SHELLEY, Mary Wollstonecraft - Frederick Schiller
London: Richard Bentley, 1839. THIRD EDITION, FOURTH PRINTING, of the first revised edition of Shelley's masterpiece and the first to contain an illustration. First printing of engraved frontis dated 1831. The frontis depicts the creature coming to life. Bound in contemporary 1/2 tan calf, spine expertly relined with the original spine laid down. Text clean and bright a VERY GOOD copy. In her introduction, Shelley contextualizes the creation of her tale: "It proved a wet, ungenial summer, and incessant rain often confined us for days to the house. Some volumes of ghost stories, translated from the German into French, fell into our hands 'We will each write a ghost story,' said Lord Byron; and his proposition was acceded to" Apparently quite scarce. Auction records locate only 3 copies appearing at auction over the last 40 years. The last one in 2000. This printing was apparently issued with and without the additional engraved title-page dated 1831. WorldCat locate 9 copies of the 1839 edition 7 without the engraved title-page and 2 with.

LEURET (François) & GRATIOLET (Pierre)
J.B. Baillière et Fils, 1839-1857, Paris. 2 vol. in-8 (21 x 13 cm), XIII, 592 pp. et XII, 692 pp. ; pleine toile verte moderne muette, première de couverture contrecollé sur le plat supérieur du premier volume, quelques rousseurs, légères traces de soulignement et accolades au crayon rouge sur deux pages (pp. 111-112) ; sinon intérieur en très bon état. Édition originale très rare. Exemplaire complet des deux volumes de texte, sans l'atlas. Les trois volumes, mis en vente séparément sur une période de 18 ans, ne se rencontrent qu'exceptionnellement réunis. Leuret, auteur du premier volume, décrit les circonvolutions cérébrales et montre que leur organisation n'est pas fortuite mais fixe dans un même groupe d'animaux. Il estime que les variations entre les espèces représentent un index de différenciation, et reconnait que le type cérébral humain se rapproche de celui des singes. Le second volume, rédigé par Gratiolet, après le décès de Leuret, est consacré à l'anatomie comparée de l'homme et du singe, avec une confrontation des données anatomique et de l?'intelligence. Gratiolet avait déjà fait paraître en 1854 son Mémoire sur les plis cérébraux de l'homme et des primates, premier travail important sur les circonvolutions du cerveau humain. Gratiolet est le premier à décrire les 5 lobes du cerveau (dont l'insula) et à préciser leurs limites. Il décrit de façon remarquable les circonvolutions (gyrus), les sillons (sulcus) et les scissures. Le nom de Gratiolet a été attaché à certaines structures (éponymes) : anse pédonculaire, pli du passage inférieur, pli de passage supérieu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wellesley, Richard, 1st Marquis Wellesley
privately printed, 1839. First printing? Certainly the first separate printing. Large 8vo, pp. [4]; bound in contemporary, and likley original, purple velvet-covered boards, maroon morocco label lettered in gilt on upper cover; recently rebacked; the boards worn, with loss to the velvet, corners worn, but text clean and the binding sound. The text leaves show signs of having been folded. The blank flyleaves show no signs of having been folded. A likely scenario suggests that Lord Wellesley had his pair of poems privately printed up on a bifolium, in probably a very small print run, and gave copies to a few select friends. One of these friends esteemed the poems and /or author to such an extent that he or she had the piece bound up specially in this binding. So, not the printer's binding, nor the author's, but instead commissioned or arranged by the recipient. This separate printing seems to precede the volume from which the text is usually known, namely his book Primitiae et Reliquiae, which was published first in 1840. Wellesley was Governor-General of India, and Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and had several other prominent roles, not least being eldest brother to the Duke of Wellington, hero of Waterloo. He was also renowned throughout his life, though perhaps mostly among his literary friends, as a superb Neo-Latin and English poet. Unlocated. No copy located in COPAC, OCLC, or KVK. No copy in the British Library or Library of Congress. Not in NUC. "In 1840 he privately printed (and often revised later) a little book entitled Primitiæ et Reliquiæ, for the most part compose … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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.

John Alston
Glasgow: Smith & Elder & Co, 1839. Front and back cover scratched and damaged although still in good shape. Foxing too. Please feel free to make an offer. All offers will be considered. This book was made a specimen (there is no other copy) of John Alstons' improved method of writing for the blind. This book is the first edition of Braille in plain English by John Alston and is accompanied by a letter, in Braille, from John Alston. This book was publisher in 1839 and is, I believe, to be the only one every made. Braille was originally invented in france by Louis Braille but John Alston invented the british version later on. About the book The Westminster Shorter Catechism is a catechism written in 1646 and 1647 by the Westminster Assembly, a synod of English and Scottish theologians and laymen intended to bring the Church of England into greater conformity with the Church of Scotland. The assembly also produced the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Westminster Larger Catechism. A version without Scripture citations was completed on 25 November 1647 and presented to the Long Parliament, and Scripture citations were added on 14 April 1649. Catechesis is a practice of teaching the Christian faith. New converts to Christianity were taught through lectures during the first four centuries of the Church's existence, but this practice was largely abandoned with the rise of Christendom. Christian humanists and Protestant Reformers sought to revive the practice, including the Reformed. John Calvin's Genevan Catechism was especially influential among the British Reformed.

Chapman and Hall, 1839. Browne, Hablot K. ['Phiz"]; Meadows, Kenney. First Edition. Hardcover. First printing, mixed state, octovo size, 707 pp. Very good. This was writer Charles Dickens' (1812-1870) third novel, widely anticipated and loved. He is often considered the greatest of the Victorian era novelists, blending drama and comedy into compelling stories. In this novel Dickens explores the social issues that his works are known for, such as, harsh boarding schools, the privilege of royal title and wealth, social customs of the day and the plight of the working class. The plot focuses on the hardships courageously navigated by young Nicholas Nickleby after his father passes away. The extra illustrations provided were drawn by Joseph Kenny Meadows (1790 - 1874), he is best known for his drawings published in Punch magazine. He was a friend of Charles Dickens and several other writers of the period. These caricatures add a visual element to the characters depicted by Dickens [n.b. above information from Wiki]. ___DESCRIPTION: Half red morocco leather over marbled paper boards, six compartments on spine, five with gilt, title and author in gilt to one compartment, embossed decorative and gilt borders to front and rear boards, all edges marbled, frontis of a young Charles Dickens (supplied), thirty-nine plates by Hablot K.

MARTENS, Conrad.
Sydney: 1839. Watercolour on board, image 46 x 64 cms. Signed lower right and dated 1839. Mounted and framed. The rediscovery of a major Sydney painting by Conrad Martens (1801-1878). At the time this outstanding painting was commissioned, the English-born artist Martens had been in New South Wales for four years. He had arrived in Sydney in 1835, in company with Charles Darwin, aboard HMS Beagle, on which he had travelled as voyage artist in 1833-1834. Once settled in Sydney, Martens built his artistic reputation with a loyal clientele amongst officials and pastoralists of the colony and was widely recognised by the picture-buying elite as a superior landscape artist; today he is probably the best known of all colonial artists. One of the leading members of the colonial establishment was the Colonial Secretary, Alexander Macleay who held the most important public office in the colony after the Governor from 1826 to 1837. For more than a decade, the Colonial Secretary's house was also the family's home (although Macleay spent much of that time planning his grand new house at Elizabeth Bay, designed by John Verge, the fashionable architect of the day). This watercolour by Martens is the most accomplished extant depiction of the Colonial Secretary's residence with its lush semi-tropical garden setting, but it also provides a wonderful image of Francis Greenway's fountain situated in Macquarie Place as it was in its original form. This little structure caused the architect great grief for its perceived extravagance when he was questioned by J.T. Bigge, the Royal Commissioner i … [Click Below for Full Description]

VRIESE, Willem Hendrik de
Amsterdam: Johannes M�ller, 1839. Amsterdam: Johannes Müller, 1839. Octavo, two hand-coloured lithographic plates, manuscript presentation inscription to "Lys" (for Cornelius?) van der Hoop in Salzburg; a fine copy in the original printed green glazed-paper boards. Rare: a superb copy in the original boards with a family manuscript presentation. This small work by the botanist Willem Hendrik de Vriese is a detailed survey of the truly enormous number of exotic plants being grown at the Villa Spaarnberg, the country estate of Adriaan van der Hoop (1778-1854), a wealthy Dutch banker with a passionate interest in exotic botany: the range of his interests is summed up by the two plants depicted on the fine lithographic plates (a Lily from Japan and a "Theophrasta" from Hispaniola). Significantly, van der Hoop and his gardeners had been assiduous in their collection of Australian plants, assembling a remarkable group for such an early date, especially in a continental garden: by our count no fewer than 188 are listed, from grevilleas and banksias through to Gymea Lilies, and even including a scattering of eucalypts and other full-grown trees (full list available on request). Despite its relevance to Australian botany, we can see no record of a copy being held in Australia. It is reasonably well-recorded that the Villa's gardens were full of plants from the older Dutch colonies, notably southern Africa and the East Indies, but van der Hoop had much larger ambitions: the truly enormous number of exotics that are noticed in the catalogue is testament to the way in which such gard … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dickens, Charles
Chapman and Hall, 1839. Cruikshank, George. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 534 p. Very Good. First one-volume edition, with 40 sketches by George Cruikshank. Originally published in two series/three volumes, "Chapman and Hall obtained the copyright of Sketches in 1837, they published all of them in twenty monthly parts from November 1837 through June 1839. Cruikshank designed a cover, enlarged the plates and created 13 new illustrations for these monthly parts. In May 1839, Chapman and Hall published these parts complete in one volume with all 40 of Cruikshank's illustrations" (Walter E. Smith, Charles Dickens in the Original Cloth), hence the "New Edition" referred to on the title page. Half title page has the "Vote for Spruggins" illustration, full page drawing before title page has crowd waving to two gentlemen in a balloon, indicative of first "one volume" edition published. ***DESCRIPTION: Half navy leather over marbled boards, marbled endpapers and edges. Five raised bands on leather spine, compartments 1, 3, 4, and 5 with gilt decorations, compartment 2 red leather label with title in gilt, compartment 6 gilt device of the head of a double-horned animal. Armorial bookplate on front pastedown of Francis George Dyne (1823-1882/4), the binding is likely custom for the family library as the horned animal at the tail of the spine is mirrored on the left above the field of the coat of arms.

Charles Dickens
1839. For sale is a VERY rare FIRST ISSUE of the First Edition of Nicholas Nickleby, by Charles Dickens. Published by Chapman and Hall, London, 1839. A complete suite of plates by Phiz. 624p.p. All of Smith's textual points here present, including 'latter' to p.160, and 'visiter' to p.121. Bound in a scarce and fine publisher's deluxe half Morocco, over cloth boards. To the spine are raised bands, finely tooled in gilt, and the title in gilt. The author's name 'Chas. Dickens' to the spine, along with 'LONDON. 1839' to the foot. Original marbled endpapers and page edges. Externally the spine and boards are largely bright, with only occasional extraneous wear, commensurate with age, in places. Internally it is refreshingly very clean, and and one of the brightest examples we have handled. The plates have the predictable odd spot/toning in places. Overall, to find an example of this title is indeed rare, particularly bound in such a rare ORIGINAL publisher's binding, and in the first state. One of the best-loved works of the C19th, this fine and scarce example would grace any collection, and it comes VERY highly recommended.

1839. "...The greatest of the anti-slavery pamphlets; in all probability, the most crushing indictment of any institution ever written." Historian Dwight L. Dumond, in reference to American Slavery: As It Is. Here we offer the first edition of the most influential of the United States abolition sources and the first fusion of the anti-slavery movement with the women's rights movement: American Slavery: As It Is, by Theodore White Weld, published anonymously by The American Anti-Slavery Society, New York City, in 1839. This extremely rare volume is filled with narratives of victims and witnesses to the depraved institution of American slavery. It was wildly influential, providing vivid, documented accounts for the anti-slavery movement and even serving as a source work for Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin that was still 13 years away. With the modern acceptance of symbols of the confederacy as "heritage," this seminal volume is still relevant today. Recently very attractively rebound in full calf leather with acid-free black endpapers. Text block is age-toned and darkened on edge from perhaps once sitting too close to the fireplace, as the last page appears soot-darkened (please see pics.)

Charles Dickens
1839. For sale is a particularly rare Dickens publication, in the form of Oliver Twist; or, The Parish Boy's Progress. Published by A. and W. Galignani & Co., Paris, 1839. Complete. 8vo. It was long thought that the 1846 Bradbury and Evans Edition of this title was the first in one-volume, so this scarce edition merits bibliographical note, for it appeared seven-years hence. It is not mentioned in Eckel or Gimbel, presumably the reason being neither had located a copy themselves. Bound in contemporaneous green calf, over marbled boards. The spine finely decorated in gilt. Original marbled endpapers. All page edges untrimmed. Externally it remains in pleasing order; the calf only predictably rubbed, but this is commensurate with age. The hinges remain very firm. Internally, save the odd sporadic spot, it remains delightfully clean throughout. Overall, this volume will add greatly to any serious Dickens collection; not a title often seen on the open market, this is indeed an opportunity not to be missed. [Attributes: First Edition]

Reliure de l'époque un peu usée (un coin arraché), intérieur en très bon état malgré quelques rousseurs sans gravité. (voir lien ci dessous) Description en photos ici: https://photos.app.goo.gl/kpDyR5PWDpPtryQg6 La Russie en 1839 est le chef-d'œuvre du Marquis de Custine. Entrepris pour plaider personnellement la cause de son ami Ignace Gurowski, ce récit sera une révélation. Devant l'effrayant spectacle de la société russe qui s'offre à son analyse, l'aristocrate dans l'âme qu'est Custine devient une sorte de révolutionnaire "face à la servitude et plus encore à l'effrayant silence où tout un peuple est muré". "Le despotisme n'est jamais si redoutable que lorsqu'il prétend faire du bien, car alors il croit excuser ses actes les plus révoltants par ses intentions !". Les dures réflexions de Custine sur le gouvernement des tsars jalonnent l'ouvrage et vont crescendo. Ce qui le frappe le plus dans "l'âme russe" c'est cette acceptation de la servitude. Il parle de mystique et de volupté de la servitude. Custine justifie et annonce la révolution russe : "nos petits enfants ne verront peut-être pas l'explosion que nous pouvons cependant présager dès aujourd'hui comme inévitable". (Dictionnaire des œuvres). La conclusion prend le ton pamphlétaire : "Quand votre fils sera mécontent en France, usez de ma recette, dites lui : Allez en Russie". C'est un voyage utile.
