        Biographical and Critical Miscellanies

      London - Richard Bentley, 1845. London - Richard Bentley, 1845 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. William H. Prescott&#39;s Biographical and Critical Miscellanies. Direct from the library at Newton Hall, the 18th century country house and estate in Northumberland, with a pencil shelfmark to the front free-endpaper, and the armorial bookplate of S. E. Widdrington to the front pastedown. Bound in cloth with gilt lettering. First Edition. Black and white frontis with tissue guard. Essays include Irving&#39;s Conquest of Granada, Cervantes, Sir Walter Scott, Moliere, Italian Narrative Poetry, and Scottish Song. The following Essays, with a single exception, have been selected from contributions originally made to the North American Review. They are purely of a literary character; and as they have little reference to local or temporary topics, and as the Journal in which they appeared, though the most considerable in the United States, is not widely circulated in Great Britain, it has been thought that a republication of the Articles might have some novelty and interest for the English reader - Preface. William Hickling Prescott (17961859) was an American historian, known for his books The History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella the Catholic and The History of the Conquest of Mexico. In all his works he displayed great research, impartiality, and an admirable narrative power. Prescott was a man of amiable and benevolent character, and enjoyed the friendship of many of the most distinguished men in Europe as well as in America. Samuel Edward Widdrington (formerly Cook), 1787 - 1856, was an English writer. Having served as a Captain in the Royal Navy, he lived for some years in Spain. He served as High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1854. He was a fellow of the Royal Society, and the Royal Geographical Society. By royal license he assumed the name Widdrington, and purchased the moiety in 1842. He inherited the Newton Hall estate from his father, Joseph Cook. Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The inner hinges are very slightly strained. There is only some mild wear to the extremities, with just some mild sunning to the spine, and slight bumping. Internally the pages have very mild browning to the page edges, with the occsaional spot,becoming prominent to the first few pages. Overall the condition is very good..

John Brown of Haddington (1722 1787), was a Scottish divine and author. His works include The Self-Interpreting Bible, The Dictionary of the Bible, and A General History of the Christian Church. The Self Interpreting Bible was Brown&#39;s most significant work, and it remained in print (edited by others), until well into the twentieth century. The objective of providing a commentary for ordinary people was very successful. The idea that the Bible was self-interpreting involved copious marginal references, especially comparing one scriptural statement with another. Brown also provided a substantial introduction to the Bible, and added an explication and reflections for each chapter. With blank family register to front. Coloured title pages to some of the gospels, presumed complete. Condition: In a decorative morocco binding with gilt detailing. Externally sound, with some rubbing and some marks to the boards.

        La Rigolbochomanie Croquis Lithographiques & Choregraphiques

      Paris: Bureau du Charivari et Chez Martinet, 1845. Paris: Bureau du Charivari et Chez Martinet, 1845. Vernier, Charles. La Rigolbochomanie Croquis Lithographiques & Choregraphiques. Paris: Bureau du Charivari et Chez Martinet, (ca. 1845). Original orange boards. 30 lithographs printed in black. Front hinge restored, occasional foxing, not noticeable except for title page. Rigolbochomanie satirizes the can-can craze as it swept Parisian women who, to the amusement of men, attempted to emulate the brilliant and agile Rigolboche. Since the can-can was also considered a risque and shocking dance in a time when "an excessive display of ankle was considered dissolute" (Oxford Intl. Encyclopedia of Dance), this work documents the willingness of contemporary women to assert their sexual identity, in spite of accepted mores. Rigolboche (born Amelie Marguerite Badel) was a much celebrated music-hall performer of the mid 19th century. She was one of the first professional dancers to popularize the "can-can," and she was certainly the most accomplished. Originally, the can-can was a couple's dance in which the woman would flirtatiously kick her leg as high as possible and fling open her flaring petticoat. When performed by a professional, the can-can is a "complicated and technically demanding dance. Its most spectacular step is a pirouette on one foot, with the other foot grasped around the ankle and raised to eye level" (Oxford). The artist, Charles Vernier, was primarily a theatrical illustrator in the employ of "Charivari" between the years of 1845 and 1860. References: Leslie II, 541: DDM 2557.

        Economic Chess Board, With a Complete Set of Chess Men, Peculiary Adapted by its Compact Form for Carrying in the Pocket and for Promoting the Study of the Most Intellectual and Noble of Games. Especially Suited to the Amateur of Chess Problems. Invented by Dr. Roget

      London: De La Rue & Co., Registered Nov. 10, 1845 [but ca. 1850s-1860s?].. London:: De La Rue & Co., Registered Nov. 10,, 1845 [but ca. 1850s-1860s?].. A later edition.. A few slight small stains to the board and to the slipcase; some minor wear; in fine condition.. Folding chessboard of gilt-patterned glazed yellow paper over card stock, printed in red, approx. 5.75 x 3.75 inches folded (5.75 x 7.25 open), chess board interior of heavy paper strips printed in black and red. Paper chess pieces printed in black and red. Original slipcase with gilt-patterned glazed paper over card stock. The industrious Peter Mark Roget (1779-1869) is best remembered for his Thesaurus but was also known both for his restless inventiveness and his skill with chess puzzles (see DNB). This attractive early example of the Roget Economic Chess Board is fine example of both mid-Victorian design in gilt-printed glazed paper and of the Whiggish insistence on self-improvement and economic utility; with this model, the chess pieces are slips rather than the button-style pieces (as is sometimes seen with De La Rue traveling models). The bibliography of the Roget Economic Chess Board is a trifle obscure (to this cataloguer at least) as Longmans appears to have published it (and advertised it heavily in its publications) ca. 1846-1847, though at least one reference in a Staunton column from mid-1846 notes De La Rue as the maker of the board. De La Rue also later published "improved" travel chess sets without the Roget "Economic" brand.
