ALBERDINGK THIJM, Catharina & Josephus Albertus ALBERDINGK THIJM.
Notice de mes souvenirs d'un voyage à Paris, écrite pour mes chers enfans.Amsterdam, 1838. Small 8vo. Manuscript in French, written in ink in a regular and readable hand on 7 quires of writing-paper, some with a slight green cast.With: ALBERDINGK THIJM, Josephus Albertus. Decemberliedtjen op tantes feest, in 1878. Manuscript poem, signed J.A.Th. 4to. Folded.Loose quires in a contemporary red morocco portfolio with gold-tooled title and ornamental frames on covers, richly gold-tooled turn-ins and silk paste-downs. With 3 pairs of green silk ties. 135, [4 blank]; 4 pp. Album with manuscripts in French and Dutch from the notable Amsterdam literary family Alberdingk Thijm. More than half gives a full account, in French, of a tourist trip to Paris in 1838 by Mrs. Catharina Alberdingk Thijm (1793-1864) and her friends. Without their children they enjoyed the amusement and culture of fashionable Paris. It starts with their departure from Amsterdam, on Monday, 25 June 1838, with a Van Gendt & Loos diligence (stage coach). They changed coaches in Rotterdam at five o'clock in the morning, and at Zwijndrecht boarded a steamer for Paris, still quite a novelty, as the author notes. She makes many interesting comments, for instance quoting epitaphs of tombstones, and at one point noting that the beautiful promenades of the Boulevard d'Italiens and the Rue Richelieu offer no shade, because the trees had been cut down to serve as barricades in the Revolution of July 1830. The account ends with the author returning home after a stay of about six weeks in Paris, and with notes about her inte … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mexico: Imprenta de J. M. Fernandez de Lara, 1838.

Very rare second printing of "Reglamento para el Gobierno de la Provincia de Californias", under which states the laws by which Upper California was governed, until they were superseded by American law in 1850; this second printing of the "Reglamento" occupies pages 121 to 175 and was apparently unknown to Californiana bibliographers. Except for the unprocurable original edition, this was the only form in which the laws were available during their effective period. Wagner cites only the editions of 1784 and 1874; to these Cowan and Zamorano add the Grabhorn reprint. Contains Bennett & Marshall's May 1954 "Californiana" catalogue clipping discussing the rarity of the book, along with a 1946 clipping giving a brief summary of the book. A small Thomas Winthrop Streeter Sale clipping. as well; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; [4], 297, [37(index)], [1(errata)] pp. pages; All shipments through USPS insured Priority Mail.

Devenu roi, Louis XVIII, voulant que le musée qui se trouvait dans la chambre des Pairs redevint important et vivant, décida en 1818 que dans le même lieu serait aménagé un musée des artistes français vivants. Le 24 avril 1818 ouvrait, dans les galeries du palais du Luxembourg, le musée des artistes vivants, doté de 74 toiles d'artistes vivants et de 17 d'artistes anciens, qui furent retirées dès 1821Y étaient alors exposées, entre autres, des œuvres de David (1748-1825), de Gros (1751-1835), de Girodet (1767-1824), d'Ingres (1780-1867) et de Delacroix (1798-1863). Le système prévoyait que dix ans après la mort de l'artiste, les oeuvres dont « l'opinion universelle a consolidé la gloire » soient transférées au Louvre, les autres étant reversées à d'autres institutions ou administrations. Dans un premier temps, les collections du musée du Luxembourg sont presque exclusivement constituées par des achats au Salon. Elles reflètent donc le goût officiel de l'époque faisant la part belle à la peinture d'histoire, aux portraits et aux paysages classiques, selon une hiérarchie des genres bien établie.

Emmons, Ebenezer; Hall, James; Beck, Lewis; Vanuxem, L.;Mather, W.W.
State of New York, 1838. The Geological survey of New York was a five year effort to explore all of New York State and identify its geological, botanical, and zoological features. Although the findings were published in large bound volumes over a number of years at the conclusion of the survey, the scientists also gave annual reports each year which were presented to the legislature. these annual reports are quite uncommon. This is the second of those annual reports, with an introductory transmittal by Governor William Marcy. The state was divided into four geological districts. The most significant report was for the northern district (the 2nd Geological District) which was the responsibility of Ebenezer Emmons of Williams College. During the course of survey work in the second year he arranged with William Redfield to mount an expedition to the highest peak in New York which had been identified by Redfield the previous year in an exploration from the iron works located near Lake Henderson. Joining the expedition was James Hall and the botanist John Torrey (and a few others). They achieved the summit on August 5, 1837. In the report contained in this volume, Emmons proposes the mountain be named Mount Marcy after the governor, and that the mountain range be name the Adirondacks. This is the source of the present name of both features. It is noteworthy that Redfield made no mention of that name in his detailed description of the exploration published in the American Journal of Science. ( I would note that in addition to this report there was also published a limited number … [Click Below for Full Description]

Later 19th-century red-brown half morocco, raised bands, gilt tiles and brown rules to spines, marbled sides and endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. From the library of British Arabist and colonial agent Colonel Samuel Barrett Miles (1838-1914), with printed bookplates noting his widow's bequest of the collection to Bath Public Library in 1920, and associated manuscript shelf-marks and blind-stamps as usual. With half-titles and the errata leaf; original printed wrappers bound in to rear of each volume. Spines sunned, pale spotting, a very good copy. First edition of "one of de Sacy's principal works, the classical treatment of the early history and doctrine of the Druze", which took more than 40 years to complete (Daftary, The Assassin Legends: Myths of the Ismailis, p. 132). "The Druze religion was initially an Isma'ili schismatic movement, organised during the final years of the Fatimid caliph al-Hakim's reign (996-1021) But in time, the Druzes came to represent a separate religious community, beyond the confines of Isma'ilism or perhaps even Shi'i Islam. De Sacy's study of the Druzes dated back to the early 1790s As in other areas of his scholarly endeavours, de Sacy began his study of the Druzes on the basis of their own literature, a sacred scripture [consisting] mainly of the writings and letters of the founders of the Druze religion, notably Hamza and al-Muqtana" (ibid.)

Royal Society of London, London, 1838. John Herschel (1792-1871) invented this form of photographic reproduction as a way to capture data that was beyond the limits of human vision.

1838-1844. 4to notebook, 228pp completed in manuscript. Half black sheep, marbled boards a little rubbed. Manuscript record of the activities of this Oddfellows Lodge from its inception in 1838 to July 10th 1844, giving details of Lodge and Committee meetings and finances. At the opening of the Lodge on October 8th there appear to have been ten members: Bro. William Smith, 'Noble Grand (Master)', Isic (sic) Phillips, Vice, John Hackworth, Secretary, Jeremiah Askew, Warden, Thomas Booth 'Outdoor Tyler', James Ellis 'Inside ditto', John Kirby 'R-H-S to NG', Charles Hickling (crossed through, replaced by William Whittle) 'L-H-S to NG', Thomas Clark, Treasurer, with post of Assistant Secretary left vacant. The officers names are updated to April 7th 1841. Funds were raised from Initiations, Subscriptions, Goods Sold, Fines paid and 'Proposition Money'. As membership and funds increase, services such as a retained surgeon, sick relief and funding for funerals are introduced. By October 1839, almost 100 people were 'invited to attend the anniversary' - an important annual celebration. All is not plain sailing: there is a 'Protest' to the District Officers at Wisbeach (sic) for not giving sufficient assistance, while one of them, P. Gill, charged a fee for 'casual instruction' while he had 'accidentally' passed through Crowland - a charge which was swiftly 'crossed from our bill'. The Lodge also fought against being forced to join a District Funeral Fund having set up their own and against a suggestion that the Lodge join up with Whittlesea. As well as settling internal disputes b … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Texas]: LeGrand, Edwin Oswald
San Augustine County, Tx, 1838. [1]p. Old folds. Shadows from wax seals (the seals no longer present). Tanned, with a few mild instances of ink burn. Overall very good. A scarce oath of allegiance to the Republic of Texas, written and signed by Edwin Oswald LeGrand, a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. The document reads, in full: "Republic of Texas County of San Augustine I do hereby certify that Charles L. Cannon this day personally appeared before me at my offices and took and subscribed to the oath of allegiance in accordance with the Constitution and Laws and seal of office. Given under my hand this the 6th day of June AD 1838. E.O. LeGrand C.J.C.C." There is also a slightly lighter note beneath the text, also in LeGrand's hand, reading "Emigrated the 1st March 1837," which presumably relates to Cannon's arrival in Texas. At bottom right, the document is witnessed, in faint ink, by Joseph Shanks and Thomas P. Payne. Edwin LeGrand, a native of North Carolina, immigrated to Texas from Alabama in 1833, settling near St. Augustine. He participated in the Siege of Bexar and was one of three representatives from St. Augustine to the 1836 Convention at Washington-on-the-Brazos, where he signed the Texas Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, the latter of which he mentions in the present document. From there, he rejoined the Texas Army, participating in the Battle of San Jacinto. For some years after Texas Independence, LeGrand served as chief justice in his home county; the initials after his signature on the present document presumably stand f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edward Gibbon; Henry Hart Milman
Edward Gibbon; Henry Hart Milman, 1838 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A very attractive copy of Edward Gibbon's seminal history of the Roman Empire, illustrated with hand-coloured folding maps. Complete in thirteen volumes, being twelve volumes of 'Roman Empire', and one volume of Milman's 'Life of Gibbon'. ?The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire? has become one of the pillars of non-fiction writing since the first volume was published in 1776. Edward Gibbon embarked upon his greatest literary achievement seven years before it was first published, and he stated that he was often frustrated and tempted to throw it away whilst working on it. Gibbon offers a condensed, detailed, and thorough history of the fall of the Roman Empire, covering a period from 98 to 1590. On the journey he also looks at the history of Europe, Christianity, and the Church. Gibbon has been criticised for his flawed interpretations of various Religions, with his scathing view on Christianity leading the book to be banned in several countries upon its publication Volume I illustrated with one hand coloured folding map, and one folding map.

He describes the different substances in the soil and also the different effects of this epoch on the formation of the landscape in the region around the Black Forest, both depicted in the lithographed maps bound at the end of the book. On pp. 49-51 he also gives an extensive explanation of both maps.Binding very slightly worn, some small stains throughout the book (especially on the endleaves), mostly not affecting the text. Otherwise in good condition. Poggendorff I, pp. 810-811.
