        The social system: a treatise on the principle of exchange.

      Edinburgh: William Tait 1831 - 8vo., xvi + 374pp., including the half-title, occasional almost invisible blindstamps of a German Co-operative library, but all otherwise unmarked and in fine state of preservation, now in a neat but modern binding of half-cloth over marbled boards, spine gilt lettered. A very good copy. First edition. A notable work by the socialist/economist John Gray (1799-1883) who, during the 1820s, might have been described as an Owenite socialist, his Lecture on human happiness> (1825) powerfully illustrating his communitarian and socialist views, and it was the Lecture> which secured him a measure of contemporary notoriety. The 1831 Social System> was, according to N.W. Thompson in New Palgrave> (II, p.562), Gray's 'most interesting work.' 'Here', Thompson writes, 'his explanation of the impoverishment of labour is similar to that of the earlier book. Exploitation was deemed to occur in the sphere of exchange, producing poverty, distress, underconsumption and thence arrested economic development. Gray's solution, however, represented a significant move away from his earlier communitarianism in the direction of a centrally controlled, technocratically run economy, more Saint-Simonian than Owenite in character. As in the Lecture,> the competitive market economy was t be abolished but in The Social System> its pricing, allocative, distributive and equilibrating functions were to be performed by a central authority denominated by Gray the National Chamber of Commerce. Thus 'the Social System recognises as useful, but one controlling and directing power, but one judge of what is prudent and proper to bring into the market, either as respects kind or quantity - the Chamber of Commerce - who, having the means of ascertaining, at all times, the actual stock of any kinds of goods in hand would always be able to say at once where production should proceed more rapidly, where at its usual pace and where also it should be retarded.' Further the Chamber would employ 'agents' to organize the 'cultivation of the land and the management of all those trades and manufactures which had been brought together by a voluntary association of landowners, capitalists and traders'. It would also be responsible for ensuring that demand was commensurate with supply, for making, as Gray phrased it, 'Production the uniform and never failing cause of demand'.' Gray dedicates his Social System> 'To those who can distinguish truth and justice from received opinion and established custom; and who are willing to assist in the establishment of such principles as are best calculated to advance the character and improve the condition of the whole human race'.

The complaint letter to the King touches on such subjects as: education of the people of the province, impeded by the diversion of the Revenues of the Jesuits originally destined for that purpose; withholdng of grants of land for schools; rejection of the legislature of certain education bills; Parliament's power over provincial trade; the towns, parishes, townships, counties have insufficient legal power to manage their local concerns; inefficient and expensive administration of justice; etc. The King's answers may have been unsatisfactory to many, and many of these complaints led to the Rebellion of 1837.

        Derrotero de la navegacion á las Islas Filipinas. Seville, José M. Geofrin, 1862. 4to. With 2 small woodcuts and several letterpress tables in the text. Contemporary green half sheepskin.

      Bibl. Mar. Espanola 1831; Palau 146856; Vindel 834; WorldCat (4 copies); not in Robertson, Bibl. of the Philippine Islands. First and only edition of a rare and important Spanish pilot guide giving detailed sailing instructions for a voyage from Cádiz (Spain) to the Philippines. It opens with an introductory chapter on winds, with two tables listing the hurricanes of the two hemispheres. The main text describes the route from Spain to the Cape of Good Hope, Amsterdam Island and Manila, giving the coordinates of all important islands and straits as well as descriptions of the relevant monsoons. Besides the Philippines it describes the Moluccas, Java, Lombok, Makassar, Dampier Strait, etc. It concludes with a table indicating the heights of several mountains. The author was first pilot of the Carrera de Indias and collected the material for the present volume on numerous voyages to the Philippines. He wrote his guide to fill a gap, since Spanish navigators still used extracts from Horsburgh's outdated Observations on the navigation of the eastern seas , first published in 1797. Some spotting, first flyleaf damaged, but the binding still sound with the corners and spine slightly rubbed.

      Zus. 41 S., 8. Veuillot gilt als der führende Verteidiger der ultramontanen Bewegung innerhalb der kath. Kirche Frankreichs im 19. Jahrhundert. Er entstammte einem armen Elternhaus und war Autodidakt. Im Jahre 1831 nahm er seine journalistische Tätigkeit auf. Von 1832 bis 1836 gab er in Périgueux die Zeitung Mémorial de la Dordogne und von 1836 bis 1838 in Paris die Charte de 1830 heraus. Während eines Aufenthalts in Rom im Jahre 1838, wo er eine Audienz bei Papst Gregor XVI. hatte, faßte er den Entschluß, ein aktives Leben nach dem kath. Glauben zu leben. Im Jahre 1843 übernahm er die Leitung der Zeitung L'Univers, die er bis zu seinem Tode innehatte. Es handelte sich anfangs um eine unbedeutende Zeitung, doch wurde sie bald durch seine Verteidigung des Papsttums und der kath. Kirche zu einer Autorität von internationalem Rang. Mit allem Nachdruck verteidigte Veuillot auch die weltliche Macht des Papsttums. Er bekämpfte entschieden den Gallikanismus innerhalb des französischen Katholizismus sowie den Liberalismus. Er stritt vehement für einen größeren Einfluß der Kirche auf das französische Erziehungswesen. Die Heftigkeit seines Stils und seiner Anklagen gegen die Regierenden führten zu seiner Verhaftung im Jahre 1844. Politisch wechselte Veuillot öfters die Fronten. Zunächst zog er die Revolution von 1848 der sog. Juli-Monarchie vor. Doch bald änderte er seine Meinung und unterstützte den Staatsstreich Louis Napoleons. Wegen dessen antikirchlicher Italienpolitik wandte er sich allerdings von diesem bald ab. Von 1860 bis 1867 konnte L'Univers wegen der kontinuierlichen Ablehnung der napoleonischen Österreich-Politik überhaupt nicht erscheinen Veuillot ließ sich dennoch nicht entmutigen, sondern setzte in dieser Zeit seine literarische Tätigkeit durch Veröffentlichung einer Reihe von Büchern und Streitschriften fort. Versuche bestimmter Kreise, die Religion mit modernen Zeitströmungen zu versöhnen, lehnte er entschieden an. In der Frage der Dogmatisierung der päpstlichen Unfehlbarkeit neigte er zu extremen Ansichten, die ihm nicht nur die Opposition der Freidenker, sondern auch moderater Katholiken, z.B. J.-R.-F. Dupanloup, H.-L.Ch. Maret, Ch.F.-R. de Montalembert, eintrug. Während des ersten vatikanischen Konzils genoß er die Unterstützung Papst Pius IX., so daß L'Univers fast zu einem offiziellen Organ des Vatikans wurde. Während der Belagerung von Paris im Jahre 1870 entschloß sich Veuillot, in der Stadt zu bleiben. Allgemein wurde er wegen seiner Aufrichtigkeit geachtet. Er hatte besonderen Einfluß auf die französische Geistlichkeit seiner Zeit. Nach seiner Pensionierung ging die Leitung von L'Univers auf seinen Bruder Eugène über, der eine eher gemäßigte Linie im Sinne Papst Leos XIII. verfolgte. Nach seinem Tode begründete seine Schwester Élise die Zeitschrift La vérité française, welche die intransingente Linie von Louis Veuillot fortsetzte (Biographisch-bibliographisches Kirchenlexikon XII, 1310ff.). - Veuillots Bedeutung drückt wohl auch die von 1924-1940 in 40 Bänden erschienene Gesamtausgabe aus, innerhalb der seine Korrespondenz alleine 12 Bände umfasst. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Beiliegend 3 eigenh. Briefe m. U. seines Bruders Eugène (1862-84 6 S.) sowie 3 eigenh. Briefe m. U. seiner Schwester Élise (1859-63 8 S.). -

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      5 S., 4. Der französische Forschungsreisende Louis Maurice Adolphe Linant de Bellefonds trat 1831 als leitender Ingenieur in die Bauverwaltung Ägyptens ein, erhielt dort 1837 den Titel Bey und wurde 1862 Generaldirektor der Bauverwaltung und 1869 Bauminister. Obwohl weniger bekannt als Ferdinand de Lesseps, hatte Linant einen maßgeblichen Anteil an der Planung und am Bau des Suezkanals. Der mittlerweile nicht mehr im diplomatischen Dienst tätige Lesseps erhielt am 30. November 1854 von dem neuen Vizekönig Said Pascha, einem alten Freund, die erste Konzession zum Bau eines noch nicht genauer definierten Kanals durch den Isthmus mittels einer noch zu gründenden, internationalen Gesellschaft. In dieser Konzession wird Linant als Ingenieur des Vizekönigs bei der Gesellschaft [...] bezeichnet. In den folgenden Monaten erarbeitete Linant mit seinem Mitarbeiter Eugène Mougel (1808-1890), einem französischen Wasserbauingenieur, eine ausführlichere Planung des Sueskanals. Lesseps legte diese Planung mit seinem Bericht vom 30. April 1855 dem Vizekönig vor, der sie mit Bescheid vom 19. Mai 1855 zum Inhalt seiner Anordnung bezüglich des weiteren Vorgehens zum Bau des Sueskanals erklärte. In diesem Bescheid wurde festgelegt, dass Linant und Mougel den Verlauf des Kanals im Gelände festlegen, nivellieren und kartieren sollten, Sondierungen vornehmen und Bodenproben nehmen sowie die wesentlichen Lohn- und Materialkosten ermitteln und eine erste Einschätzung der Zahl der benötigten Arbeitskräfte durchführen sollten. Die daraus resultierenden Planungen sollten veröffentlicht und von einer internationalen Kommission beraten werden danach sollte die endgültige Trasse entschieden werden. Linant war sich jedoch bewusst, dass eine Tätigkeit unmittelbar für die Gesellschaft nicht mit seiner Position als leitender Ministerialbeamter zu vereinbaren sei, und vermied es somit, eine Stellung unmittelbar beim Bau des Sueskanals anzunehmen. Er setzte vielmehr seine Karriere fort, an deren Ende er ägyptischer Bauminister wurde (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger des auf Französisch abgefassten Briefes ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878).

        Théorie des ressemblances, ou essai philosophique sur les moyens de déterminer les dispositions physiques et morales des animaux, d'après les analogies de formes, de robes et de couleurs.

      - Paris, Treutel et Würtz, 1831; Fournier, 1844. Two volumes in two. Large 4to (24.0 x 31.3 cm; 26.6 x 35.1 cm). Volume I (1831): Half title, title page, 133 pp. 21 chromolithographed plates, finished by hand [1-20 numbered in the accompanying text, one not numbered]; Volume 3 (1844): xxiv, 207 pp., three hand-coloured plates. Similar, later blind quarter paper over original printed boards.l A peculiar work, being one of the first to make a deeper study of resemblances in natural history. Several observations made by Da Gama actually indicate true cases of mimicry, or true synapomorphies, but others are entirely coincidental similarities (e.g. the colours present in a bird, and in a flower). Apparently, Da Gama had a keen interest in entomology and ornithology, as most plates contain insects and, especially, birds. According to the title, the first volume has 20 plates, but actually there are 21. Inscribed by the author on the half title verso (dedication to "le Docteur Pugès"). A second volume appeared in 1836, and a fourth in 1858. These are not present in this set. Fore edges uncut. Old, ornithological library stamp on half title of volume 1, and front free endpaper recto of volume 3. Board rather rubbed, especially at the edges, and a bit soiled and worn. Some age-toning to a few plates ofwhich a few more heavy, otherwise clean. In all, good copies of this very rare work. Nissen ZBI, 1472. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus.

      London: Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley,, 1831. Revised, corrected, and illustrated with a new introduction, by the author. Octavo (157 x 98 mm). Contemporary green straight-grain morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt in compartments, elaborate frame blocked in blind to covers within double ruled gilt frame, turn-ins and edges gilt, green coated endpapers. Engraved frontispiece and title page by Theodor von Holst. Contemporary ownership inscription to second free binder's blank. A little judicious repair to spine ends, hinges repaired, skilful paper restoration to rear free endpaper and p. v. Slight fading to rear board, minor rubbing to tips, light browning to plates, occasional marginal foxing; an excellent copy. Third and first illustrated edition. The third edition has Shelley's final definitive text and was the first truly popular edition of the novel. In it Mary Shelley incorporated most of the changes introduced by William Godwin into the 1823 second edition, as well as numerous other revisions, including an entirely new chapter, and the famous "Introduction" in which she elaborates the tale of the novel's genesis at the nocturnal storytelling session with Shelley, Byron and Polidori at the Villa Diodati. Mary lived for twenty more years, but the 1831 edition is her final text revision. The frontispiece is the first visual depiction of Frankenstein and the Creature. The novel was issued in Bentley's Standard Novels Series, with the final third of the text in the volume printing the first part of The Ghost-Seer, which is completed in the second volume and is more often than not missing.

        Le Dessin d'Après Nature et sans Maitre, suivant la Méthode du Professeur le Breton, consistant a faire Dessiner d'Après Nature, dès la Première Leçon, par Mme Jerry de Mancy, Née Adèle le Breton, Peintre et Professeur.

      Paris: for the author, 1831. Hardcover. Very Good. Large folio [46 x 29 cm]. (2) ff, iv pp, (5)-63 pp, 59-67 pp, 69-107 pp, (1), plus 32 [i.e. 33, with an '8 bis'] numbered lithographed plates signed Mme. Marchand after Mme. Jarry de Mancy. Quarter bound in contemporary morocco and tree calf over pasteboards, title gold stamped on spine, marbled end papers. Boards rubbed and with edge wear and loss of bottom corners. Moderate spotting throughout, damp staining in upper margin affecting edge of plates, plate 20 with repaired tear. Otherwise good overall.Extremely rare first edition (second issue, a year after the first) of this exposition of the drawing methods of Jean-François Le Breton, a respected drawing master in 19th century Paris. The present work is of special interest, having been wholly composed and lithographed by two women, one of whom was Le Breton's own daughter and pupil and a drawing instructor and painter in her own right.Le Breton (1761-1838) was a provincial artistic prodigy, sponsored by his hometown (Mayenne) to travel to Paris at the age of 20 to study under David and Vincent. His own studio enjoyed much success among students of both sexes. One anecdote relates how even during the Reign of Terror, Le Breton continued to give lessons to the aged Mme. Helvetius while she remained in prison under conditions of strict silence. "Yet the Le Breton method would never have seen the light of day [in print] if it had not been for the close presence of his pupil and daughter. Madame Adele Jarry de Mancy, who edited, under the direction of her father, two works." ("Jean-Francois Le Breton," Réunion des sociétés des beaux-arts des départements a la Sorbonne [1885], p. 435).The present work complements Mme. Jarry de Mancy's earlier Traité de perspective simplifiée linéaire (1828), but gives a fuller introduction to the art of drawing based on chapters covering movement, proportion, shadow, the portraiture of the head and face, etc. The 33 full-page lithographed plates depict diagrams of perspective (and indeed its perception in the human eye) as well as artistic models of faces, buildings, interiors, the use of bistre, ears, hands, and so on. The execution of the lithography, particularly the examples of bistre, is very skilled - but we have been unable to trace the identity of the lithographer, who signs herself only as 'Mme. Marchand'. All plates are also signed by Mme. Jarry de Mancy, delineavit. The societal constraints of the two artists is perhaps apparent in several of the plates: Plate 32, a full-length portrait of a nude soldier, could only be called anatomically correct from the waist up! Adele Jarry de Mancy (1794-1854) was a member of the Athenée des Arts de Paris, "occupant un rang distingué parmi les professeurs de Paris," according to a contemporary review of the present work. The Revue des Deux Mondes (1831, pp. 263-4) indeed gives a good summary of the present work and its utility, as well as noting its publication in 8 livraisons up to the year 1831, perhaps explaining the existence of issues dated both 1830 and 1831.OCLC shows one US copy of the 1830 edition, at the Getty; a further copy of the 1831 reprint is found at the National Gallery. The present work is rare even in European census.* OCLC 852258165; cf. also e.g. the Neues allgemeines Künstler-Lexicon, Vol 6.

Whaler of Port Jackson, New South Wales, on Nicholson's shoal, 25° S 179° W.; to which is added the substance of an address to the Right Honourable the elder brethren of the Trinity Board, respecting the examination of new-made masters in nautical calculations.

The Minerva, on a voyage from Port Jackson to Tonga and the Solomon Islands ran aground on Nicholson's Shoal, now known as the Minerva Reef,on 9 September 1829, owing to the use of an outdated chart. Bays, a survivor of the wreck, provides a detailed account of the event and his subsequent stay in the Tongan Group, giving an insight into the food and habits of the passing sailors and island inhabitants. On leaving Tonga he visited the Bay of Islands, New Zealand, and witnessed on 6 March 1830 the battle at Kororarika, a fight between two neighbouring tribes in which nearly 100 men were killed or injured. An uncommon work, traced eight times at auction.
