As a sailor of long experience, Marryat was annoyed that Wyss had portrayed being shipwrecked as a romantic adventure and he disapproved of the ignorance regarding flora and fauna displayed by Wyss. The Seagrave family in Marryat's novel have to overcome many hazards, beginning with the initial storm which wrecks the ship and injures the passengers.

         Hand signed autograph letter by Albert Einstein + COA - Make an Offer

      1841 - Description: EINSTEIN, ALBERT. (1879-1955). German-born physicist, humanitarian and Nobel Prize winner; promulgator of the General and Special Theories of Relativity. TLS. (“A. Einstein”). 1p. Oblong 8vo. Princeton, October 14, 1941. On his blind-embossed Princeton stationery. To his close friend, German psychiatrist OTTO JULIUSBURGER (1867-1952). In German with translation. “I am coming to New York on Friday and would be very happy to see you and your lovely wife either Friday evening, Saturday or Sunday. Please contact our mutual friend Dr. Bucky by phone (Rhinlander 4-2434) to arrange a time. Looking forward to our happy reunion and with my best regards to you and your family ” In 1905, while working as a clerk at the Bern, Switzerland, patent office, Einstein published four papers, including one detailing his special theory of relativity. His work laid the foundation for modern physics and was recognized with the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics. Despite his prominence, Einstein, like so many academics of his time, was forced into exile in 1933, due to the anti-Semitic persecution in Nazi Germany. Einstein was attached to Princeton’s Institute for Advanced Study for the remainder of his life. Juliusburg and Einstein’s friendship began in 1917 after Einstein’s nephew was treated by the eminent Berlin psychiatrist. Juliusburger, who specialized in addiction, combined his scientific work with philosophical ideas drawing inspiration from the likes of Arthur Schopenhauer and Baruch Spinoza. “As a Jew he was aware of increasing danger [in Germany]. In 1937 he was able to send his two children, one at a time, to the United States, and almost at the last moment before the advent of the infamous gas chambers, the parents succeeded in following their children,” at Einstein’s urging and with his financial support, (Albert Einstein, The Human Side: Glimpses from His Archives, ed. Dukas & Hoffmann). After his emigration in 1941, Juliusburger lived in New York City. Our letter mentions Juliusburger and Einstein’s mutual friend, Gustav Peter Bucky (1880-1963), who in 1913 developed a two-plate system that made x-rays of practical medical application. Like Einstein, Bucky immigrated to the United States in 1933, where he met the physicist while treating his wife Elsa. They became close friends and Einstein helped Bucky patent some of his radiological inventions that included jointly filing a patent for a camera in 1935. Bucky was at Einstein’s bedside when he died in 1955. Folded with some light creasing and in fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

A very good, clean copy. First and best edition. "Mrs. Loudon's attractive flower books, first published in the forties, were reissued ten or fifteen years later with plates that had become coarsened and joyless" (Wilfrid Blunt, The Art of Botanical Illustration, 1950, p. 236). Jane Loudon née Webb, (1807-1858), "was to Victorian gardening what Mrs Beeton was to cookery. Her beautifully illustrated books on gardening and plant identification sold in their thousands and women all over the country were enthused by them to take up gardening as a hobby" (V&A online). She met her husband, the landscape gardener and horticultural writer John Claudius Loudon, when her extraordinary early novel The Mummy! A Tale of the Twenty-Second Century (1827) - a pioneering science fiction work which set futuristic technology, including a steam plough, among the trappings of Egyptomania - was reviewed favourably by Loudon in The Gardener's Magazine. The Scot decided to "seek out the acquaintance of the writer, whom he believed to be male" (ODNB) - and they were married seven months later.

Beautiful winter scene on the St. Lawrence by Henry James Warre Henry James Warre (1819 - 1898) graduated from Sandhurst and spent his entire working career in the British Army, advacing to Lieutenant General by the time of his retirement. He was also a very talented artist and his greatest contribution turned out to be the drawings he made in Her Majesty's Service in Canada, Crimea and New Zealand. This picture of people sleighing on the frozen St. Lawrence by Montreal on horse-drawn sleighs is one of Warre's earliest published works. It was made several years before the famous "Sketches of North America". Montreal and Mount Royal form the backdrop for this cheerful winter scene, in which Warre, his fellow officers and friends ride, bundled in furs, in their open sleighs on ice so thick it supports the mass of trotting horses and heavy sleds.

         Eliza Grimwood, a domestic legend of the Waterloo Road, with biographical notices of her fair companions; also, Sketches of dukes, lords, Hon. M.P.s, magistrates, and her murderer.

      B.D. Cousins. [1841] - FIRST EDITION. Front., illus. two signed W.M. or N. Contemp. half brown calf, gilt spine, red label; rubbed & sl. chipped at tail. Scarce: BL & Oxford only on Copac. In 40 pts, the last two without illus. The frontispiece is ?Catastrophe at Whorlton Bridge . 14th October, 1829? The plot is based on the actual murder of a prostitute on 6th May 1838. ?Lloyd?s Weekly London Newspaper? reports in August 1845 that the man named Hubbard, charged with the murder and exculpated, had died in about 1842, but that a soldier named George Hill supposedly confessed in Dublin in 1844. On September 14, 1845 the newspaper reports that a suspect who has signed a confession has appeared in Court, but there is no further information. This revival of interest in the case was perhaps prompted by the publication of this satirical novel, vividly exposing London low life, which however names a different murderer. It was first advertised in 1841 with Pt. 1 to be given away with no. 235 of The Penny Satirist, the wrapper and frontispiece to be in pt. 2, (October 17, 1841). The Author is described as ?of great eminence? but has not yet been identified. One of the interesting episodes in the novel features a poor penny-a-liner Gabriel Augustus Gregory Crowe of Scottish origin, who has been identified (by Louis James) as a portrait of George Augustus Sala, but who may equally in part represent another ?blood? author Gabriel Alexander. Crowe is ?one of the most respectable Dreadful Accident-makers in London?, what we would now call an ?ambulance chaser? This copy has a pencil note that it belonged to the celebrated collector Ronald Rouse of Norwich, and also states that in 1828, ironically, Eliza Grimwood was one of the first people to see the mutilated remains of Maria Marten.

Cf. for the 1840 issue Atabey 337 and Brunet II, 583; not in Blackmer. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         The Young Lady's Toilet

      Hartford and Berea: E.B & E.C. Kellogg, 1841. Cardboard covers. Very good. Complete with title page and 19 leaves, each featuring one or more moveable flaps that, when raised, reveal a commendable quality. 19 of the original 21 flaps are present. Card covers; sound binding. Minor wear; some foxing. Dampstain to the title-page and first four leaves. The pages of this children's behavior book show illustrations of objects found on a young woman's dressing table. Surprises occur when flaps on the pages are raised and it becomes clear that the label does not address the physical item, but rather describes an underlying quality or trait. For example, "A wash to smooth wrinkles" becomes "contentment." And "Fine lip salve" is "cheerfulness." Some of the items relate to study and work: two earrings reveal "attention" and "retention" along with the advice, "With these clear drops appended to the ear / instructive lessons you will hear," and an "Invaluable pair of bracelets" turn out to be "industry" and "perseverance.". Toilet books were a 19th century genre of movable books, the first of which, simply titled The Toilet, was illustrated by miniaturist William Grimaldi and published in London in 1821. Rather scarce. As of 2017 no other examples of this title are for sale in the trade, although a number are held by institutions. Five examples, in varied conditions, have been sold at auction in the past sixty years.

         Napoléon de la vallée du tombeau au Dôme des Invalides ; suivi du panorama du trajet parcouru par le cercueil.

      Paris, H. L. Delloye, Brioude 1841 - in-8, [4]-124 pp., avec "in fine", un grand dépliant lithographié par Brioude d'après Charles Lemercier, regroupant 15 vues depuis Sainte-Hélène jusqu'au dépôt du cercueil aux Invalides, cartonnage bleu, dos lisse muet, plats illustrés d'un décor doré (titre et emplacement de la tome sur le premier plat ; Napoléon méditant depuis un rocher sur le second), (reliure de l'éditeur). Dos un peu insolé, rousseurs, mais bon exemplaire. L'ouvrage est très peu commun (surtout dans son cartonnage d'éditeur, comme ici), et se présente comme un témoignage, celui d'un officier embarqué sur le brick l'Oreste (le troisième navire qui, en plus de la Belle-Poule et de la Favorite, avait directement rejoint Sainte-Hélène, commandé par le capitaine de corvette Louis-Isaac Doret (1789-1866), rescapé du projet de l'île d'Aix en 1815), pendant les opérations de transfert de la dépouille de l'Empereur. L'Oreste n'accompagna pas les deux autres navires lors de leur retour en France, ce qui clôt le récit au 18 octobre 1840. Effectivement, Louis-Joseph-Auguste-Edouard Pujol, né en 1810, entré dans la marine en 1826, était alors enseigne de vaisseau sur ce brick, et rejoignit après cette escale son mouillage en Amérique du Sud (Montevidéo, puis le Brésil). Promu lieutenant de vaisseau le 25 novembre 1842, il quitta le service en 1846 par suite d'infirmités, puis fut réformé en 1849, à la suite de quoi on pert sa trace. Davois III, 117.

Il est le premier à utiliser le terme Renaissance pour qualifier son époque. Cet ouvrage mythique est d'une importance fondamentale car il pose les prémisses méthodologiques de l'Histoire de l'art.

[AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First complete edition.

Illustrated with 121 portraits of Jeanron engraved on steel. Binding in half chagrin green pine of epoch. Back with nerves with decorated boxes. Black title and cut pieces.

He is the first to use the term Renaissance to describe his time. This work is of fundamental importance because it poses the methodological premises of the History of art. It brings together the biographies of the Italian painter from Cimabue to Michelangelo. In addition, Vasari will realize for the Medici the corridor that will link the Palazzo Vecchio to the Palazzo Pitti.
