        [Manuscript Document calling for the people of Tehuantepec to join the revolt. Beginning] "El ciudadano José Gregorio Melendez Gral. de Division y Comandante en jefe de las fuerzas de Juchitan. A los Tehuantepecanos...."

      [Juchitan / Chiapas, Mexico], 1850. Broadside. A very good copy, tiny tear at one edge, minor creasing, fold, old stab marks at margin.. 1 sheet. Jose Gregorio Melendez (1793-1853) was long a leader in the Zapotec peoples' rebellions against the state government's control of local resources including land and salt, with uprisings in 1827, 1834, 1844-45, 1847, and finally in 1850-53 during which period this call for support was issued. Though Benito Juarez, who was interim governor of Oaxaca, appointed Melendez as coronel of the National Guard of the Isthmus, which made him defacto head of the armed forces created to defend against the U.S. invasion of the port of Coatzacoalcos, that only increased the conflict, and in early March 1850, Melendez routed the garrison at Tehuantepec. He and about 1000 men fled to Juchitian, while Juarez refused to negotiate. After more bloody battles, Melendez retired to Chiapas, but eventually fearing persecution there, fled back to the Isthmus, inflicting further havoc, and, as this document shows, tried to expand the base of his rebellion: "A los Tehuantepecanos. Yo soy el hombre, a quien todos vosotros debeis conocer, por el que defendiendo siempre los principios de libertados ha dado las garantías desde el ańo de 1847, la y la propiedad de nuestros hogares. Recordad, que yo he sido vuestro gobernador, vuestra autoridad política, y el hombre que, colocado al frente de vuestros negocios, os ha sabido guardar y defender. Tehuantepanecos: Auxiliares todos de los Barrios żme teneis fe? Unios a mi causa; yo os protejo..." "...do you all have faith in me? Unite to my cause; I will protect you all; I will care for you all..." Dated: "Juchitan Noviembre 17 de 1850= Jose Gregorio Melendez." This is a copy, most likely of a broadside, from the "Secretaria del Gobierno del Estado Libre y Soberano de Chiapas." Scribal signature illegible. We could locate no other documents by Melendez nor this revolt. A scarce document from a period in Mexican history now forgotten (See: żQuién fue José Gregorio Meléndez? in Revista Guidxizá, número 16, junio de 2011).

        Grammatica Linguae Thai.:

      Bangkok ex typographia collegii Assumptionis B.M.V. in civitate regia Krung Theph maha nakhon si Ajuthaja. 1850 - Jean-Baptiste Pallegoix, 1805 – 1862, arrived in Bangkok in 1830, and was appointed vicar apostolic of Eastern Siam in 1841. He became close to King Mongkut and was influential in establishing political and commercial relations between Thailand and France. His main claim to fame was in the development of printing in Thailand. He received his first press in 1838, and published his first primer, in romanized Thai, in September that year. A number of tracts and school books were printed in the following years in Thai, Annamese, Cochinese, and Malay, but all in roman characters. This grammar appears to be both the first full length book to be printed in Thailand, and the first to use Thai characters. Pallegoix was able to use Thai type acquired from the American Protestant missionaries in Bangkok. The grammar also contains much information on Buddhism, and on Thai history and customs. Winship, Michael: Early Thai Printing to 1851. (Crossroads, Volume 3, Number1) A very good copy bound in contemporary half vellum. Some minor spotting and occasional staining to text. First edition 4to, pp.[ii], 241, [1, blank, 1, index, blank].

        A monograph of the odontophorinae, or partridges of America

      London: Published by the author, 1850. FIRST EDITION. Complete with half title, list of subscribers, and 32 magnificent hand-coloured plates by Gould and Henry Constantine Richter. Contemporary morocco with elaborately gilt decorated spine, insignificant repair on spine, all edges gilt, marbled paste-downs; some light spotting on first and last blank leaves, otherwise an excellent copy. First edition of Gould's splendid folio on the partridges of America, in which he celebrates the unassuming game bird in a grand and sumptuous style. He here expertly illustrates 35 partridge species in their natural surroundings, greatly enlarging their recorded number. Each spectacular plate is accompanied by detailed information on each figure, including measurements, behavior, and habitats. Gould (1804-81), one of the most innovative, productive, and versatile ornithological illustrators of the nineteenth century, began his study of birds and taxidermy while assisting his father at Windsor. He became taxidermist to the Zoological Society of London in 1827 and began publishing his own books on birds beginning in 1832 with his landmark work A Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains. "In the field of natural history the accomplishments of John Gould are truly monumental. No other ornithologist has ever exceeded (or will ever exceed) the number of Gould's bird discoveries and the magnitude and splendor of his folio publications" (Sauer, John Gould, xv).

        PHOTOGENIC MANIPULATION: PART II. CONTAINING THE THEORY AND PLAIN INSTRUCTIONS IN THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY, OR THE PRODUCTION OF PICTURES THROUGH THE AGENCY OF LIGHT. DAGUERREOTYPE

      London: George Knight and Sons, 1850. Fourth edition. 16mo., 60 pp., illustrations in text, 4 pp. adverts. Original printed paper wrappers. The front wrapper bears the contemporary signature of the original owner and is moderately soiled, with wear and partial separation at the spine. The lower tips of several text leaves are creased. A near very good example, housed in a newly made cloth with paper labels pamphlet case. Initially written by George Thomas Fisher, Jr., and published in 1843 by George Knight in two parts, the first concerned with the paper process, the second with the daguerreian; both with greatly reduced texts. By 1845, the two parts were separated and published independently, and together. In 1848, after Fisher's death, Robert J. Bingham is listed as the author, and the manuals were expanded with new advances in the processes. This 1850 edition is called the fourth edition, as was the 1848 printing. See Gernsheim, INCUNABULA OF BRITISH PHOTOGRAPHIC LITERATURE, No. 682, and Roosens and Salu No. 6367 which fail to note this 1850 fourth edition. All editions of this work are rare, with WorldCat locating only two copies dated 1850, but both are the fifth edition.

        Rotterdam, Oude Haven - Sabatier, ca. 1850.

      DE OUDE HAVEN TE ROTTERDAM.?Rotterdam Le Port?. Lithografie gemaakt door L?on Jean-Babtiste Sabatier, uitgegeven rond 1850 door Jacomme voor Bulla & Jouy te Parijs, Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 39,5 x 57 cm.Rond 1850 heeft Rotterdam nog de kenmerkende driehoeksvorm, die begrensd wordt door de vestinggrachten aan Coolsingel en Goudsesingel en door de Maas.Rotterdam is een kleine maar aardige stad, die op menige buitenstaander indruk maakt. Het welgestelde deel van de Rotterdammers woont bezuiden de Hoogstraat, waar de havens zijn. In dit buitendijkse deel van Rotterdam, de ?Waterstad? (op de prent links), houden eb en vloed de grachten schoon. In het binnendijkse deel van de stadsdriehoek, benoorden de Hoogstraat, wonen dichtopeengepakt de arbeiders die in de haven en de industrie werken. Dit overbevolkte deel van de stad stinkt omdat menselijk en dierlijk afval (illegaal) in het nagenoeg stilstaande water in sloten en grachten wordt gestort.Halverwege de negentiende eeuw veranderde het karakter van de Rotterdamse haven. Lange tijd had het accent gelegen op de zogeheten ?eigenhandel?: handelaren kochten goederen in, sloegen die op in pakhuizen en verkochten ze weer. Rond 1850 werd de ?transitohandel? belangrijker: de klanten in het (veelal Duitse) achterland kochten hun handelswaar direct bij de producent en lieten ze in Rotterdam, eventueel na bewerking, alleen nog maar overslaan op binnenvaartschepen.Op de prent zien we in de Oude Haven, tussen Geldersche kaai en Spaansche kaai, zee- en binnenvaartschepen in de weer. In de verte torent de Laurenskerk.L?on Jean-Babtiste Sabatier (? - 1887) was een Franse schilder, graveur en tekenaar die meerdere schilderachtige stadsgezichten maakte. Hij exposeerde in de Salon te Parijs van 1827 tot 1870 en kreeg een bronzen medaille in 1839. Een ander stadsgezicht gemaakt door Sabatier vindt u hier.Prijs: ?2.250,- (incl. lijst).

        The Present State of Moral Principle in the Supreme Government of the British Colonial Empire... Not Published.

      London: Prined by G. Barclay, 1850. Slim octavo, 45 pp., in recent tan half calf, marbled boards. Very rare privately published work by the former Governor of South Australia, and the last serious effort he made to rehabilitate his reputation in his vicious quarrels with his successor, George Grey.Gawler, who had been Governor of South Australia from 1838-41, had returned to London with his reputation in tatters, in no small part due to the energetic self-promotion of Governor Grey. Gawler had petitioned hard to have his efforts recognised, but was trumped by Grey at every turn, and by the late 1840s had all but given up any public role. It is interesting, therefore, that in 1850 he wrote the present work, 'a petition to the Queen seeking redress for the injustices done to him by successive secretaries of state. He accused George Grey of dishonesty and claimed that through his own efforts South Australia was 'the only cheap and brilliantly successful new colony in modern history'. On 11 July 1850 he was informed that Earl Grey had laid the petition before the Queen 'but could not advise her Majesty to give any orders on the subject' (ADB).Gawler's publication is understandably rare. Ferguson originally found only a copy in the then Public Library of South Australia, and another has since been noted in the National Library. Very good.

        New York 1850 ? Louis Le Breton.

      NEW YORK 1850 ?BUSTLING WITH ENERGYLithograph by Auguste Bry after the design of Louis Le Breton, published in Paris by E. Savary around 1850. Coloured by a later hand. Size (image): 32,5 x 48,5 cmLouis Le Breton (1818-1866) was a surgeon in the French Navy from 1836-48. During that period he made several very long expeditions including Dumont d'Urville's second circumnavigation (1837-40) aboard the Astrolabe. During that journey and on subsequent trips, he made drawings and watercolour views of noteworthy places, including Sacramento and San Francisco, New Orleans and Boston, Rio de Janeiro, sites in Oceania, New Zealand and Africa, as well as this view approaching New York. Le Breton's watercolours of the Astrolabe voyage were exhibited at the Salon de Paris during the years 1841-48.The boat in this New York scene is a paddlewheel steamship-triple masted sailing ship: the smoky, dangerous transitional boats that ultimately became all steam and built of steel. We see it steam, pumping out a black funnel of smoke, towards the East River, Fort William on Governor's Island on the right, Fort Clinton at the Battery on the left. As we look at the city, there are a number of fanciful architectural additions mixed with the buildings that were actually there. This is however clearly based on first-hand impressions. The scene the visitor to New York in the 1840s encountered would have been nearly overwhelming. There were far more boats in the harbour than there are today. The lower portion of the island was lined with piers and warehouses. There was an immense amount of activity , both import and export, rapidly establishing New York as the primary American port.Le Breton, in a characteristically French way, added elegant turrets and spires and made the warehouses more evocative than they could have been, but in all communicating a true impression of a city exuding energy.Price: ? 2.950,- (incl. frame).

        Neuer Anti-Kant oder Prüfung der Kritik der reinen Vernunft nach den in Bolzano's Wissenschaftslehre niedergelegten Begriffen. Bautzen: A. Weller, 1850.

      - Very rare first edition of Bernhard Bolzano's radical criticisms of Kant, produced in collaboration with his friend and pupil Franz Prihonsky and published shortly after his death. Bolzano was born in 1781, the year in which Kant's Critique of Pure Reason was published, and died in 1848, the year of Gottlob Frege's birth. As a 'Kant & Bolzano' conference announcement put it (University of Oldenburg, 2011), these dates are highly symbolic because Bolzano’s work is an essential link between transcendental and analytic philosophy. 'The value of New Anti-Kant rests at once in the fabulous richness of Bolzano's own theories as well as the diligence and insight with which he approached Kant's Critique. After a 'Preface' that motivates the need for such a project, the volume begins with an 'Introduction' that contains a concise and very helpful summary of those of Bolzano's doctrines that are most relevant to the criticisms that follow. The main part, the 'Treatise', consists of a systematic examination of the entirety of the first Critique. Towards the end, it also engages in an extensive discussion of the moral theory found in Kant's other writings. Throughout [it] alternates between extremely economical, well-articulated little digests of Kant's main doctrines following the order in which they appear in the Critique, followed by 'Objections' and 'Remarks' in which Prihonsky deftly recapitulates the essence of Bolzano's concerns with the Kantian philosophy . Beyond the originality and intelligence of its critical perspective, New Anti-Kant thus has the merit of offering an exhaustive discussion of Kant's philosophy, one which devotes its attention to both the doctrines of the Critique that have traditionally been of most interest to Kant scholars as well as those doctrines that are too often overlooked. By thoughtfully engaging with the full scope of Kant's views, New Anti-Kant also introduces readers to Bolzano's own positions in both theoretical and practical philosophy, as well as his philosophy of religion (Sandra Lapointe and Clinton Tolley, 'Introduction' to the Palgrave Macmillan English edition, 2014). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 12mo, xxiv, 233, [1] pp., rebound in modern half cloth with the original printed front wrapper laid down, title-page with a small paper flaw and lightly browned at outer edge, otherwise internally fresh and clean, without stamps, inscriptions or any other marks, a very good copy.
