        The Count of Monte Christo ] [ The Count of Monte Cristo ] The Chateau D'If: A Romance

      Simms and M'Intyre, W. S. Orr and Co., Belfast and London 1846 - TRUE FIRST APPEARANCE IN ENGLISH OF THE COUNT OF MONTE CHRISTO. THE ONLY ENGLISH TRANSLATION BASED ON THE ORIGINAL TEXT OF THE NOVEL. Octavo (160 × 100 mm.), pp. [8], 400, [2]. With the engraved part-title, half-title, and leaf of publisher's advertisements. Original publisher's plum cloth, decorated in blind, spine lettered in gilt, yellow coated endpapers. Very occasional slight spots, spine rubbed and darkened, slight restorations to extremities. TRUE FIRST APPEARANCE IN ENGLISH, very rare, of any part of Le Comte de Monte Christo, and the first and only English translation based on the original text of the novel. With the original date of 24 February in the first line of the text, and the original spelling of "Monte Christo" throughout. Predating the Chapman and Hall edition of the same year. In the original publisher's cloth. Le Comte de Monte Christo first appeared as a serial in the Parisian newspaper Le Journal des Debats from 28 August 1844 to 15 January 1846. This was followed by a Brussels edition in book form (1845-1846), set up from the Journal des Débats and issued in parts, followed by a Paris edition in book form (1845-1846, now a very rare and sought-after book: the last copy to appear at auction sold for EUR 253,000 (Christie's Paris 21/4/2010)). English publishers were quick to respond to the remarkable popularity of the novel in France. First to start bringing out Monte Christo in English were Simms, M'Intyre and Orr, at the beginning of March 1846, just six weeks after the final instalment of the novel in Le Journal des Débats. Like the Brussels publishers, Simms and M'Intyre issued the novel in parts: the first third of the text (the action in Marseilles and the Chateau D'If) appeared under the title of The Chateau D'If, as volume 3 of The Parlour Novelist, a popular series published by Simms and M'Intyre between 1846 and 1863 (Sadleir vol. 2 p. 146). Following the success of The Chateau D'If, Simms and M'Intyre brought out the remaining portion of the text (the action in Rome and Paris) a little later as volumes 8 and 9 of The Parlour Novelist, under the title of The Count of Monte Christo. The title-pages of all three volumes give the translator as Emma Hardy. Simms and M'Intyre state their priority in the preface at the beginning of The Chateau D'If: "In presenting the following translation to the English Public, the publishers feel considerable gratification in being the first to make known to them this charming romance, the chef d'oeuvre of the most distinguished of French Novelists, ALEXANDRE DUMAS. . . Belfast, March 1, 1846" (p. [5]). The Simms and M'Intyre translation was based on the original text of the novel as it first appeared in Le Journal des Débats. This is confirmed by the date of 24 February in the first line of the text (later revised to 28 February), and the spelling of Christo with an "h" throughout (this spelling was retained in the early Paris and Brussels editions, and was only changed to Cristo in the later first illustrated edition (Paris, Au Bureau de L'Écho Des Feuilletons, 1846)). A second English translation (the first illustrated English translation) of Monte Christo (The Count of Monte-Cristo [sic], London, Chapman & Hall, translator unknown) also appeared in 1846. This was based on a revised text of the novel, (most obviously identified by the date of 28 February in the first line, and the spelling of Cristo without an "h" throughout). The source text for the Chapman & Hall edition was possibly the first illustrated edition published in Paris. According to Munro and Sadleir, the Chapman & Hall edition appeared after the first part of the Simms and M'Intyre edition, Parlour Novelist vol. 3, and probably just before Parlour Novelist vols. 8 and 9. "Although Parlour Novelist Nos. 8 and 9 in all likelihood post-dated the Chapman and Hall edition, No. 3 pre-dated i . . . (FULL DESCRIPTION ON REQUEST) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Discoveries in Australia; with an Account of the Coasts and Rivers Explored and Surveyed during the Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle

      T. & W. Boone, London 1846 - Two volumes, octavo, with 26 plates and eight folding charts (six of them tipped into pockets of the binding, as issued); bound without the Sibourne advertisements at front of vol. II, but with both of the fragile advertising slips ('South Australia and its Mines' & 'Eyre's Journal');a fine copy in the original ribbed blue-green cloth with kangaroo and emu vignettes in gilt on spines. First edition: a handsome copy in original binding of the Beagle's great Australian survey voyage, often considered the last major voyage of Australian discovery. This work recounts the third and final circumnavigation of HMS Beagle from 1837 to 1843 under Wickham and Stokes, when the ship was in Australian waters, having been dispatched by the Admiralty to complete the mapping of the remote coasts of New Holland, in particular the north-west coast and the Torres Strait.John Lort Stokes, who joined the Beagle in 1824, served on her for eighteen years, on all three circumnavigations, working up from a midshipman to be the final commander, a position he was given in Sydney in 1841. He had been the companion, that is, of everyone from Darwin to Phillip Parker King, and was easily the longest-serving officer on the famous ship. From 1837 to 1843 the Beagle was in Australian waters, her personnel completing the survey of the northwest coast, and charting rivers and exploring inland where appropriate. It was Stokes who charted and named Victoria River and Port Darwin, the latter in commemoration of his former shipmate. Stokes' time in command of the Beagle confirmed his reputation as a fine marine surveyor, and many of his charts of the northern Australia coast remained in use for over a century."Stokes is noted as an engaging, vivacious and entertaining writer. As the official account of the last major expedition of Australian discovery, his book is essential to a collection relating to coastal voyages. It is also of considerable interest to collectors of inland exploration journals, since Stokes and the crew of the Beagle undertook many expeditions inland from the coast which are recorded in his book. It is a scarce book and is eagerly sought by collectors?" (Wantrup). Provenance: Private collection (Australia). A couple of light spots but a really good copy in original binding, with just a few mild abrasions around spines. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Table Showing the State of his Navy, (1810-1859, from 1830 King of the Two Sicilies)]

      1846 - both sail and steam, in a neat hand, listing the type of vessel, her name and her armaments, beginning with the 80-gun Man-of-War 'Vesuvio', carrying 58 24-pound cannons, 4 80-pound and 4 30-pound howitzers ('obici'), and 16 24-pound carronades ('caronati', short guns), also 5 Frigates, 2 Corvettes, 5 Brigantines, and 2 Schooners ('Golette'), (all sail), followed by the growing number of Steam vessels, beginning with 6 300-horsepower Frigates, each carrying a 117-pound and a 60-pound howitzer, and 4 30-pound carronades, and 6 further steam vessels, ('battelli a vapore') from 200 to 40 horsepower, including the Ferdinando II (180 h.p.), while two more frigates as above are building ('in cantiere', at Castellamare), six columns on 1 side folio and conjugate blank, no place (stationer's stamp 'Naples'), no date, circa Of the sailing vessels, the oldest is the Amalia (1811), followed by Vesuvio (1824). In 1843, with Partenope (1834) and Regina Isabella (1827), they escorted the King's sister, Princess Teresa Cristina, to Brazil, for her marriage to Pedro II. Of the steam vessels, the Ferdinando II, built in England, (1833), was the first such in the Neapolitan navy. Four of the six steam frigates listed here were launched at Gravesend in 1843, but the other two, Ercole and Archimede, were launched at Castellamare the following year, marking the beginning of steamship construction in Naples. The latest in the list appears to be the Sannite (Sannita), launched from Castellamare on 7th August 1846.

        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.

      Verlag von Jakob Dirnböck, Wien [Vienna] 1846 - 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.

        Entrance to the Citadel of Cairo

      1846. ROBERTS, David. Original lithograph plate, The Entrance to the Citadel of Cairo. [London: F.G. Moon, 1846]. Hand-colored lithograph on onionskin, measuring 12-3/4 by 20-3/4 inches, on original mount, measuring 16-1/2 by 23-3/4 inches. $4500.Beautiful original hand-colored lithograph of the entrance to the citadel of Cairo (with many Egyptians in colorful costumes in the foreground), 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. Print in fine condition. Magnificent hand-colored lithograph from the most famous and desirable work on Egypt.

        Cricket on the Hearth

      1846. First Edition . DICKENS, Charles. The Cricket on the Hearth. London: Bradbury and Evans, 1846. Small octavo, mid-20th century full crushed brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. $1800.First edition of DickensÂ’ third Christmas Book, illustrated with frontispiece, vignette title page, and 12 illustrations by Leech, Doyle, Landseer and Stanfield—six of the plates engraved by Edward Dalziel, with three autograph notes signed by him laid in—in handsome morocco-gilt with original cloth bound in by Worsfold.Beginning in 1843 with A Christmas Carol, Dickens published five Christmas-themed books for the holiday season, creating a new literary genre in the process. The Cricket on the Hearth was the third in the series, and ""it is said to rank second in importance as a Christmas Book"" after the Carol (Eckel, 119). It is ""perhaps most affecting still for its portrait of a blind girl whose father has over the years created for her a wonderfully bright and luxurious world in which she believes she lives; no one was better at such effects than Dickens"" (Ackroyd, 483). Without advertisement leaves. Smith II:6. Gimbel A92. Eckel, 119-20. Six of the plates in this book were engraved by the Dalziel Brothers. Edward ""was in business at first, but spent much of his spare time studying art, finally joining his brother George in London in 1839 as a wood engraver"" (Houfe, 111). From 1855-75, ""wood-engraving reached its zenith in the work of the Dalziel brothersÂ… As patrons of illustrators and producers of books illustrated by teams of artists, the Dalziels attained a position of great importance"" (Harthan, 205). These undated autograph notes from Edward Dalziel concern the selection of subjects for illustration and delays in production, one due to his own illness and another due to an artist's time requirements.Inoffensive light soiling, old folds, small tape repairs to autograph notes; small marginal chip to one note, not affecting text. Book lovely. Very nearly fine condition.

        Pomologie française. Recueil des plus beaux Fruits cultivés en France...

      Paris, Langlois et Leclercq, 1846. 4 volumes. Folio (413 x 280mm). With three plain and 420 stipple-engraved plates printed in colours and finished by hand. Contemporary half purple calf, gilt spines with monogram. A fine copy of the most attractive fruit book ever produced. This work represents the apogee of French stipple-engraved colour printing, achieved by Redouté and his pupils. The plates first appeared accompanying Antoine Poiteau and Pierre Jean François Turpin's edition of Duhamel du Monceau's 'Traité des Arbres fruitiers', published in 72 parts, 1807-1835. After Turpin's death in 1840 Poiteau, who was the sole author of the text, took control of the plates and removed Turpin's name from them. He also arranged text and plates according to the group of fruit, whereas the 1807-1835 edition was without systematic arrangement./"Von A. Poiteau wurde die neue Auflage dieses pomologischen Werkes bearbeitet mit dem Titel 'Pomologie Française', Paris 1836-1846, der eine sehr beachtenswerte Einleitung vorangeht" (S. Martini, Geschichte der Pomologie in Europa p. 92). "This work is a re-issue, with greatly modified text, of the 1807-35 edition of Duhamel du Monceau's 'Traité des arbres fruitiers'" (RHS Lindley Library)./The first volume is devoted to almonds, peaches, apricots, and plums; the second to citrus fruit, grapes, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, etc; the third to gooseberries, currants and pears (over 100 varieties); and the fourth to apples, hazelnuts, walnuts, figs, and even an avocado. Poiteau and Turpin were both outstanding botanical artists in the 'Redouté' style, and utilised the techniques of colour-printing Redouté had devised. The 'Pomologie française' was published by Langlois, the great master of colour printing who supervised much of Redouté's best work. A team of over twenty engravers worked on the plates.//Nissen BBI, 551; Great Flower Books p. 55; Stafleu & Cowan 1548; Raphael, An Oak Spring Pomona n. 31.
