The first three volumes of the History of Europe from the Commencement of the French Revolution by Archibald Alison. Bound in quarter leather and marbled paper-covered boards, with gilt lettering and decoration to the spine. Volumes I to III of X. From the 'Collection of Ancient and Modern British Authors', Volume CCCXXXI to CCCXXXIII. Of Alison's History of Europe, the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography tells us, his work offered the first survey of the revolution in English, and several editions won huge sales on both sides of the Atlantic. Sir Archibald Alison, 1st Baronet, 1792 1867, was a British lawyer, who held several prominent legal appointments, an historian and baronet. After studying under a private tutor, and at the University of Edinburgh, he was, in 1814, called to the Bar, at which he ultimately attained some distinction, becoming in 1834 Sheriff of Lanarkshire. In 1853, he received a Honorary Doctorate of Civil Law by the University of Oxford. When travelling in France in 1814 he conceived the idea of his History of Europe. The work was popular and translated into many languages, including Arabic and Hindostee. Alison was also the author of a life of Marlborough, and of two standard works on the criminal law of Scotland. He was elected Lord Rector successively of Marischal College, Aberdeen, and of the University of Glasgow. In 1852 he was created a baronet, during Lord Derby's administration. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including some mild bumping and rubbing.

Thomas Heywood, d. 1641, was a prominent English playwright, actor, and author whose peak period of activity falls between late Elizabethan and early Jacobean theatre, whose literary career is described as astonishing not only for its length (nearly fifty years), but for the sheer range of Heywood's output, covering nearly all the genres available to him.

He described this in papers to the Royal Society who awarded him the Isis gold medal in 1840... The cell, made from plates of zinc, together with silver coated with platinum and an electrolyte of sulphuric acid, was found to be simple to operate, requiring little attention, and economical in use. It produced a steady current and, though less powerful than the cell developed by William R. Grove (1811–1896), it became very popular commercially for the production of electrotypes."—(ODNB).

      Zürich und Winterthur, Literarisches Comptoir, 1841-1843.. . Erste Ausgabe der zweiten selbständigen Buchveröffentlichung des neben Freiligrath und Weerth "bedeutendsten politischen Dichters des 19. Jahrhunderts" (NDB). Die leidenschaftlichen und polemischen Gedichte machten den Verfasser über Nacht berühmt; kaum ein anderer Versband der Zeit ist mit solcher Begeisterung begrüßt und verbreitet worden wie dieser. Mit ihren Forderungen nach Freiheit und Einheit trafen die Verse genau die Stimmung der jungen Generation. Zornige Empörung gegen die Tyrannei der fürstlichen Despoten lodert durch die Seiten und begeisterte die Jugend ebenso wie die Aufrufe zum Sturz der feudalen und kirchlichen Macht. Für das Erscheinen des ersten Bandes gründete Julius Fröbel mit Hilfe des Burschenschaftlers Follen eigens das "Literarische Comptoir". Durch dieses Buch wurde der Verlag in ganz Deutschland bekannt und der Zufluchtsort für zensurbedrohte Autoren.

        Colin Clink. In three volumes

      London - Richard Bentley, 1841. London - Richard Bentley, 1841 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A very scarce first edition of this early Victorian novel, illustrated by Leech and Cruikshank. First Edition. Complete in three volumes. Featuring 14 plates, including a frontispiece to each volume. With half titles to each volume. With the pictorial bookplates of Reuben Jay Flick to the front pastedowns. With bookbinder's stamps for Morrell, London, to the front free endpapers. Charles Hooton (18101847), novelist and journalist, was probably born on 10 May 1810. According to later applications submitted to the Royal Literary Fund, Hooton studied at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. In 1836, while editing a newspaper in Leeds, Hooton published The Adventures of Bilberry Thurland. In 1837 he moved to London and published in Bentley's Miscellany a novel called Colin Clink (republished 1841). As the sub-editor of the True Sun, Hooton wrote a series of articles on the subject of political economy. In 1840 he edited another short-lived paper, The Woolsack, in which he attacked the abuses of the court of chancery. Following the collapse of The Woolsack, Hooton left for Texas, where for nine months he attempted to live off the land, farming, hunting, and fishing. He afterwards undertook newspaper work in New Orleans, New York, and Montreal, but his failing health prompted him to return to England. He wrote a series of ballads for the New Monthly Magazine illustrative of American life and literature, and a novel called Launcelot Wedge, which was running in Ainsworth's Magazine at the time of his death (republished 1849). Hooton's account of his experiences in the United States and Canada was published posthumously as St Louis' Isle, or, Texiana (1847). With his wife, Emily (d. after 1847), he had a child; the Royal Literary Fund archive records that his wife left him after he had attempted to kill her and their child. He died on 16 February 1847 from an overdose of morphine at his father's residence in Nottingham, to which he had been moved having been certified insane while in Texas. According to a late twentieth-century assessment of his writing, his sub-Dickensian fiction, though quirky, has its powerfully atmospheric and comic moments (Sutherland, 305). DNB. Condition: In full calf bindings. Externally, generally smart, some rubbing to the extremities and sunning to the spines. Front joint of volume I very slightly strained. Internally, firmly bound.

        Old Saint Paul's:

      London - Hugh Cunningham, 1841. London - Hugh Cunningham, 1841 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Old St. Paul's: A Tale of the Plague and the Fireis a novel by William Harrison Ainsworth first serially published in 1841. It is a historical romance that describes the events of the Great Plague of London and the Great Fire of London. With twentylovely engraved illustrations by John Franklin. First edition thus. In three volumes complete. William Harrison Ainsworth (1805 - 1882) was an English historical novelist. Ainsworth briefly tried the publishing business, but soon gave it up and devoted himself to journalism and literature. His first success as a writer came with Rookwood in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of thirty-nine novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881. Old St. Paul's was not illustrated by George Cruikshank, the illustrator of many of Ainsworth's works, and this caused problems between the two. It is uncertain why Ainsworth did not choose Cruikshank, and Cruikshank criticised Ainsworth in a pamphlet titled Artist and Author (1872). In the work, Cruikshank claims that he originated many of Ainsworth's works along with being the one that came up with the idea for Old St. Paul's and that Ainsworth stole the idea. The original edition was not illustrated, but John Franklin made 20 illustrations for the three volume edition. Cruikshank was originally offered the position of illustrator before Franklin, but he turned it down due to too many prior commitments. Condition: In half morocco bindings with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, generally smart but with slight wear to extremities and the odd mark to boards. Front joint starting to one volume with backstrip liftingslightly. Two hinges strained. Internally, firmly bound but with one plate loose to volume one, all plates are present.

        History of Scotland. In nine volumes

      43 - Edinburgh - William Tait, 1841. 43 - Edinburgh - William Tait, 1841 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of Tytler's pioneering History, which helped set the standard for objective historical research. Second Edition. Complete in nine volumes. Covers the history of Scotland from 1149 - 1603. With the bookplates of Reginald Thornton, Dorchester, to the front pastedowns. Patrick Fraser Tytler (17911849) was a Scottishhistorian. Up to about the time of his first marriage, Tytler was unsure whether to devote himself to literature or history. A turning point for Tytler had come in 1823, while he was staying at Abbotsford as a guest of Walter Scott, who proposed to him that he should write a new history of Scotland. There had been no major one since William Robertson's of 1759. A vast amount of lost information was becoming available again from the herculean labours of Thomas Thomson (17681852), depute clerk register and another leading light of the Bannatyne Club, who had spent twenty years reducing to order the chaotic public records of Scotland. It was now clear that they would permit the entire history of the country to be rewritten, and Scott was anxious for a man energetic, talented, and youthful enough to take on the job. For Tytler it proved indeed to be his life's work. In the way he executed Scott's commission, Tytler helped bring about something of a revolution in British historical method. He did not yet aspire to raise his discipline to fully scientific status, in the manner of the German school founded by Leopold von Ranke later in the century. But he insisted on the primacy of personal research in original sources, and the superiority of these to published memoirs, partisan manifestos, popular memories, and the programmatic morality of the author as the material or the organizing principle of historiography. Utterly dedicated to his task, Tytler set future historians a high example of objectivity in his painstaking scrutiny and strict evaluation of relevant documents. If in writing them up he was understandably inclined to show off the fruits of his exertions, and include a good deal of repetitive or tenuously related citation, he has at least by his unwavering reliability saved many successors from enduring again the tedium to which he so willingly submitted himself.

        The History of England

      London - T. Cadell, 1841. London - T. Cadell, 1841 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of Smollett's history of England, spanning from the reign of William and Mary in 1689 to the death of George II in 1760. The works were originally designed as a continuation of the work of David Hume, an eminent historian of the eighteenth century. Hume's works ended with the deposition of the Catholic James II in favour of his Protestant sister Mary, and her Dutch husband William of Orange. 'In fourteen months from 1755 to 1757 Smollett wrote his four-volume Complete History of England, having instructed his servant to deny me to all those with whom I had no express business (Letters, 46). Revised in 1758, the Complete History was offered for sale in 100 sixpenny weekly pamphlets, and by 28 September 1758 he noted with satisfaction that weekly sales exceeded 10,000 copies (ibid. , 73), realizing 500 for the author. Hume wrote to Andrew Millar, bookseller, of this extraordinary run upon Dr. Smollett (Hume, Letters, 1. 273), and he jocularly reproved William Robertson for replacing him near the historical summit of Parnassus, immediately under Dr. Smollett (ibid. , 1. 302). The success of Smollett's History may be explained by reference to his statement of intent in his prefatory Plan: his approach is factual, not theoretical or philosophical; he will eschew conjecture and national, religious, and political partiality; he will consult only the most legitimate of sources; and his style will make his material accessible. Inevitably there were dissonant voices, and Smollett was accused of being Jacobite and papist, most notably by Thomas Comber. Whig policy towards Scotland, and what he perceived as the corruption of Walpole's administration, had weakened his enthusiasm for the party to which his family was traditionally loyal. Surprised to hear of Glaswegian approval, he predicted the last volume will be severely censured by the west country whigs of Scotland, but he reiterated I have, as far as in me lay, adhered to Truth without espousing any faction (Letters, 65). In 1758 he took charge of the production of a Universal History and contributed the sections on France, Italy, and Germany. ' DNBWith frontispiece to volume I. Complete in four volumes.

      Lausanne, Ducloux, 1841.. (21 x 13,5 cm). (4) X, 363 (richtig 362) (1) S. Mit 23 Abbildungen, 1 gefalteten gestochenen Karte und 8 (1 gefalteten) lithographierten Tafeln. Pappband der Zeit.. Erste Ausgabe. - Charpentier (1786-1855), Professor für Geologie in Lausanne, verbesserte als Direktor der bedeutenden Schweizer Salzminen deutlich deren Effektivität. Zusammen mit Agassiz untersuchte er die Gletscher der Alpen und kam zu dem Ergebnis, dass die Moränen und erratischen Blöcke im Schweizer Flachland durch große Massen von Gletschereis dorthin gebracht worden waren. Trotz einiger kleiner Fehler wurden seine und Agassiz' Beobachtungen zum Ausgangspunkt der modernen Geologie der Eiszeiten. "The scrupulous care with which he weighed the evidence and described the phenomenon of erratic blocks and the function of glaciers in transporting them makes this book a classic" (DSB). - Stellenweise etwas stockfleckig, sonst wohlerhalten. - DSB 3, 211; Poggendorff I, 423

Choate" to head of front wrapper and title page, interior otherwise clean. * Second and final edition. Davis was the well-known owner of a St. Louis newspaper that published several highly critical columns about Darnes, an important local politician. Enraged, Darnes attacked Davis on the street with an iron rod, striking him in the head. Rushed to a hospital, Davis was operated on, but died a few days later. Darnes was indicted. The trial lasted two weeks and engaged some of the best lawyers and medical experts in the area. The case turned on whether Davis died from the blow or his medical treatment. Both sides offered a strong case. In the end Darnes was convicted of fourth-degree manslaughter and fined [1799-1859], the great Massachusetts lawyer and statesman. He was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1831-34, U.S. Senator from 1841-45 and Attorney General of Massachusetts from 1853-54. This case not in McDade.

        Militair-Strafgesetzbuch für das Königreich Hannover.

      Hannover, Helwing, 1841. - 107 S., prächtiger Lederband der Zeit (von Johannes Selenka?), Rücken und Decken mit reicher Vergoldung, Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung, dreiseitiger Goldschnitt und farbige Vorsätze (Blumen auf silbernem Grund), Druck auf festem Papier (Gelenke berieben und mit kl. Einriß), 20,5 x 12,5 cm. Erste Ausgabe. Seltenes Militärstrafrecht in einem dekorativen Einband aus der Bibliothek von Ernst August von Hannover; mit dessen Wappenstempel auf dem Titelblatt verso. Die Reform des Strafensystems wurde Anfang des 19. Jahrhundert als Mittel und als Voraussetzung weiterer Militärreformen, wie der allgemeinen Wehrpflicht, angesehen. Dennoch konnte man sich 1841 in Hannover noch nicht entschließen, im neuen Militärstrafgesetzbuch ganz auf entwürdigende körperliche Strafen zu verzichten. (Vergl. dazu ausführlich: Lutz u.a. (Hrsg.): Reform, Reorganisation, Transformation, München, 2010, S. 143 f.). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
