Charles Colcock Jones
Savannah: Thomas Purse & Co, 1837. "The fanaticism of a small portion of the Citizens of the free States, on the subject of Slavery, has very inconsiderately, been allowed, in a measure, to check the instruction of the Negroes. But matters are taking the right course, once more. Never let the movements of these men, interfere with you. The command of the Apostle is, "from such withdraw thyself." ADDRESS TO THE SENIOR CLASS IN THE THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY OF THE SYNOD OF SOUTH CAROLINA AND GEORGIA, ON THE EVENING OF THE ANNIVERSARY, COLUMBIA, JULY 10th 1837. Charles C. Jones. Savannah: THOMAS PURSE & CO., 1837. 8vo. Rare.18 pages. "PUBLISHED AT THE REQUEST OF THE CLASS." Modern wraps, stitched; upper cover replicating title page; bit of random foxing, else textblock clear and unmarked. Written during Jones' single two-year break from his ministry serving the Slaves of Liberty County, Georgia from December 1832 until December 1847. In 1837, at the repeated urging of the Synod of South Carolina and Georgia, he put aside his missionary duties to accept the chair of church history and polity in the Presbyterian Theological Seminary at Columbia, South Carolina. "This is a sound and affectionate Address, in which the speaker exhorts his young friends on the subjects of personal piety; knowledge, and the habits necessary to acquire a large measure of it; activity in the ministry; an exclusive devotion to its duties; firm attachment to the doctrines of the gospel; purity of moral character, etc. We are well acquainted with the spirit and views of professor Jones and we rejoice that he i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Se hai dubbi o domande, ti invitiamo a contattarci. [POLONIA - ROMANTICISMO - ESILE] Christien Josef OSTROWSKI 1811-1882 Christien Ostrowski o Kristien Ostrowski (Krystyn Piotr Celestyn Józef Ostrowski), nato il 19 maggio 1811 a Ujazd (dipartimento di Varsavia) e morto il 4 luglio 1882 a Losanna, è un letterato polacco, rifugiato dal 1831 in Europa occidentale, in particolare in Francia e Belgio. Biografia È il figlio del generale e politico polacco Antoni Jan Ostrowski (1782-1845). Nacque in quello che era allora il ducato di Varsavia, uno stato legato alla Francia nell'ambito del sistema napoleonico e che fu quindi diviso in dipartimenti; nel 1815, durante il Congresso di Vienna, il ducato fu attribuito allo zar Alessandro, assumendo tuttavia il nome di Regno di Polonia. Ha completato i suoi studi secondari al Liceo di Varsavia, poi al Collegio dei Fratelli scolopi, e gli studi superiori all'Università di Varsavia. Nel 1830, si recò in Francia e fu testimone della Rivoluzione di luglio, seguita da quella del Belgio, che proclamò la sua indipendenza dai Paesi Bassi. Questi eventi hanno ripercussioni in Polonia, poiché Nicola I, zar di Russia e re di Polonia dal 1825, prevede di inviare truppe russe e polacche per sottomettere il Belgio. Questa è una delle cause dell'insurrezione iniziata il 29 novembre 1830 a Varsavia. Durante questo periodo, Antoni Ostrowski, suo padre, ebbe un ruolo di primo pian … [Click Below for Full Description]

Je n'ai pas osé me présenter chez Mlle Bertin à cause de tous ces retards mais je compte lui écrire dans la quinzaine pour lui faire toutes mes excuses. Vous savez combien je suis occupé et ennuyé de trente-six façons. Ne voilà-t-il pas Fétis qui nous envoie une admirable moutarde après dîner! Et il faudra répondre à cela! C'est embêtant, mais tant pis pour le cher et docte professeur. Tâchez de me justifier auprès de Mlle Bertin, je tiens beaucoup à ce qu'elle n'ait pas mauvaise opinion de moi. Elle peut absolument compter sur mon zèle et mon exactitude désormais. Avez vous vu Lafont? Je désirerais bien que cette affaire put s'arranger. Quoiqu'il m'arrive, gardez moi toujours un peu de cette vive affection que vous m'avez témoigné, et croyez moi bien votre dévoué F.

MOOR, John Henry.
Singapore: [printed at the Mission Press,], 1837. One of the earliest books ever published in Singapore containing the first comprehensive map of Singapore Town and environs Quarto. Original red cloth-backed blue paper covered boards, expertly rebacked at an early date, vestige of the original label. Housed in a custom brown morocco-backed green cloth solander box. Large hand-coloured folding map of "The Town and environs of Singapore, drawn by J. B. Tassin, from an actual survey by G. D. Coleman", with five further folding maps, all but one likewise hand-coloured, all lithographed by Tassin in Calcutta. Skilful paper restoration to folding maps. Slight wear to extremities, boards rubbed and soiled, text-block variably foxed and toned, green pigment on the maps, probably verdigris from the tone, has struck through to the verso quite strongly, other colours remarkably bright; a very good copy indeed. First edition of one of the earliest books published in Singapore, comprising of articles first published in the Singapore Chronicle, Singapore's first newspaper, between 1824 and 1834. The proposed second part was never published. This valuable resource includes articles which would now otherwise be lost, as there are no known surviving copies of the Singapore Chronicle dating from 1824 to 1826. Although reasonably well-held institutionally it is notably scarce in commerce, with just one copy traced at auction. The work provides a detailed account of life in the settlement at that time, as well as travel routes throughout East Asia, trading reviews of various ports and towns, … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOTTA, Paul-Émile.
157 pp.First edition of an account of an 1837 voyage through the Red Sea to Yemen by the naturalist Botta (1802-70), who had served as army physician to Mehmed Ali in Egypt before accepting a commission by the Paris Museum of Natural History to explore the coasts of the Red Sea. His expedition, lasting from 1836 to 1839, was much aided by the fact that he was fully fluent in Arabic. He visited Jeddah before landing in Hodeida in 1836, proceeding to Bet el-Fakih, Sebid, and Hais, Djebel-Ras, Maammara, Cahim, Djennat and Haguef, visiting Tihama and the highlands under the protection of Ibrahim Pasha and Sheikh Hussein Bin Yahia. “Botta's foremost deed in the Yemen was the ascent and exploration of the 3006 metre Djebel Sabor, south of Taizz, a climb which Forskal had vainly desired to undertake ... Botta was the first to provide details on the cultivation of and trade in the drug khat” (cf. Henze).Old ownership stamp erased from title-page, otherwise an excellent copy, appealingly bound.

LOW, Charles Rathbone.
[4], 302 pp.Rare first American edition of the tales and anecdotes from lieutenant Charles Rathbone Low (1837-1918) in the Indian Navy, which was published at the same time in London. Lieutenant Low was engaged in suppressing piracy and the slave trade in the Indian Ocean, China Sea, Persian Gulf, Red Sea and the East Coast of Africa, but as an historian and author of naval fiction and non-fiction he also wrote on the British navy, important officers of the navy and the voyages of the Indian navy round the world. Although these tales are very often classified as one of Low's three fiction works, the book's anecdotes actually describe real naval events, retold as heroic tales of adventure in the Indian navy. A number of the stories take place in the Persian Gulf, where the Indian navy had to combat piracy. One of the most remarkable and dramatic stories is the attack by Jowassamee (Al Qasimi) on Low's ship, the “Nautilus”. It is important to note the British misinterpretation here of the Al Qasimi, the people and rulers of Sharjah, now one of the United Arab Emirates, as “pirates”. This episode is included in a later, more scholarly work by Low, which is also his best-known work: The history of the Indian navy (1877). Low also describes the conflict with John Chinaman and some Malay pirates. While the book presents these events as a series of tales, it also serves as a report on the Indian navy's voyages under lieutenant Low and shows the British perspective on events concerning these seas, the Persian Gulf and the Al Qasimi.With owner's inscription in ink from Charles E.

BAYARD, Émile.
An extensive collection of proof impressions of all 12 illustrations drawn by Émile Bayard (1837-1891) and engraved by Jules Massard (1848?-1891?) and Eugène Michel Joseph Abot (1836-1894) for the 1885 edition of Alphonse Daudet's Fromont jeune et Risler aîné. Moeurs parisiennes. This novel, first published in 1874 was a great critical and popular success, quickly making Daudet's name famous. As a result it went through many editions, some luxuriously illustrated. The definitive illustrations were published by Louis Conquet in Paris in 1885 in a limited edition (500 copies) of the novel with the present twelve masterly plates "gravées à l'eau-forte" after Bayard. The present set has 4 to 8 impressions of each plate, most or all in 4 or more states. All have the engraved signature of the artist in the image area, but only two have any further engraved text. The first proof of the first plate has "E. Abot aqua f d'après E. Bayard" and the last proof of the same plate has "Jules Massard. sc.", both in the plate below the image. The engraving is usually credited to Massard, but it would appear from this early proof that Abot began the work and Massard finished it. The last proof of the eleventh plate has the pencilled initials of the artist, "E. B." below the image, apparently in his own hand.One example of one print is on wove paper, mounted on the leaf of the book, but all others are printed directly on the leaves. Their laid paper is watermarked "MBM" for Morel, Bercious and Masure, who developed machines for the Canson paper mill to make this so-called "mould-made" paper fo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leipzig, Wilhelm Engelmann, 1837. Zwei Bände in 8vo; X, XXXII, 461, (5) Seiten; X, (2), 830, (2), mit 6 Falttabellen; neues Halbleder und neue Deckelbezüge im Stile der Zeit über den originalen Deckeln, Ecken verstärkt, Vorsätze erneuert, Rückenvergoldung und goldgeprägte Rückentitel und Bandnummern, originaler Schnitt, innen sehr sauber und frisch, schöne Exemplare. Erste Ausgabe der zweiten und umfassenderen deutschen Übersetzung von On the principles of political economy and taxation 1817. Die deutschen Übersetzungen von 1821 und 1837-38 sind aktuell seltener als die englische Erstausgabe von 1817. David Ricardo (1772-1823) kam durch Börsengeschäfte zu Ansehen und Reichtum. Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations weckte seine Begeisterung für die politische Ökonomie. Ab 1809 trat er mit eigenen Schriften zu ökonomischen Tagesfragen an die Öffentlichkeit. On the principles 1817 ist sein Hauptwerk. Er folgt darin der Wertlehre von Adam Smith und erklärt die gesellschaftlich notwendige Arbeitszeit als einzige Ursache des Wertes der Waren. Bei der Preislehre hat Ricardo eine andere Sicht als Adam Smith, und er teilt auch nicht Smith’s optimistische Einschätzung der wirtschaftlichen Entwicklung. Die Ausweitung der Beschäftigung infolge steigender Akkumulation trägt die Neigung zur Stagnation in sich, wenn es der Wirtschaft nicht durch technischen Fortschritt gelingt, die steigenden Nahrungsmittelkosten zu kompensieren und durch konsequenten Freihandel sich gleichschrittlich mit dem Wirtschaftswachstum billige Nahrungsmittel aus ausländischer Produktion zu erschließen.

Jane Berkeley-Calcott
Dublin : George Folds, 1837. An incredibly rare, unique copy of the second edition of the poems by the Irish child prodigy Miss Berkeley Calcott (Jane Berkeley Calcott [later Gaskin]), published in 1837 and likely amended by the author or her patron. Stanzas by Miss Berkeley Calcott 1837 Dublin : George Folds Pamphlet in plain paper wraps, 56pp. Page 43/44 has been removed, losing part of 'Thoughts on an Infant's Grave' and an unnamed poem (which has also been crossed out of the contents page with a very penetrative ink). Authorial correction to page 47. A little creased, otherwise bright Only one copy of the original edition of 1834 is held by the British Library (and digitised by them), published when the author was aged eleven. That edition had ten poems, whilst this extremely rare second edition published three years later contains 36 poems and a new preface, and is institutionally unrecorded. Not in Copac or Worldcat. Calcott later moved from Ireland and married John Gaskin, the rector of St. Cuthbert's in Bedford. Overseas buyer contact me for P&P quote.

SHELLEY, Mary & Percy Bysshe.
[24 South Audley Street:] , 2 May 1837. Single leaf (235 x 185 mm), thrice folded. Some glue residue to blank portion from having been tipped into an album, a few other very faint marks, very good condition. Mary writes tersely to her stepsister, in response to a request, enclosing a clipped signature of her late husband ("Yours ever faithfully - Percy B. Shelley"), "I hope the person to whom you give it will appreciate it as it deserves - or I should not like to part with it", she adds. The relationship between the women had been, and continued to be, awkward. At the time of this exchange Mary was living in uncomfortable rented rooms in South Audley Street, still dependent on Sir Timothy Shelley's whim, but Percy Shelley's reputation was on the rise, his atheism forgotten, his radicalism beginning to look far-sighted, and his poetry widely read and discussed. Claire meanwhile was usually in Paris, working as a governess. It was perhaps to impress some contact there that she wanted a sample of Shelley's signature. In the event, Claire did not give the signature away to another person. Famously, in her later years she became the guardian of a significant amount of valuable Shelley memorabilia and the target of insincere suitors on account of it, the situation that inspired Henry James's novella, The Aspern Papers.
