Binding slightly worn and rubbed; corners bumped; spine with minor defects to head and tail. Slightly worn, soiled, browned, and foxed; one leaf torn at blank margin. A French harpist and composer, Labarre studied the harp with Bochsa, Cousineau and Nadermann and composition with Boieldieu. "The musical style of his operas derives from the works of Boieldieu and Adam, and anticipates those of Offenbach; although they never achieved the popularity of Meyerbeer or Halévy, several of his works, such as Jovita, remained in the repertory throughout the 1850s. He was a conductor at the Opéra-Comique from 1847 to 1849, and later was appointed director of the imperial chapel. He succeeded Antoine Prumier as professor of harp at the Paris Conservatoire (1867-70), where Léon Gatayes and Félix Godefroid were among his pupils. During the last years of his life he was music critic for Paris illustré. He was admitted to the Légion d'Honneur in 1862." Frédéric Robert and Fiona Clampin in Grove Music Online.Gomis, a Spanish composer, knew Manuel García and was befriended by Rossini. "Between 1831 and 1836 Gomis wrote the music for four operas performed at the Opéra-Comique: Le diable à Seville, about General Riego's 1820 army rebellion; Le revenant, based on 'Wandering Willie's Tale' in Scott's Redgauntlet, and much praised for the 'Chanson du sabbat'; Le portefaix, his most successful opera; and Rock le barbu, acclaimed for the purity of its melodies." John Dowling in Grove Music Online.He was made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur, and Berlioz wrote his obituary. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Character, object, and effects of Trades' Unions; with some remarks on the law concerning them.

      London: James Ridgway and Sons 1834 - 8vo., (2) + 140pp., recently well bound in cloth lettered in gilt. A very good copy. First, and only, edition. In the view of Sidney and Beatrice Webb this was an 'able' pamphlet setting forth the constitution and proceedings of the new unions but criticizing 'their pretensions in a manner which has not since been surpassed. . (It) remains, perhaps, the best statement of the case against Trade Unionism' [The History of Trade Unionism>, 1894, p.126]. Tufnell's bitter attack on the unions, his accounts of proceedings at secret union meetings and his demand for new and draconian legislation, is all encapsulated in his final paragraph: 'Part of London is now (March 7th) in darkness from a strike amongst the workmen at the gas establishments. Scarcely a town in England has escaped the infliction of a turn-out, and were (the writer) to state that the working classes, have taxed themselves to the amount of one million during the past year, in these futile attempts to raise wages, the calculation would probably be below the truth'. The author was one of the factory commissioners. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An account of the transactions of His Majesty's Mission to the Court of Persia, in the Years 1807-11 [.] To which is appended, a brief history of the Wahauby.

      London, James Bohn, 1834. - 8vo. 2 vols. VIII, 472, XXXIV. (4), V, (6)-238 pp. With 2 lithogr. frontispieces, 9 lithogr. plates on Chine appliqué and 1 folding lithogr. map of Central Arabia and Egypt. Contemp. tan calf bindings, spines renewed in period style. First edition. The second volume - and the map - are devoted entirely to the so-called "Nedjed Country". - "The first political and commercial treaty between Great Britain and Persia was concluded in 1801, when the East India Company sent John Malcolm to the Court of Fath Ali Shah. Persia undertook to attack the Afghans if they were to move against India, while the British undertook to come to the defence of Persia if they were attacked by either the Afghans or the French. When the Russians intensified their attacks on the Caucasian Provinces in 1803 annexing large territories, Fath Ali Shah appealed to the British for help, but was refused on the grounds that Russia was not included in the Treaty. The Persians thus turned to the French and concluded the Treaty of Finkenstein in 1807. It was against this background that Harford Jones, who was the chief resident at Basra for the East India Company, was sent to Persia by the Foreign Office in 1809 [.] The French who had now entered into a treaty with Russia (the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807) had lost interest in Persia and removed their political and military missions. Thus the British were able to conclude another treaty with Persia (the Treaty of Friendship and Alliance, also called the Treaty of Tehran) which bound Britain to assist Persia in case any European nation invaded her (even if Britain had a treaty with that nation). This treaty was not honoured by the British after the first Persian-Russian War" (Ghani). Volume 2 is devoted exclusively to the Wahhabis, tracing their history from the mid-eighteenth century to their defeat by Egyptian Ottoman forces at the site of the Wahhabi capital, Dariyah (Dereyah), in 1818. - Rare: the only other copy in a contemporary binding on the market within the last 30 years was the Burrell copy (wanting half titles and rebacked; Sotheby's, Oct 14, 1999, lot 127, £8,000). Only slightly browned and foxed (occasionally affecting plates), but altogether fresh, in an appealing full calf binding. Macro, Bibliography of the Arabian Peninsula, 606. BM IV:457 (941). Wilson 33. Cf. Ghani 53f. (reprint). Diba 79.

        Journey to the north of India, overland from England, through Russia, Persia, and Affghaunistaun.

      London Bentley 1834 - First edition. 2 volumes, 8vo., xii, 418; viii, 440pp., 2 etched frontispieces, folding lithographed map, modern half calf gilt, red morocco labels, an excellent set. A scarce title by a key figure in the history of British and Russian relations in nineteenth century Central Asia. It was Conolly who coined the phrase "The Great Game" and his tragic execution along with Colonel Charles Stoddart is memorably recounted on the opening page of Peter Hopkirk's book of the same name. "Being in England on sick leave in 1829, Conolly obtained leave to return to India through central Asia. He left London on 10 August 1829, travelled through France and Germany to Hamburg, then continued by sea to St Petersburg, where he stayed a month, and then travelled via Tiflis and Tehran to Asterabad. There he disguised himself as an Asian merchant, with a stock of furs and shawls, hoping to reach Khiva. He left Asterabad for the Turkoman steppes on 26 April 1830, but when the little caravan to which he attached himself was about halfway between Krasnovodsk and Kizil Arvat he was seized by nomads and robbed. The Turkomans were undecided whether to kill him or sell him into slavery. Tribal jealousies in the end secured his release, and he returned to Asterabad on 22 May 1830, from where he travelled to India by way of Mashhad, Herat, and Kandahar, visiting Sind, and finally crossing the Indian frontier in January 1831. He published a lively narrative of the journey—reflecting his bright, hopeful temperament—A Journey to Northern India (1834)" (ODNB). Yakushi (1994), C331. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        PAXTON'S MAGAZINE OF BOTANY AND REGISTER OF FLOWERING PLANTS Volumes 1 - 4 [I - IV]

      London: Orr and Smith, 1834. 1834-1838; vols. 1- 4 (of eventually 16). Complete with 171 hand-coloured engraved plates of which 23 are larger folding plates, after Frederick William Smith and Samuel Holden (some heightened with gum arabic), tissue guards, one plate of garden design. Bound in contemporary full black gilt-decorated, straight grained morocco; bindings good and strong with all boards firmly attached but with some chipping and loss and rubbing to the leather spines. Contents clean and tight, original marbled end papers, plates generally bright, a few with light spotting or slightly marked, a few folding plates a little worn/creased at leading edge. A very good run of the first four volumes. Very reasonably priced with the plates working out at less that £6.50 each. [Nissen BBI 2351; Great Flower Books, p.85; Stafleu TL2 7544] The Magazine of Botany was illustrated with fine botanical plates, of which Paxton notes in his introduction to volume 10 "the Embellishments of this work has been brought as near perfection as it is possible to attain. It is, indeed, suggested by some of our friends, that they are too beautiful; and that the plants they represent are not ordinarily so handsome as they are here depicted. Such a view, however, is a mistaken one: it arises from a rule which we adopt in the choice of subjects for our drawings, and which is, to have them prepared, whenever practicable, from specimens that are very favourably grown... on account of the stimulus it gives to those who see our plates, to grow their specimens to the like excellence". From 1826 to 1858 Paxton was chief gardener at the Duke of Devon's Chatsworth Estate, establishing it as "the most famous garden in England... [and in the Magazine] he described many of his plants and innovations at Chatsworth" (ODNB). Provenance: . First Edition. Full Leather. Very Good. Small 4to (17 x 23.5cm).

McHenry 520, citing the 4° version. D.N.B. Rare. Neither 4to. nor folio version in Cushing, Waller or Reynolds. JOSEPH SWAN (1791-1874)," anatomist and surgeon to Lincoln County Hospital for many years, was a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and sat on its council for nearly forty years. His principal work was Treatise on diseases and injuries of the nerves (London, 1830) in which he covered injury, inflammation, and tumors of the nerves and discussed the mechanisms of pain and healing of damaged nerves. In 1820 the Royal College of Surgeons instituted a Collegiate Triennial Prize for the best essay in anatomy or physiology. The first two awards were made to Swan for his research on the nervous system, which is the subject of the present work. The three main sections include the autonomic nervous system, the cranial nerves, and the spinal nerves. Each of the twenty-five magnificently engraved plates are accompanied by a duplicate in outline and a leaf of descriptive letterpress." Heirs of Hippocrates [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        L'Aspirant de Marine Opéra Comique en deux Actes Paroles de MMrs. Rochefort & Decomberousse... avec Accompt. de Piano par V. Rifaut. [Piano-vocal score]

      Paris: J. Delahante, 1834. A French harpist and composer, Labarre studied the harp with Bochsa, Cousineau and Nadermann and composition with Boieldieu. "The musical style of his operas derives from the works of Boieldieu and Adam, and anticipates those of Offenbach; although they never achieved the popularity of Meyerbeer or Halévy, several of his works, such as Jovita, remained in the repertory throughout the 1850s... He was a conductor at the Opéra-Comique from 1847 to 1849, and later was appointed director of the imperial chapel. He succeeded Antoine Prumier as professor of harp at the Paris Conservatoire (1867-70), where Léon Gatayes and Félix Godefroid were among his pupils. During the last years of his life he was music critic for Paris illustré. He was admitted to the Légion d'Honneur in 1862." Frédéric Robert and Fiona Clampin in Grove Music Online. Gomis, a Spanish composer, knew Manuel García and was befriended by Rossini. "Between 1831 and 1836 Gomis wrote the music for four operas performed at the Opéra-Comique: Le diable à Seville, about General Riego's 1820 army rebellion; Le revenant, based on 'Wandering Willie's Tale' in Scott's Redgauntlet, and much praised for the 'Chanson du sabbat'; Le portefaix, his most successful opera; and Rock le barbu, acclaimed for the purity of its melodies." John Dowling in Grove Music Online. He was made a Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur, and Berlioz wrote his obituary.. Folio.

        Travels into Bokhara; being the account of a journey from India to Cabool, Tartary, and Persia; also, narrative of a voyage on the Indus, from the sea to Lahore, with presents from the king of Great Britain; performed under the orders of the Supreme Government of India, in the years 1831, 1832, and 1833 .

      London John Murray 1834 - First edition. 3 volumes, 8vo., 8 lithographed plates (one double page, two of coins), light foxing to plates, contemporary half calf gilt, marbled sides, black morocco lettering and numbering pieces, lightly rubbed, light wear to extremities, "Burnes was of the India's Company Service and after a successful mission to the Court of Lahore, during which he mapped the course of the Indus, he proposed to go further and cross Central Asia from the Indus to the Caspian. Burnes did not travel as an accredited agent of the government as it was considered too risky, but he did travel with papers stating that he was an officer returning home on leave. The book is thus an account of a famous journey written by an early spy. He visited Kabul where he met Joseph Wolff who had been travelling in the region disguised as a Moslem to preach Christianity to the Jews. Thence he proceeded via Balkh to Bokhara, and on to the Oxus, Merv and Khorasan. Volume III describes in some detail the geography of each of the regions he passed through." (Ghani). Ghani p60.

        Edward Livingston

      April 9, 1834. Autograph letter signed <I>"Edwd Livington"</I>, dated Paris 9 Apl 1834 and reads in full, <I>"Your letter my dear Gilpin of the 1st of January reached me ten days ago only. How happens it to have been so long on the way? The delay has been subjected you to many interjectional charges of negligence during my moments of impatience to hear from you but the perusal of the newspapers always suggested for you a good excuse, in the vexations which the virulent attacks upon you for having faithfully done your duty must have ceased, and I never failed to be ashamed of having so often repeated why does Gilpin write to us! We have nothing here from home later than the first of March at which time affairs seemed to assume a more favorable aspect among the dealers in credit; but extracts from the English papers which appears to have had later information give a more unpleasant account. The representation of our commercial distress, exaggerated I hope, has had an unfavorable effect on our affairs here and I think may have been one of the causes which produced the vote of the Chamber of Deputies rejecting the appropriations for our treaty. The belief is general that we shall take it very quietly. If we do we had better remain diplomary, recall all our own ministers who gave notice to our merchants that we will neither protect their commerce nor enforce the performance of treaties. Our countrymen here however expect better things and look to restrictions which will soon bring these people to a server of their true interest. You will doubtless see in a message from the President the circumstances attending this unexpected breach of faith. I need not therefore detail them, and I could not if I would, for I am now, and have been for sometime past suffering under a fever and ague produced by the climate of "La Belle France." I have now a double chance of seeing you soon, the rejection of my appointment by the senate which would not much surprise me, and my recall in consequence of events here. I am glad to hear that Dallas & my excellent friend his mother sometimes thing of me, for I began to fear before I received your letter that you had all forgotten me. I have received a letter from Vance which I beg you to tell him I will soon answer. I wrote to Barclay not long since but have not received the letter you say he had written. I am sorry to hear that the health of my friend Brown is not perfectly reestablished; he has always found that a visit to Louisiana was of service to him & I am glad to hear that he thinks of making one soon. I should have been delighted even at the slight chance your letter intimates of a visit from you if I did not consider that of my return before you can arrive a more probable one. Longacre has not sent the numbers of the National Gallery you speak of nor did the ones you announce accompany your letter so that I cannot tell how I look either in letterpress or engraving. If you want me to "prate of my whereabouts" you must wait until we meet. I can only now tell you what you will hear confirmed by all our countrymen who have visited or will visit Paris during my residence here that that I am the most inhospitable ministers we have ever had not having given a dinner to a single individual & and not intending to give one, for the simple reason that a decent house, a job, carriage, servants, and fuel are indispensable; and that these four items being paid for, I have only from 1000 to 1500 dollars and my slender private income to provide for the other necessities of life. My outfit and money having been expended in the purpose for which it was intended the thousand nameless expenses attending a new establishment. Your friend Mr. Nicklin left your letters only this day that he asked for his passport so that I had not an opportunity to see him. France is in a disturbed situation, but their government will crush all opposition; for which it has abundant means, a well disciplined army between 3 & 400,000 men. The funds . . . to attack them and the legislative . . . to the most arbitrary measures; add to which the . . . folly of the republican party in avowing the ultra Robispurian doctrines of the revolution and improving upon them by the equally . . . avowal of an ultimate design to seize on the property of the rich. You will see by the papers that a . . . has broken out at Lyons. It began on Wednesday & continues while I am writing but before my letter is sealed it will be suppressed with prodigous slaughter, there will be other insurrections and they will share the same fate. Whether I am recalled or not write to me . . . I shall in all . . .pass a few weeks in London. Tell all my friends how much I deserve to be remembered by them and do not forget to thank your good father for his kind attention to my troublesome commission. I hope you have long since got rid of all this trouble you have had about my book as you have had enough in all conscience of my writing I will put an end to this epistle by informing you that we all think and talk of friends at home with renewed affection and that whatever may be the length of our stay we shall see our native land with new found satisfaction that we can't find in any other. Most Sincerely my Dear Gilpin Your friend . . . Edw. Livingston."</I> From 1833 to 1835 Livingston was minister plenipotentiary to France, charged with procuring the fulfillment by the French government of the indemnity treaty negotiated by W. C. Rives in 1831, by which France had bound herself to pay an indemnity of twenty-five millions of francs for French spoliations of American shipping chiefly under the Berlin and Milan decrees, and the United States in turn agreed to pay to France 1,500,000 francs in satisfaction of French claims. Livingston's negotiations were conducted with excellent judgment, but the French Chamber of Deputies refused to make an appropriation to pay the first installment due under the treaty in 1833, relations between the two governments became strained, and Livingston was finally instructed to close the legation and return to America.

A Presentation copy INSCRIBED by the author on the front blank: "To/William Wordsworth Esq./with the author's/compliments." In addition this copy is SIGNED by the recipient on the title page: "W Wordsworth/Rydal Mount." In this volume, and in a second that was issued the following year, Ord attempted a history of England in verse. His efforts were not well received. One reviewer in THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE claimed "that the author has formed his manner and style too much on that of Lord Byron in exaggeration, impetuosity, and a perpetual straining for effect." A scarce book from Wordsworth's library. Old bookseller description laid in. Housed in a new calf-backed slipcase with cloth chemise. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

The definitive contemporary account of the difference engine impressive for its accuracy and detail, and for the manner in which the most significant features and innovations are highlighted . it is evident that much of Lardner's material has been obtained at first hand from Babbage (Bromley, Introduction to the 1982 edition of Babbage's Works). The only portion of Babbage's difference engine ever to be constructed was finished in 1832 by Babbage's mechanic Joseph Clement. The present article was the primary source of information for the Swedish engineer Georg Scheutz who eventually built his own calculating machine about twenty years later.
