        Nouveau traité du jeu des échecs

      Paris: Au Cafe de la Regence, 1833. 2 parts bound in one. iv+167 with title chess diagram; 204+[3] with diagrams and errata. Octavo (8 1/4" 5 1/4") bound in marbled boards. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 673) First edition. Louis-Charles Mahe de la Bourdonnais was born into a noble family on Reunion Island, then called Bourbon Island, in the Indian Ocean. He was sent to Paris where he attended the Henry IV College and learned to play chess in 1814. From 1818 onwards he played seven days a week at the Café de la Regence, where he had his own table. In 1821 he defeated Alexandre Deschapelles and John Cochrane and in 1823 he defeated Lewis in London. In 1825 he visited England again and there he married Eliza Waller Gordon. In 1831 he lost the money that he had inherited from his father in a land speculation in Saint-Malo. From then chess was his only source of income. In 1833 he published Nouveau Traite du Jeux des Echecs and in 1834 he played a match against Alexander MacDonnell. The match consisted of six parts and La Bourdonnais. They didn't speak each others language and could only say 'check' to one another. MacDonnell took far more time to make his moves and in between them La Bourdonnais played quick chess against other players to earn some extra money. During the sixth and last part La Bourdonnais was recalled to France on urgent business matters and MacDonnell died before the match could be resumed. In 1836 he became one of the editors of the first chess magazine, La Palamede. In 1838 he suffered a stroke and then from dropsy. Things went downward from then. He had to sell his books, furniture and clothes and in 1840 he returned to London where he was employed at Simpson's Divan. He died in December of that year and George Walker, the organizer of his match against MacDonnell, paid for his burial. Condition: Tape to spine, edges chipped and rubbed, some foxing else a good copy.

Plate volume: 150 engraved plates, comprising 75 partly printed in color and hand-finished, and 75 uncolored duplicates in outline. Minor spotting and marginal soiling and fraying to a few plates. Protected in modern cardboard folder with red morocco label to vellum covered spine and boards covered with marbled paste paper.An outstanding, unsophisticated copy as issued. ----Garrison-Morton 409.1; Wellcome IV, p.73; Roberts & Tomlinson p. 390; Sappol, Dream Anatomy pp.126 and 130; DSB IX, p.154. - Small folio authorized edition of Masgagni's great Anatomia Universa. As incredibly spectacular as the images of the Anatomia Universa were, Antonio Serantoni, the artist responsible for the drawing, engraving, and hand-coloring of that enormous work, recognized that its great size made it excessively expensive and virtually impossible to use. Therefore, three years after completion of the elephantine edition he issued a new edition as a normal-sized folio from Florence, with reduced versions of the spectacular hand-colored plates, and many changes. It is from this version that the work is generally known. Very Good.

        The Memorial and Justification of Mr. Barton ... [bound with] The Affairs of the Australian Agricultural Company.

      Cornhill [and] London: Pelham Richardson, 1832 &, 1833. Two works bound in one, octavo; the first 73 pp. with folding table; the second 33 pp.; tan half calf. Two very scarce works relating to the scandals that engulfed the Australian Agricultural Company, both written by the Company's agent William Barton, father of Sir Edmund Barton, the first Prime Minister of Australia. The Company was founded in London in 1824, with members of the Macarthur family actively involved in its establishment. On the advice of Commissioner Bigge, settlers with capital were encouraged to take up land in Australia: the Company took up a vast land grant in Port Stephens in early 1826 but despite huge support and investment, the venture initially struggled. During this period a quarrel between Barton, appointed as accountant in 1824, and the manager Sir William Parry, led to Barton's resignation.The first book, therefore, is literally Barton's "memorial and justification", and of great interest for the correspondence that is printed, especially that of Barton himself and also Sir William Parry's. Barton's detailed publication is one of the more significant early works relating to Port Stephens and the Company generally. The second book, published the following year, was also an integral part of the public defence and remuneration claim of Barton against the Company. Barton published this text of the company's accounts 'incontestably to prove that it is not attributable to my conduct' that the reports from New South Wales were so brief and unpromising. He also appends letters from key figures in the Company, notably one from John Macarthur who, amidst complaints of shattered health, asserts 'The Grant, with a very slight exception, is a barren waste.'Ferguson initially listed only the Mitchell Library copies of both of these works, but an additional copy of the Memorial and Justification (his own) and three of the Affairs appear in the Addenda volume. Very good, in modern binding.

        "Emigration in Search of a Husband".

      London: J. Kendrick, 1833. Handcoloured etching from a scrapbook with abbreviated title, 240 x 195 mm., lower margin and caption title incomplete. A famous satirical cartoon, lampooning the fate of a prospective bride upon her departure for the Australian colonies. A shortage of women was a defining quality of colonial society from the foundation years through the 1840's. Only the mass emigration of the gold rush years finally equalized the gender imbalance.This cartoon was printed in 1833 whilst female emigration was, in part, subsidized by the government. Although intended to be humorous, it does reflect the possibilities for social and economic advancement on offer in New South Wales. It depicts a slender porter struggling to carry a heavy trunk for a portly woman wearing a large bonnet. The porter asks "What are you going to Sidney for, pray ma'am ?" and the lady replies: "Vy [why] they says as how theres lots of good husbands to be had cheap whereas the brutes in England can't see no charms in a woman unles she's got plenty of money to keep 'em in idleness". This dialogue is significant as the poor grammar of the woman reflects her low social status and aspirational intent. Bottom margin trimmed and cropped, lacking words from the original full caption title (only the word "Emigration" is retained), likewise lacking the printmakers details and address.

        An Encyclopaedia of Cottage, Farm, and Villa Architecture and Furniture...

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green & Longman, 1833. Thick octavo, half title including publishers advertisements to verso, almost 100 lithographs on thicker art pages (but with continuing pagination) as well as more than 2,000 wood engravings throughout, early owner's inscription,, very good; half dark blue morocco, original marbled boards, gilt. A very attractive copy of the first edition of this important historical architectural reference work, in a Sydney binding, and with a handsome gift inscription to a Mr Carr, 'on his leaving for Sydney' in 1835. It is also likely that the pencilled "Mort" in an early hand refers to the later owner of the work, the Sydney businessman Thomas Sutcliffe Mort.Broadbent wrote that this work was the 'principal architectural handbook for amateurs and professionals' in the 1830s and 1840s, and it evidently exerted a vast influence on the colonial architecture in New South Wales (Australian Colonial House, p. 205). The work is recognised as helping define Victorian architecture, a style that is very prominent in the history of Australian design.John Claudius Loudon (1783-1843), a Scottish botonist, horticultural designer and editor of The Gardner's Magazine is known well for his designs for the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Stradsett Hall in Norfolk and the Abbey Cemetery in Bath. With this work, Loudon established himself as an expert in the language of rural architecture: 'Loudon's involvement with architecture arose naturally out of his interest in landscape. He made himself a specialist in rural vernacular building types by writing his Encyclopaedia of Cottage, Farm, and Villa Architecture (1833). This work was unprecedented in that it was consciously addressed to the middle class rather than to an aristocratic audience' (Brittanica).A pencil note on the front pastedown makes the interesting comment that when this 'book was rebacked (actually rejointed) in 2004 the spine was found to be lined with an 1845 Sydney newspaper. So "Mr Carr" had the book rebound soon after arrival in Sydney.'. Some scattered foxing; spine with some cracking and skilfully re-jointed.

        Vue des Caps du Port Jackson. Nouvelle Galles du Sud.

      Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1833. Lithograph, 205 x 320 mm.; very good condition, mounted. This fine view shows ships of the Astrolabe voyage passing through Sydney Heads.The Astrolabe (Duperrey's old ship the Coquille, renamed in honour of La Pérouse) sailed from Toulon in April 1826. Dumont d'Urville was instructed to explore the principal island groups in the South pacific, completing the work of the Duperrey voyage, on which the commander himself had been a naturalist. Because of his great interest in natural history, huge amounts of scientific date and specimens were collected, described and illustrated in sumptuous folio atlases. The expedition sailed via the Cape of Good Hope, through Bass Straits, stopped at Port Phillip, and arrived at Sydney on December 1, 1828.The expedition sailed for New Zealand in January 1827, explored Tasman Bay, found a pass between an island in Cook Strait and the northern shore of South Island (the island consequently named d'Urville and the strait "French Strait") and worked up the coast of North Island, completing the "most comprehensive exploration of the islands since Cook's death". They made Tonga in April 1827, explored the Fiji archipelago, New Britain and New Guinea. In November, after a stop at Amboina, they coasted along the northwest coast of Australia and reached Tasmania. In 1828 they continued to Vanikoro in search of traces of La Pérouse, and stopped at Guam in the Marianas, before returning via the Cape of Good Hope, reaching Marseille on March 25, 1829. Some browning of the outer blank margins.

        Observations of Nebulae and Clusters of Stars, made at Slough, with a Twenty-Feet Reflector, between the years 1825 and 1833. Offprint from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London

      London: Richard Taylor, 1833. First edition, the very rare offprint issue, of Herschel's famous 'Slough Catalogue,' which includes 2306 nebulae and star clusters, 525 of which were discovered by Herschel himself. (Parkinson, Breakthroughs 296). He was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1836 for this work. Herschel was, together with his father William, the greatest discoverer of nebulae and star clusters. Herschel explained his motivation for the present work in his Account of some Observations made with a 20-feet Reflecting Telescope (Memoirs of the RAS, Vol. II, 1826): 'The nature of nebulae, it is obvious, can never become more known to us than at present, except in two ways - either by the direct observation of changes in the form or physical condition of some one or more among them, of from the comparison of a great number, so as to establish a kind of scale or graduation from the most ambiguous, to objects of whose nature there can be no doubt.' The first way had been realised through his detailed observations of the Orion and Andromeda nebulae in his 1826 paper; the second was carried out in the years 1825-33, culminating in the present work. "For his observations John Herschel used a reflector with an aperture of 18¼", which was completed in 1820. It used two mirrors, one made by his father alone and another one cast and ground under his father's supervision. The telescope resembles William Herschel's famous 'large 20ft'. When John Herschel started observing, his intention was not so much the discovery of new nebulae and star clusters but rather he wanted to re-examine the three catalogues of his father. The main goals were identification and determination of exact positions... "John Herschel could observe a large fraction of his father's objects. Their data were partly confirmed, supplemented and corrected. Moreover, he discovered many new ones... John Herschel compiled a (pretty complete) catalogue of all non-stellar objects known up to 1833. The work meant real progress and became a great success, which was due to remarkable new features: absolute positions (for 1830), order by right ascension and new designation (h). The great homogeneity rests on the fact that all objects were observed and measured by John Herschel with the same telescope. The h-number got the new standard designation (e.g. h 50 = M 31)" (Steinicke, pp. 52-3). Soon after the present work was published, on 13 November 1833, John and his family set sail for Cape Town, where he carried out, over the next four years, a similar survey of the southern sky. This work was published as Results of astronomical observations made during the years 1834, 1835, 1836, 1837, 1838, at the Cape of Good Hope; being the completion of a telescopic survey of the whole surface of the visible heavens, commenced in 1825 (London, 1847), and did for the southern hemisphere what the present work did for the northern hemisphere: it described 4015 nebulae and star clusters. On his return to England, John continued his astronomical researches, which culminated in the General Catalogue of Nebulae and Clusters of Stars (1864), which contained 5,079 entries. In 1886, J. L. E. Dreyer was asked by the RAS to update the General Catalogue, leading to the publication of the New General Catalogue (NGC) in 1888. While engaged in the work leading to the Slough catalogue, Herschel discovered between three and four thousand double stars. These were catalogued and described in a number of papers published in the Memoirs of the RAS. Offprints of two of these papers are bound with the Slough catalogue in the present volume: Fifth Catalogue of Double Stars observed at Slough in the years 1830 and 1831 with a 20-feet Reflector; containing the Places, Descriptions, and measured Angles of Position of 2007 of those objects, of which 1304 have not been found described in any previous collection; the whole reduced to the epoch of 1830.0, pp. [ii], 81; 'Notice of the Elliptic Orbit of ? Boötis, with a second approximation to the Orbit of ? Virginis. To which is appended, a Notice of the Elliptic Orbit of ? Coronae', pp. [ii], 149-157 (both published in Memoirs of the RAS, Vol. VI, 1833). Provenance: Purchased at the sale of Edwin R. W. Wyndham-Quin (1812-71), third Earl of Dunraven, was styled Viscount Adare from 1824 to 1850. On his graduation from Trinity College, Dublin in 1833, Adare's "interest in astronomy [was such that] he decided to establish an observatory on his estate at Adare Manor... [He] studied for three years at Dunsink Observatory under Sir William Rowan Hamilton. He threw himself into astronomy with such intensity that he damaged his eyesight through overuse of the telescopes and had to abandon his plans to establish an observatory at Adare" (Dictionary of Irish Biography). He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1834. John Herschel (1792-1871) made a short journey to Ireland in 1827 where he met Hamilton, and it is probable that it was through him that Adare made Herschel's acquaintance. The closeness of their friendship is attested by a four-page letter from Adare to Herschel, dated 12 February 1833 and preserved in the Royal Society. Adare asks "whether your great work on the nebulae [i.e. the present work] will be published previous to your departure [to Cape Town]... I was reading lately with much interest your paper on double stars observed with the 7-foot equatorial, in which you have made remarks on the action of telescopes.' He goes on to discuss an improvement in his eye problems, observations that he and Thomas Romney Robinson had made with Mr. Cooper's telescope at Marktree in Co. Sligo ('when I begin about telescopes and stars I find it very difficult to stop'), and asks Herschel to congratulate Mrs. Herschel (whom he had obviously met) on the birth of a son. In later years Herschel sent Adare an inscribed and annotated copy of his translation of Schiller's Der Spaziergang. The present offprints must have been given to Adare by Herschel, but they are not inscribed. DSB VI: 325; Parkinson Breakthroughs 296; W.

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. Tali punti furono calcolati in distanze dalla meridiana e perpendicolare della cupola del Duomo di Milano...".

        Autograph Letter Signed to his sister, Mrs McDonald, Glasgow.

      Sydney: 13 April, 1833. Sheet of laid paper, 250 x 395 mm., folded to letter-size; written in a very legible script, stamped "India Letter Eastbourne" and with two other postmarks including a fine stamp from Sydney, 13 April 1833, remnants of wax seal. A fine and interesting letter from one of the founders of the Sydney Herald, to his sister in Glasgow, on his ambitions to set up his own house and adjoining print shop.William McGarvie (1810-1841), journalist and bookseller, was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He worked briefly on the Glasgow Herald before he followed his brother John to New South Wales, arriving in the Comet in 1828. He immediately took charge of a stationery warehouse run by the famous printer Robert Howe in Lower George Street. In 1831 he and two colleagues from the Sydney Gazette imported a printing press and began publication of the Sydney Herald. Although heavily involved in setting up the Herald, McGarvie's health was never strong, and he was soon compelled to return to Scotland. However, after a brief visit home, he returned to Sydney in 1832.This 1833 letter, then, dates from the very moment when McGarvie was once more finding his feet in Sydney. At the time of writing he was again working at the Howe's stationery warehouse - then under the proprietorship of Ann Howe - and also working as a jobbing printer. As the letter attests though, his ambitions were grander: 'I have just purchased a piece of ground next to where I am and intend in a few weeks to commence building a fine house and shop for myself so that I hope by the time you come out I will have a fine house and shop of my own to entertain you in. It will be two stories high and contain four rooms with back kitchen &c. and a large handsome shop with a separate entrance for the house.' If McGarvie's ambitions were realised this is a highly important sketch of his attempt to go alone as a printer: certainly it does predate the small series of now very rare books that were published over his separate imprint, most famously Thomas Shepherd's Lectures on the Horticulture of New South Wales of 1835.McGarvie's interest in printing waned after he a acquired a large land grand at Port Macquarie; he named his estate Mount Pleasant, and effectively retired there in 1835. McGarvie died in 1841. Some damage along the old folds, a small section of evidently blank paper missing.

Chodron" frappée en queue, rousseurs surtout pour les planches. Bon exemplaire. (de la bibliothèque Chodron de Courcel) Edition originale du plus célèbre ouvrage sur les prisons. Résultat d'une mission d'étude confiée en 1831 à Tocqueville et Beaumont alors qu'ils étaient magistrats à Versailles, afin d'examiner le système carcéral américain. Ils publièrent leur rapport dès leur retour, mais aussitôt Beaumont fut relevé de ses fonctions de substitut, et Tocqueville solidaire, démissionna de son poste de juge suppléant. En 1841, Tocqueville affirmera : « le premier ouvrage que nous ayons publié en commun M. de Beaumont et moi sur les prisons d'Amérique, a eu pour rédacteur unique M. de Beaumont. Je n'ai fourni que mes observations et quelques notes ». Il semble néanmoins avoir rédigé lui-même les notes et études statistiques de l'ouvrage. Suite à cette expérience américaine allait paraître en 1835 "De la Démocratie en Amérique".¶ Sabin n°4190.

        Zoological Illustrations, or Original Figures and Descriptions of new, rare, or interesting animals, selected chiefly from the classes of Ornithology, Entomology, and Conchology, and arranged on the principles of Cuvier and other modern Zoologists.

      London: Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, 1820-1823 & 1830-1833. Six volumes, octavo, 318 handcoloured plates, an excellent set in uniform contemporary green half morocco over marbled boards, all edges gilt. A particularly attractive set of both the first and second series of this beautiful work of natural history; all published, and rare in such fine original condition. The importance of this work to Australian and Pacific natural history cannot be overestimated: several plates feature Australian specimens - particularly birds - figured for the first time, while many of the illustrations are derived from the collections of important figures such as Sir Joseph Banks, Elizabeth Bligh, Allan Cunningham and John Byron. Peculiarly attractive is a plate in the second series, depicting the Jamaican "Two-Toothed Disk Snail", from an original sketch by John Lewin, a friend of the Swainson family.Swainson's friend William Elford Leach, head of zoology at the British Museum, first encouraged him to experiment with lithography so as to make drawings of animals suitable for colouring. Thus began the publication of this, his first major work, in which all of the plates are by the author; Swainson was the first illustrator and naturalist to use lithography in this way, achieving a fresh and admirable style.The work deals with specimens from all around the globe, with many from Java, the East Indies, and the Americas (particularly Brazil, visited by Swainson in 1816). Of great interest are the many plates illustrating specimens from the South Seas. Swainson was particularly good on shells, although he relied on the sometimes poor recording of earlier collectors, and was sometimes not able to be more specific than simply giving their habitat as "South Seas". There are, nonetheless, three illustrations of Australian shells, the "New Holland Mitre", the "Mitra melaniana", and the "Scaphella maculata", the last from the collection of Elizabeth Bligh. Several other South Seas shells are from the collection of Sir Joseph Banks, including the "Mitra vitatta", about which Swainson comments that "this superb shell is figured from a matchless specimen brought home by that illustrious and lamented patron of science, the late Sir J. Banks, from the Pacific Ocean".The work is rich with images of Australian birds, with lovely depictions of the "Azure Kingsfisher", "Red-shouldered Parakeet", "Turcosine Parrakeet", "Blue-fronted Parrakeet", and the "Tabuan, or King Parrakeet" (drawn by Swainson from a live specimen). He includes an image of the "White-collared Honeysucker", with the interesting note that "Lewin's figure is so excellent, that I should not again have represented this bird, had not the plate been prepared previous to the publication of his work". Perhaps the most personal note accompanies his depiction of "Swainson's, or Blue-bellied Lory" (Trichoglossus Swainsoni), where he comments on his "pleasure at seeing our name affixed to this charming bird, and in clearing up its history. As a child we well remember our unwearied delight at seeing its figure in White's Voyage".Several Australian birds are depicted for the first time. This interesting group, which we list here with Swainson's original scientific designations, includes the "Yellow-tufted Honeysucker" (Melliphaga auricomis); "Red-Collared Parakeet" (Psittacus Barabandii), from a skin in the possession of Mr Leadbeater; the "Keel-billed Flycatcher" (Muscipeta carinata), "from a specimen belonging to Mr. Brookes; since which, I have received two others from New Holland"; and the so-called "New Holland variety" of the "White-eyed Warbler" (Sylvia annulosa), described by George Caley. Further, of great significance are the two birds noticed from specimens collected by Allan Cunningham, the famous natural historian and His Majesty's Botanist in New South Wales, who sent the specimens to Swainson: the "Black & White Robin" (Petroica bicolor) and the "Golden-eared Parrakeet" (Leptolophus auricomis). The latter had only recently been pictured in Edward Lear's Parrots, but Swainson criticises the "peculiarly inappropriate" name Lear gave it.Charmingly, three Australian butterflies are also figured here, two for the first time. The first is the "Cressida Butterfly" (Cressida Heliconïdes), from two in his own collection and 'received from Van Diemans Land'. The other two, the Australian Jasia-Butterfly (Jasia Australis) and the Australian Burnet (Heleona fenestrata), are both recorded as being collected on the north-west coast of Australia by Allan Cunningham on the King voyage.Not only is Swainson's important work rarely offered, very few examples in contemporary bindings seem to have survived as complete sets, as here: it is more commonly seen in parts, even as single volumes. This work is not in Ferguson, who did note Swainson's work in cataloguing Elizabeth Bligh's shell collection for auction in 1822 (Ferguson, 879). Sitwell lists the first series as having one hundred and ninety eight plates, but all copies of which we are aware, including the copy in the State Library of South Australia, have one hundred and eighty two plates, as here. Very occasional light foxing and toning.

        Sociedad Económica de La Rioja Castellana. Construcción del camino Logroño-Santander para la exportación de vino. Tramo Logroño-Fuenmayor ].

      La Rioja, 1801-1833. - ENVIRON 200 DOCUMENTS MANUSCRITS (approximativement 175 groupés en liasses et plus d'une vingtaine séparés). En feuilles sans reliure. Précieuse réunion de documents issus de la Société Economique de La Rioja, relatifs à la construction d'une grande route entre Logroño et Santander pour faciliter l'exportation du vin. La construction de cette voie était l'objectif principal de la Société depuis sa création en 1783, lorsque les récoltants de 52 communes de la Rioja se réunirent pour étudier ensemble les moyens d'améliorer leur résultats économiques. " ( ) Uno de los fines mas dignos y mas loables que se propuso en los principios de su instalacion [la Sociedad Rioana], fue hacer lo más extensiva posible la circulación de los licores, y demás productos del suelo de Rioja, y con particular aquellos, y para ello trató de caminos que le facilitasen á los puertos de la costa de Castilla, emprendiendo desde luego el que debía tener comunicación con Santander como mas inmediato ( ). La Rioja por medio de este tráfico, extrayendo sus licores y demás frutos sobrantes fuera de la Península, mudaría de aspecto, adquiriendo nuevos capitales, que podría luego emplear, en la misma industria ù otras analógas a su territorio, con que convidan su situación y su fecundidad" (Oración). Les travaux commencèrent en 1790 lorsqu'un décret royal désigna la Société comme responsable de la construction du chemin et de ses embranchements. Malheureusement, la construction de la route se heurta à de nombreux obstacles politiques, administratifs et économiques qui retardèrent son exécution pendant plusieurs dizaines d'années. La plupart des documents présentés ici, qui couvrent une période de plus de 30 ans, sont adressés ou ont été émis par Martin José Fernández de Navarrete, commissaire des travaux exécutés dans la ville de Fuenmayor par la Société, dont il était le vice-directeur. Hydrographe, navigateur et historien, auteur d'ouvrages bien connus sur la bibliographie maritime espagnole ou la vie de Cervantes, ces documents montrent que Fernández de Navarrete poursuivit aussi inlassablement l'objectif de la Société: la divulgation du nom de La Rioja et de ses vins.

        A Report of the Trial of the Rev. Theodore Clapp, Before the...

      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. * 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).
