      [Manila?]: Imprenta Real de D. Jose Maria Dayot, 1835. Folio (29 cm, 11.5"). [viii], 739, [1 blank], 118 pp. Palau gives the date of the first edition of this dictionary and grammar of the Tagalog language of the Philippines as 1703, with the next in 1794, followed by this in 1835. This conforms to the editions found via WorldCat; that same source finds only five U.S. libraries reporting ownership of this edition (NYPL, American Philosophical, Yale, Newberry, and Villanova). The earlier editions are even less well held.    => Printed on "rice paper," i.e., paper made using indigenous fibers.    Provenance: Bookseller's label of Deutsche Kunst und Antiquitäten Messe, München.         Palau 300543; Retana, Aparato bibliográfico, 637; Leclerc, Bibliotheca Americana, 2424; Blake, Philippine Languages, 330; Walsh, Philippine Linguistics, 1095. Recased in old limp vellum, recycled manuscript used for rear endpapers, spine lettered in an early hand; vellum yellowed and cockled. Booklabel as above. Title-page laid down and with old tape repair, closed tears to several other leaves, and some minimal foxing or staining; in fact, very good.

      London: James Cochrane & Co. 1835. Large duodecimo, with an engraved frontispiece portrait of the author, a hand-coloured aquatint costume plate, and four sepia aquatint views; contemporary dark blue polished calf, sides bordered in gilt, spine gilt in compartments with green leather label, gilt edges, yellow endpapers; half-title and advertisements discarded by the binder. First edition. This quite uncommon book is a narrative of the author's travels in Chile and Peru, and at greater length subsequent travels in the Galapagos, Marquesas, Cook, Samoan and Society Islands. The botanical index, a descriptive list of the ferns collected by Nightingale in the Pacific islands, was compiled by the great botanist William Jackson Hooker, who at the time of this publication was Professor of Botany at the University of Glasgow. Not much seems to be known about Nightingale. The frontispiece portrait of the author shows an informally dressed young man with tousled hair. He writes nicely and is in favour of the missionaries' work in the islands, although the reviewer in The Eclectic Review for 1836 felt that 'from the mode in which he writes, we think it probable that at the time he projected his expedition, he scarcely knew that any thing like an attempt had ever been made to introduce the blessings of civilization and the promises of religion into the regions he was about to explore, and therefore it is, that his testimony is the more to be valued...'. In due course Nightingale speaks of 'the wonders--yes, I may call them the wonders--that have been already wrought in the way of moral reformation by the despised--at least, the too often despised and much disparaged--Missionaries'.Louisa Keenan, who was responsible for the portrait of Nightingale, was the (bigamous) wife of the celebrated natural history artist Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins. She was the daughter of John Keenan, portrait painter to Queen Charlotte, and Frances Keenan, a landscape artist and exhibitor at the Royal Academy. The very attractive and accomplished aquatint views here are all engraved by E. Clark after drawings by Nightingale himself. Provenance: Hannah Haffenden(?), April 25th, 1873 (signature on lower free endpaper). One plate caption slightly cropped; a very nice copy.

        Narrative of a Second Voyage in Search of a North-West Passage, and of a Residence in the Artic Regions during the years 1829, 1830, 1831, 1832, 1833.

      Including the Reports of Commander, now Captain James Clark Ross and the Discovery of the Northern Magnetic Pole. + Appendix to the Narrative... In all 2 vols. London: Webster 1835. With 6 engraved maps, one of which is folded and handcoloured, 21 coloured lithographs and 23 engraved plates. Small 4to. [6] + XXXIIII + 740; XII + 120 + CXLIV + CII + [8] + [2] pp. Spines restored and hinges weak, otherwise nice copy with wide margin and chiseled edges bound in contemporary full leather with coloured labels and richly gilt on spines, boards and edges. * First edition. The unfortunate expedition, John Ross and his nephew James Clark Ross, was trapped in the ice of Boothia Peninsula for a year. In Septemper 1830 the ice began to melt, and they again were under sail. They advanced for three miles, the weather worsened, and they were stuck for another winter. A year later the same thing happened. Eventually they were forced to abandon the one remaining ship and set off through a narrow channel of water in search of rescue by artic whalers; amazingly enough they were not only picked up but by the 'Isabella' of Hull, once commanded by John Ross. In spite of the appalling difficulties of the trip, Captain Ross and his nephew made detailed and important studies of the Eskimo tribes of the region, their dress and identify the North Magnetic Pole. The illustrations by the author give a life-like picture of the Eskimos, sitting comfortably with the officers in the ships library, or standing on the ice holding their catch. The natural history supplement is also very important. Lande 1436. Staton & Tremaine 1808. Sabin 73381 + 73384. Abbey 636. Nuuk 290.

        Danton's Tod. Dramatische Bilder aus Frankreichs Schreckensherrschaft.

      J. D. Sauerländer, Düsseldorf bzw. Berlin 1835 - 152 S. 4 Blatt Anzeigen. Kleinformatiger Leinenband mit fachgerecht erneuertem Leinenrücken unter Verwendung der ursprünglichen, zeitgenössischen leinenbezogenen Deckel und mit aufgezogenem altem Leinenrücken mit dem goldgeprägtem Rückentitel in schwarzer Schmuckkassette. Georg Büchner (1813-1837) schrieb "Danton's Tod" in nur fünf Wochen unter ständiger Furcht, aufgrund seines politischen Engagements verhaftet und wegen Hochverrats angeklagt zu werden. Im Februar 1835 sandte er das Manuskript an Karl Gutzkow, der den Verleger nur mit dem Zugeständnis von Kürzungen und Texteingriffen zum Druck des Dramas überreden konnte. Doch auch in dieser durch vorauseilende Selbstzensur "entschärften" Version bleibt festzuhalten: "Das von sehr realistischer Gesinnung erfüllte, alle deutschen veristischen Bestrebungen auf dem Gebiet des Dramas vor dem Ausbruch des Naturalismus übertreffende Stück "Danton's Tod" (Erstaufführung 1902 im Berliner Belle Alliance-Theater) hat trotz gewisser Unvollkommenheiten geniale Züge" (NDB II, 721). Es handelt sich um Büchners einzige selbständige literarische Veröffentlichung zu Lebzeiten, der lediglich die beiden anonymen Fassungen des "Hessischen Landboten" vorausgegangen waren und die Übersetzung zweier Dramen Victor Hugos sowie Büchners medizinische Dissertation in französischer Sprache folgten. Mit Buchbinderstempel des Restaurators. Das weiße Blatt vor dem Titel mit ergänzter Fehlstelle und auf Karton aufgezogen sowie mit (unvollständigem) altem Namenszug. Das Titelblatt ebenfalls mit altem Namenszug "Raeder". Die Seiten durchgängig braunfleckig sowie vereinzelt mit kleinen alten Wasserflecken am Seitenrand außerhalb des Textes sowie 2 älteren Bleistiftkommentaren auf den Seiten 27 und 69. Trotz der Gebrauchsspuren und des restaurierten Einbandes handelt es sich um ein insgesamt ordentliches, noch gut erhaltenes Exemplar des seltenen Bandes. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Matthias and his impostures: or, the progress of fanaticism. Illustrated in the extraordinary case of Robert Matthews, and some of his forerunners and disciples

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1835. 347p. [+12p. ads], first edition, 6.25x4 inch green cloth boards lightly stained and frayed on corners and at head and tail of spine, patterned in blind, spine-titled gilt in narrow sansserrif, some foxing throughout and a few corners creased, otherwise a good copy of this remarkable book. Name and place in pencil to rear free endpaper. Small hole to top corner of same. The Kingdom of Matthias exemplified the wild religions of the second great awakening. Matthias, a self-proclaimed prophet, born Robert Matthew, embodied all of the religious contradictions of the period. Like many other self-proclaimed prophets, he mixed an eclectic batch of metaphors to fashion a message for the approaching millennium. Before his own conversion, he was an active anti-Mason and a fiery temperance advocate. His particular conversion experience caused him to believe that he was possessed with the spirit of God, and that he was one of many corporeal spirits running around the planet, some of which were good, some of which were evil.In the early 1830s, Matthias converted a wealthy NY businessman named Elijah Pierson, a Methodist social reformer who proselytized to the city's prostitutes. The Piersons, along with the family of another wealthy merchant, Benjamin Folger, established an upstate commune, Zion Hill, under Matthias' direction. Their small community, consisting of the two merchant families along with a smattering of other people - including a six foot tall former slave named Isabella von Wagenen, who had been a domestic servant before finding her calling as a Methodist preacher with a booming voice and who claimed to be influenced by spirit voices - was vegetarian, refused to drink alcohol, refused doctor's care for illness (sickness was a matter of possession by evil spirits), and practiced free love - all under Matthias's strict patriarchal direction. In 1835, Matthias was charged with murdering Pierson. Although he was acquitted, the sensationalism surrounding the trial and the accusations of free love against Zion Hill caused the community to collapse. Matthias moved west, first visiting Joseph Smith in Kirtland, then moving west across the Mississippi, where he tried to refound his community before falling into obscurity. Isabella von Wagenen, on the other hand, went in a very different direction. Implicated in the scandals, she sued the NY newspapers for libel based on their sensational reportage of her role in the Matthias sect. She wound up in the Millerite movement until shortly before its collapse, and her internal voices told her to become an itinerant minister. After preaching the gospel in NY and Connecticut for some months, she joined the utopian Northampton Association in western Massachusetts. While there, she became involved with the abolitionist movement, and changed her name, as her inner voices and her belief in Matthias told her - to Sojourner Truth.

        De la Democratie en Amerique

      Four volumes. Near contemporary quarter blue morocco. Folding map after Tocqueville by Bernard. Some browning and foxing. An excellent set. FIRST EDITIONS. Famed Harvard constitutional scholar Harvey Mansfield called Democracy in America "at once the best book ever written on democracy and the best book ever written on America." The most influential commentary on America in the nineteenth century, Democracy in America was based on Tocqueville's travels in the United States in 1831 and 1832. Tocqueville came to America to study the American prison system on behalf of the French government. After completing his official duties in the east, he toured the West and the South, visiting Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, Alabama, the Carolinas, Virginia, and Washington, D. C. The book resulting from these investigations is generally considered the 19th century's most insightful commentary on the development of our unique American culture and political system. Tocqueville declared, "Democratic nations care but little for what has been, but they are haunted by visions of what will be; in this direction their unbounded imagination grows and dilates beyond all measure ... Democracy, which shuts the past against the poet, opens the future before him." Fewer than 500 copies of the first part were published. The second part (1840) was issued concurrently with the eighth edition of the first part, helping to explain why quality matched sets are so difficult to obtain today. The book was an immediate success, and more than fifty editions were published in French and English in the nineteenth century. For nearly two centuries it has provoked endless discussion and been an inspiration for countless commentaries on American democracy. Finely bound matched sets of the first edition are difficult to locate.

        [Autograph Manuscript] British Troops in America: Colonel Napier's Speech at Bath

      [London], 1835. Good. Separated at folds, edge worn and torn, a few chips, one affecting a few words at the end of about a dozen lines of text, light soiling.. 6 pp. with integral address. Manuscript with numerous corrections and additions concerning the failure of the British military in the War of 1812. In late 1835 then Colonel William Francis Patrick Napier (1785-1860) member of the British Army and a military historian, gave speech at Bath which the Sunday Times reported, claiming he had criticized the British soldiers in the War of 1812 as failing because they "stood as patriots and freemen, on less firm and less elevated ground than the Americans themselves" which John Mitchell notes at the very beginning of this article published in the January 1836 issue of "United Service Journal and Naval and Military Service Magazine" (pp. 84-92). Defending the soldiers, Mitchell goes on to launch an attack on Napier's speech and the British command and their tactics. "The failure of the British troops at New Orleans was as complete as possible; but patriotism or want of patriotism, had nothing to do with the business.... The military policy of England, guided by men, ignorant alike of the strength and the weakness of armies, swayed besides by the influence of philanthropic and economical patriots, whose evil counsel fell, like a death-bearing pestilence, on the ranks of the army-shone out in all its poor and paltry littleness: in the constant striving to save farthings, millions of treasure were wasted, and thousands of gallant lives were remorselessly sacrificed. The valour everywhere exhibited by the troops, the zeal, ability, high spirit, and devotedness displayed by so many matchless officers, the number of gallant blows struck, and noble feats of arms performed,- were not, it must be allowed, sufficient to counterbalance the folly, ignorance, and presumption, that marked the official management of that most miserable war. But, I repeat, the fault was not with the troops" The failure is not just at New Orleans. "The British failed at Sacket's Harbour, Platsburgh, and New Orleans; to which, for argument sake, we will add Baltimore.... At Sacket's Harbour and Platsburgh the British forces retired from phantom hosts and imaginary foes.... At Baltimore something of the same kind happened." After a detailed analysis of the military's failures, he ends his unrelenting attack: "But the soldiers of a great nation must know that they are equal to any contest. An American war, like every war in which brave men are to be encountered, has its difficulties; and it is only by looking those difficulties fairly in the face that they can be overcome. Had we listened to the liberal and patriotic despondency which so long represented us incapable of contending against the French, we should at this moment have been crouching beneath the lash of Napoleon, or his successor on the throne of the Grand Empire." Needless to say, many jumped to the defense of Napier, who wrote in his letter to the editor that the Sunday Times report of his speech was pure fiction and that he never criticized the troops; in fact, he states he never mentioned the war at all. John Mitchell (1785-1859) was an army officer and writer who served in the West Indies in the Peninsular War, and on diplomatic missions for Wellington. He wrote much on the defects of the British army, tactics, and a number of volumes including "The Fall of Napoleon" and "Biographies of Eminent Soldiers." Postmarked London, December 22, 1835. Addressed to Major [Thomas Henry] Shadwell Clerke, who was editor of "The United Service Journal and Naval and Military Service Magazine."

        [Autobiography. Series of 29 autobiographical letters addressed to the editor of The New England magazine, dated 1833-1835]

      [Philadelphia]: n.p., 1835. First separate edition. Removed. Inked numeral 'six' on first page, first half dozen or so leaves with marginal foxing otherwise contents quite clean, a few marginal tears to the last few leaves, two marginal stitch punctures throughout, last leaf with a tiny puncture affecting one letter and with lower forecorner lacking, not affecting text, two words rubbed on last page, and remnants of original blue-gray wrappers at the joints. Perhaps lacking a portrait. Still a good copy.. 122 pp. Published without a title page (see NUC-pre-1956). A series of 29 autobiographical letters addressed to the editor of "The New England Magazine," dated 1833-1835. This volume was Mathew Cary's second attempt at an autobiography in book form. The first, entitled "Autobiographical Sketches, in a Series of Letters addressed to a Friend. Vol. 1, containing a view of the Rise and Progress of the American System, & c." (Philadelphia, 1829), was issued but then suppressed by the author's family, according to Rosenbach, in his 1906 catalogue. Though Earl Lockridge Bradsher in his "Mathew Carey, editor, author and publisher; a study in American literary development" (NY: Columbia Univ. Press, 1912) suggests "Letters" is a republication of the earlier volume, it is in fact a much different work, though it covers some of the same ground, as an autobiography must. The publication history is somewhat unclear due to lack of the title page, the very small printing, and the later private issue with three additional letters. Though a number of copies list a portrait, some do not, nor does American Imprints note one, and the remnants of the original blue-gray wrappers on our copy suggest it was not bound with one. OCLC locates only eight copies, under four accession numbers (some of them mis-titled): NYPL, Newberry, Univ. Texas at Austin, and Wesleyan, lacking portrait) (OCLC: 28596934), BC and Univ. Wisc. (OCLC: 15389834), and the Free Lib. of Phila. and Office of Commonwealth Lib. (OCLC: 8200528). An additional one is at the LCP under a caption title (portrait not noted). Very rare. Only one at auction- a century ago, at the third Pennypacker sale, lot 80, in 1906, lacking 6 leaves (perhaps confused with the later private issue which had 12 additional pages?), and noted as the only known copy (at that time), with no mention of a portrait. The earlier "Sketches", noted in Sabin and Howes, though a bit more represented in institutional holdings, likewise appeared at auction only once, at the Anderson Galleries in 1909. Amer. Imprints 30817. Not in Sabin.
