        Autograph Letter, Signed ("Charles"). To his brother Commodore James Biddle

      [Cincinnati, OH], 1833. 2-1/2 pp. pen and ink on bifolium. 8vo. Old folds, minor tear hole at seal not effecting text, else very good. 2-1/2 pp. pen and ink on bifolium. 8vo. Written at an apparent low point in his life, Biddle hints at estrangement from members of his family, expresses fears for the health of his daughter, Sarah, known as "Sally," who would die shortly afterward, and complains of his financial difficulties, including being cut off from a family trust by his brother William. The letter reads in part: "Two weeks ago I was in Washington City without money enough to pay even the postage of a letter, I was forced by the direct necessity to accept a temporary employment of a very dangerous character..." The son of Charles (1745-1821) and Hannah (Sheperd) Biddle, Charles Biddle, Jr. (1787-1836), appears to have been the black sheep of the prominent and well-connected, Biddle family of Philadelphia. Disinherited by his father, and described by his brother Nicholas as "the source of great unhappiness to all our family," (Belohlavek, John M. "A Philadelphian and the Canal: The Charles Biddle Mission to Panama, 1835-1836." The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography 104.4 (1980): 450-61. Web). Charles Biddle moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where he studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1827. That same year his wife, Ann (Hervey Stokes) (1787-1827) died, leaving him a widower with seven children. In 1832, despite the fact that his brother, Nicholas, President of the Second Bank of the United States, was embroiled in a bitter political battle with President Andrew Jackson, Biddle started a semi-weekly newspaper, the "Tennessee Reporter," to support Jackson's bid for a second term. Jackson rewarded Biddle with a nomination as a District Judge in the Territory of Florida, but the Senate failed to confirm his nomination. In 1835, Jackson selected Biddle to travel to Central America to explore the possibilities of a trans-Isthmian canal. Shortly after his arrival, Biddle dismissed the idea of a canal and instead, obtained a concessions for his own firm for a road thorug Panama and exclusive steamship rights, but his plans were cut short when he died on December 21.

        Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, 1st ed, 3 vols.

      1833 - Handsome First Edition of the First Important Work on the American Constitution 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. 3 volumes. xxxiv, [ii], 494; [ii], 555; [ii], 776 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, blind rules to boards, red and black lettering pieces and blind fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Light toning to text, some leaves have finger smudges, creases or foxing , a few leaves have brief early annotations. A handsome set. * 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 669-670.

        On the Organs and Mode of Fecundation in Orchideae and Asclepiadae

      1833. First Edition . BROWN, Robert. ""On the Organs and Mode of Fecundation in Orchideae and Asclepiadae."" IN: The Transactions of the Linnean Society of London. Volume XVI. Part the Third, pp. 685-746. London: Richard Taylor, sold at the Society's House and by Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman, 1833. Quarto, original blue paper wrappers, printed paper spine label, uncut and unopened. $1600.First edition of Robert Brown's discovery and naming of the nucleus in living plant cells—""the first specially to demonstrate its general occurrence in living cells and to give it the name 'nucleus'"" (DSB). In the original journal as issued, with three accompanying engraved plates, a fine uncut copy in original paper wrappers.In this communication read at the Linnean Society of London in November 1831 (pp. 685-738) and in ""Additional Observations"" on June 5, 1832 (pp. 739-46), Brown for the first time described and named the nucleus in plants. While investigating the process of fertilization in orchids, Brown discovered a small round body in cells, which he named the nucleus. He described a distinctly granular areola in each cell: ""this areola, or nucleus of the cell as perhaps it might be termed"" (p. 710), noting as well that ""only one areola belongs in each cell"" (ibid). ""A few earlier botanists evidently had observed the presence of this nucleus in some cells, as Brown himself points out, but he was the first specially to demonstrate its general occurrence in living cells and to give it the name 'nucleus'"" (DSB). Brown's paper established ""the concept of the nucleated cell as the unit of structure in plants"" (Arthur Hughes, A History of Cytology, 35). According to the DSB, in 1831 Brown printed a pamphlet version of this paper for private distribution. This pamphlet is exceedingly rare, if even extant (no copies in OCLC). A much shorter (ten-page) paper under the title ""Observations on the Organs and Mode of Fecundation…"" appeared in the 1832 Edinburgh Journal of Science; however, boh the DSB and Garrison & Morton both cite the present journal issue in Transactions of the Linnean Society as the first published edition to use the word ""nucleus."" Garrison & Morton 109. Expert restoration to spine of fragile wrappers. Very nearly fine condition. Scarce and desirable.

        Livre des pélerins polonais. Traduit du polonais d'Adam Mickiewicz par le Comte Ch. de Montalbert; Suivi d'un Hymne a la Pologne par F. de la Mennais.

      Renduel, Paris, 1833. LXXV, 176 p., 14 cm, m.p. muta.\r\r Esemplare medio con qualche fioritura, qualche macchiolina e piccoli difetti interni, mancanza dell'occhietto (se in origine presente). Adam Bernard Mickiewicz (Zaosie, 24 dicembre 1798 - Costantinopoli, 26 novembre 1855) è stato un poeta e scrittore polacco, incluso fra i trzej wieszcze (i Tre Bardi), ovvero i tre maggiori letterati del Romanticismo polacco insieme a Juliusz Słowacki e Zygmunt Krasiński. Figura dominante nella storia letteraria e spirituale della Polonia, ammirato e amato da Mazzini "come la natura poetica più potente del secolo", M. ci appare oggi quale l'interprete più profondo della Polonia anteriore alla catastrofe e nello stesso tempo come uno dei più sicuri forgiatori della rinascita polacca. Egli deve questa sua posizione preminente non solo alla sua attività poetica e patriottica, ma anche alla granitica saldezza della sua personalità al cui ascendente non si sono sottratti quanti, Polacchi o stranieri, hanno avuto con lui consuetudine di vita o comunanza d'ideali. Il 31 luglio 1832 Mickiewicz si trasferì a Parigi, accompagnato da un ex Filomata, il futuro geologo Ignacy Domeyko. Nella Ville Lumière il poeta venne a contatto con l'élite polacca emigrata; sotto questi influssi, scrisse articoli per il Pielgrzym Polski (LA PRESENTE OPERA NELLA RARISSIMA EDIZIONE ORIGINALE). Charles Forbes René de Montalembert (15 Aprile 1810, Londra - 13 Marzo 1870, Parigi) uomo politico e pubblicista, nato a Londra il 15 aprile 1810, morto a Parigi il 13 marzo 1870. Educato in Inghilterra dal nonno materno James Forbes, poi, al ritorno della famiglia in Francia, nel Liceo Borbone (1819), indi (1826-28) nel collegio Sainte-Barbe, si rivelò fin da allora fervente cristiano. Dopo brevi dimore a Stoccolma (1829) e in Irlanda (1830), dove aderì alla campagna di D. O' Connell, tornò a Parigi, entrando (ultimi mesi del 1830), nella redazione de L'Avenir, allora fondato da F. de Lamennais, in collaborazione con il quale e con D. Lacordaire, sostenne una pugnace campagna mirante all'instaurazione di una nuova era di libertà e di giustizia fondate sulla religione cattolica e, con ciò, tra altri capisaldi, a un ammodernamento, in senso liberale, della Chiesa, alla sua netta separazione dallo stato, all'emancipazione dei popoli oppressi, e ch'è più, a una compiuta libertà d'insegnamento e di stampa. Per avere le proteste di parecchi vescovi fatto sospendere L'Avenir, si recò con il Lamennais e con il Lacordaire, presso Gregorio XVI: viaggio che, pur dandogli agio di conoscere parecchie città italiane e parecchi letterati e patrioti della penisola, non impedì la condanna del giornale (enciclica Mirari vos del 1832). Sottomessosi, a differenza del Lamennais, al responso papale, s'occupò a Parigi (1833) d'arte cristiana - donde i suoi parecchi scritti (p. es. una lettera a Victor Hugo sul Vandalisme en France, inserita nella Revue des deux mondes del 10 marzo 1833), in difesa della scultura e architettura medievali - e di "polonismo" - donde i suoi rapporti col poeta ed esule Adam Mickiewicz, che aiutò a fondare la rivista Le Polonais e di cui tradusse, con una sua prefazione, il Livre des pélerins polonais, anch'esso, poi, condannato da Gregorio XVI.

      35 - London - Henry Colburn, 1833 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. An uncommon four volume set of this work on genealogy.

Each volume contains a frontispiece plate, as well as vignettes throughout, with the bookplate of E. H. Greenby to each pastedown. Condition: In half-calf binding with gilt detailing and paper-covered boards. Externally quite smart, there is minor wear to the extremities, with some strain to hinges.
