        Album of Gouache Paintings on Pith - Canton 1831.

      1831.. Very unusual album of 18 delicate paintings on 16 individual leaves of pith papers presented in an elegant purpose made green cloth covered clam shell box, leather title label upper cover. Album measures 20 x 27.5cm. The album has a presentation inscription from G. H. Vachell to the Revd Leonard Jenyns, dated 'British Factory Canton, Dec 14th 1831'; and a manuscript label on the front cover: "Insects - from Specimens in the Cabinet of Revd G. H. Vachell at Macao (China) caught in the town and its vicinity. Lizards - From Living Specimens caught on the Islands near Macao (?). Paintings by Chinese artists. 1831" Boards very worn with loss at edges and corners. Rev. Vachell who compiled this album has tipped the pith paper into the album itself rather than employing the usual method of securing the paintings by the use of a ribbon border. The paintings have been professionally repaired where possible, most are chipped at edges, with either no loss to, or very minor loss of the painting however some show significant loss. The paintings in this album are as follows: 1. Interior view of a tea hong captioned 'Interior of a Merchant's Tea "Hong" (or Warehouse) in Canton 1831'. It also has has 8 inked numbers and a corresponding detailed legend in Vachell's hand on the opposite page, initialled G.H.V. It shows the typical activities inside the tea warehouses of Canton, incl. 1. a Western tea inspector; 2. the Chinese Hong merchants; 3. A Western 'writer' (clerk) writing down weights of the chests; 4. A Chinese merchant doing the same; 5. the coolies treading the tea; 6. the 'Chop boat' ready to convey the tea from the hong to the ship in the river; 7. the tea chests prepared for examination; 8. Servant putting the name of the hong merchants in Chinese characters on the tea boxes. 2. A boat captioned by Vachell "Pleasure boat used by the Emperor of China at Pekin." (with some loss to the top of the image). 3. A boat captioned by Vachell "Travelling Boat used by the Military Mandarins of Low ?. (with a tear and some minor loss to bottom right). 4. A butterfly, captioned by Vachell "Phalana Atlas" and "Macao". 5. A butterfly captioned by Vachell 'Caught in the flower gardens in Canton' 6. Two lizards 7. A lizard. 8. Two lizards. 9. A floral still life. 10. A butterfly. 11. A lizard. 12. A lizard. 13. A river view showing a fort (the Dutch 'folly fort?) and three boats. 14. A river view showing a bridge and surrounding buildings. 15. A boat captioned "Duck boat" (this with very significant loss of half of the image), 16. A boat captioned "The boat built by the Viceroy of Canton". Rev. George Harvey Vachell was born at Southport, Cambridgeshire, in 1799. He died at sea in 1839, en route to England from China with his family and was buried at Capetown. A graduate of Cambridge University, he entered holy orders and spent much of his short adult life in China where he was chaplain to the Honourable East India Company's establishment in Macau from 1828. After the Company lost its monopoly of the China Trade in 1834, he became chaplain to Lord Napier, sent from Britain to be the first Superintendent of the British China Trade; but before the year was out, he had the melancholy duty of conducting Napier's burial service at the still existing British Protestant Cemetery in Macau. Vachell is better known to history as a botanist and collector of plants, insects, beetles, and fishes, who sent many specimens to the leading English scientists of his day. They included Rev. Professor J.S. Henslow of Cambridge University, and the naturalist Rev. Leonard Jenyns for whom this annotated album of pith pictures was intended. He botanized extensively in the islands and neighbourhood of Macau at a time when rising tension between China and the West could sometimes make such excursions dangerous, and he must have had the kind of quiet and outgoing personality which made them possible. The entries in Emil Bretschneider's History of European Botanical Discoveries in China (1898) and William Jackson Hooker's The Botany of Captain Beechey's Voyage (1841) are testimony to his pioneering zeal and considerable knowledge of what was then a still little known field in that part of the world, whilst other entries show that his ever growing reputation was known and appreciated globally. It appears that before Charles Darwin was appointed botanist to the HMS Beagle Expedition in 1831-36, Vachell may have been offered the post but he declined. The foreign residents of Macau at this time, Vachell among them, were small in number but active in good works and the pursuit of knowledge. In 1829 he had been elected as honorary secretary to an intended museum on the East India Company's premises, but it seems this project never materialized. Clearly, Vachell's early death was a decided loss to science. .

        August Reinhardt (1831-1915). Sturmgepeitschte Landschaft. Aquarell auf Papier

      - August Reinhardt (1831 Leipzig-Dresden 1915). Sturmgepeitschte Landschaft. 1867 . Aquarell auf Papier. -- Beschreibung: -- Aquarell auf Papier. unten links signiert: "AReinhardt" und unten rechts datiert: "im April 1867". -- Größe/Size: -- 21,5 x 35,3 cm. -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand, farbfrisch erhalten. -- Weitere Beschreibung: -- Auch wenn August Reinhardt seine Ausbildung zum Maler in Leipzig bei den beiden nazarenisch geprägten Malern Gustav Jäger (1808-1871) und Bernhard Neher (1806-1886) und später in Weimar bei Friedrich Preller d.Ä. (1804-1875) absolvierte, orientiert sich das vorliegende Blatt eher an den Werken der späten Ludwig Richter-Schule. Malweise und Bildgestaltung lassen an Victor Paul Mohn oder Albert Venus denken. Dieser Kreis wird Reinhardt nicht fremd gewesen sein, hatte er doch während seines Rom-Aufenthaltes 1852 bis 1854 Kontakt zu Heinrich Franz-Dreber, dem Lieblingsschüler Richters. Von ihm wird Reinhardt auch die Lockerung des Strichs erlernt haben, denn Dreber hatte zu jener Zeit die scharfe Feder Richters bereits gegen den weichen, malerischen Kohlestift getauscht, was dann auch Arnold Böcklin stark beeinflussen sollte. In der farblichen Durcharbeitung unseres Aquarells setzt Reinhart gezielt auf das Verlaufen und Übereinanderschichten der Farben, um nuancierte Abstufungen zu erreichen. Dies ergibt ein variationsreiches Farbenspiel, das nahezu vollständig auf die konturgebende Linie verzichtet. Die dürren, windgepeitschten Äste sorgen hierbei für einen spannenden Kontrast. So gelingt Reinhardt eine intensive Wiedergabe des aufziehenden Gewitters. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

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

      Detmold, 22. VII. 1831. - 1 S. Folio. Auf grobem Konzeptpapier (Wasserzeichen: zweistrichige Antiquaversalien FWH). An seine spätere Braut Louise Christiane Clostermeier: "Hochgeehrteste Mademoiselle! Gesundheit! Ihnen und der - Frau Archivräthin, sobald Sie dieselbe nöthig, - ich hoffe nie - hätte. Verzeihen Sie dieses Conceptpapier. Ich treffe den Ulrich, von dem ich gern für meinen Gebrauch Papier kaufte, nicht zu Haus. Von Freiligrath Anliegendes zurück. Morgen und Uebermorgen hoffe ich mehr. Das anliegende Gedicht ist so gut, daß ich selbst meine Correctionen retour nehme. Es braucht nicht abgeschrieben zu werden, darum schick' ich es nur zur Nachricht. Ich will es besorgen. Morgen Abend lasse ich es holen. Hochachtungsvollst / gehorsamst / Grabbe. [.] Der Brief sieht aus wie ich." - Nachdem sich seine Verlobte Henriette Meyer von ihm abgewendet hatte, heiratete der seit 1831 zunehmend an der Alkoholkrankheit leidende Grabbe 1833 Louise Clostermeier, die ihn bereits einmal abgewiesen hatte. Die Ehe sollte nicht glücklich werden; kurz vor seinem Tod reichte Louise die Scheidung ein. Bei Freiligraths "Anliegendem" dürfte es sich um die Gedichte "Sonst und Jetzt", "Drei Lieder zur Feier des Soester Schützenfestes" sowie das "Johanniskuchen-Lied" gehandelt haben. - Provenienz: 1902 in der Sammlung des Diplomaten und Literaturforschers Eduard Grisebach (1845-1906), dessen Bibliothek nach seinem Tod über den Auktionshandel verstreut wurde.

        ADDRESS TO THE READER OF THE DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THE GALVESTON BAY & TEXAS LAND COMPANY, WHICH ARE CONTAINED IN THE APPENDIX

      New York, 1831. Dbd. Small chunk taken out of gutter of title-leaf (affecting "G" in "Galveston Bay"). Tanned and rather soiled. Else good. "When in the fall of 1830 the Galveston Bay Company was organized to colonize its Texas land grants on a large scale, the colonization of Texas thus far had been very largely carried on by Stephen F. Austin...the Galveston Bay Company is the first of such companies which actually sent colonists to Texas...The ADDRESS TO THE READER, giving an account of Texas and its opportunities for emigrants, is well done and is one of the earliest accounts of Texas in English. It refers, though a little disingenuously, to the prohibition against immigration in the law of April 6, 1830, and later refers to it as 'occasional and temporary,' but it does give the complete text in the appendix...Many years ago Mr. Winkler suggested to me that the law of April 6, 1830, appeared in English translation here for the first time..." - Streeter.

        AUTHENTIC AND IMPARTIAL NARRATIVE OF THE TRAGICAL SCENE WHICH WAS WITNESSED IN SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY (VIRGINIA) ON MONDAY THE 22nd OF AUGUST LAST, WHEN FIFTY-FIVE OF ITS INHABITANTS (MOSTLY WOMEN AND CHILDREN) WERE INHUMANLY MASSACRED BY THE BLACKS! COMMUNICATED BY THOSE WHO WERE EYEWITNESSES OF THE BLOODY SCENE

      [New York], 1831. Original plain blue wrappers, bound into modern blue half calf and cloth, gilt spine titles, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Modern bookplate on rear pastedown. Significant foxing to text. Very good. Untrimmed. This very rare pamphlet is the classic account of the famous Nat Turner slave rebellion which took place along the Virginia-North Carolina border in the summer of 1831. Turner led a massacre of whites after an eclipse of the sun convinced him that the time for slaves to shed their bondage had come. The pamphlet reports the gory details of the uprising, which began on Aug. 22 but which was quickly suppressed. The sensational text, however, hints darkly of further rebellions and reviews the sad history of slave uprisings in Santo Domingo, the nightmare of every southern planter. The folding woodcut frontispiece, almost always lacking, depicts in graphic detail the atrocities supposed to have been committed. Entitled "Horrid Massacre in Virginia," it shows, in overlapping scenes, a mother trying to shelter her children from an ax-wielding black, a plantation owner being stabbed to death, and another planter defending himself with a sword. Across the bottom mounted militia pursue the blacks into a thicket. A great rarity of African-Americana, almost never seen complete.

        The science of book-keeping, exemplified in Jones's English Systems of single and double entry and balancing books. Second edition

      London: Printed by T. C. Hansard; published by the author,, 1831. Quarto (317 x 243 mm), pp. vii, (1), 111, (1); [140 pp. of lithographed examples, (2), 123-259, (1)]. Later brown coarse grain cloth, spine lettered gilt, paper label lettered gilt on front cover. A little light dust-soiling; occasional light spotting; a very good copy. Second edition of the new version of the English System. "The unfavourable reception of his work silenced Jones for nearly quarter of a century, until he set to work to devise a revised version of the system. Published as the Science of Bookkeeping in 1831, a second edition followed in the same year, a third in 1832, and a fourth in 1834 after his death. Developed and modified by his sons, editions of the work continued to appear until the 1880s. The revised system that Jones presented withdrew many of the features of the original system and considerably modulated his attack on the principles of double-entry. Jones admitted that the 'additional experience' of thirty-five years had convinced him that there were 'strong objections in practice' against the form of the journal he had put forward. He also divested the ledger of the multiple columns. Two additional books were part of the new system ...." Bywater and Yamey, p. 198.

        Andrew Jackson Ships Papers

      Washington, D.C., 1831-1833. 11" x 15". "Party Printed Document Signed ""Andrew Jackson"" as President and ""Edw Livingston"" as Secretary of State, 1 page, 11"" x 15"". Washington, no date, but 1831-1833. On vellum. Ships Papers signed in blank, not filled in. Blind embossed Seal of the United States, 2.25 inch diameter with serrated edge, affixed with red wax at lower left. Uniformly lightly soiled, usual folds. Naval vignettes at top scalloped edge. Large 5"" long signature of Jackson. Fine condition.This document was signed in blank in Washington, D.C. by President Jackson and Secretary of State Livingston, to be sent to a United States port to be filled out, signed, and issued from there by the Collector of the Port. The Collector, or an assistant, would fill in the name of the ship and all the required information. Edward Livingston served as Jackson's Secretary of State from May 24, 1831 to May 29, 1833. On the day of Livingston?s resignation as Secretary of State, President Jackson appointed him U.S. Minister to France. It is probable that when Ships Papers signed in blank by Jackson and Livingston's successor Louis McLane reached a Collector, he put aside the Jackson/Livingston Ships Papers and replaced them with the newly signed documents, although the previously signed ones could also have been legally used.In part, ""By the President of the United States of America Suffer the ___ master or commander of the burthen of ___ tons of thereabouts mounted with ___ guns navigated with ___ men To Pass with her Company Passengers Goods and Merchandize without any hindrance seisure or molestation the said ___ appearing by good testimony to belong to one or more of the Citizens of the United States and to him or them only ..."""

        Fluß mit kleinem Wasserfall.

      - Bleistift, auf zwei herausgelösten und zusammengeklebten Skizzenbuchblättern, recht unten bezeichnet und datiert „Corneto ai 13 di Maggio (1831)" 11,2:33,2 cm. Verso rechts: Zwei Skizzen eines Jägers, verso links: Kleiner Landschaftsausschnitt. Bleistift. Gering fleckig. Provenienz: Sammlung Hugo von Rittgen, nicht bei Lugt; Hessische Privatsammlung. Literatur: Ausst. Katalog: Zeichnungen Darmstädter Romantiker. Aus der Sammlung Hugo v. Rittgen. Hamm/Darmstadt/Gießen 1984, Nr. 65, Abb. S. 73. Lucas unternahm zwei Reisen nach Italien. Die erste konnte er 1829 antreten. In Rom und Umgebung sich meist aufhaltend, kehrte er erst fünf Jahre später nach Darmstadt zurück. Eine zweite Reise unternahm er 1850. Im Mittelpunkt beider Aufenthalte stand das Naturstudium, die Landschaft war zentrales Thema seines Schaffens. Frische und dynamische Zeichnung Lucas’, die die auf seiner Italienreise gewonnenen Erkenntnisse auf dem Gebiet der wirklichkeitsgetreuen Naturauffassung deutlich aufzeigen. August Lucas zeichnete bereits im Alter von 14 Jahren nach graphischen Vorlagen, aber auch nach der Natur. 1819-1824 war er Schüler der Darmstädter Museumszeichenschule bei dem Galeriedirektor F.H. Müller (1784-1835). Im Odenwald betrieb er darüber hinaus gemeinsam mit J.H. Schilbach (1798-1851) Landschaftsstudien. 1825 führte ihn eine Studienreise mit D. Fohr (1801-1862) ins Berner Oberland. Im gleichen Jahr ging er zum Weiterstudium nach München und wurde an der Kunstakademie von P. von Cornelius (1783-1867) unterrichtet. Das Studium brach er jedoch 1826 aufgrund mangelnden Interesses an der Historienmalerei ab und er kehrte nach Darmstadt zurück. In den beiden darauffolgenden Jahren betrieb er erneut Studien in und um Darmstadt. Mit finanzieller Unterstützung der großherzoglichen Erbprinzessin Mathilde reiste er 1829 über Mailand nach Italien. In Rom wurde er gemeinsam mit dem Darmstädter Maler P.W. App (1803-1855) in den Künstlerkreis der Ponte-Molle-Gesellschaft aufgenommen. Von Rom aus unternahm er Ausflüge in die Albaner und Sabiner Berge, 1832 eine Reise über Neapel nach Sorrent und Capri. In Rom trat er auch in Kontakt zu J.A. Koch (1768-1839). Erst 1834 kehrte Lucas nach Deutschland in seine Geburtsstadt zurück. Eine erneute Romreise ist für das Jahr 1850 zu verzeichnen. In Darmstadt war er als freischaffender Künstler tätig, verdiente sich zudem später auch als Privatlehrer seinen Lebensunterhalt. 1861 war er einer der Mitbegründer der Darmstädter Künstlergesellschaft.

        Ferruginous Thrush

      1831. AUDUBON, John James.Ferruginous Thrush. Turdus Rufus. Linn. Male, 1. Female, 2. Black-jack Oak, Quercus Nigra. Black Snake.No place: R. Havell, [1831].The dramatic hand-colored Ferruginous Thrush plate from the double elephant folio first edition of Audubon?'s Birds of America, ?"the most splendid book ever produced in relation to America, and certainly one of the finest ornithological works ever printed,?" depicting a black snake invading the thrushes' nest, while they desperately attempt to repel the snake's attack. One of no more than 175 copies printed."The Birds of America exemplifies man's ability to accomplish an almost impossible task through sacrifice and persistence. Audubon set out to paint and publish an example of every bird on the North American continent… He was the first artist-naturalist to illustrate American birds, life-size, in natural poses; the backgrounds, or habitats, are more natural looking than those of his predecessors" (Handbook of Audubon Prints, 17-18). "The most splendid book ever produced in relation to America, and certainly one of the finest ornithological works ever printed… He insisted on drawing from life, never from stuffed specimens, and was much in advance of his time in portraying the birds (in many cases unrecorded species) in their natural surroundings… The courage and faith of the Audubon family is breathtaking… This immense undertaking, this unparalleled achievement, was not the production of a great and long-established publishing house, nor was it backed by a wealthy institution. It was the work of a man of relentless energy, with no private fortune… It is a story without equal in the whole history of publishing" (Great Books and Book Collectors, 210-13). The Ferruginous Thrush is plate 116 of the 435 engravings Audubon produced.Light wear to left margin where this sheet was originally bound in with others. Print clean and fine. A dramatic, bold and desirable original Audubon print.

      London: Printed for B Fellowes, Ludgate Street. 1831. - Second Edition, being the First Corrected Edition; the earlier printing featured nine errors which, given the content, were crucial.

Later bookplate of historian Wilhem Voss of Hamburg-Altona to pastedown, some faint dampstaining to margin of first and final leaves, some sunning to covers. Very good indeed.

        Lecons sur les prisons pre'sente'es en forme de cours au public de Berlin en l'anne'e 1827. Ouvrage traduit de l'allemand par H. Lagarmitte avocat, accompagne' de plusieurs notes du traducteur et de M. Mittermaier, professeur a l'Universite' de Heidelberg Tome premier (-second)

      Chez F. G. Levrault, Paris 1831 - 2 voll. in 8, pp. XXXIV + 440; (4) + 502 con 4 tavv. in lit. piu' volte rip. f.t. Alcune cc. si presentano brunite. Br. ed. con lievi danni. Importante e raro saggio che anticipa di due anni quello di Beaumont et Tocqueville.ÂLa traduzione francese parte dal presupposto che la Francia sia ancora arretrata per cio' che riguarda il miglioramento delle condizioni dei detenuti durante la loro redenzione. Julius parla della nascita della 'societa' disciplinare', laddove la disciplina non si identifica con una specifica istituzione o apparato, ma rappresenta un tipo di potere che puo' essere esercitato attraverso vari strumenti (penitenziari, case di correzione, istituti di educazione, ospedali). In una societa' in cui gli elementi principali non sono piu' la comunita' e la vita pubblica, ma lo Stato da una parte e il singolo individuo dall'altra, quest'ultimo esercita di giorno in giorno un'influenza sempre crescente, costruendo e organizzando quegli edifici destinati a sorvegliare la moltitudine degli uomini. 'Il lavoro, alternandosi al pasto accompagna il detenuto fini alla preghiera della sera [.] e' cosi' che si succedono le settimane i mesi gli anni; cosi' il prigioniero che al suo arrivo era un uomo incostante [.] diviene a poco a poco [.] cosi' familiarizzato col lavoro [.] che potra' esserte esposto con maggior confidenza alle tentazioni cui il recupero della liberta' lo sottoporra''. Per Julius si trattava di un processo storico gia' compiuto, mentre Bentham nel suo Panopticon lo aveva descritto come un programma tecnico. Inoltre Julius, parlando del principio panoptico, diceva che vi era in esso ben piu' di una ingegnosita' architettonica: era un avvenimento nella storia dello spirito umano. L?antichita' era stata una civilta' di spettacolo. L?eta' moderna pone il problema inverso: procurare ad un piccolo numero o persino ad uno solo la vista istantanea di una grande moltitudine. Cfr. Foucault, Sorvegliare e punire, pp. 262 e 236.Du systeme penitentiaire aux Etats-Unis et de son application en France. ITA

Havell, [1831].The dramatic hand-colored Ferruginous Thrush plate from the double elephant folio first edition of Audubon’s Birds of America, "the most splendid book ever produced in relation to America, and certainly one of the finest ornithological works ever printed," depicting a black snake invading the thrushes' nest, while they desperately attempt to repel the snake's attack. One of no more than 175 copies printed."The Birds of America exemplifies man's ability to accomplish an almost impossible task through sacrifice and persistence. Audubon set out to paint and publish an example of every bird on the North American continent He was the first artist-naturalist to illustrate American birds, life-size, in natural poses; the backgrounds, or habitats, are more natural looking than those of his predecessors" (Handbook of Audubon Prints, 17-18). "The most splendid book ever produced in relation to America, and certainly one of the finest ornithological works ever printed He insisted on drawing from life, never from stuffed specimens, and was much in advance of his time in portraying the birds (in many cases unrecorded species) in their natural surroundings The courage and faith of the Audubon family is breathtaking This immense undertaking, this unparalleled achievement, was not the production of a great and long-established publishing house, nor was it backed by a wealthy institution. It was the work of a man of relentless energy, with no private fortune It is a story without equal in the whole history of publishing" (Great Books and Book Collectors, 210-13). The Ferruginous Thrush is plate 116 of the 435 engravings Audubon produced.Light wear to left margin where this sheet was originally bound in with others. Print clean and fine.

        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.

        Important ALS from the Flogging Parson

      Parramatta: 29 April, 1831. Two-page ALS in Marsden's hand,on watermarked paper, 325 x 200 mm., original red wax seal, old folds; stamp for the Parramatta post office, very good. A letter from the aging and indefatigable Marsden to the pastoralists' agent, George Ranken agreeing to terms, presumably for the leasing of a property.In his tenure as Chaplain to the Colony and incumbent of St John's Parramatta, Marsden had become a wealthy man and a considerable landowner. He was, that is, a controversial figure in New South Wales: most stinging were the charges levelled at him by Governor Macquarie and William Wentworth to which Marsden had responded in his An Answer to Certain Calumnies in the Late Governor Macquarie's Pamphlet, and the Third Edition of Mr. Wentworth's Account of Australasia (London, 1826).This letter is written after Marsden's sixth and penultimate visit to New Zealand from March to May 1830. He had visited for the first time with his daughter Mary and at some personal cost 'played a vital part in restoring peace between the rival armies in the bloody Girls' War. A no less significant move was to set up a farm at Waimate North, to render the settlers less dependent on uncertain and expensive supplies from New South Wales and to set an example of peaceful, constructive industry. He threw himself into the work of teaching the small groups of anxious young inquirers who visited him in the evenings, and preaching in Maori to the crowds who gathered round him wherever he went.' (Dictionary of New Zealand Biography). Marsden had, with the backing of the Church Missionary Society, established the Church in New Zealand, and was responsible for transforming the Maori economy and making way for the annexation of New Zealand by the British.In the wake of this visit, Marsden appears anxious for Kinghorne, (Alexander Kinghorne, the Civil Engineer of the Colony) to visit New Zealand as soon as possible and to organise the establishment of a mill, to further ensure the growth of a stable society and a self-sustaining economy. The letter underlines the difficulties of distance and terrain-his beloved son Charles (who was largely to dissipate his father's bequest) is to travel to Bathurst as soon as the flooded South Creek Bridge will allow. The bridge, first built in 1813 by convict labour, was near Windsor on the Hawkesbury.Marsden had a gentler reputation in New Zealand, for whilst stern and pious he had shown great energy in the establishment of the first school and opposing trade in arms.Letters by Marsden are important and rare on the market and this is a very good, late example.G Ranken Esq.BathurstParramatta 29th April 1831Dear Sir,I received your note and will agree to the terms Mr. R[anken] finalises viz. £50 per annum Stirling-my son Charles will be up as soon as the rain will allow him. We have very heavy rain-the floods have carried away several of the bridges amongst them the South Creek Bridge-I will write [...] to Mr Kinghorne about going to New Zealand. He must go as soon as he conveniently can-I must leave the matter to him what kind of a mill to build there a single motion I think would answer but he will be a better judge than I shall.I remain,d[ea]r SirYours very truly,Samuel Marsden.

        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.
