[Gift Book]
Philadelphia: Thomas T. Ash & Co., 1839. [136]pp., including blank leaves. Printed on rectos only. Quarto. Contemporary full green morocco, elaborately embossed, with a simple gilt rule on the boards and gilt title on the front board, grey silk endsheets. Hinges expertly repaired, corners lightly worn. Very minor foxing and soiling. Near fine. A remarkable deluxe quarto gift book produced when the genre flourished in the early 19th century (the paper is watermarked "1839"). The embossed pages are printed on various kinds of white paper, with some leaves on other colors of paper. Some of these have printed texts, while others are blank, evidently so the owner could inscribe sentiments of his or her own. The lithographed titlepage is on glazed paper, with the imprint of Thomas Ash, a prominent Philadelphia publisher who produced many volumes in the gift book genre. The volume includes four engravings after Benjamin West, drawn and engraved by H. Moses, printed on blue paper, and probably produced in England. Also includes ten embossed plates, including botanical plates of the rose, passion flower, tulip, amaranth, viola tricolor, a child in prayer, the stork, a bird's nest, and others, each accompanied by prose or poetry within an embossed frame. A fine example of the genre, remarkable both for the range and nature of the contents and for the magnificent American embossed binding. No copies located in OCLC, or in the extensive collections of the American Antiquarian Society.

Mary Shelley, 1839, Scarce Early Edition with Orig Frontispiece!
If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear! Here we offer a very early, 1839 fourth edition (second illustrated edition) of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's iconic classic horror story, Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus, published by Richard Bentley, London, the original publisher (as "Henry Colburn & Richard Bentley") of Shelley's final 1831 illustrated 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.) Oddly, the notes do not mention a missing vignet second title page ("The Day of My Departure at Length Arrived.") I have replaced the missing leaf with a tissue-protected facsimile, neatly and securely inserted, but unattached, printed with archival inks on acid-free bond. 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." "The Spirit of the Annuals" has a repaired binding. This copy … [Click Below for Full Description]

MENDELSSOHN, Felix 1809-1847
Leipsic: Breitkopf & Härtel [PNs 6022, 6023, 6024], [1839]. Folio. Unbound, as issued. Engraved. 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. Item #18717.

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.

[Dickens, Charles]
London: Charles Tilt, 1839. [Dickens, Charles] Cruikshank, George, The Loving Ballad of Lord Bateman. London, Charles Tilt, 1839. 11 plates. 12mo. Green flexible cloth with a Cruikshank illustration on the cover in gilt. Custom embroidered slipcase (newer), with hand-colored borders after Cruikshank and inset panel on upper and lower covers of embroidered material. Fine. Cohn 243. First edition, first issue, as stanza V line 2, reads "wine." Pagination in the center of the page (in the body of the book). The last page is No. 40. Eight pages of advertisements. "Clarke, Printers, Silver Street, Falcon Square" verso of title-page and at the foot of page 40. Fine. Notated music after Cruikshank's preface. Bookseller's tag of W.H. Dalton, 28 Cockspur St., Charing Cross. This poem was a personal favorite of Cruikshank's, and he was known to utilize a costume from table-covers, table-napkins, and antimacassars – or anything else he could lay his hands on to deliver his rousing rendition of Lord Bateman, the tune of which appears notated just before the first page of text. The authorship of this poetry by Dickens was confirmed by a letter 3 July 1839 in which Dickens expresses his desire "to remain unknown … for weighty reasons" (The Letters of Charles Dickens,Vol. I, Oxford Clarendon, House and Storey, eds.:1969.) Also, see Anne L. Haight's article in The Colophon New Graphic Series. Vol. I, March 1939, pp 39 – 66. DeVries, The Dickens Bibliographies, PTRY 28; PTRY 18.

LARCOMB, Thomas A., & Sir Richard GRIFFITH.
FIRST EDITION, first issue of the second published geological map and railway map of Ireland. Griffith's first geological map of Ireland, on a scale of 1 inch to 10 miles, was published in July 1838 to accompany the second report of the Irish Railway Commission. The publication of the present much larger map, on a scale of 1 inch to 4 miles, was delayed but it finally appeared in March 1839. The present copy is uncoloured geologically, but it appears that such copies are very rare and were only coloured to order. "It was remarkably detailed..." (DSB). The first railway map of Ireland was contained in the same second Report of the Irish Railway Commission (the first Report does not appear to have included a map), and in the same way was succeeded by the present map. "Title, left-hand top corner. Legend with 26 tablets in left-hand margin. Signed: 'Dublin, March 28th, 1839 Richard Griffith.' References, authorities and scales in lower margin. Below these is the MS. signature of Thos. A. Larcomb, Lieut. R.Eng. (in charge of the Trigonometrical Survey of Ireland at this time and responsible for the engraved basis of the present map and plate)... Coloured examples of this map have not been seen, but an uncoloured copy is in the Library of the Geological Survey, London" (Davis). A.G.

Temminck, L.F.
Platte grond der stad Rotterdam, vervaardigd volgens kadastrale plans, opgedragen aan Edel Achtbare Heeren Burgemeester en Wethouders dezer stad. Uitgegeven in 1839 door L.F. Temminck, in koper gegraveerd door D. Veelwaard en Zonen, gedrukt op vier bladen door Wed. Koning & Brugman. Deels later, deels in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 75 x 123 cm. Steeds weer bestond bij Rotterdamse stadsbestuurders behoefte aan een grootschalige betrouwbare kaart waarop ook alle percelen zijn aangeduid. In 1827 wordt door de fabrieksmeesters, die de directie voeren over de Fabricage, de technische dienst van de stad, bij Burgemeesters en Wethouders aangedrongen op het laten vervaardigen van een plattegrond van de gemeente. Pas twaalf jaar later wordt deze wens vervuld door Leonardus Temminck, controleur en bewaarder van het kadaster van Rotterdam. Aan het stadsbestuur worden vijf gekleurde en vijf ongekleurde exemplaren geleverd. Sinds de verschijning van de vorige kaart (in 1800) is het gebied van de gemeente behoorlijk uitgebreid. De gemeente Cool is ingelijfd, West-Blommersdijk en Oost-Blommerswijk en Rubroek staan nu voor het eerst op een plattegrond. Door de zeer dichte bebouwing van de binnenstad is het Temminck, door het ontbreken van gegeven daarover, niet overal mogelijk geweest de onbebouwde gedeeltes van de percelen weer te geven, maar slechts de kadastrale perceelgrenzen. Het grondgebruik buiten de singels is op de kaart wel mooi aangeduid. Met name van de tuinaanleg wordt een prachtig beeld gegeven. Een groot aantal straten, stegen en wateren, openbare gebouwen, be … [Click Below for Full Description]

Greene, John P.
Printed by R.P. Broooks, Cincinnati. 43pp. Original plain blue wrappers; wrappers detached. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase. First edition, second issue. In 1838, Missouri governor Lilburn Boggs ordered: "The Mormons must be treated as enemies, and must be exterminated or driven from the State, if necessary." The author John Portineus Greene (a brother-in-law of Brigham Young) was appointed to gather documentary evidence of the ensuing repression, some of which he witnessed personally, and which he published circa July 1839. "This gives the story of the expulsion from the Mormon point of view. The expulsion created such a wave of condemnation against the Governor and authorities of the state of Missouri that two years later the General Assembly of the state published DOCUMENT CONTAINING THE CORRESPONDENCE, ORDERS, &c. IN RELATION TO THE DISTURBANCES WITH THE MORMONS. Greene's FACTS gives much material from the rare Assembly Document of 1841. Both are essential to the history of the Church" - Streeter. This second state is distinguished by a title page with a different setting of type, omitting "or Latter Day Saints" from the title, and by having the plain blue wrappers rather than printed wrappers. There is also a difference in the signature markings; here page 25 is marked D, while in the first state it is marked C, although they are otherwise clearly the same setting of type. This copy descended through the family of the author. Only three copies of either issue have been traced at auction since 1968. This is the first copy this firm has handled. CRAWLEY 55.

Cherubini, Francesco
Milano, dall’Imp. Regia Stamperia, 1839-1856, Edizione originale, rimane ancora oggi il miglior vocabolario del dialetto milanese mai composto. Cherubini morì durante la sua pubblicazione, che fu portata avanti dapprima da G. Villa e poi terminata da G.B. De Capitani. Dal ’39 al ’41 uscirono i primi tre volumi; si dovette aspettare il ’43 per un voluminoso quarto volume che comprende, con numerazione a sé, l’allegato «Giunte e correzioni», e reca infine la lista degli associati. Il quinto volume vide la luce nel 1856: ospita nelle pagine introduttive i «Cenni biografici intorno all’abate Giuseppe Villa» del De Capitani, le voci di «Supplimento» e due dissertazioni, da p. 241 «Nozioni filologiche intorno al dialetto milanese», da p. 287 «Saggio d’osservazioni sull’Idioma brianzuolo, suddialetto del milanese». Cfr. Isella, Bibliografia della letteratura in lingua milanese, p. 180. Bell’esemplare, completo dei piatti anteriore e posteriore della copertina originale in tutti i volumi (manca il piatto post. solo al volume di ‘Supplimento’), oltre che di tutte le carte non numerate (abbreviazioni, errata, indici, lista associati, e la carta bianca finale del vol.

Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Felix, Komponist (1809-1847)
Leipzig, 18. III, 1839. 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. An das Komitee des Niederrheinischen Musikfestivals in Düsseldorf, dessen Direktor Mendelssohn damals war, mit einer Empfehlung von Stücken: "[...] Gegen den Marsch und Chor aus den Ruinen von Athen, den Sie zum zweiten Tage hinzufügen wollen, habe ich natürlich nichts einzuwenden; ich würde vorschlagen das Stück unmittelbar nach der Sinfonia eroica zu setzen, was sich gewiß gut ausnehmen würde. Eine Cantate von Bach hingegen wüßte ich für den so ausgestatteten zweiten Tag nicht mehr vorzuschlagen; ich kenne keine die der Dauer, und noch mehr dem Styl nach hineinpaßte; müßte noch ein Stück gewählt werden so würde ich vielleicht den Chor von Haydn 'Des Staubes eitle Sorgen' vorschlagen, aber es scheint mir ohne dies genug. 1833 bei Ihnen und 1834 in Aachen war das Repertoire des 2ten Tages kürzer, als dies; voriges Jahr in Cöln wenigstens nicht länger und so meine ich: 1) Symph. eroica, Marsch u. Chor von Beeth., eine Hymne von Spohr. 2) Ouvert. u. Psalm - wären ein ganz genügendes Programm [...]". - Bl. 2 mit kleinem Ausschnitt durch Siegelbruch; etwas gebräunt.

Audubon, John James
Edinburgh, 1839. Five volumes. A few in-text illustrations. Half title in each volume. Large, thick octavos. Modern buckram, printed paper labels. Bookplate on front pastedowns. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Some light foxing, primarily to first and last few leaves. Tear in half title of second volume, repaired with tape. Very good. This is Audubon's text, designed to accompany the elephant folio edition of THE BIRDS OF AMERICA, giving sketches of the birds described therein. Of great interest are Audubon's accounts of his travels and adventures in the American hinterland, scattered through the volumes as part of the bird descriptions and as separate anecdotes. Includes accounts of his experiences in the Florida Keys, along the Mississippi, and in Louisiana and Kentucky in the 1820s and '30s. Audubon published the text separately from the double elephant folio plates in order to avoid a stricture of the British Copyright Act of 1709 which would have required him to deposit a set of the plates with each of nine depository libraries in the United Kingdom. The publication date on the titlepage of the fifth volume is incorrectly printed as "1849." One of the classic texts of American natural history and travel. HOWES A389, "aa." MEISEL III, p.406.
