      London Bradbury and Evans 1846 - First single volume edition, now quite scarce. Bound from the original parts. With 24 illustrations on steel by George Cruikshank. 8vo, antique three-quarter tan calf over marbled boards, decorated with a green morocco lettering label git, the spine with raised bands gilt lined. xii, 311. A very nice copy, fresh and clean. IMPORTANT AND TIMELESS. OLIVER TWIST was Dickens's second novel, following quickly on the enormous success of THE PICKWICK PAPERS. It was published in volume form six months before it was completed in serial form, and Frederic Kitton states that 35 London booksellers contracted for only 528 copies. But although those London booksellers may have had their initial doubts, the book was, and still is, one of Dickens' most popular novels. This is a nice tall copy, well margined and is now considered scarce. "Eckel, mentioning the rarity of this item questions whether a single copy could be found" [Carr]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Church of the Holy Sepulchre, exterior view

      Sketches in Egypt and Nubia, from Drawings made on the Spot.. Francis Graham Moon., 1846–9. Tinted lithograph (two tints). Original hand colouring. Very good condition. Subscribers Edition. Size: 34 x 24.5cm. Mounted size: 51.5 x 67 cm. Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo and three full sketchbooks, enough material to "serve me for the rest of my life" (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, Travel).

        Biedermeierliches Album mit Musterzeichnungen für Stoffe, sogenannte Patronenzeichnungen, ausgeführt in schwarzer Tinte auf festem Papier, nur eine Zeichnung in roter Tinte. 49 Blätter, davon 36 teilweise beidseitig mit Zeichnungen, 1 Blatt mit einem montierten floralen Stoffmuster, 12 Seiten wurden freigelassen, Blattgröße 22,5 x 30,5 cm. Undatiert (frühes 19. Jahrhundert) und ohne Ortsangabe (wohl Süddeutschland).

      - Halbleder-Band der Zeit mit roten Kleisterpapier-Bezügen (Rücken mit Fehlstellen, Einband stellenweise fleckig und berieben), Quer-Folio. Offensichtlich ein in der Praxis einer Manufaktur entstandenes Handbuch für Patroneure, die die Stoffmusterentwürfe der Dessinateure in eine Art technische Zeichnung, die so genannte Patrone, umsetzten. Auf dem Patronenpapier, das im vorliegenden Fall von Hand in Quadrate eingeteilt wurde, entstanden durch die Auflösung des Musters in einzelne Farbpunkte schematische Darstellungen, die dann in ein breites Lochband umgesetzt werden konnten, das beim Jacquardwebstuhl als Grundlage für die maschinelle Fertigung diente. Diese Patronen oder Rasterzeichnungen der Dessins, die die Fadenverkreuzung im Gewebe vorgeben, erinnern an handgemalte Pixel und tatsächlich wird die Erfindung von durch Lochkarten gesteuerten, automatisierten Webstühlen inzwischen als ein Vorläufer der Programmiersprache für Computer und damit der modernen Informationsgesellschaft angesehen. Neben den teilweise fast blattgroß ausgeführten Patronenzeichnungen enthält das vorliegende Album ein großes zeitgenössisches Stoffmuster (11 x 22,5 cm), und eine Zeichnung mit 2 winzigen eingeklebten Stoffmustern. Lose beiliegend eine gefaltete Beilage 'Zur Weber-Bild und Muster-Zeitung' von 1846, sowie zwei spätere handschriftliche Briefe, datiert 1863. Der erste von einer Stuttgarter Kundin der Manufaktur ("Das Tischzeug habe ich . erhalten, nur war ich längere Zeit verreist u. so kam es erst vor kurzem in meine Hände. Sie erhalten durch die Post 11 fl wofür Sie mir gefälligst eine Quittung senden wollen."); der zweite von einem Herrn Leonhardt Stein aus Rothenburg "hinsichtlich der Damast Muster", adressiert an Herrn Schmidt in Künzelsau. Zustand: Durch die Verwendung von Eisengallustinte weisen die Zeichnungen einigen Tintenfraß mit Brüchen, kleineren Fehlstellen und durchschlagender Tinte auf. Das Papier ist stellenweise fleckig. Insgesamt aber für ein Gebrauchsbuch des 19. Jahrhunderts ordentlich erhalten. Trotz der Beeinträchtigung durch den Tintenfraß ist das vorliegende Album ein ansprechendes Zeugnis der handwerklichen Textilherstellung und einer analytischen Technik des Zerlegens von Mustern in Punkte, die uns heute als Vorläufer der Pixel und der Computerprogrammierung fasziniert.

        A history of British fossil mammals, and birds. Large paper copy

      London: John van Voorst, 1846. First edition. Cloth. Very Good. Owen, Richard (1804-92). A history of British fossil mammals and birds. xlvi, 560, [2, errata]pp. Folding table. Text wood-engravings. London: John van Voorst, 1846. 256 x 165 mm. Original dark green cloth, gilt-lettered spine, minor wear. First Edition, Large Paper Copy. Owen was conservator of the Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons from 1842-56, and superintendent of British Museum's Departments of Natural History from 1856 until his retirement in 1883. An anti-Darwinist, Owen developed his own theory of evolution as species development according to divinely implanted laws; however, by the time of Darwin's death in 1889 Owen had come to acknowledge the validity of Darwin's theory of evolution of natural selection.Owen's interest in fossil mammals began in 1836 when he was asked to describe the fossil material brought back by Darwin from the Beagle voyage; his results were issued as Part I of the Zoology of the Voyage of H. M. S. Beagle (1840). Owen went on to publish several works on the subject, including the present one, which caused him to be compared favorably in the British press to Cuvier and von Humboldt. The production of a large paper version in addition to the regular edition was highly unusual for a scientific work published during this period. DSB. Rupke, Owen, p. 351.

        Illuminated Illustrations of the Bible. Copied from select Mss of the Middle Ages

      London: William Smith, 1846 First edition. Contemporary quarter burgundy morocco over marbled boards,ornate gilt-panelled spine, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. . Large octavo. [10] pp. introductory material, and thirty-nine fine chromolithographic plates, heightened in gold, each with a leaf of descriptive text. Chromolithographic title-page, plus printed title in black and red. Slight foxing to some page edges, otherwise a fine, clean copy. Chromolithography quickly established itself as a medium suitable for the reproduction of medieval manuscripts in antiquarian publications of the sort popular in the nineteenth century...The opaque, flat tones of the style of chromolithography which prevailed were ideal for the uniformly bright, clearly-defined areas of color typical of early manuscripts. The modulated tones which Boys had struggled to achieve were not necessary for this sort of publication" (Friedman, Color Printing in England 1486-1870, 138).

Browne was influenced by Richard Henry Dana and, in turn, was imitated by Herman Melville" (Hill 197). A passage from this book which includes the famous line "Thar she blows", appears in the extracts that make up the prefatory matter to Moby Dick.

        A Manual of the History of the Political System of Europe and its Colonies. With Ancient History. With Ancient Greece. With Carthaginians, Ethiopians and Egyptians. (4 Vols total)

      Henry G Bohn 1846. 4 vol, near fine, mixed editions, uniformly bound, c1900 half calf with red marbled boards, some blind tooling, corners and edges rubbed. Spines, blind tooling, raised bands, titles and tooling in gilt to red and brown leather labels, edges brushed. Internally, grey endpapers, no inscriptions, text block edges reddened, all printed by John Childs and Son, Bungay, light spotting. [Vol 1], 1846, A Manual of the History of the Political System of Europe and its Colonies, [5], (viii-xxxii), [1], 2-540 pp, translated from the 5th German edition. [Vol 2], 1847, A Manual of the Ancient History, particularly with regard to the Constitutions, The Commerce, and the Colonies, of the States of Antiquity, , (xvi), [1]2-413, [1], translated from the German.

Heeren's chief merit as an historian was that he looked at the ancient world from a fresh point of view. Instead of merely narrating their political events, he examined their economics, their constitutions and their financial systems, and thus was able to throw new light on the development of the Old World. He possessed vast and varied learning, perfect calmness and impartiality, and great power of historical insight, and is now looked back to as the pioneer in the movement for the economic interpretation of history.

        WONDERFUL STORIES FOR CHILDREN. By Hans Christian Anderson. Translated from the Danish by Mary Howitt.

      [iv], 127pp. Four full-page hand-coloured lithographic plates. Rebound in half calf, gilt over marbled boards. Small octavo. First edition; first issue, with Andersen's name misspelt on the title. Some water-staining to top outer edge of frontis' and title; some minor damage to corners and edges; but overall a very good copy. Tipped-in between the blank and frontispiece is a presentation slip inscribed: 'To W. Jerdan Esq. A tribute of friendship and attachment from the author.' William Jerdan was editor of the Literary Gazette and a fervent admirer of Andersen's work. It was he, who in November 1846, wrote to Andersen urging him to come to England, and it was Jerdan who did much to introduce him to members of the literary establishment. Andersen duly arrived in June 1847 to find himself already an established celebrity. This work was originally issued in cloth. The above copy, when purchased by us, had been rebound in the 19th century in half calf, but was in a wretched condition, the binding in pieces and water-damaged. We have attempted to recreate that leather binding, even to the extent of repeating the misspelling of Andersen's surname. Whilst we are confident that the presentation slip is in Andersen's hand, we cannot be absolutely certain that it belongs with the book. Despite being tipped into the copy when purchased by us, there is always the possibility that it could have been added to the book sometime later than the year of publication. However, the correction to the spelling of Jerdan's name does indicate a lack of familiarity with Jerdan by Andersen and suggest that this slip may well have been presented with the book at the time of their first meeting in 1847. Wonderful Stories was the first collection of Andersen's fairy tales to be translated into English and heralded the beginning of his enormous popularity with children in the United Kingdom.

In this volume he surveys the history of the Oregon conflict and describes the Oregon Territory and its exploration over 350 years, paying special attention to American and English activities of the late 18th century. Not in Streeter or Graff. We are aware of only two copies at auction since 1977. HOWES P520. SABIN 64739. SOLIDAY III:623. SMITH 8316. MONAGHAN 1200.

The rfeps and final leaf of the concordance have a small round (possibly ink) stain (one rfep has two such stains). Small light dampstain to the lower outside margin of the rfeps and the last four leaves of the concordance.

"[T]his Harper publication was a remarkable production for its time and place, and retains its importance in the annals of American boook-making. W.J. Linton, noted wood-engraver and author, knew 'no other book like this, so good, so perfect in all it undertakes.' The illustrations are like picturings of history, as are so many of the old European Biblical paintings and illustrations." Hills 1161.

        Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Congress of Rough Ridrs of the World

      Program, square 8vo (7 1/4 x9 1/2), covers illustrated in color, illustrated, 64 pp. Top hinge a little loose, small chip to botttom edge of front cover, a little edge wear, normal aging; a very nice and clean copy. Buffalo Bill (1846-1917) was one of the most celebrated characters of the 'Old West'. He got his nickname after killing over 4,000 buffalo. He was a phony express rider, and actually won the Congressional Medal of Honor winner. After appearing in various stage and show prodcutions, in 1883 he started the "Buffalo Bill's Wild West" show, which featured Annie Oakley, Sitting Bull, and many other prominant performers of the day. This program, which features a handsome color lithograph front cover was published in 1893, and was issued in the year that he changed the name of his show to "Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World". Given the quality of paper typically used for these programs, this is a very well preserved copy.

        A Christmas Carol in Prose; The Chimes; The Cricket on the Hearth

      Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz,, 1846. Copyright Edition. Octavo (155 × 108 mm). Contemporary burgundy half morocco, spine gilt in compartments, marbled sides. Spine a little faded, some minor rubbing at the extremities, spotting to endpapers, title pages, and occasionally to contents. A very good copy. An attractively bound volume of three of Dickens's Christmas books, including A Christmas Carol. Tauchnitz editions are sometimes thought of as piracies; in fact they were authorized editions for sale to English-speaking travellers on the Continent. Between 1841 and the novelist's death in 1870 Tauchnitz ("a publisher who had Dickens's whole and constant trust", according to Sadrin) published the entire range of Dickens's novels. Dickens even sent one of his sons to Tauchnitz to learn German.

        Autograph Letter Signed 'Rochet d'Héricourt' to a Magazine Editor].

      Paris 1846 - Paris, 18 February 1846. On a folded Octavo leaf (ca. 19,5x12 cm). 2 pp. Brown ink on white paper. Mild fold marks, otherwise a very good letter. Autograph letter by renowned French explorer of the East Africa, the leader of two expeditions to Ethiopia in 1839-40 and 1842-43, which resulted in his books, "Voyage sur la cote orientale de la Mer rouge dans le pays d'Adel et le royaume de Choa" (Paris, 1841) and "Second voyage sur les deux rives de la mer Rouge, dans le pays des Adels et le Royaume de Choa" (Paris, 1846). In a letter to a magazine editor, Rochet d'Héricourt denies a proposal to publish his biography with the detailed description of his travels: "The relation of my travel has been published in the 'Revue Novelle' and I don't have anything to add; regarding my biography the only event of my life which could be included are my travel adventures, and I don't have anything to add to what I've published" [translated from French]. However he will send the editor a copy of the report to the French Academy of Sciences which will be printed soon, and is ready to give "verbal explanations" ("explications verbales") which could be useful for the correspondent. Interesting letter revealing the process of publication of the results of Rochet d'Héricourt's second travel to Abyssinia (1842-43). He mentions the official account of the expedition (Arthus-Bertrand, 1846) and the extensive report prepared for to the French Academy of Sciences (see: La Revue Novelle. Tome 9. 2-me année. Paris, 1846, p. 147-165) which were both published that year.
