        Some account of John Langdon [with manuscript] "Description of Gov. Langdon."

      n.p., Portsmouth, N.H. 1840 - 34 pp. Signed by the author, the grandson of the subject. Includes one page manuscript (once bound in) called "Description of Gov. Langdon" by a contemporary of his who also remarks that he had heard of a [this] pamphlet written by Langdon's grandson. Thus two contemporary descriptions of one of the Founding Fathers. John Langdon (1741-1819 ) was a vigorous supporter of the Revolution, sat on the New Hampshire committee of correspondence and a nonimportation committee. In 1774 he participated in the seizure and confiscation of British munitions from the Portsmouth fort. He had "contracts to build ships for the Continental navy, including the Ranger, which Captain John Paul Jones made famous during the war. In addition, Langdon worked to raise manpower and bring in French supplies for Continental forces. He not only helped to finance, but, as commander of a militia unit, he accompanied General John Stark's summer 1777 expedition that contributed to American victory at Saratoga. He was speaker of the New Hampshire legislature from 1777 to 1781. elected president of New Hampshire in 1788, Langdon resigned a year later to accept a seat in the U.S. Senate, which he held from 4 March 1789 until 3 March 1801. Shortly after arriving in New York he was elected the first president pro tempore of the Senate. In the early 1790s Langdon voted consistently with the Federalists, supporting Alexander Hamilton's plans to fund the national debt and establish a national bank" (ANBO). He returned later to New Hampshire and was elected to the State house and from 1805 to 1812 with the exception of one year, he was Governor of New Hampshire.

      , 1840. 1840. One seaman's document torn through at most of the folds, else the remainder very good overall, some soiling and spotting.. 7 sheets. The first four documents concern Nathaniel Sawyer (1784-1875) of Wilton, New Hampshire (son of Nathaniel Sawyer), who was a seaman, at least as early as 1804, and served during the War of 1812, when he was captured in Bengal and returned to England as a sailor on a ship of the East India Company, becoming a prisoner of war on his arrival. The last two documents concern the application by his mother, Prudence (1757-1839) to obtain a pension for the service during the Revolutionary War of her husband, Nathaniel Sawyer (1750-1807) under the 1838 law "An Act granting half-pay and pensions to certain widows." The documents are: 1. Dec. 12, 1804. Partially printed Seaman's Certificate with seal completed by hand, signed by Joseph Wilson as Collector of the District of Marblehead. Sawyer is listed as 21 years of age and six feet tall, dark complexion (8 3/4 x 14 3/4 inches). 2. Jan. 22, 1811. Partially printed Seaman's Certificate with seal completed by hand, signed by William W. Oliver, as (Deputy) Collector of the District of Salem and Beverly.

Note. to "certify that Nathaniel Sawyer has been with me on a voyage to the North of Spain... and that he has paid the customary hospital dues at the Custom House of this port to this day," signed Henry Russell, master. 4. Sept. 25, 1813. Fort William, Bengal. A letter certifying and sealed that Sawyer was captured in Bengal on the Schooner Alligator and is "being permitted to enter as a seaman on board the ... East India Company's ship Northhampton," to return to England, as long as he does not have to raise arms against the United States, and upon arriving in England, will be taken as a prisoner of war." Signed A. Hennessy, Town Major. 5. Sept. 3, 1838. Partially printed document. Sent by attorney Giles Yates to Asaph Sawyer of Cohoes, son of Prudence. in which Giles explains how to complete a New York State document, "Declaration in order to Obtain benefit of the act of Congress of the 7th July 1838 entitled 'An Act granting half-pay and pensions to certain widows'." In ink and pencil, with a long note on the last page explaining listing the information needed. Giles Fonda Yates (1796-1859) was a Schenectady attorney. 6. Sept. 30, 1840. Letter from Giles to [Asaph Sawyer] beginning "Since I last wrote you or conversed with on the subject of Mrs. Sawyer's claim, I have discovered the key to unravel the mystery" which turns out to be the specific names of people her husband served with as well as their attestations. Penciled notes on the verso detailing Sawyer's war record. But by then, Prudence Sawyer was dead.

First Edition. with page 213 correctly numbered rather than having "321"; with the "i" in "ing" present on the thirteenth sentence from the bottom of page 219; and with the hyphen at the end of the sixth sentence up on the same page located in its proper place. A front blank page in Vol. 1 is lacking. [BAL 16133]. John W. Robertson's bibliography of Poe (which gives the best collation) states that the earliest issue has page 213 misnumbered. Only 750 copies of the first edition were published- contains stories like "William Wilson" and "MS. Found In A Bottle." Lea and Blanchard decided to print the book after the success of Poe's story "The Fall Of The House Of Usher." However, Poe was to receive no royalties except for 20 free leather-bound copies, of which only a few remain today. [Antic Hay Books had one of these copies several years ago, inscribed by Poe and with an unknown original poem]. From the distinguished collection of important 19th Century Literature of Charles B. Foote, with his personal bookplate on the front pastedown in each volume. Foote's collection was auctioned in 1894 and this item, which originally included an original prospectus of "The Stylus" with five lines written by Poe in pencil, was lot #210. Very Good (covers nice and professionally reattached by a notable bookbinder; little occasional scattered foxing). Enclosed in a handsome cloth & leather clamshell box. [See images]. $20,000.00.

        (Mit einer typometrischen Karte des Wiener Umlandes). Linien-Kriegs-Schif. Im k.k. Prater (...) im runden Salon. Außerordentliche Kunstausstellung eines vollkommen meisterhaft ausgeführten und bis ins kleinste Detail ausgerüsteten großen Linien-Kriegs-Schiffes, von 120 Kanonen mit 1000 Mann Matrosen, Soldaten, Schiffsjungen (...) ganz genau hergestellt nach dem engl. Admiralsschiffe „Neptun“.

      Gedruckt bei Franz Raffelsperger, (Wien), um 1840. . Großformatiges Plakat mit Holzschnitt der HMS Neptune und einer typometrischen Karte der Wiener Umgebung. 83 x 56 cm. Auf gelblich-orangenem Papier gedruckt und mittig aus zwei Bögen zusammengesetzt, mit horizontaler und vertikaler Knickfalte. Steuerstempel im linken Rand. Wohlerhalten. Äußerst seltenes Plakat, weder bibliographisch noch in öffentlichem Besitz nachweisbar. Aus der Druckerei des für den typometrischen Landkartendruck berühmten Franz Raffelspergers und mit einer kleinen derartigen Karte im linken oberen Rand. Diese hat mit dem Plakatzweck offenbar kaum etwas zu tun, da sie nicht detailliert genug ist, um dem Betrachter einen Hinweis auf den Veranstaltungsort o.ä. zu geben. Es handelt sich daher wohl eher um einen frühen typometrischen Gehversuch Raffelspergers oder ein zum Zweck der Eigenwerbung angebrachtes Schmuckelement. – Die unterzeichnende Ausstellerin Theresia Lindner (Lebensdaten unbekannt) beschreibt das 23fach verkleinerte Modell der voll aufgetakelten HMS Neptune als ein „Kunstwerk (das) 6000 Fuß Schnüre am Tackelwerk trägt, über 8000 fl. C. M. kostet, und daß 8 Personen gegen 4 Jahre mit der Zustandebringung desselben unermüdlich beschäftig waren“. Das Modell war „2 Klaftern lang und 2 Klaftern hoch“ (ca. 3,80 m) und war „aus Holz gebaut und mit Kupfer beschlagen“. Die 1797 vom Stapel gelaufene Neptune war ein britisches Linienschiff zweiter Klasse mit 98 Kanonen auf drei Decks und spielte eine wichtige Rolle in der Schlacht von Trafalgar. Sie war in der von Horatio Nelson auf der Victory angeführten Luv-Linie eingesetzt und wurde in schwere Kämpfe verwickelt. Nach der Schlacht schleppte sie die schwer beschädigte Victory mit Nelsons Leichnam an Bord nach Gibraltar. Im Text wird angekündigt, daß auch die Pläne sämtlicher Schlachten der Neptune ausgestellt sein würden, ob es sich dabei um ebenfalls von Raffelsperger typometrisch gedruckte Seekarten handelte, konnten wir bislang nicht eruieren.

      [London: R. and E. Taylor], 1840. First edition. 4to., 59 pp., 2 leaves of plates. Later wrappers with printed labels on the front wrapper and spine. Extracted from Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 130. Fine. Housed in a newly made pamphlet case of cloth-backed paper over boards, with printed labels on the upper cover and spine. Sir John F.W. Hershel (1792 - 1871) was the son of the renowned astronomer, Sir William Herschel. His university years showed him to be a gifted mathematician, resulting in his election as a Fellow of the Royal Society. After brief forays into legal studies and an academic career at Cambridge, he became his father's assistant late in 1816. His independent means allowed him to pursue his interests in the sciences; among them was the study of light. In the spring of 1831, he conducted a series of experiments on the light sensitivity of salts of platinum; his earlier experiments with hyposulphites to dissolve "muriate of silver" applied to those with platinum salts, brought him to the edge of codifying the photographic process. He shared the results of these experiments with his friends, David Brewster, Charles Babbage, and William Henry Fox Talbot. His enduring scientific pursuit was the study of light, and as the first to embrace photography as a scientific tool, he invented numerous processes.With the announcement of Daguerre's process on 22 January 1839, and Talbot's announcement within a few days, he made and fixed his own paper based photographs by 30 January 1839, and he had the foresight to reverse the negative to positive tones. Herschel presented his findings in a paper he read to the Royal Society on 14 March 1839, in which he stressed the superior qualities of hyposulphite of soda to common salt for the "fixing" of photographs. He withdrew his paper from publication out of consideration for his friend, Talbot, and only a brief abstract was published.In, On the Chemical Action of the Rays of Light..., his first full published paper on photography, he stresses the necessity of using achromatic lenses, he introduced the terms negative and positive into the nomenclature, he described a process for making direct positive photographs and both negative and positive photographs on glass, the superiority of silver bromide over other silvers salts, and he predicts full color photography, having made a color photograph of the spectrum in 1839, in which he was unable to "fix" the colors.WorldCat locates nine copies.

        Groningen, Tussen Beide Markten - ca. 1840-1860.

      ?Tusschen de Beide Markten Groningen?. Lithografie vervaardigd ca. 1840-1860 door Steendrukkerij J.H. v/d. Weijer te Groningen naar een tekening van Sybolt Berghuis (1820-1896). Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 41,5 x 46 cm.Gezicht van de Groningse binnenstad naar het westen, Tussen Beide Markten van de Grote Markt naar de Vismarkt. In de achtergrond de Aa-toren.In het midden van de 19de-eeuw kent Groningen een periode van grote bevolkingsgroei waarbij omwille van stadsuitbreiding de poorten werden gesloopt en de vesting werd ontmanteld. Groningen werd de zesde stad van Nederland. Vanaf 1854 is er een gemeentelijke gasfabriek, waardoor de openbare weg, maar ook veel interieurs van winkels en woningen nu voor het eerst voldoende werden verlicht. Eveneens in de jaren 1850 kwam er een einde aan de private mestvaalten binnen de stad en werd er een begin gemaakt met de aanleg van riolering. Pas vanaf 1880 kregen woningen een aansluiting op de waterleiding.Het betrekkelijke isolement waarin Groningen verkeerde, werd toen voor wat betreft landverkeer verbroken. De eerste bestrate rijksweg, naar Assen, werd geopend in 1825, maar werd pas in in 1839 doorgetrokken naar Zwolle. In 1842 en 1849 volgden de Friesestraatweg en de weg naar de grens richting Hannover. Pas als laatste grote stad in ons land maakte Groningen in 1866 kennis met het spoor.In het witte gebouw links op de prent, het zgn. Blokhuis, verkoopt men manufacturen. In 1893 zou het ?telefoonbureel? van de Nederlandsche Bell Telephoon Maatschappij zich hier vestigen, waar telefonistes de verbindingen legden voor telefoon-abonnees van de stad. (Thans bevindt zich op deze plek Bakkerij Bart.) Er tegenover was de paraplu- en parasolwinkel van Lestrade gevestigd. Meer richting Vismarkt zien we ook de lakenwinkel van J.G. Bakker.Tussen Beide Markten anno 2015Prijs: ?925,-.

Gernsheim - Incunabula of British Photographic Literature No. 1068. Roosens and Salu fail to list this. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Deux Années de l'Histoire d'Orient 1839-1840: Faisant Suite A L'histoire De La Guerre De Mehemed-Ali En Syrie Et En Asie-Mineure, 1832-1833,(TWO VOLUMES).

      Delloye, Libraire-Editeur, Paris 1840 - 8° (225 x 140 mm), Volume I: VIII-391 pp., 1 plan of the battle of Nezib / Volume II: 399 pp. half-titles, original publishers’ yellow original wrappers preserved, some spotting, plan lightly browned, uncut, book plate of Sefik E. Atabey. This work is a sequel to Cadalvene’s Histoire de la Guerre de Mehmet-Ali, 1837. It is a continuation of Cadalvene’s interest in Mehmet Ali. Cadalvene was a business man who spent several years in Egypt, from 1829 to at least 1834, as a representative of certain French business interests. After his campaign in Syria, Mehmet Ali was offered loans by a number of French banks, and Cadalvene, representing Rothschild’s, offered to lend him 100 million French francs. While waiting for Mehmet Ali to make a decision, Cadalvene travelled extensively in the region, gathering the materials for his books. The first of these, L’Egypte et La Nubie, 1836, is an account of a voyage up the Nile which he wrote with J. de Breuvery, who accompanied him on his travels. Later he turned his attention to Mehmet Ali’s aspirations in the Levant, and he presents us with an acute portrait of the ambitious Pasha of Egypt. Navari 261; Carre I, pp. 280-82, 294.

Hutt, and Alex. Busby. Their evidence gives and account of the natives and their lands, mission labours, origin and history of the New Zealand Company, and the necessity for government and regulated colonisation."
