      Paris: La Vigne, 1841. First edition. Hardcover. First Edition. 16mo. 204p. With illustrations. Bound in marbled paper over boards. (The binding is probably later in date). Interior pages are clean and very mildly age-toned. A couple of miniscule marginal tears are neatly sealed. Page 73 contains a small chip in the margin; a few leaves show some wrinkling in the upper right corner. Many pages are uncut. The passage underlings on page 46 were apparently printed with the text and are not marginalia. OCLC lists two versions of the 1841 edition – one with 144 pages and the other (here offered) with 204p. An edition dated 1842 also exists. An interesting little grimoire or book of charms and spells with numerous occult diagrams and sigils. De Guaita catalogue mentions that Chuquet (presumably Alphonse Chuquet) considered the book to be an early work on magic by Eliphas Levi writing under a pseudonym. However, De Guaita argues that the writing style is unlike Levi’s and instead ascribes the book to the French Freemason and occultist J.M. Ragon. An uncommon book. [Caillet 3971; De Guaita 1377; Duveen, p. 220 (listing the 204p. version); Ferguson, Books of Secrets IV, p. 37-38; Du Prel 438 (listing the 144p. version)].

        JOURNAL OF A WHALING VOYAGE ABOARD THE METACOM OF NEW BEDFORD, 1842

      The “Metacom” was a 300 ton whaleship. She departed New Bedford November 6, 1841 and returned from the Pacific September 20, 1845 with 2000 bbl sperm oil. This journal records only the early part of that voyage - from January 1 to May 25, 1842, but the entries are entertaining and informative. The anonymous journal keeper is a common sailor. He stands watches, takes his turn at the wheel, and interacts with his shipmates - “had a spree with Murray gave him my fine knuckles in the mouth & repeated the mate came forward & sent him up aloft, rather inclined to think he had a cold berth of it.” He records in detail catches and losses, notes the “harsh treatment of the officers & the ill feeling toward them shown by the men.” He records their difficult rounding of the Horn and their cruise into the Pacific, passing “the island upon which Alex. Selkirk was cast away,” another instance of the captain punching a crewman, and several of officers’ meanness or brutality. He draws views of St. Felix and St. Ambrose, a spliced jib boom, the “Black Smith’s Forge” and several whales and ships. The steward gets very sick. Morale continues to deteriorate, despite success at whaling, so that when they put in at Paita - of which he draws a very nice view - “three of us run away but were caught again.” The next day, “four ran away and has not since bin heard of since.” It is possible that the writer was successful in a second try at deserting, because his entries end here. This journal is well written and handsomely illustrated, and is of note because it is illustrated and commented on in Norman Flayderman’s classic, “Scrimshaw and Scrimshanders.” On page 100 Flayderman says, “The sketches on the cover are identical with those found on many scrimshaw articles.” Pages grubby but legible. Old sewing pulled away with no loss of pages.

        MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK (being, OLD CURIOSITY SHOP and BARNABY RUDGE)

      London Chapman and Hall 1840, 1841 - 3 volumes. First edition. With 198 drawings by George Cattermole and Hablot Browne. Royal 8vo, bound in handsome period three-quarter tan calf over marbled boards, the borders ruled in blind, the spines very handsomely decorated with wide raised bands gilt decorated, compartments decorated with gilt panel designs incorporating fine central ornamental pieces, two compartments gilt lettered over maroon morocco labels, all edges marbled. iv,306, vi, 306, vi, 426. A handsome and well preserved set, internally quite clean and fresh with very little aging, the bindings in a fine state of preservation. MASTER HUMPHREY’S CLOCK was initially an experiment on Dickens’ part. He originally intended it to be a miscellany which would contain a continuous narrative linked by reminisces of the narrator, Master Humphrey. He outlined his goals in a preliminary letter to Chapman and Hall: "To introduce a little club or knot of characters and to carry their personal histories and proceedings through the work; to introduce fresh characters constantly; to re-introduce Mr. Pickwick and Sam Weller; [xxx] to write amusing essays on the various foibles of the day as they arise; to take advantage of passing events; and to vary the form of the papers by throwing them into sketches, letters from imaginary correspondents, and so forth, so as to diversify the contents as much as possible." Dickens would use ideas from the outline of this form in several succeeding books. As the originally-conceived miscellany, MASTER HUMPHREY’S CLOCK failed to gain a substantial readership, so the project was quickly abandoned, the story transformed into a serial, and the character of Master Humphrey himself abandoned as a narrator in the midst of THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP. According to Eckel, the work was published in four distinct forms over the course of its creation: in 88 weekly parts, 30 monthly parts, a three-volume edition, and in separately bound volumes of the two stories, "The Old Curiosity Shop" and "Barnaby Rudge." The three volume sets have become scarce indeed, especially so in such a fine state of preservation. According to Eckel, this work was published in four distinct forms: in 88 weekly parts, 30 montly parts, a three-volume edition, and in separately bound volumes of the two stories, "The Old Curiosity Shop" and "Barnably Rudge." "In the latter form," he states, "all the extraneous 'Clock' matter had been expunged, but was retained in the other forms of publication." The three volume sets have become scarce indeed and especially so in such a fine state of preservation. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1841. Rufus Choate's Copy [Trial]. Darnes, William P., Defendant. Nelson, Thomas S., Reporter. A Full and Accurate Report of the Trial of William P. Darnes, On an Indictment Found by the Grand Jury of St. Louis County, At the September Term, 1840, Of the Criminal Court of Said County, On a Charge of Manslaughter in the Third Degree, For the Death of Andrew J. Davis, (Late of Northboro', Mass.) In the City of St. Louis, On the First of June, 1840. Boston: Saxton and Peirce, 1841. 269 pp. Octavo (7-3/4" x 5"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in printed wrappers, untrimmed edges. A few chips to extremities, front joints starting, some wear to foot of spine, interior notably bright. "R. Choate" to head of front wrapper and title page, interior otherwise clean. * Second and final edition. Davis was the well-known owner of a St. Louis newspaper that published several highly critical columns about Darnes, an important local politician. Enraged, Darnes attacked Davis on the street with an iron rod, striking him in the head. Rushed to a hospital, Davis was operated on, but died a few days later. Darnes was indicted. The trial lasted two weeks and engaged some of the best lawyers and medical experts in the area. The case turned on whether Davis died from the blow or his medical treatment. Both sides offered a strong case. In the end Darnes was convicted of fourth-degree manslaughter and fined [1799-1859], the great Massachusetts lawyer and statesman. He was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1831-34, U.S. Senator from 1841-45 and Attorney General of Massachusetts from 1853-54. This case not in McDade. Stevens, St. Louis, The Fourth City, 1764-1911 I:369-70. Catalogue of the Library of the Harvard Law School (1909) II:1057.

With Illustrations by George Cruikshank, Phiz, &c. In three volumes. London: Henry Colburn, Publisher, Great Marlborough Street, 1841. 3 Vols., lge.12mo; half-titles not called for; frontispiece with tissue guard, and three, plates in volumes one and two, frontispiece and five plates in volume three; the first leaf of the final gathering in volume two, the title-page and second leaf of advertisements in volume three, are single insets; pp.[viii]+323+[i (blank)]; [iv]+298; [ii]+378+[iv (advertisements]; publisher’s inserted catalogue, 8pp., dated May, 1841, at end of volume two; vertically fine-ribbed bright grass-green cloth, ruled blind on sides and spine, elaborately blocked blind on sides, lettered gilt on spine (with title, volume number, ‘EDITED / BY / BOZ’ and ‘LONDON / COLBURN’); top- and fore- edges uncut; end-papers coated pale yellow. Small, and virtually invisible, restorations to cloth at head of one volume and tail of another; insignificant fading to cloth of spines; tissues foxed, with offsetting onto frontispieces; half a dozen fox-spots on edges of volume two; otherwise, and in effect, a very fine, crisp, copy. Scarce, especially thus. The second state of text, p.[iii], l.3 of text having the corrected reading, ‘young publisher’ instead of ‘publisher young’ as in the first state; the misprint on the title-page to volume one appears to be unrecorded. The prelims. to volume one are here apparently a cancel, bearing on the verso of the title-page the imprint of Palmer (who also printed volume two), the rest of the volume being printed by Cox. Eckel is in error in suggesting that the whole of volume one was reprinted by Palmer. Two of the plates are by George Cruikshank, six by Phiz, and six by R.J. Hamerton. Literary contributions are by Dickens, Agnes Strickland, Leitch Ritchie, Allan Cunningham, W.H. Maxwell, Thomas Moore, William Harrison Ainsworth, Horace Smith, etc. Among the anonymous pieces is a short novel concerned with necromancy. Sadleir, 703, not noticing the state; not in Wolff or Locke; Cohn, 236; Gimbel, B109. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

Très rare exemplaire de la seconde traduction en grec moderne de Bernardin de Saint-Pierre établie par le docteur Nicolas Spyridon Piccolos (l'édition originale, parue chez le même éditeur en petit format, date de 1824). Bon exemplaire (très bon état). "Au nombre des publications grecques que reproduit avec tant de libéralité et de zèle l’honorable librairie de M. Firmin Didot, il en est une qui mérite d’être relevée et où se trouve plus d’une particularité qu’on n’irait pas y chercher. M. le docteur Piccolos a traduit depuis bien des années déjà, Paul et Virginie en grec moderne ; il vient d’en donner une seconde édition fort corrigée et augmentée. Cette traduction ainsi que les autres travaux de M. Piccolos a pour but d’aider à la culture littéraire de ses compatriotes, et de rendre à la langue grecque moderne l’habitude d’exprimer des images et des idées dont elle avait trop perdu le maniement. En s’éloignant de sa source classique et en passant par une sorte de moyen-âge, la langue grecque s’est nécessairement altérée, elle s’est surtout appauvrie ; il s’agit de lui restituer toute son étendue et sa souplesse. M. Piccolos témoin du réveil de l’indépendance, ancien professeur de philosophie à l’académie de Corfou, n’a cessé, pour son compte, de travailler à cette espèce de restitution classique de la plus noble des langues". "Ce que nous avons surtout à relever aujourd’hui dans la seconde édition de son Paul et Virginie, ce sont les notes, les remarques ingénieuses sur l’œuvre même, et quelques points de littérature française véritablement aperçus pour la première fois. Que Bernardin de Saint-Pierre ait eu un très vif sentiment de l’antiquité, c’est ce que tout le monde voit d’abord et ce que tous les critiques ont exprimé ; mais M. Piccolos a curieusement noté toutes les imitations probables que le grand écrivain a faites ou pu faire des passages anciens, et dans le nombre il y en a d’avérées" (Revue des Deux Mondes, 1841, XXVII, 989) Langue: Grec [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Salopia Antiqua

      London and Cambridge, 1841 First edition, one of only a few copies on large paper, imperial 8vo, 640 pp, errata slip tipped in at the back, inserted chromo-lithograph title-p. Heightened in gold, 8 lithograph plates, decorative initials throughout, later full polished tan calf, elaborate gilt spine, quadruple gilt borders on covers, fleurons in the corners, the others uncut, very minor rubbing, (vii), [1], (xxii), 640 pp, 8pl. A lovely copy, nicely bound! (see Allibone, Avery AR42, Dariow, Lowndes 1007) Salopia antiqua, a genuinely original archaeological synopsis which may still be consulted with profit, was founded on an extensive and vigorous exploration of his native county: in 1837 he wrote (to Way) describing long tramps, of 30–50 miles daily, over the Shropshire hills. The book was in some respects pioneering, for example in its inclusion of material on dialect and place names which were anticipations of later, more systematic work by Georgina F. Jackson and others. Much of his work, however, contains errors and internal inconsistencies, and is characterized, according to one modern assessment, by ‘wide learning and shallow scholarship’ (Hunt, 31).

        The Wild Sports of Southern Africa;

      London: Pelham Richardson,, 1841. being the Narrative of an Expedition from the Cape of Good Hope through the Territories of the Chief Moselekatse, to the Tropic of Capricorn. Fourth Edition. Octavo. Original pinkish-brown, finely diapered cloth, title gilt to the spine within an attractively scrolled frame, upper board with a large block of a lion, giraffe, elephant, and wildebeest within an arabesqued foliate panel, bold corner-pieces of similar design in blind, the whole repeated in blind to the lower board, all edges gilt, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. Hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece, vignette half-title, and 24 plates, folding map with route marked in red. The spine sunned, corners a little bumped, some slight spotting to the upper board, hinges tight, plates with very pale browning, and occasional off-set to the tissue-guards, one or two minor spots of foxing , but overall a really very good copy indeed in the attractive original cloth. First published in Bombay in 1838, this edition follows the third, and best, of 1841, having two additional chapters - "giving a full account of the massacre of Retief and his party by Dingan, the fall of Piet Uys …, the death of Maritz, and the annihilation of the Natal settlers." (Mendelssohn) - and 26 "wonderful coloured plates of African game and scenery" (Czech). Harris was commissioned in the Bombay Engineers in 1823, promoted captain in 1834 and major in 1836. Invalided to South Africa for two years, on the voyage out he joined up with Richard Williamson, a Bombay civil servant, deciding to undertake a big game hunting expedition. "Harris journeyed to the Meritsane River where he encountered a herd of quaggas and brindled 'gnoos' he estimated at 15,000 head. He bagged eland and was attacked by lion in the region. Crossing the Mariqua River, he hunted ostrich and white rhinoceros. Entering the Cashan Mountains, he collected elephant, the proceeded to the Limpopo Valley where he hunted buffalo and hippopotamus, with additional sport after giraffe, black rhinoceros, sable, and lion. Harris's work is valuable as it presents a detailed picture of the South African game fields prior to the growing pressure of civilization." Howgego remarks that "Although primarily a hunting expedition, Harris covered much ground not seen before by Europeans, and on his way to the Vaal discovered the source of the Marique River, one of the head-waters of the Limpopo". A really unusually well-preserved copy of this handsome book.

        THE NORTH AMERICAN SYLVA; OR, A DESCRIPTION OF THE FOREST TREES OF THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, AND NOVA SCOTIA

      New Harmony, In. & Philadelphia. [1841]-1842.. Three volumes, complete with 156 color plates. Quarto. Antique-style in three-quarter morocco, gilt, raised bands, and marbled boards. Minor scattered foxing to text. Plates generally clean and fresh. Unobtrusive 19th-century private owner blindstamp on each title. Untrimmed, a near fine copy. The extremely rare first American edition of François Michaux's towering work on American trees, printed by William Amphlett at the utopian society of New Harmony, Indiana. The work was originally printed in Paris in 1817-19 by D'Hautel. In 1825 the 156 copper plates were purchased by the geologist William Maclure. At the time, Maclure had plans to develop an agricultural school in New Harmony, based on socialistic principles. He provided the plates of Michaux's work, which were printed and colored in Philadelphia, and gave financial backing to the New Harmony publishers. Work commenced on this edition sometime around 1829 and it took more than twelve years to complete. This is also the first edition to which Thomas Nuttall's supplementary volumes were later added, not present with this copy. While the Nuttall supplement is described on the titlepage, it had yet to be published when the Michaux was issued. This publication is the most important work on American trees prior to the 20th century. It is the product of the efforts of two of the greatest naturalists to work in 19th-century America, François A. Michaux and Thomas Nuttall. The beautifully executed plates illustrate leaves and nuts or berries of American trees across the entire continent. Sabin says of the work, "It is no exaggeration to remark that it is the most complete work of its kind, and is a production of unrivalled interest and beauty." Michaux's work was based on his extensive travels in the eastern half of America, and those of his father, from the 1790s on. Both men were friendly with Jefferson and other leading figures, who aided them in their work and travels. His book was first published with a Philadelphia imprint in 1817-19, although actually printed in Paris, where the plates were engraved as well. These plates were executed by the great French flower painters, Redouté and his associate, Bessa. The sheets of the first effort at reprinting the work were destroyed by fire, but the copper plates were separately stored and survived to be employed in this edition. A very good set of a classic of American natural history. All the products of the New Harmony press are rare, and this edition of NORTH AMERICAN SYLVA... is exceedingly rare. Ian MacPhail, in his bibliography of Michaux, locates only four copies of this printing. BENNETT, p.76. BYRD & PECKHAM 942. MacPHAIL, ANDRÉ & FRANÇOIS-ANDRÉ MICHAUX 21a. MEISEL III, p.436 (ref).

        Autograph Letter in Secretarial Hand Signed by Hammer-Purgstall to "Charles Fellows, Esquire" Regarding the Latter's Book.

      Vienna 1841 - Vienna, 12 January 1841. Quarto (ca. 25x20,5 cm). 2 pp. Brown ink on watermarked laid paper. Clear and complete text in secretarial hand, signed by "Your obedient much servant J. Hammer-Purgstall". Addressed, sealed and with the postal stamps on the 4th page. Paper soiled and slightly worn on folds, a hole on the 4th page after opening, not affecting the text, overall a very good letter. Fine example of a scientific correspondence between two European Orientalists: Joseph Freiherr von Hammer-Purgstall, founder and the first president of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (1847-1849) and British archaeologist and traveller in Asia Minor Sir Charles Fellows (1799-1860). In the letter Hammer-Purgstall informs his correspondent, that Mr Arneth, director of the Vienna Imperial Cabinet of Antics "has just transmitted to me in a small box sealed with the seal of the cabinet, the cast of all the coins which you desire and which the cabinet is possessed of. I'll deliver this small box immediately at our Secretary of State's office, to be forwarded with the next messenger". He advices Fellows about the fastest way of the parcel's delivery to London and later notes: "If you mention in our work the Vienna coins, be so good as to record Mr. Arneth's name in order to encourage him to further communications of this kind. I am myself eager for the appearance of your work, of which I promise myself much pleasure and information". The letter most likely relates to one of the Fellows' works about the archaeology of ancient Lycia: "An Account of Discoveries in Lycia, being a Journal kept during a Second Excursion in Asia Minor", published later that year, or "Coins of Ancient Lycia before the Reign of Alexander; with an Essay on the Relative Dates of the Lycian Monuments in the British Museum" (1855).

        Autograph Letter Signed "W. Parry" to "My dear Buxton" regarding the Ale Supply for the Niger Expedition 1841-42; With: Lithographed Portrait of William Parry].

      1841 - Admiralty, 8 December 4[1]. Small Octavo (ca. 17,5x10,5 cm). 1 p. Brown ink on watermarked laid paper. Written on verso of the official note from the Controller of Victualling Department of the Royal Navy, dated "Admiralty, Somerset House, 6 December 1841". Paper aged toned, mild fold marks, otherwise a very good letter. Portrait: lithograph on paper, ca. 1830-s, ca. 9,5x7,5 cm; lithographed titled and printer's address on the lower margin. An interesting item of the Niger Expedition 1841-1842, this letter from the famous Arctic explorer Sir Edward Parry, was written when he was a high ranking Admiralty official. The letter is addressed to Charles Buxton (1823-1871), English brewer, philanthropist, and Member of Parliament, the letter concerns the ale supplies for the participating steamers. It was Charles' father, Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton (1786-1845), a noted British politician and abolitionist, who was the initiator of the expedition. Parry forwards Buxton the official answer from the Royal Navy "Controller of Victualling" which says that "the Ale required for the Niger Expedition has been ordered from the Parties who supplied it on the last occasion, namely Mr.s Hodgson & Abbott, Captain Trotter having written favorably respecting the former supplies made by the same parties" [Henry Dundas Trotter (1802-1859) - the commander of the Niger Expedition]. Parry further notes "I have great hopes of receiving better accounts from the Niger, when we next hear I hope to write to your father today". "The Niger expedition of 1841 was a largely unsuccessful journey in 1841 and 1842 of three British iron steam vessels to Lokoja, at the confluence of the Niger River and Benue River, in what is now Nigeria. It was mounted by British missionary and activist groups, with the backing of the British government. The crews of the boats suffered a high mortality from disease" (Wikipedia). "In mid-August 1841 the expedition entered one of the mouths of the Niger. Early in October the last of its ships was limping back, its commander prostrated by fever, the cabins crammed with sick and dying, the geologist working the engines with the aid of a textbook. Those seven weeks cost forty-one European lives" (Dictionary of African Christian Biography on-line).
