        Remarks on Transportation and on a Recent Defence of the System; in a second letter to Earl Grey.

      London: B. Fellowes, 1834. Octavo, contemporary full polished calf, spine gilt with morocco label. Richard Whately was an enthusiastic agitator against transportation (his influential 1832 pamphlet Thoughts on Secondary Punishments led in part to the House of Commons select committee inquiry) this was founded on his belief that punishment and effective colonization were contradictory aims. Being an ardent penal reformer, he believed that prisoners should know the real meaning of their sentences and was therefore a supporter of certain sentences being irremissible. He became an enthusiastic phrenologist and had a cast of his head made at Oxford in 1831, submitting it to three phrenologists in all. He sympathized with George Combe's view of phrenology as the philosophy of the New Testament. It was another example of the compatibility of Christianity with the new sciences, and in particular a 'scientific' demonstration of man's moral faculty.

        Doctor

      1834. First Edition . (SOUTHEY, Robert). The Doctor, &c. London: Longman et al., 1834-38. Five volumes. Octavo, original green cloth, original paper spine labels, uncut. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $4500.First edition of SoutheyÂ’s anonymous miscellany The Doctor, best known for containing the first appearance in print of “The Three Bears.” “Any text of the story published before 1850 is a rare and desirable possession” (Quayle, 39).The Doctor was the last major work by this English poet laureate. SoutheyÂ’s “prose style has long been regarded as masterly in its ease and clarity. These qualities are best seen inÂ… the anonymously published seven-volume The Doctor (1834-47), a fantastic, rambling miscellany packed with comments, quotations, and anecdotes” (Kuiper, 1055). “The Three Bears,” based on a traditional tale, appears in Volume IV on pages 318-26; this version has a “Little Old Woman” instead of Goldilocks. Goldilocks would not appear as such until 1904; in a 1858 version, she is called “Silver-Locks” (Carpenter & Pritchard, 524). Different typefaces and type sizes are used in SoutheyÂ’s version to indicate different characters: for example, Papa BearÂ’s dialogue is printed in large Gothic type. Volumes I through V of The Doctor appeared during SoutheyÂ’s lifetime; Volumes VI and VII (not included here), edited by his son-in-law, were published in 1847, four years after SoutheyÂ’s death (Lowndes, 2460). Volume IV with 16-page publisherÂ’s catalogue dated June 1837. Without front free endpapers in Volumes I-III and V. Bookplates.Interior quite clean; mild wear to original cloth extremities, some chipping and wear to paper spine labels. Extremely good condition. Scarce.

        An Historical and Statistical Account of New South Wales both as a Penal Settlement and as a British Colony...

      London: 1834. Two volumes, octavo, with a folding map; in original green cloth with paper labels on spines. First edition. Lang, a Presbyterian minister, arrived in the colony in 1823. He was possessed of enormous energy, and "pushed his way to power at once", as H.M. Green says, with "a great wave of popularity and dissension foaming at his bows and leaving a wide wake behind him". This is an attack on the emancipists, among others, by Wentworth's major rival, and is Lang's most important work. Although Lang shared with Wentworth the desire to encourage immigration and implement self-government, he in fact went further in wanting independence. A very good copy.

He compiled all the ancient sources and commented on them, as well as discussing many examples of mummified remains investigated by or known to him. The work is illustrated by Georges Cruikshank (better known for his satirical drawings) that are the product of careful observation" (Peck). - With the bookplate of the British lawyer and politician Bernard John Seymour Coleridge, 2nd Baron Coleridge (1851-1927).

        [Autograph Letter, Signed, to George Pope Morris]

      [Np], 1834. Two pages, in ink, on recto and verso of octavo lettersheet. Old folds from mailing, otherwise very good. An excellent letter to ["Col."] George Pope Morris, sending thanks for ". . . the volume[s?] of your delightful miscellany which you have had the kindness to send me ... and ... to express the deep sense I entertain of the repeated ... esteem and good will which you have manifested toward me for years past. These derive particular value in my eyes from that character for intelligence and worth which you have so honorably cast[?] for yourself in the community...." Morris (1802- 1864) was cofounder (and eventually sole proprietor) of the NEW-YORK MIRROR AND LADIES' LITERARY GAZETTE, a periodical which afforded an important medium for the works of the early Knickerbocker school of writers.

He began his architectural activities in London, Bloomsbury, 1834, date of this edition, demonstrating his mastery of Gothic architecture. He was recognized for his early talent for drawing.

HARALD FISCHER VERLAG : \"Nach kleineren Anfängen war das Encyklopädische Wörterbuch die erste großangelegte, von deutschen Medizinern vorgelegte medizinische Enzyklopädie. Ihr Entstehungszeitraum, die Jahre zwischen 1830 und 1850, war in der deutschen Medizin eine Zeit der Krise und des Umbruchs, die Medizin schien in ein chaotisches Nebeneinander von unterschiedlichen Theorien und Praktiken zu münden. - In dieser Zeit des Umbruchs schufen C.W. Hufeland und seine Mitherausgeber ein Wörterbuch, dessen Beiträge von sachlichem Stil und nüchterner, unpolemischer Kritik geprägt waren. Das Wörterbuch bot einen solide recherchierten zeitgenössischen Wissensstand und einen verhältnismäßig neutralen Überblick über die Vielfalt der medizinischen Theorien und Konzepte. Daneben sind insbesondere die reichen LITERATURANGABEN aus heutiger Sicht sehr nützlich.\" INHALT: Band 1 Aachen - Agyrta. Band 2 Ahnung - Antimonium. Band 3 Antipathie - Attractio.

        Première Babylone ... Sémiramis la Grande, traduit d'un manuscrit hiéroglyphique égyptien.

      P., imp. de H. Dupuy, 1834, in 8°, de CXLIII-514 pp. (dont 4ff. chiffrés par des symboles après la p.384), titre orné, figures in t. et une grande figure à pl. page, demi-maroquin bun à coins, t. dorée, rel. moderne. Envoi de l'auteur en grande partie effacé. Qq. rousseurs sinon bel exemplaire. Rarissime ouvrage non mis dans le commerce et tiré à petit nombre. ¶ Caillet n°3067: "Livre mystérieux, précédé d'une grande étude sur le symbolisme notamment sur celui des cathédrales... d'aucuns l'apprécient: curieuse élucubration d'un fou littéraire." - P. Dujols: "Ouvrage maçonnique des plus étranges et des plus mystérieux. L'auteur prétend qu'il est la traduction d'un manuscrit hiéroglyphique d'un prêtre de Memphis, et qui lui aurait été confié par un illustre orientaliste (lisez: initié M:.). Ce manuscrit, voile de la tradition maç:. était intitulé Sémiramis Trismégiste. S'inspirant des anciens Maçons Constructeurs, Desjardins, dans une admirable préface symbolique intitulée la Cathédrale, présent eaux adeptes ce livre fermé pour les profanes." "Ce dialogue du Mystère des Trois Voix, dit l'auteur p.501, prouve et constate combien d'efforts et de sacrifices inouïs auraient été tentés par le jeune Ninyas afin d'échapper aux conséquences terribles de son personnage de Prêtre de la Mort, qu'il aurait revêtu dans Memphis, au pied du Dieu rémunérateur et vengeur. Personnage irrésistible et fatal, mais de la dernière fatalité, selon le code secret des initiations et la consécration de nos saint Mystères qu'il ne m'est pas permis de découvrir ici, ni par la parole, ni par caractères confiés au papyrus! LES INITIES ME COMPRENNENT." Desjardins fut vers 1830, le grand chef des sociétés secrètes, le véritable maître absolu du pouvoir, et, dit Francis Lacombe, le président en expectative de la future république; "Se dressant du haut des cités babyloniennes, continue son biographe, il parlait devant nous la langue des Mages et de Chaldée, perdue depuis quatre mille ans et providentiellement retrouvée par lui au XIX) siècle, pour la stupéfaction du genre humain." L'ouvrage est rempli de reproductions pittoresques d'anciens textes hébreux, coptes, chaldéens, égyptiens, éthiopiens etc... orné d'un titre orné très symbolique et d'une gravure finale figurant l'initié parvenu à la suprême lumière. ¶ Brunet les fous littéraires p. 56: "Cette production plus qu'étrange n'a pas été mise dans le commerce, l'érudition et l'extravagance y débordent..." - Blavier les fous littéraires p.59: "publication... d'un luxe inattendu... vaste drame... composé en partie en caractères hébreux, persans, arabes, chaldéens etc.. Un livre rare mais dont l'appartenance stricte à la classe des productions que nous étudions est discutable."

Ainsi, pour les Etats-Unis, on suit les développements des établissements de "Nazareth" à Dayton (Ohio), fondée en 1849, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Sanduski, Pittsburg, San Antonio (Texas) (depuis 1852), la fondation à Hawaï (Iles Sandwich) en 1883 ; on peut y suivre tous les développements de l'Oeuvre marianiste, dont leurs missions en Chine et au Japon, avec la longue (76 pages) et passionnante circulaire n° 47 du Père Simler (consacré à la "Fondation à Tôkyô" du 19 mai 1888 ; le père Simler y relate tout le détail de son voyage de fondation et de son installation au Japon, avec ses jugements sur la société japonaise et son système éducatif). On trouve d'autres circulaires du plus haut intérêt telle la fondation de la mission à Hawaï (1883, circulaire n° 28 du Père Simler) et l'importante "Notice historique" du même retraçant l'origine des missions les plus anciennes. Entre 1900 et 1945, les circulaires se recentrent plus sur l'organisation générale de la Société de Marie (les développements sur les missions étant plus spécifiquement traités dans la revue "l'Apôtre de Marie"), puis après la guerre, elles évoquent à nouveau plus précisément les développements missionnaires. On lira par exemple avec grand profit la circulaire n°6 du Père Juergens (1948) relative à sa visite au Japon, 2 ans après la fin des hostilités, avec le compte-rendu de sa visite à l'Empereur, une présentation de l'état physique et moral du Japon et le détail des visites à Tokyo (Gyosei Chu Gakko et Akebono Gaku), Nagasaki (Kaisei Chu-Gakko), Urakami (Nagasaki), Osaka (Meisei Chu-Gakko), Fukuoka (Taisei Chu-Gakko), Sapporo (Kosei Chu-Gakko)n Gora (Park Hotel), Jindai Mura (Shudoin), Kioyose Mura (Kiyoto Gakunen), ou encore la circulaire n° 23 de 1953, du Père Juergens, relatant sa visite aux missions d'Amérique : Honolulu, Waikuku, San Francisco, Alameda, Gardena, Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Antonio, Victoria et Sommerset (Texas), Kirkwood, Glencoe, Clayton, Saint Louis, Belleville, Chicago, Milwaukee, Galesville, Dayton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Fairborn, Covington et Hamilton dans l'Ohio, Pittsburgh et Philadelphie (Pennsylvanie), Marcy, Beacon Brooklyn, Mineola et Tockaway Park (New York), Baltimore et Washington, San Juan et Ponce (Puerto Rico), S. Boniface et S. Anselme et Levis au Québec, Lima, Callao, Chaclayo et Chupaca au Pérou, etc., ou encore la circulaire n° 25, de 1963, du Père Hoffer relative à sa visite des missions en Afrique : Côte d'Ivoire, Togo, Nigéria, Congo, etc...

        Spécies Général et Iconographie des Coquilles Vivantes, comprenant la collection du Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de Paris, la collection Lamarck, celle du Prince Masséna et les decouvertes récentes des Voyageurs.

      Paris, Rousseau/ Baillière, (1834-1880). 11 volumes (bound in 13). Royal-8vo. With 902 (5 in coloured copies) fine handcoloured engraved plates. Later speckled calf with 2 red gilt lettered labels. One of the most desirable works on shells. It was published over a period of almost half a century and especially the last 27 parts published by P. Fischer from 1873-1879 are rare. In the monograph on the Turbo by Fischer published in 1873 the text (128 pages) is in a recent reprint as well as plates 37-42. The 11 page text of the genus Phasianella is also in a reprint. Some plates of the genus Turbo have been trimmed with some slight loss of the illustration. A few plates have the upper right corner very slightly chipped./Kiener made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, together the largest and most varied fund 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 1879, when eleven volumes had been completed. All devoted to the illustration of marine gastopods with the exception of the tenth volume, which includes a monograph on the bivalve genus Thracia. The eleventh volume is the work of Paul Fischer. All the illustrations are by celebrated French engravers and artists of the day." (Dance. Hist. of Shell Collecting p. 137). This beautifully illustrated iconography on shells is still a valuable work of reference because of the new species described in it. The work is complete with 902 handcoloured plates as indicated in the last volume, where the publisher 'Ballière' informs the reader that the work consists of 165 parts with a total of 902 plates. Nissen, however, calls for a 20bis plate in the Cypraea section which, indeed, some copies have. Most likely only the early issues have this 'bis' plate, which was probably replaced by a corrected plate 20 in later issues. In the text this 'bis' plate is not mentionned. //Provenance: With the occasional stamp of Richard I. Johnson. //Nissen ZBI, 2183; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)II, 978.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM HENRY CLAY TO HIS ASSOCIATE JAMES BROWN IN 1834 REGARDING THE SALE OF A PLANTATION AND SEVERAL OTHER ITEMS OF PERSONAL NEWS]

      Lexington, Ky, 1834. [1]p., on a bifolium, with integral address leaf. Quarto. Previously folded, with several small separations along fold lines. Area of paper loss on address leaf, not affecting text, torn away by wax seal, of which remnants still present. Tanned. Written in a small, but legible hand. Good plus. An interesting letter by Henry Clay from his Ashland estate in Lexington, Kentucky to a business associate, James Brown, discussing his potential purchase of a nearby plantation. Though Clay and his addressee seem eager to made a deal, the seller is dragging his feet: "I proposed to him to name a price what he would give or take, and urged his superior information as a reason why he should thus fix the price. But he did not accede to that proposal, and he spoke of the expediency of a division of the slaves. I thought his eagerness to close the concern had somewhat abated since his visit to Philad[elphi]a and your constitution of an Agency. He professed however to have no description of the slaves &c. with him here." He goes on to suggest that an agent will need to visit the owner in person in order to accomplish any deal, writing, "I shall endeavor to persuade Mr. Mason Brown to go down and with Mr. Erwin in the final adjustment of it. If he cannot go, he and I will fix upon some other person to be associated with Mr. Erwin, under the power of substitution with which you have invested us, unless you disapprove that course." The rest of the letter discusses smaller pieces of personal news, including the improvement of the health of Clay's wife and the death of a Judge with whom Clay was acquainted. An interesting letter revealing some of the Great Compromiser's business dealings during the later part of his political career.
