        A Christmas Carol. In Prose. Being A Ghost Story of Christmas. With illustrations by John Leech.

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1843 - Octavo. Original light reddish-brown vertical fine-ribbed cloth, spine and front cover decorated and lettered gilt, sides stamped in blind, green endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a red cloth chemise and red quarter morocco solander box. Binding rolled and a little dulled, a few nicks to extremities of spine. A very good copy. Hand-coloured etched frontispiece and 3 steel-engraved plates after Leech, wood-engravings within the text by W. J. Linton after Leech; title page printed in blue & red. First edition, first impression, first issue, with "Stave I" on the first page of text and green endpapers, 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. Eckel pp. 110–15; Smith II, 4; Todd, The Book Collector, 1961, pp. 449-54. [Attributes: First Edition]

        DIE JUDENFRAGE

      Friedrich Otto, Braunschweig(1843). First edition. Modern boards, 8vo, (4) , 115 pages. While Bauer regarded emancipation from the thraldom of medievalism as the object of modern civilization, he had no sympathy whatsoever with the Jews' struggle for political, social and religious emancipation. At a time when the Jews of Germany strove hard to obtain their long-withheld political freedom and equality, and when many, in order to assert their full claim to citizenship, went so far as to urge the rejection of every vestige of Orientalism from their religious life, Bauer published "Die Judenfrage, " in which he finds the continual oppression of the Jews by the Christian state perfectly justified. He declares that by their loyalty to their own history they stand in opposition to the powers that be, because religion and race force them to live in perpetual separation from the rest of mankind, and that the fact of their being Jews prevents them from being perfect men. Judaism, whether it be based on the Mosaic or the Talmudic law, has, in Bauer's opinion, no claim to a share in the world's progress and freedom. He ridiculed the Reform movement and denied them the very right of modernization. Thus, in his opinion, there is absolutely no salvation for the Jew, not even if he should join the Christian majority. " (JE) . Bauer's attack on the Jews evoked replies from many, including Gabriel Riesser, Samuel Hirsch, Holdheim, Geiger and most significantly, Karl Marx in his "Zur Judenfrage" (1843) . Good condition, although pages are a bit brittle and browned. Important. (RAB-62-11)

        The Modern History and Condition of Egypt, its Climate, Diseases, and Capabilities;

      London: Smith, Elder, and Co.,, 1843. exhibited in a personal narrative of travels in that country: with an account of the proceedings of Mohammed Ali Pascha, from 1801 to 1843; interspersed with illustrations of scripture history, the fulfilment of prophecy, and the progress of civilization in the east. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth (volume 1 fine-diaper, volume 2 vertical-ribbed), spines gilt lettered and blocked with Egyptian motifs), covers with differing ornamental blind panelling, yellow coated endpapers. Lithograph portrait frontispieces of Mohammed Ali and Ibrahim Pasha, 12 tinted lithograph plates (8 views), one wood engraving in the text. Spines slightly cocked and lightly sunned, inner joints of volume I cracked but sound, some foxing to plates. A very good set, with the errata slip in volume I, the cloth bindings bright and sharp-cornered. First edition of this spirited and engaging account, illustrated with simple but appealing illustrations, lithographed by Hullmandel from Yates's own sketches. "A very interesting work by a medical man who travelled extensively in Egypt c. 1840 … Yates also provides an extensive general commentary on political events in Syria, Crete and Egypt in addition to the ordinary account of his travels" (Blackmer). The Scottish doctor William Holt Yates remains a frustratingly shadowy figure. We do know that he was a member of the Royal Asiatic Society (admitted 1834) and president of both the Royal Medical and Royal Physical Societies of Edinburgh, and senior physician to the General Dispensary at Aldersgate in the City, during a time when the young David Livingstone was taking extracurricular studies there. The publication of his book was timely as there was growing interest in Egypt following the Oriental Crisis of 1840, when European powers intervened following Muhammed Ali Pasha's attempt to establish a personal empire in the Ottoman province of Egypt, subsequent to his defence of Syria from Ottoman aggression. The British and Austrian navies blockaded the Nile delta and shelled Beirut; Muhammed Ali agreed terms, ratified at the Convention of London (15 July 1840). Yates would having been travelling in Egypt hot on the heels of fellow Scot David Roberts, who visited the country in 1838-39. Well represented institutionally but decidedly uncommon commercially.

        London - 1843.

      LONDEN TIJDENS DE INDUSTRI?LE REVOLUTIE?London?, staalgravure ?drawn and engraved from authentic documents & personal observation by D.R. Davies. Published Nov 1. 1843 under the superintendence of the Society of the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge by Chapman and Hall.? In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 39 x 63 cm.We zien Londen vanaf Kensington Palace in het westen tot aan de West India Docks (van waaruit de schepen vertrokken naar de Cara?ben, tegenwoordig deel van de Docklands/Canary Wharf) in het oosten; en vanaf Bayswater met het Caledonian Asylum (tegenwoordig Purcell School) en de New Cattle Market (gesloopt in de jaren 1950) in het noorden tot aan de cricketvelden van The Oval en de Royal Surrey Gardens (het tegenwoordige Pasley Park) in het zuiden. Interessant zijn ook de duidelijk gemarkeerde trac?s van de verschillende treinverbindingen van de London and Greenwich Railway (aangelegd 1836-38), de Blackwall Railway, de Eastern Countries Railway (aanleg begonnen in 1839) en de Birmingham Railway (geopend in 1838). Station London Victoria is er nog niet, dat opent pas in 1860.De ?Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge? was een typisch Britse ietwat archa?sche organisatie, opgericht in 1828 op initiatief van de idealistische Lord Henry Peter Brougham. Het nobele doel van de Society was om useful knowledge te verspreiden onder de Engelse arbeiders- en middenklasse, via een reeks publicaties. Zij bevorderde zelfstandig leren en het egalitair verspreiden van kennis. Hoewel de S.D.U.K. nauw verbonden was met de London University en de uitgeverijen van Baldwin and Cradock, Chapman and Hall en Charles Knight, behaalde de S.D.U.K. haar ambitieuze doelen niet en sloot het haar deuren in 1848.Waarschijnlijk was het mislukt omdat de publicaties aan de ene kant te duur waren voor de beoogde doelgroepen en anderzijds niet groot en fraai genoeg voor de aristocratische markt. Niettemin slaagde de S.D.U.K. er in om enkele buitengewone atlassen met indrukwekkende detaillering te publiceren.Hun belangrijkste atlas bestond uit ongeveer 200 afzonderlijk uitgegeven kaarten, verkrijgbaar als abonnement van 1829 tot 1844 en naderhand gecombineerd in een wereldatlas, uitgegeven bij Chapman and Hall. In die tijd was de atlas onge?venaard in kwaliteit en omvang.Tegenwoordig zijn S.D.U.K. kaarten indrukwekkende voorbeelden van cartografie uit het midden van de 19e eeuw en kennen we vooral de mooie en gedetailleerde stadsplattegronden.Prijs: ?475,-.

        THE FRIEND OF AUSTRALIA;

      - or, A Plan for Exploring the Interior, and for Carrying on a Survey of the Whole Continent of Australia. By a Retired Officer of the Hon. East India Company's Service. Illustrated with a Map of Australia, and Five Plates. Pp. xxiv+428+[2](Supplemental note, verso blank), 5 double page plates (4 being hand-coloured aquatints), large folding map at end, appendix; modern half calf, the spine ruled in gilt around raised bands, with gilt lettered and decorated maroon leather title labels; marbled papered boards; new endpapers (retaining an earlier unidentified bookplate dated 1843), pencilled signature on verso of title page, scattered light foxing; Hurst, Chance and Co. London, 1830. First edition. F. 1379; Wantrup 117a; Abbey \i Travel 11. 574. *This copy lacks the 16 page publisher's catalogue, which according to Wantrup was present only in the 'earliest issue.' A second edition, comprising unsold sheets of the first edition with a new title page and an updated preface, was published by Smith, Elder in 1836. (This firm took over the remaining stock some time after the initial publication, and by 1833 were advertising that 'only 250 copies of this expensively got up work' were printed [see Wantrup p. 193]). 'The supreme monument to the speculative geography of the 1820s and 1830s . His eccentric plan for the survey of the interior is a monument to the fascination exerted by the vast unknown interior on contemporary Europeans. He offers detailed and elaborate advice on the preparation and conduct of his proposed expedition, suggesting the importation of elephants and camels, the construction of special craft to navigate the inland sea and so on. As well, he devotes attention to other matters relating to the future of society in Australia. Everything from the planning of towns to the establishment of a bunyip aristocracy has a place on his broad canvas' [Wantrup, pp. 192-23]. The map is an imaginative depiction of the Australian continent, including a large inland sea and 'the supposed entrance of The Great River'. The plates show scenes from Maslen's proposed exploring expedition, a plan for a township, and a design for an Australian flag. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Collation agrees with the online copy at University of California-Berkeley. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Souza Leite Azevedo, Portugal's consul general in Montevideo, defends himself against charges by the government of Uruguay that he was in league with Buenos Aires, providing numerous supporting documents. Uruguay had expelled him from Montevideo.The context here is the struggles in Uruguay between the liberal Colorados, who favored the the Unitarios in Argentina, opposed to the dictator Juan Manuel de Rosas, and the conservative Blancos, representing agricultural interests in the countryside, allied to Rosas. The Blancos were led by Manuel Ceferino Oribe y Viana, president of Uruguay from 1835 to 1838, while the Colorados were led by Fructuoso Rivera, who had been president from 1830 to 1834, and became president again from 1839 to 1843. On 15 June 1838, an army led by Rivera overthrew president Oribe, who fled to Argentina. Rivera declared war on Rosas in 1839. The conflict would last 13 years and become known as the Guerra Grande. In 1843, an Argentine army overran Uruguay on Oribe's behalf, but failed to take the capital. The siege of Montevideo, which began in February 1843, would last nine years. The besieged Uruguayans called on resident foreigners for help, which led to a French and an Italian legion being formed, the latter led by the exiled Giuseppe Garibaldi.*** Not in Innocêncio.

Die Identifizierung des Stammbuchhalters Glanz ergibt sich aus der ganzseitigen Eintragung von Johann Christian Reinhart (S. 97; Rom, 25. 3. 1843): "[.] Zugleich wünsche ich Ihnen verehrter Herr Glanz eine glückliche und vergnügte Reise". - Die Beiträger sind (in der Reihenfolge ihrer Eintragungen): 1) Alexius Fedor Geyer (Berlin). - 2) Adam Bamelmayr. - 3) Friedrich Strache (Wien). - 4) Robert Salemann (Reval). - 5) Heinrich Wilhelm(Heidelberg). - 6) Eduard Schwab (Mähren). - 7) Ivanoff (Petersburg). - 8) Peter Petersen (Copenhagen). - 9) Alexandre Reuben (Paris). - 10) Christian Friderik Holbeck (Kopenhagen). -11) Carl Mayer (Wien). - 12) Hermann Schievelbein (Berlin). - 13) Peter Raadfig (Kopenhagen). - 14) Carl Adolf Senff (Halle). - 15) Gustav W.

        South Australia in 1842. By one who lived there nearly four years. Illustrated by drawings

      London, J.C. Hailes and S. Gilbert, 1843. Octavo, 32 pages plus a small folding map (205 x 156 mm), an engraving of Adelaide and 2 full-page lithographs: 'Farm of J. Barton Hack ...Echiunga [sic] Springs, Mount Barker' and two portraits on the one plate of Kertamaroo (King John) and Mogata (his wife). Later (early twentieth century?) half calf and cloth, retaining the original pale yellow front wrapper (lettered 'South Australia in 1842') and with numerous binder's blanks at the rear to make a more substantial object; covers slightly rubbed at the extremities and high spots; wrapper lightly stained and creased, with the leading edge neatly reinforced (presumably when the binding was done); first and last leaves lightly foxed, with the last one lightly marked; trifling signs of handling; a very good copy. This copy contains the armorial bookplate of Henry Percival Moore (and his pencilled ownership initials on an early binder's blank). Moore was the Colonial Manager for the South Australian Company from 1901 to 1929. Interestingly, the lithographs are by George French Angas from the artwork of others - 'a sketch by Col. Gawler' in the first instance and from drawings 'Model'd from life by Mrs Walker [? - cropped to Walk]' in the second. Extracts from official reports and various statistics (up to August 1842), but predominantly first-hand accounts, often in the form of lengthy quotes from letters from settlers. The passage of time puts things into perspective. There is a PS to Alexander Lorimer's letter: 'I have neglected to mention, that vineyards are forming by many of the settlers'. The closely-printed two pages on Aborigines concludes with this paragraph: 'It is hoped, that a conviction of the deep responsibility which we have incurred, toward the aboriginal inhabitants of that beautiful country, of which we have taken possession, will render the minuteness of the preceding information not unacceptable'. Ferguson 3721 (not mentioning Angas).

        Lettre autographe signée à l'une de ses muses, la Comtesse Merlin : « vous ne connaissez que les roses de la littérature et nous avons toutes les épines. »

      - s.l. s.d. [circa 1843], 30,5x13,3cm, Une page et demie sur un feuillet remplié. - lettera autografa, ancora inedito, firmato da Honoré de Balzac a Maria de Las Mercedes Santa Cruz y Montalvo, Contessa Merlin. Uno e mezzo disegnati in inchiostro. Con l'assistenza del signor Hervé Yon, è stato possibile identificare il destinatario di questa lettera ancora inedita (apparirà nel terzo volume della Pleiade della corrispondenza di Balzac con il numero n ° 42-175). Come sceneggiatore del suo tempo, Balzac molto frequentata brillanti salotti letterari e artistici di Parigi. E 'stato intorno al 1830 che è stato presentato alla Contessa Merlin. Nato a Cuba, ha vissuto la prima parte della sua vita a L'Avana e in Spagna. Ha sposato un soldato dopo il re di Spagna Joseph Bonaparte. E 'diventata così la Contessa Merlin. Con la sconfitta francese, la famiglia è stata costretta a ritirarsi a Parigi. Contessa Merlin era un cantante brillante. Ha studiato musica al Garcia, il padre della Malibran, un altro cantante con cui l'opera contessa da allora in poi. Nella sua casa di Rue de Bondy, lei concerti organizzati regolarmente Balzac era un normale così come il compositore Rossini, Alfred de Musset o La Fayette. Mentre fornisce un nuovo incontro musicale Balzac si scusa se ci vuole: "[...] non eccessivo piacere della buona musica si fa oggi [...] Ho un lavoro di emergenza che non permette che me ne vada. " Si tratta a tutti gli effetti dai suoi viaggi in Germania e Russia per iniziare a revisione e correzione del colonnello Chabert. È per questo che si chiede, "a che ora si può venire a visitare, senza di te preoccuparsi [...] le mie mattine sono più liberi di mie serate sono come le mie notti, scattate da opere letterarie. " Contessa Merlin sarà il dedicatario di Marana. Ha sposato un soldato come l'eroina del romanzo: Juana. Le loro vite sono anche influenzati dalle variazioni di regime politico che costringono entrambi a lasciare la Spagna per la Francia. La contessa inoltre fornito il modello per la marchesa di San-Real che appare nella Storia del Tredici e la ragazza con gli occhi d'oro. Entrambi hanno una madre spagnola, ha trascorso la loro infanzia a L'Avana prima di terminare la loro vita a Parigi. Contessa Merlin trascorso le estati in una residenza a Versailles. Pertanto Balzac lo informò che ha provato il "go to Versailles scorsa estate, ma mi è stato detto si riceve persona. "Ha trovato la porta chiusa, perché" si stava lavorando ad un nuovo libro, che ho già sentito parlare da uno dei miei editori non ha eguali in vendita (vale a dire, per comprare) libri. "Oltre al suo talento musicale, Contessa Merlin è illustrato nella letteratura. Al momento della lettera è quello di lavorare per il rilascio di L'Avana che sarà pubblicato nel 1845. Esso non cesserà di scrivere e pubblicare: libro di memoria, biografia dell'artista, nuovo ... Questo è uno dei primi e più celebri donne della lettera cubana. Vedova dal 1839, si era rivolto alla letteratura sperando di migliorare le sue finanze. Il suo Avana è il primo libro che si occupa di Cuba sotto sociologica, politica e culturale. Anche se questo lavoro è stato scritto in francese, contiene al suo interno l'essenza della letteratura creola. Un movimento tra cui delle colonie spagnole che celebravano volgare nazionalista letteratura impronta di credenze e pratiche locali gli autori. Lei si incontrerà con un certo successo a Parigi. A differenza di Balzac che, nonostante una reputazione crescente soffre la sua mancanza di successo commerciale. Durante la sua vita, egli tirerà il diavolo per la coda. Eppure è un gran lavoratore, così ha detto a lui, "non sai che le rose della letteratura e abbiamo tutte le spine. " - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Exceptionnelle lettre autographe signée et encore inédite d'Honoré de Balzac à la comtesse Merlin. Une page et demie rédigée à l'encre noire. Balzac écrit ici à une célèbre femme de lettres et cantatrice d'origine espagnole et cubaine, qui lui inspira plusieurs personnages de la Comédie Humaine. Nous tenons à remercier M. Hervé Yon, spécialiste de Balzac, grâce à qui il a été possible d'identifier la destinataire de cette lettre (à paraître dans le troisième tome de la Pléiade de la Correspondance de Balzac sous le numéro 42-175). Maria de Las Mercedes Santa Cruz y Montalvo, née à La Havane en 1788, est issue d'une famille de la haute noblesse espagnole. Elle garda de son enfance passée à Cuba un tempérament « sauvage » (Sainte-Beuve) et un charme exotique qui la rendit célèbre à la cour du roi Joseph Bonaparte à Madrid, où elle rencontra le général Merlin, commandant de la garde royale. Elle l'épousa en 1811, avant de partir à Paris où ses talents et sa position la placèrent rapidement au premier rang de la haute société parisienne. Elle tint l'un des salons les plus fréquentés de Paris, notamment par La Fayette, George Sand, Mérimée, Chateaubriand, Musset, et recevant de nombreux compositeurs, dont Chopin, Verdi, Donizetti, et Rossini. Balzac y occupa une place de choix depuis sa première visite dans les années 1830. Dans ce cercle restreint qui entoure la comtesse Merlin, on parle littérature, on joue au lansquenet et on donne de nombreux concerts, auxquels la comtesse - à la voix de soprano unique - participe souvent.   À l'époque de la lettre, la comtesse prépare une nouvelle réunion musicale à laquelle Balzac s'excuse de ne pouvoir venir : « Je vous prie d'agréer mes excuses si je ne prends pas l'excessif plaisir de la bonne musique que vous ferez aujourd'hui [...] J'ai un travail d'urgence qui ne me permet pas de sortir ». De retour de ses voyages en Allemagne et en Russie, Balzac commence la relecture et la correction du Colonel Chabert, publié sous sa forme définitive en 1844. Malgré cette charge de travail, il l'interroge sur ses disponibilités : « [...] à quelle heure on peut venir vous faire visite, sans vous déranger [...] mes matinées sont plus libres que mes soirées qui sont comme mes nuits, prises par les travaux littéraires. » La comtesse avait également l'habitude d'établir ses quartiers d'été à Versailles et d'y inviter quelques amoureux de la musique.  Ainsi Balzac lui fait-il connaître qu'il a tenté de la rencontrer : « [...] à Versailles l'été dernier, mais on m'a dit que vous ne receviez personne [...] vous travailliez à un ouvrage nouveau dont j'ai entendu parler déjà par l'un de mes éditeurs qui n'a pas son pareil pour vendre (c'est-à-dire faire acheter) des livres. » La comtesse, qui connaissait déjà un large succès littéraire, s'était en effet attelée à l'écriture de son chef-d'

        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.

      London: Simpkin, Marshall and Co., 1843. First edition. Blindstamped cloth.. Very Good Minus. 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.

        WE PITY THE PLUMAGE, BUT FORGET THE DYING BIRD.' An Address to the People on The Death of the Princess Charlotte.

Preserved in a custom built box covered in brown cloth with leather spine label. Wise p46. Rodd, 'when advertising the present pamphlet for sale [ ] asserted that it was a facsimile reprint of an alleged original edition of which the author was said to have printed twenty copies in 1816.' Wise argues that this is the first edition. His main points are 'One thing is certain, and that is that had Shelley printed such a pamphlet he would not have restricted its circulation to twenty copies. The motto 'We pity the plumage, but forget the dying bird' was taken by Shelley from Paine's Rights of Man, 1817, Part 1, p.24. 'He [Burke] pities the plumage but forgets the dying bird'. This clearly denies any impression of the Address dated 1816.' Princess Charlotte dies in 1817. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die wichtigsten Giftpflanzen Deutschlands in illuminirten Abbildungen mit erläuterndem Texte, nebst Angabe ihrer Wirkung und geeigneter Mittel in Vergiftungsfällen, für Schule und Haus. Dritte Auflage.Ulm, F. Ebner (back of title-page text volume: printed by G. Sellmer), 1857. 8vo. 2 volumes (text and plates). With 18 hand-coloured, folded lithographed plates (36.5 x 23.5 cm) of poisonous plants (17) and fungi (1). Text volume, with its spine lined with green paper; plates loosely inserted in original publisher's printed paper boards.

      BMC NH, p. 1163. Third edition of a German schoolbook, depicting the most common poisonous plants. In the preface to the first edition of 1843, Christian Lörcher, a schoolteacher in Ulm, expresses his concern about the lack of knowledge of poisonous plants among students. Books on poisonous plants are either too expensive to buy or too difficult to comprehend for young people. He therefore wanted to publish the present affordable work. In an effort to keep the costs down, he only includes the most common poisonous plants and fungi. The plates have not been bound so that they can be mounted on cardboard and hung in full view in the students' classrooms. Lörcher accompanies the plates with short descriptions of each species. Plate 16 has slight damage to the margins and plate 17 a minor spot. A very good copy.
