1842. Template | Trixum Beschreibung Greiz in Thüringen, mit prächtiger Ansicht von Schleiz - Album amicorum. Freundschaftsalbum in Kassettenform aus der Fabrikanten-Familie Schilbach aus Greiz in Thüringen, mit dem Rückentitel "Souvenir". Thüringen, 1842-1852. circa 9,6 x 17,2 cm. 45 Blätter mit ganzseitiger Vedute in Gouache, 16 Aquarellminiaturen, 2 kleinen Bleistiftzeichnungen, 4 Blatt mit altkolorierten graphischen Darstellungen in Kupferstich und Lithographie, rosa Bändchen sowie Haarlocke Leder-Kassette d. Zt., mit reicher Blindprägung und Vergoldung, die losen Blätter mit Goldschnitt. - Sehr schön ausgestattetes Album mit ca. 45 Einträgen aus Bärenwalde, Dölau, Greiz, Plauen, Schleiz und anderen Orten. Das Stammbuch eines Angehörigen der Thüringer Familie Schilbach, die in Greiz bis 1930 eine Wollwarenfabrikation betrieb, gegründet vom Kommerzienrat Heinrich Schilbach senior (1828-1905). Die Firmengebäude sind bis heute erhalten und zeugen von der einstigen Bedeutung der 1850 gegründeten Firma, also zur Zeit des vorliegenden Stammbuchs. Ein Eintrag hat die Großmutter des Eigners, eine Wilhelmine E. Schilbach, 1843 angefertigt, wohl Wilhelmine Ernestine Schilbach, geborene Lorenzin (1777-1859). Da sich einige Mitschüler des Eigners eingetragen haben, ist anzunehmen, daß er zur Zeit der Anlegung des Albums etwa zehn bis 15 Jahre alt gewesen ist. Laut eines maschinenschriftlichen Deckblattes soll es sich bei ihm um Wilhelm Eduard Karl Schilbach (1830-1913) handeln, Sohn des Heinrich Eduard Schilbach, geboren 1806 in Greiz. Der Stammbucheigner wäre damit der jüngere Bru … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scarce thus. Listing note: "Not one of Dickens' books was the subject of so much adverse criticism as the book he wrote after his return from America in 1842" (Eckel). Although complimentary of the United States in many ways, Dickens antagonised a large portion of his readership by his criticisms of the penal system, the lack of copyright and subsequent pirating of English works, and the entire system of slavery.

DICKENS, Charles
London: Chapman and Hall, 1842. First edition, first issue. Two volumes. 8vo. (xii), 308; (viii), 306, (6) pp., a few gatherings unopened. Publisher's blind stamped cloth, gilt lettered to the spine, early armorial bookplate of a Henry Birkbeck to the front pastedowns and his lightly pencilled ownership inscription to the front free endpaper of volume I, the discreet contemporary ticket of the bookseller Fletcher of Norwich to the front of the same volume. Some fading to the spine, a very small superficial split to the cloth at foot of the lower joint of volume I, though it remains sounds and the set is very good overall. The result of a four month lecture tour of the States and Canada during which Dickens' opinions of the new world fell steadily. On his return it proved popular on this side of the Atlantic while American reviews were unanimously hostile, Emerson noting "Truth is not his object for a single instant.". Dickens composed a mollifying Preface which was removed at the last minute and not published until after his death. In it he states "I went there expecting greater things than I found. Coming home with a corrected and sobered judgement, I consider myself no less bound to do justice to what. I found to be the truth". Smith, II, 3. [Attributes: First Edition]

ROBERTS, David.
London. 1842-9. Size: 328 x 488 mm. Very good condition. Unobtrusive blind stamp. Tinted lithograph. Additional hand colouring. Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo and three full sketchbooks, enough material to "serve me for the rest of my life" (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, Travel). These lithographs were originally published in twenty parts, most parts containing six plates, the price for each part with coloured plates (the most expensive state) being 3 guineas. F.G. Moon. Sketches in Egypt and Nubia, from Drawings made on the Spot. Abbey, Travel, 272; Gay 2216; Ibrahim-Hilmy, II, p.176; Lipperheide 1591; Tooley (1954) 402.

Verlags-Comptoir des Nueun Gesangbuchs, Stuttgart, 1842. First edition. Leather ruled in giltand inset with a glass-bead decorated floral pattern on the front and rear boards. Later gift inscription in German, modest rubbing and wear at the corners, slight foxing, a very good plus copy. Apparently a songbook prepared for the 25th anniversary of the reign of the King of Wurttemberg, printing lyrics with a title index, an index of composers, and brief biographical information. Notable mostly for the very unusual binding of tiny glass beads worked into with floral patterns on a black background, with beads of blue, gold, and green, surrounded by a stylized leaf pattern in two shades of green. A few of the tiny beads are missing at the margins, but the decoration is sound and stable, and is otherwise unflawed. An unusual binding, and a lovely book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

BURNES, Sir Alexander.
London: John Murray, 1842. London: John Murray,, 1842. Bokhara Burnes Octavo. Original slate green fine diaper-grain cloth, gilt-lettered spine with blind banding, sides with ornamental blind paneling, pale primrose yellow-coated endpapers. Single-tint lithographic frontispiece and 5 similar lithographic plates, one plain lithographic portrait printed on India paper and mounted, 2 folding lithographic plates of antiquities, a steel-engraved portrait of Burnes by Edward Finden after Daniel Maclise, and 2 wood engravings. Neat contemporary ownership inscription at head of title page, "W. Henderson". Binding a little rubbed, a few old marks to covers, back cover slightly mottled, inner hinges neatly strengthened, some foxing, large dark bloom of foxing in gutter at head in the early part of the book, extending to about a quarter of the way through; despite these faults this remains a presentable, sound, copy in the original cloth, with the publisher's 8-page catalogue at the end (dated April 1842). First edition of this posthumously published and attractively illustrated account of the author's remarkable experiences serving as an intelligence officer in India and Afghanistan during the early days of the Great Game. Burnes excelled at political work. His linguistic ability combined with adventurousness, boundless self-confidence, and a certain diplomatic guile earmarked him for delicate political duties. Throughout the 1830s political opinion in London and Calcutta worried increasingly about Russian expansion in central Asia and Burnes seemed the ideal man to gather infor … [Click Below for Full Description]

LAWRENCE, Henry Montgomery.
Some passages in the life of an adventurer in the Punjab. Originally published in the Delhi Gazette.Delhi, Gazette Press, by Kunniah Lall, 1842. 8vo. With a loosely inserted letterpress printed "Note by the publishers" declaring that in hindsight the publisher would have preferred this edition in larger dimensions and in 2 volumes, but the printer lacked understanding of "the art of book printing". Also included is a manuscript note with bibliographical information relating to Indian printing. Contemporary half red roan with gold-tooled title on spine, marbled sides. [IV], [III], 275 pp. First edition of one of the first titles published by the Gazette Press in Delhi and printed by Kunniah Hall. The content is a collection of articles that were previously published in the Delhi Gazette, written by Brigadier-General Sir Henry Montgomery Lawrence. He was an advocate for the independence of Punjab and died while defending that in Lucknow, earning the nickname "Lawrence of Lucknow". The book offers a wealth of information on the Punjabs in the form of fictionalised memoirs of Colonel Bellasis, providing many hardly known details about the region and people to the Western reader. Therefore it is of great importance. The present first edition is very rare, WorldCat only offers 3 copies worldwide and we traced 2 more copies in Oxford and the British Library.From the library of Edward Thornton (1799-1875), with his owner's inscription on the front paste-down.

Disbound. Very good. RARE. First American issue. Also published, "On asphyxia, and on the resuscitation of still-born children," London Medical Gazette, vol. 29 (5 November 1841): pp. 222-27. / Between 1839 and 1841 Snow experimented with a guinea pig, suffocating the creature and then beginning a dissection. He found that an hour after death that he perceived a "slight vermicular motion in the right auricle. He opened the trachea and began artificial respiration. The heart's ventricles began to move, and through the coast of the left atrium (the chamber that receives blood from the lungs) he could see oxygen-rich, bright red blood. The heart continued to contract weakly, unable to expel blood from its chambers, but it kept beating rhythmically for forty-five minutes. … This particular experiment took place in the course of his investigations into respiration and asphyxia, undertaken with the desire to establish the physiological basis for pulmonary resuscitation on infants." Snow was witnessing one in twenty births being stillborn, many of whom were asphyxiated. Many methods of resuscitating were tried, including electrical shock, mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, etc. "Snow surmised that the line between life and death was not fixed, and the heart retained its irritability (its ability to be stimulated by oxygen) beyond death." With this study done, Snow's recommendation was to … [Click Below for Full Description]

TORNERO, Recaredo Santos.
1842. IX, [1 blank], [1], [1 blank], 495, [1] pp.First and only edition of the first lavishly illustrated description of Chile, by Recaredo Santos Tornero (1842-1902), a Chilean editor and journalist. He covers several historical, topographic and political aspects, all extensive and richly illustrated. The more than 200 woodcuts and 10 lithographs show not only important Chilean people such as president Federico Errázuriz, but also views of cities, landscapes, buildings, indigenous people, costumes etc. This historical, political, industrial, social and statistical review of Chile received an award at the 1876 Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia.Tornero was born in Valparaiso to a family of printers, and his father Santos Tornero owned the first public bookstore in Chile. From 1867 to 1870 Recaredo succeeded his father as director of the newspaper publishing house El Mercurio established in Valparaiso in 1827. During a short stay in Paris in 1871, he contacted the Paris printing firm Lemercier for the lithographs in his Chile ilustrado. The work is dedicated to Vicuña Mackenna (1831-1886), who was a Chilean writer, journalist, historian and politician, and at that moment mayor of Santiago (1872-1875).With an owner's inscription on the first silk endpaper ("Valparaiso, Agosto 27, 1878, Camilo Bayle") and another by the same hand ("Camilo Bayle") on the second endpaper. Binding slightly rubbed, corners bumped. Some very slight browning, some of the flyleaves a little worn, otherwise in very good condition.l Palau XXIII, 334589.

PHILOSOPHY] PHILOKALIST [pseud. Felix Paul Wierzbicki
E.P. Peabody, 1842. First Edition. Attributed to Wierzbicki, the Polish-American veteran of the November Uprising during the Polish-Russian War and later a Forty-Niner best known for publishing the first English-language book in California, "California As It Is and As it May Be; or, A Guide to the Gold Region" (1849). This title attributed to him in the Dictionary of Anonymous and Pseudonymous English Literature (see OCLC no. 2777123), the Preface signed "F.P.W., Rhode Island" (p. 4) and the title submitted to Congress by a J.P. Wierzbicki. The text consists of a dialogue between "Rudolph" and "Conrad," the former arguing for the innate goodness of man, while the latter believes man's goodness is inspired by external forces. Exceedingly scarce, we find no copies in the trade or auction records as of April, 2019. 12mo (18cm.); publisher's brown blind-embossed cloth, upper cover lettered in gilt, brown endpapers; 160pp. Light shelf wear, tiny loss at spine foot, some foxing to preliminaries, contemporary ownership signature to front flyleaf, else a Very Good and sound copy.

Braid, James
[Manchester], 1842. Ink on paper, 22 lines. 1 vols. 8vo. Old folds. Ink on paper, 22 lines. 1 vols. 8vo. "My Dear Sir / I called yesterday but you were out. I wished to invite you to a conversazione at my house this evening at 7 oC, where besides exhibiting explaining my modes of inducing thephenomena, I expect a number of patients to be present who have been cured or relieved by the Neuro Hypnotic operations. I wish to afford those present an opportunity of judging for themselves as to the real facts of the cases free from all partiality or bias on my part as the offering of this new agency. / [...] to be / very respectfully / yours / Jas Braid" The present letter dates from a period of active discovery and public debate about the topic of Hypnotism, a term coined by James Braid (1795-1860), "the founder of modern hypnotism," a couple of months earlier. It is here rendered as three distinct words, "Neuro Hypnotic operation."During magnetist Charles Lafontaine's English tour of 1841, Braid was allowed, as a medical man, to examine the magnetised subjects and he witnessed that the phenomena was not being faked, determined to study the nature of the effects and their causes. Braid immediately began auto-experimentation at home that refuted the idea of an operator's 'magnetic influence,' but confirmed that the process did indeed generate a 'particular physiological state.' Braid began a series of five public lectures to exhibit his findings just one week after Lafontaine's last demonstration. He was attacked as a necromancer and satanic agent in April 1842, in a well-att … [Click Below for Full Description]

Washington, D.C., 1842. 2 pp. 1 vols. 4to. Laid into a green cloth chemise. 2 pp. 1 vols. 4to. Reading in part, "In regard to Mr. Tyler's measures of nomination; I feel every disposition to support both when I can do so without a violation of principle; but I cannot approve his Exchequer project. Indeed it has but few, -very few friends in either party. As it was originally presented by the Secretary of the Treasury (Walter Forward), I considered it more dangerous if possible than a National Bank ... Nothing has yet authentically transpired of the character of Lord Ashburton's negotiations. He is very pacific in his conversation; I have no doubt he sincerely desires to preserve the peace between the two countries, but we cannot yet form any decided opinion at what may be the results ... One of the greatest evils under our system is the unreasonable length of the sessions of Congress. We have now been in session nearly six months and the House have not yet begun to consider the tariff question ..." Tyler's Exchequer Project was a plan presented to Congress in December, 1841, which envisioned a public banking institution directed by a non-partisan Board of Control. "Lord Ashburton's negotiations", conducted with Daniel Webster, ha adopted a compromise northern boundary of Maine.

DUMAS, Alexandre)
Richard Bentley. 1842. Functionally bound in later dark green half calf, green cloth boards, paper labels; worn & repaired. SCARCE. La Comtesse de Salisbury, 1839. An unacknowledged translation of one of Dumas' earliest historical novels. It is set in the Court of Edward III during the earlier stages of the Hundred Years War. The dedication, to Thomas Moore, is signed 'E.R.M. London, April, 1840'; perhaps the translator, but not identified. The third volume, despite having The Countess of Salisbury on the titlepage, contains, as issued, a separate novel, also an unacknowledged translation of a Dumas work: The Maid of Corinth. The French title is Acté, first published in 1838. This appears to be a re-issue of the first English edition of 1840, with newly printed titlepages which for some reason do not mention the second work. No 1842 edition appears on Copac, though four copies of an 1840 edition are listed with the title as The Countess of Salisbury : to which is added, The Maid of Corinth. Dumas is not identified as the original author. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Sketches illustrating the manners and customs of the Indians and Anglo Indians.London, Thomas McLean, 1842. Large folio (54,5 x 37,5 cm.). With 6 hand coloured lithograph plates and a lithographed title. Contemporary half calf with cloth sides, gold tooled title on front cover. [16] pp; [6] plates. First and only edition of an ethnographic study of native Indian people by William Tayler (1808-1892), who was at that time Acting Salt Agent of the Central Division of Cuttack for the East India Company. He dedicated his work to "Lady William Bentinck" (born Lady Mary Acheson 1809-1850), who was the wife of the Governor-General of India. The illustrations were drawn by Tayler himself, who was an amateur artist and drew much of the Indian daily life that he encountered. He selected the present 6 drawings to be published and had them lithographed by J. Bouvier. The first 3 plates not only show the ways of Indian people, but even more so the luxurious life of the English in India. The first plate, The Young Civilian's Toilet shows a young man relaxing while being treated by several servants, who are named Anglo-Indians. The room is strewn with objects of leisure. The next 2 plates, The Young Ladies Toilet & The Breakfast show equal scenes. The other 3 plates are more ethnographic in nature, showing native Indians in their everyday life: Women grinding at the mill; the Sunyasees (Sannyasis) & The village barber. Tayler later became a controversial figure for his excessively harsh oppression of Indian people when he was the commissioner of Patna.Spine and covers slightly worn, pages … [Click Below for Full Description]

Although the title page announces 32 engraved plates, only 17 were included, as demonstrated by the list at the end of volume five. Hume's monumental History is "the first attempt at a comprehensive treatment of historic facts, the first to introduce the social and literary aspects of a nation's life as only second in importance to its political fortunes, and the first historical writing in an animated yet refined and polished style" (Encyclopædia Britannica [11th edn] XIII, 878). The History became a popular classic within Hume's lifetime and did more than any of his other works to make his name known to the general reading public.

He kupu wakatupato, ...[Paiha (New Zealand), Mission Press], 1842. 8vo. Never sewn, stitched or bound. 7, [1] pp. First edition, printed in New Zealand in the Maori language, of the anti-Catholic missionary William Colenso's account of the order of service followed by the Anglican Bishop of London for the reception of three Roman Catholic priests.

When the press printed his own works, however, it is possible that he once again played a larger role.With a small hole repaired, slightly tattered at the edges and minor foxing and stains, but still in good condition.
