        A Narrative of a Visit to the Mauritius and South Africa.

      London: Hamilton, Adams and Co.; York: John L. Linney, 1844 - Octavo. Original dark green fine-diaper cloth, blind rules and gilt title to spine, covers decoratively panel-stamped in blind, yellow surface-paper endpapers, top edge untrimmed. Contemporary ownership inscription of one Thomas Robson dated 1844 and bookplate of George Harwood to the front pastedown. Bumped spine-ends and tips skilfully refurbished, inner hinges repaired, frontispiece a little foxed, pale browning along plate-margins, short closed tear to bottom edge of plate facing p. 107 and to stub of lightly spotted folding map. A very good copy. Etched frontispiece with tissue-guard, 15 similar plates, 28 wood-engravings to the text, 2 folding maps. First edition of the author's second book, uniform with his Narrative of a Visit to the Australian Colonies, published the previous year. Backhouse (1794-1869) came from a prominent Quaker family of botanists and horticulturists with roots in Darlington, where his grandfather, also James, made the family fortune by establishing a bank. He sailed for Australia in 1831, performing missionary and humanitarian duties as well as collecting plant and seed samples which he sent back to Hooker in Glasgow, staying until 1838. On the return journey he spent three months in Mauritius en route to Cape Town, and spent the next year and a half "visiting almost every inhabited town and district, and, while assisting at religious meetings and missions, carefully noting every point of interest in the country and its inhabitants. There is a good description of Kaffraria, and of the Basuto, Griqua, and Bechuana countries, and the account of the Cape Colony affords valuable information concerning the first part of the nineteenth century" (Mendelssohn). Backhouse also displays his "good knowledge of botany, and throughout the volume there are ample description of the flora of the country" (ibid.); Hooker himself "recognized the value of Backhouse's botanical observations, naming a myrtaceous shrub Backhousia in 1845" (ODNB). The ownership inscription in this copy, belonging to one Thomas Robson, dated 1844, contains a conceivable family association: the Robsons were another family of wealthy Darlington Quakers which frequently intermarried with the Backhouses; Backhouse's uncle by marriage, noted botanist Edward Robson (1763-1813), was a "major influence" on his studies, and Backhouse's son (another James) married one Mary Robson.

        History of the Indian Tribes of North America, with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs. Embellished with one hundred and twenty portraits, from the Indian Gallery in the Department of War, at Washington

      Frederick W. Greenough (vol.I) and Daniel Rice & James G. Clark (vols.II & III), Philadelphia 1844 - (20 1/4 x 13 5/8 inches). 120 hand-coloured lithographic plates after Karl Bodmer, Charles Bird King, James Otto Lewis, P.Rhindesbacher and R.M.Sully, drawn on stone by A.Newsam, A. Hoffy, Ralph Trembley, Henry Dacre and others, printed and coloured by J.T. Bowen and others, vol.III with two lithographic maps and one table printed recto of one leaf, 17pp. of lithographic facsimile signatures of the original subscribers (subscriber leaves bound out of order). Contemporary half red morocco and period marbled paper covered boards, spines with raised bands in seven compartments, black morocco lettering pieces in the second and third, the others with a repeat Indian head decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges, expertly recased Lovely set of the first edition of "One of the most costly and important [works] ever published on the American Indians"(Field), "a landmark in American culture" (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life, including some of the greatest American hand-coloured lithographs of the 19th century. After six years as superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee, and Winebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, the Illinois journalist, lawyer, state treasurer and, from 1833, Cincinnati banker who had written extensively about the west. Both authors, not unlike George Catlin whom they tried to enlist in their publishing enterprise, saw their book as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. The text, which was written by Hall based on information supplied by McKenney, takes the form of a series of biographies of leading figures amongst the Indian nations, followed by a general history of the North American Indians. The work is now famous for its colour plate portraits of the chiefs, warriors and squaws of the various tribes, faithful copies of original oils by Charles Bird King painted from life in his studio in Washington (McKenney commissioned him to record the visiting Indian delegates) or worked up by King from the watercolours of the young frontier artist, James Otto Lewis. All but four of the original paintings were destroyed in the disastrous Smithsonian fire of 1865 so their appearance in this work preserves what is probably the best likeness of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the early 19th century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Cornplanter, and Osceola. This was the most elaborate plate book produced in the United States to date, and its publishing history is extremely complex. The title pages give an indication of issue and are relatively simple: volume I, first issue was by Edward C. Biddle and is dated 1836 or more usually 1837, the second issue Frederick W. Greenough with the date 1838, and the third issue is by Daniel Rice & James G. Clark dated 1842. Volume II, first issue is by Frederick W. Greenough and dated 1838 and the second issue by Rice & Clark and dated 1842. Volume III is by Daniel Rice & James G. Clark and dated 1844.

Nasse, Rochleder und Haidlen, Zimmermann, Dulk, C.G Mitscherlich, Guibourt, S. Pappenheim, Reich, J. Minding und C.H. Schultz.Johann Franz SIMON (1807-1843) "was born on the 25 August 1807 as the son of a barber-surgeon in Frankfurt on the Oder. After an apprenticeship as a pharmacist he studied in Berlin obtaining a degree in pharmacy in 1832. From 1835 he studied chemistry, also in Berlin. He received a PhD in 1838 with a dissertation on the chemistry and physiology of mother's milk. When SCHÖNLEIN became Professor of Medicine in Berlin in 1840 Simon received the position as an assistant in the hospital. In 1842 he qualified for inauguration as a Privat-Dozent (reader) in chemistry. He died, however, as soon as the 23rd October 1843 of tuberculosis of the brain before the chemical laboratory, which he wished to set up at the Charité, could be established. SIMON began first of all doing toxicological analyses. In his two volumes ''Handbuch der angewandten medizinischen Chemie" (Handbook of applied medical chemistry) he provided the first comprehensive presentation of clinical chemistry. His book was based on a wealth of observation and analyses. He tried, the first time ever attempted, to produce a systematic presentation of the diagnostically important pathological changes in the blood. The book also contained a detailed review of the methods. SIMON founded the first journal and the first scientific association of the new discipline."

        Les Trois Mousquetaires.

      Paris: Baudry,, 1844. 8 volumes, octavo. Original yellow wrappers, titles to spines and covers in black, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Housed in red quarter morocco solander boxes by the Chelsea Bindery. A little skillful conservation to spines, trivial loss to some ends, front joint of vol. II neatly reattached, faint marginal foxing to contents. A very nice copy of this scarce publication, in bright wrappers. First separate edition, extremely rare in the original wrappers, with just one other copy traced auction in the last 30 years. The author's best-known work and one of his two masterpieces, Les Trois Mousquetaires was originally published earlier the same year as a serial novel in the Parisian newspaper Le Siècle, from 14 March to 1 July 1844. Les Trois Mousquetaires "has become the archetypal adventure story, as well as the best known and the most widely read (and adapted) of all French novels. In the historical context of its production it was also the prototype of the roman-feuilleton (serial novel), which enjoyed phenomenal success in the 1840s... It provided a natural outlet for Alexandre Dumas's talents and energies as he combined elements of the historical romance of Sir Walter Scott with the formulas and themes of the romantic feuilleton" (Murray, p. 118). This "Homeric clash of Titans", as David Coward described it, immediately became a bestseller, and was quickly translated into several languages, with no less than six pirated Belgian editions on the market in the year of publication. As Anthony Burgess noted, Dumas was truly "one of the great myth-makers of his and any age" (Murray, p. 118).

Menus défauts aux reliures, dont des dorures effacées pour le titre du premier volume (surtout pour le mot “trois”). L’intérieur des volumes est globalement plutôt bien conservé; quelques rousseurs au début du deuxième volume, ainsi qu’une discrète trace de mouillure en haut des pages. Ensemble tout à fait correct, satisfaisant. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        WHIG BANNER. No. 1[-20] [caption title].

      Nashville. 1844. - 320pp. Modern quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt leather label. Initial leaf chipped at fore-edge. Several headlines trimmed close, affecting pagination. Tanning, light foxing and dampstaining. Very good. Norvell and Zollicoffer edited the NASHVILLE WHIG, which published this election supplement first biweekly then weekly during the presidential campaign of 1844. The paper urged the election of Whig candidate Henry Clay and the defeat of Democrat (and fellow Tennesean) James K. Polk. It supported the re-establishment of a National Bank, protectionist tariffs, and federal aid for internal improvements, and it denounced supporters of free trade such as John Calhoun and opponents of the bank like Polk. An excellent and scarce source for abundant commentary on local and national politics in 1844. Allen locates one complete run, at the Knoxville Public Library; only several incomplete runs located in OCLC, and not in Lomazow, Mott, or noted by the Library of Congress' Chronicling America. ALLEN 2126.

        ITALY A Poem

      Edward Moxon 1844 - From Wiki "In 1814 Rogers made a tour on the Continent with his sister Sarah. He travelled through Switzerland to Italy, keeping a full diary of events and impressions, and had made his way to Naples when the news of Napoleon's escape from Elba obliged him to hurry home. Seven years later he returned to Italy, paying a visit to Byron and Shelley at Pisa. Out of the earlier of these tours arose his last and longest work, Italy. The first part was published anonymously in 1822; the second, with his name attached, in 1828. It was at first a failure, but Rogers was determined to make it a success. He enlarged and revised the poem, and commissioned illustrations from J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Stothard and Samuel Prout. These were engraved on steel in the sumptuous edition of 1830. The book then proved a great success, and Rogers followed it up with an equally sumptuous edition of his Poems (1834). In 1850, on Wordsworth's death, Rogers was asked to succeed him as poet laureate, but declined the honour on account of his age." This book is in Very Good condition, the pages are clean, unmarked and tight to the spine. The covers are Black tooled and stylized.They are protected in rice paper covers. Printed by Whittingham. 341 pages with four pages of ads about Moxon books [a little foxing]. pp287 thru 333 are "Additional Notes" on his poems, followed by an Index.Illustrated throughout with woodcuts by various artists, many knighted and all from the Royal Academy of Arts. SIGNED on pre title page [Presentation Copy] "To Jane Catherine Baillie from her sincere friend Samuel Rogers Oct 8, 1847" [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        L?Internationale. Documents et Souvenirs (1864-1878). Vier Teilbände in zwei Bänden.

      Frz. - Aus dem Müller-Lehning-Nachlass. - Guillaume (1844-1916) zählt zu den profiliertesten Akteuren der in der Juraföderation versammelten antiautoritären Fraktion innerhalb der Internationalen Arbeiter-Assoziation (IAA). Nach dem Gründungsaufruf der IAA 1864 wurden im Schweizer Jura und der Westschweiz IAA-Sektionen gebildet. Guillaume gründete zusammen mit dem republikanisch gesinnten Constant Meuron 1866 in Le Locle eine dieser Sektionen und war fortan einer der Protagonisten des antiautoritären Flügels innerhalb der IAA, der nach dem Ausschluss auf dem Haager Kongress (1872) in St. Imier die antiautoritäre Internationale bildete. In den Jahren 1868 bis 1870 war Guillaume Herausgeber von ?Le Progrès?, der ersten anarchistischen Zeitung der Schweiz. Aufgrund des politischen Drucks ging Guillaume 1878 (andere Quellen besagen 1877) ins Pariser Exil und betätigte sich vor allem publizistisch mit pädagogischen und geografischen Fragen. Erst 1905 nahm er seine politische Tätigkeit wieder auf, als er in der aufkommenden anarcho-syndikalistischen Bewegung eine Fortführung libertärer Tendenzen registrierte. In diese Phase auch Guillaumes Werk ?L?Internationale. Documents et Souvenirs (1864-1878)?, das als die wichtigste Quelle der Geschichtsschreibung der IAA aus einem anarchistischen Blickwinkel heraus gilt. Teilbände mit OU und Frontispize von Constant Meuron, Michael Bakunin, Carlo Cafiero, Adhémar Schwitzguébel. Vollständig mit allen Illustrationen in Bd. 3 u. 4, die meist fehlen. - Einbände etwas berieben, Titelseite von drittem Teilband mit Einriss, Umschlag vom vierten Teilband mit Eckausriss. Kapitale abgestoßen und stellenweise eingerissen. Insgesamt ordentlicher Zustand.

        Naval logbook and diary]. Memorandum book.

      Mainly Eastern Mediterranean, but including South America, the Caribbean, London and other places, chiefly 1835/1836 to 1838, with a few later entries to 1844. - Small 8vo (100 x 155 mm). English manuscript on paper. 80 pp. (five days to a page, hand-ruled on blank sheets), with 8 pp. of printed matter ("a list of stamps, London bankers, interest tables, and other useful commercial information") bound first. Signed on the flyleaf (dated 1835) and on the title page. Original 1830s green roan. A remarkable naval logbook and diary kept by the young naval surgeon John Burns, documenting the voyages of four Royal Navy vessels, the H.M.S. "Harrier", the "North Star", the "Carysfort" and the "Sappho", to Ottoman ports throughout the Eastern Mediterranean during the final years of the reign of William IV and the early reign of Queen Victoria. Burns's ships frequently called at Constantinople, Pera and Tarabya, but also anchored at Tunis and Algier, as well as Alexandria (on Christmas Day 1840). Several of his brief entries tell of encounters and relations with local governors and dignitaries: "[3 Aug. 1837] Received the Persian Ambassador on board"; [8 Aug. 1837] Received French Ambassador on board"; "[14 April 1838] On board. Turkish frigate and brig arrived with the Pasha of Tunis". When passing the castles on the Dardanelles on 18 Nov. 1837, the ship "fired 19 guns", and upon entering Constantinople on 7 June 1837, the vessel pays its respects to Sultan Mahmud II: "Sailed from Therapia to Constantinople, manned yards and fired a Royal salute on passing the Sultans' Palace [.]". Upon their return to Tarabya a few months later, Burns remarks on the celebration of the Sultan's birthday: "[11 Dec. 1837] Sultans Birthday, lett [?] off rockets in the evening". When news of the Sultan's death reaches the ship less than two years later, Burns notes: "[29 June 1839] Uncertain reports of the death of the Sultan", and "[2 July 1839] Reports confirmed of Sultan Mahmouds death aged 69 reighned [!] 31 years." Burns also provides accounts of several military events, mentioning an "Insurrection at Pera, lying off it" on 10 August 1837, or the Battle of Nezib on 24 June 1839. Burns's training as a surgeon is called upon: "[11 Dec. 1836] Captain came on board, mastered, in the evening corporal of Marines broke both bones of leg immediately above ankle". Not always is Burns able to apply his medical skills with success: "[19 Dec. 1836] man killed by falling from the Mainmast head through lubber hole into the Basin"; "[18 Mar. 1837] Cook died of disease of chest". Yet the diary also gives evidence of many less sensational episodes of everyday life aboard ship, containing remarks about dinner, lesser illnesses, and weather conditions. Other entries cover leisure activities such as walks ashore ("[21 July 1837] On shore of Sultan's Valley, had a Turkish bath"; [5 Dec. 1837] Went to Stamboul Bazaars, Galata, Pera") and visiting such sights as coastal castles or the ruins of Pompeii. Burns's allegiance to the British crown is always evident: "[14 July 1837] Fired 72 minute guns in the afternoon on the news of the death of the King which happ. on the 19th June", "[28 June 1838] Entered Toulon and celebrated the Queen's coronation", and "[15 July 1837] fired a royal salute in honour of the accession of Queen Victoria". - Burns joined the H.M.S. "North Star" on 1 Sep. 1836, sailing from Rio de Janeiro to England. Other voyages took the keeper of this diary further into the western Mediterranean, including the ports of Naples, Malta, and Barcelona. - Later notes and calculations on the final leaves and the insides of the covers; newspaper clippings on the lower paste-down announce the death of Burns's infant son in 1859 as well as the birth of his daughter in 1857 and of another son in 1860. A newspaper clipping announcing Burns's passing on March 10 [1894] is pasted on the flyleaf. Upper cover creased, occasional very minor paper flaws to edges, but in all a charming survival.
