Back, who had been with Franklin on both of his overland expeditions, was here sent out to locate John Ross, unreported after three winters in the Arctic. He traveled overland to Great Slave Lake, where he received news of Ross's return to England; Back however continued on, descending the Fish (now Back) River-- then unexplored--to the Arctic Ocean. This is the very scarce large paper Admiralty issue of the book that was produced to match the quarto issue of Beechey's Narrative. This was Thomas Sidney's copy, with his bookplate present on the front pastedown. Sidney was a City Counsellor for Farringdon Ward in 1843/4, and shortly afterwards in 1844, as Alderman of Billingsgate, a position he held for 36 years. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Stephen Douglas

      August 5, 1836. Manuscript Document Signed “Dennis Rockwell clk,” “Mat Stacy,” and “Sam’l S. Brooks,” one page, 15.5” x 12.5”. Morgan County, Illinois, August 5, 1836. Tanned at left edge, horizontal tear from right edge in blank area. Fine condition.

Docketed on verso “Abstract Votes for / Senator, additional / Senator & Representa / =tives in 1836.” Listing two candidates for “Senate,” two for “additional / Senator,” and 16 for “Representatives” (including misspelled “Stephen A. Doulass”), and each one’s vote in the 15 precincts of Morgan County. Statement beneath the tally: “We the undersigned do hereby certify that the above is a correct abstract of the votes given for Senator, Additional Senator, and Representatives to the State Legislature, at the several Precincts within said county, at the general Election held on the first day of August Eighteen Hundred & thirty six. Certified by us this 5th day of August AD 1836.”

Admitted to the bar in 1834, 21-year-old Stephen Arnold Douglas commenced practicing law in Jacksonville, Morgan County, Illinois. Elected State’s Attorney for the Morgan circuit in 1835, it was in this election in 1836 that Douglas began his legislative career, representing Morgan County in the Illinois House of Representatives from 1836-1837; one of his colleagues in the state legislature was Abraham Lincoln of the adjoining Sangamon County. In 1837, Douglas was appointed Register of the Land Office at Springfield. In 1838, the 27-year-old politician was the unsuccessful Democratic candidate for election to the 26th Congress. Appointed Secretary of State of Illinois during the sessions of the legislature in 1840 and 1841 and elected as one of the Judges of the State Supreme Court, he was referred to as “Judge Douglas” by Illinoisans even while serving in the U.S. House of Representatives (1843-1847) and the U.S. Senate (1847-1861).

In April 1836, Morgan County held the first county convention ever held in Illinois. The Whigs and the Democrats nominated their slate of candidates. In the August election, the six candidates receiving the most votes of the 16 running for the House were elected: Newton Cloud (1935), Stephen A. Douglas (1926), Joseph Morton (1768), John J. Hardin (1732), Richard Walker (1726), and William W. Happy (1694). The tally of all the candidates by precinct are recorded on this abstract. On December 1, 1836, Douglas resigned as State’s Attorney. When the Illinois House of Representatives convened, 23-year-old Stephen A. Douglas was its youngest member.

         Full Particulars of the Murder, That was Committed on the Body of...

      1836. "Horrid and Barbarous Murder Committed at Stapleton" [Broadside]. [Murder]. [Bartlett, Charles S. (d. 1837)]. [Lewis, Mary (d. 1836)]. Full Particulars of the Murder, That was Committed on the Body of Mary Lewis, By Charles S. Bartlett, her Son-in-Law, On Saturday, September 10, 1836. With the Copies of Two Letters, That he Wrote to his Wife and Father-in-Law; Also Giving an Account of the Funeral of the Murdered Woman. Bristol: John Bonner, [c.1837]. 20" x 15" broadside. Three woodcuts, the largest of these, depicting the murder, has coloring in red ink depicting blood coming from the head of the victim. Main text in three columns, verses at foot text in five columns. Moderate toning and light foxing, horizontal fold line through center, folds, repaired tears to upper left corner with loss of a few words, without loss of sense, a few small holes along fold. $4,500. * Bartlett was the leading actor of Inglestone's San Pareil Theatre company, who had been playing at the nearby annual fair at St. James' Barton, Bristol. He had been married to Sarah Lewis for only a couple of months before the discovery of his mother-in-law's body. It transpires that before their marriage Sarah's father had handed over a dowry of ?47 to Bartlett, with the caveat that no more money would be forthcoming until the death of Mary Lewis. Bartlett had been seen alone with Mary on a number of occasions in the days leading up to her murder. With evidence stacking up against him Bartlett was arrested and committed to trial, where he pleaded "not guilty." However, he was found guilty by the jury and executed on April 15, 1837. There is a vivid account of this case in the Newgate Calendar: www.exclassics.com/newgate/ng885.htm. No copies located on OCLC.

         Recollections of an Artillery Officer: Including Scenes and Adventures in Ireland, America, Flanders, and France

      London: Richard Bentley, 1836. Leatherbound. Very good. 2 vols.: viii, 342; vi, 328 p. 20 cm. Full leather with gold and blank impressing, burgundy spine labels, marbled endpapers and text block edges. Moderate wear. Bookplates on front pastedowns. Light foxing. Ink inscription on a front endpaper in vol. I. The author (1790? - 1845) journeyed to Ireland in 1810 to join the Royal Artillery as a Second Lieutenant. His first active military service was at the British defeat at New Orleans, and he appeared at Waterloo too late to join in the battle. While his memoirs may be of interest to military historians, they may be even more appealing to theatre buffs. Much of Hill's spare time was spent attending theatrical presentations or performing as an amateur actor himself.

         The Trials and Execution of the Six Malefactors Who was [sic].

      1836 - Unrecorded 1814 London Execution Broadside [Broadside]. [Executions]. The Trials and Execution of the Six Malefactors Who was [sic] Executed This Morning in the Old Bailey. [London]: Pigott, Printer, Old-St[reet], [c.1814]. 13-3/4" x 8-1/2" broadside with recent archival-paper backing. Woodcut execution scene depicting six bodies hanging from a gallows below headline. Text in two columns. Light browning and negligible light soiling, a few minor creases with negligible loss to text (due to a printing flaw), "August 22nd 1814" in contemporary hand to right of woodcut. A well-preserved copy. $2,500. * This is the only known copy of this gallows broadside recording six simultaneous executions in London on 22 August 1814, a capital display excessive even for that noose-happy age. Henry Lye and John Field, burglars, Michael Maroney, John Ashton, and Francis Sturgess, highwaymen, and John Mitchell, forger, all met their end with a single drop from the gibbet, and the broadside memorializing them is illustrated with a crude woodcut of the six malefactors after their launch into eternity. Each went relatively without incident, save Ashton, who had been in a state of insanity some days. When he came on the drop he began to dance, clap his hands, and, huzzaing, exclaimed "I am Lord Wellington." After drop had fallen, he sprung up onto the platform, began to dance again and exclaimed, "am I not Lord Wellingtonnow?" The executioner was obliged to push him off, and he died in great agony.

Henry (Heinrich) Kurtz (1796-1874) came to America in 1817 at the age of 21. He became a pastor at the Western Pennsylvania parish in 1823. Right from the beginning there were rumblings of dissatisfaction due to his advanced ideas about communal movements and his blunt, at times untactful behavior. He resigned and left for Columbiana County in Ohio and on to Starck County soon after where he became a printer and planner for communal society. In 1825 the first issue of his "Wiedergefundenes Paradies" (Found Again Paradise) was published. Among many other contributions in 1826 Kurtz published the constitution of the Harmony Society, a Christian theosophy and pietist society, originally founded in Germany Johann Georg Rapp, who's Indiana settlement had been sold to Robert Owen who renamed the society "New Harmony." In the same year the first meeting of Kurtz's friends of the Christliche Industrie Gesellschaft Concordia took place in the same year, a society to establish an educational institute, a house for the care of the elderly, a library, a printing shop, a general hospital and a Union church. Among the many publications of the printing shop was the New Testament, a translation into German by Martin Luther in 1836. The first German Lutheran New Testament published in America was printed in 1743.

There is a little rubbing but overall- outstanding. Henningsen (1815-1877) was a writer, mercenary soldier and munitions expert. He was born in Brussels of Danish-Irish descent. He entered the service of Don Carlos in 1834 and rose to be captain of the bodyguard to General Tomas de Zumalacarregui. After the signing of the Lord Eliot Convention of April 1835, Henningsen returned to England but soon went back to Spain in the rank of lieutenant-colonel and joined the Carlist expedition that threatened Madrid and Aragon. He fought at the battle of Villar de los Navarros (24 August 1837), a Carlist victory, and then headed the Carlist lancers and was attacked near Madrid by Liberal (Isabeline) forces. Henningsen distinguished himself by leading a column against these forces, capturing the outer defences of Madrid. However, as Don Carlos was unable to send reinforcements, he was taken prisoner but released on parole. Thus ended his participation in the first Carlist War, but Henningsen later fought in Russia, Hungary, Nicaragua and the United States! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         1836 1ed Oceania Rienzi Voyages Australia James Cook Illustrated MAPS Polynesia

First edition. - 1836 1ed Oceania Rienzi Voyages Australia James Cook Illustrated MAPS Polynesia Louis Domeny de Rienzi was a 19th-century was a French explorer and traveler. He is most-known for his journals and writings about his excursions, particularly his Polynesian exploration. This voyage was recorded in his work entitled ‘Oceania, the Fifth Part of the World.’ In this work, which includes hundreds of illustrations and maps, da Rienzi writes not only of his experiences but that of James Cook and Louis-Antoine Bougainville and their voyages to the Pacific Islands. In this work, da Rienzi discusses his engagement with natives of Australians and proposed them to be called ‘pithomorphic’ or ‘men with monkey forms.’ Illustrations includes panoramic landscapes, views of festivals and ceremonies, native costumes, and monuments. According to Numa Broc on this first edition, “This compilation is quite successful. The book, like those in the ‘L’Univers’ collection makes more room for history than for geography. If the exotic flora and fauna are not neglected, the author is particularly interested in the habits of the natives.” This book has been used a reference for decades and has seen reissues in many languages through the late 19th-century.

         AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED] [FRANCE] [TALLEYRAND] Autograph letter by Talleyrand, signed at the bottom and dated March 20th, 1836

      - One single-sided leaf, about 6" x 7 1/3" (16 cm x 19"), with an eleven-line autograph letter from Talleyrand to a Mr. Dupertuis (his "intendant," or steward / assistant). The letter reads, in French (please excuse our amateur transcription): " Paris, le 20 Mars 1836 / Faites-moi le plaisir, mon cher Dupertuis,/de prendre, aupres des personnes qui pourront vous les/donner, du [renseignement?] sur une terre qui est/a vendre dans les environs de Valencay. Cette terre/ s'appelle Chateau-Robert, Commune de Vandoeuvre,/ pres Bazancais. Vous vous informeriez du prix/auquel on veut la vendre, la [?] du propriete,/ Bois, etc., et vous voudriez bien m'envoyer le plus tot/possible [ce rnseignement?]./Je vous renouvelle, mon cher Dupertuis, l'assurance de mon sincere attachement. Le pce. de Talleyrand." A very slight difference in penmanship suggests that Talleyrand may have dictated the message to an assistant, then signed his name at the end, though it's possible that he wrote it himself. English translation: "Paris, March 20, 1836. Do me the pleasure, my dear Dupertuis, to get, from persons who can/give it to you, some information concerning an estate which is for sale in the neighborhood of Valencay. This estate is called Chateau Robert, Comune de Vandoeuvre, near Bazancais. You will ascertain the price at which they want to sell it, the area of the estates, woods, etc., and you will have the kindness to send me the information as quickly as possible. I renew to you, my der Depertuis, the assurance of my sincere attachment. Le pce. de Talleyrand." In fine condition, with old, faint folds, barely visible today. (Includes a separate leaf with typed English translation). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

His most notable work was his Writings of George Washington. An attractive set. George Washington served as the first President of the United States from 1789 to 1797 and was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. Washington served as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War against the British Crown and presided over the 1787 convention that drafted the United States Constitution. An international icon for liberation and nationalism, Washington left a legacy of documentary records throughout his lifetime. Historian Jared Sparks was the first to collect and publish these writings in the 1830's first with Life and Writings of George Washington (1834-1837), and later with The Writings of George Washington Being His Correspondence, Addresses, Messages, and Other Papers, Official and Private beginning in 1931.

         Redman Family Correspondence, 1862 - 1888.

      About 75 letters, some with mailing envelopes; over 200 pages of manuscript. Benjamin R. Redman, 1836 - 1905, was a well-known master mariner of Islesboro, Maine. He is mentioned in Wasson's "Sailing Days on the Penobscot" and is noted for having made one of the fastest Atlantic crossings, under sail, on record. Also, his ship "William C. Clark" was captured and burned by the Confederate privateer "Florida" in 1863. This is a collection of correspondence involving the Redman and Coombs families, and consisting mostly of letters to Captain Redman from his wife Ethalinda (until her death in 1878) and letters to and from relatives, business associates, and his children Walter and Elnora. Theirs was a shipping family, and the content involves shipping news and well as family news and local gossip, some of which is pretty juicy - "Wm. McGilvery of Searsport was found dead in his attic with an Overcoat over his head and a pistol in his nose and his life was insured for $40,000 and his folks try to make it appear that it was an accident..." A poignant theme in the earlier letters is Redman's prolonged absences from home, and his wife's wishes that he spend more time with his family. Most originate in Islesboro, and surrounding communities (though there is a group from Florida and other places where Redman lived and worked in the 1880s), and are sent to such diverse locations as Philadelphia, Havana, New Orleans, and Ireland. Also included is an inventory of Redman's possessions in 1879, following the death of his first wife, billheads, river steamboat tickets, and articles of association for Redman's group planning to sell real estate in southern California. Interesting primary source material.

Les séductions des Nymphes le tentent en vain': the dejected Zéphyr wipes a tear away with his finger, a burlesque of Taglioni's aging co-star Albert's physiognomy, wig and costume The so-called 'Anacreontic' ballet Flore et Zéphyr is the principal work of the choreographer Charles-Louis Didelot (1767-1837) and seems to have been one of the first ballets in which dancers performed en pointe. 2 Written originally as one act of seven scenes, it was first staged in 1796 in London with Marie Rose Paul as Flore and Didelot himself as Zéphyr. 3 The ballet was revived by Didelot in the Paris Opéra on 12 December 1815, as a two-act production (new music by Frédéric-Marc-Antoine Venua and added airs by Pierre-Louis Hus-Desforges and François-Charlemagne Lefebure), and remained in the reper­toire of the Opéra until 8 March 1826, with 164 performances given to that date. 4 After a short rest, Flore et Zéphyr was revived in June 1830 in the King's Theatre in the Haymarket, London (five performances), with Marie Taglioni as Flore and Antoine-Louis Coulon as Zéphyr. Two performances featuring Taglioni and the veteran Albert were then given in London during April 1831 and four perform­ances during April-May 1833; it is supposed that Thackeray attended one of the latter. 5 On 4 May 1833, a satirical review of the ballet appeared in the National Standard, the first number of that journal published under Thackeray's editorship. 6 His caricatures were published in the spring of 1836 without text apart from the title printed on the wrapper (transcribed above) and captions printed on the mounts. The caricatures document a production in long Romantic ballet skirts and emphasise the illusion of flying obtained by elaborate stage machinery (counter-weighted wires and corsets). The first six of the eight plates depict the ballet: The Dance making its offerings at the altar of Harmony ('La Danse fait ses offrandes sur l'autel de l'Harmonie'); The innocent games of Zéphyr and Flore ('Jeux Innocents de Zéphyr et Flore'); Flore laments Zéphyr's absence ('Flore déplore l'absence de Zéphyr'); In a pas-seul, Zéphyr expresses his extreme despair ('Dans un pas-seul il exprime son extrême désespoir'); Sad and dejected, Zéphyr is unmoved by the charms of the nymphs ('Triste et abattu. Les séductions des Nymphes le tentent en vain'); The reconciliation of Flore and Zéphyr ('Réconciliation de Flore et Zéphyr'). The last two prints are of scenes after the curtain has fallen: Flore's retreat ('La Retraite de Flore'), showing Taglioni, wrapped in a shawl, receiving the adoration of a vulgar young swell and a stout middle-aged man; and The relaxation of Zéphyr ('Les Délassements de Zéphyr'), depicting the forty-six year old Albert consoling himself with a pint of porter and a pinch of snuff. The prints were issued uncoloured (copy in British Library, shelfmark C 59 h2) and lightly tinted (as here). The collector H.S. Van Duzer asserted that his uncoloured copy represented the 'first issue', a point sustained by the high price ($1900) which Jerome Kern paid for it in the Van Duzer sale (Anderson Galleries, New York, 6 February 1922, lot 93), if not by subsequent bibliographers. (In the Kern sale, in Anderson Galleries, 23 January 1929, the copy was resold for $2900.) Van Duzer reported his copy to be 'as large or larger than any other copy we have exam­ined', its wrapper measuring 14 ¾ × 10 ⅞ inches and plates 13 ½ × 9 ¾ inches. The wrapper of our copy is of equal height, but ¼ inch narrower; the plates of our copy measure 13 ¼ × 9 ¾ inches. In comparison, the plates of the highly regarded coloured copy in the Morris Parrish collection (now Princeton University) are said to measure 13 3/ 16 × 9 9/ 16 inches, and the plates of the Pierpont Morgan Library copy 12 ¾ × 9 ⅛ inches. [img-3197-left-large_default] Fig. 3. Two drawings attributed to Thackeray, which the collector Frederic Robert Halsey (1847-1918) caused to be bound in this copy. Two drawings associated with the prints survive in the Edward FitzGerald scrapbook. 7 Inserted in our copy are two unrelated drawings, both convincingly ascribed to Thackeray. One, a rapid sketch executed in pen and ink (176 × 120 mm sheet), depicts a female figure wearing a coronet, shown in profile, with a crowd of onlookers glimpsed through an open door; it very probably is a theatrical scene. The other drawing, executed in pencil and pen and ink heightened with coloured wash and ink (96 × 89 mm sheet), depicts a man in theatrical costume (broad-brimmed hat and sword). references Richard Hearne Shepherd, The Bibliography of Thackeray (London 1881), no. 3; Charles Plumptree Johnson, Hints to collectors of original editions of the works of William Makepeace Thackeray (London 1885), p.12 no. 11; Henry Sayre Van Duzer, A Thackeray library (New York 1919), no. 69; [Morris L.

         The Writings of George Washington Being His Correspondence, Addresses, Messages, and Other Papers, Official and Private.

      Boston: American Stationers Company. John B. Russell, 1836-1837. The complete writings of George Washington. Large octavo, 12 volumes, uniformly bound in full contemporary calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, rebacked. Frontispiece of Washington to volumes 1-3; engraved by J.W. Paradise from a painting by J.G. Chapman after a painting by C.W. Peale; frontispiece in volumes 2 and three engraved by A.B. Durand, the first from a painting by Gilbert Stuart; frontispiece in volume 12 of Martha Washington engraved by J. Cheney. Editor Jared Sparks was a noted early American historian and President of Harvard College. Sparks worked as editor of the North American Review and a Unitarian pastor in Baltimore. His most notable work was his Writings of George Washington. An attractive set. George Washington served as the first President of the United States from 1789 to 1797 and was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. Washington served as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War against the British Crown and presided over the 1787 convention that drafted the United States Constitution. An international icon for liberation and nationalism, Washington left a legacy of documentary records throughout his lifetime. Historian Jared Sparks was the first to collect and publish these writings in the 1830's first with Life and Writings of George Washington (1834-1837), and later with The Writings of George Washington Being His Correspondence, Addresses, Messages, and Other Papers, Official and Private beginning in 1931.

        La fausse industrie morcelée, repugnante, mensongère, et l'antidote, l'industrie naturelle, combinée, attrayante, véridique.

      Paris, Bossange & l'auteur, 1835-1836. - 2 parts in one vol. (8, pag. A-H), 12, 397-432, 349-396, 13-348, 433-456, (613)-820, 457-612, 821-840 pp. Contemporary marbled half calf, spine gilt, original printed wrappers bround within. First edition. – This rare critique of capitalism, which already discusses the concept of an unconditional basic income, was not included in the author's "Oeuvres complètes". It was to be Fourier's final work: a third part was planned, but was prevented by the death of Fourier in 1837. Fourier is remembered as a pioneer of utopian libertarian socialism and an early advocate for women's rights. - Spine somewhat brittle and scuffed; interior shows light browning due to paper. Del Bo 7. Stammhammer I, 80, 9 (omitting the four leaves at the beginning of vol. 1, paginated [A]-H). Einaudi 1952. Goldsmiths 29298. Not in Kress. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
