        The reception of the Rev J Williams at Tanna, in the South Seas, the day before he was massacred

      London: George Baxter, 1841. Colour Baxter print, approx. 230 x 340 mm. very good, mounted. A prelude to violence.... The prelude to one of the most famous scenes of South Seas violence: the massacre of the missionary Reverend John Williams at Erromanga in the New Hebrides. George Baxter has represented, in colour, an event in Pacific history of both 'sublime and dreadful interest, and the treatment of it worthy to commemorate the momentous occurrence it represents...' (Courtney Lewis, George Baxter His Life and Work, p. 102). At this period, the missionary societies were both active and wealthy and the more famous missionaries were given the status of heroes. Reverend John Williams was considered such a celebrity, and in 1839 when he was killed by natives on the island of Erromanga, Vanuatu he became a famous martyr.Baxter's revolutionary colour-printing process, using oils, was patented in 1835. The print was also issued in sepia: this is the far more interesting coloured version, and remains in its original nineteenth-century gilded frame, complete with inscription plaque which although chipped carries the full formal caption including Baxter's imprint (in which he notes himself as "Patentee" of the colouring process).

        Narrative of a Recent Imprisonment in China after the Wreck of the Kite

      London: W.H. Dalton, 1841. Duodecimo, engraved title page and four plates (including frontispiece); a few spots affect the original gilt decorated green cloth, yet an attractive copy. Caged and manacled during the Opium Wars. Classic account of shipwreck and imprisonment during the first opium war: 'My only apology for launching this unvarnished narrative upon the world is, that, after my return to England, I wrote for the amusement of my friends, a short account of my shipwreck and subsequent imprisonment in the Celestial Empire; and considering that my sufferings and adventures would by this time create an interest with the public at large, they have strongly urged me to publish this narrative. This I have ventured to do, hoping that the faults may be overlooked, and all indulgence shown to a young merchant sailor.'The plates illustrate four scenes: bedraggled mariners clinging to the rigging of the wrecked Kite, a canal in China, a Mandarin and his retinue, and prisoners detained in impossibly small cages.

        Colonial Policy of 1840 and 1841, As Illustrated by the Governor's Despatches, and Proceedings of the Legislative Council of New South Wales

      London: John Murray, 1841. Octavo, single lithographed map; a very good uncut copy in elegant polished half calf with gilt lettering. With a curious map of Eastern Australia. The earlier of Sir Edward Macarthur's two books advocating immigration. The eldest son of John and Elizabeth, Edward Macarthur was born at Bath in 1789, and accompanied his parents to New South Wales in 1790.As one of the first free settlers in the colony, he was a strong advocate of immigration, and served as Thomas Macqueen's agent in arranging the first shipment of free immigrants in 1824, which gave great stimulus to agriculture.The map illustrates a division of New South Wales and the subsequent creation of a smaller colony. Titled Eastern Australia or Territory of New South Wales, the map is captioned 'territory to which the Colony might be reduced by Bill of the last session' with reference debate in the House of Commons knocked down by Sir Robert Peel.

        Samuel Bealey Harrison 1841 cover letter about Townships corrections to be included in the proposed District of Huron

      Kingston: Samuel Harrison, 1841. 1st Edition. No binding. Very Good. A complete letter, 13" x 8", folded to 6 1/4" x 3 1/4", dated Nov 11 1841 signed SB Harrison. Samuel Bealy Harrison (Canada's most powerful parliamentarian during 1841-2 and Canada's first Premier (Prime Minister).This manuscript cover letter written by Harrison is from his Provincial Secretary's office in Kingston to Daniel Lizars Esq. of Goderich. It's content are about the Proclamation constituting the new Townships and the insertion of Bosanguet is clearly an error that the Township forming part of the Western DIstrict (of Huron). As well comments on the Ashfield and the range of townships to the northward being included in the Proclamation when the act so explicitly constitutes them a portion of the District. He goes on to say he will talk to the Attorney General to get these issues mentioned corrected.Samuel Bealey Harrison was a lawyer, miller, reformer politician, and a judge of the County of York. He was Joint Premier of the Province of Canada for Canada East from 1841 to 1842 with William Henry Draper PM for Canada West. Draper was a member of the Family Compact and Harrison was a moderate Reformer, the predecessor of the Liberal Party of Canada. In February 1842 he was named one of three directors of the Welland Canal which had been taken over by the government. He also served in the Senate for the University of Toronto. "One significance of The Act of Union in 1841 was that it precipitated passing of the District Councils Act (1841) in Upper Canada, introduced by Samuel Bealey HARRISON, Governor Lord Sydenham's most trusted minister, which even Robert Baldwin, considered the "father of Ont's municipal govt system, admitted was an improvement over his and his father's." "Union of the Canadas: 1841-1958" by JMSCareless, 1967"Despite his long judicial tenure, Harrison's brief political career is more significant. Although he kept his position through changing ministries under Sydenham, Bagot, and Metcalfe, his abrupt and voluntary departures first from the Executive Council and then from politics make it clear he was no placeman. The key to his policy would seem to be that though he believed progress towards responsible government both good and inevitable, he understood it could be severely set back by a premature clash with the Colonial Office. If gradual constitutional advance was his aim, he contributed significantly to its achievement. His part in introducing the resolutions of 1841 and in sponsoring the entry into government of Baldwin and La Fontaine in 1842 certainly forwarded responsible government; his role in partially out manoeuvring Baldwin on both these occasions and in contributing to the latter's defeat in the election of 1844 did much to avert a confrontation with the imperial government until, by 1847, the Colonial Office itself was willing to accept the concept of internal self-government for the Canadas."DCB on-line.

        5 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Gießen, München u. Wildbad Gastein, 1841-1864.. Zus. 10 S., 8° u. 4°.. Inhaltsreiche Briefe an den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Einige Randein- bzw. -ausrisse (ohne Textverlust). -

Il fratello Venanzio fu a sua volta scultore e intagliatore. Giovanni Wenzel, specializzato nell'incisione al bulino, fu attivo a Roma a cavallo della metà del XIX secolo, lavorando soprattutto su soggetti religiosi, principalmente da opere di Michelangelo e di Raffaello.

        Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan

      New York, New York: Harper & Brothers, 1841 Two volumes, complete, both are First Editions. Professionally rebound in full linen over board covers, with gilt decorations from original covers inset on front covers. Remnants of gilt titles from original covers glued to spine. A handsome set. 424 and 474 pp. With 65 engraved plates, made from daguerreotype views and drawings by Frederick Catherwood, and a folding map that is tipped in. Interior pages are clean with some age toning along margins and slight foxing that does not impinge on text or illustrations. Names of two former owners inked to the original second front free end paper. Two new end papers, front and rear, added as part of the restoration, in both volumes. The fold-out map is in very good condition, with no tears or stains. **This is the first edition of this classic and renowned work on Central America, one of the most important works in the field of MesoAmerican Archeology and History. The author was the first westerner to explore the remains of the Mayan civilization after hiking through the dense Central American forest. The illustrator was an English artist with a background in Archeology. For the first time, he illustrated Mayan ruins, that had never been seen before by Westerners, spurring a movement to preserve and conserve these landmarks for all humanity. A very good copy of an essential book on Central American Archeology. ***Please note, due to the weight of these two volumes, expect additional shipping charges outside the continental United States. Inquire as to exact cost.

Glauben Sie nicht, mein verehrter Freund, daß wir uns hier unglücklich fühlen ... Nachdem wir hier ein recht ruhiges Plätzchen gefunden, von dem sich das Weitere abwarten läßt, ist auch meiner Frau heimathlicher, aber Sie verlor alles außer mir u. den Kindern; ich fand einen Bruder u. sehr geliebte Jugendfreunde wieder, unter ihnen den refflichen Dr. Karl Beck, Prof. der Lat. Sprache an der Cambridge Harvard University, den Stiefsohn de Wette's ..." - - Nähere Schilderungen seiner Eindrücke sammle er in einem Manuskript, das er "zur Verbreitung an meine Freunde" senden wolle. "... Den miserablen Namen Kahldorf werde ich fortbehalten, er ist einmal bekannt u. ich glaube, mancher kennt mich seit der Universität unter keinem anderen Namen. - Ich hatte viele Jahre vorher vorausgesehen, daß mich eine Katastrophe treffen wird ... Man hatte mich 1831 im Staatsdienst nur gefesselt, weil man fürchtete ich könne gefährlich werden ..." - 1831 hatte Heinrich Heine Wesselhöfts Schrift "Kahldorf über den Adel in Briefen an den Grafen M. von Moltke" herausgegeben. - - Später gründete Wesselhöft mit seinem Bruder Wilhelm eine Heilanstalt in Vermont; schwer erkrankt kehrte er 1852 nach Deutschland zurück. - - Sehr selten.
