        The Adventures of Oliver Twist; Or, The Parish Boy's Progress.

      London: Bradbury and Evans, 1846. FIRST EDITION in one volume, also the first octavo edition. Octavo, pp.. With 24 steel engravings by Cruikshank (re-touched for this edition by Findlay). Bound c.1900 by Zaehnsdorf in mid-blue full morocco, gilt, with marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, original cloth bound in at rear. Bookplate to pastedown, internally clean but for some mild toning to plates, binding fine with some gentle sunning to spine. A lovely fine copy of this important edition. Dickens' classic second novel, published one year after 'The Pickwick Papers', which publicised various hypocrisies and contemporary social evils, including the workhouse, child labour and the recruitment of children as criminals. Filled to the brim with the archetypal circus of Dickensian excesses; vicious thieves, ladies of negotiable virtue with hearts of gold, plucky urchins, cringeworthy Jewish gentlemen and undoubtedly a jolly fat person somewhere. Beautifully written, and beneath the pantomime, probably not such an inaccurate depiction of social realities in the age of empire. Gimbel Collection [A38], Grolier Club Catalogue [72].

        MARKEDSSCENER I Broget Rad, em Billedbog for Born, med Text.

      12 pages of verse and 12 full-page superbly detailed lithographed plates by A. Giere; together with a multiple image title-label which, presumably was intended for the front cover when the book was bound up. First Norwegian Edition, based on a German work published in 1840 called, "Der Jahrmarkt. Spine splitting; contents loose; else a very good copy contained in a modern half morocco folding case. An extremely scarce work seemingly unknown to Toole Stott, as he fails to mention either the Norwegian or the German edition. The plates include scenes of a tented panorama and a peepshow; a juggler; and a magician. The first Norwegian primer for children was not published until 1798, and the first children's book considered a classic was Moe's In the Well and in the Pond published in 1851. Markedsscener, published in 1846, is considered to be the first picture book for children published in Norway.

        Lettres à Son Altesse Royale le Duc regnant de Saxe-Coburg et Gotha sur la théorie des probabilités, appliquée aux science morales et politiques

      Brussels: M. Haney, 1846 First edition. Original printed wrappers. Affixed to the bottom portion of the front wrappers is a printed slip for the Paris publisher, Jules Renouard, who apparently acquired part of the edition. . Large octavo. Wrappers partially browned, spine split in several places, but a very good copy, in its original state, in a full morocco clamshell slipcase. Quetelet (1796-1874) was a Belgian astronomer, mathematician, statistician and sociologist. He founded and directed the Brussels Observatory. He became interested in the Ë™young science of probability and statistics as an astronomer to explain measurement errors, but became one of the first to see its applications to the social sciences. He understood the complexities of social phenomena and became interested in using what he called "social physics" as a tool to explain crime rates, marital rates, suicide rates, etc. In 1835, he published Sur l'homme et le développement des ses faculties, essai d'une physique sociale, which made him famous throughout Europe. These letters to the Grand Duke of Saxe Coburg and Gotha are an important sequel to that work. Cajori calls them "Quetelet's best researches on the application of probability to the physical and social sciences" and notes: "He laid emphasis on the 'law of large numbers,' which was advanced also by the Frenchman S.D. Poisson and discussed by the German W. Lexis (1877), the Scandinavians H. Westergaard and Carl Charlier, and the Russian Pafnuti Liwowich Chebichev (1821-1894) of the University of Petrograd." Quetelet's work was enormously influential to Francis Galton, who expanded upon it in Hereditary Genius.

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 director of the Paris Observatory from 1854 to 1870, when he was driven out by the staff because of his management style; he was re - appointed in 1873 after the new director, Delaunay, drowned.

        Flussaue bei Pähl

      - Technik: Bleistift und Weißhöhung auf Papier. Beschriftung: unten links signiert: "C. Ebert", unten rechts bezeichnet: "bei Pähl". Grösse: 7,9 x 11,6 cm (Darstellung). Zustand: Insgesamt sehr guter Zustand, mit kleinen Flecken am Rand, die den Bildeindruck aber nicht stören. Beschreibung: Nach dem Studium an der klassisch geprägten Kunstakademie in Stuttgart übersiedelt Ebert 1846 nach München, um sich dort dem Kreis der Landschaftsmaler um Eduard Schleich anzuschließen. 1851 reist er zusammen mit Schleich und seinem Künstlerfreund Carl Spitzweg nach Paris. Der Aufenthalt dort und die Begegnung mit der Künstlergruppe von Barbizon sollte seine Sicht der Landschafts-malerei grundlegend verändern. Schleichs Malerei war von seinen großen Lehrern und Vorbildern Christian Morgenstern und Carl Rottmann geprägt, deren idealisierende Interpretation der Natur stark von der Romantik beeinflusst wurde. Seine Landschaften scheinen zum Teil unter den stimmungsvollen Lichtverhältnissen und den zurechtgeschnittenen Naturkomponenten zu erstarren. In seiner kleinen Skizze befreit sich Ebert vollkommen von dieser Auffassung der Landschaft. Er entdeckt den Reiz des unscheinbaren Motivs und baut zu ihm eine fast intime Beziehung auf. Es ist eine Landschaft bei Pähl zwischen dem Ammersee und dem Starnberger See, ein häufiges Ausflugsziel der Münchner Künstler. Es könnte aber überall sein, Ebert gibt hier keine gestalterische Definition des Ortes. Die Linien sind frei, dem Licht wird kein fester Platz zugewiesen. Die Natur ist in Bewegung, sie lebt. Es ist sein Loblied auf die Freilichtmalerei, die das klassische System der Akademieausbildung bald revolutionieren wird. Es handelt sich um einen Gesamtpreis inkl. Versandkosten innerhalb der BRD. Umsatzsteuer wird wegen Differenzbesteuerung nach §25a UstG weder erhoben noch ausgewiesen. Zustand: Insgesamt sehr guter Zustand, mit kleinen Flecken am Rand, die den Bildeindruck aber nicht stören.

        Veduta di Napoli. Milano, senza data (1845 ca.)

      1846. Acquatinta (mm 380x730) rialzata con ricca e bella coloritura coeva a gouache e biacca; bella cornice d'epoca in legno dorato con ricca decorazione a palmette e a fregi vegetali. Ampia bordura grigio scuro stesa, secondo il gusto del tempo, sui margini; titolo calligrafato a tempera rossa in lettere capitali al margine inferiore. L'opera, raffigurante una panoramica veduta di Napoli, è un raffinato esempio di stampa gouachée, apprezzabile per l'ampio taglio orizzontale di grande effetto scenografico. Il disegno preparatorio della tavola spetta a Carlo Bossoli, uno dei più ricercati vedutisti romantici, di origini svizzere, lungamente attivo a Torino, Roma e Napoli. Bossoli visitò per la prima volta la città partenopea tra 1839 e 1840, e qui conobbe la pittura tipica delle "gouaches" e, come riporta il fratello Edoardo nella biografia, "la adottò, la portò a un alto grado di perfezione facendone un genere originale, una specie di creazione sua". La veduta, colta da una posizione elevata, raffigura il centro monumentale della città, dominato dal Palazzo Reale e da Piazza del Plebiscito; sullo sfondo sono raffigurati il mare e il Vesuvio, con l'immancabile pennacchio di fumo; un particolare di grande vivacità è il gruppo di popolani che danza la tarantella su una terrazza, in primo piano a sinistra. Esemplare in ottimo stato.

Proux et Cie), 1846. 8vo. With a large folding map (40 x 52.5 cm) depicting what the United States called Oregon Country, dated 1846 and partly coloured in outline. Modern maroon half morocco.

      Eberstadt 134:563; Howes F70; Sabin 24000; not in the Graff Collection. First and only separately published edition of a detailed account of the geography, history and especially diplomacy of the northwest American region that the United States called Oregon Country, written and published during the negotiations to divide the region between Great Britain and the United States. The British called it the Columbia District. The folding map shows the "ligne proposé par les Etats-Unis" at the 49th parallel, which was the final dividing line in the 1846 treaty except that the whole of Vancouver Island went to Great Britain. In 1848 the United States part officially became the Oregon territory and was later the States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and parts of two others, while the British part became the southern part of what is now British Columbia in Canada. The map has some irregular folds and several tears, some repaired, but all are marginal. The book is otherwise in very good condition.

      Cassel, Theodor Fischer/ Stuttgart, Schweizerbart, (1846-) 1851-1894. Volumes 1-40. With 1743, mostly lithographed plates of which some tinted, 2 maps. Contemporary half calf, spines with green gilt lettered label, marbled sides. A very rare, almost complete, early run of this most important paleontological periodical. Volume 2 lacks 6 plates and volume 30 does not contain the monographs published between 1898 and 1906, as the library stopped subscribing after 1894. This beautifully produced periodical containing numerous monographs on fossil shells was edited by the leading 19th century German paleontologists Herm. von Meyer, Wilh. Dunker and K.A. Zittel. All famous German paleontologists of the second half of the 19th century contributed, by publishing larger or smaller monographs in the Palaeontographica. "Ein Hauptverdienst Dunkers war es, mit H. v. Meyer zusammen in 1846 die Palaeontographica begründet zu haben, das die deskriptiven Grundlagen der Paläontologie schuf. Dunker gab mit Meyer 18 dieser Bände heraus, anschliessend noch 6 Bände mit K.A. von Zittel. Besonderer Wert erhalten die zahlreichen paläontologischen Veröffentlichungen durch seine selbstgefertigten, vorzüglichen lithographischen Tafeln" (NDB IV, 199)./Added to the present set are some volumes of the 'Palaeontographica Supplementbände' (supplement volumes) /Supplement volumes to Palaeontographica were published on individual topics.

        Collection of Photographs of Bay Area Street Cars 1909-1941

      Very Good. 220 mounted black and white photographs documenting many of the street car lines of the Bay Area. Majority of photos are 5 x 8 inches with a couple smaller. Many of the photos have location written in pencil on back in addition to the stamp of Tom Gray of Burlingame, CA. This may be Thomas Gray (March 22, 1846, Toronto, Canada - January 16, 1935, Burlingame, California) who worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad in San Francisco, California from 1876 to 1916. According to Southern Pacific, Gray, and Gray's children, he invented the widely-used "Stop, Look & Listen" crossing sign in 1884. The later dated photos do not have his stamp on back. Most of the photos are dated from 1909 to 1941 with a couple outliers as late as 1970. In addition to well composed photos, each photo has a label caption adjacent citing location and date, which is usually duplicated on back. A number of header sheets indicate line numbers and give a brief history of that particular line. Among other lines are the Ninth (Polk & Larkin Streets) , Ellis and O'Farrell, San Bruno Avenue Route, Guerrero Street San Jose Avenue Cemetaries, and Fillmore and Valencia. Because each photo has a specific location identified, this collection will also be valuable for the background visible in each shot. All photos are mounted on two-punch photo sheets measuring 11 3/4 x 13 3/4 inches, only on one side and are all loose. Overall, in very good condition with small chips or tears to several sheets, while photos are in fine condition. All pages numbered in pencil, completing what seem to be three albums containing 220 photos with three missing. A wonderful record of Bay area Street cars for the historian or rail buff. Scans upon request. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall .

        'There was an old person of Dover.'

      An original pen & ink drawing by Edward Lear, taken from 'A Book of Nonsense,' first published in 1846. This drawing has been examined and fully authenticated as Lear's work by the late Vivien Noakes, the world expert on Edward Lear. The drawing accompanies the limerick, 'There was an old person of Dover.' It is drawn on silk, or possibly fine rag paper, and then laid on paper for support. It was drawn, almost certainly for presentation to friends, and would originally have been part of a group of drawings bound in book form, probably at the time of its making in the early 1860's. There is some staining and browning, but otherwise the drawing is in excellent condition. The drawing is mounted on acid free card and is supplied with a copy of the letter of authentication from Vivien Noakes. Mount sixe: 24.7 x 30.5 cm.Original 'Nonsense' drawings by Lear are exceedingly rare.This item is subject to VAT at the rate of 20%.

        Mexico & Guatemala:

      S. Augustus Mitchell. Philadelphia. Copyright 1846. - Handcolored map, lithograph, 12 x 15 inches including decorative border on sheet 13 3/4 x 17 1/4 inches. Toning and light soiling to margins, archivally repaired tear entering the decorative border at centre of upper edge, pinholes in three corners, occasional light soiling in image. Good condition. A fascinating map of the "American West" before it was: the map, published at the start of the Mexican-American War, shows Mexico extending south of the Oregon Territory and east to the Rocky Mountains and Rio Grande, including the huge Mexican state "Upper or New California." It is from the 1846 edition of Mitchell's New Universal Atlas (with a plate number of 36 outside the neat line). The copyright line at lower centre reads: "Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1846 by H.N. Burroughs, in the Clerk's Office of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania." There is an inset map "Valley of Mexico" at lower left and of Guatemala at upper right. A fascinating snapshot of the Western United States just prior to the California Gold Rush and the annexation of California.

        Recherches sur le mouvements d'Uranus

      Paris: Bachelier, 1846. 1st Edition. Softcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. In: Comptes Rendus Hebdomadaires des Séances de l'Académie des Sciences, Vol. XXII, no. 22, June 1846, pp. 907-918. Paris: Bachelier, 1846. 4to (283 x 226 mm). Entire volume 22 (Jan. - June 1846), [4], 1208 pp., including half- and general title-page. Contemporary plain paper wrapper with printed paper label to spine, pages untrimmed and unopened. Very little marginal browning and occasional minor spotting to text, faint dampstaining to blank margin of few leaves. A fine, unsophisticated copy.----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. "In 1846, John Couch Adams, an English astronomer, and Urban J. J. Leverrier, a French astronomer, simultaneously and independently determined the location of a possible new planet. Adams put Newton's theory of attraction to a test by studying the causes of the irregularities in the motion of the planet Uranus. In 1845, he wrote of his findings of the mathematical location of the new planet to Sir George Biddell Airy, Astronomer Royal. Because Adams was unknown, his letter was put aside. Meanwhile these same perturbations of Uranus had become of interest to Leverrier. On July 1, 1846, he presented a paper Recherches sur les movement d'Uranus (1846) to the Académie des Sciences in Paris... When Airy realized that Leverrier and Adams had reached the same conclusions, he hastened to suggest that a search be made for the new planet. Shortly thereafter it was seen but not recognized. About a week before it was found in England, it was discovered by Galle in Berlin on information supplied by Leverrier. Thus, the honor of priority of discovery, or even co-discovery of the new Planet, Neptune, was lost to Adams and credited to Leverrier. Adam's paper On the perturbations of Uranus was read before the Royal Astronomical Society, November 13, 1846, and was published in 1847" (Sparrow, p.40). Near fine.

        MARKEDSCENER I Broget Rad, em Billedbog for Born, med Text.

      12 pages of verse and 12 full-page superbly detailed lithographed plates by A. Giere; together with a multiple image title-label which, presumably was intended for the front cover when the book was bound up. First Norwegian Edition, based on a slightly earlier German work. Spine splitting; contents loose; else a very good copy contained in a modern half morocco folding case. An extremely scarce work seemingly unknown to Toole Stott, as he fails to mention either the Norwegian or the German edition.The first Norwegian primer for children was not published until 1798, and the first children's book considered a classic was Moe's In the Well and in the Pond published in 1851. Markedscener, published in 1846, is considered to be the first picture book for children published in Norway.

        A History of British Fossil Mammals, and Birds. FIRST EDITION. Large 8vo.

      John van Voorst. 1846 Half title, folding table, woodcut illus., 4pp cata. (Dec. 1845) in smaller format. A bright clean copy. Uncut in orig. olive-green pebble-grained cloth; spine sl. faded with faint mark to lower edge. A near fine copy.Richard Owen, 1804-1892, was a renowned but controversial English Paleontologist who was compared favourably with the naturalists Georges Cuvier and Friedrich von Humboldt. In his role as Superintendent of the British Museum's Departments of Natural History, Owen was influential in campaigning for the establishment of a dedicated natural history museum, which was eventually opened in South Kensington in 1881. Fiercely ambitious and vicious in temperament, he was alienated from the scientific world, especially after his outspoken criticism of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. This volume was part of a uniform series of works on zoology published by Van Voorst in a large and attractive 8vo format.
