        An Auto-Biographical Memoir of Sir John Barrow, Bart., Late of the Admiralty; Including Reflections, Observations, and Reminiscences at Home and Abroad, from Early Life to Advanced Age

      Albemarle Street, London: John Murray, 1847. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Sir John Barrow (1764-1848) was born the son of Roger Barrow in the village of Dragley Beck, in the parish of Ulverston (then in Lancashire, now in Cumbria). He started in life as superintending clerk of an iron foundry at Liverpool and afterwards, in his twenties, taught mathematics at a private school in Greenwich. In 1797 he accompanied Lord Macartney, as private secretary in his delicate mission to settle the government of the newly acquired colony of the Cape of Good Hope. Barrow was entrusted with the task of reconciling the Boer settlers and the native Black population and of reporting on the country in the interior. On his return from his journey, in the course of which he visited all parts of the colony, he was appointed auditor-general of public accounts. He now decided to settle in South Africa, married Anne Maria Trüter, and in 1800 bought a house in Cape Town. But the surrender of the colony at the peace of Amiens (1802) upset this plan. He returned to England in 1804, was appointed Second Secretary to the Admiralty by Viscount Melville, a post which he held for forty years. During his travels through South Africa, Barrow compiled copious notes and sketches of the countryside. In his position at the Admiralty, Barrow was a great promoter of Arctic voyages of discovery, including those of John Ross, William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross, and John Franklin. The Barrow Strait in the Canadian Arctic as well as Point Barrow and the city of Barrow in Alaska are named after him. He is reputed to have been the initial proposer of St Helena as the new place of exile for Napoleon Bonaparte following the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Barrow was a fellow of the Royal Society, and in 1821 received the degree of LL.D from the University of Edinburgh. A baronetcy was conferred on him by Sir Robert Peel in 1835. He was also a member of the Raleigh Club, a forerunner of the Royal Geographical Society. He retired from public life in 1845 and devoted himself to writing a history of the modern Arctic voyages of discovery (1846), as well as his autobiography, published in 1847. He died suddenly on 23 November 1848. This volume is bound in contemporary half leather with raised spine bands, red spine title, and leather corners over marbled paper covered boards. Condition is about very good. The binding is intact, with light overall shelf wear, heavier at extremities and along the hinges. The front hinge is weak, with a gutterbreak at the front pastedown and the binding cords just holding.

        SCRAP BOOKS

      N.P.: n.p., n.d.. variously bound. 100558|100937|101508|101950/PR. 4to. variously bound. unpaginated. 5 Volumes. Five volumes of engravings collected by George W. Casilear. Casilear was an engraver and landscape artist in New York from 1847 to 1852, working with his brother John W. Casilear from 1847 to 1848. In 1851, he produced, with Henry Bainbridge, A View of San Francisco, published by Sarony and Major in 1851. About the same time, he produced a view of Sacramento, also published by Sarony. He also produced the sketch used by G.V. Cooper for the frontispiece in Lett's Pictoral View of California. See George C. Groce and David H. Wallace, The New-York Historical Society's Dictionary of Artists in America 1564-1860 (New Haven: Yale Univerity Press, 1957), 114. Casilear then worked as an editor, secretary and solicitor of patents from 1852 to 1857. In 1862, he became Chief of the Engraving Division of the Bureau of Printing and Engraving. Casilear was instrumental in the redesign of United States currency in 1864. One contemporary news account called his engraving of the landing of Columbus "superior to that of the original." (The Farmer's Cabinet, Amherst, New Hampshire, January 21, 1864). But in May 1878, Casilear was accused of "gross misconduct" and a congressional committee chair urged President Rutherford B. Hayes to remove him from office (Herald Tribune, New York, May 2, 1878). Casilear remained in office, and he would lead an investigation of counterfeiting of United States bonds based on evidence found by the Secret Service in Chicago (Herald Tribune, New York, October 1, 1880). See also Ben. Perley Poore, Congressional Directory (Washington: Government Printing Office, 1872 and 1881). Casilear was finally removed from office in 1885, being replaced by John A. O'Neill of Hoboken, New Jersey. News accounts stated that no charges of wrongdoing had emerged, and Casilear was "considered one of the best engravers in the country" (New York Times, April 17, 1885). But a subsequent news account stated that Casilear's replacement would "bring new life to a division that has been charged with a lack of ingenuity and freshness." The same account averred that Casilear had "never touched a graver or a plate in the production of a government note," noting his focus on designing silver certificates and bonds" (New York Times, April 18, 1885). Possibly, politics was a factor, the Democratic Cleveland administration having recently replaced the Republican Arthur administration. The seven volumes include well over 500 engravings mostly from England, continental Europe, with some from the United States. There is no apparent format of organization, but some points are worthy of note. One volume, labeled "Miscellaneous Engravings" includes a number of English engravings attributed to James Virtue, the National Gallery and the Royal Collection. Another, labeled "Engravings," also has a number of items attributed to Virtue. A third volume, labeled "Scrap Book-Engravings and Etchings by the Old and New School," includes mainly English, French and German items, with translations into English of some of the French captions. A fourth volume, labeled "Scrap Book," includes annotations with handwritten biographical information about many of the engravers and descriptive information about the engravings. A fifth volume includes an engraving of President Chester Arthur with a facsimile signature and date, along with French, English, German and American engravings. The scrap books feature artists such as Rembrant van Rijn, Samuel William Reynolds, Jacques Callot, Charles Heath, W. Unger, Francis Boucher, Sebastian Bourdon, John Henry Roos, George Benedetto Castiglione, Nicholas van Aelst, Gerard Dow, Martinet, and Francis Chereau to name a few. Five of the seven volumes are bound in half leather, marbled paper-covered boards. One is bound in leather, gilt decorated, and one half leather, cloth boards. Casilear's bookplate is on the front pastedown of each volume. The volumes are rubbed and scuffed at the edges, and there is some foxing.

        Kto Vinovat? Roman v dvuch chastyach [Russian. i.e.: Who Is To Blame? Novel in Two Parts].

      Sankt Peterburg, 1847. 8vo. Nice contemporary red half calf with five raised bands and gilt lettering. Spine neatly rebacked, preserving most of the original spine. Spine with a bit of wear. End-papers renewed. First two leaves with teares repaired from verso, far from affecting lettering, and no loss. Some browning and a bit of spotting to first leaves. 222 pp.. First edition of Herzen's major landmark work, constituting the first purely social Russian novel. The work was instrumental "in Herzen becoming a leading member of Russia's radical "Westernizing" intelligentsia" (Klosoko) and in him being regarded as "the father of Russian socialism".Chernyshevsky's economic and social philosophy expressed in the work (with the title that so obviously alludes to Herzen's) "What is to be Done" - arguably the most influential work ever written in Russia - is to a very large extend based upon the views that Herzen presents 16 years earlier, in the present novel, "Who is to Blame?". Herzen's detestation of capitalism and his hopes concerning the commune were also to a large extent adopted by the Russian populists (the narodniki movement), who created a revolutionary movement in Russia in the 1860ies and 1870ies.Herzen was considered a revolutionary and his writings were banned, making the original editions of them scarce. "While Rousseau, Sand and Dickens proved to be the three most important Western authors whose novels influenced Chernyshevsky's "What Is To Be Done?", within the Russian literary tradition it was Herzen's "Who Is To Blame?" [...] that exerted the greatest influence." (Introduction to "What Is To Be Done?")."Who Is To Blame?", written in the form of a fictional novel, is about Dmitry Krutsifersky, a liberal hero who becomes disillusioned with Russian society. Krutsifersky is hired to tutor the son of the rich landowner Negrov. Krutsifersky eventually marries Negrov's illegitimate daughter Lyubov and they have a child together. Their happiness is destroyed when a rich young landowner named Beltov becomes a friend of the family and begins an illicit relationship with Lyubov. Beltov ends up departing Russia for Europe, leaving the young couple with a broken and hopeless marriage.It is essentially a satire of the Russian landed gentry, showing their coarseness and pettiness and is famous in literature for its depiction of a "superfluous man" - a Russian literary concept derived from the Byronic hero by referring to an individual, perhaps talented and capable, who does not fit into social norms."Having read widely in Saint-Simon, Fourier, and the German Young Hegelians, Herzen claimed that, correctly understood, the Hegelian dialectic was an "algebra of revolution." He welcomed the revolutions of 1848, and in a series of essays and philosophical dialogues published between 1848 and 1852 he described his initial hopes and attempts to explain why all over Europe, the revolutionary movement had proved to be such a grotesque failure. Herzen soon came to believe that the Russian peasant commune, with its unique traditions of self-management, might serve as the basis for an authentically Russian socialism. There were two key elements in Herzen's Russian socialism. The first was a critique of capitalism that focused more on the mores and the consumption patterns of late capitalism than on the economic hardship of the period of primitive accumulation. Herzen was opposed to capitalism not only because it produced poverty and exploitation in its early stages but also because he believed it degraded people with its crass material values and its mass culture. Much of Herzen's social criticism was in fact an attempt to characterize the culture of capitalism and the links between the dominant values, tastes, and mores of bourgeois society and an economic system founded on the free market and on respect for the rights of poverty-owners to do whatever they wished with goods or land or resources in their possession - no matter how fragile these resources might be. The second central element in Herzen's Russian socialism was the idea that the pesant commune contained in itself the basis of a new and higher social form." (Klosko, the Oxford Handbook of the History of Political Philosophy, P. 383). The work has led to Herzen being called a "gentry revolutionary". Herzen viewed the gentry as a progressive class. The revolution he envisioned was for the people but not necessarily by them. Also, his socialism was a national destiny rather than a class one."Alexander Herzen (1812 -1870) was a prominent nineteenth-century Russian social thinker and 'father of Russian socialism'. Early in his intellectual development, Herzen was influenced by German idealist thinkers such as Schiller and Schelling. He believed in the autonomy and dignity of the individual and opposed forces, such as family and state, that oppressed the individual. Later, under the influence of French socialist thinkers such as Charles Fourier, Herzen's thought became more radical. Herzen projected his earlier concern for the oppressed individual onto society at large and he became a supporter of socialism. The socialism he envisioned was a loose federation of self-governing communes. Only in such a system could the ideal society be achieved - according to Herzen that society would be a free association of individuals which provided for the full flowering of each personality. Herzen initially placed his hopes for this future order in the European socialist movement. After the failure of the 1848 revolutions to achieve socialist principles, however, Herzen became disillusioned about European prospects and turned his attention to Russia. Herzen argued that socialist transformation would actually come first to Russia because communal institutions such as the peasant commune survived and bourgeois attitudes hadn't yet emerged. This sense of the advantages of Russian 'backwardness' was influential among the Populists in the 1870s. " (Herzen, Selected Philosophical Works).Herzen's concern for the poor and unprivileged drives him to ask the question: who is to blame for their troubles? He goes on extending the question to include every character in the novel. The scope of the title includes all the characters and their specific predicaments. The novel examines their fates individually and not collectively, which emphasizes Herzen's focus on the individual. "Who is to Blame?" was initially published in the journal "Otechestvennye Zapiski" (1845-1846), with some cuts by the censor. It was, however, not published in its complete form until the present publication in 1847

        Calmet's Dictionary of the Holy Bible:

      London - Henry G. Bohn 1847 - A beautiful trio of Augustine Calmet's biblical dictionary. Calmet (1757) was a French Benedictine monk and the first prominent Catholic theologian[to abandon]the allegorical and mystical method of interpretation, and[undertake] to give the literal sense of the Bible word. (JE)Calmet was alsothe author of numerous biblical reference texts, including Commentaire littral sur tous les livres de l'Ancien et du Nouveau Testaments (A literal Commentary on all the Books of the Old and New Testaments) and Histoire de l'Ancien et du Nouveau Testament et des Juifs. The value of this book lies not so much in its exegesis as in the dissertations attached to it, which treat such topics as Hebrew poetry, music, weights and measures, medicine, marriage customs, burial customs, military organisation, circumcision, the Sanhedrin, and Hebrew schools and sects, and are, for his time, remarkably full and judicious. (JE)With a frontispiece of Calmet to the first volume. With the Latin bookplates of the wealthyVictorian bankerJohn Naylor Leighton, who built Leighton Hall in Welshpool. The first three volumes of a total of five, with the absent volumes being the second half of the fragments and a book of plates. Bound by Clarke & Bedford. Condition: Uniformly bound in full tree calf. Externally, generally smart with some scuffs but also lovely patina to boards. Some wear to extremities and raised bands of backstrip, occasionally resulting in slight loss to leather. Two joints starting. Internally, firmly bound. Occasional spots to first and last few pages, elsewhere very bright and clean indeed, especially for books this age. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Modern light brown quarter-leather binding with marbled paper boards. Renewed eps.. Binding - Fine. Textblock - VG+ (sporadic light foxing).. As a young man, Lewis became a printer, and practiced this business while studying law. At 24, he passed the bar, and soon rose in his profession, as evidenced 2 years later when appointed Deputy Attorney-General of the State of Pennsylvania. Further, in 1832, he was elected a member of the state legislature. 1833 saw his appointment as Attorney-general, and in October that year, President Judge of the 8th Judicial district. In January, 1843, he was made president judge of the 2d district, in 1851 he was elected a justice of the State Supreme Court, and in 1854-7 was Chief Justice. This the one legalistic book published by this distinguished jurist- the 1873 first edition is quite uncommon, held by just 6 institutions [per OCLC].
