        Glossaire Nautique.

      Paris: Firmin Didot Frères, , 1848. Repertoire Polyglotte de Terms de Marine Anciens et Modernes. 2 volumes quarto (274 × 208 mm). Contemporary sheep-backed marbled boards. Illustrations in the text. Slightly rubbed, spines mildly scuffed and with some splitting, skilfully repaired, somewhat browned, as usual, but overall a very good set. First edition. Jal was a member of the French naval historical section, becoming official historiographer and eventually head of the archives. This universal marine dictionary was a labour of love, absorbing much of Jal's time for over 6 years, winning him the prestigious Prix Gobert of the Académie Française. "This work contains in one alphabetical sequence words from Latin, Greek, Modern Greek, French, Old French, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, Dutch, Breton, Genoese, Basque, Catalan, Maltese, and other dialects and tongues; comparatively little in English, German and Russian; monumental work, with full definitions, not mere equivalents" (Craig). It is probably most comprehensive marine dictionary ever produced.

        Political Life of Cornelius Cuffey, Esq., Patriot, &C., &c

      London: Printed for sale at the Bazaar in aid of the Governesses' Benevolent Institution, 1848. Exceptionally Rare Black Political Parody [POLITICAL PARODY]. [COLOR PLATE BOOKS]. The Political Life of Cornelius Cuffey, Esq., Patriot, &c., &c. Illustrated in Pen and Pencil by C.R.W. and J.H.J. London: Printed for Sale at the Bazaar in Aid of the Governesses' Benevolent Institution. [Reeve, Benham, and Reeve, Letter-press Printers and Lithographers...], 1848. Quarto (11 x 8 1/2 inches; 280 x 216 mm.). [18] pp. (including title-page). Hand-colored lithographed frontispiece and eight hand-colored lithographed plates. All but one of the plates with its original tissue guard, some guards slightly creased, last leaf of text slightly creased and a little soiled at edges. Publisher's gray lithographed wrappers, expertly rebacked at an early date. Inner hinges professionally strengthened.Front wrappers slightly soiled at outer corners. Housed in a felt-lined half black morocco clamshell case, spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments. Overall a splendid example of this exceptionally rare color-plate book. The eight leaves of text are all written in verse: I. The Preparation.; II. The Speech.; III. The Presidency.; IV. The Procession.; V. The Meeting.; VI. The Conflict.; VII. The Flight.; VIII. The Home. The plates are captioned: [Frontispiece] "Cornelius Cuffey Esqr. 'A pillar of the State, engraven on his front Deliberation, sate and anxious care'"; I. "Mr. C.-scratcheth for ideas"; II. "Mr. C.-on his legs in the John St. Parliament"; III. "Mr. C.-President of the Republic. (in his own imagination)"; IV. "Mr. C.-proceeds to Kennington Common"; V. "Mr. C.-espieth a Policeman"; VI. "Personal encounter between Mr. C & the Policeman"; VII. "Mr. C's retreat-double quick time!-"; and VIII. "Mr. & Mrs. C.-At Home-." This 'Political Parody' is based on the life of William Cuffay, one of the leaders of the British working-class movement for political reform (1838-1857), commonly known as 'the People's Charter' or 'Chartism' movement. His grandfather was an African slave and his father was a West Indian slave from St. Kitts. His 'fictitious death' was lampooned in Punch in November 1848. Very scarce, with only two complete copies located in institutions and libraries worldwide: Harvard University (MA); Library of Philadelphia (PA). There is one other (imperfect with only eight plates) copy at the Mediatheque de Montpellier (France). William Cuffay (1788-1870) was one of the leaders of Chartism, which was the largest political movement ever seen in Britain. His grandfather was an African slave and his father was a West Indian slave, from St Kitts, who managed to gain his freedom and settle in Chatham, Kent. Cuffay trained as a tailor and moved to London where, in 1834, he was involved in the tailors strike for shorter hours. In 1839 he joined the Chartist movement and soon became well known for his oratory and sense of humour. At the final mass demonstration for the Charter on Kennington Common on 10 April 1848, he protested strongly at the decision to call off the march to the House of Commons to present the petition. He called the national leadership a set of cowardly humbugs. In August 1848 Cuffay became involved in a secret revolutionary committee which was planning an uprising in London. He was arrested, tried and convicted, on the evidence of two police spies, of levying war against the Queen. He was sentenced to transportation for life in Tasmania. In Hobart he carried on working as a tailor and remained actively involved in Tasmanian politics for twenty years. His wife was able to join him in 1853 and he was granted a free pardon in 1856. In 1870 he died a pauper in the workhouse. William Cuffay s reputation during the Chartist years was immense, yet he was subsequently forgotten for over 130 years. This book aims to set him in his historical context and restore him to his rightful place as one of the key figures in British history. Not in Abbey; Bobins; Martin Hardie; or Tooley.

        DEALINGS WITH THE FIRM OF DOMBEY AND SON, Wholesale, Retail and for Exploration

      London: Bradbury and Evans, 1848. First edition, with the earliest (2 line) state of the errata and the hook on the left hand on the title-page vignette, "capitan" for "captain" on page 324 and with the missing "if" on page 426. Illustrated with 38 engraved plates, an engraved frontispiece and an engraved title vignette by H.K. Browne. 8vo, in a handsome period binding of of three quarter dark brown calf over marbled boards, back and corner-pieces gilt ruled. The spine with gilt ruled raised bands and with a black morocco label lettered and ruled in gilt, additional gilt lettering in a lower compartment, edges marbled, wove endpapers. The binding of the spine was expertly accomplished at a later date, and incorporates the original lettering label gilt, the end-leaves were added at the same time. xiv, 624 pp. A very handsome copy in a pleasing binding, sturdy and attractive with just a bit of expected maturing to the paper, much less then is typical. FIRST EDITION OF THIS VERY IMPORTANT WORK BY DICKENS. This is quite a desirable copy of the Dickens novel that introduced the world to the memorable Mr. Dombey and his transactions, business and personal, and that creates a "clear picture of society in [Dickens'] time." Dickens wrote it while in residence in a number of different areas, beginning the work in Lausanne, Switzerland, continuing in Paris, and finishing in Brighton, Broadstairs, and London, making the text "a true cosmopolite in the manner of its writing." The publication of this book marked a turning point for Dickens; his proceeds were a fine increase over MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT, and with these earnings "his financial worriment ceased, prosperity began, and a period of money-saving was at hand." This is the first publication of the text in its entirety after its serialization from October 1846 to April 1848. Copies this early are becoming scarce. An excellent piece of classic Dickensiana.

        EARLY RECOLLECTIONS OF JAMAICA, WITH THE PARTICULARS OF AN EVENTFUL PASSAGE HOME VIA NEW YORK AND HALIFAX, AT THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE AMERICAN WAR IN 1812; TO WHICH ARE ADDED, TRIFLES FROM ST. HELENA RELATING TO NAPOLEON AND HIS SUITE

      London, 1848. [6],vi,200pp. plus [8]pp. autograph letter bound in. 12mo. Contemporary half morocco and marbled boards, spine ornately gilt, expertly recased. Contemporary ownership inscription and later ownership stamps on titlepage. Internally clean. Very good. The Reverend B.J. Vernon served as a Chaplain to the Honourable East India Company at Saint Helena in the South Atlantic, before which he had lived in Jamaica and travelled through the United States. This memoir is full of personal recollections of encounters with the natural history of Jamaica, as well as much on the enslaved Africans on the island, fugitive slaves, and rebellions. The "Trifles from St. Helena" section contains many anecdotes of encounters with the exiled Napoleon, and an intimate first hand account of his burial. The work also contains a section on Cuba, and an account of his experiences in New York and Boston and on his voyage home to England. Bound into the front matter is an eight-page autograph letter, signed, from the author to his second daughter Elizabeth Dorrill Hodson, born on Saint Helena in 1820. This letter corrects errors in the text and provides the true identities of various characters, a satisfying indiscretion between father and daughter. This copy also bears her ownership inscription on the titlepage, as well as the ownership stamps of her son, Hubert Courtney Hodson. CUNDALL 304.

        Rußland wie es wirklich ist! Der 17. Jahrestag der Polnischen Revolution. Eine Rede gesprochen in der zu Paris am 29. November 1847 zur Feier dieses Jahrestags gehaltenen Versammlung. Von M. Bakunin, russischem Flüchtling. Ins Deutsche übertragen.

      Mannheim, Heinrich Hoff, 1848 - 19,5 x 12,5 cm. 16 Seiten. Flugschrift mit Rückenheftstreifen. *Stammhammer I, 19: Nettlau, S. 42. - Erste Ausgabe, sehr selten. - Michail Alexandrowitsch Bakunin, (1814-1876) war ein russischer Revolutionär und Anarchist. Er gilt als einer der einflussreichsten Denker, Aktivisten und Organisatoren der anarchistischen Bewegung. Ursprünglich entstammte Bakunin einer alten russischen Adelsfamilie, er entzog sich jedoch dem Leben und dem Militär in Russischen Diensten und schlug sich als Mathematiklehrer durch. 1840 kam er nach Berlin und lernte die großen Denker und Philosophen des Vormärz kennen und engagierte sich für den Sozialismus. Nach dem Ausbruch der Februarrevolution 1848 in Frankreich kehrte Bakunin nach Paris zurück und nahm am revolutionären Kampf teil. Als Mitorganisator der Aufstände im Mai 1849 in Dresden wurde er schließlich verhaftet, mehrfach zum Tode verurteilt und schließlich nach Rußland ausgeliefert, wo er zunächst zu lebenslanger Kerkerhaft und 1857 zu lebenslanger Verbannung nach Sibirien verurteilt wurde. Dort gelang ihm 1861 aber die Flucht und er kehrte über Japan und Amerika nach Europa zurück, wo er in England, Schweden und schließlich in der Schweiz weiterhin politisch tätig war. - Leicht gebräunt (Titelblatt stärker), insgesamt gut erhalten.

        Principles of Political Economy.

      Boston: Charles C. Little and James Brown, 1848. First American edition of John Stuart Mill's classic treatise. Octavo, 2 volumes. Bound in full calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, morocco spine labels, gilt rules to the front and rear panels, raised bands. In excellent condition. Principles of Political Economy is one of the most important economics or political economy books published. Political Economy is the term nineteenth-century writers used to refer to the study of what economists call macroeconomics, though its practitioners, such as Adam Smith, Mill, David Ricardo, and Karl Marx, were more philosophical and less empirical in their methods than modern economists. Mill examines the fundamental economic processes on which society is based: production, the distribution of goods, exchange, the effect of social progress on production and distribution, and the role of government in economic affairs. "To many generations of students, Mill's Principles was the undisputed bible of economic doctrine" (Roll, History of Economic Thought).

        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.

With a Copper Engraved Map on Mercator's Projection]

      Typ. Of Karl Kray, St. Petersburg 1848 - Two vols. bound together. [2], 182; [2], [2], 120, 43, [2] pp., 1 map. 23,5x15 cm. Contemporary marbled papered boards neatly rebacked in style with leather spine (with gilt lettered title); original endpapers. Green paper label of the private library of Kapitan Nevostruyev attached to the front pastedown endpaper. Paper very mildly age toned, but overall a very good sound copy of this rare book. First edition. With a large folding copper engraved map bound at rear. Very rare Russian imprint with only eight copies found in Worldcat. ''Lieutenant Zagoskin's expedition was to make an inland exploration of the northern territory of Alaska and to survey the Kvikhpak (Yukon) and Kuskokvim rivers and the region encompassed by them. Zagoskin kept a diary which forms the basis of his work. He described in detail the Russian trading posts visited and the topography of the surroundings of Norton Sound. He also gave a good account of the life and customs of the Eskimo and the Indian inhabitants and much other important first-hand information secured during the expedition's 18 ½ months of travel, during which about 5,000 versts (some 3,000 miles) were covered on foot and in leather baidars - a truly remarkable achievement'' (Lada-Mocarski 130). ''The map must be one of the first, if not the first, printed map of the interior of Alaska along the lower course of the Yukon and between the Yukon and what is now Nome. Zagoskin's explorations were confined chiefly to the middle course of the Kuslokwim and the lower course and northern tributaries of the Yukon'' (Streeter 3521). Lavrenty Zagoskin (1808-1890) had been in the service of the Russian-American Company since 1838. In 1824-44 he headed the exploratory expedition to the surroundings of the Norton and Kotzebue Sounds, during which he discovered the mountain range separating the Yukon River from the eastern shore of the Norton Sound, surveyed the basins of the local rivers, found previously unknown Aleut settlement (modern Holy Cross in the Yukon-Koyukuk Census Area, Alaska), compiled the first map of the area, and collected numerous zoological, botanical, mineralogical and ethnographical items. For his achievements he was elected a member of the Russian Geographical Society which published excerpts from his travel diary in its ''Proceedings'' (1846 and 1847). This the first full edition of Zagoskin's travel account was published in two volumes in 1847-1848 and was accompanied with a large folding map outlining the route of his expedition. This edition received the Demidov Award of the Russian Academy of Sciences (1849). Our copy includes the paper exlibris label from the private library of Kapiton Nevostruyev (1816-1872), Russian church historian, archaeologist and writer, corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences (1861). He authored the histories of over twenty Russian monasteries, as well as a fundamental description of Slavic manuscripts from the Library of the Holy Synod in Moscow (the main reference library of Russian Orthodox Church).

        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.

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.
