        Life And Adventures Of Nicholas Nickleby, The

      1839. first edition. First EditionWholly UntouchedIn The Scarce Publisher's Presentation Binding DICKENS, Charles. The Life And Adventures Of Nicholas Nickleby. With Illustrations by Phiz. London: Chapman and Hall, 1839. First edition, with thirty of Smith's forty-one first issue text points; first state frontispiece, first state plates with the exception of plates one and two (second state), and plate 31 (forth state). Octavo. xvi, 624 pp. Forty black and white plates, including frontispiece.Publisher's full red-brown pebbled morocco. Four gilt decorated raised bands. Gilt lettered title and "Chas. Dickens" to spine. "London, 1839" stamped in gilt at spine foot. Blindstamped ruled borders and central panel with blindstamped ruled border. Gilt turn ins. All edges gilt. Original pale yellow endpapers. Plates untouched with many toned at perimeters and a few with spotting; unusual as in bound copies the plates are generally found to have been subsequently washed. Rough fore edge to frontispiece. Plate at p. 386 with loss at lower corner. Otherwise excellent copy indeed. Housed in a fleece-lined custom quarter morocco box.While there has been little bibliographical inquiry into leather bound editions of Dickens', our assertion that the volume under notice is in the publisher's presentation binding is based upon strong evidence that, while not conclusive, remains highly compelling and convincing: Patten notes that copies of Nickleby were available in full morocco at a higher price than the cloth binding, this binding's gilt lettering and blindstamped decoration are identical to that of the cloth edition but more to the point, a presentation copy with virtually all binding points found here (though in green morocco) recently fell under the hammer at Sotheby's.Nicholas Nickleby was originally published in twenty numbers, bound in nineteen monthly parts, the last part as a double number from April 1838 through October 1839. The first edition in book form was made up from these parts. "It was the novelist's intention to expose in this story the terrible abuses practiced in the cheap boarding-schools of Yorkshire, and, in order that he realise their true character, he determined to investigate for himself the real facts as to the condition of those notorious seminaries, Accordingly, at the end of January 1838, he and 'Phiz' started on this memorable journey, in bitterly cold weather, and, visiting several schools in the locality, they came into direct contact with the proprietors. One of these was William Shaw, the identical schoolmaster who, some years previously, had been heavily fined for what was represented at the trial as gross maltreatment of his pupils" (Kitton, Dickens and His Illustrators, p. 75). It was Shaw upon whom Dickens based the infamous Squeers. Having made an enemy of his uncle Ralph, Nickolas was sent as an usher to Dotheboys Hall, where Wackford Squeers starved and maltreated forty students under the pretense of education. "The character of Mrs. Nickleby was largely founded upon that of Dickens's mother…[The title character] was founded on Dickens's brother-in-law, Hanry Burnett, a music teacher at Manchester" (Hayward, The Dickens Encyclopedia, p. 115).Phiz, pseudonym of Hablot Knight Browne (1815-1882) "was a skilled and rapid designer, co-operative, witty, and self-effacing, and, in the words of John Harvey, ‘he possessed a talent of real originality, sensitivity, and liveliness, which unfolds with remarkable rapidity and brilliance’ in Dickens's early fiction (Harvey, 103). For the next twenty-three years Browne was Dickens's foremost illustrator and first graphic interpreter. He produced nearly 740 original and duplicate plates, comprising around 570 steel etchings and approximately 170 wrappers and illustrations engraved into boxwood, plus preliminary designs for 866 wood-engravings inserted into the Household Edition (1871–9). Browne illustrated ten of the major novels: Pickwick Papers (1836–7), Nicholas Nickleby (1838–9), The Old Curiosity Shop (1840–41), Barnaby Rudge (1841), Martin Chuzzlewit (1843–4), Dombey and Son (1846–8), David Copperfield (1849–50), Bleak House (1851–3), Little Dorrit (1855–7), and A Tale of Two Cities (1859)." (Oxford DNB Online)."H.K. Browne prepared 39 illustrations for this novel, as well as the cover for the monthly parts, while the portrait frontispiece was engraved by Finden from a painting by Maclise. Because of the the large monthly circulation of the parts, Browne etched as many as four plates, in some cases, of each illustration, and all of them were printed in the initial issue of the parts. Many of the plates from 'Miss Nickleby introduced to her uncle's friends' (page 175) onward contain Arabic or Roman numerals which indicate the order in which they were etched. Most of the numerals are located in the lower right corner, and occasionally in the left. Hatton and Cleaver state that the numeral for Plate 31 ('Mysterious appearance of the gentleman in the small-clothes,' p. 487) appears on the front of the mantleshelf [as here]…The first state of the frontispiece and the first four illustrations contain the imprint of Chapman and Hall. The first state of the frontispiece always appears in the monthly parts; the first four illustrations were issued with and without the imprint in the parts, but the plates without imprints did not appear in the earlier issues of the monthly parts, and may, therefore, be termed 'second states''' (Smith I, 5).An exceptional copy, totally unsophisticated and untouched, in the unusual and scarce publisher's presentation binding.Smith I:5; Eckel p.64; Robert L. Patten, Charles Dickens and his Publishers, p.101. Cf. Sotheby's July 12, 2005 lot 99.

Dessa skildringar äro icke endast de första utan alltjämt bland de yppersta i sitt slag."

Det franska originalet, "De la démocratie en Amerique", utkom 1835-40 och fick stor betydelse för den liberala politiska riktningen, i Sverige inte minst för E. G. Geijer. "Lärjungarnas bibliotek" var en särskild avdelning inom biblioteket som skapades 1863, och som innehöll böcker avsedda för utlåning till eleverna, mot en årlig avgift på 1 krona. Till denna användes dels böcker ur skolans eget bibliotek, dels gåvor, specifikt riktade till denna del av biblioteket. Syftet var att erbjuda eleverna både bildande och underhållande läsning under fritiden samt att vara till vägledning för föräldrarna vid inköp av böcker åt deras barn. Detta var troligen landets första för elever avsedda skolbibliotek

        [Idols of the Mandan Indians [Tab. 25]

      Paris, Coblenz and London: 1839-1842]. Aquatint engraving by Ch. Vogel after Bodmer, proof on india paper mounted, issue without imprint or English title, blindstamp. 16 5/16 x 14 inches. 24 7/16 x 17 5/8 inches. Rare India proof of the Vogel plate. This image was printed from plates attributing the print to three different engravers: 'Ch. Vogel', 'Himely' and 'Hürlimann et Himely'. A highly atmospheric scene executed by Bodmer during the winter of 1833-1834 when the travelers stayed at Fort Clark on the banks of the upper reaches of Missouri River. The hide-wrapped poles represent the sun and the moon, which in turn are symbols of two of the most powerful Mandan deities: the Lord of Life (creator of all things) and the Old Woman Who Never Dies, who was associated with corn and buffalo. The Mandan standing before the effigies is apparently seeking the help of these sacred beings. In Mandan life no important decisions or undertakings were made without this sort of consultation, which generally involved fasting and offerings or sacrifices.Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures.

Av den andra delen trycktes endast dessa fem ark, vilka aldrig såldes i bokhandeln, övriga delar av manuskriptet ligger otryckt i Vetenskapsakademiens samlingar. Den långa växtgeografiska inledningen till del I utgavs även separat under titeln "Öfversigt af Stockholms-traktens natur-beskaffenhet" och har eget impressum daterat 1839. "Stockholms flora" är förmodligen botanikern och innehavaren av bergianska professuren Johan Emanuel Wikströms (1789-1856) viktigaste arbete. Gunnar Eriksson skriver i "Bergianska botanister" att det säkert var Wikströms "förhoppning att floran skulle komma till användning vid Stockholmsläroverken som lärobok och handledning vid botaniska exkursioner och växtinsamlingar." Denna förhoppning grusades av K. F. Thedenius vid samma tid utgav ett särskilt florakompendium avsett för skolbruk. Gunnar Brusewitz skriver i "Resa i tid och rum" om förändringar i den svenska faunan genom historien. "När man läser i de gamla lokalfaunorna och artlistorna, som blev populära kring mitten av 1800-talet, anar man lite av de markanta förändringar, som skedde kring denna tid. Intressant är t.ex. J. E. Wikströms 'Stockholms flora', som kom ut 1840, och som också innehåller ett rikt zoologiskt material."

        St. Etienne du Mont and The Pantheon, Paris

      [London]: 1839. Lithograph by Shotter Boys. Printed in colours by Charles Hullmandel, deluxe edition, trimmed to the subject as issued, mounted on archival mount. 13 7/8 x 11 3/8 inches. A very fine image from Boys' 'Picturesque Architecture in Paris, Ghent, Antwerp, Rouen &c': ''a work of exceeding beauty' (Abbey) and one of the most important in the history of English colour-printing. This print represents part of what was the first serious challenge to the supremacy in England of the hand-coloured aquatint. The plates in Boys' Picturesque Architecture in Paris, Ghent, Antwerp, Rouen &c 'are produced entirely by means of lithography: they are printed with oil-colours, and come from the press precisely as they now appear.' As detailed in the Descriptive Notice, it was strictly stipulated by the publisher that no colour be added, and goes on to state that previous attempts at chromolithography had suffered from an unnatural flatness 'whereas in these views, the various effects of light and shade, of local colour and general tone, result from graduated tone. The atmospheric appearance of the skies, giving day-light appearance to the out-door scenes, is the best evidence of the purity and relevance of the tints of colour; which...combine solidity with transparency'. Boys fully explored the range of possibilities that the new technique offered: one subject is presented as if it were 'a crayon sketch heightened with colour', others 'a sepia drawing, with touches of colour...a slight sketch in water-colours...a finished water-colour...an oil painting', etc. Abbey waxes lyrical about the work: "A very beautiful [work]...Apart from the brilliance, sensitivity, and...mastery of the drawing on stone there is the great...technical and artistic achievement of Hullmandel in making possible the transmission of such drawings, and in developing the cool, transparent, graduated tints, subtle in colouring...the [work] appears to have made a great impression at the time, King Louis Philippe...is said to have presented the publishers with a diamond ring; and a review in a contemporary magazine, Art Union, said: Our recommendation of it to all who love and can appreciate art cannot be given in terms too strong; it is worthy of the highest possible praise. The Work is of exceeding beauty." (AbbeyTravel I, 33). Cf. Abbey Travel I, 33; cf. E. Beresford Chancellor, Picturesque Architecture in Paris..by Thomas Shotter Boys, London: Architectural Press, 1928; cf. Friedman 134; Tooley 105.

      Kjøbenhavn, Bianco Luno, 1839. 8vo. Nice cont. hcalf w. gilt back. Minor wear to hinges and capitals. Some brownspotting due to the paper-quality. A nice and tight copy. (8), 470 pp.. Rare first Danish edition of the monumental main work by one of the absolutely most influential classical economists, David Ricardo, the systematizer of economics. The Danish translation is translated from the third edition, which appeared in 1821.David Ricardo (1772-1823) was born in London as the son of a Dutch Jew. Initially Ricardo was primarily interested in science and mathematics, but after having read Adam Smith's "Wealth of Nations" in 1799, he devoted himself entirely to political economy, and in 1817 he could publish his seminal work "The Principles of Political Economy and Taxation" (see PMM 277). Two years later, in 1819, Ricardo was elected to the Parliament, and became the House's acknowledged expert on economic affairs, -also as such he considerably influenced the opinion towards free trade.There are three classical economists, who must be said to have fundamentally changed political economy, and they are Adam Smith, Thomas Robert Malthus, and David Ricardo, -the three main founders of "modern economic analysis". On the basis of "The Wealth of Nations", classical political economy could be founded by Malthus and Ricardo, -in his "Principles". Ricardo was in doubt as to whether he should publish his later so exceedingly famous work, but was persuaded to do so by his friend James Mill, chief Apostle of the Utalitarians, and so he did in 1817, when the work presented the population of Great Britain with some very unexpected conclusions. Enlarging on the Physiocrats, Ricardo places the interest of the landlord and that of the community in the most violent opposition, -he states: "the interest of the landlord is necessarily opposed to the interest of every other class in the community." On the grounds of this theory, he gathered quite a number of opponents, who considered this the embodiment of injustice and strongly opposed of his theories. "Ricardo, in his paradox to arrest attention, outlined the case for class war. It is one of the issues which John Stuart Mill will be forced to confront, and upon which Marx built his theory and makes his observations." (Catlin, A History of the Political Philosophers, Ldn., 1950, p. 374). In opposition to Smith, Ricardo was not interested in the value as the principle for the equal exchange between differentiated individuals, but in it as the means of building up theories of the relation between wages, profits and rents and their distribution to landlords, capitalists and labourers, -thus developing the famous theory of "labour as measure". Against Malthus he opposes the interest of the agriculturalist as against that of the free-trading manufacturer, -one of his distinctive contributions to economics lies in expounding the monopoly theory of rent. "Ricardo was, in a sense, the first "scientific" economist. Lacking Smith's warmth and sympathy for humanity and for the labourer in particular, Ricardo saw the study of economics as a pure science whose abstractions were capable of quasi-mathematical proof. Although his theorems remain hypothetical, his deductive methods have proved a great use in the elementary analysis of economic problems, currency and banking, it has proved a lasting value." (Printing and the Mind of Man 277).The work is groundbreaking in numerous respects, one of them being that Ricardo here also sets out to establish paper-money, -he actualized this as well as the theory that the banks should convert its stock of gold into standardized gold bars, -this is the reason why the very first gold bars, as we know them, were called "Ricardos"; the first was issued in 1820.The work has been immensely influential throughout Europe, and has had a strong effect on Danish liberal thought and politics

      1839. first edition. A Very Beautiful Book""A Genuine Triumph""Worthy of the Highest Possible Praise"BOYS, Thomas Shotter. Picturesque Architecture in Paris, Ghent, Antwerp, Rouen &c. Drawn from Nature and on Stone. London: By Thomas Boys, Printseller to the Royal Family, 1839. First edition. Folio (21 1/8 x 14 1/2 in; 536 x 369 mm). [6, as title, Dedication and Descriptive Notice]. Twenty-six "lithotint" (color-printed lithograph) plates (including title page) printed by G. Hullmandel after drawings by Boys, with tissue guards. Publisher's original half red morocco, inner red moire silk panel enclosed by a continuation of the morocco spine with gilt fillets, and a red morocco label in center of silk panel lettered in gilt with title. Original yellow endpapers. Rear board in half red morocco over cloth. A bit of soiling to silk, as expected. Light rubbing. Withal, an internally clean, gorgeous copy. "A very beautiful book, and one that should take preference over its later and more popular rival, the Original Views of London [by Boys, from] 1842...Apart from the brilliance, sensitivity, and technical mastery of the drawing on stone there is the great, and often under-estimated, technical and artistic achievement of Hullmandel in making possible the transmission of such drawings, and in developing the cool, transparent, graduated tints, subtle in colouring, on which the unique effect of the book depends..." (Abbey)."...A genuine triumph...by Thomas Shotter Boys, a rather neglected artist who merits a far higher place than he was ever awarded in the annals of the English water-colour school...In this book Boys is head and shoulders above them all. His drawing is refined and sensitive, and his colouring cool, simple, and direct" (Hardie)."Our recommendation of it to all who love and can appreciate art cannot be given in terms too strong; it is worthy of the highest possible praise. The Work is of exceeding beauty" (Art Union, 1839)."Apart from the brilliance, sensitivity and technical mastery of the drawing on stone, this volume features Hullmandel's great and often under-estimated technical and artistic achievement in making the transmission of such drawings possible and in devolving the cool, transparent, graduated tints - subtle in colouring - on which the unique effect of the book depends" (Bobins II, 512).Abbey, Travel, 33.

        British Salmonidae. 2 parts.

      (Edinburgh, 1839-41). Elephant-folio. In the two original half-calf-folders with green leather-spines and pattern-stamped cloth boards; gilt title and author to front boards. Remains of the original green cloth-ties. Some wear to spines, especially at capitals. 12 magnificent hand-coloured plates with one leaf of text for each, the first, 8th and 11th text-leaves with an engraved illustration measuring 22x13,5 cm. (depicting "Stake Nets of the Solway Firth", "Poke Nets of the Solway Firth", and "Young States of S. Truttafrom Mr. Shaw's Ponds" - the last beautifully hand-coloured); all leaves laid in loose, as originally published, and all plates with the original tissue-guards. Plates and text-leaves measuring ab. 64,5 x 49 cm. The exceedingly scarce first printing of this monumental work on British salmon, one of the finest books on fishes ever produced. The work is generally considered the Audubon of salmons; the quality of the plates is considered unsurpassed and the scientific research that lies behind it makes it of the utmost importance to the study of salmons."Jardine was a keen sportsman, expert with rod and gun, and followed his hounds. He was not averse to making deer which strayed from his neighbour's estate onto Jerdine Hall land pay for their trespass. He was also an amateur artist, working in watercolours, and exhibited, as an honorary member, at the Scottish Royal Academy, as well as other art exhibitions in Dumfries. When writing his books, he learned to etch, to draw on wood blocks for wood engraving, to lithograph and to use a variant of lithography called papyrography. One of the finest books of fishes ever printed was Jardine's "The British Salmonidae", for which he did the drawings and etchings himself.Jardine was the foremost ichthyologist in Scotland, perhaps even in the United Kingdom, in the nineteenth century. He was a fine fisherman and fished the Annan, which flowed through his grounds in Dumfriesshire, and the best stretches of the Tweed when he lived for three years at St Boswells, Roxburghshire. One of his aims was to establish his life cycles of the salmon and the sea trout, for which he tagged fish in a specially constructed pool at Jardine Hall, and visited the fisheries at Perth where experiments were carried out. His reputation as a fly fisherman was well known, and he enjoyed many days of sport with other eminent naturalists such as P.J. Selby, John Gould, Richard Parnall, as well as friends and neighbours. His interest in fishing and fisheries led to his appointment as one of the royal commissioners to the Salmon Fisheries Survey of England and Wales in 1860." (Jackson and Davis, "Sir William Jardine. A Life in Natural History", p. X). Jardine was also famous for his huge museum collections, among these a very extensive collection of skins. In the late 1820'ies the collections began to encompass vertebrates other than birds, and it is from this time that his scientific interests in fish began to develop. Although Jardine's interest had always extended beyond the British Isles and he also received many specimens of fish from abroad, his main interest remained British fish, and especially those of the salmon family, which greatly fascinated him. "Some of these were little known, and even in the early nineteenth century were considered rare." (Jackson & Davis, p. 57). From around the beginning of the 1830'ies Jardine was on the lookout for more specimens and further advice, and he began corresponding with the famous Cornish naturalist and ichthyologist, Jonathan Couch. He also began corresponding with other respected scientists and correspondents and with much support from all of these, Jardine devoted more and more of his time and effort to investigating fish, especially the salmon family. In 1834 he began a tour of Sutherland that came to have a significant impact on his studies of the salmon family. He brought Selby with him, and due to their many notes, drawings, and observations, Jardine now had the confidence to present a lecture, in which he revised the scientific status of the Salmonidae discovered on their excursion, to the British Association, which he held in Edinburgh during the late summer of 1834. It is this lecture that established his reputation as an ichthyologist, and it is evident from many sources of the period that he was now much admired within this field. "[w]hen he attended the British Association meeting in Newcastle in August 1838, not only did he chair the Botany and Zoology section, but he also gave a lecture on the Salmonidae of Scotland. By this time he was bringing to fruition a much more ambitious project, with the preparation of the plates for the "Illustrations of British Salmonidae, with Descriptions", which was published in two parts in 1839 and 1841." (Jackson & Davis, p. 60).Jardine had originally planned to work on the project with Selby and had already suggested him this in 1834. Selby supported him throughout the project, but eventually Jardine undertook the work alone. The illustrations of the work were to comprise the salmons of both England and Ireland, and in a letter to T.C. Eyton he indicates many of his thoughts concerning the production as well as his continued interest in fishes around the world; he describes his wish to illustrate the specimens life-size, although that would restrict sales, his and Lizar's frustrations of finding a skilled enough colourist, as well as his view on drawing the fish directly at the edge of the water in order to capture the iridescence and colours of the fish straight away, so that they would not have had time to fade, which they do rapidly after death. Among other things he writes "The sale will of course be limited & one to my list is important. If it will clear its way I shall be satisfied so far as the plates are concerned... but Illustrations of the size which I have chosen are always attended with more expense in the publication than those of a less [?] size. All the drawings have been made at the waters edge, and I am sanguine that the work will be creditable to all both artist and engraver... The 1st number will be out in a very short time it is all prepared except the colouring which we have been annoyed about in the north. We have however now selected Mr. Gould' colourer [Gabriel Bayfield] in London, & from what he has put out in these departments we have considerable reliance." (See Jackson & Davis, p. 61).Thus, the plates were etched by Jardine himself and coloured by Bayfield. The first number of plates were sent to Bayfiled for colouring in July 1838, and the first part of "Illustrations" was advertised as published in August 1839, whereas the second was ready in September 1841. "It is not known how many copies were eventually sold, but Jardine (who had exclusive rights to the publication) hinted in 1844 that "There are only 70 copies coloured" - and indication that few coloured copies were to hand after supplying copies to the subscribers. Lizars had been responsible for producing and distributing the books, but when his establishment in Edinburgh closed, Jardine transferred the stock of uncoloured plates to Jardine Hall. Even in the 1860s there was a demand for copies of the Salmonidae, and also for individual plates, and the faithful Bayfield was asked once more to act as colourist for these. Some indication of the price of the complete work is given by Jardine in a letter to John Gould, asking him to deliver a copy to Pickering in Picadilly and asking him "to take payment for £5 16". Initially prices of £2 12s 6d (coloured) and £1 11s 6d (plain) per part had been suggested, which had risen to £3 3s 0d by August 1839. The first estimates also suggested that an initial run of some 50 copies was sensible until the demand could be gauged, and noted that the cost of colouring each impression was 1s 6d." (Jackson & Davis, p. 62).The work is now considered one of the finest books on fish ever produced, both due to its great artistic value and its "meticulous and painstaiking scientific research" (p. 62); besides its scientific value and scientific importance, it is of the greatest scarcity with no more than 70 copies (at the most) produced, and many fewer that have survived.
