        Turkey and its resources: its municipal organization and free trade; the state and prospects of English commerce in the East, the new administration of Greece, its revenue and national possessions.

      London, Saunders and Otley, 1833. - 8vo. First edition. XV, (1), 328 pp. With lithographic map bound as frontispiece. First edition; flyleaf inscribed by the author to "Mr [.] Regnaudiu". Important overview of Turkish trade, resources, infrastructure and municipal organisation by the diplomat David Urquhart (1805-77). After two and a half years fighting in the Greek war of independence, Urquhart was invited to accompany Sir Stratford Canning to Constantinople in November 1831 as an advisor during negotiations to settle the Greek boundary. In 1832 Urquhart was sent to Albania to cultivate the support of Rechid Pasha, leading advisor to the Turkish sultan. Urquhart became a great supporter of Turkey, spending most of 1834 in the country, and encouraged the British government to ally itself with Turkey against Egypt. This substantial book was written to inform the British political class of the possible commercial benefits of an Anglo-Turkish alliance. - Some negligible toning to first few leaves. Very good, uncut in original grey paper-covered boards, spine with original printed label, light wear to extremities. Scarce, particularly in original condition as here. Goldsmiths’ 27883.

        The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments, in the common version. With amendments of the language, by Noah Webster

      New Haven: Durrie & Peck (Printed by Hezekiah Howe & Co.). Fair. 1833. First Edition Thus; First Printing. Hardcover. xvi, & 907 pages; The Holy Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, in the common version. With amendments of the language by Noah Webster, L.L. D. New Haven: Published by Durrie & Peck. Sold by Hezekiah Howe & Co., and A. H. Maltby, New Haven; and by N. & J. White, New York, 1833. "Printed by Hezekiah Howe & Co."--verso of title page. Bound in full contemporary sheepskin leather, four very shallow (false) raised bands on the spine, leather spine label lettered in gilt. Heavily worn, with damage to the spine and rear cover, and several loose leaves in the section of the "Psalms" -- but complete. The binding wear involves damage to the spine, which is missing a jagged section constituting approximately one third of the material, along the front gutter margin's edge; the rear board also has a rectangular section of leather missing at the fore-edge, both covers have rubbing. The endpapers have drawings by a child (ink on the front paste-down, pencil on the rear). The text leaves are toned and have stains and foxing scattered throughout, with the staining more intense in the final 50 pages. Four leaves at the center of the section of "Psalms" are entirely detached, with text complete but damage at some of the margins -- [these four constitute the gathering signed "58" = pages 457-464] ; the first page of "The Gospel by Luke" has a jagged vertical tear which has been repaired along the top two-thirds by sewing the two parts together with slender white thread. I think it necessary to point out that this copy, while not beautiful, has survived significant wear and tear, and remains complete. By 1833 when this Bible was published, its editor, Noah Webster (1758-1843) had written a number of books that were widely used in the schools of his day, including spelling-books, grammars, and histories. His long list of important books culminated with his famous dictionary, 'An American Dictionary of the English Language' (1828). One of his biographers called him "America's Schoolmaster," and, as such, he naturally turned his attention to one of the few books which were more influential than his own -- the Bible. Webster began work on this project in 1831, and publication of this now-scarce first edition occurred in 1833. Webster's Preface to his revision of the Bible is a significant document in the history of American usage of the English language, as one might expect. The binding wear involves damage to the spine, which is missing a jagged section constituting approximately one third of the material, along the front gutter margin's edge; the rear board also has a rectangular section of leather missing at the fore-edge, both covers have rubbing. The endpapers have drawings by a child (ink on the front paste-down, pencil on the rear). The text leaves are toned and have stains and foxing scattered throughout, with the staining more intense in the final 50 pages. Four leaves at the center of the section of "Psalms" are entirely detached, with text complete but damage at some of the margins -- [these four constitute the gathering signed "58" = pages 457-464] ; the first page of "The Gospel by Luke" has a jagged vertical tear which has been repaired along the top two-thirds by sewing the two parts together with slender white thread. I think it necessary to point out that this copy, while not beautiful, has survived significant wear and tear, and remains complete. Hills, English Bible in America: 826; Checklist of American imprints: 17779. Main text printed in double columns throughout. First, he has respectful praise for the King James version, and the antecedents which formed much of its text -- "In the present version, the language is, in general, correct and perspicuous; the genuine popular English of Saxon origin; peculiarly adapted to the subjects; and in many passages, uniting sublimity with beautiful simplicity. In my view, the general style of the version ought not to be altered." This last sentence helps explain why Webster, who knew Greek and Hebrew well, made fewer than the vast number of changes which might have occurred to someone merely out to make a thoroughly modern American version of the Bible. Webster proposed three categories of changes -- "1: The substitution of words and phrases now in good use, for such as are wholly obsolete, or deemed below the dignity and solemnity of the subject. 2: The correction of errors in grammar; and 3: The insertion of euphemisms, words and phrases which are not very offensive to delicacy, in the place of such as cannot, with propriety, be uttered before a promiscuous audience." In his Introduction which follows his preface, Webster provides some examples which demonstrate his replacements for the obsolete: "Know or knew, for wist, wit and wot. Ex. 16.15; Gen. 21.26, &c. -- Part for deal, as a tenth part of flour. Ex. 29.40. Deal, in this sense, is wholly antiquated. -- Bring for fetch, in most cases. -- Suppose for trow. Luke 17.9." And a few examples illustrate his grammatical corrections: "Who is substituted for which, when it refers to persons. -- Its is substituted for his, when it refers to plants and things without life. -- To is used for unto. This latter word is not found in the Saxon books, and as it is never used in our present popular language, it is evidently a modern compound..." Finally, Webster is coy about specifics in the matter of his euphemisms, supplying only the citations of chapter and verse: "See Gen. 20.18; 29.31; 30.22; 34.30; 38.9, 24; Exod. 7.18; 16.24; Levit. 19.29; 21.7; Deut. 22.21; 23.1; 28.57 ..." and many more. (Genesis 20, 29, 30, 1 Sam 1, and Job 3 contain in the King James Version the phrases “closed up the womb” and “opened the womb,” which Webster replaces with “made barren” and “made fruitful.” In Genesis 38, Leviticus 19, 21, Deuteronomy 22, Judges 2, Psalm 106, Ezekiel 16, 23, and Ephesians 5, the old, offending words are “whoredom,” “whore,” “went a whoring,” and “whoremonger,” -- Webster substituted for these strong words: “lewdness,” “lewd woman,” “harlot,” “went astray,” and “lewd person.” To give an example of one change which is not strictly a matter or grammar or useage, throughout Webster's revision of the King James Bible, he replaced "Holy Ghost" with "Holy Spirit" -- evidently to avoid confusing the literal minded among his readers who might be thinking of "ghost" in its usual sense of apparition. One sentence in Webster's Preface can explain why he chose not to make some of the profound changes that other American of the next generation introduced into "their" versions of the Bible: "To avoid giving offense to any denomination of Christians, I have not knowingly made any alteration in the passages of the present version, on which the different denominations rely for the support of their peculiar tenets." The New Testament has special title page: 'The New Testament in the common version ... ' New Haven : Printed by H. Howe, 1833 -- page [691]. While OCLC Number: 4404134 shows 43 libraries world wide with copies of this 1833 first edition, it is now quite scarce in commerce. .

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.

        Tour of the American Lakes, and among the Indians of the North-West Territory, in 1830: disclosing the character and prospects of the Indian race.

      Frederick Westley and A.H. Davis, London 1833 - First edition, 8vo, 2 volumes, pp. xxxii, 316; vii, [1], 387; slightly later half calf over marbled boards, red morocco labels on spines; rebacked, with old spines laid down; good and sound. Colton (1789-1857), who gave up his ministry because of the failure of his voice, went to England in 1831 as a correspondent for the New York Observer. Unlike his earlier religious works, which are of little value, "his descriptive narratives of travel are of much real value" (see DAB). Field, 345: "Mr. Colton seems to have been imbued with the laudable design of affording such information regarding the Indians he visited, as would not only excite the interest of his readers in his narration of incident, but would arouse the sympathy of the humane to their wretched condition. Almost the entire work is devoted to the relation of Indian affairs. More than half of the first volume is occupied with personal observations of Aboriginal life, and statements made to him regarding it. The second volume is entirely filled with a collection of facts relating to their origin, wars, treaties, treatment by the governments of Great Britain and the United States, and the result of missions among them."

        A Catalogue of 1112 Stars, Reduced from Observations made at the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, from the Year 1816 to 1833.

      Printed by T. Bensley. and sold by John Murray 1833 - FIRST EDITION, pp. iv, 19, folio, contemporary German cloth backed boards, printed label on verso of title stating 'This Part of the Astronomical Observations made at the Royal Observatory at Greenwich is presented, by the Royal Astronomical Society, to', 'Prof. F. Argelander' completed by hand, extensive annotations by Argelander to the text; ex-libris Bonn University with their de-accession stamp ('Ausgesondert'), shelfmark label at foot of spine; together with an ALs by Pond concerning his observational techniques, addressed to the President of the Royal Astronomical Society, but apparently never sent (see below). This is part of the 16 volume Observations published by Pond, 1812-35, one singled out for presentation. Rare: no copy in the USA in WorldCat (nor is any set of the complete run). 'On Maskelyne's death, Pond was appointed astronomer royal by the prince regent, and took up his office at Greenwich on 13 April 1811. The new mural circle by Troughton was delivered in 1812, and for the next few years Pond made an extensive series of observations on bright stars in order to establish a standard catalogue of declinations to complement Maskelyne's catalogue of right ascensions of thirty-six standard stars. In 1816 a new transit instrument, also by Troughton, replaced the one which had been in use for over sixty years. Pond's great contribution to positional astronomy was in the improvement of declination measurements. In 1822 he devised a very elegant method of determining the horizontal reference by combination of observations made directly and by reflection in a mercury horizon; this enabled the true zenith distance to be derived without recourse to the use of a plumb line or spirit level. A second circle, similar in all respects to the Troughton circle, was being constructed by Thomas Jones for the new Royal Observatory at the Cape of Good Hope. In 1823 Pond persuaded the Admiralty that this circle should be set up permanently at Greenwich, and from 1825 he used both circles in parallel, observing directly with one and by reflection with the other. The accuracy achieved by this technique was demonstrated more than sixty years later by S. C. Chandler, who detected variation of latitude in Pond's observations; further evidence is given by the investigation by Richardson, one of Pond's assistants, who derived a value of the constant of aberration of starlight which is very close to the true value. The culmination of Pond's career was the publication in 1833 of a catalogue of the positions of 1113 [sic] stars' (ODNB). A splendid association. Friedrich Wilhelm Argelander of Bonn built substantially on results such as those produced by Pond. Pond's autograph letter, loosely inserted, is, according to a second letter to Henry Warburton ('Philosopher Warburton', and radical MP), one that he was thinking of sending to the President [of the Royal Astronomical Society: Francis Baily had just been elected]. He sent it to Warburton for his perusal before presenting to to the President the next day, or, if it did not meet with his, Warburton's, approval, for its destruction. Pond was doubtful about the contents, and the likelihood of his being able to attend the meeting, due to his chronic ill-health. Pond discusses in some detail his double method observation. The letter is evocative of the political in-fighting that beset the early days of the Royal Observatory.

        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.

        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.

        Curieuses recherches de plusieurs beaus morceaus d'ornemens antiques, et modernes, tant dans la ville de Rome, ques autres villes et lieux d'Italie. Croissant, Adam Philippon, 1645.

      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.
