        Finely engraved admission ticket to the coronation of Queen Victoria.

      London: 1838 - Oblong octavo (162 x 225 mm). Red paper, embossed stamp of The Earl Marshal of England. Numbered by hand "364". Two vertical folds, remains of paste at top edge of verso (where removed from an album). In excellent condition. Rare admission ticket to Victoria's coronation on 28 June 1838, issued to Lady Aylmer (1775-1862, née Louisa Anne Call), who married Matthew Whitworth-Aylmer, 5th baron Aylmer, in 1801; he later became Governor General of British North America and Lieutenant Governor of Lower Canada (1830). "He and Lady Aylmer took their vice-regal responsibilities seriously, contributing generously to a variety of causes, such as an emigrant fund, the Female Orphan Asylum, and the Quebec Driving Club (one of a number of organizations of which Lady Aylmer became patroness). They sought to foster the arts and culture, and attended many community activities, from ploughing matches to annual races in Trois-Rivières where Aylmer donated a silver cup to be awarded for a horse bred within the province" (Dictionary of Canadian Biography). However, after the Lower Canada Rebellion of 1837-38, Aylmer was dismissed and the couple sailed for England: "Aylmer's mood was not improved by a terrifying return voyage" (ibid), described by Lady Aylmer in Narrative of the passage of the 'Pique' across the Atlantic (1837)- one of the earliest book dedicated to the newly ascended Victoria.

        Critick of Pure Reason

      1838. First Edition . KANT, Immanuel. Critick of Pure Reason. Translated from the Original of Immanuel Kant. London: William Pickering, 1838. Octavo, period-style full green morocco with elaborately gilt-decorated spine and boards, raised bands, marbled endpapers. $4700.First edition in English of KantÂ’s major work, representing the “full maturity” of his philosophical thought.The first of his three Critiques, Kant's Critick of Pure Reason (first published in German in 1781), represents the ""full maturity"" of his philosophical thought. It treats the problem of ""how it is possible for the individual thinking subject to connect together the parts of his experience in the form we call cognitionÂ… The influence of Kant is paramount in the critical method of modern philosophy. No other thinker has been able to hold with such firmness the balance between speculative and empirical ideas. His penetrating analysis of the elements involved in synthesis, and the subjective process by which these elements are realized in the individual consciousness, demonstrated the operation of 'pure reason'; and the simplicity and cogency of his arguments achieved immediate fame"" (PMM 226). With rear errata leaf; bound without half title, publisher's advertisements. Harris, 85. See Norman 1197; Palmquist Kt1. Text fine, beautifully bound.

        Illustrations to Dante’s Inferno.

      7 plates. [London: for John Linnell, 1838]. 7 plates, oblong folio, printed on laid paper only (not on India), lightly cleaned, in fine condition. First printing (subsequent to a few proofs possibly pulled by Blake himself) preceding the 1838 printing on laid india on wove paper. Essick states (Blake Quarterly vol. 24, issue 3): “The next impressions to be pulled after Blake’s own working proofs are probably those printed directly on laid paper (not to be confused with India paper laid on wove) showing clear wire and chain lines, the latter approximately 3.7 cm. apart. Such a set was sold from the Doheny Memorial Library at Christie’s New York, 21 February 1989, lot 1713, plate 2 illustrated in the auction catalogue[this set]. Part of a watermark, or countermark, “A & D,” is present in plate 3. The heavy foxing of most impressions in this set [now cleaned] cannot mask the fact that these are superb impressions that justify a record price. All major engraved lines are dark, rich, and precise, while the drypoint sketching lines yet to be cut with the graver are delicately yet fully printed. Each plate in this suite reveals its superiority over all India-paper impressions I have seen. Much of this excellence is the result of expert inking and wiping of the plates’ surfaces, but the quality of these impressions also indicates that the copperplates had not begun to show any effects of wear. The clarity with which each line is printed, even in densely engraved passages, without any blurring of the boundaries between lines, suggests that the edges of each incision were still sharp and had not yet rounded to a gradual slope. This rounding can begin to occur after as few as ten impressions have been pulled from a copperplate. This initial wear is probably caused both by running the plates through the rolling press and by the inking process, for the craftsman must wipe the surface of an intaglio copperplate with dozens of strokes of his hand in preparation for taking a single impression.”

A well-to-do botany professor who gave up academia to devote himself full-time to a successful career as lecturer and writer of popular scientific works, Schleiden made a name for himself through the present paper, which provoked wide discussion and was quickly translated into French and English. Schleiden was the first to postulate that plant tissue is composed of aggregates of individual cells, and attempted in this article to describe the development of the vegetable cell. His mistaken view based on a theory "as old as the study of the cell itself" (DSB), was that the cell develops from a nucleus or "cytoblast' which crystallizes within an amorphous primary liquid composed of sugar, gum and mucous. Although this theory of spontaneous generation of the cell was erroneous, Schleiden's work marked an important stage in the development of modem cell theory. A year later Theodor Schwann was to bring it one step further with his conclusion that cells were the basic unit of animal as well as plant life, and the two are generally regarded as co-founders of the cell or Schleiden-Schwann theory.

"Dieses Vorkommnis wendet Stromeyer die einflussreiche Gunst Dieffenbachs zu und die Operation brach sich nunmehr überall hin Bahn" (Pagel). Very Good.

        Early Autograph Formal Letter in the third person to Mr Hardy (Charles, 1812-1870, Novelist)

      1838 - regretting "that he does not think the accompanying sketch of character sufficient to form a paper in itself. If Mr Hardy can weave it into any little tale, or mingle it in any way with some other characters, Mr Dickens ventures to think its oddity and humour would be much more apparent to general readers. Mr Dickens remembers Mr Hardy's chapter on some old authors, with great pleasure, ." he ends by pointing out "that all payments for contributions to the Miscellany are made at the Publisher's . immediately after the appearance of the current number ." 2 sides 8vo., 48 Doughty Street, 27th December Dickens's literary success began with the 1836 serial publication of The Pickwick Papers. Within a few years he had become an international literary celebrity, famous for his humour, satire, and keen observation of character and society. In November 1836 Dickens became editor of Bentley's Miscellany, a position he held for three years, until he fell out with the owner. 'Mr Hardy' is the writer, critic and teacher of elocution Robert Burns HARDY, of Glasgow, author of Lectures on the drama . First Series: Shakespeare, 1834. His A chapter on some very celebrated authors appeared anonymously in Bentley's Miscellany, Vol. 4, for October 1838, pp. 414-416.

        Journals of the Consultation held at San Felipe de Austn [sic], October 16, 1835. Published by the Order of Congress

      Houston: [Telegraph Power Press], 1838. 12mo. (8 x 4 3/4 inches). 54, [2, blank]pp. Expertly bound to style in half dark purple straight grain morocco over period marbled paper covered boards. Housed in a morocco box. The beginnings of independence in Texas and the formation of the provisional government at the start of the Revolution: the rare first edition of "the record of the proceedings of the group of Texans which first set up a formal ... government for Texas as a state independent of Mexico" (Streeter): a seminal work of Texana and an early Houston imprint. This Journal documents the proceedings of the Consultation in October and early November of 1835, as it guided Texas towards independence amidst the Siege of Bexar. The work includes a printing of the "Declaration of the People of Texas, in General Convention Assembled" (p. 21), a declaration of causes for taking up arms against Mexico preliminary to the Texas Declaration of Independence. On November 13, the Consultation prepared twenty-one articles (pp. 42-49) creating the framework for a provisional government for Texas; from that date, until March 1, 1836, the Consultation was the only governing body in Texas. The formation of the Consultation is described by Streeter: "At a meeting of the citizens of Columbia held on August 15, 1835, it was resolved that 'a consultation of all Texas, through her representatives is indispensable,' ... it having become apparent, because of the opening of hostilities with Mexico, that there would be difficulty in assembling a quorum, on October 11, 1935, a small group, acting on a suggestion made by Stephen F. Austin a fortnight or so before, set up at San Felipe an informal organization sometimes referred to as the 'Permanent Council' and sometimes as the 'General Council of Texas.' The 'Permanent Council' were so informally chosen that this Journals of the Consultation may be regarded as the record of the proceedings of the group of Texans which first set up a formal, though provisional, government for Texas as a state independent of Mexico. They were the body that drew up the Declaration of the People of Texas, in General Convention assembled. These Journals, not printed until 1838, are the first record of all the sessions of the Consultation." Five hundred copies were printed of this record of the birth of an independent Texas; Streeter records fifteen extant, including his own.

        The Fairy Annual

      London: Joseph Robins, 1838. 1 3/8 x 1 11/16". 119 pp. Black leather over boards with gilt title and date on spine, gilt pattern on inside covers with dentelle and gold embossed printer's mark on rear paste-down endpaper, all edges gilt, stamped "bound by Zaehnsdorf" in gilt, in near fine condition. Printed under a pseudonym and dedicated to Queen Victoria, this little book contains fairy tales and short stories by various authors and was chiefly designed for children (Bondy p. 71, Welsh 2759). Finely printed by Richard Watts and bound by Joseph Zaehnsdorf, a well-known Austro-Hungarian binder. Bookplate of Eugene Field (1850 - 1895), well-known American poet. The bookplate is most likely an original as it does not have the family crest and is the correct size of 1 x 1 3/4". However, Field's son was notorious for forging his father's signature and adding a fake bookplate in order to sell books that may have not been part of the original library for a higher value. Therefore, it is impossible to say definitively whether or not this work was originally part of Field's library.

        Map of the United States Territory of Oregon West of the Rocky Mountains. Exhibiting the various Trading Depots or Forts occupied by the British Hudson Bay Company connected with the Western and northwestern Fur Trade.

      U.S. Government. Washington, D.C. Ca. 1838. - Black and white engraved map, 17 1/2 x 20 5/8 inches (44 x 52.5 cm) on sheet 18 3/4 x 22 inches, folded as issued. Scarcely visible foxing in upper margin and upper left of image, but overall fine condition. A significant map in the history of the Pacific Northwest and the United States, which first appeared with the report of Senator Linn on a Bill to authorise the President to occupy the Oregon Territory, and was subsequently published in several other government reports (this marked "S. Doc. No. 470, 25 Con. 2 S" at upper right which was the Linn Report, but here separated from whatever report it was published in). It was intended to "awaken public interest in an American occupation of the vast area then known as Oregon Territory" (Wheat: Mapping the Trans-Mississippi West #434). It was based on the Arrowsmith landmark 1834 map of "British North America". Washington Hood was a Captain in the U.S Corps of Topographical Engineers, working under the direction of Colonel J.J. Abert. A most handsome map, of particular interest given its use in association with the promulgation of the doctrine of "Manifest Destiny," a phrase which first made print in 1845.
