London: John W. Parker, 1844. London:: John W. Parker, 1844., 1844. 2 volumes. 8vo. viii, [4], 516, 4; [iv], xx, 560 pp. Half-titles, numerous engraved figures, index, ads. Original black blind-stamped cloth, gilt-stamped spines; neatly rebacked preserving original spines. Bookplates of Isaac Brown and Flounders Institute, Ackworth, title-page rubberstamp of G. L. Harrison, Hull. Very good. Very Scarce. The true first edition of William Henry Smyth's classic handbook intended for amateur astronomers. George Lovi calls it "the first true celestial Baedeker and not just another 'cold' catalogue of mere numbers and data. In 1825 Smyth established a private observatory in Bedford, England, equipped with a 5.9-inch refractor telescope. He used this instrument to observe a variety of deep sky objects over the course of the 1830s, including double stars, star clusters and nebulae. He published his observations in 1844 in the Cycle of Celestial Objects, which earned him the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1845 and also the presidency of the society. The first volume of this work was on general astronomy, but the second volume became known as the Bedford Catalogue and contained Smyth's observations of 1,604 double stars and nebulae. It served as a standard reference work for many years afterward; no astronomer had previously made as extensive a catalogue of dim objects such as this. It was reprinted in 1986, and in the Foreword to that edition George Lovi . . . writes, 'What makes it so special is that it is the first true celestial Baedeker and not just another 'c … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Hudson's Bay Company]: Ross, Donald
Norway House" [Nelson River, Manitoba, Canada], 1844. [3]pp. plus integral address leaf. Folded sheet. Short separations at folds, hole from opening costing a few words, else very good. For much of the first half of the 19th century Great Britain and the United States had jointly occupied the fur-rich Oregon country (known as the Columbia District to the Hudson's Bay Company), the northwest coast region west of the continental divide, north of the Columbia River to the 54th parallel. By 1844, however, with America's vision of manifest destiny in full swing, the U.S. laid claim to the region, launching the Fifty-four Forty or Fight campaign. Particularly debated was the area north of the Columbia but south of the 49th parallel (i.e. much of present-day Washington State). Ross here argues that if that area were ceded, the entire region to the 54th parallel might as well be forsaken: "...Our furs, I am happy to see, sold well last winter, with the exception of Beaver, and the quantity sent home was by no means small, yet somehow or other, we cannot manage to make profit nowadays, tho' the trade was never carried on in this country with so little expense; there must be a peg loose somewhere, that is a clear case, but I shall not pretend to say where the leakage is. The trade of this Department for the last outfit is certainly very good...and as we are now again to hunt beaver without restraint, I expect the current year will produce something even better than the last...The Columbia too has given large return for the last outfit but its expenses, I fear, will swallow all u … [Click Below for Full Description]

Houstoun, Matilda C.
London: John Murray, 1844. Two volumes. viii,314; viii,360pp., plus ten plates (seven lithographs by Day & Haghe [two portraits and five views], three wood- engraved plates [two signed "SW"]). Frontispiece in each volume. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spines gilt, marbled endpapers, t.e.g., by Ringer. Minor shelf wear, joints worn. Bookplate on each front pastedown. Very good. The author was a wealthy British woman who visited Texas in 1842 on her husband's private yacht. She visited New Orleans, then sailed along the Gulf Coast, alternating between Texas and New Orleans. Mrs. Houstoun offers commentary on the politics and society of the day, including issues such as slavery and a possible civil war. "...She gives us some exceptional insights into Texas of the 1840's" - Jenkins. The lithographs are included in Holman and Tyler's preliminary research on 19th-century Texas lithography. They include portraits of Gen. Santa Anna and President Houston and views of the city of Galveston, Funchal in Madeira, the city of Houston, Havana harbor, and ending with a nighttime view of the Plaza des Armas in Havana. All are wonderfully executed by the British firm of Day & Haghe, lithographers to the Crown. The "alpine" Houston view, while apocryphal, may be the first published view of the city, and the prototype for subsequent views showing the city in the midst of mountains. In addition there is a fine wood-engraved vignette view of the "Dolphin Yacht in the Mississippi"; and two beautifully observed wood-engraved character studies, the first of "Nancy, th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Myerson calls the issue without the plates, the first issue, while Blanck notes: "As to whether or not the book was first issued with illustrations is still a question . a rebound copy in Harvard, inscribed by early owner June, 1844 has the illustrations." Rare, not in ABPC for the last 25 years. Not in Graff. This copy has been "signed" twice by Fuller with a "signed" poem by E. A. Poe on the rear endpaper. These "signatures" are probably in the hand of noted forger Joseph Cosey, with an article by Cosey laid in. This is a very good tight copy. This is Fuller's first original book, following several translations; it recounts a journey taken with James Freeman Clarke and his sister, Sarah, through the northern Middle West in 1843.Margaret Fuller (1810-1850) influenced the thinking of her contemporaries and "crystallized the Transcendental movement" (NAW, I). For two years she edited the movement's journal, The Dial, publishing in its July, 1843 issue her essay, "Man vs. Men. Woman vs. Women". A year and a half later, she expanded the essay as Woman in the Ninteenth Century, called "her literary masterpiece."

Engels, Friedrich.
1844. 8vo. (4), VI, (3)-199, (1), IX, II, (1) pp. Publisher's brown cloth, gilt lettered to the spine. Now housed in bespoke brown cloth case. First British edition of the first English translation. This British edition was almost certainly issued to tie in with the publication of the latest English translation of Engels and Marx's "Manifesto of the Communist Party", also published by Reeves in London in 1888. It was published using the sheets of the first US edition which appeared in New York the previous year; the first edition printed in the UK did not appear for another four years. Whilst the first New York edition is uncommon, this London edition is particularly scarce with scant few auction records and not many institutional holdings: Copac lists two in the UK, at the British Library and Oxford, with Worldcat listing three more, two in the US and one in the Netherlands. - A few blemishes to the contents, occasional old pencilled underlining and marginalia, sometime neatly recased with new endpapers, some light wear to the edges of the binding, but generally a decent copy. Provenance: formerly in the Midlands Workers' Library of Birmingham with their loan label to the second free endpaper (listing a single loan in March 1945) and the faint remains of a white numbered shelfmark to the spine; the library's highly distinctive and attractive pictorial bookplate to the front pastedown featuring illustrations of workers set amid Communist iconography.

SUMMARY: •The Life and Adventures of Martin Chuzzlewit (commonly known as Martin Chuzzlewit) is a novel by Charles Dickens, considered the last of his picaresque novels. It was originally serialised between 1842 and 1844. While writing it Dickens told a friend that he thought it his best work, but it was one of his least popular novels. Like nearly all of Dickens' novels, Martin Chuzzlewit was released to the public in monthly instalments. Early sales of the monthly parts were disappointing, compared to previous works, so Dickens changed the plot to send the title character to America. This allowed the author to portray the United States (which he had visited in 1842) satirically as a near wilderness with pockets of civilisation filled with deceptive and self-promoting hucksters. BACKGROUND: •Charles John Huffam Dickens (7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary dark green calf, ornamented in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, inner dentelles ornamented in gilt, pink watered endpapers, all edges gilt; pp. [iv], 330, [2, errata], tables in the text; light wear to extremities, a little spotted in places; provenance: duplicate from a Latvian library (1920s stamp), crossed out earlier German stamp of the Society for Antiquities of the Baltic Provinces of Russia. Scarce first edition of this picture of Russian economy, trade and manufacturing at the time, written by an English lecturer in Dorpat (Tartu, Estonia), who later wrote a book on the impact of the revolutions of 1848/9 on the Austro-Hungarian economy and administration. In the preface he obliquely hints that he wanted to include more statistical tables and material but was stopped by 'important voices' (i.e. the Russian authorities). Divided into six chapters the book opens with a geographical and statistic survey of the Empire, the national wealth, primary production, and industry. This is followed by the trade, the situation of the merchant class and their restrictions, ports, im- and export. The fifth chapter is on customs and tariffs, and the final one deals with trade companies, steam navigation, transport companies and trade agreements. Goldsmiths'-Kress 33720.

Church of England. Book of Common Prayer.
William Pickering (pr. by Whittingham), 1844. Complete set of Pickering's handsome homages to important editions of the Book of Common Prayer, consisting of six early versions and one contemporary: Edward VI, 1549; Edward VI, 1552; Elizabeth, 1559; James I, 1604; Charles I, 1637 (for the use of the Church of Scotland, commonly called Archbishop Lauds); Charles II, 1662; and Victoria, 1844. The uniform black-letter printing was done by Charles Whittingham the younger, of the Chiswick Press, "distinguished for . . . tasteful design and excellent presswork" (Oxford DNB online). The collaboration between Whittingham and Pickering, one of the most important publishers of the 19th century, produced a number of impressive volumes; the present effort is notable for its outstanding typography and its wood-engraved initials and ornaments done by Mary Byfield. The original title-pages are reproduced in facsimile. Provenance: Elegant old lozenge-shaped ink-stamp on title-pages: "John Brymer Heir-Loom."

SAND George (HETZEL Pierre-Jules)
- Nohant décembre 1844, 10,3x16,5cm, 1 page sur un feuillet. - Lettre autographe signée de George Sand à Pierre-Jules Hetzel, 10 lignes écrites à l'encre noire. Tampon des "Archives et collections de J.L. Debauve" Pliures inhérentes à l'envoi postal. Une infime restauration de papier au verso du feuillet au niveau de l'une des pliures. "Mon cher Hetzel, j'ai à vous parler de quelque chose qui m'intéresse beaucoup.

L'implication de l'éditeur dans la vie littéraire de son temps lui permet d'obtenir la confiance de George Sand : "Dans toute la librairie je n'ai confiance qu'en vous, qui êtes non un marchand de livres mais un homme" (lettre de 1846 à Pierre-Jules Hetzel). Cette amitié est aussi politique. George Sand et Pierre-Jules Hetzel sont tous deux enthousiastes face à la chute de la monarchie de juillet en 1848, enthousiasme muselé peu après avec le coup d'état de Napoléon III en 1851 qui met un terme à leurs espoirs républicains.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Boston: James Munroe and Company, 1844. 34pp. Original printed wrappers. Minor wear and soiling to wrappers. Modern bookplate tipped to inside of front cover. Very minor foxing. Very good. In a blue half morocco and cloth slipcase with chemise, spine gilt. Abolitionist address by Emerson, commemorating the anniversary of the end of slavery in the West Indies. He closes by noting: "There remains the very elevated consideration which the subject opens, but which belongs to more abstract views than we are now taking, this namely, that the civility of no race can be perfect while another race is degraded. It is a doctrine alike of the oldest, and of the newest philosophy, that, man is one, and that you cannot injure any member, without a sympathetic injury to all the members. America is not civil, whilst Africa is barbarous." BAL 5199. MYERSON 17.1.a.

[Morris, Robert] Gibbons, James S. (pseud.)
[New York, 1844. Folio sheet, 17 x 12 1/2 in. [2] pp., text in three columns. Printed at head of the title: "New-York Tribune Extra." Article signed by James S. Gibbons. A protest against the annexation of Texas, issued as Whig campaign literature. The author states that "[t]he Annexation of Texas to the Unites States is the rallying point of the battle between freedom and slavery -- represented in the two great parties which contend for the reins of government....

The Annexation of Texas would triple the activity of the foreign trade, and perhaps quadruple the number of its victims." The author is described in the introduction to his appeal as an ardent Abolitionist, residing in New York City, formerly Chairman of the Executive Committee of the American Anti-Slavery Society, and a Quaker. As an abolitionist, he appeals to others of like minds to choose to vote with the Whigs in the upcoming election. He declares: "What arms are these, outstretched to arrest the march of slave-holding sovreignty? What voices are these, which are heard above the clamor of political strife, declaring in clear and undismayed tones, TEXAS SHALL NOT BE ANNEXED? They are the arms, the voices the presses, the statesmen, the candidates of the great Whig party of our country!!" Ultimately, t … [Click Below for Full Description]
