        DESCRIPTION OF BANVARD'S PANORAMA OF THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER, PAINTED ON THREE MILES OF CANVAS: EXHIBITING A VIEW OF COUNTRY 1200 MILES IN LENGTH, EXTENDING FROM THE MOUTH OF THE MISSOURI RIVER TO THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS; BEING BY FAR THE LARGEST PICTURE EVER EXECUTED BY MAN

      Boston: John Putnam, 1847. 48pp. Original printed wrappers. Wrappers a bit soiled and dusty, front joint partially split, spine a bit chipped. Foxed and toned. Good plus. An extensive promotional description of John Banvard's famous three- mile panorama of the Mississippi River, the most successful exhibition of its kind. Large-scale visual exhibitions built around a single theme had been gaining in popularity since Louis-Jacques Mandé Daguerre's development of the diorama in Paris in 1822, but when Banvard's landscape behemoth arrived in Boston in 1846, a new age in public entertainment based on a shared visual event arrived with it. Banvard chose a topic with wide public appeal, and his scrolling profile of the romantic Mississippi River captured the attention and opened the purse strings of numerous patrons in Boston, New York, London, Paris, and beyond. Banvard's success was not grounded in any real artistic talent, but rather in the charming tales and anecdotes he told on stage that brought his collection of river scenes to life. The present text, in addition to the expected testimonials, includes scene-by-scene descriptions of the panorama itself. These descriptions offer textual evidence of Banvard's narrative performance and contain the real source of the panorama's power. These charming vignettes of provincial life along the mighty Mississippi set his visual extravaganza in context and, ultimately, made Banvard a wealthy man. HOWES B110, "aa." EBERSTADT 133:652.

        The Shoes of Fortune and Other Tales

      Chapman & Hall, London 1847 - We offer an attractive copy of the first English edition of a collection of stories by the famous Danish children's author. The book is bound in decorative green cloth with elaborate designs in gilt on the spine and with a decoration in gilt on the front cover of a dainty pair of shoes. The volume comprising 168 pages includes eleven stories in total; there is a frontispiece and three other full-page tinted lithographs plus some quaint engravings in text. The book has been skillfully recased with the original spine laid down on well-matched new cloth. The binding is slightly sunned on the spine - the gilt titling and decoration however remains very bright, as does the gilt decoration of the shoes on the front cover. There is a neat inked dedication at the head of the half-title page dated 1850. Our copy does have an original fault on page 37, whereby the paper had been creased in the press before it was printed. As a result, a section of the last five lines of the page appear on one fold of the creased paper. When unfolded, a gap appears between the main body of the text and the lines which have been printed by mistake on the corner of the page. The full-page sepia illustrations are quite heavily fox-spotted, showing mostly on the margins and on the reverse of the paper.Even so they remain attractive. Despite detailed points noted, this still remains a particularly fresh and pleasing copy as the elaborate gilt decoration is still so bright on the binding - and the book has been repaired with exceptional skill by highly regarded British binder Maureen Duke.

        Jane Eyre An Autobiography Edited by Currer Bell

      London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1847. 3 vols., 8vo, (iv), 304; (iv), 304; (iv), 311, (1) pp. half-titles present, lacking advertisements, pp. 260-268 bound out of order, occasional light foxing, far less than usually seen. Crushed green morocco extra by Samblanck-Weckesser, gilt top, triple gilt fillet, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, slipcase. Gilt-tooled leather bookplate in each vol. A lovely and unusually clean copy of this preeminent classic in a fine example of the elegant bindings demanded by early collectors. First edition with all headline and chapter heading issue points per Parrish. Charlotte Brontë's first published work and the most successful of all the Brontë sisters' novels. Published on October 19, 1847, in an edition of just 500 copies, the novel was an immediate success and was reprinted twice the following year. It was swiftly recognized as something new to fiction: an autobiographical, epistolary adventure in the tradition of Robinson Crusoe, but an adventure into interior consciousness, and into the mind of an orphaned, downtrodden woman at that. By itself it created a minor revolution in the art of the novel. It is among the most influential works of fiction of the nineteenth century, a key work of proto-feminism, and the inspiration for innumerable adaptations, retellings, and works of literary criticism. Grolier English Literature 167; Parrish pp.87, 99-155; Smith 2. Wise, I, p.72. Provenance: This copy, bound thus, sold in the French sale at Libbie's, April 23, 1901, lot 149, $150. From the estate of a private collector.

All volumes are bound in the original brown embossed cloth, with stylized gilt vignettes of fossil assemblages on the front covers and spines as well as gilt titling on the backstrips. Typically, most covers show only very light wear to the extremities and spine ends; some volumes have seen little handling. The gilt lettering and decoration on the covers is bold and bright. Most joints and hinges are fully intact, bindings firm. Backstrip on vol. 3, plates, relaid; staining to rear cover of vol. 8, part 2. Minor foxing in volumes one and two, but otherwise the texts and plates are near pristine: fresh, clean and bright. The only evidence of previous ownership in any of the volumes is an old armorial bookplate in volume one. Not ex-library. As Reese notes, these bindings generally were not adequate for the weight of the massive text blocks and plates, and it is most unusual to find these volumes in nice condition. A handsome, sound set of a now scarce treatise, bound in the original publisher’s cloth. I could not find any complete sets online. Prime 30-31. Reese, Cat. 215. BMNH 1423. Domestic and international shipping will be extra for this set, but only at my cost. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Die Architectur und ihr Verhältniß zur heutigen Malerei und Sculptur.

      Stuttgart und Tübingen Cotta 1847 - (21,5 x 13,5 cm). XXIV, 180 (1) S. Leinwandband der Zeit. Einzige Ausgabe. - Hübsch (1795-1863), Architekt und großherzoglicher Baudirektor, leitete über 20 Jahre die Karlsruher Bauschule und wurde dadurch zum führenden Architekten des Großherzogtums Baden. "In mehreren Schriften, deren bekannteste 1828 unter dem Titel 'In welchem Style sollen wir bauen?' erschien, hat er seine Theorien zu diesem 'Rundbogenstil' ausführlich dargelegt. Neue konstruktive Lösungen und die Einführung des unverputzten Backstein- und Werksteinmauerwerks zeugen für sein Streben nach Wirtschaftlichkeit und 'Wahrheit' in Konstruktion und Material. Charakteristische Beispiele dafür sind das Finanzministerium in Karlsruhe, die katholische Kirche in Bulach und die Trinkhalle in Baden-Baden. Sein Hauptwerk in Karlsruhe ist die Baugruppe um den Botanischen Garten mit Kunsthalle, Theater und der Orangerie mit den Gewächshäusern. Dazu kommt die 1854-58 erbaute Westfassade des Speyerer Doms" (NDB). - Titel mit zwei alten Stempeln, sonst sehr sauber und wohlerhalten

        Kitab Alf layla wa-layla (Hindustani).

      Kanpur (Cawnpore), Mustafai Press, 1263 AH [1847 AD]. - Large 4to (180 x 274 mm). 4 volumes bound as two. Lithographed throughout, with decorated title pages and a full-page floral illustration to the final page. (4), 276 pp. (duplicate set of pp. 121-124 inserted after p. 20). 284 pp. (p. 126 from book 3, verso blank, bound head-over-heels at the end). 214 pp. 196 pp. (with an index page "69" inserted at the beginning and end of the second volume). Contemporary full red calf with flat spines, painted entirely with floral oriental designs; both covers with inlaid gilt floral stamps. Very early and rare Hindustani (Urdu) version of the "Thousand and One Nights", translated by Munshi Adb al-Karîm. This was considered by J. F. Blumhardt, the cataloguer of the Hindustani books in the British Library and consultant to Richard Burton, the first complete version in Urdu, as a previous one, lithographed at Madras in 1836, comprised merely the first 200 "Nights" (Chauvin, however, cites an edition issued in Lucknow in 1828 as the first). Al-Karim's translation was based on Edward Forster's 1802 English version. "After two years' labour [.] the whole work [was completed] in AH 1258 (AD 1842). It was lithographed at the Mustafai Press at Kanpur (Cawnpore) in the year AH 1263 (AD 1847) and published in four vols., in two royal 8vos, lithographed; each containing two Jilds (or parts) [.] This translation is written in an easy, fluent style, omitting all coarseness of expression or objectionable passages, in language easily understood, and at the same time in good and elegant Hindustani. It is therefore extremely popular, and selections from the 4th Jild have been taken as text books for the Indian Civil Service examinations [.] There has been no attempt to divide this tranlation into Nights: there are headings to the several tales and nothing more" (Burton, quoting information supplied by Blumhardt). - Volumes 1 and 4 are dated in Arabic (and vol. 1 also in Latin). A few reinforcements. Some loosening of the sewing in book 2. Some worming, more pronounced in the 2nd volume, but mainly confined to margins. Several pencil annotations by an early 20th century scholar's hand in book 3. An appealingly bound copy. Chauvin IV, 20Y. Burton XIII, p. xi. Cf. Blumhardt, BM Cat., col. 36 (this edition not in the British Library). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Formal Logic or, The Calculus of Inference, Necessary and Probable.

      Taylor and Walton, London 1847 - TP + [iii]-vi = Preface + [vii]-xvi = Table of Contents + [1]-336 + [1]-8 = Publisher's ads. Octavo. First Edition. "De Morgan's work, which commenced in the 1840's, can be seen as the bridge between [the] older [Aristotelian] approach [to logic] and Boole's analytical formulation. Boole acknowledged his debt to De Morgan and Hamilton in the preface to his first logical work, 'The Mathematical Analysis of Logic' (1847)." (DSB under De Morgan). De Morgan's work, Formal Logic, published in 1847, is principally remarkable for his development of the numerically definite syllogism. The followers of Aristotle say that from two particular propositions such as Some M's are A's, and Some M's are B's nothing follows of necessity about the relation of the A's and B's. But they go further and say in order that any relation about the A's and B's may follow of necessity, the middle term must be taken universally in one of the premises. De Morgan pointed out that from Most M's are A's and Most M's are B's it follows of necessity that some A's are B's and he formulated the numerically formulated definite syllogism which puts this principle in an exact quantitative form. Suppose, for example, that the number of souls on board a steamer was 1000, that 500 were in the saloon, and 700 were lost. It follows of necessity, that at least 700 + 500 - 1000, that is, 200, saloon passengers were lost. This single principle suffices to prove the validity of all the Aristotelian moods. It is therefore a fundamental principle in necessary reasoning. Here then De Morgan had made a great advance by introducing quantification of the terms. Interestingly, the book is printed throughout using the "long s" (the eighth word in the book's title is, for instance, printed as Neceffary) - a practice that had been generally abandoned by British printers more than 50 years earlier. Publisher's later cloth binding (the six pages of ads present at the end of the book are dated November, 1853) with a printed spine label with faded gilt lettering. The terior is clean, tight and bright. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        ARGUMENT OF WILLIAM H. SEWARD, ON THE LAW OF CONGRESS CONCERNING THE RECAPTURE OF FUGITIVE SLAVES [wrapper title].

      Albany. 1847. - 40pp. plus errata slip. Dbd., retaining original front printed wrapper. Minor dust-soiling to front wrapper, light edge wear. Mild foxing to a few leaves. Overall good plus. A rare Supreme Court argument against the Fugitive Slave Law, given before the Supreme Court by William H. Seward in 1847. The work is variously listed under its wrapper title, as we have it, or by the information on the titlepage, which reads, "In the Supreme Court of the United States, John Van Zandt, ad sectum Wharton Jones. Argument for the Defendant. By William H. Seward." Here, Seward represents the defendant, John Van Zandt of Ohio, who was sued by Wharton Jones of Kentucky, who claimed Van Zandt was harboring a fugitive slave who rightfully belonged to him. The text records Seward's argument in front of the Supreme Court, which he divides into four points. In the first two points, Seward argues specific aspects of the case before him. In Seward's last two points, he challenges the Constitutionality of the 1793 Fugitive Slave Act itself. The titles of points three and four are, respectively, "The Law of 1793 is in Conflict with the Ordinance for the Government of the Territory Northwest of the Ohio, passed in 1787, and is therefore void" and "The Law of 1793, so far as its provisions affect the questions now before the Court, is Unconstitutional and Void." William H. Seward was a prominent lawyer from New York, and served as governor of the state from 1839 to 1842. He later served as the Senator for New York, 1849-1861 before serving as President Lincoln's Secretary of State from 1861 to 1869. In-between his governorship of New York and serving in the Senate, Seward continued to practice law, and the present work concerns one of his more notable cases during that time. Seward and his wife, Frances, were ardent abolitionists who participated in the Underground Railroad, opening their home in Auburn, N.Y. to escaped slaves. This earlier case, in which Seward argues not only against enforcement of the Fugitive Slave Act, but against its very existence, is consistent with his later activities against slavery itself. Salmon P. Chase had represented Van Zandt in this case at the circuit level. Chase was unable to travel to Washington, however, to argue the case in front of the Supreme Court. Chase employed Seward to present his brief to the court, entitled RECLAMATION OF FUGITIVES FROM SERVICE, along with Seward's own argument, represented in the present work. "Seward's brief is almost devoid of the antislavery arguments offered by Chase. He is somewhat more legalistic and much briefer in his points and citations" - Finkelman. Scarce in institutions, and rather rare in the marketplace. DUMOND, p.101. FINKELMAN, pp.70-75. SABIN 79504.

        ELECTORS OF THE WESTERN DISTRICT! READ AND CONSIDER!! AT A MEETING OF GENTLEMEN OF THE WHIG PARTY, AND OF CITIZENS GENERALLY, FAVORABLE TO THE ELECTION OF HON. WILKINS UPDIKE, TO CONGRESS, HELD AT KINGSTON COURT HOUSE, AUG. 11, 1847 [caption title]

      [N.p., likely Kingston or Providence, R.I., 1847. Broadside, 19 x 12 1/2 inches. Old folds, some toning in lower region, mild edge wear. Very good. [with:] [J.W. Richmond]: FACTS RELATIVE TO THE POLITICAL AND MORAL CLAIMS OF WILKINS UPDIKE, FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE WHIG ELECTORS OF THE WESTERN DISTRICT. Providence. 1847. 16pp. Gathered signatures, stitched. Mild toning and foxing. Very good. A rare anti-Mexican War and anti-slavery broadside touting the Whig candidacy of Rhode Island historian Wilkins Updike for Congress in 1847. The broadside summarizes various speakers at an anti- political rally, and rails against the Mexican-American War and slavery. It reads, in part: "What then are the measures of the democratic party, which you vote for and endorse by giving a vote for Gov. Thurston? Do you not by so doing approve of the present unjust and wicked war with Mexico, a war begun by President Polk alone without the sanction of Congress, and which Congress were afterwards reluctantly brought to vote supplies for?.... But it was not merely the amount of public money squandered in this war, it was not even the great danger to the liberties of the country from the enormous and unconstitutional powers claimed by the President, and from the system of corruption which prevailed in the administration - there was a more momentous consideration than even all these - that was the object for which the war was carried on - the EXTENSION of SLAVERY!!" The text continues by giving an accounting of the costs of the Mexican-American War - both the appropriations already spent and also what the Congress might be expected to spend to continue the war in the future. In short, the war has cost over $80,000,000 so far, and Congress should expect to spend more than $50,000,000 more just in the next session should the war continue. The accompanying pamphlet, FACTS RELATIVE TO THE POLITICAL AND MORAL CLAIMS OF WILKINS UPDIKE, FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE WHIG ELECTORS OF THE WESTERN DISTRICT, provides a counter-argument to Updike's candidacy for Congress. Just half of one paragraph on the first page sums up the writer's opinion of Wilkins Updike: "It will first be shown by incontrovertible evidence, that from political considerations alone, he is unworthy of the support of the electors of the state of Rhode Island. What has been the political life of Mr. Updike? Has he been true and consistent on any political principle? Has he been true to any political party? It is known full well to every man, that he has not. So frequent have been his political somersets, that all have feared to trust him with office." The broadside is particularly rare, with only three copies in OCLC, at the New-York Historical Society Library, the American Antiquarian Society, and Williams College. The pamphlet is rather common, but provides an interesting political counterpoint to the broadside. Taken together, an interesting pair of political campaign documents that encapsulate the roaring debate on the Mexican-American War and what it meant for the expansion of slavery in 1847. Electors: OCLC 58787939. Facts: SABIN 71144. OCLC 23352383, 504352127.

        Digest of Evidence taken before Her Majesty's Commissioners of Inquiry into the State of the Law and Practice in Respect to the Occupation of Land in Ireland.

      First Edition. Two Volumes. Dublin, Printed by Alexander Thom for Her Majesty's Stationary Office, 1847 / 1848. 21 x 13 cm. Part 1: viii, 702 pages. With three foldouts and numerous tables / illustrations in the text. / Part 2: viii, pages from 703 to 1172. With two foldouts and tables. Original dark green textured cloth. Hard cover with gilt titles on spine. Very good condition. Corners, boards and spine slightly ruubed and bumped. Spine darkened to brown. Joints started to crack in places, but binding remains sound. Some dust dulling. Mild foxing,mainly to end papers, first and last few pages. Very few pencil underlinings, otherwise internally very clean. The Devon Commission (officially ‚Commission on Occupation of Land (Ireland)') was a commission that was appointed by Sir Robert Peel to research the problems with land leases. It was formed in 1843 and reported 1845. This was a positive step for the government as it made the Irish believe that reform would come soon afterwards. This was the first time that a British government had taken a step towards reforming the unfair leases. The Devon Commission was headed by William Courtney, the 10th Earl of Devon, and it reported in 1845 that the population of Ireland had exploded from 6 million people to close on 8 million people. Similarly, they concluded that the leases were unfair and were favorable to the landowners (who were usually Anglo-Irish). The majority of Irish tenants had no form of protection, they could be, and often were, summarily evicted. The Devon Commission had wide reaching consequences and though too late to prevent the famine, it did galvanize change afterwards. (Wikipedia). From the Introductory Chapter: ‚The whole of that vast mass of evidence taken by the commissioners in reference to the mutual relation existing between the proprietors and occupiers of land in Ireland, is at once conclusive, painfully interesting, and the most portentous in its character. It proves that the safety of the country, and the respective interests of both those classes, call loudly for a cautious but immediate adjustment of the grave questions at issue between them'.
