[Hale, Nathan]; Simms, J.R.
Albany: Printed by J. Munsell, 1846. Very good.. Original peach printed wrappers. 63, [1] pages. Wear to edges of wrappers, a few spots to front wrapper. First edition of this early short story for young readers about the first American spy, Nathan Hale, who is said to have declared "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country" before his execution by the British in 1776. After his defeat at the Battle of Long Island, George Washington's retreat was a significant blow to the morale of the Continental Army. Hale, just twenty-one years old, volunteered to gather intelligence on the position and resources of the British army around New York. He was caught and hanged, on this contemporary accounts agree. However, as the legend of this early patriotic darling grew in succeeding generations, Hale's story took on a cultural significance that encouraged retellings full of reverent mythologizing; this publication is an early example. Scarce in the original wrappers.

Collating xvi, 311, [1, blank]: complete, including all 60 handcolored floral lithographs.

Upon her marriage to landscape engineer John Claudius Loudon, Jane's career as a magazine writer took a shift toward botany.

Both a savvy business woman and accessible writer, Jane "tapped the ready Victorian market for books popularizing horticulture, botany, and natural history...and she brought information about the natural system of plant classification to popular audiences" (ODNB). Having had to educate herself in the field, she identified with readers who had little or no education; and she became popular for inviting them into the world of plants as a place for learning, cultivation, and exploration.

Réponse à la philosophie de la misère de M. Proudhon." / "The misery of philosophy". Proudhon (1809-1865) ist ein Wegbereiter des Anarchismus. Sein Satz "Eigentum ist Diebstahl" ist mit am bekanntesten. 1848 traf er Bakunin. Ab 1845 traf er auch mehrfach Karl Marx, der Proudhon als Mitstreiter und Redakteur gewinnen wollte. Proudhon wandte sich gegen den "Einsatz revolutionärer Gewalt, zum anderen warnte er Marx vor autoritären Mitteln und Zielsetzungen." (siehe wikipedia). "Auf Proudhons im Oktober 1846 erschienene Contradictions économiques (Untertitel: Philosophie des Elends) antwortete Marx 1847 mit dem Elend der Philosophie. Marx kritisierte scharf die philosophischen und wissenschaftlichen Unzulänglichkeiten, die in den in Frankreich stark verbreiteten Schriften des Autodidakten zu Tage träten ebenso war ihm dessen wiederkehrende moralisierende Betrachtungsweise zuwider (z. B. strebte Proudhon an Stelle ökonomischer Wertbestimmung der Arbeit nach der Bestimmung und Verwirklichung des gerechten Lohns).

1846. Unbound. Near Fine. A 20-page Autograph Letter Signed by George Francis Robert Harris, 3rd Baron, a Liberal politician and colonial administrator, and the Governor of Trinidad and Tobago from 1846 to 1853. A very long letter designated "Private," signed by "Harris" as Colonial Governor, and addressed to "My dear Sir" [almost certainly to Sir Benjamin Hawes, M. P. for Kinsale], discussing affairs of the Colony and specifically recent pamphlets on colonial affairs. Five octavo bifolium gatherings, dated Trinidad, Jany. 5, 1848 [but mis-dated, intended to be 1849]. A lengthy letter to Hawes discussing the pamphlet *Observations in Answer to Sir William Molesworth's Speech [Tuesday, July 25, 1848] on Colonial Expenditure and Government* by J. T. Danson, Esq., Barrister-at-Law, examining the issues raised about Colonial Government, the prevailing bias for the colored and black races against the planters, the subject of racial differences, the provision of education for the Negroes, landlords, the expenditure of colonial government, the high cost of living in the colonies, English influence, and much else. A wide-ranging letter, presumably written to Hawes who was made Under-Secretary of State for War and the Colonies in Lord John Russell's government. It was Harris who brought a system of local government to Trinidad, "which was indispensable to the efficient operation of an education system," but "Economic conditions precluded political and social reform, and such ambitious plans for … [Click Below for Full Description]

In 1845, Albert Jackson Tirrell [1824-1880] murdered Mary Ann Bickford [1824-1845], with whom he had a relationship, in the brothel where she lived. The case was scandalous and widely publicized, especially after Tirrell's lawyer, Rufus Choate [1799-1859], successfully argued that Tirrell was innocent because he had been sleepwalking during the killing. This was the first time a defense based on sleepwalking was used in a murder trial. The letters collected by her brother in the Authentic Life document Mary Ann's relationship with her husband, James Bickford, and her relationship with Tirrell, who is shown to have been abusive and manipulative.

Octavo (9 3/8 x 5 5/8 inches; 239 x 143 mm.). Collating [viii], 104, with ninety-two fine engraved plates with original tissue-guards, including frontispieces and pictorial titles. This work was first published from 1832-34 and contained eighty-six plates. Robert Seymour (1798-1836) was a popular and prolific illustrator and satirical cartoonist specializing in sporting subjects. "Influenced by the work of caricaturist George Cruikshank (1792-1878), Seymour gave up a career as a draftsman to devote himself to illustration, beginning under the pseudonym Short Shanks. By 1830, his political caricatures were widely circulated through the satirical journals Figaro in London and The Looking-Glass, or McLean's Monthly. Highly strung and extremely sensitive about his status as an artist, Seymour was emotionally and mentally unstable, having suffered a nervous breakdown in 1830. Despite the enormous output of Seymour, very little of his work was colored, his illustrations being mostly woodcuts or etchings. It will be remembered that Seymour originated the idea of a series of Cockney sporting sketches to be published in monthly parts. The idea was taken up by Chapman and Hall, who engaged Dickens to write the letterpress. From this grew the famous Pickwick Pape … [Click Below for Full Description]

New York Harper & Brothers, Publishers 1846. First Edition. Illustrated throughout with many textual illustrations and full page engraved plates. Large 8vo, handsomely bound at a later date to style in three-quarter tan morocco over marbled paper covered boards, the spine with raised bands, one compartment with a red lettering label gilt, another compartment lettered in gilt. [xi], 580, 8 ads. pp. A very pleasing and well preserved copy, the binding in excellent condition with virtually no evidence of use, the text-block with a bit of the inevitable foxing due to the paper used, the plates all quite pleasing even as there is the usual occasional evidence of non-obtrusive spotting here and there. FIRST EDITION. A book which is accepted as having had a significant influence upon Herman Melville and his authorship of Moby Dick, a cornerstone work of American literature published five years after the book here offered was published. Browne's is a fine work offering a great amount of information concerning the state of the whaling industry and whaling in general at a time when there were more than seven hundred whaling vessels belonging to the New England States and near twenty thousand men manning those ships. The author writes of the often administered cruelties visited upon the sailors and issues a demand for a confrontation with the perpetrators of crimes at sea. In his time, the author notes that scarcely a vessel arrived in port without notice of having suffered a mutiny. Thus the author tries to give an accurate account of the life of a whale-man at sea.

1846. Unbound. Near Fine. A 20-page Autograph Letter Signed by George Francis Robert Harris, 3rd Baron, a Liberal politician and colonial administrator, and the Governor of Trinidad and Tobago from 1846 to 1853. A very long letter designated "Private," signed by "Harris" as Colonial Governor, and addressed to "My dear Sir" [almost certainly to Sir Benjamin Hawes, M. P. for Kinsale], discussing affairs of the Colony and specifically recent pamphlets on colonial affairs. Five octavo bifolium gatherings, dated Trinidad, Jany. 5, 1848 [but mis-dated, intended to be 1849].                                                                                       A lengthy letter to Hawes discussing the pamphlet *Observations in Answer to Sir William Molesworth's Speech [Tuesday, July 25, 1848] on Colonial Expenditure and Government* by J. T. Danson, Esq., Barrister-at-Law, examining the issues raised about Colonial Government, the prevailing bias for the colored and black races against the planters, the subject of racial differences, the provision of education for the Negroes, landlords, the expenditure of colonial government, the high cost of living in the colonies, English influence, and much else. A wide-ranging letter, presumably written  to Hawes who was made Under-Secretary of State for War and the Colonies in Lord John Russell's government. It was Harris who brought a system of local government to Trinidad, "which was indispensable to the efficient operation of an education system," but "Economic conditions precluded political and social reform, and such ambitious plans fo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Easton Press. Classic 1846 Illuminated Edition THE HOLY BIBLE - The Classic Illuminated Edition of 1846 Published by Easton Press! Because it has recently been discontinued by Easton, this publication is sure to become rare! It is a beautiful, leather bound hardcover edition. The spine is ribbed and the page edges have a gold gilt. The spine, boards, and page edges are decorated with 22k gold gilt. The book is printed on archival quality paper, has Smyth-sewn pages (so the book will lay open on a table) and comes with a satin page ribbon/marker as well as more end-pages! With over 1,600 illustrations and over 1,000 initial drop letters, this magnificent edition reproduces the rare and groundbreaking Illuminated Bible, one of the most stunning Bibles ever produced. A breathtaking family Bible to treasure for generations. This is a large book, measuring 9.5" x 14" x 4" and weights just under 13 lbs. This Bible was given to me as a gift from a close relative.Because I possess an original 1846 copy of it already I want to sell this one. It has not been used at all, and with the exception of removing the outside plastic it has not been opened except to take these photos Don't miss this opportunity to get your copy of this now discontinued (by Easton Press) copy of this beautiful Bible. (Of course, there are no markings, underlinings, and none of the "Family pages" in the front have been filled. Free Shipping to the first "Buy It Now" customer! To my knowledge this is the lowest price for this particular Bible on eBay, and possibly on the entire internet!
