        A New and Popular History of England

      Birmingham - W. Emans, 1833 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. An extensive history of England. A brown cloth hardback with blindstamped boards and gilt lettering on the spine. First edition. Scarce. Campbell's very scarce compilation from Hume and Smollett. David Hume was a Scottish philosopher, economist, historian and an important figure in Western philosophy and the Scottish Enlightenment. Together with John Locke, George Berkeley, and a handful of others, Hume is one of the principal early philosophers of empiricism. He first gained recognition and respect as an historian, but academic interest in Hume's work has in recent years centred on his philosophical writing. His History of England was the standard work on English history for many years, until Macaulay's The History of England from the Accession of James the Second. Tobias George Smollett (1721 - 1771) was a Scottish author, best known for his picaresque novels, such as The Adventures of Roderick Random and The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle. His A Complete History of England, which he regarded as his major work, took him from 1757 to 1765. Condition: The binding is secure. There is some wear to the extremities, including bumping, fraying and fading. Internally the pages are generally clean with the occasional handling mark and some spotting to the first and last few pages. Overall the condition is good..

        "Rodensteins Auszug".

      . Radierung, 1833, auf Bütten. 13,3:12,2 cm. Vorzüglicher, vollrandiger, doch wie immer späterer Abzug. Literatur: Nicht bei Stoll; Ausst. Katalog: Ludwig Emil Grimm, 1790-1863. Maler - Zeichner - Radierer. Kassel/Hanau 1985, Nr. 71, Abb. S. 96. Zu dieser Radierung heißt es auf S. 82 (op. cit.): "Zu den Überraschungen in Grimms Radierwerk gehört das hochromantische, dramatisch bewegte Blatt "Rodensteins Auszug", das zwar "1818 fec." bezeichnet ist, dessen unmittelbare, seitenverkehrte Vorzeichnung aber die Jahreszahl 1833 trägt. Die fertig radierte Platte wurde von Grimm niemals veröffentlicht, die Abzüge sind neueren Datums. Die frühere Jahreszahl 1818 bezieht sich auf die Vollendung der "Deutschen Sagen" von Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm, die in zwei Bänden 1816 bzw. 1818 erschienen, Ludwig Emil Grimm gewidmet. Vermutlich war die Radierung als Titelblatt einer neuen Ausgabe gedacht. Die dargestellte Sage ist dem 1. Band entnommen. Der letzte, einst reiche Herr von Rodenstein auf Burg Schellerts im Odenwald zieht, wenn immer ein Krieg bevorsteht, wie auf der Flucht, um seine Habe zu retten, mit seinem Gesinde, von Trompetern begleitet, nach dem Rodenstein. Die beiden phantastischen Bäume, deren Äste Tier- und Menschengestalt anzunehmen scheinen, wurden aus den dürren Ästen der Willingshäuser Eiche entwickelt. Der hell gelassene, unschattierte Gespensterzug wird höchst wirkungsvoll zwischen die dunkle Vordergrundkulisse am linken Bildrand und das ebenso dunkle Baummassiv des Mittelgrundes gesetzt. Grell leuchtet die Baumkontur im Gegenlicht auf, überblendet von der Helligkeit des Hintergrundes, dessen Nebelschwaden die Ruine auf dem Burgberg umwallen.". Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Kunstakademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834). Unterbrechung des Studiums 1814 durch Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen. Mit Georg Brentano reiste er im Frühjahr 1816 nach Italien, wo er zwei Monate blieb. 1817 kehrte er nach Kassel zurück. 1824 reiste Grimm zum ersten Mal nach Willingshausen und wurde zum Mitbegründer der Willingshäuser Malerkolonie, eine der ersten Malerkolonien Deutschlands. 1832 wurde er an die Kasseler Kunstakademie als Lehrer berufen.

        Voyage de découvertes autour du monde et à la recherche de La Pérouse

      Paris: Librairie Encyclopédique de Roret, 1832-, 1833. Ten octavo text volumes bound as five, and folio atlas with a portrait of Dumont d'Urville and 20 maps and plates (six coloured); some browning and foxing of the text (as sometimes found with this paper stock), also affecting a few plates; a good set in a recent French period style quarter navy polished calf, spines lettered numbered and banded in gilt. This is a notably scarce version of the official account of Dumont d'Urville's first voyage, publishing the voyage narrative and a selection of the fine lithographic plates for a popular audience.The Astrolabe was renamed for this voyage in honour of La Pérouse's lost ship; it had previously sailed as the Coquille in Duperrey's expedition in the early 1820s, with Dumont d'Urville serving as second-in-command. The expedition visited Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific in 1826-29; it was a major scientific undertaking and a large number of natural history specimens were collected returned to France. Likewise, the haul of geographical and ethnological information was considerable. The full publication of the voyage was extensive, numbering some 13 text volumes accompanied by five folio atlas volumes. Exclusive and expensive, the official account was beyond the means of most readers, hence the desire for an abridged and accessible edition. This version was published to fill that gap. It includes as narrative text the Historique section of the full voyage account, though the title has been changed to include the words "et à la recherche de La Pérouse", and has a selection of eight maps and 12 plates as a separately bound atlas volume. The maps are notable as some of the finest ever produced of the Pacific, and include two of New Zealand, New Guinea, Australia, Tonga and Vanikoro.Three of the twelve plates issued with this edition are Australian Aboriginal studies lithographed from drawings by the official artist Louis Sainson. A coloured portrait plate of two Aboriginal men is followed by depictions of two encounters, one at the Georges River and the other at Jervis Bay. Of additional interest are two coloured Maori portrait plates, and further studies of the native inhabitants of New Guinea, Vanikoro and Tikopia.One of the primary objectives of the voyage was to confirm the fate of the ill-fated La Pérouse expedition, a long-standing source of mystery and speculation. The wreck of La Pérouse's Astrolabe had been reported a few years previously by Peter Dillon, the South Seas trader, suggesting that the island of Vanikoro (present day Solomons) was the French explorer's final resting place. Dumont d'Urville's expedition confirmed this, and erected a monument to La Pérouse and his men upon the island (the ceremony is memorialised in a fine lithographed plate included in the atlas to this edition).Despite the fact that this was intended to be a popular edition it is surprisingly rare on the market and not noted by several standard bibliographies. This edition was only noted for the Ferguson Addenda volume from the set of the text in the State Library of Victoria and from a copy of the atlas volume that appeared (without text) in a Bernard Quaritch catalogue in 1983. McLaren too could cite the atlas only from the Ferguson/Quaritch entry.

        Basil Hall manuscript letter to his wife's mother, Lady Hunter with addition by Margaret Hall

      1833 - QUITE UNUSUAL - BOTH BASIL AND MARGARET HALL HANDWRITING ON ONE DOCUMENT 9-1/2 x 7-1/2 inches. Autograph letter signed. Two pages, Dated (on the Rhine 20th May 1833. Two pages, 4to. With postscript on verso by his wife Margaret, also a writer. To his wife's mother, Lady Hunter. Basil Hall's letter reads: "My dear Lady Hunter, I write merely to report of myself and to mention that here we are safe and sound and all happy and merry with our journey. We came here on Sat. Eve. And passed yesterday chiefly with Mrs. Hoover and her family. Mr H. Is in England. In the evening Mr. Schlegel and other intelligent oxalises of both sexes came to Mrs. Homers. This day we go to Coblentz by the Steam Boat and then we propose going on just as before. The weather is delightful still. We have a famous thunderstorm on Sat. Eve. After we got here which has cooled the air and laid the dust. My journal for the young folks goes merrily - I hope it may amuse hem. Perhaps Mgt [Margaret] might add a line to you. Mr. Dollard of St. Paul's Churchyard is to send a Box to meet me at Geneva and by it you may send any odds and ends. Mgt begs get from Joel Lane a book which Eliza left, called The Ladder of Leaving - and send it to Mr. Dollard. Yours Affecftionately, B. Hall" Margaret Hall adds: 'That is to say you may desire Jane to send the book to Mr. Dollard. We at present plan going on either tomorrow or the following day from Coblentz to Mayence also by Steam Boat, and thence to Frankfurt by land, a distance of only about 20 miles- there we shall stay two or three days and I shall send a large sheet which will by that time be filled. There are two routes from Frankfurt to Munich, one to Heidelberg and Carlsruhe and thence by Stuttgard to Munich, but I think we shall prefer the other by Wuryburg, Nuremburg, Donanwerth and Augsburg - either way we shall get there by the end of the week even in our very leisurely mode of travelling. Eliza's message is a kiss, and that she wishes you would come and see us - Fanny Emily has given me a flower to send to you which you must imagine she has sent. Ever affectionately yours, Margaret Hall. 9 o'clock Monday. You can either forward this to Rose if you have a frank or let her know you have heard from us." From [James John] Audubon and His Journals/The European Journals. 1826-1829: "At precisely six I found myself at No. 16 Hope St. I was shown upstairs, and presented to Lady Mary Clark, who knew both General Wolfe and General Montgomery, a most amiable English lady eighty-two years of age. Many other interesting people were present, and I had the pleasure of taking Mrs. Basil Hall to dinner, and was seated next her mother, Lady Hunter, and almost opposite Lady Mary Clark. I did not feel so uncomfortable as usual; all were so kind, affable, and truly well-bred. At nine the ladies left us, and Captain Basil Hall again attacked me about America, and hundreds of questions were put to me by all, which I answered as plainly and briefly as I could." Basil Hall was a British naval officer from Scotland, a traveller, and an author. Following Basil Hall's retirement from the navy in 1823, Hall was married on 1 March 1825 to Margaret Congalton (d. 1876), the youngest daughter of Sir John Hunter, Consul-General in Spain by his spouse Elizabeth Barbara, sister to Sir William Arbuthnot, 1st Baronet. Margaret Hall is the subject of a 1931 book "Aristocratic Journey. Being the outspoken letters of Mrs. Basil Hall, written during a fourteen months' sojourn in America, 1827-1828" Basil Hall commanded many vessels involved in exploration and scientific and diplomatic missions. From the beginning of his naval career he had been encouraged by his father to keep a journal, which later became the source for a series of books and publications describing his travels. Hall toured the major cities of the eastern and southern states, and his narrative includes comments on education, politics and government, the judicial system, slavery, and manu
