        Astronomische Untersuchungen. I-II

      Königsberg: Gebrüder Bornträger, 1841-42. First edition. &#147;Bessel&#39;s measurements of positions for about 50,000 stars and rigorous methods of observation (and correction of observations) took astronomy to a new level of precision. He was the first to accurately measure the parallax, and hence the distance, of star other than the Sun. The achievements of Bessel were possible only because he first established the real framework of the universe by making accurate measurements of the positions and motions of the nearest stars, making corrections for various measuring errors caused by imperfections in his telescopes and by disturbances in the atmosphere.&#148; (Erik Geregersen, The Universe, p.55). &#148;Modern astronomy of precision is essentially Bessel&#146;s creation. Apart from the large scope of his activity, he introduced such important novelties as the effective use of the heliometer, the correction for personal equation (in 1823), and the systematic investigation of instrumental errors. ... Especial attention should be directed to his Astronomische Untersuchungen (2 vols. 1841-42)&#148; (Brittanica). <br/><br/>& The Astronomische Untersuchungen consists of fourteen separate works by Bessel; some are re-worked editions of earlier works published in the Astronomische Nachrichten, and others appear here for the first time.<br/><br/> & Honeyman 314. 2 vols. 4to: 264 x 214 mm. Pp. vi,(2:contents),313,(1:errata); iv,(2:contents),307,(1:errata). Bound in two, uniform contemporary boards with leather spine label. Faint rubber stamps of the Glasgow Observatory to titles.

      [Washington]. March 11, 1841.. [1]p., plus integral docketing leaf. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Near fine. Vice President John Tyler writes to Secretary of State Daniel Webster regarding an appointment for Mississippi lawyer Augustine L. Dabney to the position of state district attorney. Dabney was a Mississippi lawyer and judge who suggested that the state convention propose Tyler as the candidate for vice president, a move that would lead eventually to Tyler&#39;s election to that office. He writes: "Sir, Should a vacancy occur in the place of District Attorney of Mississippi, let me bespeak your favorable notice to the pretensions of Augustine L. Dabney, Esqr. of Raymond Mississippi. He is a man of fine intelligence and of the soundest morals. He migrated to Mississippi about six years ago from Virginia when I had the pleasure of practicing at the same bar with him, and interchanging the hospitalities of frequent intercourse. I endorse that no man will acquit himself of his duties more faithfully or honorably. I know nothing of the present incumbent, and am not to be understood as asking his removal. If however he has come into office over the head of another and in a spirit of proscription, even handed justice would seem to require his removal." Letters by Tyler as vice president are fairly scarce, given the brief period of time that he held that office (March 4 - April 4, 1841). A nice letter by the Vice President, recommending his supporter for a government position.

      1841. With Illustrations by George Cattermole and Hablot K. Browne. Complete in One Volume. London: Chapman and Hall, 1841. Original blind-stamped olive green cloth. First Separate Edition. After NICHOLAS NICKLEBY was published in monthly serial parts with separate plates in 1838-1839, Dickens decided that his future novels would be published in weekly serial parts that included the illustrations within the text -- loosely connected under the title of MASTER HUMPHREY&#39;S CLOCK. He began this project in April 1840 with his tale THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP; after forty-plus parts he completed that tale, and swung into the beginning of BARNABY RUDGE. In November 1841, after a total of 88 weekly parts, BARNABY RUDGE was complete. During this serialization, MASTER HUMPHREY&#39;S CLOCK (containing both novels) was also published in three volumes, one at a time; after serialization (in December 1841), each novel was also published separately in one volume, as with BARNABY RUDGE here. This is why the pagination of BARNABY RUDGE is odd -- with the text running from page [229] to page 306 (second half of Vol II of MH&#39;sC), then from page [1] to page 420 (Vol III). At the conclusion of BARNABY RUDGE, Dickens abandoned this weekly method of plate-less serialization, and reverted to his prior method with MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT.~This copy is in the binding variant noted by Smith, of olive green fine-diaper cloth blind-stamped with a chain-like design running around the border&#39;s inner surface (as was later used on DOMBEY AND SON). The original endpapers are peach-coated -- one of several colors to be found, without known priority. The volume is in very good condition, with a bit of wear at the extremities of the spine and along the lower edges. The delicate original endpapers are only slightly cracked. Tough to find in better condition. Smith I pp 61-2.

        Wa-Kawn, A Winnebago Chief.

      J.T. Bowen, Philadelphia 1841 - Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Wa-Kawn, first a follower of Tecumseh, later made many accommodations with the white man but died from alcohol consumption. His widow became an anti alcohol activist. Chip to top edge and right corners. Small tears to edges. One piece from our collection of Native American portraits. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20.25" x 14.25".

        Map of the State of New-York with Parts of the Adjacent Country, embracing plans of the cities, and some of the larger villages

      Ithaca, NY: Stone & Clark, 1841. Copper-engraved wall map, with full original colour, "Engraved by S. Stiles & Co., of New York, and D. S. Throop of Ithaca," backed with new linen, trimmed in green cloth, varnished, on contemporary rollers, generally in very good condition. 44½ x 54¼ inches. A very rare map, the third edition of the most important state map of New York of the early nineteenth century. Based upon surveys authorized by the legislature, Burr&#39;s map was essentially the first official state map of New York, a fact that was emphasized by a notice on the first edition of 1830: "Published by [order of ] Simeon de Witt Surveyor General [of the State of New York] Pursuant to an act of the Legislature." A second edition appeared in 1834. The publication rights were subsequently purchased by Stone and Clark, who in 1841 brought out this new updated version of the map. In all editions it was the most accurate and detailed of New York for the period. Among the insets are a large plan of Manhattan (29" x 10¾"), and smaller plans of Syracuse, Hudson, Oswego, Poughkeepsie, Ithaca, Utica, Rochester, Schenectady, Lockport, Auburn, Buffalo, Albany, and Troy, as well as a fine engraving of the Erie Canal at Little Falls. This 1841 edition is not in Phillips&#39; America, nor in Rumsey. See Rumsey, 2269 (for 1834 ed.).

        A Map of the State of New-York and the Surrounding Country&#133;Designating County, Towns, Canals, Rail Roads, Senatorial & Congressional Divisions. Also the Distances Along the Canals, Rail Roads and Principal Mail Routes

      Ithaca, N.Y.: Stone & Clark, 1841. Full period color, 20 x 24¾ inches, folding into gilt-stamped brown leather covers. Some repairs. "Engd. by Rawdon, Clark & Co., Albany & Rawdon, Wright & Co., New York." This is a revised edition of an important map of New York State. It originally appeared in the first edition of Burr&#39;s Atlas of the State of New York (1829), which was authorized by the Legislature of the State, and was just the second atlas of an American state to appear in print. In the following year, a wall map version of the map was published. The official status of the map was emphasized by a notice on the first (1830) edition of the wall map version: "Published by [order of ] Simeon de Witt Surveyor General [of the State of New York] Pursuant to an act of the Legislature." The rights to the Atlas of the State of New York were subsequently purchased by Stone and Clark, who in 1841 brought out this updated pocket map edition of the folio version of the state map. Not in Rumsey nor in Phillips. For the atlas and wall map, see Ristow, pp.104-5.

        View of the City of Boston from Dorchester Heights

      New York: Published by W A Coleman ... for Robt. Havell, Sing Sing N.York, 1841. Aquatint by and after Havell, printed in blue and black by W. Neale, &#39;Coloured by Havell & Spearing&#39;. 15 1/8 x 20 3/4 inches. A fine copy of this &#39;majestic view of Boston&#39; (Deák) by Havell: landscape painter and engraver of Audubon&#39;s masterpiece &#39;Robert Havell gives us a majestic view of Boston composed of highly ordered elements: the open-spaced rusticity of the foreground, which serves as a staging area for viewing the city, is linked to the densely developed metropolis in the background by a curving watercourse ... The city itself is presented most appealingly in the configuration of a terraced pyramid where solid buildings and graceful church spires make their way steadily to the top. Although an air of ... tranquility prevails, the sky-canopied view is crowded to the very edges with signs of industrial and trading activities. Bostonians familiar with the nineteenth-century topography of their city are likely to be able to identify a host of buildings and locations. The most conspicuous architectural landmark is ... the State House, the large, domed building at the pinnacle of the view.&#39; (Deák). No doubt inspired by the example of John James Audubon, his long-time collaborator and friend, Robert Havell had emigrated to America in September 1839. He settled at Tarrytown, beside the Hudson River, and went on to establish himself as both an engraver and landscape painter of note. The painting on which the present print is based was first exhibited by Havell in 1841 at the National Academy of Design. Deák Picturing America 509

        Schreiner&#39;s Sporting Manual. A Complete Treatise on Fishing, Fowling and Hunting -

      Philadelphia: [Stereotyped by S.D. Wyeth], 1841. First edition. 12mo. Wood-engraved frontispiece, and other illustrations. 147 pp. Original brown cloth stamped in gilt and blind. Some rubbing to spine ends and lower joint, minor foxing, chiefly at first and last leaves. Very good plus, bright copy. Bookplate. Cloth folding box. Gee, p. 80; Henderson, p. 218; Phillips, p. 334; Westwood & Satchell, p. 189; Goodspeed, p. 158 . The work is divided into two parts, the first concerning fishing and the second dealing with shooting, hunting, dogs, etc. A scarce book, especially in the original cloth. It is, as Goodspeed points out, "THE FIRST OF OUR SPORTING BOOKS TO TREAT OF THE ANGLER&#39;S NEEDS IN A SYSTEMATIC WAY". He goes on to say, "In orthodox fashion Schreiner begins with an eulogy on sport, but on the unusual ground of its therapeutic value - &#39;It is a well established fact that by a judicious indulgence in the favorite sciences of fishing and gunning, many important diseases may be removed; among which are cited indigestion, nervous derangement, nervous pains, and debility, rheumatism, and spinal affections, and even the indomitable, though very prevalent and alarming complaint of the lungs&#39;".

The editor notes in a short preface to the letter that this letter was written on March 7th, and had lain in the London post office awaiting payment of charges. He encourages readers to make a "subscription" to the post office in Watertown (N.Y.) to ensure no other letters will be delayed.

        Statistical Reports on the Sickness, Mortality, & Invaliding among Her Majesty&#39;s Troops

      London, Printed by W. Clowes and Sons for Her Majesty&#39;s Stationery Office, , 1841. serving in Ceylon; the Tenasserim Provinces; and the Burmese Empire. Prepared from the Records of the Army Medical Department, and War-Office Returns. Folio (327 × 205 mm). Numerous tables, five of them folding. Ex-Royal College of Surgeons&#39; Library, ink-stamp and cancellation to title page only, light browning throughout, slight staining at the inner margin of prelims. and last few leaves, but overall very good in modern drab paper-covered boards, old label mounted on the upper board. First Edition. Uncommon, five copies only on COPAC, three of which appear to be in BL, OCLC lists just one copy in the NY Academy of Medicine. Tulloch&#39;s work here represents the first fruits of the statistical enquiries into mortality that he began whilst serving in Burma. His painstaking gathering and interpretation of such data was to lead to his selection with Sir John McNeill to inquire into the Commissariat in the Crimea, resulting in controversial criticism of military arrangements and confrontation with Lord Lucan at a specially convened Board; "The Board&#39;s report rejected the findings of McNeill and Tulloch, shifting responsibility for supply difficulties from the Crimea to civilian departments in Whitehall. In 1857 Tulloch published a detailed justification of his actions in The Crimean Commission and the Chelsea Board, which drew further criticism from [the Commissary-General] but secured parliamentary approval; he was appointed KCB in April 1857." This copy inscribed, in a secretarial hand, "Presented to the Library of The Royal College of Surgeons by Sir James M&#39;Grigor". M&#39;Grigor, Wellington&#39;s Chief of Medical Staff in the Peninsula and a radical innovator of front-line medical practice, rose to become Director-General of the Army Medical Department and instigated numerous key reforms to aid in the medical and social well-being of the British Army, one of which was the collection and collation of such medical reports from all military stations.
