Very Good Plus. See description. The Conqueror Worm, January 1843, Graham's Lady's and Gentleman's Magazine. No. CCV, Philadelphia. Original magazine-First Edition. 60 pages with 6 other pages counting front and back. This is an extraordinarily rare copy of this poem. None have shown up as extant in a major internet search. From Wikipedia: "The Conqueror Worm" was first published as a stand-alone poem in the January 1843 issue of Graham's Magazine. Shortly after, it was included among several other poems by Poe in the February 25 issue of the Saturday Museum in a feature called "The Poets & Poetry of Philadelphia: Edgar Allan Poe". It was later included in Poe's poetry collection The Raven and Other Poems in 1845. That same year, it was incorporated into "Ligeia" for the first time when the story was reprinted in the February 15, 1845, issue of the New York World. "Ligeia" was again republished with "The Conqueror Worm" in the September 27, 1845, issue of The Broadway Journal while Poe was its editor. This was not unusual for Poe, who had also incorporated poems "The Coliseum" and "To One in Paradise" into tales. *The poem seems to imply that human life is mad folly ending in hideous death, the universe is controlled by dark forces man cannot understand, and the only supernatural forces that might help are powerless spectators who can only affirm the tragedy of the scene. "The Conqueror Worm" also uses the word "evermore", which would later evolve into "nevermore" in Poe's famous poem "The Raven" in 1845.[ Other famous authors included in this issue are James Fenimore Coop … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charlotte Elizabeth
New York; John S. Taylor, 1843. Publishers cloth. 12mo. 358 pages. 19 cm. First US edition. Singerman 0833. This novel is considered to be the first English language ‘Zionist Novel' (it predates George Eliot's ‘Daniel Deronda' by thirty years); the story concerns the return of an English Jew (Alick) to the Holy Land; it binds together English and Jewish history.This was the last novel the author wrote. Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna (1790-1846) wrote on the plight of English factory workers, was well known in her time for her novels and her Orange-Protestant essays and poems, was passionate about gardening, a pioneer of deaf education, and also wrote children's stories. In her later years she defended the rights of Judaism, and in her last three years was a close friend of Moses Montefiore, owing to her fundraising on behalf of the Jews of Mogador in 1844 (she raised the most money of anyone for the Jewish community in the besieged Moroccan coastal city), her public protest against the policies of Tsar Nicholas I towards Jews, and her 1844 letter to the Bishop of Jerusalem, entitled ‘Israel's Ordinances.' “As Tonna's health deteriorated rapidly, the Montefiores became devoted friends. When she set out on her final journey to Ramsgate from London, it was Montefiore who bade her farewell at the train station and handed her a basket of grapes.“ (Pg. 215; ‘Moses Montefiore: Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero'; by Abigail Green). Her work, "Days of Old,' by Charlotte Elizabeth (Mrs. Tonner)” was part of the sixth volume published by the American Jewish Publication Society in 1847 (Jewis … [Click Below for Full Description]

Loch, Captain Granville Gower
John Murray, London, 1843. "Anxious to see China and witness the operations then proceeding there, I took the opportunity that offered of my return from active service in the Mediterranean to apply in December, 1841, to the Admiralty for leave to join the Expedition, which was most kindly granted, and I embarked for a passage on board H. M. S. Dido by the invitation of her captain the Hon. H. Keppel, my old and esteemed friend." Loch (1813-53) served as an aide-de-camp to General Sir Hugh Gough and was present at the capture of Chinkiang Foo (Zhenjiang Fu) and at the signing of the Treaty of Nanking. The journal he maintained throughout the conflict served as the basis for this important account of the First Opium War. Loch was later killed in action during the Second Burmese War. Presentation copy, inscribed by Loch to the aforementioned H. Keppel (Admiral of the Fleet Sir Henry Keppel GCB, OM, 1809-1904) on the half-title: "From the Author to his sincere friend Harry Keppel." Keppel's bookplate appears on the front pastedown. 227 p. with a folding map. Octavo. Period full ruled calf binding, with decorative gilt stamping, a red morocco spine label, four raised bands, and brown endpapers.

KHANYKOV, Nikolay Vladimirovich.
St Petersburg: Imperial Academy of Sciences, 1843. Octavo (220 x 147 mm). Contemporary yellow marbled paper-covered boards, new leather label to the spine, edges sprinkled blue. A little rubbed and with some judicious restoration to joints and head and tail of the spine, light browning, a couple of short edge-splits to the maps professionally repaired, a very good copy. Lithographic portrait and 2 folding lithographic maps at rear, a regional map and a city plan of Bukhara. First and only edition, uncommon, just 9 locations recorded on OCLC. A classic of the literature of the Great Game, probably the first attempt at a scientific description of the Khanate of Bukhara. The author was the noted Russian orientalist, historian and diplomat Nikolay Khanykov (1819-1878) and is based on his experience during Colonel Konstantin Butenev's 1841-2 embassy to Bukhara. The mission was organised as a response to a request of the Bukhara's Khan, Nasrullah, for the dispatch of a geological officer "for the investigation of local ores and location of metals and precious stones". While the embassy was in Bukhara Butenev negotiated for the release of British intelligence officers Arthur Conolly and Charles Stoddart who had been detained there. Despite making contact with Stoddart, and obtaining some detail from him of both his reconnaissance of the region and the conditions of the prisoners' captivity, Butenev failed to obtain the British officers's freedom, and they were murdered soon after the Russian delegation left Bukhara. The book offers a detailed survey of the khanate; the last chapte … [Click Below for Full Description]

BENTHAM, Jeremy.
Edinburgh: William Tait, and London: Simpkin, Marshall, & Co., 1843. 11 volumes, octavo (221 x 140 mm). Contemporary smooth tan calf, decorative roll border to boards, spines decorated gilt in compartments, red and green morocco labels, marbled endpapers. Engraved armorial bookplate of the Liberal politician John Slagg, godson of Richard Cobden. An excellent set. First collected edition of Bentham's works, compiled under the supervision of his disciple and editor, John Bowring, assisted by John Hill Burton, who wrote the lengthy "Introduction to the study of Bentham's works". The collected works were first issued in 22 parts, at 9 shillings each, between the years 1838 and 1843. "The Works are not complete, for Bowring. refused to reprint the four attacks on religion, while the posthumous Deontology, being still in print, was also left out. Moreover, he made practically no attempt to publish any of the manuscript material bequeathed to him by Bentham; he was probably overwhelmed by the 173 portfolios containing upwards of 300 sheets each, much of it in Bentham's own execrable handwriting, the value of which he was not really competent to appreciate. Doubtless he salved his conscience by bequeathing this inheritance to University College for future students to quarry into and to publish. The tenth and eleventh volumes. consist of a most valuable but ill-digested and ill-arranged memoir compiled by Bowring from Bentham's papers and correspondence, and an exhaustive analytical index" (Muirhead).

Braid, James
John Churchill; Adam and Charles Black, London; Edinburgh. Original red cloth boards, with blind-stamped design to panels; professionally rebacked, with some fading to gilt lettering to spine. Minor chip at head of front panel. Contents: [2], [xxii], 265, [1] pages, followed by single leaf featuring "Notices of Mr. Braid's work on hypnotism" to recto and short list of conchology editions from Captain Thomas Brown to verso. Crabtree 465. The Scottish surgeon James Braid represents the fulcrum in this post-Mesmer history of medicine, where the mode of action that occasions the mesmeric trance is transformed from something material into something psychological (and soon thereafter: linguistic). With Braid's insistence on the neurological effects of suggestion, the "magnetic fluid" of animal magnetismwas soon replaced by the vocabulary of hypnotism that Braid introduces here: "neuro-hypnotism" beingthe condition of "nervous system as produced by artificial contrivance"(and the"hypnotist" as one who places others into a state of "nervous sleep"). The additional leaf at the end of this copy—which includes excerpts of reviews from the Edinburgh Evening Post, the Glasgow Citizen, the Manchester Times, and thePhreno-Magnet—isn't recorded by Crabtree, nor encountered in other copies of this 1843 edition.

Luigi Berletti (1803 - 1882)
Due rarissime vedute litografiche, prese da angolazioni diverse, di Piazza della Libertà, a Udine, realizzate da Luigi Bertelli. Le due litografie probabilmente erano parte del rarissimo Album pittorico del Friuli, composto da vedute di città, paesi e castelli del territorio friulano del primo Ottocento, e stampate a partire dal 1841 con l'innovativa tecnica litografica su pietra bavarese. L'iniziativa è opera di Ottavio Codecasa (che dell'Album sarà anche editore) e Marco Moro. Le prime vedute dell'Album pittorico del Friuli furono stampate a Udine, presso la litografia Luigi Berletti, a partire dal 1841. Ogni scenario è popolato da personaggi ritratti nella loro vita cittadina o agreste, immersi in una serena atmosfera frutto dell'interpretazione romantica del paesaggio. La piazza nel Cinquecento e fino al 1945, era detta Piazza Contarena. La prima veduta, su disegno di Giuseppe Filippi, è datata 1842 e reca nel margine inferiore la dedica di Luigi Berletti al conte Lodovico Rota, socio dell'Accademia di Udine. La prospettiva guarda allo splendido Porticato di S. Giovanni, che si appoggia alla Torre dell'Orologio. Sulla destra del porticato, si nota la grande statua di Ercole. Sulla sinistra, la veduta include alcune arcate della Loggia del Lionello. La seconda litografia, su disegno di G.B. Cecchini, è datata 1843, ed è dedicata da Berletti al conte Antonio Beretta. La veduta prospettica è dal lato Nord della piazza, alle spalle della statua della Pace, opera dello scultore Giovan Battista Comolli, su progetto di Valentino Presani. Il basamento con panoplia è opera di Mi … [Click Below for Full Description]

BARBEY D'AUREVILLY Jules
Paris: E. Dentu. First edition, of which there were no large paper copies. Near contemporary red half morocco over marbled paper boards by P. Ruban, spine in six compartments, raised bands bounded by black fillets, date gilt at foot of spine, marbled endpapers and pastedowns, covers preserved, top edge gilt. Attractive ex libris engraved by Provost-Blondel on pastedown, representing a helmet with a feather, medallion and a strip with the motto "Tojours en face." The ex libris belonged to Victor Coue, a 2nd Lieutenant killed in the First World War.This copy has two frontispieces: one lithograph heightened by Felicien Rops showing a caricature of Barbey d'Aurevilly with the caption "Il n'a pour page que son ombre. TS [his page is none other than his shadow]" and a portrait of the author engraved by Paul-Adolphe Rajon (1843-1888).This copy is further enriched with the eponymous series of engravings by Felicien Rops done between 1882 and 1886 with a view to a new edition by Alphonse Lemerre. The meeting of these two major works of literature and history of art from the end of the 19th century makes for an exceptional and unique copy, since - contrary to what is generally thought - Rops' prints never actually accompanied Barbey's text in a genuine illustrated edition. The series is composed of three frontispiece plates: La Femme et la folie dominant le monde I et II [Woman and Madness Ruling the World I and II], Le Sphinx [The Sphinx], and six others referring respectively to six of Barbey's short stories and figuring at the beginning of each: Le Rideau Cramoisi [The Cramoisi Cu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original light reddish-brown vertical fine-ribbed cloth, spine and front cover decorated and lettered in gilt, sides stamped in blind, yellow endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a bright red flat-back cloth box with the decorative title blocked to the spine and front board. 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 and red. Contemporary ownership signature of Ann Williams to half-title, 20th-century bookplate of Claire Mendel to pastedown. Spine lightly rolled, a few patches of faint foxing and finger-soiling to contents, else an excellent, bright copy. First edition, Smith's second issue, with the text uncorrected, yellow endpapers, red and blue title page, and "Stave One" as the first heading. A Christmas Carol was an instant success, reportedly selling all 6,000 copies of the first edition on the first day of publication, and Dickens went on to write four more small festive books for each successive Christmas (the final book, due in 1847, was postponed for a year and published in 1848). Of the five Christmas books, however, it is A Christmas Carol which has best stood the test of time. "It is rather as if Dickens had rewritten a religious tract and filled it both with his own memories and with all the concerns of the period. He had, in other words, created a modern fairy story. And so it has remained" (Peter Ackroyd, p. … [Click Below for Full Description]
