Brothers Grimm; Cruikshank, George (illustrator)
London: C. Baldwyn; James Robins [...] and Joseph Robins, 1826. Fine.. First edition in English, first issue, of Grimm's fairy tales, the version that transformed the collection of folk stories into fantasy stories for children, with magnificent plates by Cruikshank. The tales we now call Grimm were collected in the early 19th century by two brothers on a mission to preserve the folklore of oral storytelling traditions across the German countryside. Rural and vernacular, and quite more complex and dark than the Disney adaptations, these tales are "older, simpler, and deeper than the individual imagination," says A.S. Byatt. First published in German as a "scholarly collection" (Quayle), this first edition in English represents a turning point in the popular reception of the Grimms' work. According to Jack Zipes, it was Taylor's edition that began the transformation in the public eye of these fables, legends, and magical stories into a group of tales for children, laying the foundation for their legendary international status today.This edition is also justly famous for its illustrations by Cruikshank, often considered his finest work. Critic and art historian John Ruskin remarked, "If you ever happen to meet with the two volumes of 'Grimm's German Stories,' which were illustrated by [Cruikshank] long ago, pounce upon them instantly; the etchings in them are the finest things, next to Rembrandt's, that, as far as I know, have been done since etching was invented." He advises artists that "you cannot look at them too much, nor copy them too often."

[Fore-edge Painting] BYRON, George Gordon, Lord (1788-1824).
Paris: A. and W. Galignani, 1826. Paris:: A. and W. Galignani, 1826., 1826. Small 4to. xliii, [1], 716 pp. Frontispiece portrait, includes the 3-page facsimile of Byron's manuscript letter, tipped into the rear, including its address page (folded, some tears). Original full brown crushed straight grain morocco, gilt-stamped, raised bands, brown leather gilt spine label, all edges gilt. Modern brown cloth slip-case made by Martin Frost [his colophon/label affixed at rear]. Ownership label, in manuscript, of C. K. K. Tynte, Burhill. Nice copy. WITH A FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF AN 1819 BRITISH BOXING SCENE, the match of Randall vs. Martin, at Crawley, England, painted by Martin Frost, signed with his initials [painted in 1999]. INCLUDES THE PERHAPS INFAMOUS "FORGED" MANUSCRIPT LETTER OF LORD BYRON'S WHEREIN HE DENIES AUTHORSHIP TO THE VAMPYRE. The book was published without showing the author's name, anonymously, thus giving rise to the supposition of Byron's responsibility. It was Dr. John Polidori (1795-1821) who wrote The Vampyre, in 1819. The 1826 Galignani edition of Byron's Works is the first to contain this notorious facsimile of Byron's letter. PROVENANCE: Charles Kemeys Kemeys Tynte (1778-1860), Burhill. Charles Kemeys Kemeys Tynte, or, Charles Kemeys Kemeys-Tynte, was an English Whig and Liberal politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1820 to 1837. In 1820, Tynte was elected Member of Parliament for Bridgwater. He held the seat until 1837. See: L. Jeff Weber, Annotated Dictionary of Fore-edge Painting Artist & Binders, pp. 151-153.

Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881)
London, UK: Very good condition. [DISRAELI, BENJAMIN]. Vivian Grey. London: Henry Colburn, 1826 [-1827]. Hardcover. First edition. In five volumes, complete. Octavo, pp. (6), 266; (2), 236; (2), 333; (2), 362; (2), 324. Attractively bound in near contemporary uniform half-calf over marbled boards, smooth spines, gilt rules and lettering, morocco lettering piece in second compartments, red speckled page edges, tinted pastedowns and endpapers, bound without adverts or half-titles. Printed by S. and R. Bentley. Condition: VERY GOOD. Bindings tight and secure, hinges intact, slight mottling to spines, textblock lightly tanned with very occasional fox spots, a few leaves with minor marginal stains, nice armorial bookplate to front pastedowns. Excellent and scarce thus. Listing note: Uncommon first edition set of Disraeli's first novel, a "sensational roman-à-clef in the then fashionable silver-fork style" (ODNB), the first section originally published anonymously in two volumes in April 1826, ostensibly by a so-called "man of fashion," caused a considerable sensation in London society. Contemporary reviewers, suspicious of the numerous solecisms contained within the text, eventually identified the young 21 year old Disraeli (who did not move in high society) as the author. It received disfavourable reviews, despite its public popularity, due to its "combination of unmistakable self-exposure and reckless satire. Moreover, Murray and Lockhart, men of great influence in literary circles, were deeply offended by the sneering treatment of characters based on them" (ibid.).

Bleuler-- Johann Ludwig (Louis)
?Vue de la ville d?Utrecht.? Aquatinta vervaardigd door Sigismond Himely naar een tekening van en uitgegeven in 1826 door, Johann Ludwig (Louis) Bleuler. Bijzonder fraai in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (voorstelling) 19,5 x 30 cm (lijst 45 x 51,5 cm).We zien Utrecht vanaf de Oude Rijn met van links naar rechts de Jacobikerk, Dom en Buurkerk.Bleuler (1792 -1850) wordt gerekend tot de beste Zwitserse landschapschilders van zijn tijd. Hij studeerde in Parijs, maar betrok later kasteel Laufen (CH) naast de Rheinfall, Europas grootste waterval. De Rijn vormde een grote bron van inspiratie, hetgeen resulteerde in een schitterende serie van 80 gezichten op steden en landschappen Der Rhein von den Quellen bis zur M?ndung, waar ook Utrecht, Rotterdam en Leiden onderdeel van uitmaakten.Dit boekwerk was in eerste instantie bedoeld als souvenir voor de (veelal Engelse) elite die zich een toeristische reis langs de Rijn konden veroorloven, maar de keizer van Oostenrijk en Marie Isabelle van Sicili? behoorden tot zijn eerste en belangrijkste afnemers.Prijs: Euro 950,- (incl. lijst)?.

Brockhaus acquit en 1821 le manuscrit et publia de 1822 à 1828 une traduction allemande. Le succès fut tel qu'une édition pirate française, traduction de cette traduction, vit le jour entre 1825 et 1828, chez Tournachon et Molin : elle a le grand mérite ou intérêt d'être la première française, mais elle est réputée très négligée, contenant par exemple des épisodes apocryphes.

CAILLIÉ, René-Auguste.
XVI, 496; [4], 622 [= 582] pp.First Dutch edition of Caillié's travels to Timbuktu. In 1826 the Société de Géographie had offered a reward of 10,000 francs to the first European to visit Timbuktu (and return alive). Caillié, by that time already travelling in Africa, was determined to reach the fabled city. Dressed as a Muslim and well-versed in Arabic, he embarked on his journey in April 1827, reaching Timbuktu on 19 April of the following year. "Caillié was sorely disappointed with what he saw: a dreary, sleepy little town on the edge of the desert ..." (Howgego). Nothing was left of the legendary riches of the city, and the population lived in constant fear of Tuareg attack. Caillié remained in Timbuktu for only two weeks, leaving for Morocco on 4 May. He crossed the Sahara, and after many hardships reached Morocco's Tafilet region on 23 July. By way of Fez, Meknes and Rabat he arrived in Tangier from where he sailed for France.Caillié was preceded Benjamin Rose and by Alexander Gordon Laing in being the first European to enter Timbuktu. Laing, however, was murdered on the way back and Rose's account met with disbelieve. Accordingly, Caillié was rewarded the 10,000 franc prize after his successful return in October 1828. His narrative contains many interesting details on the secluded regions he traversed and the peoples he encountered, without romanticizing his adventures.Fine set.l NCC (6 copies; 1 incomplete); Saalmink, p. 338; cf.

GODARD, Ernest.
[6 incl. portrait], XXXI, [1 blank], 438 pp.First and only edition of a curious collection of medical and anthropological observations, posthumously published from the notes of the French physician and anthropologist Ernest Godard (1826-1862), made during his (fatal) journey through Egypt and Palestine (1861-1862), where he was sent on a scientific mission by Alexandre Colonna-Walewski. Godard specialised in human genitalia as can be seen on the first 6 plates, depicting the remains of a eunuch's genitals (plate I-III), the effects of elephantiasis on male genitals (IV-V) and a comparison between healthy genitals and those with fistula and cysts. Other plates reflects his other interest: teratology, the scientific study of congenital abnormalities and abnormal formations. Besides diseases and deformities, the text also focuses on more curious topics such as harems. The work opens with a preface by Charles Robin followed by a short biography of Godard.Foxing throughout the text volume; the plates with some spots and minor dampstain at the foot and the boards somewhat soiled, otherwise in good condition.l Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 1698bis; Ibrahim-Hilmy I, p. 264; for Godard: Hirsch II, pp. 583-584.

Elle escompte quelques pages qui sont parmi les plus claires et les plus belles de toute la littérature médicale. En outre cette seconde édition de 1826 est encore d'une bien plus grande importance que la première édition de 1819. Le fameus stéthoscope de Laennec, cylindre de bois en forme d'étonnoir, est représenté par fig. 1 à 6 de la première double planche à la fin du premier volume. Garrison-M. states about this landmark work (1st edition 1819) and particularly the even more important second edition: "Auscultation in the instrumental sense dates from Laennec's invention of the stethoscope (at first merely a roll of stiff paper) with a view to amplifying the sound of the heart's action. The publication of this book (a landmark) revolutionalized the study of diseases of the thoracic organs. The second edition, 1826, is even more important, since it gives not the only the various physical signs elicited in the chest, but adds the pathological anatomy, diagnosis, and treatment of each disease encountered. Laennec, perhaps the greatest clinician of his time, died of tuberculosis". "Laennecs invention of the stetoscope was the most important advanc … [Click Below for Full Description]

(AUCTION CATALOGUE: SALLÉ, F., artist & dealer)
1826. 80 pp. 8vo (216 x 135 mm.), early 20th-cent. cloth-backed marbled boards & orig. printed wrappers mounted on stubs, gilt title on spine. Paris: Bonnefons Delavialle, Ch. Paillet; London: Treuttel & Wurtz, Jarman; Amsterdam: Dufour & De la Chaux; Brussels: Danot; Berlin: Logier & Simon Schropp; Vienna: Schabacher, [1826]. A fascinating and rare auction catalogue of an extensive and influential collection of Asian artifacts belonging to a "F. Sallé," with many contemporary pencil annotations in the margins. We have been unable to ascertain his first name, but Sallé appears in numerous early 19th-century Parisian auction catalogues as the commissaire-priseur. This was the greatest collection of Chinese materials after that of the renowned sinophile Henri Léonard Jean Baptiste Bertin (1720-92), powerful ministre d'Etat under Louis XV and XVI. Most of Bertin's collection was dispersed in 1792 without a catalogue; in 1815, a catalogued auction (Lugt 8637) was held to sell off the final portion of the collection. Sallé's is an important catalogue not just for its contents but also its Introduction, which closely details the formation of Sallé's collection through auctions - Potoscka, Titzeng, Tersan, Vata, Madame Maqueron, captain Thierry, etc. - and private sales in France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Russia. The auctioneer notes that Sallé's collection is four times larger than Bertin's was at its peak. A second, lesser sale from his collection occurred the next year (Lugt 11359). This catalogue presents 795 lots, including lacquerware, perfume, boo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Closed tear to rear blanks. Textblock toned as is typical in imprints of this period. Contemporary ownership signature of Quaker activist Elizabeth [Pearsall] Boyd (1767-1842) to header of title and page 5. Collating complete: iv, 5-192. One of the earliest collective biographies centered on Black Americans, Mott's Sketches is quite scarce institutionally and in trade. It has sold only three times at auction, with the present as the only copy on the market. The earliest collective biography centered on Black Americans, compiled by activist Abigail Mott, the sister of Lucretia. Both raised as Quakers, the Mott sisters were committed to the principles of human equality; the pursuit of it defined both of their lives. While the Motts took separate paths in the promotion of women's rights (Lucretia pursuing enfranchisement as Abigail pushed for equal education), they shared a common dedication to the anti-slavery movement that included involvement with the Underground Railroad. For Abigail, the popular genre of collective biography provided an intersection at which to promote her two passions. After all, 19th century America had seen a surge of such books anthologizing members of political and social movements to educate the public about their acco … [Click Below for Full Description]

Physiologie du gout, ou méditations de gastronomie transcendante, ouvrage théorique, historique et à l'ordre du jour, dédié aux gastronomes Parisiens.Paris, Auguste Sautelet et Cie. (back of title-page: printed by David), 1826 [1825]. 2 volumes. 8vo. With a woodcut device on both title-pages. Contemporary half calf, gold-tooled spines, marbled edges and endpapers. [2], XIV, [1], 6-390; 442 pp. Very rare first issue of the first edition of the most influential work on cultured eating ever published; only 500 copies were printed. In this first issue the "e" of printers address is printed horizontally. This is the only edition that was published while the author was still alive. The fame of the book was cause for countless re-issues, editions and translations. The author Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1755-1826) delivers his reflections on the culture of eating and gastronomy in a style that can be described as witty, refined and tasteful. It struck a chord with its contemporary readers and still does today, judging from the proverbs that were coined by Brillat-Savarin and remain in use: "The destiny of nations depends on the manner in which they feed themselves"; "A dessert without cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye" and many others. It is indeed a great French classic.Bookplate of Louis Rey on free endpaper of both volumes. A small repaired tear in the first free endpaper of volume 1. Minor foxing on the last few pages of volume 2. Small piece torn from the foot of page 181 in volume 2. Otherwise in very good, clean and crisp condition.

Adams, John Quincy
[Washington], 1826. Folio broadside, 18" x 24," printed in six columns beneath caption title. Light foxing, old folds and a little wrinkling, untrimmed [some chipping and closed tears at blank margins]. Good+. This is perhaps the earliest printing of Adams's Message to Congress. Adams reports on domestic and foreign affairs, all of which are going quite well. He closes with a eulogy to Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, each of whom had died five months earlier on July 4. The uncanny event shocked the world, and confirmed Americans' belief that their country was singularly blessed by Providence. President J.Q. Adams celebrates the "blessings of Freedom and Independence, which the sires of a former age had handed down to their children ." Jefferson was "the hand that penned the ever-memorable Declaration", and Adams "the voice that sustained it in debate." The broadside is signed in type by Adams and dated, "Washington, December 5, 1826." AI 27313 [1- Huntington]. OCLC 58786413 [2- Huntington, NYHS] as of April 2020. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
