Miguel de CERVANTES
first edition translated by Louis Viardot and illustrated by Tony Johannot First printing. Two frontispieces printed on China, two engraved title pages, and 800 large in-text vignettes.Binders full morocco marine long grain vintage signed Shore tail. Smooth backs adorned with a large romantic iron mirror, creating a cartridge for the title and the tomaison. Ornament rocaille and nets framing boards. Inland frieze. White moiré guards. The backs have slightly and in some places turned to violin, as well as areas on the upper plate of Volume 2. Friction on the joints, with a crack initiation, very narrow, the upper joint at the tail of Volume 2. Upper corners rubbed and a little folded. Traces of friction on the boards and backs, light overall. Stains on the guards. Flesh unevenly distributed, paper sometimes tinted and without foxing, or whiter with foxing. Despite the defects mentioned, very good copy, rare in this condition.The bindings in full skin of this book are extremely rare, especially in a binding of master of the time in full morocco long grain.Famous illustrated romantic; one of the best productions of Johannot, with the Voyage where you will like it and the Roland furious . Johannot is less popular than Grandville is, probably because he is more typically romantic, in the sense of Hugo, at once sweet and sentimental, then whimsical and morbid to the grotesque. There is more mystery and dread in him than in his relative."One of the very beautiful illustrated books of the nineteenth" Vicar.

PERRIER, François and Petrus SCHENCK.
Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) XXV, 542 (portrait) & 1836-1936; 7 copies located in libraries worldwide; cf. Thieme & Becker XXX, pp. 29-30. Rare first and only edition printed from Schenck's plates, of a set of illustrations of statues that survived in Rome, originally drawn, engraved and published by François Perrier (1590-1650) in 1638. Except for plates 22 and 23, Schenk's plates appear in mirror image. Among the statues are the Laocoon group, Marcus Aurelius, Cleopatra and many other great works of classical art. The contents (Latin and Dutch in parallel columns) divide the plates into three groups: upright male figures , upright female figures and reclining figures, but in fact the two double-page plates are large groups of upright figures forming scenes. Like the engraved contents list in Perrier's 1638 print series, this list gives some information about the statues, including their locations.The book is dedicated to Christian Eberhard, Fürst of Ostfriesland with an illustrated dedication plate with the Ostfriesland arms and a mezzotint portrait following the title-page. These do not appear in all copies: Picarta lists 3 copies of the present edition, but mentions no portrait.In good condition, with tears expertly and unobtrusively repaired in 3 plates (49-50, 88). Binding with light stains. An attractive presentation of 100 statues or groups of statues from classical antiquity.

MILL John Stuart
Autograph Letter Signed (?J. Stuart Mill?) in French to Doctor Eduard Loewenthal (1836-1917), referring to the publication and translation of several of Mill's works, including On Liberty. 3½ pages. 8vo. Avignon, 24 January 1868. In this unpublished letter, written from his house in Avignon five years before his death, John Stuart Mill responds in French, due to his self-confessed ?lack of practice with German cursive script?, to an enquiry from the German philosopher and social reformer Doctor Eduard Loewenthal (1836-1917) regarding the publication of Mill?s speeches and the potential translation of Mill?s works into German. Loewenthal is best remembered for his contributions to the European pacifist movement, for which he received six nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize between 1901-1913. He was an early supporter of the ?Idea of Europe? and formed a series of organisations that aimed to promote international pacifism through the establishment of a European parliament. One of Loewenthal?s early organisations, the League for a European Alliance, maintained close contacts with the more renowned and reputable League of Peace and Freedom, a mostly liberal peace organisation with a prominent list of members that included John Stuart Mill himself, as well as Victor Hugo, Mikhail Bakunin, and Giuseppe Garibaldi, amongst others. However, in the context of this letter, it is Loewenthal?s lesser-known philosophical thought that is more immediately pertinent. Loewenthal was an outspoken opponent of Darwinism and developed a metaphysical cosmology that he presented as an alternativ … [Click Below for Full Description]

(English Victorian Cloth Bindings).
Various publishers. Hubert Dingwall (1912-2001) was a serious, knowledgeable, and discriminating book collector. He began his avocation in his early 20s, soon after he graduated from Oxford. His house in Wimbledon "had books in every room, except the kitchen and bathroom, and the house also boasted two large cellar rooms that were soon fitted up with library-style shelves, lighting and background heating to accommodate Hubert's ever-growing collection" (Bloomsbury auction catalogue, 27 April 2017). The collection was rich in Cervantes, emblemata, modern presses, and 19th-century English cloth bindings. That latter collection, offered here, consists of => 78 works in 79 volumes. The binding designers include W. Kelsall, John Leighton, William Harry Roers, T. Kennedy, Albert Warren, Henry Shaw, Joseph Cundall, John Sliegh, H. Gaville Fell, Patten Wilson, Henry Noel Humphreys, and Josiah and Frederick Westerley. The authors are both British and American and range from the famous to the lesser known: Poe, Longfellow, Bunyan, Burns, Defoe, Hawthorne;Tennyson, and Shakespeare in one group, and John R. Vernon, Mary Louis Boyle, Robert Pollock, and Samuel James in the other. In sharp contrast to American cloth bindings of this era, many of the English ones are => signed in the binding by the designers. While in the 1840s and 50s a few American binderies like Bradley of Boston signed their work with an embossed stamp on the front fly-leaf, bindings signed by the actual designers within the design are truly rare. American cloth bindings so signed are a phenomenon of the 188 … [Click Below for Full Description]

King, Richard:
London: Richard Bentley, 1836. Two volumes. xv,[3],312; viii,321,[1]pp., plus four plates including two frontispieces and a single-page map. List of plates usually found in second volume is bound in first volume in this copy. Later 19th-century half red-orange pebbled cloth and green paper- covered boards, spines gilt. Minor edge wear, corners worn. Modern bookplate on each front pastedown, previous owner's signature on front free endpapers, frontispiece in second volume a bit tender, occasional mild marginal foxing. Very good. "Dr. King's narrative is full of the details of Indian life, as it was presented to the members of Captain Back's expedition. He looked at the same transactions with the natives, and the same phases of their character which Captain Back portrays, from a different point, and their coloring to his eye bears another tinge. His journal, filled with descriptions of interviews with the Chippewyans, Crees, Dog-Ribs, and Esquimaux, is therefore exceedingly interesting even after the perusal of Captain Back's narrative. Although every chapter is largely devoted to incidents associated with the natives, and anecdotes illustrative of their character, Dr. King yields the whole of Chapter XII to an examination and relation of the present condition of the tribes inhabiting the Hudson's Bay territories. The Doctor does not attempt to conceal the chagrin he felt, at the cool absorption of his own careful researches in the narrative of Captain Back. In the splendid work of that really eminent explorer, there appears a little, and but a little of that want of ge … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hay (David Ramsay)
William and Robert Chambers; and Orr & Smith London, 1836. with 5 plates formed of pasted-on coloured paper triangles, and 5 diagrams within the text, 4 of which are hand-coloured, pp. vii, [1], 72, 8vo, original green cloth, printed paper label on upper cover, slight damp marks to edges of boards, the upper cover a trifle faded, ink stamp inside front cover of the Ben Damph Forest library, family seat of the Earls of Lovelace, good. 'On seeking Scott's advice regarding his early wish to become an artist, [Hay] was taken into the author's study where they conversed at length. Scott recommended that unless he felt such a 'glow of ambition that [he] would rather run a hundred chances of obscurity and penury than miss one of being a Wilkie he should resolutely set himself to introducing something of a more elegant style of house-painting' (Lockhart, 7.201–2). Hay was 'modest and wise enough to accept the advice with thankfulness, and to act upon it. After a few years he had qualified himself to take charge of all this delicate limning and blazoning at Abbotsford' (ibid.) . From the outset, Hay took an interest in the theoretical side of his work and in 1828 published a slim volume, the Laws of Harmonious Colouring. The work ran to six editions in nineteen years, each edition increasing in scope, and was essentially rewritten after the fourth edition. In a notice of 1843 in the Edinburgh Review, the eminent scientist David Brewster acclaimed Hay's work for bringing 'scientific truth' to the otherwise murky speculations abounding on the fine arts . Most of Hay's works were illus … [Click Below for Full Description]

Philadelphia: T. Wardle, 1836. 2 volumes, octavo. Original purple cloth, titles to spines in gilt. Spines faded to brown, edges of covers faded, tips slightly worn, vol. I joints partly cracked, superficial tear to top of the front joint vol. 2, contents slightly foxed. A very good copy. First US edition, uncommon in the publisher's cloth. First published in 1621, the title page indicated that this is the "first American [edition], from the thirteenth English edition, corrected." The Anatomy "was one of the most popular books of the seventeenth century. All the learning of the age as well as its humour – and its pedantry – are there. It has something in common with Brant's Ship of Fools, Erasmus's Praise of Folly, and More's Utopia, with Rabelais and Montaigne and like all these it exercised a considerable influence on the thought of the time. Dr Johnson deeply admired it, and Charles Lamb's often and strongly expressed devotion served to rescue the Anatomy from a brief period of oblivion" (PMM 120). Garrison & Morton 4198.1.

BLACKSTONE, William
London: S. Sweet, 1836. Nineteenth edition. Hardcover. Very good. Octavo, 4 vol., 485pp., 519pp., 443pp., 455pp., plus various appendices, and an index in Volume III. A very good set in contemporary light brown morocco, with raised bands, black and red spine labels (likely more recent), gilt borders, and marbled endpapers. Some gentle taps and commensurate wear to several corners, bottom edges gently scuffed, a silver-dollar-sized stain to the front board of volume I, and the spines are somewhat darkened, though the gilt and color of the spine labels (the latter of which could be the only evidence of restoration) remain vibrant. Small inked name of B. Beinart appears modestly on a preliminary leaf in each volume. This cornerstone of legal references was not a rare book in its day, but is difficult to find with all four volumes present, and uniformly and handsomely bound.

He served again under Franklin on further Arctic explorations in 1819-1822 and 1825-1827. This, his fourth expedition, which he commanded, was tasked with searching for Captain John Ross, but the news of Ross's safe return allowed the party to travel into the Great Slave Lake and discover the Great Fish River, or Back River, and to map as much as possible of the coast. He travelled 7,500 miles, 1,200 of them over unknown territory. Wagner-Camp 58b; Field 64; Hill 42; Lande 935; Arctic Bib. 851; Sabin 2613; TPL 1873. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[William Thornton Cust] Boyd of the prominent Boyd family and with his bookplate (See DOCB, Boyd, Mossom Martin). Duodecimo (17 cm), twenty engraved illustrations, in original brown publisher’s cloth, gilt lettering to spine. 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.
