        Tagebuch. / Angefangen Stedar, den 17. Mai / 1837 [handschriftlich].

      1837/1838. - 69 unpaginierte Blätter aus drei aufeinanderfolgenden Heften (Kladden). 21 x 16,5 cm (Kladden), 22 x 18 cm (Einband). Späterer (20. Jh.) Leineneinband. Der Rücken trägt die Jahreszahl 1837. Vom Buchbinder mit Bleistift paginiert (140). Die Blätter der letzten Kladde am Rand mit Wasserschaden und läsiert, teils mit Textverlust. Von drei Blättern wurde die obere oder untere Hälfte herausgetrennt; ein Folgeblatt wurde dabei beschädigt (Einriß). Das Tagebuch besteht aus drei Heften und wurde vom 17. Mai 1837 bis zum 25. November 1838 geführt. Vorherige und nachherige Hefte wahrscheinlich, aber nicht belegt. Der Verfasser wirkte als Hauslehrer in Stedar auf Rügen und berichtet u. a. von seinen Ausflügen nach Bergen (Rügen), Putbus, Stubbenkammer, Buschvitz, Granitz, Mönchgut, Jasmund etc. - Stedar war adeliger Besitz, zunächst der Familie Vitzen, dann Bonow. Bis 1769 im Besitz der Familie Normann, wechselten danach die Besitzer häufig; zur Zeit des Tagebuches fast wüst gefallen, verzeichnete der Ort um 1900 wieder 85 Einwohner und war ein Gut mit einem 1869 erbauten Gutshof. Grümbke berichtet von ihm anläßlich eines Ausflugs nach Putlitz. - Der Autor, so ist dem Tagebuch zu entnehmen, wurde am 16. April in Sternberg (Mecklenburg) geboren. Sein Vorgesetzter war Pastor Krüger (wohl nicht identisch mit dem bei Arndt in seinen Lebenserinnerungen erwähnten aus Swantow). - Der Autor des Tagebuchs bezieht sich auf Ludwig Hofacker, einen kurz vorher in jungen Jahren gestorbenen Pietisten.

        OLIVER TWIST; Or the Parish Boy's Progress

      London: Richard Bentley, 1838. First edition. First edition in three volumes in the original publisher's fine diaper cloth with arabesque designs on the boards. First issues with Boz on the title pages (not "Charles Dickens") and with the "fireside plate" in volume 3. Bound with all half-titles and ads as required by Smith. An excellent, unrepaired set. Books one and two are Near Fine, slightly faded on the spine, but with uncracked hinges and only the slightest foxing. Book three Very Good on account of an ink stain on the front board and minor separation within the page block at p. 2-3. A uniform set with an amorial bookplate on the front end paper of each volume ("Lank"). Dickens' second novel, "Oliver Twist," is a dark and biting work, but one that is balanced with Oliver's indefatigable innocence and charm. Often cited as the first Victorian novel to feature a child protagonist, it was developed as a social commentary and a call for improving the conditions of London's destitute and orphan children. And it was immensely successful, both as a novel filled with memorable characters and also as a work prompting much needed reform. Today it remains high within the pantheon of Victorian literature and is a work that has been successfully adapted to both the stage and screen.

        TROY. TAKEN FROM THE WEST BANK OF THE HUDSON, IN FRONT OF THE UNITED STATES ARSENAL.

      New York: Henry J. Megarey, 1838. - Colored aquatint, image area 17 3/4 x 25 1/2 inches. Mild toning. Very good. Matted and framed. A wonderfully energetic and skillfully hand- colored view of Troy, New York from across the Hudson River, produced by Henry J. Megarey, the publisher of THE HUDSON RIVER PORTFOLIO. The artist, William James Bennett was a London-born watercolor painter and aquatint engraver, probably most famous for his 1841 view of New Orleans, one the finest depictions of American maritime commerce ever printed, and part of the same series of American city views as the current example. Bennett's Troy view is striking in its own right. "In this beautiful aquatint of Troy by the artist, William James Bennett we see a well-developed and busy city. The white-columned building in the left center is the First Presbyterian Church, erected in 1835-1836 (just in time to be included in the aquatint) and still standing today. The square tower with pinnacles to its right is Saint Paul's Protestant Episcopal Church, erected in 1827- 1828 and also still standing. Making its way along the Hudson, further to the right, is the steam packet JOHN MASON, its deck, fore and aft, crowded with passengers. On the viewer's side of the Hudson, we are given a good idea of what well-dressed young men of the 1830s might be wearing. As is typical of Bennett's work, this view of Troy is a well- balanced pictorial image, containing elements of landscape and riverscape painting" - Deak. Deak refers to Bennett's series of nineteen scenes of late 1830s - early 1840s urban America as "the finest collection of folio views of American cities." The present example is a first state copy, with the word "TROY" unshaded. Exceedingly rare. DEAK, PICTURING AMERICA 479. STOKES, ICONOGRAPHY OF MANHATTAN ISLAND III, pp.619-22. STOKES & HASKELL, AMERICAN HISTORICAL PRINTS, P.1837-E- 53, pp.83-84. FIELDING, AMERICAN ENGRAVERS 152. ENO 494.

        Minute and Cash Book for the 'Loyal Star of Providence (Oddfellows) Lodge', Crowland, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire 1838-1844.

      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 between Brothers, in January 1839 it was proposed that the venue for meetings be changed owing to the 'conduct of the hostess' and 'through the immorality practised in the next room' (presumably by either Mrs Clark or Thomas Clark, the treasurer); after a vote, gatherings would henceforth take place 'at the House of Abraham Blood - known by the sign of the George Hotel.' In May 1839, Henry Girdlestone was elected an Honorary Member having wagered that he could walk a thousand miles in a hundred days - and in fact completed 1,025 miles in 49 days. The 'Oddfellows' emerged from mediaeval trade guilds as friendly societies for mutual support by and for members in times of sickness and bad luck. Compared with freemasonic lodges centred on one trade or profession, members were working class tradesmen and craftsmen - such as wheelwrights, carters, labourers, millers, farmers and bricklayers - 'oddfellows' from an assortment of trades. This detailed manuscript record gives a very clear picture of such a friendly society, its fund-raising, disbursements, disputes and management.

Erste Ausgabe dieser klassischen Schrift. - "Remak was one of the greatest neurocytologists and his published works have withstood the test of time and scientific examination. His unsurpassed ability as a microscopist is well demonstrated in this doctoral thesis, written in Latin when he was only twenty-three years of age. In it he presented one of the fundamental truths of neurohistology by distinguishing between the gray postganglionic nerve fibers (Remark's fibers) and the white cerebrospinal nerves. He also demonstrated that the autonomic ganglia are the axones of nerve cells and are continuous with cells within the spinal cord. These axones were later called axis cylinders by Purkinje" (Heirs). - Papierbedingt leicht gebräunt.

        Personal Sammelband of Army Court Martial Reports

      Various locations, 1838-1852. 1/2 leather. This collection of 86 General Orders reports the results of important courts-martial conducted within the United States Army between 1838 and 1852. Each report ranges in size from one to 28 pages. All are in nice shape. The half-leather binding has been sympathetically rebacked. John Fitzgelrald Lee’s bookplate is inside the front cover. His penciled binding instructions are on a flyleaf, and two blanks have pencil notes identifying additional trial reports Lee wanted to include in the volume. Many of the reports are signed in ink by Roger Jones, the Adjutant General of the Army from 1825 to 1852, and six are signed by Samuel Cooper, who became the highest ranking Confederate general during the American Civil War. This volume was Lee’s personal reference collection of court martial reports, and no doubt many of them are of trials in which he participated including the famous 1848 mutiny court-martial of John Fremont (for declaring himself the Governor of California) where Lee served as the prosecuting attorney. Other important trials include the court-martial of Captain Seth Thorton after his unit of dragoons was captured by the Mexican Army sparking the Mexican-American War. The trials involved all of the major Army regiments and departments and were held throughout the country—including Florida (during the Seminole War), Texas (before statehood), Western territories, California—and in Mexico. In addition to suspensions and dismissals from service, suspensions of pay and rank, and confinement, more severe sentences (death by hanging and firing squad, branding, lashes with a cat-o-nine tails, etc.) were imposed upon enlisted soldiers for desertion, attempted murder, and murder. Many of the officers who were tried in these courts-martial went on to fame or notoriety including: Braxton Bragg, Don Carlos Buell, Ambrose Burnside, James Carleton, Rene DeRussy, William Harney, Nathaniel Lyon, Samuel Ringgold, James Ripley, Fayette Robinson, Alexander Shiras, and Charles S. Tripler. This reference collection of important court martial records collected by the military’s principal 19th century legal officer provides incredible window into rough-and-tumble, yet surprisingly refined, military life in antebellum America. (Short summaries of each court-martial will be provided with purchase.) The original office of the Judge Advocate of the Army was abolished in 1802 and the entire Judge Advocate General’s Corps was eliminated in 1821. After that time, line officers were detailed to serve as trial attorneys for courts-martial. Although Lee, a cousin of Robert E. Lee, was a graduate of West Point and an artillery officer, he had long hoped to become a lawyer and was frequently detailed to serve as a trial attorney at posts throughout the country. When the service decided to re-establish the position of Judge Advocate of the Army in 1849, Lee was the obvious choice. He served in the position until 1862 when the position was once more abolished. Just before his appointment as the Judge Advocate General, Lee served as an ordnance officer at the St. Louis Arsenal. His son, John Fitzgerald Lee, Jr. practiced law in the St. Louis after graduating from the University of Virginia and served as the president of the St. Louis Bar Association, president of the David Rankin School of Mechanical Trades, director of the St. Louis Public Library, and a member of the Washington University Board of Directors. In his later years, the senior Lee lived with his son in St. Louis where he died in 1884 and was buried in Cavalry Cemetery.

      Boston: James Munroe, 1838, 1838. First edition. Myerson A7.1; BAL 5184. Wrappers slightly soiled; and worn; but still a fine copy of an elusive, early Emerson title which when found at all is usually disbound. Enclosed in a chemise and cloth slipcase.. 8vo, original printed blue wrappers, 31 pages. Emerson's boldest statement to date on the Transcendentalist cause and the need to question religious tradition: "Let me admonish you, first of all, to go alone; to refuse the good models, even those which are sacred in the imagination of men, and dare to love God without mediator or veil." Contemporary ink ownership signature of Abner J. Phipps on the upper wrapper - a graduate of Phillips Academy, Dartmouth College (1838) and resident of Boston - who was probably present at Emerson's address.

        AN ORATION, delivered before the Literary Societies of Dartmouth College

      1838. [very early Emerson, in wrappers] July 24, 1838. Published by Request. Boston: Charles C. Little and James Brown, 1838. Original printed light blue wrappers. First (and only separate) Edition of this very early Emerson oration -- delivered at Dartmouth College in July 1838, and published (1000 copies) in September by the co-founders (the year before) of today's Little Brown & Co. This piece would later be known as, and collected as, "Literary Ethics." This is very "early Emerson," preceded only by his NATURE (1836) and a couple of other orations delivered at Harvard (1837 & 1838); his next publication would not be for three more years -- his momentous first series of ESSAYS (1841), which would include "Self-Reliance."~This copy is still in the original delicate light-blue wrappers, the front of which reproduces (within a three-line border) the title page. Condition is just about fine (one vertical crease, quite likely from the original mailing). The upper margin of the front cover bears the inscription "Regards of R.C. Lane."

Overall good. vi, 304, iv pp., plus 18 plates. *** FIRST EDITION. The 18 plates in this volume, which did not appear in any of Poeppig's other works, include a forest fire in Brazil, a trip up the Marañón River, and the Cathedral of Lima. Subjects of the chapters include Matanzas (Cuba), Crete, Kurdistan, Baalbec, Antioch, Natal, the Cape of Good Hope, Damascus, Circassia, Peru, Lebanon, and Oman.Eduard Friedrich Poeppig (1798-1868), German botanist, zoologist and explorer, was sent by the University of Leipzig to gather botanical specimens in North and South America. He spent considerable time in Cuba (1823-24), Pennsylvania (1824-26), and Chile, Peru, and Brazil (1826-1832). His visit to Chile, Peru, and then down the Amazon by raft and canoe to Pará was described in @Reise in Chile, Peru unde auf dem Amazonenstrome während der Jahre 1827-1832, printed in Leipzig, 1835 but not distributed until 1856. Although Poeppig lost some of his scientific data on the trip down the Amazon, he described over 4,000 plant species. Borba comments that "The account of his expedition and the botanical surveys he published are comparable to the work of Humboldt." The plant genus Poeppigia is named after him, as are the Silvery Wooly Monkey (Lagothrix poeppigii), and the orchid Campylocentrum poeppigii (Rchb. f.) Rolfe.*** Not in Borba de Moraes (1983); cf.

        TROY. TAKEN FROM THE WEST BANK OF THE HUDSON, IN FRONT OF THE UNITED STATES ARSENAL

      New York: Henry J. Megarey, 1838. Colored aquatint, image area 17 3/4 x 25 1/2 inches. Mild toning. Very good. Matted and framed. A wonderfully energetic and skillfully hand-colored view of Troy, New York from across the Hudson River, produced by Henry J. Megarey, the publisher of THE HUDSON RIVER PORTFOLIO. The artist, William James Bennett was a London-born watercolor painter and aquatint engraver, probably most famous for his 1841 view of New Orleans, one the finest depictions of American maritime commerce ever printed, and part of the same series of American city views as the current example. Bennett's Troy view is striking in its own right. "In this beautiful aquatint of Troy by the artist, William James Bennett we see a well-developed and busy city. The white-columned building in the left center is the First Presbyterian Church, erected in 1835-1836 (just in time to be included in the aquatint) and still standing today. The square tower with pinnacles to its right is Saint Paul's Protestant Episcopal Church, erected in 1827-1828 and also still standing.... Making its way along the Hudson, further to the right, is the steam packet JOHN MASON, its deck, fore and aft, crowded with passengers. On the viewer's side of the Hudson, we are given a good idea of what well-dressed young men of the 1830s might be wearing.... As is typical of Bennett's work, this view of Troy is a well-balanced pictorial image, containing elements of landscape and riverscape painting" - Deak. Deak refers to Bennett's series of nineteen scenes of late 1830s - early 1840s urban America as "the finest collection of folio views of American cities." The present example is a first state copy, with the word "TROY" unshaded. Exceedingly rare. DEAK, PICTURING AMERICA 479. STOKES, ICONOGRAPHY OF MANHATTAN ISLAND III, pp.619-22.

        Mr Owen's establishment at New Lanark, a failure!! As proved by Edward Baines, Esq. M.P. and other gentlemen, deputed with him by the parishioners of Leeds, to visit and inspect that establishment, and report thereon.

      Leeds, published by the Leeds District Board of the Association of All Classes of All Nations. 1838. 12mo., 12pp., preserved in modern wrappers with printed label on upper cover. A very good copy. First edition. Goldsmiths 30726. Harrison p.288. NLW (Owen) 488. The Leeds deputation, appointed by the Guardians of the poor in Leeds, comprised Edward Baines himself, together with Robert Oastler and John Cawood. They were asked to report upon the system of education pursued at New Lanark. Their report was entirely favourable. 'Mr. Owen's establishment is conducted in a manner superior to any other the Deputation ever witnessed, dispensing more happiness than perhaps any other Institution in the Kingdom. Public houses, and other resorts of the vicious are no where to be found in this happy village. Intoxication, the parent of so many vices and so much misery is indeed almost unknown here. No cursing or swearing is any where to be heard. There are here no quarrelsome men or brawling women. The inhabitants of this place form a more religious community than any other manufacturing establishment in the Kingdom'.

Reliure frottée, coins usés, dos muet, intérieur frais. Chaque planche en noir est estampillée du timbre sec de "Bauger et Cie". Suite de 49/50 lithographies originales en noir tirées sur blanc 34 x 26 cm. La lithographie n°50 manque pour que la série soit complète. Sans page de titre. Rassemblé tel quel à l'époque. On joint 8 lithographies de cette même série, aquarellées et gommées à l'époque. Quelques défauts dans les marges (déchirures), papier teinté pour certaines. Détail des planches en couleurs sur simple demande. PREMIER TIRAGE. TIRAGE SUR BLANC. La très belle suite Les enfants terribles, 50 lithographies, a paru entre 1838 et 1842. Les 7 premières furent déposées en 1838 et 1839, 41 en 1840 et 1841, les deux dernières en 1842. (Lemoisne, p. 126). "Ce qui rendra l'oeuvre de Gavarni impérissable : cette vie intense, cette profonde connaissance de l'humanité" (Lemoisne) "C'est aussi vers la même époque qu'il imagina un type resté proverbial : l'enfant terrible qui, naïvement indifférent aux cataclysmes qu'il peut déchaîner, dévoile toujours ce qu'il faudrait laisser ignorer, raconte ce qu'il faudrait taire. C'était une idée amusante et nouvelle que de montrer le féroce égoïsme de ces petits monstres, tranquilles et souriants dans leur inconscience. Il est vrai que, sous le crayon de l'artiste, ils sont si drôles que l'on finit par sourire au lieu de plaindre leurs victimes ; victimes que, du reste, le philosophe s'est complu à rendre peu sympathiques à côté de ces tyrans enfantins. [...] Cette série de dessins découle en droite ligne de ses belles études d'enfants de 1834 ; et, cependant, tout en gardant les qualités de celles-ci, montre bien, par le dessin plus libre, plus audacieux, plus cursif, tout le chemin parcouru."
