Paris Carillian-Goeury et Vve Dalmont 1839. Grand in-4 1 feuillet non chiffré (titre) 2-214pp 1 feuillet non chiffré de corrections et additions. Demi basane blonde, dos lisse orné en place des nerfs de filets acajou à froid et de filets dorés, reliure postérieure (Rameau). Orné d'une belle carte hors texte et de 15 planches doubles montées sur onglet (les planches IX, X, XV repliées et les planches VII, VIII dépliantes). Quelques pâles rousseurs par endroits. Bel exemplaire bien complet de son texte, de la carte et des planches dans une reliure postérieure de bonne qualité et en parfait état. Né au Luc (Var) en 1797, décédé à Paris en 1873, le Polytechnicien et ingénieur Jean-Baptiste Apollinaire Lebas reçut mission de Louis-Philippe de ramener d'Egypte l'obélisque du Temple de Louxor, offert à la France en 1830 par le vice-roi Mehemet-Ali. L'ouvrage que nous proposons est le récit de cette grande aventure et prouesse technique. On y lira le récit du voyage de Lebas jusqu'à Louxor avec ses appréciations sur les m?urs et usages des Egyptiens, puis la relation de toutes les étapes de l'abattage de l'obélisque. Après une brève excursion en Nubie, viennet la description de l'arrive du monument en France et de son érection sur la Place de la Concorde. Lebas termine par une traduction du compte-rendu de Fontana qui, en 1586, érigea à Rome l'obélisque de Caligula. D'intéressantes informations, réunies en appendices, concernent les connaissances mécaniques des Anciens et des calculs pour déterminer les diverses man?uvres dont l'obélisque a été l'objet.

SHELLEY, Mary Wollstonecraft - Frederick Schiller
London: Richard Bentley, 1839, 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.

"A very beautiful book, and one that should take preference over its later and more popular rival, the Original Views of London [by Boys, from] 1842...Apart from the brilliance, sensitivity, and technical mastery of the drawing on stone there is the great, and often under-estimated, technical and artistic achievement of Hullmandel in making possible the transmission of such drawings, and in developing the cool, transparent, graduated tints, subtle in colouring, on which the unique effect of the book depends..."

Finely bound by Zaehnsdorf for McClurg in brown polished full calf, spines gilt in compartments with dark red morocco title labels gilt, sides bordered with double gilt rule, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Some minor rubbing to extremities, scrape across front board of vol. three, an excellent set, sound and internally clean. Engraved portrait frontispiece to vol. one, half-title in each volume. First edition of Mary Shelley's collected edition of her husband's poetical works, the first complete collected edition, which established Shelley finally and irreversibly amongst the great poets of the English language. Pirate editions of Shelley's works had persuaded his father, Sir Timothy, that all hope of obscurity had passed, and Mary was allowed to prepare a proper edition provided there was only a minimum of biographical information. "Mary Shelley brought Shelley into the mainstream of the national culture. He was no longer the author of a notorious banned poem [Queen Mab] only obtainable from shops specializing in blasphemy, sedition and advice on birth control. He was the prophet of Prometheus Unbound, one of the most ambitious attempts ever made to uplift life by literature, and of other works such as the "Ode to the West Wind". The notes that Mary added are masterpieces of editing, adding so immeasurably to the reader's understanding that nobody would now consider printing Shelley's poems without them" (St Clair, p. 492).

Nice contemporary gift inscription: "Presented to Miss Harriett G. 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."

S.l., s.d., (1829 ou 1839). in-folio, titre-frontispice lithographié sur fond teinté, [2] ff. n. ch. de texte autographié (dédicace à Casimir de Mortemart, introduction), 62 magnifiques planches lithographiées sur fond teinté, légendées chacune d'un f. de texte également autographié, demi-basane bouteille à coins, dos lisse orné de filets et guirlandes dorés (reliure de l'époque). Restaurations aux charnières. Exemplaire lavé et replacé dans sa reliure. Unique édition de ce très bel album, au texte entièrement autographié et aux spectaculaires lithographies. Ancien polytechnicien, Louis-Hector de Galard de Brassac, prince de Béarn (1802-1871), fils de Pauline de Tourzel, avait commencé sa carrière en 1828 comme attaché militaire à l'état-major de l'armée russe, pour suivre, dans l'entourage de Casimir-Louis-Victurnien de Rochechouart-Mortemart (1787-1875, ambassadeur de France à Saint-Pétersbourg de 1828 à 1830), les opérations de l'armée du Tsar contre les Turcs pendant la campagne de 1828-1829, marquant l'intervention de la Russie dans l'affaire de la révolte hellénique. Il participa plus personnellement à la prise de Varna, et reçut pour ce fait des mains de Nicolas Ier la croix de Saint-Vladimir. Ce recueil de très belles planches, dessinées sur place, fut publié à petit nombre (peut-être 100 exemplaires, en tout cas hors commerce) à la suite de cette expérience, soit immédiatement après le retour de la mission (soit 1829), soit en 1839 (selon la date attribuée par la Gennadius Library d'Athènes).

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: 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.

His final appearance occurred at a banquet dinner in his honor at the landmark Delmonico's on Saturday the 18th where he famously stated that he would no longer denounce America, having restored his faith during this visit after his less successful first trip twenty years earlier. This extra-illustrated edition was compiled and bound by Curtis Guild in 1880 with an additional printed title-page stating that it is "Extended by the Insertion of the Author's Autograph, a Portrait of Mr. Macready, a Complete Set of the Onwhyn plates, Illustrations by Darley, Reinhart, Eytinge and Others, Collected from Various Sources in Europe and America, by Curtis Guild / Boston, 1880." In near fine condition. A stunning example. In 1867, Charles Dickens began his second American reading tour at Boston's Tremont Temple, where an enthusiastic audience delighted in some of his most notable work … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles Darwin
Henry Colburn, London, 1839. A fine copy of the first separate edition of Darwin's account of his travels aboard H.M.S. Beagle. [i-iv] [vii] [viii-xiv], 615pp. plus pp. 609-629 addenda. Two folding maps. One of the great travel books ever written due to the scientific importance of Darwin's observations during his five year voyage aboard the Beagle while circumnavigating the globe. Darwin's own eloquence in relating his diary entries to the reader also contributes to the book's uniqueness and readability. Although "On the Origin of Species" is regarded as Darwin's most important work, published 20 years after this account, many of the arguments for evolution as espoused in that book are derived from his observations noted in the volume offered, here. In fact, "Voyage of the Beagle" was always Darwin's favorite work due to its primacy and to the joy derived from his travel experiences. The separately printed first edition published by Henry Colburn offered, here, was originally volume three of a three volume plus appendix set also published by Colburn in 1939. That publication was edited by Captain Robert Fitzroy, the captain of the H.M.S. Adventure/Beagle expedition. The set's title: "The Narrative of the Voyages of H.M.Ships Adventure and Beagle." Public interest in volume three of the set, Darwin's account, quickly convinced Colburn to publish it separately later in 1839. A beautiful copy of this book in attractive marbled boards and 3/4 leather. Elaborately gilt-tooled black leather spine with "Darwin's Journal" and "London 1839." in gilt. Fine marbled edges with t.e.g. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fugitive Slaves] Ish, William K., and Joseph L. Hawling
Leesburg [VA], 1839. Oblong broadside, 4-1/4" x 8". The otherwise blank verso has a contemporary ink note ["Perry - Ish"] and a small ink blot. Very Good plus. Bob is "a bright mulatto, about 18 years old, well made, and about 5 feet 6 inches high-- no particular mark recollected, except of a ring-worm on one cheek." Charles, age about 30, "is about 6 feet high, with large full eyes, has a rather bashful countenance, and is quite slow in speech." Alfred "is a very stout well-set man, about 26 years of age, and very black, and 5 feet 7 or 8 inches high-- his lips are unusually thick-- speaks fast, and his manner, with persons not well acquainted with him, would be deemed saucy." A schedule of rewards-- $300 if all are caught out of Virginia, $150 if all are caught in Virginia-- is offered for their return. "Direct to either of the subscribers, at Middleburg Post Office, Loudoun County, Va." Dated and signed [in bold type] at Leesburg, June 10, 1839. Our offering is rendered especially interesting when compared with the two other known copies [University of Virginia and Library of Virginia]. Ours is from the same typesetting, but the others are captioned, "Three hundred dollars Reward." Our copy omits that caption by covering it before its printing [the covering may also have affected a portion of the capital 'B', the first letter in our copy]. Why this occurred is unknown. OCLC 20878571 [2- U VA, Lib. VA], as of October 2019, each with the caption "Three hundred dollars Reward." [Attributes: Signed Copy]
