        A Descriptive Vocabulary of The Language in Common Use amongst the Aborigines of Western Australia

      London: Wm. S. Orr, 1842. Octavo; crude repair to title-page, some wear to extremities, else a good mostly unopened copy in original green cloth, with 4-pp. advertisements bound in. Moore, a lawyer, landed proprietor and diarist, arrived at the Swan River Settlement on the brig Cleopatra in 1830; over the following decades he became a large land-holder at his property Millendon and was appointed advocate-general. Less than a month after arriving in the settlement, Moore accompanied the colonial secretary on a search-party to find Aborigines implicated in a robbery. From this period on he would express sympathetic concern for the local tribes, and made a sustained effort to learn their language and understand their stories. This work is based on the preliminary studies of the explorer George Grey. Moore greatly expanded and enhanced the material, producing a genuinely descriptive vocabulary of the language in common use amongst the Aborigines of Western Australia. As with all good works of this sort, Moore's work makes fascinating reading, as it includes detailed observations regarding the habits, manners and customs of the natives and the natural history of the country. Throughout, Moore's work gives a real insight into the lives of the settlers themselves; thus 'Janjin… the native pear tree. It bears a thing which looks provokingly like a good fruit'.

        A Journey in the Northern Island of New Zealand

      Hobart Town: George Rolwegan, 1842. Duodecimo, 206 pp. including appendices; a little modest foxing yet a very good uncut copy in attractive recent green polished half calf. Dedicated to Lady Franklin. Scarce Hobart printed account of New Zealand travels. This copy has an interesting presentation inscription to the publisher's wife 'Mrs. Rolwegan, with the author's kind regards.' Hocken recommends the quality of Wade's descriptive account while the NZNB applauds it as 'a work of present day rarity and textual value'. Reverend Wade came to New Zealand with William Colenso as a superintendent of the press. He served for six years as a missionary in New Zealand before being installed as the minister of Harrington Street Chapel in Hobart. While serving in Hobart Wade evidently became acquainted with the Franklins, as his account is dedicated, with permission, to Lady Franklin (who also personally subscribed for 6 copies). The 'Appendix gives list of New Zealand plants furnished by Allan Cunningham, with excellent list of their native names' (Hocken).

        The Bank, looking towards the Mansion House

      T. Boys, [London 1842 - A very fine image from Boys' 'London As It Is': a work 'of considerable importance' (Abbey) Abbey writes of the work London As It Is from which this beautiful image comes: apart "from the beauty of its plates, it records London at a period when good pictorial records were few. The London of the 1840's is probably more difficult to reconstruct than at any other period in the nineteenth century" (Abbey Life 239). High production costs and changing fashion caused aquatint to die out, photography was still in an experimental stage, and chromolithography did not appear until 1850. Boys' work was issued with the plates hand-coloured mounted in imitation of watercolours, with no imprint, or as here, with the plates tinted and hand-coloured, including Boys' name at the foot. Boys garnered enormous prestige from this work and from his earlier, Picturesque Views in Paris, Ghent. (1839). The "accuracy of his portraits of buildings and his skill in composition have seldom been bettered" (Mallalieu Dictionary of British Watercolour Artists p.38). Cf. Abbey Scenery 239. Hand-coloured lithograph by Thomas Shotter Boys, printed by Charles Hullmandel.

John Ferneley, with the encouragement of the Duke of Rutland studied under Benjamin Marshall for three years before travelling and painting in England and Ireland.

        Czarina, The

      1842. first edition. Borscht and CaviarIn the Court of Catherine IHOFLAND, Mrs. [Barbara]. The Czarina; An Historical Romance of the Court of Russia. By Mrs. Hofland…In Three Volumes. London: Henry Colburn, 1842. First edition. Three twelvemo volumes (7 5/16 x 4 5/8 inches; 186 x 118 mm.). [2], 302; [2], 317, [1, blank]; [2], 325, [1, blank] pp. Bound without half-titles (possibly as issued?).Contemporary half plum calf, decoratively ruled in blind, over marbled boards. Spines decoratively ruled and numbered in gilt and ruled in blind with four raised bands and brown morocco gilt lettering labels, edges sprinkled red. Spines faded to brown, corners lightly rubbed, spine labels a tiny bit chipped. Some light foxing and browning. Volume I with a few ink smudges on the verso of the title and on the first page of text and a printing flaw (slight ink smear to a few words) on pp. 258 and 259. A very good copy. One of the last novels by Hofland, an extremely prolific - and moralistic - writer."The patient reader who has followed Mary [our princess] through her many trials, and, we trust, rejoiced in the development of her virtues as a daughter and sister, will not doubt that she became an exemplary as a wife, a mother, and a mistress " (p. 318).Mrs. Barbara Hofland (1770-1844) “was the daughter of Robert Wreaks, a Sheffield manufacturer, who died when she was an infant. She was brought up by an aunt and in 1796 married T. Bradshawe Hoole, a merchant, by whom she had a son. Hoole’s death from consumption two years later left her wealthy but the money was subsequently lost through a bad investment, and she turned to writing. A volume of Poems (1805) attracted 2,000 subscribers, mainly out of sympathy. She opened a boarding school at Harrogate on the proceeds, and when this failed she began to write fiction. The History of a Clergyman’s Widow (1812) sold 17,000 copies in various editions. In 1808 she married the landscape painter Thomas Cristopher Hofland (1777-1843). The precariousness of an artist’s life together with Hofland’s natural improvidence and subsequent illness meant that she had to work even harder at her fiction. By 1824 she had produced upwards of twenty titles, the most successful of which, and probably her best, was The Son of a Genius [1812], which drew on her experience of the artistic temperament and also on the emotional legacy of her son’s death from consumption. She followed it with The Daughter of a Genius (1823). She was a poplar as well as prolific writer although her fiction, which extended to nearly seventy works, was remorselessly didactic in tone. Towards the end of her career she turned out conventional Victorian three-deckers, including The Czarina (1842), The King’s Son (1843), The Unloved One (1844), and Daniel Dennison (1846). She was also an energetic journalist, having begun as early as 1795 with ‘Characteristics of Some Leading Inhabitants of Sheffield’, which she published in the Sheffield Courant. She expanded this vein later by contributing gossipy letters about London literary life to provincial newspapers. Her children’s books include both history and travel and, despite their moralizing, are attractive and readable. Hofland was a friend of Mary Russell Mitford” (The Oxford Companion to British Women Writers).“[Mrs. Hofland’s] work for children includes imaginative textbooks (she centres both histories and travels on invented young people). Some simplified moral judgements apart, it is intelligent and readable. Depth and variety is added in adult works like Iwanowa, or The Maid of Moscow, 1813 (Richardsonian letters; clash of armies and cultures), Katherine, 1828 (delicate psychological analysis of misunderstandings in love), The Captives in India, 1834 (effective use of Eliza Fay), and The King’s Son, 1843 (fictional vindication of Richard III)” (The Feminist Companion to Literature in English).Block, pp. 109-110. CBEL III, 734. CBEL (3) IV, 934. Not in Sadleir or in Wolff, who had only two of her works—The Captives in India, A Tale; and A Widow and a Will (1834) and A Season in Harrogate (1812).

        Mouth of the Fox River (Indiana)

      Paris, Coblenz and London 1842 - A highly evocative view of the confluence of the Fox and Wabash Rivers: the almost pre-Columbian scene is shown at sunset, the final red light of the sun adding an ochre wash to the entire scene. Cattle drink from their watering-place on the opposite bank, a flock of Carolina Parrakeets settles down noisily at the roost for the night, beneath a Bald Eagle perches watchfully: all this is allied with the untamed nature of the landscape and gives us a view of America as it was before the arrival of the white man. Prince Maximilian's health had suffered on the journey out to New Harmony, and during November and December 1832, whilst he recovered, Bodmer and Dreidoppel made many excursions along the rivers in search of zoological specimens. On 6 December 1832 Maximilian was sufficiently recovered to accompany them and as he recorded in his journal `Mr. Bodmer made a drawing from an interesting landscape, the estuary of the Fox River into the Wabash', he goes on, the water was `clear and dark green' and the surrounding forest of `colossal Plantanus trees were shining white in the densely tangled thicket'. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Himely after Bodmer, issue with no imprint line and with no English title, blindstamp. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Warrant. In the Colony of the Cape of Good Hope

      Cape Town, South Africa: 20 August, 1842. Printed warrant form, large folio sheet 550 by 430 mm., completed in manuscript, old folds with some slight damage, signed by Sir John Wylde; framed. Very rare printed warrant form, for use in the Colony of the Cape of Good Hope for transportation to New South Wales. This example has been completed in detailed manuscript regarding the transportation of Private Booy Piet, court-martialled for desertion and the theft of his equipment. Piet's sentence was seven years, and it is particularly interesting to note that the printed form has been amended in manuscript to specify that he be sent to Van Diemen's Land rather than New South Wales (transportation to New South Wales was suspended in 1840, although not formally abolished for another decade). Piet came out to Van Diemen's Land on board the Cape Packet, sailing on 10 October 1842 from Cape Town and arriving in Hobart on 24 November. The Cape Packet is linked with the ill-fated Waterloo, a convict transport that was wrecked at Table Bay, Cape Town in late August of the same year (see Bateson, The Convict Ships, pp. 283-90). Of the 220 male convicts that had boarded the Waterloo at Sheerness, an estimated 72 survived. Bateson notes that the Cape Packet took these survivors to Australia, as well as three prisoners sentenced at the Cape to transportation; it can be assumed that Booy Piet would have been one of these. Booy Piet's convict record held in the Archives Office of Tasmania records him as being a laborer who could not read or write, of dark complexion, curly black hair, high cheekbones, broad nose and black eyes and eyebrows. There are two offences with sentences noted before he was released from the first stage probation on 24 January 1845. Also noted is that he died in hospital in Hobart Town, 28 August 1845. The warrant is signed by Sir John Wylde, former deputy judge advocate in Sydney (1816-25), and chief justice of the Cape of Good Hope from 1827 to 1855. Wylde had a controversial career in Australia, criticised by Bigge, avoided by Macquarie, and finally removed by Brisbane, but he was heavily involved in the Australian judicial system at an important period of its history.

        England's Exiles; or, a View of a System of Instruction and Discipline, as carried into effect during the voyage to the Penal Colonies of Australia

      London: Darton and Clark, 1842. Small octavo, 238 pp., the first few leaves with very minor dampstaining to bottom margin; generally very good in the original printer's green cloth, rather scuffed. The health of convicts on convict transports. Important book by Browning building on his experience as a Surgeon on board convict transports, most notably the Elphinstone which arrived in Hobart in 1836. Colin Arrott Browning (1791-1856) was appointed an assistant surgeon in the navy in 1813, and surgeon less than four years later. Well educated - he took his degree from Edinburgh University Medical College in 1825 - he first visited Australia in the convict ship Surry (arrived Sydney, 1831) and later served in a similar capacity in the Arab (Hobart, 1834), Elphinstone (Hobart, 1836), Margaret (Sydney, 1840), Tortoise (Hobart, 1842), Earl Grey (Hobart, 1843), Mount Stewart Elphinstone (Hobart, 1845) and Hashemy (Sydney, 1849). 'A kindly and religious man but restricted and narrow in outlook, [he] protested against sick prisoners being embarked and complained of the quantity and quality of the medicines and medical comforts placed in convict ships. He was attentive in the medical care of the prisoners and sought to further their education' (ADB). It was in this work that Browning really explained the nature of the reforms he was proposing, with a view to future surgeon-superintendents having a much more coherent and sensible plan to follow, rather than the very modest instructions with which he had been favoured. In his preface Browning does suggest that he has seen evidence that some reforms of the nature explained here had recently been adopted in some ships conveying female convicts. Browning could not be accused of lacking piety, but the present work does provide a well-considered and argued account of overdue reforms to the practice of transportation, and was published in time to be of some impact on the last twenty years or so of ships being sent to Australia. Throughout there are glimpses of life on board based on his own experiences. An appendix deals with preventative medicine: hygiene, clothing, diet, exercise.

        Going to a Fair [Plate I Hunters and hacks]; Going to a Fair [Plate II Cart horses]

      Messrs. Fores, London 1842 - A very fine pair of prints from "Fores's Road Scenes" series, here showing strings of finely observed horses on their way to a horse fair. Cooper Henderson "was educated at Brighton and then Winchester before studying rather idly for the Bar and enjoying a European tour with his father and elder brother, John. While his father and brother sketched panoramas.Cooper Henderson found, to him, more interesting subjects among the coaches, carriages and postillions 'on the road'. On Christmas Eve, 1829, he was married secretly to Charlotte By (then aged sixteen), the daughter of a Thames lighterman. Disapproving of the marriage, his father gave him a small allowance and told him to leave London. Thrown mainly onto his own resources, Cooper Henderson moved to Bracknell in Berkshire and started to paint for his living. He was quickly successful and his pictures of coaches and coaching are well known, being more accurate and lively than those of his near contemporary, James Pollard. He soon received sufficient commissions to afford to return to London where he was reconciled with his parents" (Charles Lane, British Racing Prints, p.119). Charles Lane, Cooper Henderson and the Open Road, p.101; Siltzer p.137. Aquatint engraving, coloured by hand, by J. Harris.

        Mássika, Saki Indian. Wakusáee, Musquake Indian

      Paris, Coblenz and London 1842 - A fine double portrait of these warriors from the Sauk (or Sac) and Fox (Mesquaki, Muskake or Muskwaki) Tribes. Both men are shown half length and were apparently sketched by Bodmer on 27 and 28 March 1833 in St. Louis, Missouri, during the two week period when final arrangements were made for the travelers' journey up the Missouri River. Mássika (`Turtle') was one of a number of Sauk and Fox who came to St. Louis to try to arrange the release of Black Hawk, a Sauk chief, who had engaged in a series of running battles with the US Army before being defeated and captured on 3 August 1832. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Hürlimann after Bodmer, blindstamp.

        A Ramble in Malta and Sicily, in the Autumn of 1841

      London: Tyler & Reed for Smith, Elder & Co, 1842. Royal octavo, chromolithographic additional title by Angas, printed by M. and N. Hanhart, engraved dedication plate, 12 tinted lithographic plates by Angas, two wood-engraved illustrations; plates a little spotted else very good in original green cloth, all edges gilt. Angas' first illustrated work. First edition of Angas' first illustrated work, published the year before he sailed for Australia. This is a subscriber's copy, signed John Abraham on the front free endpaper: there are one hundred and seventy-nine names (including 'Abraham, J. Esq.') on the list of subscribers, and one hundred and ninety-seven copies subscribed for. Angas early showed an interest in natural history and art, but as a young man took a place in a London office. He studied under the natural history artist Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins, thanking the latter's 'new and infallible system' of drawing in the introduction to this work. In August 1841 he left on a tour of the Mediterranean, returning in November, and publishing this account of the trip less than a year later. The work features a handsome series of twelve lithographic plates, taken from his own sketches from nature and drawn by him on the stone. The letterpress is taken from Angas' journal and shows his lively and inquisitive imagination, as well as giving many descriptive details of the pictures. Now surprisingly rare, the Ramble shows Angas coming to maturity as an artist, and makes an important addition to any collection of Australian illustrated books.

        Observations on the Poetics of Aristotle , by Metastasio... with a biographical notice of the author

      Sydney: Kemp & Fairfax, 1842. Small quarto; original embossed cloth boards with dark green calf spine gilt, partially unopened, fine. Perhaps the earliest philosophical work printed in Sydney? Rare, and very fine: a presentation copy (inscribed on the front endpaper to Walter Wrottersley "from the translator") of an unusual publication for this period in Australia, a translation of an obscure commentary on Aristotle. Almost nothing of a philosophical bent was published in Australia before the 1850s and the creation of the Universities of Sydney and Melbourne. Elwin says that he translated part of the eighteenth-century writer Metastasio's critical observations on the Poetics in order to place "such portion as appeared to be likely to engage the attention, as well from the nature of the immediate topic, as from the spirited manner in which it is treated… within reach of the English reader". Metastasio, or Pietro Antonio Domenico Trapassi, is best known today because Mozart used his "La Clemenzo di Tito" as the basis for his libretto. Ferguson originally entered the translator as Elwin Hastings, but the Addenda notes that his identity as Hastings Elwin was established by an inscribed presentation copy offered by Henry Cork, London, Cat. 5 (1929) No. 294. Hastings Elwin was a rather grand figure, friend of the poet Thomas Moore, elected to the NSW Legislative Council in 1843.

Doch bald wechselte er ins Studium der Baukunst, das er nach einem Besuch in Italien - Januar bis Juni 1842 - in St. Petersburg fortsetzte. 1858 wurde er Professor an der Petersburger Akademie. Er entfaltete eine reiche künstlerische Tätigkeit. Bereist 1851 hatte ihn die Großfürstin Helene Pawlowna zu ihrem Architekten ernannt. Nach seinen Plänen wurde 1862 das Stadttheater in Riga erbaut. Nach einem Streit mit der Großfürstin gab Bohnstedt seine Stellung in Petersburg auf und siedelte nach Gotha über und fand hier als Architekt ebenfalls reiche Beschäftigung. In weitesten Kreisen wurde er bekannt durch den 1. Preis für seinen Konkurrenzentwurf zum deutschen Reichstag, der allerdings nicht ausgeführt wurde. Das malerische Werk des Architekten ist recht überschaubar.

        Observations on the Poetics of Aristotle , by Metastasio? with a biographical notice of the author?

      Kemp & Fairfax, Sydney 1842 - Small quarto; original embossed cloth boards with dark green calf spine gilt, partially unopened, fine. Perhaps the earliest philosophical work printed in Sydney? Rare, and very fine: a presentation copy (inscribed on the front endpaper to Walter Wrottersley "from the translator") of an unusual publication for this period in Australia, a translation of an obscure commentary on Aristotle. Almost nothing of a philosophical bent was published in Australia before the 1850s and the creation of the Universities of Sydney and Melbourne. Elwin says that he translated part of the eighteenth-century writer Metastasio's critical observations on the Poetics in order to place "such portion as appeared to be likely to engage the attention, as well from the nature of the immediate topic, as from the spirited manner in which it is treated? within reach of the English reader". Metastasio, or Pietro Antonio Domenico Trapassi, is best known today because Mozart used his "La Clemenzo di Tito" as the basis for his libretto. Ferguson originally entered the translator as Elwin Hastings, but the Addenda notes that his identity as Hastings Elwin was established by an inscribed presentation copy offered by Henry Cork, London, Cat. 5 (1929) No. 294. Hastings Elwin was a rather grand figure, friend of the poet Thomas Moore, elected to the NSW Legislative Council in 1843. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed to Joseph Pentland

      London, 1842. <p>" I Hope to Hatch a Lovely Monster." <p>Owen, Richard (1804-92). Autograph letter signed to Joseph Pentland (1793-1873). [London,] College of Surgeons, Nov. 9, 1842. 3-1/2pp. 182 x 113 mm. Fine.</p><p>Owen&#39;s letter discusses his award of a civil list pension of £200 per year from the British government, an event that marked "a major step up the social ladder for Owen" (Rupke, Richard Owen, p. 52). Owen received his first notification of the honor in a letter dated 1 November 1842 from British Prime Minister Robert Peel. He responded to Peel&#39;s letter the same day, but was still waiting for official confirmation at the time he wrote the present letter to Pentland:</p><p>"As I never see a newspaper your congratulations startled me: but both Mrs. Owen & myself esteem the kindness which prompted them. I have, it is true, been honor&#39;d by a gracious letter of 3 pages & a half from the Premier, proposing with my consent to name me for the Civil List, &c., but beyond that nothing official has yet reached me: & I only trust, for the honor of physiology, that it is intended to give it the same reward as Chemistry has received in the person of Faraday & astronomy in that of Airy."</p><p>In the last phrase Owen was echoing his friend and fellow paleontologist William Buckland, who in January 1842 had sent a letter to Peel recommending Owen for a civil list pension and comparing his national reputation as a scientist to those of Michael Faraday, John Dalton and astronomer George Biddle Airy.</p><p>In a postscript Owen touched on his important researches on the giant extinct ground sloths of South America:</p><p>"I have a grand memoir on the sloths, clearing up all the doubts about Megatherium, &c. I have been in a Mylodontal [&#133;] for 3 months, and hope to hatch a lovely monster."</p><p>The "grand memoir" refers to Owen&#39;s Description of the Skeleton of an Extinct Giant Sloth (1842), an anatomical study of the mylodon skeleton donated to the College of Surgeons in 1841 by Woodbine Parish, Britain&#39;s chargé d&#39;affaires at Buenos Aires. In his paper Owen used "a detailed description of form . . . to infer function, eating habits and habitat" (Rupke, p. 129), defending Cuvier&#39;s and Buckland&#39;s correct claim that the mylodon was indeed a herbivorous sloth and not an insect-eating armadillo-like creature, as some had argued. Owen&#39;s correspondent, Joseph Pentland, was a geographer and naturalist who had studied with Cuvier. Pentland helped to survey a large portion of the Bolivian Andes in 1826 and 1827, and served as British Consul-General in Bolivia from 1836-39.</p>

        Autograph letter signed to Nathaniel Bowditch

      New Haven, 1842. New Haven, 1842. <p>Silliman, Benjamin (1779-1864). Autograph letter signed to Nathaniel Bowditch (1773-1838). 2pp. plus integral address leaf. New Haven, Sept. 5, 1842. 252 x 196 mm. Lightly creased, small portion of address leaf torn away where seal was broken, light soiling along folds but very good. Docketed.</p><p>From chemist and geologist Benjamin Silliman, one of the first American professors of science (at Yale University), founding faculty member of the Yale Medical School and the first to distill petroleum; to mathematician Nathaniel Bowditch, author of The New American Practical Navigator (1802 and subsequent editions to the present), often described as the founder of modern maritime navigation. In the letter Silliman inquires after the health of the wife of his friend Charles Thomas Jackson (1805-80), the Boston chemist and geologist best known for his role in the development of surgical anesthesia (1846). Silliman&#39;s letter reads in part:</p><p>"You are doubtless acquainted with the fact that your neighbor Mrs. Jackson was taken some months since with delirium--which her husband led us to hope was only symptomatic of a fever . . . As we are a long time without information-as Dr. Jackson is probably on his geological survey in New Hampshire & as we have been informed that the ladies of the family are or have been in attendance on Mrs. Jackson in Charlestown I take the liberty to enquire of you whether this interesting friend is restored to her right reason and also in other aspects recovered . . ."</p><p>Jackson had been appointed state geologist for New Hampshire in 1840 and at the time Silliman wrote this letter was engaged in a geological survey of that state. Jackson&#39;s wife, nee Susan Bridge, was a native of Charlestown, a neighborhood in Boston. Wolfe & Patterson, Charles Thomas Jackson: "The Head behind the Hands" (2007), p. 73.</p>

        Collected Works by the Camden Society

      - London - The Camden Society, 1842. - London - The Camden Society, 1842 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A set of four seperate butinformally bound works published by The Camden Society,who were founded in 1838 in Londonand published early historical and literary materials, both unpublished manuscripts and new editions of rare printed books. For an annual subscription (originally 1 per year), members received the Society&#39;s publications. The Society published some works jointly with the Early English Text Society. The following works are included in this collection: The Diary of Thomas Cartwright, by Reverend Joseph Hunter. Three Early English Metrical Romances, edited by John Robson. The Pilgrimage of Sir Richard Guilford, edited by Sir Henry Ellis, andfinally, theDiary of John Rous, Edited by Mary Anne Everett Green. Thomas Cartwright (c. 1535 December 1603) was an English Puritan churchman. Cartwright was a man of much culture and originality, but said to be exceedingly impulsive. His views were distinctly Presbyterian, and he stoutly opposed the Brownists or Independents. He never conceived of a separation between church and state, and may have refused to tolerate any non-conformity with the reformed national Presbyterian church. However, it is believed that the Puritanism of the day owed its systematization and much of its force to him. Sir Richard Guildford, KG (1455 1506) was an English courtier who held important positions at the court of Henry VII, including the office of Master of the Ordnance. He embarked at Rye on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land but the prior died there on6 September. Guildford&#39;s chaplain prepared an account of The Pylgrymage of Sir Richard Guylforde to the Holy Land, A. D. 1506, which Richard Pynson printed in 1511. It was reprinted by Sir Henry Ellis for the Camden Society in 1851. John Rous (1710-1760) was the senior naval officer on the Nova Scotia station during Father Le Loutre&#39;s War (1749-1755). He made a significant contribution to the preservation of Halifax and the defeat of the French, Acadian and Mi&#39;kmaq resistance. As the admiralty did not provide effective naval forces for the defence of Nova Scotia, Rous improvised to establish and protect the new British settlements at Halifax, Lunenburg, and Lawrencetown.

        Po-Ca-Hon-Tas.

      Philadelphia Daniel Rice and J.G. Clarke -44? 1842 - Original hand-coloured lithographed plate from History of the Indian Tribes of North America. Framed and glazed. Overall size: 36.4 by 50.8cm. Fine lithograph of one of the most iconic figures in American history. Pocahontas (born Matoaka, and later known as Rebecca Rolfe, c. 1595 &#150; March 1617) was a Virginia Indian notable for her association with the colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. Pocahontas was the daughter of Powhatan, the paramount chief of a network of tributary tribal nations in the Tsenacommacah, encompassing the Tidewater region of Virginia. In a well-known historical anecdote, she is said to have saved the life of an Indian captive, Englishman John Smith, in 1607 by placing her head upon his own when her father raised his war club to execute him. Pocahontas was captured by the English during Anglo-Indian hostilities in 1613, and held for ransom. During her captivity, she converted to Christianity and took the name Rebecca. When the opportunity arose for her to return to her people, she chose to remain with the English. In April 1614, she married tobacco planter John Rolfe, and in January 1615, bore him a son, Thomas Rolfe. Pocahontas's marriage to Rolfe was the first recorded interracial marriage in American history. In 1616, the Rolfes traveled to London. Pocahontas was presented to English society as an example of the civilized "savage" in hopes of stimulating investment in the Jamestown settlement. She became something of a celebrity, was elegantly fêted, and attended a masque at Whitehall Palace. In 1617, the Rolfes set sail for Virginia, but Pocahontas died at Gravesend of unknown causes. She was buried in a church in Gravesend, but the exact location of her grave is unknown. Numerous places, landmarks, and products in the United States have been named after Pocahontas. Her story has been romanticized over the years, and she is a subject of art, literature, and film. Howes M129; cf. Sabin 43410a.
