Richard Wellesley
n.p., n.d. Fern Hill, Windsor: 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 Primitiae et Reliquiae, for the most part … [Click Below for Full Description]

Just ask! 1839 1ed History of US Navy James Fenimore Cooper Americana War of 1812 "Every trail has its end, and every calamity brings its lesson!" ― James Fenimore Cooper James Fenimore Cooper is one of the most prolific and important American authors of the 19th-century. In addition to his writing career, he served in the United States Navy which lead him to publish his own historical perspective on the U.S. Navy, a work that he had worked on for more than a decade prior to its 1839 American release. Even though 'The History of the Navy' was highly criticized, Cooper is considered to be one of the foremost authoritative authors on the U.S. Navy. This fine, two-volume first English edition describes all the wars, battles, and sea engagements of American warships from the Revolutionary War and late 18th-century through 1815, covering the Battle at Tripoli and important battles in the War of 1812.

John James Audubon
Edinburgh: Adam and Charles Black, 1839. Good with some signs of wear and age. Book has been rebacked, but it retains most of its original spine covering. Please see photos and description. Up for sale is this very rare antique 1839 copy of John James Audubon's, "A Synopsis of the Birds of America." The book has been rebacked at some point in the past, but it retains most of it's original spine covering. The covers of the book have some wear as illustrated in the photos. As shown in the 4th photo, there is an old newspaper clipping about Audubon which is adhered to the back side of the half title page. There are also some remnants of glue and some evidence of previous newspaper clipping removal to the backside of the title page and the top of the preface page as illustrated in the 5th photo. There are some penciled notations to the front inside cover as depicted in the 3rd photo. The pages are lightly toned from age with some scattered foxing or occasional minor spots of soiling/grubbiness. Along with that there is likely the occasional page with some other kind of minor imperfection such as a creased page corner, small tear or chip, etc. All in all a good copy of a very scarce old Audubon book. Please look at the photos to further note the condition and message me with any questions you might have. Thanks!

His support of slavery and of the South during the Civil War has limited the visibility of his works. "In the mid-nineteenth century, William Gilmore Simms did more than any other writer and editor to frame southern self-identity, nationalism, and historical consciousness. He also do more to foster the South's literary life and place in America's imagination." The Simms Initiative, University of South Carolina. "Alone among American novelists of the 19th century, Simms perceived a national literary need, sensed his capability to fulfill it, developed a plan to attain it and lived to complete it. Simms had vision, commitment, intensity and perseverance-ingrediants without which sustained literary accomplishment of the first magnitude is impossible." John C Gould, Simms Biographer.

Erste Ausgabe.- Müllers letzte experimentell-physiologische Arbeit mit bedeutenden Beiträgen über die Natur der menschlichen Stimme. Der Grundbegriff für die Physiologie der Stimme wurde Johannes Müllers Nachweis, daß die Stimme allein durch Schwingungen der wahren Stimmbänder entsteht, wobei er auch erstmals Gesetze über die bei der Stimmbildung wirkende Kräfte aufstellte. Müller experimentierte an isolierten menschlichen Kehlköpfen, denen er durch ein ihnen belassenes Stück Luftröhre Luft zuführte, deren Druck er durch ein seitlich angeschlossenes, mit Wasser oder Quecksilber gefülltes U-Rohr kontrollierte. Durch blasen auf den Kehlköpfen wurden hohe u. tiefe Töne erzeugt. Diese Versuche hat Johannes Müller in seiner Wohnung unter Mitwirkung seiner sehr musikalisch veranlagten Frau durchgeführt, die neben ihn sitzend, auf dem Klavier diese Töne aufsuchte.

Schlegel, August Wilhelm, Literaturhistoriker u. Indologe (1767-1845).
Bonn, 18. II. 1839. 3 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 8vo. Kündigt einem nicht namentlich genannten Adressaten einen neuen Band seiner Vorlesungen an, dankt für die Zusendung eines Nachdrucks und berichtet vom Erfolg der englischen Übersetzung: "[.] ich verspreche Ihnen, die Zwischenzeit der Muße ausschließlich der Durchsicht meiner Vorlesungen zu widmen, dennoch hoffe ich Ihnen den ersten Band zeitig im Frühlinge, und das übrige gegen den nächsten Herbst liefern zu können. [.] Ich sage Ihnen meinen verbindlichsten Dank für den Wiener Nachdruck der Vorlesungen, der hier zu Lande eine Seltenheit ist. Ich hatte bereits in meiner Bibliothek einen Wiener und einen Schwedischen Nachdruck meiner Gedichte. Von der Englischen Übersetzung meiner Vorlesungen sind in Nordamerica vier Nachdrucke erschienen. In England, wo kein Nachdruck erlaubt ist, war die ganze Auflage seit Jahren erschöpft, das Buch ist aus dem Buchhandel verschwunden, und ein Exemplar gilt den doppelten Preis. Überhaupt scheint mir das ausländische Publicum gewogener zu seyn, als das deutsche; [.]". - Schlegel hatte ab dem Jahr 1818 den Lehrstuhl für Indologie an der Universität Bonn inne. Neben seiner Lehrtätigkeit arbeitete er an der lateinichen Übersetzung des Ramayana, eines indischen Nationalepos, das zwischen 1829 und 1838 in drei Bänden erschien. In den Jahren 1819/1820 war Schlegel der Literaturlehrer Heinrich Heines. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Liszt, Franz, Komponist (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.

I: 13, 11, 11, 9 pp. II: 13, 11, 11, 11 pp. III: 15, 13, 13, 13 pp. With fine decorative titles printed in sepia to each quartet. Staining (mostly marginal) to first few leaves of first quartet, including title, and outer edges of third quartet, otherwise very good copies. First Editions. Very scarce. Not in Krause. Müller-Reuter I, pp. 131-133. Hoboken 10: 201, 202, 203. "One of the most gifted and versatile prodigies, Mendelssohn stood at the forefront of German music during the 1830s and 40s, as conductor, pianist, organist and, above all, composer. His musical style, fully developed before he was 20, drew upon a variety of influences, including the complex chromatic counterpoint of Bach, the formal clarity and gracefulness of Mozart and the dramatic power of Beethoven and Weber..." "The three quartets op.44, written during the idyllic period of Mendelssohn's honeymoon and first year of marriage, show signs of a Classical tendency." R. Larry Todd in Grove Music Online.

Small 8vo. xii, [13] + 14-268 pp. Publisher's dark green/black blind-stamped cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Previous owner engraved bookplate for Isaac N. Seligman of Willow Brook affixed inside front board. Seligman was (1855-1917) was an American banker and communal worker.

The first two chapters are on the early history of the Islands up to the visit of Captain Cook. Chapter III, Introduction of Christianity, discusses Hawaii between Captain Cook's death and the arrival of the first missionaries and includes an account of the death of Kamehameha; the succession of Kamehameha II and the powerful position of Kaahumanu; and the demolishing the kapu system, an event that, he says, has no parallel in the history of the world. Following this is a general history of the progress of the mission.. (American Imprints 55361; Forbes 1141; Sabin 19991). [Attributes: First Edition]
