        Die heilige Familie, oder Kritik der kritischen Kritik

      Frankfurt: Literarische Anstalt (J. Rütten), , 1845. Gegen Bruno Bauer & Consorten. Octavo (196 × 123 mm). Contemporary marbled boards, hand-written paper spine label. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Contemporary ownership inscription to free endpaper. Corners slightly worn. Occasional light spotting. A very good copy. Rare first edition of Marx's first published book, written when he was only 26. It is also the first book written in collaboration with Engels. In 1844, the first year of their friendship, Marx and Engels decided to write a critique of their former associates of the Young Hegelian school, whose views were still very popular in academic circles. Taking Critique of Critical Criticism as a working title, they agreed to co-author the foreword, and divided up the other sections between them. 'Engels dashed off his portion of twenty pages while still at the flat in the Rue Vanneau [in Paris], and then returned home to the Rhineland. He was "not a little surprised", several months later, to hear that the pamphlet was now … more than 300 pages and had been renamed The Holy Family' [a sarcastic reference (suggested, in fact, by their publisher) to the Bauer brothers and their supporters]. "If you have retained my name on the title page it will look rather odd," he pointed out. "I contributed practically nothing to it"' (Wheen, p. 85); ironically, it is Engels' name which comes first on the title. 'Considered as the production of young men, the book is a remarkable piece of critical work, alike by reason of its brilliant style and the great learning it displays … The importance of the work for us lies in the evidence it affords of the development of the theory of historical materialism in the mind of Marx. In place of the brief and almost vague hints which appeared in the Deutsch-Französische Jahrbücher articles, there is a more positive and emphatic tone' (Spargo, p. 75f). One later critic stated that the work 'contained some of the most brilliant revelations of its authors' genius, and that in the mastery of its form and the iron compactness of its language it belonged amongst the finest things Marx had ever written' (quoted by Mehring).

        An examination of President Edwards' inquiry into the freedom of the will.

      H. Hooker, Philadelphia 1845 - First edition of the author's first book, 12mo, pp. 234; touch of foxing but a fine copy in original brown cloth, gilt lettering on spine. Elisha Reynolds Potter's copy, with his ownership signature on the flyleaf crossed out by Rowland Hazard, a subsequent owner whose signature is on the half-title. Potter (1811-1882) was a Rhode Island congressman, educator, and jurist; Hazard (1801-1888) was a philologist and manufacturer of woolens in Rhode Island and his book Language: Its Connexion with the Present Condition and Future Prospects of Man (1836) was inspired by Sarah Helen Whitman and noticed favorably by William Ellery Channing. See DAB for both. Bledsoe, for his part, was a West Point graduate and a fellow student of Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis, and later a professor of mathematics and French, and later still, a colonel in the confederate army, and Jefferson Davis's assistant secretary of war. In 1867 he became the founder and first editor of the Southern Review, and was long an advocate for southern causes. The present book is a response to Jonathan Edwards' Careful and Strict Enquiry into the Modern Prevailing Notions of that Freedom of Will, Boston, 1754. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An original design for porcelain

      [Paris 1845 - Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some light soiling. A rare example of an original watercolour design for porcelain, 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."

        Antelope Shooting

      Henry Bohn, [London 1845 - Lithograph, coloured by hand, by McGahey, printed by Day & Haghe. Image size: 12 1/8 x 17 5/8 inches. A fine image from Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', one of the most important accounts of Native American life. "These beautiful and delicate little animals seem to be endowed, like many other 'gentle and sweet-breathing creatures', with an undue share of curiosity.; and the hunter who wishes to entrap them easily does so without taking the trouble of travelling after them. For this purpose, when he has been discovered by them, he has only to elevate above the tops of the grass, on the point of an arrow or his ramrod stuck in the ground, a little red or yellow flag, the lightness of which will keep it trembling in the wind, to which they are sure to advance, though with great coyness and caution; whilst the hunter lies close, at a little distance to the right or the left, with his rifle or bow in his hand. In the landscape view in this plate, (which. is a picture from Nature,) a striking resemblance is seen to the noble Park scenery in England; and the resemblance is forcibly heightened by the group that is dancing over it." Catlin summarized the Native American as "an honest, hospitable, faithful, brave, warlike, cruel, revengeful, relentless, -- yet honourable, contemplative and religious being". In a famous passage from the preface of his North American Indian Portfolio , Catlin describes how the sight of several tribal chiefs in Philadelphia led to his resolution to record their way of life: "the history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life shall prevent me from visiting their country and becoming their historian". He saw no future for either their way of life or their very existence, and with these thoughts always at the back of his mind he worked, against time, setting himself a truly punishing schedule, to record what he saw. From 1832 to 1837 he spent the summer months sketching the tribes and then finished his pictures in oils during the winter. The record he left is unique, both in its breadth and also in the sympathetic understanding that his images constantly demonstrate. A selection of the greatest of images from this record were published in the North American Indian Portfolio in an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible. The present image is one of the results of this publishing venture and is both a work of art of the highest quality and a fitting memorial to a vanished way of life.
