        Die Venetianer Alpen. Ein Beitrag zur Kenntniss der Hochgebirgte, met einen geognostischen Karte und Gebirgteprofilen in achtzehn Tafeln.

      Solothurn, Jent & Gassmann, 1844. Oblong folio (29.8 x 35.5 cm), [4], 60 pp., 18 mostly hand-coloured engraved maps and plates.

        Autograph letter signed ("C. Laplace"). Fort-Royal (Martinique), December 1844.

      1844. Large 8vo. 2¼ pp. on double leaf. Written from Fort-Royal, where he commanded a division between 1844 and 1847. Laplace informs his correspondent that he has kept the addressee's nephew aboard his frigate and thinks of returning him to Basse-Terre (Guadeloupe). He further writes that he had planned to return to Guadeloupe sooner, but circumstances had prevented him from traveling. - Laplace was commander of La Favorite with which he circumnavigated the globe between 1830 and 1832, promoting France's overseas trade. In 1837-1840 he made a second voyage during which he visited Hawaii with the 52-gun frigate L'Artémise to end the persecution of Catholics (as the French saw it), an intervention known as the Laplace Affair. - Slightly spotty.

      1844. [In Three Volumes.] London: Chapman and Hall, 1844/-45/-45. 16 pp Vol III ads dated Aug 1845. Original blind-stamped green-grey cloth. First English Edition in book form, secondary issue. Chapman and Hall issued THE WANDERING JEW in weekly numbers and also in bi­monthly parts during 1844-45, concurrent with its appearance in the original French in Paris; the three volumes were issued separately, as the tale was completed serially.~Marie-Joseph Eugène Sue did for France what Charles Dickens did for England: establish the concept of the serial novel, with each part ending with a cliff-hanging predicament. His two most famous works are THE MYSTERIES OF PARIS (90 parts, 1842-1843), followed by this one, LE JUIF ERRANT -- a tale of a family hunted all over the world, and curiously beginning with the protagonist and his sister crying out to each other across the Bering Strait.~The primary issue of THE WANDERING JEW was bound in red cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, and included plates by various artists, engraved by Heath. Then (to quote from Sadleir), "Late in 1845 (but with title pages unaltered) the three-volume book edition was re-issued, without the plates, and bound in dark green fine­ribbed cloth." This is such a copy.~It is in near-fine condition (quite clean and bright, though with one front cover faintly spotted and edge-dented, another with a few tiny pinholes, and all three endpapers with a 1951 signature). This is rather remarkable condition for 1845 volumes still in original cloth; most copies that turn up today are rebound. Sadleir 3159 (note).

        The Book of Hardy Flowers; or, Gardeners' Edition of the Botanic Garden

      London : R Groombridge A very good complete copy of the Gardeners' Edition of the Botanic Garden, 8 volumes bound in 4, with 96 tissue-guarded hand coloured plates (12 per volume). This variant of the Botanic Garden is extremely scarce. It is presumed to have been first published in 1844 and to have been produced as a cut down, and therefore cheaper, version of the Botanic Garden, for practical gardeners to use. This set is bound in contemporary half leather bindings with gilt-lined raised bands, blind stamped decoration and title and volume labels to the spines. The boards are marbled. The bindings are sound if scuffed, particularly to the corner leather and to the marbled boards. Spines with general wear. The original endpapers are present, and there is a faint signature to the fep on 3 volumes (on an initial blank in the 4th). Each of the 4 volumes is in 2 parts, with separate title pages and indexes, with 12 hand coloured plates (each illustrating 4 plants) and text descriptions. The plate paper varies across the volumes from white to toned. The colouring on the plates also varies: on some it is rudimentary; on others detailed and precise. The contents are in very good condition overall: there is occasional light marking - generally in the top margin; and there is a small split in the front endpaper joint at the base in Vol III. Size: 20.5 x 17 cm.

        The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit

      London: Chapman and Hall, , 1844. With Illustrations by Phiz. Octavo (133 × 213 mm). Bound by Marshall in contemporary green half calf, marbled sides, red morocco label to spine letterd gilt, blind lattice pattern to spine, marbled edges and endpapers. Engraved frontispiece, vignette title page and 39 plates by "Phiz" (H. K. Browne). Spine slightly faded, some light wear to extremities, some foxing and oxidization to plates, overall an excellent copy, attractively bound. First edition, bound from the parts with stab-holes visible, and with the textual flaws noted by Smith. This copy has the £100 title plate, not transposed. The transposed plate is often referred to as a first issue point, though Hatton and Cleaver contend this, stating that "It is merely one of the five cases in Chuzzlewit of triplicated steels, one of them reading '100£' and the other two '£100' ... all three of them in use during the issue in parts.

        Faune méridionale ou description de tous les animaux vertébrés vivans et fossiles, sauvages ou domestiques qui se rencontrent toute l'année ou qui ne sont que de passage dans les plus grande partie du Midi de la France; suivie d'une méthode de taxidermie ou l'art d'empailler les oiseaux.

      Nimes, chez l'auteur, and Montpellier, M. Lebrun, 1844. Two volumes of text and one atlas in three. 8vo (text volumes 21.5 x 13.0 cm; atlas 21.6 x 15.2 cm). 714 pp. [xxviii, 320, (2); ix, 354 (1)], 74 lithographed plates (one double-sized and double present). Contemporary uniform pebbled calf over pebbled boards. Spines with gilt lines and tite. Marbled endpapers.= One of the earliest general works on the zoology of this part of France. The text volumes are not uncommon, but the plate volume, with illustrations by the author, is extremely rare. The plates mostly depict birds (53 plates). Six plates are herpetological, including lizards, turtles, snakes, frogs, toads, and salamanders. Nissen only quotes 70 plates, as follows: 1-74 without 12, 28, 70, and 73. This copy comfirms the absence of 12, 28, and 70, but it does include 14bis, 35bis, 36bis, and 73 (twice, both double-sized and dealing with bird taxidermy. One is numbered plate 70 in pencil and this seems to be an error for 74 or vice versa. In any event, the total is 73 plates, disregarding the double plate. ADDED is a very rare, perhaps unrecorded printed pamphlet with the drophead title: "Catalogue de la collection zoologique de Jean Crespon, de Nimes a vendre" (12 pp), with original blind wrappers with script title. This catalogue includes extensive lists of animals covered in the book, and much more. Again, most are stuffed birds, and eggs, but there is also an interesting section on reptiles, as well as on fish, insects, shells, jewels, weapons, etc., etc. Jules Crespon (1797-1857) was a tinker, barber, soldier, and professional taxidermist and probably this list contains his inventory as well as his scarce personal belongings and therefore may date from 1857. According to Wikipedia, "En 1844, il fait paraître un ouvrage encore plus ambitieux intitulé La Faune méridionale en deux volumes. Crespon y décrit 27 nouvelles espèces. Les vingt dernières années de la vie de Crespon sont difficiles: malade, il finit par ne plus pouvoir s?occuper de ses collections dont nombre de spécimens disparaissent. Elles sont léguées au Muséum de Nîmes créé en 1895". Old owner's stamp (a taxidermist) on the title page and half-title, some marginal spotting to plates. Two plates with a small old repair, some 12 plates cut short at the bottom with slight loss of the captions, otherwise a good set. Nissen ZBI, 989.

In-8 (138 X 220) demi-chagrin vert lierre, dos quatre nerfs plats filetés, fleuron doré dans les compartiments, titre doré, tranches guillochées (reliure de l'époque) ; XXXI-351 pages. Quelques rousseurs claires, petit manque de papier en tête du faux-titre. PREMIÈRE ÉDITION française de cet ouvrage RARE, publiée la même année que l'originale anglaise. Il est traduit de l'anglais avec des notes et une introduction par Mme Louise SW.-Belloc. Cet ouvrage est moins une description géographique qu'un voyage pittoresque. Parti de Tanger le 15 août 1839, Sir John DRUMMOND HAY (1816-1893) avait pour mission d'acheter des chevaux de choix pour le compte de la reine Victoria. Au point de vue politique, l'auteur insiste pour une alliance entre l'Angleterre et le Maroc. Parlant couramment l'arabe, il exercera dans ce pays de 1845 à 1886 les fonctions de consul-général pour le Royaume-Uni. (Gay, 1231). Exemplaire en BEL ÉTAT, conservé dans sa solide reliure de l'époque. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

        View of Jerusalem. No place, 1844.

      1844. C. 280 x 180 mm. Pencil and opaque white on brown paper, signed at bottom left: "Rainer | May 1844", captioned at right: "Jerusalem gesehen vom Tempel des Salomon". Matted. Depicts the south-western corner of the Temple Mount (with Dome of the Rock, Al-Aqsa Mosque, and hinting at the recently rediscovered Robinson's Arch). Archduke Rainer, one of the most eminent figures during the rule of Emperor Franz Josef, also was a talented landscape painter and lithographer (cf. Fuchs II, 37). Although he served in political functions (he was Austria's first constitutional Minister-President from 1861 to 1865), his heart always belonged to the arts and sciences. An honorary member of the Imperial and Royal Academy of Sciences, the variously talented Archduke was one of the Habsburg family's most remarkable collectors: his Viennese library encompassed some 40,000 volumes (not counting the inherited library in Hernstein Castle), and the "El Fayum" papyrus collection acquired by him, containing a treasure of 180,000 papyri now stored in the National Library, is regarded as "the greatest of its kind in the world" (Unesco, Memory of the world, Nominated Documentary Heritage). - Rainer, son of the brother of Emperor Franz, spent his youth under the tutelage of his artistically inclined parents and excellent teachers, and it was common for the young Austrian Archdukes in the first half of the 19th century to be instructed in draughtsmanship by the great Chamber painters of the time. The Holy Land was not an uncommon station on the tour of contemporary Chamber painters: Eduard Gurk even died there in 1841 on a study tour. - The quality of the present illustration clearly surpasses that of Rainer's known student drawings (two, dated 1839, are preserved at the National Library, Bildarchiv und Fideikommissbibliothek, PK 3050 2 and 3). The mature talent of the Archduke, only seventeen years old in 1844, is especially evident in comparison with the works of other members of the Imperial family, many of which also dabbled in landscape painting (their works are preserved in the so-called Dilettante cassettes in the Albertina).

        Lettre autographe signée ("Juliette"). S. l., vendredi matin 24 mai [1844].

      1844. 4 pages in-8. À Victor Hugo. Belle lettre d'une amoureuse délaissée. Elle est "confuse, triste, vexée, enragée", et elle se donne des coups de poings "à indiscrétion": "Je ne te vois plus, mon Toto, je ne t'occupe pas mais je ne te vois plus. Il est clair, cependant, que ce ne peut pas toujours être ton travail qui te retienne avec cette régularité ce sont bien plutôt les visites que tu fais et que tu reçois qui en sont la cause. Autrefois tu donnais moins de temps aux devoirs du monde et tu en donnais davantage à l'amour. Tu travaillais autant, si non plus, et j'étais plus heureuse. L'hiver je peux passer les nuits entières en veillant l'été je ne le peux pas; dès qu'arrive une heure du matin mes yeux se ferment malgré moi. Comment faire alors pour te voir puisque tu ne viens guère qu'à ce moment-là? Je ne me coucherai pas, je tiendrai mes croisées ouvertes et je prendrai du café pour m'empêcher de dormir. De cette façon, je pourrai au moins profiter des quelques minutes que tu peux me donner. Je commencerai ce régime ce soir [...]".

        Memoria em que se pertende provar que os Arabes não conhecerão as Canarias antes dos Portuguezes.Lisbon, printing office of the Academia Real das Sciencias, 1844. Folio. With a woodcut Portuguese coat of arms on the title-page. Modern brown paper wrapper.

      Porbase (1 copy); cf. Innocêncio IV, 96 and XII, 80 (issue in proceedings); for the author: A detailed scholarly study of ancient sources for the history and geography of the Canary Islands, attempting to prove that the Portuguese discovered them before Islamic explorers, and that Islamic geographers knew them only through classical Greek and Roman sources. The main text is followed by extensive notes from a wide variety of sources and transcriptions of numerous primary sources, some in Greek or Arabic. In passing it also provides a wealth of information about navigation in the Mediterranean and Atlantic by classical Greek and Roman and by Islamic explorers. While Macedo's claim for Malocello's discovery of the Canaries in 1336 is no longer accepted, the Islamic geographer Idrisi noted a Portuguese voyage to the Canaries already before 1154.In fine condition and wholly untrimmed, giving very large margins. The modern wrapper is slightly tattered.

      Oxford: Printed at the University Press, 1844. Not found in Griffiths. Full deep maroon morocco binding, with marbled eps, and elaborately gauffered edges with watercolor closed fore-edge painting of lettered scrolls, by Hayday (with his ink stamp on the verso of the ffep). Edge scrolls lettered with biblical invocations: "Watch and Pray" to bottom, "Take Up Heed. Watch and Pray" to fore-edge, "Watch and Pray" to top edge. Minor rubbing to extremities. Nr Fine.. Common Prayer: Unpaginated, though 668 pp. T.p. & text printed in red & black ink. Pages with red rule border. Psalms: Unpaginated, though 96 pages. Black rule border. New Version: Unpaginated, though 84 pages. Thin black rule border. 16mo: a - d^4 B - 2R^8 2S^6; A - D^12; A - C^12 D^6. Binding: 5-3/4" x 3-1/2". Leaf: 14 cm. A lovely example of a Hayday binding, quite uncommon with the closed fore-edge painting. Weber notes that there is "no evidence that Hayday ever made a traditional fore-edge painting", but points to a similarly-decorated Hayday Book of Common Prayer as evidence that the bindery nevertheless produced some works, usually Bibles, Psalms, etc., with closed edge decoration intermingled with Hayday's traditional heavily-gauffered edge work. The same artist who designed the closed-edge scrolls employed here is likely to have supplied the design to Samuel Bagster, as well.  This copy predates both examples mentioned by Weber, and serves as an additional example of the probable, though unconfirmed, relationship between Bagster and Hayday.

EDITION ORIGINALE. ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE signé : "A Monsieur Sainte-Beuve, hommage de l'auteur. Ch. Fournel". Ce second ouvrage de l'auteur, après "Ombres et Rayons" (1840), fut imprimé à Berlin où l'auteur résidait en qualité de précepteur des enfants de la couronne. Originaire de Metz, Charles Fournel revint s'installer en France peu après la publication de ce volume. Il enseigna l'allemand au Lycée de Tournon, où il se lia d'amitié avec Stéphane Mallarmé professeur d'anglais dans le même établissement et sur lequel on dit qu'il exerça une réelle influence. Paul Ackermann évoque le destinataire dans la préface du présent recueil :"il n'y a plus guère à dire sur la poésie de sentiments, après ce qu'en a dit Mr Sainte-Beuve et d'autres célèbres critiques. J'espère qu'ici on ne la trouvera point inférieure aux ballades du même auteur, et qu'on sentira une heureuse fusion du lyrisme français et du risque allemand."
