        Murdered Bride or the Victim of Treachery; A Tale of Horror: (Founded on Recent Facts.)

      London William Emans 1837 - First Edition (?) of this Rare Gothic Novel. Illustrated With Engraved Plates [ANONYMOUS]. The Murdered Bride or the Victim of Treachery; A Tale of Horror: (Founded on Recent Facts.) London: William Emans, 1837. First edition (?). Small quarto (8 3/8 x 5 1/8 inches; 213 x 136 mm). {1]-720 pp. Complete with, engraved frontispiece, additional engraved title-page and six other engraved plates. We believe this to be the first edition of this book. OCLC shows one copy of an edition which states the date [1820] which is at University of Cambridge and it is incomplete. After inspecting an image of the Cambridge copy's title-page, we find it possible that their title-page was trimmed, eliminating the date which falls at the very bottom of the lower margin. When compared to our present copy, all other parts of the title-page are identical, however the Cambridge copy is certainly trimmed closer at the top margin as well. They quote Andrew Block's 1961 bibliography of 'The English novel' (p. 169), recording it from a single bookseller's listing only, which lists an undated edition which is given a conjectural date of [1820]. Because this Cambridge copy is the only one we can find, we can assume that Block is talking about this copy as well. Bookseller Robert Temple also formerly listed a copy of the [1820] edition, which also was incomplete so could potentially also be this same Cambridge copy. OCLC shows only Harvard and The British Library with a copy of this 1837. We can find no other copies of this title at auction in the the past 50 years. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Original parts bound together, with stabmarks. Bound by G.J. Sutton (?) with the small binder label on front endpaper. Spine heavily tooled in gilt in compartments. Green morocco spine label, lettered in gilt. Spine with the name M.N. Bourne in gilt at the foot. All edges marbled. Green endpapers. Some toning to plates and a bit of foxing throughout. Boards a bit rubbed. Previous owner Bruce Ismay's armorial bookplate on front pastedown. Ismay was the managing director and survivor of the Titanic. Overall a very good copy of this extremely rare title. The Murdered Bride or the Victim of Treachery, A Tale of Terror (founded on recent Facts) is a gothic novel presumably based on recent events of the time, but a work of fiction nonetheless. In this story which differs from so many gothic novels of its time, the heroine and her young son die in the final lines of the story. HBS 67342. $3,000 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Felonry of New South Wales: Being a faithful picture of the real romance of life in Botany Bay

      London: For the Author, Whaley and Co, 1837. Octavo, folding map of the Town of Sydney (neatly repaired and mounted on the stub), last two leaves of the addenda neatly repaired, a good copy bound in later quarter morocco. First edition of this controversial book, published in London, and unanimously attacked in Australia as frivolous, slanderous, and prejudiced.The 1830s saw increased friction in New South Wales between colonial conservatives and the liberal governor, Sir Richard Bourke, who introduced a number of reforms that endeared him to the Emancipists, notably a new law allowing former convicts to serve as jurors and criminal cases to be tried by civil juries. Bourke retaliated to the attacks of Mudie and other opponents by depriving them of their Magistracies: "This loss of caste was too much for Mudie, who sold up and returned to England vowing revenge. It came in the form of a hastily written book... 'Felonry', Mudie explained, was his own word, encompassing all of the 'criminal population' of the colony, including the Emancipists, no matter what their wealth or professional standing. It corresponded, he said, to the orders of the old world - 'the tribe of appellatives distinguished by the same termination, as peasantry, tenantry, yeomanry, gentry...&c.' Such people, he argued, were 'for ever infamous... infamous in law... unworthy of future trust'; they and their offspring should be disenfranchised forever..." (Robert Hughes, "The Fatal Shore", 1987, p. 330). Mudie's word has duly made its way into the Oxford English Dictionary.In 1840, Mudie foolishly returned to Sydney, but apparently not sufficient time had elapsed; the son of one of his victims publicly horsewhipped him. Ferguson, 2312.

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

      Rio de Janeiro, J. Villeneuve (sold by Souza & Comp.), 1837. - vii, 214 pp. 4°, recent dark green full morocco. Copious marginal notes and 6 manuscript leaves by Capistrano de Abreu bound in; also 4 manuscript leaves in another hand. ---- Second complete edition and first Brazilian edition of a work first 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 (12 chapters) with the cultivation, curing and export of tobacco; the third (17 chapters) with the recently discovered gold mines in Minas Geraes; and the fourth (6 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.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 Afons [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Rapport sur l'isolement absolu des prisonniers address? par le directeur des travaux de la maison de detention de Gand au gouvernement provincial de la Flandre Orientale en octobre 1837

      s.e., s.l. 1837 - Manoscritto (cm. 21 x 31), pp. (24). Indebolimento del marg. inf. dovuto ad umidit? Importante manoscritto redatto in chiara grafia, opera del Supervisore del carcere di Gand e indirizzato al 'gouvernement provincial' della Fiandra Orientale. Questa rilevante memoria si inserisce nell'ampio dibattito che si svilupp? tra Europa e Stati Uniti relativamente alla riforma del sistema detentivo. Gand, peraltro, a partire dal 1773, rappresenta il primo esempio francese di carcere a pianta radiale. Questa relazione viene cos? ad anticipare, se non ad ispirare, la circolare del 1840 del Ministro degli interni Duchatel, intitolata Programma per la costruzione delle prigioni, in cui adotta ufficialmente il principio architettonico dei piani convergenti al centro e del dispositivo cellulare. Il supervisore Bayet introduce la relazione descrivendo la situazione di Gand, in cui la promiscuit?, la poca sorveglianza e il mescolamento tra i sessi fanno s? che domini il vizio. Bayet stabilisce infatti diversi gradi di corruzione a seconda delle sezioni del carcere e attribuisce alla 'maison d'arret' le maggiori responsabilit? nella diseducazione dei detenuti. Sulla base della sua esperienza ritiene poi che il solo isolamento notturno e il lavoro collettivo siano accompagnati da gravi inconvenienti, non superabili se non con l'isolamento totale dagli altri detenuti, tesi peraltro dimostrata dall'alto grado di recidiva: 'la grande corruzione dei condannati non deriva dalla depravazione di qualcuno tra di loro, ma dalla riunione di tutti gli errori e crimini che provocano una fermentazione del male stesso'. L'isolamento non provoca pazzia, come alcuni affermano, al contrario diminuisce la mortalit?, elimina il problema della disciplina e delle punizioni, risolve molti problemi di sorveglianza. Inoltre Bayet sostiene che l?isolamento vada accompagnato dal lavoro e porta ad esempio lo stato di torpore in cui versano tutto il giorno i detenuti di Gand messi in punizione in isolamento a pane ed acqua, stato dannoso ma anche obbligato dal fatto che le celle non possano contenere che il letto. A questo proposito propone per il nuovo stabilimento la fornitura di amache che, durante il giorno, possano permettere al detenuto di lavorare. In pratica, il detenuto risulta obbligato a rispettare le regole, trova piacere nel lavoro, unico suo possibile svago, ed ? costretto a riflettere sul suo passato. Il sistema proposto per Gand ? un ibrido tra i modelli americani di Auburn e Filadelfia, descritti da Tocqueville e Beaumont nel loro studio sul sistema penitenziario negli Stati Uniti del 1832. Diciassette anni dopo, nel 1854, Ducpetiaux, nell'Avant projet de loi sur le regime des prisons, pubblica la relazione di quanto, sulla base di questo studio, venne successivamente realizzato: l'esperimento cominci? nel 1840 con 36 celle cellulari per 36 prigionieri. Nell'arco dei 14 anni di osservazione, il risultato fu il raddoppio dei decessi nel carcere cellulare e un incremento generale dei decessi nel corso degli anni a causa dell?indurimento del regime carcerario. Praticamente il dato finale attesta che nel caso di carcerazione cellulare occorrerebbe dimezzare la durata della pena 'la peine de l?isolement continu [.] est au moins deux fois plus severe de quelle de l'emprisonnement en reunion'. Il supervisore Bayet per? non si scoraggia, individua nella realt? di Gand problemi legati alla sorveglianza, al cibo, al riscaldamento e alla ventilazione, inoltre riconosce che i detenuti scelti per questo regime fossero perlopi? deboli di salute e comunque maldisposti. Nonostante ci?, la conclusione di Bayet ? sostanzialmente positiva: i casi di decesso, malattia, alienazione, suicidio sono stati molti ma, ? anche vero, che avrebbero potuto essere molti di pi?!

The 25 volumes of the complete works are enriched, frontispiece, Chateaubriand portrait from Girodet and 28 steel engravings from Johannot. Memoirs from beyond the grave are the first issue and have much warning and the list of subscribers that were removed thereafter. Our set is enriched with a unique beautiful letter to his friend and executor Baron Jean-Guillaume Hyde de Neuville. This letter, mounted upside tab of the half-title page of the first volume of memoirs from beyond -Falls, dictated to his secretary and signed by Hyacinthe Pilorge Chateaubriand dated October 28, 1831. "[...] I will deliver a final battle, and fpring, I will take the path of exile, because decidedly I will neither pay taxes to Louis Philippe, nor live on it. I will find myself immersed in new tribulations, but it is our role to you and me and force is to accept our destiny. » Hyde de Neuville, regularly quoted in the memoirs from beyond the grave, is among the most loyal friends Chateaubriand. It will be one of its four executors, is harnessing including the difficult task of publishing the grave Memoirs of attempting to enforce the author's wishes. An ardent defender of legitimacy from his youth, friend Cadoudal as Malesherbes, conspirator exiled by Napoleon, Hyde meets Chateaubriand in 1807 in Cadiz. Immediate friendship links the two men. In 1820, Hyde tries vainly to offer Chateaubriand an annuity to overcome its financial troubles. Very politically engaged, they co-opt another in various positions of ministers or ambassadors. After the dismissal of Charles X, the two men are at the service of the Duchesse De Berry and arrested together in July 1832 for threatening state security. In 1836, Hyde founded with other friends Chateaubriand a company to buy the rights of memoirs from beyond the grave and publish them after the death of the author according to his wishes. Advice and support Chateaubriand in all his affairs, Hyde has with him a touching correspondence (published in 1929) which reflected their long and lasting friendship. "Chateaubriand tells her melancholy, her despairs, regrets of an ancient world that both had known his worries about the publication of his works" (in John William Hyde de Neuville (1776-1857) and conspirator diplomat by Françoise Watel). In the unpublished letter dated 28 October 1831 that enriches our copy Chateaubriand refers to his whereabouts between Paris and Switzerland for the publication of his defense of Charles X threatened with banishment. In a few words full of complicity, he evokes the vain and courageous struggle of Hyde and himself to save their world illustrated by this quote from Racine stressed: "We will not tell you that" Benjamin is feeble, and Judah without virtue. '" with no doubt, Hyde knows the context of this verse taken from Athaliah, "Well what can I in the midst of this people killed / Benjamin is without force, and without virtue Judah / The day of their lives off King race / extinguished all the fire of their ancient boldness. » Exceptional collection of works by Chateaubriand in uniform binding time, composed, among others, of the original edition of the grave Memoirs enriched with an important and original autograph letter signed. Superb example of the dissolution of a world as much as literary resistance of greatest French writer of the time. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition collective pour les Œuvres complètes en 25 volumes chez Furne & Gosselin.

Les 25 volumes des œuvres complètes sont enrichies, en frontispice, du portrait de Chateaubriand d'après Girodet et de 28 gravures sur acier d'après Johannot. Les Mémoires d'outre-tombe sont en première émission et possèdent bien l'avertissement et la liste des souscripteurs qui furent supprimés par la suite. Notre ensemble est enrichi d'une belle lettre inédite adressée à son grand ami et exécuteur testamentaire le baron Jean-Guillaume Hyde de Neuville. Cette lettre, montée sur onglet en tête de la page de faux-titre du premier volume des Mémoires d'outre-tombe, est dictée à son secrétaire Hyacinthe Pilorge et signée par Chateaubriand en date du 28 octobre 1831.   « [...] Je vais livrer un dernier combat, et au printems, je reprendrai le chemin de l'exil, car bien décidément je ne veux ni payer l'impôt à Louis-Philippe, ni vivre son sujet. Je vais me retrouver plongé dans de nouvelles tribulations, mais c'est notre rôle à vous et à moi et force est d'accepter notre destinée. »   Hyde de Neuville, régulièrement cité dans les Mémoires d'outre-tombe, compte parmi les plus fidèles amis de Chateaubriand. Il sera un de ses quatre exécuteurs testamentaires, s'attelant notamment à la difficile tâche de publier les Mémoires d'outre-tombe en tentant de faire respecter les vœux de l'auteur. Ardent défenseur de la Légitimité depuis sa jeunesse, ami de Cadoudal comme de Malesherbes, conspirateur exilé par Napoléon, Hyde rencontre Châteaubriand en 1807 à Cadix. Une amitié immédiate lie les deux hommes. En 1820, Hyde tente vainement d'offrir à Chateaubriand une rente pour pallier ses ennuis financiers. Très engagés politiquement, ils se cooptent mutuellement à différents postes de ministres ou d'ambassadeurs. Après la destitution de Charles X, les deux hommes se mettent au service de la Duchesse De Berry et sont arrêtés ensemble en juillet 1832 pour atteinte à la sûreté de l'État. En 1836, Hyde fonde avec d'autres amis de Chateaubriand une société pour acheter les droits des Mémoires d'outre-tombe et les publier après la mort de l'auteur selon ses vœux.   Conseil et soutien de Chateaubriand dans toutes ses affaires, Hyde entretient avec lui une émouvante correspondance (publiée en 1929) où transparaît leur longue et indéfectible amitié. « Chateaubriand lui confie ses mélancolies, ses désespérances, ses regrets d'un ancien monde que tous les deux avaient connus, ses soucis quant à la publication de ses ouvrages » (in Jean-Guillaume Hyde de Neuville : (1776-1857) conspirateur et diplomate, par Françoise Watel). Dans la lettre inédite datée du 28 octobre 1831 qui enrichit notre exemplaire, Chateaubriand fait référence à ses allées et venues entre Paris et la Suisse pour la publication de sa Défense de Charles X menacé de bannissement. En quelques mots plein de complicité, il évoque le vain et courageux combat mené par Hyde et lui-même pour sauver leur conception du monde illustrée par cette citation soulignée de Racine : « On ne dira pas de vous que "Benjamin est sans force, et Juda sans vertu" ». à n'en pas douter, Hyde connait le contexte de ce vers tiré d'Athalie : « Eh que puis-je au milieu de ce peuple abattu/Benjamin est sans force, et Juda sans vertu/ Le jour qui de leur Roi vit éteindre la race/ Éteignit tout le feu de leur antique audace. »   Exceptionnel ensemble des œuvres de Chateaubriand, en reliure uniforme du temps, composé, entre autre, de l'édition originale des Mémoires d'outre-tombe enrichie d'une importante et inédite lettre autographe signée. Superbe témoignage de la dissolution d'un monde autant que de la résistance littéraire du plus grand écrivain français du temps.

        Journey of Discovery to Port Phillip ... bound with three other Sydney-printed works in a volume from Hovell's library

      Sydney: various printers, 1836-, 1837. Quarto, three printed works bound together with an engraved card as a single volume for William Hovell's personal library, with his armorial bookplate; some foxing and early repairs (see below); variation in page heights, but in good condition in original quarter cloth and boards. The explorer's own copy. A remarkable volume from the explorer William Hovell's library, with his bookplate, containing two important colonial narratives, one of them the account of his own great journey, the Journal of Discovery to Port Phillip New South Wales in the years 1824 and 1825 published in Sydney in 1837. The other is Brockett's extremely rare Narrative of a Voyage from Sydney to Torres' Straits with its extraordinary illustrations by Fernyhough.There are altogether four works in the volume, as follows:1. Sixth Annual Report of the Sydney College (Stephens and Stokes, 1836). Folding engraved frontispiece by Carmichael, 17 pp., early annotation to subscribers' list, some foxing and offsetting. Ferguson, 2187;2. Illustrated broadside on card for the opening of Lansdowne Bridge on 26 January 1836: "Drawn from nature and on stone by Chas. Rodius"; old folds and rather heavy foxing;3. BROCKETT, William Edward. Narrative of a Voyage from Sydney to Torres' Straits (Henry Bull, 1836). With in total 29 figures on 12 plates (including frontispiece portrait) all by Fernyhough, some staining. Ferguson, 2095; not recorded by Butler, 'Printed Images';4. BLAND, William, Ed. Journey of Discovery to Port Phillip... Second Edition (James Tegg, 1837). Folding frontispiece map by R. Clint of Sydney with small repairs to original folds, title-page and first 3 leaves with early rather crude repairs to the gutters. Australian Rare Books, 110; Ferguson, 2234.The last of these items is technically the second but effectively the first (and certainly the earliest obtainable) edition of the narrative of the expedition by Hovell and the explorer Hamilton Hume overland to Port Phillip. An earlier version sent out privately by Bland had been a proof or draft version that he subsequently abandoned and reworked into this printing (the few surviving examples of the earlier version, mostly incomplete, are now almost all in institutions). The fact that Hovell himself owned this second edition is further evidence of its contemporary status as the authoritative edition of this important book, which describes the most immediately important of all the overland trail-blazing explorations. Hovell and Hume opened up the overland route from Sydney to Port Phillip: the specific effects of the expedition are highly evident today and will remain so for the imaginable future as we follow the Hume Highway between Sydney and Melbourne.

        The Graham Journal of Health and Longevity. Vol. I, No. 1 (April 4, 1837) - Vol. 1, No. 38 (December 26, 1837)

      Boston: David Campbell/George P. Oakes, Printer, 1837. Bound in one volume, vi, [2], 304 pages. Index. First edition thus. A specially issued bound volume of the first volume (of three), complete in thirty-eight issues, of this journal edited in Boston by David Campbell and "designed to illustrate by facts, and sustain by reason and principles the science of human life as taught by Sylvester Graham." Sylvester Graham began his career as a temperance reformer but soon expanded his efforts to control the affairs of the stomach to beyond alcohol. Against the backdrop of fear that the European cholera epidemic would soon arrive on American shores, Graham developed a theory of healthy living which included well-ventilated rooms, exercise, and regular baths, as well as a vegetarian diet. The diet consisted mostly of fruits and vegetables and bread from unbolted flour or coarse ground grain. Graham had other, more controversial, theories as well, about sexual self-restraint and the connection between spirituality and physiology. His lectures frequently caused a commotion, including an 1847 altercation during which "a mob of Boston bakers attacked Graham while he was extemporizing on the evils of consuming commercially produced bread and the dietary value of unbolted flour. The riotous bakers were subdued when Graham's followers shoveled slaked lime from the windows of the lecture hall onto the crowd below." (American National Biography). But it is the Graham Cracker, our modern version of which is loosely based on his bread from coarsely-ground grain, for which he is best remembered today. With a small blind-stamp of the Iowa State Library to the title page. In original publisher's edge worn brown, patterned cloth. Early ownership signature to preliminary blank. Good.

        Nuevo arte de cocina, sacado de la escuela de la experiencia económica, su autor D. J. S. P. de B.

      Barcelona, Librería de J. Solá, calle dela Bocaria 1837 - 8º (14,6 x 10 cm.) 128 p. inc. port. Encuadernación del siglo XX en pleno chagreen verde, plancha gofrada en ambos planos, filete y hierros dorados, lomo con nervios, hierros dorados y doble tejuelo rojo. La importancia del trabajo de Juan Altamiras estriba en que representa la cocina española justo antes de que se viera influenciada por la cocina francesa posteriormente a lo largo del siglo XIX. Juan Altamiras o de Altamiras, monje franciscano aragonés, escribió en el siglo XVIII su “Nuevo arte de cocina”, en el que a diferencia de otros libros de la época, se centra en platos sencillos y sobrios propios de la cocina popular. Por ello, además de recetas, Altamiras incluye algunos métodos para aprovechar mejor los recursos e ingredientes en la cocina. “A mitad del siglo XVIII Juan Altamiras, cocinero y fraile, seudónimo de fray Raimundo Gómez, franciscano nacido en La Almunia de Doña Godina según afirma Félix Latassa (1735 – 1805) en su Biblioteca Nueva de escritores aragoneses, que profesó en diferentes conventos aragoneses, pensaba en revolucionar la gastronomía con una no pequeña dosis de humor añadida a las recetas en un libro que sin duda puede conceptuarse como un pequeño manual de nuevas formas de preparar los alimentos y administrar la cocina en un convento zaragozano.” [Academia Aragonesa de Gastronomía] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Voice of Warning and Instruction of the Faith and Doctrine of the Church of the Latter Day Saints, Commonly Called Mormons

      New York: Printed by W. Sandford, 1837. First Edition. 216 pp. [14.5 cm] Original tan diced cloth. Titles gilt stamped on backstrip (faint). Gentle wear to boards with some spotting and rubbing. Internally clean. This is an unsophisticated copy of this major LDS work. Parley Pratt left on a mission to the east coast in the summer of 1837. Upon arriving in New York he found few willing listeners, when they opened the door at all. Filled with inspiration he locked himself in his room. After almost two months Pratt had finished what has become one of the major works of Mormonism. Pratt's Voice of Warning was not the first LDS publication to lay out the tenets and theology of the fledgling Mormon Faith, but it was the first to specifically lay out the differences of Mormonism and other Christian Faiths. One of the most important and early volumes of Mormon doctrine from the 1830's. According to Crawley: "...it erected a standard for all future Mormon pamphleteers by setting down a formula for describing Mormonism's basic doctrines and by listing biblical proof texts, arguments, and examples which would be used by others for the next century".

        The Philosophy of Animal Magnetism. Together With The System of Manipulating Adopted to Produce Ecstasy and Somnambulism... By a Gentleman of Philadelphia

      Philadelphia: Merrihew and Gunn, 1837., 1837. First Edition. 12mo. 84pp. Bound in original printed paper boards professionally rebacked with linen. In a quarter leather tailor made clamshell box with marbled paper sides. Boards worn but strong and handsome, internally clean and fresh with very slight occasional spotting. Attributed most convincingly to Poe by Joseph Jackson in 1928. The theory of animal magnetism became the basis of treatment in Europe and the United States that was based on non-verbal elements such as gaze, passes of the hands near the body, mental elements such as will and intention, and on occasion the physical "laying on of hands." It was popular in the nineteenth century, with a strong cultural impact. From some of the practices of animal magnetism branched out hypnotism, spiritualism, New Thought, so-called "magnetic healing", and parapsychological research.

        The Victims of Whiggery; Being A Statement of the Persecutions Experienced by the Dorchester Labourers; Their Trial, Banishment, &c. &c.; Also Reflections upon the present system of Transportation; With an account of Van Dieman's Land.

      Effingham Wilson, circa, London 1837 - Octavo, 32pp., a very good uncut copy in later polished half navy calf, a little worn at extremities; from the Ingleton collection, with bookplate. Crucial publication in the history of trade unionism. Third edition of Loveless' important pamphlet on transportation to Van Diemen's Land, itself a pivotal document in the history of trade unionism.George Loveless (1797-1874) was a Dorchester labourer and Tolpuddle martyr. In the early 1830s he represented the Dorchester agricultural labourers in discussions with local farmers, who agreed to raise wages, however the deal went sour and Loveless and his colleagues formed the Friendly Society of Agricultural Labourers, a sort of trade union. While unionising itself was not illegal, it was ruled illegal to have members bound to the Society by 'unlawful oaths', legalese which led to the conviction of Loveless and five others in March 1834. Each was sentenced to seven years transportation to Australia.Loveless arrived in Van Diemen's Land on 4 September of the same year. Initially assigned to work in irons on the roads, a meeting with Governor Arthur led to him being reassigned to work on the Governor's farm. He was later employed by Major William de Gillern at Glen Ayr, near Richmond, who allowed him the privilege of reading his newspapers. Early in September 1836 Loveless was reading the London Dispatch where he learnt of the campaign to release the Dorchester labourers and the free pardons issued to them. Some months previously, Loveless had been persuaded to write to ask his wife to join him in the colony, when offered a free passage to England he refused to accept it until certain that she had not already sailed. He finally set sail for England on 29 January 1837, some time before his companions.The last major section of this pamphlet is an excellent description of the system of transportation, with lengthy reflections on conditions aboard transports and the dangers of the voyage. Loveless finishes by concluding that 'Van Dieman's Land is a fine-looking country' even if it is not the 'garden of Eden for emigrants that the deluded people of England imagine.'.

        Romeo und Julia, beide tot, werden entdeckt.

      - Bleistift, wohl um 1837, auf grautonigem Velin. 21:32,7 cm. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß der Familie Fellner, Frankfurt am Main. 1837 verlegte der Münchner Kunstverein als Jahresgabe nach Peter von Cornelius’ 1813 entstandener Zeichnung gleichen Themas einen Kupferstich, gestochen von Eugen Eduard Schaeffer (1802-1871), der Fellner bekannt gewesen sein muß (vgl. Unter Glas und Rahmen. Druckgraphik der Romantik aus den Beständen des Landesmuseums Mainz und aus Privatbesitz. Mainz/ Nürnberg/Lübeck 1993, Nr. 57 mit Abb.). Bereits während seines Jurastudiums 1817-1824 in Heidelberg und Göttingen hat sich der 1825 in seiner Heimatstadt nur für kurze Zeit als Advokat tätige Fellner autodidaktisch zum Maler ausgebildet. Im Oktober 1825 ging er zum Kunststudium nach München, wo ihn vornehmlich Peter von Cornelius (1783-1867) anregte. Freundschaftliche Kontakte pflegte er mit Moritz von Schwind (1804-1871) und den Dichtern Ludwig Auerbach (1840-1882) und Justus Kerner (1786-1862). 1831 ließ er sich in Stuttgart nieder, wo er bis zu seinem Tode lebte. Fellner zeichnete sich besonders auf den Themengebieten der Geschichte, Sage und Dichtung aus, die er mit unerschöpflicher Phantasie zeichnerisch variantenreich verarbeitete, wobei er bewußt Stilmerkmale der altdeutschen Kunst verwendete. Ein Teil seines zeichnerischen Nachlasses befindet sich heute im Städelschen Kunstinstitut, Frankfurt am Main, auch das Goethe-Museum in Düsseldorf besitzt Arbeiten des Künstlers.

        Twice-Told Tales

      Boston: American Stationers 1837 - FIRST EDITION of Hawthorne’s second published book, a classic of American literature. From the day of publication this collection of nineteen tales brought Hawthorne fame. “Of Mr. Hawthorne’s Tales we would say emphatically, that they belong to the highest region of Art–an Art subservient to genius of a very lofty order the style is purity itself. Force abounds. High imagination gleams from every page We know of few compositions which the critic can more honestly commend than these ‘ Twice-Told Tales.’ As Americans, we feel proud of the book” (Edgar Allan Poe). Hawthorne’s title, Twice-Told Tales, was based on a line from Shakespeare’s Life and Death of King John: “Life is as tedious as a twice-told tale, / Vexing the dull ear of a drowsy man.” The tales are “twice-told” because Hawthorne had published them individually in magazines and annuals before collecting them in this, his first published book. “To this little work we would say,‘Live ever, sweet, sweet book.’ It comes from the hand of a man of genius. Everything about it has the freshness of morning and of May these tales are national in their character exciting beauty of his style, as clearasrunningwatersare”(H.W.Longfellow).

Only very minor traces of foxing to the large folded map, otherwise thsi is the best example of this work we ever have dealt with. From the library of Henry A. Cowper, with his bookplate to all three volumes (Motto: "Tuum Est"). Samuel Lewis (c.1782 ?- 1865) was the editor and publisher of topographical dictionaries and maps of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. The aim of the texts was to give in 'a condensed form', a faithful and impartial description of each place. The firm of Samuel Lewis and Co. was based in London. Samuel Lewis the elder died in 1865. His son of the same name predeceased him in 1862. A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland First published in 1837 in two volumes, with an accompanying atlas, it marked a new and significantly higher standard in such accounts of Ireland. Apart from The Parliamentary Gazetteer of Ireland published in 1845, it has not been superseded. The first edition is available online. A second edition was published in 1842. In the 1837 preface, the editor noted that: "The numerous county histories, and local descriptions of cities, towns, and districts of England and Wales, rendered the publication of their former works, in comparison with the present, an easy task. The extreme paucity of such works, in relation to Ireland, imposed the necessity of greater assiduity in the personal survey, and proportionately increased the expense." Lewis relied on the information provided by local contributors and on the earlier works published such as Coote's Statistical Survey (1801), Taylor and Skinner's Maps of the Road of Ireland (1777), Pigot's Trade Directory (1824) and other sources. He also used the various parliamentary reports and in particular the census of 1831 and the education returns of the 1820s and early 1830s. Local contributors were given the proof sheets for final comment and revision. The names of places are those in use prior to the publication of the Ordnance Survey Atlas in 1838. Distances are in Irish miles (the statute mile is 0.62 of an Irish mile). The dictionary gives a unique picture of Ireland before the Great Famine. (Wikipedia)
