Clement C. Moore
This listing is for a very early printing of "A Visit From St. Nicholas," dated 1839. First edition, thus. It is one of the earliest complete and unabridged printings of the poem in book form, including the old English and Dutch parlance (thro', Dunder, Blixen, etc.). Rare to find today, especially in nice condition, the book is a collection of prose and poetry used in schools for speech exercises. While anthologies were instrumental in putting the poem in front of mature audiences, elocution books introduced it to children and was a strong contributor to the growing awareness of the poem. Still obscure at the time, the poem was published here anonymously and called "Christmas Times," one of several alternate titles used in very early printings. It is interesting to note that the editor actually recognized St. Nicholas as "Santa Claus" via a footnote to the poem--pretty amazing since it would be many years before the Dutch, German, and English personages would be combined to form the iconic American Santa Claus. The book measures 4.5 x 7.5 inches. Construction is in-board leather binding with 504 pages. At 180 years old, it is in very good condition overall. The covers shows moderate wear considering age. The leather has become stiff with a bit of bowing at the outer corners. The pages have foxing throughout, some areas more than others, and there are a few uneven pages at the end. Binding is tight. Still a handsome book that displays well. "A Visit From St. Nicholas" is found on page 359. On consignment from a lifelong Christmas collector. Shipped Priority/Insured.

[Laurence Dermott]
[Laurence Dermott], 1839 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce copy of Laurence Dermott's important freemason work 'Ahiman Rezon', here with added lectures. A scarce work. This work is a constitution for the Ancient Grand Lodge of England, which was formed in 1751. This formation brought together the lodges and Masons who believed themselves to be of an older Masonic tradition, moving away and not allying themselves with the 1717 Moderns Grand Lodge. The Ancient Grand Lodge of England was dissolved in 1813. The work was written against the Modern Freemasons, at a time when the Ancients wanted to retain Freemasonry at its purist holy form, and the Modernists wanted to change Masonry and wished to remove the old ways. The title refers to the biblical Ahiman and Rezon, likening the Ancients to Ahiman, and the Rezon also as the rivals to the Modernist movement. This edition with added lectures, and a Masonic ritual. Written by Laurence Dermott, an Irish Freemason who was the Worshipful Master of Lodge No. 26 in Dublin, and the Grand Secretary of the Ancient Grand Lodge of England. Dermott is best known for this work, which was originally published in 1756. Lodge of Harmony Library label to the front pastedown. Lodge of Harmony library label to the tail of the spine. Condition: In the original quarter cloth binding with paper to the boards. Externally, generally smart. Minor marks to the boards and spine. Small amount of loss of paper to the rear board.

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.

[Paris]: [1839]. 117 x 73 + wide margins, sheet size 260 x 168 mm. Printed on wove paper. A fine impression. Based on a bust by Dantan executed in 1838 depicting Musard conducting a quadrille at a "Bal de l'Opéra." Sorel 199. Dantan 124. "After the July Revolution [Musard] returned to France and conducted at masked balls at the Théâtre des Variétés. He then became artistic director of a series of popular open-air concerts and dances on the Champs-Elysées, which marked the beginning of the Concerts-Musard; these were an immediate and enormous success... He also conducted for masked balls at the Salle Ventadour and the Opéra-Comique, and eventually in 1835 and 1836 for the balls at the Opéra itself... He continued to be a popular conductor until 1845. In France he was considered the doyen of dance composers and popular conductors until 1852." Gérard Streletski, Gustave Chouquet and David Charltonin Grove Music Online. Dantan's caricatures of writers, artists, and particularly musicians are highly regarded. He is said to be the inventor of the "sculptural caricature." Wikipedia. Item #29818.

Charles Elzéar Mondelet (1801-1876) Avocat et juge canadien ; il participe activement à la vie politique de son pays et fonde l'Argus, journal "électorique" qui parut à Montréal, de 1826 à 1828. Il aida son frère Dominique à se faire élire à l'Assemblée canadienne. Il publia "Letters on elementary and practical éducation", qui influença beaucoup la rédaction du projet de loi sur l'éducation.
Correspondance de 3 lettres de Charles Mondelet à Alexandre Vattemare, qui s'était rendu aux Etats-Unis puis au Canada en 1839, où il fut à l'origine de la création de la première grande bibliothèque publique américaine, la Boston Public Library (Vattemare se créa un vaste réseau de relations à travers l'Amérique du Nord et l'Europe pour développer son système d'échange international de livres). "Je vous envoie, suivant ma promesse, les Nos du Times et de l'Aurore, dans lesquels vous trouverez ce que j'ai bien imparfaitement dit de vous et de votre sublime mission. Je regrette que l'Aurore ait omis d'intercaler, suivant la note que j'avais donnée, l'extrait de votre Mémoire au Congrès des Etats-Unis publié dans la Gazette de Montréal ; c'est une gaucherie de l'imprimeur. Permettez que celui qui a fait en petit ce que vous accomplissez sur une si grande échelle, vous prie de jeter un coup d'oeil sur les deux premières lettres publiées en anglais pour le Times. La 1ère a été traduite et reproduite par l'Aurore. Si vous pouvez me laisser jusqu'à demain le Weekly Pilot de Baltimore, vous m'obligerez ; Mme Mondelet qui prend un intérêt bien vif à tout ce qui se rattache à votre noble mission, désire parcourir les discours que renferme ce papier [...]". Il lui annonce l'heureux succès de son action. "Après beaucoup de trouble, par démarches, et beaucoup d'efforts de Guy, McCord & moi-même, & mon frère dans le Conseil, l'ordonnance vient de passer ; il y a eu des amendements, la plupart avantageux.

Part of the Louisiana Purchase, Iowa Territory, which included parts of present-day Minnesota and the Dakotas, was created in 1838. It became a state in 1846. The 1839 volume of statutes is significant because it was the first law book, and second book of any kind, printed in Iowa. Known as "The Old Blue Book," its influence extended beyond Iowa. According to Eberstadt, it was "for many years the law of all the country west of the Rocky Mountains between the forty-second and forty-ninth parallels of latitude."

Phinney, 1833. The Bible itself is important as well- the publishers are legendary- The Phinney brothers, Henry and Elihu, carried on the business their father, Elihu Phinney, had started in 1795; the elder Phinney had established a press, bookshop, and newspaper after resettling in Cooperstown from Connecticut. James Fenimore Cooper, a delegate to the 1816 convention that formed the American Bible Society, learned to set type in his shop for fun (Hills, 69). The younger Phinneys, however, were not to be restricted to one shop: They sold their stock (which consisted of their own publications together with books brought in from Philadelphia and New York) from large travelling wagons and established a "bookboat" on the Erie Canal that enabled them to reach a larger portion of western New York. ---------- This is a truly unique piece of history....an early Cooperstown King James Version Bible, The same publisher and edition Used by LDS leader Joseph Smith to help translate the Book of Mormon!

Clement C. Moore
This listing is for a very early printing of "A Visit From St. Nicholas," dated 1839. First edition, thus. It is one of the earliest complete and unabridged printings of the poem in book form, including the old English and Dutch parlance (thro', Dunder, Blixen, etc.). Rare to find today, especially in nice condition, the book is a collection of prose and poetry used in schools for speech exercises. While anthologies were instrumental in putting the poem in front of mature audiences, elocution books introduced it to children and was a strong contributor to the growing awareness of the poem. Still obscure at the time, the poem was published here anonymously and called "Christmas Times," one of several alternate titles used in very early printings. It is interesting to note that the editor actually recognized St. Nicholas as "Santa Claus" via a footnote to the poem--pretty amazing since it would be many years before the Dutch, German, and English personages would be combined to form the iconic American Santa Claus. The book measures 4.5 x 7.5 inches. Construction is in-board leather binding with 504 pages. At 180 years old, it is in very good condition overall. The covers shows moderate wear considering age. The leather has become stiff with a bit of bowing at the outer corners. The pages have foxing throughout, some areas more than others, and there are a few uneven pages at the end. Binding is tight. Still a handsome book that displays well. "A Visit From St. Nicholas" is found on page 359. On consignment from a lifelong Christmas collector. Shipped Priority/Insured.

1839. Folio (378 × 237 mm), a bifolium (centrefold blank, last page docketed); the first page, with a small hand-coloured diagram of the block (showing the orientation of the land), and a paper-over-wax impressed seal, is signed by George Gawler as Resident Commissioner, 27 August 1839. Three horizontal creases (when the document is folded thus, the docketed portion of the last page becomes visible on one of the exposed panels); short splits to the open ends of two creases expertly sealed; trifling signs of wear; the exposed panels of the folded document are a little marked and discoloured; overall, the document is in very good condition. The grant is for 'Eighty acres numbered 161 in the Provincial Survey', purchased by 'Henry Giles of Adelaide | Merchant' for the sum of £80. Henry Giles (1812-1892) was born at 'Farrington-Gurney, Somerset, England and came to South Australia on the ship 'Buffalo' in 1836, listed as a Labourer. He had been recommended for government service, particularly in agriculture. He firstly settled at the Tiers (near present-day Crafers) and then moved to the Mount Pleasant district, where he first bought land in 1842' (online history of Mt Pleasant). George Gawler (1795-1869) was South Australia's second governor. 'Disputes between the first governor, Captain (Sir) John Hindmarsh, and the resident commissioner, (Sir) James Fisher, over their respective jurisdictions had retarded the colony's development, so the two offices were combined in Gawler. Thus, as governor he became representative of the Colonial Office in the province, and as resident com … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mikroskopische Untersuchungen über die Uebereinstimmung in der Struktur und dem Wachsthum der Thiere und Pflanzen. xviii, 270pp. 4 folding engraved plates by C. E. Weber after the author's drawings. Berlin: Sander'schen Buchhandlung, 1839. 202 x 120 mm. Marbled boards ca. 1839, paper spine label, light wear at hinges and corners; preserved in a quarter morocco drop-back box (spine faded).Small library stamp almost invisibly erased on upper corner of title page; otherwise fine. First Edition of the work that established the cell as the basic unit common to both plants and animals. Schwann's rejection of the Hegelian notion of "vital forces" and his search for the underlying mechanical and structural principles common to all life led him to develop and revise his friend Schleiden's Uhrglastheorie (watch-glass theory) of plant cell formation into the first general theory of the cell as basis and origin of life. After Schleiden had pointed out to him the importance of the nucleus in plant cell development, Schwann successfully demonstrated the existence of similar structures in animal tissues. Discarding Schleiden's Uhrglastheorie, Schwann showed that the body's specialized tissues are not formed by their own peculiar "vital forces" but are the products of cell differentiation. He also described the neurilemma, the "sheath of Schwann." Dibner, Heralds of Science, 197. Garrison-Morton.com 113. Horblit, 100 Books Famous in Science, 93a. Norman 1914.

His colleagues there included Adam Sedgwick, William Conybeare, William Buckland, William Fitton, Charles Lyell and Charles Darwin. Exploring with his wife, Murchison studied the geology of the south of England, devoting special attention to the rocks of the north-west of Sussex and the adjoining parts of Hampshire and Surrey, on which, aided by Fitton, he wrote his first scientific paper, read to the Geological Society of London in 1825. In 1831 he went to the border of England and Wales, to attempt to discover whether the greywacke rocks underlying the Old Red Sandstone could be grouped into a definite order of succession. The result was the establishment of the Silurian system under which were grouped for the first time a remarkable series of formations, each replete with distinctive organic remains other than and very different from th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Manuscrit (27 pp. d'une fine écriture, avec ratures et corrections) intitulé "La Vérité sur l'administration de la Place de Constantine en 1839 et 1840", publié anonymement à Paris à l'imprimerie de Félix Loquin, en 1843, sous le titre "La province de Constantine en 1839 et 1840". Polémique après la publication à Paris d'une brochure anonyme, "Coup d'oeil sur l'administration française de la province de Constantine", par un Constantinien, attaque en règle contre les autorités militaires qui avaient géré la province en 1839-1840 (le maréchal VALEE à Alger, le général GALBOIS à Constantine), et défense de l'administration en 1841-1842, sous l'autorité du général NEGRIER. Le présent manuscrit conteste les thèses et l'impartialité du Coup d'oeil. Il défend notamment les chefs algériens exilés par Négrier et les « spéculateurs » européens qui fournissaient l'armée, et mitige les torts des interprètes véreux. Notre manuscrit présente des variations importantes par rapport au texte imprimé. La très longue lettre (brouillon de 22 pp. 1/2), de la même main non identifiée, s'adresse à un député et publiciste qui, dans une récente intervention à la Chambre, aurait voulu "enlever aux prédécesseurs de Mr le Gal Bugeaud, la gloire qu'ils ont acquise, et effacer, d'un mot, de nos annales les brillants faits d'armes qui ont eu lieu avant 1841, dans l'Algérie [...]". .

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.

The younger Phinneys, however, were not to be restricted to one shop: They sold their stock (which consisted of their own publications together with books brought in from Philadelphia and New York) from large travelling wagons and established a "bookboat" on the Erie Canal that enabled them to reach a larger portion of western New York. ---------- This is a truly unique piece of history....an early Cooperstown King James Version Bible, The same publisher and edition Used by LDS leader Joseph Smith to help translate the Book of Mormon! Smith used Phinney Bibles to translate from 1828, this is nearly an nearly identical … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cortot, particularly known for his interpretations of Chopin, made a highly-regarded recording of the Sonata no. 2. [Attributes: In Dust Jacket]

Liszt, Franz, Komponist, Schwiegervater Richard Wagners (1811-1886).
Über die Vorbereitung des ersten Bonner Beethovenfestes mit der Enthüllung des Beethoven-Denkmals, für das sich Liszt seit 1839 eingesetzt und erhebliche eigene Mittel beigesteuert hatte. Da für die Konzerte kein geeigneter Saal vorhanden war, mußte im Schnellverfahren eine hölzerne Festhalle errichtet werden, die danach wieder abgetragen wurde: "Mr. Liszt a l'honneur de saluer Mr. Le Comte de Lostanges et le prie de vouloir bien insérer dans la quotidienne de demain L'annonce ci-jointe. - Le Produit du Concert étant destiné à La Souscription pour le monument de Beethoven. Mr. Liszt est obligé de s'imposer une si grande réserve qu'il a le regret de ne pouvoir lui offrir qu'une Halle." - Das Bonner Beethoven-Denkmal wurde von Ernst Hähnel entworfen und von Jacob Daniel Burgschmiet ausgeführt. Die Enthüllungsfeierlichkeiten fanden am 12. August 1845 statt. Der Höhepunkt des Beethoven-Festes war ganz ohne Zweifel die Inaugurationsfeier des Beethoven-Monuments auf dem Münsterplatz. Begleitet wurde die Enthüllungsfeierlichkeit von einem mehrtägigen Fest, bei dem Franz Liszt Regie übte. Liszt hatte sich mit der enormen Summe von 2.666 Talern an den Gesamtkosten des Denkmals von 13.000 Talern beteiligt. - Ungedruckt.
