1836. 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.

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.

London: Printed for Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, & Longman, 1836.. 12mo, pp. [1-6] [1-3] 4-447 [448: printer's imprint], original green vertically ribbed cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, all edges untrimmed, yellow coated endpapers. First edition. A collection of satirical essays, dialogues and fiction, including a short novel, "A Journey to the Moon" (pages 3-148). "The story opens as a parody of previous lunar journeys with all the usual trappings, the author declining to provide details of his flight other than he landed in a grassy plain across which he and his fellow travelers could bounce 'like balls of India rubber.' Setting out alone, he encounters the spirits of dead Earthmen and discovers a world which is the receptacle for everything ever lost from the Earth, including dreams of youth, words once spoken, and various passions and traits ... The book as a whole received mixed reviews in the press, one calling it 'one of the most felicitous pieces of philosophical humor in our language' while another commented that 'the dose [of ridicule and satire] is too large' for one volume and would have been better suited to 'papers for a magazine.'" - Howgego, Encyclopedia of Exploration: Invented and Apocryphal Narratives of Travel R30.

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.

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.

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.

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. An abridged edition, without the quotations, appeared in 1839, with a new preface, but uncorrected. Richardson also published a book on the study of language, an explanation of Tooke's Diversions of Purley (1854). He contributed papers to the Gentleman's Magazine, and wrote essays on 'English Grammar and English Grammarians,' and on 'Fancy and Imagination. Previous owner's bookplates to front pastedown.

GEORGE W FEATHERSTONHAUGH
Gales and Seaton, 1836. First edition, 8vo, pp. 168; 4 engraved plates plus a large folding map in separate sleeve of later green cloth, paper label on spine; original brown cloth, extremities faded, some spotting, bookplate removed, else very good. This copy inscribed to "The Hon. Mr. Woodbury with the comps. of the author." The map, which measures approx. 27 1/2" x 40" shows "a portion of the Indian country lying east and west of the Mississippi, River to the forty-sixth degree of north latitude," showing much of Wisconsin and sections of Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa, and all of Lake Michigan. The result of a British scientist's geological reconnaissance through the Great Lakes and upper Mississippi valley in 1835-37. Featherstonhaugh began his journey in Washington, D.C. and traveled via Pittsburgh and Cleveland before visiting Detroit, and travelling by canoe on Lakes Huron and Michigan to Mackinac and Green Bay, thence via the Fox and Mississippi Rivers to Saint Anthony and Fort Snelling, where Featherstonhaugh's party ascended the Minnesota River as far as Lake Traverse on the Dakota border, and back again via Lake Pepin, Galena, and Saint Louis. His travels by canoe in Wisconsin and Minnesota are of particular interest. Not in Howes or Graff; Sabin 23963. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

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]

SHELLEY, Mary.
[14 North Bank, London?:] 14 May 1836. Single leaf (250 x 197 mm), thrice folded. Wax seal extant though split, small split to paper where seal was broken, some light marks, but generally in very good condition. A very scarce and superb signed letter of two pages from Mary Shelley to her friend Edward Trelawny, discussing with extraordinary vehemence her dislike of Claire Clairmont: "Claire always harps upon my desertion of her—as if I could desert one I never clung to—we were never friends—Now, I would not go to Paradise, with her for a companion—she poisoned my life when young—that is over now—but as we never loved each other, why these eternal complaints to me of me. I respect her now much—& pity her deeply—but years ago my idea of Heaven was a world without a Claire—of course these feelings are altered—but she has still the faculty of making me more uncomfortable than any human being—a faculty she, unconsciously perhaps, never fails to exert whenever I see her." This letter is one of 21 autograph letters acquired from the Mary Shelley specialist Professor Jean de Palacio of the University of Lille - this small clutch aside, autograph letters from Mary Shelley very seldom come to market, and this one throws an unusually revealing light on one of the key relationships of her life.

Charles Richardson
William Pickering, 1836. Condition: Good. 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. An abridged edition, without the quotations, appeared in 1839, with a new preface, but uncorrected. Richardson also published a book on the study of language, an explanation of Tooke's Diversions of Purley (1854). He contributed papers to the Gentleman's Magazine, and wrote essays on 'English Grammar and English Grammarians,' and on 'Fancy and Imagination. Previous owner's bookplates to front pastedown.

Presentation copy of the first edition of the first part of the father of English socialism's "most extensive work" (ODNB), inscribed on the title-page: "William Winstanley Esq, With the kind regard of his old friend, The Author." The Book of the New Moral World, which took its name from the socialist periodical published by Owen's Rational Society, eventually ran to seven parts, published over eight years. William Winstanley, along with John Dalton, the chemist and author of the modern atomic theory, were early friends from Owen's time in Manchester, where he had relocated in the 1780s to pursue his career in textile manufacturing. Winstanley and Dalton were assistants to a Dr. Bains in the Manchester Unitarian College. "The three friends often met in the evening and discussed theology, moral philosophy, and science. Coleridge, then an undergraduate at Cambridge, begged to be admitted to the party" (Sargent, Robert Owen: And His Social Philosophy, 1860, p. 16). Kress C4213. Provenance: William Winstanley (presentation inscription from the author); H. Winstanley (1852 ownership inscription on front pastedown).

HODGKIN, Thomas.
FIRST EDITION. G&M 2290. "One of the earliest English books on pathology" (Garrison), and the stimulus for the study of tissue pathology in England. Hodgkin was the first in England to give a regular course of lectures in morbid anatomy, which he began at Guy's Hospital in 1827. The notes for his lectures over the years became the basis for the present book, which established his reputation as a member of the distinguished school of morbid anatomists connected with Guy's Hospital. Hodgkin made a number of original observations in the course of his lectures, although in many cases others put them into print before him. Hodgkin gave an impetus to the study of pathology which extended to many aspects of the subject. His extensive lectures included not just the changes which occur to the body after the death, but external injury, the working of poisons, and other forensic details. G&M 2290. Long, A History of Pathology, pp. 162-163: "...a monumental treatise." Very scarce, especially so when both volumes are found together.

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.

Wathen, William Henry
[Bombay]: printed by F.D. Ramos at the Government Gazette Press, 1836. First edition. 4to, 28 x 20 cm; pp.[vi], 55, [1, blank], 56-57 [lithographed, manuscript pagination], 58, [1, blank], 59-63 [lithographed, manuscript pagination], [1, blank], 64-66, [1, blank], 67-68 [lithographed, manuscript pagination], 69-70, [32]; contemporary lithographic folded map of Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan inserted after the dedication leaf. Contemporary Indian half calf over marbled boards, worn but sound; some toning, occasional light spots; contemporary annotations. The first grammar of the Sindhi language, predominantly romanized, with some devanagari and nasta'liq characters. The conclusion of treaties between the East India Company and the Amirs of Sindh appears to have prompted Wathen's work. Wathen was Chief Secretary to the Government of Bombay, and compiled his work without once visiting Sindh, owing to the large Sindhi-speaking minority resident in Bombay. Wathen's was a pioneering work, but one held in light regard by later authors. The final unnumbered sequence comprises vocabularies English-Sindhi and Sindhi-English, and a final leaf containing the names of the months and days of the week. COPAC gives BL, Liverpool, and SOAS only.

Printed by Joseph Gales and Son, Raleigh, (NC), 1836. FIRST EDITION. 424 pp. (2), 6 pp. Period leather, ownership signatures (Salisbury/Rowan name, though I can't make out the last name, appears to be a William G. Mc?), foxing, covers worn and scuffed, bound in calf with red leather label gilt, cracked at the upper joint (but holding). First edition. "The Convention of 1835 was a turning point in the history of North Carolina, its achievement a victory for democracy" (Lefler); suffrage was expanded, the east's domination over the west was diminished, the power of the General Assembly to enact private legislation was restricted, the power of the governor was increased, and representation in the assembly was tied into population figures. Thornton Official Publications 389 (giving a slightly different title, but the same collation). A really nice copy of this work. Not Ex-Lib. I've done my best to describe the book, but if you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail. [Attributes: First Edition]

P Flourens
Paris: Librairie médicale de Trinquart, Rue de L'École de Médecine, 9, 1836. First edition, 4to, pp. [4], 191, [1] errata; 10 lithograph plates at the back, 4 folding; 2 folding plates with short tears, another with a longer tear (but no loss in any instance); original printed gray paper-covered boards (publisher's ads on back cover), edges rubbed, top of spine chipped away, minor spots and stains; a good, sound copy. The plates, printed on cheap paper, are uniformly toned and slightly spotted. "Protégé of Cuvier, talented, unusually skillful" (DSB) Flourens founded, with Arago, the Comptes rendu, still one of the greatest of all scientific periodicals, and tusseled with Victor Hugo over an election to the French Academy. His work was precise, and largely accurate, and he made a number of important discoveries in his field of physiology. But he was often authoritarian, and he notoriously criticized Darwin in 1864.
