias, here in its most desirable state. Described by Wilfred Blunt as "handsome and rare", with magnificent plates after the drawings of Alfred Chandler "beautifully coloured with opaque pigments" (Dunthorne), the work was available in three issues: uncoloured, coloured, or -as in this example- coloured and highly finished with gum arabic. Chandler's drawings were mostly based on examples of camellia grown by at the nursery at Vauxhall run by his father. The Camellia was first introduced into Europe by Lord Petre in 1739, and the work includes Japanese, Chinese and English-bred varieties. Beautiful evergreen shrubs, sometimes growing into small trees, they are found in eastern and southern Asia, from the Himalayas east to Japan and Indonesia. The best known species, albeit not necessarily known consciously, is the Camellia sinensis, the tea plant, of major commercial importance because tea is made from its leaves. While the finest teas are produced by C. sinensis thanks to millennia of selective breeding of this species, many other camellias can be used to produce a similar beverage. For example, in some parts of Japan, tea made from C. sasanqua leaves is popular. Intended to be a two-volume work, the second volume was never published.
