        Hale's pleas of the crown. The history of the pleas of the crown.With references to the English and American decisions, and notes on the criminal law of America--and a life of the author. By William A. Stokes and Edward Ingersoll

      Robert H. Small, Philadelphia 1846 - Bifolium, 4to; text printed in double column on p. [1] only; addressed in manuscript to G. & C. Merriam on p. [2]; additional manuscript letter to them on p. [3]. Advertisement for a heavily revised American edition of Hale's Pleas published in 1847 in two volumes as described here. The letter to Merriam discusses the approaching publication of Harrison's Analytical Digest of all the Reported Cases Determined in the House of Lords, Second American from the Third London Edition. Price to the trade will be "most likely $7.00.You certainly will want 10 to 25 Harrisons as it is going to sell well." Small is also willing to take copies of Chitty's Pleadings from Merriam in trade.

        Grand Tour diary.

      1846-47 1846 - Octavo (217 x 136 mm), 122 pp. Contemporary brown quarter roan, dark purplish-brown morocco-grain cloth sides, with the Parisian stationer's ticket of Hippolyte Jeanbin. Spine a little worn at foot, binding rubbed at extremities, internally clean; generally in very good condition. Manuscript, with later elucidations almost certainly by the author. An entertaining Grand Tour diary, chatty and discursive. John Horatio Nelson (1825–1917) was great-nephew of the hero of Trafalgar, the second son of Thomas Bolton, who changed his surname on becoming the 2nd Earl Nelson. Born at Brickworth House, Whiteparish, Wiltshire, he was educated at Eton and Harrow, and Trinity College, Cambridge. He took holy orders and was curate (successively vicar and rector) of a number of livings in Sussex, Berkshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, and Wiltshire. The 21-year old Nelson set out on 12 November 1846. His journal opens in breezy style: he takes the train from London to Dover and then crosses by packet to Calais in the company of "an agreeable Englishman who I found to be a government agent". He purchased this notebook in Paris, at the premises of the fashionable stationer Hippolyte Jeanbin, situated at number 2 place Vendome, "au coin de la rue St. Honoré". Naturally, he takes in Notre Dame and in the evening of that day – "having seen Ld Brougham in the Cafe" – he goes to dine and is "very curiously detained after dinner by a joke of a very amusing character. These were 3 Americans sitting near me one of whom, a very clever, & well informed man had a bottle of Champagne, & for his amusement shot the cork from the bottle at an elderly gentleman that was passing the other side of the table. Curious enough the gentleman stopped, & said his name was Partridge". He fills the days with visits to the Louvre and various churches and in the evening dines at the table d'hôte. He then leaves for Chalons ("very heavy and filthy roads, & very bad horses") before taking a steam boat to Lyons. Then Arles to Marseilles and boat ("a bad one") to Genoa. Next is Lucca and Florence (including the Boboli Gardens with a "sharp frost" on the ground). He arrives in Rome on Christmas Eve ("a grand procession of the Pope"), but on Christmas Day morning is "not very well" but nevertheless hears a "very fine vespers" at Santa Maria Maggiore. A few days later he visits "some of the finest sculptors studios in Rome. and a very fine maker of cameos". The following day he and two friends take a trip out to the neoclassical Villa Torlonia where he finds the gardens "very cocknified". Nelson attends at least two balls (one at the French ambassador's, where Lord Walpole introduces him to Count Pellegrino Rossi). There is much walking, riding and driving in the Borghese Gardens and looking at pictures and churches before finally leaving the Eternal City on the morning of 8 April 1847 "with much regret". Two days later he is in Naples "which much struck me on entering from its fine & animated appearance after leaving Rome where one looks more for grandeur & silence amongst the ancient Ruins". Next day he is off to Pompeii for the first of several excursions to the site. In the Bay of Naples he witnesses fisherman bringing in a catch of "swordfish & several small tunny fish, which are very curious-looking animals". One evening Vesuvius "vomited forth to peak advantage appearing like a grand display of fireworks with streams of lava running down the sides". At the Museo Borbonico he makes a reference to his illustrious forebear Lord Nelson, when discussing the equestrian statue of Balbus: "which formerly stood at Portice [Portici] & when Ld Nelson bombarded the French who had possession of Portice a cannon shot struck off the head of the horse which was afterwards restored by Canova". He then heads for home via Florence (where there is time for "strawberry ices" in the Parco delle Cascine). Bologna and Ferrara follow (where he goes to the "opera of Nebuchadnessar" - Verdi's Nabucco, first pe

      1846. 1 S. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt mit Siegel und Adresse (Faltbrief). Gr.-4to. An Giacomo Meyerbeer in Berlin: "Mon cher Maitre. J'ai reçu les lettres que vous avez la bonté de m'envoyer. Je ne sais comment vous remercier de toutes ces marques d'amitié, et de l'accueil si charmant que vous m'avez fait pendant mon sèjour à Berlin. Tout cela restera gravé dans mon coeur et je saisirai toutes les occasions pour vous prouver que je suis apprécier les hommes de génie et de coeur tels que vous. Je ne demande qu'une chose, c'est de pouvoir vous témoigner par des faits toute l'affection que vous m'avez inspirée [...]". - Der am Pariser Konservatorium ausgebildete David musste 1833 als Anhänger des Saint-Simonismus aus Frankreich fliehen und bereiste die Welt; 1835 kehrte er in seine Heimat zurück. "Erst 1844, mit der ersten Aufführung seiner sinfonischen Ode 'Le Désert', begann sein Ruhm. Auf einer Konzertreise nach Deutschland nahm er in Bonn an den Feierlichkeiten gelegentlich der Einweihung des Beethoven-Denkmals teil.
