        The Great Hoggarty Diamond. [Bound after:] Vanity Fair. A Novel without a Hero.

      New York: Harper and Brothers 1848 - FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM of the ‘Great Hoggarty Diamond’, final ads discarded, 32 plates in ‘Vanity Fair’, foxed throughout (mostly lightly), plates toned, the upper blank corner of the illustrated title to vol. i torn away, some edges creased, pp. viii, [9]-332, [4], 67, 78-84 (as called for), 8vo., bound together in slightly later half dark red roan, marbled boards and endpapers, backstrip with four raised bands, second compartment gilt lettered direct, rubbed, a little chipping to backstrip, cornertips worn, morocco booklabel of Estelle Doheny, sound The scarce first book-form edition of Thackeray’s ‘The Great Hoggarty Diamond’, originally published serially in ‘Fraser’s Magazine’ in 1841. This printing is based on the serial and hence is slightly different from the first English edition, which would be published in London the following year as ‘The History of Samuel Titmarsh and the Great Hoggarty Diamond’. This version is much scarcer than the first English edition: according to Van Duzer, Dickson could locate only one copy, in the Boston Athenaeum, and there are no copies now listed in COPAC. ABPC records only four appearances at auction, all in America, and none after 1989.Bound before it is a later printing of the first American edition of Vanity Fair, with no date on the title but with publisher’s ads including works issued in the early 1850s.

Very faint tideline throughout, minor foxing. Very good. In a cloth case, leather label. An exceptionally rare firsthand account of the Canada Rebellion of 1837-1838, and the experiences of an American participant who was imprisoned and sent to Tasmania. Marsh was one of eighty-two Americans convicted of aiding the Canadian rebels. Captured after the Battle of Prescott, he was detained at Toronto and Kingston before being sent to Van Diemen's Land. Sent aboard the British prison ship, Buffalo, he reached Hobart Town in February, 1840. Marsh was pardoned in 1845 and returned to Buffalo the next year. He describes in detail his imprisonment in Canada, the voyage to Tasmania, and the "cruel and unmerciful treatment during five years of unmitigated suffering on that detestable prison island." Also of interest is Marsh's description of Tasmania, its inhabitants and products. The illustration is a woodcut of the burning of the steamship Caroline. "The most detailed, most graphic, and most valuable of the narratives of exiles to Van Diemen's Land" - Severance. "Rarest of the Canadian Prisoner Narratives" - Ferguson.

        Flowers and Their Kindred Thoughts

      Longman & Co., London 1848 - A beautiful volume that has the double benefit of an Owen Jones Relievo binding and 15 full page chromolithographic plates (including decorated Colophon page), also by Owen. To start with the binding: Designed by Owen Jones and bound by Remnant Edmonds & Remnants. There are bevelled boards where the bevels are blocked with a curling stem and leaf decoration and the boards (front and rear) are thick with ivy leaves, berries and twigs blocked in blind and relief. The title to the front board is in gothic lettering based upon twigs. Gilt inside dentilles. Gilt edges. The front and rear end papers are on thick textured paper and have a gilt ivy / leaf / berry pattern. printed on upper endpaper verso, at the tail is: ' Bound by Remnant Edmonds & Remnants'. The interior presents 14 superb full page chromolithographic flowers, each associated with an attribute which is described in gilt gothic lettering on the opposite page (e.g. Snowdrop for hope, Primrose for innocence, Rose for love). The lithography is by E. L. Bateman. The overall condition of this volume is very good. Specific condition: There is some slight staining and scuffing to the outer boards (see photo). The front and rear hinges have been reinforced with a neat brown tape strip. There are one or two minor brown spots. This book has a gutta percha binding and quite thick heavy pages - this combination means that some of the pages are loose and pulling away. There is a contents page but no title page present. Some additional background information that you may find of interest: Owen Jones worked for Thomas De La Rue on playing card design, and many of the chromolithograph flower illustrations in this book are to me reminiscent of his work on playing cards for De La Rue. Jones is best known as an interior and pattern designer although he was also an architect. He was superintendent of works at the Great Exhibition of 1851 and designer of the Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Alhambra Courts at Crystal Palace after its move to Sydenham in 1854. Together with Sir Matthew Digby Wyatt, Jones produced the vastly influential Grammar of Ornament in 1856. Leake's patented "Relievo" bindings, made of heavily molded and embossed leather left to its natural color, are usually associated with the English designer Owen Jones. Like papier-mâché bindings, "Relievo" bindings recall both medieval bindings and wood carvings and often occur on ecclesiastical books. The English trade binders Remnant & Edmonds were responsible for many known examples of "Relievo" work, winning a prize for them at the Great Exhibition of 1851. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

        Road in the Redwoods, Santa Cruz Mtns. Calif.

      - Raymond Dabb Yelland (1848-1900) “Road in the Redwoods, Santa Cruz Mtns. Calif.” Signed “R.D. Yelland” lower left Inscribed with title reverse (before restoration) 1890 Oil on canvas 21 ¼” x 13 ¼”; 32” x 24” framed Provenance: Artist's estate to Mrs. E.D.V. Gould; to Mrs. Taylor; to her grandson, private collection, Longview, Washington. During the 1880s, a number of well-trained and widely traveled landscape painters settled permanently in the San Francisco Bay area. These artists adopted a loose and expressive brushwork style in their views of California landscapes, influenced by the Impressionistic style that was gaining popularity in Europe. Raymond Dabb Yelland, known as a distinguished artist and dedicated art instructor, was one of the stalwarts of the San Francisco art world. Born in England, his family brought him to America at age three. He studied at the country’s leading art institute, the prestigious National Academy of Design in New York City. In 1874, at the age of 25, he moved to Oakland, California as a professor of drawing and painting at Mills College. He quickly gained a fine reputation as a teacher, and later assumed additional academic positions in the Bay area, including assistant directorship of the San Francisco Art Association, founded in 1871, and the directorship of the California School of Design. A beloved teacher, he was a decisive influence on a younger generation of California artists. Among the many who worked with him directly were Gottardo Piazzoni, Grace Carpenter Hudson and James Everett Stuart. Yelland was trained as a technically adept painter of the academic tradition of realism. He excelled with paintings in the American “luminist” mode, portraying quiet stretches of water and sky bathed in the delicate light of early evening. Yelland’s works are the best west coast examples of this style developed in the east by Kensett, Gifford, Bricher and Silva. The meticulous realism captured in paintings of this mode was created through tiny brushstrokes that obliterate any sense of an artist’s hand at work. Yelland is best known for his coastal scenes at sunset, but often visited and painted views in the Monterey area. In 1886, Yelland went to Paris to exhibit in the Salon. It appears that both the French Impressionists, whom were having their eighth and final exhibition in Paris that year, and the French Barbizon painters, known for their impressionistically painted landscapes, influenced Yelland. This particular painting has a painterly style that is reminiscent of Pissaro and Monet. And, one of the Barbizon painters’ favorite subjects was the wood interior, portraying ancient trails through the oaks in the Forest of Fontainebleau near the village of Barbizon. Yelland’s painting takes this fashionable subject of the woodlands, and adapts it to California, capturing the majestic beauty of the redwood forests in Santa Cruz mountains south of San Francisco. Yelland has created a pleasing harmony of warm tones in matching the orange tints of the foreground earth to the bark of the giant trees. This painting was most likely completed in 1890, when other Yelland paintings of Santa Cruz subjects were exhibited at the San Francisco Art Association. Incidentally, Yelland’s work was also included in a special “California Artist” exhibition, which was part of the California Midwinter International Fair of 1894, held in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.

        View from under the Portico of the Temple of Denera

      Moon, F.G., London 1848 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.

        Mosque of Sultan Hassan, Cairo. December 1st, 1848.

      London. 1848 - Size: 425 × 610 mm. Very good condition. Unobtrusive blind stamp. Tinted lithograph with additional colour. Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo and three full sketchbooks, enough material to "serve me for the rest of my life" (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, Travel). These lithographs were originally published in twenty parts, most parts containing six plates, the price for each part with coloured plates (the most expensive state) being 3 guineas. Sketches in Egypt and Nubia, from Drawings made on the Spot. 1846-9. Abbey, Travel, 272; Gay 2216; Ibrahim-Hilmy, II, p.176; Lipperheide 1591; Tooley (1954) 402.

        Loss and Gain

      London: James Burns, 17 Portman Street, Portman Square, 1848. First edition. 12mo. 386 pp. Bound without terminal leaf of publisher's ads. Modern half cloth and green marbled boards, retaining an earlier morocco spine label; marbled edges. Name cut from top margin of title page, another removed from title with ink eradicator. Very good copy of a rare book. Sadleir 1825; Wolff 5096 "a very rare book"; Wolff, Gains and Losses, pp. 43-60 . The first work of prose fiction by the noted theologian, John Henry Newman (1801-1890), whose conversion to Catholicism in 1845 shook the Anglican church. A thinly disguised account of his conversion, Loss and Gain is the most important English religious novel of the nineteenth century and a key document in the history of the Oxford movement. It was widely reprinted and a subtitle was added in the later editions. Newman was made a Cardinal by Pope Leo XIII in 1879 "Newman himself was in the process of publishing (anonymously) his first novel, Loss and Gain: the Story of a Convert. The book is partly autobiographical ... The inconsistencies of the comprehensiveness of the Church of England and of Anglo-Catholicism are amusingly satirized in what are probably the most memorable parts of a novel of which the chief claim to originality lies in the introduction of a new kind of introspective self-questioning into English fiction (see K. Tillotson, Novels of the Eighteen-Forties, 1954). ... the most significant Roman Catholic theologian of the nineteenth century, [Newman] has also come to be seen as the most seminal of modern Catholic thinkers" (ONDB). Wolff writes, "it remains extraordinarily significant ... Newman's novels ... delighted his peers. But unquestionably they were too subtle, too intellectual, too profound, then as now." "By common consent, and in the considered opinion of Gerard Manley Hopkins and James Joyce, Newman was the greatest Victorian master of English prose," writes Anthony Kenny in this week's TLS (30 July 2010), where he reviews a recent biography, Newman's Unquiet Grave by John Cornwell, and considers the projected visit to England by Pope Benedict XVI for "the beatification (a last staging post on the path to sainthood) of John Henry Newman in September". The issues includes a second extensive article by Bernard Manzo, "The test of literature, John Henry Newman's holy imaginings", discussing Cardinal Newman's poems, two novels and essays. Rare

        Evangeline, a Tale of Acadie. Sixth Edition.

      Boston: William D. Ticknor & Company, 1848 - Duodecimo. Original dun cloth, title gilt to spine, large gilt floral wreath to the centre of both boards contained within blind panelling, cream surface paper endpapers. A little rubbed, head and tail of the spine chipped, short split at the head of the upper joint, hinges a little cracked, light toning, but overall very good. Sixth edition, one year after the first. This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper, "Sarah Butler from her friend, Fanny [Kemble,] December 25th/'45," and with the Butler Place bookplate to the front pastedown. Sarah was Fanny Kemble's elder daughter, named for her aunt, the great tragedienne Sarah Siddons. When Kemble's abolitionism forced her separation from her plantation-owning husband Pierce Butler, her daughters remained in his custody. In 1848 she was touring England, in an attempt to rehabilitate her career, when she was " summoned to America, where her husband filed divorce proceedings on the grounds of desertion; batteries of expensive lawyers were hired on both sides, but Butler finally agreed to a settlement without the formality of a trial, to prevent revelation of evidence extremely embarrassing to him. It was a long and bitter divorce, but it was settled with surface amicability; Fanny was to have $2500 a year and access to the children, who were to live with their father. Butler tried every stratagem to keep from fulfilling the conditions, to the extreme pain of Fanny, who resumed her maiden name." (ODNB) An extremely emotive piece; a Christmas gift, inscribed in the midst of a highly-contested divorce, by a mother to her 13 year-old daughter, "her friend." A number of passages have been marked in the margins in pencil, including these lines; "Talk not of wasted affection, affection was never wasted;/ If it enrich not the heart of another, its waters, returning/ Back to their springs, like the rain, shall fill them full of refreshment " [Attributes: First Edition]

      Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, . 1848 - Wall map, 39 x 49 inches, full period color. Surrounded by thirty-two small maps of individual American cities. Expertly repaired, backed with modern linen, trimmed in maroon cloth, on contemporary rollers. Some creasing, toning, and staining, but overall in very good condition. The fifth edition of an important wall map of the United States, following editions of 1843, 1844, 1845, and 1846. Along with thirty-two small maps of individual American cities, there are two important additional inset maps, which appeared first in the 1846 version: "Map of Oregon Territory" (shown encompassing Oregon and Washington) and "Map of the State of Texas." The change in the Oregon Territory inset is significant, in that the inset on the 1846 edition showed Oregon going north into Canada, while the present inset shows Oregon Territory constrained by the boundaries of the Treaty of 1846. Texas includes virtually all of present-day New Mexico. Another two additional inset maps ("Map of the North- Eastern boundary of the United States According to the Treaty of 1842" showing the Maine-Canada boundary, and "Map of the Southern part of Florida") are carried over from earlier versions of the map. There are also two population tables. As with all of Mitchell's early maps of the United States, the main map extends no further west than the 95th meridian (eastern Texas). Due to the tremendous territorial growth west of the 95th meridian brought about by the Mexican War (1846-48), the map was discontinued after 1850. The map, engraved by J.H. Brightly, also appeared at least once (1843) in a pocket map format, with the thirty-two town plans on a separate sheet. Not in Phillips' MAPS, which lists the 1843 edition. The present map is significantly different in size than the 1848 Mitchell wall map described in Rumsey 2300. An important map showing territorial gains made in the Mexican War.
