        The angler in Wales, or days and nights of sportsmen.

      1834 - Richard Bentley. 1834. 8vo. Sometime rebound in half brown morocco, gilt rules to sides, spines with gilt raised bands, gilt panels and lettering, marbled endpapers, marbled edges; pp.xvi + 336, vii + 348, engraved frontispieces, occasional text engravings; front hinge of vol I tender, vol II recently rejointed, spines a little sunned, frontispieces foxed, otherwise very clean internally, very good. Provenance front pastedowns of Henry Edmund Taylor of Whickham near Newcastle upon Tyne, a prodigious nineteenth century collector. First edition. Scarce. Thomas Medwin (1788-1869) was an English poet best known for his biographies of his cousin Shelley and his close friend Byron. Both poets make brief appearances in this book, which is a defence of the art of angling and an ode to the countryside, mainly in the form of a dialogue between two characters who represent two sides of the author's own personality. Walton is his model, but the Romantic philosophical tone is very much his own. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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]

        The West India Sketch Book.

      - London, Whittacker & Co., 1834. 8vo, 2 volumes. Contemporary red half-morocco over marbled boards; pp. x, [2], 324; vi, [2], 391, 2 engraved maps (one as frontispiece), rose-tinted aquatint frontispiece, nine engraved plates (one tinted, one printed in red and hand-coloured, one printed in blue, one hand-coloured), wood-engraved vignettes and musical notations in the text, binding with wear and restorations; occasional foxing to plates, text evenly toned. Very rare first edition, the issue with plates of an anonymously published travelogue of the West Indies in the 1820s, written by an abolitionist, who, before setting off from London read his way through the literature about slavery and the West Indies 'at an anti-slavery emporium in Piccadilly … [and] ransacking the dusty shelves of numerous book-stalls' (vol.I, p. 8). The otherwise and strangely unknown author then visits a good part of the West Indies, observes nature, living and economic conditions of the inhabitants, of African and other origin. He notes customs, language, and even music of the 'Caribs', and was probably responsible for the delightful illustrations as well. 'The picture we have attempted to give in the foregoing pages of the character and condition of the negroes, as they appeared under our own observation during the residence of several years in the West Indies, must clearly demonstrate that they were not the degraded, ill-used beings they were generally represented, and that the planters were not so destitute of feelings of humanity as they have been supposed,' Trelawney Wentworth concludes on p. 383 of vol. II. An appendix gives statistical data on land use, black and white population and agricultural products of the islands visited. - On the final page is a note by the publishers, saying that 'on the 1st of July, will be Published, Additional Illustrations to the West India Sketch book,' and indeed we have seen the work containing only text illustrations, and incomplete copies, lacking some of the plates.

        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]

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."

        Letter on Colonization, Addressed to the Rev. Thornton J. Mills, Corresponding Secretary of the Kentucky Colonization Society by Hon. James G. Birney, Late Vice-President of the Kentucky Colonization Society

      Garrison and Knapp, Boston 1834 - First edition. 12mo. 46pp. Stitched printed self-wrappers. Inscribed in a contemporary hand on the front wrap: "Mr. M. F. Hait with the respects of J. H. Kimball." The top inch of the unprinted rear wrap torn away, small ink blot and small chip on the front wrap, bottom corners of the pages a little creased, still a nice and presentable at least very good copy. Birney was a successful lawyer, politician, and slaveholder in Kentucky and Alabama. He gradually came to believe that the problem of slavery could be solved by exporting slaves to a colony in Liberia. He worked for the American Abolition Society traveling throughout the South promoting the idea with only modest success.In this important pamphlet, published in the same year that he freed his remaining slaves, Birney expresses his renunciation of his long held belief in either the expulsion and forced colonization of the slaves or gradual emancipation, in favor of immediate abolition of slavery. Birney died in 1857 at the Raritan Bay Union utopian community in the company of fellow abolitionists and residents Theodore Weld, Angelina Grimke Weld, and Sarah Grimke. The presenter of this copy, J. H. Kimball, was also employed by the American Abolition Society, was an editor of the *New Hampshire Herald of Freedom*, and co-author with J. A. Thome, of *Six Months Tour in the West Indies 1837.*This text represents an important way-station in the evolution of the Abolitionist Movement.

        Black-bellied plover. Squatarola helvetica; Pluvialis squatarola (Linnaeus).

      - Pencil and watercolour (36.5 x 54.3cm) heightened with white and gum arabic. Numbered '4.37'. Framed and glazed: 83.5 by 66.5 cm. Superb original watercolour with fine contemporary provenance for John Gould's Birds of Great Britain. Henry Constantine Richter (18211902) was a zoological illustrator who produced numerous lithographs of birds and mammals, mainly under the employment of John Gould, an English ornithologist. Gould employs two illustrations of plovers in his book Birds of Great Britain, from which this plate is taken, to show that 'A greater transformation in the garb of birds does not exist than occurs in the spring and autumnal plumage of this bird. It is in the spring that the Grey (Black-bellied) Plover with its fine black breast flies over the eastern parts of England en route for countries further north.' An adult bird is depicted in winter plumage with a young bird born earlier in the year. With provenance: Frederick DuCane Godman ( 1834 1919) was an English lepidopterist, entomologist and ornithologist. He was one of the twenty founding members of the British Ornithologists' Union. Along with Osbert Salvin, he is remembered for studying the fauna and flora of Central America. Gould. Birds of Great Britain. London: 1873. Vol. IV, pl.37.

      Quick, printer. [1834] - Folio broadside with title above octagonal woodcut illus., 19 x 21cm, with 3 columns of text beneath; the odd crease. v.g. 38 x 24cm. Not recorded in the BM, on Copac or OCLC; no copies located. A satirical ?prayer? attacking the Whig government of Earl Grey, Lord Brougham, &c. for not fulfilling their promise of meaningful reform: ?P. [Parson] And thou, Broom, Grey, and All-talk, three persons under one pretence, we acknowledge our foolishness in our belief of thy promised endeavours in our course. C. [Clerk] Thou hast deceived us in all things, O Wigs. P. And O William [King William IV], hear thy people, and grant us thy help .? The woodcut illustrates Constitution Hill in the background with a flagpole flying the British Flag.

O dear! push away - see the Flag still flies upon Constitution Hill, though we?ve done all we can to Break the staff?.

        [Panoramic view of Rio de Janiero].

      Very rare panorama of Rio de Janeiro, taken from the Morro does Castello, after the design of Felix Taunay: splendidly engraved by Steinmann, heightened with bright fresh colours. The panorama us considered one of the very best of Rio de Janeiro: 'Uno de los ejemplares más importantes del género en la iconografía de Rio de Janeiro' (Eliza Linhares Borges and Víctor Mínguez, La fabricación visual del mundo atlántico 1808-1940, 2010); "O melhor panorama gravado do Rio de Janeiro na primeira metade do seculo XIX, aquarelado a mao" (Brasiliana Itau, pp.80-81). Indeed it is one of the most reliable topographical and architectonical renderings of the Brazilian city. The panorama profits from the participation of three of the most significant artists and engravers who recorded Brazilian iconography in the early 19th century; it is taken out of the designs of Taunay and Ronmy, and engraved by Steinmann with the collaboration of Salathe. Ronmy's oil painting was one of the first panoramas to be displayed in a rotunda in Europe, causing a great sensation in Paris. Steinmann had introduced lithography to Brazil in 1825 and Salathé engraved the views for his Souvenirs de Rio de Janeiro before the former returned to Basel in 1834 to carry on publishing his works.

      A primary source for slavery in Jamaica, five years before its legal abolition in 1834. Although the British parliament legally abolished the African slave trade in their territories in 1808, they did not legally abolish the ownership of slaves until 1834. The present last will and testament of the merchant Joseph Barnes (ca. 1765?-6 May 1829) of Kingston, Jamaica, made at nearby St. Jago de la Vega (now Spanish Town), then the capital of Jamaica, records his ownership of estates in St Catharine parish (surrounding St. Jago de la Vega). He traded extensively in cotton and was mayor of Kingston from 1823 to 1829.He left the largest estates with their slaves in the care of his brother Thomas: the Cumberland Pen estate of more than a thousand acres along with "all and every negro and other slaves thereunto belonging ..." and another smaller one, together nearly 500 slaves. He made provisions for the care of his wife Hannah and their daughter Charlotte Hannah Barnes (ca. 1800-1876) based on the income from these estates. The present official copy was made when the will was proved by a firm of "proctors" in Doctor's Commons, a society of lawyers in London.A small piece of the seal has broken off but still present, and the document shows slight wear at the folds and some dirt and spots, but is otherwise in very good condition.

Cruchley, c. 1834. Engraved map with original hand colouring, dissected and laid on linen, 550 x 670 mm, in original publisher's marbled paper case with printed label and publisher's catalogue, a couple of small stains else fine condition.

From 1834 his maps bear the imprint '81, Fleet Street' (as here), and thus from the note in the imprint on both map and case indicating Cruchley has recently moved, we can ascribe a date of circa 1834.

        The ministers and their cronies off to Botany Bay, and the Dorchester men returning.

      Also titled: The political drama, no. 33. London : George Drake, publisher, 12, Houghton-Street, Clare Market, 1834. One of a series 'Printed and Published by G. Drake, Clare-market.' Woodcut, printed recto of single sheet of wove paper, 345 x 255 mm, verso blank, the image strong and entire, faint foxinf to margin edges (not affecting text or image), a fine example. In this anonymous satirical cartoon of 1834, John Bull is depicted pushing out to sea a row boat containing ten politicians. The flag at the bow reads 'FOR BOTANY BAY'. The two oarsmen (a grinning Jack Tar, and another sailor puffing on a pipe) guide the boat towards a ship from which is returning another boat, containing two oarsmen and the six Tolpuddle Martyrs, five of whom are standing and raising their hats while cheering 'Huzza! Huzza!! Huzza!!! One Cheer more. Huzza!!!' Among the politicians are caricatures of Lord Chancellor Brougham, with two money-bags marked 'PENNY' and 'MAGAZINE' draped over his shoulders, and holding a rolled-up paper reading 'CHEAP LAW'. Brougham is being comforted by Melbourne, who exclaims 'Oh, what'll become of all my Relations, "My Tail" and "My Order." Oh! that I had done Justice while in my power.' The Chancellor of the Exchequer Viscount Althorp, with a sack bearing the word 'BUDGET' hanging around his neck, weeps and hangs his arms over the side of the boat. Elsewhere the Duke of Wellington declaims 'Never mind M-lb-n, we no doubt can get places among the Cannibals at Bottomhouse Bay, You can be useful at their Bludgeon fights, and I can learn them the art of Butchery.' While an Irishman and a Scotsman look on, John Bull addresses the politicians: 'This is as it should be. [...] You raised a Giant to suit your own deceitful purposes, and then ye wanted to crush him when he became conscious of his own strength; [...] You have been convicted by the Voice of Public opinion, and condemned to transportation to Botany Bay; Boys, instead of your intended Victims, [...] By-the-bye you all look nation well [sic] in your Convict clothes. Hurrah! Off she goes!!!' The following comment appears beneath the caption: 'These unfortunate Dorchester Men had been most unfairly dealt with. Who, he should ask, should really be in their places at this moment. Those persons who had used them for their own purposes ...... He thought that Earl Grey, Lord Brougham, the Noble Lord the Paymaster of the Forces, and the Right Hon. the Secretary for the Colonies, should be on board the Hulks in place of these unfortunate Men. - Fergus O'Connor in the House, April 16th, 1834.'

The Chapters on Inquests and Courts of Request have never appeared in any similar work. There are no works extant, I believe, on the subjects; except "Hutton" on Courts of Request, a similar work almost out of print.

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. It impressed English lawyers with the highest respect for [Story's] extensive learning.": Legal Bibliography 471. Warren, A History of the American Bar 545.

Plates darkened around edges, not unattractively; some plates with a bit of foxing, others quite free of it. => Very nice.
