        Le Marchand d'Images [The Printseller]

      Paris: Lemercier, 1845. Lithograph by Jacot after a painting by Guillemin. Printed on wove paper with thick wove backing for support. Very good condition apart from some light soiling, mild rippling and a few minor foxing marks in the margins. This charming print represents a print seller attempting to sell his wares to a middle-class couple in a domestic interior. Most likely having spotted the only print in the sparsely furnished room, a faded religious subject hung over the armoire, the vendor selects a small image of the Madonna and Child from his portfolio, which he thinks might interest his potential clients. During the nineteenth century, prints were extremely popular among members of the middle-class. They were an inexpensive and consequently affordable way for people to own reproductions of works of art. Lithographs, which were invented in the late eighteenth-century, were particularly popular. Produced through a relatively easy process, they were the ideal medium through which images could be widely disseminated. Lemercier was one of the most prominent printers and publishers of lithographs in nineteenth-century Paris.

        Lengthy ALS to the Reverend Algernon Wells in London on the feuding among Adelaide churchmen

      Maesbury House, near Adelaide: 22 September, 1845. Detailed 6-page letter, 255 x 205 mm., address panel to final leaf intact, neatly written on paper watermarked "Wilmot" 1843; very good, sent to London by ship letter. A subtantial letter - around 1500 words in length - giving a detailed and insightful account of very early conditions in the relatively new colony of South Australia, dwelling particularly on a controversy then raging among key members of the South Australian Congregational Church. Such a vituperative account of religion in early South Australia is most interesting, especially given that Roberts himself was a contentious figure, accused of being an "avowed slanderer" in an anonymous article published in the South Australian on 25 March 1845, and personally responsible for a long-running war of words in the Adelaide newspapers. Both Roberts, and his detested rival Reverend Thomas Quinton Stow, went on to have long careers in South Australia, and both became old settlers of note.The letter is addressed to Algernon Wells, the first secretary of the CMS, and a man reputed to have been instrumental in promoting the work of the Society in the newer colonies, notably South Australia and New Zealand (see Hilary M. Carey, God's Empire, pp. 194-5). At the time of writing Roberts had been in South Australia for over two years, and evidently felt that he could be silent no more, particularly as regards what he saw as the wasteful indulgence of the incumbent, Reverend Stow: "A Missionary with a grand carriage - how incompatible; a Missionary with a farm - how inconsistent; a Missionary with flocks and herds - how incongruous."Roberts refers to a great number of supporting witnesses (foremost Mr & Mrs Howard who are returning to England on the Taglioni, and Mr and Mrs Allan who also return on the Sans Pareille, both ships which sailed from Port Adelaide in 1845), in his contention that the facts as presented to the Committee are not accurate, and particularly to defend himself and the Mission from the libellous assertions on one Mr Mills that the South Australian Mission was being financially profligate. Roberts goes into a detailed rebuttal of some of the wilder accusations being made by Mills and his supporters. Most of all he is at pains to live up to his feeling that "foreign aid in such a Community as ours is an evil and not a benefit." Although the role of Mills clearly upset Roberts, it is the local man Stow who aggrieves him, "with his grand carriage - Gig and Horses, Farm & herds": his interest, asserts Roberts, is more with his sheep than his flock. He also singles out the foolishness of Stow's decision to erect the chapel at Hindmarsh right opposite the Independent Church. In contrast, "our chapel at Kensington is well attended", with some 80 to 90 parishioners regularly attending.

        Relation des voyages faits par les Arabes et les Persans dans l'Inde et à la Chine dans le IXe siècle de l'ère chrétienne; texte Arabe imprimé en 1811 par les soins de feu Langlès [.].

      Paris, Imprimerie royale, 1845. - 2 volumes. 18mo. [6], CLXX, 154; 105, [1 blank], 202 pp. With Arabic title-page printed in red and black.Contemporary tanned half sheepskin, gold-tooled spine. First edition in French of two Arabic travels to China and India. The text was translated from the Arabic by the French orientalist and professor Joseph Toussaint Reinaud (1795-1867). The Arabic text was first printed in 1811, under supervision of the French linguist and orientalist Louis-Mathieu Langlès. The first volume starts with an introduction to the text, followed by the translation. The main text can be divided into two sections. The first account is based on statement from a merchant called Suleyman, who's said to have travelled to India and China in the years 851-852 (237), however, the actual author of the text is unknown. The following account is written down by Abu Zayd al-Hasan al-Sirafi. Al-Mas'udi, "the Herodotus of the Arabs", mentions al-Sirafi in one of his works, stating that he met him in the year 915-916 (303) in Basra, Iraq. Al-Sirafi tells us he was commanded to verify and extend the earlier account. The date of the second account is unclear, but it was probably written in the first half of the 10th century. The text gives a lively account of the life in China and India, with " the first foreign descriptions of tea and porcelain, and a whole panorama of Chinese society, from the Son of Heaven and Confucian ethics down to toilet paper and bamboo urinals" (Mackintosh-Smith). The second volume gives notes to the translation, followed by the Arabic text. Added to the Arabic text are two extracts from works by Al-Mas'udi, including his Muruj al-dhahab. - With owner's inscription on title-page. Sides slightly rubbed. A very good copy: only some minor browning. Cordier, Sinica, cols. 1924-1925; Hage Chahine 3965; ed. T. Mackintosh-Smith and J. Montgomery, Two Arabic travel books (2014), pp. 4-17.

      Stuttgart & Tubingen, 1845. Text: Original three-quarter pebbled morocco, spines gilt. Light wear to bindings. Bookplates on front pastedowns. Some light scattered foxing and dampstaining. Atlas: Three-quarter calf, rebacked with original spine laid down. Corners worn. Light scattered soiling. A very good set. Humboldt's famous attempt at a complete scientific survey of the physical sciences and their relations to each other. "...It was his KOSMOS - 'The Cosmos, Outline of a Description of the Physical World' - based on lectures delivered at the Berlin Singakademie in 1828-9, which Humboldt really considered as his life work....In his own words it was meant 'to represent in one work the whole material world, everything we know today of the phenomena in the celestial spaces and of life on is meant to describe a chapter in the intellectual development of mankind'" - PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN. Humboldt's interests and achievements cover a wide field, including geography, meteorology, and plant distribution. He was among the earliest scientists to seek an understanding of the complex relationship between environmental elements (e.g. between plants, geography, weather, animal life, and the like). The atlas volume, which is a cartographic landmark in itself, contains a suite of handsome topographical, meteorological, and other maps depicting every continent and region of the globe. This set includes the fifth text volume, not found in all sets. PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 320.

Lithographic title printed in two colours, uncoloured lithographic dedication to Apolph, Duke of Nassau, tinted lithographic list of plates with decorative surround and illustrative vignettes, 28 tinted lithographic plates (including 4 section titles), all by and after George Barnard. Contemporary blue/green moiré cloth-covered boards, expertly re-backed to style with red morocco, titled in gilt on spine, yellow glazed endpapers A fine copy of this charming work A fine series of views of Nassau and the Lahn valley: an area renowned in the 19th century for the curative properties of its bubbling spa waters, and a fashionable destination for the wealthy of Europe. "In this work the Author has endeavoured , as far as was in his power, to combine graphically the characteristic incidents and manners of the country of certain German Spas [Weisbaden, Ems, Langen Schwalbach, Schlangenbad, the Lahn, etc.], with the striking beauties of scenery, whether drawn from the works of Nature or from the structures raised by man. Having gone over most of the ground broken up by Sir Francis Head, he has essayed to do that with his pencil which the former has done so well with his pen." The plates are presented in four sections marked by subtitles and with the salient points of each image explained in the accompanying text. Cf. Abbey Travel 120.

        An original design for a porcelain Delft vase

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing. A rare example of an original watercolour design based on an 18th-century Delft vase in the Musée des Arts Décoratif, by the Samson factory of Paris. This finished design was intended as a reference source from which the porcelain painters could work, using the design as a guide for the colours and image to be transformed from paper into fine porcelain. The French porcelain manufactory of Samson & Cie. was established by "Edmé Samson (b. Paris, 1810; d. Paris, 1891) at 7, Rue Vendôme (later Rue Béranger) in Paris. The intention of the firm was to reproduce ceramics from museums and private collections, and it claimed that all such reproductions would be distinctly marked to avoid confusion with the originals. In 1864, the factory was moved to Montreuil by Samson's son, Emile Samson (1837-1913). The range of wares included copies of 18th-century porcelain from such factories as Sèvres, Chelsea, Meissen and Derby, Chinese export-wares, especially armorial wares decorated with famille rose colours and mugs decorated with the Fitzhugh pattern, Delftware, Iznikware, maiolica and faience."

        On the Physics of Media that are Composed of Free and Perfectly Elastic Molecules in a State of Motion" bound extract from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London A 183,1892, pp. 1 - 79

      - FIRST EDITION OF WATERSTON'S FOUNDATIONAL WORK IN STATISTICAL MECHANICS OF GASES. This is a bound original extract. In 1845 Waterston submitted a paper [this paper] to the Philosophical Transactions that contained a number of ground breaking theories, including: Heat is the result of the motion of particles; One can compute the properties of a system of particles as a whole by averaging their possible states (predecessor to the "ergodic theorem"); In thermal equilibrium, energy is shared equally among all of its various forms (the "Equipartition theorem"); Gas pressure is a function of the number of molecules per unit volume, molecular mass and molecular velocity; The mean square molecular velocity is inversely proportional to the specific weight of the molecules; Temperature is proportional to the product of pressure and volume (the ideal gas law). In short, Waterston's paper was "an essentially correct and comprehensive kinetic theory?[that] included for the first time a statement of the equipartition of energy among molecules of different masses, it treated the speeds of the molecules, and it gave a satisfactory treatment of specific heats" (Laidler, Energy and the Unexpected, 48). However due to an absurd series of unfortunate decisions, the Phil Trans did not publish Waterston's paper until 1892, nearly a decade after his death. "The name of John James Waterston might have been added to the list of major contributors to kinetic theory and molecular theory but for an unfortunate bungling in the handling of his remarkable memoir submitted to the Royal Society in 1845. [The Royal Society rejected the paper and never returned to him, and he could not submit it elsewhere because he had not kept a copy.]. Upon discovery of the manuscript in the Archives of the Royal Society, Lord Rayleigh saw to it that it was published in 1892, almost fifty years too late. In his introduction to the publication Lord Rayleigh Commented "Impressed with the above passage and with the general ingenuity and soundness of Waterston's views, I took the first opportunity of consulting the Archives, and saw at once that the memoir justified the large claims made for it, and that it marks an immense advance in the direction of the now generally received theory. The omission to publish it at the time was a misfortune, which probably retarded the development of the subject by ten or fifteen years" (Davis, The Airborne Microparticle, 18). CONDITION & DETAILS: Bound extract from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London A 183,1892, pp. 1-79. Quarto. (11.5 x 8.75 inches; 288 x 219mm). 2 plates. Tightly and solidly bound in later half calf over brown cloth (aged by conservator with small spots on the front board); gilt-lettered at the spine. One small library stamp on the bottom of the first page, otherwise pristine.

Carl Price (geb. 1803) entstammte einer großen englischen Kunstreiterfamilie, die ca. 1785 nach Skandinavien ging. Einige Nachfahren sind noch im 20. Jahrhundert als Zirkusleute nachweisbar. Die Gattin des Carl Price entstammte der noch älteren und bedeutsameren französischen Zirkusfamilie Franconi. - Das Plakat listet die einzelnen zu erwartenden Vorführungen auf: Eingangs vier verschiedene Vorführungen am Seil, darauf folgend Tänze der Kinder des John Price, die Gebrüder Johannowitsch werden "außerordentliche Leistungen produzieren" (dazu wohl die beiden schwarzgrundigen Holzschnitte, die zwei halbnackte Herren bei einer Kraftnummer zeigen), schließlich wird auch noch ein Theaterstück aufgeführt. Die Truppe bestand wohl fast ausschließlich aus Mitgliedern der Familie Price, es werden neben John (Johann) genannt: Wilhelm, Victoire, Hanna (Hanne Sophie Price; 1833-1905, als Balletttänzerin berühmt geworden) , Clara, Rosa (Rosetta Sophie Caroline Lewin; 1810-1887), Louis, Elise und Ferdinand. - Mit leichter horizontaler Falte.

      Philadelphia: Printed by C. Sherman, 1845. Thick quarto. Contemporary green morocco stamped in gilt, expertly rebacked with original backstrips preserved (except second volume, which is rebacked in matching style), spines in six compartments, richly gilt, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Slight offsetting on the large folding maps, several neatly repaired along folds. A very good set. One of the great rarities of Pacific voyages, here in a mixed set of the true first edition and the first quarto edition of the narrative of the first great scientific expedition sponsored by the government of the United States. The first three volumes of the present set consist of the special Sherman edition of 100 copies, which is the true first edition and was issued for private distribution. The final two volumes are of the Lea and Blanchard printing, which was limited to 150 copies and was preceded only by the Sherman edition. The Lea and Blanchard edition is on the same format as the Sherman edition, and differs only in the preliminary material. The United States Exploring Expedition circumnavigated the globe under the command of Charles Wilkes between the summer of 1838 and the summer of 1842 (for a detailed account of the voyage, see the sources cited below). In July 1842, almost immediately upon his return, Wilkes began work on the narrative, drawing on all of the data and logs assembled by the members of the expedition. This took two years, but by August 1844 the first volume was in the press, and the whole set was ready for binding by the end of the year. The first "Sherman edition," in large quarto format, consisted of only 100 copies for the use of the government, and is easily distinguished by the Sherman imprint of 1844. The "Lea and Blanchard" quarto edition soon followed, and was probably off the presses before the end of 1844 (even though the volumes carry an imprint dated 1845). In fact, the verso of the titlepage of the two Lea and Blanchard volumes notes that the text was in fact printed by Sherman. Both the Sherman and the Lea and Blanchard editions present the text in five volumes, accompanied by an atlas volume of five maps. Those maps are here bound into the front of the fourth text volume. Of the 100 copies printed of the Sherman edition, twenty- five were later destroyed in the Lea and Blanchard fire, sixty-three copies were distributed to foreign governments and federal or state libraries in the United States, and only three were distributed to private individuals. Haskell, in preparing his bibliography of the publications of the expedition, was able to locate over thirty sets in libraries in the United States, but the Sherman edition virtually never appears on the market. The only sets we know of on the market in recent years are one from the Carlsmith collection, acquired from Howell, sold in 1985, and now in an Australian library, and two other sets sold by us in the past ten years. Of the 150 copies printed of the Lea and Blanchard edition, twenty-five were reserved for private distribution by Wilkes, and the remaining copies were offered for sale to individuals at sixty dollars per set. Haskell was able to locate only seven sets in libraries in the United States. A prime opportunity to obtain a set consisting of the two rarest printings of the most important American naval expedition of the 19th century. HASKELL, UNITED STATES EXPLORING EXPEDITION 1, 2A, 17A.
