Wyman, Seth
J.H. Cate, Printer, Manchester, N.H, 1843. 310pp. Original brown cloth. Spine label lacking, but paper remnant remains; spine slightly sunned; corners and spine ends worn. Bookplate on front pastedown, previous owner's ink notes on rear pastedown (alluding to the possible suppression of this work). Two leaves with spotting, occasional pencil marginalia, else quite clean internally. Very good. The thoroughgoing bad nature of the author is well described in the title and he admits that his life of crime began with shoplifting (at which he was quite adept) while barely into his teens. Most of his career was passed in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine, where even among a population renowned for its sharpness, he was able to find many a sucker. Wyman also recounts his sexual conquests, though the publisher admits that some of the salacious details have been excised. Born in 1784, Wyman died just before the publication of this work, in prison. How much moralizing has been added by the publisher it is impossible to tell, but he admits in the preface that he has published Wyman's recollections in order that readers "may see the heinousness and misery of crime, and thereby strengthen and render impregnable the noble purposes to resist temptation." But he also insists that the work is Wyman's alone, and the result is an entertaining and enlightening memoir of the life of a bad man. "Wyman was an audacious and incorrigible thief and swindler, but his prominence was more literary than criminal" - DNB. The ANB calls his memoir "a fascinating look at the social mores of the crimina … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mors supérieurs légèrement fendus.-Première et unique édition française des dessins de voyage de David Roberts en Palestine en 1838. Après un voyage écourté par la maladie, il retourne à Londres où la publication de ses dessins connut un grand succès. La qualité des lithographies de J. Stroobant et L. Haghe ont fait la renommée de cette édition. In 1838 Roberts made a long tour in the East, and accumulated a vast collection of sketches of Middle Eastern scenery which had been hardly touched by British artists before, and which appealed to the public with all the charm of novelty. The next ten years of his life were mainly spent in elaborating these materials. In February of 1839 he travelled to the Holy Land via Suez, Mount Sinai and Petra arriving in Gaza, and then on to Jerusalem. He ended his tour by spending several months visiting the biblical sites of the Holy Land, and finally returning to England at the end of 1839. Shortly after the first printing in London by David Roberts and Louis Haghe, a French version of the book was published in Brussels with the plates lithographed by F. Stroo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Smée, M. [Alfred] and E. [Edmond] de Valicourt
Paris: Roret, 1843. First edition. 16mo., 453 pp., 2 large folding engraved plates. Contemporary quarter calf with morocco label, titled with simple decorations in gilt. Joints slightly rubbed; the foredge of the first plate is a bit soiled, foxed and worn with no loss. Faint foxing on the title page only. A very good copy. Issued in the series, Manuels- Roret, this is an early manual on galvanography and the daguerreotype. Galvanography is the process of coating plates, often with silver, through the use of electricity. Silver plates made in this fashion were essential in making daguerreotypes. Edmond de Valicourt's manual on the daguerreotype comprises p. 323 - 453 and the 2 folding plates; however, p. 384 - 401 is largely devoted to Talbot's paper process. Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, fails to mention this volume, although it does list later volumes in the series Manuels-Roret.

ALISON, Archibald (1792-1867)
Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1843-59. [European History] FINELY BOUND COMPLETE SET, various editions. Nineteen volumes. Octavo (22 x 16 x 97cm). Finely bound by W.J. MANSELL, successor to James HAYDAY in contemporary tan full calf with raised bands, gilt titles to contrasting red and green labels to spine, further gilt decoration to spines, and all edges and endpapers marbled. Illustrated bookplates of George Evelyn Cower and J.J. Verdin Cooke facing one-another to front endpapers of each volume. Quite heavy spotting to endpapers and blanks of each volume - text leaves clean. Top edges toned. Light rubbing and marking to bindings. Very good. Following the conclusion of the Napoleonic wars in 1815, Scottish lawyer Archibald Jr. toured Europe before embarking on his legal career, awakening a life-long interest in politics both at home and abroad. He began writing for a living following his dismissal due to the election of a Whig government in 1830, articulating a strongly conservative, Tory political vision. His 'History of Europe During the French Revolution,' begun in 1833, was the first English-language account to be published, winning great attention and many sales around the world, despite Disraeli's caricature of the author as 'Mr. Wordy.' His History was eventually regarded as the 'Bible of the Tory Party,' consistently promoting a paternalist, anti-trade-union, anti-capitalist agenda totally at odds with the political direction of Britain in the mid-nineteenth century.

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 po … [Click Below for Full Description]

A native of Donegal, Henry studied medicine at Glasgow, St. Thomas', Guy's and St. George's. In 1811 he qualified as a regimental surgeon and joined the 66th in the Peninsula, seeing action at the Siege of Badajoz and the Battle of Vittoria; "Particularly useful for army medical services under Wellington" (Bruce). Subsequently he served with the 1st battalion for two years in India, and was involved in the invasion of Nepal. In 1817 he proceeded with the battalion to St. Helena where he remained until the death of Napoleon, whose post-mortem he attended and an account of which is given in the second volume of the present memoir.

Mors supérieurs légèrement fendus.-Première et unique édition française des dessins de voyage de David Roberts en Palestine en 1838. Après un voyage écourté par la maladie, il retourne à Londres où la publication de ses dessins connut un grand succès. La qualité des lithographies de J. Stroobant et L. Haghe ont fait la renommée de cette édition. In 1838 Roberts made a long tour in the East, and accumulated a vast collection of sketches of Middle Eastern scenery which had been hardly touched by British artists before, and which appealed to the public with all the charm of novelty. The next ten years of his life were mainly spent in elaborating these materials. In February of 1839 he travelled to the Holy Land via Suez, Mount Sinai and Petra arriving in Gaza, and then on to Jerusalem. He ended his tour by spending several months visiting the biblical sites of the Holy Land, and finally returning to England at the end of 1839. Shortly after the first printing in London by David Roberts and Louis Haghe, a French version of the book was published in Brussels with the plates lithographed by F.

The rare first edition of the American medical imprint describing a method for setting broken bones, by New York doctor Waterman Sweet. The text contains voluminous testimonials from numerous parties, all of whom confirm Sweet's bona fides and expertise. Overall, the volume seems to have been less a scholarly article on the treatment of broken bones, but rather an advertisement for Sweet's supposedly groundbreaking technique.

Charles Dickens
1843. For sale is an exceptionally rare and important First Edition of arguably the finest work of fiction of the C19th: A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens. Published by Chapman and Hall, 186 Strand, London, 1843. 166p.p., plus the publisher's double-sided advertisement leaf. This is Trial State (pre-publication), with title page in green and red, and green powdered endpapers. These endpapers are still apparent but very worn. Thus, the reason they were changed. Bound in the publisher's original salmon-red cloth, with stamping in blind to the boards, and in gilt to the spine. This wonderful volume has: "Four hand colored steel-engraved plates by John Leech";"Four black and white wood-engraved illustrations by W.J. Linton"; "The title page in printed in blue and green" "dated 1844 on title page". Externally it remains in very pleasing order indeed, with the cloth brighter than often encountered. A binding which is, in general, prone to damage, this example is in really very good order, which makes it all the more desirable. A neat professional repair to the head of the spine. Internally broadly bright, but with the marking to the pages which is often associated with this title. Overall, this is an opportunity to own a cornerstone of English literature, and one not to be missed. Boasting a truly outstanding publisher's binding, being Trial State, condition, it comes very highly recommended indeed. Shipped Worldwide. [Attributes: First Edition]
