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]

Small folio. 152pp (including the engraved title), plus 22 plates (12 engraved and 10 aquatint views; the aquatint views by Bennett (7), Hill (2) and Gimbrede (1)). Copyright slip mounted on verso of the title. Minor foxing to the text. [WITH:] Two silk ribbons issued to commemorate the completion of the aqueduct and a 15 January 1851 letterpress handbill issued by the Board of the Croton Aqueduct Department detailing rules on the use of Aqueduct water, all laid in. Publisher's brown cloth, covers blocked in blind, upper cover lettered in gilt, rebacked to style with dark brown morocco Provenance: Morden College Blackheath (inked stamp on title); Charles Kelsall (lengthy inscription on front pastedown) Scarce work on the construction of the Croton Aqueduct, with landscape aquatint views by Bennett and Hill. In 1832, the Common Council addressed the growing city's need for a more adequate water supply, and five years later construction commenced on an aqueduct system to bring water from the Croton River in Westchester County to a reservoir at 42nd and Fifth Avenue. At the time, the 41-mile project to bring in fresh water by gravity alone was the largest such project attempted in the United States. Upon its completion in 1842, a great celebration was held in the city. "A thorough account of the progressive measures taken by the city to supply its residents with water is given in F. B. Tower, Illustrations of the Croton Aqueduct (1843). Tower was an engineer associated with the Croton project during the entire span … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pease, Joseph
[London]: W.H. Cox, 5, Great Queen Street, 1843. Letterpress broadside, 15-1/4" x 9" to sight, with address panel, cancelled stamp, and printed docketing on verso; two small early paper repairs, folds. Not examined outside of double-sided frame. Good+. Pease's scarce printed scolding of the English Anti-Slavery Convention promises that, on the following Monday, several Members of Parliament would address the Convention: "Do you want to hear what REALLY is the remedy for annihilating Slavery and the Slave Trade? Come to the Convention on second day, and there you will hear it from William Ewart, Joseph Brotherton, the Hon. Pelham Villiers, Sir George Strickland, and, we hope, Richard Cobden, Members of Parliament." A new letter from the venerable Thomas Clarkson was also promised. Pease reviews the history of abolitionism, whose inefficacy is demonstrated by the multiplying increase in the Americas' slave population. The letter is headed "Ewart, Villiers, Brotherton, Hindley, Etc., Etc., M.P.s." These were the names of Pease's allies in Parliament. Pease, an English Garrisonian abolitionist, strove mightily to end slavery in India and the West Indies. OCLC 40524301 [2- Columbia, Cornell] as of May 2018.

Art library bookplate inside front cover of each volume, ink stamp at top and bottom of each text block.. Green library buckram with new endpapers and standard gilt lettering on spines.

[United States-Great Britain Treaty]
London, 1843. 8pp. Folio. Later wrappers. Browned, middle signature loose, else very good. The goal of the 1842 treaty, usually known as the Webster- Ashburton Treaty, was to resolve the long-standing boundary disputes between the U.S. and Canada on the northeast border. Because of the British ministers misleading Webster about which maps should serve as a basis for negotiations, the U.S. received less territory than it should have. Nonetheless, the treaty resolved the dispute. Article VIII of this treaty calls on both parties to provide naval forces off the coast of Africa in order to suppress the slave trade. OCLC locates only six copies of this scarce official British printing of the Webster-Ashburton Treaty. MALLOY, p.650. OCLC 12403379.

COURNOT, A.A.
Librairie de L. Hachette, 1843. FIRST EDITION With numerous tables and a folding plate. Contemporary red pebbled cloth, stamp of the Lycée Impérial de St. Quentin (all gilt faded) on the front cover, gilt spine in compartments; silk moire endpapers, minor spotting throughout, overall a very good copy. First edition of Cournot's popular and successful work on the theory of chance occurrences. Cournot's work is "important in the history of the calculus of probability, since it examines in an original way the interpretation and foundations of this calculus and its applications. According to Cournot, occurrences in our world are always determined by a cause. But in the universe there are independent causal chains. If, at a given point in time and space, two of these chains have a common link, this coincidence constitutes the fortuitous character of the event thus engendered. Consequently, there would be an objective chance occurrence that would nevertheless have a cause. This seeming paradox would be no reflection of our ignorance" (DSB). Cournot interprets values of objective occurrences as a degree of what he calls "physical probability." He also insisted on the necessary distinction between objective and subjective probability (depending upon ignorance and resting upon the consideration of events that are deemed equiprobable). He also was able to show clearly the importance of the applications of the calculus of probability to the scientific description and explanation of human acts. Cournot (1801-1877) was a French philosopher and mathematician who also contributed to the d … [Click Below for Full Description]

MILL, John Stuart
John W. Parker, 1843. FIRST EDITION Contemporary calf, spine gilt with twin labels, small portion of head of spine of Vol. I missing, marbled edges and endpapers; blank endleaves spotted as usual in most copies, text in excellent condition. First edition of the author's most important work in pure philosophy. He here gives an account not only of logic, but of the methods of science and their applicability to social as well as purely natural phenomena. "Mill called himself a 'philosopher of experience'; he believed that all knowledge of the universe is derived from sensory observation, and he opposed those who claimed that some knowledge of synthetic truth is either innate or acquired by rational insight." Mill joined the debate over scientific method which followed on from John Herschel's 1830 publication of A preliminary discourse on the study of natural philosophy, which incorporated inductive reasoning from the known to the unknown, discovering general laws in specific facts and verifying these laws empirically. William Whewell took an opposing point of view in his 1837 History of the inductive sciences followed in 1840 by Philosophy of the inductive sciences, presenting induction as the mind superimposing concepts on facts. Laws were self-evident truths, which could be known without need for empirical verification. Mill countered Whewell's propositions in his Logic; with his methods of induction, like Herschel's, laws were discovered through observation and induction, and required empirical verification. Mill's Logic seeks to diminish the value of knowledge achieved ded … [Click Below for Full Description]

Blouet or Harou-Romain, lithographed by G. Schatter). Contemporary blue boards with original printed wrappers trimmed and laid down to covers. First and only edition. - A rare atlas with ground plans and front and side views of projected and existing prisons in France, England and other countries, including fine plates of treadmills and similar machines for "labour of the hardest and most servile kind". The designs show "quasi-Benthamite architectural cellular models [.] A compilation of penal architectural plans stemming from Sagra's 1835 tour of the principal ultilitarian model prisons in the United States, as well as some in Western Europe" (Santiago-Valles, Penal Forms, in: McCoy/Scarano [eds.], Colonial Crucible [2009], p. 87-94, at p. 90). A first series of 25 plates contains sketches for numerous different designs for buildings for cellular confinement, usually a ground plan on one leaf and profile views on the next. Most are identified only as "provincial prisons" with between 12 and 126 cells, some of them dome-shaped; three others are identified as projects for prisons for the cities of Caen, Madrid and Rome. The second series of 14 plates shows penitentiary institutions mostly in England and Scotland: ground plans of the Westminster and Millbank prisons, the treadmill in Gloucester, a "tread-hand-wheel" in Petworth, crank-mill (constructed by Richmond & Son Engineers, Chelmsford) with an ergometer, plan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Final plate volume IV Ancient Bridge Chapoo from the London Printing and Publishing Company edition. Volume I & II: 72 + 96 + 72pp. Volume III & IV: 68 + 56pp, index, occasional foxing. Both volumes recased in original full leather, decorative gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Binding has had some professional work including recolouring of leather where it has been worn or abraded. Some foxing on the plates mainly evident in the margins, damp stain on lower margin near the gutter of most leaves but not affecting the text or the images, neat pencilled numerals on the reverse of the plates, text generally very clean, engraved title Volume I heavily foxed. 28 x 21.5cm. Probably the most popular work on China published in the 19th century this well illustrated work was issued in a number of editions in England, the United States, France and Germany. Interestingly neither the author Reverend Wright nor illustrator Thomas Allom ever visited China. The Reverend Wright made extensive use of the resources of the British Library to write the extensive text, drawing on earlier European accounts of China, while the prolific illustrator of topographical picture books of the time, Thomas Allom (1804-1872) contributed the illustrations which bear striking similarities to earlier views of China including some by William Alexander.

List, Friedrich (ed.)
[Augsburg/Stuttgart, Cotta], 1843. 8vo. Issues 1-27 (1 January through 3 July 1843). 544 pp. Contemporary marbled boards. The first half year of this important German weekly, "the most influential periodical of the protectionists" (Hamerow). The German Customs Union, or "Zollverein", had been formed in 1833 "largely due to [List's] enthusiastic advocacy of the abolition of internal tariffs" (PMM 311). List considered the principle of free trade detrimental to the national interest, to which the immediate interests of groups and individuals should be submitted. To List the nation was an entity whose aim is not the creation of wealth by international exchange, but the development of its own economic and productive sources. "These views coincided so exactly with the reawakening of German nationalism that List's [1841 publication, "Das nationale System der politischen Oekonomie",] caused a great sensation when it was published, and it remained for seventy years the theoretic gospel of the advocates of protectionist tariffs in Germany, Britain and the United States" (PMM). - Binding rubbed, extremeties bumped. Some foxing throughout; a few leaves loosened. Stamps of the "Staatswissenschaftliches Seminar der Universität Basel" (cancelled); a gift from the German linguist Otto Behaghel (1854-1936) with handwritten provenance note on flyleaf. Diesch 8896.

Adam, Victor.
Folio (425 x 585 mm). 36 hand-coloured lithographic plates in 6 livraisons, each preserving its original printed wrapper. Contemp. black quarter shagreen with decorated flat spine, title stamped in gilt on upper cover with a crowned monogram. Extremly rare ensemble of 36 superb horse plates drawn from nature and lithographed by the noted equestrian painter Victor Adam (1801-66), finely enhanced with watercolour and gum arabic by the artist himself. The plates were produced in 1843 with the special permission of the Marquis de Strada, stablemaster to the French King, when Louis-Philippe created a stud in the park of Saint-Cloud for the stallions he had received as gifts from the Viceroy of Egypt and other Middle Eastern princes. A contemporary witness to the event, the conte Camille de Montalivet reflected after the fall of the monarchy in his "Le Roi Louis-Philippe et sa liste civile" (1850): "At the end of the year 1842, Mehmet Ali sent to the King seven of his purest stallions, chosen by himself and coming from the most precious Arab race, the Nedjdi species. From the first months of 1843, Louis-Philippe founded an Arab stud in the park of Saint-Cloud, providing one of the most beautiful equestrian centers ever seen. The first tests soon had the best result, and new stallions arrived from Muscat and Morocco". - Muhammad Ali (1769-1849), generally considered the founder of modern Egypt, was Khedive of Egypt from 1804 to his death. A friend of France and an admirer of Napoleon, he had previously offered to King Louis-Philippe (in 1833) the obelisk which graces the Place de … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antiporta allegorica in litografia a colori da invenzione di Roberto Focosi e 26 tavole in litografia f.t. colorate à la gomme raffiguranti località, costumi e tradizioni della Sardegna, costituenti una selezione dell'apparato iconografico della prima edizione (che era stata pubblicata dal Bocca di Torino nel 1841 adorna di 60 tavole). Testo entro filetto tipografico. Fioriture normali. Bell'esemplare. Seconda edizione, ancora più rara della prima, sconosciuta al Piloni e con le tavole con colorazione ancora più vivida. Seppur poco stimata per la poca originalità dei testi, che derivano dalle precedenti opere del Lamarmora, del Manno e del Cetti, e per la discutibile fedeltà delle illustrazioni, il libro del Baldassarre è ritenuto la più bella opera, sotto il prospetto iconografico, dell'intera letteratura sulla Sardegna ed ha il merito di essere la prima copiosamente illustrata edita in Italia (molte tavole furono disegnate da Lorenzo Pedroni, uno dei pionieri della litografia in Piemonte).

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 ope … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOLYAI, Farkas.
Kali Simon, Marosvasarhely, 1843. An exceptionally fine copy, in the original boards, of Bolyai’s work on the foundations of mathematics, and the last of the great works of Farkas Bolyai. It is in part based on the author’s Az arithmethica eleje published in 1830 and on the second volume (the first volume being on geometry) of his magnum opus the Tentamen juventutem studiosam elementa matheseos purae, 1832-33, to which it frequently refers. This work enlarges and extends Bolyai’s investigations into the principles of mathematics. Farkas Bolyai (1775-1856) was a close friend of Gauss and regarded by the latter as the only man who fully understood Gauss’ metaphysics of mathematics. "He can be taken as a precursor of Gottlob Frege, Pasch, and Georg Cantor; but, as with many pioneers, he did not enjoy the credit that accrued to those that followed him" (DSB). He had worked on the parallel postulate and the possibilities of a non-Euclidean geometry from his earliest days as a mathematician in Göttingen, and had corresponded with Gauss on the subject, even sending him a manuscript entitled Theoria parallelarum, but it was his son János who was to achieve the breakthrough. The text refers frequently to Gauss and Lagrange, along with other mathematicians such as Maclaurin and Taylor.Bolyai began this work in 1829 but only a short introduction and an excerpt were printed (in 1830) because he was under pressure with preparing for publication the Tentamen. At the time when this work was published, Bolyai was in despair as neither his son Janos nor he himself had received any recogniti … [Click Below for Full Description]

A rare first edition of this Charles Dickens novel with even rarer special publisher's binding in an original state, published by Chapman & Hall 1843. The only one of it's type we have come across. Brown illustrated covers with mild wear to the extremities, believed to be an original publisher's special binding, perhaps a presentation copy. Spine with gilt lettering with top quarter missing. We have decided not to repair this book as it is highly valuable and sought after in it's first state, so we have left it for the buyer to choose how they wish to proceed with repair work. All the fist issue points as noted in Smith 2, 4; with 'Stave 1'. Coloured frontispiece and three further plates by John Leech, all hand colored as issued - the first and only time Dickens used coloured illustrations, in his desire to make the book highly valued. It proved to be very expensive so was never repeated. Plus woodcut black and white text illustrations. No advertisments at the end of the book. Gilt coloured page ends. Coloured marble end papers with gilt edging in very good state. Wreath surrounding the title with red and blue type. Loose page ribbon.

First collected edition of Bentham's works, compiled under the supervision of his disciple and editor, John Bowring, assisted by John Hill Burton, who wrote the lengthy "Introduction to the study of Bentham's works". The collected works were first issued in 22 parts, at 9 shillings each, between the years 1838 and 1843. "The Works are not complete, for Bowring... refused to reprint the four attacks on religion, while the posthumous Deontology, being still in print, was also left out. Moreover, he made practically no attempt to publish any of the manuscript material bequeathed to him by Bentham; he was probably overwhelmed by the 173 portfolios containing upwards of 300 sheets each, much of it in Bentham's own execrable handwriting, the value of which he was not really competent to appreciate. Doubtless he salved his conscience by bequeathing this inheritance to University College for future students to quarry into and to publish.
