        REPORT OF THE CASE OF EDWARD PRIGG AGAINST THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA. ARGUED AND ADJUDGED IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES, AT JANUARY TERM, 1842. IN WHICH IT WAS DECIDED THAT ALL THE LAWS OF THE SEVERAL STATES RELATIVE TO FUGITIVE SLAVES ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND VOID; AND THAT CONGRESS HAVE THE EXCLUSIVE POWER OF LEGISLATION ON THE SUBJECT OF FUGITIVE SLAVES ESCAPING INTO OTHER STATES.

      Stereotyped by L. Johnson,, Philadelphia: 1842 - 140pp, scattered foxing to the early leaves. Bound in original publisher's cloth [worn at extremities], rebacked. Very Good. With the contemporary ownership signature of Abner Updegraff. This is the first edition of "the earliest of the three most important Supreme Court decisions on slavery" [Cover, Justice Accused 166] [the others being Dred Scott and Ableman v. Booth]. It is also the first Supreme Court case construing the Constitution's Fugitive Slave Clause [Article IV Section 2], requiring delivery to the master of his slave who had escaped into another State. With the arguments of counsel, it precedes even the official printing, a measure of public excitement. The case "rivals Dred Scott v. Sandford in historical importance" [Fehrenbacker, The Dred Scott Case 43]. Prigg was a Maryland professional slave-catcher. He seized Margaret Moran, an alleged fugitive, in Pennsylvania, and took her back to Maryland. He had not, as required by Pennsylvania law, obtained a State official's Certificate of Removal; indeed, a Pennsylvania court had refused to issue a Certificate. Pennsylvania indicted him for kidnapping; Maryland extradited him to Pennsylvania, where he was tried and convicted. The issue on appeal was the extent, if any, to which State requirements could alter the Federal constitutional provisions, as elaborated by Congress's Fugitive Slave Act of 1793. Justice Story wrote the Opinion for the Court, Chief Justice Taney concurring, with only one dissent. The Court held that Congress had exclusive power to regulate the rendition of fugitive slaves. Pennsylvania's additional requirement of a Certificate of Removal was void. The Court also held that slave-catchers had a right of 'self-help': that is, they could seize alleged fugitives without judicial approval. But, the Court held, the federal government lacked power to compel State officials to enforce the Fugitive Slave Act. These disparate conclusions increased already-heightened friction between Slave States-- thus emboldened to pursue self-help-- and Free States, thus encouraged to decline aid to slave-catchers.Finkelman 61-63.

        Album Pittoresque d’un Voyage Autour du Monde Excécuté par Ordre du Gouvernement Français

      Ch. Noblet, Paris 1842 - Oblong folio, with 25 engraved plates, original crimson cloth. A scarce series of views of places visited by Laplace’s Artémise voyage. The plates, all by Pâris, include a fine Hawaiian view as well as a view of the Tasmanian penal settlement. There is also a view of the Artémise being careened at Papeete in Tahiti. The other images show the Artémise at sea under full sail, the African coast, South Africa, Indian Ocean, Coromandel, Bengal, Ceylon, Malabar, Bombay, Middle East (Muscat), Philippines, China, and South America. Pâris started his naval career on the Astrolabe under Dumont d’Urville; he sailed as an officer on thethe Artémise in her final voyage of 1837-1840. This was to be his last voyage too since he lost an arm as a result of a terrible accident. Nonetheless he continued a distinguished naval career. This is a remarkably rare book, not recorded by Cordier, Ferguson, Forbes, Borba de Moraes, Mendelssohn, the Hill Catalogue, Sabin, Judd, or Blackmer. The only bibliographical references we have found for the book are those by Rolf du Rietz (who records a copy in the Kroepelien collection) and O’Reilly-Reitman. This has to be one of the scarcest books relating to the French Grands Voyages. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Paris: N.-P. Lerebours; Bachelier; London: Claudet, 1842. Third edition. 8vo., 77 pp., large folding plate, [1], [16] catalogue. Quarter morocco and marbled board with the moderately soiled original printed wrappers, bound-in. A fine and bright copy. Marc Antoine Augustin Gaudin (1804 - 1880) a skilled French chemist and an early practitioner of the daguerreian process, joined with Noël-Paymal Lerebours (1807 - 1873) an optician and instrument maker, to published this work on an improved daguerreian process: one that made possible shorter exposures and would allow for portraiture. Lerebours lenses and cameras were among the first commercially marketed; it was before the end of 1839 that Lerebours had constructed a large daguerreotype camera, which produced pictures of 12 x 15 (French) inches. Both Gaudin and Lerebours were founding members of the Société Héliographique. First published in January of 1842, but dated 1841 on the title page, the first edition was only 48 pp. in length, with pages 49 - 54 a catalog of Lerebours daguerreian equipment as well as a lengthy advertisement of his publication, EXCURSIONS DAGUERRIENNES. By May of 1842, this manual was in its third iteration with new processes added bringing the manual to 77 pp. Following the folded engraved plate is Lerebours' priced catalogue [16 pp.] of daguerreian apparatus, supplies, publications, and a lengthy advertisement for his EXCURSIONS DAGUERRIENNES.Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, No. 15, listing the first printing.

        DESCRIPTION ET USAGE DE DAGUERRÉOTYPE A PORTRAITS

      Paris: Chez Buron, Ingénieur - Opticien, 1842. First edition. 12mo., 24 pp., 1 engraved plate. Original printed wrappers which show modest staining on the rear, else a fine copy, housed in a paper over boards pamphlet case with printed paper labels. Little seems to be known of Buron; he maintained a business as an optician and engineer on the rue des Trois-Pavillons, Paris. In the early 1840s, portraiture was of a very low quality, given the lenses available which were more suited to landscape photography than portraiture; the lenses needed to be faster and with less distortion for a close subject.In the spring of 1840, the Société d'Encouragement pour l'Industrie Nationale, announced a competition to encourage improvements in the photographic lenses. Among the award winners was Buron, who received a bronze medal for his ingenious portable camera and darkroon, all contained in a single box, weighing approximately 8 1/4 pounds. Two lenses could be used with this camera: one for portraiture and one for landscape. See Gernsheim p. 117. This pamphlet is a manual for making Daguerreotypes; the engraved plate illustrates Buron's portable camera / darkroom. WorldCat locates a single copy at Universiteit Leiden. Roosens and Salu No. 2824. Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, No. 14.

        Catalogue of a Collection of Minerals and Geological Specimens.

      December 1842 - manuscript in ink on paper, 28 leaves, 4to, written on rectos only, a few corrections in ink and pencil, original black paper wrappers, upper fore-edge frayed and spine partly defective, [together with:] a wooden sample tray with some 60 odd samples of minerals, most with tiny printed numbered labels (numbers corresponding to the Catalogue), either loose or in small sample bottle sealed with corks, Listed are 442 items in various categories, usually with a note of the origin of the sample - mainly the British Isles, but also from all over the world - with the occasional note about a particular sample. We are slightly vague about the number since some are fragments only (perhaps broken off). Some 43 are loose, and 13 in tiny sample bottles (there are also 4 empty bottles and 3 loose corks). This is an early example of a Tennant Catalogue. James Tennant, (1808–1881), was 'in October 1824 apprenticed as shop assistant to John Mawe, mineral dealer, of 149 Strand, London. Mawe had been a great traveller and his shop was a resort for men of science from all over the world. Here Tennant gained his acquaintance with minerals. Mawe also sold turned ornamental marbles worked in Derbyshire, business which Tennant continued after Mawe's death.Tennant attended lectures at his mechanics' institute and, later, those given by Michael Faraday at the Royal Institution. Faraday was a Mawe customer; he bought minerals there for use in his experiments. When Mawe died in 1829 his widow, Sarah, maintained the business, with Tennant now as resident manager. In 1838 Tennant was elected a fellow of the Geological Society, and was appointed to assist John Phillips (1800–1874) as lecturer in geological mineralogy at King's College, London, on Faraday's recommendation. 'His class here [became] the largest in the kingdom' (ILN, 12 March 1881). Sarah Mawe had been created mineralogist to Queen Victoria on her accession. In February 1840 Tennant purchased the Mawe business and, on 15 October 1840, he inherited this title. The business lay only three doors from Somerset House, home of the Geological Society of London from 1828 to 1860, which helped to extend his circle of customers. By 1844 Tennant's shop was already"'too well known to require comment" (G. A. Mantell, Medals of Creation, 2.987)' (ODNB). According to the Mineralogical Record, 'although the range of material he offered was notable, he was not an important supplier of individual specimen minerals. Boxed educational sets comprise most of the known Tennant minerals today, the more expensive ones containing excellent specimens. Individually labeled Tennant minerals are very rare, as are Tennant labels in general. A list of the labeled minerals is available on request.

Thomas Frognall Dibdin, English bibliographer, born at Calcutta, was the son of Thomas Dibdin, the sailor brother of Charles Dibdin. Dibdin was orphaned at a young age. His father died in 1778 while returning to England and his mother died one of the following two years, and an elderly maternal aunt eventually assumed responsibility for Dibdin. He was educated at St John's College, Oxford, and studied for a time at Lincoln's Inn. After an unsuccessful attempt to obtain practice as a provincial counsel at Worcester, he was ordained a clergyman at the close of 1804, being appointed to a curacy at Kensington. It was not until 1823 that he received the living of Exning in Sussex. Soon afterwards he was appointed by Lord Liverpool to the rectory of St Mary's, Bryanston Square, which he held until his death. The first of his numerous bibliographical works was his "Introduction to the Knowledge of Editions of the Classics" (1802) , which brought him under the notice of the second Earl Spencer, to whom he owed much important aid in his bibliographical pursuits. The rich library at Althorp was thrown open to him; he spent much of his time in it, and in 1814-1815 published his "Bibliotheca Spenceriana." As the library was not open to the general public, the information given in the Bibliotheca was found very useful, but since its author was unable even to read the characters in which the books he described were written, the work was marred by the errors which more or less characterize all his productions. This fault of inaccuracy however was less obtrusive in his series of playful, discursive works in the form of dialogues on his favourite subject, the first of which, "Bibliomania" (1809) , was republished with large additions in 1811, and was very popular, passing through numerous editions. To the same class belonged the "Bibliographical Decameron," a larger work, which appeared in 1817. In 1810 he began the publication of a new and much extended edition of "Ames's Typographical Antiquities." The first volume was a great success, but the publication was checked by the failure of the fourth volume, and was never completed. In 1818 Dibdin was commissioned by Earl Spencer to purchase books for him on the continent, an expedition described in his sumptuous "Bibliographical, Antiquarian and Picturesque Tour in France and Germany" (1821). In 1824 he made an ambitious venture in his "The Library Companion, or the Young Man's Guide and Old Man's Comfort in the Choice of a Library," intended to point out the best works in all departments of literature. His culture was not broad enough, however, to render him competent for the task, and the work was severely criticized. For some years Dibdin gave himself up chiefly to religious literature. He returned to bibliography in his "Bibliophobia, or Remarks on the Present Depression in the State of Literature and the Book Trade" (1832) , and the same subject furnishes the main interest of his "Reminiscences of a Literary Life" (1836) , and his "Bibliographical, Antiquarian and Picturesque Tour in the Northern Counties of England and Scotland" (1838). Dibdin was the originator and vice-president, Earl Spencer being the president, of the Roxburghe Club, founded in 1812, the first "book club." ; 0 .

      New Edition, with preface and Introduction by W.H.Grattan Flood. Quarto. XXII, 368 pages - including the often missing Corrigenda Leaf (Errata). Original, illustrated Hardcover. Beautifully illustrated clothbinding that has been recently professionally restored. All edges gilt. New endpapers. Besides a 6 cm smudged repair to the front board in excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. A very rare and sought after publication. The Nation was an Irish nationalist weekly newspaper, published in the 19th century. The Nation was printed first at 12 Trinity Street, Dublin from 15 October 1842 until 6 January 1844. The paper was afterwards published at 4 D'Olier Street from 13 July 1844, to 28 July 1848, when the issue for the following day was seized and the paper suppressed. It was published again in Middle Abbey Street on its revival in September 1849. The founders of The Nation were three young men two Catholics and one Protestant who, according to the historian of the newspaper T. F. O'Sullivan, were all "free from the slightest taint of bigotry, and were anxious to unite all creeds and classes for the country's welfare.". They were Charles Gavan Duffy, its first editor Thomas Davis, and John Blake Dillon. All three were members of Daniel O'Connell's Repeal Association, which sought repeal of the disastrous 1800 Act of Union between Ireland and Britain this association would later be known as Young Ireland.The name suggested by Duffy for the paper was The National, but Davis disagreed, suggesting "that the use of an adjective for such a purpose was contrary to the analogies of the English language". He suggested The Nation, which was assented to by all three.. "We desired to make Ireland a nation," Duffy wrote, "and the name would be a fitting prelude to the attempt.". In due course and after many other consultations between the founders, the following announcement was made as to the date of publication, the name of the journal, and the contributors:.On the first Saturday in October will be published the first number of a DUBLIN WEEKLY JOURNAL TO BE CALLED THE NATION, for which the services of the most eminent political writers in the country have been secured. It will be edited by Charles Gavan Duffy, Editor of The Vindicator, aided by the, following distinguished contributors: JOHN O'CONNELL, ESQ., M.P. Thomas Osborne Davis, Esq., Barrister-at-Law W. J. O'Neill Daunt, Esq., Author of The Green Book, John B. Dillon, Esq., Barrister-at-Law Clarence Mangan, Esq., Author of Anthologia Germanica and Litterae Orientales The Late Editor of the London Magazine and Charivari, J. C. Fitzgerald, Editor of The True Sun, And others whose names we are not at liberty to publish. The paper was first published on Saturday 15th October 1842. (Wikipedia)

        Polled Angus Breed

      London: [Wilson & Ogilvie for] Longman, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1842. Hand-coloured lithograph by Fairland from a drawing by William Nicholson, after a painting by William Shiels. Very good condition. A beautiful and carefully observed portrait of one of the most historically important breeds of cow, from David Low's "The Breeds of the Domestic Animals of the British Islands," a famous pioneering work illustrating the forerunners of all of today's most important breeds of horses, cows, sheep and pigs. David Low, professor of Agriculture at Edinburgh University, produced these beautiful lithographs as a reference for those interested in the infant science of selective breeding. He was concerned that the majority of farmers or breeders did not understand the relatively simple concept of matching a breed to its environment to improve its productivity. With the help of a government grant from Earl Spencer, Low set up the agricultural museum in Edinburgh. The artist William Shiels of the Royal Scottish Academy was commissioned to produce a series of paintings of all the significant breeds of economic significance in Great Britain at the time. These paintings were then used as the basis for Low's important work. Cf. BM(NH) III, p.1184; cf. Mellon, Books on the Horse and Horsemanship, 168; cf. Nissen, ZBI, 2564; cf. Wood, p.442.
