        Dombey and Son

      London: Bradbury and Evans,, 1848. Octavo (207 x 130). Early 20th century dark red straight-grain morocco by Riviere, decoratively gilt panelled spine, two-line gilt border on sides, top edges gilt, richly gilt turn-ins, pale pink endpapers. Etched vignette, frontispiece and 38 plates by "Phiz" (H. K. Browne). Joints a little rubbed. With the half-title and two-line errata leaf (errata slip not present). First edition, a handsomely bound copy. "[Dombey] was far more carefully planned and structured than Chuzzlewit and is now recognized as one of the greatest of all his works. It is the first novel for which a full set of working notes and number-plans survives (in the Forster collection, Victoria and Albert Museum). It is also the first one to have an explicitly contemporary setting. The railway features strongly in the story, which is also much concerned with the fate of women in contemporary middle-class English society" (ODNB).

        The national distress: its financial origin and remedy. with the proposal of a common principle of union amongst the promoters of an equitable adjustment of the currency; and a vindication of the railways

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Co. 1848. 8vo., (6) + 260 + 8pp., original blind-stamped cloth with printed spine label, the label a little worn and soiled, a little wear to extremities else a very good uncut presentation copy inscribed in ink> at head of title 'Dr Stevenson with the author's compts.>' First edition (but see further note below) and very scarce. Kress C.7510. Goldsmiths 35690. The University of London (Goldsmiths Library) also has an unpublished proof copy given the title: The capricious, usurious, and blighting interest of money.> This title was evidently abandoned for the published version. Although published anonymously, there is an intriguing, and credible, note on the flyleaf of our copy attributing the authorship of National Distress> to Henry Booth (1789-1869), the railway projector and manager long associated with the Liverpool and Manchester railway and a consistent supporter of George Stephenson. 'He was a tireless writer and pamphleteer for much of his life, publishing books, papers, and articles on technical and scientific subjects, social questions, taxation, politics, and the economy. His Account of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway> (1830) remains an indispensable starting point for serious study of the early history of that line. His works on politics, notably A Reformed Parliament> (1833), reflect his moderate Liberalism, and his studies of economic questions, most importantly Free Trade as it Affects the People> (1833), express his firm but pragmatic belief in laissez-faire> principles.' [Francis Watt rev. Ralph Harrington in ODNB]. The 8-page Appendix to The National Distress> comprises Propositions for a Public Act relating to the issues of the Bank of England and to a national currency.> It makes interesting reading. * It seems probable that the recipient was Robert Stevenson (1772-1850), the celebrated Scottish civil engineer, but it might equally have been Robert's civil engineer son, Alan Stevenson (1807-1865).

        Windsor Castle. An Historical Romance

London: Henry Colburn, 1844 [i.e. 1848].First [New] edition in the original eleven parts as issued. Octavo (9 3/8 x 5 15/16 inches; 238 x 151 mm.). xii, 324 pp. Etched pictorial title-page by W. Alfred Delamotte, etched portrait of Ainsworth by Daniel Maclise,fourteen etched plates by George Cruikshank, four by Tony Johannot and eighty-seven fine woodcuts in the text by W. Alfred Delamotte. Complete with the advertisements in part I (2 pp.) and part III (8 pp.). Original pale yellow wrappers pictorially decorated in black. Early ink signature on front wrapper of part one. A spectacular set, fine and untouched. Chemised in a half brown morocco pull-off case. "First issued in blue cloth with gilt design, and later the colour of the cloth was changed to red. Issued in eleven numbers about the same period, but the date on the title was changed to 1844." (Cohn).Windsor Castle is an historical historical romance with gothic elements that depicts Henry VIII's pursuit of Anne Boleyn. Intertwined with the story are the actions of Herne the Hunter, a legendary ghost that haunts Windsor woods. The first mention of Windsor Castle comes in a letter to Crossley 17 November 1841: "I am just now finishing Old St. Paul's and am consequently very busy… I have made all arrangements to start my Magazine at Christmas next, and have engaged Tony Johannot (the artist), who is now at work for me... Windsor Castle, of course, forms the main feature of the design, and I propose commencing the story with Henry the Eighth entering into the Castle on the morning of St. George's Day, 1529, attended by Anne Boleyn and the Cardinals Wosley and Campeggio. I intend making Lord Surrey the hero of the story. what say you?"Ainsworth wrote Windsor Castle in 1842 while he was publishing The Miser's Daughter. During this time, he was constantly working to publish the novel by April, and Ainsworth only stopped when his mother, Ann Ainsworth, died on 15 March 1842. John Forster wrote to Ainsworth following the death of Ann to offer assistance with the work: "I imagine that you will defer the Windsor Castle this month -- but should you not do so, I might be of some assistance to you. I have all my Henry VIII books here, and if you told me some particular thing you wanted ?- it may be horrible conceit ?- but somehow I think I might be of some beggarly service to you. At all events, in that or lesser matters, try if for old affection's sake you can discover anything for me to do for you". After declining the service of Forster, it was first published in a serialized form in the Ainsworth's Magazine starting July 1842 and ending in June 1843. There was some overlap with The Miser's Daughter, and George Cruikshank, illustrator of The Miser's Daughter later became illustrator of Windsor Castle after the prior work finished. It was published by Henry Colburn as a three-decker novel in 1843. Windsor Castle was re-issued in one volume in 1848. The parts issue, as here, appeared around the same time. During the initial publication of Windsor Castle, over 30,000 copies were sold and the work was in high demand. The novel was adapted into a play called Herne the Hunter, with a focus on the particular section dealing with the title character in the original novel.Cohn, 19.

        Steam Warfare in the Parana: A Narrative of Operations by the Combined Squadrons of England and France in forcing a Passage up that River.

      London: Charles Ollier, 1848 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original purplish-brown vertically finely ribbed cloth with elaborate panels in blind to the boards, title gilt to the spines, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. A little rubbed, spines sunned, upper board of volume II mottled at the fore-edge, light toning, foxing to the prelims of volume II, remains a very good set. Folding lithographed map frontispiece to volume I together with 2 wood-engraved plates, wood-engraved frontispiece to volume II, half-titles present. First edition. Uncommon account of the Anglo-French naval interventions against Rojas's Argentine Confederation written by a participant. Mackinnon "obtained the particular mention of Commodore Sir Chas., Hotham for the skill he exemplified in the command of the rocket-party [at San Lorenzo], which had been obliged to remain two days and nights concealed under the enemy's nose" (O'Byrne). Despite the successful forcing of the river at Obligado by the Anglo-French squadrons, the consequent settlement, dictated by financial and political considerations, was highly favourable to the Argentines. Following Obligado, "There was little further resistance; and although the allies afterwards relieved Montevideo from an attack by some of the friends of Rosas, and, for a time, occupied the city, the difficulties at issue thenceforward became the subject rather of diplomatic negotiations than of active measures. Many of the advantages which had been gained were, unfortunately, sacrificed or neutralised by the terms of the settlement; but in spite of the rather unhandsome manner in which the services of the Navy on this most creditable expedition were treated by the Government, it must be admitted that seldom have British officers, bluejackets, and Marines deserved better of their country" (Clowes, VI, p.345). Ownership inscription of Spencer N. Dickson, sometime Chilean consul in London to the half- title of volume I, a few informed pencilled annotations to the margins. Sabin 43463.

        Bronze medal

      1848 - Berzelius, Jöns Jacob (1779-1848). Jacobus Berzelius. Medal in bronze showing a right-facing bust of Berzelius on the obverse with his birth and death dates in roman numerals; the reverse with a standing winged figure and the seated figure of Hygeia along with text in Latin. Signed "P. H. Lundgren fec. – C. G. Quarnstroem inv." N.p., n.d. [1848]. 57 mm. diameter. A few minor scratches and dings, but very good. The Berzelius Medal was commissioned by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in memory of the famous Swedish chemist, who is regarded as one of the founders of modern chemistry. Berzelius invented the current system of chemical symbols, originated the duality theory of chemical affinity classing chemical elements as either electronegative or electropositive (an ancestor of 20th century electron theories of bonding), developed new and important methods of chemical synthesis and analysis, and discovered the elements cerium, selenium and thorium. The Latin motto above the figures on the reverse reads "Naturam jussit vires proferre latentes" (He commanded forth the secrets of nature). The text below the figures reads "Fundatorum supremo lugens [in deepest mourning]/ Medic. Suec. Societas." The medal was issued in silver, bronze and Berlin iron; this is an example of the bronze.

In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast...that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest.

Bound in original blind-stamped green cloth with spine divided into five panels, with title and author's name in gilt, blind-stamped borders to covers incoporating a woven rope device, coated yellow endpapers. With the half-title and eight-line errata following the text. With the following first issue points: in the title-page vignette, Capt. Cuttle's hook is erroneously on his left arm; p. xv (un-numbered), no page entry for the frontispiece and vignette, and no quotation marks around "the Party" line 2; p.14, ten lines up, "aint" has no apostrophe; p.26, line 11 has "fidgetty"; on p.40, "shewed" and "shew" instead of "showed" and "show"; p.284, fifth and sixth lines from the bottom, "Delight" instead of "Joy"; "if" is present in line 9, p.426, the page number is present on p. 431 (as usual); p. 582, the last line has no full stop.

As with much of Dickens' writing it contains a number of socially significant themes, particularly the then-prevalent common practice of arranged marriages for financial gain or as a form of slavery, also child cruelty (specifically Dombey's treatment of Florence), familial relationships, Death (the villainous Carker meets a rather horrific end, also the loss of Paul Dombey 'threw a whole nation into mourning' -Forster) and as ever with Dickens, betrayal and deceit and the consequences thereof.

        Dombey and Son

      London: Bradbury & Evans,, 1848. With Illustrations by H. K. Browne. Octavo (210 × 132 mm). Early-20th-century tan calf by Morrell, spine elaborately gilt in compartments separated by raised bands, red and black morocco labels respectively to second and third, French fillet and floral cornerpieces gilt to covers, blue endpapers, floral roll to turn-ins gilt. Engraved frontispiece, similar vignette to title page and 38 plates all after illustrations by Phiz. Ownership inscription to front blank. Tan-burn to free endpapers from turn-ins, occasional foxing to plates, chiefly to reverse and margins with illustrations spared. An excellent copy, handsomely bound. First edition in book form, complete with the eight-line errata leaf listing six errors from p. 362 to 497. Dombey and Son originally appeared in twenty numbers, bound in nineteen monthly parts, from October 1846 to April 1848, when it was issued in book form on the 12th. It is noted for containing "the first published example of a so-called dark plate, which was created by a machine process that tinted the etched plate and heightened its black-and-white contrast. The one dark plate in Dombey and Son is "On the Dark Road", p. 547.
