        Sketches by "Boz," illustrative of every-day life, and every day people

      London: John Macrone,, 1836 & 1837. In two volumes. Illustrations by George Cruikshank. [… The second series. Complete in one volume.] Together 2 works in 3 volumes. First series: original dark green regular-patterned straight-grain morocco cloth, spines blocked and lettered in gilt. Second series: original rose-pink morocco cloth, sides blocked in blind with a central wreath, spine blocked in blind with a circular pattern, lettered and decorated in gilt over a panel of cloth stained black, yellow endpapers. Individually housed in matching green half morocco book-form slipcases, with chemises. First series with a little unobtrusive cloth repair to joints, front board of vol. I slightly cockled, small split to cloth at centre of rear joint of vol. II, front free endpaper in vol. I beginning to separate from following leaf; second series neatly rebacked with original spine laid down with loss of lower lettering panel, spine a little faded, inner hinges cracked but holding firm. Together, very occasional light spotting but generally clean, the plates with slight oxidisation as usual: a very good set. First series: frontispieces and 16 engraved plates. Second series: etched frontispiece, extra engraved title, and 8 engraved plates. With 2 plates by Cruikshank for later editions loosely inserted. Book plates of Frederic S. Clarke, the Dickens collector Robert Lloyd Henderson (plate dated 1932), and Alain de Suzannet (1882?-1950). First editions of Dickens's first books, both the first and second series, from the collection of Comte Alain de Suzannet, one of the finest ever assembled (sold at auction, Sotheby's, 1971, lot 5), having previously been in two similarly celebrated collections. Eckel's contention that there were two issues of the second series, distinguished by the presence or lack of the list of illustrations (present here) has lost force over the years. Sadleir was puzzled by it, and Smith, having scrutinized 18 copies, finds that no consistent states of binding or printing can be associated with early or late copies. Smith notes that Macrone was anxious to print it in time for Christmas and hurried it through the presses, leaving many mistakes uncorrected.

        Rheinische Geschichten und Sagen. Erster ( - Vierter und letzter) Band. In vier Bänden. Mit elf mehrfach gefalteten Stammtafeln .

      Frankfurt am Main, in der Hermannschen Buchhandlung, 1816 (Bd. 4:) Siegmund Schmerber 1836. - Schwarze Halblederbände mit Rückenvergoldung, leicht berieben. Erste Ausgabe. Goedeke V,376,29,3 (3 Bände) und VII,240,11,5. Nur vereinzelt etwas fleckig, einige Falttabellen ragen schmal über den Schnitt hinaus und sind ebd. etwas angestaubt und rissig. Vollständig mit dem vierten Band, der vermutlich auch separat erschien, ist das Werk sehr selten, besonders in so guten Zustand. Der Titel ist etwas irreführend. Denn tatsächlich handelt es sich um eine Geschichte der mittelrheinischen Gegenden von der germanischen Vorzeit bis in die Gegenwart, von Vogt, dem Lehrer Metternichs, zur Stärkung der rheinischen, antipreußischen Position gedacht. Bd. 4 hat einen zweiten Titel: Geschichte des Verfalls und Untergang der Rheinischen Staaten des alten deutschen Reichs. (Ohne Ort 1833). - Der Historiker Nicolaus (Niclas) Vogt (1756-1836) wurde in der anregenden und freisinnigen Atmosphäre der Stadt Mainz ausgebildet und früh Professor der Geschichte an der dortigen Universität. "Zu seinen Hörern zählte auch Metternich, der ihm zeitlebens freundschaftlich verbunden blieb. Während der französischen Besatzung folgte Vogt dem kurfürstlichen Hof nach Aschaffenburg, war dort Schulinspektor und nach Heinses Tod Bibliothekar. Vogts Werk stand von Anbeginn unter dem Eindruck des Untergangs der alten europäischen Staatenordnung, als deren herausragende Zerstörer er Friedrich II. und später Napoleon ansah. In seinen Schriften begründete er staatsrechtlich, philosophisch und historisch ganz im Geiste der Restauration die Notwendigkeit eines rheinischen Staatenbundes als Gegengewicht zu Preußen, Österreich und dem nachrevolutionären Frankreich. Dieser Tendenz ist letztlich auch seine Sammlung 'Rheinische Geschichten und Sagen' verpflichtet." (Killy XII,52f.). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Sherwood, Gilbert, London 1836 - Hodgkin, Thomas (1798-1866). Lectures on the morbid anatomy of the serous and mucous membranes. Vol. I [Vol. II, part 1]. All published. ix, [11], 402; viii, 541pp. London: Sherwood, Gilbert & Piper [Vol. I]; Simpkin, Marshall [Vol. II, pt. 1], 1836-40. 212 x 132 mm. Half calf, cloth boards, circa 1840. Rebacked, retaining original labels. Slight rubbing at corners. Tear in second leaf of Vol. II repaired. McGill College Medical Faculty Library inscription and stamp on titles. Very good copy.First Edition. Hodgkin was one of the distinguished pathologists connected with Guy's Hospital, where he served as demonstrator of morbid anatomy and curator of the museum from 1825-37. He was the first in England to pursue the lead of Bichat by discussing morbid anatomy from the standpoint of changes in tissue, and to give regular lecture courses in morbid anatomy. His Lectures on the Morbid Anatomy of the Serous and Mucous Membranes stimulated the study of tissue pathology in England. Hodgkin published only a few medical works during his brief medical career, which ended in 1837 after he failed to receive a promotion at Guy's Hospital; for the rest of his life he devoted himself to philanthropic pursuits. He is best known for his classic description of Hodgkin's lymphoma, contained in his paper "On some morbid appearances of the absorbent glands and spleen" (Medico-Chirurgical Transactions 17 [1832]: 68-114).

      San Antonio de Bexar. June 25, 1836.. [4]pp. Typical mailing folds. Very good. With the original mailing envelope. An interesting manuscript account of vigilante activity, and life in general in San Antonio two months after the Battle of San Jacinto, which brought victory and independence to the Republic of Texas. The first major campaign of the Texas Revolution took place at San Antonio de Bexar in October-December 1835, the only major Texian success other than San Jacinto. The Alamo occurred just four months prior to this. ^William Robertson writes to his brother that he still awaits the return of Capt. Pope from whom he expects to receive back pay so that he can send money to pay off a note. He proceeds then to relate the post-war excitement in San Antonio: ^"I suppose you have seen some accounts in the papers of the fights & disturbances in this city, during the past few weeks. Some short time before I came here there was an organized body of horse thieves & cattle thieves extending over a large portion of west Texas, & having San Antonio for their headquarters. They were carrying their depredations & oftentimes murders to such an extent & with such boldness, as could be endured no longer. A vigilance committee was organized in this place, who took the matter in hand. They published a list of the names of all who were known or strongly suspected of being connected with the thieves or gamblers warning them to leave instantly, and then kept constant patrols out who caught all they could find & hung them in the neighborhood of the city. In this way some 8 or 10 have been hung. Some few days before my arrival there was a desperate fight here with some four or five gamblers & the committee, in which three or four men were killed & several wounded. Since that time the city has been more quiet than for a long time previous & there is now probably as little fighting or gambling carried on here as in most western cities. Indeed it is quite a dull place at present." ^Robertson goes on to talk about the current devastating drought, observing that the "cotton in most places is past redemption." Then he mentions that he has made some acquaintances and observed some "very good Presbyterian well as Methodist & Catholic." He closes the letter by assuring those back home that he is in good health. Robertson is believed to have come to Texas from Amherst County, Virginia to participate in the Texas Revolution. An outstanding letter with great San Antonio content during the Republic period. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed to "John B Robertson" in Amherst County, Virginia, with a three-cent stamp and postmarked from San Antonio.

      Lyon and Paris, Rusand et Poussielgue-Rusand, 1836.. 8°. XXXIX, 446, 496, 483 pages and some 700 additional leaves with manuscripts! Contemporary half-cloth. Latin and French parallel text throughout with notes. - This is a special working copy, withdrawn from the library of the Monumenta Germaniae. It belonged to the scholar Christian Lütjohann (1846-1884) who worked at that institution on Sidonius and prepared an edition of the "Epistulae et carmina" but died before he could publish. It was then edited from his notes by Theodor Mommsen in 1887. - The 3 volumnes here have white leaves bound between the Latin and the French text and the Latin text is very amply commentated and emendated by Lütjohann! There are thousands of comments and corrections that led to the edition published after Lütjohann s death by Mommsen, but many of his comments and alternatives will not have found their way into the printed edition. These volumes with their manuscript notes in different colours are an impressive document of 19th century scholarship of textual criticism. - Small old stamps, spines with labels, bindings rubbed and bumped, traces of use, but altogether well preserved. - Unique annotated copy.

        Mickie. Lake Macquarie. Newcastle Tribe

      Sydney: J.G. Austin, n.d. but circa, 1836. Original lithograph, 190 x 255 mm. (paper size); a small amount of aging otherwise very good, signed in the plate lower left WHF. Mickie, as is stated in the caption, was from Lake Macquarie, NSW, but otherwise very little appears to be recorded about him. The military-style short coat he is wearing may suggest that he has been living in contact with soldiers: it is interesting to note that another man in the same series by William Fernyhough and from the same tribe, Boardman, is wearing a very similar outfit. The original pencil sketch for this engraving is part of an album now held in the Mitchell Library.The series of Aboriginal portraits were produced by Austin and Fernyhough from their studio in Bridge Street, Sydney. Fernyhough (1809-1849), the driving force in the production of these portraits, arrived in the colony in 1836, trained as a surveyor and draughtsman, and was able to contribute enormously to the fledgling printing industry. He was the first to use Zincography, and in September 1836 the Sydney Times stated 'It would have been next to an impossibility before the arrival of Mr. Fernyhough in the Colony a few months ago, to have obtained such excellent lithographic and zincographic prints, as may now be used to embellish our Colonial literature.'This striking image of Mickie from Newcastle is from the very rare series Profile Portraits of the Aborigines issued in Sydney in 1836.

Franz II Knebel, verwandt mit Franz I Knebel (1789-1822) und Franz Kaisermann (1765-1833), kam bereits als dreizehnjähriger Knabe zu seinem Onkel nach Rom und wurde von Kaisermann ausgebildet und auch adoptiert und sie lebten gemeinsam in einer Wohnung an dem Piazza di Spagna. Kaisermann brachte dem jungen Künstler zwar sehr viel bei, unterband aber eine eigenständige künstlerische Entwicklung. Deshalb trennten sich beide 1829 im Streit und Knebel nahm sich in der Via Lucina 26 in Rom eine eigene Wohnung. Im April 1835 stellte er in seinem Atelier an dem Piazza di Spagna 31, wohin er mit seiner Familie nach dem Tode Kaisermanns gezogen war, Zeichnungen Bartolomeo Pinellis (1781-1835) und Kaisermanns aus. Mit eigenen Arbeiten beschickte er Kunstausstellungen in Mailand (1844), Brüssel (1851) und in Rom (1856, 1858, 1865). Studienreisen führten ihn nach Olevano und mehrmals nach Neapel.

        The New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ published in 1526 being the first translation....William Tyndale

      Herbert # 1816, 1836,  8vo 8" x 5.5", FIRST EDITION, Near Fine, printed directly from Tyndale's 1526 historic printing of the New Testament- the very first time the Scriptures were ever printed in the English language :William Tyndale c.1494-1536 , "Let it not make thee despair, neither yet discourage thee, O reader, that it is forbidden thee in pain of life and goods, or that it is made breaking of the king's peace, or treason unto his highness, to read the Word of thy soul's health?"for if God be on our side, what matter maketh it who be against us, be they bishops, cardinals, popes." William Tyndale could speak seven languages and was proficient in ancient Hebrew and Greek. He was a priest whose intellectual gifts and disciplined life could have taken him a long way in the church?"had he not had one compulsion: to teach English men and women the good news of justification by faith. Tyndale had discovered this doctrine when he read Erasmus's Greek edition of the New Testament. What better way to share this message with his countrymen than to put an English version of the New Testament into their hands? This, in fact, became Tyndale's life passion, aptly summed up in the words of his mentor, Erasmus: "Christ desires his mysteries to be published abroad as widely as possible. I would that [the Gospels and the epistles of Paul] were translated into all languages, of all Christian people, and that they might be read and known." He was a native of Gloucester and began his studies at Oxford in 1510, later moving on to Cambridge. By 1523 his passion had been ignited; in that year he sought permission and funds from the bishop of London to translate the New Testament. The bishop denied his request, and further queries convinced Tyndale the project would not be welcomed anywhere in England. To find a hospitable environment, he traveled to the free cities of Europe?"Hamburg, Wittenberg, Cologne, and finally to the Lutheran city of Worms. There, in 1525, his New Testament emerged: the first translation from Greek into the English language. It was quickly smuggled into England, where it received a less-than-enthusiastic response from the authorities. King Henry VIII, Cardinal Wolsey, and Sir Thomas More, among others, were furious. It was, said More, "not worthy to be called Christ's testament, but either Tyndale's own testament or the testament of his master Antichrist." Authorities bought up copies of the translation (which, ironically, only financed Tyndale's further work) and hatched plans to silence Tyndale. Meanwhile Tyndale had moved to Antwerp, a city in which he was relatively free from both English agents and those of the Holy Roman (and Catholic) Empire. For nine years he managed with the help of friends to evade authorities, revise his New Testament, and begin translating the Old. His translations, it would turn out, became decisive in the history of the English Bible, and of the English language. Nearly a century later, when translators of the Authorized, or King James Version, debated how to translate the original languages, eight of ten times, they agreed that Tyndale had it best to begin with. During these years, Tyndale also gave himself methodically to good works because, as he said, "My part be not in Christ if mine heart be not to follow and live according as I teach." On Mondays he visited other religious refugees from England. On Saturdays he walked Antwerp's streets, seeking to minister to the poor. On Sundays he dined in merchants' homes, reading Scripture before and after dinner. The rest of the week he devoted to writing tracts and books and translating the Bible. We do not know who planned and financed the plot that ended his life (whether English or continental authorities), but we do know it was carried out by Henry Phillips, a man who had been accused of robbing his father and of gambling himself into poverty. Phillips became Tyndale's guest at meals and soon was one of the few privileged to look at Tyndale's books and papers. In May 1535, Phillips lured Tyndale away from the safety of his quarters and into the arms of soldiers. Tyndale was immediately taken to the Castle of Vilvorde, the great state prison of the Low Countries, and accused of heresy. Trials for heresy in the Netherlands were in the hands of special commissioners of the Holy Roman Empire. It took months for the law to take its course. During this time, Tyndale had many hours to reflect on his own teachings, such as this passage from one of his tracts:"Let it not make thee despair, neither yet discourage thee, O reader, that it is forbidden thee in pain of life and goods, or that it is made breaking of the king's peace, or treason unto his highness, to read the Word of thy soul's health?"for if God be on our side, what matter maketh it who be against us, be they bishops, cardinals, popes."Finally, in early August 1536, Tyndale was condemned as a heretic, degraded from the priesthood, and delivered to the secular authorities for punishment. On Friday, October 6, after local officials took their seats, Tyndale was brought to the cross in the middle of the town square and given a chance to recant. That refused, he was given a moment to pray. English historian John Foxe said he cried out, "Lord, open the King of England's eyes!"Then he was bound to the beam, and both an iron chain and a rope were put around his neck. Gunpowder was added to the brush and logs. At the signal of a local official, the executioner, standing behind Tyndale, quickly tightened the noose, strangling him. Then an official took up a lighted torch and handed it to the executioner, who then set the wood ablaze.COLLATION AND CONDITION:FRONTISPIECE, 1 page, fine copper plate engraving by N.

        Musée Royal De Naples, Peintures, Bronzes et Statues Érotiques Du Cabinet Secret Avec Leur Explication Par M.C.F

      Paris: Ledoux, 1836. Two quarto volumes in matching mid-nineteenth century full polished calf, spines gilt; the first volume comprising the Musée Royal de Naples with engraved and letterpress titles, xxx, [vi], [160] pp., sixty handcoloured engraved plates; the second volume comprising the translation followed by 71 mounted leaves from a related volume on erotic cameos (see note below); some foxing and staining, joint of one volume starting, overall good. Forbidden Pompeii. A curious and somewhat eccentric assemblage of material relating to Roman erotica. The first volume of this specially bound set comprises a generously illustrated catalogue of the secret cabinet of erotica held by the Royal Museum at Naples, featuring items salvaged from the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The second volume is an English language manuscript translation of the French text, and includes the preliminaries and 71 consecutive leaves from a small octavo illustrating gems and cameos titled Veneres uii observantur in gemmis antiquis (Leiden, circa 1810).The neat manuscript translation and special binding of these volumes reflect the considerable curiosity and diligence of their unknown owner. While the classical world abounded in sexual and phallic imagery, the intervening centuries of Christendom saw most offending material destroyed. The excavation of Pompeii and Herculaneum in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries brought forth a wealth of material that had escaped the censor's chisel. This catalogue of the Naples museum cabinet illustrates some material still confronting by modern standards - including bestiality and sadism - sure to offend the sensibilities of Victorian England.Tipped to the rear endpaper of one volume are four leaves of notes with the blind-stamp of American congressman E. Smith, titled "Illustrations of the worship of the Phallus from the plates of antiquities in Nabonidus' Egypt"

        Sketches by Boz

      London: John Macrone,, 1836. Illustrative of Every-Day Life and Every-Day People. 2 volumes, duodecimo, pp.viii + 348; [iv] + 342. Original green cloth, spines gilt, yellow coated endpapers. One with the grain horizontal the other with the grain vertical - there is no priority. Housed in a cloth solander box. Engraved frontispiece to each volume and 14 plates by George Cruikshank. Volume I: corners of 7 leaves torn none effecting the text, a few smudges here and there, plates browned and occasionally rubbed at edge, bookplate of the Peterhead Reading Society to front pastedown. Spine a little rolled, cloth a little marked and with some very minor rubbing to the tips. Volume II: exceptionally clean with only the most occasional mark to the text, ownership signature of one A.M.G. Crookshank (so near and yet so far!) to recto of frontispiece, two armorial bookplates to the front endpaper, the barest trace of rubbing to the ends of the spine but a lovely copy. Together an attractive and unsophisticated set of Dickens's first book. First edition, first printing (Whiting). With almost all the internal flaws given by Smith lacking only one which he considers universal. Dickens's landmark first book so successful that it was immediately reprinted and a second series called for. Sets of the first series in the first printing and in original cloth are far from common.

        Astoria, or Anecdotes of an Enterprise Beyond the Rocky Mountains

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea, & Blanchard, 1836. First Edition, First State. Both volumes of this two volume set are in good to very good- condition although re-backed retaining the publisher's original green-brown, patterned cloth covered boards and the gilt text stamped back strips. The original end papers were also retained. The new spine backing is in a dark green cloth which does not match the original materials but does supply each volume with added strength. (The original cloth is embossed with a floral pattern on "brown T-like cloth" as noted as "Cloth C" by Jacob Blanck in his Bibliography of American Literature.) (BAL 10148) The original cloth at the lower fore edges of the boards is rubbed through in small areas as are the upper fore edges of the boards. As is typically seen, the end papers for both volumes are foxed and there is general foxing to many of the pages throughout the text blocks. Both books are protected within two fabric covered chemises which are contained within an elegant 1/2 dark green leather and cloth covered slip case with gilt lettering on the boxed end. The boxed end is shaped as a double convex with raised spines so that it appears as two volumes with gilt text stamping in the compartments. The fold-out map of the routes of Hunt & Sturart contained in volume two is in very good condition with very slight age toning and with two short closed tears: one 1 1/2" long at the first fold and the second of 1/2" long at the edge where it is tipped-in. with only one short 1" closed tear at one of the folds and a 2" long closed tear near the edge which is tipped-into the binding. Wright Howes in his bibliography U.S.Iana (I-81) states that this is the "Classic account of the first American attempt at settlement on the Pacific coast, 1811,...including the earliest extended relation of Wilson P. Hunt's overland expedition from St. Louis to that settlement." Irving was commissioned by John Jacob Astor to write the account of his company's effort to create a settlement in what is now Oregon. (BAL 10148, Graff 2158, Sabin 35129) Reportedly only 4,000 copies of the first edition were printed. A very handsome set of a unique and scarce account of the earliest settlement of the Pacific Northwest.
