        Poems. Presentation Copy (contains A Visit From St. Nicholas)

      New York: Bartlett & Wellford, 1844. First Edition. Very good+ with a professional repaired backstrip and strengthened joints and hinges leaving intact the 1/2 leather (calf) and the patterned purple cloth covered boards. The gilt text of the title remains on the spine. A 12mo measuring 7 1/4" by 4 1/2" with the prior owner's name: "S. Victor Constant | New York" stamped on the front paste down. A presentation copy inscribed "To Miss Southey | with the respects | of the author. | June, 1844." On the verso side of the half title page, the author has also added a line of correction for page 58. 216 pages being a collection of 37 poems, the most important being A Visit From St. Nicholas. This is the first appearance of this now famous and beloved poem "in a collection of Moore's own verse, and thus his first public acknowledgment of authorship." (Marshall, The Night Before Christmas A Descriptive Bibliography of Clement Clarke Moore's Immortal Poem, p. 10) The poem first appeared in The Troy Sentinel on December 23, 1823 anonymously. (BAL, 14348) As stated in Marshall's bibliography regarding this title: "This is considered by many scholars to be the definitive version." One's imagination is provoked with the possible connection between the author's last poem titled: "Southey" which is an ode to his deceased wife, and the name of the person who was presented with this book: "Miss Southey".

        The Spoon; with Upwards of One Hundred Illustrations, Primitive, Egyptian, Roman, Mediaeval, And Modern. [At head of title:] Transactions of the Society of Literary & Scientific Chiffonniers; being essays on primitive arts in domestic life ... By Hab'k O. Westman

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1844. First edition. Title vignette, tailpiece, and 8 lithographed plates illustrating over 100 spoons. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary half green morocco and marbled boards and endpapers. Some scuffing to extremities, mild scattered (mostly marginal) spotting, but overall a solid, attractive copy. Bookplate of B. Pomeroy on front pastedown, and his name stamped in gilt at foot of spine. First edition. Title vignette, tailpiece, and 8 lithographed plates illustrating over 100 spoons. 1 vols. 8vo. A curious and delightful by one of 19th-century technological visionaries. The inventor and ethnologist Ewbank (1792-1870) emigrated to New York from England in 1819. "In 1820 he began the manufacture of metallic tubing in New York, and retired in 1836 to devote himself to literary and scientific pursuits. From 1849 till 1852 he was U. S. commissioner of patents ... He was one of the founders of the American ethnological society. He published 'Descriptive and Historical Account of Hydraulic and other Machines, Ancient and Modern' (New York, 1842; 15th ed., with additions, 1863); 'The World a Workshop, or the Physical Relation of Man to the Earth' (1855); 'Life in Brazil,' describing a visit to that country in 1845-6, with an appendix on a collection of American antiquities (1857); 'Thoughts on Matter and Force' (1858); 'Reminiscences in the Patent Office' (1859); and a variety of miscellaneous essays on the philosophy and history of inventions, which appeared chiefly in the 'Transactions of the Franklin Institute.' His 'Experiments on Marine Propulsion, or the Virtue of Form in Propelling Blades,' was reprinted in Europe. In 1860 he published an essay that he had read before the Ethnological society, entitled 'Inorganic Forces Ordained to Supersede Human Slavery.'"(Appleton's Cyclopedia) The attribution to Ewbank is based on the Library of Congress deposit copy, which bears the annotation, "By Thomas Ewbank". The "Society of Literary & Scientific Chiffonniers" is fictitious.

        Un Autre Monde

      1844. GRANDVILLE, J.-J. Un Autre Monde. Transformations, visions, incarnations... et autres choses. By Taxile Delord. [4], 295, [1] pp. Half-title and title-page printed in red. Illustrated with 133 woodcut vignettes, 15 full-page woodcuts, and 36 hand-coloured plates. Large 8vo., 268 x 196 mm, bound in contemporary half morocco. Paris: H. Fournier, 1844. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of Grandville's masterpiece. One of the spectacular, surreal illustrated books of the nineteenth century. "In this remarkable book, of the boldest possible originality, Grandville dared to reveal his dream world to the public" (Ray). The illustrations expose an imagination which was unlike anything that appeared in print before. Ray points out that the designs of Grandville certainly influenced Tenniel when he created the characters for Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. In this copy the hand-coloured plates, which have been carefully and well coloured, have captions in white letter as per Rebeyrat, except for that of the "Concert a la Vapeur", "Bal Masqué" and "Apocalypse due Ballet", which are in black letter. The text has some minor foxing throughout, but overall a pleasing copy in a contemporary binding, which is now hard to find thus. Carteret III, 285 (with reproduction). Ray, French 196 (with reproduction). Rebeyrat, Catalogue bibliographique et bibliophilique in: J.-J. Grandville, p. 287. Sello, Grandville: Das Gesamt Werk 1167-1351.

        RESEARCHES ON LIGHT: AN EXAMINATION OF ALL THE PHENOMENA CONNECTED WITH THE CHEMICAL AND MOLECULAR CHANGES PRODUCED BY THE INFLUENCE OF THE SOLAR RAYS; EMBRACING ALL THE KNOWN PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESSES, AND NEW DISCOVERIES IN THE ART

      Printed for Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, London 1844 - 8vo., vii, 303 pp., 32 pp. adverts, hand-colored engraved folding frontispiece, text diagrams. Recased in the decoratively blind-stamped publisher's original cloth. The lower edge of the binding is rubbed, with moderate wear at the tips. A very good copy. "Robert Hunt (1807 - 1887) was a librarian keeper of mining records the the Museum of Practical Geology and professor of mechanical engineering at the Royal School of Mines, at London. He carried on numerous photographic and photomechanical experiments and he was one of the founders of the London Photographic Society. These experiments with organic and inorganic light-sensitive substances, which, with characteristic unselfishness, he made public during the early forties of the last century, were extremely useful in the study of photochemistry, which was then in its infancy, and were of great service for years to those who came after him and used his researches for the basis of their studies." Eder- HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY p. 326. "Included are reports on Hunt's earliest experiments on solar energy and its effect involving both vegetation and metallic salts or compounds. An introductory chapter on the discoveries of Daguerre and Fox Talbot is exceedingly useful as it establishes the range of various light sensitive materials applicable to photography, including platinum, iron and antimony. His is the first use of the word 'platinotype' with reference to platinum prints. The book as a whole is one of the most crucial and one of the earliest theoretical treatises on the science, and differs slightly from the later, 1854 edition, except in some more recent discoveries." From the Arno Press description THE LITERATURE OF PHOTOGRAPHY.Often referred to as the first history of photography, a distinction not quite true. Gernsheim - Incunabula No. 668. Roosens and Salu No. 7952. [Attributes: First Edition]

        MÉLANGES PHOTOGRAPHIQUES. SUPPLÉMENT DES NOUVELLES INSTRUCTIONS SUR L'USAGE DU DAGUERRÉOTYPE

      Paris: Chez L'Auteur, 1844. First edition. 8vo., [4], errata, 127 pp., [1] folded plate, 4 pp. priced catalogue. Modern cloth over boards with gilt titled leather spine label. A contemporary related article was glued to the reverse of the title page, leaving a moderate stain on the title page as well as the following leaf. There are a few faint spots of foxing, otherwise this is a bright and near fine copy. Charles Chevalier (1804-1859) was the leading French manufacturer of the camera obscura, lenses and optical instruments. In 1826, he furnished Niépce with a camera and lens of his own design for his early experiments in reproducing images through the agency of light. He told Niépce of the similar experiments of Daguerre, for whom he also made lenses and cameras, as well as advised him on his experiments. It is Chevalier who made the introduction which lead to the partnership between Niépce and Daguerre. Further, Chevalier supplied lenses and camera equipment for William Henry Fox Talbot. Charles Chevalier published his first manual in 1841; it was one of the earliest manuals of the daguerreian process. In this, his second manual, he has expanded upon the daguerreian process with the latest improvements, and now includes the paper processes of Herschel, Talbot, Hunt and Bayard.

        Latter-day Saints' Millennial Star, Volume V.

      Liverpool: James and Woodburn, Printers, 1844. Leather bound. 200pp. Octavo [21.5 cm] 3/4 calf over marbled boards. Very Good. Light rubbing to extremities. Front joint splitting at head and foot. Title page is loose and laid in. Sporadic foxing to endsheets and pastedown. End sheets and paste downs chipped at foot with subtle losses. This Millennial Star contains the "Trial of Sidney Rigdon" and "Awful Assassination". The trial of Sidney Rigdon pertains to elder Rigdon ordaining his own "Prophets, Priests and Kings". Brigham Young compares Rigdon and his actions to those of James Strang and the Strangites. The supplement, 'Awful Assassination' brought the details of the Smith brothers martyrdom to the British and European Saints. The Millennial Star during this time period was one of the only LDS periodicals, and this supplement is where many of the scattered faithful would have received the news of the Prophet Joseph Smith's murder.
