        JOURNAL OF RANKIN DILWORTH [manuscript caption title]

      [Southern Texas & Northern Mexico]. April 28 - Sept. 19, 1846.. [Southern Texas & Northern Mexico]. April 28 - Sept. 19, 1846.. [94]pp. Approximately 16,500 words. Contemporary marbled boards, recently rebacked in modern calf. Corners worn. Internally clean. Very good. In a clear, legible hand. Mexican-American War diary kept by a young officer, a member of the 1st Infantry of Zachary Taylor's army, who was mortally wounded at the Battle of Monterrey. Born in Ohio in 1822, Dilworth graduated thirteenth out of twenty- five in his class at West Point in 1844. The diary begins on April 28, 1846, with preparations for leaving Jefferson Barracks in St. Louis, headed to Texas, and describes his transit down the Mississippi River to New Orleans, his travel by Gulf steamer to Brazos Santiago, and then the long, hot, dusty trek overland to Monterrey. During the intense assault on the eastern side of the city on Sept. 21st, Dilworth was mortally wounded by a Mexican cannonball. He lingered until the 27th, presumably long enough to be aware of the American victory. Primarily a military chronicle, Dilworth's diary contains his observations of the Mexican towns of Matamoros, Reynosa, Camargo, and Cerralvo. His observations include descriptions of the pretty women he saw (some of whom bathed nude), and his impressions of the places the army stayed or marched through. He records frivolity and executions in the same style. On Sept. 7th and 8th he attended two fandangos, where is appears he must have overindulged, as on the 9th he "was very sick, and had to ride in the bagg[age] wagon." In June his entries record observations on the surface of the land, describing trees and plants and houses. There are several mentions of Ben McCullough and the Texas Rangers. On Sept. 10th he mentions being promoted to Fist Lieutenant. Dilworth's narrative ends the day Taylor's army reaches Monterrey. Two days later he was caught in a murderous crossfire of cannons on the first day of the battle while attacking on the eastern side of the city. Struck by a twelve-pounder ball that tore off one leg, he lingered for six days. A very readable diary, comprised of 102 entries written by a literate and observant officer. The diary was published in 1996 as THE MARCH TO MONTERREY: THE DIARY OF LT. RANKIN DILWORTH, edited by Lawrence R. Clayton and Joseph E. Chance. Preceding the diary is Dilworth's eight-page composition "On the Rise and Fall of Nations," and a two-page composition praising the beauty and trials of life - neither of which are included in the published book. On a blank initial leaf is the ownership signature of Abby R. [Dilworth] Jones, Rankin Dilworth's sister, presumably the owner after Dilworth's death in Mexico.

        Eight Novels

      London - Printed for the Shakespeare Society, 1846. London - Printed for the Shakespeare Society, 1846 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Riche his Farewell to Militarie Profession by Barnaby Rich that influenced Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Bound in wraps. Barnabe Rich (c1540 1617) was an English author and soldier. His best-known work is Riche his Farewell to Militarie Profession conteining verie pleasaunt discourses fit for a peaceable tyme (1581). Of the eight stories contained in it, five, he says, are forged only for delight, neither credible to be believed, nor hurtful to be perused. The three others are translations from the Italian. Shakespeare took the plot of Twelfth Night from the story of Apolonius and Silla, the second in the collection, which was in turn founded on the tale of Nicuola and Lattantio as told by Matteo Bandello. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is significanr wear to the extremities, including bumping with loss. There is an ink inscription along the spine. Internally the pages are clean and bright with mild spotting and handling marks on the first and last couple of pages, with the occasional light spots throughout.

        Vivian Grey

      Henry Colburn. Henry Colburn. First edition.. Spines significantly restored, with some loss; edges somewhat worn; drab boards a little stained; lacking one rear free endpaper; some foxing; a very good set, enclosed in a cloth clamshell box.. Sadleir 734; Wolff 1846 (rebound without the half-titles). 5 vols, 8vo, original gray boards and printed paper labels. Half-titles present in vols 2 & 5, as issued; terminal ads in vols 1-4. Disraeli?s first novel, published when he was twenty-one, a bestselling roman à clef about London fashionable and political life which takes aim at several of his contemporaries, including the publisher John Murray, with whom Disraeli had had a falling out. Vivian Grey is often written about as a cornerstone work of the ?fashionable? or ?silver fork? school of fiction, but it is also the first work in the genre of the political novel as later practiced by Trollope, Meredith, Eliot, Wells and Mrs. Humphrey Ward. Complete sets with the five volumes in first edition are uncommon.

The first work (Memorials) with tinted lithographic title page, letterpess dedication, 19 lithographic plates each with an accompanying leaf of letterpress; 1 engraved plate of seals. The second work (History of Winchester College pub. Ackermann) consists of a letterpress title page followed by 56 pages of letterpress text, but without the plates to this work. Our research suggests that the "Memorials" was issued in 8 parts during 1846 each presumably with a total of 24 litho plates, so 4 plates were not bound in.

A fine contemporary binding of sage green morocco with elaborate gilt work to the boards, gilt dentelles and wide gilt vine-leaf decorated turn-ins; rebacked to style with five raised bands.

        The Adventures of OLIVER TWIST;

      , 1846. 1846. or, The Parish Boy's Progress. With Twenty-four Illustrations on Steel, by George Cruikshank. A New Edition, Revised and Corrected. London: Published for the Author by Bradbury & Evans, 1846. Original blind-stamped violet-grey cloth with spine pictorially decorated in gilt. First English One-Volume Edition, and the first with the text substantially revised by Dickens (having bought the copyright back from the original publisher Bentley, Dickens re-wrote many passages to make them more dramatic). The first edition was published in 1838, a "second edition" in 1838-1839, and a "third edition" in 1841 -- all in three volumes. The novel was then "revised and corrected" by Dickens for the 1846 issuance in ten serial parts and for this corresponding one-volume octavo edition.~This copy has stab-holes visible throughout (text and plates): this means that these particular leaves were initially issued in the serial parts (at the end of which, serial readers were encouraged to bring in their parts to have them bound into this cloth, just as new readers were encouraged to buy a copy in the same binding but made up from leaves not used in the parts). The original cloth binding is a handsome one, with gilt wreath on the front cover and with three gilt pictorial vignettes on the spine; still present are the original pale yellow endpapers. Though almost-imperceptible, this copy bears discreet evidence of having been re-cased.~Condition overall is near-fine (rear endpaper cracked, very slight mottling of the cloth color; the 24 Cruikshank plates are remarkably free of foxing). This first one-volume edition is rather uncommon (the 1846 serial parts more-so); "Eckel, mentioning the rarity of this item, questions whether a single copy could be found" [Carr]. Gimbel A39; Carr B98.

      ated from Copac) - London - E. Appleyard, 1846. ated from Copac) - London - E. Appleyard, 1846 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarceearly penny dreadful focused on the Aztecs by American author Joseph Holt Ingraham (1809-1860). First and sole edition. Part of 'Roscoe's Series'. Additional illustrated title page and illustrations in the text. Publisher's catalogue to the rear. Penny Dreadful was a term applied to nineteenth century British fiction publications, usually lurid serial stories appearing in parts over a number of weeks, each part costing a penny. The term, however, soon came to encompass a variety of publications that featured cheap sensational fiction, such as story papers and booklet libraries. The Penny Dreadfuls were printed on cheap pulp paper and were aimed primarily at working class adolescents. Owing to their cheap production, their perceived lack of value, and such hazards as war-time paper drives, the Penny Dreadfuls, particularly the earliest ones, are rare today. Condition: In a cloth binding. Externally sound although a trifle rubbed and bumped. Internally, generally firmly bound. Bright and clean aside from the odd spot, and some dust marks. Copperplate ink signature to front pastedown. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Le Comte de Monte-Cristo

      Paris: Bureaux du Journal Le Siecle, 1846.. Paris: Bureaux du Journal Le Siecle, 1846. One of the earliest known editions of The Count of Monte Cristo. Original brown pebbled cloth, gilt-stamped on front cover and spine. Timbre Royal stamp on page 167. Spine rebacked with the original spine laid down. Extremities heavily rubbed, a very good copy,illustrated with the frontispiece portrait and 29 plates on thicker paper by Gavarni, Johannot and others, each with a tissue guard. This copy includes plates, rarely found in this scarce edition. There are no copies of this edition recorded in OCLC or the Bibliotheque nationale de France, and in the last twenty-five years no copies have appeared at auction. The Count of Monte Cristo, in particular, is "perhaps the outstanding work of fiction to reveal the futility of human vengeance, even when it attains it sutmost completeness. Maurice Baring calls it the most popular book in the world" (Frank Wild Reed). "One of the best thrillers ever written" (Reid, 134).

        LIFE OF THE AMIR DOST MOHAMMED KHAN OF KABUL. With his Political Proceedings towards the English, Russian, and Persian Governments, including the Victory and Disasters of the British Army in Afghanistan.

      Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans. London. 1846 - FIRST EDITION. 2 VOLUMES. 8vo. (9.1 x 6 inches). 19 lithographic portraits, printed on India paper and mounted. Publisher's forest green fine combed cloth, title gilt to spines, blind panelling and central lozenge to the boards, mid-cream surface-paper endpapers. Very slightly rubbed, some off-setting from the plates, but overall a superb set in the original cloth. A remarkably well-preserved set of this highly desirable work. ----- Perhaps the key source for political and diplomatic background to the First Afghan War. Mohan Lal was "Bokhara"; Burnes's most important intelligence operative, travelling extensively in Persia and Afghanistan and running a string of agents for the British. In 1841, as the situation in Kabul became critical, Lal tried to warn Burnes of the fact that he was the focus of rising discontent, but the Englishman foolishly believed that he would be able to talk his way out of the situation. Lal escaped the ensuing bloodbath, continuing to supply information from the Afghan capital. In 1844 he visited Scotland to return some papers to the Burnes family, the Montrose Review describing him then in glowing, if condescending, terms; "He is a very handsome man, of 28 years; and, when arrayed in the costly and gorgeous costume of his country, affords a favourable specimen of the Asiatic. But this is the least of his merits: his countenance beams with intelligence, and his intercourse with Europeans has enabled him to adapt himself, with perfect tact, to all their habits and modes of thinking, so that he can sustain with ease and propriety his part in any general conversation. We understand he has been urgently recalled to London ". He remained in London for some time, the present work being written there and dedicated with permission to Queen Victoria, but he never received the recognition from the British government that he felt he deserved. As a result of his service in Muslim countries, he had been excommunicated by the Kashmiri Pandit community, eventually converting to Islam, he died an isolated and embittered man in Delhi in 1877.

        The Life of Jesus, Critically Examined by Dr. David Friedrich Strauss. Translated from the Fourth German Edition [by Mary Ann Evans]

      London: Chapman, Brothers, 1846.. London: Chapman, Brothers, 1846.. First edition in English, with a preface for this edition by Strauss.. Edges very slightly rubbed; fine copy.. Parrish, Victorian Lady Novelists, pages 4-5. 3 vols, 8vo, later brown half morocco, marbled sides, gilt lettering, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Half-titles present. ¦ The first book by Evans, who would later become famous for her writings under the pseudonym George Eliot. StraussÕ groundbreaking, radical biography of Jesus, Das Leban Jesu, was widely supported in young intellectual circles in England, though several years after its first appearance in German in 1835 there remained no edition in English. Encouraged by numerous friends, Evans - then a 25-year-old aspiring writer who was not fluent in German - agreed to take on the task of translation, which took her two years, and she was paid a mere £20.00 for her efforts. Though the financial compensation was meager, Evans was rewarded by StraussÕ high praise for the translation in his preface.

        A History of Greece [12 Volumes, With Manuscript Letter]

      John Murray. John Murray. Hardcover. [Set09] London, 1846-1856. A complete first edition set of Grote's important work, complete in twelve volumes. Full polished calf bindings by Bickers and Son. Includes a manuscript letter from Grote regretfully declining an invitation to a luncheon. "Although as biased as Macaulay's History of England, and less scholarly than Mommsen's Roman History, Grote's History of Greece can be bracketed with these two works. Like them, it was received with universal acclimation... (It) shaped the European conception of the subject matter throughout the nineteenth century , and still merits respect as a monument of industrious Victorian scholarship." - Printing and the Mind of Man. A very good set with generally excellent contents, though there is some intermittent foxing especially at prelims and title pages. Nineteenth century bookplates on front pastedowns. Partial chip to label of spine on Vol. I, some chips to heads of spine of Vols. X and XII, some normal shelfwear, three white spots to top edge of pages of Vol. XI. Folding maps present at rear of Vols. I and II, with a marginal tear of about 2-3 inches to first map where it is attached, otherwise maps in excellent condition. Very good condition overall, quite sound and attractive. . Very Good.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      O. O. u. D., [ca. April 1846].. 3 SS. 4to.. Liebevoller Brief an seine Eltern: "[...] Der heilige Ungarwein hat seit je zu den Genüssen gehört, die mir mit am theuersten waren ja am meisten Wirkung auf mich äußerten. In dem Feuer, der Kraft u. der edeln Farbigkeit dieses Weins liegt etwas von einer Natur Verwandtes. Wie kein anderer vermag er mich zu Begeistern! [...] Oft werde ich von diesem Wein trinken, u. jedes mal wenn er die Pulsschläge mir vermehrend, größere Kraft u. kühneren Athem mir in die Seele haucht, werd' ich der Liebe denken, die ihn sandte. Hart geh' ich durch's Leben; alle weicheren Regungen des Herzens unterdrückend, führt mich mein Pfad von Felsgeröll zu Klippe u. Gestein u. mit der Axt muß ich den Weg mir bahnen. Im ewgen Kampf der um mich tobt u. stets bereite Kraft verlangt, müßen des Herzens sanfte Regungen, muß jede süßre Wehmuth schweigen! Dafür verlangt mich mehr nur als die Andern von Zeit zu Zeit, u. langem Zwischenraum, u. sei's des Jahr's Einmal, im Ocean der Liebe mich zu baden, unterzutauchen in den heilgen, reinen Wogen u. neue Kraft u. neue Unverwundbarkeit aus ihnen mir zu schöpfen. Denn wie aus dem Quell die Glieder badend Frische saugen, u. wie das nachgiebige Element der Fluth den Körper stärkt zu neuem Ringen, so saugt sich aus der reichen, wahren Liebe Schooß der Geist die Kraft, um einer Welt des Haßes zu begegnen! [...] Drum, - welches harte Schicksal mir begegne, - ich dank' Euch! u. frisch ermannt, find' ich zum Ungeheuern selbst die Kraft! Wie sich die Venus an den rauhen Kriegs Gott, so schmiegt ihr Euch an mein wildes Wesen, nachgebend jedem trotz'gen Ungestüm! [...]". - Nicht in: Gustav Meyer (Hrsg.): Ferdinand Lassalle Nachgelassene Briefe und Schriften. Stuttgart u. Berlin, 1921. - Vielfach gefaltet und in den Fälzen meist durchbrochen.
