        Poems, by Acton Bell, Currer Bell and Ellis Bell

      London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1846 [1848] First edition, second issue as usual. Publisher's green cloth, decorated in blind, lettered in gilt, pale yellow endpapers, cancel title page. Very good, spine recased with the original cloth laid on, a few spots of soiling to the boards, light toning to the spine, corners lightly bumped, spine slightly starting inside the front cover, residue from a removed bookplate to the front pastedown, embossed ownership stamp to the front free endpaper, advertisement leaf present, errata leaf lacking, binder's ticket to the rear pastedown. Overall, an attractive copy. Smith 1. Poems was first published in May 1846 by Aylott and Jones in an edition of 1,000 copies. Because it was an initially unsuccessful publication, Smith notes that "only a few copies were sold and otherwise distributed, and the remainder of the unwanted edition was put into storage." Smith and Elder purchased the remaining 961 copies after Charlotte Brontë achieved success with her 1847 novel Jane Eyre. Using the original Aylott and Jones sheets, this second issue of the first edition was published in September 1848. Published under their male pseudonyms in order that their novels might be evaluated on the quality of the writing rather than gender of the writer, Poems is the Brontë sisters' first book. It includes twenty-one poems by Anne, nineteen poems by Charlotte, and twenty-one poems by Emily. Although all three sisters are best known for their prose writing, Emily Brontë's poetry is considered the best work in this slim volume.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Pictures from Italy.

      London: for the author by Bradbury & Evans,, 1846. With Vignette Illustrations on Wood, by Samuel Palmer. Octavo (172 x 106 mm). Original blue fine-diaper cloth, gilt-lettered spine, covers and spine decoratively blocked in blind, pale yellow coated endpapers. Wood-engraved title page vignette and three other vignettes by Samuel Palmer. Gift inscription dated 1846 to front free endpaper. Extremities very lightly bumped, spine darkened, and with a few small nicks at headcaps, cockling to cloth on rear board, free endpapers creased, contents toned, still a very good copy in the bright original cloth. First edition of Dickens's second travel book. Dickens toured Italy between 1844 and 1845. "Clarkson Stanfield had agreed to illustrate the text for Dickens but, when he read those passages of the narrative in which Dickens satirises the excesses of Catholic devotion, he resigned from the project. Stanfield was himself a prominent English Catholic, after all, as Dickens knew, and he could scarcely be connected with a publication which treats his Church's ritual as little more than a parade of mummers ? As usual, [Dickens] went at once into action in order to find a substitute; fortunately and curiously, he chose a young artist who then had no real reputation, Samuel Palmer, whose wonderful illustrations are not the least of the merits of Pictures from Italy in its final state" (Peter Ackroyd, Dickens, 1990, pp. 491-92). The "young" Palmer was, in fact, forty-one at the time and had travelled to Italy with his wife in late 1837.

        Omukaibune ningyo zue [trans.: Illustrations of Dolls for the Tenjin Festival]

      1846. First two openings with double-page colored woodcut borders, three double-page woodcuts, & 28 full-page woodcuts. 33 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. patterned wrappers (spine perished). Osaka: Naraya Matsubei, 1846.First edition. The Tenjin Festival, dating back to 951, is one of the three largest festivals in Japan (the others are the Sanno Festival in Tokyo and the Gion Festival in Kyoto). It takes place in late July and is dedicated to Michizane Sugawara, who was deified as a god of learning. It was the custom in the 17th century for residents of each district of the city to make beautiful dolls based on the main characters of classical Japanese theater, each of which was about 2.4 meters tall. These dolls would be placed in front of the residents' houses to welcome the spirits of the gods. In the 19th century, about 50 dolls existed, but today only about 15 of the old dolls survive, many of which are annually displayed in the Tenmangu Shrine during the festival.This book is the best record of these dolls, many of which no longer exist. 43 dolls are depicted here in the fine woodcuts, of which 28 are portrayed in full-page woodcuts with accompanying text giving information on the district and artist where each doll was made, the symbolism and meaning of each doll, extremely detailed explanations of the clothes and ornaments which the dolls are wearing, etc.Matsukawa (1818-82), was a prolific book illustrator of the period.There is some worming touching text and image, carefully repaired, but a very good copy.

        Synopsis of a grammar of the Karen language, embracing both dialects, Sgau and Pgho, or Sho

      Tavoy: [printed and published at the] Karen Mission Press [by C. Bennett. for the American Baptist Mission], 1846. First edition, 4to, pp. viii, 458; old pebble-grain brown cloth neatly rebacked in brown calf, gilt-lettered spine; near fine, and sound. American missionaries first arrived among the Karen tribes in 1828. It was apparently impracticable for them to set up a printing-press in the wild country of the Shan states, but they did so several hundred miles farther south, at Tavoy, in the Tenasserim province. The Karen are were one of the chief tribes of Burma, supposed to be descendants of Chinese tribes driven southwards, ultimately from Mongolian lands. The Karen language is tonal, and belongs to the Siamese-Chinese branch of the Indo-Chinese family. The first book of the press appears to be Jonathan Wade's unfinished Karen dictionary (Tavoy ca. 1842-44). In 1843 Francis Mason published a New Testament printed at the same press, and in 1846 the Rev. Cephas Bennett published there An Anglo-Karen Vocabulary, the same year as this Karen grammar by Mason. Not in Vancil; Aston Catlogue, p. 129.

On the map the geographical distribution of the plant is shown from Bolivia up to Venezuela.In very good condition, text somewhat foxed, not affecting the plates. Attractive copy of an interesting and well illustrated work on the Peruvian bark used for making quinine.

        A Poet's Bazaar. From the Danish . by Charles Beckwith, Esq.

      - London, Bentley 1846. Three volumes publisher's red cloth decorated in blind (the first volume rebacked with the original pine preserved); frontispiece portrait. Some minor flaws and signs of use (a corner torn from one leaf well away from the text is the worst I can see); a pretty good set from the Andersen collection of biographer and buff Eiler Hoeg with appropriate bookplates. First English edition. Travels south and east through Europe to Greece and Constantinople. 1846 was Andersen's breakthrough year in England; three translations of his tales and this appeared. He was deeply unhappy with Mary Howitt, the first into print, but apparently tolerant enough of the rest. Howitt translated from German which is probably why this specifies that Beckwith (Beckwith Lohmeyer in full, an English resident of Copengagen who taught Andersen English) worked from the original.

      London. 1846–9 - Suscribers edition size: 350 x 255 mm. Very good condition. Tinted lithograh (two tints). Original hand colouring. Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo and three full sketchbooks, enough material to "serve me for the rest of my life" (Roberts, Eastern Journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade he made "a series of entire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape and people of the Near East.

        Pièce d'anatomie chirurgicale en cuir repoussé

      3 et (1) pages Paris, Imprimerie Jules-Juteaux, [1846], in-4, 3 et (1) pages, , Très rare fascicule publicitaire faisant la promotion et proposant à la vente les modèles d'anatomie artificielle réalisés par les docteurs Carteaux et Chaillou. Ceux-ci présentèrent à l'Académie de Médecine en 1844 leurs premiers modèles d'anatomie en cuir repoussé. Leurs réalisations eurent un très bon accueil, ainsi les deux médecins décidèrent de les proposer à la vente. Leur méthode consiste en deux étapes distinctes : le moulage sur nature via l'utilisant d'une gélatine dont le creux sert à la formation d'une image en plâtre, puis l'utilisation d'une peau de mouton plongée au fond de la matrice en gélatine afin d'en obtenir la forme originale mais en relief. La présente plaquette fait suivre deux avis positifs sur ces modèles en cuir (d'Auguste Béard et du docteur Herpin), puis les auteurs énumèrent leur dix modèles anatomiques et en donnent les prix et les moyens de se les faire livrer. L'année suivante, en 1847, les auteurs publièrent un "Catalogue raisonné" de leurs pièces d'anatomie chirurgicale. Bon exemplaire.

        "Insensibility during Surgical Operations produced by Inhalation"

      [in:] The Boston Medical and Surgical Journal. Edited by J.V.C. Smith. Vol. XXXV, No. 16, 309-317 & 379-82 pp. One text illus. 544 pp. 8vo, modern half-calf & marbled boards. Boston: 18 November, 1846. First edition, the formal announcement of the discovery of surgical anesthesia. Morton was unwilling to disclose any details of ether, his new anesthetic agent, until he could obtain a patent. However, Bigelow convinced him to change his mind early in Nov. 1846 when an amputation was performed. Bigelow then wrote an account of several operations, with remarks on the history, chemistry and physiology of ether, which was published in The Boston Medical and Surgical Journal. In no. 18 for December 2nd, J.F. Flagg published some remarks on Bigelow's paper, to which Bigelow replied in no. 19 for December 9th (pp. 379-82). The issues after no. 16 also contain other material on the new anesthesia, including comments by J.C. Warren, who performed the first operation when anesthesia was used by Morton. The effect of Bigelow's article was dramatic, and news of the operations under ether spread quickly. This issue contains 16 other studies on individual surgical anesthetics and early references to the patent claim by Bigelow, Dana, Cox, Ellsworth, Flagg, Kimball, Mansfield, Parkman, Peirson, Smilie, Wallace, and J.C. Warren, along with seven editorials on the subject. Nice copy. ? Fulton & Stanton IV.1, VII.4, 10, 18, 25, 29, 50, 54, 63, 68, 69, 92, 108, 119, 120, 122, 151, 157. Garrison-Morton 5651.

They propose "to exhibit the writings of Washington in a manner, that will render strict justice to the imperishable name of their author, and contribute the greatest advantage to his countrymen, both at the present time and in future ages" (Introduction, Volume 2). The engraved plates include facsimiles of Washington's handwriting, contemporary maps, battle plans, and medal designs. The engraver, George Washington Boynton, was a Boston based cartographer and map engraver active in the first half of the nineteenth century. Boynton engraved maps for numerous publishers; his most significant work was his contributions to Bradford's National Atlas. This set belonged, in the mid-nineteenth century, to Captain Cuthbert H. Slocomb (1832-1873), a popular Civil War Confederate Officer and leader of The Fifth Company, Washington Artillery. His company were assigned to the Confederate Army of Tennessee and engaged in several major battles throughout the war. Volume 1 is inscribed on the half-title to the then-17 year old Slocomb from his mother, Cora Ann Slocomb, and dated 1 January 1849. Each subsequent volume is inscribed on the title page "C. H. Slocomb" in the same hand. The imprints vary; Vol. I is dated 1837, Vols. II-VI are dated 1834, Vols. VII-IX are dated 1835, Vols. X-XI are dated 1836, and Vol. XII is dated 1837.

        Observations astronomiques faites à l'Observatoire de Paris publiées par le Bureau des longitudes [années 1837-1846]

      10 volumes Paris, Bachelier, 1846, in-folio, 10 volumes, toile verte de l'éditeur, titres dorés sur les plats supérieurs, ÉDITION ORIGINALE. Tout ce qui a paru de ces Observations rendues sous forme de tableaux non commentés : comptes-rendus annuels des observations faites à l'Observatoire de Paris entre 1837 et 1846, à la lunette méridienne de Gambey, fournie en 1826, et au Cercle mural, construit par Fortin et installé en 1816. - 1837.

[4]-118 pp, [1] ff. blanc, [4]-27 pp. Chaque volume est daté de l'année où les observations ont été effectuées, mais leur publication fut différée "dans l'espoir que l'on pourrait la faire précéder d'une description complète de l'Observatoire de Paris" (voir l'Avertissement de 4 pages qui figure en tête de chaque volume). Les observations sont signées du nom de l'astronome qui les a réalisées : Laugier, Eugène Bouvard, Victor Mauvais, Goujon, Faye, Yvon Villarceau et Butillon. Cette nouvelle série, d'une extrême rareté, fait suite aux Observations astronomiques, faites à l'Observatoire Royal de Paris, publiées par Alexis Bouvard en 1825 et 1838, et qui rend compte des observations effectuée de 1810 à 1828 (Paris, Bachelier, 2 vol. in-folio). Elle fut publiée alors qu'Arago, nommé directeur des observations le 9 avril 1834 par le Bureau des longitudes, remplissait les fonctions de directeur de l'Observatoire. Arago avait fait procéder à la réfection de la salle des instruments méridiens : ainsi doté de tous les instruments de première nécessité, installés de manière satisfaisante, l'Observatoire attira une "pléiade de jeunes observateurs", parmi lesquels les astronomes cités ci-dessous, qui se mit à l'oeuvre et accumula les nombreuses informations ici rendues. "L'utilité de ces observations eût été encore bien plus grande, si on les avait publiées d'une manière suivie et sous une forme qui les eût rendues accessibles ; mais l'on se contenta longtemps de n'imprimer que les résultats immédiats de l'observation, sans aucune réduction ni discussion". Radau, "L'observatoire de Paris depuis sa fondation", Revue des Deux Mondes T.73, 1868. Bibliographie de la France 1851, n° 4061.

        Mother Goose of the Old Nursery Rhymes

      48 pages, frontispice, titre London & New York, Frederick Warne and Co, [s.d.], fin XIXe, in-12, 48 pages, frontispice, titre frontispice, 1 planche, percaline d'éditeur, Ouvrage illustré par Kate Greenaway (1846-1901), écrivain et illustratrice anglaise de livres pour enfants. Membre de la Royal Academy of Art, on remarque une influence préraphaélite dans ses dessins, au caractère champêtre. Ses illustrations d'enfants habillés façon "Regency", ont remis au goût du jour cette mode dans la société victorienne. Depuis 1955, au Royaume-Uni, une médaille Kate Greenaway récompense tous les ans un illustrateur de livres pour enfants. Illustrations qui représentent d'agréables petites scénettes enfantines, accompagnées d'anciennes comptines anglaises. Pour reprendre le titre de ce petit recueil, "Mother Goose" ("Mère-oie") fait référence à une figure imaginaire souvent représentée comme une vieille dame de la campagne dans les illustrations du XXe siècle. Gardienne des récits oraux et populaires, elle raconte des contes féériques et des comptines pour enfants. Figure de l'imaginaire collectif, elle apparaît en Angleterre et en France au XVIIème siècle. Ces pièces enfantines sont traditionnellement publiées sous le nom de "Mother Goose Rhymes". La figure et les récits de la "Mother Goose" rappelle les "Contes de ma mère l'Oye" de Charles Perrault. Gravé et peint en couleurs par Edmund Evans. Reluire abîmée.

        Synopsis of a grammar of the Karen language, embracing both dialects, Sgau and Pgho, or Sho

      [printed and published at the] Karen Mission Press [by C. Bennett. for the American Baptist Mission], Tavoy 1846 - First edition, 4to, pp. viii, 458; old pebble-grain brown cloth neatly rebacked in brown calf, gilt-lettered spine; near fine, and sound. American missionaries first arrived among the Karen tribes in 1828. It was apparently impracticable for them to set up a printing-press in the wild country of the Shan states, but they did so several hundred miles farther south, at Tavoy, in the Tenasserim province. The Karen are were one of the chief tribes of Burma, supposed to be descendants of Chinese tribes driven southwards, ultimately from Mongolian lands. The Karen language is tonal, and belongs to the Siamese-Chinese branch of the Indo-Chinese family. The first book of the press appears to be Jonathan Wade's unfinished Karen dictionary (Tavoy ca. 1842-44). In 1843 Francis Mason published a New Testament printed at the same press, and in 1846 the Rev. Cephas Bennett published there An Anglo-Karen Vocabulary, the same year as this Karen grammar by Mason.

Ved siden af sin virksomhed på Holmen udfoldede han en stor litterær virksomhed, hvori han nedlagde frugten af sit virksomme livs mange erfaringer.

      (circa1846). 12 folded leaves (two detached), some light soiling, creasing at corners, a little insect damaged in a few places causing the loss of a few characters. 24 x 17cm. This manuscript copy of a Japanese letter discusses the arrival at Uraga of the two American ships led by James Biddle and the Danish ship Galathea.James Biddle preceeded Commodore Perry's arrival in Japan by seven years. His mission being to open trade between Japan and the United States. Just as Perry was to do years later, the American ships anchored off Uraga at the entrance to Edo Bay, but due to misunderstandings and the Japanese authorities very decided lack of interest in trading with the United States, his mission was not successful. The Danish ship, Galathea was on a two year voyage around the world (1845 - 1847) engaging in scientific research, working on political goals such as the sale of the Danish colonies in India to the East India Company and searching for new trading opportunities. Her visit to Uraga was also unwelcome and she left for the United States. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 157033)....

        Mosque of the Sultan Hassan, from the Great Square of the Rumeyleh

      1846 - ROBERTS, David. Original lithograph plate, Mosque of the Sultan Hassan, from the Great Square of the Rumeyleh. [London: F.G. Moon, 1846]. Hand-colored lithograph on onionskin, measuring 12-7/8 by 19 inches, on original mount, measuring 16-3/8 by 23-3/4 inches. $2500.Beautiful original hand-colored lithograph of the Mosque of Sultan Hassan with a large group of colorfully costumed natives in the foreground, from the superb large format first issue of Roberts’ 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 Egypt [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). "Haghe’s skillful and delicate lithography, and his faithful interpretation of Roberts’ draughtsmanship and dramatic sense, combine in what are undoubtedly remarkable examples of lithographic works. Particularly in the Egypt and Nubia section, one feels that the colossal subjects and broad vistas were ideally suited to Roberts’ talent" (Abbey, 341). Slight chipping (one tear) and soiling to mount. Print in fine condition. Exceptional hand-colored lithograph from the most famous and desirable work on Egypt.
