        Die Erhebung des Volkes in Baden fur die deutsche Republik im Fruhjahr 1848

      Basel, Schabelitz 1848.. Mit Holzschnitt-Frontispiz und 3 (1 gefalt.) Holzschnitt-Tafeln. 2 Bll., 128 S. Einfache HLwd. um 1920. Slg. Friedlander 232; Lautenschlager 8108; NDB VIII, 182; ADB L, 94. - Seltene erste Ausgabe, besonders mit allen Illustrationen, da die beiden Tafeln "Gefecht bei Kandern" und "Einnahme von Freiburg" erst später nachgeliefert wurden und bei den meisten Exemplaren fehlen. - Hecker zählte zu der sehr entschlossenen Minderheit die 1848 in Frankfurt die Abschaffung der Fürstentümer forderte und für die Republik eintrat; als die Mehrheit für die künftige Reichsverfassung stimmte, verließ Hecker das Parlament. Nach Mannheim zurückgekehrt, begann er mit den Vorbereitungen für einen bewaffneten Aufstand, der jedoch rasch zu einem Debakel wurde. Nach dem ersten Zusammenstoß mit den regulären Truppen am 20. April 1848 in Kandern liefen seine Revoluzzer auseinander. Hecker selbst floh in die Schweiz, wo er in Muttenz die vorliegende Schrift verfasste und drucken ließ. Kurz danach wanderte er nach den Staaten aus, wo er in Illinois eine Farm erwarb. Im Volksmund lebt der erfolglose Revolutionär als Träger des "Heckerhutes" sowie im "Heckerlied" weiter; mit seinem typischen Hut ist Hecker auch als Frontispiz abgebildet. - Tls. braunfleckig. Die gefalt. Tafeln am unteren Rand etwas knittrig und mit kl. Hinterlegung. Wenige kurze Anstreichungen.

        Vanity Fair A Novel without a Hero With Illustrations on Steel and Wood by the Author

      London: Bradbury and Evans, 1848., 1848. First Edition, in an unusual half vellum binding. Pp.624. This is a mixed issue of the text, with the earlier 'Mr. Pitt' appearing on page 453 (later corrected to 'Sir Pitt'), but without the suppressed woodcut on page 336. The heading on page 1 is in regular type and the 1848 title-page is preceded by an engraved vignette dated 1849. The contents are particularly clean, without any of the browning usually found. Bound in a handsome original half vellum over marbled sides, with simple gilt trim and leather title label. All edges untrimmed. A very attractive copy indeed. The author's defining novel; the improving tale of Becky Sharp. Listed in BBC's Big Read (200 Best Novels) [2003]

        Notes of a Military Reconnnoissance from Fort Leavenworth, in Missouri, to San Diego, in California, Including Parts of the Arkansas, Del Norte, and Gila Rivers

      Washington, D.C.: Wendell and Van Benthuysen. Very Good. 1848. First Edition. Hardcover. 30th Congress Executive No. 7, or the true first Senate edition, which was ordered in December 1847. Emory's report from the 1846-1847 topographical expedition across the southwest, known for its maps and descriptions of the landscapes, flora and fauna, and people of the region. The text and maps were to become important resources in the development and exploration of the region. Lithography by Weber, who is considered by some to be the superior lithographer for this title. Lithographs are hand-tinted, which is extremely unusual for this title (possibly tinted later?). A few later printings had tinted plates in the Abert report, but were presentation copies and signed by Abert. This edition is complete, with folding map, both housed in a slipcase. Some mild foxing to pages, edges of text block a bit soiled. Map is curled and in some places torn at edges or creases. Modern brown cloth binding shows little wear. Wagner-Camp 148:1.; Book; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall .

        Malby's terrestrial globe, compiled from the latest & most authentic sources, including all the recent geographical discoveries. manufactured and published under the superintendance of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge [ ].

      [London], Malby & Co. (engraved by Chas. Malby), 1 January 1848.. Diameter: 45.5 cm (18 inch), height in stand: 64.5 cm. An engraved terrestrial globe with 12 gores and 2 polar caps over a plaster-covered core, and the engraved horizon ring on the wooden stand, all coloured by a contemporary hand.In a contemporary wooden stand with 3 turned legs supporting the horizon ring, and 3 turned stretchers with a cylindrical centrepiece with a knob on the underside. Further with a contemporary brass hour circle and a slightly later iron meridian ring (and probably the axis pivots).. 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" (Nyasa or Malawi), discovered by Candido Jose da Costa Cardoso in 1846, but most of equatorial Africa and the Congo remain uncharted territory, with Burton and Speke's most important discoveries still a decade in the future and Stanley's even further. "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", not to be purchased by the United States until "Seward's folly" in 1867. Texas is part of the United States, reflecting the demise of the "Lone Star" Texas Republic in 1845/46, as are California and most of Arizona, which Mexico ceded in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo on 2 February 1848. 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 (with the prime meridian through Greenwich), but also the irregular curved lines indicating the variation of magnetic from geographic north ("isogones"), at 5 degree intervals. From these one can clearly see where the magnetic poles were. Edmund Halley produced the first world map with isogones in 1702, but the Pacific had to wait until Nicolaas van Ewyk's 1752 map of the northern and southern hemispheres. Malby cites Peter Barlow in the 1833 Transactions of the Royal Society for his data. Where these lines run at least partly north-south, mariner's could use them to help determine longitude. The discovery that they were nearly horizontal in many parts of the East Indies and Pacific, and that they could also change over time, lead to their declining use after John Harris's chronometer came into use beginning around 1772. Malby seems to be the first and almost the only globe maker to show them. The engraver signed the present globe "Chas. Malby" and signed the 12 inch globe of 1845 described by Dekker "C. I. Malby". He must therefore have been Charles Isaac Malby (1816-post 1868), born in London, the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Malby. Thomas Malby, Charles's brother, born in London in 1808, first set up as a globe publisher around 1839 and was trading as Malby & Co by 1841. Charles may have engraved nearly all of his globes. In 1848/49 Thomas took his son Thomas Henry (born 1828) into partnership as Thomas Malby & Son and the firm traded as Malby & Son, to about 1880. They issued a 36 inch (92 cm) globe in 1849, but did not engrave it themselves, having acquired the plates of John Addison's ca. 1825 globe for that size. The earliest Malby globe known to survive is dated 1842, but his earliest recorded 18 inch globes are a pair at the Mariners' Museum in Virginia: the celestial globe dated 1843 and the terrestrial globe dated 1846. The Austrian National Library has an 18 inch Malby terrestrial globe dated 1850, but we find no further example until 1872. The present 1848 example appears to be unique. The Willis Museum in Basingstoke, England, and Dartmouth College in New Hampshire have examples of Malby's 18 inch celestial globe dated 1848, but neither is accompanied by a terrestrial globe. The horizon ring has an owner's stamp on the printed surface, nearly due east, apparently a coat of arms in a wreath, but difficult to make out. 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, with the fascinating and unusual graphic presentation of geomagnetism. - Cf. British Library on-line cat.

        Monument to Monr De La Perouse and his companions erected at Botany Bay

      W.Spreat, Exeter 1848 - Handcoloured lithograph, 155 x 215 mm., fine. A fine Australian view by Robert Marsh Westmacott (1801-1870) from his Sketches in Australia, a series of tinted lithographic plates of Sydney and Harbour areas, mountains and southern coastal regions of New South Wales, "drawn from nature".The French erected this monument to the memory of the scientific and ill-fated De la Perouse, and his companions, whose fate for many years was uncertain, no tidings were heard of them since the expedition left Botany Bay in 1788 having spent several weeks in the company of the First Fleet.Little is known of Westmacott, except that he was a captain in the 4th (King's Own) Regiment, and that he spent the early 1840s in Australia. His published views represent the last in the chronology of work by military or naval officers in the romantic landscape tradition of the early 19th century.

        Collection of 11 tracts and broadsides relating to the 1848 "June Days" Paris Uprising

      Paris: Various Publishers, 1848-49. The short-lived February Revolution of 1848, which resulted in the abdication of the Orleans monarchy and led to the institution of the Second Republic, also produced the brief, bloody workers' revolt known as the "June Days Uprising," in which workers, threatened with losing advances they had made in the February revolution, clashed with petit-bourgeois supporters of the Republic. Far outmatched by Republican troops, more than 1,500 workers died in the four-day conflict; thousands more were injured or arrested. Among the observers of the conflict was a young Karl Marx, who drew on the events in his major work "The 18th Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte" (1852). The June uprising was noted by Lenin as "the first great civil war between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie." The current group of tracts and broadsides, which came to us in a single lot, mainly reflect the workers' perspective in the conflict, though at least one work documents the role of a Republican military officer in suppressing the rebellion. With two exceptions, all were issued contemporaneously. While none is unknown, all are at least uncommon, and several titles are of genuine rarity, not likely to be seen in commerce in the forseeable future. Included are the following titles (author or editor supplied where known): Micromegas. Le Cousin de Micromegas Aux Roberts-Macaires, Industriels. Civils et Politiques, de la bonne ville de Paris. Imp. Cordier [1848]. OCLC 6 copies; 1 in North America. Pierre, Alexandre. Les Robert-Macaires de la République. Paris: M. Alexandre-Pierre [1848]. OCLC 1 copy (BNF). Par la Mère Duchène (pseud.

Volume I with the bookseller label of Livraria de Joao Pereira da Silva, Lisboa; and also a label from Francis Edwards of London: "This Book was purchased in 1941 from London whilst the great battle for civilization was in progress." Rare. OCLC lists scant copies in any early edition. This edition not seen at auction since 1939. Not found in Hill or Cox. A Diccionario Geographico was subsequently issued, usually designated as Volume 8; this set contains the announcement for the dictionary on the leaf following Vol. 7, p. 279 as not yet ready. Where seen, the dictionary is usually with the second edition and bears an imprint different from that of Borges. A couple of the plates have light foxing; 1891 (?) ownership signature across the title of each volume, and with the title of Volume 1 with a light offset presumably from a clipping laid in. But essentially a near fine set with only traces of wear and rubbing. Text in Portuguese.

        Utagawa Kunimasa IV Actor Print

      Tokyo, Japan: Daikokuya Kinzaburo Artist: Utagawa Kunimasa IV 1848-1920. Series/Title: Unserialized actor print. Size: HxW 14 x 9.4 inches, each of three panels of a triptych. Oban tate-e. Date: Date seal is present but does not correspond to any listings in Andreas Marks. This probably indicates a date after 1875. Signed: Kunimasa hitsu. Publisher: Uncertain but believed to be Daikokuya Kinzaburo. Seal name Dai. Flourished 1863 to 1881 [or 1887]. Colors: Excellent colors, somewhat understated but not much faded. Principal colors are four shades of blue, and a rust red. Secondary colors include ecru, beige and gray-green. Condition: Margins are fully trimmed. Washi [?] paper. Unbacked. The three panels are carefully pasted together from the reverse side along either vertical edge of the center sheet. Minor tape residue observed at the top edge of the reverse of sheets, rather trivial. A ½ inch worm hole at the very top of each sheet, professionally backed. Also a similar backed worm hole 1/3 of way down seam between left and center sheets. Almost no soiling. Very Good as to impression. The lines are reasonably clean and clear, neither crisp nor mushy, suggesting a pull neither early nor late. Overall rated Very Good. Comments: Originally born Takenouchi Hidehisa, the artist used multiple go (artist names) during his career including Baido Hosai, Baido Kunimasa, Kochoro, Kunimasa IV, Kunisada III and Toyokuni V. Early in his career he used the go Kunimasa IV and Baido Hosai. In 1889 he succeeded as head of the Utagawa line and took the go Kunisada III. Later in his career he claimed the title Toyokuni IV, but that go was already taken (a fact that he refused to recognize), so he is referred to as Toyokuni V. Featuring the actors Bando Mitsugoro at right, Nakamura [first name undecipherable] at center, and [?] ____Nosuke at left.. Very Good. Illus. by Utagawa Kunimasa IV.
