        The Gold Regions of California: Being a Succinct Description of the Geography, History, Topography, and General Features of California. Including a Carefully Prepared Account of the Gold Regions of that Fortunate Country

      Dewitt & Davenport, New York 1848 - 80, [10]pp. Frontispiece map. Ads in the rear. Publisher's gilt lettered wrappers, contemporary manuscript titling to the spine. Housed in a red cloth box. Provenance: J. H. Carter, Jr. (contemporary signature on wrapper) First edition of "some of the earliest reports of the gold discovery" (Kurutz): in the publisher's gold printed wrappers. Foster culls reports from Farnham, Colton, Mason, Doniphan, Fremont, Emory, et al. "This is one of the first published accounts of the gold discovery in book form" (Streeter). In addition, it is the first book devoted to the Gold Rush to include a map of the region. The woodcut map depicts from Los Angeles in the south to as far north as Three Buttes, with the region around Sutter's Fort circled with hash marks and indentified as Gold Region. There is some bibliographic confusion as the title on the wrapper varies slightly from the letterpress title. Sabin and Howes mention the wrapper title as the title of the first edition, although, as Kurutz points out, the present is the first, and here in the preferred wrappers lettered in gold. Cowan II p 219 (later edition); Graff 1387; Howes F287; Kurutz 250a; Mintz 160; Sabin 25225; Streeter sale 2529; Wheat Books 77; Wheat Maps 39. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Magnifique lettre de Juliette Drouet à Victor Hugo après une nuit passionnée.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 4 In-8 4 août [1848] vendredi matin 11h bon Magnifique lettre d'amour après une nuit passionnée : "Je n'ai pas la folle prétention d'espérer une seconde édition de mon bonheur d'hier, mon doux adoré, je sais trop bien que ces bonnes choses là ne se prodiguent pas tous les jours. Je m'estimerai encore très heureuse si tu peux me donner quelques instants d'intimité sous les arbres de l'esplanade. Là se bornent mes voeux pour le moment. Je demande peu au bon Dieu afin qu'il me l'accorde, c'est une discrétion qui ne me réussit pas toujours à mon grand désappointement. Mais que je t'aime, mon Victor, toujours de plus en plus quoique je ne t'aie jamais aimé moins depuis près de seize ans que cela dure. As-tu pensé à moi depuis hier ? M'as-tu désirée ? M'as-tu regrettée ? Moi je ne suis pas sortie de la contemplation de mon bonheur. Pendant que mon corps allait et venait, se levait ou s'allongeait, ma pensée et mon âme étaient avec toi et ne te quittaient pas. Ce que j'ai fait, ce que j'ai vu, ce que j'ai dit, je ne m'en souviens pas. Ce que j'ai senti, ce que j'ai aimé, ce que j'ai désiré, c'est mon bonheur, c'est toi, c'est mon amour. Jamais âme débarrassée de son corps n'a vécu d'une manière plus indépendante des choses de ce monde que ne l'a fait la mienne depuis hier. Mon Victor, je t'adore, à tes genoux. Juliette." Comédienne, maîtresse de Victor Hugo. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Scheme of Settlement.

      [1848] 1848 - 3pp draft manuscript legal agreement, folio, on paper watermarked ?Stradling 1846? Augustus, Dickens?s youngest brother, married Harriet Lovell at Trinity Church, Marylebone, on 5th December 1848. The document here is a draft marriage settlement between ?Augustus Dickins? (sic) and Harriet?s Guardians & Trustees (Harriet was a minor), Charles Dickens being one of the latter. Harriet went blind, and Augustus deserted her in 1857/8 for Bertha Phillips, with whom he lived as man & wife in America until her death. On his 1868 Reading Tour, Dickens decided not to perform in Chicago for what Dolby calls ?entirely private? reasons: ?the presence of Bertha Phillips & her children, there? (Letters XII, p.62). After Bertha?s death, Dickens wrote to the Editor of The Daily News on 14 January 1869 (Letters XII, p.274) to correct a report of the ?Death of Mrs Augustus Dickens? ? The widow of my late brother (i.e. Harriet Lovell) . is a lady now living, and resident in London; she is a frequent guest at my house; and I am one of the trustees under her marriage settlement .?

        The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

      T.C. Newby, Publisher, London 1848 - FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE. Three-quarter green morocco over cloth with marbled endpapers. Bound without the terminal ad leaf in Volume One but retaining the rare and important half-title to that volume (none called for in Volumes Two and Three). The half-title has been strengthened at the inner margin, and a closed tear at the inner margin of the final text leaf of Volume One has been repaired, with no loss of text. Anne Brontë's second and last novel, and her only separate publication. It tells the story of Helen Graham who, in defiance not just of convention but of the law, flees her abusive, alcoholic husband and takes up residence in the titular hall where she supports herself and her son by painting. Women at the time had no legal existence apart from their husbands. According to collector and bibliographer Michael Sadleir, this title is the rarest of all the Brontë sisters' novels, rarer even than Wuthering Heights of which it is supposed there were between 250 and 350 copies printed. An important book and a true rarity. Smith, Brontë, 4.

        Views of Calcutta and its environs

      Dickinson & Co, London 1848 - (27 1/4 x 19 3/4 inches). Lithographed throughout. Hand-coloured title and 27 views on 25 leaves by Dickinson & Co. after d'Oyly (one folding, all heightened with gum arabic). Publisher's red cloth-covered boards, the upper cover blocked in gilt with a large architectural vignette incorporating the title, expertly rebacked and retipped with red morocco, the flat spine divided into five compartments by single thick fillets, titled in the third compartment, marbled endpapers A fine copy of the rare deluxe hand-coloured issue of Sir Charles d'Oyly's masterpiece According to Abbey this work was published for 6 guineas plain and 10 guineas hand-coloured, as here. The very fine hand-colouring of the deluxe issue adds a depth and vibrancy to the scenes that is mostly lacking from the uncoloured version. In our experience, copies with genuine contemporary hand-colouring were always bound in red half morocco by the publishers. (The Abbey copy is in green half morocco and hand-coloured; but this was almost certainly done later.) The deluxe issue of this work is one of the three great books on Calcutta by English artists (the works of Thomas Daniell and James Baillie Fraser being the other two). It is also a celebration of the synthesis of cultures that took place in India and reached its early maturity in the city of Calcutta and its environs. In some cases this is not immediately obvious: an almost entirely western scene 'St. Paul's Cathedral, Calcutta' contrasts with the view of the 'Mosque at Borranypore', an entirely Indian scene. However in most cases there is a harmonious mixture of Indian and British subject matter which gives d'Oyly's views their unique flavour. They were intended to display the vigour and confidence of British empire builders in an exotic location but end up being much more than this. D'Oyly's love and deep knowledge of the Indian sub-continent means that he is able to capture the small details which were missed by most European artists of the time. Born in India, Sir Charles d'Oyly was educated in England, before returning to India in the service of the East India Company in 1798. By 1808 he was Collector of Dacca, and in 1818 succeeded to baronet. After serving in a series of posts throughout India, culminating in his appointment as Senior Member of the Board of Customs, Salt and Opium, and of the Marine Board in 1833, he returned to England in 1838, and retired in 1839. He is now best known for his work as an amateur artist and publisher of lithographs (he set up his own lithographic press at Patna in 1828: 'The Behar Amateur Lithographic Press'). Bishop Heber, who stayed with him at Bankipore, wrote that d'Oyly was 'the best gentleman artist I ever met with' and this is certainly borne out by the present work which includes excellent views of many of the main sights of Calcutta.

        Physiologie du Gout . Notice biographique par Alph. Karr.

      Paris Gabriel de Gonet 1848 - 8vo., xxiii, 416pp., engraved frontispiece and seven engraved plates by Bertall, illustrated title-page vignette, numerous wood-engravings in the text, original pictorial gilt blind-stamped black cloth, all edges gilt, a very attractive copy. Never out of print, in a series of meditations that owe something to Montaigne's Essays, and have the discursive rhythm of an age of leisured reading and a confident pursuit of educated pleasures, Brillat-Savarin discourses on the pleasures of the table, which he considers a science. The simplest meal satisfied Brillat-Savarin, as long as it was executed with artistry. The father of low-carbohydrate diet, Brillat-Savarin considered sugar and white flour to be the cause of obesity. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Einband an den Kanten angeplatzt, innen nur vereinzelt braunfleckig, kaum gelockert, insgesamt von überraschend guter Erhaltung, es fehlen die großen Prämienblätter. Ein Werk, das über die Historie der jeweiligen Ortschaften unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der klerikalen Belange und der damals aktuellen Situation informierte. Es dauerte über zwei Generationen, bis zu Beginn des 20.

Die "alte" Galerie aber verfügt über zahlreiche Steindrucke der jeweiligen Kirchen, bei größeren Städten auch vieler Profanbauten, die nach Federzeichnungen von G. Täubert entstanden (Steindrucker Renner bzw. Ketzschau). Diese kleinen Kunstwerke geben nicht nur sehr detailgetreu die Architektur und Zustände der betreffenden Bauwerke wieder, der Künstler bemühte sich, diese in ihrer gesamten Umgebung wirken zu lassen und vergaß auch nicht, die Stilleben durch Menschen und Tiere zu beleben.

        A collection of 32 hand-colored lithographs from "Views of American Cities"]

      Goupil Vilbert & Co, New York & Paris 1848 - 32 hand-colored lithographs by Deroy, printed by Cattier. Images approx. 7 1/2 x 11 inches. Each matted in hand-painted French mats. A collection of 32 handsome and important views in the United States and Canada, 1848-1851 Born in Württemburg in 1812, Köllner's first recorded work dates from his employment at the age of sixteen by the Stuttgart printer Carl Ebner to work on portfolios of etchings of horses and other animals. He came to America in 1839 and settled in Washington briefly, before moving to Philadelphia in 1840 where he lived and worked for the next 60 years. The present group of prints are from what was probably his most important commission and certainly brought him to the attention of the art-buying public. Köllner's body of topographic work "makes a distinct contribution to the documentation of the nineteenth-century American scene" (Deak p.334). Kollner had a fine feel for the modulations of light and shadow, many of his scenes are captured in late afternoon with soft blue skies and light clouds and the sunlight playing on the sides of buildings and streets in the deeper hues of sunset. The group includes views in New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Baltimore, Niagara Falls, Quebec and Montreal. They comprise: Baltimore - Washington Monument Baltimore - Battle-Monument Washington - General Post-Office Washington - Capitol (East View) Washington - Capitol (West View) Mount Vernon - Tomb of Washington Philadelphia - Fairmount Water-Works Philadelphia - U. S. Custom House (formerly U. S. Bank) Philadelphia - State House Philadelphia - S. E.

        A three years cruise in the Mozambique Channel [cruize]

      Bentley 1848 - xxxiv, xiii, 319 pages ; 19 cm. Publisher's red boards rebacked on black cloth. Hardcover. Library stamps and markings, edges stamped. Mendelssohn I, p. 82. "The expedition left Mauritius on the 9th of December 1842, and was actively engaged in carrying out the objects of the cruise during nearly the whole of three years, in the course of which many visits were paid to the ports and islands of the eastern and southern coasts of South Africa. During part of the year 1846, the ship (H.M.S. Thunderbolt) was engaged in doing transport work for the Kaffir War, and there is a narrative of some incidents of the campaign. Early in 1847 the Thunderbolt was ordered to Algoa Bay to embark the 90th regiment, but unfortunately she struck a sunken rock near Cape Recife, in sight of her destination. Strenuous exertions were made to save the vessel, but in spite of the aid of two ships, the Eurydice and the President, she became a total wreck." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"This is one of the first published accounts of the gold discovery in book form" (Streeter). In addition, it is the first book devoted to the Gold Rush to include a map of the region. The woodcut map depicts from Los Angeles in the south to as far north as Three Buttes, with the region around Sutter's Fort circled with hash marks and indentified as Gold Region.There is some bibliographic confusion as the title on the wrapper varies slightly from the letterpress title.

        Histoire de l’Afrique et de l’Espagne intitulee al-Bayano ‘l-mogrib

      Leiden, 1848 - 1851 - First Edition. First two parts of Kitab al-bayan al-mughrib fi akhbar muluk al-andalus wa’l-maghrib (Book of the Amazing Story of the History of the Kings of al-Andalus and Maghreb) an important medieval text on the history of the Maghreb and Iberia, written in Arabic in Marrakech in about the year 1312 by Ibn Idhari. It is widely regarded among modern researchers as containing valuable information not found elsewhere, including excerpts from older works now lost. It is generally known by its short title al-Bayan alMughrib. The author himself divided the work into three parts: 1- History of the Maghreb from the coming of Islam to the twelfth century. 2-History of Al-Andalus (Muslim Iberia) over the same period. 3- History of the Almoravids and Almohads. While the Arabic text of the first two parts has been known for some considerable time, portions of the third part only came to light during the 20th century. This part is still known only in incomplete form because of missing pages (including beginning and end) and insect damage to the manuscripts. This is the first published Arabic text of the first two parts by Reinhart Dozy; the third part was not published until 1929 by Levi Provencal. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Ferguson, Bibliography of Australia, Volume IV, page 172, 4717: "An attempt to assist bush mothers in the education of their children, other means of instruction being absent. One of the earliest Australian educational treatises". Dr. George Mackaness (1882 - 1968), born in Sydney, was a distinguished Australian educator, historian and bibliophile. He married Alice Symons in 1906. He trained as a teacher and spent many years as English master at Fort Street Public School, Sydney. His book "Inspirational Teaching" was widely acclaimed. He was in charge of the English Department at Sydney Technical College from 1924 to 1946. He was on the board of the Commonwealth Literary Fund, and a trustee of the Public Library of NSW. He was a longtime member of the Royal Australian Historical Society, and president in 1948-9. He wrote over 70 books and journal articles, including a life of William Bligh (1930) and Arthur Phillip (1937). Between 1935 and 1962, he edited and privately published in limited editions, a series of Australian Historical Monographs (later reprinted by Review Publications, Dubbo), consisting of valuable original research plus reprints of key but forgotten historical pamphlets. He amassed in his Drummoyne home probably the largest private collection of Australian books. This huge library was sold via three catalogues issued by Angus & Robertson in 1966. Mackaness was president of the Book Collectors Society of Australia for two years (1958-9). He was awarded the OBE in 1961 and an honorary DSc (Syd) in 1961, Wikipedia, see also the Dictionary of Australian Biography. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        Die Befestigung von Wien gegen anrükende Feind... [The Fortification of Vienna Against Opposing Enemies...]

      [Wien]: Gredruckt bei Joseph Ludwig, [1848]. First Edition. Proposal issued shortly before the Vienna Uprising of October, 1848, during which violence broke out between the laboring class of the city and the Hapsburg army as the latter was trying to leave in order to quell the Hungarian Revolution. Löve, most likely a university student at the time, proposes that Vienna would best be defended if the walls surrounding the inner city were to be dismantled (they would be irreparable if damaged by enemy bombardment) and the moat filled in for building development. Unlocated in OCLC or KVK, though noted in James E. Walsh, 1848 Austrian Revolutionary Broadsides and Pamphlets (1976), p. 143, dating the broadside to June 31, 1848. Löve issued another five or six titles listed in Walsh, one signed in type "Redacteur [I] der Studentenzeitung," (editor of the student newspaper); another "Redakteur des Stürmers" (editor of "The Strikers"). Broadside (50.75x42cm.) printed blackletter; previous folds, two corners neatly clipped not approaching text, else Very Good to Near Fine.

        Digest of Evidence taken before Her Majesty's Commissioners of Inquiry into the State of the Law and Practice in Respect to the Occupation of Land in Ireland.

      Dublin, Printed by Alexander Thom for Her Majesty's Stationary Office, 1847 / 1848. - First Edition. Two Volumes. 21 x 13 cm. Part 1: viii, 702 pages. With three foldouts and numerous tables / illustrations in the text. / Part 2: viii, pages from 703 to 1172. With two foldouts and tables. Original dark green textured cloth. Hard cover with gilt titles on spine. Very good condition. Corners, boards and spine slightly ruubed and bumped. Spine darkened to brown. Joints started to crack in places, but binding remains sound. Some dust dulling. Mild foxing,mainly to end papers, first and last few pages. Very few pencil underlinings, otherwise internally very clean. The Devon Commission (officially 'Commission on Occupation of Land (Ireland)') was a commission that was appointed by Sir Robert Peel to research the problems with land leases. It was formed in 1843 and reported 1845. This was a positive step for the government as it made the Irish believe that reform would come soon afterwards. This was the first time that a British government had taken a step towards reforming the unfair leases. The Devon Commission was headed by William Courtney, the 10th Earl of Devon, and it reported in 1845 that the population of Ireland had exploded from 6 million people to close on 8 million people. Similarly, they concluded that the leases were unfair and were favorable to the landowners (who were usually Anglo-Irish). The majority of Irish tenants had no form of protection, they could be, and often were, summarily evicted. The Devon Commission had wide reaching consequences and though too late to prevent the famine, it did galvanize change afterwards. (Wikipedia). From the Introductory Chapter: 'The whole of that vast mass of evidence taken by the commissioners in reference to the mutual relation existing between the proprietors and occupiers of land in Ireland, is at once conclusive, painfully interesting, and the most portentous in its character. It proves that the safety of the country, and the respective interests of both those classes, call loudly for a cautious but immediate adjustment of the grave questions at issue between them'.

The History of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, a major literary achievement of the 18th.century published in six volumes, was written by the celebrated English historian Edward Gibbon. The books cover the period of the Roman Empire after Marcus Aurelius, from just before 180 to 1453 and beyond, concluding in 1590. They take as their material the behaviour and decisions that led to the decay and eventual fall of the Roman Empire in the East and West, offering an explanation for why the Roman Empire fell. Gibbon's methodology was so accurate that, to this day, little can be found to controvert his use of primary sources for evidence.
