Talbot, [William] H. [Henry] Fox
London: John Murray, 1847. First edition. 8vo., vii, 492 pp., with 16 pp. of advertisements dated July, 1846. Publisher's cloth decorated in blind and titled in gilt on the spine. Tips slightly curled and rubbed; a clean tear at the rear joint and at the spine crown have been expertly repaired and are barely noticeable. Original owner's neat signature on the front pastedown. Polymath, William Henry Fox Talbot, inventor of the negative/positive photographic process, the photogravure printing process, which afforded reproduction of images from life to ink on paper, translator of Assyrian cuneiforms, and etymologist of the English language, here states, "in giving the opinion of previous inquirers, I have frequently quoted Johnson, and also Thompson's Etymons of English Words. But it is evident that Johnson had no taste for etymology, so that the assistance to be derived from him is usually rather meagre." Limited to 500 copies. [Attributes: First Edition]

[TOUSTAIN-RICHEBOURG, Henri de].
30 ll.Interesting French manuscript guide for travelling from Alexandria to Cairo, written by a Norman nobleman. The guide instructs the traveller to travel overnight from Alexandria to Atfeh (Al 'Atf) by way of a cangia (a type of passenger boat) over the Mahmoudiyah Canal. In Atfeh the traveller is advised to buy a marmite (a French cooking vessel), a casserole and several clay jugs for storing Nile water, before boarding a dahabeah (a large cangia) to Cairo. Among the activities suggested for Cairo is a visit to the cavalry school in Giza, where its director, the French colonel Varin, will receive the traveller like "a good Norman innkeeper". When visiting the pyramids, the traveller will be assailed by Bedouins “in an instant". If you desire to climb a pyramid, "address yourself to the Sheikh el-Beled and tell him to give you three men and to send away the others. A Bedouin will take you by each hand, another will push you from behind and in an instant you will be up". Also of interest is the polytechnic school in Bulaq, headed by the Frenchman Lambert. There the traveller can take a cangia to Rosetta (and back to France).It is unknown whether the writer based this guide on his own experiences or relied on information from others. However, the fact that he specifically mentions a Frenchman in Egyptian service and compares him to a Norman innkeeper suggests that the source of the information was, like the author, a Norman. The dating is likewise unknown, but an interesting piece of information is that the traveller is advised to have his boat thoroughly cleaned. In the 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

PAÑO Y RUATA, Mariano de.
XLVI, [2], 303, [1 blank]; [8] pp.First edition of a transcript of one of the first accounts of a Spanish Muslim's journey to Mecca and Medina in the 16t hcentury, edited by the prolific and widely-interested scholar Mariano de Paño y Ruata (1847-1948) and with an introduction by the Arabist Eduardo Saavedra (1829-1912). The manuscript was originally written in Aljamiado, a technique for using Arabic script for transcribing European languages and only discovered by the end of the 19th century, when it was found amongst the papers of an old house about to be demolished in Almonacid de la Sierra. It is the narrative of authentic Muslim throughout the Mediterranean in pilgrimage to Mecca, in either the second half of the 16thcentury or the beginning of the 17th. The narrative often is elevated to poetry, which is combined with a faithful and detailed account of the voyage.He visited Hammamet, Hergla, Sousse, Monastir, Mahdia, Sfax, Mahres and Djerba; from the later he continued through the Gulf of Sirte or Sidra, facing a storm, then proceeded to the Kingdom of Montebarca. From there on to Cairo and Bercat-Alhach, Sinai and Yedda, before reaching Mecca and Medina.The first and last leaf slightly foxed and the spine label a bit worn, but otherwise in very good condition.l CCPB000169905-9; Palau 211513.

Rough cut edges, original yellow endpapers with a list of 117 Bentley's Standard Novels and Romances, Mansfield Park being No. 27, Engraved frontispiece, 424 pp. A very good plus edition, clean with bright clear gilt on the spine. very light rubbing to the spine tips and corners. There are 2 tiny holes of 2mm at the foot of the spine and a very difficult to see 1cm split in the cloth on the front joint extending up from the foot. There is a hint of a bruise to the bottom fore edge corner of the front board and the cloth on the corners on the front is just rubbed through. Internally the book is very good plus clean and bright noting only a small modern bookplate on the front pastedown and a small 1/2 cm closed tear and crease to the bottom margin of p247 which does not affect any text. A very scarce edition as Gilson states; 'The Standard Novels issues�were frequently reprinted but�so few of these reprints survive in libraries and even fewer in original condition.' This conforms to the 1847 edition in Sadlier No. 4 style mentioned in D7.

McKinley, Ida (1847-1907)
McKinley, Ida (1847-1907) - Card signed by her husband US President William McKinley - Card signed "Ida S McKinley". 4.5 x 2.0 inch, n.p., n.d. Signed in dark black ink by President William McKinley. Mounting residue on verso, else fine condition. Together with a bookpage-photo of Ida McKinley. A very rare card that was signed for the First Lady by her famous proxy - President William McKinley (1843-1901) himself. Mrs. McKinley suffered from epilepsy, was totally dependent on her husband, and therefore had little public role as First Lady. Her autograph is one of the rarest among First Ladies. In my landmark 2006 study for "The Manuscript Society", I demonstrated that President McKinley actually signed various items, including fully handwritten letters and cards for his wife Ida, this card is one of them. A copy of my article for the Manuscript Society is included. COMES WITH A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY BY ANDREAS WIEMER HISTORICAL AUTOGRAPHS. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Andersen, Hans Christian
London: Joseph Cundall, 1847. Very good plus.. Original printed pictorial paper boards rebacked with 20th-century paper spine. Illustrated with 8 tinted lithographs after Franz Graf von Pocci and black-and-white wood engravings throughout. Corners and boards moderately rubbed; plates mildly foxed but interior otherwise crisp and bright. Early omnibus version of Charles Boner's two translations of Andersen fairy tales published in 1846, and one of the scarcest of the early editions in English. About a decade after Andersen's first children's stories in Danish, the English-speaking world was finally introduced to them in 1846. The translator of this volume, Charles Boner, was responsible for three of the first five English collections of Andersen's works in that year: THE DANISH STORY BOOK and THE NIGHTINGALE AND OTHER STORIES, both published by Joseph Cundall; and THE SHOES OF FORTUNE, published by Chapman and Hall. In the following year Boner released this compendium of his first two collections, which includes 21 English translations of many of Andersen's greatest stories, such as "The Ugly Duck," "The Little Mermaid," "The Princess and the Peas," and "The Emperor's New Clothes." Apparently unauthorized by the publisher (see Mylius), this 1847 version appears as scarce as its predecessors.

London: Chapman and Hall, 1847. Very good plus.. Original full blue cloth, elaborate blind-stamped borders to boards, central gilt vignette on front board, elaborately gilt-stamped spine. Yellow endpapers, top and fore-edge uncut. Illustrated with four tinted lithographs after Otto Speckter and black-and-white wood engravings throughout. Publisher's catalogue at rear. Translated by Charles Boner. [6], 168, 32 pages. Housed in a custom blue cloth clamshell box with blue goatskin spine label. Top margin of title page neatly excised, apparently to remove a signature. Lithographs a bit foxed. Spine lightly sunned, bumping to spine extremities and corners, a few spots of soiling to cloth. First edition one of the earliest collections of Andersen's fairy tales to be translated into English. About a decade after Andersen's first children's stories in Danish, the English-speaking world was finally introduced to them in 1846. The translator of this volume, Charles Boner, was responsible for two of the first four English collections of Andersen's works in that year; according to Osborne, this book actually appeared as the fifth and final English translation of 1846 (though dated 1847, as common for titles published for the December Christmas rush - we have handled at least one copy with an 1846 Christmas inscription). Historian Jack Zipes suggests the translations of Andersen's stories were a turning point for the English fairy tale; they "guaranteed the legitimacy of the literary fairy tale for middle-class audiences. From this point on, the fairy tale flowered in many different f … [Click Below for Full Description]

First issue; no textual changes to page 31 and 121 and “Publisher’s Advertisement” as single preliminary leaf. Previous owner’s signatures on front endpaper (contemporary). Modern boards and clamshell box in fine condition; text block is heavily rubbed around edges and has moderate foxing and light soiling throughout; page iii has a 2 ½” tear, affecting content, first leaf has archival repairs where bound in, and last leaf was torn in half and detached from binding but has been repaired. Overall good. A well-used, unsophisticated copy of the “most reliable of early guides to Oregon; in addition the best narrative by a participant in the overland migration of 1845, which more than doubled the population of Oregon” (Howes). In Ruben Gold Thwaites reprint of the 1847 edition he states: “Palmer makes no pretense of literary finish. He gives us a simple narrative of each day’s happenings during his own first journey in 1845, taking special care to indicate the route, each night’s camping places, and all possible cut-offs, springs, grassy oases, and whatever might conduce to the well-being of the emigrant and his beasts.

London: Smith, Elder, and Co, 1847. Near fine.. Late 19th-century 3/4 green calf with green and blue marbled boards. Raised bands, gilt-stamped spine. Marbled endpapers and text block edges. With all three half titles; without publisher's ads. [4], 304; [4], 304; [4], 311, [1] pages. 20th-century bookplate of a woman owner, "Constance," on front pastedowns. Older pencil cataloging notes on verso of volume I front fly leaf. Housed in custom blue clamshell box. Some unobtrusive surface wear to binding extremities, infrequent light foxing to text: a remarkably fresh copy overall. First edition of a key work in the development of the English novel, written by the previously unknown Charlotte Brontë under the pseudonym Currer Bell. JANE EYRE focused on the inner experience of a woman's life, building on a powerful literary ancestry of works like EVELINA by Frances Burney and THE MYSTERIES OF UDOLPHO by Ann Radcliffe. The book was wildly popular upon publication, spurring the demand for stories focusing on the interior state and perceptions of the protagonist. Tracing the development of its heroine from her earliest days spent reading in isolation through the hard choice rejecting ill-fated love and finally to the achievement of her rightful estate, JANE EYRE remains a central work in English literature.

Schumann, Robert, Komponist (1810-1856).
Prachtvoller, großer Brief an den Verlag C. F. Peters in Leipzig über die Herausgabe seiner Oper "Genoveva" und seines Oratoriums "Das Paradies und die Peri": "[...] Mit dem Wunsche, daß unsere freundlich begonnenen Unterhandlungen zu einem erfreulichen Ende führen möchten, bin ich so frei, Ihnen meine weiteren Bedingungen und sonstigen Gedanken wegen Herausgabe der Oper mitzutheilen. Der Clavierauszug giebt circa 190 Platten, also etwa 60 Platten mehr, als der meines Oratoriums 'Die Peri', für die ich von den Hrn. Verlegern mit 100 Ld'or honorirt wurde. Dabei wäre noch zu dem Vortheile des Verlegers der Oper zu erwähnen, einmal, daß ich dabei nicht, wie bei der Peri, auf den Stich der Partitur bestehe, sodann, daß ja eine Oper voraussichtlich immer ein größeres Vertriebsterrain hat, wie ich denn auch hoffe, daß sich die Ouverture allein einer günstigen Aufnahme zu erfreuen haben wird. Alsdann muß ich, was bei der Peri nicht der Fall war, auch den Text in Anschlag bringen, für den ich dem theilweise Verfasser, Hrn [Robert] Reinick in Dresden 20 Ldor zu zahlen habe. Wollen Sie dies alles in Erwägung ziehen, so denke ich, finden Sie ein Honorar von 160 Ldor [...] kein unbilliges. Dafür erhalten Sie aber auch den fertigen zweihändigen Clavierauszug der Ouverture u. der Oper mit, den meine liebe Frau [Clara] zum größten Theil schon vollendet hat. Den 4händigen Clavierauszug der Ouverture, habe ich einem sehr guten mir bekannten Musiker in Dresden, Hrn. Pfretschner, übergeben, der ihn Ihnen auf das Billigste u. Beste liefern wird.

Snow, John
London, 1847. Snow, John (1813-58). On the inhalation of the vapour of ether. In London Medical Gazette, n.s., 4 (1847): 498-502; 539-542. Whole volume. [2], 1142pp. Text illustrations. 214 x 145 mm. 19th-century half calf, marbled boards, light rubbing and wear. Very good. First Edition, journal issue. Snow's first real paper on ether anesthesia, containing the first illustration of his regulating ether inhaler, the earliest such device to control the amount of ether vapor received by the patient. Snow's paper, published on 19 March 1847, appeared prior to his separately published pamphlet On the Inhalation of the Vapour of Ether in Surgical Operations (October 1847); it was preceded only by three small tables on ether saturation of air that Snow published in the Medical Times, London Medical Gazette and The Pharmaceutical Journal in January and February 1847. When ether anesthesia was introduced to England in late 1846 Snow immediately began experimenting with the process; he eventually became the first physician to limit his practice to anesthesiology. As the earliest specialist in clinical anesthesiology, Snow was also the first to perform experiments on the physiology of the anesthetized state, the results of which laid the foundations for the development of anesthesiology as a science. In the present paper Snow included an updated version of his table of the proportion of ether to air, at temperatures ranging from 38 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Garrison-Morton.com 12954.

Bereits als Neunjähriger beginnt Max Liebermann seine unmittelbare Umgebung mit Stift und Papier einzufangen. Als der renommierte Berliner Maler Carl Steffeck Zeichnungen des 15-Jährigen zu sehen bekommt, rät er entgegen den Wünschen der Eltern, dieses Talent unbedingt zu fördern. Er erteilt dem Jungen ersten Unterricht und ermuntert ihn zum Besuch der Weimarer Akademie. Liebermann studiert dort dreieinhalb Jahre bis 1872. Eine Reise nach Düsseldorf führt den jungen Künstler 1871 zu Mihály Munkácsy, einem dort lebenden ungarischen Maler, dessen Realismus ihn begeistert. Unter diesem Eindruck entsteht noch im selben Jahr sein erstes großes Bild "Die Gänserupferinnen". Die ungeschönte Wirklichkeit darin, die bei Kritikern auf herbe Ablehnung stößt, wird von nun an charakteristisch für Liebermanns Darstellungsweise. Die Jahre 1873 bis 1878 verbringt er in Paris und dem Künstlerort Barbizon. Liebermann beschäftigt sich mit der Kunst Millets, dessen Bilder von der Arbeit des einfachen Menschen auf dem Land ihn nachhaltig beeinflussen. Seit seinem ersten Aufenthalt in Holland im Jahr 1871 reist Liebermann regelmäßig dorthin. Er findet hier die geeigneten Motive zu mehreren seiner wichtigsten Werke.

Parables is Humphreys' first printed illuminated book in a papier-mâché binding.Black 4to. Gilt edges. 32pp col pages, chromos, minor foxing .Each of the four corners has a wreath containing the head of an angel, a lion, an eagle or an ox, representing Gospel authors Matthew, Mark, John and Luke. Stylized oak leaves occupy the top and bottom central rectangles. The central figure is a sower within a wreath around which two ribbons are wrapped on a staff. "Scripture Parables" appears on the ribbons in raised Gothic letters. The only other copy I have had was respined. The original plain lettered spine is present and there is no damage to the boards. Probably as good an example you could find.Referenced in a chapter and a section of Ruari McLean's "Victorian book design and colour Printing" (Univesity of California 1972) this is a landmark book in two respects. Firstly the illustrator/author Henry Noel Humphreys to which McLean dedicates a chapter in his book. This work is the first of three such works publisher by Humphreys in 1847. Secondly for the binding "the black papier mache bindings, supreme examples of Victorian Gothic and perhaps the most successful of all the ingenuities of Victorian commercial bookbinding".

SCHMIEDEKNECHT, Otto.
Complete set of a standard hymenopterological work on ichneumon wasps by the German entomologist Otto Schmiedeknecht (1847-1936). The set consists of 6 volumes, including a register, and 25 supplement volumes, numbered Fasc. I-XXV. "... (at the turn of the 20th century) extensive work was carried out by ichneumonologists ... All of the research done in this period has been recorded in Schmiedeknecht's (1902-1936) multivolume work, Opuscula ichneumonologica. In the division of the subfamily Tryphoninae, Schmiedeknecht followed Holmgren's system but treated the tribe Tryphonini within the limits set by Thomson ... He included 13 genera comprising some 120 species of Palearctic (predominantly European) fauna" (Kasparyan). With some owner's annotations in the margins, slightly browned. Most of the supplements with spine reinforced and an occasional crease, but wholly untrimmed. In very good condition.l Junk, Rara, pp. 150, 215; Kasparyan, Fauna of the USSR, Hymenoptera (1989) p. 92.

Large folio (65 x 48 cm. approx.), additional pictorial lithograph title, 25 lithographs, subsribers' list at end, final 2 plates with neat marginal repairs not affecting image, original red morocco-backed cloth boards, gilt vignette to upper copy, neat repairs to cover edges, lightly worn, a very good copy. mba004 John le Capelain (1812-1848) who came to be known as Jean, was born, in London, the son of Jerseyman, Samuel Le Capelain (1785-1850), and Elizabeth Anne Pinckney (1782-1851), from England. Today Le Capelain is probably best remembered for a series of watercolours of Jersey which were presented by the States of Jersey to Queen Victoria in commemoration of her visit to the island in September 1846. Bound in red morocco they were presented to the Queen by four States members the following year. The volume contained 16 etchings of Jersey scenes and six of the visit itself. They were subsequently turned into lithographs and published by Philip Falle in the present work. Queen Victoria chose three of the originals to be included in her personal souvenir album which recorded her travels in pictures. The three scenes chosen depict various aspects of St Aubin's Bay which she found so inspiring. Abbey (Scenery), 553. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

PAÑO Y RUATA, Mariano de.
XLVI, [2], 303, [1 blank]; [8] pp.First edition of a transcript of one of the first accounts of a Spanish Muslim's journey to Mecca and Medina in the 16t hcentury, edited by the prolific and widely-interested scholar Mariano de Paño y Ruata (1847-1948) and with an introduction by the Arabist Eduardo Saavedra (1829-1912). The manuscript was originally written in Aljamiado, a technique for using Arabic script for transcribing European languages and only discovered by the end of the 19th century, when it was found amongst the papers of an old house about to be demolished in Almonacid de la Sierra. It is the narrative of authentic Muslim throughout the Mediterranean in pilgrimage to Mecca, in either the second half of the 16thcentury or the beginning of the 17th. The narrative often is elevated to poetry, which is combined with a faithful and detailed account of the voyage.He visited Hammamet, Hergla, Sousse, Monastir, Mahdia, Sfax, Mahres and Djerba; from the later he continued through the Gulf of Sirte or Sidra, facing a storm, then proceeded to the Kingdom of Montebarca. From there on to Cairo and Bercat-Alhach, Sinai and Yedda, before reaching Mecca and Medina.The first and last leaf slightly foxed and the spine label a bit worn, but otherwise in very good condition.l CCPB000169905-9; Palau 211513.

In a secondary binding of blue leather grained cloth, gilt titles to spine. Seemingly bound from the first edition sheets printed by Samuel Bentley for the original publisher Richard Bentley, with the preface dated 1836, with a later title page dated 1847 issued by George Routledge. Bound without the original title pages and lacking the two frontispiece plates but with the plates of the 'Okanagan Marmot' and the 'Chart of the Proposed Route' as per the list of plates at the rear. Ownership to title page, textblock mildly toned, some spotting to preliminaries and the occasional mark, some rubbing and wear to the top of the fore edge. Binding rather rubbed and worn, some loss to the top of the backstrip, top of rear board quite heavily abraded. A sound copy in a used binding. Good. First published in 1836, this is an account of the expedition formed to discover the fate of the Second Ross Expedition, which set out in 1829. Since the Ross Expedition had already returned by the time Captain Back set out in 1833, several seasons were spent exclusively on further exploration. In addition to Captain Back's own account of the voyage, this account by the ship's surgeon appeared the year after their return. A rare book with few copies appearing in commerce or at auction.

[TOUSTAIN-RICHEBOURG, Henri de].
30 ll.Interesting French manuscript guide for travelling from Alexandria to Cairo, written by a Norman nobleman. The guide instructs the traveller to travel overnight from Alexandria to Atfeh (Al 'Atf) by way of a cangia (a type of passenger boat) over the Mahmoudiyah Canal. In Atfeh the traveller is advised to buy a marmite (a French cooking vessel), a casserole and several clay jugs for storing Nile water, before boarding a dahabeah (a large cangia) to Cairo. Among the activities suggested for Cairo is a visit to the cavalry school in Giza, where its director, the French colonel Varin, will receive the traveller like "a good Norman innkeeper". When visiting the pyramids, the traveller will be assailed by Bedouins “in an instant". If you desire to climb a pyramid, "address yourself to the Sheikh el-Beled and tell him to give you three men and to send away the others. A Bedouin will take you by each hand, another will push you from behind and in an instant you will be up". Also of interest is the polytechnic school in Bulaq, headed by the Frenchman Lambert. There the traveller can take a cangia to Rosetta (and back to France).It is unknown whether the writer based this guide on his own experiences or relied on information from others. However, the fact that he specifically mentions a Frenchman in Egyptian service and compares him to a Norman innkeeper suggests that the source of the information was, like the author, a Norman. The dating is likewise unknown, but an interesting piece of information is that the traveller is advised to have his boat thoroughly cleaned. In the 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]
