        Memoirs of the Lady Hester Stanhope,

      London - Henry Colburn 1846 - A beautiful set of the memoirs of the remarkable Lady Hester Lucy Stanhope. Complete in three volumes. Second edition. With hand-coloured frontispiece to volume I and monochrome frontispieces to volumes II and III. Volume I features a fold-out plan showing Lady Hester Stanhope's residence at Joon. Publisher's catalogue to rear of volume III. Lady Hester Lucy Stanhope (12 March 1776 23 June 1839) was a British socialite, adventurer and traveller. Her archaeological expedition to Ashkelon in 1815 is considered the first modern excavation in the history of Holy Land archaeology. Her use of a medieval Italian document is described as one of the earliest uses of textual sources by field archaeologists. Charles Lewis Meryon (1783-1877) studied medicine at St. Thomas's Hospital under Henry Cline, by whose recommendation he was in 1810 engaged to accompany the eccentric Lady Hester Stanhope in the capacity of medical attendant, on a voyage to Sicily and the East. He followed her during her seven years' wanderings, saw her finally settled on Mount Lebanon and returned home, later revisiting Syria at Lady Hester's request in 1819. He found that she had completely adopted the usages of the East. Finally settling in London, Meryon issued there in 1845 his Memoirs of the Lady Hester Stanhope. Despite their diffuseness, the memoirs are excellent reading and contain many curious particulars about persons of note. [DNB]Condition: In a half morocco binding with marbled paper to boards. Externally, lovely condition. Internally, firmly bound. Foxing to frontispieces of volumes II and III but otherwise bright and generally clean with the odd scattered spot.

        A Map of the United States of Mexico, as organized and defined by the several acts of Congress of the Republic . Second edition, 1846

      H.S. Tanner, Philadelphia 1846 - An important and rare map of Mexico and the southwestern United States, depicting Texas in its largest form, the 1846 "Second edition" of the celebrated Tanner map. The present map embraces all of modern Mexico and the southwestern United States of America, and prominently features the new state of Texas with its original extensive boundaries. H.S. Tanner, of Philadelphia, was one of the most esteemed American mapmakers of the first half of the nineteenth-century. His 1822 Map of North America was one of the most influential of the period. In 1825, he excerpted and enlarged the portion of the map pertaining to what was a newly-independent Mexico, which then included the entire American southwest. Tanner's map effectively became the definitive source map for the region. It was brazenly copied in the White Gallaher & White map of 1828, which in turn directly inspired the famous Disturnell map of 1846, the "Treaty map" initially used to consider the redemarcation of the international border following the Mexican-American war. Walter Ristow noted that Tanner produced the first edition of the United States of Mexico map in 1825, and furthermore cited that he "issued 10 variants of one or another of five states" of the map up to 1847. The present map is officially termed as the "1846, second edition", although it is actually the seventh variant of the map to be issued, according to Ristow's classification. It closely follows the "1832, second edition," even including the "April 2nd, 1832" copyright imprint in the lower right corner. At this time, interest in all matters relating to Mexico and Texas amongst the American public was at an all-time high, and it is thought that Tanner hastily prepared this edition in order to capitalize on the commercial opportunities. Tanner did not take the time to avail himself of the most recent geographical advances, and consequently this map is a fascinating cartographic hold-out during a time of unprecedented change. Texas is portrayed as an enormous Mexican state, although it had since 1832 seceded, and later joined the Union as an American state. Its massive territory extends far to the north and west of its modern limits, following the eastern band of the Rio Grande up to its headwaters, up into the 'stovepipe' to a point touching the 42nd parallel. The geographical detailing of most of Texas is quite accurate, as Tanner was well apprised of Stephen F. Austin's surveys, a point underscored by his inclusion of 'Austin's Colony' in east-central Texas. In an improvement to it antecedent, the western portion of the state owes its form to William Emory's map of 1844. The depiction of what is now modern Mexico is quite advanced, in light of Alexander von Humboldt's exhaustive charting of the country. At this time, Tanner elected not to include information from Charles Frémont's ground-breaking map of 1845, based on his own discoveries. The coastline of Alta California still maintains a mythical quality, void of most actual details such as San Francisco Bay, but is replete with imaginary details such as the Buenaventura, Los Mongos, Timpangos and San Felipe Rivers. The interior regions extending all the way into what is now Colorado are shown to be almost completely unknown. A curious prophetic detail is the demarcation of a boundary line between Alta and Baja California, although located to the south of the international border that was to be set in 1848. The map includes a detailed inset depicting the key travel route from the port of Veracruz to Mexico City, the same path taken by U.S. forces during their successful attack on the Mexican capital in 1847. In the spirit of the times, the map also includes two statistical tables, one of distances and the other of population and geographical details of individual states. Tanner, wishing to update this map, produced a "third edition" later that same year that included Frémont's discoveries.

        A MAP OF THE UNITED STATES OF MEXICO, AS ORGANIZED AND DEFINED BY THE SEVERAL ACTS OF CONGRESS OF THAT REPUBLIC.

      Philadelphia: H.S. Tanner, 1846. - Engraved map on banknote paper, with original hand- coloring. Sheet size: 23 x 28 1/2 inches. Very good.

        The Chess Player's Chronicle

      London: H Hurst, 1846 iv+420 pages with diagrams and index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in period cloth with blind stamped covers with gilt insignia, and gilt decoration and lettering to spine. Volume VII (7). (Betts: 7-1) First edition.The Chess Player's Chronicle, founded by Howard Staunton and extant from 1841?"56 and 1859?"62, was the world's first successful English-language magazine devoted exclusively to chess. Various unrelated but identically or similarly named publications were published until 1902. The earliest chess magazine in any language was the French Le Palamède, published in 1836-39 and 1842-47. In 1837 George Walker introduced an English-language magazine, the Philidorian, that was devoted to "chess and other scientific games". Only six issues of it were published, and it "expired in May, 1838". In 1840 or 1841 Staunton bought the fortnightly magazine The British Miscellany and Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1841 it became The Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1843, the Chess Player's Chronicle became a shilling monthly magazine. Staunton "made the inclusion of a large number of games by himself and other leading players of the day a special feature" of the magazine. He also used the magazine as a forum for attacking others. Staunton was the owner and editor of the magazine until the early 1850s, when he sold it to R.B. Brien. O'Brien became editor of the magazine, but was unable to continue its success and discontinued it in 1856 because of financial losses and his own illness. It reappeared in 1859 under the editorship of Ignatz Kolisch, Zytogorski, and Josef Kling, but survived only until July 1862. Thereafter, a number of magazines appeared with the same or similar name (such as Chess Players' Chronicle) appeared. Arthur Skipworth, assisted by William Wayte and Charles Ranken, wrote The Chess Players' Quarterly Chronicle, which was published in York from February 1868 to December 1871. Skipworth, who had left Bilsdale for Tetford Rectory, Horncastle, and John Wisker became the editors of the new The Chess Players' Chronicle in February 1872. Johann Löwenthal began writing for it in 1873. The magazine ran until 1875. In January 1876, it was succeeded by The Chess Player's Chronicle, whose editor-in-chief was J. Jenkin of Helensburgh. Its editorial staff consisted of Jenkin, Skipworth, Ranken, Wayte, and Andrew Hunter of Glasgow. Billed as a "monthly record of provincial chess", it was published at Glasgow, costing sixpence. Its short run under Jenkin's editorship was marked by xenophobia. The February issue stated that the West End Club had "cleared away the disturbing foreign element which infected the Divan" and referring to Wilhelm Steinitz as "the hot-headed little Austrian". Its third and last issue was published in March. The magazine reappeared in January 1877. It was now under Ranken's editorship, assisted by J. Crum, G. B. Fraser, Skipworth, and Wayte. The first issue apologized for "certain offensive statements and insinuations, seriously affecting the honor of some eminent players", and explained that some members of the present editorial staff had only contributed games and other inoffensive material to it in 1875. Ranken continued to edit the magazine until September 1880. In 1881, the title was enlarged to The Chess Player's Chronicle, and Journal of Indoor and Outdoor Sports, and "the magazine's importance in the chess world was no longer the same". None of these magazines compared in quality with what Staunton had achieved, and the success of the British Chess Magazine, by the turn of the century a superb magazine, put an end to the title in 1902.Condition:Corners bumped, earlier owner's stamp to title, recased with new end papers and old spine laid on else a very good copy.

      Philadelphia 1846 - Second edition, after the first of 1843, of this rare pocket map of North America, showing the United States west to Texas, Indian Territory, and the Dakota Territory (i.e. 19 degrees longitude west of Washington, D.C.). The map is revised and updated from the 1843 version, most notably by the addition of the newly created Territory of Iowa. The inset map of Texas is new to this 1846 edition, and dates from the first year of statehood, still showing Texas with its Republic boundaries. The Oregon inset is also new, and shows the Oregon border going north into Canada, i.e. before the 1846 treaty boundaries. There are also two population tables, and the text lists the major railroad, steamboat, and stage routes all the way west to Iowa, Wisconsin, and Missouri. The four insets are: "Map of the North-Eastern boundary of the United States According to the Treaty of 1842," "Map of the Southern part of Florida," "Map of Oregon Territory" and "Map of the State of Texas." These four insets take the place of the thirty-two small inset maps of cities and town from the 1843 version of the map. Rumsey lists only the wall map version of this 1846 map.

        A MAP OF THE UNITED STATES OF MEXICO, AS ORGANIZED AND DEFINED BY THE SEVERAL ACTS OF THE CONGRESS OF THAT REPUBLIC [caption title].

      New York: Henry S. Tanner, 1846. - Folding handcolored pocket map, 31 x 24 3/4 inches, tipped into original 12mo. cloth folder. Cloth sunned. Minor foxing on pastedowns. Slight staining from adhesive at cover. A few small holes at corner folds, else nicely intact. Color quite bright and clean. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. Third edition, second issue, after the first of 1825. Each of these editions and issues was revised, and this is generally considered the most important. The map shows all of Mexico and the majority of the American Southwest, with insets providing a "Table of Distances," a "Statistical Table," and a map of roads from Vera Cruz to Alvarado. Taken from his 1822 "Map of North America," Tanner's present effort would play a controversial role in the war with Mexico and conflicting claims to territory near San Diego, here placed soundly within the United States. In the first issue, the southern boundary of California was placed further south than either the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo or the Gadsden Purchase would allow. "The plate [in the present second issue] has been changed to follow Fremont in California, including the Great Basin. The southern boundary of California now extends from Pt. Moinfrains northeast to the mouth of the Gila, while the United States boundary with Sonora is still much too far south. New Mexico is still confined to a narrow strip between the Rio Grande and the mountains that form the continental divide, all east of there being Texas, which ends at the Arkansas River. North of that stream the map has been altered to show the Parks and South Pass" - Wheat. This is the first edition of the Tanner map to show the correct course of the Timpanogos and Buena Ventura rivers. An important installment in the controversial cartography of the American Southwest. Quite scarce. OCLC locates only eight copies. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI II, pp.89-90, no. 364; III, p.38, no. 529. SCHWARTZ & EHRENBERG, pp.276-77. PHILLIPS MAPS, p.409 (another ed). STREETER SALE 3824.

Lederband der Zeit mit Deckel- und Rückenprägung. Quer-Folio. Postkartenalbum aus dem Besitz von Ludwig Fürst zu Wittgenstein und dessen Gattin Valerie.

Zahlreiche Karten stammen aus der Hand von Ludwigs und Valeries Sohn, dem späteren königl.-ungarischen Ernährungsminister Ludwig (Lajos) Aladar Fürst zu Windisch-Graetz (1882-1968), der 1925 maßgeblich an der berüchtigten ungarischen Geldwäscheraffäre beteiligt war, in deren Rahmen sich einige Honoritäten um Windisch-Graetz als einen der Köpfe der Irredenta-Bewegung sammelten und Frankreich durch gefälschte französische Francs "heimzahlen" wollten, daß durch die Verträge von Trianon Ungarn mehr als zwei Drittel seines Territoriums und über die Hälfte seiner Einwohner an Rumänien, die Tschechoslowakei, Jugoslawien und Österreich verloren hatte. - Die Karten stammen u. a. aus Backa Topola, Bad Gastein, Bad Reichenhall, Baden bei Wien, Bleder See (auch Veldeser See) mit Schloss Windisch-Graetz, Bozen, Breslau, Brioni, Brixen, Budapest, Cannes, Düsseldorf, Ebergassing, Friesach, Grein, Hallein, Kietrz (deutsch Katscher), Krakau, Landro (Tirol), Lemberg, Liezen, Lovrana, Marienbad, Menton, Monaco, Mošovce, München, Neisse, Nizza, Paris, Ratibor, Rom, Salzburg, San Remo, Schloß Hollenegg (Steiermark), Sylt, Trencsin, Truskawez, Lovran, Üdvözlet Makóról, Vahrn bei Brixen, Venedig und Wien. Zwei weitere Karten stammen von dem Frontabschnitt beim Steinfelder Lager in Pottendorf bei Wien, das im Vorfeld des Russisch-Japanischen Krieges, der ein halbes Jahr später, im Februar 1904/05, ausbrechen sollte, errichtet worden war. Von hier berichtet der dort sationierte, die Greuel des Krieges nicht vorausahnende Windisch-Graetz treuherzig an seiner Mutter: "Gestern in Baden gewesen[,] habe Gfin. Stolberg [.] gesehen, welche Dir sehr viel schönes sagen läßt. Tausend Dank für Deine gnädige Karte. Bin sehr wohl Mutter jetzt allerdings glühend heiß auch die Nächte sind drückend [.]".

        Dombey and Son. With Illustrations by H. K. Browne.

      London: Bradbury and Evans, 1846-48. - A fine set of Dombey and Son in original parts, completely unsophisticated, as evidenced by the ink signature on each front wrapper of a contemporary reader, Stephen Blair. Dickens novels in parts with the evidence of the contemporary ownership on each wrapper are rare, and such provenance is virtually the only way to establish that a set has not been sophisticated, "married" or "made up." 19 parts in 20, 8vo, original pictorial blue wrappers. 40 plates. Hatton & Cleaver, pages 227-250. This set agrees with Hatton and Cleaver's description, except that in part 11 there is no ad for Letts & Son, and the ad for Kaye's Pills in part 12 varies slightly from the one described by Hatton & Cleaver. Two of the three misprints noted by Hatton & Cleaver are present: part 11, page 324, "Capitan" for "Captain"; part 14, page 426, "if" is not present; on page 431, the page number is present (in Hatton & Cleaver's earliest issue the number is omitted). Plates foxed - as seems inevitable - some minor paper repairs to the corners of a few spines; a few wrappers slightly soiled and smudged; overall in very nice condition, as issued.

        Pomologie française. Recueil des plus beaux Fruits cultivés en France.

      - Paris, Langlois et Leclercq, 1846. 4 volumes. Folio (413 x 280mm). With three plain and 420 stipple-engraved plates printed in colours and finished by hand. Contemporary half purple calf, gilt spines with monogram. A fine copy of the most attractive fruit book ever produced. This work represents the apogee of French stipple-engraved colour printing, achieved by Redouté and his pupils. The plates first appeared accompanying Antoine Poiteau and Pierre Jean François Turpin's edition of Duhamel du Monceau's 'Traité des Arbres fruitiers', published in 72 parts, 1807-1835. After Turpin's death in 1840 Poiteau, who was the sole author of the text, took control of the plates and removed Turpin's name from them. He also arranged text and plates according to the group of fruit, whereas the 1807-1835 edition was without systematic arrangement.The first volume is devoted to almonds, peaches, apricots, and plums; the second to citrus fruit, grapes, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, etc; the third to gooseberries, currants and pears (over 100 varieties); and the fourth to apples, hazelnuts, walnuts, figs, and even an avocado. Poiteau and Turpin were both outstanding botanical artists in the 'Redouté' style, and utilised the techniques of colour-printing Redouté had devised. The 'Pomologie française' was published by Langlois, the great master of colour printing who supervised much of Redouté's best work. A team of over twenty engravers worked on the plates.Nissen BBI, 551; Great Flower Books p. 55; Stafleu & Cowan 1548; Raphael, An Oak Spring Pomona n. 31. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"This map represents a great step forward, in that it is among the first by a commercial cartographer to utilize the recent explorations that had bounded and determined the nature of the Great Basin.because of its popularity, this map of the West exerted great influence, not only with the public but on other commercial cartographers" - Wheat. The text describes each territory or state in turn, with notes on Lewis and Clark and other early explorers, and more historical material.

        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. - The first book by Evans, who would later become famous for her writings under the pseudonym George Eliot. Strauss' 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 Strauss' high praise for the translation in his preface. 3 vols, 8vo, later brown half morocco, marbled sides, gilt lettering, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Half-titles present. Parrish, Victorian Lady Novelists, pages 4-5. Edges very slightly rubbed; fine copy. First edition in English, with a preface for this edition by Strauss.

      Charles Baedeker Coblentz 1846 - First edition. xxiv, 309pp, 8 plans and one general map in two parts at the rear, bound in the original yellow pictorial biedermeier boards, slightly bumped and worn at corners; overall an excellent copy. This extremely rare early Baedeker was translated by Professor Klein from the fifth German edition published in the same year. This was the second French title to be published by Baedeker. The first was published in 1832 under the title " Voyage du Rhin de Mayence a Cologne." However this is considered to be the first true French Baedeker as much of the guide had been re-written. Baedeker had also introduced more town plans. Hinrichsen F2. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Contemporary half calf, spines with green gilt lettered label, marbled sides. A very rare, almost complete, early run of this most important paleontological periodical. Volume 2 lacks 6 plates and volume 30 does not contain the monographs published between 1898 and 1906, as the library stopped subscribing after 1894. This beautifully produced periodical containing numerous monographs on fossil shells was edited by the leading 19th century German paleontologists Herm. von Meyer, Wilh. Dunker and K.A. Zittel. All famous German paleontologists of the second half of the 19th century contributed, by publishing larger or smaller monographs in the Palaeontographica. "Ein Hauptverdienst Dunkers war es, mit H. v. Meyer zusammen in 1846 die Palaeontographica begründet zu haben, das die deskriptiven Grundlagen der Paläontologie schuf. Dunker gab mit Meyer 18 dieser Bände heraus, anschliessend noch 6 Bände mit K.A. von Zittel. Besonderer Wert erhalten die zahlreichen paläontologischen Veröffentlichungen durch seine selbstgefertigten, vorzüglichen lithographischen Tafeln" (NDB IV, 199).Added to the present set are some volumes of the 'Palaeontographica Supplementbände' (supplement volumes)Supplement volumes to Palaeontographica were published on individual topics.
