WYLD, James
London: James Wyld, 1844. unbound. Map. Engraving with original color outline. Image measures 20.5" x 25.5". This well designed map by James Wyld covers the entire continent of Asia from the Mediterranean Sea to New Guinea. Notes the political divisions circa 1840 with outline color and labels important cities, towns, rivers, islands, mountains, deserts, seas, lakes, and other topographical features. The Great Wall of China and the Grand Canal are both identified, so is the seat of the Mogul Empire of Genghis Khan at Karakarin. The disputed waters between Korea and Japan are here named in favor of Korea (Gulf of Corea). The map presents the region during "The Great Game", the political and diplomatic confrontation between Russia and the British Empire over the regions of Central and Southern Asia and Afghanistan in particular. The main concern for Russia was British inroads into Central Asia, while Britain feared Russia's threat to add India to its vast Empire. The result was the First Anglo-Afghan War on 1838 which Britain lost. The map is in good condition. James Wyld Senior (1790-1836) was a distinguished British mapmaker known for producing maps and globes. He served as Geographer to George IV and William IV. He was a founding member of the Royal Geographical Society and introduced lithography techniques to his production. His son James Wyld Junior ( 1812-1887) was the official geographer to Queen Victoria. This lovely map of is a fine example of his work.

WOMEN'S HISTORY & LITERATURE - RELIGION] [WILKINSON, Jemima]
R. L. Underwood & Co, 1844. [Second Edition]. Account of the life of Jemima Wilkinson (1752-1819), the Rhode Island-born Quaker and Evangelist who claimed after a long illness to have died and been risen from the dead. Through her preaching she became known as the "Universal Friend," creating a Shaker-like sect that practiced celibacy and poverty on a massive property she named "Jerusalem." Some have argued that Wilkinson was an imposter who accrued vast wealth from her followers (Howes describes her as "the first religious charlatan of her sex in America"). Indeed, the sect would not survive after her death. This work, first published in 1821, attributed to David Hudson (SABIN 33485 and HOWES H-761). See also "Appleton's Cyclopaedia of American Biography," Vol. 6, p. 512. 18mo (15.5cm.); publisher's full sheep, red gilt morocco spine label; viii,[9]-288pp.; portrait frontispiece.

DICKENS, Charles
London: Chapman and Hall, 1844. Octavo (207 x 128 mm). Recent red morocco by Bayntun, spine lettered in gilt and gilt to compartments, gilt portrait of Dickens within roundel to front cover, gilt facsimile signature to rear cover, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Half-title present. Binding in fine condition; discreet repairs to short closed tears to frontispiece and a few other plates, a couple of plates trimmed around margins, plates and contents a little toned as usual. Overall a very good copy. Engraved frontispiece, vignette title page (£ sign transposed, no priority of issue), and 38 engraved plates by H. K. Browne. 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). Dickens wrote to a contemporary that "I think Chuzzlewit is a hundred points immeasurably the best of my stories" (cited in Berard, Dickens and Landscape Discourse, p. 3).

Publisher's catalogue inserted at the front of the first volume is dated January 1, 1846, but "bears no relation to the priority of the printing." Barnes A5. 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."

ANDERSEN, HANS CHRISTIAN
Copenhagen: Reitzel, 1844-45. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (i.e. title dated 1844 and without indication of later parts or a general title page). A landmark of world literature, this collection contains the first printings of the works that brought Andersen international fame, including The Ugly Duckling and The Snow Queen. For this series of Nye Eventyr (New Fairy Tales), the author indicated his seriousness of purpose by dropping his sub-title Fortalte for Børn (Told for Children) used in his previous collection these were to be tales for all. Andersen s breakthrough work, Nye Eventyr was published to universal acclaim. It was not until 1843/4 that the appearance of The Ugly Duckling swept them [Andersen s fairy tales] into general favour (Printing and the Mind of Man 299). All four stories [in the first part] are original and owe no debt to folk tale or myth . . . These were the most mature and perfectly constructed tales he had written, and though some of them at once became and have remained favourites of children, Andersen here melds the childlike and the profound with exceptional artistry (Wullschlager, Hans Christian Andersen, p. 231). The 850 copies of the first part were published on November 10, 1843, with the customary holiday post-dating of the title-page to 1844. The first installment contains The Ugly Duckling, The Nightingale, The Top and the Ball, and The Angel. The second installment (December 1844, dated 1845) contains The Snow Queen and The Fir Tree. A third installment appeared in April 1845. Andersen s legacy as a creator of fairy tales is unparalleled. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Completo delle ultime pagine di Appendice e di Indice generale. Bell'esemplare, a pieni margini. Rara raccolta dei fascicoli di testo. Opera monumentale sulla storia e iconografia di tutte le parrocchie della Diocesi bolognese esistenti all'epoca, ritratte dal vero dall'autore. I testi, ripresi da fonti autorevoli come quelle di illustri storici contemporanei oppure da notizie di prima mano degli stessi parroci. Le tavole sono precisissime dal punto di vista architettonico anche se spesso ingenue nei paesaggi e nella animazione dei personaggi; di grande interesse molte delle vedute generali di paesi della montagna e della pianura bolognese, in alcuni casi le uniche del tempo. Gli editori, probabilmente sommersi dalla mole di lavoro e scoraggiati dal mancato riscontro commerciale non sempre reincisero le tavole che si rendevano inservibili con l'uso (in alcuni casi lo fecero, anche con variazione di particolari della veduta) e in fine si trovarono costretti a vendere in blocco il fondo dei fascicoli incompleti. Il Corty, come riferisce il Lozzi, (n. 492) finì assai male i suoi giorni, condannato per aver falsificato carta moneta. … [Click Below for Full Description]

RODRIGUEZ, Eugenio.
Naples: Caro Batelli e Comp., 1844. Small 4to, modern half calf gilt with marbled boards and endpapers; half-title, lithographic frontispiece portrait, title with vignette; pp. 106, folding lithographic prospect and map. A rare publication, an account of a voyage to Brazil in 1843 to deliver Princess Tereza Cristina of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies to her husband Dom Pedro II. The pair had yet to meet: they had wed by proxy, with the bride still in Naples. Written by Eugenio Rodriguez, a Sicilian naval officer, the text describes the area as a tourist but also includes a socio-economic commentary. The detailed view, 'Veduta della citta di São Sebastiano di Rio de Janeiro dallÂ’Isola das Cobras', was lithographed by Frederico Gatti and Gaetano Dura after sketches by Baron Karl Robert von Planitz; the chart of the bay was drawn by Rodriguez from English sources.

DUFLOT DE MOFRAS, Eugene.
Paris: Arthus Bertrand, 1844. 2 octavo text volumes in original printed blue wrappers, untrimmed and vol. II largely unopened, with folio atlas in contemporary black hard-grain half morocco, dark purple morocco-grain cloth sides, black morocco label lettered in gilt on front cover. Text volumes in individual dark blue morocco folding cases. Spines of text volumes skilfully restored, some foxing internally, one plate in atlas toned, overall a very good set. Frontispieces and 6 plates in text volumes; atlas with large folding map hand-coloured in outline, 25 engravings on 17 sheets (one double-page), comprising 21 charts and 4 plates. Rare first edition of "one of the most important works on the Northwestern Coast, including Alaska" (Lada-Mocarski), also considered the best book on California for this period. Duflot de Mofras had been sent to Mexico in 1839 ostensibly to act as French ambassador. His real motive was to provide the French government with information about the Pacific coast of North America to help decide whether or not to become embroiled in the conflict over Oregon between the United States and Britain. His description includes the western coast of America from Tehuantepec to the Bering Strait, and considers the Spanish voyages of discovery, Vancouver Island, and the Fraser River. Howes notes that it "forms an admirable supplement to Humboldt's account of the same region and is the only early illustrated work on the Pacific coast comparable in beauty to the 'Voyage pittoresque' of Choris or to Litké's account of the Russian survey of the northwest coast."

CATHERWOOD, Frederick (1799-1854)
London: F. Catherwood, 1844. Hand coloured tinted lithograph, after Catherwood, trimmed to the image as issued. Image size: 10 7/8 x 15 inches. Removed from the original card mount. A fine image from the extraordinarily rare hand-coloured issue of this highly important work: "In the whole range of literature on the Maya there has never appeared a more magnificent work" (Von Hagen). Until the publication of the work of Alfred Maudsley at the turn of the century, Catherwood's Views was the greatest record of Mayan iconography and a primary visual record of the rediscovery of Mayan civilization. Views was produced in London, although issued with both London and New York title pages. Catherwood recruited some of the most distinguished lithographers in London to translate his originals onto stone: Andrew Picken, Henry Warren, William Parrott, John C. Bourne, Thomas Shotter Boys, and George Belton Moore. Frederick Catherwood was a British architect and artist with a strong interest in archaeology. These combined talents led him to accompany the American traveller and explorer, John Lloyd Stephens, on two trips to the Mayan region of southern Mexico in 1839 and 1841. These explorations resulted in Stephens' two famous works, Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan and Incidents of Travel in Yucatan . These immensely popular works, foundation stones in Mayan studies, were both illustrated by Catherwood and inspired him to undertake the larger portfolio. The work of Stephens and Catherwood received great praise. Of Catherwood, Huxley writes: "Ca … [Click Below for Full Description]
