Barnum, P[hineas] T[aylor]
July 2d/'82, Victoria Hotel, Southport, 1838. 2 pages, pen and ink. 1 vols. 8vo. Barnum on His Reciepts from the Barnum & Bailey Circus. Barnum writes to his lecture manager, Major James Pond, declining an invitation to lecture in England and revealing his gross receipts from his Barnum & Bailey's show. Reading in part, "Thanks for your offer for me to lecture . the receipts of our big show were in first 6 days $74,051.00 - the whole ten days over $108,000, and on one day Saturday June 17 $15,742.15. This seems incredible - but is the honest truth. We think that "Jumbo" [an African elephant recently purchased from the London zoo] adds £800 - or $4,000 daily to our receipts - certainly for 8 months or 36 weeks he will add to our receipts $15,000 per week or $540,000! - £109,000 sterling. Is it any wonder that we decline an offer of £100 per day & all expenses for the 75 or 80 winter days that we can't exhibit in America?" Barnum closes with a postscript, "Ask Hoffman if he can tell me how to get the Mexican dwarf girl on resonable terms for Ringling show next summer .". Major James Burton Pond (1838-1903) was a lecture promoter who, in addition to Barnum, represented Samuel Clemens, Winston Churchill and Henry Stanley. Old folds, light browning at margins 2 pages, pen and ink. 1 vols. 8vo

This is the true first editon. Oliver Twist was not issued in parts until 1846. From Wikipedia: The story is of the orphan Oliver Twist, who starts his life in a workhouse and is then sold into an apprenticeship with an undertaker. He escapes from there and travels to London where he meets the Artful Dodger, a member of a gang of juvenile pickpockets, which is led by the elderly criminal Fagin. Oliver Twist is notable for Dickens's unromantic portrayal of criminals and their sordid lives, as well as exposing the cruel treatment of the many orphans in London in the mid-nineteenth century. The alternate title, The Parish Boy's Progress, alludes to Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress, as well as the 18th-century caricature series by William Hogarth, A Rake's Progress and A Harlot's Progress. An early example of the social novel, Dickens satirizes the hypocrisies of his time, including child labour, the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dickens, Charles
London: Richard Bentley, 1838 Three volumes. Illustrated with twenty-four streel-engraved plates by George Cruikshank. First edition, first issue, with "Boz" on the title pages and the "Fireside plate" in Volume III. Publisher's variant horizontally-ribbed cloth, with arabesque designs to the boards in blind, four bands to the spine in blind, lettered in gilt, pale yellow coated endpapers. About very good, with some minor repairs to the cloth at the spines, a few minor chips to the spine ends, a few signatures slightly loosened, hinges very lightly starting inside the covers at the spine ends, some light soiling and dampstaining to the boards, the usual toning and minor spotting to the plates, Vol. II with an erased former owner's inscription to the front free endpaper, a few scattered spots to the otherwise clean pages. Overall, a presentable copy of Dicken's second novel in the original cloth. Smith I, 4. This copy of Oliver Twist is the first issue of the text in book form, with Dickens credited as "Boz" on the title page and with the final plate, "Rose Maylie and Oliver," depicting a fireside scene. Later issues of the first edition contain a cancel title page citing Charles Dickens as the author and have the "Church plate," which shows Rose and Oliver in a church, as the final illustration. As Smith explains in his bibliography, "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" and Dickens was not able to review them "until the eve of publication."

Schumann, Robert, German composer (1810-1856).
[Leipzig], 11. II. 1838. - 8vo. 1 p. A fine letter from the difficult engagement years, written to Clara's stepmother and Robert Schumann's future mother-in-law Clementine Wieck, inquiring whether "Madam Wieck" knows anything new about Clara's approaching appointment as Imperial and Royal Chamber Virtuoso by the Austrian Emperor: "Yesterday, Count Zerbst, a distant relative of the Austrian envoy, visited me and told me, that his lord, the Prince of Schönburg, took a great interest in the matter and that the appointment was imminent. I can imagine your great joy. But please do me the favour and let me know if you hear anything more specific so that I can have it inserted in the journal [.]". - Austria's highest musical award was bestowed on Clara on March 15th during her concert tour in Vienna - an honour all the more remarkable for her being such a young artist, as well as a foreigner. It is, therefore, little surprise that Robert Schumann wished to see the fact announced in the "Neue Zeitschrift für Musik", which he edited from 1834 to 1844. - Noticeable browning; some brownstaining.

"This is one of the earliest books published about Texas after it became a republic...the quotations from participants are of considerable historical value. The descriptive portions add much to our knowledge of the early republic....The work begins with an excellent summary of Mexican history from 1821 to 1835, followed by a sketch of Texas history from 1832 to 1835, ending with Cos' retreat from San Antonio. The events of 1836 are described, including quotations from participating Texans and from...Mexican accounts, such as Almonte's diary....Of particular value are the account of Santa Anna's capture [and his] confrontation with Houston shortly afterwards. Newell was one of the first to seduce Sam Houston into giving particulars of the campaign" - Jenkins. The map shows all of Texas north to the Red River.

La tavola raffigura la "Aeronave rettiremiga" o "Nave aerortoploa" librantesi in volo sopra il grandioso anfiteatro eretto nel prato detto delle Cesure fuori Porta San Vitale, a Bologna, affollato da un immenso pubblico plaudente. Nel mezzo dell'anfiteatro svettano due solide torri lignee che reggono l'argano per il sollevamento dell'aerostato sopra il fornello di muramento. Le due torri erano state costruite da "Giacomo Mingarelli bolognese, capomastro architetto, sommo nell'arte, costruttore di obelischi lignei" (così un sonetto anonimo contenuto nella Descrizione dell'aeronave rettiremiga, di pp. 8, con 1 tavola, pubblicata a Bologna nel 1838. "I professori della facoltà fisico-matematica dell'Università di Bologna, invitati a visitare il modello dell'invenzione del M., ne avevano dato un giudizio favorevole, solo suggerendogli qualche modificazione, come quella di una vela orizzontale che potesse al caso far l'uffizio di paracadute. La forma del pallone era lenticolare, con asse verticale, e recava ai fianchi due ruote munite di pale che entravano in movimento da sé, attesa l'obliquità del suo asse, movimento che poteva essere aiutato dalla navicella sottoposta per mezzo di una catenella. Una vela verticale faceva da timone ed una lampada ad alcool... (sospesa sotto il pallone) manteneva la rarefazione dell'aria".
