      Amyot, 1848. In-8 p. (mm. 222x148), mz. pelle coeva (lievi abras.), dorso a cordoni con decoraz. e tit. oro, pp. (4),375; illustrato da 32 bellissime tavole litografate a due tinte che raffigurano nativi indiani nei loro usi e costumi, affascinanti scene notturne illuminate dalle torce, scene di genere (fete de la lune à Ceylan, les bonds du Gange, chasse aux éléphants dans la foret de Karnigal) e vedute di Delhi, Madras, Ceylon, Calcutta, Lahore, l'Himalaya, e altri luoghi. Le tavole sono litografate da Cupper, de Rudder, Gerlier, Lehnert, Robineau e Walter e di queste, 5 sono su carta brunita: poichè solo queste portano l'indicazione che sono state stampate da Auguste Bry, è presumibile che sia stata usata un altro tipo di carta. Le restanti infatti sono state stampate da Ed. Rigo. Il volume contiene anche una carta geografica a colori con i percorsi effettuati dall'Autore nei suoi due viaggi (1841-1943 e 1845-1846). "Rara prima edizione", con sole 32 tavole dei "Voyages dans l'Inde", importante opera del viaggiatore ed archeologo russo Soltykoff che avrà più edizioni in francese (con 36 tavole) e in russo. Cfr.

      Smith, Elder & Co. 1848 Half title vol. I. Contemp. half tan calf, spine gilt in compartments, maroon & dark green leather labels. Armorial bookplates of Marx. A v.g. copy in attractive contemporary binding.Both Sadleir (345 & 346a) & Wolff (826 & 826a) had copies of the first & second editions of Jane Eyre in their collections. This third edition appears to be another impression of the second edition from standing type, with the addition of the 'Note to the Third Edition' April 13th, 1848. Walter E. Smith draws attention to several points: in this copy the "9" of p. 27(9) is missing in vol. I, the full stop in the headline p.287 vol. I is also missing; the comma after Smith on titlepage vol. III is reduced to a full stop and there is no "J" on p.95.

        THE HAUNTED MAN and THE GHOST'S BARGAIN

      1848. A Fancy for Christmas-Time. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1848. 2 pp preliminary undated ads. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, all page edges gilt. First Edition of the fifth and last of Dickens's illustrated Christmas books (none had been published in 1847, when he had been busy working on DOMBEY AND SON). This is the tale of Redlaw the chemist, who makes a pact with his "evil genius" to remove all of his memories, only to be saved in the end by his guiding angel. The book is illustrated by John Leech, John Tenniel and others.~In this copy, the first page numeral on p. 166 is damaged -- which, though priority is uncertain, is the only identifiable issue point of this book. This is a near-fine copy (spine slightly faded, just a touch of wear at the spine corners); atypically the original delicate endpapers are intact. The front free endpaper bears the inked inscription "Ellen F. Lee | from her father | December 25 1848" -- Christmas Day, six days after publication. Smith II pp 66-70; Podeschi (Yale) A119.

        RECOMMENDATION FOR A FLORIDA PHYSICIAN AND PLANTATION OWNER TO RECEIVE A FEDERAL COMMISSION AS A LIEUTENANT OF DRAGOONS; Free-franked folded-letter from Florida State Senator James H. T. Lorimer to U. S. Senator J. D. Wescott

      Tallahassee, 1848. Unbound. Very good. This one-page folded letter measures 15.5" x 10" unfolded. It is dated "January the 16th, 1848." The cover bears a green "Free" handstamp indicting no postage was required as it was addressed to a U.S. Senator. It is postmarked with a green circular Tallassee handstamp dated January 19. The letter is in nice shape. "I take the liberty to address you a few lines . . . to obtain your support in procuring the appointment of Dr. Washington Parkhill to the office of 2nd Lieutenant in the Dragoon Service in the U. S. Army. . . . The recommendation . . . for the appointment to which he aspires was signed by nearly every member of the senate of Fla., as well as a large majority of members of the House. . . . Dr. P. possesses imminently all the qualifications necessary to make a good soldier and officer of high rank." Westcott has docketed the letter: "Mr. Parkhill will make a good officer. Col Lorimer is the Whig Senator with the Florida legislature from Tallahassee.". George Washington Parkhill was the son of John Parkhill, a Virginian, who moved to Florida in 1828 with his family and established a homestead in Leon County that eventually grew into a 3,000 acre cotton plantation, Tuscawilla, worked by over 170 slaves. Washington Parkhill was educated in the North and attended the New York College of Physicians and Surgeons. Following his graduation, Washington returned to Florida where he apparently decided that he would rather be a soldier than a physician. A neighboring planter, Florida State Senator James Lorimer, spearheaded the effort, soliciting the assistance of still another plantation owner, J. D. Wescott, who was one of Florida's two first U.S. Senators. Washington was never commissioned in the Dragoons, but remained at Tuscawila, eventually becoming "Master" of the plantation. His military interests continued, however, and at some point was he appointed to be a major general in the Florida state troops. Although a Unionist, Washington resigned his appointment after Florida seceded and raised a volunteer company, initially named the Howell Guards in honor of Jefferson Davis's wife, which in the fall of 1861was one of the first Florida units to head north to fight in Virginia. There, it was redesignated as Company M, 2nd Florida Infantry. Washington was killed while leading his company during the Seven Day Days Battle near Richmond. Perhaps apocryphally, it was reported that his slave, Louis, picked up Washington's body from where he was slain and carried it towards Richmond. He was stopped along the way by a man calling from a house, "Whose body do you carry?" When told that it was Captain Parkhill of Florida, the man ordered, "Bring him in here, he was born in this house." An insight into plantation politics with a scarce Tallahassee postmark that involves four early and important Florida pioneers: both of the Parkhills, Lorimer, and Wescott.

        Travels in the Great Desert of Sahara, in the Years of 1845 and 1846

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1848. Containing a Narrative of Personal Adventures, during a Tour of Nine Months throught the Desert, amongst the Touaricks and other Tribes of Saharan People; including a Description of the Oases and Cities of Ghat, Ghadames, and Mourzuk. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green morocco-grain cloth, titles to spines gilt, decorative frame to boards in blind, vignette of Richardson on a camel gilt to front boards and in blind to rear, pale yellow surface-paper endpapers, fore edges untrimmed. Engraved frontispieces, one similar plate, 24 wood-engravings in text, engraved folding map. From the collection of Colonel Samuel Barrett Miles (1838-1914), British Arabist and colonial officer, with his widow's bequest plate to Bath Public Library dated 1920 to the front pastedowns, and associated manuscript shelf-marks and blindstamps to the text as usual. Lightly rubbed, spines and top portion of vol. 2 front board sunned, tips slightly bumped and worn, cockling to vol. 1 rear board and commensurate damp-staining to rear pastedown, inner hinges expertly repaired, vol. 1 title page slightly marked, sigs. U1-4 clumsily opened along top edge, the text unaffected, 2 short closed tears to folding map, at stub and to bottom edge of one fold, both to minimal effect on image, otherwise the contents with only a few trivial spots or marks. A very good copy. First edition. James Richardson (1806-1851), English explorer and abolitionist, joined a Sahara-bound expedition leaving Tripoli in 1845, hoping to "gather information on the legitimate and slave trades in the interior and in the (unfulfilled) expectation that he would be made vice-consul at Ghadames, a strategically important market town. From Ghadames he travelled to Ghat, a very important slave market, but there was forced by ill health and lack of equipment to turn back, travelling via Fezzan and reaching England in 1846" (ODNB). His account includes descriptions of the major cities in the Fezzan region, trade routes and oases, as well as the culture, religion, and traditions of the Tuaregs. Richardson also frequently refers to the trans-Saharan slave trade and the position of slaves in local Tuareg communities. The Royal Geographical Society reviewed Richardson's Travels favourably upon publication: "These volumes are useful contributions to our knowledge of the interior of the imperfectly known regions of Northern Africa; and they describe some hundreds of miles of desert routes over which no Europeans had previously passed, as well as several of the cities of the Desert, of which we had not before received accounts from European visitors" (JRGS, vol. 18, p. lix). "Richardson's contributions to both the anti-slavery campaign and to African exploration in the nineteenth century have been most unjustifiably neglected. Though his own time in Africa was limited, it was … in considerable part due to him that the slave trade in the area was fought with such tenacity and some success" (ODNB). Copies of this book are also encountered in a "prize binding" with less elaborate panelling to sides, allowing space for a gilt school crest, in place of the attractive camel vignettes seen here.

James Mill (1773-1836), the son of a shoemaker, was educated at Montrose Academy and Edinburgh University where he studied philosophy; licensed as a preacher in 1798; went to London in 1802 to embark on a literary career. He began his history of British India in 1806 and completed it in 1818. He also wrote for periodicals, reviews and articles for Encyclopedia Britannica; he was a friend of Bentham, Ricardo, Joseph Hume, Lord Brougham, George Grote and other thinkers and writers. Mill held pronounced views on political economy, utilitarianism and has been called the founder of Philosophic Radicalism. In 1819 he was appointed Assistant Examiner of Correspondence to the India Office, and by 1830 was head of that office and had great influence over his official superiors. His History was first published in three volumes and then in six. The nine volume edition with three volumes and notes etc. by H.H. Wilson completes Mill's important contribution to the history of the British in India. Wilson was the foremost Sanskrit scholar of his day and a great polymath. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mark William Langlois (1848-1924) - Signed Oil, Brother and Sister

      Late 19th Century - Mark William Langlois (1848-1924) - Signed Original Late 19th Century Oil. Signed lower left and also inscribed on the reverse. Signed. On canvas on stretchers. Several areas of surface paint loss which have been painted over. Inspection under UV light reveals several areas of restoration. Repair to bottom right corner which is also visible on the reverse. Craquelure is present throughout. Losses to edges and corners of canvas. Mark William Langlois was a 19th Century British painter. Langlois is known to have been born in Surrey to a father who engaged in various artistic occupations, such as goldsmith, watchmaker and art dealer. Langlois appears to have achieved some popularity with still life, landscape and genre scenes in watercolour and oil between 1862 and 1873, when he is known to have exhibited at the Royal Academy. There are newspaper reports in the 1870s and 80s of his paintings being auctioned by private collectors, but few merit a specific title, Langlois merely appearing in lists of largely unknown artists whose works were included in the auctions. The titles mentioned suggest the popularity of his figurative work over landscape and still life: Pancake Day was auctioned in Leicester in 1882, Pet Rabbits was auctioned first in Cardiff in 1882 and then again in the same year in Portsmouth. Village School was up for sale in Liverpool in 1888. Today his genre paintings in oil are still the most popular of his works at sales.

Extremely rare and only a couple of copies extant of most of the pieces [Stanford University and University of Edinburgh], of these historical and practical collection of essays on gynecology or obstetrics. Several are the among the first English translations of these medical classics: Heinrich Johann Nepomuk von Crantz, Charles Henry Dzondi, William Harvey, and Hermann Franz Naegele. Probably all of them were produced by the publisher William Irwin of Manchester for what was called "Scarce and valuable monographs", which were numbered. These 14 essays are all published by Irwin and issued in either 1848 or 1849. PROVENANCE: Dr. George Cobban, Garmouth, Fochabers, Elgin, took his medical degree from the University of Edinburgh [1851], served as Assistant Curator of the Anatomical Museum, Edinburgh Univ., etc. See: Medical Directory for Scotland, 1853 - James McGrigor Maclagan, M.D. (1830-1892), one of the sons of prominent Scottish Dr. David Maclagan (1785-1865), who served in the Napoleonic wars and was President of both the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. He served as Surgeon in Scotland to Queen Victoria. "David's youngest son, James attended Edinburgh's Royal High School and University, graduating MD in 1851 (with a thesis on autumn crocus, the source of colchicine for gout). He served in the Indian Army as an Assistant Surgeon, but ill health (the details of which are not recorded) cut short his service. James then engaged in private practice in Cromer and Mexborough before moving into public health, serving as medical officer for health for Hexham and Haltwhistle until 1890. His resignation was precipitated by a reduction in his salary from £300 to £200 per year and the suggestion that he augment this with private practice, something he felt unqualified to do after so many years away from the bedside. It was as he was leaving the meeting where all of this was discussed that he fell, breaking his femur. It healed but left him with a limp and much impaired health. Although he was never as well-known as his father and brothers, James held many positions in the British Medical Association and the Northern Counties Association of Medical Officers of Health and was considered an authority on water supply, housing and sanitation as adjudged by his 17 annual reports. Curiously, his death was recorded as being caused by 'chronic cerebritis supervening on an attack of hemiplegia'." - D. Doyle, "The Maclagan family: six generations of service," Journal of the Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh, 2010; 40:178-84.
