        Plan of the Floating Dry Dock, and Articles of Association of the New York Floating Dry Dock Co., of the City of New York

      Alexander S. Gould, New York 1840 - Pamphlet, 8vo, original printed wrappers, large folding plate, 15 pp. Wrappers with a few chips and tears, and partially detached, but still connected, small notation on front wrapper, and short inscription on reverse of front wrapper, normal aging, folding plate shows a little foxing, but in very good shape overall. Very scarce title that presents a plan to build a floating dry dock to be used to repair ships. According to the discussion, the dry dock was to be based on a design by Joseph T. Martin, which he had a patent pending for in Washington. The purpose of this pamphlet was basically to give the reader a feel for the plan and some idea how it would work. The floating dry dock could repair and copper all kinds of ships, and would be made in sections constructed of strong timbers. The folding plate shows a ship on the dry dock, and comments suggest it could raise a vessel that was two thousand tons. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Des muthvollen Schiffcapitains Jean Francois Galoup, Grafen de la Perouse, höchst merkwürdige Entdeckung eines sechsten Welttheiles jenseits des 85sten Grades nördlicher Breite, und Wunderbare Schicksale der kühnen Mannschaft seiner Fregatte La Boussole in diesem überraschenden Himmelsstriche jenseits der bis jetzt für unübersteigbar gehaltenen Eisberge und Eisfelder. Aus den auf der Bricer-Insel aufgefundenen Reisetagebüchern und Manuscripten zusammengetragen und bearbeitet von Dr. Reidcliff. Aus dem Englischen übersetzt von F. C. Bindemann.

      Hamburg, Wichers 1840. - Ferguson III, 3026; Howgego V, Imaginary Voyages, L1. - Eine erste Ausgabe dieser sehr seltenen imaginären Reise erschien 1837; es dürfte sich um eine originäre Schrift handeln, der Verfasser ist wohl der als Übersetzer angegebene F. C. Bindemann. - Die 1788 im Pazifik spurlos verschwundenen Expeditionsschiffe unter Jean-François de La Pérouse gaben Anlass zu einer Reihe wilder Spekulationen über die Gründe; eine bald ausgeschickte Rettungsaktion endete tragisch, die beiden Kapitäne starben und die Schiffe kehrten 1793 ergebnislos nach Frankreich zurück. Erst 1828 fand Jules Dumont d’Urville Teile der Wracks von La Pérouses Schiffen vor der heute zu den Salomonen gehörenden kleinen Insel Vanikoro. Die einheimische Bevölkerung war noch im Besitz vieler Gegenstände der beiden Schiffe. Als die Neuigkeiten Europa erreichten, wurden zahlreiche, Authentizität vorgebende Schilderungen über den Verbleib der Mannschaft publiziert. Vorliegende Schrift ist eine der letzten Publikationen, die mit Enthüllungen aufzufahren versucht. Allerdings verarbeitet auch noch Jules Verne in seinem Roman "20.000 Meilen unter dem Meer" das Thema; Jack London beschreibt in seinem Roman Jerry, der Insulaner einen Inselhäuptling der Salomonen, der den abgeschlagenen und nach Südseeart präparierten Kopf einiger der Expeditionsmitglieder besitzt und darüber Betrachtungen über den Tod anstellt. - Broschur fleckig und mit kleineren Randdefekten, am Rücken lädiert. Tls fleckig, einige Blätter stärker betroffen. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Master Humphrey's Clock

      London Chapman and Hall,, 1840-1. With illustrations by George Cattermole and Hablot Browne. 3 volumes bound as 2, duodecimo in half sheets (260 x 174 mm). Contemporary half calf, gilt-tooled raised bands to spines, spines numbered and gilt ruled with clock designs in gilt to heads, blind roll tool to spines and covers, marbled sides. Frontispieces, illustrations in text by Cattermole and Browne. Bookplates to front pastedowns with purple ink smudged across names. Joints starting, wear to covers and extremities, foxing to endpapers, edges toned. A very good copy. First edition, first issue, with all the required issue points as stated by Smith. Master Humphrey's Clock contains Old Curiosity Shop and Barnaby Rudge, what Gordon Ray describes as "the pinnacle of Dickensian Gothic". He also notes that Phiz (H. K. Browne) "is in excellent form" and that George Cattermole's "wonderful clutter of antiquarian or architectural detail is well suited to Dickens's chosen subjects". Master Humphrey's Clock was a publishing experiment on Dickens's part, unique in his canon, of issuing two novels together.

        Oeuvres en prose et en vers de Boscheron.

      Sans lieu ni date (XVIII ème siècle). - Manuscrit in-4 sur papier vergé de 128 pages. Provenance manuscrite sur la page de garde: Mss de la Bibliothèque de M. De Broé. Il m'a été prêté par Désiré de Broé. Paris, 31 juillet 1840. Veau moucheté d'époque, dos à nerfs orné (reliure usagée avec manques). Boscheron, littérateur et poète français, est l’auteur d'un recueil de poésies diverses, imprimés à Paris chez J. Langlois en 1728. Il est connu aussi pour être l'auteur la vie de Quinault imprimée en tête de son Théâtre en 1715 (BnF ms. fr. 24.329). Notre manuscrit est très certainement de sa main par sa calligraphie (voir sur Gallica) et par le sujet de son Dialogue (p. 115) dans lequel il fait converser Quinault, Despréaux, Euripide et Horace aux "Champs Elisées". On trouve également un éloge de Molière (page 124) qui est un des ses auteurs de prédilection. Boscheron traite du Pouvoir des Arts, du Pouvoir de l'Estime ou de l'Amitié, puis de celui des Sciences et de l'Amour, de la Beauté (en vers). Suivent quelques correspondances amoureuses: Lettre à Mlle de., Lettre de Colombin à Madame xxx, une histoire amoureuse débutant à Venise (35 pp. en prose), puis divers lettres, fables pour finir par un Dialogue de Quinault, Despréaux, Euripide et Horace aux champs Elisées (11 pp.) et un éloge de Molière. La vente de la bibliothèque de Broé, conseiller à la Cour de Cassation, eût lieu les 9 et 10 novembre 1840 à Paris. Un manuscrit de la Biliothèque de l'Arsenal (n° 7553): « Anecdotes très curieuses de Ia cour de France, par Panage » porte cette note de Louis Monmerqué: « Désiré de Broé m'a cédé ce volume le 13 février 1844, jour auquel je lui ai remis tous les manuscrits de la bibliothèque de De Broé, à l'exception de ceux qu'il m'a cédés ou vendus. » Il est tout à fait probable que la note de notre manuscrit soit également de sa main.

        Views in Kairo. [Illustrations of Cairo].

      London: Tilt and Bogue, n.d. [1840].. FINE LITHOGRAPHIC ALBUM. Elephant Folio (55 x 37cm). A complete collection of 29 fine lithographs with a decorative lithographic title page and a lithographic dedication plate. Each plate with a recent tissue guard. In recent green half morocco with raised bands, gilt titles to spine and green cloth boards. Clean plates with some professional repair work to some edges and corners carried out at time of re-binding. A 1cm tear to top edge of the Bar en Nasr plate has formed since restoration. Repairs thus: top corner of title plate; top corner of dedication plate; top corner of Beyb el-Kasreyn plate; top edge of Fountain of el-Mudaffar plate; top corner of Boolak part 2 plate; top corner of Entrance to the Great Mosque plate. All the lithographic images themselves are clean, bright and unaffected by restoration. Very good overall. Together with the Orientalist Edward William Lane, to whom this volume is dedicated, Hay took part in an early archaeological / treasure-gathering expedition to Egypt between 1826 and 1838. Although the British Museum owns an extensive archive of Hay's drawings and diaries, this collection of lithographs, mainly from drawings by another of Hay's companions Owen Carter, is the only published example of their work. The plates mainly depict mosques, gates and street scenes from Islamic Cairo, rather than antiquities or ancient architecture.

        Album of Sixteen Hand-Colored Aquatint Swiss Views

      Zurich: H. F. Leuthold; Dikenman.. Cloth. Very Good. N.d., circa 1840. Oblong 4to. 25.5 by 33.5 cm. Views of Rigi, Zurich, Luzerne, the Rhine Falls, Hof Ragaz, Giessbach, Brienz, Interlaken, the Wetterhorn, the Staubach, Thun, and Vevey. The coloring is lush, the detailing, precise, and these plates are very much in the tradition of Lory, in their style and their quality. We believe this was an album that was assembled by a tourist, who would have chosen from a selection at a print shop and arranged, probably there, to have the prints then handsomely bound. Most of the prints were published by Dikenman, with a few by Leuthold. A few abrasions on the red pebbled cloth, which bears an owner's initials and has blindstamped and gilt ruled decoration. Tissue guards within with creases. Some marginal soiling. Pictures themselves are clean and stunning.

        Hog Hunting, the set of 4. [1] The Find; [2] The Burst; [3] The Charge; [4] The Tired Pig.

      London Fores c 1840 - Four aquatints with etching, uncoloured, each 58.5 x 78.5 cm. An extremely scarce complete set of these rare Indian hog hunting scenes. They depict one of the most exciting and dangerous of colonial sporting pastimes. What the hog lacked in size, it more than made up for in speed, agility and ferocity, testing the huntsman's equestrian skills to the limit. Captain John Platt (1802-1857) served in the 23rd Native Infantry Regiment in Bengal from the age of eighteen. The central plains of Bengal, between the natural boundaries of the Himalayas to the north, and the sea to the south, provide the setting for these scenes. Their publication can be dated between his promotion to captain in 1833, and his elevation to the rank of Major in 1847. Despite such dedication to his regiment, culminating in attaining the rank of colonel, he was murdered by mutineers from within his own ranks in 1857. Siltzer, p.335; Schwerdt III, p.122.
