Pages 169 to 210 of the Appendix, are devoted to an analysis and vocabulary of the Chippewa language." (Howes, S187; Sabin, 77878; Graff, 3698Our code number = TB26959

In appearance he was exceedingly like a little, old, gray cuddy-a nice kindly body, with a clear, soft Scotch voice . Everybody loved Dunlop; and, with the single exception of a relation who was always trying to swindle him, there was no one whom Dunlop did not love. (Journal of Henry Cockburn, 1. 310-11) See ODNB.

      [Mexico. Feb. 4, 1834].. Broadsheet, 8 x 11 1/2 inches, integral blank leaf present. Dampstain in lower right corner, light fold lines. Clean. Very good. An important decree by vice president and temporary acting president of Mexico, Valentin Gomez Farias, for the relief of oppressed citizens and unemployed soldiers. This act reiterates the intentions of a similar April 6, 1830 decree which stated the government's wish to relieve suffering caused by the country's disorganized administration by helping citizens take up government lands in Coahuila and Texas. This February 1834 act was in turn reinforced by an April 11, 1834 act which clarified the administration of such new colonies as might appear. Quite rare. "Streeter locates only one copy besides his own. A highly interesting decree...Here we learn that preference will be shown to soldiers and politicians thrown out of work by the termination of the revolution" - Eberstadt. STREETER TEXAS 812. ARRILAGA 1834, p.47. EBERSTADT 162:330.

        Barber's Picturesque Illustrations of the Isle of Wight Comprising Views of every object of interest on the Island Engraved from Original Drawings Accompanied by Historical and Topographical Descriptions [Signed by Swinburne and by Maxwell Gray / Mary Gleed Tuttiett]

      London: Simpkin and Marshall, [1834]. First edition. William Henry Bartlett, Henry Winkles, Samuel Fisher, Edward Radclyffe, William Wallis, George Jones, James Tingle, William Westwood. [1834], 1834. A Very Good copy of the scarce first edition, first printing, rebound in three-quarter green leather with the spine decorated, lined, and lettered in gilt (edge wear to boards -- including some rubbing through at the edges, rubbing to the surface of the marbled boards, splash stain to the title page's lower left corner which also touches the adjoining fold-out map's margin -- not affecting the illustration or the lettering), with 40 steel engravings by William Henry Bartlett, Henry Winkles, Samuel Fisher, Edward Radclyffe, William Wallis, George Jones, James Tingle, and William Westwood. [A few of the delicate tissue guards are lacking, a few have some wrinkling, chip, or tear, and a few are loose but present.] This copy has been SIGNED BY ALGERNON CHARLES SWINBURNE AND BY MARY GLEED TUTTIETT on the front free endpaper, the Isle of Wight's two most famous residents. [The book's pastedown has been signed “N [?] Aitchison 1834”, who we presume to have been the first owner of this rare copy, the Aitchisons being an old Isle of Wight family. Aitchison's having dated the book, of course, confirms this copy as being a true copy of the first edition] Mary Gleed Tuttiett wrote under the pseudonym "Maxwell Gray" and achieved great fame with her 1886 novel "The Silence of Dean Maitland". Set in a fictionalized Isle of Wight, the tale centers around a young clergyman who kills the father of a young woman that he, the clergyman, has made pregnant and who then allows his best friend to be wrongly convicted for the crime. The novel provided the basis for a stage play and for three films. One of England's great Poets, Algernon Charles Swinburne was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in every year from 1903 to 1907 and again in 1909, never winning the Prize. Other famous Isle of Wight residents have included Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Charles I of England [as a Prisoner], Charles Dickens [who rented a summer house there], survival expert Bear Grylls, Robert Hooke, Jeremy Irons, David Niven, Henry Sewell - New Zealand's first Prime Minister or Premier, and many others. A Rare copy of the first edition, with a date confirming this copy as such, SIGNED BY TWO OF THE ISLE'S MOST FAMOUS PERSONAGES, ALGERNON CHARLES SWINBURNE AND MAXWELL GRAY [MARY GLEED TUTTIETT]. RARE INDEED.

        Dai Nihon Yochi Benran

      Tenpo 5. 1834.. TWO VOLUMES, 76 double page color woodblock maps (41+35), 10 1/8 x 7 inches (26 x 18 cm), Japanese accordion style binding with decorative embossed paper covers. There is worming to many, but not all, of the pages, occasional light soiling to margins, covers quite worn. This beautiful woodblock atlas begins with a map of Japan, which is followed by maps of the individual provinces, and finally a map of the world. This map emphasises the effects on geographic knowledge of Japan's closure to outside influence, featuring California as an island, and a mapping of Australia (marked "megaranika" presumably relating to the color of the inhabitants and joined to New Guinea to the north and to Antarctica at the south) which was profoundly out of date. New Zealand does not appear on the map. .

        British Phaenogamous Botany; or, Figures and Descriptions of the Genera of British Flowering Plants. 394 hand-coloured plates

      Oxford: by the author, 1834 onwards. Published 1834-1840, volume 1 states 2nd edition. The original owner, a Charles Cooke, bound the 6 volumes with the plates arranged to an order that is not immediately apparent, thus each volume was made up from a mixture of the plates and text of all six volumes. However volumes "2 & 6" are lacking & these would have contained a mixture of 115 plates from all the volumes. Thus what we offer is 394 random hand coloured plates with the accompanying text bound into four volumes half green calf. With a matching index volume, this annotated. Charles Cooke has re-numbrered each plate in ink on the top left hand margin - well outside the plate mark; 14 of the plates bear ink annotations within the plate. The plates very clean. Interleaved throughout. The bindings rubbed but sound.

        Results of Astronomical Observations Made During the Years 1834, 5, 6, 7, 8, at the Cape of Good Hope; Being the Completion of a Telescopic Survey of the Whole Surface of the Visible Heavens Commence in 1825

      Smith, Elder and Co. "[Herschel] arrived in Cape Town on 15 January 1834 and set up a private 21 ft (6.4 m) telescope at Feldhausen at Wynberg. Amongst his other observations during this time was that of the return of Comet Halley. Herschel collaborated with Thomas Maclear, the Astronomer Royal at the Cape of Good Hope, and the two families became close friends. Herschel returned to England in 1838, was created a baronet and published 'Results of Astronomical Observations made at the Cape of Good Hope' in 1847. In this publication he proposed the names still used today for the seven then-known satellites of Saturn: Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Titan, and Iapetus. In the same year, Herschel received his second Copley Medal from the Royal Society for this work". This volume is in very good condition.  It has been professionally rebacked in brown cloth, retaining the original ribbed brown cloth boards with their extensive blind stamp decorations.  The original boards show wear to corners and mild shelf scuffing.  The contents are crisp, clean, and bright with all plates, illustrations, and tables intact.

        A Practical Treatise on Locomotive Engines Upon Railways

      The rare first English language edition (preceding the less scarce American) of an important early work on locomotive engineering, based on empirical research conducted by the author with Edward Woods on the Liverpool and Manchester railway in 1834, offered complete with half title page and the 4 b/w copper plate engraved folding plates done by S. Porter for the edition, in the original fuchsine cloth boards with early rebacked, matching fuchsine calf spine with gilt letters, retaining the original endpapers, and with bound-in pamphlet from John Weale of recently published works, this book described on p. 2. The front endpaper has a gift inscription from James Thomson, sited in Lightmoor, the village in Telford, Shropshire, dated June 27, 1836 to his cousin George Thomson [1816-94], civil engineer, later, manager for New British Iron of their North Wales ironworks, son of the prominent engineer, James Thomson (an early member of the Institute of Civil Engineers) who worked with Thomas Telford and whose manufactory works were in Calcotes and Lightmoor. EDITION NOTE: Title (near complete): A Practical Treatise on Locomotive Engines Upon Railways; a Work intended to show the Construction, the Mode of Acting, and the Effect of those Engines in conveying Heavy Loads, with Practical Tables, giving at once the Results of the Formulæ; founded upon a great many New Experiments, made on a large Scale, in a Daily Practice on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, with many different Engines and considerable Trains of Carriages, To which is added, An Appendix, showing the Expense of conveying Goods, by Locomotive Engines, on Railroads. Published in Paris in 1835 by Bachelier as, "Traité théorique et pratique des Machines Locomotives". DE PAMBOUR: published 44 papers on the steam engine [1837-45] and 17 papers on hydraulic turbines [1851-72 in the journal of the French Academy of Sciences. Relatively unknown today but his work coming after John Farey Jr. is considered the first, "serious attempt to investigate empirically the behavior of steam in an expansive engine" [Sadie Carnot] and was called by Robert H. Thurston, "the first logical theory of the steam engine" with its calculation of work done under a set of operating conditions [p. 456]. The Rankine cycle replaced de Pambour's formulations. The centerpiece of the work is its notable section considering resistance along the railway, the engine separately from the load. FORMAT: Publisher's fuchsine (traditional magenta) pebbled cloth boards, spine-early rebacked-in fuchsine calf with gilt letters on spine, sewn with the original maize endpapers.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JOHN TYLER TO JOHN COALTER, RESPONDING TO PUBLIC REACTION TO HIS ACTIONS AGAINST PRESIDENT JACKSON]

      Washington. May 29, 1834.. [2]pp. plus integral address leaf. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Older repair to separation of leaves along central fold. Some loss to address leaf from wax seal. Lightly soiled. Very good. In a folio size blue half morocco and cloth clamshell box, spine gilt, leather labels. John Tyler (1790-1862) had, up to 1834, considered himself to be a Jacksonian Democrat and a supporter of the President, albeit an uneasy one. With Jackson's executive decision to cease federal deposits in the Bank of the United States and thus eliminate it, Tyler found himself firmly opposed to the President's actions. Like other members of the Senate, Tyler had no faith in the institution itself, but nevertheless felt that the President's removal of funds therefrom was illegal and unconstitutional. His decision to support the censure of Jackson and the restoration of deposits in the Bank of the United States was urged upon him by petitions and memorials from local merchants and by a specific instruction of the Virginia Assembly. Tyler writes here to John Coalter (1771-1838) who had retired from the Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals to reside at his estate of Chatham Manor in Fredericksburg. "I have been sensibly impressed with the honor conferred upon me by the citizens of Fredericksburg through the resolution adopted at their late meeting, and which you did me the favour to communicate. The approbation of those whom it is my chief pleasure to represent on the floor of this chamber s the only reward to which, as a public man, I have ever permitted myself to look. In my recent public course no other motive has governed me but a desire to uphold the Constitution and the laws, and to restrain Executive power already grown too great, within the courts which they prescribe. I did not doubt for a moment but that a majority of the people of Virginia would in this concur with me; and the result has shown that I was not mistaken." He notes that the minority opposing him includes "men of high intellectual power and unquestioned patriotism" but believes that events in Washington since the recent election have promoted a "greater unanimity in sentiment among our fellow citizens." He closes by saying: "Virginia - Her banner waves in the breeze with the Constitution and laws inscribed upon it. Will not her sons gather to it as one man and swear to uphold it or perish." Tyler would go on to serve as President from 1841 to 1845, elected as William Henry Harrison's Vice President and assuming the Presidency upon Harrison's death almost immediately after entering into office.
