        [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. Clean and bright throughout.

        Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States. 3 vols. 1833

      1833. First Edition of the First Comprehensive Study of the United States Constitution Story, Joseph [1779-1845]. Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States; With a Preliminary Review of the Constitutional History of the Colonies and States, Before the Adoption of the Constitution. Boston: Hilliard, Gray and Company, 1833. Three volumes. xxxiv, [ii], 494; [ii], 555; [ii], 776 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Original sheep, blind fillets to boards, red and black lettering pieces and blind fillets to spines. Light rubbing, somewhat heavier to spines, minor wear to spine ends and corners, a few stains and shallow scuffs to boards, early owner bookplate (of Arthur McArthur) to each front pastedown. Light toning to text, occasional faint spotting, faint dampstaining in a few places in each volume. A very nice unsophisticated set in the original bindings. Early owner inscription (of McArthur) to front endleaf of Volume II, brief annotations in his hand to a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. 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

        Habitans du Port du Roi Georges

      Paris: Tastu, 1833. Lithograph, 225 x 320 mm.; fine and mounted. Fine original lithograph from the official account of the Dunont d'Urville expedition, depicting a group of West Australian Aborigines roasting lizards over a fire. Louis de Sainson, the topographical draughtsman travelling with the expedition, made many detailed studies of the local inhabitants of King George Sound from 15 to 25 October 1826. King George Sound proved a perfect watering place for the expedition with an abundance of fresh water, firewood and a safe anchorage. A study was carried out involving overnight stays of Aborigines on board the Astrolabe as well as reciprocal visits ashore by members of the French contingent. This image was published as part of the official account of Dumont d'Urville's expedition in the Astrolabe and was included in the landmark Colonial Eye exhibition held at the Art Gallery of Western Australia in 1979.

        Surgical observations on the restoration of the nose. Inscribed to John Lizars, and from the library of Lawson Tait

      London: S. Highley, 1833. <p><i>Inscribed to John Lizars, and from the Library of Lawson Tait</i></p><p>Dieffenbach, Johann Friedrich (1792-1847). Surgical observations on the restoration of the nose; and on the removal of polypi and other tumours from the nostrils . . . with the history of physiology of rhinoplastic operations, notes and additional cases by John Stevenson Bushnan (1808?-84). 8vo. viii, [2], 9-159, [3, including ads]pp. 26 plates. London: S. Highley, 1833. 228 x 143 mm. (uncut). Original cloth-backed boards, rebacked, corners a bit worn. Edges of leaves a bit dust-soiled, unobtrusive library stamp on title and plates, but a fine copy. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Bushnan to John Lizars (c. 1787-1860) on the half-title: "Professor Lizars with John Bushnan&#39;s best regards." Bookplate of the Birmingham Medical Institute, noting that this copy was the gift of [Robert] Lawson Tait (1845-99).</p><p>First Edition in English of the rarest book in English on plastic surgery after Carpue&#39;s Account of Two Successful Operations for Restoring a Lost Nose (1816). The above work is a translation, prepared by physician and medical writer John Stevenson Bushnan, of the section on rhinoplasty from Dieffenbach&#39;s Chirurgische Erfahrunugen (1829-34). Bushnan augmented Dieffenbach&#39;s text with annotations, accounts of his own cases and an important, well-documented history of rhinoplastic operations. Bushnan presented this copy to Scottish surgeon John Lizars (see Garrison-Morton 6026), whose letter describing a rhinoplasty operation he had performed in 1831 is reprinted on p. 157; the case is illustrated in plate XXV. This copy later passed into the ownership of another Scottish surgeon, Lawson Tait, who is cited seven times in Garrison-Morton for his contributions to gynecological and plastic surgery.</p><p>Dieffenbach&#39;s clinical work in plastic surgery was "monumental in its variety, inventiveness and breadth of scope. . . .. Although Dieffenbach also used the Italian method of rhinoplasty, he preferred the Indian method because of the stronger quality of the forehead skin. . . . [He also] realized that the various metal contrivances of Tagliacozzi and von Graefe for shaping the new nose were largely ineffectual, and he devised many subsequent procedures for trimming and shaping the nose, thus greatly improving the results attainable by the Indian method" (Gnudi & Webster, pp. 321-22). Dieffenbach pioneered many methods and principles of plastic surgery which "have not been improved upon and are still constantly employed" (Gnudi & Webster, p. 321). Zeis 513. </p>

        New-York As It Is, In 1833; and Citizens' Advertising Directory.

      New-York: J. Disturnell, 1833. - Small 8vo., (4 7/8 x 3 3/8). Fine folding engraved map "of the City of New-York" by David H. Burr expressly for this guidebook, engraved by S. Stiles & Co. (short tear to mount, not affecting image). Original publisher's maroon roan, stamped in gilt (hinges split, unevenly faded to brown, a bit worn). Provenance: Manuscript ownership inscription of John H. Atkin to recto of front free endpaper. First edition. A nice example of an early New York guidebook. Contains the important folding map of New York, which includes lower Manhattan (up to West 34th Street), Brooklyn Heights (labeled "Brooklyn"), and Williamsburg. The map is drawn by David H. Burr (1803-1875), who served as the official topographer for the United States Post Office Department from 1832 until 1838, and the official geographer of the United States House of Representatives from 1838 until 1847. He is best known for his atlas of New York State. "The Atlas of the State of New York was published in 1830 [although it bears the date 1829]. It was the second state atlas produced in the United States; the very first was the 1825 'Atlas of the State of South Carolina' produced by Robert Mills. Although [Surveyor General Simeon] DeWitt provided information and sponsorship and put his powerful influence behind the project, the producer of the atlas was David Burr (1803-1875).The Burr 'Atlas ' is a landmark document that constitutes one of the most precise cartographic records of the state. It contains a general map of the state, a large plan of New York City, and maps of each county.The Burr 'Atlas ' marks a major change. The whole state, the major city, each and every county is depicted in a uniform style and scale, with accompanying standardized statistical information and narrative. The state is given shape and form and substance in the atlas. All the counties are now joined together, a civil union is complete, all the land is subdivided, the marks of progress are recorded and celebrated." (John Rennie Short, Representing the Republic: Mapping the United States 1600-1900, pp. 85-88). With contemporary ownership inscription of John Atkin, a watchmaker listed in the directory, along with his address.

        A Liberdade dos Mares, ou o Governo Inglez Descoberto ; Traduzido livremente do Hespanhol

      Rio de Janeiro: Miranda & Carneiro, 1833. Three parts in one volume, small octavo; occasional light spotting, else a fine copy in contemporary green quarter calf, gilt. Unrecorded reference to Botany Bay. The first edition in Portuguese of this unrecorded reference to Botany Bay. First published in 1789 in Paris, Barère de Vieuzac&#39;s La Liberté des Mers was an invective against the British government, whose maritime supremacy he described in such terms as "despotism" and "tyranny". This volume is a translation from a Spanish edition of Barère published circa 1820. In the Introduction, Barère charges the British with a multitude of crimes, including responsibility for the evils of the French Revolution; conspiring with American Indians to attack non-British settlers; aiding and abetting pirates; and exiling Irish and Scottish political prisoners to Botany Bay. This reference consists of seven lines of text which appear on p. xv: &#39;"Quem concebeo e executou o terrivel plano de desterrar para o arido Solo de Botany-Bay aos Irlandezes e Escocezes, e de assassinar em Hollanda, Italia, França e America todos os Virtuaosos patriotas, que sustentavão com energia a liberdade, e gloria de seu paiz". O Gevenrno Britanico&#39;. Barère (1755-1841) was born in Gascony and practiced law until elected to the States-General in 1789. Elected president of the Convention in December 1792, Barère presided over the trial and execution of Louis XVI. This is the first edition to have appeared in Portuguese. None of the editions in Spanish or French have been traced in Ferguson.

Dieses Gemälde August Richters orientiert sich der Mode seiner Zeit entsprechend an den Vorbildern Alter Meister, die bereits zum selben Sujet Werke hinterlassen haben. Auffällig ist dabei die Annäherung an den venezianischen Künstler der Hochrenaissance Palma Vecchio, doch dieses Werk hier wurde, trotz der Ãœbernahme vieler Elemente, anders akzentuiert. Die italienische Landschaft wurde zu einer sächsischen , statt eines Kusses wird der Moment der ersten Begegnung und der Erklärung seiner selbst sichtbar gemacht.

        Plan du Port et de la Rade de Montevideo, dans le Rio de la Plata, levé en 1831

      Paris: Dépôt Général de la Marine, 1833. Engraved map, two conjoined sheets measuring 655 x 988 mm. in total, fine condition. The original township of Montevideo in 1831. Splendid map of the coastline of Uruguay - with detail of the original city grid of Montevideo - from the golden age of French scientific hydrography. The map was produced by the French navy and published by the Dépôt Général de la Marine. Like the Admiralty Office in London, the Dépôt served both as a depository for marine charts and a publishing firm. The intention was to provide accurate and up-to-date charts for the use of the navy and merchant marine. The present example is remarkable for its detail and finesse of execution.

II, pp. 61-262). There are important references to conditions in New South Wales in this chapter, see for example pp. 112-23. See also Appendix no. 3: Part of a correspondence between the English Government and a body of individuals wishing to found a Colony&#39; (Ferguson). This appendix prints the extensive proposal forwarded to Viscount Goderich, then serving in the Colonial Office, by the South Australian Land Company on 4 June 1832. As might have been expected, and as Wakefield had always intended, a New York edition appeared in 1834.

        Two Expeditions into the Interior of Southern Australia, during the years 1828, 1829, 1830, and 1831: With observations on the soil, climate, and general resources of the colony of New South Wales, in 2 volumes, complete

      London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1833. First edition.. Both volumes have been expertly rebacked with original cloth laid on, light sunning to spine cloth, large folding map has rust stains to two corners on blank surface with no effect to printed side of the map, the original plum cloth and the text is bright and clean as are nearly all of the fine plates (only 3 engraved monochrome plates show light marginal foxing); this set is extraordinarily well-preserved, a near fine copy.. Pp. (1, half-title), (i-iii)-viii, (1, illustrations key), (ix)-lxxx, 1-219; pp. (1, half-title), (i-iii)-v, (1, illustrations key), 1-271, (16, ads); 2 engraved frontispiece illustrations, 1 very large folding map of Australia by Arrowsmith, 13 full-page engraved plates (4 are hand-colored plates of birds, 1 is map of Cape Jervis by Arrowsmith). Publisher&#39;s original plum textured cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, blue patterned endpapers, 8vo. Sturt&#39;s two expeditions described in these volumes, set out to explore the river systems of the interior of New South Wales. In the first expedition, Sturt and his party suffered considerably from the drought that gripped the interior of Australia: "the wretched appearance of the country, as we penetrated into it, damped our spirits." Birds were important to them chiefly as an aid to finding water. On one occasion they followed pigeons, on another terns, in both cases successfully. On the second expedition, which went down the Murrumbidgee and Murray rivers, they again suffered from water, but for a different reason: heavy rains brought a rise to the Murrumbidgee, and the men, already reduced from the rigors of the journey down the river, to get home had to row against a swollen current. However, in the course of the second expedition Sturt&#39;s party was able to collect more bird specimens, which they were preparing to bury for safekeeping, just as relief supplies appeared. These specimens "added considerably to the knowledge of birds in Australia" (Whittell, p. 694). See Whittell, p. 693-694 for an extensive discussion of this expedition; see also Wood 586. No ownership marks and few signs of use. It is very unusual to find these two volumes in the original plum cloth bindings and blue patterned endpapers as issued by the publisher.

        Two Expeditions into the Interior of Southern Australia

      London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1833. Two volumes, octavo, with a chart, a large folding map (repaired and backed on tissue) and plates (four depicting newly-discovered birds with original hand-colouring); a fine and handsome copy in half red morocco by Sangorski. Sturt&#39;s first major expeditions. Sturt&#39;s account of his first two expeditions, both of which yielded highly important discoveries about the geography of inland Australia. Sturt&#39;s first expedition set out from Sydney in 1828, with a brief from Governor Darling to follow the course of the Macquarie River. Within the first month he, and his second-in-command Hamilton Hume, had discovered the extent of the Macquarie Marshes. To the north they discovered and named the Darling River, and went on to trace the Bogan and Castlereagh rivers into the Darling, and the Macquarie into the Castlereagh. On his return to Sydney, Sturt pushed for command of an expedition to follow the Darling River to the supposed inland sea, however was instead commissioned to trace the Murrumbidgee River toward the south coast. Travelling along the river by boat, they were swept into a much broader fast-flowing river which they named the Murray, without realising it was the Hume River earlier discovered by Hume and Hovell. Sturt also discovered the junction of the Darling and the Murray, before reaching Lake Alexandrina. The most arduous aspect of the expedition awaited: after the vessel which was supposed to meet them on the south coast failed to materialise, Sturt and his men, with depleted provisions, were forced to row against the current for nearly one thousand miles to Sydney. They arrived in Sydney after many weeks of starvation and gruelling exertion. This is the first edition of Sturt&#39;s account of over four thousand miles of exploration over a four-year period. It was written while Sturt was in England, undergoing treatment for the blindness that had struck him during the voyage home. From the collection of Robert Edwards.

        Sydney. Etablissement principale de la Nouvelle Galles du Sud

      Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1833. Hand coloured aquatint view, 220 x 315 mm.; in fine condition, in bird&#39;s eye maple frame. A splendid view of Sydney Cove, made during the Laplace voyage. It shows Circular Quay brimming with ships, the well developed Rocks area and, in detail, Fort Macquarie, the present site of the Sydney Opera House. This was one of the views made on the voyage of the Favorite under Laplace&#39;s command. The aim of this grand voyage was to re-establish French influence over Indo-China and the Pacific, as well as to gather detailed trading information and hydrographic data. After a long and difficult voyage through Asia, they moored in Port Jackson during August and September 1831 for a recreational visit. The relaxed stay, in which "banquets and balls took up our time", gave the voyage&#39;s artist, Barthelemy Lauvergne, the opportunity to draw a beautiful series of detailed views of Sydney.

        Spotted or Canada Grouse [Spruce Grouse]

      R. Havell, London 1833 - A fine image from the Havell elephant folio first edition of Audubon's Birds of America. A group of two male and two female Spruce Grouse are shown on the edge of undergrowth that includes painted trillium and twisted-stalk. They all look warily about and the male in the foreground takes fright at an imagined danger. Peterson writes: "Audubon went to the state of Maine to observe the habits of this 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'" (R. T. & V. M. Peterson, Audubon's Birds of America , London: 1981, no.118). Susanne M. Low, A Guide to Audubon's Birds of America , New Haven & New York: 2002, p.113. Hand-coloured engraving with aquatint and etching. Paper watermarked "J.Whatman/1836." Two very small neatly repaired marginal tears. Fine gilt frame. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
