Aquarell und Deckfarbenmalerei von Mary Ellen Best, Um, 1839. 27,3:37,6 cm. Stellenweise minimal berieben, kleine, von vorne fast unsichtbare, Papierläsur. - Unter Handarbeitspassepartout. Mary Ellen Best (York 1809 - 1891 Darmstadt), eine gebürtige Engländerin, schuf eine große Anzahl verschiedener Innenansichten von Wohnräumen. Die detailreich ausgeführten Arbeiten, oftmals mit Personenstaffagen vermitteln einen genauen Einblick in das Leben der Zeit um 1830/1840. Die vorliegende Arbeit, fällt durch die Motivwahl aus dem Rahmen ihrer üblichen Sujets, zeigt jedoch die Kunstfertigkeit und den speziellen Stil der Künstlerin auf ganz besondere Weise. - Sehr schöne, farbfrische Arbeit.

1839. Beauties Of The Bosphorus. Shipped USPS PRIORITY MAIL. Beauties of the Bosphorus by Miss Pardoe published in 1839. This is the Deluxe eddition with gold embrodery. Please reach out with any questions. So Miss Julia Pardoe waxes eloquent in her 1839 book, "The Beauties of the Bosphorus." 1836 was the year that the 30-year-old woman arrived in Istanbul with her father on their way to Egypt. But she was so struck with the Turkish city that was in the midst of turning into a western European city that she stayed much longer than she had planned. She was a keen observer and already a published author in 1836. She has often been compared with the wife of the British ambassador, Lady Mary Wortley Montague who was in Istanbul in 1717-1718 and wrote a series of letters to friends and relatives in England that described what life was like at that time. But the Montague letters are short, often rattled in order to meet the sailing time of a boat returned to England and apologetic in case she bored the reader. - Niki Gamm.

Dickens, Charles
London: Chapman and Hall, 1839. First edition. 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 sou … [Click Below for Full Description]

After her death in 1835 they were republished widely, usually as collections of individual lyrics and not the longer, annotated works and integrated series that made up her books. For surviving women poets, like Britons Caroline Norton and Letitia Elizabeth Landon, Americans Lydia Sigourney and Frances Harper, the French Amable Tastu and German Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, and others, she was a valued model, or (for Elizabeth Barrett Browning) a troubling predecessor; and for male poets including Tennyson and Longfellow, an influence less acknowledged. Hemans' critical reputation has been re-examined in recent years. Her work has resumed a role in standard anthologies and in classrooms and seminars and literary studies, especially in the U. S. It is likely that further poems will be familiar to new readers, such as "Th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Adams, John Quincy
Washington, D.C., 1839. [1]p., on a folded folio sheet, with integral blank leaf. Quarto. Noticeable fraying and chipping along right side affecting a few words. Mild foxing, old folds, docketing on verso in later blue ink. Very good overall. A wonderful glimpse into the erudite mind of the sixth President of the United States during his post-presidential Congressional career. Throughout his public and private life, John Quincy Adams demonstrated that he was a firm believer in the power of reason and of science. In this letter, Adams responds to correspondence from American physician Thomas Sewall, who was an ardent debunker of pseudo-sciences such as phrenology. Adams dismisses phrenology as a serious pursuit, and notes that he has often wondered how two phrenologists could ever look each other in the face without laughing. Adams opens the letter by telling Sewall he has "read with great satisfaction your two Lectures upon the Science of Phrenology, which I have never been able to prevail upon myself to think of as a Serious Speculation." Here, Adams is likely referring to Sewall's AN EXAMINATION OF PHRENOLOGY IN TWO LECTURES, published in London the previous year. In the present letter, Adams associates phrenology with alchemy, judicial astrology, and augury (all pseudo-disciplines decidedly out of favor among contemporary scientists). He compares some aspects of phrenological theory to George Berkeley's "antimaterial system," now known as Berkeley's theory of immaterialism, which called for a denial of material reality. Adams then congratulates Sewall on the success … [Click Below for Full Description]

Clement C. Moore
This listing is for a very early printing of "A Visit From St. Nicholas," dated 1839. First edition, thus. It is one of the earliest complete and unabridged printings of the poem in book form, including the old English and Dutch parlance (thro', Dunder, Blixen, etc.). Rare to find today, especially in nice condition, the book is a collection of prose and poetry used in schools for speech exercises. While anthologies were instrumental in putting the poem in front of mature audiences, elocution books introduced it to children and was a strong contributor to the growing awareness of the poem. Still obscure at the time, the poem was published here anonymously and called "Christmas Times," one of several alternate titles used in very early printings. It is interesting to note that the editor actually recognized St. Nicholas as "Santa Claus" via a footnote to the poem--pretty amazing since it would be many years before the Dutch, German, and English personages would be combined to form the iconic American Santa Claus. The book measures 4.5 x 7.5 inches. Construction is in-board leather binding with 504 pages. At 180 years old, it is in very good condition overall. The covers shows moderate wear considering age. The leather has become stiff with a bit of bowing at the outer corners. The pages have foxing throughout, some areas more than others, and there are a few uneven pages at the end. Binding is tight.

Hartford, Conn: American Pub. Co, 1839. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I can provide a link to many more photos. Just ask! 1880 1st/1st Mark Twain A Tramp Abroad Travel Illustrated Satire Alps CLASSIC "That's the difference between governments and individuals. Governments don't care, individuals do." - Mark Twain, A Tramp Abroad This Mark Twain novel, "A Tramp Abroad' is a natural extension of 'The Innocents Abroad' as a travel narrative, a return to the Old World. As a cultural document, it is also a natural continuation of the great popular movement of tourism, wherein the 'innocent' becomes a 'tramp'." (Melton,78). This adventure voyages book is not one of Twain's finer works, as many readers feel he rambles and lacks a sense of direction, but by writing with a sense of ironic prose and satire, "A Tramp Abroad" is still a desirable and recognizable Twain novel. Twain's third travel book describing his month-long trip to central and southern Europe in the summer of 1878 with his friend, Reverend Joseph Twitchell A very enjoyable and humorous work, in which the author blends autobiography and fiction, facts and tall tales.

DAGUERRE, Louis-Jacques Mande.
Paris: Bethune and Plon for Susse freres and Delloye, 1839. First edition. First edition, second but first obtainable issue (see below), of Daguerre's exposition of his photographic process, 'the beginnings of photography" (Horblit); this is a fine copy in original printed wrappers and very rare in this condition. "Perhaps no other invention ever captured the imagination of the public to such a degree and conquered the world with such lightning rapidity as the daguerreotype" (Gernsheim, The History of Photography, p. 71). "The daguerreotype is a photographic image with a mirror-like surface on a silver or silver-coated copper plate. A unique photograph, the daguerreotype is not produced from a negative, and the final image appears either positive or negative depending on the angle of reflected light" (Hannavy, p. 365). Daguerre (1787-1851), a gifted set designer and creator of the famous Diorama, a picture show based on lighting effects, began experimenting in the 1820s with fixing the images of the camera obscura on silver chloride paper. His lack of success stimulated his interest in the heliographic method invented by Nicéphore Niépce (1765-1833), who had produced the first successful photographic image in 1826 or 1827 on a pewter plate coated with bitumen of Judea dissolved in oil of lavender, and in 1829 Daguerre succeeded in persuading the reluctant Niépce to become his partner. After Niépce's death in the spring of 1835, Daguerre serendipitously discovered a quicker method of exposing and developing the Niépcian image through the application of mercury vapour.

Reynolds by E. A. Reynolds, 1840, " small spot on rear board, and the spine just a litle bit sunned, very near fine. "Sarah Lewis was a writer on the status of women [about whom little is known]. Woman's Mission, published anonymously in 1839 and later attributed to her, is her only work...this influential treatise...aimed at middle-class women within the home whose role [she] wishes to elevate but not extend in any public or political way...she also suggests that female moral influence will have its effect on the wider world, and will ultimately improve social and political attitudes...the reassuringly moderate ideology was well received by reviewers for journals usually on opposite sides of the debates on the question of women...the very moderation of Lewis's position with regard to political rights for women seems to have helped the dissemination of her ideas, which stimulated debate, and explained how far the position of women could be improved without a more radical programme."

MARRYAT, Captain Frederick.
London Henry Colburn, 1839. First edition; 3 vols, 8vo; half-title in vol. I as called for by Sadleir, bound without the advertisements to vol. III, initial blanks present in each vol., internally very good, armorial bookplate to front pastedown to each vol., further bookplate to front fly-leaf of first vol.; contemporary half calf with marbled boards, spines decorated in gilt with leather spine labels, scuff to paper of vol. III lower cover, but overall very good; [iv], 300; [ii], 290; [ii], 276pp. An excellent first edition three-decker of this classic gothic tale by Frederick Marryat, based on the legend of 'The Flying Dutchman', but with numerous additional supernatural elements supplied by the author, including ghosts, demons and even a very early appearance in literature of a werewolf, subsequently extracted for lycanthropic anthologies under the title The White Wolf of the Hartz Mountains. Captain Marryat (1792-1848) was a prolific figure in the 19th century, chiefly as the author of numerous popular sea stories, most famously perhaps the semi-autobiographical novel Mr Midshipman Easy (1836), as well as an early novel for children, The Children of the New Forest (1847). He also established a system of maritime flag signalling, known subsequently as 'Marryat's Code'. Beyond the bookplates mentioned, each title-page also bears the pencilled name 'W.H. Ince'; intriguingly there was a coeval Mr W.H. Ince who found some modest fame for publishing a story from his uncle Henry Ince, who had reported witnessing a giant sea snake whilst serving as Ordnance Store-keeper at Hal … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dark blue calf over marbled boards, intricate gilt tooling to spine, four raised bands, red spine label to which title lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers; pp. [iv], 306, [ii], 303, 1 (ad), [ii], 312; an excellent copy internally with only the faintest and most occasional foxing, externally an attractive binding, particularly the spine which remains unfaded, the covers are midly rubbed in places, but little more than minor scuffing. Provenance: From the Library of the book collector Robert J Hayhurst, with his naval bookplate to front paste down. Hayhurst was a Lancashire chemist and bibliophile, who amassed a large number of Naval History, Travel, and eighteenth century Literature books during the 20th century. "A collector of books, in a delightful room at his home, white-painted bookshelves stacked high on all the available wall space show to advantage the hand-tooled leather bindings of a collection that has been acquired slowly and with discrimination over the years" (The Chemist and Druggist, 7 September, 1957).First edition. Neale's three-volume maritime tale of gothic terror, which weaves murder, sharks, guns and more murder into a classic gothic novel of bad people doing bad things to each other. Pirates, mutiny and messages in bottles on the high seas give The Flying Dutchman all anyone could want from an adventure on the ocean. Scenes of particular note include:A gunfight with a shark (the shark does not have a gun, alas)An army of women assailing pirates … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edgar Allan Poe
First issue of Hyperion, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Printed in 1839. Bound in the original boards. Printed on quality rag paper. Thus us one of his earliest works, so the print count was quite low. Generalized wear. Original semifinal/bald eagle plate with some early ownership names and numbers. Generally very nice. Bindings have wear as clearly shown. Labels are abraded. Book plate in volume two is partially removed. Text with done stains and smudges but overall quite nice. Well laid out and a pleasure to read. A low print count, perhaps well under 1000 sets ever printed. Though 2200 sets were to be issued, the publisher Samuel Colman was bankrupt by the end of 1839 and the remaining unsold copies, including unbound sheets, were seized by creditors (see Robert L. Gale, "A Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Companion (2003), p. 44). [Attributes: First Edition]

Bound without half-title. Issue points: Nickleby is a notoriously complex book bibliographically. This copy has all but five of Smith's first issue text points (no "visiter" for "sister on p. 123, but with "latter" for "letter" on p. 160, indicating a copy bound from early parts, as well as "inscsribed" on p. 238). The frontispiece and first four states are presumed to be of the first issue, but the lower edge is trimmed. The plate at page 248 is Phiz's plate 3 (omits the word "in"); the plate at p. 356 is one of Phiz's first three plates (with "Mr. Linkwater" in caption); plate at p 457 with the words "the lodgings of" (Phiz plate 1, no priority of issue).

Small 8vo, xxi, (3), 74 pp. Original pebbled plum cloth, upper cover lettered in gilt (partly worn away as often), a very good copy in a variant original binding, slightly worn around the edges, upper hinge a touch weak, internally bright and very attractive. Enclosed in a modern protective box. § First Typographical Issue, the issue with the poem "The Little Vagabond" not present - this has long been held to be the first issue (see Keynes) although others have claimed that it was present but cancelled due to content and thus this is the second issue. Either case is plausible; copies of each issue turn up with about the same frequency which is to say very rarely. The preface (by J.J. Garth Wilkinson) gives a mostly favorable account of Blake's life in the context of his work and concludes stirringly: "If the volume gives one impulse to the New Spiritualism which is now dawning on the world;-if it leads one reader to think, that all Reality for him, in the long run, lies out of the limits of space and time; and that spirits, and not bodies, and still less garments, are men; if it gives one blow, even the faintest, to those term-shifting juggleries which usurp the name of "Philosophical Systems," (and all the energies of all the forms of genuine Truth must be henceforth expended on these effects,) it will have done its work in its little day..."
