        THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP, and Other Tales

      1841. With Numerous Illustrations by Cattermole and Browne. Philadelphia: Lea and Blanchard, 1841. Original purple-brown vertically-ribbed cloth, with spine lettering and vignette in gilt. First complete American Edition in book form. In 1840-1841 Lea & Blanchard issued in monthly parts THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP (as the first novel within "Master Humphrey's Clock," as in the U.K.); during serialization an edition containing the first twelve of the 21 parts was issued, with the title page dated 1840 and stating that there are 59 illustrations. At the conclusion of serialization, complete-novel copies dated 1841 were issued, as here. (There was another 1841 issue (Smith's "B") that has a portrait of Dickens and other minor differences; also, there would be later copies dated 1841 or 1842, with a different frontispiece illustration and with the additional mention of the illustrator Sibson.)~This copy (Smith's "A") begins with a frontispiece multi-scene plate (no portrait of Dickens), opposite a printed 1841 title page as shown above; this constitutes the first American edition of THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP. Following is another title page, reading "MASTER HUMPHREY'S CLOCK... with Ninety-One Illustrations by George Cattermole and Hablot Browne" -- with the verso blank (no Dedication). Then follows a Preface leaf and a List of Illustrations leaf. THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP ends on page 359, followed by the "Other Tales" -- four pages of material designed to transition into BARNABY RUDGE.~This copy is in the original purple-brown vertically-ribbed cloth (Smith's variant B), and is in near-fine condition (spine a little faded, minor cover soil, but very little wear). Smith pp 159-164 (the illustration is of this copy); Podeschi (Yale) A61; Carr (UTexas) B153.

        A selection of the Birds of Brazil.

      - London, Henry G. Bohn, 1841. 8vo (235 x 140mm). pp. (2), 4, with 78 fine hand-coloured lithographed plates. Later red half morocco, richly gilt decorated spine. "A series of 78 hand-coloured plates of Neotropical birds, with a list of species prefixed, giving English and Latin names" (Zimmer p. 616). Swainson is considered one of the best zoological artists of his time. "The authors of those books were clearly as much seduced by colour as were the book buyers. And in the context of the period, this is scarcely surprising. The world of nature can never before have seemed so colourful: from all parts of the globe came a seemingly endless succession of animals ." (Dance, The Art of Natural History p. 112). William John Swainson (1789-1855) was the first illustrator and naturalist to use lithography and he became one of the most important Victorian artists of the period publishing a number of beautifully illustrated zoological works. The present work was first issued in original parts from 1834-36? and according to Zimmer without text. A fine copy of this important work on the avi-fauna of Brazil.Nissen IVB, 912; Zimmer 616; Fine Bird Books p. 110. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"Over the course of six days in Leipzig, I sang three times, came here the other morning, where the next rehearsals were already awaiting me. Besides La Sonnambula and Romeo, I also sang Norma; all three performances were sold out. and applause was just what you would wish for in Germany. The Sonnambula was performed here for the first time. I confess that I enjoyed greatly making this dear opera known. The tenor Götze is very good and sang and acted with a passion. So the opera caused a big splash. I was called out twice, which, I was told, happens never, or at least only very rarely."Slightly soiled and foxed; minor tears and paper defects; creased at folds. Pixis was the foster-daughter of the pianist and composer Johann Peter Pixis (1788-1874), "who had recognized her vocal gifts. Pixis was her principal teacher, although she studied further with Josephine Fodor-Mainville, Henriette Sontag, Rossini and Paer. Her voice was powerful and sonorous, free from strain at louder dynamics and, when required, softly beautiful. Among her most renowned roles were Amina (La sonnambula), Romeo (I Capuleti e i Montecchi), Norma, Rosina (Il barbiere di Siviglia) and Gabriella (Mercadante's Gabriella di Vergy). Pixis conceived his operetta Die Sprache des Herzens for her, and Pacini wrote for her the leading role in his Saffo (1840)." Gaynor G. Jones et al in Grove online Madame Schubert, a coloratura soprano, was the wife of Franz Schubert (1808-1878), violinist and composer, eldest son of the composer and double bass player Franz Anton Schubert (1768-1827), and daughter of the Kapellmeister Georg Abraham Schneider (1770-1839) and singer Caroline Portmann. "She made her début in London in 1832 and was later a valuable, versatile member of the Dresden Opera, her range including soubrette and tragic roles." Grove online

        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 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 considerabl

        Papers of the Legislative Council of Van Diemen's Land, 1841

      Hobart Town: James Barnard, Government Printer, 1841. Scuffed at extremities and sympathetically rebacked retaining original label; internally very good indeed.. Foolscap folio, comprising 26 individually paginated sections; contemporary full roan, Diverse series of despatches and reports reflecting the dynamic and progressive administration of Sir John Franklin. Each of the 26 parts is separately paginated, for a full listing is see Ferguson 3314. Subjects include emigration, convict management, education, bushrangers and the building of water supply and civil works. The final report on emigration is the longest in the series, totalling some 82 pages, and is 'very important for information regarding emigration and the experiences of immigrants' (Ferguson).This volume is from the collection of Dr. Clifford Craig, with one of his characteristic typed notes tipped to the front endpaper regarding colonial cabinetmaker Charles Woolley. Craig's 'collection of old Tasmanian books, maps and prints was one of the finest ever assembled - some would argue it was the best. There is no argument that as a Tasmaniana collector, bibliophile, and author he has no peer' (Stitz Australian Book Collectors pp.72-73).
