        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. Uncommon in the trade, with a reasonably nice association. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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.

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.

        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.'

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.

      Ferguson 3372; Sweet & Maxwell VI, p. 11. Rare first and only edition of the first Australian treatise on bankruptcy. While in Australia, Burton attempted to ameliorate the harsh treatment of convicts at Norfold Island, where he was sent in 1834 "to try some convicts who had mutinied". Many were sentenced to death, but as no clergy were on the island, Burton reprieved them until their cases could go before the executive council. He endeavoured also with some success to improve the miserable condition of the convicts. Pencil note on recto first fly-leaf; spine rubbed. Fine copy presented by the author to R.C.

      Hamilton, Europe and the Arab world 33; Philologia orientalis 360; Schnurrer 376; VD17, 7:707063Q & 3:314172A. First and only edition of Hinckelmann's Arabic text of the Qur'an, the second edition of the Arabic Qur'an, the first actually available to readers and the only convenient edition before 1834, with a 36-page Latin introduction by the editor making extensive reference to the earlier literature. The first complete Arabic edition of the Qur'an was printed at Venice ca. 1537/38, intended for distribution in the Middle East, but the entire edition was thought to have been destroyed until one copy turned up in the 1980s. Hinckelmann's edition was therefore the first edition available to European scholars, missionaries or Islamic readers. It was followed by Ludovico Marracci's Arabic and Latin edition published at Padua in 1698, whose two folio volumes and extensive (anti-Islamic) commentary made it both expensive and inconvenient to use. The editions published at St Petersburg (from 1789) and Kazan (from 1803) for the use of Islamic groups in the Russian Empire were almost unknown in Europe, so the present edition remained the primary source for European knowledge of the Qur'an for 140 years, until Flügel's 1834 Leipzig edition. With two contemporary or near contemporary owner's inscriptions, including “H[?]. C. Maraccu/ii” on a free endleaf. Possibly the present copy was owned by the well-known Italian orientalist and professor of Arabic Ludovico Maracci (1612-1700), whoe edited the first scholarly published Quran in Arabic along with an accurate Latin translation. In very good condition, with an occasional minor spot, a faint marginal water stain in 10 leaves near the end and the paper very slightly browned, and only slightly trimmed, preserving an occasional deckle. The binding is somewhat rubbed and stained but still good.

        Die Sternschnuppen sind Steine aus den Mondvulkanen, die einen Durchmesser von 1 bis 5 Fuss haben, und welche bei 8000 Fuss Geschwindigkeit in 1 Secunde nicht wieder auf den Mond zurückkommen, und die dann mit Millionen um die Erde herumlaufen..

      Four lithographed plates (one folding). 1 p.l., xvi, 80 pp. 8vo, early wrappers (some foxing). Bonn: E. Weber, 1834. First edition of this interesting book; from the library of Carl Friedrich Gauss. Benzenberg (1777-1846), professor of mathematics at the Lyceum in Düsseldorf, performed many original scientific investigations in the fields of astronomy, physics, and geodetics. He is most famous for being the first to demonstrate that the earth revolves, a problem which had perplexed scientists since Copernicus. Gauss and Benzenberg were at Göttingen at the same time and surely knew each other. This is one of several works by Benzenberg on the origin of meteorites. He agreed with Chladni's theory concerning their cosmic origins. But Benzenberg used his data to formulate a theory that shooting stars are stones from moon volcanoes. Three of the plates depict several meteorites and their paths in the sky. The folding plate contains a fine map of the moon. Very good copy with the stamp of the Royal Observatory at Göttingen on half-title (with release stamp), title, and on the backs of the plates. While this copy does not have the stamp of the Gauss Bibliothek, it is from Gauss's library. ❧ D.S.B., I, pp. 615-16. Not known to Whitaker, Mapping and Naming the Moon or Ashworth, The Face of the Moon.

On the return of Juarez to Mexico in 1861, Orozco became assistant secretary of public works, and in the next year took charge of the portfolio, and after the abolition of that office he was commissioned to write a memoir on native languages. In May, 1863, he was appointed associate judge of the supreme court, and when the government abandoned the capital before the French army he remained in Mexico to work for a living. He refused a seat in the junta de notables, but later, when many distinguished Liberals thought it their duty to assist the new imperial government, he accepted office. In November, 1865, he became assistant secretary of public works and director of the National museum, and in August, 1866, he was appointed professor of national history in the College of mines. On 25 September of that year he was appointed councilor of state, and in the conference at Orizaba in November he was one of the few frankly to express the opinion that the empire could no longer be maintained. After the capture of the capital by the Republican forces, Orozco was sentenced to four years' imprisonment, but in November of the same year the sentence was commuted. He was pardoned in 1868, and, obtaining through his friends a post in the mint, devoted himself to scientific studies, and was soon an acknowledged authority on ancient Mexican history and hieroglyphics.
