An uncommon, nice 3 volume title.Preface, pp. [iii]-iv, dated '20th April, 1831', stating an intention 'to show what a person of ordinarily genteel habits has really to expect in emigrating to Canada' (p. [iii]). This also notes: 'The author had proposed to offer the result of his observations in a regularly didactic form, but upon reflection, a theoretic biography seemed better calculated to ensure the effect desired. We disguise medicine, and he but mixes truth with fiction' (pp. [iii]-iv).Edward Ellice label on Vol. 1 Volumes 2 & 3 have a very elaborate bookplate of The Rt. Hon.

Appendix, in volume 3, gives a descriptive listing of 'the different townships in eight of the eleven districts into which the province is divided'.Critic Elizabeth Waterston has observed that Bogle Corbet was the "first major work to define Canadianism by reference to an American alternative." It is also the story of an anti-hero, and Galt's frequent use of non-military male anti-heroes, especially in Bogle Corbet . Bogle Corbet is a fairly close version of Guelph's founding.Of interesting note, Bogle Corbet precedes the first of Thomas Chandler Haliburton's Sam Slick books by five years.Wolff 2389: emigration to Canada.

Crease line on the first few pages. Hole in blank page at the end of the book. Overall condition is good.This is the second novel, 1831 edition, by Julia Catherine Beckwith Hart [ 1796 - 1867 ] Tonnewonte; or, the adopted son of America: a tale containing scenes from real life, by an American (2v. in 1, Watertown, N.Y., 1824-25; 2v. in 1, Albany, N.Y., 1825; 1v., Exeter, N.H., 1831). Born in Canada, her first book St Ursula's Convent was written when she was just 17 years old, and published 10 years later in 1824 by Hugh C. Thomson - the first Canadian published book, by a Canadian born author. The first work of fiction written by a native-born Canadian and the first to be published in what is now Canada. She published it anonymously, with a dedication to the Countess of Dalhousie.This, her second novel, TONNEWONTE or The Adopted Son of America, was published in 2 volumes in 1824 and 1825 in New York . This is the first 1 volume edition of 1831. "Hart's second novel, Tonnewonte, was published in New York state (1824-1825), probably after the Harts had moved to Rochester. Set in the United States and France, it tells the story of Theodore, a Frenchman who eventually must choose between an aristocratic life with his natural relatives in his native country and a democratic life as a hardworking farmer with adopted relatives on the American frontier in Tonnewonte, New York. Theodore, after fighting against Napoleon at Waterloo, finally decides to return to the greater freedom and happiness of America.In the introduction to Tonnewonte , Hart takes up the question of the alleged superiority of Europe to America and its effects on the literary productions of "all Americans, Canadians, Nova-Scotians, New Brunswickers, Yankees, etc." She hoped that her novel would help induce "some Americans of superior talents, to devote their abilities to the general service and amusement of their countrymen." In fact, in this second novel Hart's own talents seem superior to those displayed in St. Ursula's Convent. Despite the absence of a psychologically intriguing alter ego figure like the nun Julia, Tonnewonte 's plot is tighter; its American setting more deftly described; and its chief Connecticut Yankee characters, the Marvins--this time named after Beckwith relatives--more subtly presented." quoted from Dictionary of Literary Biography Both titles are EXTREMELY RARE and seldom appear at auction.The title here offered is, therefore, the first procurable Canadian novel. Designated a "Person of National Historical Significance" in 1951.

        On the production of currents and sparks of electricity from magnetism" in American Journal of Science and Arts , Volume 22, 1832, pp. 403-408

      FIRST EDITION OF THE DISCOVERY OF SELF-INDUCTION as well as the first edition of Joseph Henry's publication of his discovery of induction -- an 1831 discovery that actually preceded that of Faraday's of the same year, however Faraday was able to beat Henry to publication. "Joseph Henry was the greatest experimental physicist in America in the mid-19th century" and his "discovery of self-induction in 1832 was the first appearance of a major [American] discovery in electricity since Benjamin Franklin" (A to Z of Physicists and Notable Scientists; Jenkins, Spark Museum of Electrical Invention). As stated, Henry discovered two forms of electrical induction, both electromagnetic induction, both electromagnetic induction (the ability of a coil to generate a current when it moves across a magnetic field) and self-induction (the ability of a coil to create the very magnetic field that then induces the voltage), but while he discovered induction shortly prior to Faraday, Henry was saddled with a particularly heavy teaching load and Faraday beat him to publication. In the case of self-induction, however, Henry published his results prior to those of Faraday. Beginning with an electromagnet and wound keeper "identical in principle with Faraday's," Henry first confirmed both his earlier observations [of 1831] and those of Faraday, then went a step further (Ross, Men of Science, 125). Just before the end of his paper, Henry "reported and correctly interpreted an effect of self-induction: the production of sparks when a wire, thirty or forty feet long, and even more pronounced when coiled into a helix, is disconnected from a battery" (ibid). Wrote Henry: "I may however mention one fact which I have not seen noticed in any work... when a small battery is moderately excited... if a wire thirty or forty feet long be used instead of the short wire, though no spark will be perceptible when the connection is made, yet when it is broken by drawing one end of the wire from its cup of mercury, a vivid spark is produced. I can account for these phenomena only by supposing the long wire to become charged with electricity, which by its reaction on itself projects a spark when the connection is broken" (Henry). "Henry's observation of self-induction anticipated that of Faraday by more than two years" (Ross, 125). Scholarship has erred on this point, making it important to state that Dibner 65 mistakenly credits Faraday with the discovery of self-induction in 1834. Faraday reported self-induction in December of 1834, Henry in July of 1832 (Exp Res 1048; Jenkins). Without Henry's discoveries, "the Electric Revolution was impossible because with a proper understanding of induction, the creation of an electrical generator, then known as a dynamo, would have been impossible and the world would have depended on batteries for its electricity" (Davis, Fleet Fire). Note that this volume also includes the seminal discovery of Chloroform by Samuel Guthrie. CONDITION & DETAILS: Complete volume. 8vo. (8.5 x 5.5 inches, 213 x 138mm). 3 unrelated plates. Recently and very handsomely rebound in half-calf over marbled paper boards; four gilt-ruled raised bands at the spine; gilt-lettered black morocco spine label.

        A bouquet of roses.

      Active -1847 1831 - Watercolour over chalk on vellum (25.5 x 34cm, framed size 45.5 x 54.5cm), signed in the bottom right corner, framed and glazed. A lovely example of 19th century flower painting in fine condition. Adele Poissant was a female miniature artist, who worked in Paris and sent several miniatures and drawings to the Salon from 1831-47 (Schidlof). This painting is an unusual example of her working in full size and on the natural rather than human form. The composition is reminiscent of the naturalistic but highly decorative botanical watercolours of Redouté, also working in Paris slightly earlier, with the exception of Poissant's addition of ornamental water droplets across several of the pale pink roses and parts of the bouquet's foliage. The watercolour is signed 'Adele Poissant' on the lower right corner. Leo R. Schidlof, The Miniature in Europe in the 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th Centuries, Volume 2 (1964), page 646.

      2 volumes. xxi+472 pages with three maps (two folding and one double page), figures, and 13 plates; iv+452 pages with 10 plates (some folding), tables and appendices. Octavo (9 1/2" x 5 1/2") Bound in contemporary half leather with marbled boards and gilt lettering to spine. (Ferguson 1418; Hill I, p. 19; Howes B309; Lada-Mocarski 95; Sabin 4347). Second edition published after quarto edition of the same year.Frederick William Beechey (17 February 1796 ?" 29 November 1856) was an English naval officer and geographer. He was the son of Sir William Beechey RA, and was born in London. 1806 he entered the Royal Navy, and saw active service during the wars with France and America. In 1818 he served under Lieutenant (afterwards Sir) John Franklin in David Buchan's Arctic expedition, of which at a later period he published a narrative. In the following year he accompanied Lieutenant W. E. Parry in HMS Hecla. In 1821 he took part in the survey of the Mediterranean coast of Africa under the direction of Captain, afterwards Admiral, William Henry Smyth. He and his brother Henry William Beechey, made an overland survey of this coast and published a full account of their work in 1828 under the title of Proceedings of the Expedition to Explore the Northern Coast of Africa from Tripoly Eastward in 1821-1822. In 1825, Beechey was appointed to command the HMS Blossom. His task was to explore the Bering Strait in concert with Franklin and Parry operating from the east. In the summer of 1826, he passed the strait and a barge from his ship reached 71°23'31" N., and 156°21'30" W. near Point Barrow which he named, a point only 146 miles west of that reached by Franklin's expedition from the Mackenzie river. The whole voyage lasted more than three years and in the course of it Beechey discovered several islands in the Pacific, and an excellent harbor near Cape Prince of Wales. In July 1826, he named the three islands in the Bering Strait. Two were the Diomede Islands that Vitus Bering had named in 1728: "Ratmanoff Island" (Big Diomede) and "Krusenstern Island" (Little Diomede). Beechey called the uninhabited third islet "Fairway Rock", which is still its contemporary name. One of his crew, Petty Officer John Bechervaise, gave a detailed account of the voyage in his Thirty Six Years if a Seafaring Life by an Old Quartermaster, published privately in 1839. In 1831 there appeared his Narrative of a Voyage to the Pacific and Beering's Strait to Co-operate with the Polar Expeditions, 1825-1828. In 1835, and the following year Captain Beechey was employed on the coast survey of South America, and from 1837 to 1847, carried on the same work along the Irish coasts. He was appointed in 1850 to preside over the Marine Department of the Board of Trade. In 1854, he was made rear-admiral, and in the following year was elected president of the Royal Geographical Society. Beechey Island, where Sir John Franklin wintered, is named after him.Condition:Name neatly excised from head corner of titles, small inconspicuous stamp to last pages.

        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]: Printed for Warner & West, 1831. - [3]-38pp. plus folding woodcut frontispiece. Original plain blue wrappers, bound into blue half calf and cloth, gilt spine titles, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Modern bookplate on rear pastedown. Significant foxing to text, untrimmed. Very good. 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 August 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 is almost always lacking. It 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. "Contemporary account of Nat Turner's insurrection" - Howes. A great rarity of African-Americana, almost never seen complete.

        NARRATIVE OF A VOYAGE TO THE PACIFIC AND BEERING'S STRAIT, TO CO-OPERATE WITH THE POLAR EXPEDITIONS: Performed in His Majesty's Ship Blossom under the Command of Captain F.W. Beechey, R.N.in the Years 1825, 26, 27, 28

      Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley, 1831. Early Edition. Cloth. Fair. The 1st Admiralty Edition in quarto; Two volumes, Vol I, fep, folding map, title page, vii-xxi, [1, directions to the binder], 392pp; illustrated, 14 plates, 3 charts, (2 folding). MISSING 5 PLATES AND PAGES v-vi, 329-336), Up to page viii, detached as is pages 387 to 392. Vol II (2), errata slip, vi-vii, directions to binder pages 393-742 (2 publishers advertisements), illustrated 7 plates. (MISSING 1 plate). Half bound marbled boards. Beechey?'s expedition on board the H.M.S. Blossom formed part of a double-pronged assault on the western approaches to the Arctic. Sent by way of Bering?'s Strait to explore the northern coast eastward, Beechey was to eventually link up with Franklin?'s second expedition, working westward from the Mackenzie River. The two parties came within several hundred miles of each other, one of Beechey?'s vessels managing to penetrate as far as Cape Barrow, while Franklin turned back at Return Reef at about 149 degrees west. The narrative contains scientific data, descriptions of Eskimo life and culture, and much of importance relating to Alaska (including the Aleutian, Pribilov and other islands), the Tuamotu Archipelago, the Society Islands, and Tahiti, Hawaii, and the coast of California. There are also valuable accounts of Monterey and San Francisco prior to the American conquest, as well as a lengthy account of the mutiny of the Bounty, as related by its sole survivor, John Adams. "Beechey's expedition went to the Bering Strait "As a relief expedition to await the separate expeditions of Captains Franklin and Parry." Beechey heard at Kamchatka that Parry had turned back, but he waited at Kotzebue Sound for Franklin through the Summers of 1827-8. "Near Point Barrow, Alaska, Beechey and Franklin had arrived within fifty leagues of each other, when the latter was compelled by the weather to turn back." Also described are visits to Pitcairn Island, Tahiti, Alaska, Hawaii, Macao, Okinawa, and the coast of California. On Pitcairn, Beechey met the last survivor of the Bounty mutiny, John Adams. "He also gives an important account of Monterey and San Francisco before the American conquest." Beechey rose to Rear-Admiral, and between 1836-47 undertook a survey of the coast of Ireland. "From 1850 until his death he was superintendent of the marine department of the Board of Trade; he was consulted on all Arctic issues, including the search for Sir John Franklin by the Arctic council In 1855 he was elected president of the Royal Geographical Society, an office which he still held at his death, on 29 November 1856 Beechey was an outstanding professional hydrographer who served in the last years of heroic endeavour, and lived to publish the results of his scientific observations on tides" (ODNB) Arctic Bibliography 1227; Field 105; Hill 93; Howes B-309; Lada-Mocarski 95; Sabin 4347; Wickersham 6541.

        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.
