        New South Wales. Proposed Overland Route to Port Essington

      Sydney: William John Row, Government Printer, 1843. Foolscap folio, with a fine hand-coloured lithographic map; fine in recent brown half calf. With the remarkable Sydney-printed map. An excellent Sydney-printed report of signal importance to inland exploration, including a most attractive lithographic map of Australia by William Baker of King Street.The proposal to discover the overland route had been approved by a committee that included John Dunmore Lang and W.C. Wentworth in October 1843, and the present report is based on their findings. In support, the Committee prints any number of letters and extracts from key figures including Admiral Bremer, Captain John Macarthur RN (a brother of the pastoralist Hannibal, who served as Acting Commandant at Port Essington), Major Mitchell, the northern specialist George Windsor Earl, his Malay servant Shadrach Phillippus, and the author of an important coastal circumnavigation account Thomas Braidwood Wilson. Of course, the proposal is most famous for encouraging Ludwig Leichhardt to establish his own privately-funded expedition, which would ultimately be published in 1846.The work was printed by the Government printer Row, who had trained at the Australian. The marvellous map is by Baker, an Irish free settler who arrived in Sydney in 1835 and set himself up as a lithographic and copperplate printer, before taking on much more government work in the 1840s. He is perhaps best known as the publisher of the long-running weekly serial Heads of the People.

        On the calorific effects of magneto-electricity, and on the mechanical value of heat.

      Taylor, London 1843 - Mechanical Equivalent of HeatJoule, James Prescott (1818-1889). On the calorific effects of magneto-electricity, and on the mechanical value of heat. In: London, Edinburgh and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, 3rd series, 23 (1843), pp. 263-276, 347-355, 435-455.

Binder's stamp on rear paste-down.First Edition, complete series of three parts. Dibner, Heralds of Science 158. "Experimental proof of the mechanical equivalent of heat for physical phenomena" (Printing and the Mind of Man p. 196). Joule demonstrated that the conversion of heat into force, and vice versa, takes place at a fixed rate. This discovery led to two conclusions: first, that heat is a form of energy; and second, that within a given system, the sum total of energy is both constant and convertible. Joule's work, along with that of Mayer and Helmholtz, was fundamental to the establishment of the principle of the conservation of energy. DSB. Norman 1179. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Ledger, copy book, and commonplace book for this early Hanging Rock Iron Region settler in Jackson County (later Vinton County), Ohio

      Clinton, Jackson County, Ohio, ca. 1828 to 1843. Worn, toned, somewhat spotted; in good condition.. Rough blue paper wrappers, approx. 13 x 8.5 inches, [40] unlined pages (first leaf detached, two leaves somewhat substantially clipped with some intentional loss). An exuberantly utilitarian piece of pioneer manuscript that ranges from trades for lard and days of work to copying out practical jokes or how to tell your fortune with cards, evidently kept by George Tarr (2/27/1809-3/2/1873), an early Ohio farmer born to Virginia natives John Tarr and Rebecca Zinn Tarr in Clinton Township, Jackson County (later Vinton County), Ohio in the southeastern Iron Region of the state. The manuscript is labeled in part in ink on the front wrapper, "George Tarr Ledger," and the ledger appears to have been neatly set up in 1828 either as an exercise book in bookkeeping or to record trades of work and goods between neighbors, but it was infrequently used until the early 1840s when Tarr begins with a legible but much less careful hand to debit and credit in great detail trades of goods and work with neighbors of which a partial list includes Caleb Sharp, John Frazee, Richard Habron, Samuel G. Washburn, various members of the "Zin" family, and a genealogical bombshell whose name is here given as Absalom Howdinshals (but who appears in various records as Absalom Houdeshelt, Houdesheldt, Howdysheldt, and Hendeshelt). Various census reports and public records place Tarr's farm and these various neighbors fairly precisely in Clinton Township, and this detailed ledger gives a deep if necessarily evocative look at the agricultural economy of the region--partnerships in wheat, payments for work in rye, purchases of beef, pork, hay, days of work, etc., but also butchering, blacksmithing work (making nails, sharpening a mattock), purchasing jugs and stoneware, drafts of notes for cattle, etc. But aside from the narly daily utility of this piece, Tarr also used this volume as a commonplace book of medical recipes and other curious texts, including a recipe for ink and one for an evident sort of calamine lotion, one for the "Cure for the Bite of any snake" (green horehound juice, a horehound poultice and a white ash bark bandage), as well as a remedy for rheumatism and one to "moderate puking in a pregnant woman" (peppermint, whisky and Columbo bitters--this recipe apparently taken from Gunn's Domestic Medicine). Even better perhaps than moderating puking are the recipes here included for two practical jokes. One of the jokes will leave a person with blackface: "Take a few nut-galls, bruise them to a verry fine powder, which strew nicely upon a towel, then put a little brown coperass [i.e. copperas, or iron sulfate] into a basin of water; this will soon dissolve, and leave the water perectly [for perfectly] transparent. After any person has washed in this water and wiped with the towel on which the galls have been strewed his hands and face will immediately become black but in a few days by washing with soap they will become clean." The other joke involves salt petre, cream of tartar, and sulphur punded together into a powder that you may put "in a paper in your pocket; you may then, at any time you please convey a grain in to a pipe of tobacco, and when it takes fire, it will [have] the report of a musket, but not break the pipe; or you may put as much as will lay upon your nail in any place upon little bits of paper and setting fire to it there will be the report of so many great guns but it will not produce any bad effects." Tarr also outlines a trick involving melting steel and antimony, as well as hints on how to decorate glasses using hot walnut sticks or feather tips, while the most extensive extract (nearly a page and a half) is "The art of Fortune telling by Cards," which appears to be copied verbatim from a text located in the expected online searches in two locations--in the English publication Astrologer's Magazine and Philosophical Miscellany (evidently also known as The Conjuror's Magazine) for August, 1791 and later in the cheap book Amateur Amusements by Professor Lorento (NY: Hurst & Co., copyright 1878). The transmission of this sort of amusement in the Ohio Valley--from London journal to rough commonplace ledger--seems somehow characteristic of the transmission of American popular culture from high to low.

        Secrets merveilleux de la magie naturelle & cabalistique du Petit Albert, traduits exactement sur l'original Latin, intitule: Alberti Parvi Lucii libellus de mirabilibus naturae arcanis

      Paris: B. Renaud, 1843. RARE EDITION. Uncut copy in original printed wrappers with lithograph of an astronomer and an observatory on back cover. IN VERY GOOD CONDITION (wrappers trifle worn or soiled). Duodecimo. 144 pp. With woodcut frontispiece and 5 folding woodcut plates STRANGE AND WONDERFUL GRIMOIRE, AN EXCELLENT UNCUT COPY IN ORIGINAL CONDITION. * This is very scarce edition of the so-called "Little Albert" (in difference to Albert the Great), being a well-known collection of magical absurdities and impossiblilities, of which there are numerous reprints. It is claimed that this text was written by Albertus Magnus in 1272, in French. * The preface states: "Voici une nouvelle edition du Livres des merveilleux Secrets du Petit Albert, connu en Latin sous le titre d'Alberte Parvi Lucii, Libellus de Mirabilibus Naturae Arcanis. L'auteur a qui on l'attribue, a ete un de ces grands-hommmes qui par le peuple ignorant ont ete accusez de magie. C'etait autrefois le sort de tous les grands esprits qui possedaient quelque chose d'extraordinaire dans les sciences, de les traiter de magiciens. C'est peut-etre par cette raison, que le petit tresor est devenu si rare, parce que les superstitieux ont fait scrupule de s'en servir; il s'est presque comme perdu, car une personne distinguee dans le monde a eu la curiosite (a ce qu'on assure) d'en offrir plus de mille florins pour un seul exemplaire, encore ne l'a-t-on pu decouvrir que depuis peu dans la bibliotheque d'un tres-grand homme, qui l'a bien voulu donner pour ne plus priver le public d'un si riche tresor." * "C'est parmi les livres populaires, le plus celebre et peut-etre le plus absurde... Il est tout naturel que le livre des secrets ait ete attribue a Albert le Grand, car ce docteur, tres savant pour son epoque, eut, parmi ces contemporains, la reputation d'etre sorcier. Le Livre des Secrets du Petit Albert est moins complet, mais le fonds reste le meme" (Brunet). Cf. Ferguson, Bibliotheca Chemica p. 17 & Ferguson, "Bibliographical notes on Books of Secrets," Part IV.

        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

      HMSO for the Colonial Office, London 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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).

Wait was condemned to be hanged, but the efforts of his wife procured a stay of execution, and he was finally one of the many Canadian rebels to be transported for life to Van Diemen's Land.His wife continued her heroic efforts on his behalf, and he escaped from Van Diemen's Land in a small boat; after many adventures he finally reached Grand Rapids, where his wife was living as a school teacher. She died soon after, worn out by her efforts to secure her husband's release.

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.
