         The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

      T.C. Newby, Publisher, London 1848 - FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE. Three-quarter green morocco over cloth with marbled endpapers. Bound without the terminal ad leaf in Volume One but retaining the rare and important half-title to that volume (none called for in Volumes Two and Three). The half-title has been strengthened at the inner margin, and a closed tear at the inner margin of the final text leaf of Volume One has been repaired, with no loss of text. Anne Brontë's second and last novel, and her only separate publication. It tells the story of Helen Graham who, in defiance not just of convention but of the law, flees her abusive, alcoholic husband and takes up residence in the titular hall where she supports herself and her son by painting. Women at the time had no legal existence apart from their husbands. According to collector and bibliographer Michael Sadleir, this title is the rarest of all the Brontë sisters' novels, rarer even than Wuthering Heights of which it is supposed there were between 250 and 350 copies printed. An important book and a true rarity. Smith, Brontë, 4.

         Views of Calcutta and its environs

      Dickinson & Co, London 1848 - (27 1/4 x 19 3/4 inches). Lithographed throughout. Hand-coloured title and 27 views on 25 leaves by Dickinson & Co. after d'Oyly (one folding, all heightened with gum arabic). Publisher's red cloth-covered boards, the upper cover blocked in gilt with a large architectural vignette incorporating the title, expertly rebacked and retipped with red morocco, the flat spine divided into five compartments by single thick fillets, titled in the third compartment, marbled endpapers A fine copy of the rare deluxe hand-coloured issue of Sir Charles d'Oyly's masterpiece According to Abbey this work was published for 6 guineas plain and 10 guineas hand-coloured, as here. The very fine hand-colouring of the deluxe issue adds a depth and vibrancy to the scenes that is mostly lacking from the uncoloured version. In our experience, copies with genuine contemporary hand-colouring were always bound in red half morocco by the publishers. (The Abbey copy is in green half morocco and hand-coloured; but this was almost certainly done later.) The deluxe issue of this work is one of the three great books on Calcutta by English artists (the works of Thomas Daniell and James Baillie Fraser being the other two). It is also a celebration of the synthesis of cultures that took place in India and reached its early maturity in the city of Calcutta and its environs. In some cases this is not immediately obvious: an almost entirely western scene 'St. Paul's Cathedral, Calcutta' contrasts with the view of the 'Mosque at Borranypore', an entirely Indian scene. However in most cases there is a harmonious mixture of Indian and British subject matter which gives d'Oyly's views their unique flavour. They were intended to display the vigour and confidence of British empire builders in an exotic location but end up being much more than this. D'Oyly's love and deep knowledge of the Indian sub-continent means that he is able to capture the small details which were missed by most European artists of the time. Born in India, Sir Charles d'Oyly was educated in England, before returning to India in the service of the East India Company in 1798. By 1808 he was Collector of Dacca, and in 1818 succeeded to baronet. After serving in a series of posts throughout India, culminating in his appointment as Senior Member of the Board of Customs, Salt and Opium, and of the Marine Board in 1833, he returned to England in 1838, and retired in 1839. He is now best known for his work as an amateur artist and publisher of lithographs (he set up his own lithographic press at Patna in 1828: 'The Behar Amateur Lithographic Press'). Bishop Heber, who stayed with him at Bankipore, wrote that d'Oyly was 'the best gentleman artist I ever met with' and this is certainly borne out by the present work which includes excellent views of many of the main sights of Calcutta.

         Physiologie du Gout . Notice biographique par Alph. Karr.

      Paris Gabriel de Gonet 1848 - 8vo., xxiii, 416pp., engraved frontispiece and seven engraved plates by Bertall, illustrated title-page vignette, numerous wood-engravings in the text, original pictorial gilt blind-stamped black cloth, all edges gilt, a very attractive copy. Never out of print, in a series of meditations that owe something to Montaigne's Essays, and have the discursive rhythm of an age of leisured reading and a confident pursuit of educated pleasures, Brillat-Savarin discourses on the pleasures of the table, which he considers a science. The simplest meal satisfied Brillat-Savarin, as long as it was executed with artistry. The father of low-carbohydrate diet, Brillat-Savarin considered sugar and white flour to be the cause of obesity. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Einband an den Kanten angeplatzt, innen nur vereinzelt braunfleckig, kaum gelockert, insgesamt von überraschend guter Erhaltung, es fehlen die großen Prämienblätter. Ein Werk, das über die Historie der jeweiligen Ortschaften unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der klerikalen Belange und der damals aktuellen Situation informierte. Es dauerte über zwei Generationen, bis zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts die "Neue Sächsische Kirchengalerie" erschien, die - zwar wesentlich umfangreicher und gründlicher- ein visuelles Hilfsmittel nicht mehr einsetzte: Die Lithografie. Die "alte" Galerie aber verfügt über zahlreiche Steindrucke der jeweiligen Kirchen, bei größeren Städten auch vieler Profanbauten, die nach Federzeichnungen von G. Täubert entstanden (Steindrucker Renner bzw. Ketzschau). Diese kleinen Kunstwerke geben nicht nur sehr detailgetreu die Architektur und Zustände der betreffenden Bauwerke wieder, der Künstler bemühte sich, diese in ihrer gesamten Umgebung wirken zu lassen und vergaß auch nicht, die Stilleben durch Menschen und Tiere zu beleben.

         A collection of 32 hand-colored lithographs from "Views of American Cities"]

      Goupil Vilbert & Co, New York & Paris 1848 - 32 hand-colored lithographs by Deroy, printed by Cattier. Images approx. 7 1/2 x 11 inches. Each matted in hand-painted French mats. A collection of 32 handsome and important views in the United States and Canada, 1848-1851 Born in Württemburg in 1812, Köllner's first recorded work dates from his employment at the age of sixteen by the Stuttgart printer Carl Ebner to work on portfolios of etchings of horses and other animals. He came to America in 1839 and settled in Washington briefly, before moving to Philadelphia in 1840 where he lived and worked for the next 60 years. The present group of prints are from what was probably his most important commission and certainly brought him to the attention of the art-buying public. Köllner's body of topographic work "makes a distinct contribution to the documentation of the nineteenth-century American scene" (Deak p.334). Kollner had a fine feel for the modulations of light and shadow, many of his scenes are captured in late afternoon with soft blue skies and light clouds and the sunlight playing on the sides of buildings and streets in the deeper hues of sunset. The group includes views in New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Baltimore, Niagara Falls, Quebec and Montreal. They comprise: Baltimore - Washington Monument Baltimore - Battle-Monument Washington - General Post-Office Washington - Capitol (East View) Washington - Capitol (West View) Mount Vernon - Tomb of Washington Philadelphia - Fairmount Water-Works Philadelphia - U. S. Custom House (formerly U. S. Bank) Philadelphia - State House Philadelphia - S. E.

         Histoire de l’Afrique et de l’Espagne intitulee al-Bayano ‘l-mogrib

      Leiden, 1848 - 1851 - First Edition. First two parts of Kitab al-bayan al-mughrib fi akhbar muluk al-andalus wa’l-maghrib (Book of the Amazing Story of the History of the Kings of al-Andalus and Maghreb) an important medieval text on the history of the Maghreb and Iberia, written in Arabic in Marrakech in about the year 1312 by Ibn Idhari. It is widely regarded among modern researchers as containing valuable information not found elsewhere, including excerpts from older works now lost. It is generally known by its short title al-Bayan alMughrib. The author himself divided the work into three parts: 1- History of the Maghreb from the coming of Islam to the twelfth century. 2-History of Al-Andalus (Muslim Iberia) over the same period. 3- History of the Almoravids and Almohads. While the Arabic text of the first two parts has been known for some considerable time, portions of the third part only came to light during the 20th century. This part is still known only in incomplete form because of missing pages (including beginning and end) and insect damage to the manuscripts. This is the first published Arabic text of the first two parts by Reinhart Dozy; the third part was not published until 1929 by Levi Provencal. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Ferguson, Bibliography of Australia, Volume IV, page 172, 4717: "An attempt to assist bush mothers in the education of their children, other means of instruction being absent. One of the earliest Australian educational treatises". Dr. George Mackaness (1882 - 1968), born in Sydney, was a distinguished Australian educator, historian and bibliophile. He married Alice Symons in 1906. He trained as a teacher and spent many years as English master at Fort Street Public School, Sydney. His book "Inspirational Teaching" was widely acclaimed. He was in charge of the English Department at Sydney Technical College from 1924 to 1946. He was on the board of the Commonwealth Literary Fund, and a trustee of the Public Library of NSW. He was a longtime member of the Royal Australian Historical Society, and president in 1948-9. He wrote over 70 books and journal articles, including a life of William Bligh (1930) and Arthur Phillip (1937). Between 1935 and 1962, he edited and privately published in limited editions, a series of Australian Historical Monographs (later reprinted by Review Publications, Dubbo), consisting of valuable original research plus reprints of key but forgotten historical pamphlets. He amassed in his Drummoyne home probably the largest private collection of Australian books. This huge library was sold via three catalogues issued by Angus & Robertson in 1966. Mackaness was president of the Book Collectors Society of Australia for two years (1958-9). He was awarded the OBE in 1961 and an honorary DSc (Syd) in 1961, Wikipedia, see also the Dictionary of Australian Biography. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

         Die Befestigung von Wien gegen anrükende Feind... [The Fortification of Vienna Against Opposing Enemies...]

      [Wien]: Gredruckt bei Joseph Ludwig, [1848]. First Edition. Proposal issued shortly before the Vienna Uprising of October, 1848, during which violence broke out between the laboring class of the city and the Hapsburg army as the latter was trying to leave in order to quell the Hungarian Revolution. Löve, most likely a university student at the time, proposes that Vienna would best be defended if the walls surrounding the inner city were to be dismantled (they would be irreparable if damaged by enemy bombardment) and the moat filled in for building development. Unlocated in OCLC or KVK, though noted in James E. Walsh, 1848 Austrian Revolutionary Broadsides and Pamphlets (1976), p. 143, dating the broadside to June 31, 1848. Löve issued another five or six titles listed in Walsh, one signed in type "Redacteur [I] der Studentenzeitung," (editor of the student newspaper); another "Redakteur des Stürmers" (editor of "The Strikers"). Broadside (50.75x42cm.) printed blackletter; previous folds, two corners neatly clipped not approaching text, else Very Good to Near Fine.

         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.

      Dublin, Printed by Alexander Thom for Her Majesty's Stationary Office, 1847 / 1848. - First Edition. Two Volumes. 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'.

The History of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, a major literary achievement of the 18th.century published in six volumes, was written by the celebrated English historian Edward Gibbon. The books cover the period of the Roman Empire after Marcus Aurelius, from just before 180 to 1453 and beyond, concluding in 1590. They take as their material the behaviour and decisions that led to the decay and eventual fall of the Roman Empire in the East and West, offering an explanation for why the Roman Empire fell. Gibbon's methodology was so accurate that, to this day, little can be found to controvert his use of primary sources for evidence.

      Bradbury and Evans, London 1848 - The first edition, first issue of Thackeray's masterpiece. Octavo, bound in full red morocco by Bayntun Riviere in Cosway-style binding with a miniature portrait of Thackeray inset into the front panel, engraved frontispiece, engraved additional title, and 38 engraved plates, spine in gilt compartments, gilt inner dentelles, all edges gilt, ivory silk doublures. The first issue, with the headline on page one in rustic type; "Mr. Pitt" on page 453; and the suppressed woodcut of Mr. Steyne on page 336. Van Duzer 231. In fine condition. An exceptional example. Vanity Fair was Thackeray's first major work and established his continued high standing among Victorian novelists. "After that book [Vanity Fair] there could be no doubt about the greatness of its writer. at last the novel of real life on the great scale has been discovered" (Saintsbury, in Grolier, English Prose Fiction, 102). "As Thackeray's masterpiece this novel has outlasted the great majority of his work. The Waterloo scenes are among the best narrative passages in an English novel. Of her type, Becky has never been bettered, and the author's famed irony still stings" (Farrow, 50). It has been the subject of numerous television and film adaptations, most recently into the 2004 film directed by Mira Nair, starring Reese Witherspoon, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Bob Haskins.

         The costumes of the various tribes, portraits of ladies of rank, celebrated princes and chiefs, views of the principal fortresses and cities, and interior of the cities and temples of Afghaunistaun. From original drawings.

      London Hering 1848 - First edition. Folio (61 x 43.5 cm), title printed in red and black, additional hand-coloured lithographed title page, dedication leaf, 29 finely hand-coloured lithograph plates on 25 leaves by Robert Carrick and others after Rattray, many heightened with gum arabic, a few short marginal tears closed, occasional light toning and spotting, each lithograph with descriptive letterpress, list of subscribers, contemporary red half morocco, red morocco title label to upper cover, neat repairs to extremities, a very good copy. The finest illustrated book on Afghanistan, of great value for showing us the ways of life and customs of the country. "Rattray traveled to Afghanistan in 1841 and participated in the latter half of the First Anglo-Afghan War. The artist dedicated this collection to the Candahar Force that he belonged to and the British and Indian officers who participated in this war. In many cases, the artist's commentary, rather than being an explanation of the pictures themselves, is an explanation about the harrowing experiences of British troops in Afghanistan, which the artist faced by himself or heard from others. Characteristic features of Rattray's works are his detailed and vivid depictions of the people living in Afghanistan. In both his works and commentary, he takes great care in depicting clothing. Rattray's work also provides us with a wide range of information that is of historical and ethno-historical interest, such as the forms of worship at tombs and mosques, and the kinds of imperial rituals of the Dorranis. Even though Rattray was a soldier, he had a good command of Persian and spoke directly with local people; more than anything, he had a tireless interest in any information related to Afghanistan."

        Die Akademie. Philosophisches Taschenbuch. Erster Band (= all published).

      Leipzig, Verlagsbureau / Arnold Ruge, 1848. - 8vo. (2), 340, (2) pp. Contemp. marbled boards with ms. spine label. First edition of this collection; extremely rare. "The 'Academy' offers a critique of our contemporary spiritual development and seeks to advance in general, in writing and aesthetically the conditions of science, art, and political life" (Ruge). In his first essay, Ruge pronounces: "The religion of our time seeks man himself and the realization of his nature." This is followed by his correspondence with the Brussels politician Von Kolldorf about "The Religion of Freedom and Poetry". In his political letter to the Germans "What will come of it?" Ruge professes himself a revolutionary even before the revolution and celebrates the outbreak of the February Revolution in France. His "Final Presentation against Censorship Courts and Censorship in Germany" is an apology of his book "The Political Poets of Our Time", appending the ban issued by the Prussian High Court of Censorship on 1 February 1848. In his thirteen "Politican Theses", written under the impression of the February Revolution, Ruge formulates the main features of his humanistic ideal of the state. "The influence of his study of English constitutional theory and political life is obvious" (cf. W. Neher). - In 1824, while still a student of classics, the German politician and writer Arnold Ruge (1802-80) was sentenced to 14 years of incarceration for his activity in the liberal and nationalistic student unions. He served six years, using the time to study. After his release he qualified as a university teacher for the aesthetics of Plato. From 1838 onwards he edited the "Halle Yearsbooks for German Science and Art" which soon became the theoretical publication of the Hegelian Left; collaborators included David Friedrich Strauß and Ludwig Feuerbach. In 1843 Ruge fled to Paris from the German censorship, there editing with Karl Marx the "German-French Yearbooks". A bourgeois-radical democrat, he parted ways with Marx when the latter embraced communism, returning to Germany in 1846. After the failed revolution he escaped to England, settling in Brighton in 1850. - Slight foxing, but very well preserved altogether. Krieg, MNE I, 8. Not in Stammhammer.
