        Views in India.

      London: for the author,, 1833. Royal quarto (287 × 224 mm), 78 pp. Contemporary maroon cross-grain half morocco, spine richly gilt in compartments, flat bands, green morocco label, straight-ribbed maroon cloth sides, marbled edges. Lithographic vignette title page, engraved list of subscribers, 30 lithographic views after sketches by the author. Bound from the parts with stab-holes visible in gutter; letterpress and plates edge-bound as usual. Joints and extremities rubbed, tips bumped, cloth unevenly faded, pp. 5-6 (unsigned but evidently sig. B3) and accompanying plate (Distant View of Oorcha) misbound before pp. 1-2 (B1), light foxing to title, subscribers' list, and final two plates, these last with a pale tide-mark to the fore edge not affecting image, plate facing p. [28] spotted and browned, the occasional marginal spot to other plates. A very good copy. First and only edition, rare, especially so complete, as here: three copies only traced at auction of which two lacking the subscriber's list, a third copy lacking five plates; Copac locates three copies in UK libraries (British Library, National Library of Scotland, and the V & A), OCLC adding three institutional copies world-wide of which one (the Minnesota copy) is substantially incomplete, with 56 text-pages only (the other copies in Basel and Canberra). Abbey did not have a copy, and the subscribers' list records just 87 names. Bellew (1799-1868) was employed in the Hyderabad Civil Service, rising to deputy-assistant-commissary-general for Bengal and retiring with the rank of captain in 1832. Authorship is sometimes attributed to his brother Henry Walter (1803-42), father of the noted army doctor and Afghanistan expert of the same, but Henry Sr's continuous career in the Bengal army, into which he was commissioned in 1815 and in whose service he died fighting in the First Afghan War, makes this comparatively unlikely. Francis also published an autobiography, Memoirs of a Griffin, in 1845. His accomplished sketches include topographical and architectural views mainly in northern India, including Bhimtal, Almora, Jhansi and elsewhere, as well as several views of Orchha in central India and Arakan (now in Myanmar). The errata leaves (counted in the pagination) indicate that Views in India was originally issued in at least four fascicles, which offers an explanation for its remarkable scarcity today.

        Entrepotdok - Petrus Josephus Lutgers, 1833.

      BEDRIJVIGHEID IN HET ALGEMEEN RIJKSENTREPOT TE AMSTERDAM?Entrep?t-dok, te Amsterdam? van Nieuwe Herengracht naar Oranje Nassau Kazerne gezien, steendruk uit 1833 van de hand van Petrus Josephus Lutgers, gedrukt door Desguerrois & Co. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm ca. 37 x 46 cm.Losse uitgave van de tekenmeester, schilder en lithograaf Lutgers (1808-1874), die als landschapsschilder gespecialiseerd was in riviergezichten.Om in de 19e-eeuw transitohandel in Amsterdam te stimuleren, konden in het Rijks Entrepot goederen tijdelijk worden opgeslagen, zonder dat daarover invoerrechten moesten te worden afgedragen. Accijnzen hoefden pas te worden betaald op het moment dat de goederen op de markt werden gebracht.Na de oprichting van het Rijks Entrepot werden tussen 1827 en 1840 werden 51 reeds bestaande pakhuizen aangekocht van particuliere eigenaren. Ook werden er 33 nieuwe pakhuizen bijgebouwd. De pakhuizen van de particuliere eigenaren waren in gebruik als opslag van wijn, cacao, graan, rogge, hout, walvis-spek en walvis-traan. Ze droegen namen als Bordeaux Brandewijnstuk, Dantzig en de Hoop. Na de overname krijgen de pakhuizen nieuwe namen. Gekozen wordt voor de namen van de handelssteden uit de Noordelijke en Zuidelijke Nederlanden (het latere Belgi?), waarmee vanuit Amsterdam handel wordt gedreven. De naamgeving van de panden is een hommage aan het nieuwe nationale zelfbewustzijn dat opkwam na de Franse tijd.Omdat het Rijks Entrepot in 1827 een afgesloten en bewaakt douane-terrein wordt, komt er rondom het Entrepot een hoge muur aan de zijde van de Kadijk. Het terrein wordt bewaakt door hellebaardiers en krijgt slechts ??n toegang: het nog steeds bestaande poortgebouw aan het Kadijksplein.Tegen het eind van de 19e eeuw kunnen zeeschepen vanwege hun toegenomen grootte het Entrepot niet meer bereiken. Ze leggen nu aan in de haven van Amsterdam. In 1894 wordt het Entrepotdok overgenomen door de gemeente Amsterdam en wordt weer een normale goederenopslag.Prijs: ?975,- (incl. lijst).

        Kiyoko zuga [= Representation of Nagasaki harbour].[Nagasaki, ca. 1880?]. A large watercolour painting of Nagasaki harbour (image size: 49.5 x 87.5 cm), probably on mulberry bark paper, with one large Asian ship, more than a dozen small Asian boats, and a steam boat in the background, all rendered following Western conventions of perspective. In a passe-partout in a modern wooden frame painted gold (95 x 125 cm), behind glass.

      A large watercolour painting from the Meiji period showing Nagasaki harbour viewed from the city, looking across at the Papenburg (Dutch for Pope's mountain), named for the many Catholic martyrs who were thrown off the peak. A large Asian ship in the harbour (15.5 cm tall in the painting) forms a focal point in the painting, while the masts of another appear in the foreground at left. Several more Asian sailing ships appear far in the background and there are many small rowboats in the foreground and background. Of special interest is a steamboat sailing into the harbour in the background left, with two smokestacks.Ochiai Yoshiiku (1833-1904) belonged to the group of woodcut artists known as the Utagawa school, and is therefore also known as Utagawa Yoshiiku. He studied with Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861), who had studied with Tokokuni I (1769-1825), who took charge of the group when its founder, his teacher Utagawa Toyoharu (1735-1814), died. The Utagawa school is known for mixing Western traditions, especially Western perspective, into traditional Japanese styles. While most of Ochiai's work remained faithful to the traditional manner, the present painting shows a nearly pure Western perspective. This combined with the fact that his name also appears transliterated in the Latin alphabet may mean this painting was made for a European patron.With a few wrinkles in the paper slightly affecting the mountain at the right, the sky near it and the sail of the large ship, but otherwise in fine condition. A lovely and unusually large Japanese watercolour painting, showing Nagasaki harbour with many ships and boats.

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1833. Octavo (158 × 100 mm). Bound in contemporary black half calf by Seargeant's Abergavenny, marbled sides, titles to spine in gilt, buff endpapers, edges red. Engraved vignette titles and frontispieces by William Greatbach after Ferninand Pickering (with tissue-guards intact). Bound without half-title. Boards a little scuffed, recased, a couple of small adhesions to text. Withal a very good, clean, copy. First Bentley edition, the second edition overall, and the first English edition to be illustrated. In 1832–3 Richard Bentley bought the copyright to all Austen's novels, which had not been reissued since 1818, to include them in his Standard Novels series, of which this is no. XXV. The Bentley illustrations, by the obscure Ferdinand Pickering, played an integral part in the reception of Austen's novels; according to one Austen scholar, they "promoted a sense that her novels were best understood as familial, female focused, and sensational. For decades, these illustrations would have served to steer readers away from the conclusion that Austen's fiction ought to be understood as social, comic, or didactic" (Davoney Looser, The Making of Jane Austen, 2017, p. 20).

      Boston [circa 1835 - 1845]: Munroe and Francis, 1833. First Edition, Early Printing . Cloth Over Boards / Gilt. Very Good. 5.5" / 14.3 Cm Tall. Hand Colored Plates Throughout. 95 Pp + Ad On P 96. 1833 Copyright Date, Title Page With "Boston: Printed And Published By Munroe And Francis". In The Rare Binding Of Brown Cloth Over Stiff Card, Covers Blindstamped And With Gilt "Goose's Melodies". Hardcover Deluxe Edition With Hand-Colored Plates. Estimated Printing Over Several Years 1833 Of Over 100,000 Copies; Only 1 Is Shown In Worldcat And Only About 12 Copies Known To The Bibliographer (Bleiler) In 1970, Although There Are Additional Copies Known, For Example At The American Antiquarian Society And The New York Historical Society, Almost All Known Copies Are Bound In Printed Paper Wrappers. An Early Modern "Mother Goose" For Children Printed In America, With Extensive Borrowings From Earlier Editions, And Itself Extensively Reprinted And Borrowed From By Other Publishers In The Nineteenth Century, Still Quite Readable Today For Adults And Children, Preserving The Rhymes In Nearly The Versions Used At Present. The Difficult Bibliography Of This Book Is Provided At Length By Bleiler In His Introduction And Bibliographical Appendix To The 1970 Dover Reprint. Briefly: He Describes, In Apparent Date Order, The Hamilton, Rosenbach, Brown, And Dover Types; The First Two Were Known To Him Only In Single Copies, The Brown And Dover Versions [The Dover Version In Both Boston And New York Imprints] In Several Copies Each. This Example Appears To Be A Deluxe, Hardcover, Hand-Colored Mixed State Apparently Issued Between Bleiler's Brown And Dover States, With Most But Not All Text Corresponding To The Dover Version, With The Following Points: The Title Page Shows The Boston Imprint Of Munroe And Francis; P. 2 Has "Billy", Unlike Hamilton But Like Brown And Dover; The Illustration On P. 36 Is Upside Down, As In The Hamilton And Rosenbach Copies, But This Was Corrected In The Dover Edition, So This Printing Apparently Is After His "Brown" Version But Precedes The Dover Variety; P. 11 Text Is "Sing, Sing!", With Final Period, This Period Noted As Lacking In The Dover Edition; And Pp 55 And 84 Have The Illustrations That Bleiler Notes As Present Only In The "Earlier" Munroe And Francis Printings. Page 12 Has "Bye Baby Bunting", As In The Dover Variety, And Unlike The "Hi Diddle" In The Brown Variety. The Brown Cloth Binding Is Similar But Not Identical To That Cloth Binding Which Bleiler Indicates Was Used For A Hardcover Edition Of The Dover Variety, And The Illustrations Are In Four Colors [Blue, Green, Yellow, And Red] Lacking The Fifth Color, Orange, Which Bleiler Ascribes To The Hardcover Printing Of The Dover Variety. The Contents Are Not Similar To The Later Whitmore Or Hislop States, Of Course. The Points Thus Indicate An Early Printing, Later Than The Brown Example Cited By Bleiler But Earlier Than The Dover Example Which He Cites. Light Wear, No Chips Or Tears, Cover Gilt Bright, Small Corner Crease At Lower Front Tip, Hinges Solid Binding Intact, Pages With Some Wear But No Tears Or Losses, Colors Bright, An Exceptionally Nice Example Of A Scarce And Important Early American Children's Book.

        Sketches of Turkey in 1831 and 1832.

      New York: J. J. Harper,, 1833. By an American. Octavo in half-sheets (227 x 140 mm). Later 19th-century red half calf, spine richly gilt in compartments, dotted roll gilt to raised bands, green morocco label, marbled sides, edges and endpapers. Wood-engravings to the text. Bound without the 4 pages of advertisements. Bookplate of Lancashire chemist and discriminating bibliophile Robert J. Hayhurst to the front pastedown. Spine sunned, extremities lightly rubbed, scattered light spotting, a small number of leaves roughly trimmed along the fore edge, the text never affected, occasional lightly pencilled underlining and marginalia. A very good copy. First edition. De Kay (1792-1851), best remembered for his achievements in zoology, travelled to Istanbul with his father-in-law Henry Eckford, a noted American shipbuilder engaged to rebuild the Ottoman fleet following the Battle of Navarino; De Kay himself was briefly considered for the newly created position of American consul in Constaninople. The visit also coincided with the sweeping military and administrative reforms of Sultan Mahmud II (r. 1808-39), which under his son and successor Abdülmecid I became known as the Tanzimat. De Kay's account, "a very interesting work full of historical and and political sketches and including a special chapter on the first treaty between the Porte and the US" (Blackmern), also contains lively descriptions of the neighbourhoods of Istanbul, its Armenian, Greek and Jewish communities, and public health issues. The book is well-held in American libraries, but only seven copies in UK institutions, and only infrequently coming to market.

        Northanger Abbey [and] Persuasion.

      London: Richard Bentley, 1833 - Octavo. Original purple glazed linen boards, twin black spine labels lettered in gilt, green silk page marker. Armorial bookplate of J. B. Gibson to front pastedown. Spine faded to buff, as generally seen, a few marks to covers, tips slightly bumped, occasional faint spot to contents. An excellent copy. Engraved vignette title and frontispiece by William Greatbach after Ferninand Pickering (tissue-guards intact). First Bentley edition, in the first issue binding, the second edition overall, and the first English edition to be illustrated. In 1832–3 Richard Bentley bought the copyright to all Austen's novels, which had not been reissued since 1818, to include them in his Standard Novels series, of which this is no. XXVIII. The Bentley illustrations, by the obscure Ferdinand Pickering, played an integral part in the reception of Austen's novels; according to one Austen scholar, they "promoted a sense that her novels were best understood as familial, female focused, and sensational. For decades, these illustrations would have served to steer readers away from the conclusion that Austen's fiction ought to be understood as social, comic, or didactic" (Davoney Looser, The Making of Jane Austen, 2017, p. 20).

        Histoire chirurgicale du siège de la citadelle d'Anvers ; extrait des Mémoires de médecine militaire, t. XXXIV.

      Paris, Imprimerie de Mme Huzard (née Vallat de La Chapelle) 1833 - in-8, [2] ff. n. ch (titre, dédicace), 372 pp., demi-veau cerise à coins, dos lisse orné de chaînettes dorées et de fleurons à froid, pièce de titre prune, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale de cette relation qui marque la deuxième expérience marquante de Félix-Hippolyte Larrey (1808-1895), fils du célèbre chirurgien de la Grande Armée : reçu docteur en médecine dès 1832, il suivit cette même année son père dans la toute jeune Belgique, pour l'assister dans l'organisation du service de santé militaire que le roi Léopold avait confiée au baron Larrey. Puis il fit fonction d'aide-major pendant le siège d'Anvers en 1833, et ce sont les événements médicaux et militaires auxquels il participa qu'il raconte dans notre ouvrage. Comme l'on sait, il poursuivit une brillante carrière médicale dans le sillage de son père. Précieux exemplaire du maréchal Jean-de-Dieu Soult (1769-1851), alors ministre de la guerre de Louis-Philippe, avec envoi autographe de l'auteur. Soult et Larrey père se sont connus au moins pendant la Guerre de la Péninsule. L'ouvrage passa ensuite dans la collection du baron René Reille (1835-1898, cachet humide), petit-fils de Masséna, ce qui fait quand même deux belles provenances napoléoniennes. Bel exemplaire.

        Atlas de l'Europe, 165 feuilles echelle 1/600.000, dessiné par Henry Perkin, gravé sur pierre sous la direction de P. Doms par F. Charles et L. Boulens.

      Bruxelles, Etablissement Vandermaelen, 1833. Tre giganteschi volumi in folio massimo, frontespizio e 165 fogli con plan d'assemblage, 2 indici e 162 carte geografiche litografate su carta grave, con greca geometrica di riquadro e confini colorati. Leg. in m. pergamena coeva. Dorsi con qualche menda alle cuffie. Interno con 4 o 5 tavv. con difetti o restauri solo marginali. Inoltre varie tavv. lievemente brunite. Opera e monumentale ed assai travagliata che impegnò l'Etablissemente del Vandermaelen per oltre 4 anni. L'ambizione del suo editore di rappresentare l'intero continente ad una scala uniforme e la novità assoluta di ricorrere alla stampa litografica (il Vandermaelen fu infatti il ptimo ad adoperare questo procedimento su vasta scala) quando tutti gli atlanti erano ancora stampati con lastre di rame, ebbe un notevolissimo impatto in tutta Europa ed anche negli Stati Uniti. L'Atlante è qui presente nel-l'introvabile stesura originale di 165 fogli (infatti fu ristampato nel 1840 in solo 100 fogli di carta più leggera, sempre alla stessa scala, ma eliminando l'Islanda, la Lapponia e le parti periferiche della Russia). A causa degli alti costi di realizzazione - e conseguentemente dell'alto prezzo di vendita - non ebbe il successo finanziario sperato dall'editore-stampatore. All'Italia sono riservate 14 tavole. Lavoro superbo e di eccezionale rarità. Woodward, Five Centu-ries of Map Printing, pp. 102-104. 22.

        Plan of London From Actual Survey, 1833

      London: United Kingdom Newspaper. Map. Steel engraving. Image measures 21.5" x 32" Map. Steel engraving. Image measures 21.5" x 32". This map of London issued by the United Kingdom Newspaper provides an astounding amount of information about the city in 1833. Making use of the fine detail possible with the new technology of steel engraving, the map meticulously illustrates and labels buildings and streets at a small size, extending south from Regents Park to the Surrey Zoological Gardens and east from Hyde Park to the commercial docks. A decorative geometric border sets the map off from a surround of vignettes depicting 33 of the city's architectural landmarks--including the Bank of England, Lambeth Palace, Covent Garden and Waterloo Bridge--also with remarkable fineness. At the top of the map, the title flanks an elaborate cartouche that combines seals, coats of arms, flags, and other symbols of the British Empire. Such fanfare reveals the scope and power of the city at this point in history, which would only increase in the following decade with the completion of the Thames Tunnel, the world%u2019s first underwater tunnel, shown here under construction. The United Kingdom Newspaper celebrated this achievement by issuing the map free to its readers, an offer also made possible by the highly durable plates of steel engraving. The map is in good condition with some toning, offsetting, and wear to the folds. Small tears in the paper's edges not affecting the image. The print's quality and detail shine through these common signs of wear. John Shury was a British engraver and printer who worked with the publishing firm known as the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, or SDUK. This firm was formed in 1826 and published low cost maps with the goal of reaching a large market while still maintaining high quality and precision.
