        The New-York Book Of Poetry

      New York: George Dearborn, 1837. First Edition. Very good in the publisher's original blind stamped and gilt decorated, green cloth covered boards with gilt text on the spine and a gilt decoration on the front board and all edges of the text block gilt. An octavo measuring 8 3/4" by 5 1/4" with a dampness stain across the upper margins of the text block none of which impacts on the print. There is also an early gift inscription at the top edge of the title page with a date of December 25, 1837. The cloth on the spine is beginning to split at the upper three inches of the joint. Despite that issue the binding remains strong and tight. The cloth at the heel of the spine and at the lower tips of the boards showns wear and has worn through in small areas. An anthology of 53 New York poets. This is the first formal appearance, in book form, of Clement Moore's poem: A Visit From St. Nicholas. 253 pages of text illustrated with an engraved title page. Page 215/216 contains Clement C. Moore's poem, From A Father To His Children, After Having Had His Portrait Taken For Them. And, pages 217/218 and 219 contain Moore's more famous poem: A Visit From St. Nicholas. An extremely scarce title in any condition. (BAL 14347; Mitchell, 18)

      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]

        City of the Sultan and Domestic Manners of the Turks, in 1836

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea, and Blanchard, 1837. Hardcover. Very good. First American edition. Two volumes, illustrated, bound in later nineteenth century three-quarter leather over marbled boards. Julia Pardoe (1806-1862) was a prolific poet, novelist, and travel writer. In 1835 she accompanied her father to Constantinople, and "at the time it was felt that no woman apart from Lady Mary Wortley Montagu had acquired so intimate a knowledge of Turkey." This book, written shortly after her return to England, sought to disabuse Europeans of their 'ideal of Oriental mysteriousness, mysticism, and magnificence' (vol. 1, p. 89), offering what was hitherto 'probably the most detailed, most sympathetic description of the Turkish élite' (Melman, 50)" (DNB). The work was quite popular and had been reprinted several times by 1850.

Buchrücken aus Leder, Rückentitel und Rückenvergoldung (bei Band 10-12 fehlend), Buchrückenschilder von Band 1-6 hellgrün, Band 7-9 hellblau, Band 10-12 dunkelgrün) - diese Unterschiede resultieren daher, dass zur damaligen Zeit unterschiedliche Materialien genutzt wurden (wurden die Materialien genutzt, welche zur Verfügung standen), weiteres Indiz hierfür ist, dass marmorierten Buchdeckel von Band 7-12 homogen sind, Band 1-6 different, obwohl hierbei die Buchrückenschilder die gleiche Aufmachung haben, Bände befinden sich in einem sehr guten, dem Alter entsprechenden, Zustand, Buchdeckel marmoriert, Rotschnitt in sehr gutem Zustand, Ecken, Kanten und Buchdeckel und -rücken normal bestossen und berieben, Buchecken aus Leder gefertigt (berieben), feste Gelenke, keine losen oder fehlende Seiten, Buchblöcke fest, Rückenschilder tlw. rissig, Buchrücken von Band 8 am oberen Ende leicht eingerissen, Rücken leicht rissig bei Band 7, nur leichte, normale Altersfleckigkeit (auf wenigen Seiten von Band 11, 12 stärker), keine unangenehmen Gerüche, etc., sehr wenige Seiten weisen kleine Löcher auf, die von einem inaktiven Bücherwurm stammen (kaum erwähnenswert), Bücher stellen im Regal eine Augenweide dar - sehr schöner Erhaltungszustand, Das Hauptwerk enthält auf fast 11.000 Seiten rund 12.000 Stichworte.

        City of the Sultan and Domestic Manners of the Turks, in 1836

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea, and Blanchard, 1837. Hardcover. Very good. First American edition. Two volumes, illustrated, bound in later nineteenth century three-quarter leather over marbled boards. Julia Pardoe (1806-1862) was a prolific poet, novelist, and travel writer. In 1835 she accompanied her father to Constantinople, and "at the time it was felt that no woman apart from Lady Mary Wortley Montagu had acquired so intimate a knowledge of Turkey." This book, written shortly after her return to England, sought to disabuse Europeans of their 'ideal of Oriental mysteriousness, mysticism, and magnificence' (vol. 1, p. 89), offering what was hitherto 'probably the most detailed, most sympathetic description of the Turkish élite' (Melman, 50)" (DNB). The work was quite popular and had been reprinted several times by 1850.

        Le Diwan d'Amro'lkais precede de la vie de ce poete par l'auteur du Kitab El-Aghani, accompagne d'une traduction et de notes par le baron Mac Guckin de Slane [...].

      Paris, Imprimerie Royale, 1837.. Folio (237 x 312 mm). 2 parts in one volume. XXV, (1), 128 pp. (French and Latin text); 50 pp. (Arabic text); central blank. Contemp. half brown hard-grained morocco, raised bands on gilt fleuron spine. Marbled endpapers.. First edition, with the full text in Arabic: an early effort of the Franco-Irish editor. The pre-Islamic Arab poet Imru al-Qays (497-545) from the Kinda is regarded as the greatest writer in Arabic of his time. His Diwan (complete collection of poems), written in a language of impeccable classicism, was collected from the 8th century; it includes 28 to 68 parts according to recensions. - The Irish scholar William McGuckin de Slane (1801-78), a disciple of Silvestre de Sacy, to whom the present work is dedicated, went on to serve as Principal Interpreter of Arabic of the French Army and Professor of Arabic at the Ecole de langues orientales in Paris. It is remarkable the he chose to present a Latin version of these works: he later became known for his translations into French and English of Arab and Persian historians. - Occasional browning and foxing. - GAL I, 24.

        The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club

      London: Chapman and Hall,, 1837. With Forty-Three Illustrations, by R. Seymour and Phiz. Octavo (215 ×130 mm). Contemporary dark red quarter skiver in the French style, maroon cloth sides, titles within floriated panel to spine gilt, dog-tooth roll to boards in blind, comb-marbled endpapers. Engraved frontispiece, vignette title-page and 41 similar plates by Hablot Knight Browne (signed as both "Phiz" and NEMO) and Robert Seymour. Bequest plate of Charles Potter Kling of Augusta, Maine to Bowdoin College Library to the front pastedown, with shelf-mark label; corresponding institutional blindstamp to the printed title-page and due-slip mounted to rear pastedown; laid-in manuscript note providing bibliographical information, dated 1891. Corners and first joint rubbed, mild cockling to endpapers and rear board, contents toned, surface splitting to inner hinge, a few faint spots to the frontispiece and vignette title-page, light browning and spotting to a few plates with occasional faint offsetting as often, plate facing p. 382 crudely shaved along fore edge to no loss of image. A very good copy. First edition in book form, without the two Buss illustrations but otherwise all plates in early states with page numbers as called for but no titles or imprints, and the vignette title-page with the signboard reading "Veller" (corrected to "Weller" in later issues). Pickwick Papers, Charles Dickens's first novel, transformed the obscure journalist into England's most famous writer in a matter of months. The first monthly instalment was issued in an edition of 1,000 copies in April 1836. The book became a publishing sensation after the introduction of Sam Weller in chapter 10, the fourth instalment, issued in July 1836, after which the publishers reprinted the earlier instalments so that readers could catch up. For that reason, even in parts, copies are almost impossible to find in uniform first state. By the time the book was issued in November 1837, many textual corrections had been made. Booksellers often list numerous (and confusing) text points that might conceivably apply to a perfect set of Pickwick Papers as originally issued in parts, but all these points could never be found together in the issues in book form. 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 replaced. The final choice, Hablot Knight Browne (Phiz), was to be Dickens's chosen collaborator for the next two decades. For later issues Phiz illustrated parts IV?-XX, re-engraved the Seymour plates and entirely replaced the Buss plates.

        Important autograph document signed ("H. Berlioz") detailing costs for the first performance of the Requiem, op. 5, ca. 1837

      1 page. Folio. In French (with translation). Berlioz outlines fees for musicians, singers, and tuners and costs for rehearsals, composition, and copying associated with the premiere of the work. Slightly worn; creased at folds; a few very small holes as a result of ink oxidation. . Berlioz's Requiem (the Grande Messe des Morts) was first performed on December 5, 1837 at St. Louis des Invalides on the occasion of the funeral of General Danr?mont. "[Berlioz] admits that when the chance of composing a Requiem came his way he fell on it like a man possessed... The opportunity was a philanthropic commission set up by Gasparin, Minister of the Interior, in order to re-establish the prestige of sacred music, and Berlioz was the first to receive such a commission. It was briskly composed, in a fever of inspiration, in the summer of 1837, but as is the way with bureaucratic patronage, the performance was cancelled for political reasons after Berlioz had gone to the expense of copying the parts and engaging performers. Only after urgent appeals and persistent complaints was an excuse found for staging the performance after all: the death of a French general in the war of conquest in Algeria." "So the Requiem was first heard in the church of the Invalides... in a ceremony of pomp and grandeur which the French do with particular style. It was a stirring public occasion and although it was marred for Berlioz by the conductor Habeneck taking a pinch of snuff at the most dramatic entry of the Tuba mirum (the truth of the anecdote is disputed), it signified for him the blessing of official approval and the wider knowledge in Parisian circles of how powerful and novel his music was. No one was left in any doubt of the force and originality of Berlioz's genius..." Macdonald, pp. 33-4.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Berlin, 12. I. 1837.. 3 SS. 8vo.. Wohl an Friedrich von Raumer (1781-1873): "Entschuldigen Sie, wenn ich so frei bin, dieselben mit einer großen Bitte zu beläßtigen. Ich habe nemlich [!] aus dem Oratorium Susanna von Händel, eine kleine Arie erhalten, die wundervoll ist, welche aber mit englischem Texte ist, da sie so kurz ist, würde ich ergebenst bitten, wenn es Ihre Geschäfte zuließen, die große Güte zu haben, den Text zu übersetzen. Ich bin so frei die Noten beizulegen. Ich habe gehört Sie sind nicht wohl, sonst wäre ich selbst gekommen. Nochmals bitte ich um Entschuldigung [ ]". - Als Zofe einer adeligen Dame nach Wien gekommen, von Emanuel Schikaneder entdeckt und von Antonio Salieri ausgebildet, debütierte die große Sängerin 1803. Napoleon - der sie 1809 erstmals hörte und zutiefst bewunderte - wollte sie nach Paris holen, was aber durch ihre im selben Jahr geschlossene Ehe verhindert wurde. "Ihre größten Triumphe feierte sie zu Berlin, wo sie 1816 als Primadonna engagiert wurde und bis 1829 sang (sie überwarf sich mit Spontini)" (Riemann, Musiklexikon, 11. Aufl., 1929, zit. n. DBA II 898, 210). Ihre Stimme in Verbindung mit einer ungewöhnlich großen mimisch-dramatischen Begabung inspirierte derart, daß u. a. Beethoven den "Fidelio" und Cherubini die "Fanisca" für sie schrieb; Schuberts Oper "Alfonso und Estrella" hingegen lehnte sie ab, "da die Rolle der Estrella ihr als zu lyrisch nicht lag" (MGG IX, 291).

        Important autograph document signed ("H. Berlioz") detailing costs for the first performance of the Requiem, op. 5, ca. 1837

      1 page. Folio. In French (with translation). Berlioz outlines fees for musicians, singers, and tuners and costs for rehearsals, composition, and copying associated with the premiere of the work. Slightly worn; creased at folds; a few very small holes as a result of ink oxidation. . Berlioz's Requiem (the Grande Messe des Morts) was first performed on December 5, 1837 at St. Louis des Invalides on the occasion of the funeral of General Danrémont. "[Berlioz] admits that when the chance of composing a Requiem came his way he fell on it like a man possessed... The opportunity was a philanthropic commission set up by Gasparin, Minister of the Interior, in order to re-establish the prestige of sacred music, and Berlioz was the first to receive such a commission. It was briskly composed, in a fever of inspiration, in the summer of 1837, but as is the way with bureaucratic patronage, the performance was cancelled for political reasons after Berlioz had gone to the expense of copying the parts and engaging performers. Only after urgent appeals and persistent complaints was an excuse found for staging the performance after all: the death of a French general in the war of conquest in Algeria." "So the Requiem was first heard in the church of the Invalides... in a ceremony of pomp and grandeur which the French do with particular style. It was a stirring public occasion and although it was marred for Berlioz by the conductor Habeneck taking a pinch of snuff at the most dramatic entry of the Tuba mirum (the truth of the anecdote is disputed), it signified for him the blessing of official approval and the wider knowledge in Parisian circles of how powerful and novel his music was. No one was left in any doubt of the force and originality of Berlioz's genius..." Macdonald, pp. 33-4.

        Illustrations of The History and Practises of The Thugs. And Notices of some of the proceedings of The Government of India, for the suppression of the crime of Thuggee.

      London. Allen and Co. 1837 - First edition. 8vo. Bound in a functional and rather institutional 20th century pebble grain cloth binding with recent paper label. Brown endpapers, internally clean. Very good indeed, strong, and solid. Binding banalities aside this is a truly fascinating and quite early documentary study of the murderous cult of Thuggee and the early days of its suppression in British India. Eyewitness accounts, transcripts of interviews with captured Thugs and contemporaneous statements give a vivid and compelling view of events, and predates the most famous piece of Thugiana "Confessions of a Thug" by two years. Basically a religiously inspired group of Kali worshipping highway stranglers that are estimated to have held sway over the roads over the Indian interior for 150 years before their eradication and who were eventually estimated to be responsible for upwards of 2 million deaths (although that's a somewhat hysterical figure to be honest) before being destroyed by little more than the British ability to network and communicate whilst riding roughshod over others people's perception of social boundaries. In short they realised it could be happening, pooled their information and smashed all the old rules in favour of new ones. By 1870 the once widespread cult of Thuggee was no more and existed only in rather garish popular novels and in the adoption of the word Thug into the English language. A scarce title. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
