        Autograph Letter Signed ('Charles Dickens') to William Hazlitt (1811-1893, editor and translator), 2 pages 8vo, Offices of the Daily News, 'Thursday afternoon', no date.

      - The first page lightly and evenly browned; near-invisible repair to small tear; integral blank leaf. A relatively early letter in Dickens's elegant script, commiserating with Hazlitt on his treatment by the 'readers' or sub-editors, promising to haul them over the coals and to discuss another matter when he has the leisure.'I saw the notice of the French Play this morning, and immediately perceived that the Readers had cut and maimed you . they are the very worst I ever have had anything to do with in my life. I have laid in a chaldron or two of coals, and will haul your reader over them this evening. .' Only two letters from Dickens to Hazlitt are recorded in the Pilgrim Edition of The Letters of Charles Dickens and the present letter is thus apparently unpublished.The Daily News was established in January 1846 as a rival daily paper to The Times, with Dickens as its editor. Hazlitt was a regular contributor (as well as to The Times). Dickens's editorship was very brief, within a month he had persuaded John Forster to take over his desk.Hazlitt, the only son of the writer and painter (1778-1830) had previously been a reporter with Dickens on the 'Morning Chronicle'

        ALS, 2pp., 8vo to R. Hutton re mistakes on a chess board London Dec. 23", 1846

      London, 1846. Roget, Peter Mark (1779-1869). A.L.s. to R. Hutton. [London], Dec. 23, 1846. 2pp. 180 x 117 mm. Small tear in lower margin, traces of mounting on verso. Roget, the author of Roget's Thesaurus, was also a chess buff who "was fond of exercising his ingenuity in the construction and solution of chess problems . . . To assist persons interested in chess, he contrived and published in 1845 a pocket chessboard, called the 'Economic Chessboard'" (DNB). The present letter concerns a defective copy of the "Chess Board," about which Roget's correspondent had written to complain. Roget responded thatI am much obliged to you for having sent me notice of the mistake in the Chess Board: & have only waited to acknowledge your letter, till I could speak to Longmans on the subject, which I was not able to do till yesterday. They, as well as myself, are quite at a loss to account for the mistake, for as the sheets are all printed off from the same block, & can only be folded in one way, I cannot comprehend how it is possible for the squares to have been reversed. I should, therefore, be much obliged if you would send me the one that is faulty, not only in order that you may be furnished with a correct one instead of it, but also that I may be enabled to trace with whom the fault lies & prevent any future recurrence of it, which would the possibility of which I am anxious to prevent, as it would be extremely detrimental to the sale.

        Oath of Israelites

      1846. First Edition . JUDAICA. [Jewish Oath] Imperiale Regio Governo di Venezia. NotificazioneÂ… (Venice): per Francesco Andreola dell I. R. Governo, della Provincia, e dellÂ’ I. R. Marina, (1846-47). Folio (measures approximately 11 inches by 16 inches), modern Folio (11 by 16 inches), modern buff boards; pp. (4). $5000.1846 Venetian printing of the oath to be taken by Jews as litigants in the courts.In medieval Europe, law courts customarily compelled Jews when in litigation with Gentiles to swear a special oath “more judaico” (after the fashion of the Jews). “Both the text of the oath and the symbolic ritual involved in taking it were intended to give it the explicit character of a self-imposed curse, entailing detailed punishment if it were falsely taken. The ceremonial and symbolism were intended to strengthen and make vivid the curse as well as to stress the distrust of the Jew and the wish to humiliate him that were at the root of this special oath ritualÂ… Yet in spite of these extravagant aspects of both ceremonial and formula, fundamentally the oath more judaico was patterned after Jewish religious law” (Encyclopaedia Judaica, 11th ed., XII: 1301-1303). Judges might preface the oath with rituals of their own devising. Up until the 18th century, most courts of Europe employed some form of this oath, and in some towns in Germany and Austria it persisted longer. The present document is an official public notification that the oath remains in use “in all the countries of the Imperial Austrian Monarchy in which the General Civil Code of June 1, 1811, is operative” (Venice at that time formed part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire). The instructions on administering the oath are dated October 1, 1846, and the first page is dated January 4, 1847. The date is of some interest, since the “Jewish Oath” had been abolished in Austria on August 18, 1846 (Austria preceded the other German territories in this respect). The timing suggests that Venice was quick to affirm, in the face of the repeal of the Jewish Oath in Austria, that it was still in force in Venice. Included with the oath is a full English translation, typewritten, bound in paper wrappers and held to the inside cover with a vellum strip. Four typeset folio pages in total, first page with engraved Hapsburg double-eagle.

These publications represent the cumulative work of Le Verrier’s prediction of the existence of the then unknown planet Neptune, using only mathematics and astronomical observations of the planet Uranus. Realizing that the irregularity of the orbit of Uranus was due to the influence of an undiscovered planet further out, Le Verrier succeeded in computing the mass and orbit of the perturbing body. He sent his prediction of the missing planet’s position to Johann Galle (1812-1910) of the Berlin Observatory, who actually found Neptune on his first night of looking, 23 September 1846, based upon Le Verrier’s predicted location.Le Verrier (1811-1877) was encouraged by the physicist Arago, then Director of the Paris Observatory. Unknown to Le Verrier, an English scientist, John Couch Adams, had arrived at the same conclusions, though the results of Adams’ work were written in a private letter and dated two days later than Le Verrier’s public lecture to the French Academy on 31 August, 1846. Although controversy arose over the credit for the discovery, as Adams began his work before Le Verrier and indeed made the same prediction nearly a year earlier, Adams failed to publish until more than a month following Galle’s sighting. The dispute was apparently made even more difficult by Le Verrier’s arrogance and violent temper.Le Verrier went on to work on a re-evaluation of planetary motion and perturbations, and published a table of the motions of all known planets. He also theorized that the slow precession of Mercury’s orbit around the sun could not be completely explained by Newtonian mechanics, and suggested another planet in between Mercury and the sun (Vulcan). He was direct

        Approach to the Temple of Wady Saboua, Nubia

      1846. ROBERTS, David. Original lithograph plate, Approach to the Temple of Wady Saboua, Nubia. [London: F.G. Moon, 1842-49]. Hand-colored lithograph on onionskin, measuring 9-3/4 by 13-3/4 inches, on original mount, measuring 16-7/8 by 23-3/4 inches. $2500.Beautiful original hand-colored lithograph of the approach to the Temple of Wady Saboua, Nubia, from the superb large format first issue of RobertsÂ’ landmark work, Egypt and Nubia (only the first issue is hand-colored on onionskin and mounted on heavier card).Famed lithographer Louis Haghe produced splendid lithographs (including this print) of drawings Roberts made during his 1838-9 journey to Egypt, which were received with widespread enthusiasm when they appeared in 1846-9. “Among all the artists working in EgyptÂ… [Roberts] stands head and shoulders above the rest, both for the number of sites and monuments he recorded and for his interesting presentation” (Clayton, 6). “HagheÂ’s skillful and delicate lithography, and his faithful interpretation of RobertsÂ’ draughtsmanship and dramatic sense, combine in what are undoubtedly remarkable examples ofÂ… lithographic works. Particularly in the Egypt and Nubia section, one feels that the colossal subjects and broad vistas were ideally suited to RobertsÂ’ talent” (Abbey, 341). Slight chipping and soiling to edges of mount, one tear to mount. Print in fine condition. Exceptional hand-colored lithograph from the most famous and desirable work on Egypt.
