        Dai Nihon Yochi Benran. ???????

      Tenpo 5. 1834.. TWO VOLUMES, 76 double page color woodblock maps (41+35), 10 1/8 x 7 inches (26 x 18 cm), Japanese accordion style binding with decorative embossed paper covers. There is worming to many, but not all, of the pages, occasional light soiling to margins, covers quite worn. This beautiful woodblock atlas begins with a map of Japan, which is followed by maps of the individual provinces, and finally a map of the world. This map emphasises the effects on geographic knowledge of Japan's closure to outside influence, featuring California as an island, and a mapping of Australia (marked "megaranika" presumably relating to the color of the inhabitants and joined to New Guinea to the north and to Antarctica at the south) which was profoundly out of date. New Zealand does not appear on the map. .

        Autograph letter signed "Bellini" to Francesco Florimo (1800-1888)

      1 page of a bifolium. Dated Paris, December 19, 1834. In ink on lightweight paper. With integral autograph address panel. In Italian (with translation). Bellini informs Florimo that French composer [Antoine] Elwart (1808-1877), Bellini's protégé, will be coming to Naples from the Paris Conservatoire and asks that Florimo introduce him to the composer Niccolò Zingarelli (1752-1827) and other important musicians in the city, and "be useful to him if you can."Browned; creased at folds; small pinholes to corners and near central fold not affecting text; remains of former hinging to blank upper margin. With early printed French dealer or auction catalogue description to blank lower right corner of verso. . A leading figure in early 19th-century opera, Bellini was especially noted for his expressive melodies and sensitive approach to text-setting. Francesco Florimo was his fellow-student at the Conservatory and closest friend. "... [His] attachment to Florimo never wavered, and his long and frequent letters to his friend are by far our fullest source of information about his professional and personal life. Florimo remained in Naples as librarian at the conservatory until his death in 1888, but his true calling was as chronicler and guardian of Bellini's fame. In 1882 he published a biography and edition of Bellini's letters; although Florimo's desire to protect and enhance his friend's reputation sometimes led him to censor or even substantially falsify the content of the letters, his portrait of the composer remains valuable and influential."

        Barber's Picturesque Illustrations of the Isle of Wight Comprising Views of every object of interest on the Island Engraved from Original Drawings Accompanied by Historical and Topographical Descriptions [Signed by Swinburne and by ... (Truncated)

      Simpkin and Marshall, [1834], First edition, Illustrated By: William Henry Bartlett, Henry Winkles, Samuel Fisher, Edward Radclyffe, William Wallis, George Jones, James Tingle, William WestwoodFull Book Title: Barber's Picturesque Illustrations of the Isle of Wight Comprising Views of every object of interest on the Island Engraved from Original Drawings Accompanied by Historical and Topographical Descriptions [Signed by Swinburne and by Maxwell Gray / Mary Gleed Tuttiett][1834], 1834. A Very Good copy of the scarce first edition, first printing, rebound in three-quarter green leather with the spine decorated, lined, and lettered in gilt (edge wear to boards -- including some rubbing through at the edges, rubbing to the surface of the marbled boards, splash stain to the title page's lower left corner which also touches the adjoining fold-out map's margin -- not affecting the illustration or the lettering), with 40 steel engravings by William Henry Bartlett, Henry Winkles, Samuel Fisher, Edward Radclyffe, William Wallis, George Jones, James Tingle, and William Westwood. [A few of the delicate tissue guards are lacking, a few have some wrinkling, chip, or tear, and a few are loose but present.] This copy has been SIGNED BY ALGERNON CHARLES SWINBURNE AND BY MARY GLEED TUTTIETT on the front free endpaper, the Isle of Wight's two most famous residents. [The book's pastedown has been signed "N [?] Aitchison 1834", who we presume to have been the first owner of this rare copy, the Aitchisons being an old Isle of Wight family. Aitchison's having dated the book, of course, confirms this copy as being a true copy of the first edition] Mary Gleed Tuttiett wrote under the pseudonym "Maxwell Gray" and achieved great fame with her 1886 novel "The Silence of Dean Maitland". Set in a fictionalized Isle of Wight, the tale centers around a young clergyman who kills the father of a young woman that he, the clergyman, has made pregnant and who then allows his best friend to be wrongly convicted for the crime. The novel provided the basis for a stage play and for three films. One of England's great Poets, Algernon Charles Swinburne was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in every year from 1903 to 1907 and again in 1909, never winning the Prize. Other famous Isle of Wight residents have included Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Charles I of England [as a Prisoner], Charles Dickens [who rented a summer house there], survival expert Bear Grylls, Robert Hooke, Jeremy Irons, David Niven, Henry Sewell - New Zealand's first Prime Minister or Premier, and many others. A Rare copy of the first edition, with a date confirming this copy as such, SIGNED BY TWO OF THE ISLE'S MOST FAMOUS PERSONAGES, ALGERNON CHARLES SWINBURNE AND MAXWELL GRAY [MARY GLEED TUTTIETT]. RARE INDEED.

        Remarks on Transportation and on a Recent Defence of the System; in a second letter to Earl Grey

      London: B. Fellowes, 1834. Octavo, contemporary full polished calf, spine gilt with morocco label. Richard Whately was an enthusiastic agitator against transportation (his influential 1832 pamphlet Thoughts on Secondary Punishments led in part to the House of Commons select committee inquiry) this was founded on his belief that punishment and effective colonization were contradictory aims. Being an ardent penal reformer, he believed that prisoners should know the real meaning of their sentences and was therefore a supporter of certain sentences being irremissible. He became an enthusiastic phrenologist and had a cast of his head made at Oxford in 1831, submitting it to three phrenologists in all. He sympathized with George Combe's view of phrenology as the philosophy of the New Testament. It was another example of the compatibility of Christianity with the new sciences, and in particular a 'scientific' demonstration of man's moral faculty.

        A Historical Sketch of the Origin and Progress of Literature for the B

      1834. BLIND PRINTING. A Historical Sketch of the Origin and Progress of Literature for the Blind: And Practical Hints and Recommendations as to Their Education. With an Appendix, Containing Directions for Teaching, Reading, and Writing to the Blind, With and Without a Regular Teacher. By James Gall. xx, [9]-388 pp. Illustrated with 3 embossed plates. 8vo., bound in nineteenth-century half morocco. Edinburgh: James Gall et al., 1834. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition: scarce. James Gall (1784-1874), an Edinburgh printer, publisher, and wood engraver, occupied premises in Niddry Street after about 1819. In the Report of the Royal Commission on the Useful Arts (1852, p.414), Gall was commended for his zeal and patience in his attempts to produce the perfect code for tactile reading. 'It is to Mr. Gall, perhaps, more than any other man, that the interest in education of the blind was awakened throughout Great Britain and America'. Later, in 1837, Gall was to describe how, 'perceiving that angles were more readily felt than rounds, and that the outside of the letter was more easily felt than the inside, he modified the alphabet into its most simple form, throwing the characteristics of each letter to the outside, and using angles instead of curves'. First introduced to public scrutiny in 1831, Gall's angular Roman type was first used in any significant way for the printing of The Gospel of St. John in 1834. Gall's Historical Sketch was one of the most comprehensive studies on the literature of the blind of its time, as well as one of the earliest in the English language. It is still valuable as a remarkably detailed and comprehensive account of the early development of specialist printing for the blind and the beginnings of the provision of real charitable education for blind people. This copy contains two additional plates of music, not issued with the book, which was published with just the one plate. Craigie, Bibliography of Scottish Education 85.

        Autograph letter signed "Bellini" to Francesco Florimo (1800-1888)

      1 page of a bifolium. Dated Paris, December 19, 1834. In ink on lightweight paper. With integral autograph address panel. In Italian (with translation). Bellini informs Florimo that French composer [Antoine] Elwart (1808-1877), Bellini's protégé, will be coming to Naples from the Paris Conservatoire and asks that Florimo introduce him to the composer Niccolò Zingarelli (1752-1827) and other important musicians in the city, and "be useful to him if you can." Browned; creased at folds; small pinholes to corners and near central fold not affecting text; remains of former hinging to blank upper margin. With early printed French dealer or auction catalogue description to blank lower right corner of verso. . A leading figure in early 19th-century opera, Bellini was especially noted for his expressive melodies and sensitive approach to text-setting. Francesco Florimo was his fellow-student at the Conservatory and closest friend. "... [His] attachment to Florimo never wavered, and his long and frequent letters to his friend are by far our fullest source of information about his professional and personal life. Florimo remained in Naples as librarian at the conservatory until his death in 1888, but his true calling was as chronicler and guardian of Bellini's fame. In 1882 he published a biography and edition of Bellini's letters; although Florimo's desire to protect and enhance his friend's reputation sometimes led him to censor or even substantially falsify the content of the letters, his portrait of the composer remains valuable and influential." Mary Ann Smart et al in Grove online Elward won the Prix de Rome shortly after this letter was written with his "Omaggio alla memoria di Vincenzo Bellini," performed at the Teatro Valle in 1835.

Rare separate issue of Numan's detailed and beautifully illustrated study of the larvae of the equine botfly (family Oestridae), an internal parasite of horses. Alexander Numan (1780-1852) discusses the different species of botfly found in the stomachs of horses, the way the eggs are transferred to the intestines, their growth and development, the effect on the health of the host animal, and the various ways they may be removed. The essay appeared both in the Nieuwe Verhandelingen der eerste klasse van het Koninklijk-Nederlandse Instituut van Wetenschappen, and in the present, much rarer separate issue, where only the plates refer to the journal. - Numan completed his medical studies at Groningen in 1804. He wrote a prize-winning essay on the Keil dysentery epidemic of 1810, which appeared in 1812. In the same year he was asked to translate a veterinary manual and later to write his own, which went through five editions from 1819 to 1856. When the first Dutch veterinary school opened at Utrecht in 1821, no suitable professor could be found in the practice, and the position went to Numan. He went on to write many excellent articles, the best known of which discusses cow pox (1831). - Wrappers slightly damaged at spine, but still very good. A fine copy of a rare and well-illustrated essay by a pioneering veterinary researcher. KVK (1 copy). NCC (4 copies). Not in Garrison/M., Landwehr Coloured Plates, Nissen ZBI.

      Weimar, 12. Juli 1834.. 2 SS. 4to. Doppelblatt. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An den Philologen und Archäologen Joseph Anselm von Feuerbach (1798-1851): "Ihr lieber Brief liegt schon seit Monaten auf meinem Tisch und ich habe mich aufs neue der Säumigkeit gegen Sie anzuklagen [...] Ihr Werk [d. i. der 1833 erschienene "Vatikanische Apoll"] habe ich noch vor meiner Abreise von München angefangen und wollte Ihnen gern meinen Dank dafür zugleich mit einer kurzen Rechenschaft von dem Eindruck sagen, den es mir gemacht. Durch den traurigen Verlust aber, der über mich ergangen, als ich eben hier in den Hafen der Ruhe eingelaufen zu seyn dachte, bin ich wie zu Allem, so auch dazu unfähig geworden und es käme jetzt viel zu spät wenn ich Ihnen meine Freude über die Vorzüge Ihres Buches noch zu erkennen geben wollte. Nehmen Sie also statt dessen nur meinen einfachen Dank. Das aber kann ich nicht verschweigen, wie sehr es mich betrübt, Sie nicht an meiner Stelle in München zu wissen. Ich hatte es gehofft, Thiers [?] hatte es gewünscht - wie ist es möglich, daß man an einem Kunstorte, wie München, nicht darauf sucht, einen Professor der Archäologie zu haben? [...] Wegen des Honorars für den Aufsatz im Kunstblatt habe ich gleich nach Empfang Ihres Berichts an Cotta geschrieben u. von ihm die Versicherung erhalten daß die Sache unverzügl. besorgt werden solle; ich hoffe daher es wird seitdem alles in Ordnung gekommen seyn [...]". Schorn redigierte von 1820 bis 42 das Cottasche "Kunstblatt" in Stuttgart, unternahm Studienreisen nach Italien, Frankreich, England und in die Niederlande und lehrte seit 1826 als Professor in München; 1832 wurde er Hofrat und Direktor der Kunstanstalten in Weimar. - Bl. 2 mit Siegelrest und kl. Einr. (keine Textberührung); beide Seiten von Bl. 1 mit altem Sammlervermerk zum Verfasser bzw. zum Verfasser und zur Provenienz ("Don[atio] Fr. Prof. Feuerbach").

        Scenes and Recollections of Fly-fishing in Northumberland, Cumberland and Westmorland. By Stephen Oliver, The Younger

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1834. First edition. Vignette on title page and wood-engraved illustrations in the text. [iv], 212 pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Bound in Japanese embossed leather, titled in gilt up the spine, a.e.g. by Sarah T. Prideaux and signed with her stamped initials, "S.T.P. 1892" on the back pastedown. With an early American provenance, "James W. Shea Shadyside Pittsburgh 12/25/94". Extremities and joints rubbed with 1/4-inch triangular chip from head of spine, scuff at foot. Dark green half morocco slipcase and chemise. Very Early, Unrecorded Prideaux Binding An UNRECORDED Prideaux binding from early in her career, bound in embossed Japanese leather with polychrome patterns of fish, turtles, and seaweed similar to a binding on The Water Babies from the same period. The lettering is bold and simple, titled up the spine, with no further gilt tooling. Prideaux sent work to the Columbian World's Fair Exhibition in Chicago (1893). The Pittsburgh provenance suggests that this was one of the bindings displayed there."Her first three known bindings are quite plain, but they are bound in decorative leathers. One is gray and white snakeskin, the other two in colorful Japanese embossed leathers; of this latter pair, one has the design of seaweeds and sea creatures, the other the design of chrysanthemums and other flowers (The British Bookmaker, Vol. 4, p. 26). The sea creatures binding is on one of two copies of Charles Kingsley's The Water Babies, bound for the 1891 Tregaskis exhibition, probably the first exhibition Sarah Prideaux entered ... " (Tidcombe).This binding is not recorded in the Catalogue of Books Bound (1900) nor does it figure in Tidcombe's list of bindings by Prideaux derived from the published Catalogue and consultation of the binder's own annotated copy.
