Shaw, Henry.
London: William Pickering, 1843. Henry Shaw (1800-1873) was a printer and graphic artist with a particular interest in medieval art and illuminated manuscripts. His works, which include the books Specimens of Ancient Furniture and Specimens of the Details of Elizabethan Architecture, showcase his impressive skills as an engraver and a lithographer. McLeanÕs Victorian Book Design describes the present volume as ShawÕs Òmost ambitiousÓ work, Òa magnificent production,Ó and possibly Òthe most handsome book produced in the whole of the nineteenth century.Ó Shaw was a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London and oversaw the production of Renaissance artifact and manuscript facsimiles for the British Museum Library. Sir Thomas Tobin (1807-1888) was a prominent British merchant and collector of books and antiquities. He was a member of the Royal Society of Northern Antiquities and, like Shaw, a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London. His wife, Lady Catherine Tobin (1835-1903), was also a collector, as well as an author and translator of French literature. Robert Day (1836-1914) was a photographer and an important collector of antiquities.

SHELLEY, Percy Bysshe
[London]: "Reprinted for Thomas Rodd" ca. 1843. First edition. 8vo. Gatherings stiched; red morocco slipcase. Fine. Item #400585 According to Wise: "In 1843, when advertising the present pamphlet for sale, Rodd asserted that it was a facsimile reprint of an alleged original edition of which the author had printed twenty copies in 1816. No example of this mysterious original has ever been unearthed; no trace of it beyond Rodd's own statement has ever been discovered; and no mention of any kind either of its printing or distribution is to be found in the correspondence of Shelley or any of his friends. My own opinion is that no original ever existed, that the private impression of twenty copies was a myth, and that Rodd's so-called facsimile reprint of 1843 is in fact the actual princeps of the Address" (Ashley V, p.64).

PRESENTING FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION EXQUISITE GENUINE 175 YEAR OLD *KING JAMES BIBLE* PRINTED AT THE UNIVERSITY PRESS OXFORD IN 1843 ***FEATURING A BEAUTIFUL COLOR FORE EDGE PAINTING OF A COUNTRY SCENE WITH FARM ANIMALS IN THE FORE GROUND AND A CATHEDRAL IN THE BACKGROUND !*** * OCTAVO EDITION * MEASURES 7" x 4 1/2" & NICELY BOUND IN FINE DARK BROWN LEATHER WITH GOLD GILT TURN-INS AND WITH ITS ORIGINAL CUSTOM FITTED FLIP STORAGE CASE ! A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF A MID 19TH CENTURY ENGLISH ART FORM ! A fore-edge painting is a scene painted on the edges of the pages of a book. There are two basic forms, including paintings on edges that have been fanned and edges that are closed; thus with the first instance a book edge must be fanned to see the painting and in the second the painting is on the closed edge itself and thus should not be fanned. A fanned painting is one that is not visible when the book is closed. In order to view the painting, the leaves of the book must be fanned, exposing the edges of the pages and thereby the painting. Another basic difference is that a painting on the closed edge is painted directly on the surface of the book edge (the fore-edge being the opposite of the spine side). For the fanned painting the watercolor is applied to the top or bottom margin (recto or verso) of the page/leaf and not to the actual "fore"-edge itself. The earliest fore-edge paintings date possibly as far back as the 10th century; these earliest paintings were symbol … [Click Below for Full Description]

PEASE Joseph
1843. Letterpress broadside measuring approx. 400 by 250mm. Printed docket on the verso, old folds, tear to top left corner where previously affixed, very good. [London], Steam-press of W.H. Cox, 17 June, Like many abolitionists, Joseph Pease (1799-1872) was a Quaker. Here he writes during the Anti-Slavery convention that was held in London over seven days in June, 1843. It was a difficult time for the abolition movement, which had lost much of its appeal after the passing of the 1833 emancipation act. Nonetheless, slavery was still in place in the United States, Brazil, and much of the West Indies. (France did not abolish slavery until 1848.) Many Quakers took it as a matter of course to boycott products of the enslaved labour economy, notably sugar and rum. While those goods were, perhaps, easy to avoid, cotton was another matter. As such, both Quakers and abolitionists turned to India as a reliable free-labour source. Indeed, the ?debate at the convention of 1843 made it clear to more dogmatic abolitionists that many supporters of the earlier anti-slavery movement now followed Cobden in preferring free trade to the exclusion from Great Britain of slave-grown products? (Billington, 315). Pease adopted the same position. In this broadside, he seeks to demonstrate his ?common-sense view? by arguing for the economics of Indian coolie labour which - comparing figures provided by Mr Gladstone in the West Indies and Mr Symes in Bengal - cost less than a tenth of that in Demerara. He reinforces his argument by quoting James Cropper: ?That if Slavery and the Slave Trade had been … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gabriello DE SANCTIS
1843. Carta geografica della Sicilia tratta da "Atlante Corografico del Regno delle Due Sicilie" edito a Napoli in tre ristampe dal 1840 al 1856. L'Atlante Corografico, come consuetudine all'epoca, uscì a dispense. Venne anche stampato un Manifesto di Associazione, probabilmente nel 1843) allo scopo di raccogliere sottoscrizioni per l'opera, nel quale era descritto il contenuto dell'opera, le carte già realizzate e il relativo costo. Nel prospetto erano previste anche due tavole con la "Posizione astronomica, topografica e geodesia, popolazione e divisione amministrativa..." che non furono mai realizzate. Il materiale che utilizzò per la compilazione, era costituito dai due atlanti, anteriori solo di un decennio, realizzati dal Marzolla e da De Salvatori. Di fatto, De Sanctis non era né geografo né topografo, e il suo atlante è anzitutto un'opera di compilazione. Le tavole, prive di reticolo geografico, sono veri e proprio esercizi di grafica e calligrafica, che fanno dell'opera uno dei più raffinati atlanti del secolo. Inoltre, riflettono il suo interesse per i dati statistici. Ogni tavola è adornata con lo stemma della provincia rappresentata. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in ottime condizioni. Map taken from "Atlante Corografico del Regno delle Due Sicilie" published in Naples, three editions from 1840 to 1856. The Atlante Corografico, as usual at the time, came out in a single parts. It was also printed a poster of Association, (probably in 1843) in order to collect subscriptions for the work, in which he had described the content of the work, the ca … [Click Below for Full Description]

Only date stated is "1914" on title page of book. Thus, I am assuming this is a first edition. This is an ex-library book with markings on the front end pages and front inside board; on title page and on "Content" page. (See photo's). 8" rusty-brown hardback. Faded gold print on spine. Wear to boards including fading to spine; bumping along edges; rubbing/scuffing/scratching to boards. Boards in Fair to Good condition. Pages are tight but book will lay open. Pages are unmarked but there are dirty marks/spots throughout the book. A few pages have closed tears at the top or bottom edges. 99 pages. This book has been read so it has fairly heavy reading wear. It is however a very scarce title, so the wear is probably quite acceptable. Please email if you need additional information or pictures for this book. I have only found info on two other copies of this book -- both had pictured wraps. One sold on eBay for $1500 and one at auction for $1800. These were a number of years ago. I have been unable to find additional copies of this book anywhere else.

Paris, Dolin, 1843. In-8 (203 x 140 mm), demi-veau rouge cerise, dos lisse orné d'un riche décor romantique de fers rocaille dorés dégageant le titre au centre, filet gras en tête et pied, tranches mouchetées (reliure de l’époque), (4), 338 p. Édition originale très rare. "'Les pages suivantes ne sont point écrites pour les demoiselles qui sortent du couvent'. Ce clin d’œil donne d’emblée le ton de ce livre ( ). Dumas s’inspire du traité du médecin hygiéniste Parent-Duchâtelet, ‘De la prostitution dans la ville de Paris’ et divise les marchandes de plaisir en trois classes: les filles publiques, qui racolent aux environs du Palais Royal, sur les boulevards ou dans les maisons closes ; les grisettes ou lorettes, établies dans l’actuel XIXe arrondissement, autour desquelles gravite une clientèle plus bourgeoise et bohème ; enfin les demi-mondaines, qui recrutent leurs riches protecteurs parmi les princes et les barons de la finance, s’affichent à l’opéra et vivent dans de somptueux hôtels particuliers où elles reçoivent l’élite de leur temps. Exploration des bas-fonds de la société parisienne, agrémentée d’anecdotes et de digressions historiques ( ), il en résulte un panorama bigarré dans lequel Dumas dévoile un univers parallèle et obscur, qui a ses lois, ses coutumes, son langage et ses hiérarchies sociales ( ). L'expérience de Dumas dans ce domaine de l'amour vénal, aura été favorable à son texte, et c'est à une manière de reportage dans le Paris licencieux qu'il nous invite" (M. Chaleil, éd. de Paris).

First edition, second state with the thirteenth chapter, of this "very rare and little-known travel narrative" of Michelena y Rojos's Pacific voyage undertaken from 1840 to 1841 (Forbes).

He then joined a Hawaiian barkentine, Rosa, which was bound on a trading voyage to Australia. Michelena y Rojos also made stops at Tahiti, the Caroline Islands, the Philippines, Macao, and Singapore. The plates in this work are of interest as composite images drawn from various earlier voyage accounts such as those of Choris, Ellis and Byron, demonstrating the visual creation of an imagined reality in the Pacific.

Second and expanded edition of this account of the voyages and enterprises of Richard Jeffrey Cleveland, with an additional segment to the introduction, and an appendix including a letter from William Shaler on the subject of his voyage from Macao to the Columbia River and Northern California in 1804. The work includes his expeditions to the north-west coast of America in the brig Carolina from 1799 to 1802, and the voyage of the Lelia Byrd around South America and in the Pacific from 1803 to 1804. The account of the second voyage is significant as one of just two known accounts of the Battle of San Diego on 22 March 1803. Caught attempting to smuggle sea otter pelts out of San Diego Bay in violation of Spain's blockade against foreign trade the Lelia Byrd and the Spanish soldiers of Fort Guijarros exchanged a spectacular cannon duel across the waves; the only ship-to-shore battle on the Pacific coast between Spain and a ship of the United States. Following the battle the Lelia Byrd set sail for Hawaii, where on 23 June Cleveland landed a mare with foal, "the first horses the Hawaiians had seen" (Forbes).

Luigi Berletti (1803 - 1882)
1843. Due rarissime vedute litografiche, prese da angolazioni diverse, di Piazza della Libertà, a Udine, realizzate da Luigi Bertelli. Le due litografie probabilmente erano parte del rarissimo Album pittorico del Friuli, composto da vedute di città, paesi e castelli del territorio friulano del primo Ottocento, e stampate a partire dal 1841 con l'innovativa tecnica litografica su pietra bavarese.

La piazza nel Cinquecento e fino al 1945, era detta Piazza Contarena. La prima veduta, su disegno di Giuseppe Filippi, è datata 1842 e reca nel margine inferiore la dedica di Luigi Berletti al conte Lodovico Rota, socio dell'Accademia di Udine. La prospettiva guarda allo splendido Porticato di S. Giovanni, che si appoggia alla Torre dell'Orologio. Sulla destra del porticato, si nota la grande statua di Ercole. Sulla sinistra, la veduta include alcune arcate della Loggia del Lionello. La seconda litografia, su disegno di G.B. Cecchini, è datata 1843, ed è dedicata da Berletti al conte Antonio Beretta. La veduta prospettica è dal lato Nord della piazza, alle spalle della statua della Pace, opera dello scultore Giovan Battista Comolli, su progetto di Valentino Presani. Il basamento con panoplia è opera … [Click Below for Full Description]
