The latter was an important exposition of Cameronian ecclesiological thought. (DNB) Complete in three volumes. CONDITION In full morocco bindings. Externally smart, with just some marks to the boards and some shelfwear. Front joints of volumes I,II and III starting; rear joint of volume I also starting. Internally, firmly bound.

Oliver Goldsmith
B. Appleton + Co., New York, 1842. 284 pp. Hardcover in original embossed gilt cloth. Illustrated with numerous engravings, with an account of the author's life and writings by J Aikin. This copy was OWNED and SIGNED/DATED by Alfred Howe in 1850, a Free Black Architect in Wilmington, N.C. See family bio below. I've done my best to describe the book, but if you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail. The Howe Family of Wilmington, North Carolina, encompassed at least four generations of men of color active in the city's building trades. As traced in Strength Through Struggle, they included Anthony Howe (d. 1837) and his sons Anthony (ca. 1807-after 1870), Pompey (d. by 1869), and Alfred Augustus (1817-1892); Anthony's sons Anthony Jr. (dates unknown), Washington (b. ca. 1827-after 1870), John Harriss (ca. 1841-1902), and Valentine Howe (ca. 1842-1904); and at least four of John H. Howe's sons who followed their father and uncles into the building business. Although these men erected many buildings, thus far relatively few have been identified as their work. According to family tradition, Anthony Walker Howe was born in Africa and was sold into slavery and transported to the Lower Cape Fear area in the 18th century, where he was bought by a man named Walker and then sold by Walker's widow to Col. Robert Howe. On Howe's plantation, the family account continues, Anthony employed building skills learned in his native land and was soon involved in plantation construction projects. Family tradition also relates that local Native Americans had left a … [Click Below for Full Description]

BONAPARTE Napoléon-Jérôme
- Italie, circa 1842, 13,5x20,5cm, 4 feuillets rempliés. - Ensemble de quatre lettres signées de Napoléon-Jérôme Bonaparte au peintre Géniole, deux sont datées du 21 août et du 12 décembre [1842], 6 pages à l'encre brune, adresse du destinataire au dos des feuillets, deux sceaux de l'expéditeur en partie conservés. Pliures inhérentes aux mises sous pli. Quelques infimes tâches sans atteinte au texte. La singularité de cet ensemble de lettres est constituée par la présence d'un signe franc-maçon rare (deux points de part et d'autre d'une ligne) entrelacé à la signature du Prince Napoléon. Le symbole explicite les liens étroits qui unissent la famille Bonaparte et la franc-maçonnerie qui aboutiront à faire de Paris la capitale de la franc-maçonnerie sous le Second Empire ainsi qu'à la création de la loge « Bonaparte » en 1852 dont fera partie Napoléon-Jérôme Bonaparte. En 1842, le jeune Napoléon-Jérôme Bonaparte, cousin de Napoléon III, est en voyage en Italie en compagnie d'Alexandre Dumas qui tirera de cette expérience son célèbre Comte de Monte-Cristo. Habitué des milieux artistiques, le Prince Napoléon confie ici ses préoccupations au peintre Alfred André Géniole : « Toutes les lettres que l'on m'a adressées à Milan ne me sont pas parvenues ayant passé par le Tyrol et c'est par le plus grand des hasards que j'ai appris ici que l'on me retiendrait à la frontière. » Les lettres retracent la période délicate que traverse la famille Bonaparte exilée dont le représentant principal, le futur Napoléon III, est alors détenu au fort de Ham : « Il y a aussi un nouvel arrangement en … [Click Below for Full Description]

Whilst there he acted as a critical observer of North American society, upsetting some Americans with his frank and outspoken views. First Issue In volume one the first pagination is xvi, that being the last page of the "Contents To Volume I".

"Première édition collective sous le titre d'Œuvres, présentant, en même temps que nombre de textes en édition originale, une nouvelle version de la Comédie humaine, revue, remaniée par Balzac ; première édition illustrée aussi, et par les meilleurs artistes contemporains de l'auteur. Autant de raisons pour insister sur l'intérêt de cette édition, l'une des plus importantes de la littérature française. Ayant eu une existence agitée, confuse, plusieurs fois rééditée à un grand nombre d'exemplaires, elle est fort rare sous sa première forme, et, sous cette première forme, plus rare encore en reliures uniformes d'époque qu'en reliures modernes avec couvertures" (Clouzot). Notre série ne comporte que 19 volumes : le tome 20, publié en 1855, manque ; l'ouvrage ne devait primitivement comporter que 17 volumes, mais l'éditeur Houssiaux, prenant la suite des éditeurs précédents, les compléta par trois derniers volumes publiés en 1855, qui manquent souvent. Tous les volumes de notre exemplaires sont aux bonnes dates, excepté le tome XVII, qui est à la date de 1849 : cette singularité s'explique par le fait que le tome XVII publié originellement en 1848 ne contenait pas les 5 figures annoncées, livrées par l'éditeur postérieurement ; on aura préféré ici un exemplaire complet de ses planches. Notre exemplaire comporte bien les 149 figures requises pour les 19 premiers volumes.

telling him that he has "had the good fortune to find here, collected in one house - filling more than one room, the choicest prints of the research during many years for fossils from the Pill and Gravel beds of this part of Essex and the neighbouring coast. Among the Rhinoceros remains, a beautiful calvarium with part of the bony wall of the nose giving the character of Tichorrhine, Hippopotamus, Irish Elk so called, two good species of Bas, the small short-horned, also occurring in under-bog gravel in Ireland, and the gigantic Urus, one core is 20 inches circumference at the base: Goat, but , most abundantly the Mammoth. Teeth of all ages, some of them very singularly exemplifying the power of the crushing forces to which the Pill has been subject. One great strong molar ... split vertically, another is crushed and squeezed, so that all the plates are pounded together in a conglomerate with the bits of cracked enamel sticking out just like the glass fragments from the plaster on the top of a garden wall, so defended. Ichthyosaurus, Plesiosaurus with Gryphaea incurva & other ... fossils have also been gathered from the Pill at Walton, washed, somehow, out of ... neighbouring ... I suspect that some Rhinoceros-like teeth are of Acerotherium, but a comparison with Dr Kamp's figures when get home will determine this. The whole presents a strange picture of the Mammalian population of the antiglacial period.

Gogol, N.V.
Moscow: Universitetskaya tipografia, 1842. 475 pp. 23x15 cm. Contemporary half leather. Some bleak water staining on the corner of first pages, pale stain on p.387, as well as the restoration of the spine, but generally a very good copy. From our experience, the condition is 'better than usual'. First edition. From the collection of Count Gagarin. 'The Dead Souls' is one of the most significant books in classical Russian literature written by Nikolay Gogol (1809-1852) in 1835-1842. The book was too innovative and ahead of it's time for Russian censors, so as often the case Gogol faced some difficulties when publishing. First of all the book could be labelled anti-religious, as the concept of the immortal soul is questioned right in the title. Of course 'a soul' in Russian meant 'the serve' like the ones bought by Chichikov in the poem but nevertheless the analogy is hard to miss. Also the censors didn't like the 'Tale of captain Kopeikin', that was seen as a harsh satire on the Russian bureaucracy. Gogol had to cut and edit this part of Chapter 10 to please the censors. He was quite nervous about the situation as he always thought this is one of the best parts of the novel. And still even after that the book was not given a censor's permit. The last request was to change the title and add 'The Adventures of Chichikov' in front of 'The Dead Souls'. After that was done, the book was published. Gogol managed the printing himself. The book was met very enthusiastically: ''Soon after Gogol left, The Dead Souls quickly was everywhere in Moscow and throughout Russia. The book was … [Click Below for Full Description]
