Following this volume's publication he returned to Africa, staying there until 1870. "...the father and pioneer of South African mission work..." (DNB). "...a valuable account of mission work among the Bechuanas..." (Mendelssohn). Mendelssohn II p29.

        Description of the Skeleton of an Extinct Gigantic Sloth, Mylodon robustus, Owen, with Observations on the Osteology, Natural Affinities, and Probable Habits of the Megatherioid Quadrupeds in General.

      London: printed by R. and J.E. Taylor, sold by John van Voorst, 1842. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (312 x 245 mm). 176, [50] pp., 24 lithographed plates, 4 folding (one with cloth strengthening at folds), each plate accompanied by leaf with descriptive letterpress, errata slip bound at end. Original cloth, spine gilt-lettered (binding faded, head and foot of spine restored, corners worn). Internally quite crisp and clean. A fine copy. ----FIRST EDITION. ¬"A masterpiece both of anatomical description and of reasoning and inference" (DNB). Woodbine Parish, British consul to at Buenos Aires, donated a fairly complete skeleton of a Megatherium, which was discovered in the Argentinian Pampas, to the Royal College of Surgeons London. Owen identified this as a Mylodon and made the specimen subject matter of this brilliant memoir. His description of the skeleton includes the suggestion that the Mylodon (a South American ground sloth, smaller than the Megatherium) used its tail as a third hind leg for extra support when wrenching over trees. The tripod pose depicted in the large fold-out plate of this memoir became the iconic image of the long-extinct creature. (see N. A. Rupke, Richard Owen, Biology without Darwin, Univ. of Chicago Press, 2009, p. 76). Very Good.

        AUSTRIAN SOUTHERN RAILWAY: Längenprofil der südlichen k.k.Staatsbahnen Mürzzuschlag bis Laibach

      Lithography in black and red, originally dissected in 86 segments and mounted on brown linen on 5 pieces of different size, in original dark brown card slipcase with mounted orange label with gilt title (Slightly age-toned and stained, old pencil annotations in margins, linen torn on some spots and repaired with new white linen verso, slipcase with scuffed margins, label with loss of paper, otherwise in a good condition), slipcase 8°, print circa 41 x 600 cm if joined (16.1 x 236.2 inches). - [Probably Vienna, between 1842-1845]. A rare seemingly unrecorded long engineer’s elevation profile of the Southern Austrian Rail shows the newly built rail between Graz and Ljubjana, Slovenia, finished by 1848. The map bears original annotations and is accompanied with an original slipcase. - This is the only known example of an extremely long engineer’s elevation profile of the Southern Austrian Rail, showing the railroad between Mürzzuschlag, in the vicinity of Graz, Austria, and Ljubljana, Slovenia. This part of the railroad was a part of extremely important rail route, connecting Vienna and Trieste, one of the main engineering achievements of the late 19th century. The undated map was most probably made as a part of a project for the construction of the railroad, before it was built, to study technical difficulties of the terrain and contemporary pencil technical annotations and corrections on the print show the map was perhaps used on the site of the construction. First plans for the construction of the railroad Vienna-Trieste were made in 1837, but the construction did not start until 1839. The rail was built in separate pieces, due to demanding terrain. The first obstacle was a demanding mountain pass Semmering in Austria, on the track Vienna-Graz, ending at the town Mürzzuschlag, where our map starts. The Semmering Railroad was not finished until 1854 and still remains one of the most impressive rail routes in Europe. The track between Mürzzuschlag and Graz was finished in 1844 after two years of construction, followed by the rest of the rail until August 1849, when the first train arrived to Ljubljana. The map can be dated between 1842, when the first measurements on the track Mürzzuschlag-Graz begun, and 1845, when the surveys of the terrain were made on the Slovenian part of the rail. After choosing between three different possibilities of a track between Celje and Ljubljana, the engineers finally agreed on a route presented on the last part of this map in 1845. This map is probably a working copy of an engineer, measuring the terrain for the railway. Maps, such as this one, were often printed for technical use only and were not publicly distributed. We could not trace any other copies of this map on the market nor in institutions worldwide. References: n.a. / unrecorded.

        Native American Chiefs and Warriors.

      Daniel Rice and J.G. Clarke Philadelphia -1844? 1842 - Original hand-coloured lithographed plate from History of the Indian Tribes of North America. Overall size: 57 x 42 cm. Fine lithograph with original hand-colouring of a native American chief and warrior - a landmark in American culture. Thomas McKenny, formerly a director in the Office of Indian Affairs, together with James Hall, a lawyer and writer on the west, embarked on the publication of these lithographs as a way of providing a true visual representation of a fast vanishing culture. The fine coloured illustrations are taken from the work of the artist Charles Bird King who, where possible, painted the subjects from life in his Washington studio, or otherwise re-worked paintings after the watercolours of the artist James Otto Lewis, who had produced an earlier, albeit, cruder, series of lithographs. Only four of the original oil paintings survive (the rest having been destroyed in the Smithsonian fire of 1865), so these lithographs provide the sole remaining likenesses for some of the leading native American leaders of the early nineteenth century. History of the Indian Tribes of North America was the most elaborate publication in the United States up to that time. Howes M129; cf. Sabin 43410a.

        American Notes for General Circulation

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1842. First edition, first issue. Two volumes. 8vo. (xii), 308; (viii), 306, (6) pp., a few gatherings unopened. Publisher's blind stamped cloth, gilt lettered to the spine, early armorial bookplate of a Henry Birkbeck to the front pastedowns and his lightly pencilled ownership inscription to the front free endpaper of volume I, the discreet contemporary ticket of the bookseller Fletcher of Norwich to the front of the same volume. Some fading to the spine, a very small superficial split to the cloth at foot of the lower joint of volume I, though it remains sounds and the set is very good overall. The result of a four month lecture tour of the States and Canada during which Dickens' opinions of the new world fell steadily. On his return it proved popular on this side of the Atlantic while American reviews were unanimously hostile, Emerson noting "Truth is not his object for a single instant...". Dickens composed a mollifying Preface which was removed at the last minute and not published until after his death. In it he states "I went there expecting greater things than I found... Coming home with a corrected and sobered judgement, I consider myself no less bound to do justice to what... I found to be the truth". Smith, II, 3.

Spines slightly rolled, minor rubbing to extremities and corners gently bumped, a few scratches to boards, hinges strengthened, 2 long tears to folding map of Gambia, a few minor nicks to upper edge of leaf B1 and fore edge of DD2 of volume I, overall a very good set. 3 coloured folding maps to volume I.

First editions of these British government documents on a range of subjects relating to the illicit slave trade, bound as volumes 7 and 8 of a 10-volume library series, Reports from Committees: 1842. The volumes are a valuable source of contemporary information regarding the economics of the slave trade and the British government's efforts to abolish it, and draw extensively from the colonial administrator Richard Robert Madden's accounts. Madden was sent to West Africa in 1841 "as a commissioner of inquiry into the administration of British coastal settlements, where he exposed the 'pawn system', which was a disguised form of slavery" (ODNB). The large folding plates are maps of Sierra Leone, Gambia, and the Gold Coast. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A CATALOGUE OF THE CLASSIC CONTENTS OF STRAWBERRY HILL COLLECTED BY HORACE WALPOLE

      London: George Robins, 1842. xxiv,250pp. Quarto. Cloth-backed stiff boards, pictorial title vignette on upper board. Engraved frontis portrait and engraved title, illustrations. Boards edgeworn and somewhat rubbed and soiled; prelims through page 'x' neatly detached, soft vertical crease in engraved title-leaf; generally a good copy of an item rarely found fine. Novelist/collector Hugh Walpole's copy, with his leather Brackenburn bookplate inside the upper board, beneath an inserted example of Horace (Horatio) Walpole's own engraved bookplate (the early state of BP2). This example is a variant of Hazen's edition 'I' of the extensive sale catalogue of Walpole's library and effects. The printing history of the catalogue is moderately complex, as were the circumstances of the sale, and as many as seven editions of the catalogue are described by Hazen, not including the separate catalogue of the London sale. In this copy, as characteristic of Hazen's edition 'I', there are only 152 lots in the tenth day and 140 in the twelfth. However, like in Hazen's edition 'V', the Waldegrave manuscripts (6th day, lots 161-187) have been removed. However, the books of prints in the Round Tower, making up days 7 and 8, are still present. These were removed in edition 'VI', and recatalogued for the London sale. This copy has been sporadically priced in pencil in a contemporary hand, beginning part way through the sixth day (skipping days 7 and 8, as would be expected), occasionally with buyers noted. There are a few instances of detailed annotations about specific lots. Two added engravings of Strawberry Hill have been tipped before the printed title, one by Eastgate after Ireland. Laid in is a somewhat later (1863?) and partially a.l.s. from a bookseller, from 45 Booksellers Row, Strand, reporting results from a related sale, as well as two small folio waste sheets (post- 1853), with printed and revised manuscript descriptions of Irish books affixed, numbering lots 191-207, and noted in pencil as associated with 'W. Ridler," at the same address. Another octavo sheet listing four titles is also laid in. HAZEN (LIBRARY), p. xxix.

        Syria, The Holy Land, Asia Minor &c Illustrated in a series of 120 views, drawn from nature by William H. Bartlett, William Purser, and Thomas Allom. THREE VOLUMES IN ONE.

      Fisher & Son, London - [2], 80 pp., / 76 pp., / 100 pp., [4 index], 3 maps of which one is folding, 121 engraved plates including 3 title engravings and a frontis portrait of Mehmet Ali, contemporary tree calf gilt, rubbed and lightly marked, title gilt on spine, gilt borders on cover, occasional spotting, light marginal damp-staining mainly to front 2 leaves, Fisher Son & Co., London & Paris, [c.1842]. John Carne (1789-1844) traveller and author. He resolved to visit the Holy Places, and accordingly he left England on 26 March 1821. He visited Constantinople, Greece, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and Egypt. On returning back to England he started writing for the ‘New Monthly Magazine’, an account of his travels under the title ‘Letters from the East’. The first edition formed the first part of Fisher’s projected series ‘The Turkish Empire Illustrated’, and appeared in 30 parts of 4 plates each. The great majority of the views are by William Bartlett, who travelled extensively in the Levant. These drawings must have been made on his first journey in 1834-35; this seems to be the first book in which any of Bartlett’s Eastern drawings appear. The third volume includes plates after drawings by Thomas Allom, who also travelled to the levant around 1836-7. Bibliograpgic references: Blackmer 291; Tobler p. 148; Rohricht 1690. Size: 4to.

Together 112 plates, printed on chine collé and mounted on heavy paper. Volume I in original red blindstamped cloth with the covers rather soiled and with edgewear along the spine, mount size: 245 x 345 mm. Later endpapers, most likely because this copy has been recased. The endpapers match the original ones in colour and tone. A title page, followed by the plates with the descriptive letterpress. The plates overall very clean and occasionally some very light foxing on the mounts. All 60 plates protected with tissue guards. Lacking the list of illustrations and one leaf (= two textpages), accompanying one plate. A few of the textpages browned, however, without affecting the legibility. Volume II bound in gilt lined morocco over brown cloth with a gilt ornament in the centre of front - and back board with marbled endpapers, mount size: 258 x 385 mm. The spine richly gilt. All edges gilt of this volume. The extremities a bit rubbed and some foxing on the mounts. Half title only as usual, followed by the list of plates and the plates with the descriptive letterpress. The 52 plates in this volume are not protected with tissue guards. Volume II contains 2 of the 3 known Fizeau plates, viz. the plate of "L'Hotel-de-Ville de Paris" and the plate "Maison Élevée Rue St. Georges". The latter plate is missing in most copies, while the third plate "Bas-relief au Portail Nord de Notre-Dame" is missing in our copy. Each plate is accompanied by 2 - 4 pages of letterpress, written by various experts on the subject shown in the respective plate. The plates in Volume II are not fully in accordance with the list of plates. Missing is the Fizeau plate "Un Bas-relief de Notre-Dame", while there are two extra plates; "Pont de Nemours" and the rare Fizeau Plate "Maison Élevée Rue St. Georges", resulting in a total of 52 plates instead of 51.

        Traité sur l'art de restaurer les Difformités de la Face, selon la méthode par déplacement, ou méthode francaise. Text und Atlas.

      Montpellier, Louis Castel, 1842, 8 und 4, XIV, 468, (2) pp., 2 Bl., 30 doppelseitige Tafeln Textband mit eingebundener orig. Broschur, 2 Halbledereinbände. First Edition. The first systematic textbook and atlas of plastic surgery of the face, and the second general work on plastic surgery published in France.Labat (1832) and Blandin (1836) produced the first treatise on plastic surgery in France, followed in 1842 by Serre. The double - page plates are pre- and post - operative portraits, with insets of operative techniques.Serre was the chief exponent of the "sliding" or "French" method, which he applied in his textbook in various facial operations. The method was intended originally for eyelid reconstruction, but was applied to replacing other parts "on the flat."Michel Serre (1799.1848) was the student and successor of Jacques Mathieu Delpech (1777-1832) who performed the first rhinoplasty in France in 1823 (see G-M 5741.1) and pioneered in the correction of congenital facial deformities. Delpech, however, wrote no separate work on plastic surgery. Serre's textbook incorporates his teachings. Zeis gives Serre credit for some new additions to plastic surgery, and points out that his first plate shows implantation of skin from the palm of the hand to reconstruct the columella. This is acknowledged despite the conflicts between German and French surgeons over priority in the new field. Zeis, of course, was a great partisan of the Germans, and claimed that Dieffenbach had originated the so-called "French" method which Serre promoted (ibid. 102-03). Serre, while not claiming that he invented it, argues in his historical account that the method originated in France. Exceptionally rare on the market in any condition.Recens.: Zeis in Schm.

      London : Taylor And Walton 1842, 1844, 1847, 1848, 1842. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Full Calf. Very Good. Complete English Language Edition In Six Thick Volumes Of The Lectures On Greek And Roman History By Barthold Georg Niebuhr (1776 - 1831). A Uniform Set In Full Tan Calf, Five Bands, Morocco Spine Labels, Elaborate Gilt Tooling To Spines, Gilt Ruled Borders And Devices On Covers, Brightly Marbled Endpapers, And Matching Marbled Page Edges. Front Board Of Volume Vi Detached. Gilt Bright, Spines Darkened, Some Rubbing, Small Frays At Tips. Bookplates Of Charles Henry Turner, Bishop Of Islington, And Thomas Turner. Niebuhr, A Danish-German Statesman And Historian, Became Germany's Leading Historian Of Ancient Rome And A Founding Father Of Modern Scholarly Historiography. Classical Rome (Rather Than Greece) Caught The Admiration Of German Thinkers. By 1810 Niebuhr Was Inspiring German Patriotism In Students At The University Of Berlin By His Analysis Of Roman Economics And Government. Historians Generally View Niebuhr As A Leader Of The Romantic Era And Symbol Of German National Spirit That Emerged After The Defeat At Jena. But He Was Also Deeply Rooted In The Classical Spirit Of The Age Of Enlightenment In His Intellectual Presuppositions, His Use Of Philologic Analysis, And His Emphasis On Both General And Particular Phenomena In History. He Was Born In Copenhagen, The Son Of Carsten Niebuhr, A Prominent German Geographer Resident In The City. His Father Provided His Early Education.The Precocious Young Niebuhr By 1794 Was Already An Accomplished Classical Scholar And Who Read Several Languages. That Year He Entered The University Of Kiel, Where He Studied Law And Philosophy. In 1796, He Left Kiel To Become Private Secretary To The Danish Finance Minister, Count Schimmelmann. But In 1798 He Gave Up This Appointment And Traveled In Great Britain, Spending A Year At Edinburgh Studying Agriculture And Physics. Of His Stay In Great Britain, He Said "My Early Residence In England Gave Me One Important Key To Roman History. It Is Necessary To Know Civil Life By Personal Observation In Order To Understand Such States As Those Of Antiquity. I Never Could Have Understood A Number Of Things In The History Of Rome Without Having Observed England."Niebuhr's Roman History Counts Among Epoch-Making Histories Both As Marking An Era In The Study Of Its Special Subject And For Its Momentous Influence On The General Conception Of History. Leonhard Schmitz Said: "The Main Results Arrived At By The Inquiries Of Niebuhr, Such As His Views Of The Ancient Population Of Rome, The Origin Of The Plebs, The Relation Between The Patricians And Plebeians, The Real Nature Of The Ager Publicus, And Many Other Points Of Interest, Have Been Acknowledged By All His Successors." Other Alleged Discoveries, Such As The Construction Of Early Roman History Out Of Still Earlier Ballads, Have Not Been Equally Fortunate; But If Every Positive Conclusion Of Niebuhr's Had Been Refuted, His Claim To Be Considered The First Who Dealt With The Ancient History Of Rome In A Scientific Spirit Would Remain Unimpaired, And The New Principles Introduced By Him Into Historical Research Would Lose Nothing Of Their Importance. He Suggested, Though He Did Not Elaborate, The Theory Of The Myth, So Potent An Instrument For Good And Ill In Modern Historical Criticism. He Brought In Inference To Supply The Place Of Discredited Tradition, And Showed The Possibility Of Writing History In The Absence Of Original Records. By His Theory Of The Disputes Between The Patricians And Plebeians Arising From Original Differences Of Race He Drew Attention To The Immense Importance Of Ethnological Distinctions, And Contributed To The Revival Of These Divergences As Factors In Modern History. More Than All, Perhaps, Since His Conception Of Ancient Roman Story Made Laws And Manners Of More Account Than Shadowy Lawgivers, He Undesignedly Influenced History By Further Popularizing That Conception Of It Which Lays Stress On Institutions, Tendencies And Social Traits.

"Chevers's article gave the first clear account of chronic constrictive pericarditis. "He discussed the compression effects of pericardial adhesions and he manner in which they restricted both systole and disastole of the heart, emphasitzing particularly the interference with diastole. Clevers believed that, when cardiac enlargement acompanied the occurrence of pericardial adhesions, some other cause for the enlagrement must be sought, such as valvular lesions. In fact he was of the opinion that constriction of the heart was capable of producing athrophy of the organ" Willius & Dry, pp.130-131 Garrison & Morton No.2752 Norman Col. 467

        An Act (5 & 6 Vict. Cap. 35) for granting duties on profits arising from property, professions, trades, and offices, until the sixth day of April 1845. Passed 22d June 1842.

      London: printed by George E. Eyre and Andrew Spottiswoode 1842 - 8vo., 283 + (1)pp., original cloth lettered in black on upper cover, the cloth faded, spine browned, else a fine copy with the early ownership signature of Craufurd of Craufurdland> in Ayrshire. 'In 1842, then, Peel was addressing himself through the fiscal system to the health of the economy and to the morale of the nation as a whole. He resolved to redistribute the tax burden by reducing duties upon articles of mass consumption and reintroducing the income tax which had been abolished after a back-bench revolt in 1815. Reducing duties would help to get the nation back to work and take the momentum out of the Chartist movement. Peel did not recognize the political aspirations of the Chartists, and (unlike his father) he would never himself propose statutory restrictions upon the hours of labour. But he understood hunger, and he wanted thoughts of ‘sedition’ to be forgotten ‘in consequence of greater command over the necessaries and minor luxuries of life’ (Hansard 3, 87.1048). Imposing a peacetime income tax would demonstrate that the British state was an equitable one, in which burdens were placed (despite the warnings of political economists who identified income as the source of savings and the route to capital formation) upon those best able to bear them. These measures had to be sold to a party which was still solidly protectionist. Accordingly, in 1842, grain was singled out for separate treatment and dealt with first, and on 9 February Peel announced a thorough revision of the sliding scale of 1828—to make it more defensible. Then, on 11 March, when he introduced the budget—which he did himself (the complaisant Goulburn stepping aside)—he began by making much of the deficit. Having worked up a sense of urgency he explored and rejected alternative remedies (lower expenditure, increased duties, and the ‘wretched expedient’ of borrowing). Finally he came to his own plan. An income tax of 7d. in the pound on incomes over £150 p.a. was to be imposed for three years. This would turn the deficit into a surplus. With that surplus Peel proposed to undertake ‘a complete review, on general principles, of all the articles of the tariff’. No duty should ever again be prohibitive. Imports were to be categorized (the word ‘consolidated’ was not mentioned but might not have been out of place) into raw materials, semi-finished articles, and manufactured products, which were not to pay more than 5 per cent, 12 per cent, and 20 per cent respectively. Duties were reduced on 750 out of the 1200 articles in the tariff (Hansard 3, 61.422–76). It was Peel's finest hour; the crisis of the century was met by the fiscal reform of all the centuries. The budget brought the resignation of the duke of Buckingham, and Peel recalled that ‘these changes were not effected without great murmuring and some open opposition to the Government on the part of many of its supporters’ (Memoirs, 2.100–01). But in fact it was a wonderfully ambiguous measure. He had rationalized the tariff: he had taken a step towards free trade. He could still move in either direction.' [John Prest in ODNB].

        NEW ZEALAND: DIE COLONISATION VON NEU-SEELAND. EIN VORTRAG, IM WISSENSCHAFTLICHEN VEREINE ZU BERLIN AM 22. JANUAR 1842, VON KARL RITTER.

      8° (20.5 x 12.5 cm / 8 x 5 inches): Collation Complete – 52 pp., 1 folding map (23.5 x 28 cm / 9 x 11 inches), bound in contemporary marbled boards (Very Good, old library stamps to title, text and map clean and crisp, binding with shelf-ware). - Berlin: Wilhelm Besser, 1842. Very rare – the first printing of the famous geographer Carl Ritter’s insightful and influential discourse on the early colonization of New Zealand, based upon his extensive interviews of principals of the New Zealand Company, featuring an original map, published in Berlin in 1842. - This is the very rare first printing of Carl Ritter’s discourse on the early colonization of New Zealand, published in Berlin barely four years after the New Zealand Company had begun its activities in earnest. Ritter, along with his friend Alexander von Humboldt, is considered to be the father of modern geography, and while he never stepped foot anywhere near New Zealand, he maintained a particular fascination for this distant land, with its unusual geography, native Maori peoples, and endemic species of wildlife. In 1841, Ritter traveled to London to interview several of the main backers of the New Zealand Company, the syndicate that possessed the official mandate to settle and develop New Zealand on behalf of the British Crown. These interviewees included politicians and financiers, as well as Company employees who had returned to England from New Zealand. Ritter had such a great international reputation; the Company’s principals were honoured by the opportunity, as so provided the German geographer with remarkably candid and detailed insights into the early colonization of New Zealand. This imbues the present work with considerable historical value. Ritter consolidated the valuable insights gleaned in London into a speech he delivered the Economic Union of Berlin on January 22, 1842. The present work is thus the text of his speech, slightly edited for style. It is jam-packed with fascinating facts and statistics, as well as detailed observations on the history, geography, natural sciences, native peoples, climate and economic potential of New Zealand. Importantly, the discourse provides insider information on the early development of the Company’s colonization schemes, which were then focused on settling parts of the North Island. Ritter provides a highly positive impression of New Zealand, as having the ideal climate to foster a modern European society on the other side of the globe. He highly rates the character of the Company’s officers glowingly and commends the organization’s plans for developing the islands. He predicts a bright future for New Zealand. Indeed, as of 1841, the Company seemed to have made a good start towards their initial goals. It had made peace with Maori, upon signing the Treaty of Waitangi (1840); it had ensured that New Zealand was formally made a colony (1841); and it had successfully established several towns, which would subsequently become some of New Zealand’s major cities. It was only in 1843 that the Company started to fall into serious financial and organizational problems. Thus, Ritter’s assessment seemed astute at the time. A highlight of Ritter’s work is an attractive original folding map that features the world in two hemispheres, noting New Zealand’s global position and the fastest travel route between England and New Zealand. The composition is completed with two cartographic insets: one with a map of the Cook Strait (which divides the North and South Islands); and the other being a map of Port Nicholson, the location of Wellington.
