        Louis Spohr's Celebrated Violin School, Translated from the Original. Dedicated to the Author's Friend Edward Taylor Esqr. Gresham Professor Music. By John Bishop

      London Published only by R. Cocks & Co....Music Sellers in Ordinary to her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria 1. [no date] [1843]. Folio, 355 x 245 mms., pp. [iv], v [vi blank], 235 [236 blank], engraved throughout, including three full-age engraved plates illustrating violin posture and hand position, original embossed cloth, rebacked with old spine laid down, corners restored; childish scrawl of hands on verso of title-page, fore-edges a bit rough , but a very good copy. Spohr (1784 – 1859) published his Violinschule in 1832, and an English translation by C. Rudolphus appeared almost immediately. It codified many of the new conventions and practices of violin playing, and Spohr introduced his chin rest, which he had invented in about 1820. His pupil, U. C. Hill, produced a revised edition of the English translation in 1839. This new translation by John Bishop, who asserts in the preface (dated January 1843) that "numerous accidentals which, through oversight, were omitted in the German copy have, in this edition, been carefully inserted during the revision of the plates; so that, in this respect, I think I may lay claim to greater accuracy than even the original itself."

        A Christmas Carol. In Prose

      London: Chapman & Hall,, 1843. Being A Ghost Story of Christmas ... with illustrations by John Leech. Octavo. Original brown vertical fine-ribbed cloth, spine and upper cover decorated and lettered gilt, sides stamped in blind, green endpapers, gilt edges. Hand-coloured etched frontispiece and 3 plates after Leech. 1950s gift inscription to front free endpaper. Spine faded, a few small spots to cloth. An excellent copy, the contents fresh. First edition, first issue, with "Stave I" on the first page of text and green endpapers. These handcoloured endpapers, Dickens's original choice for his lavish gift book, proved a disappointment. The colour dusted off and smudged, 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 pre-publication choice.

        Travels Through the Alps of Savoy and Other Parts of the Pennine Chain with Observations on the Phenomena of Glaciers

      - 1843 Adam & Charles Black, Edinburgh, 1st, 4to, pp.x, 424, 4 pgs ads, color lithograph frontis, 1 color & 7 bw lithographs, 9 color topographical sketches, 2 maps (1 lg fldg), text illus, appendices, orig blindstamped green cloth w/ gilt lettered spine with a 3-pg contemporary hand-written note; cloth spine faded, sharp corners, front hinge starting, name of J. Ladd to fep, fldg map w/ orig folds & no tears, very good. ----- Forbes was a Scottish physicist and glaciologist who made many observations and mountain expeditions in the Alps, Norway and Dauphiné. He visited Norway primarily for scientific research on glaciers. He wrote two books related to mountaineering, and over 100 papers on glaciers, which are the first English accounts of systematic Alpine exploration and description of various regions. This, his first book, is regarded as the most scientifically important of all books of Alpine travel. Included is a 3-page handwritten note, referencing page numbers within the text, discussing and calculating the necessity of ascending to Montanvert to obtain a true view of the Mer de Glace. It is possible this is in Forbes’ hand but was certainly written by one quite familiar with the area. From the collection of William S. Ladd with his son’s name in small print. Rare first edition with the folding map and a most interesting note. Meckly 073, Neate F45, Perret 1707. ----- Ladd, William S., MD. (1887 – 1949) – AAC Councilor (1923-25), Vice-President (1926-28), President (1929-31), Honorary Member (1949) and member of the Alpine Club of Canada, the Alpine Club, and Club Alpin Francais (honorary). He started climbing at an early age with ascents of Mt. Hood (1904, 1905, 1911) and in the Canadian Rockies (1905). He made the first ascent of Mt. Saskatchewan, Canada, (1923, with Conrad Kain), attempted Mt. Fairweather (1926) and was a member of the first ascent team in 1931, and climbed in the Alps (1928). Ladd oversaw the participation and the founding of the Union International des Associations d’Alpinism (UIAA) and gave the gift of the AAC’s first clubhouse, an old fire station located on the upper East side of Manhattan. During his term the first American Alpine Journal was published (1929). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        KA PALAPALA HEMOLELE A IEHOVA KO KAKOU AKUA O KE KAUOHA KAHIKO A ME KE KAUOHA HOU I UNUHIIA MAILOKO MAI O NA OLELO KAHIKO

      Oahu and Honolulu: Na Na Misionari I Pai, 1843.. 1451pp. Large, thick octavo. Contemporary ruled Hawaiian sheep. Binding rubbed, minor wear at extremities of joints. Small insect track in extreme lower edge of first eight leaves. Ink stamp of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions Library on front pastedown, verso of titlepage, and final text page. Scattered foxing and tanning. Very good, in original condition. In a half morocco box. The first joint publication of the Old and New Testaments as an entity in the Hawaiian language, printed for the American Bible Society at the Mission Presses in Oahu (Old Testament) and Honolulu (New Testament). A number of printings of various books or groups of books of the Bible were printed as early as 1827, and the first Hawaiian printing of the New Testament appeared in 1835, with the Old Testament following in 1838. These printings are frequently found bound together, although issued separately. This is the first publication of the complete approved text as an entity, paginated continuously, and issued as one book. The New Testament has its own titlepage (page 1129) and imprint. The verso of the first titlepage bears the words, "Ka lua o ke pai ana" (the second printing), referring to the only other printing of the entire Old Testament in 1838 at the same press. A second printing of the entire Bible was made later in 1843; but curiously enough, Judd, et al, record no other complete printing of the Bible in the Hawaiian language through 1899. A handsome copy of an important Hawaiian Bible, in a Hawaiian binding. JUDD 265. FORBES 1416. HUNNEWELL, pp.24-25.

        A Course of Twelve Elementary Lectures on Galvanism; Illustrated with Upwards of 100 Engravings of Experiments and Apparatus

      London: Published by Sherwood, Gilbert and Piper..., 1843. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, 190 x 108 mms., pp. xi [xii blank], [1] - 231 [232 blank, 233 - 236 adverts], steel-engraved frontispiece and 103 engraved vignettes in text (the last one mis-numbered "203") original embossed cloth, front cover stamped in gilt, spine also stamped in gilt, binding neatly repaired with association inscriptions preserved. Inscribed on top margin of front free end-paper, "To Professor Benjamin Silliman/ with the Author's Respect." Below that, in a later hand is the following notation: "This book - presented by William Sturgeon to Benjamin Silliman the elder (as is indicated by the inscription above) was purchased from 'Burnhams' in Boston - together with other books which had been owned by Silliman - in June 1822, by Thos D Lockwood, and is presented by him to his friend John J. Carty June 11,. 1908." On the front paste-down end-paper is a note in Silliman's hand: "Recc. October 5 1844/ Read and carefully looked through October 17 -- This little books is replete with valuable information conveyed in a correct & lucid style./ B. S." Sturgeon (1783 - 1850) trained as a shoemaker but began publishing works on mathematics and electromagnetism in the 1820s. He produced an astonishing number of papers on electricity in the ensuing years, but never achieved financial success. This was his last publication but one. The recipient of this volume, the American chemist Benjamin Silliman (1779 - 1864) was a Professor of Science at Yale and the first to distill petroleum. John Joseph Carty (1861 - 1932) was an American electrical engineer and a major contributor to the development of telephone wires and its attendant technology; he was instrumental in the development of the first transcontinental telephone line. Thomas D. Lockwood was one of Carty's correspondents.

        We Pity the Plumage, But Forget the Dying Bird' - An Address to the People on the Death of the Princess Charlotte

      [Thomas Rodd], London 1843 - 16pp, disbound from a volume at some point, t.e.g. Slightly browned, one or two spots of foxing, but generally clean. Wise notes that "In 1843, when advertising the present pamphlet for sale, Rodd 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. No example of this mysterious original has ever been unearthed . My own opinion is that no original ever existed . The motto 'We pity the plumage but forget the dying bird' was taken by Shelley from Paine's 'Rights of Man', 1817, Pt.I, p. 24, 'He [Burke] pities the plumage but forgets the dying bird'. This clearly denies any impression of the address dated 1816". The pamphlet decries the difference between the public concern for the death of the Princess and their indifference to the plight of the poorest in society (plus ca change) and also examines the execution of the leaders of the Pentrich Rising.

First printing of 7 importent papers on Quaternions and their applications. Hamilton announced his invention of Quaternions in 1843 at a meeting of the Royal Irish Academy and spent the rest of his years developing the subject. Hamilton's creation of a new algebra of quaternions (a noncommunicative algebra), became a turning point in the development of mathematics and a discovery which made possible the creation of the general theory of relativity. His algebra was later to form the basis of quantum mechanics and for the proper understanding of the atom.The creation of quaternions is one of the famous moments in the history of mathematics. "The quaternions came to Hamilton in one of those flashes of understanding that occasionally occur after long deliberation on a problem. He was walking into Dublin on 16 October 1843 along the Royal Canal to preside at a meeting of the Royal Irish Academy, when the discovery came to him. As he described it, "An electric circuit seemed to close."18 He immediately scratched the formula for quaternion multiplication on the stone of a bridge over the canal. His reaction must have been in part a desire to commemorate a discovery of capital importance, but it was also a reflection of his working habits. Hamilton was an inveterate scribbler. His manuscripts are full of jottings made on walks and in carriages. He carried books, pencils, and paper everywhere he went. According to his son he would scribble on his fingernails and even on his hard-boiled egg at breakfast if there was no paper handy."(DSB).Hamilton later developed his invention in his book from 1853 "Lectures on Quaternions" - see PMM: 334 and Grattan-Guiness "Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 1640-1940", pp. 460 ff

        Zeitung für den Kanton Luzern], Redaktion von Jakob Robert Steiger. 3. Jahrgang 1843.,

      Luzern, Druck und Verlag bei A. Petermann, 1843 - 33 x 23 cm. 104 Tageszeitungen (zweimal mal wöchentlich erschienen). 478 Seiten. *"Der Eidgenosse war eine 1830 von Anton Schnyder in Sursee gegründete bürgerlich-liberale Zeitung für den Kanton Luzern und darüber hinaus, die zweimal in der Woche erschien." 1841 kam es wegen politischer Meinungsverschiedenheiten in der Redaktion zu einer Trennung der Zeitung. Der Redakteur Jakob Robert Steiger schuf kurzfristig den eigenständigen und politisch radikalen Ableger "Der Eidgenosse von Luzern", der aber bereits 1844 von der Regierung verboten wurde und der Zensur zum Opfer fiel. Der vorliegende dritte (und letzte) letzte Jahrgang dieser freiheitlich gesinnten Zeitung, der kämpferische Geist und Freisinn der sogenannten "Radikalen" zieht erfrischend durch den ganzen Jahrgang. Vornehmliche Themen sind in diesem Jahr die Klosterfrage, die Jesuitenfrage und vor allem das neue "Preßgesetz", dem dieses Blatt trotz heftiger Gegenwehr und großer Unterstützung der Bevölkerung im folgenden Jahr schließlich zum Opfer fiel. Schon 1842 wurde der Redakteur mit mehreren Prozessen überzogen, u.a. wegen angeblicher Verläumdung der "hohen Regierung des Kantons von Luzern"). Die den Machthabern unliebsame Stimme des "Eidgenosse von Luzern" wurde schließlich durch entsprechende Auslegung des neuen Preßgesetzes (1843) im Folgejahr dauerhaft verboten, das junge Pflänzlein aufrechten freien Denkens damit aus dem Weg geschafft für die andersgearteten Interessen der Machthaber. [Nun ja, welche Staatsgewalt möchte schon freidenkende Bürger unter sich haben]. Nur die Angepassten (Zeitungen) konnten überleben. - Zu Jakob R. Steiger: "S. war ein führender Repräsentant der radikalen Richtung des Luzerner Liberalismus. 1844 gehörte er zu den Initianten der Vetobewegung gegen die Jesuitenberufung und beteiligte sich an der Vorbereitung des 1. Freischarenzugs. Beim 2. Freischarenzug von 1845, den er vom Aargau aus mitorganisiert hatte, wurde er gefangen genommen und in einem aufsehenerregenden Prozess zum Tode verurteilt. Er konnte fliehen und liess sich in Winterthur nieder. Nach dem Sonderbundskrieg zählte er in Luzern zu den Wortführern des freischärler. Radikalismus" (Hist. Lexikon der Schweiz). - Vollständiger Jahrgang 1843 mit 104 Tageszeitungen, ein sehr seltenes und historisch bedeutendes Dokument der schweizerischen Freiheitsbewegung. - Sauber und gut erhalten. ***Wenn Sie am gleichen Tag 2 oder mehr Bücher bei uns bestellen, erfolgt der Versand (innerhalb der Europäischen Union) kostenfrei für die gesamte Lieferung*** Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 1000 Blauer Pappband der Zeit (Einband etwas berieben).

        A Christmas Carol. In Prose being a Ghost Story of Christmas.

      London: Chapman & Hall 1843 - First edition. Small 8vo. (8), 166, (2) pp. Publisher’s brown cloth, gilt lettered and decorated to the spine and upper board, yellow endpapers, recent red quarter morocco clamshell box. Four colour plates including the frontispiece plus three illustrations in the text. Wear to the spine extremities with slight loss to the cloth at the foot, small closed split to the cloth along the lower joint, though the binding is sound. Smith, II, 4. It is notoriously difficult to establish the precedence of the states and issues of this first edition, with no clear definition provided by the major Dickens bibliographers. This copy conforms with all of the points of the first issue cited by Smith, who gives no issue precedence as regards the colour of the title page or endpapers. According to his summation this is the first state of the first edition, first issue with Stave I as the first chapter heading, a red and blue printed title page dated 1843 and yellow endpapers. Furthermore, it complies with Todd’s issue point regarding the interval between the blindstamped border and the gilt wreath on the upper board, a theory which Smith gives credence to. Nonetheless, other bibliographers such as Gimbel, contend that the first state of the book should present a red and green printed title page dated 1844 and have light green endpapers. Calhoun and Heaney provide a compelling explanation for this discrepancy by arguing that the green and red title pages were probably printed first, but were immediately set aside when Dickens insisted on the discarding of the green endpapers pre-publication. They speculate that as demand grew and stocks of the preferred title pages and endpapers ran low the original stock of green and red title pages and matching endpapers were bound up until they too were exhausted. With no absolute consensus it is impossible to make any categorical claims for any copy of the first edition, but this is certainly a very early issue.

        PLAN OF THE PARISH OF ST. GYLES OTHERWISE SARR IN THE COUNTY OF KENT. We the undersigned Tithe Commissioners for England and Wales do hereby certify this to be a copy of the map and plan referred to in the apportionment of the Kent Charge in lieu of tithes in the Parish of St. Gyles otherwise called Sarr in the County of Kent. As witness our hands signed William Blamire and T W Buller. Signed G H Whalley, Assistant Tithe Commissioner. [Signed with initials] E.J.W. 23/3/43

      Surveyor's signature abraded and so far not traced. [John ???man]. 1843 - Finely drawn manuscript tithe map, 25 x 18.75 ins. Ink and colour wash on paper, mounted and laid on linen. Some surface dirt and slight discolouring, later pencilling of names, with occasional additions in pencil. A very attractive mid-19th century Kentish tithe map of the parish now known as Sarre. An interesting feature of the map is that it shows an intricate network of water-filled ditches fed by the River Stour, which were presumably water-meadows. The scale is given at 6 chains to the inch. The fields are numbered and the owners' names have been pencilled on to the map in a later hand. We have obtained a copy of the tithe schedule dated 1841, and most of the information on ownership is the same. From this list we know the uses of each field, i.e. its cultivation (marsh, arable, pasture etc). It also identifies all the buildings on the map, with ownership and use. Using Google Earth, it can be seen that the modern field patterns remain remarkably consistent, the most obvious change being the arc of the railway which cuts across the lower right hand quadrant of the map and the addition of new housing developments. The windmilll still stands (in working order), with the nearby turnpike cottage still standing on the Ramsgate-Canterbury A253. It is truly remarkable that so little has changed in the more than 170 years that have passed since the map was made. The Tithe Commutation Act of 1836 set up the Tithe Commission headed by three Commissioners sitting in London, William Blamire (1790-1862), Captain Thomas Wentworth Buller, RN, (1792-1852) and the Rev. Richard Jones. By 1841 G.H. Whalley was an Assistant Commissioner. The Act allowed the substitution of a money payment - the tithe rent-charge - for payment in kind. The first tasks of the Commissioners were to find out where commutation had already taken place, and also to establish the boundaries of every unit in which tithes were paid separately. This unit was known as a tithe district to distinguish it from a parish or township. This map would appear to be a result of these enquiries.

        A CHRISTMAS CAROL

      1843. [the first issue, FINE] In Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas. With Illustrations by John Leech. London: Chapman & Hall, 1843. 2 pp undated ads. Original rose-brown cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition of Dickens's classic ghost story of Ebenezer Scrooge. Dickens wrote this in less than a month, motivated by financial need; he published it himself, with everyone else associated with the book working on a cost-plus basis. Though he wanted to produce a handsome gift volume (with colored plates, colored title page and all edges gilt), the expense of hand-colored plates cut considerably into his profits; as a result, this was his first and last book to include colored plates. The success of A CHRISTMAS CAROL (the first edition sold out on its publication day, 19 December 1843) put Dickens on a much firmer financial standing.~This is a copy of the first issue, with "Stave I" on p. [1] and with the text entirely uncorrected. It has the following additional issue points:~* title page in blue and red, dated 1843~* chalky green endpapers~ * 14-15mm between the gilt wreath and the left margin blind-stamping on the front cover~* a perfect "D" in "Dickens" in the front cover wreath~Bibliographers have disagreed over the years as to what if any significance these issue points may have, but according to the most recent exhaustive study (Todd's, analyzing the front cover), this copy is of the earliest state of the first issue. ~Except for a lengthy-but-discreet 1929 inscription on the front free endpaper, this copy is in FINE CONDITION: there is just one tiny droplet-mark on the front cover, and as usual the volume is slightly askew. Atypically, there is no wear at the spine ends, the endpapers are not cracked, and there are no repairs or "sophistication." The colored plates are clean and bright, and the textual leaves are entirely free of foxing.~Though the first edition of A CHRISTMAS CAROL is not a rare book, copies of the first issue in fine condition have become quite scarce -- as most copies coming onto the market are worn, or are faded, or have cracked endpapers, or have foxed leaves and darkened plates -- or all of the above; or, worse, have been re-cased, re-backed, or even re-bound. Not this copy. Smith II pp 16-29 (citing prior studies by Gimbel, by Calhoun & Heaney, and by Todd); Eckel pp 110-115. Housed in a felt-lined morocco-backed clamshell case.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS)

      Chelsea, 16 Dec. 1843. Letter. Carlyle's name in another early hand at the top of the letter. Minor wear at creases; some mounting traces on verso. Fine. Fine letter (4-3/4" x 7-1/2") consisting of @275 words on 2-1/2 pages on an integral sheet of paper addressed "My Dear Sir" dated 16 December 1843, 5 Cheyne Row, Chelsea, and SIGNED "T. Carlyle." Carlyle thanks the unknown recipient for samples of tobacco sent to him--"one of black common shag, the other of plain brown American leaf, unadulterated by any British manufacturing whatsoever"--and goes on at some length describing the qualities of the tobacco with several mentions of his wife, Jane. In part: "...all this [the black shag] I smoked, not without satisfaction, as a kind superior to any I could procure in these parts. The second specimen I am now engaged in,--and, alas, nearly thro' it; I write to you now for a further supply of this. It comes the nearest to smokeable tobacco of all I have had since last year when some invaluable smuggled Cavendish[?] was ministered to me.... You have great things on the anvil, we hear, at present! May the Destinies will it all to happiness for yourself and another. We are well; at least, well for us, poor [?], ever-afflicted creatures."

        A CHRISTMAS CAROL

      1843. With Illustrations by John Leech. London: Chapman & Hall, 1844. 2 pp undated ads. Bound in full green morocco with gilt-paneled spine. The extremely-scarce so-called "Trial Issue" of A CHRISTMAS CAROL -- with half-title printed in green, and with title page dated 1844 and printed in red and green. (In addition, like subsequent earliest copies, the text is "uncorrected" and the Page 1 sub-heading reads "Stave I".) "Trial issue" is almost certainly a misnomer: it is now generally believed that this constitutes the very first issue, quickly altered by Dickens. Quoting Gimbel, who in turn is quoted in Smith...~Completing the work before the end of November (1843), Dickens decided to publish the book himself and gather all the profits... He wanted the CAROL to be a beautiful gift book and took pride in its development. He stipulated the following requirements: a fancy binding, blind-stamped, with gilding on the spine and front cover; all edges gilded; four full-page hand-colored etchings; half-title and title pages printed in colors of bright red and green; and hand-colored green endpapers to match the green title page... However, in examining printed copies prior to publication, Dickens was diusappointed in the appearance of the green titles, which turned drab, and the hand-colored green endpapers, which dusted off and smudged, and had the title page changed to red and blue, the date on the title page changed from 1844 to 1843, and the endpapers changed to yellow, which did not require hand work. Dickens's changes were completed by December 17 and all presentation copies of that date (two days prior to publication) have the above changes.~Because Dickens already had a supply of chalky green endpapers on hand, there are many copies with 1843 title pages printed in red and blue that have those green endpapers, as well as many with Dickens's preferred yellow ones. There are not, however, many copies with the 1844 title page printed in red and green.~This copy is rebound in full dark green morocco with gilt-paneled spine, with later (yellow) endpapers replacing the original chalky green ones that undoubtedly existed in the original binding. The leaves are generally rather thumbed and soiled; the gilt page edges have dulled, less so on gathering H which also contains several corrected-text points (possibly implying that this gathering may have been provided from another copy); the color plates do remain quite bright, though the frontispiece does have a couple of closed tears (no loss). The upper margin of the title page bears a signature dated 10 January 1844, and the half-title bears a signature dated in July 1847 plus the words "L'pool to Cape 65 days". Overall, good-plus condition -- of an issue that we are here offering for the first time in our 29 years of business. Smith II pp 16-29; Podeschi (Gimbel) A79 (first five copies).

        Diary of Travels and Adventures in Upper India, from Bareilly, in Rohilcund, to Hurdwar, and Nahun, in the Himmalaya mountains, with a tour in Bundelcund, a sporting excursion in the kingdom of Oude, and a voyage down the Ganges, by C. J. C. Davidson ... late Lt.-Colonel of Engineers, Bengal

      London: Henry Colburn, 1843. 2 volumes, octavo. (7 1/2 x 4 5/8 inches). Contemporary calf bound for the Northern Light Board, covers with a border built up from fillets ruled in gilt and blind, the spines in six compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, green morocco in the third, the uppermost compartment tooled in gilt with Northern Light Board stamp, the others with repeat panelling in gilt, marbled endpapers, marbled edges. A very fine copy of the first edition of this charming and surprisingly rare work. As the title suggests, the work is in fact made up of a series of narratives describing various trips made by the author. The first volume is in three parts. The first part, "Travels from Bareilly, in Rohilcund, to Hurdwar and Nahun," ends abruptly on p.168. On the following page, whilst bewailing the loss to the "literature of the age", the author explains that "a vile thief entered my tents at night, and robbed me of my second volume ... In this manner did I lose my carefully-written account of the sub-Himalayan range, which cost me fully eight months' labour while in the hills"'. The second part in the first volume is on Bundelcund, and the volume ends with the first section of the author's "Journal of a Voyage [started in December 1839] from Allahabad to Calcutta, via Dacca and the Soonderbunds". Volume two is made up of the concluding part of the "Journal of a Voyage...", followed by "A Sporting Tour [undertaken in 1836] in the Kingdom of Oude". The writing style of the author, which manages to be both humourous and bombastic at the same time, allied with his obvious deep knowledge of the country and the people are what give this work its period charm. The work is quite rare, with no other copies listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty five years. A fine copy of a delightful gem which deserves a place in any serious collection of books on the Indian sub- continent.
