        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.

        Journal Portsmouth to Madras 1835-36.

      At sea: 1835-1836. Journal kept by Captain J.T. Baldwin Madras Artillery during a voyage to India in the year 1835 [&] Original verses written on visiting home after a few years absence; Original verses on visiting Newgate after seven years Transportation; Extracts from the Lady Flora Gazette of Saturday 26th September 1835 etc., autograph manuscript, together 186 pp., 6pp. Contents and Index, small pen and ink sketch of a prisoner in Newgate Gaol, full-page pencil drawing of a building in India (small tears and tipped in with tape), both by J.T. Baldwin, typescript page of Contents inserted; first p. soiled, 20th century ink inscription on front free endpaper, wrappers. 4to, 1835-36. An important rediscovery: this substantial journal, never before published in any form, provides a remarkable insight into life on board an India-bound vessel called the Lady Flora in 1835. It was written by Captain John Timins Baldwin, an officer in the Royal Artillery returning to his post in the subcontinent, and a literate and keen observer: "What scope," he justly observes at one point, "a voyage to India gives one for the study of character, and how impossible for an individual to conceal theirs from a close observer" (65).The journal was written privately for Baldwin's wife Barbara (née Campbell): she was from the influential Edinburgh family of that name, and was remaining in Scotland with their young children, but would later join him in India. In fact, she outlived him by some 45 years, and would no doubt have treasured this relic of his life and thoughts written while still a relatively young man. One of the most significant aspects of the journal is that it dates from an era when the close association between India and New South Wales was really being cemented, in which light it is fascinating to see Baldwin reverting to the subject of transportation. Far and away the most important, and a genuine contribution to the tradition of comic verse relating to transportation and New South Wales, is Baldwin's inclusion of his own unrecorded comic poem 'Original verses on revisiting Newgate after seven years Transportation' (168-171), which imagines the thoughts of a transportee to Van Diemens Land on his return to England. In the poem the narrator finds himself once more in Newgate, awaiting the ship which will take him back to "Botany Bay". It is a conspicuously rare example of a poem in which the narrator is delighted with his good luck at being sent out to Australia, rather than the more common examples in which narrators lament their fate.With an adroit comic turn it concludes:But still what Odds! The big wig's care,Thinking I wanted change of Air,Gave me of Hope once more a ray,And pack'd me off, to Botany Bay.Oh then it was a bitter pill,But since I've found they meant me wellAnd graceless it would seem and rude,Did I not show my gratitude.Then once more free, and left and right,I'll do them all, so blow me tight.The poem is also adorned with a nicely executed ink drawing of the prisoner languishing in prison, which shows that Baldwin was a useful artist. Although Baldwin describes the poem as a parody, it is important to note that it is not simply a random nor unstudied inclusion, because Baldwin had clearly given a deal of thought to the subject of transportation to New South Wales, based on what he had heard and discussed of the conviction of a friend and fellow officer of his in India, on "Dickinson". Given the date and the details provided by Baldwin, it can be shown that this must have been John Dickenson (usually spelt with an "e"), a Captain in the Artillery cashiered in late 1834. Dickenson was initially sent to Tasmania on the Resource (Captain Coombes), but then went on to Sydney on the Siren (Captain Munro), arriving 9 April 1835. Dickenson's life is neatly summarised in his convict indent, where he is noted as being a 40-year-old married man with one son who had been convicted of embezzlement (New South Wales, Convict Indents, 1788-1842). Dickenson had had a long career in India, having been made a "Lieutenant-Fireworker" in the Royal Artillery as early as July 1813, full Lieutenant in 1818, and Captain in 1824, long before his eventual court-martial. Baldwin's thoughts on the fate of his friend are revealed because of a remarkable coincidence: while all-but becalmed off the Indian coast, the Lady Flora happened to hail a ship called the Mary (Capt.William Ascough), then en route from Sydney to India. Conditions at sea were so benign that two of the ship's passengers were able to come on board the Lady Flora, and, compounding the coincidence, they evidently knew Dickenson and were happy to discuss his life. Baldwin was particularly interested about what he could learn about how his friend could have been expected to be treated as an educated prisoner in New South Wales. Although many convicts from India were transported to Australia, their history is not well studied, and the intimate perspective of one of Dickenson's closer friends is therefore an important insight. A long section at the end of the journal transcribes a number of pieces of occasional verse, which prove that Baldwin was an accomplished amateur versifier - and, more than that, gives a window into the sort of pieces with which the educated traveller whiled away a long voyage.Throughout, Baldwin's journal has all the hallmarks of one of the better works of its kind. For a start, it is a work of genuine substance, the journal itself running to 163 pp. (some 35 or 40,000 words), supplemented by a further 43 pp. of occasional verses relating to his experiences and the voyage. It has the candidness one would expect in a journal written expressly and exclusively for his wife Barbara (21) and "not intended to be published (80). Indeed, not only is it marked by the introspection of a man leaving his much-loved children behind, but it is also suffused with his awareness of the threat of some heavy debts to be met when he arrived (61).[A fuller description is available on request.]. Provenance: Provenance: John Timins Baldwin, and by descent through the family until recently. Throughout the paper is watermarked J. Morbey & Co. 1834, confirming that he must have acquired the paper shortlybefore he sailed. One long passage has been efficiently deleted, apparently by Baldwin himself (20-21).

        Memoirs of Napoleon, His Court and Family

      London: Richard Bentley, 1836. First edition in English. Octavo, 4 volumes, bound in full contemporary calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, illustrated, engravings throughout. In excellent condition with light rubbing and wear. A very nice set. Though he achieved many things in his career, Bourrienne is best known for drafting the Memoirs of Napoleon Bonaparte, having been close enough to the man for most of the Napoleonic Era to offer people an intimate glimpse of the famous French emperor. Napoleon, of course, needs no real introduction. Napoleon was unquestionably the most influential man of the 19th century, leaving an indelible mark on everything from the strategy and tactics of warfare to the Napoleonic Code that drafted laws across the continent. To defeat Napoleon, the Europeans had to form large coalitions, which would lead to entangling alliances that brought about World War I after Europe was rebuilt following Waterloo and the Congress of Vienna. Napoleon's influence on the United States was just as palpable. To finance his endeavors, he struck a deal with President Thomas Jefferson that became the Louisiana Purchase. It was Napoleonic warfare that was used throughout the Civil War, leading to massive casualties because the weaponry of the 1860s was now more advanced than the tactics of 1815. When Napoleon died at St. Helena, he still engendered fear and distaste among the Europeans, but the man and his legacy were admired and even held in awe and high esteem in the United States.

Vol. I: XXI, [2 = table], [1 blank], 25-441, [3 index]; Vol. II: engraved frontispiece, 67 plates, 3 maps (2 folding), (cf. photo #1), 1 engraved sketch of all institutes for the deaf and dumb and their professors. +++ Contemp. half calf, spines richly gilt with raised bands, marbled edges. Vol. II on handmade paper (Büttenpapier). First edition. The first work on the education of the deaf and dumb to attract international attention. It was published as a help for teaching the deaf mutes, with detailed exposition of the system both in the text and on the numerous figures or scenes on the fine plates. Czech regarded thinking as a mental activity being innate in each individual. Articulated speech may make the process easier but is not intrinsically necessary. He therefore thought it both morally and legally a duty to provide education to the deaf and dumb. Czech had been professor of philosophy at the Theresianischen Ritter-Akademie in Vienna and in 1818 was appointed professor at the famous Wiener Taubstummen Institut. This institute had been founded in 1779 by Maria Theresia after the example of the French Institution Nationale des Sourds Muets of the famous Abbe de l'Epee. +++ Covers well preserved, for overall outside condition and details see photo # 2. Vol. I: some foxing on FEPs and index pp., else spotless and bright. Vol. II: faded small stamps on front and end paper. Paper edges foxed.

        Patent of nobility donated by Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria (1793-1875) to Joseph Kretzer von Immertreu for his 37 years galant services to the Empire as soldier and officer.

      Austrian Empire, Vienna, d.d. 17 July 1836. Folio. Full red velvet, with yellow and black ribbons. Good condition, except for a stain on the silk end paper. 38x30 cm. 10 pages. Manuscript, calligraphic text on vellum, with printed decorative margins. With a very large hand painted coloured coat-of-arms. In the end the original signature of Ferdinand I and of Anton Friedrich Grafen Mittrowsky von Mittrowitz and Nemischl. Imperial wax seal with one large crack, in a disc shaped copper case, attached to the document by the gold cord of the binding. All encased in a metal box. This patent of nobility was donated by Ferdinand I of Austria in the early days of his reign (1835-1848). Ferdinand I is widely believed to have been a weak ruler and it is sometimes supposed that he lacked intellectual capacities. He also suffered from ill health. During the revolution of 1848, Ferdinand fled the country and abdicated in favour of his nephew Franz Joseph I. The patent explains at length the reasons why Kretzer recieved his nobility.

        South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register Volume 1, Number 2, Adelaide, Saturday 3 June 1837

      Folio, [6] pages printed in four columns, unbound as issued. The vertical fold of the first leaf is a little holed, just slightly affecting the printed surface on the verso; essentially a very good copy in crisp condition. THE FIRST NEWSPAPER PRINTED IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA, very rare indeed, and considerably more so than the London printing of the first number of 18 June the previous year. G.H. Pitt, in 'The Press in South Australia, 1836-1850' (1946), suggests a print run of about 100 copies, of which no more than a handful can have survived. The contents are of great interest, including proclamations issued by the Governor from December 1836 to May 1837; an account of his arrival and installation; a record of the first land sale, with the names of the buyers and prices; and the inaugural address of the Chief Justice, referring at some length to relations with the Aborigines.

        Narrative of a Residence in Koordistan, and on the Site of Ancient Nineveh; with Journal of a Voyage down the Tigris to Bagdad and an Account of a Visit to Shirauz and Persepolis Edited by his Widow.

      London: James Duncan, 1836 - 2 volumes octavo (219 × 130 mm) Near contemporary russia, tan morocco lettering- and numberiing-pieces, low bands with dotted roll, gilt, compartments attractively gilt with repeated hexafoil and stylised foliate tools, single fillet panel gilt to the boards, board edges milled in blind. Ex-San Francisco Mechanics Institute library, their perforated stamp to the title pages and to three text leaves in total, ink stamp to the top edges, ticket-pockets neatly removed from the rear pastedowns, frotn free endpaper neatly excised, text-blocks and plates a little browned and with the usual mild foxing, externally a little rubbed, corners bumped, tails of the spines with slight marks from the removal of labels, boards with a few other superficial scuffs and stains, but overall very good and presents well. Attractive bookplates of Rudolph J. Taussig, president of the MI, to the front pastedowns. Folding map frontispiece to each, 10 lithographed plates in all, 3 of them folding, one folding plan, all plates and maps are laid down on linen, all plates have tissue-guards. First edition. An important study, which "long remained valuable, as the first nineteenth-century geographical and archaeological account of the region and also as an interesting narrative of travel. It was reissued in 1984 in recognition of its continuing value" (ODNB). A linguistic prodigy, Rich began the study of oriental languages at the age of nine. When he joined the HEIC as a cadet in 1803 he was described by a family acquaintance as "a most extraordinary young man. With little or no assistance he has made himself acquainted with many languages, particularly with the languages of the East. Besides Latin, Greek, and many of the modern languages, he has made himself master of the Hebrew, Chaldee, Persian, Arabic, and is not without some knowledge of the Chinese, which he began to decipher when he was but fourteen." His language skills convinced Charles Wilkins, the librarian to the Company, to persuade the directors to appoint him to a writership in Bombay, and he was attached as secretary to the consul-general in Egypt to "improve his Arabic and Turkish." Rich's ship was burnt, and he spent the next few years travelling the Mediterranean and Near East, including intelligence gathering in the interior of Asia Minor. In 1808 Rich became company resident at Bagdad, "where he remained for six years and during this period became the first European to excavate at the site of ancient Babylon" (Howgego). Ill health forced his return to Constantinople in 1813. "On his return through Asia Minor and Mesopotamia to Baghdad, he resumed his studies and collections, made his second visit to Babylon, and in 1820, being again in bad health, travelled in Kurdistan" (ODNB), the tour which is described in the present work. He died of cholera in Shiraz in 1821. "Parts of his collections were purchased by the trustees of the British Museum, and consisted of about 900 volumes of manuscripts in Arabic, Persian, and Turkish, and a great number in Chaldee and Syriac; a large collection of coins, Greek and oriental; and gems and antiquities dug up at Babylon and Nineveh, including the first cuneiform inscriptions ever brought to Europe" Atabey 1040; Howgego, II, R11; Wilson p.189 [Attributes: First Edition]

        Analyse des neuf livres de la chronique de Sanchuniathon, avec des notes, et précédée d'un avant-propos par G.-F. Grotefend. Traduit de l'allemand par Ph. Lebas.

      Paris, Paulin 1836 - in-8, [4]-248 pp., avec un fac-similé dépliant, demi-veau prune, dos à faux-nerfs orné de filets dorés et de larges fleurons à froid, tranches mouchetées (reliure de l'époque). Dos un peu frotté, rousseurs. Ouvrage qui fournit bien la preuve que les savants, tout comme les autres, sont accessibles aux plus grosses supercheries. Il s'agit en effet de la traduction française de cette célèbre mystification philologique qui a pour unique concepteur l'érudit allemand Friedrich Wagenfeld (1810-1846) : très doué pour les langues, il avait fait ses humanités à l'Université de Göttingen. En 1832-1836, il prétendit se trouver en possession d'un manuscrit récupéré dans un monastère portugais (Santa Maria de Merinhao) et contenant la traduction grecque de l'historien phénicien plus ou moins légendaire Sanchoniathon, donnée par Philon de Byblos (et jusque-là uniquement connue par des citations d'Eusèbe de Césarée et de Pères de l'Eglise). Il commença en 1836 par produire un extrait avant de donner en 1837 la version complète (notre texte). Tout avait été fabriqué pour mythifier les spécialistes (de fait, un orientaliste aussi renommé que Carl Ottfried Müller était tombé dans le panneau). Très vite, notre "inventeur" s'adonna à une vie d'alcoolique et mourut prématurément.

        Memoirs of Napoleon by M. de Bourrienne, his private secretary. To which is added, an Account of the important Events of the Hundred Days, of Napoleon's Surrender to the English, and of his Residence and Death at ST. Helena. With Anecdotes and illustrative Notes from all th most authentic Sources.

      London, Richard Bentley, 1836. 8vo, 4 volumes. Contemporary English Regency dark blue calf, spines with raised bands, decorated and lettered in gilt; highly illustrated with engraved plates; only very light wear to extremities, plates with foxing, as usual, a very good and decorative set; ownership iscriptions, dated 1836 to red endpapers. Substantially enlarged edition. Bourrienne (1769-1834) was a childhood friend of Napoleon, and his private secretary from 1796 until 1802, and his Mémoires were first published in Paris in 1829, followed by a German edition in 1829-1830, an (abridged) English translation in 1830, and a Russian text in 1834-1838. Despite the sensation that their publication caused, the memoirs are not particularly trustworthy, since they were in fact the work of Charles de Villemarest, who composed them with the approval of the poverty-stricken and ill Bourrienne, using his recollections and material culled from a variety of sources, of varying reliability; Tulard quotes the statement of Méneval (who knew Bourrienne well) that the 'author' merely consented to 'couvrir de l'authorité de son nom des mémoires à la composition desquels il n'a coopéré que par des notes confuses, incomplètes, pièces que des hommes de lettres furent chargés de mettre en oeuvre' (p. 57). However, despite the numerous errors and inexactitudes that plague the work, Tulard agrees with Arthur Chuquet's conclusion: 'Peut-on croire aux mémoires de Bourrienne? Non. Mais il faut les lire et en les lisant avec précaution, on y trouvera quelquefois à prendre et à apprendre' (p. 58)
