        (ASL) re: Legislative Council Chamber - Autograph Document Signed Thomas Chandler Haliburton

      1846. 1st. No binding. Good. Autographed document signed. 7.25" x 9" 1 page 2 sidedLegislative Council Chamber. 26 January 1846. Instructing members of the legislature to attend the next session.Note on top left was missing paper with a tissue replacement now. The signature had a paper tear through part of the last name and along a fold, both now repaired. Good condition otherwise.Pencil writing on bottom portion unreadable. "Haliburton was the first Canadian author to acquire an international reputation, and the first colonial writer to be awarded an honorary degree by Oxford (1858). Born and educated in Nova Scotia, he was called to the bar in 1820, practiced law in Annapolis, and in 1826 was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Nova Scotia. In 1829 he was appointed a judge of the Court of Common Pleas, and in 1841 he was promoted to the Supreme Court in Nova Scotia. He retired and moved to England in 1856. Haliburton was the first writer who used the American dialect, and according to Artemus Ward, founded the American school of humour." (DNB).

        Typee: a Peep at Polynesian Life. During a Four Months' Residence in a Valley of the Marquesas; the Revised Edition, with a Sequel

      New York: Wiley and Putnam. 1846. Revised American edition, with the sequel, first printing, second state. Two parts in one. Small octavo. 308pp. Contemporary half straight grain morocco gilt and cloth, with the glazed pink paper label of "J.H. Oliphant, Book-binder. Oswego, N.Y." on the front pastedown. Contemporary penciled owner's name, lacks front fly, rubbing at the joints and extremities, but still a pleasing very good copy. Melville's first book, his dramatic account of his adventures in the South Seas was immediately popular, but he was accused of fictionalizing events (these accusations spurred, in part, by the book's disdain for missionaries). Melville's shipmate, Toby Greene, read one such critical review and was prompted to write his own short account verifying most of Melville's tale. Consequently, this edition deletes some passages critical of missionaries, but adds "The Story of Toby" vindicating the author of deceit. BAL 13654. .

Joseph Wolff (1795-1862), missionario britannico, viaggiò a lungo in Oriente a partire dal 1821 visitando l'Egitto, la Palestina, la Mesopotamia, la Persia, la Crimea e l'Impero Ottomano. Nel 1831 iniziò una nuova missione in Asia Minore, Armenia, Kurdistan, raggiungendo Bokhara e quindi l' India e il Kashmere; nel 1835 riparti' per il Sinai, lo Yemen, l'India e da Bombay si imbarcò per gli Stati Uniti.

        Etablissement Anglais at Port-Essington... Etablissement Anglais at Port-Essington

      Paris, 1846. Tinted lithograph, 260 x 390 mm, fine condition, mounted. The original lithograph from Dumont d'Urville's Voyage au Pole Sud... showing the English settlement at Port Essington.Dumont d'Urville's instruction from King Louis-Philippe was to explore the South Pole. Up to this time France had taken no part in Antarctic discovery which had been dominated by the English. Dumont d'Urville left Toulon on September 7, 1837 with two ships, the "Astrolabe" and the "Zelee", on a voyage that was to become dogged by mishap and illness. Goupil was one of two artists that accompanied D'Urville, and was unfortunately one of many to succumb to dysentery; he died in Hobart in 1840 at the age of 26.Port Essington was the site of the third abortive attempt to establish a settlement on the northern coast of Australia. It was originally surveyed in 1818 by Captain Phillip Parker King who named the sheltered inlet after his great friend Vice Admiral Sir William Essington. In 1838 Captain Bremer made his second attempt of a settlement at Port Essington having already been there in 1824 and had to move on due to a lack of water. This time a location on Barrow Bay was found to have an adequate water supply and a settlement and fortification was built called Fort Victoria. Dumont d'Urville visited this new settlement in 1840 and it was then that Goupil recorded the struggling settlement in this his only landscape on Australian soil.

        [ artifact, History of Computing ] Fuller's Time Telegraph and Palmer's Computing Scale

      Massachusetts: John E. Fuller, 1846. Boards. Very Good. 10 7/8 inches by 11 inches. 1/4 inches thick. Pressed paper construction with lithographed overlay, and edges with decorative thin leather borders with gilt decoration, the whole lacquered. Each "side" has a rotating volvelle with scales, and a recessed metal thumb on the disc which can be used for rotation. A metal rivet through the center holds the 2 discs in place. There is some minor loss to the gold stamped decorated black border finish, and one corner is bumped. There is an ink inscription 'Property of L. Derr' on the Fuller side. Both sides rotate as they should, but the Palmer side is curled outward from it's hole as if slightly too large. There is a fairly uniform darkening/soiling to both sides. Lacks the often missing cloth enclosure and printed instruction guide. Boards. Palmer's Computing Scale is one of the most desirable artifacts for those who collect early American Slide Rules and calculating devices. It was designed by Mr. Aaron Palmer and Mr. George G Smith in early 1841. A prototype was shown in early 1842, and later in Boston in the fall of 1843. Bobby Feazel notes that the Scale's first commercial appearance was in January 1844. This first circular rule had a front volvelle, and instructions printed on the rear. Feazel further notes Mr. John E. Fuller purchased the copyrights to the device from Palmer, and in 1845 copyrighted the Time Telegraph. This second device was affixed to the rear of Palmer's Computing Scale, and "how to" instructions were provided in a separate cloth case with foldout and instructions (not present here). There were various versions of this device produced from 1845 to 1871. Our example was published in 1845/46 (further differentiation of the date is impossible without the instruction book). This example has the Palmer slide rule showing a copyright of 1843, and the Fuller side copyright 1845. See Origins of Cyberspace #302 and Journal of the Oughtred Society Vol 3 No 1 and Vol 4 no 1 for more information.

More importantly, they are the only edition to be produced with fine original hand-colouring.
