        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.

A French translation followed in 1840-43 and an English translation in 1843. The Atlas included 33 vignettes in addition to the 48 beautiful folio plates. ""Bodmer's watercolors are perhaps the most accurate works of art ever made of American Indians during the nineteenth century. His attention in detail to beadwork, personal symbols, clothing, accoutrements, and facial expression make these portraits precious documents of a lost world"" (Robert Moore). ""With the name of the artist—""C. Bodmer Direct""— stamped in blind on each of the forty-eight large plates, this work is the most beautiful, faithful and vivid ever produced depicting western plains and Indians"" (Howes M443a). This superb hand-colored scene of a Sioux funeral platform is folio number 11 (with the requisite three separate imprint statements, captions in German, French, and English, and the embossed stamp).

        Traité pratique du pied-bot.

      J.-B. Baillière 1839 - FIRST EDITION, with 9 wood-engraved and 1 lithographed plates, woodcut illustrations in the text, a few leaves browned, pp. xiv, 336, 8vo, contemporary dark green roan backed boards, spine gilt, a trifle rubbed, very good. This scarce work is the first of Duval's on orthopaedics, and is an important contribution to the literature on club foot. WorldCat records only 4 copies in America, and not many elsewhere - not in Wellcome. Quite apart from its importance in the history of medicine, the work has a significant niche in literary history. It was the text Flaubert studied (a copy in his father's library) for the crucial Chapter XI in Madame Bovary, in which Charles Bovary orders a copy of the book from Rouen. The novel contains this memorable passage: 'Ni Ambroise Paré, appliquant pour la première fois depuis Celse, après quinze siècles d'intervalle, la ligature immédiate d'une artère; ni Dupuytren allant ouvrir un abcès à travers une couche épaisse d'encéphale; ni Gensoul, quand il fit la première ablation de maxillaire supérieur, n'avaient certes le cœur si palpitant, la main si frémissante, l'intellect aussi tendu que M. Bovary quand il approcha Hippolyte, son ténotome entre les doigts.' (Heirs of Hippocrates 1560)

        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]

      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.

Elephant folio (15 by 21 inches), original half black morocco. $4500.First edition, with tinted lithograph title page and 24 lovely large tinted lithographs of views, street scenes and antiquities of Scotland, mostly in Edinburgh and the lowlands, after sketches made by Swarbreck during his 1837 tour.Printer and lithographer Charles Joseph Hullmandel pioneered the use of the then-new process of lithography in England. ""Among the many artists who availed themselves of his processes for the reproduction of their drawings were Stanfield, David Roberts, Haghe, Nash, and Cattermole"" (DNB). The lithographs he made from Swarbreck's sketches show his masterly use of gradations of tones and highlights that give the appearance of soft watercolor washes so suited to landscape painting.

      London: Taylor / Taylor & Francis, 1839. First edition, 8vo, 3 volumes, 17 engraved plates, a number folding; bookseller's ticket of Charles Haselden in volume I, bookplates of James S. Drury, M.B. in volumes I and II; rear hinge cracked on volume II, rear hinge cracked and rep[aired in volume III; binding of volume I slightly dull, else a very good set in original blindstamped green cloth and scarce thus. Each volume contained in a separate quarter black morocco clamshell box. Laid in is a 1933 invoice for the set from Henry Sotheran (for £5.79). The first publication of all of Faraday's important research in book form, work available earlier only in short papers and articles in the scientific periodicals of the day. Present here are epochal papers on electric induction ("Faradic current"), the principles of the dynamo, electronic state of matter, equivalents of electro-chemical decomposition, and magnetism. In addition there are prescient papers dealing with experiments on the actions of a magnetic field on polarized light and the general field studies that laid the basis for Maxwell's research later in the century. This is a difficult book to come by in first edition form, given its appearance over a 15-year period. A worthy copy of one of the great scientific books of all time.
