      New York: N. C. Nafis, 1833. n. Hardcover. An Early 19th Century American "Hocus Pocus" in Remarkable Condition. mm (). 71 pp. PUBLISHER'S ORIGINAL GRAY-GREEN PRINTED BOARDS, upper cover with titling and an illustration of a gentleman identified as the author, lower cover with two amusing woodcuts, "The Lawyer and his Client" (a bewigged gentleman astride an ass) and "Hocus Poke-us" (two boys fighting). In a brown cloth chemise and a (slightly rubbed) matching calf-backed slipcase. With a folding frontispiece depicting a conjurer and his assistant onstage before an amazed crowd. Toole-Stott 724. Small stains at top and bottom of spine, covers just slightly grubby, endpapers a bit browned, text with light, inoffensive foxing, but, for what it is, AN UNUSUALLY FINE COPY, the fragile binding entirely sound, and the text remarkably fresh and clean. Given the materials it was made from and the hard use it would have been expected to suffer, this is an exceptionally well-preserved copy of a popular handbook of conjuring tricks, an early American edition of a work first compiled in 1722 by the British magician Henry Dean. Dean's work was itself based on Reginald Scot's influential "Discoverie of Witchcraft" (1584), which sought to discredit belief in "supernatural" forces by exposing the tricks by which conjurers deceived their audience. In the publications of Dean and subsequent editors, this exposé of witchcraft evolved into a guide for performing parlor tricks. Our edition is a reprint or reissue of the 1831 version published by R. Schoyer; because the word "renowned" is spelled "renowed" on both title pages, Toole-Stott speculates that Nafis bought sheets from Schoyer, suggesting that our item would have been a reissue. These insubstantial guide books typically experienced considerable uncareful use in the hands of amateur (and often juvenile) magicians; consequently, the few copies that do appear on the market are in deplorable shape.

Hand coloured plate titled 'Fraisier' (wild strawberry pot) de Bernardin de St. Pierre, Papillons et Insectes d'Europe. The story around this plate has been narrated in various French Scientific and Literary classics, eg Oeuvres Completes de Bernardin de St. Pierre, under Etude Premiere Immensite de la Nature - page 3, second half - page 5 - and includes his related ref. to discovery of micro(be)-life by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek and Robert Hooke (both mis-spelled) at top of page 5. Hand coloured plate titled Auricula de la Belgique / The Auricula of Belgium with No. 18 underneath. Beautiful arc of auriculas around the lady's head. Just an afterthought - if published at the same time - early 1830's, the origins might have been somewhat obscured eg. printed 'clandestinely' in France, who co-conspired with the Belgians to regain their 'freedom' - due to the Dutch rule / occupation of Belgium till 1831, as part of the redrawing of Europe after Napoleon. The Dutch wanted to suffocate the Belgian Book / Journal/ Educational printing press by imposing massive stamp duties, so they would have to by from rich, mainly Amsterdam publishers. This was just one of many grievances, which led to the Belgian Revolution against the Dutch. A horrible, shameful 5 years of Dutch history - led by the then King William I and his acolytes. He was proud, and callous as he was dim. Monochrome plate SIGNED and dated A. Jenner, 1831, was done as a personalised engraving by the famous C. Heath (of Charles and William Heath Brothers). Later C. Heath generation became founders of Lloyds of London insurers. And much, much more. Heavy volume. Member of the P.B.F.A.

        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, Barthélemy, Béranger, Bozet, Chateaubriand, Cuvier (der Naturwissenschaftler!), Eugène 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 Übersetzung 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1833 - Eleven volumes, publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Soiling and some wear to bindings, with minor chipping to some labels. Some preliminaries detached, occasional foxing, toning, or tanning, some small ink library stamps, embossed blind-stamps, and ink ownership inscriptions to titlepages, some dampstaining, an occasional closed or repaired tear, some leaves closely trimmed, a handful of contemporary ink notations, five leaves in photo-facsimile. Overall, a very good set in decent condition. Florida Imprints of Extraordinary Rarity A monumental set of early Florida laws, covering the period between the first and second Seminole wars, and comprising the first eleven sessions of the legislative council for the territory of Florida. The Florida territory was formed after the region was ceded to the United States under the 1819 Adams-Onis Treaty, following the successful incursion by General Andrew Jackson's troops in 1818. Jackson was briefly military governor, but after the merging of East and part of West Florida, William Pope Duval became the first official governor of the new Territory in 1822 and the Legislative Council held its first session. The 1823 publication of the first session also includes the Treaty of Cession, Jackson's ordinances, the Act of Congress organizing the Territorial Government, the U.S. Constitution, and Spanish regulations for the allotment of lands. Not surprisingly, there is a wealth of material in these session laws regarding relations with Native Americans and African-Americans. The volumes comprising this set are exceedingly rare, with no examples at auction of any of the early sessions, and the only retail examples being the Eberstadt copy of the fourth session, sold back in 1937 for $65, and one copy of the ninth session currently in stock with us at $1500.

Nine original parts in their original drab printed wrappers. Complete with the scarce two page address by George Cruikshank in part four, complaining of Mr. Kidd the publisher. The second plate in part five is in the second state with the bag forming the coachman's head having the letters GOLD instead of OGDL. A couple of wrappers substituted, a few wrappers lightly soiled, but overall a magnificent copy of the extremely rare 'colored' parts issue. Chemised in a full olive green morocco pull-off case. "The first six numbers with a printed title, which was not issued with the parts, were published on December 1st, 1834 in cloth gilt. It consisted of twenty-four plates and an engraved title in addition to the printed title, which has a design upon it similar to that upon the wrappers of the parts." (Albert M. Cohn. George Cruikshank. A Catalogue Raisonné).Looking at the second plate in part five "The Worship of Wealth" we see George Cruikshank attacking the British public's growing appetite for money, wealth and materialism. Riding in the ornate carriage is a grotesque effigy made from stuffed money-bags ; around it are crowds of people bowing in deference, as they would before Royalty. "Behold 'when Mammon walks or rides or Stirs,Down bend the willing slaves --- the Curs!Hath Mammon half a Million?!! - hath he more?!!!The Salves not only Worship! but adore"Cohn, 181

        Only days after his inauguration as Vice President, Martin Van Buren writes on Congress' response to South Carolina's nullifiers: "Every eye is directed toward S Carolina Her delegation went off in a great rage in consequence of the passage of the enforcement Bill by so unprecedented a majority Her course is not certain but my impression is that she will revoke her ordinance but denounce bitterly the enforcement law to possibly nullify it although such madness is not probable "

      Washington, March 9, 1833. 9.75" x 8". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""M Van Buren"" as Vice President, 4 pages, front and verso of two conjoined sheets, 9.75"" x 8"", Washington, March 9, 1833 to Benjamin F. Butler (1795-1858) concerning Andrew Jackson's health, the inauguration and the ongoing Nullification crisis. Expected folds, light toning to first page, else very good to fine condition. Van Buren writes in large part: ""I am ashamed of myself for not having written to you before but you know how it is with me in this respect and in addition to other obstacles I have for the last two weeks been afflicted with a cold which would have put me to bed but for the exciting scenes through which we have passed. They are all over & well over. Not a single incident has occurred to interfere with the general gratification except the intense ill health of the President on the 4th which caused some inquietude but he went through it well. I passed the principle part of a day in the Senate & witnessed a very general disposition on the part of the rejectors to be civil. Most of them came up to me & shook hands. With Webster that ceremony did not take place until the inauguration ball when it was done under circumstances which John will explain. The health of the President is chiefly restored & affairs here look quite well. Every eye is directed toward S. Carolina. Her delegation went off in a great rage in consequence of the passage of the enforcement Bill by so unprecedented a majority. Her course is not certain but my impression is that she will revoke her ordinance but denounce bitterly the enforcement law to possibly nullify it although such madness is not probable. ln any point of view the crusade has been an unfortunate one to them[?], and in no particular have they perhaps suffered more than on the score of talents, having been too heavily pressed by the peculiarity of their position to allow them to sustain their earnest[?] reputations. I wish Jno Cresswell[?] would hold up a little towards them. Those who would have been most willing to court them if successful will not be foremost to assault them...."" Two days later, contrary to Van Buren's prognostications, the South Carolina Nullification Convention voted to reject Andrew Jackson's Force Bill. This turned out to be merely a symbolic gesture as the same convention accepted the compromise tariff brokered by Henry Clay. Although crisis had been averted, it opened a series of political wounds that would continue to fester for the next two decades. Following Abraham Lincoln's electoral victory in 1860, South Carolina would again occupy the forefront of the ""States' Rights"" movement, voting to secede from the Union ?" provoking yet another political crisis. However, unlike 1833, this crisis erupted into open war as ten other Southern states followed her lead. "

        An Act for incorporating the Members of a Society, commonly called 'The Seaman's Hospital Society',. and their Successors, as therein is mentioned and provided; and for the better enabling and empowering them to carry on their charitable and useful Designs of the same Society INCORPORATION OF THE SEAMAN'S HOSPITAL SOCIETY. EXCEPTIONAL COPY

      [Printed by George Eyre and Andrew Spottiswoode, Printers to the King's most Excellent Majesty 1833] 12pp., sm. folio, with fine woodcut arms of William IV on front page; disbound, an exceptionally crisp, virtually spotless copy ideal for display or presentation. 3 Gulielmi IV. Cap. 9; granted royal assent, 6 May 1833. This is the Act of Parliament formally incorporating the Seaman's Hospital Society, establishing and naming its first governors and prescribing its powers and scope of operations. By way of context its military equivalent, the Royal Hospital at Chelsea, was founded in 1692. The world's first charitable society for the relief of distressed seamen was established in London in March 1821. Initially it aimed to cater for those in the Port of London ('who at that time were very numerous in the Metropolis') and, fittingly for the world's leading maritime nation, did not differentiate on nationality or any other grounds other than disability and hardship. The motivating principles seem to have been partly public gratitude in the aftermath of the Napoleonic wars, in which the Royal Navy in particular had played a fundamental role in achieving victory, and partly increased recognition of the helplessness of private seamen and the strength of their cause. The society was supported entirely by donations, subscriptions and legacies, and by the loan by government of a hospital ship (HMS Dreadnought) moored at Greenwich. In its first twelve years the society provided relief and support to upwards of twenty - three thousand sick and distressed seamen, 'many of whom might otherwise have perished'. With the case clearly made it was time for a more formal and robust body with increased remit and governance; accordingly the Seaman's Hospital Society was given royal assent on 6 May 1833. Its significant extra powers included the rights to possess property, receive bequests, purchase lands and canvass donations; most important of all it was granted 'perpetual succession'. The original HMS Dreadnought continued in use until 1870 when the Admiralty made available at nominal rent the infirmary at Greenwich where the 'Dreadnought' hospital continues to this day. AN ACT OF FUNDAMENTAL IMPORTANCE TO THE WELFARE AND WELL - BEING OF SEAMEN IN BRITAIN, AND A SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT IN BRITISH MARITIME HISTORY. VERY SCARCE, ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("A. B. Fürstenau").

      Hannover, 15. XI. 1833.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Nachdem ich neulich das Vergnügen hatte, Sie zu sehen und zu sprechen, machte ich noch mit einigen Herrn am Tisch in Hildesheim Bekanntschaft, worunter besonders der Herr Dr. Hormeyer mich aufforderte, dort ein Concert zu geben, da indessen ich nach Hannover eilte, mußte ich es ablehnen. Nun trifft es sich, das[s] ich hier erst am Sonnabend den 23. d. M. mein Concert gebe, wo ich nun die übrige Zeit ganz frey bin, und wohl anwenden möchte, in Hildesheim [ein] Concert zu geben, wenn Sie mein verehrter Freund die Gewogenheit u. Gefälligkeit des [A]rrangements dazu übernehmen zu wollen [...]". - Anton Bernhard Fürstenau trat mit sieben Jahren erstmals bei einem Hofkonzert in Oldenburg auf, begleitete seinen Vater auf Kunstreisen nach Kopenhagen und St. Petersburg, wurde 1804 Mitglied der oldenburgischen Hofkapelle und war seit 1815 mit Carl Maria von Weber befreundet. "1817 spielte Fürstenau im Städtischen Orchester in Frankfurt und wurde von Johannes Vollweiler in Komposition unterwiesen. 1818 ging er wieder auf Reisen, war in Holland und Süddeutschland tätig und wurde 1820 erster Flötist in der Hofkapelle in Dresden. 1826 begleitete er Weber auf dessen letzter Reise nach Paris und London. F. unterrichtete zahlreiche Schüler und war in seiner Zeit ein großer Flötenvirtuose. Er schrieb 147 Flötenkompositionen, darunter zwölf Konzerte" (DBE).

        Coloured Views on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway,

      1833. The Most Complete Issue With Sixteen Hand-Colored Aquatint Plates[BURY, T. T., Illustrator]. Coloured Views on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, With Plates of the Coaches, Machines, &c. from drawings made on the spot by Mr. T. T. Bury. With descriptive particulars, serving as a guide to travellers on the railway. London: Ackermann & Co., 1833. Third edition, with the additional three folding plates and the title to the first edition bound in. Large quarto (13 1/4 x 10 7/8 inches; 336 x 268 mm.). [iv], 8 pp. Sixteen hand-colored aquatint plates (13 by S.G. Hughes or H.Pyall after T.T. Bury, three folding by S.G. Hughes [2 after I. Shaw, one unsigned]), extra-illustrated with a cancel title from 1831 issue. Text watermarked 1829-1832; plates 1831-1833. Folding plates with folds reinforced on verso with linen (as issued), second folding plate with small tear (just touching image) invisibly repaired.Contemporary green paper-covered boards ruled in gilt, the upper cover with a contemporary red straight-grained morocco label, lettered and tooled in gilt. Expertly re-backed and re-cornered in quarter red straight-grain morocco ruled in gilt. Smooth spine decoratively stamped in gilt, original gray/brown paper printed wrappers to the 1831 first edition bound in. A spectacular copy of the most complete edition of this fine work. Housed in a green cloth clamshell case with red leather lettering label on spine.An eye-witness account of travel on the world's second practical railway line, with plates after Bury "an outstanding architectural designer" (Abbey) and a detailed report of the difficulties overcome during the railways construction.?"A later edition with the plates re-engraved [many of them with significant changes] was issued in 1833… Copies occur with 2 extra folding coloured aquatint plates by I. Shaw, engraved by S.G. Hughes viz. "A Train of First and Second Class Carriages with the Mail" and "Trains of Waggons with Goods, Cattle &c… This [edition] may have a further additional [folding] plate "Bridge on the line of St. Helen's and Runcorn Gap Railway." (Tooley). ?"This book was first published with six plates in 1831. It proved popular, and other editions followed…This classic record of the beginnings of the railway age was also one of the last significant books illustrated with aquatints. Lithography was already sweeping the field for pictorial records of this kind?" (Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England).Thomas Bury, 'a pupil of Augustus Pugin, was an outstanding architectural designer, and engaged with Pugin, in designing the details of the Houses of Parliament. He was the artist responsible for the best-known views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. He Published as hand-colored aquatints in paper covers by Ackermann in February 1831 [titled Six Coloured Views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, with a plate of the coaches, machines, &c], Bury's work went through many editions covering a period of about three years. There were seven views in the first edition and thirteen in the second. A reissue appeared in 1832 followed by Spanish and French editions, while the prints were reproduced separately in France and Germany. After re-engraving, new editions appeared in England in 1833 and 1834. Ackermann clearly realized the potential of the British and European markets for railway prints as no other work passed through so many editions' (Rees). The present copy includes the first state of one of the two folding plates of carriages and engines: before canopies were added to the lower set of carriages. The view of the interior of the Wapping to Edge Hill tunnel is in a later state (possibly the fifth) dated 1833 and after the removal of the steaming train (the train was a mistake as no train under steam was allowed in the tunnel).The inspiration for the project to build the railway was the success of the Stockton to Darlington rail line and the urgent commercial need for faster links between the docks of Liverpool and the factories of Manchester ("goods have been known to make the transit from New York to Liverpool in less time than from the latter town to Manchester.") The route was proposed in 1824 and, under the direction of George Stephenson and with parliament's blessing, the immense work was completed by 1830: the line being opened to the public on the 15th September of that year. Despite the tragic death of the Liverpool member of parliament Mr. Huskisson (the first fatality attributable to the Railways) and the huge cost of the work (£740,000 by 1830), the railway was an immediate popular and financial success. Speeds in excess of 30 m.p.h. were recorded for the 31 mile journey and as the author predicted in the final paragraph "The success of this experiment... has been... so complete, as to justify the anticipation of the speedy introduction of railways throughout the country..." The plates include three plates of the train and rolling stock employed on the railway, and 13 others of views of the railway in operation.Abbey Life 400; Gareth Rees Early Railway Prints (1980) p.21 and see plates 5-9 & 13; Tooley 121.
