        Travels in New Zealand; with contributions to the geography, geology, botany and natural history of that country

      London: John Murray, 1843. Two volumes, octavo, five plates (including frontispieces); the slightest sunning to spines; plates moderately toned; other than this a really attractive fresh and tight set, with the 4 pp. Murray advertisements, in original green cloth. A handsome copy of this important account of New Zealand during the 1830s by German naturalist Johann Ernst Dieffenbach (1811-1855), employed in a scientific capacity by the New Zealand Company from 1839-1841.Exiled from Germany following political strife, Dieffenbach moved to London where enjoyed the acquaintance of leading naturalists including Richard Owen, Charles Darwin and Charles Lyell. He sailed for New Zealand in 1839, taking the position of naturalist for the New Zealand Company, and travelled widely throughout the two years of his appointment. Published in 1843 upon his return to London, Travels in New Zealand is an extraordinary account of Maori society during a time of unprecedented change. A sensitive and liberal observer, Dieffenbach was critical of the Wakefield land purchase scheme and attendant speculation, and bemoaned the alienation of the Maori from their traditional lands. The last section of the second volume is devoted to the Maori language (pp. 297-396), including linguistic notes, grammar and a dictionary.

        Der Heilige Stanislaus die Madonna anbetend.

      - Bleistift, auf cremefarbenem Pauspapier, rechts unten signiert „Flatz", unter der Darstellung bezeichnet „Dem heiligen Stanislaus Entwurf zu einem Altarbild für den Grafen Darius Poniatowski in Pohlen (sic!)". 21,4:14,3 cm. Literatur: Thieme/Becker, Bd. XII, S. 77. In dem eigenhändigen Werkverzeichnis wird das nach diesem Entwurf ausgeführte Altarbild mit dem Jahr „1843" genannt. Flatz bildete sich ab 1820 an der Wiener Akademie der bildenden Künste bei Franz Caucig (1755-1828) und Anton Petter (1781-1858) aus. 1827 kehrte er nach Vorarlberg zurück. 1829-1833 hielt er sich gemeinsam mit seinem Malerfreund Libertat Hundertpfund (1806-1878) in Innsbruck auf, wo er mit Bildnisaufträgen beschäftigt war. Noch 1833 reiste er nach Rom, wo er fünf Jahre blieb. Diese Jahre waren für ihn künstlerisch entscheidend, denn durch den Verkehr mit Friedrich Overbeck (1789-1869) wurde er ganz für die Kunst der Nazarener gewonnen. 1838 kehrte er nach Wien zurück und ehelichte dort Maria Felicitas von Foullon-Norbeck und übersiedelte mit ihr nach Innsbruck. 1840 reiste er aus gesundheitlichen Gründen nach Frascati in den Albaner Bergen. In den folgenden Jahren gewann Flatz in den Künstler- und katholischen Kreisen bedeutendes Ansehen, das jenem Overbecks fast gleichkam, schuf zahlreiche Werke, erhielt bei der Ausstellung für kirchliche Kunst 1870 einen Preis. Nach der Besetzung Roms kehrte er 1871 nach Bregenz zurück, wo er bis zu seinem Tode ansässig blieb. Flatz war seit Angelika Kauffmann (1741-1807) das bedeutendste Malertalent in Vorarlberg. Neben den Esterházy werden die Erdödy zu den bedeutendsten Kunstförderern in Ungarn gezählt.

        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.

      1843. Galería Dramática. 1843 - Imprenta de Yenes. Madrid. . 4 Vol. . Vol.I: VIII+371pp. Vol.II: 384 pp. Vol.III: 354 pp. Vol.IV: 501 pp. Cuarto Menor. Media Piel de época. Literatura Hispánica (Romanticismo / siglo XIX), Siglo XIX . Primera edición de esta recopilación de las Obras de Larra. Este autor clásico español comenzó una brillante carrera periodística, primero en dos periódicos de su propiedad, El duende satírico del día (1828) y El pobrecito hablador (1832-1833), y posteriormente, colaboró como crítico de teatro con el diario nacional La revista española, donde firmaba sus crónicas bajo el seudónimo de Fígaro. Se convirtió en uno de los periodistas más famosos y mejor pagados del país y colaboró en diversas publicaciones además de escribir la novela El doncel de Don Enrique el Doliente (1834), y la obra de teatro Macías (1834). También tradujo diversas obras de teatro francesas. Larra es conocido ante todo por sus Artículos de costumbres o escenas de la vida española. Estos artículos, típicamente característicos de la época, estaban imbuidos de nostalgia. Larra, por el contrario, utilizó el género para producir una serie de retratos de la sociedad tremendamente satíricos, en los que despliega su talento periodístico para describir la complacencia, la hipocresía, la vacuidad y la corrupción de la sociedad española. Tapas algo rozadas, texto en buen estado.

        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.

        CONVENTION BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE MEXICAN REPUBLIC, CONCLUDED JANUARY 30, 1843

A few pencil margin notes. Withal, still very good. The official, folio, printing of this treaty. Such printings were done in small numbers. This treaty called for arbitration in the outstanding Mexican and U.S. claims. According to Bancroft, "The treaty of arbitration was a thorn in the flesh of many who had cast an evil eye on Mexico, as it did away with all pretexts for complaint against the latter Republic, and postponed indefinitely the acquisition of Texas." Not for long, as it turned out. This was the sixth, and last, Mexican treaty with the U.S. before war came after the annexation of Texas.

Fournier et Cie, Paris, 1843, 10 pp. et 1 f. ) ; 1 f. blanc, 1 f. manuscrit de titre : Extrait relatif au Mémorial de Sainte Hélène (édition 1823) contenant une erreur qui a été rectifiée par Monsieur le Comte de Las Cases dans les éditions de 1840 et 1841, suivi d'une copie manuscrite de la lettre de Ballouhey exposant les faits, adressée à la famille de Beauharnais et l'invitant à donner de la publicité à cette rectification, et copie de la réponse du Général Marquis de Beauharnais, soit 3 ff. et 1 f. blanc ; 1 f. manuscrit de titre : Lettre à Monsieur le Général Comte Louis Tascher de Lapagerie, par Mr Ballouhey, en date du 25 Février 1841, et réponse de Monsieur le Comte Louis Tascher de Lapagerie, à Mr. Ballouhey, suivi des copies manuscrites de la lettre de Ballouhey et de la réponse, soit 3 ff. et 2 ff. blancs ; 1 f. manuscrit de titre : Lettre à Monsieur le Lieutenant Général Marquis de Beauharnais, par Mr. Ballouhey, en date du 25 Août 1841, et réponse de Monsieur le Marquis de Beauharnais à Mr. Ballouhey, suivi des copies manuscrites de la lettre de Ballouhey et de la réponse, soit 3 ff. et 2 ff. blancs ; 1 f. manuscrit de titre : Lettre à Monsieur le Lieutenant Général Marquis de Beauharnais Etonnant manuscrit certifié conforme par Mr. Ballouhey, ancien secrétaire des Dépenses de l'Impératrice Joséphine. Dans sa première édition, le Mémorial de Sainte-Hélène indiquait : "Napoléon énumérait tout ce que pouvait avoir reçu l'Impératrice Joséphine, concluant qu'avec un peu d'ordre et de régularité seulement, elle aurait bien dû laisser peut-être 50 à 60 millions". Cette assertion ayant paru prodigieusement exagérée aux héritiers de l'Impératrice, le Comte de Lavalette se tourna vers M. Ballouhey, ancien secrétaire des dépenses de l'Impératrice. Ce dernier prit cette défense fort à coeur, et il nous a laissé cet étonnant témoignage, rédigé de sa main, et recueillant 4 pièces (dont 3 manuscrites) exposant la réalité de la situation financière de Joséphine, ainsi que ses efforts pour la réhabilitation de l'Impératrice. Joli exemplaire en très bon état (petits accrocs en coiffe, très bel état par ailleurs) de ce petit recueil vraisemblablement produits à quelques rares exemplaires.

Illustrated with Numerous Cases of its Successful Application in the Relief and Cure of Disease. Small octavo. Original green vertical-grain cloth, embossed, neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, yellow coated endpapers. With terminal advert leaf.

Tips just worn, a sprinkle of spotting to half-title and title, endpapers slightly oxidised, a very good copy. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper, "A. Booth, presented by the Author, September 18th, 1843". Neurypnology is the first published work on hypnotism. "Braid inaugurated modern hypnotism, the word itself being introduced by him. His theories were adopted by Broca, Charcot, Liébeault, and Bernheim; thus he founded the French School" (Garrison and Morton). At the time of writing this book, Braid "did not yet have a full understanding of the psychological processes involved in hypnosis, believing that hypnotic phenomena were produced by functional changes in the nervous, muscular, circulatory and respiratory systems. However, he did recognize that hypnosis was a subjective phenomenon, dependent entirely on the state of mind of the hypnotized and not on any mystical fluid or occult magical power wielded by the hypnotizer" (Norman).

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.

        Letters and Sketches: with a Narrative of a Year's Residence among the Indian Tribes of the Rocky Mountains

      Philadelphia: M. Fithian, 1843. 8vo. (7 1/8 x 4 3/8 inches). 13 lithographed plates (including folding allegorical plate, often lacking). Publisher's brown cloth, covers pictorially stamped in blind, spine ruled and lettered in gilt (minor wear) The scarce first issue of the first edition of Father De Smet's epistolary narrative of a journey to the Rocky Mountains: a seminal early work on Montana. This account describes De Smet's experiences in the Rocky Mountains in 1841 and 1842. "On April 30, 1840 Father De Smet left Westport in company with the annual party of the American Fur Company for rendezvous on the Green River, and returned in the fall of that year. In 1841, he journeyed to the Rockies again, here he remained for nearly a year [serving as a missionary at St. Mary's near present day Stevensville, Montana]. In the Spring of 1842, he continued his journey west, arriving at Fort Vancouver early in June, and returned to Saint Louis by way of Fort Colville, Fort Union, and the Missouri River" (Wagner-Camp).A leading advocate for Indians, particularly the Flathead tribes of Montana, his works are some of the best sources of the period, well-written and articulate. The lithographed views include "Chimney Rock on the Oregon Trail," "A View of the Rocky Mountains," "Devil's Gate," "Soda Springs," "Fording the River Platte," "Indian Mode of Travelling," "Interior of a Kanza Lodge," "Kanza Village," "Worship in the Desert," and others. The large folding allegorical plate, often found lacking, is present here. Wagner-Camp 102:1; Howes D283, "b"; Field 1423; Sabin 82262; Tweney 89, 13 (note); Streeter Sale 2095; Graff 3823.

      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)

      Leipzig, T. O. Weigel, 1843. - Ca. 22 x 14 cm. XII Seiten, 403 (1) Seiten, mit 6 Textskizzen und 12 (2 gefalteten, 8 getönten) lithographischen Tafeln. Erste deutsche Ausgabe. Engelmann 144; Embacher 60; Henze I, 415. Der schottische Asien-Forscher aus der Familie des Dichters Robert Burns, Sir Alexander Burnes (1805-1841), wurde von der britischen Regierung immer wieder mit schwierigen diplomatischen Missionen betraut. In Kabul war er von 1836 bis 1838 zur Anknüpfung von Handelsbeziehungen tätig und sammelte dabei das Material für sein hier vorliegendes Reisewerk. Ausführlich berichtet er über die politische und wirtschaftliche Situation sowie das gesellschaftliche Leben. 1838 musste er Kabul verlassen, kehrte jedoch 1839 zurück und starb 1841 bei einem Afghanenaufstand. Die Tafeln zeigen Ansichten von Umritzir und Kabul sowie Trachten der Jakiakrieger, Beluchis etc. Teilweise etwas gebräunt bzw. stockfleckig, Stempel auf Titel, rechte obere Ecke des Titelblatts mit hinterlegtem Eckabschnitt. Schönes Exemplar. Neuerer Halblederband mit Rückenschild. [Attributes: First Edition]
