        The Life and Adventures of MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT

      1844. .. With Illustrations by Phiz. London: Chapman and Hall, 1844. Original blind-stamped blue cloth. First Edition in book form, published immediately at the conclusion of the 20-in-19 monthly serial parts (issued from January 1843 through July 1844). Included are the forty plates by Hablot K. Browne ("Phiz"), two of which had appeared in each part. CHUZZLEWIT was the first of Dickens's novels to lose readers during serialization; when the publisher Hall accordingly suggested Dickens's fees should be reduced (though it never happened), it created a rift that was not bridged until Chapman and Hall published A TALE OF TWO CITIES in 1859.~This copy is in the primary cloth binding for MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT, blue horizontally-ribbed blind-stamped cloth. The errata leaf is in the usual 14-line state; the vignette title page has "100L" printed thus and has seven studs along the top edge of the trunk (Smith's state "1" -- one of three states, without precedence).~The volume's condition is very good-plus -- unusually attractive externally, with just some subtle soil. The volume is deftly re-cased, but without any newer cloth being added and preserving the original (albeit cracked) pale-yellow endpapers. The "Phiz" plates exhibit some browning and/or foxing in the margins, but there is very little on the images themselves. That said, there is scarcely any of the typical shelf-wear, and the spine gilt remains quite bright -- clearly a better-looking copy than most. All of the thick octavo-format Dickens novels (the others being PICKWICK PAPERS, NICHOLAS NICKLEBY, DOMBEY AND SON, DAVID COPPERFIELD, BLEAK HOUSE and LITTLE DORRIT) are difficult to obtain in presentable original condition, as the bulk of text was too heavy for the simple cloth bindings; however in our experience MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT (incidentally the only one of the seven to be bound in blue rather than olive-green cloth) is one of the toughest. Housed in a cloth clamshell case. Smith I pp 63-67.

        Extraits des auteurs et voyageurs qui ont ecrit sur la guyane

      Paris: Imprimerie de Bethune and Plon, 1844 xcii+616 pages. Octavo (8 1/2" x 5 1/2") bound in contemporary three quarter calf with black spine label and gilt lettering. Publications de la Societe d'Etudes pour la colonisation de la Guyane francaise, Number 4. The bibliographical catalogue occupies pages 579-616, and contains descriptions of 240 works on Guiana. Sabin 56097. First edition.French Guiana (French: Guyane française, officially Guyane) is an overseas department (French: département d'outre-mer, or DOM) of France, located on the northern coast of South America. It has borders with two nations, Brazil and Suriname. Like the other DOMs, French Guiana is also an overseas region of France, one of the 26 regions of France. Its currency is the euro. The prefecture is Cayenne. The addition of the adjective "French" comes from colonial times when three such colonies existed: British Guiana (now Guyana), Dutch Guiana (now Suriname) and French Guiana. The three are still often collectively referred to as the Guianas. French Guiana was originally inhabited by a number of indigenous American people. It was settled by the French during the 17th century. After the Treaty of Paris in 1763, Louis XV sent 12,000 settlers to French Guiana to colonise the region. One and a half years later only a few hundred survived.[2] Its infamous Île du Diable (Devil's Island) was the site of penal settlements from 1852 until 1951. More than 70,000 French convicts were deported to French Guiana between 1852 and 1939.[3] In 1809 a Portuguese-British naval squadron took French Guiana for the Portuguese Empire. With the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1814 the region was handed back to the French, though a Portuguese presence remained until 1817. A border dispute with Brazil arose in the late nineteenth century over a vast area of jungle, leading to the short-lived pro-French independent state of Counani in the disputed territory and some fighting between settlers, before the dispute was resolved largely in favor of Brazil by the arbitration of the Swiss government. In 1946, French Guiana became an overseas department of France.Condition:Front inner hinge separated, rubbing to hinges and corners else a very good copy.

        A CHRISTMAS CAROL

      1844. In Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1844. Preliminary ad leaf dated July 1844. Original cream printed wrappers. First American Edition. There has long been an open question as to whether Harper's edition or Carey & Hart's edition came out first in America. Carey & Hart's is certainly the lovelier of the two -- bound in cloth decorated in gilt, with almost-exact facsimiles of the English edition's illustrations (some in color). Walter Smith's upcoming bibliography of Dickens's American editions will assert that this Harper edition is the earlier -- and it stands to reason that Harper's, poorly printed in double columns, unillustrated, and sewn into cheap wrappers, was able to beat the finely-produced illustrated Carey & Hart production onto the streets.~This copy has the ad leaf preceding the title leaf, and the Preface on the verso of the title page, which Podeschi says indicates the second state (in the first, the title and the Preface are on separate leaves with blank versos, and there is no ad leaf); the ad leaf is dated "July, 1844" and does mention this title (-- for sale at 6-1/4 cents -- though the front wrapper says 6 cents even). Also, the inside rear cover is dated "August, 1844," and the front inside cover and rear cover are dated "October, 1844." In our experience, almost all copies that occasionally come onto the market are in this "second state."~Condition is very good-plus, with a few nicks (but scarcely any loss) in the edge of the wrappers, plus a few small faint stains and an early owner's name stamped onto the front wrapper. Though not a fine copy, it is the best of the four copies we have been able to offer over the course of our 35 years in business. Podeschi (Yale) A81 #3 (with blue wrapper); not in Carr (the VanderPoel collection at Texas). Housed in a (slightly worn) morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

        Ancient National Airs of Gwent and Morganwg; being a collection of Original Welsh Airs,

      Llandovery. Soho Square. London.: William Rees. D'Almaine and Mackinlay In contemporary embossed cloth, corners and edges a little bumped and worn, some repairs, gilt title and harp to upper board. New brown cloth spine, printed titles to paper label. Internally, yellow endpapers, stamped Llandaff address to fep, stamped name (EL Williams - Seren Cymru) to to and dedication leaf, [5], 6-86 pp, printed by W Rees, Llandovery, not dated but 1844 per BL. Includes a 2 page subscribers list. Williams, (Maria) Jane, singer and compiler of traditional Welsh music competed at Abergavenny, but there are conflicting accounts of her victories. She probably won in 1838 for an arrangement of a Welsh air for four voices, and a year earlier for the best collection of unpublished Welsh music. This was to be published as Ancient Airs of Gwent and Morgannwg (1844), the collection of folk-songs for which she is best remembered. She was considered an authority by her contemporaries and was consulted by them on matters pertaining to folk-songs, but her authority has been challenged by modern scholars. See ODNB.

        A CHRISTMAS CAROL

      1844. In Prose. Being A Ghost Story of Christmas. With Illustrations by John Leech. Philadelphia: Carey & Hart, 1844. Original blind-stamped rose-brown cloth with gilt-decorated spine. Early American edition of Dickens's classic tale about Ebenezer Scrooge. Carey & Hart issued this as a reproduction of Dickens's personally-supervised London edition: the gilt spine decoration is the same, the title page is in red and blue, and the Leech illustrations are faithfully reproduced (four in color, as in the London edition).~Though this is frequently referred to as the first American edition, Harper's 1844 edition undoubtedly preceded it onto the streets (something that will soon be confirmed in Walter Smith's bibliography): the Harper edition was produced quickly and cheaply, with no illustrations and bound just in wrappers -- in other words, they were going for speed, not quality.~In this copy, the plate "Mr. Fezziwig's Ball" serves as frontispiece; in some copies, "Marley's Ghost" does -- no priority. It is in rose-brown cloth; Podeschi cites copies in blue or in purple, but not in this color.~This is a very good-plus copy (spine slightly tanned as always with this color cloth, very light wear at the spine ends, early penned name on the front flyleaf). The binding is quite clean, the only noteworthy foxing is on the (original) endpapers, and the color plates remain remarkably bright. The first English edition consisted of 6,000 copies; though it is unknown how many copies of Carey & Hart's American edition were printed, we easily see 20 English copies for every Carey & Hart copy -- which if true would indicate an American edition of only 500 copies. Podeschi (Yale) A80 (six copies, various colors of cloth and placement of frontispiece; Yale has 24 first issue English copies); Carr (UTexas) B362; Wilkins p. 38.

      Moon, F.G., London 1844 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.
