        Essai sur la numismatique des satrapies et de la Phénicie sous les rois Achaeménides.

      Paris, Firmin Didot frères 1846 - in-4, [6]-120-[4] pp., avec 17 planches hors-texte sous serpentes, "in fine", demi-veau bouteille, dos lisse orné de filets et caissons dorés, tranches mouchetées (reliure de l'époque). Coiffe supérieure rognée. Unique édition, peu commune. La curiosité archéologique du huitième duc de Luynes, Honoré-Théodoric d'Albert (1802-1867) s'étendait à beaucoup de domaines, mais c'est la numismatique qui constituait véritablement sa spécialité : cet essai forme une des premières tentatives pour débrouiller une matière à l'époque très confuse, et encore exposée sans aucun principe de classement.

        Karnac

      London 1846 - David Roberts' most famous work, "Views in the Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt, & Nubia", was published by E. G. Moon in London between 1846 and 1849. This work is known for its extremely detailed dutone lithographed plates which depict various scenes of the Holy Land and the Middle East. This particular lithograph features 19th century hand-coloring. --- Roberts journeyed to the Holy Land in 1838 where he spent much time depicting the architecture, costumes, and landscapes that he found there. The culmination of all his efforts, Views in the Holy Land., is indeed one of the greatest travel works ever completed. George Croly wrote the wonderfully descriptive text, when available, and Louis Haghe turned Roberts' drawings into the magnificent lithographs seen here. --- Overall Excellent. There may be an occasional imperfections to be expected with age. Some of the plates have some minor paper imperfections from handling or age at the edges. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions.

        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.

        Daegelyksche aenteekening van alle de goederen te verwen komende bij Joannes Baptista Joffroy begonst 1734. [Mechelen (Malines, Belgium), 1 April 1734-31 August 1759]. Folio (32.5 x 21 cm). Manuscript journal of accounts in dark brown ink on paper, written in Dutch in an upright gothic hand, with each page ruled in double and single lines to make 4 or 5 columns and up to 22 rows, decorated with hundreds of pen flourishes, three forming pictures of birds as tailpieces and with a decorative cross to begin 1750 (some other years with a simpler cross), a couple headings with additions in red. Contemporary vellum.

      For Jean-Baptiste Joffroy and his family: "J.-B. Joffroy, de Malines", Bibliophile Belge III (1846), pp. 379-382; Installé, Patriciërs en ambachtslui in het stadsbestuur te Mechelen (1982), pp. 87-92. Journal of accounts of the cloth dyeing factory of Joannes Baptista Joffroy (1699/1708-post 1772?) in Mechelen (Malines) in the Southern Netherlands (now Belgium) under the Austrian Habsburgs, beginning on 1 April 1734 and ending with 21 August 1759. Most of the entries are for accounts receivable, but the journal also records deliveries of materials and goods to the firm and payments made for them, as well as other transactions or events, occasionally not monetary. The entries record a wide variety of cloths, almost entirely wollens: most common are laken, serge and “kastor" but also flannel, "Fries", "perpetuan", ratiné, etc., and sometimes combinations. An unusually detailed note, apparently for incoming cloth includes "tricots". The entry usually indicates the colour the cloth was dyed, most often green or blue, but also yellow, bay (reddish brown), red and others. Some are more specific. The records of goods received and their payments are especially interesting for the materials and their prices, recording indigo, sandalwood, vitriol and other dyestuffs. The entries identify hundreds of customers.Joannes Baptista Joffroy was the only surviving child and successor of Jan Bartholomeus Joffroy (1669-1740), not only a cloth dyer, but dean of the dyers guild in Mechelen.With a small brown stain running into the text of 1 leaf and occasional minor smudges, ink spots or minor marginal stains, but the journal remains generally in very good condition. The binding is dirty, with some chips and tears, especially in the backstrip, and with the spine concaved. An essential primary source for any study of the cloth-dyeing trade.

        Le Moniteur des Indes Orièntales et Occidentales, recueil de memoires et de notices scientifiques et industriels, de nouvelles et de faits, importants concernant les possessions Néerlandaises, d'Asie et d'Amérique. avec la coopération de plusieurs membres de la Société des Arts et de Sciences de Batavia. I-III(1-4).

      - La Haye et Batavia, Belinfante et l'Imprimerie de l'État, 1846-1848. In two volumes, and four issues. Large 4to (30.7 x 23.5; 32.0 x 25 cm). Volume I (1845-1847): title page, frontispiece (portrait), vi pp., half title to Première partie (sciences, arts et industrie), 342 pp., half title to Deuxième partie (revue coloniale), 128 pp; 5 maps (of which 4 larger, folding), two plates of which one hand-coloured (of 3). Contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards. Spine with gilt ornaments and title. Marbled endpapers, speckled edges; Volume II [12 issues in 10] (1847-1848), half titles to Première partie and Deuxième partie, ii, 392, 116, [ii], viii pp.; engraved portrait (to be used as frontispiece), four large, folded maps, and four plates on three sheets; Volume III [four issues in three] (1848): 148, 32 pp. Both volumes in original printed wrappers. = An expensive (originally sold for 18 Dutch florins per volume!) and now very rare periodical, complete in three volumes, of which we hold the first two and parts 1-3 of the third. The purpose of this important work was to disseminate better knowledge of the Dutch Colonies (mainly on Indonesia) internationally, for which reason it was published in French. Each volume contains many interesting historical, biographical and scientific contributions by such authors as the ichthyologist P. Bleeker, the explorer and geologist Junghuhn, the medical doctor orientalist and Japanologist Von Siebold himself, the zoologist S. Müller, the geographer Melvill de Carnbee, etc. For example: S. Müller, "Notice sur quelques points de la Nouvelle-Guinée"; Bleeker, "Notice sur la topographie physico-médicale de Batavia: Végétation et faune"; Siebold, "Essai historique, statistique et politique sur le commerce du Japon"; and, by le Baron P. Melvill de Carnbee, the fine large, double-folded and tinted "Carte générale des possessions Néerlandaises aux Indes- Orientales, accompagnée de tableaux indiquant la latitude et la longitude des principaux points", which shows that two sultanates on Sumatra were still independent, and a second, large folding chart showing the principal mountains (often volcanoes) of Sumatra, Java, Celebes (Sulawesi), Borneo (Kalimantan), etc. Of special interest is the coloured plate of Javanese fruits, meant to be an advert for an extremely rare elephant folio publication on such by J. Schnell. The third volume has some large papers on fish, by Bleeker. Von Siebold was editor of the first volume only. The first volume is in a nice, contemporary binding; the second is in original printed wrappers, as issued. One plate with a view at Neira (Moluccas) is lacking. A few wrappers with some fraying and chipping, but mostly very good. Some light foxing and toning, but nearly all pages, maps and plates clean. A very good set. Sabin, 49982.

With a boldly painted scene of three riders on horseback involved in a deer [?]-hunting chase (one of the riders is a woman). Painted circa 1990s-2000. PROVENANCE: Major-general John North Crealock (1837-1895). He and his brother, Lieutenant-General Henry Hope Crealock, were both engaged in deer hunting. A book was issued, written by Henry and edited after Henry's death, by his brother John, Deer-Stalking in the Highlands of Scotland, suggesting this fore-edge painting may be relating to deer hunting rather than the usual foxhunting. However the painting is clearly executed long after the ownership of John North Crealock.

        [WWV 70]. Tannhäuser und der Sängerkrieg auf Wartburg, romantische Oper in drei Acten... Völlständiger Clavierauszug... Preis 8 Thlr. [Piano-vocal score]

      Dresden: C.F. Meser [PNs 325; 325.1; 325.9], 1846. First Edition, first issue of the first version of the opera. Hopkinson 1B (without the imprint "Typendruck von G.B. Teubner in Leipzig" to cast list). Klein p. 23. Fuld p. 428. Deathridge et al. p. 282, XXI. First performed in Dresden at the Hoftheater on October 19, 1845, to a libretto by the composer. "Tannhäuser, with its frequently abrupt contrasts and rudimentary motivic integration, falls well short of the mature Wagnerian music drama. Yet it marks a considerable advance over Der fliegende Holländer in the deployment of the orchestra, continues Wagner's preoccupation with the dramatic conception or 'poetic intent', and shows some awareness of what he later referred to as 'the beautiful, convincing necessity of transition'." Barry Millington in Grove Music Online. The handstamp "v. Milde" may belong to either Hans Feodor von Milde (1821-1899), a distinguished Austrian baritone who excelled in the operas of Wagner, or his wife, Milde-Agthe (1825-1906), a successful German soprano. Both were engaged at the Weimar Hofoper for a number of years, where they sang in the first performance of Lohengrin, conducted by Franz Liszt.. Folio. Quarter dark brown morocco with pebbled paper boards, raised bands on spine in gilt-ruled compartments, titling gilt, marbled edges.1f. (recto title, verso blank), 1f.

Foolscap 8vo: [8],270,2]pp, with four woodcut vignettes by Samuel Palmer (showing Villa d'Este, Colosseum, Street of the Tombs at Pompeii, and a vineyard scene). Original diaper-grain blue cloth, covers decorated in blind with elaborate arabesque border and round center ornament, spine decorated in blind and lettered in gilt, pale yellow coated end papers. A superb copy: internally virtually pristine, with crisp, clean pages; binding tight, gilt fresh and bright; lower cover with almost undetectable scattered areas of fading. Eckel, pp. 126-127.

Dickens, his wife, Kate, and her sister Georgina, with the Dickens's five children and several servants, left London by coach on July 2, 1844, bound for Italy. After one month's stay in the Villa Pallavicino della Peschiere, in Genoa (where Dickens wrote The Chimes), he and Kate left the children with Georgina and traveled south, stopping first in Pisa and Florence. In Rome, Dickens was captivated by the ruins, practically overcome, he later said, by the sight of the Coliseum. They also visited Herculaneum and Pompeii, making a perilous ascent to the rim of Vesuvius and peering into the "Hell of boiling fire below." Dickens published reports of his journey in the Daily News, as a series of eight "Travelling Letters. Written on the Road." Pictures from Italy (incorporating the letters, with five chapters added) appeared in book form on May 18, 1846. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        Autograph letter signed ("TBMacaulay").

      (London), Albany, 27. VIII. 1846. - 8vo. 4 pp. on bifolium. To an unidentified German recipient who had asked Macaulay to intercede on behalf of a literary friend: "My knowledge of German literature is very small. I now and then spend an hour with Schiller and Goethe. But I am ashamed to say that I do not know their successors even by name. I am quite willing to believe that you have formed a correct judgement both of your friend's poetry and of the treatment which he has experienced. But I do not think that he would at present have much chance of obtaining employment in the public service. As to myself, I have no patronage, except indeed a few small places in Chelsea Hospital. None of these places is vacant; nor would any of them suit a foreigner and an accomplished man of letters. The clerkships in the pay office are not in my gift, but in the gift of the Board of Treasury. For many reasons it seems to me that your friend would do well to aim rather at private than at public employment [.]".

        Bednye liudi. [In:] Peterburgskii sbornik, izdannyi N. Nekrasovym

      Sanktpeterburg. V tipografii Eduarda Pratsa. 1846 - First edition, containing (on pp. [1]–166) Dostoevsky’s first novel, Poor Folk. ‘No debut in Russian literature has been described more vividly than that of Dostoevsky, and few, in truth, created so widespread and sensational a stir. Dostoevsky’s account is well known, though he considerably exaggerates and sentimentalizes his own innocence and naiveté. “Early in the winter [of 1845], suddenly, I began to write Poor Folk, my first novel; before that I had never written anything. Having finished the novel, I did not know what to do with it, and to whom it should be submitted.” The truth is a good deal different. Dostoevsky knew very well what he wished to do with his novel ‘There can be no doubt, however, about what occurred when the novel was ready. Grigorovich [the writer Dmitry Grigorovich, 1822–1900] was profoundly impressed and moved by the work; he took it to Nekrasov; and both young literati shed tears over the sad plight of Dostoevsky’s characters. Acting on the impulse of the moment, they rushed to Dostoevsky’s apartment at four o’clock in the morning to convey their emotion. The next day Nekrasov brought it to Belinsky, who greeted it with equal warmth and appreciation. P. V. Annenkov visited Belinsky while the critic was plunged in Dostoevsky’s manuscript; and he has left a less well known but graphic account of Belinsky’s enthusiasm at his discovery. ‘“On one of my visits to Belinsky, before dinnertime, when he used to rest from his morning writing, I saw him from the courtyard of his house standing at his parlor window and holding a large copy-book in his hands, his face showing all the signs of excitement. He noticed me, too, and shouted: ‘Come up quickly, I have something new to tell you about.’ ‘You see this manuscript?’ he continued, after we shook hands. ‘I haven’t been able to tear myself away from it for almost two days now. It’s a novel by a beginner, a new talent; what this gentleman looks like and what his mental capacity is I do not know yet, but his novel reveals such secrets of life and characters in Russia as no one before him even dreamed of. Just think of it—it’s the first attempt at a social novel we’ve had, and done, moreover, in the way artists do their work; I mean, without themselves suspecting what will come out of it. The matter in it is simple but what drama, what types! I forgot to tell you, the artist’s name is Dostoevsky ”’ (Frank, Dostoesvky: the Seeds of Revolt, pp. 137–8). The volume also contains works by Belinsky, Herzen, Maikov, Nekrasov, Odoevsky, Panaev, Sollogub, and Turgenev (Pomeshchik, Tri portreta, and translations of Byron and Goethe), plus Kroneberg’s translation of Macbeth (Levidova, Shekspir 116). Large 8vo (247 × 155 mm), pp. [4], 560; some light foxing/spotting in places, title-page apparently supplied; contemporary half roan, corners worn, spine rubbed with a couple of small abrasions, but sound; early ink ownership inscription to the front free endpaper, later bookplate of A. V. Leont’ev to front pastedown. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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

      Adelaide, 'printed and published for Government, by George Dehane', 1846. Octavo, [ii], 15 pages. Original blue wrappers (with the title page details repeated on the front cover) slightly cracked at the foot of the spine; a very fine copy of an ephemeral item printed in the colony when it had been established scarcely a decade. 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.
