        Egypt & Nubia, From Drawings Made on the Spot by... with Historical Descriptions by William Brockedon... Lithographed by Louis Haghe

      London: F.G. Moon, 1846-49. First standard edition. Three volumes bound in one. Folio. Contemporary maroon half morocco over cloth boards, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered direct to two panels and decorated to the others, the arms of Jerusalem in gilt to the upper cover, all edges gilt. Three title pages with vignette views and 60 half page illustrations, all tinted lithographs, plus a full page map. The binding rubbed and worn, spotting to the first title page and the succeeding plate, some sporadic spotting thereafter, but the set is cleaner than most examples. Comprising the text leaves of the Roberts' series of views of Egypt and Nubia only. Thus, whilst the full page views are sadly lacking - presumably bound up separately and now lost - the set consists of all of the half page views and the decorative title pages. Considered by Abbey to be the "apotheosis of the tinted lithograph", the work presented the wonderful marriage of Roberts' skilled draughtsmanship, Haghe's sensitive rendering into lithography and the highly developed printing techniques of the firm Day & Son. Moon's remaining stock of the plates were auctioned off on his retirement in 1852 and the lithographic stones, or at least a proportion of them, were destroyed during the course of the sale to demonstrate to bidders that no more prints could be made from them.

        SCARCE EARLY QUEBEC NEW TESTAMENT Le Nouveau Testament de Notre-Seigneur Jesus-Christ. Traduit en Francais avec le Commentaire Litteral.Publiee avec l'Approbation de Monseigneur L'Archeveque de Quebec, a Quebec, MDCCCXLVI [1846]. D & M 3909.

      Chez J-Bte. Frechette, Pere 1846 - This is a unique translation, using the de Sacy as a basis, but with "such numerous changes that except for the first fifteen chapters of Matthew, it is virtually a new translation." It also follows the example of the de Carrièrs translation by adding words to the text in italics. In some cases these are used to support Catholic docrtine; e.g. in Matt. 1:25, after the closing phrase, "à qu il donna le nom de Jésus," (to whom he gave the name Jesus), the following phrase is added: et il ne la connut point depuis, en sorte qu'elle demeura toujours vierge (and he knew her not since, so she remained a virgin.) In other cases the additions are simply for clarification, e.g., in Luke 1:26 after the phrase "Or, au sixième mois ( Now in the sixth month), is added, depuis la conception de Jean-Baptiste (since the conception of John the Baptist). Work on the translation was begun by Father Jean-Jacques Lartigue (1777-1840) circa 1818 in response to Archbishop Plessis' desire to counter the expansion of Protestantism in the area. However, he abandoned the project. The work was taken up in 1842 by Father Charles-François Baillargeon (1798-1870), who later became Archbishop himself. Publication followed in 1846. The translation was successful enough to warrant a second edition in 1865 (D & M 3949). Original covers heavily worn and soundly rebacked with cloth spine. Preliminary blank has family history; torn with loss. Title and other preliminary leaves chipped around extremities. Browning and foxing to interior. Approbation dated 30 mars 1846 by Jos. [Signay], Archbishop of Quebec. xvi; 742 pp. Printed in double columns; Chapters divided by sub-headings. Commentary included in text in italics; extensive annotations in smaller type at bottom of pages. Comes in a new case with marbled boards and leather spine in six panels separated by raised bands with leather gilt-stamped labels. xvi; 742 pp. Table and errata at end. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      S.n, 1846. - S.n, s.l (vers 1846), in - 4 à l'italienne (21,5 x 27 cm)., relié. - Album amicorum composé d'une suite de 48 dessins légendés à l'encre de Paul Gavarni Reliure en plein chagrin  - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Album à l'italienne de 52 dessins originaux à l'encre de Paul Gavarni. Reliure romantique en plein chagrin vert orné d'un motif estampé à froid et frappé des initiales dorées « SC » - pour Sulpice Chevalier, véritable nom de Gavarni - au premier plat et « PD » - Paul Delaroche - au deuxième plat, filet doré intérieur, 50 feuillets dont 12 feuillets sur papier brun, toutes tranches dorées. Rousseurs. Quelques accrocs dans le papier. Quelques restaurations soignées. 48 dessins (14 x 18,7 cm) montés sur feuillets (20,5 x 26 cm), sous serpentes, et 4 dessins exécutés directement sur les feuillets de l'album, parmi lesquels 50 dessins à l'encre noire et à la mine de plomb, deux rehaussés au lavis (un paysage montagneux avec figures et « V'là un nez qu'a coûté cher à mettre en couleur »), et 2 dessins à la pierre noire et au pastel. Titre calligraphié à l'encre noire et rouge « Gavarni », portant également la signature autographe de Paul Gavarni à la pierre noire. - 48 dessins à l'encre noire exécutés pour Le Diable à Paris  : Paris et les Parisiens. Illustrations Les Gens de Paris par Gavarni (Paris, J. Hetzel, 1845 - 1846), dont 46 portant une légende autographe à l'encre noire. - 3 paysages : deux à l'encre noire (dont l'un rehaussé au lavis), le troisième à la pierre noire et au pastel. - 1 portrait de soldat à la pierre noire et au pastel.   Les deux dessins à la pierre noire et au pastel sont des œuvres de jeunesse ; le paysage est à rapprocher d'un Paysage des Pyrénées de Paul Gavarni, conservé au Cabinet des dessins du musée du Louvre (inv. RF 31377) daté de 1827. Paul Gavarni (1804 - 1866), de son vrai nom Guillaume - Sulpice Chevalier, commence à publier des dessins dans la presse au cours des années 1830 et rencontre très rapidement le succès. Il collabore alors à La Mode, à L'Illustration ou à L'Artiste ainsi qu'à La Caricature et au Charivari, deux des journaux satiriques les plus célèbres, qui firent beaucoup pour sa reconnaissance. Bientôt, Gavarni participe à l'illustration d'ouvrages tels que Paris au XIXème siècle (Paris, Beauger, 1839), Les Français peints par eux - mêmes (Paris, Curmer, 1840 - 1842), Le Museum parisien de Louis Huart (Paris, Beauger et Aubert, 1841) ou encore la série des Physiologies. à ces livres qui figurent parmi les illustrés romantiques les plus recherchés, il convient d'ajouter le très beau Diable à Paris, publié en livraisons par Jules Hetzel, maître du genre. Orné de 212 gravures sur bois dont 208 d'après Gavarni (et quatre d'après Bertall) et de 800 vignettes in - texte, Le Diable à Paris réunit des plumes prestigieuses, telles que George Sand, Honoré de Balzac, Stendhal, Théophile Gautier, Charles Nodier ou Gérard de Nerval. Son dessein ? Faire le portrait des Parisiens, de leurs mœurs, de leurs modes, par petites touches, tantôt journalistiques, tantôt littéraires, souvent humoristiques : grisettes, lorettes, bourgeois, comédiens, artistes et petits métiers sont ainsi caricaturés au fil des pages. Et c'est au plus parisien des illustrateurs, Gavarni lui - même, au style à la fois délicat et redoutable, qu'Hetzel charge de croquer avec une ironie très spirituelle les travers de leurs contemporains. Ces dessins accompagnent davantage les textes qu'ils ne les illustrent - l'éditeur ayant laissé à son artiste une totale liberté dans le choix de ses sujets - et sont considérés comme des œuvres très personnelles par le biographe de Gavarni, Paul - André Lemoisne. Quarante - huit des cinquante - et - un dessins réunis dans notre album sont des études pour Le Diable à Paris. D'une grande précision et très enlevés, ils témoignent des différentes étapes du travail de Gavarni : dans un premier temps, celui - ci définit sur papier ses compositions à la mine de plomb et à l'encre, avant de les reporter sur bois au crayon très fin, où elles seront incisées directement par les graveurs. Les quelques variantes entre nos dessins et les gravures portent sur les légendes (huit sont modifiées, deux sont ajoutées) et sur le nombre de figures (dans cinq gravures, une figure supplémentaire a été insérée). Ces études possèdent déjà toutes les qualités du trait incomparable de Gavarni : science du noir et des ombres, expressivité des corps et des visages, soin porté au costume, goût pour la satire sociale et sens aigu de la composition, aussi épurée soit - elle.   L'album provient de la collection personnelle de Paul Delaroche (1797 - 1856), vraisemblablement offert par Gavarni lui - même : en effet, la reliure, dont il serait le commanditaire, porte au premier plat les initiales « SC » (pour « Sulpice », l'un des prénoms de Gavarni, et « Chevalier », son véritable patronyme) et au second plat « PD » (pour « Paul Delaroche »). Delaroche, dont l'œuvre fut salué par Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly, Charles Blanc, Alexandre Dumas ou Théophile Gautier, était alors l'un des peintres d'histoire les plus appréciés et un graveur émérite ; membre de l'Institut et professeur à l'école des Beaux - Arts, il traitait, dans une facture soignée, de sujets romantiques ou anecdotiques qui rencontraient un immense succès. De la relation entre les deux artistes on sait peu de choses, mais Gavarni effectua un portrait du peintre à l'eau - forte, rare exemple dans son œuvre de gravure en taille - douce (Armelhault, Bocher L'œuvre de Gavarni. Lithographies originales et essais d'eau - forte et de procédés nouveaux. Catalogue raisonné, Paris, Librairie des Bibliophiles, 1873, p. 595, n° 3 - sur le même cuivre figure un portrait de Balzac ; une épreuve de cette eau - forte est conservée à New Haven, Yale University Art Gallery, inv. 1955.74.3E). Probablement s'étaient - ils rencontrés dans quelque cénacle, à l'exemple de La Bohème du Doyenné que fréquentait occasionnellement Gavarni. Par ailleurs, un dessin de Gavarni se trouvait dans la collection provenant de la descendance de Delaroche (Vente Couturier Nicolay, Paris, Hôtel Drouot, 27 avril 1994, n° 157). Cet album offert par Gavarni à Delaroche constitue donc un témoignage précieux et émouvant de l'admiration qu'il porte au Maître.   Superbe réunion de dessins originaux de Gavarni pour son chef - d'œuvre Le Diable à Paris - Les Gens de Paris, d'une prestigieuse provenance.   Liste complète des dessins avec leur légende 1.

Early study of the Algerian rebel Abd el-Qadir, the Emir of Mascara (1807-83), published at the height of his insurrection against the French invaders.

      [Dublin]: Royal Irish Academy. First Edition of both original papers.. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. The very scarce original first edition of Mallet's "groundbreaking" discovery.. First Edition of both original papers. [Dublin], Royal Irish Academy, 1846. Quarto. 63 pages with 2 illustrations in the text (wood-engravings) and 3 plates: Plate I - Map of Earthquake Cotidal Lines (coloured) / Plate II - ["Seismic waves" and illustrations of a seaquake] / Plate III - [Seaquake and development of a Tsunami Wave] Modern Softcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. The very scarce original first edition of Mallet's "groundbreaking" discovery. [From "The Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy, Volume XXI, Part I]. Robert Mallet, FRS, MRIA (3 June 1810 ? 5 November 1881), Irish geophysicist, civil engineer, and inventor who distinguished himself in research on earthquakes and is sometimes called the father of seismology. Mallet was born in Dublin, on 3 June 1810, the son of factory owner John Mallet. He was educated at Trinity College, Dublin, entering it at the age of 16 and graduating in science and mathematics in 1830 at the age of 20.Following his graduation, he joined his father's iron foundry business and helped build the firm into one of the most important engineering works in Ireland, supplying ironwork for railway companies, the Fastnet Rock lighthouse, and a swing bridge over the River Shannon at Athlone. He also helped manufacture the characteristic iron railings that surround Trinity College and which bear his family name at the base. Mallet was elected to the Royal Irish Academy in 1832 at the early age of 22. He also enrolled in the British Association for the Advancement of Science in 1835 which helped finance much of his research in seismology. In 1838 he became a life member of the Royal Geological Society of Ireland, and acted as its President from 1846?48. From 1848?1849 he constructed the Fastnet Rock lighthouse, southwest of Cape Clear. On 9 February 1846 he presented to the Royal Irish Academy his paper, "On the Dynamics of Earthquakes", which is considered to be one of the foundations of modern seismology. He is also credited with coining the word "seismology" and other related words e.g. the isoseismal map, which he used in his research. He also coined the term epicentre. From 1852 to 1858, he was engaged (with his son, John William Mallet) in the preparation of his work, The Earthquake Catalogue of the British Association (1858), and carried out blasting experiments to determine the speed of seismic propagation in sand and solid rock. On 16 December 1857, the area around Padula, Italy, was devastated by the Great Neapolitan earthquake which caused 11,000 deaths. At the time it was the third largest known earthquake in the world and has been estimated to have been of magnitude 6.9 on the Richter Scale. Mallet, with letters of support from Charles Lyell and Charles Darwin, petitioned the Royal Society of London and received a grant of £150 to go to Padula and record at first hand the devastation. The resulting report was presented to the Royal Society as the Report on the Great Neapolitan Earthquake of 1857. It was a major scientific work and made great use of the then new research tool of photography to record the devastation caused by the earthquake. In 1862, he published the "Great Neapolitan Earthquake of 1857: The First Principles of Observational Seismology" in two volumes; he brought forward evidence to show that the depth below the Earth's surface, from where the impulse of the Neapolitan earthquake originated, was about 8?9 geographical miles. One of Mallet's papers was Volcanic Energy: an Attempt to develop its True Origin and Cosmical Relations, in which he sought to show that volcanic heat may be attributed to the effects of crushing, contortion and other disturbances in the crust of the earth; the disturbances leading to the formation of lines of fracture, more or less vertical, down which water would find its way, and if the temperature generated be sufficient volcanic eruptions of steam or lava would follow. During the Crimean War he designed a 42 long tons (43 t) mortar of 36 inches (910 mm) calibre capable of throwing a 2,400 pounds (1,100 kg) shell a distance of 1.5 miles (2.4 km). The huge mortar was built in sections to allow transport, but was too late to be used in action. An example has been preserved at the Royal Artillery base in Woolwich and one is displayed before the Royal Armouries Fort Nelson near Portsmouth. Mallet was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1854, and in 1861 moved to London, where he became a consulting engineer and edited The Practical Mechanic's Journal. He was awarded the Telford Medal by the Institution of Civil Engineers in 1859, followed by the Cunningham Medal of the Royal Irish Academy for his research into the theory of earthquakes in 1862 and the Wollaston medal of the Geological Society of London in 1877, the Geological Society's highest award. Blind for the last seven years of his life, he died at Stockwell, London, on 5 November 1881 and is buried at West Norwood Cemetery. (Wikipedia)

        The CRICKET On The HEARTH A Fairy Tale of Home

      London: Printed and Published for the Author by Bradbury & Evans, 1846. 1st edition, with 2nd state of the OT advert (Eckel, p. 119; Smith II, 6). Original publisher's red cloth binding, with gilt stamping to front board & spine. AEG. Pale yellow eps. Bright gilt. Slight lean. Very minor wear. A handsome VG+ copy.. [8], 174, [2] pp. Advert last 2 pp. 14 illustrations by Leech, et al. 8vo. 6-3/4" x 4-3/16" Cricket was Dickens' 3rd Christmas book, debuting 20 December 1845, and quickly requiring 2 additional editions. The story one of allaying a husband's suspicions, when he sees his young wife talking with another gentleman; said suspicions laid to rest by the work's supernatural agent, the Cricket. While not capturing the public's favor as did his initial foray into Christmas novellas with Christmas Carol, "Andrew Sanders has argued that it has key similarities to Shakespearean comedy and should be seen 'both as a significant indication of the tastes of the 1840s and Dickens himself.'" [as quoted by Schlicke in the Reader's Companion to Dickens, p. 124.].

        The Count of Monte Cristo. Comprising "The Chateau D'If: A Romance" and "The Count of Monte Christo", being a sequel. [Published in The Parlour Novelist, A Series of Works of Fiction By The Most Celebrated Authors. Volumes 3, 8 and 9].

      Belfast; Simms and M'Intyre; London; W. S. Orr and Co. 1846.. 3 Volumes, Octavo. First Appearance in English of "Le Comte De Monte Christo."; complete as issued in three parts of The Parlour Novelist and the first and only translation into English based upon the original text of the novel. Bound in recent half red calf over marbled paper covered boards. Green title labels, all edges with contemporary red speckling. Gilt centre tools to spine compartments. Very bright and sharp; near-fine. First appearing as a serial in the Parisian "Journal de Debats" between August 1844 and January 1846. The first book editions to be published were unsurprisingly in Paris and Brussels. The first Paris edition is extremely rare, auction records can trace no copy at auction in the last 50 years at least, although a copy of the second Paris edition sold at Christie's Paris in 2010 for a quarter of a million Euros. The novel was a tremendous success in France and there was something of an indecorous scuffle amongst English publishers eager to get their hands on it for domestic publication. Simms, M'Intyre and Orr published the first part of the novel in their "Parlour Novelist" in March 1846; barely two months after the final installment appeared in "Le Journal de Debats." Following the example of the Parisian publishers Simms and M'Intyre published the novel in parts with the first third of the text appearing under the title "The Chateau D' If" as volume 3 of The Parlour Novelist with the rest of the novel appearing in volumes 8 and 9 a little later. The fact that they were the first to obtain rights to such a prestigious novel was not lost on Simms M'Intyre who rather smugly proclaimed their priority in the preface: "In presenting the following translation to the English Public, the publisher's feel considerable gratification in being the first to make known to them this charming romance, the chef d'ouevre of the most dinstinguished of French novelists, ALEXANDRE DUMAS... Belfast, March 1, 1846" (The Chateau D'If, p. V) The Simms and M'Intyre translation by Emma Hardy (credited as being the first English translation in the foreword to the 2008 Oxford University Press edition of Monte Cristo) was clearly based on the original text of the novel as it first appeared in the Journal de Debats. The confirmation of this can be found in two rather minor but essential points of issue; the date of 24th of February in the first line of the novel (later revised to 28th February) and the spelling of "Christo" with an "h" throughout; this spelling was the one retained in the Paris and Brussels editions and was only changed to Cristo for the first illustrated edition (Paris, Au Bureau de L'Echo Des Feuilletons, 1846). The second English translation was the one commissioned by Chapman and Hall. This was based upon the revised text of the novel, with the dat of 28th of February in the first line and the "h" dropped from Christo. The source text was most likely the above mentioned L'Echo Des Feuilletons edition. According to Munro and Sadleir the Chapman and Hall edition (May) appeared after the Simms M'Intyre Parlour Novelist vol. 3 (March). Complete sets of the 3 volumes of the Simms M'Intyre edition are very rare. OCLC records no copies of three volume sets, and only three sets of the Parlour Novelist series containing these volumes (two of which are in the British Library and one in Cambridge). Even odd volumes appear extremely scarce with arguably the largest and most comprehensive Dumas collection (The FW Reed Dumas Collection in Auckland) holding only the first volume. ABPC records no copies of any of the three volumes, and no sets of the Parlour Novelist. A scarce and important edition of one of the most famous creations in the history of the novel.

        Narrative of a Four Months' Residence Among the Natives of A Valley of the Marquesas Islands; Or, a Peep at Polynesian Life

      London: John Murray, 1846. First edition. An extraordinary copy of Melville's first book. Preceding the US printing (titled "Typee") by a month. First issue, in the "A" variant, according to BAL (13652), wtih the publisher's terminal catalogue dated "March, 1846," apparently without bibliographical significance. P. 19, line 1 with the uncorrected text: "Pomarea." This copy is in Near Fine condition and completely untouched. A few small chips from the spine ends, cloth one shade lighter on the spine, previous owner's name and bookplate on the front paste-down and an old NY bookseller's description tipped in on the front end paper. Browning to initial and final leaves. However, despite the long list of subtle flaws, the finest copy to appear on the market for many years. Perhaps on par with the copy at Swann in 2006 that sold for $13,800, although we have yet to see an image of that copy. Most are rebound and the few in original cloth are typically rebacked or are later printings.

Dickens's second novel, Oliver Twist was first published serially between February 1837 and April 1839 in Bentley's Miscellany, and then as a three-volume book by Richard Bentley in 1838 (six months before the initial serialization was complete). This single volume was substantially revised by Dickens, who had bought back his copyright from Richard Bentley; many of his revisions were in the direction of a more dramatic rendering of the text, in light of his experience of public reading.

        Route Across the Rocky Mountains, with a description of Oregon and California: their geographical features, their resources, soil, climate, productions

      John B. Semans, printer, Lafayette, In 1846 - 152pp. Original green drab boards with cloth spine. Cloth worn, hinges cracked but solid. Corners worn. Bookplate on front pastedown, contemporary ink inscription on front flyleaf. Some light foxing. In a red half morocco and cloth slipcase and chemise, spine gilt. A very rare key overland guide One of the earliest and rarest of overland guide books to the Oregon Trail, chronologically the second such guide, preceded only by the Hastings guide of 1845. The authors went overland to Oregon in 1843. Winter went to California the following year, then returned to Indiana, where he arranged to publish this guidebook in time for the 1846 emigrant season. The guide provides a detailed account of the 1843 trip, a long description of Oregon, Winter's route to California, the Bear Flag movement, gold at Santa Barbara, and of northern California. The return route from California is also described, and there is a table of distances in the rear. Winter eventually settled in the Napa-Sonoma area. This is the issue with corrected text on pages 26 and 36. A rarity, afforded a "d" by Howes, who calls it "one of the greatest of early overland narratives." This copy with an ownership inscription which reads, "Jno. M.Gowan / Johnson classmate in / college for 3 years." A later hand has indicated that this was Wabash College, in Crawfordsville. A key guide and important work of Western Americana, with an interesting association. Cowan I, p.315; Graff 2221; Howes J142, "d."; Sabin 36260; Streeter Sale 3145; Wagner-Camp 122.
