      London: Richard Bentley, 1839. - Ainsworth's most celebrated "Newgate" novel.

Ads and half-title (vol. 3 only, as called for) present. 3 vols, 8vo, original blind-stamped gray-green cloth, gilt lettering. Frontis portrait and 27 plates. Sadleir 14; Wolff 53; Cohn, Cruikshank, 12. Cloth a little worn; occasional light foxing to the plates; fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Nix My Dolly Palls Fake Away. Sung by Mrs. Keeley and P. Bedford in the Popular Romance of Jack Sheppard at the Theatre Royal Adelphi; Composed by G. Herbert Rodwell

      London: D'Almaine & Co., 20 Soho Square, [ca. 1839]. (CRUIKSHANK, GEORGE) "15th Edition". Folio (35 x 24 cm.). Lithographed title-page in 8 compartments after George Cruikshank. [2, title, blank verso],1-5 engraved music, [1, blank] pp. Title slightly soiled, text a bit browned. Cohen 698 (first ed.) . The serial publication of Ainsworth's hit novel JACK SHEPPARD, with Cruiskshank's illustrations, had made the exploits of the legendary young burglar, once again, all the rage. Indeed, one of the most popular songs of the day was this canting song, "Nix My Dolly Palls Fake Away"; which was was first performed at the Adelphi Theatre, London, on 28 October 1839 (v. New Grove Opera). The part of Jack Shepphard was played triumphantly by Mary Anne Keeley, and the popularity of the play was so alarming to the Lord Chamberlain, that for years any play containing the name "Jack Sheppard" in its title was censored. This is the play's most famous song, evidently known to every society lady. The wonderful text -- a marvel of Rogue's Cant -- is arranged for vocal duet between between Sheppard and his pal 'Blueskin , mixed chorus, and piano; it also contains footnotes which translate the slang. The scored is preceded by a marvelous pictorial lithographed cover by George Cruikshank, whose illustrations were used as the basis for the sets of the original Adelphi production

        Winter Studies and Summer Rambles in Canada.

      - New-York: Wiley and Putnam, 1839. First edition, in two volumes (viii, [ix], 10-341; iv, 339). Original tan cloth, gilt titles to spine (lightly sunned), impressed decoration. According to the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, “In 1832 her Characteristics of Women, a discussion of Shakespeare’s heroines, made her name on the Continent and in America as well as in England. On a trip to Germany after its publication she was the centre of an admiring group which included Johann Ludwig Tieck and August Wilhelm von Schlegel, and she began a lifelong friendship with Ottilie von Goethe, the poet’s daughter-in-law.” Jameson is better known, in Canada anyway, as the author of this travel book Winter Studies and Summer Rambles (1838) which describes her short stay in winter at Toronto (which she despised) and her tour up through the Great Lakes during the subsequent summer (which delighted her), experiences which gave her much to exercise her wit and intelligence. Her principal later works were largely commentaries on art, an interest connecting her to her father, a miniaturist painter, and to her first venture into Europe as governess to an important, wealthy family. An attractive, clean copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      - London, J.L. Cox and Sons, 1839.4to. Contemporary half calf, spine gilt (sl. rubbed). With lithographed frontispiece and 2 lithographed plates drawn by J.G. Wilkinson after John Davidson, printed by P. Gauri. (6),218 pp.* Privately printed; with armorial bookplate of James Liege Hulett. - John Davidson (1797-1836), an English adventurer, embarked at Falmouth on 1834, taking with him the freed slave Edward Donellan. On arrival at Tangier the British consul begged Davidson to give up his visit to Timbuktu on account of the tribal warfare being waged on the edge of the Sahara, but the explorer pressed on regardless. He arrived at Fez and left for the desert, passing through Marrakesh, and eventually reached the Wadi Num (Noun or Assaka). In the region of Tindouf he was shot dead and his possessions stolen. Donellan continued with the caravan to Timbuktu and was never heard of again. Davidson's letters and most of his journal found their way back to Britain and were privately published in 1839 (Howgego D4). The fine plates depict two views of Wadnoon and one of the river Draha. - A fine copy of a very rare book. Playfair & Brown, 609. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Schmutztitel und Frontispiz stockfleckig, gelegentlich fleckig. Browning, half title and frontispice spotted. Henze II, 22. Nicht in Abbey. John Davidsons (1797-1836) Tagebuchnotizen und Briefe, die sein Bruder drei Jahre nach seiner Ermordung in der Nähe des Wad Nun als Privatdruck herausgab. "He went to Egypt at the end of 1829, visited the Pyramids, and passed overland to Cosseir, where he embarked for India on his way to China and Persia. An attack of cholera, however, drove him back to Cosseir. He made an excursion through Arabia, and visited Palestine, Syria, the Greek Isles, Athens, and Constantinople, collecting much useful geographical information, which he afterwards communicated to the public in papers read at the meetings of the Royal Society and the Royal Institution of London. In 1831 he went to America, visiting Niagara and the Canadas, New York, New Orleans, Tampico, and Mexico. He visited the Pyramids of Choluteca and took their measurement. Elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1832 he settled down for a time to the study of Egyptology. On 13 July 1833 he delivered an address on embalming at the Royal Institution, when he unrolled a mummy in the presence of a deeply interested audience (Athenaeum, 1833, pp. 481-3). His craving for travel was, however, irresistible. He undertook to head an African expedition, of which he defrayed the whole expense himself, and proposed to proceed by way of Fez to Tâfilêlt, and thence, after examining the southern slope of Mount Atlas, to Nigritia, across the Sahara. He quitted England in August 1835, bound for Timbuctoo. Going to Gibraltar he crossed the straits into Morocco, and there his medical knowledge was so highly appreciated by the sultan and his officials that he obtained with great difficulty permission to depart. In a letter to his brother he states that no less than twelve hundred patients passed through his hands while in Morocco. When leaving he was obliged to plead that his stock of medicine was exhausted, and at his request a medicine-chest was forwarded to the sultan from England. He started for the great desert at the end of November 1836, but while stopping at a watering-place called Swekeza he was robbed and murdered on 18 Dec. 1836."

        Erstes Concert des Franz Liszt im Saale der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde Dienstag den 19. November 1839. Broadside program for the second of Liszt's concerts in Vienna, November 19, 1839, a benefit for the Beethoven Memorial Fund

      Wien T. Haslinger... Gedruckt bey J.B. Wallishausser [1839]. 1 page. Quarto, 235 x 184 mm. The program includes the following works, with Liszt at the piano: 1. Scherzo, orage et Finale der Pastoral- Sinfonie von L. von Beethoven... 2. Ariette (il Platano), componirt von Gius. Curci, vorgetragen von Dlle. L. Tuczek, k.k. hof-Opernsaengerinn. 3. Hexameron. Bravour=Variationen ueber den Puritaner=Marsch, componirt von Chopin, Czerny, Herz, Liszt, Piris und Thalberg... 4. Vocal=Quartett fuer vier Maennerstimmen. 5. Ave Maria, von Schubert, Grosse Etude (Nr. 4 in D- moll)... Slightly worn and browned; some overall creasing, foxing and small edge tears; creased along central folds; small portion of blank left margin lacking.. "After travelling for three days and nights, Liszt arrived in Vienna in the early hours of the morning of November 15. His concerts had been sold out days in advance. (Tobias Haslinger acted as his impresario.) Between November 18 and December 4 Liszt gave six matinee recitals in aid of the Beethoven Memorial Fund. The opening concert on November 18 was a gala affair attended by the dowager empress, at which Liszt played his transcription of Beethoven's Pastorale Symphony for the first time. A newspaper article proclaimed him "Protector of Beethoven." This set the tone for the Viennese public, with whom he was immensely popular. Total strangers applauded him in the hotel lobby. Prints of him were sold in the shops, and the ever-resourceful Viennese confectioners sold biscuits in the shape of a grand piano iced with the word "Liszt." The critic Saphir wrote a perceptive article in Der Humorist. In an amusing letter to Marie, Liszt observed that he had becoome so famous that even the doctor treating him for a cold - he had arrived in Vienna with a fever - had suddenly been inundated with new patients requesting not treatment but news of the great pianist." Walker, pp. 280-1. The singer of the ariette by Curci was the noted Viennese soprano Leopoldine Tuczek (1821-1883).\ Liszt chose to perform his virtuosic Transcendental Etude No. 4 ("Mazeppa") in D minor as the final work on the program.

        Modes de Paris (Two Volumes) Petit Courrier des Dames; Bon Ton

      London: S. & J. Fuller, 1839-1847. First edition. Half Vellum. Very Good. 4to. The first volume is 26 by 16.5 cm, the second volume, 28 by 19.5 cm. 214 and 153 hand-colored plates, respectively, for a total of 367 such plates. Notwithstanding the difference in size, the two volumes are bound in a matching half vellum and marbled boards, and they read as a set. The difference in size is NOT because the plates were cut differently, but rather, a reflection of a change in the size of the original printing. The plates were staples of fashion magazines such as Bon Ton, but it is also believed that often such plates were available individually and those that went into these two volumes were a compilation of plates sold singly, as there would be markings in the margins of some if they had been pulled from bound volumes. The plates are mostly of women's fashion, with a smattering of men's, and the collection here facilitates greatly our observance of the then slow but steady evolution of fashion over an eight year period. Number of plate neatly inked in corner of each plate. Scattered light foxing. Soiling to the vellum and wear to the boards.

"These regulations were printed in compliance with a joint resolution of Congress approved by President Lamar on January 23, 1839....Except for the section at the end, 'Uniform of the Army,' they follow closely the GENERAL REGULATIONS FOR THE ARMY OF THE UNITED STATES, City of Washington (copy in my collection). These sixteen pages on the uniform appear to be a revision of the material issued in a twelve-page pamphlet, No. 374 here, and like that pamphlet are preceded by General Order No. 5, dated Houston, May 23, 1839, ordering the adoption of the uniform....If this binding was done in Texas, those copies with the original binding are the earliest examples of Texas binding of which I have a record" - Streeter TEXAS.

Dos uniformément insolés, rousseurs, mais bon exemplaire. Ex-libris héraldique. Edition originale de cet ouvrage monumental qui appartient à la seconde partie de la vie du baron de Gérando (1772-1842), constitue comme une sorte de testament et synthétise ses efforts sociaux au cours des premières années de la Monarchie de Juillet : en effet, à partir des années 1820, il se concentra surtout sur les questions d'enseignement et d'assistance, multipliant les initiatives en ce sens (fondation de la Société de morale chrétienne, ouverture d'asiles pour les adolescents sortis des hôpitaux, correspondance avec les principaux philanthropes européens, etc.).

      Newburyport, [ Massachusetts] 1839 - Autograph Letter Signed, to an unidentified recipient, Newburyport, [ Massachusetts], September 28, 1839. "I Trust We May Live To See The Stars & Stripes Floating Over The Citadel Over Quebec." Partial Transcript In all this matter of our British relations, I think the public mind is poisoned by the undue circulation & influence of the New York newspapers.Englishmen are editors or sub-editors in several of the papers that profess to be American. New York lives, thrives & has its being in the importation of British goods.in the blindness of their stupidity, the great Wall Street presses have bused & undervalued the Canadian.& done every thing they could to rivet the chains of the Canadians, though the independence of the latter & their annexation to the United States would of itself double the wealth & importance of New York. With time, however, I cannot but hope that the whole country will regard the questions as we do.I trust we may live to see the stars & stripes floating over the citadel of Quebec.

His career as a preacher came to an end in 1835 due to a throat disease, and he was sent to Asia by the American Baptist Foreign Missionary Union, "to examine into, and with the missionaries adjust, many points not easily settled by correspondence; to compare the various modes of operation in different missions" in the region. His three years of travel resulted in revealing descriptions of social, economic, and political conditions as well as meticulous reports on natural resources, the opium trade, agriculture, religion, and slavery.
