      Smith and Robins, London 1842 - xxiv, 250 p.: 1 leaf of engraved portrait of Horace Walpole, in-text illustrations; 29 cm. Later 19th-century brown cloth spine with original boards. Engraved cover title: A Catalogue of the Contents of Strawberry Hill. Engraved title page. George Robins, the auctioneer, advertised the sale to begin on April 25, 1842, and continue for 24 days. However, the original plan to sell some of the prints, drawings, and illustrated books in large lots was altered, so the contents originally proposed for the seventh and eight days of the sale were withdrawn, recatalogued in smaller lots, and sold later. As many as 7 editions of the catalog are known. This edition includes descriptions of contents through day 24, omitting days 7 and 8; the 6th day concludes with lot 160, omitting the Waldegrave manuscripts (originally lots 161- 187).

Inscription on p. xxi dated Jan. 7 1855 by John Robinson, who relates taking nuts from the chestnut trees at Strawberry Hill (said to have been planted by Horace Walpole) at the time of the sale and planting the resulting trees in Kinnington Park. Part of the last line of the inscription was lost when the pages were trimmed during the later 19th-century rebinding. Robinson's name is also written on the front board. He is identified by Sotheran as Sir John Charles Robinson (1824-1913). with documents from the 2002 sale of the catalog by Henry Sotheran, London. Gift inscription on front free endpaper from Guy Lacy Schless to Nancy Schless, 2002.

        Autograph letter signed discussing photography

      1842 - Herschel, John F. W. (1792-1871). Autograph letter signed to an unidentified correspondent [Samuel Hunter Christie (1784-1865)]. Collingwood [House, Hawkhurst], December 21, 1842. 3pp. 122 x 98 mm. Very good.Excellent letter discussing photographic researches from Sir John Herschel, whose intensive investigations in photography and photochemistry during the late 1830s and early 1840s led to enormous advances in the field in its earliest days. Herschel coined the terms "positive" and "negative," invented new photographic processes and improved existing ones, and experimented with color reproduction.Herschel's letter begins with a discussion of his latest photographic work:"Having had 2 days fine sun I have prepared specimens of photographs illustrative of the last paragraphs of my paper about the mercurial preparations and of a process not yet described that results of which if they will keep appear to me of great beauty. May I request you to direct them to be placed on the library table or otherwise submitted for inspection of such members as they may interest on Thursday and then added to the collection of my other specimens in Mr. Robertson's hands with a request that he will keep them together."Herschel refers here to one of the two important papers on photography that he submitted to the Royal Society in 1842: "On the action of the rays of the solar spectrum on vegetable colours, and on some new photographic processes" (Philosophical Transactions 132 [1842]: 181-214) and "On certain improvements on photographic processes described in a former communication, and on the parathermic rays of the solar spectrum" (Philosophical Transactions 133 [1843]: 1-6). These papers discussed Herschel's photochemical experiments with a wide range of organic and metallic materials, and announced his invention of two new photographic processes: the gold-based chrysotype and the cyanotype, an iron-based method using potassium ferricyanide. This last process, which produces white images on a blue ground directly onto paper, is the ancestor of the modern blueprint. Herschel described the working details of these processes fully in his second paper, to which he is likely referring in the present letter. The "process not yet described" probably refers to Herschel's experimental and ultimately unsuccessful mercury-based photographic process, which he christened "celanotype." Herschel's correspondent was mathematician and physicist Samuel Hunter Christie, who made important contributions to the study of magnetism; he served as secretary of the Royal Society from 1837 to 1843. See Schaaf, Out of the Shadows (1992), chs. 3-5 for a detailed discussion of Herschel's photographic researches, including excerpts from his unpublished scientific notebooks.

        Encampment of the Aulad-Said. February, 18th 1839.

      London. 1842-9 - Size: 425 x 605 mm. Very good condition. Unobtrusive blind stamp. Original 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. The Holy Land, Syria., from Drawings made on the Spot. London: F.G. Moon. Abbey, Travel, 272; Gay 2216; Ibrahim-Hilmy, II, p.176; Lipperheide 1591; Tooley (1954) 402.

        [Péhriska-Rúhpa. A Minatarre or big-bellied Indian

      Paris, Coblenz and London, 1842. A very rare proof before letters. There are two distinct states of this image: one with three small figures in the mid-ground to the right of the main figure, and a second where these figures have been removed A powerful portrait of Péhriska-Rúhpa ('Two Ravens') presents the warrior and chief of the Hidatsa as a figure of great dignity. He adopts an attitude that would have been familiar to all men of power and rank, his worth displayed symbolically in his clothing and adornment. His shirt is trimmed with bands of bright yellow quillwork, elaborately fringed with ermine, locks of human hair and dyed horsehair. He wears a striped woolen breechclout and quilled leggings of deer skin. Around his neck is a necklace of bear claws, fastened to an otter-skin band and spaced with blue and white beads. Symbols of great wealth, these necklaces were made from the foreclaws of grizzly bears, preferably from animals taken in the spring when the claws were large comparatively unworn and showing white tips. A decorated buffalo robe over one shoulder and arm, Péhriska-Rúhpa holds his decorated pipe in the crook of his other arm. This is one of Bodmer's masterpieces of portraiture, and was carried out during the travellers' winter stop-over at Fort Clark in 1833-1834 Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1. Aquatint engraving by Paul Legrand after Bodmer, proof before all letters, state with three figures in the background.

        Naturgetreue Abbildungen der vorzüglichsten essbaren, giftigen und verdächtigen Pilze, mit besonderer Rücksicht auf die verschiedenen Altersstufen von der ersten Entwickelung bis zum ausgebildeten Wachsthume.

      - Dresden, Adler & Dietze, 1842-45. 4to (304 x 230mm). pp. x, (2, register), 136, with 1 plain and 80 handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary green half morocco, spine in 6 compartments with gilt lettering. A very fine copy of one of the rarest German books on fungi. The last copy we sold was in 1958. Carl August Friedrich Harzer was a German naturalist and artist at Dresden, initiator and co-founder of the Dresden society 'Iris'. According to Stafleu and Cowan this is the second issue imprint. In the preface by Ludwig Reichenbach the following is written: "Mit viel Vergnügen habe ich die herrlichen Abbildungen des Herrn A. Harzer gesehen und habe mich überzeugt, dass derselbe auch dem Studium der Pilze, die ausgezeichnete Sorgfalt zugewendet hat, welche wir schon seit langer Zeit an seinen entomologschen Darstellungen bewundern. Aus diesen Abbildungen sieht man, was das bedeutet, wenn sich das Talent der Beobachtung, des Zeichnen, und Lithographirens in einer Person vereinigt".

        The Oracle of Reason, Or, Philosophy Vindicated [And Trials]

      1842 - Two Notable British Trials for Blasphemy, And Their Context [Trials]. [Freedom of the Press]. The Oracle of Reason: Or, Philosophy Vindicated. Volume 1. London: Thomas Paterson, 1842. Numbers 1-52 (with Supplements to Numbers 6 and 52). Complete. Text in parallel columns. [Bound with] Holyoake, George Jacob [1817-1906], Defendant. The Trial of George Jacob Holyoake, On an Indictment for Blasphemy, Before Mr. Justice Erskine, And a Common Jury, At Gloucester, August the 15th, 1842. From Notes Specially Taken by Mr. Hunt; The Authorities Cited in the Defence Being Quoted at Full Length. London: Printed for "The Anti-Persecution Union," by Thomas Paterson, [1]842. 68 pp. [And] Southwell, Charles, Defendant. Carpenter, William, Reporter. The Trial of Charles Southwell, (Editor of "The Oracle of Reason"), For Blasphemy. Before Sir Charles Wetherall, Recorder of the City of Bristol, January the 14th, 1842. Specially Reported. London: Hetherington, 1842. iv, 104 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlets bound into contemporary cloth, gilt title to spine. Some rubbing to extremities with wear to corners and spine ends, faint inkstains and dampstaining to boards. Moderate toning to text, occasional foxing, internally clean. Unique. * After breaking away from Robert Owen's socialist movement, Southwell opened a free-thought bookshop in Bristol with William Chilton and John Field in 1841. Holyoake joined him the following year. Southwell and Holyoake went on to establish the Oracle of Reason, a periodical devoted to atheism. After a year the authorities had enough of their publication, and the two editors were tried for blasphemy. Both were acquitted and their trials stand as landmarks in the history of free speech. In 1851 Holyoake would be the defendant in the last blasphemy trial in Great Britain. Our volume is notable because it combines a complete run of the first year of the Oracle with the two trials it provoked. (Publication of the Oracle ceased at the end of 1843). Both trial accounts are scarce, individual issues and a complete runs of Volume 1, are rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Life of Jesus, or a Critical Examination of His History. 4 vols bound as 2.

      Henry Hetherington. Joseph Taylor, London and Birmingham - 4 vols bound as 2. Portrait frontis of author to Vol 1. Modern half-morocco gilt with raised bands and marbled boards. Marbled edges. There is an anonymous translator's address. I cannot find any record of who the translator was; various scholars have endeavoured to idenify him/her without success. This is the true first English edition published between 1842 and 1844 translated from the third German edition. It is exceptionally scarce and one of the most important books of the 19th Century; a milestone in the growth of sceptical thought which has continued to this day. The Chapman Bros., 1846 edition (translated by George Eliot) is often incorrectly claimed as the first English edition. There are a couple of small library stamps in the beginning of each book. Two attractive volumes.

      Paris: Goupel & Vibert, 1842.. [10],26pp. plus thirty-two tinted lithograph plates on twenty-five sheets. Plates mounted on cloth stubs, guards throughout. The preliminary leaves are as follows, in order: engraved title, tinted lithographic pictorial title, lithographic dedication to Louis Philippe, lithographic facsimile of letter from Borget to Louis Philippe, contents leaf. Large folio. Contemporary three-quarter brown morocco and cloth, gilt, expertly rebacked with original spine laid down. Edges rubbed. Very good. An important and early record of the landscape and people of Hong Kong, Macao, and Canton. Borget, who was a pupil of Jean-Antoine Gudin and a close friend of Honoré de Balzac, journeyed around the world in 1836, travelling through South America and Hawaii before reaching the China coast in August 1838. In the fall of 1838, fellow artist William Prinsep went sketching with Borget in Macao, remarking that he found the Frenchman's portfolio "rich with scenes from South America, Sandwich Islands and China, and he was a pleasant fellow into the bargain." He continued his circumnavigation in July 1839 with a visit to Manila, and then sailed for India via Singapore and the Straits of Malacca, eventually returning to Paris in the summer of 1840. "The feeling of superiority to the Chinese, so characteristic of accounts from the 1840s, is absent here. The artist observes with a fresh eye" -Lust. The plates include five specific Hong-Kong views, and the others relate to Macao and Canton and the Pearl River. "In 1842, [Borget's] collection LA CHINE ET LES CHINOIS was published, and is regarded by many as the finest European pictorial record of China" -Howgego. An English version (SKETCHES OF CHINA AND THE CHINESE [Abbey Travel II, 540]) was published in the same year. LUST 211. BRUNET I, 1113. CORDIER I, 79. HOWGEGO II, B46.

        Historia fisica, politica y natural de la Isla de Cuba. Moluscos.

      - Paris, Arthus Bertrand, [1842-] 1845. Folio (39.2 x 26.0 cm), 216 pp., 20 (of 29) finely hand-coloured plates. Contemporary reddish-brown calf over grained red boards, spine with gilt linings and gilt lettering.* Part V. of the famous work by Ramón de la Sagra on the physical, natural, and political history of Cuba. This is a very rare publication on Cuban shells (land, fresh water, and marine) with many new species finely drawn by Prêtre, and hand-coloured. There also exists a slightly later French text edition in 8vo format. Both are very rare. There are no auction records for these two parts in the last 20 years. Apparently, this copy was bound before the work was completed. The title, half-title and text after p. 216 (the description of Oliva scripta) is wanting, and so are plates 9-12, and 23-28. It is quite possible that this indicates a gap in the production, the rest being published (much) later. The missing plates however, can be provided in very good scanned reproductions. Scattered, mostly light, sometimes moderate spotting, on the plates, mostly marginal. Even in an incomplete state a great rarity and very useful for identifying Cuban and Caribbean molluscs. Cat. BM(NH), p. 1781; Nissen ZBI, 3547; Sabin, 242. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
