        Beschreibung und Abbildung eines neuerfundenen künstlichen Fußes, zum Ersatze des Ober- und Unterschenkels, .... (Sp.713-736, 2 gefalt. lith. Foliotafeln mit 30 Figuren).

      Kunst- und Gewerbebl. Bay., 24/1-52. - München, November 1838, 4, XVII, (1), Sp.681-744, 3 gefalt. lith. Tafeln, Pappband der Zeit feines Exemplar. Erstdruck dieser "Beschreibung und Abbildung eines neuerfundenen künstlichen Fußes, zum Ersatz des Ober- und Unterschenkels, von Margarethe Caroline Eichler aus Berlin worauf sich dieselbe am 13. Jänner 1835 ein Privilegium auf 10 Jahre im Königreiche Bayern ertheilen ließ."Beschreibung der von der Berliner Bandagistin 'Demoiselle' Margarethe Caroline Eichler erfundenen Prothese. Sie erhielt am 23. November 1833 ein Patent zum Verkauf von künstlichen Beinen.Hier gibt Sie eine ungekürzte Beschreibung und anschauliche Darstellung der Prothesen, die leichter, gelenkiger und haltbarer waren als die herkömmlichen.Margarethe Karoline Eichler stellte Normen für den Bau von Kunstbeinen auf, die nicht nur internationale Beachtung fanden, sondern für lange Zeit auch als richtungsweisend von der Medizin anerkannt wurden. Die von ihr konstruierten Mechanischen Knie- und Fußgelenkteile stellten interessante technische Lösungen dar. Frau Eichler begann dann später auch (1836) künstliche Hände aus dünnem, federhartem getriebenen Neusilberblech herzustellen." Die Tafeln zeigen in 34 Figuren den Aufbau und Mechanismus des künstlichen Beines nebst Fuß."Hat auch die Eichler in Bezug auf den äusseren Mechanismus ihrer künstlichen Beine von anderen bereits bekannt gewordenen Vorrichtungen der Art das Beste entlehnt, so ist doch das Princip des inneren Mechanismus, namentlich dessen Einfachheit, Anordnung, Zugänglichkeit und Zuverlässigkeit ganz neu und eigenthümlich. Denn die schon von Ballif benutzten Spiralfedern wirkten nicht durch Ausdehnung, sondern durch Zusammenziehung, auch nicht auf zwei Gelenke zugleich und hielten einander nicht gegenseitig in Schranken, weshalb deren Actionen auch zu plötzlich und gewaltsam erfolgen mussten. Die von Heine angewandten Schneckenfedern und Zugriemen, bei welchen das Princip eines mit der Muskelaction übereinstimmenden Antagonismus schon berücksichtigt worden war, ermangelten wieder der einfachen Construction, zugänglichen Lage und sicheren Befestigung, um selbst den Absichten ihres eigenen Erfinders ganz entsprechen zu können. Dabei erklärt die Eichler aber doch in ihrer Schrift "weit davon entfernt zu sein, behaupten zu wollen, ihr künstlicher Fuss sei keiner weiteren Vervollkommnung fähig' allein, sie fügt auch hinzu, dass bis jetzt gewiss noch kein zweckmässigerer erfunden und dargestellt worden sei - bis zu ihrer Zeit gewiss nicht.Die Beschaffungskosten, welche 30 bis 40 Thaler betragen, sind zwar bedeutender als bei den künstlichen Füssen von Dornblüth, aber geringer als die der künstlichen Füsse v. Rühl's und Ballif's. Die Reparaturkosten können bei der einfachen und dauerhaften Construction nur sehr unbedeutend gewesen sein und sich, wie bei der künstlichen Hand der Eichler, ebenfalls nur auf den Wiederersatz einer Spiralfeder oder Darmsaite und demnächst noch auf die Erneuerung der Bepolsterung ausgedehnt haben, was bei der Zugänglichkeit des Mechanismus leicht und augenblicklich ausführbar war, wenn man sich von diesen Gegenständen einen kleinen Vorrath hielt. Endlich verdient noch der Vorschlag der Eichler, dem Amputationsstumpfe durch das Umlegen einer Binde ein dickeres Fleischpolster zu verschaffen und ihn so vor Druck und vor schmerzhaften Hautspannungen zu bewahren, alle Anerkennung und eine sorgfältige Beachtung bei dem Gebrauche eines jeden künstlichen Gliedes. - Das Gewicht des künstlichen Oberschenkels betrug mit allem Zubehör 4 Pfund 15 Loth, das des Unterschenkels 3 Pfund 17 Loth." O. Karpinski, Studien über Künstliche Glieder (Berlin 1881), pp.104-115Callisen XXVII, p.435

        Lord Brougham's Speech in the House of Lords, on Tuesday, the 20th of February, 1838, for the Immediate Emancipation of the Negro Apprentices.

      London: James Ridgway and Sons, 1838 - Quarto (275 x 211 mm), pp. [VI], 50. Near contemporary blue half calf, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, marbled paper boards, brown endpapers, edges sprinkled red. With the armorial bookplate of Sir Robert Peel, Drayton Manor to front pastedown and his signature to the title page. A few neat ink corrections made to the Latin excerpt on page 43. Extremities lightly rubbed, corners bruised, slight offset from oxidised bookplate, internally good with a little foxing, overall a bright, fresh copy. First edition, one of 20 quarto copies, from the library of Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel, with his bookplate and signature. It is unknown whether these quarto copies were in addition to an octavo printing; the second edition, published later the same year, was printed in octavo. Considering their proximity and active participation in the same parliamentary debates on the subject, as well as the small print run, it is possible that this was a presentation copy given to Peel by the author. They corresponded throughout the 1840s and 1850s and many of their letters to each other are housed in the National Archives. This is Lord Brougham's eloquent indictment of the apprenticeship system in the British Colonies, delivered on 20 February 1838, which highlighted the abuse of the system, particularly as it was operating in Jamaica, and strove to regulate working hours and extend the protective jurisdiction of the colonies' special magistrates and governors. "On 28 August 1833, the Abolition of Slavery Bill, which had been passed by the British parliament, received the royal assent and became law It provided that slavery, as a legal status, would cease to exist throughout the British colonial empire on 1 August 1834 and that slave children under the age of six at that time would be immediately freed. As for the other ex-slaves, for them a new institution would be created—apprenticeship. They were to be registered as apprenticed labourers for a period of four years in the case of domestic servants and six years in that of field hands [and] slave-owners would be compensated for their losses by a grant of twenty million pounds" (Gross, p. 560). Led by Brougham, abolitionist pressure, however, accelerated the timetable and Brougham pushed for a more immediate end date, proposing to amend the Abolition Act by substituting 1 August 1838 for 1 August 1840. Although Peel presented seven petitions in favour of the abolition of the apprenticeship system in March 1838, during his speech on 28 May he argued in the House of Lords that it would be imprudent to terminate it abruptly, which he believed might make it impossible to properly compensate planters for their loss. The colonial assemblies chose to end apprenticeship themselves, and the system was effectively abolished later that year. OCLC locates just five copies of the title worldwide (BL, Senate House, 2 in Australia, 1 in the Netherlands), Copac adding one more at Sheffield. Goldsmiths' 30674 (8vo edition); Hogg 2403 (second edition). See G. T. Buchanan, Life of Henry, Lord Brougham (J. S.

        Travels in Arabia

      London: John Murray,, 1838. 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue-green fine-diaper cloth, gilt titles and interlocking rings and arabesques in blind to spines, covers decoratively panel-stamped in blind, yellow surface-paper endpapers, fore edges untrimmed. Lithographic frontispiece to each volume and 5 similar plates, most by Louis Haghe from drawings by the author, 5 maps including a large folding route map, tables to the text. Engraved armorial bookplate of English financier Frederic Straker (1862-1941) and contemporary and later ownership inscriptions to front pastedowns. Spines slightly faded, and skilfully relined, covers very lightly rubbed, a few trivial marks, superficial wear to tips, inner hinges strengthened, front free endpapers lightly chipped along fore edges, browning along plate margins, short closed tear to folding map stub, sometime partially tape-repaired verso, a few letters lightly abraded on vol. 1 p. 9, the sense unimpaired, discreet pencil corrections to vol. 2 pp. 379 and 385, vol. 2 sig. 2D uncut at lower outer corner, otherwise a few trivial spots. Remains a very good copy indeed, a well-preserved example of the uncommon original cloth. First edition of this important Arabian travel account: the entire first volume is dedicated to the author's travels in Oman and the Gulf, and includes vivid eyewitness reports of the tribes making up the ruling families of today's United Arab Emirates. Wellsted (1805-1842), a British naval officer in the Bombay Marine, was "for a considerable period" (vol. 1 p. 252) employed in the survey of the Persian Gulf initiated after the siege of Ra's al-Khaymah in 1819. In 1830 he was appointed second lieutenant of the Palinurus and undertook an important survey of the Red Sea and the Gulf of 'Aqabah, described in the second volume; in 1833-4 he surveyed the southern coast of Arabia and visited Socotra, before, in 1835, being granted permission to travel in Oman "to investigate the manners and customs of the people of inner Oman, to locate the important towns and oases, and to investigate the topography of the country" (Marshall, p. 23). Travelling inland from Muscat he reached Samad, where he met Lieutenant Francis Whitelock, another Indian Navy officer. The pair criss-crossed inland Oman before local instability forced them to return to Shinas on the coast, from where Wellsted sailed back to India and Whitelock travelled overland to Sharjah. Chapters 16 and 17 of the first volume are exclusively dedicated to the Arabian shore of the Persian Gulf from Khasab to Bahrain, which Wellsted calls the "Pirate Coast". He describes an extended diplomatic visit to the emir of Sharjah, Sultan ibn Saqr Al Qasimi (d. 1866), in 1827, during which he spent several days among his entourage. There is also a fascinating account of "Tanún" of the "Beni As", namely Tahnun bin Shakhbut Al Nahyan, ruler of Abu Dhabi from 1818 to 1833: "an enterprising character, who possessed considerable power, and maintained a regular force of four hundred men, very well armed and equipped. Small as this number may appear, it was sufficient to give him considerable influence over his rivals …" (vol. 1 pp. 257-8). There is also an intriguing account of Tahnun's friendly reception of a group of British surveying officers (Wellsted evidently among them) who, on visiting his territory in 1828, were invited to participate in "wrestling, leaping, and other athletic exercises" with the local Arabs (p. 259). On publication Wellsted's book was "the fullest account of the area then published" (Burrell), and remains valued: "Wellsted was an acute observer and not blinded by prejudice or ignorance in his description of the local people. His accounts of the geography of Oman, particularly the irrigation systems and the way of life in remote mountain tracts, continue to be important as a unique description of the country at an early date" (ODNB).

        The Koran. Commonly called the Alcoran of Mohammed. Translated from the Original Arabic: with Explanatory Notes, taken from the most Approved Commentators: to which is prefixed, a Preliminary Discourse. By George Sale.

      London: for Thomas Tegg and Son, 1838 - Octavo (214 x 132 mm). Contemporary tan calf, spine gilt in compartments, red and black morocco labels, gilt frame to covers, edges dyed yellow with red sprinkling, marbled endpapers. Extremities rubbed, light craquelure to covers, mild finger-soiling to front, occasional light spotting. A very good copy. Folding frontispiece with engraved plan and view of Mecca, 3 genealogical tables of which 2 folding, folding map of Arabia. Later London edition of Sale's Qur'an, the first English translation of the Qur'an to be made directly from the Arabic on first publication in 1734, and the basis for all subsequent English editions until the mid-nineteenth century; previously the only complete English translation had been Alexander Ross's 1649 version, which relied solely on the 1647 French edition by Alexandre du Ryer. George Sale (1697-1734), a solicitor, was "the first notable English Arabist who was not in holy orders From 1726 to 1734 he was closely associated with the Society for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge, which he served in his legal capacity. Meanwhile he was working on a translation of the Qur'an a landmark in the history of Qur'anic studies" (Holt, Studies in the History of the Near East, p. 58). Sale was textually indebted to the 1698 Latin translation of Ludovico Marracci, confessor to Pope Innocent XI, and his citation of Muslim commentators is restricted to those already mentioned by his predecessor. Yet Sale's work, and in particular his extensive Preliminary Discourse discussing both the biography of the Prophet and the Arabian context of Islam, displays "an enlightened and objective attitude which may have been responsible for his gradual dissociation from the activities of the SPCK", in contrast to the openly polemical intentions of Marracci, whose prefaced offered a lengthy refutation of the Qur'an and Muhammad's prophethood (ibid.) Sale's balanced presentation of Muhammad and Islamic origins was much admired by his contemporaries, including Voltaire, Lessing and especially Gibbon, whose treatment of Arabian history and Islam in his Decline and Fall relies heavily on Sale. In 1921 Edward Denison Ross claimed that Sale's version had still not been superseded, and more than fifty years later Sale's objectivity guarded him from criticism in Edward Said's Orientalism (1978).

        Clipped signature ("P. Henry")

      3/4 x 2 inch slip, mounted to ALS Henry's son John Henry, Charlotte Court House, VA, November 7, 1838, 4to; docketed and addressed on verso. Loss to blank corners of letter. 3/4 x 2 inch slip, mounted to ALS Henry's son John Henry, Charlotte Court House, VA, November 7, 1838, 4to; docketed and addressed on verso. A cut signature of the Virginia statesman Patrick Henry (1736-1799), whose "Give me liberty or give me death speech" in Richmond in 1775 remains an integral moment in the mythology of the American Revolution. Henry was Virginia's first (and sixth) post-colonial Governor, and served in the Virginia State Assembly as well. The autograph is mounted on a letter from his son John Henry to a Reverend Samuel Alexander, reading in part: "I enclose you my fathers signature, agreeable to promise, cut from an old paper relating to private business. All his papers & letters of a public nature are deposited with the Young Men's Debating Society of Lynchburg & I expect that I have not in the house some letter of an interesting nature containing his signature to send you. John Henry." The Patrick Henry Debating Society of Lynchburg marched in a memorial parade for General Lafayett on July 15, 1836. We are unable to trace any other mention of its stewardship of Henry's papers.

        Travels in Arabia.

      London: John Murray,, 1838. 2 volumes, octavo (223 ×140 mm). Recent tan half calf, raised bands to spines, compartments decorated in gilt, black morocco label to second, marbled sides and endpapers, all edges untrimmed. Lithographic frontispiece to each volume and 5 similar plates, most by Louis Haghe from drawings by the author, 5 maps including a large folding route map, tables to the text. Mild toning to text-block, the occasional marginal spot, plates foxed, skilful restoration along top edge of large folding route map verso. A very good copy. First edition of this valuable Arabian travel account, of which the entire first volume is dedicated to the author's travels in Oman and the Gulf, and includes vivid eyewitness reports of the tribes making up the ruling families of today's United Arab Emirates. Wellsted (1805-1842), a British naval officer in the Bombay Marine, was "for a considerable period" (vol. 1 p. 252) employed in the survey of the Persian Gulf initiated after the siege of Ra's al-Khaymah in 1819. In 1830 he was appointed second lieutenant of the Palinurus and undertook an important survey of the Red Sea and the Gulf of 'Aqabah, described in the second volume; in 1833-4 he surveyed the southern coast of Arabia and visited Socotra, before, in 1835, being granted permission to travel in Oman "to investigate the manners and customs of the people of inner Oman, to locate the important towns and oases, and to investigate the topography of the country" (Marshall, p. 23). Travelling inland from Muscat he reached Samad, where he met Lieutenant Francis Whitelock, another Indian Navy officer. The pair criss-crossed inland Oman before local instability forced them to return to Shinas on the coast, from where Wellsted sailed back to India and Whitelock travelled overland to Sharjah. Chapters 16 and 17 of the first volume are exclusively dedicated to the Arabian shore of the Persian Gulf from Khasab to Bahrain, which Wellsted calls the "Pirate Coast". He describes an extended diplomatic visit to the emir of Sharjah, Sultan ibn Saqr Al Qasimi (d. 1866), in 1827, during which he spent several days among his entourage. There is also a fascinating account of "Tanún" of the "Beni As", namely Tahnun bin Shakhbut Al Nahyan, ruler of Abu Dhabi from 1818 to 1833: "an enterprising character, who possessed considerable power, and maintained a regular force of four hundred men, very well armed and equipped. Small as this number may appear, it was sufficient to give him considerable influence over his rivals …" (vol. 1 pp. 257-8). There is also an intriguing account of Tahnun's friendly reception of a group of British surveying officers (Wellsted evidently among them) who, on visiting his territory in 1828, were invited to participate in "wrestling, leaping, and other athletic exercises" with the local Arabs (p. 259). Wellsted's book was "the fullest account of the area then published" (Burrell), and remains valued: "Wellsted was an acute observer and not blinded by prejudice or ignorance in his description of the local people. His accounts of the geography of Oman, particularly the irrigation systems and the way of life in remote mountain tracts, continue to be important as a unique description of the country at an early date" (ODNB).

White (1808-1898), a friend of Charles d'Oyly was stationed in India with the 31st Regiment of Foot from 1825 to 1846, and saw action at Moodkee and Ferozeshah in the First Anglo-Sikh War, retiring as lieutenant-colonel on half-pay in 1854. Between 1829 and 1832 he travelled "in that portion of the Himalayan regions lying between the rivers Sutlej and Kelee" (p. x), making sketches of sites along the Ganges and Jumna, at Simla, and elsewhere; there are also views in Rajputana, Bombay, the Deccan and Kathiawar. Views in India notably includes seven plates from watercolours by J. M. W. Turner, based on White's on-the-spot sketches, including the frontispiece and a "spectacular view" of the waterfall and mountains at the source of the Jumna (De Almeida and Gilpin, Indian Renaissance: British Romantic Art and the Prospect of India, p. 287); there are also plates based on sketches by Grindlay, whose own celebrated work was published in 1826.

        Sept années en Chine: nouvelles observations sur cet empire, l'archipel Indo-Chinois, les Philippines et les iles Sandwich, par Pierre Dobel, conseiller de Collège au service de Russie, ancient consul de cette puissance aux Iles Philippines.

      Paris: Gide, éditeur des Annales des Voyages, rue de Seine, no. 6 bis, 1838. - 8vo (22 x 14 cm.): [2], x, 358 pages; two lithographed plates by Formentin & Cie., with frontispiece entitled "Insulaire de Manille" and plate following chapter XII (p. [178]) entitled "Femme de Manille". Bound in original blue printed paper wrappers, uncut, spine worn, with pp. 320-358 loose but holding; occasional foxing and spotting. VERY RARE AND COMPLETE FIRST EDITION OF DOBELL'S TRAVELS THROUGH CHINA, INDOCHINA AND NORTH VIETNAM, THE PHILIPPINES, AND HAWAII. An Irish-born adventurer in Russian service, Peter Dobell (1772-1852) embarked in 1812 on a long journey from Kamchatka across Siberia to Tomsk. The resulting work, Travels in Kamtchatka and Siberia (1830), contains a detailed and idiosyncratic account of his journey, painting an affectionate picture of the region and its people. Dobell also lived in China for many years, and his equally detailed account of this seven-year sojourn first appeared in Russian in 1833. Dobell gives opinionated observations on topics such as Chinese society, customs, traditions, trade and medicine, with additional chapters describing his visits to North Vietnam, the Philippines, and Hawaii. The present translation by Prince Emmanuel Galitzin (1804-1853) from the original Russian edition into French proved popular enough to warrant a reprint, which appeared in 1842.

        Researches in Assyria, Babylonia, and Chaldaea; Forming Part of the Labours of the Euphrates Expedition.

The fold-out map is by the cartographer John Arrowsmith (1790-1873). William Francis Ainsworth (1807-1896) was a geographer and geologist. "In 1835 Ainsworth was appointed surgeon and geologist to the expedition to the Euphrates under Francis Rawdon Chesney to examine the feasibility of opening up the Mesopotamian rivers to steam navigation as a new route to India, as well as asserting British political presence in the area, promoting British commercial ties, and gathering scientific and archaeological data. Ainsworth constructed geological sections across northern Syria and the Taurus Mountains, discovered several deposits of commercially important minerals in Mesopotamia and Anatolia, and explored a substantial part of south-east Persia. With Chesney, Ainsworth published the first account of the expedition in the 'Journal of the Royal Geographical Society' (1837) and the next year wrote his own fuller account as 'Researches in Assyria, Babylonia and Chaldaea' (1838)." - ODNB Condition: Very good. Pencil inscription to the frontis, title page, and one of the plates. Tidemarks to plates. Three of the plate have several small closed tears that have been repaired, measuring no more than 2cm.

        Voyage en Abyssinie, dans le pays des Galla, de Choa et d'Ifat; prà cà dà d'une excursion dans L'Arabie-Heureuse . 1833-1857.

      1838 - Paris, Louis Desessart, 1838. 4 vols. 8vo. Quarter dark green calf over marbled boards, marbled edges and endpapers, spine with raised bands, tooled in gilt and decorated in blind; bound without the map as sometimes the case; a little faded in places, but overall a sturdy, clean and uniform set. First edition. Combe and Tamisier travelled as part of the Saint-Simon movement during the years 1835-1837 in an endeavour to contribute to the exploration of Abyssinia and knowledge of Ethiopian culture. The movement was based on socialist co-operative principles and sought to raise the status of women and workers. They sponsored many expeditions into Egypt, Yemen and other parts of Africa (possibly due to the fact that their leader was arrested for propagating dissent in 1832, and they were looking for a safe haven). In particular, Combe's work is best reputed for his attention to the details of the lives of women and disadvantaged peoples in the countries he visited. Combe went on to gain a reputation as an explorer of Ethiopia, and worked as an informal diplomat. The exploration reports of Combe and Tamisier were read widely amongst those with an interest, and served as a good source of information for the wider attempts to bring regions such as Abyssinia into the trade network.
