        The Workwoman's Guide, containing Instructions to the Inexperienced in Cutting out and Completing those Articles of Wearing apparel, &c., which are usually made at Home; also Explanation on Upholstery, Straw-platting, Bonnet-making, Knitting, &c. By a Lady.

      London & Birmingham: Simpkin, Marshall, & Co.; Thomas Evans, 1838 - Quarto. Original green leaf-sprigged cloth, black leather label to the spine. A little rubbed, corners through, split to the cloth on the rear joint, spine sunned, neat repairs head and tail of the spine, light browning throughout, some foxing front and back, overall a very good copy. Engraved frontispiece and 24 other similar plates. First edition, uncommon, just 4 copies of the first on Copac, together with 4 of the second edition of 1840; only two copies traced at auction. "The Author of the following pages has been encouraged to hope, that, in placing them, after much deliberation, in the hands of a printer, she is tendering an important and acceptable, however humble, service to her own sex, who, in any condition of life, are engaged, by duty, or inclination, in cutting out wearing apparel in a family, or for their poorer neighbours. She trusts, in particular, that Clergymen's Wives, Young Married Women, School-mistresses, and Ladies' Maids may find, in the "Workwoman's Guide", a fast and serviceable friend" (Preface). Widely considered one of the most important needlework manuals of the nineteenth century; "The value of The Workwoman's Guide is that it provides in its text and illustrations the original nineteenth-century instructions for making and cleaning clothing and accessories. Described are hundreds of objects that were stitched from cloth, knitted from yarn, braided, dyed or otherwise converted into utilitarian and ornamental objects of clothing and household furnishing" (Caroline Sloat, American Antiquarian Society), Seligman notes that it also "includes instructions for drafting". But the present work is also set apart by the remarkable breadth of projects that are laid out in painstaking detail, with chapters on upholstery, household receipts, and straw-work. Intended as a practical guide for its contemporary readers, the book offers valuable insights to modern researchers, the section on upholstery, for example, is cited extensively in Edward P. Cooke's important survey Upholstery in America & Europe from the Seventeenth Century to World War I. An excellent copy of this elusive, and highly desirable, guidebook, offered here in publisher's attractive binding, extremely well-preserved.

"In 1835 Pardoe 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" (ODNB). The Beauties of the Bosphorus was published to capitalise on the great success of the author's City of the Sultan (1837), and to provide a text for Bartlett's engravings, "among the earliest of his Eastern series to appear" (Blackmer). William Bartlett spent most of the 1830s travelling across Europe, the Middle East and North America providing illustrations for travel books, most of which were published by Virtue.

        Lockport Daily Bulletin!

      No Binding. Very Good. Lockport, New York: January 8, 1838- February 3, 1838, issues No. 6 - No. 29, octavo, 23 issues, 27 pages, printed in double columns, issues crudely whip-stitched together, some defects, edges chipped and nicked, else a good run of the daily issues of the first month of this rare Lockport newspaper. The Lockport Daily Bulletin was the community's first daily and was published to keep the town informed about the progress of the Patriot War in Canada. Ink ownership signatures of M. L. Vantin. Lockport located in Niagra County, New York, was close to Canada and this paper contains frontline news, often noted as being "By this Evening's Cars," of the Patriot War which had just begun across the Niagra River in Canada. The contents of the paper exclusively concern breaking news about the war, from Buffalo, Niagra Falls and the Niagra River, Canada and, from further west in Michigan. The "Patriot War" of 1837 and 1838, had repercussions as late as 1841. The Patriot movement inducted between 40,000 and 160,000 men, mostly farmers and unemployed artisans, across the north-eastern states in support of the 1837 Rebellions in Upper and Lower Canada. The organization arose in Vermont among Lower Canadian refugees (the eastern division of Frères chasseurs, or Hunters) and spread westward under the influence of Dr. Charles Duncombe and Donald McLeod, leaders of the short lived Canadian Refugee Relief Association, and Scottish native William Lyon Mackenzie. Without the benefit of united and effective leadership and with inadequate and undisciplined ranks, they made three different extensive plans in 1838 for widespread coordinated attacks along the Canadian border, with a view to eventual joining of forces and establishment of a republic in Canada. With the failure of these plans, the movement came completely under the domination of the "Hunters". International complications were averted as a consequence of the co-operation and vigorous action of the British and American authorities. Congress passed a stronger neutrality act, and Federal troops were sent to the frontier. In the border states the militia was called out, and civil and criminal suits were instituted. On their side, the Canadian and British authorities used military and civil measures to prevent retaliatory attacks. The Lockport Bulletin began publication in January 1838, it was printed at the "Balance Office", the cost of a subscription was 50 cents per month. OCLC 17455242.

        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."

      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.

        Chutes du Niagara. Niagara Falls . Sketched from Nature in March 1837 by A. Blouet. Drawn on stone by C. Remond

      Delpech, Paris 1838 - (22 1/8 x 15 3/8 inches). Title and 4pp. text in French and English. Title with a cartographic vignette. 6 lithographed plates after Blouet, captions in French and English. Contemporary wrappers, lettered on the upper wrapper. Housed in a blue morocco backed box. Very rare plate book of American scenery, depicting Niagara Falls in winter. "These views have been sketched on one of the last days of March 1837 . Great part of the snow which covered the earth, had been melted by the sun and shone for us but few moments . The East wind blew the everlasting cloud, and Canada seemed a new found country, covered with ice trees, most part of which had lost half of their boughs . However, this delightful scene was nearly finished for us, the clouds were heaped up in the sky; at length it began to rain, the mist fell upon us and spread around . The curtain was soon drawn upon so much majesty; we went away, keeping a long memory of this queen of cataracts" (p. 4). The plates comprise: 1) Vue de la Grande Chute du Fer a Cheval prise de l'Ile de la Chevre / View of the Great Horse-Shoe-Fall taken from Goat-Island 2) Vue de la Chute du Centre prise de l'Ile de la Chevre / View of the Central Fall taken from Goat Island 3) Vue de la Chute de Schlosser prise de la Rive de l'Etat de New-York / View of the Schlosser Fall taken from the New-York Shore 4) Vue de la Chite de Schlosser prise de l'Escalier qui conduit au Passage du Fleuve / View of the Schlosser Fall taken from the Stairs of the Ferry 5) Vue du Passage sous la Grande Chute du Fer a Cheval prise du bas de la Rive du Canada / View of the Passage under the Great Horse-Shoe-Fall taken from the Shore on the Canada side 6) Vue Centrale des Chutes prise de la Rive du Canada / General View of the Falls taken from the Canada Shore Blouet (1795-1853), a French architect noted for his work on the Arc de Triomphe, toured the United States in 1836-1837 with Frederic-Auguste Demetz to study American prison architecture and administration for the French Ministry of the Interior.

        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.
