        A COMPLETE COLLECTION OF SØREN KIERKEGAARD'S WORKS - ALL FIRST EDITIONS. A beautiful and highly decorative set almost completely in contemporary and original state - and including a presentation-copy. Without doubt the most magnificent Kierkegaard-set that we have ever collected. Here, we have collected all of his works in first editions - which is not too easy a task (apart from two of the works, which were printed in ab. 250 and 100 copies respectively, the rest were printed in ab. 525 copies each) - and attempted to make the very best set that one could ever hope for. Søren Kierkegaard, the legendary founder of existentialism, who "is now generally considered to be, however eccentric, one of the most important Christian philosophers" (PMM), left nothing to coincidence in any of his writings, and they are all, in their many different ways, important to the understanding of this great thinker.

      København, 1838-59. Among the highlights of this spectacular collection, we can mention briefly: FROM THE PAPERS OF ONE STILL LIVING - his first published work, namely the work in which he sharply criticizes Hans Christian Andersen and ridicules the genre of fairy tales in general - in an unusually large copy, completely uncut, and in a very elegant paper binding in Kierkegaard's own preferred style. (nr. 1)ON THE CONCEPT OF IRONY - his thesis (about Socrates), being his second published work - here with the "Theses", which are often lacking, and which means that it's one of the fewer copies that was intended for colleagues at the university, not regular trade. The first page of the Theses has the day "XXIX" of September written in hand. (nr. 2)EITHER-OR (PMM 315) - his main work, one of the most important works of philosophy of modern times, which seminally influenced later as well as contemporary philosophy - in a stunning copy, one of the loveliest we have ever seen. (nr. 3)THE CONCEPT OF DREAD - which formed the basis for existential psychology, and in which Kierkegaard heavily attacks the philosophy of Hegel - in a beautiful pastiche-binding of the highest quality. The book is said to have appeared in merely 250 copies, which has not actually been verified, but it is a fact that it was issued in a significantly smaller number than the other works, apart from "Sexten opbyggelige Taler", which is the rarest of all of his books. (nr. 7)SEXTEN OPBYGGELIGE TALER - is of the utmost scarcity and is extremely difficult to come by. To our knowledge, it has never before been included in any collection of Kierkegaard works in first editions that has been for sale. The book consists of the popular Two, Three and Four Upbuilding Discourses. The unsold copies of these "Opbyggelige Taler" ("Upbuilding Discourses") were initially collected under the title "Atten opbyggelige Taler" (Eighteen Upbuilding Discourses) and published with a collected title-page; when "To opbyggelige Taler" ("Two Upbuilding Discourses") from 1843 was sold out, the remaining sixteen upbuilding discourses were published with the title-page "Sexten opbyggelige Taler", - hence the number of copies of this rare title is said to be well under 100 ! and is thus by far the rarest of all of Kierkegaard's books. (nr. 11a)CONCLUDING UNSCIENTIFIC POSTSCRIPT TO THE PHILOSOPHICAL FRAGMENTS - which, besides being one of the most philosophically important of Kierkegaard's publications, also reveals one of the most important "secrets" of this philosophical giant: The authorship of not only his main work and the main work of existentialism, "Either-Or", but also of all of his pseudonymous works - in a splendid copy in most excellent condition. (nr. 12)TRAINING IN CHRISTIANITY - which constitutes one of the most Kierkegaardian of all of his works. It is here that he treats his central problematic: How to become a Christian in Christendom. The work also constitutes a fierce attack on the Danish church and was extremely controversial - here in a magnificent presentation-copy, bound in Kierkegaard's signature gift binding, with an original handwritten presentation-inscription on the front free end-paper, reading: "Til/ højærværdige Hr./ Pastor Dr. Rudelbach/ Venskabeligt/fra/ Udgiveren." [For the honourable/Mr. Vicar Doctor Rudelbach/ With friendship/ from/ the publisher (because he mentions himself as the publisher, and not the author on the title-page, he also signs his presentation as the publisher, -the real author according to Kierkegaard is Anti-Climacus)]. (nr. 21)Andreas Gottlob Rudelbach (1792-1862) was a well known Danish theologian and writer. He studied theology, received his master's degree in 1820 and his doctor's degree in 1822 because of his dissertation on Greek and Christian ethics. He was an orthodox Lutheran theologian and thus naturally critisized the prevailing rationalism of the time. For a while, he sympathized with the views of Grundtvig, with whom he issued the "Thoelogical Monthly" (1825-28). Due to his views, he was not given a position at the University of Copenhagen, and in 1829 he was summoned to Sachsen in Germany as the Superintendent there. Here, he continued his attacks on the rationalists and he fought against the union of the Lutherans and the Reformists. In 1845, tired of fighting for his cause and breaking definitively with Grundtvig, he returned to Denmark, where in 1848 he became the parish priest of Slagelse. Rudelbach played a great role in the development of Christianity in Denmark in the Golden Age, and for Kierkegaard he was an important figure personally as well as officially. Rudelbach was a frequent guest in the Kierkegaard home on Nytorv (in the centre of Copenhagen, where Kierkegaard lived for many years) and he frequently discussed with him. He also officially considered and commented on the Christian views and opinions of Rudelbach, and does this especially around the time of his "Training in Christianity". Before 1845 and his relocation to Denmark, Rudelbach had opposed Grundtvig in propounding reformation of the church; Kierkegaard is against this reformation which suggests political means of reformation, and Kierkegaard instead insists that the church needs to be dismantled and be rebuilt anew on spiritual terms. He writes an article about this roughly at the same time that he is working on his "Training in Christianity", and there is no doubt that much of his thought is prompted by Rudelbach. In a famous quotation from his diaries from the same year that "Training in Christianity" appears, Kierkegaard states "Dr. Rudelbach and I. We will never understand each other. Although the two frequently discussed Christianity and Grundtvig's ideas of Christianity, there were many things that they did not agree upon. For instance, around the appearance of "Training in Christianity", Rudelbach openly accuses Kierkegaard for distinguishing between the true church and the Christianity of the State, wherto Kierkegaard openly answered that although he was a "hater of the habitual Christianity", he did not wish for reform on the outside, only on the inside. There are few contemporaries as important for Kierkegaard's ideas on Christianity and more specifically for his important work "Training in Christianity" as Dr. Rudelbach, and the present copy is thus one of the most interesting presentation-copies that one could wish for of the present work. In all, five intact presentation-copies, incuding the present one, are known from Kierkegaard to Rudelbach, and apart from those we know of a few presentation-leaves that are torn out of the works in which they belonged. ... and we could mention many more that have had a profound influence upon the development of philosophy and thought of the 19th and 20th centuries.. 1) Af en endnu Levendes Papirer.

Light occasional brownspotting.Himmelstrup: 292."Søren Aabye Kierkegaard (b. 1813, d. 1855) was a profound and prolific writer in the Danish "golden age" of intellectual and artistic activity. His work crosses the boundaries of philosophy, theology, psychology, literary criticism, devotional literature and fiction. Kierkegaard brought this potent mixture of discourses to bear as social critique and for the purpose of renewing Christian faith within Christendom. At the same time he made many original conceptual contributions to each of the disciplines he employed. He is known as the "father of existentialism", but at least as important are his critiques of Hegel and of the German romantics, his contributions to the development of modernism, his literary experimentation, his vivid re-presentation of biblical figures to bring out their modern relevance, his invention of key concepts which have been explored and redeployed by thinkers ever since, his interventions in contemporary Danish church politics, and his fervent attempts to analyse and revitalise Christian faith."

        OLIVER TWIST;

      1838. or, The Parish Boy's Progress. By "Boz." In Three Volumes. London: Richard Bentley, 1838. 4 pp Vol I undated ads; 2 preliminary pp Vol III undated ads. Original purplish-brown fine-diaper cloth. First Edition, first issue, of this classic novel that has also been a hit as a Broadway musical. This is the "true first edition," not merely the "first edition in book form" -- as, unlike most of Dickens's novels, OLIVER TWIST was not first issued in monthly serial parts. It did appear in "Bentley's Miscellany" magazine from February 1837 through April 1839, but this three-volume edition was published in November 1838. (OLIVER TWIST was finally issued in ten serial parts in 1846 -- one of the scarcest "Dickens in parts.")~This copy is of the first issue -- with "Boz" on the title pages and with the "fireside" plate at the end of Vol III. Within a week after the first copies were issued, Dickens insisted that his name (rather than "Boz") appear on the title pages; he also insisted that the "church" plate replace the "fireside" plate at the end of the third volume.~This set is in the primary fine-diaper cloth (some copies are in horizontally-ribbed cloth of the same color, but with a different arabesque design -- precedence unknown). This copy does have the "London/Bentley" imprint at the foot of the spines, where some copies are blank; it has been surmised that the blank binding is earlier, if only because Bentley would have been more likely to add than to remove his name from the volumes -- though precedence is far from certain. Lastly, the list of illustrations in Vol I is present in this copy: again it is uncertain whether its absence or its presence was the earlier state, though it is possible that Bentley may have begun inserting it when he realized that George Cruikshank's name had otherwise been omitted from the publication. (Bear in mind that the second issue, with Dickens's name on the title pages, was out within a week of the first; therefore, all of these questions of precedence among issue points involve only a few days.)~Condition is very good, with minor edge-wear: the volumes appear to have been re-cased, and the (original yellow) endpapers are cracked despite the presence of early matching strips of paper in the gutters. Smith I pp 28-37; Gimbel A27; Eckel pp 59-61; Carter BV p. 107 and MBV p. 7. Housed in an open-back cloth case.

        OLD AMERICAN COINS. In Collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society. Third Series, Vol. VII

      Boston: Charles C. Little and James Brown; printed by Freeman and Bolles, 1838. 8vo, late 19th-century blue cloth; red morocco spine label, gilt. 304, (2) pages [Mease's article comprises pages 282 to 283]. 1898-dated purchase inscription on front pastedown. Moderate foxing. Very good or better. A decent copy of this foundational work. Mease's 1838 article is "the first numismatic article on American coins published in America," according to Eric Newman (The Asylum, Summer 1992). Of the highest importance and considerable rarity. Brief as it may be, this work is one of the foundations upon which U.S. numismatic scholarship has been constructed. Indeed, it is of greater value than merely as a curiosity or historical artifact: Newman's aforementioned article discusses how Mease's comments on the Bar Cent and the circulating value of Connecticut coppers have important implications for current scholarship on these pieces. James Mease, M.D. (1771-1846) was a polymath who published on an number of different subjects, including medicine, geology and history. His Picture of Philadelphia (1811) is a foundational work of local history and contains the first useful description of U.S. Mint operations. In addition, he is considered to be the first writer to publish on the subject of U.S. numismatics. In a groundbreaking series of three articles (of which this is the last), Mease examined U.S. medals and coins from the perspective of the numismatist. In his groundbreaking lecture on the topic of U.S. numismatic literature, William S.F. Mayers noted that "the first actual attempts at systematic classification and record of the coins struck in or for the American colonies and United States, appear in the shape of papers to be found in the collections of State Historical Societies" ("The Literature of American Numismatics," Norton's Literary Letter, No. 3, 1859, p. 6). Mease's articles are specifically mentioned by Mayers in his article, showing that these works, long forgotten until recent years, were still in the memory of some in the late 1850s. Unlisted in Attinelli.

        Die Infusionsthierchen als vollkommene Organismen.

      Ein Blick in das tiefere organische Leben der Natur. Leipzig, L. Voss, 1838. 2 volumes (text & atlas). Folio (457 x 335mm). pp. xviii, (4), 547, (1), with 1 engraved separate atlas-title and 64 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary green half calf, gilt ornamented spines with gilt lettering. First and only edition of this splendidly produced work on Infusiora."Ehrenberg's great contribution to biology was his work on the infusiora, the results of which were published originally in a number of brief essays and afterwards in the important and splendid work entitled 'Die Infusionsthierchen' printed in 1838. The result of this and other works of his was that the number of known Infusiora was considerably increased, and their classification essentially advanced" (Nordenskiöld p. 427). The excellent plates are all after Ehrenberg's own drawings. Ehrenberg studied at the University of Berlin (M.D., 1818) and was associated with the university throughout his career. He took part in a scientific expedition (1820?25) to Egypt, Libya, the Sudan, and the Red Sea under the auspices of the university and the Prussian Academy of Sciences. The expedition?s only survivor, he collected about 34,000 animal- and 46,000 plant specimens. With Alexander von Humboldt, he participated in 1829 in an expedition, sponsored by Tsar Nicholas I of Russia, to Central Asia and Siberia. For nearly 30 years Ehrenberg examined samples of water, soil, sediment, blowing dust and rock and described thousands of new species, among them well-known flagellates such as Euglena, ciliates such as Paramecium aurelia and Paramecium caudatum, and many fossils, in nearly 400 scientific publications. He was particularly interested in a unicellular group of protists called diatoms, but he also studied, and named, many species of radiolaria and foraminifera. /After his death in 1876, his collections of microscopic organisms were deposited in the Museum für Naturkunde at the University of Berlin. The "Ehrenberg Collection" includes 40,000 microscope preparations, 5,000 raw samples, 3,000 pencil and ink drawings, and nearly 1,000 letters of correspondence. /Some occasional foxing in the text volume, not in the atlas volume. Stamps on title-pages.//Provance: Name of Eschricht 1849, probably Daniel Frederik Eschricht, Danish zoologist on free endpaper and an old stamp of H. Adolph Meyer on title.//Garrison & Morton 111; Nissen ZBI, 1244.

        A Synopsis of the Birds of Australia and the Adjacent Islands

      published by the Author, London 1838 - (10 1/2 x 7 3/8 inches). 73 hand-coloured lithographic plates by and after Elizabeth Gould. 1p. contents list, 8pp. appendix "Description of New Species of Australian Birds" Expertly bound to style in half green morocco and period green pebbled cloth boards, spine gilt, yellow endpapers, gilt edges Rare coloured issue of Gould's first attempt to describe the birds of Australia. This work is Gould's first work in connection with Australian birds. The excellent plates, the work of Elizabeth Gould, show that she not only possessed great natural talent, but that also developed much from her professional association with Edward Lear: the portrait of the sulphur-crested Cockatoo in part IV is a prime example. Gould published this work, as he states in the prospectus, because he noticed that Australia had not been as well served by ornithological monographs as many other parts of the world. He therefore "conceives that a work on the Birds of [Australia and the adjacent islands] cannot fail to be of the greatest interest . [and that] . at this moment [he has ] . in his possession an exceedingly rich collection . among which are a large number of undescribed species; and having also relatives resident [in Australia] . devoted to this branch of science." Gould goes on to lay out his specific plan for the publication. "The Work will be published in Parts, each of which will contain 18 Plates, with letter-press descriptions . the price of each Part, 1l. 5s. coloured, 15s. uncoloured . It is impossible to state the number of parts to which the work may extend; the species now known to the author . may be comprised to form 6 to 8 parts". Gould finishes by noting that if the present work shows that there is sufficient interest, he may undertake a work on the same scale as his Birds of Europe , "in which case he contemplates visiting Australia, New Zealand, &c., for the space of two years, in order to investigate and study the natural history of those countries". History shows that the present work ran to only four parts, but that Gould was induced to visit Australia, and he returned and published his two large format works on the birds and animals of Australia ( The Birds of Australia [London: [1840]-48, 1851-1869, 8 volumes; and The Mammals of Australia [London: [1845]-63, 3 volumes).

        A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD; INCLUDING AN EMBASSY TO MUSCAT AND SIAM IN 1835, 1836 AND 1837

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Blanchard, 1838. First edition. 8vo, later [c. 1900] blue cloth, gilt. 559, (1) pages. Some signatures foxed; generally near fine. Quoted extensively in Q. David Bowers's The Rare Silver Dollars Dated 1804 and the Exciting Adventures of Edmund Roberts. Ruschenberger was a U.S. Navy surgeon who accompanied the USS Peacock, under the command of C.K. Stribling, on "an Embassy from the Government of the United States to the courts of Muscat, Siam, and Cochin-China, in the years 1835, 1836, and 1837 [embracing] Zanzibar, Arabia, Hindoostan, Ceylon, Java, Siam, Cochin-China, China, the Bonin Islands, the Sandwich Islands, the Californias, Mexico, &c." Of numismatic importance due to the presentation of sets of United States coins by diplomat Edmund Roberts to Said bin Sultan al-Said, Sultan of Muscat and Oman, and King Rama III of Siam. The facts behind these presentations were largely forgotten until the Siam set surfaced in 1962 at the ANA Convention. The distribution of these sets are mentioned in Ruschenberger's book, though he does not mention the odd presence of 1804-dated coins among the 1834-dated pieces constituting most of the set. On page 91, he writes, "It is a universal custom, amongst the nations of Asia, to make gifts to each other on all occasions of friendly intercourse; and, in negotiating treaties, the nature and value of the presents is always a point of grave consideration between the contracting agents. In conformity with this usage, a variety of articles was presented to the Sultan by the United States, amongst which were a sword and altagan, with gold scabbards, and mountings, Tanner's map of the United States, an American flag, a set of American coins, several rifles, a number of cut glass lamps, a quantity of American nankin, known as Forsyth's nankin. &c. &c." The 1804 dollar in this set was offered as part of the Pogue collection just recently. On pages 343-344, he discussed the Siam gift in similar terms. Besides the two diplomatic gift sets, Ruschenberger appears to have had an above-average interest in coins, regularly discussing the coinage of the various places he visits and discussing older coins on occasion. Very interesting, and very scarce. Howes 514a.
