        The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club [Pickwick Papers]

      London: Chapman and Hall. London: Chapman and Hall. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION in book form of Dickens's first great success; one of his most beloved works. "In February 1836, just after the appearance of the two-volume Sketches by Boz, two young booksellers who were moving into publishing, Edward Chapman and William Hall, approached Dickens to write the letterpress for a series of steel-engraved plates by the popular comic artist Robert Seymour depicting the misadventures of a group of cockney sportsmen, to be published in twenty monthly numbers, each containing four plates. They offered Dickens£14 a month for the work, an 'emolument' that was, as he wrote to Catherine, 'too tempting to resist' (Letters, 1.129). He accepted the commission ... but stipulated that he should be allowed to widen the scope of the proposed subject 'with a freer range of English scenes and people'. He then, he later recalled, 'thought of Mr Pickwick, and wrote the first number' ('Preface' to the Cheap Edition of Pickwick, 1847). This appeared on 31 March 1836 ... On 20 April Seymour committed suicide but the publishers boldly decided to continue the series, despite disappointing initial sales. Seymour was replaced, after the brief trial of R. W. Buss, with a young artist, Hablot Knight Browne (Phiz), who was Dickens's main illustrator for the next twenty-three years. In recognition of the fact that Dickens was now very much the senior partner in the enterprise, the number of plates was halved, the letterpress increased from twenty-eight to thirty-two pages, and his monthly remuneration rose to £21. With the introduction of Sam Weller in the fourth number sales began to increase dramatically and soon Pickwick was the greatest publishing sensation since Byron had woken to find himself famous, as a result of the publication of the first two cantos of Childe Harold, in 1812. By the end of its run in November 1837 Dickens's monthly serial had a phenomenal circulation of nearly 40,000 and had earned the publishers £14,000..." (DNB). First edition, early issue. With additional engraved title (first state with "Veller" on sign), etched frontispiece, and 43 plates by Phiz, Buss, and R. Seymour (most in first state and including the suppressed Buss plates). First state points for text include: "hodling" for "holding" on page 260, "this friends" for "his friends" on page 400, line 21; an imperfect "F" in the word "OF" in the headline on page 432. London: Chapman and Hall, 1837. Octavo, full polished calf by Root, gilt decorated spine with leather spine, gilt ruled boards, gilt floral dentelles, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Very light wear to binding with discoloration to one spine label. Book plate on front pastedown. Very light toning to plates, text exceptionally clean. A beautiful copy.

        Chinese Missionary Pamphlet, "The Perfect Man’s Model

      Singaope, 1836. Singaope, 1836. Stab sewn 8vo. 60 pp. This pamphlet is a religious tract written by Protestant missionary Karl Gutzlaff, a fascinating character, typical of the sort of opportunist who clustered around the opium business in the old China trade. In the 1830s he traveled as a translator on a British opium trading vessel, known as a “country ship” illegally selling opium for Jardine, Matheson & Co. down the coast of China. Gutzlaff justified his complicity with the pretty rationalization that the journey would be a good opportunity to preach the gospel and distribute Chinese language religious tracts. So, you got opium and Jesus on the same spoon. His moral flaws aside, Gutzlaff was a smart and lucid observer, whose writings offer excellent detail about China and the China Trade in the days leading up to the first Opium War. In his later days he opened a school for Chinese “native missionaries,” several of whom turned out to be opium addicts using their missionary cover and funding for illicit purposes. The fraud exposed, Gutzlaff died a ruined man. Bad karma, I suppose. This tract, The Perfect Man’s Model, published in Singapore in 1836, is typical of those he distributed on his opium voyage. Fine condition in original wrappers, with hand corrections, probably by Gutzlaff or a contemporary associate, in the text.

        A form letter addressed "To the Overseers of the Parish of Mereworth, Kent" advertising cheap passages for "Families, Labourers, and Poor Persons" emigrating to Australia and the British colonies; "Shovelling out paupers"

      London: 1836 - In 19th c. England, the practice of assisted emigration of the poor was sometimes referred to as "shovelling out paupers". In 1833 the Colonial Land and Emigration Commissioners (CLEC) were set up to manage emigration to Britain's colonies. Under the plan, some emigrants could qualify for a free passage if they were under forty years of age, of good character, having been vaccinated against smallpox, capable of labor, and from occupations such as agricultural laborers, shepherds, or female domestic and farm servants. Young married couples without children were the most desired candidates. This circular was printed just one year following the enactment of a provision in which the cost of emigration would be borne by the emigrant's home parish (Section 62, 1834 Poor Law Amendment Act). The parish-funded emigration was overseen by the Poor Law Commissioners. The annual report of the Poor Law Commissioners of 1836 shows that 18 parishes in Kent participated, sending 320 emigrants at a cost of £1,823. Many emigrants went to Canada due to its proximity to Britain, but South Australia, which was designated a colony in 1836, offered a free passage until 1841. The popularity of Australia surged when the discovery of gold made the news in 1852. The printed circular with manuscript date (March 1836) and Parish name, advertising passage to North America or Australia at £3 to £4 a head for adults. The form letter begins, "Gentlemen, I beg to acquaint you, that I am ready to Contract for the Conveyance of Families, Labourers, and Poor Persons to the British Colonies in North America, Australia, and the United States, and likewise to Victual them if required, which I can do at a much less expense than having them found by the Vessel." "Our packets are Sailing from here, for Quebec, New York, Philadelphia, Boston & c. Twice every Week, during the Season." The printed address at the top "2, Upper East Smithfield, Near the London Dock Entrance, London." The circular is signed "C. Ciriackes", or Christoffer Ciriackes (1755 - 1758), who in 1828 was a clerk for Messrs. Beatson & Co., merchants and was a witness in a case before the Old Bailey; he also appears in the London Planet of September 20, 1840 as Christopher Ciriackes, provisions merchant at Devonshire Place, London Fields. However, Ciriackes had his own problems as a debtor, as he appears under the heading 'Court for Relief of Insolvent Debtors' on November 5, 1840: "Christopher Ciriackes, late of No. 4, Devonshire-place, London-fields, near the Cat and Mutton Tavern, . out of business . Provision Merchant and General Dealer". (London Gazette, 13 October 1840, p2270).8vo, printed on cream paper, folded into envelope shape and posted with rubber stamp and seal. The rubber stamp reads "Ing St. Corner Hill". Mailed March 8 and addressed to "Off of the Overseers of the Parish of Mereworth, Kent". Original folds, very faintly creased.

        La fausse industrie, morcelé, répugnante, mensongère, et l'antidote, l'industrie naturelle, combinée attrayante, véridique, donnant quadruple produit.

      Paris, Bossange 1836 - In-8. Collation : [pagination variée et très fantaisiste] Toile brune, dos orné de filets dorés. (Reliure de l'époque.) Première édition. Ces deux volume réunis sont très rares du fait qu'ils n'ont pas de tomaison et se sont trouvés dispersés. Seul le second porte à la fin la mention "fin de la 3e section et du 2e tome". C'est le dernier livre de Fourier, et le plus désordonné de ses ouvrages. A cause de cela, et de sa pagination déconcertante, il n'a pas été repris dans ses oeuvres complètes. "La doctrine est bien restée la même : ni les principes n'ont variés, ni les applications. Seules quelques théories particulières ont été modifiées, quelques adjonctions ont été faites. Par exemple la théorie de la répartition a subit des changements et reçu des améliorations ; le système de la "répartition du capital" y a été incorporé. Un nouveau projet de réalisation, un projet de phalanstère d'enfants a trouvé place dans l'exposition des voies et moyens, et y a pris une grande importance. Ces retouches n'ont pas altéré le caractère et la figure de la doctrine." (Hubert Bourgin. Fourier, p.185 - Thèse de lettres). Collation conforme à celle donnée par Del Bo, page 7.

        An critic of slavery and one of two dissenters in Dred Scott v. Sandford, Supreme Court Justice John McLean purchases a slave, whom he would soon free

      Cincinnati, Ohio: , August 16, 1836 Autograph Endorsement by John McLean, "J. Reeve / 16 Aug 1836" on the integral address leaf of an Autograph Letter Signed ìJohn Reeveî, 2p, 8" x 12", with integral address leaf, Cincinnati, August 16, 1836 to Justice John McLean, concerning his purchase of a slave named Lucinda from Mr. A. Stephens of Kentucky, as well as a good description of the burgeoning commerce and resulting prosperity in early Cincinnati.Folds, minor marginal loss from seal tear, else fine condition. Although McLean was a longtime critic of slavery and one of two dissenting justices in the Dred Scott v. Sandford decision, he did own slaves from time to time. John Reeve, an agent in Cincinnati, arranges for the purchase of a girl by the name of Lucinda. Reeve writes to McLean, "Mr. A Stephens the Gentleman from whom you purchased your Girl Lucinda, started from home on the day appointed, last week, per this City in order to Comply with his Contract, with you to execute the Bill of Sale, & Receive his money, but was taken Sick on the way Stop[p]ed at his Brotherinlaw, where he is Still confined & said to be dangerously ill his father, was here, took out the article after signing it himself & stated that his son would return it in a few days with the clothes of the Girl & Sign the release and Receive the funds. Today, his Brotherinlaw, writes me that he will not be able to come for some time, and wishes to know if he signs the paper in presence of some one or two Subscribing Witnesses in NY it will answer the same purpose..." Interestingly, McLean had purchased other slaves, but with the express intention of freeing them in the future. For example, in 1823 McLean purchased a man by the name of Thomas Hawkins with the provision he would be freed ten years hence. McLean freed Hawkins in 1831, two years before the contract was set to expire. During his first year sitting on the Supreme Court in 1817, he ruled in Ohio v. Thomas D. Carneal that a slave from Kentucky, brought into Ohio, a state where slavery was constitutionally prohibited, was free - a decision that foreshadowed his dissent in Dred Scott v. Sandford in 1857. In his 1817 opinion, McLean described slavery as "an infringement on the sacred rights of man". His strong dissenting opinion in Dred Scott is said to have provoked Chief Justice John Taney to take a more extreme position in the decision. Not only did Taney rule that Dred Scott had to be returned to his owner, he held that African Americans, whether free or enslaved, could not be American citizens and enjoyed no standing to sue in federal court.

Extremely rare.<br>Da A.W.Hauch i 1789 kom hjem fra en videnskabelige dannelsesrejse for at blive chef for den kongelige staldetat, skulle han bo i Staldmestergarden i Töjhusgade i Köbenhavn. Han indrettede pa förste sal sit fysiske kabinet med de mange instrumenter, han havde anskaffet sig pa sin rejse. Det var taenkt til egen fornöjelse og uddannelse, men blev hurtigt et tillöbsstykke, bade for <br>Köbenhavns borgere og for rejsende. I 1815 solgte Hauch instrumenterne til Frederik VI. I 1827-28 kom samlingen til Sorö Akademi som en gave fra Frederik VI. A.W. Hauchs nevö Carsten Hauch, der netop var blevet ansat som lektor i naturvidenskab ved akademiet, skulle tage imod samlingen og benytte den i undervisningen. Hauchs Physiske Cabinet fik imidlertid en blandet modtagelse, og efterhanden fik apparaterne plads rundt omkring pa lofter og pulterrum. Omkring 1900 blev der opfört en ny bygning der skulle rumme Sorö Akademis mange samlinger, herunder Hauchs instrumentsamling. Efter fa ar blev de gamle apparater igen gemt af vejen, da en ny gymnasiereform indförte obligatoriske fysikforsög, som kraevede laboratorieplads og moderne apparatur. I 1976 blev der mulighed for at flytte og opstille samlingen pa Vaenget og i 2005 kunne der abnes for en nyopstilling takket vaere stötte fra forskellige fonde og andre.<br>Hauchs Physiske Cabinet er et videnskabshistorisk museum i Sorö, som rummer fysiske instrumenter samlet af Adam Wilhelm Hauch i perioden 1790-1815. Instrumenterne omfatter omraderne: legemers almindelige egenskaber, statik og mekanik, hydrostatik og hydraulik, legemernes bestanddele, varmestoffet og lyset. <br>In 1789, when A W Hauch returned from a scientific educational journey to become head of the Royal Stables, he was to live at Staldmestergarden situated in Töjhusgade in Copenhagen. On the first floor he arranged his physics cabinet, containing all the instruments he had gathered on his journey. It was intended as being subject to his personal pleasure and further education, but the citizens of Copenhagen and travellers were drawn to it. In 1815 Hauch sold the instruments to King Frederik VI. In 1827-28 the collection was handed over to the Academy in Sorö as a gift from the King. <br>Carsten Hauch, A.W. Hauch's nephew, who had just been appointed assistant professor at the department of science at the Academy was to receive and organize the collection for educational use. However, the Cabinet of Physics was received with mixed feelings, and as time went by the instruments were placed in different box rooms. Around 1900 a new building was erected, intended to contain the various collections of the Academy, including Hauch's Cabinet. A few years later the old instruments were set aside again, because a new education reform required physics laboratories, space and modern equipment for experiments. In 1976 an opportunity to move and arrange the collection at Vaenget in Sorö arised, and in 2005 a new arrangement could be exhibited, thanks to donations from different funds.<br><br>Hauch's Physics Cabinet is a scientific museum in Sorö containing physics instruments collected by Adam Wilhelm Hauch during the period 1790 - 1815. The instruments include subjects, such as ordinary functions of the body, statics and mechanics, hydrostatics and hydraulics, elements and components of the body, heat and light..

Jahrhundert relativ frühes repräsentatives Ansichtenwerk (wenn nicht umfangmässig eines der ersten überhaupt), relativ eigenständig konzipiert nach einem kombinierten System von bewährten Kantonsbeschreibungen und neueren Reiseberichten resp. Routenbeschreibungen : "The following Work was undertaken at the Author's suggestion, founded on an opinion, that some portion of the romantic history of Switzerland, combined with pictorial illustrations of the most striking localities, would produce a work not wholly uninteresting to the public. [..] Mr. Bartlett proceeded to Switzerland in order to furnish the series ov views from nature, which he completed in the course of last year [..]. With regard to the text, the Author may be permitted to state, that it is not a compilation or mere letter-press description, composed with express reference to the engravings, but the result of experience obtained in repeated excursions - of which he has here endeavoured to communicate the substance - and intended to present a moral and political, as well as a physical picture of Switzerland. Of the twenty-two Cantons, each has been described with more or less minuteness; but, as it often happens that the most striking natural scenery is not the most celebrated in history, it has been thought necessary, at times, to dwell longer on certain localities than their merely picturesque features might seem to require; and again, to pass lightly over others where the engravings may be presumed to speak for themselves." (etc.; vol. I, p. III f.). - Die Ansichtenwerke für die Schweiz des 19. Jahrhunderts sind bestenfalls bibliographisch, jedoch nicht monographisch oder gar systematisch erfasst, weshalb es nebst Lonchamp, der nur die 'ecrivains et artistes suisses' berücksichtigt und Engelmann (nur ca. 1750-1856 'in Deutschland', d.h. wohl auch Österreich und Schweiz, erschienene Titel u. Karten), kein standardmässiges Referenzwerk für die verschiedenen Ausgaben mit ihren Autoren und Illustratoren, oder gar unter Berücksichtigung der inhaltlichen Konzepte gibt. -- NETTOGEWICHT / NET WEIGHT 2.7 kg

        Edle Ruhe

      . Bleistift auf Papier, signiert und datiert unten rechts: "F. Ruscheweyh, 1ter September 1836"; 20,5 x 32,5 cm. Ruhig steht ein Pferd angebunden an einen Pflock. Wenige Striche deuten den kahlen Erdboden an, nur um den Pflock sprießen einzelne Grashalme, ein Stein liegt davor. Das Pferd schaut nach links, mit einem Gurt ist eine Decke auf seinem Rücken befestigt. Allein die leicht versetzten Hinterläufe bringen Bewegung in die ruhige Szene. Das auf dem Pflock abgelegte Striegelwerkzeug erklärt die ergebene Haltung des Pferdes, es wurde gerade gestriegelt. Geordnet liegt die Mähne über dem Hals und zwischen den aufmerksam aufgestellten Ohren, geordnet sind auch die langen Haare des Schweifes. In enger Schraffur arbeitet die Binnenzeichnung die Muskulatur des Tieres heraus. Ein starkes Licht-Schatten-Spiel akzentuiert den Faltenwurf der Decke, detailliert sind die Nüstern und das Auge erfaßt. Besonders naturalistisch wirkt der Pflock durch die Astlöcher. Ferndinand Ruscheweyh, geboren 1785 in Neustrelitz und dort 1846 verstorben, studierte in Berlin und Wien. 1808 ging er nach Rom, wo er sich den Nazarenern anschloß und bis 1832 lebte. Finanziell unterstützt von Wilhelm und Caroline von Humboldt, wurde Ruscheweyh in Rom zu einem der führenden Vertreter des nazarenischen Reproduktionsstichs. Er stach vor allem nach Raffael, Michelangelo, Domenichino, Giulio Romano und Rubens aber auch nach seinen Zeitgenossen Asmus Jacob Carstens, Johann Friedrich Overbeck und Franz Pforr. Seine Stiche nach Zeichnungen von Peter von Cornelius zu Goethes Faust, 1816 erschienen, verhalfen ihm, seinen Ruhm als hervorragender Graphiker zu begründen. Unsere Zeichnung vereint in der präzisen Feinheit der Linie und der graphischen Strenge der Darstellung die Ideale, denen Ruscheweyh sein hohes Ansehen zu verdanken hat.
