        Oration of the life and character of Gilbert Motier De Lafayette...In the house of Representatives

      Washington: Gales and Seaton, 1835 Contemporary straight grain morocco, rebacked. An excellent copy inscribed to David Potts Jun from John Quincy Adams on a presentation slip inserted before the title page, and with the ownership signature of Ralph R. Ritzman on the fly-leaf. FIRST EDITION, INSCRIBED, of Adams' biography of Gilbert du Motier (1757-1834), until June of 1790 the marquis de La Fayette. Lafayette was a French military officer who participated in both the American and French revolutions. As a result of his services, he was twice granted Honorary Citizenship of the United States, once in 1824 and again, posthumously, in 2002, one of only six persons to be so honored.& & Books inscribed by Adams (1767-1848) are quite scarce. It is probable that the presentation leaf was placed into the book at the original binding, as it contains heavy offsetting from the title. Potts (ca. 1794-1863) was elected to the State House of Representatives of Pennsylvania before being elected as an Anti-Masonic candidate to the twenty-second through twenty-fifth Congresses (March 4, 1831-March 3, 1839).&

        PAMPHLETS FOR THE PEOPLE. [A Thematic collection of 31 scarce Pamphlets from the 1830s, written and edited by the politically radical J.A. Roebuck, M.P. variously for Bath and for Sheffield. With a further 4 of a similar nature.]

      Charles Ely 1835 - A very scarce FINE collection of 31 of Roebuck's famous political tracts or pamphlets ('Vol.1' usually only has c.20 pamphlets), with 4 additional, politically similar, pamphlets by other authors (one printed in Bath). Roebuck's pamphlets contain more than one article (the title is that of the first) and also contain pieces by Francis Place, Thomas Falconer, H. S. Chapman, William Allen and Robert Hammersley. Issued weekly at 1½d. and 2d., the punitive 4d. stamp-duty on periodicals/newspapers at the time was avoided by Roebuck by making each issue complete in itself. A few pamphlets rail against this duty as a tax on knowledge and one pamphlet (no.3) denounces all newspapers and all those associated with them! It lead to a Challenge and duel with the editor of the Morning Chronicle in 1835 (neither were injured). Many more 'challenges' and much uproar was caused by what DNB calls Roebuck's 'attacking vehemence' and 'acerbity and indiscriminate invective, habitually employed'; epithets that earned him the parliamentary nickname "Tear 'em". As MP for Bath, variously between 1832 and 1847, and similarly for Sheffield, 1849-1879, Roebuck effectively brought down Lord Aberdeen's government when he moved for a committee to inquire into the conduct of the Crimean War. There are 5 pamphlet contributions by Francis Place. Roebuck was born in Madras and educated in Canada; he was a follower of Bentham and a friend of John Stuart Mill. He supported the South in the American Civil War. CONSISTING: 1. On the Means of Conveying Information to People; 2. A Letter to the Electors of Bath on the Reform Bill; 3.

        Oda al Jeneral Flores vencedor en Miñarica

      Guayaquil 1835 - A splendid Ode, printed in Guayaquil. 1835. Guayaquil. Imprenta de M. I. Murillo. In 4to (253 mm x 170 mm). 1 [blank] + 8. Modern folder, front board lettered in gilt. A fine copy, with a few foxing spots as expected, but generally very good. Apparently the first edition. A remarkably rare Ode to General Flores, printed in one of the less prolific South American printing houses, that of Guayaquil. Juan José de Flores was the first President of Ecuador; in January 1835 he triumphed at the battle of Miñarica, allowing to extend his position as leader of the young country. The author of the Ode was a colleague of Flores, and an Ecuadorian patriot; he is renowned as the author of ¿La victoria de Junín Canto a Bolivar¿; a most famous poem on the revolutionary wars occurred in South America. The printer, Manuel Ignacio Murillo (1802 ¿ 1884) was born in the same city he would found his press later on and could well be considered the most important printer and newspaper Director of Guayaquil of the first half of the 19th century, having worked with ¿El Patriota de Guayaquil¿ (first newspaper of the now-free Province), ¿El Republicano del Sur¿, ¿El Chispero¿ and ¿La Aurora¿. The highlight of his career was printing the ¿Canto a Junín¿, much similar to the ¿Oda al Jeneral Flores vencedor en Miñarica¿ offered here. Sabin, 56686. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

ANNO DI NASCITA: 1835 caEDIZIONE: Prima edizioneDESCRIZIONE: 2 volumi in ottavo grande (cm. 24 x 16 ca), legatura coeva in pergamena con quattro nervi, titoli manoscritti nei due scomparti al dorso, ex libris della Bibliotheque de Villeneuve-Butel incollati ai contropiatti anteriori, occhiello, frontespizio illustrato.

Tomo secondo pagine: [8] + 406 26 tavole fuori testo con incisioni in nero su acciaio, tutte protette da velina, la prima posta in antiporta come frontespizio illustrato. Le 52 tavole sono tutte presenti. COMMENTO: Questi due bellissimi volumi di viaggio si differenziano da tutte le altre opere simili pubblicate nello stesso periodo, perché il racconto del viaggio, fatto da un anonimo Artista, non descrive solo le bellezze paesaggistiche e i monumenti celebri incontrati lungo il tragitto, ma soprattutto la storia che pervade i luoghi, lo spirito religioso delle popolazioni, i colori e gli odori di città celebri come Venezia, il colore e l'odore dei deli, della terra, dei mari, il suono delle campane e soprattutto la gente semplice, i contadini, i pescatori, il popolo minuto. L'autore di queste passeggiate, poiché i resoconti di viaggio anonimi e privi di interesse sono firmati quasi su ogni pagina, proprio per questo motivo desidera invece restare anonimo. Le bellissime incisioni che arrichiscono i due volumi sono tratte dai disegni di due importanti paesaggisti inglesi quali Clarkson Stanfield (1793-1867) e William Turner (1775 -1851); in quasi tutte le tavole sono raffigurate persone del popolo intente alle loro attività. Tra le incantevoli incisioni raffiguranti località tedesche situate sulle sponde del fiume Reno, dell'Olanda e del Belgio contenute nel volume primo, e del Tirolo, della Svizzera e dell'Italia del Nord contenute nel volume secondo, segnaliamo: L'Isola Bella, al frontespizio illustrato - volume secondo Domodossola, alla p. 27 - volume secondo II Lago Maggiore, alla p. 48 - volume secondo Angera, alla p. 65 - volume secondo Sesto Calende, alla p. 66 - volume secondo II Duomo di Milano, alla p. 80 - volume secondo Verona, alla p. 112 - volume secondo Murano, alla p. 133 - volume secondo Mazzorbo, alla p. 134 - volume secondo Venezia, alle pp. 131, 139, 142, 168, 170, 172 - volume secondo Rovereto, alla p. 190 - volume secondo Trento, alla p. 194 - volume secondo Le schede dei due volumi sono presenti in ICCU.

        An appeal on the subject of slavery: addressed to the members of the New England and New Hampshire conferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church: Together with a Defence of said Appeal, in which is shown the sin of holding property in man

      Published by David H. Ela, Boston 1835 - 48 pp. Modern wrappers. Title-page and following leaf with small abrasion on outer margins An important, and extraordinarily early record of the dispute between Abolitionists and their slave-holding brethren within the Methodist Episcopal Church, concerning the ownership of slaves by parishioners and ministers alike. The authors of the work, supported by abundant philosophical, legal, and Biblical references sources, assert that "every American citizen who retains a fellow being in bondage as a piece of PROPERTY, and takes the price of his labor without his consent, is guilty of a crime which cannot be reconciled with the spirit of the Christian religion; and it is the more criminal for a professing Christian or Christian minister to do this, because they thus afford their support to an unjust and violent system of oppressions." Chapters include: "Is the Methodist Episcopal Church as much opposed to Slavery now, as Wesley and the Methodist Preachers were fifty years ago?" (i.e. 1785); "Wesley's Definition of Slavery"; "Wesley's Account of Some Evils of Slavery"; "Wesley defined Sin against God, the same as we do"; "Wesley and Blackstone prove Slave-holding to be a Sin, by a course of reasoning which has been, and never can be, refuted." * REFERENCE: Dumond 19.

        Mémoire sur la Dispersion de la Lumière. [As published in Nouveaux Exercices de Mathématiques].

      J.G. Calve 1835-36., Prague - The memoire in which Cauchy explained the dispersion of light from the undulatory theory of light, and first derived the equation, named after him, relating the refractive index and wavelength of light for a particular transparent material. This memoire was a continuation of his earlier work, of the same title published in Paris in 1830, and was issued as eight parts of his periodical ‘Nouveaux Exercices de Mathématiques’ (see below). "The dispersion of light when passing through matter without getting fully absorbed, i.e., the variation of the refractive index n (which denotes the ratio of the velocity of light in vacuo to the velocity of light in matter) with the wavelength, always played an important role in the history of optics since the times of Isaac Newton. After the undulatory theory of light won over the corpuscular view in the beginning of the nineteenth century, Augustin Louis Cauchy proposed an explanation of the dispersion phenomenon, based on the assumption that matter consisted of molecules having finite distances from each other (Cauchy 1836). According to his theory the refractive index n increased with decreasing wavelength ? of the light - n was approximately proportional to ?-2 - in general agreement with the data on what was later called ‘normal’ dispersion." (Mehra & Rechenberg: The Historical Development of Quantum Theory, Vol. 1, Part 2, p. 630). "The first livraisons appeared successively during the year 1835, at Prague. The first is a repetition of the ‘Memoire sur la dispersion’ [Paris, 1830]. In the second, (besides other discussions) is contained the actual deduction of the formula for dispersion. In September, 1835, [Cauchy] circulated a lithographed memoire on interpolation, (a translation of which appears in the Journal of Science, Vol. VIII. p. 459) in which he gives a calculation by that method, of Fraunhofer’s indices for one kind of flint glass, but without any theoretical explanation. In the ‘Nouveaux Exercices’ for 1836, he gives in detail his most elaborate and exact method of computation, and applies it with perfect success to all the indices determined by Fraunhofer" (Baden Powell: A General and Elementary View of the Undulatory Theory, as Applied to the Dispersion of Light, London, Parker, 1851, pp. XLVI-XLVII). "In 1826 Cauchy began to publish his ‘Exercises de Mathematiques’, which was essentially a mathematical periodical consisting entirely of papers written by himself; it appeared at approximately monthly intervals until 1830. He used similar series as vehicles for his publications at later stages of his career; the ‘Nouveaux Exercices de Mathématiques’ were published in Prague in 1835-36 and the ‘Exercices d'Analyse et de Physique Mathématique’ appeared at intervals from 1840 to 1853." (Smithies: Cauchy and the Creation of Complex Function Theory, p.113). 4to: 259 x 202 mm. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, marbled end papers, engraved bookplate to front paste down, hinges worn but still strong, head and tale of spine professionally repaired, in all a very nice copy.

There are 6 double page plates and 35 woodcuts in the text. The 2 leaves coloured by hand have 2 plates each and are exquisite. Some of the b/w lithographs have 2 plates as well. The chromolithographs present are the earliest in an English printed book ( ). Largely uncut, and untrimmed; various pages unopened, original publisher's blind-stamped, gilded, cloth binding, bumped at corners, light soiling, skillfully rebacked with the original spine laid down with loss of approximately the lower 20 per cent, original free-end-pages preserved. Internally very clean, light discoloration of the edges of exposed pagesand occasionally some very light foxing to a few of the plates, usually toward the edges. Folding map, which shows the course of the Nile in this part of Africa, has a small tear at the center fold. A nice copy of an important source on Egyptology, the Soudan (Nubia), Ethiopia, and Meroe. This scarce book is of primary importance as a source of knowledge for Egypt, Nubia and Meroe. The plates depict landscapes, people, plants, ruins, etc. There are plans of the sites visited and much of it has disappeared. Moreover it is an important book in the history of English bookprinting as it contains 4 magnificent colour litho's, being the first chromolithographs ever printed in the United Kingdom. In our copy the Nubians are depicted with blue skullcaps, making it a superior copy. A mesmerizing book, only seldom found in its original publisher's binding.

The author I willing to hope, from her own recent recollection of the taste of persons at that period of life, that the form of Dialogue, though not very usual in such works, will not make it unpleasing to them, if she has succeeded in the endeavour to render the story interesting, and the language familiar.To call attention to the principles it has been her wish to instil, is unnecessary; since, if they are not apparent to the young reader, her attempt must have failed so entirely, as to be undeserving of any notice whatever.î[Gumuchian 3822] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Gallus Varius (Forked-tail Jungle Fowl)

      Daniel Giraud Elliot (1835-1915) was an American zoologist and a founding member of the American Museum of Natural History in New York and the American Ornithologists? Union. Elliot was a noted figure in the nineteenth century scientific community for his talent as an artist and his collection of ornithological specimens, thought to be the of the finest in private collection.Elliot traveled throughout Europe and Asia studying and collecting. Through his own financing, Elliot was able to produce numerous comprehensive color-plate books on birds and mammals, without having to concede size or quality. Considered the highest achievement of Elliot?s career, he published two volumes of ?A Monograph of the Phasianidae? from 1870-1872.The monograph was issued in six parts and contains over 80 extraordinarily detailed and beautiful plates. The superb plates from Daniel Giraud Elliot?s ?A Monograph of the Phasianidae or Family of Pheasants? display the outstanding attention to detail and skill of the author as well as the artists Joseph Wolf, Joseph Smith and John Gerrard Keulemans, whom worked with Elliot on many of the prints.This lithograph, Gallus Varius, measures 23.25? x 18.5?, and is in mint condition. Commonly called Forked-tailed, Javan or Green Jungle-fowl, these birds are expertly hand-colored, the male in vibrant shades extending from head to tail-feather. The wattle and crown of the male is has lighter shades of pink, green, yellow and blue, whereas his body is rich with color and patterns in green, blue, yellow and orange with a dark black underside. The female Javan Junglefowl is more plain in color but has intricate patterns throughout her feathers in shades of black, brown and white. Their poses and the lush background add to this dynamic lithograph.
