        On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures

      Charles Knight, London 1832 - Small octavo, engraved title-page, original maroon cloth, neatly rebacked retaining original spine. Babbage's most successful work. Second edition of Charles Babbage's most successful work: there were four editions between 1832 and 1835 and the book was translated into at least six European languages. Babbage wrote this at the time he was working on his famous calculating machine, his first forerunner of the modern computer; his study was based on a conscientious and detailed survey of factories and workshops, both in England and on the continent. In his preface he acknowledges that the book is a direct consequence of his research and the many hours spent visiting places of manufacture in connection with the development of the calculating machine.Babbage's work reflects his broader preoccupations with scientific and industrial life, political economy, and philosophy, which is perhaps why is was so successful with the general reading public. He advocated the decimalization of currency, foresaw the role of tidal power as an energy source, and predicted the exhaustion of coal reserves, later commenting that if posterity failed to find a substitute for coal then it deserved to be frostbitten. This small volume was a turning point in economic writing and firmly established Babbage as a leading authority of the industrial movement.Various handwritten notes on inside page pertaining to the rarity of the book and a private lending label adhered to front laid-down endpaper.

        Domestic Manners of the Americans.

      London: For Whittaker, Treacher, & Co., 1832. - 2 volumes. 8vo., (7 ¼ x 4 ¾ inches). Fine lithographed frontispiece in each volume, 22 lithographed plates (very occasional spotting). Contemporary half tan calf, marbled boards, the spines in six compartments separated by five gilt-ruled raised bands, red and black morocco gilt lettering pieces in two, bound by "Carss, Glasgow" (J. Carss & Co., 19th century, Glasgow, Scotland) with their binder's ticket (boards of volume one detached, hinges of volume two cracked but holding, extremities worn). Provenance: With the contemporary bookplate of Charles-Francis Stuart (b. 1780), younger son of Alexander, 10th Lord Blantyre. From the distinguished library of Wolfgang A. Herz, his bookplate on front pastedowns, his sale, Christie's 12/9/2009, lot number 266. Herz. First edition. A satirical (and rather unflattering) look at 19th-century American society by the mother of Anthony Trollope, with 24 (in all) humorous illustrations. "Trollope's book became a best-seller in England and caused an instant sensation when it appeared in the United States. As with earlier travel volumes that took an uncharitable view of the American republic, critics spied an ulterior motive. The book had been released during the parliamentary debates over the Reform Bill, prompting speculation that it was intended as yet another Tory indictment of democratic institutions Despite hostile reviews, public reaction proved to be more amused than indignant, the sheer mean-spiritedness of Trollope's memoir making it difficult to take seriously as a valid indictment of American society. "With the release of 'Domestic Manners,' the British critique against the United States was largely complete. Subsequent visitors would provide additional anecdotal detail, but for the most part they would do little more than echo the criticisms leveled by Trollope and her predecessors. In the compendium of republican shortcomings compiled by British travelers, one issue stood out as the root cause of the behaviors they abhorred: an unceasing pursuit of the main chance. What had come to be known in the colloquial parlance of the new nation as a 'go-ahead' spirit, the foreign visitor regarded as an unrelenting quest for money and material goods. The leveling impulse of democracy had failed to produce great achievements in the arts, conservative Britons averred, for all beauty and elegance had been trampled underfoot in the headlong rush to pay homage to the great god of commerce. Too busy in their pursuit of profit either for personal reflection or meaningful social intercourse, Americans lacked wit, erudition, or any appreciation for aesthetics. Even the common courtesies that had become the hallmarks of European bourgeois respectability seemed to have no place among a people whose one consuming passion was their own self-interest. What was worse, in such a rampantly acquisitive society, dishonesty and selfishness had become virtues; shrewdness and 'smart dealing' (an American euphemism for deceptive business practices) passed for intellect. Always wanted more, they seemed to Britons a restless, humorless, unhappy people, a nation of bottom feeders devoted to the bottom line" (Sam Walter Haynes, "Unfinished revolution: The Early American Republic in a British World").

        An original manuscript page from James Fennimore Cooper's final work of fiction, the 1833 novel, The Headsman

      [Paris], c. 1832. 9.5" x 14.25". "Autograph Manuscript, 2 pages, 9.5"" x 14.25"", [Paris, c. 1832-1833], a pair of draft pages of his 1833 novel, The Headsman, or the Abbaye of Vigneron, published just before he returned to the United States following an eight year sojourn in Paris. Moderate toning and dampstains, minor losses at corners and marginal tears expertly repaired and in-filled, else very good condition. Cooper's 1933 novel about the political and emotional consequences of the hereditary position of the ""headsman"", or public executioner, takes place in the 18th century near the Swiss-Italian border. The present manuscript, which covers the content found from pages 159 to 166 of the 1833 Paris edition, contains a conversation between the future baroness Adelheid de Willading and the commoner Sigismund Steinbach, the son of the current headsman. Adelheid and Sigismund wish to defy ""the system"" and marry each other. This was the last of several works Cooper completed and published during his eight-year stay in France. While he was ostensibly employed as the United States Consul at Lyons, he resided mainly in Paris. Cooper derived inspiration for the novel's setting from several extended trips to Switzerland undertaken between 1828 and 1832. The Headsman would be his final work of fiction?"upon his return from Europe, he produced primary political and historical works including a two-volume travelogue, Sketches of Switzerland (1836). Constance Ayers Denne, in a 1974 article characterized Cooper's novel as a ""genuine 'literary work of art.'"" She explained that ""a close scrutiny of this novel reveals a coherent unity at the heart of its structural complexity."" While at its heart, The Headsman is a sociopolitical critique, Denne noted that ""in wholeness of conception reveals not only Cooper's artistry but also much about his method of creation."" (Denne, ""Cooper's Artistry in the Headsman,"" Nineteenth-Century Fiction 29:1, June 1974, p. 77) Some have theorized that the basis of The Headsman was loosely based on the 1831 novel Jésus-Christ en Flandres by Honoré de Balzac. While Balzac himself credited Cooper's writing as an inspiration of his own work, there is no evidence that Cooper was personally acquainted with the output of the French author?"though he was fluent enough in French to read him. (Thomas R. Palfrey, ""Cooper and Balzac: The Headsman,"" Modern Philology, 29, Feb. 1932, p. 335) Balzac had become acquainted with Cooper's work when the American author's works became popular in France in the 1820s. Works such as The Spy and Last of the Mohicans became wildly popular there after they were translated into French. Balzac summarized it best when he said, ""Cooper a été bien compris, il a été surtout apprécié par la France"" (""Cooper was understood, it was mostly enjoyed by France."") That popularity was only magnified during his residence in France beginning in 1826: ""He was lionized from within a few weeks after his first arrival"" in Paris, ""Later, he presided at meetings and banquets and was undoubtedly a figure ... among the cultured."" (E. Preston Dargan, ""Balzac and Cooper: Les Chouans,"" Modern Philology, 1915, pp. 1-3)A similar manuscript leaf from the same work fetched $6,250 at Christies in 2012."

        HURSTMONCEUX CASTLE Two watercolours, Front view and Ground plan.

      1832 - Watercolours on paper. Front view, 31.5 x 21 inches. Ground plan, 21.25 x 21 inches. Signed on front, R.W.Billings, 1832. Titled on back, Hurstmonceaux Castle and priced at œ44. Signed, R.W.Billings. Date on front, 1440 is date of Billings' reconstruction drawing. The front view watercolour is an historical reconstruction of the architects's expert analysis of the castle as originally completed in 1440. To it he has added some contemporary figures, including three workmen on the left, one of them up a ladder. Standing on the bridge over the moat are several red coated soldiers and some ladies, who appear to be sightseeing. The ground plan is an outline (the castle having no interior walls at this time) but contains some detail of the gatehouse and also marks the well. Robert William Billings (1813-1874) was an architect and author, born in London. His best known publication was The Baronial and Ecclesiastical Antiquities of Scotland (4 vols, 1845-52) but he also produced numerous other works on cathedral and church architecture and on castles. Much of his graphic work was reduced down for the use of engravers. He was elected an associate of the Institute of British Architects in 1835 and many of the drawings he prepared for publication are now in the RIBA Library. Herstmonceux Castle, East Sussex, was rebuilt by Sir Roger Fiennes, a royal official in the household of King Henry VI in 1440, as a sumptuous country residence, with a pseudo-defensive facade. The interior was dismantled in 1777 to build a manor house nearby and the castle remained a picturesque ruin until it was reconstructed as a residence, 1913-33. It provided a library and offices for the Royal Observatory, located on this site, 1957-88, and since 1994 Herstmonceux has been an International Study Centre for Queen's University, Ontario. This painting has been extracted from an album used by several generations of the family of Thomas Law Hodges at his properties of Hemsted and Jennings, near Maidstone. They had intermarried into many of the other local landed families and were in the habit of visiting each other's houses and estates, inluding Herstmonceux. Hodges was Liberal MP for Kent from 1830-32 and for West Kent from 1832 until the dissolution of Parliament in 1841; he was again elected in 1847 and sat until defeated in 1852. He died 14 May 1857. Hodges is listed in Pigott's Directory for 1840 as living in Benenden; Hemsted House was subsequently sold and demolished by its new owner, Gathorne Hardy, later Lord Cranbrook and replaced by a new building which is the basis for Benenden School, one of the top private girls' schools in the country. An impressive and evocative watercolour of this magnificent early brick castle. TOPOGRAPHY SUSSEX 19TH CENTURY WATERCOLOUR ENGLISH SUSSEX ARCHITECTURE TOPOGRAPHY

Di più insegna il vero metodo per il pasticciere e confetturiere, i doveri di un maestro di casa, le minute per le provvisioni delle quattro stagioni, e la maniera.

      dalla Società Tipografico Libraria,, Torino, 1832 - In-8° (178x114mm), pp. VI, 7-418, (2), legatura coeva m. pelle marrone con titolo e filetti in oro e fregi ornamentali in oro e a secco al dorso. 3 tavv. ripiegate in principio incise in xilografia: tavola di 16 coperti servita a 13 per cena, servizio a 16 per 24 coperti, tavola di 26 coperti servita a 29 (testo esplicativo al verso di ciascuna tavola). Sparsi aloni e fioriture, ma in buono stato. "Nuova edizione sulla quinta milanese con nuove aggiunte" di questo importante volume culinario contenente tutte le ricette classiche della cucina piemontese; la prima edizione con questo titolo era stata impressa a Milano nel 1791. Scopo del volume, variante della celebre opera "Il cuoco piemontese perfezionato a Parigi.", era quello di adattare i metodi di cucina francesi all'utilizzo di ingredienti italiani, come effetto del riflesso della cultura gastronomica francese su quella autoctona. L'opera, si legge nel frontespizio, "istruisce pure nella scelta, e bontà d'ogni cosa appartenente alla cucina, dando la spiegazione di tutti gli utensili necessarii a tale arte. Di più insegna il vero metodo per il pasticciere e confetturiere, i doveri di un maestro di casa; le minute per le provvisioni delle quattro stagioni, e la maniera di trinciare ogni sorta di cibi". L'anonimo autore, mai identificato, fornisce centinaia di ricette per zuppe, primi piatti, piatti di carne (di bue, vitello, maiale, montone, agnello, pollame, selvaggina) di pesce (per il mancato sbocco al mare del Piemonte, il pesce venne timidamente introdotto nella cucina piemontese d'importazione), legumi, insalate, uova, formaggi, frutta, dolci, prosciutti e salumi, sciroppi, dando altresì indicazioni sulle modalità di tagliare le carni, di servire i cibi a tavola nel modo più appropriato, etc. Da notare l'assenza della polenta, allora cibo esclusivamente contadino o comunque riservato alla popolazione dei più umili strati sociali. Cfr. Vicaire, "Bibliographie gastronomique", 899. Westbury, pp. 69-70.

        Sandwich Tern. Sterna cautiaca

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) A selection from Birds of Europe, Volume V Natores, published in London 1832-37. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½”. Lithograph accompanied by corresponding natural history description written by John Gould. Condition: Very good. Terns are seabirds in the taxonomic family, Sternidae. They boast some of the longest distance migrations of any other family of birds. The Sandwich Tern has an extensive global range estimated at 100,000–1,000,000 million square kilometres km². It has a population estimated at 460,000–500,000 individuals. The Sandwich Tern is among the taxa to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies. Parties to the Agreement are required to engage in a wide range of conservation actions which are describes in a detailed action plan. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalogue exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species.

        Slavery in Orange County Virginia. A rarely encountered ledger and separate receipt book documenting the sale of 37 slaves including at least 23 named individuals. Orange County was also home to James Madison at the time and he maintained approximately 100 slaves

      Woodlawn, Orange County, Virginia, 1832-1848. 6.5" x 8", 6" x 4.25". "Manuscript ledger, 70 leaves, 6.5"" x 8"", Orange County, Virginia, 1832-1835, bound in paper boards, being an account kept by Peter Scales (1790-1869) in his role as executor of the estate of Lucy Herndon Minor (1779-1832) of Woodlawn plantation in Orange County, Virginia. Spine worn off, front board and first few pages detached, expected toning and soiling, else very good condition overall. Offered together with the ledger's corresponding receipt book (or ""daybook"") 184 leaves, 6"" x 4.25"", [Orange County, Virginia], 1832-1848, bound in leather boards. Some warping to boards with a few spots of loss on leather, especially at corners, pages bear expected soiling, else very good condition overall. The ledger, meticulously-maintained with each page-spread numbered, details the settlement and liquidation of the estate of Lucy Herndon Minor, the widow of Dabney Minor (1779-1822) who built the plantation in the 1790s. The 1,100 acre plantation, called ""Woodlawn,"" included a large manor house, 600 acres of cultivated land, as well as extensive forests, fruit orchards and good supply of livestock (Enquirer, Richmond, Va., October 19, 1832, p. 4). Woodlawn, like most sizable Virginia plantations, was worked by slaves, and the present account book documents the appraisal and sale of at least thirty-seven individuals (valued close to $8,000) of which seventeen are named specifically including ""Edmund ,"" ""Warner,"" ""Wyatt,"" ""Dolly ,"" ""Lucy,"" ""Wm, Anthony,"" ""old Nanny,"" ""Martin ,"" ""Nelly,"" ""Ned ,"" ""Judy,"" ""Fanny,"" ""Esther,"" and ""Reynolds."" In once case ""George (a Slave)"" kept an account with Scales. George incurred a debt to ""P. Scales"" for $7.12 and ""D. Minor"" for $0.75 plus an additional 25¢ ""omitted"" totaling $8.12. The debt, which was noted in May 1834, was credited as paid in December 1833. On December 25, he was credited $5.12 by ""Farm Expenses"" and on the 27th ""By Corn"" worth $3. The credit page for the ""Estate of Mrs Lucy Minor deceased in a/c with P. Scales Ex of Mrs Lucy Minor deceased"" notes that on January 10, 1833 a total of 37 slaves were sold including ""15 Slaves divided Between 6 Legatees"" totaling $3,260 and ""22 Slaves divided between 3 Legatees"" worth $4,481. The accompanying receipt book (often referred to as a ""daybook"") details the transactions recorded in the ledger in chronological fashion. The receipts are accomplished in a variety of hands, some of which have been pasted down onto existing leaves. Most importantly, the daybook reveals more information on the identity of the slaves sold off by the Minor estate. For instance, on page 28 of the daybook, we learn that ""Edmund"" was a ""shoe maker."" We also learn the names of others who only appear as numbers in the aforementioned ledger including ""William,"" ""Jefferson,"" ""Old Magy,"" ""Harry,"" ""Mary,"" ""Amy,"" and ""Nelson,"" who was ""a slave with the wooden Leg."" The daybook also includes printed receipts from two Richmond newspapers, the Whig and the Inquirer, for advertisements for the auction of a slave in 1834. The daybook also includes a receipt for taxes paid in 1836 on ""10 negroes & 10 horse & Carriage [$] 5.10"" Whether or not there is any relationship between the Minors and Madisons, or amongst their slaves we have been not been able to ascertain, however, it presents a worthy research project."

        Coleccion de Leyes, Decretos y Ordenes del Augusto Congreso.

      1832 - Early Compilation of the Constitutions and Laws of Yucatan [Mexico]. [Yucatan]. Coleccion de Leyes, Decretos y Ordenes del Augusto Congreso del Estado Libre de Yucatan. Corregida y Aumentada por una Comision Nombrada por la Sesta Lejislatura Constitucional. Merida: Imprenta de Lorenzo Segui, 1832. Two volumes. [ii], xxiv, 176 [i.e. 276]; [ii], xx, 254 pp. Octavo (7-1/2" x 5"). Contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards, titles stamped to spine. Light rubbing to boards, chipping to spine ends, gilding worn away from titles, corners bumped and moderately worn, a few partial cracks to text blocks, early owner bookplates to front pastedowns.

A nice copy of a very scarce title. * Yucatan, which includes the present-day states of Campeche and Quaintana Roo, was a sovereign state during two periods of the nineteenth century. The first Republic of Yucatan was established on May 29, 1823 during the collapse of the Mexican Empire. It joined the succeeding Federated Republic of Yucatan on December 23, 1823. The second Republic of Yucatan was established in 1841. It lasted seven years, after which it rejoined the Mexican Federation. The first compilation of Yucatan's laws was issued in 1825. That and the more-extensive 1832 compilation offer a legal and legislative record of the first republic and an interesting look at Yucatan's place in the Federated Republic. Volume I: Comprende las del Constituyente; Volume II: Comprende las de las Seis Primeras Lejislaturas Constitucionales Desde 20 de Agosto de 1825 Hasta 5 de Marzo de 1832.

        Schul Gesänge für John Peter Becker [School chants for John Peter Becker], Baltimore April the 17., 1845

      Oblong octavo, 210 x 108 mm. Half dark tan leather. [i] (blank), [lvii] (music), [xii] (blank), [vii] (alphabetical index), [i] (blank). Notated in ink on hand-ruled staves (index in pencil). With octagonal cut-paper manuscript title label to upper in ink, "1832" added in pencil. Contains a total of 101 numbered pieces set for three high voices (most probably children's voices) in tablature for scale degree solmization (1= do, 2=re, 3=mi, etc., with "movable do"). Titling to each piece in German cursive. The majority of the pieces are hymns, with some liturgical chants; all belong to the Lutheran tradition. With text to no. 82, "Wie sie so sanft ruhn" [How softly they rest] only. Binding considerably worn, rubbed, bumped and shaken; spine lacking. Moderately browned; some creasing, dampstaining, and other staining; several leaves frayed at lower edge; some leaves very slightly trimmed at upper edge just affecting text. In quite good condition overall. . The present manuscript, in unusual numeric notation, dates from an important period in Lutheranism in America. "In the mid-19th century there was a new influx of immigrants from different areas of Germany, each of which had its own hymnal. In their desire to be doctrinally orthodox they turned away from much in these hymnals and rediscovered the rugged hymns of the 16th century. They abandoned the later isometric forms of the melodies in favor of the original rhythmic forms as they found them in Friedrich Layriz's chorale books, Kern des deutschen Kirchengesang (Nördlingen, 1844-45). These volumes, and his liturgical settings for Loehe's Agenda (Nördlingen, 1853), helped to make Layriz influential in forming the musical ideals of Lutheranism in the USA. As in Germany, the recovery of early Lutheran hymnody led to a rediscovery of classic Lutheran composers and their music." Robin A. Leaver, Ann Bond and M. Alfred Bichsel in American Grove III, p. 129. The three-part settings and their notation afford considerable insight into the practice of the Lutheran church of mid-nineteenth century America and also into the choral pedagogy of the time. Most probably compiled by or for a student of a German-speaking Lutheran school (or Sunday school) in Baltimore. We have been unable to locate any biographical information on Becker. The volume testifies to the influence of the Lutheran clergyman and polymath Johann Friedrich Wilhelm Koch (1759-1831), who in his Gesanglehre [Treatise on singing] for elementary school teachers (Magdeburg: Heinrichshofen, 1814), which was widely used in mid-nineteenth century Germany, describes and champions the characteristic numeric notation used here. The majority of hymns and chants in the collection are still widely used, especially by Lutheran churches in Germany and (in translation) elsewhere, even though many melodies have undergone minor changes. The oldest hymns date back to Luther (some of them, in turn, based on Latin chant), while there are also a few new contemporary pieces.The last number, "Auferstehn, ja auferstehn" [Resurge, yes, resurge], a hymn by Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock (1724-1803) famously quoted in Gustav Mahler's Second Symphony, is a later addition to the present collection (by the same scribe), not listed in the alphabetical index but on a separate page under the heading "Verschiedene Register" [various indexes] as its only entry. The text below no. 82 (not strictly an underlay) is an oddity: while the music is that of the funeral hymn "Wie sie so sanft ruhn," immensely popular in Germany at the time (text by J. P. Lange, 1802-84), the continuation of the text is not: "Wie sie so sanft ruhn, alle die Seligen, zu deren Wohnplatz jetzt meine Seele eilt. Wie sie so sanft ruhn, in die Gräber tief zur Verwesung hinabgesenket" [How softly they rest, all the blessed to whose dwelling my soul now is rushing. How softly they rest, here in their graves, deeply sunk for decomposition]. These words, not quite in the spirit of the church, are a quotation from the horror story "Das Raubschloss" (The Robber Baron Castle, 1812) by Heinrich Clauren (1771-1854), which was no less popular then. It may be assumed that the compiler of the present volume intended this as a joke, with another joke being the comment at the conclusion of no. 93, "Das Amen" [the Amen]: instead of "Ende" [end], the scribe wrote "Ente" [duck].

        Declaration of Independence, in Congress, July 4, 1776: The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America

      New York: Humphry Phelps and Bele Squire. October, 1832. Letterpress printing on cream paper, text and most decorations in black. With expert restoration, laid on rice paper. Approximately 29.5 x 20.5 inches overall, printed area 24 x 19 inches, or 71 x 48 cms. From the very beginning this document has been “the” pivotal document in U. S. history. The Declaration of Independence has been printed many, many times since its original publication in 1776. First as a broadside, then as an important addition in law books. The original of the Declaration [the “parchment” copy which was actually signed by Congress] was displayed, often in very poor conditions, and as a consequence suffered damage: the ink flaked and faded, and the parchment became darkened and creased, etc. Two early facsimile printings of the Declaration were made during the second decade of the 19th century: those of Benjamin Owen Tyler (1818) and John Binns (1819). Both facsimiles used decorative and ornamental elements to enhance the text of the Declaration. Richard Rush, who was Acting Secretary of State in 1817, remarked on September 10 of that year about the Tyler copy: "The foregoing copy of the Declaration of Independence has been collated with the original instrument and found correct. I have myself examined the signatures to each. Those executed by Mr. Tyler, are curiously exact imitations, so much so, that it would be difficult, if not impossible, for the closest scrutiny to distinguish them, were it not for the hand of time, from the originals." Rush's reference to "the hand of time" suggests that the signatures were already fading in 1817, only 40 years after they were first affixed to the parchment. One later theory as to why the Declaration was aging so soon after its creation stems from the common 18th-century practice of taking "press copies." Press copies were made by placing a damp sheet of thin paper on a manuscript and pressing it until a portion of the ink was transferred. The thin paper copy was retained in the same manner as a modern carbon copy. The ink was reimposed on a copper plate, which was then etched so that copies could be run off the plate on a press. This "wet transfer" method may have been used by William J. Stone when in 1820 he was commissioned by Secretary of State John Quincy Adams to make a facsimile of the entire Declaration, signatures as well as text. By June 5, 1823, almost exactly 47 years after Jefferson's first draft of the Declaration, the (Washington) National Intelligencer was able to report "that Mr. William J. Stone, a respectable and enterprising Engraver of this City, has, after a labor of three years, completed a fac simile of the original of the Declaration of Independence, now in the archives of the government; that it is executed with the greatest exactness and fidelity; and that the Department of State has become the purchaser of the plate." The copies made from Stone's copperplate established the clear visual image of the Declaration for generations of Americans. The 200 official parchment copies struck from the Stone plate carry the identification "Engraved by W. J. Stone for the Department of State, by order" in the upper left corner followed by "of J. Q. Adams, Sec. of State July 4th 1823." in the upper right corner. "Unofficial" copies that were struck later do not have the identification at the top of the document. Instead the engraver identified his work by engraving "W. J. Stone SC. Washn." near the lower left corner and burnishing out the earlier identification. Since the original Declaration consisted of text and signatures, the later broadsides and lithographs were embellished with borders, vignettes, other decorations, and facsimile signatures. Humphrey Phelps was a map maker in New York, and he together with Bele S. Squire, published a new version of the Declaration in 1832, the same year that Charles Carroll, the last surviving signer of the original Declaration, died. This has the original text and names the signatories in the conventional way, with woodcut illustrations of the American Eagle and the Capitol framing the text, surrounded by elaborate vignettes from the thirteen states with statistical information for each. An elaborate arch with climbing acanthus leaves and topped by the American Eagle is immediately framing the text. Additional vignettes naming the Presidents, reigning Sovereigns, Governors and the National Debt adorn each corner. The whole surrounded by an elaborate border. A very attractive and informative issue [Two copies located by OCLC: Albert Small Collection at University of Virginia, and Yale University].

        Schul Gesänge für John Peter Becker [School chants for John Peter Becker], Baltimore April the 17., 1845.

      . Oblong octavo, 210 x 108 mm. Half dark tan leather. [i] (blank), [lvii] (music), [xii] (blank), [vii] (alphabetical index), [i] (blank). Notated in ink on hand-ruled staves (index in pencil). With octagonal cut-paper manuscript title label to upper in ink, "1832" added in pencil. Contains a total of 101 numbered pieces set for three high voices (most probably children's voices) in tablature for scale degree solmization (1= do, 2=re, 3=mi, etc., with "movable do"). Titling to each piece in German cursive. The majority of the pieces are hymns, with some liturgical chants; all belong to the Lutheran tradition. With text to no. 82, "Wie sie so sanft ruhn" [How softly they rest] only. Binding considerably worn, rubbed, bumped and shaken; spine lacking. Moderately browned; some creasing, dampstaining, and other staining; several leaves frayed at lower edge; some leaves very slightly trimmed at upper edge just affecting text. In quite good condition overall.. The present manuscript, in unusual numeric notation, dates from an important period in Lutheranism in America. "In the mid-19th century there was a new influx of immigrants from different areas of Germany, each of which had its own hymnal. In their desire to be doctrinally orthodox they turned away from much in these hymnals and rediscovered the rugged hymns of the 16th century. They abandoned the later isometric forms of the melodies in favor of the original rhythmic forms as they found them in Friedrich Layriz's chorale books, Kern des deutschen Kirchengesang (Nördlingen, 1844-45). These volumes, and his liturgical settings for Loehe's Agenda (Nördlingen, 1853), helped to make Layriz influential in forming the musical ideals of Lutheranism in the USA. As in Germany, the recovery of early Lutheran hymnody led to a rediscovery of classic Lutheran composers and their music." Robin A. Leaver, Ann Bond and M. Alfred Bichsel in American Grove III, p. 129. The three-part settings and their notation afford considerable insight into the practice of the Lutheran church of mid-nineteenth century America and also into the choral pedagogy of the time. Most probably compiled by or for a student of a German-speaking Lutheran school (or Sunday school) in Baltimore. We have been unable to locate any biographical information on Becker. The volume testifies to the influence of the Lutheran clergyman and polymath Johann Friedrich Wilhelm Koch (1759-1831), who in his Gesanglehre [Treatise on singing] for elementary school teachers (Magdeburg: Heinrichshofen, 1814), which was widely used in mid-nineteenth century Germany, describes and champions the characteristic numeric notation used here. The majority of hymns and chants in the collection are still widely used, especially by Lutheran churches in Germany and (in translation) elsewhere, even though many melodies have undergone minor changes. The oldest hymns date back to Luther (some of them, in turn, based on Latin chant), while there are also a few new contemporary pieces.The last number, "Auferstehn, ja auferstehn" [Resurge, yes, resurge], a hymn by Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock (1724- 1803) famously quoted in Gustav Mahler's Second Symphony, is a later addition to the present collection (by the same scribe), not listed in the alphabetical index but on a separate page under the heading "Verschiedene Register" [various indexes] as its only entry. The text below no. 82 (not strictly an underlay) is an oddity: while the music is that of the funeral hymn "Wie sie so sanft ruhn," immensely popular in Germany at the time (text by J. P. Lange, 1802-84), the continuation of the text is not: "Wie sie so sanft ruhn, alle die Seligen, zu deren Wohnplatz jetzt meine Seele eilt. Wie sie so sanft ruhn, in die Gräber tief zur Verwesung hinabgesenket" [How softly they rest, all the blessed to whose dwelling my soul now is rushing. How softly they rest, here in their graves, deeply sunk for decomposition]. These words, not quite in the spirit of the church, are a quotation from the horror story "Das Raubschloss" (The Robber Baron Castle, 1812) by Heinrich Clauren (1771-1854), which was no less popular then. It may be assumed that the compiler of the present volume intended this as a joke, with another joke being the comment at the conclusion of no. 93, "Das Amen" [the Amen]: instead of "Ende" [end], the scribe wrote "Ente" [duck].

        Domestic Manners of the Americans

      London: Printed for Whittaker, Treacher & Co, 1832. First edition, with half titles. 24 lithographed plates by Ducôtes after drawings by Hervieu. 2 vols. 8vo. Three-quarter contemporary tan calf and marbled boards, hinges starting, but sound, gilt spine. Booklabel of George Wm. Mercer Henderson, Busby Lodge. Needless to say, contemporary Americans were not amused, and the resulting international rancor alone would be sufficient to place it among classic American travels. But if the tone of Mrs. Trollope's book, called by Streeter "a minor classic of looking down one's nose," does rankle, even the most hypersensitive of Americans can't help but chuckle aloud at the hilarious and rollicking Rowlandsonesque illustrations which accompany her schoolmarmish musings.
