        Financial letter President Van Buren wrote concerning ?a final settlement of the whole matter? regarding a $2000 note and property owned by Peter G. Stuyvesant, great great grandson of the last Dutch Governor of New Netherland

      "Autograph Letter as President, not signed, 1p, 7.25? x 9?. No place. Docketed on verso of integral sheet ?M Van Buren / (Stuyvesant / business) / Oct 1839.? Unknown recipient. Fine condition. In full: ?Say to Mr Butler Most of it would be more agreeable to him to get the $2000 note we have endorsed for Charles out of the way he may draw on me for the half of it and he & I will keep it subject to a final settlement of the whole matter; but if this is to be done his brother should first convey to some third person all those portions of the property which have been purchased from Strangers, to hold in trust, to be conveyed to us as we shall hereafter agree. I would propose Lucas Green as the trustee.? Benjamin F. Butler was appointed U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York by President Martin Van Buren in 1838 after serving as Andrew Jackson and Van Buren?s Attorney General from 1833-1838. Admitted to the bar when he was 21, Butler became then New York State Senator Martin Van Buren?s law partner in 1817. The ?Stuyvesant business? refers to Peter G. Stuyvesant (1777-1847) and his late brother Nicholas W. Stuyvesant (1769-1833), gr-gr-grandsons of Peter Stuyvesant, the last Dutch Director-General of New Netherland from 1647-1664 when it was ceded to the English. Their maternal great grandfather was Robert Livingstone, 1st Lord of the Manor of Livingstone. Each brother owned property in Manhattan. In this letter, Van Buren believes that before the matter is settled, Peter, Nicholas?s ?brother should first convey to some third person all those portions of the property which have been purchased from Strangers...? The Library of Congress has among its papers a letter written by Benjamin F. Butler to President Van Buren dated November 23, 1839, concerning ?The Stuyvesant note.?"

        The Crown Sentences for the Lincolnshire Lent Assizes. Holden at the Castle of Lincoln, in and for the County of Lincoln, on Saturday March 9th, 1839, before Lord Denman, and the Hon. Sir John Bernard Bosanquet, Knight. G.F. Heneage, Esq. Sheriff

      Lincoln: S. Thorpe, printer, 1839. Small broadside measuring 373 x 115 mm., very good condition. Sixteen sentenced to transportation. Scarce ephemeral broadside printing results of the Lincolnshire assizes from the session of 9 March 1839, listing the crimes and sentences (including transportation to New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land) of some 21 souls.The late 1830s was a period of great social instability fuelled by industrialisation, economic change and the growth of large urban centres. Transportation peaked during this period, to the point that the economy and infrastructure of Van Diemen's Land was almost pushed to collapse by the large convict influx.Of the 21 men and women here listed, 16 were transported for various terms from seven years to life. A further four were acquitted altogether. The broadside reveals two life sentences - one Isaac Dickinson, a resident of Lincoln aged 22 years, was sentenced to transportation for life for highway robbery of a farmer for a sum exceeding £60; likewise John Baker, 23 years of age and living in Partney, for housebreaking.

        The Birds of America from Drawings Made in the United States and Their Territories

      New York: J. J. Audbon, 86 White Street. Philadelphia: J. B. Chevalier, 72 Dock Street, 1839. First Octavo edition. original blue wrappers decoratively stamped and lettered in black. In custom blue cloth four way folding box, inside full blue morocco clam shell box decorated and lettered in gilt (new). Wrappers on part 3 detached (but present), tissue guards lacking for plate 5, part 1; some rubbing and browning of some edges of wrappers. Interiors with slight browning and brown spots, most plates very slightly affected. Royal octavo (27 x 16.7 cms). No. 1 - 5. ii, [1] - 104. The set was issued in 100 parts llustrated with 24 full page lithographs, with tissue guards. Printed and coloured by J. T. Bowen. There are five plates in each part, except part 3: plate 11, 10 [sic], 14, and 15 The lists of subscribers are printed on the inside of each wrapper Audubon wanted his work to be more popular and thus embarked on his octavo edition of his great work first published by subsciption in the Folio sets which at the time cost a staggering $1,000 each, just in production costs. From the Introduction: ?Having been frequently asked for several years past .... to present to them and to the public a work ... of such dimensions and at such a price, as would enable every student or lover of nature to place it in his library ... I have undertaken the task with ... in their present miniature form, ... J. J. Audubon. New York, Nov. 1839.? Of the five Octavo editions, only the first one was produced under Audubon?s personal supervision since he died in 1851. Audubon's fame was firmly established by the lavish double-elephant folio edition of The Birds of America produced between 1827-1838. For that work, Audubon had felt that there was no American printer capable of taking such a demanding project and so traveled to London to employ some of that country's finest craftsmen, William Home Lizars and Robert Havell. For the octavo edition, however, Audubon returned to the United States and employed the Philadelphia firm of J.T. Bowen to produce a more commercially viable edition of the work under the close supervision of his sons. The subscription price for the work was $100, making it an expensive work aimed at the country's wealthy, although its potential to reach a greater public far surpassed that of the double-elephant folio edition. The market success was immense, launching Audubon into financial security and firmly establishing his wide-ranging appeal as the greatest ornithological artist of his (or perhaps any) time. To the original plate count included in the double-elephant folio edition, the octavo edition adds 65 new images for a total of 500 plates, making it "the most extensive color plate book produced in America up to that time" (Reese). The plates were reduced by camera lucida and lithographed, with some of the backgrounds entirely changed or greatly modified. The original compositions are altered so that only one species is depicted per plate. The text itself is a revision of the Ornithological Biography, rearranged according to Audubon's "A Synopsis of the Birds of North America" [Herrick 4. Sabin 2364].

        The Artist.

      German, 1839. Original colour lithograph depicting a playful and satirical approach of a painter to his work. 47 x 38,5 cm. Excellent condition of this early lithograph - in old, original hand-colouring. Wonderful example of a very accomplished work using the still young technique of lithography. Playing with all sorts of clichées of artists and their approaches, centering the pastime of the usuccessful artist against the seriousness of the craft. The year 1683 on the easel surely a clue to deciphering the meaning of this image, we were not able to do so. Whoever solves the puzzle, receives 20% discount on the price of this artwork.

        William Wilson [In:] The Gift - : A Christmas and New Year's Present for 1840. Edited by Miss [Eliza] Leslie With nine steel-engravings. The collection includes other publications e.g. "Deacon Enos" by Harriet Beecher Stowe.

      Philadelphia: Carey & Hart. First Edition.. Stronger rubbed. Lower spine slightly detached only. Lettering on front board reads: "S.S.Dole. Danvers.". Stronger signs of foxing to those pages with plates and tissue-guards. Else with only occasional foxing.. First Edition. Philadelphia, Carey & Hart, 1839. 8°. VIII, 328 pages. Original, blindstamped morocco with gilt lettering and ornaments on spine and boards. Stronger rubbed. Lower spine slightly detached only. Lettering on front board reads: "S.S.Dole. Danvers.". Stronger signs of foxing to those pages with plates and tissue-guards. Else with only occasional foxing. [Only 7500 copies of the 1840 edition of "The Gift" were printed] "William Wilson" is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, first published in 1839, with a setting inspired by Poe's formative years outside of London. The tale follows the theme of the doppelgänger and is written in a style based on rationality. It also appeared in the 1840 collection Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque, and has been adapted several times. The setting of "William Wilson" is semi-autobiographical and relates to Poe's residence in England as a boy. The "misty-looking village of England" of the story is Stoke Newington, now a suburb of north London. The school is based on the Manor House School in Stoke Newington which Poe attended from 1817 to 1820. Poe's headmaster there, the Reverend John Bransby, shares the same name as the headmaster in the story, though, in the latter, he acquires the dignity of being a "Doctor". This school has since been demolished. The church mentioned in the story is based on St Mary's "Old" Church, the original parish church of Stoke Newington. This building is still extant. Additionally, Poe acknowledged that the idea of a story about the irritation one feels by meeting someone with the same name, thereby ruining a feeling of uniqueness, was inspired by an article by Washington Irving. At the end of Irving's tale, the main character kills his double with his sword, only to see his own face behind the mask. "William Wilson" was published in the October 1839 issue of Burton's Gentleman's Magazine, though it appeared earlier that year in The Gift: A Christmas and New Year's Present dated for 1840. The tale was later translated into French in December 1844, printed in the Paris newspaper La Quotidienne in two installments. This was the first translation of Poe's work to a language other than English and marked Poe's introduction to France. (Wikipedia)

        Australiana. Thoughts on Convict Management [bound with] Supplement to Thoughts on Convict Management

      London & Hobart Town: John W. Parker & J.C.MacDougall, 1839. The two works bound as a single volume, octavo, first work without the half-title, 24 pp. publisher's advertisements; in fine condition in full navy morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. The classic work by the great exponent of "penal science" Maconochie's arguments against the brutality of incarceration have led to him being seen as a forefather of modern theories of imprisonment. His long and varied career included four years as superintendent of the Norfolk Island penal settlement, during which he was able to put many of his views into practice: in effect he formulated and applied most of the principles on which modern penology are based. Among his ideas, two remain basic to his "penal science": 'punishment should not be vindictively conceived, but should aim at the reform of the convict, and a convict's sentence should be indeterminate, with release depending not on the lapse of time but on his own industry and exertions during incarceration' (ADB). He was also a pioneer whilst at Norfolk Island in insisting on the formation of a library for the prisoners and even efforts to cultivate a taste for music among them.This is the London issue of this important book: the sheets of the main work, "Australiana", were printed in Hobart in 1838; some were sent to London for this separate issue, with reset title, of 1839 but not all copies were issued with the supplement present here, with its Hobart 1839 title-page. This copy also has 24 pp. publisher's advertisements; Ferguson notes just one of the seven copies he cites as containing a 16 pp. version.

        El fanatismo druida ó la Sacerdotisa drama en tres actos.

      - Exceedingly rare Venezuelan poem, printed in Caracas. 1839. Caracas. Imprenta de A. Damiron. In 8vo (192 mm x 123 mm). 1 [blank] + 8 ff. + vii + 1 ff. + 93. Later half calf, spine tooled in gilt. A fine copy, marginal soiling to a few pages, wide margins and strong impression; virtually flawless. Apparently first edition. Venezuelan early imprints are, for lack of a better word, rare; only a few examples of some works are found in the major libraries, not to mention a poem in such an elegant edition. The printer was responsible as well for the Geografía general para el uso de la juventud de Venezuela printed in 1833-37. It begins with an authorization from Martin Tovar and follows with a list of subscribers; a curiosity which allows us to learn who would order the poem in the first half of the 19th century, or the post-colonial Venezuela.

        Fine ALS 'Rudolf' in German with translation, to Franz  August von PAUSINGER, (Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary, 1858-1889, committed suicide at Mayerling)

      (1839-1915, the Austrian painter of hunting scenes, who accompanied Rudolf in his eastern travels), asking him to send "reports about the bears, the wind and weather conditions" as he wishes to bring a party hunting "after the 15th November ... some strong bears, well stalked and hunted, especially in snow, would give me great pleasure ... in Görgény or Fancsal" in Eastern Transylvania, with two contrasting cabinet photographs each 6½" x 4½", of Rudolf, both in uniform wearing the Golden Fleece of Austria, one by Otto von Medvey, three-quarter face, with moustache and light beard, dated 1884 in pencil on the verso, the second by Victor Angerer, in profile, wearing also the Star of St. Stephen of Hungary, his beard shaved, taken shortly before he died, 2 sides 8vo., with conjugate blank, Vienna, (Sunday) 28th October slight splitting at fold Pausinger was one of Rudolf's closest friends outside family and court. Rudolf is said to have confided to Pausinger six years before at Görgény that he would not succeed to the throne and he was nearly killed by a bear there in 1885. It is not clear that the proposed expedition took place. Rudolf's alienation from his father was increasing, as were the criticisms of him in the foreign press, and he would have loved to have got away. However, the next Saturday, 3rd November, his cousin Countess Larisch made the fateful introduction with Baronesse Mary Vetsera, (1871-1889), whom he had observed at the races in April, and whom the Prince of Wales had pointed out at the opera on 14th October. They met again on the 10th. In the middle of November the doctor advised a change and Rudolf and his wife and child had a fortnight in the Adriatic from 27th December. On their return the fatal attraction grew apace and by 30th January Rudolf and Marie were dead. An exceptionally rare autograph.

        Observations on the Parallel Roads of Glen Roy, and of other parts of Lochaber in Scotland, with an attempt to prove that they are of marine origin.

      (London, Richard and John E. Taylor, 1839). 4to. Without wrappers. Extracted from "Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London.", 1839, Part I. Pp. 39-81 and 2 plates. (1 engraved map and 1 lithographed plate). The last plate faintly dampstained.. First appearance of Darwin's investigations of the geological phenomenon of the so-called "Parallel Roads" in Scotland."The first published description of the Parallel Roads was by Thomas Pennant in 1771 in his book A Tour of Scotland. This work was far from scientific but during the 19th century Glen Roy played an important role in the development of geological and geomophological theories of landscape evolution.1 Initially the 'Roads' were believed to be lake or marine shorelines. How they were formed in an area that was now high above the sea and without signs of a closed lake bed was a mystery. Initially it was thought that the shorelines were of marine origin and formed during a period when the sea reached levels of the Parallel Roads. Among the proponent of this theory were both Charles Darwin and Charles Lyell.2 It was in particular Darwin who was impressed by the geology of Glen Roy. In 1838 he wrote to Lyell, "I wandered the mountains in All directions and examined that most extraordinary district. I think without any exceptions, not even the first volcanic island, the first elevated beach, or the passage of the Cordillera, as so interesting to me as this week. It is far the most remarkable area I ever examined. ... I can assure you Glen Roy has astonished me".3 Darwin and Lyell proved to be wrong in this matter." (Jan Oosthoek). Freeman: 1653

        Die Sternschnuppen

      Hamburg: Perthes, Besser und Maure, 1839. First Edition. Boards. Good. First Edition. xxiii, [1], 357, [1] pages plus 9 plates. A rather worn copy in early printed boards. Early rebacking with portions of the original spine laid down. Corner tips reinforced un-necessarily with glue. Upper corner bumped affecting textblock. Boards. Benzenberg was the co-discoverer (with Brandes) of the upper-atmospheric (nontropospheric) location of meteors. In 1844 he built a private observatory at Bilk, which he donated to the city of Dusseldorf with a grant to pay for the salary of a resident astronomer. Benzenberg and Brandes worked closely together on meteor research. Die Sternschnuppen was his "up to date monograph, largely chronological, of the first four decades of meteor research. It was evidently intended as an homage to his deceased associate of 1798, H. W. Brandes." Benzenberg published an earlier meteor title: "Die Sternschnuppen sind Steine aus den Mondvulkanen" in 1834 which attempted to explain his theory that meteors came from Volcanos on the Moon. Provenance: Astronomer Sir John F. W. Herschel's copy with the Collingwood library stamp on the title page and small ownership signature of Dr. Sydney Ross's sticker on the front pastedown. Includes a few marginal notes by J.F.W.H. (Herschel Library #308) Hockey, Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers; Dr. Sydney Ross, Catalogue of the Herschel Library.

        The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby

      London: Chapman & Hall 1839 - Illustrated by Hablot Knight Browne ("Phiz"). First edition, first issue, bound from the publisher's parts, with all of the earliest issue points called for by Smith and Hatton & Cleaver. Publisher's first state olive green cloth, with boards and spine ruled in blind, spine lettered in gilt. About near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, faint vertical crease and a hint of dimming to the spine, discreet minor repair to the spine head, replaced endpapers, spine very lightly starting inside the front cover, a few faint hints of scattered spotting, otherwise bright and clean pages, plates lacking much of the usual toning. Overall, an attractive and presentable copy. Smith I, 5. Housed in a custom dark green folding box, with a black morocco title label lettered in gilt to the spine. Like its predecessor Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickleby is a novel set in Victorian England that features a male youth as the protagonist and puts a human face on the social depravation of the British underclass. After losing his father, Nicholas is sent to a boy's school where he witnesses and attempts to prevent the mistreatment of the orphan students by their tyrannical adult wardens. Before its book publication on October 23, 1839, Nicholas Nickleby was issued in twenty parts, published serially in nineteen monthly installments from April 1839 - October 1839. This first edition in book form was bound from the publisher's parts with the stab holes from the original wrappers present and all the points called for by Smith, meaning that it is one of the earlier issues of the first edition. Furthermore, this copy was bound from the earliest states of the publisher's parts, for, as Hatton and Cleaver note, "There are two distinguishing features only, which point out early printings from later issues:" the substitution of "visiter" for "sister" on page 123 and "latter" instead of "letter" on page 160; both of these errors were corrected while Nicholas Nickleby was issued in parts, causing Smith to cite the point on page 123 as "in some copies" only and omit the point on page 160 entirely. This copy has both "visiter" and "latter," deeming it a scarce first edition bound from the first state of the publisher's parts. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Verldsomseglaren, eller sammandrag af de upptacktsresor

      Stockholm: Ecksteinska Boktryckeriet, 1836-, 1839. Eight volumes bound in seven, duodecimo; a very attractive set in contemporary patterned wrappers, slightly rubbed, with hand-lettered papered spine labels. Swedish edition of a voyage classic. Rare Swedish edition of Dumont d'Urville's historical account of voyages around the world from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries, from Magellan, Tasman and Dampier to Cook, La Pérouse and Flinders. Written in the form of an idealised world voyage, the details of places on the voyage are drawn from virtually all the major explorers, from Magellan to Laplace and including even the inland explorers. Although the publication uses the very commercial name of the voyaging hero Dumont d'Urville, it seems to have been a classic piece of nineteenth-century ghost writing. It was a very successful publication and went through numerous editions and translations.Despite the long section devoted to Australia (Vol. VI, pp. 848-1049), this edition was not recorded by Ferguson (who does note French, German and Russian editions); nor is it recorded by Sabin, who does list a number of other versions (see 21211-21215). The French original was first published in 1834.This Swedish version appeared over three years and a long list of subscribers to the work appears in the first volume.
