        The Works of Jeremy Bentham, 11 volumes, Complete Set

      1843. Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham Bentham, Jeremy [1748-1832]. Bowring, John [1792-1872], Editor. The Works of Jeremy Bentham. Edinburgh: William Tait/London: Simpkin, Marshall, & Co., 1843. Eleven volumes. Complete set. Main text in parallel columns. Folding plates. Folding tables. Octavo (8-3/4" x 5-1/2"). Later buckram, lettering pieces to spines, marbled edges. Some rubbing to extremities, a few hinges starting, some volumes have a few cracks in their text blocks, front endleaf in Volume I detached. Moderate toning to text, internally clean. Ex-law office library. Small inkstamps to front pastedowns of earch volume. A nice set. * First edition of the the first, and still definitive, collected edition of Bentham's works. His influence on jurisprudence has been immense, directly resulting in the substitution of reason and utility for other justifications of law. As Walker notes, his "works have had great practical influence in subsequent legislation, and have great impulse to such projects as codification, consolidation of statutes, and the abolition of antiquated and arbitrary rules." The set contains all of Bentham's published writings, a useful "Introduction to the study of Bentham" by J.H. Burton and an excellent analytical index volume. Walker, Oxford Companion to Law 125. Catalogue of the Library of the Harvard Law School I:158.

        [NATURAL HISTORY OF NEW YORK. PART III, MINERALOGY, AND PART IV, GEOLOGY]

      Albany, 1843. Later brown cloth, matching leather labels. Very good. The New York Natural History and Geological Survey was one of the most ambitious scientific projects of the antebellum United States. Begun in 1836, the Survey published the NATURAL HISTORY OF NEW YORK in thirty volumes between 1842 and 1894, in six sections: Zoology (five volumes), Botany (two volumes), Mineralogy (one volume), Geology (four volumes), Agriculture (five volumes), and Paleontology (thirteen volumes). The present set comprises the entire Mineralogy and Geology sections, uniformly bound. The mineralogy section was compiled by Lewis C. Beck, and describes all minerals found in the state. The ambitious geology survey was divided into four volumes, arranged geographically, covering the state from east to west. Each section had a different editor, and respective volumes were under the direction of William W. Mather, Ebenezer Emmons, Lardner Vanuxem, and James Hall. Numerous plates and illustrations adorned the volumes, most notably forty-two folding handcolored lithographed plates in Mather's volume. At the time of publication, these were the most extensive geological surveys published in the United States, and they served as models for the great United States surveys, such as the Railroad Surveys, in the next decade.

        History of the Priesthood from the Beginning of the World to the Present Time, Written in Defense of the Doctrine and Position of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; and also a brief treatise upon the fundamental sentiments, particularly those which distinguish the above society from others now extant

      Philadelphia: Brown, Bicking & Guilbert, Printers, 1843. First edition. Leather bound. 168pp. Vegisemo-Quarto (24mo) [14 cm] Original 3/4 calf over marbled boards with bands and 'The Priesthood' gilt stamped on backstrip. Marbled boards and corners rubbed. Name in ink on the front pastedown. Tape repair to final leaf of text. A nice copy of this scarce work in original binding. According to Crawley: "History of the Priesthood marks another step in Mormon apologetics...The first three chapters discuss the concept of priesthood, its possession by Adam and Abraham, God's Covenant with Abraham, and the history of the priesthood to Jethro and Moses. The next three chapters examine what Winchester claims was the apostate condition of the Jews at the time of Christ...The final chapter, reworked from his articles in the Gospel Reflector outlines the history and contents of the Book of Mormon. Benjamin Winchester was an early leader in the LDS Church. "[Benjamin Winchester] moved to Kirtland in the fall of 1833, and joined Zion's Camp (Winchester was the youngest adult member) in 1834 and marched to Missouri. He returned to Kirtland, filled a mission in 1837, with Jedediah M. Grant and others as companions, filled other missions later and baptized over eight hundred persons. He raised up a branch of five hundred members in Philadelphia" - Andrew Jenson, Biographical Encyclopedia (Vol. 4 - Pg. 682). This is an early and seminal LDS work that is rarely offered for sale. This volume was produced during the LDS church's early years in the Midwest, and it shows the foundations for some aspects of Mormon theology (the Priesthood of the Old Testament and God's Covenant with Abraham to name two).

        Leopold Auenbrugger‘s ... Neue Erfindung mittelst des Anschlagens an den Brustkorb, als eines Zeichens, verborgene Brust-Krankheiten zu entdecken. Im lateinischen Original herausgegeben, übersetzt und mit Anmerkungen versehen von Dr. S. Ungar. Begleitet mit einem Vorworte von Joseph Skoda, Doctor der Medicin, Primararzt am k.k. allgem. Krankenhause zu Wien, &c. &c.

      Wien, J.B. Wallishausser, 1843. 8°, OBr., unbeschnitten, in mod. Lwd.-Kassette; ODeckel, VIII, 72 S. (lateinischer und deutscher Paralleltext, zweispaltig gedruckt) außerordentlich seltene EA der deutschen Übersetzung von Auenbruggers berühmter Schrift \"Inventum novum\", ein \"Meilenstein in der Geschichte der Medizin\" (HEIRS OF HIPPOCRATES 599). Auenbrugger (1722-1809) hatte schon bei van Swieten gelernt, dass durch das Beklopfen des Abdomens manche Krankheiten (z.B. Bauchwassersucht) festgestellt werden konnten. Sieben Jahre lang studierte er die verschiedenen Schallphänomene, die beim Beklopfen des Brustkorbs mit den Fingern entstanden, bevor er die Ergebnisse publizierte (\"Inventum novum...\", 1761). Die wissenschaftliche Anerkennung der Bedeutung dieser Entdeckung blieb ihm jedoch bis kurz vor seinem Lebensende verwehrt; insbesondere van Swieten selbst verschmähte seine Arbeit und schwieg sie tot. Maximilian Stoll - damals Direktor der Medizinischen Klinik am Spanischen Hospital - probierte die neue Methode aus und lobte sie in einem seiner Bücher, aber dies hatte keine weiteren Konsequenzen. Auenbrugger verließ das Spanische Spital in Wien enttäuscht und zog sich in eine Privatpraxis zurück; die Perkussion geriet in Vergessenheit. Erst durch Jean Nicolas Corvisart (1755-1821) erhielt sie ihre verdiente Anerkennung; er entdeckte die Bemerkung von Stoll und gab 1808 eine französische Übersetzung des \"Inventum novum...\" heraus. Joseph Skoda (1805-1881) gehörte zu den besten Klinikern der jüngeren Wiener Medizinischen Schule und begründete nach eingehender Beschäftigung mit den Methoden der Perkussion und Auskultation die moderne physikalische Diagnostik. Seine eigene \"Abhandlung über Perkussion und Auskultation\" (Wien 1839) wurde weltbekannt. - NORMAN 86; HIRSCH/H. I, 225 Versand D: 5,00 EUR alte Medizin

        Manuscript, "Idiotismes Francais et Proverbes proprement dits, recueillis, definis et mis dans un noucel ordre"

      early 19th century, France - Period half sheep and marbled paper; 4to (197 x 254 mm); pp. 70, handwritten in black ink on the rectos only, in a tidy, tiny script. Backstrip chipped, with gatherings exposed (but everything holding just fine); boards a bit scuffed. An extensive compilation, in two parts, of French idioms and proverbs -- listed in alphabetical order, and with explanations. The preface suggests joint authorship, but Joachim-Simeon Lucet (the London-based author of "Langue Francaise," 1843) undoubtedly had some hand in the creation of this interesting, rigorous, and frequently amusing manuscript.

        Souvenirs d'un voyage dans l'Inde exécuté de 1834 à 1839

      1843 - 2 parties en un volume de Paris, Fortin, Massion et Cie, Langlois et Leclerq, 1843, in-4, 2 parties en un volume de (8), III, (1), 134pp. puis (4), 107, (1)pp, et 35 planches dont 24 coloriées à la main et une grande carte dépliante, demi-veau fauve de l'époque, dos lisse portant une pièce de titre en maroquin noir (restaurations des mors et coiffes), PREMIERE EDITION. Durant son loin voyage de 5 années, Adolphe Delessert visita successivement les îles Maurice, la Réunion, Pondichéry, Malacca, Singapour, Java et Madras. La narration de son voyage forme la première partie de ses "Souvenirs" : parti de Nantes en avril 1834, et après des escales à Madère et aux Canaries, il parvint sur l'Ile Maurice et sur l’Ile Bourbon (il y apprit beaucoup sur les habitants, la flore et la faune de cette région du globe). Puis, il navigua sur les Indes néerlandaises, Calcutta, Bengali, Bombay, Goa, et étudia longuement la flore et le climat très variable du Mont Nilgiri. De retour en France, en avril 1839, il rapportait avec lui une vaste collection de mammifères, oiseaux, reptiles, poissons, insectes, coquillages, plantes et minéraux exotiques de nombreuses régions différentes. En effet, au cours de son périple, il constitua une importante collection d'histoire naturelle dont de nombreuses espèces étaient encore inconnues des naturalistes européens. Conscient de la richesse de ses découvertes et observations, il consacra la seconde partie de ses "Souvenirs" à l'histoire naturelle, alors que dés 1840 Blainville et Duméril avait lu à l’Institut plusieurs rapports sur la collection de Delessert. Cette seconde partie propose donc une sélection raisonnée de son considérable cabinet de voyageur naturaliste : quelques mammifères, une dizaine d'oiseaux, une trentaine d'insectes, et environ 20 lépidoptères. Le tout illustré de fine gravures rehaussées en couleurs. Plusieurs des planches de la première partie sont uniformément roussies et quelques faibles piqûres courent dans les marges de la seconde partie [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT SIGNED BY JOHN P. SARPY, TESTIFYING TO THE DISPERSAL OF THE ESTATE OF HENRY FRAEB AND THE DIFFICULTY OF COLLECTING MONEY FROM FAMED MOUNTAIN MAN JIM BRIDGER]

      St. Louis, 1843. Folio. Old fold lines; some separation at folds, a few repaired with older archival tape. Quite clean and bright. Good. A remarkable window into the business dealings of famed mountain man Jim Bridger, this signed manuscript affidavit of John P. Sarpy testifies to his actions on behalf of the estate of fellow fur trader Henry Fraeb, who was killed by Indians in the Rocky Mountains. Sarpy, who was a partner in the major firm of Pierre Chouteau & Co., had worked closely with Fraeb and knew him well. In his affidavit he writes about the Chouteau Company's concerns about Jim Bridger, Fraeb's partner at the time of his demise, and the difficulty of getting Bridger to pay his debts. Dated at St. Louis, Sarpy's affidavit states: "...on the 8th day of August last he was appointed...administrator of the estate of Henry Fraeb then lately deceased. Said Fraeb had been a trader in the mountains, & was at the time of his death in partnership with a man of the name of James Bridger, & said Bridger & Fraeb were indebted to the firm of Pierre Chouteau Jr. & Co., & it was feared by the members of said firm that unless some one became the administrator of the said Fraeb, the said Bridger might interpose difficulties in the settlement of the accounts existing between them & Bridger & Fraeb. & for the purpose of doing justice to themselves, as well as to the said Fraeb, the said Sarpy applied for letters of administration, which were granted to him as above mentioned. The said Bridger has however since this time been here & has settled in full the accounts existing between the firm of Pierre Chouteau Jr. & Co. & the said Bridger & Fraeb. And the said Sarpy says that no property has come into his hands as the administrator of the said Fraeb, although it may be that the said Fraeb has property in the [mountain?] country or in the hands of James Bridger his former partner." Though he may have been one of the greatest and most beloved mountain men of all time, Jim Bridger was not the best debt in the world, nor did Pierre Chouteau & Co. forget business.

Said Fraeb had been a trader in the mountains, & was at the time of his death in partnership with a man of the name of James Bridger, & said Bridger & Fraeb were indebted to the firm of Pierre Chouteau Jr. & Co., & it was feared by the members of said firm that unless some one became the administrator of the said Fraeb, the said Bridger might interpose difficulties in the settlement of the accounts existing between them & Bridger & Fraeb. & for the purpose of doing justice to themselves, as well as to the said Fraeb, the said Sarpy applied for letters of administration, which were granted to him as above mentioned. The said Bridger has however since this time been here & has settled in full the accounts existing between the firm of Pierre Chouteau Jr. & Co. & the said Bridger & Fraeb. And the said Sarpy says that no property has come into his hands as the administrator of the said Fraeb, although it may be that the said Fraeb has property in the [mountain?] country or in the hands of James Bridger his former partner." Though he may have been one of the greatest and most beloved mountain men of all time, Jim Bridger was not the best debt in the world, nor did Pierre Chouteau & Co. forget business.

        A HOLOGRAPHIC LETTER BY J.B. STAPLES, ATTORNEY FOR JABEZ B. CROOK, 1843.

      New York, 1843. A holographic letter, sheet size opens to be. 40 x 25.4 cm., folds down to be 13 x 7 cm., very good, wax. seal [torn to open the letter], single page of text 20 x 25.. 4 cm., very good, written in a bold hand Dated Dec. 9, 1843.. This is a fascinating and superb piece of diplomatic history vis-à-vis the first American commercial trade treaty with China, thus stabilizing trade with China and America. This item concerns the gift to China of a working steam train model. * The letter is addressed to Gilbert Thompson, Chief Engineer of the U.S. Navy, Washington City, D.C. Forwarding a $60 claim for the model of a Steam Train Engine, made by Jabez B. Crook "to your order last summer, to be taken to China." * WHO WAS JABEZ B. CROOK: Crook was a very skilled machinist, and he produced a model Steam Train of such high quality that it was intended as a diplomatic gift to the Emperor of China, to open commercial trade with America. Crook was later known for his superb quality bamboo fishing rods and was a pioneer for his hand-crafted fishing reels. . With the new appointment of Caleb Cushing to be the Honorable U.S. ENVOY EXTRAORDIANARY TO CHINA [and former Massachusetts Congressman] Cushing wanted to impress the Chinese with America's new and technological marvels such as the telegraph, new daguerreotype photography and a model steam train engine. To that end, Cushing enlisted John R. Peters, Jr., a brilliant young engineer to accompany his diplomatic mission to China in order to "exhibit the finest fruits of American mechanical ingenuity before the Chinese." It was most likely that Peters commissioned Crook to sell the U.S. Government this steam train placing the order through Thomson, a lawyer who was the Navy's "Chief Engineer" because his father, a Justice of the Supreme court had once been a Secretary of the Navy. More research is needed about the model train and its voyage and delivery to the Chinese. * THE STEAM TRAIN: A fascinating association in that a similar if not identical steam train, telegraph and other American marvels were delivered to the Japanese in 1854 as gifts to the Japanese, all of which is well documented in the Commodore Perry Expedition. We are still researching to confirm this is the exact one made by Crook. The fact remains that a steam train was given as one of many gifts to the Japanese, and for sure, Caleb Cushing was also involved with these gifts to Japan with the opening of trade with Commodore Perry just a few years after the opening of China. See Pineau below. * Although Cushing did petition to have audience with the Emperor of China, after his arrival to Canton, this was denied, instead met with the Governor of Guandong & Guangxi who was the highest Chinese official he could muster, and said to be the emissary of the Emperor of China. The Treaty of Wanghia was signed on July 3, 1844, at Kun Iam Temple, a village in north Macau. * CONDITION: The letter is in excellent condition, with a very faint and small stain on the recto, and another on the verso which does not affect any text. There are two black stamps from "BARNUM'S CITI HOTEL, MONUMENT SQUARE BALTIMORE" on the verso, along with the addressee's address "Gilbert Thompson Esq, Chief Engineer of Navy, Washington City. D.C." Folded and red seal wax sealed, a minor bit of paper was torn [naturally] when this letter was opened. The remains of the seal closure on opposite side. No envelope as was standard for the times, but having an integral envelope, by folding and wax sealing the paper. Nice condition boldly written in wide pen. Signed by J.G. Staples the lawyer. * REFERENCES: * The Treaty of Wanghia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Wanghia * [PINEAU, Roger.]: THE JAPAN EXPEDITION 1852-1855 OF COMMODORE MATTHEW CALBRAITH PERRY: see pages 173-174 last paragraph: "We have established a magnetic telegraph....we have laid down the entire railroad track sent from the United States, and put the steam engine, tender, and car in excellent practical operation, carrying round the circle many of the astonished natives. We have exhibited and explained the use of numerous useful inventions of our country...." And on p. 176-177: AMERICAN GIFTS. "...First assistant engineer Danby with the requisite number of mechanics, was employed in unpacking and putting in working order the locomotive engine, whilst Messrs. Draper and Williams were equally busy in preparing the erect the telegraphic posts for the extension of the magnetic lines [for the telegraph]." * RE: Crook: Crook's fishing tackle: http://fishinghistory.blogspot.com/2009/01/thursday-review-o rcas-reel-news-january.html *** Color scans can be sent by email.

        Juggernaut: It's Present State, under British Patronage & Support, as settled by Lord Auckland. With an Introductory Letter to Lord Fitzgerald and Vesci.

      London: Hatchard and Son, 1843 - Octavo. Stitched as issued. A touch of foxing to title page, light signs of handling to back cover. An excellent copy. Second edition, originally published in 1842, but with a new Introductory Letter (dated 1843); both editions are rare, this one recorded by Copac in only two British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, Cambridge), and OCLC locates just one (Peabody Essex Museum). Presentation copy from the author, inscribed at the head of title page: "The Revd. Dr Jarvis, with the author's respects". "Juggernaut" was the British word for the enormous Hindu temple car used at the Jagannath Temple at Puri. The East India Company extracted a toll from visitors to the shrine and there was uproar in some quarters in Britain about what was considered a levy on "idolatry". Lord Auckland oversaw the abolition of the practice in 1839. Strachan mentions in his Introductory Letter that publication of this revised edition had been suspended because of the "disastrous intelligence from Affghanistan [sic]", a reference to the First Anglo-Afghan War (1839-42).

This is Kierkegaard's first major philosophical work propounding the theory of choice and existence; only 525 copies of this edition were published in 1843 at Kierkegaard's own expense. As a thinker, Kierkegaard had to wait for the twentieth century to find his audience; he is now generally considered to be, however eccentric, one of the most important Christian philosophers." (Printing and the Mind of Man, # 314.) Søren Aabye Kierkegaard was a Danish philosopher, theologian, poet, social critic and religious author who is widely considered to be the first existentialist philosopher. Kierkegaard's magnum opus Either/Or was published 20 February 1843; it was mostly written during Kierkegaard's stay in Berlin, where he took notes on Schelling's Philosophy of Revelation. Either/Or includes essays of literary and music criticism and a set of romantic-like-aphorisms, as part of his larger theme of examining the reflective and philosophical structure of faith. Edited by "Victor Eremita", the book contained the papers of an unknown "A" and "B" which the pseudonymous author claimed to have discovered in a secret drawer of his secretary. Eremita had a hard time putting the papers of "A" in order because they were not straightforward. "B"'s papers were arranged in an orderly fashion. Both of these characters are trying to become religious individuals. Each approached the idea of first love from an esthetic and an ethical point of view. The book is basically an argument about faith and marriage with a short discourse at the end telling them they should stop arguing. Eremita thinks "B", a judge, makes the most sense. Kierkegaard stressed the "how" of Christianity as well as the "how" of book reading in his works rather than the "what" WikipediaThis collection is on consignment with LDRB.

        The Great Aerial Navigator, or Atmospheric Machine! Under the superintendence of the ?Aerial Conveyance Company,? for the conveying of passengers, troops and government despatches to India and China, in the short space of five days, by means of a new improved system of ?aerial navigation? adapted also to proceed on water or land, and can be used as a most destructive instrument of war .?

      Vickers. 1843 - Single sheet folio broadside with central woodcut illus. beneath title. Approx. 37.5 x 50cm. Mounted on cream card. v.g. Not in the BM print collection, not recorded on Copac or OCLC. A wonderful broadside satirising the Victorian fixation with air travel and the remarkable if implausible designs for accomplishing success; this one, by an anonymous ?inventor?, is accompanied with a key explaining ?the most extraordinary invention of modern times? It includes a mechanical eagle with smoke released through its mouth, a telegraph, parachutes, a boat ?in the Chinese style?, and eight paddles that act as fans whilst in the air or actual paddles when in water. The explanatory text is concluded with a letter from the inventor to ?Her Majesty?s Ministers?: ?Placed at the head of a great nation, I call on you to avail yourselves of my invention, which I will prove to you, if adopted, all of the nations of the earth combined can never stand against our power. But, my Lords, I do not mention that fact, with the view of making my country the tyrant of the world, but for the more noble purpose of causing her to be the arbiter of every good? After the first flight of a hot air-balloon in 1783 a great swathe of wonderfully implausible designs for air travel emerged. Robertson?s Minerva, designed in 1804, was intended to carry sixty people and up to 150,000 pounds in weight. In 1843 William Samuel Henson created the Aerial Transit Company which patented the aerial steam carriage, a significant and pioneering move towards powered flight.

        Diary of Travels and Adventures in Upper India, from Bareilly, in Rohilcund, to Hurdwar, and Nahun, in the Himmalaya mountains, with a tour in Bundelcund, a sporting excursion in the kingdom of Oude, and a voyage down the Ganges, by C. J. C. Davidson ... late Lt.-Colonel of Engineers, Bengal

      London: Henry Colburn, 1843. 2 volumes, octavo. (7 1/2 x 4 5/8 inches). Contemporary calf bound for the Northern Light Board, covers with a border built up from fillets ruled in gilt and blind, the spines in six compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, green morocco in the third, the uppermost compartment tooled in gilt with Northern Light Board stamp, the others with repeat panelling in gilt, marbled endpapers, marbled edges Provenance: Northern Light Board, Scotland (binding) A very fine copy of the first edition of this charming and surprisingly rare work. As the title suggests, the work is in fact made up of a series of narratives describing various trips made by the author. The first volume is in three parts. The first part, "Travels from Bareilly, in Rohilcund, to Hurdwar and Nahun," ends abruptly on p.168. On the following page, whilst bewailing the loss to the "literature of the age", the author explains that "a vile thief entered my tents at night, and robbed me of my second volume ... In this manner did I lose my carefully-written account of the sub-Himalayan range, which cost me fully eight months' labour while in the hills." The second part in the first volume is on Bundelcund, and the volume ends with the first section of the author's "Journal of a Voyage [started in December 1839] from Allahabad to Calcutta, via Dacca and the Soonderbunds." Volume two is made up of the concluding part of the "Journal of a Voyage...", followed by "A Sporting Tour [undertaken in 1836] in the Kingdom of Oude". The writing style of the author, which manages to be both humourous and bombastic at the same time, allied with his obvious deep knowledge of the country and the people are what give this work its period charm. The work is quite rare, with no other copies listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty five years. A fine copy of a delightful gem which deserves a place in any serious collection of books on the Indian sub-continent.

        The Orchardist's Companion a quarterly journal, devoted to the history, character, properties, modes of cultivation, and all other matters appertaining to the fruits of the United States, embellished with richly colored designs of the natural size, painted from the actual fruits when in their finest condition

      Philadelphia: A. Hoffy, 1843. 3 volumes in one, quarto. (11 1/8 x 8 3/4 inches). 3 letterpress title pages (2 with large wood-engraved vignettes). 58 (of 60) hand-coloured lithographed plates of American fruit by and after Hoffy, E.Quayle and D.S.Quintin, all printed by P.S.Duval of Philadelphia. (Lacking the first plate in 'vol.II' 'Elton Pine Strawberry' and the fourth 'Bellflower'). Contemporary black hard-grain morocco, covers with outer gilt triple fillet border, spine in five compartments with semi-raised bands, the bands highlighted with tooling in gilt and flanked by double fillets in blind, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, gilt edges Provenance: John H. Edmonds (Leicester, Mass., inscription, dated 1901) "The first American journal completely devoted to fruit" (Oak Spring Pomona) and one of the rarest of American works illustrated with hand-coloured lithographs: this copy from the deluxe coloured issue and including the very rare second volume. Only one complete set of this short-lived high quality periodical is recorded as having sold at auction in the past 25 years. It was launched under the patronage of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society as a quarterly journal dedicated to fruit and fruit growing in the United States. Hoffy intended that each annual volume should be made up of two sections. The first to include text with wood-engraved illustrations covering all aspects of fruit growing: reporting on the latest varieties, discussions on their relative merits, papers on pests and diseases of fruit, etc. The second section was to include accurate and beautiful lithographic plates of individual varieties, hand-coloured or uncoloured, each plate to be faced by one or more pages of descriptive text including useful (and historically important) lists of the various names by which the varieties are known. The work was sold at seven dollars per annum if paid in advance, or two dollars per part for the four parts, for the `Best or Colored Edition' or four dollars in advance or one dollar twenty-five cents per issue for the uncoloured issue. The present volume contains all that was published (five quarterly parts) of a work that seems to have foundered because it was too expensive for the market it was aimed at. It includes plates of 13 (of 14) varieties of apple, 2 apricot, 4 cherry, 3 grape, 15 pear, 12 peach, 7 plum and 2 (of 3) strawberry. "Alfred Hoffy worked for several printers of lithographs in Philadelphia. Among other subjects, he drew several portraits, including one of the original Siamese twins, Eng and Chang, in 1837, but his enthusiasm for recording fruit trees seems to have taken up a good deal of his time. His Orchardist's Companion was the first American journal completely devoted to fruit and its cultivation" (Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona ,p.155). After the failure of the present work Hoffy went on to make two other attempts at publishing similar works. In 1851 he published The American Pomologist (with ten plates) and in 1860 he tried again with The North American Pomologist which included 36 plates including the ten issued in 1851. Copies of the present work vary in collation. It was issued in parts, but Hoffy recommended that subscribers eventually bind the parts into two separate volumes for each year: one of preliminary text, and a second containing the plates and their descriptive pages - this explains the sub-titles to the first two titles (Vol.I April. 1841 and Vol. 2 April. 1841). The third title is sub-titled Volume 2 and is dated 1842-3. Wainwright notes that Hoffy issued parts of the Orchardist's Companion on a quarterly schedule beginning in 1841, with each part containing twelve illustrations of fruit. The final installment of the work, which raised the total to sixty plates is particularly rare. In the present copy all the text and the plates are in a single volume. Despite Hoffy's attempts at similar efforts, enthusiasm for his pomological productions waned. "Patronized by an impressive list of subscribers headed by the President of the United States, endorsed by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, and the recipient of a silver medal awarded by the American Institute of New York, The Orchardist's Companion nevertheless withered on the vine for lack of adequate support" (Wainwright). Cost was certainly a factor; though great plans were laid, no further additions to The Orchardist's Companion were forthcoming. Still, Hoffy was successful in creating an American fruit book of considerable beauty that became an early benchmark for the genre. Bennett, p.86; Oak Spring Pomona 59; Wainwright Philadelphia in the Romantic Age of Lithography, p.42.

        AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT SIGNED: A PLEA FOR ABOLITION OF SLAVERY PENNED AS A SONNET BY GEORGE THOMPSON ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF EMANCIPATION IN GREAT BRITAIN.

      Delhi [India]: August, 1843. - - Over 123 words penned on an 8-1/4 inch high by 5-1/2 inch wide sheet of light blue paper. Titled "Sonnet / On the Morning of the 1st of August, the Anniversary of Emancipation", a magnificent 14-line anti-slavery sonnet that concludes with the powerful statement ". It is decreed! not far remote the time, / When freedom's trump shall sound through / every clime!". Signed "Geo. Thompson". Mounted with glue from the top of the verso onto a strip of heavier stock from an album, the letter is folded several times horizontally and vertically, with short teats to the edges of the folds. A piece is clipped from the top left corner and the right edge is creased and lightly chipped near the bottom. Apparently penned on a larger sheet with a portion of the mailing address with a red postal cancellation stamp from India penned on the verso. Good. The Slavery Abolition Act passed by the UK Parliament in 1833 came into force on August 1, 1834.The British antislavery orator and activist George Donisthorpe Thompson (1804-1878) worked toward the abolition of slavery through lecture tour and by introducing legislation while serving as a member of Parliament. An able orator, he was hired by the London Anti- Slavery Society in 1831. While in Scotland in 1832, where he became interested in abolishing slavery in the United States as well as other parts of the world, he met William Lloyd Garrison and the African-American abolitionist Nathaniel Paul. Invited to visit New England by Garrison, he traveled to the US in 1834 where he drew the attention of pro-slavery supporters and was forced to flee for his life. The Hobart Town Courier later printed a letter in which Thompson stated that he had ".left the United Sates to escape the asassins knife.", the editor noting that attempts had been made to "burn and murder" him in several US towns. He returned to the US following the passing of the Fugitive Slave Law in 1850. By then, the abolitionist movement having substantially grown and gained in influence, Thompson found a warmer welcome. Returning to London, he and his son founded the London Emancipation Society which supported the Union during the Civil War. Returning to America, allied himself with William Wells Brown and met President Abraham Lincoln. Throughout his life, Thompson was a powerful voice for emancipation. He supported East Indian reform, free trade, Chartism, non-resistance and the peace movement, often protesting legislation that offered only limited restriction on slavery.A remarkable example of the autograph of one of history's greatest abolitionist.

        [Le moyen-âge monumental et archéologique ... vues & détails et plans des monumens les plus remarquables de l'Europe. Depuis le VIe jusqu'au XVIIIe [sic] siècle. Lithog. d'après les dessins de Chapuy. Avec un résumé théorique et des notices spéciales, formant ensemble une histoire de l'architecture de cette époque]

      Introduction by Daniel Ramée. Paris: chez A. Hauser, 1843. 2 volumes, folio. (17 5/8 x 12 1/4 inches). Text: [1-]62pp., extra-illustrated with a lithographed upper cover on light brown paper, from an original wrapper, bound as an additional title. Plates: 432 lithographic plates only (of 444), after Chapuy and others. (Spotting to about 65 plates). Text: stitched with linen backing; Plates: plates 13-220 unbound as issued, contained (with the text) in a 20th-century green leather-backed cloth portfolio, titled in gilt on the spine; plates 221-444 unbound as issued, contained within a second matching portfolio and slipcase, with an original upper wrapper pasted to inside of each portfolio A spectacular and very rare visual survey of early European architecture by some of best French lithographers of their time. There is only one copy of this work listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty-five years. Chapuy, an architectural draughtsman, illustrator and lithographer, served as an officer in the French marine engineers before turning to art and illustration full time. From the early 1820s onwards, he contributed to a string of works on individual buildings, and also more wide-ranging surveys. The present work is a culmination and summation of all his earlier work - it offers the largest selection of his work, as well as covering the largest area geographically: from Venice to Granada to the Low Countries to Germany. The title is somewhat misleading, as the selection also includes a substantial number of examples of lithographs by and after other artists, indeed, as a whole, it offers a fair sample of the work of many of the major artist/lithographers working in France at the time, including P. Benoist, J. Peyre, Ficot, Guesdon, A. Bichebois, Jacottet, Bachelier, Cuvillier, etc. The images range from pure architectural plans, to reconstructions based on earlier sources, to contemporary views of the sites, taken from life, and peopled with either their medieval inhabitants or their 19th-century descendants: the best images are truly spectacular.

        A System of Logic:

      London: John W. Parker,, 1843. Ratiocinative and Inductive, Being a Connected View of the Principles of Evidence, and the Methods of Scientific Investigation. 2 volumes, octavo (256 × 135 mm). Bound in contemporary brown diced calf, twin black morocco labels to spine lettered gilt, marbled edges and endpapers. Housed in a custom red slipcase. Endleaves mildly foxed, tips worn, spine ends slightly worn, board edges rubbed, minor loss to upper tip of Vol. II. A very good set, internally fresh. First edition of the author's philosophical work, outlining the five principles of inductive reasoning, now known as Mill's methods. Often considered as Mill's best work, A System of Logic was twelve years in the making. "Mill began his book with the assertion that he was not concerned with the contested territory of epistemology, but only with the structure of logical argument. This austere agenda proved, however, impossible to observe at every point, and the text frequently spilt over into deep questions of human understanding [...] In Mill's view the study of the phenomenal world was a self-contained process of inference between induction and deduction, the latter being the formulation of general laws out of conjunctions of the more particular 'empirical' laws derived from the former." (ODNB). With the bookplate of Dr Sydney Ross, scientist, teacher and bibliophile, and Professor of Colloid Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, New York.

This is Kierkegaard's first major philosophical work propounding the theory of choice and existence; only 525 copies of this edition were published in 1843 at Kierkegaard's own expense. As a thinker, Kierkegaard had to wait for the twentieth century to find his audience; he is now generally considered to be, however eccentric, one of the most important Christian philosophers." (Printing and the Mind of Man, # 314.) Søren Aabye Kierkegaard was a Danish philosopher, theologian, poet, social critic and religious author who is widely considered to be the first existentialist philosopher. Kierkegaard's magnum opus Either/Or was published 20 February 1843; it was mostly written during Kierkegaard's stay in Berlin, where he took notes on Schelling's Philosophy of Revelation. Either/Or includes essays of literary and music criticism and a set of romantic-like-aphorisms, as part of his larger theme of examining the reflective and philosophical structure of faith. Edited by "Victor Eremita", the book contained the papers of an unknown "A" and "B" which the pseudonymous author claimed to have discovered in a secret drawer of his secretary. Eremita had a hard time putting the papers of "A" in order because they were not straightforward. "B"'s papers were arranged in an orderly fashion. Both of these characters are trying to become religious individuals. Each approached the idea of first love from an esthetic and an ethical point of view. The book is basically an argument about faith and marriage with a short discourse at the end telling them they should stop arguing. Eremita thinks "B", a judge, makes the most sense. Kierkegaard stressed the "how" of Christianity as well as the "how" of book reading in his works rather than the "what" WikipediaThis collection is on consignment with LDRB.
