        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. Il viaggio toccò anche città non soggette al dominio veneziano, vale a dire Ferrara, Mantova, Trento e Pordenone.

        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. &

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 "

In addition to being an accomplished artist, Morse conceived of the telegraph in 1832 and developed a working model by 1837, though interest was not great in it. In May 1844, Morse sent his famous "What hath God wrought?" message from Washington to Baltimore. In addition Morse published the first American description of the daguerreotype in 1839 and became one of the first Americans to make daguerreotypes in the United States.

        Pictorial Illustrations of New Zealand

      London: John Williams & Co., Library of Arts, 1847. Folio. (15 x 10 3/4 inches). Engraved and aquatint frontispiece with integral vignette, 65 views on 21 aquatint and engraved plates (one double-page), by Henry Melville after Brees, 2 large folding engraved maps. (Some light spotting). Original purple cloth, covers bordered in gilt, the upper cover blocked with a decorative gilt panel containing the title also in gilt, cream glazed endpapers (rebacked, original spine laid down, inner hinges repaired). An excellent copy of the first edition of this important early work on the scenery and settlement of New Zealand. Samuel Charles Brees, a British engineer and surveyor, was appointed as the second Surveyor- General to the New Zealand Company in 1841. " During his term of office Brees was based in Wellington and was responsible for continuing the work of his predecessor, William Mein Smith, surveying the Karori Road and the hills surrounding Wellington Harbour. He oversaw the completion of the initial Wanganui and Manawatu surveys. In 1843 with Te Kaeaea he led an exploratory journey to the Southern Wairarapa through Upper Hutt and the Rimutaka range, and prepared the preliminary subdivisions of these areas.... By August 1844, six months before Brees's contract was due to expire, the New Zealand Company was in financial difficulties and no longer able to pay him. Throughout his period as principal surveyor he had given as much of his spare time as possible to his favourite leisure activity of recording his surroundings in pencil and watercolour. The ending of his employment freed him to devote more time to painting, while he settled his affairs and arranged for his family's return passage to England. He had produced a substantial portfolio of views of all the areas he had visited, particularly scenes in and around Wellington. These works would normally have become the property of the New Zealand Company, but the company waived its claim to them in the expectation that Brees would publish the sketches and be somewhat compensated for the loss of income he had suffered through the early termination of his contract. On 8 May 1845 Brees departed with his [family] ... for London. There, in 1847, Pictorial illustrations of New Zealand was published and excited much interest. Subsequent editions were published in 1848 and 1849. The volume consists of engraved illustrations of North Island scenes with the introduction and descriptive captions to each view written by Brees." (Marian Minson). There had been so much conflicting information about New Zealand, that in the introduction and descriptive matter, Brees "regarded it his duty to lay the results of his experience before the English public. The publication soon became popular and the large panoramas of the Port Nicholson and Hutt district in particular did much to attract emigrants from Britain. ... Brees must be considered as more than a topographical artist of town and bush, for some of his views, such as the 'Hutt Road Taken at the Gorge, Looking Towards Wellington', or his 'Kai Warra Warra Saw Mill' have considerable artistic merit; but the real value of his work lies in its unique historical interest. For Brees has given us an accurate pictorial record of the colonists of his day, their dwellings, farms, and clearings, as well as glimpses of the customs of the Maoris, their pas, habitations, canoes, and dress" (Encyclopedia of New Zealand).

        Drawing Heightened with Watercolour, Unsigned but Titled and Dated]: "Ascension 1847."

      1847 - 1847. Drawing ca. 21,5x30 cm (8 ½ x 12 in). Recently matted, the drawing is in very good condition. This historically important sketch most likely shows Fort Cockburn, the main British military installation on the island at the time. "Ascension Island is an isolated volcanic island in the equatorial waters of the South Atlantic Ocean, around 1,600 kilometres (1,000 mi) from the coast of Africa and 2,250 kilometres (1,400 mi) from the coast of South America, which is roughly midway between the horn of South America and Africa. It is governed as part of the British Overseas Territory of Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha, of which the main island, Saint Helena, is around 1,300 kilometres (800 mi) to the southeast. The territory also includes the "remotest populated archipelago" on earth, the sparsely populated Tristan da Cunha archipelago, some thirty degrees farther south and about half the way to the Antarctic Circle. The location of the island made it a useful stopping-point for ships and communications. The Royal Navy used the island as a victualling station for ships, particularly those of the West Africa Squadron working against the slave trade. A garrison of Royal Marines was based at Ascension from 1823" (Wikipedia).

        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.

        Twenty-eight photographs of Nantucket, circa 1890

      This is the personal album of H.S. Wyer, inscribed by him on the front pastedown. The albumen prints measure 4 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches, and depict Nantucket town and country, interior and exterior views. Many bear Wyer’s catalog numbers; some are annotated in a later hand, probably that of A.F. Smith, who has also written his name on the front pastedown. Here is what historian Edouard Stackpole says about Wyer. “The second of the century’s “big three” was Henry S. Wyer, born in Nantucket on January 21, 1847... His... interest in Nantucket, which was to guide his career, never wavered and in 1881 he began his work of photographing the streets, houses, and waterfront of his island home. This collection has since become an invaluable study of Nantucket - historically, architecturally and artistically. Henry S. Wyer was an artist and a writer, as well as photographer, as his work so often demonstrated.”

        PETIT MESSAGER DES MODES ET LE CONFIDENT REUNIS

      1847. Very Good. [FASHION - WOMEN'S - PERIODICAL] LE PETIT MESSAGER DES MODES ET LE CONFIDENT REUNIS: TOME VII, NOS. 1-17, 22-24; TOME IX, NOS. 1-13, 15-17. Paris: Imprim. Schneider et Langrand, 1847 and 1849. Thirty-six issues illustrated with 72 lovely hand-colored engraved plates, of which 33 are by Heloise Leloir and 12 by Laure Colin Noel. Quarto. Text: 2,7-136,169- 192; 104,113-128,121-128 pp. 10 1/4 by 7 in. Nineteenth-century binding: quarter black morocco, marbled boards, gilt title on spine, marbled endpapers. The binding is shelfworn, with top joint is starting and lower joint tender. The first issue is missing four text pages; otherwise, despite some misleading errors in pagination, all text is present. Most issues have a timbre royal mark (a French duty stamp) on one text page (but not on the plates). The plates are generally clean and fresh; however, there are a few exceptions: 1. - Both plates in Vol. VII, no. 1, have old paper repairs on the inner margin, and the top fore-corner of one has been clipped; 2. - The two plates in Vol. VII, no. 2, have been trimmed 1/4" shy of the fore-edge of the bookblock; 3. - One plate in Vol. IX, no. 15, which is the only horizontal image in the entire volume, has been trimmed to the top-edge of the image at the fore-edge. LE PETIT MESSAGER DES MODES was a bi-weekly publication, appearing on the 1st and 16th of each month, comprised of eight pages of text, that was to include 22 engraved plates and 3 large patterns in each six-month period. This volume is bound without any of the large patterns and, instead, an additional plate has been inserted wherever a pattern is called for. These `extra' plates have been supplied from issues that are not included in this volume. Although most issues are complete with text and appropriate plates together, there are twelve instances in this volume, including the plates-for-patterns substitutions, of plates being misbound or of a plate from another issue replacing the expected plate. And so, while the plates are lovely and in very good condition, it is for these reasons that the volume is offered as is.

        THE PRACTICAL RAILWAY ENGINEER

      London: John Weale, 1847. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 286 x 219 mm (11 1/4 x 8 5/8"). 2 p.l. (first blank), 157, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. Excellent recent retrospective grained calf, raised bands, red morocco label. With 50 double-page copper engravings showing railway plans, equipment, and environmental contexts, as called for. Handwritten card with a graph and calculations titled "Stationary Engine Minoris Terminus Blackwall Railway" mounted on front pastedown. Plates a little browned at edges, about half of them with minor foxing (more conspicuous on the final two plates), occasional minor smudges, thumbing, or short marginal tears, otherwise a really excellent copy, internally quite fresh, and in an unworn, attractive binding. This work by engineer George Drysdale Dempsey (d. 1859) tells how to build a railway, dealing at length with the mechanical and engineering operations and structures involved. It is divided into five sections, dealing with: (1) "curves, gradients, gauge, and slopes"; (2) "earth-works, cuttings, embankments, and drains"; (3) "retaining walls, bridges, tunnels, &c."; (4) "permanent way and construction"; and (5) "stations and their fittings, locomotive power and all arrangements belonging thereto, carriages, &c." The plates illustrate the text's discussion of the construction of bridges, drains, lines, and stations. The treatise went to four editions by 1855 and is considered to be a classic work. It is rare in any early edition: ABPC lists only four copies of our first edition (and two of the 1855 printing) at auction since 1975, just one of these having been sold in the last 30 years.
