        PRIVATE JOURNAL OF A CRUIZE [sic] IN THE U.S. SCHOONER ENTERPRISE LT. A.S. CAMPBELL ESQ. COMMANDING IN THE EAST INDIAS & CHINA SEAS [manuscript title]

      [Various places at sea and in port in the Indian Ocean, Gulf of Siam, and China Sea, as described below]. July 12, 1835 - April 7, 1836.. [118]pp. manuscript on 12 1/2 x 8-inch sheets of paper. A total of some 32,500 words. Includes a pen and ink sketch of "The Town of Zanzibar from the Harbour," and of the island of "Pemba." Plus a fragment of a sheet of paper containing a few caricatures and a sketch of the U.S.S. Peacock. Title-leaf and the following text leaf with a long repaired tear; some slight edge wear or staining to the leaves. In very good condition. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. An absolutely outstanding American naval manuscript, this is the journal kept by Midshipman Henry Cadwalader for the first nine months of his voyage as part of the United States Navy's East India Squadron. Cadwalader sailed on the U.S.S. Peacock, the flagship of the squadron, and on the U.S.S. Enterprise, the squadron's supporting schooner. The journal is rich with his observations on the places he visited, including Zanzibar, Bombay, Ceylon, and Batavia. Though he went to sea as a teenager, Cadwalader seems to have been well educated (he was a scion of a notable Philadelphia family), and his journal is well written and lively, filled with keen observations of his life on board ship and of the various places he visited on his voyage. The journal gives an excellent picture of life at sea for a young man in the 1830s. Cadwalader is reflective and introspective, yet keenly observant of his surroundings and of the character of the men on his ship and of the natives and British colonizers he encountered. His journal is also an exceptionally early account by an American of Zanzibar, India, and Indonesia. In all, it is one of the most interesting, textured, and detailed American naval manuscripts we have ever encountered. Henry Cadwalader (1817-44) came from a distinguished military lineage: his grandfather, Brig. Gen. John Cadwalader, commanded Pennsylvania troops in several important Revolutionary War battles, and his father, Major General Thomas Cadwalader, commanded a Pennsylvania militia brigade during the War of 1812. Henry Cadwalader was appointed a midshipman in the U.S. Navy on December 13, 1832 and became a "passed midshipman" on July 8, 1839. At the time he undertook this voyage to the East, he was only in his late teens, and very early in his naval career. The Enterprise and the Peacock sailed on an expedition to the Indian Ocean and East Indies for the purpose of obtaining information and negotiating treaties of friendship and commerce with Eastern powers. Among the places the ships visited over the course of the three- year cruise were Muscat, Oman, Ceylon, India, Java, Siam, Cochin, China, the Bonin Islands, Hawaii, Mexico, and California. Cadwalader began his voyage in the Enterprise, but transferred to the commanding ship of the expedition, the Peacock, at Bombay. Cadwalader's journal covers the first nine months of the voyage, from New York to Bangkok. The journal begins with a manuscript titlepage which includes a list of the officers on board the Enterprise, with Henry Cadwalader listed as one of four midshipmen. The text opens with an entry noting that the Peacock and Enterprise departed Rio de Janeiro bound for the East Indies on Sunday, July 12, 1835. Cadwalader writes that he expects to be transferred at some point to the Peacock, and spends the opening passages of his journal describing life on board the schooner. These initial entries give an excellent impression of life on board an American naval vessel for a teenaged midshipman, describing Cadwalader's daily duties, the drudgery, hazards, and joys of life on board ship, and conveying a youthful sense of wonder at the world. For example, in an entry for August 8, he writes: "Had the morning watch - scrubbed decks & paint work, &c. At 7 bells drank a cup of coffee with [Midshipman] Forbes sitting on the Bitts. Came below at about quarter of 9, washed & eat breakfast, mended my clothes, stowed my locker & read a little Shakespeare. Did not feel well - a swelling under my throat. I had caught cold from sleeping in a wet hammock." Cadwalader's illness became so bad that he had to be treated by the First Lieutenant, and he writes: "I am as weak as a cat, can hardly do anything for myself, and my face is so extremely altered that no one would recognize me - the skin is all coming off so that I shall have an entire new & clear covering to my face...The Dr. makes me drink a bottle of porter every day and I live in the wardroom." Along with Shakespeare Cadwalader also notes that he read GIL BLAS in the original French, "for it improves one in the French language, which is decidedly the most useful in the world." Cadwalader is often critical of the command style of the captain of the Enterprise, A.S. Campbell. In an entry of August 25, 1835 he writes: "The Capt. amuses me more than anyone else. He stays on deck all day doing nothing but fidget about. He looks as if he wanted to quarrel with someone & had nobody to quarrel with. He has nothing to employ his mind & therefore is miserable or rather nervous. A man without resources to pass his time certainly is unfriendly to himself, for he must have what is called the 'Blue- devils' or a 'what shall I do with myself to day' to pass my time." Cadwalader remarks several times in his journal on Captain Campbell's drinking, and the way it affected his command. Life on board ship is a constant backdrop of Cadwalader's journals, and his depictions of shipboard activities, chores, personalities, and conflicts are one of the great merits of his writing. For example, in his entry of September 4 (fifty-five days out from Rio), he writes: "Kept the middle watch - a most beautiful night almost as light as day, but my mouth was so parched & dry for want of water that I could not speak the truth. Our allowance now is 1/2 a gallon a day, man & officers and in a warm climate it is not enough & we had used all our water during the day...there is a great deal of work going on, at this time on board, painting & blacksmithing work, which they are anxious to get done before going into port. All that we are in want of now is water...it is getting horribly warm but it will be much more so before this cruize is over." On September 30 he writes: "Forbes [a midshipman] has applyed [sic] to leave the Birth deck, as he has been on it now upwards of 2 months & I think it is more than probable that I will have to relieve him there - however I have not heard anything about it. Yesterday we had one of the hams for dinner that we got in Zanzibar from the English brig - put up in tin it was spoiled & stunk most horridly. Mr. Page [First Lieutenant] made a request - 'that we would be much obliged if we would have it thrown overboard' - but Mr. Forbes thought that it was very fine & he ate a great deal of it." In his journal entry for September 11, 12, and 13, Cadwalader notes that they saw land and thought that it was Zanzibar. In fact it was the island of Pemba, not far from Zanzibar off the east coast of Africa. Cadwalader includes a nice pen and ink view of the island in the journal. By the afternoon of September 14 they were near the island of Zanzibar, and he includes a sketch of the "town of Zanzibar from the harbor." He also describes a visit to the Enterprise by a representative of the prince of Zanzibar: "In a little while the Capt. of the port came alongside in a large 76 oared boat pulled by Mahomedan riggers with turbans on their heads. We were surprised when he came over the gangway to hear him say in very good English indeed 'how do you do, I am very glad to see you' & shook hands. He took a letter from his pocket for the Capt. from Com. Kennedy. The Peacock had sailed here 5 days ago from Muskat [i.e. Muscat] & had a passage of 54 days from Rio, 10 days less than we had. She left orders for us to get in water & provisions & proceed immediately to Bombay. The Capt. asked him down in to the cabin and he sat there for more than an hour. He was a fine looking man, about 6 feet very dark complexion, fine large eyes, and a large black beard. He was dressed as all Mahomedans of his rank are, with a fine turban of different coloured silk, an outer robe of very fine snuff coloured cloth and his under garments were of the finest white [?] edged around with lace. His feet were bare but were protected from the ground by a pair of wooden sandals that had a leather strap up between his toes. He wore spectacles & altogether he was a very fine looking man. Another peculiarity was his teeth which were very large and fine, and his gums of bright vermilion, but his teeth were jet black!!! evidently died [sic] so." In all, the Enterprise spent nearly a week at Zanzibar, and Cadwalader devotes several pages in his journal to describing his experiences there, including descriptions of walks he made around the island. In his entry for September 17 he describes a visit to the royal palace to meet the prince of Zanzibar: "On the morning of the 17th I accompanied Capt. Campbell, Mr. Sharpe, the Dr. & Mr. Waldron to see the young prince. We fired a salute of 17 guns, which was returned by the frigate of the town...At the door we were met by the young prince & about 60 or 70 attendants with their scimitars...We were all of us presented to him. He was distinguished enough & led the way proudly towards the Audience Chambers. This was a large apartment, very high ceiling, the walls white, there was little furniture in the room, nothing but a large chandelier in the centre & the chairs set all round. The floor was white marble. I was as much disappointed in the appearance of the young Prince as I was in the Palace. I expected to see something magnificent but it is a very common looking building outside, with a flag staff in front of it, the national flag flying, which is a field of red, the same as the Red Rovers. The prince is a very common looking boy, only 17 years old, large sleepy eyes, very thin and not at all good looking. He was dressed well but not as I expected to see a prince. His turban was neatly tied & his clothes rather finer than those worn by the generality of Arabs. He wore a scimitar of beautiful workmanship mounted with gold & embossed work on it...The young prince said that he would always remember the Commodore Kennedy with pleasure & do everything in his power for the Americans whenever they came in here. After sitting about 20 minutes a black eunuch came in with another slave & handed us coffee in gold cup...." The Enterprise departed Zanzibar on September 20, bound for Bombay, where they arrived in mid-October. Cadwalader reports that the Enterprise was the first American man-of-war ever to visit Bombay, having arrived there ahead of the Peacock. There were several American trading vessels in port and dry docks including the ship Shepherdess of Salem, which had brought ice along with other goods. The Enterprise elicited a good deal of curiosity from the residents of Bombay, many of whom came aboard the ship. Of Bombay, Cadwalader writes: "I like the place very much indeed. The harbour is a fine one & a good deal of fun on shore, the people are very hospitable...I had an opportunity of seeing the dry docks, they are large enough to hold 5 line of battle ships. They are exactly on the same plan as the one in Norfolk, but not half so fine in workmanship, nor so well worth seeing. They belong to the E[ast] I[ndia] Company." He includes a description of a dinner hosted on shore by English officers and remarks on the hospitality and lavishness of the affair. Cadwalader also reports that two members of the Enterprise crew deserted the ship while at Bombay, and that he was part of a party sent after them. The men were eventually caught, court-martialed, and whipped as punishment. On September 23 the Peacock arrived in Bombay, the first time they had seen the flagship since they departed Rio de Janeiro. The Peacock had been damaged when it ran aground on a small island some 250 miles from Muscat, and it was necessary to pull it in for repairs while in Bombay. Cadwalader took the opportunity to apply for a transfer to the Peacock, and visited the town several times during their long stay: "I have been on shore frequently. It is delightful in the afternoon to take a walk on the esplanade and see the officers riding about. The town is walled and there are sentries at all the gates. There is two regiments of native soldiers here under pay of the company. After dark you get into one of the Buggies outside of the gates & go out north to Dungaree green. The roads are beautiful & they drive very fast. There is all kinds of 'casts' [sic] here and all kinds of religions, fire worshippers, 'sons of Hafed.' You may see them coming down to the water in the morning in droves to wash their faces, feet & hands. They dare not take or eat anything that is touched by a Christian or they lost their 'cast.' There is a fellow on shore now who is in this way. He is doomed to hold a flower pot in his hand for 30 years - it is his God - he has been so for 15 years & has as much longer to stay. His nails on his fingers are about a foot long and curled round, and he holds the pot out at arms length. When the flower dies he is to be killed. There is another one that is hung up by a silver hook from his 3rd rib for a certain length of time, I do not remember how many years." On November 4, Cadwalader received his orders to transfer to the Peacock, "the flagship of Commodore E.P. Kennedy, commanding the East India & Asiatic squadron (consisting of this ship & the Schooner)." Finally repaired, the Peacock, with Cadwalader on board, departed Bombay in early December, heading south and east. Over the next several weeks the ship visited a number of places, including the island of "Elephanta," where Cadwalader and his mates toured the famed caves with their Hindu statuary, and the island of Ceylon, where they docked for nearly two weeks at the harbor of Colombo. The Peacock stayed there longer than expected because, according to Cadwalader, Commodore Kennedy found the harbor so hospitable. While anchored there they were visited by local vendors selling trinkets: "In a very short time after anchoring the ship was filled with peddlers having stones, shells, rings, jewels, boxes, & jewelry of almost every description. There are no very pretty things among them & all of very bad workmanship. At first they ask a most enormous price but you can generally get anything for 6 or 8 times less than the first price. Here I bought 2 small models of boats of this country." Cadwalader also includes a description of the town of Colombo, including a visit to a very large cinnamon plantation owned by Mr. Laird, the "fort adjutant," and describes several parties thrown for the Americans by the English residents. From Ceylon they sailed for Batavia, (now called Jakarta) on the island of Java, arriving there on January 12. The Peacock and Enterprise remained in Batavia for just over a month, and Cadwalader took the opportunity to make several visits to the town and surrounding country, giving long descriptions of the people and places he saw there. He made the acquaintance of the American consul at Batavia, and remarks on the Dutch presence in the colony: "Batavia is a regular Dutch place & the natives have adopted the Dutch costume. Many of the houses look like those old buildings you see in New York & Albany. Canals running in every direction about the town. Some of the country houses are very pretty & shaded with green trees & gravel walks & are very neat & cool. The grand square & the palace for the Governor or Resident is a very large stone building facing on the square in the centre of which is a monument with a lion & his foot resting on a ball. What the monument meant to represent I could not find out...We saw a detachment of a Dutch convict Regiment, they were dressed in a green frock coat with yellow worsted belts and a heavy black cap with a large black feather...The uniform was very warm looking & not at all suited to a climate like this. The men were all transported from their own country on account of some rascalities committed there and sentenced to serve so many years in this Regiment, some for life." The Peacock departed Batavia and sailed north for the China Sea, arriving in the Gulf of Siam in late March. On April 6, Cadwalader boarded a junk for the passage up the river to Bangkok. The journal concludes on April 7, 1836 with Cadwalader having arrived in Bangkok. An absolutely outstanding American naval journal kept by a young midshipman, with fine details of life aboard ship and giving excellent observations of several ports in the Indian Ocean and the East Indies.

        Historic account of the politics relating to the 1836 elections between Martin Van Buren, William Henry Harrison, and Hugh White as viewed from the Whig party of Ohio in 1835 through the letters of a former State Senator to the US Senator, Thomas Ewing

      Archive of four autograph letters signed by “C. Hammond” dated Feb 1, Feb 8, March 30 & Dec 16, 1835. All letters are in fine condition, with the exception that the letter dated March 30 the signature has been clipped. They are written by Charles Hammond to Senator Thomas Ewing regarding political matters. The four letters are all politically charged letters regarding the elections of 1836, and show the process of the people in power in Ohio were trying to accomplish. They read in full: (1) Cincinnati, Feb 1, 1835 / Dear Ewing, The Harrison meeting of yesterday was a failure. There was but about 200 present, and there was no enthusiasm. The day was cold, but not otherwise disagreeable. The weather was, however, urged as the reason of so few being present. The proceedings were all prepared. A committee to … went out as usual and retuned. The report was brief, tame, and harmless as to others. The speeches were made. The meeting was organized about three in the afternoon, and adjourned in less than an hour. I attended for the purpose of observation and I noted very soon what was the object of the most active. You will understand it in a moment when I say they are Webster men more than two thirds of them. None of them appear as Presidents, Vice Presidents, or Secretaries. But they were the motion makers – Wm. Green, Timothy Walker, Lawyer Hodges etc. There is another thing a little remarkable. The meeting is held forth as that of the people, the common working people, the hurra boys. The conspicuous actors on the spot affect to be the tip top of our literary gentlemen. Mr. Hall of the Western Monthly, Benjamin Drake, John P. Foote of the deceased Literary Gazette etc. It was amusing to note that gentlemen talking in the name of the people about politicians and political managers. Whilst they were playing their game with hands so open that if you did not shut your eyes you would see all their cards. I have not been able to discern any ardent feeling for the general here. The administration leaders of the place give him no preference over other opposition candidates. None have moved for him that did not go with us last October. His nomination only serves to increase distraction, and I begin to feel as tho the battle is lost before even the muster of the troops is begun. McLean is coldly received. No second is yet made to our Ohio nomination, and this move for Harrison very much weakens its force. In my opinion one thing only can save us – the voluntary withdrawal of both Clay & Webster. Neither of them can be elected, yet their respective partizens obstruct every movement adverse to what they esteem the interest of their respective favorites. If no withdrawal can take place, I think a congressional caucus ought to be resorted to – If that cannot be made effective, the party may as well be considered as dissolved. Its continuance serves only to strengthen the administration by enforcing unanimity among the household of the palace. / Yours sincerely, C. Hammond *This second letter refers to the assassination attempt made on the life of President Andrew Jackson. On January 30, 1835, the first attempt to kill a sitting President of the United States occurred when Jackson was leaving the Capitol, Richard Lawrence, an unemployed housepainter from England, aimed a pistol at Jackson, which misfired. Lawrence then pulled out a second pistol, which also misfired. (2) Cincinnati, Feb 8, 1835 / Dear Ewing, /There is great apathy prevalent here in respect to public affairs – The expositions of the post office abuses excite little attention, and even the attack on the hero had created but a very slight sensation. We received the account of it, in the N. Intelligence of Jan 31, on Thursday evening, by the river, just as our next days paper was going to press. It was immediately put in type and without diffusing the news – The paper was on the press about 8 oclock and I took one and went to a much resorted coffee house to witness what would be the impression – some twenty persons were congregated, engaged in playing domino, backgammon & drafts or looking on at the games – I announced my intelligence – there was no rants – no expression of interest – no inquisitiveness for particulars – One or two of the players looked up, but the others exclaimed, “Come, it is your play, go on” So much for news of an attempt to appropriate our hero – “the greatest & the best of men” – I attempt no explanation. I give the fact for what it is worth, with the additional one, that it would seem to have been a totally fair sample of public feeling here. Twice I wrote to you, Feb 1. I have observed in various papers, suggestions, in favor of the opposition in Congress, agreeing upon a candidate for the Presidency before they separate. I have seconded the suggestion, by an editorial in the Gazette and it has been well received. I am thoroughly persuaded that more than four fifths of the opposition would prefer this course, and I do not believe any more would be as likely to reconcile all. The nominations of so many cannot but occasion divisions. The sooner measures are taken to arrest them, the easier it will be to heal their divisions – the less hope is excited the less the feelings of rivalry, among candidates and their friends will take root – One thing seems certain to me, if all cannot now be reconciled & united, they never can be . If harmony of feeling and action is unattainable the sooner we know it the better. I can see no hopes for Mr. Webster. In New York and Pennsylvania, the din of federalism will be as the Shirt of Nusses - Opposition to the war will be the same in the West, & in the South the proclamation and the Forse bill – The chance for Mr. Clay is better than for Mr. Webster – the difficulty in respect to him, we all feel, and whilst regret & deprecate it, we have too much reason to fear that it is inseparable – My opinion is that McLean stands better than either of them; but there is a haven of great bitterness against him among the Whigs of the whole West, and I am fearful that both Webster & Clay feel insufferable objections to him. There is no evidence in the general reception of Harrisons nomination, that he would be well received – the intelligence of the country cannot respond to it – They have had enough of Military Chieftains – B W Leigh I am persuaded presents the fairest prospect for concern trusting all parties & sections – His recent re-election is a strong indication from Virginia. None of the impracticable objections against the others I have named exist as to him - I have given the whole matter much reflection for a long time and looking at matters as they now stand. I would say Leigh for President & Samuel Belle of N. Hampshire, would be a judicious nomination. We are visited with a spell of most severe cold – the thermometer has been lower than for several years ranging much of the time from zero to ten below. The health of the City is generally good – /Sincerely yours, C. Hammond (3) Cincinnati March 30. /Dear Ewing, / Was there no portion of the documents accompanying Tyler! Bank report published? I have been too unlucky as to get none. Neither have I received any of the documents accompanying the Post office report in the House. Of the Poindexter report I have no copy at all - Can you supply me with all or any of them? Our Buckeyes are anxious you should make one of them on April 7 – If not very inconvenient. You ought to be here – Having plumped into the vortex of politics you should avail yourself of all prosper opportunities to multiply friends. An occasion better than this may not again offer. Personally, you are known here to very few. A strong prejudice has been excited against you. Your personal presence and personal intercourse cannot fail to diminish this. That you are a native of the West is not known so generally as it might be. That fact ascertained and a complying with the body of the nesters that will be here congregated will infuse into many the affection and the pride that forms the Esprit de Core I have no doubt the celebration will be highly respectable and deeply interesting. /Yours sincerely (Signature was clipped out) (4) Columbus, Dec. 16, 1835/ Dear Ewing, /Matters proceed here very smoothly. I can give you no news. The Presidents message is a veritable hotchpotch of demagoguism. The French affair cuts a most farcical figure. I dissent totally, from the mass of Editorial notices. There is no war in it perceptible to my vision. It is mere humbuggery. Ever necessary apology is made preceding the vaporing that he will make none and that is a shallow piece of special pleading in itself. The recall of the cheque is a mere set off against last winters recall of the French Minister. Is not that your reading? An adjustment is fully expected and the idea is purposed of making the people believe that France has been frightened into compliance. Why should the creditors be made the victims either of all this maneuvering or of the point of honor, if it is really to be made? I suggest the propriety of moving that the American Government pay the creditor and they make the controversy truly a material one. As well do this with your surplus millions or waste it in warlike preparations, fortifying or naval. Allow me to ask your attention forthwith to a small private matter. There is a case in the Supreme Court S. Sprigg & other plaintiffs in error vs Mount Pleasant Bank. Will you ascertain where it heads on the docket and advise me. If the record is printed obtain a copy and forward it to me here – with Direction to send it to Cincinnati, if I have left here. I expect to remain here until in Jany. Be so good as to sick(?) the Senator as far as you can and oblidge (sic) me in this matter. / Yours truly, /C. Hammond The case as was decided in 1836, regarding the loan of $2,100 from the bank to the plaintiffs challenging the bank on the interest charged after payment was not made in time. Charles Hammond (1779 – 1840) was an attorney, journalist and early Ohio political leader. Hammond became interested in the political issues of the state. Between 1813 and 1822, he was elected first to the Ohio Senate and then to the Ohio House of Representatives. His greatest interest was in judicial matters and from 1823 to 1838, Hammond served as the reporter of the Ohio Supreme Court. During his tenure as court reporter, he published the first nine volumes of Reports of Cases in the Supreme Court of Ohio. Hammond continued to practice law for the rest of his life. He became well known for his position defending the state in the United States Supreme Court case, Osborn v. Bank of the United States (1824). Hammond argued that Ohio had the authority to tax the National Bank of the United States because it was a business that competed with other businesses in the state. Although Ohio lost the case, Hammond's was recognized as an excellent lawyer. Chief Justice John Marshall complemented Hammond's "remarkable acuteness and accuracy of mind." In addition to practicing law, Hammond also had an interest in journalism. Living in St. Clairsville, he edited the Ohio Federalist from 1812 to 1818. After moving to Cincinnati in 1826, Hammond became the editor of the Cincinnati Gazette. He continued to manage the newspaper and write editorials about constitutional law until his death on April 3, 1840. Thomas Ewing, Sr. (December 28, 1789 – October 26, 1871) was a National Republican and Whig politician from Ohio. He served in the U.S. Senate as well as serving as the Secretary of the Treasury and the first Secretary of the Interior.

First edition of Schwerd's seminal paper on the diffraction from the fundamental laws of wave theory.F. M. Schwerd, a pioneer of the early Fraunhofer diffraction, studied the intensity diffraction pattern of a circular aperture, also known as Airy disc.Schwerd's theory presented in the present paper was highly influential. Max Von Laue, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1914 for his discovery of the diffraction of X-rays by crystals, wrote in his autobiography: "Only shortly before this, when writing an article for Enzyklopaedie der mathematischen Wissenschaften, I had given the old theory of diffraction by an optical grating, which went back to Schwerd (1835), a new formulation in order that by applying the equation of the theory twice over, the theory of diffraction by a cross-grating could be obtained. I had only to write out this equation three times, corresponding to the three periodicities of a space lattice, so as to obtain the interpretation of the new discovery". (Max von Laue).Even though Schwerd published many articles and teaching books for high school, non can be measured in importance with the present work. Since Fresnel had reduced the interference of transverse vibrations in the first quarter of the 19. century, nothing of importance was published until Schwerd theoretically described the colour phenomenon when light is being deflected by obstacles from their straight path and brought to mutual interference. "Schwerd, though not well known to modern students, has had a great influence on optics through his monumental book on diffraction ... Die Beugungserscheinungen which he wrote in two years' spare time, is the classic comprehensive treatise on Fraunhofer diffraction ... Fraunhofer gave the laws which follow from his experiments but neither he nor J. F. W. Herschel developed the theory. This was done first by Schwerd and was viewed as a great triumph for wave theory over the emission theory of light. (Hoover, Richard B. and Franklin S. Harris, Jr..

Schwerd's Monumental Work on Fraunhofer Diffraction, Applied Optics, Vol. 8, Issue 11, pp. 2161-2164 (1969)).Honeyman: No. 2830, 2831 - Poggendorff, II, p. 878

On the Structure of Lavas Which Have Consolidated on Steep Slopes; With Remarks on the Mode of Origin of Mount Etna, and on the Theory of "Craters of Elevation" disbound extracts from, respectively volume for 1835 vol, 125, pp.1-38; and volume for 1858, vol 148, pp. 703-904. With a total of 5 engraved plates, (these with small and neat embossed unlinked library name), London, [The Royal Society], 1835, 1838. * Sir Charles Lyell (1797-1875), one of the greatest names in early geology, was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1826. By 1827 he had already begun to plan his chief work, The Principles of Geology. The subsidiary title, "An Attempt to Explain the Former Changes of the Earth's Surface by Reference to Causes now in Operation," gives the keynote of the task to which Lyell devoted his life. The first volume of the Principles of Geology appeared in 1830, and the second in January 1832. Received at first with some opposition, so far as its leading theory was concerned, the work had ultimately a great success, and the two volumes had already reached a second edition in 1833 when the third, dealing with the successive formations of the earth's crust, was added. Between 1830 and 1872 eleven editions of this work were published, each so much enriched with new material and the results of riper thought as to form a complete history of the progress of geology during that interval. The Antiquity of Man, appeared in 1863, and ran through three editions in one year. In this he gave a general survey of the arguments for man's early appearance on the earth, derived from the discoveries of flint implements in post-Pliocene strata in the Somme valley and elsewhere; he discussed also the deposits of the Glacial epoch, and in the same volume he first gave in his adhesion to Darwin's theory of the origin of species. In 1834 he made an excursion to Denmark and Sweden, the result of which was his Bakerian lecture to the Royal Society "On the Proofs of the gradual Rising of Land in certain Parts of Sweden."

        Samlade arbeten.

      I-II. Sthlm, L. J. Hjerta, 1835. 8:o. (8),VI,(1,1 blank),611,(1) + (4),VII,(1 blank),472 s. Två trevliga samtida obetydligt nötta hfrbd med rikt guldornerade ryggar, bl.a. med stämplar i form av en lyra och en luta vilande mot varandra, och grönstänkta snitt, etikettsignerade A. M. Högberg, Norrköping. Ryggarna lätt blekta och med liten fläck överst på den andra volymen. Bitvis lagerfläckiga. Första delen med kritstreck på s. 204 och märken av fukt inklusive fuktrand mot slutet. Inköpsanteckningar i kulspets på bakre pärmens insida i första delen. Bra ex. med svartstpl "C.U." på främre pärmarnas insidor.. I första delen är de vittra arbetena samlade och den innehåller bl.a. "Blanka, tragedi", "Demosthenes, sorgespel", "Ode till Napoleon" och "Till de återkommande svalorna". Andra delen innehåller statsvetenskapliga och juridiska skrifter och inlägg, bl.a. om tryckfrihet och domstolväsendet. Anders Lindeberg (1789-1849) var utgivare av "Stockholms posten" från 1821 till 1833, då den fick läggas ned p.g.a. dålig ekonomi. Ett av hans största intressen var teatern, han ville bl.a. reformera Kungliga teatern och om detta inte lyckades upprätta en privat teater, fri från statligt förmyndarskap. Detta visade sig omöjligt. Lindeberg ingav 1834 en skrivelse till JO där han beskyllde kungen för att handla lagstridigt och egennyttigt i fråga om teatermonopolet samt erinrade om 25-årsminnet av den dag då en svensk kung störtades för att han illa vårdat sitt lands intressen. Han åtalades för majestätsbrott och dömdes till döden. Han benådas emellertid till tre år på fästning men vägrade godta detta, utan anhöll istället om att bli halshuggen på sin födelsedag den 8 november, tillika dagen för Stockholms blodbad. Regeringen räddade sig genom att utfärda en amnesti till åminnelse av 24-årsdagen av Karl Johans ankomst till Sverige och Lindeberg blev fri under farsartade former. Han öppnade 1842, utan tillstånd, Nya teatern vid Kungsträdgården och lyckades driva den några år innan han av bl.a. ekonomiska skäl var tvungen att ge upp

(58) pp. med dansk-tysk paralelltekst samt 180 kobberstukne blomstertavler i pragtfuld original håndkolorering. Værket udkom med ialt 306 plancher samt tekst. De foreliggende tavler er numm. 91-270 med tekstblade til alle. Enkelte tavler med ganske lette brugsspor. Sidste tekstblad brunet.. Originaltrykket af dette, vel nok det smukkest kolorerede danske blomsterværk. Værket er af største sjældenhed og blev kun trykt i et ganske begrænset oplag. Det ses derfor næsten aldrig i komplet stand. (Heller ikke i Oscar Davidsen's specialsamling, indeholdende illuminerede danske værker). Således anfører Carl Christensen i "Den Danske Botaniks Historie", Bd. 1, p. 212, at "de fleste Eksemplarer har færre tavler (færre end 306), f.Eks. det i K (Det kgl. Bibliotek) kun 204." - Walter var født i Ratzeburg 1799, var maler og kobberstikker, kom til København i 1817 og var en årrække opsynsmand ved den Kgl.

The attractive plates... are conservative in style and reminiscent in both design and colouring of the late eighteenth century."

        Pteroglossus Humboldtii / Humboldt's Aracari

      [London: by the Author, 1835]. Hand-coloured lithograph by John and Elizabeth Gould, printed by C. Hullmandel. Wove paper. Very good condition. 21 1/4 x 14 1/2 inches. A fine image from the first edition of John Gould's "A Monograph of the Ramphastidae, or Family of Toucans." The toucan family is limited to Mexico, Central and South America and some West Indian islands. The first time that any member of the family was described was by Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo y Valdes in his "de la natural hystoria de las Indias." (Toledo, 1526, chapter 42) In 1555 Pierre Belon included an illustration of its beak in his "L'Histoire de la nature des oyseaux." (Paris, 1555, p.184) Andre Thevet first used the name "Toucan" with a long description, and a woodcut of a whole bird, in his "Singularitez de la France" (Paris, 1555, pp.88-90). The Latin name "Burhynchus" or "Ramphestes" (in reference to the size of the beak) was suggested by Conrad Gesner ("Icones Avium", 1560, p.130), and Linnaeus later adopted Aldrovandus's corrupted form of the latter ("Ramphastos"), which is how the family was still recognized at the time of the publication of the present image. The present image is from the first edition of Gould's work, published in 1833-1835, which represented the first concerted attempt to produce a monograph on the family. A second expanded edition was published between 1852 and 1854. Gould considered this to be a completely separate work as the plates were all re-drawn and the text re-written. Cf. Anker 170; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 101; cf. Nissen IVB 378; cf. Sauer 3; cf. Wood, p. 364; cf. Zimmer, p. 252.
