Lithographed frontispiece and 5 plates (1 folding), folding colored map, text illustrations. London: Longman, Rees, Orne, Brown, Green & Longman, 1833. 213 x 132 mm. 19th century half calf, marbled boards, all edges gilt, rebacked preserving original spine, light edgewear. Plates somewhat foxed, map backed with linen, otherwise very good. Presentation copy, with Mantell's autograph inscription to Capt. [Proby Thomas] Cautley (1802-71) bound in before the frontispiece: "To Capt. Cautley as a mark of the high respect of the author for his important researches in Paleontology, & in gratitude for Captain Cautley's valuable addition to the Author's Museum. Brighton Feby. 14, 1837."First Edition. Announcing the discovery of Hylaeosaurus, the third dinosaur specimen to be discovered, and the first known specimen of the Ankylosauria. Mantell, a British obstetrician and enthusiastic amateur paleontologist, had discovered the first true dinosaur, the Iguanadon, in 1822 in the British county of Sussex. "In 1832 Mantell discovered the first strongly armored group of dinosaurs. He described this fossil, which he named Hylaeosaurus, in The Geology of the South-east of England. . . . Meanwhile, Buckland in 1824 had described the remains of the large carnivorous dinosaur Megalosaurus from the Jurassic near Oxford. Thus the first three dinosaurs to be known, the Iguanadon, the Megalosaurus, and the Hyaelosaurus, each belonged to a quite distinct group, later called Ornithopoda, Theropoda, and Ankylosauria, respectively" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).Mantell presented this copy of his Geology of the South-east of England to Proby Thomas Cautley, a British engineer and paleontologist who spent most of his career in India. Cautley was the first to find fossils in the Siwalik range of the Himalayas and, together with Hugh Falconer, he amassed and classified an enormous collection of sub-Himalayan fossils that he later presented to the British Museum. Cautley had evidently contributed a fossil specimen to Mantell's own museum, which he had established in his house in Brighton (the museum took over Mantell's entire residence, and his wife and children were forced to seek housing elsewhere!).

        Nouveau traité du jeu des échecs

      Au Cafe de la Regence, Paris 1833 - 2 parts bound in one. iv+167 with title chess diagram; 204+[3] with diagrams and errata. Octavo (8 1/4" 5 1/4") bound in marbled boards. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 673) First edition. Louis-Charles Mahe de la Bourdonnais was born into a noble family on Reunion Island, then called Bourbon Island, in the Indian Ocean. He was sent to Paris where he attended the Henry IV College and learned to play chess in 1814. From 1818 onwards he played seven days a week at the Café de la Regence, where he had his own table. In 1821 he defeated Alexandre Deschapelles and John Cochrane and in 1823 he defeated Lewis in London. In 1825 he visited England again and there he married Eliza Waller Gordon. In 1831 he lost the money that he had inherited from his father in a land speculation in Saint-Malo. From then chess was his only source of income. In 1833 he published Nouveau Traite du Jeux des Echecs and in 1834 he played a match against Alexander MacDonnell. The match consisted of six parts and La Bourdonnais. They didn't speak each others language and could only say 'check' to one another. MacDonnell took far more time to make his moves and in between them La Bourdonnais played quick chess against other players to earn some extra money. During the sixth and last part La Bourdonnais was recalled to France on urgent business matters and MacDonnell died before the match could be resumed. In 1836 he became one of the editors of the first chess magazine, La Palamede. In 1838 he suffered a stroke and then from dropsy. Things went downward from then. He had to sell his books, furniture and clothes and in 1840 he returned to London where he was employed at Simpson's Divan. He died in December of that year and George Walker, the organizer of his match against MacDonnell, paid for his burial. Condition: Tape to spine, edges chipped and rubbed, some foxing else a good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Catalogue of the Library Collected by Miss Richardson Currer at Eshton Hall, Yorkshire.

      Printed for Private Circulation Only by J. Moyes 1833 - Large 8vo, xii,501pp., one of 100 copies, steel-engraved frontispiece showing Eshton Hall and 3 steel-engraved plates of the library and its surroundings, cont. half morocco by J. Mackenzie (bookbinder to the King), upper hinge broken but still holding, spine gilt, marbled paper sides, corners a little bumped, uncut. Frances Mary Richardson Currer (1785-1861) was England's earliest female bibliophile and was described by Dibdin as the "head of all female book collectors in Europe.". Currer inherited the library of her great grandfather, Richard Richardson (1663-1741), botanist and antiquary, and with the additions made to this Currer built up a sizeable collection of 15,000 volumes. The catalogue is arranged in a number of classes, including religion, arts, natural science, topography, literature and history. Most of the books in her library were auctioned at Sotheby's in 1862, realising £6,000. Provenance: With the bookplate of David Bickerseth Magee (1905-1977). Born in Yorkshire, emigrated to America with the intention of taking up farming in California. However, the life of a farmer was not to be, and soon he found himself employed as an assistant to John Howell, noted San Francisco book dealer. In 1923, Magee opened his own book shop in San Francisco, and thus became one of the first in a long line of distinguished book dealers who were trained in the Howell establishment before venturing out on their own.

        England and America. A Comparison of the Social and Politcal State of Both Nations

      London: Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street, 1833 - Following imprisonment, Wakefield began to study colonial affairs of Australia with an eye towards immigration. Recognizing that the depressed condition of Australian affairs was due to a lack of efficiency and sensible handling he gathered his theories for correcting the problems and first published them in "A Letter from Sydney" (London 1829) under the name Robert Gouger. It was so well done that the author was supposed to be an immigrant. He revised and refined these views for his "New Colonization System" in "England and America" as the chapter the "Art of Colonisation." The theories for his "System" were to abolish free grants of agricultural land, requiring a fixed price which would be kept low enough so that a laborer would be able to purchase land after a few years [this to reduce the number of ex-convicts laborers from receiving land for which they had no use], to regulate immigration and to use tax monies from the rental of grants to bring laborers to the colonies. One of the main results of his publications and efforts was the founding of the National Colonization Society and then the South Australian Association, the latter intended to be based upon Wakefield's theories. He was also a close advisor to the Molesworth Committee. On the appointment of Lord Durham to Canada in 1838, Wakefield became interested in that territory and is credited with having greatly assisted Durham with his famous "Report on the Affairs of British North America." He also acted as an adviser to Sir Charles Theophilus Metcalfe in Canada in the 1840's. In 1837 Wakefield had formed the New Zealand Association and spent most of years following directing the affairs of the association from England while his brother William Hayward Wakefield directed and managed it from New Zealand (AUSTRALIAN COLONIES) First Edition. 2 vols., 8vo. xii, 331, [1]; iv, 341, [1] pp. Contemporary quarter tan calf and marbled boards.

        Noticias históricas y descriptivas sobre el gran pais del Chaco y Rio Bermejo

      Buenos Aires 1833 - The first edition of this elusive work on the Chaco, very rare with the folding map. 1833. Buenos Aires. Impreso en la Imprenta de Hallet y Cia. In 8vo (195 mm x 132 mm). 1 ff. + v + 421 + 1 ff. + folding map. Slightly later quarter morocco, spine with raised bands and lettered in gilt, edges rubbed, a little worn, still handsome. Browned as always, map detached but present, title with stamp; generally very fresh, a good copy. First edition. Uncommon with the folding map printed by César Bacle, arguably the foremost lithographer active in Buenos Aires at the turn of the 19th century, and shortly after the invention of the lithograph. Arenales was an Argentinian military, engineer and politician; as a military, he acted at the orders of San Martin at the Andes army, and then in the northern frontier and finally at the war with Brazil, probably during the last chapters of his career he obtained the information he would use to write this work. He was also Chief of the topography department of Buenos Aires. The map was drawn by Arenales himself and engraved by Bacle at the Litografía del Estado. Palau, 15911.

Additionally, unlike the majority of his other works, Catherwood has clearly signed and dated this watercolor. . Book.

        Historia do descobrimento e conquista da India pelos Portugueses. Nova edicao.

      Lisbon, typographia Rollandiana, 1833.. Small 4to. 8 vols. bound in 7. Original cloth with giltstamped title to appealingly gilt spine. Marbled endpapers. All edges red.. An early history of the Portuguese discovery and conquest of India. Large portions are concerned with the exploits of Afonso de Albuquerque and Vasco da Gama, whose journey via Ormuz, Mucat (Mazcate), Qatif (Catifa), Bahrain (Bahare), Khor Fakkan (Orfacao), etc. is comparable in importance only to Columbus's in the west, as it "opened the way for the maritime invasion of the East by Europe" (PMM 42). Da Gama's pioneering sea voyage ranks amongst the greatest historic events of the second millennium and as "one of the defining moments in the history of exploration" (BBC History, online). It is also considered the turning point in the political history of the Arabian Gulf region, followed as it was by a prolonged period of east-west commerce, conquest and conflict. - The Portuguese historian and traveller Fernao Lopez de Castanheda (1500-59) accompanied his father, a royal officer, to Portuguese India and to the Moluccas. He spent the next ten years travelling through Asia. During this period he collected materials for his "Historia", both from personal observation and from the documents and reports of others. The work was first published in 1552-61. - Some occasional browning. Binding somewhat rubbed and bumped at extremeties, with minor worming. Provenance: From the library of Paulo Arantes with his bookplate and ownership (dated 1925) on title page. - Howgego I, C67. OCLC 313028250.

        [Collection of 17 acts of parliament concerning slavery]. London, Charles Eyre and Andrew Strahan, 1793-1821; Charles Eyre and Andrew Spottiswoode, 1833; Dublin, George Grierson 1807. Folio (ca. 31×19 cm). 17 acts of the British parliament concerning slavery plus 1 extra added act concerning payments of cash by the Bank of England. Disbound. Loose in a modern cloth clamshell box.

      Seventeen acts of the British parliament concerning slavery, including the 27-page act of 1833 legally abolishing slavery "throughout the British colonies". Slavery had been prohibited for centuries in England itself, but the present collection of acts, ranging from 2 to 27 pages, documents the growing restrictions on the colonial slave trade, beginning with a 20-page act of 1793 attempting to ensure humane conditions on slave ships and mandating the keeping and checking of their registers, and ending with the act of 1833. This was not quite the end of legal slavery in the British Empire, because clause 64 of the 1833 act exempts territories of the East India Company, Ceylon and Saint Helena from its jurisdiction, so that slavery was not legally abolished there until 1843. The 1833 act did, however, ban slavery in most of the British Empire 30 years before the Emancipation Proclamation in the United States, and 32 years before the 13th amendment to the United States constitution legally abolished all slavery there.A few acts have damage to the fold or other minor marginal defects, but all are in good or very good condition with generous margins and many are untrimmed. A valuable collection of parliamentary acts concerning slavery, forming and essential source for any study of the subject.

        On the mechanical arrangements of the analytical engine of the late Charles Babbage", In Report of the fifty-eighth meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science held at Bath in September 1888. London: John Murray, 1889. Pp. 616-7

      First edition of the only early printed account of the operation of Babbage's Analytical Engine (as opposed to the difference engine, of which there are several contemporary accounts, notably that by Ada Lovelace). Presentation copy to the BAAS. "The paper sketches the origin of the engine in 1833-4 and describes the chief means employed to direct it. The cards which have been already more or less described. The principle of 'chain,' by which any possible contingency among many may be provided for. There is a movable block for each event anticipated, which on the occurrence of the event is moved into a certain position; a lever or arm is made to act, so that when the movable block is in that position it is moved and passes on the motion to something else, effecting whatever change may be desired in the mechanism…" ("On the mechanical arrangements," 617). The BAAS "praised the basic conception of the analytical engine 'as a marvel of mechanical ingenuity and resource,' but concluded that 'in the present state of the design it is not more than a theoretical possibility; that is to say, we do not consider it a certainty that it could be constructed and put together so as to run smoothly and correctly, and to do the work expected of it… we have come, not without reluctance, to the conclusion, that we cannot advise the BA to take any steps, either way of recommendation or otherwise, to procure the construction of Mr. Babbage's Analytical Engine.' However, according to Babbage's son, an arithmetic unit was used to give a successful demonstration to the committee of the operation of addition, with parallel assimilation of the carry digits" (Randell, Ludgate's Analytical Machine of 1909, 14, 3, Computing Science, 317). CONDITION & DETAILS: Original publisher's cloth, covers decorated in blind, spine lettered in gilt. Some rubbing and scuffing at the edges; a bit of surface dirt and two small holes to the spinal cloth at the rear hinge. Presentation copy from the BAAS (printed slip tipped onto front paste-down), library bookplates on front paste-down and fron free endpaper, no other library marks either internally of externally.

Story's Commentaries was the most substantial and influential work written on the American Constitution before the Civil War, and it remains an important work today. Written while Story was Dane Professor at Harvard Law School and an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, it presented a strongly Nationalist interpretation. It is divided into three books. Book I contains a history of the colonies and discussion of their charters. Book II discusses the Continental Congress and analyzes the flaws that crippled the Articles of Confederation. Book III begins with a history of the Constitution and its ratification. This is followed by a brilliant line-by-line exposition of each of its articles and amendments. Comparing it to the Federalist, James Kent said that Story's work was "written in the same free and liberal spirit, with equal exactness and soundness of doctrine, and with great beauty and eloquence of composition. (...) Whoever seeks...a complete history and exposition of this branch of our jurisprudence, will have recourse to [this] work, which is written with great candor, and characterized by extended research, and a careful examination of the vital principles upon which our government reposes.": cited in Marvin. McArthur was a lawyer in Livingston, Maine. Marvin , Legal Bibliography 669-670
