        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'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'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 'Court for Relief of Insolvent Debtors' 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.

        The History of the Anglo-Saxons from the Earliest Period to the Norman Conquest

      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'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..

      Church Mission Press, Calcutta 1836 - 8vo, pp. [6], 163, [2]; contemporary and likely original full unadorned calf; very good. In Urdu Roman script throughout. 3 in OCLC, none in the U.S. Mir Amman's Qissah-e Chahar Darvesh is in fact a "garden and spring" [bagh-o-bahar]. This is among those few books of Urdu that will live forever, and will always be read with ardor. The very great secret of its popularity is its eloquence and simplicity. As Mir Amman himself has written in his Preface [in the 1858 Forbes translation], "this Tale of the Four Darwesh was originally composed by Amir Khusru, of Dihli, on the following occasion: the holy Nizamu-d-Din Auliya, surnamed Zari-Zar- bakhsh, who was his spiritual preceptor, fell ill; and to amuse his preceptor's mind, Amir Khusru used to repeat this tale to him, and attend him during his sickness. God, in the course of time, removed his illness; then he pronounced this benediction on the day he performed the ablution of cure: 'That whoever will hear this tale, will, with the blessing of God, remain in health'. Since which time this tale, composed in Persian, has been extensively read."

        (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'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'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.

        De la Démocratie en Amérique.

      Librairie de Charles Gosselin 1836 - De la Démocratie en Amérique, par Alexis de Tocquerville, avocat à la cour Royale de Paris, l’un des auteurs du livre intitulé : Du système pénitentiaire aux Etats-Unis. Orné d'une carte d'Amérique, 5ème édition, revue et corrigée. 2 tomes. A Paris, Librairie de Charles Gosselin, rue St Germain des Prés, n°9. 1836. In-8°. Imprimerie et Fonderie de Fain, à Paris, Rue Racine n°4, Place de l’Odéon. Annotations au crayon gris au début du Ier Tome : "Alexis de Tocqueville écrivit "de la Démocratie en Amérique" dans les années 1830. 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."

        The Elysium of Animals: A Dream.

      London: Published by J. Nisbet. and sold in Liverpool by Egerton Smith and Co. 1836 - 8vo, 214 x 133 mms. pp. [ii], viii, [9] - 101 [102 blank], 8, [2], engraved frontispiece by T. Mosses after W. Harvey, including two-pages list of subscribers, one other full-page engraved plate b yby George Cruickshank, contemporary embossed cloth boards, paper label on front cover; front hinge cracked and binding a bit worn, but a decent copy, with the author's presentation inscription on the top margin of the title-page: "Presented to Mrs. Coglan/ with the heartfelt rembrances/ of The Author." Mrs. Coglan is also listed among the subscribers. This was first published in an anthology of prose and verse, The Melange (1835), published by Smith 1774 - 1841), who was a publisher in Liverpool. The Monthly Review for 1836 commented, "That the author has succeeded in his endeavour to exhibit to the reader the odious character of wanton severity towards the lower animals, in a more forcible light than the common observer would discover for himself we admit. He has also put the subject upon such a ground, and treated it in such a shape as will naturally arouse the attention of the young, and the unreflecting. At the same time, we feel that he sometimes pitches his appeals too high, and that thereby he has run the risk of defeating the very object he had in view. For instance - and we care not by what human authority he backs his conjecture - it seems to us quite unnecessary, in pleading in behalf of the inferior animals, to suppose that they may enjoy a future state of existence."

        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'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'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 'Court for Relief of Insolvent Debtors' 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.

        Chinese Missionary Pamphlet, "The Perfect Man&#146;s Model

      Singaope, 1836. Stab sewn 8vo. 60 pp. This pamphlet is a religious tract written by Protestant missionary Karl Gutzlaff, a fascinating character, typical of the sort of opportunist who clustered around the opium business in the old China trade. In the 1830s he traveled as a translator on a British opium trading vessel, known as a &#147;country ship&#148; illegally selling opium for Jardine, Matheson & Co. down the coast of China. Gutzlaff justified his complicity with the pretty rationalization that the journey would be a good opportunity to preach the gospel and distribute Chinese language religious tracts. So, you got opium and Jesus on the same spoon. His moral flaws aside, Gutzlaff was a smart and lucid observer, whose writings offer excellent detail about China and the China Trade in the days leading up to the first Opium War. In his later days he opened a school for Chinese &#147;native missionaries,&#148; several of whom turned out to be opium addicts using their missionary cover and funding for illicit purposes. The fraud exposed, Gutzlaff died a ruined man. Bad karma, I suppose. This tract, The Perfect Man&#146;s Model, published in Singapore in 1836, is typical of those he distributed on his opium voyage. Fine condition in original wrappers, with hand corrections, probably by Gutzlaff or a contemporary associate, in the text.

      Paris - Baudry's European Library, 1836. Paris - Baudry&#39;s European Library, 1836 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce edition of this novel by Sir Walter Scott, which forms part of the Waverley Novels series. According to an introduction that Scott wrote in 1829, he had originally intended to write a story of the supernatural, but changed his mind soon after starting. The book was a huge success, the first edition selling out on the first day of publication. It tells the story of Harry Bertram, the son of the Laird of Ellangowan, who is kidnapped at the age of five by smugglers after witnessing the murder of a customs officer. It follows the fortunes and adventures of Harry and his family in subsequent years, and the struggle over the inheritance of Ellangowan. The novel also depicts the lawlessness that existed at the time, when smugglers operated along the coast and thieves frequented the country roads. Condition: In a half-grained-morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally rubbed, with some wear to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright, though with some heavy spotting throughout. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

        The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club [Pickwick Papers]

      London: Chapman and Hall. London: Chapman and Hall. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION in book form of Dickens&#39;s first great success; one of his most beloved works. "In February 1836, just after the appearance of the two-volume Sketches by Boz, two young booksellers who were moving into publishing, Edward Chapman and William Hall, approached Dickens to write the letterpress for a series of steel-engraved plates by the popular comic artist Robert Seymour depicting the misadventures of a group of cockney sportsmen, to be published in twenty monthly numbers, each containing four plates. They offered Dickens£14 a month for the work, an &#39;emolument&#39; that was, as he wrote to Catherine, &#39;too tempting to resist&#39; (Letters, 1.129). He accepted the commission ... but stipulated that he should be allowed to widen the scope of the proposed subject &#39;with a freer range of English scenes and people&#39;. He then, he later recalled, &#39;thought of Mr Pickwick, and wrote the first number&#39; (&#39;Preface&#39; to the Cheap Edition of Pickwick, 1847). This appeared on 31 March 1836 ... On 20 April Seymour committed suicide but the publishers boldly decided to continue the series, despite disappointing initial sales. Seymour was replaced, after the brief trial of R. W. Buss, with a young artist, Hablot Knight Browne (Phiz), who was Dickens&#39;s main illustrator for the next twenty-three years. In recognition of the fact that Dickens was now very much the senior partner in the enterprise, the number of plates was halved, the letterpress increased from twenty-eight to thirty-two pages, and his monthly remuneration rose to £21. With the introduction of Sam Weller in the fourth number sales began to increase dramatically and soon Pickwick was the greatest publishing sensation since Byron had woken to find himself famous, as a result of the publication of the first two cantos of Childe Harold, in 1812. By the end of its run in November 1837 Dickens&#39;s monthly serial had a phenomenal circulation of nearly 40,000 and had earned the publishers £14,000..." (DNB). First edition, early issue. With additional engraved title (first state with "Veller" on sign), etched frontispiece, and 43 plates by Phiz, Buss, and R. Seymour (most in first state and including the suppressed Buss plates). First state points for text include: "hodling" for "holding" on page 260, "this friends" for "his friends" on page 400, line 21; an imperfect "F" in the word "OF" in the headline on page 432. London: Chapman and Hall, 1837. Octavo, full polished calf by Root, gilt decorated spine with leather spine, gilt ruled boards, gilt floral dentelles, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Very light wear to binding with discoloration to one spine label. Book plate on front pastedown. Very light toning to plates, text exceptionally clean. A beautiful copy.
