        The life and adventures of Nicholas Nickleby containing a faithful Account of the Fortunes, Misfortunes, Uprisings, Downfallings, and complete Career of the Nickleby Family

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1839. Octavo, frontispiece portrait of Dickens by Finden after Maclise and 39 plates by Hablot K. Browns ("Phiz'), plates foxed as usual; half black morocco, marbled edges and endpapers, spine decorated in gilt, no half-title, re-hinged. First edition, bound from parts. Of the two critical issue points "latter" at p. 160 is present, but at p. 123 the correction to "sister" has been effected. An early novel in Dickens's oeuvre, and the work with the most stylistic similarities with his first novel Pickwick Papers, it also continued his trademark and innovative use of the oppressed child as nexus of social criticism. With the bookplate of the Dickens collector B.W. Matz.

        Bei Kerzenschein betendes junges Mädchen, Halbfigur hinter einer Balustrade.

      . Aquarell und Pinsel in Grau, über Bleistift, auf gelblichem Velin, rechts unten signiert "C. Andreae". 13,4:10 cm. - Kleine Restaurierung in der linken unteren Ecke. Miniaturhaft ausgeführtes Aquarell, das vermutlich als Vorzeichnung für eine Illustration entstanden ist.. Andreae war 1839-1844 Schüler der Düsseldorfer Akademie bei C.F. Sohn (1805-1867) und W. von Schadow (1788-1862). Im Mai 1845 reiste er nach Italien (Rom, Neapel, Sorrent), wo er mit den Nazarenern P. Cornelius, F. Overbeck und E. von Steinle verkehrte. Durch Steinle lernte er die Wachs-Tempera-Technik für monumentale Wandmalerei kennen. 1848 kehrte Andreae nach Deutschland zurück, folgte Cornelius nach Berlin, wo sich seine Hoffnung zerschlug, dessen Mitarbeiter zu werden. Er verbrachte die nächsten Jahre wieder in Italien, bevor er sich 1853 in Berlin und 1857-1881 in Dresden niederließ. 1881 übernahm er das elterliche Gut Helenaberg bei Sinzig. Andreaes Werke zeichnen sich durch großen Schönheitssinn aus. Leichtigkeit in der Komposition und schnelle Schaffenskraft ermöglichten ihm während seines langen Lebens außergewöhnlich zahlreiche Werke hervorzubringen.

        The Voiage and Travaile of Sir John Maundevile Which Treateth of the Way to Hierusalem; and of the Marvayles of Indie with Other Ilands and Countryes. [The Voyage and Travels of Sir John Mandeville]

      London Edward Lumley 1839. VG : in very good condition. Sm. mark to title page. Marbled eps and fore-edge Reprint Leather cover with raised bands and gilt emblem of the Northern Light Board to spine 230mm x 140mm (9" x 6"). xiv, xiii-xvii, vi-xii [misbound], 326pp. B/w frontis drawing and woodcut reproductions within the text. This 1839 edition comprised part of the collection of the Northern Heritage Light house Trust. It is based on the 1725 printed manuscript in the Cottonion Library, as indicated in the preface by J.O. Halliwell. The Travels of Sir John Mandeville described the travels of an English knight who left England c.1322 to journey throughout Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Persia, and Turkey. The Knight returned with fantastical stories of strange beasts, monsters and mythical creatures and of the strange islands that they inhabited. Interestingly, surprisingly accurate geographical descriptions are woven into Mandeville's stories and whimsy. The authorship of Mandeville's Travels remains unknown. Historians cannot decide whether the author was French or English, though generally agree that the book was originally composed in French. The character of Mandeville, was almost certainly fictitious.

        Le Daguerreotype

      Paris: Bachelier, 1839. 1st edition. <p>[Daguerre, Louis-Jacques-Mandé (1787-1851).] Arago, François (1786-1853). Le Daguerréotype. In: Comptes rendus IX (July-Dec. 1839): 250-67. 4to. [4], 903, [1]pp. Paris: Bachelier, 1839. Later wrappers, uncut & unopened. Slight browning & foxing but fine.</p><p>First Edition of the first official disclosure of the "daguerreotype" photographic process invented in the 1830s by Louis Daguerre (1787-1851), preceding the publication of Daguerre&#39;s Historique de description des procédés du daguerreotype et du diorama (1839). The daguerreotype was the first practical and commercially viable photographic process, and the first to be announced publicly. Daguerre, an artist and chemist, had been working for over a decade on methods of fixing images photographically, initially in partnership with Joseph Nicéphore Niépce (1765-1833), whose "heliographic" process, developed in the 1820s, is now recognized as the first successful example of photography. After Niépce&#39;s death Daguerre continued investigating photographic methods on his own, eventually coming up with the famous "daguerreotype" process, in which an image is exposed directly onto a mirror-polished surface of silver coated with silver halide particles.</p><p>After trying unsuccessfully to market his process to private shareholders Daguerre looked to the French government for funding, enlisting the support of the distinguished astronomer and physicist François Arago, permanent secretary of the Académie des Sciences and a member of the Chamber of Deputies. Arago briefly announced Daguerre&#39;s discovery to the Académie on January 7, 1839, then persuaded the government to purchase Daguerre&#39;s patent in exchange for lifetime annuities granted to Daguerre and the estate of Niépce. On July 3, 1839 Arago submitted a report on the daguerreotype to the Chamber of Deputies, and on August 19 Daguerre&#39;s process was "given to the world" in the present paper read by Arago at the Académie des Sciences. </p><p>This volume of the Comptes rendus contains 24 other papers on photography, mostly commenting on Daguerre&#39;s invention. Among the contributors were Hippolyte Bayard (1801-87), promoter of a rival photographic method based on that of Fox Talbot; Alfred Donné (1801-78), who would later publish the Cours de micrographie (1844); and Noel Marie Lerebours (1807-73), seller of photographic equipment and distributor of Daguerre&#39;s photographic manual.

        Index Entomologicus; or a complete Illustrated Catalogue, consisting of 1944 figures, of the Lepidopterous Insects of Great Britain

      London : William Wood, 1839 A very good copy of the 1st edition, to which has been added the later supplement and plates. An interesting copy which has clearly been bound later (possibly in 1865 - there is a signature of John Walter Whelan for 1865 on the title page and a pasted &#39;with supplement&#39; added) so, although the directions for the binder list 54 plates, there are 59, and lined paper has been interleaved with the species lists, presumably for the owner to make notes of sightings. With title page; preface; abbreviations; directions to the binder; errata; list of subscribers; catalogue and plates to Plate 51; Additions (plate 52); Doubtful British species (plates 53 and 54); Additions to the Second Edition (plates 55-59); Index (298pp); Catalogue of the British Lepidoptera Figured in this Work - by Mr Stephens 21pp; Errata and Addenda 2pp. The author aimed to produce a complete list of British species with small high quality outline illustrations so that collectors/naturalists could identify what they saw more easily (in effect a field guide). This copy has probably been rebound in the 1900&#39;s so has a near fine half leather/marbled board binding with red title label and gilt tooled butterflies on the spine. The contents are complete. There is occasional browning and the odd bit of grubbiness but this is a very good copy.

        A Conchological Manual.

      G.B. Sowerby, London 1839 - Octavo, with 24 handcoloured engraved plates; early ownership inscriptions on the front pastedown and title-page; a little shaken, but very good in original cloth. First edition of this attractive and profusely colour-illustrated guide to shells. Shell-collecting was a most popular eighteenth- and nineteenth-century pastime. During the great era of voyaging, shells from exotic lands were eagerly sought by specialist collectors and by the genteel classes to fill the curiosity cabinets considered indispensable in the well-appointed home. Sowerby aimed this Manual at the serious conchologist and dilettante alike. In his introduction he claims that 'the study of shells? presents a fund of intellectual gratification, to many who cannot follow it beyond the cabinet and boudoir. They may examine, with admiration and moral improvement, the beautiful colouring and exquisite architecture of these wonders of the deep?'. A number of the species included in the Manual are found in Australian or Pacific waters, including Aspergillum, Ilba found on Kangaroo Island, the Myochama from New South Wales, the Nautilus, and the Stomatia, all of which are illustrated. George Brettingham Sowerby junior was part of a remarkable family of natural history illustrators. His grandfather James was a botanical illustrator par excellence and illustrated, amongst a host of other works, J.E. Smith's Botany of New Holland (1793) and Shaw's Zoology of New Holland. His three sons followed in his footsteps, as did three grandsons and one great-grandson. George Brettingham junior took over the mantle of conchologist from his father, and in time passed it on to his son of the same name. He was described after his death as 'a mediocre naturalist, a shocking latinist, but an excellent draughtsman'. He went on to produce a large body of work including the completion of a number of his father's projects, the most significant of which was the five-volume Thesaurus Conchyliorum, which took three generations of Sowerbys over forty-five years to complete.

        La Science Populaire? Voyage de La Perouse autour de monde

      Jules Renouard, Paris 1839 - Duodecimo, unopened and untrimmed, some foxing (more noticeable on some gatherings); very good in the original printed wrappers, a few chips and stains but rather good. I, Claudius. Charming account of the La Pérouse voyage for children, with notice of the later discoveries relating to the great French mariner, including chapters on d'Entrecasteaux, Dumont d'Urville and Peter Dillon. These concluding sections concentrate on the wrecks at Vanikoro and the monument erected there by Dumont d'Urville, with the final section describing the tragic irony of the fact that d'Entrecasteaux had sailed past Vanikoro in May 1793. This work was published by Charles-Claude Ruelle under the pseudonym "Claudius" as part of a longer series of occasional works on all manner of subjects, with separate volumes on for example Columbus, Drake, and Ross, but also on subjects such as electricity, science, the Bible, and French history. This La Pérouse volume seems to be quite uncommon; it is not noted in Forbes' bibliography. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Literatur: Jahn 319, I (von VI), mit der noch hellen Stelle im Vordergrund und dem noch unbeschrifteten Tablett. - Vollrandiges Exemplar, etwas stockfleckig.. Bereits als Achtjähriger erhielt Klein Zeichenunterricht durch den Maler G.C. II. von Bemmel (1765-1811). 1802 war G.P. Zwinger (1779-1819) an der Nürnberger Zeichenschule sein Lehrer. 1805-1811 war er Lehrling bei dem Maler, Zeichner und Kupferstecher A. Gabler (1762-1834). Ab 1811 Studium an der Kunstakademie in Wien. 1814 und 1816 folgten Reisen nach Ungarn und 1815 eine Studienreise an Main und Rhein. 1818 hielt er sich in München auf, wo er mit P. von Hess (1792-1871) und M.J. Wagenbauer (1775-1829) verkehrte. 1819 ging er in seine Heimatstadt zurück. Von dort aus unternahm er mit seinen Freunden J.C. Erhard (1795-1822), den Brüdern F.P. (1779-1840) und H. Reinhold (1788-1825) sowie E. Welker (1788-1857) eine Reise ins Salzkammergut. Von Ende 1819 bis August 1821 weilte Klein in Italien, kehrte dann aber nach Nürnberg zurück. 1833 wurde er zum Mitglied der Berliner Kunstakademie ernannt. 1839 zog er nach München, wo er bis zu seinem Tode leben sollte. 1848 begann ein Augenleiden, was in den nächsten Jahren zu einer zunehmenden Beeinträchtigung des Sehvermögens führen und schließlich ab 1871 das Arbeiten unmöglich machen sollte. Als Graphiker beschäftigte sich Klein mit der Technik der Radierung und Lithographie.

During his stay in Surinam he had an eye for daily life in Surinam, he belonged to the opponents of the abolition of slavery: the Surinam slave-owners, from humanitarian motives and from natural self-interest, by no means treat their slaves as badly as is asserted by those who are in favour of abolition. He cannot avoid picturing the harsh and cruel daily existence of the slaves and explaining why they run away, revolt against their masters and are filled with hatred towards the whites. When describing their dance-festivals, he says that the need to find an outlet for their misery accounts for the frenzy with which they throw themselves into it (Introduction by S.W. de Groot to the facsimile edition). He made a large number of charming and meticulous drawings. These very attractive set of views of Surinam include fine scenes of native life, showing costumes, dwellings, ceremonies, festivals, recreations, interiors, utensils, etc. of the negro- and Indian population. Beautiful lithographed plates-book on the people and life in Surinam. - Except some marginal foxing as usual, a fine large-paper copy.Sabin 4737; Muller, America, p.169; Suriname-Cat.

Pearce." From the preface: "The object of the present treatise is to open to the eye of the young student every intricate part of Genethliacal Astrology. It is true that many works have already appeared professing to do this, but the generality of them are replete with the most extravagant and ridiculous absurdities; and, it may be safely added, that no complete work on this science, found exclusively on the principles of mathematics and natural philosophy, has yet been presented to the public." Genethliacal Astrology, also known as Natal Astrology, "is the system of astrology based on the concept that each individual's personality or path in life can be determined by constructing a natal chart for the exact date, time, and location of that individual's birth" (Wikipedia).

      London: Edward Moxon, Dover Street, 1839 - "This edition of Mrs. Shelley's was supposed, when published, to be definitive. That she did not edit one earlier was due to the promised exacted by Sir Timothy Shelley that she would not try to bring his son's name into public notice during his own lifetime. 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) First collected edition. 4 vols., 8vo.

        The Practical Ship-Builder

      NY, 1839. NY, 1839. b/w folding plates. Oblong 4to. x-107 pp. plus plates. This is one of the legendary rarities in the literature of marine architecture, being the first American treatise on shipbuilding, and the most influential text until Griffiths published his works on clipper ships in the 1850s. Lauchlan wrote it as a young man, after a youth spent in the shipyards of New York, having served with his more famous brother Donald as an apprentice to Isaac Webb. (Later in life he would command some of his brother&#146;s great clipper ships, including Sovereign of the Seas.) This work is notable for its glossary of shipbuilding terms, its direct and detailed treatment of shipbuilding techniques, and its seven folding plates illustrating, among other things, plans for a schooner, a pilot boat and, interestingly, a steam ship with a hull designed to resist the unique stresses on such a vessel. Scattered staining throughout, folding plates professionally laid down. Chipping to outer edges of a few of the plates, not affecting image. Bound in original mottled calf, spine laid down, with original label. Housed in a modern slipcase with a copy of the 1940 reprint, itself a scarce book, being limited to 250 copies. This reprint also includes as essay on M&#146;Kay by historian and descendant Richard McKay. An excellent working set of the most important book in American marine architecture. Worldcat shows only four libraries holding copies. Not in Scott. Brewington, p. 95, who calls it &#147;Rare.&#148;
