Ouvrage enrichi de deux ENVOIS AUTOGRAPHES signés sur le faux-titre : «Offert par les auteurs, hommage de M. l'abbé Abeillon de Grenade Saint-Bernard. C. Paul [&] J.M.

        American Notes for General Circulation.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1842 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original purple cloth decorated with blind-stamped arabesques, titles gilt to spine, yellow endpapers. Fading to spine and around board edges, joints, ends and corners rubbed, the rear hinge of volume two just starting but holding fine, mild spotting to some end leaves but internally quite clean; a very good copy. First edition in the primary binding, first issue, with 'xvi' paginated in volume I. This copy has the often lacking advertisement leaf preceding the half title in volume I and 6pp. of advertisements at the end of volume II. "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 America 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. This copy has the bookplates of noted collector Will Self, who may have been attracted by the contemporary ownership inscription of a "John Shelley", who it is tempting to think might have been John Shelley (1808-1866) of Avington House, the younger brother of the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. Smith II 3; Eckel pp.108-09. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Bradshaw's Railway Companion

      Bradshaw and Blacklock, 27 Brown Street, London 1842 - 1842 ed. of Bradshaw's Railway Companion "Containing the times of departure, fares, &c. of the Railways in England and also Hackney Carriage fares, from the principal Railway stations. Illustrated with maps of the country through which the railways pass, and plans of London, Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester. Price one shilling." One of the joys of these timetables is the absolute clarity of the tiny print. Fine brown cloth-covered card, with gold and green label to front. 2 ink spots to front. Front yellow eps have a neat repair to guttering and text block is still firmly bound. (The guttering having split is probably due to there being frequent pasted in inserts as time-tables changed, thickening the text block.)

Opposite page 22 is fold-out fine India paper linear map showing height and distance of the railway lines, with two or three light brown marks to edge. Following page 31 are hand-coloured country maps, and final fold-out map is of England and Wales, with existing and in-progress lines hand-marked in red and yellow ink. Also listed are canal, cab, coach and fly fares for the various cities and an advertisement for steam boat connections between Liverpool and Carlisle. No tears. The plan of Liverpool City has two brown stains to opposing top edges. Several pastings of contemporary up-dates to timetables etc. An 1843 edition of the above is also currently available.

        Chart of Part of the N.W. Coast of Australia by Phillip P. King

      London,: Admiralty Hydrographic Office, after, 1842.. Engraved map measuring 589 x 880 mm., a fine copy backed on linen. Striking Admiralty chart prepared by Captain Phillip Parker King from his survey voyages of 1818-22 and revised with information from the Beagle survey of northern Australian waters during 1837-42.This map covers the vast coastline from Cape Ford to the LacepÈdË Islands and is from a series of eight charts mapping the northern and west coasts of Australia. It is a lasting testament King's commitment to completing the mapping of the Australian continent, and so completing the work of Cook and Flinders.First published in June 1825, this chart was prepared by King from the results of his four expeditions to chart to northernmost coast of Australia between 1818 and 1822 as commander of the Mermaid and Bathurst. The first expedition sailed in December 1817 carrying the botanist Allan Cunningham and surveyor John Septimus Roe. Two further voyages in the Mermaid ensued in the following years, culminating in that of the Bathurst during 1821-22. In addition to the invaluable mapping of these remote and treacherous waters, King's expedition yielded a bounty of information on the natural history and Aboriginal tribes of the region.This edition of King's chart is revised with additions from the Beagle surveys of northern Australian waters during 1837-42, commanded first by John Clements Wickham and later by John Lort Stokes. Both men served under King aboard the Beagle during the South American surveys of 1827 to 1830, and later accompanied Robert FitzRoy and Charles Darwin on their famous voyage of discovery 1833-36.Detailed and finely engraved, the chart is the work of John Walker and his likewise named son, engravers to the Admiralty (John Walker senior was long favoured by Dalrymple on account of the finesse of his work). It bears the stamp of "D. Wald Admiralty Agent Port Adelaide.".British Map Engravers , p.692; Ritchie 'The Admiralty Chart', pp.173-74; Tooley, 805 (first edition).

        Die organische Chemie in ihrer Anwendung auf Physiologie und Pathologie.

      Verlag Friedrich Vieweg u. Sohn, Braunschweig 1842 - 8vo (207x132 mm). xvi, [2], 342, [2] pp. including half title. Contemporary cardboard with handwritten paper label; interior foxed throughout, half title with chipping to fore-edge. ---- Garrison-Morton 677; PMM 310b; Waller 5796; Wellcome III, p. 515; Norman 1351; Sparrow 133. - FIRST EDITION. "With this book Liebig introduced the concept of metabolism into physiology" (Garrison-Morton). Liebig envisioned his book, titled Die Thierchemie in later editions, as a complement to his researches into the chemistry of plants. In it he showed, "like Lavoisier, that animal heat is not innate, but the result of combustion, introduced the concept of metabolism (Stoffwechsel); and classified animal foodstuffs as fats, carbohydrates and proteins according to their function. He thus became the founder of the modern science of nutrition" (PMM). The work aroused "sharply divergent reactions. Even those who reacted against it, however, began to view the chemical phenomena of life differently than they had before, for Liebig had provided one of the first comprehensive pictures of the overall meaning of the ceaseless chemical exchanges which form an integral part of the vital processes. As with his agricultural chemistry, Liebig's physiological writings provided an impetus which outlasted the refutation of some of his specific theories" (DSB).
