        The Practice Of Courts-Martial , and other Military Courts

      Thacker, Calcutta 1834 - Respined, edgewear, tone, os. Solid copy. Half leather binding with marbled paper board, respined with original red label laid on. Bookseller's label on fep. Prior owner's signature on flyleaf and title page. Subtitle: with chapters on inquests, courts of requests, three trials, arson, larceny, and murder, with full evidence, rules of evidence, and other useful matter and tables. In his dedication "To the Officers of the Army of India", Captain Hough of the 48th Bengal Native Infantry and Deputy Judge Advocate General, thanks the 500 brother officers who subscribed for copies. Although he is also the author of Practice of Courts-Martial (1825), he notes that "The work is new of its kind. 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. Cases decided both in England and in India may be esteemed by the Army as Precedents: - the cases of Arson, Larceny, and Murder, with full evidence, may also be useful." Published in Calcutta by Thacker and London by Parbury, Allen. An uncommon book, and an important legal reference work for the Victorian-era British and Indian Armies.; 350 pages [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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.

        Al-Coranus s. lex Islamitica Muhammedis.Hamburg, “officina Schultzio-Schilleriana” [= the widow of Gottfried Schultz & Benjamin Schiller], 1694. 4to. With woodcut Arabic half-title. Set in roman, italic and Arabic types with incidental fraktur, Greek and Hebrew. Contemporary vellum.

      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.

      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.

        Al-Coranus s. lex Islamitica Muhammedis.Hamburg, "officina Schultzio-Schilleriana" [= the widow of Gottfried Schultz & Benjamin Schiller], 1694. 4to. With woodcut Arabic half-title. Set in roman, italic and Arabic types with incidental fraktur, Greek and Hebrew. Contemporary vellum.

      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.

        Historia Antiqua y de las Conquista Mexico

      5 volumes: Volume 1, ix+584 pages; Volume 2, 603 pages; Volume 3, 527 pages; Volume 4, 694 pages, Volume 5 is the scarce atlas unpagintated with 18 plates and large fold out map. Octavo (9" x 6 1/4"). Bound in half leather with marbled boards. 1st edition. Orozco y Berra entered the College of mines, and in 1834 was graduated as a topographical engineer. He afterward studied jurisprudence in the seminary at Puebla, and was admitted to the bar in 1847. He was sent to the city of Mexico in 1851 to defend a lawsuit for the state, and in the next year appointed director of the national archives. He was secretary of public works from 1857 till the fall of the Liberal government, and in 1860 was professor of geography and history in the military college. 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. He became a member of the Royal geographical society of Madrid and numerous foreign and Mexican scientific associations. He was one of the principal editors of Jose M. Andrade's Diccionario Universal de Historia y Geografia Mexicana (7 vols., Mexico, 1853-'5), and chief editor of the appendix to that work (3 vols., 1855-'6). He wrote Noticia historica de la Conjuracion del Marques del Valle, 1565 a 1568 (1853) ; Memoria para la carta hidrografica del valle de Mexico 1864); Geografia de las lenguas y Carta etnografica de Mexico, con apuntes para la immigracidn de las tribus (1865); Memorias para el plano de la ciudad de Mexico (1867) Materiales para una cartografia Mexicana (1871) Historia de la Geografia en Mexico (1876 and 1880); and Historia antigua de Mexico, his most famous work (1880-'1), in four parts Civilization, The Primitive Man, Ancient History, and ConquestCondition:Edges and corners rubbed through, corners bumped and chipped, hinges and spine ends rubbed, page ends chipped. Over all a good to very good copy.

        Manuel Pratique du Lithographe. Ouvrage qui a obtenu une médaille de la Société d'encouragement pour l'industrie nationale, au Concoures de 1830, augmente de notes sur les nouveaux procedes avec les lois & ordonnances qui regissent cette profession par M. Jules Desportes, Imprimeur Lithographe

      Paris: Chez l'auteur. 1834. First edition, xxxii,230,[8]pp., [jump in pagination from 203-208 but complete], the text is entirely in lithographic script, 4 plates of lithographic utensils and materials, the fore-edge of the upper board has suffered from what appears to be a spill of acid (this was no doubt done by a practising lithographer), this has burnt through the board and effected the blank fore-edge of the first 25 leaves, it is a little unsightly but doesn't effect the text, cont. quarter calf, over patterned paper boards, rubbed. "Jules Desportes was a lithographic printer of note who founded and managed the first lithographic trade journal, 'Le Lithographe, journal des artistes et des imprimeurs' (Paris and Rotterdam, 1837-48)... he exercised an important influence on French lithography in the 1830s and 1840s, and his 'Manuel pratique du lithographe' provides the best example I know of the work of a lithographic printer who used the process of lithography to produce his own book."—Twyman.

      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".

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. Burton, dated 1842.

        Panoramic View of King George's Sound, Part of the Colony of Swan River.

      London: J. Cross, 1834. Folding panorama, 180 x 2745 mm.; handcoloured etching and aquatint, captioned with title and "London Pubd. as the Act Directs Octr. 1834, by Robt Havell, 77 Oxford Street" This famously important and beautiful view, here in fine and bright condition, is very rare indeed. Dale's Panorama was the most ambitious print-making attempt to portray the Australian landscape undertaken in the first half of the nineteenth century. Very few complete examples survive today, no doubt because the aquatint is of an amazing length, almost three metres.The panorama shows the very beginnings of settlement in the west. Rarely is it possible to be witness at such a moment in a country's history: this astonishing and vivid panorama, published in 1834, was probably intended to excite interest in the fledgling settlement, and to promote immigration. It depicts 'Princess Royal Harbour, where the first settlement was established, and to the left of that King George's Sound and Oyster Harbour. The cleared area to the left is the present site of the "Old Farm" Strawberry Hill. The group of soldiers and natives on the right make up a party returning from a kangaroo hunt. Nakinna, chief of the King George Sound tribe, lived most of the time at the settlement, but eventually rejoined his people. He is probably the native shown wearing European clothes. The party of natives in the centre of the panorama are returning from a fishing expedition to the coast...' (The Colonial Eye, p. 37).Lieutenant Robert Dale (1810-1856), explorer and draughtsman, had arrived in Australia in June 1829 aboard HMS Sulphur, reaching the Swan River just six days after Stirling, the first lieutenant-governor, and the first West Australian settlers on the Parmelia. Dale was a member of the military detachment commanded by Captain Irwin sent to provide protection for the embryonic colony on the Swan River. He became acting assistant to the surveyor-general, John Roe, and made extensive and detailed expeditions throughout the Canning River, the York district and King George's Sound. His superb Panorama, which captures the unique beauty of the Australian coastline at the very beginning of settlement in the west, shows not only his excellent "on the spot" artistic skills but also his sound exploratory work. Dale River in Western Australia is named after him. Some wear to folds and a little light ageing to verso, otherwise a fine copy.

Title page and half title, 233 pp., 66 finely hand-coloured engraved plates [63 pp., 16 plates (colombelle); 116 pp.[numbered 1-112, 105-108], 31 plates (buccin); 8 pp., 3 plates (éburne); 6 pp., 2 plates (struthiolaire); 42 pp., 14 plates (vis)]. Contemporary half cloth over marbled boards. Spines with gilt title. Marbled endpapers.l A very rare large-paper edition of this beautifully executed work of great scientific (taxonomical and nomenclatural) importance containing the descriptions and illustrations of many new and poorly-known shells. The larger quarto edition is more suitable to the fine illustrations by Duménil, Roch, Vaillant, Kiener himself, and others, as this work was meant to be of both scientific and aesthetic value. Nissen only mentions the 8vo edition, but on original wrappers from Kiener's time the work was stated to be available in "Grand in-8°, papier grand-raisin...figures coloriées. 6 fr.", AND "Grand in-4°, papier vélin satiné, figures coloriées 12 [fr]", i.e. twice as expensive. Louis Charles Kiener (1799-1881) made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, the largest and most varied repositories of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his ‘Spécies'... This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1880, when eleven volumes had been completed" (Dance, A History of Shell Collecting). This volume covers several groups with generally large, and colourful species. The fine, hand-coloured plates by Maubert, Roch, De la Haye, and others are among the most beautiful illustrations ever published. Slight rubbing to the boards, a few sections in the text spotted, but generally rather clean; a few plates with some spots, but mostly clean. The colouring strong yet subtle, often bright, enhanced with gum arabic. Caprotti, p. 197; Dance, p. 137; Faber, pp. 64-65 (dates of publication); Nissen ZBI, 2183.
