        In Obitum viri eximii et celeberrimi navigatoris Jacobi Cook [Elegy on Cook's death, in:] Primitiae et Reliquiae.

      London: William Nicol, 1840. Octavo, presentation inscription by Wellesley to Sir John Williams, bookplate of Augustine Birrell, later owner's notes to endpapers and letter loosely inserted; a very good copy, uncut in the original drab boards, rebacked; with 12 pp. addenda in original drab wrappers, stitch-sewn, old folds, loosely inserted. A rare Cook piece: presentation copy of a privately-published work, inscribed to Sir John Williams "with Lord Wellesley's compliments" and signed "Wellesley". Beddie notes only the Mitchell Library copy of what is apparently a reprint of the following year.Pages 53-58 contain Wellesley's poem on the death of Captain Cook written at Christ Church, Oxford, in July 1780, which won the University Prize that year. In 1780 both Cambridge and Oxford offered prizes for poems on the subject of Cook's death, testament to the fervent interest in his fate throughout Europe. A footnote on the first page reads 'When this Poem was written, the particular circumstances of Captain Cook's death, especially his having fallen in the act of checking his crew, who were preparing to fire on the Natives of Owhyhee, (an Island first discovered by himself,) were unknown in Europe: otherwise they would have furnished ample materials for the conclusion of the Poem. This Poem was recited in the Theatre at Oxford, July 1780... '.Wellesley's slender collection of Latin verse, privately published late in his life, includes his juvenile and undergraduate Latin poems as well as some from his later life. The brother of the Duke of Wellington, Wellesley (1760-1842) had a public life including the Governorship-General of India.Loosely inserted in this attractive copy is a 12-page pamphlet of additional poems by Wellesley: an early owner's note suggests that it was purchased at the sale of the poet Samuel Rogers' library.

        Souvenirs d'un Aveugle. Voyage autour du monde... Chasses. Drame.

      Paris: H.-L. Delloye, 1840. Large octavo, 15 plates, untrimmed with an early library stamp on the title-page; a handsome copy in polished half calf, spine banded and gilt. Fine copy of this unusual addition to his voyage account by the prolific and eccentric Arago, which includes vivid descriptions of the natural history of Australia. The fifteen dramatic plates are all after Arago's own drawings, and include an image of an Australian Aborigine confronted with a rearing Black Snake.A rather good note in the Hill catalogue confirms that this is an unofficial supplement to the 1839 Hortet et Ozanne edition of Arago's Souvenirs d'un aveugle, a richly illustrated account that is "much prized". This is a popular account of hunting from around the world, with each of the sections devoted to a different animal. Two sections are devoted to animals of Australia, the Black Snake (pp. 152-165) and the Kangaroo (pp. 367-379). If anything, Arago's tale of the Black Snake is the more arresting, telling the story of an Aboriginal man bartering with a plantation owner before coming face to face with the snake among the eucalypts. The lengthy description of Sydney and its environs is based, of course, on his own visit when he completed the circumnavigation in the Uranie under the command of Louis de Freycinet.By the time this version of his book reached the public, the remarkable Arago had lost his sight: hence the new title which he reused for several different works, the Souvenirs d'un aveugle.With the bookplate of the Comte Polydor de la Rochefoucauld.

        The Ingoldsby legends or mirth and marvels by Thomas Ingoldsby Esquire [with] The Ingoldsby legends ... Second series.

      The very rare private issue of the first two volumes of Barham's most successful work, specially printed on heavier cream-toned paper, with the special limitation leaf, numbered and signed by Richard Bentley in the first volume. Plates and illustrations are by Leech, Cruikshank, and Buss. This copy is denoted copy #1 in ink, but a trace of an erasure suggests it may have been denoted #12, and then corrected at some point. The ownership signature of the author's son, R.H.D. Barham, who edited the third volume in 1847, appears on the half-title of the second volume. No private issue of the third volume was prepared. The rather complex bibliography of this private issue, as well as that of the public issue, is discussed at length by Sadleir in the context of his entries for the copies in his collection, pp. 27- 29. He owned copy #8 (the publisher's copy) of the private edition of the first volume, but lacked the second volume in this form. He had knowledge of only two other copies, Barham's own copy (later Owen Young's) at the NYPL, and a catalogue reference to a copy from the collection of D. Phoenix Ingraham, sold in "February 1836 [sic, i.e. 1936]." This copy of the first volume, like Sadleir's and the others, has on p. 236 the incomplete printing of "The Franklyn's Dogge." Sadleir's analysis suggested to him the following probable sequence: a) the private edition, b) copies of the public edition with p. 236 in the same form as it appears in the private edition, c) copies of the public edition with p. 236 blank; and d) copies of the public edition with the complete new version of the text on p. 236. The set in hand raises a new question in regard to the form of the binding of the private edition in its original state. Sadleir's copy, like the copy he located at NYPL, was bound in "Full brown Russia," with the title, imprint, and date on the spine, and the title on the upper board, and he describes that binding as "original." The binding described by Carter in reference to the twelve private copies is also in accord with Sadleir's description. However, the remnants of the binding preserved at the back of the present first volume -- see below -- are red moiré silk (as opposed to the brown cloth of the public edition), with the side panels and spine ornately blocked with a gilt design and the title within the gilt frame (the spine is rather worn, but legible). This suggests that only some of the twelve private copies were bound in leather, and others, or at least one, were bound in this special silk cloth, gilt extra.Binding: Full claret crushed levant, gilt extra, all edges gilt, by Riviere, with the side panels and spine of the original binding of the first volume bound at the end.Barham began writing the short pieces making up this series as contributions to his friend and classmate's Bentley's Miscellany. The subject matter was "at first derived from the legendary lore of the author's ancestral locality in Kent, but soon [was] enriched by satires on the topics of the day and subjects of pure invention, or borrowed from history or the 'Acta Sanctorum'. . . . The success of the 'Legends' was pronounced from the first, and when published collectively in 1840 they at once took the high place in humorous literature which they have ever since retained" (DNB). Provenance: With R.H.D. Barham's signature as noted above, and with the armorial bookplate of Sir David Lionel Salomons (1851-1925) in each volume.

A few minor stains, three faint horizontal fold lines, light toning. A generously margined unmarked copy. $750. * The historic Federal Bankruptcy Act of 1841 was enacted after the unprecedented commercial failures that followed the Panic of 1837. A relief measure, it was the first to permit voluntary bankruptcies. More than a generation had passed since the first Bankruptcy Act in 1800 and its repeal in 1803. The 1800 law had authorized creditors to place the debtor in bankruptcy and seize his assets, but it had not allowed debtors to choose bankruptcy. This 1840 Bill, which passed the Senate but was tabled in the House, was revived in the 27th Congress and passed in 1841. Its innovation, permitting voluntary bankruptcy petitions by persons "owing debts," tracks the 1841 Act, which was based on Congress's power to establish "uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies." Only two years after its enactment, charges of corruption and profligate expenditures, and at least one lower court's decision that the Act was unconstitutional, led to its repeal.

Although the pamphlet was printed by the press that the author established, he had largely turned it over to others in 1840. When the press printed his own works, however, it is possible that he once again played a larger role.With a small hole repaired, slightly tattered at the edges and minor foxing and stains, but still in good condition.

        Großes Wiener Affentheater. Zwei ausserordentlich große Vorstellungen von bewunderungswürdigen Fertigkeits-Uebungen, in Kunstreiten, Voltigiren, Seiltänzen mit und ohne Balancirstange, künstlichen Wendungen und höchst komischen Scenen durch Affen und Hunde auszuführen. (Unterzeichner:) Heinrich Schreyer.

      (München), 6. und 7. August 1840. Einblattdruck mit gr. Holzschnitt (15,5 x 34 cm). Blattgr.: 54,5 x 42,5 cm. Der amüsante Holzschnitt zeigt eine festliche Tischgesellschaft, von zwei Lakaien bedient - allesamt Affen in menschlichen Kostümen. Die Szene gehört zu der Vorstellung \"Die naschenden Kellner, oder die betrogenen Gäste\", folgerichtig sieht man einen Affen sich verbotenerweise am Wein gütlich tun. Aber auch andere Vorführungen werden geboten, \"der allgemein beliebte Tieger\" wird in einer Dressurnummer gezeigt und die Zwischenakte werden ausgeführt \"von den beiden berühmten Engländern: Herrn Folds und Mulligam, beigenannt \'die Zergliederten\'\". -\"Heinrich Schreyer, Menageriebesitzer und Thierhändler, war aus Lemberg in Galizien gebürtig (geb. 1793, gest. zu Wien 22. August 1847). Im Sommer 1847 kam er nach Wien, wo er im Prater das große Affentheater erbaute, welches er im Juni d. J. eröffnete. Der Zulauf zu dieser Sehenswürdigkeit - die Dressur der Hunde und Affen war psychologisch merkwürdig - war ein ungeheurer. In wenigen Wochen hatte S. einen Gewinn von über 20.000 fl. erzielt. Aber mit diesem Glücke seines Unternehmens schritt das Unglück in seiner Familie Hand in Hand. Kaum in Wien angekommen, erkrankten Frau und Kinder am Typhus. Kaum waren aber diese genesen, wurde er selbst von der Seuche hingerafft. Das Theater führte nun die Witwe fort. Später übernahm das Ganze Casanova, der in Schreyer’s Diensten gestanden und der nun einige Zeit noch in Wien Vorstellungen gab. Im Jahre 1861 brachte der damalige Volkssänger Fürst die Bude käuflich an sich, gestaltete sie um und eröffnete sie am 21. April 1862 als Singspielhalle, aus welcher das Volkstheater im Prater und zuletzt das „Fürst-Theater“ sich entwickelte. Anregend im Hinblick auf Abrichtung der Thiere, wirkte die Schreyer’sche Affenbude auf die Bevölkerung ganz anders, wie der Cancan der Fürst’schen Bühne! Noch sei bemerkt, daß Schreyer während seines kurzen Aufenthaltes in Wien im Jahre 1847 dem im genannten Jahre errichteten Affenhause in der Schönbrunner Menagerie die erste Affenbevölkerung lieferte.\" (Wurzbach XXXI, 305).
