        Afsluttende uvidenskabelig Efterskrift til de philosophiske Smuler. Mimisk=pathetisk=dialektisk Sammenskrift, Existentielt Indlæg, af Johannes Climacus. Udgiven af S. Kierkegaard. [Concluding Unscientific Postscript to The Philosophical Fragments].

      Kjøbenhavn, 1846. Large 8vo. Uncut. Orig. blue cardboard boards, rebacked w. paper to match that of the boards. Some wear to edges of boards, and contemporary annotations to front board. Internally browned, as usual, and some occasional brownspotting. X, 480 pp., (1 f., -blank) (2 ff., -A First and Last Explanation).. First edition in the rare original binding, of this very important major book, the Postscript, by the most famous Danish philosopher of all times, the father of existentialism.Besides being one of the most philosophically important of Kierkegaard's publications, this work reveals one of the most important secrets of this philosophical giant: The authorship of not only his main work and the main work of existentialism, Either-Or, but also of all of his pseudonymous works. Nothing that Kierkegaard did was left to chance, which is also reflected in his carefully chosen pseudonyms and everything that came with them, e.g. his presentations , which carefully followed the pseudonym of the book, so that he never signed himself the author, if his Christian name was not listed as the author on the title-page. This carefulness also applied to the publication of his works, and his Postscript is one of the most carefully planned ones. The format of the book is large, 145 x 230 mm, and it is of large extent, -480 pages, and then 6 unpaginated ones, the last four of which contain his greatly important and carefully chosen revelation of the true authorship of all the pseudonymous writings, under the headline ''A First and Last Explanation. The pages are left unpaginated, divided from the rest of the book with a blank leaf and printed with a smaller type with the rest, which clearly indicates for the reader that these pages are not part of the actual text, but something different that must be noticed. The postscript to the Postscript begins thus (own translation): For the sake of manners and etiquette I hereby acknowledge, what can hardly in reality be of interest to anybody to know, that I am, as one says, the author of Either-Or (Victor Eremita), Copenhagen in February 1843; Fear and Trembling (Johannes de Silentio), 1843; Repetition (ConstantinConstantius) 1843; On the Concept of Dread (Virgilius Hafniensis) 1844; Preface (Nicolaus Notabene) 1844; Philosophical Fragments (Johannes Climacus) 1844; Stages on Life's Way (Hilarius Bogbinder: William Asham, The Assessor, Frater Taciturnus) 1845; Concluding Postscript to The Philosophical Fragments (Johannes Climacus) 1846; an article in Fædrelandet, January 1846 (Frater Taciturnus). And he then goes on to tell about the significance that his chosen pseudonyms bear, why he writes under these, and what his relationship to them is, -questions that none the less continue to puzzle philosophers to this day and which seem be bear part of the key to the question of the person Kierkegaard and his philosophical writings

        HISTORY OF ENGLAND, From the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution of 1688. By David Hume, Esq. Continued to the Death of George the Second, by T. Smollett, M.D. With the Last Corrections and Improvements of the Authors... and a Short Memoir of Hume, Written by Himself

      London: Henry G. Bohn, 1846. A very attractive and rare edition complete in one volume. With two fine engraved portraits, one of Hume as frontispiece and one of Smollett at the start of the section dating from 1688 and with a separate half-title for Smollett's sectional portion of the book. Large, thick 4to, regally bound with Tudor roses and crowns in contemporary red morocco harking back to the Regency period of English history. The covers with multiple gilt fillet borders, the inner with large ornate corner-pieces, this surrounding a central gilt device of a coronet and Tudor rose on the upper cover and coronet and portcullis on the lower cover, the spine incorporating both rose and portcullis coronets again in the uppermost and lowermost of six floral gilt decorated and framed compartments between wide raised bands, one compartment gilt lettered and additional gilt lettering at the tail, and with gilt stippled board edges and wide elaborate gilt tooled turn-ins and a.e.g. xiv, 9pp contents, 1354pp, 60pp index. A very handsome and collectible copy, very finely bound, the binding strong and sturdy and well preserved with just a bit of expected and attractive age evidence, the hinges firm, the text fine and fresh with only a little spotting at the prelims and to the paper used for the portrait plates, that of Hume with a bit of light marginal staining not affecting the image. FIRST OF THE EDITION. A HIGHLY IMPORTANT HISTORICAL WORK, RARE IN ONE VOLUME FORMAT. It is especially unusual to discover a copy so firm and sturdy and in a binding clearly made for a gentleman of considerable wealth and importance. Charles Kendal Adams in his Manual of Historical Literature perhaps best describes this important work, “This work... has enjoyed the rank of a classic in historical literature from the day of its completion to the present time. In point of clearness, elegance, and simplicity of style it has never been surpassed.” This edition features many corrections by the author. Hume’s corrections were not so much on factual matters dealing with dates or events but an attempt to soften or correct some seditious Whig sentiments that he had allowed to creep into it. Speaking of his first edition Hume admitted, “I am sensible that [his writings] were too full of those foolish English prejudices which all nations and all ages disavow.” The work is considered by many to be the first truly great history of England, and that although historically imperfect, of outstanding intellectual conception. It is not a simple chronicle of events but instead an attempt by Hume to trace the many steps leading to the state of England as it was in his present time. He views history not only as a chain of actions and reactions but delves as well into the material and intellectual state of the nation throughout the various points of the time period covered.

        Autograph letter signed in full to [Ignaz] Seydlitz

      In January 1846, Mendelssohn had agreed to direct the twenty-eighth Lower Rhine Festival, scheduled for Pentecost in Aachen. There "he was joined by Jenny Lind in performances of Haydn's The Creation and Handel's Alexander's Feast. From Aachen he proceeded to Liège, to attend the première of Lauda Sion (11 June), in observance of the 600th anniversary of the feast of Corpus Christi, and to Cologne, where his setting of Schiller's An die Künstler (op.68) was performed at the Deutsch-Vlaemisches Sängerfest." During this time, Mendelssohn was also composing Elijah. The oratorio would be premièred at the Birmingham Music Festival in England on August 26, 1846. R. Larry Todd in Grove Music Online and Mendelssohn: A Life in Music, p. 513. Ignaz Seydlitz, a city councilman in Cologne to whom Mendelssohn wrote a number of letters, was the son-in-law of Erich Heinrich Verkenius (1776-1841); Verkenius was a friend and keen supporter of Mendelssoh, Bernhard Romberg and other composers. Allgemeine Musikalische Zeitung September 1841, No. 36, col. 733. In a letter written to Seydlitz dated Leipzig, May 11, 1846 (which follows the present letter), Mendelssohn writes to say that he has to put off his visit but that he will be with him at the Cologne Festival when "... you will find it all the more difficult to get rid of me!" It is evident from this letter, that Seydlitz, like his father-in-law, was a supporter of Mendelssohn. The composer continues "... if there should be something important to discuss, perhaps one of the gentleman... could also show me the arrangement for the score of my Bacchus Chorus." (Swann Auction Galleries, November 26, 2013, sale no. 2333, lot 208). A very personal letter demonstrating the expressed closeness Mendelssohn felt for his past friend and supporter. For other letters of Mendelssohn to Seydlitz see the Catalogue of the Mendelssohn Papers in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, Vol. I.. 1 page of a bifolium. Quarto. Dated Leipzig, April 4, 1846. In black ink. In German (with translation). In Mendelssohn's characteristically dense calligraphic hand. The composer thanks Seydlitz for his kind invitation and looks forward to his forthcoming holidays in Cologne. He has often thought of Seydlitz's family and home; he will visit them on his way to Aachen, and once again on his way back. Because he is traveling without his wife and children, his journey will be shorter than he would have liked. "I would have to be someone else if I did not accept [your invitation] with both hands, and, believe it or not... I think about the approaching holidays in Cologne with true joy... Because I may come to Aachen already on the way there, I will probably knock on your door on the evening of May 20th... and on June 12th, I will probably arrive for the second time." Mendelssohn proceeds to lament the death of Seydlitz's father-in-law Erich Heinrich Verkenius: "... whenever I passed through [Cologne] or thought about past days in Cologne, I thought about your father-in-law - and his personality and his house - again and again, and I missed him so much! You cannot of course bring him back to me, but we can (nevertheless) speak of him... and it will once again become as if I were with him... You don't even know how dear that time and that memory is to me." Creased at folds and corners; some minor wear; right edge slightly frayed; several small contemporary repairs to edges; light occasional staining; annotation in blue pencil to upper left corner.

        Account book. Rev'd I. Mickleburgh. 1846. 1847. 1848.

      [Upper cover so lettered, but actually January 1, 1846 - January 21, 1849]. Ms. volume, small 4to., approximately 335 closely written up pages (i.e. excluding blanks), in ink on ruled paper, original vellum boards, wanting the clasp, the binding a bit shaken but still in very good condition. Far, far more than an 'account book' in the usual sense but actually a detailed journal of the daily life of John Mickleburgh, a Church of England country parson living and working in the rural parishes of Wrotham and St. Mary Platt about half way between Sevenoaks and Maidstone in Kent. The journal makes absorbing reading, covering the whole period from 1st January 1846 to 21st January 1849, a complete block of some 159 weeks. John and his wife Fanny were probably then in their thirties and, by August 1848, had 6 children, born variously between 1835 and 1848. Appointed the first vicar of the new parish of St. Mary, Platt, John Mickleburgh was an enthusiastic priest and was particularly involved with his parish Sunday schools. The diary is full of descriptions of his work for the children, the appointment and support of the school mistress, Sarah Roots, and the building of a new school (he already had a new church built in 1843). The designs of the new school (Platt National School), the work with the architect, raising funds, the appointment of a new school master (Sarah Roots had gone), the management committee, curriculum and so forth, are all recorded in some detail. The school was opened on 30 November 1846 with 50 children on the roll. The diaries also faithfully record the mundane minutiae of parish life (and death), the weekly round of services, and the highs and lows of village life in all aspects of which the parson and his family were central players. The narrative part of the journal is in each case faced by detailed financial records of family and official expenses. This diary is a remarkable document, bringing to life as it does the stresses and strains, as well as the joys and the minor successes, of a conscientious country parson in early Victorian Kent. John Mickleburgh, admitted pensioner at St. Catherine's College, Cambridge, on July 4, 1836, was the son of James Mickleburgh Esq. of Thanet House, Margate, Kent. B.A. 1840: ordained deacon (Winchester, for Exeter), 1840; priest (Exeter) 1841. Curate of Tregony, Cornwall, 1841-4; vicar of Platt, Kent, 1845-9. Died June 12, 1849, less than five months after the last entry in his journal.

        In the Slave Market at Cairo

      1846 - ROBERTS, David. Original lithograph, In the Slave Market at Cairo. [London: F.G. Moon, 1846]. Hand-colored lithograph on onionskin, measuring 9-7/8 by 13-3/4 inches, on original mount, measuring 16-3/8 by 23-3/4 inches. $3000.Beautiful original hand-colored lithograph of the slave market at Cairo from the superb large format first issue of Roberts’ landmark work, Egypt and Nubia (only the first issue is hand-colored on onionskin and mounted on heavier card).Famed lithographer Louis Haghe produced splendid lithographs (including this print) of drawings Roberts made during his 1838-9 journey to Egypt, which were received with widespread enthusiasm when they appeared in 1846-9. “Among all the artists working in Egypt… [Roberts] stands head and shoulders above the rest, both for the number of sites and monuments he recorded and for his interesting presentation” (Clayton, 6). “Haghe’s skillful and delicate lithography, and his faithful interpretation of Roberts’ draughtsmanship and dramatic sense, combine in what are undoubtedly remarkable examples of… lithographic works. Particularly in the Egypt and Nubia section, one feels that the colossal subjects and broad vistas were ideally suited to Roberts’ talent” (Abbey, 341). Slight chipping and soiling to edges of mount; print slightly spotted. Overall, very good condition. Magnificent hand-colored lithograph from the most famous and desirable work on Egypt.

        A New Map of Texas, Oregon, and California.

      Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, 1846. - Single sheet (20 ¾ x 19 ¼ inches). 46-page "Accompaniment to Mitchell's New Map of Texas, Oregon, and California" (some spotting at beginning and end). Fine folding lithographed map with original hand color in full (separation along folds, some browning). Original publisher's blind stamped morocco gilt, preserved in a modern half green morocco slipcase, marbled boards with printed paper spine label (top half of backstrip lacking). Provenance: With contemporary manuscript ownership inscription of Augustus ?Scronsius. From the important cartographical library of Warren Heckrotte, his sale, Rare Cartography, Exploration and Voyages, Part II, December 3, 2015, Lot 192. First edition. Rare first edition of this important map of the West at a time of geographic discovery as well as political upheaval and change. The map is issued with the 46-page text "Accompaniment to Mitchell's New Map of Texas, Oregon, and California, with the Regions Adjoining." As noted in the Accompaniment, Texas has recently been annexed into the United States, and California is in limbo, "Upper California. This part of Mexico was declared independent in 1845. It has of late attracted much attention in the United States; a number of Americans are already settled in it, and many others are preparing to emigrate thither." Regarding Oregon, the Accompaniment declares that "the United States have an indubitable claim to the whole region of Oregon, from N. lat 42º to 54º 40', yet the government has several times proposed, from motives of accommodation, to adopt the 49th parallel of latitude as the dividing line." The proposed boundary line along the 49th parallel is shown on the map, though the coloring of Oregon still reflects joint occupation up to N. lat 54º 40'. "In the Upper California portion, Fremont is carefully followed, while further north Wilkes is followed. The boundary (to be) with Mexico is imperfectly shown but Texas appears with the magnified boundaries, including Santa Fe, of the 1844 Emory. The various claims to Oregon appear. The Accompaniment is of particular interest, containing perhaps the clearest statement of Oregon and California facts that came out of the period just prior to settlement of the former's boundaries and inclusion of the latter in the United States" (Wheat).

        Dealings with the Firm of Dombey and Son 20 Parts in 19, with a Previously Unknown Earliest Ad in Part XIX/XX

      London (October 1846 - April 1848): Bradbury and Evans. First Edition. Original Wraps. Hablot K. Browne (Phiz). Octavo, 20 parts in 19, in the original green wrappers. ALL wrappers are correct. All Advertisers, slips and rear ads are present, except for the scarce "Letts Son & Steer" slip in part XI. 40 inserted plates by Hablot K. Browne (Phiz), who also designed the green wrappers. All plates are very good to fine. The Duke of Leeds copy, with his ownership signature on front wrap of part VIII. First issue of text in part XI, with "Capatin" for "Captain" on page 324, last line; first issue Advertiser in part XIII, with "October 1847" in perfect type. Part XIV, first issue text, with the word "if" omitted on page 426, line 9. Part XIX/XX with the first issue vignette title, erroneously showing Captain Cuttle's hook on his left arm. MESSAGE TO HATTON & CLEAVER: Although Hatton & Cleaver calls for the Chapman & Hall ad in part XIX/XX to be dated "April 1848" as the earliest state, the present copy is dated "March 1848." We know of just one other copy of this earliest ad. Eight line errata. There are a couple of "firsts" in Dombey and Son. The plate "On the dark road" in part XVIII is the first of what became known as the "dark plates." dombey is also the first appearance of the "horizontal plates" on which the subject is rotated 90 degrees. An outstanding set in every respect, given the rare earliest state of the ad in part XIX/XX, the plates, all very good to fine, the bright wrappers and the earliest state of the text. Housed in a custom purple quarter leather slipcase. All this and more: the present copy has a pedigree. It is from the famed Hatton & Cleaver collection.

        Am Ammersee". Zwei Herren - bei einem der beiden handelt es sich um den Bildhauer Georg Mahr (1889-1967) – Zigaretten rauchend.

      - Feder in Braun, über Bleistift, auf bräunlichem Velin, rechts signiert „Lino Salini", unten betitelt. 25,8:17,2 cm. Salini, Kind italienischer Eltern, lebte und arbeitete in Frankfurt als Zeichner und Karikaturist. Er wird oft mit Heinrich Zille verglichen, da er die Motive für seine Zeichnungen gern einem spezifischen Milieu entnahm: den Sachsenhäuser Apfelwein-Schenken. Salini erhielt erste Anleitungen im Malen und Zeichnen von Antonio Becker (1846-1915), Gustav Herold (1839-1927) und Alois Penz (1854-1910). Später hat er sich in der Städelschule bei Wilhelm Amandus Beer (1837-1907) und Emil Gies (geb. 1872) weiter ausgebildet. Seine Karikaturen und Bilder Frankfurter Originale finden sich noch heute in zahlreichen Wirtschaften. Sein Nachlaß wird im Frankfurter Institut für Stadtgeschichte verwaltet.

      Haim Joseph Hallegua (Chaim Yosef Chaligoa) of Cochin, India., Bombay, India 1846 - First leaf is a facsimile. The binding may well be contemporary (the original one.) Yudlov 895. Yaari 656. Yerushalmi 97-98. Vinograd Bombay 4 Abraham Jemal. Bombay 1846 C.E. Complete. 41 leaves: [5], 1-lamed dalet, [1], lamed hey. Lithographic printing. Seder Hagada bilshon HaKodesh veIm perush shel Marathi. [= Passover Haggadah in Hebrew with Marathi translation] Translated into Marathi and published by Haim Joseph Hallegua. (Chaim Yosef Chaligoa) of Cochin, India. Passover Haggadah for the Bene Israel community in India. This is the first printed Indian Haggadah, the first illustrated Indian Haggadah; the first Haggada in Marathi, and the first Haggadah according to the traditions of the Bene Israel community. Hebrew and Marathi on facing pages. The depiction of Moshe and Aharon on the title page is based on the illustration in the Amsterdam 1712 edition. With 13 vignettes depicting the 13 simanim, the stages, of the seder, "kadesh", "urchatz" etc. The final illustration displays the constituent ritual elements of the Seder plate, all represented in a distinctly Indian style. The Marathi speaking Jews of India known as the Bene Israel ("Children of Israel) had for millennia maintained the basic elements of Judaism (circumcision, dietary laws, the Sabbath, certain fasts and festivals, and the recitation of Shema Yisrael), despite their near-total isolation from the rest of world Jewry. When they began to settle in Bombay toward the end of the eighteenth century, their first encounter with normative Judaism occurred through contact with the Cochin Jews of the Malabar coast. Eager now to assimilate the many elements of postbiblical rabbinic Judaism that had been lost to them, they built their first synagogue in Bombay in 1796. The subsequent arrival in the city of Jews from Cochin and from the oriental countries enriched their opportunities for Jewish learning and stimulated a religious revival of which the Haggadah of 1846 is but one example.

A RARE COMPLETE RUN. A rare complete run of this monthly publication. Published in the immediate aftermath of Brazilian independence when Portugal sought to cement its position in Goa and Macau and expand in Africa. This is a comprehensive digest of Portugal's colonial agenda. The Annaes includes important articles on Angola and Mozambique, Goa, Macau, Timor and even Solor island. Dr. Francisco Jose de Lacerda e Almeida's diary documenting his travels in Central Africa is serialised. There is a great deal of material devoted to the Malaysia and the Malay archipelago generally and even several articles on North America. Many of these are the first published accounts of Portuguese voyages and expeditions, and are augmented by government documents, statistical information as well as accounts of the most important international expeditions of the time: Dumont d'Urville's voyage to the Antarctic (1837-40), Dupetit-Thouars' circumnavigation (1836-39), James Clark Ross - a printed extract of a letter written on the Erebus, Canadian Arctic exploration by the Hudson's Bay Company vessels, Wilkes's US Exploring Expedition in the South Pacific in 1838-40 et al. The publication also include texts of international anti-slavery treaties, documents on exports and imports, articles on the latest navigation techniques and machines, e.g. Steam ships, et al. There is even a review of Frederic Marryat's Romancos Maritimos. The charts include the harbors of Lisbon, Goa, Quellimane (Mozambique, hand coloured), Dilly (Timor), Mossamedes (modern Namibia, Angola) and Lobito (Benguela province of Angola); there are also folding plans of the city of Goa, a Portuguese fort in Pungo an Dongo (Angola); a topographical chart of the National Forest of Leiria (Portugal) and others. Plates include two views of the rapids de São Salvador da Pesqueira on the river Douro (Portugal) - before and after the works which removed the rapids and made the river navigable at this point; a nicely executed large folding view of the façade of the famous ruin of St. Paul's Cathedral in Macau, a reprint of a document in Chinese, a draft of a vapour vessel, a statistical table of the population of the Portuguese Goa and others. The volumes break down as follows: Volume I contains 11 issues and a supplement (pp. 529-33), followed by an index (3 pp.), as described in Fonseca, and "Estatutos da Associação Maritima" (12 pp., paginated separately), which is not mentioned in Fonseca. In volume II, there are 12 issues. Volumes III, IV and V each contain 24 issues: 12 in the "Parte Official," 12 more in the "Parte Não Official." In volume VI, only 4 issues each of the "Parte Official" and "Parte Não Official" were published. Fonseca calls for only 1 folding plate and 3 maps in the "Parte Não Official" of volume III, where this copy has 3 plates and 4 maps. Fonseca also fails to mention the single leaf preceding the text in both "Partes" of volume IV. Innocêncio I, 72; Fonseca, pp21-22; Sabin 1577a
