One hundred copies of this handsome volume were printed in 1833 for private circulation. It contains four steel engravings representing the book-rooms and outside of the house; two may be seen in Dibdin's works…The catalogue is admirably arranged after a modification of Hartwell Horne's system of classification, and has a good alphabetical index. It is a model catalogue of a private library, and is now rare and much sought after. Miss Currer's library… contained many rarities. It was rich in natural science, topography, antiquities, and history. There was a fair collection of Greek and Latin classics…The books were all in choice condition, many with fine bindings."-D.N.B., V, pp. 340-41. Very good and handsome copy. ❧ De Ricci, pp. 141-43.

        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.

      J & J Harper, NY, 1833. 5th edition or later.. Hardcover. Good. It took Gibbon over a decade to write his six volume history (1776-1788). His use of primary sources and determined objectivity in relaying the history of the Roman Empire, established him as a new type of historian. His use of irony endeared him with readers. Calf binding worn. Some foxing but pages otherwise good, bindings tight. Some fading, wearing, on spine.

        A Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Commoners of Great Britain and Ireland

      35 - London - Henry Colburn, 1833 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. An uncommon four volume set of this work on genealogy. Written by John Burke, known for initiating the long-running Burke's Peerage series, the work takes a detailed and meticulous look at noteworthy men and women in the UK who weren't born into nobility, attaching a misplaced importance onto such matters in the process. 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. Internally, the pages are firmly bound but are lightly spotted throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

He eventually ended up at Simla where "Lady William Bentinck told him that, though she had convinced the governor-general's court that he was not mad, she could not persuade them that he was not an enthusiast, to which he replied, 'I hope I am an enthusiast drunk with the love of God'" (ODNB).

        LIGHTHOUSES, THE STEVENSONS, & OTHER LIFE SAVING DEVICES AT SEA, 1821-1893. An interesting collection of 41 contemporary 19th century publications, featuring several pieces by and about the ?Lighthouse Stevensons?, a number of scientific improvements and creations for lighting and lenses, together with incredible and intriguing life saving devices for shipwrecked sailors

      Various Publishers. First Edition. Disbound. Very Good Condition. This material benefits from the immediacy and contemporary nature of the moment it is written in, and much of it has been ignored or at best skimmed over in the standard studies, and it provides the opportunity for much further study and fresh commentary on safety at sea. This compelling selection of articles, all written in English, are taken from important 19th century journals. Key pieces include a very important piece by David Brewster on the British Lighthouse System (1833), an interesting detailed discussion on the Parliamentary inquiry into Lighthouses (1835) along with a responses by Alan Stevenson (1835) refuting some of the comments made. There are good illustrated pieces from the Encyclopedia Britannica (1824) on the Bell Rock Lighthouse, and the Encyclopedia Metropolitana (1845) regarding the Eddystone Lighthouse. Francis Conder contributes an extended item on the Engineers and construction of Eddystone and Skerryvore (1880), whilst there are numerous articles with detailed improvements to the mechanisms, lenses, and lighting from amongst others John Wigham (1886), William Swan (1850), and Thomas Stevenson (1871) and Alan Stevenson (1835). J.R. Leifchild summaries numerous official documents on Wrecks, Life Boats and Lighthouses (1862) and there are various articles on Shipwrecks (J.R.McCulloch, 1834), Life Boats (Andrew Henderson, 1857), and Percussion Lights (Cpt. Leach, 1857), amongst others. All published between 1821 and 1893. The majority of the articles are octavo in size, and quite a few, particularly regarding shipwrecks and life saving devices have illustrations, chiefly woodcuts. There are a couple of quartos, plus an engraving, and two small folio Acts of Parliament, and two folio Chambers' Edinburgh Journals. The entire collection runs to over 400 pages. Note; this is a collection of articles all separated and disbound from other volumes, not offprints or reprints. Overall condition is very good, with bright clean, easily readable pages. There is some browning here and there to a few pages, but not many. Each article is contained in a clear protective sleeve for safe handling, and the whole collection is housed in a box file for smart presentation and ease of shelving. A full list of all the articles contained in this collection is available on request. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; Collections. .

L'opera è divisa in due carte ben distinte, la Lombardia ed il Veneto, che si uniscono perfettamente. Costruita partendo dalle misurazioni servite per la stesura della famosissima carta che segnò l'era moderna della cartografia eseguita dagli Astronomi di Brera. Infatti nel foglio B2 della spiegazione dei segni si legge: "NOTA SULLA COSTRUZIONE DELLA CARTA. Per la costruzione di questa Carta servirono di appoggio i punti trigonometrici ricavati dalla grande triangolazione, che dalla base misurata nelle vicinanze di Somma presso il Fiume Ticino si estende per tutto il Regno, e la cui esattezza è comprovata dal perfetto di lei accordo colle operazioni trigonometriche dei paesi limitrofi.

      Printed by Gales & Seaton, Washington [DC] 1833 - Very thick octavo volume. Contemporary full sheepskin leather, flat spine "paneled" by pairs of rules in blind, red leather label lettered in gilt in the second panel -- covers with a border constructed of decorative tooling in blind, plain endpapers. There are scuff and shallow gouges to the leather suface of the covers, and scattered foxing (both diffuse and little pin-points) affecting many of the text leaves -- as usual for paper used in official publications of the U.S. Congress of the time. 23rd Congress, 1st Session. Ho[use] of Rep[resentative]s. Executive. [Doc. No. 1 (through 49] This is the first volume, only (of six), of the complete set of the Executive Documents produced by the first session of the twenty-third U.S. Congress, during the administration of Andrew Jackson. As detailed at the beginning of the first section -- [an "Index to the Executive Documents. 43 pp.] -- this first volume contains Documents numbers 1-49. The first is the longest, and begins with Andrew Jackson's State of the Union Message, and then incorporates detailed reports from each department of the Executive branch controlled by the office of the President. This Document No. 1 consisted of 292 pages, and its first leaf serves as the title page for this volume, with a full imprint from Gales & Seaton in Washington. These partners were the official printers to Congress for many years. Joseph Gales, Jr. took over as sole proprietor of the 'National Intelligencer,' and after forming a partnership with his brother-in-law, William Winston Seaton, their newspaper started daily publication in 1813. It became the paper of record for Washington and the Federal Government, with a running account of the debates in both Houses. Four major threads run through this part of Andrew Jackson's eventful presidency: the finances of the country and the nature of the (second) Bank of America; the status of the War Department and the several branches of armed services; the ongoing program of "Indian Removal;" and foreign policy (relations, in particular, with Britain, France, Spain, Russia, Denmark, Belgium, the Two Sicilies, and Latin America). Document No. 2 is headed: "Removal of Public Deposites [sic] . from the Bank of the United States." 42 pages, under the aegis of the Secretary of the Treasury [Roger B. Taney, a future Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court]. (Andrew Jackson's determined opposition to the Bank of the United States is still a matter of historical debate -- Document 21 is a protest from the Philadelphia Board of Trade against the removal of those Federal Government deposits). Document 12 is devoted to another significant response: "Memorial of H. D. Gilpin, Peter Wagner, John T. Sullivan and H. McElderry, the officially appointed directors of the Second Bank of America. 40 pp. There is a document No. 20] of great significance to the history of the U.S. Navy -- the entirely re-designed and rewritten Rules and Regulations of 1833, covering all possible details of Naval service, from specification of the uniforms, ranks and commands, pensions, arrests and courts martial, shipyards and quartermaster details, the Marines, etc. [107 pp.] Another of the most substantial documents is Number 26, the detailed report by the long-serving Third Auditor of the Treasury, Peter Hagner, "Claims of Certain Citizens of the United States for Indian Depredations." [117 pp. -- Peter Hagner was first appointed to the Treasury department in 1793 by George Washington, and served under every administration for fifty-six consecutive years, resigning his office in 1849! The details of these claims are printed in three horizontal columns across the pages, and represent an indispensable record of Native American studies. Hagner's remarks on each claim (printed in its own column) from his signficant position as Third Auditor of the Treasury, demonstrate that, whatever the slant of Andrew Jackson's determination to move vast numbers of the inconvenient native Americans o [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Biographical Memoir of Daniel Boone, the First Settler of Kentucky: Interspersed with Incidents in the Early Annals of the Country

      N. and G. Guilford and Co., Cincinnati 1833 - 8vo, contemporary cloth, illustrated with frontispiece portrait of Boone, and 9 full page illustrations, 252pp. Binding shows some wear, and book has slight tilt. Frontispiece somewhat faded, the usual foxing, and a little staining. Has been rebacked, and overall is in very good condition. This is a first edition, second issue of Flint’s (1780-1840) popular biography of Boone. This work appeared in some 14th editions, and did much to establish Boone as a frontier legend. Not surprisingly, there is a lot of exaggeration in the work, which is illustrated with several illustrations showing Boone, in a coonskin hat, shooting panthers, fighting bears, and exploring the ‘wild frontier’. In reality, Boone (1734-1820) did live a colorful life, even if he didn’t shoot panthers off the backs of buffaloes. He was an Indian fighter, an explorer, and even fought in the French and Indian War. While Boone will forever be linked with the early settlement of Kentucky, he did live in West Virginia for ten years, and ended up settling in Missouri. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A YANKEE AMONG THE NULLIFIERS, AN AUTO-BIOGRAPHY

      New-York: William Pearson, 1833. Second Edition. Very Good binding. Interestingly, Asa Green "became the first American to apply the term [autobiograph] to a 'narrative of [his] life written by himself,' when he published ... A Yankee Among the Nullifiers, an Auto Biography, under the pseudonym Elnathan Elmwood" [see Arnold Krupat, For Those who Come After: A Study of Native American Autobiography, p. 40]. An uncommon record of contemporary life in Carolina, under the guise of a fictitious account of Yankee Elnathan Elmwood travels to South Carolina where he runs fro Congress; his speeches inspire a group of slaves to lead an uprising. In the publisher's paper covered boards backed in green cloth, with a partial paper label to the spine. Some damping and scattered foxing throughout. (Wright 1068). Very Good binding.
