        The Housekeeper's Oracle; or, Art of Domestic Management: Containing a Complete System of Carving with Accuracy and Elegance; Hints relative to Dinner Parties; the Art of Managing Servants; and the Economist and Epicure's Calendar, shewing the seasons when all kinds of Meat, Fish, Poultry, Game, Vegetables and Fruits first arrive in the market - earliest time forced - when most plentiful - and when best and cheapest. To which is added a Variety of useful and Original Receipts.

      London: Whittaker, Treacher & Co, 1829. The delectable Arcana of Domestic Affairs. First, and only, edition, published posthumously. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Kitchiner, 21 figures to illustrate carving and one illustration of a jelly refiner in text. Pp. iv, 344. 8vo., contemporary calf, rebacked with the original gilt decorated spine laid down, booklabel of the Montefiore family on the front pastedown, a very good, handsome copy. Kitchiner's declared intention is to provide the means "that a young Lady may learn the delectable Arcana of Domestic Affairs...which will enable her to make the Cage of Matrimony as comfortable as the Net of Courtship was charming". The information in the excellent Epicures Calendar has endured with some particularly interesting insights into bread, cheese, bacon, fish, hams &c. Kitchiner (1775?-1827) was something of an eccentric. He was an Etonian who qualified as a doctor in Glasgow and therefore could not practice in England where he lived. He was very wealthy and gave marvellous banquets, of his own devising, at his home in Fitzroy Square. If, however, guests arrived even a few minutes late, they were denied entrance. He introduced the world to his culinary prowess in 'The Cook's Oracle' of 1817, many of the dishes in which he had created and tested himself. 'The Housekeeper's Oracle' was intended to be a companion volume. Unfortunately Kitchiner died before it was published and the cause was taken up by his son who had fallen out with his father but was very keen to cash in on his fame.

        29 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 48 S., 8 bis 4. Nach Studien am Collegio Capizzi in Bronte und an den Priesterseminaren von Monreale und Neapel kam De Luca 1829 nach Rom, wo er von 1833 bis 1836 Privatsekretär des Kardinals Thomas Weld war. Er wurde am 10. Februar 1839 im Alter von 33 Jahren in Rom zum Priester geweiht. Am 24. November 1845 wurde er zum Bischof von Aversa ernannt und zwei Monate später zum Bischof geweiht. Am 22. Dezember 1853 wurde er als Titularerzbischof von Tarsus eingesetzt. Pius IX. bestellte ihn am 24. Dezember 1853 zum Päpstlichen Nuntius in München und am 9. September 1856 wurde er Apostolischer Nuntius am Kaiserhof in Wien. Am 16. März 1863 im Alter von 57 Jahren wurde De Luca zum Kardinalpriester von Santi Quattro Coronati ernannt. Von 1864 bis 1878 war er Präfekt der Indexkongregation. Von 1873 bis 1874 war er Kämmerer des Kardinalskollegiums. 1878 wurde er zum Kardinalbischof von Palestrina und zum Vizekanzler der Heiligen Römischen Kirche ernannt und erhielt den titulus San Lorenzo in Damaso in commendam. Er hat am Ersten Vatikanischen Konzil und am Konklave zur Wahl Leos XIII. teilgenommen. De Luca starb 1883 im Alter von 78 Jahren in Rom (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        Map of the County of Essex

      New York, 1829. unbound. Rawdon Clark & Co.. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand outline color. Image measures 12 1/2 x 15" This map depicts Essex County in the high peaks region of the Adirondacks, divided into 17 towns in full, vivid color. Lake Champlain forms the right border of the region, and Lake Placid, yet unnamed, appears in the upper left. The map denotes major routes, waterways, and topographical details, and icons label villages, flouring mills, factories, forges, saw mills, and churches. This first edition of Burr's county map appeared in his "Atlas of the State of New York" of the same year, which was the second atlas of an individual state ever published. The map is in good condition with light foxing throughout and some ink stains in the lower right margin, not affecting the image. Full original margins. David H. Burr (1803-1875) served as Topographer to the United States Post Office and Geographer to the House of Representatives and was widely known for his accuracy and attention to detail. His "Universal Atlas" was the first to map each of the United States individually. This map is a lovely rendering of a scenic area in New York State.

B. Huet jeune; accompagnée d'un texte descriptif et d'un tableau des ordres, des familles, et de caractères appartenant à chacune d'elles.

      Paris, Blance Ainé, 1829. 4to (30.0 x 22.6 cm). 60 pp., 55 plates. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Spine rich gilt with a floral pattern, and gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Speckled edges.l A rare, illustrated description of the mammals in the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle in Paris. This is the second edition (first: 1808, with only 45 plates). The first, unnumbered plate is a fine and artistically arranged comparative overview of the principal mammalian groups. It is not clear which Huet is meant by "Huet" in the title; it could be either Nicolas le jeune (brother of Jean-Baptiste le jeune), or their father, Jean-Baptiste le vieux, neither of whom we could associate with the Muséum in Paris. A very good copy, some scattered foxing towards the end. Spine rebacked. Otherwise very nice, with wide margins. Nissen ZBI, 2046; Wood (this edition), p. 393.

        The Sorrows of Rosalie. A Tale. With other Poems ?

      John Ebers and Co., London 1829 - First edition of the first published work by successful poet Caroline Norton (1808-1877).Norton had a significant literary pedigree; her mother was the novelist Caroline Henrietta Callender (1779-1851), and her paternal grandparents were the dramatist Richard Brinsley Sheridan and his first wife, the celebrated singer Elizabeth Linley. In 1827 Norton made what would prove to be an unhappy marriage to George Norton M.P., and 'disliking and disliked by his family, threw herself into literary society' (ODNB).The Sorrows of Rosalie was Norton's first published work. Even by the accepted standards of cautionary tales, the eponymous heroine suffers particular hardship. Rosalie is persuaded by her lover to abandon her aged father, but the lover - a villain - deserts her soon after. With illegitimate child in tow she seeks her betrayer in London, but is forced to abandon the search and returns to her father's house, only to find him dead. Maddened by grief and the needs of her starving child, Rosalie is driven to theft, whereupon she is imprisoned and, although she is ultimately acquitted, her child dies in prison. After much despair, she finds refuge in a remote part of the country where she devotes the remainder of her life to quiet contemplation. The work was widely reviewed; the Literary Gazette wrote, 'there is nothing very intricate in the story of the Sorrows of Rosalie' yet 'these slender materials have been worked into a tale of intense and Crabbe-like pathos'. The Morning Post asserted that 'simple, unaffected, and beautiful effusion will be perused and re-perused with still encreasing [sic] pleasure'. The New Monthly Magazine addressed the author's gender: 'The present little work is attributed to the pen of a lady. Were it not for the fair, we should have but little new poetry now-a-days. Mrs. Hemans, Miss Landon, Mrs. Howitt, Miss Browne, and others of the beau sex, have all a woman's constancy for the Muse, and do not desert the worship because it does not happen, just at present, to be the ton'.Identifying the edition of The Sorrows of Rosalie is complicated. The British Library has two editions; the present imprint and one in a different state with alternative pagination, as well as a 'fourth edition', which appeared in the same year as the first. Jackson recognises that the presence of the fourth suggests the presence of second and third states, but these have not been identified. 12mo (174 x 100 mm), pp. xii, [2], 134; edges a little browned but a good copy, untrimmed in contemporary blue paper backed boards, remains of printed paper label to spine; upper joint cracked but holding; book labels of Simon Nowell-Smith and Judith Adams Nowell-Smith.

        A BRIEF VIEW OF THE FORMATION, GOVERNMENT AND DISCIPLINE OF THE "CHURCH OF GOD"

      Harrisburg, PA: Montgomery and Dexter, Printers, 1829. Hardcover. VG, with significant foxing in areas. COvers are quite nice, a solid impression. Hard to imagine a finer copy being found. Extensive but very faint pencil writing on ffep.. Full pebbled leather, 3.5" x 5.5" redleather gilt lettered label on spine. 174 pp. Extremely scarce first printing of this treatise by Winebrenner, who was written about extensively in Richard Kern; John Winebrenner and the Church of God. Gossard writes (in his lengthy essay John Winebrenner: From German Reformed Roots to the Churches of God) "...John Winebrenner was a German Reformed minister who founded a religious movement known as the Church of God.(1) In the 1820s, as pastor of the Salem German Reformed Church in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, he came into conflict with the vestry over his use of New Measures revivalism and other issues. Eventually this dispute led to his dismissal by the vestry and his removal from the rolls of the Synod of the German Reformed Church. He developed new theological views about the Bible, the church, free will, baptism, the Lords Supper, and foot washing that were in opposition to the beliefs of the German Reformed Church. In 1830 his followers officially organized, forming a denomination known as the Churches of God, General Conference. In the 1840s he became an antagonist of John Williamson Nevin, a professor at the German Reformed seminary in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania. Winebrenner's activities, letters, and publications were among the precipitating factors that led Nevin to write The Anxious Bench and "The Sect System," two important early expressions of what became known as the Mercersburg Theology..."

        A New Guy Fawkes Speech.

      1829. London, 1829. 9-3/4" x 7-1/2" "Kind Folks You See, Our Effigy, Designed for Guy Fawkes; Who With Base Mind, Was Once Inclin'd to Give King James Hard Knocks" [Broadside]. Guy Fawkes Day. A New Guy Fawkes Speech. [London]: E. Billing, 186, Bermondsey Street, [c.1840]. 9-3/4" x 7-1/2" broadside. Six-stanza verse text within woodcut typographical border, first four stanzas in two columns, separated by woodcut rules below headline and vignette of a group of people burning Fawkes in effigy. Light toning, otherwise fine. A well-preserved rare item. $650. * A celebratory broadside commemorating Guy Fawkes Day. Also known as Guy Fawkes Night, Bonfire Night or Firework Night, it is an English national holiday commemorating the failed Gunpowder Plot, an attempt by a group of Catholics to assassinate King James I by blowing up the House of Lords during the State Opening of Parliament. The plot was foiled when Fawkes was discovered with a cache of explosives hidden beneath the House of Lords. The date of our broadside is conjectured from a similar broadside by Billing with a contemporary handwritten date of 1829 held by the National Library of Scotland. The verses on that copy end with "God save the King." Ours ends with "God save the Queen," so we assume it was printed in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign, which began in 1837. OCLC locates no copies.

      viii, 332 (i.e. 132) pp. 8vo, attractive antique half-calf & marbled boards, flat spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: J.S. Merlin, 1829. The very uncommon sale catalogue of Renouard's great collection of more than 200 Elzeviers, formed over a fifty year period. To this collection, Renouard has added about another 11100 titles (1397 lots in total) from his personal collection. In his preface, Renouard stresses that his Elzeviers were in the finest possible condition with many being in original state ("virginal") with uncut edges. Renouard (1765-1853), originally a manufacturer and involved in late revolutionary politics, became a collector, publisher, and bookseller. He achieved bibliographic immortality through his bibliographies of the Aldine and Estienne presses, indispensable to the present day. Renouard was one of the two or three most important French booksellers in the first half of the 19th century. Fine copy.

        A New Guy Fawkes Speech

      1829. London, 1829. 9-3/4" x 7-1/2". London, 1829. 9-3/4" x 7-1/2" "Kind Folks You See, Our Effigy, Designed for Guy Fawkes; Who With Base Mind, Was Once Inclin'd to Give King James Hard Knocks" [Broadside]. Guy Fawkes Day. A New Guy Fawkes Speech. [London]: E. Billing, 186, Bermondsey Street, [c.1840]. 9-3/4" x 7-1/2" broadside. Six-stanza verse text within woodcut typographical border, first four stanzas in two columns, separated by woodcut rules below headline and vignette of a group of people burning Fawkes in effigy. Light toning, otherwise fine. A well-preserved rare item. $650. * A celebratory broadside commemorating Guy Fawkes Day. Also known as Guy Fawkes Night, Bonfire Night or Firework Night, it is an English national holiday commemorating the failed Gunpowder Plot, an attempt by a group of Catholics to assassinate King James I by blowing up the House of Lords during the State Opening of Parliament. The plot was foiled when Fawkes was discovered with a cache of explosives hidden beneath the House of Lords. The date of our broadside is conjectured from a similar broadside by Billing with a contemporary handwritten date of 1829 held by the National Library of Scotland. The verses on that copy end with "God save the King." Ours ends with "God save the Queen," so we assume it was printed in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign, which began in 1837.

Halbleder. - Brockhaus, (1772 - 1823), als Sohn des Kaufmanns und Ratsherrn Johann Heinrich in Düsseldorf zum Kaufmann ausgebildet. Ein kurzer Studienaufenthalt in Leipzig 1793/94 legte den Grundstein für seine umfassende Allgemeinbildung. 1796 gründete B. in Dortmund mit zwei Kompagnons eine eigene Großhandelsfirma für englische Manufakturwaren. Nach einem Zerwürfnis mit seinen Partnern entschloß er sich, nach Holland zu gehen, in das Hauptabsatzgebiet seines Unternehmens; zunächst in Arnheim, ließ er sich 1802 in Amsterdam nieder und machte sich selbständig. Wegen der Auswirkungen, die die Kontinentalsperre auf das Geschäft hatte, wechselte B. 1805 zum Buchhandel und gründete in Amsterdam die Buchhandlung Rohloff & Comp. (seit 1807 Kunst- und Industrie-Comptoir). Seit 1814 trägt der Verlag den Namen F. A. Brockhaus. Auf der Leipziger Buchhändlermesse zu Michaelis 1808 kaufte B. die Rechte an einem unvollendeten Konversationslexikon, das 1796 von Renatus Gotthelf Löbel und Christian Wilhelm Franke begonnen worden war. Den Restbestand dieses Werkes lieferte er seit 1809 unter dem neuen Titel Conversations-Lexikon oder kurz gefaßtes Handwörterbuch (6 Bde.) aus; 1809 und 1811 erschienen zwei Ergänzungsbände. B. pendelte zunächst zwischen Amsterdam und Leipzig, siedelte mit dem Verlag 1811 ins ostthüringische Altenburg über und verlegte 1817/18 den Firmensitz schließlich nach Leipzig, wo er eine eigene Druckerei errichtete. 1818 wurde er Leipziger Bürger und baute systematisch seinen Verlag aus. Er pflegte Literatur und Wissenschaft und wurde der erste Verleger Schopenhauers, zunächst von "Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung" (1819), später von dessen Gesamtwerk. Bis zu B.’ Tod zählte der Verlag u.a. Friedrich von Raumer, Henrik Steffens, Friedrich Rückert und Johann Heinrich Voß zu seinen Autoren. . Das Konversationslexikon wurde ein großer Erfolg; die fünfte Auflage erschien 1819/20 in zehn Bänden unter dem Titel Allgemeine Deutsche Real-Encyklopädie für die gebildeten Stände (Conversations-Lexicon). In den knapp 18 Jahren seines Wirkens in Leipzig rückte B. in die erste Reihe der deutschen und international anerkannten Verleger auf. Er kämpfte mit seinen Standesgenossen erfolgreich gegen Nachdruck und Zensur und konnte seinem Sohn Heinrich, der in der Leitung des Unternehmens nachfolgte, ein wohlbestelltes Haus übergeben. Seine entscheidende Leistung lag darin, daß er den Namen Brockhaus zum Synonym für Konversationslexika machte und die deutsche Lexikographie im 19.Jh. zu ihren großen Erfolgen führte. (DBE) - Hier die wohl interessanteste Ausgabe des Lexikons in der Originalfassung, laut Brockhaus zufolge die, die die "aufgeregte politische Stimmung des Jahres 1819 verraten" habe.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, IN FRENCH, FROM CHARLES BOTTA TO HIS TRANSLATOR, BOSTON ATTORNEY GEORGE ALEXANDER OTIS, EFFECTIVELY A LETTER OF INTRODUCTION FOR A FRIEND OF BOTTA'S WHO WILL BE VISITING AMERICA].

      Place St. Sulpice, Paris. April 5, 1829. - [1]p. Old folds, light spotting, pasted down at corners, one short horizontal fold separation. Very good. Accompanied by an engraved portrait of "Carlo Botta." An interesting personal correspondence from Italian historian Charles Botta, written to the translator of his book on the American Revolution, first published in English in Philadelphia as HISTORY OF THE WAR OF THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA in 1820. The recipient of this letter was George Alexander Otis, a Boston attorney and translator of Botta's work from its original Italian. Botta, a physician in the French army as well as an historian, is chiefly remembered for his 1824 history of Italy, and for his account of the American Revolution. Botta's letter acts as a letter of introduction for his friend, Baron Crivelli. Accompanied by an English translation, which reads: "Baron Crivelli plans to visit your lovely country; I believe he will have a moment to visit you in Boston. Please do welcome him as a longtime dear friend of mine who will probably become one of yours. I will feel much obliged if you do all you can for him, proving thus that it is not in vain that it is said that North America is the country of hospitality. I gave several months ago to Mr. [Jared] Sparks two copies of my History of Italy from 1789 to 1814, which he said he would bring to you. One is in Italian, the other one in French. I hope that you have them now in your possession." Botta letters are exceedingly rare in the market, especially with any content related to America. This letter is not only written to Botta's American translator, but mentions Jared Sparks, American historian, educator, and minister. Otis and Sparks likely knew each other as fellow Bostonians, and shared a friend in Botta.

        History of the Afghans: Translated from the Persian of Neamet Ullah

      London: Printed for the Oriental Translation Committee, 1829-36 - 2 parts quarto bound as one. Original green sand-grain cloth, paper label to spine. A little rubbed, spine label chipping and slightly scuffed, but largely legible, front hinge just started and the first quire slightly loose as a consequence, endpapers browned, light toning throughout, a very good copy. First edition. Dorn (1805–1881) was a pioneer in many areas of Iranian studies in Russia. "He was particularly interested in the Pashtuns and published annotated editions and translations of texts on tribal history. Dorn never visited Afghanistan, but he nevertheless established the scientific basis for Afghan studies, particularly the first systematic description of Pashto" (Encyclopaedia Iranica). Ni'mat Allah al-Harawi (fl. 1613–1630), called Nimatullah, was a chronicler and waqia-navis, or court reporter, at the court of the Moghul Emperor Jahangir. He compiled the Makhzan-i-Afghani from materials accumulated by Haibat Khan of Samana, and, while some of the content is somewhat fanciful, the book was a major source for the origins of the Pashtuns, also including the genealogies of the Afghan rulers in Bengal and some events contemporary with its composition. For this translation Dorn used a copy from the library of the Royal Asiatic Society: "it is very carelessly written, by one Fut'h Khan, for his own use, in the year 1131 of the Hejra (a.d. 1718)" (Preface).

        THE FREE ENQUIRER. VOLUME I.

      New York. Oct. 28, 1828 - Oct. 21, 1829. - [4],416pp., printed in three-column format. Comprised of fifty-two weekly numbers, continuously paginated. Quarto. Three-quarter calf and blue paper boards, spine gilt with leather label. Extremities rubbed. Contemporary bookplate on front pastedown. Lightly foxed; minor dampstaining at top edge. Very good. This periodical continues the work begun by the NEW HARMONY GAZETTE, recording the utopian projects and ideas of Robert Dale Owen, and others associated with the New Harmony community in Indiana. After three years of publication in Indiana, the NEW HARMONY GAZETTE was moved to New York and renamed THE FREE ENQUIRER in October 1828, surviving until 1835. In the first issue of this new series, Owen remarks on the move to New York: "If free enquiry be impracticable in New York, it must be so everywhere, while, should it successfully elicit truth here, the same would spread far and wide." This first volume of the renamed publication was co-edited by Owen, feminist Frances ("Fanny") Wright, and Robert L. Jennings. Although the New Harmony community lasted only two years under Owen's leadership, the present volume reflects the continued feverish activity of those involved with the community, with more essays on a wide variety of controversial subjects, including the abolition of slavery, religious freedom, Fanny Wright and Robert Owen on women's rights, agriculture, a new social system, gymnastics, equalization of property, cooperative associations, popular education, and the like. SABIN 25708.
