London: A Fullerton and Co, 1842. With forty-four engraved plates, including a frontispiece to each volume and a folding frontispiece map to volume I. Also with decorative papers for family registers, left blank. With explanatory notes, practical observations, and copious marginal references by Thomas Scott, and an introductory essay and numerous additional critical, explanatory and practical notes by William Symington. William Symington was a Reformed Presbyterian (Cameronian) minister. Among the Reformed Presbyterians Symington, like his brother, was a commanding influence. A noted evangelical in the covenanting tradition, he was none the less outward-looking and deeply involved in social issues such as slavery, illiteracy, and poor working conditions. Like Thomas Chalmers, whom he in part resembled, he advocated a Scotland cleansed and dedicated. Besides his published sermons, he recorded his views in The Atonement and Intercession of Jesus Christ (1834) and Messiah the Prince (1839; reissued 1881 with memoir). The latter was an important exposition of Cameronian ecclesiological thought. (DNB) Complete in three volumes. 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. Front hinges of volumes I and III strained, but firm.There is some off-setting from the plates. Some foxing to plates, and some scattered spotting to the pages. Overall Condition: Very Good.

Travels in Kashmir, Ladak, Iskardo, the Countries Adjoining the Mountain Course of the Indus and the Himalaya, North of the Panjab By G.T. Vigne Published London, Henry Colburn, 1842, FIRST EDITION. Two volumes, xlviii, 406; x, 463, 26 [publisher's ads dated Jan 1841]. In what appears to be an uncommon publishers/printers error, pages 65-96 are missing (including 2 plates), though it appears to be a printer error as clearly nothing was ever bound in that section. Otherwise, complete with 11 plates and maps, including a large folding map professionally rebound in a separate custom clamshell case. Professionally rebacked with a beautiful black leather spine and gilt titles. Map has some closed tears and has been reinforced along some of the folds with professional repairs. A narrative of the author's extensive travels, including a detailed introduction on his observations of the events in Afghanistan, his travels through present day India, Ldiana, Rupur, Nadaun, Ladak, through Kashmir, Little Tibet, through the mountains, and other parts of Central Asia, with good description of the peoples, customs, jungles, nature, plants, buildings, religion, events, interviews with important persons, etc. 'He traveled for amusement, saw much and was assisted in his observations by the possession of some knowledge of science' [DNB]. The plates and other illustrations are quite good. Yakushi V38. Baker 264. I've done my best to describe the books, but if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail.

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]

Byron, Anne Isabella, née Milbanke, 11th Baroness Wentworth, wife of poet George Gordon Byron (1792-1860).
Moore Place, Esher, 31. X, 1842. 8vo. 2? pp. on bifolium. Includes an engraved portrait of Lord Byron with a print of his poem, "Fare thee well". To an unidentified Lord, contributing 10 pounds towards the erection of a new chapel: "In compliance with the wish you have expressed to me in so kind a manner, I will settle an endowment of Ten Pounds on the Minister of Petton. I should have great satisfaction in doubling that sum, if the New Chapel were open to the use of Christians of a different denomination, as is the case with Protestant Churches abroad - but as long as the present exclusion system is continued I shall feel that Roman Catholics & Dissenters have likewise a claim to the Landowner's assistance. Your Lordship will I trust pardon me for giving this explanation in order to account for the smallness of my contribution. Should I travel Northwards next Summer, I shall be happy to accept yours & Mr Maltby's gratifying invitation [...]". - A highly educated and strictly religious woman, Anna Isabella seemed an unlikely match for the amoral and agnostic poet Byron. Indeed, the marriage lasted but a year, as Byron was given to fits of anger and maintained an incestuous relationship with his older half-sister Augusta Leigh. The couple separated in March 1816. Their only child, Augusta Ada Byron (Countess of Lovelace), was a gifted mathematician and is credited with creating the first computer program.

London: published for the proprietors by George Virtue, 1842. 4to, 4 volumes in 13; 2 maps and over 200 fine steel engravings, list of subscribers and advertisement leaves, with the author's notice in the final volume. Bound with: Canadian Scenery Illustrated. Original quarter roan, gilt-lettered in decorated publisher's boards; occassional spotting to edges of plates. A rare set of the two works issued together and assembled from the original parts. A most appealing set of an illustrated classic, here in extended form with both the separate American and Canadian publications issued in this form as one continuous work, numbered as a coherent series on the bindings. The series in this form includes over 200 steel-engraved images. The publisher's charming binding is in particularly good condition. "The New World of Columbus...its sudden rise to independence, wealth and power" (Author's preface) is captured in this Victorian publication on the United States and "British America" (Canada) with fine engravings after the noted British landscape painter William Henry Bartlett. This is a wonderful, illustrated romp published at a time to illustrate the last days of relative freedom of the North American native peoples (Willis cites Blumenbach in analysing the "real character of the aboriginal inhabitant") and the development of the cities on the West coast of America and (unusually) Lower Canada. William Bartlett "made four voyages to the United States and Canada...the fruits of which appeared in American Scenery and Canadian Scenery" (DNB).

Erste Ausgabe dieses epochalen Tafelwerks über den Nahen Osten mit allen 248 Ansichten des Heiligen Landes (in getönten Lithos) und Ägyptens (in farbig getönten Lithos). - Blackmer 1432. Lipperheide 1590 und 1591. Röhricht 1983. Abbey, Travel, 385 und 272. - "David Roberts was the first professional artist to visit the Near East without a patron or a connection to a military expedition or missionary group. He sailed to Alexandria in 1838 and for eleven months traveled up the Nile River, across deserts and mountains, through Egypt and the Holy Land, to arrive in Jerusalem on Easter 1839. He continued north to Lebanon and departed from Beirut in May. Roberts recorded his impressions of landscapes, temples, ruins, and people in three sketchbooks and more than 272 watercolors. These sketches and paintings provided the basis for the 247 lithographs published with text between 1842 and 1849 as the three-volume "Holy Land." The images were produced by Louis Haghe, the best and most prolific lithographer of the time. Originally from Tournai, Belgium, Haghe moved to England before 1825 and established himself as specialist of the hand-tinted lithograph. His sensitive handling of the lithographer`s tools imparts a range of tonality and color as well as a sense of the delicacy and spontaneous quality of Roberts`s original imag … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hawaii]: Bunyan, John
Mea paipalapala a na Misionari, Honolulu, 1842. 418pp. plus eight woodcut plates (including frontispiece). 12mo. Contemporary Hawaiian sheep, boards and backstrip tooled with triangular and diamond-shaped pattern; rebacked, original spine neatly laid down. Very clean and fresh internally. Very good. A significant association copy of the rare first edition in Hawaiian of Bunyan's PILGRIM'S PROGRESS, and the first printing in Hawaiian of an English literary classic. This copy bears a presentation inscription on the front free endpaper to the Rev. E.S. Hopkins from the Rev. Elias Bond, dated at Kohala, Sandwich Islands, June 12, 1844. Reverend Bond translated at least seven books for the Mission Press between 1859 and 1868. The Hawaiian title translates as THE TRAVELER FROM THIS WORLD TO THAT WHICH IS TO COME. In 1840 the American Tract Society in Honolulu hoped to publish an abridged edition of Bunyan if a translator could be found, and in 1841 Artemas Bishop took on the task, promising the Society that "it will prove one of the most popular works in the Hawaiian Language." Unfortunately for Artemas and the Society, the book flopped and the 10,000 copies that were printed were remaindered in unbound sheets, most of which were disposed of to Chinese vegetable peddlers for wrapping produce. For copies that survived this, the rate of attrition, as with all early Hawaiian works of this type, remained very high, and the book is quite scarce today. The work failed to impact the Hawaiians, as the English allusions lost all meaning when translated. The names of the extensive cast of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hawaii]: Bunyan, John
Mea paipalapala a na Misionari, Honolulu, 1842. 418pp. plus seven woodcut plates. Frontis. 12mo. Contemporary calf, tooled in blind, leather label. Light wear at extremities. Near fine. The rare first edition in Hawaiian of Bunyan's PILGRIM'S PROGRESS, and the first printing in Hawaiian of an English literary classic. The Hawaiian title translates as THE TRAVELER FROM THIS WORLD TO THAT WHICH IS TO COME. In 1840 the American Tract Society in Honolulu hoped to publish an abridged edition of Bunyan if a translator could be found, and in 1841 Artemas Bishop took on the task, promising the Society that "it will prove one of the most popular works in the Hawaiian Language."

For copies that survived this, the rate of attrition, as with all early Hawaiian works of this type, remained very high, and the book is quite scarce today. The work failed to impact the Hawaiians, as the English allusions lost all meaning when translated. The names of the extensive cast of characters became incomprehensible: Mr. Lechery became Kekowale (literally, lust + only), and Mrs. Filth became Pelapela (decayed flesh). Some of the surviving unbound sheets of this book were bound into limp suede in 1910. This copy, on the other hand, is in a contemporary Hawaiian binding of the mid-19th century, which is most unusual and notably rare.

XVI,342,(1) pp. Some scattered brownspots as usual, due to the paperquality. Old owners name on top of titlepage and front free endpaper. ¶ The important first edition of the work that established the science of nutrition and presented the "first classification of the organic food-stuffs and the process of nutrition" (Garrison & Morton). In this work Liebig, "unquestionably the greatest chemist of his time" (Partington),"carried his chemical investigations into the realm of animal physiology. 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." (Percy H. Muir). Garrison & Morton No. 677 - Waller: 5796 - Wellcome III:515 - Printing and the Mind of Man: 310 (b).

LYTTON, Edward Bulwer (Lord).
Saunders & Otley, London. Hardcover. 3 Volume Set. Octavos. xxiv + 308pp.; (ii) + 302pp.; (iv) + 322pp. (+iipp. adverts). Original quarter cloth over plain grey boards, paper title-labels to spines. An original "three-decker." The true first edition of "Zanoni," published in London in 1842. Often termed a "Rosicrucian novel" it might best be described as a story of romance and occult aspiration. It famously begins with a description of an occult bookshop in Covent Garden, London, now known to have been that of John Denley, the bookseller who for a time employed Frederick Hockley to copy and produce occult manuscripts. In the work Bulwer-Lytton also described the discovery of an occult manuscript, written in secret cipher, which surely has its echoes in the foundation-myth of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn some decades later. Aleister Crowley thought sufficiently highly of the work that he included it as the first work in Section 2 (Other books, principally fiction, of a generally suggestive and helpful kind ) of the A.'. A.'. curriculum reading list where he described it as "Valuable for its facts and suggestions about mysticism." Errata slips tipped in at gathering B(1) in all three volumes.

Until he was about 16 years old, he was trained by the Church, but due to his investigative and truth-seeking nature as well as his studies (e.g. Hebrew), he was in doubt as to the historical truth of the Scriptures, and with the help of his sister he chose his own path in life. "He studied intensively the languages of the Bible and filled a number of minor academic positions, frequently encountering difficulties because of the heterodoxy and outspokenness of his religious opinions."
