KANGAROO] COLE, Henry
London: Joseph Cundall, 1844. First Edition. Berghem, Durer, Everdingen, Hondius, A. Karl du Jardin, Le Ducq, Paul Potter, Fraser Redgrave, Rembrandt, Stoop, Tempesta, Teniers, Vandervelde. First edition, uncommon. An attractive illustrated alphabet, with a charming image of a Kangaroo. Among the other plates are etchings after Rembrandt and Albrecht Durer. [Percy Muir, English Children's Books, p. 180.] Handsome chapter initials decorate the accompanying text which is enchantingly written. 'Fox. Look at this cunning, cruel fellow, making ready to spring among the chickens... But he will be punished tomorrow I think, for I heard uncle Tom order his red coat to be ready for hunting...' The Kangaroo entry remains the highlight, 'The Kangaroo is brought from New Holland: we have some in England in the Zoological Gardens. Their Nature is not at all savage.' Henry Cole, who published this and other children's books under the pseudonym F.S. (Felix Summerly), was a notable figure of nineteenth-century England. A distinguished civil servant and associate of John Stuart Mill, he was eventually knighted and is credited with producing the first commercial Christmas card. The Home Treasury series, to which the Alphabet belongs, was edited by Cole and aimed to improve upon the standard of children's books. Small square octavo, bound in the original blind-stamped green cloth, lettered in gilt, frontispiece and 24 sepia plates, all edges gilt, a little sunned especially to spine, near fine.

1844. GENERAL SMITH'S VIEWS OF THE POWERS AND POLICY OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES NAUVOO, ILLINOIS. PRINTED BY JOHN TAYLOR. 1844 Pamphlet! Very Scarce (1) Leaf from 1844! Excerpt below: Born in a land of liberty, and breathing an air uncorrupted with the sirocco of barbarous climes, I ever feel a double anxiety for the happiness of all men, both in time and in eternity. My cogitations, like Daniel's, have for a long time troubled me, when I viewed the condition of men throughout the world, and more especially in this boasted realm, where the Declaration of Independence "holds these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness," but at the same time some two or three millions of people are held as slaves for life, because the spirit in them is covered with a darker skin than ours; and hundreds of our kindred for an infraction, or supposed infraction, of some over wise statute, have to be incarcerated in dungeon glooms, or suffer the more moral penitentiary gravitation of mercy in a nut-shell, while the duelist, the debauchee, and the defaulter for millions, and other criminals, take the upper-most rooms at feasts, or, like the bird of passage find a more congenial clime by flight. Acceptable Condition for age. Cover shows wear and marks with chipping corners and creased corners with pieces torn off and some foxing from age from use. Notes and markings on reading pages that I saw with some chipping around edges and some o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Crockett, Davy]
Nashville, Boston, and New York, 1844. Eight issues. Individual details and paginations provided below. All with original illustrated wrappers. Condition details provided below. In a cloth chemise and half morocco and cloth clamshell box, spine gilt. An impressive collection of eight of the celebrated series of ALMANACS that helped make Davy Crockett an American folk hero. The ALMANACS ran from 1835 to 1856 and although none were written by the actual David Crockett, he certainly participated in the creation of the mythical Davy, and subsequently in the creation of a large part of the myth and folklore of the frontier and the American West. Crockett's A NARRATIVE OF THE LIFE OF DAVID CROCKETT OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE (co- authored or possibly ghostwritten by Thomas Chilton) appeared in 1834, and was seen as a "campaign biography": more or less historically accurate, but amply enhanced with promotional rhetoric and early examples of what is now recognized as the classic humor of the West and Southwest. But "it was the Crockett ALMANACS which made Crockett a legendary figure and a part of American folk- lore.Constance Rourke, Crockett's biographer, observes that the legendary Crockett stories 'constitute one of the earliest and perhaps the largest of our cycles of myth, and they are part of a lineage that endures to this day, in Kentucky, Tennessee and the Ozark Mountains'" - GROLIER AMERICAN HUNDRED. The issues included are as follows: 1) [Davy Crockett]: "GO AHEAD!"

HUNT, Robert (1807-1887)
London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1844. [Science] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (23 x 15cm), pp.viii; 303; [32], catalogue dated April 1844. With folding chart as frontispiece, highlighted in colour, errata slip on p.v. Publisher's blind-stamped brown cloth, titled in gilt to spine, coated yellow endpapers, edges untrimmed. Light and occasional marking, marginal tear to first leaf of text, binding expertly repaired to spine. Shows well. Robert Hunt, F.R.S., was Secretary to the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society. His earliest contributions to science concerned photography-a subject to which he applied himself with assiduity immediately on the announcement of Daguerre's discovery in 1839. Hunt's investigations led to the discovery of several new processes, which were either described in the Philosophical Magazine or announced to the British Association. His experimental researches on the chemical activity of the highly refrangible rays of the solar spectrum, his work with the actinograph, and his study of the influence of light upon the germination of seeds and the growth of plants, formed the subject of numerous papers between 1840 and 1854. Mr. Hunt's "Researches on Light" appeared in 1844. His "Manual of Photography," which was the first general work on the subject published in this country, passed through six editions (at the time of his death) [From Nature, 3/11/1887].

England: 1844. Offered here is a collection of three books related to the Tudor Warship Mary Rose: 1. The Narrative of the Loss of the Mary Rose at Spithead, July 20 1545, From Original Manuscript - Relic of the Mary Rose, published in 1844, by Samuel Horsey, Portsea, is a ninety six page narrative of the loss of the Mary Rose. The leather spine is inscribed "Relic of the Mary Rose" with the wooden covers made from actual wood from the Mary Rose. 3.6 x 2.1 inches. The last engagement of the Mary Rose was in the Solent against a French invasion fleet in July 1545. With Henry VIII watching from Southsea Castle on the mainland, she sank with the loss of almost 500 men. The wreck lay undiscovered for nearly 300 years until its accidental discovery by fishermen in 1836. At this time pioneer divers John and Charles Deane explored the wreck and recovered relics from the ship. A history of the ship's demise was first published by Samuel Horsey in 1842. The inside front page carries an original label reading: "The Wood from which the Covers of this Book are made, was purchased Nov. 12th, 1840, at Mr. Dean's Public Sale of Articles recovered by him from the Mary Rose. A certificate of which may be seen on application to the Publisher. The Public may confide on its being a Genuine Relic of that unfortunate Ship". 2. Two different modern publications from the Historical Diving Society presenting reproductions of the content of the above-described original 1844 book.

Listing note: First edition. Dickens's biographer places Martin Chuzzlewit as marking "a great change in Dickens's conception of moral characteristics. For the first time Dickens begins to explore the contradictions and difficulties of the contemporary human world; these are no longer figures defined by a single characteristic or animated by the wilful principle of a 'humour', but ones who are seen to change with the changing world, to live and grow" (Ackroyd, Dickens, p. 392).

Lowell, James Russell
published by John Owenj, Cambridge, 1844. First edition, large 8vo, (page height 9 5/16"), pp. [iii]-xii, 279, [1]; contemporary full black morocco, tooled panels on both covers, elaborate tooling on spine, lettered direct, a.e.g., marbled endpapers, the binder's ticket of Macdonald of Cambridge; once gilt-tooled, the gilt is tarnished, oxidized, and essentially perished, but traces still visible; the whole slightly rubbed; very good and sound. This copy with a faint contemporary pencil inscription: "Miss Mary J. Chadwick from G. H. T." This copy is more than two inches taller than the regular edition, but nearly an inch shorter than the large paper copies in its original binding of brown paper-covered boards as described by BAL. This is likely a L.P. copy in a special binding by Macdonald, and trimmed accordingly. BAL 13045; Howe Library VIII, JRL 22: "This one of a very few copies of the large paper edition. Wakeman thought that Owen, the publisher, made up a few copies for presentation to his own friends." Wakeman Sale, lot 811: "Excessively rare . Only five copies are known to me and all (except the Foote copy which was rebound in full leather) are bound in half leather and have initials or names erased from the back of the binding. I must therefore conclude that Owen printed a few copies on large paper and had them bound as above for presentation to his own friends. In support of this, Lowell was at the time too poor to indulge in anything elaborate in bindings, and furthermore there is a copy of these poems in this collection which he gave to F. C. Briggs, who after W … [Click Below for Full Description]

Green, Beriah
Jackson & Chaplin, Utica, 1844. 119, [1 blank] pp. Disbound. Title page and final leaf with some foxing, else a clean text. Good+. This is the first edition of Green's campaign biography of Birney, a pivotal figure in the political history of the abolition movement. A Kentuckian, Binney started out as a planter, became a full-fledged abolitionist by the early 1830's, and freed his slaves. He rose to prominence in the American Anti-Slavery Society. A founder of the Liberty Party in 1840, he was its presidential candidate then and in 1844, when he helped defeat Henry Clay, the Whig candidate, by taking the votes of northern Whigs dissatisfied with the Party's tepid stance on slavery and the Texas annexation. Green, himself a vigorous anti-slavery reformer, was well-suited to sing Birney's praises. His book "contains many extracts from Birney's writings," including "virtually the whole of the letter of acceptance in 1843, dissecting the claims of John Quincy Adams to the support of abolitionists" [DAB].

Day & Haghe, London & Northern Ireland. A 7 line SIGNED letter by "Gen'l Tom Thumb" dated Dec 1st 1844. Sent from Glasgow to the postmaster in Chester requesting mail be sent to Belfast. The letter on a slightly larger than A5 sheet has been laid onto album paper of a grey blue of larger dimensions (folio), on the reverse are 6 copper plate engravings of historical figures. The letter and autograph are on 19th century thinner paper and is bright and fresh due to having been inside an album and is Very Good+. Then with this is a GENUINE 1844 stone lithograph of General Tom Thumb by Baugniet engraved by the Queen's printers Day & Haghe. Details of his size & weight and age 25 inches, 15 pounds, "he's smaller than any infant that ever walked alone". this engraving also backed onto album paper, the glue used at edges shows a little, the print has some other ingrained age marks mainly at the top edge in the white. Measures 15 x 11 inches (38 x 28 cm approx). Would frame without most of the marked areas being seen, which is why we choose to sell as is for reasons of personal taste and not paying for framing if needed to be posted overseas from the UK. This album came to us from a Chester family recently selling items from their own past, there are other Chester related items, the fact the "autographed" note is to the Chester postmaster makes sense that this resided in the album devoid of any other related material. the two pieces are separate and could be framed together, they were once facing each other but like this impractical to view or display and nothing else in the album w … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Thayer and Co.]
Boston: B.W. Thayer & Co. [c.1844]. Broadside. Approx. 20¾ x 16 inches. Conserved and mended (treatment report available). Rare broadside advertising this African-American albino quartet, shown performing in a minstrel array, playing the bones, the fiddle, the banjo and the tambourine. The quartet was one of the earliest such traveling attractions in America, though years later P.T. Barnum would make the exhibition of Black albino families, both real and fake, a standard item on the American sideshow bill-of-fare. The broadside illustrates the "tradition" of African-Americans being presented to the American public simultaneously as performers and peculiarities. (A similar example being the conjoined twins Millie-Christine, the singers known as "The Two-Head Nightingale.") Harriet A. Washington in Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentations on Black Americans... (2008) notes: "as was usual with such 'white negro' attractions [the] subjects were not of mixed race but anomalies born of black parents." Charles D. Martin in The White African American Body... (2002) speaks further to the boys' representation as "medical curiosities." There are three endorsements from Nathaniel B. Shurtlieff, M.D., S.I. Abbot, and Dr. J.V.C. Smith. The endorsements emphasize the fact that the boys are of "true negro parentage and [possess] in an eminent degree all the characteristics of the Leucoethiopes (white negroes), viz: a pearly white skin, white hair, and pink pupils of the eyes, together with all the features of full-blooded negroes...not to be mistaken for or confou … [Click Below for Full Description]
