        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).

        Nature

      Boston: James Munroe & Co., 1836 Boston: James Munroe & Co., 1836. First edition, second state with the corrected pagination on page 94 (no priority). Publisher's original blue cloth, decoratively stamped in blind and lettered in gilt (BAL frame A, cloth H). An about very good copy with light wear and sunning to extremities, front hinge very slightly starting, moderate foxing to text block, and a small hole in the rear free endpaper. 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.

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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Eulogium upon the Life and Character of the Hon. Benjamin Parke; delivered at Indianapolis, on the 1st day of June, 1836, at the request of the members of the Bar

      Indianapolis: Bolton & Livingston, Printers, 1836. Very Good. First edition. Octavo. 16pp. Removed from a bound volume. Faint stamp of a philosophical society, horizontal fold (possibly as mailed), else very good. Eulogy of Parke, important Indiana politician and soldier. On the final leaf the book is inscribed to Joseph Ray by Daniel Drake: "J.B. Ray. Doct. Danl. Drake, City of Cincinnati, Ohio."Drake was an important American physician and social reformer, in 1819 he helped organize the Medical College of Ohio in Cincinnati. Ray was a professor of mathematics and wrote several books on the subject, beginning in 1834 with An Introduction to Ray's Eclectic Arithmetic, the first of a series of six textbooks which became the most popular and widely used American mathematics textbooks of the 19th Century. They also formed the basis for Ray's Mathematical Series of textbooks. As late as 1913, annual sales exceeded a quarter of a million copies a year, and total sales of the arithmetic books alone are estimated at 120 million copies. The success of Ray's Arithmetic series prompted his publisher to seek an author for a set of readers. They chose William Holmes McGuffey, who joined Ray on the faculty of Woodward College in Cincinnati, where he wrote the McGuffey Readers which surpassed even Ray's Arithmetic to become the most popular textbook ever written. OCLC locates seven copies of this pamphlet over two records.

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.

        Collection of Hoffman ephemera Collection from his travels in Europe

      19 items of handwritten ephemera from John Hoffman Collamore (1816-1896), traveler and member of the Columbian Lodge, Boston, MA (Founded by Paul Revere) and Member of the Massachusetts Genealogical Society. All items from 1836 through 1860's when he resided in France and took part in the French Wars of the 1860's. Hand written receipts of purchased items and lodging expenses and a note in Collamore's hand about an itinerary of his travel in Europe. After extensive travel all over the US, Latin America and Europe, John Collamore returned to Boston and lived out the remainder of this life in Boston. John Hoffman Collamore was born in Boston, November 21, 1816. He was the son of Gilman and Maria Eliza (Hoffman) Collamore. The father was an importer and dealer in china and crockery ware. The son had his education in the old Salem Street Academy and in Chauncy Hall School. In his youth he was exceedingly ford of travel, and had a special love for the sea. He made one voyage as a common sailor. He crossed to Europe in the sloop-of-war "Jamestown" and remained there nearly twenty years, tramping over the continent and canoeing up from the great revers, such as the Seine and the Rhone. Having influence with the French government, he was permitted to accompany its army during the Franco-Austro-Italian war, and was an eye-witness of the battles of Solferino and Magenta. Re-crossing the ocean, he traveled through the United States, Mexico, the West Indies, South America and the Hawaiian Islands, always walking when it was possible to do so. At length, feeling the approach of age, he returned to Boston, made himself a home on Columbus Avenue, and settled down amid books and works of art. He was one of the trustees of Mt. Hope Cemetery. He was a well-known member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company. In 1890 he joined the Masonic Fraternity and passed rapidly through all its grades, to the highest. He was very generous in his relations to the order. There is hardly a Masonic organization in Boston or its immediate vicinity that has not received substantial tokens of his regard. In his will he bequeathed sums amounting to $64,000 to the charity funds of various Masonic bodies. Mr. Collamore became a member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society in 1894. He was never married, but left three adopted children. He died in Boston, November 3, 1896. "memorial biographies of the New England historic genealogical society, Towne Memorial fund Volume IX 1890-1897. Boston: Published by the Society 18 Somerset St. 1908" "Brother John Hoffman Collamore (November 21, 1816 - November 3, 1896) - was a traveler and philanthropist. Born in the city of Boston, Mass., November 21, 1816. He received his education first at the Old Salem Street Academy, then entered the Chauncey Hall School. He worked in a Boston counting house for several years, but the urge to travel proved too strong, and he went to sea, being one among the first to volunteer to travel to Ireland to provide relief to those suffering from terrible famine. Brother Collamore became from this time forward a great traveler, and for many years devoted his travels over a great part of Europe on foot. At one time he was absent from the United States for eighteen years. After his return from Europe, he next went to South America, and visited many parts of that then little known continent; also visiting the Sandwich Islands, Mexico and the West Indies. Returning to the United States, he next began a series of tours, during which he visited nearly every state and territory in the Union, including Alaska. At the close of these tours he settled in Boston, and devoted himself to the care and management of his extensive financial interests. He was made a Master Mason in Columbian Lodge, Boston, on January 2nd, 1890, and very quickly became active in Many Masonic organizations, including:; St. Andrew's Royal Arch Chapter, Boston Commandery, Knights Templar, Boston Council, Lafayette Lodge of Perfection, Giles F. Yates Council, Princes of Jerusalem, Mount Olivet Chapter, Rose-Croix, and Massachusetts Consistory. At the Session of the Supreme Council of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction of the United States, held at Providence, R. I., in September 1892, Brother Collamore was elected to the Honorary Grade of Sovereign Grand Inspector-General (33°). Brother Collamore was widely esteemed for his great love for and interest in the welfare of the Fraternity; shown by him not only through his personal activity and zeal in the work, but through the many substantial gifts he has made to the several branches of the Order with which he is identified. Among these, worthy of special mention, is the Columbian Lodge burial plot at the Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA." courtesy of Columbian Lodge A.F. & A.M.
