        SPEECH OF MR. BENTON, OF MISSOURI, ON THE BILL TO SEPARATE THE GOVERNMENT FROM THE BANKS

      Nashville, 1838. Dbd. Benton's signature on titlepage. Light scattered foxing. Very good plus. A speech given by Senator Thomas Benton of Missouri, to the United States Senate regarding the separation of the government from the National Bank. The divorce of government from the banks was an issue which Benton was a staunch supporter of, and which created much discord between the political parties. Andrew Jackson, president and ally of Benton during this campaign, had canceled the bank's charter in 1834, to the chagrin of Senate Republicans. Benton was an advocate for dealing in "hard money," gold coin or bullion, as opposed to paper money, which he believed favored the elite and put farmers and merchants at a disadvantage. These views earned him the nickname, "Old Bullion." Benton is also known for his push to settle the west as sole United States territory and was instrumental in the Oregon Treaty of 1846.

        Oliver Twist; or, the Parish Boy's Progress. By "Boz.

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1838. 3 volumes, octavo. Original reddish brown fine-diaper cloth, spine in compartments with gilt titles, sides each stamped in blind with an arabesque cartouche, yellow coated endpapers. Housed in a blue calf book-form folding case, back gilt with red and green morocco lettering panels, unsigned but apparently by Bayntun (joints rubbed). 24 etched plates by George Cruikshank including the "Fireside" plate (facing p. 313 in vol. III). Half-titles to Vols. I and II, as issued; initial advert leaf to Vol. III. A few marks to cloth, some oxidisation to plates, occasional slight spotting, inner hinges sound, a very good copy in unrestored original cloth. First edition, first issue, with Boz title pages and the "Fireside" plate. Bentley rushed Oliver Twist out in book form before serialization was complete, forcing Cruikshank to hurry the last few plates. Dickens disliked the final "Fireside" plate and asked Cruikshank for a new design, the "Church" plate. He also decided that he no longer wished to be styled "Boz". The first issue, as here, was published on 9 November; the second, with cancel titles, omitting the sub-title and giving Dickens's name as the author, and with the "Church" plate at the end, was issued on 16 November.

        Universal Signals Simply and Intelligibly Displayed; in Symbols of Black and White ... with Geographical Notes of Reference, as connected with Ships, Colonies and Commerce

      London: Thomas Curson Hansard, 1838. Partial proof. Folding frontispiece and plate illustrating signals and numerical correspondence. 8vo. Contemporary blue pebble-grain cloth with a 12 line sample of Ekin's hand laid down on the upper board, book plates to front paste down and verso of folding plate, inner hinges a little weak, some minor marginal damp staining. Partial proof. Folding frontispiece and plate illustrating signals and numerical correspondence. 8vo. NOT PUBLISHED: SIR WILLIAM PARKER'S COPY. OCLC locates just a single copy of this work at the NMM. This must have been a duplicate as it bears not just the NMM's bookplate but accession and deaccession stamps to the front pastedown and front free endpaper. In fact, it is about ten pages shorter than the copy retained by the NMM. The presentation inscription gives some clue: "A Specimen of [Universal Signals] for Sir William Parker Bart G.C.B. &c, &c. No. One. To be read first." What we have here is an early proof, printed in part for Parker's consideration and comments. Ekins has printed the vocabulary for just ten letters here. Parker was a Royal Navy officer who served in the battle known as The Glorious First of June. His career culminated in his brief promotion to First Naval Lord in Russell's ministry and so could comment on Ekins system with some authority. The folding frontispiece plate receives the brunt of Parker's attention. He has crossed out the information at the head of the chart with the simple comment "unnecessary". Perhaps more alarming is his note at the foot of it, "The numbers have no Arithmetical character", which must mark a low point for any numeral. Parker has made other deteletions, corrections and suggestions in the book. This work is likely a development of the system provided in Ekin's previous work, Naval and universal signals, in symbols of black and white ... (London, 1837). Ekins's system used signals to create a locus of 600 possibilities, each of which would change according to one of ten pendants. The lexicon of numbered meanings is appended to the explanatory text. The bulk of the work is comprised of the vocabulary, demonstrating the ever expanding scale of the British Empire. Clearly designed to cope with the influx of new names as a result of the expansion of the British Empire, in addition to standard sailing terms, it includes Botany Bay (illustrated on the plate), Port Adelaide, Simpson's Island, on the equator "the natives are savages", Berbice, Bencoolen, Bay of Plenty (New Zealand), Chebuctoo Harbour (Nova Scotia) etc, etc. Further, there are many notes, often extracts from printed sources, giving additional detail specific to each place. Among the most extensive are the notes on Adelaide and its port. Ekins quotes from private letters from the early settlers Thomas Gilbert and John Barton Hack. Finally, under the letter "q", is a long list of questions demonstrating many of the immediate concerns of the English navy: "Can you supply me with any provisions?", "Is the colony you have just left healthy?", "What news of the Russians?", "Are [the settlers] molested by the natives?", "Does the colonial press flourish?" There is a separate section of questions specifically for whalers. Extremely scarce, the final work was never published.

        [drop-title] El Gefe Provisorio de Guatemala a los habitantes del estado y de toda la republica. Encargado del Gobierno de este Estado, mientras se reune el Cuerpo constituyente que debe decidir de su surete, no debo guardar siliencio en unas circunstancias en que los suscesos de la Republica, que pueden sernos trascendentales, llaman la atencion de los pueblos, cuyo bien estar es el primer deber de la autoridad publica.

      Beginning in 1838 The Federal Republic of Central America was torn apart by civil wars pitting Liberals against Conservatives and the desires of the various states against the central government, with constitutional issues at the heart of the controversy. The Liberals installed Gen. Carlos Salazar in January, 1839, as provisional president of Guatemala replacing Conservative Mariano Rivera Paz. This was during a brief period of peace between the two factions. Here in a decree dated 20 March 1839 Salazar offers to act as mediator for any effort at a lasting peace. No copy traced via WorldCat, COPAC, CCILA, or METABASE; there is no OPAC at the Biblioteca Nacional de Guatemala to be searched.

Good binding and cover. Foxing / spotting throughout. An important book on Texas. Basic Texas Books (151A: "The work begins with an excellent summary of Mexican history from 1821 to 1835, followed by a sketch of Texas history from 1832 to 1835, ending with Cos' retreat from San Antonio. The events of 1836 are described, including quotations from participating Texans and from Mexican accounts, such as Almonte's diary. Of particular value are the account of Santa Anna's capture [and his] confrontation with Houston shortly afterwards. Newell was one of the first to seduce Sam Houston into giving particulars of the campaign... The quotations from participants are of considerable value. The descriptive portions add much to our knowledge of the early Republic.... The account is pro-Texan throughout, but more objective than many other contemporary Anglo-American versions.... Newell describes the towns of the Republic, offers advice to immigrants, analyzes the people of Texas, and projects the future. His predictions, some sage and some ludicrous, are remarkable." Many references: Howes N115; Graff 2010; Sabin 54948; Streeter 1318; Rader 2479; Clark, Old South 3:215.

        Méphis, par Mme Flora Tristan.

      chez Ladvocat, A Paris 1838 - 2 vol. in-8 de (4)-VII-365 pp. ; (4)-390-(2) pp., demi-basane brune, dos lisse orné de motifs romantiques (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale très rare. Mention de deuxième édition au tome II. Entre l'achèvement rédactionnel des Pérégrinations d'une Paria, que l'on peut dater de 1835 ou 1836, et sa publication fin 1837, Flora Tristan a écrit ce gros roman en deux tomes ; c'est le seul ouvrage d'imagination que l'auteur ait sans doute écrit et, en tout cas, publié. Flora Tristan a composé ses personnages pour être les porte-paroles de ses conceptions philosophiques, sociologiques et religieuses. Elle y traite, par héros interposés, tous les problèmes qui lui tiennent à coeur, aussi bien sur le plan individuel que social (P. Leprohon). Bon exemplaire avec des rousseurs.

Après une première partie anatomique et de classification, La Rue décrit physiquement chaque insecte selon son espèce (ordre) ou sous-espèce (sous-ordre). Il donne une description plus détaillée pour les coléoptères et les lépidoptères, s'attardant parfois assez longuement sur les moyens de destruction de certaines espèces, afin d'éviter leur prolifération et les ravages qu'ils produisent (en particulier pour les rostricornes, cylindriformes, filicornes, toutes les espèces de bombyces, les séticornes, phalènes arpenteuses du pin et les pyralies verdâtres). Dans les deux dernières parties, La Rue propose des "Mesures et opérations propres à prévenir la multiplication et les dégâts des insectes", classées selon les mois de l'année, et quelques conseils pour le traitement des bois gâtés par les insectes. In fine, 6 planches en noir montrent 39 figures d'insectes ou de détails anatomiques. Malgré des rousseurs sur l'ensemble de l'ouvrage, bon exemplaire bien relié par Paul Darbray, riche papetier et ingénieur corbeillois, portant l'ex-libris du château du Val Cognatrix et, sur la page de titre, l'estampille de son Château de Saint-Germain-les-Corbeil.
