        e Palamede de, reve mensuelle des Echecs et Autres Jeux

      Bureau de la Revue au Cercle des Echecs, Paris 1841 - 339 pages with diagrams, illustrations and index. Royal ocatavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/4") bound in quarter leather with gilt lettering to spine over red boards. Volume one of the second era. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:6013) First edition. In 1836, fans of Cafe de la Regence at the French Place du Theatre in Paris, and friends of Louis Charles Mahe De La Bourdonnais, decided to create a magazine, named Le Palamede, which would show the beauty on the game of chess. The French, recognized as the best players in the world; since, in 1834 La Bourdonnais met Irish master Alexander MacDonnell in a series of six matches, with La Bourdonnais winning (+45, =13, -27) overall, and created a fervor for the game not only in England but France as well. The publication began in 1836 and the premature death of the Bourdonnais in 1840, interrupted for two years the publication of Palamedes, before it was revived in December 1841 by Pierre Charles Fournier de Saint-Amant, his successor in the supremacy of the Cafe de la Regence; who continued publishing it until the end of 1847. The magazine lived another five years, with nearly 300 subscribers, before dying in 1847. It was named after Palamedes, the inventor of dice in Greek mythology. Condition: Spine heavily scuffed, corners badly bruised and worn and rubbed through, previous owner's tag to front pastedown, foxing and occasional marginalia else a good copy.

Man versah einzig und allein die Haupttitelseite unten mit dem Erscheinungsjahr. Alle anderen Zwischentitel blieben ohne Jahreszahl. So konnte man nicht nur diese Titelblätter weiterverwenden, wenn sie von einer früheren Auflage übrig geblieben waren. Man verfuhr auch so mit allen noch vorhandenen Bogen oder Lagen, insbesondere bei den Weimarer Bibeln mit den Kupfern. Umgekehrt konnte es passieren, dass sich die zahlreich verwendeten Zierstücke (Initialen, Vignetten, Zierleisten. Rahmen der Textholzschnitte u.ä.), die als Holzschnitte mit dem Bleisatz zusammen gedruckt wurden, stärker abnutzten als die Bleibuchstaben und ausgetauscht werden mussten. Stand kein identisches Stück zur Verfügung, wich man auf andere Muster aus, so dass oft eine Auflage nicht in allen Exemplaren völlig identisch ist. Dies erschwert die Bestimmung von Fragmenten ungemein, da die Familienbibeln in Privatbesitz oft ihrer Titelblätter verlustig gingen. Wegen des sehr hohen Aufwandes, den die Weimarer Bibel erfordert hatte, gab Wolfgang Endter der Ältere 1656 eine kleinere Variante heraus, die unter der Verantwortung des eben genannten Nürnberger Pfarrers und Rhetorikers Johann Michael Dilherr (1604-1669) stand. Die Dilherr-Bibel garantierte den Endters die größten Erfolge. Von 1656 bis 1788 erschienen mindestens 29 Auflagen. Sie bieten den reinen Text der Luther-Bibel fortlaufend, eignen sich demnach auch zum Vorlesen in Kirche und Familie und sind durch ihre in den Text eingestreuten zweispaltigen Holzschnitte Bilderbuch zugleich.

        Austrian Album with original pencil drawings and cut-outs

      Salzburg, Wien, etc., 1841-1845. Full Leather Box. Very Good. Oblong, 9 by 16 cm. 24 leaves of content, 12 of which have original artwork. Two of the specimens of artwork are delicate folk art-ish cut-outs -- one, a seraph surrounded by a wreath, the other, a brown tree. The rest are pencil drawings, a few qualifying as exquisite miniatures. Of these, one is of a bridge and castle, another, a lodge atop a hill -- this one being executed with a folk art sensibility. One of the remaining images is of a barefoot beggar in a long coat. Especially pleasing to us is a drawing of a dagger of sorts inserted diagonally through a laurel. Such albums would appear incomplete without the requisite tombstone or monument and landscape with ruins, and both are present here. The album overall is fairly typical of the more attractive sort of Biedermeier period album amicorum. In this case, the box is especially lovely, with its inlays of red leather and extensive gilt ornamentation, not to mention its gilt edging. Also some blank sheets, with a ribbon pull housed within. Moderate wear generally.

Small monogram booklabels, WMC; bookseller's ticket: Simms & Dinham, Manchester. A v.g. handsome copy.Dickens wrote a new xii-page introduction for this edition, in which he challenged those who accused him of portraying social deprivation in too fine a detail. 'I saw no reason, when I wrote this book, why the very dregs of life ... should not serve the purpose of a moral, at least as well as its froth and cream. ... But there are people of so refined and delicate a nature, that they cannot bear the contemplation of these horrors. ... I have no desire to make proselytes among such people. I have no respect for their opinion ... do not covet their approval; and do not write for their amusement. I venture to say this without reserve; for I am not aware of any writer in our language having a respect for himself, or held in any respect by his posterity, who ever has descended to the taste of this fastidious class.'

        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. FIRST EDITION.

      B.D. Cousins. [1841] 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

        Ela, the Outcast; or, The Gipsy of Rosemary Dell. A romance of thrilling interest. By the Author of "Angelina ...".

      Printed & published by E. Lloyd. 1841 Illus; without the front. plate, some sl. browning. Sl. later half red roan; sl. rubbing at tail of spine. A good copy.In 104 pts with wood-cut illus. Ono did not possess a copy of the early Lloyd edition of this classic blood which was advertised in parts by May 1840, and provided Prest's trademark pseudonym 'Author of Ela'. The early parts carry the gutter imprints of J.K. Edwards, 44 Holywell Street, Strand; printed by J. Graves, 30 Curtain Road, Shoreditch. The preface of this edition is dated March 15th, 1841 and in it Prest states that the weekly sale has been 30,000 copies and that this is the "eighteenth edition". The edition statement may refer to reprinting of individual parts. (It is clear that the preface in Ono 478, Lloyd's 1850 edition, was set up from this edition.) The Preface refers to the dramatization by Marianne Denvil performed for 'nearly one hundred successive nights!' at the Pavilion Theatre. Prest has another tale in the press, which is probably 'Gallant Tom'. This copy has the booklabel of Arthur E. Waite.

The bond was payable at the interest of eight percent per annum (a rate not that dissimilar to the interest rates of today)…payable seminally on the first days of January and July. The production of the certificate was a joint venture between the “Southern Bank Note Co.” and “Endicott & Clark, New Orleans”, both of which have their imprints along the lower edge of the principal instrument. DeMorse accepted a commission in the Texas Navy but resigned in July 1836 to become a major in the army, where he received military training under Albert Sidney Johnston. When the army was disbanded in 1837 DeMorse entered law practice at Matagorda and later became the stock commissioner, charged with refunding the public debt, under President Mirabeau B. Lamar. He became the reporter for the Texas House of Representatives and was later elected Clarksville’s first mayor, and was a congressman-elect at the time of the annexation of Texas in 1845. During the Civil War, DeMorse organized and served as colonel of the 29th Texas Cavalry, a unit that fought in Arkansas and the Indian Territory. He was the commanding officer of the force at the battle of Poison Springs, near Camden, Arkansas, where an attempted Union advance was repulsed. In 1842 De Morse founded The Northern Standard, later renamed The Clarksville Standard, one of Texas' foremost newspapers, with his newspaper second in circulation among Texas newspapers and had agents as far away as Philadelphia, Boston and New York. He was often referred to as ""The Father Of Texas Journalism""A handsome piece, presenting well, with Texas roots submerged in history."

Housed in custom cloth slipcase. $9800.First editions of Emerson's first and second series of timeless essays, scarce in original cloth."Emerson's fame". rests securely upon the fact that he had something of importance to say, and that he said it with a beautiful freshness which does not permit his best pages to grow old". Let men but stand erect and 'go alone,' he said, and they can possess the universe" (ANB).

Lausanne: M. Ducloux, 1841. First edition. This is a classic work on the phenomenon of erratic blocks and the function of glaciers in transporting them. Charpentier's theory, delivered in a paper in 1834, was met with disbelief and scorn. "Undismayed, Charpentier continued his observations and invited the incredulous to visit him and see the evidence for themselves. Among his visitors was Louis Agassiz, who was soon carried away with such enthusiasm for the theory of the Ice Age that he visited a number of glaciers and blocks and rushed into print, ahead of Charpentier, with his Études sur les Glaciers (1840)…Charpentier received Agassiz' book on 28 October 1840, three days before he finished his own Essai sur les Glaciers, which was published in February 1841. The scrupulous care with which he weighed the evidence and described the phenomenon of erratic blocks and the function of glaciers in transporting them makes this book a classic."-D.S.B., III, p. 211. While Agassiz is generally credited with the origin of the theory of the Ice Age, the theory had in fact been developed long before by Charpentier. Very nice copy with a presentation inscription from the author on the upper wrapper: "à Monsieur Schwedler hommage de l'auteur" (the final four letters of "auteur" have been cropped by the binder's knife).

        Report of the Trial of the Action, Bogle Versus Lawson, For a Libel.

      1841 - One of the Most Detailed Accounts of a Major Nineteenth-Century Financial Swindle [Trial]. Hughes, W. Hughes, Editor. "The Times" Testimonal: Report of the Trial of the Action, Bogle Versus Lawson, For a Libel Published in "The Times" London-Newspaper, Tried at the Summer Assizes for the Country of Surrey, Held at Croydon, Monday, August 16, 1841, Before the Right Honourable Sir Nicholas Conyngham Tindal, Knt. Lord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas, And a Special Jury; Together with the Proceedings of a Public Meeting of Merchants, Bankers and Others, Held at the Mansion House, London, Friday, October 1, 1841, On the Subject of Such Action, And of the Committee then Appointed; And Also a List of Subscribers to "The Times" Testimonial. Published by the Committee. London: John Hatchard and Son, Henry Butterworth and Pelham Richardson, 1841. 179, [1] pp. Half-title lacking. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5"). Recent quarter cloth over marbled boards, printed paper title label to spine. Some toning to text, light soiling to title page. A nice copy of a rare title. * First edition. A sensational case of a million-pound plot to defraud continental bankers by forged letters of credit, or lettres circulaires, purporting to have been issued by the bankers Glyn, Hallifax, Mills, & Co. The plot was exposed by a Times of London correspondent in a letter, published in the newspaper on 26th May 1840, which referred to "the great forgery company established on the continent lately detected," and naming the co-conspirators. These included the Marquis of Bourbel, "the chief of the gang," the Baron Louis d'Arjuzon, alias De Castel, Pipe "an Englishman who professes to be a solicitor in London," and Cunningham Graham "an anonymous partner in the house of Bogle, Kerrich, and Co." The case was sensational in both social and in banking circles. It exposed the largely unregulated and certainly sloppy banking practices associated with letters of credit (easy to forge and difficult to police) and the almost brilliant ingenuity of an international gang of con men. The naming of Allan George Bogle-who was almost certainly involved-triggered this libel action against John Joseph Lawson, the printer and publisher of the Times, and resulted in the award of one farthing damages for Bogle, but enormous expense and the co [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Epitome, Historical and Statistical, Descriptive of the Royal Naval Service of England.

      London: Ackermann and Company, , 1841. With the assistance of Lieutenant Lawford Miles, R.N. Embellished with eight highly-finished, coloured, engraved views of shipping, by W. Knell, besides fourteen coloured illustrations of the flags, pendants, and ensigns, as worn by Her Majesty's ships and vessels in commission. Octavo. Original grey-green diaper-grain cloth, ornamental blind blocking on sides, gilt motif of the stern of a ship of the line on front cover, neatly rebacked with the original red skiver spine laid down, yellow coated endpapers. 8 hand-coloured aquatints, 14 hand-coloured illustrations of flags in the text. Spine a little rubbed, some wear to corners otherwise a very good copy. First edition. A most attractive work containing really spirited plates, with excellent colouring, engraved by Newton Smith Fielding after William Adolphus Knell. Knell had originally worked in "the popular Dutch seventeenth-century marine style, [but] in mid-career he shifted to an English manner to maintain his share of the market. The results were lighter and less heavy-handed pictures marked by translucent seas and broader handling in the skies. He specialized in inshore scenes of England, France, and the Low Countries" (ODNB). With the simple engraved bookplate of "Conygham": Albert Denison (formerly Conyngham), first Baron Londesborough (1805-1860), "enthusiastic antiquary", connoisseur of the arts and politician, "on 4 September 1849 he had taken the sole name of Denison, in lieu of that of Conyngham, to comply with the will of his uncle the banker and MP William Joseph Denison, whose enormous wealth he inherited" (ODNB).

      1841. 4to. 2 pp. With blindstamped monogram. To an addressee in Vienna (possibly Ignaz Bösendorfer?): "[...] Demandez à [Karl Georg] Likl auquel vous ferez bien mes amitiés, de prier de ma part le meilleur facteur de physharmonicas, de vouloir bien me prêter pendant 5 ou 6 mois un physharmonica qui devra m'être adressé le plus tôt qu'il le pourra chez Mr. Lefebre, 40 Cäcilien Strasse à Cologne. Je ne sais si je pourrai garder cet instrument mais en tout cas je voudrais l'avoir ce printemps à Cologne pour des raisons que je vous dirai plus tard. S'il était possible que le même facteur fabrique pour moi un instrument à deux claviers dont l'un Physharmonica, l'autre Pianoforte, et que moyennant je ne sais quel mécanisme on peut faire aller au besoin les deux claviers ensemble, cela m'enchanterait. Peut-être même pourrait-on poser les deux claviers sur une pédale de deux octaves - ce qui compléterait l'instrument. - Il va sans dire qu'il faut que le Piano soit excellent et le Physharmonica idem. Je désire aussi que le tout se fabrique sans qu'on dise que c'est pour moi et que Likl et vous me gardiez le plus absolu secret. Si la chose reuissit" (breaking off).

        Shocking Murder of Mr Adams--Our Printer--The Body Discovered

      1841. An Account of a New York City Murder Overlooked by McDade [Trial]. Colt, John [1810-1842], Defendant. "Shocking Murder of Mr Adams--Our Printer--The Body Discovered on Board a Vessel--Arrest of the Supposed Murderer, And Observations on the Character of Both, Showing them to be Creatures of Circumstances," The Herald of the New Moral World and Millennial Harbinger, Volume I, No. 17, New York, September 16, 1841, pp. 140-143. Article bound into a complete run of this publication, Volume I, No. 1 to Volume II, No.7. [292] pp. Quarto (10-3/4" x 8"). Contemporary quarter calf over pebbled cloth, gilt fillets, title (reading New Moral World) and volume number (reading Vol. I-II) to spine. Light rubbing to boards, corners bumped, joints cracked, spine abraded with a few large chips just below title and at spine ends. Moderate toning, darker in places, light foxing. Struck-through serial (?) number in small recent hand, interior otherwise clean. * This account is overlooked by McDade, who lists two other newspaper accounts. As the title indicates, Adams was the printer of the Herald of the New Moral World, a liberal general-interest non-denominational Christian periodical. The murderer, John C. Colt, who appears to have acted impulsively during an argument, was the brother of Samuel Colt, the notable gun manufacturer. (For some unknown reason Colt used an axe instead of a pistol.) His deed was discovered when he attempted to ship Adams's body to New Orleans in a crate, where his body would not be identified. For some reason, Samuel Colt promoted the value of his pistol during his testimony, even interrupting the proceedings with a demonstration. No one knows why the court allowed this. John Colt was convicted and sentenced to death. He married his girlfriend the night before his execution and escaped the hangman by stabbing himself in the heart on the following morning. This account is one of the few negative articles in the optimistic Herald, a fascinating publication filled with reports of inventions, discoveries, social improvements and other examples of human progress.
