        Mitchell's Traveller's Guide Through the United States

      1839. MITCHELL, Samuel Augustus. Mitchell's Traveller's Guide Through the United States, Containing the Principal Cities, Towns, &c. Alphabetically Arranged; Together with the Stage, Steam-Boat, Canal, and Rail-Road Routes. Philadelphia: Thomas, Cowperwait, & Co., 1839. 12mo (3-1/4 by 5-1/2 inches), publisher's red patterned cloth. $1600.Early edition of this guide, with very large hand-colored map at rear of the eastern United States as far west as the Missouri Territory and eastern Texas.Samuel Augustus Mitchell was one of the most prolific publishers and editors of geographical manuals, maps, and textbooks in the United States, employing upwards to 250 artisans and writers. Around 1830 Mitchell settled in Philadelphia, where the best cartographic printing houses could be found, with the intention of improving the aesthetics of geography texts and atlases. His first effort, A New American Atlas, appeared in 1831. ""Mitchell entered the field of cartography at an opportune moment, when national expansion, following the expeditions of Lewis and Clark, Pike, and others, stimulated an interest in the newer parts of the country and created a market for travel maps and guidebooks. He remains an outstanding figure in the development of American geography"" (DAB). ""Mitchell's ability to identify and correlate original sources, as well as material from other map makers, was evidentÂ… His maps were among the most popular and influential in distributing new knowledge about American expansion to a growing, eager audience"" (Martin & Martin, 135). Traveller's guides such as this one were very popular in the 19th century—small volumes that could be slipped into a pocket, filled with detailed information on the distances of each stage of trips by different forms of transportation. With inset maps of Cincinnati, Albany, New Orleans, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and Charleston. Issued under various titles; the map alone was first issued in 1832, and the accompanying text was first issued in 1834. See Howes M690. Small early bookplate, contemporary owner signature and marginalia to front endpapers.Map with expert paper repairs to folds, with just the slightest bit of loss to a few of them, not affecting readability. Binding with restoration to spin ends. An extremely good copy.

        Washinga Sahba's Grave

      1839. BODMER, Karl. Washinga SahbaÂ’s Grave on BlackbirdÂ’s Hills. London: Ackermann (Bougeard), 1839. Single sheet, plate impression measures 12-1/2 by 9-1/2 inches; window matted, entire piece measures 23 by 20 inches. $1500.Original hand-colored aquatint Plate XII, third state, one of the 33 “vignettes” from Karl BodmerÂ’s magnificent picture-atlas, produced for Maximilian Wied-NeuwiedÂ’s Travels in the Interior of North America (1839-1843).MaximilianÂ’s monumental work was originally published in German (1839-41); a French translation followed in 1840-43 and an English translation in 1843. A picture-atlas of eighty-one aquatint plates (48 folios and 33 “vignettes”) after paintings by Karl Bodmer was issued in Paris, and accompanied all three of these editions. The picture volume is now regarded as one of the most comprehensive and memorable visual surveys of North America ever produced. The images provide an authentic glimpse into 19th-century America by one of the most eminent European artists. Unlike some other painters, Bodmer tried not to romanticize his subjects, but show them as they really were. Perhaps the most important leg of MaximilianÂ’s travels started from St. Louis and proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River. “On 7 May 1833 Maximilian reported that the Yellow Stone was passing by ‘the foothills that are called BlackbirdÂ’s Hills because here the famous Omaha chief Wha-schingÂ’gha-sa-ba [Blackbird] is buriedÂ… [He] asked to be buried upright, astride his favorite mule” (Marsha V. Gallagher). The print is vignette number XII, with the three requisite imprint statements and captions in German, French and English. Third state, with the date in the imprint statement and engraved by Lucas Weber. Ruud, 269. See Howes M443a. Wagner-Camp 76. Streeter III:1809. Hand coloring very vivid, only light foxing to margins (not affecting image). A lovely print.

        Rotterdam plattegrond - Temminck.

      "Platte grond der stad Rotterdam, vervaardigd volgens kadastrale plans, opgedragen aan Edel Achtbare Heeren Burgemeester en Wethouders dezer stad."Uitgegeven in 1839 door L.F. Temminck, in koper gegraveerd door D. Veelwaard en Zonen, gedrukt op vier bladen door Wed. Koning & Brugman. Deels later, deels in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 75 x 123 cm.Steeds weer bestond bij Rotterdamse stadsbestuurders behoefte aan een grootschalige betrouwbare kaart waarop ook alle percelen zijn aangeduid. In 1827 wordt door de fabrieksmeesters, die de directie voeren over de Fabricage, de technische dienst van de stad, bij Burgemeesters en Wethouders aangedrongen op het laten vervaardigen van een plattegrond van de gemeente. Pas twaalf jaar later wordt deze wens vervuld door Leonardus Temminck, controleur en bewaarder van het kadaster van Rotterdam. Aan het stadsbestuur worden vijf gekleurde en vijf ongekleurde exemplaren geleverd.Sinds de verschijning van de vorige kaart (in 1800) is het gebied van de gemeente behoorlijk uitgebreid. De gemeente Cool is ingelijfd, West-Blommersdijk en Oost-Blommerswijk en Rubroek staan nu voor het eerst op een plattegrond.Door de zeer dichte bebouwing van de binnenstad is het Temminck, door het ontbreken van gegeven daarover, niet overal mogelijk geweest de onbebouwde gedeeltes van de percelen weer te geven, maar slechts de kadastrale perceelgrenzen. Het grondgebruik buiten de singels is op de kaart wel mooi aangeduid. Met name van de tuinaanleg wordt een prachtig beeld gegeven. Een groot aantal straten, stegen en wateren, openbare gebouwen, bedrijven en buitenplaatsen zijn aangeduid. Dit en de zeer precieze kartering, maken deze kaart tot een uiterst belangrijke bron van kennis van Rotterdam aan de vooravond van de ingrijpende veranderingen, die de stad in de negentiende eeuw zou ondergaan.Prijs: ?5.950,- (incl. lijst).

The other four plate volumes were published over a period of six years and are often found separately. With 91 pages of descriptive text. Early ownership inscription of J.M.E. Roche of the Royal College of Surgeons in London on front free endpaper, neat ownership ink stamp of the Bibliothèque du Docteur J.

        REPORT, ON THE AFFAIRS OF BRITISH NORTH AMERICA, From the Earl of Durham, Her Majesty's High Commissioner &c. &c. &c.

      Robert Stanton, Toronto 1839 - 8vo, pp. 142, iv. This document, commonly known as the "Durham report", is one of the essential documents in the history of Quebec, Ontario, Canada, and the British Empire. Lambton (1792-1840), first Earl of Durham, assisted in the preparation of the first Reform Bill, and was, at various times, ambassador to Russia, Germany, and Austria. In 1838, he was appointed both high commissioner for the adjustment of important questions concerning what was then called Upper and Lower Canada, and Governor-General of the said provinces. Quoting from the first page of the subsequent report, he observes: "While the present state of things is allowed to last, the actual inhabitants of these Provinces have no security for person or property - no enjoyment of what they possess - no stimulus to industry." His report contained the famous assessment that Lower Canada (i.e., Quebec) consisted of "two nations warring within the bosom of a single state". (Not much has changed since). His report was first published as a parliamentary paper, and re-published in Toronto the same year in a format more condusive to general reading. Such is our offering. There is an early signature and date (Toronto 20th Dec 1839) to the front free endpaper, an early inscription to the title page, with signature below. The text shows occasional foxing. The recent re-binding is quite luxurious, and in excellent condition, with "Lord Durham's Report - 1839" stamped on the spine in gilt. The marbled endpapers have small tears but the binding is holding nicely. Handsomely re-bound in recent "pebbled" red leather [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby

      1839. DICKENS, Charles. The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. London: Chapman and Hall, 1839. Thick octavo, contemporary century three-quarter red morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine, raised bands, black morocco spine label, marbled boards and endpapers, all edges gilt. $2600.First edition, bound from early parts, of one of DickensÂ’ third novel and one of his most popular, illustrated with 39 etchings by Hablot Knight Browne (“Phiz”) and extra-illustrated with 55 engraved plates, handsomely bound.Published in 20 monthly parts between March 1838 and September 1839, Dickens' third novel ""most closely follows,"" of them all, ""the 'life and adventures' pattern of Fielding, Smollett and other 18th-century novelists whose works he had loved from childhood?Nickleby attracted more notice than Dickens had received previously"" (Schlike, 415-16). Its plot, characters and dialogue possess ""the feel of theatre; it is as if Dickens saw human life conducted among lights of the stage, making it somehow larger and brighter than the reality"" (Ackroyd, 283). Indeed, the public reading version of the text Dickens prepared ""became one of his standard repertoire pieces. 'I think Nickleby tops all the readings,' Dickens reported"" (Schlike, 417). This copy bound from a mix of early and later parts, displaying most first issue points, but with ""visiter"" corrected to ""sister"" on page 123 (a later state) and ""latter"" on page 160 (an earlier state). The first two plates are first state with the publisher's imprint. Plate 16 (facing page 248) printed from the third steel. Plate 23 (facing page 356) printed from the fourth steel. Plate 29 (facing page 457) printed from second steel, no priority. Without engraved frontispiece portrait of Dickens from Maclise's painting; a different portrait precedes the title page. Without half title, as often. Eckel, 64-66. Smith I:5. Gimbel A41. Scattered light to mild foxing, as often, mostly to plates. Binding with reinforcement to joints, mild wear to edges of board.

      Hamburg, Friedrich Perthes, 1836-1839. - Sehr seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe von 'De L'éducation progressive ou Etude du cours de la vie'. "One of the sanest works on education ever written" (Th. Davidson, A History of Education, NY 1971, S. 243). Band 3 mit dem 2. Titel: 'Die Erziehung des weiblichen Geschlechts', übersetzt von Eduard Adolph Jacobi. Von der Academie Française gekrönte Preisschrift und auch in Deutschland viel gelesen. Darstellung der Erziehung von der Geburt bis zum Alter. Bände 1 und 2 jeweils mit einem Anhang: 'Ueber Gefühl und Gefühlvermögen und deren Bedeutung im Organismus der Seele' von Wangenheim und 'Die moralische Weltordnung' von Eschenmayer. Albertine Adrienne Necker de Saussure fordert u. a. die gleiche Bildung für Jungen und Mädchen. Hier legt die 62jährige dar, dass die bisherige Mädchenerziehung nur die Fähigkeiten zur Hausfrau und Mutter fördert. Dies entsprach dem Bildungskonzept Jean-Jacques Rousseaus, das dieser in seinem pädagogischen Roman 'Emile' dargelegt hatte. Necker de Saussure fordert, dass Frauen nicht von Männern abhängig sein sollen; sie brauchten keine Anhängsel zu sein, wenn all ihre Fähigkeiten gefördert werden würden. Mädchen, so ihre Erkenntnis, haben die gleichen Anlagen wie Jungen. Neckers Werk war quasi ein Gegen-Emile. Mme. Necker de Saussure war die Tochter des prominenten Schweizer Naturwissenschaftler Horace-Bénédict de Saussure und Gattin des Botanikers Jacques Necker (Neffe des gleichnamigen Finanzministers Ludwigs XVI.). Bände 1 und 2 kaum fleckig, Band 3 unterschiedlich gebräunt bzw. fleckig. Gutes Exemplar. Kein Exemplar dieser deutschen Ausgabe im JAP seit 1950. – Fromm 19036. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Fourier et son systéme [Fourier und sein System]. Union Ouvriere [Arbeiterunion]. [Edition Populaire].

      Deuxiéme Edition (2. Aufl.) v. Fourier et son systéme. Zwei seltene Werke der beiden frühen Feministinnen, in fachlich versierter Ausführung zusammen gebunden. Isabelle Laure Gatti de Gamond (1839-1905) italienisch-belgischer Abstammung, war eine bildungspolitisch engagierte Sozialistin besonders im Bereich der schulischen Ausbildung für Mädchen, die zudem als erste Freimaurerin Belgiens bekannt wurde. Flora Tristan (1803-1844) war eine französische Schriftstellerin, Sozialistin und Frauenrechtlerin. In ihrem Hauptwerk ?Union Ouvrière? reflektiert sie ihre Erfahrungen in London und anderen Industriestädten, wo sie Fabriken, Ghettos, Gefängnisse und auch Bordelle untersucht hatte. Sie rief alle Arbeiterinnen und Arbeiter dazu auf, sich zusammenzuschließen und gemeinsam für ihre Rechte zu kämpfen. Besonderes Augenmerk legte sie dabei auf das Recht auf Ausbildung - auch und ganz besonders jenes der Frauen. - Innenteil etwas stockfleckig. Sonst guter Zustand.
