        TWELVE PAMPHLETS ABOUT THE WHEELING BRIDGE CONTROVERSY BETWEEN VIRGINIA AND PENNSYLVANIA

      This important case arose from the competition between Pennsylvania and Virginia for domination of the developing trade with western markets. The State of Virginia authorized construction of a bridge from Wheeling across the Ohio River. The State of Pennsylvania claimed that such a bridge would impede free passage of steamboats to Pittsburgh, a major terminus of such trade. Pennsylvania sought to enjoin construction, on the ground that the bridge was "a nuisance and an obstruction to interstate commerce on a navigable river" [II Warren, The Supreme Court in United States History 234]. For years Pennsylvania had engaged in an ambitious program of canal, railroad, and turnpike improvements; the bridge, it was claimed, would diminish the value of these State-sponsored modes of transportation. The Supreme Court commissioned R. Hyde Walworth to determine whether the suspension bridge "is or is not an obstruction to the free navigation of the Ohio river, at the place where such bridge is erected across the same, by vessels propelled by steam or sails, engaged, or which may be engaged, in the commerce or navigation of said river; and, if it is such an obstruction, what change, or alteration, if any, can be made, consistent with the continuance of the bridge across the said river, that will remove the obstruction to the free navigation by such vessels..." Congress also weighed in on the issue, scheduling hearings at which the competing positions were aired passionately and in detail. "Few cases have ever excited greater interest or seemed to affect more extensively the internal commerce of the country than this celebrated controversy." [Id. at 235]. The Supreme Court held that Virginia's enabling Act unconstitutionally conflicted with Congress's power to regulate navigation, and enjoined the construction as a nuisance. Dissenting, Chief Justice Taney argued that Congress's failure to exercise its regulatory power left Virginia free to authorize construction of the bridge which, in any event, Pennsylvania had failed to prove was a public nuisance.

        Uncle Tom's Cabin

      London - Cassell & Company 1852 - The first English authorised edition of Uncle Tom's Cabin, illustrated by George Cruikshank. Having been published a number of times without authorisation in Britain, this is the first official English edition, and is notable both for that and its illustrations. Cruikshank is one of the most significant british illustrators: during his own life he was praised as the modern Hogarth , and books that feature his illustrations are often collectible on his account. He was best known for his caricatures of contemporary English life, and was feared by many members of the establishment for his satirical flair. He is considered today to have been racist in his attitude towards and portrayal of foreigners, particularly African-Americans. His illustrations for the anti-abolitionist 'New Union Club' are particularly striking in this regard. That he provided the illustrations for this work is therefore interesting; it was seen as a clarion call to the abolishment of slavery, and is credited evenwith laying the groundwork for the Americancivil war. The crude racial stereotypes certainly appear to have been at leastameliorated for it. From the library of John Lewis, FSIA. Lewis was a tutor in typography at the Royal College of Art. He was also the founder of the Lion & Unicorn Press. The enterprise aimed to capture the sentiment of Richard Guyatt's inaugural lecture delivered at the Royal Society of Arts in 1950. Condition: In half morocco with gilt detailing and titles to the spine. Externally smart, with some rubbing to the extremities and around the head and tail of the spine. The spine is very slightly faded. Overall a nice patina has been retained. With a personal bookplate to the front pastedown. Internally the blanks are a little foxed, and the frontispiece has slightly offset. Otherwise, however, remarkably clean and bright, and firmly bound. Some slight cockling, however. Overall: VERY GOOD [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Kitab Murshid al-Masihi li ifadat al Tawa’if al Sharqiyya al Catholikiyya.

      Franciscan Press, Jerusalem 1852 - 254 pp., Arabic text within rule borders, typographical ornaments, contemporary hard boards, rubbed cover, copy inside clean and in good condition/ The Franciscan Printing Press (FPP) started publishing in Jerusalem in 1847 as the "Stamperia Francescana", then taking the name of Franciscan Printing Press. The work of the FPP has enabled the invaluable work by the researchers of the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum of Jerusalem, today the Faculty of Biblical Studies and Archaeology of the Antonianum University of Rome, to be circulated in several languages. This book was first printed by St. John’s Printing Press at Shuwayr; it was translated into Arabic by the founder and operator of the Shuwayr Press ‘Abdallah al-Zakhir. Early Palestinian Printing The establishment of printers and their ability to flourish in Palestine and other parts of Syria was accompanied by the growth of the missionary movement, and the involvement of various European churches in the missionary activity of the different Christian denominations. In order to further its teachings among Christians in Palestine and the neighbouring Arab countries, the Franciscan Order agreed to import books from abroad and eventually to establish a printing press in Jerusalem dedicated to serving their missionary goals. The Austrian monk Sebastian Frotechner, through the support of Emperor Joseph I, imported the necessary equipment, machinery and ink-printing letters from Austria and established a printing press in Jerusalem in 1846. The very first material published by this printing press was the book Christian Instruction released in both Arabic and Italian. The printing press published books in Arabic, Turkish, Armenian, Hebrew, Greek, French, and Italian. By 1883 this particular printing press had published, approximately 103 books, some of them series volumes that covered a variety of subject matter. The majority of the books dealt with religious issues pertaining to proselytizing, education, linguistics, and literary subject matter.

        City Men and City Manners. The City; Or, the Physiology of London Business; With Sketches on 'Change, and at the Coffee Houses.

      London, Groombridge & Sons, 1852. Small 8vo. Recent half-calf over marbled boards, spine with raised bands and with gilt-stamped morocco lettering-piece; pp. vii, 172, 16 (advertisements), [8, advertisements]; title-page with browning to margins otherwise a very good copy of a rarity. First edition, based on Evans' 1845 The City, largely rewritten, enlarged and updated. The Welshman David Morier Evans (1819-1874) was one of the early financial journalists of London and worked for several newspapers. 'In addition to his regular work, Evans was connected with several other commercial and financial periodicals, among them the Bankers' Magazine, to which he was one of the principal contributors, The Bullionist, and the Stock Exchange Gazette. He also conducted the literary and statistical departments of the Bankers' Almanac and Diary. He recognized the significant role of 'panics' in nineteenth-century financial history' (DNB). The present work, anonymously published, deals with the stock exchange, a mechanism and it's social inclusivity, which had made it a mysterious entity to large sways of the British public. One of the most graphic and insightful descriptions of the London stock exchange in mid-19th-century Britain, financial practice and malpractice.

        A collection of views of different places, seen during a tour on the Continent, February 1852.

      France and Italy: , 1852. Quarto (252 × 202 mm). Half diced skiver, marbled boards, sketch-book/album, paper patch label mounted on the front board, title as above, all edges gilt. 69 leaves with over 130 mounted engravings, lithographs, plans - one folding - mostly small "post-card" formats, but a few up to 145 × 203 mm, and a double-page panorama of Nîmes, (148 × 308 mm); occasional manuscript notes and a few pencilled sketches - including one amusing "study" by M.B. of "Mr. Tyssen en route from Paestum", seated feet up on the harbour wall, smoking a cigar. A little rubbed, but remains very good. An attractive Grand Tour album, consisting largely of architectural subjects and views in Nîmes, Arles and Rome amongst others, together with "types" and scenes of local life, compiled by the seventeen year-old William Amhurst Daniel-Tyssen, later William Amhurst Tyssen-Amherst, 1st baron Amherst of Hackney, art collector, bibliophile and politician. Educated at Eton College and Christ Church, Oxford, he was still an undergraduate when his father died in 1855, bequeathing him large properties in London and Norfolk. His estates at Didlington Hall, near Brandon, and elsewhere totalled over 9000 acres; he farmed on a large scale and was a noted breeder of Norfolk polled cattle. Tyssen-Amherst served as MP for West Norfolk, 1880–5 and for South-West Norfolk 1885–92, he was also High Sheriff of the county in 1866. "Collecting books and antiquities was Tyssen-Amhurst's chief interest, and he gathered a library rich in ecclesiastical history … and editions of the English Bible … Equally strong was his interest in the history of the spread of printing, and historic bookbindings. He bought steadily from the 1860s, often in friendly rivalry with the earl of Carysfort, and had the benefit in the saleroom of the regular agency of Bernard Quaritch. His library included seventeen Caxtons, in its day one of the two or three best collections in private hands …Tyssen-Amherst also took a pioneering interest in Egyptian antiquities by collecting some important papyri, of which two catalogues were issued: by P. E. Newberry on the Egyptian papyri in 1899, and by B. P. Grenfell and A. S. Hunt on the Greek in 1900. Both sections were eventually bought by Pierpont Morgan in 1913" (ODNB). An extremely attractive memento of the connoisseur in embryo.
