         The Mysteries of Paris

      New York: Harper and Brothers, 1843. First Edition. 1/2 morocco. Very good. 1st edition in English, preceding the New World edition (NY, 1843-1844), Dugale's edition (London, 1844), Harper's 1844 reprint, Chapman and Hall's edition (London, 1845), and all others. Contemporary half mor- occo, a small page stain here and there, but very good (the old fashioned very good, just look at the photograph) and it's a complete copy with both title pages, all 433 text pages, and the page of ads, plus the 32 page sequel (Gerolstein, 1843). Important and scarce, especially in attractive condition. A precursor (arguably, the precursor) of all proletarian novels, that is, those dealing with the conditions of the working class and the poor, preceding Gaskell's Mary Barton (1848) and Dickens Hard Times (1854). Beside the obvious, Sue addresses inequality in the courts, abuses in public hospitals, and the need for reform of the penal system, and he does so in a gifted and innovative way, that is, through the eyes of a new ideal, a 19th century Batman, working the slums as a shield against injustice, a hero who became so popular that the daily life he witnessed (and reported), forced sweeping legislative reform, helped instigate the 1848 revolution, and awakened authors everywhere to a new concept, that of the novel being intentionally utilized as a tool for propaganda, an idea that reached its zenith 9 years later, with Harriet Stowe's publication of Uncle Tom's Cabin.

A charming first edition of Dickens' classic. A Christmas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost-Story of Christmas, commonly known as A Christmas Carol, is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London by Chapman & Hall in 1843; the first edition was illustrated byJohn Leech. A Christmas Carol tells the story ofEbenezer Scrooge, an old miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past,Present, and Yet to Come. After their visits Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man.Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol at a time when the British were examining and exploringChristmas traditions from the past, such as carols, as well as new customs such asChristmas trees. He was influenced by experiences from his own past, and from the Christmas stories of other authors, including Washington Irving and Douglas Jerrold. Dickens had written three Christmas stories prior to the novella, and was inspired to write the story following a visit to the Field Lane Ragged school, one of several establishments for London's half-starved, illiterate street children. The treatment of the poor and the ability of a self-interested man redeeming himself by transforming into a more sympathetic character are the key themes of the story. There is discussion among academics as to whether this was a fully secular story, or if it is a Christian allegory.Published on 19 December, the first edition sold out by Christmas Eve; by the end of 1844 thirteen editions had been released. Most critics reviewed the novella positively. The story was illicitly copied in January 1844; Dickens took action against the publishers, who went bankrupt, reducing further Dickens's small profits from the publication. He went on to write four other Christmas stories in subsequent years. In 1849 he began public readings of the story which proved so successful he undertook 127 further performances until 1870, the year of his death. A Christmas Carol has never been out of print and has been translated into several languages; the story has been adapted many times for film, stage, opera, and other media.With A Christmas Carol, Dickens captured the zeitgeist of the mid-Victorian revival of the Christmas holiday. He has been acknowledged as an influence on the modern Western observance of Christmas and inspired several aspects of Christmas, such as family gatherings, seasonal food and drink, dancing, games, and generosity of spirit.

         Instructie der zee-vaert, door de gheheele werelt, Met een practijck, om door een nieu-ghe-inventeert instrument 'tvoornaemste vanden celester globus in planum te brengen: .Rotterdam, Abraham Migoen, [1610]. Small 4to (19.5 x 15 cm). With a woodcut device on the title-page; and 2 engraved and about 120 woodcut illustrations (mostly diagrams), all on integral leaves, including 7 full-page. Vellum (ca. 1700).

      - Bierens de Haan 601 note; Cat. bibl. Bodleianae (1843), vol. 1, p. 339; Cat. NHSM, p. 664; Crone library 123b; Van der Krogt, Globi Neerlandici, BLA IIBr; cf. STCN (1 incompl. copy of 1st ed.; 1 compl. & 2 incompl. copies of 3rd ed.). Rare 1610 second edition (revised and expanded) of the first handbook for ship's pilots in training, with more than 120 illustrations, mostly geometrical and astronomical diagrams but also a fortification plan, navigational instruments and their use, etc. It describes navigational instruments and their use in both the northern and the southern hemisphere, the determination of longitude and the declination of the sun. An appendix on the use of the astrolab largely follows Philippe van Lansberge (18 years before his principal publication on the subject) and illustrates the positions of the sun, moon and earth during eclipses. Brouck also covers the practical mathematics of geometry, trigonometry, surveying, mensuration and calendrical calculations. With the establishment of the VOC (Dutch East India Company) in 1602 and the beginning of the Twelve Years' Truce (1609-1621) between Spain and the Dutch Republic in the 80 Years' War for Dutch independence, the Netherlands saw a great pressing need for well-trained ship's pilots for global exploration and trade. Jan vanden Brouck (1566- 1626), was a schoolmaster teaching applied mathematics at Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Middelburg. He published a celestial globe in 1602 and at least in Rotterdam he set up his own school, training pilots for the merchant marine.The first and third editions include 8 volvelles, but they are not recorded in the second edition and the present copy certainly never included them. Van der Krogt notes 4 copies of the first and third editions with an engraved plate of gores for Vanden Brouck's 1602 celestial globe, but notes that the two other copies known to him (editions and locations not specified) do not include it. It is not in the present copy or the three copies that can be seen on the Internet, is not mentioned by Crone, and as far as we know it never appears in the present second edition.With occasional marginal notes in a contemporary hand. With the foot of the title-page cut short, removing the final line of the imprint; the fore-edges of 7 leaves tattered; and some small worm holes in the gutter margin near the head, mostly in quires G and H, but otherwise in good condition. Binding restored. Rare expanded and extensively illustrated second edition of the first handbook for training ships' pilots.

         First Report of the Select Committee on Shipwrecks; together with the minutes of evidence, appendix, and index. [Together with:] Second Report from the Select Committee on Shipwrecks; together with the minutes of evidence taken before them.

      London: House of Commons, 1843 - 2 works, folio (326 x 196 mm). Contemporary dark blue calf calf, recently rebacked, gilt anchor motif on spines, drab diaper-grain cloth sides, speckled edges. 20th century book plate of Robert Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and bibliophile, a discriminating collector of maritime literature. A few marks to sides, bump to top fore-edge with concomitant creasing of leaves, some gatherings toned, one plate shaved at fore-edge (with minor loss). A very good copy. 20 lithograph plates complete (8 folding, a number with hand colouring), one woodcut in the text (showing "Mr. Palmer's Life-Boat"). First and only editions of these thorough and detailed parliamentary reports, decidedly uncommon: Copac locates copies at just three British and Irish institutional libraries: National Library of Scotland, Institution of Civil Engineers (both with First and Second reports), National Maritime Museum (First Report only); OCLC adds New York Public Library, University of Pittsburgh (both with First and Second reports), University of Virginia Law Library (First Report only); the Second Report, dated 15 August 1843, is slender, consisting of just 21 pages. The chairman of both committees was the merchant and philanthropist George Palmer (1772-1853), a tireless advocate for improved means of rescue from shipwreck; he served in the navy of the East India Company between 1786 and 1799. "Palmer entered parliament for South Essex in 1836. his main concern. [being] safety at sea. He chaired two parliamentary inquiries on shipwrecks, and in 1845, against strong opposition, pushed an amendment through that finally settled the law prohibiting timber-laden ships from carrying deck cargoes. Palmer never forgot the narrow escape he and his crew had from drowning in 1788 in eastern waters [off Macao]; he took a keen interest in the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and in his later life was its vice-chairman for twenty-five years. His own design of a lifeboat was in use until 1858 [and is illustrated in the First Report]" (ODNB). In 1853 Palmer's services were recognized by the award of a gold medal from the forerunner of the RNLI, the Royal National Institute for the Preservation of Life from Shipwreck. The committee also included Gladstone (at that time president of the Board of Trade), Admiral Dundas, and Sir Charles Napier. The enquiry was established to consider two main issues, "the loss of British vessels and the means of diminishing that loss in future" and "the means of preserving the lives and property of shipwrecked persons". The six salient points covered were: 1. the character of ships, 2. the competency of masters and mates, 3. the facility of obtaining good pilots, 4. harbours of refuge, 5. lighthouses, beacons, &c., 6. charts and compasses. Some 78 witnesses were called and questioned, including the Duke of Wellington, their testimony being recorded in full; these are all named and a list of their expenses included. The attractive plates illustrate proposals for a cliff crane, fixed and floating breakwaters, Captain Bullock's safety beacon for the Goodwin Sands, Mitchell and Son's screw pile lighthouse ("erected on a sand bank at the entrance of the Wyre"), other lighthouses, screw moorings and harbour refuges.

         Narrative of a journey to Kalat, including an account of the insurrection at that place in 1840; and a memoir on eastern Baluchistan.

      Bentley London 1843 - First edition. 8vo., xii, 463pp., 4 pages ads at beginning, large folding map, original cloth gilt, spine faded, an excellent copy. The rare separately published account of the author's journey to Kalat. Masson (1800–1853), formerly James Lewis, served briefly in the King's 24th regiment of foot and then enlisted on 12 October 1821 as a private soldier in the East India Company's infantry, later transferring to the Bengal European artillery. He was present at the siege of Bharatpur in 1826 but deserted in early July 1827 in Agra and changed his name. Masson travelled to Afghanistan and embarked on a decade of pioneering travel and antiquarian investigation. During this period he collected well over 80,000 ancient coins and other objects which first provided a chronology of the dynasties of central Asia in the unknown centuries after the death of Alexander the Great. From 1834 Masson published news of his discoveries in the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. The following year he was recruited by the East India Company as news writer in Afghanistan, in return for a free pardon for his desertion and a small allowance. Masson became bitterly critical of Britain's Afghan policy in the years before the First Anglo-Afghan War. He left Afghanistan in 1838 and during the ensuing British invasion remained in Sind, writing up his researches and travels for publication in London (Ariana antiqua, 1841, and Narrative of Various Journeys, 3 vols., 1842). In attempting to return to Afghanistan in 1840, he became accidentally embroiled in the Baluchistan revolt and was imprisoned by the British authorities without either charge or good reason (described in Narrative of a Journey to Kalat) - ODNB.

         Considerations on the Present State of Navigation by Steam

      1843 - First edition. 8vo. Modern quarter navy morocco, spine gilt, pages washed and reinforced, but text entirely legible. 30pp. Stockholm, L.J. Hjerta, Dedicated to Sir George Cockburn, in this article Ross resumes his advocacy of steam navigation first outlined in Blackwoods Magazine in 1827. That article follows these ?considerations? which survey developments in the field, include naval tactics at war for said vessels, and moots potential harbours of refuge at Stranfer and Loch Ryan. Ross produced this work during his stint as consul to Stockholm, which he held from 1839-46. By this time, he had already achieved lasting fame for his two expeditions in search of a North-West Passage. His commitment to steam ships was proven in 1829 when he controversially opted to take the steam vessel Victory on yet another voyage to the Arctic. Very rare.

         A Christmas Carol. In Prose. Being A Ghost Story of Christmas. With illustrations by John Leech.

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1843 - Octavo. Original light reddish-brown vertical fine-ribbed cloth, spine and front cover decorated and lettered gilt, sides stamped in blind, green endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a red cloth chemise and red quarter morocco slipcase. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Front hinge starting, rear hinge cracked but holding, text block sound, couple of marks to rear free endpaper. An excellent copy in bright cloth, in unusually nice condition,with uncommonly well-preserved spine panel. Hand-coloured etched frontispiece and 3 steel-engraved plates after Leech, wood-engravings within the text by W. J. Linton after Leech; title page printed in blue & red. First edition, first impression, first issue, with "Stave I" on the first page of text and green endpapers, and all the first edition textual points. The hand-coloured green endpapers, Dickens's original choice for his lavish gift book, proved a disappointment. The colour tended to dust off and smudge, so the endpapers were changed to yellow, not requiring hand work. Probably in the middle of binding, as demand grew faster than the current endpaper stock, it was decided to use up the green paper, and thereafter it was used indiscriminately with yellow, but discarded again when the initial supply of green became exhausted. Primary copies therefore occur with either green or yellow endpapers, some collectors preferring green as the author's original prepublication choice.

         Instructie der zee-vaert, door de gheheele werelt, ... Met een practijck, om door een nieu-ghe-inventeert instrument 'tvoornaemste vanden celester globus in planum te brengen: ...Rotterdam, Abraham Migoen, [1610]. Small 4to (19.5 x 15 cm). With a woodcut device on the title-page; and 2 engraved and about 120 woodcut illustrations (mostly diagrams), all on integral leaves, including 7 full-page. Vellum (ca. 1700).

      Bierens de Haan 601 note; Cat. bibl. Bodleianae (1843), vol. 1, p. 339; Cat. NHSM, p. 664; Crone library 123b; Van der Krogt, Globi Neerlandici, BLA IIBr; cf. STCN (1 incompl. copy of 1st ed.; 1 compl. & 2 incompl. copies of 3rd ed.). Rare 1610 second edition (revised and expanded) of the first handbook for ship's pilots in training, with more than 120 illustrations, mostly geometrical and astronomical diagrams but also a fortification plan, navigational instruments and their use, etc. It describes navigational instruments and their use in both the northern and the southern hemisphere, the determination of longitude and the declination of the sun. An appendix on the use of the astrolab largely follows Philippe van Lansberge (18 years before his principal publication on the subject) and illustrates the positions of the sun, moon and earth during eclipses. Brouck also covers the practical mathematics of geometry, trigonometry, surveying, mensuration and calendrical calculations. With the establishment of the VOC (Dutch East India Company) in 1602 and the beginning of the Twelve Years' Truce (1609-1621) between Spain and the Dutch Republic in the 80 Years' War for Dutch independence, the Netherlands saw a great pressing need for well-trained ship's pilots for global exploration and trade. Jan vanden Brouck (1566- 1626), was a schoolmaster teaching applied mathematics at Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Middelburg. He published a celestial globe in 1602 and at least in Rotterdam he set up his own school, training pilots for the merchant marine.The first and third editions include 8 volvelles, but they are not recorded in the second edition and the present copy certainly never included them. Van der Krogt notes 4 copies of the first and third editions with an engraved plate of gores for Vanden Brouck's 1602 celestial globe, but notes that the two other copies known to him (editions and locations not specified) do not include it. It is not in the present copy or the three copies that can be seen on the Internet, is not mentioned by Crone, and as far as we know it never appears in the present second edition.With occasional marginal notes in a contemporary hand. With the foot of the title-page cut short, removing the final line of the imprint; the fore-edges of 7 leaves tattered; and some small worm holes in the gutter margin near the head, mostly in quires G and H, but otherwise in good condition. Binding restored. Rare expanded and extensively illustrated second edition of the first handbook for training ships' pilots.

         Das altgriechische Theatergebäude. Nach sämmtlichen bekannten Überresten dargestellt auf neun Tafeln.

      Potsdam, Ferdinand Riegel 1843 - in-folio, [4]-8 pp., avec des figures dans le texte, et 9 planches lithographiées sur fond teinté, cartonnage imprimé (reliure de l'éditeur). Manques de carton au dos, rousseurs abondantes. Unique édition. Johann Heinrich Strack (1805-1880) n'était pas archéologue, mais architecte rattaché à l'école berlinoise de Schinkel : après avoir commencé par des commandes princières destinées à différents membres de la maison de Hohenzollern, il fut l'un des artisans de la transformation urbanistique du Berlin provincial et encore très "Bidermeier" du règne de Frédéric-Guillaume III en la capitale politique et industrielle apte à devenir ultérieurement le centre du Reich. Aussi cette excursion dans le domaine de l'architecture ancienne est-elle intéressante, sans doute un reflet de ses cours à l'Académie des Arts de Berlin où il enseignait aussi depuis 1839. I. Vue du théâtre d'Egeste. - II. Vue du théâtre de Patara. - III. Comparaison entre les théâtres grecs et romains. - IV. Plans des théâtres d'Epidaure, Sparte, Argos, Délos et Mantinée. - V.

         Voyage en Perse

      Paris Gide et J. Baudry -1854 1843 - 6 volumes, (comprising one volume of text and 5 of plates), folio (60.5 x 44 cm. approx.), 344 plates, all volumes with half-titles, printed titles and contents leaves at end, the set comprising: Perse ancienne, one volume text and 4 volumes plates, 243 engraved plates (numbered 1-229, with 16 bis plates - nos. 17, 23, 26, 27, 31, 41, 122, 135, 148, 157, 164, 168, 181, 181 ter, 192 and 193; plate 150-151 joined as one plate, plate 187 never printed), 13 double-page, 2 printed in colour Perse moderne, one volume plates, engraved double-page map and 100 lithographed plates (numbered 1-100, 31 with two images), without the two 8vo text volumes (as often), contemporary calf-backed marbled boards gilt, neat repairs to spines (2 sometime rebacked preserving spines), occasional light spotting, an excellent set. RARE. Voyage en Perse comprises two parts, Perse ancienne and Perse moderne, the latter providing one of the finest pictorial records of the country in the nineteenth century. Pascal Coste (1787-1879), a Marseilles-born architect, had been employed by Mehmet Ali in Egypt in 1817. In 1825 Coste returned to France with an impressive series of drawings of the architecture of Cairo, but he soon went to Egypt once again at Mehmet Ali's request, where Mehmet Ali made him chief engineer for Lower Egypt. Coste remained there for four years, during which time he accumulated many sketches, but he found the Egyptian climate difficult and returned to France in 1829. There he became a professor of architecture at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In parallel with this he travelled around France and to Germany, Belgium and Tunisia and produced several authoritative works on architecture - his Architecture arabe (1827) earned him a place on the French king's embassy to the Shah of Iran. Accordingly, in 1840 Coste and the painter Eugène Flandin, in order to recover information on the evolution of the country under the reign of Mohammad Chah Qadjar, were authorised to visit Azerbaijan, Isfahan, Shiraz and the ruins of Ecbatana, Bistun, Taq-e Bostan, Kangavar, Pasargadae and Persepolis, where he made many sketches. On his return via Baghdad, he saw the ruins of Seleucia, Ctesiphon and Babylon. He continued via Nineveh, to which the archaeologist Paul Émile Botta was also travelling to begin his excavations. The result of these travels was the present work in which they recorded their detailed findings. Eugene Napoleon Flandin (1803-1876), a student of Horace Vernet, was a French orientalist painter of history scenes, genre scenes, portraits, landscapes and urban landscapes. Wilson p.72; cf. Ghani p.641. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         The Mysteries of Paris

      New York: Harper and Brothers, 1843. First Edition. 1/2 morocco. Very good. 1st edition in English, preceding the New World edition (NY, 1843-1844), Dugale's edition (London, 1844), Harper's 1844 reprint, Chapman and Hall's edition (London, 1845), and all others. Contemporary half mor- occo, a small page stain here and there, but very good (the old fashioned very good, just look at the photograph) and it's a complete copy with both title pages, all 433 text pages, and the page of ads, plus the 32 page sequel (Gerolstein, 1843). Important and scarce, especially in attractive condition. A precursor (arguably, the precursor) of all proletarian novels, that is, those dealing with the conditions of the working class and the poor, preceding Gaskell's Mary Barton (1848) and Dickens Hard Times (1854). Beside the obvious, Sue addresses inequality in the courts, abuses in public hospitals, and the need for reform of the penal system, and he does so in a gifted and innovative way, that is, through the eyes of a new ideal, a 19th century Batman, working the slums as a shield against injustice, a hero who became so popular that the daily life he witnessed (and reported), forced sweeping legislative reform, helped instigate the 1848 revolution, and awakened authors everywhere to a new concept, that of the novel being intentionally utilized as a tool for propaganda, an idea that reached its zenith 9 years later, with Harriet Stowe's publication of Uncle Tom's Cabin.

         The Conqueror Worm, January 1843, Graham's Lady's and Gentleman's Magazine

      The Conqueror Worm, January 1843, Graham's Lady's and Gentleman's Magazine. No. CCV, Philadelphia. Original magazine-First Edition. 60 pages with 6 other pages counting front and back. This is an extraordinarily rare copy of this poem. None have shown up as extant in a major internet search. From Wikipedia: "The Conqueror Worm" was first published as a stand-alone poem in the January 1843 issue of Graham's Magazine. Shortly after, it was included among several other poems by Poe in the February 25 issue of the Saturday Museum in a feature called "The Poets & Poetry of Philadelphia: Edgar Allan Poe". It was later included in Poe's poetry collection The Raven and Other Poems in 1845. That same year, it was incorporated into "Ligeia" for the first time when the story was reprinted in the February 15, 1845, issue of the New York World. "Ligeia" was again republished with "The Conqueror Worm" in the September 27, 1845, issue of The Broadway Journal while Poe was its editor. This was not unusual for Poe, who had also incorporated poems "The Coliseum" and "To One in Paradise" into tales.*The poem seems to imply that human life is mad folly ending in hideous death, the universe is controlled by dark forces man cannot understand, and the only supernatural forces that might help are powerless spectators who can only affirm the tragedy of the scene."The Conqueror Worm" also uses the word "evermore", which would later evolve into "nevermore" in Poe's famous poem "The Raven" in 1845.[Other famous authors included in this issue are James Fenimore Cooper, William Cullen Bryant, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Condition: Very Good Plus. The pages are extremely clean. Many of the pages are loose, as is the Conqueror Worm page. There are 3 extremely small binding holes about an inch apart which held some string which has since disappeared except for a small piece in the back. Apparently these held the pages in place along with cover glue of the binding. The backing with the magazine name and issue date is complete and is glued to the binding.

         China: in a series of views displaying the scenery, architecture, and social habits of that ancient empire.

      Fisher Son & Co. London ca. 1843 - Four volumes bound in 2, 4to., engraved title-page to each volume, 124 finely engraved steel-plates after Allom, some light foxing, contemporary dark green half morocco gilt, a fine copy. Thomas Allom (1804-1872) the noted topographical artist, at a time of increased interest in China, presented the Western world with the most complete portrait of China and Chinese culture up to the middle of the nineteenth century. The engravings show architecture and scenic views, mainly of the South-East (Hong Kong, Canto, Macao, Nanjing, and Shanghai) but also include several images of Peking and Yehol. As well as his own observations, Allom includes some images based on the work of earlier artists such as Lieutenant Frederick White, R.M., Captain Stoddart, R.N. and R. Vaughan. The text was by George Wright, a protestant missionary who had spent a considerable time in China. The work was a great success and went through several editions.

         [MANUSCRIPT] Pair of letters containing reports on the Wesleyan Missionary Society in Tasmania, 1843

      Two entire letters sent from Hobart Town to London, both written in a neat secretarial hand on 3 sides of one folded folio sheet, addressed to 'The General Secretaries of the Wesleyan Missionary Society, Centenary Hall, Bishopsgate Street within, London', stamped in red and dated 1843; the address panels are annotated by the sender 'VDL Minutes No. 3 (original)' and 'VDL Minutes No. 4 (original)', respectively; one of the letters is signed by 'Nathaniel Turner, Chairman', and 'William Simpson, Secretary'; both letters are complete, clean and legible, with original folds. Two important manuscript documents relating to the early history of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Tasmania. One of the letters includes manuscript accounts of the expenditure, income and general returns for the Wesleyan Missionary Society's meetings in Hobart Town, New Norfolk, Ross, Launceston and Port Arthur. Both letters also include a series of questions and answers concerning the upholding of correct practices by the Wesleyan missions in Tasmania. These letters attest to the strong Methodist presence that had emerged in Tasmania by the first quarter of the nineteenth century. The first Methodist sermon in Tasmania was preached in Hobart in 1820, by Benjamin Carvosso. From 1825-1830 Carvosso served as the first minister of the Wesleyan Church in Hobart Town. A Wesleyan 'Society' was formed in Launceston in 1826, and by 1840 there were 14 chapels around the two towns and the midlands, as recorded in these letters.
