        Norfolk; from Gosport, Virginia

      Philadelphia: published by Thomas T. Ash, [1835]. Aquatint by Hill after Shaw, lightly coloured by hand. Minor tape stains to blank margins. In fine French washline mat. 13 x 17 inches. A rare example of a print from an extremely rare work that is now considered to be a 'milestone in American printmaking ... a foundation book for American color-plate publication, being the first publication in the United States of larger colored landscapes essentially scenic in effect" (Koke). This lively scene shows Norfolk from Gosport and is from a suite of twenty plates published under the general title 'Picturesque Views of American Scenery'. The original intention had been to publish 36 plates in six parts but the work was abandoned after only four parts had appeared (published primarily by Matthew Carey & Son). Thomas Ash acquired the rights to the set and republished them in 1835. Any examples from either edition are now rare. Joshua Shaw, a British-born landscape artist of note, was inspired by the magificence of the American landscape ("in no other quarter of the globe are the majesty and loveliness of nature more strikingly conspicuous than in America."). Shaw set out to popularise the picturesque in America. His beautiful images were skillfully interpreted by engraver John Hill and the results can rightly be said to have been one of elements which led to the growth of what became the Hudson River School of landscape painting. The popularity of the Hudson River School from the mid-1820s onwards, paid dividends for the Shaw's work as well and Thomas Ash was encouraged to reprint the series in 1835. Deak 315.12; cf.

        Sir Thomas Browne's Works, including his Life and Correspondence

      London: William Pickering, and Josiah Fletcher, Norwich, , 1835-6. 4 volumes octavo (216 × 138 mm) Handsome late nineteenth-century olive green crushed morocco by Roger de Coverley - stamp verso of front free endpapers - title gilt direct to spines, bands with single gilt rule, compartments simply panelled with single rules top and bottom and double rules at the sides, stylised acorn lozenge centre-tool, boards with triple fillet panel the outer gilt the inner two, thick and thin, in blind, gilt fleuron corner-pieces, single fillet edge roll, top edges gilt, the others uncut, double fillet roll to the turn-ins, marbled endpapers Engraved portrait frontispiece to volume I, folding facsimile document in volume II, Browne's monument as frontispiece to volume III, and a plan of the "green yard" of Norwich Cathedral to volume IV, 4 illustrations to the text. Half-titles bound in. Spines perhaps a touch tanned, very light shelf-wear, occasional spotting and some marginal browning but overall, armorial bookplate, motto "ego vehemens sum", name obliterated to the front pastedowns, a very good set in an attractively restrained binding. First edition. The "twelve years' labour of love … of a Norwich bookseller of gentle blood and good education" (Saintsbury, A History of Elizabethan Literature, p. 338), Wilkin's Browne was described by Southey as "the best edited book in the English language". Wilkin's meticulous collation of manuscripts and early editions, and exhaustive research into Browne's vast correspondence in the British Museum and Bodleian, led Geoffrey Keynes, who was editing the new edition of the works (published 1964) to consider him "the ideal editor for Browne". Far from common, and this - in the words of an earlier bookseller's description, loosely inserted - a "choice set".

        Das Sofa. Mit 3 Kupfern

      Paris, Peter Hammer (d. i. Leipzig, Wigand?), ca. 1835.. Mit 3 erotischen Lithographien. X, 294 S. Sehr dekorativer grüner Kalbslederband (um 1920) mit goldgepr. Rückentitel, Rückenvergold. goldgepr. reicher Deckenverg., Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung sowie Ganzgoldschnitt. Nicht im KVK. - Hayn-Got. I, 701: "Sehr seltene cplte. Uebersetzung"; Fromm II, 6228; Walther 320 (mit ungenauer Titelaufnahme) weist auf die kollationsgleiche Ausgabe Leipzig, Wigand 1833 (dort allerdings "Der Sofa") hin. Die Leipziger Ausgabe ist im Gegensatz zu vorliegender unillustriert; womöglich hat der Verleger für diese Ausgabe ein falsches Impressum gewählt. Die 3 hier vorhandenen Tafeln zeigen in aller Deutlichkeit das Liebesspiel der Paare auf der titelgebenden Hauptfigur. Zuvor ein orientalischen Hofjunker wird dieser zur Strafe für eine Missetat in ein Sofa verwandelt, erlebt nun hautnah verschiedene intime Treffen von Liebespaaren und kann erst Erlösung finden, wenn bei einem Liebesakt Unschuld gegen Unschuld verloren geht. Allerdings währt das recht lange. - Bei dem "Sofa" handelt es sich um einen der wichtigsten erotischen Romane des 18. Jahrhunderts, da er zugleich ein Spiegelbild der Gesellschaft und ein Sittenbild seiner Zeit darstellt. "Kein Roman ist so wie C.s `Sopha` in seiner zersetzenden Lüsternheit und weiten Verbreitung so charakteristisch für die geistige Verfassung Frankreichs im 18. Jahrhundert geworden" (Bilder-Lexikon II, 264). - Die Tafeln jeweils mit sehr kleinem, schwer lesbarem Text im Stein "Paris p. degage". - Text stockfleckig.

        Letters and Petition Concerning a Convict Sent to Australia for a Petty Crime

      1835. A collection of letters and documents relating to the conviction and sentencing of John Russell to New South Wales (Australia) for a petty crime. Russell, the son of a bricklayer from Lambeth, fell into bad company and was sentenced to life for the theft of "a fruit pie and 2 dishes," which he thought was part of a practical joke involving some new acquaintances. Included are two Autographed Letters Signed from Russell to his family while held aboard the convict hulk Leviathan awaiting transport, a handwritten petition to the British Secretary of the State for the Home Department pleading for leniency, and an Enquiry for a Convict letter notifying the family of Russell's conviction and transportation on the convict ship Recovery. The documents are worn with soiling and tears at the folds but all are still clearly legible and complete, good. A sad archive, yet interesting source material that provides insight into the harsh treatment of criminals by the early 19th Century British legal system as reflected in works such as Charles Dicken's Great Expectations, in which detention on and escape from convict hulks played a major part. Further details available upon request. .

        PRINCIPLES OF GEOLOGY. Being an enquiry how far the former changes of the Earth's surface are referable to causes now in operation. In four Volumes

      John Murray. London. 1835. FOURTH EDITION. Four volumes in publishers boards. 12mo. (7.7 x 4.5 inches). Illustrated with 16 plates, views and maps, 12 of them fold-out and including four that are hand coloured. The directions to the binder leaf is at the front of volume one but as the books are still in publishers boards the plates are all bound together into the relevant volumes before the text. Several small wood engravings throughout the text. A complete set with half titles in volumes 2, 3 and 4, as called for. Volume 1. - xviii, directions to binder, 406pp. Volume 2. - iv, 465pp, [1], 4pp publishers ads. Volume 3. - iv, 455pp, [1], volume 4. - iv, 456pp. Original publishers grey paper covered boards with printed paper labels. Two of the hinges are cracked but still holding. Some loss to the paper of the spines on 3 of the volumes but the four labels are generally intact and readable. A couple of areas have the paper lifting which could be easily repaired but currently the set is entirely unsophisticated, and rare thus. Small stain to the bottom of the frontis in volume one and occasional light spotting to a few leaves but overall clean and tidy throughout. Small booksellers ticket to the front pastedown of volume one.Ink name of previous owner, the travel writer and architect Charles Kelsall, dated 1836 and with his comment ("Industry and acuteness go hand in hand, throughout this instructive work") on the front pastedown endpaper and with the Ink stamp from the Kelsall library at Morden College, a charitable institution in London set up circa 1700 to house elderly single folk, on each title page and last text leaf of each volume. While this might set alarm bells ringing, it is worth noting that since Charles Kelsall bequeathed his library to Morden College in 1857 they have sold many of his books at auction to raise money, a fact they proudly state in their own literature. Overall a nice copy of this classic geological work in the original publishers binding and with some gatherings still unopened. An uncommon survivor.

As a result of his unfortunate discovery of the non-existent Croker Mountains during his first Arctic expedition in 1818, Sir John Ross had to wait until 1829 to gain private support for a second voyage in search of the Northwest Passage. With his nephew James Clark Ross as second-in-command, Ross and his party embarked in the small paddle-steamer Victory on May 23, 1829. The survivors were rescued at Prince Regent's Inlet on August 26, 1833. Despite the loss of their ship in the ice, the explorers had achieved a great deal, including the discovery of the North Magnetic Pole by James Clark Ross, the discovery and mapping of several new regions, and the demonstration of the dietary importance of fresh meat and oil on such expeditions, despite incredible hardships, only three men died on the voyage. An important Arctic journey cont. a lot about the Eskimos, their habits, clothing, language and numerous observations on natural history, geology and meteorology. . Very Good. 1835. First Edition.

        The Crayon Miscellany No. 1 Containing A Tour On The Prairies; The Crayon Miscellany No. 2 Containing Abbotsford and Newstead Abbey and The Crayon Miscellany No. 3 Containing Legends of the Conquest of Spain (3 volumes)

      All First Editions All three volumes are in the publisher's original dark green cloth covered boards with the original, paper labels on the spines of No. 1 and No. 2. and with a meticulously accurate reproduction of the paper label on the spine of No. 3. All three are 12mos measuring 7" by 4 1/4" and are all in very good or better condition. No. 1 is a first edition, first state with the sheets bulking to 9/16" without the ads with the synopsis on page 247 showing: "binger of dawn" and the paper spine label is identified as "Label A" and, the catalog (ads at the rear) is identified as "Catalog A" per BAL 10140. It is in very good condition and contains 274 pages followed by a blank leaf and then by 24 pages of ads by the publisher. There is some scuffing to the boards and there is an early prior owner's name written in both ink and pencil on the first free end page. (The penciled signature is followed by a date of "1835". ) The corners of the boards are turned inward and there are spots of foxing throughout. Only 5, 000 copies of the first printing were produced making this title fairly uncommon. This was Irving's first book written entirely in the US following his seventeen year stay in Europe. He was worried that Tour of the Prairies was too simple and not strong enough to stand on its own as a book. In January of 1835 he hit upon the idea of publishing it as the first volume in a multi-volume series he would call The Crayon Miscellany. (Brian Jay Jones: Washington Irving An American Original) In this volume he added an opening announcement (billed as an "Advertisement") with the following statement: "The 'Crayon Miscellany' will appear in the numbers, from time to time, as circumstances may permit' and will contain scenes and sketches of life in America and Europe; together with such other themes, both real and imaginary, as may present themselves to the mind of the Author." No. 2 is a first edition in very good+ condition in the publisher's original green cloth covered boards with the original paper label on the spine with a minor, narrow abrasion approximately 1/2" long. A 12mo measuring 7" tall by 4 1/4" deep with an early (1898) prior owner's name written in ink on the second free end page. 230 pages of text followed by a blank leaf and 36 pages of ads from the publisher and one final blank leaf and the free end sheet. No. 2, was published six weeks after No. 1, on May 30, 1835. Reportedly, only 5, 000 copies were printed. The contents are "Irving's fond tribute to the homes of Walter Scott and Lord Byron." (Brian Jay Jones: Washington Irving An American Original.) It was well received by an adoring American public even winning fond praise from Edgar Allan Poe. No. 3 is also a first edition in very good condition with a prior owner's book plate on the front paste down and tape marks on the first free end page and with moderate foxing throughout the preliminaries, ads and end sheets as well as light soiling to the rear board.

Ross travelled through Lancaster Sound into Prince Regent inlet and onto Boothia Peninsula, while on the way finding remnants of Parry’s ship ‘Fury’ which had been wecked on North Somerset Island. For three consecutive winters Ross and his men were stuck in ice, but used the time wisely to learn mapping, hunting, sewing, transportation and language from the local inuit. Ross also organized lectures, lessons, and scientific inquiries, one of which discovered the North Magnetic Pole. In 1832 Ross finally abandoned the ship, and managed to live on supplies found at Parry’s wreck. A whaler rescued Ross and his crew in 1833, and remarkably, it was the same vessel which Ross had commanded on his first voyage. Additional postage may be necessary. US$2400

Very Good. Hardcover. A lovely set of the Weimar Claccisist's works. Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805) was the sole son of a military doctor. His father was deployed forhis earlychildhood, but obtained a recruiting post in Schwabisch at the conclusion of the Seven Years' War in 1763. The family settled in the neighbouring town of Lorch, where the young Friedrich recieved instruction in the classics pursuant to his parents ambition that he should become a pastor. In 1766, having not been paid for three years, Schiller's father took another posting under the Duke of Wurttemberg. Here, the boy came to the attention of the Duke and was enrolled in the military academy which bears his name (the Karrlschule Stuttgart). At theacademy Schiller was exposed to the works of Goethe and Rousseau, and enjoyed the opportunity to discuss his favoured classical works with like-minded students. He passed out as a medical doctor and obtained a regimental post, going absent without leave to attend the first proper performance of his seminal play, the Robbers. The Robbers was a smash hit-with Schiller gaining overnight notoriety and eventually being made an honourary French citizen in light of its radical sympathies. Nevertheless, he wasarrested and charged with going AWOL, and Lord Wurttemberg forbade him from publishing any further materials. Two years later, he escaped Stuttgart and eventually settled in Weimar, where he continued to publish historical works. Here we have his complete works, including the Robbers, Don Carlos, Mary Stuart, and the Wallstein Trilogy. Bound in half-calf with lovely cloth boards, these volumes are sure to impress with their broad, clear margins and broadstroke text. Condition: Bound in oldhalf morocco. A trible rubbed. Lovely bottle-green cloth boards and maroon leather. Gilt lettering and embellishment to spines. Marbled edging. Worn at corners and bottomsof boardsand along joints. Internally, very firmly bound.

Newspaper clipping pasted to rear fly leaf. Tanning and foxing, some light wear to text. A good, solid copy. In a half morocco box. The rare first edition of a classic of southern literature and manners, GEORGIA SCENES... is written in the form of a series of sketches set in frontier Georgia at the beginning of the 19th century. Although in fictional form, the book is such realistic social history that it presents one of the best pictures of life in that time and place, and straddles the line between fact and fiction. Longstreet said that his purpose was "to supply a chasm in history which has always been overlooked - the manners, customs, amusements, wit dialect, as they appear in all grades of society to an ear and eye witness of them...there is scarcely one word from the beginning to the end of the book that is not strictly GEORGIAN." The book stands at the beginning of a long line of southern humor. HOWES L448, "b." STREETER SALE 1168. DE RENNE I, p.445. GEORGIANA 28. SABIN 41936. WRIGHT I:1721. BAL 12946.

      Philadelphia: K.C. Biddle, 1835. unbound. very good. Lehman & Duval. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 21.5 x 15.5". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Pah-She-Pah-How was also known as the "Stabber" because he wanted revenge against the white man and was not to be pacified. His long hair symbolized his unsatisfied revenge. Chipping and some tape residue along edges. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.

      Hartford, Ct.: D.W. Kellogg & Co., [nd, ca. 1835].. Four lithographed sheets, 14 x 19 inches, each with an image 9 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches. Each with some wear and small tears around the edges, light creasing and foxing. Good. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet These lithographs relate the biblical story of the prodigal son, updating it to take place in America of the early 19th century. The first image is captioned "THE PRODIGAL SON RECEIVING HIS PATRIMONY. He gathered it all together and took his Journey into a far Country." It depicts the prodigal son standing at a table in his family library, as his father gives him his patrimony and his brother looks on. An interesting aspect of the image is the numerous thick folio volumes in the library's built-in bookshelves, especially three very large and thick volumes which reside in a bookcase cut deeply into the wall. The second image is captioned "THE PRODIGAL SON REVELLING WITH HARLOTS. He Wasted his Substance with Riotous Living," and depicts the prodigal and two other males enjoying food, drink, and pleasures of the flesh with three women in a bawdy house. The next image depicts "THE PRODIGAL SON IN MISERY. He would fain have filled his belly with the Husks that the swine did eat." In this scene the prodigal is seated in a barnyard, his clothes tattered, as swine root around at his feet. The final image is "THE PRODIGAL SON RETURNED TO HIS FATHER. Father I have Sinned against Heaven, and in thy Sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son." The son, in tattered clothes, is accepted back into the bosom of his family by his father, mother, and a sister, and their federal-style home is depicted in the background. Daniel Wright Kellogg and his brothers were noted lithographers in 19th-century America. They were second only to Currier & Ives in their output, and produced images in a wide variety of subject areas. They issued a noted series on Temperance issues, and Peters ascribes this "famous" set of Prodigal Son images to that group. They were "the only group of whom it is at all possible to say that they were for a time near rivals of Currier & Ives" - Peters. PETERS, AMERICA ON STONE, pp.242-47. FOWBLE 353-56.
