        Sense and Sensibility.

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1833 [but 1832]. Octavo. Original purple glazed linen boards, twin black spine labels lettered in gilt, green silk page marker. Engraved vignette title and frontispiece by William Greatbach after Ferninand Pickering (tissue-guards intact). Armorial bookplate of J. B. Gibson to front pastedown. With the 8 pp. publisher's ads, including advert for an edition Shakespeare to appear in January 1883 (not noted by Gilson). Spine very slightly faded, a few marks to covers, odd faint spot to contents. An excellent copy. First Bentley edition, in the first issue binding, the third edition overall (pre-dating the first American by a few months), 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. XXIII. 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).

      MARYPORT CUMBRIA ENGLAND UNITED KINGDOM 1833 - On offer is an unparalleled pair [2] of manuscript notebooks and early Georgian Era relics of British maritime and nautical art and history hand written and drawn by Kelsick Wood and family a Maryport England ship builder, figurehead designer and chandler whose significant journals detail the 'behind the scenes' aspects of shipbuilding and ship rigging and supplying all manner of ships' stores and repairs in the early part of the 19th Century. The journals are filled with quotes for work on a variety of vessels [including Mary Jones, Sloop Mary, Postlethwaite, Eliza Heywood, Sylla, Snow Magnet, James Ray, Sterling, Widows Friend, Wilton Wood, Coeur de Lion and many, many more], costs of materials including teak and oak, orders for anchors, ropes, rigging, sails and accounts etc. But what makes this extraordinary historical manuscript into the category of true rarity are the dozens and dozens of superb illustrations; portraits, group scenes, figureheads, ships, animals, mythical creatures and exotic African princesses and 'Britannia' herself and so much more littered throughout most relating to a particular ship, some drawn in situ, we surmise for use at a later date. Some of these drawings which include two loose black and white sketches one in pen and ink another in pencil range from character studies to coats of arms portraits and several figurehead designs. The skill of the artist is nothing short of remarkable. His portraits bring to life the clients and characters he deals with or records for future reference and given his limited palette he does a superb job. The books: 'No 3' [titled on the cover] a notebook used by Kelsick Wood a provincial Ship builder from Maryport from c1835 onwards detailing many aspects of his work. Included are a variety of small sketches/ illustrations on manuscript pagination as follows 28 pages prelims including a thumb index alphabetically and approximately 122 pages most paginated once for each pair of facing pages - one or two pages trimmed leaving only the top halves of the pages - one portrait neatly cut out. 135mm x 188mm. 'No 4' [title on the cover] dated in the front in manuscript K Wood and Sons October 1833 with a small sketch of the vessel Wilton Wood, contains a similar mixture of day to day accounts and a variety of sketches - in both note books it is not clear whether these sketches were intended designs actually commissioned or whether these were just ideas or even a sketch of the actual figureheads of vessels the ship builder worked on. 26 pages prelims with a thumb index alphabetically and 136 pages. 135mm x 188mm. The pair contain approximately 144 pages with at least a single sketch - others have groups of sketches some others are full page, ten designs for figureheads but many other sketches of other aspects of details of proposed work including several partial details of various vessels sterns. EDITOR'S NOTES: We note that The Royal Museums at Greenwich have a private account book which belonged to Kelsick Wood for the period 1839-40 recording similar details to the above - details of Ships built and the purchase of materials etc. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

        Histoire chirurgicale du siège de la citadelle d'Anvers ; extrait des Mémoires de médecine militaire, t. XXXIV.

      Paris, Imprimerie de Mme Huzard (née Vallat de La Chapelle) 1833 - in-8, [2] ff. n. ch (titre, dédicace), 372 pp., demi-veau cerise à coins, dos lisse orné de chaînettes dorées et de fleurons à froid, pièce de titre prune, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale de cette relation qui marque la deuxième expérience marquante de Félix-Hippolyte Larrey (1808-1895), fils du célèbre chirurgien de la Grande Armée : reçu docteur en médecine dès 1832, il suivit cette même année son père dans la toute jeune Belgique, pour l'assister dans l'organisation du service de santé militaire que le roi Léopold avait confiée au baron Larrey. Puis il fit fonction d'aide-major pendant le siège d'Anvers en 1833, et ce sont les événements médicaux et militaires auxquels il participa qu'il raconte dans notre ouvrage. Comme l'on sait, il poursuivit une brillante carrière médicale dans le sillage de son père. Précieux exemplaire du maréchal Jean-de-Dieu Soult (1769-1851), alors ministre de la guerre de Louis-Philippe, avec envoi autographe de l'auteur. Soult et Larrey père se sont connus au moins pendant la Guerre de la Péninsule. L'ouvrage passa ensuite dans la collection du baron René Reille (1835-1898, cachet humide), petit-fils de Masséna, ce qui fait quand même deux belles provenances napoléoniennes. Bel exemplaire.

        Atlas de l'Europe, 165 feuilles echelle 1/600.000, dessiné par Henry Perkin, gravé sur pierre sous la direction de P. Doms par F. Charles et L. Boulens.

      Bruxelles, Etablissement Vandermaelen, 1833. Tre giganteschi volumi in folio massimo, frontespizio e 165 fogli con plan d'assemblage, 2 indici e 162 carte geografiche litografate su carta grave, con greca geometrica di riquadro e confini colorati. Leg. in m. pergamena coeva. Dorsi con qualche menda alle cuffie. Interno con 4 o 5 tavv. con difetti o restauri solo marginali. Inoltre varie tavv. lievemente brunite. Opera e monumentale ed assai travagliata che impegnò l'Etablissemente del Vandermaelen per oltre 4 anni. L'ambizione del suo editore di rappresentare l'intero continente ad una scala uniforme e la novità assoluta di ricorrere alla stampa litografica (il Vandermaelen fu infatti il ptimo ad adoperare questo procedimento su vasta scala) quando tutti gli atlanti erano ancora stampati con lastre di rame, ebbe un notevolissimo impatto in tutta Europa ed anche negli Stati Uniti. L'Atlante è qui presente nel-l'introvabile stesura originale di 165 fogli (infatti fu ristampato nel 1840 in solo 100 fogli di carta più leggera, sempre alla stessa scala, ma eliminando l'Islanda, la Lapponia e le parti periferiche della Russia). A causa degli alti costi di realizzazione - e conseguentemente dell'alto prezzo di vendita - non ebbe il successo finanziario sperato dall'editore-stampatore. All'Italia sono riservate 14 tavole. Lavoro superbo e di eccezionale rarità. Woodward, Five Centu-ries of Map Printing, pp. 102-104. 22.

        Plan of London From Actual Survey, 1833

      London: United Kingdom Newspaper. Map. Steel engraving. Image measures 21.5" x 32" Map. Steel engraving. Image measures 21.5" x 32". This map of London issued by the United Kingdom Newspaper provides an astounding amount of information about the city in 1833. Making use of the fine detail possible with the new technology of steel engraving, the map meticulously illustrates and labels buildings and streets at a small size, extending south from Regents Park to the Surrey Zoological Gardens and east from Hyde Park to the commercial docks. A decorative geometric border sets the map off from a surround of vignettes depicting 33 of the city's architectural landmarks--including the Bank of England, Lambeth Palace, Covent Garden and Waterloo Bridge--also with remarkable fineness. At the top of the map, the title flanks an elaborate cartouche that combines seals, coats of arms, flags, and other symbols of the British Empire. Such fanfare reveals the scope and power of the city at this point in history, which would only increase in the following decade with the completion of the Thames Tunnel, the world%u2019s first underwater tunnel, shown here under construction. The United Kingdom Newspaper celebrated this achievement by issuing the map free to its readers, an offer also made possible by the highly durable plates of steel engraving. The map is in good condition with some toning, offsetting, and wear to the folds. Small tears in the paper's edges not affecting the image. The print's quality and detail shine through these common signs of wear. John Shury was a British engraver and printer who worked with the publishing firm known as the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, or SDUK. This firm was formed in 1826 and published low cost maps with the goal of reaching a large market while still maintaining high quality and precision.

        Die Durchschneidung der Archillessehne, als Heilmethode des Klumpfusses, oder durch zwei Fälle erläutert (pp.195-218, mit 1 gefalteten, doppelblattgr. Kupfertafeln).

      Rust's Magazin, 39. - Berlin, Georg Reimers, 8, 1833, 582 pp., mit 2 Kupferstichtafeln, Pappband d. Zeit gutes Exemplar. Paradigmawechsel: Beginn der modernen Orthopädie ERSTE AUSGABE. Originalbericht über eine der großen Pionierleistungen der modernen Orthopädie, der subkutanen Tenotomie. 5 Jahre! vor dem Erscheinen seiner berühmten Arbeit "Beiträge zur operativen Orthopädie, Hannover 1835", berichtet Georg Friedrich Stromeyer (1804-1867) hier erstmalig über seine am 28. Febr. 1831 durchgeführte Operation an dem 19-jährigen Georg Ehlers, sowie über die zweite Operation vom 12. Juni 1832. Ganz offen erwähnt Stromeyer die Verdienste von Delpech. Die Erfolge Strohmeyers waren wesentlich in seiner Nachbehandlung (Extensions-Apparate) begründet. Die Operation allein führte zu keiner Heilung des Übels. -Es ist heute überhaupt nicht vorstellbar wie hilflos die Ärzte Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts dem Klumpfuß gegenüber standen. "Noch im Jahre 1835 wurden in einer deutschen chirurgischen Klinik Klumpfüße amputiert und der Dirigent sprach den Satz aus, wahre Klumpfüße werden nicht geheilt und müssen amputiert werden!" Nur so ist es verständlich mit welcher Begeisterung die neue Methode überall aufgenommen wurde. Die subkutane Durchschneidung der Achillessehne war ein neuer Hoffnungstrahl, an dem sich Tausende Unglücklicher, die sich bisher mit ihrem Schicksal abfinden mußten, aufrichteten.

        Voyage autour du monde par les mers de l'Inde et de Chine [exécuté sur la corvette de l'État La Favorite pendant les années 1830, 1831 et 1832, sous le commandement de M. Laplace, capitaine de frégate, publié par ordre du ministre de la marine].

      Paris Arthus Bertrand -35 1833 - First edition. 6 volumes comprising: Text volumes 1-4 (without the zoology volume.) 8vo. , "Atlas hydrographique" (with 11 large engr. maps) large folio, and "Album" of Laplace's voyage,folio, with 72 magnificent aquatint plates depicting views, costume and maritime scenery, light foxing, mostly marginal in the "Album". Contemporary red half-morocco gilt (text vols.), atlas volumes bound to match, a fine set. "Perhaps the finest series of plates of any of the picturesque voyages" (Sabin). The album consists of of sixty-one landscape views including three of Australia (the Derwent River, Vooloo-Moloo, Sydney Harbour), two of Rio, four of Malacca, two of Singapore, several of Isle Bourbon, India, the Philippines, China and New Zealand. Apart from the views the remaining plates depict the exotic costume of the countries visited. Interestingly the Laplace atlas is the only one of French Pacific "Grand Voyage" historical atlases to have been executed in aquatint. The publication of this work was entrusted to Sainson who prepared a number of the drawings and personally supervised the printing of the plates. Laplace (1793-1875), born at sea, joined the navy as a midshipman and rose though the ranks. In December 1829 Laplace was commissioned to take an expedition to India, the East Indies, and South East Asia, and then if he chose, to proceed to the South Pacific. His instructions were to provide protection for French merchant vessels and obtain at each port-of-call information which might be of value to French trade. The voyage stopped at Mauritius, the Seychelles, Podicherry, Malacca, Singapore, Manilla, Canton, Indochina, and Java, before sailing for Tasmania, reaching Hobart in July 1831. After he went to Sydney, New Zealand, and the Bay Islands where the French crew developed an aversion to the Maori after seeing them eat human flesh after a battle. The Favorite arrived back in Toulon after rounding Cape Horn, completing 482 days at sea. The Favorite covered some 56,000 miles on her twenty-eight month voyage. Her mission according to Hill, was "not to amuse the natives with trinkets but to show the French flag in eastern and other waters in order to re-establish French influence over Indo-China and the Pacific". As such, her voyage is perhaps best seen to complement Bougainville's circumnavigation. Important scientific results were also achieved, particularly by the naturalists and surveyors, the former returning to France with many new species.

        The Naval achievements of Great Britain from the Year 1793-1817.

      London Jenkins c. 1833 - Quarto (38 x 30 cm), dedication leaf (ii), introduction (viii), list of plates (ii), 148pp letterpress, subscribers list (ii) engraved title with hand-coloured vignette, 55 fine hand-coloured aquatint plates, uncoloured outline etching of the Bombardment of Algiers and Battle of Trafalgar at rear, plates watermarked "Whatman 1833" , bound without the portraits as is usual; some occasional light spotting and offsetting, the plates are generally clean and bright. Contemporary red half morocco, gilt ruled, marbled boards, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered; spine faded, a little rubbed. Attractive example of the finest pictorial record of the naval engagements of the Napoleonic Wars. The present edition contains several plates of Britain's most significant victories during the Napoleonic wars. These include two plates on the Battle of the Nile, two plates on the Battle of Copenhagen and three plates on the Battle of Trafalgar. The Abbey copy lists two portraits not present here, but the plate count of coloured aquatints of sea battles accords. "As a record of naval events spanning a period of over twenty years Jenkins' Naval Achievements has no precedent. At no time prior to 1817 had a publisher attempted such a complete volume of documentary naval prints. It is the quality of the accuracy which makes Jenkins so valuable above all, and it is the pictures rather than the text to which the value can be attributed." (Roger Quarm, the National Maritime Museum). These Napoleonic encounters at sea are arguably the best and most attractive plates of their kind. Abbey Life 337. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Map of the United States constructed from the latest authorities

      C.S. Williams, New York 1833 - Engraved folding pocket map, period hand-colouring in outline, statistical table in lower left corner. Folding index sheet. Folds into publisher's cloth-backed paper boards, titled on upper cover "Williams' Travellers' Directory.". (Boards worn, some repaired separations at folds). Scarce map depicting the U.S. as far west as the Rockies. This small "Travellers Directory" (as it is titled on the upper cover) was evidently issued in competition to Mitchell's similar guide of the same year. The two guides are quite similar in terms of format (folding sheets of tables facing a folding map), but the map in the present guide extends significantly farther west, i.e. to present-day Arizona in the southwest (with the Gila River named) and present-day Idaho in the northwest (with Lake Wayton, i.e. Lake Coeur d'Alene, named). Longs and James Peaks are both named, as well as the apocryphal River Buenaventura. Texas is shown as Mexico, although is named as the area along the Gulf Coast of eastern Mexico from Galveston to the Sabine River. The map is generally similar in appearance to Melish's 1822 map of the U.S., but with significant differences in nomenclature. Williams would later jointly publish the maps of Texas and Mexico in Mitchell's New Universal Atlas of 1846. Streeter Sale 3847. Not in Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West.

        The Cabinet of Natural History, and American Rural Sports with Illustrations

      J. and T. Doughty, Philadelphia 1833 - Three volumes. vii,[1],298,[2]; vii,[3],292; 96pp. Text in two columns. Three uncolored steel-engraved titles with vignettes, two uncolored steel-engraved portrait frontispieces, and fifty-seven plates (three uncolored). Contemporary three-quarter dark green morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt; volume three rebound to style in a modern binding. Extremities lightly worn; head of spine on second volume slightly chipped. Bookplate on front pastedowns of first two volumes. First Major American Color Plate Sporting Book A scarce complete set of the American Rural Sports containing the "first colored sporting prints made in America" (Henderson), including twenty-three original lithographs by Thomas Doughty, the founding father of the Hudson River School. The Cabinet of Natural History , "an amalgam of natural history, sporting accounts, travel narratives, and practical advice for the countryman" (Reese), was started by the brothers Thomas and John Doughty in Philadelphia. It was issued in monthly parts and ran from the end of 1830 until the spring of 1834 when it abruptly ceased publication. The first volume (made up of twelve parts) was certainly the work of both Doughty brothers, with virtually all the plates being the work of Thomas, but, by the time the third part of the second volume had been issued the partnership had been disbanded. Thomas had moved to Boston to pursue his career as a painter, and as of May 17, 1832, John Doughty was the sole proprietor. Evidently Thomas' input was sorely missed and by mid-summer John was advising his subscribers that unless the level of support improved he would have to discontinue the publication. In the end, the periodical continued for almost another year before John Doughty's prediction was fulfilled and the publication came to a sudden halt with part IV of the third volume. The abrupt termination of the third volume accounts for its great rarity, with most extant sets comprised of only the first two volumes. Despite its relatively short life, The Cabinet of Natural History left behind an important legacy as the "first major sport print color plate book produced in America" (Bennett). The prints contained within the work are among few by Thomas Doughty, a significant American artist. "Of all the predecessors to [Thomas] Cole and his followers, the single artist who could most reasonably claim Cole's mantle as the founder of the [Hudson River] school is the appealing figure of Thomas Doughty, who at one juncture was hailed as 'the all-American Claude Lorrain'"' - Howat, p.31. As a painter Doughty "holds a place unique among artists of this country as having initiated the American discovery of the American landscape" (Looney). His importance as a printmaker, however, has yet to be fully recognized or adequately defined, for though "there are many prints to which Doughty's name is attached as artist only, there are only a few for which he was initially completely responsible.These are the 23 lithographs made specifically for Volume I of. The Cabinet of Natural History " (op. cit.). Doughty initially trained as a leather currier but by 1820 was listing himself in the Philadelphia City Directory as a landscape painter. "He was restless?energetic.gifted.[and] was popular almost from the start. People obviously liked his vision of a benevolent natural world.He exhibited frequently in Philadelphia and elsewhere" (op.cit.). His work was engraved for use in various publications from the early 1820s onwards, but his "major contribution to the world of printmaking, however, lies not in the 40-odd illustrations taken from his paintings and drawings but rather in the plates he himself made for [the present work]" (op.cit). American lithography was still in its infancy when the Doughtys began their periodical, and it is not clear where Thomas learned the art. "He proved himself an able practitioner in the plates of Volume I of the Cabinet , which are important as the first sporting prints in color [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Ehrenberg was unable to regard the "Körner" or "Kugeln" he described as cells, with all that implied because the necessary conceptual resources for that inference had still to be formulated. In Ehrenberg's own terms, however these "granules" did possess a definite theoretical significance: that helped to discredit a notion put forward by others, that the gray matter of the brain was a homogenous, amorphous mass." Clarke & Jacyna, pp.60-61 "Purynie gave Ehrenberg the credit for first showing the existence of "ganglionic granules (Körner) in the ganglia this discovery had instigated the investigations by Purkyne himself to ascertain the complete topography of these structures in the nervous system. He was struck by the "Analogie" between Ehrenberg's granules and those found in the cerebral hemispheres as well as in the other parts of the brain, such as the cerebellar cortex where he discovered what was later to be known as "Purkyne's cell."

First Edition of the "Surgical Observations on the Restoration of the Nose and on the removal of polypi and other tumours from the nostrils: from the German ...

" M. Felix FreshwaterThe above work is a translation, prepared by physician and medical writer John Stevenson Bushnan (1807-1884), of the section on rhinoplasty from Dieffenbach's Chirurgische Erfahrungen (1829-34). Bushnan augmented Dieffenbach's text with annotations, accounts of his own cases and an important, well-documented history of rhinoplastic operations.Bushnan "gives a very full account of Dieffenbach's techniques-particulary for raising up and reconstruction a sunken nose by "Dividing into portions of the remain (if any) of the old organ, raising them from the cavity , making needful additions , and securing them by appropriate fastenings." Thomas J.S. PattersonDieffenbach'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] 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. 321-322.Dieffenbach pioneered many methods and principles of plastic surgery which "have not been improved upon and are still constantly employed" Gnudi & Webster, p. 321.*) Zur Seltenheit - Eduard Zeis schreibt im Nachtrag zu 669: "Da ich das Buch selbst niemals selbst gesehen habe, .."Zeis No. 513, 669 Zeis Index No. 531, 733 Garrison & Morton 5743 (note) M.

Colebrooke, Richard Lander offered his services to Lieut. Clapperton and remained with him until his death in 1827. Lander returned to England with Clapperton's papers, but before long was en route for West Africa once again, this time with the aim of tracing the course of the Niger. With his wife provided with a government annuity of 100 pounds per year during his absence, and with an additional 100 guineas promised to Lander himself on his return, he set out with his younger brother from Portsmouth for Cape Coast Castle in January 1830. They reached the Niger itself in June at Boussa where Mungo Park had died, and began their great journey by travelling one hundred miles up stream. It took the expedition two months to return to their starting point, before they began the dangerous voyage to the ocean. In the following months they were held to ransom and their expedition supplies were plundered but by 1st December they were in Fernando Po having reached the mouth of the great river in the Bight of Biafra. On their return to England the brothers Lander were greeted with popular acclaim and Richard Lander became the first recipient of the Royal Geographical Society's gold medal. John Murray offered one thousand guineas to the brothers for their journals which were edited by Lieut. Belcher of the Royal Navy. [Attributes: First Edition]

Four supplimentary title-leaves lacking in the first part.Very rare in complete condition. The list of subscribers lists 99 copies, of which only 58 are for private customers. The first part treats the selection of raw materials - oak - and the plates give detailed instructions on how to recognize the strong and weak timber, respectively. Part two and three describes the shipbuilding as such and as a consequence the plates in these parts have a character of instructional drawings. The concluding plate shows the finished ship. Diderich Hansen Funch was one of the great shipbuilders of his time and was for example responsible for the Danish corvette Galathea, which circumnavigated the earth between 1843 and 1847. He also wrote books on the subject of shipbuilding, of which "Praktisk skibbyggerie" and "Dansk marine-ordbog" from 1846-52 are the two most important. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Washington [DC]: Printed by Gales & Seaton. Very Good-. 1833. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Very thick octavo volume. Contemporary full sheepskin leather, flat spine "paneled" by pairs of rules in blind, red leather label lettered in gilt in the second panel -- covers with a border constructed of decorative tooling in blind, plain endpapers. There are scuff and shallow gouges to the leather suface of the covers, and scattered foxing (both diffuse and little pin-points) affecting many of the text leaves -- as usual for paper used in official publications of the U.S. Congress of the time. 23rd Congress, 1st Session. Ho[use] of Rep[resentative]s. Executive. [Doc. No. 1 (through 49] This is the first volume, only (of six), of the complete set of the Executive Documents produced by the first session of the twenty-third U.S. Congress, during the administration of Andrew Jackson. As detailed at the beginning of the first section -- [an "Index to the Executive Documents... 43 pp.] -- this first volume contains Documents numbers 1-49. The first is the longest, and begins with Andrew Jackson's State of the Union Message, and then incorporates detailed reports from each department of the Executive branch controlled by the office of the President. This Document No. 1 consisted of 292 pages, and its first leaf serves as the title page for this volume, with a full imprint from Gales & Seaton in Washington. These partners were the official printers to Congress for many years. Joseph Gales, Jr. took over as sole proprietor of the 'National Intelligencer,' and after forming a partnership with his brother-in-law, William Winston Seaton, their newspaper started daily publication in 1813. It became the paper of record for Washington and the Federal Government, with a running account of the debates in both Houses. Four major threads run through this part of Andrew Jackson's eventful presidency: the finances of the country and the nature of the (second) Bank of America; the status of the War Department and the several branches of armed services; the ongoing program of "Indian Removal;" and foreign policy (relations, in particular, with Britain, France, Spain, Russia, Denmark, Belgium, the Two Sicilies, and Latin America). Document No. 2 is headed: "Removal of Public Deposites [sic] ... from the Bank of the United States." 42 pages, under the aegis of the Secretary of the Treasury [Roger B. Taney, a future Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court]. (Andrew Jackson's determined opposition to the Bank of the United States is still a matter of historical debate -- Document 21 is a protest from the Philadelphia Board of Trade against the removal of those Federal Government deposits). Document 12 is devoted to another significant response: "Memorial of H. D. Gilpin, Peter Wagner, John T. Sullivan and H. McElderry, the officially appointed directors of the Second Bank of America. 40 pp. There is a document No. 20] of great significance to the history of the U.S. Navy -- the entirely re-designed and rewritten Rules and Regulations of 1833, covering all possible details of Naval service, from specification of the uniforms, ranks and commands, pensions, arrests and courts martial, shipyards and quartermaster details, the Marines, etc. [107 pp.] Another of the most substantial documents is Number 26, the detailed report by the long-serving Third Auditor of the Treasury, Peter Hagner, "Claims of Certain Citizens of the United States for Indian Depredations." [117 pp. -- Peter Hagner was first appointed to the Treasury department in 1793 by George Washington, and served under every administration for fifty-six consecutive years, resigning his office in 1849! The details of these claims are printed in three horizontal columns across the pages, and represent an indispensable record of Native American studies. Hagner's remarks on each claim (printed in its own column) from his signficant position as Third Auditor of the Treasury, demonstrate that, whatever the slant of Andrew Jackson's determination to move vast numbers of the inconvenient native Americans of the south east U.S., at least one high officer of his government was taking an independent view of the details of each case of complaint. Document 45 details the granting of licenses to trade with the Indians. Among the various other matters of interest: Purcase by the U.S. of the Louisville and Portland Canal (in order to make it free of tolls); a Memorial from citizens of Pennsylvania, "praying for an appropriation to construct a canal from Chesapeake Bay to Lake Ontario; More canal matters included a substantial report on the Chesapeake and Ohio canal (begun in Washington by President John Quincy Adams turning the first shovel of dirt in 1826) -- (Documents Nos. 36 "Western Section"& 38 -- 24 pp.) There is a brief report from the Commissioner of the Public Buildings (with appropriations of $12,260.40 for alterations and repairs in the Capitol, but only $500. for the "President's House.") There are also documents requesting improvements to various waterways -- "Petition of sundry inhabitants of the northern frontier asking for an appropriation to improve the navigation of the St. Lawrence River." Railroads had not quite come under the scrutiny of Congress yet (but in June of the year of this volume, Andrew Jackson became the first President to ride a train). This thick volume is an unusual survivor of the official issue of the House Documents from this era. It is likely that most of these 49 documents were circulated individually at the time to interested parties. Many that were bound into nonce volumes by their first users have subsequently been broken up into their individual publications. Consequently, most copies of these public Documents which survive on the contemporary market have been disbound from volumes. But this officially bound and issued whole volume seems too interesting to break, having survived in its original form into the twenty-first century. Rare, thus. Various paginations -- the volume is nearly three-and-a-half inches thick. .
