        The Rural Muse

      Whittaker and Co, London 1835 - 1st impression of the final volume of poems published during Clare's lifetime and containing approximately half of the poems from The Midsummer Cushion manuscript which was not published in complete form until 1979 - these poems therefore represent Clare's work at a high point of his creative powers. In publisher's original dark green, blind floral designed cloth with original paper label to spine. The covers have been expertly and sensitively rebacked using original spine with missing top 2cms and botton 1cm now replaced and retaining the original endpapers internally which have not been disturbed. Otherwise internally there is one ownership signature and date neatly to ffep with no other inscriptions. Two missing pages, namely 49/50 and 51/52 have been replaced by facsimilies; there is some moderate foxing to the engraved frontispiece showing Clare's cottage, also to its tissueguard and the title page. All in all a very nice copy in very largely original condition of perhaps the scarcest of the early John Clare volumes. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Charged by the French government to study the prison system of the United States, the two officials made a sweeping tour of the west and south after completing their penal studies in the east, visiting Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, Alabama, the Carolinas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

        Original Watercolours of Fox-Hunting Scenes

      - Elephantine oblong folio, 38 by 54.5 cm. The paintings and prints measure 41 by 30 cm. The four paintings are entitled "Drawing the Cover", "Getting Away", "The Full Cry" and "The Death", and each is accompanied by the hand-colored engraving made from the painting. The engravings were made by R. G. Reeve for Thomas McLean and were issued in 1835. The original painting sits on the left, the engraving, on the right, and the latter is protected by a tissue guard attached from above. The paintings have a pale beauty, whereas the coloring of the engravings is more forceful and rich. Perhaps sacrificed ever so slightly, though, is the sharpness of detail in the engraved version. Regardless, a wonderful suite by one of the giants of equestrian and sporting art. The paintings and engravings are framed in a heavy, very substantial card matting that is virtually the same as what might be used if the pictures were framed on a wall. Very light, scattered soiling. Otherwise, fine.

        The State and Position of Western Australia; Commonly called the Swan-River Settlement

      London: Simpkin, Marshall, and Co, 1835. Octavo, 143 pp., contemporary notice of the work tipped in, early owner's name on title-page; an excellent copy in full crushed green morocco by Sangorski. First edition, uncommon. Irwin's book was the first significant published account of the Swan River colony, and is a charming and informative work, devised partly as an advertisement for emigration.Frederick Irwin (1788-1860) saw active service in Spain, Portugal, Canada and Ceylon. In 1828, while holding the rank of captain, he assumed command of a detachment of the 63rd Regiment (himself, a fellow officer, and 66 other ranks) which was ordered to provide military protection to the fledgling Swan River settlement. Arriving on the Sulphur in June 1829, Irwin spent four years in the colony before returning to England for a few years. A keen promoter of the new colony, while in London Irwin helped form the Western Australian Association, and it was during this period that the present work was published.The book includes nine appendices of which two are extracts reprinted from the 'W.A. Journal' 1834-1835 regarding Aboriginal matters, including an extraordinary account of two trackers, "Migo" and "Molly-Dobbin", who found a lost child after a long and frustrating search through 22 miles of dunes and thick scrub.This copy does not have the advertisement leaves sometimes seen (and assumed to be present in slightly later issues). Ferguson, 1973.

        Autograph letter signed "Bellini" to Count Rodolphe Apponyi

      2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated Monday morning. Postmarked [?]January 12, 1835. In black ink. On stationery with "Weynen Superfin" blindstamped to upper portions of leaves. Integral address panel with the recipient's name and the address of the Austrian Embassy in Paris to final page. With fully intact red wax seal. In Italian and French (with translation). Bellini tries to secure the Count a place at the première of his latest opera, upon which he is "always working." He invites the Count's wife, who has a "delicate musical taste," to one of its dress rehearsals. "... I met your cousin at Madame Graham's and I begged him to tell you that I had gone to the Bureau des Italiens to try to grant your wish... therefore, if the day of the first performance falls on a day when the halls are occupied almost entirely by subscribers, you'll get priority... Tell [the Countess] I am sorry I am not yet able to leave my desk, since I'm always working on the opera. I hope she will want to honor me by coming to some dress rehearsal, to give me advice with her delicate musical taste... " Slightly worn and stained; creased at folds and overall; small perforation to upper edge of first leaf; lacking small portion of right edge of second leaf with no loss of text. . The opera to which Bellini refers was undoubtedly I puritani, his last work. Commissioned by the Théâtre Italien in Paris in 1834, I puritani was premièred there on January 24, 1835, just twelve days after the writing of this letter. Bellini died later that year, on September 23. Apponyi was a member of a Hungarian noble family associated with many important musicians of the day.

        The Naturalist's Library

      Edinburgh: Lizars, 1835. Complete set of 40 volumes, small octavo, each volume with portrait frontispiece & engraved and printed title-page; numerous attractive steel-engraved handcoloured plates throughout, a fine set in a superb nineteenth-century half calf binding, banded spines with double crimson and green labels. A beautifully bound and fine set of this popular mid nineteenth-century natural history encyclopaedia, including a rich representation of Australasian species. Each volume also features a frontispiece and introduction devoted to the life of an eminent naturalist, with good biographies for example of Sir Joseph Banks and François Péron, as well as John Ray, Thomas Pennant and Thomas Bewick.One volume is entirely devoted to Australian fauna, and includes 30 plates depicting possums, marsupials, kangaroos, native mice, koalas, platypus and the now extinct Tasmanian Tiger. Descriptions and illustrations of other Australian species are scattered throughout the entire work, for example a volume devoted to dogs includes the 'New Holland Dingo' with a striking coloured plate alongside a fine engraving of the skull of the dingo compared to that of a jackal. In particular, the fourteen volumes of the series devoted to birds are well stocked with Australian species, and are especially good on parrots, with splendid illustrations of cockatoos, galahs and lorikeets.Sir William Jardine was born in 1800 and developed a keen interest in natural history during his childhood on Jardine Hall, a magnificent estate in Dumfriesshire. A gifted anatomist, Jardine travelled widely in search of specimens for his private museum, beginning with a three year investigation into the life cycle of British salmon and trout. Further adventures took him throughout continental Europe and later the Caribbean. Through these travels and his ceaseless correspondence with fellow naturalists across the globe, Jardine's museum became one of the significant British private natural history collections of the era, boasting over 6,000 species of birds alone.The Naturalist's Library was an immensely successful publication, and offered the general public a beautiful and informative encyclopaedia of the natural world at an affordable price. Jardine wrote 15 of the volumes himself, and contributed many of the biographical introductions in the series. The work is renowned for the quality of the steel engravings by William Home Lizars, the brother of Jardine's wife Jean.Complete sets of this work are uncommon; Ferguson, for example, records only scattered volumes from the series (see 2314a, 3622b, 2766b, etc.).

        Colonization, particularly in Southern Australia

      T. & W. Boone, London 1835 - Octavo; a very good copy in the original green morocco-grain half cloth and drab papered boards, the joints neatly restored, printed paper label on the spine. Boone's first Australian publication. First and only edition of Boone's first Australian publication. Between 1835 and 1853 Thomas and William Boone would publish an outstanding series of the classic accounts of Australian travel, including those of Mitchell, Grey, Eyre, Hodgkinson, Stokes, Jukes, Leichhardt, Sturt and Read.With the passing of the South Australian Act in 1834, the colonists petitioned for the appointment of Napier as governor. A hero of the French wars, he wrote this work to set out his views on the proposed colony. Finally, in May 1835, he was informed that the terms he proposed on behalf of the colonists were not acceptable to the Company, so he declined the appointment in 1836 to continue his military career.Although Napier prepared the book from the writings of others, it is, like Samuel Sidney's almost two decades later, of interest as an attempt to present eye-witness reports of the first explorers and earliest settlers to a very wide public. Thus, with works such as Napier's, Ogle's on Western Australia, and Sidney's on the "three colonies", we see the seeds of the clichéd and simplistic perception of Australia as an antipodean Arcadia which did so much to colour the way the world at large and - perhaps regrettably - Australians themselves saw their continent for at least another hundred years.

Original plain wrappers bound in. Very good. First edition. Prichard introduced the term "moral insanity" to define a special type of mental illness, which he defined as "madness consisting in a morbid perversion of the natural feelings, affections, inclinations, temper, habits, moral dispositions and natural impulses without any remarkable disorder or defect in the intellect or knowing and reasoning faculties and particularly without any insane illusion or hallucination" (p. 6). He was the first to focus attention on those mental diseases characterized solely by disturbances of behavior or affect-- what we now call psychopathology. Garrison-Morton 4928. Norman 1747.

        Infantine Library

      Paris: Truchy, 1835. Hardcover. Near Fine. 16mo [11 x 7.2 cm]. 12 numbered volumes, each with 32 pp. Bound in original printed wrappers. Minor chipping and soiling to some wrappers. Volumes 4, 5, 8 and 9 with minor interior waterstaining, minor spotting and staining here and there across the volumes. Overall in an excellent state of preservation. Very rare 12-volume set of English primers - published in 1835-36 in Paris as the Infantine Library - intended for the instruction of young children just beginning read: The collection is here wonderfully preserved in its original printed publisher's wrappers. The series brought together several of the most popular works of early 19th-century children's literature, including selections by the leading female writers Margaret King Moore, Countess of Mount Cashell (1772-1835), Eliza Fenwick (1766-1840), and Anna Letitia Barbauld (1743-1825), as well as selections by John Aikin (1747-1822) and Robert Huish (1777-1850). The series commences with two volumes - one for girls and one for boys - using only one-syllable words ("Kate was a good child on the whole"; "Ben was not a good boy"). The third volume allows for two- and three-syllable words, providing hyphens between syllables to help children break words into sounds ("Miss Graves thought that learning French was a ve-ry trou-ble-some thing"). The remaining nine volumes slowly introduce more sophisticated vocabulary and narrative situations, including the basics of poetry. Footnotes are sometimes used to help children resolve figurative language ("a feathered creature" = "a bird"). A child who had advanced to volume 7 would be expected to laugh at Latin language-learning jokes ("Well - and is hic, haec, hoc, more difficult to remember than these?"). By the end of the final volume, the young reader has been prepared for encounters with the 'exotic other,' ever a concern in the growing Empire ("Gipsies," "The Blind Man and his Eighty Camels"). Released by "Truchy's French and English Library," a Parisian firm active in English publishing in the first decades of the nineteenth century, each volume carries a cover price of 50 centimes and lists other available titles on the back wrapper (the works of Maria Edgeworth seem to have been popular). While we have been unable to trace a few texts included in the series (see below), most selections are reprintings of well-known children's literature of the period, and that such a work should have been published in Paris is an interesting indication of the level of piracy in the era before the Anglo-French Copyright Treaty (1851) and the International Copyright Act (1852) established a legal framework for reprinting English texts across the Channel. OCLC locates this rare series only at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. * BnF notice no. FRBNF42003315; Francis Marcoin, Librarie de jeunesse et literature industrielle au XIXe siècle, p. 178.
