        American Notes for General Circulation

      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.

      [London:] Ordered, by The House of Commons, to be Printed, 5 August 1842 - 2 volumes, folio (322 x 210 mm). 20th-century red library buckram, spines lettered and ruled in gilt, blue endpapers, top edge gilt. Spines slightly rolled, minor rubbing to extremities and corners gently bumped, a few scratches to boards, hinges strengthened, 2 long tears to folding map of Gambia, a few minor nicks to upper edge of leaf B1 and fore edge of DD2 of volume I, overall a very good set. 3 coloured folding maps to volume I. Bookplates of Public Record Office to front pastedowns, pages neatly separately paginated in ink and a few annotations to contents. First editions of these British government documents on a range of subjects relating to the illicit slave trade, bound as volumes 7 and 8 of a 10-volume library series, Reports from Committees: 1842. The volumes are a valuable source of contemporary information regarding the economics of the slave trade and the British government's efforts to abolish it, and draw extensively from the colonial administrator Richard Robert Madden's accounts. Madden was sent to West Africa in 1841 "as a commissioner of inquiry into the administration of British coastal settlements, where he exposed the 'pawn system', which was a disguised form of slavery" (ODNB). The large folding plates are maps of Sierra Leone, Gambia, and the Gold Coast. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A CATALOGUE OF THE CLASSIC CONTENTS OF STRAWBERRY HILL COLLECTED BY HORACE WALPOLE

      London: George Robins, 1842. xxiv,250pp. Quarto. Cloth-backed stiff boards, pictorial title vignette on upper board. Engraved frontis portrait and engraved title, illustrations. Boards edgeworn and somewhat rubbed and soiled; prelims through page 'x' neatly detached, soft vertical crease in engraved title-leaf; generally a good copy of an item rarely found fine. Novelist/collector Hugh Walpole's copy, with his leather Brackenburn bookplate inside the upper board, beneath an inserted example of Horace (Horatio) Walpole's own engraved bookplate (the early state of BP2). This example is a variant of Hazen's edition 'I' of the extensive sale catalogue of Walpole's library and effects. The printing history of the catalogue is moderately complex, as were the circumstances of the sale, and as many as seven editions of the catalogue are described by Hazen, not including the separate catalogue of the London sale. In this copy, as characteristic of Hazen's edition 'I', there are only 152 lots in the tenth day and 140 in the twelfth. However, like in Hazen's edition 'V', the Waldegrave manuscripts (6th day, lots 161-187) have been removed. However, the books of prints in the Round Tower, making up days 7 and 8, are still present. These were removed in edition 'VI', and recatalogued for the London sale. This copy has been sporadically priced in pencil in a contemporary hand, beginning part way through the sixth day (skipping days 7 and 8, as would be expected), occasionally with buyers noted. There are a few instances of detailed annotations about specific lots. Two added engravings of Strawberry Hill have been tipped before the printed title, one by Eastgate after Ireland. Laid in is a somewhat later (1863?) and partially a.l.s. from a bookseller, from 45 Booksellers Row, Strand, reporting results from a related sale, as well as two small folio waste sheets (post- 1853), with printed and revised manuscript descriptions of Irish books affixed, numbering lots 191-207, and noted in pencil as associated with 'W. Ridler," at the same address. Another octavo sheet listing four titles is also laid in. HAZEN (LIBRARY), p. xxix.

        Syria, The Holy Land, Asia Minor &c Illustrated in a series of 120 views, drawn from nature by William H. Bartlett, William Purser, and Thomas Allom. THREE VOLUMES IN ONE.

      Fisher & Son, London - [2], 80 pp., / 76 pp., / 100 pp., [4 index], 3 maps of which one is folding, 121 engraved plates including 3 title engravings and a frontis portrait of Mehmet Ali, contemporary tree calf gilt, rubbed and lightly marked, title gilt on spine, gilt borders on cover, occasional spotting, light marginal damp-staining mainly to front 2 leaves, Fisher Son & Co., London & Paris, [c.1842]. John Carne (1789-1844) traveller and author. He resolved to visit the Holy Places, and accordingly he left England on 26 March 1821. He visited Constantinople, Greece, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and Egypt. On returning back to England he started writing for the ‘New Monthly Magazine’, an account of his travels under the title ‘Letters from the East’. The first edition formed the first part of Fisher’s projected series ‘The Turkish Empire Illustrated’, and appeared in 30 parts of 4 plates each. The great majority of the views are by William Bartlett, who travelled extensively in the Levant. These drawings must have been made on his first journey in 1834-35; this seems to be the first book in which any of Bartlett’s Eastern drawings appear. The third volume includes plates after drawings by Thomas Allom, who also travelled to the levant around 1836-7. Bibliograpgic references: Blackmer 291; Tobler p. 148; Rohricht 1690. Size: 4to.

        Excursions Daguerriennes. Vues et Monuments les plus remarquables du Globe.

      Lerebours, Paris 1842 - Complete in two volumes, but a married set, different in paper size and bound in different, contemporary cloth, oblong folio. Together 112 plates, printed on chine collé and mounted on heavy paper. Volume I in original red blindstamped cloth with the covers rather soiled and with edgewear along the spine, mount size: 245 x 345 mm. Later endpapers, most likely because this copy has been recased. The endpapers match the original ones in colour and tone. A title page, followed by the plates with the descriptive letterpress. The plates overall very clean and occasionally some very light foxing on the mounts. All 60 plates protected with tissue guards. Lacking the list of illustrations and one leaf (= two textpages), accompanying one plate. A few of the textpages browned, however, without affecting the legibility. Volume II bound in gilt lined morocco over brown cloth with a gilt ornament in the centre of front - and back board with marbled endpapers, mount size: 258 x 385 mm. The spine richly gilt. All edges gilt of this volume. The extremities a bit rubbed and some foxing on the mounts. Half title only as usual, followed by the list of plates and the plates with the descriptive letterpress. The 52 plates in this volume are not protected with tissue guards. Volume II contains 2 of the 3 known Fizeau plates, viz. the plate of "L'Hotel-de-Ville de Paris" and the plate "Maison Élevée Rue St. Georges". The latter plate is missing in most copies, while the third plate "Bas-relief au Portail Nord de Notre-Dame" is missing in our copy. Each plate is accompanied by 2 - 4 pages of letterpress, written by various experts on the subject shown in the respective plate. The plates in Volume II are not fully in accordance with the list of plates. Missing is the Fizeau plate "Un Bas-relief de Notre-Dame", while there are two extra plates; "Pont de Nemours" and the rare Fizeau Plate "Maison Élevée Rue St. Georges", resulting in a total of 52 plates instead of 51.

        Traité sur l'art de restaurer les Difformités de la Face, selon la méthode par déplacement, ou méthode francaise. Text und Atlas.

      Montpellier, Louis Castel, 1842, 8 und 4, XIV, 468, (2) pp., 2 Bl., 30 doppelseitige Tafeln Textband mit eingebundener orig. Broschur, 2 Halbledereinbände. First Edition. The first systematic textbook and atlas of plastic surgery of the face, and the second general work on plastic surgery published in France.Labat (1832) and Blandin (1836) produced the first treatise on plastic surgery in France, followed in 1842 by Serre. The double - page plates are pre- and post - operative portraits, with insets of operative techniques.Serre was the chief exponent of the "sliding" or "French" method, which he applied in his textbook in various facial operations. The method was intended originally for eyelid reconstruction, but was applied to replacing other parts "on the flat."Michel Serre (1799.1848) was the student and successor of Jacques Mathieu Delpech (1777-1832) who performed the first rhinoplasty in France in 1823 (see G-M 5741.1) and pioneered in the correction of congenital facial deformities. Delpech, however, wrote no separate work on plastic surgery. Serre's textbook incorporates his teachings. Zeis gives Serre credit for some new additions to plastic surgery, and points out that his first plate shows implantation of skin from the palm of the hand to reconstruct the columella. This is acknowledged despite the conflicts between German and French surgeons over priority in the new field. Zeis, of course, was a great partisan of the Germans, and claimed that Dieffenbach had originated the so-called "French" method which Serre promoted (ibid. 102-03). Serre, while not claiming that he invented it, argues in his historical account that the method originated in France. Exceptionally rare on the market in any condition.Recens.: Zeis in Schm.

        The History Of Rome (Fourth Edition, 3 Volumes) And The History Of Rome From The First Punic War To The Death Of Constantine (2 Volumes), And Lectures On The History Of Rome, From The Earliest Times To The Commencement Of The First Punic War (1848) [Six Volumes In Matching Full Calf]

      London : Taylor And Walton 1842, 1844, 1847, 1848, 1842. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Full Calf. Very Good. Complete English Language Edition In Six Thick Volumes Of The Lectures On Greek And Roman History By Barthold Georg Niebuhr (1776 - 1831). A Uniform Set In Full Tan Calf, Five Bands, Morocco Spine Labels, Elaborate Gilt Tooling To Spines, Gilt Ruled Borders And Devices On Covers, Brightly Marbled Endpapers, And Matching Marbled Page Edges. Front Board Of Volume Vi Detached. Gilt Bright, Spines Darkened, Some Rubbing, Small Frays At Tips. Bookplates Of Charles Henry Turner, Bishop Of Islington, And Thomas Turner. Niebuhr, A Danish-German Statesman And Historian, Became Germany's Leading Historian Of Ancient Rome And A Founding Father Of Modern Scholarly Historiography. Classical Rome (Rather Than Greece) Caught The Admiration Of German Thinkers. By 1810 Niebuhr Was Inspiring German Patriotism In Students At The University Of Berlin By His Analysis Of Roman Economics And Government. Historians Generally View Niebuhr As A Leader Of The Romantic Era And Symbol Of German National Spirit That Emerged After The Defeat At Jena. But He Was Also Deeply Rooted In The Classical Spirit Of The Age Of Enlightenment In His Intellectual Presuppositions, His Use Of Philologic Analysis, And His Emphasis On Both General And Particular Phenomena In History. He Was Born In Copenhagen, The Son Of Carsten Niebuhr, A Prominent German Geographer Resident In The City. His Father Provided His Early Education.The Precocious Young Niebuhr By 1794 Was Already An Accomplished Classical Scholar And Who Read Several Languages. That Year He Entered The University Of Kiel, Where He Studied Law And Philosophy. In 1796, He Left Kiel To Become Private Secretary To The Danish Finance Minister, Count Schimmelmann. But In 1798 He Gave Up This Appointment And Traveled In Great Britain, Spending A Year At Edinburgh Studying Agriculture And Physics. Of His Stay In Great Britain, He Said "My Early Residence In England Gave Me One Important Key To Roman History. It Is Necessary To Know Civil Life By Personal Observation In Order To Understand Such States As Those Of Antiquity. I Never Could Have Understood A Number Of Things In The History Of Rome Without Having Observed England."Niebuhr's Roman History Counts Among Epoch-Making Histories Both As Marking An Era In The Study Of Its Special Subject And For Its Momentous Influence On The General Conception Of History. Leonhard Schmitz Said: "The Main Results Arrived At By The Inquiries Of Niebuhr, Such As His Views Of The Ancient Population Of Rome, The Origin Of The Plebs, The Relation Between The Patricians And Plebeians, The Real Nature Of The Ager Publicus, And Many Other Points Of Interest, Have Been Acknowledged By All His Successors." Other Alleged Discoveries, Such As The Construction Of Early Roman History Out Of Still Earlier Ballads, Have Not Been Equally Fortunate; But If Every Positive Conclusion Of Niebuhr's Had Been Refuted, His Claim To Be Considered The First Who Dealt With The Ancient History Of Rome In A Scientific Spirit Would Remain Unimpaired, And The New Principles Introduced By Him Into Historical Research Would Lose Nothing Of Their Importance. He Suggested, Though He Did Not Elaborate, The Theory Of The Myth, So Potent An Instrument For Good And Ill In Modern Historical Criticism. He Brought In Inference To Supply The Place Of Discredited Tradition, And Showed The Possibility Of Writing History In The Absence Of Original Records. By His Theory Of The Disputes Between The Patricians And Plebeians Arising From Original Differences Of Race He Drew Attention To The Immense Importance Of Ethnological Distinctions, And Contributed To The Revival Of These Divergences As Factors In Modern History. More Than All, Perhaps, Since His Conception Of Ancient Roman Story Made Laws And Manners Of More Account Than Shadowy Lawgivers, He Undesignedly Influenced History By Further Popularizing That Conception Of It Which Lays Stress On Institutions, Tendencies And Social Traits.

      Guy's Hosp. Rep.,7/15. - London, Samuel Highley, 32, Fleet Street, October, 1842, 8, (16), pp.291-496, (2), 5 lith. Taf. 16 p. Advertising Sheets (pp. Highley), 4 p. (Taylor and Walton) (1st. Oct., 1842)), orig. Halbleinenband. First Edition of the first clear description of chronic constrictive pericarditis through Norman Chevers (1818-1886), a fine copy in original state of the complete number of the journal, with original printed wrappers and green cloth spine. "Chevers's article gave the first clear account of chronic constrictive pericarditis. "He discussed the compression effects of pericardial adhesions and he manner in which they restricted both systole and disastole of the heart, emphasitzing particularly the interference with diastole. Clevers believed that, when cardiac enlargement acompanied the occurrence of pericardial adhesions, some other cause for the enlagrement must be sought, such as valvular lesions. In fact he was of the opinion that constriction of the heart was capable of producing athrophy of the organ" Willius & Dry, pp.130-131 Garrison & Morton No.2752 Norman Col. 467

        An Act (5 & 6 Vict. Cap. 35) for granting duties on profits arising from property, professions, trades, and offices, until the sixth day of April 1845. Passed 22d June 1842.

      London: printed by George E. Eyre and Andrew Spottiswoode 1842 - 8vo., 283 + (1)pp., original cloth lettered in black on upper cover, the cloth faded, spine browned, else a fine copy with the early ownership signature of Craufurd of Craufurdland> in Ayrshire. 'In 1842, then, Peel was addressing himself through the fiscal system to the health of the economy and to the morale of the nation as a whole. He resolved to redistribute the tax burden by reducing duties upon articles of mass consumption and reintroducing the income tax which had been abolished after a back-bench revolt in 1815. Reducing duties would help to get the nation back to work and take the momentum out of the Chartist movement. Peel did not recognize the political aspirations of the Chartists, and (unlike his father) he would never himself propose statutory restrictions upon the hours of labour. But he understood hunger, and he wanted thoughts of ‘sedition’ to be forgotten ‘in consequence of greater command over the necessaries and minor luxuries of life’ (Hansard 3, 87.1048). Imposing a peacetime income tax would demonstrate that the British state was an equitable one, in which burdens were placed (despite the warnings of political economists who identified income as the source of savings and the route to capital formation) upon those best able to bear them. These measures had to be sold to a party which was still solidly protectionist. Accordingly, in 1842, grain was singled out for separate treatment and dealt with first, and on 9 February Peel announced a thorough revision of the sliding scale of 1828—to make it more defensible. Then, on 11 March, when he introduced the budget—which he did himself (the complaisant Goulburn stepping aside)—he began by making much of the deficit. Having worked up a sense of urgency he explored and rejected alternative remedies (lower expenditure, increased duties, and the ‘wretched expedient’ of borrowing). Finally he came to his own plan. An income tax of 7d. in the pound on incomes over £150 p.a. was to be imposed for three years. This would turn the deficit into a surplus. With that surplus Peel proposed to undertake ‘a complete review, on general principles, of all the articles of the tariff’. No duty should ever again be prohibitive. Imports were to be categorized (the word ‘consolidated’ was not mentioned but might not have been out of place) into raw materials, semi-finished articles, and manufactured products, which were not to pay more than 5 per cent, 12 per cent, and 20 per cent respectively. Duties were reduced on 750 out of the 1200 articles in the tariff (Hansard 3, 61.422–76). It was Peel's finest hour; the crisis of the century was met by the fiscal reform of all the centuries. The budget brought the resignation of the duke of Buckingham, and Peel recalled that ‘these changes were not effected without great murmuring and some open opposition to the Government on the part of many of its supporters’ (Memoirs, 2.100–01). But in fact it was a wonderfully ambiguous measure. He had rationalized the tariff: he had taken a step towards free trade. He could still move in either direction.' [John Prest in ODNB].

        The History Of Rome (Fourth Edition, 3 Volumes) And The History Of Rome From The First Punic War To The Death Of Constantine (2 Volumes), And Lectures On The History Of Rome, From The Earliest Times To The Commencement Of The First Punic War (1848) [Six Volumes In Matching Full Calf]

      Taylor And Walton 1842, 1844, 1847, 1848, London - Complete English Language Edition In Six Thick Volumes Of The Lectures On Greek And Roman History By Barthold Georg Niebuhr (1776 ¿ 1831). A Uniform Set In Full Tan Calf, Five Bands, Morocco Spine Labels, Elaborate Gilt Tooling To Spines, Gilt Ruled Borders And Devices On Covers, Brightly Marbled Endpapers, And Matching Marbled Page Edges. Front Board Of Volume Vi Detached. Gilt Bright, Spines Darkened, Some Rubbing, Small Frays At Tips. Bookplates Of Charles Henry Turner, Bishop Of Islington, And Thomas Turner. Niebuhr, A Danish-German Statesman And Historian, Became Germany's Leading Historian Of Ancient Rome And A Founding Father Of Modern Scholarly Historiography. Classical Rome (Rather Than Greece) Caught The Admiration Of German Thinkers. By 1810 Niebuhr Was Inspiring German Patriotism In Students At The University Of Berlin By His Analysis Of Roman Economics And Government. Historians Generally View Niebuhr As A Leader Of The Romantic Era And Symbol Of German National Spirit That Emerged After The Defeat At Jena. But He Was Also Deeply Rooted In The Classical Spirit Of The Age Of Enlightenment In His Intellectual Presuppositions, His Use Of Philologic Analysis, And His Emphasis On Both General And Particular Phenomena In History. He Was Born In Copenhagen, The Son Of Carsten Niebuhr, A Prominent German Geographer Resident In The City. His Father Provided His Early Education.The Precocious Young Niebuhr By 1794 Was Already An Accomplished Classical Scholar And Who Read Several Languages. That Year He Entered The University Of Kiel, Where He Studied Law And Philosophy. In 1796, He Left Kiel To Become Private Secretary To The Danish Finance Minister, Count Schimmelmann. But In 1798 He Gave Up This Appointment And Traveled In Great Britain, Spending A Year At Edinburgh Studying Agriculture And Physics. Of His Stay In Great Britain, He Said ¿My Early Residence In England Gave Me One Important Key To Roman History. It Is Necessary To Know Civil Life By Personal Observation In Order To Understand Such States As Those Of Antiquity. I Never Could Have Understood A Number Of Things In The History Of Rome Without Having Observed England.¿Niebuhr's Roman History Counts Among Epoch-Making Histories Both As Marking An Era In The Study Of Its Special Subject And For Its Momentous Influence On The General Conception Of History. Leonhard Schmitz Said: "The Main Results Arrived At By The Inquiries Of Niebuhr, Such As His Views Of The Ancient Population Of Rome, The Origin Of The Plebs, The Relation Between The Patricians And Plebeians, The Real Nature Of The Ager Publicus, And Many Other Points Of Interest, Have Been Acknowledged By All His Successors." Other Alleged Discoveries, Such As The Construction Of Early Roman History Out Of Still Earlier Ballads, Have Not Been Equally Fortunate; But If Every Positive Conclusion Of Niebuhr's Had Been Refuted, His Claim To Be Considered The First Who Dealt With The Ancient History Of Rome In A Scientific Spirit Would Remain Unimpaired, And The New Principles Introduced By Him Into Historical Research Would Lose Nothing Of Their Importance. He Suggested, Though He Did Not Elaborate, The Theory Of The Myth, So Potent An Instrument For Good And Ill In Modern Historical Criticism. He Brought In Inference To Supply The Place Of Discredited Tradition, And Showed The Possibility Of Writing History In The Absence Of Original Records. By His Theory Of The Disputes Between The Patricians And Plebeians Arising From Original Differences Of Race He Drew Attention To The Immense Importance Of Ethnological Distinctions, And Contributed To The Revival Of These Divergences As Factors In Modern History. More Than All, Perhaps, Since His Conception Of Ancient Roman Story Made Laws And Manners Of More Account Than Shadowy Lawgivers, He Undesignedly Influenced History By Further Popularizing That Conception Of It Which Lays Stress On Institutions, Tendencies And Social Traits.

        NEW ZEALAND: DIE COLONISATION VON NEU-SEELAND. EIN VORTRAG, IM WISSENSCHAFTLICHEN VEREINE ZU BERLIN AM 22. JANUAR 1842, VON KARL RITTER.

      8° (20.5 x 12.5 cm / 8 x 5 inches): Collation Complete – 52 pp., 1 folding map (23.5 x 28 cm / 9 x 11 inches), bound in contemporary marbled boards (Very Good, old library stamps to title, text and map clean and crisp, binding with shelf-ware). - Berlin: Wilhelm Besser, 1842. Very rare – the first printing of the famous geographer Carl Ritter’s insightful and influential discourse on the early colonization of New Zealand, based upon his extensive interviews of principals of the New Zealand Company, featuring an original map, published in Berlin in 1842. - This is the very rare first printing of Carl Ritter’s discourse on the early colonization of New Zealand, published in Berlin barely four years after the New Zealand Company had begun its activities in earnest. Ritter, along with his friend Alexander von Humboldt, is considered to be the father of modern geography, and while he never stepped foot anywhere near New Zealand, he maintained a particular fascination for this distant land, with its unusual geography, native Maori peoples, and endemic species of wildlife. In 1841, Ritter traveled to London to interview several of the main backers of the New Zealand Company, the syndicate that possessed the official mandate to settle and develop New Zealand on behalf of the British Crown. These interviewees included politicians and financiers, as well as Company employees who had returned to England from New Zealand. Ritter had such a great international reputation; the Company’s principals were honoured by the opportunity, as so provided the German geographer with remarkably candid and detailed insights into the early colonization of New Zealand. This imbues the present work with considerable historical value. Ritter consolidated the valuable insights gleaned in London into a speech he delivered the Economic Union of Berlin on January 22, 1842. The present work is thus the text of his speech, slightly edited for style. It is jam-packed with fascinating facts and statistics, as well as detailed observations on the history, geography, natural sciences, native peoples, climate and economic potential of New Zealand. Importantly, the discourse provides insider information on the early development of the Company’s colonization schemes, which were then focused on settling parts of the North Island. Ritter provides a highly positive impression of New Zealand, as having the ideal climate to foster a modern European society on the other side of the globe. He highly rates the character of the Company’s officers glowingly and commends the organization’s plans for developing the islands. He predicts a bright future for New Zealand. Indeed, as of 1841, the Company seemed to have made a good start towards their initial goals. It had made peace with Maori, upon signing the Treaty of Waitangi (1840); it had ensured that New Zealand was formally made a colony (1841); and it had successfully established several towns, which would subsequently become some of New Zealand’s major cities. It was only in 1843 that the Company started to fall into serious financial and organizational problems. Thus, Ritter’s assessment seemed astute at the time. A highlight of Ritter’s work is an attractive original folding map that features the world in two hemispheres, noting New Zealand’s global position and the fastest travel route between England and New Zealand. The composition is completed with two cartographic insets: one with a map of the Cook Strait (which divides the North and South Islands); and the other being a map of Port Nicholson, the location of Wellington.

        La Bruyere et la Rochefoucauld - Mme de la Fayette et Mme de Longueville

      Imprimerie de H. Fournier et Cie, Paris 1842 - RARE VOLUME. La Bruyere et la Rochefoucauld - Mme de la Fayette et Mme de Longueville. Spine gilt-lettered with "Sainte-Beuve - Morceaux Choisis". Selected pieces. Edition originale. First edition. Text in French. Published without the author's name on title page ("Sainte-Beuve" in gilt to spine), & apparently this very scarce work by the famed literary critic was initially reserved for the author's friends, not for the public. Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve (1804-1869), literary critic and one of the major figures of French literary history. Contemporary ink notation to first blank ("a mon ami" & then signed by?). From the preface, in full: "On a pense a recueillir ici et a reunir en un petit volume, non pas pour le public, mais pour quelques amis particuliers, et par gout des lettres en elles-memes, quatre morceaux deja imprimes ailleurs, sur les deux celebres moralists du XVII siecle, La Bruyere et La Rochefoucauld, et sur deux femmes illustres qui ont tenu une grande place dans le vie de ce dernier. Le tout presente une sorte d'ensemble qui a paru gagner a etre ainsi isole. On s'est risque a y ajouter un cinquieme morceau, qui s'y rattache moins etroitement, mais dont madame Des Houlieres, ce disciple de M. de La Rochefoucauld, fait presque tous les frais: ce n'est qu'une variete encore de la meme morale. Quant a la nouvelle qui termine, il y a bien lieu de craindre en effet qu'apres cette suite de conversations dans le XVII siecle, on n'y trouve aucun rapport". Contents include preface, La Bruyere (p.3-42), Madame de la Fayette (p.43-107), M. de la Rochefoucauld (p.109-164), Madame de Longueville (p.165-216), Une Ruelle Poetique - Sous Louis XIV (p.217-250), Christel (p.251-282), Table des Matieres (p.283-284). With comprehensive footnotes. Imprimerie de H. Fournier et Cie, Rue Saint-Benoit, 7, Paris. Fine binding. Bound in full leather, gilt-lettered red leather label to spine, elaborate floral gilt decoration in compartments to spine, raised bands, covers gilt-ruled, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, marbled page edges, red ribbon page marker. Small leather piece from one raised band lacking to spine, small chip to base of spine (obscuring part of binder's details), hinges very slightly loose (but holding), light foxing throughout, pencil notation in French to ffep (regarding the rarity), otherwise overall an exceptional nice clean tight solid leatherbound copy.
