        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.

      Paris: W. Coquebert, 1846. - 100pp. Half title. Slightly later half pigskin and marbled boards, spine gilt. Light wear to boards. Quite clean internally. Very good. A rare, contemporary, and thorough account of the Oregon boundary question, which at the time was a major source of divisiveness in Anglo-American relations. Poussin travelled extensively throughout the United States in the 1820s, and produced a valuable illustrated account of his travels. 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.

A very minimal amount of light foxing and endpapers slightly discolored (offsetting from the glue or boards and/or foxing). 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. A small marginal smudge to the frontispiece, and the protective tissue (which is present) has a small (less than one inch) closed tear at the top, and the tissue (though not the pages themselves) is foxed.

Artists were engaged for more than six years in the preparation of the designs and engravings included in this Bible, at a cost of over $20,000. "[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.

        Map of the City of New York

      Homans & Ellis, 1846. Map. Engraving. Image measures 12.5" x 10.5". This finely drawn map of Manhattan depicts "New York as it was in 1846," and covers up to 21st St. on the west side and 34th St. on the east side. It also includes small sections of Brooklyn Heights and Williamsburg. The map is meticulously rendered with street names and piers numbered and labeled. Evidence of early Dutch settlement is still apparent in many of the names. Parks, ferry lines, selected public buildings, and other points of interest such as Castle Garden are also indicated. A key in the lower right labels public buildings in Brooklyn and lists the current population at 59,500. This map was published in Edward Ruggles's "Picture of New York" in 1846, designed, as per its title page, as a "guide to citizens and strangers." The map is in good condition with no tears or hole. Original folds as issued. Overall staining. Right margin is cut from where the map was tipped into the accompanying volume. David H. Burr (1803-1875) served as Topographer to the United States Post Office and Geographer to the House of Representatives and was widely known for his accuracy and attention to detail. Burr was one of the first cartographers to map each of the United States individually. This detailed map is a fine document of New York City's growth in the mid-19th century.

        The Poetical Works of William Wordsworth

      Edward Moxon, London 1846 - Beautiful set of Wordsworth's poems, warmly inscribed in Volume I. The collection is organized thematically, and includes "Tintern Abbey," "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud," "The World Is Too Much With Us," and "Ode: Intimations of Immortality": "What though the radiance which was once so bright / Be now forever taken from my sight, / Though nothing can bring back the hour / Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower; / We will grieve not, rather find / Strength in what remains behind." Wordsworth has inscribed the first volume: "To Louisa Susan Ricarda Fenwick from her affectionate Friend William Wordsworth, Bath, March 23rd 1847." Louisa's aunt, Isabella Fenwick, was one of Wordsworth's most cherished friends: she is best remembered today for her efforts, in 1843, to record Wordsworth's observations on his most famous poems. The 180-page manuscript known as the Fenwick Notes, now housed in the Wordsworth Library at Grasmere, remains a crucial source for scholars of English Romanticism. Isabella's niece Louisa Fenwick was a close member of Wordsworth's circle as well; Wordsworth stayed in Bath with Isabella and Louisa for six weeks in the spring of 1847, when he inscribed this set to his young hostess. A near-fine set with a compelling literary association, handsomely bound by Hayday. Seven octavo volumes, full polished calf gilt, raised bands, red and green spine labels, marbled edges and endpapers. Portrait frontispiece to Volume I; Volumes I, II and V expertly rebacked with the original spines laid down. Lightest rubbing and toning to bindings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Narrative of a Mission to Bokhara, in the Years 1843-1845, to ascertain the Fate of Colonel Stoddart and Captain Conolly [...]

      London: Published for the Author by John W. Parker, 1846. Fourth edition. 8vo. pp. xxvii, [i], 515, [i] + portrait frontis. Modern quarter calf over marbled boards. Effusive full-page inscription on half title to John Browne (of Chiseldon House, Wiltshire), with blessings in English, Arabic and Hebrew, possibly written on separate occasions as the first is addressed to John Browne Esq and the second (in a slightly freer hand, after dinner?) is addressed to ‘my [or Mrs?] John Browne’ and dated 1 May 1847; it’s entirely possible that Wolff gallantly offered to add a further inscription to Brown’s wife. Stoddart, a soldier rather than a diplomat, was sent to Bokhara in 1838 - chiefly to curtail any Russian influence. His imprisonment seems to have arisen from a series of gaffes and the Emir’s natural suspicion of foreign ‘spies’. Conolly, who was well versed in the ways of central Asian diplomacy (and is credited with coining the phrase ‘the great game’) attempted to negotiate his release but instead shared Stoddart’s fate. They were executed when British prestige plumbed new depths in the aftermath of the First Afghan War. News reached Britain by way of one of Conolly’s Persian servants, but Wolff volunteered to journey to Bokhara himself to confirm thir fate. Peter Hopkirk (‘The Great Game’) describes him as “a brave but highly eccentric clergyman” and recounts how he “was lucky to escape with his own life, only doing so, it is said, because his bizarre appearance in full canonicals, made the unpredictable Emir ‘shake with uncontrollable laughter’”.

Fr. 22, June 1846, pp. 907-918. 4to. ---- <br><br> Sparrow, Milestones of Science 132. - In 1845 the astronomer and physicist Francois Arago encouraged Le Verrier to examine observed anomalies in the movements of the known planet Uranus. Le Verrier began by establishing a precise theory of Uranus which he demonstrated in his memoir "Recherches sur les Mouvements d&#39;Uranus" published in Volume 22, number 22. He showed that the discrepancies in the orbit of Uranus could not be explained by the gravitational effects of the Sun, Jupiter or Saturn, but were in fact caused by the presence of an as yet unknown planet within its orbit..

      [Chicago. ca. 1846]. - pp.[89]-96. Disbound. Light soiling and wear. Good. A scarce printed letter from John Quincy Adams to the anti-slavery committee in Bangor, dated July 4, 1843, followed by a report from the Monroe, New York, DEMOCRAT about Adams' recent journey through the state. In his letter to the Bangor committee, Adams declines an invitation to speak, citing poor health, but contributes a "strong blast at the institution of slavery" (Byrd). "The extinction of SLAVERY from the face of the earth," Adams writes, "is a problem, moral, political, religious, which at this moment rocks the foundations of human society throughout the regions of civilized man. It is, indeed, nothing more nor less than the consummation of the Christian religion" (p.[89]). The letter first appeared in a regular issue of THE LIBERTY TREE (probably the December 1843 issue, according to Byrd) and was most likely printed separately (but retaining original pagination) along with other important documents from the first volume of that publication approximately three years later. THE LIBERTY TREE was a monthly anti-slavery periodical edited and published in Chicago by Zebina Eastman from 1843 to circa 1846. OCLC lists five copies - at the University of Chicago, the Libraries of the Claremont Colleges, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, Brown University, and Princeton. BYRD 1009.

        Fine LS , 'Juan M. de Rosas' with a fine flourish, (in Spanish with translation), to Admiral Borrles, (Juan Manuel de, 1793-1877, Argentinian dictator 1835-1852)

      1846 - "thanking your Excellency most warmly for the fine and noble sense of duty you have shown towards me, by your Excellency's offering to Señor Dickson to arrange that a Telescope destined for me be received on board the Apollo, should it reach Falmouth in time . I take this pleasant and interesting occasion to send your Excellency my cordial and deep appreciation, and to ask you to believe me your Excellency's most devoted servant", 1 side folio and conjugate blank, Buenos Aires, 2nd July Rosas learnt first to read and write after he was married and already a successful cattle breeder. Having made an efficient fighting force of his Vaqueros against the Indians, his help was sought by contending political parties. He might have ruled his country till his death had not several of his generals and even his family defected, when they began to live in fear of his suspicions and violence, for which he has been compared with Rome's Caligula. Although Rosas finally sought exile in England, his relations with England were strained by his blockading the access to the Paranà, and long siege of Montevideo at this time, both affecting the extensive British and French trade there.

As Brown was a tackle dealer, it is not surprising that this area is among his chief concerns, and he goes into much useful and historical detail.

      1846 - In: Comptes Rendus Acad. Sci. Fr. 22, June 1846, pp. 907-918. 4to. ---- Sparrow, Milestones of Science 132. - In 1845 the astronomer and physicist Francois Arago encouraged Le Verrier to examine observed anomalies in the movements of the known planet Uranus. Le Verrier began by establishing a precise theory of Uranus which he demonstrated in his memoir "Recherches sur les Mouvements d'Uranus" published in Volume 22, number 22. He showed that the discrepancies in the orbit of Uranus could not be explained by the gravitational effects of the Sun, Jupiter or Saturn, but were in fact caused by the presence of an as yet unknown planet within its orbit.
