        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.

Sage Sale: 'said to be the first book on angling written by an American and printed in America." The book describes the more important American fish and how to catch them, Goodspeed noting that most interesting are "the chapters on tackle, baits, and the general practice of angling, for these tell something about American angling usages then prevalent." 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. A rare and important contribution to American angling

        Recherches sur le mouvement d'Uranus

      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.

      [Poughkeepsie, N.Y.]: American Press - 258 Main St., [ca. 1846].. Broadside, 10 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches. Ornamental border. Several ink stains, one of them causing small closed splits in the paper. Wrinkling and folds. Good. A marvelous and rare broadside, touting the talents of the amazing Martha Ann Honeywell, only three feet tall and born without arms. Miss Honeywell (ca. 1787-1848) was the most prominent and talented of a small group of armless artists who could create amazing needleworks and cuttings, including complicated embroidery and silhouettes. She toured around the country and to Europe, fascinating audiences with her talent and agility. From the text: "This interesting and talented Lady, born without arms, has acquired such extraordinary skill in the use of a common pair of Scissors, that by holding them in her mouth she is enabled to cut out of Paper the most curious and difficult designs ever attempted, or perhaps executed in the known world, such as Scripture Pieces, Likenesses of Distinguished Americans, together with a great variety of Watch Papers, Landscapes, and even the Lord's Prayer, perfectly legible. Not the outlines merely, but resembling engraving. She also writes the Lord's Prayer in a space that can be covered with a Five cent piece." The broadside mentions that "all her elegant work is for sale," and that the admission of twenty-five cents includes a complimentary profile. OCLC locates different broadsides advertising Ms. Honeywell's talents at the Library Company of Philadelphia and the New- York Historical Society, but the present piece appears to be unique.

      1846. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1846. 2 pp undated ads. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, all edges gilt. First Edition of Dickens's fourth Christmas book. This is an unusual tale in which two sisters love the same man, both ultimately settling in with him (though only one is married to him) -- according to Thackeray "a wretched affair." It is in fact quite autobiographical: Dickens loved Mary Hogarth, married her sister Catherine, and then was happy to have his household run by their sister Georgina.~This copy has the vignette title page in the second state, with "A Love Story" on a banner -- without an angel -- above the publisher's imprint (Todd's C2, with the "D" in "BRADBURY" slightly broken). The vast majority of copies (easily 90% we would say) is in the fourth state (with an angel holding the banner, and no publisher's imprint), and copies in the first and third state are virtually impossible to find.~This copy's condition is very good (minor wear at the spine ends, one small mark on the rear cover); atypically, the fragile original endpapers are not cracked.

        Over-Population and its Remedy; or, An Enquiry into the extent and Causes of the Distress Prevailing Among the Labouring Classes of the british Islands, and into the Means of Remedying it

      London: Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans, 1846., 1846. First Edition. Large 8vo.; pp. 446 + 32 of publisher's catalogue dated October 1845. Publisher's embossed brown cloth with gilt titles to spine; yellow end papers. Cloth water stained in specks. Neat owner's name. A remarkably sound and internally clean first printing of this rare and important book. William T. Thornton, English economist, was born at Burnham, Buckinghamshire, on the 14th of February 1813. In 1836 he obtained a clerkship in the London house of the East India Company. In 1858 he became secretary for public works in the India office, a post which he held till his death. He was created a C.B. in 1873. His works include Over-population and its Remedy (1846), in which he put forward a plan for colonizing Irish wastes by Irish peasants; A Plea for Peasant Proprietors (1848), in which his views were developed in greater detail; On Labour (1869); and Old-fashioned Ethics and Commonsense Metaphysics, a volume of essays, published in 1873. The writings of William Thornton are central to the history of the laws of supply and demand and seminal in understanding the rise of neoclassical economics. Until recently, William Thornton has been cast by historians as a minor player in John Stuart Mill's recantation of the wages fund doctrine... Indeed, Thornton was a close personal friend of and associate of Mill's for many years, However, it would be wrong to suggest that Thornton can only be seen as a lesser Mill, backing up the latter's philosophies and with no coherent influence of his own. From 1847 until his death in 1880, Thornton was an active member of the Political Economy Club. This was a monthly conclave of individual scholars and business people founded by David Ricardo and sustained by his followers to address the major issues affecting the new science of political economy. Modern economists looking for precursors in historical texts will find interesting material. One recent example is T Negishi's invocation of Thornton as a pioneer of disequilibrium theory. Others include experimental economists studying the importance of different market institutions on price determination, scholars concerned with the problem of path dependence as well as some Austrian economists interested in Thornton's ideas about competition. In fact Thornton played a greater part in the history of economic thought. His first edition of On Labour was a blistering critique of the laws of supply and demand and served to mobilise the major players in the burgeoning neo-classical movement - Jevons, Edgeworth, Jenkin and Marshall - to reply with mathematical responses to the debate.

        The Poor Cousin: A Novel

      London - T C Newby, 1846 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A very scarce first edition of Elizabeth Daniel's first novel, in three volumes. Elizabeth Daniel(b. 1822) was the illegitimate daughter of George Spencer-Churchill, fifth duke of Marlborough; she had a son and daughterwith her novelist husband Robert Mackenzie Daniel. When Robert was hospitalised due to mental illness in 1846, Elizabeth began writing as a means to provide for her family. Between 1841 and 1877 she published more than twenty novels, the best-known being Georgina Hammond (1849). (ODNB). The Poor Cousin was the first of Elizabeth Daniel's novels, published anonymously in the same year as her husband's hospitalisation. Instead of Elizabeth's name, or that of her husband who edited the book, the title page simply reads, Edited by the author of 'The Scottish Heiress;' 'The Young Widow;' 'The Young Baronet;' Etc. . Robert's preface to the novel explains this decision was made in the hope thathis association, as a successful novelist,wouldmean libraries wouldbe more inclined to accept it. Condition: In half calf leather bindings with marbled boards, though little marbling is visible due to wear. Library copy;gilttitling to spine readsCape of Good Hope Public Library.

      1846. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1846. 2 pp undated ads. Original blind-stamped blue cloth. First Edition of Dickens's account of his 1844 tour of Italy.~His description of the coaching trips which took him from place to place for five months is full of wonderful observations of his fellow-men... His account of a public execution in Rome is remarkable -- his emotional reaction is held firmly in control but revulsion at the whole proceeding is implicit in every line [CGEL]~This copy is in the primary (fine-diaper cloth) binding; copies were also issued in ribbed cloth of the same color. This is a very good copy, with little wear but with some soil on the covers; the endpapers are old but not original. The front flyleaf bears the penciled signature of Walter Smith, bibliographer of Dickens. Smith II pp 44-58.

        View on the Nile - Ferry to Gizeh

      London: Day & Son for F.G. Moon,, 1846-49. 35.5 x 50 cms, lithograph by Louis Haghe after Roberts, with original hand colour, trimmed to the edge of the image and mounted on card as issued. An example from the scarce deluxe edition of the work, generally referred to as the ‘subscribers’ edition’; published concurrently with the standard first edition - at roughly twice the price - it wasn’t stricly limited to subscribers, but the premium for the fine colouring was evidently considered prohibitive and there are far fewer examples in circulation today.
