        UTILITARIAN, / By Eclipse / [wood engraved illustration, 4 1/4 x 6 inches, of a bridled stallion being led a groom] / This horse has been bred with an eye to the useful qualities for the road / [followed by 27 lines of text describing the horse, setting out terms for him to stand at stud, and describing his pedigree] Signed in type at the end "John H Cocke, March, 1843 "

      Winnsville, Fluvanna County, (VA): John H. Cocke, 1843. Broadside, 17 1/2 x 12 inches, employing a large bold type for the one-word first line in the head and a smaller bold type for the second line; the wood engraving is not signed. The horse stood at Cocke's Fluvanna County, Virginia, plantation, Bremo, on the James River. Not in American Imprints. Not in Hummel or his "More Virginia Broadsides." OCLC locates two copies (Virginia State Library, Virginia). A little light foxing, but a lovely example of a scarce Virginia stud broadside. (#5355) John Hartwell Cocke (1780-1866), whose ancestors first appeared in Virginia shortly after the settling of Jamestown "inherited a fortune as well as refinement and native ability from his forebears, and after attending William & Mary College (1794-99), he chose the life of a country gentleman at 'Bremo' in Fluvanna County, to which he removed about 1803 … progressive and prescient in all things, he promoted new agricultural methods, the founding of agricultural societies, the development of waterways and steam navigation, and various public improvements. During the War of 1812, [as a newly minted brigadier general] … he commanded the Virginia soldiery guarding Richmond … slavery he denounced as a curse to commonwealth and nation … a friend to popular education, he sponsored sounder primary and secondary school systems … his contribution [to the development of the University of Virginia] was subordinate only to that of of Thomas Jefferson and Joseph C. Cabell … conscientious, tenacious of opinion, boldly independent, and devoid of partisanship, sectarian or regional … he was a zealous reformer … the causes which he supported indicate him to have been one of the most remarkable Virginians of his generation in power of foresight, a pioneer of modern social reform" (DAB). For amplification of Cocke's military service, see the "War of 1812" item in this list.

        VOYAGE DANS L'INTERIEUR DE L'AMERIQUE DU NORD, EXECUTE PENDANT LES ANNEES 1832, 1833 ET 1834

      Paris, 1843. Half title in each volume. Contemporary three-quarter green morocco and cloth, gilt. Minor wear to extremities. Scattered foxing, moderately heavy at times. Very good. First French edition of this most important work of Western Americana, describing the travels of German Prince Maximilian of Wied in the United States and on the upper Missouri River in 1832-34, accompanied by Swiss artist Karl Bodmer. Prince Maximilian was already an experienced naturalist and explorer in 1832, having made an important scientific expedition to Brazil in 1815-17. His preparations for his trip to North America included retaining Karl Bodmer to prepare illustrations of the journey. Arriving in the fall of 1832, the Prince travelled across Pennsylvania and the Midwest and ascended the Missouri River in the spring of 1833. He went as far upstream as the American Fur Company post of Fort Mackenzie in present-day Montana, and spent the winter at Fort Clark, near the Mandan Indian villages. During this prolonged stay, he and Bodmer had ample opportunity to observe the Indian tribes of the upper Missouri in their full glory, carefully recorded by Bodmer in watercolors. In the spring of 1834 they returned to Europe, and devoted the next five years to preparing the text and plates for this publication. Often eclipsed by the famous Bodmer atlas of the expedition, Maximilian's text remains one of the most important western travel narratives of the fur trade era, and a rare book in its own right.

        [AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT OF Tratado elemental teórico- practico de los Cónsules de España en paises etrangeros, presentado al Ministerio de Estado, por el Cónsul de S. M. en el Estado de Yucatan]

      [Campeche, 1843. Folio. Modern three-quarter red morocco and cloth, gilt. Boards bowed, light rubbing to corners and spine ends. Central horizontal crease throughout, otherwise clean. Near fine. An extensive unpublished manuscript manual of diplomacy written for the use of Spanish consuls and commercial agents stationed in foreign countries by Gerónimo Ferrer y Valls (1797-1851), then the Spanish consul and commercial agent in Campeche, Yucatan, and addressed to Antonio González y González (1792-1876), then in his second term as Spain's Prime Minister. Ferrer y Valls explains that he wrote this treatise for the benefit of his consular colleagues and trade agents, having himself profited from Agustín de Letamendi's ATRIBUCIONES CONSULARES (1835). Arranged in thirty-six chapters, the text includes examples drawn from the author's own experience in Campeche. Following a discussion of commerce in general and the history of Spanish consulates, Ferrer y Valls examines the skills required by a consul and vice consul, arguing that such a figure should also undertake the role of the commercial agent. Consular documents are examined: the bill of health for the port for which the consul was responsible, the authentication of documents, the notification of petitions, and the books to be kept. These include a letter book of ministerial correspondence and another of correspondence with authorities within the country; a register of passports issued by the consul; a log of the entry and exit of ships; a book of certificates stating the origin of goods; a register of Spanish citizens resident in the country; and a book of sea protests, proxies, deeds, wills, and other public acts. Discussion of the jurisdiction of Spanish consuls is followed by a description of consular services and fees, with a table of tariffs. A particularly interesting example of a consular report given here is a table for the first quarter of 1842 recording imports and exports shipped into and out of the port of Campeche by Spanish merchant vessels. The treatise ends with a short chapter on inventories, listing, as an example, the papers, books, and effects in the consulate at Campeche. At the time of writing this treatise Ferrer y Valls was already an established author, having published, among other works, the similarly titled TRATADO ELEMENTAL TE?"RICO-PRÁCTICO DE RELACIONES COMERCIALES... in 1833, and edited a periodical entitled TECNOL?"GICO NACIONAL DE AGRICULTURA, ARTES INDUSTRIALES, CIENCIAS, COMERCIO Y LITERATURA in 1834. That Ferrer y Valls also intended to publish this manuscript is clear: not only is it a fair copy, with only a few corrections and cross-outs, but it contains a copy of a letter from the author, and Prime Minister Antonio González y Gonzálezs reply, regarding its printing. The author estimates the cost of printing and paper for 500 copies at no more than 150 pesos and states that if the government cannot meet the expense, he would, with González's approval, arrange the printing himself. In an interesting aside, Ferrer y Valls requests transfer to the new consulate in Montevideo, as the climate in Campeche is not congenial to his health. González's reply must have come as a disappointment on both accounts: it would not be appropriate for his ministry to publish the TRATADO, as it might give the work an authority which only government-issued instructions could have on such matters; as for the transfer, no definite decision had yet been made on the establishment of a consulate in Montevideo. That Ferrer y Valls continued to write, however, is clear from the publication of his CARTAS HIST?"RICAS, FILOS?"FICAS, ESTADÍSTICAS, AGRÍCOLAS, INDUSTRIALES Y MERCANTILES in 1846. The text of the TRATADO is followed by a copy of a letter from Ferrer y Valls, dated Dec. 26, 1842, to the Secretary of the Office of the Ministry of State in Madrid, enclosing an appendix, and the Secretary's reply of March 10, 1843. The appendix includes a "Copy of the case relative to the dispatch of passports to Spanish subjects by the commercial agent of Spain in Yucatan promoted by the government of the said state on 2 November 1841 and ended in favour of the representative of her majesty on 14 October 1842;" "A verbal claim made by the commercial agent of Spain in Yucatan on 18 October 1842 to the commander of the first division of operations for excluding the Spanish subject Juan Gual from the armed services;" and "A preventive communication directed by the commercial agent of Spain in Yucatan to the general in chief of the Mexican expeditionary troops and naval forces of the same state" of November 1842. A marvelous inside view of Spanish diplomatic relations, written in Mexico in the mid-19th century.

        Karl Julius GRÄTZ (1843 Frankfurt am Main 1912), Zug der Künstler nach Frankfurt

      - Karl Julius GRÄTZ (1843 Frankfurt am Main 1912), Zug der Künstler nach Frankfurt -- Technik: -- Aquarell und Tusche auf Papier, unten links signiert und datiert: "J Grätz im December 1862. ". -- Maße: -- 22,2 x 53,7 cm -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand, die Ränder teils alt beschnitten, aber kurz außerhalb oder auf der originalen Umrahmung in Feder. -- Beschreibung: -- Ein Umzug bunter Gestalten folgt dem Schild nach Frankfurt. An der Spitze schreitet stolz ein junger Herr mit einemFederhut. Sein Gesicht verrät zwar Skepsis, dennoch folgt er entschlossen der Richtung. Hinter ihm sorgen zweiMusikanten mit Gitarre und Querflöte für gute Stimmung, von der sich aber nicht alle Zugteilnehmer mitreißen lassen. Das Paar direkt hinter ihnen tut dies indes gerne " es zieht tanzend und hüpfend hinterher. Es folgen noch ein weiteresPaar in fröhlicher Stimmung und ein nachdenklicher Herr mit Sonnenschirm und kariertem Barett. Zwei Arm in Armschreitende Herren schließen den Zug, einer davon raucht eine Zigarre. Ihre selbstgefällige Art weiß Grätz gekonnt inSzene zu setzen. Die Schuhe des hinteren Rauchers charakterisiert er treffend als "Maabootscher", womit in derhessischen Mundart übergroße Schuhe gemeint sind. Bekannt wurde Karl Julius Grätz dank seiner Kirchenausmalungen u. a. im Frankfurter Dom, in der Stadtkirche inKronberg und in der Stadtkirche in Bamberg. Es waren jedoch nicht ausschließlich die sakralen Gebäude, die er mitseiner Malerei verzierte. Bald wurde er auch unter Restaurant-, Wein-, und Bierstubenbesitzern wegen seines Talentsfür satirische Darstellungen bekannt. Zu seinen Aufträgen in Frankfurt gehörten wohl auch eine Bierstube zur Stadt Ulmund ein Restaurant Kaisergarten. In Neckargemünd malte er Wanddekorationen in der Griechischen Weinstube desWeingroßhändlers Julius Menzer. Sowohl das Format der Zeichnung als auch ihre karikaturhafte Form der Darstellung lassen vermuten, dass es sich hierum eine Skizze zum Wandgemälde eines solchen Lokals handelt. Es ist ein bunt gemischter Zug aller Nationen undgesellschaftlichen Gruppen. Der Musikant mit dem schiefen Zylinder sucht im Vorbeiziehen Blickkontakt mit demBetrachter. Es ist eine Einladung, sich dem fröhlichen Eroberungszug nach Frankfurt anzuschließen. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        THE ORCHARDIST'S COMPANION A QUARTERLY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO THE HISTORY, CHARACTER, PROPERTIES, MODES OF CULTIVATION, AND ALL OTHER MATTERS APPERTAINING TO THE FRUITS OF THE UNITED STATES, EMBELLISHED WITH RICHLY COLORED DESIGNS OF THE NATURAL SIZE, PAINTED FROM THE ACTUAL FRUITS WHEN IN THEIR FINEST CONDITION

      Philadelphia, 1843. Quarto. Contemporary black hard-grain morocco, covers with outer gilt triple fillet border, spine in five compartments with semi-raised bands, the bands highlighted with tooling in gilt and flanked by double fillets in blind, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Very good. Provenance: John H. Edmonds (Leicester, Mass., inscription, dated 1901). "The first American journal completely devoted to fruit" (OAK SPRING POMONA) and one of the rarest American works illustrated with handcolored lithographs: this copy from the de luxe colored issue and including the very rare second volume. Only one complete set of this short-lived high quality periodical is recorded as having sold at auction in the past twenty-five years. It was launched under the patronage of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society as a quarterly journal dedicated to fruit and fruit growing in the United States. Hoffy intended that each annual volume should be made up of two sections. The first to include text with wood-engraved illustrations covering all aspects of fruit growing: reporting on the latest varieties, discussions of their relative merits, papers on pests and diseases of fruit, etc. The second section was to include accurate and beautiful lithographic plates of individual varieties, handcolored or uncolored, each plate to be faced by one or more pages of descriptive text including useful (and historically important) lists of the various names by which the varieties are known. The work was sold at seven $7 per annum if paid in advance, or $2 per part for the four parts, for the "Best or Colored Edition"; or $4 in advance or $1.25 per issue for the uncolored version. The present volume contains all that was published (five quarterly parts) of a work that seems to have foundered because it was too expensive for the market at which it was aimed. It includes plates of thirteen (of fourteen) varieties of apple, two apricot, four cherry, three grape, fifteen pear, twelve peach, seven plum, and two (of three) strawberry. "Alfred Hoffy worked for several printers of lithographs in Philadelphia. Among other subjects, he drew several portraits, including one of the original Siamese twins, Eng and Chang, in 1837, but his enthusiasm for recording fruit trees seems to have taken up a good deal of his time. His ORCHARDIST'S COMPANION was the first American journal completely devoted to fruit and its cultivation" - Sandra Raphael, AN OAK SPRING POMONA, p.155. After the failure of the present work, Hoffy went on to make two other attempts at publishing similar works. In 1851 he published THE AMERICAN POMOLOGIST (with ten plates), and in 1860 he tried again with THE NORTH AMERICAN POMOLOGIST which included thirty-six plates, including the ten issued in 1851. Copies of the present work vary in collation. It was issued in parts, but Hoffy recommended that subscribers eventually bind the parts into two separate volumes for each year: one of preliminary text, and a second containing the plates and their "descriptive pages" - this explains the subtitles to the first two titles ("Vol. I April. 1841" and "Vol. 2 April. 1841"). The third title is subtitled "Volume 2" and is dated "1842- 3." Wainwright notes that Hoffy issued parts of THE ORCHARDIST'S COMPANION on a quarterly schedule beginning in 1841, with each part containing twelve illustrations of fruit. The final installment of the work, which raised the total to sixty plates, is particularly rare. In the present copy all the text and the plates are in a single volume. Despite Hoffy's attempts at similar efforts, enthusiasm for his pomological productions waned. "Patronized by an impressive list of subscribers headed by the President of the United States, endorsed by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, and the recipient of a silver medal awarded by the American Institute of New York, THE ORCHARDIST'S COMPANION nevertheless withered on the vine for lack of adequate support" - Wainwright. Cost was certainly a factor; though great plans were laid, no further additions to THE ORCHARDIST'S COMPANION were forthcoming. Still, Hoffy was successful in creating an American fruit book of considerable beauty that became an early benchmark for the genre.

        JUDAH’S LION

      New York; John S. Taylor 1843 - Publishers cloth. 12mo. 358 pages. 19 cm. First US edition. Singerman 0833. This novel is considered to be the first English language ‘Zionist Novel’ (it predates George Eliot’s ‘Daniel Deronda’ by thirty years); the story concerns the return of an English Jew (Alick) to the Holy Land; it binds together English and Jewish history.This was the last novel the author wrote. Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna (1790-1846) wrote on the plight of English factory workers, was well known in her time for her novels and her Orange-Protestant essays and poems, was passionate about gardening, a pioneer of deaf education, and also wrote children’s stories. In her later years she defended the rights of Judaism, and in her last three years was a close friend of Moses Montefiore, owing to her fundraising on behalf of the Jews of Mogador in 1844 (she raised the most money of anyone for the Jewish community in the besieged Moroccan coastal city), her public protest against the policies of Tsar Nicholas I towards Jews, and her 1844 letter to the Bishop of Jerusalem, entitled ‘Israel’s Ordinances.’ "As Tonna’s health deteriorated rapidly, the Montefiores became devoted friends. When she set out on her final journey to Ramsgate from London, it was Montefiore who bade her farewell at the train station and handed her a basket of grapes." (Pg. 215; ‘Moses Montefiore: Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero’; by Abigail Green). Her work, "Days of Old,’ by Charlotte Elizabeth (Mrs. Tonner)" was part of the sixth volume published by the American Jewish Publication Society in 1847 (Jewish Miscellany no. VI; which also includes two works by Isaac Leeser, "Rachel Levi, A Tale" and "The Jews and Their Religion"), two years after the society was founded by Isaac Leeser (EJ 1906; American Jewish Publication Society).

        Wilhelm REUTER (1768 Hildesheim-Berlin 1834). Frau mit Tuch, 1818

      - Wilhelm Hecht (1843 Ansbach - Linz/Donau 1920). Sankt Wolfgang und der Teufel beim Kirchenbau, nach Moritz von Schwind. Radierung auf aufgewalztem Chinapapier. -- Technik: -- Radierung auf aufgewalztem Chinapapier. unten links in der Platte bezeichnet: "M. v. Schwind", unten rechts in der Platte signiert: "W. Hecht sct. ", unten bezeichnet: "Sanct Wolfgang und der Teufel beim Kirchenbau. ". -- Maße: -- Platte: 22 x 13,1 cm. Platte: 27,6 x 17,2 cm Papier: 35,4 x 28,6 cm -- Zustand: -- Beschreibung: -- Wenige Künstler des 19. Jahrhunderts haben sich so hingebungsvoll dem bizarren Fabulieren hingegeben wie Moritz von Schwind. Seine von Märchenwesen bevölkerten Bildwelten ergehen sich in einer grotesk gesteigerten Ausschmückung, die weder vor dem Personal noch vor der Umgebung halt macht. Sein Rübezahl ist hierfür ein treffendes Beispiel: Der schrullige Einsiedler mit seinem Lanzen-Bart und der riesigen Herku-les-Keule durchstreift in seinen Holzpantinen einen verwunschenen Wald, in dem jeder Baum ebenso viel Charakter hat wie Rübezahl selbst. Je knorriger und verschlungener, desto besser. Dieses Aufgehen in dem Durcheinander der Linien, die sich zu immer komplexeren Gebilden verdichten, findet man auch in den beiden anderen hier gezeigten Blättern und es ist das große Verdienst von Wilhelm Hecht gerade diese Art mit jeder einzelnen Linie zu erzählen, nachvollzogen zu haben. Im Blatt Wieland der Schmied findet sie sich in den Felsen wieder und bei Sankt Wolfgangs Kirchenbau sind es das üppige Blatt-werk und die einzelnen Äste, die in ihrer Dynamik zu eigenständigem Personal werden. Gerade solch ein Blatt zeigt aber auch Schwinds hohe Begabung für die pointierte Darstellung. Der sich abmühende und hechelnd dem Betrachter die Zunge rausstreckende Teufel wird kongenial mit dem Heiligen kontrastiert, der in sich ruhend die Maurerkelle bereit hält und dabei fast schon selbst zum Bauschmuck geworden ist. Gleiches gilt für den Rübezahl, der in seiner schrulligen Wanderschaft so viel in sich ruhende Unbekümmertheit offenbart, die Schwind durch kleine Details wie die runter gerutschten Socken oder die Knochen in der Hosentasche verdeutlicht. Alle drei Gemälde Schwinds, nach denen Wilhelm Hecht die vorliegenden Graphiken schuf, erwarb Adolf Friedrich Graf von Schack für seine Sammlung. Rübezahl und St. Wolfgang gehörten zu einem 25 Bilder umfassenden Konvolut, das er 1869 direkt vom Künstler kaufen konnte. Schwind nannte sie Reisebilder und schuf sie ohne Auftraggeber aus privatem Anlass. Dies mag auch das unkonventionelle Erscheinungsbild dieser Bilder erklären. Hier konnte er sich ganz seiner Lust am Phantastischen überlassen und in skurrilen Formen und Bildwelten schwelgen. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Contemporary red pebble-grained morocco, spines in compartments with gilt titles direct, boards elaborately panelled in blind with a cathedral-style motif enclosing a detailed gilt vignette of St Paul's Cathedral on the front boards and a cross on the rear boards, all edges gilt, inner gilt dentelles, yellow endpapers. Steel-engraved frontispiece and 12 other plates, including three maps coloured in outline. Partial tanning to endpapers, occasional light foxing to contents. An excellent set. A very handsomely bound early Victorian Bible. Church of England clergyman and biblical scholar Thomas Scott (1747?-1821) first published his commentary of the Bible in 1788?-92. "Scott saw the Bible as inspired by the Holy Spirit, but he also claimed a divine-human encounter in which each writer contributed of his own individuality to what was written. He also stressed the need to read each part in that sense in which it is proposed as truth, recognizing the presence of differing genres in the various books. He sought to reinforce interpretation by confirmatory cross-reference and insisted on the primacy of doctrine and precept over fact" (ODNB).

Read by Dr. Chalmers, at Glasgow, on the 23d October 1843>. 8vo., 8pp. Following a bruising battle between the Church of Scotland and the government over the appointment of clergy to parochial posts and the right of local congregations to have a veto, Thomas Chalmers, in May 1843, led some 470 ministers - over a third of the total - and perhaps half the lay membership out of the Scottish establishment to form the Free Church of Scotland. 'It was an impressive demonstration of sacrifice for a principle, and the size of the secession owed much to Chalmers's influence. He became the first moderator of the Free Church general assembly and his reputation helped to bring international support to the Free Church. The Disruption was in one sense a tragedy, breaking up the unity of the national Church of Scotland. But in another sense it was a glorious moment in the religious history of Scotland, a dramatic assertion of the rights of congregations to have a voice in the selection of their ministers and, more significantly, an assertion of the spiritual independence of the church under the sole headship of Christ.' [Stewart J. Brown in ODNB]. The present group of papers provides a comprehensive and detailed account of the first six months of the Free Church.

        Memorials of Affghanistan;

      Calcutta: Messrs. Ostell and Lepage [printed at the Bishop's College Press],, 1843. being State Papers, Official Documents, Dispatches, Authentic Narratives, etc. Illustrative of the British Expedition to, and Occupation of, Afghanistan and Scinde, between the Years 1838 and 1842. Octavo (213 × 142 mm). Contemporary native binding, burgundy half skiver, green diapered cloth, title gilt to spine which is divided into 6 compartments by paired thick and thin gilt rules, green endpapers. Lithographed frontispiece and 4 folding lithographic plans. Half-title bound in. Just a little rubbed at the extremities, light browning and a scatter of pale foxing, a very good copy indeed in bright, unrestored contemporary condition. First and only edition, of this exceedingly uncommon work on the First Afghan War, around 24 copies on OCLC, but just 2 appearances at auction in the last 20 years. Essentially "an attempt to connect the Proclamations, Official Dispatches, Orders and Notifications, written and published during the eventful period which these campaigns embrace", in order to "facilitate the references, and render light the investigations of the Soldier, the Politician, and the Student" (preface). Includes a first-hand account of the murder of 'Bokhara' Burnes written by his servant, Bowh Singh. The author is an intriguing figure, Stocqueler first travelled out to Bombay in 1819 to join the army, but in 1824 bought himself out and entered Indian literary circles, over the next twenty years or so being involved in journalism, the Indian public library movement, and theatrical promotions, interspersed with fairly frequent periods of insolvency. While based in Calcutta during the 1830s he was proprietor of the newspaper The Englishman, editor of both the Bengal Sporting Magazine, and the East India United Services Journal, was involved in the establishment of the Calcutta Public Library and also in the promotion of the highly popular Sans Souci theatre. However, late 1841 found him in the Debtor's Prison, and soon after he sold up The Englishman and in 1843 returned to England, where he enthusiastically threw himself into London literary life. He was a prolific writer, producing reference books based on his travels and military exploits, serial novels, biographies of Wellington and Sir William Nott, popular theatrical spectacles for Astley's Amphitheatre, and commentaries for the dioramas at German Reed's Royal Gallery of Illustration. Despite his apparent success, Stocqueler again faced bankruptcy and fled the country for America, where he lived on and off until his death in 1886 under the assumed name of Siddons, claiming to be the illegitimate grandson of the great actress Sarah Siddons. The text is prefaced by an eight-page subscriber's list containing the names of such notables as Vincent Eyre, the famous Kabul prisoner; Henry Havelock, William Mayne, who served in the campaign with the Army of the Indus, and with Sale's Brigade at Jalalabad, later commander of the Hyderabad Contingent of the Nizam's forces; James Skinner of Skinner's Horse fame; Meadows Taylor, author of Confessions of a Thug; and Henry Yule, the linguist, geographer and author of the wonderful Hobson-Jobson. Also listed are some twenty-one book clubs established by native infantry regiments. This copy with the ownership inscription of William Anley, who is recorded in the The Bengal and Agra Annual Guide and Gazetteer for 1842 as an attorney and public notary practising from an address in Esplanade Row, Calcutta, the location of the Town Hall, Government House, and the High Court, and described by Eliza Fay who recorded her impressions of the city in 1817, as seeming to be "composed entirely of palaces … occupied by the principal gentlemen in the settlement" (Original Letters from India, p. 239). Anley would have been a neighbour of Stocqueler's as The Englishman had offices on Esplanade Row.

        Le Hachych

      Paulin, Paris 1843 - Octavo, ms. inscription on title; a couple of dampstains in margins at start, otherwise a fine copy in the original printed yellow wrappers, worn at spine. Presentation copy of the very rare first edition of this utopian hymn to hashish.In the early 1840s the French psychiatrist Moreau had begun studying the possible therapeutic applications of hashish, in the process installing himself as purveyor to the famous Club des Hachichins, an elegant coterie presided over by author and dilettante Gautier. But it fell to the well-known surgeon and republican socialist Lallemand to write the first European work to use the drug as its basic plot device.The work purports to be a translation from an Arabic manuscript which the author has discovered in his cabin whilst sailing for Marseille. It veers between the sensational and the doctrinal, particularly in its fundamental conceit that hashish not only provides consolation for the present, but an intimation and aspect of the future.This copy is inscribed by Lallemand to "Monsieur Breton", in distinctive sepia ink, with a flourish that zig-zags across the word Hachych: this must be a deliberate echo of the closing lines of the novel: 'Il n'existe, d'ailleurs, d'autre trace de signature qu'un énorme zigzag allant jusqu'au bas de la page, et annoncant, selon toute apparence, un violent désir de s'étendre sur le matelas dont il a été parlé?'.The book had some success and was republished in 1848 almost identically, but with the extra title Révolutions Politiques et Sociales.

        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 tragedyÂ’; The Times, ‘too modern, and at the same time not modern enoughÂ’), 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.

        A Journal Of The Disasters In Affghanistan, 1841-2

      London: John Murray,, 1843. Together with a three-page letter from Lady Sale, and a contemporary copy of Dr. Brydon's famous account of his experiences on the retreat from Kabul. Octavo (187 × 114 mm). Contemporary cerise full diced calf, green morocco label, low, flat bands, compartments with gilt triple fillet panel enclosing lozenge centre-tool with spiral arabesque corner-pieces, triple fillet panels gilt to the boards, sun in splendour gilt edge-roll, marbled edges and endpapers. Bookseller's label of E. Blackwell of London Street, Reading to the front pastedown. Folding frontispiece plan of Kabul, and one other map. Very light shelfwear, some foxing front and back, light toning otherwise, an excellent copy. First edition. Lady Sale's diary account of the siege, fall, and retreat from Kabul was a great popular success, the author becoming "the heroine of the hour, renowned for her courage" (ODNB), she "graphically describes General Elphinstone's weak and vacillating leadership in the face of the insurgent Afghan chiefs and his army's subsequent retreat … Sale's entries make clear the sense of confusion, poor discipline, non-existent organisation, and lack of planning which contributed to the terrible bloodshed of the retreat" (Riddick). This copy is in a very pretty contemporary binding, and is greatly enhanced by the inclusion of a three-page letter from Lady Sale, together with a contemporary copy of Dr. William Brydon's account of his experiences as the whole survivor of the retreat. The letter, dated 18 August 1844, on a single bifolium of small octavo mourning stationery is addressed to Mrs. Spink, wife of Colonel Spink, Assistant Quartermaster-General at Cork and a colleague who had seen service with Sale in the 12th Foot - the original envelope addressed in Sales's hand mounted beneath the signature - gives a sense of the reception that the Sales received in England; "I feel it quite delightful being able to sit down quietly in the country for the racketing of a London life is dreadfully fatiguing to an old woman. I feel greatly flattered by & very grateful for all the kindness and attention shown to us. Sale dined with the Court of Directors on Wednesday & the ladies went to the gallery to hear the speeches, it was most exciting. Sale was so affected by it that when he rose to speak, utterance was almost denied him. I was completely taken aback at my health being drunk & the universal cheering that accompanied it … This evening we were asked to the Russian Ambassadors but sent an excuse as being in the country. Tomorrow we dine at the Duke of Wellington's to meet the Prince of Prussia. On Monday Sale dines with the Junior United Service Club. So you see being in the country is nothing very quiet. I fear you will think us very ungrateful for all the attention shewn us here when I say how happy I am in the prospect of returning to India in December, but which constitutes Home". The book is also accompanied by a six-page contemporary transcription of Dr. William Brydon's famous letter to his brother recounting his experiences as the sole survivor of the retreat from Kabul; "Here I am at this place, all safe but not all sound, having received three wounds in the head, left hand & knee. I have lost everything I had in the world; but my life has been saved in a most wonderful manner, and I am the only European who has escaped from the Cabool Army of 13000". The transcription is on three sheets of paper watermarked Renshaw & Kirkman, 1840, and with the blind stamp of the Devizes stationers Henry Bull, folded to form three bifolia. The book bears the attractive armorial bookplate of James Bonnell on the front pastedown, and has a gift inscription from his "relative" Mary Anne Harvey Bonnell, who later conveyed the Bonnell estates at Purleigh to him by deed of gift. A highly desirable copy of this important narrative, letters from Lady Sale are rarely encountered on the market.

        [MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT SIGNED BY JOHN P. SARPY, TESTIFYING TO THE DISPERSAL OF THE ESTATE OF HENRY FRAEB AND THE DIFFICULTY OF COLLECTING MONEY FROM FAMED MOUNTAIN MAN JIM BRIDGER]

      St. Louis. June 20, 1843.. [1]p., docketed on verso. Folio. Old fold lines; some separation at folds, a few repaired with older archival tape. Quite clean and bright. Good. A remarkable window into the business dealings of famed mountain man Jim Bridger, this signed manuscript affidavit of John P. Sarpy testifies to his actions on behalf of the estate of fellow fur trader Henry Fraeb, who was killed by Indians in the Rocky Mountains. Sarpy, who was a partner in the major firm of Pierre Chouteau & Co., had worked closely with Fraeb and knew him well. In his affidavit he writes about the Chouteau Company's concerns about Jim Bridger, Fraeb's partner at the time of his demise, and the difficulty of getting Bridger to pay his debts. Dated at St. Louis, Sarpy's affidavit states: "...on the 8th day of August last he was appointed...administrator of the estate of Henry Fraeb then lately deceased. Said Fraeb had been a trader in the mountains, & was at the time of his death in partnership with a man of the name of James Bridger, & said Bridger & Fraeb were indebted to the firm of Pierre Chouteau Jr. & Co., & it was feared by the members of said firm that unless some one became the administrator of the said Fraeb, the said Bridger might interpose difficulties in the settlement of the accounts existing between them & Bridger & Fraeb. & for the purpose of doing justice to themselves, as well as to the said Fraeb, the said Sarpy applied for letters of administration, which were granted to him as above mentioned. The said Bridger has however since this time been here & has settled in full the accounts existing between the firm of Pierre Chouteau Jr. & Co. & the said Bridger & Fraeb. And the said Sarpy says that no property has come into his hands as the administrator of the said Fraeb, although it may be that the said Fraeb has property in the [mountain?] country or in the hands of James Bridger his former partner." Though he may have been one of the greatest and most beloved mountain men of all time, Jim Bridger was not the best debt in the world, nor did Pierre Chouteau & Co. forget business.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Henri Heine").

      [Paris], "Mardi, 18 avril" [1843?].. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. Unveröffentlichter Brief an die kreolischstämmige Pariser Salonniere Maria Comtesse de Merlin: "Madame! J'accepte avec plaisir votre invitation et je vous eu remercie bien sincerement. C'est d'une bonte charmante et merveilleuse que de se rappler de temps en temps de ce pauvre ours allemand qui fuit le monde et qu'on oublierais de bon droit. Je ne crois pas exagerer quand je dis que vous etes aussi bonne que belle! Recevez, Madame la comtesse, l'assurance de mon devouement, et daignez en agreer l'expression respectueux". - Der 18. April fiel 1837, 1843, 1848 und 1854 auf einen Dienstag; der Selbstvergleich mit dem "deutschen Bären" rückt den Brief in die zeitliche Nähe von Heines Tierepos "Atta Troll", das 1841 entstand und 1843 in der "Zeitung für die elegante Welt" erschien. Die einzige weitere überlieferte Korrespondenz zwischen Heine und der Comtesse de Merlin datiert von Anfang 1844. - Minimal braunfleckig und mit winzigem Ausriß durch Öffnen der Verschlußmarke. Die Gräfin Maria de las Mercedes de Merlin de Jaruco (1789-1852), in Kuba geboren als Mercedes Santa Cruz y Montalvo, heiratete durch Vermittlung Joseph Bonapartes den französischen General Christophe-Antoine Comte Merlin. 1836 erschienen ihre "Souvenirs et memoires".
