        Voyage a Buenos-Ayres et a Porto-Alégre, par la Banda-Oriental, les Missions D´Uruguay et la Province de Rio-Grande-Do-Sul

      Handsomely illustrated work on Rio Grande do Sul and Buenos Aires, ?full of interest, and is of value concerning its Brazilian section?. 1835. Havre. J. Morlent. In 4to (222 mm x 150 mm). 1 [frontispiece] + 2 ff. + 612 + 1 [blank] + 4 ff. + folding map & 3 lithographed plates + 1 [blank]. Contemporary half black chagrin, spine tooled and lettered in gilt, rubbed, still a very attractive binding. Very good copy overall, foxed ?particularly to plates- as always. First edition. The illustrations show a view of Buenos Aires from the Port, a gaucho enlacing an ox, a Porteña in daily clothes, a Porteña dressed for Church, and a folding map. The author travelled through Argentina and Brazil, time during which he participated of the commerce and industry of the region. ?Arsène Isabelle, a French enthusiast of travel literature, decided one day to journey around the world. He fitted himself out elaborately for the venture, and chose the Rio de la Plata as a starting place. (...) He arrived in March 1830 in Buenos Aires, which was in the throes of a revolution. The goods he had purchased for selling or trading purposes immediately proved to be absolutely unsuitable, and he sold everything at a great loss. Later, he started a candle factory, which he sold at the end of four years. He then resolved to start his travels, and journeyed across Argentina, Uruguay, and Rio Grande do Sul until 1838. Isabelle's book, in spite of having been written in the style of a literate businessman, is full of interest, and is of value concerning its Brazilian section. It is one of the few books of the time that describes journeys across Rio Grande do Sul. The author was a guest of Bompland (...). He also visited the German colony of São Leopoldo in Porto Alegre, and the missions? (Borba de Moraes). Isabelle (1806 ? 1879) was a French traveller and businessman; a lover of travel literature, he decided to travel around the world, beginning with Buenos Aires. His arrival at Buenos Aires was less than opportune, arriving at the time of a Revolution, causing him a loss of his capital. He then carried on to Uruguay and Brazil; where he spent most of his time in Rio Grande do Sul. Sabin, 35239. Borba de Moraes, I, 420 (?not easy to find today?).

        A Journal of Remarks and Observations as Kept by E[dward] G[eorge M[orse]. Remarks on board the Sarah Barque of London" [Journal of a Voyage to Seychelles, Madagascar, Mauritius, St Helena and Ascension Island on board the Barque "Sarah" out of London].

      Mostly at sea, on board the barque "Sarah" of London, April 1831-14 March 1833 (with additions to 1835). - 4to (19.5 x 16.5 cm). [191] ff. Including paste-downs and about 55 blanks. The journal with an engraved view as frontispiece , 15 full-page, 1 nearly full-page and 1 smaller manuscript maps and coastal profiles, plus a small engraved view mounted on 1 page. The lecture notes with a matching pair of engravings of a scull on and facing the title-page, and 27 pencil and/or ink anatomical drawings (including 2 full-page), some also with red. - Including: [Anatomical manuscript]. Morse, Edward George. Lecture Book [notes on anatomical lectures by Joseph Constantine Carpue].[London], November-December 1828. Contemporary sheepskin parchment. A manuscript ship's journal kept by Edward George Morse (Bromyard 1805?-Deal post 1850?), who no doubt served, among other functions, as the ship's surgeon. Morse reflects on Arabian navigation and Arabian explorers, including the deservedly famous Ibn Battuta. "The Arabians like the Chinese are said to have employed the compass to guide them through the trackless sands of the desert or to enable them at the hours of prayer to direct their faces with precision towards the city of Mecca and tomb of the prophet. In the sixteenth century moreover when the Portuguese first visited the Indian seas they found that the Arabians are the chief navigators of those seas [.]". - Morse made his earliest dated entries in April 1831 at the island Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and others at Madagascar and its surrounding islands from May to August 1831. Those around Madagascar indicate he was on the barque Manchester, but from at least 11 December 1831 to his arrival back in England on 14 March 1833 he was on the barque Sarah, a 600 ton ship sailing out of London. In it he spent a year in the Seychelles 11 December 1831-15 December 1832, including Make Island, Bird Island, Praslin Island and La Digue. - In very good condition. The binding is dirty and abraded, and the boards slightly warped, but it remains structurally sound. A fascinating and unusual ship's journal with numerous maps, kept in the unused leaves of the author's illustrated anatomical lecture notes from a few years earlier. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Histoire naturelle générale et particulière de tous les genres de coquilles univalves marines a l'état vivant et fossile, publiéee par monographies ou description et classification méthodique de toutes les espèces connues jusqu à ce jour, représentées en couleur avec la figure et l'anatomie d'un assez grand nombre de Mollusques nouvellement découverts

      Paris, privately published, 1835. Folio, 13 fine lithographic plates by Prêtre, finely hand-coloured. Original printed wrappers.* This large-paper publication was the start of what was to be a complete treatise on the marine gastropods of the world. Except for a part on Oliva, published in 1840 after a five year delay, this was all that was published. Later, Pierre Louis Duclos (d. 1853) contributed to the the series by Chenu, "Illustrations conchyliologiques ou description et figures de toutes les coquilles connues vivantes et fossiles..." which had an even grander scope but was not finished either. The first names of Duclos were a mystery for many years until the Californian malacologist Scott Jordan discovered them in a letter. His year of birth is still unknown. In accuracy of form and colour, the plates, by Prêtre, are among the best produced in the 19th century. A very good, complete set, almost without foxing (some light, marginal spotting to a few plates, some waterstaining to lower margin of a few plates, not affecting the figures. The wrappers are those of the genus Oliva, corrected in an old hand. Caprotti, p. 187; Nissen ZBI, 1170.

        Memoirs of the Life of the late John Mytton, Esq. of Halston, Shropshire... with notices of his hunting, shooting, driving, racing, eccentric and extravagant exploits. By Nimrod. With numerous illustrations by H. Alken. Reprinted from the New Sporting Magazine

      London: W. Spiers for Rudolph Ackermann, 1835. Octavo. (8 1/8 x 5 1/4 inches). 12 hand-coloured etched and aquatint plates, the design and etching by Henry Alken, the aquatint by E. Duncan. Original brown pebble- grained cloth, covers panelled in blind, the upper cover with central blocked gilt shaped panel containing the author's name and the title lettered in gilt, contained in a red morocco box modelled as a book by W. Root & Son of London, the spine of the box tooled in gilt with sporting vignette tools and lettered in gilt. First edition in book form, in fine untouched condition. It has been said of the author that he created the profession of gentleman hunting correspondent: he certainly managed to get paid a considerable sum to do what he loved (hunting) and then write about it. "He earned the respect of sportsmen everywhere not only for his skilful and fearless riding but also for the knowledge and judgment he displayed in his writings and for his unrivalled experience of the hunting world. As Nimrod he held a unique position in his day and left an imperishable memory in sporting history." (Norman Gash). The present work, first published in 1835, is the biography of John Mytton, an eccentric whose life-style eventually killed him, but who retained the public's affection to the extent that there was a huge turn out at his funeral. 'As master of foxhounds from 1818 to 1821 Jack Mytton, as he was known, hunted a vast country extending from Halston into Staffordshire and including what was later the country of the Albrighton hunt. Both then and later in the 1820s, when he hunted around Halston with new hounds and harriers, he flouted many established hunting conventions ... He was a man of great physical strength and foolhardy courage, with a strong taste for practical jokes. He was a splendid shot and a daring horseman, and there are numberless stories of his recklessness. He is said to have galloped at full speed over a rabbit warren just to see if his horse would fall, which it did and rolled over him. Again, for a wager he drove a tandem at night across country, surmounting a sunk fence 3 yards wide, a broad deep drain, and two stiff quickset hedges. He would sometimes strip to his shirt to follow wildfowl in hard weather, and is said once to have stripped naked to follow some duck over the ice. One night he even set fire to his nightshirt to frighten away the hiccups. Inordinately convivial, Mytton drank from four to six bottles of port a day, beginning in the morning while shaving, and he eventually lived in a "nearly constant state of intoxication"' (G. F. R. Barker and George C. Baugh in DNB). Mellon/Podeschi 147; Schwerdt I, p.38; Tooley 66.

        Oda al Jeneral Flores vencedor en Miñarica

      A splendid Ode, printed in Guayaquil, outstanding Americanum. 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.

        [The Aboriginal Portfolio]

      [Philadelphia: Lehman & Duval, 1835-1836]. Folio. (17 3/4 x 10 1/4 inches). Three letterpress advertisement leaves. 72 hand-coloured lithographed plates after Lewis by Lehman & Duval.Expertly bound to style in dark purple morocco over purple cloth covered boards, spine with raised bands, tooled in gilt and blind on either side of each band, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, marbled paper endpapers. First edition. Scarcer than McKenney and Hall's 'History of the Indian Tribes', Prince Maximilian's 'Reise in das Innere von Nord-America' or Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', Lewis' work records the dress of the Potawatomi, Winnebago, Shawnee, Sioux, Miami, Fox, Iowa and other tribes at treaties of Prairie du Chien, Fort Wayne, Fond du Lac and Green Bay. The Aboriginal Port Folio was published in Philadelphia by lithographers George Lehman and Peter S. Duval. It was issued in ten parts, with each part containing eight plates. Given the size of the undertaking the first nine parts were issued remarkably quickly, and appeared monthly between May 1835 and January 1836. The reason for this haste is probably that Lewis was aware that the imminent appearance of the first part of McKenney and Hall's History of the Indian Tribes of North America would adversely affect his subscriber-numbers. The evidence of the surviving copies suggests that his fears were well-founded as there are a number of sets made up from eight parts (with 64 plates), but very few with nine parts (72 plates) and ten-part sets with the full complement of a frontispiece/title-leaf and eighty plates are virtually never found: only the Siebert copy is listed as having sold at auction in the past twenty- five years, and there are only about a half dozen or so other recorded sets (the Siebert set, and one other, are the only two examples to include the title page). James O. Lewis was born in Philadelphia in 1799, moved west as a teenager, and had become an engraver and painter by the time he was living in St. Louis in 1820. In 1823 he moved to Detroit, and painted the first of his Indian portraits at the request of Gov. Lewis Cass of Michigan. He accompanied Cass on four Indian treaty expeditions in the Great Lakes region in 1825-27 and painted Indians during the course of each. Virtually all of the originals of the images published here were executed by Lewis in this period. Subsequently, many of the Lewis portraits were copied by Charles Bird King, and some appeared in the King versions in the McKenney and Hall portfolio. All of the Lewis originals were destroyed in the Smithsonian fire of 1865.

        [Manuscript]: A Tour Through Denmark, Sweden, Finland, to Petersburg from there through Prussia, Brunswick, Hanover and Holland in the Summer of 1835

      Octavo. Figured cloth with leather spine label ("Tour in the North of Europe 1835"). 233 closely and neatly written pages, mostly written on one side of each leaf (although it varies between recto and verso), bound with nicely engraved letterheads and illustrations of the various locales visited and described, some are hand colored, also with a folding hand-colored map of Denmark published by Thomas Kelly in London, 1834 (see below). All illustrations on unnumbered pages. Modest wear to the spine label, text block fallen slightly forward,and hinges partially split, still a nice, very good or better volume, with the interior fine.Authorial Signature of Capt. Kelly dated January 1835. Kelly, about whom we could find little, traveled with "my usual traveling companion Alderman Kelly" on the John Bull Steam Packet to Hamburg. This is followed by a thorough description of their activities and of each of the many localities they visited, with exceptionally detailed remarks on travel, the geography, architecture, population, the paintings and other art displayed in the churches, palaces, and museums, the hotels and their cuisine (or lack of it), weather, observations, and entertainments by the various British consuls.Capt. Kelly's companion, born Thomas Kelly (1772-1855), was according to at least one source, "a Dick Whittington character," a man who had risen from modest beginnings to be Lord Mayor of London and a respected Alderman. After his father's bankruptcy, in about 1788, Kelly was sent to work at Hoggs, the publisher and bookseller, on Paternoster Row after which he became a noted printer and publisher. He became Lord Mayor of London in 1836, the year following the trip described in this diary, with his official mayoral portrait painted by Mary Martha Pearson in 1837.A lovely travel diary filled with rich details and personal anecdotes. .

        A New Universal Atlas; comprising separate maps of all the principal empires, kingdoms & states throughout the world, and forming a distinct atlas of the United States carefully compiled from the best authorities extant by David H. Burr

      New York: D.S. Stone, [1835]. Folio. 15 x 12 1/4 inches. Engraved throughout, title, 1p. contents list, 63 hand-coloured engraved plates.Expertly bound to style in dark blue half morocco over contemporary cloth-covered board, original morocco lettering piece on upper cover, the flat spine divided into six compartments by single gilt fillets. A fine copy of this important work from one of the greatest early American cartographers. David H. Burr was one of the great American mapmakers of the 19th century. Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, he began his career leading a road survey through the southern counties of New York for the purpose of building a highway. This led to his being given, in 1829, the responsibility of revising Simeon De Witt's seminal New York State Map of 1804 (under De Witt's direction) to account for the considerable changes that had occurred over the last generation. This and the Atlas of the State of New York he published in 1829 established Burr's prominence in American cartography. The success of his State Atlas persuaded him to aim at a wider audience and publish a general atlas. Ristow states that Burr completed only eight of the 63 maps by 1832 when his involvement in the project was severely curtailed when he accepted the position of topographer for the United States Post Office Department. His maps were engraved by Thomas Illman and Edward Pillbrow and they took over the responsibility for finishing the work, although Burr retained an editorial role, and he was probably able to make use of his new position which gave him access to geographical material sent in from postmasters throughout the land. Cf. Phillips Atlases 1379a; cf. Ristow p.106.

        TRAVELS IN ETHIOPIA, Above the Second Cataract of the Nile; Exhibiting the State of That Country, and its Various Inhabitants, Under the Dominion of Mohammed Ali; and Illustrating the Antiquities, Arts, and History of the Ancient Kingdom of Meroe

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green & Longman, 1835. First edition. With a folding map and 54 lithographic plates including the frontispiece after Hoskins and Bondoni, 8 of which are double page, 4 are coloured chromolithos, and 2 are coloured by hand, also with numerous wood engravings within the text. 90 illustrations in total. 4to, in the original near black dark green cloth, bordered in blind on both covers and with pictorial gilt designs of Egyptian statuary on the top cover and spine, gilt lettered on the spine, edges untrimmed. xix, 367. A handsome copy of a book quite hard to find in collectable condition, well preserved and clean with just a bit of minor toning to the page edges, sometime very skillfully rebacked preserving all of the original decorated cloth spine, board edges with minor wear and mellowing, the folding map backed with linen for support, endpapers matching the originals renewed. Very scarce in the original cloth. SCARCE IN THE ORIGINAL CLOTH. A cornerstone work, Hoskins was the first European to describe and illustrate the antiquities of Meroe and one of only a tiny number of explores at the time to have ventured above the Second Cataract. He also spent a year in upper Egypt studying its monuments and journeyed extensively into the Nubian and Ethiopian deserts. It was Hoskins intent to prove that Meroe was the seat of learning from where the arts and sciences of Egypt, and then ultimately Greece and Rome, derived their origin. This account contains detailed studies on the arts and education in these regions. The fine lithographs in this volume were the first collection of illustrations of the region’s antiquities. American author Edgar Allan Poe was quite impressed with Hoskin’s handiwork. "Mr. Hoskins' Travels in Ethiopia above the Second Cataract of the Nile, are very highly spoken of. The work is a large quarto; and the expense of getting it up has been so great, as to leave its author no chance of remuneration. It contains ninety illustrations, by a Neapolitan artist of great eminence. The risk attending the publication of so valuable a book, will operate to deter any American bookseller from attempting it." The quality that so impressed Mr. Poe is evident, especially so in the impressive plates. It is not only a book of great historical and archaeological importance, but also a book of considerable beauty.

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.Forbes, 'Hawaiian National Bibliography', 949; Hawaii One Hundred, 50; Judd and Bell, 125.

Part of his scientific collection was lost but he managed to save an enormous quantity. The account of his expedition and the botanical surveys he published are comparable to the work of Humboldt" (Borba de Moraes). The atlas contains 16 remarkably accomplished lithographed plates, showing landscapes, customs, manners, and city views; the plates were made by Sedlmayr, Nepomuk and Bergmann after Poeppig´s own drawings. Amongst the plates, the ones from Talcahuano, Antuco volcano & the Perhuenches in a ?malon?, are of particular beauty and quality. Palau, 229613, not mentioning the folding map (probably never saw it, as he refers to the plates as ?maps?). Borba de Moraes, II, 681.

Lombardy was annexed to Sardinia in 1859 and the kingdom ceased to exist when the rest of its territory was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy in 1866. Interesting for its insights into the development of the Kingdom's legal system, Negri's digest reconciles pre-1815 laws with the post-1815 system. A few supplemental update volumes were published through 1858. OCLC locates 1 copy of the 1835 edition in North America (at Harvard Law School, which lacks the 1836 Appendice).

        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. 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.Not in Ferguson, but see no. 1674; not in Ingleton; not in Williams, 'Bibliography of Printed Maori to 1900', but see 12 and 13.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations

      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.

        Arboretum Et Fruticetum Britannicum; or, the trees and shrubs of Britain, native and foreign, hardy and half-hardy, pictorially and botanically delineated, and scientifically and popularly described; with their propagation, culture, management and uses in the arts, in useful and ornamental plantations, and in landscape-gardening; preceded by a historical and geographical outline of the trees and shrubs of temperate climates throughout the world

      London: printed for the Author, sold by Longman, Orme, Brown, Green & Longmans, the partially coloured and coloured copies by James Ridgway & Sons, [1835-]1838. 8 volumes, octavo. (8 3/4 x 5 5/8 inches). 412 hand- coloured engravings (20 double-page), 2546 uncoloured illustrations, extra- illustrated with four duplicate plates in vol.VII. Contemporary half morocco, spines gilt in six compartments with raised bands, the bands highlighted in gilt, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, top edge gilt. A fine set of the rare fully hand-coloured issue of this encyclopaedic work on all the trees and shrubs growing in Great Britain: a work which W.T. Thistleton-Dyer, the director of Kew, noted as being "indispensable to any student of the subject." This work by J.C. Loudon, "the most distinguished gardening author of the age" (Andrew Jackson Downing), was published in three forms: with the plates uncoloured, with only the botanical details on the plates coloured, and the present most expensive issue with all the plates completely hand-coloured. It was issued in sixty-three monthly parts from January 1835 to July 1838, although the preparations for the work had been started as early as 1830. "The book begins with a `general outline of history and geography' before starting on an exhaustive account of each group of trees and shrubs, complete with a full description of each species and variety, its history in Britain, and even notes on remarkable examples growing in individual gardens. `Portraits of trees in their young and mature state', showing leaves, twigs, fruits, and the outline of leafless ... trees are a special feature of the book." (Oak Spring Sylva). All the images were drawn from life, many from examples in the garden at Syon House, one of the homes of the Duke of Northumberland (to whom the work is dedicated). "In spite of its quality the book was a financial disaster for Loudon, as his wife explained in the account of his life she published in 1845: `Having resolved that all the drawings for the Arboretum should be made from nature, he had seven artists constantly employed, and he was frequently in the open air with them from his breakfast at seven in the morning till he came home to dinner at eight in the evening ... After dinner he resumed the literary part of the work, and continued writing ... till two or three in the morning. His constitution was naturally very strong, but it was impossible for any human to bear for any lengthened period the fatigue he underwent ... In addition to the large sums in ready money he paid to the artists and other persons employed during the progress of the Arboretum, he found at its conclusion that he owed ten thousand pounds to the printer, the stationer, and the wood-engraver ... His creditors, however, did not press him for their money ... consenting to wait until they were paid by sale'" (op.cit.) Bradley Bibliography I, p.293; cf. Bridson Printmaking in the Service of Botany p.113; Oak Spring Sylva 11.

        Selections from the Edinburgh Review, Comprising The Best Articles in That Journal, From Its Commencement to the Present Time. With A Preliminary Dissertation and Explanatory Notes. (6 volumes)

      Paris: Baurdry's European Library, 1835. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Book. 1835 to 1836, 6 volumes. The Edinburgh Review, begun in 1802 (and continuing until 1929), was a leading political and literary quarterly especially in its earlier decades, and a beacon of "liberalism" as the word was traditionally understood, and thus generally advocating laissez-faire policies, championing liberties, and supporting of free trade and less governmental tampering with the marketplace. Its stable of contributors is perhaps unrivaled among such publications, then or now, and indeed, it is virtually inconceivable that any one publication would draw upon so many thinkers whose ideas would have an indelible and lasting effect on society. As an anthology of the "best of" up until the publication date, the six volumes are organized around topics, with generally several pieces, some of them extended, on each of the covered larger themes. The first volume begins with a "Preliminary Dissertation on The Progress of Periodical Literature: and The History, Principles and Tendency of The Edinburgh Review", which is a summary of the review and what it stood for, as well as a synopsis of its highlights. Following comes the thematic sections. Starting with volume one, these are: Poetry and the Drama, Character of Distinguished Poets, Sketches of the Old English Dramatists, Character of Eminent Divines, Philosophers, Statesmen, Orators, Historians, Novelists and Critics; Miscellaneous Literature (German, Historical Writing, etc.); Metaphysics and Moral Science; Education; Political History; Foreign Politics; Miscellaneous Politics; Civil and Religious Liberty; Reform in Parliament, Church Reform, Liberty of the Press, West India Slavery; Political Economy -- Laws and Jurisprudence, Ireland. With all these broad categories, there are several, or even many, shorter pieces by different authors. There is scattered foxing, sometimes heavy. Most of the interior is clean, however. Modern green half calf over contemporary marbled boards. Some edge wear to the boards. Marbled endpapers. Overall a very good copy.

        A Summer Ramble in Syria, with a Tartar Trip from Aleppo to Stamboul

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1835. 2 volumes octavo (213 × 132 mm) Contemporary maroon morocco, title gilt directly to the spine, flat bands with thistle tools gilt, boards with central lozenge device composed of drawer-handle and strapwork tools within an arabesqued panel in blind, all edges gilt, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. Lithographed frontispiece to each. A little rubbed at the extremities, some foxing of the prelims., light browning, later collector's bookplate to the front pastedowns, a very good set. First edition. An uncommon and entertaining narrative, commended by the reviewer of The London & Westminster Review as of "more than ordinary merit", Monro's "descriptions are spirited and graphic; his style is lively and idiomatic, devoid of stiffness or affectation" and "without making any pretensions to the higher qualities required of a traveller … [he] possesses qualifications of another kind, in a degree not possessed by the majority of travellers; an adventurous and determined spirit, and great capability of enduring fatigue and privation" (Volume XXV, June and July, 1836). Monro had graduated with a BA from University College, Oxford, in 1823, MA, 1826; ordained in 1825, and in 1826 appointed curate of Stokesley, Diocese of York, his contemporary reviewer remarking that he was proof that "the race of hard-riding parsons" was not extinct in England. The Egyptian leg of Monro's journey was written up by his travelling companion James Augustus St. John - an odd fringe figure in the worlds of London radicalism and orientalism - in his Egypt and Mohammed Ali (1834), which is dedicated to Monro. The plates show a pilgrim encampment on the banks of the Jordan, and Monro's bivouac on Mount Lebanon, "previous to passing the snow". This copy inscribed on both free endpapers in 1843 as an Eton leaving present from Thomas Lister, 3rd Baron Ribblesdale to his friend Henry John Reynolds-Moreton, 3rd Earl of Ducie, as Lord Moreton. A desirable nineteenth-century account of the region, in an attractive example of an Eton gift binding.

        The State and Position of Western Australia

      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).Ferguson, 1973.
