The author's eventful life including his services in the Canada Company, travels in America, founding the city of Guelph, Upper. Canada. In 1824, Galt was appointed Secretary to the Canada Company, a charter company established to aid in the colonization of Upper Canada. While in Canada, Galt lived in Ontario, where he founded the city of Guelph in 1827. The community of Galt in Ontario was named after him. His three sons played prominent roles in Canadian politics; one of them, Alexander, was one of the 'Fathers of the Confederation', and Canada's first Minister of Finance. During his tenure with the Canada Company, Galt ran afoul of several colonial authorities, including Sir Peregrine Maitland,who was Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada at the time. He was heavily criticised by his employers for his lack of basic accounting skills and failure to carry out their established policies. This resulted in his dismissal and recall to Great Britain in 1829. Soon after his return to England he was imprisoned for several months for failure to pay his debts. One of Galt's last novels, The Member, has political corruption as its central theme. Despite failing health, Galt was involved in another colonial business venture, the British American Land Company,which was formed to develop lands in the Eastern Townships of Lower Canada. Galt served as secretary but was forced to resign in December 1832 because of his health.He retired to Greenock in Scotland, publishing his two volume Autobiography in 1833.

        Manuscript Letter Book of John Atkinson, Bellows Falls, Vermont, 1833-1838

      Bellows Falls, 1833-1838, 1833. Bellows Falls, 1833-1838. Manuscript letter book of John Atkinson (1775-1838), eldest son of the pioneering merchant and philanthropist whose name he inherited, John Atkinson (1742-1823). A substantial record, largely dealing with the sale and financing of land, 310 pages, plus 3 page index of names. Titled and paginated in his hand, letters span from 5 August 1833 to 22 May 1838, only a few weeks before his death. All are written at Bellows Falls, Vermont. Indication of moisture to boards, otherwise very good condition, internally clean and bright, fascinating records in a neat hand. Together with an important and substantial book on the history of the area, which features genealogies of its founders, remarkably detailed historic data, as well as the bookplate, signature and an inscription of a descendent of two of Bellows Falls pioneer families, the Flemings and the Atkinsons. Bellows Falls: Published by the Town, 1907. "History of the Town of Rockingham Vermont including the Villages of Bellows Falls, Saxtons River, Rockingham, Cambridgeport and Bartonsville 1753-1907 with Family Genealogies." Author: Lyman Simpson Hayes 8vo. xvi, 850 pages. Publisher's original green cloth, gilt tooled to front, titled in gilt to spine. Occasional annotations in pencil, minor wear to extremities, otherwise in very good condition, with the bookplate and inscription of Edward Cary Fleming, native to Bellows Falls and grandson of Colonel Alexander Fleming. Atkinson's name is seen profusely in the book, as he was involved in many aspects of commerce and development in Bellows Falls. Transactions too numerous to mention, John Atkinson, son of John Atkinson the first, in this volume records early land transactions and communications pertaining to financing, law, title claims, deed contracts, inheritances, etc. Evidently the writer is a land broker, lawyer, or both, is well versed and knowledgeable on the subjects at hand as so many figures sought his expertise and assistance. Even a cursory glance provides remarkable highlights, such as, matters of a subdivision of land in New York dating back to 1797, a letter to the Land Office in Boston which addresses George W. Coffin (later mayor of Lynn, Massachusetts) regarding Legislature Acts and a soldier's rights, research of early deeds and their entitled heirs, a request from Deacon John Holbrook of Battleboro in Vermont for maps and information about land in Canada which had been conveyed to his father (John Atkinson), and correspondence to abolitionist David Putnam in Marietta, Ohio, in 1837. On 13 December 1833 letter is written to John Adams Perkins, Canadian attorney in Montreal, which seeks a detailed statement of account of services rendered by him in the sale of Atkinson family properties across the border. In Canadian currency, at the time British Pounds, costs include highway tax and land tax, advertising and consultation fees, even portage fees. Correspondence with Perkins is relatively frequent. Cash currency was the standard form of payment, although as seen in at least one instance, a cash receipt may have been forfeited for saleable gelding horses on a delinquent account. Among more complex matters, some of the letters are for soliciting payment, outlining account status, offering empathetic leniency in times of depression, identifying lot and numbers the numbers of acres. Includes several charts of payments and interest. A few letters also reveal the disbursement of some of the holdings amassed over decades by his own father, Vermont pioneer and philanthropist. The volume houses a plethora of correspondence which ultimately reveals financial and social information about numerous great American forefathers, many of which have become giant household brand names today, a meager sampling of names includes Truman, Trapp, Camden, May, Johnson, Jackson, Allen, Campbells, Loomis, Cooper, Ford, etc. Folks addressed in these letters are widespread, from Philadelphia, New York City, across Vermont and West Virginia, Ohio, New Hampshire, and north as far as Canada. John Atkinson (1742-1823) was a English merchant active in colonial trade, who came to America during the American Revolutionary War, earned great wealth and respect as a merchant in Boston and New York City, and was instrumental in the development of Bellows Falls in Vermont. The philanthropist was a chief investor and constructor of the Bellows Falls canal which was built from 1791 to 1802. He also contributed greatly as one of the first benefactors of the Immanuel Church Cemetery by providing the land for it, and owned a saw mill in the area. Atkinson was an incorporator, in 1799, and initial owner of the first postal road through the village, known as the Green Mountain Turn-Pike. Born in Kirby Moorside, Yorkshire, England in 1742, Atkinson's first overseas voyage took him to Boston in 1771, where he was engaged in the mercantile business until about 1776. A Loyalist, Atkinson emigrated to Halifax, Nova Scotia, with his wife and young son, John, when the British evacuated Boston in March of 1776. Returning to England only for a short period, he established himself in New York City in the winter of 1777-1778. During this period he made frequent trips to Bellows Falls, where he settled a second home, and to London, until finally in 1791 the family's American citizenship was restored. He settled and prospered immensely as a New York merchant until June 1819. Atkinson purchased large tracts of land in West Virginia, Ohio, and Vermont, among other states and territories, but also was generous in supporting the immediate future of his new nation. From his own capital, Atkinson contributed financial advances to Rhode Island claims for the payment of Revolutionary soldiers, which was never repaid to him. Atkinson, originator of the Bellows Falls canal, died in his residence in 1823, which was later occupied by Colonel Alexander Fleming, who was the agent of the Canal Company for forty-seven years, and also husband to Atkinson's daughter Emma Seton. The published book, described above, bears the ownership inscription and bookplate of Edward Cary Fleming, the colonel's grandson, born in Bellows Falls 1826 to the colonel's fourth child, Samuel Cary. The Manuscripts Division, William L. Clements Library, in the University of Michigan, holds a collection of John Aktinson papers. .

A System of Penal Law, For the State of Louisiana: Consisting of A Code of Crimes and Punishments, A Code of Procedure, A Code of Evidence, A Code of Reform and Prison Discipline, A Book of Definitions. Prepared Under the Authority of a Law of the Said State. To Which are Prefixed a Preliminary Report on the Plan of a Penal Code, and Introductory Reports to the Several Codes Embraced in the System of Penal Law. Philadelphia: James Kay, Jun. & Brother, [1833]. v, 745 pp. Octavo (9" x 5-3/4"). Recent period-style quarter calf over cloth, blind fillets and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Small chips to margins of two leaves with no loss to text. Negligible light foxing in places, interior otherwise clean. Handsome. * Second edition, one of two printings issued in 1833. (The other has the date on the title page.) A comprehensive system of criminal law which, while not adopted in the United States, is still influential today because it is the first complete penal code built on Jeremy Bentham's principles of codification. First published in 1828, Hicks marvels at the scope and clear organization of this code and notes that Bentham, Hugo, Lafayette, Story, Marshall, Madison, Kent and Jefferson considered it "the most comprehensive and enlightened system of criminal law that has ever been presented to the world." A notably humane code, it is important for its advocacy of prevention rather than punishment. Livingston was a senator from Louisiana and later a member of Andrew Jackson's cabinet.

        Spotted or Canada Grouse [Spruce Grouse] [Plate 176]

      London: R. Havell, 1833. Hand-coloured engraving with aquatint and etching. Paper watermarked "J.Whatman/1836." Two very small neatly repaired marginal tears. Fine gilt frame. 37¾ x 25 3/8 inches. 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.

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.

        The Regimental Histories of the Coldstream Guards from Formation to the Conclusion of the Great War, in superb uniform Exhibition Bindings by Zaehnsdorf

      London and Oxford: Richard Bentley; A.D. Innes & Co.; & the Oxford University Press,, 1833-1928. 8 volumes octavo (between 219 × 140 mm and 251 × 191 mm). Early twentieth-century red full morocco exhibition bindings by Zaehnsdorf, raised bands, titles gilt to second and fourth compartments, imperial crown, regimental crest, and Tudor rose devices gilt to first, third and fifth respectively, dates to tails of spines, large regimental crest gilt to the centre of all boards, Tudor rose corner-pieces, double fillet edge-rolls, top edge gilt, the others uncut, wide turn-ins with septuple ruled panels, dark blue silk doublures. The Zaehnsdorf exhibition stamp in blind to the rear doublure of each volume. All plates, some coloured, and maps, many folding, as called for. A little rubbing at the extremities, spine of Hall's 1885-1914 history a little sunned, some light scattered foxing, the plates of Ross-of-Bladensburg's 1815-1895 volume with mild hygroscopic tide-mark in the upper margins, but overall a handsomely-presented, and excellently-preserved set. All first editions as issued, the titles are as follow; MacKinnon, Origin and Services of the Coldstream Guards, 2 volumes, 1833; Ross-of-Bladensburg, A History of the Coldstream Guards, 1896; Davies, The Early History of the Coldstream Guards, 1924; Hall, The Coldstream Guards, 1885-1914; Ross-of-Bladensburg, The Coldstream Guards, 1914-1918, 2 volumes and map volume. A wonderful run of the official historical record of Britain's longest continually serving regiment, 'nulli secundus [second to none]' indeed. From MacKinnon's scrupulous and well-referenced essay at an account down to Waterloo, probably the best such history of the nineteenth century, down to Ross-of-Bladensburg's model First World War regimental. Ownership inscriptions of Christopher W. Gurney dated on 5th July 1917, the day on which he was commissioned at Second Lieutenant in the regiment, he resigned as a full lieutenant in 1920.

A dampstain in upper right corners of plates, not affecting the image. Text clean and fine.. First appearance of John Herschel's importent star cataloque recording many new observations of Binary Stars. John Herschel (son of William Herschel) began his astronomical career by re-measuring a number of William Herschel's double stars. "The first results of this work was a catalogue, with detailled measurements, of some hundred double and multiple stars (published in 1824), which formed a valuable third term of comparison with hisfather's observations of 1781-82 and 1802-03, and confirmed in severalcases the slow motions of revolution the beginning of which had been observed before. A great survey of nebulae followed, resulting in a cataloque (1833) -the item offered - of about 2500. of which some 500 were new and 2000 were his father's, a few being due to other observers; incidentally ore than 3000 pairs of stars close enough to be worth recording as double stars were observed."(Arthut Berry in "A short History of Astronomy"). - Parkinson, Breakthroughs: 1833 A

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

      1833. 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. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Recent quarter morocco-stamped calf over marbled boards, lettering pieces and gilt fillets to spines. Small inkstain to fore-edge of first volume, light toning to text. * 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, Legal Bibliography (1847) 669-670.

Dialysis defined and named for the first time. * Thomas Graham (1805 - 1869) Scottish chemist, achieved pioneering work in dialysis and the diffusion of gases. He became a professor of chemistry at numerous colleges, including the Royal College of Science and Technology and the University of London. He founded the Chemical Society of London in 1841. His studies on the diffusion of gases resulted in "Graham's Law", which states that the rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of its molar mass. His discovery of dialysis was the result of his study of colloids. This work resulted in Graham's ability to separate colloids and crystalloids using a so-called "dialyzer", the precursor of today's dialysis machine. This study initiated the scientific field known as colloid chemistry, of which Graham is credited as the founder.

        [St. Leger. Passing the Judges' Stand] Doncaster Races. To the Noblemen and Gentlemen of the Turf and the Subscribers to the Great St. Leger Stakes, this print representing the Horses passing the Judges Stand, is most respectfully dedicated by their Obedient and most obliged Servants, S. and J. Fuller

      London: S. & J. Fuller, 'Oct 25 1833' [but watermarked '1864']. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by R.W. Smart and C. Hunt. 13 5/8 x 24 inches. A fine image of the horses passing the judges' stand, heading toward the finish "Passing the Judges' Stand" is a pair with "The Horses Starting for the Great St. Leger.." (#18678) The St Leger, known world wide as the oldest classic turf race, was first entitled 'A sweepstake of 25 guineas' and was not given its present name until 3 years later. It was first run on 25 September 1776, as a sweepstake of 2 miles on Cantley Common in Doncaster. (Colts to carry 8 stone and fillies 7 stone 12 pounds). The first race was won by Allabaculia, a brown filly, owned by the Marquess of Rockingham. The second horse past the post was owned by a military gentleman, Lt Colonel Anthony St Leger, of Park Hill estate, near Firbeck, 9 miles from Doncaster. There is some controversy over the naming of the St Leger, some claim it occurred over a meal at The Red Lion in the Market place, others claim it was at the Salutation on South Parade, others at Warmsworth Hall or at Wentworth Woodhouse, the seat of the Marquess of Rotherham. When it was suggested that it should be called the Rockingham Stakes, the Marquess is said to have replied, ' No it was my friend St Leger who suggested the thing to me - call it after him.' The first official St Leger, was won by Hollandaise ridden by George Herring and owned by Sir Thomas Gascoigne.James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. "A stream of coaching paintings followed, many of which he engraved himself. From 1821 he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeplechasing on purpose-made courses, many recording the prowess of the few professional and more amateur riders of the day... [In all his work Pollard took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works and] it is Pollard's large racing scenes which really take off and into which one can gaze and discover a microcosm of the turf" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.146) Lane British Racing Prints p.149; Selway James Pollard p.45; Siltzer p.221

        Vorlesungen über die Geschichte der Philosophie. Herausgegeben von Karl Ludwig Michelet. 3 Bde.

      Berlin, 1833-36. 8vo. Three beautiful, contemporary, uniform Danish half calf bindings with richly gilt spines (in the style of Kierkagaard's favourite book binder N.C. Möller). Leather a bit "cracked" and a black spot to the back board of volume one. With the book plate of the philosopher Anton Thomsen. Occasional brownspotting. Without the title-pages for "Werke. Vollständige Ausgabe", as usual when contemporarily bound. Pp. (III) - XX, 418, (1, -errata) pp.; pp. (III) - VI, 586 pp.; pp. (III) - VIII, 692 pp.. First edition of Hegel's seminal "Lectures on the History of Philosophy", which was published posthumously by Michelet. The work comprises Hegel's nine lectures on the history of philosophy, given in Jena in the winter of 1805-6, Heidelberg in the winters of 1816-17 and 1817-18, Berlin in the summer of 1819 and the winters of 1820-21, 1823-23, 1825-26, 1827-28 and 1829-30. Just before his death, in November 1931, Hegel had begun his tenth lecture course on the history of philosophy, but only get two give the first two hours of it. The work is based on Hegel's own lecture manuscript from Jena, which is stilized throughout and written in full ("er wagte damals noch nichts dem freien mündlichen Vorträge zu überlassen", -Michelet, Preface, p. VI), his shorter draft written in Heidelberg meant for further development at the lectures as well as number of later endorsements and additions written in the margins of the two manuscripts and on loose leaves ("Diese Blätter sind von unschätzbarem Werthe, weil sie die höchst reichen Zusätze aller Vorlesungen spätere Jahre durch seine eigene Handschrift dokumentieren", Michelet, Preface, p. VI). Besides this, a number of lecture notes from learned students, including those of Michelet and the other "Freunde des Verewigten", have been used to establish the text as correctly as possible. These highly influential lectures, which attracted philosophers from all over Europe, make up a cornerstone in the philosophy of Hegel, and his view on the history of philosophy is something that understreams all of his thought. These lectures, and not least the publication of them after his death, have seminally influenced later philosophy, and the following fifty years after Hegel's death were philosophically, culturally and historically much indebted to them. It is the Hegelianism that also springs from Hegel's lectures on the history of philosophy that carries historicism, the conception of cultural and social relations as products of history, through the 19th century
