        Moral Heroism: or, the trials and triumphs of the great and good.

      London:: Houlston and Stoneman, 1846., 1846. Small 8vo. iv, 368 pp. Early ownership inscription "Given to J. Crealock for perseverance and attention to his various studies, Xmas - 1846 - December 7th." With an armorial bookplate of Crealock of Langerton. Fine. 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.

Dans cette autobiographie, il fait revive la période 1829 à 1846, années d’épreuve pendant lesquelles il continue à compléter son instruction et perfectionner ses connaissances. C'est aussi la période où il va déployer ses efforts dans la mission qu'il s'est donnée pour pacifier le Compagnonnage et pour laquelle il va refaire un tour de France.

        [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.

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.

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.

        Model of Jerusalem.

      Edwin Smith Sheffield 1846 - Plaster-cast relief model (505 x 422 x 70 mm), some small metal details, within fitted wooden box (544 x 465 x 88 mm), some chipping and small loss to plaster and metal details, rather dust-soiled. A very rare survival of a 3D model of the Old City of Jerusalem. The survival rate of these models, in vogue in the mid-nineteenth century, is very low owing to the fact that they are plaster-cast. This type of depiction was used generally for educational purposes to bring the subject alive and provide an accurate depiction of the subject in the time before the widespread use of photography.

      Lithograph with original outline hand colour, of 4 sheets mounted on and joined by original linen with light green paper edging (Very Good, areas of very mild toning, otherwise bright and clean), 57 x 74 cm (22.5 x 29 inches). - Glogau, Prussia (today G?ogów, Poland), [1846]. Scarce first edition of Friedrich Handtke’s highly influential map of the United States, with a fine view of the American West taken just before the transformative result of the Mexican-American War. - This attractive large-format map of the United States captures the republic during an especially interesting time in its its territorial evolution and expansion, immediately after it was awarded the Oregon Territory, its gateway to the Pacific, and shortly before its windfall gains of the entire American Southwest following the Mexican-American War. Made towards the end of 1846, the map shows that America then had 29 states and 4 territories, each of which is outlined in its own bright and attractive original hand colours. The map is quite detailed, with all major topographical features depicted (as best as they were then known), while the legend in the lower right explains the symbols used to identify cities and towns of varying sizes, forts, missions, canals and the extent of America’s fledgling railway system (in the North-eastern corridor). With the exception of the Lower Michigan peninsula, which is somewhat vaguely formed, the territory east of the Mississippi is mapped with considerable correctness, noting modern boundaries, including the resolution of the recently concluded Maine-Canada boundary dispute (resolved in 1842), although Virginia is shown in its large form prior to the succession of West Virginia (which would occur in 1863). Only three states have territory west of the Mississippi River: Louisiana (gained statehood 1812), Arkansas (1836) and Missouri (1821). In the Western Great Lakes is Wisconsin Territory, which existed in that from 1836 to 1848. Further to the west is the Iowa Territory, which maintained this form until the State of Iowa was carved out of its southern portion on December 28, 1846. Even further west, taking up a vast part of the Great Plains, is the Missouri Territory, the rump leftover of the much larger Louisiana Purchase lands. Importantly, beyond the Rockies, in the Pacific Northwest, is the Oregon Territory which was only recently granted to the United States by the Treaty of Washington (1846). That same agreement gave what is today British Columbia to Britain, extending the U.S.-British boundary along the 49th parallel from the Rockies to the Pacific, but with all of Vancouver Island going to the British. Various old fur-trading forts are marked in the Oregon Territory, such as Ft. Astoria and Ft. Vancouver, while the Willamette Valley (in today’s State of Oregon) already shows some signs of settlement, being the first Pacific region to attract significant American migration. Texas is shown to be a U.S. state (having been admitted to the Union in 1845); however, its western boundaries with Mexico are left undefined. The entire future U.S. Southwest is shown to still belong to Mexico. Crucially, this map was made during the early part of the Mexican-American War (1845-8), after which this massive region would be ceded to the United States. Geographically, while the Upper Rio Grande Valley in New Mexico is reasonably well-defined, the territory between that region and the coast of ‘New California’ (or Alta California, the future U.S. State of California) is shown to be little known, with most areas being the product of conjecture. The coasts of California are well defined, based on good hydrographic surveys, and the region’s several presidios and former Franciscan missions are labelled, including the capital of Alta California, ‘San Carlos de Monterey’, as well as San Diego, San Gabriel, Santa Barbara, San Jose and San Francisco, etc. Interestingly, a table in the lower left corner of the map, which identifies each state and territory by matching a number on the map to its name, gives the land area and population statistics (from the 1840 census) for each jurisdiction. It reveals that in 1840 the United States had a total population of 17,6

      John Owen, Cambridge 1846 - First edition. Bound by Stikeman and Co. in three quarter green morocco with marbled endpapers, raised bands, and top edge gilt.
