Robinson, J.W. and J.R.
Printed by Johnston & Edwards, 1839. First Edition. Hardcover. A Native American village, Pumpkintown (a corruption of "Potemkin town") is no longer in existence, but was originally located in McMinn County, Tennessee near present day Athens. 136 p. with printed tables throughout. 16mo. Original printed roan-backed boards, with a later leather spine. The contents are browned, with some pencil notations to the prefatory and concluding leaves. Partial separation of the rear pastedown from the rear board; detachment is not a concern. Though the front hinge is cracked, the binding is still quite sound. The boards are worn and soiled, with some shallow loss at the tips and occasional minor scuffing. However, the titles on the front and the printer's advertisement on the verso are still legible. Scarce, OCLC locates only five copies. Good. [Attributes: First Edition]

First edition, first issue of the account of the most famous voyage in the history biological science. Volume III is the first issue of Darwin's Journal, his first published book, containing the observations and fieldwork that would form the basis for On the Origin of Species. "The five years of the voyage were the most important event in Darwin's intellectual life and in the history of biological science. Darwin sailed with no formal scientific training. He returned a hard-headed man of science, knowing the importance of evidence, almost convinced that species had not always been as they were since the creation but had undergone change. (DSB III, 566). Darwin's Journal, "is one of the most interesting records of natural history exploration ever written and is one of the most important, for it was on this voyage that Darwin prepared for his lifework, ultimately leading to The Origin of Species" (Hill 104-5).

Tappan, Lewis, & H. B. Stanton, et al.
New York: American Anti-Slavery Society, 1839. Small folio broadsheet, approx. 11¾" x 9½". Generally fine. LCP/HSP Afro-Americana Catalogue 5043, noting publication 1835-June 1839. Human Rights is very rare. Only the Clements copy in OCLC. Among members of the committee which created this fund-raising resolution are John Greenleaf Whittier and Rhode Island reformer Thomas Wilson Dorr (their names appear in the text of the broadside. ) Lewis Tappan was one of the founders of the American Anti-Slavery Society, and in 1839 his house was wrecked by a mob. In 1839-41 he "was the outstanding member of the committee which undertook to secure the freedom of the Amistad captives (see DAB). This fund-raising letter extensively describes the needs and efforts of the Society. In the list of 8 desiderada, Number 4 reads: "Women are efficient and liberal helpers. We have received large contributions from several noble female societies." Dorr's participation is important for its affect upon his contribution to the 1841 Proposed Constitution of the State of Rhode Island's bill of rights, that "went much further than a simple repetition of traditional freedoms...[which] also contained a 'personal liberty clause' that guaranteed the right of trial by jury for fugitive slaves...Here was evident the hand of Dorr, former Rhode Island delegate to the national convention of the American Anti-Slavery Society."--Conley, Democracy in Decline, p. 310.

LOUIS, P. Ch. A.; SHATTUCK, G. C. (trans.)
Boston: Charles C. Little and James Brown, 1839. Library of Practical Medicine, Massachusetts Medical Society Vol. X. xxiii, 374 p. 24 cm. Brown cloth hardcover with blank impressing. Spine and corners repaired. Bookplate for Victor Robinson on rear pastedown. Bookplates removed from front endpapers. Endpapers darkened. Occasional thumbing. Pierre Louis (1787-1872), French statistician and physician, is best known for an approach to medicine known as the "numerical system." Louis has been credited with establishing medicine as an exact science by demonstrating the value of the statistical method in diagnostics and therapeutics. For example, by systematically testing the effectiveness of therapeutic blood-letting, Louis demonstrated that the timing and quantity of bloodletting had no impact on the course or mortality of the diseases for which it was used. Little wonder that this report on an 1828 yellow fever epidemic contains so much observation and description; he was radically in favour of empirical research, not theory-based medicine. Very Good.

New York: J. M. Elliott, 1839. First Edition. Very good. [ca. 1839]. Broadside, 12 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches. Woodcut illustration in upper portion, text surrounded by ornamental border. Light, even tanning, a bit lighter at the edges where covered by an earlier frame. Very good. Early and scarce promotional broadside for Chang and Eng, the original Siamese Twins, featuring a handsome woodcut portrait of the pair in dress and scenery evoking their native home.Chang and Eng were born in Siam (present-day Thailand) in 1811, joined at the sternum. They were discovered at a young age by a British merchant who spotted them swimming and, after several years, convinced their mother to allow him to hire them for a five-year tour overseas. The brothers left with the merchant and an American sea captain in 1829, never to see Siam or their mother again.Arriving in the U.S. at the age of 17, Chang and Eng entered into a life-long career of exhibition and performance. Developing stage routines involving song, dance, and acrobatics, the brothers toured in the U.S. with a 1860 residency at P. T. Barnums American Museum and abroad for decades, becoming an international cultural phenomenon. After considerable early financial success, the pair bought a large property in North Carolina, adopted the surname, Bunker, married a pair of sisters, and, between the four of them, raised 21 children.The broadside includes an early Victorian appeal to ladies and gentlemen, as the promoters of the Siamese Twins were eager to assure visitors especially women that their sensibilities would not be shocked … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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.

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. With frontispieces and additional illustrated title pages to each volume.

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.

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.

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.
