Par Emile MARCO DE SAINT-HILAIRE Dessins de R. de MORAINE. [2 volumes].‎ ‎Paris, Penaud, sans date [1846-1848].

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.

        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.

        The Cricket on the Hearth. A Fairy Tale of Home.

      London: Printed and Published for the Author, By Bradbury and Evans...MDCCCXLVI (1846) [1845]. 8vo., [viii], [1]-174, [2, ads] pp., steel engraved frontis and titlepage, and 12 woodcuts in text. Original horizontally-ribbed cloth; the front and back cover stamped in blind with a floral border, with gilt-stamped titling, author's name and fireplace illustration, and backstrip stamped in gilt with title surrounded by a wreath below which is the authors name also in gilt, a.e.g., pale yellow endpapers. Backstrip has some tears at joints, board edges rubbed, corners bumped, and some small scattered stains and discoloration to cloth, internally bright: very good. Contemporary ink inscription to first free endpaper. First edition in original cloth binding complete with binder's sticker. With all the internal flaws noted by Smith except "lucky" on page 79 which is noted to only appear flawed in "some copies." "Oliver Twist" ad does not match the first or second state in Smith. Illustrations were designed by John Leech, Richard Doyle, Clarkson Stanfield, Daniel Maclise and Edwin Landseer. Engravers include Thompson, the Dalziel brothers, T. Williams, Swain, and Groves. The Cricket... sprang from the idea to begin a weekly periodical which would've been called "The Cricket," though was abandoned quickly for a more important venture and the founding of The Daily News. The Cricket was wildly successful, doubling in circulation of both its predecessors. Smith II, 6. Eckel 125-126.

        Monumental Theatrical Advertising, Three-Piece Color Composite Woodblock Theater Poster, a Printing of Scenes from Charles Dickens' The Adventures of Oliver Twist.

      Three-Piece Color Composite Woodblock Theater Poster, a Printing of Scenes from Charles Dickens' The Adventures of Oliver Twist. Hartford: Calhoun Printing Works, [188-]. Each of the three sections measures 28 in x 42 in, combined (7 ft x 3 ½ ft). The images are taken from the original wrapper of Part II of The Adventures of Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. Illustrated by George Cruikshank. A New Edition Revised & Corrected. To be completed in Ten Numbers. London: Bradbury & Evans, 90, Fleet Street, and Whitefriars, 1846. Cohn 240. In the top panel of this triptych, the upper right-hand side recreates a reverse image of the second vignette from the left-hand side of Bradbury & Evans' wrapper, now titled "Oliver Introduced to the Kind Old Gent," from Part III. In the lower right-hand corner of the bottom panel, is a vignette titled, "Oliver's Reception by Fagin and the Boys," from Part III of the 1846 Bradbury & Evans edition. The central image occupying the entire center panel of the triptych is "Fagan's Last Night Alive," adapted from Cruikshank's "Fagan in the Condemned Cell," from Part X, appearing at the center bottom of Bradbury & Evans' wrapper for Part II, as reproduced by Cohn, pp. 80 - 81. In The New England Business Directory of 1875, the printer is identified as the Calhoun Printing Works. On the bottom sheet of the triptych the printer is given as "Calhoun Print, Harfford CT." This image is believed to be the first issued, not to be easily confused with re-printings from the 1920s, noting this visibly corrected spelling mistake and the racial slur, "Fagin - the Jew," which were deleted from only some of the later printings. Also, there is a marked difference in the quality of the nineteenth century paper from that used for the 1920s re-prints. The latter paper from the 1920s was very acidic and is now extremely brittle, as it did not absorb the color as well as the heavier nineteenth century paper. Also, the reprints are smaller and have even edges. The Calhoun company was known for its large colorful posters, show bills and other large-format outdoor advertising, using composite boxwood blocks. This copy of this poster was never used. It has not been backed, the only conservation it underwent was a painstaking surface cleaning to remove superficial and ground-in dirt, and a few marginal tears and weak areas were reinforced with mulberry paper and wheat starch paste. As it had been rolled in an open, unprotected environment, each of the three pieces was flattened by humidification and flattening between blotters. The over-all condition is extraordinarily fine. The original colors are brilliant.

        A Defence of Negro Slavery, as it exists in the United States

      Montgomery: Press of the "Alabama Journal",, 1846. Duodecimo (149 x 99 mm). Original brown quarter cloth-backed green paper boards. Extremities worn, spine frayed and split in places, corners bumped, contents foxed, leaves 14.2 and 3 a little cropped affecting single letters of text along fore edge, overall a very good copy. First edition of the Mississippi anti-abolitionist's work summarising proslavery arguments supported by religion and new racial science. The eleven chapters consider the biblical foundations of slavery within early Judaism and Christianity, the history of African slavery, the abolitionist position of England on the topic, the dangers and ineffectuality of emancipation, and the moral, intellectual, and economic benefits of slavery to both slaves and their masters. Of its circulation history, the historian G. Ward Hubbs notes that Estes "was distributing the thousand copies that he had printed to the west Alabama towns between Montgomery and his own Columbus, Mississippi, as well as in Mobile and New Orleans. The [Alabama] Beacon liked Estes' work enough to excerpt his lengthy articles, the only proslavery work to receive such treatment" (p. 71).

        SUBSTANCE OF AN ARGUMENT OF SAMUEL F. VINTON, FOR THE DEFENDANTS, IN THE CASE OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA VS. PETER M. GARNER AND OTHERS, FOR AN ALLEGED ABDUCTION OF CERTAIN SLAVES...[wrapper title]

      Marietta, Oh, 1846. 32pp. Dbd. Original printed wrappers, rear lacking. Later institutional ink stamps on titlepage. Light tanning. Good plus. Presentation copy, inscribed at the top of the titlepage: "For the Honbl. R.G. Winthrop, with the authors respects." An uncommon transcript of arguments made by the defense attorney, Samuel Vinton, for three Ohio men abducted into Virginia and tried there for assisting fugitive slaves in an 1845 case. He successfully argued that Virginia state courts did not have jurisdiction over crimes allegedly committed in Ohio. "By directing the Virginia court to the boundary issue, and away from the slavery issue, Vinton succeeded in defusing what could have been a very serious interstate conflict. Vinton was correct that the simple boundary issue was complicated by the issue of slavery. But, it seems unlikely that any other issue could have led to the seizure of people in Ohio by Virginians who claimed that acts committed in Ohio were indictable in Virginia" - Finkelman.

        Fuller's Time Telegraph and Palmer's Computing Scale [ Full Size ]

      Massachusetts: John E. Fuller [ 1845-1846 ]. A rare circular slide rule. 11 1/16 inches by 11 1/16 inches by almost 5/16 inches thick. Constructed of three layers of book board, the center board intact, the outer two boards with circular volvelle cutouts, the whole connected with a center metal rivet and decorative gilded leather affixed around the assemblage edges. Each side is covered with a lithographed sheet, with a circular cutout for the inside and outside of the volvelle scales. The top board, containing the volvelle "Palmer's Computing Scale" notes it was engraved by George G. Smith, 186 Washington St, Boston. It also has a deposit (Entered according to Act of Congress) notice dated 1843 by Aaron Palmer in the Clerk's office of the District Court State of Massachusetts. This volvelle has the original recessed metal ¾ inch finger disk used to move the rule. The rear board contains "Fuller's Time Telegraph" with a deposit notice of 1845, by John E. Fuller, in the State of Massachusetts. Also "Eng'd by GG Smith, Boston". There is also a previous owner name "L Derr" inked in the center. This side also has the original ¾ inch finger disk for movement. Both volvelles rotate as they should, but the Palmer side is curled outward from the flat plane, a common failing with these devices. Uniform darkening/soiling to both sides, some minor loss to the decorative leather mostly at corners. Lacking the often missing cloth portfolio cover and instructions. Boards. Palmer's Computing Scale is one of the most desirable artifacts for those who collect early American Slide Rules and calculating devices. It was designed by Mr. Aaron Palmer and Mr. George G Smith in early 1841. A prototype was shown in early 1842, and later in Boston in the fall of 1843 - the First American Sliderule. Feazel notes that the rule's first commercial appearance was in January 1844. The first version of the circular rule had a front volvelle, and instructions printed on the rear. Mr. John E. Fuller purchased the copyrights to the device from Palmer, and in 1845 copyrighted the Time Telegraph. This second volvelle or circular rule device was affixed to the rear of Palmer's Computing Scale, and "how to" instructions were provided in a separate cloth case with foldout and instructions (now rarely found). This second incarnation, with the addition of the Time Telegraph, is one of the first times that a device, rather than a person, is referred to as a "computer". Previously, people who sat at their desks and performed computing operations were called computers. This device, proudly noted by Fuller in his full sized instruction book, is called a "TELEGRAPHIC COMPUTER" (here missing). There were various versions of this device produced from 1845 to 1871. Our example was published in 1845/46 (further differentiation of the date is impossible without the instruction book). This example has the Palmer slide rule showing a copyright of 1843, and the Fuller side copyright 1845. See Origins of Cyberspace #302 and Journal of the Oughtred Society Vol 3 No 1 and Vol 4 no 1 for more information. Very Good.

        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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Dickens?s signature, along with that of his father and of John Forster Esquire, on a small envelope.

      [1846?] 1846 - A single 8vo leaf, folded & with (broken) seal to form a small envelope, approx. 11 x 7cm, written on one side only in black ink. It is not clear what this signed leaf refers to. The uppermost line reads ?Favored by John Forster Esquire?; beneath this is the signature of Dickens?s father ?John Dickens Esquire?, and the third and last line bears the signature of Charles Dickens himself. The note appears to be an endorsement for something or someone, and shows the three signatories to be in agreement. It may refer to the dramatisation of Dickens?s Christmas Book The Battle of Life, written while Dickens was in Lausanne in the summer of 1846. A similar memo written to the actor Robert Keeley at this time, and cited in the collection of Edwin W. Coggeshall, is described as having a note on the back reading ?favored by John Forster, Charles Dickens, & &? The letter, now in the Huntington Library, is recorded in Pilgrim Letters vol. IV, but without mention of the note. It dates to the earlier part of Dickens?s career, the signature is in black ink. John Dickens, who died in 1851 is still alive.

        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

      Baltimore: E. Weber & Co, 1846. FIRST EDITION. 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.. 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.

        The Jewish Manual:

      London: T. & W. Boone,, 1846. or, Practical Information in Jewish and Modern Cookery, With a Collection of Valuable Recipes & Hints Relating to the Toilette. Edited by a Lady. Including information on the Complexion, the Hair, the Teeth, Hands and Nails, Dress, Diet and the Influence of the Mind as Regards to Beauty. Octavo. Original purple diapered cloth, title gilt to the front board, blind panels to both boards, pale cream surface-paper endpapers, edges speckled red. Housed in a burgundy quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. A little rubbed overall, corners bumped, spine sunned and worn head and tail with the cloth chipped away showing a secondary lining layer, pale browning overall, a few light stains, internal binding professionally restored at gathering K; a very good copy. First edition of the first kosher cookbook in the English language, produced anonymously by Judith Montefiore, the "First Lady of Anglo-Jewry", which proves that one can be "genteel without being Gentile". The balance between an English and Jewish identity was an overriding concern of Jewish families in the middle class at this time, including the Montefiores; both Judith and her husband Moses "were concerned that the Reform movement would lead to unacceptable compromises in terms of Jewish life and ritual" (Judith W. Page, Jerusalem and Jewish Memory: Judith Montefiore's "Private Journal", p. 138) and worked publicly against such compromises. This cookbook is a key part of that work, created to demonstrate the ease with which one could keep Kosher whilst following the latest fashions. The manual not only contains traditionally Jewish recipes, such as for Kugel and pickling gherkins, but also popular English and French meals adapted for a Kosher household; it was designed to appeal to those outside the Jewish faith as well as those within the faith. In this work a sense of frustration can be felt with other cookbooks currently available, with the preface noting that"prohibited articles and combinations [are] assumed to be necessary ingredients of nearly every dish". Montefiore goes on to disprove this assumption, providing a number of simple substitutions for such prohibited items, such as the use of olive oil in place of dripping or lard, and almond-cream to replace dairy in puddings. Cookbooks such as these mirror society's customs as well as demonstrate the compatibility of Jewish ritual with non-Jewish societal norms. Indeed in this expansive work Montefiore was concerned not simply with the methods of cooking employed, but also in ensuring the central role of food within the household, and the continued education of young Jewish women to maintain this role. Daniel E. Feinberg and Alice Crosetto note that "while in traditional Judaism men are dominant figures in synagogues, women, stereotypically, dominate kitchens" and "compile cookbooks to pass down the 'gift of vital practical knowledge'. Often passing down a cookbook to a daughter signified the change of a young woman into adulthood" (Daniel E. Feinberg, Alice Crosetto, Cookbooks: Preserving Jewish Tradition, pp. 153–154). Montefiore notes in the preface that this manual is "addressed exclusively to the ladies", and that "the various acquirements, which in the present day are deemed essential to female education, rarely leave much time or inclination for the humble study of household affairs". Montefiore aims to address this perceived modern lack of practical female knowledge, compiling this manual to ensure continual access to information which was traditionally "bequeathed only by memory or manuscript". However Montefiore is not suggesting women should neglect other activities, noting "the compatibility of uniting the cultivation of talents with domestic pursuits", a point that is reinforced in the final chapter of the volume on the influence of the mind with regards to beauty. Montefiore notes for example that "drawing is highly calculated to enhance feminine beauty". She also demonstrates her combination of high Victorian morals and religiosity writing that "all passions give their corresponding expression to the countenance" and therefore "the thoughts are completely under our own guidance and must never be allowed to wander idly or sinfully". This copy bears the ownership inscription of "Miss Marcoso, Birmingham" to the front free endpaper. The Marcoso family are known to have run both a jewellery and hardware business in Birmingham and London at this time and donated heavily to a number of Jewish charities. For example an "I. Marcoso" is on the 1844 list of 1 guinea subscribers towards the Hebrew National School, Birmingham, founded in 1843, of which the Montefiores were Life Governors; Moses Montefiore laid the foundation stone of the school. This work has clear and tantalising signs of use, including cookery stains, on a number of pages. These are mainly around the recipes for puddings or "Sweet dishes", which may suggest it was the responsibility of the younger, unmarried, women to provide desserts for social events. A total of 29 recipes have been marked in ink, 22 of which are in this section, and a number of corners have been turned down for easy access. This attractive book was designed as a practical guide to be used in the kitchen and handed down the generations, which means remarkably well preserved copies such as this, which nevertheless show signs of their use are uncommon. Seven copies have been traced at auction and just three copies have been traced institutionally in the UK at: the University of Cambridge, the Wellcome Library, and University College London. A further eight have been traced in North America at: the University of Guelph, Kansas State University, Hebrew Union College, the University of Pennsylvania, the Virginia Commonwealth University, the Texas Woman's University Library, the New York Public Library, and the Library of Congress.

        THE CRICKET ON THE HEARTH

      1846 - A Fairy Tale of Home. London: Bradbury and Evans, 1846. 2 pp undated ads. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, all page edges gilt. First Edition of the third of Dickens's five Christmas books, dated 1846 but actually issued on December 20, 1845. This is the tale about John Peerybingle and the fairy cricket that prevents him from doubting his wife's sincerity; the illustrations are by John Leech, Richard Doyle and three others.~This copy has the Oliver Twist ad leaf in the second and usual state, with "No. I. of" on a line by itself. It is a bright copy, in near-fine condition (spine very slightly faded, but with scarcely any wear); atypically the delicate original endpapers are not cracked. The half-title bears the inked inscription "Ellen F. Lee | from her father | December 25 1845" -- Christmas Day, five days after publication. In our experience THE CRICKET, of the four "other" Christmas books, is the one that is least-often encountered in collectible condition. Podeschi (Yale) A92 (ad leaf not cited); Smith II pp 37-43.
