        Livre de Compte de Mademoiselle Alexandrine Lambert [compiled in part by her brother Auguste Lambert], Commencé le 1e Novembre 1828

      [France], 1833. 4to (216 x 170 mm). Manuscript account book, 38 pages text in a notebook numbered in manuscript to 211 pp. of which all but the following pages remain blank: 2-3, 6-9, 12 [one line], 15-23, 101-105, 119-121, 130-131, 140-141, 150-151, 160-161, 170-171, 181, 183, 185-186. The first page (p. "2") is a Table of Contents on verso of the free endleaf. Written in brown ink in two or three hands, including a neat cursive, and one or two flowing slanted cursives. Calligraphic title. Contemporary portfolio binding of green morocco over flexible boards, large fore-edge flap wrapping across both covers and slipping through a wide strap (torn) on lower cover, gold-tooled border to covers, the flap and the strap, the flap lettered sideways in gilt capitals "Mlle Alexandrine Lambert," green morocco-grained coated endleaves, edges stained green (some scrapes and discoloration to covers, extremities of spine abraded). *** A handsomely bound manuscript account book of a well-off young girl or woman, apparently from Normandy, compiled by her brother, as stated at the foot of the title-page (Souvenir d'amitié de son affectionné Frère Auguste), with the pages listing revenues filled in by either herself or a third party. Mlle. Lambert had inherited some property from both her parents, deceased in 1826, and from a sister, at an unidentified date soon after. The accounts consist largely of rentes, which are more carefully identified than are the expenses. She was evidently a comfortable property owner, whose income derived mainly from the rental of several rural holdings, as well as some of the wood harvested thereon, and she was able to purchase new terrains and a house as further investment properties. The manuscript opens with a review of the state of Lambert's fortune in April 1826, and the revised situation following her inheritance (shared with other siblings), in November 1828. Follows a section of general accounting, showing expenses and receipts from November 1828 to 1833. Seven sections are each devoted to a different property and its usually unnamed tenant; in these the various buildings, fields, tree plantations or bosquets, gardens, and other nooks and crannies each have their own separate line, and sometimes their own name. An interesting witness to everyday life in rural France.

        Lewis's Sketches and Drawings of the Alhambra, made during a Residence in Granada, in the Years 1833-4

      Hodgsong & Graves,, London - Folio (553 x 380 mm), 25 tinted lithographed plates by Harding, Lane, Gauci & Lewis after Lewis, lithographed title with vignette, tissue guards, some foxing, mostly marginal, ex-library copy with accession number on verso of title and small unobtrusive embossed stamp at foot of title and margin of plates, roan-backed moiré cloth, new spine, no date of publication circa [1835]. Lewis was one of the the first British artists to capture the beauty of Spanish life, dedicating nearly an entire decade (1832-1840) to Iberian themes. The celebrated art critic John Ruskin held Lewis in the highest esteem, describing him as "the painter of greatest power, next to Turner, of the English school" and his book Elements of Drawing goes on to say ‘Let no lithographic work come into your house, nor even look at any, except Prout’s and sketches of Lewis’s.’ The lithographs were printed on the press of Hullmandel, one of the originators of the process, and represent some of the best examples of the lithographic technique using a tint-stone. The plates comprise: 1- (Vignette from title page. The Fountain of Lions). 2- The Alhambra from the Albaycin. 3- Puerta de Justicia. 4- Puerta del Vino. 5- Sierra Nevada and Part of the Alhambra / from the Adarves. 6- Casa de Francisco Sanchez. 7- Patio de los Arrayanes. 8- (Patio de los Arrayanes & Palace of Carlos V). 9- Patio de los Arrayanes & Torre de Comares. 10- Entrance to the Hall of Ambassadors. 11- Window in the Hall of Ambassadors. 12- Door of the Hall of Ambassadors. 13- Torre de Comares. 14- Entrance to the Banos. 15- Sala de las dos Hermanas 16- (Entrance to the Sala de las dos Hermanas). 17- Patio de los Leones. 18- Entrance to the hall of the Abencerrages. 19- Sala de los Abencerrages. 20- Patio de los Leones. 21- Patio de los Leones from the Hall of the Abencerrages. 22- Entrance to the Mosque. 23- Patio de la Mesquita. 24- Casa de Chapu. 26- Alhambra from the Alameda del Darro.

        Sancia di Castiglia Tragedia lirica... dall' Autore Dedicata al celebre Sigr. Mo. Giov. Simone Mayr N. 6706 al 20. Prezzo fr. 26. [Piano-vocal score]

      Milano: Gio. Ricordi [PNs 6706-6720], 1833. First Edition. Angelone et al.: Donizetti p. 158. Catalogo Ricordi online. OCLC no. 21821534. Sancia di Castiglia, to a libretto by Pietro Salatino, was first performed at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples on November 4, 1832. "Sancia di Castiglia combines the tradition of spagnuolismo, popular at the Bourbon court in Naples, with the emphasis on pathos and suffering that was a Donizettian speciality. Although afflicted with an awkward libretto and using the already old-fashioned musico convention for the role of Garzia, the score contains an eloquent and elaborate aria-finale for Sancia, a role written for Ronzi de Begnis." William Ashbrook in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Dark green morocco-backed marbled boards, spine in decorative compartments gilt, titling gilt. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f. (recto named cast list, verso table of contents with plate and page numbers), 163, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Named cast list includes Ronzi de Begnis, Santolini, Lablache, Basadonna and Ricci. Contains 16 numbers in total, each with separate title, imprint, price, and pagination. With piano reduction by L. Truzzi. Binding slightly worn, soiled, and bumped; contemporary manuscript labels to foot of spine. Blank margins with light soiling and occasional creasing and small stains, not affecting music. An attractive copy, printed on fine laid paper.

        A YANKEE AMONG THE NULLIFIERS, AN AUTO-BIOGRAPHY

      New-York: William Pearson, 1833. Second Edition. Very Good binding.

        Færeyínga Saga oder Geschichte der Bewohner der Färöer. Im isländischen Grundtext mit färöischer, dänischer und deutscher Übersetzung.

      1833 1833 - Copenhagen: Schubothesche 1833. With folded map and facsimile with handcoloured initials. [4] + XXXVIII + [2] + 372 pp. Weakly browning but otherwise well-preserved copy with red edges bound in nice contemporary halfleather with coloured label, and gold- and blindtooled decorations on spine. * 1st edition of this very rare book. With Islandic, Faroese and Danish parallel text.Rafn's important edition is the first convincing attempt to make a critical reconstruction of Færeyínga Saga which does not exist as a compleated text-unit, eventhough a such original edition undoubtably exist, and is dated the beginning af the 13th century. The reconstruction is based on the Flateyjarbók in the Olafssaga Tryggvarsonar, the Olafs Saga Helga, on the tradition of Snorre Sturlason's Heimskringla, and on other fragments of the Icelandic manuscripts. The Faroeish translation of the Faeryínga Saga in this book is done by J.H. Schröter and is the third book printed in Faroese language; so not only is it an early etymological and phonetic orthography but also a milestone in the history of the Faroeish language.Vogt/ Kordeck 1313.

Dann besuchte er die Münchner Akademie, wo er sich zunächst der Historienmalerei widmete. Die Malerei von H. Bürkel (1802-1869) und P. von Hess (1792-1871) brachte schließlich die Hinwendung zur Genremalerei – Hirtenszenen war eines seiner bevorzugten Themen.

        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.""

        Chrestomathie Chinoise,: publié aux frais de la Société Asiatique.

      Paris [chez M. Cassin, agent de la Société Asiatique] 1833 - A compilation of Chinese texts begun in 1820 by François Lucie Molinier del Maynis, a student of Jean-Pierre Abel-Rémusat, Professor of Chinese at the Collège de France, but completed by Klaproth. Three Chinese works were given by Molinier to his lithographer to engrave: • Book of Rewards and Punishments (Thaï chang Kan yng pian) (pp.1-16). • Account of Cambodia (zhenla fengtu ji} (pp.21-73). • the first 15 chapters of St. Matthew in Chinese translated by Robert Morrison. Although Klaproth considered these were not sufficiently elegant in style he retained the first two, but dispensed with the third as it was a translation. He added four further texts: • Treatise on the Reward of Secret Benefits (wenchang zitong dijun yinzi wen) (pp.17-20); • Story of the Chalk Circle (huilan ji) (pp.75-171); • Thousand Character Classic (qianzi wen) (pp.171-183); • Three Character Classic" (san zi jing) (pp.1-15 - second sequence). All of these were considered to be seminal to the understanding of Chinese culture and to show the broad scope of Sinology in its early stages. The texts were lithographed under the supervision of Stanislas Julien, Abel-Rémusat's successor as Professor of Chinese at the Collège, by Charles-Auguste Racinet, "This clever artist has managed to imitate the elegance of the original printing and has already enlisted pupils who will in future be well qualified to reproduce Chinese texts in Europe" (from Klaproth's preface). (Not to be confused with his famous son - also a printer - Charles-Auguste Albert Racinet who published Histoire du Costume). The seven page letter-press prelims, i.e. half-title, title and preface, (not present here) were printed at the Imprimerie Royale. Heinrich Julius Klaproth, 1783-1835, a precocious student of Chinese, was named "academician extraordinaire" in St. Petersburg at the age of 24. In 1810 he had engraved in Berlin the Chinese characters he required for his catalogue of the Chinese books in the library of the Academy of Science. In 1816 he was appointed as the first professor of Chinese in Germany, at the University of Bonn. But he took no students, and spent the rest of his life in Paris where he was one of the founders of Journal Asiatique. George John Cayley,1826-78, a barrister educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge (though he never took his degree). In 1868 he stood as the Working Man's candidate for Scarborough in the general election. He published a popular light-hearted book on his travels in the interior of Spain, Las Alforjas, or the Bridle Paths of Spain, another on electoral reform and the working classes, and several pieces of light verse. The frontispiece to his travel book shows him with a magnificent mid-Victorian beard. He had a reputation as an accomplished metal-worker and in 1862 he and the Victorian painter George Frederick Watts designed the challenge shield for a national shooting championship at Wimbledon. He also was an accomplished tennis-player, helped to develop several types of tennis racket, and wrote an article on the game for the Edinburgh Review in 1875. He had homes at Wydale, Yorkshire and Westminster. In 1860 he married Mary Anne Frances Wilmot (c.1843-1908), and they had three children. COPAC shows BL & Cambridge only, neither give pagination A very good copy bound in contemporary calf, spine professionally repaired. But without the 7 page introduction by Klaproth. First edition 4to, Chinese title, pp.183, [2, 1, blank], 15, [1], 2 plates. With signature of George John Cayley, 1843, Paris, and a contemporary Chinese signature on end-paper.
