1839. "...The greatest of the anti-slavery pamphlets; in all probability, the most crushing indictment of any institution ever written." Historian Dwight L. Dumond, in reference to American Slavery: As It Is. Here we offer the first edition of the most influential of the United States abolition sources and the first fusion of the anti-slavery movement with the women's rights movement: American Slavery: As It Is, by Theodore White Weld, published anonymously by The American Anti-Slavery Society, New York City, in 1839. This extremely rare volume is filled with narratives of victims and witnesses to the depraved institution of American slavery. It was wildly influential, providing vivid, documented accounts for the anti-slavery movement and even serving as a source work for Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin that was still 13 years away. With the modern acceptance of symbols of the confederacy as "heritage," this seminal volume is still relevant today. Recently very attractively rebound in full calf leather with acid-free black endpapers. Text block is age-toned and darkened on edge from perhaps once sitting too close to the fireplace, as the last page appears soot-darkened (please see pics.) Title page has pen-and-ink markings, "Mechanics Library" rubber stamp, and a Providence Public Library blindstamp. Binding is very tight and square, text pages are durable, bright, and crisp with a few minor edge tears and various foxing and light moisture stains throughout. A very readable copy in a wonderful rebinding! 224 pages; measures approximately 9 x 5.75-inches. This wond … [Click Below for Full Description]

This book can be restored. This collection of prints is intact. This book is very large (15-1/2" x 23") and heavy. Shipping price will reflect the size and weight.

CUSTINE La Russie en 1839. Paris, Amyot, 1843, complet en 4 volumes in-8, 2ff.-XXXIpp.-354pp. - 2ff.-416pp. - 2ff.-470pp. - 2ff.-544pp.- bien complet du tableau généalogique au tome 3. 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: https://photos.app.goo.gl/kpDyR5PWDpPtryQg6 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. Quiconque aura bien vu ce pays se t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles Dickens
London: Chapman and Hall, 1839. Condition: Very good. First printing, mixed state, octovo size, 707 pp. This was writer Charles Dickens' (1812-1870) third novel, widely anticipated and loved. He is often considered the greatest of the Victorian era novelists, blending drama and comedy into compelling stories. In this novel Dickens explores the social issues that his works are known for, such as, harsh boarding schools, the privilege of royal title and wealth, social customs of the day and the plight of the working class. 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. These caricatures add a visual element to the characters depicted by Dickens [n.b. above information from Wiki]. DESCRIPTION: Half red morocco leather over marbled paper boards, six compartments on spine, five with gilt, title and author in gilt to one compartment, embossed decorative and gilt borders to front and rear boards, all edges marbled, frontis of a young Charles Dickens (supplied), thirty-nine plates by Hablot K.

"Krettly était brigadier trompette dans les guides de Bonaparte. Il se trouvait donc souvent dans l'entourage de celui-ci. C'est ainsi qu'il raconte le voyage de Bonaparte à Suez. Il s'étend sur la campagne de Syrie, assiste à la prise de Jaffa et relate les massacres des prisonniers. Il participa au siège de Saint-Jean d'Acre et se distingua à la bataille du Mont-Thabor.

John Alston
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 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 most popular British catech … [Click Below for Full Description]

1839. "...The greatest of the anti-slavery pamphlets; in all probability, the most crushing indictment of any institution ever written." Historian Dwight L. Dumond, in reference to American Slavery: As It Is. Here we offer the first edition of the most influential of the United States abolition sources and the first fusion of the anti-slavery movement with the women's rights movement: American Slavery: As It Is, by Theodore White Weld, published anonymously by The American Anti-Slavery Society, New York City, in 1839. This extremely rare volume is filled with narratives of victims and witnesses to the depraved institution of American slavery. It was wildly influential, providing vivid, documented accounts for the anti-slavery movement and even serving as a source work for Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin that was still 13 years away. With the modern acceptance of symbols of the confederacy as "heritage," this seminal volume is still relevant today. Recently very attractively rebound in full calf leather with acid-free black endpapers. Text block is age-toned and darkened on edge from perhaps once sitting too close to the fireplace, as the last page appears soot-darkened (please see pics.) Title page has pen-and-ink markings, "Mechanics Library" rubber stamp, and a Providence Public Library blindstamp. Binding is very tight and square, text pages are durable, bright, and crisp with a few minor edge tears and various foxing and light moisture stains throughout.

Charles Darwin
The first separately published edition of Darwin's 'Journal'. The work had appeared slightly earlier in 1839 as Volume III of the 'Narrative of the surveying voyages of His Majesty's Ships Adventure and Beagle etc.' edited by Robert Fitzroy. Apart from a few preliminary leaves the text is actually the same impression as the Fitzroy issue. Darwin's diary records that 1500 copies were printed and Freeman suggests that these were used for the two issues of 1839 and a further issue in 1840.
