         Autograph letter signed, with a fine illustration.

      Oxford, 6. VIII. 1841. - 4to. 2¾ pp. on bifolium. To an unidentified recipient: "I have been favoured by your letter of June 29th, in which you have given me your opinion of your drawing of Blenheim, for which I am very much obliged. As the drawing was then in London, I thought it best to defer replying to your letter till I should have it before me, or till I had made the alterations you mentioned, which I believe I have now completed, and which undoubtedly improve it very much. In the first place I have darkened the large green oak No. 1, on the right, also the lower part of the warm oak No. 2 on the left, the upper part, at present, I am unwilling to alter unless I find that it be your wish that I should do so. The Wych Elm No. 3 was very yellow, but I have now made it somewhat green, such as it might be when the foliage has undergone a partial change only. The small beech trees remain much the same, for some time I was unwilling to do any thing to them, I have however made them a little darker. I have endeavoured to work up the distance and building to the effect you desired; and the ferns in the foreground I have varied both in effect and colour. I should say that I have not done much to the building, and was unwilling for some time to touch it, but after making the other alterations, I ventured also to deepen and warm it a little, and I now think it better. I shall be much obliged if you will inform me if you recollect any other little thing that you desire I should do to it, and I shall be most happy to do my best to work up to your idea of the subject. I must beg to say that I agree entirely with you as to propriety of strengthening the effect according to your suggestion [.]".

         Piano Trio no. 1 - Autograph Musical Manuscript Fragment

      - Fragment of an autograph musical manuscript in the hand of the German composer, violinist and conductor. The manuscript contains a section of 78 bars from the second movement of his Piano Trio no. 1, op. 119 over 4 pp. on 2 leaves. The music begins at 2 measures before the Peters edition's rehearsal letter N and goes to the end of the movement. The composer's corrections and changes are visible in several places, with some variances from the printed edition. Labeled as Spohr's autograph in several other hands in ink and pencil in the margins. Both leaves unfortunately split vertically in two places, with one large section of the second leaf missing and smaller areas of the first leaf missing. Toning; splits, chipping, and tears; but legible and overall in good condition. 15 x 10.75 inches (38.5 x 27.5 cm)."During his early years Spohr wrote little involving piano except lieder [.] he largely ignored the piano until his second wife's pianistic ability (and perhaps the greater technical perfection of the instrument) came to arouse his interest. His pieces for violin and piano contain some attractive music, particularly the programmatic (or, rather, impressionistic) Reisesonate op.96; but the five piano trios (1841-9) are masterpieces of their kind, and extraordinarily individual in their approach to the medium."Highly regarded during his lifetime, the German violinist and composer Louis Spohr composed ten symphonies, ten operas, eighteen violin concerti, four clarinet concerti, four oratorios and various works for small ensemble, chamber music and art songs. Spohr was the inventor of both the violin chinrest and the orchestral rehearsal mark. His output occupies a pivotal position between Classicism and Romanticism, but fell into obscurity following his death, when his music was rarely heard. The late 20th century saw a revival of interest in his oeuvre, especially in Europe.

         Commentaries on the Constitution and Laws of England, incorporated with the Political Text of the late J.L. De Lolme ..

      London, John Richards & Co., 1841 ('Third edition, revised and corrected to the present time'). Octavo, [ii] (title leaf), xviii, 476, civ (appendix and index) pages. Early half tan calf and marbled papered boards with a contrasting leather title-label on the spine; covers a little rubbed and scuffed, with the head of both hinges slightly cracked (but firm); endpapers and adjacent leaves offset (mainly from the leather turn-ins); minimal scattered light foxing; early marginal emphases in pencil and (rarely) in ink, in particular to the later sections relating to the institutions and processes of government; related annotations on several pages; overall an excellent copy. Western's apparent aim was to demonstrate the superiority of the English constitution over all other forms of government. In that context, the parochial provenance of this copy is hard to beat. The ownership signature of 'J.F. Burton, Adelaide 1850' appears at the head of the title page and on the front flyleaf (without the place-name). The latter is also signed in pencil 'J.H. Fisher' (James Hurtle Fisher), around which George Fife Angas has written 'Sept 21 1853. Presented by [JHF] to G.F. Angas'. The full name of George Fife Angas is also written there in pencil in what we recognize as a later secretarial hand, indicating (in our experience) that the book came originally from Angas's library. Sir James Hurtle Fisher (1790-1875) 'was one of the most important pioneers of South Australia': a lawyer, he was appointed first Resident Commissioner of South Australia, and arrived in the colony on the 'Buffalo' with the Governor's party. He eventually became a leader of the South Australian Bar (Australian Dictionary of Biography). Angas needs no introduction. We know little about Burton, other than that he was an Adelaide solicitor; he is mentioned as such occasionally in the local newspapers of the day.

         Argument Of John Quincy Adams, Before The Supreme Court Of The United States, In The Case Of The United States, Appellants, vs. Cinque, And Others, Africans, Captured In The Schooner Amistad, By Lieut. Gedney Delivered On The 24th Of February And 1st Of March, 1841.

      S. W. Benedict,, New York: 1841 - Very good+, unbound (although with stab sewn signatures) with an integral title page. An octavo of 8 5/8 by 5 5/8 inches with the title page showing very light foxing and the adhesion of a square inch of foreign paper near the spine edge. The rear 17 pages show a very faint dampness stain and pages 73/74 have a minor narrow loss on line 16 of approximately 3/4 inch in length. 135 pages followed by a blank page. The full title reads: "Argument Of John Quincy Adams, Before The Supreme Court Of The United States, In The Case Of The United States, Appellants, vs. Cinque, And Others, Africans, Captured In The Schooner Amistad, By Lieut. Gedney Delivered On The 24th Of February And 1st Of March, 1841. With A Review Of The Case Of The Antelope, Reported In The 10th, 11th and 12th Volumes of Wheaton's Reports". Twelve years after his four year term as President of the United States ended, abolitionists in the northern states asked John Quincy Adams to plead for the freedom of the 53 native Africans who had been kidnapped and taken as slaves in a Spanish ship called the Amistad. This was one of the most famous cases argued before the Supreme Court. The Court's 7 to 1 decision to free the Africans and allow them to return home to Africa was a landmark in American history and a major shot in the arm for the then burgeoning abolitionist movement. Justice Joseph Story, who wrote the majority opinion, later called Adams' speech to the Court as "extraordinary, for its power, for its bitter sarcasm, and its dealing with topics far beyond the record and points of discussion" (DAB vol. 1p.90) A very brief version of Adam's speech before the Court appeared in the 1997 movie Amistad wherein Anthony Hopkins played the role of John Quincy Adams.

         Les Débardeurs.

      Paris: Baugher & Co. [1841] - 66 numbered lithograph plates; some foxing. Orig. royal blue embossed paper boards, dark blue calf spine, elaborately dec. in gilt; rubbed at extremities with sm. chip to foot of spine. A complete collection of the series by the French caricaturist, second only to Daumier as the greatest social commentator and satirical artist of nineteenth century France. A draughtsman in his early career, and later a costume designer, Gavarni rose to prominence publishing his work in the Le Charivari, Le Figaro and L'Illustration. He also illustrated Balzac's novels, and Eugene Sue's Wandering Jew. Gavarni?s 'débardeurs' - meaning literally, those who unload goods from ships - are characters wearing fancy dress, especially women wearing trousers, something that was, at the time, acceptible only during the carnival. 'He could, through the accuracy of faces, the careful rendering of clothes, the precision of poses and bearing, unmistakenly express the age, quality, occupation, habits, manners and ridiculous ways of the characters he depicted. He made them speak a language stunning with original exactness, feeling and novelty' (Henri Beraldi). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

But there are people of so refined and delicate a nature, that they cannot bear the contemplation of these horrors. . I have no desire to make proselytes among such people. I have no respect for their opinion . do not covet their approval; and do not write for their amusement. I venture to say this without reserve; for I am not aware of any writer in our language having a respect for himself, or held in any respect by his posterity, who ever has descended to the taste of this fastidious class.?

         [GLOBE]. The earth

      Published by J. G. Klinger in Nuremberg. Constructed, delineated and etched by J. A. Buhler. Nuremberg : J[ohann]. G[eorg]. Klinger, [between 1841 - 1852]. Wooden and plaster globe (6 inches in diameter), covered with 12 glazed and hand-coloured gores, fitted and spinning with metal polar axis in a circular card box, the lid provided in expert facsimile, the globe a little rubbed and with a few cracks but sound. A rare large format cased miniature globe, with the continents marked out in different colours together with all the main topographical and geographical features. Mount Erebus and Mount Terror are both marked on the Antarctic continent, as discovered on January 27, 1841 by polar explorer Sir James Clark Ross, who named them after his ships, Erebus and Terror. The globe was published by the Nuremberg cartographic firm founded by the engraver Johann Georg Klinger (1764-1806). The company continued until the early 1920s under various names, including Klinger Kunsthandlung, Klinger & Bauer, and after 1852 as C. Abel-Klinger Kunsthandlung, upon the firm's acquisition by Carl Abel. This English language example was one of a number of editions published by Klinger for use in schools.

         Log of the ships ?Earl of Balcarras? and ?Helen? during the First Opium War

      1841 - Manuscript in ink. 8vo. Original half-sheep over paper covered boards, occasional toning and slight foxing on the endpapers, with some wear and bumping to the covers and spine, very good. 128pp. At sea, 1840 - An excellent journal documenting life at sea during the First Opium War, 1839-42. Alexander Bayne initially served as the chief officer on the Earl of Balcarras, where he sailed from London to Canton, via Bombay, Singapore, Hong Kong and Manila. In July 1842, he was given command of the ship Helen and continued to operate in the Chinca His journal spans the voyage, departing London on September 25 1840, through to January 1843. As the first Opium War was fought over trade (among other things), Bayne provides a valuable first-hand account of tensions between the English and Chinese and how they manifest at sea. Specifically, Baynes writes from Whampoa: ?.moored ship at the new anchorage close by the 1st bar large ships not being able to pass over on account of the Chinese having sunk Junks with stones in them in order to block the passage up so as to make themselves secure from the infuriated Barbarians as they are graciously pleased to call us . during our stay here we remain in constant dread of the Chinese fearing that they might break their good faith with us but no such thing . however they had plenty of troops stationed round us to see that we did the same.? There are other notable events recorded here, the most dramatic of which being a typhoon in Hong Kong: ? one of the severest typhoons ever felt in China, the whole fleet of ships driving about in all directions, some without masts which had been cut away & others flying to the shore as if they were tired of the tempest & there lodging . on the rocks . next morning the sight was horrible dead bodies floating about in all directions & several noble ships on shore . had the typhoon lasted 20 minutes more we would have all been on shore.? Bayne also records meeting other ships, general maintenance and events on board, and the manuscript ends with nine pages of tables listing dates, latitude and longitude co-ordinates etc. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Argument Of John Quincy Adams, Before The Supreme Court Of The United States, In The Case Of The United States, Appellants, vs. Cinque, And Others, Africans, Captured In The Schooner Amistad, By Lieut. Gedney Delivered On The 24th Of February And 1st Of March, 1841.

      New York: S. W. Benedict, 1841. Very good+, unbound (although with stab sewn signatures) with an integral title page. An octavo of 8 5/8 by 5 5/8 inches with the title page showing very light foxing and the adhesion of a square inch of foreign paper near the spine edge. The rear 17 pages show a very faint dampness stain and pages 73/74 have a minor narrow loss on line 16 of approximately 3/4 inch in length. 135 pages followed by a blank page. The full title reads: "Argument Of John Quincy Adams, Before The Supreme Court Of The United States, In The Case Of The United States, Appellants, vs. Cinque, And Others, Africans, Captured In The Schooner Amistad, By Lieut. Gedney Delivered On The 24th Of February And 1st Of March, 1841. With A Review Of The Case Of The Antelope, Reported In The 10th, 11th and 12th Volumes of Wheaton's Reports". Twelve years after his four year term as President of the United States ended, abolitionists in the northern states asked John Quincy Adams to plead for the freedom of the 53 native Africans who had been kidnapped and taken as slaves in a Spanish ship called the Amistad. This was one of the most famous cases argued before the Supreme Court. The Court's 7 to 1 decision to free the Africans and allow them to return home to Africa was a landmark in American history and a major shot in the arm for the then burgeoning abolitionist movement. Justice Joseph Story, who wrote the majority opinion, later called Adams' speech to the Court as "extraordinary, for its power, for its bitter sarcasm, and its dealing with topics far beyond the record and points of discussion" (DAB vol. 1p.90) A very brief version of Adam's speech before the Court appeared in the 1997 movie Amistad wherein Anthony Hopkins played the role of John Quincy Adams. (Sabin, 274) Now protected within a recently created, cloth covered chemise and slip case.

Lovreglio played the violin at La Scala under Toscanini from 1917-1919, at which time he emigrated to France, teaching at the Collège Parc Impérial in Nice from 1940-1945; among his students was the Armenian composer Levon Arami Astvatsatrian (born 1922). He wrote two operas, three ballets, stage music, two masses, and symphonic and chamber music. The present work is not included in Lovreglio's works list in Wikipedia.

         Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions.

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1841. 3 volumes, octavo. Original brown cloth, relined and rebacked preserving the original spines lettered in gilt and ruled in blind, boards elaborately decorated in blind, yellow endpapers, edges uncut. With an additional leaf of publisher's advertisements to the front of volume 2. Frontispieces with tissue guards to each volume and 2 engraved portrait plates to volume 3. Illustrated bookplates to front pastedowns, removal of library labels from spines apparent, reference numbers to title pages in pencil, ownership inscription to front free endpaper of volume 2, and a few marginal annotations to the same, including the date 27 July 1842 to the final page. Boards faded and a little marked with a few knocks, front hinge of volume 2 reinforced, contents tanned with some nicks to fore edges, plates and guards foxed as often, minor worm damage to the rear free endpaper of volume 3, otherwise a very good set. First edition. Mackay's important early work of social psychology discusses popular delusions of all types and considers the credulous enthusiasm of mankind for phenomena such as alchemy, witchcraft, relics, the Crusades, urban myths, as well as economic events such as the tulip bubble, the Mississippi Bubble, and the South Sea Bubble. Still in print, Mackay's book has had a profound influence on economics and sociology, with many modern economists referring to his work when analysing the stock market bubbles of our own age. "Charles Mackay's passionate erudition and urbane, unaffected prose style contributed to make him one of the chief figures in the establishment of Victorian journalism as a dignified profession" (ODNB).

         Qu'est-ce que la propriété?

      Paris: Librairie de Prévot,, 1841. Ou recherches sur le principe du droit et du gouvernement. Premier mémoire. Duodecimo (182 x 112 mm). Original buff wrappers printed in black, edges uncut. Later ownership stamp of "Alf. Mathey" to front wrappers. Wrappers professionally restored, contents bright with occasional light foxing, still a very good copy. Second edition of the French anarchist philosopher's notorious thesis which caused a scandal by equating all property with theft. In the wake of the social turmoil caused by the economic decline in France in 1839–40 and the July Monarchy's lapse into a "religion of property", Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (1809–1865) argued that—unlike freedom and equality—the right to property was not a natural right. Yet he also opposed collective ownership, "as he was persuaded that only a society without government is able to establish social harmony. The First International was, indeed, destroyed in the great fight between those who supported a libertarian socialism of the kind Proudhon had advocated and those who followed the authoritarian pattern, devised by Karl Marx. Kropotkin and Herzen were all his confessed disciples. Even Tolstoy sought him and borrowed the title and much of the theoretical background of his masterpiece War and Peace from Proudhon's book, La guerre et la paix … One can place Proudhon among the great socialist thinkers of the nineteenth century" (Simons, pp. 301–2). Proudhon himself referred to Qu'est-ce que la propriété? as a "diabolical work which frightens even me" (Correspondance I, p. 296), and he was called to defend himself against insurrection charges at his local court immediately after its publication. Qu'est-ce que la propriété? (1840) was followed in 1841 by his "Lettre à M. Blanqui sur la propriété. Deuxieme mémoire", and "Avertissement aux propriétaires, ou Lettre à M. Considérant sur une défense de la propriété" (often referred to as the "troisième mémoire").

        Ela, the Outcast; or, The Gipsy of Rosemary Dell. A romance of thrilling interest. By the Author of ?Angelina .?.

      Printed & published by E. Lloyd. 1841 - Illus; without the front. plate, some sl. browning. Sl. later half red roan; sl. rubbing at tail of spine. A good copy. In 104 pts with wood-cut illus. Ono did not possess a copy of the early Lloyd edition of this classic blood which was advertised in parts by May 1840, and provided Prest?s trademark pseudonym ?Author of Ela? The early parts carry the gutter imprints of J.K. Edwards, 44 Holywell Street, Strand; printed by J. Graves, 30 Curtain Road, Shoreditch. The preface of this edition is dated March 15th, 1841 and in it Prest states that the weekly sale has been 30,000 copies and that this is the ?eighteenth edition? The edition statement may refer to reprinting of individual parts. (It is clear that the preface in Ono 478, Lloyd?s 1850 edition, was set up from this edition.) The Preface refers to the dramatization by Marianne Denvil performed for ?nearly one hundred successive nights!? at the Pavilion Theatre. Prest has another tale in the press, which is probably ?Gallant Tom? This copy has the booklabel of Arthur E. Waite.
