William Harper
Columbia, (South Carolina): A.S. Johnston, 1832. 28 pp. Octavo, original printed tan self wrappers. "MANY ARE LOOKING FOR CIVIL WAR, AND SCENES OF BLOODSHED": FIRST EDITION OF THE EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE REPORT, ORDINANCE, AND ADDRESSES, 1832, SOUTH CAROLINA'S SHATTERING CALL FOR NULLIFICATION, TRIGGERING ANDREW JACKSON'S LEGENDARY PROCLAMATION IN RESPONSE... First edition of this scarce pivotal 1832 document proclaiming South Carolina's fiery resistance to federal authority, containing the incendiary Ordinance of Nullification. A key document in the nullification battle that Andrew Jackson countered with his December 1832 proclamation that urged South Carolina to refuse the legacy of "authors on the first attack on the Constitution," In fragile original self wrappers. By the 1830s, many of South Carolina's white citizens rose against federal authority, "motivated by a fundamental fear: slave violence... and protective national tariffs." In particular, passage of the 1828 Tariff "led the state to consider shattering a union that seemed at best indifferent and at worst hostile" (Meacham, 53-4). In early 1832 a state convention assembled, seeking to explain "nullification as the legitimate, peaceful and rightful remedy" (Houston, Critical Study, 105). This led to a subsequent convention of delegates, many of them nullifiers, that met in Charleston from November 19-24. There, on the 22nd, Judge Colcock "introduced the Ordinance of Nullification. On Friday [Turnbull's] Address to the People of South Carolina was reported, and later an Address to the People of the United States was r … [Click Below for Full Description]

"With abundat courage and an inflexible will, yet cheerful, good-natured, and highly capable, he was from the beginning the natural leader of the mission (caricatured as Abner Hale in James Michner's novel Hawaii).... The phenomenal success of the mission due in considerable part to the role he and his wife, Sybil, played in winning the strong allegiance of the principal chiefs.

NAPIER, William Francis Patrick.
London: John Murray; Thomas & William Boone, 1832–40. 6 volumes, octavo (221 × 134 mm). Contemporary full calf by Bedford, tan lettering- and dark green numbering-pieces, narrow bands with gilt dotted roll, compartments with central lozenge composed of acorn, flower and scrolled foliate tools surmounted with a crown, arabesque corner-pieces, double fillet panels to the boards and board edges, edges stained pale yellow, foliate roll to turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Very light shelf-wear, some foxing of the endpapers and blanks, but overall a very good set indeed. 55 engraved battle plans. The first three volumes are second editions, the later three firsts. The first volume was published by John Murray, who did not exercise his option on the next three having made a loss, Napier therefore published the rest of the history through Boone having raised the money by subscriptions. The work certainly divided opinion, "Soult considered it 'perfect', Sir Robert Peel 'eloquent and faithful', the Spanish general Alava felt it too pro-French, and a British officer in India demanded satisfaction on his return for a 'most unfounded calumny' about his conduct at Barossa" (ODNB) As a result most volumes are prefixed with "justificatory pieces" in answer to Napier's critics, his controversy with Beresford over Albuera was particularly rancourous. Perhaps judgement is best left to the acknowledged master chronicler of the conflict, Sir Charles Oman, who described Napier's work as "magnificent (if somewhat prejudiced and biased)".

Esquirol, Etienne.
Librairie Medicale de Crochard, 1832. Esquirol's work on mental disorders including hallucinations and illusions, and the treatment of the same, secured him a prominence among early practitioners of forensic psychiatry. "Along with Philippe Pinel (1745-1826), Jean-Étienne Esquirol (1772-1840) is often considered one of the fathers of clinical psychiatry. While his indebtedness to the views of his teacher, Pinel, is indisputable, his own later contributions to the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorder are often considered to be clinically superior and more sophisticated than those of his mentor. Esquirol's contributions to the psychopathology of affectivity are especially important and differ in many important respects from those of Pinel, who also stressed the role of the passions in mental disorder (Louis C. Charland's entry for Esquirol in the Encyclopedia of Clinical Psychology). "Like Pinel, Esquirol did not attempt to analyze mental illness from a philosophical standpoint but sought to classify and describe the various kinds of insanity he encountered in his practice. => Esquirol coined the term 'monomania,' a concept which anticipated the modern view of schizophrenia, and he was the first to distinguish hallucination from illusion" (Heirs, emphasis ours). Offered here is his landmark work known in English as "Observations on the illusions of the insane, and on the medico-legal question of their confinement."It originated as a "Memoire lu a l'Institut, le 1er octobre 1832" (p. 1) and is here reprinted in the first book edition from the Annales d'hygiène et de … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, chez les libraires de la place de la Bourse, 1832 ; in-8, bradel large demi maroquin vert-lierre à grands coins, titre au dos et date en queue dorés, tête dorée sur témoins, couverture beige doublée avec absence du coin supérieur droit, illustrée du bois gravé de la deuxième page, avec la mention fictive de "Deuxième édition", conservée (Fechoz) ; XXX, [2], 270 pp. Edition originale, grand dessin au titre et vignettes in-texte d'après Grandville ; l'auteur de ce violent pamphlet contre Louis-Philippe et son gouvernement est Sébastien Benoît Peytel, poète, journaliste puis notaire à Belley dans l'Ain où il fut accusé du meurtre de sa femme et de son domestique et qui, malgré le soutien d'Alexandre Dumas et de Lamartine, sera condamné à mort et guillotiné le 28 octobre 1839 sur le champ de foire de Bourg-en-Bresse. Le batonnier de Lyon, Pierre-Antoine Perrod a, dans un ouvrage paru chez Hachette en 1958, démontré l'erreur judiciaire ; véritable "polar", cet ouvrage met en scène Honoré de Balzac et le peintre-dessinateur Gavarni qui furent les défenseurs ardents et lucides de Peytel ; il met aussi en lumière, tous les détails des erreurs qui cumulées et imbriquées, conduisirent à la condamnation. On n'avait pas non plus pardonné à Peytel d'avoir publié le présent ouvrage.

Bell, James
Glasgow: A. Fullarton, 1832. First Edition. Octavo. In 6 volumes.15 engraved plates, one large folding Political Scale of the Globe, and one folding view of principle mountains in the world, complete with 41folding maps which many reflect the level of how much was yet uncharted. The map of Africa, for instance, shows how little was known in 1832 especially on both sides of the interior north and south of the equator. The map of Central America and Mexico shows much of the Southwest as it was virtually unknown outside of its mission stations and some of the larger Indian tribes. James Bell was a celebrated geographer whose expertise in history led him to produce several works on geography culminating in this his principal work, a project that took over a decade with special attempts to have the latest discoveries of the first quarter of the Nineteenth Century incorporated into his work. A beautiful set, bound in full calf, raised bands with compartments fully gilt decorated, double black spine labels gilt, all edges marbled with marching endpapers, internally fresh with the exception of some off-setting from plates, no foxing, joints appear to have been strengthened, bookplate of the W.D. Mackenzie, son of the Scottish banker and railway entrepreneur, Edward Mackenzie who, in 1853 purchased Fawley Court through auction. After the death of his father, William inherited the house.

Hubard, William James
[Virginia, 1832. Oil portrait on canvas, approximately 20 1/2 x 15 1/2 inches, mounted in a 19th-century gilt wooden frame to overall 29 1/2 x 23 3/4 inches. Stamped "Franck & Lundin Frames, Richmond, VA", on verso of canvas. Unsigned. Upper right edge re-adhered to stretcher, scattered in-painting to face, collar, hands, and background, light professional cleaning and re-varnish. Minor chipping to frame. Very good. This fine portrait of Chief Justice John Marshall shows the famed jurist near the end of his life, seated in a typically awkward pose. The artist, William James Hubard, was born in Warwick, England. Michael David Zellman relates in 300 YEARS OF AMERICAN ART that "[a] man named Smith spotted Hubard's early talent for cutting likenesses from paper and exploited him as a child prodigy in England, before bringing him to the United States in 1824. After three years in Boston and New York City, Hubard broke ties with his manager. Gilbert Stuart persuaded Hubard to give up silhouettes for oil paints. With the help of portraitist Thomas Sully, Hubard began a career as a portrait painter in 1829." He specialized in small cabinet-sized portraits which, like this portrait of Marshall, usually measured about twenty-one by seventeen inches, with the subject full-length in a dark but dramatically lighted setting. While working in Baltimore, he embarked upon a project of painting a series of American statesmen. He completed a portrait of Andrew Jackson (present whereabouts unknown), and painted John C. Calhoun (Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington), and Henry Clay (Univers … [Click Below for Full Description]

CLAUSEWITZ, Carl von.
Berlin: Ferdinand Dümmler, 1832-4. Berlin: Ferdinand Dümmler,, 1832-4. The most profound exposition of the philosophy of war 3 volumes, octavo (195 x 124 mm). Near-contemporary green cloth, black morocco twin labels to spines, edges speckled blue. Colophon leaf present in vol. III, absent in vol. II (colophon on verso of final text page in vol. I). Spines sunned with small stain to spine of vol. III, cloth lightly marked, contents foxed in places (more severely to vol. I), running dampstains at fore edges. A very good set. First edition. Clausewitz's works were published posthumously, edited by his widow, and these, the first three volumes of ten, contain the first appearance of Vom Kriege (On War), his dialectical analysis of the function of war in human society. "The book is less a manual of strategy and tactics, although it incorporates the lessons learned from the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, than a general enquiry into the interdependence of politics and warfare and the principles governing either or both... [it] won immediate recognition as the most profound exposition of the philosophy of war - a place that has never been disputed" (PMM). Carter and Muir's estimation in 1967 of the continuing relevance of Clausewitz's work is confirmed by Daniel Moran in his article on Clausewitz in The Oxford Companion to Military History (2001) where it is described as "the most important general treatment of its subject yet produced". This set has the small contemporary ink-stamps, ownership inscriptions, and press-marks of the Bibliothek der leichten Infanterie … [Click Below for Full Description]

Imprimé á Eastbourn: 1832. [56] pages. Illustrated throughout with nine drawings in ink including one of Theresa Tidy herself (Reginald's mother, Elizabeth). The manuscript concludes with an Epitaph for Theresa Tidy in a different hand, supposedly written by 'one of the young community who were annoyed by the system she proposed.' This would appear to be Graham herself as it signed with her initials. Elizabeth Graham's EIGHTEEN MAXIMS OF NEATNESS AND ORDER was first published in 1817; it went through many editions.

Octavo (223 x 140 mm). Later embossed cloth and grey paper boards, spine directly lettered gilt. Board corners worn, a few professional repairs to leaf edges and margins, marginal side-rule to one opening in blue ink, the odd finger mark or stain; a very good copy of a scarce title. First and only edition of this criticism of Malthusian theory in which the author considers various ways for the immediate amelioration of poverty – "the nutriment on which sedition feeds" (p. ix). "Thomas Rowe Edmonds (1803–1896) was probably one of the most competent statisticians of the middle of the nineteenth century, with an extensive practical knowledge of conditions in London, where he worked for many years as an actuary. His Enquiry into the principles of Population... has perhaps the best description of the urban situation at the time. Population was increasing there at a slower rate than in the country. He ascribed this not only to the sickliness of town life, because in fact there was better medical attendance to be had there, '... and there are more comforts and foreign commodities, considered now as necessaries rather than as luxuries, procured with facility'. It is rather the 'greater efficacy of the preventive check' which distinguishes town life, at least where it has a chance to operate.

[CONVICTS & TRANSPORTATION] BRITISH PARLIAMENT.
London: Ordered, by the House of Commons, to be printed, 27 September 1831 & 22 June 1832. Folio, the two reports bound together, 177pp. and 162pp. respectively; in a newat modern binding of half brown calf, spine lettered in gilt. Two important reports on "secondary punishments", the additional punishments meted out to repeat offenders already within the prison system (most famously within the Australian context Norfolk Island and Port Arthur). As a matter of course the reports include significant notice of transportation, inland settlement, the granting of land, and also relations with Aborigines.The 1831 report includes printed interviews with any number of prominent settlers, notably the Sydney merchants James and William Walker, the vigneron and author James Busby, the Bigge-inspired coloniser Thomas Potter Macqueen, the South Australian promoter Edward Gibbon Wakefield, and Edward Macarthur (the son of John who spent a great deal of time in England). The report concludes with a fascinating overview of conditions experienced by the convicts in the 1820s, with some interesting discussions of the subject.The 1832 companion report follows directly on, and it is valuable to have the two together. It begins with notice of the pressing urgency of further investigation and reform, before presenting its own series of interviews, including a repeat performance by Busby. If anything, the new witnesses are an even more interesting lot, including the botanist Allan Cunningham and the magistrate John Stephen. For the first time several people involved with the prison hulks were cal … [Click Below for Full Description]

Berlin, Nauck, 1832. Zusammen ca. 3500 S. Moderne Halbleinen mit Rückenschildern (neu beschnitten). Seltene Originalausgabe. Grundlegende Biographie mit umfangreichem Dokumententeil. Preuß (1785 - 1868), wurde für sein Lebenswerk 1841 zum Historiographen der brandenburgischen Geschichte ernannt. Für dieses monumentale Werk hat es nach eigenem Angaben 16 Jahre der Vorbereitung bedurft, bevor der erste Band erscheinen konnte. Preuß machte in seiner Darstellung keinen Hehl aus seiner Bewunderung für seinen Helden, enthielt sich aber jeder Schmeichelei und "berechnenden Fürstendienerei". "Als wahre Schatzgrube für alle künftigen Biographen Friedrichs wird sein fleißiges Werk immer Bedeutung behalten" (ADB). Auf Preuß? Anregung veranlaßte die Regierung 1840 die Herausgabe der "Oeuvres de Frédéric Le Grand", deren Redaktion Preuß im Auftrag der Preußischen Akademie überlassen wurde. 1857 konnte er den Druck der 30 Bände abschließen. - Henning, Bibliographie, S. 76; ADB XXVI, 581 ff. - Aus verschiedenen Exemplaren zusammengesetzt.
