        A Defence of Negro Slavery, as it exists in the United States.

      Montgomery: Press of the "Alabama Journal", 1846 - Duodecimo (149 x 99 mm). Original brown quarter cloth-backed green paper boards. Extremities worn, spine frayed and split in places, corners bumped, contents foxed, leaves 14.2 and 3 a little cropped affecting single letters of text along fore edge, overall a very good copy. First edition of the Mississippi anti-abolitionist's work summarising proslavery arguments supported by religion and new racial science. The eleven chapters consider the biblical foundations of slavery within early Judaism and Christianity, the history of African slavery, the abolitionist position of England on the topic, the dangers and ineffectuality of emancipation, and the moral, intellectual, and economic benefits of slavery to both slaves and their masters. Of its circulation history, the historian G. Ward Hubbs notes that Estes "was distributing the thousand copies that he had printed to the west Alabama towns between Montgomery and his own Columbus, Mississippi, as well as in Mobile and New Orleans. The [Alabama] Beacon liked Estes' work enough to excerpt his lengthy articles, the only proslavery work to receive such treatment" (p. 71). Sabin 23046. See G. Ward Hubbs, Guarding Greensboro: A Confederate Company in the Making of a Southern Community. Athens, Georgia: The University of Georgia Press, 2003. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Comic History of England, The

      London: Published at the Punch Office, 1846. "624 Pages of Unremitting Forced Wit" Among the Most Popular and Best of Leech's work With Twenty Hand Colored Steel Engraved Plates [LEECH, John, illustrator]. A'BECKETT, Gilbert Abbott. The Comic History of England. [Parts One and Two], [each] With Ten Coloured Etchings, and One Hundred and Twenty Woodcuts. By John Leech. London: Published at the Punch Office, 85, Fleet Street, July 1846 - February 1848. First edition in the original twenty (bound in nineteen) monthly parts. Octavo (8 13/16 x 5 7/8 inches; 224 x 149 mm.). Half-titles printed in red, title-pages printed in red and black. [1]-320; [1]-28, [xii], 29-304, [xii] pp. Twenty hand-colored steel engraved plates (many with original tissue-guards). 240 woodcut illustrations in the text. Small piece torn away from upper corner in part II (pp. 37/38) just affecting page number, some lower marginal foxing to some leaves in part VI, last woodcut on p. 288 (part IX) expertly hand colored. Several front wrappers with early ink initials. The set collates complete except for the 2 pp. blue paper advertisement for Phillip & Co in part I, and the pink slip advertising The Battle of Life etc. in part VI. However this set does have an additional 2 page advertisement (printed in red and blue) at the end of part V (New Weekly Periodical of Original Music). An excellent set chemised in a quarter gray morocco over blue cloth boards slipcase. "In all 20 coloured plates and 240 woodcut illustrations by John Leech. Issued in 19/20 monthly parts in paper wrappers and on completion in cloth at one at one guinea. This work is usually listed under A'Beckett, but its value is almost entirely due to Leech. A'Beckett's text is amusing if read in snatches, but 624 pages of unremitting forced wit becomes monotonous, and few would keep the book but for the illustrations. The coloured plates are beautifully rendered, and though the woodcuts do not compare in execution with the etched plates they are as fine in conception, and show infinitely more subtle humour than the text. Among the most popular and best of Leech's work. The half-titles in first issue must be printed in red." (Tooley, p.245). Artist and illustrator John Leech (1817-1864) provided the illustrations for Dickens' A Christmas Carol, amongst other celebrated Victorian volumes, and was one of the first illustrators for the classic satirical journal, Punch. He established "a convention of social humour that was to last until the 1920s...Extravagantly praised by Ruskin, Leech's often careless but never crude drawings have survived in charm and humour to give us a refreshing glimpse of mid-Victorian society" (Simon Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914). Abbey, Life, 434; Tooley 295; Martin Hardie, pp. 210-211.

        Der Marianka, Mundköchin des Hans-Jörgel von Gumpoldskirchen ... erprobtes Kochbuch ... enthält nebst mehr als 700 Kochregeln ... auch eine vollständige Anleitung zu allen Vorarbeiten ... und eine kleine Naturgeschichte der einheimischen Lebens-Mittel und Naturstoffe...

      Wien [Vienna]: Verlag von Jakob Dirnböck. Very Good-. 1846. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. iv & 416 pages; Contemporary (publisher's?) boards covered with thin brown glazed cloth, spine with a mounted label in pale orange paper. Edges and corners are worn, internal hinges a bit shaken, with four leaves with minor tears from the fore-edges, and the first leaf of the contents at the rear exhibiting a tear which begins at the lower gutter margin and then extends nearly across the page -- none of these tears involves loss of paper. Some scattered foxing and a few corners gently folded down. Attributing this rare Austrian cookbook to its author presents a double puzzle. The title page, indeed, the title itself, gives credit to "Marianka" -- who is identified as "Mundköchin" to Hans-Jörgel von Gumpoldskirchen. But the purported master of the house was really a comic front, the namesake of a weekly publication of satire and humor published in Vienna for decades: „Komische Briefe des Hans-Jörgel von Gumpoldskirchen an seinen Schwager Maxel in Feselau." The founder and first editor was Josef Alois Gleich, who ran "Hans-Jörgel" -- as his creation was called, from 1832-37. His weekly outlived Gleich (who died in 1841) under the successive editorships of Johann Baptist Weis , Anton Langer, Karl Costa, and Karl Gründorf, who took the paper through 1895. The charming name "Marianka" was memorialized in popular songs going back to the 1840's. Was "our" Marianka real? Was she Josef Alois Gleich's cook? The answers are beyond our ability to determine, and we will take our cue from the Austrian National Library who owns one of the rare surviving copies, and does not specify an author's name in its catalogue entry. Whoever wrote this book, it is a real cookbook, not a spoof. The long text is divided into three sections: Section one deals with preparation for cooking (from animal, vegetable and mineral foodstuffs). The second part -- Cooking and spicing of food which deals with meat soups, fast soups, beef dishes, side dishes, vegetables , preserves, Greater pastries and quiver, roasts, salads, cakes and fine baked goods, and beverages. The final section deals with preparing the table, preserving food, sources for and judging provisions, etc. A complete copy, despite minor tears to five leaves. The rarity of this first edition is highlighted by the publication of a second edition the following year, 1847. In that same year, a second volume was published, under a slightly altered title: "Der Marianka, Hauswirthin des Hans-Jörgel von Gumpoldskirchen ..." As the title implies, the later volume is more devoted to housekeeping and household management, rather than pure cookery, on which our volume focuses. OCLC locates two copies of this 1846 first edition -- [Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin - Preußischer Kulturbesitz, Berlin -- OCLC number: 249237905] and [British Library OCLC Number: 562234654]. Both these were catalogued as "8vo" -- but the volume is actually a 12mo with alternating gatherings signed in eights and fours. There is another copy of this 1846 rarity at Österreichische Nationalbibliothek - Austrian National Library. We have found no records beyond these three. A scarce cookbook, specifically written for the Viennese at an early point in the city's mid nineteenth century flowering. The railways were starting to affect the transportation of people and materials, including food, in lower Austria; the Austrian Academy of Sciences was established the following year (1847). The last expression of Austria's revolutions of 1848 -- the October Vienna Uprising was still two years in the future. In another thirty years, the Hotel Sacher and the Café Central would open for business, again changing the way the Viennese viewed and consumed food and drink. .

        Gwiazda. Pismo zbiorowe.

      - Saint Petersburg, Karol Kray, 1846. 8vo. Contemporary Polish half-calf over marbled boards, spine lettered diagonally in gilt, ornamented in blind; pp. x, [2], 246, [12], lithographic portrait-frontispiece, one plate of musical score, one woodcut vignette; tail of spine worn, a little rubbed, internally, apart from occasional very light spotting, a very good copy; provenance: stamp of the Polish National Library (1920s) on title and one further leaf. First edition. This extremely rare volume of collected poetry, translations and essays was published (and contributed to) by Zenon Fisch (Fisz, Fiss, pseudonym Tadeusz Padalica), who was a Polish publicist and essayist (1820, Berlorussia - 1870, Ukraine). He unites in this volume, which was published to raise funds for the reconstruction of a Polish church near Vilnius, two translations of Pushkin, excerpts from Byron, essays on music and literature. Most contributors were Poles living in the Russian Empire outside Poland, the majority in Saint Petersburg, one in Orenburg (north of the Caspian Sea), one in the Caucasus region, and one as far north as Petrozavodsk in Karelia. A list of subscribers contains the names of about 500 Polish readers, residents of Poland or in exile. Fisch published three more annual volumes up to 1849, from 1847 onwards in Kiev. Provenance: The Polish National Library holds three copies and they informed my supplier that there were sales before the Second World War; however, the buyers can not be traced anymore. We were only able to locate the title via the Polish Union Catalogue NUKAT. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Conquest of Scinde.

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1846. A Commentary. Part I, General Sir Charles Napier's Negotiations with the Ameers […] Part II, Campaign in Scinde and Treatment of the Ameers. 2 volumes, octavo. Original vertical-ribbed brown cloth, blind rules to spines, compartments lettered in gilt, decorative panel-stamp to boards in blind incorporating a central roundel with strapwork infill, edges untrimmed, yellow surface-paper endpapers, binder's ticket of Edmonds & Remnants to rear pastedown of vol. 1. Extremities very slightly bumped and rubbed, short (6 mm) split to rear joint of vol. 1, a few trivial marks to covers, small slip with "P.2." inked in contemporary hand mounted to front pastedowns, faint marking to vol. 1 half-title, contents otherwise with only scattering of very mild spots. An exceptionally bright copy, vol. 2 almost entirely unopened. First edition, presentation copy of Outram's account of the controversial annexation of Sind, inscribed "With the author's Comp[lemen]ts" on the half-title of volume 1, probably in a secretarial hand. Having been specifically requested by Napier as commissioner for the treaty terms, Outram came to identify so closely with the position of the amirs and the condition of their people that he broke completely with his superior, publishing this highly personal response to Napier's own account, published the previous year under the same title. "Napier believed the amirs were relics of oppressive feudalism that should be abolished, whereas Outram believed that before the British entered Sind, the people there were as happy as those under any government in Asia. When the governor-general ordered an even more rigorous treaty to be signed by the amirs, Outram became convinced that Napier would use it to goad the amirs into war, which would give him the opportunity to annex the whole of Sind. Knowing how the amirs' undisciplined, ill-armed tribesmen would be slaughtered by Napier's army, Outram wrote to him protesting that his policies were harsh and tyrannical, and that every life lost in consequence would be murder" (ODNB). Events at Hyderabad in February 1843 were central to their dispute, Outram claiming that the amirs had agreed signed a treaty which Napier ignored, not wanting to miss the opportunity to begin the war in earnest. "The contest proved a long and costly one for Outram. For years the uncongenial paper warfare dragged on, and was the source of misrepresentations, misunderstandings, and aspersions on both sides" (ibid.); this is an exceptional copy of a work considered as "a reflection of the giant wills of two determined men" (Riddick).

        [MANUSCRIPT] Brown's River Post Office, Van Diemen's Land : inward letter book, 1846-48.

      Folio ledger book (325 x 210 mm), original marbled card covers with buckram backstrip (covers heavily rubbed, chipped at corners), original paper label to front lettered in calligraphic manuscript 'INWARD LETTER BOOK'; the Brown's River Post Office's manuscript record of all incoming letters, newpapers and packages received between June 16 1846 and September 7 1848; unpaginated (approximately 300 pages); complete, clean and legible. Across many thousands of entries, each including the date, name of receiver and description of article and rate, this unique manuscript ledger provides a meticulously kept record not only of residents at the Brown's River settlement (present-day Kingston, south of Hobart), but also of those at Port Cygnet, Oyster Cove, Lymington, Nicholls' Rivulet, Trial Bay, Mount Louis, Bruny Island, Huon Island and other more remote locations for which the Brown's River office acted as a staging post for mail during this early period. Proctor's road between Brown's River and Hobart Town - which had taken five years to construct - was completed in 1835, but during the 1840s, when the pioneer Russell family acted as the first postmasters for the settlement, mail still arrived at Brown's River from Hobart by steamer. A fascinating and unique piece of Tasmanian postal and social history containing a wealth of information for researchers of family and local history.

        [SHEET MUSIC] Dr. Leichhardt's March, for the piano, composed on the successful termination of his Expedition, after having traversed a distance of nearly 3000 miles through a portion of Australia, hitherto untrodden by civilized man, by his friend, S. H. March. 

      London : T. Boosey & Co., [circa 1846]. Folio, lithographed title page [verso blank] with a scene of the expedition drawn by W. Boosey, slip cancel "for the piano" replacing "for the harp" (as in other copies); pp [1 blank], 2-5, [1 blank]; four leaves in total; occasional foxing, paper spine; a very good copy of this rare sheet music. Following his successful overland expedition which traversed northern Australia from the Darling Downs to Port Essington (October 1844 to December 1845), Ludwig Leichhardt arrived back in Sydney by the ship Heroine on 25 March 1846. Leichhardt's close friend Stephen Hale Marsh, a gifted harpist and pianist, composed two pieces of music to celebrate the explorer's triumphant return: Dr. Leichhardt's March and The Traveller's Return. Two versions of Dr. Leichhardt's March are known: one composed for the harp, the other for the piano. The same title page was utilised for both versions, which explains the slip cancel on the title leaf of the present and other known copies of the piano version. Marsh, whose sister had married the colonial artist John Skinner Prout, emigrated to Australia in 1842. It was on the outward voyage that he and Leichhardt met and became firm friends. In Sydney, Leichhardt was later invited by Marsh to lodge at his residence. Leichhardt adjudged Dr. Leichhardt's March 'extraordinarily beautiful'. The sheet music was printed in London and features a wonderful lithographic illustration of Leichhardt's expedition party. The National Library of Australia and the State Library of New South Wales hold the only two copies of Dr. Leichhardt's March, for the piano recorded in Australian collections, while the National Library also holds the only copy of the version for harp. Reference: Neidorf in Binns (editor) Music Printing and Publishing in Australia, pp 43, 49.

        Account book. Rev'd I. Mickleburgh. 1846. 1847. 1848.

      Upper cover so lettered but actually January 1 - January 21 1849 1846 - Ms. volume, small 4to., approximately 335 closely written up pages (i.e. excluding blanks), in ink on ruled paper, original vellum boards, wanting the clasp, the binding a bit shaken but still in very good condition. Far, far more than an 'account book' in the usual sense but actually a detailed journal of the daily life of John Mickleburgh, a Church of England country parson living and working in the rural parishes of Wrotham and St. Mary Platt about half way between Sevenoaks and Maidstone in Kent. The journal makes absorbing reading, covering the whole period from 1st January 1846 to 21st January 1849, a complete block of some 159 weeks. John and his wife Fanny were probably then in their thirties and, by August 1848, had 6 children, born variously between 1835 and 1848. Appointed the first vicar of the new parish of St. Mary, Platt, John Mickleburgh was an enthusiastic priest and was particularly involved with his parish Sunday schools. The diary is full of descriptions of his work for the children, the appointment and support of the school mistress, Sarah Roots, and the building of a new school (he already had a new church built in 1843). The designs of the new school (Platt National School), the work with the architect, raising funds, the appointment of a new school master (Sarah Roots had gone), the management committee, curriculum and so forth, are all recorded in some detail. The school was opened on 30 November 1846 with 50 children on the roll. The diaries also faithfully record the mundane minutiae of parish life (and death), the weekly round of services, and the highs and lows of village life in all aspects of which the parson and his family were central players. The narrative part of the journal is in each case faced by detailed financial records of family and official expenses. This diary is a remarkable document, bringing to life as it does the stresses and strains, as well as the joys and the minor successes, of a conscientious country parson in early Victorian Kent. John Mickleburgh, admitted pensioner at St. Catherine's College, Cambridge, on July 4, 1836, was the son of James Mickleburgh Esq. of Thanet House, Margate, Kent. B.A. 1840: ordained deacon (Winchester, for Exeter), 1840; priest (Exeter) 1841. Curate of Tregony, Cornwall, 1841-4; vicar of Platt, Kent, 1845-9. Died June 12, 1849, less than five months after the last entry in his journal. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Four early watercolour portraits of Australian Aborigines after lithographs by George French Angas and Henry Hainsselin.

      [Australia? : c.1846]. Four individual watercolour head-and-shoulder portraits, each approximately 110 x 90 mm, on sheet 400 x 325 mm, paper watermarked J. Whatman Turkey Mill 1846; the artist's captions in pencil beneath each portrait read (anti-clockwise from top right): Kertamaroo / King John; Mocata (his wife); Native of Gipps Land, Victoria; Yonki Yonka, Native of Western Port tribe; unmounted; in fine condition. Although unsigned, this quartet of portraits of indigenous Australian subjects was made by a reasonably accomplished artist, in all likelihood within a few short years of the first publication of the images as lithographs. The top pair of portraits, depicting the South Australian Aborigines Kertamaroo (King John) and Mocata, are after a lithograph by George French Angas. Angas' lithograph was first published in 1840 as the frontispiece to the Fourth Report of the Directors of the South Australian Company (Ferguson, 3086). The lithograph appeared again in 1843 as one of the plates in South Australia in 1842. By one who lived there nearly four years (Ferguson, 3721), with the notice that the portraits had originally been "Model'd from life by Mrs Walker." The two bottom portraits depict Victorian Aborigines from the west Gippsland district. Both are after lithographic plates by Henry Hainsselin (which in turn were created from sketches made "on the spot" by G.H. Haydon), published in 1846 in Haydon's Five years' experience in Australia Felix (Ferguson, 4305). While the watercolours after Angas are relatively early for South Australian subject matter of this type, the portraits of the two Victorian Aborigines - which also happen to be more striking and more successfully executed - are significantly early in terms of the history of the settlement of Port Phillip.

        Steam Boat Wharf from Portico of Mac[k's] Hotel Gelong [sic]

      Pencil drawing and ink wash, 145 x 225 mm, titled in pencil lower right. This vignette, painted en grisaillefrom the carriage entrance to Mack's Hotel, Geelong, shows the outlook over Corio Bay. Various sailing ships are arriving and departing from the pier seen through the bluestone archway, while two well dressed visitors wait by a sign advertising carriages for hire. In all likelihood the artist was a guest at the hotel during his stay at Geelong, and painted this little scene en plein air. Built from bluestone in 1846 on the site of the earlier timber building known as the Wool Pack Inn, Mack's Hotel in Corio Terrace (now Brougham Street) ran under the proprietorship of early Geelong settler Joseph Gardner Mack. Withaccommodation for 78, stabling for 44 horses and a ballroom, the hotel by the bay was a prominent location for society events. Edward Turner arrived in Melbourne in 1856, and after visiting Geelong, Portsea and the Forest Creek diggings travelled to Sydney in 1857. He worked as an engraver, married in 1861, and in 1863 started his own business as a lithographic printer. By 1866 he was advertising as a bookseller and stationer and in 1871 he entered a partnership with William Henderson, establishing in Hunter Street a firm of booksellers, stationers, publishers and printers under the name Turner and Henderson. The firm also operated as an art gallery. Turner died in 1913; his son inherited the business, but within a year was declared bankrupt. Provenance: Acquired from the artist's descendants in Sydney by Tim McCormick in the 1980s. A collection of related works depicting Sydney and surroundings (some signed) from the same source were acquired by the Mitchell Library in 2002 (PXE 879).

Attractive full red morocco gilt & 48 hand-colored plates.

      New York: Strong and Burdick, nd 1846 - Vol 1 only (though no volume number(s) indicated anywhere), crown 4to (10” x 7½”), pp. (i –ii), 3, iv, 5-134 (of 137), (i), ii-iv index, hand-colored lithograph frontispiece, hand-colored lithograph extra title, 46 hand colored lithograph plates (with total of 68 images). The title page says “illustrated with sixty-six beautiful engravings”. The author was famously motivated by marketing considerations & thus counted each image on the plates as ‘engravings’. This copy has 48 plates including the hand colored frontispiece & the extra hand colored title. 22 of the 46 plates carry double engravings for a total of 68 ‘engravings’ (or 70 if you count the frontispiece & extra title). The text ends with p. 134 (of 137) but the index refers only up to p. 135 for ‘High Blackberry’, apparently lacking or never included, & has 4 pp. index following. Bennett, p. 103, notes “The first volume of the first 1846 edition calmly announces ‘6000 colored engraving by the author. The one volume actually has 50---including frontis and decorative title’. Bennett lists the 4 vols edition as 1848-50 ‘.with 240 hand colored plates.’ & mentions later editions through 1853. Nissen 1905 lists the 4vols edition as 1846-50 with one portrait & ‘195 lith’. There seem to be many anomalies with respect both numbers of plates and pages in the various issues of the editions from the several publishers form 1846 to 1853. There are two (2) trimmed hand colored botanical plates (with a small perforation & a tear) from another unrelated source laid in. Attractive later full red morocco in fine condition, back in six compartments, gilt lettered in the second, gilt center ornaments in the rest, all edges gilt. Sheets & 48 plates mostly very good with age toning, some minor stains & marginal imperfections, a few with light foxing. Two small erasures on the title page. H7510 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A previously unrecorded daguerreotype portrait.

      [New York: John Plumbe,, July 1846]. First generation daguerreotype, sixth-plate size (3 x 2½ ins; 70 × 58 mm), original paper seals intact (upper portion of the plate slightly cropped), with a brass preserver, housed in the original black sand-grain leather-covered wooden case, the inner edges with a gilt decorative roll, the cover lined with red velvet stamped with a floral design, two hooks and catches. Double elliptical brass mat and glass expertly supplied by Northeast Document Conservation Center. Case a little rubbed, slight oxidization along edges of plate, as is common with daguerreotypes; very good. Before what would prove to be her final departure for Europe, Margaret Fuller's fame was such that she was contacted by the famous New York daguerreotype artist John Plumbe. "Mr. Plumbe has sent to ask me if I would let him take a daguerreotype of me for his gallery", she wrote to her brother Richard on 4 July 1846, "& I should try for those for you & Eugene [their brother] at the same time". This daguerreotype was taken at that session. Until now, only three daguerreotypes of Margaret Fuller have been identified, all in institutions. The daguerreotype at Harvard (in the collection Images of the Channing, Fuller, and Loring Families, c.1850–87 (MS Am 2593); Houghton Library, Harvard University) is the only other recorded daguerreotype from the July 1846 sitting. The Harvard image, which came to the university through the Fuller family, shows Fuller facing right, as in the present daguerreotype. The Harvard catalogue dates the image "before 1850", but as Fuller sailed for Europe on 1 August 1846, it must date to July 1846. Another image, sometimes misleadingly described as "the only photographic image" of Fuller, survives in two examples in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. These are in fact second-generation copies that the Boston firm Southworth & Hawes made in 1855 for the posthumous edition of Margaret Fuller's writings that her brother Richard edited and published. The Met and MFA copies are quarter-plate size and show Fuller facing left, but are otherwise identical to the original 1846 daguerreotype now at Harvard. The reversed image is indicative that they are secondary daguerreotypes. The present, previously unrecorded daguerreotype is similar to the Harvard example, but the pose is subtly different: Fuller's shawl is wrapped tighter around her, her head is inclined closer to the book, and much of her right hand is visible. The present example then is evidently a distinct original daguerreotype taking at the 1846 sitting, in sixth-plate format. The daguerreotype is housed in its original case showing two dateable features. The case is leather-covered wood, typical of early daguerreotypes, rather than the thermoplastic "union cases" produced from about 1855 to 1865. The preserver – a brass frame that wraps the glass, mat, and image – was first used around 1847, so this is an early example. Margaret Fuller (1810–1850) was the first American to write a book on women's equality, and the first woman to be allowed access to the library at Harvard. She was the first woman journalist at the New York Tribune and the first full-time book reviewer in American journalism. Reporting from Rome during the First Italian War of Independence, she was the first female foreign war correspondent and the first to serve under combat conditions. She was the first female literary critic whose work was important enough to set the literary standards of her time. She was an outspoken advocate of women's rights, education, prison reform, the abolition of slavery, and a model for female leadership and innovative thinking. This daguerreotype captures her at the height of her fame and influence. Having served as the first editor of the Transcendentalist journal The Dial from 1840 to 1842, she continued as a contributor to it, publishing her essay "The Great Lawsuit: Man versus Men, Woman versus Women" in the magazine in 1843, in which she called for women's equality. When The Dial ceased publication in 1844, Fuller travelled west which resulted in her book Summer on the Lakes. Impressed, Horace Greeley invited her to join his New York Tribune as a book editor. Her second and most famous work, Women in the Nineteenth Century, was published in 1845, an elaboration and continuation of her earlier essay in The Dial. It is considered the first major feminist work in the United States and remains a classic text of feminist thought. In August 1846 Fuller became a foreign correspondent, leaving New York for England and France, and settling in Rome the following year.

        Relation du Voyage Fait en 1843-44 en Grèce et dans le Levant. Faite en 1845 - 1844 par A. M. Chenavard, architecte, E. Rey. peintre, professeur a l’école des beaux arts de Lyon, et J. M. Dalgabio, architect.

      Imprimerie de Léon Boitel, Lyon 1846 - [3] 173 pp. + [1 blank, 1 table de matières], ex- libris stamp of Albert Breittmayer on title page, scattered foxing, boards rubbed, otherwise copy in good condition. First and only edition of this splendid work. Brunet states that only 200 copies were printed. He is the cousin of the painter Paul Chenavard (1807-1895), and was a student of Durand and Barthélémy Vignon at the École des Beaux-Arts de Lyon. He was admitted to the National School of Fine Arts in Paris in 1809. He was one of the founding members of the Société académique d’architecture de Lyon. He served as chief architect of the Rhône department in 1818-1850, and taught at the School of Fine Arts of Our Lady in Lyon from 1823 to 1861. He made several trips to Italy and Greece between 1843 and 1844 and was named correspondent of the Institute in 1855. Chenavard had intended to produce this work in parts of 40 livraisons with 4 plates in each, which would have resulted in 160 plates. Half the numbers actually appeared, after drawings by both Chevanard and Rey. Plates 28b and 48b are not in the list of plates but were added afterwards. A leaf of text accompanies plate 28b (Statue votive a Épidaure); there appears to be no leaf of text for 48b which contains details of the wall surrounding Odysseus’s palace in Ithaca. "The Voyage en Grèce" (1858) is sometimes referred to as the 'atlas' to the second edition of the 'Relation' which appeared in 1849 under a similar title. It is in fact an independent publication, which contains a summary account of the journey made by Chenavard, Rey and Dalgabio in 1843-44, and is of great importance for the many views it contains of Athens, Delphi and Ithaca. A few plates of Egypt are also included. Bibliographic references: Blackmer 334; Atabey 229. Size: 8vo [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Brunet I, col. 611, IV, cols. 1254-1255; Graesse I, p. 276, VI/1, p. 96; Sinkankas 1846, 1847. Two works giving an extensive description and illustration of the remarkable collection of engraved gems of Johann Martin Ebermeyer (1664-1743), with engraved pictures and scenes from classical mythology, literature, and history. The engravings in text "are exquisitely engraved. The richness of detail suggests that much of it was supplied by the artist & engraver to make more impressive what may have been a rather plain gem. Above each of the enlarged depictions appears a plain, or sometimes elaborately, jeweled mount in which the gem was set; these appear to be actual size..." (Sinkankas). According to Furtwängler (cited by Sinkankas), the gems were produced by the Nuremberg gemcutter Christoph Dorsch, and the collection was later sold to the King of Portugal. With two small bookplates. Waterstain in outer margin towards end. Lower row of medallions on table XI (opposite page 140) in volume 2 is left empty and lacking the portrait. A good copy.

      ICCU 0449661 (1 copy); cf. BMC NH, p. 2121; Volbracht 2111"sehr selten" (1846 issue); not in Kelly; Nissen, BBI; Stafleu & Cowan. Extremely rare first issue of this Italian publication on edible and poisonous fungi, with hand-coloured lithographed illustrations (not chromolithographs as stated in the title) and the author's hand-written presentation inscription on the wrappers. The title used on the title-page differs slightly from that on the title-wrappers, omitting "cromo-litografíco", and contains a dedication to Don Giacomo Beretta. It was reissued in 1846, with new title-wrappers.Folded, some foxing some and occasional stains, wrappers slightly soiled and tattered. Nonetheless still a good copy of this rare mycological work.
