        Carlsson.

      Linköping, A. Petre, 1835. 8:o. (8),214,(1) s. Häftad och oskuren i samtida gråpappomslag med handskriven titeletikett. Ryggen delvis defekt och solbränd. Gamla lagningar på titelbladet, s. (4-5), 15, 65 och 195, samtliga genomförda med gråpapper i gammal tid. "Läse Sällskapet i Gefle" skrivet med bläck och sedan överstruket upptill på främre omslagets utsida. Med G. Lindbloms namnteckning.. Översatt efter tredje utvidgade upplagan från 1832. C. A. Carlsson var åren 1830-33 kyrkoherde i den svenska församlingen på St. Barthélemy och startade där en skola "för bättre mans barn". Efter hemkomsten översatte han Coleridges arbete med egna kommentarer i vilka han bl.a. gick till hätskt angrepp mot metodisterna på St. Barhélemy, vars inflytande han sökt marginalisera. Carlssons många kommentarer ger intressanta inblickar i den svenska kolonins vardagsliv och Carlssons resa till och vistelse på St. Barthélemy. I texten finns tillägg av Carlsson om bl.a. "talkytalky-språket" ("negrernes rotvälska") och "couleurta frillor" samt egna observationer som att hajar föredrar kött från vita än från svarta. Carlsson stödjer med tveksamhet en gradvis frigivning av de västindiska slavarna, men vänder sig mot svartmålningen av plantageägarna: "En plantör älskar sin slaf såsom svenska bonden sin häst, det vill säga ofta mer än hustrun." Carlssons egen uppfattning om slavarna är i själva verket mycket låg: "Negern, sådan jag i Westindien haft tillfälle att observera honom, är knappt till hälften menniska; resten är apa och tiger. [---] Negern såsom slaf är ödmjuk och ofta trogen en herre, som förstår att med allvarlig godhet behandla honom; men såsom fri är han den öfvermodigaste och egenkäraste varelse på jorden"

        Hudibras

      London: W. Nicol for John Murray, 1835. Two volumes, octavo, extra-illustrated with 71 plates by Hogarth and others (inlaid to size or pasted down); a very fine fresh and clean copy in contemporary dark green pebble grain morocco gilt, all edges gilt. A very handsome extra-illustrated copy of Butler's famous mock epic, in fine condition. This edition begins with a short preface describing the work of Nash, whose life of Butler and voluminous notes on Hudibras are reproduced here. Nash (1725-1811) was a clergyman who spent his time in historical research rather than preaching to his parishioners. He wrote a definitive work on the history of Worcestershire, where he lived, and the fact that Butler was born in the same county induced him to do this edition of Butler, which DNB describes as 'splendid' and 'entertaining'.

        Nouveaux Exercices de Mathématiques [& title to Part 8]: Mémoire sur la Dispersion de la Lumière

      iv, 24 pp.; 25-56 pp.; 57-116 pp.; 117-180 pp.; 181-204 pp.; , iv, 205-236 pp. Eight parts in six livraisons. Large 4to, orig. pink printed wrappers (two spines a bit defective, upper wrapper of the final livraison detached), uncut. Prague: 1835 [Parts 1-7] & J.F. Calve, 1836 [Part 8]. First edition of this important memoir in which Cauchy explains the dispersion of light on the basis of the undulatory theory. It completes Fresnel's researches on the subject. Cauchy was the first to attempt to work out a mathematical basis for the properties of ether. This book was written and printed in Prague where Cauchy resided as tutor to the Duc de Bordeaux after the abdication of his father, King Charles X. The publication of this work is somewhat complicated and has been well-explained by Roger Gaskell in his Catalogue 17 (1996), item 7 (this set): "The original parts are important for understanding how the work was originally published. The Mémoire occupies the first 8 'livraisons' (in 6 separately wrappered parts, livraisons 1, 2, 3-4, 5-6, 7, 8) of a series entitled Nouveaux exercices de mathématiques of which no more was published. The first livraison contains a title-page for Nouveaux exercices and a foreword in which Cauchy explains that it is a sequel to his Exercices de mathématiques published in Paris, and Résumés analytiques published in Turin: the title-page for the Mémoire itself appears in the 8th livraison with a foreword signed by the Société Royale des Sciences de Prague, claiming full credit for publishing 'une édition aussi élégante et correcte que possible.' Cauchy himself initially undertook the publication of the series and the Nouveaux exercices title gives no publisher's name, but when it was taken over by the Société Royale it was distributed by J.G. Calve whose name appears on the Mémoires title-page. The work is sometimes catalogued as Nouveaux exercises, sometimes as Mémoire sur la Dispersion de la Lumière; the former title-page and Cauchy's foreword as sometimes discarded." Fine set preserved in a box. Scarce. Minor foxing. .

        The Right Honourable Lord Yarborough's yacht, The Falcon of 351 tons

      Published by W.J. Huggins, London 1835 - A fine image of Lord Yarborough's `new' yacht William Huggins, one of the best English marine artists of the 19th century, served for several years at sea in the service of the East India Company. On his return to London used his intimate knowledge of sailing vessels to gain regular employment painting carefully detailed ship portraits. The present image falls into this category and represents the yacht that Lord Yarborough (1781-1846) had built after he was elected the first commodore of the Royal Yacht Squadron in 1824. Huggins' painting was very ably aquatinted by Charles Rosenberg, who translated several Huggins ship paintings to print. This is a superb example of 19th century marine printmaking. Colour-printed aquatint, finished by hand, by C. Rosenberg after Huggins.

        Report of the Speeches Delivered at the Dinner Given to Capt. John Hindmarsh, R.N. on his appointment as Governor of South Australia

      London: W. Clowes & Sons, 1835. Octavo booklet, 44pp., a fine copy, the title-page a little dusted, original stitch-marks visible in the gutter; modern dark blue half morocco. The first SA Governor lauded. Rare: published shortly after the establishment of South Australia as a separate colony in 1834, this pamphlet captures much of the enthusiasm surrounding the appointment of Captain John Hindmarsh as the first Governor. It records speeches delivered in honour of Hindmarsh at a large meeting held in his honour during early September 1835. The meeting of 110 gentlemen was chaired by Colonel Robert Torrens and formed 'a very influential and highly respectable company'. Throughout the proceedings speeches were delivered by John Morphett, Sir Francis Lee and George Fife Angas and others. In addition, letters of effusive congratulations were read to the assembled crowd from George Grote and the Duke of Wellington, both of whom had been supporters of the South Australian Association. Of special interest is a speech by Mr. Higgins, honorary secretary to 'The Society for the Protection and Benefit of the Aborigines of the British Colonies'. Higgins' speech comprises two full pages of small type. After a rambling introduction enriched with classical references he addresses the vital importance of the 'religious improvement' and 'intellectual advancement of the aborigines of the British colonies'. In this regard Higgins asserts 'the enlightened system of colonization to be adopted in South Australia is of itself sufficient to encourage our efforts.' The reception for Captain Hindmarsh is followed by a 14-page refutation of adverse claims made about South Australia in the British press by the advocate-general Charles Mann.

First performed in Milan at La Scala on March 8, 1834. The Italian composer Ricci achieved "a notable success with Un'avventura di Scaramuccia, written to a witty libretto, part romance, part theatrical satire, by Felice Romani... [His] is one of the more individual voices of Italian opera of the period. His chief gift was for comedy, to which he brought not only a complete mastery of the traditional devices but also a new, robust buffo manner characterized by a wealth of bouncing allegretto melodies, mostly in duple time, and a not infrequent use of folktune."

        Abbildungen aus der Naturgeschichte

      Zurich: Friedrich Schulthess, c., 1835. Folio, lithographed title, 41 engraved plates, all but 2 coloured by hand, contemporary calf-backed boards, skilfully rebacked with significant section of original flat gilt spine laid down, binder's tape used on inner hinges. First edition of this wonderful compendium of natural history, by the indefatigable Heinrich Rudolf Schinz (1771-1861). Divided into sections on mammals, birds, amphibians and fishes, and invertebrates, the work includes several plates of Australian interest, including fine depictions of the Kangaroo, Platypus, and the Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo. The detailed text, with detailed descriptions of habitats and habits, is by Schinz himself, professor of zoology at Zurich, where he founded the zoological collection and wrote a number of works about vertebrates including birds and fish, as well as several ethnographic studies. This wonderful compendium gives a sense of the breadth of Schinz's interests, and features fine and detailed natural history plates by the renowned Swiss lithographer Karl Josef Brodtmann, whose illustrations are famous for their exceptional accuracy. As is often the case with books produced by Schinz, the work has a rather confusing collation which is only compounded by its rarity. This copy with 41 plates and an error in pagination (which jumps pages 21-26), collates perfectly with the copy in the Stanford University Libraries, noting the 1835 date of publication from Leemann van Elck (Druck, Verlag, Buchhandel im Kanton Zürich, p. 107).

        Blick auf das Kapuzinerkloster bei Amalfi.

      . Öl auf Leinwand, um 1835, verso Nachlaßstempel. 20,3:30,7 cm. Literatur: I. Eichler, Carl Morgenstern. Unter besonderer Berücksichtigung seiner Schaffensphase von 1826 - 1846. Darmstadt 1976, Abb. 17b, S. 59; Ausst. Katalog: Carl Morgenstern und die Landschaftsmalerei seiner Zeit. Frankfurt am Main, Museum Giersch, 2011, Nr. 71 mit Farbabb. Die bei Eichler abgebildete Studie desselben Motivs zeigt gegenüber unserer einen etwas größeren Landschaftsausschnitt und auch den felsigen Küstenstreifen, der sich unterhalb des Klosters befindet, sowie den langen Treppenpfad, der zum Kloster hinaufführt. Auf unserem Bild, das im ganzen skizzenhafter wirkt, ist von dieser Treppe nur ein kleiner Teil zu sehen, während eine überlieferte Bleistiftzeichnung (Eichler Z 100) einen nahezu identischen Ausschnitt wiedergibt und mit "30. Aug. 1835" datiert ist. Sie ist die Vorzeichnung für ein mehrfach auftauchendes Motiv (1838 und 1840, vgl. op. cit. Ö 120 sowie Abb. 1, S. 78).. Zugunsten einer genauen Beachtung der farblichen Erscheinung der Landschaft und um diese auch möglichst getreu einzufangen, hat Morgenstern im vorliegenden Bild die Architektur nur skizzenhaft erfaßt. Daß Morgenstern Amalfi sowie seine nähere Umgebung besonders schätzte, ist bei Eichler (op. cit., S. 78) folgendermaßen beschrieben: "Nach dem Aufenthalt in Capri verbringt der junge Morgenstern mit seinen Malerfreunden einige Studienwochen in der Gegend von Amalfi, was eine der schönsten existierenden Partien ist'. Der Vesuv hingegen scheint den Frankfurter als Motiv nicht sonderlich gereizt zu haben, denn er hatte diesen Vulkan bereits im Juli in Begleitung seiner Malerfreunde erstiegen, dabei jedoch nur den Kraterrand in einer kleinen Faustskizze festgehalten. Nur der schönen Aussicht wegen findet er ihn ungeheuer interessant'. Auch in Paestum hatte er nicht zum Zeichenstift gegriffen, denn: ...man bekommt die Sachen gut lithographiert...'. In der Umgegend von Amalfi entsteht dagegen eine ganze Reihe von Zeichnungen, die später als Grundlagen zu Atelierbildern dienen, wie zum Beispiel das Kapuzinerkloster bei Amalfi" (17a und 17b) [...]". Bei den erwähnten Malerfreunden handelt es sich um J.G. Gmelin (1810-1854) und E. Willers (1803-1880). Der Landschaftsmaler Carl Morgenstern entstammte einer Frankfurter Künstlerfamilie, die über fünf Generationen tätig war. Er war Sohn von Johann Friedrich (1777-1844) und Vater von Friedrich Ernst Morgenstern (1853-1919). Neben seiner Lehrzeit beim Vater studierte er die altniederländische Malerei. Während seines Münchner Aufenthaltes 1832-1834 bildete er sich im Umgang mit den Landschaftsmalern C. Rottmann (1797-1850) und Chr. Morgenstern (1805-1867) weiter. 1833-1834 reiste er in die bayerischen und österreichischen Alpen. Seit 1834 hielt er sich in Italien auf, vorwiegend in Rom. Er unternahm Ausflüge ins Albaner- und Sabinergebirge, nach Neapel und dessen Umgebung (im Spätsommer 1835 hielt er sich in der Umgebung von Amalfi auf) sowie nach Sizilien. 1837 kehrte er nach Frankfurt zurück. Weitere Reisen führten ihn 1839 nach Düsseldorf, Holland, Belgien, 1841 nach Frankreich, in die Schweiz und mehrmals nach Italien. Seine italienischen Landschaftsmotive fand Morgenstern in Venedig, Neapel, der Toskana, auf Capri und Sizilien, während Ansichten von Frankfurt und dem Taunus sowie Main- und Rheinlandschaften kennzeichnend für seine Darstellungen aus dem deutschen Raum sind.

        Children's History of, Beasts, Advice and Select Hymns

      America: Sandbornton Press, 1835. Duodecimo, with a series of woodcut illustrations; original decorated pink wrappers, a very nice copy. Rare children's chapbook, published in America. Intended as a natural history lesson, each animal is fully described and illustrated with naïve word blocks. The selection of beasts includes the kangaroo, and the description and illustration are charming: 'its action in moving is very singular, as it can neither walk nor run, but jumps with such singular swiftness as to escape the pursuit of the fleetest greyhound…'. Early ephemeral books for children rarely survive.

        Les Roses, peintes par. Redouté.décrites et classes selon leur ordre naturel, par.Thory. Troisième edition, publiée sous la direction de M. Pirolle

      Crapelet for P. Dufart and J.F. Hauer & Cie. of St. Petersburg, Paris 1835 - Contemporary French blue half morocco gilt, the flat spine in five compartments delineated by horizontal rules, titled in the second, numbered in the fourth, green silk page-markers, marbled endpapers. A very fine set of Redouté's best known work. The "most complete edition" (Madol) to be published during his lifetime, this is a re-issue of the second octavo edition, with the addition of St. Petersburg to the imprint, and containing the 23 additional plates, the portraits and the frontispiece floral wreath, the biographical note on Thory and additional text. Pierre-Joseph Redouté, the most successful flower painter of all time, together with Claude-Antoine Thory, an ardent botanist and collector of roses, have together in Les Roses produced a work not only of great artistic merit, but also an invaluable scientific record. "Redouté and Thory knew, described and figured almost all the important roses known in their day. Included were many of the key ancestors of our present-day roses. The plates in Les Roses have artistic value, botanical and documentary value, both for the species and cultivars still surviving and for those that have disappeared" (Gisele de la Roche). The roses used as specimens for the work were taken from the collections of Thory, the Malmaison gardens, and from other collections around Paris. Many of the flowers were novelties in Redouté's time, and a number were dedicated to the memory of his friends and acquaintances, such as l'Héritier de Brutelle and Ventenat. The success of the folio edition prompted the issue of a second (first octavo) edition in 40 parts between 1824 and 1826 with 160 plates and an expanded text. New information and new varieties led to the issue of a third edition (second octavo) edition, published in 30 parts between 1828 and 1829. The popularity of the first issue of this edition warranted the publication of the present second issue (with reset and reprinted title pages). In both issues the text was expanded yet again to contain not only more information about the culture of the rose but also by the addition of a biography of Thory by D.Beaumont, the inclusion of Thory's Traité du Rosier and the descriptive text to the 23 additional plates. In addition a floral wreath plate was added as a frontispiece to volume I and the portraits of Redouté and Thory were included for the first time. The plates are masterpieces in miniature of the engraver's art and lose none of the impact of their larger precursors in the process of reducing them from the folio to octavo format. Redouté as presiding genius is plainly discernable. Dunthorne 233; Lawalrée 39; Madol 42; Macphail Redoutéana 22; cf. Nissen BBI 1599; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8751; Stock Rose Books 2371. 3 volumes, octavo. (9 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches). Half-titles. 2 lithographic portraits of Redouté and Thory by C.Motte after Mauraisse, hand-coloured engraved floral wreath by Manceau after Redouté, 183 stipple-engraved plates printed in colours and finished by hand by Chardin, Langlois, Lemaire and others after Redouté (including 3 plates illustrating the anatomy of the rose).

        Colonization of South Australia

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman, 1835. Octavo, folding handcoloured frontispiece map, NSW Colonial Secretary stamps to title and a few pages, printed note about the Henry Parkes collection to front pastedown; a very attractive copy in full red morocco by Sangorski, gilt. From Sir Henry Parkes Parliamentary collection. A fine presentation copy of this important and influential work on South Australian colonisation, one of the earliest books on South Australia and the first book of Australian interest by the important political economist Torrens. Robert Torrens (1780-1864) was a marine officer who served with some distinction during the Napoleonic Wars, and who had a career-long interest in emigration to Australia, and who at one point even angled for an appointment as Governor of New South Wales. He tried to purchase land in the proposed Swan River colony in 1828, but when that fell through turned his attention to promoting South Australia instead. Torrens' book appeared in mid-1835 and the province of South Australia was formally established the following February. A tireless exponent of settlement and colonisation, his scheme was beset by ruinous land speculation and dilatory management, meaning that the colony collapsed in 1841 and had to be rescued with a loan from the British Parliament, metamorphosising into a crown colony the following year. This copy has a particularly good association: it was given by Torrens to "Longfield", almost certainly the professor of law at Trinity College Dublin, Mountifort Longfield, an expert in property law and critic of Thomas Malthus. At a later stage the book ended up in the library of the Colonial Secretary of New South Wales and, as a printed label in the front confirms, formed part of the "Collection associated with the name of Sir Henry Parkes

        Morning Prayer [and] Evening Prayer

      Sydney: Jones, n.d., but circa, 1835. Pair of broadsides, each 450 x 390 mm.; in fine original condition, mounted and framed. Early examples of educational broadsides printed in Australia. Beautiful examples of fine early printing in Sydney, unrecorded in this form. Possibly prepared for the Church Mission Society, these early broadsides were printed in Sydney at a time when virtually all religious tracts were printed in London. These two prayers for children - to be said in the morning and evening - are exceptionally scarce early examples of local Sydney printing. Regarding the publication of these prayers, it is known that Jones had prepared some comparable religious broadsides, apparently for use in Church Mission Society schools, such as a pair of Maori lesson sheets printed circa 1833, the first "Christ raiseth Lazarus to life" or "Ka wa-ka-a-ra-hia a Ra-ha-ru-hi e Te Ka-rai-ti"; and the second "Children brought to Christ" or "Ka mau-ria nga ta-ma-ri-ki ki Te Ka-rai-ti" (see Williams, A Bibliography of Printed Maori to 1900, no. 13). Given that the present sheets are of a similar size to the Maori examples, it is likely that these were prepared around the same time, possibly also for the Church Mission Society. This hypothesis is supported by a note in Ferguson accompanying four Maori language sheets (no. 1674): 'in the Dixson Collection are two separate sheets… One is a Morning Prayer, the other an Evening Prayer… They came to this collection among other papers from the collection of C.A. Ewen of New Zealand.' Ferguson gives a putative date of circa 1835 for those particular sheets (see also Williams, Bibliography, no. 12). Certainly their sentiments are touching and as relevant for their purpose today as they were in the early nineteenth century: 'Keep us from wicked thoughts and bad tempers; make us try to learn all that we are taught' (from Morning Prayer); and from Evening Prayer: 'Make us try to remember all that we have learned to-day'. Of the handful of locally printed educational works which predate these broadsides, very few have survived; indeed many are known only through advertisements in newspapers of the day. These ephemeral broadsides are rare survivors.

        (Ross's) Hobart Town Almanack, and Van Diemen's Land Annual for 1835

      Hobart: James Ross, 1835. Small octavo, frontispiece, x,(xiv - almanac), short leaf advertisement, 13-324 pp. (last blank), engraved plate of platypus bones; very good in later worn maroon cloth with polished calf spine. A rare Tasmanian almanac of great significance to the early history of the colony. The volume contains Jorgen Jorgenson's important 'Shred of Autobiography', what appears to be the first comprehensive index of Tasmanian flora by James Backhouse, and two engravings by Thomas Bock, including a scientific depiction of the platypus. Copenhagen-born Jorgenson is most notorious for deposing the Danish governor of Iceland in 1809 and appointing himself head of government with the title 'The Protector.' Described by Marcus Clarke as 'a human comet,' Jorgenson and his career as a sailor, privateer, spy, revolutionary and explorer have formed the subject of several books, most of which rely on the swashbuckling self-portrait he paints here. Indeed, the audacity and grandeur of the Jorgenson's tales approach MacDonald Fraser's Harry Flashman (minus the confessions). Many relate to his time in Australia which he first reached around 1800 where he met Flinders and Baudin among others. Equally important in this volume is the 54-page 'Index Plantarum, or an attempt towards a popular description of some of the most common and remarkable indigenous plants of Van Diemen's Land' compiled by James Backhouse and Ronald Campbell Gunn. Backhouse, a noted naturalist from a prominent English Quaker family, travelled widely in the colonies from 1832 to 1838, and spent three years in Tasmania working closely with Governor Arthur. Gunn, a high ranking official in the colonial administration who was later a member of the Legislative Council, was an important botanist who published widely and notably hosted Dumont d'Urville during his visit to Hobart. Most of the specimens collected by the two were sent to Kew. The two plates by Bock, show 'The Teeth and Underjaw of the Platypus' and a 'Fish Caught in the Derwent.' Both represent uncommon examples of early locally printed illustrations of Tasmanian wildlife. A noted engraver in London, Bock was transported to the penal colony in 1824 after being found guilty of drugging women. He was pardoned in 1832 and successfully established himself as a portrait artist. Several of his works are exhibited in the Tasmanian Museum and Gallery. The almanac was compiled by James Ross, a government printer who published several gazettes and newspapers, and his thorough knowledge of the colony in the early 1830s is reflected throughout. Ferguson notes three plates, but only two ever appear to have been included.

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

      London: Simpkin, Marshall, and Co, 1835. Octavo, a little dusted, neat owner's inscriptions, bookplate; a very good tall copy in worn and bumped but charming maroon calico, a little frayed at spine, original paper label chipped, unusual pen markings to front board. 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. Despite his unflinching report on some conflict with the local tribes, overall there is a sympathetic and positive account of the aborigines. The book includes nine appendices of which two are extracts reprinted from the 'W.A. Journal' 1834-1835 regarding Aboriginal matters. One appendix is a proposal for a 'Native institution' in the immediate vicinity of the nascent colony at Perth, an 'experiment of civilizing the natives' under the supervision of one Mr. Armstrong, fluent in the native language. This exercise in goodwill is motivated by 'a disposition to doing the natives good' so that they may be free from violence 'whether from each other or from white people', medical aid and a regular food supply. The most important of the nine clauses emphasises the role of the Governor as Aboriginal protector 'as long as they behave well they shall not be molested by any one, whether black or white; and if they are, the Governor will take their part.' This proposal is followed by 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. The trackers persevere when hope is perishing, and are delighted 'beyond all conception' when the boy is finally found…'we cannot but esteem the act, and highly applaud the noble disposition of these two savages.' The Davidson copy, with the earlier manuscript owner's names of Anne Disney and Anna June Milligan. This copy does not have the advertisement leaves sometimes seen (and assumed to be present in slightly later issues).

      Oahu: Na na Misionari I Pai, 1835. Small octavo, dusted and a little browned, some pages with marked spotting; a very good copy in original reverse calf binding, neatly rebacked to match, a little worn, early 'Society of Inquiry Library' label to front pastedown. Rare and important: a landmark in missionary publishing in Hawaii, this is the first complete edition of the New Testament in the Hawaiian language, printed entirely by the Mission Press. David Forbes in the Hawaiian National Bibliography gives an excellent and detailed account of the circumstances surrounding the publication. Printing of the New Testament began after the General Meeting in June 1835, where the task of preparing an Hawaiian version was given precedence over any other task the missionaries were working on. The work was actually completed in early 1836. A substantial number of copies was published but, as with many early Hawaiian imprints, the survival rate today is very low.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations ...with a commentary by the author of "England and America

      London: Charles Knight, 1835-, 1840. Four volumes, duodecimo, each with engraved frontispieces of Smith, Ricardo and other eminent economists; each volume bearing ownership name 'C.M. Wakefield'; bindings show some wear and spine ends a little chipped yet a very good set in original blind decorated green publisher's cloth. A Wakefield family copy of this work to which Edward Gibbon Wakefield had provided a preface and commentary, a popular edition of Adam Smith's pivotal economic treatise. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography notes that by 1833 'Wakefield had become a confirmed disciple of Adam Smith and published an edited version of the Wealth of Nations, in four volumes, between 1835 and 1839. The extensive commentaries that accompany each chapter clearly outline his thinking as he sought to create a model post-enlightenment society.' The set comprises mixed editions in uniform publisher's cloth, with each volume bearing the manuscript owner's name 'C.M. Wakefield'. While this is evidently a family copy therefore, the initials do not correspond to any of his immediate family members. Given the emigration of several family members to New Zealand and Australia, the books may have belonged to a descendent living in the colonies, perhaps Clara Marie Wakefield, daughter of William Wakefield and Maria Sophia Emilie Schwass, born 1886 in Waimea East, Nelson, New Zealand; another possibility would be Clara Wakefield, born Melbourne 1864, daughter of Frank and Agnes Wakefield.

        A Fine ALS By Fry Addressed to Lawrence Peel, Regarding the Progress Being Made at the Coast Guard Station Libraries

      1835. Upton Lane, West Ham., 12 Mo. 2nd 1835. 4to. 3pp (some 55 lines) written in a neat hand throughout, remains of seal, small repair to the top of the fold, not affecting any of the text, folded for posting, addressed to Lawrence Peel, at Kemp Town, Brighton, with remains of seal and several post marks 'Express' and 'Night', '2 Dec 1835'. Elizabeth Gurney Fry (1780-1845) a tireless campaigner for Prison Reform was also involved in numerous other projects to help those in need. In 1825 after witnessing at first hand the loneliness of the post of coast-guard, she put forward the idea that every one of England's five hundred coast-guard stations should be furnished with a library. She 'estimated the minimum cost at three pounds apiece. Bibles were given out at once free by the Bible Society [and] a grant was finally made by Sir Robert Peel of five hundred pounds, and a strong committee was formed to raise the extra thousand and to buy and distribute the books' (Whitney). Our letter, written some ten years later, and addressed to Peel's cousin, Lawrence, outlines the progress being made, along with some of the problems faced. Fry writes: 'The presents from the Booksellers woud be too much for thee to look over. They have now I believe all passed the revision of the gentleman appointed by Captain Bowles for this purpose'. She goes on to state that the 'books of the Religious Tract Society have generally been allowed to pass for I consider their works generally very safe'. She continues by saying that although she was faced with many further problems, a letter was not the best place to discuss them. She ends by trying to arrange a meeting so their discussion could continue and requesting that he pass on her progress report and sincere thanks to his cousin, Sir Robert Peel, for all his help in this venture.
