Charles Richardson
London: William Pickering, 1836. In two volumes complete. First edition. Second in importance in early English dictionaries only to Johnson. Charles Richardson (1775 - 1865) was an English teacher, lexicographer, and linguist. A philologist of the school of John Horne Tooke. In 1815 he published Illustrations to English Philology, consisting of a critical examination of Samuel Johnson's A Dictionary of the English Language and a reply to Dugald Stewart's criticism of Horne Tooke's Diversions of Purley. In 1818 the opening portions of an English lexicon, by Richardson, appeared in the Encyclopædia Metropolitana. In 1834 he issued the prospectus of a New English Dictionary, and the work itself was published by Pickering in parts between January 1835 and the spring of 1837. The dictionary is a republication of the lexicon, with improvements and additions. Richardson's principle was to rely on etymology. Despite many technical failings the work was commended by the Quarterly Magazine and the Gentleman's Magazine.

William Beattie
George Virtue, 1836. First editions. Illustrated throughout with one hundred and six plates taken from views by W. H. Bartlett, including one folding map. William Henry Bartlett (March 26, 1809 - September 13, 1854) was a British artist, best known for his numerous steel engravings. Bartletts primary concern was to render "lively impressions of actual sights", as he wrote in the preface to The Nile Boat (London, 1849). Many views contain some ruin or element of the past including many scenes of churches, abbeys, cathedrals and castles, and Nathaniel Parker Willis described Bartlett's talent thus: "Bartlett could select his point of view so as to bring prominently into his sketch the castle or the cathedral, which history or antiquity had allowed". Complete in two volumes. CONDITION In half-calf bindings. Externally rubbed, with wear to the extremities and discolouration to the boards. Slight loss to spine labels. Internally firmly bound. Pages are bright, with scattered foxing throughout. Overall Condition: Good Only.

READ, B[enjamin]
London,: B. Read, 12 Hart St. Bloomsbury Sq., & Broad Way New York America, 1836 and 1841. DescriptionTwo engravings with aquatint and original hand colour, large closed tear, skilfully repaired. NotesBenjamin Reads 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 Cruikshanks 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 Reads clothes on fashionable people in fashionable surroundings. The Colosseum in Regents 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.

Joseph Hunt
Normal patina from age to the book. Cover is worn as you would expect. No missing or detached pages. No tears . Some rough edge wear on a few pages. Some staining / yellowing to pages. Some bleeding pen ink to the other facing page, which is normal for a handwritten manuscript book. Superb artwork as you can see in the photos ! entire book is by hand . Even the elaborate borders are all by hand. Book starts in 1836 and is finished in 1845. All completely by the hand of Joseph Hunt of Dublin. Some of the photos I put in the description may be slightly blurry, and this is due to the camera shaking while I took the photos. All of what is in this book is very clear and beautiful in person. There are 299 pages, so many photos are not in this description. I put in most of the watercolors and artwork, but many of the handwritten text with the elaborate hand drawn borders are not in these photos, so please keep that in mind. In general the page before every drawing, there is handwritten text. You are purchasing on a Very unique one of a kind prayer book by Joseph Hunt of Dublin. There are 299 pages and the book measures about 9 x 11 inches. There is a table of contents in the rear. The entire book is handwritten and painted by Joseph Hunt. Even the elaborate borders are all done by hand. There are miniatures as well as beautiful calligraphy as you can see. This book may have been done by the famous Joseph Hunt who made playing cards in the 19th century, I am not certain. If you look at some of the elaborate borders in this book, they do have the appearance of the back of a playing … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kjöbenhavn (Copenhagen), 1836. 8vo. Nice contemporary half calf with gilt red leather title-label and gilt spine. Vellum corners to boards. Ex libris to inside of front board. A nice and clean copy. Illustrated. (4), 100 pp. ¶ Scarce first edition of this milestone publication, which laid the foundation of modern archaeology and transformed it into an exact science. With this seminal publication, Thomsen was the first to establish an evidence-based division of prehistory into discrete periods, and with it he became the originator of the three-age system (the division into Stone Age - Bronze Age - Iron Age), which is "the basic chronology that now underpins the archaeology of most of the Old World" (Rowley-Conwy: From Genesis to Prehistory, p.1). This foundational work altered our understanding of our world and our place in it and contains the first use of "culture" in an archaeological context."Christian Jürgensen Thomsen, (born Dec. 29, 1788, Copenhagen, Den.-died May 21, 1865, Copenhagen), Danish archaeologist who deserves major credit for developing the three-part system of prehistory, naming the Stone, Bronze, and Iron ages for the successive stages of man's technological development in Europe. His tripartite scheme brought the first semblance of order to prehistory and formed the basis for chronological schemes developed for other areas of the globe by succeeding generations of archaeologists." (Encycl. Britt.).Up until the beginning of the 19th century, our understanding of antiquities had been very loose and fumbling.

Joseph Martin
Joseph Marten; Moseley & Thompson, Printers, Charlottesville, 1836. 636 pp. Full leather binding with leather spine label and gilt lettering. Front outer hinge cracked at the bottom. Boards still attached. Significant bowing of the text block (see pic), though a professional book binder with a press should be able to resolve this. INCLUDES the exceptionally scarce folding map. Map is complete, but it has been repaired with tape on the backside along some of the fold lines. Martin's Gazetteer is one of the best sources of information on pre-Civil War Virginia and the District of Columbia. As the subtitle notes, it "contains geographical, statistical, political, commercial, religious, moral and miscellaneous information collected and compiled from the most respectable and chiefly from original sources, along with a history of Virginia from its first settlement to the year 1754 as written expressly for the work by a Virginian." Using information consolidated from local contributors, Martin was able to provide exceptionally detailed essays about nearly all communities in Virginia and the District of Columbia including their boundaries, geology, scenery, topography and noteworthy natural attractions, weather, people, government, religion, education, militia, hospitals, prisons, industry, agriculture, finance, and much more. This is a truly scarce and historically valuable piece of Virginiana. See Bradford 3218a, Eames 44894, Howes M340, and Sabin 44894. Not Ex-Lib.

Washington Irving
Good: Foxing and Some tears to the spine(s): occasional torn page but not missing any texts. Washington Irving was commissioned to write up the notes of a group of business and military men who had travelled to the mouth of the Columbia River in 1811 to set up an exploratory mission investigating the possiblilities for fur and other trade opportuonities. Financed by John Jacob Astor--hence, the name--the mission failed but much valuable information was uncovered. Astor hired Irving to write this report using the notes of the various men who had made the attempt. This particular edition is in Two Bound Volumes: there is a good bit of foxing in both and the boards have some dicoloration, markings and chips. There is some missing material on the spines, cracks to the hinges, scuffing and other evidence of hard usage; I do believe these have been read several times. There is a torn page at hte front of volume I poorly mended iwth tape. And penciled names in both volumes. But that Map! Bound into Volume II is a map of the Pacific Northwest from the Missouri River on west. In very good condition, there is some discoloration due to age and a tear at the bottom near the spine and some foxing but what a piece of Americana! Please see photos for Condition and areas covered. Do not hesitate to email with questions or for more pictures. We're glad to assist. Good Condition: 8vo (9" X 5 3/4"); hard board with stains, fading and cracks: cracks to the hinges at the spine, front and back on Volume I while Volume II is primarily cracked at the back:gold color applied at the spine with gilt … [Click Below for Full Description]

Washington Irving
London: Richard Bentley. Publishers original binding. Complete in three volumes. Washington Irving (April 3, 1783 - November 28, 1859) was an American author, essayist, biographer and historian of the early 19th century. He is best known for his short stories "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle". In 1834, Irving was approached by fur magnate John Jacob Astor, who convinced Irving to write a history of his fur trading colony in the American Northwest, now known as Astoria, Oregon. Irving made quick work of Astor's project, shipping the biographical account titled Astoria in February 1836. With a previous owner's ink inscription to each title page, reading 'Lynedock'.

William Beattie
George Virtue, 1836. First editions. Illustrated throughout with one hundred and six plates taken from views by W. H. Bartlett, including one folding map. William Henry Bartlett (March 26, 1809 - September 13, 1854) was a British artist, best known for his numerous steel engravings. Bartletts primary concern was to render "lively impressions of actual sights", as he wrote in the preface to The Nile Boat (London, 1849). Many views contain some ruin or element of the past including many scenes of churches, abbeys, cathedrals and castles, and Nathaniel Parker Willis described Bartlett's talent thus: "Bartlett could select his point of view so as to bring prominently into his sketch the castle or the cathedral, which history or antiquity had allowed". Complete in two volumes. CONDITION In half-calf bindings. Externally rubbed, with wear to the extremities and discolouration to the boards. Slight loss to spine labels. Internally firmly bound. Pages are bright, with scattered foxing throughout. Overall Condition: Good Only.

Due testate stampate su Cina, due frontespizi incisi e 800 miniature grandi in-text. Come spesso, il secondo volume del 1840. Questa funzione è in realtà abbastanza comune nel settore dell'editoria, anche se abbiamo difficoltà a capire come l'editor è stato in grado di mescolare volumi dell'edizione 1836 che del 1840, a meno che 2 piste sono stati stabiliti simultaneamente. Binding semi antico dolore nero. Indietro con false nervi decorati con grassi e magri reti, ruote e testa coda. Titolo e il volume numero dorato. Tutto relativamente fresco, con molto poco foxing, concentrata su alcuni passaggi, tra cui la prefazione. Alcuni fogli ingialliti nel Volume I. Nel prologo Volume I, marrone tracce margini interni di un nastro di carta (segnalibro) che è stato portato via su 3 fogli, da fading. Buona copia, un buon pareggio. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale traduite par Louis Viardot et illustrée par Tony Johannot en premier tirage. Deux frontispices imprimés sur Chine, deux pages de titre gravées, et 800 grandes vignettes in-texte. Comme très souvent, le second volume est de 1840. Cette particularité est en effet assez commune à l'édition, même si on s'explique mal comment l'éditeur a pu mélanger des tomes du tirage de 1836 à celui de 1840, à moins que les 2 tirages furent établis en même temps, ce qui est plus probable (il s'agirait donc du même tirage, mais avec une page de titre de relai … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Also published as an introduction to Uber die Kawi-sprach..., 1836. Only a small number of copies were issued separately. cf. "'Vorwort' by Alexandre v. Humboldt" (NUC). "Eventually, he turned to the study of the ancient Kawi language of Java. The work remained only a fragment when Humboldt died; but he had completed a lengthy foreword on The Heterogeneity of Language and its Influence on the Intellectual Development of Mankind (Uber die Verschiedenheit...) which was edited by his younger brother. .. the great traveler and naturalist, and published posthumously. .. In the words of A.H. Sayce, a great philologist of our own day: 'This essay first clearly laid down that the character and structure of a language expresses the inner life and knowledge of the speakers, and that languages must differ from one another in the same way and to the same degree as those who use them'" [PMM].

Octavo, original cloth, gilt titles to the spine, rubbing and wear to the extremities, early ownership inscription on the front free endpaper. In good condition. A rare and unrestored example of early American Judaica. American Jewish lay minister, author, translator, and publisher Issac Leeser's "contributions to every area of Jewish culture and religion made him a major builder of American Judaism." In addition to his influence on the Jewish pulpit in the United States, Leeser became the first American Jewish publisher and produced the first Jewish translation of the bible into English. "The translation of the Bible was Leeser's great literary achievement and represented many years of patient labor and devotion to a task which he considered sacred...until the new Jewish Publication Society version was issued in 1917, it was the only source from which many Jews not conversant with Hebrew derived their knowledge of the Bible in accordance with Jewish tradition" (Waxman, 1090).

Luigi ROSSINI (Ravenna 1790 - Roma 1875)
veduta della città tratta dal "Gli Archi Trionfali Onorarii e Funebri degli Antichi Romani Sparsi per tutta Italia", rara opera del Rossini, pubblicata quale settima parte del grande corpus grafico dell'architetto ravennate sulle antichità romane, incentrata suglia archi trionfali e funerari eretti dagli imperatori romani. View of the city taken from "Gli Archi Trionfali Onorarii e Funebri degli Antichi Romani Sparsi per tutta Italia", printed for the author in 1836. Luigi Rossini was a master engraver who produced over one thousand plates of buildings, ruins, gardens and monuments. His career coincided with a period of great archeological activity. His etchings of Rome followed Piranesi's example, and reported the latest excavations to an avidly interested European audience. This volume was published as the seventh part of Rossini's grand opus of engravings of ancient Roman antiquities, and concentrates specifically on triumphal and funerary arches. Half of the engravings are exquisite views of the arches themselves, with the remaining plates providing more detailed study of the bas-relief decoration of the arches. All of the major arches in Rome are engraved as well as the magnificent examples in Trieste, Rimini, Fano, Benevento, Aosta, Susa, Perugia, Pola, Carsoli, Spello, Verona, Spoleto, Pompeii and Ancona. Copperplate, in very good conditions. Rare.
