Contemporary ink inscription to first free endpaper. First edition in original cloth binding complete with binder’s sticker. With all the internal flaws noted by Smith except “lucky” on page 79 which is noted to only appear flawed in “some copies.” “Oliver Twist” ad does not match the first or second state in Smith. Illustrations were designed by John Leech, Richard Doyle, Clarkson Stanfield, Daniel Maclise and Edwin Landseer. Engravers include Thompson, the Dalziel brothers, T. Williams, Swain, and Groves. The Cricket... sprang from the idea to begin a weekly periodical which would’ve been called “The Cricket,” though was abandoned quickly for a more important venture and the founding of The Daily News. The Cricket was wildly successful, doubling in circulation of both its predecessors. Smith II, 6. Eckel 125-126.

        Dickens?s signature, along with that of his father and of John Forster Esquire, on a small envelope.

      [1846?] 1846 - A single 8vo leaf, folded & with (broken) seal to form a small envelope, approx. 11 x 7cm, written on one side only in black ink. It is not clear what this signed leaf refers to. The uppermost line reads ?Favored by John Forster Esquire?; beneath this is the signature of Dickens?s father ?John Dickens Esquire?, and the third and last line bears the signature of Charles Dickens himself. The note appears to be an endorsement for something or someone, and shows the three signatories to be in agreement. It may refer to the dramatisation of Dickens?s Christmas Book The Battle of Life, written while Dickens was in Lausanne in the summer of 1846. A similar memo written to the actor Robert Keeley at this time, and cited in the collection of Edwin W. Coggeshall, is described as having a note on the back reading ?favored by John Forster, Charles Dickens, & &? The letter, now in the Huntington Library, is recorded in Pilgrim Letters vol. IV, but without mention of the note. It dates to the earlier part of Dickens?s career, the signature is in black ink. John Dickens, who died in 1851 is still alive.

        Doorway of Baalbec

      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.

        TOPOGRAPHICAL MAP OF THE ROAD FROM MISSOURI TO OREGON COMMENCING AT THE MOUTH OF THE KANSAS IN THE MISSOURI RIVER, ENDING AT THE MOUTH OF THE WALLAH WALLAH IN THE COLUMBIA. IN VII SECTIONS

      Baltimore: E. Weber & Co, 1846. FIRST EDITION. This is a rare complete copy of the fragile first edition of a landmark in the cartography of the American West, the first accurate map of the Oregon Trail. It is based on the map Preuss drew to accompany Frémont's report on their expedition to Oregon Territory in 1843-44, described by Wheat as "a cartographic milestone. By accurately representing the basic features of the new country, Preuss changed the course of western mapmaking. No longer would cartography be based on myth and speculation." This detailed version of that map is enhanced by considerable accompanying engraved text, comprising quotations from Frémont's journal about the area depicted, along with practical advice about the availability of water, game, grass for horses and oxen, fuel for fires, and cautions about any threats posed by Indians. As Schubert observes in "Vanguard of Expansion," "this annotated atlas was one of the greatest contributions Frémont and Preuss made to the development of the West." The German-born Preuss (1803-54) had been a surveyor for the Prussian government before immigrating to the United States. The rather glum, pragmatic Preuss was an ideal counterpoint to the flamboyant, poetic Frémont: as our map demonstrates, Frémont could evoke the wonder of Western landscapes, while Preuss pointed out good camping sites and water sources. Together, they provided both inspiration and logistics for the prospective pioneer.. 410 x 675 mm. (16 x 26 3/4"). [7] (vast) leaves (blank on verso), comprising maps.Compiled by Charles Preuss from his sketches made on the ground and from the field notes and journal of Capt. J. C. Frémont. FIRST EDITION. Sheets bound with blue paper tape along right-hand edge and stored in an archival folder. Seven oblong folio lithographed maps. Graff 3360 ("An extraordinary map by a master cartographer"); Streeter Sale 3100; Wagner-Camp 115 (note); Wheat, Transmississippi West 523. First and last leaf a little soiled and foxed, last leaf with two-inch chip to one edge (well away from image) and a small hole along an old fold (minimal loss), interior leaves with scattered mild foxing, otherwise a fine copy, generally clean, fresh, and pleasing. This is a rare complete copy of the fragile first edition of a landmark in the cartography of the American West, the first accurate map of the Oregon Trail. It is based on the map Preuss drew to accompany Frémont's report on their expedition to Oregon Territory in 1843-44, described by Wheat as "a cartographic milestone.

        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.

        Statues of Memnon at Thebes, During the Inundation

      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.

First Edition of the third of Dickens's five Christmas books, dated 1846 but actually issued on December 20, 1845.

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.

        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.

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.
