        Bradshaw's Railway Companion

      Bradshaw and Blacklock, 27 Brown Street, London 1842 - 1842 ed. of Bradshaw's Railway Companion "Containing the times of departure, fares, &c. of the Railways in England and also Hackney Carriage fares, from the principal Railway stations. Illustrated with maps of the country through which the railways pass, and plans of London, Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester. Price one shilling." One of the joys of these timetables is the absolute clarity of the tiny print. Fine brown cloth-covered card, with gold and green label to front. 2 ink spots to front. Front yellow eps have a neat repair to guttering and text block is still firmly bound. (The guttering having split is probably due to there being frequent pasted in inserts as time-tables changed, thickening the text block.) Front fold-out map of London East & West has 4 railways lines entering the city, hand-marked in red ink. Opposite page 22 is fold-out fine India paper linear map showing height and distance of the railway lines, with two or three light brown marks to edge. Following page 31 are hand-coloured country maps, and final fold-out map is of England and Wales, with existing and in-progress lines hand-marked in red and yellow ink. Also listed are canal, cab, coach and fly fares for the various cities and an advertisement for steam boat connections between Liverpool and Carlisle. No tears. The plan of Liverpool City has two brown stains to opposing top edges. Several pastings of contemporary up-dates to timetables etc. An 1843 edition of the above is also currently available.

        Chart of Part of the N.W. Coast of Australia by Phillip P. King

      London,: Admiralty Hydrographic Office, after, 1842.. Engraved map measuring 589 x 880 mm., a fine copy backed on linen. Striking Admiralty chart prepared by Captain Phillip Parker King from his survey voyages of 1818-22 and revised with information from the Beagle survey of northern Australian waters during 1837-42.This map covers the vast coastline from Cape Ford to the LacepÈdË Islands and is from a series of eight charts mapping the northern and west coasts of Australia. It is a lasting testament King's commitment to completing the mapping of the Australian continent, and so completing the work of Cook and Flinders.First published in June 1825, this chart was prepared by King from the results of his four expeditions to chart to northernmost coast of Australia between 1818 and 1822 as commander of the Mermaid and Bathurst. The first expedition sailed in December 1817 carrying the botanist Allan Cunningham and surveyor John Septimus Roe. Two further voyages in the Mermaid ensued in the following years, culminating in that of the Bathurst during 1821-22. In addition to the invaluable mapping of these remote and treacherous waters, King's expedition yielded a bounty of information on the natural history and Aboriginal tribes of the region.This edition of King's chart is revised with additions from the Beagle surveys of northern Australian waters during 1837-42, commanded first by John Clements Wickham and later by John Lort Stokes. Both men served under King aboard the Beagle during the South American surveys of 1827 to 1830, and later accompanied Robert FitzRoy and Charles Darwin on their famous voyage of discovery 1833-36.Detailed and finely engraved, the chart is the work of John Walker and his likewise named son, engravers to the Admiralty (John Walker senior was long favoured by Dalrymple on account of the finesse of his work). It bears the stamp of "D. Wald Admiralty Agent Port Adelaide.".British Map Engravers , p.692; Ritchie 'The Admiralty Chart', pp.173-74; Tooley, 805 (first edition).

        Die organische Chemie in ihrer Anwendung auf Physiologie und Pathologie.

      Verlag Friedrich Vieweg u. Sohn, Braunschweig 1842 - 8vo (207x132 mm). xvi, [2], 342, [2] pp. including half title. Contemporary cardboard with handwritten paper label; interior foxed throughout, half title with chipping to fore-edge. ---- Garrison-Morton 677; PMM 310b; Waller 5796; Wellcome III, p. 515; Norman 1351; Sparrow 133. - FIRST EDITION. "With this book Liebig introduced the concept of metabolism into physiology" (Garrison-Morton). Liebig envisioned his book, titled Die Thierchemie in later editions, as a complement to his researches into the chemistry of plants. In it he showed, "like Lavoisier, that animal heat is not innate, but the result of combustion, introduced the concept of metabolism (Stoffwechsel); and classified animal foodstuffs as fats, carbohydrates and proteins according to their function. He thus became the founder of the modern science of nutrition" (PMM). The work aroused "sharply divergent reactions. Even those who reacted against it, however, began to view the chemical phenomena of life differently than they had before, for Liebig had provided one of the first comprehensive pictures of the overall meaning of the ceaseless chemical exchanges which form an integral part of the vital processes. As with his agricultural chemistry, Liebig's physiological writings provided an impetus which outlasted the refutation of some of his specific theories" (DSB).

Ainsworth (1805-1882) wrote 39 novels of which Windsor Castle is one of lthe most successful. From 1842 to 1853 he edited Ainsworth's Magazine. He was extremely popular for his swift narrative & vivid scene-setting with enormous sales in the mid-century (See Sadleir No. 32 for his copy in 3 volumes containing 296,300,326pp (Sadleir. XIX Century Fiction). Ainsworth wrote Windsor Castle in 1842 while he was publishing The Miser's Daughter. During this time, he was constantly working in order to publish the novel by April, and Ainsworth only stopped when his mother, Ann Ainsworth, died on 15 March 1842. It was published in a serialized from in the Ainsworth's Magazine starting Juuly 1842 and ending in June 1843, and George Cruikshank, illustrator of The Miser's Daughter later became illustrator of Windsor Castle. The focus of the novel is on the events surrounding Henry VIII's replacing Catherine of Aragon with Anne Boleyn as his wife. Intertwined with the Court is the story of Herne the Hunter, a spirit of Windsor Forest. Windsor Castle is rooted in the legend of Herne the Hunter. Stories, including those found in Shakespear's Richard II describe the supernatural keeper of Windsor forest. The illustrations for Windsor Castle dominate the text. They were started by Tony Johannot, a French illustrator, After producing four illustrations for the Ainsworth's Magazine, he was replaced by Cruikshank as the illustrator for the rest of the work. In addition to the two illustrators, W. Alfred Delamotte worked on the novel. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

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

      London: Messrs. Fores, 1 December 1842. Aquatint engraving, coloured by hand, by J. Harris. 8 7/8 x 23 3/4 inches approx. 12 3/8 x 26 1/4 inches approx. 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, 1929, 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).

        HANGING SCROLL OF FUJI

      18. Good. [KAKEMONO] Kawabata GYOKUSHO^, artist. HANGING SCROLL OF MT.FUJI. Appears to have the original mid to late Meiji silk mounting with wooden roller handles. The image size, on silk, is X cm. An abbreviate and somewhat abstract Fuji looms in the distance over a haboku style foreground of gnarled trees on a crag. Gyokusho^ (1842-1913) was an important figure in Tokyo art circles at the turn of the century. He had studied Western painting in his youth under Charles Wirgman, but returned to tradition and became (according to Roberts) "the last great representative of the Shijo^ school." He was talented in more than Shijo^ style, however, as this painting illustrates. Haboku is a most difficult technique, which in Japan goes back to Sesshu^. It is often attempted, but hardly ever successfully. This painting is, in our opinion, successful. With uniform toning of the silk and a faint water spot, else very good. A lovely work.

        Warrant. In the Colony of the Cape of Good HopeÖ

      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.Archives office Tasmania, Online Record Con37/1/1; Bateson, 'The Convict Ships', p.289.

        Van Diemens Land

      London: John Arrowsmith, February 15, 1842 [issued 1850]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour. Mild soiling at centerfold, otherwise excellent. 25 1/4 x 21 1/2 inches. A very fine map of Tasmania, depicting the island during an especially fascinating period in its settlement, by one of the great London mapmakers From the London Atlas, Jan. 1, 1850. Van Diemans Land became Tasmania in 1853, at the same time its last shipment of convicts arrived from England. Abel Tasman (1609? - 1659), a Dutch navigator, discovered the island in 1642 and named it Van Diemans Land. The British had taken possession of the island in 1803. It was used initially as a penal colony but about the time this map was made, rich geological resources had been discovered, including gold, zinc, copper, silver, tin and lead. Arrowsmith's map is characteristically handsome and intriguing, being copied from manuscript surveys. Vast portions of the island remained to be surveyed and continued to be for a very long time thereafter. Tooley,The Printed Maps of Tasmania, 78; Printed Maps of Australia, 119.

        Letters from Hofwyl by a Parent, on the Educational Institutions of De Fellenberg. With An Appendix, Containing Woodbridge's Sketches of Hofwyl, Reprinted from the Annals of Education

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans 1842 First edition. Modern marbled boards with printed paper spine label. . Octavo. Very good. Louisa Mary Barwell (1800-1885) was the daughter of inventor and writer on music, Richard Mackenzie Bacon (1776-1844), and from the age of eighteen, she was associated with her father in the editorship of the Quarterly Musical Magazine and Review (1818-1830). After her marriage to wine merchant John Barwell, she turned her attention to the composition of educational works, contributing regularly to the Quarterly Journal of Education and the New Monthly Magazine. She was particularly known for her writings on music education. The Barwells became friends with Philipp Emmanuel von Fellenberg and enrolled their sons at his school in Switzerland. Later her husband, who shared her interest in education, was instrumental in securing the success of a scheme by which a charity day school for girls in Norwich was converted into an industrial training school for girls. Louisa Barwell also wrote books for children, including Little Lessons for Little Learners (1833) and Pleasant Stories in Simple Language (1850). Her popular book, Childhood's Hours (1851), was used in the royal nursery by Queen Victoria's children. (See Oxford DNB).

Top edges gilt. 3/4 bound in blue Moroccan leather. Gilt along edges on front and back covers. Spine gilt in 6 compartments, with gilt title and volume number, and gilt flourishes. Name plate of Joseph Harriman pasted to inner front cover of each volume. A beautiful set, suitable for a gift. Please see our pictures of this lovely set.<br><br>Francis D&#39;Arblay, formerly Burney, was an English novelist, playwright and diarist whose career began in the late 18th Century. Now believed to have had dyslexia, she fell behind in her education as a young girl, but her ambitious personality enabled her to educate herself while her sisters were sent to be educated in Paris. Her journal entries first began in March of 1768 and spanned over seventy-two years. Burney used the entries as a form of correspondence with friends and family, as they contained her observations of events in her life, and descriptions of the behavior of various artists and their visits to her family&#39;s home. Her journals also contain details of her father, Charles Burney, and his works. Led to believe her writing was un-ladylike and improper, Burney harshly edited many of her earlier entries and destroyed several of her manuscripts. However, there is still much to learn from her diary and letters, such as details of her husband, General Alexandre D&#39;Arblay, and his service in the government of Napoleon Bonaparte, which kept Burney in France for ten years. In addition, she documented her own mastectomy, one of the most compelling early accounts in existence, as anesthetics had not been developed at that time, and she was conscious for the entire procedure.

        Ka_Na_Pi_Ma, An Ottawa Chief.

      Daniel Rice & James G. Clark, Philadelphia 1842 - 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. As a boy, Ka-na-pi-ma was educated in Catholic schools both in America and Italy, but returned to his home and became chief of his nation. He signed the treaty between the Ottawa and the United States giving up vast amounts of land. A few small tears around edges and one larger repaired tear at top of page. Slight tape residue along top and bottom edges. One of many Native American portraits in our collection. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20" x 14".

        [ORIGINAL TYPESCRIPT OF A WORK OF HISTORICAL FICTION ENTITLED That Mutiny of Ours, BASED ON THE TRUE INCIDENT OF THE MUTINY ONBOARD THE USS SOMERS IN 1842, WHICH WAS ALSO AN INSPIRATION FOR HERMAN MELVILLE&#39;S Billy Budd]

      Palo Alto, Ca. [late 1930s - early 1940s].. [4],276,[1]9pp. of typescript on loose quarto sheets, a total of some 70,000 words. A few leaves with some edgewear and tears. Occasional neat manuscript corrections. Very good. This is an original typescript of a work of historical fiction based on the 1842 alleged mutiny on board the American Navy ship, USS Somers, the only mutiny aboard a U.S. naval vessel which led to executions. This work was written by Fred J. Buenzle, who served as a yeoman in the U.S. Navy in the closing decade of the 1890s, and though fictionalized is grounded in historical research and his own experiences of naval life. All the main characters in the historical events of the Somers affair appear as characters in Buenzle&#39;s telling. Coincidentally, the mutiny on board the Somers is cited as an inspiration for Herman Melville&#39;s novel, BILLY BUDD. Melville&#39;s first cousin, Lt. Guert Gansevoort, served on the Somers and participated in the court martial that led to the execution of three sailors accused of mutinying with the intention of using the ship for piracy. One of the sailors hanged was Midshipman Philip Spencer, the son of the Secretary of War, John C. Spencer. Fred J. Buenzle (1872-1946), the author of this manuscript, enlisted in the United States Navy in May, 1889, at the age of seventeen. Early in his career he saw service in the Caribbean and Asia. In 1893, while in Shanghai, he quit the Navy, and taught Chinese sailors for a bit, but he reenlisted in 1896. As a yeoman, his main service was as a stenographer and typist for officers, and after the sinking of the Maine during the Spanish-American War, Buenzle served as stenographer for the court of inquiry led by Admiral William Sampson in Havana. His service for Admiral Sampson continued throughout the war. Later he established and ran the yeoman school at Newport, and in 1901 he founded and edited THE BLUEJACKET, a periodical that promoted high standards for enlisted men, and that also sought to defend their rights. Buenzle is perhaps best known for his book, BLUEJACKET, published in 1939 and described in the introduction to the Naval Institute Press reprint as "the most comprehensive and graphic memoir of the enlisted man&#39;s life during the decade of the 1890s, when the Navy completed its transformation from wood, sail, and auxiliary steam power to steel, electricity, and the essential features of the modern warship." His longstanding interest in the welfare and treatment of common sailors in the U.S. Navy is well indicated by his choice of topic for this work, and shines through in his text.

        Common American Wild Cat. Male. [Pl. 1]

      - New York: J. J. Audubon, 1842. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by J.T. Bowen of Philadelphia. 21 1/2 x 27 3/8 inches. A fine image of the American Wildcat: one of the best images from the greatest illustrated natural history work to be produced in America during the nineteenth century. This very fine plate is from the Imperial folio edition of John James Audubon's The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, produced entirely in the United States. This was the first plate and reflects Audubon's unerring sense of the dramatic. This is the Wildcat as he is encountered: fierce, ready to attack and quite beautiful. This first plate also demonstrates as aspect of the work not often acknowledged. Audubon was persuaded to produce the prints via lithography rather than engraving (as the Birds of America had been) by John Bowen, who guaranteed that the fur of the animals depicted would be as fine as they would have been had they been engraved. Clearly, Bowen proved his point in this splendid image. The production of the Quadrupeds was begun by John James Audubon and his sons at about the same time as the commercially-successful octavo edition of The Birds of America. Unlike the double-elephant folio, the Quadrupeds was produced entirely in the United States. William Reese notes that "By 1843 the Audubon family business was a well-oiled machine, involving John James, his two sons, and various in-laws and friends. The octavo Birds was still in production when J.T. Bowen began to produce the plates for the elephant folio edition of the Quadrupeds, the largest successful color plate book project of 19th-century America. It took the family five years to publish 150 plates in thirty parts. The massive project was a commercial success, thanks to the close management of Victor. There were about three hundred subscribers." (Stamped with a National Character pp.58-59). Cf. Bennett, p. 5; cf. Reese, Stamped With A National Character 36; cf. Sabin 2367; cf. Wood, p. 209

        THE DIAL: A MAGAZINE FOR LITERATURE, PHILOSOPHY, AND RELIGION, VOLUME II: July 1841, October 1841, January 1842, & April 1842

      E. P. Peabody/John Green, Boston & London 1842 - Contemporary half calf leather with calf corners and marbled boards; bound without wrappers. A prototype of the 20th-century little magazine, the DIAL was the most important American literary periodical of the 19th century and one of the scarcest with print runs never exceeding 300 copies. First edited by Margaret Fuller (1840-42) and then by Ralph Waldo Emerson (1842-44), it not only featured many of their most important works but also introduced the writings of Henry David Thoreau. Published only from July 1840 to April 1844, Volume II's four issues contain two poems by Thoreau, including his important "Friendship," later collected in his first book, Elizabeth Palmer Peabody, and much by Emerson including his defining piece "Transcendentalism." Page 421 has an early ink correction, possibly in the hand of the editor. Rubbing to spine and boards. Tight, clean, and Near Fine [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Text in parallel columns. [Bound with] Holyoake, George Jacob [1817-1906], Defendant. The Trial of George Jacob Holyoake, On an Indictment for Blasphemy, Before Mr. Justice Erskine, And a Common Jury, At Gloucester, August the 15th, 1842. From Notes Specially Taken by Mr. Hunt; The Authorities Cited in the Defence Being Quoted at Full Length. London: Printed for "The Anti-Persecution Union," by Thomas Paterson, [1]842. 68 pp. [And] Southwell, Charles, Defendant. Carpenter, William, Reporter. The Trial of Charles Southwell, (Editor of "The Oracle of Reason"), For Blasphemy. Before Sir Charles Wetherall, Recorder of the City of Bristol, January the 14th, 1842. Specially Reported. London: Hetherington, 1842. iv, 104 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlets bound into contemporary cloth, gilt title to spine. Some rubbing to extremities with wear to corners and spine ends, faint inkstains and dampstaining to boards. Moderate toning to text, occasional foxing, internally clean. Unique. * After breaking away from Robert Owen&#39;s socialist movement, Southwell opened a free-thought bookshop in Bristol with William Chilton and John Field in 1841. Holyoake joined him the following year. Southwell and Holyoake went on to establish the Oracle of Reason, a periodical devoted to atheism. After a year the authorities had enough of their publication, and the two editors were tried for blasphemy. Both were acquitted and their trials stand as landmarks in the history of free speech. In 1851 Holyoake would be the defendant in the last blasphemy trial in Great Britain. Our volume is notable because it combines a complete run of the first year of the Oracle with the two trials it provoked. (Publication of the Oracle ceased at the end of 1843). Both trial accounts are scarce, individual issues and a complete runs of Volume 1, are rare.

        The Meet...; The Return from the Hunt. from a Painting by W.J. Shayer

      London: William Spooner, [no date but circa 1842] -1 July 1842. A pair of lithographs, coloured by hand, &#39;drawn by J.H. Lynch&#39;. (Expert marginal repairs, margin of first plate with imprint shaved. Both prints re- backed). 16 3/4 x 24 3/8 and 16 3/4 x 24 1/2 inches. 20 5/16 x 27 3/16 and 20 1/2 x 27 1/8 inches. A marvellously atmospheric pair of images after paintings by the Sussex-born artist, William Shayer. The first plate ably captures slightly nervous bonhomie with which the members of the hunt greet each other. One rider blows his horn as the pack with the hunt servants make their way through a small hamlet and up the hill towards the meeting place. On the skyline of the hill on the left a further group of riders can be seen making their way towards the meeting point. The hounds in the right foreground are alert, their flags in the air and keen to go off. The second plate presents a bucolic scene: at the end of a successful day in the field, members of the hunt gather outside a local pub, the landlord serves stirrup cup whilst the riders smoke and discuss the day&#39;s sport. In the mid-ground the pack is led back to the kennels by the huntsman, followed by a couple of riders and a gentleman lucky enough to have his carriage ready to convey him homewards. Sold as a pair.

Mathews was of the first class to graduate from the College of the City of New York [later New York University], who, though subsequently admitted to the bar, gave up the law in favor of literary pursuits. As such, he was "a prominent and vocal proponent of international copyright who wrote about it and spoke of it as often as he could. He drew attention to the business practices of American publishers who would reprint pirated editions of popular European writings without duly compensating the authors and were reluctant to publish American authors, whom they would have to pay for their work. As an editor of Arcturus: Journal of Books and Opinions, as a contributing writer for the Literary World, and in other periodicals of the day, Mathews argued for mutual recognition of copyright by the countries of the world. In February 1842, during a dinner to honor Charles Dickens, Mathews delivered an impromptu speech on the subject." [ANBO].& & It is the above mentioned speech ("Revised by the Speaker") that is here offered [bound with Tavistock Books ID #37417, price for both titles in the one volume]. & & A rare publication of this early American advocate for International Copyright, with OCLC recording just 5 holding institutions, not a copy of which is located outside New England.
