        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. Eckel pp. 110–15; Smith II, 4; Todd, The Book Collector, 1961, pp. 449–54. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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.

        Nevadaville, Alt. 9,000 Feet - Gilpin Co. , Colo.

      Central City, CO: Lachlan McLean. Sepia toned photograph depicting the mining town of Nevadaville, Colorado circa 1880s. Photograph is on thick cardstock and measures 20" x 24" and has a cardboard frame which has been taped to frame by previous owner. Photograph is in very good condition. Photo has light foxing near top of photo and on title pastedown; a 2" tear starts on the left edge near the bottom, but is covered by framing; framing has moderate toning and wear; heavy toning and moderate wear on verso of photograph. Contrast is excellent. The image depicts a well-established town with many homes built on the hillside, dirt roads through town, a large schoolhouse, a church and cemetery, and many businesses on a main street. Looking closely one can see foundations of buildings that have been torn down as well as the lack of people in the streets. Although the lack of people is curious, it could be explained by being an early time of day. Tailings, mills and other equipment throughout town speak of the mining taking place. In the foreground a man in a horse drawn carriage heads up a rocky road; in the background snow-covered peaks surround the town. The detail and clarity of this image is enthralling. The creator of this image, Lachlan McLean (1843-1929) , was a known mining photographer based out of Central City, Colorado and produced photographs depicting the hardships of mining and stereoviews of scenery throughout Gilpin County, Colorado. The town of Nevadaville was a gold and silver mining town. It was also known as Nevada, Nevada City and Bald Mountain. Located one mile west of Central City, it was established in 1859 and soon boasted a population of between 4,000 and 6,000 residents. The California Mine just outside of town was a major producer of minerals, becoming the deepest mine in Colorado at a depth of 2,250 ft. It was said to be a rowdy place during that time. By 1900 the gold and silver yield declined and the population fell drastically. Today it is almost a ghost town. Although this image is undated, it was probably taken circa the 1880's when the heyday of the town was over but the mines were still productive. A more fascinating photograph is hard to find. No copies of this image in commerce or OCLC. .

Plein veau raciné, dos lisse orné, étiquette de maroquin collée sur le plat supérieur avec, en lettres dorées: "Cuadratura del Circulo". Curieux manuscrit cubain sur la Quadrature du Cercle, ilustré de 55 figures hors-texte commentés par l'auteur sur un feuillet placé en regard. Dans un discours préliminaire l'auteur, qui était avocat à Santiago de Cuba, expose les réflexions qui l'avaient amené à composer cet ouvrage. Sur la premier contreplat figure la note manuscrite suivante signée W. H. Bliss, june 1873: "Two copies bought at the same time for 5 l - one of which, with an official petition signed by and relating to the author, and dated 'Santiago de Cuba Dec. 6 1847', to R. Louis-Philippe begging him to accept a copy of the work, was sent to Stonyhurst". Il s'agit peut-être de William Henry Bliss (1835-1911), archiviste anglais qui devint notamment spécialiste des manuscrits au Vatican. Le manuscrit est doté d'une page de titre imprimée.

        Five lines from the end of an ALS, Signed. ?I shall be glad to hear from you or to see you, next week. Always Dear Mrs Hood, Faithfully Yours Charles Dickens.?

      [1843] 1843 - 11 x 5.5cm. Undated. Pilgrim Letters, vol. III, p534. This section from an ALS addressed to Jane Hood, wife of Thomas, is tentatively dated in pencil ?Jan 40?, but Pilgrim Letters dates it to late July 1843. Dickens only made the acquaintance of Thomas Hood after the latter?s return from abroad in 1840 and his review of Master Humphrey in The Athenaeum of 7 November 1840. By 13 April 1841, Hood was able to say in a letter: ?Boz is a very good fellow, and he and I are very good friends? It seems this fragment was written in response to a letter from Mrs Hood to Dickens of July 1843. Dickens had urgently requested that a fund be set up to assist the seven children of actor Edward ?Elton? Elt, who had tragically perished when the vessel he was sailing in struck rocks off the Northumberland coast. Mrs Hood responded on July 27th by suggesting that her husband Thomas could write a poetical address for the occasion.

        An Essay on the Tongue, in Functional Derangement of the Stomach and Bowels; With Some Observations on the Tongue's Aspect in Organic Disease of the Lungs.

      Simpkin, Marshall and Co., London 1843 - Presentation copy -- signed by Williams on FFEP. 8vo. 22.5 by 14.5 cm. xi, 119 pp. Williams was the senior physician to the Essex and Colchester Hospital. This essay provides "some observation of the tongue's aspect in organic disease of the lungs". Williams argues that observations of the tongue in a distressed patient can hold the key to diagnosing the ailment which afflicts the patient. He provides an abundance of statistical evidence, based on clinical observation. He writes, "I was induced to enter upon this inquiry from observing that the mucous membrane and papillae of the tongue presented varying aspects in functional disturbances of the stomach." This title predates Yaggy's book on cancer of the tongue, and Butlin's book on diseases of the tongue, by 40 years, and is contemporaneous with Harris' paper on the teeth, lips and tongue, read before the American Society of Dental Surgeons in 1841. Thus, it is perhaps the first, and certainly an early, study on the relationship of the appearance of the tongue to health and disease. Not in Garrison & Morton. A few neat horizontal tears of cloth on the spine. General wear besides. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

J H Hawkins Atty.”William Henry Daingerfield (1808-1878) moved from Maryland to San Antonio in 1837. He was elected the 2nd Mayor of San Antonio in 1838, becoming Chief Justice of Bexar County the same year. In 1839, Daingerfield was appointed Commissary of Purchases of the Army of the Republic of Texas. From 1840-1842, he served as a Senator in the Fifth and Sixth Texas Congresses, resigning in 1842 to become Secretary of the Treasury in the cabinet of President Sam Houston. It was as Houston’s Secretary of the Treasury that Daingerfield signed this document. In February 1844, he became Texas Minister to the Netherlands, Belgium, and the Hanse towns (the maritime cities of Germany), serving until annexation. Smallwood S.B.”Steamboat” Fields practiced law in La Grange in 1839 and served as Fayette County tax assessor from1840 until his death in 1846. He represented Fayette County in the Texas House of Representatives from 1842-1843 and was editor of the LaGrange “Intelligencer” from 1844-1845.Rutersville College was located in Rutersville, seven miles northeast of La Grange. It was the first chartered Protestant college in Texas. The coeducational school opened in 1840 with 63 students. It was the dream of Martin Ruter, a Methodist missionary from Tennessee and superintendent of the Methodist mission in Texas, who had died in 1838. The town of Rutersville developed simultaneously with the college. Enrollment reached 194 by 1844-1845, but Indian attacks, the departure of students for the Mexican War, and the establishment of Baylor University in 1845 caused a decline in the number of students. In 1856, Rutersville College was merged with Texas Monumental and Military Institute.

        Sermons on the Holy Catholic Church and Its Privileges [signed]

      James Burns, Simkin Marshall, Addisons ,, and Bailey, London, Preston, Liverpool 1843 - xv, 244 pages. Fair condition only, with spine perished and boards all but detached. Foxing to first few and final few leaves, pastedowns grubby. Textblock remains secure. Bookplate of Rev. John Cunningham to front pastedown, with authorial gift inscription to him on verso of front free endpaper. List of subscribers pp xi-xv. An interesting copy of an uncommon work: At time of publication the author was curate of Childwall [Liverpool], in 1845 he was preferred from there to the perpetual curacy of St. Philip's, Stepney - to the library of which he donated this copy [head of title page]. In early March 1847, evidently in haste, he re-gifted it to one Rev. John Cunningham: "My Dear Cunningham, As I promised you a copy of my Sermons on the Church, and as I have not one by me at present, I will give you the one in the library, and replace it. Yours ever faithfully, James Bonwell". It is most likely that this is the Rev. John Cunningham [b. London 1823] who sailed from England on the brigg Queen to arrive "in St. John's after a stormy six weeks passage May 1847" to assume pastoral duties among the communities around Burgeo Newfoundland [Newfoundland Quarterly, Vital Statistics of Burgeo, Rev. H.W. Cunningham ed.]. Rev. John Cunningham ministered there until 1894, assisted by his son H. W. from 1884-1891. The Rev. Henry Ward Cunningham would go on to be rector of St. George's church in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In that capacity he is now most noted for presiding over numerous Titanic-related services and accompanying the Minia (and her Captain his parishoner) on the quest to recover bodies around that disaster site. The deck chair the Minia crew salvaged was given to Cunningham in appreciation; his family later donated it to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax. He eventually settled in Hantsport, Nova Scotia. We are sorry to report that from 1859 the Rev. James Bonwell is most noted for (while married) the seduction of a young woman and the disposal of their offspring. Size: 8vo. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

The Haunted Man reveals some shelfwear to the cloth with a small split at the tail of the lower joint and the occasional freckle of foxing, otherwise very good. All are housed in a blue morocco pull-off case with gilt titling, and each (except A Christmas Carol) has a blue cloth jacket. First editions of all five of Dickens's Christmas books. With engravings by D. Maclise, R. Doyle, C. Stanfield, J. Leech, J. Tenniel, and F. Stone, Thompson, G. Dalziel, E. Dalziel, T. Williams, Swain, and Groves. A Christmas Carol is the high point and the crucial component in any set of Dickens's Christmas Books. Dickens kept its production on a short leash and anecdotes abound about his pleasure or displeasure with the differently colored endpapers, the color of the cloth for the binding, the typography and so forth. Oddly enough, despite Dickens' personal attention to this edition, it is not a particularly well-made title. Coupled with the legions of fans who often read their copies "to death," it comes as no surprise that original and well-preserved copies of this book, in its correct state, seldom appear on the market. The Chimes, written in Genoa, Italy, was commercially more successful than A Christmas Carol and Dickens worked hard to make this second Christmas book a worthy successor. The Cricket... was grew from the idea to begin a weekly periodical which would've been called "The Cricket," though was abandoned quickly for a more important venture and the founding of The Daily News. The Cricket was wildly successful, doubling in circulation of both its predecessors. Dickens wrote The Battle of Life during a period of recuperation needed after illness attributed to over-working, despite being seriously indisposed he managed to complete the work, while working on Dombey and Son, though it was not as successful as his other Christmas books thus far. The Haunted Man... was the last of the Christmas books, and despite requiring a final rally from the author to avoid disappointing the public, the book is considered the least interesting and lowest grossing of the Christmas books, the issue of 20,000 had not completely sold when the author died. All books are in their most desirable states, as follows: A Christmas Carol...: [i-viii], [1]-166, [2, ads] pp. First edition, first issue. Green endpapers; "Stave I" on pp. 1; uncorrected text throughout; red-and-blue printed title page, with four color etchings and four woodcuts, full-page color etchings with tissue guards intact. The Chimes...: [i-viii], [1]-175, [1, imprint] pp. First edition, first issue. The name of the publishers is a part of the the vignette title page as per the first issue. 11 woodcuts in text and steel engraved frontis and titlepage. The Cricket on the Hearth...: [i-viii], [1]-174, [2, ads] pp. First edition, first issue. The advertisement leaf (pp. 175) is in the first state with the two lines above OLIVER TWIST in italics. This is especially notable as Walter E. Smith (Charles Dickens in the Original Cloth, 1983) writes that the above information is "the best indication of early copies," and that "I have found the second state of the advertisement in all but a few copies of the first edition that I reviewed" (43). With steel engraved frontis and titlepage, and 12 woodcuts in text. The Battle of Life...: [i-viii], [1-3], 4-175, [3, imprint and ads]. First edition. The present issue does not contain 'A LOVE STORY' in type below the title vignette and appears only in a scroll borne by a winged cupid. There is no type insertion to the engraved titlepage. Terminal ads announce the publication in parts of Dombey and Son, and the bound volume of Oliver Twist. In addition to the engraved frontis and titlepage there are 11 woodcuts in the text. The Haunted Man and the Ghosts Bargain...: [i-viii], [1]-188 pp., with engraved frontis and title page, and 15 woodcuts in the text. Smith II 4, 5, 6, 8, 9. Eckell 116-134.
