London, Duncan and Malcolm, 1844.

      1844. 8vo. 2 vols. lxxxiii, (1), 357 pp; vi, 509 pp, (1), with two large folding frontispiece maps of the Arabian peninsula (56 cm x 41 cm), a large folding chart of inscriptions, 1 engraved plate of inscriptions, and one further folding translation of the same inscription. Lacking - apparently never bound with - the "vignette plate of Nakab el Hajar" supposed to face p. 335. Repairs to both maps. Only edition of this detailed study of place names, tribal geneaologies, and pre-Islamic inscriptions. "An attempt at the proof of the descent of the Arabs from Ishmael" (Ghani). Includes an interesting attack on Edward Gibbon's 'geographical' explanation for the rise of Islam out of Mecca; Forster denounces Gibbon's "scepticism" and "artful insinuations" by pointing out some of his errors in historical geography, meanwhile defending the claim of a Scriptural prophecy in favour of the descendants of Ishmael.

        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.

        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..

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.

      1844. Large 8vo. 4 pp. on double leaf. Comprehensive letter to "cher Monsieur et ami", i. e. the publisher Henri Georges Heugel (1844-1916), on Strauß' and her opinion on a play that Albert Vanloo and Eugène Leterrier had sent to them, the current heat in Vienna that has led to close all theatres except the Carltheater (in which Franz von Suppé's "Around the World in Eighty Days" ["Le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours"] was staged), and the Vienna Court Opera (where Verdi himself would conduct his "Requiem" and "Aida" on that evening), and finally on the soprano singer Zaré Thalberg (1858-1915, daughter of the pianist and compeser Sigismund Thalberg) that had been engaged by the Musikverein: "[...] Tous les theatres clos excepté le Carltheater qui fait des affaires avec le tour du monde en 80 jours, et la grande Operá qui fait des merveilles avec la messe de Verdi et Aïda -qu'on donne ce soir pour la 1er fois sous la Direction du Maestro et en italien.

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."

        The Birds of America, from Drawings Made in the United States and Their Territories.

      New York & Philadelphia: J. J. Audubon and [vols. I-V] J. B. Chevalier, [1839-]1840–1844. - 7 volumes, octavo. (250 × 147 mm). Recently rebound to style in black half morocco, gilt panelled spines with owl and eagle motifs, contemporary marbled sides, speckled edges, endleaves renewed. A few plates trimmed by the binder with concomitant shaving of a few captions (encroaching on the plate itself in only one instance). An excellent set. 500 hand-coloured lithographic plates after Audubon by W. E. Hitchcock, R. Trembley and others, printed by J. T. Bowen of Philadelphia (plates 1-135, 151-500) or George Endicott of New York (plates 136-150), numerous wood-engraved anatomical figures in text. First octavo edition of Audubon's "Great National Work", the first complete edition and the first American edition, the original double-elephant folio was published in Edinburgh and London between 1827 and 1838. A very handsome set, the plates clean and fresh, of the "most beautiful, popular, and important natural history books published in America in the nineteenth century. representing the best of pre-Civil War American lithography and giving Audubon the opportunity finally to display his scholarship and genius to a large American audience for the first time" (Ron Tyler). The plates, here accompanied by the text for the first time, were reduced and variously modified from the Havell engravings in the double-elephant folio. Seven new species are figured and seventeen others, previously described in the Ornithological Biography but not illustrated, are pictured for the first time. Audubon may have been prompted to publish the reduced version of his double-elephant folio by the appearance in 1839 of John Kirk Townsend's rival Ornithology of the United States, or, as he writes in the introduction to the present work, he may have succumbed to public demand and his wish that a work similar to his large work should be published but "at such a price, as would enable every student or lover of nature to place it in his Library". The first edition of the octavo work now represents the only realistic opportunity that exists for collectors to own an entire collection of Audubon images in a form that was overseen and approved by the great artist himself.

      Sm. London: Edward Moxon, 1844. Sm. 8vo, iv, 157, (2, ads)pp. Original green cloth, backstrip darkened. First edition of Patmore’s first book, very scarce in original cloth as issued. “Patmore, distressed at its reception, bought up the remainder of the edition and destroyed it. What upset him most was a cruel review in Blackwood's Magazine; but the enthusiasm of his friends, together with their more constructive criticism, helped foster his talent. The publication of this volume bore immediate fruit by causing its author to be introduced to various men of letters, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, through whom Patmore became known to William Holman Hunt, and was thus drawn into the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, contributing his poem "The Seasons" to The Germ.” The Patmore family copy, inscribed: “Derek Patmore own copy. The first published poems of Coventry Patmore, very rare, and I used this copy in preparing my Life & Times of Coventry Patmore (Constable 1949).” Also loosely inserted are two very personal and chatty letters from Coventry Patmore to a Mrs. Garnett dated 1/27/72 and July (?) 24 (no year). Ximenes notes of his copy: “ Patmore published nothing further for another nine years, but he was in time to become one of the most widely-read Victorian poets. A few copies have an errata slip, but there is none present here. A scarce title.... Hayward 263; CBEL III, 487.”

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Berlin, 21. X. 1844.

      1844. 1½ SS. 4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Ich ergreife gern eine Gelegenheit mich durch diese wenigen Zeilen in Ihre mir unschätzbare Erinnerung zurück zu rufen und dadurch zu bezeugen, daß meine erste und liebste Erinnerung nach Breslau nur auf Sie gerichtet ist. Herr von Küstner sendet mir so eben die einliegenden Zeilen in welchen er ausspricht, daß er über die Aufnahme eines Stückes welches jezt [sic] zur Aufführung in Breslau kommen soll (Lady Ellen) ein parteiloses Wort zu hören wünscht zu welchem ich ihm behilflich sein soll. - Vergeben Sie mir meine Ueberlästigkeit, wenn ich mich mit dieser Angelegenheit gerade an Sie wende, von dem ich so oft die freundlichsten und wolhlwollensten [sic] Zurechtweisungen erhalten habe. Daß ich bei meinem jezigen [sic] Opernhausbaue Ihrer stolz und dankbar erinnert habe, wie Sie mein Wirken in Breslau so wohlwollend unterstüzt [sic] haben und daß mir dadurch auch nun der Bau des hiesigen Opernhauses zu Theil geworden ist, darf ich Ihnen wohl nicht erst versichern, aber daß es mir das größte Vergnügen sein würde Ihnen auch den hiesigen Bau bald zeigen zu können, das möchte ich hier auf das lebhafteste aussprechen [...]". - "Lady Ellen" war ein "gewöhnliches, mattes, die Spuren eines weiblichen überspannten Gemütes an sich tragendes Theaterstück", das "weder eine religiöse, politische noch irgendeine besondere Zeittendenz" an sich hätte und "auch in Leipzig nicht gefallen" habe (so der Berliner Polizeirat Hofrichter, zit. n. Heinrich Hubert Houben: Polizei und Zensur. Längs- und Querschnitte durch die Geschichte der Buch- und Theaterzensur. Berlin, Gersbach, 1926, S. 116). Karl Theodor von Küstner war 1842 als Generalintendant der königlichen Theater nach Berlin berufen worden. "Unter seiner Leitung erfolgte ab 1842 die Erneuerung der Königlichen Oper Unter den Linden. Noch vor dem Brand des Opernhauses in der Nacht zum 18. August 1843 wurden auf seine Initiative von den Architekten Carl Ferdinand Langhans, Leo von Klenze und August Stüler Umbaupläne ausgearbeitet, von denen der Entwurf des Hofbaurats Langhans favorisiert und umgesetzt wurde" (Wikipedia). - Mit kleinen Randeinrissen.

The plan for the journal had been conceived as early as early 1843; the two editors Marx and Ruge clashed after only a year of collaboration, for which reason no more than two issues appeared. - Some browning; a few pencil markings and underlinings; contemp. ownership to title page.
