John Parker Lawson
London, 1847. This stunning, first edition folio lithograph is from John Parker Lawson's "Scotland Delineated in a Series of Views.". The work was published in London by E. Gambert & Joseph Hogarth between 1847 and 1854. Each lithograph features beautiful original hand-coloring and are mounted to stiff cards. --- The cost of this project was enormous. David Roberts was paid £1000 for his contribution alone. This in turn led to its commercial failure and limited sale. This makes finding the plates in this state with original hand-coloring exceptionally rare. --- This work is one of the most attractive works of Scottish scenery and a major achievement in topographical lithography. The images truly reflect the grandeur and beauty of the Scottish landscape. The drawings were commissioned by noted landscape artists including J. M. W. Turner, David Roberts, J. D. Harding, Joseph Nash, Horatio Macculloch, D. O. Hill, W. A. Nesfield, Sir W. Allan, Clarkson Stanfield, George Cattermore, W. L. Leitch, and Thomas Creswick. The lithographs were mostly completed by J. D. Harding. --- Overall Very Good. There are a few faint fox marks and unobtrusive specks. There may be a few minor imperfections to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully and contact us with any questions. [Attributes: First Edition]

"Badenweiler, le 11. Juni, 1847". Format: 21,5 x 13,5 cm. *Wohl einer ihrer letzten Briefe, ca. 7 Wochen vor ihrem Tod. Im Sommer 1847 war Eugenie zur Kur nach Badenweiler gegangen.

First edition. 'One of the most important works in the history of Antarctic exploration ... Ross led this expedition for the purpose of Antarctic Discovery and Magnetic surveys, during which he circumnavigated the Antarctic continent, discovered the Ross Sea, Ross Island, the Ross Shelf Ice, Victoria Land, Erebus and Terror Gulf (named after the ships of the expedition), Mount Erebus, and attempted to penetrate the Weddell Sea' (Hill). Rosove calls the work 'a cornerstone of Antarctic literature and a monument to one of mankind's greatest expeditions of geographical and scientific exploration'. - This is the issue with the publisher's catalogue with the earliest date, January, 1847. Murray had only 1500 sets printed, and they 'were bound and sold over a period of several years, as indicated by the various dates on the advertisements at the rear of vol. II' (Rosove).

HORSBURGH, James
London,: James Horsburgh,, 1847. July 1831 corrections to 1847. Engraved chart, inset maps of the Pearl River and Macau, place names in English and Chinese, a few tears skilfully repaired, backed on Japan paper. James Horsburgh’s rare chart of the Pearl River Delta. The chart stretches north to south from Canton (Guangzhou) to Canzhou Island, and west to east from Dashi Bay to Hong Kong. The chart was first published by James Horsburgh in 1831, and the present edition has been corrected and updated to 1847. The chart has been heavily revised to incorporate the latest surveys, principally by Edward Belcher, who surveyed the waters in 1840 (published by the Admiralty in 1846). Chinese characters have been added to denote place names; the whole of the Pearl River has been re-engraved, with numerous soundings, banks, and shoals added. The revision extends to the large inset chart which provides information on the upper part of the Pearl River delta, with many of the pagodas and landmarks referenced in the charts text having been removed. To the lower left an inset chart of the Bay of Cum-Sing-Moon, from a survey by Captain Rees in 1833, has been added. Hong Kong and the Island of Lamma have been redrawn with Victoria named, and mountains, and bays marked. The extensive descriptive text remains unaltered. James Horsburgh (1762-1836) hydrographer to the East India Company, the foremost surveyor of Chinese waters of his day, was born and raised in the coastal town of Elie in the county of Fife. At the age of 16 he entered the naval profession as a humble cabin boy. He spent … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dumas, Alexandre. (Père, 1802–1870) [Shakespeare, William. (1564–1616)]
1847. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph quotation signed from the distinguished French novelist of such historical classics as The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, and The Man in the Iron Mask. Dumas has neatly penned a quotation of the first four lines from his "Billet d'Hamlet à Ophélie," this opening portion consisting of his translation of Shakespeare. The quotation reads: "Doutez qu'au firmament l'étoile soit de flamme/ Doutez que dans les cieux marche l'astre du jour/ La sainte vérité doutez-en dans votre âme/ Doutez de tout enfin, mais non de mon amour./ Hamlet II acte, Mr. Dumas." There are some small folds in the corners, and light tonight, but otherwise fine. approx. 7 x 9 in (17.7 x 23 cm.)The present lines are Dumas' translation of the Shakespeare: "Doubt thou the stars are fire;/ Doubt that the sun doth move;/ Doubt truth to be a liar;/ But never doubt I love.""Billet d'Hamlet à Ophélie" ("Hamlet's Letter to Ophelia") is an extract from Dumas' French-language adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet. The first four lines are a direct translation, in verse, of Hamlet's letter to Ophelia from the original Shakespeare. Dumas enlisted the assistance of Paul Meurice, one of his many protégés, to assist with the translation, as Dumas did not speak or read English particularly well. Their rendition of Hamlet was first performed atÂDumas' Théâtre HistoriqueÂin 1847. [Attributes: In Dust Jacket]

Dumas, Alexandre. (Père, 1802–1870) [Shakespeare, William. (1564–1616)]
1847. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph quotation signed from the distinguished French novelist of such historical classics as The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, and The Man in the Iron Mask. Dumas has neatly penned a quotation of the first four lines from his "Billet d'Hamlet à Ophélie," this opening portion consisting of his translation of Shakespeare. The quotation reads: "Doutez qu'au firmament l'étoile soit de flamme/ Doutez que dans les cieux marche l'astre du jour/ La sainte vérité doutez-en dans votre âme/ Doutez de tout enfin, mais non de mon amour./ Hamlet II acte, Mr. Dumas." There are some small folds in the corners, and light tonight, but otherwise fine. approx. 7 x 9 in (17.7 x 23 cm.)<br style="">The present lines are Dumas' translation of the Shakespeare: "Doubt thou the stars are fire;/ Doubt that the sun doth move;/ Doubt truth to be a liar;/ But never doubt I love."<br style="">"Billet d'Hamlet à Ophélie" ("Hamlet's Letter to Ophelia") is an extract from Dumas' French-language adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet. The first four lines are a direct translation, in verse, of Hamlet's letter to Ophelia from the original Shakespeare. Dumas enlisted the assistance of Paul Meurice, one of his many protégés, to assist with the translation, as Dumas did not speak or read English particularly well. Their rendition of Hamlet was first performed at Dumas' Théâtre Historique in 1847.

Folio, orig. cloth, blind-stamped design to both boards, with ruled borders, decorative motifs to corners and blind-stamped central, floral cartouche, containing gilt title to front board, rebacked with later matching spine, corners restored, some wear to edges; hinges cracked but firm, teg. Some marginal browning and occasional light foxing. A very good copy. First edition. Each plate is followed by one to three separately paginated leaves of descriptive letterpress.Joseph Maclise (c.1815-1880?) studied medicine at University College, London, and continued his anatomical studies in Paris at l'École Pratique, L'Hôpital le Pitié, and subsequently settled into medical practice in London. He produced a number of other anatomical works. In 1848 Richard Owen published his 'On the Archetype and Homologies of the Vertebrate Skeleton'. A priority dispute developed over the osteological application of the term archetype and Maclise 'pointed out . that the word had been "first introduced by me in the study of comparative osteology." In an article in the Lancet, "On the Nomenclature of Anatomy (Addressed to Professors Owen and Grant)," which appeared on 14 March 1846, Maclise had indeed discussed the possibility of "an original or archetype structure, from which the endo-skeleton designs are struck, and to which they are comparable."'

Robert Burns
Blackie And Son. The Works of Robert Burns w/Essay By Professor Wilson Two Vols (1847). These have been in a private collection for many years. The covers on both volumes do not stay in place very wel, as you can see in the photo someone attempted many years ago to repair it using some crude tape, it holds that volume. The binding remains very loosely connected to the spine, but only just. Despite that, it was still easy and not a risk to turn the pages (which I tried to do as little as possible to take the photos.) It appears this edition was printed in Glasgow! The covers and inside few first pages are spotted from what looks like moisture stains, but not enough that it ruins any of those early lithographs. I can provide more photos of the lithographs from this edition because they are stunning in their detail. You'll see they have been pressed against the tissue pages for so long they have left a slight faded watermark at times (example shown.) This is an excellent candidate for rebinding if the right expertise is interested in them. As far as I can tell this is truly one of a kind right now, I have been unsuccessful in finding another 1847 edition of this set anywhere. Please ask questions, it's an honor to be able to get this to an enthusiastic collector or expert in these antique and unique books.

Baldwin, A.S.
Pensacola, 1847. Very good.. [4]pp., on a bifolium. Previously folded. Light staining and tanning. In a neat, legible hand. A.S. Baldwin was a young Lieutenant who served through the entirety of the United States Exploring Expedition under the command of Charles Wilkes on three ships of the squadron. Early in the expedition, he dueled with Wilkes Henry, the nephew of the commander. In this letter, dated January 20, 1847, he writes from Pensacola to Senator Chester Ashley of Arkansas, seeking a command in the Gulf Squadron about to depart for the Mexican-American War. He says, in part: "If you have time and inclination to render me a service, I shall fully appreciate the inclination & prove myself worthy of your assistance should you succeed in obtaining the second idol of my heart -- I mean a command. You are already aware how earnestly I have sought employment since this Mexican War commenced. After several months closely watching the Gulf Squadron a vacancy appeared and I hastened to Washington... & asked for the vacancy in the 'Princeton Steamer'... and returned to Philadelphia, where in the course of three or four days came my orders but no recommendation to Commodore Connor to order me to the Princeton came with them. I place very great importance upon getting into this vessel during this war and at this time, having reached near that age when a man is a man." In endorsing himself for a new commission, he relies heavily on his experience gained during the Wilkes expedition, but has little positive to say about Wilkes himself: "I was for four years in the Exp … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moderate foxing, plates toned. Withal, a very good copy, in the deluxe binding. First edition of one of the classics in American gambling literature, in the publisher's deluxe binding. The author is Jonathan H. Green (1813-87), renowned professional gambler and, later, reformer. Green was a gambler who became a crusader against illegal gambling, and this work is a lurid expose of crime, cheating, and vice. In the introduction, Green says that this work is unlike any other he has ever written - unlike, in fact, any work ever before published in America: "It is not a mere exposure of gambling, nor yet an attack on the character of particular gamblers. It is a revelation of wide-spread organization - pledged to gambling, theft, and villainy of all kinds." Howes calls this a sequel to Green's GAMBLING UNMASKED. "Exposé of a secret organization of gamblers and criminals. Pages 147-62 relate his trip to Texas and the Choctaws in 1833" - Eberstadt. A rare work on early American gambling. HOWES G367.

"Prima ed unica edizione" di questa importante e rara biografia. “Il Malpighi (1628-94) fu uno dei più geniali anatomici che la storia ricordi e uno dei più coraggiosi innovatori della medicina. Difensore del metodo sperimentale dovette sostenere acerrime lotte da parte dei galenisti. Fu il primo a ricorrere al microscopio per lo studio sistematico delle varie strutture animali e vegetali e come tale è considerato il fondatore dell’anatomia microscopica. Nel campo della medicina egli portò a conclusione gli studi sulla circolazione del sangue, dimostrando l’esistenza dei capillari del polmone e migliorò le conoscenze sull’intima struttura di vari organi”. Così Diz. Treccani,VII, p. 308. Il fiorentino Lorenzo Bellini, medico anatomista e scrittore (1643-1704) fu primo medico di Cosimo III. Fresco esemplare, ben conservato.

HERSCHEL, Sir John F.W.
London: Published by Smith Elder and Co., Cornhill, 1847. Large 4to, 3 leaves, pp. (v-xx), 452, (2) errata, (2) adverts, lithographed frontispiece of the telescope and 17 engraved or lithographed plates (4 folding) mostly from drawings by the author. Original green blindstamped cloth, t.e.g. Half-title and final advert leaf browned, otherwise a fine and clean copy. FIRST EDITION of Herschel's monumental survey of the stars of the southern hemisphere, completing the task begun by his father William, who fifty years earlier had catalogued the northern celestial hemisphere. Herschel selected the Cape of Good Hope for the site of this project, and spent five years there. Using a 20-foot reflecting telescope brought from England, he swept the whole of the southern sky. By the time he left in 1838 he had catalogued 1,707 nebulae and clusters, and listed 2,102 pairs of binary stars. He carried out star counts, on William Herschel's plan, of 68,948 stars in 3,000 sky areas. He produced detailed sketches and maps of several objects,, including the Orion region, the Eta Carinae nebula, and the Megallanic Clouds, and extremely accurate drawings of many extragalactic and planetary nebulae. He recorded in detail the brightening behaviour of Eta Carinae in December 1837. Herschel invented a device called an astrometer, and with it introduced numerical measurements into stellar photometry. See DSB 6, p. 326 and ODNB for long accounts of Herschel's time in South Africa. Norman catalogue 1056. This was Herschel's magnum opus.
