Dumas, Alexandre
Chapman and Hall, London, 1846. Octavo (pages measure 220 x 139 mm): iv, 464; iv, 464; complete with all 20 illustrations by M. Valentin. Contemporary three-quarter morocco over marbled boards, signed "C. H. May. Binder. London." Internal contents generally Very Good with some minor foxing and soiling. A few leaves and plates with tears professionally closed. This remained the standard English text until the Buss translation was released in 1996. Along with The Three Musketeers, The Count of Monte Cristo cemented Dumas' reputation as France's premier adventure writer and a forefather of popular fiction. "First to sheer narrative power -- Dumas was a master of narrative -- and secondly to the theme. It is a story for all time, a 19th-century version of 'The Arabian Nights,' a gorgeous piece of escapism from the drudgery of daily life. The glamorous figure of Dantes, who triumphs over injustice and with his limitless wealth and power can control Destiny, punish his enemies and reward his friends, is an ideal which stirs all men's repressed longings for and fantasies of personal greatness" (Sudley). Yet The Count of Monte Cristo offers more than a sprawling tale of revenge. Through its web of literary references, most notably to Plato's Allegory of the Cave and Dante's Divine Comedy, the novel participates in the tradition of the epic hero; and it traces Edmund Dantes' progress from his fall and path through the hell of Chateau d'If, as he makes his way through revenge and temptation to enter a new life marked by forgiveness and generosity. As it concludes, Dumas leaves his re … [Click Below for Full Description]

1846. Not in McDade [Trial]. Tirrell, Albert J, Defendant. The Trial of Albert J. Tirrell, Charged with the Murder of Mrs. Maria A. Bickford. Before the Suprteme Court in Boston. Boston: Daily Mail Report-Full and Complete, [1846]. 37 pp. Text in parallel columns. Portraits. Illustrations. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/4"). Disbound stab-stitched pamphlet in pictorial wrappers, rear wrapper lacking. Portrait of Tirrell on front wrapper, depiction of crime scene to verso; portrait of Bickford on p.37. Light soiling, small chip to upper corner of front wrapper, moderate toning, light foxing to a few leaves. * Only edition. "The murder of a harlot seems to lend a special interest to a case which is measurable by the many publications which ensue. (...) The Tirrell case is one of the triumphs of Rufus Choate, who convinced the jury that his client did not cut the throat of Mrs. Bickford, or, if he did, he did it in his sleep. The defense of somnambulism by Choate might well join that other classic of defense put forth by Delphin Michael Delmas, who as counsel for Harry K. Thaw pleaded 'dementia Americana'" (McDade). Our 37-page account is not among the 8 accounts in McDade, which lists a similar account with 32 pages. OCLC locates 11 copies, 3 in law libraries, (Harvard, University of Missouri, Yale).

London: Virtue & Co, 1846. The Art-Union Monthly Journal Of The Fine Arts Decorative & Ornamental Volume The Eighth 1846 The first Journal ever to include photographs on its pagesIn the spring of 1846 William Henry Fox Talbot provided probably over 6000 original Talbotype images to the Art Union journal in a promotional effort which today is largely overlooked. The images were published to popularise his photographic method and the publication was the first journal in the world to include photographs. Due largely to the haste of production, today, the images are often badly faded and this has contributed to the poor reputation of the feat. The photograph is of the 'The Palace of Justice at Rouen from Nature' and is large measuring 20.5 cm x 17 cm, comes with the original title on a brown strip to the margin which is always lacking, and on verso the original sticker saying 'Patent Talbotype or Sun Pictures'. A rare surviving example in very good condition. ________________________________ Published: London: J. S.

EXCEPTIONALLY FINE PUBLISHER'S PRESENTATION BINDING of black morocco, covers paneled gilt with leaf and floral tools, the spine in 6 compartments richly gilt (one lettered), yellow-coated endpapers, edges gilt; extremities lightly rubbed. Quarter black morocco slipcase. (64F10C) FIRST EDITION, THE JAY T. SNIDER COPY. IN A FINE PRESENTATION BINDING, INSCRIBED BY THE EDITOR, J. WATSON WEBB IN EACH VOLUME "To W. S. Stell from his friend J. Watson Webb." Stell (1800-1863) was a Philadelphia merchant banker who was based in Manchester, England, at the firm of Crafts and Stell. The account is based on the travels of Captain William Drummond Stewart, a Scottish nobleman, although it is believed that Webb himself wrote it. During the winter of 1836-1837, Stewart met the young American artist Alfred Jacob Miller whom he invited to accompany him to a fur trade rendezvous, a meeting held annually among traders, Native Americans, and Rocky Mountain trappers. Before reaching their destination at Horse Creek (near the present-day border of Colorado and Wyoming), they traveled northwest along the Kansas River to the Platte, passing such landmarks as Scott's Bluff and Chimney Rock. The rendezvous concluded, they headed for the Wind River Range of the Rockies in Wyoming, where they spent time hunting before returning to St. Louis in the fall of 1837. The meeting resulted in the present account and in Miller's comprehensive paintings of trappers and Native Am … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ein Organ für die Mainzer Karnevalsbestrebungen [Mainz carnival paper: an organ for the Mainz carneval effort]. Vols. I-VI (of VII published), bound in two volumes. Mainz: Wirth, 1841-1846.

Later brown calf over four raised bands; spine labels; 128; 112; 1, [1] 11-132 (complete!); 84, 23, [1]; 126, [1], 16; and 136 pp. Occasional light foxing and spotting; a few leaves with smaller closed tears; overall about very good. Nearly complete run of the most important German carneval periodical and a significant document of the German "Vormärz" period. After the first two years, Narrhalla became the brainchild of its second editor, Ludwig Kalisch (1814-1882), a German Jewish writer and publisher who also authored most of the articles. Aside from an outlet for more light-hearted humor, carneval journals such as this were an important forum for critizicing the repressive and feudalist aspects of German society, as well as lampooning its strict censorship laws. Kalisch's witty, caustic satire provoked the censors as early as 1843, and Narrhalla was temporarily forbidden in 1844. As revolutionary movements swept across Europe, Kalisch defended ever more clearly such rights as freedom of press, equality before the law, equal treatment for Jews, and other liberties. In 1848, the journal was shuttered by the censors. After the failed German Revolution of 1848, the journal remained prohibited for a decade; only beginning in 1857, a similar series began to appear.

Braunschweig, Oehme und Müller, 1846. Bemerkungen: Eine insbesondere in den mit noch leuchtenden Farben (teil)-kolorierte Lithographietafeln vollständige und sehr gut erhaltene 2. Ausgabe dieses Standardwerks der Holz- und Forstwirtschaft aus den Jahren des Historismus, in denen gerade die Kunst der Holzverarbeitung in Form von exquisiter Möbelschreinerei eine Hochzeit hatte und noch jegliches heute längst schon vergessene Gehölz in seinem Wert und Nutzen bekannt war. Alle Gehölze sind in lateinischer und deutscher Bezeichnung dargeboten. Der Inventar-Band vereinigt fortlaufende 25 Hefte, die der Verfasser insgesamt als den abgeschlossenen ersten Teil eines Gesamtwerkes auffasst und er auf der letzten Seite einen zweiten Teil mit amerikanischen Holzarten ankündigt, von dem aber nichts weiteres bis heute bekannt ist und der auch wahrscheinlich nie erschienen ist, zumal schon die inhaltsidentische 1. Auflage von 1826 gleiches ankündigte. Von besonders informativem Niveau sind die ausführlichen Beschreibungen des „Nutzens“ eines jeden Gehölzes, wobei sowohl die jeweilige Verwendung des Holzes als auch die von Blüten und Blätter der Gehölze einen heute verlorenen Kulturschatz an Holz- und Pflanzenwissen in der Haus- und Hofwirtschaft darstellt: „Nichts weniger läßt sich auch aus dem Safte dieses Ahorns ein Rum ähnliches starkes Getränk, so wie ein guter Syrup, Zucker und Essig bereiten, auf deren Fabrication in den bedrückten Zeiten , mancher speculative Kopf Nachdenken, Zeit, Mühe und Kosten verwandte, welche letztere, bei Entbehrung der zu großen Versuchen nöthigen Ahorn-Wäld … [Click Below for Full Description]

Terminal ads announce the publication in parts of Dombey and Son, and the bound volume of Oliver Twist. All of Smith's qualifying "internal flaws" not noted as being in "some copies" are accounted for. Dickens wrote The Battle of Life during a period of recuperation needed after illness attributed to over-working, despite being seriously indisposed he managed to complete the work, while working on Dombey and Son, though it was not as successful as his other Christmas books thus far.

BERLIOZ, Hector 1803-1869
1846. A "légende dramatique" in four parts to a libretto by the composer and Almire Gandonnière after Gérard de Nerva's French translation of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Faust, the Damnation of Faust was given its first concert performance in Paris at the Opéra-Comique (Salle Favart) on December 6, 1846. Berlioz was touring Europe in 1853, as he had been doing for years following a series of career setbacks in the 1840s. A group of musicians in Weimar were advocating for Berlioz in Germany, including a new production of Benvenuto Cellini led by Liszt in 1852. Although success was minimal, his reception there was better than anywhere else, and so it is that he came to Brunswick and Hanover in the fall of 1853 for performances of Faust. The performance referred to in the present letter did, indeed, take place as planned, on November 8, 1853, with Joachim as concertmaster. The audience was small but enthusiastic, and the entire German tour was a much-needed success.The violinist Joseph Joachim (1831-1907) studied under Mendelssohn in Leipzig and Liszt in Weimar, becoming concertmaster in Hanover in 1853. His presence there is credited with a vast improvement in the orchestra, a difference Berlioz was well-aware of and experienced firsthand. See Cairns: Berlioz, Servitude and Greatness, p. 519. A significant letter, offering insight into both Berlioz's relationship with Joachim and his concert preparation.. 4 pp. of a bifolium (ca. 135 x 207 mm).

Unterstrichen wird diese hohe Quote durch den Vergleich mit den vorgängigen Perioden: in den zehn Jahren davor wurde im Kanton Bern die Todesstrafe bloss an drei, 1831-1841 an vier Personen vollzogen. Gleichzeitig verfolgte Bern auch die restriktivste Begnadigungspolitik: zwischen 1851 und 1861 wurde nur gerade bei zwei Personen die Todesstrafe in lebenslängliche Haft umgewandelt. In den übrigen Kantonen der Schweiz erfolgte nach 1848 bei Todesurteilen meistens eine Begnadigung; die Todesstrafe wurde nur noch selten vollstreckt.

[ILLINOIS IMPRINTS - ELECTIONS OF 1846]
Rock Island, IL: The Upper Mississippian and Rock Island Republican, 1846. Ephemera. Unrecorded broadside extra, published to promote the candidacy of John J. Turner, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Illinois' Sixth District. Begins with a report of the results of the 1846 Democratic County Convention, followed by three anonymous articles extolling Turner's abilities and background. Though nowhere attributed, the author of these articles (and of Turner's eventual victory) was likely the paper's editor and proprietor, Harmon G. Reynolds, who is characterized in a contemporary biography as "...one of the most prominent, able and influential of the old settlers here...a lawyer by profession...[and] a very prominent Mason" (H.F. Kett & Co, The Past and Present of Rock Island County Illinois. Chi:1877). Turner won the election and served a single term in Congress, later continuing his career in politics in the Illinois legislature. The Upper Mississipian (according to the same source) began in 1840 as a staunch Whig newspaper, under the proprietorship of one Daniel Crist; Reynolds assumed control of the paper in 1844 and changed its name to The Upper Mississippian and Rock Island Republican: "The name of Daniel Crist is as indissolubly associated with [the paper's] early history as a Whig paper, as that of Hon. Holmon [sic] G. Reynolds is with its close, as a Democratic paper." If Reynolds' choice of the title "Republican" for what was essentially a Democratic Party mouthpiece seems strange, it is worth remembering that the concept of polit … [Click Below for Full Description]
