        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 Never a popular law, it was routinely attacked as a shield for the financially irresponsible and finally repealed in November 1803.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 It was repealed two years later.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]

        The Pic nic papers

      By various hands. Edited by Charles Dickens, Esq. Author of ‘[so volume one; the others have, correctly, double inverted commas] The Pickwick Papers,” “Nicholas Nickleby,” &c. With Illustrations by George Cruikshank, Phiz, &c. In three volumes. London: Henry Colburn, Publisher, Great Marlborough Street, 1841. 3 Vols., lge.12mo; half-titles not called for; frontispiece with tissue guard, and three, plates in volumes one and two, frontispiece and five plates in volume three; the first leaf of the final gathering in volume two, the title-page and second leaf of advertisements in volume three, are single insets; pp.[viii]+323+[i (blank)]; [iv]+298; [ii]+378+[iv (advertisements]; publisher’s inserted catalogue, 8pp., dated May, 1841, at end of volume two; vertically fine-ribbed bright grass-green cloth, ruled blind on sides and spine, elaborately blocked blind on sides, lettered gilt on spine (with title, volume number, ‘EDITED / BY / BOZ’ and ‘LONDON / COLBURN’); top- and fore- edges uncut; end-papers coated pale yellow. Small, and virtually invisible, restorations to cloth at head of one volume and tail of another; insignificant fading to cloth of spines; tissues foxed, with offsetting onto frontispieces; half a dozen fox-spots on edges of volume two; otherwise, and in effect, a very fine, crisp, copy. Scarce, especially thus. The second state of text, p.[iii], l.3 of text having the corrected reading, ‘young publisher’ instead of ‘publisher young’ as in the first state; the misprint on the title-page to volume one appears to be unrecorded. The prelims. to volume one are here apparently a cancel, bearing on the verso of the title-page the imprint of Palmer (who also printed volume two), the rest of the volume being printed by Cox. Eckel is in error in suggesting that the whole of volume one was reprinted by Palmer. Two of the plates are by George Cruikshank, six by Phiz, and six by R.J. Hamerton. Literary contributions are by Dickens, Agnes Strickland, Leitch Ritchie, Allan Cunningham, W.H. Maxwell, Thomas Moore, William Harrison Ainsworth, Horace Smith, etc. Among the anonymous pieces is a short novel concerned with necromancy. Sadleir, 703, not noticing the state; not in Wolff or Locke; Cohn, 236; Gimbel, B109. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        Beitrag zur Untersuchung des äusseren Gehörganges. Mitgetheilt vom Hofmed. Dr. Hoffmann in Burg Steinfurt (pp.10-14, 1 lith. Taf. mit 5 Abb.)

      . Wschr. ges. Heilk., 1841/ 1. - Berlin, August Hirschwald, den 2ten Januar 1841, 8°, 16 pp., 1 lith. Taf., Brosch.. 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.

        CHILDE HAROLD&#39;S PILGRIMAGE

      London: John Murray, 1841. n. Hardcover. Birth of the Byronic Hero, Beautifully Clothed in Morocco and with Exquisite Fore-Edge Vignettes from the Narrative. 235 x 146 mm (9 1/4 x 5 3/4"). 2 p.l. (including the frontispiece), xvi, 320 pp. VERY STRIKING CHESTNUT-BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT AND INLAID, BY FAZAKERLEY (stamp-signed on turn-in at front), front cover with an elaborate frame of inlaid leaves and flowers in green, orange, and yellow morocco enclosing four lines of large gilt titling (rear cover with a gilt oval containing the same colored morocco inlays around the gilt initials "E. M. W."), wide turn-ins with gilt decoration and inlaid green leaves, cream-colored moiré silk endleaves, EDGES GILT AND ELABORATELY GAUFFERED, THE FORE EDGE WITH THREE FINE VIGNETTES SHOWING SCENES FROM THE POEM. With 62 engravings after William Finden, including a frontispiece, an added engraved title page, a folding map (featuring a frame of scenic roundels) showing the course of Harold&#39;s travels, and 59 engraved vignettes used as headpieces and tailpieces. Very faint browning at the edges of leaves because of slightly inferior paper stock, occasional pale mottled foxing, otherwise very fine, THE SUPERB BINDING UNWORN AND UNUSUALLY BRIGHT AND CLEAN. This is a glorious binding with an exquisitely painted fore edge, adorning Byron&#39;s lengthy narrative poem recounting the travels of a young man in search of enlightenment. In the course of the work&#39;s four parts, the title character journeys through the Iberian penninsula, the Baltics, Albania, Greece, Belgium, Italy, and elsewhere, and, as a result, the Byronic hero--struggling with morality, cynicism, and a distrust of authority--is born. When the first two cantos of Byron&#39;s "Childe Harold" were published in 1812, the poet became an overnight sensation. As Day observes, "No previous poem in English literature enjoyed such immediate triumph." While the first part of the poem is a fine example of what Day terms Byron&#39;s "exuberant Romanticism," the third and fourth cantos, published in 1816 and 1818, respectively, demonstrate the "Romantic pessimism" or "Weltschmerz" ("World Grief"), at which Byron excelled. Not usually given to overstatement, Day writes of the third canto: "hardly any other work in literature possesses the same titanic power and grand flourish." Binder Thomas Fazakerley is especially well known for delicate paintings on glittering gold fore edges, visible, not when the volume is fanned open, but rather when it is closed--and that is certainly a feature notably on display here. The vignettes are set off by a striking physical context: the fancifully designed and artfully crafted morocco is a visual delight, and the unpainted portions of the golden book block edges are memorable, as the gauffered embellishments in high relief represent sculpting of this sort at least as pronounced as we have ever seen. The three scenic fore-edge vignettes are painted versions of locales in the text. They are made with deft strokes of an extremely fine brush that have created landscapes with surprising detail in pleasing colors that do not disappoint even under magnification. The center (and by far the largest) one shows Chillon in an expansive and exhilarating view with pleasure-seeking figures in the foreground and imposing Alpine peaks on the other side of Lake Geneva; the bottom depicts a tranquil scene on the banks of Lake Trasimeno near Perugia; the top scene, showing a glorious sunset, appears to be Rome, with St. Peter&#39;s Cathedral in the middle ground. No other binder is associated with this kind of unusually diverting decorative feature. While not rare beyond description, the type of volume offered here is uncommonly seen for sale: from 1975 to 2009, for example, ABPC lists just three bindings with multiple fore-edge vignettes at auction.

        The Pathology of Drunkeness, or the Effects of Alcoholic Drinks with Drawings of the Drunkard's Stomach

      Albany, 1841. First Edition. Orig. half lea., marbled bds., and paper label. The binding is broken; label is chipped; tide marks encroaching from corners of the plates. sm. folio Four color lithographic plates of pathological conditions. An original and unusual medical title that is the earliest illustrated book published in America devoted to the pathological effects of alcoholism.The book is printed in double columns of text and in large format. Sewall had received his medical degree at Harvard and then studied with Rush for a time in Pennsylvania (no doubt because of the interest of the latter in the deleterious effects of alcohol). The essay offered here has a curious bibliographic origin. It appeared in the same year in volume 1, number 1 of Edward Delevan's temperance journal 'The Enquirer' published in Albany, NY (also offered here). Sewall's essay is the last six pages of the journal. The journal could be had both with or without illustrations (according to the statements printed on the wrapper). The illustrations consisted of four full page color lithographs that illustrate the pathology of the stomach and the effect of alcohol on it. The second plate carries a heading The Enquirer Extra below which is printed the postage rate for mailing a single sheet periodical. It also carries a legend identifying the lithographer with the statement: Chromolithographs by J H Hall Albany NY. No other plate has the legend or statement. The implication is that the illustrations were to be ordered as an extra expenditure though they are here definitely bound (stitched) as issued in the original green journal wrappers. The pamphlet issue of Sewall's essay (offered here) is published in the same generous small folio format as the journal. The printer for it and the journal is the same, C Van Benthuysen of Albany. The pamphlet issue has the same text as the journal. But it has been entirely re-set, including the text block Explanation of the Plates printed on the verso of the introduction by Delavan. The plates are, however, not present in the pamphlet. One can understand the proselytizer Delavan wanting to get the word out by quickly issuing a separate 'offprint' of the Sewall. The color plates, however, were a relatively expensive give away and were already limited in circulation by having to be ordered in addition to the periodical purchase. So there could have been few copies issued with the plates. OCLC confirms this by the fact that no copies of the journal or the pamphlet are located (there is a copy of the pamphlet with the illustrations at NLM and Yale). The illustrations are 'provincial' in their execution. They reveal none of the sophistication and technical accomplishment of the established commercial lithographers in Boston, Philadelphia or New York. Hall, the lithographer, was a capable practitioner; his output, however, appears to have been limited and of local interest (the Albany Inst. for History and Art has one Hall topographical lithograph of a plain building in Albany). This exceptional American and early work of the pathology of alcoholism is of uncommon interest in medicine and printing. Kelly & Burrage, 1096.

        The Old English Gentleman, or, The Fields and the Woods

      London: Henry Colburn, 1841 - Sadleir, who had a copy in boards, writes: "I remember an old bookseller in Edinburgh (who had been at one time employed by W.T.

        Los hijos de Bolivar. el Illampu, [with] En medio del combate, en que crecia por grados el ardimiento y bizarría del egercito Boliviano

      - Paris. Mandado litografiar por un Boliviano, Imp. Lemercier. c.335 mm x 493 mm. Los hijos de Bolivar en presencia de los dos gigantes del nuevo mundo, el Illampu, viendo desplegado en el cielo su pabellon briunfante atacaron con tal ímpetu, que su caballería en pocos instantes sobrepasó la línea de los enemigos hasta la retaguardia, arrollando al mismo tiempo la derecha de estos con su izquierda. [with] En medio del combate, en que crecia por grados el ardimiento y bizarría del egercito Boliviano cayo muerto, sobre el campo de batalla, el Generalisimo D. Agustin Gamarra, viniendo a encontrar su sepulcro en el suelo mismo, que acababa de ultrajar invadiéndolo tan injusta y temerariamente. Cuando el Mariscal Andrés Santa Cruz fue derrotado por las fuerzas peruanas marchó al exilio. En esas horas su vencedor, el presidente del Perú, Agustín Gamarra, decidió ir por más e invadió Bolivia. Pero el 18 de noviembre de 1841 sus hombres se enfrentaron al ejército local comandado por José Ballivián, ya ungido sucesor de Santa Cruz y proclamado presidente de la república. La batalla aconteció en la localidad de Viacha, provincia de Ingavi, y lleva para la historia el nombre de ésta última. Las tropas bolivianas portaban un nuevo fusil, bautizado &#147;hannoveriano&#148;, de muy buen calibre y alta efectividad. Esto hizo la diferencia y se cuenta que en el propio campo de operaciones supo exclamar Gamarra: &#147;He estado en muchas refriegas desde la Guerra de la Independencia y nunca he presenciado un fuego tan graneado&#148;. Lo cierto es que poco después, el jefe peruano caía abatido por uno de estos proyectiles y extendida la mala nueva, su ejército no pudo sobreponerse y fue derrotado. La batalla de Ingavi fue la gran victoria del ejercito Boliviano sobre las tropas peruanas, consolidando la independencia de aquel país y su fortalecimiento republicano.

        Camellia Hockerii

      Paris 1841 - Abbé Laurent (Lorenzo) Berlese (1784-1863) was born in Campo Molino near Treviso, in northern Italy. He moved to Paris as a chaplain and by 1817, through his own funding, began cultivating camellias. Interest in camellias peaked in the middle part of the nineteenth century, when large numbers of seedlings obtained from crossing variants of camellia Japonica were raised and named, mostly by the Verschaffelt family at Ghent in Belgium, and continuing with Berlese in Paris until he assembled a collection of around 300 species. In 1837, with his large collection of camellias amassed, many of them hybrid species, Berlese realized the importance of establishing a classification system and that a detailed monograph was required. The &#147;Iconographie du genre Camellia ou Description et Figures des Camellia les Plus Beaux et les Plus Rares&#148; was published in three volumes in Paris between 1841 and 1843, from the drawings made by J.J. Jung of the camellias in Berlese&#146;s greenhouses. The arrangement of the text is unusual as the scientific and practical monograph is printed on the lower half of the recto of each text leaf with the description of the facing plate on the upper half and with the versos of the text leaves blank. Berlese was also a founding member and Vice President of the Société Royale d'Horticulture de Paris and. He lived for nearly 40 years in the French capital in contact with the highest scientific, artistic and political officials of his time. Each original stipple engraving is expertly colored and are fine examples of nineteenth century botanical art. This engraving, Camellia Hockerii, 13.25" x 10", is in very good condition with a foxing mark in the margin, slight discoloration and evidence of verso page text. This beautiful flower in shades of pink is well colored and detailed. The leaves, in rich shades of green, are also detailed and highlighted for a realistic and dynamic look. Arader Galleries is happy to reduce the price of this engraving by 50% if client uses our excellent framing services.

        Henry Clay writes a letter mentioning the National Bank, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison

      Washn, July 4, 1841 Third Person Autograph Letter Signed "H. Clay" within the text. Clay wrote in the third person: "H. Clays respects to Miss Maury, with his thanks for the testimony she has communicated to him in respect to Mr. Madison's opinions as to a Nat. bank. What caught her eye, as to Mr. River's statement relative to them, regarded Mr. Jefferson & not Mr. Madison." Letter folds, slight staining, and mounting remnants on the verso do not affect legibility in any way. Very good condition, with clear, dark writing. The first Bank of the United States had been chartered with the strong support of the Federalist party, over the vocal objections of Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and other members of the Republican party. It had expired in 1811, when the Republican-dominated Congress refused to renew its charter. On January 8, 1816, a bill was introduced for a Second National bank; it was to be chartered for twenty years, with its main branch in Philadelphia. The Bank would operate
