        AN APPEAL IN FAVOR OF THAT CLASS OF AMERICANS CALLED AFRICANS

      Boston: Allen and Ticknor, 1833. First Edition. 8vo, pp. 232, engraved frontispiece of a praying slave inserted with two full page plates in the text, quotation of S.T. Coleridge on the title-page. Light stain to flyleaves, some foxing to the margins of the frontispiece, o/w the text is good and clean. Contemporary ownership signature of Mary Ann Ingalls on the top of the title page. Bound in original cloth (little rubbed and a couple of nicks to the cloth and the edge of the spine label which is complete. This is a better than average copy of a book usually found in tough condition. See Work p. 299; Dumond p. 28; Sabin 12711; Imprints 18214; BAL 3116. With the errata slip noted by BAL. Scarce. Child (1802-1880) was born in Medford, MA. She was a close friend and influence on Margaret Fuller. Throughout her life, she devoted herself and her writings to the anti-slavery and feminist movements. Child's first book, Hobomok, written when she was 21, is an interesting foreshadowing of her future concern about racial and religious tolerance. In the story, set in Salem in 1630, a young white woman marries a Pequod Indian, Hobomok. Mrs. Child was an active abolitionist, and here denounces laws against miscegenation, unequal education, and the like. This book created a furor in Boston and alienated the author from polite society. "While converting many, it also aroused condemnation, bringing the author financial ruin and social ostracism"[Blain p. 202].

        A Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains.

      London: [for the author], 1831-[1833]. - Folio (20 4/8 x 14 inches). 80 fine hand-colored lithographic plates, by and after Elizabeth Gould, after sketches by John Gould (some minor spotting). Contemporary half maroon morocco, gilt, all edges gilt (rebacked preserving the original spine, scuffed). First edition, first issue, with the backgrounds of the plates uncolored. Gould's first major work produced after his acquisition of a collection of bird-skins from the Himalaya Mountains: "the work scored such a great success that Gould continued for the rest of his life to publish large uniform monographs and faunas all on the same lines" (Anker, 168). Gould acknowledges the help of Vigors in confirming the nomenclature of the birds and their descriptions. Initially employed as a taxidermist [he was known as the 'bird-stuffer'] by the Zoological Society, Gould's fascination with birds from the east began in the "late 1820s [when] a collection of birds from the Himalayan mountains arrived at the Society's museum and Gould conceived the idea of publishing a volume of imperial folio sized hand-coloured lithographs of the eighty species, with figures of a hundred birds [as here]. Gould's friend and mentor N. A. Vigors supplied the text. Elizabeth Gould made the drawings and transferred them to the large lithographic stones. Having failed to find a publisher, Gould undertook to publish the work himself; it appeared in twenty monthly parts, four plates to a part, and was completed ahead of schedule. "With this volume Gould initiated a format of publishing that he was to continue for the next fifty years, although for future works he was to write his own text. Eventually fifty imperial folio volumes were published on the birds of the world, except Africa, and on the mammals of Australia-he always had a number of works in progress at the same time. Several smaller volumes, the majority not illustrated, were published, and he also presented more than 300 scientific papers. "His hand-coloured lithographic plates, more than 3300 in total, are called 'Gould plates'. Although he did not paint the final illustrations, this description is largely correct: he was the collector (especially in Australia) or purchaser of the specimens, the taxonomist, the publisher, the agent, and the distributor of the parts or volumes. He never claimed he was the artist for these plates, but repeatedly wrote of the 'rough sketches' he made from which, with reference to the specimens, his artists painted the finished drawings. The design and natural arrangement of the birds on the plates was due to the genius of John Gould, and a Gould plate has a distinctive beauty and quality. His wife was his first artist. She was followed by Edward Lear, Henry Constantine Richter, William Matthew Hart, and Joseph Wolf" (Gordon C. Sauer for DNB). "Fine Bird Books (1990) p. 101; Nissen 374; Sauer 1; Wood p. 364.

Remarkable collection of 40 print series of ornamental architectural designs nearly all by the most important and imaginative ornament engraver of the 17th century, the famous French architectural designer Jean le Pautre (1618-1682). It includes designs for altars, altar-pieces, church portals, tabernacles, gateways, doors, chimneys, wall decorations, wainscotting, cabinets, ceilings, fountains, frames for paintings, armorial ornaments, grotesques, vessels and vases, etc. His work served as models for architects, sculptors, silversmiths, engravers and others, so that the present collection gives an excellent overview of Paris fashions at the beginning of the reign of Louis XIV, not only in architecture and interior decoration but also in the decorative arts in general.With an owner's inscription at the head of the first plate, by the Antwerp author on gardening, mushrooms and food, Franciscus van Sterbeeck, dated 20 February 1670. Binding worn and cracked with the leather flaking and the last quire slightly loose. Interior very good, with only occasional minor stains.

        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. [ 3 volumes.]

      Boston: Hilliard, Gray and Co.; and Cambridge: Brown, Shattuck, and Co., 1833. Three volumes. 8vo. [Leaves 23 cm tall.] xxxiv, [2], 494; [2], 555; and [2], 776 pages. Contemporary full calf with gilt-lettered red-leather spine labels. Ex-Sondley Reference Library with each volume showing evidence of call number removal at base of spine, a bookplate on the front pastedown, embossed stamps on a few leaves including title, and ink number stamp on verso of title and in margin of one other leaf. Wear, rubbing, and stains to bindings; surface of leather peeled away in several places on the boards; some superficial cracks to leather on spines. All hinges are intact. Light to moderate scattered foxing in first two volumes, becoming more persistent and heavier in parts of the third volume, but in no place affecting legibility. A few spots and a very thin tideline evident on the preliminaries of the first volume. It is unusual to encounter a complete set of this work in original bindings, regardless of condition. While hardly pretty, this is a sturdy, serviceable set with a good Southern provenance. The signed ownership inscription of Nicholas Washington Woodfin, of Asheville, North Carolina, appears on the front pastedown of the first volume and indicates that he paid ten dollars for the set in Jan. 1837. Woodfin also signs the other two volumes on the front pastedowns. [Woodfin (1810-1876) was a prominent lawyer, successful planter, five-term North Carolina State Senator (1844-1854), and the namesake of the town of Woodfin in his native state. As a legislator, he was a noted advocate of public education and internal improvements. Woodfin opposed secession until Lincoln's call for troops, then represented Buncombe County at the state secession convention and superintended the North Carolina Salt Works during the war. During Reconstruction, he continued the practice of law, advocated for scientific agriculture and industrial development to revive the economy, expanded tobacco and dairy production, and fought corruption as a member of the commission that investigated the fraudulent practices of the Western North Carolina Railroad Company.] The set was later owned by North Carolina collector, Forster A. Sondley, and bears his gilt-lettered leather ownership labels, at the base of each spine (showing some chips). FIRST EDITION. A landmark of American jurisprudence. Joseph Story (1779-1845) served as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1812 to 1845. Nominated at age 32, he was the youngest person ever appointed to the Supreme Court. Following Marshall's leadership and collaborating closely with him, Story fought for the supremacy of federal law and the expansion of national powers. While Marshall wrote most of the majority opinions during his tenure, Story contributed several notable decisions including Martin v. Hunter's Lessee (1816) and United States v. The Amistad (1841). When Taney became chief justice, Story was often at odds with the new Jacksonian majority but provided some significant dissents. He was also a Massachusett's state legislator, an adviser to Daniel Webster, and a bank president. Furthermore, Story was "the nation's most important and prolific legal scholar and the major professor at Harvard Law School, where he helped train a generation of new lawyers... His publications became the basis for many private law libraries. Attorneys throughout the nation, unable to get recent reports of cases, relied on Story's Commentaries for their understanding of the law. In his writings, even more than in his court opinions, Story shaped the development of American law. " --ANB. "Commentaries on the Constitution" was his most important book and the authoritative work on constitutional law during the 19th century. The first volume is a review of the constitutional history of the nation, from the colonial period to the adoption of the Constitution, together with a discussion of the nature of the Constitution and rules for its interpretation. The remainder of the work is a detailed, clause-by-clause analysis of the Constitution providing "a full exposition of all of its provisions, with the reasons, on which they were respectively founded, the objections, by which they were respectively assailed, and such illustrations drawn from contemporaneous documents, and the subsequent operations of the government, as may best enable the reader to estimate for himself the true value of each." --vol. I, p. 2. In praise of the work, John Gage Marvin wrote: "The judicial station of the author, his opportunities for hearing constitutional questions mooted and settled, for the last quarter of a century, his habits of patient and thorough investigation, give a weight and value to Judge Story's writings upon Constitutional Law, which few similar works can claim... [It] is written with great candour, and characterized by extended research, and a careful examination of the vital principles upon which our government reposes." --Legal Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law, 2914. Howes S1047. Sabin 92291. See AI 21380.

      Ad 1: BAL 2519; Berlin Kat. 312; Guilmard 72; Millard I, no. 98, vol. 1.2; WorldCat (7 copies, with varying number of plates); ad 2: Fuhring, Ornament prints in the Rijksmuseum (953-957; lacking plate 5); cf. BAL 1833.8; Berlin Kat. 313.8. Ad 1: rare series of engravings of Roman art and architecture after drawings made by the French draughtsman Adam Philippon during his travels in Italy. "Adam Philippon was Jean Le Pautre's teacher, and the present suite was, in part, etched by Le Pautre after his master. It is thus among Le Pautre's earliest work. ... The remains of the present suite was apparently etched by another of Philippon's pupils, Gabriel la Dame ... The number 26 is given by Guilmard as the number of plates for which Le Pautre was responsible, but ... the exact number for which Le Pautre was responsible remains uncertain. ... In 1640 Philippon had been one of a group of artists sent to Rome with Roland Fréart by Louis XIII to try to persuade Nicolas Poussin and other artists to return with them to France. It is probable that the young Le Pautre travelled with him" (BAL). Ad 2: very rare early impression of a series of 6 plates, each with two designs for friezes, decorated with acanthus scrolls, tritons and other figures, by the most important and imaginative ornament engraver of the 17th century, the famous French architectural designer Jean le Pautre (1618-1682). With some pencil drawings, owner's notations in ink on the verso of the dedication and a crude copy in red ink of a drawing on the back of the plate facing plate 34. The right corner of the opening flyleaf torn-off and lacking the closing flyleaf. The last plate slightly wrinkled, some minor thumbing throughout and a minor waterstain in the margins of the first and last few leaves, otherwise in good condition.

        SUPREME COURT OF THE U. STATES. JANUARY TERM, 1833./ MAYOR, ALDERMEN, &C. OF THE CITY OF N. ORLEANS, DEFENDANTS AND APPELLANTS, VS. THE U. STATES, COMPLAINANTS AND APPELLEES. / CASE FOR APPELLANT.

      1833?], [np: 1833 - 10, [2 blank] pp. Caption title [as issued], stitched, untrimmed, partly uncut. Minor dustsoiling on untrimmed edges. Else crisp and bright. Near Fine. This is the Brief, submitted to the United States Supreme Court, by the City of New Orleans. The City and the United States each claimed title to the same area of "vacant public land." The City sought to sell it. The United States objected on the ground that the land, "formerly belonging to the Crowns of France and Spain successively, passed by treaty to the United States." The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana enjoined the sale. The City appealed. The City's Brief, an unusually detailed examination of its chain of title beginning in 1720, argues that ownership of the disputed lands did not vest in the United States under the treaty to purchase Louisiana; and that the "original plan of the City" left those lands "for the use of the inhabitants." The Supreme Court agreed. Its opinion, by Justice McLean of Ohio, is officially reported at 35 U.S. 662 [1836]. Daniel Webster and Edward Livingston-- who had spent years fending off U.S. claims to New Orleans alluvial lands-- represented the City; Attorney General Benjamin Franklin Butler was counsel for the United States. OCLC records only facsimiles, as of August 2016, evidently from an original residing at the Harvard Law School.

        The Journal of a Voyage from Calcutta to Van Diemen's Land [with] Illustrations to Prinsep's Journal of a Voyage from Calcutta to Van Diemen's Land, from Original Sketches taken during the years 1829 and 1830

      London: Smith Elder, 1833. Text volume: original cloth binding rubbed, some wear at extremities, a few spots but generally in good original condition. Illustrations volume: one pair of wrappers just slightly darkened, spines of the two parts neatly renewed; plates in fine state.. Complete set comprising: Text, duodecimo, with a folding map as frontispiece, original cloth binding with paper label to front; and Illustrations, two parts quarto, with ten superb coloured views and an engraved plan of Hobart, in the original illustrated titling-wrappers, in a fitted cloth case. One of the scarcest Australian view-books and a famous Tasmanian rarity. This is a most attractive set of the best of several versions, with the text in its original cloth binding accompanied by the two rare volumes of views in their special printing on India Paper (indicated by the word "India" in manuscript on the wrappers) and the plates in their beautiful coloured form. (There were also issues of the Illustrations volumes on ordinary paper or with the plates uncoloured.) In their coloured form these plates can be seen to their best advantage, none more so than the superb large folding panorama of Hobart Town."Mr and Mrs Augustus Prinsep were members of a large English merchant family living in Calcutta. After an extended visit to Van Diemen's Land between 1829 and 1830 Augustus Prinsep died unexpectedly. Mrs Prinsep published a short account of their travels under the title The Journal of a Voyage from Calcutta to Van Diemen's Land in London in 1833 as a memorial of their last trip together. In a note at the end of that slim duodecimo volume she advised that a set of illustrations to the voyage would be published if there was any public interest. Clearly there was, since that same year a set of ten fine lithographs was issued in two parts, quarto, to accompany the text... Seven of the plates are of Van Diemen's Land and three are of Penang and Angir" (Wantrup). The plates are lithographed by Hullmandel, some of them acknowledged to be after original drawings by Mrs Prinsep herself and others unsigned, while the three non-Tasmanian scenes are after drawings by her brother-in-law Captain Thomas Prinsep of the Royal Engineers. The full series of plates is as follows:1. Angir2. Penang3. View of Hobarton from Beaulieu Lodge4. Hobarton from the Hotel5. The Black Snake Inn6. New Norfolk7. The Great Tree Penang8. Panoramic view of Hobarton9. Hobarton10. New Norfolk from the Governor's House11. Plan of Hobarton. Provenance: Private collection (Sydney).

      - J. de Vries et al., Cat. der letterkundige nalatenschap van wijlen Jacobus Konig, vol. 1 (manuscripts), 29 April-3 May 1833, lot 19. A beautifully produced manuscript, probably prepared for publication but apparently never published, listing more than a thousand events of historical importance (including the birth and death dates of important people) with a special emphasis on Dutch artists. The main text forms a calendar with two days per page, listing events for the relevant day from many different years. Although it includes events going back to 17 AD, most entries date after the Union of Utrecht (1579) gave birth to the Dutch Republic and many give the birth or death dates of Dutch artists. The book was compiled by the Amsterdam apothecary Joannes Dylius (ca. 1746/47-1807) and has its origins in a similar publication by the famous historian of the Dutch Revolt, Geeraert Brandt, Daghwyzer der geschiedenissen (1689), and a new version compiled by Govert Klinkhamer, Dagwyzer der geschiedenissen (1775). Writing of the "Rocaille-and-flower bindery", Storm van Leeuwen notes the relatively small number of bindings known and continues: "If instead we concentrate on the quality of the decoration on those splendid bindings and on the tooling technique, we see a binder who was adept at both skills as well as being a man of taste".From the collection of Jacobus Koning (1770-1832), scholar and devotee of Dutch history (especially the history of books and printing), literature and art. With a small tear repaired in the frontispiece, but otherwise in fine condition. The binding is worn at the hinges and corners, but still very good, with the tooling clear and well preserved. A beautiful and beautifully bound manuscript, especially interesting for its record of Dutch artists.

Theodore Clapp, Before the Mississippi Presbytery, At Their Sessions in May and December, 1832. New Orleans: Printed and Published by Hotchkiss & Co., 1833. xiv, 374 pp. Octavo (9-1/4" x 5-1/4"). Contemporary quarter cloth over plain boards, printed paper title label to spine. Light soiling and a few minor stains to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners, which are bumped, chipping to spine label. Some toning to text, occasional light foxing, brief early annotations in pencil to a few leaves. Ex-library. Location label to foot of spine, bookplate to front pastedown, small embossed stamp to title page. A nice copy of a scarce trial. $750. * Only edition. Clapp paid a heavy price for his gradual rejection of Calvinist views and embrace of Unitarian principles. He spent seven stormy years at the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans, affiliated with the Mississippi Presbytery, which finally convicted him of heresy in 1832. This is the record of his trial, preceded by a reprint of a sermon concerning the trial, "on the Subject of Religious Liberty," by William Ellery Channing, the foremost Unitarian preacher and theologian of the early nineteenth century. It warns of the evils of religion when it turns into "tyranny," as exemplified by the Mississippi Presbytery. Indeed, says the introduction, "no Presbytery in the United States ever before had the moral turpitude, the hardihood, the utter recklessness of justice, evinced by the Mississippi Presbytery" (xiv).

Frizes feuillages ou Tritons marins antiques et modernes.Paris, P. Mariette, [ca. 1664]. Series of 6 numbered engraved plates, each with two friezes . 2 series in 1 volume. Small folio (26.5 x 18.5 cm). Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment.

      - Ad 1: BAL 2519; Berlin Kat. 312; Guilmard 72; Millard I, no. 98, vol. 1.2; WorldCat (7 copies, with varying number of plates); ad 2: Fuhring, Ornament prints in the Rijksmuseum (953-957; lacking plate 5); cf. BAL 1833.8; Berlin Kat. 313.8. Ad 1: rare series of engravings of Roman art and architecture after drawings made by the French draughtsman Adam Philippon during his travels in Italy. "Adam Philippon was Jean Le Pautre's teacher, and the present suite was, in part, etched by Le Pautre after his master. It is thus among Le Pautre's earliest work. . The remains of the present suite was apparently etched by another of Philippon's pupils, Gabriel la Dame The number 26 is given by Guilmard as the number of plates for which Le Pautre was responsible, but the exact number for which Le Pautre was responsible remains uncertain. In 1640 Philippon had been one of a group of artists sent to Rome with Roland Fréart by Louis XIII to try to persuade Nicolas Poussin and other artists to return with them to France. It is probable that the young Le Pautre travelled with him" (BAL). Ad 2: very rare early impression of a series of 6 plates, each with two designs for friezes, decorated with acanthus scrolls, tritons and other figures, by the most important and imaginative ornament engraver of the 17th century, the famous French architectural designer Jean le Pautre (1618-1682). With some pencil drawings, owner's notations in ink on the verso of the dedication and a crude copy in red ink of a drawing on the back of the plate facing plate 34. The right corner of the opening flyleaf torn-off and lacking the closing flyleaf. The last plate slightly wrinkled, some minor thumbing throughout and a minor waterstain in the margins of the first and last few leaves, otherwise in good condition. The binding slightly soiled and wrinkled, with a couple minor smudges and tears, but still firm.
