BODMER, Karl.
Ackermann London; Paris. 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'. Tableau 4. Above Jefferson City, Missouri, on April 18, 1833, ten days upstream from St. Louis, the steamboat carrying Prince Maximilian and Karl Bodmer encountered an area of the river so densely packed with driftwood that it could go no further. Maximilian recorded in his journal entry for the day that they stopped for several hours, while members of the crew attempted to cut through the snags, and others on the riverbank pulled the boat along by large hawsers or ropes. Unfortunatley that afternoon, the Yellow-Stone ran aground again on a large sandbar and was forced to remain stationary, overnight. The next morning a party of traders in a flatboat from nearby Fort Osage arrived to offload part of the ship's cargo to lighten its draft. Bodmer waded ashore to make this sketch of the scene. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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'. Tableau 6. This almost apocalyptic view illustrates the treacherous waters of the Missouri River. The river was the longest in the country and was considered the most hazardous of all the western rivers to navigate. Edging their way between the rafts of driftwood became increasingly difficult for the travelers aboard the steamer Yellow Stone, as she made her way up river toward the mouth of the River Platte. On 26 April 1833 she passed the mouth of the Nemaha River and again encountered snags and sandbars. In his journal for that date Maximilian noted that `For a long time we could not get away from this and often ran aground but finally with a little force of the engine we moved on'. 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.

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.

HAYASHI, Razan [& Gaho]
Two parts in one vol. 60 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. aubergine patterned wrappers (covers a little defective), orig. block-printed title label on upper cover (label soiled & rubbed), new stitching. Osaka: Harimaya Risuke, 1843 [colophon of the first part is dated 1667; the second part is dated 1816; & the colophon on the rear pastedown is dated 1843].Second edition of two classic works of Japanese bibliography; the texts were essential guides. Razan Hayashi (1583-1657), was a Japanese neo-Confucian scholar, diplomat, translator of Sinitic texts, and shogunal adviser. He, and his third son Gaho, wrote and edited a number of important chronicles and histories of Japan. One of Razan's descendants, Akira Hayashi, was the chief Japanese negotiator in dealing with Admiral Perry and signed the Treaty of Kanagawa.Both of these works were jointly written by Razan and Gaho (who uses the pen name "Koyorinshi"in the first part). "The earliest published books about books were Hayashi Razan's Keiten daisetsu (1667) and his son Gaho's Nihon shojaku ko (1665), which gave brief summaries of a selection of Chinese and Japanese texts respectively. Although not explicitly stated, Razan and Gaho had these works published as education aids to guide inexperienced readers, perhaps particularly those with teachers who were trying to find their way through the bewildering variety of printed works currently available."-Kornicki, The Book in Japan, p. 441.It should be noted that Razan died from the shock of a fire which totally destroyed his house and enormous library of books and manuscripts. … [Click Below for Full Description]

For Kierkegaard repetition is to be likened to recollection, and as he himself states on the first page of the work: "You can say whatever you wish about it [repetition], it will play a very important role in recent philosophy; for Repetition is a decisive expression for what "Recollection" was for the Greeks. Just like when they taught that all perception is a recollection, so the new philosophy will teach that all of life is a repetition." Himmelstrup 53.

BACKHOUSE, James
London: Hamilton, Adams and Co, 1843. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Reinserted in the original blind-decorated green cloth, retaining the original yellow endpapers; spine reinforced with cloth on the verso; endpaper hinges reinforced with matching paper; cloth a little mottled, marked, rubbed, and sunned on the spine, with minor wear to the extremities; some foxing to the plates, with a light marginal stain to three of them (just touching the image surface of the folding plate); head of the stub of each map reinforced with a small piece of cloth (very old but neat repairs); a very good copy with occasional pencilling (but see below). Provenance: Johannes Leigh-Jones, Sydney; later (1948) Frederick Walter ('Doc Robbie') Robinson (1888-1971), University of Queensland (the founder of the University's Fryer Library and one of the instigators of the John Oxley Library, now part of the State Library of Queensland). The occasional pencilled corrections, emphases and trenchant comments are in his hand. James Backhouse (1794-1869), naturalist and Quaker missionary, travelled throughout Australia with George Washington Walker. 'From their arrival at Hobart Town in February 1832 until their departure from Fremantle in February 1838, they visited from house to house in most of the scattered Australian settlements and found much demand for their services. During their three years in Van Diemen's Land (1832-34) Lieutenant-Governor (Sir) George Arthur found many useful tasks for them.

Allom, Thomas, Esq. (Artist); Wright, The Rev. G. N., M.A. (Author)
London and Paris: Fisher, Son, & Co, 1843. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good +. Allom, Thomas. Four volumes bound in two, quarto size, approx. 364 pp. Draughtsmen, architect, and artist Thomas Allom (1804-1872) is probably best known for this title, which was the most popular and best known work on this subject at the time. Public interest in the Far East was intense at the middle of the 19th century as both China and Japan were both largely closed to Europeans, and this interest was likely intensified by the end of the First Opium War (1839-1842) which forced China to open additional ports and ceded Hong Kong Island to the British Empire (Japan would also be forced to partially open itself to Europeans ten years later, with Perry's expedition). Allom never visited China himself, although in 1834 he traveled to Turkey, Anatolia, Syria and Palestine. These experiences equipped him well to illustrate this work by interpreting drawings from other artists, including copies of Chinese drawings from Sir George Stauntons' collection by Captain Stoddart and others. It deals mainly with Peking, Nanking, the Southeast and South, especially concerning locations where treaty ports were established after the Opium War. Also included is "Life of Kang-He, Emperor of China", for which the Editor credits the Rev. Mr. [Karl Friedrich August] Gutzlaff (1803-1851), the first Lutheran missionary to China and one of the first Protestant missionaries in China to wear Chinese clothing. ___DESCRIPTION: Contemporary half red straight-grain morocco, embossed decorative red cloth cov … [Click Below for Full Description]

The work constitutes Kierkegaard's religious works, which supplement his theological and philosophical ones.As the two, three, and four upbuilding discourses were also published separately, as they were issued, copies of the "Eighteen Upbuilding Discourses" in the original publisher's binding are of the utmost scarcity, and this is the first time that we see one.

COURNOT, A. A. - ["THE ONLY LAW OF CHANCE"]
Paris, Hachette, 1843. 8vo. Bound in a beautiful contemporary half calf binding with four raised bands and elegant gilding to spine. Fine, elegant super ex-libris to front board (Lycée Louis le Grand, Université de France), inside blindtamped border. A bit of occasional brownspotting. An excellent and very beautiful copy. (4), VIII, 448 pp. + one plate. ¶ The rare first edition of the work in which the theory of probability is stated clearly and completely for the first time, making it of the utmost importance to mathematics, logic, philosophy, economics, and philosophy of science.The work "is important in the theory of probability, since it examines in an original way the interpretation and foundations of this calculus and its applications." (D.S.B. III:451). Cournot insists on a clear distinction between "objective possibility" and "subjective possibility", and to that he himself adds that which he calls "philosophical probability". "Of course, Cournot neither solved nor satisfactorily stated the problem of the logical foundation of the calculus of probability. But he had the distinction of having been the first to dissociate -in a radical way- various ideas that still were obscure, thus opening the way for deeper and more systematic research..." (D.S.B. III:451).Whereas Bernoulli was the first to actually formulate the theory of probability often called "the principle of moral certainty", Cournot, in the present work, is the first to suggest that it provides a bridge between the mathematics of probability and the real world. It is Cournot's theory of probability that Bor … [Click Below for Full Description]
