        Correspondence on the Subject of Convict Discipline and Transportation . presented to both houses of Parliament . May 1848.

      - London, William Cowes 1848. Foolscap publisher's printed wrapper (spine chipped); 144pp and seven folding plans (six with added colouring). A very good copy. Much of this is, naturally, concerned with the concerted push by the colonies to end transportation which, in concert with a fair amount of practical detail about the state of the system and planned reforms and reductions, is not without interest. Added are items like the specifications for a new female penitentiary. The real appeal here, though, is the detailed report on the Prisoners' Barracks at Hobart and plans for improvements by its superintendent James Boyd. Described and illustrated in plan and section are the present, and the proposed and improved cells and 'dormitories'; the appalling cells underneath the chapel; and the tread-wheel. The tread-wheel, punishment for refractory prisoners, was some 50 feet long in a room 68 feet long. Up to 150 prisoners at a time were in this room, 'totally inadequate' as Boyd said. Of greater concern was that there was no separation of prisoners either on or off the wheel ('distressing evils') and Boyd proposes (illustrated in three of the plans) dividing the whole - the wheel and the room - into series of stalls and boxes, isolating the prisoners on and off the wheel. This is less stable-like than you may think, the average stable is airy and commodious in comparison. The wheel seems to have been introduced into British prisons in the 1820s and lasted well into the 20th century despite the agitations of reformers throughout that whole time. Photographs of prison wheels at the end of the century show prisoners in stalls so, while I can't claim that Boyd originated the idea, there is no doubt that such plans were put into being throughout the prison system.

        Autograph letter signed to an unidentified correspondent

      London, 1848. Hooker, William Jackson (1785-1865). Autograph letter signed to an unidentified correspondent. [London,] Royal Gardens, Kew, Nov. 16, 1848. 2-1/2pp. 178 x 112 mm. Fine.Hooker, the first full-time director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, devoted himself to the study of botany from an early age, specializing in mosses, liverworts and other cryptogamia. He served as regius professor of botany at the University of Glasgow from 1820 to 1841, when he was appointed to head Kew Gardens. Under Hooker's leadership Kew grew from eleven acres to its present size of nearly 300 acres, and its collections vastly increased, largely due to a network of Hooker's former students who brought in specimens from around the world. Hooker's own herbarium, which contained some 4000 volumes and one million dried plant specimens, was purchased by the British government for the nation after Hooker's death. Hooker was the author of over two dozen works on botany, including British Jungermanniae (1816), which established hepaticology (the study of liverworts) as a separate field; he also edited several botanical journals. In his letter Hooker thanks his correspondent for sending him plant specimens from India:"The two cases of Plants for Dr. Falconer were delivered in good time. I have now to thank you for a parcel received today from Mr. Dalzell, Bombay, containing some very interesting Plants. "Truly I have much more novelty from the East of India than any other portion of that vast territory.""Dr. Falconer" refers to Hugh Falconer (1808-65), the distinguished botanist, geologist and paleontologist who was the first to come up with a "punctuated equilibrium" theory of evolution. Falconer spent many years in India, where he ran the Saharanpur and Calcutta botanical gardens and put together an enormous collection of plant and fossil specimens from the region.Hooker also touches on the activities of his son, naturalist Joseph Dalton Hooker (1817-1911):"You know, I dare say that Kinchinjunga [i.e., Kangchenjunga, in the Himalayas5] is now ascertained to be the highest mountain in the world, 28,172 ft.-about 60 miles north of Darjeeling. Dr. Hooker is now gone to explore it, as much as he can."Joseph Hooker spent three years (1848-50) exploring the Himalayas, and was the first European to collect plants from the region. Kangchenjunga, which straddles the border between India and Nepal, was believed to be the world's tallest mountain until 1852, when the results of the British Great Trigonometric Survey revealed that Mt. Everest was the taller peak.

Stamp of the Middlesex Hospital Library on title and a few other leaves.First Edition in Book Form. Garrison-Morton 3683. "The advancement of British dentistry is inseparably connected scientifically, practically and from the point of view of professionalism with the name of Sir John Tomes" (Hoffmann-Axthelm, History of Dentistry, p. 391; see also pp. 392-93). Tomes invented numerous dental instruments, including a set of anatomically correct forceps for tooth extraction. He contributed much toward raising the professional status of dentistry, co-founding the Odontological Society, persuading the Royal College of Surgeons to grant a dental license, helping to establish the Dental Hospital of London, and serving as first president of the British Dental Association. In 1856 Tomes described and drew the dentin fibrils now named for him (see G-M 3683.1). His Course of Lectures, originally published serially in the Medical Gazette, won the praise of Virchow.

        We The Drowned

      Harvill Secker,, 2010. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. SIGNED and DATED in publication month - 15th April 2010. UK First edition. Fine unread copy. SIGNED and DATED to the title page. Scarce signed. True UK first. This is an epic drama of adventure, courage, ruthlessness and passion by one of Scandinavia's most acclaimed storytellers. In 1848, a motley crew of Danish sailors sets sail from the small island town of Marstal to fight the Germans. Not all of them return - and those who do will never be the same. Among them is the daredevil Laurids Madsen, who promptly escapes again into the anonymity of the high seas. As soon as he is old enough, his son Albert sets off in search of his missing father on a voyage that will take him to the furthest reaches of the globe and into the clutches of the most nefarious company. Bearing a mysterious shrunken head, and plagued by premonitions of bloodshed, he returns to a town increasingly run by women - among them a widow intent on liberating all men from the tyranny of the sea. From the barren rocks of Newfoundland to the lush plantations of Samoa, from the roughest bars in Tasmania, to the frozen coasts of northern Russia, "We, The Drowned" spans four generations, two world wars and a hundred years. Carsten Jensen conjures a wise, humorous, thrilling story of fathers and sons, of the women they love and leave behind, and of the sea's murderous promise. This is a novel destined to take its place among the greatest seafaring literature.

        Vorlesungen über die psychische Anthropologie [.], herausgegeben von Dr. H. Ahrens. (= Handschriftlicher Nachlass. Herausgegeben von Freunden und Schülern Desselben. Erste Abtheilung, erste Reihe: Analytische Philosophie, Bd. 2).,

      Göttingen, in Commission der Dieterich‘schen Buchhandlung, 1848. - Erstausgabe. - Der Philosoph Karl Christian Friedrich Krause (1781-1832) studierte 1797-1800 in Jena Theologie, Mathematik und Philosophie (bei Fichte und Schelling) und wurde zum Dr. phil. promoviert. 1802 habilitierte sich Krause in Jena und las bis 1804 als Privatdozent über Naturrecht, Naturphilosophie, Mathematik und Logik. 1805 trat er in eine Freimaurerloge ein und war 1805-14 Lehrer an der Dresdner Ingenieurakademie. Danach in Berlin tätig, kehrte er 1815 nach Dresden zurück, unternahm 1817 eine Studienreise durch Italien und Frankreich und lebte seit 1823 als Privatdozent in Göttingen. Von dort 1831 wegen angeblicher revolutionärer Gesinnung ausgewiesen, ging er nach München, wo Schelling seine akademische Situierung behinderte. Vor allem von Fichtes "objektiver" Philosophie geprägt, entwickelte Krause ein System des Panentheismus, nach dem Gott alle Dinge, Natur und Geist, in sich begreift, jedoch noch übersteigt. Von Kant beeinflußt, suchte er die Spaltung zwischen Subjekt und Objekt in der Einheit der "Denklehre" und der "Schaulehre", von Philosophie und Kunst zu überwinden. Über seinen Schüler Heinrich Ahrens entfalteten Krauses Pädagogik und seine Philosophie vor allem in Spanien große Wirkung (Krausismo). - Einbandkanten berieben u. bestoßen.

        Personal Recollections of the late Daniel O'Connell, MP 1775-1847

      186, Strand, London.: Chapman and Hall, 1848 2 vols complete, near fine, 1st ed. In uniform, half tan calf with red marbled boards, some blind tooling, corners and edges brushed. Spines, attractive decorative gilt tooling, raised bands, titles in gilt to red and green calf labels, edges brushed. Internally, brown endpapers, text block edges sprinkled red, no inscriptions, printed by C Whiting, Beaufort House, Strand. Vol 1, 1848, [3], (iv-vi), [1], 2-312 pp. Vol 2, 1848, [2], [1], 2-231 pp, [1] adverts. A superb copy. (Allibone 1448.2802). O'Connell, Daniel [known as the Liberator], Irish nationalist leader who while in popular esteem O'Connell is the quintessential Irish national champion, his international significance is underestimated. He was a key figure in the emergence of European democracy and no Irish person before or since has commanded so much attention on the continent as he did in his lifetime. Similarly forgotten to a large extent is his role as an advocate of the rights of those civilly disadvantaged such as Jews, black slaves, and Australian Aborigines. Universalist and nationalist, champion of the weak and truculent bully, man of principle and shameless opportunist, O'Connell remains, like Napoleon or Gladstone, one of those figures with whom historians will never even imagine that they have finished.

        Personal Recollections of the late Daniel O'Connell, MP 1775-1847

      186, Strand, London.: Chapman and Hall, 1848 2 vols complete, near fine, 1st ed. In uniform, half tan calf with red marbled boards, some blind tooling, corners and edges brushed. Spines, attractive decorative gilt tooling, raised bands, titles in gilt to red and green calf labels, edges brushed. Internally, brown endpapers, text block edges sprinkled red, no inscriptions, printed by C Whiting, Beaufort House, Strand. Vol 1, 1848, [3], (iv-vi), [1], 2-312 pp. Vol 2, 1848, [2], [1], 2-231 pp, [1] adverts. A superb copy. (Allibone 1448.2802). O'Connell, Daniel [known as the Liberator], Irish nationalist leader who while in popular esteem O'Connell is the quintessential Irish national champion, his international significance is underestimated. He was a key figure in the emergence of European democracy and no Irish person before or since has commanded so much attention on the continent as he did in his lifetime. Similarly forgotten to a large extent is his role as an advocate of the rights of those civilly disadvantaged such as Jews, black slaves, and Australian Aborigines. Universalist and nationalist, champion of the weak and truculent bully, man of principle and shameless opportunist, O'Connell remains, like Napoleon or Gladstone, one of those figures with whom historians will never even imagine that they have finished.

        Réflexions et menus-propos d'un peintre genevois ou Essais sur le beau dans les Arts (.). Précédés d'une notice sur la vie et les ouvrages de l'auteur par Albert Aubert.

      - Paris, J.-J. Dubochet, Lechevalier et Cie, 1848. 2 volumes petit in-8, plein veau blond glacé de l'époque, dos à nerfs ornés de caissons garnis d'un riche décor doré aux petits fers, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin bordeaux, datés en pied, filet d'encadrement doré sur les plats, roulette sur les coupes, tranches peigne (accroc de cuir à un plat), (4), xxxvi, 342 p. et (4), 350 p. Première édition collective, en partie originale. "Les textes qui forment ce recueil furent conçus sous forme de fascicules, entre 1830 et 1843 ( ). Dans ce travail théorique majeur, Töpffer veut donner une conception nouvelle des arts du dessin, en les dégageant du canon classique de l'imitation. Pour sa démonstration, qu'il construit a contrario, il oppose la photographie, qui vient à peine d'être inventée, aux Beaux-arts. Ainsi dans le texte 'De la plaque Daguerre', la photographie est-elle présentée comme un procédé voué à la simple imitation mécanique de la nature, tandis que le dessin apparaît, lui, comme un art libre, poétique et spirituel" (Charles Grivel). Ex-libris armorié gravé de Sylvain van de Weyer (Louvain, 1802- Londres, 1874), avocat, diplomate et homme d’Etat belge qui fut membre du Gouvernement provisoire en 1830 et Premier ministre entre 1845 et 1846. Fine et jolie reliure de l'époque.
