CHYZER, Cornelius and Wladyslaw KULCZYNSKI.
[4], 168, [4]; [4], 151, [1]; [4], 147-366 pp.Rare first and only edition, in Latin (with the preface to each part also in Hungarian/Magyar), of an extensive and thorough study of Hungarian spiders, with about 700 figures illustrating details of spider anatomy (mostly showing parts of the exoskeleton). It describes about 1000 spider species in XXII numbered families, with the genera numbered per family and the species per genus. The Hungarian physician Cornelis Chyzer (1836-1909) in Budapest and the Polish professor of zoology Wladyslaw Kulczynski (1854-1919) in Krakow are best known as arachnologists. Their present collaborative book was their great masterpiece. They note in the title and preface that many of the species had been collected and described by the Belgian painter and arachnologist Léon Becker (1826-1909), who published his account of Belgian species in four volumes, 1882-1896. With a presentation inscription from the author Cornelis Chyzer to the German Arachnologist Ludwig Koch (1825-1908) and library stamps. Paper browned as usual. Water stains in the plates to vol. I and in the foot margin of the plates to part 1 of volume II, those to part 2 of vol. II slightly browned. Otherwise in good condition.

Lenormant, Charles, et al.
1836. Volume XVII of the Trésor de numismatique et de glyptique ... gravé par les procédés de M. Achille Collas. Paris: Chez Rittner et Goupil, 1836. Folio [43.5 by 30.5 cm], somewhat later maroon half morocco, gilt; spine lettered in gilt; top page edges gilt. (4), 132 pages; 96 plates of medals, exceptionally engraved using Collas's pantographic ruling process. Binding a bit worn at extremities, but sound; leaves with the usual foxing; plates somewhat foxed, but most particularly at margins. Very good or better. The French Revolution volume, from the extraordinary 20-volume Trésor de numismatique et de glyptique, the outstanding 19th-century contribution to medallic and glyptic art. David Block discussed this work in the Summer 1985 issue of The Asylum: "The great illustrated catalogs of Napoleonic medals are part of Charles Lenormant's Trésor de numismatique et de glyptique... The volume containing medals of the French revolution first appeared in 1836, followed several years later by a volume covering the First Empire ... the editors published for the first time many medals from imperial times." The text in this volume was written by George-Julien Fellmann, under the general editorship of Lenormant. The massive, extensively illustrated Trésor has never been approached in concept or scope. The plates utilized a new process, perfected in France by Achille Collas. They were engraved with a pantographic ruling machine and, in addition to being of great visual appeal, the illustrations were the most accurate ever achieved. This technical innovation, widely heralded at the ti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dickens, Charles; Cruikshank, George (illustrator)
London: John Macrone, 1836. Very good plus.. First edition of the first printed book of Charles Dickens. Charles Dickens first came to the attention of publisher John Macrone through a series of piquant "sketches" on London life the young author had published in THE MONTHLY MAGAZINE. Macrone formed the idea of pairing the clever scenes with illustrations by Cruikshank, with the result that this set appeared when Dickens was only 24. The idea was considered unconventional and something of a gamble, given the unknown author but, as Robert L. Patten observed, "the gamble had paid off handsomely." Even while sales struggled for his follow-up, PICKWICK PAPERS, Dickens maintained the momentum so necessary in an early career through the enthusiastic reception of this first book.

Charles Dickens
New York: Carey, Lea, & Blanchard, 1836. WATKINS TOTTLE and Other Sketches Illustrative of Every-day Life and Every-day People by Boz From 1836, the very first book-length appearance in America of Charles Dickens, a 2-volume collection of short, mostly comic pieces which he wrote for various British periodicals under the pen name "Boz". The books were first published in London under the title Sketches by Boz, Illustrative of Every-day Life and Every-day People, in February of 1836. This republication by New York publisher Carey, Lea & Blanchard is actually a pirate edition, published before the establishment of international copyright laws. Any publication information on this set is difficult to find, and the exact month of publication is unclear; however, this edition had been in circulation long enough to have a magazine review printed in the June, 1836 edition of the Southern Literary Messenger. The author of that review was none other than Edgar Allan Poe, an early champion of Dickens' work. The London Sketches by Boz lists for upwards of $20,000, and it is considerably more common than Watkins Tottle, of which reportedly only 1250 two-volume sets were ever printed. There are no other copies of Watkins Tottle currently for sale on line, and I find no recent auction record. This set is bound in leather. These could be the original covers, as the endpapers perfectly match the rest of the text, but it is possible that the books were originally bound in paper, later rebound in leather. The labels on the spines are clearly from a later date. The covers show fairly minor gene … [Click Below for Full Description]

[4], 168, [4]; [4], 151, [1]; [4], 147-366 pp.Rare first and only edition, in Latin (with the preface to each part also in Hungarian/Magyar), of an extensive and thorough study of Hungarian spiders, with about 700 figures illustrating details of spider anatomy (mostly showing parts of the exoskeleton). It describes about 1000 spider species in XXII numbered families, with the genera numbered per family and the species per genus. The Hungarian physician Cornelis Chyzer (1836-1909) in Budapest and the Polish professor of zoology Wladyslaw Kulczynski (1854-1919) in Krakow are best known as arachnologists. Their present collaborative book was their great masterpiece. They note in the title and preface that many of the species had been collected and described by the Belgian painter and arachnologist Léon Becker (1826-1909), who published his account of Belgian species in four volumes, 1882-1896. With a presentation inscription from the author Cornelis Chyzer to the German Arachnologist Ludwig Koch (1825-1908) and library stamps. Paper browned as usual. Water stains in the plates to vol. I and in the foot margin of the plates to part 1 of volume II, those to part 2 of vol. II slightly browned. Otherwise in good condition.

Moderate scuffing, rubbing, and edge wear to boards, spine a bit scuffed. Minor scattered foxing. Very short closed tear to map at binding stub. Overall very good. Styled "Seventh Edition. Greatly improved and enlarged" on the titlepage, after the first edition of 1832, originally published as THE TRAVELLER'S DIRECTORY.... A pleasing guide, providing general information for the prospective western emigrant, including steamboat and railroad routes, and descriptions of towns in western New York, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, and Michigan. As the guide progressed, most editions were expanded as new information became known to the compiler; sometime, though, as is the case with the fifth, sixth, and seventh editions, they are the same length, as copies sold quickly during an age of increased interest in the western portions of the country. In addition to the states mentioned in the title, there are short chapters on Missouri and Arkansas, as well as a page on the "Regions which lie North of Illinois and Missouri, and West of Missouri and Arkansas." This is one of the earliest editions to contain a map, which shows the western frontier of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan in great detail. HOWES S927. SABIN 91141.

Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled paper to the boards. Externally, smart. Light rubbing to the boards. A little fading to the spine. Minor bumping to the extremities. Label to the front pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are lightly age-toned with some spots. Overall Condition: Very Good.

[Steele, Oliver G.]
Buffalo: Published by Oliver G. Steele, 1836. 108pp. plus handcolored folding frontispiece map. 12mo. Original half calf and printed paper boards. Moderate scuffing, rubbing, and edge wear to boards, spine a bit scuffed. Minor scattered foxing. Very short closed tear to map at binding stub. Overall very good. Styled "Seventh Edition. Greatly improved and enlarged" on the titlepage, after the first edition of 1832, originally published as THE TRAVELLER'S DIRECTORY.... A pleasing guide, providing general information for the prospective western emigrant, including steamboat and railroad routes, and descriptions of towns in western New York, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, and Michigan. As the guide progressed, most editions were expanded as new information became known to the compiler; sometime, though, as is the case with the fifth, sixth, and seventh editions, they are the same length, as copies sold quickly during an age of increased interest in the western portions of the country. In addition to the states mentioned in the title, there are short chapters on Missouri and Arkansas, as well as a page on the "Regions which lie North of Illinois and Missouri, and West of Missouri and Arkansas." This is one of the earliest editions to contain a map, which shows the western frontier of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan in great detail. HOWES S927. SABIN 91141. SEVERANCE, BUFFALO IMPRINTS, pp.577-78. BUCK 253 (other eds).
