        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'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.

        THE CHIMES: A GOBLIN STORY

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1845. First edition. Near Fine. Uncommon first state vignette title page with the publisher's imprint within the illustration (Smith II.5; Sadlier 683). Small 8vo: (viii), 175, [1]; complete. A lovely, Near Fine copy with minor soiling to the cloth and the first signature a bit proud, otherwise clean, and bright without any repair or restoration.& & Dickens' second Christmas book, which continues his social commentaries on the poor. Structured similarly to "A Christmas Carol," the main character, Trotty, witnesses an alternative future through a series of visions and ultimately is given a second chance to put things right. "The Chimes" was a bestseller in its day, but has since been eclipsed by "A Christmas Carol." Quite scarce in this condition. Near Fine.

        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.

        Macrizi`s Geschichte der Copten. Aus den Handschriften zu Gotha und Wien mit Übersetzung und Anmerkungen. Aus dem dritten Bande der Abhandlung der Königlichen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften zu Göttingen

      Göttingen, Dieterich, 1845.. 142 S., 1 Bl., 35 paginierte Bll. mit arabischem Text. Lwd. d. Zt. 26,5 x 21,5 cm. 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.

First leaf detached, but present. Short closed tear to front panel. & & The 1845 Proclamation of the Twelve Apostles was a controversial document addressed to the kings of the world, the President of the United States, and other authority figures, and clearly states that the authority of God’s kingdom rests with the Latter-day Saints.& & According to Crawley: "The proclamation declares that the kingdom of God is established on the earth, that its authority rests with the Latter-day Saints, and that all must repent of their sins and be baptized into the kingdom. To the kings and rulers of the earth it says, '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.' 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'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."
