A System of Penal Law, For the State of Louisiana: Consisting of A Code of Crimes and Punishments, A Code of Procedure, A Code of Evidence, A Code of Reform and Prison Discipline, A Book of Definitions. Prepared Under the Authority of a Law of the Said State. To Which are Prefixed a Preliminary Report on the Plan of a Penal Code, and Introductory Reports to the Several Codes Embraced in the System of Penal Law. Philadelphia: James Kay, Jun. & Brother, [1833]. v, 745 pp. Octavo (9" x 5-3/4"). Recent period-style quarter calf over cloth, blind fillets and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Small chips to margins of two leaves with no loss to text. Negligible light foxing in places, interior otherwise clean. Handsome. * Second edition, one of two printings issued in 1833. (The other has the date on the title page.) A comprehensive system of criminal law which, while not adopted in the United States, is still influential today because it is the first complete penal code built on Jeremy Bentham's principles of codification. First published in 1828, Hicks marvels at the scope and clear organization of this code and notes that Bentham, Hugo, Lafayette, Story, Marshall, Madison, Kent and Jefferson considered it "the most comprehensive and enlightened system of criminal law that has ever been presented to the world." A notably humane code, it is important for its advocacy of prevention rather than punishment. Livingston was a senator from Louisiana and later a member of Andrew Jackson's cabinet.

        Hayne Hudjihini Eagle of Delight

      Philadelphia: Key & Biddle, 1833. Hand-coloured lithograph. In excellent condition. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. This very nice example of Hayne Hudjihini's portrait gives a hint of the beauty and charm that captivated President Monroe, Thomas McKenney and members of the Cabinet. She was one of Shaumonekusse's five wives, and was thought to be the most beautiful of all the Native American wives who visited Washington. She was eighteen or nineteen when King painted her portrait. Sadly, she died of the measles soon after returning home. McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk, and Black Hawk. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winnebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. Howes M129; cf. Bennett 79; cf. Field 992; cf.

The majority of the plates are by Louis Auguste de Sainson, the official artist of the expedition and show views, ethnographical portraits and artifacts, scenes of daily life, views of ports and places of anchorage, arms and utensils./This important voyage was one in a great series undertaken by the French government in the late 18th and early 19th centuries for scientific and political purposes. Led by Jules Dumont d'Urville, its intention 'was to gain additional information about the principal groups of islands in the Pacific and to augment the mass of scientific data acquired by Louis Duperrey. The Astrolabe sailed south, around the Cape of Good Hope, and arrived at Port Jackson. Proceeding to New Zealand, its coast, especially the southern part of Cook Strait, was surveyed with great care. Tonga and parts of the Fiji Archipeligo were explored, then New Britain, New Guinea, Amboina, Tasmania, Vanikoro, Guam and Java. The return home was by way of Mauritius and the Cape of Good Hope. Huge amounts of scientific materials were collected and published' (Hill p. 88). The plates, apart from a very few with some foxing, are exceptionally clean.//B.M. (Nat. Hist.)II.

Ehrenberg was unable to regard the "Körner" or "Kugeln" he described as cells, with all that implied because the necessary conceptual resources for that inference had still to be formulated. In Ehrenberg's own terms, however these "granules" did possess a definite theoretical significance: that helped to discredit a notion put forward by others, that the gray matter of the brain was a homogenous, amorphous mass." Clarke & Jacyna, pp.60-61 - "Purynie gave Ehrenberg the credit for first showing the existence of "ganglionic granules (Körner) in the ganglia; this discovery had instigated the investigations by Purkyne himself to ascertain the complete topography of these structures in the nervous system. He was struck by the "Analogie" between Ehrenberg's granules and those found in the cerebral hemispheres as well as in the other parts of the brain, such as the cerebellar cortex where he discovered what was later to be known as "Purkyne's cell."

        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.

An Attempt to Shew the Justice and Expediency of Substituting an Income or Property Tax for the Present Taxes, Or a Part of Them; As Affording the Most Equitable, The Least Injurious, And (Under the Modified Procedure Suggested Therein), The Least Obnoxious Mode of Taxation: Also, The Most Fair, Advantageous, And Effective Plans on Reducing the National Debt. London: J. Hatchard and Son, 1833. xi, [5], 356, 72 pp. Octavo (5-3/4" x 9-1/2"). Contemporary quarter morocco over gray paper boards, paper title label to spine. Light rubbing and a few tiny stains to boards, moderate wear to spine ends and corners, front hinge just starting near foot. Small early bookplate to front pastedown, interior notably fresh. * Only edition. According to McCulloch&#39;s landmark treatise A Treatise on the Principles and Practical Influence of Taxation and the Funding System (1845), the first systematic study of public finance in English, "[t]his is a valuable work. Its author having long been engaged in the supervision of the collection of the income or property tax repealed in 1815, it embodies much practical as well as theoretical information. We dissent from the views taken by Mr. Sayer of Taxes on Income: but we are not on that account the less ready to admit the ability and judgement he has displayed in recommending their adoption" (359). This study is based on an earlier work entitled On the Advantages of Substituting an Income Tax or Property Tax for the Present Taxes (1831).

        Hayne Hudjihini Eagle of Delight

      Key & Biddle, Philadelphia 1833 - Hand-coloured lithograph. In excellent condition. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. This very nice example of Hayne Hudjihini's portrait gives a hint of the beauty and charm that captivated President Monroe, Thomas McKenney and members of the Cabinet. She was one of Shaumonekusse's five wives, and was thought to be the most beautiful of all the Native American wives who visited Washington. She was eighteen or nineteen when King painted her portrait. Sadly, she died of the measles soon after returning home. McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk, and Black Hawk. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winnebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. Howes M129; cf. Bennett 79; cf. Field 992; cf.

        Battle of Eylau

      Paris 1833 - Baron Antoine-Jean Gros was a french painter. He in 1793 left France for Italy, in Genoa he made the acquaintance of Joséphine de Beauharnais, and followed her to Milan, where he was well received by her husband, Napoleon Bonaparte. On November 15, 1796, Gros was present with the army near Arcola when Bonaparte planted the French tricolor on the bridge. Gros seized on this incident, and showed by his treatment of it that he had found his vocation. Bonaparte at once gave him the post of "inspecteur aux revues", which enabled him to follow the army, and in 1797 nominated him on the commission charged to select the spoils which should enrich the Louvre.Gros was decorated and named baron of the empire by Napoleon, after the Salon of 1808, at which he had exhibited the "Battle of Eylau"Febuary 8th, 1807, between 53,000 French with 200 guns under Napoleon, and 72,000 Prussian and Russians, with 400 guns under Marshal Bennigsen. Napoleon attacked at daybreak, all along the line, but could at first make no impression on the Russian infantry, Marshal Augereau's 7th Corps being slaughtered during a snowstorm. Later in the day Marshal Davout all by succeeded turning the Russian left, but the oppertune arrival of a Prussian corps under General von Lestocq enabled the Russians to repulse him, and after a bloddy engagement, which lasted till ten p.m., both armies retainted their original positions. On the following day the Russiand retired unmolested. The French lost about 10,000; the Russians and Prussians about 25,000 killed and wounded.

        EXPERIMENTS AND OBSERVATIONS ON THE GASTRIC JUICE, AND THE PHYSIOLOGY OF DIGESTION

      Plattsburgh, NY: Printed by F. P. Allen. In original printer&#39;s boards with new endpapers and spine cloth. 1833. 1st edition. hb. 8vo, pp. 280. All three wood engravings present and in good condition. Small rubber (name) stamp on title page - no other markings. . Beaumont (1785-1853), a U.S. Army surgeon stationed at isolated Fort Mackinac in northern Michigan in 1822, attended upon a French-Canadian voyageur, Alexis St. Martin, who had been severly wounded by gunshot to the stomach. A permanent gastric fistula formed in the wound, through which Beaumont was able to view the stomach&#39;s contents during the process of digestion. During the next eight years, although St. Martin was often away hunting and trapping, Beaumont periodically met up with his patient to continue his observations. At one point, he extracted a specimen of St. Martin&#39;s gastric juices and sent the sample for analysis, where free hydrochloric acid was found. Beaumont&#39;s book is a remarkable example of brilliant clinical investigation performed under almost primitive conditions. (Beaumont, by the way, eventually lost touch with St. Martin, who was said to have lived for another 45 years and fathered 20 children). Approximately the top half of the original title page of this copy was missing and has now been expertly restored with a facsimile repair. Similarly, there was spotty loss to the paper of pages 23/24, which has now been repaired with japon paper (no loss of text). The contents are foxed throughout, but quite readable. The Errata page (p. 289) is present at the end of the book. Beaumont commissioned a printing of about 1,000 copies of this book, from a local Plattsburgh, NY, printer (where Beaumont was spending a leave), and the quality of the printer&#39;s work was not very high. Notable Medical Books, p. 185; G-M 989; Heirs of Hippocrates 834. .

        Outre-Mer No. I; with Outre-Mer No. II

      Hilliard, Gray & Co./Lilly, Wait and Company, Boston - 1833-34. FIRST EDITIONS, FIRST PRINTINGS of Longfellow's first two books of original work, [preceded only by a few grammars and translations]. Outre-Mer was modeled after Washington Irving's Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon in terms both of its content and its publication in numbered parts. More parts were planned, and one or two were actually prepared, but only these two were published as part of the original series. No. I appeared in July of 1833. Longfellow wrote to friends that No. II would come out that fall, but there were apparently glitches as it didn't appear until the following summer, and with the imprint of a different publisher. Only five hundred copies of No. I were printed. The size of the print run of No. II is unknown, but both parts are notably rare. The first part was originally bound in fragile, marbled paper wrappers, the second part in wrappers or cloth-backed, paper-covered boards. The two parts here have been rebound together in modern three-quarter calf over marbled boards. Apart from some scattered foxing and the odd age-darkened page, the book, and both component parts, are in near fine condition. BAL 12053 and 12056.
