William Beattie
London: Virtue, 1844. good condition. Rare and Unique Hand Coloured in Exquisite Style The Danube: Its History, Scenery, and Topography. London: George Virtue, published 1844 (BARTLETT, William Henry) BEATTIE, William. Quarto, contemporary half morocco half marbled binding all edges gilt. First edition in book form of this handcoloured illustrated description of the Danube River region, one of the most popular of the Bartlett-Beattie collaborations, with vignette title page, frontispiece portrait, two maps, 80 lovely full-page steel engravings, and in-text wood-engravings by Bartlett. William Beattie wrote "a series of descriptive and historical works, beautifully illustrated by his friend and fellow traveler, the well-known William Henry Bartlett" (DNB)-- including this tour along the Danube. Bartlett was instrumental in satisfying the current public demand for panoramic views of foreign places. From the beginning of his career, he was encouraged to take artistic journeys, first throughout the British Isles, then on the Continent, and eventually to the Middle East, Asia Minor, the United States and Canada. Concerned with rendering "lively impressions of actual sights," Bartlett became recognized as one of the foremost landscape illustrators. "He could select his point of view so as to bring prominently into his sketch the castle or the cathedral, which history or antiquity had allowed" (Nathaniel Parker Willis). First issued in 20 parts to subscribers beginning in 1840. [Attributes: First Edition]

[Anon.]
[New England? ca. 1844]. Double-sided Drawing. 12½ x 15⅜ inches. Ink on paper with some gray wash, a small part accomplished in blue ink; text on both sides. Sheet folded vertically in the middle, presenting an intricate, symmetrically arranged and precisely drawn combination of geometric patterns, drawings of chains, and manicules and with numerous handwritten biblical names and references and other writings. Some foxing; sheet closely trimmed at edges with no apparent loss of illustrations or text; very good. Extraordinary, complex American millenarian spiritual folk art drawing embodying the Adventist religious beliefs of William Miller (1782-1849) and his followers and illustrating the claim of a future age to begin on March 22, 1844. The Anonymous artist, probably an adherent of the Adventist preacher William Miller, depicts a symbolical simultaneous vision of past salvation history and the future life. Here there are references to Biblical verses of prophecy and future apocalypse. Here there are sacred numbers such as "44" and references to various Christian churches including the Shakers-an adventist sect formally known as the United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing. Here there are drawings of mystical chains-chains linking the past to a future revelation, drawings of the sun and the moon, and drawings of manicules or disembodied hands pointing at key design elements. Millerite theology taught that the Second Coming or Advent of Christ aligned with a Biblical prophecy about the re-building of the Temple in Jerusalem. Aditionally, they belived … [Click Below for Full Description]

Elizabeth Barrett Browning's (1806-1861) two-volume Poems gained her international fame and prompted her courtship with Robert Browning whom she later married, noting during their courtship that she would remain 'EBB' as she was when Poems was published. Her literary reputation would eventually surpass her poet husband, and inspire other famous female poets such as Emily Dickinson who kept a framed portrait of EBB in her room, and Virginia Woolf who attempted to regenerate enthusiasm for EBB in the 1930s. Poems includes some of EBB's most beloved works, including the politically toned "Cry for the Children," and the favorite among sentimental readers, "Lady Geraldine's Courtship: A Romance of the Age."

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.

FORSTER, Johann Reinhold.
Berlin: Ex Officina Academica, 1844. Octavo. Uncut and unopened in the original boards, spine and front cover lettered in black. Very light soiling and very minor peripheral wear to boards, contents clean; a superb, well-preserved example. First edition of Forster's study of the Australasian fauna encountered on Cook's second voyage. A distinguished naturalist, Forster (1729-1798) was employed as Chief Naturalist for the Resolution on Cook's second voyage, accompanied by his son Georg (1754-1794) as an assistant; "the elder Forster proved to be a highly capable scientist and a keen observer - his works proved him a veritable genius in many disciplines - but he had a disagreeable personality and alienated the expedition's staff" (Rosove). His account of the fauna of Australasia - listing 305 animal species - follows the Linnaean system with its binary nomenclature. The seven-decade delay in publishing the work impeded its immediate scientific influence: "The work was finished in outline as early as August 1775, only 3 weeks after return from the voyage. However, Forster continued to work on the manuscript while in London until 1780. It was in fact ready for publication but feuds and debts again intervened. In 1787, the Göttingen publisher C. Dietrich was willing to publish it and a manuscript of 458 pages was available. Forster wanted engravings to accompany the Latin text, Dietrich wanted a German text. No compromise could be reached. The manuscript later passed to the Royal Library in Berlin in 1799. The manuscript was published as late as 1844 edited by Martin Hinrich Kar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: Arthus Bertrand, 1844. Two octavo text volumes: xii,[4],524; [4],514pp., plus eight engraved plates. Handsome 19th-century full red morocco, spines gilt, boards ruled in gilt with gilt coat of arms composed of a five-pointed crown over crossed batons on front boards, a.e.g., gilt inner dentelles, silk endpapers. Minor shelf wear, lower rear corner of both volumes bumped. Occasional foxing and spotting to text. Very good. First edition of the text volumes of this important work on the Pacific Northwest. Duflot de Mofras was sent by the French government to Mexico City in 1839, as an attaché charged with investigating the commercial possibilities of the northwest provinces of Mexico and the British, American, and Russian establishments further north. In execution of these orders, he journeyed up the Pacific Coast to the Bering Straits and back. He spent five months in Monterey en route, and closely observed all he encountered in California, Oregon, and Alaska, and even examines Hawaii as an extension of California. The result was this work, generally considered the best book on California prior to the American occupation, and an important account of Oregon and the Northwest Coast. Cowan says it is superior to any work on the subject in the 1840s, while Wagner cites it as one of the twenty rarest and most important works on California. Sabin calls it a "very fine work." The plates depict various scenes in California, including Monterey Bay, Franciscan missionary Narciso Duran giving fruit to a young girl, a scene of rancheros roping cattle, and a Russian mission … [Click Below for Full Description]
