        Constitucion de la Republica de Chile jurada y promulgada el 25 de mayo de 1833.

      (Santiago de Chile), Imprenta de la Opinion, (1833). - Title page within typographical border, touched at foot. (1 l.), 48 pp., (1 l.). 4? (18 x 12.3 cm.), disbound. Small hole on pp. 17-18 touching 5 letters. A few marginal annotations. Overall in good condition. Small stamp on title-page ("Santiago") above an erasure. ---- FIRST EDITION [?] of the 1833 constitution. We have compared this to another quarto edition which is a very close but different setting of type to the present one. Our reason for assigning it priority over two other editions we have seen is that on the verso of the final leaf the word "sesiones" stands alone on the final line as a "widow". In the other two editions the word "sus" has been moved from the end of the penultimate line to the ultimate one, thus eliminating the widow, as any good typographer would have known to do.Promulgated under the Portales regime, this conservative document gave a very powerful executive all the means necessary to suppress disorder and guarantee stability, but allowed for only a weak legislative branch and a judicial arm appointed by the executive. The Constitution of 1833 remained Chile's governing document until 1925.---- BriseÒo I, 75. Palau 59731. See Simon Collier, @Ideas and Politics of Chilean Independence 1808-1833 pp. 435-56.

        Manuscript - Signed Letters of British Chief Justice, Robert Sandilands - Plantation Owner & Philanthropist of Nassau - Built First 4-mile Transporation Road

      Nassau, 1833. New Providence Island [Nassau], August 1833 - May 1834. Four (4) manuscript signed letters from Mr. (and Mrs.) Sandilands, British Chief Justice, plantation owner, philanthropist and abolitionist, who essentially founded the Fox Hill region, addressed to Mr. Bosanquet, their banker in London, and dealing with the purchase of a mansion and a phaeton carriage which is of historical significance. Together with one (1) small manuscript note to Mr. Sandilands trustees regarding freight and insurance for the carriage shipped to the island in November 1833. 8vo. Double leafs measuring approximately 18 x 22 cm, with integral addresses, red wax seals, and 'Bahamas' mailing stamps. Mild age-toning, some creasing, otherwise in very good condition, a fascinating piece of Nassau's foundational history unfolding firsthand. Mr. Sandilands and his wife Mary had arrived in the Bahamas in 1830, only 3 years before these letters were written. Robert Sandilands is best remembered for taking a leading role at the time of abolition by offering, in 1840, small parcels of his 1200 acres of land in the Fox Hill district to freed slaves, for £10 or the equivalent in labour, encouraging them to "work hard, be loyal, and grateful for their boon." His scheme formed a free-slave village settlement, originally called Creek Village. Within it he created a small "village square" centered around an ancient cotton silk tree. In 1849 the recipients of the lots renamed the town Sandilands Village after their benefactor. His first land purchase, 60 acres, part of his estate later to be subdivided into 100 lots, is described in two of the present letters, an investment and vision he began investing into in 1833. [In August 1833, the Abolition of Slavery Act became law. In his final will and testament, Sandilands stated his wish that all of his slaves be freed. In gratitude, most or all took his name as their surname; as former slaves, none of them had surnames.] Of utmost importance in these letters is the purchase of a phaeton carriage with a top for protection from the blazing sun. Eventually, after some hardship and a long wait, a carriage would be shipped to Providence Island from London. And, with a £100 colony grant Mr. Sandilands built a four mile carriage road through his private property, and through Creek Village to the main Eastern road, creating better communication between Nassau and the southern fishing grounds, and also facilitating transport between the Village and the Nassau Market. It is now called Fox Hill Road. The carriage so tenaciously pursued and finally acquired, as described in these letters, was the cornerstone for early roadworks and proper transport in the Fox Hill district. Over and above the purchase of property and a carriage, these letters reveal the couple's financial struggles upon settling in the Bahamas, the length of time it took to deal with colonial matters from overseas, and their determination for success, Fort Montagu, which was built in 1741 and had played an important role in the American War of Independence, is also mentioned. Excerpts from the letters: 5 August 1833. Written by Robert Sandilands: "... I feel assured of your willingness on this account to undertake my commission. I desire above all things to have immediately sent out for Mary a small four wheeled Pony Phaeton with a top - if such a thing can be procurred... will not much exceed the sum of £40... [Mrs. Mary Sandiland adds to the letter as well]" Nassau, New Providence, 15 September 1833. Written by Robert Sandilands: "... I have likely made a purchase of an old mansion... 60 acres of ground about 2 miles from the town of Nassau. I am to pay 1000 dollars for it.... I shall have [this?] to Messrs. Coutt by next [month?]..." 31 March 1834. Written by Robert Sandilands: "There is only time to write you a very few lines by a merchant vessel on the point of sailing for England.... it has come to our knowledge that the vessel by which our Phaeton was shipped (the Jersey) has been lost on the coast of England... Quite the contrary an account of the Phaeton being without a head, a want which under our sultry sun nearly rendered it useless. I am most anxious to have our out as soon as possible..." Postmarked 6 May 1834. Written by Mary Sandilands "I am much concerned at having done anything irregular in the way of drawing money, but Mr. Sandilands told me that the Bill had nothing to do with my account... You have of course by this time received the £50 for him, 20 I trust that I have not overdrawn. I have signed two bills for £30 each, which with the £10 for the carriage... makes 70... Money concerns are the very diable & I really have not one hours enjoyment of life in consequence... the constant demand for ready money and the irregularity of the colonial payments, make some arrears that are due extremely annoying... We are living within our income... ...the purchase Mr. Sandilands has made is decidedly an advantage therefore do not turn a deaf ear... the Montagu House should be sold & part of the money & part of the money be appropriated towards paying for it. There cannot be a worse investment for that money than the present one, the house is I believe unlet and of course getting wore out of repair.... ... the calculation of our years expenses which are £100 within our income, the patience of people out here would be exhausted before a sufficient sum was accumulated to pay them all out of such limited savings... I should have £15 more a year to spend! ... One word about the little carriage - It is now certain that the Jersey is lost. I hope it will not make a very big difference in price. There are at the... all sorts of carriages..." End Excerpts. The recipient of these letters is James Whatman Bosanquet (1804-1877), an English banker, who at the age of 18 entered his father's bank, Bosanquet, Salt, & Co., and who in due course became a partner. Mr. Robert Sandilands and his wife Mary had arrived in the Bahamas in 1830. In the same year, he was appointed to the Executive Council. By the Votes of The Bahamas Assembly 1840, Mr. Sandilands became a judge in the General Court. In 1841, he was appointed Assistant Justice. After emancipation, Judge Sandilands granted portions of his land in Fox Hill to the former slaves in the area so they might use it for farming. The payments for these grants were either made by labour or the profits earned from the sale of vegetables. Mr. Sandilands considered the Africans residing in the village to be a "fine body of industrious and content people... upon whose labour one can always depend... for the wage of one shilling per day". The Africans called the settlement `Sandilands Village' however the name was not officially instituted until 1849. With a £100 colony grant Mr. Sandilands built a four mile carriage road through his private property, leading through Creek Settlement to the main Eastern road, in order to open proper communication between Nassau and the fishing grounds on the south side of the island, and also to facilitate transport between Sandilands Village and the Nassau Market. By 1888 Sandilands Village had six hundred inhabitants and was prospering. In 1845 Sandilands gave a further portion of his land for the establishment of a school for the children of freed slaves. Sandilands Primary school remains today. A Phaeton (also Phaéton) is a form of sporty open carriage popular in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. Drawn by one or two horses, a phaeton typically featured a minimal body very lightly sprung atop four extravagantly large wheels.. Very Good.

        PRIMERA SECRETARIA DE ESTADO. DEPARTMENTO DEL INTERIOR. EL EXMO. SR. PRESIDENTE...LA SECULARIZACION DE LAS MISIONES DE LA ALTA Y BAJA CALIFORNIA

      Mexico, 1833. Light wrinkling. Near fine. In a half morocco and cloth folding box, spine gilt. An important broadside, announcing the secularization of the missions in California. Santa Anna, president of the Republic of Mexico, announces that the government will adopt all measures to make effective the secularization of the missions of Alta and Baja California, and to promote the colonization of the mission lands. Over the decades the missions, first established in 1769, had accumulated a great deal of land and wealth. The dispossession of the Church and the dissolution of the missions were critical events in the history of California, overthrowing the agrarian economy built up by the Church in the preceding half century. This broadside is a primary document in the unraveling of the power and influence of the missions, and is a fundamental document for the history of California. OCLC locates only four copies of this decree, all in California institutions.

        Embroidered Religious Sampler

      1833 - CHARDAVOYNE, Rachel Sebring. Embroidered Religious Sampler. New York: 1833. Original needle-worked linen square (16 by 17-1/2 inches), framed. Entire piece measures 17-1/2 by 19 inches. $2600.Intricate signed and dated needlework by a 13-year-old New Yorker, beginning “Jesus permit thy gracious name to stand, as the first effort of an infant hand.” Beautifully framed.Originally, young girls made samplers as a way of learning the embroidery techniques used in the repair of household linens. The significance of embroidery and stitch work in the centuries that followed changed from utilitarian to decorativeâ€" practiced by royalty, as well as ordinary school children. “By the 18th and 19th centuries, samplers were used less for sewing practice and more for ornamentation… They were created to be displayed and to showcase the sewer’s artistic needlework skills… Girls were encouraged to decorate their samplers with handsome borders, within which they would also create flowers, leaves, vases, and baskets… The early 1800s were glory years for samplers. Evidence of the influence of Federal architecture and design can be seen in the draperies and urns that decorated many samplers from this period” (Collectors Weekly). In 1833, 13-year-old Rachel Chardavoyne of New York City created this wonderful sampler, featuring a religious poem, surrounded by lovely stitched floral motifs in green, blue, brown and yellow threads. Two small open tears to left-hand margin with minor loss (not affecting needle work), a few tiny spots. Extremely good condition. Beautifully framed. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        AUSTALIA / NEW ZEALAND / OCEANIA: CARTE DE LA PARTIE DE L'OCÉAN PACIFIQUE: PARCOURUE PAR LA CORVETTE L'ASTROLABE DRESSÉE PAR M.M. D'URVILLE ET LOTTIN 1833.

      - This fine, large-format sea chart features the southwestern Pacific Ocean, embracing all of Australia, New Zealand and most of Indonesia. It extends as far north as Manila, Philippines, as far west as Singapore and as far east as Tahiti. It reflects the best knowledge of the region in the wake of the first voyage of the Astrolabe, commanded by the eminent French explorer and scientist Jules Sébastien César Dumont D’Urville, from 1826 to 1829. The tracks of the Astrolabe, marked with its daily progress, appear throughout the map. The map shows that while the general outline of the major land masses had been by that time established, there were still blank spaces or shown with conjectural coastlines along the coasts of Australia, while much of New Guinea remained a complete enigma. The map shows that during this expedition, Dumont D’Urville conducted especially important mapping of New Zealand, Fiji, the Caroline Islands and the northern coast of New Guinea. The present chart appeared within the atlas of the 5 volume official record of the recording the voyage, Voyage de la corvette l'Astrolabe execute pendant les annees 1826-27-28-29, which contained 45 maps, published in Paris by J. Tastu in 1833. Dumont D’Urville: The Last Great Maritime Explorer Jules Sébastien César Dumont D'Urville (1790 – 1842) was a daring and intrepid mariner and one of the most consequential figures in the exploration of the Pacific, although he often does not receive the credit he deserves, owing in part to the his difficult personality, which made him unpopular in many circles. Dumont d’Urville cut his teeth while surveying the Mediterranean for the French Navy in the wake of the Napoleonic Wars. He became famous for his role in securing the Ancient Greek statue, the ‘Venus de Milo’ for the Louvre. In the generations after James Cook’s voyages to the Pacific, there existed a pan-European fascination with the South Seas. Various nations competed for political dominance over the region and to lay claim to scientific discoveries. However, by the early 1820s, in spite of numerous voyages, much still remained to be discovered. Dumont D’Urville was especially fascinated with the quest and made his first voyage o the South Seas from 1822 to 1825 as the second-in-command to Louis-Isadore Duperry, aboard La Coquille. They explored the coasts of Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea, Chile, the Falklands, amongst many other locales. During this voyage, Dumont D’Urville distinguished himself as a cartographer and botanist. The voyage returned to France with a great collection of natural specimens that were the basis of much important scientific research. Subsequently, Dumont D’Urville was placed in charge of his own voyage of exploration. La Coquille was renamed the Astrolabe and the expedition set out for the South Seas from Toulon in April 1826. The Astrolabe sailed along the South Coast of Australia and extensively mapped parts of New Zealand, before visiting Tonga and Fiji. From July to September 1827, Dumont D’Urville mapped the North Coast of New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, which were still mysterious places, before exploring the Caroline Islands the following spring. Upon the expedition’s return to Marseille in 1829, it was hailed a great success, having filled-in many blanks on the map, yielding fascinating natural specimens. Dumont d’Urville’s account of the voyage was lavishly printed in five volumes, issued between 1832 to 1834, which included the present chart. Dumont D’Urville, who was known for his complex temperament, proceeded to get into sharp disagreements with many important figures in Paris. As a result he was banished for a few years to perform a useless "desk job" in Toulon. However, Dumont D’Urville’s undisputed talents won out and his proposal to lead another exposition aboard the Astrolabe was accepted. While Dumont D’Urville envisaged another voyage to the tropics, Paris had another objectives in mind. Ever since the British mariner J

        WALL MAP OF THE AMERICAS: Carte de l'Amérique, dressée d'après les meilleurs materiaux par F. Fried.1826. Corrigée 1833.

      - A excellent example of a rare 1830s wall map of the Americas, in four unjoined sheets, issued by the venerable Viennese firm of Artaria & Co. This large and attractive wall map embraces all of the Americas and extends from eastern Australia (on the extreme left side), all the way across to Western Europe (on the extreme right side). North and South America are captured from panoptic perspective, with the clean crisp engraving showcasing the continents to a level of detail seldom expressed by such general maps. Published in 1833, the map depicts the Americas during an especially interesting time in their history. Much of Latin America had recently won its independence from Spain (by 1821), while the boundaries in North America postdate the massive changes that occurred in the 1840s. The map is elegantly colour coded to show the domains of various nations and colonial powers. Geographically, the depiction of North America is fairly advanced, being largely based on the groundbreaking maps of Aaron Arrowsmith, but featuring the current situation with respect to international boundaries. The United States-Mexican boundary predates Texas’s declaration of independence (1835), such that Texas, California and the future U.S. Southwest are shown to be part of Mexico. However, Florida is shown to be American territory, having been ceded by Spain in 1819. Further north, the British (Canadian)-American boundary takes into account the line demarcated by the Treaty of Washington (1818), which drew the border from the Lake of the Woods to the Rockies along the 49th Parallel. Interestingly, however, the map seems to favour American claims with respect to the Pacific Northwest (which was a matter yet unresolved), showing the United States to be in possession of not only modern day Oregon and Washington State, but also a large amount of territory jutting further north (into modern British Colombia) following the upper Columbia River. In 1846, this boundary would be demarcated to run along the 49th Parallel. The boundary between Canada and Russian North America (Alaska) follows the line agreed to by the 1825 London Treaty. The depiction of Central and South America’s geography is largely based on Alexander von Humboldt’s epic mapping. As already mentioned, Mexico occupies it maximal historical territorial extent. South America is divided into the old Spanish Viceroyalties that had since become independent. New Granada makes up the territory that became Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela; Peru retained its name; Upper Peru became Bolivia; Chile endured, but with extended boundaries, and the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata became Argentina. Brazil, an autonomous part of Portugal, occupies much of the continent. The map was issued by the firm of Artaria & Co. of Vienna, having been compiled by the geographer Franz Fried, who executed innumerable commissions for the company. Founded in 1770, Artaria was the leading map publisher in the Austrian Empire during the late 18th and throughout the 19th Centuries and one of the most respected European firms. As evinced by the present work, their maps were known for their excellent sourcing and design. The present map is very rare, being an updated version of the 1826 edition of the map. Artaria & Co. published the first edition of the map in 1818 and several subsequent editions at least up to 1841. All editions of the map are very rare, and we have not been able to find any references or sales records relating to the present 1833 edition. Only examples of the 1818 and 1841 editions appear on the OCLC. References: N/A – Rare. Cf. 1818 edition: OCLC: 224206718; 1841 edition: OCLC: 556334853.

        Vooloo-Moloo au Port Jackson

      1833. Handcoloured engraving, 218 x 320 mm. (image size); fine, framed. A lovely acquatint entitled Vooloo-Mooloo (Woolloomooloo) au du Port Jackson is after a drawing by Barthelemy Lauvergne from Laplace's Voyage autour du Monde par les Mers de l'Inde et de la Chine (1833), which depicts their journey through India and China with the objective of reestablishing French influence in the Indo-China area. They stopped in Hobart and Sydney (1831) and took a short break in New Zealand while returning to France.The scene depicts Woolloomooloo bay and Port Jackson beyond and an agricultural setting in the foreground.Barthelemy Lauvergne (1805-1875), a marine painter and naval draughtsman, served on the Favorite under Laplace (1829-1832), as the secretary and the official artist. There are three aquatints that are included in the atlas volume of this voyage account and all are after Lauvergne's drawings. Lauvergne also served on the Astrolabe (1826-1829) as secretary to Dumont d'Urville.

Folio (370 x 270mm). pp. lxxx, 472; pp. (iv), with 1 aquatint frontispiece (view of the Himalayan mountains), 1 handcoloured lithographed plan (of the Botanic Garden of Saharunpore), and 100 (97 handcoloured) lithographed plates, the majority by Vishnuprasad, some by Miss Drake, J. de Carle Sowerby, J.O. Westwood and others. Recent calf, spines in 6 compartments with black gilt lettered label. First and only edition. A fine copy of the first major work on the Himalayan flora. "A pioneering ecological study, with descriptions of the different types of vegetation and notes on the distribution of families and genera in the region" (Rix p. 183).John Forbes Royle (1799-1858) was born at Cawnpore, in India and studied medicine at Edinburgh University. He was surgeon to the East India Company and curator of the Saharunpore botanical gardens. One of the author's interests were the drug plants of the region and on page 240 he recommended the introduction of cinchona (i.e. quinine) to India. Many of the fine plates are by Indian artists such as Vishnuprasad and M. Gaucci. "During the eighteenth century as the Mughal Empire declined, Indian painters formely under Mughal patronage sought work from employees of the Hon. East India Company, many of whom were eager collectors of drawings of Indian plants and animals. Many hundreds of magnificant drawings made by Indian artists during the early part of the nineteenth century under the direction of British botanists such as Royle, Carey, Falconer, Wallich and Roxburg are now in the Kew Herbarium (Blunt & Stearn p. 185).

Le détail du tirage est le suivant : 2 ex. sur peau de vélin ; 4 ex. sur Chine ; 10 ex. sur Hollande ; 24 ex. sur papier de France. Il nous paraît utile et intéressant de reproduire ici la note de l'éditeur : "Cette réimpression copie figurée de la Moralité du mauvais Riche et du Ladre a été faite sur l'exemplaire de la Bibliothèque Royale. Il existe de cette Moralité deux éditions, imprimées en caractères gothiques, à la fin du XVe siècle ou au commencement du XVIe siècle : l'une, petit in-4°, et l'autre, petit in-8°, toutes les deux de seize feuillets. En 1823, M. Pontier publia à Aix une réimpression de cette Moralité ; l'extrême rareté des premières éditions la fit rechercher avec empressement ; mais sous le rapport de l'exécution typographique elle ne peut entrer en comparaison avec les reproductions de ce genre éditées depuis quelques années : si on en fait un examen plus approfondi, on s'aperçoit que l'éditeur n'avait pas à sa disposition les caractères de certaines abréviations fréquemment employées dans les anciens livres, en sorte qu'il a imprimé quidè pour quidem, Abrahà pour Abraham, innovations dont les lecteurs n'ont pas que malgré l'annonce d'une scrupuleuse exactitude, il serait facile d'indiquer un certain nombre de fautes qui ne devraient point exister si l'éditeur s'était appliqué, comme il le dit, à imiter exactement l'original jusques dans les fautes. C'est ce dont les lecteurs pourront se convaincre en comparant cette copie figurée avec la réimpression de M. Pontier. Nous avons pensé que cette dernière n'étant pas en harmonie avec les réimpressions modernes, cette Moralité mieux reproduite trouverait encore faveur auprès des bibliophiles. S [pour Dilvestre]." Cette réimpression a très petit nombre, de grande qualité, a été faite aux frais du Prince d'Essling, célèbre bibliophile. (Cf. Brunet, Manuel du libraire et de l'amateur de livres, etc.) Si les deux éditions ancienns de la fin du XVe siècle ou du début du XVIe siècle sont rarissimes (pour ne pas dire inaccessibles), cette belle réimpression à 40 exemplaires seulement, ne l'est pas moins.

        THE PERSONAL NARRATIVE OF JAMES O PATTIE, OF KENTUCKY, DURING AN EXPEDITION FROM ST LOUIS, THROUGH THE VAST REGIONS BETWEEN THAT PLACE AND THE PACIFIC OCEAN, AND THENCE BACK THROUGH THE CITY OF MEXICO TO VERA CRUZ

      Cincinnati, 1833. Contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked preserving original gilt spine, leather label. Corners worn, boards lightly scuffed. Later catalogue description on rear pastedown. Some offsetting from plates. Lightly foxed. A good, solid copy. The second edition of Pattie's narrative, differing from the 1831 edition only in the reprinted titlepage. The sheets in each edition are from the same printing. The editor and virtual author, Cincinnati literary lion Timothy Flint, achieved such a poor sale of the original edition that he canceled the titlepage and reissued the work with the 1833 date to make it seem current. The Pattie account is one of the classics of Western Americana. The author and his father were engaged in the fur trade in the Southwest in the 1820s. In 1828 they went overland to California, only the second American group to make the trip by a southern route (the first was Jedediah Smith in 1826) and the first to publish an account of their journey. The party experienced difficulty and dangers in New Mexico, Arizona, and California, where they were tossed in jail by Mexican authorities and the elder Pattie died. The son was released after he aided in vaccinating people during a smallpox epidemic. A major work of Californiana and Western Americana.

        Ernst HILDEBRAND (1833 Falkenberg- Berlin 1924) Auferstehung des Lazarus,Gouache

      - Ernst HILDEBRAND (1833 Falkenberg- Berlin 1924) Auferstehung des Lazarus, Gouache -- Technik: -- Gouache auf Karton, unten rechts signiert: "E. Hildebrand. ". -- Maße: -- 28,2 x 46,7 cm -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand, Malkarton unbeschnitten, mit Künstermarkierungen. -- Beschreibung: -- Die Parabel von der Auferstehung des Lazarus war als Hinweis auf die Auferstehung Christi in der frühchristlichenKunst ein häufiges Thema der Malerei. Historienmaler wie Ernst Hildebrand haben zur ihrer Wiederentdeckung im 19. Jahrhundert beigetragen. Laut Johannesevangelium lag der Leichnam des Lazarus schon vier Tage im Höhlengrab, als seine Schwestern Marthaund Maria bei Jesus seinen Tod beklagten. Er ließ den Stein vom Grabeingang entfernen und erweckte Lazarus mit denWorten "Lazarus, kommt heraus" zum Leben. Dieser Moment wird bei Hildebrand gezeigt. Christus steht im Zentrumder Komposition mit in Richtung des Lazarus ausgestreckten Armen. Sein blaurotes Gewand bildet einen starkenfarbigen Akzent im Kontrast zu den weißen Grabtüchern des Lazarus. Es ist eine kompositorische Maßnahme, dieversinnbildlicht, woher das wiedergekehrte Leben stammt. Es ist eine unbegreifliche Szene, deren Dramatik sich in den Gesichtern der Zuschauer spiegelt: Angst, Freude undUngläubigkeit kommen hier zum Ausdruck und werden noch durch die heftige Gestik betont. Insgesamt jedoch lässtder Künstler lieber die klaren, hellen Farben sprechen. In Verbindung mit der dargestellten Szene werden sie zum Träger der Hoffnung. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        "The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, in the common version. With amendments of the language, by Noah Webster."

      New Haven: Durrie & Peck. 1833. "First edition, one volume expanded to 2, 8vo, pp. xvi, 907; a very nice copy in contemporary quarter tan calf over marbled boards, without the errata slip which was not in all copies. Another edition appeared in 16mo 1841, and the N.T. was issued separately in 1839 and 1841. Of particular interest is the 15-page introduction in which Webster explains ""the principal alterations in the language … made in this edition."" Webster was long a critic of the translation of certain passages in the Bible, and had written about them as early as 1784 in his first Grammar. ""Unfortunately for Webster,"" Skeel writes, ""the Christian world's reaction seems on the whole to have been that of ""F.B.P.,"" who wrote on the flyleaf of his copy of Webster's edition, ""Give[n] me by Aunt N., Octy. 17, 1859. Sent to her for missionaries' use evidently wrongly. They don't want the word of Webster, but the Word of God."" Hills, 826; Skeel 784."

        Voyage de la Corvette l'Astrolabe exécuté par ordre du Roi pendant les années 1826, 1827, 1828, 1829, sous le commandement de M.J. Dumont d'Urville: ATLAS ZOOLOGIQUE,

      - par J.C.R. Quoy et J.P. Gaimard. Paris, J. Tastu, 1833. Large-folio (525 x 345mm). With 192 (185 fine colour-printed and beautifully hand-finished) engraved plates. In period style half calf, richly gilt decorated spine with 2 gilt lettered black labels. The complete zoological atlas of this famous French expedition to the Pacific. Dumont d'Urville made 3 major voyages to the Pacific. 'His first as second-in-command to Louis Isidore Duperrey, was on the Coquille in 1822-1825. His two voyages in command, in 1826-1829 and 1837-1840, were the zenith of French maritime exploration, colonial ambition and scientific endeavour. The natural history specimens and collections from the Dumont d'Urville voyages were destined for the largest cabinet of curiosities in Europe - the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. Here, the business of exploration had long been systematised and institutionalised. The specimens were elaborately worked up by professional scientific illustrators. As France's last great scientific voyage of discovery by sail, Dumont d'Urville's voyages mark the end of an era of heroic exploration. Over the course of his three long voyages, Dumont d'Urville visited more of the Pacific and Oceania than Cook or Bougainville or any other of his three predecessors' (Hunt, Terry & Thomas, Lure of the Southern Seas, the voyages of Dumont d'Urville 1826-1840 pp. 5 & 13, 61).The plates, by the most famous artists of the period such as Prêtre, Prevost and Oudart, are of an unsurpassed beauty, colour-printed and superbly handfinished, a most laborious and costly process. The largest section is the one on shells containing 95 plates. The section on mammals contains 28 (5 plain) plates, birds 31 plates, fishes 12 plates and zoophytes 26 plates."France continued to provide facilities at sea for nature study. Between 1826 and 1829 Quoy and Gaimard were again taken around the globe, this time in the 'Astrolabe', stopping frequently to observe and collect animals. The result of their molluscan studies on this voyage were published in a magnificent report containing many accurate observations and descriptions on many new species. The illustrations of living molluscs are so beautiful and so true to life that they are frequently reproduced in modern works" (Dance. History of Shell Collecting p. 134). The ornithological part chiefly consists of descriptions of new species of birds from New Guinea, New Zealand, Celebes, Australia and other points reached on the voyage. Title with small paper repair at right upper corner. A small number of plates with varying foxing as is common with this work.B.M. (Nat. Hist.)II, 603; Nissen ZBI, 1199. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, in the common version. With amendments of the language, by Noah Webster.

      Durrie & Peck, New Haven 1833 - "First edition, one volume expanded to 2, 8vo, pp. xvi, 907; a very nice copy in contemporary quarter tan calf over marbled boards, without the errata slip which was not in all copies. Another edition appeared in 16mo 1841, and the N.T. was issued separately in 1839 and 1841. Of particular interest is the 15-page introduction in which Webster explains "the principal alterations in the language made in this edition." Webster was long a critic of the translation of certain passages in the Bible, and had written about them as early as 1784 in his first Grammar. "Unfortunately for Webster," Skeel writes, "the Christian world's reaction seems on the whole to have been that of "F.B.P.," who wrote on the flyleaf of his copy of Webster's edition, "Give[n] me by Aunt N., Octy. 17, 1859. Sent to her for missionaries' use evidently wrongly. They don't want the word of Webster, but the Word of God." Hills, 826; Skeel 784." [Attributes: First Edition]

        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. Large quarto (13 5/16 x 11 inches; 339 x 279 mm.). [ii], 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]). Text watermarked 1831-1832; plates watermarked 1832. Folding plates with folds reinforced on verso with linen (as issued), third folding plate with small marginal tear at top (just touching image) invisibly repaired.Bound ca. 1840 by Thomas Cross of Holborn Hill, London{stamp-signed "Cross, Binders to the King" on front paste-down) in three-quarter crimson straight-grain morocco over pink cloth boards, ruled in gilt. Front cover with gilt bordered red morocco label lettered in gilt. Spine with two raised bands, lettered in gilt. Bookplate of Joel Spitz on front paste-down. Housed in a fleece-lined red cloth slipcase.A wonderful copy of the most complete edition of this fine work. Provenance: purchased from Button, 15 June 1946. 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, of which this is the msot complete. 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 (1834 edition); Tooley, 121; Ray, 45; Gareth Rees Early Railway Prints (1980) p.21 and see plates 5-9 & 13.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Köthen, 28. I. 1833. - 2 S. 8vo. Doppelblatt. Großer und inhaltsreicher Brief an seinen Verleger Johann Christoph Arnold (1763-1847) in Dresden: „[ ] Endlich bin ich heute im Stande, Ihnen den zweiten Teil der neueren Arzneimittellehre, dritter Auflage zu überschicken. Unmöglich wäre mir das auch jezt noch gewesen, des seit Jahr und Tag sich immer noch mehrenden Zulaufs von Kranken wegen, wenn ich nicht einen sehr braven Gehülfen zur Homöopathischen Praxis seit 1/2 Jahres verlangt hätte - aber auch dieser reicht nun fast nicht mehr zu, so thätig er auch ist. Ich werde sehen, ob ich nach Ihren Wunsche die fünfte Auflage des Organons zu Stande bringen kann. Ist es möglich, so soll es bald geschehen. Aber zu einem fünften Theile der chronischen Krankheiten gehört gar zu viel, wenns was rechtschaffens seyn soll; ich weiß nicht, ob ich dießen noch vor meinem Ende werkstellig machen kann. Aber zu Materialien für den fünften Theil der chron. Krankheiten könnte Rath werden, wenn Sie konveniren. Leichter würde mirs werden, die 4 Bände chron. Krankheiten zu einer zweiten Auflage zu bringen, in welcher Sie doppelt so stark würden, wenigstens die drei lezten Bände; so sehr vermehrt sind darin die Arzneien an Symptomen von mir geworden. Doch das überlasse ich Ihnen alles, und will nur wünschen, daß Gott Lebens Gesundheit und Muße dazu verleihe. Sie richten sich doch gefälligst so ein, daß Sie mir das Honorar gleich nach dem Abdrucke dieses zweiten Theils übersenden können? Leben Sie wohl [ ] Ich lasse Herrn Dr. Trinks bitten, doch ja in dieser friwolen neueren Zeit sich durch vorzügliche Feinheit in der homöopathischen Praxis vor Andrem auszuzeichnen auch lasse ich mich bei ihm für das schöne Symptom bedanken, was ich gehörigen Orts eingeschaltet habe. [ ]"– Arnold verlegte alle zu Hahnemanns Lebzeiten herausgegebenen Auflagen des „Organon" (1810-1833); außerdem die erste bis dritte Auflage der „Reinen Arzneimittellehre" wie auch die erste und zweite Auflage der „Chronischen Krankheiten". - Sehr selten.
