"Of the three great political upheavals which have altered the face of the earth-the American, French and Russian Revolutions-only the French has stimulated literary masterpieces which, in turn, have made their impact, direct and indirect, upon millions of readers who would have, and have, left unread the productions of dispassionate scholarship. They are Carlyle's book [offered here] and the 'History of the French Revolution' by Michelet. Carlyle wrote his French revolution as a secular 'tract for the times' and as a warning for his compatriots of the frightful consequences of materialism, utilitarianism and democracy. Scottish puritanism and German romanticism were his lodestars; 'History is the essence of innumerable biographies' was his historical creed. The result is not a work of scholarship but a prose epic, teeming with colorful scenes of dramatic events and imaginative portraits of the leadin … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Ames, Julius Rubens]
[New York]: [American Anti-slavery Society], 1837. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 231 pages. An anthology of anti-slavery sentiment from a wide variety of politicians and other public figures, including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams, Henry Clay, Andrew Jackson, and Lydia Maria Child. There are chapters on the subject of "Authentic anecdotes of United States slavery" and"The African character." Illustrated with drawings of coins with the motto "Liberty" and a "Moral Map of U.S. Jan. 1837", showing the slave states in black The map is followed by a section of British commentary on Texas, which concludes, "if the Americans should obtain possession of Texas...a greater impulse would be given to the slave trade than had been experienced in many years." Indeed, the admission of Texas as a state, after the territory had succeeded from Mexico, did expand the slave South. This volume is issued without an author and pubisher; the details presented here are from the Library of Congress's cataloguing of the title. First edition (first printing). Half bound in leather over coarse cloth. Some foxing to interior pages; some spotting to covers; generally very good or better. Previous owner's signature on title page. A nice copy of a scarce book.

CHERUBINI, Luigi 1760-1842
Paris: L'Auteur [Maurice Schlesinger], [1837]. Folio. Dark green leather-backed marbled boards, titling and decorative devices gilt to spine. 1f. (recto title, verso blank), [1] (blank), 2-140 pp. Engraved. Composer's facsimile signature handstamp to lower margin of title. From the collection of Italian conductor, vocal coach, and close associate of Puccini and Mascagni, Luigi Ricci (1893-1981), previously from the collection of Italian composer Francesco Maria Albini (1829-1917), with his signature and "778" to title. Binding slightly worn and rubbed. Browning to platemark; scattered light foxing and minor offsetting throughout; impression to title light. First Edition. Hirsch IV, 731; 23. Bellasis, p. 335. RISM CC 2028 I. Cherubini's first Requiem in C minor (1816) was to be performed for the funeral of Boieldieu, but the Archbishop of Paris refused to allow it at La Madeleine due to the presence of women's voices, forcing the service's relocation to Les Invalides. (A similar objection was overcome for the funeral of Chopin in 1849, with the women singing behind a black curtain). One anecdote reports Cherubini's reaction: "... the clergy would admit no female singers, and thereby caused great annoyance. I do not wish the same thing to happen at my death, so I am writing a Requiem for men's voices - and then they will not have occasion to quarrel on my account, at least." Bellasis, p. 259. This second Requiem in D minor was completed in 1836 and first performed in its entirety on March 28, 1838 at the Paris Conservatoire. As planned, and as he requested, it was performed a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jane Berkeley-Calcott
Dublin : George Folds, 1837. An incredibly rare, unique copy of the second edition of the poems by the Irish child prodigy Miss Berkeley Calcott (Jane Berkeley Calcott [later Gaskin]), published in 1837 and likely amended by the author or her patron. Stanzas by Miss Berkeley Calcott 1837 Dublin : George Folds Pamphlet in plain paper wraps, 56pp. Page 43/44 has been removed, losing part of 'Thoughts on an Infant's Grave' and an unnamed poem (which has also been crossed out of the contents page with a very penetrative ink). Authorial correction to page 47. A little creased, otherwise bright Only one copy of the original edition of 1834 is held by the British Library (and digitised by them), published when the author was aged eleven. That edition had ten poems, whilst this extremely rare second edition published three years later contains 36 poems and a new preface, and is institutionally unrecorded. Not in Copac or Worldcat. Calcott later moved from Ireland and married John Gaskin, the rector of St. Cuthbert's in Bedford. Overseas buyer contact me for P&P quote.

[Jackson, Andrew] Robinson, H.R.
New York: H.R. Robinson, 1837. Oblong 13-1/2" x 21". Light dusting, a couple of closed tears and shallow extremity chips to blank margins. Else Very Good. The Library of Congress entry: "A satire attributing the dire fiscal straits of the nation to Andrew Jackson's banking policies, with specific reference to recent bank failures in New Orleans, New York, and Philadelphia. The artist blames the 1837 panic on Jackson's and later Van Buren's efforts to limit currency and emphasize specie (or coinage) as the circulating medium in the American economy. Missouri senator Thomas Hart Benton's role as an ally of the administration and champion of coinage (in the cartoonist's parlance 'mint drops') is also attacked. In an eighteenth-century sickroom scene Uncle Sam, wearing a liberty cap, a stars-and-stripes dressing gown, and moccasins, slumps in a chair. In his hand is a paper reading 'Failures...' Nicholas Biddle arrives, with a trunk of 'Post Notes' and 'Bonds,' and is greeted by Brother Jonathan. Jonathan: 'Oh Docr. Biddle I'm so glad you're come. Uncle Sam's in a darned bad way.' Biddle: 'I'll try what I can do & I've sent to Dr. John Bull for his assistance.' "The print is dated 1834 by Weitenkampf, but it must have appeared after Van Buren's victory in the 1836 presidential election, given Uncle Sam's remark, 'You are to nurse me now Aunt Matty.' Nancy Davison's date of 1837 is more credible.

COLERIDGE, Sara.]
London: William Pickering, 1837. Small octavo (163 x 100 mm). Contemporary burgundy morocco, spine lettered and tooled in gilt with curled roll to spine ends, flower-and-leaf device to compartments, raised bands striped and edged with triangular roll, thick gilt border of matching flower-and-leaf motifs to boards, scroll-and-leaf roll to board edges and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, edges gilt. A handsomely bound copy, spine slightly faded, joints and corners rubbed, the contents crisp and mostly clean, first and last gatherings lightly foxed, the occasional smudge or mark to margins, one tiny perforation to fore edge margin of leaf Bb6. Engraved publisher's device to title page. First edition, one of 250 copies published, of the long fairy-tale Phantasmion, "one of the earliest novel-length fantasies separate from the Gothic tradition" (Sanders), which has been described not only as an important precursor to The Lord of the Rings, but also by science-fiction aficionados as an early and influential example of that genre. The work is a prose epic set in a fantastical Lake District, where Sara Coleridge had grown up in the household of her uncle Robert Southey, and modelled on Spenser's Faerie Queene. It is a strong candidate for the first modern fantasy novel, preceding George MacDonald's Phantastes (1858) by two decades.

Just ask! 1837 Memoirs of John Mytton HUNTING Sports Color Illustrated Alken & Rawlins Charles Apperley's book 'Memoirs of the life of the late John Mytton' is a fascinating biography with beautiful color illustrations depicting different hunting scenes, which fell in line with Apperley's work writing for the Sporting Magazine of London. "This is not a work of fiction, for John Mytton, a rather inglorious character for a biography, was a hard-living, hard-drinking country squire of Halston, Shropshire, capable of the utmost physical endurance, and ready to accept any wager to walk, shoot or ride against any man. Many of his feats are recorded and graphically delineated, including the climax of his folly in setting his nightshirt on fire to cure a hiccough" (Martin Hardie). "A most valuable and important book for the sporting life of the period, aptly described by Newton as 'a biography of a man that reads like a work of fiction'" (Tooley).

Here Gurwood conveys the dispatches of Wellington from 1799 to 1815 and therefore provide the reader with an insight into the role of commander during the Napoleonic wars. To the conclusion in volume XII he notes 'It has been thought advisable here to conclude this work, and not to insert in it, as was proposed in the Introduction, the Dispatches of the years 1816, 1817 and 1818, the period of the occupation of France by the Allied Army under the Duke of Wellington.

This edition was edited by Hawthorne and his sister Elizabeth, "[t]he work in two volumes was deposited for copyright 29 July 1837.

(recto title, verso blank), [1] (blank), 2-140 pp. Engraved. Composer's facsimile signature handstamp to lower margin of title. From the collection of Italian conductor, vocal coach, and close associate of Puccini and Mascagni, Luigi Ricci (1893-1981), previously from the collection of Italian composer Francesco Maria Albini (1829-1917), with his signature and "778" to title. Binding slightly worn and rubbed. Browning to platemark; scattered light foxing and minor offsetting throughout; impression to title light. First Edition. Hirsch IV, 731; 23. Bellasis, p. 335. RISM CC 2028 I. Cherubini's first Requiem in C minor (1816) was to be performed for the funeral of Boieldieu, but the Archbishop of Paris refused to allow it at La Madeleine due to the presence of women's voices, forcing the service's relocation to Les Invalides. (A similar objection was overcome for the funeral of Chopin in 1849, with the women singing behind a black curtain). One anecdote reports Cherubini's reaction: ". the clergy would admit no female singers, and thereby caused great annoyance. I do not wish the same thing to happen at my death, so I am writing a Requiem for men's voices - and then they will not have occasion to quarrel on my account, at least." Bellasis, p. 259. This second Requiem in D minor was completed in 1836 and first performed in its entirety on March 28, 1838 at the Paris Conservatoire.

WELLSTED, James Raymond.
London: John Murray, 1837. Extract, modern cloth-backed marbled boards; title and contents, pp. 19-34, [Oman] 101-114; with coloured map, sheet 415 x 420mm, and uncoloured map, sheet 225 x 160mm. Original binding folds of maps flattened, with a little reinforcing. Second map with some creasing reinforced on verso. Two extracts from the Journal of the Royal Geographical Society relating to expeditions into the Arabian interior by Lieutenant James Raymond Wellsted. The first extract describes Wellsted's expedition to see pre-Mohammedan ruins in Yemen, illustrated with a sketch map. The second is far more important: the first published account of the first European expedition into the interior of Oman in modern times. It is illustrated with a ''Map of Oman in Arabia'', engraved by John Arrowsmith, on which Muscat, Nizwah and Ras Al Khaimah on 'The Pirate Coast' are marked, with a vignette of a walled oasis. Wellsted (1805-42), a surveyor in the Indian navy, had participated in Moresby's important survey of the Red Sea in the early 1830s. In 1835 he received permission from the Imam to travel into the interior of Oman in the company of Lieut. F. Whitelock, recorded on this map. When his paper was read at the Royal Geographical Society his work was rewarded with fellowships of both the R.G.S. and the Astronomical Society. Wellsted returned to Oman in the winter of 1836 but, delirious with fever, he put a pistol in his mouth and fired both barrels, escaping death but leaving serious wounds in his upper jaw. He never completely recovered, dying in London in his mid-thirties [Attri … [Click Below for Full Description]

APPERLEY, Charles James, aka NIMROD
Rudolph Ackermann, Eclipse Sporting Gallery, and New Sporting Magazine Office, 191 Regent Street. 1837 Memoirs of John Mytton HUNTING Sports Color Illustrated Alken & Rawlins Charles Apperley’s book ‘Memoirs of the life of the late John Mytton’ is a fascinating biography with beautiful color illustrations depicting different hunting scenes, which fell in line with Apperley’s work writing for the Sporting Magazine of London. "This is not a work of fiction, for John Mytton, a rather inglorious character for a biography, was a hard-living, hard-drinking country squire of Halston, Shropshire, capable of the utmost physical endurance, and ready to accept any wager to walk, shoot or ride against any man. Many of his feats are recorded and graphically delineated, including the climax of his folly in setting his nightshirt on fire to cure a hiccough” (Martin Hardie). "A most valuable and important book for the sporting life of the period, aptly described by Newton as 'a biography of a man that reads like a work of fiction'" (Tooley). This 1837 edition is illustrated with 17 hand-colored aquatint plates by Henry Alken and T.J. Rawlins with original hand-coloring in full page format!

MOOR, John Henry.
Singapore: [printed at the Mission Press,] 1837. Quarto. Original red cloth-backed blue paper covered boards, expertly rebacked at an early date, vestige of the original label. Housed in a custom brown morocco-backed green cloth solander box. Professional paper restoration to folding maps. Slight wear to extremities, boards rubbed and soiled, text-block variably foxed and toned, green pigment on the maps, probably verdigris from the tone, has struck through to the verso quite strongly, other colours remarkably bright; a very good copy indeed. Large hand-coloured folding map of "The Town and environs of Singapore, drawn by J. B. Tassin, from an actual survey by G. D. Coleman", with five further folding maps, all but one likewise hand-coloured, all lithographed by Tassin in Calcutta. First edition of one of the earliest books published in Singapore, comprising of articles first published in the Singapore Chronicle, Singapore's first newspaper, between 1824 and 1834. The proposed second part was never published. This valuable resource includes articles which would now otherwise be lost, as there are no known surviving copies of the Singapore Chronicle dating from 1824 to 1826. Although reasonably well-held institutionally it is notably scarce in commerce, with just one copy traced at auction. The work provides a detailed account of life in the settlement at that time, as well as travel routes throughout East Asia, trading reviews of various ports and towns, and details of two crucial agreements, the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 17 March 1824 and the Treaty of Friendship and Alliance … [Click Below for Full Description]
