        A Review, Financial, Statistical, & Commercial, of the Empire of Brazil and its Resources: Together with a Suggestion of the Expediency and Mode of Admitting Brazilian and other Foreign Sugars into Great Britain for Refining and Exportation.

      - London, Effingham Wilson, 1837. 8vo. Slightly later dark green pebble-grained cloth, spine lettered in gilt, yellow endpapers; pp. viii, 151, large folding table, others in the text; very light marginal wear, title and last leaf a little spotted due to offsetting from fly-leaves; provenance: from Gloucestershire County Library with their stamps and shelfmarks; contemporary engraved armorial bookplate G. R. Porter inside front cover. Very rare first edition of this economic study of Brazil at the beginning of the Victorian era, with the aim of attracting British investment to the recently established independent country, 'now possessed of a well-ordered, economical, and popular Governement' (p. viii). Johann Jakob Sturz was born in Frankfurt (1800) to a Bavarian civil servant, who had 12 children. He became a merchant, and driven by wanderlust did business in Mexico, before he was hired by a London gold mining company active in Brazil. Disgusted by the treatment of the black workforce, he quit this good position after two years. He then campaigned for free trade with Brazil, linking the country with the world economy, against slavery, and after long negotiations and after having invested much of his own wealth, a British steam ship company gained access to Brazilian rivers and ports in 1838. He devoted the rest of his life (he died in 1877) to philanthropic causes, and campaigned against cruelty to animals. All of his books and pamphlets are of great rarity. Borba de Moraes 841.

Doppeltafeln, 3 Halbledereinbänden der Zeit mit reicher Rückenvergoldung. This three volumes are uniformly bound in half calf, richly gilt decorated. Ex library copy (Yale Medical Library). A small hole in the title page of vol. 1, but a clean and well preserved, nice set.THE GREAT ANDRAL EDITION. The Publication of this work revolutionized the study of diseases of the Thoracic Organs. R.Th.Laennec (1781-1826) was something much more than the discoverer of auscultation. He was a distinguished anatomist and great clinician. The invention of the stethoscope was remarkable, but even more remarkable was what he himself did with the instrument. Gabriel Andral (1797-1876), clinician and teacher, was one of the outstanding figures in the golden days of 19th century Parisian medicine. The works by Andral are clinically significant and characteristic of the best medical practice more than a century ago. cf. Garrison & Morton, No 2673 + 3219 Bedford No. 457

        Stemmi e intitolazioni di Sua Maestà Imperiale Reale Apostolica Ferdinando I.° Imperatore d'Austria.

      Milano, dall'Imperiale Regia Stamperia, 1837. - Folio (230 x 340 mm). (20) pp. With 4 lithographed plates (one folded, measuring 48 x 59 cms). (Includes): Wappen und Titel Seiner kaiserlichen königlichen Apostolischen Majestät Ferdinand des Ersten, Kaisers von Oesterreich. (20) pp. Small folio. Publication of the official titles and styles of Ferdinand, who had become emperor of Austria in 1835 and would be crowned King of Lombardy-Venetia in 1838 (a mere formality, anticipated here). Gives the long, middle, and short titles in both Italian and Latin, a detailed Italian description of Ferdinand's coats of arms (also in its full, medium, and small versions), and the Latin titles to be used in as seal legends with these coats of arms. All three versions of the arms are illustrated; in addition, a diagram explains the extremely detailed Great Coat. - A single ink annotation (to the explanation of the arms of Trieste); a tear to the folding illustration of the Great Coat has been repaired. Very rare: apart from the copy in the Austrian National Library, catalogues list a single copy in the U.S. (University of Illinois) and two in Italy (Biblioteca della Fondazione Biblioteca San Bernardino and Biblioteca della Fondazione Bruno Kessler, both in Trento). - Included is the slightly smaller German version, not illustrated, but prefixing a publication of the official decree of 23 September 1836, and giving the titles in Latin and German, the heraldic description of the various titles (annotated in red crayon and ink, taking particular exception to the description of the arms of Bregenz as turnips: "Nonsense! They are ermine tails"), and the seal legends. - Some brownstaining and a few edge flaws to the German publication. OCLC 883395896.

      Manuscript, pen and brown ink, with pencil, on paper (Good, chipping along edges with minor loss, old folds), 39 x 20.5 cm (15.5 x 8 inches). - [‘Eastern Frontier’, Cape Colony], 1837. An original manuscript sketch map of the Grahamstown-Great Fish River region of South Africa, the strategically critical ‘Eastern Frontier’ of the Cape Colony, made immediately in the wake of the Sixth European-Xhosa War (1834-6). - This intriguing manuscript sketch map was made by an English settler, in 1837, and depicts the ‘Eastern Frontier’ region of the British Cape Colony, in the immediate wake of the Sixth European-Xhosa War (1834-6). Importantly, and as will be explained further, the map features the locations of several of the conflict’s key battles. The map’s scope embraces the "Sea" (Indian Ocean) coast roughly between the mouths of the Kareeg and Great Fish Rivers, and extends inland to include Grahamstown, a good stretch of the Great Fish River, a tract of the Keiskamma River, and further inland to a point just beyond Beaufort. Most of the territory depicted, being the lands west of the lower Great Fish and the Kat Rivers (known as the Albany and Beaufort Districts), is implicitly assumed to the part of the Cape Colony, inhabited largely by recently arrived English settlers. The territory beyond the lower Great Fish and Kat Rivers is labeled ‘Kafir Territory’, also known as Kaffreria, being the lands of the Xhosa, a nation of skilled warriors who had long resisted European encroachment. It is important to note that ‘Kafir’ is today considered a derogatory term for Black Africans, although curiously the word originally comes from an Arabic term for "infidel". The English settlements along the Eastern Frontier of the Cape Colony were anchored by the centres of Grahamstown, Bathurst and Beaufort, as shown here. However, the map features a wealth of other information, revealing the region to be a military frontier, including the locations of current and former British army outposts, such as "Fort Brown" and "Fort Willshire (abandoned)" (a forward position located in Xhosa territory); numerous trading posts; .

        Des muthvollen Schiffcapitains Jean Francois Galoup, Grafen de la Perouse, höchst merkwürdige Entdeckung eines sechsten Welttheiles jenseits des 85sten Grades nördlicher Breite, und Wunderbare Schicksale der kühnen Mannschaft seiner Fregatte La Boussole in diesem überraschenden Himmelsstriche jenseits der bis jetzt für unübersteigbar gehaltenen Eisberge und Eisfelder. Aus den auf der Bricer-Insel aufgefundenen Reisetagebüchern und Manuscripten zusammengetragen und bearbeitet von Dr. Reidcliff. Aus dem Englischen übersetzt von F. C. Bindemann.

      Ferguson III, 3026 Howgego V, Imaginary Voyages, L1. - Eine erste Ausgabe dieser sehr seltenen imaginären Reise erschien 1837 es dürfte sich um eine originäre Schrift handeln, der Verfasser ist wohl der als Übersetzer angegebene F. C. Bindemann. - Die 1788 im Pazifik spurlos verschwundenen Expeditionsschiffe unter Jean-François de La Pérouse gaben Anlass zu einer Reihe wilder Spekulationen über die Gründe eine bald ausgeschickte Rettungsaktion endete tragisch, die beiden Kapitäne starben und die Schiffe kehrten 1793 ergebnislos nach Frankreich zurück. Erst 1828 fand Jules Dumont dUrville Teile der Wracks von La Pérouses Schiffen vor der heute zu den Salomonen gehörenden kleinen Insel Vanikoro. Die einheimische Bevölkerung war noch im Besitz vieler Gegenstände der beiden Schiffe. Als die Neuigkeiten Europa erreichten, wurden zahlreiche, Authentizität vorgebende Schilderungen über den Verbleib der Mannschaft publiziert. Vorliegende Schrift ist eine der letzten Publikationen, die mit Enthüllungen aufzufahren versucht. Allerdings verarbeitet auch noch Jules Verne in seinem Roman "20.000 Meilen unter dem Meer" das Thema Jack London beschreibt in seinem Roman Jerry, der Insulaner einen Inselhäuptling der Salomonen, der den abgeschlagenen und nach Südseeart präparierten Kopf einiger der Expeditionsmitglieder besitzt und darüber Betrachtungen über den Tod anstellt. - Broschur fleckig und mit kleineren Randdefekten, am Rücken lädiert. Tls fleckig, einige Blätter stärker betroffen.

        Autographed Letter, Signed "Secy. Mahlon Dickerson," to Nicholas Biddle, President of the Bank of the United States, responding to Biddle's proposal to make funds available for Navy Pensions

      Washington, D.C., 1837. 1-1/2 pages, pen and ink on paper. Folio. Old folds, else fine. 1-1/2 pages, pen and ink on paper. Folio. A PROPOSAL TO FUND NAVY PENSIONS. A chronicle of the short-lived Bank of the United States and it's continued involvement in US Navy pensions. After the demise of the Second Bank of the United States in 1836, a result of the historical "Bank War" between US President Andrew Jackson and Bank President Nicholas Biddle, Biddle attempted to resuscitate the institution as a commercial bank chartered by the State of Pennsylvania. The former bank's stock holders (excepth the US govenrment) voted to transfer the old bank's assets and liabilities to the new bank, which made it difficult to disentangle the dealings of the defunct bank with the newly stae-chartered one. This letter, from Secretary of the Navy, Mahlon Dickerson, discusses arrangements for The Bank of the United States to fund Navy Pensions and is an example of it's continued involvement with the US Government after the Second Bank of the United States charter had expired. Reading in part: "I have received your letter of the 19th inst. and agree to the arrangement you propose, that for the funds you may place at the disposal of this department for the payment of Navy Pensions, credit shall be given on the Bond from the Bank of the United States chartered by the Legislature of Pennsylvania to the United States..." Written at the onset of the Panic of 1837, Biddle would fail to replicate the success he experienced as President of the Second Bank of the United States, and resigned as President in 1839. The Bank of the Unites States failed in 1841. Biddle faced financial ruin and was arrested for fraud but was acquitted before his death in 1844. Born in Hanover Township, New Jersey, Mahlon Dickerson (1770-1853) was a cavalry veteran of the Whiskey Rebellion, who would go on to be elected Governor of New Jersey, serve as US Senator, receive two appointments as Secretary of the Navy, and be confirmed as a judge for the United States District Court of New Jersey.

Volume I: pp. xlviii, 407, with 4 maps and plans and 9 colored plates illustrating 18 uniforms; Volume II: pp. xl, 580, 210 (Namentliche Liste sämtlicher in der Königlich Deutschen Legion dienender Officiere zur Zeit der Auflösung des Corps im Jahre 1816)., with 4 maps and plans, frontis illustration of a monument, and a number of tables (some folding). Ex-German military library, in early marbled boards (rubbed), with worn paper spine labels. Library bookplate on each front pastedown and ink stamps on various pages, including each plate. Mild to moderate foxing throughout, the worst being on the single-page maps and facing pages. Volume I (20 cm) trimmed closer than Volume II (21 cm) at the bottom margin, resulting in a size difference between the two volumes. Bindings sound, hinges intact. Fair to good overall. North Ludlow Beamish (1797-1872) was an Irish army officer, military writer, and antiquary. "He was educated at the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, and in November 1816 obtained a commission in the 4th Royal Irish dragoon guards, in which he purchased a troop in 1823. In 1825 he published an English translation of a small cavalry manual written by Count F. A. von Bismarck, a distinguished officer then engaged in the reorganization of the Würtemberg cavalry. Beamish's professional abilities brought him to notice, and he received a half-pay majority in the following year. While attached to the viceregal suite in Hanover he published Lectures on … Cavalry (1827), a translation of another work by Count von Bismarck, with original notes, in which he suggested various changes soon after adopted in the British cavalry. He also published History of the King's German Legion (2 vols., 1832-7), which was highly regarded" (DNB).

        [FREYCINET] Manuscript letter signed by Jacques Arago

      Single sheet (250 x 270 mm), folded vertically, the blindstamped initials 'J.A.' impressed into the paper, with a short message written in ink in the hand of Arago's secretary (Arago had lost his sight in 1837), signed in pencil in the frail hand of the aged Arago himself and dated 9 October 1853. The letter is addressed to 'The editorship of the Press' (publication unknown), thanking them on behalf of his family for their condolences on the death of his brother, the mathematician, astronomer and politician François Arago. Jacques Arago sailed with Freycinet on his 1817 voyage in the Uranie, and later wrote and illustrated the chronicle of the expedition in Promenade autour du monde (1822). Original correspondence from this important figure is scarce.

After founding a school near Hobart and acting as tutor to Governor Arthur's children, Ross was appointed joint Government Printer with George Howe and from June 1825 he and Howe published the Gazette together, until Ross took over sole printing duties in February 1827. This almost complete run of issues of the Gazette for the year 1837 contains a vast amount of information on the development of Hobart and its society of the period.
