Provenance In 1865, Mathilde Wesendonck, who lent the manuscript for publication in 1871; the conductor and composer Siegfried Ochs, Berlin; after 1920 held in the legendary collection of Louis Koch, Frankfurt. Browned; minor creasing, bleeding and stains; lower outer corner of second leaf torn away and professionally repaired, not affecting notation. . The only complete autograph of the work. WWV p. 300.

Boerner (ca. 1920), p. 66 (recording the manuscript as being held Siegfried Ochs collection). The first edition by Fritzsch, Leipzig (1872), is based on the present autograph. Wagner composed this piece for the solemn reinterment of Carl Maria von Weber's remains in Dresden on December 15, 1844. Weber had originally been buried in London, where he died in 1826. Wagner and others fought for the "repatriation" of the body. "After we had placed the coffin in the little mortuary chapel of the Catholic cemetery in [Dresden-]Friedrichstadt... we proceeded the following morning to lower it formally into the vault we had prepared... The ceremony closed with the performance of a poem I had written and set to music, aud though it presented many difficulties for a male chorus, the combined efforts of our best opera singers achieved a splendid rendition." Wagner, My Life, p. 298. Autographs of entire works by Wagner are very rare to the market.

        The Illustrated London News. Volume I, I-XXXIV (Saturday, 14 May - Saturday, 31 December, 1842). (34 ISSUES. Vol. 1, 1-34). [FIRST ISSUE, FIRST COMPLETE VOLUME, FIRST COMPLETE YEAR].

      London, William Little, 1843 (i.e. 1842). - The paper's first 34 issues bound in one volume. Imperial folio. Paginated consecutively. Pp. vi, 554. Illustrated throughout. Hardcover, bound in the original publisher's half calf and marbled boards, spine decorated, lettered and dated in gilt, sides gilt ruled; binding rubbed & chafed in places, worn in places, restored in places, withal a good binding; few closed tears without loss at bottom of leaves. In a very good condition. Overall a well preserved, tightly bound, clean, presentable copy. ~ First edition. The paper's first issue, first complete volume, first complete year. Published as a volume with Title, Preface and Index, in 7 January, 1843. Rare survivor, a landmark in the history of journalism. The Illustrated London News was the world's first illustrated weekly newspaper. The first issue, 16 pages with 32 woodcuts, appeared on Saturday, 14 May, 1842, marking a revolution in journalism and news reporting. Completely exceeding the publishers' expectations, it had to be reprinted several times that day; the issue went through five reprints and sold 26,000 copies; the present issue is of the fourth printing. (Issues 4-8; 10-16; 18-20; 24; 27; 28; 30; 34 are first reprint; issue no. 2 is 3rd reprint; no. 9 is 2nd reprint.) Five issues later, it was time for jubilation: "Probably, in the whole annals of Newspaper History, the triumphant success of 'The Illustrated London News' is without a parallel; it has received from the public a welcome, warmer and wider than we could anticipated even in the buoyant enthusiasm of our first ambition. From the length and breadth of the Empire we have received the most flattering testimonials." The present volume contains all first 34 issues and a Supplement. Each issue is stamped at bottom with the legendary red Tax Stamp. Also present is Issue no. 15, a rare collectible in itself, which appeared with the erroneous header "No. 10, July 16" instead of "No. 15, August 20". It is neatly corrected here by contemporary hand.

        Printed circular sent to his associate George Ranken in Bathurst; titled "A Letter to the Constituency of New South Wales to which is subjoined the substance of a speech delivered in the Legislative Council of the Colonyon Tuesday, 31st October, 1843..."

      Sydney: no imprint, 1843. Pamphlet, 16pp., folded, addressed and sealed with Sydney postmark for December 1843; rubbed, a few leaves shaved at margin with slight loss, good overall. Rare pamphlet by the good Reverend Lang, in his new political role of member for the Port Phillip District, advocating more funding for the church and 'protesting against the reckless and extravagant expenditure of the Colonial Government.'In 1843 Lang was elected member for the Port Phillip District in the Legislative Council of New South Wales. He tackled the task with typical enthusiasm, bewailing the lack of true representation, over-taxation and other ills of remote government, and soon threatened secession of the district from New South Wales (Lang likened the situation to the North American colonies in the later eighteenth-century and earned some ire in the process). Although this pamphlet principally concerns the fortunes of the Church and allegedly misplaced government parsimony, Lang does make passing mention of his involvement in a deputation of members for Port Phillip.The circular was folded and sealed for the post, and bears the address of the important Bathurst pastoralist and settler George Ranken, one of the first to take up land in the region. Ranken had earlier leased property from John Piper in Sydney, and was one of the first to be granted land in Bathurst, naming his property Kelloshiel, to which he and his wife moved in 1823. As a result of its delivery sans envelope, the rear cover is rubbed and postmarked, and the text of a few leaves shaved at the fore-edge margin where opened.The pamphlet is rare, it bears no imprint and was never intended for publication, being distributed to members of Lang's circle such as the Ranken. Ferguson records two copies held in the Mitchell and National libraries respectively. The present copy, with its attractive original evidence of dissemination beyond the mountains, is desirable as an expressive historical object. Ferguson 3644.

        Two Years in China

      London: Saunders and Otley,, 1843. Narrative of the Chinese Expedition from its Formation in April, 1840, to the Treaty of Peace in August, 1842. With an Appendix, containing the Most Important of the General Orders & Despatches published during the above period. Second Edition. Octavo. Original brown cloth neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, ornamental blind blocking on sides, endleaves renewed. Stamp of Exeter City Library on title verso, blank margin of p. 239, and final leaf; a few neat ink or pencil annotations and corrections to the text (largely following the errata) but showing a degree of familiarity with naval ordnance of the East India Company ship Nemesis, opium exportation and the "devoted patriotism" of Tartar troops. A nice copy with the half-title, errata leaf and publishers' terminal advertisements. Second edition, first published in the previous year, scarce: Copac records only 4 copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (Edinburgh, Cambridge, Kings College London, SOAS), OCLC adding only a further 3 (Hong Kong, Leipzig, Amsterdam). McPherson (1812-1867) "was appointed surgeon to the army in Madras in 1836. Between 1840 and 1842 he served with the 37th grenadier regiment in China, and he was severely wounded at Chuenpe (Chuanbi). He told of his experiences in his Two Years in China (1842)" (ODNB). This is a spirited first hand account of the First Opium War (1839-42), "[McPherson was] an army medical officer, brilliant and infuriating... [whose] service had even taken him to China, during the brief British invasion of the interior in the First Opium War. It was a vacillating, uncertain campaign, and he had hovered on the edge of diplomatic meetings, been blasted into the air ('exalted several feet', he remarks) by concealed mines, and hidden under mattresses with escaping envoys, as they fled from shipwreck and angry Chinese forces" (Richardson, Classical Victorians: Scholars, Scoundrels and Generals in Pursuit of Antiquity, Cambridge 2013, p. 74)

        Researches Respecting Quaternions, First Series". Read November 13, 1843. Published in The Transactions of Royal Irish Academy. Vol. XXI, Part II. 1848, pp. 199-296

      FIRST EDITION OF WILLIAM HAMILTON'S FIRST FULL PUBLICATION OF HIS RESEARCH ON QUATERNIONS, "a turning point in the development of mathematics" that "made possible the creation of the general theory of relativity" (Pickering; Printing and the Mind of Man, 334). Pristine unbound original paper housed in custom leather clamshell case. This is also the first published introduction of the term and idea of quaternions, an extension of complex numbers to four-dimensional space, integrating time and space into the first non-commutative mathematical system - an innovation comparable in import during its time to the invention of non-Euclidean geometry (Schiller, Schiller File, 56). "Hamilton's first presentation of [his work on quaternions] was a speech to the Royal Irish Academy in 1843" (Life of Sir William Rowan Hamilton, Vol. 2, pp. 573). The first exposition of his ideas in print, however, did not appear until this 1847 Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy. Just prior to publication, Hamilton, in a letter to Professor Augustus De Morgan dated May 7, 1847, wrote: "My manuscript researches respecting quaternions and their application to geometry and physics, having attained a considerable extent, and a number of scattered notices (themselves by this time not very small in bulk), having been printed, I am urged by my friends in Dublin, and am myself now desirous, to make at least a beginning of that more full and formal publication which I have all along intended. After many hesitations as to whether I should not at once proceed to the parts which are more likely to interest and not to shock mathematical readers in general, I have decided on following a more historical order; and have handed it to the Committee of Publication of the Royal Irish Academy, who have transmitted it to their printers, a Paper entitled 'Researches Respecting Quaternions, First Series'; in which paper I have endeavoured to insert nothing with the principles of which I was not familiar at the time of making my first communication [speech] to the Academy on quaternions" (ibid). "Hamilton spent years trying to discover a three-dimensional number system. He was only successful when he ventured into four-dimensions and on 16 October 1843 discovered quaternions" (ibid). The invention of quaternions made possible a four-element vector that can be used to encode any rotation in a three-dimensional coordinate system (PMM, 334). In fact, "Hamilton spent years trying to discover a three-dimensional number system [and] was only successful when he ventured into four-dimensions and on 16 October 1843 discovered quaternions" (ibid). Hamilton said about quaternions: "Time is said to have only one dimension, and space to have three dimensions. ... The mathematical quaternion partakes of both these elements; in technical language it may be said to be 'time plus space', or 'space plus time'" (Petkov, Space, Time and Spacetime, 34). "Quaternions were the first non-commutative number system to be investigated in detail, and Hamilton's discovery that a consistent and useful system of algebra could be constructed without obeisance to the commutative law of multiplication was comparable in importance to the invention of non-Euclidean geometry" (ibid). Eventually, "quaternions led to vector analysis, and were eventually superseded by the latter, which has become of the greatest importance in mathematical physics and was developed by F.F. B. Riemann and E. B. Christoffel into tensor analysis. This made possible the creation of the general theory of relativity" (ibid). CONDITION & DETAILS: Royal Irish Academy. Small folio. (13 x 10.5 inches; 325 x 263mm). [1]. 151-199 (Haughton paper), [199-297] (Hamilton paper), 311-341 (Robinson paper), [1]. Pristine, never bound original copy of Hamilton's paper, complete with original table-of-contents for the volume into which it would have gone; also includes an unbound original copy of the paper prior to Hamilton's, the complete signature of Samuel Haughton's "On the Equilibrium and Motion of solid and fluid Bodies" as well as the complete signature for the paper following Hamilton's, Thomas Romney Robinson's "On the effect of Heat in lessening the Affinities of the Elements of Water". The papers are housed in a gorgeous clamshell case built to replicate the volume into which the pages would have been bound. Five raised gilt-ruled bands at the spine; gilt-devices in each compartment; red and black morocco, gilt-lettered spine labels The case is half-calf over marbled paper boards; the edges of the case are hardboard covered in cream linen. Silk hand ribbon to open case. As said, the pages are pristine, clamshell case equally so.

        Sailing Directions for the Inner Route to Torres Strait. From Break-Sea Spit to Booby Island

      Port Stephens: Printed by the Author, 1843. Small quarto, iv, 14 pp., fine in twentieth century dark morocco with gilt lettering. Privately printed by King in Port Stephens. Exceptionally rare: printed only for private circulation on King's private press in Port Stephens (at the time he was still serving in the region as the representative of the Australian Agricultural Company). This is the only copy of this book Hordern House has ever sold, here for the second time. The rarest of King's works, and of signal importance for coastal voyage generally and the Great Barrier Reef specifically, this is a rare and attractive survival.In his preface King comments that "I have been induced to print off a few copies" because he felt that sailing captains were losing what he considered their prejudice against what King had called the "inner route", a much quicker passage even though it required the ships to anchor at night. This was the first separate edition of these sailing directions, which had previously only been published as an article in the New South Wales Calendar and General Post Office Directory. Wantrup notes that the work is "Very rare... This work was published privately in a pioneering settlement by one of the great Australian discoverers and the foremost native-born Australian of his day. Unfortunately it is a very rare work and no copy has appeared for sale in many years" (Australian Rare Books).It is testament to the work's importance that the Hydrographic Office of the Admiralty republished it in 1849, together with added notes by Blackwood on the "outer route", around the time that the Admiralty also published Australian Views North-East Coast (see previous).The Ingleton copy with his distinctive bookplate.

        Leopold Auenbrugger‘s . Neue Erfindung mittelst des Anschlagens an den Brustkorb, als eines Zeichens, verborgene Brust-Krankheiten zu entdecken., Im lateinischen Original herausgegeben, übersetzt und mit Anmerkungen versehen von Dr. S. Ungar. Begleitet mit einem Vorworte von Joseph Skoda, Doctor der Medicin, Primararzt am k.k. allgem. Krankenhause zu Wien, &c. &c.

      Wien, J.B. Wallishausser, 1843 - außerordentlich seltene EA der deutschen Übersetzung von Auenbruggers berühmter Schrift "Inventum novum", ein "Meilenstein in der Geschichte der Medizin" (HEIRS OF HIPPOCRATES 599). Auenbrugger (1722-1809) hatte schon bei van Swieten gelernt, dass durch das Beklopfen des Abdomens manche Krankheiten (z.B. Bauchwassersucht) festgestellt werden konnten. Sieben Jahre lang studierte er die verschiedenen Schallphänomene, die beim Beklopfen des Brustkorbs mit den Fingern entstanden, bevor er die Ergebnisse publizierte ("Inventum novum.", 1761). Die wissenschaftliche Anerkennung der Bedeutung dieser Entdeckung blieb ihm jedoch bis kurz vor seinem Lebensende verwehrt; insbesondere van Swieten selbst verschmähte seine Arbeit und schwieg sie tot. Maximilian Stoll - damals Direktor der Medizinischen Klinik am Spanischen Hospital - probierte die neue Methode aus und lobte sie in einem seiner Bücher, aber dies hatte keine weiteren Konsequenzen. Auenbrugger verließ das Spanische Spital in Wien enttäuscht und zog sich in eine Privatpraxis zurück; die Perkussion geriet in Vergessenheit. Erst durch Jean Nicolas Corvisart (1755-1821) erhielt sie ihre verdiente Anerkennung; er entdeckte die Bemerkung von Stoll und gab 1808 eine französische Übersetzung des "Inventum novum." heraus. Joseph Skoda (1805-1881) gehörte zu den besten Klinikern der jüngeren Wiener Medizinischen Schule und begründete nach eingehender Beschäftigung mit den Methoden der Perkussion und Auskultation die moderne physikalische Diagnostik. Seine eigene "Abhandlung über Perkussion und Auskultation" (Wien 1839) wurde weltbekannt. - NORMAN 86; HIRSCH/H. I, 225 Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 182 8°, OBr., unbeschnitten, in mod.

        Christmas Carol In Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas. With Illustrations by John Leech.

      London Chapman & Hall 1843 - First Edition, First Issue in Original Cloth DICKENS, Charles. A Christmas Carol. In Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas. With Illustrations by John Leech. London: Chapman & Hall, 1843. First edition, first issue: i.e., "Stave I"; text entirely uncorrected; green-coated endpapers; blue half-title; red and blue title. Foolscap octavo (6 7/16 x 4 inches; 162 x 101 mm). [i-viii], [1]-166, [2, publisher's ads]. Four inserted hand-colored steel-engraved plates by and after Leech and four black and white text wood-engravings by W.J. Linton after Leech. Original cinnamon vertically-ribbed cloth. Covers decoratively stamped in blind, front cover and spine decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt, all edges gilt. Green coated endpapers are exceptionally clean. Back outer hinge repaired but with no new cloth. Bottom of spine with some minor wear and a tiny chip. Binding slightly skewed. A few signatures sprung, but overall the binding is tight. Slight and minor sunning to spine and front board. Lower corner of front cover a bit rubbed. Previous owner's old ink signature on front flyleaf. Some very light foxing and a bit of offsetting from plates. Still overall a very good and bright copy. Housed in a custom quarter red calf clamshell. Clamshell spine with blue and green labels, stamped and lettered in gilt. The green hand-colored endpapers represent Dickens's original choice for his lavish gift book. But the endpapers, which are a chalky, light yellowish green, proved a disappointment to him. On inspection they dusted off and smudged, and so the endpapers were changed before publication date to yellow, which did not require hand work. Probably in the middle of binding, as demand grew faster than the current endpaper stock, it was hurriedly decided to use the green paper, and thereafter it was used indiscriminately with yellow, but discarded again when the initial supply of green became exhausted. Therefore first impression, first issue copies occur in the earliest binding with either yellow or green endpapers, some collectors preferring the green endpapers as the original pre-publication choice.

      35 volumes. Verlag der Expedition der Illustrirten Zeitung, J.J. Weber, Leipzig 1843-1860. Folio. Richly illustrated with woodcuts. Bound in contemporary halfleather bindings of calf with richly gilt spines. Spines slightly dry and cracked, and a few volumes with minor wear on the top of the spines.. A long and unbroken run from the very beginning of the German Illustrirte Zeitung from Leipzig, inspired by the London Illustrated News. It was the first illustrated periodical printed in Germany, making use of the now perfected woodcut technique, which allowed highly detailed reproductions, that could be made very fast, and therefore bringing news to the public. Carl Behrendt Lorck, the publisher of H.C. Andersen's work in Germany, was one of the founders, and greatly helped Weber in publishing the monumental work - and indeed, Andersen was portraited in February 1847.Illustrirte Zeitung is an invaluable source for German and European history, wars and conflicts, the history of the railroad and chess!

A touch of wear to extremities of binding, two gatherings noticeably foxed. A very good copy. First edition. An important work by the American political economist George Tucker (1775-1861), a pioneer in the United States in advocating the use of statistics as a basis for scientific investigation in economics. This is his best known work and in it Tucker "while noticing the tendency of the rate of population growth to decrease, calculated that the population three generations from the time he wrote would be just twice what it actually turned out to be" (Dictionary of American Biography). He also forecasts the self-extinction of slavery. Interesting contemporary provenance: ownership inscription of H. S. Conger on front free endpaper and preliminary blank, presumably Harmon S.

        Autograph note signed in full ("Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy) relative to the composer's incidental music to Sophocles' Antigone

      . 1 page. Oblong octavo (173 x 81 mm.), cut from a larger sheet. Dated Leipzig, July 14, 1843. Written in brown ink in German cursive with proper names in Latin script. In German (with translation). Relative to the engraving of the score and parts of Antigone . "I request Director Ringelhardt to have the score and parts of my music to Antigone given to Mr. Kistner for engraving.". Written during Mendelssohn's residency in Berlin, during which time he retained close ties to Leipzig and continued conducting at the Gewandhaus. He composed the incidental music to Sophocles' Antigone in 1842-1843, and Ewer in London published the first edition of the piano-vocal score in 1843; Kistner's edition did not appear until 1951. "The composer began work in 1841 on music for the choruses of Antigone. His own classical studies held him in good stead: using the translation of J.J.C. Donner, scrupulously faithful to the original metre, Mendelssohn rendered the strophes and antistrophes of Sophocles' choruses with syllabic settings for double male choir accompanied by an orchestra, occasionally resorting to a recitative-like style of declamation. The parts of the principal characters were left as spoken dialogue, or set as melodrama, with the orchestra accompanying the spoken text... Though opinion varied about Mendelssohn's music (Schumann viewed the score as 'half opera, half tragedy'; The Times, 'too modern, and at the same time not modern enough'), Antigone was widely performed and used as a model for later classical revivals. In 1845 alone, it achieved 45 performances at Covent Garden; the same year, it was satirized in Lortzing's comic opera Der Wildschütz, another sign of its popularity." R. Larry Todd in Grove online Friedrich Sebald Ringelhardt (1785-1855) was the director of the municipal theatre in Leipzig from 1832 to 1845; Carl Friedrich Kistner (1797-1844) was Mendelssohn's publisher in Leipzig.

        Small manuscript archive relating to the Bathurst property of his son Thomas Sloman

      Exeter, 1843. A remarkable archive of mail received by the Sloman family, all in near pristine condition; 23 separately dated letters totalling some 100 pages of various sizes; see note for more details. Finance & love in early Bathurst. A fascinating archive of detailed and candid family letters sent to the prominent Bathurst settler Thomas Sloman in the decade after he arrived in Sydney.Thomas Sloman (1811-1902) was a banker and pastoralist who arrived in Sydney with letters of introduction to Samuel Marsden in 1833. After odd-jobbing around the colony, some time in 1836 he moved to Bathurst with the Bank, becoming a prominent figure in the region. After years in different trades, and a quick trip to England in 1849 to organise a peal of bells for All Saints, he returned to banking as an energetic 60 year-old, serving as the Bathurst manager of the Savings Bank of New South Wales, popularly known as "Sloman's Bank". A doyen of the city, on his ninetieth birthday he was presented with an illuminated address from his fellow citizens.Sloman had been born in Exeter, the son of Samuel George Sloman, and it is from his father that all of the more detailed letters in this collection were sent, although several of his siblings also contribute shorter notes and additions. Samuel was apparently the ideal correspondent: Thomas can have had no cause to make the common complaint of many of his peers that receiving news from England was like wringing blood from a stone. In letter after letter he and his family carefully answer Thomas' queries, update him on all manner of social and business news, and evidently revel in the news from Australia. Indeed, although only Samuel's half of the correspondence is present, it is possible to intuit much of what Thomas has written by a careful reading of the replies.Samuel George was a wine merchant of Exeter, with strong connections to the local Newnham family. His work as a merchant clearly saw him do a lot of business in Portugal, as any number of comments on the fragile political state of the Iberian Peninsula attest. He died in 1846 (see his will in the UK National Archives). One of his sons, also Samuel, was an Exeter physician and is much mentioned in the correspondence. Not all of the letters here are fully dated, but those that are were written from the family home "Mount Radford", on Radnor Place, Exeter. Most of the letters are added to over the course of several days, and many have more than one correspondent: which ever of Thomas' siblings are in Exeter will usually add substantially.The correspondence provides an intimate insight into the challenges facing a frontier pastoralist of the 1830s. Money matters are treated in some detail as Thomas borrowed heavily from his father, who is generous with advice accordingly. We learn of remittances, purchasing livestock, investments in New Zealand, mortgage bonds in Sydney Town, and the like. On a more personal level, Thomas' search for a wife is an ongoing preoccupation with the family. He is cautioned against opportunistic women in the colony and urged to return to England for a suitable partner (gender parity in Australia was not achieved until the Gold Rushes). Later letters in this archive reveal Thomas has become involved with a woman considered inappropriate by his father and aunt.Following the decease of Thomas Sloman, the letters passed to his daughters, and in due course were divided amongst his grand-daughters. The distribution of the Sloman letters is detailed in the foreword to Letters to Tom, a small self-published book edited by Joan Thomas (Avalon 1995). Some of the letters included in this archive are included in Letters to Tom; and it can be hoped that further manuscript material will someday emerge to shed further light on the history of Thomas Sloman and his family.A calendar of documents, with short summaries of each of the letters, is available upon request.
