        Mitchell's Travellers Guide through the United States. A Map of the Roads, Distances, Steam Boats & Canal Routes &c

      Philadelphia.: S. Augustus Mitchell.. 1832.. Map, handcolored engraving, 17 x 21 1/2 on sheet 17 1/2 x 21 3/4 inches, folding as issued into gilt decorative black leather covered boards 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. Cover worn, head of spine chipped, inner hinge split, previous owner's name and date of 1832 plus other pen marking on front pastedown; archivally repaired splits at several map folds, short separations at several fold intersections but overall the map is in very bright, crisp condition. There is no "single separate folded sheet" as described in the David Rumsey record for this map (there is paper residue to the front endpaper and this may have been where the folded sheet was tipped in). This is the first edition of this important map in the settlement of the United States. The map extends west to the Missouri Territory, with Mexico at the lower left corner, where Texas makes its appearance in later issues of the map. There are a total of nine map insets: Vicinity of Cincinnati; Vicinity of Albany; Vicinity of New Orleans; Vicinity of the Falls of Niagara; Vicinity of Boston; Vicinity of New York; Vicinity of Charleston; Vicinity of Baltimore and Washington; Vicinity of Philadelphia. This copy is lacking the printed index which in this edition appeared on a sheet of the same size as the map and was folded into the front cover. Shown are: Turnpike Roads, Principal travelling roads, Common roads, Canals, Rail Roads. A very handsome example of Mitchell's engraved maps, portraying the States on the eve of a rapid transformation. .

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Rom, 13. VIII. 1832.. 2 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt mit Siegelresten und Adresse am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief). Gr.-4to.. An Christian August Heinrich Clodius (1772-1836), Professor der Philosophie in Leipzig: "Theuerster alter Jugendfreund. Ihr letztes Schreiben habe ich durch Hennig aus Florenz erhalten, wo sich derselbe befindet. Es mußte mir besonders erfreulich seyn, da es mir die Hoffnung gewährt, Sie bald in Rom zu sehen, wodurch mir ein höchst sehnlicher Wunsch erfüllt würde. O wie oft erfreue ich mich in dem Gedanken, mit Ihnen in das alte Rom hinausschieben zu können, wie wir dereinst zu dem Gallischen Thor hinausschoben. Lassen Sie Sie [!] sich ja, von dem Besuche zu Ihrem alten Freund, nicht durch die Fabeln abschrecken, die man in dem liberalen Norddeutschland von den Gefahren von der sogenannten heiligen Armee erdichten mag. Es ist hier alles ruhig: Niemand hat auf einer Reise nach Rom Hindernisse zu befürchten, und soweit erstreckt sich wohl mein diplomatisches Ansehen, um Sie hier vor allen möglichen Unannehmlichkeiten zu schützen. Nur möchte ich Sie daran erinnern sich, wegen der in Deutschland noch wüthenden Cholera, mit einem Gesundheitspasse zu versehen. Sollte ich wirklich so glücklich seyn Sie noch einmal wiederzusehen, so dürften wir wohl so manches mit einander abzuhandeln haben. Ich bin noch immer das, was man zur Zeit unseres Beysammenseyns einen Aristokraten nannte, jetzt einen Absolutisten und Jesuiten zu nennen pflegt, ungeachtet ich mich mit denen von dieser Partey eben auch nicht sonderlich vertrage. Ich suche mich in meinen Gedanken möglichst von der Gegenwart zu entfernen: sie hat für mich kein Interesse mehr; und ich kann, in der gegenwärtigen Richtung der Zeit, nur die Auflösung alles dessen sehen, was die menschliche Gesellschaft durch göttliche Bande verknüpft, und dem Leben wahren Gehalt ertheilt. Gern versetze ich mich daher in die Zeiten einer würdigen Vergangenheit, gegen die mir die Gegenwart flach, seicht, und von aller Schönheit des Lebens entfernt, vorkommt. Von alle dem wäre mündlich zwischen uns ein Mehreres zu reden. Grüßen Sie mir herzlich meine alten Freunde, Herrmann, und Heinroth, und empfehlen Sie mich dem Dr. Härtel und seiner Schwester [...]". - Einige Randeinrisse von Siegelöffnung. Der Sohn des Anthropologen Ernst Platner studierte an der Akademie seiner Heimatstadt Leipzig, bevor er sich in Dresden und Wien weiterbildete. Im Jahre 1800 ließ er sich in Rom nieder, wo er den Rest seines Lebens blieb und 1823 zum Konsul des Sächsischen Hofs ernannt wurde. Sein um ein Jahr älterer Freund und Korrespondenzpartner, Sohn des Dichters und Philosophen Christian August Clodius, war schon seit 1795 Dozent in Leipzig und erwarb sich Verdienste als Herausgeber Seumes und Klopstocks.

        Personal ALS by Baudin veteran and later Commander-in-Chief of the French during the Mexican "Pastry War"

      Lyon: 28 July, 1832. Four page letter, single sheet folded to letter-size 258 x 207 mm., torn with small loss at original black wax seal, French postal marks, very good. Candid and personal letter by the junior Baudin. A personal and revealing letter by the Baudin voyage veteran Charles Baudin, written at a time when his family fortunes were at a low ebb.After his return from the Baudin voyage Charles - no relation to Nicolas - was one of the naval officers to become a senior officer during the Napoleonic Wars. A fierce patriot, he counselled Napoleon to risk the naval blockade after Waterloo, and it is therefore not surprising that he was pushed out of the Navy, joining the merchant marine in 1816 and ultimately having great success. After the July Revolution of 1830 he rejoined the Navy, and took part in the Mexican "Pastry War" of 1838, before a long late career in the Navy which saw him promoted Admiral just before his death in 1854.Baudin has an unusual hand, but quite legible (with some patience). The letter is written to a close friend in Valenciennes, and deals predominantly with the recent loss suffered by his mother-in-law and wife, and notes that although the worst was over by April, both are still quite shaken by the death of his father-in-law. Worse, writes Baudin, financial disaster has overcome that part of the family, and its effects will be much felt, in no small part because of problems with gambling debts. Baudin is evidently troubled, and worried that it might touch his own family, and not just because of the sorrow of his wife.It is most unusual to have letters relating to the personal affairs of early voyagers, making this a fascinating glimpse into Baudin's life in the early years of his second naval career.

        A Chancellor in 1832! 7-1/2" x 11" Watercolor on Matted Board

      1832. Watercolor Caricature of Sir Edward Sugden [Sugden, Sir Edward (1781-1875)]. A Chancellor in 1832!. 7-1/2" x 11" watercolor on board, attractively matted. Great Britain, Possibly Ireland, 1835?. Toning, a few minor waterstains, small inkstain near bottom right corner, otherwise fine. * Possibly intended as the basis for a lithograph, this cartoon depicts a drunken Lord Sugden, wig askew and clutching a table for balance. He is addressing the Bench: "My Lord, (hiccup) this Sir Edward Bug--no, damn it, I Mean Sir Edward Sug-hiccup) den-this Bug-Sug-Bug! My Lord, I beg pardon, I'm rather & & &." There is a quote from Shakespeare below the image: "It fitteth not a Noble thus to plead!" Sugden, lawyer, judge and conservative politician, was Solicitor General of Great Britain in 1829-30, Lord Chancellor of Ireland in 1835, then from 1841 to 1846, and Lord Chancellor of Great Britain in 1852. He is wearing barrister's robes in this caricature, which indicates the period in his career between 1831 and 1835, when he practiced as a barrister and sat in the House of Commons. The caricature appears to be a commentary on his role as a leading opponent of the Reform Bill of 1832, which made him a prominent figure in British politics. The artist refers to Sugden as Chancellor, which leads us to date the image to 1835, the year of his Irish Chancellorship and a time when he was famous for his opposition to the Reform Bill.

        Lead-Coloured Falcon. Falco concolor; (Temm)

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) A selection from Birds of Europe. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½”. Lithograph accompanied by corresponding natural history description written by John Gould. Condition: Very good. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalogue exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine bird books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his monumental "Birds of Europe" have been recolored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance All of the Gould bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.***

        Black-Ouzel or Blackbird - Merula vulgaris

      London 1832 - ***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.*** This splendid hand-colored, folio size lithograph from John Gould's (1804-1881) monumental work "Birds of Europe" is in excellent condition, measures 14 ½” x 21 ½” and magnificently displays the author's scientific skill and attention to detail. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalog exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine bird books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his monumental "Birds of Europe" have been recolored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance All of the Gould bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.

        Preliminary Catalogue of Fixed Stars intended for a Prospectus of a Catalogue of the Stars of the Southern Hemisphere

      Hamburg: Perthes and Besser, 1832. Quarto, presentation inscription, the pages with a central fold, but an excellent copy in the original cloth binding gilt, red library stamp to verso of title-page. Royal presentation copy of the first Australian star catalogue, based on Parramatta observations. Very rare, and a foundation work of Australian science: the first Australian star catalogue, this copy inscribed by the author to the King of Hanover and Duke of Cumberland, Ernest Augustus.Christian Carl Ludwig Rümker (1788-1862), was a German astronomer who arrived in England in 1809. He worked for the East India Company and the merchant navy, before being press-ganged into the Royal Navy in 1813. Over the next few years he began making observations, including publishing the results of work he did at Malta. Recommended to the incoming Governor Brisbane personally, he arrived as part of the official party in 1821, beginning work at Brisbane's Parramatta observatory where he made several discoveries including "Encke's Comet". A bitter disagreement with Brisbane led him to resign his post, and to retreat to his new property at Picton, "Stargard".In 1826 he returned to Parramatta at the behest of Alexander Macleay, and was appointed government astronomer in December 1827, the first person to hold that title. He returned to London at the end of the decade, but another quarrel, this time with the president of the Royal Astronomical Society, Sir James South, led to Rümker finally being dismissed from British service and returning to Hamburg. Still working as an astronomer, at some point he became reconciled to Brisbane, as is beautifully shown by the present work's dedication to him as "Governor in Chief of Australia and Founder of the Observatory at Paramatta".Rümker's later career was prolific, publishing scores of papers and being honoured with many fellowships, and continuing to work on his trail-blazing Parramatta observations. He died at Lisbon in 1862. "When awarding the gold medal of the Royal Astronomical Society to Rümker, the astronomer royal, Sir George Biddell Airy, said that Rümker's dismissal was 'the greatest misfortune that happened to Southern Astronomy'" (ADB).The book is inscribed by Rümker to Ernest Augustus I (1771-1851), the fifth son of George III.

        Ueber Faraday's neueste Entdeckung.

      München, Weber, 1832.. Erste Ausgabe. 8vo. 31 S. Das Titelblatt oben mit einem hinterlegten Aussschnitt (ca. 1 x 7 cm). Bedruckte Orig.-Broschur. - Schneeberger, Schelling 119. In der Original-Broschur sehr selten."Seine wohl bedeutendste Festrede hält Schelling am 28. März 1832; ihr Thema ist die Entdeckung der elektromagnetischen Induktion durch Michael Faraday. Schelling begrüßt die experimentellen Ergebnisse Faradays als eine Bestätigung der naturphilosophischen Überzeugung, daß Magnetismus und Elektrizität nur verschiedene Erscheinungsformen derselben physikalischen Kraft seien. Diese These findet sich im Ersten Entwurf eines Systems der Naturphilosophie von 1799 [...] Es erscheint nicht übertrieben, in Schelling den geistigen Wegbereiter der elektromagnetischen Feldtheorie zu sehen."

        New South Wales Calendar and General Post Office Directory, 1833

      Sydney: Stephens & Stokes, December, 1832. Octavo, folding map, engraved title-page with view of the GPO, two folding tables, two folding plates (one hand-coloured), map of Mount Victoria, two views of the Mount Victoria pass by John Carmichael, and 11 engraved advertisements for Sydney merchants; a good copy in old quarter cloth on plain boards preserving an earlier black leather label. With an extensive series of local engravings. Rare Sydney almanac and directory in very good original state, with its complete suite of engraved plates and maps by three of the most important early Sydney printers and engravers, John Carmichael, William Wilson and William Moffitt.This was the second year of publication for the New South Wales Calendar, and it features an impressive roll-call of contributors. Of particular note is the engraved folding 'Map of the Town of Sydney 1833', engraved by Wilson from an original plan drawn by Major Thomas Mitchell, then serving as Surveyor-General of the colony. Importantly, Mitchell also contributes a 'Description of Mount Victoria', which details the building of the new pass over the Blue Mountains opened in 1832; Mitchell's report is accompanied by a map and two fine engravings by John Carmichael. Another major contribution is the interesting 'Sketch of the Colony of New South Wales; or, Australia' by the Reverend C. Pleydell N. Wilton, Chaplain of Newcastle.A fascinating inclusion is Phillip Parker King's 'Sailing Directions for the Navigation of the Inner Route, through Torres Strait; with a Description of the north eastern coast of New South Wales, from Breaksea Spit to Cape York' (pp. 19-52). Reprinted from its original appearance as an appendix to his voyage account of 1827, King's detailed reports are included here specifically 'in the hope of their being of use, and of rendering the passage of the inner route to Torres Strait more available to the commercial world', at a time when the treacherous waters of the Great Barrier Reef were playing host to increased shipping traffic.These almanacs are a rare opportunity to study the skill of the local engravers and printers, while also providing a detailed picture of life in the colony, whether it is the comprehensive 'Itinerary of Roads throughout New South Wales' (pp. 53-149), lists of the civil and military establishment, information regarding shipping, business and public institutions, or the 'General Post Office Directory' itself. Of great charm are the eleven engraved advertisements for local merchants including the watchmaker Broad, and Edward Fagan of the Wellington Brewery in George Street. 'In New South Wales almanacs and directories were chiefly devoted to government and commercial activities. Views of Sydney, maps and advertisements make up most of the pictorial content... Carmichael and Wilson came to the colony as free men; Moffitt was transported for stealing tea.' (Roger Butler, Printed Images in Colonial Australia 1801-1901, p. 63; for examples of some of the illustrated trade cards see also pp. 64-65).

        Observations on the Mussulmauns of India: descriptive of their manners, customs, and habits, and religious opinions. . . .

      Parbury, Allen, and Co. 1832 Full calf, each volume bearing a spine label and the gilt stamp of ?The Society of Writers to the Signet? on all four covers, both rebacked; occasional annotation in pencil. Unidentified bookplate on the paste - down of each volume. First edition. No mere travelogue, this fascinating and often overlooked work is an important account of the customs, beliefs, and practices of Muslims in India during the early nineteenth century. Written in the form of 27 letters by an Englishwoman who spent twelve years in northern India with her husband, an employee of the East India Company, this account challenged many of the reigning stereotypes held by Westerners at the time. Although she remained a Christian, the author gained intimate knowledge of the community in which she lived and included detailed descriptions of daily life and customs, including everything from the role of charity in Muslim culture to interactions between masters and slaves. Indeed, she even accounts on the life of Musalman ladies, describing religious feasts and fasts, marriage ceremonies and that of the surroundings of a native household. This occurred during the reigns of Ghazi - ud - din Haidar and Nasir - ud - din Haidar, who occupied the throne during her residence at Lucknow. Avoiding many references to the palace intrigues and apparent mis - administration, she makes only apologies for the disorganized state of the country. Apparently after the author returned to England, it is likely that she was attached in some capacity to the household of the Princess Augusta (d.1840), as the list of subscribers to her book is headed by Queen Adelaide, the Princess Augusta, and other ladies of the Royal Family. She must have been in good repute among Anglo - Indians, because several well - known names appear in the list. According to the preface to the second edition of 1917 by William Crooke: ?The value of the book rests on the fact that it is a record of the first - hand experiences of an English lady who occupied the exceptional position of membership of a Musalman family. She tells us nothing of her friends in Lucknow, but she had free access to the houses of respectable Sayyids, and thus gained ample facilities for the study of the manners and customs of Musalman families. Much of her information on Islam was obtained from her husband and his father, both learned, travelled gentlemen, and by them she was treated with a degree of toleration unusual in a Shi?ah household, this sect being rigid and often fanatical followers of Islam.?

Cm.29,5x19. Legature coeve in piena tela, con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi. Celebre testata popolare inglese della prima metà del XIX secolo. Così gli editori presentano il foglio nel primo numero del 31 Marzo 1832: "In a book upon the Poor, published in 1673, called 'The Grand Concern of England explained,' we find the following singular proposal: "that the multitude of stage - coaches and caravans, now travelling upon the roads, may all, or most of them, be suppressed, especially those within forty, fifty, or sixty miles of London". The evil of the stage - coaches is somewhat difficult to be perceived at the present day; but this ingenious author had no doubt whatever on the matter, "for," says he, "will any man keep a horse for himself and another for his man, all the year, for to ride one or two journies, that at pleasure, when he hath occasion, can step to any place where his business lies, for two, three, or four shillings, if within twenty miles of London, and so proportionately into any part of England?". We laugh at the lamentations over the evil of stage coaches, because we daily see or experience the benefits of the thousands of public conveyances carrying forward the personal intercourse of a busy population, and equally useful whether they run from Paddington to the Bank or from the General Post - Office to Edinburgh. Some however, who acknowledge the fallacy of putting down long and short stages, that horses may be kept all the year, "for to ride one or two journies", may fall into the very same mistake with regard to knowledge that was thus applied to communication. They may desire to retain a monopoly of literature for those who can buy expensive books; they may think a five - guinea quarto (like the horse for one or two journies) a public benefit and look upon a shilling duodecimo to be used by every one "at pleasure, when he hath occasion" (like the stage coach), as a public evil. What the stage - coach has become to the middle classes, we hope our Penny Magazine will be to all classes a universal convenience and enjoyment. The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge have considered it proper to commence this publication, from the belief that many persons, whose time and whose means are equally limited, may be induced to purchase and to read it. The various works already published by the society are principally adapted to diligent readers, to those who are anxiously desirous to obtain knowledge in a condensed and, in most cases, systematic form. But there are a very great number of persons who can spare half an hour for the reading of a newspaper, who are sometimes disinclined to open a book. For these we shall endeavour to prepare a useful and entertaining Weekly Magazine, that may be taken up and laid down without requiring any considerable effort; and that may tend to fix the mind upon calmer, and, it may be, purer subjects of thought than the violence of party discussion, or the stimulating details of crime and suffering. We have, however, no expectation of superseding the newspaper, and no desire to supersede it. We hope only to share some portion of the attention which is now almost exclusively bestowed upon "the folio of four pages", by those who read little and seldom. We consider it the duty of every man to make himself acquainted with the events that are passing in the world, with the progress of legislation, and the administration of the laws; for every man is deeply interested in all the great questions of government. Every man, however, may not be qualified to understand them; but the more he knows, the less hasty and the less violent will be his opinions. The false judgments which are sometimes formed by the people upon public events, can only be corrected by the diffusion of sound knowledge. Whatever tends to enlarge the range of observation, to add to the store of facts, to awake the reason, and to lead the imagination into agreeable and innocent trains of thought, may assist in the establishment of a sincere and ardent desire for information; and in this point of view our little Miscellany may prepare the way for the reception of more elaborate and precise knowledge, and be as the small optic - glass called "the finder", which is placed by the side of a large telescope, to enable the observer to discover the star which is afterwards to be carefully examined by the more perfect instrument".

        Runs of two 19th-century periodicals: FIGARO IN LONDON & THE LITERARY GUARDIAN AND SPECTATOR OF BOOKS, SCIENCE, FINE ARTS, ETC.

      William Strange ; William Tindall, London 1832 - 4to. cloth spine with paper-covered boards with two paper labels on front board. Various. Two runs of early nineteenth-century periodical bound together. #1-62 ; #1-45 issues. The first is the well-known Figaro in London , with a title page Volume 1 for the year 1832. No. 1 is dated Saturday, December 10, 1831, followed by a complete run through No. 62 dated Saturday, February 9, 1832 (which should be 1833). No. 61 is correctly dated as Saturday, February 2, 1833. (Union List of Serials, 1558).There is no title page for Volume 2, although the run certainly goes well into it. Figaro in London was published by William Strange, edited by Gilbert á Beckett and illustrated by Robert Seymour. Strange was a bookseller in London who carried many of the popular papers of the day. á Beckett went on to greater fame as one of the editors of Punch, of which Figaro in London was a precursor. Seymour, gifted illustrator and caricaturist, was well known. He committed suicide while illustrating the Pickwick Papers. This is a complete run of The Literary Guardian andSpectator of Books, Science , Fine Arts, Etc. (Union List of Serials , 2438). They have been bound somewhat in reverse. #28-45 precede #1-27 . The publisher was William Tindall. It may be noted that this paper could be purchased weekly at William Strange's bookshop. There are few illustrations, mostly those of a scientific nature. Per OCLC, while a number of libraries have The Literary Guardian on microfiche, very few have actual copies. The spine cloth is separating, some of the signatures have come loose, and the boards are very worn. The pages are surprisingly good, although some of them are tattered at the edges. cloth spine with paper-covered boards with two paper labels on front board [Attributes: Hard Cover]
