Ballantyne, James Robert
Edinburgh: sold by J. Madden and Co., C. Smith, and at the Military Academy, 1839. First edition. 4to, 29 x 23 cm; pp.iv, 38; 1 lithographic plate. Text with printed devanagari characters. Contemporary cloth; corners a bit bumped, a handful of inoffensive marks to lower board; partly unopened. An early grammar of Braj Bhasha, the principal dialect of Western Hindi spoken in the Braj region; intended for the use of the students at the East India Company's College at Haileybury, and to expose them to Devanagari rather than nasta'liq characters. It is only an outline grammar, meant to introduce the student to a more comprehensive text, such as Shakespear's A grammar of the Hindustani language (3rd edition, London, 1826). Ballantyne draws his examples from the forms of the language found in the Prem-sagar and "other standard works of Hindi literature". The Prem-sagar ("The Ocean of Love") was composed between 1804 and 1810 by Lalluji Lal, a scholar recruited to the College of Fort William by John Borthwick Gilchrist. It was written in a Sanskritized and deliberately 'de-Persianized' form of the language to produce a recognizably 'Hindu style' of Urdu. The lithographic plate depicts the modifications necessary to Devanagari characters to produce sounds found only in Arabic and Persian. James Robert Ballantyne taught at the Scottish Naval and Military Academy before moving to India in 1845 to become Superintendent of the Sanskrit College at Benares. This had been established in 1791 to foster Hindu culture, a counterpoint to the Calcutta Madrasa which, since 1780, had ta … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARRYAT, Capt.
London: Longman, Orme, Brown, Green, & Longmans, 1839. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good +. First and second series. 6 vols.: 321; 304; 319; 293; 311; 362 p. 20 cm. Two fold-out maps. Half black cloth with marbled boards. Gilt trim and 5 raised bands on spines. Bindings signed by Zaehnsdorf, London, England. Marbled endpapers match paper on boards. Top edges gilt. Very light wear to extremities. Small tear in fold-out map in Vol. I Pt. 2. Labels of former owner on front pages. Slight foxing. By the time Frederick Marryat toured the United States and Canada in 1837-38, he had already attained the status of famous novelist in Britain. He published this diary of travels shortly after his return to England. His comments on the Americans and their institutions are often not complimentary: "At five o'clock we arrived at Syracuse. I do detest these old names vamped up. Why do not the Americans take the Indian names? They need not be so very scrupulous about it; they have robbed the Indians of everything else" (Vol. I Pt. 1 p. 154). The first fold-out map (Vol. I Pt. 2) shows "Aboriginal America" with the various native tribes in their respective geographical areas. Second fold-out map (Vol. II Pt. 2) shows central Florida as the seat of hostilities between the Seminoles and the United States. Binding by Joseph Zaehnsdorf (1816-1886), originally from Austria-Hungary, later owner of a bindery in London.

Colborne, John; Australia; New South Wales; Canada; Law; Convicts]
Armour and Ramsay, Montreal, 1839. Two volume set of the complete transcripts of the trials for high treason of prisoners taken following the second rebellion in Lower Canada of 1838, 58 of whom were ultimately transported to the penal colony at Botany Bay, NSW. French Canadian militants led a failed rebellion against the British Crown after years of tension between the colony's English speaking minority and the French speaking majority. The British Cabinet reacted swiftly in Canada by suspending the constitution, dissolving the Legislative Assembly, and putting in place a Special Council headed by three governors including Sir John Colborne. Colborne changed the status of the trials from civilian to courts martial, ensuring that the prisoners would be found guilty of insurrection against the government, rather than of lesser crimes. The volumes contain the complete transcripts of the trials for high treason of the one hundred and eight prisoners. These include Joseph Narcisse Cardinal, Charles Huot, Guillaume Levesque, Joseph Robert, J.B.H. Brian, Charles Hindelang, Pierre Remi Narbonne, James Perrigo, Louis Bourdon, Charles Guillaume Bouc, Benjamin Mott, and others. Some of the prisoners were executed, while others were imprisoned, banished or freed on bond, and 58 were transported to NSW. Those transported to Australia sailed on the 'HMS Buffalo' and ended up at Longbottom on the Parramatta River, where they were isolated from other convicts, making bricks for the construction of present day Parramatta Road in Sydney. After serving their sentences the majority wanted to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ambroise Dupont, Éditeur (Imprimerie de A. Éverat et Comp. ), 1839. Edizione originale. Leggero e occasionale foxing; discreta firma d'appartenenza coeva alla copertina del vol. I; per il resto straordinari esemplari a in barbe (222 x 140 mm), freschi e puliti, completi di tre dei quattro piatti delle copertine originali. Condizione molto rara. La composizione del romanzo, iniziata nel novembre del 1838, fu estremamente rapida e durò solo sette settimane: le oltre cinquecento pagine della Chartreuse furono consegnate all'editore il 26 dicembre del 1838. Il 17 marzo 1839, domenica, il quotidiano parigino «Le constitutionel» annunciò l'imminente uscita della Chartreuse de Parme, pubblicando, come anticipazione, la «Scène militaire» relativa all'episodio di Waterloo (pp. 5-6). Di lì a poche settimane, nel mese di aprile, venne stampata, sempre a Parigi, l'editio princeps dell'opera. L'accoglienza fu inizialmente piuttosto tiepida, al punto che Balzac, sulla «Revue parisienne» da lui diretta, arrivò a scrivere: «depuis dix mois que cette oeuvre surprenante a été publiée, il n'y [a] pas un seul journaliste qui l'ait ni lue, ni comprise, ni étudiée, qui l'ait annoncée, analysée et louée, qui même y ait fait allusion». Balzac elogiò senza riserve il romanzo; nonostante il cattivo carattere, subì subito il fascino di questa Chartreuse: M. Beyle a fait un livre où le sublime éclate de chapitre en chapitre [...] à une troisième lecture, lente et réfléchie, je trouve cette oeuvre extraordinaire. Naturalmente, per Balzac solo i romanzi di Balzac non necessitavano di interventi o correz … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fisher Son and Co, 1839. Collated, complete with forty five plates and vignette title page and frontispiece to 'Series One' , and forty seven plates to 'Series Two' with a vignette title page, frontispiece, and two page map of the Mediterranean and Turkish Empire. Each plate is protected with a tissue guard. A very scarce copy in the publisher's original cloth binding. This set is a first edition copy undated as called for. Thomas Allom was an English architect, artist, and topographical illustrator renowned as one of the founding members of what later became the 'Royal Institute of British Architects'. Whilst he worked extensively as an architect in London (notably designing the Church of St Peter's and parts of the Ladbroke Estate in Notting Hill) Allom is chiefly known for his numerous topographical works, which were often used to illustrate books on travel. These works largely came from Allom's travel from the 1820s, where travelled through the UK and mainland Europe to arrive in Istanbul, Turkey in 1834. It was here that he produced hundreds of drawings recounting his journeys through Anatolia, Syria and Palestine that were published within this text: 'Constantinople and the Scenery of the Seven Churches of Asia Minor' This two volume set contains an historical account of Constantinople and descriptions of the plates by the Rev.

Montreal: Armour and Ramsay, 1839. First edition. Hardcover. Very good condition. Two volume set of the complete transcripts of the trials for high treason of prisoners taken following the second rebellion in Lower Canada of 1838, 58 of whom were ultimately transported to the penal colony at Botany Bay, NSW.French Canadian militants led a failed rebellion against the British Crown after years of tension between the colony's English speaking minority and the French speaking majority.The British Cabinet reacted swiftly in Canada by suspending the constitution, dissolving the Legislative Assembly, and putting in place a Special Council headed by three governors including Sir John Colborne. Colborne changed the status of the trials from civilian to courts martial, ensuring that the prisoners would be found guilty of insurrection against the government, rather than of lesser crimes.The volumes contain the complete transcripts of the trials for high treason of the one hundred and eight prisoners. These include Joseph Narcisse Cardinal, Charles Huot, Guillaume Levesque, Joseph Robert, J.B.H. Brian, Charles Hindelang, Pierre Remi Narbonne, James Perrigo, Louis Bourdon, Charles Guillaume Bouc, Benjamin Mott, and others.Some of the prisoners were executed, while others were imprisoned, banished or freed on bond, and 58 were transported to NSW. Those transported to Australia sailed on the 'HMS Buffalo' and ended up at Longbottom on the Parramatta River, where they were isolated from other convicts, making bricks for the construction of present day Parramatta Road in Sydney.

Mary Shelley, 1839, Scarce Early Edition with Orig Frontispiece!
Truly excellent condition through-and-through with just a bit of glue peel at the front gutter (please see pic) and a bit of foxing on the frontis page and title page. Remarkably tight and square binding; very clean, bright and crisp text and frontispiece. 365 pages in all. The book measures 6 3/4 x 4 3/8 x 1-inches. If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear! Here we offer a very early, 1839 third edition of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's iconic classic horror story, Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus, published by Richard Bentley, London, one of the two original publishers of Shelley's final 1831 revision of her 1818 work. This edition includes the original first visual representation of the monster, a frontispiece steel engraving by Theodore von Holst depicting the creature coming to life. This hugely important novel introduced the 19th Century to the themes of reckless industrialization, the struggle between the religious and scientific realms, and even far fore-visioned the psychological and cognitive revelations that were still more than a century away. The book was once a purchase from Bauman Rare Books, and it comes with Bauman's original description of the copy and notes on the edition (please see last pic.) Also included in the auction is an 1831 copy of "The Spirit of the Annuals," a 467-page palm-sized (5.5 x 3.5-inch) literary collection including the supernatural short story, "Transformation" by Mrs. Shelley, who is referred to therein as "...the author of Frankenstein."

DICKENS, Charles.
London: Chapman and Hall, 1839. London: Chapman and Hall,, 1839. With Illustrations by Phiz. Octavo (212 x 131 mm). Contemporary quarter calf, rebacked, red morocco label, marbled paper sides, brown endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 39 engraved plates by Phiz, extra-illustrated with 24 additional plates. Contemporary ownership signature to front free endpaper. Bound without half-title. Some plates foxed and toned, paper fault to pp. 457 and 575 not affecting text, tape repairs to tears on p. 621. A good copy. First edition in book-form (following publication in parts from April 1838 to October 1839), first issue with "visiter" on p. 123 and "latter" on p. 160. Dickens had been catapulted to fame with the success of The Pickwick Papers, and to secure his next novel Chapman and Hall offered Dickens £150 a part, a sum ten times greater than that which he had received for Pickwick. Dickens's second full-length novel also met with great public enthusiasm, which has continued unabated: Dickens's biographer Ackroyd stated that the novel "has some title to being the funniest novel Dickens ever wrote; it is perhaps the funniest novel in the English language" (Peter Ackroyd, Dickens, pp. 262). This copy has some old notes and clippings on Dickens loosely inserted.

London: Edward Moxon, 1839. First edition thus. First collected edition. In four volumes complete. "This edition of Mrs. Shelley's was supposed, when published, to be definitive. That she did not edit one earlier was due to the promised exacted by Sir Timothy Shelley that she would not try to bring his son's name into public notice during his own lifetime. The present edition was published with Sir Timothy's permission on condition that it should contain no memoir of the poet, a condition which was partially overcome by the addition of copious notes." Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792 - 1822) was one of the major English Romantic poets and is critically regarded as among the finest lyric poets in the English language. Shelley was famous for his association with John Keats and Lord Byron.

Collated, complete with forty five plates and vignette title page and frontispiece to 'Series One' , and forty seven plates to 'Series Two' with a vignette title page, frontispiece, and two page map of the Mediterranean and Turkish Empire. Each plate is protected with a tissue guard. A very scarce copy in the publisher's original cloth binding. This set is undated, dated using Copac, and a presumed first edition copy. Thomas Allom was an English architect, artist, and topographical illustrator renowned as one of the founding members of what later became the 'Royal Institute of British Architects'. Whilst he worked extensively as an architect in London (notably designing the Church of St Peter's and parts of the Ladbroke Estate in Notting Hill) Allom is chiefly known for his numerous topographical works, which were often used to illustrate books on travel. These works largely came from Allom's travel from the 1820s, where travelled through the UK and mainland Europe to arrive in Istanbul, Turkey in 1834. It was here that he produced hundreds of drawings recounting his journeys through Anatolia, Syria and Palestine that were published within this text: 'Constantinople and the Scenery of the Seven Churches of Asia Minor' This two volume set contains an historical account of Constantinople and descriptions of the plates by the Rev. Robert Walsh, an Irish clergyman, historian, writer and physician. Walsh worked as the chaplain to the British Embassy in Constantinople in 1820, and published several works on the city, including 'Residence at Constantinople … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stendhal (ps. di Henri Beyle)]
Paris, Ambroise Dupont, Éditeur (Imprimerie de A. Éverat et Comp. ), 1839, Edizione originale. Leggero e occasionale foxing; discreta firma d’appartenenza coeva alla copertina del vol. I; per il resto straordinari esemplari a in barbe (222 x 140 mm), freschi e puliti, completi di tre dei quattro piatti delle copertine originali. Condizione molto rara. La composizione del romanzo, iniziata nel novembre del 1838, fu estremamente rapida e durò solo sette settimane: le oltre cinquecento pagine della Chartreuse furono consegnate all’editore il 26 dicembre del 1838. Il 17 marzo 1839, domenica, il quotidiano parigino «Le constitutionel» annunciò l’imminente uscita della Chartreuse de Parme, pubblicando, come anticipazione, la «Scène militaire» relativa all’episodio di Waterloo (pp. 5-6). Di lì a poche settimane, nel mese di aprile, venne stampata, sempre a Parigi, l’editio princeps dell’opera. L’accoglienza fu inizialmente piuttosto tiepida, al punto che Balzac, sulla «Revue parisienne» da lui diretta, arrivò a scrivere: «depuis dix mois que cette oeuvre surprenante a été publiée, il n’y [a] pas un seul journaliste qui l’ait ni lue, ni comprise, ni étudiée, qui l’ait annoncée, analysée et louée, qui même y ait fait allusion». Balzac elogiò senza riserve il romanzo; nonostante il cattivo carattere, subì subito il fascino di questa Chartreuse: M. Beyle a fait un livre où le sublime éclate de chapitre en chapitre [.] à une troisième lecture, lente et réfléchie, je trouve cette oeuvre extraordinaire. Naturalmente, per Balzac solo i romanzi di Balzac non necessitavano di interventi o c … [Click Below for Full Description]

Badger, George Percy, and Hanna al-Jawali, translators]
[Malta]: [English Church Mission Society], [1839]. 12mo (16.2 x 10.5 cm); pp. 27, [1, blank]; printed Arabic text. Original printed wrappers. A short Arabic treatise on Christianity, comprising various lists of doctrinal principle, the attributes of sincere belief, the heart of a believer, all keyed to passages from Scripture, and a short selection of suitable prayers. Despite its title, this is not a translation of Gossner's popular tract, The Heart of Man, though the text may well be a translation into Arabic from English missionary tracts. Roper does identify it as a translation, though he was unable to examine a copy. George Percy Badger (1815–1888) was raised in Malta where his father served in the British Army. He studied Arabic there, and in Beirut, before returning to England to become ordained as an Anglican priest in 1842. The Archbishop of Canterbury appointed him as delegate to the Christians of the Church of the East in Mesopotamia and Kurdistan. He is best known for his A History of the Imaums and Sayyids of Oman (1871). Roper 88. We locate no copies.
