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

      American Stationers Company. John B. Russell 1836-1837, Boston - 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.

The board "The utility of windows" is missing as in all copies of any first issue according to Clouzot. This plate was indeed not ready at the time of printing, and the first volumes, especially in publisher's bindings, were thus sold without the board that could be inserted later.Publisher's binding in full icy brown calf era said "At the cathedral".Beautiful and rare copy in romantic Contemporary binding.

        A Mineralogical and Geological Map of the Coalfield of Lancashire with parts of Yorkshire, Cheshire & Derbyshire by Elias Hall.

      [c1836]., Castleton & Manchester, - Hall's fine and rare geological map of Lancashire Large engraved map, fine original hand-colour, dissected and mounted on linen, a few tears to old folds, and some loss to green silk edging, folding into original red cloth slipcase, with black morocco label, lettered in gilt, rubbed and scuffed. One of the earliest large-scale geological maps. In 1834, Elias Hall published the present work, one of the first, if not the first geological map to be published on a scale of one inch to one mile. The map is dedicated to Adam Sedgwick Vice President of the Geological Society, and is coloured in similar fashion to William Smith's 1815 map of England and Wales, with dense colours marking the lower outcrops (bassets) of the coal seams and other units, and with the colour then fading down dip. To the left of map is a column of 15,000 feet of the strata then known (with names taken largely from Smith and Farey) with units ranging from the Bagshot Sand [Eocene] down to the Old Red Sandstone [Devonian] and Transition Limestone [Silurian], with Mica Slate, Gneiss and Granite beneath. The sequence of coals is fairly accurate, but there are minimal details of the Millstone Grit and Carboniferous Limestone. Some sketches of typical fossils were superimposed in the column. The London Clay has a sketch of an elephant, horse, rhinoceros, giraffe and two humans, which are now assigned to the then unrecognised Quaternary. Elias Hall (1764-1853) was a pioneering Midlands and Lancashire geologist. Little is known regarding Hall's early life, he is first mentioned in 1796, in the cash book, of a marble worker White Watson, where he is said to be "Elias Hall, Castleton stone dealer". It wasn't until 1807 with the arrival of John Farey, William Smith's most important pupil, that Hall began to realise the important practical aspects of the geological stratigraphy forwarded by Smith. Over the next ten years Farey and Hall would work closely, with Hall producing several scale models from Farey's surveys. It was through Farey that he would make contact with Joseph Banks, and later George Greenough, president of the Geological Society in London. However, Hall was to be the victim of a bitter dispute between Greenough and Farey, the former having refused to publish Farey's detailed geological survey of Derbyshire. Furthermore, Greenough went on to describe Hall's model of the Darbyshire dales, with its rather garish colours, as more akin to "a tray of Guts and Garbage in a Fishmonger's or Poulterer's Shop". Hall did, however, receive praise from both Joseph Banks, and Charles Koenig, curator of minerals at the British Museum, who when he took a month's vacation in Derbyshire, in 1819, visited Hall in Castleton. There he ordered two of Hall's models of the topography of Derbyshire and Cumberland. Hall continued to publish geological material throughout the 1820s, most notably his works depicting the geological sections of the Lancashire coalfields. It was at this point that he begins to call himself a mineral surveyor. In the 1830's he not only published the present work, was involved in the coal industry, and became a founding member of the 'British Association for the Advancement of Science'. He continued to be active in geological circles right up to his death in 1851. Rare Copac records only three institutional examples: Bristol University, Manchester University, and The Natural History Museum. OCLC recordsa further example at Cambridge University Library. Ownership inscription on slipcase and map of Henry Holt, of Wakefield, West Yorkshire, a civil engineer and member of the 'British Association for the Advancement of Science'.

        Map of the Indian Tribes of North America about 1600 A.D. along the Atlantic; & About 1800 A.D. westwardly

      American Antiquarian Society 1836 - Map. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Image measures 15" x 16.25". Page measures 16.75" x 17" Map. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Image measures 15" x 16.25". Page measures 16.75" x 17". This beautiful map shows the locations of Native American tribes throughout the United States in Canada. Areas are color-coded by tribe and include Eskimo, Athapascas, Algonquin-Lenape, Iroquois, Cherokees, Creek, Choctaw, Sioux, Black Feet, and Pawnee. However, this harmonious appearance obscures a much more troubled history. Distinguishing between 1600 in the east and 1800 in the west, the map speaks to the devastation wrought by the Indian Removal Act of 1830. With unfortunate irony, the use of red to indicate the Seminole Indian Nation points to the violent Seminole War taking place at this moment. Published by the American Antiquarian Society to accompany an article by Albert Gallatin, the map was likely seen at the time as a document of historical change and westward expansion of the kind prompted by Jedidiah Smith's 1820s explorations, which appear on this map for the first time. While it prompts a celebration of Smith's discoveries, it is also a subtle reminder of the impacts of American settlement.The map is in very good condition. Some wear along original folds. Slight tear at center right. Albert Gallatin (1761-1849) was a Swiss-American politician and ethnologist who served in the House of Representatives and as Secretary of the Treasury. Later in life, he founded the American Ethnological Society based on his lifelong studies of Native American culture. He also participated in the founding of New York University.

        Stephen Douglas

      August 5, 1836. Manuscript Document Signed “Dennis Rockwell clk,” “Mat Stacy,” and “Sam’l S. Brooks,” one page, 15.5” x 12.5”. Morgan County, Illinois, August 5, 1836. Tanned at left edge, horizontal tear from right edge in blank area. Fine condition.Docketed on verso “Abstract Votes for / Senator, additional / Senator & Representa / =tives in 1836.” Listing two candidates for “Senate,” two for “additional / Senator,” and 16 for “Representatives” (including misspelled “Stephen A. Doulass”), and each one’s vote in the 15 precincts of Morgan County. Statement beneath the tally: “We the undersigned do hereby certify that the above is a correct abstract of the votes given for Senator, Additional Senator, and Representatives to the State Legislature, at the several Precincts within said county, at the general Election held on the first day of August Eighteen Hundred & thirty six. Certified by us this 5th day of August AD 1836.”Admitted to the bar in 1834, 21-year-old Stephen Arnold Douglas commenced practicing law in Jacksonville, Morgan County, Illinois. Elected State’s Attorney for the Morgan circuit in 1835, it was in this election in 1836 that Douglas began his legislative career, representing Morgan County in the Illinois House of Representatives from 1836-1837; one of his colleagues in the state legislature was Abraham Lincoln of the adjoining Sangamon County. In 1837, Douglas was appointed Register of the Land Office at Springfield. In 1838, the 27-year-old politician was the unsuccessful Democratic candidate for election to the 26th Congress. Appointed Secretary of State of Illinois during the sessions of the legislature in 1840 and 1841 and elected as one of the Judges of the State Supreme Court, he was referred to as “Judge Douglas” by Illinoisans even while serving in the U.S. House of Representatives (1843-1847) and the U.S. Senate (1847-1861).In April 1836, Morgan County held the first county convention ever held in Illinois. The Whigs and the Democrats nominated their slate of candidates. In the August election, the six candidates receiving the most votes of the 16 running for the House were elected: Newton Cloud (1935), Stephen A. Douglas (1926), Joseph Morton (1768), John J. Hardin (1732), Richard Walker (1726), and William W. Happy (1694). The tally of all the candidates by precinct are recorded on this abstract. On December 1, 1836, Douglas resigned as State’s Attorney. When the Illinois House of Representatives convened, 23-year-old Stephen A. Douglas was its youngest member.

Occasional text figure throughout the series. Uniform half calf and marbled boards, blind library stamp on top corners of prelims. including title, and the occasional neat stamp elsewhere, spines rather dilapidated but joints all firm, occasional plate dusty at the edges, overall a good to very good set. *The Annals provide a compendious view of the work of many researchers in Britain and on the Continent, including reports and papers by FARADAY, JOULE, PRIESTLEY, CAVENDISH, BECQUEREL, GAY-LUSSAC, FOX, SNOW HARRIS. Publication predates any of the photographic journals and these volumes are of additional interest for the many photographic references by FOX, GROVE, LETTSOM, HUNT and DAVY, and, of course, DAGUERRE including this copy of the report in the Literary Gazette for 1839 - 'The Daguerre Secret - At the weekly sitting of the Academy of Sciences, on Monday Aug. 19, the process of M. Daguerre, for the formation of photogenic drawings, was, as had been previously announced, communicated to the public. Every body was anxious to hear the secret, every body to catch the mot; all were desirous of learning whether their own scientific conjectures would be confirmed or not . We need hardly say that the most enthusiastic cheers responded from the grave benches even of the academy . THE EDITOR : It seems to us that, beautiful as this process is upon metallic substances, much of the utility of the photogenic copying will be lost, unless the artist and traveller can use paper instead of copper . the images are exquisitely correct, but gloomy-looking. They resemble moonlight pictures done in ink.' SEE Gernsheim #1025 for the LG report - Gernsheim does not list The Annals of Electricity. It is worth mentioning, in addition, the various reports resulting from W. SNOW HARRIS's paper on Lightning Conductors by ROBERT FITZROY and others recounting the effects of having such conductors aboard HMS Beagle : 'Previous to sailing from England in 1831, the Beagle was fitted with the permanent lightning conductors invented by Mr. W. Snow Harris F.R.S. . the Beagle's masts, so fitted, answered well during the five years' voyage above mentioned .'. **TOGETHER WITH : WALKER, Charles V[incent]. The Electrical Magazine.

Occasional text figure, one plate [Armstrong's Hydro-Electric Machine]; 160. Occasional text figure. Contemporary half calf, the spine worn at the edges, contents clean and joints firm. **There are many references within this volume to DAGUERREIAN photography, including some by SIR HUMPHRY DAVY.

        The Anatomy of Melancholy,

      Philadelphia: T. Wardle,, 1836. What it is, With All the Kinds, Causes, Symptoms, Prognostics, and Several Causes of It… by Democritus Junior. With a Satyricall Preface, Conducing to the Following Discourse. New Edition, Corrected: To Which is Prefixed, an Account of the Author. In Two Volumes. 2 volumes, octavo. Original purple cloth, titles to spines in gilt. Spines faded, a few points of wear to spine ends, light rubbing to extremities, foxing to text blocks, spine starting to split vol. 1, a small tear to the top of the front joint vol. 2. A very good pair. First US edition, uncommon in the publisher's cloth. First published in 1621, the title page indicated that this is the "first American [edition], from the thirteenth English edition, corrected." The Anatomy "was one of the most popular books of the seventeenth century. All the learning of the age as well as its humour – and its pedantry – are there. It has something in common with Brant's Ship of Fools, Erasmus's Praise of Folly, and More's Utopia, with Rabelais and Montaigne and like all these it exercised a considerable influence on the thought of the time. Dr Johnson deeply admired it, and Charles Lamb's often and strongly expressed devotion served to rescue the Anatomy from a brief period of oblivion" (PMM 120).

Publisher's original blue cloth, decoratively stamped in blind and lettered in gilt (BAL frame A, cloth H).

Overall still a very attractive copy with bright gilt lettering on the original publisher's binding. Housed in a custom folding box. BAL 5181. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. This essay, originally published anonymously, was one of the first works to establish the principles of the Transcendentalist movement, of which Emerson was a founding member. Transcendentalism arose in response to growing intellectualism and spirituality at the time, and focused on prioritizing the individual experience and intuition, especially in relation to the natural world, over resolute empirical science. In Nature, Emerson explores the relationship between humans and nature, specifically how humans respond to nature's inherent beauty. Notably, Nature became a major influence for later transcendentalist writer, Henry David Thoreau, who drew on his inspiration from Emerson's essay for his famous work, Walden. Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Essays on the principles of charitable institutions: being an attempt to ascertain what are the plans best adapted to improve the physical and moral condition of the lower orders in England.

      London: Longman Rees Orme Brown Green & Longman 1836 - 8vo., xv + (1) + 371 + (1)pp., followed by a 12-page booklist, original green cloth with printed spine label, uncut. A very good copy. First edition: uncommon. Goldsmiths 29623. Kress C.4117. A second part was projected, [but was never published due to the author's illness,] for which there is a prospectus at the end of the volume (pp.367-371). The author (sadly anonymous) of this particularly thoughtful study of the real ends of pre-Victorian charity presents his theme in the context of current government and public policy towards the poor. 'The well being of a large portion of the community . seems so materially to depend on a thorough investigation of what constitutes the real interests of the poor, that it is thought desirable another season should not be suffered to pass without an endeavour to call the attention of the public to a subject of such great importance'. (pp. v-vi). The unfinished work is a collection of nine linked essays, of which the first five attempt to analyse the causes of poverty - 'external', 'moral', and 'on that poverty which arises from individual and blameless misfortune, and on the remedial principles which are appropriate to it'. The remaining essays (p.138 onwards) consider charities for the poor and the relief of indigence, support charities (e.g. loan funds, provident associations, friendly benefit clubs and savings' banks), and, finally, public or government schemes, including cheap food programmes, employment opportunities, home colonization of waste lands, cottage farms, allotments and so forth.

        First Annual Report of the Colonization Commissioners of South Australia to His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies. 1836.... Ordered, by the House of Commons, to be printed, 28 July 1836

      [London, The King's Printer], 1836. Foolscap folio, 40, [2] (endorsement leaf, printed verso only) pages plus a hand-coloured map by Samuel Arrowsmith ('Part of Southern Australia from the 132° to 141° degree of East Longitude', 187 x 293 mm, with an inset map of Australia). Modern buckram lettered in gilt on the spine; three horizontal creases where the report had been folded for filing; first and last pages a little tanned; the endorsement leaf foxed, chipped and torn (but now backed with tissue paper and very stable), with old tape repairs to the tears (and with tiny tape repairs to three other pages); a decent copy with the map in fine condition. Apart from the annual report proper of the Commissioners (under Chairman Robert Torrens), this paper (Number 491) contains twelve appendices, including letters of instructions to leading officials. Wakefield's self-supporting system of colonization, administered by the South Australian Colonization Commission, failed and the commission was dissolved in January 1840 after issuing just four of these reports.
