Bruxelles: Louis Hauman et cie, 1835. Title comprising 15 volumes written by many important 19th century French writers to help the French editor Ladvocat not to run into bankrupcy. The writers attributed to this series with unpublished contributions were a.o. Chateaubriand, Delavigne, Halévy, Victor Hugo, Jacob, Jules Janin, De Lamartine, La Rochefoucauld, Nodier, Regnier, Eugène Sue, etc., edited at the same time by Ladvocat at Paris. This is a "Belgian Conterfeit", but of a smaller size, hard to find. With 2 illustrations: plan of a roulette table (vol. 10) and plan of a reading-room (vol. 9). Hardcover half calf with corners. Marbled boards and edges. Design of the marbled decoration varies due to the fact that the books were printed over five years and by different printers (1831/1835). Spine with gilt name and nº.

Public Lands]
[Harrisburg PA? Pottsville?, 1835. Folio broadside, 16-3/4" x 20." Printed in three columns, about eight inches at the bottom are left blank. Addressed, with postal cancel [Pottsville PA], "To his Excellency the Governor of Rhode Island, Providence." Folded for mailing. Several contemporary ink corrections. Several chips at blank margins. Very Good. We suggest 1835 as the date of publication: the Memorialists issued the broadside from "a deep and active sympathy with their fellow-citizens, on the occasion of the sudden destruction of a vast amount of property, by the recent conflagration in New York." The 1835 fire qualifies as one of the great disasters in 19th century America. The only date referenced in the broadside's text is a Schuylkill County 1834 resolution pertaining to the proposal. The postmark, and the text reference to that resolution, suggest Pennsylvania as the place of publication. The Memorialists urge Congress to create a $200,000,000 fund of five per cent stock, to be apportioned among the States. "And that the receipts from the sales of the National Lands, be pledged for the gradual redemption of the same." The proposition would enlarge the funds available for relieving public disasters, like the New York Fire, and would maintain the Nation as a "band of brotherhood, binding the Union together by mutual and common rights." Already the growing dispute over Slavery and South Carolina's recent Nullification efforts were causing concern that those bonds were loosening. Not in Sabin, American Imprints.

Garlichs, Mr. and Mrs. Hermann and Adelheid
America: New Orleans, St. Louis, 1835. The original joint manuscript travel diary, from 1835 to1840, of Mr. and Mrs. Hermann and Adelheid Garlichs, who settled in America and became founders of the Evangelical congregations. 8vo. 50 pages in manuscript. In addition, inversely there are 18 pages in manuscript by the same two writers, the first entry with a date as early as 1796 and possibly made by Adelheid's mother. The center of the volume contains 6 pages of recipes written by a family member in 1873, the year of Adelheid's death. All text is in German. Black paper boards, with floral cameo surrounding Adelheid's initials A.v.B. and the year 1835 tooled in gilt to front. With the stamp of the Steinlacke von Borries family library to front pastedown. Volume measures approximately 20 x 17,5 x 1 cm. Some wear to boards, otherwise in very good condition, an important primary source account of emigration to Missouri.

He founded the first Protestant congregations west of the Mississippi and was the first president of the "German Evangelical Church Association of the West" in the USA. He was married to Adelheid von Borries. The couple's life became the subject of emigration research. In Anglo-Saxon literature, his name is sometimes seen as to Herman Garlichs, or Garlich. He grew up in Bremen in a wealthy Protestant family home, his father being a merchant. After completing his doctorate in philosophy, he was employed as an educator on the Steinlake estate of the district adminis … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ikeda Toritei and Takehara Yoshibei
1835. Woodcut Map published by Bunsodo, the firm of Takehara Yoshibei, Kyoto, circa 1835. Rare colored woodcut by Ikeda Toritei (Ikeda Tori; 1788-1857) and Nakamura Yurakusai, made in the Tempo era, with 2 cartouches, for title and legend. Map measures approximately 105 x 72.5 cm, printed onto four leafs assembled, folding, and mounted to two decorative colored cardstock boards measuring approximately 21,5 x 15 cm. Erroneously titled "Osakka" in ink on label mounted to front board. Some age-toning, occasional signs of burrowing in upper margin, wear at folds, otherwise in very good condition, a beautiful and early colour map of Kyoto. This map, by Ikeda Toritei and Takehara Yoshibei, is a stellar depiction of Kyoto's city streets, palaces, temples, shrines, sights of interest, and surrounding villages, some ninety years ago. Beautifully illustrated, vividly coloured, and highly detailed, this historic plan of Kyoto and the many cherished ancient landmarks all around it, is also an important and scarce work. The editor Ikeda Tooritei (1788-1857) was a Kyoto author who also wrote guide books to Kyoto. He was also a celebrated and accomplished calligrapher. [See Force 3, 632 note; Guys 1005 u. Yamashita 131 (other editions), Kraft.] Erroneously labeled "Osakka" in ink on the title plate. Even at this time, the only cities in Japan which were oriented neatly with streets going east to west, and north to south, were Nara and Kyoto, based on the Chinese model classical model of Xianthe ancient capital of China..

Walton, Augustus Q.
Athens, Tn: George White, 1835. Good plus.. 75pp. Dbd. Title page chipped at lower corner; initial three leaves separating at lower gutter. Some dampstaining to initial leaves; light tanning and foxing throughout. A scarce, rural Tennessee imprint that chronicles the criminal exploits of John Andrews Murrell; likely the second edition, issued in the same year as the first printed in Lexington, Kentucky. Murrell was a white bandit from Tennessee who led a network of hundreds of fellow criminals described as his "Mystic Clan" in operations along the Mississippi River. He was infamous for stealing enslaved people from one plantation in order to sell them to another owner. His biggest plan was to lead a national slave uprising on Christmas night, 1834, and then set himself up as leader, but he was arrested before the plan could amount to much. The present work was compiled by the author from the papers and accounts of Virgil Stewart, a one-time compatriot of Murrell. "It must be acknowledged that John A. Murell has never been surpassed in cold blooded murders, by any whose names have been recorded on the pages of history, and other villainous feats have never been surpassed by any who have preceded him. He may justly claim the honor of reducing villainy to an organized system, and he may as justly claim the most important station among adepts in crime and iniquity of the blackest kind." A quite popular account that went through several editions during the antebellum period, but the present one is among the earliest and most obscure, with only a dozen copies located by … [Click Below for Full Description]

STEVENS, Colonel Linus W.
[New York], 1835. Single page letter. Measuring 7.5" x 10.5". Creased from mailing with some spotting else near fine. A letter written as a short note of gratitude Signed by the inmates at Bellevue Alms House to the superintendent, Colonel Linus W. Stevens, upon his retirement from the position. The letter reads: "Col. Stevens Sir, as you are soon to leave the superintendence of the Alms House - permit us the unfortunate inmates of the Alms House to express all that we can give - Our warmest and heartfelt gratitude for the unremitting exertions which you have at all times made for the comfort of the unfortunate - and for your universally urbane and gentlemanly conduct as an officer and a man. We wish you and your family happiness. Respectfully yours." The bottom two thirds of the letter include the signatures of the "inmates" of the institution and is dated May 29, 1835 along the side of the letter. This almshouse is most likely the predecessor of New York's Bellevue Hospital. The original Alms House was thought to have been an improvement over the earlier primitive "barber surgeon" practices in place before the institute. Eventually the Alms House was moved to a former mansion, Belle Vue, and provided, at the time, state of the art medical care including early uses of ambulance. By 1931 the hospital was overshadowed by the reputation of the psychiatric wing of Bellevue. Colonel Linus W. Stevens was a member of the New York National Guard and served on the Alms House board until 1836. He died at the age of 70 in 1848. An interesting letter representing early medical care in … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOTELER, Thomas.
London: Richard Bentley, 1835. 2 volumes, octavo (219 x 136 mm). Late 19th-century red half calf, decorative gilt spines, pinkish linen cloth sides, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. From the library of British Arabist and colonial agent Col. S. B. Miles (1838-1914), with printed bookplate noting his widow's bequest of his collection to Bath Public Library in 1920, with associated manuscript shelf-marks and blind-stamps as usual. Spines sunned and with a few dark blemishes, touch of soiling to front cover of volume II, embossed library stamps to plates, scattered light foxing. A very good, tall copy. Lithograph frontispieces and 2 plates by C. Hamberger or T. M. Baynes after Boteler. First edition, commercially rather uncommon. Sir Richard Burton, in a footnote in his Two Trips to Gorilla Land and the Cataracts of the Congo (1876) described the journeys of the Leven and Barracouta as "this great surveying undertaking". "Following the re-establishment of British sovereignty in South Africa at the conclusion of the Napoleonic Wars, and with trade possibilities emerging along the east coast of Africa, the British Admiralty decided to undertake a major survey of the African coastline. An expedition was fitted out at Woolwich in 1821, led by William Fitzwilliam Owen on board Leven, a ship-sloop of 26 guns, assisted by Commander William Cutfield on the 10 gun brig Barracouta. The expedition progressed to southern Africa and in late 1823, while the Barracouta was surveying part of the African coast north of Mozambique, Owen sailed to Bombay in Leven to obtain provisions and to se … [Click Below for Full Description]

ADAMS, Charles Francis] A Whig of the Old School
Russell, Odiorne, and Company, Boston, 1835. First edition. Octavo. 52pp. Removed from a nonce volume, a little trimmed slightly affecting the inscription, some offsetting on the title page, else very good. Inscribed: "Josiah Quincy Jr. E[sq.] with the respects of the author." Name of Charles F. Adams written on the title page in a non-authorial hand (possibly Quincy's). Quincy, a member of the Whig Party, was the second of three Josiah Quincys to serve as Mayor of Boston; Charles Francis Adams, Sr., the son of John Quincy Adams, was a lawyer (and a Whig, and then later a member of the Free Soil Party, and finally a Republican) who studied law with Daniel Webster, served in the House of Representatives, but resigned to become Lincoln's Ambassador to Great Britain from 1861 to 1868, where he, along with his son Henry Adams, who acted as his secretary, was instrumental in maintaining British neutrality and preventing British diplomatic recognition of the Confederacy during the American Civil War.

1835. A collection of letters and documents relating to the conviction and sentencing of John Russell to New South Wales (Australia) for a petty crime. Russell, the son of a bricklayer from Lambeth, fell into bad company and was sentenced to life for the theft of "a fruit pie and 2 dishes," which he thought was part of a practical joke involving some new acquaintances. Included are two Autographed Letters Signed from Russell to his family while held aboard the convict hulk *Leviathan* awaiting transport, a handwritten petition to the British Secretary of the State for the Home Department pleading for leniency, and an Enquiry for a Convict letter notifying the family of Russell's conviction and transportation on the convict ship *Recovery*. The documents are worn with soiling and tears at the folds but all are still clearly legible and complete, good. A sad archive, yet interesting source material that provides insight into the harsh treatment of criminals by the early 19th Century British legal system as reflected in works such as Charles Dicken's *Great Expectations*, in which detention on and escape from convict hulks played a major part. Further details available upon request.

"This version contains both the original texts, augmented by the additional writings of the biographer and his subject, and the very valuable new and related material which Croker introduced [in his 1831 edition]" (Pottle). "Boswell's Life of Johnson remains the most famous biography in any language, one of Western literature's most germinal achievements: unprecedented in its time in its depth of research and its extensive use of private correspondence and recorded conversation, it sought to dramatize its subject in his authorial greatness and formidable social presence, and at the same time treat him with a profound sympathy and inhabit his inner life. Boswell both elevated the life of the writer to epic stature, and attended to the minute details of life as lived to provide a steady disclosure of character through their long gradual accretion" (ODNB).

Walton, Augustus Q.
Athens, Tn: George White, 1835. Good plus.. 75pp. Dbd. Title page chipped at lower corner; initial three leaves separating at lower gutter. Some dampstaining to initial leaves; light tanning and foxing throughout. A scarce, rural Tennessee imprint that chronicles the criminal exploits of John Andrews Murrell; likely the second edition, issued in the same year as the first printed in Lexington, Kentucky. Murrell was a white bandit from Tennessee who led a network of hundreds of fellow criminals described as his "Mystic Clan" in operations along the Mississippi River. He was infamous for stealing enslaved people from one plantation in order to sell them to another owner. His biggest plan was to lead a national slave uprising on Christmas night, 1834, and then set himself up as leader, but he was arrested before the plan could amount to much. The present work was compiled by the author from the papers and accounts of Virgil Stewart, a one-time compatriot of Murrell. "It must be acknowledged that John A. Murell has never been surpassed in cold blooded murders, by any whose names have been recorded on the pages of history, and other villainous feats have never been surpassed by any who have preceded him. He may justly claim the honor of reducing villainy to an organized system, and he may as justly claim the most important station among adepts in crime and iniquity of the blackest kind."A quite popular account that went through several editions during the antebellum period, but the present one is among the earliest and most obscure, with only a dozen copies located by OCLC … [Click Below for Full Description]

Green paper wrappers. 62 pp. Extremely rare first edition of an Italian work on mushroom poisoning by Ferdinando Coletti (1819-1881), an Italian physician who studied in Padua and made important contributions to medical knowledge, including toxicology. In the present monograph he goes beyond the edibility and toxicity of mushrooms, surveying the incidence, the reasons why these mushrooms are toxic to humans and also proposing measures to prevent mushroom poisoning. These include better education, control of sale and also more medical research to help prevent further poisonings and improve treatment. This makes it not only an academic report on mushroom poisoning, but also a physicians call to take action to prevent people from eating these toxins.The paper wrappers lack their spine and back wrapper, and are slightly frayed at the corners, some marginal stains throughout (not affecting text), otherwise in good condition.

He travelled through the Pacific, mainly along the East and West coasts of South America, the Sandwich Islands and China. Although the voyage was undertaken for commercial reasons, the detailed and close observations are of great importance, perhaps more so as special attention is given to economical-political points of view, for instance where and to what extent political and naval support is wanted for commerce. The author also describes all the red tape and paperwork to be done before business can start. The third volume deals mainly with the Sandwich Islands, Canton, Macao and the Philippines.

With 3 wood engraved frontispieces and ca. 200 wood engravings in text (many full-page). Contemporary boards. VIII, 210; X, 187; VIII, 152 pp. Very rare first and only edition of (the Dutch translation?) of a richly illustrated zoological children's book. The book is divided into three parts: mammals, birds and fishes, making a broad selection of animals from apes to whales, from vultures to pelicans and from perches to rays. The latter parts not only describes the fishes, but also discusses fishery. Huiskamp notes it's translated from the English by W.J. Olivier, but no original is known and his information is not found elsewhere. W.J. Olivier has done several other very free translations, so the present could be modelled after Bewick, with new engravings. The few other copies located are all listed under their part titles, which seem to suggest they don't include the general title-page.With the 19th-century owner's inscription and embossed library stamp of Daniël Boissevain. Some occasional spots and faint foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Slightly rubbed along the spine, one hinges partly cracked, and the title-label worn; the binding otherwise good. Huiskamp O13-O15 (this copy?); NCC (3 copies of the separate volumes); Saakes X, p. 463.
