TAYLOR, Thomas (trans.)
London: Printed for the translator, and sold by John Bohn, Henry Bohn and Thomas Rodd,, 1831. A major influence on the Romantic poets Octavo (187 x 111 mm). Contemporary brown morocco, rebacked with original spine laid down, covers elaborately panelled in blind, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Slight loss at spine ends, very light rubbing to morocco, very slight foxing to contents, tiny chipping to extremities of a few pages. A very good copy. First edition of Taylor's translation of these four ancient Greek philosophers. The neoplatonist Thomas Taylor (1758-1835) was a prolific translator of ancient Greek writing, and was the first to translate the complete works of Plato and Aristotle into English. He was such a committed Hellenist that he and his wife are reputed to have conversed only in ancient Greek. Though his translations were criticised at the time, they were a major influence on the Romantic poets and the American transcendentalists, with Ralph Waldo Emerson reading them enthusiastically.

HUGO, Victor
Paris: Charles Gosselin, Libraire, 1831. 1831 1st edition Hunchback of Notre Dame Victor Hugo French Literature Paris"Nothing makes a man so adventurous as an empty pocket." ― Victor Hugo, The Hunchback of Notre DameThe best-known and oft-considered greatest French writer is unarguably Victor Hugo. His romance novels and stories have withstood the test of language and time. One of Hugo's most popular stories is 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame'; a tale of a gypsy who catches the hearts of men including a hunchback named Quasimodo. This work has been transformed into dozens of stage, film, and television adaptations. This extremely rare and valuable 1831 first edition is one of the most difficult pieces of French literature to obtain in first edition form. According to Carteret,"this first edition is the rarest of all the author's works; it had a worldwide impact, and it's one of the most difficult to getfrom the Romantic period."This edition specifies 'cinquieme edition' on the half-title. This is significant in that it was the fifth installment of the 1831 first edition print run which only included 275 copies per print run. Note this is not a fifth edition printing. Even examples with 'quatrieme' or 'troisime' on the title page are found for sale for between $12,000 to $15,000.Item number: #10588Price: $4950HUGO, VictorNotre-Dame de ParisParis: Charles Gosselin, Libraire., 1831.

[Boston, MA]: Boston Chemical Printing Company, 1831. Broadside on muslin. 30 x 29.5 cm. Three hymns, the first with music: "Sabbath School Hymn," including six verses and two lines of music, one for girls and one for boys; "We Never Part from Thee," in four verses; and "The Golden Rule," in eight lines. Circular & square typographical borders, with a printed line of text above three vignettes (one of a schoolmaster and his students): "Sabbath Schools first instituted by Robert Raikes in Gloucester, Eng. A.D. 1782." A few brown spots, but very good. Complex printing and visually appealing. Possibly by Sarah J. Hale, but not listed by BAL. Very similar to THREADS OF HISTORY #78, but unlisted and differing from it by including an extra poem, by not having a vignette below the text, and by listing the printer as 'Boston Chemical,' not 'Henry Bowen's Chemical Print.' OCLC lists three copies with the 'Boston Chemical Printing Company' as publisher: Yale, AAS, Boston Athenaeum.

JANIN Jules.
Paris, Alexandre Mesnier,1831 ; 4 vol. in-12, demi-percaline rouge à la bradel, à coins, pièce brune, entièrement non rognés, couvertures conservées (un peu salies). ÉDITION ORIGINALE D'UNE GRANDE RARETE. Ce roman de jeunesse au style enlevé revient sur des épisodes de la Révolution et dresse un tableau peu flatteur des Orléans, en partie inspiré par la sourde opposition de Janin à la toute récente Monarchie de Juillet. « Néanmoins, si l'on enlève ce que Janin appellera plus tard en 1846 le fatras politique du livre, celui-ci prend un tout autre caractère [et devient] une sorte de méditation romanesque sur les grandes figures de la Révolution » (Bailbé, Revue d'histoire littéraire de la France).

[Women Writers]
Philadelphia: Thomas T. Ash, 1831. First edition. Near Fine. Quarter calf over pictorial boards. All edges gilt. Small bump to lower front corner. Yellow endpapers. xvi, 17-222: complete, including 7 leaves of plates by F. Kearney, J.B. Neagle, and H.W. Steel. Internally a pleasing copy, with only a bit of light scattered foxing and some offsetting from the plates. Featuring several American women poets, including Lydia Sigourney, the present was designed as a gift book to be exchanged by women at Christmas and New Year's.The design and content of The Pearl speaks to important shifts happening in the Victorian world, as women became a key market for authors and publishers. Mass-circulating magazines in the U.S. -- notably Ladies' Home Journal, McCall's, Delineator, Woman's Home Companion, and Good Housekeeping -- encouraged women to purchase and read material designed to meet their own interests and lives (Peiss). The book trade also began taking women's interests into account. Though the popularity of novels caused concern for some parents, who suspected that their impressionable daughters might be led into unsavory romances or other adventures, the reading and exchange of poetry remained a suitable and elegant outlet for young women. The present work clearly targets this market. Beautifully bound in holiday colors, it contains lovely illustrations of women and little girls. The poetry itself, written by popular American poets like Lydia Sigourney, Anna Maria Wells, and Eliza Leslie, emphasizes women's own experiences: Child Left on the Seashore, The Step-Mother, To a … [Click Below for Full Description]

[iii]-xxiv,368; [iii]-viii,400pp. Lacks half titles. 20th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine richly gilt with raised bands and black and burgundy morocco labels. Small ink stamp at bottom of both titlepages. Light shelf wear. Occasional foxing and tanning. Very good. First edition of one of the two most important sources of information about Oregon in the early period. This work, along with Alexander Ross' ADVENTURES OF THE FIRST SETTLERS ON THE OREGON OR COLUMBIA RIVER (London, 1849), are generally considered to be the prime printed sources of information on the exploration and settlement of Oregon. Cox left Hawaii and arrived in Oregon with the Astoria party in 1812, later working for the North West Company. In 1817 he went overland to Montreal. "Cox's narrative gives an excellent firsthand account of the fur trade and of the Indian tribes in Montana, Idaho, and eastern Washington with whom the fur traders dealt and sometimes fought. While Cox was making this journey the tension between Hudson's Bay and Northwest Companies had become very acute and he gives a good account of their rivalry" - Streeter. WAGNER-CAMP 43:1.

GOULD, John
London For the author -1832, 1831. First edition; large folio (56 x 38 cm); dedication leaf, advertisement leaf, list of subscribers, list of plates, 80 hand-coloured lithographed plates after and by Elizabeth Gould (from sketches by John Gould), printed by C. Hullmande, some minor spotting otherwise very fresh; contemporary green morocco richly gilt, spine gilt lettered, edges a little rubbed, all edges gilt, a fine copy. Gould's first folio illustrated work The sketches of birds of the Himalaya Mountains, were drawn from a valuable collection of bird-skins which he received, mainly from the North-Western Himalayas, in 1830. This work, transferred to stone by Elizabeth Gould, was by far the most accurately illustrated work on foreign ornithology up to this time, and remains to this day a particularly fine series of ornithological plates. The subscribers' list (here present) comprises 298 names, including J.J. Audubon, Baron Cuvier, Sir William Jardine, John Latham, Edward Lear, Captain Frederick Marryatt, Sir Thomas Phillipps, Dr John Richardson, P.J. Selby, William Swainson, and William Yarrell. Gould, a taxidermist by training, had been working for the Zoological Society where he was Curator of Birds and Preserver at the Society's museum in Bruton Street. Whilst working on a collection of birds from the Himalayas, Gould realised that they formed the first collection of any size from the area to reach Europe and that there would be a ready market for a large format work which included accurate descriptive text and plates. He persuaded his friend and mentor, N.A. Vigors, S … [Click Below for Full Description]

In-8, demi-maroquin rouge de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs filetés or richement orné de de cloisons fleuronnées, titre doré, daté en pied, tête dorée, couverture conservée, (6), xvi, 219 p. Edition originale de ce drame historique représenté pour la première fois au théâtre de l’Odéon le 10 janvier 1831, avec un succès considérable. Oeuvre ambitieuse - la seule pièce du XIXe siècle en 6 actes -, réunissant jusqu’à 76 personnages, cette fresque épique retrace la vie de Napoléon, habilement découpée en 23 tableaux jusqu’à la dernière scène: l’agonie et la mort de l’Empereur. Dumas ressentit le besoin de faire précéder son édition d’une justification politique dans laquelle il rappelait aux lecteurs qu'il est le fils d'un général républicain. (Clouzot, p. 50. Munro, p. 17. Reed, p. 38. Vicaire, III, 338). Seulement 5 exemplaires sont recensés par WorldCat dans le monde. La couverture est défraîchie et tachée.

Fry, Elizabeth
London: Hamilton, Adams & Co, 1831. First edition. Near Fine. Original publisher's cloth binding with gilt to front board, measuring 750 x 550mm (miniature). Some bumping to crown of spine and bottom rear corner. Hinges a bit tender but holding. Yellow endpapers. Internally marked with the exception of two marginal notes in an early hand; on Day 91, "My first Sacrament 1838" and on Day 308, "Samuel died -- 1837." Inscribed by the author on the verso of the front endpaper: "Mary Bullied from Eliz. Fry 1835." Scarce institutionally and in trade, this tiny first edition is reported on OCLC by 5 libraries and is the only copy on the market. Social activist and prison reformer Elizabeth Fry was dedicated to the improvement of the physical and intellectual lives of the less fortunate. Upon a visit to Newgate Prison, she was particularly horrified by the conditions under which female prisoners and their children lived; in response, Fry initiated programs to increase nutrition and hygiene at the prison. Not satisfied only caring for the prisoners' bodies, she also founded the first-ever prison school designed to give women greater opportunities after release through occupational training. "She saw prisoners as individual human beings and understood their need for self-respect. Her ideas and practices were to be influential and effective" (ODNB). The present work, Texts, aligns with Fry's personal and religious beliefs as a Quaker: that one's time should be spent improving the world for oneself and others. A pocket-sized almanac of daily readers, the book declares in its Prefa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stendhal, Henri Beyle
A. Levavasseur, Paris, 1831. A Fine copy of Stendhal's masterpiece and one of the major literary works of 19th century France. A lovely copy, entirely untrimmed (pages 181 x 140 mm), with the original wrappers bound in to each volume (including the spine panels). Elegantly bound by Edouard Pagnant of Paris (1852-1916) in green half-morocco over marbled boards, spine with gilt titles and decorated columns, marbled end papers. Internal contents clean and fresh, quite rare and desirable with the original printed wrappers. Upper wrapper and titles with vignettes of Henry Monnier, engraved by Porret. Volume one vignette shows Julien Sorel appearing to Madame de Renal near a confessional; volume two shows Mathilde de La Mole holding the head of Julien Sorel. Stendhal's surprisingly modern bildungsroman about the rise and fall of the romantic Julian Sorel, who attempts to climb the rungs of French society and surpass the expectations of his modest, rural upbringing. The novel is not only an exploration of Julian's own psychological and spiritual struggles but also a satire of the clergy and French society in general. "The Red and The Black, like much of Stendhal's work, was not appreciated in his own day. It was only after Stendhal's death that critics began to realize what a revolutionary stylist he was. He's currently credited as one of the fathers of psychological realism due to the space he devotes to his characters' inner lives. "Stendhal's mind was of the first order. he wrote his two novels, which so few people have read, in a spirit of fearless liberty" (Joseph Conrad). Fi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bemerkenswert ist das Jacob Ferdinand Schreiber (18091867) seine lithographische Ausbildung bei Ebner absolvierte, bevor er 1831 in Esslingen seinen eigenen Verlag gründete und dort seit 1835 seine erfolgreiche Reihe Anschauungs-Bilder für die Jugend herausgab. Interessant ist die Entwicklung der frühen deutschen Anschauungs-Bilderbücher von Johann Michael Voltz: Zwölf Blätter Kinderbilder (1823) über die vorliegende Folge bis zu Schreibers "Bildern zum Anschauungs-Unterricht". - Der Deckeltitel mit handschr.

The extremely rare auction catalogue of the Sothebys' collection of early auction catalogues. Samuel Leigh Sotheby took a strong interest in the firms history and in the history of book collecting in general. In 1828 he published A List of the Original Catalogues of the Principal Libraries which have been sold by Auction. Due to the economic hardship of the time, which hit not only the book trade but all other forms of commerce, the Sothebys', decided to part with the source material used for the compilation of the aforementioned publication. "It was probably the most complete conspectus of the history of all aspects of English collecting then extant, and the Sothebys' made the catalogue a very useful scholars' working tool by adding extensive indexes of the collections of books (408) privately printed catalogues (42), picture and drawings (144), coins and medals (142) and pictures (65). One section of the sale includes 'literary Collections sold by various Auctioneers' and is again of interest as representing Sotheby's major competitors up to 1831."—Heerman.

In the Spring of 1789, Fletcher Christian led the mutiny and eventually settled in Tahiti. John Barrow's 'The Eventful of History of the Mutiny' is an important retelling of the events that led to the mutiny, the seizure, and Bligh's navigation to safety.

PARKE, Miss Frances Margaretta -
[UK & Europe]. 1826, 1831, 1839, 1841,1842, 1845, 1847, 1849, 1850, 1851 and 1853.

John was only to marry a few months before his aunts death in 1854 and so was probably indulged a bit in his collecting passion. The contents are very much of a matter of fact natur … [Click Below for Full Description]
