        Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club

      London Chapman & Hall 1837 - With Forty-Three Engraved Plates in a Contemporary Binding DICKENS, Charles. The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club. London: Chapman & Hall, 1837. First edition in book form of one of Dickens’ greatest works, mixed issue. Thick octavo (8 1/8 x 5 1/16 inches). xiv, [1, directions], [1, errata], 609, [1, blank] pp. With forty-three illustrations including frontispiece and vignette title-page. With the seven plates by Seymour and the remaining ones by Phiz. Originally issued in 20 parts from April 1836 to November 1837. With half-title, "Directions to Binder" and errata leaf.

Spine stamped in gilt with five raised bands. All edges gilt, gilt-turn-ins. Housed in a brown cloth open end slipcase. A fine copy with clean plates. "From a literary standpoint the supremacy of this book has been. firmly established. It was written by Dickens when he was twenty-four and its publication placed the author on a solid foundation from which he never was removed. It is quite probable that only Shakespeare’s Works, the Bible and perhaps the English Prayer Book, exceed "Pickwick Papers" in circulation" (Eckel, 17). "Never was a book received with more rapturous enthusiasm than that which greeted the Pickwick Papers!" (Allibone I:500). Pickwick would be the first volume in which Dickens was acknowledged as the author, rather than using his pen name, "Boz." Gimbel A15. Hatton and Cleaver.

"Pickwick was the greatest publishing sensation since Byron had woken to find himself famous, as a result of the publication of the first two cantos of Childe Harold, in 1812... [and enjoyed] a phenomenal popularity that transcended barriers of class, age, and education. Mary Russell Mitford wrote to an Irish friend, 'All the boys and girls talk [Dickens's] fun - the boys in the street; and yet those who are of the higher taste like it the most... Lord Denman studies Pickwick on the bench while the jury are deliberating'" (ODNB).

        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.

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)

Veller";p.375, “Pickwick” misspelled as “Picwkick” in headline.p. 400, has correct reading 'his friends'; p. 432, the 'F' in headline is imperfect.The Pickwick Papers had originally been conceived as a showcase for the illustrations of Robert Seymour, with Dickens, then a young and relatively unknown journalist writing under the name of "Boz," engaged by the publishers more or less as an accompanist. Of the modest one thousand copies printed of part 1, only 400 made it into circulation on the day of publication. Sales of the inaugural issue being slow, a mere five hundred copies were printed of the second part. However, when part 2 unexpectedly sold out, as well as the remaining copies of part 1, both were reprinted before the publication of part 3. With the introduction of Sam Weller in part 4, The Pickwick Papers caught fireâ€?"sales skyrocketed, and a literary star was born. Seymour, however, was not to share in its success; shortly after etching the final plate for the second part, he took his own life. Robert William Buss was engaged to illustrate the third part, but a dissatisfied Dickens insisted on a replacement for the following part. Hablot K. Browne was contracted, and thus began one of the most fruitful collaborations in the annals of Victorian literature. "Phiz" ultimately etched new plates to replace those done by Buss, and, in order to meet the high demand, etched duplicate plates for parts 10-19/20.
