        Sense and Sensibility. A Novel.

      London: Richard Bentley (successor to Henry Colburn); Bell and Bradfute, Edinburgh; Cumming, Dublin; and Galignani, Paris, 1833 - Octavo (168 x 100 mm). Period style blue half calf, crimson morocco label, decoration to bands gilt, marbled boards, plain endpapers. Some foxing to frontispiece and title pages, an excellent copy. Engraved frontispiece and extra engraved vignette title by William Greatbach after Ferdinand Pickering. First Bentley edition, third overall, also the first one-volume edition, bound with the series title page. Bentley bought the copyrights of all Jane Austen's works to include them in his Standard Novels series, apparently aiming at the private buyer, as circulating libraries still had copies of the originals. Bentley later reissued the volumes as a set, but this copy is from the original individual issue, numbered XXIII in the Standard Novels series. Sadleir 3734. [Attributes: First Edition]

        1841 Rare and Scarce 2nd Edition Noah Webster Bible - Not Found in References

      - An extremely valuable and rare piece of American and Biblical history. By 1833 when this bible was published, its editor, Noah Webster had written a number of books that were widely used in schools of his day, including spelling books, grammars, and histories. His long list of important books culminated with his famous dictionary, 'An American Dictionary of the English Language'. One of his biographers called him "America's Schoolmaster," and, as such, he naturally turned his attention to one of the few books which were more influential than his own - The Bible. Webster began work on his project in 1831, and publication of the first edition occurred in 1833. Webster's Preface to his revision of the Bible is a significant document in the history of American usage of the English language, as one might expect. In this 15 page introduction, 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. Webster "untangled some of the clumsy phrases and updated the vocabulary so the early nineteenth century readers, both young and old, could more easily understand the Bible. The changes he made were minimal but crucial. Master grammarian that he was, Webster was sensitive to the beauty and integrity of the KJV and did not tamper with these qualities. Rather, he replaced obsolete terms with those in good use (supposed instead of trow). He also improved the grammar (standardized the use of shall-will, should-would), and corrected obvious errors in the translation. A strong evangelical Christian Webster's high view of Scripture prompted his masterful improvement of the English text. The 2nd edition appeared in 16mo in 1841 and the NT was issued separately in 1839 and 1841. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Massachusetts

      , 1833 - 1840. 1833 - 1840. In accordance with a Massachusetts law passed on January 22, 1776 Section 23 claiming that each Brigadier General of the colony should provide two field forces. The men were often selected from two separate regiments. This manuscript with over 110 pp details the elections of the field officers as well as military officials tried for indiscretions. The items date from 1833 to 1840 with varying headquarters based in New Bedford, Wareham, Fall River, Boston and Pawtucket. Some of the excerpts read: "October 18, 1833 "The committee on Military Affairs, to whom was referred an application for authority to raise a volunteer Company of riflemen in New Bedford, report - that said application is signed by forty five individuals representing that they are mechanics and citizens of New Bedford that there is no independent Company of Infantry or riflemen in that town and that in the present state of the military companies in that place, the service would be greatly benefited by the organization of a company of Riflemen. This representation having been accompanied with a communication from James D. Thompson who is Brigadier General of the second brigade, fifth division, which although not in the form of an official certificate my nevertheless be considered as an approval of the object of the petitioners, and his Excellency the commander in Chief having been lately advised to disband the company of Cavalry in Norton, the committee recommend that authority be granted for raising said company of riflemen by voluntary enlistment to be annex'd to the Fourth Regiment second Brigade , fifth division and to be recruited within the limits of said Regiment, provided that said company shall not be organized until forty five persons shall be enrolled for that purpose . . . " "August 7, 1834 reads, "The Brigadier General, very much regrets that a return should have been received by him under the sanction of the name of so able an officer as Col. Stone so very imperfect and incorrect as that received from the 4th Regiment in June last; and cannot but hope it never passed his inspection, notwithstanding his name is attached thereto - The charges are first that as much of the artillery as is returned as al, is incorporated with the infantry, which is not the place for it, a special return having been provided and sent for that purpose. Second, all the return that is made of the artillery is simply the, men composing the company and their knapsacks nothing is said of their arms and equipments, their guns . . . brag ropes - Bricoles - Harnesses and the only way the Brig Major could make his return was from yours of last year . . . Thus sir I have endeavored to lay before you the imperfections in the return rec'd from your regiment; and when you recollect the importance attached to these returns, you will undoubtedly see the necessity of having them entirely correct and that you will be vigilant, to see that such another return may never . . . from any officer under our command. By order of the Brig. Gen'l 2'd Brig. And 5th Division. J.H. Collins Brig. Major." "January 26, 1836 General Orders: At a general court martial held at Dedham on the 6th Inst. Of which Brig, Gen'l . . . Oldham of the first Brigade and fifth divisions is President was tried Major John P. Jones commander of a Battalion of Light Infantry in he second Brigade first Div. Of the militia on a complaint exhibited against him for Breach of Duty by Brigadier Gen'l Amos H. Boyd of the same Brigade. The court having considered the charge and the several specifications under it, is of the opinion and decides that the said Maj. John P. Jones is guilty of the first specification except the words "being instigated by motives of hatred and ill will towards the several individuals so elected" and also he words "with malice" that the said Major John P. Jones is guilty of the second specifications except that words being actuated by motives of malice and ill will against the said Mowny, Blake and Hawes also the word malicious and also the words, "the said rifle company has been during the time aforesaid without any commissioned officers." . . . And the court sentenced the said Maj. John P. Jones to be removed from office and do adjudge him to be disqualified for and incapable of holding any military office under this commonwealth for ten years and the court do further sentence the said Maj. John P. Jones to pay a fine of one hundred dollars." "Headquarters of Boston, July 9, 1839 General Orders, A resonance against the election held in New Bedford on the 30th of March for the choice of Field officers in the 2nd Reg't and 2 Brig. And 5 division, having been received with a statement from the Major General , confirming the representation contained therein, the commander in chief after a careful examination of the circumstances, considers the election to have been so irregularly conducted as to make it necessary to set the proceedings aside, which is accordingly done, and a new election ordered . . ." Some of the many names you will see inside are George A. Bourne, Lieutenant Charles White, Capt. E.G. Perkins and many more. Perfect for archival research. The front cover of the book is separated.

        A Sketch of the History of Ohio

      Cincinnati: Corey and Fairbank, 1833. First Separate Edition. Hardcover. Good. Tall octavo, 40pp. A good copy in the original boards with period brown calf spine and corner tips and red morocco spine label. Dampstaining and general wear to boards, gentle wear at the corners, and moderate internal foxing. Pencil and some ink writing to the endpapers and endleaves, with some internal notations. Some chipping and minor closed tears to a few leaves, not affecting text. A highly scarce volume, considered by many to be one of the earliest works solely dedicated to the history of Ohio, which, at the time of publication, had been a state for only three decades. Chase, who is best known for serving as Secretary of the Treasury during the Lincoln administration, also served as Governor of Ohio and Senator from Ohio. He published this volume when he was just 25 years old, originally as part of his "Statutes of Ohio," and was soon after published separately, of which this copy is an example (Howes C-320 (aa)). Though in far from fine condition, a rare and highly sought after early history of the Buckeye state, authored by a young and ambitious Salmon P. Chase, who would, over the next three decades, cement himself as a transformational figure in Ohio and American politics.

        Entrepotdok Amsterdam - Petrus Josephus Lutgers, 1833.

      BEDRIJVIGHEID IN HET ALGEMEEN RIJKSENTREPOT TE AMSTERDAM?Entrep?t-dok, te Amsterdam? gezien vanaf de Plantage Muidergracht richting Oosterdok, steendruk uit 1833 van de hand van Petrus Josephus Lutgers, gedrukt door Desguerrois & Co. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm ca. 37 x 46 cm. (Afm. lijst: 54 x 74 cm.)Om in de 19e-eeuw transitohandel in Amsterdam te stimuleren, konden in het Rijks Entrepot goederen tijdelijk worden opgeslagen, zonder dat daarover invoerrechten moesten worden afgedragen. Accijnzen hoefden pas te worden betaald op het moment dat de goederen op de markt werden gebracht.Na de oprichting van het Rijks Entrepot werden tussen 1827 en 1840 werden 51 reeds bestaande pakhuizen aangekocht van particuliere eigenaren. Ook werden er 33 nieuwe pakhuizen bijgebouwd. De pakhuizen van de particuliere eigenaren waren in gebruik als opslag van wijn, cacao, graan, rogge, hout, walvis-spek en walvis-traan. Ze droegen namen als Bordeaux, Brandewijnstuk, Dantzig en de Hoop. Na de overname krijgen de pakhuizen nieuwe namen. Gekozen wordt voor de namen van de handelssteden uit de Noordelijke en Zuidelijke Nederlanden (het latere Belgi?), waarmee vanuit Amsterdam handel wordt gedreven. De naamgeving van de panden is een hommage aan het nieuwe nationale zelfbewustzijn dat opkwam na de Franse tijd.Omdat het Rijks Entrepot in 1827 een afgesloten en bewaakt douane-terrein wordt, komt er rondom het Entrepot een hoge muur aan de zijde van de Kadijk. Het terrein wordt bewaakt door hellebaardiers en krijgt slechts ??n toegang: het nog steeds bestaande poortgebouw aan het Kadijksplein.Tegen het eind van de 19e eeuw kunnen zeeschepen vanwege hun toegenomen grootte het Entrepot niet meer bereiken. Ze leggen nu aan in de haven van Amsterdam. In 1894 wordt het Entrepotdok overgenomen door de gemeente Amsterdam en wordt weer een normale goederenopslag.Deze steendruk is een losse uitgave van tekenmeester, schilder en lithograaf Lutgers (1808-1874), die als landschapsschilder gespecialiseerd was in riviergezichten.Prijs: ?975,- (incl. lijst).

        Emigration in Search of a Husband

      J. Kendrick, London 1833 - Handcoloured etching from a scrapbook with abbreviated title, 240 x 195 mm., lower margin and caption title incomplete. A famous satirical cartoon, lampooning the fate of a prospective bride upon her departure for the Australian colonies. A shortage of women was a defining quality of colonial society from the foundation years through the 1840s. Only the mass emigration of the gold rush years finally equalized the gender imbalance.This cartoon was printed in 1833 after the British Government had established the Emigration Commission to assist female emigration. Although intended to be humorous, it does reflect the possibilities for social and economic advancement on offer in New South Wales. It depicts a slender porter struggling to carry a heavy trunk for a portly woman wearing a large bonnet. The porter asks "What are you going to Sidney for, pray ma'am ?" and the lady replies: "Vy [why] they says as how theres lots of good husbands to be had cheap whereas the brutes in England can't see no charms in a woman unles she's got plenty of money to keep 'em in idleness". This aspirational dialogue pokes fun at the British Government's intent to encourage social mobility in what was still a penal colony in the early days of transition. Bottom margin trimmed and cropped, lacking words from the original full caption title (the word "Emigration" retained), and Kendrick's details and address (as printmaker).

        Notes on Chinese mediaeval travellers to the west.Shanghai, American Presbyterian mission press; London, Trübner and co., 1875. 8vo. With numerous Chinese characters in text and 3 wood engraved illustrations in text. Contemporary blind- and gold-blocked cloth.

      Cordier, Sinica, col. 2667; Couling, p. 64. First separately published edition of a work on Chinese travellers from the 13th century by the Baltic physician and sinologist Emil Bretschneider (1833-1901). "His writings both on botany and geography are extremely valuable" (Couling). The book is divided into four chapters, each devoted to a different Chinese traveller or voyage to the west. Bretschneider starts each chapter with a brief introduction, followed by a translation of Chinese sources including many Chinese characters. The first chapter deals with the travels of the Taoist monk Qiu Chuji (1148-1227), who travelled to Persia and India in the years 1221-1224 to meet the Mongol Khan. The second chapter narrates the journey of a Mongol embassy to west Asia, and chapter three is an "account of Western countries", written by an envoy of the Chinese Jin dynasty around 1220. He describes the customs and culture of the "Mohameddans" he meets in the west, probably describing the city Herat in Afghanistan. The last chapter describes partly the travels of the Khitan statesman Yelü Chucai, who served Genghis Khan, to present-day Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.Presentation copy, with a note by the author to "V. Gauvain" in ink on first flyleaf. Title-page with some faint damp stains, otherwise in very good condition.

First and only edition, rare, especially so complete, as here: three copies only traced at auction of which two lacking the subscriber's list, a third copy lacking five plates; Copac locates three copies in UK libraries (British Library, National Library of Scotland, and the V & A), OCLC adding three institutional copies world-wide of which one (the Minnesota copy) is substantially incomplete, with 56 text-pages only (the other copies in Basel and Canberra). Abbey did not have a copy, and the subscribers' list records just 87 names. Bellew (1799-1868) was employed in the Hyderabad Civil Service, rising to deputy-assistant-commissary-general for Bengal and retiring with the rank of captain in 1832. Authorship is sometimes attributed to his brother Henry Walter (1803-42), father of the noted army doctor and Afghanistan expert of the same, but Henry Sr's continuous career in the Bengal army, into which he was commissioned in 1815 and in whose service he died fighting in the First Afghan War, makes this comparatively unlikely. Francis also published an autobiography, Memoirs of a Griffin, in 1845. His accomplished sketches include topographical and architectural views mainly in northern India, including Bhimtal, Almora, Jhansi and elsewhere, as well as several views of Orchha in central India and Arakan (now in Myanmar). The errata leaves (counted in the pagination) indicate that Views in India was originally issued in at least four fascicles, which offers an explanation for its remarkable scarcity today.

        Entrepotdok - Petrus Josephus Lutgers, 1833.

      BEDRIJVIGHEID IN HET ALGEMEEN RIJKSENTREPOT TE AMSTERDAM?Entrep?t-dok, te Amsterdam? van Nieuwe Herengracht naar Oranje Nassau Kazerne gezien, steendruk uit 1833 van de hand van Petrus Josephus Lutgers, gedrukt door Desguerrois & Co. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm ca. 37 x 46 cm.Losse uitgave van de tekenmeester, schilder en lithograaf Lutgers (1808-1874), die als landschapsschilder gespecialiseerd was in riviergezichten.Om in de 19e-eeuw transitohandel in Amsterdam te stimuleren, konden in het Rijks Entrepot goederen tijdelijk worden opgeslagen, zonder dat daarover invoerrechten moesten te worden afgedragen. Accijnzen hoefden pas te worden betaald op het moment dat de goederen op de markt werden gebracht.Na de oprichting van het Rijks Entrepot werden tussen 1827 en 1840 werden 51 reeds bestaande pakhuizen aangekocht van particuliere eigenaren. Ook werden er 33 nieuwe pakhuizen bijgebouwd. De pakhuizen van de particuliere eigenaren waren in gebruik als opslag van wijn, cacao, graan, rogge, hout, walvis-spek en walvis-traan. Ze droegen namen als Bordeaux Brandewijnstuk, Dantzig en de Hoop. Na de overname krijgen de pakhuizen nieuwe namen. Gekozen wordt voor de namen van de handelssteden uit de Noordelijke en Zuidelijke Nederlanden (het latere Belgi?), waarmee vanuit Amsterdam handel wordt gedreven. De naamgeving van de panden is een hommage aan het nieuwe nationale zelfbewustzijn dat opkwam na de Franse tijd.Omdat het Rijks Entrepot in 1827 een afgesloten en bewaakt douane-terrein wordt, komt er rondom het Entrepot een hoge muur aan de zijde van de Kadijk. Het terrein wordt bewaakt door hellebaardiers en krijgt slechts ??n toegang: het nog steeds bestaande poortgebouw aan het Kadijksplein.Tegen het eind van de 19e eeuw kunnen zeeschepen vanwege hun toegenomen grootte het Entrepot niet meer bereiken. Ze leggen nu aan in de haven van Amsterdam. In 1894 wordt het Entrepotdok overgenomen door de gemeente Amsterdam en wordt weer een normale goederenopslag.Prijs: ?975,- (incl. lijst).

        Kiyoko zuga [= Representation of Nagasaki harbour].[Nagasaki, ca. 1880?]. A large watercolour painting of Nagasaki harbour (image size: 49.5 x 87.5 cm), probably on mulberry bark paper, with one large Asian ship, more than a dozen small Asian boats, and a steam boat in the background, all rendered following Western conventions of perspective. In a passe-partout in a modern wooden frame painted gold (95 x 125 cm), behind glass.

      A large watercolour painting from the Meiji period showing Nagasaki harbour viewed from the city, looking across at the Papenburg (Dutch for Pope's mountain), named for the many Catholic martyrs who were thrown off the peak. A large Asian ship in the harbour (15.5 cm tall in the painting) forms a focal point in the painting, while the masts of another appear in the foreground at left. Several more Asian sailing ships appear far in the background and there are many small rowboats in the foreground and background. Of special interest is a steamboat sailing into the harbour in the background left, with two smokestacks.Ochiai Yoshiiku (1833-1904) belonged to the group of woodcut artists known as the Utagawa school, and is therefore also known as Utagawa Yoshiiku. He studied with Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861), who had studied with Tokokuni I (1769-1825), who took charge of the group when its founder, his teacher Utagawa Toyoharu (1735-1814), died. The Utagawa school is known for mixing Western traditions, especially Western perspective, into traditional Japanese styles. While most of Ochiai's work remained faithful to the traditional manner, the present painting shows a nearly pure Western perspective. This combined with the fact that his name also appears transliterated in the Latin alphabet may mean this painting was made for a European patron.With a few wrinkles in the paper slightly affecting the mountain at the right, the sky near it and the sail of the large ship, but otherwise in fine condition. A lovely and unusually large Japanese watercolour painting, showing Nagasaki harbour with many ships and boats.

Les 2 premiers volumes furent publiés en 1833, les 2 seconds en 1835. Une grande carte dépliante et de nombreuses tables (Températures, météorologie.) in fine ; 4 vignettes de titre et culs-de-lampe représentant des navires ou scènes en fin de chaque chapitre. Cette édition se trouve complète ainsi (Notice BNF n° : FRBNF30738909), c'est l'éditeur Arthus Bertrand qui réédita le texte en 1835 (et qui se trouvait le dépositaire de l'imprimerie royale pour les voyages) en lui adjoignant 3 atlas qui complétèrent la publication à diverses dates, un atlas hydrographique, un atlas zoologique (in-8, 1839) et un album du voyage d'aquatintes, l'ensemble au format in folio ; ces atlas très chers et particulièrement somptueux ne se trouvent que rarement avec les textes. A la suite des notes du tome IV, Mémoires sur les opérations géographiques par M. Serval (notamment sur les 4 montres marines de Berthoud qui furent emportés sur les navires). Reliures en cartonnage d'époque blond. Dos lisses ornés de filets. Pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin brun. Dos légèrement assombris. Traces de frottements. Quelques coins repliés. Rousseurs éparses. Bon exemplaire. Missionné par le gouvernement pour rétablir l'influence française dans le Pacifique et des accords commerciaux, La Favorite partit également dans un but scientifique qu'elle réalisa pleinement. L'expédition vers les terres australes partit de Toulon en décembre 1829 et revint en avril 1832. En suivant les côtes africaines, l'expédition atteignit Pondichéry, la Cochinchine, le Tonkin, les Philippines, l'Australie, la Nouvelle Zélande, la Tasmanie, et revint en traversant le Pacifique, puis longea les côtes du Brésil, pour enfin rejoindre Toulon par L'atlantique. La relation et les descriptions sont extrèmement riches et détaillés, visant une certaine objectivité ; le narrateur décrit simplement ce qu'il voit, sans considérations scientifiques. La mission fit une escale à L'île de Bourbon, et de nombreuses escales dans toutes les villes côtières, Macao, Canton, Manille, Valparaiso, Rio de Janeiro.

Engraved vignette titles and frontispieces by William Greatbach after Ferninand Pickering (with tissue-guards intact). Bound without half-title. Boards a little scuffed, recased, a couple of small adhesions to text. Withal a very good, clean, copy. First Bentley edition, the second edition overall, and the first English edition to be illustrated. In 1832–3 Richard Bentley bought the copyright to all Austen's novels, which had not been reissued since 1818, to include them in his Standard Novels series, of which this is no. XXV. The Bentley illustrations, by the obscure Ferdinand Pickering, played an integral part in the reception of Austen's novels; according to one Austen scholar, they "promoted a sense that her novels were best understood as familial, female focused, and sensational. For decades, these illustrations would have served to steer readers away from the conclusion that Austen's fiction ought to be understood as social, comic, or didactic" (Davoney Looser, The Making of Jane Austen, 2017, p. 20).

In The Rare Binding Of Brown Cloth Over Stiff Card, Covers Blindstamped And With Gilt "Goose's Melodies". Hardcover Deluxe Edition With Hand-Colored Plates. Estimated Printing Over Several Years 1833 Of Over 100,000 Copies; Only 1 Is Shown In Worldcat And Only About 12 Copies Known To The Bibliographer (Bleiler) In 1970, Although There Are Additional Copies Known, For Example At The American Antiquarian Society And The New York Historical Society, Almost All Known Copies Are Bound In Printed Paper Wrappers. An Early Modern "Mother Goose" For Children Printed In America, With Extensive Borrowings From Earlier Editions, And Itself Extensively Reprinted And Borrowed From By Other Publishers In The Nineteenth Century, Still Quite Readable Today For Adults And Children, Preserving The Rhymes In Nearly The Versions Used At Present. The Difficult Bibliography Of This Book Is Provided At Length By Bleiler In His Introduction And Bibliographical Appendix To The 1970 Dover Reprint. Briefly: He Describes, In Apparent Date Order, The Hamilton, Rosenbach, Brown, And Dover Types; The First Two Were Known To Him Only In Single Copies, The Brown And Dover Versions [The Dover Version In Both Boston And New York Imprints] In Several Copies Each. This Example Appears To Be A Deluxe, Hardcover, Hand-Colored Mixed State Apparently Issued Between Bleiler's Brown And Dover States, With Most But Not All Text Corresponding To The Dover Version, With The Following Points: The Title Page Shows The Boston Imprint Of Munroe And Francis; P. 2 Has "Billy", Unlike Hamilton But Like Brown And Dover; The Illustration On P. 36 Is Upside Down, As In The Hamilton And Rosenbach Copies, But This Was Corrected In The Dover Edition, So This Printing Apparently Is After His "Brown" Version But Precedes The Dover Variety; P. 11 Text Is "Sing, Sing!", With Final Period, This Period Noted As Lacking In The Dover Edition; And Pp 55 And 84 Have The Illustrations That Bleiler Notes As Present Only In The "Earlier" Munroe And Francis Printings. Page 12 Has "Bye Baby Bunting", As In The Dover Variety, And Unlike The "Hi Diddle" In The Brown Variety. The Brown Cloth Binding Is Similar But Not Identical To That Cloth Binding Which Bleiler Indicates Was Used For A Hardcover Edition Of The Dover Variety, And The Illustrations Are In Four Colors [Blue, Green, Yellow, And Red] Lacking The Fifth Color, Orange, Which Bleiler Ascribes To The Hardcover Printing Of The Dover Variety. The Contents Are Not Similar To The Later Whitmore Or Hislop States, Of Course. The Points Thus Indicate An Early Printing, Later Than The Brown Example Cited By Bleiler But Earlier Than The Dover Example Which He Cites. Light Wear, No Chips Or Tears, Cover Gilt Bright, Small Corner Crease At Lower Front Tip, Hinges Solid Binding Intact, Pages With Some Wear But No Tears Or Losses, Colors Bright, An Exceptionally Nice Example Of A Scarce And Important Early American Children's Book.

Donizetti (Werk Nr. 10 bei Cranz) Brahms eventuell zugeschrieben werden (?).Die beiden Marks-Werke sind jeweils unten mit einem russischen (kyrillisch) Kommissions-Verleger-Stempel versehen.

        Sketches of Turkey in 1831 and 1832.

      New York: J. J. Harper,, 1833. By an American. Octavo in half-sheets (227 x 140 mm). Later 19th-century red half calf, spine richly gilt in compartments, dotted roll gilt to raised bands, green morocco label, marbled sides, edges and endpapers. Wood-engravings to the text. Bound without the 4 pages of advertisements. Bookplate of Lancashire chemist and discriminating bibliophile Robert J. Hayhurst to the front pastedown. Spine sunned, extremities lightly rubbed, scattered light spotting, a small number of leaves roughly trimmed along the fore edge, the text never affected, occasional lightly pencilled underlining and marginalia. A very good copy. First edition. De Kay (1792-1851), best remembered for his achievements in zoology, travelled to Istanbul with his father-in-law Henry Eckford, a noted American shipbuilder engaged to rebuild the Ottoman fleet following the Battle of Navarino; De Kay himself was briefly considered for the newly created position of American consul in Constaninople. The visit also coincided with the sweeping military and administrative reforms of Sultan Mahmud II (r. 1808-39), which under his son and successor Abdülmecid I became known as the Tanzimat. De Kay's account, "a very interesting work full of historical and and political sketches and including a special chapter on the first treaty between the Porte and the US" (Blackmern), also contains lively descriptions of the neighbourhoods of Istanbul, its Armenian, Greek and Jewish communities, and public health issues. The book is well-held in American libraries, but only seven copies in UK institutions, and only infrequently coming to market.
