Mill, John Stuart.
London: John W. Parker. 1848. ÒJohn Stuart Mill justified a specialist economics on empirical grounds, and disdained all notion of the universal validity of axiomsÉHe invited consideration of the functioning of an economic system under a variety of alternative institutional arrangements and alternative circumstances, including the Ôstationary stateÕ, although his concern for equitable distribution did not lead him to dispose of the old growth economics. He maintained a modest estimate of the predictive potential of economic science. He recommended model improvement by way of verification against factual evidence, and focused on the mechanics of pricing in the real world of business rather than some ideal worldÉ" (Samuel Hollander, New Palgrave Dictionary). Two volumes, octavo xvi, 593, [1]; xv, [1].549, [1] pp. Complete with the initial blank in the second volume. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, gilt-ecorated spines with burgundy morocco labels. A very good, crisp copy. First edition of the leading textbook of economics in the English-speaking world for the best part of fifty years [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

DICKENS, Charles
London: Bradbury and Evans, 1848. 1848 1st ed / 1st Charles Dickens Dombey and Son English Literature Illustrated"There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor." ― Charles Dickens While not regarded today as Charles Dickens' best work, 'Dombey and Son' was a polarizing novel that captured the hearts of its readers. In fact, the Grolier 'Catalogue of an Exhibition of the Works of Dickens' notes"that there was nothing in all Dickens's writings better than the life and death of Paul Dombey. The chapter describing his death 'threw a whole nation into mourning'." This work was first published in 20 monthly installments; this first book edition features the same engravings by H.K. Browne, which are "considered the best efforts of H.K. Browne". (Grolier). It features the two original pen-and-ink drawings by Browne each signed 'Phiz'.Item number: #10969Price: $750DICKENS, CharlesDombey and SonLondon: Bradbury and Evans, 1848. First edition.

Brontë, Emily
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1848. Very good.. Modern half brown sheep over 19th-century marbled boards, spine ruled and lettered in gilt. New endpapers only at rear. Binder stamp, "Baker Bindery / Anniston, Alabama," on verso of front free endpaper. 288 pages. Expert marginal paper repairs to a few leaves (including gutter of title page), some instances of spotting, little spot of ink on bottom edge: overall fresh. First American edition of the wild Gothic tale of romance and betrayal, published only a few months after the nearly unobtainable London first. The tale of the moors remains one of the most polarizing novels in the English tradition, yet its preeminence in that tradition is beyond doubt. Brutality and passion drive the plot, which is subtly executed with a virtuosity unmatched even by the author's famed sisters. The complexity of the main characters, who exhibit equally dramatic virtues and vices, was a revolutionary choice in the Victorian era, when protagonists typically acted only with exemplary conduct. As a result, the story of Catherine and Heathcliff has become a turbulent dream of our collective psyche. This American edition was published only a few months after the London, which is legendarily scarce: recent copies have all sold for into the six figures. Emily Brontë would die of tuberculosis only eight months after this edition was published. An important edition of the masterwork that has baffled and intrigued us for generations.

Lopez y Planes, Don Vincente; Parera, Blas; and Ware, H.
Boston: Henry Tolman, [1848]. THE RARE FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH OF THE ARGENTINE NATIONAL ANTHEM - Quarto, 13 inches high by 10-1/4 inches wide. Printed engraved self-wraps, removed from a larger collection in the distant past. The lower portion of the spine has been unevenly cut. There is some minor foxing and spotting to the top of the front and rear covers. 9 & [1] pages, including the covers, consisting of the title and 7 pages of engraved music with the lyrics to the first stanza and that for the chorus printed within the score and the lyrics to the additional 3 stanzas engraved in English and Spanish at the end. Very good. The rare first edition in English of the Argentine National Anthem. Inscribed in ink along the top of the front cover: "[] From Henry Tolmans 153 Washington St. Boston / Sept [] 1949". The composition with lyrics by the Buenos Aires born politician Vincente Lopez y Planes was set to music by Blas Parera. Three years after Argentina's May Revolution, the composition was adopted as the country's national song on May 11, 1813. This first edition in English omits the highly bellicose verses 4 through 8 which were present in the first Spanish version. The lyrics of those verses were ardently pro-independence and anti-Spanish as the country was then fighting for independence from Spain. It wasn't until 1900, when Argentinean resentment of Spain had abated, that the Spanish-language version of the anthem was condensed to reflect the now peaceful relations between the 2 countries. Despite the omission of these stanzas, the lyrics which appear in this Englis … [Click Below for Full Description]

[GLOBE - TERRESTRIAL]. MALBY & CO.
Only recorded copy of the 1848 edition (preceded only by one recorded copy of 1846 edition) of Malby's 18 inch (45.5 cm) terrestrial globe, the largest he engraved and much rarer than his 12 inch globe. It shows small pieces of the Antarctic coast, noting sightings and explorations from 1831 to 1841. In Africa it shows Lake "Nyassi", discovered by Candido José da Costa Cardoso in 1846, but most of equatorial Africa and the Congo remain uncharted territory. "Oregon", officially made a United States territory in 1848, shows the boundary with "British America" agreed at the 1846 Oregon treaty. Alaska is still "Russian America. Texas is part of the United States, as are California and most of Arizona. The Revolution of 1848 has not yet affected the boundaries of the Austrian Empire. "Debai" (Dubai) is shown on the Gulf coast, only 15 years after the al-Maktoum dynasty took charge of it in 1833.The globe seems to be intended especially for navigational use, with not only a grid of parallels and meridians, but also the irregular curved lines indicating the variation of magnetic from geographic north ("isogones"). Malby seems to be the first and almost the only globe maker to show them.The horizon ring and globe have a dozen small cracks repaired and a few small gaps in the surface image, some repaired, but are otherwise in good condition. Extremely rare and lovely large globe.l Cf. British Library on-line cat.

FRANCK, BERNARD.
Rare catalogue of the collection of dance card cases of Bernard Franck (1848-1924), a well-known collector of memorabilia from the Napoleonic era. It shortly describes and displays both sides of 124 ornate eighteenth century jewelled cases to house dance cards issued for royal and aristocratic balls. The catalogue was only produced in 20 copies, and the collection of cases was sold to J.P. Morgan around 1910, who donated it to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1917.While there appear to be a few copies, with a varying amount of photographs, the present copy is complete except for the full-page portrait of Franck, and is otherwise identical to the copy in the BnF, including the binding. The bookblock is almost fully separated from the front hinge and the spine is slightly rubbed, but the binding is still attractive. The photos and text are in very good condition.

CIGNANO, Ludovico.
166 pp.First and only edition of a fascinating combination of Italian Renaissance travel account, literature and philosophy. The publication is rare and hardly appears in the literature, so it is little known and provides a wealth of curious information. Real and imaginary stories of mercantile voyages to the East are combined with philosophical reflections on travel, in an endeavour to lift travel to a higher philosophical level. There are seven numbered chapters (each called a "spatio"). The fourth chapter lays out an extensive trade route from Italy to India that runs through the Arabian Peninsula, resembling the famous Silk Route. It names many Arabian locations including Aleppo, Mecca, Hormuz and Basra. The final destinations are the cities of Magalore and Canonore (Kannur) on the Indian west coast, which are reached via Cambaia (Khambhat). Another chapter tells the story of a mercantile voyage by ship to China, with a stopover in India. The traveller describes a stay of several days in Calicut (Kozhikode), where they acquired a certain liqueur from a tree that was "molto buono, & excellente". Some of the other destinations, as well as the names of some of the people and ships, seem to be allegorical (many of the ship names, like Castor and Pollux, could well be real, but we have found none that seems relevant to the present accounts). The preliminaries include the author's dedication and dedicatory poem to Giovanni Luigi Scappi, a professor of law at the University of Bologna (Mazzetti, Repertorio di tutti i professori ... Università ... Bologna, 1848, no. 2831), a la … [Click Below for Full Description]

TARENGHI, Enrico.
Attractive watercolour painting by the Italian orientalist painter Enrico Tarenghi (1848-1938), it shows three bearded men with carpets and two poufs. One of them is clearly the seller, another is inspecting the wares and the third is sitting on the ground rolling up one of the carpets. In the background a wide river (generally assumed to be the Nile), a dromedary and dozens of palm trees.Tarenghi made extensive use of photography in his work and often used photographs as a template for the background. The present setting is found more often in his work, not only showing carpet sellers, but also merchants selling fruit. The carpet trade, however, seems to be one of his favourite subjects regardless of the background. The carpets allowed Tarenghi to show off his skills, with their intricate motives, textures, creases and folds.Small water stain and minor defects at the foot and a few other negligible blemishes, but otherwise in very good condition.l For the artist: Thieme & Becker XXXII, p. 445.

The author, a British illustrator, naturalist, entomologist and numismatist took advantage of the Victorian craze for for gift books as well as aquariums, providing practical instruction for creating them at home. This work exemplifies the former, as GORDON N. RAY 232 notes in his Chromolithography section: "'Not content merely to imitate his medieval predecessors, he created fresh designs in their spirit, thus producing the most attractive of chromolithographic books." Chips to upper cover corners, last two text leaves (Remarks of the Illuminator) toned, T. Bowler book label, Manchester, and gift inscription dated 1849.

[Social History] [Emma and Elijah Guild]
Lyons [NY], 1848. 28 page manuscript ledger in a single neat hand, documenting transactions across three months in the dry goods store of Lyons, NY. Handwritten notation on the front wrap of the Blank Books Adapted to Fulton & Eastman's Book Keeping (Troy, NY) reads "Day Book...Merchants." The inside of the wrap has printed advice "To the Pupil" on learning bookkeeping. While no ownership signature is to be found in the manuscript, The Genealogy and History of the Guild, Guile, and Gile Family show that Elijah Guild was the preeminent merchant of the small town of Lyons, NY and that he married Emma Carman in the year 1848. This suggests that the book was likely kept for their store, and that Emma herself may have been learning how to keep the accounts. Regardless of which spouse kept the ledger, however, it is rich with information on the economy and habits in this upstate township, positioned near Rochester, Syracuse, and Seneca Falls -- a region afire with activism in this significant year in American history. Positioned in the same year as the Seneca Falls Convention, and within the same region, this merchant's ledger gives us insight into the types of goods being transported up and sold within the township. It also assists us in tracing which households spent money where -- who was purchasing necessities versus luxuries and whether husbands, wives or domestic servants more frequently made the purchases. The merchant's ledger also poses opportunities for studying whether members of this small community were engaged in key movements surrounding them -- whether they … [Click Below for Full Description]
