        Green Heron

      London 1836 - From the first edition of "The Birds of America." A finely composed image with a strong upward diagonal movement from the unheeding juvenile bird as it darts its neck out to seize the Luna moth that has momentarily come to rest on the foliage of the marsh plant. Partially concealed under the foliage, an adult bird stalks past more warily. "Pools or bayous, and the margins of the most limpid streams, are alike resorted to by this species for the purpose of procuring food. It is little alarmed by the presence of man, and you may often see it close to houses on the mill-dams, or even raising its brood on the trees of gardens. This is often the case in the suburbs of Charleston, in South Carolina, where I have even seen several nests on the same live oak.The gentleness.of this bird is truly remarkable, for it will at times allow you to approach within a few feet paces, looking as unconcernedly upon you as the House Sparrow is wont to do in the streets of London.The Green Herons feed all day long, but, I think, rarely at night. Their food consists of frogs, fishes, snails, tadpoles, water-lizards, crabs, and small quadrupeds, all of which they procure without much exertion.Their gait is light, but firm. During the love-season they exhibit many curious gestures, erecting all the feathers of their neck, swelling their throat, and uttering a rough guttural note like qua , qua , several times repeated by the male as he struts before the female. This note is also usually emitted when they are started, but when fairly on wing they proceed in silence" (J. J. Audubon, The Birds of America , New York & Philadelphia: 1840-1844, vol. VI, pp.106-107). "This small dark heron is the most generally distributed member of its family in the United States.At close range it reveals a rich chestnut neck and greenish-yellow or orange legs. In strong light its somewhat iridescent upper-parts may seem more blue than green.Whereas most other herons breeds in colonies, the green heron tends to be a loner, usually nesting in the privacy of some thick grove or in an orchard, but there are places, particularly near the coast, where several pairs nest together in loose association" (R. T. & V. M. Peterson, Audubon's Birds of America , London: 1981, no. 31). Susanne M. Low, A Guide to Audubon's Birds of America , New Haven & New York: 2002, pp.170-171. Hand-coloured engraving with aquatint and etching by R. Havell, 1836, paper watermarked "J. Whatman/1837," two small clean tears to margins. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Allan le Jeune Déporté à Botany-Bay

      Paris: Desiree Eymery, 1836. Small octavo, frontispiece, title vignette and three full-page engraved plates; contemporary prize label, a handsome copy in contemporary tree calf, spine ends a little worn with slight loss at the headband. First edition of a scarce French children's story set in Australia about an errant child sent to the convict colony at Botany Bay. The introduction notes the work is one of moral instruction, teaching children valuable lessons in piety, honesty, honour and to love and respect their parents. Although the book is set in Australia, Muir notes the Gallic nature of its description with exotic passages on transportation, kangaroos and cannibals. The finely engraved plates are noteworthy: one depicts the hero, Allan, bound to a tree and struggling to escape as native figures dance around a blazing fire in the distance.

        Una Veduta Lunare

      Milano: Pagagni, no date, but, 1836. Lithograph, 480 x 220 mm. (sheet size), some foxing and a little marginal discolouration, good. Extraordinary nineteenth-century lithograph of a utopian lunar community, complete with winged humanoids, palm trees and beavers at work on an ingenious wigwam like home. The inclusion of lush vegetation and palm trees draws upon an earlier utopian tradition from the tropical Pacific, while novel architectural forms loom in the distance. This idyllic scene was inspired by the lunar hoax of 1835, when six articles reporting life on the moon appeared in the New York newspaper The Sun. The articles were entirely spurious, claiming that the esteemed astronomer Sir John Herschel had viewed an amazing lunar society while using a high powered telescope based at the Cape of Good Hope. Many elements of the hoax were in fact derived from fanciful speculations of moon life published in the first decades of the nineteenth century that were quite popular. Although Herschel quickly denounced the findings as entirely fictitious, the stories had by this stage acquired a momentum of their own. Pamphlets and prints were published across Europe, of which this Milanese lithograph is an arresting example. Interestingly, the descriptive text accompanying this print asserts scientific plausibility by stating that evidence was published in the Edinburgh Journal of Sciences.

        Ledetraad til Nordisk Oldkyndighed

      Copenhagen: S. L. Møller, 1836. <p>Genesis of the "Three-Age" System in Prehistory</p><p>[Thomsen, Christian Jurgensen (1788-1865), ed.]. Ledetraad til Nordisk Oldkyndighed. [4], 100pp. Text illustrations. 201 x 127 mm. Copenhagen: S. L. Møller, 1836. 19th century boards, rebacked, endpapers renewed, edges a bit worn. Minor foxing but very good. 19th century armorial bookplate; 20th century bookplate of Laege Georg Moltved.</p><p>First Edition. The first curator of the National Museum in Copenhagen, Thomsen formulated a method of classifying the museum&#39;s archeological collections according to whether the artifacts were made of stone, bronze or iron. He claimed that these three groupings represented three chronologically successive archeological ages; this was the genesis of the Three-Age system, "the basic chronology that now underpins the archaeology of most of the Old World" (Rowley-Conwy, From Genesis to Prehistory [2007] p. 1). </p><p>The principal publication of Thomsen&#39;s three-age concept appeared in Ledetraad til Nordisk Oldkyndighed (1836) a guidebook to the National Museum edited by Thomsen. The second chapter of this work, contributed by Thomsen, described his dating scheme and applied it to the monuments and antiquities of the North. Thomsen defined the three ages as follows:</p><p>"The Age of Stone, or that period when weapons and implements were made of stone, wood, bone, or some such material, and during which very little or nothing at all was known of metals. . . .</p><p>"The Age of Bronze, in which weapons and cutting implements were made of copper or bronze, and nothing at all, or but very little was known of iron or silver. . . .</p><p>"The Age of Iron is the third and last period of the heathen times, in which iron was used for those articles to which that metal is eminently suited, and in the fabrication of which it came to be employed as a substitute for bronze" (Thomsen, Guide to Northern Archaeology [1848], pp. 64-68).</p><p>Thomsen was a scholar with a background in the history of numismatics rather than a field archaeologist. He based his study of artifacts on the associations between stylistic change, decoration and context-- topics which may have interested him initially through his numismatic researches. Thomsen recognized the importance of examining objects from "closed finds," allowing him to determine the common associations of artifacts for various periods, which he divided into his Three-Age system. Thomsen&#39;s assistant, archaeologist Jens J. A. Worsaae, later demonstrated the stratigraphic succession of the stone, bronze and iron ages in Denmark through archeological fieldwork. An English translation of Ledetraad til Nordisk Oldkyndighed, by the Earl of Ellesmere, was published in 1848. Spencer 1986, no. 3.488.</p>

        Voyage pittoresque dans les duex Amériques. Résumé général de tous les Voyages

      Chez L. Tenré, Paris 1836 - Quarto, with two folding maps and numerous full-page engraved plates; a little preliminary foxing otherwise an attractive copy in contemporary gilt half morocco trade binding. Popular account of the natural wonders and indigenous peoples of South America, compiled by the veteran explorer naturalist Alcide Dessalines d'Orbigny (1802-1857). An accomplished microbiologist, d'Orbigny was appointed by Geoffrey de Saint-Hilaire to lead a scientific expedition to South America in 1824. Extensive travels throughout Brazil led him deep into in the Chaco and Guarani tribal territory, an experience fraught with hazard. Aspirations to travel further to the into Paraguay and Argentina were frustrated by ongoing warfare with Brazil, circumstances that led d'Orbigny to spend nine months in northern Patagonia. During this time, he conclusively disproved the existence of the Patagonian giants, a long-held belief originating from the wild stories circulated by mariners marooned along this unforgiving coastline. d'Orbigny continued his natural history collecting across for several more years, finally returning to France in 1833. He published his results in a nine volume opus; and during this time he compiled the present volume from the accounts of other famous voyagers (including Humboldt and La Condamine), liberally interspersed with anecdotes from personal experience.

        Autograph letter signed to John Latham Jr

      Ditton March, 1836. Ditton March, 1836. <p>Watson, Hewett Cottrell (1804-81). Autograph letter signed to John Latham Jr. 2 &#150; 1/2 pages; addressee&#146;s name on verso of second leaf. Ditton March, February 15, 1836. 186 x 115 mm. Traces of sealing wax on verso of last leaf, but very good. </p><p>From British botanist and evolutionary theorist Hewett C. Watson, author of Cybele Britannica (1860-72) and other works on British plants, and a recognized authority on British plant species and their distribution. He introduced the system of biological vice-counties, a geographical division of the British Isles used by botanists to this day for biological recording and other scientific data-gathering. Watson supported the concept of species transmutation and corresponded with Darwin on the subject; in the Origin of Species Darwin acknowledged Watson several times as an important contributor of scientific information (see e.g. pages 48 and 53 of the 1859 edition of the Origin). On publication of the Origin, Watson was one of the first to write to Darwin congratulating him on his achievement (see the Darwin Correspondence Project, letter 2540, dated 21 November [1859]). </p><p>Watson&#146;s letter reads in part as follows: </p><p>"Enclosed you will find some 80 or 100 of your botl. desiderata. Some few more, in all probability, I could supply if time allowed, but your letter came to hand only this day, & tomorrow I have occasion to be in town, & propose taking them in. At a future day, I may hope to send a few others. </p><p>"The British Aspidiums [a species of fern], as you say, are very troublesome to make out, & as to As. [?acuminatum] I really know it not with any certainty. The snowdrops here, in gardens, are only just coming into bloom; primroses the same, nor have I seen a hedge specimen in flower. The sharp frosts of Dec. & Jan. have made them about a month later this year . . ." </p><p>Watson&#146;s correspondent was most likely either British physician John Latham (1761-1843), who served as president of the Royal College of Physicians and updated their pharmacopeia; or his son John (1787-1853), a magistrate and poet. The senior Latham&#146;s father was also named John, so both men could equally be called John Latham Jr.</p>

        A form letter addressed "To the Overseers of the Parish of Mereworth, Kent" advertising cheap passages for "Families, Labourers, and Poor Persons" emigrating to Australia and the British colonies; "Shovelling out paupers"

      London: 1836.. London:. 1836.. Very good condition. In 19th c. England, the practice of assisted emigration of the poor was sometimes referred to as "shovelling out paupers". In 1833 the Colonial Land and Emigration Commissioners (CLEC) were set up to manage emigration to Britain&#39;s colonies. Under the plan, some emigrants could qualify for a free passage if they were under forty years of age, of good character, having been vaccinated against smallpox, capable of labor, and from occupations such as agricultural laborers, shepherds, or female domestic and farm servants. Young married couples without children were the most desired candidates. & & This circular was printed just one year following the enactment of a provision in which the cost of emigration would be borne by the emigrant&#39;s home parish (Section 62, 1834 Poor Law Amendment Act). The parish-funded emigration was overseen by the Poor Law Commissioners. The annual report of the Poor Law Commissioners of 1836 shows that 18 parishes in Kent participated, sending 320 emigrants at a cost of £1,823. Many emigrants went to Canada due to its proximity to Britain, but South Australia, which was designated a colony in 1836, offered a free passage until 1841. The popularity of Australia surged when the discovery of gold made the news in 1852. & & The printed circular with manuscript date (March 1836) and Parish name, advertising passage to North America or Australia at £3 to £4 a head for adults. The form letter begins, "Gentlemen, I beg to acquaint you, that I am ready to Contract for the Conveyance of Families, Labourers, and Poor Persons to the British Colonies in North America, Australia, and the United States, and likewise to Victual them if required, which I can do at a much less expense than having them found by the Vessel." "Our packets are Sailing from here, for Quebec, New York, Philadelphia, Boston & c. Twice every Week, during the Season..." The printed address at the top "2, Upper East Smithfield, Near the London Dock Entrance, London." The circular is signed "C. Ciriackes", or Christoffer Ciriackes (1755 - 1758), who in 1828 was a clerk for Messrs. Beatson & Co., merchants and was a witness in a case before the Old Bailey; he also appears in the London Planet of September 20, 1840 as Christopher Ciriackes, provisions merchant at Devonshire Place, London Fields. However, Ciriackes had his own problems as a debtor, as he appears under the heading &#39;Court for Relief of Insolvent Debtors&#39; on November 5, 1840: "Christopher Ciriackes, late of No. 4, Devonshire-place, London-fields, near the Cat and Mutton Tavern, ... out of business ... Provision Merchant and General Dealer". (London Gazette, 13 October 1840, p2270).& & 8vo, printed on cream paper, folded into envelope shape and posted with rubber stamp and seal. The rubber stamp reads "Ing St. Corner Hill". Mailed March 8 and addressed to "Off of the Overseers of the Parish of Mereworth, Kent". Original folds, very faintly creased.

        PACIFIC STEAM NAVIGATION COMPANY: An Official Despatch Signed "John Bidwell" to Mr. Walter Cope, Esq., British Consul in Guayaquil regarding the Project of "Direct Communication between Great Britain and the Western Coast of South America" via Panama].

      London 1836 - London, Foreign Office, 15 February 1836. Folio (ca. 31x20 cm). 2 pp. Brown ink on blueish watermarked laid paper. Secretarial ink numbers on top of the recto. Mild fold marks, otherwise a very good letter. An official despatch from the senior clerk of the Foreign Office John Bidwell to the British Consul in Guayaquil Walter Cope regarding the establishment of a new line of communication between the Great Britain and the Pacific coast of South America via Panama, instead of the long route around Cape Horn. This project was vividly discussed by the British merchants and residents of Lima, Callao and Valparaiso in 1836; and eventually a project of William Wheelwright won, with a proposal of a steamship line between Valparaiso and the Isthmus of Darien, and a mule and canoe transportation further to Chagres on the Atlantic coast. Wheelwright's Pacific Steam Navigation Company was founded in 1838, becoming the first commercial steamship line in the Pacific. In the despatch Bidwell refers to a copy of the letter sent by Viscount Palmerston to the British Consul at Panama on "the subject of opening through that Point, a direct communication between Great Britain and the Western Coast of South America", asking Cope for a report on the "general expediency and practicability of the arrangement and upon the several points enumerated in the enclosure, so far as the same are applicable to the place of your residence, and the district within your jurisdiction". Cope was also required to communicate with "Mr. Consul Turner, with whom will rest in a great measure the carrying this plain into operation". A detailed description the project of the steamship communication along the Pacific Coast of South America, together with texts of the original supplementary documents was published in P.C. Scarlett's "South America and the Pacific, Comprising a Journey across the Pampas and the Andes to which are annexed Plans and Statements for establishing Steam Navigation on the Pacific" (London, 1838, 2 vols.).

In this late work, the philosopher Herbart further expounds and expands on his belief that the primary goal of education is moral education, i.e. the development of good people. He was convinced that through education, individuals can be taught such values as action based on personal conviction, concern for the social welfare of others, and the positive and negative consequences associated with one's behavior. In short, Herbart believed that the development of cognitive powers and knowledge would lead naturally to moral and ethical behavior, the fundamental goal of education.His concern for moral education paved the way for contemporary educators to explore the relationship between values and knowledge, between a well-educated scientist or artist and a moral, ethical adult. contemporary ¾ black leather with mottled blue boards.

      London - Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman, 1836. London - Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman, 1836 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of Sharon Turner&#39;s history of Saxon Britain. With one folding map to volume I. Sharon Turner (1768 1847) was an English historian. His History of the Anglo-Saxons appeared in four volumes between 1799 and 1805. Britain at the time of original publication was involved in wars against France and the idea of the Norman yoke (Anglo-Saxon liberty versus Norman despotism) had been around since the seventeenth century. Turner researched extensively the collections in the British Museum and the manuscripts of Sir Robert Cotton. In doing so he obtained a working knowledge of Anglo-Saxon. The History had a profound impact on historiography for the succeeding fifty years. Robert Southey said that so much new information was probably never laid before the public in any one historical publication. Complete in three volumes. Condition: In amateur green half-morocco bindings. Externally, sound, though with some dampstaining and warping to the boards. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages have some slight browning throughout. With some tidemarks to the endpapers. Overall: GOOD..

        (Movable) An Explanation of the Works of the Tunnel Under the Thames from Rotherhithe to Wapping

      London: W. Warrington, 1836. London: W. Warrington, 1836. Oblong 24mo. 24pp. Illustrated with nine leaves of engraved plates, three of which fold out, and one which has an overlay showing workers within the tunnel. An account of the construction of the Thames tunnel, the first tunnel known to have been built successfully underneath a river. The illustrations include architectural plans and engineering diagrams for the project, as well as a frontispiece showing a completed section of tunnel lit with gas lamps. Diagrams also demonstrate exactly how workers were able to remove earth and lay bricks, and illustrate the endeavor&#39;s progress relative to landmarks above ground. Construction on the tunnel began in 1825 and was finally completed in 1843. At the time that this booklet was published, crews had completed 640 of the planned 1,300 feet of the tunnel&#39;s length, and it is likely that this was an effort to increase public interest and enthusiasm for the project at its midpoint. Some pencil marks and an ownership inscription to covers, light scattered foxing throughout, else about fine in tan wrappers with a pink printed label to the front cover. A clear and concise educational guide to this historical engineering project.

Imprimerie et Fonderie de Fain, à Paris, Rue Racine n°4, Place de l&#146;Odéon.

La première édition des 2 premiers volumes est de 1835, devant le succès remporté par cet ouvrage, il fut réédité en 1836. Une seconde édition, ceci est la présente seconde édition avec une pauvre mention de 5ème voulant surenchérir sur le succès de l'ouvrage. A. de Tocqueville prétendit refusé d'écrire 2 seconds volumes, mais devant le succès remporté, il se remit à la tache et en 1840 parut l'édition définitive en 4 volumes. cette édition fait donc valeur d'histoire avant sa publication complète et traduction aux Etats-Unis où elle rencontra et rencontrera toujours un vif succès depuis les années 1840."

Switzerland is one of the many illustrated travel books produced by Bartlett in collaboration with his friend and fellow traveller Dr. William Beattie; their works enjoyed great popularity in the 19th century.
