Lear, Edward ("E Lear del at lith"); John Gould [Ornithology]
1832. Printed by C. Hullmandel. 20 x 13 1/2 inches (29 x 22 1/2 inches in mat and frame). Just a few short closed tears to the outermost extremities. There is a 6" crack in the frame. From John Gould's "The Birds of Europe," published in London between 1832 and 1837. Edward Lear, famous for his nonsense verse and for the popularization of the limerick, was already earning his living by drawing at the age of fifteen. During his time working for the British Museum, Lear made drawings of birds for the well known ornithologist John Gould. Over the course of his lifetime, Gould produced over 40 volumes, with over 3,000 color plates. He is most recognized for his folios, of which this is an example. A lovely image of the short-toed eagle, a bird whose population has declined or gone extinct in some areas of Europe.

SKINNER, Captain Thomas.
London: Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley,, 1832. 2 volumes, octavo (204 x 131 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled boards, slightly clumsily rebacked to style, decorative tooling to the covers in blind. Lithographic frontispieces printed on India paper and mounted. Baronet Hope of Craighall's book plate to both volumes. Rubbing to boards, original leather at spine edge somewhat ragged, light foxing, text block a little browned. A very good copy. First edition. Skinner "went with his regiment to India shortly before 1826, and was stationed at Hardwar, in the North-Western Provinces, near the foot of the Himalayas. He made expeditions into the little-known mountainous districts of the area, and described the results of his exploration in [this work]" (ODNB). The text includes the personal memories, reflections and observations of a man "struck with the air of romance in which everything seemed to be decked" (p. vi). Skinner "penetrated into the icy recesses of the Himalaya" and produced a text that is "a very amusing one; it is written in a matter-of-fact style without affectation or pedantry" (The Asiatic Journal, Vol IX, 1832, p. 59-66).

"Thomas Rowe Edmonds (1803-1896) was probably one of the most competent statisticians of the middle of the nineteenth century, with an extensive practical knowledge of conditions in London, where he worked for many years as an actuary. His Enquiry into the principles of Population... has perhaps the best description of the urban situation at the time. Population was increasing there at a slower rate than in the country. He ascribed this not only to the sickliness of town life, because in fact there was better medical attendance to be had there, '... and there are more comforts and foreign commodities, considered now as necessaries rather than as luxuries, procured with facility'. It is rather the 'greater efficacy of the preventive check' which distinguishes town life, at least where it has a chance to operate. Not in the very poor and crowded quarters, where privations are as great as ever, but in the new salubrious outer districts where wealth and respectability grow, there will prudence lead to a slower rate of increase" (Eversley). Among his suggestions were national … [Click Below for Full Description]

PRESIDENT JACKSON'S PROCLAMATION AGAINST THE NULLIFICATION ORDINANCE OF SOUTH CAROLINA DECEMBER 11, 1832 An excised pamphlet offering no information about printing,of publisher, place or date. This is an interesting anomalous printing of this important document. The few documents available, or in libraries, have the date of Jackson's decree against South Carolina's anti-federalism (foreshadowing secession) as December 10, 1832 though this piece cites December 11, 1832 An early printing of this vital speech by Jackson, declaring that no state had the authority to annul any federal law (here regarding federal tariffs), stating South Carolina "stood on the brink of insurrection and treason." At the time both sides postured towards a conflict. Following the president's forceful declaration the federal government did finally come to a compromise with South Carolina in 1833; forestalling the secession by 27 years 1 vol. 8vo. disbound, 20 pp. [Attributes: First Edition]

And he is the poet of contemporary society, keen to discern the false and the corrupt, courageous in denunciation yet with pity for the young and innocent... As a poet he mirrored brilliantly and without distortion an absorbingly interesting world" (Baugh, 1229). [Attributes: First Edition]

DARLING, Ralph
London: J. McGowan, 1832. Octavo, 48 pp.; a good tall copy, bookplate of Bernard Gore Brett, in neat modern quarter calf. Rare: 'in defence of his administration in New South Wales. In an appendix the addresses presented to Governor Darling on his leaving New South Wales by the Legislative Council, officials and colonists are printed' (Ferguson). This is one of only a handful of works published by Colonial Governors of New South Wales. In this book Darling makes a spirited defence of his administration. Although the author of many important reforms in New South Wales, his governorship finished under a cloud as the criticisms of several prominent officials and colonists began to have some traction in London. Darling himself had left Sydney in October 1831, and on his return was faced with the news that the complaints against him were being raised in Parliament, chiefly by Joseph Hume the radical politician and supporter of the Reform Bill; throughout his career Hume was ferocious in his attacks on government spending and the curtailment of the press, both of which would have made Darling's case of some interest to him.

DESPINE (Charles-Marie-Joseph)
Chambéry: 1832. DESPINE (Charles-Marie-Joseph)Essai sur le système de toiture le plus convenable aux constructions de Savoie. Chambéry, Chez Routin et Bottero, 1832. In-12, cartonnage rouge maroquiné, roulette dorée, dos lisse orné, tranches dorées (Reliure de l'époque). Edition originale de ce rare traité d'architecture concernant les toitures du duché de Savoie, offrant un riche panorama du savoir-faire local et de l'état des populations de ses provinces en 1832. « A la suite d'une communication, en 1830, du secrétaire de la Chambre royale d'agriculture et de commerce de Savoie sur « les vices des constructions rurales », [...] Despine écrivait deux ans plus tard un Essai sur le système de toiture le plus convenable aux constructions de la Savoie qui eut un grand retentissement. »Marie-Thérèse Hermann. Architecture et vie traditionnelle en Savoie. 1999. p.169. Regardé comme « un vrai présent national » par la Chambre royale d'agriculture et de commerce de Savoie, cet ouvrage reflète la volonté d'encourager la fabrication et l'utilisation de tuiles pour la construction des toitures du duché. En effet, les toits des localités étaient pour la plupart faits de chaume ou de bois ce qui les rendait extrêmement vulnérables face aux incendies. Charles-Marie-Joseph Despine (1792-1856), ingénieur et homme politique local, présente dans un premier temps un rapport détaillé sur les différents modes de toiture adoptés en Savoie (tuiles, ardoises, bois ou bardeaux et chaume). Il appuie ses études à l'aide d'un tableau comparatif donnant pour les huit provinces du duché (Tarentaise, Hau … [Click Below for Full Description]

Seconde édition, ornée de deux vignettes d'après Tony Johannot gravées par Leloir et Andrew imprimées sur papier bleu. Exemplaire de Charles Asselineau (1820-1874) (catalogue de sa bibliothèque romantique, 1875, n°180) portant son ex-libris gravé par Félix Bracquemond. Cet ouvrage romantique sur la guerre de Vendée est décrit pour ses deux vignettes dans le Catalogue iconographique de sa célèbre Bibliographie romantique (1872, p. 248).Il est probable que ce soit cet exemplaire qui ai servi à l'établissement de la description de l'ouvrage. Un assignat de cinq livres à en-tête de l'Armée catholique et royale de Vendée est contrecollé au contreplat du premier volume.

A very good copy in a choice period binding. 31 engraved diagrams, 15 of them folding.

Parker, 1835". Parker was an ally of John Edye's mentor Sir William Symonds, during the "bitter political debate on the merits of large sailing ships" designed by Symonds (ODNB). "Parker could hardly be impartial, having been largely responsible for ordering the majority of these ships while at the Admiralty under Lord Minto. His decision to fly his flag in Symonds's masterpiece, the Queen, indicated his preferences" (ibid.). Parker (1781-1866) had a long and distinguished career, summed-up by ODNB in the following glowing terms, "No officer of Parker's day made so deep an impr … [Click Below for Full Description]

SOANE, John -
London: Printed by James Moyes, Castle Street, Leicester Square. M.DCCC.XXXII. [1832]. Second Edition. 4to, xviii, [2] 'Description of plates, &c.', 27. [1] blank; 18 plates including an engraved frontispiece portrait, hand coloured aquatint plate, 12 lithographs and 3 engraved plans; also 3 wood engraved head and tail-pieces, some foxing and one plate more so; contemporary panelled calf lettered in gilt; armorial bookplate of John Henry Good. The second edition of the Description was published in an edition of 106 copies for private distribution and of the three editions during Soane's lifetime much the rarest. The Soane Museum was and is the articulation of that marriage of poetic mood, architecture and antiquity that was so central to Soane's vision, lay centrally to the shaping of his museum, and was influential in late Georgian England. The continued existence and integrity of the collection, as catalogued here in its earliest form, provides a readily accessible milestone in the evolution of museums and museum collections. Our copy was given by Soane to Joseph Henry Good (1775-1857) was an English architect who was clerk of works at the Tower of London, Royal Mint, Kensington Palace and the Royal Pavilion Brighton.
