SHIPPING TO UK AND OTHER EU COUNTRIES ONLY Murchison became fascinated by the young science of geology and joined the Geological Society of London, soon becoming one of its most active members. His colleagues there included Adam Sedgwick, William Conybeare, William Buckland, William Fitton, Charles Lyell and Charles Darwin. Exploring with his wife, Murchison studied the geology of the south of England, devoting special attention to the rocks of the north-west of Sussex and the adjoining parts of Hampshire and Surrey, on which, aided by Fitton, he wrote his first scientific paper, read to the Geological Society of London in 1825. In 1831 he went to the border of England and Wales, to attempt to discover whether the greywacke rocks underlying the Old Red Sandstone could be grouped into a definite order of succession. The result was the establishment of the Silurian system under which were grouped for the first time a remarkable series of formations, each replete with distinctive organic remains other than and very different from th … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

Meyer, Johann Georg - genannt „Meyer von Bremen" (1813 Bremen - Berlin 1886)
1839. Bleistift, auf gelblichem sehr dünnem Pergamin, auf Papier aufgezogen und mit Gummi arabicum lasiert, rechts entlang des Randes datiert und signiert „1839. Meyer v. Br." sowie mit Farbangaben. 12,9:10,7 cm. Provenienz: Aus dem Künstlernachlaß. Vermutlich Entwurf für ein kleines Ölgemälde. Georg Meyer von Bremen ging 1833 im Alter von 20 Jahren nach Düsseldorf, um an einer der geachtesten Kunstakademien des Landes zu studieren. Er wurde hier erst Schüler des Nazareners J. Wintergerst (1783-1867) und des Historienmalers K.F. Sohn (1805-1867), dann besuchte er die Meisterklasse wohl unter der Leitung des Akademiedirektors W. von Schadow (1788-1862). Seit 1841 war er in Düsseldorf als freischaffender Maler tätig. 1848 war er Gründungsmitglied des „Künstler-Verein Malkasten". Studienreisen durch Deutschland (Hessen und Bayern), nach Berchtesgaden, in das Salzkammergut und der Schweiz brachten die Hinwendung zu volkstümlichen Genrebildern, vor allem gemütvolle Familiendarstellungen und Szenen aus dem Kinderleben. Weitere Reisen führten ihn nach Brüssel und Antwerpen. 1850 erhielt er die Kleine Goldene Medaille. 1852 siedelte er nach Berlin über, wo er es nach wenigen Jahren zu großem, auch internationalem Erfolg brachte, vor allem bei den in die USA emigrierenden deutschen Auswanderern; zu seinen prominentesten Kunden zählten das russische Kaiserhaus und die preußische Königsfamilie. Zwei Jahre nach dem Umzug wurde er zum Professor an die Berliner Akademie berufen. 1855 wurde ihm der belgische Leopoldsorden überreicht, 1857 wurde er Mitglied der Académie des Arts in Amsterd … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

Cincinnati: Printed by J.B. & R.P. Donogh, 1839. Good.. 520pp. plus 10 plates. Lacks pp.25-26. Modern quarter morocco and marbled boards. Scattered foxing and soiling to text, outer leaves with some chipping and wear. Top half of pp.43-46 cut away (ads), likewise bottom half of pp.55-56 (also ads). A solid copy. Scarce early directory for Cincinnati, with additional coverage of the small towns of Covington and Newport located directly across the river in Kentucky. The first eighty pages contain advertisements for local businesses, printed in blue, brown, red, or green ink, and often illustrated. (It is assumed that the leave which have been cut away contained interesting woodcut advertisements, resulting in their removal from the volume.) The ten plates interspersed throughout the text are engraved advertisements for businesses in the area. There follows an alphabetical listing for each town, with Cincinnati comprising the bulk of the text, and the three little towns occupying the last eighty or so pages. Each individual is listed with name, address, and state or country of origin, providing a fascinating study in the ethnic makeup of the region at this time. Interestingly, there is a segregated section at the end labeled "Colored," listing approximately three hundred African-American residents in Cincinnati with their addresses and state of origin.We locate a handful of institutional copies, half of which are in Ohio institutions. The last copy to appear at auction came up at Swann in 1991. A good solid copy of this scarce directory. Checklist of American Imprin … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

SHELLEY, Percy Bysshe; edited by SHELLEY, Mary
London: Edward Moxon, 1839. First collected edition edited by Mary Shelley in a beautiful Morrell binding. Full dark green morocco with titles in gilt to spine. Five raised bands with compartments ruled in gilt. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Shelley after W. Finden to volume one. A very good set, the bindings firm and square with a little fading to the spines and minor rubbing to the extremities. The contents with the bookplate of Herbert Ten Broeck Jacquelin to the front pastedowns are otherwise clean and bright throughout. A superb set of this most important collected edition, wonderfully bound. The first complete edition of Percy Shelley's poetical works, complied and edited by his wife Mary Shelley. Previously, Shelley's poetry had largely been brought before the public in a multiplicity of either private and small-run editions (many of which had become increasingly scarce) or pirated editions. Percy's father, Sir Timothy Shelley, feared that a new collected edition would be likely to draw fresh attention to the radical writings of his son. Recognising, however, that obscurity was unlikely in any case, he relented and dropped his objections to Mary producing an official edition. After having attempted to do so since her husband's death in 1822, Mary thus brought Percy's work into the mainstream. Her notes, which added significantly to the fuller comprehension of Percy's poetic writings, have since become inseparable from the texts themselves, and her endeavours ultimately served to secure his position as one of the foremost poets of … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

Bouvier, John
Philadelphia: T. & J.W. Johnson, 1839. First edition of this cornerstone of American law. Quarto, 2 volumes bound in period style calf, gilt titles and tooling. First editions are rare, with no examples appearing at auction in the last 80 years. John Bouvier was born in Codogno, France, but came to the United States at an early age. He became a U.S. citizen in 1812, was admitted to the bar in 1818, and began practicing law in Philadelphia. During his years of practice and study, he noticed the lack of a solid American law dictionary. He decided to fill this need, and worked on a new law dictionary incessantly for 10 years. One of his main goals was to distinguish American law from its English antecedent. Bouvier's law dictionary continues to be used by scholars, lawyers, and judges interested in early meanings of legal terms and originalist interpretations of the U.S. Constitution. See, e.g., Bullock v. Bankchampaign, NA, 133 S.Ct. 1754 (2013) (defining "defalcation"); Nancy F. Cott, "Marriage and Women's Citizenship in the United States: 1830-1934," 103 Amer. Hist.

Charles Dickens
England: Chapman and Hall. The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens 1839 first edition with two sets of the rare "extra illustrations" by Kenny Meadows and Peter Palette This first edition is particularly rare because it contains two complete sets of extra illustrations -- the 24 portraits of the main characters by Kenny Meadows, plus 30 various scenes to the story by Peter Palette -- in addition to the standard 39 plates by Hablot Knight Browne (known as Phiz). Bound in two handsome red calf full leather bindings, lettered and decorated in gilt on spine, with marbled endpapers, gilt page edges, and signed by Riviere & Son. Published in 1839 by Chapman and Hall in London. It is very uncommon to find this first edition with all three sets of illustrations that were created for Nicholas Nickleby, and also it is uncommon to find this title in a two volume full leather set as well. This is great for a Dickens collector, so do not miss out! Both volumes are in excellent overall condition. They have no bookplates or writing inside, only a neat ownership signature. Please see my other listings for a first edition of Charles Dickens full leather binding of Christmas Books, the first collected edition (1852), and also a deluxe set of his five Christmas Books, which includes the 12th edition of A Christmas Carol (1845).

With first state issue points such as the important 'latter for letter' to page 160, 'Inscribed' to page 238, 'Visiters' rather than 'visitors' to page 272, 'incontestible' for 'incontestable' to page 297, 'flys' for 'flies' to page 245, 'suprise' for 'surprise' to page 586. Also the first four plates have the publisher's imprint. This copy has the correct 'sister' for 'visiter' to page 123, which was said to be corrected alongside the 'latter/letter' issue point whilst the work was still in parts. Therefore, some of this text has been formed from the original first state parts as it has latter instead of letter. Issue points called for by Smith 5, Podeschi A41 and Eckel pp 64-5. Illustrated, with a frontispiece and 39 plates. Collated, complete. Nicholas Nickleby we originally published as a serial from 1838 to 1839. This is the first edition of the novel in book form.

Bouvier, John
T. & J.W. Johnson, Philadelphia, 1839. First edition of this cornerstone of American law. Quarto, 2 volumes bound in period style calf, gilt titles and tooling. First editions are rare, with no examples appearing at auction in the last 80 years. John Bouvier was born in Codogno, France, but came to the United States at an early age. He became a U.S. citizen in 1812, was admitted to the bar in 1818, and began practicing law in Philadelphia. During his years of practice and study, he noticed the lack of a solid American law dictionary. He decided to fill this need, and worked on a new law dictionary incessantly for 10 years. One of his main goals was to distinguish American law from its English antecedent. Bouvier's law dictionary continues to be used by scholars, lawyers, and judges interested in early meanings of legal terms and originalist interpretations of the U.S. Constitution. See, e.g., Bullock v. Bankchampaign, NA, 133 S.Ct. 1754 (2013) (defining "defalcation"); Nancy F. Cott, "Marriage and Women's Citizenship in the United States: 1830-1934," 103 Amer. Hist. Rev. 1440, 1447 (1998) (defining "citizen"). Over 20 editions have been published since 1839, the latest in 2004. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Phinney, 1833. The Bible itself is important as well- the publishers are legendary- The Phinney brothers, Henry and Elihu, carried on the business their father, Elihu Phinney, had started in 1795; the elder Phinney had established a press, bookshop, and newspaper after resettling in Cooperstown from Connecticut. James Fenimore Cooper, a delegate to the 1816 convention that formed the American Bible Society, learned to set type in his shop for fun (Hills, 69). The younger Phinneys, however, were not to be restricted to one shop: They sold their stock (which consisted of their own publications together with books brought in from Philadelphia and New York) from large travelling wagons and established a "bookboat" on the Erie Canal that enabled them to reach a larger portion of western New York. ---------- This is a truly unique piece of history....an early Cooperstown King James Version Bible, The same publisher and edition Used by LDS leader Joseph Smith to help translate the Book of Mormon! Smith used Phinney Bibles to translate from 1828, this is nearly an nearly identical … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

Lewis, Sarah ].
New York: Wiley & Putnam, 1839. WomanÕs Mission appears to be the only published book of the writer Sarah Lewis, whose biographical information remains largely obscure. In WomanÕs Mission, Lewis builds upon the ideas of AimŽ MartinÊ(1781-1844) and argues for the Òseparate spheresÓ model of womenÕs influence and against womenÕs suffrage. The book was well-received and popular; it was cited both favorably and critically in contemporary writings including The Mothers of England by Sarah Stickney Ellis (1843) and A Plea for Woman by Marion Reid (also 1843). Twelvemo. vii pp., 149 pp. PublisherÕs green cloth stamped and ruled in blind, spine lettered and ruled in gilt. A bit of rubbing to corners. One front blank excised, leaving a stub. A bit of light toning and foxing but overall a very good, clean, and tight copy of a scarce book. First American edition. A London edition was also published in 1839. OCLC lists no copies of this American edition. All the editions listed are London editions and specified to be second editions or later. The ÒIntroductory LetterÓ to WomanÕs Mission is an 1839 address from Bishop George Washington Doane (1799-1859) to the students of St. MaryÕs Hall, which he founded in 1837 as an Episcopalian boarding school for girls. The school, which is located in Burlington, New Jersey, is now a coed day school called Doane Academy. Notable alums of the school include the novelist Miriam Coles Harris (1834-1925). While we do not know of any specific connection between Sarah Lewis and St. MaryÕs Hall, it is reasonable to assume that Lewis was affiliated with th … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

The Hand-Book of Swindling. London: Chapman & Hall, 1839. Small octavo, original brown cloth boards, pictorially gilt-stamped and lettered in gilt on front cover. First edition of a popular British satire on 19th-century life, including advice to Americans, written by Douglas Jerrold, one of the founders of Punch Magazine, illustrated with engraved frontispiece and three plates by Phiz. Previous owner's bookplate and signatures on front pastedown. Front cover detached but present. Some expected shelfwear. Very good. "The most brilliant professional humourist of his generation," Douglas Jerrold was a dramatist and satirist who also wrote under several pseudonyms, including "Q" and Captain Whitefeather (M.H. Spielmann). " In the 1850s, Jerrold's name formed part of a triumvirate of literary stardom that tripped off the tongue. Dickens-Jerrold-Thackeray was the phrase you said in one breath [to name] not just writers with a thundering rhetorical presence but [who] dominated the periodical publishing industry. Though Jerrold never became a novelist like his two famous contemporaries, he was an acclaimed master of the short comment piece, the first-person rant, the comic turn, all of which exactly suited the publication with which he became most associated, Punch (Guardian).

[Paris]: n.p., [1839]. 109 x 41 mm. plus wide margins. An interesting and unusual image after Dantan's bronze bust. Carafa's head, in profile, is depicted as the stopper in a bottle of cologne, decorated with a plaque on a chain, within which are the word "eau," a musical note (g), the letter "i" and a circular object (a globe?), forming a rebus which, decoded, reads "Eau Solitaire," an allusion to Carafa's opera Le Solitaire of 1822. Very slightly browned at edges. Sorel 35. Dantan 61. Carafa was a prolific opera composer and life-long friend of Rossini; Le Solitare was one of his greatest successes. Item #22783.

Liszt, Franz, Komponist, Schwiegervater Richard Wagners (1811-1886).
Über die Vorbereitung des ersten Bonner Beethovenfestes mit der Enthüllung des Beethoven-Denkmals, für das sich Liszt seit 1839 eingesetzt und erhebliche eigene Mittel beigesteuert hatte. Da für die Konzerte kein geeigneter Saal vorhanden war, mußte im Schnellverfahren eine hölzerne Festhalle errichtet werden, die danach wieder abgetragen wurde: "Mr. Liszt a l'honneur de saluer Mr. Le Comte de Lostanges et le prie de vouloir bien insérer dans la quotidienne de demain L'annonce ci-jointe. - Le Produit du Concert étant destiné à La Souscription pour le monument de Beethoven. Mr. Liszt est obligé de s'imposer une si grande réserve qu'il a le regret de ne pouvoir lui offrir qu'une Halle." - Das Bonner Beethoven-Denkmal wurde von Ernst Hähnel entworfen und von Jacob Daniel Burgschmiet ausgeführt. Die Enthüllungsfeierlichkeiten fanden am 12. August 1845 statt. Der Höhepunkt des Beethoven-Festes war ganz ohne Zweifel die Inaugurationsfeier des Beethoven-Monuments auf dem Münsterplatz. Begleitet wurde die Enthüllungsfeierlichkeit von einem mehrtägigen Fest, bei dem Franz Liszt Regie übte. Liszt hatte sich mit der enormen Summe von 2.666 Talern an den Gesamtkosten des Denkmals von 13.000 Talern beteiligt. - Ungedruckt.

Dickens, Charles
Chapman and Hall, London, 1839. Bound by Bayntun in three-quarter red calf over cloth boards, all edges gilt. Spine a bid faded, internally an excellent copy. Complete with the half-title and all 40 plates engraved by Phiz. Likely washed at the time of binding (as most plates show little to no foxing). Most of Smith's internal flaws are found, including the ones of pgs. 123 and 160, only found in the earliest copies bound from the parts. Nicholas Nickleby, Dickens' third novel, was originally serialized in monthly parts, then issued as a book in cloth. The publishers also had a small number of copies bound up in the present morocco both for presentation - a census of copies inscribed by Dickens on publication show them all to be in the green morocco binding - and for sale to the public at a higher price. "Dickens' third novel has always been a favourite with the general public. Indeed, it was the book's huge sales that enabled Dickens to give up parliamentary reporting and become a full-time writer.The theatricality of the novel attracted new and more appreciative critical attention [and it] demonstrates the inextricable link between public and private" (Bannerjee). A satire tackling the injustices faced by both women and men within the Victorian class system that relied so heavily the social status of the patriarch, the novel follows Nicholas Nickleby as he seeks to support his mother and sister after his father's death. When Nicholas' father dies after losing all of the family's money, it is up to the young man to emerge as the new and more morally sound patriarch.

Nicholas Nickleby, Dickens' third novel, was originally serialized in monthly parts, then issued as a book in cloth. The publishers also had a small number of copies bound up in the present morocco both for presentation - a census of copies inscribed by Dickens on publication show them all to be in the green morocco binding - and for sale to the public at a higher price. "Dickens' third novel has always been a favourite with the general public. Indeed, it was the book's huge sales that enabled Dickens to give up parliamentary reporting and become a full-time writer...The theatricality of the novel attracted new and more appreciative critical attention [and it] demonstrates the inextricable link between public and private" (Bannerjee). A satire tackling the injustices faced by both women and men within the Victorian class system that relied so heavily the social status of the patriarch, the novel follows Nicholas Nickleby as he seeks to support his mother and sister after his father's death. When Nicholas' father dies after losing all of the family's money, it is up to the young man to emerge as the new and more morally sou … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

1839. I believe this to be a very rare item. I can not find another one for sale anywhere in the world, on any book site or elsewhere. Travellers' and Emigrants' Guide to Wisconsin & Iowa. by Henry I. Abel. Accompanied With a New and Improved Map of Those Territories. With the Addition of Parts of Illinois, Indiana & Michigan. (Also includes what was later to become the state of Minnesota.) This is the second edition - 1839. First edition was 1838 as far as I can determine. Cloth binding is 6" x 4". Cloth is wrinkled and stained to some degree. Map is 22 1/2' x 17 1/4". Some tears at folds. Some minor loss of material at a few spots. Tape repair in one area. Map is by Aug Mitchell. Narrative page is 25" x 20". Again, some tears at folds. Tape staining in places. Please see photos for best description of condition. Although this item is not pristine, it is complete I believe and still relatively decent. Would probably be best to have a qualified person to perform some restoration work on this for best preservation. The Colton's Emigrant Guides are later than this, and several are available for sale. So I am basing my price on what the Colton's usually sell for, also considering condition, but factoring in the rarity of this piece. Happy Collecting!

1839. Folio. 2 Bl. Früher Zeitungsbericht (3 Spalten im unteren Drittel der Titelseite) über das von François Aragon (1786-1853) in einer gemeinsamen Sitzung der Pariser Akademien der Wissenschaften und der schönen Künste der Öffentlichkeit am 19.

Die Rechte an der Erfindung wurden auf Initiative des Physikers François Arago von der französischen Regierung erworben. Sie zahlte dafür eine lebenslange Rente an Daguerre und an Isidore Niépce, den Sohn seines ehemaligen Partners Niépce. - Das zweite Bl. mit größerem Ausschnitt, papierbedingt etwas gebräunt.

Rotterdam plattegrond - Temminck
1839. "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 gebo … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

Leather Binding Overall Condition: Very Good This book weighs 4 KG when packed UK Postage: £ 4.49 US Postage: £ 39.99 EU Postage: £ 26.99 European Postage: £ 36.99 Asia Postage: £ 65.99 Worldwide Postage: £ 99.99 DESCRIPTION Second edition. This biography has been called the second most admirable in the English language, after Boswell's Life of Johnson. It was published a great number of Scott's letters. Lockhart's account of the business transactions between Scott and the Ballantynes and Constable caused an outcry; and in the discussion that followed he showed bitterness in his pamphlet The Ballantyne Humbug handled. The proceeds, which were considerable, Lockhart resigned for the benefit of Scott's creditors. Scott was the first English-language author to have a truly international career in his lifetime, with many contemporary readers in Europe, Australia, and North America. His novels and poetry are still read, and many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and of Scottish literature. Famous titles include Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, The Lady of the Lake, Waverley, The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor. With frontispieces and additional illustrated title pages to each volume.
