[Puerto Rico]: [Slavery]
Guayama, Puerto Rico, 1843. [1]p. Single quarto sheet. Old folds, a few short closed tears, minor wrinkling. About very good. A record of a slave sale in Puerto Rico during the late-Spanish colonial period. The document records various expenditures for "Senora Dna Yrma de Gott" for the spring and summer of 1843. Along with other expenditures from April to July 1843, the present manuscript document includes a line item from March 30 reading, "recibido de Antonini por el negro Alfred." Apparently the señora received 200 Spanish dollars or pesos for Alfred, the slave. The Spanish brought slavery to the island of Puerto Rico during the early colonial period. Slave labor fueled sugar production on the island, reaching its peak in the early-to-mid 19th century. Slavery was finally abolished in Puerto Rico 1873, after years of slave revolts against Spanish colonial rule which began in 1868. Despite its long history of slavery, records of slave sales from Puerto Rico are rarely encountered in the market.

SHELLEY, Percy Bysshe]
[London]: (Reprinted for Thomas Rudd) [c.1843]. First edition, 8vo, 16 pp. First and last page evenly browned, some mild chipping to edges. Sewn as issued, a very good example of a fragile item. With a title taken from Thomas Paine's "The Rights of Man", Shelley contrasts the public reaction to the death of Princess Charlotte to the fate of the Pentrich Martyrs in Derbyshire, hanged for treason following an uprising inspired by a government agent. Originally advertised by Rudd as a facsimile reprint of an edition published in only 20 copies in 1816, though no examples of that work exist, and there are no mentions of it in any correspondence. Wise concludes that the story was most likely invented to avoid suspicion as to the manuscript source of the work, concluding "one thing is certain. that had Shelley printed such a pamphlet he would not have restricted it to twenty copies."

1843. THE REAL THING Offered for sale an original 1st edn of Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol in its original covers* *There are offered for sale, including on various search engines 1st editions of Christmas Carol and listed as being in good condition. Often such copies have been rebound or rebacked with new covers commonly in morocco and so replacing the original red/brown vertically ribbed cloth with blind stamped gold lettering. There is a general consensus among collectors that any book needing repair should be carried out with the minimum of new material, that the book should remain as near original as possible, or practical. Occasionaly a wholesale replacement of covers and spine may be necessary to save a substantially degraded book , Often though thoughtless wholesale replacement is not neccessary but is nevertheless carried out because it is ' easier ' than to repair and with the highly questionable presumption that a pristine or perfect volume with substantial new material is more desirable, more worthy than original albeit with some defects.Such subtantially restored copies often command a price comparable or higher than an original with flaws which is an equally questionable summise.** ** It is suggested that to keep to the original covers is especially true of Dickens Christmas Carol. Dickens desire at the time of publishing was that the book should, as well as being an enjoyable read , also be ' a beautiful gift'. The original red/ brown vertically ribbed cloth covers, are, it is suggested, an important and essential characteristic of the book. Rebou … [Click Below for Full Description]

LOVELACE, Lady Ada Augusta [MENABREA, Luigi]
Richard & John E. Taylor, London, 1843. First edition, journal issue, of the best contemporary description of Babbage's Analytical Engine, the first programmable (mechanical) computer. It is a translation by Lovelace of a report by Menabrea of a series of lectures given by Babbage while he was in Turin. Lovelace added seven explanatory notes; as a result, the translation is three times as long as the original. Two of these notes are essentially programs for the Analytical Engine; their inclusion has given rise to the claim that Lovelace was the first computer programmer. "In the fall if 1841, after eight years of work, Babbage described his landmark Analytical Engine at a seminar in Turin. Although the Engine was never constructed, there is no doubt that in conception and design, it embodied all of the essential elements of what is recognized today as a general-purpose digital computer. L.F. Menabrea, an Italian military engineer who attended the seminar, reported the presentation the following year in an obscure Swiss serial, and Babbage urged Ada Lovelace to translate the report into English. In fact, Lovelace undertook a far larger task: adding to her translation a series of important explanatory 'Notes' substantially longer than Menabrea's article" (Grolier Extraordinary Women, p. 122). The collaboration "between Byron's celebrity daughter and Babbage is one of the more unusual in the history of science . Ada's translation of Menabrea's paper, with its lengthy explanatory notes, represents the most complete contemporary account in English of the intended design and oper … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wagner-Camp’s notes on this expedition: “Lang and Taylor were members of the Society of Friends who visited the Indians recently removed from east of the Mississippi to the trans-Mississippi regions. Their report was presented to the Yearly Meeting of the Friends of New England and New York before being published under the above title . They visited the Winnebagoes, Shawnees, Kickapoos, Delawares, Kansas, Osages, Cherokees, and Choctaws, between August and December 1842” This report is unquestionably one of the best and most authentic accounts of first-hand observations of the Cherokee and other notable American Indian tribes.

PALMER, J. C.
New York Published by Samuel Colman, 1843. First edition. 8vo. Publisher's navy blue cloth, with gilt stamped decoration and lettering to the upper cover and spine, with further decoration and rules in blind. An author's presentation copy, inscribed by Palmer "To Dr Wm. W. Baynes, Surgeon R.N., with the compliments of his friend J C Palmer. U.S. Ship St. Mary's. December 18 1845." A very good copy indeed, with a couple of small splashes to the boards and generally a very clean and bright example of an uncommon book. Woodcut frontispiece, two full-page woodcuts and nine further woodcuts as head- and tailpieces and vignettes. A most uncommon account - in the form of two epic poems - of the United States Exploring Expedition of 1838-42. It is the only surviving account of the USS Flying Fish from the expedition, and also constitutes the earliest published Antarctic poetry. Palmer explains in his preface that "the following Poem is a true story of the incidents more minutely detailed in the Appendix, to which the reader is referred for a narrative prepared from the journals of the 'Flying-Fish'. It unfortunately happened that all these journals, which had been collected on board the U. S. Ship Peacock, were lost with that vessel, at the mouth of the Columbia; so that the account which I wrote only for the gratification of a few friends, has become the sole remaining history of a highly interesting adventure." Inscribed copies are most uncommon in commerce.

A complete run of this fugitive periodical with bawdy and satirical songs and verse in Liégeois, the most curious dialect of Walloon.

Picard (1819-79) and J.-J. Pinsar (1783-1853) - were all Liège natives and founding members of Liège Society for Wallon Literature (est. 1856).

DAVIDSON, C. J. C.
London: Henry Colburn, 1843. 2 volumes, octavo. Original reddish-brown vertical rib cloth, gilt-lettered spines with decorative blind banding, sides with a border of paired blind fillets enclosing a central arabesque block, pale primrose yellow-coated endpapers. Neat ownership inscription to front free endpapers, "Debonnaire F. McInroy, 1898". Spines lightly sunned and skillfully refurbished at head and tail, a couple of corners slightly rumpled, a few old pale stains to covers, yet this remains a remarkably attractive copy in the original cloth. First edition of this elusive, entertaining and informal account of northern India in the 1830s, presented here in bright examples of the original cloth bindings. A rather exasperated John F. Riddick remarks that "Lieutenant-Colonel Davidson's travel diary represents more of a pleasant diversion than a meaningful statement of what he saw", going on to note that his narrative "attempts any number of light-hearted remarks on subjects ranging from elephant riding to nautch girls. His tale asserts that tomato sauce improved every edible other than cranberry tart and apple pie. In momentary lapses of seriousness, Davidson absorbed the impression that the European was essentially a hated figure by both the Hindu and the Mohammedan" (Glimpses of India: An Annotated Bibliography of Published Writings by Englishmen, 1583-1947). Czech remarks that Davidson "provides a long section on sport in Oudh He hunted tiger, encountered wild elephant, and bagged wild boar, in addition to a variety of deer species".

[AUTOGRAPH]. BAUDIN, Charles.
[Collection of 14 signed, mostly autograph letters].Toulon, 1842-1849. 8vo and 4to. Letters in black and brown ink on paper (11 with the "prefecture maritime" letterhead), 1 with its original envelope and 3 originally folded, addressed and sealed for posting without an envelope. Collection of 14 signed letters, all but 3 autographs, written by Charles Baudin (1792-1854) and dated 1842-1849, when he served as Maritime Prefect at Toulon. He was one of the leading naval figures of the 19th century, whose naval service, mostly as Vice Admiral, began under Napoleon Bonaparte and ended in the early days of the Second Empire. Charles Baudin lost his right arm in battle in 1808 and had to write with his left hand, leading to the distinctive back-sloped handwriting evident in his signature and the 10 autograph letters. All letters are in good or very good condition. Letters 4, 7 and 14 are very slightly browned and 14 also shows some small stains. Letter 2 has a corner torn off and a small hole (neither affecting the text). A valuable primary source for French naval affairs in the last decade of Louis Philippe I's reign. For Charles Baudin: Howgego, 1800-1850, B16 (see also B17).

Large 8vo (24 x 14 cm). Later half calf. 1451, [1 blank] pp. Second edition of the entire Bible in the Hawaiian language, but the first edition (in octavo) to be published in a single volume. The translation, a joint effort of American missionaries and Hawaiian advisers, was a monumental work of language and scholarship. "Neither of the two very different groups of people who produced the Baibala - the missionary scholars working with ancient texts and the Hawaiian chiefs and advisors, guardians of a millennium of traditional Kanaka learning - could have produced even a pedestrian Bible translation on their own. Together, through over a decade of incessant and mostly fruitful labor and cooperation, they created a work for the ages, among the best Bible translations of their century, and an enduring literary monument today" (Lyon).The first gospels in the Hawaiian language were printed in 1827-1828, ultimately leading to a complete translation of the New Testament in 1835, which was revised in 1837. The first translation of the Old Testament was published in 1838 and, together with the 1837 New Testament incorporated in a complete edition of the Bible in three volumes. In 1843 these texts were reprinted, with several mistakes corrected, in a more compact version and then bound togeth … [Click Below for Full Description]

[AFRICAN AMERICANA] [SLAVERY & ABOLITION] [ABOLITION - WOMEN AUTHORS] TAYLOR, Emily
[Liverpool: 1843]. Ephemera. English poet and hymnist Emily Taylor (1795-1872), was the author of more than twenty books, including the book-length anti-slavery poem The Vision of Las Casas (1825). Though best-known as an author of historical works for children, she was also a prolific hymnist, contributing more than a dozen works to various Unitarian hymnals in the first decades of the 19th century (possibly providing her connection to Follen, also a well-known hymnist). The present letter is addressed to the prominent abolitionist author Eliza Lee Follen of Boston, and opens: "My dear Madam, Our mutual friend Harriet Martineau assures me of a kind reception from you, and accordingly, I transcribe for you a few lines written immediately on reading your Liberty Bell for 1843. If you are to enroll my name among those which I hold so holy & dear as your contributors in the Abolition cause, please to accept them..." The substantial (67-line) poem which follows begins with the prologue: "To a friend, who asked the author's aid and prayers for the slave;" and continues: "Pity & prayers and pleading for the Slaves! / Them thou didst ask, and soon as ask'd, I gave..." The poem goes on to extend the by-then familiar argument that the institution of slavery makes slaves not only of its subjects but of its perpetrators as well. Taylor concludes as a postscript on the final leaf: "Would you, dear Mrs. Follen, forward the enclosed to Mrs. Chapman [Maria Weston Chapman, editor of The Liberty Bell ]...I am sorry, but do not know Mrs. C's address."
