        Full Particulars of the Murder, That was Committed on the Body of...

      1836. "Horrid and Barbarous Murder Committed at Stapleton" [Broadside]. [Murder]. [Bartlett, Charles S. (d. 1837)]. [Lewis, Mary (d. 1836)]. Full Particulars of the Murder, That was Committed on the Body of Mary Lewis, By Charles S. Bartlett, her Son-in-Law, On Saturday, September 10, 1836. With the Copies of Two Letters, That he Wrote to his Wife and Father-in-Law; Also Giving an Account of the Funeral of the Murdered Woman. Bristol: John Bonner, [c.1837]. 20" x 15" broadside.

He had been married to Sarah Lewis for only a couple of months before the discovery of his mother-in-law's body. It transpires that before their marriage Sarah's father had handed over a dowry of ?47 to Bartlett, with the caveat that no more money would be forthcoming until the death of Mary Lewis. Bartlett had been seen alone with Mary on a number of occasions in the days leading up to her murder. With evidence stacking up against him Bartlett was arrested and committed to trial, where he pleaded "not guilty." However, he was found guilty by the jury and executed on April 15, 1837. There is a vivid account of this case in the Newgate Calendar: www.exclassics.com/newgate/ng885.htm. No copies located on OCLC.

        Recollections of an Artillery Officer: Including Scenes and Adventures in Ireland, America, Flanders, and France

      London: Richard Bentley, 1836. Leatherbound. Very good. 2 vols.: viii, 342; vi, 328 p. 20 cm. Full leather with gold and blank impressing, burgundy spine labels, marbled endpapers and text block edges. Moderate wear. Bookplates on front pastedowns. Light foxing. Ink inscription on a front endpaper in vol. I. The author (1790? - 1845) journeyed to Ireland in 1810 to join the Royal Artillery as a Second Lieutenant. His first active military service was at the British defeat at New Orleans, and he appeared at Waterloo too late to join in the battle. While his memoirs may be of interest to military historians, they may be even more appealing to theatre buffs. Much of Hill's spare time was spent attending theatrical presentations or performing as an amateur actor himself.

        The Trials and Execution of the Six Malefactors Who was [sic].

      1836 - Unrecorded 1814 London Execution Broadside [Broadside]. [Executions]. The Trials and Execution of the Six Malefactors Who was [sic] Executed This Morning in the Old Bailey. [London]: Pigott, Printer, Old-St[reet], [c.1814]. 13-3/4" x 8-1/2" broadside with recent archival-paper backing. Woodcut execution scene depicting six bodies hanging from a gallows below headline. Text in two columns. Light browning and negligible light soiling, a few minor creases with negligible loss to text (due to a printing flaw), "August 22nd 1814" in contemporary hand to right of woodcut. A well-preserved copy. $2,500. * This is the only known copy of this gallows broadside recording six simultaneous executions in London on 22 August 1814, a capital display excessive even for that noose-happy age. Henry Lye and John Field, burglars, Michael Maroney, John Ashton, and Francis Sturgess, highwaymen, and John Mitchell, forger, all met their end with a single drop from the gibbet, and the broadside memorializing them is illustrated with a crude woodcut of the six malefactors after their launch into eternity. Each went relatively without incident, save Ashton, who had been in a state of insanity some days. When he came on the drop he began to dance, clap his hands, and, huzzaing, exclaimed "I am Lord Wellington." After drop had fallen, he sprung up onto the platform, began to dance again and exclaimed, "am I not Lord Wellingtonnow?" The executioner was obliged to push him off, and he died in great agony.

Henry (Heinrich) Kurtz (1796-1874) came to America in 1817 at the age of 21. He became a pastor at the Western Pennsylvania parish in 1823. Right from the beginning there were rumblings of dissatisfaction due to his advanced ideas about communal movements and his blunt, at times untactful behavior. He resigned and left for Columbiana County in Ohio and on to Starck County soon after where he became a printer and planner for communal society. In 1825 the first issue of his "Wiedergefundenes Paradies" (Found Again Paradise) was published. Among many other contributions in 1826 Kurtz published the constitution of the Harmony Society, a Christian theosophy and pietist society, originally founded in Germany Johann Georg Rapp, who's Indiana settlement had been sold to Robert Owen who renamed the society "New Harmony." In the same year the first meeting of Kurtz's friends of the Christliche Industrie Gesellschaft Concordia took place in the same year, a society to establish an educational institute, a house for the care of the elderly, a library, a printing shop, a general hospital and a Union church. Among the many publications of the printing shop was the New Testament, a translation into German by Martin Luther in 1836. The first German Lutheran New Testament published in America was printed in 1743.

        The Most Striking Events Of A Twelvemonths' Campaign With Zumalacarregui , In Navarre And The Basque Provinces. A wonderful example of a scarce book.

      John Murray, London 1836 - Two small octavo volumes finely bound in contemporary black calf; twin burgundy morocco labels; spines gilt in compartments between broad raised bands gilt; gilt rule and decoration in blind on covers; original light yellow endpapers; speckled edges; tiny paper trade label on rear paste-downs of J. Seacome, Bookseller & Stationer, , Bridge St. Row, Chester. xvi, 307; (1), vi, 302pp. Complete with frontispiece portrait (spotted) and lithographed folding map. There is a little rubbing but overall- outstanding. Henningsen (1815-1877) was a writer, mercenary soldier and munitions expert. He was born in Brussels of Danish-Irish descent. He entered the service of Don Carlos in 1834 and rose to be captain of the bodyguard to General Tomas de Zumalacarregui. After the signing of the Lord Eliot Convention of April 1835, Henningsen returned to England but soon went back to Spain in the rank of lieutenant-colonel and joined the Carlist expedition that threatened Madrid and Aragon. He fought at the battle of Villar de los Navarros (24 August 1837), a Carlist victory, and then headed the Carlist lancers and was attacked near Madrid by Liberal (Isabeline) forces. Henningsen distinguished himself by leading a column against these forces, capturing the outer defences of Madrid. However, as Don Carlos was unable to send reinforcements, he was taken prisoner but released on parole. Thus ended his participation in the first Carlist War, but Henningsen later fought in Russia, Hungary, Nicaragua and the United States! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED] [FRANCE] [TALLEYRAND] Autograph letter by Talleyrand, signed at the bottom and dated March 20th, 1836

      Fine. One single-sided leaf, about 6" x 7 1/3" (16 cm x 19"), with an eleven-line autograph letter from Talleyrand to a Mr. Dupertuis (his "intendant," or steward / assistant). The letter reads, in French (please excuse our amateur transcription): " Paris, le 20 Mars 1836 / Faites-moi le plaisir, mon cher Dupertuis,/de prendre, aupres des personnes qui pourront vous les/donner, du [renseignement?] sur une terre qui est/a vendre dans les environs de Valencay. Cette terre/ s'appelle Chateau-Robert, Commune de Vandoeuvre,/ pres Bazancais. Vous vous informeriez du prix/auquel on veut la vendre, la [?] du propriete,/ Bois, etc., et vous voudriez bien m'envoyer le plus tot/possible [ce rnseignement?]./Je vous renouvelle, mon cher Dupertuis, l'assurance de mon sincere attachement. Le pce. de Talleyrand." A very slight difference in penmanship suggests that Talleyrand may have dictated the message to an assistant, then signed his name at the end, though it's possible that he wrote it himself. English translation: "Paris, March 20, 1836. Do me the pleasure, my dear Dupertuis, to get, from persons who can/give it to you, some information concerning an estate which is for sale in the neighborhood of Valencay. This estate is called Chateau Robert, Comune de Vandoeuvre, near Bazancais. You will ascertain the price at which they want to sell it, the area of the estates, woods, etc., and you will have the kindness to send me the information as quickly as possible. I renew to you, my der Depertuis, the assurance of my sincere attachment. Le pce. de Talleyrand." In fine condition, with old, faint folds, barely visible today. (Includes a separate leaf with typed English translation).

Les séductions des Nymphes le tentent en vain': the dejected Zéphyr wipes a tear away with his finger, a burlesque of Taglioni's aging co-star Albert's physiognomy, wig and costume The so-called 'Anacreontic' ballet Flore et Zéphyr is the principal work of the choreographer Charles-Louis Didelot (1767-1837) and seems to have been one of the first ballets in which dancers performed en pointe. 2 Written originally as one act of seven scenes, it was first staged in 1796 in London with Marie Rose Paul as Flore and Didelot himself as Zéphyr. 3 The ballet was revived by Didelot in the Paris Opéra on 12 December 1815, as a two-act production (new music by Frédéric-Marc-Antoine Venua and added airs by Pierre-Louis Hus-Desforges and François-Charlemagne Lefebure), and remained in the reper­toire of the Opéra until 8 March 1826, with 164 performances given to that date. 4 After a short rest, Flore et Zéphyr was revived in June 1830 in the King's Theatre in the Haymarket, London (five performances), with Marie Taglioni as Flore and Antoine-Louis Coulon as Zéphyr. Two performances featuring Taglioni and the veteran Albert were then given in London during April 1831 and four perform­ances during April-May 1833; it is supposed that Thackeray attended one of the latter. 5 On 4 May 1833, a satirical review of the ballet appeared in the National Standard, the first number of that journal published under Thackeray's editorship. 6 His caricatures were published in the spring of 1836 without text apart from the title printed on the wrapper (transcribed above) and captions printed on the mounts. The caricatures document a production in long Romantic ballet skirts and emphasise the illusion of flying obtained by elaborate stage machinery (counter-weighted wires and corsets). The first six of the eight plates depict the ballet: The Dance making its offerings at the altar of Harmony ('La Danse fait ses offrandes sur l'autel de l'Harmonie'); The innocent games of Zéphyr and Flore ('Jeux Innocents de Zéphyr et Flore'); Flore laments Zéphyr's absence ('Flore déplore l'absence de Zéphyr'); In a pas-seul, Zéphyr expresses his extreme despair ('Dans un pas-seul il exprime son extrême désespoir'); Sad and dejected, Zéphyr is unmoved by the charms of the nymphs ('Triste et abattu. Les séductions des Nymphes le tentent en vain'); The reconciliation of Flore and Zéphyr ('Réconciliation de Flore et Zéphyr'). The last two prints are of scenes after the curtain has fallen: Flore's retreat ('La Retraite de Flore'), showing Taglioni, wrapped in a shawl, receiving the adoration of a vulgar young swell and a stout middle-aged man; and The relaxation of Zéphyr ('Les Délassements de Zéphyr'), depicting the forty-six year old Albert consoling himself with a pint of porter and a pinch of snuff. The prints were issued uncoloured (copy in British Library, shelfmark C 59 h2) and lightly tinted (as here). The collector H.S. Van Duzer asserted that his uncoloured copy represented the 'first issue', a point sustained by the high price ($1900) which Jerome Kern paid for it in the Van Duzer sale (Anderson Galleries, New York, 6 February 1922, lot 93), if not by subsequent bibliographers. (In the Kern sale, in Anderson Galleries, 23 January 1929, the copy was resold for $2900.) Van Duzer reported his copy to be 'as large or larger than any other copy we have exam­ined', its wrapper measuring 14 ¾ × 10 ⅞ inches and plates 13 ½ × 9 ¾ inches. The wrapper of our copy is of equal height, but ¼ inch narrower; the plates of our copy measure 13 ¼ × 9 ¾ inches. In comparison, the plates of the highly regarded coloured copy in the Morris Parrish collection (now Princeton University) are said to measure 13 3/ 16 × 9 9/ 16 inches, and the plates of the Pierpont Morgan Library copy 12 ¾ × 9 ⅛ inches. [img-3197-left-large_default] Fig. 3. Two drawings attributed to Thackeray, which the collector Frederic Robert Halsey (1847-1918) caused to be bound in this copy. Two drawings associated with the prints survive in the Edward FitzGerald scrapbook. 7 Inserted in our copy are two unrelated drawings, both convincingly ascribed to Thackeray. One, a rapid sketch executed in pen and ink (176 × 120 mm sheet), depicts a female figure wearing a coronet, shown in profile, with a crowd of onlookers glimpsed through an open door; it very probably is a theatrical scene. The other drawing, executed in pencil and pen and ink heightened with coloured wash and ink (96 × 89 mm sheet), depicts a man in theatrical costume (broad-brimmed hat and sword). references Richard Hearne Shepherd, The Bibliography of Thackeray (London 1881), no. 3; Charles Plumptree Johnson, Hints to collectors of original editions of the works of William Makepeace Thackeray (London 1885), p.12 no. 11; Henry Sayre Van Duzer, A Thackeray library (New York 1919), no. 69; [Morris L.

        The Writings of George Washington Being His Correspondence, Addresses, Messages, and Other Papers, Official and Private.

      Boston: American Stationers Company. John B. Russell, 1836-1837. The complete writings of George Washington. Large octavo, 12 volumes, uniformly bound in full contemporary calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, rebacked. Frontispiece of Washington to volumes 1-3; engraved by J.W. Paradise from a painting by J.G. Chapman after a painting by C.W. Peale; frontispiece in volumes 2 and three engraved by A.B. Durand, the first from a painting by Gilbert Stuart; frontispiece in volume 12 of Martha Washington engraved by J. Cheney. Editor Jared Sparks was a noted early American historian and President of Harvard College. Sparks worked as editor of the North American Review and a Unitarian pastor in Baltimore. His most notable work was his Writings of George Washington. An attractive set. George Washington served as the first President of the United States from 1789 to 1797 and was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. Washington served as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War against the British Crown and presided over the 1787 convention that drafted the United States Constitution. An international icon for liberation and nationalism, Washington left a legacy of documentary records throughout his lifetime. Historian Jared Sparks was the first to collect and publish these writings in the 1830's first with Life and Writings of George Washington (1834-1837), and later with The Writings of George Washington Being His Correspondence, Addresses, Messages, and Other Papers, Official and Private beginning in 1931.

        Journal Portsmouth to Madras 1835-36.

      At sea: 1835-1836. Journal kept by Captain J.T. Baldwin Madras Artillery during a voyage to India in the year 1835 [&] Original verses written on visiting home after a few years absence; Original verses on visiting Newgate after seven years Transportation; Extracts from the Lady Flora Gazette of Saturday 26th September 1835 etc., autograph manuscript, together 186 pp., 6pp. Contents and Index, small pen and ink sketch of a prisoner in Newgate Gaol, full-page pencil drawing of a building in India (small tears and tipped in with tape), both by J.T. Baldwin, typescript page of Contents inserted; first p. soiled, 20th century ink inscription on front free endpaper, wrappers. 4to, 1835-36. An important rediscovery: this substantial journal, never before published in any form, provides a remarkable insight into life on board an India-bound vessel called the Lady Flora in 1835. It was written by Captain John Timins Baldwin, an officer in the Royal Artillery returning to his post in the subcontinent, and a literate and keen observer: "What scope," he justly observes at one point, "a voyage to India gives one for the study of character, and how impossible for an individual to conceal theirs from a close observer" (65).The journal was written privately for Baldwin's wife Barbara (née Campbell): she was from the influential Edinburgh family of that name, and was remaining in Scotland with their young children, but would later join him in India. In fact, she outlived him by some 45 years, and would no doubt have treasured this relic of his life and thoughts written while still a relatively young man. One of the most significant aspects of the journal is that it dates from an era when the close association between India and New South Wales was really being cemented, in which light it is fascinating to see Baldwin reverting to the subject of transportation. Far and away the most important, and a genuine contribution to the tradition of comic verse relating to transportation and New South Wales, is Baldwin's inclusion of his own unrecorded comic poem 'Original verses on revisiting Newgate after seven years Transportation' (168-171), which imagines the thoughts of a transportee to Van Diemens Land on his return to England. In the poem the narrator finds himself once more in Newgate, awaiting the ship which will take him back to "Botany Bay". It is a conspicuously rare example of a poem in which the narrator is delighted with his good luck at being sent out to Australia, rather than the more common examples in which narrators lament their fate.With an adroit comic turn it concludes:But still what Odds! The big wig's care,Thinking I wanted change of Air,Gave me of Hope once more a ray,And pack'd me off, to Botany Bay.Oh then it was a bitter pill,But since I've found they meant me wellAnd graceless it would seem and rude,Did I not show my gratitude.Then once more free, and left and right,I'll do them all, so blow me tight.The poem is also adorned with a nicely executed ink drawing of the prisoner languishing in prison, which shows that Baldwin was a useful artist. Although Baldwin describes the poem as a parody, it is important to note that it is not simply a random nor unstudied inclusion, because Baldwin had clearly given a deal of thought to the subject of transportation to New South Wales, based on what he had heard and discussed of the conviction of a friend and fellow officer of his in India, on "Dickinson". Given the date and the details provided by Baldwin, it can be shown that this must have been John Dickenson (usually spelt with an "e"), a Captain in the Artillery cashiered in late 1834. Dickenson was initially sent to Tasmania on the Resource (Captain Coombes), but then went on to Sydney on the Siren (Captain Munro), arriving 9 April 1835. Dickenson's life is neatly summarised in his convict indent, where he is noted as being a 40-year-old married man with one son who had been convicted of embezzlement (New South Wales, Convict Indents, 1788-1842). Dickenson had had a long career in India, having been made a "Lieutenant-Fireworker" in the Royal Artillery as early as July 1813, full Lieutenant in 1818, and Captain in 1824, long before his eventual court-martial. Baldwin's thoughts on the fate of his friend are revealed because of a remarkable coincidence: while all-but becalmed off the Indian coast, the Lady Flora happened to hail a ship called the Mary (Capt.William Ascough), then en route from Sydney to India. Conditions at sea were so benign that two of the ship's passengers were able to come on board the Lady Flora, and, compounding the coincidence, they evidently knew Dickenson and were happy to discuss his life. Baldwin was particularly interested about what he could learn about how his friend could have been expected to be treated as an educated prisoner in New South Wales. Although many convicts from India were transported to Australia, their history is not well studied, and the intimate perspective of one of Dickenson's closer friends is therefore an important insight. A long section at the end of the journal transcribes a number of pieces of occasional verse, which prove that Baldwin was an accomplished amateur versifier - and, more than that, gives a window into the sort of pieces with which the educated traveller whiled away a long voyage.Throughout, Baldwin's journal has all the hallmarks of one of the better works of its kind. For a start, it is a work of genuine substance, the journal itself running to 163 pp. (some 35 or 40,000 words), supplemented by a further 43 pp. of occasional verses relating to his experiences and the voyage. It has the candidness one would expect in a journal written expressly and exclusively for his wife Barbara (21) and "not intended to be published (80). Indeed, not only is it marked by the introspection of a man leaving his much-loved children behind, but it is also suffused with his awareness of the threat of some heavy debts to be met when he arrived (61).[A fuller description is available on request.]. Provenance: Provenance: John Timins Baldwin, and by descent through the family until recently. Throughout the paper is watermarked J. Morbey & Co. 1834, confirming that he must have acquired the paper shortlybefore he sailed. One long passage has been efficiently deleted, apparently by Baldwin himself (20-21).

For a start, it is a work of genuine substance, the journal itself running to 163 pp. (some 35 or 40,000 words), supplemented by a further 43 pp. of occasional verses relating to his experiences and the voyage. It has the candidness one would expect in a journal written expressly and exclusively for his wife Barbara (21) and "not intended to be published (80). Indeed, not only is it marked by the introspection of a man leaving his much-loved children behind, but it is also suffused with his awareness of the threat of some heavy debts to be met when he arrived (61).[A fuller description is available on request.]. Provenance: Provenance: John Timins Baldwin, and by descent through the family until recently. Throughout the paper is watermarked J. Morbey & Co. 1834, confirming that he must have acquired the paper shortlybefore he sailed. One long passage has been efficiently deleted, apparently by Baldwin himself (20-21).

        Memoirs of Napoleon, His Court and Family

      London: Richard Bentley, 1836. First edition in English. Octavo, 4 volumes, bound in full contemporary calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, illustrated, engravings throughout. In excellent condition with light rubbing and wear. A very nice set. Though he achieved many things in his career, Bourrienne is best known for drafting the Memoirs of Napoleon Bonaparte, having been close enough to the man for most of the Napoleonic Era to offer people an intimate glimpse of the famous French emperor. Napoleon, of course, needs no real introduction. Napoleon was unquestionably the most influential man of the 19th century, leaving an indelible mark on everything from the strategy and tactics of warfare to the Napoleonic Code that drafted laws across the continent. To defeat Napoleon, the Europeans had to form large coalitions, which would lead to entangling alliances that brought about World War I after Europe was rebuilt following Waterloo and the Congress of Vienna. Napoleon's influence on the United States was just as palpable. To finance his endeavors, he struck a deal with President Thomas Jefferson that became the Louisiana Purchase. It was Napoleonic warfare that was used throughout the Civil War, leading to massive casualties because the weaponry of the 1860s was now more advanced than the tactics of 1815. When Napoleon died at St. Helena, he still engendered fear and distaste among the Europeans, but the man and his legacy were admired and even held in awe and high esteem in the United States.

Vol. I: XXI, [2 = table], [1 blank], 25-441, [3 index]; Vol. II: engraved frontispiece, 67 plates, 3 maps (2 folding), (cf. photo #1), 1 engraved sketch of all institutes for the deaf and dumb and their professors. +++ Contemp. half calf, spines richly gilt with raised bands, marbled edges. Vol. II on handmade paper (Büttenpapier). First edition. The first work on the education of the deaf and dumb to attract international attention. It was published as a help for teaching the deaf mutes, with detailed exposition of the system both in the text and on the numerous figures or scenes on the fine plates. Czech regarded thinking as a mental activity being innate in each individual. Articulated speech may make the process easier but is not intrinsically necessary. He therefore thought it both morally and legally a duty to provide education to the deaf and dumb. Czech had been professor of philosophy at the Theresianischen Ritter-Akademie in Vienna and in 1818 was appointed professor at the famous Wiener Taubstummen Institut. This institute had been founded in 1779 by Maria Theresia after the example of the French Institution Nationale des Sourds Muets of the famous Abbe de l'Epee. +++ Covers well preserved, for overall outside condition and details see photo # 2. Vol. I: some foxing on FEPs and index pp., else spotless and bright. Vol. II: faded small stamps on front and end paper. Paper edges foxed.

        Patent of nobility donated by Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria (1793-1875) to Joseph Kretzer von Immertreu for his 37 years galant services to the Empire as soldier and officer.

      Austrian Empire, Vienna, d.d. 17 July 1836. Folio. Full red velvet, with yellow and black ribbons. Good condition, except for a stain on the silk end paper. 38x30 cm. 10 pages. Manuscript, calligraphic text on vellum, with printed decorative margins. With a very large hand painted coloured coat-of-arms. In the end the original signature of Ferdinand I and of Anton Friedrich Grafen Mittrowsky von Mittrowitz and Nemischl. Imperial wax seal with one large crack, in a disc shaped copper case, attached to the document by the gold cord of the binding. All encased in a metal box. This patent of nobility was donated by Ferdinand I of Austria in the early days of his reign (1835-1848). Ferdinand I is widely believed to have been a weak ruler and it is sometimes supposed that he lacked intellectual capacities. He also suffered from ill health. During the revolution of 1848, Ferdinand fled the country and abdicated in favour of his nephew Franz Joseph I. The patent explains at length the reasons why Kretzer recieved his nobility. He was born in Jägerndorf and joined the army in 1796. He became Fahnrich and subsequently Unterlieutenant in 1809, Oberlieutenantin 1813, Kapitänlieutenant in 1829 und Hauptman in 1831. He left the army in 1833 as a pensioner. He took part in the campaigns in 1799, 1805, 1809, 1813 and 1814 (Napolenonic Wars). Between 1803-1805 he was first teacher at the Regiments-Knaben-Erziehungshause (military school) and in 1809, 1813 and 1814 he was Regiments Adjudant. He recieves the noble title and the right to call himself Kretzer von Immertreu which translates as always loyal. His son also served in the military and became General-Major. H176
