         The Law of God, Containing the Book of Genesis, Edited and with Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised, by Isaac Leeser

      Philadelphia: Printed by C. Sherman for the editor, 1846. First edition thus. Printed in Hebrew and English, with corresponding text on facing pages. 5 vols. 12mo. Three quarter black morocco, tan cloth sides. Later gift inscription on half-title of vol. II, else internally clean. A fine set. First edition thus. Printed in Hebrew and English, with corresponding text on facing pages. 5 vols. 12mo. THE FIRST JEWISH TRANSLATION OF THE PENTATEUCH INTO ENGLISH. Isaac Leeser (1806-1868) was named hazan (cantor) of Congregation Mikveh Israel in Philadelphia in 1829. Leeser's "contributions to every area of Jewish culture and religion made him a major builder of American Judaism." The publication of his Pentateuch was the first time that any portion of the Bible was published in America under Jewish auspices. "The translation of the Bible was Leeser's great literary achievement and represented many years of patient labor and devotion to a task which he considered sacred ... He made good use of the various German translations by Jews of the collective commentary known as the Biur and of other Jewish exegetic works. As a result his translation though based in style upon the King James version can be considered an independent work for the changes he produced are numerous and great... until the new Jewish Publication Society version was issued in 1917, it was the only source from which many Jews not conversant with Hebrew derived their knowledge of the Bible in accordance with Jewish tradition" (Waxman, History of Jewish Literature, 1090).

         Daegelyksche aenteekening van alle de goederen te verwen komende bij Joannes Baptista Joffroy begonst 1734. [Mechelen (Malines, Belgium), 1 April 1734-31 August 1759]. Folio (32.5 x 21 cm). Manuscript journal of accounts in dark brown ink on paper, written in Dutch in an upright gothic hand, with each page ruled in double and single lines to make 4 or 5 columns and up to 22 rows, decorated with hundreds of pen flourishes, three forming pictures of birds as tailpieces and with a decorative cross to begin 1750 (some other years with a simpler cross), a couple headings with additions in red. Contemporary vellum.

      - For Jean-Baptiste Joffroy and his family: "J.-B. Joffroy, de Malines", Bibliophile Belge III (1846), pp. 379-382; Installé, Patriciërs en ambachtslui in het stadsbestuur te Mechelen (1982), pp. 87-92. Journal of accounts of the cloth dyeing factory of Joannes Baptista Joffroy (1699/1708-post 1772?) in Mechelen (Malines) in the Southern Netherlands (now Belgium) under the Austrian Habsburgs, beginning on 1 April 1734 and ending with 21 August 1759. Most of the entries are for accounts receivable, but the journal also records deliveries of materials and goods to the firm and payments made for them, as well as other transactions or events, occasionally not monetary. The entries record a wide variety of cloths, almost entirely wollens: most common are laken, serge and "kastor" but also flannel, "Fries", "perpetuan", ratiné, etc., and sometimes combinations. An unusually detailed note, apparently for incoming cloth includes "tricots". The entry usually indicates the colour the cloth was dyed, most often green or blue, but also yellow, bay (reddish brown), red and others. Some are more specific. The records of goods received and their payments are especially interesting for the materials and their prices, recording indigo, sandalwood, vitriol and other dyestuffs. The entries identify hundreds of customers.Joannes Baptista Joffroy was the only surviving child and successor of Jan Bartholomeus Joffroy (1669-1740), not only a cloth dyer, but dean of the dyers guild in Mechelen.With a small brown stain running into the text of 1 leaf and occasional minor smudges, ink spots or minor marginal stains, but the journal remains generally in very good condition. The binding is dirty, with some chips and tears, especially in the backstrip, and with the spine concaved. An essential primary source for any study of the cloth-dyeing trade.

         Vollständige Beschreibung und Abbildung der sämmtlichen Holzarten, welche im mittlern und nördlichen Deutschland wild wachsen. Für Gutsbesitzer, Forstmänner, Oekonomen und Freunde der Natur

      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-Wälder, aber freilich kaum gedeckt wurden “ (S. 9) Vgl. Nissen, BBI 1104. Stafleu-Cowan 3928. Pritzel 4873. Beschreibung: 2 Bände in originalem Halblederbezug mit goldgeprägtem Rücken: a.

In the first letter, to[Francis] Wrangham, Rogers sends thanks and states "I am not now so young or so gay as when you roused me from my morning dream in the Temple, for I am now climbing ? my seventy sixth year ? but my heart is as young as ever & as sensible as ever to kindness such as yours. You ask me what I am writing - I answer little or nothing; though now and then I add a syllable or two in the shape of a note, when a new edition is called for. You have no doubt Wellesley's Effusions on the Weeping Willow ?" In the postscipt Rogers writes, "Southey is, I fear, sinking fast; & also Bowles, who has written me a melancholy letter, signing himself 'Your desolate friend.' His is something of the religous despondence of Cowper."In the second letter, addressed only to "My dear Friend" Rogers reports that he has "sent her 90 notes - all I had to give ? Moore came to my door in the Autumn ? From Borwood I have heard nothing & now Winter is arriving. I must sit down by my fireside ?". A total of 4 pp. pen and ink on paper. 8vo

         The Count of Monte Cristo. With Twenty Illustations, Drawn on Wood by M. Valentin.

      London Chapman and Hall 1846 - First edition, 2 volumes, 8vo., frontispiece, (i-iii), iv, (1)-464 & frontispiece, (i-iii), iv, (1)-464 pp., age-toned, some random, spotting mostly to endpapers and a few margins, else very good, publisher's terracotta cloth, decoratively blind-embossed, smooth, gilt-panelled spines, evenly rubbed worn with some minor marks, corners gently bumped, otherwise a remarkable survival of a very original and exceptionally rare set. Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) established himself as one of the most popular and prolific authors in France, known for plays and historical adventure novels such as The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo. His romantic style, often compared to Victor Hugo, proved immensely popular and with the money he earned from publishing his novels, Dumas purchased land and built the Château de Monte Cristo in Port Marly, Yvelines, France. This home (now a museum) was intended to be a sanctuary for the author, and he spent much of his time writing and entertaining there before debt overtook him, forcing him to sell the property. He fled to Belgium in 1851, and later to Russia, to evade creditors. Dumas continued to publish, including travel books on Russia, during his period of exile. The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned (Dumas' father was imprisoned for two years following a disagreement with Napoleon and died shortly following his release), escapes from jail (in a dead man's body bag tossed to the waves), acquires a fortune and sets about wreaking revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty. The historical context of the story is important, taking place in France, Italy, and islands in the Mediterranean during the events of 1815–1839: the era of the Bourbon Restoration through the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. It begins just before the Hundred Days period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile). It is now regarded as one of the literary greats and Dumas' works have been translated into more than 100 languages and adapted for numerous films. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         THE BATTLE OF LIFE

      1846. A Love Story. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1846. 2 pp undated ads. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in gilt. First Edition of the fourth of Dickens's five illustrated Christmas books -- following A CHRISTMAS CAROL, THE CHIMES, and THE CRICKET ON THE HEARTH, and preceding THE HAUNTED MAN. This is an unusual tale in which two sisters love the same man, both ultimately settling in with him (though only one is married to him) -- according to Thackeray "a wretched affair." It is in fact quite autobiographical: Dickens loved Mary Hogarth, married her sister Catherine, and then was happy to have his household run by their sister Georgina.~This copy has the vignette title page in the fourth and usual state (Todd's state E1), with an angel holding the banner and with no publisher's imprint. In our experience, at least 90% and perhaps 95% of the copies encountered are of this state. This is a bright, attractive copy, just about fine, with only the faintest hint of wear at the very tips (volume slightly askew as usual). The front endpaper bears the inked inscription "Ellen F. Lee | from her father | December 25 1846" -- Christmas Day, six days after publication. Smith II pp 60-65; Podeschi (Yale) A116.

         A Christmas Carol in Prose; The Chimes; The Cricket on the Hearth. Copyright Edition.

      Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1846 - Octavo (155 × 108 mm). Contemporary burgundy half morocco, spine gilt in compartments, marbled sides. Spine a little faded, some minor rubbing at the extremities, spotting to endpapers, title pages, and occasionally to contents. A very good copy. An attractively bound volume of three of Dickens's Christmas books, including A Christmas Carol. Tauchnitz editions are sometimes thought of as piracies; in fact they were authorized editions for sale to English-speaking travellers on the Continent. Between 1841 and the novelist's death in 1870 Tauchnitz ("a publisher who had Dickens's whole and constant trust", according to Sadrin) published the entire range of Dickens's novels. Dickens even sent one of his sons to Tauchnitz to learn German. Anny Sadrin, The Oxford Reader's Companion to Dickens.

Par Emile MARCO DE SAINT-HILAIRE Dessins de R. de MORAINE. [2 volumes].‎ ‎Paris, Penaud, sans date [1846-1848]. Neuf parties en quatre tomes RELIES EN DEUX VOLUMES GRAND FORMAT IN-8 (263 CM X 18,2 CM) Reliure demi-maroquin à grain marron, dos quatre nerfs plats ornés d'une roulette dorée, caissons ornés de filets et fers spéciaux, titre et tomaison dorés.

Elle est magnifiquement illustrée de 30 PLANCHES en couleurs d'uniformes militaires russes, français, suisses, italiens, polonais, portugais, prussiens, autrichiens, saxons, bavarois de la Grande Armée et de l'Armée Russe de 1812 et de 10 PLANCHES en noir par R. DE MORAINE. Outre l'intérêt suscité par son iconographie et notamment ses belles planches en couleurs minutieusement aquarellées à la main, l'ouvrage est recherché pour sa publication de documents originaux de l'époque et d’états des troupes. Marco de Saint-Hilaire était déjà un auteur renommé pour son " Histoire de la Garde Impériale ", lorsqu'il conçut le projet de ce livre monumental. Retracer la campagne de Russie de 1812 dans les moindres détails, avec grand souci de vérité historique, tel fut son dessein qu'il réussit parfaitement. Evoquant la situation politique sur l'échiquier européen au début de 1812, Marco de Saint-Hilaire analyse les causes de la guerre, avec une grande perspicacité. Ensuite, tous les événements de cet immense désastre militaire se déroulent devant nos yeux : passage du Niémen, marche sur Witebsk, prise de Smolensk, bataille de la Moskowa, séjour à Moscou, bataille de Malojaroslavetz, combat de Krasnoë, passage de la Bérésina, sort des prisonniers. Un grand nombre de témoins oculaires viennent épauler le récit de l'auteur, basé sur les documents de premier ordre. Au fil des pages, passant du triomphe au désespoir, dans la chaleur étouffante de l'été russe et sous le vent glacial, le lecteur est entraîné à la suite de la Grande Armée dans son aventure la plus tragique Rousseurs et quelques taches et cernes de mouillures à certaines pages de texte ( sans altération de lecture), mais les gravures en couleurs en sont totalement exemptes. Plats de la reliure reteintés sur les bords, coins un peu émoussés. Exemplaire restant néanmoins très attractif pour le collectionneur napoléonien averti désireux d'acquérir une pièce d'exception et de grande rareté complète de ses prestigieuses gravures aquarellées en couleurs.

         TOPOGRAPHICAL MAP OF THE ROAD FROM MISSOURI TO OREGON COMMENCING AT THE MOUTH OF THE KANSAS IN THE MISSOURI RIVER, ENDING AT THE MOUTH OF THE WALLAH WALLAH IN THE COLUMBIA. IN VII SECTIONS

      E. Weber & Co, Baltimore 1846 - 410 x 675 mm. (16 x 26 3/4"). [7] (vast) leaves (blank on verso), comprising maps.Compiled by Charles Preuss from his sketches made on the ground and from the field notes and journal of Capt. J. C. Frémont. FIRST EDITION. Sheets bound with blue paper tape along right-hand edge and stored in an archival folder. Seven oblong folio lithographed maps. Graff 3360 ("An extraordinary map by a master cartographer"); Streeter Sale 3100; Wagner-Camp 115 (note); Wheat, Transmississippi West 523. First and last leaf a little soiled and foxed, last leaf with two-inch chip to one edge (well away from image) and a small hole along an old fold (minimal loss), interior leaves with scattered mild foxing, otherwise a fine copy, generally clean, fresh, and pleasing. This is a rare complete copy of the fragile first edition of a landmark in the cartography of the American West, the first accurate map of the Oregon Trail. It is based on the map Preuss drew to accompany Frémont's report on their expedition to Oregon Territory in 1843-44, described by Wheat as "a cartographic milestone. By accurately representing the basic features of the new country, Preuss changed the course of western mapmaking. No longer would cartography be based on myth and speculation." This detailed version of that map is enhanced by considerable accompanying engraved text, comprising quotations from Frémont's journal about the area depicted, along with practical advice about the availability of water, game, grass for horses and oxen, fuel for fires, and cautions about any threats posed by Indians. As Schubert observes in "Vanguard of Expansion," "this annotated atlas was one of the greatest contributions Frémont and Preuss made to the development of the West." The German-born Preuss (1803-54) had been a surveyor for the Prussian government before immigrating to the United States. The rather glum, pragmatic Preuss was an ideal counterpoint to the flamboyant, poetic Frémont: as our map demonstrates, Frémont could evoke the wonder of Western landscapes, while Preuss pointed out good camping sites and water sources. Together, they provided both inspiration and logistics for the prospective pioneer.

         Marie Antoinette; or, The Chevalier of the Red House

      London: George Peirce, 1846. First Edition. wrappers. Very good. 6 vols. 1st edition in English, 1st issue in parts (all covers numbered by hand). Original wrappers, part VI with chips to the back, else very good, complete, unrepaired, and rare as rooster eggs. Dumas wrote this adventure as a high tension anxiety (ticking clock/jail-break plotline), to be the central novel in his series about the French Revolution, but as he got deeper into the others (Memoirs of a Physician, 1848, Queen's Necklace, 1850, Ange Pitou, 1851, and Countess of Charny, 1854) the nuances of the series' overlapping cast (mainly Phillipe de Taverney) no longer fit. So he let the novel stand alone, and it does so with resilient fame. Ex-Bob Jackson, this very set (not that they could have found another) was last seen 19 years ago at the Grolier Club, in their exhibit, Essential Parts (recorded on page 16 of their 1996 catalog). The Red House (La Maison-Rouge) were the ferociously dedicated, and heroically resolute, personal guard of King Louis XVI and his family, so named for their brilliant red cloaks. Dumas resurrects their shadowy leader, The Red Knight himself, as his secret agent in disguise, the tip of a royalist spear, leading Batz's inspired intrigue (The Carnation Conspiracy) to rescue Marie Antoinette from the prison at the Conciergerie. The result is breathtaking reader whiplash, remindful of the disquiet in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar (the exemplar for a choice of heroes, wherein both sides are positive they are in the right), and it presages with a clear prescience the James Bond bravura of action spy, and the Mission Impossible style of whirlpool count-down plotline.
