      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.

        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. [Attributes: First Edition]

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

      J. Cross, London 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.

      Paris, Rousseau, and J. B. Baillière, 1834-1841. 4to (32.0 x 25.0 cm). 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.

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.

        Algebra ili vychislenie konechnykh (i.e. English: "Algebra, or Calculus of Finites").

      Kazan, Universitetskaia tipografiia, 1834. 8vo. In contemporary full brown embossed cloth with four raised bands. Black leather title-label with gilt lettering to spine. Spine with gilt ornamentation. Ex-libris (A. A. Sidorov) pasted on to pasted down front end-paper. Wear to capitals and back hindge loose, however, firmly attached to book block. Last 10 leaves with discretly reinforced in margin. A fine and clean copy. (2), (I)-X, (5)-528, (2) pp. [lacking 1 blank beween p. X and p. (5)]. The exceedingly rare first edition of Lobachevsky's landmark work on algebra, constituting the very first Russian textbook on number theory in which he reiterated all basic notions of calculus by means of finite algorithms only. Using a synthesis of geometrical and analytical systems he developed a fundamentally new approach to solving equations: the approximation of the roots of algebraic equations, computing the roots of a polynomial by squaring them repeatedly, a method suggested by Newton and in 1781 touched on by Euler. It is the only substantial book published by Lobachevsky, the founder of non-euclidian geometry.The majority of Lobachevsky's works on non-Euclidean geometry and other mathematical and scientific fields were confined primarily to journals and small pamphlets. This is the only comprehensive book to appear in his life-time, and shows his radical approach to solving equations using a synthesis of geometrical and analytical systems. Belgian G. P. Dandelin and Swiss C. H. Graeffe independently discovered the same method of squaring roots and it is often referred to as the Dandelin-Gräffe method. It was, however, proved by Alston Householder in 1959 that Lobachevskii came up with the solution first: Although Lobachevskii's work bear the date 1834 it was already in the hands of the censors in 1832, (Householder: Dandelin, Lobacevskii, or Graeffe?) and most of it had been composed as early as 1825, thus Lobachevsky preceeded Dandelin and Gräffe by a several years. OCLC lists only one copy, at Harvard. We have been able to locate two further copies at the National Library of Russia and Russian State Library.

        Finden's Illustrations of the Life and Works of Lord Byron. With original and selected information on the subjects of the engravings by W. Brockedon

      London: John Murray, 1833-1834. A beautiful overlap of literature and travel description, being a tour through Mediterranean and Continental sites of interest in the life and tales of Lord Byron. Brief biographical descriptions are scattered throughout. Edward Francis Finden's masterful series of steel engravings from the works of J.M.W. Turner, William Westall and other leading landscape and portrait artists of the day capture the dreamy and romantic qualities of Byron's poetry. Scarce first edition. Three volumes, large octavo, contemporary half morocco with gilt panelled spines, marbled boards; engraved title page of one volume is frayed along the fore-edge, occasional mild foxing and offsetting, boards rubbed but a handsome near-fine set nonetheless.

        A History of Egyptian Mummies, and an Account of the Worship and Embalming of the Sacred Animals by the Egyptians; with Remarks of the Funeral Ceremonies of Different Nations, and Observations on the Mummies of the Canary Islands, of the Ancient Peruvians, Burman Priests etc.

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1834. FIRST EDITION. Quarto, pp.xxii, 264 [2]. With a hand-coloured frontispiece illustration of a mummy, and 12 plates at the rear of the volume, including two further coloured plates. In original grey paper-covered boards with original cream paper title label to upper board. Recently re-backed to style with textured green cloth and a cream paper title label to spine.Some wear to fore-edges; very good indeed. Pettigrew was a London surgeon who became increasingly interested in Mummification during the 1830's, evetually giving up medicine altogether in 1854 in order to concentrate on his antiquarian interests. He states in the introduction that he had not come across a comprehensive modern book on the subject in any language, and therefore wrote one himself based on his own experience of dissecting various mummies, including one particularly pristine exampe from Thebes, shown as the frontispiece. His work remains a cornerstone of the subject in English.

CASILEAR.| ENTERED ACCORDING TO THE ACT OF CONGRESS FOR THE YEAR 1834 BY GEORGE P. MORRIS IN THE CLERK'S OFFICE OF THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK.

      [New York: 1834 - Broadside, 9" x 13", printed on heavy stock. Black and white steel engravings featuring lifelike portraits of George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, and Andrew Jackson. The portraits surround a pier-table with a large mirror behind it, reflecting a statue of the Goddess of Liberty, and surmounted by the American Eagle with banners. The small steel engravings are by J.W. Casilear; they are placed upon a background designed by Robert W. Weir which contains fine perpendicular lines and a damasque pattern. Light age toning, minor dusting, a few very small spots of foxing. One small archival verso repair to small closed edge tear. Very Good. Robert Walter Weir [1803-1889], a New York native, devoted himself to painting at an early age. He joined the staff of the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1834 as a teacher of drawing, and remained on its faculty until 1876. John William Casilear [1811-1893], of New York City, began his career in the 1820s working under engraver Peter Marshall. Although he worked as an engraver through the 1850s, he is most famous for his landscape paintings. His work is displayed at several of the most prestigious museums in the country, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the National Gallery of Art.
