        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. Not in Vancil; Aston Catlogue, p. 129. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      (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.

        Autographed Letter, Signed. Afive page hand-written letter, headed - Downing Street "Confidential", 3rd February 1846from Colonial Secretary Gladstone to Viscount Falkland, Governor of Nova Scotia.

      London.1846. - folio. 32x 20cm, 5p. ribbon tied, in fine condition in clamshell case. (cgc) ".Her Majesty's Government are desirous that the Militia of the whole of Her Majesty's NorthAmerican Provinces be placed on a footing to enable it to render efficient services, ifrequired. It cannot be long before I receive an account of the measures which theLegislature of Nova Scotia shall have adopted with respect to its own Militia; and yourLordship had better apprise Lord Cathcart of the amount of the Force which you can expectto be able to raise. .The general principle applicable to this matter is, that duringPeace each Colony bears the charge of its local force. I am led to suppose that so faras regards Nova Scotia, the clothing would be supplied by the parties forming the MilitiaForce.But arms and accouterments will be sent from this Country, and the cost of themwill not be charged to the Province only. As regards the expense of training, I trust, ofcourse, that you will arrange that they shall be defrayed either locally in the Districts,or from the Provincial Treasury. [signed] W Gladstone". An interesting insight intothe British government's policy on militia and defence of British North America after theRebellions of 1837 and the move towards self-government in the Colonies. Future BritishPrime Minister Gladstone was Colonial Secretary for a short period in 1846 under the Peelgovernment. Viscount Falkland was Governor of Nova Scotia from 1840 to 1846. Resisting thedemand for responsible government and at loggerheads with Joseph Howe, Falkland left NovaScotia under a cloud in 1846. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        An Anglo-Karen vocabulary. Monosyllables...for the use of Karen schools

      Tavoy: Karen Mission Press, 1846. First edition, 12mo, pp. iv, [1], 14-188; contemporary if not original red roan-backed marbled boards; joints and spine rubbed, old Newton Theological Institure label at base of spine, Newton bookplate; all else very good. 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 first book of the press appears to be Jonathan Wade's Karen dictionary (Tavoy ca. 1842-44 - "No title. The work was left unfinished, only 324pp. published - (Quaritch)."). In 1846 the Rev. Cephas Bennett published there An Anglo-Karen Vocabulary. But he was not the first pioneer to set the Karen language down on paper, for we are told that Karen was "never written till Dr. Wade... reduced it to writing using the Burmese consonants. The Karens thus have no written literature" (The Spread of Printing, Eastern Hemisphere, p. 87). According to Francis Mason, who in 1843 published a New Testament printed at the same press by Cephas Bennett, the Wade Karen Dictionary was already printing, and as we can find nor earlier mention of a book printed at the Karen (later Tavoy) Mission Press, we take this to be its first production. But it was unfinished; thus, Bennett's dictionary two years later appears to be the first complete Karen dictionary published, albeit only monosyllabes. 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. Not in Vancil or Zaunmuller.

Antebellum Sporting Rarity. William Elliott (1788-3 Feb. 1863) was a third-generation South Carolina planter, writer, and sportsman. He served in the state senate for nearly two decades, and was respected as one of the most gifted planters of the old South producing large crops of rice and sea island cotton. He wrote frequently on agricultural and outdoor topics in newspapers and in the American Turf Register and Sporting Magazine. The sporting sketches were collected and published as Carolina Sports by Land and Water, Including Incidents of Devil Fishing, Etc. (1846). "The charm of these tales lies in the animation and gusto with which Elliott communicates his experiences. ... Theodore Roosevelt, who became fascinated with harpooning the devilfish in later years, paid tribute to Elliott's book: "Killing devil-fish with the harpoon and lance had always appealed to me as a fascinating sport, since as a boy I had read Elliott's account of it in his 'Field Sports of South Carolina'"(ANB).A landmark of American sporting literature and an uncommon antebellum Charleston imprint.

        Der deutsche Tribun. Erstes Heft. Nachzudrucken!

      Ohne Ort, Verlag und Jahr, (wohl Herisau, Literarisches Institut Mich. Schläpfer, 1846). 11,5 x 6,5 cm. 95 Seiten. Broschierter Umschlag der Zeit. *Stammhammer I, S. 103. Einzige Ausgabe, Rarissimum des deutschen Vormärz. - \"Der deutsche Tribun\" war der kurzlebige Versuch des radikaldemokratischen Kämpfers Heinzen einer monatlich erscheinenden kritischen Zeitschrift, sie sollte \" ... ein Begleiter der deutschen Tagespolitik zu werden, er gedenkt sie als Herold zügelloser Wahrheit so lang zu begleiten, bis er durch wirkliche Preßfreiheit [...] überflüssig geworden ist\" (Heinzen im Prolog). - Außerordentlich selten, das KVK verzeichnet weltweit nur 3 originale Exemplare (UB Köln, Amsterdam und Univ. Madison US), selbst die Bay. Staatsbibl. hat nur eine Kopie. Die UB Madison nennt noch ein zweites Heft, das in Mühlhausen erschienen sein soll, aber ansonsten unbekannt ist. - Der radikale Publizist K. Heinzen (1809-1880) musste 1844 aufgrund seiner kritischen Schrift \"Die Preußische Bürokratie\" aus Deutschland über Belgien in die Schweiz fliehen. Nach seiner Ausweisung emigrierte er 1847 in die USA, wo er mit Ausnahme einer kurzen Rückkehr nach Deutschland während der Februarrevolution von 1848 bis zu seinem Tod lebte. Er publizierte von 1841-1848 mehrere Schriften im deutschsprachigen Raum und später von Amerika aus bis 1879 verschiedene demokratisch gesinnte Zeitschriften (vgl. NDB VIII, 452f.). 1847 führte er eine publizistische Auseinandersetzung mit Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels, distanzierte sich aber von den Kommunisten. Heinzen forderte in seinen Schriften \"eine antiklerikale, antiautoritäre, technisch und sozial fortschrittliche Demokratie. Manche der von ihm schwungvoll geschilderten Reformen sind inzwischen verwirklicht\" (NDB). - Die vorliegende Zeitschrift \"Der deutsche Tribun\" (publiziert im Hosentaschenformat und ohne separates Titelblatt) wurde wohl sofort nach Erscheinen beschlagnahmt, es ist die seltenste von Heinzens Schriften. Das vorliegende Exemplar schlummerte (bis dato unberührt) in der Wittelsbacher Bibliothek Schloß Tegernsee. Versand D: 5,00 EUR Vormärz 1848

        Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell.

      London: Aylott and Jones, , 1846. Octavo (166 × 104 mm). Finely bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in early 20th-century green straight-grain morocco, title and decorations to spine gilt with gilt raised bands, gilt rules to covers, marbled endpapers, turn-ins and top edge gilt. With the original green cloth bound in at rear (Parrish binding II). Spine faded, a little rubbing to spine ends and tips, internally fresh. An exceptional copy. First edition, first issue of the Brontë sisters' first publication. Extremely scarce, the first issue is extant in tiny numbers: it was published in an edition of 1,000 copies, but just 39 copies sold. Following the success of Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, the unsold stock of 961 copies was purchased by Smith in September 1848. Hoping to capitalise on the novel's success, they re-issued this collection of verse the following month with a cancel title-page, retaining the original date. Published pseudonymously to forestall possible prejudice against female writers, the slim volume contains 19 poems by Charlotte ("Currer"), and 21 each by Emily ("Ellis") and Anne ("Acton"). Though a commercial failure, its literary merits did not go entirely unrecognized. A reviewer in the Athenaeum wrote that Ellis had "a fine quaint spirit... which may have things to speak which men will be glad to hear" (4 July, 1846).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. O. O., 14. III. 1846.

      1846. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt mit gepr. Schmuckbordüre. Kl.-12mo. Brief des vierzehnjährigen Kronprinzen an seinen Jugendfreund Glassow, geschrieben "Sonnabendfrüh": "Ich habe den Gedanken gefasst daß wir zuweilen Abends zusammenkommen um etwas hübsches zu lesen. Doch überlasse ich es dir gänzlich ob du kommst oder nicht; im Fall du aber kommst, so bring bitte irgend ein Buch mit das dir gefällt, damit wir einige Auswahl haben. Bornemann und Banier habe ich auch eingeladen. Kommst du, so komm bitte um 7 Uhr. Dein treuer Freund / Friedrich Wilhelm / sonst Fritze für gewöhnlich". - Als Friedrich Wilhelm 1888 durch den Tod seines Vaters als Friedrich III. deutscher Kaiser und König von Preußen wurde, war er bereits schwer erkrankt. Er starb nach nur dreimonatiger Regentschaft im Jahr der Thronbesteigung ("99-Tage-Kaiser"); die Thronbesteigung seines Sohnes Wilhelm II. (1888-1918) machte das Jahr 1888 zum "Dreikaiserjahr".

      1846 - ROBERTS, David. Original lithograph, Tombs of the Caliphs–Cairo. Mosque of Ayed Be[y]. [London: F.G. Moon, 1846]. Hand-colored lithograph on onionskin, measuring 9-1/2 by 13-5/8 inches, on original mount, measuring 16-3/8 by 23-3/4 inches. $4000.Beautiful original hand-colored lithograph of the Mosque of Ayed Bey in Cairo 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). Very 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.
