        Einleitung in die technische Chemie für Jedermann. Von Dr. f. F. Runge, ausserordentlichem Professor der Technolgie an der Universität zu Breslau. Mit 150 im Text befindlichen Tafeln, worauf die chemischen Verbindungen in natura dargestellt sind,

      Berlin: Verlag der Sanderschen Buchhandlung (Sander), 1836 - 1 Tafel als Frontispiz, XIV, 570 Seiten mit ca 150 in den Text montierten, farbigen auf Kattun fixierten Verbindungen (Farbmustern). 20,5 x 12,5 cm, zeitgenössischer Halbpergamentband mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel auf blauem Rückenschild, Deckel mit grünlichem Marmorpapier bezogen. Durch Register erschlossen. "Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge (* 8. Februar 1794 in Hamburg-Billwerder; † 25. März 1867 in Oranienburg) war ein deutscher Chemiker. Er studierte von 1816 bis 1822 an den Universitäten Berlin, Göttingen und Jena zuerst Medizin, dann an der Universität Jena Chemie. Er promovierte 1819 zum Dr. med. und 1822 in Berlin zum Doktor der Philosophie mit einer Arbeit über das wirtschaftlich bedeutende Indigo. 1826 wurde Runge Privatdozent und 1828 außerordentlicher Professor für Technologie an der Universität Breslau. 1832 beendete er seine Universitätslaufbahn und zog nach Oranienburg, wo er bis zu seinem Tode lebte, um im Chemischen Etablissement Dr. Hempel, später Chemische Produkten-Fabrik Oranienburg, als Industriechemiker zu arbeiten. Runge war schon zu seiner Zeit bekannt für seine Arbeiten zur technischen Auswertung des Steinkohlenteers, der damals in großen Mengen bei der Leuchtgas- und Koksherstellung aus Steinkohle als Abfall anfiel und oft ins Meer verklappt wurde, was zu einem ernsten ökologischen Problem zu werden drohte. Er isolierte, charakterisierte und benannte Substanzen aus dem Steinkohlenteer, die wichtigsten darunter Kyanol (Anilin), Pyrrol, Leukol (Chinolin), Carbolsäure (Phenol), Rosolsäure (Aurin) – Grundbausteine für chemische Stoffe der späteren, 1865 gegründeten Badischen Anilin- und Soda-Fabrik (BASF). . . Runge führte unterschiedliche Versuche mit Anilin durch. Mit Chlorkalklösung versetzt nahm dieses eine violette Farbe an. Diese Reaktion wird heute noch als Rungesche Chlorkalkreaktion zum Nachweis von Anilin verwendet. Mit Sauerstoff, Säuren oder Basen versetzt bildete Anilin rote Farbstoffe. Hiermit hatte Runge erstmals Teerfarbstoffe hergestellt, die damals aber noch auf keine wirtschaftliches Bedeutung hatten. Das schlagende Quecksilberherz in der heute bekannten Form wurde zuerst von Runge im Jahr 1829 beschrieben. Andere wichtige Substanzen, die er erstmals beschrieb, sind Thymol und die Alkaloide Hyoscyamin und Koffein (auf Anraten von Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, der in Kaffeebohnen ein Gegengift zu Atropin vermutete). Die Urform der Papierchromatographie wurde von ihm entdeckt. In Schulen werden im Chemieunterricht „Bilder, die sich selber malen" hergestellt, die auf seinen Erkenntnissen beruhen. Diese auch „Runge-Bilder" genannten Musterbilder gelten als Vorläufer der Papierchromatographie."

        Thoughts on the elements of civil government, tending to prove as a fundamental principle, on the authority of the jurists - the nature of government - the experience of the principal European states, and particularly that of the British empire, that the lower orders of society, the populace, cannot, consistently with the stability of good government, be suffered to exercise any share of political power or controlling influence over the constituted government. By a British Jurist.

      London. B. Fellowes. Milliken and Son Dublin 1836 - 8vo., v + (3) + 161 + (1)pp., with an errata slip tipped in, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spine simply gilt with raised bands and label lettered in gilt, marbled edges. An excellent copy. [bound with], Second part of Thoughts on Civil Government: shewing, from the existing state of society, and particularly in Ireland, as part of the empire, how far a public physical and moral force, constitutional representation, a religious national establishment, public education for the poor, and unity and indivisibility of the state, are essential principles in good and safe government. Comprising observations on the present state of the Church establishment. The present representation. The National Board of Education. The pending proposed Poor Law. The claims of justice to Ireland. The alleged misgovernment of Ireland by England, &c. &c. By a British Jurist.> London. James Fraser. Milliken and Son, Dublin. 1838. 8vo., vii + (1) + 219 + (1)pp. A fine copy. First editions, the second of which is of great rarity, copies being located by COPAC & OCLC only at N.L. Ireland + Boston Coll. + NYPL + Harvard Law. This extensive two-part treatise was a vigorous but free-wheeling examination of civil government and the liberty of the subject within the law. It was dedicated to the great jurist and sometime Lord Chancellor, John Singleton Copley, Baron Lyndhurst (1772-1863). In the second - Irish - part, the author's viewpoint was that Ireland's and England's futures are mutually dependent. 'If I have spoken to the people of Ireland, as a people>, in a manner less flattering than those do, whose object is to cajole and mislead them for sinister and selfish purposes, my intention> was not to deprive them of the praise so justly theirs, and of which they are justly proud . My intention was but to prevent them from being cajoled by the smooth deceits which are practised daily upon them - from being inflated with unfounded notions of early fame, or present greatness - from putting forward empty claims which they may be unable to support, and clamoring for justice> where justice owes nothing. My main object has been and is, to convince them that they are now>, for their honor and their dearest interests, inseparably become part and parcel of the British empire'. Although neither OCLC nor COPAC identifies an author, a copy that passed through our hands in October 1999 included the suggestion, by an earlier owner, that the author was Thomas Wallace K.C. M.P.

        Syria, The Holy Land, Asia Minor, &c. Illustrated. In a Series of One Hundred and Twenty Views Drawn from Nature by W. H. Bartlett, William Purser, and Thomas Allom.

      - London, Fisher, Son, & Co., [1836-1838]. 4to, 3 volumes. Original publisher's blue watered cloth, richly ornamented and lettered in gilt, all edges gilt; pp. [4], 80; 76; 100, [4]; 3 steel-engraved additional titles, 117 steel-engraved plates by W. Finden, retaining tissue guards, and 2 engraved maps; slightly rubbed and scuffed, light spotting and browning, otherwise a very good set. First edition, in the rarely seen publisher's binding. John Carne travelled through the Ottoman Empire in 1821, publishing Letters from the East in 1826, and was chosen by Fisher to be the author of the present work, which was intended to be the first in a series entitled 'The Turkish Empire Illustrated'. Carne wrote the descriptive text which accompanies each illustration; the majority of these are engraved from views executed by Bartlett during his first journey in the area in 1834-1835, and they are probably his first illustrations to appear in print. Only in the third volume do engravings by other artists such as Thomas Allom appear. Atabey 199; Blackmer 291; RÃ hricht 1690; Weber I, 1125. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

News of Ross's safe return reached Back in April 1833 and he then pursued the expedition's secondary objectives. These were, firstly, to navigate the length of a river supposedly arising in the neighbourhood of the Great Slave Lake and running north to the Arctic Sea, and then, secondly, to map as much as possible of the seacoast. He was successful in both objectives, travelling 7,500 miles in total and traversing the full 440-mile length of the river (known as Thlueetessy' by the Indians). The Great Fish River, as Back named it, has since become known as The Back River. .

        Danse à cloche-pied des indigènes de l'ile de Paques

      Plate from: Voyage autour du monde sur la frégate la Vénus, pendant les années 1836-1839 ... atlas pittoresque. [Paris : Gide, 1841]. Lithograph with hand colouring,172 x 272 mm; in fine condition; framed. The voyage of the Vénus, under the command of Abel du Petit-Thouars, was critical to the establishment of a French colonial presence in the Pacific, as well as for the promotion and protection of French commercial activities around the globe. It achieved its primary objective of establishing a French protectorate over Tahiti and the Marquesas. In 1838 the expedition visited Easter Island. This lithograph by Blanchard, after the original ship board drawing by Louis-Jules Masselot, was included in the monumental Atlas pittoresque volume of du Petit-Thouars' voyage account. It shows a "hopping dance" being peformed by native Easter Island men on the deck of theVénus.

Attractive bookplates of Rudolph J. Taussig, president of the MI, to the front pastedowns. First edition. An important study, which "long remained valuable, as the first nineteenth-century geographical and archaeological account of the region and also as an interesting narrative of travel. It was reissued in 1984 in recognition of its continuing value" (ODNB). A linguistic prodigy, Rich began the study of oriental languages at the age of nine. When he joined the HEIC as a cadet in 1803 he was described by a family acquaintance as "a most extraordinary young man. With little or no assistance he has made himself acquainted with many languages, particularly with the languages of the East. Besides Latin, Greek, and many of the modern languages, he has made himself master of the Hebrew, Chaldee, Persian, Arabic, and is not without some knowledge of the Chinese, which he began to decipher when he was but fourteen." His language skills convinced Charles Wilkins, the librarian to the Company, to persuade the directors to appoint him to a writership in Bombay, and he was attached as secretary to the consul-general in Egypt to "improve his Arabic and Turkish." Rich's ship was burnt, and he spent the next few years travelling the Mediterranean and Near East, including intelligence gathering in the interior of Asia Minor. In 1808 Rich became company resident at Bagdad, "where he remained for six years and during this period became the first European to excavate at the site of ancient Babylon" (Howgego). Ill health forced his return to Constantinople in 1813. "On his return through Asia Minor and Mesopotamia to Baghdad, he resumed his studies and collections, made his second visit to Babylon, and in 1820, being again in bad health, travelled in Kurdistan" (ODNB), the tour which is described in the present work. He died of cholera in Shiraz in 1821. "Parts of his collections were purchased by the trustees of the British Museum, and consisted of about 900 volumes of manuscripts in Arabic, Persian, and Turkish, and a great number in Chaldee and Syriac; a large collection of coins, Greek and oriental; and gems and antiquities dug up at Babylon and Nineveh, including the first cuneiform inscriptions ever brought to Europe

This work was also published in English, French and German, but from the introduction it appears that Owen first wrote it in Portuguese. A second edition in Portuguese appeared in Porto, 1870, but did not contain the complete text (see Canto).Owen (1784-1861), a British officer who served in the Peninsular War, remained in the Portuguese army until 1820, when all foreign officers were dismissed, and then took up residence near Porto. During the subsequent civil wars D. Pedro offered him a position as his personal aide-de-camp, with the rank of general, but Owen declined on grounds that he did not have his own sovereign's permission. Owen wrote several other works on the civil wars, including O Cerco do Porto em 1832 para 1833 (Porto, 1840).*** Innocêncio VI, 331: calling for 14 pp. of errata not present in this copy.

        THREE ORIGINAL PENCIL SKETCHES OF 19th-CENTURY BRITISH COLONIAL BUILDINGS IN PRAMPRAM, GOLD COAST].

      [N.p., but near present-day Prampram, Ghana. between 1819 and 1836]. - Three pencil sketches on wove paper, each approximately 7 x 10 inches. Central vertical crease to each drawing, the first two titled in a contemporary hand in pencil to verso, the third similarly titled below the image. Very good. An attractive set of skillfully-executed original pencil sketches featuring British colonial structures in Prampram, Gold Coast (present-day Ghana) likely between 1819 and 1836. The sketches are titled in pencil, as follows: "Commandant's Residence, Pam Pram, Gold Coast," "Lower Town, Pam Pram from the Upper Town," and "Abandoned Fort at Appolonia from the Beach." The Union Jack flies proudly in the foreground of the sketch of the Commandant's residence. Officially, Great Britain colonized the Gold Coast region from 1867 until the independence of Ghana in 1957, though the British had maintained and controlled forts along the West African coastline since long before 1867. Fort Appolonia, in the extreme southwestern corner of the country, had been a British trading and military outpost from 1691 until 1819, and then again from 1836 onwards, when it changed hands from the British, to the Dutch, then back to the British again. As such, if the artist here labeled Fort Appolonia as "Abandoned," he or she must have sketched the fort during the period it was shuttered between 1819 and 1836. A fascinating trio of original sketches offering unique from a rarely-visualized period in British colonial affairs in West Africa.

        A narrative of the shipwreck, captivity and sufferings of Horace Holden and Benj. H. Nute : who were cast away in the American ship Mentor, on the Pelew Islands, in the year 1832; and for two years afterwards were subjected to unheard of sufferings among the barbarous inhabitants of Lord North's Island

      Boston: Russell, Shattuck, and Co, 1836. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine-. First Edition. Small, slim 8vo: xii,13-133,[1]pp, with wood-engraved frontispiece of tattooing and full-page wood-engraved plate of native canoes approaching the British barque Britannia following p. 114. Original, elaborately embossed brown cloth, upper cover lettered in gilt. End papers spotted, else an excellent, unsophisticated copy. Sabin 32473. Hill 818. Taylor, p. 548. The Mentor sailed from New Bedford under Captain Edward Barnard in 1831. "Holden, a farm boy from New Hampshire, was aboard the whaleship when it was wrecked. Only half the crew survived; they were ultimately captured by natives, who tattooed, starved, and mistreated their prisoners. Holden and his friend Nute were rescued in 1834 by the British barque Britannia . . . This work includes a 'Vocabulary of the language of Lord North's Island' . . . ."

        John Ross, a Cherokee Chief

      - A wonderfully detailed hand colored lithograph with beautiful original color from Thomas L. McKenney and James Hall's historically significant book "History of the Indian Tribes of North America", which was published in Philadelphia in 1836. Son of John Ross Sr., a powerful Cherokee Chief. Both were killed in 1866. This print is from the smaller octavo edition and measures 10.25"x6.75"". Originally this breathtaking series was issued in large folio size, but later McKenney had the images redrawn to a more practical and affordable octavo size.The majority of these octavos are from the early editions (1842-58), published either by J.T. Bowen or D. Rice & A.N. Hart. Those noted as "RR" were issued by Rice, Rutter & Co. between 1865 and 1870. From 1816 until 1830, Thomas McKenney was Superintendent of Indian Affairs and one of a very few government officials to defend American Indian interests. When a large delegation of Indians came to see President Monroe in 1821, McKenney commissioned the fashionable portraitist Charles Bird King to paint the principal delegates, dressed in costumes of their choice. Many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century were among King’s sitters, including Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola. The portraits hung in the War Department until l858, when they were moved to the Smithsonian Institute. Most of King’s original portraits were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian in 1865, so their appearance in McKenney and Hall’s publication is the only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century: Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola were numbered among King’s sitters. Andrew Jackson dismissed McKenney in 1830, but allowed him to have the portraits copied by Henry Inman, so that lithographs could be made from McKenney’s “Indian Gallery.” Additional images were taken from paintings by James Otto Lewis, George Catlin and other artists. James C. Hall, a Cincinnati judge and novelist, contributed an historical and anecdotal text. Both authors, not unlike George Catlin, whom they tried to enlist in their own publishing enterprise, saw their work as a means of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. The portfolio nearly bankrupted McKenney as well as the two printing firms who invested in its publication. But their work proved to be much more valuable contribution than they imagined. Catlin’s paintings of Indians were destroyed in a warehouse fire; and James Otto Lewis’ watercolors burned along with those by King in the Smithsonian fire of l865. The McKenney and Hall portraits remain as the most complete and colorful record of the native leaders who made the long journey to Washington to speak for their people. overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing and staining and a few very small creases and tears.

        Chinese Missionary Pamphlet, "The Perfect Man’s Model."

      Singapore, 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 “country ship” 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 “native missionaries,” 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, written and printed entirely in Chionese as, "The Perfect Man’s Model," was published in Singapore in 1836, is typical of those he distributed on his opium voyage. Color title page lightly chipped, else very good condition in original wrappers.
