        The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. With 39 illustrations by Phiz and portrait

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1839., 1839. First Edition, First Issue with 'visiter' for 'sister', p.123, and 'latter' for 'letter', p.160. Octavo. Contemporary half green morocco with gilt raised bands and gilt titles to spine, green cloth boards, marbled end papers and edges. Upper outer joint repaired, front endpaper neatly replaced. Some browning to plates, although a little less than usual. A sound, handsome copy. Dickens' comic novel centres around the exploits of Nicholas Nickleby, a young man who must support his mother and sister after his father dies. The tone of the work is burlesque, with Dickens usual snipe at social injustice. Many memorable characters are introduced, including Nicholas' malevolent uncle Ralph, playing the role of an antagonist, who thinks Nicholas will never amount to anything, and the villainous Wackford Squeers, who operates a squalid boarding school at which Nicholas temporarily serves as a tutor.

        The Collected Works of Davy. Edited by his brother, John Davy

      London: Smith, Elder and Co. 1839., 1839. First Collected Edition of the works of this important chemist / scientist. 9 volumes, 8vo. Finely bound in recent half speckled calf with gilt decorated raised bands, red title label and gilt titles to spines, marbled boards. With illustrations throughout. Some light foxing and minimal marking. A superb set. The final volume includes the lesser known fantasy writing 'Consolations In Travel; or, The Last Days of A Philosopher' (written in 1830), mentioned in Bleiler. Humphry Davy (1778-1829) became well known due to his experiments with the physiological action of some gases, including laughing gas (nitrous oxide) - to which he was addicted, once stating that its properties bestowed all of the benefits of alcohol but was devoid of its flaws. Davy later damaged his eyesight in a laboratory accident with nitrogen trichloride. In 1801 he was nominated professor at the Royal Institution of Great Britain and Fellow of the Royal Society, over which he would later preside. He later invented the Davy lamp which was a great and well known success (Wikipedia). Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [281]

Later 19th-century wrappers, with original rear blue wrapper bound in.

An extremely rare mid-19th-century Cuban maritime manual consisting of various formulas for calculating longitude, with accompanying lunar tables employed in the process of determining location at sea.

        Songs of Innocence and of Experience, Shewing the Two Contrary States of the Human Soul.

      - London: W. Pickering, Chancery Lane, and W. Newbery, 6, Chenies Street, Bedford Square, 1839. Small 8vo, xxi, (3), 74pp. Original pebbled plum cloth, first state of the binding decorated in blind on both covers, the cartouche smaller than in the 2nd binding and with ruled lines in blind not present in the 2nd binding, "BLAKE'S POEMS." stamped in gilt on the spine (rather than on the front cover, as in the 2nd binding), ruled lines in blind on the spine (lacking in the 2nd binding). Upper joint just splitting but holding, similar split to the hinge. A remarkably fine copy, fresh and clean. First Typographical Edition, the issue with the poem ÒThe Little VagabondÓ not present - this has long been held to be the first issue (see Keynes) although others have claimed that it was present but cancelled due to content and thus this is the second issue. Either case is plausible; copies of this issue turn up more frequently in our experience, which is to say very rarely. The only other copy known in this binding is in the Essick collection and is inscribed on the front free endpaper: "James J. G. Wilkinson [the editor of the volume] / 13 Store Street / Bedford Square. / July 16. 1839." This date is one week after the printed date of the "Preface," page xxi. It was acquired Feb. 1997 from Quaritch through John Windle ($4000). The preface (by J.J. Garth Wilkinson) gives a mostly favorable account of BlakeÕs life in the context of his work and concludes stirringly: ÒIf the volume gives one impulse to the New Spiritualism which is now dawning on the world;-if it leads one reader to think, that all Reality for him, in the long run, lies out of the limits of space and time; and that spirits, and not bodies, and still less garments, are men; if it gives one blow, even the faintest, to those term-shifting juggleries which usurp the name of ÒPhilosophical Systems,Ó (and all the energies of all the forms of genuine Truth must be henceforth expended on these effects,) it will have done its work in its little day.Ó Keynes, Blake, 135 (issue without ÒThe Little Vagabond"). Bentley, Blake Books, 171 (this issue said by Bentley to have two leaves cancelled by the editor out of prudishness). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Bad Heilbrunn. Oberbayerischer Bauernhof mit einer Wäscherin am Brunnen, spielendem Kind und einem Holzträger.

      1839 1839 - Feder und Pinsel in Grau und Bleistift, grau laviert, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts oben bezeichnet und datiert „Heilbrunn 27. Sept. 1839.". 26,3:34,1 cm. In den Rändern ungleich. In der Graphischen Sammlung München befindet sich eine ebenfalls auf 1838 datierte, grau lavierte Bleistiftzeichnung, betitelt „Oberbayerischer Bergbauernhof". Tochter des Landschaftsmalers, Kunsthändlers und Musikers J.B. Stuntz (1753-1836), der zusammen mit J.N. Strixner (1782-1855) und F. Piloty (1786-1844) in München eine Steindruckerei gegründet hatte. Ausgebildet bei ihrem Vater und seinen beiden Kompagnons, arbeitete sie erst in der lithographischen Anstalt. Hier hatte sie mit eigenen Folgen großen, auch finanziellen Erfolg, weshalb sie für die Familie einen Sommersitz in Thalkirchen bei München erwerben konnte. 1813 ging sie zum Studium der Historienmalerei an die Münchner Akademie und war Schülerin von J.P. von Langer (1756-1824) und dessen Sohn R. von Langer (1783-1846). Bereits 1815 sollte sie mit ihren ersten ausgestellten Ölgemälden große Anerkennung finden. 1818 folgte eine Reise nach Paris, wo sie die Werke der Alten Meister studierte und vor allem nach Raffael kopierte. Ein dreijähriges Reisestipendium ermöglichte ihr anschließend einen Aufenthalt in Italien. Hier begegnete sie Louise Seidler (1786-1866) und entdeckte, auch durch F. Overbeck angeregt, die religiöse Malerei. 1821 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia di San Luca. Nach München 1822 zurückgekehrt, heiratete sie 1823 den ihr seit 1818 bekannten Kgl. Bayer. Vize-Oberstallmeister Wilhelm Frh. von Freyberg. Danach wechselnde Aufenthalte in München und Thalkirchen sowie Fortsetzung ihrer künstlerischen Tätigkeit. Sie schuf ein großes Œuvre an Landschaften, Porträts, Historien- und Genrebildern sowie religiösen Motiven. Von der in ihrer Zeit als eine der besten Zeichnerinnen und Malerinnen gerühmten Künstlerin besitzen zahlreiche Museen und Graphische Sammlungen Werke, so in München, Berlin und Wien.

Als Graphiker beschäftigte sich Klein mit der Technik der Radierung und Lithographie.

        The Thousand and One Nights

      UK: Charles Knight. "London, Charles Knight & Co., 1839-1841. First Edition. Three Hardback Volumes. Near Fine condition. Some surface wear and bumping to all the boards, title page of third volume repaired (seemingly a professional repair - noticeable but a good repair). Hard to find in original cloth. Lane's translation is one of the best-known translations of the Thousand and One Nights, though critics have been in disagreement over its superiority or inferiority for decades. The present copy is Lane's first translation and the first edition in English to be translated directly from the Arabic [previous English editions were from Galland's French translation, the present edition being based primarily on a 'superior' Egyptian edition]. Lane writes in the introduction that Galland 'perverted' the Arabian Nights insofar as he was insufficeintly accustomed to Arabic culture, and therefore could provide only an insufficient translation. The present edition is noted too for its tendency toward providing a more instructional and culturally accurate rendition, something that Lane [and his publisher Charles Knight] thought an important enterprise. On top of this Lane wrote for Victorian sensibilities and highly-censored his translation, which brought the stories to a different audience [compare with Burton's later translation]. Lane's edition is copiously annotated and carries hundreds of illustrations from William Harvey. The Arabian Nights stand alongside the tales of the Brother's Grimm, Hans Andersen and Charles Perrault as the principal foundations for children's literature, as well as for speculative fiction in general [and indeed literary fiction]. Lane's translation has been overshadowed somewhat by Burton's 1883 publication, but the stories in the three volumes do stand alone as milestones in the history of the fantastic." 1839-1841 . Near Fine. Hardback. 1st Edition. 1839.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      München, 1. XI. 1839.. 6 SS. auf 2 gehefteten Doppelblättern mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). Gr.-4to.. Schönes, langes Schreiben an den Stuttgarter Bankier Gottlob Heinrich Rapp (1761-1832), den Schwager seines Bruders Sulpiz Boisseree, hinsichtlich einer möglichen Rückkehr der beiden nach Württemberg: "Verehrtester Freund! Ich beantworte erst heute Ihren lieben Brief, weil die Beantwortung desselben mir etwas schwer geworden, da gar manches zu bedenken und vieles zu berücksichtigen war, so daß ich kaum zu einem Entschluß kommen kannte. - Ehe ich Ihnen jedoch denselben mittheile muß ich Ihnen meinen innigsten Dank ausdrücken, für Ihre so freundschaftliche Theilnahme, die ich schon so oft erfahren habe. Möge es mir gewehrt werden Ihnen die Meinige einst zu zeigen und zugleich wie dankbar ich dafür bin. - Obschon mein Bruder jetzt sehr wohl ist, so habe ich dennoch nicht gewagt ihm ihren Brief mitzutheilen, da dieser ihn sehr beunruhigen würde und leicht eine Stöhrung in seiner Reconvaleszens hervorbringen könnte. Zudem steht die Sache noch in weitem Felde, und muß erst zu Faden geschlagen werden ob sie überhaupt möglich ist. Diesen Versuch glaube ich, kann ich mit Ihnen allein machen. Gelingt er, so daß eine Hoffnung vorhanden ist, aus dem Plan könne etwas werden; so theile ich ihn meinem Bruder mit, sonst aber laßen wir ihn ganz in seiner Ruhe. - Ihr Gedanke uns wieder nach Stuttgart zu ziehen hat so vieles für sich, daß ich troz manchen trüben Erinnrungen gerne darauf eingehe. Wäre mein Bruder noch so frisch und kräftig wie in alten Zeiten, so möchte die Sache sich leicht oder doch leichter machen wie jetzt. Mein Bruder könnte dann kräftig eingreifen und einen Posten als Direcktor der Kunstschule vollkommen ausfüllen. - Jetzt aber wo seine Gesundheit so schwankend ist, wo er nicht auf sich zählen kann, geht dieses nicht. Er könnte als Direcktor nur die Oberaufsicht führen, seine Gedanken aussprechen und der unter ihm stehende Inspecktor müßte sie ausführen und die Geschäfte besorgen so nemlich daß wenn mein Bruder leidend wäre, diese ohne alle Stöhrung ihren Weg fortgingen. - Ob sich dieses so gestalten und arangieren läßt steht dahin und ist sehr zu bezweifeln. Sollte jedoch die Regierung einen so großen Werth auf die Gewinnung meines Bruders zu dieser Stelle legen, daß sie auf solch eine freie Stellung einginge, so könnte und dürfte das Gehalt des Inspecktors nicht viel geringer als Jenes des Direcktors sein, da ihm die größere Arbeit zufiele und ich die Ansichten meines Bruders in dieser Beziehung kenne. - Mit der Berufung meines Bruders zu diesem Posten aber wäre meine Versetzung verbunden, da wie Sie wissen er sich nicht von mir trennen mag. - Eine Versetzung von mir aber ist mit mancherley Opfer verbunden [...]". - Ab 1819 hatten die Brüder bereits in Stuttgart gelebt, wo ihre berühmte Altmeistersammlung öffentlich ausgestellt worden war. Rapp hatte vergeblich versucht, die Sammlung dauerhaft für Stuttgart zu gewinnen: König Ludwig von Bayern erwarb sie 1827 für die Münchner Alte Pinakothek; Sulpiz Boisseree war 1835 zum bayerischen Oberbaurat und Generalkonservator ernannt worden.

The present edition was published with Sir Timothy's permission on condition that it should contain no memoir of the poet, a condition which was partially overcome by the addition of copious notes" (Grannis).
