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.

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.

Konigliche Akademie der Wissenschaften. 4to, pp. xxiv [2] ccccxxx; extremities rubbed; later blue buckram, paper labels on spine, university bookplate with discard stamp. Humboldt (1767-1835), the founder of the University of Berlin who showed the philological commonality of Spain with the north of Africa, was the older brother of the more celebrated Alexander von Humboldt.

"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].

Women]: [Slavery]: [First Amendment]
[N.p, 1836. Partially-printed document, completed in manuscript, sewn horizontally to another sheet, the whole measuring 10 x 7 3/4 inches. Old folds, scattered foxing and spotting, mild edge wear. Very good. A wonderful but sobering relic from a time before the abolition of slavery, when ordinary people sought to end the peculiar institution through sheer force of will and by petitioning the government for redress. The present document is one of numerous variant forms of the petition utilized by abolitionists, especially female abolitionists in the mid-19th century. The text of the petition reads, in full: "Petition to the Senate and House of Representatives, of the United States of America. The undersigned, Women of [Cumberland] deeply convinced of the sinfulness of Slavery, do earnestly petition your honourable body to Abolish Slavery, and the Slave Trade, in the District of Columbia, where you exercise "exclusive jurisdiction." We are aware that scenes of party and political strife, are not the fields to which a kind Providence has assigned us; we cannot, however, but regard it as our duty to supplicate for the oppressed, those common rights of humanity, of which they have been long deprived, and which they dare not ask for themselves." The printed text is sewn horizontally along the middle, attaching it to a blank sheet on which five women have added their signatures. This was likely the result of the printed form being made elsewhere and then distributed by an anti-slavery organization, after which the blank sheet was sewn to the form and signed locally.

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.

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.

Mrs. Mary Randolph
Baltimore: John Plaskett, 1836. "VIRGINIA HOUSEWIFE: Or, Methodical Cook. By Mrs. Mary Randolph. Method in the Soul of Management. Stereotype Edition, With Amendments and Additions. Baltimore: Published by John Plaskett; 218 Market Street. 1836." Leather bound. Original antiquarian book. 180 pages. Approximately 4" x 7" x 1". A rare cook book that will become much harder to find as the holidays approach. In fact, this is the only 1836 copy currently available on the market. I find it incredible that the original leather binding has held up so well after all these years. The book is actually quite firm and very intact. I'll start with the few minor condition issues so that collectors are completely clear on what they will receive: first attached endpaper is present/attached but has a missing piece, the first free endpaper is in similar condition. The title page has a small tear out of the upper right corner. The corners are bumped. Book is moderately spotted from first to last page. This is true spotting, not foxing, and I believe it is due to antique food crumbs--an added bonus! There are two individual leaves, 119 and 121, that have had the lower 15% torn off. Otherwise, we are looking at a very presentable copy, a highly important early American cook book that would make a great gift. Considering the overall intactness, I feel confident in rating this book in good + condition. Come Christmas or Thanksgiving, this book could easily serve as the main conversation piece. Also included is a small handwritten recipe for ginger bread, which is obviously much more recent than th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Le roman est précédé de l’important « historique du procès auquel a donné lieu le Lys dans la vallée » qui n’a pas été maintenu dans les éditions postérieures. Balzac avait en effet confié la prépublication de son roman à la Revue de Paris. Ayant appris que Buloz, le directeur de cette revue, avait vendu à son insu à la Revue étrangère de Saint-Pétersbourg des épreuves du Lys dans la vallée, Balzac refusa de lui livrer la fin du roman. Furieux, Buloz intenta un procès à l’auteur. Après cinq pénibles mois, Balzac obtint satisfaction, et le roman parut début juin, précédée de cette mordante : « Histoire du procès auquel a donné lieu le Lys dans la vallée ». Le retentissement de ce procès assura au roman un succès immédiat : 1800 des 2000 exemplaires furent écoulés le jour même de la mise en vente. BEL EXEMPLAIRE CONSERVÉ DANS SA RELIURE DE L’ÉPOQUE.

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.
