        The Order of Daily Service, the Litany, and the Order of the Administration of the Holy Communion, with Plain-Tune, according to the use of the Unified Church of England and Ireland. [The Book of Common Prayer].

      London: James Burns, 1843.. INSCRIBED BY WILLIAM AND MARY WORDSWORTH. Small quarto, unpaginated. Finely printed in Gothic script with red headings and capitals. Formally INSCRIBED by William and Mary Wordsworth to her nephew, the Rev. George Hutchinson, as a legacy in consideration of his efforts to secure a position at the Cathedral of Carlisle. Written in black ink to fly-leaf, most likely in Mary's hand. In contemporary dark brown full morocco with raised bands and gilt titles to spine, stamped by the publisher to base of spine. All edges gilt; marbled endpapers. Spine and fore-edges rubbed; very good indeed. George Hutchinson was the son of Mary Wordsworth's younger brother Thomas Hutchinson. Following his ordination, George seems to have tried and failed to secure a sought-after position at the Cathedral of Carlisle, near his family in the Lake District, and instead was offered a comfortable rural post in the spa town of Malvern, Worcestershire, through the influence of the Wordsworths. A decade on, in 1853, George left Malvern following a relationship collapse and near-total breakdown, crossing the Atlantic to become a minister on the coast of Labrador in Canada. His descendants later moved to Newfoundland.

        A Christmas Carol

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1843. FIRST ISSUE, FIRST STATE. Cloth binding. Very Good. LEECH, JOHN; LINTON, W.J.. FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE of Dickens's classic; in beautiful original cloth gilt and with magnificent hand-colored plates by John Leech. "In October 1843 [Dickens] had the sudden inspiration of writing a Christmas story intended to open its readers' hearts towards those struggling to survive on the lower rungs of the economic ladder and to encourage practical benevolence, but also to warn of the terrible danger to society created by the toleration of widespread ignorance and actual want among the poor. The result, written at white heat, was A Christmas Carol: in Prose, published by Chapman and Hall on 19 December as a handsomely bound little volume with four hand-coloured illustrations by John Leech, price 5s. This 'Ghost Story of Christmas', as it was subtitled, was a sensational success. The story of the archetypal miser Scrooge's conversion to benevolence by supernatural means, and the resulting preservation of the poor crippled child, Tiny Tim ('who did NOT die'), was greeted with almost universal delight (in the February 1844 number of Fraser's Thackeray called it 'a national benefit and to every man or woman who reads it a personal kindness')..." American National Biography. First State : Publisher's vertically-ribbed cinnamon cloth. Blind-stamped cover enclosing an intricate holly and ivy border; front cover lettered in gilt within a wreath of holly and leaves. Spine decoratively stamped and gilt-lettered as well. All edges gilt, original mint coated endpapers. Closest interval between the blind-stamping left border and left extremity of the gilt wreath measuring 14mm, with the upper serif of the "D" in "Dickens" within the wreath unbroken. Two pages of publisher's advertisements at the end. With the text uncorrected. "Stave I" as the first chapter heading. Red and blue printed title-page dated 1843, half-title and verso printed in blue. Complete with marvelous hand-colored etched frontispiece as well as an additional three hand-colored steel-engraved plates (plates facing pages 25, 78, and 150) by John Leech. Four wood-engraved text illustrations (on pages 37, 73, 119, 164) by W.J Linton after John Leech's designs. Full title: A Christmas Carol. In Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas. London: Chapman & Hall, 1843. Octavo, original cloth rebacked with nearly all of the original spine laid-down; custom half-morocco box and chemise. Early owner's signature on title page. Occasional light foxing but overall text very clean; slight lean to text block. A touch of uniform toning to plates. Cloth exceptionally clean. A very handsome first issue, first state copy in the rare original cloth.

        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.

        Mexican Retablo Painting of St. Benedict of Palermo, "Black America's Patron Saint." 1843

      Mexico. 1843. Oil on tin retablo painting depicting San Benito de Palermo, also known as "The Holy Black," who was the patron Saint of Negro Slaves in America and the Saint invoked against smallpox. Measuring 10.5" x 8.25". It is signed "B.J. Mexico Marzo 10 de 1843" on the floor at the left side of the saint. In very good condition, with some bending to corners, an area of paint loss and staining above the head of the figure, and a small flakes on his right arm.St. Benedict is pictured in his blue Franciscan robe, standing beside a table that holds a skull and a scourge, also shown with his saintly attributes: the flaming sacred heart on his chest and a large crucifix."The Italian black Catholic saint's name was Benedict, of Palermo, Sicily, and he was the son of African slaves. In life, Benedict was an ascetic healer who devoted his life to the humble teachings of St. Francis; in death, he was used by the Church and colonial European powers to convert African slaves to Roman Catholicism. But he was genuinely adored as a grassroots saint who also inspired black identity and pride. While he was not the first black saint in church history, he was the first to pass through the gauntlet of canonization after authority over the process passed exclusively to the pope in Rome. Although he never set foot in America, he is often referred to as the patron saint of African-Americans.The year of the present painting, 1843, was an important year in the fight for the abolition of slavery worldwide. It was in that year that the East India Company became increasingly controlled by Britain and abolished slavery in the territories controlled by the company through the Indian Slavery Act. Treaties were signed by Britain to suppress the slave trade with Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia, and Mexico.Retablo paintings were usually small devotional paintings made by Mexican folk artists, inspired by vertical paintings of saints displayed behind the altars of Roman Catholic churches. While not uncommon, most examples seen are from the 20th Century and images of St. Benedict are exceptionally uncommon.A rare artistic image of the black saint created at a significant time in the history of slavery in America. .

      London: Winsor & Newton,, 1843. As given in the reports of the commissioners on the fine arts, compiled and arranged by artists' colour-makers to the Queen, and to H. R. H. Prince Albert. Octavo (185 x 123 mm). Bound for presentation by Westleys & Clark in pale brown calf titles to front cover gilt, elaborate gilt frames to covers, spine fully gilt, edges gilt, yellow moiré endpapers. Black and white illustrations to text. Binder's ticket to foot of rear pastedown. Slight bumps and rubbing to extremities, rubbing to joints, boards lightly soiled with a couple small scratches, very light foxing to prelims and endmatter; a very good copy. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the authors on the front free endpaper, "To C. Stanfield Esq. R. A., respectfully presented by his obedient humble servants, W. Winsor & H. Newton." The recipient was Clarkson Stanfield, elected as a Royal Academician in February 1835, who "between 1820 and his last submission in 1867 showed 135 paintings at the Royal Academy, his only absences being from 1822 to 1826, in 1828, and (owing to a tour) in 1839" (ODNB). He played an active role in the Royal Academy, repeatedly serving on their council, and in 1852 became a member of the hanging committee. Originally a theatre painter, Stanfield was described by Ruskin as, "the leader of the British Realists, and, next to Turner, the noblest master of cloud forms of all our artists" (ODNB). Winsor and Newton were the first developers of the commonly used glycerine based watercolours, and have been important producers of art materials since they were established in 1832. An uncommon work, traced in seven institutions world-wide.

Small octavo, bound in contemporary three quarters calf over marbled boards, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, morocco spine label, marbled endpapers, with colored illustrations, eight illustrations in all, the frontispiece plate is "Mr. Fezziwig's Ball," as in the first London edition. In near fine condition. A Christmas Carol "may readily be called the Bible of Christmas It was issued about ten days before Christmas, 1843, and 6000 copies were sold on the first day the number of reprintings have been so many that all attempts at the figures have been futile. Altogether 24 editions were issued in the original format" (Eckel, 110). "It was a work written at the height of Dickens' great powers, which would add to his considerable fame, bring a new work to the English language, increase the festivities at Christmastime, and contain his most eloquent protest at the condition of the poor" (John Mortimer). "Suddenly conceived and written within a few weeks, [A Christmas Carol] was the first of Dickens' Christmas books (a new literary genre thus created incidentally) it was an extraordinary achievement--the one great Christmas myth of modern literature."

      London: James Burns, 1843. INSCRIBED BY WILLIAM AND MARY WORDSWORTH. Small quarto, unpaginated. Finely printed in Gothic script with red headings and capitals. Formally INSCRIBED by William and Mary Wordsworth to her nephew, the Rev. George Hutchinson, as a legacy in consideration of his efforts to secure a position at the Cathedral of Carlisle. Written in black ink to fly-leaf, most likely in Mary's hand. In contemporary dark brown full morocco with raised bands and gilt titles to spine, stamped by the publisher to base of spine. All edges gilt; marbled endpapers.Spine and fore-edges rubbed; very good indeed. George Hutchinson was the son of Mary Wordsworth's younger brother Thomas Hutchinson. Following his ordination, George seems to have tried and failed to secure a sought-after position at the Cathedral of Carlisle, near his family in the Lake District, and instead was offered a comfortable rural post in the spa town of Malvern, Worcestershire, through the influence of the Wordsworths. A decade on, in 1853, George left Malvern following a relationship collapse and near-total breakdown, crossing the Atlantic to become a minister on the coast of Labrador in Canada. His descendants later moved to Newfoundland. 'The Telegram (St John's)', 17th August 2008.

        Friedrich Wilhelm I V, King Of Prussia Letter Signed 1 Piece Berlin: June, 1843

      Friedrich Wilhelm III. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1843. Paper. (Estate of John F. Lewis). Friedrich Wilhelm IV, King of Prussia. Letter Signed. 1 piece. Berlin: June, 1843. The document above is one among many important manuscripts which John Frederick Lewis, a highly regarded philanthropist, lawyer, and early 20th-century collector, used as primary source material for a comprehensive genealogy of his forbears. His chronological narrative was meant to chart the various world-historical developments and circumstances which ultimately led to the confluence of Mr. Lewis' Continental ancestors and those of the Mayflower Colony, and it extended even to his own lifetime. Housed in altogether fifteen portfolio volumes, the project was the culmination of decades of painstaking research and discerning collecting of the highest order. Most of the manuscripts in Mr. Lewis' collection have not appeared at auction for a century, or more. ; Signed by Author; 0 .
