Hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece, vignette half-title, and 24 plates with tissue guards, folding map with route marked in red.

A good copy. Third and preferred edition, with two extra chapters, first published in Bombay in 1838. William Cornwallis Harris (1807–1848) was commissioned in the Bombay Engineers in 1823, and promoted captain in 1834 and major in 1836. Invalided to South Africa for two years, on the voyage out he decided to join up with Richard Williamson, a Bombay civil servant, for a big game hunting expedition. The book is an account of Harris's journey, finely illustrated with attractive plates of African game and scenery. Harris's work is valuable as it presents a detailed picture of the South African game fields prior to the growing pressure of civilisation. Although primarily a hunting expedition, Harris covered ground never before seen by Europeans, and discovered the source of the Marique River, one of the head-waters of the Limpopo.

Erste deutsche Ausgabe seines Hauptwerkes zur Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung. - "The book was in large part a treatise on probability theory after the manner of Laplace, with an emphasis on the behavior of means of large numbers of measurements. The latter portion dealt with the subject matter of the title. Some of this material was taken from memoirs Poisson published in the two preceeding years. Only a charitable modern reading could identify a new concept in the work; yet the book contains the germ of the two things now most commonly associated with Poisson's name. The first of these is the probability distribution now commonly called the Poisson distribution. The second most common appearance of Poison's name in modern literature is in connection with a generalization of the Bernoulli law of large numbers" (Stigler, History of Statistics). - Poisson (1781-1840), Schüler von Laplace, war Professor für Mathematik und Physik an der École Polytechnique in Paris.

        Autograph Letter Signed to Abby Dwight Woodbridge

      Concord, 1841 In this tremendous letter on his philosophy of the individual and on writing poetry, Emerson describes for a prospective contributor the workings of his fabled literary magazine, The Dial. Founded the previous year, the magazine was the chief publication of the Transcendentalists. When The Dial failed in 1844, Horace Greeley called it "most original and thoughtful periodical ever published in this country." Emerson writes in part, "... respecting our little journal, the Dial, I have to say that all the contributions to that paper are gratuitous. It was set on foot by a party of friends, & is furnished with matter by them. A very few persons, on whose pen a constant dependence is placed, receive each a copy of the work & no other reward. The occasional contributors have not received even this recompense so entirely is this journal an experiment, hitherto uncertain whether its subscription list would pay its printing and publication. Miss [Margaret] Fuller, the editor, who is to have some contingent allowance from the publishers, has thus far, I believe, received none." Emerson outlines his philosophy of poetry. Referring to "the petty tyranny of my office as poetic critic," Emerson explains "why I did not press my friend Miss Fuller to insert these harmonious lines you have sent me in the Dial for this month." He acknowledges that "I am very hard to please in the matter of poetry, but my quarrel with most of the verses I read is this, namely, that it is conventional, that it is a certain manner of writing agreed on in society (in a very select society, if you will),--and caught by the ear; but is not that new, constitutional, unimitated & inimitable voice of the individual, which poetry ought always to be.... The imagery ought to reveal to me where & with whom he or she has spent the hours, & ought to show me what objects (never before so distinguished) his constitution & temperament have made affecting to him. In short, all poetry should be original & necessary." Continuing this splendid rejection letter, Emerson praises Woodbridge's "smooth and elegant verse" but notes "I should prize more highly much ruder specimens from your portfolio ... which recorded in a way you could not repeat, some profound experience of happiness or pain." The recipient, Abby Dwight Woodbridge, was a poet and teacher in Albany. In a biographical sketch of the poet in A Woman's Record, Sarah J. Hale observed that Woodbridge's "writings are her amusement and relaxation in her hours of leisure, and show much purity of taste and ease of expression." Emerson closes, "You must not, however, judge me so ill as to think me quite contented with such verses as we have published in our magazine. Yet I please myself much with the marked taste for poetry which is showing itself everywhere in the country, & I congratulate you on the possession of an ear & talent which promise so much." This long letter on poetry and individual experience reflects one of the great themes of Emerson's thought-- the individual. "Emerson remained throughout his lifetime the champion of the individual and a believer in the primacy of the individual's experience. In the individual can be discovered all truths, all experience. ... Central to defining Emerson's contribution to American thought is his emphasis on non-conformity that had so profound an effect on Thoreau. Self-reliance and independence of thought are fundamental to Emerson's perspective in that they are the practical expressions of the central relation between the self and the infinite. To trust oneself and follow our inner promptings corresponds to the highest degree of consciousness" (IEP). This is one of the best Emerson letters to appear on the market in decades. 3 1/4 pp. on a single folded sheet with address panel. Small seal hole with slight loss of text. Framed.

        Early Draft Autograph Manuscript of "Excelsior," incorporated into an Autograph Letter Signed to Samuel Cutler Ward ("My dear Excelsior")

      Cambridge, 1841 In this outstanding literary letter, Longfellow writes in full and sends an early draft of his beloved poem "Excelsior," commenting on its meaning and significance and writing out all thirty-six lines. The poet states that the work is among the best he has written, describes the circumstances of its writing, and points out its central theme. He observes that only one person has seen it and that Ward should "keep it quietly to yourself." Longfellow writes in part, "I am glad you liked Endymion, for sympathy is sweet. But today I send you something much better; indeed one of the best things, if not the best, that I have written. The other night, about one o'clock, as I was smoking a cigar preparatory to going to bed, it came into my mind; but as it was late, I thought I would not write it out till the morning. Accordingly, I went to bed; but I could not sleep. That voice kept ringing in my ears; and finally, I jumped out of bed, lighted my lamp, and set to work. The result was this poem, and a dreadful cold and rheumatism, which have confined me to my chamber for two days. The idea of the poem is the Life of Genius; This you will comprehend at a glance. Many people will not comprehend it at all. I send it to you because I know you will like it. No one has seen it but [Cornelius Conway] Felton; who found less than usual to criticize. Don't give it to anyone; but keep it quietly to yourself. . . ." Longfellow met Samuel Ward, the recipient of this letter, in Europe in 1836, and the two became lifelong friends. "Ward was easily the wildest friend Longfellow ever had, and Longfellow's letters to him are among his most exuberant" (Longfellow Companion). Beginning in 1838 Ward served as Longfellow's literary agent, selling his poems to New York periodicals. This early draft of the poem, written two days after the first draft (now at Harvard), differs in a number of points from the final version, including the lack of the exclamation point after the word "Excelsior" ending each stanza. The much-anthologized "Excelsior" has long been among the poet's best-known works. Eight stanzas appear on the facing pages 2-3, making this exceptional manuscript ideally suited for display. 4to. 3 1/2 pages. Silked, seal tear at outer edge of address leaf expertly repaired with paper. Very good.

      London: William Pickering, 1841 - Octavo. Original green cloth, rebacked with the original spine laid down, spine lettered in gilt, ornate gilt centrepiece to covers within blind-stamped floral border. Gilt edges. Bookplate to pastedown, presentation inscription to front free endpaper dated 1886, library stamp to verso of title page.

A good copy. Hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece, vignette half-title, and 24 plates with tissue guards, folding map with route marked in red. Third and preferred edition, with two extra chapters, first published in Bombay in 1838. William Cornwallis Harris (1807–1848) was commissioned in the Bombay Engineers in 1823, and promoted captain in 1834 and major in 1836. Invalided to South Africa for two years, on the voyage out he decided to join up with Richard Williamson, a Bombay civil servant, for a big game hunting expedition. The book is an account of Harris's journey, finely illustrated with attractive plates of African game and scenery. Harris's work is valuable as it presents a detailed picture of the South African game fields prior to the growing pressure of civilisation. Although primarily a hunting expedition, Harris covered ground never before seen by Europeans, and discovered the source of the Marique River, one of the head-waters of the Limpopo. Abbey, 334; Czech p.71; Howgego, II, p.275; Mendelssohn I, pp. 689-90.

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. Nissen 1235; Plesch p. 317 ("aux illustrations élégantes bien composées, certaines dénotant un talent peu commun"); Pritzel 5633; see also Sarah Dewis, The Loudons and the Gardening Press: A Victorian Cultural Industry (2016).
