        European Colonies, in Various Parts of the World,

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1834. viewed in their social, moral, and physical condition. 2 volumes, octavo (213 x 132 mm). Contemporary green calf, richly gilt spines with central floral motifs, dark red twin labels, concentric gilt and blind stamped ornamental panels on sides, gilt Greek-key roll tool on turn-ins, marbled edges and endpapers. Late 19th-century engraved rococo-style armorial bookplates of Henry James Wilkinson, with his inscription in volume I ("H. J. Wilkinson from his friend Chas. Lipscomb") and pencilled ownership inscriptions of Charles Henry Lipscomb; both men were clerics, Lipscomb in Norfolk and Wilkinson in Staffordshire, and had been at Oxford together; 20th-century bookplate of Peter and Margery Morris (Faskally, Perthshire). Extremities a little rubbed, touch of foxing in places. A very good set, with half-titles. First edition, well represented institutionally but commercially uncommon; a most attractively presented copy in a superior contemporary binding. John Howison (1797-1859) was a Scot who from 1818 to 1820 travelled in Quebec and Ontario, and whose Sketches of Canada (1821), published when he was still in his mid-twenties, "was an immediate success and is one of the best documentary sources for pioneer life in Canada" (ODNB). In 1822 he went to Bombay as an assistant surgeon with the East India Company and "was stationed in Poona in 1825, and belonged to the literary society there. Descriptions of the life of the foreign colony in Bombay and a journey through the Deccan with Major-General Sir Lionel Smith can be found in Howison's Foreign Scenes and Travelling Recreations (1825)" (ibid.). He also began contributing stories - largely "tales of terror" - to Blackwood's Magazine and has been described as "an important early contributor" (Anthony Jarrells in Romanticism and Blackwood's Magazine: 'An Unprecedented Phenomenon', 2013, p. 271). However, "he demonstrated that he was more than an author of light travel works and fiction with his unjustly neglected European Colonies … Viewed in their Social, Moral, and Physical Condition (1834). In this, his most ambitious work, Howison's analysis ranges over Africa, India, the Caribbean, and the Arctic" (ODNB). Volume I is given over to west and south Africa and India; volume II to a continuation of India, then the Arctic, West Indies, and British America. Howison is one of the most interesting British travel writers of the first half of the 19th century.

        PAXTON'S MAGAZINE OF BOTANY AND REGISTER OF FLOWERING PLANTS Volumes 1 - 15

      London: Orr and Smith, 1834. 1834-1848; vols. 1-15 (of eventually 16); 695 fine hand-coloured engraved and lithographed botanical plates after Frederick William Smith and Samuel Holden (some heightened with gum arabic, several double-page, tissue guards), 4 tinted lithographed ground plans, one uncoloured engraved plate, wood-engraved illustrations in the text, approximately 10 plates shaved, just touching imprint or image. Finely bound in contemporary green half morocco with attractive gilt decoration to the spine and red title labels. Bound up from parts resulting in volumes 11-14 being slightly taller with similar but variant spine decoration. All edges gilt; marbled end papers. Bindings in very good bright edition with slight wear only. Contents clean and tight, plates bright. A very good set. [Nissen BBI 2351; Great Flower Books, p.85; Stafleu TL2 7544] The Magazine of Botany was illustrated with fine botanical plates, of which Paxton notes in his introduction to volume 10 "the Embellishments of this work has been brought as near perfection as it is possible to attain. It is, indeed, suggested by some of our friends, that they are too beautiful; and that the plants they represent are not ordinarily so handsome as they are here depicted. Such a view, however, is a mistaken one: it arises from a rule which we adopt in the choice of subjects for our drawings, and which is, to have them prepared, whenever practicable, from specimens that are very favourably grown... on account of the stimulus it gives to those who see our plates, to grow their specimens to the like excellence". From 1826 to 1858 Paxton was chief gardener at the Duke of Devon's Chatsworth Estate, establishing it as "the most famous garden in England... [and in the Magazine] he described many of his plants and innovations at Chatsworth" (ODNB). Provenance: M.A. Boothe, nineteenth century ownership inscription in each volume.. First Edition. Half Leather. Very Good. Small 4to (17 x 23.5cm).

        Très Hauts et Très Puissans Moutards et Moutardes Légitimes

      Paris: Aubert, 1834. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Lithograph, 362 x 540 mm. Matted. A few pale stains, soft vertical crease in upper image. Published in L'Association Mensuelle, February 1834, Daumier's image is "viciously cruel, and full of hatred for the royal heirs and pretenders of the Bourbon line. Charles Philipon's caption is addressed to the most extreme royalists who fight and slaughter each other for the sake of these 'Augustes personnages' whom he simply considers brats and imbecile Bourbons. These are monster children with all the foul and evil characteristics they inherited. The catalogue of the Bibliothèque Nationale states that the persons in this print are the children of Louis-Philippe: Joinville, Aumale, Montpensier and Clementine. However, Provost believes they are: Otto I of Bavaria, future King of Greece; the Duke of Bordeaux (Duc de Chambord, then Henri V); Franz Joseph of Hapsburg, future Emperor of Austria; and Victoria, future Queen of England. The young prince, wearing a crown and holding a sword like a king, is commanding his army as he rides a wooden hobby horse. This pseudo-king is Henry V, the grandson of Charles X. His horse is branded with a coat of arms: an 'H' surmounted by a crown and fleur de lys, standing for the Duc de Bordeaux. Although destined to rule France, Henry V's chances to the throne were ruined by the rebellions in the Vendée of 1832. His mother, the Duchess de Berry, was imprisoned by Thiers while she was pregnant. Upon this news she was released and ridiculed, which terminated Henry's chances to the throne. As a result, the legitimists in France lost much of their political power" (Brandeis collection). Delteil 132.

        Le Magasin charivarique, muse comique, magasin de charges et de caricatures

      Paris, 1834. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Two parts in three volumes, 4to (305 x 240 mm). The first volume including nine lithographs by Daumier (D. 219, 220, 223, 224, 225, 229, 231, 234 and 237). Red half roan, title label on cover, green marbled boards. - The second volume (issued in two parts, plates 1-19 and 20-37) containing 14 'chalk-plate' prints (seven in each part), (Bouvy 23-36). Original printed paper wrappers. Scattered foxing and minor creasing at the sheet edges, some wear and staining to the covers. Provenance: William M. Ivins, Jr. (1881-1961), curator Department of Prints, Metropolitan Museum of Art (pencil note on pastedown, signatures on covers of wrappers); purchased from Goodspeed's Book Shop, 1986. VERY RARE COMPLETE SET. "The only large cuts that Daumier made, aside from two or three odd ones like le Carnaval and le Compliment, that came out in the Charivari, are the series of 'chalk plate' caricatures that the Charivari published in the early 1830s, many of which subsequently appeared, printed carefully on one side only of good paper, in the Magasin Charivarique... In certain ways these two series exhibit him at the height of his prowess. For sheer brutal dominant power of presentation there are few things to be found in the history of the relief print finer than a number of the early chalk plates" (William Ivins, "Daumier," in: The Colophon, part V, 1931).

        1834 Apocalypse Explained Emanuel Swedenborg Mysticism Revelation + PROVENANCE

      London: J. S. Hodson. 1834. - 1834 Apocalypse Explained Emanuel Swedenborg Mysticism Revelation + PROVENANCE “This I can declare: things that are in heaven are more real than things that are in the world.” Emanuel Swedenborg Emanuel Swedenborg was an 18th-century Swedish philosopher and mystic known for his ideas and treatises on the afterlife. He claimed to have a spiritual awakening in which he received revelations by Jesus to reform Christianity. He claimed that with that interaction with Jesus, he was given the ability to freely visit both heaven and hell as well as talk with angels, spirits, and demons. In his book, ‘Arcana Coelestia’, Swedenborg interprets Biblical passages from the Old Testament books of Genesis and Exodus. He claims his understanding to be the ‘inner sense’ of these works of God. But because of the popularity of ‘Arcana Coelestia’ he furthered his biblical interpretation in ‘Apocalypse Revealed’, his interpretation of the Book of Revelation. He was convinced that the Bible describes man’s transformation from a materialistic being to a spiritual being – a spiritual regeneration. In ‘Apocalypse Revealed [or Explained]’, he controversially begins by saying that the creation was a myth and not actually an account of the creation of the world, but the creation of man’s rebirth. He claims further that because Jesus Christ freed himself from materialism that humankind can be glorified in a similar fashion.

        Lives of the Necromancers: Or, An Account of the Most Eminent Persons in Successive Ages, Who Have Claimed for Themselves, or To Whom had been Imputed by Others, the Exercise of Magical Power.

      Frederick J. Mason,, London: 1834 - Pagination: xx, 465, [1, errata]. Rebacked modern calf, decorative floral gilt design to spine, black title label, modern marbled boards, marbled edges, title page with a tiny dot of foxing at bottom, else text is clean and crisp, about fine copy. Lacks extra advertisement leaf at end, as do most copies. Included with book is original bookplate (freely inserted) of Robert Crewe-Milnes, 1st Marquess of Crewe, Lord Houghton and The Earl of Crewe, British LIberal politician, statesman and writer (1858-1945). It is apparent The Earl of Crewe was a collector of the occult, as in research we have found other books of the sort with his bookplate in them. The opening sections discuss the various forms of augury and of contact with supernatural beings, followed by examples of magic and witchcraft from the Bible and from the classical periods of Greece and Rome. There follow sections on the Middle East, the European Dark Ages, which continue down through the alchemist. Each section features biographies of prominent magicians of that space or time. The concluding chapter is a lengthy history of witchcraft trials and of modern magicians including Cornelius Agrippa, Paracelsus, Cardon, Nostradamus, Dr. Dee, and an account of witchcraft trials including sections on King James I's ideas on witchcraft, the Lancashire witches, Urbain Grandier, and the trials of witches in Sweden and New England. By William Godwin (1756-1836), the famous radical author, husband of the feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, father-in-law of Percy Bysshe Shelley, and father of the author of "Frankenstein," Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.

        An Historical and Statistical Account of New South Wales..

      London, 1834. In good condition.. Two volumes, octavo, with a folding coloured map; in a good modern binding of half calf and marbled boards. First edition of a classic and influential study of the colony of New South Wales; there were several subsequent editions. The Westminster Review suggested that its title should read 'The History of Doctor Lang, to which is added the History of New South Wales'; however, it was among the most widely read and fully informed accounts of Australia.John Dunmore Lang (1799-1878) was, as D.W.A. Baker notes in the ADB, Presbyterian clergyman, politician, educationist, immigration organizer, historian, anthropologist, journalist, gaol-bird and, in his wife's words engraved on his statue in Sydney, 'Patriot and Statesman'. He arrived in the colony in 1823, possessed of enormous energy, and "pushed his way to power at once", as H.M. Green says, with "a great wave of popularity and dissension foaming at his bows and leaving a wide wake behind him". This is an attack on the emancipists, among others, by Wentworth's major rival, and is Lang's most important work. Although Lang shared with Wentworth the desire to encourage immigration and implement self-government, he in fact went further in wanting independence. Provenance: James Angas Johnson, with bookplates.

        Entdeckung continuirlicher, durch Wimperhaare erzeugter Flimmerbewegungen, als eines allgemeinen Phänomens in den Klassen der Amphibien, Vögel und Säugethiere (pp.391-400).

      Arch. Anat. Phys., 1834/5. - Berlin, G.Eichler, 1835, 8, pp.391-480, 3 lith. Taf., orig. Broschur unaufgeschnittenes Exemplar. First Report about the "Discovery of Ciliary Motion in Reptiles and Warm blooded Animals". William West Further we find in this volume Purkyne's: "Der microtomische Quetscher, ein bei microscopischen Untersuchungen unentbehrliches Instrument" (pp.385-391,6 Abb.). Bei Evertebraten und niederen Wirbeltieren war die Flimmerbewegung schon früher bekannt gewesen und vordem von einer Reihe von Forschern beschrieben worden. Aber Jan Evangelista Purkyne (1787-1869) Purkynë und Gabriel Gustav Valentin (1810-1883) waren die ersten, die diese Erscheinung bei höheren Tieren beobachteten.Diese Entdeckung rief in der gelehrten Welt große Überraschung hervor. Das war der Anfang einer groß angelegten Versuchsreihe an vielen Organen und Systemen sowie an zahlreichen Tieren. Purkynë und Valentin stellten fest, daß Flimmerbewegung bei Wirbellosen und niederen Wirbeltieren im Hautsystem besteht, bei höheren Wirbeltieren sodann im Verdauungstrakt, in den Atemwegen und dem Geschlechtsapparat sowie schließlich, wie Purkynë nachträglich konstatierte, in den Höhlen des zentralen Nervensystems. Sie verfolgten dann individuelle Entwicklung, Wesen und Form der Flimmerbewegung, ihre Größe, Geschwindigkeit und Richtung, ferner, wie lange sie sich nach dem Tod des Lebewesens erhält und wie auf sie verschiedene Einflüsse wirken, wie physikalische (Erschütterungen, Licht, Wärme, Kälte, Elektrizität) oder chemische, angefangen von biologischen Flüssigkeiten wie Blut, Harn, Galle, Eiweiß und Milch, bis zu den üblichen Arzneien und Giften wie Belladonna, Morphin, Opium, Strychnin, Blausäure. Ihre Forschungen zeigten, daß die Flimmerbewegung im Tierreich eine allgemeine Erscheinung ist und daß sie in den meisten vegetativen Systemen auftritt. Sie zeigt sich bereits in den Frühstadien der Entwicklung, ist weder vom Willen, noch vom Nervensystem, noch auch von der Muskeltätigkeit abhängig. Sie hängt weder von der Unversehrtheit des Gesamtorganismus ab - sie hält noch lange nach dem Tod an - noch von der Unversehrtheit des betreffenden Organs, denn sie überlebt auch an kleinen Gewebsfragmenten. Auf sie wirken nur lokale Einflüsse, d. h. sie ist von den örtlichen Verhältnissen abhängig, von der Unversehrtheit der Wimperhärchen selbst sie ist der Ausdruck ihrer eigenen Vitalität. Aufgabe der Flimmerbewegung ist der Transport einer Flüssigkeit oder kleiner Partikel in einer bestimmten Richtung. Die Feststellung, die Flimmerbewegung sei unabhängig vom Nervensystem, erregte gewisse Zweifel, z.B. bei J. Müller, der ansonsten diese Entdeckung hoch würdigte. Später zeigte sich aber, daß auch andere Formen der Bewegung unabhängig von Nerveneinflüssen existieren. Purkynës und Valentins Arbeit bleibt das klassische Werk über diese interessante physiologische Erscheinung, deren physikalisch-chemische Grundlage erst in letzter Zeit erhellt wird." V.Kruta, J.E. Purkyn, pp.91-93

        Ueber die Anlegung und Einrichtung der Irren-Heilanstalten mit ausführlicher Darstellung der Irren-Heilanstalt zu Siegburg.

      Berlin, Reimer, 1834, Gr.8, XIV, 472 pp., 1 Textholzschn., 4 lithogr. Tafeln mit schönen Ansichten von Siegburg, Perth, etc. 11 gefaltete, lithogr. Pläne, 1 gefalt. Tabelle, Leinenband unbeschnittenes, minimal fleckiges Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe. Carl Wigand Maximilian Jacobi (1775-1858) gehört zu den Pionieren der deutschen Psychiatrie. Schüler Hufelands u. Freund Goethes, versuchte er die Geisteskranken von dem Stigma des selbstverschuldeten Irreseins zu befreien, wie es noch von den christlich-philosophischen Ärzten seiner Zeit postuliert wurde. Seine Schöpfung, die Irren-Anstalt Siegburg "wurde die hohe Schule für die ganze Generation der damaligen Psychiater Deutschlands..."(Hirsch-H.) The asylum of Siegburg, the first who founded in Prussia and created by Jacobi under English influence, became the model for the German psychiatrists of the time. Jacobi, called the Esquirol of Germany, was a somatologist and proclaimed his respect for the brain by asserting that one needed no psychology to understand and treat mental diseases.Kirchhoff I, 83-94 Leibbrand-Walley, Der Wahnsinn, 496-97 Hirsch-H.

Weber editorum, 1 plate.Still in the year 1851 (the first fasciculus) "De pulso, resorptione, auditu et tactu" (1834) wasn't sold out, so the publisher Köhler printed to promote the sales of this title a new title leave "Annotationes Anatomicae et Physiologicae. Programmata Collecta. Fasciculi Tres. Lipsiae, prostat apud C.F.Koehler, 1851", and added it to the new Fasiculus II and III togehter with supplement sheets for the Index for the pre owner of "De pulsu, resorptione, auditu et Tactu" and created such a new title for sale. The paper of the part of 1834 and 1851 is slightly different and there is also no new print listed in Wilhelm Engelmann's Bibliotheca Medico-Chirurgica et Anatomico-Physiologica, Supplement (1867), p.271 and this explains why this item is such extremely rare. Engelmann erroneously names as publisher, but may then as source "(Leipzig, Ad. Winter)". But Callisen reports correct in volume 20, p.231 "De pulsu (p.1), resorbtione (p.13), auditu (p.25) et tactu (p.44-175). Annotationes anat. et physilogicae. Lips. prostat. ap. C.F.Köhler. 1834. ... Rec. Schmidt Jahrb. d.Med. Bd.4. 1834. Decbr. art.145. S.343.44 v. E.H.Weber ..." "A legendary rarity that has been unfindable for many decades -- no doubt because just about nobody but the egregiously eccentric G. H. Fechner paid any attention to it. Fechner, of course, named "Weber's law" after Ernst Heinrich, and gave the name "psychophysics" to the field. Ernst Heinrich Weber (1795-1878)"introduced new methods of measuring sensitivity, establishing perception as an experimental rather than an observational discipline. Working initially with the discrimination of lifted weights, Weber demonstrated that the smallest appreciable difference was a constant fraction of their actual weights. . (He went on to propose) a general law of discrimination that applied to all modalities but with fractions specific to the judgments involved. He introduced the use of calipers to measure two-point thresholds on the skin surface and found that sensitivity varied enormously, with greatest sensitivity around the lips and least on the trunk. The magnitude of the thresholds depended on the areas of the skin stimulated, which led Weber to introduce the concept of sensory circles -- areas on the skin surface that can result in the stimulation of a single peripheral nerve. His work represents a distinct shift in the psychology of perception from philosophy towards physiology, from speculation to experimentation, and from qualitative to quantitative approaches" Nicholas J. Wade, Perception and Illusion, pp.137-138" c.f.

        ALS - 6 eigenhändige Briefe mit Unterschrift. Marburg 28.I.1834 bis 12.X.1836.

      Marburg 28.I.1834 bis 12.X.1836, 13 Seiten gr.-4 mit 4 gesiegelten Umschlägen, 2 Briefe mit Siegel(resten) und Adresse. Sehr gut erhalten. Christian Heinrich Bünger (1782-1842), Chirurg und Anatom, Begründer der Marburger Anatomischen Sammlung, auch ein "geschickter und kühner Operateur" (Hirsch). An seinen Schüler, den Anatomen und Chirurgen Benedict Stilling (1810-1879, hörte 1828-1831 bei Bünger) in Kassel, mit dem er sich über Fachfragen austauschte.28.I.1834. Dank für Stillings "Schrift über die Gefäßdurchschlingung"."... Sollte Ihre Methode wie natürlich, auch keine so allgemeine Anwendung finden können, wie die Unterbindung, schon dadurch, daß sie mehr mechanisches Geschick von Seiten des Operateurs voraussetzt, so wird die Idee doch immer sehr gefallen ... und nie wieder ins Vergessen kommen ...Bei den Untersuchungen der Trombus Bildung welche ich an Thieren ... mit meinen Prosectoren fortsetze, bedienen wir uns auch bald Ihrer, bald anderer Methoden.Nicht umhin kann ich aber Sie mit einer neuen Verschließungs Art der Arterien bekannt zu machen, welche sehr leicht ausführbar, und mit welcher ich schon an einigen Schaafen geglückte Versuche gemacht ..." - Es folgt eine ausführliche, mit drei kleinen Zeichnungen illustrierte Beschreibung seiner neuen Methode unter Verwendung von "Gummi elasticum". Sektionen würden zeigen, ob das Material "verdaut wird, oder ob weitere interessante Erscheinungen wie bei nach außen vorgenommenen Transplantationen sich ergeben ..."8.V.1834. "... Mit Vergnügen habe ich Ihre mir gnädigst mitgetheilten Ansichten über die Metamorphosen des Trombus welche sich in Folge Ihrer neuen Gefäß Schließung neben bei ergaben ... Es ist dies allerdings ein Gegenstand welcher noch rechtgenaue Aufmerksamkeit weil er über manches andere mit Aufklärung giebt, verdient. Mit Ihnen kann ich nur ganz einverstanden sein, dass nach den ersten Veränderungen welche der Trombus durch einen gewissen Verdauungs Proceß erfährt später auch wirklich Blut und Gefäßbildung auf eine kurtze Zeit während seines Blüthe Zustandes darinn anzunehmen und diese bei recht glücklichen Injectionen de vasa vasorum darinn zu entdecken sein möchten ..." Es folgen Beobachtungen, die er vor Jahren bei einer Sektion nach einem Fall von "Aneyrisma aortae" gemacht habe.9.VIII.1834. "... Es thut mir sehr leid daß ich Ihnen auf Ihr dringendes Ansuchen: doch schnell die Resultate von den von mir vorgenommenen bekannten Untersuchungen einzuschicken, wegen einer drei wöchentlichen bedeutenden Krankheit ... nur kurz erwiedern kann: daß ich vor dem 20 Aug., an welchem Tage ich ... eine öffentliche Vorlesung in der naturforschenden Gesellschaft, wegen dem Geburtsfeste unsers Regenten, halten soll, an nichts weiter als an meine sich ungeheuer drängenden ... Geschäfte denken kann ..."8.IX.1834. "... Sehr lieb würde es mir sein wenn ich Sie bei meiner Durchreise durch Cassel am nächsten Donnerstag Morgen ... auf ein Stündchen sprechen, Ihnen gewisse Präparate in natura zu eigener Prüfung vorzeigen ... könnte.Nur durch mündliche und gemeinschaftliche Untersuchung werden wir uns hinreichend darüber verständigen können ob schon für jetzt Gebrauch von dieser Sache zu Ihrem Zweck zu machen sein wird, oder nicht.Da mir von jetzt an die interimistische Direction der Thier Arzney Schule übertragen ist so werde ich nach meiner Reise weitere und genauere Versuche durch feine Injectionen anstellen ..."20.XII.1834. "... Herzlichen Dank für Ihr mir gesendetes interessantes Buch und für die darinn mir erzeugte Ehre wie auch für die freundschaftliche Aufnahme und Bewirthung meiner Frau mit mir in Ihrer Behausung beim Antritt unserer Reise nach Hamburg ..." Es folgt ein ausführlicher Bericht von seinem Besuch des Hamburger Spitals, wo er bei seinem "Landsmann Frike" (Johann Karl Fricke, 1790-1841) hospitiert habe. "... Das auffallendste ... ist mir gewesen, daß Frike seit mehreren Jahren gar keine Ligatur bei den häufig vorkommenden und bei Amputationen zu machenden Gefäß Verletzungen mehr vorgenommen, sondern nur unter allen Umständen die Torsion und zwar immer glücklich gemacht haben will ... So wie Fricke die Torsion mir ... an Leichen zeigte mit seiner Pinzette gemacht, konnte ich nicht anders als großes Zutraun dazu gewinnen ... Seine Pinzett scheint mir hierzu ganz zweckentsprechend und die sichere Art der Ausführung nur hiervon abzuhängen ..."Fricke hatte als erster in Deutschland die Torsion mit einer von ihm eigens entwickelten Pinzette durchgeführt und 1830 in seinem Artikel "Über die Torsion" (Rust Magazin, 32: pp. 468-475) beschrieben.12.X.1836. Dank für die Vermittlung von Abgüssen eines "Orang utang Schädel" und "richtigen Menschenschädeln" aus Paris sowie mit der Bitte um die Weiterbehandlung einer "Stein Patientin", deren Fall er eingehend schildert.Mit einem von Stilling beschrifteten Umschlag "Correspondenz mit Hofrath Bünger zu Marburg".

      Paris: 1834. Two parts in three volumes, 4to (305 x 240 mm). The first volume including nine lithographs by Daumier (D. 219, 220, 223, 224, 225, 229, 231, 234 and 237). Red half roan, title label on cover, green marbled boards. - The second volume (issued in two parts, plates 1-19 and 20-37) containing 14 'chalk-plate' prints (seven in each part), (Bouvy 23-36). Original printed paper wrappers. Scattered foxing and minor creasing at the sheet edges, some wear and staining to the covers. Provenance: William M. Ivins, Jr. (1881-1961), curator Department of Prints, Metropolitan Museum of Art (pencil note on pastedown, signatures on covers of wrappers); purchased from Goodspeed's Book Shop, 1986. VERY RARE COMPLETE SET. "The only large cuts that Daumier made, aside from two or three odd ones like le Carnaval and le Compliment, that came out in the Charivari, are the series of 'chalk plate' caricatures that the Charivari published in the early 1830s, many of which subsequently appeared, printed carefully on one side only of good paper, in the Magasin Charivarique... In certain ways these two series exhibit him at the height of his prowess. For sheer brutal dominant power of presentation there are few things to be found in the history of the relief print finer than a number of the early chalk plates" (William Ivins, "Daumier," in: The Colophon, part V, 1931). From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

Story's Conflict of Laws, the first systematic treatise on the subject, is one of his greatest and most influential works. Warren says: "It is not too much to say that its publication constituted an epoch in the law; for it became at once the standard and almost the sole authority...[it] received the honor of being practically the first American law book to be cited as authority in English courts." Expanding on this latter point Marvin quotes "a late English writer" who says that "No work on international jurisprudence merited, nor received, greater praise from the jurists of Europe.

        Précis de la Campagne de Java, en 1811

      1834 - First edition of this important work on Java, illustrated with several folding maps. 1834. La Haye. Th. Lejeune. 8vo (215 x 130 mm). 1 [blank], x, 150, [6], 2 folding tables, and 6 large folding maps and planes bound at the end. Contemporary mottled calf over marbled boards, flat spine gilt in compartments, title direct-lettered gilt. A very clean and fresh copy, the folding maps in excellent condition. 5,000 $ First edition of this detailed account of the British invasion of Java in 1811, compiled by the Prince of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, and based on the firsthand accounts given to him by Major-General Knotzer and Colonel Nahuys, and the manuscript memoires left by Colonel Osten. As the auhor himself states in the preface, his work aims to add to the small literature on the short however fundamental campaign that altered the fate of South East Asia, while being a Dutch response to Major Thorn´s Memoir of the Conquest of Java (until then, the only proper account on the campaign). Prince Carl Bernard of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach (1792 – 1862), after distinguishing in the Battle of Waterloo, was appointed Chief Commander of the Dutch East Indies Army in 1848 and stationed in Java from 1849 to 1852. The plates, re-engraved after the ones in Thorn´s Memoir, include a map of Java; a plan of Batavia; the plan of attack on Fort Cornelis; a plan of the action near Weltevreden; a sketch of General Janssen´s position at Jatty, near Samarang; and a sketch of the Fortified Cratten, of the Sultan of Djoejo Carta. A rare book in the market although well represented at institutions; we haven’t been able to trace any copy having been sold at auction. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Précis de la Campagne de Java, en 1811

      First edition of this detailed account of the British invasion of Java in 1811, compiled by the Prince of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, and based on the firsthand accounts given to him by Major-General Knotzer and Colonel Nahuys, and the manuscript memoires left by Colonel Osten. As the auhor himself states in the preface, his work aims to add to the small literature on the short however fundamental campaign that altered the fate of South East Asia, while being a Dutch response to Major Thorn´s Memoir of the Conquest of Java (until then, the only proper account on the campaign). Prince Carl Bernard of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach (1792 - 1862), after distinguishing in the Battle of Waterloo, was appointed Chief Commander of the Dutch East Indies Army in 1848 and stationed in Java from 1849 to 1852. The plates, re-engraved after the ones in Thorn´s Memoir, include a map of Java; a plan of Batavia; the plan of attack on Fort Cornelis; a plan of the action near Weltevreden; a sketch of General Janssen´s position at Jatty, near Samarang; and a sketch of the Fortified Cratten, of the Sultan of Djoejo Carta. A rare book in the market although well represented at institutions; we haven't been able to trace any copy having been sold at auction.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Mannheim, 1834. - [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - „Eisenlohr studierte 1817 an der Universität Heidelberg Mathematik und Physik. 1819 wurde Eisenlohr zum Professor für Mathematik und Physik am Lyceum in Mannheim ernannt. 1840 übernahm er am Polytechnischen Institut in Karlsruhe eine Professur für Physik. Als Wissenschaftler wurde Eisenlohr mit optischen Untersuchungen bekannt. Diese Forschungsergebnisse veröffentlichte er in seinem Lehrbuch der Physik. Eisenlohr gründete die erste Gewerbeschule in Baden in Mannheim und 1847 eine Schule für Uhrmacher im Schwarzwald. Bis zu seiner Pensionierung 1865 förderte Eisenlohr im Großherzogtum maßgeblich und erfolgreich das Schulwesen; besonders die Berufsschulen lagen ihm sehr am Herzen" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - ge Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        A Narrative of the Supposed Inhuman Murder of an Infant, By Its..

      1834. London, 1834. 10" x 7-1/2". London, 1834. 10" x 7-1/2" Broadside Account of an Infanticide in London [Broadside]. [Infanticide]. [Chalice, Harriet]. A Narrative of the Supposed Inhuman Murder of an Infant, by Its Mother! With Full Particulars of Her Confession. [London]: G. Smeeton, Printer, 74, Tooley Street, [c.1834]. 10" x 7-1/2" broadside. Single-column text below headline. Moderate toning, some edgewear and a few tiny chips, a few creases to corners. $650. * This broadside offers an account in two parts. The first part, "extracted from the Weekly Dispatch, Sept. 7, 1834," is an account of the discovery of the baby's body prior to the coroner's inquest. The second part, from the Morning Advertiser, September 9, 1834, records the conclusions of the inquest. The defendant, Harriet Chalice, a household servant, was declared guilty of concealing the birth of a child, who was stillborn. Having hid her pregnancy, she delivered her baby herself, then threw the baby out of a window. Chalice's fate is unknown; the broadside says she "became exceedingly ill" after disposing of her baby and "sunk into exhaustion...without the least hope of recovery." OCLC locates 1 copy (Harvard Law School).
