        Two issues of the newspaper "Te Waka Maori"].Grisborne, James Grindell, 1878. 2 loose issues. Folio. With a wood engraving of a Maori war-canoe incorporating the name of the newspaper, on top of issue no. 13. No. 2 in loose folded sheets, no. 13 glued in the gutter.

      - Hocken, p. 544; Williams 554; cf. Curnow e.a., "Rere Atu, Taku Manu! Discovering history, language, and politics in the Maori-language newspapers" (1842-1933). Two issues of the Maori newspaper Te Waka Maori ("the Maori canoe") from 4 September 1878 (no. 2) and 21 December 1878 (no. 13). This bilingual publication was an intent to revive the old Waka Maori which had ceased to exist in July 1877. After the fifth number "o Niu Tirani" ("of New Zealand") was removed from the title and replaced with an image of a Maori war-canoe and the caption "Hoea te Waka, ha!" ("paddle the canoe"). Only 42 issues were published of this short lived newspaper and in 1884 a further attempt was made to revive the paper.Included in no. 2 is an article on the final words of George Selwyn (1809-1878), who as bishop of Auckland was very active in converting the Maori and who is supposed to have said "E marama ana (It is light), an expression which he had often heard from the lips of dying Maories" (p. 23). A political article in no. 13, advocates the right of "Native women" owning land, to keep their possessions even after their marriage. This to avoid them losing their inheritance "through being married to spendthrift or drunken husband[s]" (p. 192).From the library of the New Zealand ornithologist Arthur Thomas Pycroft (1875-1911). Both issues in fair condition, with a horizontal fold in the middle; paper browned, spotted and with small tears near the edges. No. 2 with some tears in the inner folds, notably on the outside sheet; no. 13 with a strip of woven paper glued as an outer binding and with some holes in the pages, leading to slight loss of text.

        LE GRAND CHEMIN DE LA POSTÉRITÉ : 3 panneaux (les gens de lettres, les genres dramatiques et les artistes lyriques)

      3 lithographies panoramiques Paris, Aubert et Arnaud de Vresse [Imprimerie Roche], [1842 et 1853-1870], , 3 lithographies panoramiques en couleurs, montées chacune en 2 parties [27 x 71 cm] dans un encadrement double, sous verre, cadres de bois pitchpin [153 x 27 cm], Très rare ensemble complet des tableaux lithographiés du "Grand chemin de la postérité", fameux "panthéon charivarique" panoramique, dont la première publication avait été donnée feuille à feuille (6 feuilles par panneau) dans la célèbre revue de Charles Philipon, de 1839 à 1841. Benjamin y a caricaturé les personnalités les plus éminentes de l'univers des arts et des lettres de son temps : tout ce petit monde du spectacle et de la littérature romantiques, auteurs, acteurs et chanteurs, défile le long de 3 grandes frises. Premier tirage de la planche des artistes lyriques, à l'adresse d'Aubert, 29 place de la Bourse et nouveau tirage pour les 2 autres planches, publiées à l'adresse d'Arnaud de Vresse (55 rue de Rivoli), successeur d'Aubert, actif à son propre compte de 1853 à 1870 ; les planches de de Vresse sont en coloris d'époque. Benjamin Roubaud (1811-1847), peintre, lithographe et caricaturiste, fut, avec Daumier, Grandville et Cham l'un des piliers du Charivari. Il s'installa en Algérie vers 1843 comme correspondant de l'Illustration. 1. La planche la plus célèbre figure l'Armée Romantique menée par Victor Hugo comme "roi des Hugolâtres", c'est-à-dire comme chef de file du mauvais goût, chevauchant un pégase à queue de dragon en brandissant une bannière sur laquelle est inscrite : "Le laid c'est le beau". Sur la queue de sa monture sont assis, à sa suite, Théophile Gautier, Cassagnac, Francis Wey et Paul Fouché. A grande enjambées, Alexandre Dumas tente de les rattraper, tandis que Eugène Sue essaye de grimper derrière eux et que Lamartine, égaré dans des nuées, est "livré à ses méditations politiques, poétiques et catholiques". Enfin, sur une voiture à vapeur, Eugène Scribe transporte ses collaborateurs et devance de nombreux écrivains parmi lesquels Balzac, Jules Janin, Paul de Kock, Charles Desnoyer, etc... Les deux autres panneaux sont de la plus grande rareté : 2. La frise des genres dramatiques représente les comédiens en vogue, en 6 tableaux : la Tragédie, la comédie, le drame, le mélodrame, le cirque-Olympique et les Champs-Elysées. 3. La planche de l'univers des spectacles parisiens, figure les artiste lyriques du Grand Opéra, du corps de ballet, avec son "rassemblement de rats de toute espèce et à tout prix, même au rabais", des Italiens, de l'Opéra-comique, des Variétés, du Palais-Royal perruqué à l'ancienne, du théâtre de M. et Mme Ancelot et du Gymnase. Superbe ensemble présenté dans des encadrements pitchpin d'époque : chaque panneau est partagé en deux par une baquette de bois centrale. Des petites rousseurs sur la planche 3, aux très beaux coloris modernes.

        Traité de cristallographie

      XV-208 pages, 12 planches Paris, Bachelier, 1842, in-8, XV-208 pages, 12 planches dépliantes représentant des structures de cristaux. Exemplaire interfolié, broché, couverture factice, titre manuscrit en tête du dos, double emboîtage moderne, Première édition française, traduite par le minéralogiste Henri Hureau de Senarmont (1808-1862), de A Treatise on Crystallography de William Hallowes Miller (1801-1880). Exemplaire personnel du traducteur, comprenant un envoi autographe de l'auteur à son adresse, rédigé en deuxième de couverture (envoi masqué par un papier de garde contrecollé ultérieurement par dessus). Il provient de la collection du minéralogiste et chimiste Charles Friedel (1832-1899). Entièrement interfolié et très abondamment annoté par les deux spécialistes. L'un d'eux, probablement Friedel, a placé une note en tête d'ouvrage : "exemplaire interfolié, avec des corrections et des annotations dont plusieurs pourraient trouver place dans une seconde édition". On distingue trois encres (rouge, turquoise et brune), une mine de plomb, ainsi que deux écritures ; l'une est probablement de Sernamont, l'autre de Charles Friedel. L'encre rouge semble être la plus ancienne : elle est concentrée sur le texte imprimé et concerne des fautes ponctuelles. Ces corrections sont parfois reprises à l'encre brune ou biffées en turquoise avec un nouveau texte sur le feuillet interfolié. Les ajouts sur les feuillets interfoliés sont de plus en plus conséquents, au fur et à mesure que l'on avance dans l'ouvrage. Il reste cependant difficile d'attribuer distinctement les notes à une main plus qu'à une autre. Cet exemplaire exceptionnel pourrait donner lieu, encore aujourd'hui, à une nouvelle édition de ce grand texte de la cristallographie. L'ouvrage, publié en anglais en 1839, ne connut pas d'autre édition. Miller (1801-1880) en publia un abrégé, A tract on crystallography, en 1863.

Bailly de Lalonde, fervent catholique, était membre de l'Institut historique et correspondant de l'académie royale de Caen. "Voici un vrai voyageur qui a publié ses remarques sur Genève et le canton de Vaud, en Suisse, qu'il a pris soin de visiter avec une attention scrupuleuse. Ce n'est pas dans son cabinet, une carte géographique sur la tables, et quelque compilation sous les yeux, que l'imagination de M. Lalonde s'est mis à voir du pays. L'auteur a consacré cinq années d travail à parfaire son livre" (La France, 7 novembre 1842). Au cours de ses pérégrinations, l'auteur prit le temps de consulter quelques manuscrits, dont plusieurs de la main de Jean-Jacques Rousseau, conservés dans la collection du docteur Charles Coindet (1796-1876), neveu de François Coindet, ami genevois du philosophe des Lumières. Bel exemplaire malgré des rousseurs, dont quelques unes assez intenses sur certains feuillets du tome I.

        Traité des maladies des femmes, qui déterminent des flueurs-blanches, des leucorrhées, ou tout autre écoulement utéro-vaginal

      (4), 632pp. Paris & Clermont-Ferrand, Germer-Baillière & Veysset, 1842, in-8, (4), 632pp, demi-veau brun, dos plat orné d'un large motif doré. (Rel. de l'ép.), Première édition de ce traité des maladies des femmes écrit par Henri Blatin (1809-1869), médecin de Clermont-Ferrand, un des fondateurs de la SPA (cf. DBF, VI, 651) et par Vincent Nivet (1809-1893), également médecin dans le Puy de Dôme. Les auteurs ont pour but d'étudier principalement la leucorrhé, soit l'écoulement non sanglant provenant de l'appareil génital féminin ; ainsi bien que les auteurs aient d'abord voulu s'arrêter à une pathologie spéciale en étudiant ce symptôme particulier, l'ouvrage a tendance à s'élargir à une pathologie plus générale, et donc moins précise. Bel exemplaire de cette intéressante étude.

        Witness to the Battle of Chinkiang by British Surgeon William Gingell

      CHINA, 1842 - 1843: Chusan [Zhoushan], Golden Island in Chinkiang [Zhenjiang], Ningpo [Ningbo], Nanking [Nanjing], Chin Hai [Zhenhai]. Manuscript diary of William Raymond Gingell (1816-1863), a notable surgeon for the East India Company, describing his arrival in China during the First Opium War, his firsthand account of the Battle of Chinkiang and other war scenes, as well as post-war life in China as he settled there. The writer would live the remainder of his years in China, becoming a consular interpreter, then Consul at Amoy [Xiamen], and Consul at Hankow [Hankou]. The diary spans three years from 1 January 1841 to 31 December 1843, the latter nineteen months (91 pages) being penned in China. Previous to that, the writer was in Madras. 8vo. 343 pages. Burgundy calf boards, blue marbled endpapers, original bookbinder's label to front pastedown (R. Birchall Stationer, at 8 Poultry, London). William Raymond Gingell (1816-1863), was a surgeon for the British East India Company, translator of Chinese texts and author of works on Chinese custom, consular interpreter, and British Consul in China. Among other notable events, a most vivid and enthusiastic firsthand description of the Battle of Chinkiang unfolds in this rare primary source account of the First Opium War, penned by a participant and survivor as he sailed on the Yangtse River and along the China Sea coast to provide medical aid. Best remembered for his skillful translations of Chinese text, the author of this diary, Dr. William Raymond Gingell (1816-1863), was a surgeon by trade, and sent to Madras, then to China, by the East India Company. Ninety-one pages of this journal are devoted to the first nineteen months he spent in China. The diary begins 1 January 1840, as he prepares for his first appointment, in Madras, India, where he would serve for over one year. Prior to his departure from India, while in Madras, on the 1st of January 1842, he contemplates his upcoming voyage to China, feeling none too enthusiastic about his fate considering the intense war raging through the nation. On 28 March he boards the 'Amelia Thomson' deeming himself a martyr, and not knowing at the time that China is where he would spend the remainder of his life. [The ships Rohomany, John Fleming, and Amelia Thomson, departed together from Madras that day for Singapore and China. The writer also sails on the Rohomany later along the Yangtse River.] Gingell lands at Hong Kong on 4 June 1842, during the First Opium War (1839-1842), only 8 weeks before the signing of the Treaty of Nanking which ceded Hong Kong island "in perpetuity" to Britain. After acquiring the necessary papers and such, in about one week he proceeds to Amoy [Xiamen] on a frigate, passing Formosa [Taiwan] on the 12th. As expected, Gringell soon finds himself in the throes of war. Amidst intense fighting, he sailed on the Yangtse River between Ningbo and Nanjing, witnessing, from uncomfortably close proximity, a decisive battle at Golden Island off the Yangtse River, which would come to be known as the Battle of Chinkiang. This was to be the last major battle of the war, resulting in the Daoguang Emperor's decision to sue for peace and to sign the Treaty of Nanking. While at Zhoushan, he receives news about British forces capturing the towns Woosung and Baoshan, which had taken place only one week earlier. [The Battle of Woosung was fought between British and Chinese forces at the entrance of the Woosung River (present-day Huangpu River), Jiangsu province, China, on 16 June 1842 during the First Opium War. The British capture of the towns of Woosung (Wusong) and Baoshan opened the way to Shanghai, which was captured with little resistance on 19 June.] He makes frequent mention of the 55th (Westmorland) Regiment of Foot, as he dines at the mess, stays in their quarters, evidently providing medical support to them. [The 55th (Westmorland) Regiment of Foot was deployed to China in 1841 for service in the First Opium War. It was selected as part of the expeditionary force that moved north from Hong Kong and participated in the Battle of Amoy in August 1841. The regiment was the first to land when British forces disembarked from boats at the Capture of Chusan on 1 October 1841. Ten days later, at the Battle of Chinhai the 55th was again part of the force that engaged Qing troops, remaining there until year's end.] After the war he begins acclimatizing himself to his new life in China. In January 1843, Gringell proceeds to Ningpo where he would settle for some time. Several notable names appear in his diary jottings, including military Generals, R.B. Jackson, HM Consul at Foochow, and the like. [Ningbo was one of the five Chinese treaty ports opened by the Treaty of Nanjing which was signed 29 August 1842 at the end of the First Opium War. During the war, three days after the British captured Chinhai (Zhenhai) on 10 October 1841, they captured the nearby city of Ningpo without opposition. On 10 March 1842, the Battle of Ningpo ensued, the Chinese having dispatched Manchu Prince Yijing and his Manchu Bannermen to attempt to retake the city. Tricked into thinking the British had abandoned the city, the Chinese rushed in, only to find mines laid in the streets. The Chinese retreated but were ambushed by the British who achieved a decisive victory.] As well as performing medical services, he enjoys shooting, learning Chinese, writing home, and reminiscing about his time in Madras, although he is pleased to have left India for China. He writes of the occasion which sparked his career as an interpreter, and ultimately a translator of certain Chinese books, including an atlas. With foreshadows into his life-long success in China, the journal's final entry is made 31 December 1843. Excerpts from the diary: 1 January 1842. "... China... will receive me, I hope.

William Raymond Gingell (1816-1863) was a surgeon for the British East India Company, serving in India and in China, where he would learn the language so proficiently as to become a consular interpreter. He wrote many papers on Chinese customs, and translated Chinese books. In his later years, he served as Consul at Amoy and at Hankow. Following in the footsteps of his father Daniel Gingell, and his elder brother, who were both also physicians, he studied medicine at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, qualifying in 1839. Also like his father before him, he was a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. In January 1840, having studied the necessary Indian languages, he went to Madras as a surgeon for the East India Company. After 2 years, he was transferred to China, arriving there during the final battles of the First Opium War. He learned the language and was appointed an interpreter. Later, he published two books of translations of classic Chinese texts. In a preface, his teacher, Lin Kow Hwaie, tells of his extraordinary and unusual gifts as a linguist. Examples of his Chinese script are in the archives at Kew. An excellent linguist, in the early 1850s, he was made Interpreter to the British Consulate in Amoy. In 1855 he married Fanny Sullivan, the widow of the Consul at Amoy (Xiamen), who had died a few years earlier. They had no children. For a short period in 1857 he was Consul at Bangkok, during which time King Mongkut presented Mrs Gingell with a brooch. In 1859 he was appointed Consul at Amoy [Xiamen]. In 1861 he was appointed Consul at Hankow, from where he wrote letters describing the dangers from flood and rebel activity, as well as the difficulties of setting up his home and office. In March 1863 he wrote to Lord Bruce, the Chief Superintendent, requesting permission to return home because of his poor health. This was refused. In August he made a second request, but two days later he died, aged only 46. His memorial in St Mary's Church, Thornbury is inscribed with Chinese characters, which mean 'Waiting, Watching, Longing'. In 1850, Gingell was involved in the Shen-kuang-szu Incident, one of the earliest conflicts between local Chinese and foreign Protestant missionaries. When CMS missionaries, Robert David Jackson and William Welton brought with them a letter from the bishop of Hong Kong to the Consul in June 1850, expressing their desire to reside within the city, Dr. William Raymond Gingell, who was the then consular interpreter in Fuzhou, provided assistance. Having formerly been informed about the availability of a temple on Wu-shih-shan called Shen-kuang-szu, Gingell arranged a meeting with the county magistrate Xinglian to discuss its rental opportunities. Without putting much detailed thought into the matter, Xinglian placed his seal on the agreement. The Chinese, however, were not pleased with the outcome of the meeting, protesting that foreigners other than consular officers should not be permitted to reside within the walled city. Two days after the conclusion of the rental agreement, Gingell began receiving urgent communications from Xinglian and other Chinese officials requesting to undo the rental agreement at Shen-kuang-szu. Gingell refused, taking the position that foreigners had the Treaty rights to reside within the city, and that the magistrate himself had already placed his seal on the agreement.

        The Regal and Ecclesiastical Antiquities of England: Containing the Representations of All the English Monarchs, From Edward the Confessor to Henry the Eighth; On Sixty Copper Plates, Engraved by the Author. by J.R. Planché

      Henry G. Bohn, London 1842 - Pp. 1 p.l., iv, 152. With 72 skilfully-executed hand-coloured copper engravings (including frontispiece) with protective paper guards. Bound in contemporary half morocco over marbled boards, with double gilt rules on sides, and gilt lettering on a flat spine framed by a double gilt border. Two small modern bookplates on pastedown. With only minor rubbing to extremities, overall a nearly fine copy of a splendidly illustrated, attractively bound book. First published in 1773, with a supplement of 12 plates added in 1793, this new edition of "The Regal and Ecclesiastical Antiquities of England" adds critical notes by the eminent antiquary, James Robinson Planché [1796-1880]. This was the first of Strutt's many great antiquarian works illustrated with his own engravings. The author/engraver "spent the greater part of his life in similar labours, his art becoming little more than a handmaid to his antiquarian and literary researches. Strutt's work as an engraver. is of exceptional merit and is still highly esteemed. In the study of those branches of archaeology which he followed he was a pioneer, and all later works on the same lines has been built on the foundations he laid." (DNB XIX p. 66). Lowndes V 25 32.

Quant à Joinville (François Prince de) et Aumale (Henri Duc d'), ils doivent aller à Londres rejoindre le Roi Léopold 1er Roi de Belgique. Quelques semaines plus tard, en rentrant à Neuilly, le Prince de Joinville se tuera en sautant de sa voiture dont les chevaux s'étaient emportés. 3 pages et 1/4, in-4° sur papier fort, pliures usagées, jointes ou renforcée par trois petits morceaux de papier collés en marge. Une carte de visite laissée entre les pages 3 et 4 de la lettre en a très légèrement jauni la partie basse de celles-ci. Fils de Louis-Philippe Joseph duc d'Orléans, dit Philippe Egalité, et de Louise Marie Adélaïde de Bourbon-Penthièvre, il épousa en 1809 la fille de son cousin, le Roi Ferdinand 1er (Roi des Deux-Siciles), Marie-Amélie. Le château de Bizy est une ancienne demeure royale, on le surnommait sous Louis XV, le Versailles normand. Il est situé à Vernon, entre Paris et Rouen. Louis philippe en a hérité de sa mère. Le domaine de Randan, près de Riom (Puy de Dôme), appartenait depuis la fin du XVIIIème siècle à la famille d' Orléans, précisément à la Princesse Adélaïde, mère de Louis Philippe qui l'avait considérablement développé et embelli.

      1842. 1 S. Kl.-4to. "Kissingen's Quellen wirken erregend auf's Gefäßsystem; der Marienbader-Kreuzbrunn[en] ist das sanfteste und vorzüglichste Mittel gegen Hämorrhoidal-Leiden. Da nun der betreffende Patient, wenigstens so lange ich ihn beobachtete, ohnehin an Gefäß-Aufregung (Blutwallungen) litt, und Hämorrhoiden die Quelle des Uebels waren, so ist: Kissingen unpassend, dagegen: Der Marienbader-Kreuzbrunnen sehr zweckmäßig [...]".

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)

        Linda di Chamounix Melodramma in tre atti di G. Rossi Posto in musica ed umilmente dedicato a Sua Maestà Maria Anna Carolina Imperatrice d'Austria, Regina di Boemia, ecc., ecc., ecc... Riduzione per canto con accompo. di pianoforte del Mo. P. Tonassi. [Piano-vocal score]

      Milano: Ricordi [PNs 13931-55], 1842. Second edition (first Italian edition), published just months after the first edition published in Vienna in May of 1842. Bergamo catalogue 46. Inzaghi IN. 73, p. 192. Crawford pp. 146-7 (incorrectly describing this as the first edition). A melodramma semiserio in three acts to a libretto by Gaetano Rossi after Adolphe-Philippe d'Ennery and Gustave Lemoine's play La grace de Dieu, Linda di Chamounix was first performed in Vienna at the Kartnerthortheater on May 19, 1842. "The score of Linda is a monument to Donizetti's unfailing good taste, from the finely crafted overture to the final ensemble... Along with Bellini, Donizetti epitomized the Italian Romantic spirit of the 1830s... If Bellini expressed Italian Romanticism in its most concentrated form, Donizetti compensated by a greater versatility and resource and a stronger feeling for dramatic movement. He also had the benefit of a more thorough musical training under Mayr and Mattei, and this contributed much to his superior fluency of technique and invention." TNG II online.. Oblong folio. Contemporary dark blue cloth with decorative blindstamping, gilt rules to edges and spine, "E.P. Mavromihali" stamped in gilt to upper. 1f.
