        The Millennium, a Poem, to which is added Hymns and Songs on Various Subjects, New and Interesting, adapted to the Dispensation of the Fulness of Times

      Boston: Printed for Elder Parley Pratt, 1835. First edition. 52pp. Sextodecimo [14.5 cm] Wrappers missing (remnants at backstrip). Front flyleaf present. Name in ink (Anthony Ivins?) on the front free endsheet, final page, and at the head of page 27. Minor dampstaning to foreedge and a few dog eared leaves. This is the first book of Mormon poetry that Pratt wrote while traveling the eastern United States as a missionary in 1835. This work predates the Emma Smith hymnal by months, and it could be argued that this is the first LDS Hymnal (eight of the eleven songs would become hymns). According to Crawley: "Parley's book of poems, produced merely for his own pleasure, demonstrates that, by the summer of 1835, writing had become an important part of his life. It consists of a table on contents (pp. [3]-4); a preface which is signed "The Author's Friend," followed by a short note by Parley (pp. [5]-7); "The Millennium," a narrative poem in six chapters which identifies the major gospel events from the dispersion of Israel to the millennial reign of Jesus Christ (pp.[9]-30); and eleven songs (pp.[31]-52). It was originally bound in plain tan stiff paper, without a title on the backstrip or front cover. Each piece, except the preface is reprinted in the Millennium and Other Poems. Parts of the Millennium are included in Voice of Warning, pp. 121, 159, 168-171, 192. Eight of the eleven songs are in the 1840 hymnal." Rare. We are able to locate five institutional holdings (Yale, Kansas City Public Library, LOC, LDS Church History, BYU). Flake/Draper 6608. Crawley 21. Chism 2

        Journal of a Tour through some of the vineyards of Spain & France

      New York: Charles S. Francis, 1835. The book has heavy foxing, particularly to title-page and preliminaries, the edges of the paper with some brittleness (the condition of the paper is not unusual for an American-printed book of this date), bound in modern brown library buckram.. Octavo, 166 pp., 2 pp. terminal advertisement for the New York printer; bookplate of Australian wine-maker Max Lake, bound in recent brown cloth. Printed in New York for the fledgling wine-making industry in America. The London edition of this important book is seemingly the rarest of any of the three revolutionary works Busby wrote on wine, but this American edition is almost unknown; Hordern House have only handled one other copy, while the only copy of the book recorded in an Australian collection, in the National Library, was acquired some time after Ferguson completed his monumental biography and indeed apparently after the publication of the Addenda, as it is not listed in either work (but has since been given the Ferguson no. 1894d).Scotsman James Busby (1801-1871) was probably the most important single figure in the early history of the Australian wine industry. Busby's three books on viticulture had an enormous effect on the early wine industry. He had published Treatise on the Culture of the Vine in 1825; it was largely a compilation from European writers, addressed to 'the attention of the higher classes', but it prompted Governor Brisbane to encourage him in practical experimentation. A second work, his 1830 Manual of Plain Directions, was for decades the only really helpful book on the actual method of making wine, and copies of it are commensurably rarer than the preceding book, in our experience, no doubt because it was so much used and consulted.His third book described Busby's four-month tour of Europe, during which he collected four hundred and thirty-seven cuttings from Montpellier Botanical Gardens and one hundred and thirty-three from the Luxembourg Gardens. By January 1833 the vines - which Busby donated to the government - had arrived by convict ship the Camden and were flourishing in the Sydney Botanic Gardens. But when he came back to Sydney from New Zealand in 1840 he could find no trace of his collection. Duplicates had been planted in Busby's vineyard at Kirkton in the Hunter Valley and these were the basis of chardonnay in Australia. Kirkton was taken over by Lindemans in 1914, and is the country's oldest continually producing vineyard.Although Busby's books are now keenly pursued because of their significance to the Australian wine trade, it is important to remember that all three of his books had international interest precisely because of their detailed and practical nature, which set out the basics of wine-making in an accessible fashion. This is particularly true of this, the last of the three, which attempted to draw out rules and practices that could have international application. It was immediately hailed as an important book in Europe, with second and third editions being published in London in 1834 and 1839, but as the present book underscores, it was also quickly taken up in the United States. Very little work has been done on Busby's influence in Europe, let alone in America, but it would be fair to say he had a significant international impact, and did a great deal towards spreading the vigneron gospel to what might be called in this context the New World, away from the traditional heartland of France and Spain.

        DELINEATIONS OF AMERICAN SCENERY AND MANNERS [binding title, extracted from ORNITHOLOGICAL BIOGRAPHY]

      Edinburgh, 1835. Modern three-quarter brown morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Light shelf wear. Bookplate on front pastedown. Some unobtrusive ink underlining on titlepage. Minor foxing and age-toning. Very good. These extracts from ORNITHOLOGICAL BIOGRAPHY pull together in one volume all sixty of the short travel pieces that Audubon interspersed among the descriptions of birds in the first three volumes of the text for his famous ornithological work. These "episodes" were intended to divert the general reader and are of considerable literary and historical interest, since they describe persons and events on the American frontier from Newfoundland to Florida. One of the classic texts of American natural history, including accounts of his experiences in the Florida Keys, along the Mississippi, and in Louisiana and Kentucky in the 1820s and '30s. The sketches were collected and published separately in 1926.

        GUIDE TO TEXAS EMIGRANTS

      Boston, 1835. Modern dark green cloth (the same as the original), spine gilt. Map backed with later paper, lower right quarter supplied in facsimile (the inset map of Galveston only, not affecting the map of Texas), several small tears and losses repaired. Several upper corners with tissue repairs. Contemporary meteorological tables pasted to rear endpapers. Minor soiling and foxing. A good, solid copy. Woodman wrote this guidebook, one of the first in English devoted to Texas, to serve the purposes of the Galveston Bay and Texas Land Company and their promotion of lands in Texas. Part of the text of Woodman's book is a pure promotion for the Galveston Bay and Texas Land Company. It also contains a discussion of the various land grants in Texas, speeches and official reports on Texas, accounts of travellers' visits there, and testimonial letters from settlers. The engraved plate is captioned "The Buffalo Hunt" and is after a painting by A. Fisher. A rare and important Texas guide, with a most important map of Texas, seldom met with.

[Bound with his:] Fifth Geological Report to the Twenty-Third General Assembly of the State of Tennessee. [Bound with his:] Seventh Geological Report to the Twenty-Fifth General Assembly of the State of Tennessee

      Nashville, TN: S. Nye & Co. Printers to the House, 1835-1843. First editions of the four reports. 8vo. 32 pp., folding map; 37 pp., large folding map; 75 pp., three folding maps, two folding plates; 45 pp., folding map. Bound ahead of the four Tennessee geological reports is a copy of G.W. Featherstonhaugh's Report of a Geological Reconnoissance Made in 1835, from the Seat of Government, by the Way of Green Bay and the Wisconsin Territory (Washington, DC: Printed by Gales and Seaton, 1836; 136 pp., four plates, but lacks the large folding map). Drury Paine Armstrong's copy with his ownership signature on the front pastedown and on the title pages of several of the pamphlets; Armstrong (1799-1856), Tennessee farmer, merchant, and public official, was one of the largest landowners in eastern Tennessee, his 50,000 acres making up ten per-cent of what is now the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, his house, Crescent Bend, a historical museum in Knoxville. For the four Tennessee pamphlets, Allen Tennessee Imprints 1256, 1437, 1731, and 2018. Allen More Tennessee Rarities 753 (for the fifth report): "This was one of several Geological Reports issued by Troost. While earlier ones obviously were issued, the earliest extant copy is his Third Report, printed in Nashville in 1835. I have selected the Fifth Report for inclusion here; it was the first to include three folding maps, adding to the desirability. However, all of Troost's reports are rare today." With the major defect for the Featherstonhaugh noted, a very good sammelband of the four scarce Tennessee geological reports, with a nice association. The five pamphlets bound together in contemporary calf (rubbed), gilt rules and leather label on the spine. (#6190)

        GEORGIA SCENES, CHARACTERS, INCIDENTS, &c. IN THE FIRST HALF CENTURY OF THE REPUBLIC. By a Native Georgian

      Augusta, Ga, 1835. Contemporary three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Extremities worn. Contemporary ownership inscription on front pastedown, fly leaf, and titlepage. Newspaper clipping pasted to rear fly leaf. Toning and foxing, some light wear to text. A good, solid copy. In a half green morocco and marbled boards box. The rare first edition of a classic of southern literature and manners, GEORGIA SCENES... is written in the form of a series of sketches set in frontier Georgia at the beginning of the 19th century. Although in fictional form, the book is such realistic social history that it presents one of the best pictures of life in that time and place, and straddles the line between fact and fiction. Longstreet said that his purpose was "to supply a chasm in history which has always been overlooked - the manners, customs, amusements, wit dialect, as they appear in all grades of society to an ear and eye witness of them...there is scarcely one word from the beginning to the end of the book that is not strictly GEORGIAN." The book stands at the beginning of a long line of southern humor.

        [ THE PRODIGAL SON]

      Hartford, Ct., 1835. Each with some wear and small tears around the edges, light creasing and foxing. Good. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet. These lithographs relate the biblical story of the prodigal son, updating it to take place in America of the early 19th century. The first image is captioned "THE PRODIGAL SON RECEIVING HIS PATRIMONY. He gathered it all together and took his Journey into a far Country." It depicts the prodigal son standing at a table in his family library, as his father gives him his patrimony and his brother looks on. An interesting aspect of the image is the numerous thick folio volumes in the library's built-in bookshelves, especially three very large and thick volumes which reside in a bookcase cut deeply into the wall. The second image is captioned "THE PRODIGAL SON REVELLING WITH HARLOTS. He Wasted his Substance with Riotous Living," and depicts the prodigal and two other males enjoying food, drink, and pleasures of the flesh with three women in a bawdy house. The next image depicts "THE PRODIGAL SON IN MISERY. He would fain have filled his belly with the Husks that the swine did eat." In this scene the prodigal is seated in a barnyard, his clothes tattered, as swine root around at his feet. The final image is "THE PRODIGAL SON RETURNED TO HIS FATHER. Father I have Sinned against Heaven, and in thy Sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son." The son, in tattered clothes, is accepted back into the bosom of his family by his father, mother, and a sister, and their federal-style home is depicted in the background. Daniel Wright Kellogg and his brothers were noted lithographers in 19th-century America. They were second only to Currier & Ives in their output, and produced images in a wide variety of subject areas. They issued a noted series on Temperance issues, and Peters ascribes this "famous" set of Prodigal Son images to that group. They were "the only group of whom it is at all possible to say that they were for a time near rivals of Currier & Ives" - Peters.

        Histoire naturelle des Céphalopodes Acétabulifères vivants et fossiles.

      - Paris, Lacour, 1835-1848. ATLAS: 102 lithographed plates of which 84 finely hand-coloured. Contemporary half cloth. A complete copy has pp. lvi, 361, with 144 plates of which 117 coloured. The work, published in 21 parts, is the most splendid publication on cephalopods and is one of rarest natural history books. We have only sold one copy which was in 1953. The 102 plates we offer were published in 1834 and 1835 and comprise parts 1-11. The remaining plates were published in 1839-1842. The work is important as it describes numerous new species and is the first important compilation of cephalopods. The publication of the work was particularly lengthy and confused as Férussac died in 1836 and Orbigny had left for an eight year long voyage to South America. The plates are incredibly impressive drawn by the best French artists of the period such as J.G. Prêtre, A. Prévosts, Oudart and Werner. Many of the plates have been heightened with gum Arabic. The atlas is preserved in a contemporary half cloth binding, lacking a part from the lower spine. Some plates are loose. Apart from some minor foxing the plates are in fine condition.Nissen ZBI, 1347. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Memoirs of the Life of the Late John Mytton...with notices of his Hunting, Shooting, Driving, Racing, and Extravagant Exploits, by Nimrod

      London: Rudolph Ackermann, 1835. First edition in book form. With 12 hand colored plates by Henry Alken. 1 vols. 8vo. Bound in late 19th century full red morocco, spine gilt, a.e.g., with the original front cover cloth bound in at back, by Riviere. Bookplate of Harry Twyford Peters. Extremities very slightly rubbed; a near fine copy. First edition in book form. With 12 hand colored plates by Henry Alken. 1 vols. 8vo. The career of "Mad Jack" Mytton (1796-1834) is the apotheosis of Regency eccentricity. Born to wealth and position, he plunged into a life of headlong extravagance, and his fearless, heedless nature drew him to exploits that approached, and later transcended, the irrational. Nimrod's sympathetic biography contains 12 plates by Alken. Although subsequent editions increased their number, this, the first, contained three that were not used again.

        ORATION ON THE LIFE AND CHARACTER OF GILBERT MOTIER DE LAFAYETTE. DELIVERED AT THE REQUEST OF BOTH HOUSES OF THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES, BEFORE THEM, IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AT WASHINGTON, ON THE 31st DECEMBER, 1834

      Washington, 1835. Contemporary red straight-grained morocco, ruled in gilt, spine elaborately gilt. Slight darkening to boards, but a near fine copy. In a red half morocco and cloth box. A copy of Adams' speech honoring the memory of Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette. This copy is in a presentation binding of red straight-grained morocco, of the sort favored by the Adams family for decades, and is printed on thick paper. John Quincy Adams devoted his entire career to government service. The son of President John Adams, he himself served as the sixth President, as a U.S. Senator from 1803-8, as Secretary of State from 1817 to 1825, and in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1831 until his death in the U.S. Capitol in 1848. Isaac McKim (1775- 1838) served as aide-de-camp to General Samuel Smith during the War of 1812, and was involved in the defense of Baltimore. When Gen. Smith resigned from Congress to take a seat in the Senate, McKim was elected to fill the vacancy. McKim served in the House of Representatives as a Congressman from Maryland from 1823 to 1825 and from 1833 to 1838. He temporarily left national politics to become a director of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad from 1827 to 1831, and he was also an officer of the American Society for Colonizing the Free People of Color of the United States. Adams provides a review of Lafayette's contributions to American independence and his activities in the decades after the Revolutionary War, particularly his involvement in the French Revolution and various French governments which followed. In this brief biography, Adams reflects "upon the life and character of a man whose life was, for nearly threescore years, the history of the civilized world - of a man, of whose character, to say that it is indissolubly identified with the Revolution of our Independence, is little more than to mark the features of his childhood - of a man, the personified image of self- circumscribed liberty." An eight-page appendix records Congressional actions related to the death of Lafayette.

        Das Leben Jesu kritisch betrachtet. Erste Ausgabe.

      Tübingen Osiander /1836 1835 - 2 Bde. gr.8°. XVI, 731, (1); XII, 750, (2) S. Einfache Original-Pappbände d. Zt. (Einbände stärker berieben und bestossen, Besitzerst. a. Titel, Buchblöcke gut). David Friedrich Strauß (* 27. Januar 1808 in Ludwigsburg; + 8. Februar 1874 ebenda), deutscher Schriftsteller, Philosoph und Theologe. "Das Leben Jesu kritisch bearbeitet" machte Strauss mit einem Schlage zu einem von den berühmtesten und gefürchtetsten in der zeitgenössischen Litteratur. Die epochemachende Bedeutung dieses Werkes beruht auf der grundsätzlichen Entschiedenheit, mit der sein Verfasser den herrschenden Auffassungen der evangelischen Geschichte eine neue entgegenstellte, der Kühnheit und Folgerichtigkeit, der dialektischen Gewandtheit und schriftstellerischen Meisterschaft, womit er seinen Standpunkt an dem Gegenstand seiner Untersuchung durchführte. Hatten Supranaturalisten und Rationalisten bis dahin an dem streng historischen Charakter der biblischen Erzählungen festgehalten und ihr Gegensatz sich darauf beschränkt, daß die Wunderberichte von jenen als solche stehen gelassen, von diesen ins Natürliche umgedeutet wurden; war auch Schleiermacher in der Hauptsache nicht über die rationalistische Exegese, die Hegel'sche Schule, nach dem Vorgang ihres Meisters, nicht über eine unklare Gleichsetzung des Historischen und Speculativen hinausgekommen, und hatte selbst die weitgehendste Kritik höchstens in den Außenwerken der evangelischen Geschichte einzelne sagenhafte Zuthaten anzuerkennen gewagt, so führte St. mit einer in alles Einzelne eingehenden Gründlichkeit den Beweis, daß ein großer Theil der evangelischen Erzählungen nicht aus geschichtlichen Berichten, sondern aus Dichtungen bestehe, und er behauptete dies insbesondere von allen Wundergeschichten, das Hauptwunder der Auferstehung miteingeschlossen, von den Reden Christi im vierten Evangelium und von der ganzen ihm eigenthümlichen Schilderung seiner Person und Geschichte. Jene Dichtungen erklärte er aber nicht für das bewußte Werk bestimmter Personen, sondern für ein Erzeugniß des christlichen Gemeingeistes, für eine mythische Umbildung der Geschichte, bei der sich die religiöse Phantasie, ohne sich dessen bewußt zu sein, von einem doppelten Motiv habe leiten lassen: einerseits vondem Bestreben, den Stifter des Christenthums in immer zunehmendem Maaße zu verherrlichen, andererseits von dem Bedürfniß, in ihm die Erfüllung der messianisch gedeuteten alttestamentlichen Aussprüche und Vorbilder, überhaupt alle die Züge nachzuweisen, aus denen sich das Messiasbild jener Zeit zusammensetzte, und zu denen namentlich auch die Aehnlichkeit mit Moses und seiner Geschichte gehörte. St. hat später selbst anerkannt, daß diese Erklärung des Ungeschichtlichen in den evangelischen Berichten nur theilweise genüge; aber an der Berechtigung seines Angriffs auf ihre Geschichtlichkeit hat er jederzeit entschieden festgehalten. Was er mit diesem kühnen Angriff gewagt hatte, und wie tief er damit in die Ueberzeugungen der Zeit einschnitt, zeigte sich sofort an der Bewegung, die derselbe hervorrief. Kein theologisches Werk, seit den Wolfenbüttler Fragmenten, hat gegen seinen Urheber einen solchen Sturm entfesselt, wie das "Leben Jesu". Die wissenschaftliche Arbeit der protestantischen Theologen drehte sich Jahre lang fast nur um dieses Buch. Hunderte von Entgegnungen jedes Umfangs erschienen, von allen Standpunkten und in allen Tonarten, in der Regel aber mit leidenschaftlicher Gehässigkeit, wurde es bestritten; und wenn St. im Vorwort seines ersten Bandes seine Leser auf die Schlußabhandlung vertröstet hatte, welche den dogmatischen Gehalt des Lebens Jesu als unversehrt nachweisen werde, so konnte diese doch mit ihrem Endergebniß, daß nur die Menschheit, aber kein Einzelner, das Subject der Prädicate sein könne, welche die Kirche dem Gottmenschen beilegt, solchen, denen gerade an der Einzelpersönlichkeit des Gottmenschen alles gelegen war, selbstverständlich nur als ein weiterer schlagender Beweis für die Gefährlichkeit de [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        NORTH AMERICAN, SEWESSISSING CHIEF OF THE EOWAH INDIANS [manuscript caption title]

      [N.p., 1835. Mounted at the upper and lower edges to a slightly larger sheet. Fine. A handsome watercolor of a Native American chief, after the original by Charles Hamilton Smith that appeared as a colored engraving in Baron Georges Cuvier's THE ANIMAL KINGDOM. This illustration is unsigned, and depicts the Sewessissing, chief of the Iowa Indians. The unknown copyist of Smith's original displays himself as an artist of some talent, having produced a remarkably accurate version of the original. The profile is strong and sharp, and the colors are lively and the shading sensitive. It is a highly accomplished portrait of a striking Native American warrior. This illustration of "Sewessissing Chief of the Eowah Indians," appears in the first volume of Baron Cuvier's sixteen-volume work, THE ANIMAL KINGDOM, which was published in London from 1827-1835. The first four volumes of that work are dedicated to the the "class mammalia," and contain hundreds of illustrations, mostly of animals. Of these illustrations, some eighty-three are by Charles Hamilton Smith, including this portrait of Sewessissing, and a portrait of a young African male. The portrait of Sewessissing is included in order to illustrate what Cuvier proposed as a new variety of the human species, the "American," who Cuvier saw as "a link between the Caucasian and the Mongolian, but approximating more to the latter." The text goes on to describe the (native) American thusly: "the skin is dark, with more or less of a copper tint. The hair is straight and black, the beard small, forehead low, eyes dark and oblique, face broad and prominent, and cheeks rounded. The features, in general, particularly the nose, are more distinct and projecting than in the Mongolian type. The mouth is large, and the lips are rather thick." Smith's portrait of Sewessissing is an excellent illustration of Cuvier's "North American." Charles Hamilton Smith (1776-1859), a soldier, artist, and natural historian, was born in East Flanders and studied at the Austrian Academy for Artillery and Engineers, after which he embarked on a career in the British army. Smith saw duty in the Napoleonic wars, and in 1816 was sent on a mission to the United States and Canada. It is likely at this time that he observed Native Americans, and his resulting illustration of Sewessissing was almost certainly done from his firsthand observations. Following his retirement in 1820 Smith devoted himself to his art and natural history studies, producing thousands of watercolors, and lecturing and publishing widely. Smith worked closely with Cuvier on natural history publications, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1824. "His industry enabled him to master several disciplines and his accuracy of observation assisted him in the making of accurate drawings of his subjects" - DNB (online).

A handsome set and quit scarce. The last set sold at auction in 2006. OCLC records two holding of only eight parts in four volumes. An important work by the Count Las Cases who followed Napoleon into exile at St. Helena. For 18 months he recorded his conversations with Napoleon on his principles of warfare, his identification of the French Revolution with the Empire, his political philosophy, and his sentiments on religion and philosophy. A letter of complaint about Napoleon's treatment led to Las Cases' deportation and to the seizure of his manuscript by the British government. Forbidden to enter England, he traveled in Germany and Belgium until he was allowed to return to France after the death of Napoleon in 1822. Las Cases represents the 17th military generation of his family, which began with the reign of Louis VIII in 1223. During the time between the reign of Louis VIII and Napoleon's exile in 1815, the Las Cases family was intimately involved in the majority of the European conflicts that occurred, being closely tied to the monarchy and writing their biographies including that of Columbus.

        Journal of a Tour through some of the vineyards of Spain & France.

      New York: Charles S. Francis, 1835. Octavo, 166 pp., 2 pp. terminal advertisement for the New York printer; bookplate of Australian wine-maker Max Lake, bound in recent brown cloth. Printed in New York for the fledgling wine-making industry in America. The London edition of this important book is seemingly the rarest of any of the three revolutionary works Busby wrote on wine, but this American edition is almost unknown; Hordern House have only handled one other copy, while the only copy of the book recorded in an Australian collection, in the National Library, was acquired some time after Ferguson completed his monumental biography and indeed apparently after the publication of the Addenda, as it is not listed in either work (but has since been given the Ferguson no. 1894d).Scotsman James Busby (1801-1871) was probably the most important single figure in the early history of the Australian wine industry. Busby's three books on viticulture had an enormous effect on the early wine industry. He had published Treatise on the Culture of the Vine in 1825; it was largely a compilation from European writers, addressed to 'the attention of the higher classes', but it prompted Governor Brisbane to encourage him in practical experimentation. A second work, his 1830 Manual of Plain Directions, was for decades the only really helpful book on the actual method of making wine, and copies of it are commensurably rarer than the preceding book, in our experience, no doubt because it was so much used and consulted.His third book described Busby's four-month tour of Europe, during which he collected four hundred and thirty-seven cuttings from Montpellier Botanical Gardens and one hundred and thirty-three from the Luxembourg Gardens. By January 1833 the vines - which Busby donated to the government - had arrived by convict ship the Camden and were flourishing in the Sydney Botanic Gardens. But when he came back to Sydney from New Zealand in 1840 he could find no trace of his collection. Duplicates had been planted in Busby's vineyard at Kirkton in the Hunter Valley and these were the basis of chardonnay in Australia. Kirkton was taken over by Lindemans in 1914, and is the country's oldest continually producing vineyard.Although Busby's books are now keenly pursued because of their significance to the Australian wine trade, it is important to remember that all three of his books had international interest precisely because of their detailed and practical nature, which set out the basics of wine-making in an accessible fashion. This is particularly true of this, the last of the three, which attempted to draw out rules and practices that could have international application. It was immediately hailed as an important book in Europe, with second and third editions being published in London in 1834 and 1839, but as the present book underscores, it was also quickly taken up in the United States. Very little work has been done on Busby's influence in Europe, let alone in America, but it would be fair to say he had a significant international impact, and did a great deal towards spreading the vigneron gospel to what might be called in this context the New World, away from the traditional heartland of France and Spain. The book has heavy foxing, particularly to title-page and preliminaries, the edges of the paper with some brittleness (the condition of the paper is not unusual for an American-printed book of this date), bound in modern brown library buckram.

        Bildnis Friedrich Preller d.J. (1838-1901), Brustbild in Dreiviertelprofil nach links mit gesenktem Kopf.

      - Bleistift, auf festem chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts unten bezeichnet und datiert „Spinnmühle 92.". 22,8:14,7 cm. In den Rändern etwas vergilbt. Skizzenbuchblatt. Die Porträt- und Genremalerin war die Ehefrau des in Rom geborenen polnischstämmigen Genre- und Historienmalers Z. von Suchodolski (1835-1908). Sie war Schülerin von F.W.P. Pauwel (1830-1903) in Weimar, wo sie wohl nach 1862 ihren späteren Ehemann kennengelernt hatte, der ebenfalls Schüler von Pauwels war. Nach der Vita ihres Ehemannes, der 1863-1874 in Italien lebte und auch von ihr Bilder mit italienischen Motiven bekannt sind, ist ein gemeinsamer Aufenthalt in Italien anzunehmen. Ob sie ihm 1874 nach Weimar folgte, wo er Professor an der Kunstschule wurde, und dann 1880 nach München, ist zu vermuten. Zudem sind (längere) Aufenthalte um 1883 und 1892 in Dresden bekannt. Hier wird das Paar dem Freundeskreis um den Landschafts- und Marinemaler F. Preller d. J. (1838-1901) zugerechnet, der ab 1880 an der Dresdener Kunstakademie lehrte. Seit 1875 beteiligte sich die Künstlerin an Ausstellungen in Dresden, seit 1878 in Berlin, seit 1880 im Sächsischen Kunstverein und seit 1888 in München. Das Stadtmuseum Dresden besitzt von der Künstlerin ein Bildnis des Malers A.L. Richter (1803-1884). Eine nähere Verbindung läßt auch ein Brief Suchodolskas an Richter von 1881 vermuten.

        Die Euthanasie oder die Kunst den Tod zu erleichtern .

      Berlin, G. Reimer, 1835 - 8vo (208 x 120 mm), pp xviii [-xx] 183 [1]; paper very lightly browned, a very good copy in original black boards. £950First edition of one of the first monographs on euthanasia. The author proposes a series of ethical and practical considerations that should guide euthanasia. He believes that the physician should try to ensure that patients do not die before their time and that a natural death is achieved, but in the face of unbearable suffering other considerations could enter. He emphasises the importance of effective pain relief.Part of this work was published in a journal article that appeared in 1832 ('Ueber Euthanasie oder über die vom Arzte ausgehenden Hülfen den Tod zu erleichtern. Bruchstück einer grösseren Schrift', pp 67-108 in Journ. pract. Heilk., 74).OCLC records only NLM and McGill for North America

Ownership signature dated 1860 on the front paste-downs of both. volumes. Minor rubbing to boards and leather, a very good set. externally, nearly fine internally. (#148266). First edition. Howitt's first work of fiction. "Collection of seven novellas and short stories using material from the Old Testament to tell stories in a highly elevated, somber tone. The epic struggles in some cases involve angels and demons. A cosmic struggle in outer space unfolds in 'Nichar, the Exile of Heaven.' The author defends the use of exotic settings in his eight-page preface. It seems appropriate that this collection of tales of war and conflict should have belonged, as the ownership inscription attests, to a member of the British Army (9th Lancers)." - Robert Eldridge.

        An Illustration of Osbourne's Pictorial Alphabet.

      C. Osbourne, and Messrs. Ackerman & Co., London 1835 - 28 engraved cards, 72x76mm, plus an 8 pp. stitched booklet printed on pink glossy paper, housed in a green mottled paper-covered card slipcase. The outer leaves of the booklet detached, plates lightly foxed and a bit soiled, edges slightly rubbed, slipcase cracked along one edge. The pictorial alphabet and its accompanying booklet of 'illustrations' is dedicated by permission to the future Queen Victoria (then Princess Alexandrina Victoria) by Charles Osbourne, who appears to have been singularly unsuccessful at a number of professions. A few years after this publication he was in debtor's prison in Warwick, described as being formerly 'General Dealer and Manager of the Magna Charta Steam Packet' in Hull, 'General Merchant' in Liverpool, 'Vendor of the Pictorial Alphabet' elsewhere in Liverpool, 'General Dealer' while lodging at multiple addresses in Middlesex, and most recently a lodger in Leamington, 'out of business'. The engravings are by Henry Wallis (c.1805-1890), also an unlucky man: brother to Robert and William Wallis, both also engravers (Robert particularly associated with Turner), he suffered attacks of paralysis and had to give up engraving, becoming a picture dealer instead. In the way of such small and loose children's material, copies are now quite rare, with COPAC locating holdings in the V&A and BL only. The Osborne Collection of Early Children's Books in Toronto holds 3 copies, none complete.
