        2 items pertaining to Bethlehem Hospital 1) Copies of all Reports of the Commissioners in Lunacy, and the Evidence presented by them last Year to the Home Office, as to the State and Management of Bethlehem Hospital, and of all Correspondence thereon 2) The observations of the Governors upon the report of the Commissioners in Lunacy to the Secretary of State on Bethlem Hospital; with appendices

      The House of Commons; David Batten for The General Committee, London 1852 - 451; lv, 124 p. 24 cm. Cloth hardcover with discoloured spine and edges. Spine ends softened. Corners bumped. Small tears in hinges. Some spotting and thumbing. Bethlehem, Bethlem, or Bedlam. Call it what you wish, this hospital's name has become synonymous with the mistreatment of the mentally ill. By the nineteenth century, however, attitudes towards "lunatics" were changing. As these documents from 1852 indicate, the Commissioners in Lunacy attempted to oversee the welfare of patients in asylums and operate as the guardians of the reform process. The seventh Earl of Shaftesbury, referred to on page 35 of the first section, was the head of the Commission from its founding in 1845 until his death in 1881. Though a far cry from Bedlam's early days when the public were charged admission to view inmates as a form of entertainment, the reports in this volume indicate that abuse must still have occurred, though hospital workers and the Board of Governors did their best to deny it.

        Heraldry Manuscript

      Wraps. Marbled paper on card. . Very Good. N.d., circa 1852. Oblong 4to. 26 by 37 cm. Ten leaves, or 18 pp., with thirty different watercolors of armorial banners. The images are extraordinarily bright and beautiful; these paintings were by an accomplished, confident hand. The imagery is of three basic types: squarish banners held up by stylized animals, long triangular-ish armorial pennants, and armorial rectangular paintings that are not shown as part of a flag or banner. The presentation is chronological based on monarchs, beginning with Edward III and running to Henry VIII and his wives, Anne and Jane. The name of the particular monarch associated with an image is written in ink with a neat hand. The dating is based on a watermark, and the artist, on a pencil inscription.

        UNCLE TOM'S CABIN

      1852 - [illustrated by Cruikshank] With Twenty-Seven Illustrations on Wood by George Cruikshank, Esq. London: John Cassell, 1852. 1+8 pp ads, undated except for pre-notification of Cassell's 1853 almanacs. Original blind-stamped blue cloth with gilt-decorated spine, all page edges gilt. First English Edition (? -- see below). Since Harriet Beecher Stowe's monumental novel was unprotected by international copyright, as soon as it was published in America it was immediately published in some thirty editions in England. In what is labeled the "first English edition" by Hildreth, John Cassell produced the only edition to appear serially (13 parts, the first with three plates by the famous illustrator George Cruikshank, and the other parts with two each). This is the book form of that serial part edition -- by which time there were, in fact, several editions by several London publishers that vie for the honor of being "first". The Cassell edition is sought not so much for being "first" but for being the earliest edition to be substantially illustrated -- on either side of the Atlantic.~This is a very good-plus copy, perhaps near-fine (very minor wear at the extremities, spine gilt a little dull). Hildreth pp 8-9. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Achilli Vs. Newman. A Full Report Of This Most Extraordinary.

      1852 - The Libel Trial of Cardinal Newman [Trial]. Newman, John Henry [1801-1890], Defendant. Achilli Vs. Newman: A Full Report Of This Most Extraordinary Trial For Seduction And Adultery Charged Against Dr. Achilli, The Apostate Catholic Priest, By The Celebrated Dr. Newman, The Oxford Puseyite, Both Of Whom Are Seceders From Their Former Creeds. The Only Correct Edition, Being The Verbatim Testimony From The London Reports. New York: Dewitt & Davenport, 1852. 31, [1] pp. Text printed in parallel columns. Includes one-page publisher advertisement. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-3/4"). Recent stiff marbled wrappers, printed title label to spine. Light toning, faint stains to title page and a few other leaves, some edgewear and minor tears to final leaf. "6" in early hand to head of title page, otherwise clean. * Only American edition. In 1852 Newman, an English Roman Catholic priest, delivered a lecture that criticized the anti-Catholic writings of Dr. Giacinto Achilli, an ex-Dominican friar. Newman also said Achilli was not trustworthy because he was a seducer and adulterer. This led Achilli to sue Newman for libel. Tainted by a recent wave of anti-Catholic sentiment, the criminal proceedings were biased against Newman. Found guilty, he was sentenced to pay a fine of ?100. He also owed about ?14,000. for his defense, a sum that was quickly raised by public subscription. This pamphlet is prefaced with comments from the anonymous editor of the vicious anti-Catholic Confessional Unmasked. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 13357. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Little Linguist; or, a Complete Guide to English Philology: comprising a Grammar in Miniature, with all the rules of syntax; verbal distinctions, &c. and Numerous English Examples. The Whole Designed to Promote a habit of Perspicuity in Speaking and Writing the Language.

      London: W. S. Johnson "Nassau Steam Press." no date 1852 - 32mo, 78 x 42 mms., pp. 5], 4-96, 144, 134, 29 [30 blank, 31 - 56 Cities, Borough and Market Towns, 57 - 58 adverts], engraved frontispiece, additional engraved title-page, original publisher's gilt cloth with lozenge shape on each cover, spine blocked in gilt with title "Maunder's Little Treasury," all edges gilt; rear cover and part of spine affected by damp, some wear to extremities, with the autograph ownership of G. Berry 1946 on the front paste-down end-paper. Samuel Maunder (1785 - 1849) was an indefatigable compiler of reference works. ODNB notes: "Maunder's first book was The Little Lexicon, or, Multum in parvo of the English Language (1825). His next book, The Treasury of Knowledge and Library of Reference (1830), sold over 200,000 copies. The Biographical Treasury (1838) was frequently revised and reprinted and was brought up to date by W. L. R. Cates (1873, 1882). An interesting feature, used elsewhere, is the snippets of information and moral maxims printed in the four margins of each page. Other Treasuries were devoted to belles lettres (1841), history (1844), natural history (1848), and geography (1856 and 1860)." He died at his home in Gibson Sqaure, Islington, on 30 April 1849. The first edition of this work was published by Darton in 1847 (copies at University of Virginia, University of Indiana); this 1852 edition is found only in Indiana, formerly the copy of Ruth E. Adomeit. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

People, crates, and barrels cover the levee in the foreground. By 1851, Sacramento, not yet the capital of California, was an important center of communication and supplies for the mining camps, and the fires and floods that occasionally hit the city were events of major interest. This letter sheet was produced by Justh, Quirot & Co., one of the first and most important lithographic firms in San Francisco.

By the nineteenth century, however, attitudes towards "lunatics" were changing. As these documents from 1852 indicate, the Commissioners in Lunacy attempted to oversee the welfare of patients in asylums and operate as the guardians of the reform process. The seventh Earl of Shaftesbury, referred to on page 35 of the first section, was the head of the Commission from its founding in 1845 until his death in 1881. Though a far cry from Bedlam's early days when the public were charged admission to view inmates as a form of entertainment, the reports in this volume indicate that abuse must still have occurred, though hospital workers and the Board of Governors did their best to deny it.

        Vechtstreek - Nunnink + Kips, ca. 1852.

      FRAAIE GEDETAILLEERDE KAART VAN DE VECHTSTREEKBlad 1 uit een kaart van de provincie Utrecht, lithografie vervaardigd in of na 1852 door A.A. Nunnink (tekenaar) onder toezicht van Jan Hendrik Kips ("geadmitteerd landmeter'). Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) ca. 49,5 x 74,5 cm.In het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden werd in 1816 begonnen met de kadastrale kartering, naar Frans model. Dat behelsde een systematische opname, weergave en administratie van het grondeigendom, aanvankelijk vooral ten behoeve van het innen van grondbelasting, maar later ook ten behoeve van het vergroten van de rechtszekerheid inzake de eigendomsrechten op de grond. De kartering vond gemeentegewijs plaats; elke gemeente werd opgedeeld in een aantal secties die afhankelijk van de aard van het gebied op een schaal 1:1.250, 2.500 of 5.000 werden gekarteerd. De schatting van de oppervlakten en administratieve verwerking ervan was in 1831 gereed.Door deze karteringsarbeid beschikte men over een perceelsgewijs overzicht van de bewoning, grondgebruik en perceelsindeling van Nederland in die periode; bovendien van alle wijzigingen die sindsdien in het grondeigendom zijn opgetreden. Voor de kaart van de provincie Utrecht heeft Kips dankbaar van de kadastrale informatie gebruikgemaakt. Buiten de bebouwde kom zijn elk huis en elke opstal afzonderlijk weergegeven.De kaart werd al vrij snel door de actualiteit ingehaald. Op basis van nieuwe opmetingen en karteringen kwam het tussen 1850 en 1864 tot de productie van de "Topographische en Militaire Kaart van het Koningrijk der Nederlanden". Niettemin was de kaart van Kips voor een groter publiek beschikbaar, aangezien het militaire belang veel minder zwaar woog. Op de kaart zijn de toen nog in gebruik zijnde forten en linies dan ook niet ingevuld of als water ingetekend. Wel zijn deze defensie-objecten benoemd. Kips toont een duidelijk en evenwichtig vormgegeven beeld van het gebied in het midden van de 19de eeuw. Het Horstermeer en het Naardermeer zijn overeenkomstig de huidige werkelijkheid als waterpartijen aangeduid.De kaart van Nunnink en Kips werd voor het eerst uitgegeven in 1850. De Haarlemmermeer is in 1852 ingepolderd, dit herziene exemplaar van de kaart moet daarom rond die tijd zijn vervaardigd.Prijs: € 2.450,- (incl. lijst).
