      Henry Colburn, London - 1843, 1st Edition. (Hardcover) Very good. xxii, [1], 387, [16pp. pub adverts.]; vi, [1], 474pp. Octavo, in original blind stamped straight grain blue cloth, with gilt titles. Spines slightly faded, covers a little rubbed, but without loss of cloth. In Canary yellow endpapers, with light soiling, with bookplate of Frank S. Streeter. Text blocks clean and tight. Three maps laid loose in the front board of Vol. 1. Eight full page engravings in Volume 1 and Eleven in Volume 2 all with plate tissues. Numerous vignettes in both volumes. 16 page catalogue dated Feb. 1843 in the back of Vol. 1. Corners a little bumped. Captain Edward Belcher (1799-1877) served on, or was in command of, numerous surveys of the coasts of Northern and Western Africa, Ireland, Western America, China, Borneo, the Phillipines, and Formosa. In 1852, he commanded the expedition in search of Sir John Franklin. Belcher's account of his circumnavigation commences in February, 1837, in Panama, when he took command of the Royal Navy Ship Sulphur and, together with the RNS Starling, sailed northward to Central America, thence to the Sandwich Islands [Hawaii]. Then sailed back to North America, exploring the Vancouver Island area, then to San Francisco, and south down the coasts of California, and Central America, back to Panama. In 1838, Belcher headed back north, largely repeating the previous cruise, with more stops. Belcher then set sail across the Pacific, visiting Tahiti, Tonga, the New Hebrides, and today's Indonesia. He was then ordered to China, and took part in the naval operations there. Returned to England, via Singapore, Sumatra, Ceylon, Madagascar. Cape of Good Hope, St. Helena and Ascension.

        KA PALAPALA HEMOLELE A IEHOVA KO KAKOU AKUA O KE KAUOHA KAHIKO A ME KE KAUOHA HOU I UNUHIIA MAILOKO MAI O NA OLELO KAHIKO

      Oahu & Honolulu: Na Na Misionari I Pai, 1843. Large, thick octavo. Contemporary ruled Hawaiian sheep. Binding rubbed, minor wear at extremities of joints. Small insect track in extreme lower edge of first eight leaves. Ink stamp of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions Library on front pastedown, verso of titlepage, and final text page. Scattered foxing and age toning. Very good, in original condition. In a half morocco box. The first joint publication of the Old and New Testaments as an entity in the Hawaiian language, printed for the American Bible Society at the Mission Presses in Oahu (Old Testament) and Honolulu (New Testament). A number of printings of various books or groups of books of the Bible were printed as early as 1827, and the first Hawaiian printing of the New Testament appeared in 1835, with the Old Testament following in 1838. These printings are frequently found bound together, although issued separately. This is the first publication of the complete approved text as an entity, paginated continuously, and issued as one book. The New Testament has its own titlepage (p.1129) and imprint. The verso of the first titlepage bears the words, "Ka lua o ke pai ana" (the second printing), referring to the only other printing of the entire Old Testament in 1838 at the same press. A second printing of the entire Bible was made later in 1843; but curiously enough, Judd, et al, record no other complete printing of the Bible in the Hawaiian language through 1899. A handsome copy of an important Hawaiian Bible, in a Hawaiian binding. JUDD 265. FORBES 1416. HUNNEWELL, pp.24-25.

        A Christmas Carol

      London: Chapman & Hall. First Edition. Full Morocco. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE of Dickens's classic; in beautiful early (c1900) full morocco gilt by Riviere. "In October 1843 [Dickens] had the sudden inspiration of writing a Christmas story intended to open its readers' hearts towards those struggling to survive on the lower rungs of the economic ladder and to encourage practical benevolence, but also to warn of the terrible danger to society created by the toleration of widespread ignorance and actual want among the poor. The result, written at white heat, was A Christmas Carol: in Prose, published by Chapman and Hall on 19 December as a handsomely bound little volume with four hand-coloured illustrations by John Leech, price 5s. This 'Ghost Story of Christmas', as it was subtitled, was a sensational success. The story of the archetypal miser Scrooge's conversion to benevolence by supernatural means, and the resulting preservation of the poor crippled child, Tiny Tim ('who did NOT die'), was greeted with almost universal delight (in the February 1844 number of Fraser's Thackeray called it 'a national benefit and to every man or woman who reads it a personal kindness')..." American National Biography. First state: With "Stave I", and title page printed in red and blue and dated 1843. Complete with half-title (printed in blue) and four hand-colored plates by Leech. London: Chapman & Hall, 1843. Octavo, late nineteenth/early twentieth century full red morocco gilt by Riviere & Son (binder's stamp on front free endpaper), gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Faint early owner signature on half-title. Text with occasional soiling (but overall extremely clean), a hint of rubbing and minor split at joint extremities. An outstanding copy, very handsomely bound.

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").

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.

        [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"

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.
