        Sketches by Boz (in 20 monthly parts)

      Chapman and Hall, London 1837 - First Editions, First Printings in the ORIGINAL 20 monthly parts. A wonderful set. These monthly parts are bound in the ORIGINAL pink wrappers published from November 1837 through June 1839. Theses "Sketches" had appeared in various journals and magazines as early as 1832 under the pen-name "Boz" a Dickens family nickname. The first book form as a "First Series" in two volumes was published in February 1836 with a "Second Series" in Decemeber 1836. Therefore, the issue of monthly numbers post-dated the book form unlike the publishing history of other Dickens' novels. The first monthly issue coincided with the final installment of "Pickwick Papers". The pink wrappers all contain the front cover design by George Cruikshank. There are a total of 40 full-page plates drawn and etched by Cruikshank, two in each number. No imprint appears on the plates until the sixth number. This set is consistent and correct. All plates are toned around edges, occasional spotting within images. Numbers are discussed in following notes: Number 1 has a tipped-in catalogue listing for this copy. The issue is complete; Number 2 is complete with the very scarce "Address" dated November 30, 1837; Number 3 is complete with the very scarce MECHI'S CATALOGUE. The first page of the catalogue is torn at fore-edge with 3/4" piece missing. All Virtue ads are present but folded differently than the order in Hatton; Number 4 has ink name at top of front cover, several brown spots on rear cover; Number 5 is complete with the four-page "Proclamation" which is frequently missing; Number 6 has ink name at top of front cover, Chapman and Hall imprint begins to be included at bottom of plates; Number 7-12 complete without flaws; Number 13 has a small brown spot on the "Boarding House" plate; Number 14-17 complete with ink name on front cover of #15-16; Number 18 has a small bookseller's stamp on front cover; Number 19 has a small tear to spine, Number 20 has a Ink name rear cover.First issue point on last page of Number 20 with "reeledbefore" run together on last page, 6 lines up. In summary, 18 of the 20 issues are complete and correct, containing all adverts, the announcement, and the proclamation, and the elusive Mechi's catalogue. A few spines have had archival-quality repairs. Housed in a full green morocco custom slipcase made by SANGORSKI AND SUTCLIFFE, spine panels, gilt lettering, spine gently mellowed to dark brown. This piece of Dickensiana rarely comes to auction, five times in 25 years It has appeared in only two dealer's catalogues in the past 13 years. . We note 11 libraries world-wide listing it among their holdings. See Hatton and Cleaver pp. 91-128 and Eckels pp. 15-22. A wonderful set in collector's condition. We buy Dickens in parts.

        [SIX PEN-AND-INK FIGURE STUDIES BY AUGUSTUS KOLLNER]

      [Philadelphia. 1837, 1861-1867].. [Philadelphia. 1837, 1861-1867].. Six large sheets, ranging in size from 19 1/2 x 14 to 23 x 16 inches. Some light wear at edges. One drawing with some light foxing; relatively minor soiling otherwise. Very good. Six large figure drawings by German-American artist Augustus Kollner, depicting male nudes in various poses: standing, lying, and sitting. Though Kollner is best known for his lithographs and watercolors, he also produced etchings, woodcuts, and drawings, preferring pen and ink as his medium for these. Aside from the earliest of these studies, dated March 1837, the drawings were executed in Philadelphia during the 1860s, after Kollner's commercial ventures had mostly subsided. "German-born Augustus Theodore Frederick Kollner arrived in America in 1839 and enjoyed an artistically fruitful career in this country until his death in 1906...Associated at one time or another with each of the major lithographic firms in Philadelphia, he worked his way from journeyman to artist, to chief artist, to partner. Ultimately, he owned his own establishment" - Wainwright. After the Civil War his career flagged, but because of his wife's inheritance he was able to pick and choose what projects he accepted. This financial freedom also allowed him the luxury to paint at leisure, and in his later years he generated a tremendous amount of work, which he often kept bound up in albums. An attractive and unusual example of Kollner's artistic abilities. Wainwright, "Augustus Kollner, Artist" in PMHB, Vol. 84, no. 3 (ref).

Housed in a later green cloth clamshell case.Charles James Apperley (1777-1843), English sportsman and sporting writer, better known as Nimrod, the pseudonym under which he published his works on the chase and on the turf. A devoted fox-hunter, around 1821 Apperley began to contribute a series of articles to The Sporting Magazine, under the pseudonym of "Nimrod," that covered horse races, hunt meets and other sporting events. His references to the personalities of the people he knew or met at such events helped to double the circulation of the magazine within a few years. Mr. Pittman, the proprietor of The Sporting Magazine, gave Nimrod a handsome salary and defrayed all the expenses of his tours. He also gave Nimrod a stud of hunters. After Pittman's death, the proprietors of the magazine sued Apperley for the money that had been advanced. To avoid imprisonment, Apperley moved to Calais in 1830, where he supported himself by writing. Apperley is best known for his two books, The Life of a Sportsman, and Memoirs of the Life of John Mytton, both of which were illustrated with colored engravings by Henry Thomas Alken. Apperley eventually returned to England and died in Upper Belgrave Place, London, on 19 May 1843.The Plates:1. Preparing to Start.2. Getting Well Off.3. The Race - Epsom.4. The Melton Hunt.5.

        The Naval History of Great Britain, From the Declaration of War by France in 1793, to the Accession of George IV. A New Edition, with Considerable Additions and Notes, and an Account of the Burmese War and the Battle of Navarino.

      London, Richard Bentley, 1837 - 6 volumes, octavo (213 × 133 mm). Contemporary dark purple grained calf by Cross of Greenwich - tickets to pastedowns - double red morocco labels, raised bands with gilt rules, compartments filled with rope-twist blind tooling, single broad gilt fillet panel to the boards, enclosing a dentelle panel in blind, marbled edges, dun endpapers. A little rubbed at the extremities, light toning, a very good set. 24 portraits, 38 battle-plans in the text, 28 folding tables. A "monument of accuracy - it has stood the test of time and remains the best account of the naval side of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars" (Kemp, The Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea, p. 425). First conceived of when he was held prisoner in America during the War of 1812 the Naval History is a remarkable work. Working under the motto "Verité sans Peur", James set himself standards of inclusiveness and accuracy extraordinary for the 19th century. His aim was to compile ". an exact account of every operation of naval war during the period named. He consulted not only published works, especially the official narratives, both British and French, but also the logs of the ships, and, whenever possible, the participants themselves" (ODNB). Successively mined by Forester and O'Brian for incident and colour, this well-written history is not only essential reference for the period, but makes excellent reading. NMM, V, 2158.

        Fieldfare, Turdus Pilaris; (Linn)

      London 1837 - This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, Fieldfare, Turdus Pilaris; (Linn), from John Gould’s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds Europe" (1832-1837) is in excellent condition. Measuring 21.5" x 14.5", this lithograph magnificently displays the author’s scientific skill and attention to detail. Fieldfares are member of the Thrush family and this songbird is finely illustrated with precise lines defining and detailing each feather. This fine birds has multiple colors and intricate patterns on its neck and underside. John Gould was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of the most accomplished and engaging natural history works of the 19th century, “The Birds of Europe” was also the first of Gould's works to feature plates by Edward Lear. A total of sixty-eight images bear Lear's name, and they are among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made. Lear endowed his illustrations with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, and his style is at once fluidly spontaneous and realistically precise. In this way, the images of “The Birds of Europe” are amazingly distinctive, while also highly realistic. Gould undertook this work partly in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species.

Dort lernte er Klemens Maria Hofbauer kennen und begann 1820 das Theologiestudium. Er wurde am 21. August 1823 zum Priester geweiht. Ab 1825 war er Professor für Kirchengeschichte und Kirchenrecht im Lyzeum in Salzburg. Seit 1832 war er Direktor der orientalischen Akademie in Wien. Er wurde 1849 zum Fürstbischof von Seckau ernannt [...]. 1853 erfolgte die Ernennung zum Erzbischof der Erzdiözese Wien und am 17. Dezember 1855 die Erhebung zum Kardinal [...].

Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u.

Many of his feats are recorded and graphically delineated, including the climax of his folly in setting his nightshirt on fire to cure a hiccough (Martin Hardie).The Plates:1.

Erste Ausgabe.. Im Vorwort beschreibt der in preußischen Diensten stehende Major Eickstedt, dass "ein glücklicher Zufall" ihn ein Manuskript finden ließ, das er nun der Öffentlichkeit nicht vorenthalten wolle. Jähns schätzt angesichts der Bedeutung, die in dem Reglement den Piken beigemessen wird, dass die Abfassung desselben in die achtziger oder neunziger Jahre des 17. Jahrhundert fällt. Die Besonderheit der vielen schematischen Darstellungen weist als Verfasser "auf einen mathematischen Kopf hin, der mit rechnerischer Freude und offenbarer Spitzfindigkeit die geometrisch-arithmetischen Kombinationen bis an die Grenzen der Möglichkeit verfolgte und so zuweilen zu kaleidoskopischen Figuren kam, welche mit der Praxis des militärischen Lebens nichts mehr zu tun haben. Daher glaube ich auch nicht, daß dies 'Reglement' eine amtliche Exerziervorschrift ist, halte es vielmehr für die wissenschaftliche Vorarbeit zu einer solchen ... Immerhin bleibt die Arbeit überaus interessant, weil sie ein methodisch geordnetes Bild der zu ihrer äußersten Höhe entwickelten Exerzierkunst des 17. Jahrhunderts entrollt." (Jähns, Geschichte der Kriegswissenschaften, 1890, S. 1301). Die Tafeln zeigen die Bewegungsabläufe beim Laden. Provenienz: Aus der militärhistorischen Bibliothek des Königs Ernst August von Hannover, mit dessen ex libris-Stempel auf dem Titelblatt verso.

        Attorneys Abraham Lincoln and John Todd Stuart Announce a New Partnership in Their Hometown Newspaper, the Sangamo Journal

      Springfield, IL 1837 - Newspaper. Sangamo Journal, Springfield, Ill., December 23, 1837. 4 pp., 18 x 24 3/4 in. Double matted and framed with glass on both sides to display pages one and four. Slightly chipped 26 x 33 in. frame. Lincoln and John Todd Stuart, cousin of Lincoln's future wife Mary Todd, had served together in the Illinois House of Representatives from 1834-1836. They formed Stuart & Lincoln on April 12, 1837. In the upper portion of the first column of the first page appears this five line advertisement: "STUART & LINCOLN, / ATTORNEYS and Counsellors at Law, will practice, / conjointly, in the Courts of this Judicial Circuit. - / Office No. 4 Hoffman's Row, up stairs. / Springfield, april 12, 1837." Two ads directly above: "NINIAN W. EDWARDS, / ATTORNEY & COUNSELLOR AT LAW, / Springfield - Illinois."Lincoln had moved from New Salem, Illinois, to Springfield in 1836. He had first met fellow attorney Ninian W. Edwards when both were members of the Illinois State House of Representatives. Edwards married Elizabeth Todd in 1832, and Lincoln met Elizabeth's sister, Mary Todd, at the Edwards home, where Mary had moved in 1839. On November 4, 1842, Lincoln and Mary Todd were married in the Edwards mansion.The Sangamo Journal started publishing in 1831, shortly after a young Lincoln settled in New Salem. The newspaper faithfully supported Abraham Lincoln and the Whig Party throughout many name changes: the Illinois Journal (1847), shortly after Lincoln left for Congress, then the Illinois State Journal (1855). As the Whig party broke up, the newspaper supported the newly-formed Republican Party and Abraham Lincoln's rising political star. ConditionVery fine with no visible tears.

        Manuel consolateur des cocus. Code pacifique des ménages, ouvrage éminemment utile ... traduit fidèlement de l?anglais par le Baron Commode

      ?Cornopolis:: chez tous les Marchands de Nouveautés. Imprimerie de l?Encorné? [colophon:] Printed for the author, Lill. "Cornopolis:: chez tous les Marchands de Nouveautés. Imprimerie de l?Encorné" [colophon:] Printed for the author, Lille: chez Blocquel,, [ca. 1837]. 12mo. Bound with three pamphlet sermons (see below). 12mo (132 x 84 cm). 3-107, [1] pp. Printed on yellow wove paper. Fold-out hand-colored woodcut frontispiece (pp. [1-2]) showing three famous cuckolds, three woodcut vignettes in text. Fine. Bound with three pamphlets in 19th-century quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt lettered (very slight wear to extremities). Lithographed bookplate of E. Alexander. ***First edition of an illustrated spoof, printed on yellow paper. Writing under one of his numerous pseudonyms, in a supposed translation from the English, Blocquel solemnly promises consolation to les cocus (cuckolds). He asserts that le cocuage brings two important benefits: increased tenderness from the guilty wives, and supplemental income providing an enhanced quality of life, thanks to the stipends of lovers anxious to avoid scandal or disruption of their pleasures. Should the reader fail to find comfort in these compensations, the author reminds him that he is not alone, for les cocus number in the millions, scattered across the globe. To buttress the latter argument he provides plentiful anecdotes of adultery, some funnier than others featuring cuckolds from every walk of life, from kings to shopkeepers.The hand-colored frontispiece portrays three prominent historical or mythological cocus, whose woes are detailed in the text: Chilpéric, Frankish King of Burgundy, the god Vulcan, and a certain Monsieur S., a magistrate, no doubt a contemporary object of gossip; each with his own attire and attributes and his own style of horns. A series of unverifiable "anthropological" accounts of marital practices throughout the world follows, covering polygamy, polyandry, attitudes toward virginity, and divorce. The last section makes for grim reading, as it contains tales of sexual slavery: the selling, renting, or lending out of women by their male relatives, be they fathers, brothers, or husbands.The Lille publisher and writer Simon-François Blocquel (1760-1863) was a prolific "polygraph printer, writer, publisher, editor and above all astute businessman ... who was able to exploit all fashions if not to inspire them outright" (Revue de la Bibliothèque nationale de France, no. 18, "Jeux de mots en images"). "Graphomane impenitent" [an impenitent scribbler] (Dictionnaire de biographie française), Blocquel was apprenticed to a printer at age nine and went on to found his own printing house, licensed in 1811, from which he issued under various pseudonyms dozens of his own works on magic, prestidigitation, and prophecy, as well as cookbooks, children's books, almanacs, song-books and other popular texts. His business network extended throughout France and the northern border countries, as shown by the final page of this edition, listing the booksellers carrying the book: in Antwerp at Tessaro?s, printseller; in Brussels at Bonardi?s; in Paris at Delarue?s (a frequent partner), and with all sellers of novelties in the book trade (chez tous les Marchands de nouveautés en Librairie) in France and Belgium. There appear to be no copies in American libraries. OCLC and the Catalogue collectif de France locate copies of this edition at the BnF (2), Montpellier, and Chalon-sur-Saône.Gay-Lemonnyer III:25; La bibliographie jaune, p. 69; B. Musa, Histoire d'un imprimeur lillois, Simon-François Blocquel (Lille, 2006) 1478 (no copy seen, cited from an 1837 publisher?s catalogue).Bound at the end are three "sermons" de colportage (chapbooks) the first and last facetious:- Sermon du Révérend Père Esprit de Tinchebray, fameux prédicateur. Haute-Bruyère, [space left blank for date, not supplied]. (colophon:) Lille: imprimerie de Blocquel), n.d. 16 pp., title woodcut of a priest preaching to a crowd, woodcut bust of a saint within full-page ornamental border. The earliest editions date to the late 17th century. Musa 415, citing the title?s appearance in Blocquel catalogues from 1837, 1847, 1851 and 1853. The title cut was used to illustrate other chapbook Sermons printed and/or published by Blocquel: cf. Musa 1483.- Sermon en Proverbes. Epinal: chez Pellegrin, n.d. 12 pp. - Sermon naïf, Fait par un bon vieux Curé de Village... sur la conduite des garçons et des filles... Penultième édition... [drop-title]. (colophon:) Lille: chez Castiaux; imprimerie de Blocquel), n.d. 12 pp. Castiaux, who often worked with Blocquel, was the most prominent publisher-bookseller in Lille during the first half of the nineteenth century. The Newberry holds another copy of this pamphlet, which is written largely in dialect, or patois. Musa 1441.

Benigno Juan Isidro Risueño d'Amador (1802-1849) était un médecin espagnol, né à Cartagena (Murcia) et professeur à la faculté de médecine de Montpellier; il fut l'un des premiers défenseurs de l'homéopathie en France, et c'est lui qui prit la tête du mouvement contre l'emploi des probabilités en médecine, dont cet ouvrage recueille les arguments en faveur de "la méthode inductive". "La théorie dite des probabilités semble renfermer des difficultés et des contradictions logiques peut-être insolubles, même dans la spéculation mathématique pure". Références à Pascal, Bernouilli, Leibnitz, Euler, Condorcet, Laplace, etc. Bon exemplaire. Voir Rosser Matthews, La introducción de los métodos estadísticos en la medicina de los siglos XIX y XX (2005). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
