      - BAL 1833-1863 passim; Berlin Kat. 313-314 passim; Fuhring, Ornament prints in the Rijksmuseum, passim; cf. Guilmard, Maitres Ornemanistes, pp. 70-75 passim (later printings). 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.

        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.

        Histoire naturelle de Buffon. Mammifères. Oiseaux. [Atlas].

      - Paris, Pourrat Frères, [?1833-1834]. In three volumes. 8vo (22.2 x 14.4 cm). Two title pages, two frontispiece portraits, 327 plates on 325 sheets. Uniform early 19th century embossed calf. Spines rich gilt with floral vignettes, and titles. Gilt monogram on front boards. Marbled endpapers.l These sets of fine, hand-coloured plates form part of Lesson's edition of the "Buffon". "Buffon" in this case is a noun, meaning: book on zoology (in the first half of the 19th century the great majority of French natural history works were modelled after, or based on the works of Buffon, and it was almost obligatory to mention his name in the book title). René Primevère Lesson (1794-1849), who had already published some of the finest illustrated books on birds, starts this edition by closely following Buffon's 18th century original. It is characterized by a superior rendering of the plates, with Prêtre, Traviés and Oudart (arguably among the best natural history illustrators of the 19th century) as principal artists. Following the classic Buffon plates are many new plates. These are from the "Complément ou histoire naturelle des animaux rares découvertes par les naturalistes et les voyageurs depuis la mort de Buffon", including quite a number of Australian mammals and birds, as well as the New Zealand kiwi. Nissen (697), with a query, lists 200 plates, and lists the slightly later edition published by Pourrat and Roret as having 206 plates, viz. 58 mammals and 148 birds. This copy, however, has 128 mammal plates on 126 sheets, and 199 bird plates, far more than in either the "Oeuvres complètes", or the "Complément", which, according to Nissen (2462), should have 122 plates (1828-1830 ed.), or 181 plates (1838-1841 ed.). Given the contemporary bindings and the similar style, this is an unrecorded edition, rather than a mixed edition. Not counted in our total are portraits of Buffon and Lesson, three folded maps of the (then known) world, and plain plates of a furnace, a telescope, a burning glass, and a map of the Auvergne, as well as three plain plates of sperm, and two hand-coloured plates of humans, which were all in imitation of the original Buffon edition. Plate numbering is erratic, and often absent. For instance, in the Mammalia section there are 27 numbers used twice, and seven numbers used three times, 16 plates without a number, and six bis plates. In the mammals, 43 plates have no number, while 27 numbers remained unused. Initials of J.V. on tails of spines and the same initials embossed in gilt on front panels. We strongly believe this to be the naturalist Jules Verraux, who worked as "naturaliste voyageur" for the Museum national d'Histoire naturelle in Paris. He travelled to South Africa and Asia to collect specimens. He is considered one of the greatest ornithologists of his time, and many birds, including an eagle, have been named after him by zoologists such as Lesson, Bonaparte, and Grandidier. Three plates in duplicate (second copies not counted). A few plates toned or spotted, the Auvergne-map torn with about a quarter missing, the title pages of oiseaux and mammifères interchanged, otherwise a very good set of what possibly is a very rare edition. Compare Nissen ZBI, 697; 2462. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

      1833 - Religious Liberty and the Tyranny of the Mississippi Presbytery [Trial]. Clapp, Theodore [1792-1866], Defendant. [Channing, William Ellery (1780-1842)]. A Report of the Trial of the Rev. 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).

      - 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.

        Maria Del Occidente. Zóphiël; or, The Bride of Seven .

      R. J. Kennett ?, London 1833 - First English edition (first published in Boston in 1825). A narrative poem based on the story of Sara in the apocryphal Book of Tobit, by the Massachusettsan poet Maria Gowen Brooks (1794-1845).It was during a visit to her brother's Cuban coffee plantation that the recently widowed Gowen-Brooks composed the first canto of Zóphiël, which was published in 1825. In her Preface, Gowen-Brooks explains that she 'endeavoured to adhere entirely to the belief (once prevalent among the fathers of the Greek and Roman churches), which supposes that the oracles of antiquity were delivered by dæmons or fallen angels, who wandered about the earth'. Zóphiël is one such, a complex protagonist who is likened to both Apollo and Lucifer in his pursuit of the virtuous Hebrew maiden Egla. This edition has a dedicatory poem to Robert Southey, with whom Gowen-Brooks began a correspondence in 1826, and with whom she lodged for several weeks in 1831 at his home in Keswick. Southey championed Gowen-Brooks, and undertook to supervise the publication of this edition upon her return to the US. He wrote to Caroline Bowles, 'I do not know of any poet whose diction is so naturally good as Mrs. Brooks's' (Jackson, p. 40). Charles Lamb was entranced by the work, writing 'Southey says it's by some Yankee woman. As if there were any woman capable of creating anything so great!'. Small 8vo (160 x 100 mm), pp. viii, 261, [1]; occasional pencil lines in the margins; contemporary tan half calf and marbled boards, spine gilt in compartments with raised bands and contrasting label, marbled edges; corners scuffed, joints a little worn, some scratches to the leather at the head of the lower board; armorial bookplate of Henry Jeffreys Bushby and book label of Percival F. Hinton. [Not in Jackson; Jackson, Women p.40 (Brooks 2 (b)).] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      De Baudry and Theoph. Barrois,, Paris 1833 - Text Volume: 8vo. ix, 333 pp., 2 lithograph portraits, 1 large folding plan, contemporary half-calf with marbled boards, rubbed round edges, marbled edges, title gilt on decorated spine / Atlas: Folio. 16 double-page lithographed maps and plans, of which 15 are hand coloured, contemporary boards, rubbed, spine worn, foxing throughout both volumes, small tear to folded map in text volume without any loss, bookplates of Antonio Capucho and Annibal Fernandes Thomaz verso covers. Extremely rare text and atlas in two volumes. A rare account of this 16th century sea voyage around the Arabian Peninsula. The present work is the first appearance of this journey in print, published from the original logbooks of João de Castro's voyage. We have found only one copy of this work in international auction trade, from 1964. João de Castro was a Portuguese nobleman and fourth Viceroy of Portuguese India. He was called Castro Forte ("Stronghold" or "Strong Castle") by the poet Luís de Camões. In 1535 he accompanied Dom Louis to the siege of Tunis, where he had the honour of refusing knighthood and reward bestowed by the Emperor Charles V. In 1538 he left for India in the company of his uncle Garcia de Noronha, and on his arrival at Goa went off for the relief of Diu. In 1540 he served on an expedition to Suez under Estêvão da Gama (the son of Vasco da Gama and then Viceroy of Portuguese India), by whom his son, Álvaro de Castro, a child of thirteen, was knighted, as a compliment to him. Estêvão da Gama went on an expedition to the Red Sea with 12 large galleons and carracks, and 60 galleys, on 31 December 1540; D. João de Castro being the captain of a galleon. This expedition to Suez was truly remarkable, and João de Castro made a detailed roadmap of it, with maps, calculations, pictures and detailed notes from the coasts of the Arabian Peninsula as of those of the countries of today’s Somalia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt, as far as Suez and to several ports in the shores of the Sinai Peninsula, all included in the Roteiro do Mar Roxo, which was offered to Prince Louis. Eight months later he returned to Goa on 21 August, having acquired by the experiences made during the expedition, the name of a philosopher. "I pay great attention to eclipses of the moon," he wrote, "as also to longitudes and latitudes, fishes, seaweeds, currents, winds, the colour of the Red Sea, and every detail that might concern the art of navigation", to the delight of his friends Pedro Nunes and Prince Louis, who had furnished him with special instruments and other assistance for his voyage. D. João de Castro called for the need of the co-ordination between the observation and reason, in the case of the navigation: "This science of navigation is poorly distributed among the men, or because they act like idiots, which for a long time and through continuous exercise they reach many particulars, though with all their works are never to gain authority in their office, or those who have no experience, but with much learning and great practice in the science of mathematics, reached the shadow of this art but not the true science." It is in overcoming this separation that rooted the ways of science, which reaches an understanding with no epilogue, an open knowledge, in constant motion approach, not compatible with the spirit of the system. João de Castro tell us that the knowledge of science is " to arrive at the truth", that science is "closer to the truth and not the absolute truth": "We need to consider how much we owe for teaching us how not to ignore the fact that we can be closer to the truth, as are human things that men can learn (.). Not only to be expected by virtue of reaching the truth, but also get close to her." In 1543 he was named commander of a fleet; and in 1545 he was sent to India to assist Martim Afonso de Sousa, who had been dismissed of the viceroyalty.
