        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Donizetti").

      [Wohl Wien], "1 Giugno" [1843?].. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse und Siegelspur am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief).. Unveröffentlichter Brief an Carlo Balocchino, der von April 1836 bis zur Revolution von 1848 zusammen mit dem Mailänder Impresario Bartolomeo Merelli das Wiener Hofoperntheater am Kärntnertor leitete, mit Anweisungen für eine bevorstehende Generalprobe, wahrscheinlich für die am 5. Juni 1843 uraufgeführte "Maria di Rohan": "Il ritardo non viene gia da parte mia, ne dall' orchestra. Il ritardo e causato dal pochissimo zelo col quale si serve sul palco scenico. Credo pure, che la e cattivissima abitudine quella di concedere che alla prova generale non sien pronti gli attrezzi d'ogni genere. Da queste fatali concessioni ne derivano i disguidi: Le rinnovello a dunque la preghiera di farsi che sabbato mattina tutti gli attrezzi, ma tutti, sieno a mia disposizione. Come maestro di musica non dovrei chieder questo, ma avendo a cuore il bene delle cose, e vedendo l'indolenza di chi deve servire, sono a cio forzato. - La Sua osservazione sopra i cori e l'orchestra, sara giusti[ssi]ma, la credo. In tal caso converra sabbato allora nella mattina radunarsi di nuovo. Le replico la preghiera di dar gli ordini per domattina sulla scena come le scrissi, ed aggiungere l'altro per sabbato mattina con ogni attrezzo necessario. - Quanto a cantanti, ella si serva come le piace. Ne e il padrone. Se avran voce per l'opera nuova cantaranno, se no, ... differiremo. Mr. [Leone] Herz le aveva ben promesso, ma la colpa le replico, non e sua ne mia, ma dell' indolenza nel servizio sulla scena [...]" ("Die Verzögerung kommt weder von meiner Seite noch vom Orchester. Die Verzögerung kommt von dem äußerst geringen Eifer, dessen man sich auf der Bühne bedient. Ich glaube auch, daß dort die sehr schlechte Angewohnheit herrscht, zu erlauben, dass bei der Generalprobe nicht alle Requisiten jeder Art fertig sind. Aus diesen fatalen Zugeständnissen ergeben sich Mißverständnisse: Ich erneuere Ihnen gegenüber folglich die Bitte zu veranlassen, daß Samstagvormittag alle Requisiten, aber alle, zu meiner Verfügung stehen mögen. Als Musikmeister sollte ich nicht darum bitten, aber da mir der gute Verlauf der Dinge am Herzen liegt und ich die Trägheit derer sehe, die zu Diensten stehen sollten, bin ich dazu gezwungen. - Ihre Beobachtung über die Chöre und das Orchester wird ganz richtig sein, und ich glaube sie. In einem solchen Fall wird es nötig sein, sich also Samstagvormittag nochmals zu versammeln. Ich wiederhole Ihnen gegenüber meine Bitte, die Anweisungen für morgen Vormittag auf der Bühne zu geben, wie ich Ihnen geschrieben habe, und das andere für Samstagvormittag hinzuzufügen mit jeder notwendigen Requisite. - Was die Sänger betrifft, bedienen Sie sich ihrer, wie es Ihnen beliebt. Hier sind Sie der Chef. Wenn sie Stimme für die neue Oper haben, werden sie singen, wenn nicht, ... verschieben wir. Herr Herz hat Ihnen das wohl versprochen, aber die Schuld, ich wiederhole es Ihnen, liegt weder bei ihm noch bei mir, sondern in der Trägheit des Dienstes auf der Bühne [...]"). - Etwas angestaubt und gebräunt und mit kleinen Randläsuren; beiliegend ein Portrait (Ch. Jacotin, Paris, nach der Kriehuber'schen Lithographie). - Nicht bei Zavadini.

        Emigration. North America and New South Wales... Copy of any report or reports made since the last presented to this House by the Emigration Agents of Canada, New Brunswick, and New South Wales to the Governors and Councils of those Colonies

      London: HMSO for the Colonial Office, 1843. Foolscap folio, iv, 158pp. (last blank), splendid red half morocco binding by Sangorski & Sutcliffe with gilt spine lettering, top edge gilt. Bounty immigrants bound for New South Wales. Invaluable historical resource, containing much information comparing the respective merits of emigration to British North America (Canada and New Brunswick) versus New South Wales.Pages 38-157 of the report contain good information on the 'Bounty Immigrants' - skilled men and their families sponsored to settle in Australia. This initiative was undertaken by the government of Britain to stem the flow of skilled labour to the Americas, then a cheaper (and in many respects more attractive) prospect to emigrants during the period from 1830 onwards. For example, a chart over two pages lists all the Bounty Immigrant vessels, the number of men, women and children disembarked in Sydney and Port Philip, and the various costs incurred by the State in facilitating the process. This volume is from the collection of Dr. Robert Edwards AO, in a characteristically fine binding typical of his collection.

        Tinted Lithograph Panorama Titled:] Sarda, Ancient Sidon April 28th 1839.

      F.G. Moon, London 1843 - London: F.G. Moon, 1843. Tinted lithograph ca. 35,5x51 cm (14 x 20 ½ in). Some mild foxing otherwise a very good lithograph. Sidon is the is the third-largest city in Lebanon. Roberts left "London in August 1838 for Paris and thence travelling via Alexandria to Cairo, before visiting the pyramids at Giza. Hiring a cangia, he sailed up the Nile as far as Abu Simbel, stopping on his return north to sketch temples and ancient sites such as Philae, Karnak, Luxor, and Dendera. Back in Cairo he drew its streets and mosques before departing for Syria and Palestine in February 1839. He travelled through Sinai to Petra and thence north, via Hebron and Jaffa, to Jerusalem. From there he made an excursion to the Jordan, the Dead Sea, and Bethlehem and, after spending a further week in Jerusalem, he continued north, visiting many places associated with the Bible, before exploring Baalbek. He sailed for England from Beirut in May 1839, was quarantined in Malta, and returned to London in July. He was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East, and brought back 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo, and three full sketchbooks, enough material to ¿serve me for the rest of my life¿ (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade Roberts made ¿a serries of intire new drawings¿ for the 247 large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia (1842-9). No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. Roberts was to paint more oils of the East than of any other region he visited, exhibiting thirty-one at the Royal Academy alone. These received critical acclaim and sold for high prices: for example, Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives (Holloway Collection at Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, Egham) was commissioned for £330 in 1841 and his Ruins of Baalbec sold for £440 the same year, while The Island of Philae (1843; priv. Coll.) bought by a friend for £100, rapidly sold for £200, and in 1858 fetched 400 guineas. The works remain keenly sought after to this day" (Oxford DNB).

Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - "Ettingshausen studierte in Wien Philosophie und Rechtswissenschaft [...]. Er wurde 1817 Adjunkt der Mathematik und Physik an der Wiener Universität, 1819 Professor der Physik in Innsbruck und 1821 Professor der höheren Mathematik in Wien. Seine damaligen Vorlesungen bezeichnen eine neue Epoche für die Wiener Universität [...]. 1834 übernahm Ettingshausen den Lehrstuhl der Physik, 1839-1842 förderte er als Mitglied der Fürstenhof-Runde' die ersten Wiener Versuche der Fotografie, 1848 trat er zur Ingenieurakademie über [...]. 1852 [...] übernahm er die Direktion des physikalischen Instituts an der Universität, aus welchem unter seiner Leitung eine große Zahl Untersuchungen hervorging. Ettingshausen konstruierte als einer der ersten eine elektromagnetische Maschine, welche die elektrische Induktion zur Stromgewinnung verwertete [...]. Mitglied der Leopoldina seit 1862. 1866 trat Andreas von Ettingshausen in den Ruhestand und wurde in den Freiherrenstand erhoben. Er war Gründungsmitglied und mehrere Jahre lang auch erster Generalsekretär der Wiener Akademie der Wissenschaften" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Knickspuren. -

        Iles Marquises ou Nouka-Hiva. Histoire, géographie, moeurs et considérations générales. D'après les rélations des navigateurs et les documents recueillis sur les lieux

      Paris: Arthus Bertrand, 1843. Octavo, with four maps (two folding); some moderate foxing, binding a little rubbed and bumped; very good in contemporary green quarter roan. With a signed letter from the author. Scarce and important on the Marquesas by Vincendon-Dumoulin, the eminent French scientist who travelled as hydrographer on Dumont d'Urville's second expedition to the Pacific.Vincendon-Dumoulin's book is usually cited as one of the chief sources for our history of the Marquesas in the post-discovery period, especially valuable since it is at least partly based on direct personal observation. Dumont d'Urville's secretary, César Desgraz, helped him with the compilation and is credited as co-author on the title-page.Additional information, including ethnological updates, is included in the sub-chapter titled 'Notice phrenologique et ethnologique sur les naturels de l'archipel Nouka-Hiva' by Pierre Marie Dumoutier, a phrenologist aboard Dumont d'Urville's second expedition. Furthermore, this book publishes Du Petit-Thouars' report on the Marquesas.This copy includes the lengthy prospectus of 38 pages for Voyages de la Commission Scientific du Nord which is followed by a further single leaf of publisher's advertisements (see Kroepelien's note regarding this material).Loosely inserted in this copy is a letter of two pages signed by Vincendon-Dumoulin to an unknown correspondent. Dated 1 March 1844 and written on the letterhead of the Ministere de la Marine (Dépôt des Cartes et Plans), the letter discusses colonial matters and the hospital at Martinique.

        Journal of a Tour through the United States and Canada, Made during the Years 1837-38

      T. Combe for the author, Oxford 1843 - (6 5/8 x 4 1/8 inches). vi, 231 pp. Engraved folding map. Later half green polished calf over marbled paper covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, morocco lettering pieces in the second and third, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt Very rare privately-printed journal of travels in the U.S. by a noted English scientist: one of 100 copies printed. Daubeny, an English chemist, botanist and geologist, arrived in New York City in the late summer of 1837 and travelled through New York to Canada and Massachusetts before journeying through Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. turning southward to Charleston and thence by ship to New Orleans (with a stop in Cuba), before ascending the Mississippi back to St. Louis and overland back to New York. Of great interest are his scientific observations, as well as his accounts of meeting the most distinguished American men of science from that date, principally in Boston and Philadelphia, including John Webster, Benjamin Silliman, Robert Hare, George Featherstonhaugh, John Bachman and others. On his trip he collected much data on thermal springs and the geology of North America, much of which is given in tables within the work and which he later used for numerous scientific papers. "An entertaining journal, printed for private distribution in only 100 copies, of the travels of a highly placed Englishman and his man-servant. In the East, and especially in Boston and Philadelphia, where he spent considerable time, he met the best society and in journeying by land from New Orleans to St. Louis he seemed equally at home in some pretty rough company. A first class picture by a cultivated Englishman of life at that time in the United States" (Streeter). While in Washington, D.C., in January 1838, Daubeny meets with President Van Buren and attends a session of Congress where John C. Calhoun proposed resolutions on slavery, the text of which is included on pp. 100-101. There is much discussion of slavery within the work, particularly during his travels in Louisiana and up the Mississippi River, including his own discomfort on travelling in those regions with a white servant. The privately-printed work is rare, with the Streeter copy bringing $500 in 1967. Graff 1005; Howes D77; Sabin 18662; Streeter sale 849; Buck 323; Tremaine 2139. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Der Festsaal des Baden-Badener Konversationshauses

      1843. Aquarell und Weißhöhung auf Papier, unten links signiert und datiert: "Tony Johannot 1843", 16,1 x 25,5 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. In den 1830er Jahren stieg der Maler, Grafiker und Kupferstecher Tony Johannot zu einem der beliebtesten Buchillustratoren Frankreichs auf. Neben seiner extremen Produktivität - er schuf in rund 20 Jahren über 3000 Vignetten für mehr als 150 Bücher - zeichnet sich Johannots Schaffen durch besondere künstlerische Qualität aus. Auch diese Zeichnung des Baden-Badener Festsaales, bei der es sich um die Vorlage zu einer Illustration handelt, verrät die Meisterschaft des Franzosen in der Wahl des Blickwinkels und des eingefangenen Lichtspieles, dargestellt durch gekonnt gesetzte Weißhöhungen. Ein Stich dieser Arbeit findet sich in dem Reisehandbuch L'Ete a Bade von Eugene Guinot, das erstmals 1847 erschien, mehrfach neu aufgelegt und auch in englischer und deutscher Sprache publiziert wurde. Diverse Abbildungen des reich bebilderten Buches gehen auf Entwürfe Johannots zurück. Voller Anekdoten über die hohen Besucher, die Zerstreuungen des Kurlebens und Beschreibungen der sehenswerten Umgebung, festigte Guinots Werk den Ruf Baden-Badens als Sommerresidenz Europas. Im Zentrum der Baden-Badener Vergnügungen befand sich das sogenannte Konversationshaus. 1822 bis 1824 nach Plänen des klassizistischen Architekten Friedrich Weinbrenner erbaut, beherbergt es neben anderen Räumlichkeiten auch den Festsaal. Dieser wird von einer Kassettendecke überspannt. Die Wände seiner Längsseiten sind durch Pilaster gegliedert, zwischen denen unten rundbogige Nischen und Portale und im Obergeschoss rechteckige Fenster sitzen. Den Schmalseiten des Raumes sind jeweils zwei Säulen vorgeblendet, welche auf halber Höhe eine Empore tragen. Auf Johannots Darstellung blickt man von dem Raum unter einer der Emporen schräg an den Säulen vorbei in den Festsaal. Dadurch entsteht ein spannungsvoller Kontrast zwischen dem verschatteten, nach oben begrenzten Raum im Vordergrund und der Weite des Saales. In dem durch prunkvolle Lüster erhellten Raum befinden sich viele Besucher: Frauen in eleganten Kleidern mit Hauben und Handschuhen, Herren in Weste und Gehrock, ihren Hut in der Hand haltend sowie manche Kinder. Es spielen sich typische Szenen des illustren Kurlebens ab. So ist eine größere Gruppe um einen Spieltisch versammelt. Einige Damen und Herren stehen ins Gespräch vertieft beieinander, wohingegen andere scheinbar durch den Raum flanieren. Ein junger Mann lehnt sich dandyhaft gegen die Säule im Vordergrund und macht einer Dame seine Aufwartung. Links davon stehen zwei Herren, die das bunte Geschehen beobachten und kommentieren. Virtuos versteht es der Künstler, die vielen Einzelheiten mit wenigen Strichen einzufangen und die Lebendigkeit der Szene auf dem Blatt erfahrbar zu machen.

Dans une nouvelle preface datee de novembre 1843, l'editeur justifie la parution de cette seconde edition et explicite les conditions de sa publication. "Ce livre fascine depuis sa parution, en 1843, comme s'il etait le miroir magique qui revelait, au fil des ans, la vraie nature de la Russie" (Helene Carrere d'Encausse). "Le marquis de Custine decouvrit le pays des Tsars entre juin et septembre 1839, rencontrant de nombreuses personnalites, l'Empereur y compris. Son oeuvre epistolaire dessine un dur portrait d'un pays soumis a une oppression imperiale, contrastant avec l'heritage culturel d'une Russie ouverte aux Lumieres sous Catherine II. Redecouvertes en pleine guerre froide, ces lettres devinrent une lecture obligee pour qui veut entendre l'ame russe". Bel exemplaire, frais, tres bien relie a l'epoque..

Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875), der von Erzherzog Johann im Jahre 1830 an die neu errichtete Lehrkanzel der Chemie und Physik am Joanneum berufen wurde. --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris.

        Symphonie No. 3... Ihres Majestät der Königin Victoria von England zugeeignet... Partitur. Op. 56. Eigenthum der Verleger. Pr. 5 Thlr. 15 Ngr. [Full score].

      Leipzig Breitkopf & Härtel 1843. Octavo. Newly bound in quarter dark green morocco with matching cloth boards, dark red title label gilt to spine. 2ff. (title, publisher's statement), 240 pp. Engraved throughout.. First Edition of the "Scotch" Symphony. Not in Krause or Hoboken. Ward Jones III, 740. The "Scotch" Symphony was inspired by Mendelssohn's visit to Scotland in 1829. "In a letter to his family dated 30th July he gives an account of a visit to Holyrood Palace: 'In the evening twilight we went to-day to the palace where Queen Mary lived and loved; a little room is shown there with a winding staircase leading up to the door; up this way they came and found Rizzio in that little room... and three rooms off there is a dark corner, where they murdered him. The chapel close to it is now roofless, grass and ivy grow there, and at that broken altar Mary was crowned Queen of Scotland. Everything is broken and mouldering and the bright sky shines in. I believe I found to-day in that old chapel the beginning of my Scotch Symphony.' The romantic approach to his subject is evident in the terms of the letter just quoted and in his other letters describing the view from Arthur's Seat and his visit to the Hebrides."

        Incidents of Travel In Yucatan - 2 Volumes

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1843. 8vo, 2 volumes, xii, 459; xiii, 478 pages, complete with 124 illus and plates including 2 folding frontispiece panoramas, plus folding map. Original publisher's cloth, very bright gilt, verly light foxing to only some plates, ownership inscription to front endpapers, very good condition. A stellar set of a book that often is heavily foxed. This classic and influential work opened up a whole new area of research into the Mayan people. The plates by Catherwood are most impressive and have become famous in themselves. Considerable archeological research followed Stephens discoveries, laying the foundation (so excellent were his judgments) on which Maya archaeology has since rested. Probably the most widely read and enjoyed books on American archaeology, these recount the adventures and describe most carefully, for the first time, the antiquities that Stephens and his artist-architect companion, Catherwood, encountered in the Maya country. The man who first awakened widespread American and English interest in the Maya ruins of Central America was John Lloyd Stephens. This a sequel to the author's earlier work cut short by illness in 1841, and is much scarcer, the plates and illustrations by Catherwood are better and even more impressive than the earlier work. These add to our astonishment by portraying the gigantic ruins of still more imposing structures, erected by the vanished race of peninsular aborigines. Describes and contains the account of over forty-four ruined cities, or places in which remains or vestiges of ancient population were found. These descriptions are accompanied by full illustrations from Daguerreotype views and drawings taken on the spot by Mr. Catherwood.. First Edition. Very Good.

        Penitentiary near Pittsburgh. Zuchthaus. Penitentiaire.

      Ackermann London; Paris 1843 - Aquatint engraving with fine later hand-colouring by Karl Bodmer for the illustrated 'Travels in the Interior of North America between 1832-34' by Prince Maximilian Alexander Philipp Zu Wied-Neuweid, published in two volumes by Ackermann in London 1843. At the foot of each plate is the studio stamp, a blind embossed panel with the words 'C Bodmer/Direct'. Dimensions: 240 by 340mm. (9.5 by 13.5 inches). Vignette VI. Pittsburgh Penitentiary was considered to be very modern and an example not just in America but throughout Europe as well. Bodmer made his studies during the party's ten day stay in September 1832. From the illustrated 'Travels in the Interior of North America between 1832-34' by Prince Maximilian Alexander Philipp Zu Wied-Neuweid, published in two volumes by Ackermmann in London 1843. The finest work on American Indian life and the American Frontier, it is the result of an epic journey which took place at a time when the mass migrations of settlers and pioneers was about to alter irrevocably the unspoiled West. Karl Bodmer (1809-1893) was engaged by Prince Maximilian (already famed for his earlier explorations in Brazil) to provide a record of his travels among the Plains Indians of North America during 1833-34. His efforts show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely thorough, accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. The most important part of their travels started from St Louis, whence they proceeded up the treacherous Missouri along the line of forts established by the the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux Tribe, learning and recording their little known ceremonial dances, their powerful pride and dignity. Transfering from the 'Yellow Stone' to another steamer the 'Assiniboine', they continued to Fort Clark, studying there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow Tribes, then the Cree and Assiniboine tribes at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana. Established over a month there a cautious friendship developed with the fearsome Blackfoot Tribe. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and, especially, the people, who were often intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for capturing individual personalities, as well as forming, together with Prince Maximilian's written studies, the primary accounts of what became virtually lost cultures.

      "Printed Circular Letter Signed, ""Aberdeen,"" as Secretary for Foreign Affairs, 1 page, 8"" x 9.5"", ""Foreign Office,"" [London], April 30, 1843, addressed in manuscript on the verso to ""Edmund Molyneux Esq. &c. &c. &c."" forwarding copies [not present] of a treaty between Great Britain and Chile to suppress the slave trade. Some mild ink bleed-through from docket on verso, lightly soiled at folds on verso, else fine. Aberdeen's circular reads in full: ""I herewith transmit to you for your Information a Copy of a Treaty concluded at Santiago on the 19th of January 1839, and of an additional and explanatory Convention concluded at Santiago on the 7th of August 1841, between Her Majesty and the Republick [sic] of Chile, for the Abolition of the Slave Trade. The Ratifications of this Treaty and Convention were exchanged at Santiago on the 6th of August 1812."" In 1833, Parliament passed the British Slavery Abolition Act which ended slavery in most of the empire, save for possessions controlled by the East India Company, the island of Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and the Island of St. Helena. These three exceptions were eliminated by Parliament in 1843. The same year, the British government also concluded similar treaties to combat the slave trade with Mexico, Uruguay, and Bolivia. "
