Though widely attributed to Gleig, Sabin quotes Babcock refuting this: "a careful examination of the volume . . . makes it perfectly clear that Gleig could not have written it."

      n.p., n.d. Two pieces of red brick, oddly shaped, each approximately 1? x 0.5? x 0.5?, housed in a 2.75? high, 1.75?-diameter base, 19th century bottle sealed with a cork. From the John S. Reigart Collection of Historical American Relics. Inside bottle is a label neatly penned by John S. Reigart: ?Piece of Brick / from / Washington?s / First / Head Quarters / in the City / of New York / 180 Pearl St.?John S. Reigart was born in 1833 or 1834 in New York City where he resided for most of his life. By occupation, he was a bank clerk with very precise penmanship which is evident on his identification label. During the mid and late 19th century Reigart assembled a comprehensive collection of relics from every period of America?s history. He was clearly aware of the importance of provenance of all the pieces in his collection and included detailed documentation in the form of period ink script notes, most of which he attached to the actual artifacts. About ten years ago, Reigart?s collection was discovered

        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. Clean and bright throughout.

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.

Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. 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.

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.
