CHANNING. WILLIAM E(llery).
FIRST BRITISH EDITION. 8vo. (7.1 x 4.4 inches). 172pp, i (publishers advert). A very good, uncut copy in the publishers brown morocco grained cloth with printed paper label to the spine. Several gatherings unopened. A little chipping to the label but overall a very good clean copy of this uncommon First UK edition. Channing (1780-1842) initially held a common American belief about the inferiority of African people and slaves and felt that that once freed, they would need overseers. The overseers (largely former slave masters) were necessary because the slaves would lapse into laziness. Furthermore, he did not join the abolitionist movement because he did not agree with their way of conducting themselves, and he felt that voluntary associations limited a person's autonomy. Therefore, he often chose to remain separate from organisations and reform movements. This middle position characterised his attitude about most questions, although his eloquence and strong influence on the religious world incurred the enmity of many extremists. Channing had an enormous influence over the religious (and social) life of New England, and America, in the nineteenth century. Towards the end of his life Channing embraced immediate abolitionism. His evolving view of abolitionism was fostered by the success of British abolition in the British West Indies in 1834 and the lack of the expected social and economic upheaval in the post-emancipated Caribbean.

[Robinson, R.P.]
New York, 1836. 24pp. Dbd. Two small, faint institutional stamps on titlepage, noticeable foxing throughout. Good. A rare publication relating to the infamous murder of lady-of-the- night Ellen (sometimes reported as Helen) Jewett in New York in 1836. McDade records eleven separate publications related to the Robinson- Jewett tragedy. This sketch of the alleged murderer, Richard P. Robinson, was one of the earliest printed, "issued before the trial" according to McDade. "The 1836 murder of Ellen Jewett, very beautiful prostitute in a house of ill fame in New York, was one of the sensations of the times. Robinson, a nineteen-year-old youth and sweetheart of the girl, was identified as her companion of the evening. Miss Jewett had been struck with a hatchet, and an attempt had been made to burn the premises. Robinson was acquitted in the face of a seemingly strong case. The trial was a field day for the newspapers, and James Gordon Bennett himself had a peep at the famous bordello and wrote an account of his visit" - McDade. OCLC records fifteen total copies of this work in institutions; McDade records an additional two copies, one of which is the present example from the library of the New York Bar Association. McDADE 820. SABIN 72167. OCLC 22038222, 79379354.

CHYZER, Cornelius and Wladyslaw KULCZYNSKI.
BMC NH, p. 350; Pierre Bonnet, Bibliographia araneorum, p. 306; not in Horn & Schenkling; Nissen, ZBI. Rare first and only edition, in Latin (with the preface to each part also in Hungarian/Magyar), of an extensive and thorough study of Hungarian spiders, with about 700 figures illustrating details of spider anatomy (mostly showing parts of the exoskeleton). It describes about 1000 spider species in XXII numbered families, with the genera numbered per family and the species per genus. The Hungarian physician Cornelis Chyzer (1836-1909) in Budapest and the Polish professor of zoology Wladyslaw Kulczynski (1854-1919) in Krakow are best known as arachnologists. Their present collaborative book was their great masterpiece. They note in the title and preface that many of the species had been collected and described by the Belgian painter and arachnologist Léon Becker (1826-1909), who published his account of Belgian species in four volumes, 1882-1896. With a presentation inscription from the author Cornelis Chyzer to the German Arachnologist Ludwig Koch (1825-1908) and library stamps. Paper browned as usual. Water stains in the plates to vol. I and in the foot margin of the plates to part 1 of volume II, those to part 2 of vol. II slightly browned. Otherwise in good condition. Rare standard work on Hungarian spiders.

Bolton & Livingston, Printers, Indianapolis, 1836. 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. [Attributes: First Edition]

AUSTRALIAN GAS-LIGHT COMPANY
Sydney: Printed by H. Bull, Colonist Office, Sydney, September 1, 1836. Four foolscap folded leaves, some wear, as usual, at folds. Scarce early prospectus, printed in Sydney, for "the lighting of this large, increasing, and opulent metropolis with Gas." The Board includes H.C. Wilson, Thomas Shadforth, A.B. Spark and Rev. Ralph Mansfield as Honorary Secretary. Although the colony had a significant number of free settlers, its population was still being augmented by transported convicts. A census held on 2 September 1836, the day after the prospectus was published, put the population of the County of Cumberland (Sydney and suburbs) at a little under 40,000. Although the eight miles of piping initially proposed was to light "George Street only", the Directors foresaw the re-investment of profits to develop the system, claiming "TWO YEARS INCOME WOULD MORE THAN RE-FUND THE ENTIRE OUTLAY"!. The prospectus invites investors to imagine 'the pleasure of perambulating its streets, when thus brilliantly illuminated'. Its other promised advantages were increased safety for night-time pedestrians and increased night-time trade. The Colony was in transition. The Australian Gas-Light Company went on to build a gasworks to manufacture gas from coal on the eastern shore of Darling Harbour, and supplied this gas to the central city. It later built other gasworks and extended its network of pipes across the suburbs.

HUMBOLDT, WILHELM von - [THE PHILOSOPHY OF SPEECH - PMM 301]
Berlin, 1836. 4to. Bound with the original patterned end-papers in a later red leather binding with raised bands and gilding to spine. First and last leaves with a bit of light brownspotting. XI, (1), 511 pp. ¶ First edition of this classic study of human language, which founded the metaphysics of language - Humboldt's philological testament that founded the theory of the structure of language as the expression of the character of the language-speakers. Up until Humboldt and his "On the Diversity of Human Language..." [i.e. the present work], language was viewed as a dead means of communication, as a mere thing. With the present work, a completely new approach to language is founded, one that forms the basis of modern linguistics and upon which linguistic thought and philosophy is now based: "Language is not a finished thing at rest, but something that at every moment emerges, comes into being, and perishes; it is not so much a dead product, but far more a continuously active production... Language is the forming organ of thought." (from the present work). <br><br>Humboldt died while preparing his magnum opus, on the ancient Kawi language of Java, which thus remained a fragment, but which was published the year after his death (1835), in 1836. The present work, the most important of his productions and the final statement of his lifelong study of language, served as a general introduction to this. This lengthy foreword was completed by Humboldt himself and after his death edited by his younger brother, the great traveler and naturalist A … [Click Below for Full Description]
