        LE MONDE TEL QU'IL SERA .

      Paris: Edite par W. Coquebert, n.d. [1846] - Small quarto, pp. [1-4] 1-324, engraved illustrations by Bertall, O. Penguilly and St.-Germain, ten on inserted plates, numerous others in the text, original decorated cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind and gold, spine panel stamped in gold, marbled endpapers. First edition. Versins calls this the first detailed forecast of the future (aside perhaps from Webb's THE MUMMY, 1827) to explore the malignant repercussions of advancing technology. With its extravagant and grotesque illustrations, it makes a fitting bookend to Robida's LA VINGTIEME SIECLE (1883), steam versus electricity, to bracket the first flowering of French dystopian literature, serving as a model, despite its faults, of all the futuristic nightmares that followed, even into the twentieth century (Versins, pp. 822-824). Souvestre projects Marthe and Maurice, his observers from the present day, into the year 3000 and sets them down in Tahiti, where scantily-clad people live in a machine-ridden age. Pipes dispense not only water in homes but fire, light and fresh air. An endless roll of newsprint displays the breaking news of the hour (sound like the Internet?). The very clouds are mined for water and electricity. Infants are handed over to steam-operated feeding machines before being classified by phrenologists and assigned a purpose in life corresponding to their physiognomy. They are then moved to greenhouses where the correct degree of heat ensures the maturation of their brains. All learning is based on the memorization of mnemonic devices. Criminals are either given very lenient or very severe treatment, the latter sent to solitary confinement until they have devolved into complete stupefaction. The technology of 3000 is dominated by steam (including steam-powered shoes) and balloons. Fanciful flying machines present some of the most charming images. Versins credits the little-known Charles Nodier's 1833 compositions, HURLUBLEU and LEVIATHAN-LE-LONG as influences on Souvestre. Versins, Encyclopédie de l'Utopie, des Voyages Extraordinaires, et de la Science Fiction, pp. 822- 24. Cloth worn at edges, splits to cloth along outer joints repaired, considerable foxing throughout (regrettably common to this book), a sound, good copy.

        A Squatter. A Visit to the Antipodes

      Smith, Elder, & Co, London 1846 - Octavo, lithograph frontispiece, vignettes on title and final page, some light foxing, old owner's inscription; a very good copy in the original blindstamped publisher's red cloth, upper cover with gilt embossed kangaroo, a little faded.

He was in Adelaide during Sturt's departure for Central Australia in 1844 and gives a colourful description of that event.The frontispiece is a marvellous depiction of "Poodna Williamy" or "William the Light-footed", a South Australian Aborigine, after the original sketch by Lloyd himself.

        William Baillie (1723 Killbride (Carlow) - London 1810). Selbstbildnis, 1783

      - Wilhelm STEINHAUSEN (1846 Sorau-Frankfurt 1924), Die Kinderschar, Bleistift -- Technik: -- Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts monogrammiert: "WSt". -- Maße: -- 11,5 x 22 cm -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand, Papier am Rand mit minimalsten Gebrauchsspuren. -- Beschreibung: -- Seit Mitte der 1880er Jahre widmete sich Wilhelm Steinhausen intensiv der Porträtmalerei. Vor allem seine Mäzeneund Künstlerkollegen, aber auch seine Familie hielt er in zahlreichen Gemälden und Zeichnungen fest. Er porträtiertesie gerne bei alltäglichen Beschäftigungen. Seine Kinder einzeln oder zu zweit, seine Frau mit und ohne Kinder,Selbstporträts des Künstlers mit seiner Frau, beinahe alle Konstellationen sind in seinem OOeuvre überliefert. Erheiratete seine Frau Ida 1880, seine sechs Kinder wurden zwischen 1881 und 1893 geboren. Es ist sehr wahrscheinlich, dass es sich bei der kleinen Skizze um ein Gruppenporträt seiner Kinder handelt. Es fälltnicht schwer, sich auszumalen, wie sich an einem sonnigen Tag alle Kinder für einen kurzen Augenblick amWohnungsfenster versammelt haben. Die Linien sind schnell, wirken fast hektisch. Lediglich drei Gesichter werdenangedeutet, sonst muss sich der Künstler auf den Umriss der Figuren beschränken. Die Kinder sind in Bewegung,deswegen wurden manche Silhouetten doppelt gezeichnet. Gleich wird dieser Moment vorbei sein. Der Künstler wollteihn aber unbedingt festhalten. --

        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.

      T. Bluett,, Hobart: 1846 - Original lithograph with period hand color, from the rare folio 'Tasmania Illustrated' by John Skinner Prout (1806 - 1876). This is a lovely color view of Hobart, with the new road (really a pretty country lane), moving diagonally from left to right, past a few large buildings, into the town, with the cathedral and the blue bay in the distance. A young woman and small child are seated on a large rock in the foreground, and Mt. Wellington is at the far right. Signed by the artist at the lower center, slightly to the right, within the image, 'J. S. Prout'.In the 1820s trade blossomed, with Hobart becoming a major wool trade port. Shops were established and fine Georgian sandstone buildings went up, such as the Presbyterian church (1824), Salamanca Place warehouses (1830s), the Theatre Royal (1837) and elegant private homes such as Narryna (1828). The Hobart Hebrew Congregation Synagogue was consecrated in 1845; it is the oldest synagogue building in Australia, built in the unusual Egyptian Revival style. Also in 1845, the first known Australian exhibition of pictures, arranged by John Skinner Prout, took place in Hobart.Unnumbered, but plate [6] of the period hand-colored version of the print. It also appeared in a sepia edition highlighted in white; this is not the sepia edition.) Paper size: 17 1/2 x 14 1/4", image: 15 1/2 x 11 1/2".

Thackeray envied him his powers of observation, while William Morris considered him 'a master of life' and ranked him with Dickens. In The Analysis of the Hunting Field, Surtees offers wry, fatherly advice in this satiric romp through the key archetypes of the fox hunt. As Lord Denham says in his introduction, "this should be required reading for anyone connected with hunting. From the right sort of Master to the wrong sort, from the hunting nobleman to the whip and from the blacksmith to the braggart with horses to sell we find the people 'pon the ?'orses are much the same as today."?"More people are flattered into virtue than were ever bullied out of vice?" (Surtees, Analysis of the Hunting Field).Tooley 470; Siltzer, p. 73; Podeschi 177; Schwerdt II p.232.

        PART OF THE PORTICO OF EDFOU [An Excellent View of the Temple's Famous Northern Portico; Being an Original Hand-Coloured Lithograph From] THE HOLY LAND, SYRIA, IDUMEA, ARABIA, EGYPT AND NUBIA

      London F.G. Moon and Co. 1846 - From the Standard Folio First Edition, limited to 500 sets only. A single original hand-coloured lithographic plate drawn on stone by Louis Haghe after David Roberts' paintings done on location in 1838. Printed on a single folio sheet 24" x 17", the captioned image, is 20" x 13", now presented in cream mounting boards 30" x 24" glazed behind clear mylar. Beautifully hand-coloured to the highest standards of the time. An example in excellent condition, clean, fresh, beautifully preserved. FROM One of the most desirable of all travel and COLOURplate books. This is an especially attractive plate showing the northern portico of one of the best preserved temples in Egypt at a time when most of the portico was still buried beneath shifting desert sand. Three winged sun disc are visible above the opening, the lower of which is brightly painted. The temple, dedicated to the falcon god Horus, was built in the Ptolemaic period between 237 and 57 BC. A group of brightly dressed visitors, appearing tiny between the massive columns lend an excellent sense of scale to this fine image. We have a good number of impressive images from the Standard Folio Edition of this classic work available for purchase. As well as many views of Egypt there are also views available of Tyre, Nubia, Petra, Sinai, the Jordan, Sidon and Baalbec. Please inquire for further details. In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast.that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest."

      New York: Published by Daniel Adee, 176 Fulton Street [Turney & Lockwood's Stereo], 1846. First American edition, the rare first printing, not even noted in Gray. The first edition was published in 1687. Frontispiece portrait taken from the bust in the Royal Observatory of Greenwich, diagrams in text. 8vo. Original green cloth.

Stuck on endpapers. First American edition, the rare first printing, not even noted in Gray. The first edition was published in 1687. Frontispiece portrait taken from the bust in the Royal Observatory of Greenwich, diagrams in text. 8vo. The first English edition of Newton's "Principia" was translated by Andrew Motte, a mathematician, who with his brother Benjamin, the publisher, had edited the abridged "Philosophical transactions." This first English edition was published in 1729 from the third and definitive Latin edition of 1726. Newton's "A Treatise of the System of the World" was first published in English in 1728. The American edition bears a dedication and an introduction directed to teachers, "If to educate means, not so much to store the memory with symbols and facts, as to bring forth the faculties of the soul and to develope them to the full by healthy nurture and a hardy discipline, then, what so effective to the accomplishment of that end as the study of Geometrical Synthesis? ... Let the Principia then, be gladly welcomed into every Hall where a True Teacher presides." "The greatest work in the history of science ... the "Principia" provided the great systhesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity ... for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens" (PMM).

        Reglamento de la Direccion de Colonizacion

      México: Imprenta del Aguila, 1846. First edition. Contemporary calf. A very good copy, boards lightly scuffed, some faded ink spots on title page, small bookplate on front pastedown.. 22 pp. José María Lafragua (1813-1881) was put in charge of the newly reorganized Department of Colonization in late November 1846 and issued these regulations in early December (while his counterpart, Ambassador José María Luis Mora was in London trying to encourage European immigration). Prices were set at a minimum of 4 reales an acre, except for those of Baja California, where they would have a price of 2 reales. The land will be put up at auction at the price and on the conditions established by the decree. The purchaser was bound to settle the land with at least two families, of five individuals each, per square mile, within the space of two years. The new foreign settlers were to be considered as citizens of the republic from their arrival in the colony. Most important was paragraph 382, which attempted to guard against further incursion by the United States or Texas. "Who may not be Colonists.-1. That none of the colonists who may be introduced therein shall be a subject or native of or come from a nation whose territory lies contiguous to the lands which are to be granted, nor of a power with which the republic may be at war, save in the cases in which the government may make exceptions for special reasons and motives." This was followed by a prohibition of slavery. As Streeter noted "[T]hese regulations, which were promulgated December 4, 1846, nominally prevailed in California at the time." The issue of colonization would become even more important after the defeat suffered by the Mexican army by the U.S. in 1847. OCLC locates ten copies: Huntington, LA Law, Berkeley, Yale, Princeton, Brigham Young, Univ. Houston, Texas at Austin, Texas at Arlington, and BN Mexico. Provenance: A. Salazar (bookplate).

        A Circular of the High Council to the Members of the Church of Jesus Christ Op (sic) Latter Day Saints, and to all whom it may concern

      1846 - Folio broadside. Printed in three columns, with decorative floral border. Slight wrinkling near the bottom edge, otherwise fine. First Announcement of the Mormons Going to the Rockies In this broadside the Church announces that in the Spring they will send a company of pioneers to the Rocky Mountains to open the way for Mormon settlement. The intense anti-Mormon persecution in Hancock County, Illinois led to this decision. This broadside was probably intended to assuage the anti-Mormon sentiments against the citizens of Nauvoo, but the Saints were forced to evacuate Nauvoo by the end of January, during the coldest winter months. As famed western historian Howard Lamar noted: "Young now set out to accomplish in a wilderness what Smith had failed to do in settled America - establish a permanent sanctuary and kingdom for the Saints.Thousands of Mormons followed Young in 1846 on the Mormon Trail to a temporary shelter at Winter Quarters (near Omaha, Nebraska), from which he led the first wagon company to Salt Lake City in July 1847." Records indicate only two copies at auction in the last fifty years. This broadside was not in the Streeter sale of Americana. Not in Byrd's Illinois Imprints.
