A fine set.Daniel Defoe(1660-1731) was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer, and spy, most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe. Defoe is noted for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, as he helped to popularize the form in Britain with others such as Samuel Richardson, and is among the founders of the English novel. He was a prolific and versatile writer, producing more than five hundred books, pamphlets, and journals on various topics, including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology, and the supernatural. He was also a pioneer of economic journalism. The first edition of Robinson Crusoe was published on 25 April 1719. The novel credited the work's protagonist Robinson Crusoe as its author, leading many readers to believe he was a real person and the book a travelogue of true incidents. It was published under the full title The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver'd by Pyrates.

        Gran Logia Nacion Mexicana, y pira de los Yorkinos.

      [colophon: Mexico: Oficina del C. Alejandro Valdes Folio (31.5 cm; 12.25"). 4 pp.. ca. 1831] Satirical pamphlet concerning the loss of political influence of the Yorkino (Yorquino) branch of Masonry in Mexico and the ascendancy of the Scottish branch — and concomitantly of Gen. Santa Anna. The text is in double-column format below a large copper engraving that is renowned as => one of the earliest politico-satirical "cartoons" created and printed in Mexico. Unsigned, this is entitled "El Torrente Flegueton" and features skeletons, bats, a demon, harpies, etc. The text supposedly describes the elaborate final funeral pyre that the Yorkinos constructed in the shape of a Solomonic temple with statues, each element of which is explained poetically via either an "oda," romancillo, "decima, or "anacreontica." On the scarcity of early Mexican politico-satirical engravings and woodcuts, Helia Bonilla writes, "Interesa también señalar que, entre la muy escasa producción de estampas satíricas que circularon durante la época, hay al menos otras tres que salieron de la imprenta de Valdés" and => this is one of those three. As to the date of printing, the Sutro library assigns [1832?], the British Library [1834?], and several Mexican scholars opt for ca. 1828. 1834 is impossible as Valdes died in 1832. We suspect the date to be 1830 to 1832. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCPB, and the OPACs of the Mexican National Library and CONDUMEX locate one copy in the U.S., one in Britain, and one in Spain. Folded as issued, apparently never sewn or bound in a volume; old repairs to fore- and upper inner margins not touching text or image. Eight pin-type wormholes in margins and and text, costing nine letters but certainly not impairing ability to read and understand; some age-toning, soiling, and scattered bug-spotting. Overall, a rather good copy of an uncommon and important item.

Erste Ausgabe. - "Experimental proof of Bell-Magendie law of the spinal nerve roots" (G/M). - "Müller was responsible for a remarkable advance in neurophysiology: confirmation of the Bell-Magendie law by means of a simple experiment performed on the frog. At first he experimented on rabbits, but the work was difficult and yielded ambiguous results. Consequently he continued his investigation on frogs, the use of which in the laboratory had almost entirely ceased. In the frog the spinal cord was far easier to remove, the relationships between the nerve roots were much more apparent, and the results unambiguous and always reproducible. Cutting through the posterior roots leading to a hind leg, he found that the limb became insensible but was not paralyzed. When he cut through the anterior roots, however, he observed that the limb was paralyzed but not rendered insensible. The simplicity, conclusiveness, and memorableness of the experiment - which has been repeated countless times in physiology courses - made a marked impression on Müller's contemporaries. To be sure, Müller, who was driven by ambition throughout his life, did not hesitate to make his experiment widely known. In that very year (1831) he reproduced it in Paris for Cuvier and Humboldt and, in Heidelberg, for Tiedemann. He also had his friend Anders Retzius perform the experiment in Stockholm" (DSB). - Vereinzelt etwas stockfleckig.

        Double Investigation of the Southern Polar Ocean and the Voyage Around the World 1819-1821 - Reprint

      1831 - St Petersburg As a prominent cartographer, Bellingshausen was appointed to command the Russian circumnavigation of the globe in 1819-1821, intended to explore the Southern Ocean and to find land in the proximity of the South Pole. The expedition was prepared by Mikhail Lazarev, who was made Bellingshausen's second-in-command and the captain of the sloop Mirny, while Bellingshausen himself commanded the sloop Vostok. During this expedition Bellingshausen and Lazarev became the first explorers to see the land of Antarctica on 28 January 1820 (New Style). They managed to twice circumnavigate the continent and never lost each other from view. Thus they disproved Captain Cook's assertion that it was impossible to find land in the southern ice-fields. The expedition discovered and named Peter I Island, Zavodovski, Leskov and Visokoi Islands, the Antarctic Peninsula and Alexander Island (Alexander Coast), and made other discoveries in the tropical waters of the Pacific.

        Troisième mémoire sur l'emploi de l'iode dans les maladies scrofuleuses. [Précédé de] Mémoire sur l'emploi de l'opium joint à l'iode, dans la scrofule cutané par Th. Le masson

      1831 - [2]-49 et XI-219 pages Paris, J.B. Baillière, 1831, in-8, [2]-49 et XI-219 pages, cartonnage moderne à la bradel, Deux ouvrages rares défendant l'usage thérapeutique de l'iode dans le traitement de la scrofule, contesté à l'époque. A la fin de son troisième (et dernier) mémoire sur le sujet, le célèbre Dr Lugol délivre un "précis sur l'art de formuler les préparations iodurées" et donne la composition de la solution qui porte son nom: c'est l’efficacité de cette "solution de Lugol" que son ancien élève à l'hôpital Saint-Louis, Lemasson, éprouve dans son mémoire. Avec une certaine amertume, ce dernier accuse par ailleurs son maître, "poussé par des considérations dont [il] ne [peut] soupçonner le motif", de lui avoir refusé l'accès à ses propres travaux, fruit de deux ans d’observations dans le département des scrofuleux. A la solution de base, Lemasson joignit de l'opium, dans un premier temps afin de calmer les douleurs intolérables qui résultaient de l'application de la pommade; tout en reconnaissant les vertus du mélange de Lugol, Lemasson vante l'efficacité de son traitement ioduro-opiacé: "pour les cas de scrofule ulcéreuse, l'union de l'opium à l'iode donne aux préparations iodurées une vertu qu'elles n'avaient pas, soit qu'il agisse par ses propriétés toniques, soit qu'il agisse par ses propriétés, depuis longtemps connues, de diminuer les secrétions, soit enfin que le mariage de ces deux médicaments héroïques exalte encore leurs qualités intrinsèques". Lugol (1788-1851) fit de d'importantes observations dans la classification et le traitement de la tuberculose. Il recommandait également l'emploi de l'iode dans le traitement du goitre et de la syphilis. Heirs of Hippocrates, n° 839. Waller n° 6081.

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 a further 20 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 a second volume, that is more often than not lacking, as here.

        Observations upon the prophecies of Daniel.

      London: James Nisbet, &T. Stevenson, Cambridge 8vo (23.5 cm; 9"). [1] f., xii, 250 pp.. 1831 Third edition. In addition to being a physicist, mathematician, and natural philosopher, Sir Isaac Newton was something of a Biblical scholar as well, as shown by the present exegesis on apocalyptic texts. His analysis generally reads as being practical in nature — as the New Catholic Encyclopedia (X, 428) says, "Newton's writings on apocalyptical prophecies were not mystical or millenarian in any sense, but more exercises in deciphering cryptograms." They comport with our sense of him as someone who believed in the scientific method! "A new edition, with the citations translated, and notes by P. Borthwick . . . of Downing College, Cambridge. Publisher's quarter green cloth with paper-covered boards. Rebacked in sympathetic cloth and new paper label (antique style) applied. Boards show age-stains and wear but are solid. Old library pressure-stamp on title-page. In an open back slipcase of green library cloth; spine of box with author, title, and call number in gilt. A nice copy, sound for reading.

        Faust im Gewande der Zeit. Ein Schattenspiel mit Licht.

      im Literarischen Museum [d.i. Ph. Reclam], Leipzig 1831 - 160 S. Schlichter Halblederband d.Zt. Etwas berieben, Ecken etwas bestoßen. Erste Ausgabe (Thode 1831.6; Goedeke X,381;39; Henning, Faust-Bibliographie III,273; Reclam-Gesamtverzeichnis 1831/ 05.) – Papierbedingt gebräunt, Außenbll. in den Ecken leimschattig, zeitgenöss. Initialen „P-P“ a.d. Titel und „P“ an S.5. Eine der seltensten Schriften des politischen Abenteurers und Schriftstellers. HARRO HARRING (Ibenshof bei Husum 1798 – 1870 Jersey) „führte vielleicht von allen Schriftstellern des Jahrhunderts das unstäteste Wanderleben.“ (Goedeke). Die Faust-Satire entstand 1829 noch in Polen, wo er am Kampf der Polen gegen die russischen Besatzer teilnahm. In späteren Jahren bezeichnete er sie als „Fragment“ und benannte sie in „Mantelkragen des verlornen Faust“ um, was keine praktische Auswirkung hatte, da die vorliegende die einzige Ausgabe geblieben ist. Dass nach GOETHEs Fassung des Faust-Stoffes jeder Text, der sich auf diesen bezieht, ohne angemessene gedankliche Tiefe und literarische Ausführung verfehlt ist, fühlte HARRING wohl und drückte dies verklausuliert in einer Anmerkung zu dem Druck der „Bruchstücke aus dem ‚verlornen Faust’“ (ein umfangreicher Monolog Fausts) aus: „. – Obiger ‚Faust’ war als ein Ganzes ausgeführt, ging aber größtentheils im Manuscripte verloren und außer jenem Fragment fanden sich nur noch diese Blätter, welche wir zur Rechtfertigung des Verfassers mittheilen, der selbst gar wohl fühlt, daß er nur Bruchstücke eines Faust liefern kann.“. HARRINGs Faust behält als origineller, authentischer Beitrag zur politischen Literatur der aufgewühlten Zeit seinen Wert. Die nachträgliche Relativierung ist ein Beleg für sein stetes Leiden an der wohl erkannten Diskrepanz zwischen Anspruch und Ausführung. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      np 1831 - Sole edition. 16 pp. 16mo. "You have imparted new lustre to the commercial character of the United States" Very rare. A collection of correspondence relating to the rescue of the Russian covette Kensington by the American schooner Superior en route to the Pacific to hunt seals. Captain Conger who led the rescue and broke orders reports the incident thus:"I fell in with the Russian corvette, Kensington, dismasted, with ten feet of water in her hold, having on board, as passengers, Baron Krudener, the Russian minister, . I was induced to return by making this contract with Baron Krudener: - that you should receive any sum you demanded, to the amount of ten thousand dollars, as a compensation ."Far from holding Krudener to the bargain, Burrows - owner of the Superior - refused to accept compensation, "knowing that you will repay the same, if chance should place any of my suffering countrymen within your reach." The correspondence includes letters from Baron Krudener, Silas Enoch Burrows, Secretary of State Martin van Buren - who conveyed the details of the incident to the President, and Samuel Hicks.This pamphlet was almost certainly compiled by Burrows, as there is one passage written in the first person regarding the reply to one of his letter. Burrows produced a full length account of this incident in 1865, this preceeds it by some measure. That it is in the original gilt-edged wrappers suggests that this pamphlet was produced in a small edition for presentation only as a tribute to the amicable resolution of the incident.

        A Dictionary of the English Language. Reprinted by E. H. Barker. from a copy communicated by the author, and containing many manuscript corrections and additions: with an appendix by the editor.

      London: Black, Young, and Young, 1831-32 - Two volumes, quarto (267 × 208 mm). Contemporary full calf recently rebacked to style, two-line gilt border on sides, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Armorial bookplates of Edward Weyman Wadeson (1792-1884), a notary public in Doctors' Commons and a vice-president of the Foundling Hospital. A few scrapes to bindings, vertical crease to title page of volume II. An attractive copy. Printed in triple-columns. First UK edition of the dictionary that almost at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States. Webster wanted to stress the political separation from Britain by the cultivation of a distinct American language, and so, under the influence of his friend Benjamin Franklin, turned his attention to "a reformed mode of spelling" and gave many printed American words their distinctive appearance. "[T]he book marked a definite advance in modern lexicography, as it included many non-literary terms and paid great attention to the language actually spoken. Moreover, his definitions of the meanings of words were accurate and concise (Sir James Murray, editor of the Oxford English Dictionary, called him 'a born definer of words') and have for the greater part stood the test of time superbly well. In fact, Webster succeeded in breaking the fetters imposed upon American English by Dr Johnson, to the ultimate benefit of the living languages of both countries" (PMM). The dictionary's English editor was the classical scholar Edmund Henry Barker (1788-1839), who carried on a lengthy correspondence with Webster. PMM 291.

Some light dampstains. Overall in good condition. 80 pp. *** FIRST EDITION. A second edition of @Algumas palavras appeared in 1832, also printed by G. Schulze, with an appendix (pp. 81-98) on events that occurred after the publication of this first edition in 1831. The work gives important information on Anglo-Portuguese relations at a crucial period in Brazilian history. The first section is an examination of the Anglo-Portuguese Treaty of 1810, English negotiations regarding Brazilian independence, Sir Charles Stuart's special mission to Lisbon and Rio de Janeiro to negotiate a settlement for the separation of Rio de Janeiro, etc. The second section discusses the political and economic relations between England, Portugal, Brazil and Europe, with particular emphasis on revolutions, treaties and trade (especially the wine trade).Araujo Carneiro (1776-1849), a Portuguese physician, fled to London when the French invaded. There he contributed to every issue of the enormously influential @Correio Brasiliense, 1808-1822, and corresponded regularly with D. João. In 1812 he shocked society by eloping with the Marchioness de Alorna's daughter, who died soon thereafter. Although he was appointed chargé d'affaires to Switzerland in 1818, the Portuguese ministers refused to grant him a travel allowance, and he never reached his post. Soon afterwards he fell out of favor with D. João, and eventually became a follower of D. Miguel, who named him Visconde de Condeixa.*** Innocêncio X, 2: citing only the second edition.

From the Gladstone library at Fasque, near Aberdeen, evidenced by the Fasque bookplate on the fpd (William Gladstone, when Prime Minister, often stayed at Fasque). The 1831 edition is notable for three reasons: the frontispiece is the first depiction of the monster; the book contains Mary Shelley's introduction, written at the request of the publishers to explain the origin and gestation of her story; and after her revisions to the text this is now regarded as the standard edition. Very clean pages, tissue guard over engraved title page. A very nice, stand-alone copy of Shelley's famous novel.

Ayacucho: Imprenta del Colejio de Educandas, 1831. vi, 6, 134 [234] pp. [Bound with] [Santa Cruz y Calaumana, Andres]. Codigo Penal Santa-Cruz para el Regimen de la Republica Boliviana.

Some soiling and shelfwear, chipping to edges of lettering pieces. Moderate toning to text, internally clean. Ex-library. Location label to spine, small inkstamps and annotations in pencil to title pages. Solid copies of two rare imprints. * First editions. Santa Cruz was the President of Peru in 1827, then divided into the states of North and South-Peru, President of Bolivia from 1829 to 1839 and the Supreme Protector of the short-lived Peru-Bolivian Confederation (1836-1839), which he established. He was such a Francophile that he was known as "El Afrancesado." While president of Bolivia he reformed the legal system along French lines and introduced a series of codes based on the Code Napoleon. These codes, including the 1831 Bolivian criminal code, are among the earliest codes produced in post-colonial Latin America. The 1875 code is a reprinting of a heavily revised version of Santa Cruz's code adopted in 1862. OCLC locates 5 copies of the 1831 code, 1 in North America (at LA County Law Library), 1 copy of the 1873 code (at the National Library of Chile). See Clagett, A Guide to the Law and Legal Literature of Peru 76-77. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Compendious History of the Cotton-Manufacture; with a disproval of the claim of Sir Richard Arkwright to the invention of its ingenious machinery.

      FIRST EDITION of the earliest history of the cotton industry. Although it is heavily biased in favour of the claims of Kaye and Highs as the true inventors of Arkwright?s cotton machinery, the book is nevertheless a key source of information on both Arkwright and other contemporary figures, on the machinery itself, and on the social changes wrought by the huge growth in the industry brought about by mechanisation.The lithographed plates, which are early examples of lithography, show the old methods of weaving, and the engraved plates are a fine series of detailed views of the new machinery.Loosely inserted is a 2-page (and conjugate blank) printed circular produced by Marriott & Rogers, dated at Liverpool, 1st January 1831, detailing imports of cotton through Liverpool, Glasgow and London between 1819 and 1830, with a detailed analysis of the figures.Large 4to, 2 leaves, pp. (3)-70, (3), and 12 plates (3 lithographed and 9 engraved). Original blue-grey boards (new matching paper spine and printed label), uncut. Boards a little soiled, some minor foxing, but a very good copy.
