        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. .

        Coleccion de la Cuadratura del Circulo.

      (Santiago de Cuba, 1843). - MANUSCRIT in-8 oblong. 1f. imprimé. et 55 figures accompagnés d'un feuillet de texte explicatif (sauf la planche 54 qui est accompagnée de 2 feuillets) soit 56ff. de texte. 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. Bon exemplaire. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Dies machte neue Abbildungen von Uniformen notwendig, so daß einige Tafeln in mehreren Varianten vorkommen. Bei der Auslieferung griff der Verlag auf das jeweils noch vorhandene Material zurück, tauschte dabei überholte Tafeln durch die Varianten aus und ergänzte die noch fehlenden Blätter durch Neuerscheinungen oder abweichende Ausführungen. - Unser Exemplar mit 3 montierten Tafeln mit gedrucktem Text und Verlagstrockenstempel (2 deutsch, 1 französisch) und 27 montierten Tafeln mit montiertem Text (18 deutsch, 9 französisch). - Teils mit Randläsuren und stärker gebräunt, etwas fleckig.

        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.

A Love Story; The Chimes: A Goblin Story of Some Bells That Rang An Old Year Out and A New Year In; The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain. A Fancy for Christmas-Time.

      London: Chapman & Hall, MDCCCXLIII (1843); London: Bradbury & Evans, 1846; London: Bradbury & Evans, MDCCCXLVI (1846); London: Chapman & Hall, MDCCCXLV (1845); London: Bradbury & Evans, 1848. 5 vols., 8vo., Please see below for the discussion of states and pagination. All volumes in original publisher's cloth, each book in very good condition, with bright gilt on covers and backstrips. A Christmas Carol in it's original light-brown and vertically ribbed cloth, with all edges gilt, and green endpapers, shows some slight rubbing at foot and crown of backstrip, with minor foxing near plates, and contemporary owner's signature to first free endpaper, but otherwise bright; very good. The remainder of the Christmas Books are uniformly bound in vertically ribbed red cloth, gilt stamping and lettering on covers and backstrips; all edges gilt. The Chimes with inconsequential rubbing and a touch of wear at corners and slight occasional foxing near outer plate margins; very good. The Cricket is in marvelous condition with only a little discoloration at crown of backstrip and a stain to the lower board. The Battle of Life is largely free from mentionable defect except some slight shelf wear and a contemporary ink owner's signature to the first free endpaper. 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.

Merryfield, December 24th 1859'. A very good, clean, unfoxed and unmarked set. ----Kress C.6398. FIRST EDITION of Mill's popular and infuential treatise on inductive logic. In this work Mill formulates just five principles of inductive reasoning (known as Mill's Methods) which determine whether causes and effects are connected. This method produced a system which became an important source for all the experimental sciences. Mill's book is important in the philosophy of science, and more generally, insofar as it outlines the empirical principles Mill would use to justify his moral and political philosophies. It had a strong influence on scientists such as Dirac. An article in "Philosophy of Recent Times" has described it as an 'attempt to expound a psychological system of logic within empiricist principles. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

        Historical Notes on the Lennox or Darnley Jewel: The Property of the Queen

Chromolithographic frontispiece by Henry Shaw. [vi], 85, [1] pp. 4to. Queen Victoria bought this magnificent enamelled gold heart from the Strawberry Hill sale for £136.10 (agent Hertz), and it remains one of the most important early jewels in the Royal Collection. It is said to have been commissioned by Lady Margaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox (1515-78), for her husband Matthew Stewart, Earl of Lennox and Regent of Scotland, who fell in battle in 1571. Walpole's 1784 descriptive catalogue of Strawberry Hill and its contents described the jewel thus: "A golden heart set with jewels, and ornamented with emblematic figures enamelled, at Scottish mottoes; made by the order of the lady Margaret Douglas, mother of Henry lord Darnley, in memory of her husband Matthew Stuart, earl of Lenox and regent of Scotland, murdered by the papists." The present privately printed description was commissioned by Queen Victoria and features a fine chromolithographic frontispiece illustration of the jewel by Henry Shaw.

        A Christmas Carol. In Prose.

      London: Chapman & Hall,, 1843. Being A Ghost Story of Christmas. With illustrations by John Leech. 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 solander box. 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. Binding rolled and a little dulled, a few nicks to extremities of spine. A very good copy. First edition, first impression, first issue, with "Stave I" on the first page of text and green endpapers, all the first edition textual points. The binding differs from Todd's ordering in that the closest interval between blind-stamping left margin and left extremity of gilt wreath is 15 mm but the "D" of "Dickens" within the gilt wreath has the upper serif broken off. 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.
