        Nouvelles études et expériences sur les Glaciers actuels (Parte I unica mai pubblicata del "Systeme Glaciaire"). Atlas.

      Paris, Masson, 1847. in-folio (mm 485x340), 9 litografie ( I-IX di cui 1 a colori e due a doppia pagina) e 3 litografie a colori di C. Castan (num A-C), brossura editoriale in mezza tela verde, fregi e titolo entro cornice al piatto anteriore, al centro di quello posteriore motto "Alere Flamma" (lievi tracce d'usura e qualche macchia). Le planches sono vedute, spaccati e tavole tecniche interamente dedicate al ghiacciaio dell'Aar. Questo rarissimo Album è il risultato degli studi che Agassiz compì sulle Alpi bernesi, dove costruì una capanna e vi abitò per un po' di tempo per avere la possibilità di compiere delle ricerche sulla conformazione e sui movimenti del ghiaccio. Parte delle sue osservazioni confluirono nel 1840 negli "Etudes sur les glaciers", di cui il presente Album è evidentemente una integrazione. La sua estrema rarità, di gran lunga superiore a quella degli Etudes, è dovuta al fatto che l'autore, mentre l'opera era in fase di pubblicazione, partì definitivamente per gli Stati Uniti e non fece mai più ritorno in Europa. Agassiz quindi non potè più seguirne la stampa, la diffusione e il completamento editoriale (essendo questa una "première partie") rendendo questo Album quasi introvabile. In perfetto stato di conservazione, assai fresco.. Perret 0020..

        Narrative of the Surveying Voyage of H.M.S. Fly, commanded by Captain F.P. Blackwood, R.N. in Torres Strait, New Guinea, and other islands of the Eastern Archipelago.

      T. & W. Boone, London 1847 - Two volumes, octavo, two folding maps and 19 plates, three line-engraved views, and four natural history plates, textual illustrations, with various publisher's advertisements including for Leichhardt & Stokes; a very attractive set in the original and unfaded blue-grey blind-stamped cloth. First edition: a very good copy, its original binding in fine condition, of this important surveying voyage of coastal Australia. Jukes' account is particularly significant for his description of the Queensland coast, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Torres Strait, and includes an impressively detailed map of the north-east coast from Endeavour River north to New Guinea.The Fly, Captain Blackwood, sailed from Falmouth on 11 April 1842 with the cutter Bramble. Jukes sailed as naturalist to the expedition, and with his captain's consent wrote the official narrative. The survey of Torres Strait and of the Great Barrier Reef, as well as the various New Guinea explorations, were all of great importance. The proper scientific understanding of the Barrier Reef could not begin until the completion of the survey, which Jukes charted for the first time in detail. Jukes' own close examination of the Reef was also significant, and his chapter on the subject 'is an invaluable record. His observations strongly supported Darwin's theory of the formation of coral reefs?' (Davidson). Indeed, Jukes' interest in coral formation is neatly summarised by the account's terrific opening line, 'I landed for the first time in my life on a coral island.'Ingleton notes: 'the Admiralty decided in 1841 to have the Great Barrier Reefs explored and to have the gaps surveyed in order that some means might be devised for marking the most eligible of these openings, in order that they could be recognised in due time and passed through in comparative safety? The expedition was noteworthy for being the first to be despatched to Australia on a purely surveying mission?' (Charting a Continent, pp. 61-66).Twelve of the plates are notably fine aquatints by Harden S. Melville, who published his own illustrated work on the voyage (Sketches in Australia and the Adjacent Islands, 1849). Provenance: Private collection (Australia). Some very light spotting but in fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Voyage of Discovery and Research in the Southern and Antarctic Regions, during the Years 1839-43

      London: John Murray, 1847. A good set, skilfully reset in its original cloth bindings; old owner's name abraded from front pastedowns.. Octavo, two volumes, with a total of eight lithographic plates (including frontispieces), eight maps (three folding), and chapter titles with attractive steel-engraved vignettes after sketches by Hooker; original dark blue-green grained cloth, ship vignette in gilt on front covers and a capstan design in blind on rear covers. First edition. Ross's account of his two voyages in the Erebus and Terror is 'one of the most important works in the history of Antarctic exploration' (Hill). In the course of the expedition Ross reached the highest latitude yet attained, determined the position of the Magnetic Pole and travelled within 160 miles of it. Ross was accompanied by the eminent botanist Joseph Dalton Hooker who contributed significantly to the study of Australian flora and later became a loyal friend of Charles Darwin; Hooker contributed many illustrations to the present volume. Of special interest is a large and dramatic folding lithograph of the Antarctic ice shelf, executed with a sense of scale dwarfing the vessels Erebus and Terror. This wonderful plate is followed by a large and finely engraved folding chart of the ice shelf marked with the surveys of Ross' expedition and the United States Exploring expedition under Captain Wilkes.The Antarctic bibliographer Michael Rosove notes that the publisher, John Murray, continued to issue the first edition for many years with the advertisements at the rear of the second volume updated as further copies were sent for binding and distribution to booksellers. The advertisements for this set are dated January 1847, indicating its earliest issue. Provenance: Private collection (Australia)

        LETTERS ON THE MASONIC INSTITUTION

      Boston: T. R. Martin, 1847. Adams was the sixth president of the United States. After serving a single term as president, he was elected to the House of Representatives for nine consecutive terms. While serving in the House, Adams ran an unsuccessful campaign for Governor of Massachusetts in 1833 as a candidate of the Anti-Masonic Party (formed in 1828). Letters on the Masonic Institution was published shortly before Adams' death in 1848 at the age of 80. Excerpt: "It is now twenty years since there sprung up in the United States an earnest and at times a vehement discussion, of the nature and effect of the bond entered into by those citizens who join the society of Free and Accepted Masons. The excitement which arose in consequence of the disclosures then made, had the effect, at least for a time, if not permanently, to check the further spread of that association. The legislative power of some of the States was invoked, and at last actually interposed, to prevent the administration of extra-judicial oaths, including of course all such as were constantly taken in the Masonic Order. This was the furthest point which the opposition ever reached." Bound in embossed black cloth, black spine with gilt lettering. Image at left is of the title page. 284 pages.8vo., 284pp.; VG-; bound in embossed black cloth, black spine with gilt lettering; bumping to corners; what appears to be bookworm marks on the hinges and spine, does not impact text; top edge of head and lower edge of tail missing; mild scattered foxing; inscription dated 1853 on ffep; shelved case 1.

        The mathematical analysis of logic, being an essay towards a calculus of deductive reasoning.

      Macmillan, Barclay & Macmillan, Cambridge 1847 - First edition, very rare in commerce, of Boole?s first book, the birth of modern symbolic logic and the first presentation of ?Boolean algebra? ? this is the copy of the great economist John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946). ?Boole?s work also contains what Bertrand Russell called the greatest discovery of the nineteenth century: the nature of pure mathematics? (OOC). ?Self-taught mathematician George Boole (1815?1864) published a pamphlet in 1847 ? The Mathematical Analysis of Logic ? that launched him into history as one of the nineteenth century?s most original thinkers? (Introduction to the CUP reprint). This copy is interleaved throughout and has many pencil annotations, both in the text itself and on the inserted blanks. We have not been able to determine who was responsible for the annotations, but they may derive, at least in part, from annotations made by Boole who prepared at least two interleaved copies himself (see below). ?The Mathematical Analysis of Logic marks the beginning of symbolic logic in the modern sense. Boole showed that classical logic was actually a branch of mathematics which gave rise to a hitherto unconsidered type of algebra. Boole?s book however went considerably further. It threw a great deal of light on the nature of pure mathematics; it opened up possibilities of an extension of the subject into totally new and unexpected areas ? classical mathematics had concentrated on the notions of shape and number and even when symbols were employed, they were generally interpreted in terms of number. Boole had now introduced the notion of interpreting symbols as classes or sets of objects, a concept breathtaking in its scope because it meant that the study of all well-defined sets of objects now came under the realm of mathematics ? By enlarging the horizons of mathematics so enormously, Boole unwittingly (but perhaps subconsciously, wittingly) highlighted a topic that has come to influence virtually every aspect of present-day life ? the storage and processing of information, which in turn has led to the development of computer science. Not only is Boole?s algebra the ?correct? and most economical tool for handling information, but the electronic machines which now do the work actually operate according to principles determined by that self-same algebra. Boole has been called the ?Father of Symbolic Logic? and the ?Founder of Pure Mathematics?, but he is just as deserving of the title, ?Father of Computer Science?? (MacHale, p. 82). ABPC/RBH list only two copies since Honeyman: the OOC copy, Christie?s 2005, $10,800, and Bonham?s 2013, £25,000 = $38,000. Both of these copies were in modern bindings (the OOC copy with the original front wrapper bound in).Provenance: H. A. Routledge (signature on front free endpaper, dated June 1955); John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) (note in Routledge?s hand on front free endpaper: ?From Lord Keynes? Collection?). We understand from the previous owner that Keynes inherited the book from his father John Neville Keynes (1852-1949). Boole collected ideas for the improvement of his Mathematical analysis of logic on interleaved copies of the work; these notes provided a source for his later book Laws of thought (1854). Two such copies are known: one is in the library of the Royal Society of London with annotations entirely in Boole?s hand; the other is in possession of Dr. J. Hinton (a great-great grandson of Boole), which has annotations partly in Boole?s hand and partly in the hand of an unidentified amanuensis (see Smith, pp. 27-8). The annotations in our interleaved copy are not in Boole?s hand (nor are they in Keynes? hand), but it is possible that they derive from Boole as do some of the annotations in the Hinton copy.?Boole?s contribution to logics made possible the works of subsequent logicians including Turing and Von Neumann ? Even Babbage depended a great deal on Boole?s ideas for his understanding of what mathematical operations really are ? Since Boole showed that logi

        Der Ludwig-Kanal. Seine Entstehung und Bedeutung als Handels-Strasse. Gezeichnet, auf Stahl gestochen und herausgegeben von Alexander Karl

      Nürnberg, 1847 - der Ludwig-Donau-Main-Kanal (auch Ludwigskanal oder regional „Alter Kanal" genannt) war im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert eine 172,4 km lange Wasserstraße zwischen der Donau bei Kelheim und dem Main bei Bamberg. Im weiteren Sinne war der zwischen 1836 und 1846 erbaute Kanal Teil einer schiffbaren Verbindung zwischen der Nordsee bei Rotterdam und dem Schwarzen Meer bei Constanta. Durch die Überquerung der Europäischen Hauptwasserscheide nahm das ehrgeizige Bauvorhaben eine besondere Stellung ein. 100 Schleusen, teilweise in den Flüssen Altmühl und Regnitz, bewältigten insgesamt einen Höhenunterschied von 264 Metern (80 m Aufstieg von der Donau und 184 m Abstieg zum Main). Nachfolger des 1950 aufgelassenen Kanals ist der 1960 bis 1992 errichtete Main-Donau-Kanal. Zwischen Beilngries und Nürnberg ist der Ludwig-Donau-Main-Kanal im historischen Umfang und mit einigen Funktionen weitgehend erhalten (Quelle: Wikipedia). - Zwischen 1845 und 1847 in 13 Lfg. erschienen unter dem Titel "Pittoreske Ansichten des Ludwig-Donau-Main-Kanals" von Alexander Richard Wilhelm Marx.

        Oeuvres [Traité de Mécanique Céleste; Exposition du Système du Monde; Théorie Analytique des Probabilités (including, as the introduction, Essai Philosophique sur les Probabilités)].

      Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1843-1847. First edition, a beautiful copy bound in contemporary red morocco with the arms of Napoleon III, of the collected works of Laplace, comprising his principal contributions to celestial mechanics and probability theory. The distinguished American historian of science Charles Gillispie considers Laplace to be "among the most influential scientists in all history" (Pierre-Simon-Laplace, 1749-1827: A life in exact science (1997), p. vii). "Laplace gave the world three great works: the Mécanique Céleste, the Exposition du Système du Monde, and the Théorie Analytique des Probabilités. Besides these he presented numerous important memoires before the French Academy and the Academy of Sciences. Laplace's works were first published in seven volumes by the French government in 1843" (Richeson, p. 73). This national edition of the works of the ‘Newton of France' was the result of laws passed by the two legislative chambers in 1842 and 1843, which authorised a special budget of 40,000 francs for publication. Napoleon Bonaparte's nephew, Napoleon III (1808-73), was President of the French Second Republic (1848-52) and Emperor (1852-70) during the Second French Empire. He succeeded Louis XVIII, under whose rule Laplace had been elevated to the title of Marquis. The Traité de Mécanique Céleste, which was first published in 1799-1825, codified and developed the theories and achievements of Newton, Euler, d'Alembert, and Lagrange. In the tradition of Newton's Principia, Laplace (1749-1827) "applied his analytical mathematical theories to celestial bodies and concluded that the apparent changes in the motion of planets and their satellites are changes of long periods, and that the solar system is in all probability very stable" (Dibner 14). "Laplace maintained that while all planets revolve round the sun their eccentricities and the inclinations of their orbits to each other will always remain small. He also showed that all these irregularities in movements and positions in the heavens were self-correcting, so that the whole solar system appeared to be mechanically stable. He showed that the universe was really a great self-regulating machine and the whole solar system could continue on its existing plan for an immense period of time. This was a long step forward from the Newtonian uncertainties in this respect. Laplace also offered a brilliant explanation of the secular inequalities of the mean motion of the moon about the earth - a problem which Euler and Lagrange had failed to solve. He also investigated the theory of the tides and calculated from them the mass of the moon" (PMM). The Exposition du Système du Monde is "one of the most successful popularizations of science ever composed" (DSB). It is "an elegant, non-mathematical classic on astronomy. It is in this work that Laplace introduced one of his most notable contributions (although he himself did not take it very seriously at first) - the so-called nebular hypothesis, which provided a conjectural account of the origin of the solar system" (PMM). According to this hypothesis, the Sun, planets, and their moons began as a whirling cloud of gas. Laplace argued that as a hot nebula cooled, it would require a proportionately faster rate of rotation in order to conserve its angular momentum, and the increased centrifugal force resulting from this increased speed would throw out material which would eventually condense into planets. In essence, this theory of the origin of the solar system is still accepted. The Théorie Analytique des Probabilités, first published in 1812, is "the most influential book on probability and statistics ever written" (Anders Hald), which John Herschel called "the ne plus ultra of mathematical skill and power" (Essays from the Edinburgh and Quarterly Reviews (1857), p. 382). "In the Théorie Laplace gave a new level of mathematical foundation and development both to probability theory and to mathematical statistics. ... [It] emerged from a long series of slow processes and once established, loomed over the landscape for a century or more." (Stephen Stigler, Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 1640-1940, pp. 329-30). "It was the first full-scale study completely devoted to a new specialty, ... [and came] to have the same sort of relation to the later development of probability that, for example, Newton's Principia Mathematica had to the later science of mechanics" (DSB). The Théorie analytique des Probabilités contains, besides an introduction, two books, Du calcul des Fonctions génératrices and Théorie générale des Probabilités, together with four supplements which appeared over the period 1816-1825. The Essai Philosophique sur les Probabilités is Laplace's accessible summary of his work on probability theory. "Inevitably, Laplace's technical writings have come to have the same sort of relation to the later development of the discipline of probability that, for example, Newton's Principia mathematica had for the later science of mathematics. Even if there were no other reason, that would suffice to explain why most readers who wish to repair to the fountainhead of what is often called the subjective interpretation of probability, in contrast to the frequency view, have recourse to the Essai Philosophique" (DSB). The Essai first appeared as the introduction to the second edition of the Théorie Analytique (1814), and separately in the same year, and is here again included as the introduction to the Théorie Analytique. "Pierre Simon Laplace was born in Normandy, France, in 1749 and died in 1827. Very little is known of his youth, since in after life he refused to speak of his childhood days. At eighteen through the aid of D'Alembert he secured a position as professor of mathematics at the École Militaire in Paris. He was elected a member of the French Academy and the Academy of Sciences; later he was made President of the Bureau of Longitude. It was during this time that he carried on the greater part of his scientific researches that gained for him the title of "Newton of France"" (Richeson, p. 73).

        Emerson's Poems

      Chapman Brothers, London 1847 - First issue. 8vo, 12.5 x 20.2cm publisher's green cloth with gilt stamped titles and decoration to the front board and spine and 'Chapman Brothers' at the foot of the spine; blind stamped back cover, pale yellow endpapers, pp vii, 199 (1) +24 publisher's advertisements dated November 16, 1846. The book has been re-backed, with the original spine laid down. This has helped preserve the often delicate spine from further damage, with only 2-4mm loss at the head and foot. The gilt titles remain bright although there is some toning to the edges of the boards and spine. There is also some toning to the edges of the boards and slight bruising to the corners. Internally, there is a split to the paper on the inner hinge of the front board, but the binding remains entirely firm. There are is no name, inscription or bookplate and the book is very clean with only one or two very light marks. If you have any questions or require further images, please do not hesitate to ask The English edition preceded the American of the same year, and was apparently set up from Emerson's manuscript without his being able to read the proofs ands a result it has many errors. This as a first issue lacks the later errata slip. All in all, a significant edition that contains the first appearance in book form of a number of Emerson's poems including 'The Concord Hymn'.

Housed in a dark blue cloth flat-back box by the Chelsea Bindery. Engraved crested bookplates of Hugh Edward Adair (1815-1902), 3rd baronet of Flixton Hall, Suffolk, to the pastedowns. Very light shelf-wear, corners just bumped, mild crumpling head and tail of the spines, hinges just starting, light browning, some foxing front and back with a scatter else, but a very good copy indeed, in the exceptionally bright original cloth. Uncoloured aquatint frontispiece to each, and 14 other similar plates in all, together with 3 engraved plates, and numerous engraved illustrations to the text including one full-page, a folding map at the rear of each volume. First edition, first issue, of this "very important voyage" (Hill), commissioned by the Admiralty to survey the Torres Strait, the hazardous Great Barrier Reef, and various regions in New Guinea. The expedition was the first to be despatched to Australia on a purely surveying mission. Blackwood's directions were so "accurate that many appear on maps to the present day" (Howgego). Jukes, a student of geologist Adam Sedgwick at Cambridge, was naturalist to the expedition. In 1839, through Sedgwick's influence, he was appointed geological surveyor to the colony of Newfoundland. On his return to England he failed to secure the chair in geology at University College, London, but was selected to accompany the Fly to Australia: "over the next four years Jukes pursued his science in locations such as Madeira, Cape Colony, New Guinea, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef. By the time the Fly dropped anchor at Spithead on 19 June 1846 he was a geologist of global experience he [was to become] perhaps the finest British field geologist of his day".

      Stuttgart, Schreiber & Schill, [1847]. 1. Auflage Ohne den Titel und den Textteil (Vorwort und Anleitung 8S.). Mit 35 (von 36, Tafel 17 fehlt) kolorierten Tafeln, Tafel 37 ist auf die Rückseite von Tafel 35 montiert. 28 x 34 cm, Halbleder mit aufmontierter Deckelillustration Einband berieben, bestoßen, angeschmutzt und fleckig. Deckelillustration mit Verlust. Titel, Vorwort und Anleitung fehlen. Bindung aufgegangen, Blätter lose. Gutes Leseexemplar.Wegehaupt III, 381. \"Entworfen wurde Bohny\'s Neues Bilderbuch von dem Schweizer Pädagogen Nikolaus (oder Niklaus) Bohny (1815–1856). Über Bohnys Leben ist nicht viel bekannt. Überliefert ist ein Lehrvertrag aus dem Jahr 1822 zwischen einem Niklaus Bohny und Wilhelm Müller-Mathys, der offenbar zahlreiche künftige Lehrer ausbildete. Später arbeitete Bohny in Basel als Lehrer. Er veröffentlichte noch weitere pädagogische Bilderbücher.Die erste Auflage des querformatigen Neuen Bilderbuchs mit 36 Seiten und über 400 farbigen Abbildungen erschien 1847 oder 1848, zahlreiche weitere Auflagen sowie Übersetzungen in viele Sprachen folgten. Zur Zeit der 16. deutschsprachigen Auflage gab es auch eine brasilianische, eine englische, eine französische, eine griechische, eine italienische, eine holländische, eine russische und eine ungarische Version des Buches. Mindestens dreimal wurden die Bilder zu Bohnys Texten neu gezeichnet und aktualisiert, das dritte Mal für die 16. Auflage des Buches. Die deutschen Ausgaben erschienen im Esslinger Schreiber-Verlag; im letzten Viertel des 20. Jahrhunderts wurden auch Reprints aufgelegt.Bohny, der sich in der Tradition Pestalozzis sah, entwarf das Buch als „Anleitung zum Anschauen, Denken, Rechnen und Sprechen für Kinder von zweieinhalb bis sieben Jahren“ und versah es mit einem Vorwort sowie einer Art Gebrauchsanleitung. Neu sei das Bilderbuch deshalb, so schrieb er im Vorwort, weil seine für die Erwachsenen beigedruckten Leitfragen zu den Bildern das Zählen und Ordnen in den Vordergrund stellten. Die Kinder sollten angeregt werden, die in zwei bis drei Reihen pro Seite gedruckten Bilder im Einzelnen zu betrachten, Zahlenverhältnisse und Unterscheidungsmerkmale zu benennen und einfache Rechenaufgaben zu lösen.Auf den Seiten 1 bis 4 wird der Zahlenraum von 1 bis 5 veranschaulicht. Mit diesen fünf Zahlen wird auf den Seiten 5 bis 16 gearbeitet. Additions- und Subtraktionsaufgaben sowie die Zerlegung der Zahlen sind Thema dieser Seiten. Auf den Seiten 17 bis 20 kommt die Zahl 6 hinzu, auf den Seiten 21 bis 24 die Zahl 7, auf den Seiten 25 bis 28 die Zahl 8, auf Seite 29 bis 32 die Zahl 9 und auf Seite 33 bis 36 die Zahl 10. Einige Aufgaben der letzten Seiten regen auch zur Beschäftigung mit dem Zahlenraum über 10 an. Ab Seite 25 sind auch Multiplikations- und Divisionsaufgaben zu finden. Bohny legte allerdings nicht nur Wert auf die Lösung von Rechenaufgaben, sondern auch auf die Ausbildung des sprachlichen Ausdrucksvermögens der Kinder: „Denn die Sprache ist das Mittel, durch welches die Außenwelt den Kindern zum Verständnis gebracht werden kann. Die Kinder sollen vorerst anschauen, dann über das Angeschaute denken und das Gedachte richtig aussprechen lernen.“ Wichtig war es Bohny auch, Bildgegenstände aus der alltäglichen Umgebung der Kinder zu wählen, um einerseits so das Interesse für das Buch zu wecken, andererseits aber auch einen intensiveren Blick auf die Außenwelt zu fördern.\" (Wikipedia) Versandkostenfreie Lieferung

S C A R C E An important early primary source for coverage of cities newly opened to foreigners. To study these new cities with the intent of establishing missionary stations was his main goal. The author visited the five open ports, and collected facts & statistics. This is an historical work, covering his visits to Hong Kong, Canton, Macao, Shanghai, Ningpo, excursions to the interior, Chusan, Teen-Tung, Pootoo, Foo-Chow & Amoy. His early and very keen observations and recorded commentary are a valuable record of what he saw. His descriptions are lucid and insightful. A useful primary source and guide to the life, times & places during this early period of exploration. His commentary on opium smoking, New Year Festivities, female infanticide and the general descriptions of the cities are of particular interest. The author was an early missionary in China. Very fascinating and early resource. REFERENCES: H. Cordier: BIBLIOTHECA SINICA III, 2102 H. Cordier: BIBLIOTHECA SINICA p.2115 Lust 385 L. Taylor: CHINA p.44. .

        [GREAT CONTENT AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNATURE OBLITERATED, FROM AN UNIDENTIFIED, BUT OBVIOUSLY HIGH-LEVEL POLITICIAN, DEFENDING AMERICAN INVOLVEMENT IN THE MEXICAN- AMERICAN WAR]

      [N.p., but probably Washington, 1847. [4]pp. Old folds, minor edge wear, dateline details and signature crossed out in contemporary ink to hide the author's identity. Still, very good. An uninhibited, racially-charged, and religiously-based letter written in wholehearted, full-throated support of United States involvement in the Mexican-American War. The author was most certainly a prominent politician at one time, as he writes about "the sentiments I expressed to the President the other day, and subsequently repeated to the Secretary of State" regarding the war but that he has "ceased to take an active part in politics." Since it is likely that he was visiting James K. Polk, he was probably a member of the Democratic Party, or perhaps an expansionist Whig. His letter reads, in part: "You condemn the Mexican War as a 'causeless cruel and disgraceful butchery' and call upon me, as 'one of the saints, the apostles of the party', to put a stop to it. I have no responsibility in my conscience in relation to it or any other measure of the government. Since I have ceased to take an active part in politics, I have had no influence whatever with the party in power. You do me altogether too much honor when you designate me as 'one of the political saints.' and entirely overrate my influence when you suppose that I can do anything to avert the war measures.... You think the war a 'horrid butchery. I think it the religious execution of our country's glorious mission under the Direction of Divine Providence to civilize and Christianize and raise up from anarchy and degradation a most ignorant, indolent, wicked and unhappy people! It is the will of God that the afflictions of this people shall be speedily terminated. The interests of Religion, of Commerce, of Free Government and of all the acts of Peace, require that those who have proved themselves incapable of self- government should be placed under the kind guardianship of others who are not only competent to direct their own affairs, but who can spare a little surplus time and energy to care for the welfare of others.... It is my firm belief that there will be no treaty of peace now or ever with the present wretched aggregation of races, tribes and colors miscalled the 'Mexican nation'." The author continues in much the same vein throughout the text of the letter, leaving absolutely no doubt where he stands on the current war question, and why. He mentions Texas three times, most notably when he writes that "until the boundary is settled by treaty we must defend out territory up to the line claimed by the political and legislative authority of Texas at the time of annexation [1845]." A remarkable correspondence from a high-ranking politician revealing much of his views on the Mexican people.

        Teutsche Revolution. Gesammelte Flugschriften. XI, 547 S. 2 Bl. Hübscher marmor. Pappbd d. Z. mit farb. RSchild.

      Bern, Jenni, 1847. - Erste Ausgabe der Sammlung bisher erschienener Flugschriften. Sie "liefert in ihrer chronologischen Zusammenstellung ein Bild der politischen Entwicklung eines Teutschen, der durch den Despotismus und die Freiheit zugleich geschult wurde; sie bildet in ihrer Rücksichtslosigkeit einen angemessenen Gegensatz zu der Eunuchensprache meiner Landsleute . Die Veranlassung zur Herausgabe dieser Sammlung ist zunächst eine bloß polizeiliche. Man jagt mich wegen meiner Schriften seit mehreren Wochen wie ein wildes Thier umher und weiß ich nicht, wo diese Jagd eine Ende finden wird " (Vorwort). Teile der Auflage wurden als 'Tarnschrift' mit dem Umschlag 'Archiv für Thierheilkunde' sowie entsprechend gedrucktem Titel und fingierter 1. Lage (!) nach Leipzig geschmuggelt, jedoch von der Polizei entdeckt. Preußen stellte daraufhin den Antrag beim Bundestag, den gesamten Verlag für das Gebiet des Deutschen Bundes zu verbieten. Besonders peinlich war diese Publikation für den Bundestag, weil ein Bericht für die Bundestagsgesandten in Frankfurt („Autographirte Zirkularnote") Heinzen zugespielt worden war und auf der Rückseite des Originalumschlags (der hier, wie fast immer, nicht beigebunden ist) abgedruckt wurde. – Titel mit kleinem, unauffälligem Besitzstempel. Schönes Exemplar. – Stammhammer I 103, 7. Huber 24. Nicht bei Friedlaender. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        DONIPHAN'S EXPEDITION; CONTAINING AN ACCOUNT OF THE CONQUEST OF NEW MEXICO; GENERAL KEARNEY'S OVERLAND EXPEDITION TO CALIFORNIA; DONIPHAN'S CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE NAVAJOS...

      Cincinnati: U.P. James, 1847. 144pp. Frontis. Illus. Titlepage vignette. Original pink pictorial wrappers. Spine darkened and bit chipped, some internal dust soiling and minor scattered foxing, but an exceptionally fine copy, completely unopened. One of the classic, primary works on the campaign of the First Missouri Cavalry in New Mexico and Chihuahua. "The narrative is a valuable adjunct to the literature of overland travel, Doniphan's march being one of the most famous in history and the author an actual participant. The chapters on the march to California of Kearny's Army of the West, the battles en route and there, and of affairs on the west coast during the Revolution, contain one of the earliest accounts of these world-shaking events to appear in print" - Eberstadt. The first edition (which is extremely rare) appeared in 1847, and by 1851 more than 14,000 copies had been sold. The precedence of the various printings and revised printings was long a bibliographic mystery, now nicely summarized in Wagner-Camp-Becker. This printing, with U.P. James listed as the sole publisher, without date, is ascribed by Wagner-Camp-Becker to the period following the dissolution of the partnership of J.A. and U.P. James in July of 1854. Very uncommon in this original state. HOWES H769. WAGNER-CAMP 134:6. GRAFF 2006. RITTENHOUSE 311.
