        [SCOTLAND]. [CARTONNAGE BINDINGS]. Les trois freres ecossais

      Tours: A. Mame et Cie., 1847 & 1859. FIRST EDITION. Very Good. Together two vols. 8vo. Ad 1 (1847): FIRST EDITION, bound in the original publisher's "cartonnage" binding of white boards, richly embossed in gold and color; illustrated with six steel-engraved plates done by Adrien Charles Danois after Louis Marckl (bookplate removed). Ad 2 (1859) Sixieme edition, bound in original publisher's leather binding with "Cathedral" and "sacred hearts" motifs. It too contains the six plates by Danois after Marckl, bound in a different order. With prize bookplate to "Rosa Gonillon" dated 1861. Both volumes form part of the "Bibliothèque de la jeunesse chrétienne" series. Two excellent publisher's bindings for the curious story of "Les trois freres ecossais," both from the "A. Mame et Cie," the well-known publisher of French Cartonnage and decorated leather bindings. These were almost invariably issued as "Prizes" for deserving students as a reward for exceptional work (or exceptional piety). The binding style of these volumes was produced for only a short period of time in France, from 1840-1889. LITERATURE: Jan Storm van Leeuwen, "Franzosische Bonboniereband und die Firma Mame," in: Einband Forschung, Heft 24, April 2009, pp 67-77. NB: Both volumes here described were created by the Imprimerie Mame that Storm van Leeuwen describes. To produce the intricate design of the cover boards, a specially tooled metal plaque would have been heated, dipped into gilt ink, and pressed into the paper boards. The gilt pressed into the background, and the pink paper design raised up to have a very textural feel. A center "window" was cut out, and a chromolithograph depicting a scene from the text was placed inside. The chromolithograph process was employed at the time, and produced sharp and vivid colors with very detailed illustrations. In most instances the back covers were fashioned the same as the front, with the exception of a medallion plaque in the center. It is noteworthy that the present collection is of "provincial" manufacture, not Parisian: two of the books were printed and bound in Tours, the other two in Rouen. The story recounts the voyages and travels of three Scottish brothers as they circumnavigate the globe, with stops in New York, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and even to Mexico. IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, SUITABLE FOR EXHIBITION AND STUDY.

        On the inhalation of the vapour of ether.

      . London: The London Medical Gazette [printed by Wilson and Ogilvy], 1847. 8vo. 10 pp., two woodcut illustrations in the text. Printed front wrapper. Blind wrappers. Preserved in elegant 20th century half calf drop box; spine with five raised bads and gilt title.l The extremely rare offprint of the true first edition of John Snow's description and illustration of his breakthrough invention, the first apparatus, which could regulate the amount of ether vapour inhaled by the patient. The medical doctor Snow (1813-1858) was "an English physician and a leader in the adoption of anaesthesia and medical hygiene. He is considered one of the fathers of modern epidemiology, in part because of his work in tracing the source of a cholera outbreak in Soho, London, in 1854. Snow was one of the first physicians to study and calculate dosages for the use of ether and chloroform as surgical anaesthetics, allowing patients to undergo surgical and obstetric procedures without the distress and pain they would otherwise experience. He designed the apparatus to safely administer ether to the patients and also designed a mask to administer chloroform. He personally administered chloroform to Queen Victoria when she gave birth to the last two of her nine children" (Wikipedia). Snow first described his inhaler in this paper published in the London Medical Gazette, volume 4. Later in the same year he published a book in which he again described his revolutionary apparatus, which by then had been slightly modified. This is the Haskell F. Norman copy, with his small bookplate on the verso of the blind wrapper. Spine gutter with some japanese paper repairs; lacks last blank, otherwise very good, clean, and as described in Christie's catalogue of the Norman Library. Garrison-Morton, 5658; Norman 1965; Norman sale, Christies III, 1303 (this copy)..

      Ohne Ort, (Ca. 1847-55).. (34 x 22 cm). 33 (4 doppelblattgroße) Tafeln mit sehr fein ausgeführten kolorierten Federzeichnungen. Lose in einfacher moderner Karton-Mappe mit Bindebändern.. Ungewöhnlich qualitätvolle Zeichnungen ohne Hinweis auf die ausführende Person oder den Anlass. Sie könnten allerdings aus dem Besitz des ehemaligen Finanzministers und späteren Präsidenten des Großherzoglich Badischen Staatsministeriums Christian Friedrich von Boeckh (1777-1855) stammen, dessen Onkel Christian Gottfried Boeckh (1732-1792) Pfarrer in Nördlingen war und aus einer alten Nördlinger Theologenfamilie stammte. - Drei Karten mit Streckenabschnitten entlang der Strecken Bruchsal - Bretten (Weissbrod Mühle), Geislingen - Ulm (Schimmel- und Steig-Mühle) und Manneberg - Effretikon (Kanton Zürich).

Da die Strecke Geislingen-Ulm von 1847-50 gebaut wurde, die Strecke Bruchsal-Bretten von 1850-53 und die Strecke über Effretikon seit 1855 in Betrieb ist, stehen die vorliegenden Zeichnungen in engem zeitlichem Zusammenhang dazu. - Auf der Mappe ist ein handschriftliches Etikett mit den Angaben "Archiv der von Nördlingen stammenden Familie Boeckh, Linie D (Beckh). Württembergische und schweizerische Eisenbahn-Strecken-Profile 1850-1865" montiert. - Die Zeichnungen tragen die Beschriftung: Normalplan I-III, VI, IX-XXIV, XXVII, XXVIII, XXX, XXXII u.

One of the greatest names of French art.'" - Ray, p. 183 The fine watercolors here form a veritable gallery of the French Revolution, and include portraits of Mirabeau; Danton; Charlotte Corday; Robespierre; Marie Antoinette; Marat; C.

        Manuscript Letter Attempts to Conceal Activities and Addresses Early Prohition Law at the Beginning of 'Colonos' Slavery in Cuba

      Havana - Cuba, 1847. Significant and Early Slavery Document. Stamped official manuscript memorandum, 18 October 1847, from the office of the Supreme Civil Governor and Captain General of Cuba, penned by an unidentified Spanish official, pertaining to an inquest into a specific event of the illegal slave trade, which had occurred on the coast of Trinidad. 8vo. Double-leaf, measuring approximately 15cm x 20cm, bearing the official ink stamp of Gobierno Superior Civil, Ysla de Cuba Text is in Spanish. Separating at fold, otherwise in very good condition. Very early slavery document for Cuba, scarce and significant, in a lovely cursive hand. The letter whose author remains ambiguous, though clearly an administrator for the Civil Governor's office in Havana, is written during the rule of General Leopoldo O'Donnell, 1st Duke of Tetuan, Spanish Governor at Havana, who was himself an avaricious participant and oppressor in the slave trade, having tortured and executed thousands of slaves and free Blacks. Possibly sent to the royal court of Spain, and indirectly addressed to the teenaged Queen Isabella II of Spain, the writer is reporting on an incident of illegal slave trading activities of a ship landing in Trinidad, further remarking that consequences had been imposed. Its objective was clearly to assure, and ultimately mislead the young queen of Spain that the little island in the West Indies was indeed complying to and enforcing Spain's recent prohibition laws. British documents contradict his claim, indicating that a slave schooner transporting over two hundred Africans, including numerous children, landed at Trinidad, but had been sunk or set on fire to conceal the crime, in which the Governor himself is believed to have been implicated. In this same year, the first 800 Chinese coolie labourers first arrived in Cuba to serve the booming sugar and tobacco industries. In the following decade the trade continued to expand and exploit in unprecedented proportions. Excerpt from the document: "Prohibida la trata de escalvos y publicada la ley penal... observado en se Ysla... la voluntad de L.M. y mi decision de haier respetar sus mandatos ... hoy me obliga â veriterar una infracion que ha venida lugar en los costas de Trinidad... es la primera en tan largo periodo y no ha quedado impune; mas deseando que no se repita... que vigente aquella ley y resuelto" Attempt at translation: [The prohibition of the slave trade and the newly published criminal law... observed on this island.... the will of H.M. (Her Majesty?) and my decision to respect her mandate... today obligates me to investigate an infringement which has taken place on the coast of Trinidad... This is the first in such a long period, and it has not gone unpunished; the most desire that it will not repeat itself... that the current law will enforce and resolve...]. Manuscript.

        Journal of an Overland Expedition in Australia, from Moreton Bay to Port Essington.

      T. & W. Boone, London 1847 - Octavo, seven plates including frontispiece, vignettes, aside from some moderate foxing of the plates a fine copy in original publisher's cloth. A handsome copy of a pivotal document in the history of Australian exploration, here seen in the original publishers blind-blocked cloth. Ludwig Leichhardt's Journal of an Overland Expedition in Australia? documents one of the most unlikely and courageous ventures ever undertaken in the history of the continent.When Leichhardt arrived in Sydney in February 1842 he was considered learned but eccentric: he possessed no bush craft skills, had poor eyesight and was unable to shoot. Yet he proved a quick learner and launched successful forays as far north as Moreton Bay. For some years settlers had eagerly talked of finding a route from southern Queensland to the Northern Territory, so linking their abundant grazing districts with Asian markets. When a Government funded expedition stalled, Leichhardt headed his own venture funded by pastoralists and business-men impressed by the seemingly indefatigable German.What followed was one of the longest journeys of Australian inland exploration - a trek of stupefying distance, difficulty and endurance spanning 4,800 kilometres. The party was racked by interpersonal conflict, inexperience and continual hostility from local Aboriginal tribes (in late June 1845 one member was killed and two others seriously injured during a raid near the Gulf of Carpentaria). After fourteen months they finally reached Port Essington in the Northern Territory in a state of perilous exhaustion.When Leichhardt and his men returned to Sydney they had been given up as lost. Celebrations lasted for months and he was hailed 'the prince of explorers' and received a sizeable sum raised by public subscription. His scientific and geographic work was greatly admired during his lifetime, but his reputation as an expeditionary leader has been criticised since. Leichhardt's mercurial temperament and mysterious death during a later expedition have become part of the mythology of European Australia.This copy corresponds to the primary issue described in Australian Rare Books, with corresponding title lettered on the spine, publisher's advertisements and slip advertising the release of Jukes' Narrative of the Surveying Voyage of H.M.S. Fly. However, it includes an additional four pages of unpaginated advertisements at the rear: Australian Rare Books notes 'Various secondary issues of both primary and secondary bindings have been noted with different combinations of advertisements'.

        Mount Auburn Illustrated

      1847. SMILLIE, James. Mount Auburn, Illustrated in Highly Finished Line Engraving, From Drawings taken on the spot. With Descriptive Notices by Cornelia W. Walter. 119, [1] pp. Illustrated with additional engraved title-page, 1 full-page engraved map of Mount Auburn Cemetery, 17 full-page engraved plates of select monuments and views therein, and 5 full-page engraved plates depicting designs for monumental enclosures. 4to., 268 x 203 mm, bound in original publisher's deluxe green cloth with gilt-stamped and illustrated vignettes of stylized views of the Cemetery entrance, a.e.g. New York: Robert Martin, 1847. First Edition of this fundamental work on cemetery landscape design. Founded in 1831, Mount Auburn Cemetery represents the first large-scale designed landscape that was opened to the public. It is one of the finest examples of the rural cemetery movement. It has been designated a National Historic Landmark by the Department of the Interior, recognizing Auburn as one of the country's most significant cultural landscapes. Originally issued in parts under the uniform title "Rural Cemeteries in America" (1846-1847), the present volume is preserved in the original publisher's gilt-stamped green cloth binding. "Long before the professionalism of landscape architecture, new American cemeteries provided models of landscape taste and trained generations of landscape designers, producing lasting effects on our built environment" (Blanche Linden-Ward, American Landscape Architecture p. 121). The present volume provides a wealth of information on Boston's Mount Auburn cemetery, "the first 'rural' cemetery and prototype for many others" (ibid, p. 121). James Smillie was, in the words of David Stauffer, "an admirable line-engraver of landscape" who worked largely from his own drawings. The plates herein exhibiting a very high degree of execution and artistic sensibility. This copy features 2 additional plates of monument enclosure which are not called for on the list of plates. Slightest of wear to binding extremities, else a fine copy. Arts in America B570-1. See Stauffer I, p. 248.

        Journal of an Overland Expedition in Australia, from Moreton Bay to Port Essington

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1847. Octavo, seven plates including frontispiece, vignettes, aside from some moderate foxing of the plates a fine copy in original publisher's cloth. A handsome copy of a pivotal document in the history of Australian exploration, here seen in the original publishers blind-blocked cloth. Ludwig Leichhardt's Journal of an Overland Expedition in Australia... documents one of the most unlikely and courageous ventures ever undertaken in the history of the continent.When Leichhardt arrived in Sydney in February 1842 he was considered learned but eccentric: he possessed no bush craft skills, had poor eyesight and was unable to shoot. Yet he proved a quick learner and launched successful forays as far north as Moreton Bay. For some years settlers had eagerly talked of finding a route from southern Queensland to the Northern Territory, so linking their abundant grazing districts with Asian markets. When a Government funded expedition stalled, Leichhardt headed his own venture funded by pastoralists and business-men impressed by the seemingly indefatigable German.What followed was one of the longest journeys of Australian inland exploration - a trek of stupefying distance, difficulty and endurance spanning 4,800 kilometres. The party was racked by interpersonal conflict, inexperience and continual hostility from local Aboriginal tribes (in late June 1845 one member was killed and two others seriously injured during a raid near the Gulf of Carpentaria). After fourteen months they finally reached Port Essington in the Northern Territory in a state of perilous exhaustion.When Leichhardt and his men returned to Sydney they had been given up as lost. Celebrations lasted for months and he was hailed 'the prince of explorers' and received a sizeable sum raised by public subscription. His scientific and geographic work was greatly admired during his lifetime, but his reputation as an expeditionary leader has been criticised since. Leichhardt's mercurial temperament and mysterious death during a later expedition have become part of the mythology of European Australia.This copy corresponds to the primary issue described in Australian Rare Books, with corresponding title lettered on the spine, publisher's advertisements and slip advertising the release of Jukes' Narrative of the Surveying Voyage of H.M.S. Fly. However, it includes an additional four pages of unpaginated advertisements at the rear: Australian Rare Books notes 'Various secondary issues of both primary and secondary bindings have been noted with different combinations of advertisements'.

        Trio No. 1 in D minor for piano, violin and violoncello, opus 63. Autograph composing manuscript. Unsigned. [Dresden]. Inscribed by the composer "Trio (Skizze) and "Juni 1847" to upper margin of first page of music.

      - A highly significant manuscript of Schumann's important first Piano Trio in D minor, clearly demonstrating the composer's working methods and thus offering considerable insight into his creative process. The work dates from the height of Schumann's career, the year after his Second Symphony op. 61, and has become a staple of the chamber music repertory. "The greatest of [the three Piano Trios]., the first in D minor, op. 63 (1847), is a magnificent specimen of the romantic trio, on a par with one of its obvious models, Mendelssohn's in the same key." Walker, ed.: Robert Schumann, p. 216."Schumann viewed the creation of the Second Symphony as providing him with a beneficial catharsis. After its completion, he resumed composition with renewed vigor. He returned to chamber music, with his two piano trios published in 1848 and 1849 as his op. 63 and op. 80. The First Piano Trio op. 63 mirrors the mood of the Second Symphony. It too relates a program of struggle and melancholy to triumph. The first movement ("Mit Energie und Leidenschaft"), sets the stage." Jensen: Schumann, pp. 293-294.The Sammlung Wiede, assembled from the end of the 19th century into the early 20th, contained a large and important collection of autograph manuscripts of Schumann, including this manuscript of the Piano Trio op. 63 as well as that of the Piano Concerto op. 54.The present manuscript has heretofore been unavailable to modern scholarship; the only other autograph of the work, Schumann's fair copy executed for the printer, is currently inaccessible. Folio, approximately 300 x 230 mm. Unbound, with remnants of early sewing thread. 25 pages on 13 leaves. Notated in ink and pencil on 16-stave music manuscript paper. Preserved in a dark blue cloth folder with decorative gilt stamping to edges, dark maroon leather title label gilt to upper within decorative gilt border. Schumann's first continuous draft of three movements, substantially complete, in full score, short score and piano score, together with other sketches for the work, minus the third slow movement (apparently composed at a later date). With numerous autograph amendations, cancels, rewritings and additions; measure and page numbers added, including measure counts to margins as found in some other working manuscripts of Schumann. With an early exhibition label from the Schumann Museum in Zwickau laid in with manuscript notes identifying the work, date of composition, and the performers in a festival concert. Provenance: The Alfred Wiede Collection, Weissenborn, Germany.Some minor wear and browning but in very good condition overall. McCorkle p. 274, Ib. Eismann p. 17. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Sought after first edition and the plates have much less spotting than normal, so a nice copy. Charles James Lever (1806-1872) was an Anglo-Irish novelist, and friend of Thackeray. His novels tell the rollicking adventures of a number oflikeable heroes, while his easy, anecdotal style make them good light reading. Trollope praised him highly. This editionhas thirty-seven illustrations and a decorative frontispiece and title pagebyHablot K. Browne (1815-1882), known as Phiz, one of the foremost Victorian illustrators, whose work appeared in Punch. He is best known for his illustrations of Dickens' novels. The illustrations are collated complete. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with the boards and all internal pages securely attached. This volume has been veryprofessionally rebacked. There is some wear to the extremities includingfraying (particularly to the spine) and bumping to the corners. The title labelhas slight loss, although it doesn't effect the letters. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional brown spot or handling mark. The brown spotting is worst on the first and last few pages and worse on the plates, as unfortunately this type of paper tends to spot. The plates are spotted around the edges but generally thecentral picture is clean. Overall, the condition of this volume is very good..
