        Calmet's Dictionary of the Holy Bible:

      London - Henry G. Bohn 1847 - A beautiful trio of Augustine Calmet's biblical dictionary. Calmet (1757) was a French Benedictine monk and the first prominent Catholic theologian[to abandon]the allegorical and mystical method of interpretation, and[undertake] to give the literal sense of the Bible word. (JE)Calmet was alsothe author of numerous biblical reference texts, including Commentaire littral sur tous les livres de l'Ancien et du Nouveau Testaments (A literal Commentary on all the Books of the Old and New Testaments) and Histoire de l'Ancien et du Nouveau Testament et des Juifs. The value of this book lies not so much in its exegesis as in the dissertations attached to it, which treat such topics as Hebrew poetry, music, weights and measures, medicine, marriage customs, burial customs, military organisation, circumcision, the Sanhedrin, and Hebrew schools and sects, and are, for his time, remarkably full and judicious. (JE)With a frontispiece of Calmet to the first volume. With the Latin bookplates of the wealthyVictorian bankerJohn Naylor Leighton, who built Leighton Hall in Welshpool. The first three volumes of a total of five, with the absent volumes being the second half of the fragments and a book of plates. Bound by Clarke & Bedford. Condition: Uniformly bound in full tree calf. Externally, generally smart with some scuffs but also lovely patina to boards. Some wear to extremities and raised bands of backstrip, occasionally resulting in slight loss to leather. Two joints starting. Internally, firmly bound. Occasional spots to first and last few pages, elsewhere very bright and clean indeed, especially for books this age. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"By 1838 he had swept the whole of the southern sky, 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. Herschel made micrometer measures for separation and position angle of many pairs. He produced detailed sketches and maps of several objects, including the Orion region, the Eta Carinae nebula, and the Magellanic Clouds, and extremely accurate drawings of many extragalactic and planetary nebula" (DSB)..

As a young man, Lewis became a printer, and practiced this business while studying law. At 24, he passed the bar, and soon rose in his profession, as evidenced 2 years later when appointed Deputy Attorney-General of the State of Pennsylvania. Further, in 1832, he was elected a member of the state legislature. 1833 saw his appointment as Attorney-general, and in October that year, President Judge of the 8th Judicial district. In January, 1843, he was made president judge of the 2d district, in 1851 he was elected a justice of the State Supreme Court, and in 1854-7 was Chief Justice. This the one legalistic book published by this distinguished jurist- the 1873 first edition is quite uncommon, held by just 6 institutions [per OCLC].

Before its dark, dripping entrance stands a natural obelisk of weather-stained granite, and beyond, through an arch of Nature's turning, is seen the splash of a small but beautiful waterfall, whose music, solitary as the curlew's note, adds to the wildness of the scene."

        Mansfield Park: a Novel. [Bentley's Standard Novels and Romances]. 'EVEN FEWER IN ORIGINAL CONDITION' (Gilson)

      Richard Bentley, 1847. 8vo., with an engraved frontispiece (lightly offset to title), neat contemporary inscription on (blank) title verso; publisher's original series binding of chocolate-brown coarse-grained cloth, boards blocked in blind with an elaborate decorate frame, back elaborately blocked in gilt with pseudo-Royal arms surmounting a decorative descending foliate scroll, the whole enclosing (at top) the title, (at lower centre) the series imprint and (at bottom) the price, very neatly rebacked with old backstrip expertly laid down, wanting one very small lower portion of floral pattern but with all gilt and lettering remarkably bright and clean, uncut, original advertisement endpapers preserved, a lovely copy in the very scarce publisher's original binding. With the mid-nineteenth century decorative trade ticket of J C Dollman, bookseller and stationer, of Hove, Brighton on front paste-down. A mid-nineteenth century signature (not affecting advertisement text) has been neatly inked out at head of front paste-down.Issued as No. 27 in the well-known series 'Bentley's Standard Novels [and Romances]'. The first Bentley edition appeared in 1833 (Gilson D3) with a very similar re-issue in 1837. This copy has no half-title as usual: '[after 1841] reprints up to 1854, at least of the separate issues, generally dispense with the printed half-title and the engraved title' (Gilson, p.225). The terminal publisher's advertisements present in D3 are not called for or present here.Gilson notes (p.225): 'so few of these reprints survive in libraries, and even fewer in original condition, that the following details must be incomplete (I have recorded only those reprints of which I have located copies)'. However a variety of internal and external evidence points to this being an early printing of this issue, later than Harvard I but earlier than Gilson's own copy. Important factors are the full series backstrip, the mid-period price (3s.6d. rather than 5s. or 2s.6d.), the later-state Dublin imprint and the absence of the 'Morning Herald' panegyric at end.'Copies in original cloth are becoming uncommon, particularly so those in good condition; many copies were rebound at a fairly early date' (Gilson, p.213). The present, wonderfully preserved binding is Sadleir's No. 4 style; this copy would appear to match perfectly the Forster copy (now in the V&A Museum); see Sadleir, plate 9.A SPLENDID COPY IN PUBLISHER'S ORIGINAL CLOTH WITH VIRTUALLY NO TRACE OF THE USUAL OFFSETTING, FOXING OR AGE-MARKING.Gilson, D7 (specifically p.227); see also p.213, D3 (pp.218-220) and pp.225-6. .

      dalla Tipografia del Seminario 1847 In- 4°, pp. 157, (3), LII, bella legatura coeva in piena pelle alle armi, con stemma nobiliare al centro dei piatti. Lo stemma si presenta con bordura color oro, decorata da motivi fitomorfi, e scudo incassati rispetto al piano del piatto, con banda in pelle in rilievo. Ai piatti, filetto in oro ai bordi e fregi, sempre in oro, agli angoli. Al dorso, titoli, fregi e piccole fasce in oro. Tagli dorati. Unghiatura decorata all'interno da dentelles in oro. L'arma ai piatti, d'argento alla banda di nero, rimanda all'antico stemma della famiglia Renier di Venezia: ma medesime caratteristiche ha lo stemma delle famiglie Barbero di Bra, Gallamano o Gallaman di Asti e Cherasco, Sigismondi o Sismondi di Ponti ed Acqui, Palagnano di Trani. Qualche segno d'uso alla legatura. Con tre tavole fuori testo e alcune illustrazioni nel testo, in bianco e nero: le figure nel testo riproducono i disegni di mano del Sanudo relativi alla topografia di varie città sotto il dominio della Serenissima toccate nel corso dell'itinerario. Alle pagine, qualche leggero segno d'umido, pochissime fioriture, per il resto esemplare fresco e molto ben conservato. Rara edizione originale, in legatura di pregio. Si tratta del diario tenuto dal diciassettenne Marino Sanudo nel corso del viaggio compiuto al seguito del cugino Marco, con Piero Vitturi e Giorgio Pisani uno dei tre Sindici inquisitori inviati in missione dalla Repubblica di Venezia nei territori di terraferma ad essa assoggettati: la delegazione, partita dalla città lagunare, si diresse alle rive ferraresi del Po, per giungere ai confini del Ducato di Mantova e da qui al lago di Garda; attraversando poi il bresciano e il bergamasco, raggiunse il Trentino, per arrivare poi in Friuli ed, infine, in Istria. Un viaggio costituito da numerose tappe, tutte descritte e documentate con grande dovizia di particolari. Tra le località visitate Padova, Pieve di Sacco, Monselice, Este, Montagnana, Castelbaldo, Badia Polesine, Lendinara, Rovigo, Ficarolo, Castelnuovo, Melara, Legnago, Peschiera del Garda, Lonato del Garda, Brescia, Bergamo, Martinengo, Romano di Lombardia, Crema, Salò, Riva del Garda, Arco, Rovereto, Verona, Soave, Cologna, Lonigo, Vicenza, Marostica, Bassano, Cittadella, Noale, Mestre, Treviso, Asolo, Feltre, Belluno, Serravalle di Vittorio Veneto, Conegliano, Oderzo, Motta di Livenza, Portobuffolè, Sacile, Udine, Cividale del Friuli, Monfalcone, Marano, Aquileia, Capodistria, Pirano, Parenzo, Pola, Albona.

        For Peekskill, Verplanck, Grassy Point, Sing-sing, Tarry-town, Dobb's Ferry, Hastings & Yonkers. The New and Splendid Steamboat Columbus. Captain H. Tuthill

      New York:: H. Ludwig & Co., Printers, 72 Vesey Street,. Ca. 1847.. Very good condition. A bold early broadside advertising 'the splendid steamboat "COLUMBUS"' Captain H. Tuthill, with woodcut illustration of the steamboat under full steam, flags flying. The steamboat Columbus operated from the foot of Chambers Street, departing every morning except Fridays and returning from Peekskill the same day at 1pm, "landing at the Old State Prison Wharf, foot of Amos-street, each way". This stop, at Amos Street (now 10th Street), was the site of Newgate State Prison, New York's first prison, opened in 1797 and closed in 1829 when the inmates were sent up to Sing Sing. & & Captain Tuthill was an exemplary early steamboat captain, who began his career on the Hudson River in the early 1820s; the first steamboat on the Hudson was the North River Steamboat which left Paulus Hook Ferry on September 4, 1807, heading for Albany. There is an excellent description of Tuthill written in 1835, when he was captain of the "Union" on the identical run from Peekskill to New York. The description of Tuthill appears in Freeman Hunt's 'Letters About the Hudson and its Vicinity' (New York: 1835): "... I cannot forbear the present opportunity of alluding to the fine little steamer Union, which plies between New York and this village daily, landing passengers at Greenburgh, Yonkers, Tarrytown, Sing Sing, Grassy Point, and Caldwell's. Capt. Tuthill, of the Union, is an affable, courteous officer. He unites these qualities with great experience, having been connected with the Hudson River steamboats for more than twelve years. A few days since, a party of gentlemen presented him with a splendid silver pitcher, as a token of their respect for his private worth, and excellent conduct as a steam navigator. ...." The Columbus had a succession of captains in the early 1840s. An advertisement in the Highland Democrat (Peekskill) dated June 2, 1842, names a Captain F. W. Stone on the steamboat Columbus: "The fast sailing steamboat C O L U M B U S, Capt. F . W . S T O N E ." In 1847 the next captain of the vessel is a Capt. J. S. Odell ("Old Steamboat Days on the Hudson River", David Lear Buckman, New York: 1907). 11 x 14" on 13 1/4 x 16 3/4" sheet. RARE.

        The Princess; A Medley.

      London: Edward Moxon 1847 - First edition. 8vo. (iv), 164 pp. Publisher’s green cloth, gilt lettered to spine, blindstamped to boards, endpapers excised, inscribed by Tennyson to the Irish poet Aubrey de Vere on the half title, near contemporary pencilled annotations throughout correlating to the amendments made in the third edition, recent green quarter morocco clamshell box. Spine worn with loss at extremities, the more so to the head. De Vere (1814-1912) was an Irish poet of some small renown. He was introduced to Tennyson in 1842 and became a friend of the family, thereafter corresponding with both Alfred and his wife and making visits to their home. Wilfred Ward in his biography of De Vere quotes from his journal: "I went to Alfred Tennyson, who read me part of his "University of Women", and discussed poetry, denouncing exotics, and saying that a poem should reflect the time and place." The journal entry is dated May 10th, probably in 1845, two years before publication. The "University of Women" was a working title for this collection. Wise, 24.

        Plate 7. Cymindis Wilsonii, Cassin (Cuban Kite) From The Journal of the Academy of Natural Sciences

      Philadelphia: The Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences, 1847. First edition Fine with original hand-coloring A Fine original hand-colored lithograph. Folio (9.25 x 13 inches, 235 x 330 mm). The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia was established by the learned naturalists of high Philadelphian society in early 19th century America to document the recent natural discoveries of a new nation. The founding members, and contributors, were the luminaries of early American natural history and sciences; Titian Peale, Thomas Say and George Ord, to name a few. The Journal of the Academy of Natural Sciences was their clarion, and was illustrated with wonderful folio-sized hand-colored lithographs by J.T. Bowen and Co. in Philadelphia, America's premier lithographers of the mid-19th century, and the very same company to produce John James Audubon's landmark lithographs for the first seven Royal Octavo editions of the Birds of America (c. 1840-65) and both the Imperial Folio and Royal Octavo editions of the Quadrupeds of North America. (c.1840-54). In essence, the same artists and printers who produced Audubon masterful lithographs created this work. We classify these fabulous plates as one of the best unsung values in the art of 19th century ornithology. &

        Mining Manuscript Correspondence & Letters 1958 - 1969

      Book An extensive archive of manuscript letters, postcards, notes etc from A. K. Hamilton Jenkin; with lengthy and detailed typescript replies etc from Justin Brooke, relating to the Cornish Mining industry, in relation to the " Mines and Miners of Cornwall " series. The archive consists of approximately 20 postcards and 49 manuscript letters (mainly of two pages) in the hand of A.K.H.J, for instance, " I am now revising my St. Erth, St. Hilary, Breage "Part". I wonder if you have any M. J. [ Mining Journal ] extracts on Ennys Wheal Virgin. I have notes from a M.S. report of circa 1847 but little or nothing from the M. J." From Justin Brooke to A.K.H.J there is a large batch of typescript sheets of " minor amendments " ( to " Mines and Miners " ), Index of Mines, Map reference of Mines, etc. Also 81 typescript copies of letters from J. B. to A.K.H.J with copious amounts of information on Cornish mines and the mining industry, suggestions and information, for the " Mines and Miners " series. For instance, " the enlarged sett of Calstock Consols had an eastern boundary somewhere about the Kelly Railway line, since Spargo (1865 p.138) notes that a fine lode of gossan 23' wide had been cut by the company about 60 fms. west of the engine shaft, which rather suggests that the old Trelawny Consols sett, or the western part of it, was included in Calstock Consols. The last named continued to work until about 1866 . " All contained within an elegant custom made drop sided box. A.K.H.M published the highly respected series of 16 volumes of the " Mines and Miners of Cornwall," between the years 1961-70 this detailed correspondence covers this period. Justin Brooke who was proof reading the series, suggesting alterations and amendments, as well as contributing large quantities of original information, much of which only he had access to through his own large collection of books, manuscripts and maps relating to the Cornish mining industry. Justin Brook's popular work " Stannary Tales the Shady Side of Mining ", published in 1980, was dedicated " To A. K. Hamilton Jenkin who guided my steps "
