        Wuthering Heights A Novel By the author of "Jane Eyre "

      New York: Harper & Brothers, Publishers,, 1848. Octavo (185 x 125 mm). Recently rebound in black half calf, original marbled paper boards, titles to red morocco label to spine, gilt raised bands. Contemporary ownership inscription to third front and the rear binder's blanks. Slight worm damage to edge of front free endpaper, small loss to corners on 5 leaves, an excellent copy. Second edition overall, and the first American edition, published in April 1848, at 75 cents, with the publisher's misattribution on the title page of this book to Charlotte Brontë. The second English edition was not published until December 1850. The first edition, with Anne Brontë's Agnes Grey, was rushed out by Thomas Cautley Newby in December 1847, in the wake of the unexpected success of Jane Eyre, published by Newby's rivals, Smith Elder. Newby then embarked on an advertising campaign to confuse the identity of the three Bell "brothers", suggesting that all the novels were the work of one person: hence the mistaken attribution on the title page here.

        Das Nibelungen Lied or Lay of the Last Nibelungers.

      Berlin: published by Alexander Duncker, bookseller to His Majesty the King of Prussia,, 1848. Translated into English verse after Professor Carl Lachmann's collated and corrected text by Jonathan Birch. Octavo (218 × 150 mm). Near-contemporary Italian vellum over boards, red morocco label, spine richly gilt in compartments, sides bordered in gilt and with title in gilt to front cover, marbled endpapers. This copy extra-illustrated with a suite of 35 photographic plates, mounted on card and bound in on stubs. Spine label just a little worn at rear joint, a few minor spots, an excellent copy attractively bound and extra-illustrated. First edition in English of the Nibelungenlied, published in Berlin at the behest of Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia; this copy suitably extra-illustrated with plates reproducing the fresco paintings of the Nibelungenlied by Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872) in the royal palace at Munich. The translator Jonathan Birch (1783–1847), a personal friend of the Prussian king, based his work on the edition of the philologist Karl Lachmann (1793–1851), who had proposed genealogical groups for the entire range of available manuscripts. Birch had moved from England to Prussia but died while the work was still in the press. The great German national epic, the Nibelungenlied had fallen into obscurity after the medieval era and was only rediscovered in 1755. The popularization of the Nibelungenlied over the course of the 19th century reached its apotheosis in Wagner's Ring Cycle. With an original autograph letter from Miss Sophie L. McAlpine, dated 4 January 1913, explaining the circumstances of the book's binding, and a few other pieces of associated manuscript material.

        Nine Years in Van Diemen's Land... An Essay on Prison Discipline... with Anecdotes of Bushrangers...

      Dundee: W. Middleton, 1848. Duodecimo, some toning, bookplate of Charles R.J. Glover; a very good copy in the original green ribbed cloth, fraying at the hinges and a few bumps. One of the better and most detailed accounts of life in Tasmania, based on the experiences of a settler who arrived from Liverpool in 1836, and full of interesting anecdotes about everyday life in the colony.Syme is particularly good on farming, agriculture and natural history, and his intimate observations and monthly reports on conditions in Tasmania give a lively insight into the colony, much in the tradition of White's famous account of Selbourne. The account is full of revealing comments such as 'the bondicoot is a mischievous little visitor to potatoe grounds'. Syme was also employed in the prisons system for five years, and his extensive notes are a far cry from abstract theorising, with all manner of stories and examples drawn from his personal experience. His "Essay on Prison Discipline" includes potted biographies of many more notable Tasmanian convicts. Syme returned to the United Kingdom on the Tamar in 1847 and published this work shortly after.

        Orange-fronted Epthianura (Epthianura Aurifrons).

      London: published by the Author, 1848. Hand-coloured lithograph (510 x 350 mm), with letter-press text. Delicately hand coloured original lithographic plate from Gould's most famous work, Birds of Australia, one of the great natural history publications of all time.Known more commonly today as the Orange Chat, Epthianura Aurifronis was noted by Gould at the time to be of greatest rarity. As both a dedicated ornithologist and entrepreneurial publisher, Gould's lasting contribution to was his lavish series of colour plate folios. Indeed, his biographer Allan McEvey asserts that 'nothing can detract from this gargantuan achievement that ranks highly in the world's ornithology' (John Gould's Contribution to British Art, 1973).Birds of Australia was one of Gould's most successful publishing endeavours. The series of plates was issued in a limited edition of 250 copies, after which the original lithographic stones were effaced to ensure no further copies could be printed. Of these, some 180 copies were sold by subscription, with the remainder offered as splendid bound volumes. Individual plates from the Birds of Australia are now both scarce and eagerly collected.

        Past, The Present, and The Future

      1848. First Edition . CAREY, Henry. The Past, The Present, and The Future. London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1848. Octavo, original blind-stamped green cloth. $1500.First English edition of this important economic treatise by “the American apostle of optimism” (Roll, 275).Although Carey began his career in political economy as a die-hard supporter of the free market, in 1844, “he renounced his belief in laissez-faire for good in his book Past, Present and Future (1848) despite the fact that during this era the idea of free trade was gathering considerable momentum worldwide” (ANB). A founder of the so-called “nationalist school,” CareyÂ’s ideology came to resemble the Utopian European social reform school so popular in the Scandinavian countries and Western Europe. “In his Past, Present, and Future, Carey announced a law of production from land the exact reverse of RicardoÂ’s. With a great wealth of illustration, he laid down the principle that, in the progress of society, men first till the easily worked and poorer solids, and descend upon the richer lands as capital and numbers increase, so that with the advance of the community the rate of return from the land rises instead of falling” (Palgrave I:226). The work was so controversial that John Stuart Mill wrote Principles of Political Economy to refute it. With publisherÂ’s catalogue. The first American edition was published the same year. Early owner inscription. BooksellerÂ’s ticket. BinderÂ’s ticket.Slight dampstaining to endpapers, a few finger smudges to text, faint spotting to rear board, and toning and a bit of wear to extremities of original cloth. An extremely good copy.

        The Ethiopian Glee Book Containing the Songs Sung by the Christy Minstrels With Many Other Popular Negro Melodies in Four Parts, Arranged for Quartett Clubs, No. 2

      Elias Howe, Boston 1848 - Relatively light edge and corner wear with some surface toning and soiling along with a scuff on front upper left and minor tears and chips. The backstrip that covers the spine has a slit for about two inches up on the back, but the binding is still square and secure. Remarkable condition for an antebellum songbook. This was Book 2 of a set of four that, I think, expanded upon a single volume issue (lacking the reference to the Christy Minstrels) that was published around the same time. The author, Gumbo Chaff, was fictitious; the book was written y Elias Howe. This is a very early minstrel collection. It is also of interest in its presentation of what types of songs were associated with African-Americans at the time. ; Oblong 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 59-111 pages [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
