Elliott, of which frigate his brother was at the time a Lieutenant. He passed his examination in 1830; obtained his commission 1 Sept. 1837; and being appointed, 21 Oct. following, to the Wasp 16, Capts. Hon. Dudley Worsley Anthony Pelham and Geo. Mansel, was the only Lieutenant on board that sloop at the taking of Sidon, and attack on the fortifications of St. Jean d'Acre, 26 Sept. and 3 Nov. 1840. He was subsequently invested with the command – 30 Aug. 1841, of the Pantaloon 10, lying at Portsmouth – and 21 June, 1842, and 19 Dec. 1843, of the Sydenham and Pluto steam-vessels, in which he appears to have been employed on the Canadian Lakes, and on the West India and Home stations. He was attached, since 30 June, 1845, as Additional-Lieutenant, to the Victoria and Albert steam-yacht, Capt. Lord Adolphus FitzClarenee. Agents – Stilwell." - See Wikisource **** "William M. James (1780 – 28 May 1827) was a British lawyer turned naval historian who wrote important naval histories of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, 1793–1815. Although little is known of his early life, William James was trained in the law and began his career as an attorney. He practised before the Supreme Court of Jamaica and served as a proctor in the Vice-Admiralty Court of Jamaica from 1801 to 1813. In 1812, when war broke out between Great Britain and the United States, James was in the United States. Detained by American authorities as a British national, he escaped to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1813. This experience interested him in the War of 1812 and he began to write about it, particularly defending the reputation of the Royal Navy and pointing out the factual errors and excessive claims that American reports made against the Royal Navy. His initial literary efforts seem to have been letters written to the editor of the Naval Chronicle under the pen name 'Boxer'. In 1816, he published his first pamphlet, An inquiry into the merits of the principal naval actions between Great Britain and the United States. This pamphlet caused a controversy in the United States, leading to much American criticism of James's views. James went on to write his six-volume Naval History of Great Britain, 1793 – 1827 in reaction to American accounts of the War of 1812. Similar in approach, this work was highly critical of the history that his contemporary Captain Edward Pelham Brenton had written on the subject and led to controversy between them that is reflected in successive editions of their works. James's legal background would influence his approach to obtaining evidence. He attempted, therefore, and managed to board American warships and speak to their crews, to verify their characteristics at first hand. In this pursuit he claimed, for example, that the USS Constitution was not only much larger, but also more heavily manned and armed, than HMS Guerriere – contrary to previous American claims that the ships had been equal at the time of their engagement. More alleged erroneous American assertions were dealt with. Equally, James was not shy to criticise British officers as well, where he saw fit. James died in South Lambeth, London, in 1827, but his works continued to be published. Captain Frederick Chamier expanded the work in 1837 to include the Burmese War and the Battle of Navarino. The book remained a major reference work and was so often consulted that the Navy Records Society published an index to the history in 1895, which is now available on the Internet..." - See Wikipedia .

        South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register. Volume 1, Number 2, Adelaide, Saturday 3 June 1837

      - Folio, [6] pages printed in four columns, unbound as issued. The vertical fold of the first leaf is a little holed, just slightly affecting the printed surface on the verso; essentially a very good copy in crisp condition. THE FIRST NEWSPAPER PRINTED IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA, very rare indeed, and considerably more so than the London printing of the first number of 18 June the previous year. G.H. Pitt, in 'The Press in South Australia, 1836-1850' (1946), suggests a print run of about 100 copies, of which no more than a handful can have survived. The contents are of great interest, including proclamations issued by the Governor from December 1836 to May 1837; an account of his arrival and installation; a record of the first land sale, with the names of the buyers and prices; and the inaugural address of the Chief Justice, referring at some length to relations with the Aborigines.

        Voyages up the Mediterranean and in the Indian Seas;

      London: James Fraser,, 1837. with Memoirs, compiled from the Logs and Letters of a Midshipman. Embellished with Engravings from Original Drawings. Octavo (194 × 116 mm). Original black morocco by Fraser of Regent Street, title gilt to the spine, blind panels to the boards, all edges gilt, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. Engraved frontispiece on India paper, mounted, and 6 other similar plates, including a portrait of the author. A little rubbed at the extremities, neatly recased, head and tail of the spine repaired, ink ownership stamp of the Deacon Grant Farm to the front free endpaper, light toning, a very good copy. First edition, an uncommon - five copies on COPAC, OCLC adds just four more, Singapore National Library, Duke, NYPL, and the Providence Athenaeum - and highly attractive work. A contemporary review from the The Literary Gazette and Journal of the Belles Lettres, Arts, Sciences, &c tells of the genesis of the work, and gives a flavour of it; "This is a volume of peculiar interest; the original matter possessing the charm of ingenuousness and genuineness rarely met with in observation on foreign parts … 'This volume,' says the advertisement prefixed, 'is faithfully compiled from the logs and letters of the midshipman whose memoirs it professes to preserve. Mr. William Robinson was an enthusiast in his profession, and, at an early age, fell a martyr to his zeal … His career, though brief, was honourable; and he yet lives in the influence which his memory continues to exercise, over those who shared with him the adventures of a naval life. The present work was projected to perpetuate the benefit of his example; and the editor has aimed at no meaner end than to make it, so far as he had ability, a manual for the conduct of a sailor who would rise in the noble profession of his choice.'" Robinson had been intended for the law, but ill health forced a change of plan, and he was placed as a middie on board the Adventure with Capt. W. H. Smyth, a friend of his father's, taking part in Smyth's surveys in the Mediterranean. Following Robinson's death from dysentery in Singapore, his papers were edited with Smyth's assistance "recording for the benefit of naval aspirants, his private virtues and professional merits." The plates, finely engraved by W. Faithorn after Robinson's own drawings include views of the Naval Yard at Trincomalee and the bridge at Singapore.

        Letter from the Commandant of the Marine Corps to the Secretary of the Navy

      Washington, DC, 1837. Unbound. Very good. One-page personal letter (8" x 10") to the Secretary of the Navy, Mahlon Dickerson, signed by Archibald Henderson, the Commandant of the Marine Corps., at the Marine Barracks at 8th and I Street in Washington, DC The letter is in nice shape with only some light soiling; Henderson's handwriting is legible. Although he was not the first Commandant of the Marine Corps, Henderson was the most important. He held the position for 38 of his 53 years on active duty. He entered the Marine Corps in 1806 and served as Lieutenant aboard the USS Constitution during her famous victories in the War of 1812. As Commandant, he thwarted President Andrew Jackson's attempt in 1829 to remove the Marine Corps from under the control of the Navy and combine it with the Army. This letter, written eight years later, attempting to obtain a commission in the Marine Corps for the son of an important Captain in the Navy, reflects his continued concern "to draw closer the ties that unite the Corps to the Navy." The naval officer who asked Henderson to obtain a commission for his son was no doubt Captain Thomas Holdup Stevens, a hero of the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812 and then the commander of the Washington Navy Yard located a scant three blocks from the Marine Barracks. At the time Steven's son, Thomas Holdup Stevens, Jr. had only recently begun attending the U. S. Naval Academy. Apparently Secretary Dickerson refused the request as Thomas, Jr. went to a distinguished career in the Navy, commanding several gunboats and iron-clad monitors during the Civil War. He retired as a Rear Admiral in 1881 after commanding the Pacific Squadron. Outside of correspondence held in federal archives, letters from "The Grand Old Man of the Marine Corps" are very scarce. As of 2017, OCLC shows not institutional holdings; no others are for sale in the trade, and there are only two auction records listed at the Rare Book Hub and Worthpoint.

        BENTLEY'S MISCELLANY 34 VOLS 1837-1854

      Richard Bentley. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1837-54. First Edition. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; 6" x 9"; This is a run of the first 33 volumes of this important 19th-century literary journal, plus volume 35. Here many works by famous authors, such as Oliver Twist [which sold at auction for $3,625- for a Bentley's copy], Joseph Grimaldi and others, appear in print for the first time. Poe's Duc Dd L'Omelette appears as a first appearance but Fall of the House of Usher is not, however, a first appearance and indeed may be a pirated edition. Bentley's Miscellany was an English literary magazine started by Richard Bentley. It was published between 1836 and 1868. Already a successful publisher of novels, Bentley began the journal in 1836 and invited Charles Dickens to be its first editor. Dickens serialized his second novel "Oliver Twist" but soon fell out with Bentley over editorial control, calling him a "Burlington Street Brigand". He quit as editor in 1839 and William Harrison Ainsworth took over. Ainsworth would also only stay in the job for three years, but bought the magazine from Bentley a decade later. In 1868 Ainsworth sold the magazine back to Bentley, who merged it with the Temple Bar Magazine. Aside from the works of Dickens and Ainsworth other significant authors published in the magazine included: Wilkie Collins, Catharine Sedgwick, Richard Brinsley Peake, Thomas Moore, Thomas Love Peacock, William Mudford, Mrs Henry Wood, Charles Robert Forrester (sometimes under the pseudonym Hal Willis) , Frances Minto Elliot, Isabella Frances Romer, The Ingoldsby Legends and some of Edgar Allan Poe's short stories. It was also the first place to publish cartoons by John Leech, who became a prominent Punch cartoonist. Editors: Albert Richard Smith - Albert Richard Smith was an English author, entertainer, and mountaineer. , Charles Dickens - Charles John Huffam Dickens was an English novelist, generally considered the greatest of the Victorian period. Dickens enjoyed a wider popularity and fame than had any previous author during his lifetime, and he remains popular, having been responsible for some of English literature's most iconic novels and characters. Many of his writings were originally published serially, in monthly installments or parts, a format of publication which Dickens himself helped popularize at that time. Unlike other authors who completed entire novels before serialization, Dickens often created the episodes as they were being serialized. The practice lent his stories a particular rhythm, punctuated by cliffhangers to keep the public looking forward to the next installment. The continuing popularity of his novels and short stories is such that they have never gone out of print. Dickens' work has been highly praised for its realism, comedy, mastery of prose, unique personalities and concern for social reform by writers such as Leo Tolstoy, George Gissing and G. K. Chesterton; though others, such as Henry James and Virginia Woolf, have criticised it for sentimentality and implausibility. , William Harrison Ainsworth - William Harrison Ainsworth was an English historical novelist born in Manchester. He trained as a lawyer, but the legal profession held no attraction for him. While completing his legal studies in London he met the publisher John Ebers, at that time manager of the King's Theatre, Haymarket. Ebers introduced Ainsworth to literary and dramatic circles, and to his daughter, who became Ainsworth's wife. Ainsworth briefly tried the publishing business, but soon gave it up and devoted himself to journalism and literature. His first success as a writer came with "Rookwood" in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of 39 novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881. Ainsworth died in Reigate on 3 January 1882. An approximately 100 pound treasure trove of famous authors and artists. INCLUDES [Dickens, Charles. ] Oliver Twist; or, the Parish Boy's Progress by Boz, With Other Tales and Sketches, from Bentley's Miscellany, and the Library of Fiction.

        A Voyage round the World; including an Embassy to Muscat and Siam, in 1835, 1836, and 1837. [together with:] ROBERTS, Edmund. Embassy to the Eastern Courts of Cochin-China, Siam, and Muscat; in the U.S. Sloop of War Peacock, David Geisinger, Commander, during the Years 1832–3–4.

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Blanchard,[second work:] New York: Harper & Brothers, 1837-8 - 2 volumes, octavo (220 134 mm; 215 138 mm). Uniformly bound in black half morocco, title gilt to spine, flat bands sparingly tooled, marbled sides and endpapers, red sprinkled edges. Contemporary booklabels of P. C. Brooks, perhaps Peter Chardon Brooks, New England merchant and underwriter, who made his fortune in the East India trade. Very slight shelf-wear, both volumes with some foxing, but overall a very handsome pair. Half-title bound in to the first-named. First editions. Individually uncommon, perhaps Ruschenberger the more so, and together here offering a very full record of important early American trade negotiations in the Middle and Far East. A naval surgeon, "Ruschenberger sailed to the East for the purpose of obtaining information and negotiating and securing treaties of friendship and commerce with Eastern Powers. Rushenberger describes his journey to the dominions of the Sultan of Muscat and Oman, to Ceylon, India, Java. Siam, Cochin China, the Bonin Islands, the Hawaiian Islands, California, and Mexico" (Hill). The principal in the negotiations with these foreign powers was to be Edmund Roberts who had "formed an intimate acquaintance" with the Sultan of Oman when on a trading expedition to Zanzibar in 1827, and had persuaded his "kinsman through marriage, Senator Levi Woodbury [Andrew] Jackson's secretary of the navy" to promote the embassy (DAB). Roberts was appointed as special agent of the United States to negotiate treaties with Muscat, Siam, Cochin China and Japan if practicable; "his mission, however, was to be secret, and he was given as 'ostensible employment' the position of clerk" to Commander Geisinger. Roberts successfully concluded treaties with Siam, and with Muscat, which treaty included a "most-favoured-nation" clause, and remained the basis of US–Omani relations until 1958. He returned to the East to continue his work in Cochin China, China, and Japan, but died of fever at Macau in 1837. Although not noted in the title, Roberts contains around 120 pages of close description of the culture and business practices of China; Ruschenberger has a 75–page section specifically on "The dominions of the Sultan of Muscat", which at the time included "all the coast and islands of the Persian Gulf including the pearl fishery and islands of Bahrain, as far as Sinde, on the eastern side" (p. 82). This section, one of the most extensive in the literature of this period, also provides information on the early tribal history of the bahrain region, Gulf trade, and Sultan's alliance with the Indian Navy against the "Joassames" now the ruling Al Qasimi family of Sharjah. Ruschenberger's Voyage is also an important Hawaiian source, some of this material being omitted from the London edition of the same year, as also the "aspersions" of the British (noted by both Sabin and Howes). Forbes 1123; Hill p. 533; Howgego R33; Howes 514a; Sabin 74197 for the first-named: the latter, Cordier 2113; Forbes 1123; not in Hill; Howgego R19; not in Lust; Sabin 71884.

Translated from the Latin, newly revised and supplied with necessary annotations at Kievo-Pecherskaia Lavra]. (Epistola Samuelis Maroccani ad Rabbi Isaacum)

      V Sinodal'noi Tipografii, Moscow 1837 - Third Edition. Octavo (21 × 14 cm). Contemporary marbled wrappers; VII, [2], 95 pp. Good or better; light soil to first two pages; binding starting; wrappers torn along spine. Third edition of this famous anti-Semitic treatise, a medieval Christian apologetic purportedly written in the eleventh century, but most likely written around 1339 by Alphonsus Bonihominis. "The author, a converted Jew, collects passages from the Old Testament in support of Christianity. The medieval Latin text which purports to be translated from an Arabic original by the Dominican friar Alphonsus Bonihominis in 1339, had a tremendous diffusion and was frequently printed and translated. Since no Arabic original of the text has ever been found, Steinschneider suggests that Alphonsus composed the letter himself, and merely imitated a different work by a Jew Samuel written in support of Islam after his conversion to that religion" (Paul Oskar Kristeller, Platonism, 188). Specifically, scholars assume Bonihominis was inspired by the Ifham al-Yahud by Samuel of Fez, another anti-Semitic treatise by a Jewish thinker who converted to Islam after seeing Muhammed in a prophetic dream. The work was first translated into Russian by hieromonk Varlaam (Glovatskii) and published in St. Petersburg in 1778; further editions followed in 1782, 1786, and 1827 before the present one, which is stated to be the third edition. All editions are scarce: KVK, OCLC show a copy of a 1827 edition at Brandeis and an 1855 copy at the NYPL. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Stamperia Reale, Turin 1837 - Complete with half-titles, 18 folding plates, errata and all blank leaves. Uniformly bound in contemporary calf-backed marbled boards. An exceptionally fine and clean set. First and only edition of Avogadro's major work, and the first systematic compendium of theoretical physics to be published in Italy. This monumental work was expanded from the author's memoir, which appeared in the Journal de physique (1811). The famous hypothesis which bears his name provided the key to distinguishing between atoms and molecules. Avogadro's law still governs chemical research, and is an indispensable aid in the determination of the molecular weights of many chemical compounds (see Zeitlinger).Avogadro (1776-1856) held the first chair of mathematical physics in Italy. He was largely responsible for the introduction of the metric system in Piedmont, but he and his work were for the most part unknown to the rest of Europe. Complete sets of this work are now of great rarity. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Translation of the Anglo-Saxon of Beowulf with a copious glossary, preface and philological notes by John M. Kemble.

      London: William Pickering, 1837 - Small octavo (168 x 100 mm). Late 19th century reddish-brown half morocco by Blackwell, decorative gilt spine, marbled sides, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Scattered minor foxing. An excellent copy. First complete edition in modern English, in the translation by the philologist and historian John Mitchell Kemble (1807-1857), "the poem's first great English editor" (Thomas E. Shippey in A Beowulf Handbook, 1998, p. 154). From the library of the novelist Charles Kingsley, inscribed at the head of the title page: "Charles Kingsley 1847, Eversley Rectory"; also inscribed by Kingsley's son Maurice on the opposing blank: "Maurice Kingsley 1884". Kingsley had a keen interest in Anglo-Saxon literature and in 1848 he "obtained a part-time appointment as professor of English at the newly formed Queen's College for Women in London, where he gave lectures on Anglo-Saxon literature and history, among other topics" (ODNB). He mentions Beowulf directly in his preface to The Heroes, or Greek Fairy Tales (1856): "Now, while they were young and simple [the Greeks] loved fairy tales, as you do now. All nations do so when they are young: our old forefathers did, and called their stories 'Sagas.' I will read you some of them some day—some of the Eddas, and the Voluspà, and Beowulf, and the noble old Romances"; refers to"the grand old song of Beowulf" in The Roman and the Teuton (1864) and Hereward the Wake (1866), his novel of resistance to the Norman conquest, has an Anglo-Saxon hero (Kingsley's son Maurice contributed an introduction to the edition of 1898). Kemble's version of the Anglo-Saxon original (The Anglo-Saxon Poems of Beowulf) came out in a "premature edition" (ODNB) in 1833 - premature because "in the preface [he] discussed the poem entirely as history. On 17 July, 1834, however, Kemble wrote to his hero Jacob Grimm [this edition's dedicatee] in great excitement recording his discovery of two manuscripts giving a version of the story of 'Scyld Sceafing'. From these Kemble drew far-reaching conclusions about the poem's deepest structure. and in a postscript to the preface of his 1837 translation of the poem explicitly retracted his conclusions of 1833". This translation was issued as a pendant volume to the Anglo-Saxon original, which is virtually unprocurable, being produced in an edition of only 100 copies for private distribution. The public second edition of 1835 and this translation into modern English are reasonably well represented institutionally but are both decidedly uncommon in commerce. An important edition of this Anglo-Saxon masterpiece with a very appealing provenance. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Sha-Ha-Ka: A Mandan Chief

      E.C. Biddle, Philadelphia 1837 - Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20.25" x 14" Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Sha-Ha-Ka was known for his friendship with the explorers Lewis and Clark who met him in the villages near the Missouri River in what is now North Dakota. The chief was persuaded to go to Washington D.C. with them where he was subsequently paraded around eastern cities as a typical savage from the Wild West. Overall toning and offsetting. Light scattered foxing and staining. Slight tape residue along top edge. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.
