        The Slighted Vow; or, an Incident Upon the Mississippi

      Philadelphia: American Baptist Publication Society. Hardcover. Fair. c. 1841. 36 p. 15 cm. B&w frontispiece. Hardcover. Dark cloth. Marbled boards. Spine worn. Chipped spine label. Corners bumped, and boards rubbed bare on fore edge. Wormhole in front hinge. Owner's sig. in endpaper. Foxing. Pencil notes in endpaper. On Feb. 2, 1896, a fire broke out at the American Baptist Publication Society building, destroying much of the collection. The following June, Samuel B. Colgate donated his personal collection of Baptist documents to Colgate University in Hamilton, NY. This short testimonial piece was published by the Society in its early years, before the fire. In addition to its religious elements, this is a travel memoir. The framed narrative of Judge N. susinctly chronicles his journey from Alabama to Mississippi and Ohio, mentioning Natchez, Pittsburg, Wheeling and New Orleans. The narrator describes the river, and their method of travel. This includes three footnotes of interest. The first explains their vessel, an "ark" which is described as: "a flat and wide boat made of rough hewn timber, to float with the current upon the Western waters. They are generally made for a single voyage down the river, and, after the freight they bear is discharged, they are ignominiously doomed to be broken up for firewood, or to build a temporary shanty" (p. 7). The second footnote suggestively describes "Sawyers": "Sawyers are tall trees whose roots, in their voyage down the river, catch on the bottom and thus anchor them, while the tops, reaching just above the surface, bow most gracefully as the waters rush by them. They are very dangerous to steam boats going up stream. Striking them with great force, they run them through their bottom, and sink almost immediately" (p. 9-10). The final footnote is a short note that "Wholly sunken trees are called snags" (p. 10). The footnotes, and the detailed descriptions of sights and sounds along the river, make this more than a simple religious tract. The religious element to the story is simple. On their return home, a near accident causes the Judge's brother, Caleb, to promise devotion to God if he should live. But Caleb's heart does not follow his words. Even upon a chance meeting with another man of faith, an early Puritan minister of New England, Caleb denies the vow he made on the ark. Coming back to the present, our narrator, a friend of Judge N., meets Caleb and relates his unfortunate death, which occurs before he can repent. Predates Mark Twain's "Tom Sawyer" by at least twenty five years. A piece of desirable Americana, this petite text offers a glimpse into the religious and regional history of the Mississippi. World Catalogue locates only one copy in the New York Society Archives, and offers an approximate date of 1841.

        Suez.

      Moon, F.G., London 1841 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.

With a large folding map handcoloured in outline. 8vo, 3/4 brown calf over marbled boards, lettered in gilt on a black morocco label on the spine with gilt-tooled bands and blind stamps. xvi, folding map, 143, 2 pp ads. A handsome and clean copy, with a small closed tear on the folding map. VERY RARE IN INSCRIBED STATE AND RARE IN FIRST EDITION FORMAT. INSCRIBED ON THE HALF-TITLE, "The R. W. B. from his friend the Author". "The following essay has for its object to establish the early geography of Central Africa on a solid basis. It aims at offering a clear and well-grounded explanation of the geographical descriptions of Negroland, transmitted to us by Arab writers; and by thus connecting the past with the present, at giving an increased value to the historical information derived from the same sources. The attainment of that end will throw a steady light on the past condition of a country now awakening a general interest. It will enable us to trace some important political revolutions; to discern the nations which have stood forth politically eminent, and to estimate correctly, by means of a lengthened and authentic retrospect, the process of civilization in Africa." (preface). This is an especially scarce book dealing with the early geography of Central Africa based upon Arabic writers, principally Ibn Battuta.

The Invention of the modern otoscope - nighteen years before Tröltsch (GM 3374)! - Erste Ausgabe des Ohrenspiegels - 10 Jahre vor der Erfindung des Augen-Spiegels durch Helmholtz! - Die Hals-Nasen-Ohrenheilkunde konnte sich erst so spät zu einem eigenen Fach entwickeln, da die zu beobachtenden und zu behandelnden Organe in tiefen dunklen Körperhöhlen liegen; die dem bloßen menschlichen Auge nicht sichtbar sind. So bedurfte es erst der Erfindung eines perforierten Hohlspiegels durch Friedrich Hoffmann, 1841, mit dessen Hilfe die Beleuchtung dieser Organe möglich wurde. - Friedrich Hofmann (1806-1886) Arzt, Geheimer Sanitätsrat, in Burgsteinfurt beschreibt seinen perforierten Hohlspiegel, der die Beleuchtungstechnik vor allem im HNO- und Augen-Bereich revolutioniert, aber auch bei der Urethroskopie verwendet wird (HAKEN, GRÜNFELD). Die Erfindung war einfach, er kratzte den spiegelnden Belag im Zentrum eines runden Toilettenspiegels ab und benutzte dieses Loch als Durchblick Die Bedeutung dieser Entdeckung wurde zuerst nicht erkannt und 1859 beschrieb v. Tröltsch den sogenannten Ohrenspiegel erneut. Seit dieser Zeit erfuhr er eine weite Verbreitung. -cf.

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

      Samuel Harrison, Kingston 1841 - 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 Toront, "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, Harrisonís 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 latterís 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 [Attributes: First Edition]

        HEATH'S BOOK OF BEAUTY

      London: Longman, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1841. n. Hardcover. 244 x 171 mm (9 5/8 x 6 3/4"). [1] p.l., vi, [ii] (plate list), 280 pp. Edited by the Countess of Blessington. Very appealing contemporary Spanish calf, covers framed by double gilt rules and floral garland roll, raised bands, spine heavily gilt in compartments featuring central floral sprig within a lozenge of small tools and volute cornerpieces, red morocco label, turn-ins with floral gilt roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With 16 line and stipple engraved portraits, as called for. Light rubbing to extremities, occasional tiny rust spots or faint marginal smudges, otherwise A FINE COPY, clean and fresh internally, in a lustrous binding with virtually no wear. Featuring the especially pleasing design of Spanish calf (resembling batiked or tie-dyed textiles), this is a binding at least as beautiful as the ladies pictured and praised within the text. From a family of respected English engravers, author Charles Heath (1785-1848) was an illustrator, a book publisher, a currency and stamp printer, and a pioneer in British lithography. His "Heath's Book of Beauty" was published from 1832--when it became an immediate bestseller--to 1847. As seen here, its portraits of aristocratic women provide a window into mid-century Victorian culture, particularly its understanding of beauty, fashion, and class. The Countess of Blessington, editor of this volume, presided over the most celebrated salon for writers and artists of her time; Charles Dickens, amongst many other British and European luminaries, was a frequent guest. We have had a number of similarly designed handsome volumes in bindings signed by "Lloyd" and by "Lloyd, Wallis, & Lloyd," and it is certainly possible that the Edmund Lloyd whom Ramsden notes as doing business (as a publisher and bookseller as well as a binder) at a Harley Street address in 1817 could have been part of this trio. Lloyd, Wallis, & Lloyd seem to have received many commissions that involved putting attractive 19th century bindings on earlier works: of the 38 items by them listed in ABPC since 1975, 29 were volumes printed before 1800, a year that would seem comfortably to predate their first work together (ABPC lists 19th century imprints in Lloyd, Wallis, & Lloyd bindings ranging from 1816-42).

        On the Heat Evolved by Metallic Conductors of Electricity and in the Cells of a Battery During Electrolysis

      Richard and John E. Taylor, London 1841 - FIRST EDITION of the derivation of Joule's Law, one of the fundamental laws of electricity. Joule, "in the paper now under consideration, was the first to announce the definite law that 'when a current of voltaic electricity is propagated along a metallic conductor, the heat evolved in a given time is proportional to the resistance of the conductor multiplied by the square of the electric intensity,' i.e. electric current. In the same paper he showed that the law applies, when proper allowance is made for certain disturbances, to heat produced in electrolytes. The paper also contained the first reference to a 'standard of resistance;' this consisted of a coil of ten feet of copper wire .024 inch in thickness. "These experiments contained the germs of Joule's second great discovery, the equivalence of heat and energy, which he fully developed later. But he had already made it clear that the energy set free in the battery is also proportional to the resistance of the circuit and to the square of the current" (Dictionary of National Biography). NOTE: Joule had originally announced his experimental results in a speech before the Royal Society on December, 17,1840, but the Royal Society did not deem the paper worthy to be printed in their respected Philosophical Transactions; an abstract, instead, was printed in their Proceedings of the Royal Society. In: The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, vol. XIX, no.124, pp.260-277. London: Richard and John E. Taylor, 1841. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter calf, marbled boards. Occasional light foxing, some rubbing to boards. A handsome copy in contemporary binding. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1841 - Aquarell in Grautönen, links unten signiert "H. Rosbach ad nat. del.", r.u. monogrammiert und datiert "H.R.pxt. 19/4 [18]41". Ca. 19,8 x 25,4 cm (Darstellung ohne Schrift). Knickspuren ausserhalb der Darstellung. Detailgenaue Zeichnung des Trierer Arztes und Botanikers Dr. Heinrich Rosbach, dessen zeichnerisches Werk für fast einhundert Jahre unbeachtet blieb. Erst die Ausstellung 1985 in Mettlach entdeckte den sonst vor allem durch seine Flora von Trier (1880) bekannten Künstler. In seiner Jugendzeit war er zeichnerisch durchaus produktiv, wählte jedoch einen Brotberuf. Nach dem Studium in Bonn und seiner Niederlassung als Arzt in Trier (1840) ging der Umfang seiner Zeichentätigkeit stark zurück. Vorliegendes Blatt ist einiges der wenigen, die nicht im Nachlaß der Familie verwahrt wurden und galt als verschollen: "Neben den schon erwähnten Zeichnungen . hat Rosbach die Burg ein weiteres Mal am 19.4.1841 gezeichnet. Dieses Blatt, eine recht große Aquarell-Grisaille mit figürlicher Staffage im Vordergrund (Angler) ist leider verschollen." (Köhl, Peter H., Heinrich Rosbach 1814-1879. Ein Trierer Zeichner der Romantik, S. 44.) Knickspuren ausserhalb der Darstellung.

        Crypt of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem.

      Moon, F.G., London 1841 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.

        THE METHOD OF NATURE. AN ORATION DELIVERED BEFORE THE SOCIETY OF THE ADELPHI, IN WATERVILLE COLLEGE, IN MAINE, AUGUST 11, 1841

      Boston: Samuel G. Simpkins, 1841.. 30pp. Octavo. Original printed medium brown wrappers. Small, shallow discoloration at top edge, faint historical society blindstamp in title and upper wrapper, narrow partial split to spine, soft vertical crease and occasional light marginal foxing; a good copy. First edition of this significant lecture, which, by its injection of the element of ecstasy as "the law and call of nature," marked a turning point in Emerson's thought on the relationship between man and nature. Myerson suggests the edition may have consisted of as few as 500 copies. This copy bears a presentation inscription on the upper wrapper: "Dr Pennington with the regards of C.E. Park[?]" (the donor's name is obscured a bit by the type decoration in the corner of the frame). One could not be blamed for hoping, though without definitive proof, that the recipient might have been African American abolitionist Rev. James W.C. Pennington. A notation in another hand appears above the inscription: "Main Pamp. Vol. 2." MYERSON 11A.1. BAL 5190.

        General Bankrupt Law. An Act to Establish Uniform System of Bankruptcy

      1841 - Rare Printing of 1841 Federal Bankruptcy Law [United States]. [Congress]. General Bankrupt Law. An Act to Establish a Uniform System of Bankruptcy Through the United States [caption title]. [Washington?: 1841]. 16 pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4"). Stab-stitched self-wrappers. Minor edgewear, foxed, a few tiny ink stains, occasional contemporary notes in faint pencil to margins of a few leaves. * Signed in type by President John Tyler. Enacted in February 1800 with a slim majority, the first Federal bankruptcy act aimed to encourage economic risk and supersede the patchwork of debtor laws in force in the different states. Never a popular law, it was routinely attacked as a shield for the financially irresponsible and finally repealed in November 1803. Claiming this would retard economic development, supporters of the defeated bill launched a campaign to restore the law or enact a similar one. Attitudes changed after the Panic of 1837 and the five-year depression that followed. Sponsored by Daniel Webster, the General Bankrupt Law was enacted in 1841. It was repealed two years later. Not found in OCLC, Hollis, or the Library of Congress. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
