        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Leipzig, 3. Juli 1841.. 1½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Blaues Papier.. An seinen Freund Georgi, der ihm eine Anfrage durch ihren gemeinsamen Bekannten Wienhold zukommen ließ. "[...] Herzlich Leid hat es mir gethan, daß Du glauben konntest, mein Nichterscheinen in Eurem Mitwochsklube sei einigen Aeußerungen, die von Deiner Seite gethan worden, zuzuschreiben; erst durch Deinen Brief habe ich erfahren, daß wirklich solche Aeußerungen gethan worden sind [...]". Viel wichtiger sei Bülau das Studium der Geschichte oder das "Beobachten des Gedeihens oder der Gefahren unseres geliebten deutschen Vaterlandes". Sehr gern möchte er weiter dem "Mittwochsclub" beiwohnen: "[...] die Zeit, die mir bleibt, dem frohen Jugendleben zu widmen, wünsche ich so oft u. so viel wie möglich, in Eurer heiteren Gesellschaft zu verbringen. Sollten auch vielleicht unsere politischen Ansichten etwas auseinander laufen, was ich nicht glaube u. nicht hoffe, unsere politischen Angelegenheiten, die sich in unserem späteren Leben noch recht deutlich zeigen und klären werden, so soll doch dieser Unterschied unserer Meinungen nicht Schuld daran sein, uns gegenseitig zu entfremden [...]". - Bülau trat mit einer Reihe bedeutender Veröffentlichungen hervor, darunter die "Geschichte des europäischen Staatensystems" (3 Bde, 1837-1839) und "Geheime Geschichten und rätselhafte Menschen" (1850-1860).

        A Residence of Eleven Years in New Holland and the Caroline Islands... A Residence of Eleven Years in New Holland and the Caroline Islands: being the Adventures of James O'Connell. Edited from his verbal narration

      Boston: B.B. Mussey, 1841. Duodecimo; contemporary full sheep, rebacked. Oxley, Parramatta and life with the Aborigines. Second edition of this important account. A homeless London waif, O'Connell, aged about eleven, sailed for Port Jackson as a cabin-boy (or perhaps as a prisoner) on board a convict ship. During some years' residence in New Holland, he 'accompanied Oxley on a six months' exploring expedition. Thus he became acquainted with the condition of the colony, the discipline of the convicts and the character of the Aborigines...' (Ferguson). With an important chapter printing his own thoughts on the differences between "northern and southern" tribes.In about 1826 O'Connell joined the whaler John Bull which having first stopped off in New Zealand made for the Caroline Islands with the view of moving on to the Sea of Japan. With the Captain drunk on deck, the ship was wrecked on a reef, and whilst the entire crew managed to escape in the boats, few survived the following three days and four nights afloat. Taken in by the natives, O'Connell and his shipmate George Keenan remained for five years, during which time the author married, fathered five children and was tattooed. His description is 'the first extensive ethnographic account of the island of Ponape' (Day). A five-page appendix gives a vocabulary of the language of the Caroline Islands.Taken off the island by the American schooner Spy, O'Connell and Keenan were imprisoned in Manila under suspicion of being either pirates or escaped convicts. With no evidence against them they were eventually discharged and sent to Macao and then Canton, from where they travelled to Peking to join a caravan for Constantinople. On reaching the Imperial city the travellers abandoned their plans and made for Canton overland and took ship for Halifax, Nova Scotia. O'Connell alone finally made New York in the autumn of 1835 and became the first tattooed man exhibited in the United States, returning to his circus roots.Copies of this Boston-published second edition are recorded with a pair of plates, but this unillustrated version appears to be the more common issue.

Very good. 8vo, pp. viii, 96, with lithographic frontispiece showing an image in positive and negative, and 29 illustrations in the text.

Overall about very good. Hunt (1807-1887) was a chemist who played a prominent role in the early decades of photography in Britain. This volume, which incorporated much of his own research as well as a survey of important contributions to the field, is generally regarded as "the first book on photography in English" and was, according to Hannavy, "the most comprehensive account of photography photographic process published to that date." A rare and seminal work.

        Letter Signed to an unnamed correspondent, 4 pages 8vo (the last a little soiled), Tapton House, 25 June 1841.

      - Agreeing to lecture to a Mechanics' Institution, and suggesting that the Insitution should be supplied with models to illustrate the mechanical powers and the various steam engines. '. I think however it will be more clear to the young Mechanics if I get models made of all the mechanical powers to lecture on, the models will continue to be useful to all new members. I think by and Bye you ought to have skeleton models of the condensing Engine, High Pressure Engine, Locomotive Engine & Steam boat Engine. These models ought to be made in sections to show the interior working part of the different Engines. .'Stephenson was an enthusiastic supporter of the various Mechanics' Institutes which had grown up in the northern counties. As early as 1824 he had presided at a public meeting for the purpose of establishing an Institute in Newcastle, and he became himself a very popular lecturer. Samuel Smiles (Lives of the Engineers, 1861, vol. 3. page 362) describes the effect:'On more than one occasion, the author [Smiles] had the pleasure of listening to George Stephenson's homely but forcible addresses at the annual soirées of the Leeds Mechanics' Institute. He was always an immense favourite with his audiences there. His personal appearance was greatly in his favour. A handsome, ruddy, expressive face, lit up by bright dark-blue eyes, prepared one for his earnest words when he stood up to speak and the cheers had subsided which invariably hailed his rising. He was not glib, but he was very impressive. .'

Extremities worn and Joints neatly reinforced. Some foxing occasionally affecting plates and water stains on edges of the first three and last plates touching the edges of the images; otherwise a fine copy. Included are composite views of the entrance to Dover Harbour with smaller vignette views of loafers on beach, watching shipping and of a hulk and fishing vessels beached on Dover waterfront. Prout's Microcosm, was a drawing book for the use of students and artists in practising groups of people and maritime scenes for compositional ideas. Samuel Prout (1783-1852) was a water colour painter, print artist and a pioneer of lithography. From 1819-29 he toured extensively in France, the Low Countries and Italy and sketches in this volume reflect these visits including Normandy and Venice. Prout's draughtsmanship was admired by Ruskin who praised him in Modern Painters and The Stones of Venice. According to COPAC these plates were first issued as part works in 1822, but this 1841 volume was the first full edition in book form. KENT DOVER TOPOGRAPHY KENT - EUROPE DRAWINGS 19TH CENTURY KENT

        The Book of Mormon: An Account Written by the Hand of Mormon Upon Plates Taken from the Plates of Nephi

      Liverpool: Printed by J. Tompkins, for Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, and Parley P. Pratt. By order of the translator., 1841. First European Edition. Leather bound. 643 pp. Sextodecimo [14.5 cm]; bound in full brown Moroccan with decorative floral gilt stamped borders to boards. Title gilt stamped on the backstrip. Gilt stamped floral panels between bands. Decorative gilt dentelles. All edges gilt. Very good. Gentle rubbing to extremities of boards. Backstrip bumped and starting at head. Minor staining to page 582. A nice presentation binding of the fourth published 'Book of Mormon'. This edition of the Book of Mormon was the first printed outside of the United States and the fourth overall. The 1841 printing was a faithful reprint of the 1837 Kirtland edition. With the exception of the two Nauvoo editions, all subsequent Book of Mormon editions in English descend from this 1841 Liverpool edition. This is the first Book of Mormon to include an index. At a Conference in the spring of 1840, Heber C. Kimball, Brigham Young, and Parley P. Pratt were tasked with securing a copyright and printing the first British edition. The three men quickly took to their charges and within three weeks Young asked Smith's permission to begin printing. The men hired John Tompkins to print five thousand copies. Tompkins finished the job in January 1841. Twenty copies were immediately sent to Heber C. Kimball and Wilford Woodruff who were laboring in London at the time. The two promptly (the same day in fact) secured copyright at Stationers' Hall and deposited five copies. Mormon Imprints 12. Crawley 98. Flake/Draper 598.

First performed in Paris at the Theatre Italien on January 7, 1842. "When, after the death of Varela, the original version of the Stabat mater fell into the hands of the Parisian publisher Aulagnier, who printed it and arranged a performance, Rossini, partly at the prompting of Troupenas and partly because the work published by Aulagnier was a composite, disowned this version and decided to complete the work himself. The revised Stabat mater was ready by the end of 1841. The first performance, arranged by the brothers Leon and Marie Escudier, was in Paris at the Theatre Italien on 7 January 1842. It was received with enormous enthusiasm. The first Italian performance, at Bologna, followed in March under the direction of Donizetti." Philip Gossett in Grove online
