      Tehran 1846 - size circa 31 x 21 cm -- lithograph printed in Tehran in 1262 (1846) -- 220 leaves. - with handwritten dedication as a present in Ramadan dated from 1278 (1862) on title page. -- A very rare and early example of lithographic book printing in Tehran, where the first lithographic printing press started not before 1837. "In Tehran the first lithographed item was the newspaper called Kagad-eakbar (lit. newspaper) published by Mirza Saleh in 1837. There were only three issues, and these came out in Moharram-Jomada I 1253/May-August 1837 (Sadr-Hasemi I, no. 37). As far as printing of books is concerned, the first publications are datable to 1838." (Encyclopaedia Iranica) -- modern half-linen binding, preserving the original leather boards. -- a few pages have old handwritten marginal notes, occasionally stained in places, finger soiling throughout, first and last leaves some more stained, 2 leaves loose, first and last leaves with marginal tears -- otherwise in good condition. -- Printed books from Islamic presses in Iran from the 19th century are extremely rare.

        Narrative of a Four Months' Residence Among the Natives of A Valley of the Marquesas Islands; Or, a Peep at Polynesian Life

      London: John Murray, 1846. First edition. An extraordinary copy of Melville's first book. Preceding the US printing (titled "Typee") by a month. First issue, in the "A" variant, according to BAL (13652), wtih the publisher's terminal catalogue dated "March, 1846," apparently without bibliographical significance. P. 19, line 1 with the uncorrected text: "Pomarea." This copy is in Near Fine condition and completely untouched. A few small chips from the spine ends, cloth one shade lighter on the spine, previous owner's name and bookplate on the front paste-down and an old NY bookseller's description tipped in on the front end paper. Browning to initial and final leaves. However, despite the long list of subtle flaws, the finest copy to appear on the market for many years. Perhaps on par with the copy at Swann in 2006 that sold for $13,800, although we have yet to see an image of that copy. Most are rebound and the few in original cloth are typically rebacked or are later printings.

        The Count of Monte Cristo. Comprising "The Chateau D'If: A Romance" and "The Count of Monte Christo", being a sequel. [Published in The Parlour Novelist, A Series of Works of Fiction By The Most Celebrated Authors. Volumes 3, 8 and 9].

      Belfast; Simms and M'Intyre; London; W. S. Orr and Co. 1846., 39. 3 Volumes, Octavo. First Appearance in English of "Le Comte De Monte Christo."; complete as issued in three parts of The Parlour Novelist and the first and only translation into English based upon the original text of the novel. Bound in recent half red calf over marbled paper covered boards. Green title labels, all edges with contemporary red speckling. Gilt centre tools to spine compartments. Very bright and sharp; near-fine. First appearing as a serial in the Parisian "Journal de Debats" between August 1844 and January 1846. The first book editions to be published were unsurprisingly in Paris and Brussels. The first Paris edition is extremely rare, auction records can trace no copy at auction in the last 50 years at least, although a copy of the second Paris edition sold at Christie's Paris in 2010 for a quarter of a million Euros. The novel was a tremendous success in France and there was something of an indecorous scuffle amongst English publishers eager to get their hands on it for domestic publication. Simms, M'Intyre and Orr published the first part of the novel in their "Parlour Novelist" in March 1846; barely two months after the final installment appeared in "Le Journal de Debats." Following the example of the Parisian publishers Simms and M'Intyre published the novel in parts with the first third of the text appearing under the title "The Chateau D' If" as volume 3 of The Parlour Novelist with the rest of the novel appearing in volumes 8 and 9 a little later. The fact that they were the first to obtain rights to such a prestigious novel was not lost on Simms M'Intyre who rather smugly proclaimed their priority in the preface: "In presenting the following translation to the English Public, the publisher's feel considerable gratification in being the first to make known to them this charming romance, the chef d'ouevre of the most dinstinguished of French novelists, ALEXANDRE DUMAS... Belfast, March 1, 1846" (The Chateau D'If, p. V) The Simms and M'Intyre translation by Emma Hardy (credited as being the first English translation in the foreword to the 2008 Oxford University Press edition of Monte Cristo) was clearly based on the original text of the novel as it first appeared in the Journal de Debats. The confirmation of this can be found in two rather minor but essential points of issue; the date of 24th of February in the first line of the novel (later revised to 28th February) and the spelling of "Christo" with an "h" throughout; this spelling was the one retained in the Paris and Brussels editions and was only changed to Cristo for the first illustrated edition (Paris, Au Bureau de L'Echo Des Feuilletons, 1846). The second English translation was the one commissioned by Chapman and Hall. This was based upon the revised text of the novel, with the dat of 28th of February in the first line and the "h" dropped from Christo. The source text was most likely the above mentioned L'Echo Des Feuilletons edition. According to Munro and Sadleir the Chapman and Hall edition (May) appeared after the Simms M'Intyre Parlour Novelist vol. 3 (March). Complete sets of the 3 volumes of the Simms M'Intyre edition are very rare. OCLC records no copies of three volume sets, and only three sets of the Parlour Novelist series containing these volumes (two of which are in the British Library and one in Cambridge). Even odd volumes appear extremely scarce with arguably the largest and most comprehensive Dumas collection (The FW Reed Dumas Collection in Auckland) holding only the first volume. ABPC records no copies of any of the three volumes, and no sets of the Parlour Novelist. A scarce and important edition of one of the most famous creations in the history of the novel.

Bookplate on front pastedown, contemporary ink inscription on front flyleaf. Some light foxing. In a red half morocco and cloth slipcase and chemise, spine gilt. A very rare key overland guide One of the earliest and rarest of overland guide books to the Oregon Trail, chronologically the second such guide, preceded only by the Hastings guide of 1845. The authors went overland to Oregon in 1843. Winter went to California the following year, then returned to Indiana, where he arranged to publish this guidebook in time for the 1846 emigrant season. The guide provides a detailed account of the 1843 trip, a long description of Oregon, Winter's route to California, the Bear Flag movement, gold at Santa Barbara, and of northern California. The return route from California is also described, and there is a table of distances in the rear. Winter eventually settled in the Napa-Sonoma area. This is the issue with corrected text on pages 26 and 36. A rarity, afforded a "d" by Howes, who calls it "one of the greatest of early overland narratives." This copy with an ownership inscription which reads, "Jno. M.Gowan / Johnson classmate in / college for 3 years." A later hand has indicated that this was Wabash College, in Crawfordsville.

        Manners and Customs of the Aborigines of the Encounter Bay Tribe, South Australia

      'printed and published for Government, by George Dehane', Adelaide 1846 - Octavo, [ii], 15 pages. Original stiffened blue wrappers (with the title page details repeated on the front cover); trifling surface blemish to the front cover; essentially a very fine copy. Heinrich Edward August Meyer was a Lutheran missionary who arrived in Australia in 1840, and spent just over two years living with the Raminyeri tribe of the Encounter Bay area before publishing in 1843 'the first grammar and vocabulary on Ngarrindjeri, "Vocabulary of the Language spoken by the Aborigines of the Encounter Bay Tribe, South Australia". He lived at Encounter Bay until 1848 . . . Meyer was part of an Adelaide-based community of missionaries from the Dresden Missionary School, which placed great emphasis on learning the language because it believed in the importance of communicating with the Aboriginal people in their own language . . . He also had continuing contact with other missionaries who were also involved in writing grammars, such as Clamor Schurmann who had published a grammar of Kaurna, the language to the North of Ngarrindjeri, just before Meyer's arrival. This background, as well as the assertion in his introduction to the 1843 grammar that the whole publication had been twice reviewed with different natives, so that the meaning assigned to the words may be relied upon as correct . . . has resulted in a text that is considered to be a reliable reflection of the language at the time, and a good grammar for its time' (Corinne Bannister: 'A Longitudinal Study of Ngarrindjeri', online). In this short but closely printed pamphlet Meyer, in 'giving an account of these people . . . endeavour[s] to trace the life of one from his birth upwards'. His extended period of living with the Encounter Bay people in these early years of white settlement adds authenticity to his detailed account of subjects such as hunting, sorcery and burial customs. Ferguson 4348; see also Ferguson 13095 (WOODS, J.D. [editor]: The Native Tribes of South Australia [Adelaide, Wigg, 1879], which reprints this item); Greenway 6696.

        Scenes In The Rocky Mountains, and in Oregon, California, New Mexico, Texas, and The Grand Prairies or notes by the way, during an excursion of three years . By a New Englander

      Carey & Hart, Philadelphia 1846 - (7 1/8 x 4 3/4 inches). Large folding map. Foxing. Publisher's green cloth, covers decoratively blocked in blind, expertly rebacked to style retaining a portion of the original spine with lettering First edition, second issue of one of the most important overland narratives: this copy complete with its important map. Sage set out from Westport in the summer of 1841 with a fur caravan, later visiting New Mexico, witnessing the disaster of the Snively expedition, and joining the end of the 1843 Fremont expedition. He returned to Ohio in time to take a vigorous if futile role in the election of 1844, supporting Henry Clay. He wrote this book in 1845. The story of the publication of this work and its subsequent sale is told by LeRoy Hafen in the introduction to the most scholarly edition of Sage, issued in two volumes by the Arthur H. Clark Co. in 1956. According to Hafen, the publishers of the original edition felt the addition of a map would cost too much, and it was only at the author's insistence that a map was printed and sold with the book, at a higher rate. The map, based mainly on the 1845 Fremont map, is usually not found with the book. It is "one of the earliest to depict the finally-determined Oregon of the earliest attempts to show on a map the evermore-heavily traveled emigrant road to California" (Wheat). It adds interesting notes on the country and locations of fur trading establishments. Howes notes that it is "the best contemporary account of Snively's abortive land-pirate expedition" (Howes). Sage was certainly one of the most literate and acute observers of the West in the period immediately before the events of 1846. First edition, second issued (with page numbers 77-88, 270-271, and 302 correctly placed in outer margin). Preceded by a limited issue of 100 copies in wrappers published without the map.

        Autograph letter signed "Dr. Richard Strauss" to conductor Ernst von Schuch

      The conductor Ernst von Schuch (1846-1916) was Kapellmeister at the Dresden opera. He conducted the premi?res of Strauss';s Feuersnot (1901), Salome (1905), Elektra (1909), and Der Rosenkavalier (1911). The letter also mentions the conductor Felix Mottl (1856-1911), then employed at the Munich opera.Strauss writes from a luxury hotel in the then-fashionable resort of Schierke in the Harz mountains. The letter uses German script, except for proper names, including titles of works.. On a postcard, 143 x 95 mm. Dated Schierke, January 2, 1909 [!1910]. In black ink. Autograph address to verso "Herrn Geheimrat E. von Schuch... K?tschenbroda [!K?tzschenbroda] bei Dresden. On a postcard of the Hotel F?rst zu Stolberg, Schierke im Oberharz. In German (with translation).Strauss states his terms for a planned meeting with his friend and colleague in Berlin and discusses the programming of a guest concert to be conducted by Schuch:"Dear Friend, Happy New Year! On the evening on the 5th I will be back in Berlin. If you come on the 6th or 7th, I will be yours all day, only in the evening I have [to conduct] Elektra on the 6th and Meistersinger on the 7th... Mottl is possibly willing to cede Tod und Verklärung to you. We will find it difficult to squeeze it in because the programs are already very long."Strauss inadvertently completed the final blank in the date with a "9," resulting in the year 1909. That it was actually 1910 is confirmed by the postmark (January 3, 1910).Slightly worn and browned; corners slightly creased.
