folio, 56 manuscript pages, 4 manuscript maps and one printed map of the Nicobar Islands laid in, original blue gray paper wraps, text in very good clean and legible condition, few tears into text on 3 leaves affecting text somewhat.

The printed map is a folding colored map, entitled: Geognostische Karte der Nicobarischen Inseln, likely extracted from a contemporary German atlas, measures 17 ¼ x 10 ⅜ inches. The Galathea expeditions comprise a series of three Danish naval scientific research expeditions in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, carried out with material assistance from the Royal Danish Navy.

Stewart, William Drummond]
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1846. Two volumes. [2],xxix,[25]-255;240pp. Presentation binding of original full black morocco, gilt extra, raised bands, a.e.g., gilt inner dentelles, rebacked, with original spines laid down. Some rubbing and light wear. Light, occasional foxing, but overall a very good plus copy. An important overland narrative, edited by J. Watson Webb, and inscribed by him to Louisa Mason on the front flyleaf of each volume. The book was based on William Drummond Stewart's sporting and fur trading expeditions in 1832, 1838 and 1842 led by the Scottish nobleman who hired Alfred Jacob Miller to write his last adventure in the Rockies before taking over the lordship of Murthley Castle. The account includes the great rendezvous in 1837 where mountain men, Indians, and "savage" white men gathered to trade and socialize. "The Englishman [Stewart], an ardent sportsman, spent five years...in the wilds between the Mississippi and the Pacific...Indian life, character, and legends form the staple of [the] composition" - Field. Stewart also befriended Alfred Jacob Miller, who accompanied him on his later trips to the Rockies. Very few copies of this work were bound in a special full black morocco presentation binding, gilt. This is an attractive copy of one of those few special copies, additionally inscribed by the editor of the work. GRAFF 3986. FIELD 1632. HOWES S991. PHILLIPS SPORTING BOOKS, p.360. WAGNER-CAMP 125.

München, Litterarisch-artistische Anstalt 1846. 2., vermehrte Auflage. 22 Seiten, 4 unpaginierte Blätter aus dickem, festen Karton. Mit 10 gestochenen Abbildungen des galvanischen Apparats auf einer Tafel und 2 blattgroßen galvanographischen Proben auf starkem Papier im Anhang. Gr. 8° (25 x 17 cm). Orig.-Broschur. Seltenes Werk zur Geschichte der Druck- und Reproduktionstechnik mit schöner Provenienz. - Poggendorff I, 1286f. - NDB XXII, 238ff. - Ritter Franz von Kobell (1803-1882) war einer der bedeutendsten deutschen Mineralogen und Naturforscher des 19. Jahrhunderts. Als korrespondierendes Mitglied mehrerer wissenschaftlicher Gesellschaften und Träger hoher Orden arbeitete er nach der Einführung der Galvanoplastik durch Moritz Hermann von Jacobi an galvanischen Vervielfältigungsmethoden. Mit seinem Kollegen Carl August von Steinheil nahm er 1839 die ersten Daguerreotypien in Deutschland auf. Sie fotografierten mit einer von Steinheil entwickelten Camera obscura die Glyptothek und die Türme der Frauenkirche. Kobell führte dabei Silberchlorid-Papiere zur Fixierung von Lichtbildern ein und schuf damit den Prototyp eines photochemischen Verfahrens, das später verbessert wurde. Neben seiner naturwissenschaftlichen Arbeit spielte Kobell die Zither, schrieb Erzählungen in oberbayerischer Mundart und dichtete ausgiebig zur Jagd, Liebe und Wein. - Vorliegende Arbeit, ein frühes Werk Kobells zu dem von ihm selbst erst 1840 erfundenen galvanographischen Verfahren, trug maßgeblich zur Verbreitung und späteren Verbesserung der Galvanographie bei; die erste Ausgabe war 1842 erschienen … [Click Below for Full Description]

BELCHER, Edward.
London: Hydrographic Office of the Admiralty, May 1st 1843-6. 625 x 930mm. A few small repairs. A very important chart of Hong Kong, engraved by J. & C. Walker from the survey by Sir Edward Belcher in 1841, the year before the island was ceded to Britain. This is a very early example, with corrections to 1846, only three years after the first edition. The settlement at Victoria is unnamed, although Victoria Bay and Victoria Peak are so marked. On the south side of the island both Aberdeen and Stanley have yet to be given their English names, and Kowloon is little more than a fort. This remained the best chart of Hong Kong for many years and was re-issued until at least 1960, heavily revised. Early examples of these charts remain rare as they were issued for practical use and were discarded when updated versions became available. Captain Edward Belcher produced charts of all over the world for the Navy and also wrote accounts of his voyage around the world and an expedition to the Arctic. He ended his career in the navy as an Admiral. [Attributes: First Edition]

Valentin. 19th century full diced russia calf by "Proudfoot Binder." Black morocco spine labels. Bindings a bit worn and rubbed, but without any wear or cracking to the hinges. Internal contents generally Very Good with some minor foxing and soiling. This remained the standard English text until the Buss translation was released in 1996. Along with The Three Musketeers, The Count of Monte Cristo cemented Dumas' reputation as France's premier adventure writer and a forefather of popular fiction. "First to sheer narrative power -- Dumas was a master of narrative -- and secondly to the theme. It is a story for all time, a 19th-century version of 'The Arabian Nights,' a gorgeous piece of escapism from the drudgery of daily life. The glamorous figure of Dantes, who triumphs over injustice and with his limitless wealth and power can control Destiny, punish his enemies and reward his friends, is an ideal which stirs all men's repressed longings for and fantasies of personal greatness" (Sudley). Yet The Count of Monte Cristo offers more than a sprawling tale of revenge. Through its web of literary references, most notably to Plato's Allegory of the Cave and Dante's Divine Comedy, the novel participates in the tradition of the epic hero; and it traces Edmund Dantes' progress from his fall and path through the hell of Chateau d'If, as he makes his way through revenge and temptation to enter a new life marked by forgiveness a … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Venezuela] [Treaty between Spain and Venezuela].
This is the official treaty in which Spain recognises the creation and Independence of the newly formed Republic of Venezuela, following the revolutionary war. Its articles include the Queen's renunciation of any rights over the American country, and recognises it as a free and independent nation. On its part, Venezuela assumes all the contracted debt by the Capitania de Venezuela during the colony. Exceptionally rare, we can only find one other copy of this significant treaty in a public institution (Yale). According the bibliographical note on Yale's copy, the document was printed in Caracas, although could have been printed in Spain as well, in small numbers. The treaty was signed by Fermin Toro (Minister Plenipotentiary for Venezuela to Spain) who signes in name of Carlos Soublette, President of Venezuela, and Francisco Martinez de la Rosa, (member of the Consejo de Estado of Spain, representing Elizabeth II, Queen of Spain); it was ratified in all its parts by the Congress of Venezuela in 27 May 1845, and by the Queen of Spain on 19 June 1845.

Original green half cloth, mottled green paper boards, front board lettered in red and gold, plain cream endpapers, with numerous documents, mounted, tipped in, or laid in to pink paper. Illustrated throughout. A unique collection of papers and photographs documenting the history of a family owned German wine business across two centuries. Beginning with a photograph of Ernst Ferdinand Cronenbold, who founded the company in 1847, this extensively illustrated scrapbook charts the growth of what would later become known as Carl Wiewels, a wholesale wine merchants in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region. Carl Wiewels was sole owner of the firm from 1883–1903 and it appears that the company specialised at first in Piesporter; by 1913 the company's spring wine list included 92 different varieties. Documents such as contracts, export applications, bottle labels, business plans, handwritten letters, bills of sale, price lists, photographs of the shop and workers, judicial reviews of staff theft, advertisements, telegrams, certificates, and newspaper articles are included. There are a large portion of documents relating to the company's 100 year anniversary in 1947, and an emphasis on their frequent international trade with Hong Kong, Yokohama, and Kobe. Great care has been taken in the composition and layout; group photographs of employees, for example, have been overlaid with transparent paper on which faces have been numbered, with names provided in a corresponding list.

SMITH, John Calvin
J.H. Colton, 1846. Large folding colored map affixed to the rear paste-down, virtually never before opened. Original publisher's green cloth decorated in blind with the title and date in gilt on the front cover, stain to front and part of spine; overall a splendid, clean and beautiful copy. Originally printed in 1839, this guide to new and soon-to-be states contained information generally intended for people, especially immigrants, moving west. It provided data regarding the size of each county and city, population, water and agricultural information, public buildings (such as courthouses, churches and stores), and of interest the stagecoach routes and distances between cities. The map is perfect.

SAGE, Rufus B. (1817-1893)
Carey & Hart, Philadelphia, 1846. (7 1/8 x 4 3/4 inches). 303pp. Large folding map. Map silked with repaired tears. Twentieth century polished calf bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, spine with raised bands in six compartments, red morocco lettering piece, repeat decoration in gilt. First edition, first issue of one of the most important overland narratives: this copy complete with its important map. Sage set out from Westport in the summer of 1841 with a fur caravan, later visiting New Mexico, witnessing the disaster of the Snively expedition, and joining the end of the 1843 Fremont expedition. He returned to Ohio in time to take a vigorous if futile role in the election of 1844, supporting Henry Clay. He wrote this book in 1845. The story of the publication of this work and its subsequent sale is told by LeRoy Hafen in the introduction to the most scholarly edition of Sage, issued in two volumes by the Arthur H. Clark Co. in 1956. According to Hafen, the publishers of the original edition felt the addition of a map would cost too much, and it was only at the author's insistence that a map was printed and sold with the book, at a higher rate. The map, based mainly on the 1845 Fremont map, is usually not found with the book. It is "one of the earliest to depict the finally-determined Oregon boundary.one of the earliest attempts to show on a map the evermore-heavily traveled emigrant road to California" (Wheat). It adds interesting notes on the country and locations of fur trading establishments. Howes notes that it is "the best contemporary account of Snively's abortive land-p … [Click Below for Full Description]
