        Statistica della Provincia di Saluzzo.

      per Domenico Lobetti - Bodoni, 1833 - 1835, Saluzzo, - 2 voll. in-4° (285x220mm), pp. XVI, 470, VIII, (2), 30 (di Appendice), (2); 546, XI, (3, errata), 28 (di Appendice), 16 (di indice alfabetico); cartonatura coeva con titolo in oro entro tasselli in pelle rossa ai dorsi. 2 tabelle statistiche a stampa ripiegate f.t., 2 grandi carte topografiche ripiegate (Provincia di Saluzzo e topografia di Monviso) e 10 vedute in litografia f.t. disegnate e incise da F. Muletti ed impresse dalle officine Festa, Ajello e Doyen, realizzate tra il 1832 e il '34 (Rossana, Castello di Raconigi, Revello, Castello di Verzuolo, Cava di Sarizzo, Cavallermaggiore, Racconigi, Staffarda, Savigliano e la grande veduta di Saluzzo). Bellissimo esemplare in barbe, marginoso e a fogli chiusi. Rara edizione originale di questa vastissima opera, compilata "sul modello delle mirabili descrizioni statistiche del periodo napoleonico" (Einaudi, Saggi bibliogr. e storici, p. 208). Lo studio concerne infatti ogni aspetto della vita sociale ed economica del territorio di Saluzzo, compreso il Monviso ed alcune vallate alpine, fornendo estese informazioni sulla situazione demografica, economica, amministrativa, climatica, ecc., dei territori interessati. L'opera, per la sua rarità, è stata reimpressa in anastatica nel 1979. L'Eandi (1791-1848) fu Sottoprefetto di Saluzzo. Lasciò ancora una dissertazione Sulle Casse di risparmio stabilite nei R. Stati di terraferma, sui loro risultamenti e sui modi di favorirne l'incremento (1844). "L'avvocato Giovanni Eandi, cav. Mauriziano e socio dell'Accademia delle Scienze, fu intendente a Chiavari e poi a Pallanza. lasciò onorata e cara ricordanza, sia per la retta e provvida sua amministrazione, sia per le utili opere pubbliche che promosse. Coprì poi nella Capitale alte cariche. La sua Statistica della provincia di Saluzzo, frutto di lunghe veglie e continue diligenti ricerche, è lavoro. da non soffrire d'essere paragonato che colle migliori monografie di tale genere".

        Autograph Letter signed to his friend H. W. Kolle, concerning arrangements for a Hackney Coach outing and Kolle's arrest for climbing a lamp post

      [London, january, 1833]. 8vo. 4pp. Slight browning, otherwise in excellent condition . A superb letter from Dickens to his friend, H.W. Kolle from 1833 -- in fact, the earliest letter of any substance to appear on the market in the last 30 years. Only one earlier letter precedes it - a short note of invitation from 1832; no other letter from 1833 has surfaced at a public sale in the last three decades. Dickens' friend Kolle was a bank clerk who acted as a go between for Dickens during his love affair with Maria Beadnell, Dickens' first girlfriend. Kolle himself was engaged to one of the Beadnell sisters, Anne, and here, Dickens urges his friend to undertake all the arrangements for a Hackney Coach outing (presumably with the Beadnells). Along the way, Dickens pokes fun at Kolle's arrest on he previous Sunday evening for climbing a lamp post (according to a family tradition) - but certainly under the influence of drink. " ... on the subject of the Coach Engagement I should really prefer leaving it to you. My reason is this -- not to mention the obvious one that you do everything so well -- You engaged the last I never did anything in the money way without being imposed upon . . I really should not like my off hand, badly digested bargain to be balanced against your more prudent, less expensive and in every respect more eligible arrangements. With our friends the Beadnells too you can do no wrong." "I never was more delighted in my life than to hear that you were incarcerated ... My only regret is that I was not there to see the fun ... I suppose the story is to be entre nous and that in relating it, you follow the usual directions on the Glass Packages 'with care keep this side up' ... am so anxious to hear the particklers ... Of course you are not in fault. Those policemen are such a rascally set of Negroes (Blacks not Browns) ... " The date is supplied by the editors of the Pilgrim edition of THE LETTERS, who also note that the incident of Kolles arrest was at least partly the inspiration of Dickens' "Making a Night of It," in No 4 of "Scenes and Characters", 8 October 1834, in BELL'S LIFE IN LONDON, under the pseudonym "Tibbs"; and later, in SKETCHES BY BOZ, SECOND SERIES (1837). An incomparable Dickens letter of a very rare vintage, indeed

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

      Mexico. 26 de Noviembre de 1833. - Broadside, 11 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches, on a folded folio sheet. 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. OCLC 21636893.

Despite all faults, an unsophisticated copy, which presents. well externally. As an added bonus, there are some marginalia in. pencil and ink on pages 179, 196 and 197 by three contemporary. readers, one terming the story "a damned lie," another calling it. "the most ridiculous book that ever was written," and the third. calling it "profound" and the earlier readers "stupid." Enclosed in a. custom quarter leather folding box. (#75682). First U.S. edition. The text of this edition follows that of the 1818 UK first edition; it is a pirated edition according to Lyles. "FRANKENSTEIN is at once a Gothic horror tale and the first important science fiction novel. Its sustained popularity and place in modern myth is probably as much due to the innumerable stage, film, television, comic book and radio adaptations of it -- most of which depart completely from the text -- as to the strength of the work itself." - Jones and Newman (eds), Horror: 100 Best Books 8.

        The Works OF 1833

      Rev. John trusler - Londra 1833 - THE WORKS OF WILLIAM HOGARTHin a series of engravings with descriptions and a comment on their moral tendency by the REV. JOHN TRUSLERLondon 1833William Hogarth fu non solo il più famoso pittore del Settecento inglese, ma anche il creatore di una scuola satirico-moralista anglosassone, dimostrando ai suoi concittadini che come strumento di satira il pennello o la matita sono più efficaci della penna. Dodato di forte personalità e di indiscutibile talento, introdusse nelle sue opere un piacevole ed al tempo stesso sferzante senso caricaturale che mise in ridicolo le follie, gli abusi le stravaganze e le cattiverie della società inglese dei suoi pempi. Le magnifiche tavole incise in acciaio dai più valenti artisti dell'Ottocento Inglese (Samuel, Davemport, William Henry Worthingston, Tomas Phillibrown,Charlese Mottramm eec) raccolgono il corpus della produzione artistica di questo maestro della pittura inglese e rendono un artistico tributo alla sua incomparabile arte; questo pregevole testo in due volumi illustra i motivi e le finalità di ciascuna opera delle 108 tavole originali fuori testo.CAPOLAVORO DELLA'RTE DELLA STAMPA E DELL'INCISIONE INGLESE DEL XIX SECOLO.Due volumi, in 4° mezza pelle e angoli.

        SPOTTED OR CANADA GROUSE. [SPRUCE GROUSE].

      London. 1833. - Handcolored engraving with aquatint and etching by R. Havell, 1833, paper watermarked "J. Whatman / 1836." Plate CLXXVI [176] from the first edition of THE BIRDS OF AMERICA. Sheet size: 37 3/4 x 25 3/8 inches. Two very small neatly repaired marginal tears, else very good. A fine print of one of the rarer and very elusive game- birds of the northern States. A group of two male and two female Spruce Grouse (Canachites canadiensis) are shown on the edge of undergrowth that includes painted trilliam and twisted- stalk. They all look warily about, the male in the foreground takes fright at an imagined danger. "Audubon went to the state of Maine to observe the habits of this dark, secretive grouse and, although he succeeded, the task, he admitted, was perhaps as severe as any he ever undertook. 'These breeding grounds,' he wrote, 'I cannot better describe than by telling you that the larch forests, which are there called "Hackmetack Woods," are as difficult to traverse as the most tangled swamp of Labrador.We sunk at every step or two up to the waist, our legs stuck in the mire and our bodies squeezed between the dead trunks and branches of trees, the minute leaves of which insinuated among my clothes, and nearly blinded me.We saved our guns from injury, however, and seeing some of the Spruce Partridge before they perceived us, we procured several specimens.' There is some evidence that the spruce grouse may not be as abundant today as it was in earlier times. It is no longer easy to find, at least in the southern parts of its range" - Peterson.

        American Ornithology; or, the Natural History of Birds inhabiting the United States, not given by Wilson

      Samuel Augustus Mitchell [vol I]; Carey, Lea & Carey [vols II & III]; Carey & Lea [vol IV], Philadelphia 1833 - 19th-century black half morocco over green cloth-covered boards, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and fourth, the compartments bordered in gilt with double fillets, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Provenance: Juliette Clary (inscribed by Bonaparte on the vol. I title, "Offert par l'auteur a sa Cousine Juliette") A very fine set of the first edition, first issue of this important American ornithological work, inscribed by Prince Bonaparte to his cousin and with additional uncoloured states of the plates in volume four. Bonaparte's important continuation of Wilson's American Ornithology describes 60 birds not in the original work. "A love for the same department of natural science, and a desire to complete the vast enterprise so far advanced by Wilson's labors, has induced us to undertake the present work," Bonaparte writes in the preface, "in order to illustrate what premature death prevented him from accomplishing, as well as the discoveries subsequently made in the feathered tribes of these States." "The work which had been performed by Wilson's hands alone now gave employment to several individuals. Titian R., the fourth son of Charles Wilson Peale, not only collected many of the birds figured while on the Long expedition, which were credited to Thomas Say, who originally described them in footnotes scattered through the report; or in a subsequent private trip to Florida during the winter and spring of 1825, under the patronage of Bonaparte; but also drew the figures engraved for the first, and two plates for the fourth and last volume. A German emigrant by the name of Alexander Rider, of whom little is known beyond that he was a miniature painter in 1813, and a portrait and historical painter in 1818, was responsible for the remainder of the drawings with the exception of the two figures of plate 4 of volume I." (Frank L. Burns, On Alexander Wilson ). That plate, the Great Crow Blackbird, is notable as being the first book appearance of any engraving after John James Audubon. Perhaps the most influential artist involved with the work, however, was Bonaparte's master engraver Alexander Lawson, arguably the most talented ornithological engraver in America at that time. Three issues of the first edition of Wilson's continuation have been identified. This fine set is comprised of the rare first issue of vol. 1 (with the Mitchell imprint and containing the first issue of plate 6 in that volume (see Ellis/Mengel) and with first issues of volumes two through four (published by Carey & Lea and printed by William Brown). Carey & Lea later reissued the first volume, with their own imprint, after purchasing the rights to the publication from Mitchell in 1828. The third issue includes volumes reprinted by T.K. and P.G. Collins (with their imprint replacing that of William Brown) for Carey & Lea with unchanged dates on the titles but actually printed in about 1835 after the completion of the final volume. We are aware of the existence of only one other inscribed set of Bonaparte's Ornithology to have appeared on the market in the last 30 years, inscribed to the Count Charles de Chatillon.

      Carey & Lea, Philadelphia 1833 - First American Edition. 2 volumes, 12mo. Publisher's original muslin-backed paper-covered boards. About Good. Spines and boards worn, scuffed, soiled, stained, chipped and faded, corners bumped. Paper label of vol. 1 present but illegible, only traces remain of label on vol. 2. Contemporary ink and pencil ownership name and owner's inscription on title of vol 1, and additionally on several pages scattered through text of novel. Vol 1 has foxing and considerable spotting throughout. Vol. 2 has considerable foxing to front and rear pastedowns, more lightly foxed elsewhere. Complete with the preliminary ad leaf in Vol. 1, the biographical notice of the author, and all preliminary and terminal blanks called for by Gilson. 1250 copies printed. An unaccountably scare book, surviving copies of the American Northanger Abbey are far less common than any of Carey & Lea's other 1830s Austen titles [or for that matter the 4-vol 1818 Murray edition of 1750 copies, which appears regularly on offer]. According to Gilson, the last US copy to appear at auction was at Sotheby's in 1915, fetching "the extraordinary sum of one shilling." We have been able to trace only one other complete copy on offer in commerce for almost a century. In his census, Gilson lists only eleven copies known, of which three are rebound, vol. 2 of another lacks its spine and has been cut down, and two copies are ex-circulating libraries.

        Massika (study for Tableaux #3 of Travels in the Interior of North America)

      St. Louis 1833 - Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833.

        The geology of the south-east of England. Presentation copy

      Longman [etc.], London 1833 - Mantell, Gideon (1790-1852). The geology of the south-east of England. [iii]-xix, 415pp., lacking half-title. 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!).

        The Geology of the South-East of England.

      London: Longman Rees Orme Brown Green & Longman 1833 - First edition, xix, [1 blank], 415, [1]pp., frontispiece, hand-coloured folding map, and 5 lithographed plates (1 folding), illustrations in text, plates somewhat spotted, old library stamp to title & several leaves of text, cont. half calf, marbled boards, neatly rebacked with morocco label. Gideon Mantell (1790-1852) was an English physician and geologist best known for pioneering the scientific study of dinosaurs. After an apprenticeship to a local surgeon in Sussex, Mantell became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1811. He developed an interest in fossils, and in 1822 his discovery of fossil teeth which he later identified as belonging to an iguana-like creature he named Iguanadon spurred research into ancient fossils. This volume contains the results of Mantell's research into the geology and fossil remains of south-eastern England, especially Sussex and Kent. Mantell describes each rock stratum of the region in detail, and includes within each section descriptions of fossil remains found in the formation, arranged by species. Copiously illustrated, this volume remains one of Mantell's best known works and contains fascinating detail concerning the development of geology and palaeontology.

        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.

      . . Erweiterte Ausgabe mit 78 Beschreibungen von Berufen und dem Anhang: "Representations and descriptions of the principal machinery used in the manufacturies of Great Britain". Der Anhang ist insofern von Bedeutung als er die rasante industrielle Entwicklung Großbritannien berücksichtig. Sind im Hauptteil fast ausschließlich traditionelle Berufe aus Handwerk, Dienstleistung und Handel berücksichtigt, gibt der Anhang einen Einblick in die Welt der Industrie, stellt diverse Maschinen vor etc. Gedacht war das Werk wohl für angehende "Handelsmänner" um ihnen einen Einblick in die "praktische Wirtschaft zu geben". Ein umfangreicher (500)a am Ende beigefügter Fragenkatalog untersstreicht den Charakter des Lehrbuchs. Beschrieben und schön illustriert werden u.a. folgende Berufe: Apotheker, Bäcker, Brauer, Buchdrucker, Buchbinder, Buchhändler, Chemiker, Dreher, Friseur, Glasbläser, Gärtner, Juwelier, Kaufmann, Optiker, Papiermacher, Schmied, Schneider, Schuster, Tischler, Töpfer, Uhrmacher, Wagner.

        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.

Louisiana is shown, but not Texas. With nine insets: the Vicinity of Philadelphia, Washington, Charleston, Boston, New York, Cincinnati, Albany, New Orleans, and the Falls of Niagara. Canals and early railroads are shown. The map folds into original tooled and gilt covers. Facing the map is the folding index sheet.

Map with one minor split at a fold; index sheet near fine. Folding case very good. Much better than usually found.
