Wallin, Georg August (Yrjö Aukusti).
1845. 8vo. VII, (1), 126 pp., final blank f. With lithogr. map at the end of the volume; printed notes of a Bedouin melody within the text. Green half calf with contemp. marbled boards and giltstamped title to rebacked spine. First edition, published posthumously. - Extremely rare account of Wallin's principal journey through Arabia, unknown to most bibliographers: "It was not until two years after his death", writes Henze, "that the report of his first (and most important) journey (performed in 1845, a year before the appearance of the first volume of Carl Ritter's 'Arabia') was published". This refers to the English "Narrative of a Journey from Cairo to Medina and Mecca", which was printed in the Journal of the Royal Geographical Society in 1854. In fact, an extensive account of the first leg of this highly significant journey was first given to the world in December 1853, but little more than a year after the author's passing. Of this Swedish-language book, edited by Berndt Otto Schauman, less than two dozen copies are known worldwide, 12 of which are in Finnish libraries (the remainder distributed throughout Sweden [4 copies], Germany [2 copies], Denmark, France, and the U.S.A. [a single copy each]). In contrast with the later JRGS publication, the present work includes an appendix rendering Arabic terms and phrases that occur throughout the text in the original language and script. - Like his more famous contemporary J. L. Burckhardt, Wallin was fluent in Arabic and, in local costume, was capable of passing for a scholarly sheikh. Indeed, the two explorers are often co … [Click Below for Full Description]

By Order of the Secretary of the Navy
C. Alexander, Printer, Washington DC 1845 - Original softcover publication - no a bound library edition. Hand sewn and annotated with a drawing of an anchor showing who the booklet belonged to: Inscription on cover reads: " William W. Wood - Chief Engineer - W. S. Navy - Washington D.C. March 12, 1845". From the Wikipedia webpage for William W. Wood: Chief Engineer William W. W. Wood (1818¿31 August 1882) was an engineer of the United States Navy, who served as Engineer-in-Chief of the Bureau of Steam Engineering from 1873 until 1877. He was appointed to the Navy from New York on 15 March 1845 with the rank of chief engineer. He spent his first two years in the navy stationed at the Pensacola Navy Yard, Florida. He briefly did special duty at Boston, and then from 1850 to 1853 served on the paddle-sloop Saranac in the Home Squadron. From 1854 to 1857, Wood superintended the constructions of the engines of the screw-frigate Merrimack at Cold Spring, New York. His next appointment was for two years serving in the screw-sloop Lancaster on the Pacific Squadron. From 1862 to 1866 Wood spent most of his time on special duty in Philadelphia, New York and Boston. Wood was assigned to the United States Naval Academy from 1866 to 1867. Wood was Inspector of Machinery Afloat in New York from 1870 to 1872. Wood was promoted to engineer-in-chief in 1872, and was appointed Chief of the Bureau of Steam Engineering on 20 March 1873, his successor was appointed on 3 March 1877. Wood was assigned to special duty in 1878, and was placed on the retired list on 31 May 1880. As noted on the Wiki … [Click Below for Full Description]

[UTOPIAN COMMUNITIES] [19th-c. BROADSIDES - UTOPIAN COMMUNITIES] GITTINGS, M.D. 19t19
Zanesville, OH: Courier Office, 1845. Auction of the remains of the Columbian Phalanx (also known as the Columbian Association), a Fourierist commune near Zanesville, Ohio which appears (not atypically) to have survived only about a year; it was one of at least thirty such Fourierist experiments launched in America in the decade of the Forties -- the first, most famous and most successful having been Brook Farm in Massachusetts. Bestor (Backwoods Utopias ) notes that the Columbian Phalanx absorbed the population of the nearby Beverley Association in 1845, though the additional population appears to have done little to make the phalanx more viable. The timing of the sale - the day after Christmas - strikes us as somewhat cruel, though perhaps the community's creditors had been holding out for a Christmas miracle. Rare; OCLC one location only (AAS); MORGAN (Ohio Imprints) 4637. Letterpress broadside, 16-1/2" x 12-1/4" (ca 42cm x 32cm). Twenty-seven lines of text in single column below headline, signed in type "M.D. Gittings" at end of text. Franked on verso. Old folds; worn through at fold-lines with brief loss to text but no loss of sense, a few small triangular losses to extremities; complete and Good.

Artist: Bibliographisches Institut NA ; issued in: ; date: ca, 1845. - technic: Steel engraving; colorit: colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 11,5 x 18,5; - description : Very decorative souvenier page of Munich, sourrounded by 10 views of important and historique buildings and places.Munich- Munchen, the name of the city is derived from the Old/Middle High German term Munichen, meaning "by the monks". It derives from the monks of the Benedictine order who ran a monastery at the place that was later to become the Old Town of Munich; hence the monk depicted on the city's coat of arms. Munich was first mentioned in 1158. From 1255 the city was seat of the Bavarian Dukes. Black and gold ? the colours of the Holy Roman Empire ? have been the city's official colours since the time of Ludwig the Bavarian, when it was an imperial residence. Following a final reunification of the Wittelsbachian Duchy of Bavaria, previously divided and sub-divided for more than 200 years, the town became the country's sole capital in 1506. Catholic Munich was a cultural stronghold of the Counter-Reformation and a political point of divergence during the resulting Thirty Years' War, but remained physically untouched despite an occupation by the Protestant Swedes; as the townsfolk would rather open the gates of their town than risk siege and almost inevitable destruction. Like wide parts of the Holy Roman Empire, the area recovered slowly economically. Having evolved from a duchy's capital into that of an electorate (1623), and later a sovereign kingdom (1806), Munich has been a c … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dumas, Alexandre
Brussels: Société belge de librairie Hauman, 1845. First Edition. Cloth. Very good. 7 vols. in 3. 1st edition (in French), 1st issue (16mo. in 7 vols.). This 1st edition is the real deal, unquestionably preceding Baudry's Paris edition, and Hauman's own 2nd edition (18mo. in 10 vols.), the 3 other 1845 Brussels editions, and all the rest. Any arguments against its priority test logic. Munro clearly states that this edition, and this issue of it, is the 1st of all, and no one has cogently tendered any other sequence. 19th century purple cloth, spines faded to tan, very good, bound without half-titles but otherwise whole, with Romanesque Aventure de ma vie, par le Bibliophile Jacob, filling out the final 93 pages of vol. VII, as issued. Compelling, appealing, and scarce, and though this edition's priority over the Paris edition is sure, some collectors would pay 20 times our price for Baudry's edition and swear it is the only one bestowing pride of ownership, while others would insist that 1st is always best. And that's because each of us looks at any given book, and sees what we see, and what we see is not always the same. Like sometimes I look into the face of our dog (Lily the Kid) and see fatalistic sadness and wistful anguish, when all she is really doing is staring at the lamp waiting for a circling moth to run out of gas. Twenty Years After is the first sequel to The Three Musketeers, set in the political upheaval of 1648-1649, and I'll maintain it's the most historical of Dumas' historical romances. It opens during 2 civil wars, and only the charisma of the Musketeers … [Click Below for Full Description]

"The views are twelve in number and have been selected as representing some of the scenes and objects most familiar to those who are acquainted with Ceylon, and, as being, from their associations, most likely to prove interested to the generality of them; and, at the same time, every opportunity has been seized to illustrate costumes, as well as the habits and occupations of the natives" (Preface).

Delécluze, E.J.
Paris: Jules Labitte, 1845. First Edition. 2 vols. 1st edition of the first direct translation of Le Chanson de Roland into modern French, not one of those half-hearted revampings corrupted with the affectations of editors seeking petty immortality by trying to impose their own graffiti. It is the oldest known major work of French literature, an anonymous, 1,000 year old ambition merging history and myth. And also in this edition of it are excerpts from other epics, including The Song of the Saxons, and some parts of King Arthur. Contemporary 1/4 French calf, spine tips chipped, light wear to corners, a 3/4" X 1/2" skinned streak to the vol. II board (see picture), foxing mostly at margins, else very good, uncut (!), not unattractive, and complete with half-titles, fly-titles, contents and the 6 page ad. It looks like OCLC locates 4 dozen copies, in varying condition, and it isn't even that scarce, however when it's complete and uncut, it's as scarce as husbands who vacuum. The Song of Roland is a 4,000 line heroic poem of warfare, parlay, deceit, withdrawal, treachery, ambush, loyalty, bravery, valor, revenge, victory, trial, and justice, in that order. It was written between 1040 and 1115, but it's set during the first medieval renaissance in 778 (the Carolingian era) when Charlemagne's Franks defeated the Spanish Muslims at the battle of Roncesvalles. 9 somewhat contemporary manuscripts are known in various forms of Old French. The earliest of them (written in Anglo-Norman, ca. 1129-1165) is now at The Bodleian Library (Oxford). The author is unknown. A name (Turold) is … [Click Below for Full Description]
