        Domestic Manners of the Americans

      London: Whittaker, Treacher, and Co., 1832. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, finely bound by Bayntun-Riviere of Bath in three-quarters blue leather with elegantly marbled boards and endpapers, with the pages trimmed and their top edge gilted. Frances Trollope's report on American manners. Of course, Frances Trollope was Anthony Trollope's mother. Her husband, his father, was a lawyer whose law practice suffered from Trollope's habit of yelling at his Clients. Ultimately, the father took up farming, at which he also was a miserable failure. In 1827, Frances moved to America, living first in Fanny Wright's utopian community in Tennessee and, when that community failed, removing to Cincinnati, a frontier town at the time, to open a general store. As Frances Trollope had no experience in that line of work, the store was a miserable failure as well, adding to the family's financial stress. However, after her return to England, the indomitable Mrs. Trollope, having observed the cultural peculiarities of the Americans first-hand, wrote "Domestic Manners of the Americans", in which she presented a caustic view of the Americans, portraying them as uneducated and lacking in proper manners, and describing America's appalling middle-class egalitarianism. Acerbic and witty, the book was an instant sensation in England -- with multiple editions of the work being issued during its first year of publication -- and brought her from the brink of financial ruin to prosperity and fame. Of course, the book was not well received in America and of it Mark Twain said "Mrs. Trollope was so handsomely cursed and reviled by this nation [for] telling the truth... she was painting a state of things which did not change at once. ... I remember it." The book is illustrated with 24 lithographs by August Hervieu who accompanied Mrs. Trollope to America, a fact which resulted in much speculation about their relationship. Frances Trollope went on to further literary success and fame by authoring numerous well-received novels. Without doubt her experiences shaped her the careers of her two most literary sons, Thomas Adolphus Trollope, and the more famous Anthony Trollope. A Fine copy, elegantly bound. (Please also see our listing for a RARE print published by Childs & Inman in Philadelphia in response to Frances Trollope's Domestic Manners of the Americans mocking Mrs. Trollope and containing a visual speculation about her relationship with August Hervieu.)

        [TWO PRINTED LAND GRANT DOCUMENTS, COMPLETED IN MANUSCRIPT, FOR A FORTY-ACRE PLOT IN CHEROKEE COUNTY]

      [Cherokee County, Ga.]. 1832, 1835.. Two sheets, approximately 10 x 8 inches, attached at bottom with ribbon and wax seal. Old folds. First sheet separating at folds. Second sheet separated at folds; top half in several pieces, bottom half still attached to first sheet. Light soiling from wax seal. About good. A pair of documents concerning a land grant for forty acres of land in Cherokee County, Georgia, surveyed in 1832 and granted in 1835, based on the Land Lottery of 1832. The first document grants forty acres of land in Cherokee County to Sarah Dubose, widow, from Burke County. The land, situated in the fourteenth district of the first section, was surveyed May 31, 1832, and the plot is mapped out at the top of the sheet. It is signed by Willim W. Carnes, Comptroller General, and Thomas Haynes, Treasurer, on either side of the map. The second document, dated Sept. 19, 1835, affirms the grant as according to the "Act to lay out the gold region on the lands at present in the occupancy of the Cherokee Indians, into small lots, and dispose of the same by separate lottery," passed on Dec. 24, 1831. The whole is signed on the front below the ribbon with the signature of Wilson Lumpkin, governor. Georgia used a lottery system to distribute land taken from the Cherokee and Creek Indians. The lot sizes varied, with the largest being up to 490 acres and the smallest being 40 acre lots distributed during the Gold Lottery of 1832. An act passed by the Georgia General Assembly on Dec. 24, 1831, authorized approximately one third of the 160-acre land districts previously set aside for the sixth lottery to be designated as gold districts and divided into 40-acre lots, to be distributed in a separate lottery. This separate lottery was the seventh land lottery, known as the Gold Lottery of 1832. The Cherokees went to court to prevent distribution of lands which they claimed belonged to them, and won the case (Worcester v. Georgia), but Andrew Jackson ignored the decision in his zeal for Indian relocation. Sarah Dubose was the widow of a Revolutionary War soldier who received several plots of land during the lottery.

        Swift - Cypselus murarinus; White-bellied Swift - Cypselus alpinus

      London 1832 - ***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.***This splendid hand-colored, folio size lithograph from John Gould's (1804-1881) monumental work "Birds of Europe" is in excellent condition, measures 14 ½” x 21 ½” and magnificently displays the author's scientific skill and attention to detail. 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 catalog 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. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine bird books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his monumental "Birds of Europe" have been recolored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance All of the Gould bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.

        Andrew Jackson Disdains Rewarding One Of His Political Enemies

      "He appears to have some interest of feeling in this case for his Georgia & friends and particularly as it is given...to such an open undisguised tra- & ducer of the administration as he says Mr. Longstreet is." & Jackson believed that changing officeholders & would prevent the development of a corrupt & bureaucracy. He implemented the theory of ro- & tation in office, declaring it "a leading principle & in the republican creed." In practice, this fine & theory involved rewarding Jackson's support- & ers and fellow party members with government & posts, as a way to strengthen party loyalty. This & system of firing opponents and filling their & places with party loyalists came to be known as & the "spoils system," and Jackson received the & reputation of being its initiator. & During Jackson's first term, there was a high & tariff on imports of manufactured goods made & in Europe. This made those goods more expensive than ones from the northern & U.S., raising the prices paid by planters in the South. Southern politicians argued & that high tariffs benefited northern industrialists at the expense of southern & farmers. South Carolina went so far as to claim the right to "nullify"Ñdeclare & voidÑthe tariff legislation, and more generally the right of a state to nullify any & Federal laws which went against its interests. Although Jackson sympathized & with the South in the tariff debate, he supported a strong union with effec- & tive powers for the central government and violently opposed nullification. He & vowed to send troops to South Carolina to enforce the laws, and in December & 1832 issued a resounding proclamation against the "nullifiers," stating that he & considered "the power to annul a law of the United States, assumed by one & state, incompatible with the existence of the Union." South Carolina, and by ex- & tension all nullifiers, the President declared, stood on "the brink of insurrection & and treason. In 1833, Congress passed a "force bill" which authorized Jackson to & use violence to preserve the Union. & Augustus Baldwin Longstreet was the publisher of the Augusta (Georgia) States & Rights Sentinel, a newspaper that advocated nullification in the recent crisis & and thus opposed Jackson's policies. The year after this letter, he would publish & what is considered the South's first important literary work, "Georgia Scenes, & Characters, Incidents, Etc. in the First Half Century." His brother Gilbert shared & his politics. These Longstreet brothers were uncles of Confederate General James & Longstreet - Lee's famed "war horse." Gilbert owned rights to the Augusta- & Savannah mail route and there were complaints that under his aegis, the mails & were not delivered often enough. The Georgia congressional delegation brought & these to the President's attention. & Perhaps spoils politics was also on Jackson's mind when he wrote the following & letter, which was ostensibly about bidding and the granting of other Georgia & postal routes. The William Barry mentioned was Jackson's Postmaster General. & John Forsythe, his Secretary of State, was a Georgian who, when South Carolina & nullified the federal tariff in 1832 and asked Georgia to follow persuaded his & fellow Georgians to support Jackson instead of its neighbor. & Autograph Letter Signed, Washington, November 8, 1834, to Charles K. Gard- & ner, acting postmaster responsible for postal appointments, criticizing the selec- & tion of political foe (and possibly inept) Longstreet for a government contract & instead of one of the President's supporters. "I am this moment advised that there & is great complaint of unfairness in the letting of the route in Georgia - from Augusta & to Savannah. The complaints came to me through a high source and is well calculated & to do the Department an injury, as it would seem to throw a suspicion that it was & done to the injury of our friends, to favor Mr. Longstreet a bitter enemy and constant & reviler of the administration. It is stated that Mr. Reesides proposed to carry the mail & for $10,000 per annum to run the one half the time on the South Carolina side & one & half on the Georgia side, and the Messrs. Holliday proposed to carry the mail on the & Georgia side for $8,500 and round by Waynesborough, ten miles round, for $8,800. & Mr. Reeside's proposal was accepted and as alleged transferred to Mr. Longstreet. It & is complained of because passing on the east on the South Carolina side of the river is & a useless route & costs the government $1,500 without any public benefit. If this ar- & rangement is not closed, let it be kept open for the return of Major Barry & I wish you & to see Major Forsythe on this subject - he appears to have some interest of feeling in this & case for his Georgia friends and particularly as it is given by Mr. Reesides to such an & open undisguised traducer of the administration as he says Mr. Longstreet is."

        PROCLAMATION BY ANDREW JACKSON, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. [Printed Broadside, text begins:] "Whereas, a Convention assembled in the State of South Carolina, have passed an Ordinance... [declaring "unauthorized by the Constitution" and therefore null and void, the acts of Congress imposing duties and imposts on the importation of foreign commodities] ... Done at the City of Washington, this 10th day of December, in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and thirty-two ... Andrew Jackson. By the President: Edward Livingston, Secretary of State."

      [Imprint at bottom:] New York: G.F. Hopkins & Sons, Printers and Stationers, 44 Nassau Street, [1832]. Folio (29-1/4 x 16-1/4 inches; 80 x 50 cm.).

American Imprints 13105 [Washington, DC printing]; cf. Streeter Sale 1738 [idem] . One of the most important assertions of the supremacy of federal over state law in the early history of the nation, this is Jackson's famous proclamation in which he denounced nullification as treason and told the people of South Carolina in no uncertain terms that he proposed to enforce the laws of the United States. "- I consider then, the power to annul a law of the United States, assumed by one State, incompatible with the existence of the Union, contradicted expressly by the letter of the Constitution, unauthorized by its spirit, inconsistent with every principle on which it was founded, and destructive of the great object for which it was formed." Of all of the known broadside printings of this important Jackson proclamation, OCLC lists only one printed on silk (U. of NC) of the same approximate dimensions and format as ours - but without an imprint

        Short-Toed Eagle. Circaeëtus brachydactylus

      London: [by the Author, 1832-1837]. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by Edward Lear, printed by C. Hullmandel. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. 21 5/8 x 14 3/8 inches. A beautiful image from John Gould's 'The Birds of Europe': a work which, according to Hyman, 'included some of the most remarkable bird drawings ever made'. This plate is from the second of John Gould's great ornithological portfolios. Gould undertook this work not only hoping to build on the success of his first work (on the birds of the Himalaya mountains), but also in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. It was his opinion that too much attention had focused on the exotic, whilst the beauty of the more local species was ignored. He wrote in the preface to the work from which this image comes: 'It has been frequently remarked that the productions of distant countries have received a much larger share of attention than those objects by which we are more immediately surrounded; and it is certainly true, that while numerous and costly illustrations have made us acquainted with the Ornithology of most other parts of the world, the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, more interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.' The images in this work are the first to be published by Gould that show the liveliness of treatment that was to become such a feature of later works. This break from the traditional methods of bird depiction can be largely attributed to the influence of and contributions from Edward Lear: 'They are certainly among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made, [for] it is evident that Lear endowed them with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, his energetic curiosity, his self-conscious clumsiness and his unselfconscious charm'. (Hyman) Cf. Anker 169; cf.Balis 101; cf.Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf.Nissen IVB 371; cf.Sauer 2; cf.Zimmer p. 251.

        Freckled Bittern

      London, 1832-1837. . Print. Lithographed plate with original hand-colour, approx 37.5 x 55.5 cms, from the Birds of Europe, by Edward Lear for Gould. The Birds of Europe, Gould’s second major project (described by Hyman as his magnum opus), is dominated by the extraordinary contribution of Edward Lear. Arguably Gould's inspiration for the project was Lear's folio lithographed work on Parrots. Lear chose the large folio size which became general for later bird books, he was also among the first to draw from life where possible and he was the first to appreciate the full potential of the new process of lithography for ornithological illustration. Lear learned the process of lithography from Charles Hullmandel, author of 'The Art of Drawing on Stone' and the printer of the Birds of Europe. Hullmandel visited Germany to learn the technique directly from Senefelder, its inventor. Hundreds of faithful impressions could be taken from a lithographic stone, and drawing directly onto the stone preserved the style and sponteneity of the original drawing, rather than translating the original medium into the lines and dots necessary when etching onto copper or steel. It was perfect for showing strong flight feathers, or plumage ruffled by the wind. Lear's financial difficulties - he was forced to abandon his work on Parrots and sell the copyright to Gould - enabled Gould to employ him more fully in the Birds of Europe than he had in his work on Toucans. Lear supplied 67 plates, and chose to illustrate many of the largest and most charismatic birds. He also influenced the work of his fellow artist, Gould’s wife Elizabeth. The Birds of Europe received a rapturous welcome at the time, and is arguably among the most magnificent and important ornithological works ever produced.

Ultimately, the father gave up his legal practice and took up farming, an endeavor at which he had not experience whatsoever and at which he also was a miserable failure, leaving the family in great financial distress. In 1827, Frances Trollope relocated to America, living first in Fanny Wright's utopian community in Tennessee and, when that community failed, removing to Cincinnati, a frontier town at the time, to open a Museum and a Bazaar. As Frances Trollope had no experience in that line of work, the enterprise was a miserable failure as well, adding to the family's financial stress. However, after her return to England, the indomitable Mrs. Trollope, having observed the cultural peculiarities of the Americans first-hand, published her debut book, "Domestic Manners of the Americans" (1832), in which she presented a caustic view of the Americans, portraying them as uneducated and lacking in proper manners, and describing America's appalling middle-class egalitarianism and other shortcomings. Acerbic and witty, the book was an instant sensation in England and rescuing the family from the brink of financial ruin and bringing instead prosperity and fame. Of course, the book was not well received in America and of it Mark Twain said "Mrs. Trollope was so handsomely cursed and reviled by this nation [for] telling the truth... she was painting a state of things which did not change at once. ... I remember it." On her trip to and from America, and during her stay there, Mrs. Trollope was accompanied by her three youngest children: her son Henry and her two youngest daughters, Cecilia and Emily, as well as by the French artist August Hervieu. Hervieu's participation, officially as the tutor and companion to the Trollope children, gave rise to much speculation about the exact nature of the relationship between Mrs. Trollope and Hervieu. Clearly the two were close, as Hervieu sold his Art in America to help maintain the group. In the Rare Print offered here, Hervieu is shown painting with a silly-looking Henry serving as a model for Lafayette. A falsely plump Frances Trollope is shown seated with her two unattractively-portrayed fat-cheeked daughters reclined next to her. An older man and and a foolish-looking Thomas Trollope (the husband who did not, in fact, take part in the trip) are shown watching Hervieu paint with Thomas Trollope standing in front of hung piece of art depicting a stag. Thomas Trollope is so placed that the animal's horns appear to be coming out of Trollope's head, thus portraying him as being cuckolded. [Cuckolds are sometimes described as "wearing the horns of a cuckold" or just "wearing the horns", an allusion to the mating habits of stags, who yield their mates when defeated by rival male. Interestingly, Anthony Trollope's bookplate itself depicts a stag.] The noteworthy Print offered here takes one back to the very foundations of the writing Trollopes and to the events which gave birth to an important English writing family. The Print is quite rare indeed and this is the only copy we have seen in over 30 years of diligently searching for Trollope rarities; a remarkable survival, a QUITE RARE piece of Trollope ephemera, and a collection-distinguishing item for the Trollope collector, other copies of which can be found at Princeton University, the Pennsylvania Historical Society, the Smithsonian Museum, and the Library of Congress. QUITE RARE INDEED.

        Globe Terrestre Dresse par Fx. Delamrche, Succr. de R. De Vaugondy 1832

      Paris, 1832. No Binding. Very Good. 9 ½ inches (24 cm.) diameter; 21 inches (53 cm.) total height. Single pedestal globe with horizon ring, armature & meridian all of wood, wear and staining on meridian at point where fits into stand, some chipping at extremities, else fine; globe with vibrant original color and clear, sharp patina; some abrasion & losses, mostly in lower and upper extremities; overall very good plus condition. An attractive, very capably executed table or desk globe, in the distinctive style of the Delamarche firm, "the most successful French entrepreneur[s] in maps and globes" (Dekker/ van der Krogt). This was an original work by the son, Felix, who succeeded his father in the management of the firm in 1817. The globe is geographically up-to-date, notably in the South Pacific and Alaska, with information from then recent Russian voyages, such as Krustenstern's. Related to this, at the time the globe appeared and reflected on it, Europeans were beginning to differentiate between various regions of the Pacific. These were based on a better understanding of cultural and other differences between the peoples of various areas encountered on these recent voyages. For example, in 1831 the French explorer Dumont d'Urville proposed the use of the terms "Micronesia" and "Melanesia" for various parts of the Pacific as distinguished from Polynesia. Printed dashed lines on this globe, labeled "Division Oceanique," roughly approximate the three eventually accepted divisions of what is referred to as the South Pacific, though the regions are not named on the globe. Delamarche also clearly identifies on the globe the more traditional divisions of the Pacific between "Grand Ocean Boreal," "Grand Ocean Equinoxial," and "Grand Ocean Austral." The Delamarche firm was the first to successfully reach a fairly sizable, general market of globe buyers. It accomplished this by reducing the cost of constructing globe stands and other parts, while maintaining a high level of quality in the maps of their globes, which are cleanly and attractively engraved. Traditional brass meridians were replaced by wooden ones, and the horizon rings and armatures supporting the rings were greatly simplified and made from either wood or stiff board. Also, the firm generally used simpler, single-pedestal stands rather than four-legged designs. Yet, as this well-preserved example demonstrates, Delamarche's design and materials proved to be very durable. Charles-Francois Delamarche (1740-1817), the founder of the family firm, was the successor of the great map and globemaking family, the Robert De Vaugondys, as is cited in the title of this globe. Delamarche, in fact, seemed to have cornered the globe market in France by also incorporating the stocks of Jean Fortin and Jean Lattre. Delamarche's son, Felix took over the firm upon his father's death and managed it until 1848, when Gosselin succeeded him. The firm continued well into the latter 19th century under yet another Delamarche descendent. Dekker/ Van der Krogt, Globes from the Western World, pp. 63, 74; Dekker, E. Globes at Greenwich, pp. 321-25; Suarez, T. Early Mapping of the Pacific, p. 25.

        Marsh Harrier. Circus rufus

      London: [by the Author, 1832-1837]. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by E. Lear, printed by C. Hullmandel. Very good condition. 14 1/4 x 21 1/8 inches. A beautiful image from John Gould's 'The Birds of Europe': a work which, according to Hyman, 'included some of the most remarkable bird drawings ever made'. This plate is from the second of John Gould's great ornithological portfolios. Gould undertook this work not only hoping to build on the success of his first work (on the birds of the Himalaya mountains), but also in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. It was his opinion that too much attention had focused on the exotic, whilst the beauty of the more local species was ignored. He wrote in the preface to the work from which this image comes: 'It has been frequently remarked that the productions of distant countries have received a much larger share of attention than those objects by which we are more immediately surrounded; and it is certainly true, that while numerous and costly illustrations have made us acquainted with the Ornithology of most other parts of the world, the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, more interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.' The images in this work are the first to be published by Gould that show the liveliness of treatment that was to become such a feature of later works. This break from the traditional methods of bird depiction can be largely attributed to the influence of and contributions from Edward Lear: 'They are certainly among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made, [for] it is evident that Lear endowed them with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, his energetic curiosity, his self-conscious clumsiness and his unselfconscious charm'. (Hyman) Cf. Anker 169; cf.Balis 101; cf.Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf.Nissen IVB 371; cf.Sauer 2; cf.Zimmer p. 251.

        The Works of Lord Byron: with his Letters and Journals, and his Life by Thomas Moore [in Seventeen Volumes]. COMPLETE AND EXTENDED SET IN ORIGINAL CLOTH

      John Murray, 1832-33. 17 vols., sm. 8vo., First Edition, with all half-titles (save vols I and. IX as usual), 17 engraved frontispieces (most original tissue guards present), engraved and printed titles in each volume, and a folding facsimile, frontispieces, guards and engraved titles mildly foxed, all text remarkably crisp and clean; original dark-green moiré cloth, gilt backs, uncut, patterned endpapers (save where rebacked), all bindings rubbed at extremities, backstrips chipped at heads and tails, four volumes neatlky rebacked with old backstrips laid down, cases of four volumes loose or shaken (but all text blocks entirely sound), one volume with short split in backstrip, generally a nice, notably clean set in publisher's original binding. All volumes have title blocked in gilt at head of backstrips (this is a very early example of gilt blocking directly onto cloth) and the gilt of every volume is uniformly bright and clear. The frontispieces and title-vignettes are by Finden after various artists. This edition was originally intended as fourteen volumes, as stated on the printed titles of the first twelve volumes. 'When this Edition was first announced...the printer calculated that the whole might be comprised in fourteen volumes. While, however, the Notices of Lord Byron's Life were for the second time passing through the press, it was suggested to the Publisher, that the time had come when the Public had a right to look for such notes and illustrations to Lord Byron's text, as are usually appended to the pages of a deceased author of established and permanent popularity. These additions will extend the Work to seventeen volumes; the last of which will [and does] include a very copious and careful Index to the whole collection.' (Advertisement, vol. XIII). AN ORIGINAL COPY AND NOT, AS SOMETIMES, A MADE-UP SET. Despite the broken cases, which are wholly forgivable given the fragility of the publisher's binding which was not intended to last, this set is in very good contemporary state and has considerable shelf presence. COMPLETE SETS OF THIS NOTABLE EDITION ARE VERY SCARCE, THE MORE SO IN THIS EXTENDED FORM. Coleridge, xlvi; CBEL III, 187(2a). . Catalogs: literature.

        Arte y reglas de la lengua Tagala

      [Manila,] Jose Maria Dayot for Tomas Oliva, 1832. In 8vo (150 mm x 98 mm). 1 [blank] + 919 (recte 929). Printed on rice paper, text in Spanish and Tagalog; gathering X misbound after gathering Y; occasional browning, tears in four leaves (X1, Ee4, Aaa2 and Vvvvv3, without loss), foremargin of one leaf chipped with loss (Tttt1, not affecting text), but a very good copy in contemporary limp vellum preserving one (of two) closure loops; ownership inscription of ?Oscar Dürr, Manila 1865? on front free endpaper. Fine copy of one of the earliest works on Philippine language. Third edition of San José?s Tagalog grammar, perhaps the most influential grammar published in the early Spanish colonial period. All early editions are rare. Tagalog, the most widely studied language in the Philippines, was ?spoken in the most thickly populated and fertile regions of southwestern Luzon, including the areas adjacent to the colonial capital of Manila. Where Tagalog artes are concerned, the most highly esteemed name was that of the Dominican priest Francisco Blancas de San José. With the aid of the Tagalog printer Tomas Pinpin, Blancas published his massive Arte y reglas de la lengua tagala in 1610. It went through two more editions, in 1752 and 1832, and was consistently held up by the missionary writers as well as by Filipino intellectuals of the succeeding centuries as the most comprehensive codification of the Tagalog language. As an exemplary arte, Blancas?s work reveals some of the more dominant tendencies that were to be reflected and refracted in the books of other missionary writers on language . . . . The three editions are not wholly identical in content, particularly where the prefatory remarks and dedications are concerned?

The title reads ?Voyage de découvertes autour du monde et a la recherche de La Perouse?, the last part added to the original title; in fact one of the ulterior motifs for the mission was the location of the first Astrolabe vessel, wrecked in 1788, under the command of La Perouse. The Astrolabe (the one wrecked) was found in the Santa Cruz Islands by Dillon a few years before D?Urville set sail to the Pacific; the expedition confirmed the claim regarding the Astrolabe?s shipwreck location, finally settling the affair and one of the most important 18th century maritime tragedies.Dumont D´Urville (1790 ? 1842) was a French sailor, explorer and navy officer; his accomplishments gained him fame and made him one of the most emblematic characters of the Golden Century of French Marine exploration. During his voyages, he discovered the Venus de Milo, currently at the Louvre. Only a few years after this expedition, D?Urville parted again, his findings would be published in the ?Voyage au Pole Sud et dans L?Océanie sur les corvettes L?Astrolabe et La Zélée?.The atlas is composed of a selection of maps and plates. The maps are mostly double page and show the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand, New Guinee, Fidji & Tonga, Vanikoro, etc.; the plates are after the expedition?s draughtsman Louis de Sainson and show the costumes & ceremonies of the natives, constructions, landscapes, cultural exchanges between the members of the expedition and natives, and a fascinating view of the Astrolabe from the beach whilst is being rocked by the tide. Six of the plates are coloured.This edition is exceedingly rare, only one copy has appeared at auction in the last 30 years (source, AE) and several bibliographies are unaware of its existence.Brunet, II, 882.

        Neuestes Gem?lde 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 Sch¸tz'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.

First Pickering Edition (second edition overall; first published 1795), complete in two volumes. 8vo: viii, [2], [v]-cxxxv, [1],148; vi,261,[1]pp, with numerous woodcut illustrations (each tale with head- and tail-piece) by John and Thomas Bewick. Original brown ribbed cloth, covers decorated in blind with elaborate arabesques; spines ruled in blind and lettered in gilt, pale lemon end papers. Beautifully rebacked with original cloth spines laid down, else a Fine set, bindings firm and gilt bright, pages pristine (and largely unopened) without a trace of foxing, illustrations crisp. Tattersfield 2.543B. Menzies 1704. Lowndes 2098. Not in Roscoe. & Originally published by Ritson,"who continued from time to time to make additions to his own copy, from which the present edition has been carefully printed. The original engravings, by the celebrated Bewick, have again been used; and from the improved art of wood-cut-printing, will be found superior in clearness and beauty to the first impression." (from the Advertisement). The editor of this edition, according to Lowndes, was Ritson&#39;s nephew, who added in the appendix the Tale of Robin Hood and the Monk, of which Ritson was unaware. Lowndes also concurs that the "woodcuts are better struck off and clearer." Joseph Ritson was an English antiquarian notorious for vicious and blistering criticisms of his literary contemporaries, including Thomas Warton (History of English Poetry) and, most famously, Samuel Johnson (the edition of Shakespeare produced with George Steevens in 1783 particularly irked Ritson). But the work upon which Ritson&#39;s fame rests&#151;"his single greatest achievement"&#151; is this exhaustive Robin Hood. "For many years he had attempted to collect all the &#145;historical or poetical remains&#146; concerning Robin Hood, and his research was so thorough that only a handful of &#145;remains&#146; of any significance have subsequently been discovered."

De Beça», personalizaçãopropriapara os subescritores da edição. Exemplar da tiragem especial em papel velino de grande formato. Obra publicada pelas forças liberais à época exiladas em Inglaterra. Inocêncio II, 189. "CARTA CONSTITUCIONAL DA MONARCHIA PORTUGUEZA. Londres. 1832. 32.º de 32 pag. D'esta edição feita com caracteres quasi microscopicos, e notaveis por sua belleza, se tiraram exemplares em papel velino magnifico, de grande formato, adornados com um retrato de S. M. I. o Duque de Bragança. Vi na livraria da Imp. Nacional um d'estes exemplares, cujas folhas medem de grandeza treze e meia pollegadas de altura sobre nove e meia ditas de largura, ao passo que a composição das paginas impressas abrange apenas duas e um quarto pollegadas de altura por uma e um quarto ditas de largura. Distingue se entre as multiplicadas edições que da mesma Carta se têm feito." Grande Enciclopédia Portuguesa e Brasileira, VII, 505. "Gorada a segunda tentativa de D. Miguel, (a Abrilada) em 1824, porque D. João VI, refugiado a bordo duma nau de guerra inglesa surta no Tejo, sob a protecção do corpo Diplomático acreditado em Lisboa, repudiou o golpe de Estado e condenou o infante ao banimento, desterrando-o para Viena. Pela morte do monarca, abre-se a querela da sucessão ao trono, que foi, cumulativamente entre nós, uma sangrenta luta de regimes políticos. O primogénito do rei defunto, o príncipe D. Pedro fora aclamado imperador do Brasil mas, alegando os seus direitos de primogenitura para efeitos de sucessão ao trono, outorgou aos Portugueses a Carta Constitucional de 1826, ao mesmo tempo abdicava os seus direitos em sua filha D. Maria da Glória. Para sanar de vez a questão dinástica, reconhecia-se D. Miguel como regente do reino, depois de ter celebrado esponsais com a rainha sua sobrinha. Jura a Carta Constitucional e convoca as Cortes, não segundo aquela mas à moda antiga dos Três Estados (clero, nobreza e povo) as Cortes proclamam-no rei absoluto de Portugal. O novo estado de coisas dura de 1828 até 1834. Este período de realeza miguelista foi cortado por tentativas juguladas de restabelecer a Carta e por fim por uma guerra civil. Com o triunfo dos constitucionalistas e o novo e definitivo banimento de D. Miguel. Entra desde então em pleno vigor a Carta Constitucional de 1826. A Carta Constitucional, diploma de inspiração reconhecidamente inglesa, organizava quatro poderes do Estado: Legislativo, Executivo, Judicial e Moderador. O Poder Legislativo era exercido por duas câmaras &#150; a Câmara dos Deputados e a Câmara dos Pares. A primeira era eleita por sufrágio indirecto dos cidadãos eleitores; a segunda era constituída por pares (correspondentes aos lordes) nomeados pelo rei, sem número fixo, que exerciam as suas funções vitalícia e hereditariamente. O rei interferia na constituição e exercício do Poder Legislativo de duas formas: pelo direito de convocar extraordinariamente as Cortes, de as prorrogar e adiar, e ainda de dissolver Câmara dos Deputados, e, sobretudo pelo veto absoluto, negando a sanção às leis votadas pelas duas câmaras. O poder Executivo era exercido pelo rei, por intermédio dos ministros, que escolhia e demitia livremente. Mas esta liberdade teórica era na prática condicionada pelas chamadas indicações constitucionais. Em regime parlamentar os governos viviam não só da confiança da Coroa, mas também do Parlamento. A carta Constitucional de 26 vigorou essencialmente até à Republica. Mas sofreu a sua vigência uma interrupção duma dezena de anos, que foi a das perturbações do Setembrismo."

        Viaje alrededor del mundo hecho en los aÒos 1768, 69, 70 y 71

      Madrid,: Imprenta de Don Tom·s Jordan, 1832.. Six volumes, duodecimo, 6 engraved plates (one in each volume), original blue printed wrappers preserved, early owner's name on the title-pages, old stamps from Barcelona library, bookplates of JosÈ Gallart Folch; a charming set in contemporary Spanish quarter calf, gilt. Very uncommon first Spanish edition of Cook's first voyage, published in 1832 as part of a series called the "New Library of Modern Voyages useful and interesting for Spanish youth."This work has a charming series of six plates which include a scene in Tahiti featuring the Chief Mourner, two New Zealand scenes (a warrior in profile, the war canoe), and concluding with a dramatic scene on board the Endeavour. The presence of the original printed wrappers bound-in is of more than passing interest as the back wrappers give an interesting overview of how the set was marketed, being sold for 6 reales per volume as they were issued whether in Madrid or in the provinces, and stressing the value of the work for the instruction of youth. Each volume would subsequently be priced 8 reales per volume.The translator, Alvarado y de la Pen?a, based his work on the French edition. He also prepared at least one other work of Australian interest, an edition of George Barrington published in Madrid circa 1815.Beddie listed copies in the Mitchell and National Library.Beddie, 680.

        On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures

      London,: Charles Knight, 1832.. Small octavo, engraved title-page, original maroon cloth, neatly rebacked retaining original spine. 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 lending library label adhered to front laid-down endpaper.
