        L'ingénieux hidalgo Don Quichotte de la Manche

      first edition translated by Louis Viardot and illustrated by Tony Johannot First printing. Two headpieces printed on China, two engraved title pages and 800 large thumbnails in-text. Our copy contains very rare folding map travel Don Quixote, absent from most books, since pulled apart and unjoined.As so often, the second volume of 1840. This feature is fairly common effect editing, even if we have difficulty understanding how the editor was able to mix volumes of the 1836 edition that of 1840, at least the 2 prints were established at the same time, which is more likely (it would therefore be the same draw, but with a relay title page).Bound in half red vintage shagreen. Back with false nerves decorated with fat and lean nets, wheels and tail head. Title and volume number gilded. gilt edges. Paper rather fine overall, with a few scattered spots in the margins or on some sheets. Heads, corners, edges and flat with traces of friction. Nice copy.illustrated famous romantic; one of the best productions of Johannot, with travel wherever you please and Furioso. Johannot ran less than is Grandville, probably because it is typically more romantic in the sense of Hugo, both soft and sentimental and whimsical and grotesque morbid up. There is more mystery and terror in him than in his sidekick."A very beautiful illustrated books of the nineteenth" Vicar. Dubochet et Cie Paris 1836 In-8 (17,5x25,7cm) 744pp. et 758pp. relié

        1] View in the Colosseum Regents Park London, Summer Fashions for 1836; [2] View, Windsor Castle, Summer Fashions for 1841.

      B. Read, 12 Hart St. Bloomsbury Sq., & Broad Way New York America, 1836 and 1841., London, - A dedicated follower of fashion Two engravings with aquatint and original hand colour, large closed tear, skilfully repaired. Benjamin Read's Regency fashion prints were the most successful advertising of their day. Read was a tailor by profession, but realised the potential for producing high quality prints of his wares. Ralph Hyde suggests that Read was inspired originally by the 'Monstrosities' of George Cruikshank, the satirist, who would produce an annual print of the worst offenders against fashion and the latest ridiculous trends. Read initially employed Cruikshank's younger brother, Robert, but by the time these examples were produced his name had disappeared from the prints. They were particularly effective not only because of their distinctive style and elegant colour, but also because they showed Read's clothes on fashionable people in fashionable surroundings. The Colosseum in Regent's Park, for example, was a temporary structure housing amongst other things an enormous panoramic painting of London, a popular attraction. They allowed the viewer to imagine themselves not only in the clothes but also in the milieu. As he sold mainly menswear, which was less subject to change, Read would issue only two prints a year, for summer and winter fashions. They were so well-known that they soon had imitators, and Read even offered a service to improve other tailors' fashion plates before publication. Image: [1] 396 by 569mm (15.5 by 22.5 inches). [2] 410 by 580mm (16 by 23 inches). Sheet: each 500 by 670mm (19.75 by 26.5 inches).

Marston p. 218."The First Nicolas Edition".Hilsener på tittelbladets verso i bind I. Ex libris. "This edition was edited by Sir Harris Nicolas, and it has been the occasion for much extravagant admiration. The author of the Grolier Club check list is moved to the extent of prophecy that "No finer edition of the Complete Angler will ever be published". Like the Major edition of 1823, it is conspicuous for its illustrations, for Pickering, like Major, used some of the most prominent artists of the time." (Oliver)."In 1836, we do obeisance to Pickering's third edition, in which Waltons simple work puts on the purple of an unaccustomed sovereignty, and is scarcely to be recognised in its new and splendid investiture" (Westwood)."This superb edition contains the variations of all the first five editions, voluminous notes, with original and elaborate memoirs of Walton and Cotton, presenting many new facts. All the illustrations, with the exception of Cotton's Fishing House which is on wood, are engraved on copper or steel". (Westwood & Satchell)."But Pickering is not represented alone by the smallest Walton in existence. He gave us also in some respects the finest and most valuable, that of 1836 - the "result of seven years' continuous labour and of much patient research and fostering care on the part of its publisher". (Marston).

        The English bijou almanac for 1837.

      A delightful contradiction: a "practical" almanac, in a wildly impractical, less than thumbnail-size presentation. In addition to its calendrical information, this miniature gem of a volume features seven engraved portraits, each of which is accompanied by poetry from Letitia Elizabeth Landon ("L.E.L."). => At the back are four pages of sheet music -- surely impossible to play from! -- for the Rondo from Balfe's "Maid of Artois." The book's extreme tininess led one contemporary reviewer to conclude that it had been provided by "the Bookseller to all the faeries" (Gentleman's Magazine, Feb. 1837). This is a copy of the second English Bijou Almanac. Schloss's series of miniature almanacs, often given as => gift books, began with the one for 1836 (published in 1835) and ended with that for 1843. Those for 1836-38 did not bear Schloss's name in the title, that was added beginning with the almanac for 1839. "Schloss engaged Benjamin Reese Davies, a specialist in engraved script . . . to engrave the . . . series. His skill and consistency are apparent in both the text and portraits on steel plates" (Bromer & Edison, p. 95). Once the engraving was accomplished the work was transferred to a lithographic stone for actual printing, the whole process being called "transfer lithography" (Bain, p. 8) Binding: Orchid-colored paper, wrappers with gilt-stamped lyre and wreath motif, all edges gilt. Volume housed in a velvet- and silk-lined tan morocco clamshell case with "Bijou" gilt-stamped on its front within a strapwork frame; case with a hook and eye closing mechanism, still intact and working.

        The Representative of the 3d Brigade / or / A Jackass in a Lion's Skin. / [short ornamental rule] / Tune — "Paddy's Wedding." / [followed by stanzas of lyrics interspersed with comments on American military interests, especially of General Jessup in Florida fighting the Seminoles]

      Hartford, CT, 1836. Printed broadside, 11 x 8 1/2 inches, the head in two type styles, one a bold italic. A satirical piece written at the expense of a thinly disguised Connecticut militia officer, portrayed here as a dandy and a dilettante, thinking he might be called to Florida to replace an unsuccessful Jessup and rise to high office when he's unable to make his way through a local society ball. The subtitle is taken from an Aesop fable, "Ass in the Lion's Skin" (i.e., fine clothes may disguise, but silly words will disclose a fool). Not in American Imprints. Not recorded on OCLC. Central vertical fold rumpled (with a small hole affecting several letters, repaired on verso), foxed; still a very good copy of a rare broadside. (#5040).

        The Thistle or Anglo-Caledonian Journal

      London: Francis Baisler. 1836. 8vo., iv + 484pp., with a 'withdrawn' rubber stamp of the Church of Scotland on general title-page, contemporary half calf, label lettered in gilt on spine, spine and corners worn and upper joint split, but text in good, unmarked, state of preservation. Complete and all published (being issue no.1 for January 1836 - issue no.12 for December 1836). Probably rare, COPAC locating complete copies only at NLS + Bodleian + Aberdeen. Not listed by Wiener (Unstamped British periodicals 1830-1836>). A London publication, this seems to have been aimed principally at the ex-pat Scots living in England. ('They now commit this first flowering of The Thistle> to the indulgent consideration of their countrymen in England .....'. (Prefatory address, p.2). The journal itself is a typical pot-pourri of articles, letters to the editor, news pieces, and so forth. These include an article by Chalmers on parochial destitution in Scotland, various articles on schools, university education, Church of Scotland's missionary work, Highland emigrants, the northern whale fishery, and several pieces on the role of the Church of Scotland in England. There is also some poetry. In his final Editorial Envoy,> the editor explains to the reader why the journal was ceasing publication. It would be replaced by The Scottish Presbyterian Record; or, Anglo-Caledonian Journal> which would be 'less of the world, and more of the gospel, than the Thistle'.

Offprint from: Transactions of the American Philosophical Society. 1841. 5 pp. Folding table and map. -- "Remarks on the Tornado which Visited New-Brunswich in the State of New Jersey, June 19, 1836, with a Plan and Schedule of the Prostrations observed on a Section of its Track." 12, [4] pp. Map in text. -- "Reply to Dr. Hare's Objections to the Whirlwind Theory of Storms."

Offprint from: American Journal of Science and Arts. Vol. XLIII, no. 2. Paged [37]-65. Diagrams in text.

Offprint from: American Journal of Science and Arts. Vol. XXXIII, no. 2. [New Haven, Ct: Maltby, Herrick and Noyes, 1838]. 23 pp. Plum 40. -- "On the Couses of Hurricans; with notices of the Tyfoons of the China Sea, and other Storms." Offprint from: American Journal of Science and Arts. Vol. XXXV, no. 2. 23 pp. One marginal correction possibly in Redfield's hand. -- "Whirlwinds Excited by Fire, with Further Notices of the Tyfoons of the China Sea." Offprint from: American Journal of Science and Arts. Vol. 36, No. 21. General title to "Some account of Vilent Columnar Whirlwinds." 14 pp. -- "On the Gales and Hurricans of the Western Atlantic." Offprint from: U.S. Naval Magazine. Engraved folding map. 20 pp. -- "Remarks on the Prevailing Storms of the Atlantic Coast, of the North American States." Offprint from: American Journal of Science and Arts. Vol. XX, no. 1. Engraved folding map. 36 pp. Inscribed by Redfield at top of title: "1930-31 / Needs some revision / W.C.R." Bound in modern red morocco-backed marbled boards, gilt-lettered and -ruled on spine. Amidst these ten papers by renowned meteorologist William Charles Redfield (1789-1857) is his pioneering paper on the first expedition to Mount Marcy in 1837, of which he was a part. He was the first to guess that Marcy was the highest of the Adirondack mountains, and therefore the tallest in New York State. Redfield was not officially connected to the Natural History Survey, but had been invited by Ebenezer Emmons to participate in field explorations. Redfield's account is far more detailed than Emmons', providing observations on discoveries made on the journey. This is a cornerstone work in early Adirondack exploration, and though encountered somewhat frequently in the bound volume of the American Journal of Science and Arts, it is scarce in the offprint issue. The remaining papers in the volume deal with Redfield's major contribution to meteorology: his observations of the directionality of winds in hurricanes.
