        Almanach de Gotha pour l'année 1837 - INSCRIBED PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE DOWAGER, QUEEN ADELAIDE TO QUEEN VICTORIA TWO WEEKS AFTER HER SUCCESSION TO THE THRONE

      Chez Justus Perthes, Gotha 1837 - Inscribed "To the Queen/from her grateful + affect[tionate] Adel[k?]chen / July 6. 1837." Publisher's red cloth gilt with the armorial crest of Ferdinand I of Austria. 4 1/4 x 2 3/4 inches (11 x 7.5 cm); vi, [48], 290, 92, [2] pp., with engraved portraits, pages edged in gilt. Light wear, overall fine. This is a remarkable copy of the chief European Royal Genealogical Reference, inscribed to the newly ascended Queen herself, listed as Princess on page 23, who had turned 18 on 24 May 1837 and who, on 20 June 1837, when William IV died at the age of 71, became Queen of the United Kingdom and the first Empress of India of the British Raj from 1 May 1876, until her death. At 63 years and 7 months, her reign as the Queen lasted longer than that of any other British monarch, and is the longest of any female monarch in history. Her reign is known as the Victorian era, and was a period of industrial, cultural, political, scientific, and military progress within the United Kingdom.Princess Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen became Queen Consort of the United Kingdom and Hanover and spouse of William IV. The city of Adelaide in Australia was named after her. Though her efforts to be close to her niece Princess Victoria were frustrated by Victoria's mother, the Dowager Duchess of Kent, the newly ascended Queen viewed Adelaide with kindness and her firstborn child, Victoria Adelaide Mary Louise, took her second name from her great-aunt, who was also the child's godmother. "Adelchen," the apparently diminutive, affectionate form of "Adelaide" or the German "Adelheid" has further roots in the culture of German nobility. In Charlotte Mary Yonge's 1884 "History of Christian names" there is a discussion of the daughter names "Adelchen" or "Adelheit" as being related to the old English "AEtheling" for "son," adding further that the included word "heid," as in "the 'hood' or 'head' at the end of our [English] abstract nouns" suggests "that the princess royal of each little Frankish duchy or county was thus the 'Nobleness' thereof." (p. 411)Historically, The Almanach de Gotha book has listed the Ruling Imperial, Royal and Princely Families of Europe, and was continuously produced for nearly 181 years until the Soviet occupation of the former Saxon Duchy of Saxe-Coburg und Gotha in 1944. The Almanach provided detailed facts and statistics on nations of the world, including their reigning and formerly reigning houses, those of Europe being more complete than those of other continents. It also named the highest incumbent officers of state, members of the diplomatic corps, and Europe's upper nobility with their families and was notable for the breadth and precision of its information on royalty and nobility compared to other Almanachs. First published by Justus Perthes in the German Duchy of Saxe-Coburg und Gotha in 1763, the Court which in the mid 1800's produced Prince Albert as consort for Queen Victoria, the Gotha's own familiar crown was stamped on the cover of what was to become the ultimate power register of the ruling classes. We gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Helen Rappaport, author of "Queen Victoria: A Biographical Companion," in the cataloging of this item. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Ornithologist's Guide to The Islands of Orkney and Shetland.

      by the Author., 1837. 1st. Ed.. pp.x, [2], 128 with lithographic plate and 2 folding maps. 8vo. With plate and map bound at rear. Contents very clean and in near fine condition. Bound in original blue cloth boards in near fine condition. Scarce. This book describes Hull taxidermist and natural history dealer Robert Dunn's visits to Orkney and Shetland in the years 1831-35, and includes a record of the birds he encountered. We no longer look on birds in the way that Dunn did - he was a serious collector of birds and their eggs. For the facsimile of this work, published by Peregrine Books (2007), Martin Limbert wrote that it is 'a window into those times, an essential reference for anyone, whether birder, naturalist, historian or island-goer, interested in the Northern Isles of seventeen decades ago'.

        Journeys into the Moon, Several Planets and the Sun. History of a Female Somnambulist, of Weilheim on the Teck, in the Kingdom of Wuertemberg, in the Years 1832 and 1832

      Philadelphia: Vollmer and Haggenmacher, 1837. First edition in English of this account of a young woman's somnambulant journeys to planets across the solar system, first published in German in 1834. More than mere sleepwalking, somnambulism describes the wanderings of a sleeping or hypnotized mind. Some readers considered the revelations experienced in these trance states to be visions of higher truths, while others dismissed them as trickery. Aware of the skeptics, the anonymous author of Journeys into the Moon, Several Planets, and the Sun emphasizes the heroine Pauline's exemplary life before her somnambulism developed: "her conduct was without reproach." In this work, Pauline follows an angelic guide through a series of fantastical and astronomical settings, including a populated, fair-climate Moon, and journeys to Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus (an early mention of the newly discovered planet), and even the Sun. "On our Earth the richest and most honored are by far less happy than the lowest of these inhabitants of the Moon." The tone is decidedly religious: the planets are covered in cities with vaguely Biblical names ("Bethusalem," "Jeremia," "Gilliath"), and filled with descriptions of the deceased who have moved on to various "degrees" of "felicity." Pauline encounters Socrates teaching on Venus, Goethe on Uranus. In this sense, the work recalls not only Dante's hierarchical cosmology, but also the contemporary revelations reported by Joseph Smith, founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, such as his 1832 vision of the "degrees of glory" in heaven, including "kingdoms" symbolized by the sun, moon, and stars. Stories of somnambulism, whether induced by hypnosis or naturally occurring, were a major proto-psychological genre and literary influence. Edgar Huntly, The Moonstone and Dracula all feature sleepwalking plots, capitalizing on the eerie associations of somnambulism, while Edgar Allan Poe wrote three stories involving somnambulism and fantastic journeys: "A Tale of the Ragged Mountains," "Mesmeric Revelation," and "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar." Given the date and place of publication, this particular edition was well placed to influence the likes of Poe and his Gothic contemporaries. A scarce and strange female narrative of second sight, part of the rich literature of imaginary voyages in the nineteenth century. Twelvemo, contemporary half sheep over marbled boards, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, all edges speckled black. Early ownership stencil, "Robert Davis / Cooperstown," on front pastedown. Wear to binding at corners and spine, some scattered foxing, pages uniformly toned.
