[Veinant, Auguste, editor]
[Paris: Printed by Crapelet for Silvestre, 1841]. First printed edition, one of 4 copies on vellum. Woodcut vignette on title, full page woodcut at end. [64], [2] pp. Gothic type. 12mo (6 x 4-1/2 inches; 15 x 11.5 cm.). Hoe Copy, Printed on Vellum. A fine example of vellum printing by Crapelet, being volume 11 in the series, published by Silvestre, titled "Collection de poésies, romans, chroniques etc. publiée d'après d'anciens manuscrits et d'après des éditions des XVe et XVIe siècles." The first printed edition of an anonymous 14th century poem that employs a favorite medieval trope, that of the falsely accused wife. "The uncle of the marquise seeks in vain to seduce her during her husband's absence. Desiring revenge for his repulse, he puts a dwarf in her bed while she sleeps, pretends to find him there, murders him, and accuses the marquise of adultery. The husband on his return condemns her to be burned alive. Fortunately a knight whom she has formerly befriended arrives at this juncture, proclaims her innocence, and challenges whosoever may deny it. The uncle accepts the challenge, is conquered, and admits the falsity of the accusation. The marquis and marquise are reunited, while the knight is rewarded with half the former's lands. The rôle of Nostre Dame is subordinate as she descends from heaven only to comfort the marquise and assure the knight of her innocence" (Lancaster, "The French Tragi-Comedy" p 9). The woodcut vignette on the title, showing the marquise being carted off to her punishment, was based on the miniature in the original manuscript in the Biblioth … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cole, Captain Henry F
1824-1841. 14 hand-coloured signal flags drawn on front paste-down. 136 pages. Ink, in preprinted ledger book pages with decorative borders. With 2 manuscript leaves loosely inserted, one listing preview crew of the Emerald, and another noting sales and rigging in need of repair. Folio (323 x 202 mm). A logbook recording five round-trip commercial voyages undertaken by Captain Henry Cole on four different vessels. The first is aboard the Packet Emerald, identified as No. 273 on the striking hand-coloured Holy Head signal chart drawn in manuscript on the front pastedown, signed "William Cole, Charlestown Massachusetts June 26, 1824", perhaps by the Captain's brother. The voyage departed Boston on June 26, 1824 and arrived twenty days later at Prince's Dock, Liverpool. An entry on July 9 records that Captain Cole "spoke with an English brig 17 days from Ireland bound for Quebec" and on July 14th he is noted as having "spoke with the ship Meteor from Liverpool bound for New York." (A log of the return trip follows, August 26 to September 24, 1824.) The second voyage is aboard the Ship Creole, a round trip from Boston to New Orleans, from November 4, 1824 to January 21, 1825. The third voyage is an eventful round trip on the same route, also aboard the Creole, which began in February 1825. This includes an encounter with the Brig Elizabeth en route to Havana which had her foremast, bowsprit, and main topmast carried away "the evening previous in a heavy squall." On the return trip, near the Tortugas Bank the Creole strikes a coral reef and loses its rudder, and four fishing boa … [Click Below for Full Description]

[WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON]
Washington, D.C.: Gales & Seaton, 1841. "If there is one measure better calculated than another to produce that state of things so much deprecated by all true republicans, by which the rich are daily adding to their hoards and the poor sinking deeper into penury, it is an exclusive metallic currency....""Always the friend of my countrymen, never their flatterer, it becomes my duty to say to them ... that there exists in the land a spirit hostile to their best interests--hostile to liberty itself.... It is union that we want, not of a party for the sake of that party, but a union of the whole country for the sake of the whole country, for the defense of its interests and its honor against foreign aggression, for the defense of those principles for which our ancestors so gloriously contended...."On a cold, wet day, March 4, 1841, President Harrison delivered the longest inaugural address in history. Contracting pneumonia, 31 days later he was the first president to die in office. This same-day National Intelligencer broadside Extraprints his entire 8,460-word address. Harrison presented a detailed statement of the Whig agenda and a repudiation of the populism and policies of Democratic Presidents Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren. Harrison promised to reestablish the Bank of the United States, to issue paper currency, to use his veto power sparingly, and to appoint qualified officers of government in contrast to the spoils system that Jackson heralded. He favors term limits, limits on the powers of the presidency, and devotion to the nation rather than pa … [Click Below for Full Description]

DUMONT D'URVILLE Jules & VINCENDON-DUMOULIN Clément-Adrien
- Gide, Paris 1841 - 1846, In-8, 10 tomes reliés en 5 volumes. - Edizione originale del terzo viaggio di Jules Dumont d'Urville in tutto il mondo, completato due anni prima della sua tragica morte nel primo disastro ferroviario francese. Le corvette L'Astrolabe, comandate da Dumont d'Urville e La Zélée, comandate da Charles Hector Jacquinot, lasciarono Tolone il 7 settembre 1837 verso la costa dell'Antartide, quindi andarono alla deriva in Oceania mentre esploravano le Isole Marchesi , Tahiti, Tonga, Nuova Zelanda o Tasmania. Dumont d'Urville decise quindi di tornare al Polo Sud e approdò per la prima volta alle terre antartiche nel gennaio 1840. Chiamò Terre Adélie, la regione che aveva appena scoperto, come tributo alla moglie Adèle. La relazione di questo viaggio, di un notevole contributo scientifico, ha dato vita a una pubblicazione monumentale iniziata da Jules Dumont d'Urville e proseguita da Charles Hector Jacquinot e Clément-Adrien Vincendon-Dumoulin. Questa collezione, "la più enciclopedica prodotta dai navigatori francesi" (Taillemite), si occupa di zoologia, botanica, antropologia e fisiologia umana, mineralogia e geologia, filologia, fisica e idrografia, nonché dal testo che dall'immagine, poiché 531 tavole e schede sono state fatte per illustrare questo lavoro. L'edizione fu completata nel 1854 e comprendeva 30 volumi. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition originale, illustrée de 9 cartes dépliantes.

"John Gould's magnificent folios are probably the best known of the older bird books and are found in most libraries. There is one work, however, which seems to be very rare, namely the German translation by the brothers J.H.C.F. and J.W. Sturm of Gould's monograph on the Ramphastidae, 1834. This was never finished, only 4 parts in small folio with 36 coloured and 2 plain plates being published in Nuremburg, 1841-47. No title-page was published, but I quote the title given in the prospectus ." (C. Kirke Swann in Journal of Soc. for Bibl. of Nat. Hist Vol. III, 3). In our copy the prospectus is bound at the beginning of the work as well as the 4 printed wrappers to the 4 parts at the end. Sauer in his work 'John Gould The Bird Man' (see pages 45-48) gives an extensive description of this German edition.

Ces planches, grav?es sur acier, offrent plus de 700 portraits, silhouettes ou t?tes d'animaux qui ont permis ? Lavater d'illustrer les th?ories dont on sait l'influence qu'elles ont eu sur des ?crivains comme Balzac. Premi?re ?dition de la traduction d'Henri Bacharach. La premi?re ?dition fran?aise fut publi?e en 1797. Le texte de Lavater est pr?c?d? d'une notice sur sa vie de Fran?ois Fertiault. Pour Lavater, l'homme est triplement vivant d'une vie animale, d'une vie intellectuelle et d'une vie morale, ainsi il est en lui-m?me "le spectacle le plus digne d'?tre vu". Mais son observation ne peut ?tre men?e que sur son corps : "ce qui rend l'homme visible au dehors, c'est son indissoluble alliance avec le corps qu'il habite". Alors, sa "triple vie ne devient un objet d'?tude et de recherches que par cette seule raison qu'elle se r?v?le dans le corps, et que les facult?s humaines sont de nature ? ?tre vues, senties, mat?riellement constat?es". Ces postulats scientifiques constituent une mise en application du sensualisme des Lumi?res, une r?alisation m?dicale, quelque peu excessive, des th?ories philosophiques h?rit?es de Locke.

Joule, James Prescott
London: Richard and John E. Taylor, 1841. 1st Edition. 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.

Six early and rare tracts from the British Mission that show the early outreach and international aspirations of Joseph Smith.

Manchester: P.P Pratt, 1841. 12pp. Crawley 108. Flake/Draper 6597. Mormon Imprints 14. "This tract draws together several converging threads of Mormon thought. Its primary theme is one of Mormonism's oldest - the imminence of the millennium - but with a new component. Using the dream of Nebechadneezer in the second chapter of Daniel as a point of departure, it argues that all the world's governments are soon to be supplanted by a millennial government led by Jesus Christ and administered by His Saints, and idea that Parley Pratt earlier alluded to in his Farewell Song." - Mormon Imprints - 'A Reply to Mr. Thomas Taylor's."

WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON
"If there is one measure better calculated than another to produce that state of things so much deprecated by all true republicans, by which the rich are daily adding to their hoards and the poor sinking deeper into penury, it is an exclusive metallic currency...."On a cold, wet day, March 4, 1841, President Harrison delivered the longest inaugural address in history. Harrison wrote the entire speech himself, though it was edited by his soon-to-be Secretary of State, Daniel Webster. Webster said afterwards that in the process of editing the text, he had "killed seventeen Roman proconsuls." Contracting pneumonia, Harrison became the first president to die in office 31 days after delivering this address. His vice president John Tyler became the new president and served out Harrison's term.In an 8,460-word address, printed here on the front page of the National Intelligencer, Harrison presents a detailed statement of the Whig agenda and a repudiation of the populism and policies of Democratic Presidents Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren. Harrison promises to reestablish the Bank of the United States, to issue paper currency, to use his veto power sparingly, and to appoint qualified officers of government in contrast to the spoils system that Jackson heralded. He favors term limits, limits on the powers of the presidency, and devotion to the nation rather than party. Harrison avoids specifics on the divisive issue of slavery, which in theory he might have opposed, but of which he was in practice a staunch defender.WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON.Newspaper.

Some of the paper sections (signatures) are toned browned. Howes B 1077 aa; Sabin 9721. From Doc South, University of North Carolina: Drawing on experiences from his travels west from the Atlantic coast, through the Dismal Swamp, and to the Roanoke River, Byrd penned four narratives recounting his experiences, describing the area's flora and fauna, and comically depicting backwoods life. Although the texts circulated widely among his friends in manuscript form, only in 1841 were they published by Edwin and Julian C. Ruffin under the title The Westover Manuscripts: Containing the History of the Dividing Line Betwixt Virginia and North Carolina; A Journey to the Land of Eden, A. D. 1733; and A Progress to the Mines. Written from 1728 to 1736, and Now First Published. Whereas his Secret History of the Dividing Line (published much later in 1929) included satirical portraits of various expedition participants along with several sexual exploits, The History of the Dividing Line was a longer, more public, and somewhat tamer document. Briefly touching on Virginia's colonial history, Byrd's recorded journal begins February 1728. Throughout the narrative, he offers astute observations on the region, the animal and … [Click Below for Full Description]

BYRON, Lord.
London: John Murray, 1841. London: John Murray,, 1841. A Romaunt. Large octavo (232 x 151 mm). Contemporary morocco by Hatchards, spine lettered in gilt and richly gilt to compartments, gilt crown and initials to covers within thick gilt ruled border, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. 61 steel engravings and fold-out map, all by W. Finden. Shelf label to front pastedown. Spine and extremities lightly rubbed, minor split at head of rear joint, minor creasing to final pages. A very good copy. First illustrated edition, the copy of Princess Augusta of Cambridge (1822-1916), granddaughter of George III and by marriage Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, with her device to covers, her stamp to title page, and inscribed to her by a friend as a Christmas gift in the year of publication, when she was still 19 years old. After her 1843 marriage to her German cousin at Buckingham Palace, she lived predominantly in Germany (whence this book has recently emerged). Her son, Grand Duke Adolphus Frederick, was reported in 1914 to be the second richest person in Germany after Kaiser Wilhelm. This copy, with its handsome Hatchards binding and Hanoverian provenance, bespeaks the sheer extent of Byron's popularity even to the upper echelons of European society. Childe Harold's Pilgrimage was first published between 1812 and 1818; this first illustrated edition includes a fold out map showing the route of Byron/Childe Harold's adventure from England to Portugal, across the Mediterranean to Malta, through Greece and the Aegean islands to Troy and Constantinople.

MACKAY, Charles.
London: Richard Bentley, 1841. 3 volumes, octavo. Original brown cloth, recased, flat spines lettered in gilt and ruled in blind, boards elaborately decorated in blind, yellow endpapers, edges uncut. Housed in a brown quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Armorial bookplates of Richard Collyer Andrée (1785-1865; lieutenant general in the British Army's Bengal Infantry) to front pastedowns. Spines sunned and a little slanted, ends and corners bumped, cloth scuffed with a few areas of wear and discolouration, one short closed tear to fore edge of volume 2 sig. U2, in all a very good set, the contents bright and clean. With the publisher's advertisements to the front of volumes 1 and 2. Frontispieces with tissue guards (excepting volume 2) and 2 engraved portrait plates to volume 3. First edition. Mackay's important early work of social psychology discusses popular delusions of all types and considers the credulous enthusiasm of mankind for phenomena such as alchemy, witchcraft, relics, the Crusades, urban myths, as well as economic events such as the tulip bubble, the Mississippi Bubble, and the South Sea Bubble. Still in print, Mackay's book has had a profound influence on economics and sociology, with many modern economists referring to his work when analysing the stock market bubbles of our own age. "Charles Mackay's passionate erudition and urbane, unaffected prose style contributed to make him one of the chief figures in the establishment of Victorian journalism as a dignified profession" (ODNB).
