Corners slightly worn with cardboard showing at tips, edges slightly rubbed, upper cover slightly faded, gilt slightly tarnished but still bright, a few tiny scrapes to lower cover, neat inscription dated 1869 on preserved orginal front endpaper, a little faint foxing to title page and some margins, 10 mm (½") closed tear to lower margin edge of plates at page 2, at page 11 and at page 12, another smaller to margin fore-edge of plate at page 4, none near image and all neatly repaired on blank side.

      dalla Stamperia dell?Iride 1845-1868 Cronisti e Scrittori Sincroni Napoletani editi e inediti ordinati per serie. Raccolti e pubblicati da Giuseppe Del Re con discorsi proemiali, versioni, note e comenti dè Signori Fabbricatore, Gatti, Rocco, Volpicella, Corcia, Minieri Riccio e dell?Editore. Napoli, dalla Stamperia dell?Iride, 1845-1868. Due volumi in 8vo; pp.VII, pp.618, 1n.nn.; 766, 1n.nn. 10 tavole più volte spieghevoli al volume I. Mezza pergamena con angoli, titolo e fregi in nero ai dorsi. Tracce d?umido ai piatti. Copertine originali conservate. Il volume primo dedicato ai cronisti e scrittori del periodo Normanno, il volume secondo ai cronisti e scrittori Svevi. L?autore in origine intendeva pubblicare una Raccolta divisa in tre parti: l?una di cronisti generali, l?altra di cronisti anteriori alla Monarchia, la terza di cronisti e storici particolari da Ruggiero in poi. ?La terza parte della Raccolta dalla quale ha cominciamento la pubblicazione comprendera? quegli scrittori che sincroni sono denomimati e questi verranno ordinatamente distribuiti in cinque periodi che sono il normanno, lo svevo, l?angioino, l?aragonese, il viceregnale facendo punto allo stabilimento della borbonica dinastia?. Dopo la pubblicazione nel 1845 del primo volume che comprendeva i Normanni l?opera monumentale intrapresa dal Del Re venne interrotta a causa delle vicende politiche e il suo forzato esilio. ?La pubblicazione fu ripresa dopo vent?anni ed un secondo volume dedicato ai Cronisti e gli Scrittori Svevi fu apparecchiato e condotto quasi al termine. Gli altri volumi sarebbero seguiti di mano in mano confidando l?editore che niuna sciagura potesse oramai attraversare il suo disegno. Fallaci speranze, poichè nel 1864 un repentino malore lo trasse a morte in Torino?. Il secondo volume fu pubblicato per cura dei congiunti. Opera rara.

Corners lightly worn, cloth starting to separate at rear hinge. A few scattered spots of foxing, but generally quite clean internally. Very good. The Senate issue of the Fremont report, certainly one of the most important single pieces of Western Americana.

The maps include the huge folding "Map of.Oregon & North California in the Years 1843-44," with many lakes and rivers traced in color.

All volumes finely bound in full red polished calf by Bayntun (Riviere), with gilt-ruled panels to the front and rear covers, five raised bands to the spine, contrasting leather bands to the spines, full gilt titles and decorations to the spines, all edges gilt, gilt inner turn-ins, marbled endpapers, cloth ribbons as bookmarks. Each volume has minor wear to the spine head and tail, some rubbing and slight chipping to the spine, slight scuff to the covers. Each volume with fresh and clean pages, excepting the minor scattered spotting on the color plates and their surrounding pages in "Christmas Carol," very slight spotting to the title vignette pages in "Chimes," and the hint of smudging to the front fly leaves in "Battle of Life." Overall, a very attractive and near fine set, housed together in a red slipcase with only minor wear to the corners. Smith II 5, 8, 9. The Christmas Books is the name given to Charles Dickens' mid-nineteenth century series formatted after and including his 1843 masterpiece, A Christmas Carol. Each novel in the series is marked by a strong moral and social message, the transformation of a hardened character to a more caring individual, and, of course, the holiday season. While each novel is unique and has its own attributes, none of the works achieved the critical success and timelessness of A Christmas Carol. Unusual for Dickens, each of the Christmas Books were published first as novels without prior serial publication. Additionally, each of the novels is illustrated in black and white, with the exception of A Christmas Carol, which contains plates with color illustrations. This set of the Christmas Books contains the original publisher's cloth bindings bound into the back of the texts.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine. Illus. by Doyle, Richard; Landseer, Edwin; Leech, John; Maclise, Daniel; Tenniel, John; Stanfield, Clarkson; Stone, Frank.

        Anne Hathaway. Or Shakespeare in Love

      London; Richard Bentley. 1845, 1845. First edition. 8vo. 3 volumes. Attractively bound in contemporary half green morocco over marbled boards, gilt titles and decoration to spines, an expertly executed binding unfortunately unsigned. Minor edgewear to extremities, all three volumes in spectacularly good condition. Top edges gilt Internally clean and bright, marbled endpapers, bookplate to front pastedowns ("Otium sine literis mors est": Leisure without literature is death!) occasional light marginal soiling. Two instances of shallow marginal loss to volume two, in no way intruding upon the text. A very melodramatic, romantic and Victorian novel purporting to relate Shakespeare&#39;s domestic life with his wife (the one that only warranted a second best bed and no sonnets), it is occasionally described as "execrable" which seems a bit harsh, at the very least it is vividly descriptive albeit without any particular historical accuracy.

        Hier ist zu schaun die Historia fein, Vom Pastor und vom Schulmeisterlein." Flugblatt mit 12 Darstellungen

      Lithographie von H. Delius nach Julius Böhmer im Verlag Albert Schepeler, Berlin um 1845. 22x26.8 cm. - Wäscher, Flugbl. II, 28 - Brückmann 44 - Heidermann, König S. 246 - Karikatur auf evangelische Geistliche und Lehrer. In satirischer Form wird das gute Leben eines evangelischen Pastors dem harten Los des um die Bildung der Kinder bemühten Lehrers gegenübergestellt. In der Mitte des Blattes eine große Szene im Klassenraum mit Schulkindern und dem "Schulmeisterlein", der demütig und mit hängenden Schultern vor dem wohlbeleibten Pastor steht. Umgeben ist diese Darstellung von 10 kleineren, die je 5 Szenen aus dem Wohlleben des Herrn Pastors und seiner Familie und dem ärmlichen Leben des Schulmeisters zeigen. Unten kleine Darstellung in der der Lehrer statt des erbetenen höheren Lohnes einen Orden für seine Verdienste erhält. Alle Szenen in Bordüren."Das Blatt legt ein Zeugnis vom geringen gesellschaftlichen Ansehen des Lehrerstandes in jener Zeit ab." (Brückmann). Im Vormärz war die Einkommenssituation der Dorfschulmeister teils so schlecht, dass sie um überleben zu können, auch Tagelöhnerarbeiten übernahmen. "Die Not der Landschullehrer war so groß, daß gutgesinnte evangelische Geistliche ... den Antrag einbrachten, man möge die Steuerfreiheit der Geistlichen aufheben, um mit den eingehenden Geldern diese Not zu beseitigen. Man kann sich denken, daß dieser Vorschlag wenig Anklang fand und den Kampf der orthodoxen gegen die aufgeklärten Geistlichen noch verstärkte." (Wäscher). Für die Geschichte der Bildung und der evangelischen Kirche in Deutschland höchst interessantes Bilddokument. Schönes sauberes Blatt, unten links Prägestempel der Verlages.

Ibrahim-Hilmy II, 6. - Seltene erste Einzelausgabe dieser gelehrten philologischen Arbeit des Göttinger Orientalisten Ferdinand Wüstenfeld (1808-1899): "Sein Hauptamt war das des Bibliothekars, als akademischer Lehrer trat er wenig hervor. Seine Muße verwandte er auf das Arabische, worauf er sich mehr und mehr beschränkte, nachdem er anfangs die orientalischen Sprachen in weitem Umfang, z. B. auch das Sanskrit, in den Kreis seiner Studien gezogen hatte. Die Summe seiner litterarischen Leistungen ... ist erstaunlich, wenn man bedenkt, daß er ursprünglich von zarter Gesundheit war und außer in den Ferien bis Nachmittags um drei oder vier Uhr auf der Bibliothek zu thun hatte ... Seine Hauptthätigkeit war auf die Herausgabe arabischer Prosaisten gerichtet; einige davon hat er selber, in seiner sauberen, klaren Schrift, lithographirt. Vorzugsweise waren es Historiker und Geographen, die er edirte. So die älteste Biographie des Propheten Mohammed von Ibn Hischam, das historische Compendium des Ibn Kutaiba, die Chroniken der Stadt Mekka, die große Biographiensammlung des Ibn Challikan" (ADB LV, 139). - Rücken etwas lädiert. Stock- und braunfleckig.

To the kings and rulers of the earth it says, &#39;You are not only required to repent and obey the gospel...but you are also hereby commanded, in the name of Jesus Christ, to put your silver and your gold, your ships and steam-vessels, your railroad trains and your horses, chariots, camels, mules, and litters, into active use, for the fulfillment of these purposes.&#39; The American Indians, it asserts, are a remnant of the tribes of Israel and must be educated and civilized, for they are to assist in building the New Jerusalem in America while the Jews rebuild the old Jerusalem. It concludes with a series of one-sentence statements summarizing the fundamentals of Mormonism." Flake/Draper 1512. Crawley 285. British Imprints 25

        An original design for porcelain

      [Paris: 1845 or later]. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. 13 1/4 x 20 1/2 inches. 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&#39;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."
