In his introduction the author notes that of the forty-seven species depicted "the great majority of them are figured here for the first time, and either improved figures, or different states of plumage, compose the remainder of the drawings". Three of the birds are from the Himalayas, one from Ceylon, and the "rest inhabit the peninsula of India". On several plates the early owner, a Major in the 66th Regiment, has noted when and where he has shot specimens, if common, and that several he has sent to England.

        Large Three-Dimensional Specimens from Resort Town St. Leonards-on-Sea

      St Leonards-on-Sea, England, 1847-1849. Substantial collection of 123 ocean botanical specimens, gathered by an unidentified English nineteenth century phycology enthusiast, neatly organized into three sections, Melanospermeae, Rhodospermeae, Chlorospermeae, and accompanied by a manuscript index card. Includes over 75 specimens carefully mounted into a large album and captioned in manuscript with scientific names, as well as 48 additional specimens mounted onto individual leafs placed within the same volume. (A scant few specimens, mostly on the individual leafs, were collected in Tenby, Wales, in 1853. One is captioned New Holland, the former name for Australia.) Folio. Purpose made volume, half burgundy morocco over brown marbled boards, "Sea-Weeds" titled in gilt to spine. Volume measures approximately 28 x 45 cm. Specimens vary greatly in size, the smallest measuring approximately 2 x 2 cm, and the largest spanning approximately 42 x 20 cm. A large volume houses this fine herbarium of over 100 impressive marine species, large and small benthic macroalgae mostly growing in the English Channel, some having been discovered not long before, the lot skillfully harvested by a nineteenth century botanist who sometimes managed to extract even the root system intact. The collector is unknown, though the volume possesses some evidence that he was well-travelled and presumably well-off. Many seaweed specimens gathered at St Leonards-on-Sea are dated November and December 1848, when the town was primarily a seaside resort for the wealthy. A few specimens placed separately in the volume were gathered in 1853 off the shoreline of Tenby, another spa resort town in Wales. And, possibly most interesting of all, is a vibrant sample of Gigartina speciosa, which was discovered in Western Australia in 1845, which is mounted to a leaf embossed 'Bath'. Melanospermeae (olive seaweeds), Rhodospermeae (red spore seaweeds), and Chlorospermeae (green seaweeds), are the three categories by which the preserved seaweeds are presented. The collector had clear intent for his work, labeling pages with tipped-in headings prior to embarking on his search for obscure, desirable, and little-known genera. As opposed to the random gatherings of a hobbyist, his findings are systematically organized, the album being laid out with a plan. A manuscript list also names a few "desirable plants to procure seeds of." The collection begins with an enormous leaf of Fucoideae Cystoseira, also known as bullwhip kelp, followed shortly thereafter by a large and beautifully defined Halidrys siliquosa or Sea Oak (H.C. Lyngbye, 1819). A large mauve-black Fucus vesiculosus is also beautifully intact with dramatic spherical air bladders. Better known as bladder wrack, it was discovered in 1811 and was the original source of iodine, once used extensively to treat goiter. Other varieties from the Fucales order of brown algae follow, including the Fucus serratus or the Toothed Wrack. Yet more in the so-called 'olive' category include the fine translucent pale green Laminaria Phyllitis, the Desmarestia, the Dictyoteae, the Chorda filum commonly called Sea Lace, and the complex Ectocarpus varieties. The red seaweeds section "Tribe II - Rhodospermeae" renders 21 unique genera for observation. Colourful, delicate, and enticing, some of these include unique varieties of Delessaria, a Nitophyllum laceratum (S.G. Gmelin) juxtaposed against a Nitophyllum Gmelini, the Rhodymenia palmata (Greville 1830) commonly known as dulse, the Chylocladia articulata, the striking dense and tufted Polysiphonia, the Polysiphonia elongata, and other from this genus of filamentous red algae which is known now to have about 19 species on the coasts of the British Isles. Of special interest is a page with samples of three types of the holotype species Griffithsia which was named in honour of the discoverer, pioneering female phycologist from North Devon, Amelia Warren Griffiths (1768-1858). Finally, the third section yields the delicate and bright green Ulva or sea lettuce, three Conferva, a spectacular example of coldwater Porphyra laciniata which has a textural appearance of vellum, and a few little enteromorpha. The collector's captions frequently note a page reference to a volume titled 'Marine Botany' and also indicate specimens described by 'Sowerby' the latter being English naturalist and botanist James Sowerby (1757-1822) who published and illustrated the enormous multi-volume work "English Botany" that was issued between 1790 and 1813. This is a very large volume measuring 28 x 45 cm and featuring numerous large seaweed specimens. Seaweed is a loose colloquial term encompassing macroscopic, multi-cellular, benthic marine algae. The term includes some members of the red, brown and green algae. A seaweed may belong to one of several groups of multi-cellular algae: the red algae, green algae, and brown algae. As these three groups are not thought to have a common multicellular ancestor, the seaweeds are a polyphyletic group. In addition, some tuft-forming bluegreen algae (Cyanobacteria) are sometimes considered to be seaweeds. Phycology is the scientific study of algae. The branch of life science is often regarded as a subdiscipline of botany. Algae are important plants as primary producers in aquatic ecosystems. Most algae are eukaryotic, photosynthetic organisms that live in a wet environment. They are distinguished from the higher plants by a lack of true roots, stems or leaves. Many species are single-celled and microscopic, including phytoplankton and other microalgae. Others are multi-cellular to one degree or another, some of these growing to large size (for example, seaweeds such as kelp and Sargassum). St Leonards-on-Sea (commonly known as St Leonards) has been part of Hastings, East Sussex, England, since the late 19th century though it retains a sense of separate identity. It lies to the west of central Hastings. The original part of the settlement was laid out in the early 19th century as a new town: a place of elegant houses designed for the well-off; it also included a central public garden, a hotel, an archery, assembly rooms and a church. The land that is now St Leonards was once owned by the Levett family, an ancient Sussex gentry family of Norman origin. James Burton, a successful London architect who had developed large areas of Bloomsbury and the houses around Regent's Park, purchased land from the Eversfield estate to put into being his concept of a seaside resort. The land was part of Gensing Farm, and included a small wooded valley leading down to the sea. Work on the plan started in early 1826. Before he died in 1837 St Leonards (Royal Victoria) Hotel, the South Colonnade, an archway marking the town boundary with Hastings, and tall seafront houses (as far as 71 Marina) had also been completed. In 1850 his son Decimus started the second phase of building, by acquiring more land and extending the development westward. Today's St Leonards has extended well beyond that original design, although the original town still exists within it.

      1847Paris, Imprimerie Royale, avril 1847. Grand in-quarto (229 X 300) chagrin rouge à grain long (reliure de l'époque) ; 42 pages. IMPORTANTE SOURCE JUDICIAIRE SUR L'APPLICATION DE LA JUSTICE MILITAIRE EN 1844. Un rapport du ministère de la Guerre à Louis-Philippe, daté de décembre 1833, rappelle l'utilité de ce tableau statistique : « c'est un besoin de notre époque d'appeler un examen attentif sur toutes les parties de l'administration, de recueillir et de coordonner les faits pour en tirer d'utiles enseignements, et d'exposer au grand jour de la publicité les résultats obtenus. Ceux que présente l'administration de la justice militaire m'ont paru propres à exercer une influence salutaire sur l'application des lois, et à compléter, sous un de ses rapports les plus importants, la connaissance de l'état de la justice criminelle en France. » Parallèlement aux Comptes généraux de l'administration de la justice criminelle et civile, publiés par le ministère de la Justice sous forme d'un volume annuel de 1827 à 1974, le ministère de la Guerre fut chargé de rédiger annuellement le Compte général de l'administration de la justice militaire.

        [Rossetti, Christina- With Presentaion Autogaph Letter, Corrections in Text] Verses, Dedicated to Her Mother

      London: Privately Printed at G. Polidori's, 1847. First edition. Contemporaneously bound by Riviere in full crushed green morocco, gilt ruling on covers, elaborately gilt-tooled spine and dentelles, maroon endsheets, TEG. 66pp. This previously unrecorded copy of Christina Rossetti's Verses, the Wachs Copy, comes directly from Dr. G. N. Wachs prestigious collection. An eminently important and vanishingly scarce title, Christina Rossetti's Verses stands at the pinnacle of scarce and important 'first books' in the early Victorian Period as well as all of Pre-Raphaelite literature and poetry. This copy has the cancel on page 55-56 and the various printed corrections which were made to this cancel and supplied to Christina (and others who received directly from Polidori). This copy carries the bookplate of William Crampton and was originally sold in the Crampton Sale at Sotheby's London June 3, 1896. The book was privately printed by Gaetano Polidori, printer and the grandfather of Christina Rossetti, in sheets delivered directly to the then 16 year-old Christina, for her (or her father Gabriele, or others) to have bound for personal copies or for presentation. Importantly, this copy comes with an inserted original autograph letter signed from Christina to Charles Augustus Howell, a close family friend who helped Christina start a stamp collection and to whom the "promise" of the book is presented in the ALS, 3pp: "166 Albany Street, N. W. Monday morning," [1865-1867, per William Baker, Notes and Queries, 2010]. "My dear Mr. Howell, Please don't forbid me the pleasant duty of thanking you for so precious a collection of stamps; so choice and various an assortment, that indeed I need not grudged what were obtained by ladies before me in the field. Very soon I hope to ask your acceptance of my unworthy first book, but as at this moment I only possess it in lose sheets, a few days must be lost at the binder's. However innocent in its authoress, the comment of Mrs. Cottle seems to me so unedifying to Christians that (unless you reclaim it) I shall take the liberty of burning it ere long. Poor creature, what a dreadful state to be in. We hope Miss Howell did not suffer from the night air in her journey home, doubtless well taken care of. Pray present to her my Mother's kindest remembrances and my own. Yours very truly, Christina G. Rossetti." The letter is tipped onto a stub leaf that was bound-in, thus probably obtained with the sheets from Christina and bound by the recipient, most likely, Mr. Howell. C.E. Howell was quite a beloved family friend of the Rossetti family, especially early on, as discussed in Jan Marsh's excellent book, "Christina Rossetti, A Literary Bibliography." Marsh writes, "Soon he {Howell] was collecting stamps for Christina, promising to find a kitten and sending a portrait carte of his bride-to-be." This is Christina's first collection of poetry and dedicated to her mother, consisting of 42 poems, of which 40 are in English and two in Italian, a significant achievement for sixteen years and Christina's formal literary debut. Corrections in the text have been thoroughly treated by William Baker, in his excellent discussion of this very book, which appeared in "Notes and Queries," 2010. In addition to the letter, the copy of Verses Dedicated to her Mother contains instances of manuscript correction: such corrections seem not to be uncommon in copies of Verses that Christina Rossetti retained following its first distribution and then gave away.8 The first is found in PolidoriÕs preface, ?A Few Words to the Reader. Polidori writes, Ã’These verses have . . . been composed from the age of twelve to sixteen.? The word ?twelve? has pencil lines through it and is in pencil replaced by ?eleven?. On p. 38 of her poem ?Amore E. Dispelto?, composed on 15 September 1845, in the fifth line of the second stanza, ?Oh quanto sembo bella?, in the left hand margin inserted in black ink is an accent "^'"? The third annotation occurs on p. 52. In the third line of ?The Solitary Rose,? composed on 15 March 1847,9 ?Than art perfumed by thine own fragrance only? the first word ?Than? is corrected in black ink to ?That.? There are other mark- ings, too. In ?Lady Isabella?, composed on 1 March 1846, in the third line of the third verse the first letter of the third word has been changed to a ?t? to read ?tears? (p. 53). On p. 63 ?no? has been crossed out in the sixth verse of ?Resurrection Eve? written on 8 April 1847. A lasting rarity. According to Patrick Scott, noted professor of English, author, scholar and Christina Rossetti expert, there are only about 30 extant copies of Christina's Verses known.

Da bekannt war, ich selbst schriebs dem Polizeydirector, daß um 4 Uhr Nachmittag Studenten hergezogen kamen [?] so hätten zweckmäßige Vorkehrungen getroffen werden sollen. Daß keine Wiederhohlungen weder bey Nacht noch Tag ähnliche Auftritte es gäbe, dem muß vorgebeugt werden. Warnungen, öffentlich, haben zu geschehen, wären sie fruchtlos ist mit dem gehörigen gesetzlichen Ernst zu verfahren. Das Volk darf sich nicht an Aufläufe gewöhnen. Bey Tag und Nacht ist Sorge zu tragen daß nicht nur wo Lola Montez jetzt wohnt sondern auch ihr eigenes Haus beschützt werde. Das alles ist mein ernster Wille [...] Sehr wünschenswerth die Rädelsführer habhaft zu werden." - Nachdem die Äffäre des Bayernkönigs mit der Tänzerin Lola Montez bekannt geworden und das Bestreben des Königs, ihr die bayerische Staatsbürgerschaft zu verleihen, bei seinem Kabinett auf Widerstand gestoßen war, hatten am 11. Februar 1847 sämtliche Minister um ihre Entlassung gebeten; diese folgte am 1. März, am Tag des vorliegenden Schreibens. Unter Schwierigkeiten wurde ein neues Kabinett gebildet und Lola Montez dennoch eingebürgert, was in der Theresienstraße zu Tumulten führte. Am 25. August 1847 wurde sie zur Gräfin von Landsfeld erhoben.

        Herbarium - Large Folio Early Seaweed Collection - St. Leonards-on-Sea, Includes Sample from Australia

      England, 1847. St Leonards-on-Sea, England, 1847-1849. Substantial collection of 123 ocean botanical specimens, gathered by an unidentified English nineteenth century phycology enthusiast, neatly organized into three sections, Melanospermeae, Rhodospermeae, Chlorospermeae, and accompanied by a manuscript index card. Includes over 75 specimens carefully mounted into a large album and captioned in manuscript with scientific names, as well as 48 additional specimens mounted onto individual leafs placed within the same volume. (A scant few specimens, mostly on the individual leafs, were collected in Tenby, Wales, in 1853. One is captioned New Holland, the former name for Australia.) Folio. Purpose made volume, half burgundy morocco over brown marbled boards, "Sea-Weeds" titled in gilt to spine. Volume measures approximately 28 x 45 cm. Specimens vary greatly in size, the smallest measuring approximately 2 x 2 cm, and the largest spanning approximately 42 x 20 cm. Minor wear to boards, occasional creasing to album leafs, otherwise in very good condition, specimens retaining vivid colour and form, a noteworthy seaweed herbarium. A large volume houses this fine herbarium of over 100 impressive marine species, large and small benthic macroalgae mostly growing in the English Channel, some having been discovered not long before, the lot skillfully harvested by a nineteenth century botanist who sometimes managed to extract even the root system intact. The collector is unknown, though the volume possesses some evidence that he was well-travelled and presumably well-off. Many seaweed specimens gathered at St Leonards-on-Sea are dated November and December 1848, when the town was primarily a seaside resort for the wealthy. A few specimens placed separately in the volume were gathered in 1853 off the shoreline of Tenby, another spa resort town in Wales. And, possibly most interesting of all, is a vibrant sample of Gigartina speciosa, which was discovered in Western Australia in 1845, which is mounted to a leaf embossed 'Bath'. Melanospermeae (olive seaweeds), Rhodospermeae (red spore seaweeds), and Chlorospermeae (green seaweeds), are the three categories by which the preserved seaweeds are presented. The collector had clear intent for his work, labeling pages with tipped-in headings prior to embarking on his search for obscure, desirable, and little-known genera. As opposed to the random gatherings of a hobbyist, his findings are systematically organized, the album being laid out with a plan. A manuscript list also names a few "desirable plants to procure seeds of." The collection begins with an enormous leaf of Fucoideae Cystoseira, also known as bullwhip kelp, followed shortly thereafter by a large and beautifully defined Halidrys siliquosa or Sea Oak (H.C. Lyngbye, 1819). A large mauve-black Fucus vesiculosus is also beautifully intact with dramatic spherical air bladders. Better known as bladder wrack, it was discovered in 1811 and was the original source of iodine, once used extensively to treat goiter. Other varieties from the Fucales order of brown algae follow, including the Fucus serratus or the Toothed Wrack. Yet more in the so-called 'olive' category include the fine translucent pale green Laminaria Phyllitis, the Desmarestia, the Dictyoteae, the Chorda filum commonly called Sea Lace, and the complex Ectocarpus varieties. The red seaweeds section "Tribe II - Rhodospermeae" renders 21 unique genera for observation. Colourful, delicate, and enticing, some of these include unique varieties of Delessaria, a Nitophyllum laceratum (S.G. Gmelin) juxtaposed against a Nitophyllum Gmelini, the Rhodymenia palmata (Greville 1830) commonly known as dulse, the Chylocladia articulata, the striking dense and tufted Polysiphonia, the Polysiphonia elongata, and other from this genus of filamentous red algae which is known now to have about 19 species on the coasts of the British Isles. Of special interest is a page with samples of three types of the holotype species Griffithsia which was named in honour of the discoverer, pioneering female phycologist from North Devon, Amelia Warren Griffiths (1768-1858). Finally, the third section yields the delicate and bright green Ulva or sea lettuce, three Conferva, a spectacular example of coldwater Porphyra laciniata which has a textural appearance of vellum, and a few little enteromorpha. The collector's captions frequently note a page reference to a volume titled 'Marine Botany' and also indicate specimens described by 'Sowerby' the latter being English naturalist and botanist James Sowerby (1757-1822) who published and illustrated the enormous multi-volume work "English Botany" that was issued between 1790 and 1813. This is a very large volume measuring 28 x 45 cm and featuring numerous large seaweed specimens. Seaweed is a loose colloquial term encompassing macroscopic, multi-cellular, benthic marine algae. The term includes some members of the red, brown and green algae. A seaweed may belong to one of several groups of multi-cellular algae: the red algae, green algae, and brown algae. As these three groups are not thought to have a common multicellular ancestor, the seaweeds are a polyphyletic group. In addition, some tuft-forming bluegreen algae (Cyanobacteria) are sometimes considered to be seaweeds. Phycology is the scientific study of algae. The branch of life science is often regarded as a subdiscipline of botany. Algae are important plants as primary producers in aquatic ecosystems. Most algae are eukaryotic, photosynthetic organisms that live in a wet environment. They are distinguished from the higher plants by a lack of true roots, stems or leaves. Many species are single-celled and microscopic, including phytoplankton and other microalgae. Others are multi-cellular to one degree or another, some of these growing to large size (for example, seaweeds such as kelp and Sargassum). St Leonards-on-Sea (commonly known as St Leonards) has been part of Hastings, East Sussex, England, since the late 19th century though it retains a sense of separate identity. It lies to the west of central Hastings. The original part of the settlement was laid out in the early 19th century as a new town: a place of elegant houses designed for the well-off; it also included a central public garden, a hotel, an archery, assembly rooms and a church. The land that is now St Leonards was once owned by the Levett family, an ancient Sussex gentry family of Norman origin. James Burton, a successful London architect who had developed large areas of Bloomsbury and the houses around Regent's Park, purchased land from the Eversfield estate to put into being his concept of a seaside resort. The land was part of Gensing Farm, and included a small wooded valley leading down to the sea. Work on the plan started in early 1826. Before he died in 1837 St Leonards (Royal Victoria) Hotel, the South Colonnade, an archway marking the town boundary with Hastings, and tall seafront houses (as far as 71 Marina) had also been completed. In 1850 his son Decimus started the second phase of building, by acquiring more land and extending the development westward. Today's St Leonards has extended well beyond that original design, although the original town still exists within it. . Very Good.

        Clergyman?s Sunday School Visiting Diary chronicling visits made to the homes of students of the Sabbath School of the 2nd Presbyterian Church, Troy NY, commencing April 6, 1847-1864.

      1847. According to the first entry (hidden in the back of the book) the effort of home visits was under- taken by the superintendent ?for a little time past, I have been troubled by efforts made by Mrs. Warren, patron of the Episcopal church, to induce poor families whose children have been in our SS to take the children from us, and send them to Episcopal SS (se visit, June 12, 1847). Were it to a Baptist or Methodist S.S. I should be glad to see the children lease us to enjoy the greater advantage offered; but I feel that the instruction under which they would come in the SS would not be evangelical, and gladly would I retain them with us. But apparently cannot succeed in doing so, June 14 - Yesterday I was notified by a teacher of two other families the children of which were leaving our school for the Episcopal as above?. This is followed by 70 plus pages of documentation of visits that include details on the home environment, social conditions, the sobriety and religious beliefs of the children?s fathers and more. Most of the interaction is with the mothers of the children. When troubling situations arose, the superintendent would say a prayer. The book documents the daily affairs of the less fortunate parishioners over a period of greater than twenty years. There are a few entries at the end of the diary for the early 1880s. Measures 11" x 8 1/2".
