        Cruchley's New Plan of London. Shewing all the new and intended improvements to the present time.A New Edition Improved to 1st. Jany. 1839.

      London: Cruchley 1839 - Overall dimensions 41 x 58cm, map 34 x 53cm. Original hand-coloured engraved map, folding between green silk ribbon-tied blind-stamped grey cloth boards (15 x 9.5cm). Map showing the extent from Pentonville in the N to Kennington in the S and Bethnal Green in the E to Kensington Gardens in the W. Including a table of reference to upwards of 500 streets, public buildings etc. Manuscript annotations to rear of map. Some damp stains to covers most noticeably to publisher's label. Despite not being laid down on linen as these maps usually are still in very good condition. CF. Howgego, 307, (10a) which he describes as being issued in Cruchleys "Picture of London" 1839 but in this instance this is a separately issued map, dated bottom right corner (only). George Frederick Cruchley (1796-1880) was a publisher of "some of the clearest and most attractive London maps" (Howgego). He began his cartographic career in the publishing firm of Aaron Arrowsmith. In 1823, he set up on his own at 38 Ludgate Street until 1834, when he moved to 81 Fleet Street. It would appear that he had some help from his former employer, as much of his early output bears in the imprint "From Arrowsmith's". He would later acquire a great deal of Arrowsmith's stock. In 1844, he took over the stock of George and John Cary, which he republished until 1876. In 1877 his entire stock was sold at auction with many of the plates being brought by Gall and Inglis. Cruchley himself passed away in Brighton in 1880. Howgego, 307, (10a) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Map of the United States Territory of Oregon West of the Rocky Mountains.

      U.S. Government. Washington, D.C. 1839. - Black and white engraved map, 17 3/8 x 20 1/2 inches (44 x 52 cm) on sheet 18 3/4 x 22 7/8 inches, folded into complete (disbound) GOVERNMENT REPORT Rep. No. 101 (25th Congress, 3d Session with Supplemental Report). Map: tear just entering neat line at upper left, scattered light foxing, particularly on left and upper right folds. Report has library stamp in left margin. A significant map in the history of the Pacific Northwest and the United States, which first appeared with the report of Senator Linn on a Bill to authorise the President to occupy the Oregon Territory, and was subsequently published in several other government reports. This map is bound into the Report No. 101 of the 25th Congress, 3d Session, House of Representatives: Territory of Oregon, January 4, 1899, with the Supplemental Report of February 16, 1839. The first report, after considering the various claims by different countries to the Northwest coast culminates in "A Bill to provide for the protection of the citizens of the United States residing in the Oregon Territory, or trading on the Columbia river or its tributaries." The supplementary report appends various documents "which have been communicated to them, in evidence of the necessity there is to provide, by law, for the protection of citizens of the United States, who have already established themselves in Oregon, or contemplate proceeding thither for the purpose of colonization and settlement." The title on the map continues: "Exhibiting the various Trading Depots or Forts occupied by the British Hudson Bay Company connected with the Western and northwestern Fur Trade." The map itself, intended to "awaken public interest in an American occupation of the vast area then known as Oregon Territory" (Wheat: Mapping the Trans-Mississippi West #434), was based on the Arrowsmith landmark 1834 map of "British North America". Washington Hood was a Captain in the U.S Corps of Topographical Engineers, working under the direction of Colonel J.J. Abert. A most handsome map, of particular interest given its use in association with the promulgation of the doctrine of "Manifest Destiny," a phrase which first made print in 1845.

        The jotting book; a political and literary experiment

      London, John Murray 1839 - Bound in original 1/4 cloth over brown boards. 1st ed. Scarce title. Scattered foxing. Subtitle: I. Progressive Thoughts on the Practical Working of the House of Commons before and since the Reform Bill; intended as an argument for the genuine finality of that meassure; being extracts from the diary of a resolute optimist in all that regards the Constitution of England. Hall dedicates this book to Sir Robert Peel, Lord Stanley and Sir Francis Burdett. Hall's Jottings contain his dated thoughts on the progress of the Reform Bill of 1832. The Great Reform Act was a significant victory for democracy in the United Kingdom that attempted to attack the problem of the rotten borough system. It greatly increased the franchise among adult males. It is a reasonable supposition that without this Reform Bill the United Kingdom would have faced widespread bloody revolution and labor strife seen in other parts of Europe during the 19th century.

        De praecipua inter hodiernam Arabum linguam et antiquam differentia dissertatio. Helsingfors (Helsinki), Frenckell, 1839.

      1839. 8vo. (2), 47, (1) pp. Marbled boards. Only edition of Wallin's dissertation, a study of the differences between classical and modern Arabic. Like his more famous contemporary J. L. Burckhardt, the Finnish orientalist Wallin was not only fluent in Arabic, but also capable of passing for a scholarly sheikh. Indeed, the two explorers are often compared: "I see many points of resemblance between them, the same iron constitution, the same versatility, the same indomitable energy, the same imperturbable temper" (H. C. Rawlinson, quoted in Henze). Financially backed by his alma mater, the University of Helsinki, Wallin departed for the Middle East in 1843 and set out on his expeditions from Cairo under the name of Abd al-Wali. "In 1845, proceeding southeast across the wastelands of the Nafud Desert, he reached Ha'il then continued by force of circumstances southward to Medina and Mecca. From there he returned to Egypt" (Howgego). After his return to Europe in 1850, Wallin was made Professor of oriental languages at Helsingfors. His notes provide a detailed overview of the political and religious movements and the role of the different tribes in Palestine and especially in Saudi Arabia. - Browned as common. An untrimmed, uncut copy as issued. - Of the utmost rarity. K.-E. Henriksson (A Wallin Bibliography), in: Studia orientalia 17 (1952), p. 13-16, at p. 13. Henriksson/Puupponen 167. Marklin 76.

When hostilities began between the British and the ruling Chinese Qing Dynasty in late 1839, Thom, along with other Chinese translators including John Robert Morrison and Karl Gützlaff provided the necessary language interface between the warring factions. This translation is a story from the Ming anthology Chin-ku ch'i-kuan which contained 40 stories and was published during the Ming Dynasty sometime between 1633 and 1644.

        The Birds of America,

      New York & Philadelphia: J. J. Audubon and [vols. I-V] J. B. Chevalier,, [1839-]1840?1844. . from Drawings Made in the United States and Their Territories. 7 volumes, octavo. (250 × 147 mm). Recently rebound to style in black half morocco, gilt panelled spines with owl and eagle motifs, contemporary marbled sides, speckled edges, endleaves renewed. 500 hand-coloured lithographic plates after Audubon by W. E. Hitchcock, R. Trembley and others, printed by J. T. Bowen of Philadelphia (plates 1-135, 151-500) or George Endicott of New York (plates 136-150), numerous wood-engraved anatomical figures in text. A few plates trimmed by the binder with concomitant shaving of a few captions (encroaching on the plate itself in only one instance). An excellent set. First octavo edition of Audubon's "Great National Work", the first complete edition and the first American edition, the original double-elephant folio was published in Edinburgh and London between 1827 and 1838. A very handsome set, the plates clean and fresh, of the "most beautiful, popular, and important natural history books published in America in the nineteenth century... representing the best of pre-Civil War American lithography and giving Audubon the opportunity finally to display his scholarship and genius to a large American audience for the first time" (Ron Tyler). The plates, here accompanied by the text for the first time, were reduced and variously modified from the Havell engravings in the double-elephant folio. Seven new species are figured and seventeen others, previously described in the Ornithological Biography but not illustrated, are pictured for the first time. Audubon may have been prompted to publish the reduced version of his double-elephant folio by the appearance in 1839 of John Kirk Townsend's rival Ornithology of the United States, or, as he writes in the introduction to the present work, he may have succumbed to public demand and his wish that a work similar to his large work should be published but "at such a price, as would enable every student or lover of nature to place it in his Library". The first edition of the octavo work now represents the only realistic opportunity that exists for collectors to own an entire collection of Audubon images in a form that was overseen and approved by the great artist himself.

        "The Assabet". Autograph manuscript. N. p., 18. VII. 1839.

      1839. 4to. 2½ pp. on 2 ff. All 12 stanzas of his poem "The Assabet", which he also entered in his "Journal" (and dated 18 July 1839). Composed two days before Ellen Sewall's arrival, "The Assabet" was probably written with Ellen's brother Edmund in mind, though it seems to be entirely appropriate for Thoreau's time with Ellen during her visit, with its images of a boat trip. (The images are also an early treatment of Thoreau's Concord-Merrimack boat trip undertaken in August and September 1839 with his brother John, which he described in "A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers".) This is the actual poem Thoreau sent to Ellen Sewall in Scituate in the late summer of 1839. Interestingly, the present poem constitutes the first poem Henry David Thoreau gave to Ellen Sewall. In 1840, Thoreau proposed to Ellen. Her father, a Unitarian minister, found Thoreau to be a rabble-rouser with his antislavery and freethinking ideas. He instructed his daughter to reject the offer. Thoreau never married. - "Up this pleasant stream let's row | For the livelong summer's day, | Sprinkling foam where'er we go, | In weather as white as driven snow; | Ply the oars, away! away! || Now we glide along the shore, | Plucking lillies as we go, | While the yellow sanded floor | Doggedly resists the oar, | Like some turtle, dull and slow. || Now we stem the middle tide, | Ploughing through the deepest soil, | Ridges pile on either side, | While we through the furrow glide, | Reaping bubbles for our toil. || Dew before and drought behind, | Onward all doth seem to fly, | Naught contents the eager mind, | Only rapids now are kind, | Forward are the earth and sky. || Sudden music strikes the ear | Leaking out from yonder bank | Fit such voyageurs to cheer - | Sure there must be fairies [naiads] here, | Who have kindly played this prank [...]". - Marginal waterstaining and fraying repaired; full transcription available on request.

Lloyd, inner dentelles, gilt edges, marbled endpapers, plates slightly spotted, a fine copy. Rare privately printed journal of Davidson's attempt to cross the Western Sahara from Tangier to Timbuktoo which ended with his murder in November 1836. 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. The fine plates depict two views of Wadnoon and one of the river Draha. Howgego D4; Playfair & Brown, 609. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Autograph letter signed. Leipzig, 18. III. 1839.

      1839. 4to. 4 pp. on double leaf. To the Committee for this year's Lower Rhenish Music Festival in Dusseldorf. Mendelssohn, the 1839 Director of the Lower Rhenish Music Festival, writes to the festival's committee recommending the works to be included. "I hasten to answer, as the time is indeed approaching and is beginning to press. Against the march and chorus from the Ruins of Athens, which you are adding to the second day, it is only natural that I have nothing to object; I would suggest putting the piece right after the Eroica Symphony, where it would certainly have a good effect. But I wouldn't know what cantata by Bach to suggest for the second day as now programmed; I don't know any which would fit in as regards the time it needs and even more as regards style; if another piece needs to be selected, I would perhaps suggest the chorus by Haydn 'Des Staubes eitle Sorgen' but it seems enough to me, anyway. In 1833 with you and 1834 in Aachen, the program of the 2nd day was shorter than this; last year in Cologne it was at least no longer, and so I think: 1) Eroica Symph[ony], march and chorus by Beeth[oven], new hymn by Spohr. 2) Overture and Psalm -would be quite a sufficient program. To be sure, if Herr Rietz doesn't keep his promise, quite a substantial overture would have to be selected, to make the second part as interesting as possible. But this time the main thing for me would be if you could manage to have Alceste performed in the theater. You write of the difficulties with the chorus; they are indeed the biggest ones that can place themselves in its way, to my knowledge, but even if they couldn't be removed, I would prefer seeing Alceste performed with a very bad chorus a hundred times more than giving up the idea completely. First, in Alceste the main thing is Alceste herself, then Admet, then Hercules, and then only the chorus, and with a performance to be expected from Frl. von Fassmann and Tichatschek or Eichberger or some other outstanding Admet, the chorus recedes in any case into the background. Then there is the second question if it is impossible to improve the chorus? Couldn't 12-20 of the best chorus singers be brought in from Cologne and Aachen? I would with pleasure come a week earlier myself for this and hold separate rehearsals for the chorus every day to make this performance possible. Finally, several passages could and in such a case would have to be deleted, such as the ball in the second act and similar passages in which the chorus plays too much of a main part, and as I said, that would be that much more feasible as Alceste herself and her and Admet's suffering are definitely the main thing in the opera. As several of your members know, I already felt the urgent wish for something new in the course and sequence of the music festival last year, and I said so. My suggestions on this were perhaps not practical, but now, through this coincidence, the opportunity arises this time in Dusseldorf, at least, of giving the festival a new attraction of the kind I had in mind. If this music festival performs the Messiah on the first day, then the Beethoven symphony with a miscellaneous program, and finally a Gluck opera (and even if it is most inferior in execution and even if it has the worst chorus, but beautifully sung in the main roles and beautifully played by the orchestra), this would indeed be something new, as I wished, and because of that this music festival would be outstanding as compared to all the earlier ones. I would therefore very much wish that this plan, even if it be only the hope of it, be mentioned already in your first tentative announcements - how differently would the music festival appear because of it! In the interest of the public, too; in regard to the box office it would also make a palpable difference. Of course I assume that the performance would have to be considered in conjunction with both the others, and only those would receive tickets to the opera who had attended the music festival on the preceding days or had been participants in it. And even if the prices were not raised, the proceeds would be significant. Not to mention the enjoyment all friends of music would derive from it. I ask you to let me know your answer as soon as possible, as I would, as I said, to this end make my departure earlier, if necessary. In any case your speedy answer is now very much desired, as the time is now fast approaching [...]" (transl.). - In a postscript, Mendelssohn has written: "The fine tenor here, Schmidt, just came to ask if he couldn't take part in the music festival; he would try to arrange things so that he could come there at that time and take a solo pan. I told him you had written Tichatschek, but he claims that he is giving guest performances in Berlin at Pentecost and would thus not be able to come to the Rhine. Also, the things that Schmoetzer and Eichberger, whom I mentioned to him, are also detained. So I don't hesitate to let you know about his wish. In a second postscript written in the left margin of the first page Mendelssohn has added; Please have the kindness to hand the enclosed letter over to Director Schadow" (transl.). - The Lower Rhenish Music Festival (Das Niederrheinische Musikfest) was one of the most important festivals of classical music, which happened every year with few exceptions between 1818 and 1958 at Pentecost for 112 times. The Festival was held in various German cities over time and the directors included Robert Schuman, Richard Strauss, Franz Liszt, Otto Goldschmidt, Anton Rubinstein, Hans Richter & Richard Strauss. - Light browning; small clipped section on f. 2.

      1839. 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). Mit 3 eh. Zeilen und U. von Bruder Georg Franz Ferdinand (1808-1855). Schöner Brief an H. W. Veit in Prag mit einem Bericht über ein Vorspielen: "Unsere Abrede lautet auf einige Werke, diese erfolgen also pflichtgemäß. Nachdem wir Sonntag halb 10 Uhr Morgens mit der Eisenbahn hier eingetroffen, bewegte ich mich mit Theodor sofort zu Breitkopf und Härtel, der am andern Morgen zu uns kam, um das Quartett zu hören, wir stellten es ihm frei, seinen Verwandten den Dr Fink mitzubringen; wovon er auch Gebrauch machte, außer den Genannten waren Kistner und der Tenorist Schmidt zufällig bei uns als die Production losging. - Wir spielten es recht con amore und ich glaube besser als jemals. Alle Anwesende, den Dr. Fink mit inbegriffen waren enthusiasmirt [...]". - G. H. T. Müller war Bratschist des berühmten (ersten) Müller-Quartetts. Der Brief ist mit Gebr. Müller unterzeichnet und trägt den Zusatz "Secretair in d. A / Gustav Müller", was - wenn "A" für "Ausführung" steht - darauf schließen läßt, daß er der Verfasser ist. Der dreizeilige eh. Nachsatz von Georg Müller ist unzweideutig mit dessen U. versehen. - Etwa angestaubt und fleckig und mit kleinen Randläsuren.

        Autograph letter signed ("R. Schumann"). Leipzig, 10. V. 1839.

      1839. 8vo. 1¾ pp. on double leaf. To the (unnamed) German composer Carl Ferdinand Becker: "Since you mention Sch[illing] in St[uttgart], it occurs to me that we really ought to mention his [Logiken] in the journal as, in effect, the most important recent literary undertaking (at least in quantity). Would you like to write such an article? There must be a superfluity of material for such remarks. Otherwise, as you say, Sch. is a most miserable man, to whom we should really pay no attention, but he knows how to look the public directly in the eye, and that really has to be said, briefly and clearly. Think about it. Another thing: I have asked some supporters of our journal to fetch Herr Erich for a weekly walk, on Sundays (at 11 a.m.), to have a mutual discussion about the journal, its weal and woe, to suggest and adopt alterations, where desirable, etc. etc. Would you like to take part in the walk? Please let me know soon. In a postscript, Schumann has added; I have already asked you for an essay on Marx's doctrine; do you remembering that? [Merz] wrote to me some time ago and asked for you" (transl.). - Published (in parts) in: Friedrich Gustav Jansen (ed.): Robert Schumann's Briefe. Neue Folge.

        Panorama di Roma veduta dalla Torre del Campidoglio

      1839. Litografia, 1839, firmata e datata in basso a destra e sinistra. Bellissima prova, impressa su quattro fogli di carta coeva uniti, leggere ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa panorama è idealmente preso dalla torre del Campidoglio ruotando da sinistra verso destra di 360 gradi, con una raffigurazione che inizia dal Pincio e si chiude a Piazza del Popolo. L'opera è stampata dalla litografia Kier di Venezia e nel margine inferiore reca una leggenda di 69 numeri. L'impianto della veduta è ancora quello di un pittore di tradizione settecentesca, in sintonia con la definizione che lo stesso Caffi, allora trentenne, dava di se stesso: "pittore prospettico". Emilio Re nella biografia sull'artista della mostra romana del 1959 definisce, già allora, "rara" la veduta. Bibliografia: Vedute Romane, pp. 13, 50, n. 74; Roma Veduta, p. 221, 67; Le piante di Roma nelle collezioni private, p. 344, 276. Dimensioni 1450x145. Lithograph, 1839, signed and dated on lower right and left. Beautiful work, printed on four sheets of contemporary laid paper then joined together, light oxidations otherwise in excellent condition. This panorama is ideally seen from the tower of the Campidoglio, rotating towards the right side of 360 degrees, starting from the Pincio and ending in Piazza del Popolo. The work has been printed by the Kier lithography in Venice; on lower margin it bears 69 numbers. The setting of the view recalls that of an XVIII century painter, according to the definition that Caffi himself, at the age of thirty, gave of his art: "perspective painter". In his biography of the artist, written on the occasion of the 1959 exhibition, Emilio Re defined this subject "rare".

Gori Sassoli (a cura di), "Roma Veduta", p. 221, s. 67; C. Marigliani, "Le Piante di Roma delle collezioni private", tav. 276. 1450 145
