      1846. PERSOZ, J. Traité Théorique et Practique de l'Impression des Tissues. Four text volumes. [6], lx, 569; [4], 558; [4], 458, 32 pp. of ads; [4], 560 pp. Illustrated with 429 fabric samples mounted throughout; Atlas volume with 20 plates of which three are chromo-lithographs. Text volumes: 8vo., 210 x 140 mm, bound in publisher's quarter-calf over maroon pebbled boards, spine elaborately gilt. Atlas bound in contemporary cloth bearing the arms of the Society of Writers to the Signet. Paris: Victor Masson, 1846. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. Persoz (1805-1868), a chemist and Professor in the School of Pharmacy at Strasbourg, wrote this work for the Société d'Encouragement pour l'Industrie Nationale (founded 1802) for which he won a medal, and more importantly they agreed to publish the work. The first volume describes the technical aspects of colouring and chemistry, while the following volumes include vibrant fabric samples from the principal calico printers in England, Scotland, Alsace, Switzerland, Normandy and Paris. George Seurat, the famed pointillist painter, was an early adherent of Persoz's work. Martin Kemp, in his book The Science of Art, wrote that "Persoz's brilliantly illustrated Traite attracted Seurat's attention, to the extent that the painter transcribed a section of the text." He was much taken by the Indian origins of the dyes used and the patterns created with them. Seurat regarded them in terms of the mystical and the occult rather than in the western ideas light and dark and scientific theory, although he was also well acquainted with the writings of Chevreul. This is a particularly nice set with all four hundred and twenty-nine fabric samples present, each with its own tissue guard. There is some slight soiling in the atlas, nevertheless a fine, crisp set of an important rarity in textile design and colour theory. Poggendorff II, 109. Bolton I, 732. Darmstaedter 440.

        South Australia and its Mines with an Historical Sketch of the Colony under its Several Administrations, to the Period of Captain Grey's Departure

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1846. Octavo, frontispiece and five plates (including map of the Rivoli Bay district bound into the text); with a large handcoloured folding map measuring 684 x 535 mm. in front sleeve; some foxing of the plates (typical of this paper stock) and a little preliminary toning, yet a handsome copy with the advertisements in original publishers gilt decorated brown cloth. Inscribed to Captain FitzRoy of the Beagle. Inscribed by the author to Captain Robert FitzRoy, commander of the Beagle and companion of Charles Darwin, who later served as governor of New Zealand. This well preserved copy is an example of the scarcer issue with a loose folding Arrowsmith map in the front sleeve.Following his controversial support of Maori land claims, FitzRoy was dismissed as governor of New Zealand in April of 1845 and returned to England later that year. Having discovered copper at Kapunda in South Australia in 1842, Francis Dutton returned to England in 1845 seeking capable men to work the deposit. Here he wrote South Australia and its Mines and had it published by Boone early the following year. It appears likely that the two men became acquainted during 1846, at which time Dutton presented this copy to FitzRoy.

        Contarini Fleming

      Leipzig - Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1846 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. One of Disraeli's novels, with a portrait of the author to frontispiece. Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, KG, PC, FRS, (21 December 1804 - 19 April 1881) was a British Prime Minister, parliamentarian, Conservative statesman and literary figure. He served in government for three decades, twice as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Before and during his political career, Disraeli was well known as a literary and social figure, although his novels are not generally regarded as a part of the Victorian literary canon. He mainly wrote romances, of which Sybil and Vivian Grey are perhaps the best-known today. He is exceptional among British Prime Ministers for having gained equal social and political renown. Disraeli turned towards literature after his financial disaster, motivated in part by a desperate need for money, and brought out his first novel, Vivian Grey, in 1826. After producing a Vindication of the English Constitution, and some political pamphlets, Disraeli followed up Vivian Grey with a series of novels, The Young Duke (1831), Contarini Fleming (1832), Alroy (1833), Venetia and Henrietta Temple (1837). Condition: In a half calf bindingwith cloth covered boards. Externally, generally smart with only minor bumping and wear to extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean throughout but with slight foxing to endpapers and heavy foxing to title page only. Overall: VERY GOOD.

Nach seinem Ausscheiden aus dem Amt (1826) wurde die Stelle auf Betreiben des designierten Direktors Peter von Cornelius nicht mehr besetzt, da dieser "einen Lehrstuhl für Genre- und Landschaftsmalerei... für überflüssig" hielt (zitiert nach: Alfred Kuhn, Peter Cornelius und die geistigen Strömungen seiner Zeit, Berlin, 1921, S. 160). 1817 wurde dem Künstler die persönliche, 1833 der erbliche Adel verliehen.

      1846. [the first book of young "George] Critically Examined by Dr. David Friedrich Strauss. Translated from the Fourth German Edition. In Three Volumes. London: Chapman, Brothers, 1846. Original blind-stamped purple-brown cloth. First Edition of the first book with which young Marian Evans was involved (as translator). Strauss was a theologian schooled in the philosophy of Hegel; his groundbreaking Das Leben Jesu aroused much interest because it applied the "myth theory" to the life of Jesus, treated the Gospel narrative like any other historical work, and denied all supernatural elements. Marian Evans began working on this when she was in her mid-twenties, when she joined the young circle of the Brays and the Hennells, skeptics and rationalists who encouraged her to question much of her religious upbringing. The circumstances behind this book were curious, to say the least; quoting at length from Crompton,~For some months Charles Hennell had been in love with Rufa [nickname of Elizabeth Rebecca] Brabant... But Hennell had a weakness of the lungs and Dr. Brabant had not approved of him as a prospective son-in-law... For two years the matter dragged on with Dr. Brabant adamant and the lovers equally determined. Finally, in 1843, when Rufa had been left a little money of her own, they decided that... parental approval or not they would marry... The wedding was fixed for the autumn and Marian agreed to be bridesmaid...~Both Rufa and her father were scholars. Up to the time of her marriage Rufa had been translating David Friedrick Strauss's Life of Jesus which had been published in 1842 and which had caused a great stir... But now a complication had arisen through Rufa's marriage: neither she nor her husband felt that she would have enough time to continue the work. Dr. Brabant, feeling lonely at the loss of his daughter, and perhaps impressed by Marian's studious ambitions, invited her on a visit to his home at Devizes to 'take his daughter's place'. The resulting visit... had unfortunate consequences.~Dr. Brabant, then aged sixty-three, a German scholar and a friend of Strauss, was an indiscreet, opinionated man, with a craving for adulation. Marian, aged twenty-four, was impressionable, ardent, and apt to lose her head... They read, walked and talked together and Marian never wearied of the doctor's society... Unfortunately, however, in her delight at this new friendship, she had overlooked the fact that Dr. Brabant had a wife. Mrs. Brabant, who had lost her sight, was all amiability to begin with, but, after a time, prompted by an unmarried sister who lived with them, she became uneasy. The uneasiness turned to jealousy and there was a scene. According to John Chapman [publisher of this book]... the doctor's wife declared that Marian must leave immediately and never set foot in the house again...~In spite of the unfortunate ending to Marian's friendship with Dr. Brabant he had seen enough of her to realize her intellectual capabilities. Early in 1844 his son-in-law, Charles Hennell, came to Marian and begged her to take over from his wife the translating of Strauss's Life of Jesus. Marian agreed, though not without doubts. It was an arduous task and not altogether the kind of work to appeal to her...~[By 1845] the work on the Strauss translation [which included Latin, Greek and Hebrew as well as German] was becoming increasingly exhausting and Marian began to suffer again from headaches... As she got nearer to the end of Christ's story she resented Strauss more and more. She was not a Christian herself but she loved and admired Jesus and the ruthless heavy desecration of the German's way of thinking, completely divesting Christ of all divinity, caused her a profound depression...~At last, in that spring of 1846, it was finished. It had entailed two and a quarter years of labour and her financial reward for it was £20.~Even then, the book was barely published, as the people who had promised to do so had in the interim forgotten their promises. Eventually it was accomplished, with Strauss writing a new Preface, but with the provision that the translator's name not appear in the book. The Strauss translation did, nonetheless, confer upon her a certain prestige, and it did establish a valuable contact with the young publisher John Chapman. Not having quite had enough, apparently, she subsequently translated Feuerbach's THE ESSENCE OF CHRISTIANITY (Chapman 1854 -- the only book ever issued under her real name), followed in 1858 by her first original work, SCENES OF CLERICAL LIFE. (A second UK edition of THE LIFE OF JESUS would not appear until 1892.)~THE LIFE OF JESUS appears in five different binding states, with priority (if any) uncertain: the two most-often encountered are dark green cloth with "Chapman Brothers" at the foot of the spines, with an undated ad catalogue at the end of Vol I (Baker & Ross's "A" binding), and this purple-brown cloth with "London | John Chapman" at the foot of the spines, without an ad catalogue (B&R's "D"). The set, still with the original pale yellow endpapers intact, is in very good, original condition: there is some wear at some corners, two rear covers have some damp-marks, and one front endpaper is likewise damp-marked; as always with this color cloth, the spines are sunned from purple to brown. Although the number of copies printed is not known, this is a rather scarce book today: most copies that surface do so rebound, and this is only the second copy in original cloth we have offered in our 35 years in business.
