        Autograph letter signed to Pickering

      1840. To William Pickering Concerning the Book of the Great Sea Dragons Hawkins, Thomas (1810-89). Autograph letter signed to publisher William Pickering (1796-1854). Sharpham Park, Augst. 4, 1840. 1 page plus integral address leaf. 227 x 190 mm. Stamp cut out from address leaf, not affecting text, light soiling & fraying. From fossil collector and dealer Thomas Hawkins, known for his collections of ichthyosaurs and plesiosaurs, some of which are still on display at the Natural History Museum in London. Hawkins was the author of several works, the most famous of which is his Book of the Great Sea Dragons, Ichthyosauri and Plesiosauri, published in 1840 by William Pickering and referred to in the present letter, which is written in the third person: "Mr. Hawkins with compts. to Mr. Pickering, will be glad to know why any delay should have occurred in verifying the plates sent by Mr. Standidge. "He will also be glad to hear what state his Poem is in. And also when the letter (which was enclosed to Mr. P. for the Russian Ambassador) was sent him, with a bound copy of the Sea-Dragons.""Mr. Standidge" is a reference to Standidge & Co., the London firm of lithographers. The "Poem" referred to in Hawkins's letter was most likely his The Lost Angel, and The History of the Old Adamites, Found Written on the Pillars of Seth (1840), also published by Pickering.

        I Principj della Economia Sociale Esposti in Ordine Idealogico.

      Napoli, Dalla Tipografia di Gennaro Palma, 1840. 8vo. In contemporary full blue cloth with blindstamped title to spine. Remains of paper-label to to lower part of spine. Extremities with a few bumps and light soiling. Internally with light brown-spotting throughout. 379, (1) pp.. The exceedingly rare first edition of Scialoja's seminal first publication. Scialoja - by Schumpeter characterized as a person of "conspicuous brilliance" - here presents himself as a follower of Say; to a large extend, his work is a tribute to French though. Scialoja published his work at the age of 23 and "I principj" is today being regarded as one of the landmark works of 19th century Italian economics. It anticipated many of the thoughts presented by Keynes in the first half of the 20th century and it was instrumental in the economic development of the Resorgimento. For Scialoja the main cause of underdevelopment and imbalances that prevent a balanced growth of the economy must be sought in the undeveloped agricultural sector and lack of capital. According to Scialoja you can still talk about underdevelopment if economic growth is not used to make further developments in the agrarian sector. Because of the need of continuous development (economic and techinically) Scialoja consider the business owner the most important part in the healthy growth. Public intervention is particularly wanted - and in this regard he anticipates Keynes by almost a century - to correct and guide the country's economy to prevent instabilities. Antonio Scialoja (1817 - 1877) graduated in law at Naples in 1841 and became a professor of political economy at University of Turin in 1846. Antonio Scialoja is considered a leading figure in the economic policy of the Risorgimento. As a close ally of Cavour he was one of the chief archictects of the economic aspect of the Risorgimento and functioned as Minister of Agriculture and Commerce in the Liberal government of Carlo Troja, finance minister in the interim government of Garibaldi, Secretary General of the Ministry of Agriculture in the first Ricasoli Government of the Kingdom of Italy, counselor of the Court of Auditors and senators from 1862, Minister of Finance in the Government of La Marmora, second Government of Ricasoli and finally Minister of Education in Government Lanza and in the second Government Minghetti.In 2006 the work was republished with a new introduction. Goldsmiths 31364Carl-Menger=Bibliothek 720The catalogue of Mattioli holds several later works by Scialoja but not the present. The catalogue of Einaudi lists the second edition (1846) and the first French translation (1844) but not the present first

        Beobachtungen über Lähmungszustände der untern Extremitäten und deren Behandlung.

Tafeln mit 34 Abb., minimal gebräunt, etwas fleckig, sehr gutes Exemplar Halbleinenband im Stil der Zeit; ExBibExpl des Rockefeller Inst. First edition of the "First description of acute anterior poliomyelitis, which Jakob von Heine (1799-1879) separated from other forms of paralysis; he described the deformities arising from the disease. He also called attention to congenital spastic paraplegia which, following Little's classical description, was termed "Little's disease". Garrison & Morton - - Vorrede: "Die Lehre von der Lähmung der unteren Extremitäten ist ungeachtet mancher darüber erschienener zum Theil sehr schätzbarer Abhandlungen und einer grossen Zahl bekannt gemachter Fälle noch sehr lückenhaft, und daran gewiss nicht nur die Schwierigkeit und seltene Gelegenheit, Rückgratshöhlen zu öffnen, sondern auch vorzugsweise die sich widersprechenden Resultate der Leichenöffnungen der an Rückenmarkskrankheiten Verstorbenen, Schuld. Unter diesen Umständen dürfte es vielleicht nicht ganz ohne Interesse seyn, wenn ich mir erlaube in folgenden Blättern eine Reihe von während 11 Jahren in meiner Heilanstalt gemachten Beobachtungen über eine Art von Paralyse der unteren Gliedmassen zusammen zu stellen und zu versuchen, ob sich hiebei nicht Andeutungen über diese sowohl in ihrer primären als secundären Natur noch wenig bekannte Krankheit ableiten lassen. - Erhält indessen die Wissenschaft selbst durch diese kleine Arbeit auch keinen grossen Gewinn, so bleibt mir jeden Falls das angenehme Bewusstseyn, das herbe Schicksal einer Anzahl unglücklicher Wesen erleichtert zu haben, Wesen, welche oft, kaum der Mutter Schoos entsprossen und sich bereits eines hoffnungsvollen Gedeihens erfreuend, durch ein unglückliches Geschick wieder in ihr erstes hülfloses Daseyn zurückgeworfen wurden."

Leider ist in Deiner Angelegenheit für den Augenblick nichts zu thun, da weder S. M. der König noch unser Intendant gegenwärtig hier sind! Ich werde aber heute noch an den Intendanten schreiben, der sich gegenwärtig in Leipzig aufhält, und ihm die Berücksichtigung Deines Wunsches auf das Angelegentlichste ans Herz legen. Daß sich unserem gemeinsamen Wunsche bedeutende Schwierigkeiten entgegen stellen, kann ich nicht leugnen; die Fächer der Tenoristen sind besetzt und S.

        The Book of Mormon

      Nauvoo, IL: Printed by Robinson and Smith, 1840. Third edition, second state. Leather bound. 571pp. Duodecimo [14.5 cm] Rebound in a plain calf with gilt bands and title on the backstrip. New endsheets and pastedowns. Internally clean with only minor sporadic foxing. The title page has had professional tissue repairs at the gutter. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell This is the uncommon second state of the third edition of the Book of Mormon, with the broken 'e' on page nine. Overall a nice copy of this copy of the Book of Mormon that was the first printed in Nauvoo (the first state of the third edition was printed in Cincinnati). Crawley states "One might guess that the second and third states represent later impressions which [Ebenezer] Robinson struck off in Nauvoo." The 1840 edition includes nearly fifty changes form the two earlier editions (Palmyra, 1830 - Kirtland, 1837). All later editions of the Book of Mormon descend from the 1841 Liverpool edition, which was reprinted from the 1837 Kirtland edition. Crawley 83. Flake/Draper 597. Auerbach I : 1170. Howes S623.

        Pl. 415 Common Cormorant The Birds of America, from Drawings Made in the United States and Their Territories

      New York & Philadelphia:: Audubon, J. J. & Chevalier, J.B.,, 1840-44.. First Royal Octavo. Matted in Ivory Rag Board . Fine condition with bright original hand-coloring/ . A fine original hand-colored lithograph on paper. Sheet size: 6.5 x 10.25 inches. Drawn from nature by J. J. Audubon, FRS, FLS and lithographed, printed and colored by JT Bowen, Philadelphia from The First Royal Octavo Edition of John James Audubon's The Birds of America. Includes the text from Audubon's Ornithological Biography. The Royal Octavo Edition of The Birds of America represents John James Audubon's desire to create a democratic (affordable) work based his magnum opus; the Double Elephant Folio Edition of The Birds of America. Satisfied with his research, as well as his portrayals of North America's native and distinct bird species, J.J. Audubon here rendered a miniature yet unique version of The Birds of America. As is the case with prolific artists, Audubon continued to improve upon a body of work which was viewed as perfection. During the mid-19th century, there were no photomechanical means of reproduction, every composition was then redrawn by hand, with the aid of the Camera Lucida. For this Royal Octavo Edition Audubon and his assistants translated the 435 compositions of the Double Elephant Folio edition into 500 unique compositions of individual species. Previously documented groups of heretofore unrelated birds were now separated and divided according to species, and portrayed either on a new botanical perch or within a renewed landscape. Unlike the life-sized portraits of the Double Elephant Folio edition each bird was now sized to scale on the octavo-sized plate; approximately 6.5 x 10.25 inches. With this slight alteration, Audubon created a perfected composition, and thus offered a charming vignette view of the bird, or family of birds in its natural setting. For the Royal Octavo Edition, Audubon enlisted America's premier lithographers, JT Bowen and Co. in Philadelphia and Endicott in New York to produce the work. Every composition was drawn on a limestone tablet, inked, printed and then hand-colored with watercolor. In this format Audubon presented the undocumented birds discovered during his explorations of the American West, but not previously included in the Double Elephant Folio Edition of The Birds of America. As with the folio edition, the Royal Octavo Edition was sold by subscription. One hundred individual packets of five hand-colored lithographs and accompanying text; Audubon's Ornithological Biography, was sent to the subscriber. It was issued the first and fifteenth of each month for four subsequent years. The pagination of the Royal Octavo Edition was organized to be bound in seven volumes. This successful and popular work of American ornithology was produced in an eventual eight editions, the final edition of which was issued in 1870 by George Lockwood, New York. (Wood, Casey.

        Maryland Whig Senator John Leeds Kerr (1780-1844) writes to a young man seeking a naval appointment and laments the recent death of President Harrison

      "Autograph Letter Signed ""John Leeds Kerr"" as U.S. Senator, one page, 8.25"" x 12.25"". Addressed by him on verso to ""Mr. William R. Atkinson/Monument Square/Baltimore."" Franked ""Free ?" John Leeds Kerr."" Oval postmarked ""Easton Maryland"" with ""April 14"" penned in the oval and ""free"" handwritten under Kerr's free frank. John Leeds Kerr had cast one of Maryland's 10 electoral votes for President William Henry Harrison in 1840 and represented Maryland in the U.S. Senate from 1841-1843. After one month in office, Pres. Harrison had died of pneumonia on April 4, 1841. In full ""On my return yesterday from Cambridge, where I had been attending the County Court, I received your letter, dated the 3d postmarked the 6th. Your patriotic, but youthful forebodings of the possible result of the illness of the President have been most lamentably fulfilled. The second Father of his Country is no more! and Millions mourn the event. The consequences cannot yet be fairly fully calculated, but the heart of the Patriot may be cheered with a form reliance on the Good Providence, which as Vouchsafed to lead the Republic through many dangers trials, before the coming of this awful calamity. Our Good Citizens must no longer grieve, as man without hope. There is a redeeming spirit in the Constitution and a fair and just confidence to be reposed in those who survive, with the power of Government in their hands, -all recently confided to them by the act or approbation of the People, - which will lead us out of present difficulties and the Ship of State once more into fair weather and an open sea.""I advise you, therefore, to apply yourself, with all the energies of your mind, to daily regular study. Go to the best Master of Mathematical Nautical Science. Read and Study the best General history, , of your own Country, learn all you possibly can, - of its geography ?" population ?" vast resources ?" government laws. Ask some sensible well informed man, near you, - such as Charles F. Mayer or David H. Husar (-don't be afraid to ask them-) what course of reading you had better pursue to qualify you for the honorable mode of life you aspire to follow in your Country service. But, you must go to the best School or Teacher to gain a knowledge of Navigation, at once. Read 'Paley's Moral Philosophy,' too, other good books on 'Moral Science'. In short, apply yourself completely in the pursuit of knowledge you will not fail. I am sorry I must write in haste, as I have many cases little time for them. It is improbable to say when you will succeed in obtaining a warrant, as you may perceive by the Secretary's letter. Go on, without repining at this, to fit yourself for the time when you may be fortunate enough to be called. It will be all the better for you that this may not happen for some time. With my best respects for your Mother."" Mounting remnants on verso at left and right edges show through. Partial splits at edges. Good condition."

        To the Followers of the "Latter Day Saints"

      Wiley, Printer, Cheltenham 1840 - 4pp. Sextodecimo [17.5 cm] Single leaf. Chip in left margin with loss (does not affect any text.) We can locate four institutional copies. Rare Anti-Mormon tract that covers the familiar ground of the Solomon Spaulding Manuscipt, but also covers new ground accusing the Mormon missionaries of duping people to get in a ship and fly to New Jerusalem "sometimes their followers are to be conveyed to the new Jerusalem in a flying ship, to alight on the top of Coomb Hill, which you all know is five hundred feet above the level of the sea."It also accuses the Mormon missionaries of proclaiming that they are going to build a brick wall across the Atlantic Ocean so converts may get to America "the sea is to divide, a road, with a brick wall on one side, and water on the other, is to be formed for you to pass over to America, the land of promise. Now, my good friends, you may not know that it is two thousand miles to America, and the Atlantic Ocean, through which you must pass, is four miles deep, so that the brick wall will be four miles high." The author also writes that Americans are "the must cunning and money getting people in the world", and for proof of this the author recounts the story of "Kentucky Tom" who discovered an "Island in the Ocean" and encouraged people to settle the island. "After living there several years, they discovered, one fine morning, that the Island had two large eyes, like unto a serpent; it appeared he had just awoke from a long sleep, after having gorged himself with dozen ships and their crews. When he saw the town that was built on his back, not quite liking such a burden, he wagged his tail and went to the bottom of the sea, with town, people, and crops, and from that day to this, Tom has never found out another islands."An interesting anti-Mormon work that covers new and fanciful ground.

        Vorbericht. Uiber die Anwendung des kalten Wassers.

      O. O., um 1840. - Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier. 66 beschr. SS. auf 38 Bll. Marmorierter Halblederband der Zeit mit goldgepr. Rückenfileten und blindgepr. Blütenstempeln. Gr.-8vo. Hübsche, sauber ausgeführte medizinische Handschrift über verschiedene medizinische Anwendungen kalter Güsse und Bäder sowie Schwitzkuren und Umschläge. Obwohl Johann Siegmund Hahn schon 1738 sein klassisches Werk zur Hydrotherapie vorgelegt hatte, sollte die Wasserheilkunde erst Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts mit Sebastian Kneipp ihren Durchbruch erleben. Die vorliegende Schrift gehört jedenfalls noch der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts an und bezieht sich u. a. auf die Methoden des seinerzeit berühmten schlesischen Naturheilkundlers und "Wasserdoktors" Vincenz Prießnitz (1799-1851). Der ungenannte Verfasser versammelt hier hydrotherapeutische Verfahren gegen Husten, Halsweh, Fieber, Zahnschmerzen, Nasenbluten, Augenleiden, aber auch Gicht, Koliken, Kindbettfieber, Lachkrampf, Frostbeulen, Tripper, ja sogar Pilzvergiftungen, Krebs und Geisteskrankheiten: "Behandlung eines Irren. Er wird in eine Wanne mit abgeschreckten Wasser gesetzt, welches 2 Zoll unter den Nabel geht, und dabei an Händen und Füßen gerieben, der Rüken wird ihm ebenfalls gerieben, und öfter Wasser über den Kopf und Nacken gegossen, auch läßt man ihn trinken, wen es möglich ist. Wenn sich das Wasser erwärmt hat, und man sieht, daß der Körper noch mehr Kälte ertragen kann, so wird noch mehr kaltes zugegossen, bis der Kranke starken Schauer bekommt. In diesem Zustand wird fort behandelt bis die natürliche Wärme wiederkehrt, dann läßt man ihn heraus, stelt ihm die Füße, und läßt ihm wo möglich 10 Mi. Bewegung machen, worauf er zu Bette gebracht." Mit mehreren Fallstudien. - Einband leicht berieben, sonst wohlerhalten. Besitzstempel "Mifka" am vorderen Vorsatz. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Athene rufa [Rufous Owl].

      Hullmandel & Walton -48 1840 - Lithograph with hand-colour; right margin frayed. Dimensions: 560 by 385mm. (22 by 15.25 inches). From the "Birds of Australia". JOHN GOULD 1804 - 1881 John Gould is widely considered the grearest and most ambitious of all Victorian ornithologists, combining both artistic skill and beauty and anatomical accuracy. Following in the great tradition of Natural History illustrators, such as Barraband and Audubon, Gould enlisted the services of some of the most notable ornithological artists, including Edward Lea, Joseph Wolf and his own wife Elizabeth to compile the most outstanding and comprehensive bodies of work in this field. Comprising of eighteen major works he illustrated the birds of the world, from Asia, New Guinea, Europe, and Great Britain to the Families of Toucans, Trogons and Hummingbirds. Perhaps the most important and valuable of his works is the "Birds of Australia", published in London 1840 - 48, with a supplement issued 1851 - 69, from which this work is taken. A contemporary viewer said of this work "Great as is the excellence of Mr Gould's former publications, there can be no doubt that the present work exceeds them all, both in an artistic and scientific point of view. Whether the dignified repose of the Eagle, the pert Malurus, the restless Parrakeet, or the lean and anxoius Wader, he is equally successful in his efforts". Indeed still today the work is noted as his most accomplished, inparticular the plates depicting parrots and cockatoos have propelled this work into becoming the most valuable of Gould's publictions. Aside from its value it is the most complete and comprehensive ornithological work on Australia ever completed, an incredible feat considering the continent had only been discovered seventy years previously. It was a direct result of the labours of Gould and his assistants, that well over three hundred new species were added to the existing list of birds know to inhabit Australia.
