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.

CERVANTES Miguel de
- Dubochet et Cie, Paris 1836 - 1840, In-8 (17,5x25,5cm), 744pp. et 758pp., relié. - Edizione originale tradotto da Louis Viardot e illustrato da Tony Johannot prima estrazione. 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]

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]

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.

Karl Humboldt
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].

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.

Cadwalader, Henry
[Various places at sea and in port in the Indian Ocean, Gulf of Siam, and China Sea, as described below], 1836. [118]pp. manuscript on 12 1/2 x 8-inch sheets of paper. A total of some 32,500 words. Includes a pen and ink sketch of "The Town of Zanzibar from the Harbour," and of the island of "Pemba." Plus a fragment of a sheet of paper containing a few caricatures and a sketch of the U.S.S. Peacock. Title-leaf and the following text leaf with a long repaired tear; some slight edge wear or staining to the leaves. In very good condition. In an oblong half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. An absolutely outstanding American naval manuscript, this is the journal kept by Midshipman Henry Cadwalader for the first nine months of his voyage as part of the United States Navy's East India Squadron. Cadwalader sailed on the U.S.S. Peacock, the flagship of the squadron, and on the U.S.S. Enterprise, the squadron's supporting schooner. The journal is rich with his observations on the places he visited, including Zanzibar, Bombay, Ceylon, and Batavia. Though he went to sea as a teenager, Cadwalader seems to have been well educated (he was a scion of a notable Philadelphia family), and his journal is well written and lively, filled with keen observations of his life on board ship and of the various places he visited on his voyage. The journal gives an excellent picture of life at sea for a young man in the 1830s. Cadwalader is reflective and introspective, yet keenly observant of his surroundings and of the character of the men on his ship and of the natives and British coloni … [Click Below for Full Description]

WALTON, IZAAK and CHARLES COTTON
London: [Printed by Charles Whittingham for] William Pickering, 1836. First Nicolas Edition. A Large Paper Copy. This is an especially desirable copy, very attractively bound and in outstanding condition, of one of the finest illustrated editions of "Angler" ever produced. Walton (1593-1683) lived in turbulent times, and he suffered personal tragedy (he endured the deaths of both his wives and eight of his nine children), but, largely because of the present work, he is forever identified with quietude and serenity. First published in 1653, his "Compleat Angler" is the classic work on the art of angling, infused with wise fish lore, written by an indomitable angler who knew every haunt of fresh water fish in the south of England. But, as Day says, "the love of angling is only the outward sign of a gentle inward grace, the soul of a thoroughly good man who loves peace and quiet meditation. If any one man created the idyll of the English countryside, it was Walton." Oliver notes that this edition "is conspicuous for its illustrations" by "some of the most prominent artists of the time," and "Bibliotheca Piscatoria" tells us that "this superb edition contains the variations of all the first five editions, voluminous notes, [and] original and elaborate memoirs of Walton and Cotton, presenting many new facts." According to Coigney, it was produced in a regular and a Large Paper version, the latter (including the present copy) with plates on India paper.

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.

Traill, Catharine Parr
London: Charles Knight, 1836. First edition, in two volumes (pp. 180, 351, appendix). 16mo (17 cm) in well -preserved original paper wraps, as issued; twenty engraved illustrations, frontispiece, title page bound in at rear of volume two. Unopened/ untrimmed (and therefore unread) still awaiting the ministrations of a bookbinder. Traill’s first book, according to Needler in Otonabee Pioneers, was intended ‘to enlighten the people of the Old Country on Canada, and to encourage immigration,- not to discourage it, as her sister Mrs. Moodie [who suffers at Needler’s hands] did in Roughing It in the Bush’ (95). Earlier, Needler writes, ‘.for seven years the Traills lived the stern life of pioneers making themselves a home in the unbroken forest land of the upper Otonabee. Here, in the midst of such hardships as she could never have dreamt of as she left her home in the Suffolk countryside, Catharine Parr Traill found time to write the long letters on the experiences of the first four years that make up her book.’ (90). In History of the Book in Canada, George L. Parker in his article “Courting Local and International Markets” says, ‘Almost as disheartening [as the fortunes of John Richardson, author of Wacousta] were the circumstances of the Strickland sisters, who arrived in 1832, both recently married to half-pay officers, and ready to carve out homes in the wilderness near Lakefield, Upper Canada.

London F.G. Moon, 1836. First edition, large folio (56 x 38cm), lithograph vignette title, dedication, list of plates, 25 tinted lithographs, each plate with tissues, bound in red morocco back cloth boards, gilt lettered on spine; a fine example Travelling in the footsteps of the Scottish painter David Wilkie, to whom this work is dedicated, Lewis travelled through Spain for two years between 1832 and 1834. On his return he devoted the next three to four years to Spanish subjects, remarkable for their fine style, and as a result, and in order to avoid confusion with his brother who was working in India at the time, he became known as 'Spanish' Lewis. 'Spanish' Lewis was much praised by Ruskin, in company with Prout, in a passage from Elements of Drawing (1867): 'Let no lithographic work come into the house if you can help it, nor even look at any except Prout's and those sketches of Lewis's'. Whilst in his autobiography Praeterita Ruskin also says of Lewis that he is the painter of greatest power, next to Turner, in the English school.

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.

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.

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. I've done my best to describe the book, but if you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to send me an e … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

William Tyndale could speak seven languages and was proficient in ancient Hebrew and Greek. He was a priest whose intellectual gifts and disciplined life could have taken him a long way in the church--had he not had one compulsion: to teach English men and women the good news of justification by faith. Tyndale had discovered this doctrine when he read Erasmus's Greek edition of the New Testament. What better … [Click Below for Full Description]
