      Boston: James Munroe and Company, 1847. Boston: James Munroe and Company, 1847 . Finely bound in crushed dark brown Morocco by Whitman Bennett, with five raised bands to the spine, lettering in gilt, gilt turn-ins, laid endpapers. A fine copy, with a hint of wear to the outer hinges, bright and clean pages, lacking the publisher's advertisements. Overall, a beautiful and fresh copy. BAL 5211. Poems is Emerson's first published collection of poetry, and includes the poems "Uriel," "The Sphinx," "The Humble-Bee," "Xenophanes," "Bacchus," and "Thine Eyes Still Shine," among others. Emerson is considered to be a leader of the Transcendentalist movement, which developed in New England during the 1820's-1830's. By the late 1840's, the once-united Transcendentalists began to splinter regarding their opinions on how to address the problems they saw with society and intellectualism. Emerson, like his contemporary and close friend Henry David Thoreau, believed that to change society, individuals must first train themselves. This mentality is evident in Poems, where Emerson breaks away from traditional poetical forms and structures, instead choosing to place emphasis on the role of a poet as a trendsetter who can change his readers' personal ideologies.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.

One of a series of 26 views published in 1847 to commemorate Queen Victoria's visit to Jersey, lithographed by Day & Son, lithographers to the Queen. "On a wild sea-beaten rock are the remains of what once was the cell of St Helier, the hermit. This holy man met his death from the hands of a band of Norman pirates, whose ferocity he attempted to rebuke and whose idolatries he denounced; receiving for answer the blow of a battle-axe, he died a martyr. In the Drawing the hermitage and surrounding rocks are shewn at low tide, under the effect of a coming storm.

Hadermann, W. Hieronymi, Hoffmann von Fallersleben, H. König, Wilhelm Sauerwein u.a. Herausgegeben von Eduard Duller.,

      Frankfurt am Main, Johann Valentin Meidinger 1847-1850. - Eduard Duller war ein 1809 in Wien geborener, 1853 in Wiesbaden gestorbener deutsch-österreichischer Autor, Historiker und Geistlicher, der bereits im Alter von 17 Jahren als Dramatiker an die Öffentlichkeit trat. Die Demagogenverfolgung im Österreich der Metternich-Ära ließ ihn im Jahr 1830 nach Deutschland auswandern, mit verschiedenen Stationen: München, Trier, Frankfurt am Main, Darmstadt und Mainz. In Frankfurt gab er die Literaturzeitschrift "Phönix" heraus, die, von Karl Gutzkow besorgt, Vorabdrucke von Schriften Georg Büchners und Christian Dietrich Grabbes sowie anderer Autoren des Vormärz zum Druck brachte. Duller war gleichfalls der erste Biograph Grabbes und machte durch ein kritisches Werk über die Jesuiten von sich reden. In den vorliegenden Bänden sind um das Revolutionsjahr 1848 herum zahlreiche Kurzbiographien gesammelt, die zum revolutionären Zeitgeist passten und sich wohl im gleichen Sinn auf eine kritische oppositionelle Tradition beriefen wie eine solche zu gründen suchten.

Nachdem Rotteck 1818 den Lehrstuhl der Geschichte mit dem der Staatswissenschaften und des Naturrechts vertauscht hatte, veröffentlichte er 1829 - 1836 in vier Bänden sein Lehrbuch des Vernunftrechts, ". von dem er sich eine, die bis dahin fast unerhörten Erfolge seiner 'Weltgeschichte' noch überbietende Wirkung auf die öffentliche Meinung der Zeitgenossen versprach. Dies war indeß eine Täuschung. Die Ideen Rousseaus, auf dessen Fiction des 'Gesamtwillens' die Rotteck'schen Theorien beruhten, waren längst überholt ."

        The Lay of the Purple Falcon; a Metrical Romance, now first printed from the Original Manuscript, in the Possession of the Hon. Robert Curzon

      Four large woodcut headpieces. Title printed in red & black. xiv, 22 pp. 4to, orig. red morocco (slightest rubbing to extremities), triple gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, black leather lettering piece on spine, dentelles gilt. London: Printed by W. Nicol, 1847. A poem in archaic style, professing to be a translation of a manuscript at Parham, Curzon's country estate, giving the "edifying and adventurous history of Sir Claudius Pantagruel." The earlier part was supposedly written by Reginald Heber (1783-1826), Bishop of Calcutta, using the name "Reginaldus Episcopus C----" and the text was completed by Robert Curzon (1810-73), writing under "Robert the rhymer." The book, a rare spoof on antiquarian activities, was privately printed for distribution to Curzon's friends. Inscribed on the free front endpaper: "Only 30 Copes printed. Wm. Nicol." This copy also bears the presentation inscription from Curzon to William Grey, dated 6 November 1847. With the armorial bookplate of Ralph William Grey. Fine copy. ❧ Martin, Privately Printed Books, p. 524-incorrectly stating that 31 copies on paper were printed. .

"Wilkinson's greatest published work was Manners and Customs of the Ancient Egyptians (1837), a profusely illustrated description of ancient Egyptian society. Drawing upon his work in the tombs at Gurna, Wilkinson was able to present a poignant picture of daily life in ancient Egypt that instantly caught the popular imagination. Praised by one reviewer as a ?restoration to life, as it were, of the ancient Pharaohs, and their subjects? (QR, Jan 1839, 120), it passed through many editions, influencing generations of English-speaking readers, " (DNB). Provenance: Armorial bookplates of Edward Huth. Very good copies, extremities rubbed, one volume with top fore-corners bumped and worn with minor loss, labels with some chipped edges, owner's bookplate on front pastedowns, binding solid, contents fine. A beautiful set.

"[Herschel] arrived in Cape Town on 15 January 1834 and set up a private 21 ft (6.4 m) telescope at Feldhausen at Wynberg. Amongst his other observations during this time was that of the return of Comet Halley. Herschel collaborated with Thomas Maclear, the Astronomer Royal at the Cape of Good Hope, and the two families became close friends. Herschel returned to England in 1838, was created a baronet and published 'Results of Astronomical Observations made at the Cape of Good Hope' in 1847. In this publication he proposed the names still used today for the seven then-known satellites of Saturn: Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Titan, and Iapetus. In the same year, Herschel received his second Copley Medal from the Royal Society for this work". This volume is in very good condition. It has been professionally rebacked in brown cloth, retaining the original ribbed brown cloth boards with their extensive blind stamp decorations.

      Boulé, Paris 1847 - In-8 (249 x 162 mm), 5 fois 34 pp. Maroquin rouge, double filet à froid encadrant les plats, dos à nerfs orné en caisson du chiffre couronnéd'Hervey de Saint-Denys, date en pied, double filet doré sur les coupes, large dentelle sur les chasses, tranches peignées à l'imitation des gardes, petites taches sur es plats (R. Petit, 1852). Édition originale de la traduction française. Avoir "le poil de la prairie" désigne une personne récemment sortie de son village, qui ne connaît pas les usages du monde. Cette expression a pour origine les chevaux de la campagne qui vivent continuellement au milieu des pâturages, et dont les crins ne sont jamais taillés Cette comédie espagnole en 5 actes de Breton de Los Herreros fut représentée pour la première fois à Paris le 24 avril 1847. Elle donne à rire des tribulations de Don Frutos, brave campagnard aragonais complètement dépaysé à Madrid, qui préfère sa peau de mouton aux habits élégants et la musique de ses chiens dans la montagne que d’aller bâiller à l’opéra. Se heurtant à chaque pas contre les exigences de la civilisation, il finit par briser ce réseau de séductions perfides dont l’entoure une femme ruinée pour lui faire épouser sa fille. Le renouveau de la comédie espagnole. Breton de los Herreros (1796-1873) est né dans un petit village des frontières de la Navarre. Il fut un des plus ingénieux promoteurs du renouveau de la comédie espagnole. ‹‹ Breton de los Herreros offre de nos jours, en Espagne, le type rajeuni de la comédie spirituelle, vive et mordante, qui néglige l’action pour se jouer dans les détails, qui éblouit par l’inépuisable abondance de la moquerie et par la variété des tons, qui surprend par la promptitude et la justesse du trait, et fait jaillir la gaieté comme une étincelle imprévue, — de la comédie, en un mot. ›› Charles de Mazade. En cinq exemplaires. Ce volume est composé de 5 exemplaires du même ouvrage, tiré chacun sur un papier de couleur différente. Blanc, jaune, vert, turquoise et bleu. L'exemplaire du traducteur. Ce recueil porte au dos de la reliure les chiffres "HSD" du traducteur Hervey de Saint-Denis, surmontés de sa couronne de marquis et du buste d'un centaure armé de son gourdin. Marie-Jean-Léon Le Coq, baron d'Hervey de Juchereau, marquis de Saint-Denys, né le 5 mai 1822 à Paris où il est mort le 2 novembre 1892, fut un important professeur de langues et civilisations chinoises, a traduit des ouvrages espagnols et fut passionné par ses recherches personnelles sur les rêves et le sommeil.

      Camp near Monterey, Mexico. July 13, 1847.. 3pp. plus integral address leaf, postmarked. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Minor loss on third page from wax seal, later paper repair on verso. Some toning and bleedthrough. Very good. Letter written by General Zachary Taylor to his Cypress Grove plantation overseer, Thomas W. Ringgold, regarding recent developments in the Mexican War and concerns for his plantation, together with a true copy of previous letter from Taylor to Ringgold on similar matters. Taylor opens his letter with his anxieties about that year's cotton and corn crops on his Mississippi plantation: "It appears that our misfortune follow[s] everything connected with my planting operations in rapid succession, so much so that I begin to doubt if I shall again succeed in making a crop or in fact anything else as the fates appear against me in that way, but it is useless to complain of things we cannot control or avoid & must try if we cannot to do the best to get on as well as we can...." Taylor goes on to discuss the "things we cannot control" - an insect infestation in the corn crop. He continues, mentioning the "servants" -probably meaning the slaves: "Seven months of the twelve will have passed away by the time or before this reaches you, so that but little can be done other than to take care of the establishment & prepare for a new crop the next four. I hope you have succeeded in getting the stock back from the hills without losing much of it, & that there is grass enough in the swamp to sustain the cattle at least. If the drought continues ten days after you wrote, you cannot expect to make either corn or cotton. I was very much pleased to hear that you & the servants continue to enjoy good health, which if it continues to be the case it will compensate for many other misfortunes. My distance from you & my entire ignorance of everything connected with the establishment forbids my making any suggestions in relation to it; & must leave everything to your good judgment as everything is before you, being satisfied that everything will be done by you for the best." Taylor then moves on to news of the war, complaining of the current state of inactivity and waiting: "We have nothing of importance in this quarter, we have been for the last four months doing but little more than discharging the two last months volunteers & waiting reinforcements, which have not yet arrived in sufficient numbers to enable me to make a forward movement against the enemy, nor am I certain that we will be able to do so; of this, time must determine. We have not heard from Genl. Scott for some time, but presume he is in the City of Mexico by this time or before if steps have not been taken to bring about negotiations for peace between the two countries. If the City has been taken possession of, which I think quite likely, whether it will result in bringing about a peace time alone must determine. I am heartily tired of inaction. I would greatly prefer active duty in the field, than remaining pretty much inactive in Camp; if the war is to continue I would prefer doing somewhat if ever so little to aid in bringing it to a close. The difficulty between Mr. Hasan & myself is to be settled by arbitration on the first of Dec. or as soon after as practicable; I do not wish it put off if Mr. Thornton comes down, but it cannot be gone into without he is present. But I presume he will attend if Capt. Allison will notify him, which I make no doubt he will do. If I am not able to return by that time, & Mr. Thornton is present he will attend to the matter as he can explain the whole transaction, and get the individual or individuals who are to act for me to do so." Taylor purchased the plantation of Cypress Grove in 1842, along with its eighty- one slaves. Thomas Ringgold served General Taylor as overseer of the 1,923- acre plantation, located on the banks of the Mississippi River, beginning in 1845. The two men became close acquaintances, and Ringgold remained Taylor's overseer for the duration of Taylor's ownership. This letter shows that even while fighting in the Mexican War, Taylor kept a close eye on his plantation. Taylor shows similar concerns in the two-page true copy (made in the 20th century) included here. Dated Nov. 10, 1846, from Monterey, Mexico, the future president writes instructions to Ringgold, particularly concerning the cotton crop, but he also includes hope for other plantation staples, such as hogs, ("I hope your hogs will turnout better than you expected, & will go a conservable way in feeding the servants"), sheep, and vegetables. He notifies Ringgold of Mrs. Taylor's upcoming visit- her first- to Cypress Grove and includes information about a slave named Nanny. At the end of the true copy, Taylor writes of events at the front of the Mexican War: "We are getting supplies as fast as possible from the Rio Grande, preparatory to a move further into the enemies country, & awaiting orders from Washington." An interesting letter revealing the domestic side of the general and future president.

        Observations on the Temple of Serapis. . .

      Privately printed 1847 - Inscribed to Antoine-Cesar BecquerelBabbage, Charles. Observations on the Temple of Serapis. . . . Privately printed, 1847. Original red cloth, with gilt motif of temple on front cover, partly unopened, insignificant cracking in upper parts of hinges. 42 [4, advertisements]pp. 2 lithographed plates (1 partly hand-colored) and text illustrations. 222 x 138 mm. Provenance: Inscribed by Babbage on verso of endpaper: "A M. M. Becquerel [i.e., Antoine-Cesar Becquerel (1788-1878); name effaced but still faintly legible] Membre de L'Institut de France from the Author." First edition. Babbage's scientific interests did not confine themselves to mathematics, economics, and computation, but ranged over a wide variety of subjects, including astronomy, electricity and magnetism, physics, and geology. This paper reported his observations on the Temple of Serapis, an ancient ruin situated on the seacoast near Naples that Babbage studied during his 1828 European tour. From the strata in which [the temple] was embedded and encrustation on the marble columns [Babbage] was able to estimate the sea level at various earlier dates. . . . [In March 1834] Babbage read a paper to the Geological Society on his observations together with a theory of the movement of isothermal surfaces within the earth. He sought to prove that large tracts of the earth's surface subside through the ages, whilst other portions rise irregularly at various rates (Hyman 1982, 71).An abstract of Babbage's paper was privately printed the same year (see Van Sinderen 1980, no. 48); however, Babbage did not allow full publication until 1847, when he had the paper privately printed with some additions (including a brief bibliography of his publications). Babbage's isothermal theory was significant for Charles Lyell, who used the figure of the Temple of Serapis for the frontispiece to his Principles of Geology (1830); and for John Herschel, who came up with the theory of geosynclines, for which he and Babbage are often given credit together. As the key image for a certain kind of geological movement, the Temple of Serapis was later analyzed in great detail by Suess in his development of global tectonics.Babbage presented this copy to the physicist Antoine-Cesar Becquerel, of the noted French scientific family whose members also include Antoine-Cesar's grandson Henri Becquerel (1852-1908), discoverer of radioactivity. Antoine-Cesar Becquerel made contributions to mineralogy, electricity, and chemistry, investigating the electrical effects of compression and heat on minerals, synthesizing mineral substances, and demonstrating that electricity can be generated by the contact of dissimilar bodies only under certain conditions.

Written by Sau Kau-Too, and compiled by J[onathan] Wade."

      "Karen Mission Press, C[ephas] Bennett" Tavoy: "Karen Mission Press, C[ephas] Bennett". 1847-50. "First and only edition, 4 volumes, 8vo, volume 1 with an English title-p. and a 2-p. English preface by Wade, the others with a title-p. in English; the text throughout is in Karen; full original calf in varying hues, each with gilt-stamped titles and vol. designation numbers on the spines, the top panel of the fourth volume chipped away, a number of signatures sprung in vol. III, all vols. somewhat shaken, worn and occasionally stained. Jonathan Wade was an American missionary born in 1798. American missionaries first arrived among the Karen tribes in 1828. It was apparently impracticable for them to set up a printing-press in the wild country of the Shan states, but they did so several hundred miles farther south, at Tavoy, in the Tenasserim province. [The first book of the press appears to be Wade's own Karen dictionary (Tavoy ca. 1842-44).] In 1846 the Rev. Cephas Bennett published there An Anglo-Karen Vocabulary. But he was not the first pioneer to set the Karen language down on paper, for we are told that Karen was ""never written till Dr. Wade, an American missionary, reduced it to writing using the Burmese consonants. The Karens thus have no written literature"" (The Spread of Printing, Eastern Hemisphere, p. 87). This set, then, represents the first printed appearance of the body of Karen literature. A compelling set of a rare work."
