        The Experience of George A. Spywood

      [Middleton, Massachusetts?: Charles H. Pelton, Printer?. 1843?]. Edition unknown. Small octavo. String-tied wrappers. 28pp. Stains and small nicks to the front wrap else a sound, very good copy. Autobiographical pamphlet by a Warwick, Rhode Island-born man claiming Native-American lineage (specifically that his father was a Pumham and his mother a Marshpee). The stated purpose of the pamphlet was to attempt to raise $80 to pay his debts. Spywood happily pursued the sailor's trade until after several voyages his friend, the captain, took ill and died. He later renounced his vices and took to the ministry after a vision. In 1844 he was given the pastorship of the Colored M.E. Church of Hartford, Connecticut, and took an active part in precipitating the schism of the A.M.E. Zionists from the Weslyans. It is possible that Spywood fabricated his Native American heritage for the purposes of this pamphlet, anticipating more sympathy if he hid his African ancestry. Perhaps more likely is that he was of mixed Native American and African ancestry. Carter G. Woodson references him as a Bishop in the Zionist faction in his study The Negro Church without referring to his ethnicity, and he is mentioned in several other histories of the Church. OCLC locates a single copy with the above publishing information, but this issue appears complete (collating 1-28pp., with separate wrappers) and contains no printing information. While we obviously have a vested interest in establishing the precedence of this version of the pamphlet, we strongly conclude that this copy has the feel of fulfilling the object of a mendicant pamphlet, and is likely both earlier than the 1843 version, and may indeed be unique. In any event it is rare. .

        CONTES DU TEMPS PASSÉ

      Paris: L. Curmer, 1843. n. Hardcover. Fürstenberg-Beraldi Copy of Engraved Fairy Tales, One of the Most Beautiful Books of the 19th Century. 273 x 184 mm (10 3/4 x 7 1/4"). lii, [86] pp. Preface and biographical note by M. E. La Bédollierre. SPLENDID NAVY BLUE MOROCCO, ELEGANTLY GILT, BY CUZIN (stamp-signed on front doublure), covers framed by multiple gilt rules with large fleuron cornerpieces, raised bands, spine heavily gilt in compartments with central leafy tool and volute cornerpieces, gilt titling, BEAUTIFUL CITRON MOROCCO DOUBLURES, VERY LAVISHLY GILT, with intricately tooled frame and cornerpieces enclosing a prominent filigree lozenge with a central oval containing the figure of Puss-in-Boots, marbled free endpaper and flyleaves, all edges gilt. In a (slightly chafed) suede-lined chemise backed with citron morocco and a matching morocco-trimmed slipcase. The main text ENTIRELY ENGRAVED by Blanchard and profusely illustrated with extra pictorial title, nine full-page vignette section titles, and 86 vignettes in the text, all engraved on copper. (Without the interleaved tissue guards called for by Ray.) A Large Paper Copy. Verso of marbled flyleaf with engraved bookplate of Albert Wander dated 1932 and with ex libris of Hans Fürstenberg; front flyleaf with morocco bookplate of Henri Beraldi (see below for all). Carteret III, 462-64; Ray 231; Henri Beraldi Library III, 1934, No. 372 (this copy). A SUPERB COPY--entirely clean and fresh internally, with a strong reluctance to open, and in a flawless binding. A work entirely engraved on thick papier vélin, this is a celebrated achievement among illustrated books of the 19th century, offered here in a sparkling copy sumptuously bound by Cuzin. First published in 1697, "Tales of Long Ago" is also known as the Mother Goose tales, and includes such favorites as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, and Puss-in-Boots. Perrault (1628-1703) reworked traditional folklore into sophisticated fairy tales for the denizens of the intellectual salons of Paris, ending each story with a (usually cynical) moral in couplets. He is credited with inventing the fairy tale genre, and the Brothers Grimm--not to mention Walt Disney--profited greatly from his oeuvre. Carteret points out that in addition to its artistic merits, the work is also more difficult to find in fine condition than other illustrated books of the period. Many copies were read to death by their juvenile audience, so a pristine copy like the present one is very uncommon. The work of the binder Cuzin, who died in 1890, was so well known and so highly esteemed that he was responsible for establishing what was called the "Cuzin style." Devauchelle says that this style was copied by Cuzin's colleagues, but was never equalled; the Cuzin tradition was sustained in its finest form by his celebrated successor Emile Mercier (who signed bindings from this period "Mercier s[uccesseu]r. de Cuzin"). At the same time that he was known for a particular elegant style, Cuzin was not afraid to be unconventional; lot #123 in the Courtland Bishop sale is a Cuzin binding described as being in "contemporary ivory colored human skin." (The sale catalogue description also contains the macabre understatement, droll in its clinical dispassion: "Books bound in human skin are very rare.") The elegant binding and unbelievably fine condition of our copy are appropriate in light of its provenance. Jean (Hans) Fürstenberg (1890-1982) put together one of the finest collections of 18th century French books ever assembled. Henri Beraldi (1849-1931) was perhaps the most distinguished and knowledgeable writer on French bindings of the 19th century; it is clear that the two men had equally refined taste, as seven of the books in the 1965 exhibition drawn from the riches of Fürstenberg's collection had been owned by Beraldi as well. Our third owner was Dr. Albert Wander (1867-1950), the Swiss pharmacist who invented Ovaltine.

        WINDSOR CASTLE

      1843. An Historical Romance. In Three Volumes. London: Henry Colburn, 1843. Original drab paper-covered boards with dark green cloth spines and printed spine labels. First Edition, in three volumes (with a frontispiece illustration in each, by George Cruikshank). Later that same year (1843), a "New Edition" was produced, which had additional illustrations; this latter version also appeared in eleven monthly parts dated 1844. Thus this is an unusual instance of a novel's book edition coming out before its serial parts edition.~WINDSOR CASTLE is one of several Ainsworth historical romances centered around a London landmark, illustrated by Cruikshank -- some of his most successful works: others are THE TOWER OF LONDON, OLD ST. PAUL'S and ST. JAMES'S.~This set is still in the very fragile original boards-and-label binding of the 1840s. As is proper, there is a half-title in Vol III only. The set is in good condition (volumes aslant, general edge-wear, one rear joint reinforced, original endpapers still retained except that the Vol III rear one is lacking). The spine labels are worn, and one spine additionally has some ink-splashes. All of this makes the volumes sound dreadful, but these early bindings do not often survive in any better shape. Sadleir (XIX) 32; Wolff 77; Cohn 18.

        First Carriage, the "Ariel"

      London Ackermann & Co. 1843 - Hand-Colored Aquatint ACKERMANN & CO. The First Carriage, the "Ariel". London: Ackermann & Co., 1843. Hand-colored aquatint. Matted, framed and glazed. Sheet: 17 x 22 3/4 inches, 432 x 578 mm. Frame: 25 1/2 x 22 1/2 inches; 645 x 542 mm. The bottom of the image reads "By permission of the patentees, this engraving of The First Carriage, The "Ariel", is respectfully inscribed to the directors of The Ariel Transit Company, by their obedient servants Ackermann & Co. London. Published March 28th 1843 by Ackermann & Co. 96 Strand" In our research we have not been able to find another hand-color copy in this large size. Framed in a black and gilt wooden frame. Some light soiling and scattered foxing to image. A few small tears to edges of sheet, but not visible while in the frame. Very good. William Henson (1812-1888) patented his Aerial Steam Carriage in 1842. "Henson's design was logically conceived, if only on paper, and his aerial carriage was a plausible expression of what an airplane should be. The showy publicity brought ridicule to the Aerial Steam Transit Company, but it also called worldwide attention to the pursuit of mechanical flight and fixed the vision of an elegant flying machine upon the public mind. Though the tests with models were unsatisfactory, they were nonetheless, a serious attempt to fly a propeller-driven, engine-powered airplane. The concept of the Aerial Steam Carriage was a lasting stimulus to other inquiring minds." (Air Transportation, Robert M. Kane, 43). HBS 64986. $2,500 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
