        Horae Paulinae; Or, The Truth of the Scripture History of Saint Paul Evinced

      London - Longman and Co.; T. Cadell; J. Richardson, et al, 1838. London - Longman and Co.; T. Cadell; J. Richardson, et al, 1838 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An early nineteenth century edition of this Christian work concerning the scriptures and St Paul by theologian William Paley. From the Widdrington library, Newton Hall, with a pencil shelfmark to the front free-endpaper, and the ink signature of S. F. Jacson to the front pastedown. In Horae Paulinae Paley showed he was thoroughly versed in St Paul's teachings, to which he applied a good deal of original criticism. He mounted a detailed comparison between Paul's epistles and the Acts of the Apostles, concluding that the similarities between the two reinforced the authenticity of the testimony they contained. In so doing he demonstrated that Paul's letters were not the contrived product of a personal or political agenda but rather were an authentic source of early Christian history -DNB. Condition: In the original publisher's binding. Externally, some bumping, with slight loss to the spine label. The joints are just starting. Internally, firmly bound, with light intermittent spots, and slight browning to the top margin. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Oliver Twist; or, the Parish Boy's Progress. By "Boz

      London: Richard Bentley, 1838. London: Richard Bentley,, 1838. 3 volumes, octavo. Original reddish brown fine-diaper cloth, spine in compartments with gilt titles, sides each stamped in blind with an arabesque cartouche, yellow coated endpapers. 24 etched plates by George Cruikshank including the "Fireside" plate (facing p. 313 in vol. III). Slightest touch of fading to spines, sprinkle of spotting to top edge not extending into the text, a very few instances of the beginnings of separation between one or two gatherings, but an exceptional copy in bright cloth, hinges entirely uncracked, text and plates clean and fresh: a fine copy. First edition in cloth; first issue with the Fireside plate. Walter E. Smith explains the bibliographical details in Charles Dickens in the Original Cloth: "when Bentley decided to publish Oliver in book form before its completion in his periodical, Cruikshank had to complete the last few plates in haste. Dickens did not review them until the eve of publication and objected to the Fireside plate ("Rose Maylie and Oliver" [the final plate in vol. III])... Dickens had Cruikshank design a new plate [the Church plate] which retained the same title ... This Church plate was not completed in time for incorporation into the early copies of the book, but it replaced the Fireside plate in later copies... Dickens not only objected to the Fireside plate, but also disliked having "Boz" on the title page. He voiced these objections prior to publication and the plate and title page were changed between November 9 [publication date] and 16.

        The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby

      London: Chapman and Hall. London: Chapman and Hall. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST BOOK EDITION IN SCARCE PUBLISHER'S DELUXE MOROCCO BINDING, of Dickens's third published novel; one of his most successful works, establishing his lasting reputation. "The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby had begun its monthly part-issue in March 1838 and was completed in twenty numbers in October 1839. This story, which for thirteen months Dickens wrote alongside Oliver Twist, originated in his determination to expose the scandal of unwanted children consigned to remote and brutal Yorkshire schools; accompanied by Browne, he conducted an on-the-spot midwinter investigation just before beginning to write Nickleby. In this rambling, episodic, often wildly funny book, written very much in the mode of the Smollett novels Dickens had devoured as a child, the Yorkshire school setting is soon left behind, and the gallant young hero and his pathetic protégé, Smike, wander forth to undergo various adventures, both farcical and melodramatic; they are persecuted by Nicholas's wicked uncle and other villains, who also threaten the virtue of Nicholas's pure young sister Kate, but all is eventually set right by the benevolent Cheeryble brothers, though they cannot save Smike. The story is rich in unforgettable comic characters like the endlessly garrulous Mrs Nickleby and the strolling player Vincent Crummles and his troupe, and in places it resembles Sketches by Boz in its vivid evocation of particular London neighbourhoods" (Dictionary of National Biography). 
 Complete with 40 plates (including frontispiece) by Phiz. Issue points: Nickleby is a notoriously complex book bibliographically. This copy with 36 of 41 first issue points as noted in Smith; including "latter" for "letter" (p. 160) but with "sister" for "visiter" (p.123). Frontispiece and first two plates with Chapman and Hall imprint (first state); third and fourth without imprint. London: Chapman and Hall, 1839. Octavo, original publisher's green morocco rebacked with original spine laid down. Some rubbing to upper joint of binding; browning to margins of plates (as usual). A very good copy in the very rare publisher's presentation morocco.

Innehåller dikter och kortare prosastycken. Gunnar Brusewitz har ägnat Otto Sebastian von Unge (1797-1849) ett kapitel i "Den nöjsamma nyttigheten" där han anför honom som ett exempel på de författare "som av mer eller mindre svårbegriplig anledning blivit våra ständiga följeslagare genom livet" och tillägger: "Som skald - han gav ut två smärre diktsamlingar - vårdslösade han versformen så till den grad att hans poesi fick ett drag av dilettantism. Han struntade i elegansen, budskapet var det väsentligaste."

      , 1838. 1838. [our finest copy evah] 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." 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.")~Within a week after initial publication, copies began to be issued (at Dickens's insistence) with his name on the title pages (rather than "Boz"), and with the "church" plate replacing the "fireside" plate. This copy is of the first issue -- with "Boz" on the title pages and with the "fireside" plate at the end of Vol III. 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.)~This set is in FINE condition: there is essentially no external wear to the cloth, the spine gilt remains bright, the original yellow endpapers exhibit only the merest hint of cracking, there is scarcely any foxing at all on the textual leaves or plates... in fact, the ONLY notable flaw is that on two covers there is a faint partial glass-ring. Period. This is the best copy we have offered in our almost-35-years in business. Smith I pp 28-37; Gimbel A27; Eckel pp 59-61; Carter BV p. 107 and MBV p. 7. Housed in a morocco-backed clamshell case.

        The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

      London: John Murray, 1838-39.. London: John Murray, 1838-39. Octavo, 12 volumes. Three quarters green morocco with raised bands to the spine, gilt stamping to the spine and gilt ruling to the front and rear panels. Top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. With folding maps to each volume. In near fine condition. A very attractive early set. This masterpiece of historical penetration and literary style has remained one of the ageless historical works… Gibbon brought a width of vision and a critical mastery of the available sources which have not been equalled to this day; and the result was clothed in inimitable prose" (PMM 222). "For 22 years Gibbon was a prodigy of steady and arduous application. His investigations extended over almost the whole range of intellectual activity for nearly 1500 years. And so thorough were his methods that the laborious investigations of German scholarship, the keen criticisms of theological zeal, and the steady researches of (two) centuries have brought to light very few important errors in the results of his labors. But it is not merely the learning of his work, learned as it is, that gives it character as a history. It is also that ingenious skill by which the vast erudition, the boundless range, the infinite variety, and the gorgeous magnificence of the details are all wrought together in a symmetrical whole. It is still entitled to be esteemed as the greatest historical work ever written" (Adams, Manual of Historical Literature, 146-7).
