      London: Chapman and Hall, 1837. - "What was over couldn't be begun,and what couldn't be cured must be endured"First Edition 'Pickwick' Bound from the Original Parts by The Hampstead BinderyDICKENS, Charles. The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club. With Forty-Three Illustrations, by R. Seymour and Phiz. London: Chapman and Hall, 1837.First edition in book form of Charles Dickens’s first novel. Bound from the original parts with the original wrappers and some of the advertisements bound in at the end of each volume.Two octavo volumes (8 5/8 x 5 7/16 inches; 220 x 138 mm.). [iii] - [xiv], [1, directions to the binder], [1, errata], 306; [i-ii], 307-609, [1, blank] pp. The half-title has been bound at the front of the second volume. Forty-three engraved plates by Seymour, Buss, and "Phiz" (including frontispiece and vignette title), with the Seymour plates from the first steels and the "Phiz" plates from early steels, all without titles or imprints. The two Phiz plates that replaced the original Buss plates are also present making a total of forty-five engraved plates. All errata uncorrected. Bound ca. 1910 in full green morocco by The Hampstead Bindery (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-ins. Covers decoratively bordered with gilt flowers and stems, spines with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt board-edges, dark green morocco liners, papier vèlin endleaves, top edge gilt. With the original nineteen wrappers (not all first state) from the original parts issue bound in together with several of the 'advertisements' including some of the Pickwick Advertiser. Bookplates of Edward Drummond and Florence Scott Libbey, and blind stamp of M. Scott Chapin on first blank leaves.Bound from the original monthly parts, with stab-holes present in the inner margins of gatherings. Text with the vast majority of the internal flaws listed by Walter Smith and the following Hatton and Cleaver first issue points: "S. Veller" uncorrected on p. 342; "this friends" on p. 400; the "F" in "OF" imperfect in the headline on p. 432. First edition of Dickens’s first novel, a publishing phenomenon which transformed the obscure journalist into England’s most famous author in a matter of months. The serial was originally intended to be primarily a vehicle for the cartoons of Robert Seymour, until he committed suicide after the first number was published. Robert William Buss then took over, but he was inexperienced in steel engraving and had to be fired. The last choice, Hablot Knight Browne ("Phiz"), was to be Dickens’s chosen collaborator for the next two decades. Phiz illustrated Parts IV-XX, re-engraved the Seymour plates, and entirely replaced the Buss plates for later issues. "The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club originally appeared in twenty numbers, bound in nineteen monthly parts, the last part forming a double number, from April 1836-November 1837, except for a lapse of one month—June 1837—when Part 15 was deferred. It was published in book form on November 17, 1837" (Smith)."Reprints of the monthly parts were clothed in wrappers distinctly at variance with those of the earliest issues, considerable differences in detail and advertisement matter arising, and apart from the first issues of Parts 1 to 8, no less than 13 variants for re-issues of parts 1 to 15 were printed and circulated in the first seventeen months." (Hatton & Cleaver, p. 24).The Hampstead Bindery was founded by Frank Karslake in 1898. It was the brother organization of the Guild of Women-Binders which was also founded by Karslake. At one time it had a staff of seven including Alfred De Sauty, Harold Karslake and P.A. Savoldelli. As announced in its prospectus: "Its workmen are professionals of great experience in the best English and Continental ateliers. Every book that is bound is never repeated unless ordered". The men of the Hampstead Bindery apparently trained many of the women, who were culled from such groups as the Edinburgh Social Union, the Kirkby Lonsdale [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Philosophy of Natural History

      London: Scott, Webster & Geary, 1837. Binding lightly rubbed, very good overall.. Duodecimo, frontispiece and engraved title-page; contemporary roan with gilt to spine and boards. An attractive fore-edge painting based upon the famous Sydney Cove view engraved by Edward Dayes. This image, transmitted through various forms (from oil on canvas to engraving to fore-edge painting) is believed to be the work of convict artist Thomas Watling. Engravings by Dayes after originals by Watling feature in the First Fleet accounts of Collins and Hunter, and are now iconic Australiana images. The present for-edge rendition is skillfully executed, painted under the gilding and only to be revealed only when the pages are gently fanned. An old clipping from a booksellers catalogue advertising this book (circa 1930) notes the Sydney view, and the pastedown bears the bookplate of New Zealand book collector and art critic E. C. Simpson.

        Two ALS sent from Sydney to George Birnie in England

      Sydney, 1837. Both with old folds and both damaged where originally opened; otherwise very good.. Two autograph letters on different paper stock (the first 230 x 190, the second 200 x 320 mm.). Two revealing letters written by a prominent woman trader regarding life in Sydney and with much on the difficulties being endured by her husband, who had been declared insane in 1825. James and Martha Matilda Birnie both arrived in New South Wales in 1809 on the Mary Ann, where James was to kick off his career as the local agent for his brother Alexander Birnie. James Birnie worked as a whaler and sealer, but also began to speculate in other trading ventures, and the couple became reasonably prominent in Sydney, particularly the society of religious leaders including Samuel Marsden, Bishop Broughton and the Hassalls. The Birnies took up some large land grants but James developed serious mental health problems, being pronounced insane around 1825. With her husband incapacitated Martha Matilda was called on to run most of their affairs.The present pair of letters are written by Martha Matilda to her nephew George Birnie in London, and show that Birnie was still well-connected with many of the religious and reforming figures in Sydney. The first letter starts with a charming description of how her husband James is in improving health, reading and walking out, and that his old acquaintance are pleased by "the sweet change in him, in his advanced age". Much of the letter is taken up with her description of the receiving and sending of all manner of seeds: she has had "garden seeds" from England, and returns the favour with a "tin box" full of local seeds including those of the "Moreton Bay Chestnut" and the "Norfolk Pine" (the letter is still early enough for these to have been interesting and valuable acquisitions, and young George is evidently a keen gardener). The second letter is full of Birnie's comments on the small society of Quakers, noting the very good work being done by Daniel Wheeler and his son, as well as the famous visit of James Backhouse and George Washington Walker. Birnie makes the comment that she wishes that Elizabeth Fry, the social and prison reformer, would actually visit Sydney. In a postscript she adds that "our dear old friend Mr Marsden "is gone to see what benefit he can be for good to the New Zealanders at his advance age, upwards of seventy… We live in great friendship with each other which is truly pleasant in this place."

        Cultura e opulencia do Brazil, por suas drogas e minas ….

      Rio de Janeiro, J. Villeneuve (sold by Souza & Comp.), 1837.. 4°, twentieth-century (ca. 1980) dark green morocco, spine with horizontal fillets in blind, raised bands in six compartments, short author in gilt in second compartment from head, short title gilt in fourth compartment, place and date gilt at foot, forest green endleaves. Minor foxing. Half title slightly soiled. All pages have 3 small holes at head, middle, and foot, probably from being stitched together. Nevertheless a neat, clean copy: overall in very good to fine condition. Copious marginal notes and 6 manuscript leaves by Capistrano de Abreu bound in; also 4 manuscript leaves in another hand. vii, 214 pp. *** Second complete edition and first Brazilian edition of a work originally published pseudonymously in Lisbon, 1711. "It is hardly possible to overestimate the importance of Antonil's @Cultura e opulencia do Brasil for the period of which it treats and indeed for many subsequent decades. Every serious modern work which deals with eighteenth-century Brazil has relied on it heavily ..." (Boxer, @Some Literary Sources p. 7). J.H. Rodrigues calls it "um dos maiores livros que se escreveram sobre o Brasil em todos os tempos" (@História da história do Brasil, p. 393), and Borba de Moraes and Berrien state unequivocally that "Nenhuma obra da época colonial supera a de Antonil em exatidão e em objectividade, como nenhum autor, mais do que êle, teve o gosto da descrição minuciosa, feita em linguagem semples, clara e desapaixonada" (p. 496). The first edition was suppressed and Boxer knew of only seven copies, in the national libraries of Paris, Lisbon, Rio de Janeiro (two copies), at the British Library, the University of São Paulo, and in a private collection in Rio de Janeiro. Although part of the work was published by José Mariano da Conceição Veloso in 1800, the whole work did not appear again until this edition of 1837, which was done from a manuscript copy at Rio de Janeiro. It includes an introduction by the Brazilian writer José Silvestre Rebello. @Cultura e opulencia deals first and foremost, but certainly not exclusively, with the agricultural and mineral wealth of Brazil. The first and longest part (36 chapters) deals with the cultivation, refining and exportation of sugar; the second (twelve chapters) with the cultivation, curing and export of tobacco; the third (seventeen chapters) with the recently discovered gold mines in Minas Geraes; and the fourth (six chapters) with cattle ranching and the export of hides and leather. In the course of giving his exacting report of economic conditions, the author also gives much information about social life: for example, the migrations to the gold-mining regions, race relations in Minas Geraes, slavery, mores of hospitality, means of communication, and family structures. The Overseas Councillors, at whose request the work was suppressed, argued that the detailed information given about the gold mines would cause foreigners to try to steal what rightfully belonged to the Portuguese. Portuguese officials did have some grounds for feeling threatened: the publication of @Cultura e opulencia coincided with the final stages of the War of the Spanish Succession, the outbreak of the Guerra dos Mascates in Pernambuco, and the capture and sack of Rio de Janeiro by the French, and came soon after the Guerra dos Emboabas. Even when matters were more stable, however, little information about Minas Geraes was allowed to be published until the early nineteenth century. André João Antonil is the pseudonym of João Antonio Andreoni (1649-1716), a Jesuit born at Lucca, Italy, who travelled to Brazil with P. António Vieira in 1681. He professed at Bahia, before P. Alexandre Gusmão, and took up a position as teacher of rhetoric there; later he served as Rector of the Colégio da Bahia and as Provincial. He strongly disagreed with Vieira on the questions of black and Indian slavery. @Provenance: The manuscript notes in this copy were made by João Capistrano de Abreu, one of Brazil's greatest historians: he "achieved an incomparable eminence in his generation because of his theoretical interpretation, tireless research, creative imagination, special qualities, new capabilities and style" (J.H. Rodrigues, "Capistrano and Brazilian Historiography," in @Perspectives on Brazilian History, ed. E. Bradford Burns, p. 172). The author of @Cultura e opulencia remained unknown until Capistrano solved the puzzle in 1886. His delight at his discovery is recounted in a letter to Afonso de Taunay (excerpts reprinted in J.H. Rodrigues, @História da história do Brasil pp. 395-6). Capistrano intended to produce an edition of the work, which explains the copious notes in the margins and at the end of this copy. However, in the end he left the task to Taunay (Rodrigues, p. 397). *** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 40: "a standard textbook of Brazilian economic history and an obligatory reference book."

        La Sacra Bibbia tradotta in lingua italiana, e commentata da Giovanni Diodati, di nation lucchese. Seconda editione, migliorata ed accrescita. con l’aggiunta de’ Sacri Salmi, messi in rime per lo medesimo

      DIODATI Giovanni, - In folio; sontuosa legatura coeva in piena pelle, dorso a cinque nervi, piatti decorati a secco con angolari e decoro centrale in ottone sbalzato, tracce di fermagli; pp. (4), 837 (Antico Testamento), (1 bianca), 331 (Nuovo Testamento), 148, 68 (Testi apocrifi e Salmi). Antiporta incisa su rame da Abraham Bosse con titolo entro cornice architettonica sormontata da un libro aperto. Marca tipoografica al frontespizio. Tavola dei libri scritturali canonici in principio. Capilettera ornati su legno. Ampie note esegetiche in calce. Consuete bruniture, restauri al margine interno e superiore dell'antiporta, strappo restaurato alle pp. 107/108, ma ottima copia genuina e ben legata. Sul risguardo anteriore libero nota di possesso in retoromanzo di un certo Sebastian Marcadant datata 1837. Al verso dell'antiporta preghiera sempre in retoromanzo ma di mano più antica. SECONDA EDIZIONE INTERAMENTE RIVISTA ED AMPLIATA della Bibbia protestante del Diodati. A questa nuova edizione, che riflette il mutato spirito die tempi (dopo il massacro della Valtellina del 1620 era ormai chiaro che l'Italia non poteva più essere riformata), fu aggiunto un ampio commento, dei sommari ai capitoli e la versione in versi dei Salmi che Diodati aveva pubblicato nel 1631 (I Sacri Salmi messi in rime italiane). "Questa seconda edizione. è una versione dell'età matura che costituisce una vera e propria opera letteraria; il rispetto degli originali, evidenziato dall'accorgimento di segnalare in corsivo le proprie aggiunte, non impedisce al Diodati di usare tutta la ricchezza che la lingua italiana aveva maturato nella fioritura letteraria dei secoli precedenti, dimostrando grande autonomia e padronanza della lingua. Le non poche varianti tra l'edizione del 1607 e quella del 1641 attestano un maggior approfondimento del testo ebraico e la conoscenza di molti sussidi grammaticali ed esegetici, oltre a una maggior cura dello stile. L'ampliamento dell'apparato esegetico dimostra anche il cambiamento del pubblico cui si rivolgeva la sua traduzione: l'edizione del 1641 ha soprattutto un intento catechetico ed è rivolta alle famiglie della Chiesa italiana di Ginevra e a tutte le comunità riformate sparse per il mondo" (I. Zatelli, a cura di, La Bibbia a Stampa da Gutenberg a Bodoni, 1991, Firenze, nr. 132). Il Diodati, membro di una importante famiglia calvinista ginevrina originaria di Lucca, fu professore di teologia e di lingua ebraica a Ginevra. La sua fama è soprattutto legata alla traduzione italiana delle Sacre Scritture (1607 e successive revisioni), che fu tradotta anche in francese nel 1644, condotta direttamente sulle lingue originali. Amico di John Milton e di Paolo Sarpi, compì una missione a Venezia; in quell'occasione sollecitò il distacco dalla Chiesa di Roma e l'adesione al protestantesimo. La sua importantissima versione italiana, aspramente contrastata nei secoli dai cattolici, fu largamente letta ed ammirata dai Valdesi, soprattutto quelli stanziati nelle valli del Piemonte. La traduzione del Diodati rimase in vigore nella Chiesa Valdese sino al 1924, quando fu fatta una revisione rimasta poi la versione ufficiale delle Chiese evangeliche italiane. Per l'importanza che ricoprì nel corso dei secoli e per i pregi di stile, essa viene non infondatamente accostata alla Bibbia inglese di Re Giacomo e alla Bibbia tedesca di Lutero. Darlow e Moule, 5600 ("His pure Italian style is not vitiated by French influence"); N. Bingen, Philausone (1500-1660), nr. 133. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Philosophy of Natural History.

      London: Scott, Webster & Geary, 1837. Duodecimo, frontispiece and engraved title-page; contemporary roan with gilt to spine and boards. An attractive fore-edge painting based upon the famous Sydney Cove view engraved by Edward Dayes. This image, transmitted through various forms (from oil on canvas to engraving to fore-edge painting) is believed to be the work of convict artist Thomas Watling. Engravings by Dayes after originals by Watling feature in the First Fleet accounts of Collins and Hunter, and are now iconic Australiana images. The present for-edge rendition is skillfully executed, painted under the gilding and only to be revealed only when the pages are gently fanned. An old clipping from a booksellers catalogue advertising this book (circa 1930) notes the Sydney view, and the pastedown bears the bookplate of New Zealand book collector and art critic E. C. Simpson. Binding lightly rubbed, very good overall.

A life of Jesus written in the Ottawa language by Baraga, a Michigan-based missionary, published during a visit to Paris to raise funds for the missions. It bears a printed approbation by Frederick Rese, the Bishop of Detroit. The frontispiece map of the Holy Land includes place names in the Ottawa language. Baraga first came to America in 1831, arriving at the Ottawa Indian mission at Arbre Croche (present-day Cross Village, Michigan) the following year where he mastered the Algonquian dialect of the Ottawa tribes. Living amongst Native Americans until his death in 1868, he became known as "the Snowshoe Priest" because of his extensive winter travels on snowshoes among the tribes of Michigan and Wisconsin.

        [Greenland Gyrfalcon] Falco Candicans

      London: [by the Author, 1837. Lithograph, coloured by hand, after J. Wolf and H. C. Richter, printed by Walter. (Slightly trimmed along the right side). A beautiful image from John Gould's The Birds of Great Britain: "A magnificent work with life-like portraits of birds of the British Isles" (Wood). This plate, from what Sacheverell Sitwell called "The most popular of all his works" (Fine Bird Books), shows a new liveliness of treatment that is not present in Gould's earlier works. This improvement is thanks to suggestions made by Joseph Wolf, who drew 57 of the plates and accompanied Gould on an ornithological tour of Scandinavia in 1856. Gould's illustrations were all painstakingly coloured by hand, as he states in his preface: "Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however, is not the case: every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." Cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf. Nissen IVB 372; cf. Sauer 23; cf. Wood p. 365; cf. Zimmer p. 261.

The new and best edition published ten years after James's death, edited by Captain Chamier, RN, additions include an account of the Burmese War and the Battle of Navarino. Originally conceived when James was imprisoned as a British national in the United States when war broke out in 1812 between the two powers, it was first published between 1822 and 1824. This history was for a long time seen as an important reference source with the Navy Records Society publishing an index in 1895. It has been cited by both Patrick O'Brian and C. S. Forester as an important source of information for their novels. The perceived anti-American bias of the book moved Theodore Roosevelt as an undergraduate to write a response published as 'The Naval War of 1812'. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Dioskuren. Für Wissenschaft und Kunst. Schriften in bunter Reihe hrsg. von Theodor Mundt. 2 Bände in 1. XII S., S. 3-340; VIII, 392 S. Marmor. Pappbd d. Z. (Rücken verblasst, Klebespur eines RSchilds) mit RSchild.

      Berlin, Veit und Comp., 1836-1837. - Komplettes Exemplar der berühmten Zeitschrift des Jungen Deutschland, Nachfolgerin der 'Schriften in bunter Reihe' und des verbotenen 'Literarischen Zodiacus', der bereits mit Heft 1 des zweiten Jahrgangs sein Erscheinen einstellen musste. Der Geheime Staatsrat Stägemann war als Mitarbeiter für die neue Zeitschrift, die erst 'Zeitlosen' heißen sollte, bereits gewonnen, als er auf allerhöchsten Befehl seinen Beitrag zurückziehen musste, da „an diesen Schriften (des Jungen Deutschland) ein Makel hafte." Da Stägemanns Sonett bereits auf den Seiten 1-3 gedruckt war und der nächste Beitrag auf S. 4 begann, musste Mundt in größter Eile Ersatz schaffen: Seite 1 wurde weggeschnitten, Seite 3 wurde neu gedruckt mit einem sehr geistreich gewählten Motto Goethes, gegen den ja nicht mal der Zensor etwas haben konnte. Enthält Erstdrucke von Mundt, Laube, Stieglitz, Schefer, E. Gans, Marggraf, Rosenkranz, W. F. Meyern, Varnhagen v. Ense, dem die Vorrede gewidmet ist, Willkomm, Mügge, Maltitz u. a. – Titel verso und letztes Blatt mit Stempel der Fürstenbergischen Hofbibliothek. Erster Band teils etwas stockfleckig. Gutes Exemplar. – Kirchner 10593. Houben II 436 ff ausführlich zu den Schwierigkeiten mit dem Berliner Zensor. Nicht bei Diesch. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
