PROUDHON, Pierre-Joseph.
Paris: Librairie de Prévot, 1841. 3 works in 1 volume, duodecimo (176 x 109 mm). Contemporary half calf, rebacked, red morocco label, erroneous date of 1641 at base of spine, marbled sides and endpapers. Half-titles present. Tips repaired with green calf, a few minor interior blemishes but contents generally clean, very light damp stain to last few leaves, some pages short and opened a little crudely. A very good copy. Second edition of the French anarchist philosopher's notorious thesis, together with the first editions of his two succeeding works, the "deuxième" and "troisième" memoirs. Qu'est-ce que la propriété? was first published in 1840, and shocked its readership with its famous assertion that "all property is theft", which remains widely cited among radical circles to this day. Proudhon himself referred to Qu'est-ce que la propriété? as a "diabolical work which frightens even me" (Correspondance I, p. 296), and he was called to defend himself against insurrection charges at his local court immediately after its publication. The distinguished economist Blanqui (1805-1881) was appointed by the Minister of Justice to read Proudhon's inflammatory treatise, and his review of it was partially reproduced by Le Moniteur on 7 September. Although he opposed the views that Proudhon adopted, Blanqui's judgement was ultimately favourable because he believed Proudhon to be a philosopher and inquirer rather than a serious revolutionary. Blanqui's verdict helped to lessen the insurrection charges brought against Proudhon and it was only because of his support that Proudhon was per … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary sammelband of UNC and other North Carolina pamphlets, by the landowner, railroad promoter, and representative of Lincoln County, N.C. in the state legislature.

He also writes on an Address delivered at East Tennessee College that "I was a student at this college-6 months- & boarded with Mrs Craighead- the sister in law of Dr. Ramsey the author of the history of [??] & who is a relative of Alexander & [??] family, of Maclenburg-1879-V.

HARRIS, William Cornwallis
London: William Pickering, 1841. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I can provide a link to many more photos. Just ask! 1841 Wild Sports of Southern Africa Harris 1st Big Game Hunting Book Illustrated William Cornwallis Harris was a 19th-century English explorer who is best remembered for his voyages to South Africa. In 1836, Harris ventured to South Africa where he spent nearly two years hunting antelope and following the leads of Matabele people. One of the defining traits of Harris, which differentiated him from other hunters, was that he illustrated the large African animals that he hunted, many of which were remarkably accurate for the time. The events of this expedition were published in a book entitled 'Wild Sports of Southern Africa' a work that featured Harris's own illustrations of animals and tribal people. And, while this book is fascinating in its own right, it is often considered to be the very first book written exclusive only big game hunting! This 1841 third edition is the first to include the complete collection of Harris's color plates. Item number: #6958 Price: $ 1500 HARRIS, William Cornwallis The wild sports of Southern Africa : being the narrative of an expedition from the Cape of Good Hope, through the territories of the chief Moselekatse, to the tropic of Capricorn London : William Pickering, 1841.

"An interesting book, combining lithographed line-drawings with more elaborate coloured lithographs. Gordon-Brown erroneously refers to the plates as coloured aquatints." TOOLEY 126. The attractive plates of hunting scenes illustrate sporting adventures on the Bontebok Flats in Kaffaria near the Kat River Settlement. The book was written and sketched on the spot, an early record of this part of South Africa by the author who served in the 59th Regiment. Interior contents bright and fresh, all plates with tissue guards, small book label, lower corners bumped, backstrip extremities slightly rubbed. Three quarter red calf and maroon cloth. Very good.

Gerard, the Late Capt Alexander
James Madden, London, 1841. Very large folding engraved map of Koonawur by Gerard (who was a surveyor) on a scale of approx 5 miles to 1 inch (in front pocket), xiii.308pp, xxvi Appendix including Latitude Tables, 2pp ads. Original publisher's brown cloth gilt with some very careful professional repair to joints, spine and corners, a remarkably good copy for a book of this age. This copy has a contemporary label to front pastedown "Baptist Missionary Society. Mission House Library" but the only other previous ownership markings are some numbers on the front free endpaper. The folding map has a few very small holes at intersections of folds and there are some notes in contemporary hands which appear to be made by someone who had also visited the area [to my mind these enhance rather than detract from the interest of the map].The text block, which includes the half title, is extremelyt clean The Gerard brothers were pioneering mountaineers and important writers on the area. To quote John Keay ("Where Mem & Mountains Meet" John Murray 1977): 'Three brothers from Aberdeen, James, Patrick, and Alexander Gerard, made their speciality the small corner of the range which was directly accessible from British controlled territory. This lay east of Simla, betweeen Moorcroft's 1812 route over the Niti La and his 1820 route through Kulu. Any penetration into Tibet proved impossible.

Liverpool: Printed by J. Tompkins, for Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, and Parley P. Pratt. By order of the translator, 1841. Liverpool: Printed by J. Tompkins, for Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, and Parley P. Pratt. By order of the translator, 1841. First European Edition. Leather bound. Very good. 643pp. Sextodecimo [14 cm] 3/4 brown leather with black cloth over boards, a hubbed gilt-tooled spine, and an added silver clasp. Black leather spine label with "The Book of Mormon" stamped in gilt. All edges gilt. The extremities are moderately rubbed, the boards are a bit bent, where the silver clasp has been applied, and the cloth on the boards is slightly rippled. There are occasional minor tidemarks in the margins of the pages at the beginning. This edition of the Book of Mormon was the first printed outside of the United States and the fourth overall. In A Descriptive Bibliography of the Mormon Church, Peter Crawley states that, "the 1841 edition is an important link in the genealogy of the Book of Mormon." The 1841 printing was a faithful reprint of the 1837 Kirtland edition. With the exception of the two Nauvoo editions, all subsequent Book of Mormon editions in English descend from this 1841 Liverpool edition. This is the first Book of Mormon to include an index. At a Conference in the spring of 1840, Heber C. Kimball, Brigham Young, and Parley P. Pratt were tasked with securing a copyright and printing the first British edition. The three men quickly took to their charges and within three weeks Young asked Smith's permission to begin printing. The men hired John … [Click Below for Full Description]

[JUVENILE LITERATURE] HAWTHORNE, Nathaniel
E.P. Peabody, 1841. First Edition. Distinguished copy, with provenance of two important collectors, of this scarce Hawthorne work - the second volume in his juvenile trilogy The Whole History of Grandfather's Chair (later issued together in one volume, 1851). Depending on authority, this is either the second printing (see BAL 7592b) or second edition (see Clark A8.2a). In the descriptive catalogue of his collection, Wilson writes of this copy: "A. Edward Newton's copy of the second issue, with his bookplate. It is the text of the first issue, and not of the second, which persists in later printings, which made me doubful of the accepted priority, and determined to have both" (see Wilson, Thirteen Author Collections, 1950). 16mo (13cm). Original publisher's brown ribbed cloth with printed paper label to front cover; 160pp. Binding uniformly faded, with spot of staining to front cover below title; thin crack to cloth at upper 1/2" of front joint. Internally clean and tight, with bookplates of both A. Edward Newton and Carroll A. Wilson. Earlier bookplate of J. Harson Purdy and partial remnant of a clipped auction listing adhered to front pastedown. Good or better. [Attributes: First Edition]

Documents include names of plaintiffs, defendants, justices, occasional other parties (sheriffs, clerks, etc), and usually the township in which the case was tried. Justices include William Crenshaw, John Goble, Charley W. Sitwell, James Kelly, John Moore, William Williams, Jonathan Graham, Jacob Kester, Jacob Brown, and many others. Most are from the years 1838 - 1841 (~85%). A nice cache of material documenting this era in Indiana history.

Notre blog : https://librairie-trois-plumes.blogspot.fr/ Notre mail : benoit@troisplumes.fr [Manuscrit] Hippolyte Conchon (1794-1865), Mémoires de Mr Conchon, maire de Clermont Ferrand sur les troubles de cette Ville en 1841. [Riom, 1844]. In-8, [6]-255p. Très rare manuscrit, peut-être autographe, de ces mémoires. Conchon fut en effet maire de Clermont-Ferrand de 1835 à 1843 et eut à subir de violentes émeutes les 9, 10 & 11 septembre 1841 lors du recensement. La municipalité, ne faisant qu'encadrer le recensement, suspendit l'opération et Conchon alla au-devant des manifestants, place de Jaude (où se trouvait sa maison). Il fut agressé, on lui jeta des pierres et il dut s'enfuir. Sa maison fut pillée et incendiée. La seconde partie du manuscrit (à partir de la page 161) est intitulée « Mon voyage à Paris - Histoire du Procès à l'occasion des troubles et de celui de la Gazette d'Auvergne ». On connait une autre copie de ce manuscrit, conservé à la bibliothèque du Patrimoine de Clermont-Ferrand (côte MS 2503). Les mémoires ont été publiées en 2017 par les Presses Universitaires Blaise Pascal, vraisemblablement d'après le manuscrit de la bibliothèque du Patrimoine. Reliure plein chagrin noir, dos à nerfs.

WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON
Baltimore: John Murphy, 1841. On a cold, wet day, March 4, 1841, President Harrison delivered the longest inaugural address in history. Harrison wrote the entire speech himself, though it was edited by his soon-to-be Secretary of State, Daniel Webster. Webster said afterwards that in the process of editing the text, he had "killed seventeen Roman proconsuls." Contracting pneumonia, Harrison became the first president to die in office 31 days after delivering this address. His vice president John Tyler became the new president and served out Harrison's term.In an 8,460-word address, Harrison presents a detailed statement of the Whig agenda and a repudiation of the populism and policies of Democratic Presidents Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren. Harrison promises to reestablish the Bank of the United States, to issue paper currency, to use his veto power sparingly, and to appoint qualified officers of government in contrast to the spoils system that Jackson heralded. He favors term limits, limits on the powers of the presidency, and devotion to the nation rather than party. Harrison avoids specifics on the divisive issue of slavery, which in theory he might have opposed, but of which he was in practice a staunch defender. WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON.Inaugural Address.

Higgins, W. Mullingar
Thomas Kelly, London. London, Thomas Kelly, 1841. First edition. Quarto. [6], 233pp, [1]. Illustrated with 30 full page plates, vividly hand-painted in over-varnished oil paint, of examples of wood graining and marbling effects described within the text. A scarce work published as a guide to house painters on the basic principles of mixing paint pigments to achieve specific colours and the techniques used to create the impression of faux wood grains and marble styles on painted surfaces. The text goes into great detail on the types of pigment available at the time, types of varnish and their application and the tools and techniques required to achieve the faux wood and marble effects. Attractively bound in contemporary half calf with cloth sides, marbled endpapers and full gilt decoration to the spine. As is almost always the case with this specific publication, there have been problems with the tissue guards between each plate adhering to the varnished surface of some of the plates. Consequently, a few of the tissue guards have been professionally replaced with modern acid-free substitutes and there is light surface damage to four of the plates resulting in a small amount of loss to the surface of each plate. A fifth plate has suffered more extensive surface damage with loss to around a third of the design and this plate has been backed onto thin handmade paper. Otherwise, a clean copy of a scarce work with the text block sound, the plates vividly coloured and the binding in very good condition. Further photographs are available on request.

HOREAU Hector
Possibly a unique copy. 2nd edition, in a smaller format (wide in-4) of the 1841 elephant folio. Lefebvre, Paris, ca. 1860. This edition is so rare that we haven't been able to locate any other copy worldwide. Folio, 1 leave of text, 28 plates with 48 photographic reproductions of the original engravings related to Egypt, with the addition of one which was not in the original edition (Vue des Colosses d'Amenophis III). Contemporary hardcover, no text, only a first (detached) page listing the photographs. Plates are slightly ondulated, otherwise a fine copy. Hector Horeau was trained at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts between 1819 and 1822, and was a student in the ateliers of E. Ch. Nepveu and F. Debret. From 1821, he first worked as an illustrator and amongst his commissions was drawing the plates for F. Cailliaud's "Voyage a Meroe (1826-7)". In 1825 he received his first commission as an architect, and architecture remained his main interest and occupation for the rest of his life, working on both private and public projects in France and England.During the first part of his life he travelled extensively around Europe (Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, England, Russia and Sweden) and Egypt. In Egypt, 1837-39, he visited the entire country including Nubia. From Alexandria he went to Cairo, explored the site of Giza, hired a boat to Luxor and went up the Nile to Abu Simbel. To achieve the beautiful illustrations of the book, he mentions in the subscription bulletin that "drawings made on site and the benevolent communications of daguerreotype views, have allowed me to achieve … [Click Below for Full Description]

Grey, George
London: T&W Boone, 1841. First edition. Hardcover. Very good - condition. A fine large paper copy of these important expeditions of discovery to the north-west of Western Australia. "Both the journeys of exploration described in these volumes were undertaken for the Royal Geographical Society. They met with disasters. The first expedition landed near Hanover Bay, and made the discovery of a river and much useful territory. In a skirmish with the natives Grey was badly wounded by a spear and was forced to abandon the expedition. He killed his attacker and was to suffer from both the wound, a hole big enough to fit a child' hand, and the killing for the rest of his life. The second journey was for the exploration of the west coast, north and south of Shark's Bay. The Gascoyne River was discovered, but a hurricane damaged their stores, their boats were wrecked and the party had to set off for an overland tramp of three hundred miles to Perth. (Ferguson). He shot the aborigine who speared him and was to suffer from both the wound (a hole big enough to fit a child's hand), and the killing for the rest of his life.The production of Grey's volumes was of very high quality. The color illustrations of aboriginal cave paintings are haunting; the maps are by John Arrowsmith, the master of English cartography in that period; John Gould, the father of Australian ornithology, contributed appendices on birds. This is primary issue with all the advertisements listed in Ferguson.
