        Autograph Letter Signed by Charles Kyte, Agent in Guiana, to Henry Beard in London, Sending the Accounts for his Cotton Estate, and Deploring the Behaviour of the Slaves "in Consequence of the New Law"].

      New Amsterdam, Berbice (British Guiana) 1832 - New Amsterdam, Berbice [British Guiana], 17 February 1832. Folio (ca. 30x18,5 cm). 2 pp., with an integral leaf of the related accounting. Addressed, sealed and with postal stamps on verso of the first leaf (including the Deal Ship Letter marking). Fold marks, minor hole on the margin after opening, affecting one word, otherwise a very good manuscript. Interesting early letter from the colony of British Guiana which had been consolidated in its current state (from the colonies of Berbice, Essequibo and Demerara) just a year before, in 1831. Written by Charles Kyte, apparently a local planter, the letter is addressed to an ex-governor of the Berbice colony Henry Beard (1821-1825 and 1826-1831) and vividly describes the local effects of the movement for the abolition of slavery: "I have been obliged to visit the West Coast since I wrote you, the slaves [on] Mr Blair's Estates and at Golden Grove having shewn very strong symptoms of insubordination, in consequence of the New Law, which coming to them without the intervention of the Colonial Government, has had[?] only the most mischievous effect; as they think it sets them beyond the authority of their Masters: they give three cheers for King William whenever the Flag is hoisted & the Horn blows for Breakfast & dinner, and are much disposed to make the extra leisure which the Law gives them as the reason for doing nothing, or the next thing to it. the women on Mr. Blair's Estates absolutely refused to clean more Cotton than 15th per day instead of 40 as I insist upon, or, as they frequently have done & can easily do, 60th! I have been very firm & determined with both Gangs." Kyte, most likely refers to the consolidated slave ordinance, published by the government of the British Guiana in January 1832. "It provided, as we have seen, for the still greater amelioration in the condition of the slave, reducing the period of labour to nine hours; and for children under four years of age and pregnant women to six hours; it increased the allowances; and reduced the extent of punishment to fifteen lashes" (Dalton, H.G. The History of British Guiana: in 2 vols. Vol. 1. London, 1855, p. 387). Slavery in British Guiana was abolished with the enforcement of the famous Slavery Abolition Act of 1833.

        The Memorial and Justification of Mr. Barton ... [bound with] The Affairs of the Australian Agricultural Company

      Cornhill [and] London: Pelham Richardson, 1832 &, 1833. Two works bound in one, octavo; the first 73 pp. with folding table; the second 33 pp.; very good in recent tan half calf. Two works on the Australian Agricultural Company. Two very scarce works relating to the scandals that engulfed the Australian Agricultural Company, both written by the Company's agent William Barton, father of Sir Edmund Barton, the first Prime Minister of Australia. The Australian Agricultural Company was founded in London in 1824. On the advice of Commissioner Bigge settlers with capital were encouraged to take up land in Australia and members of the Macarthur family were actively involved in the establishment of the Company. Having taken up a vast land grant in Port Stephens in early 1826 and despite huge support and investment, the Company initially struggled. During this period a quarrel between Barton, appointed as accountant in 1824, and the manager Sir William Parry, led to Barton's resignation. The first book, therefore, is literally Barton's "memorial and justification", and of great interest for the correspondence that is printed, especially that of Barton himself and also Sir William Parry's. Barton's detailed publication is one of the more significant early works relating to Port Stephens and the Company generally. The second book, published the following year, was also an integral part of the public defence and remuneration claim of Barton against the Company. Barton published this text of the company's accounts 'incontestably to prove that it is not attributable to my conduct' that the reports from New South Wales were so brief and unpromising. He also appends letters from key figures in the Company, notably one from John Macarthur who, amidst complaints of shattered health, asserts 'The Grant, with a very slight exception, is a barren waste.' Ferguson initially listed only the Mitchell Library copies of both of these works, but by the time he printed the Addenda volume was able to record one additional copy of the Memorial and Justification (his own) and three of the Affairs.

        Autograph Letter Signed ("Basil Hall") to "My Dear Madam."

      Slough [England], March 23, 1832. - 1 page, 8vo., (7 ¼ x 4 ½ inches) with red wax seal affixing a few strands of Sir Walter Scott's hair, dated 1831 (original horizontal folds, mounted on heavier cardstock). A charming letter from Captain Basil Hall, the British naval officer, traveller, and author best known for his "Account of a Voyage of Discovery to the West Coast of Corea and the Great Loo-Choo Island in the Japan Sea" (1818), which was one of the first descriptions of Korea by a European. Hall is also known for his "Travels in North America in 1827-28" (1829), whose observations sparked an angry response from American readers. In this letter he offers his autograph to a lady he met at a party, along with the proposition of a trade: he offers some of Sir Walter Scott's (1771-1832) hair for that of Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792): "It is probable that you possess some of Sir Joshua's hair & I shall be happy to make an exchange with you. At all events I send you a couple of hairs cut from Sir Walter Scott's head, which may possess a value in your eyes & help as wings to support and enhance the value of this autograph." Reynolds was an influential eighteenth-century English painter, and appears to be related in some way to the recipient of this letter: "I have had great satisfaction in meeting with a person so nearly connected with Sir Joshua Reynolds, & only regret that I was not made aware of this circumstance sooner, as there is no person respecting whose private life I feel more anxious to gain some information." Hair collecting was wildly popular in the nineteenth century, both as a sentimental remembrance of a loved one and as a collectible item analogous to an autograph of a famous person. The lock of hair here is dated 1831, the year before Scott's death (and the writing of this letter). For more information about this letter, or a warm welcome to see it and other books in our library at 72nd Street, NYC, please contact Megan Scauri, M.A., M.L.S., in the Rare Book Department.

        Asia for the Elucidation of the Abbe Gaultier's Geographical Games

      London: John Harris, 1832. Engraved map, 345 x 432 mm. (image size), original hand-colouring; mounted. Aspin's educational map based on Gaultier. An attractive children's educational map of Australia, Asia and the east coast of Africa. The map is based on the work of the Abbé Gaultier, an educationalist originally from Piedmont, who had settled in France in 1780 and later fled the revolution to London. Gaultier began publishing his works in the late eighteenth century, and his philosophy of teaching geographical knowledge through games was an influence on game-makers and educational publishers both on the continent and in England. He died in 1818 but his Geography continued to be reprinted. In 1815 it was "collated with the author's last Paris edition by Jehoshaphat Aspin", a cartographer (see Juliana Bayfield, 'Games of Virtue and Learning', The La Trobe Journal, 1997). Aspin seems to have produced the first edition of this work in 1821. Aspin's versions of the maps evidently had some success as an entertainment and teaching aid. They were originally issued as a portfolio or atlas, which included maps of many different parts of the world, some blank, as here, and others with geographical information added. Although bibliographical information is a little sketchy, similar English editions appear to have been published in 1821, 1823, 1829 and 1838. This particular map seems to derive from the "fourth" edition, the Atlas adapted to the Abbe? Gaultier's Geographical Games of 1838, in which some maps were dated as early as 1832. All editions of the full atlas are now very scarce, with the 1838 edition being the only one recorded in Australia, at the National Library of Australia. The National Library also has a copy of this individual map dated 1823, but otherwise identical to this one.

        New Mode of Preparing a Spirituous Solution of Chloric Ether" in American Journal of Science and the Arts, 21, 1832)

      - FIRST EDITION OF A LANDMARK PAPER present in both the famous Dr. Haskell F. Norman Library and the Landmarks of Science and Medicine from the Library of Andras Gedeon, both collections handled by Christie's. In this paper, Guthrie presents one of three independent discoveries of Chloroform that were, ironically, all discovered at about the same time. Guthrie's discovery was particularly important as it was literally first and because the method he employed it his was the closest to the modern method. Samuel Guthrie was a 19th century physician and chemist who discovered the anaesthetic chloroform (tri-chloromethane) in 1831, by distilling chloride of lime with alcohol in a copper barrel, using it as a mild anesthetic in amputation surgeries. When first made, it was known as "Guthrie's Sweet Whiskey." In Guthrie's communication [paper offered here]. . . it will be seen that he was unaware that his preparation was a new substance. His purpose was to find an inexpensive method for the manufacture of 'chloric ether'" (Faulconer & Keys, Foundations of Anesthesiology, Vol. I, p. 442). Guthrie wrote: "During the last six months a great number of persons have drunk of the solution of chloric ether not only freely, but frequently to the point of intoxication." This substance was variously known as the 'Dutch liquid', 'chloride of hydrocarbon' and 'chloride of olefiant gas'. It was almost certainly dichlorethane, a substance which has many of the properties of chloroform" (ibid). ALSO includes landmark paper on North American spiders by Nicholas Marcellus Hentz and a paper on the geological age of reptiles by Gideon Mantell. REFERENCES: Norman 959.

        A MEMOIR OF MISS HANNAH ADAMS, WRITTEN BY HERSELF, WITH ADDITIONAL

      1832. Good. ADAMS, Hannah [and Mrs. Hannah F. Lee]. A MEMOIR OF MISS HANNAH ADAMS, WRITTEN BY HERSELF, WITH ADDITIONAL NOTICES BY A FRIEND. Boston: Gray and Bowen, 1832. 110 pp. 12mo., green cloth with paper spine label. Fair to good, rear joint starting, spine label scraped with only remnants legible. Light pale spotting to cloth. Interior foxed, hinges starting. Rear flyleaf has small chip and small closed tear. Lovely lithograph frontispiece portrait, slight soil to page edges, not affecting image. Hannah Adams (1775-1831), though she thought herself timid and unworldly, was the first American woman to support herself as an author. Her first book, An Alphabetical Compendium of Various Sects (1784), went through several editions; later editions are titled A View of Religions. She was regarded by her contemporaries as an able and industrious author; yet she herself made only modest claims for her achievement. Her memoir, published posthumously, is the chief source of information about her; and, with characteristic modesty, it was written partly to raise money for her ailing younger sister. (N.A.W.)

        Sketch of the History of Van Diemen's Land , illustrated by a map of the island and an account of the Van Diemen's Land Company

      London: John Richardson, 1832. Octavo, with two engraved plates and a large hand-coloured folding map (closed tear neatly repaired), very good in original boards with green cloth spine and printed label. With a fine Arrowsmith map. First edition. An important account of Tasmania, intended for distribution among shareholders and prospective shareholders of the Van Diemen's Land Company, reprinting several of the company's reports, including the significant (and rare) third report of 1828 detailing the explorations of the company's explorers, Alexander Goldie, Henry Hellyer, and Joseph Fossey. It was Hellyer who 'found a cliff of slate on the Arthur River, and promptly engraved on a large slab the words "Whoever is found stealing slate from this quarry, will be dealt with according to law". Apart from the inherent unlikelihood of anyone making off with large quantities of slate, the claim of ownership is revealing for its total self-assurance in the face of the wilderness…' (People, Print and Paper). The work is wide ranging, including sections on geography, wildlife, trade and emigration. Of interest is the correspondence contained in the appendix between the governor George Arthur and his superiors in London, including Viscount Goderich and Sir George Murray, regarding the escalating tension between settlers and the Tasmanian Aborigines. The appendix also includes the substantial "Extract from the Report of the Aborigines Committee, 19th March 1830." From the library of Australiana collector Tristan Buestt with his bookplate.

        Johann Wolfgang Goethe. Halbfigürliches Porträt.

      . Radierung und Kupferstich, 1832, auf aufgewalztem China. Darstellungsgröße. 24,6:20,7 cm. Schöner und ungewöhnlich breitrandiges Exemplar. Mit der Adresse der Murchner'schen Kunsthandlung in Leipzig. Mit kleinem Kratzer im Text, jedoch außerhalb der Darstellung. Literatur: Nagler 5; Rollett CVIII.. "Schwerdtgeburth und Goethe kannten sich seit 1816. Goethe sammelte Bildnisse der Personen, die ihm nahestanden, und bat deshalb auch den Weimarer Hofkupferstecher um ein Bildnis. Schwerdtgeburth ließ sich daraufhin von Johann Joseph Schmeller 1831 für Goethe porträtieren und ersuchte ihn nun seinerseits, ihm selbst für ein Porträt zu sitzen, was Goethe aber ablehnte. Bei diesem Gespräch prägte sich Schwerdtgeburth die Gesichtszüge Goethes jedoch so genau ein, dass er sie in seinem Atelier direkt zeichnen konnte. Von dieser Zeichnung ließ sich Goethe überzeugen und förderte nunmehr das Vorhaben Schwerdtgeburths, einen Porträtstich anzufertigen. Dieses letzte zu Lebzeiten Goethes entstandene Bildnis zeigt den Dichter bei einem Baum, wie er in sein Notizbuch schreibt. An der Ausführung des strengen Kupferstichs nahm Goethe regen Anteil, erlebte dessen Fertigstellung aber nicht mehr." (Zitiert aus Katalog: Goethe, Boerner und Künstler ihrer Zeit. Düsseldorf, C.G.

        Emigration and Colonization, A Speech, delivered at a general meeting of the National Colonization Society, June, 1830

      London: Effingham Wilson, 1832. Slim octavo, 15 pp.; an excellent copy in modern tan half calf over marbled boards. South Australia before settlement. Rare political pamphlet: 'an explanation and advocacy of the three principles for which the National Colonization Society stood, namely, selection of emigrants, concentration of colonists and the sale of waste lands' (Ferguson). The pamphlet was written after the collapse of the Society proper, but seeking to have the principles endure. Hutt prints a lecture he delivered in the form of an address to his colleague Wilmot Horton, and quotes particularly from a colonist in New South Wales (among much of interest, including an aside on the difficult conditions being endured by the Aborigines of New Holland). William Hutt (1801-1882) was a British Liberal closely involved with the colonisation of both South Australia and New Zealand. A serving MP from 1832, Hutt took on any number of colonial positions including helping form and become the chairman of the New Zealand Company.

        Paris oder das Buch der Hundert und Ein. Aus dem Französischen übersetzt von Theodor Hell. 6 in 3 Bänden.

      Potsdam, Riegel, 1832-1833.. 8°. Zusammen etwa 2300 Seiten Halb-Leinenbände um 1920 mit Rückenschild. Fromm 19588. Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des erfolgreichen Sammelwerkes "Paris, ou le livre des cent-et-un", bei dem sich mehr als Hundert Schriftsteller zusammentaten, als der Verleger (und dann auch Herausgeber) Ladvocat in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten geriet. Anküpfend an die explizit im Vorwort genannten Werke von Mercier und Lesage, soll hier ein Gesamtpanorama der Kapitale Paris in vielen kleinen, oft satirischen Miniaturen gezeichnet werden. Unter den Beiträgern finden sich: Balzac, Barthelemy, Beranger, Bozet, Chateaubriand, Cuvier (der Naturwissenschaftler!), Eugene Delacroix (der Maler), de Vigny, Dumas, Victor Hugo, Lamartine, Nodier, Sainte-Beuve, Sue, Thiers, Tissot und viele andere. Interessant ist der Eröffnungsartikel von Jules Janin über die Vielfältigkeit des Kosmos Paris, den eine Generation vorher Mercier allein darzustellen versuchte, der aber jetzt nur noch von einem Kollektiv verschiedener Autoren in all seinen Facetten geschildert werden könne. Die Beiträge widmen sich dem literarischen Leben, Theatern und Revuen, den Auswanderern, Kaffeehäusern, Krankheiten und Seuchen, Spielhöllen, der Irrenanstalt etc. Die deutsche Ãœbersetzung von Theodor Hell (eigentlich: Karl G. Th. Winkler, 1775-1856) ist offenbar gleich parallel zur französischen Originalausgabe erschienen, wobei nur diese Potsdamer Edition bis zum sechsten Band weitergeführt wurde. Die Ausgaben bei Cotta, Vieweg und Basse brachen nach dem ersten Band ab (vgl. Fromm 19589-91). - Gut erhalten, wenig gebräunt. So komplett sehr selten.

        Autograph letter signed to Mr. Chauvin presenting a copy of the official account of his voyage

      no place: no date but circa, 1832. Single sheet of laid paper, 207 x 260 mm., folded vertically to form a letter, written in a small and neat hand to first page and addressed - but not stamped - to the last, old folds; excellent. Dumont d'Urville presents his new work to a scientific opinion-maker. Attractive letter in which the great Pacific and Antarctic explorer Dumont d'Urville presents the first parts of his official voyage account to the natural historian F.J. Chauvin of Caen, active in botanical studies in the mid-nineteenth century. Chauvin's herbarium is still held at the Université de Caen, and his name is memorialised in several plant names. In the letter, Dumont d'Urville sends Chauvin the "first two parts" of his voyage account, in the hope that they will of interest. It may be that he was sending the first parts of the historical narrative of the voyage, first published in 1830, but given Chauvin's botanical studies, it is probably fair to assume that he was being sent the two parts of the Botanie volume, edited by Lesson & Richard (I. Essai d'une Flore de la Nouvelle Zelande. II. Sertum Astrolabianum, Paris, 1832-4). Only as a postscript to the letter does Dumont d'Urville remember to offer his regards to Chauvin's wife and little girl. Dumont d'Urville had sailed on the Astrolabe (Duperrey's old ship the Coquille, renamed in honour of La Pérouse) from Toulon in April 1826. He was instructed to explore the principal island groups in the South Pacific, completing the work of the Duperrey voyage, on which the commander himself had been a naturalist. Because of his great interest in natural history, huge amounts of scientific data and specimens were collected, described and illustrated in sumptuous folio atlases. The expedition stopped at the Cape of Good Hope, passed through Bass Strait visiting Port Phillip, and arrived at Sydney on 1 December 1828. Extensive visits were made to both Sydney and Parramatta, where Dumont d'Urville visited Samuel Marsden; the expedition sailed for New Zealand in January 1827, explored Tasman Bay, found a pass between an island in Cook Strait and the northern shore of South Island (the island consequently named D'Urville and the strait French Strait) and worked up the coast of North Island, completing the 'most comprehensive exploration of the islands since Cook's death'. They made Tonga in April 1827, explored the Fiji Archipelago, New Britain and New Guinea. In November, after a stop at Amboina, they coasted along the north-west coast of Australia and reached Tasmania. In 1828 they continued to Vanikoro in search of traces of La Pérouse, and stopped at Guam in the Marianas, before returning via the Cape of Good Hope, reaching Marseille on 25 March 1829.

        Neuestes Gemälde von Australien

      Vienna: Anton Doll, 1832. Octavo, with six full-page copperplate engravings; some old and small library stamps throughout, early shelf-mark on front board, but a very nice copy in an attractive contemporary European binding of glazed paper masquerading as quarter calf with russet label, marbled paper spine and boards. An early German-language history of New Holland, featuring crisp images of Sydney and Hobart, after Leopold Beyer and Sainson respectively. The work begins with a helpful introduction to the voyages of exploration, including a chronological table, and is followed by a long review of New Holland (pages 39-126). Later sections detail many of the most important islands in the Pacific, including good reviews of Hawaii, New Zealand and New Guinea. All of the plates make a lovely contribution to the visual history of the Pacific. Apart from the views of Sydney and Hobart, there are also strong depictions of Carteret Bay on the Bismarck Archipelago, the funerary practices of the Solomon Islands, a scene of the restrictions for taboo in Tonga, and of a British settlement in Tahiti. The work was published as volume 30 of Schütz's series Allgemeine Erdkunde, and a list of all the titles is given at the back. As this individual volume is the only one in the series relevant to the Pacific, it is commonly sold by itself: both the Mitchell Library and National Library of Australia copies are recorded as a single volume.
