        Description des hordes et des steppes des Kirghiz-Kazaks ou Kirghiz-Kaïssaks. Traduite du russe par Ferry de Pigny [.] revue et publiée par E. Charrière.

      Imprimerie royale for Arthus Bertrand Paris 1840 - Tall 8vo (24 x 15.8 cm). Half-title, title, dedication leaf, vi, 514, [2]pp., with 'atlas' title lithographed by Coulon, 10 lithographed plates and a large folding map; some spotting, several marginal tears not affecting text, some neat repairs to the folds of map. Contemporary calf over marbled boards, gilt lettering to spine; extremities slightly rubbed. "?????? ??????????????? ??????????????? ????????????? ?? ?????????, ??????? ? ?????????? ?????????? ?????? ???????? ???? ?.?.???????" (? ?????????? and ?.? ??????????, ???????????? ??????????? ? ????? ?????????? ?????????, in ?????? - ???????????? ???????? ?? ?????????? «???????????????? ??????? ??????????, 2010). First French edition. Rare on the market: we could not trace any copy at auction in the last 35 years. It contains the same illustrations and map (re-engraved) as the first edition, published in Russian in only 400 copies just 8 years earlier. One of the founders of the Russian Geographical Society, Liovshin (1798-1879) based his work on the material collected during his service at the Orenburg Border Commission in 1820-22. The author was much praised for his ability to combine scientific research with knowledge acquired directly from interaction with local people. Shokan Valikhanov (1835-65), another great Kazakh historian whose monument stands today in front of the Kazakhstan Academy of Sciences in Almaty, called him the "Herodot of the Kazakh steppes". Liovshin's groundbreaking work, first published partially by Pushkin himself, covers the geography, history and ethnicity of nowadays Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tadjikistan. Thanks to the extent of the work, its detailed researches and its structured method, it became the first comprehensive overview of the socio-political and ethnic Kazakh system. Liovshin extensively analysed most of the available Russian and foreign sources containing ethno-historical records of Kazakhs, and used in his work only information the validity of which he could prove. The large folding Carte du pays occupé par les Kirghiz-Kazaks ou Kirghiz-Kaïssaks et du Turkestan is a rare depiction of land included between, in the North, Orenburg and Omsk and, in the South Bukhara and Samarkand. Still in Soviet times, researchers such as the Kazakh ethnologist Edige Masanov (1926-65) considered it to be the most fundamental source for research of the Kazakh ethnography and in many cases the only one.

        Map of Asia

      London: James Wyld, 1840. unbound. Map. Engraving with original color outline. Image measures 20.5" x 25.5". This well designed map by James Wyld covers the entire continent of Asia from the Mediterranean Sea to New Guinea. Notes the political divisions circa 1840 with outline color and labels important cities, towns, rivers, islands, mountains, deserts, seas, lakes, and other topographical features. The Great Wall of China and the Grand Canal are both identified, so is the seat of the Mogul Empire of Genghis Khan at Karakarin. The disputed waters between Korea and Japan are here named in favor of Korea (Gulf of Corea).The map presents the region during "The Great Game", the political and diplomatic confrontation between Russia and the British Empire over the regions of Central and Southern Asia and Afghanistan in particular. The main concern for Russia was British inroads into Central Asia, while Britain feared Russia's threat to add India to its vast Empire. The result was the First Anglo-Afghan War on 1838 which Britain lost.The map is in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold and minor foxing. James Wyld Senior (1790-1836) was a distinguished British mapmaker known for producing maps and globes. He served as Geographer to George IV and William IV. This lovely map of is a fine example of his work.

        Camp of the Gros Ventres

      1840. First Edition . BODMER, Karl. Camp of the Gros Ventres of the Prairies on the Upper Missouri. Paris: Arthus Bertrand (Imprimé de Bougeard), [1840]. Original hand-colored aquatint, plate impression measures 17 by 13 1/2 inches; window matted, entire piece measures 23 by 20 inches. $1800.Fine hand-colored folio plate (number 38), first state, from the magnificent Atlas volume for Maximilian Wied-Neuwied's Travels in the Interior of North America (1839-43).MaximilianÂ’s monumental work was originally published in German (1839-41); a French translation followed in 1840-43 and an English translation in 1843. A picture-atlas of eighty-one plates (48 folios and 33 “vignettes”) after paintings by Karl Bodmer was issued in Paris, and accompanied all three of these editions. This Atlas is now regarded as one of the most comprehensive and memorable visual surveys of the western territories ever produced. Unlike some other painters of the American West, Bodmer tried not to romanticize his subjects, but show them as they really were. “BodmerÂ’s watercolors are perhaps the most accurate works of art ever made of American Indians during the 19th century. His attention in detail to beadwork, personal symbols, clothing, accoutrements, and facial expression make these portraits precious documents of a lost world” (Robert Moore). This superb hand-colored aquatint depicts the events of August 5th, 1833, when Prince MaximilianÂ’s 60-foot keelboat Flora anchored opposite a Gros Ventre encampment at the mouth of the Judith River. The camp contained over 200 tipis and the boat was soon surrounded by visitors looking to trade. MaximilianÂ’s party was far outnumbered and the situation became somewhat tense. In his journal entry for that day, the Prince noted, “If it was their intention to treat us in a hostile manner, there was no way for us to escape; and how easily might the most trifling dispute with these rude men lead to a breach, by which fifty whites, in the power of eight or nine hundred Indians, would have had no chance. They were therefore treated with much apparent confidence and familiarity, and everything went off very well.” This wonderful print is folio number 38 (with the requisite three separate imprint statements, captions in German, French, and English, and the artistÂ’s embossed stamp: “C. Bodmer Direct”). First state, without date in the imprint statement. Ruud, 202-03. See Howes M443a; Wagner-Camp 76; Streeter 1809. Hand-coloring vivid and colors true, faint “speckled” foxing (not affecting the quality of the image). A very desirable and rare Bodmer, in extremely good condition.

        Groningen, Tussen Beide Markten - ca. 1840-1860.

      ?Tusschen de Beide Markten Groningen?. Lithografie vervaardigd ca. 1840-1860 door Steendrukkerij J.H. v/d. Weijer te Groningen naar een tekening van Sybolt Berghuis (1820-1896). Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 41,5 x 46 cm.Gezicht van de Groningse binnenstad naar het westen, Tussen Beide Markten van de Grote Markt naar de Vismarkt. In de achtergrond de Aa-toren.In het midden van de 19de-eeuw kent Groningen een periode van grote bevolkingsgroei waarbij omwille van stadsuitbreiding de poorten werden gesloopt en de vesting werd ontmanteld. Groningen werd de zesde stad van Nederland. Vanaf 1854 is er een gemeentelijke gasfabriek, waardoor de openbare weg, maar ook veel interieurs van winkels en woningen nu voor het eerst voldoende werden verlicht. Eveneens in de jaren 1850 kwam er een einde aan de private mestvaalten binnen de stad en werd er een begin gemaakt met de aanleg van riolering. Pas vanaf 1880 kregen woningen een aansluiting op de waterleiding.Het betrekkelijke isolement waarin Groningen verkeerde, werd toen voor wat betreft landverkeer verbroken. De eerste bestrate rijksweg, naar Assen, werd geopend in 1825, maar werd pas in in 1839 doorgetrokken naar Zwolle. In 1842 en 1849 volgden de Friesestraatweg en de weg naar de grens richting Hannover. Pas als laatste grote stad in ons land maakte Groningen in 1866 kennis met het spoor.In het witte gebouw links op de prent, het zgn. Blokhuis, verkoopt men manufacturen. In 1893 zou het ?telefoonbureel? van de Nederlandsche Bell Telephoon Maatschappij zich hier vestigen, waar telefonistes de verbindingen legden voor telefoon-abonnees van de stad. (Thans bevindt zich op deze plek Bakkerij Bart.) Er tegenover was de paraplu- en parasolwinkel van Lestrade gevestigd. Meer richting Vismarkt zien we ook de lakenwinkel van J.G. Bakker.Tussen Beide Markten anno 2015Prijs: ?925,-.

        Group of large autograph leaves of reminiscences and reflections, unsigned, (John, 1801-1870, Painter and Sculptor)

      1840 - and apparently unpublished, in his fine hand, including a striking and accomplished pencil drawing, 'Sir Francis Chantrey's visit to see my Model' (of 'Adam and Eve lamenting over the dead body of Abel', exhibited in 1823), together 12 sides on 10 sheets18" x 13¾", loose in a contemporary portfolio, no place, no date but watermark Wood was the son of a drawing master in Whitechapel. He painted portraits (including Peel and Earl Grey) and his historical and literary subjects had an assurance and power of invention which brought him a great reputation at the time. His reminiscences are under various headings, some dramatic - "A life trial or adventure", "Scene - My father's house in Whitechapel", - and some reflective, "A Tableau of the Past". They begin with his first day as an apprentice, at Rudolf Ackermann's in the Strand. Believing he would be engaged in drawing and design, he was set to copy a manuscript on to a stone for printing, and in bitter disappointment walked home, to explain all to his parents. Studying at Henry Sass's school, he was given some clay and a modelling tool, with which he made the subject of the present drawing. He tells of Chantrey's only adverse comment, whereupon he seized some string, decapitated Abel and at once made the neck somewhat shorter, while Chantrey looked on. Then at the R.A. schools, he won the gold medal for painting, and he tells in affectionate terms how Lawrence, P.R.A., interviewed him and advised him to take lodgings in the West End. Wood's father "expostulated" but did not hold him back. The last four sides tell of his intense gratitude to Providence, and his pleasure that his father lived to know of his success.

        OLIVER TWIST [or The Parish Boy's Progress] In Three Volumes

      London: Richard Bentley, 1840. New Edition [cf. Tillotson Transactions of the Bibliographical Society. Fifth Series, Vol. XVIII, No. 2, June 1963; Smith, Notes 5d and 5e]. Publisher's original dark red-brown diaper cloth, vertically-ribbed, with gilt spine lettering (imprint present); arabesque design in blind to the boards. Average wear to extremities; spines sunned; light foxing and occasional edge-darkening to plates. VG.. Three volumes: [2], 331, [1, blank], [4, ads] pp.; [2], 307, [1, blank] pp.; [2], 315, [1, blank] pp. 24 engraved plates by George Cruikshank. 8vo. 8-1/4" x 5" Volumes I and II of the Bentley's fictitious "new edition," printed from the plates of the Second Edition, with Vol III of the 1840 publication (this volume entirely reset and printed by Schulze). Given the matched casings, we presume the sheets were sent by the publisher to bindery at the same time and so sold as a set in 1840. Tillotson mentions having seen only one other copy of the New Edition, at the London Library, rebound and lacking the advertisements; Smith notes that it is "[v]ery scarce" and adds that the 1840 issue is also "quite scarce."

        Narrative of an Expedition to the Polar Sea

      1840. First Edition . (WRANGEL, Ferdinand von.) SABINE, Edward, editor. Narrative of an Expedition to the Polar Sea, in the Years 1820, 1821, 1822, & 1823. Commanded by Lieutenant, now Admiral, Ferdinand von Wrangell, of the Russian Imperial Navy. London: James Madden, 1840. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter green morocco. $1500.First edition in English of this report of a Russian naval expedition in the Arctic Sea, with a large folding map of Northeastern Siberia.Von Wrangel (whose name also appears in transliteration as Vrangel or Wrangell) headed a Russian government expedition to survey the coast eastward from the Kolyma River and northward in the East Siberian Sea for new land. The expedition was able to establish that north of Cape Shelagsky was only open sea, and not land; charted the Siberian coast from the Indigirka River to Kolyuchinskaya Bay; and collected data on climate, geomagnetics, glaciers, natural resources and population. “These explorations seemed to confirm the existence of an open and navigable sea deep in the Arctic” (Hill 1916). Von Wrangel went on to become the Russian governmentÂ’s chief administrator of Russian settlements in North America, and later president of the Russian-American Company and the Minister of the Russian Navy. He opposed the 1867 sale of Alaska to the United States. This edition is a translation from the 1839 German edition “with some abridgement of text, and the omission of meteorological tables in appendix” (Arctic Bibliography 18994). Sabine was himself an arctic explorer, having served in expeditions under John Ross and Edward Parry; the text of this edition was translated by SabineÂ’s wife Elizabeth. The Russian edition, with the title Expedition Along the North Siberian Coast and in the Arctic Sea during the Years 1820-1824, was not published until 1841. Fitzgerald 760. Ex-library, with library bookplate. Bookseller ticket.Light soiling and finger marks to text, with embrowning of preliminary and concluding leaves, including folding map. Map backed in silk. Light rubbing to binding. A near-fine copy of a scarce polar title.

        MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK

      1840 - [a handsome copy] With Illustrations by George Cattermole and Hablot Browne. [In Three Volumes.] London: Chapman and Hall, 1840/-41/-41. Original blind-stamped purple-brown cloth with gilt-decorated spines and front covers. First Edition in book form of THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP and of BARNABY RUDGE. After NICHOLAS NICKLEBY, Dickens decided that all his future novels would be issued as loosely-connected tales presented by one Master Humphrey; furthermore, serialization would be weekly, and with illustrations printed within the text rather than on separate plates. MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK was initially issued in 88 weekly (and also grouped as 20 monthly) parts; the three volumes in cloth were accordingly published separately, at intervals of about seven months. Simultaneous with the publication of Vol III, MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK was divided and issued as two separate one-volume novels -- at which time Dickens gave up on the experiment, and reverted to the old formula (monthly serial parts, with separate plates) for MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT and subsequent novels.~This set is in the primary (and usual) binding, with the gilt front cover clock whose hands point to the appropriate volume number. Subscribers to serial parts could have them bound into this "original publisher's cloth" at a multitude of places, so variations of endpapers and edges are many. We have seen copies of MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK with several variations of endpapers: marbled, light coffee-brown, plain white, and (as here) pale yellow. The page edges are plain (some copies with marbled endpapers also have marbled edges).~The condition of the volumes is very good-plus: there is very slight wear at a few extremities (bottom edges) and some of the endpapers have minor cracking, but there is less than the usual fading of the spines, the cover gilt remains nice and bright, and there is scarcely any foxing within. Smith I pp 44-57. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
