        Elogio Historico de Jose Banks, Lid na Sessao Publica da Academia Real das Sciencias de 22 de Janeiro de 1843.

      Lisboa: na Typografia da Mesma Academia, 1848. Quarto, 11 pages, laid paper watermarked 1843, preserved in a buckram sleeve and slipcase. Attractive copy of a very unusual work, a paper presented in Portuguese in 1843 on the life of Sir Joseph Banks. Manoel Maria José da Costa was an influential man of letters and scientist, for many years secretary of the Academia Real des Sciencias de Lisboa. Although not as well-known as Banks, his writings show a similar range and deal with a broad variety of scientific subjects, so it is possible to speculate that da Costa saw some sort of affinity with the illustrious Banks. Having said that, the mind boggles at just how Sir Joseph would have responded to being referred to throughout da Costa's lecture as "José".This is a highly uncommon pamphlet, and seemingly not known to the Banks scholar Harold B. Carter (see his Sir Joseph Banks (1743-1820) A guide to biographical and bibliographical sources). The text rather dusted and a few spots; in early (possibly original) plain pink paper wrappers, rather worn at edges and spine, marking from a later bookplate, but a very good copy.

        Sarawak; Its Inhabitants and Productions: being Notes during a Residence in that Country with His Excellency Mr. Brooke.

      London: Richard Bentley, 1848. Octavo, with 7 engraved plates; a good copy in contemporary half calf. The first issue (the title-page was subsequently amended to read "H.H. The Rajah Brooke") of Low's account of Sarawak at the beginning of a century of rule by the British Raj.James Brooke, a former military officer of the East India Company, had visited the territory (now part of Malaysia) in 1839 and assisted the sultan in suppressing a revolt. He was rewarded in 1841 by being granted the position of rajah of Sarawak. Despite his endeavours to suppress head-hunting, Low's account provides detailed observations of this practice, as well as information about a number of tribes, to many of whom he represented the first point of white contact. Respined.

        Louis-Philippe ex-roi des Marionnettes, ou Polichinel devenu philosophe.

      - Paris, chez les marchands de nouveautés, s.d. (1848-1849). Grand in-8° (246 x 158 cm), demi-maroquin bleu nuit à grands coins, dos lisse orné d'un riche décor romantique doré en long, filets dorés sur les plats, plats et gardes marbrés, tête dorée, couvertures et dos conservés (rel. Champs-Stroobants début XXe), (92), 192 p., non rogné, très nombreuses vignettes sur bois. Remise en vente, en janvier 1849, de cet ouvrage conçu sous la Monarchie de juillet mais publié quelques jours après la Révolution de 1848, avec une nouvelle couverture, nouveaux faux titre et page de titre, pour tenir compte des changements politiques. Outre la qualité et l’originalité de son illustration et de ses nombreuses vignettes sur bois, originalité soulignée par Grand-Carteret, ce livre satyrique du peintre, dessinateur caricaturiste, illustrateur et lithographe Alcide-Joseph Lorentz (1813-1891) se présente une forme originale: le texte ne débute qu'après une trentaine de pages d'illustrations légendées par intertitre qui présentent les atermoiements de l'auteur, un "Polichinel" minuscule en butte à de cauchemardesques obstacles pour rédiger sa préface. La Révolution de février ayant éclaté au moment de sa publication et Louis-Philippe ayant été renversé, le livre ne rencontra qu’un succès réduit. Quelques rousseurs sur le faux-titre et le titre. (J. Grand-Carteret, ‘Mœurs et caricature en France’, p. 126. Vicaire, V, 394). Ex-libris gravé "F.-M. Caye". Bel exemplaire dans une très belle reliure au décor romantique, signée Champs-Stroobants.

        ENCARNACION PRISONERS: COMPRISING AN ACCOUNT OF THE MARCH OF THE KENTUCKY CAVALRY FROM LOUISVILLE TO THE RIO GRANDE, TOGETHER WITH AN AUTHENTIC HISTORY OF THE CAPTIVITY OF THE AMERICAN PRISONERS...BY A PRISONER

      Louisville, Ky, 1848. 96pp. Half antique calf and marbled boards, gilt spine title. Titlepage bit tanned, some light scattered foxing. Very good. The first of two editions of this work noted by Howes, to which he does not ascribe priority. However, as the other edition which he cites identifies the author, it is most likely that the present edition precedes it. A particularly interesting account of the campaigns of the 1st Regiment of Kentucky Cavalry, including a relation of the experiences of the several units who were captured and imprisoned by the Mexicans at Encarnacion, fifty miles south of Saltillo. The description of the Trinity, Red River and southern regions of Texas is particularly good, and appended is a list of the prisoners, as well as some correspondence relevant to the matter. A very rare work, not in Eberstadt, Decker, or the Streeter Sale. HOWES S231 ("b"). GRAFF 3714. SABIN 78306. TUTOROW 3503.

        9 autograph letters, signed, mostly from the writer's time as Préfet maritime in Brest]. Brest, 22 February 1819 - 18 June 1829. Folio and 4to. Autograph letters in French, written in brown ink on single and double leaves of several laid and wove paper stocks. With: (2) GHÉMAR, Louis-Joseph. Duperré [lithographic portrait].Brussels, Charles Hen (printed by P. Degobert), dated 1842 by the artist.

      - For Duperré: F. Chassériau, Vie de l'Amiral Duperré (1848); for Ghémar: Louis Ghemar (1819-1873): photographe du roi (1992). Significant collection of 9 autograph letters by Guy-Victor Duperré (1775-1846), a French admiral, Pair de France and three times Naval Minister. The letters, all sent from Brest, are addressed to important French naval officers and ministers, including: Cristophe, Comte de Chabrol de Crouzol; Jean Guillaume, Baron Hyde de Neuville (1776-1857) and "Mon Cher Amiral", most likely Laurent Jean François Truguet (1752-1839). The letters were written from 22 February 1819 to 18 June 1829 (6 of them in 1828). They concern political and maritime issues and events related to Duperré's naval service. From 1812 to 1814, Duperré commanded the French and Italian naval forces. In 1827, he was appointed Préfet maritime of Brest and inspector of the 5th arrondissement militaire. On 5 February 1830, eight months after the last letter in the present collection, King Charles X appointed him commander of the fleet of the expeditionary forces that carried out the 1830 invasion of Algiers. Seven of the nine letters are written in Duperré's informal running script. One appears to have been written for him, perhaps by dictation, but he added a nine-line postscript in his usual running hand below his signature. One to the minister of the marine is carefully and neatly written in a formal hand, with the lines perfectly horizontal (the lines of Duperré's running script slope upward across the page), but that may be his own formal hand, used only when the occasion demands.Accompanying the letters is a lithographic portrait of Duperré, drawn on stone and dated 1842 by the lithographic artist Louis-Joseph Ghémar (Lannoy, France 1819-Brussels 1873), better known for his later work (from 1855) as a photographer in Antwerp and Brussels and court photographer to the King of Belgium.Most of the letters were formerly folded, probably for sending in envelopes. In good condition.

Contemporary green polished half calf, green cloth boards, red morocco label, gilt rule and decoration to raised bands, gilt and blind rule to boards, marbled endpapers and edges, bound without the half-title. Frontispiece, vignette title page, 38 plates by "Phiz" (H. K. Browne), and extra-illustrated with 12 other engraved plates by Phiz. Ownership inscription and Centenary Testimonial stamp to front free endpaper. Light wear to extremities, some foxing to endpapers, a little oxidisation to plates as usual, an excellent copy. First edition, extra-illustrated with the 12 character plates by "Phiz" (eight engraved solely by him and dated 1848, four vignetted within an oval frame and engraved by both "Phiz" and Robert Young). "With the author's sanction, 'Phiz,' co-operating with Robert Young, etched four extra plates for this work. They were fine portraits of Little Paul, Edith, Florence and Alice, and much praise was bestowed on them. Also were made eight additional full length portraits of the other leading characters" (Eckel p. 76). This additional set was issued later the same year by Chapman and Hall. The two sets went on sale at one shilling and two shillings respectively and "sold briskly" (Paul Schlicke ed., The Oxford Companion to Dickens, 2011, p. 61). This edition marks a number of firsts for the illustrator: not only does it include the first published example of a so-called dark plate ("On the Dark Road", p. 547), but it also contains the first five examples of Browne's horizontal illustrations.

        Travels in the Great Desert of Sahara, in the Years of 1845 and 1846. Containing a Narrative of Personal Adventures, during a Tour of Nine Months throught the Desert, amongst the Touaricks and other Tribes of Saharan People; Including a Description of the Oases and Cities of Ghat, Ghadames, and Mourzuk.

      London: Richard Bentley, 1848 - 2 volumes, octavo (221 x 137 mm). Original green morocco-grain cloth, titles to spines gilt, decorative frames to boards in blind, Glasgow coat of arms gilt-stamped to front boards, pale yellow endpapers. Glasgow High School prize copy with bookplates to front pastedowns. Spines sunned, corners and spine ends bumped, inner hinges of Volume II cracked but holding firm, short closed tear to folding map stub. A very good set. Engraved frontispieces, 24 woodcuts in text, and one engraved folding map. First edition of this account of James Richardson's (1806–1851) first expedition to Africa. Richardson was an English explorer and ardent anti-slavery campaigner; he considered the slave trade to be "the most gigantic system of wickedness that world has ever seen" (Wright, Libya, Chad and the Central Sahara, p. 68). In 1845, Richardson joined a Sahara-bound expedition leaving Tripoli. With it, he travelled to "Ghadames, became the first European to visit Ghat, and, after a nine-month long and arduous journey through Fezzan, arrived safely back in Tripoli" (Embacher, cataloguer's translation). His account includes descriptions of the major cities in the Fezzan region, trade routes and oases, as well as the culture, religion, and traditions of the Tuaregs. Richardson also frequently refers to the trans-Saharan slave trade and the position of slaves in local Tuareg communities, a subject he had already discussed in his "Report on the Slave-Trade of the Great Desert", written for the Anti-Slavery Reporter and Aborigines' Friend upon his return to London in 1846. Upon publication, The Journal of the Royal Geographical Society wrote of Richardson's Travels: "These volumes are useful contributions to our knowledge of the interior of the imperfectly known regions of Northern Africa; and they describe some hundreds of miles of desert routes over which no Europeans had previously passed, as well as several of the cities of the Desert, of which we had not before received accounts from European visitors" (JRGS, vol. 18, p. lix).

Hawthorne, as surveyor.With mounting debt and a growing family, Hawthorne moved to Salem. A life-long Democrat, political connections helped him land a job as surveyor in the Salem Custom House in 1846, providing his family some needed financial security. However, when Whig President Zachary Taylor was elected, Hawthorne lost his appointment to political favoritism. The dismissal turned into a blessing giving him time to write his masterpiece, The Scarlet Letter, the story of two lovers who clashed with Puritan moral law. The book was one of the first mass-produced publications in the United States and its wide distribution made Hawthorne famous.

        Eigenhändiger Brief mit U. und Notenzitat im Text. Dresden, 8. I. 1848.

      1848. 4 SS. 8vo. Äußerst inhaltsreicher Brief an den Komponisten Carl Wettig in Wusseken (Pommern), in den Schumann große Hoffnungen setzte, wie aus seinen Briefen an die Verleger Härtel und Whistling hervorgeht. "Wegen der Herausgabe Ihrer Compositionen bin ich [...] wieder auf andere Gedanken gekommen. Es sind jetzt schlimme Zeiten im Handel, wie Sie wißen, und dies hat denn natürlich auch auf den Musikverlag Einfluß. Unterlassen Sie daher lieber für jetzt die Herausgabe des Concertsatzes m. Orchester. Das ist schon kein kleines Unternehmen für einen Verleger, und ich fürchte, sie schlagen Ihnen eine Honorar forderung rundum ab. Bieten Sie Härtels vor der Hand die 'Sehnsucht' als Opus 1, und das Scherzo in B moll als Opus 2 an. Sobald die Herren dann sehen, daß Ihre Musik anklingt (und die besten Hoffnungen hege ich dafür), so können Sie dann später Ihren Concertsatz noch einmal so vortheilhaft anbringen. Als Honorar für das Lied und das Scherzo fordern Sie 6 Louisdor und berufen sich dabei, wenn Sie wollen, auf meinen Rath. Das Scherzo ist Ihnen wieder vortrefflich gelungen, bis auf die Stelle [hier 2 Takte Noten) die mir etwas trocken vorkömmt, behagt es mir sehr, namentlich das Trio und der Rückgang in's Scherzo. Das Adagio für Streichinstrumente mag sehr schön klingen. Ist's ein Satz aus einem größeren Stück? Dann schicken Sie auch die anderen Sätze!". - Der folgende Absatz, in dem Schumann auf den ihm wohl von Wettig vorgetragenen Plan einer Oper eingeht, zeigt, wie nahe ihm, dem mit der Textierung seiner "Genoveva" mühevoll Beschäftigten, dies Thema lag: "Wegen der Oper möchte ich Ihnen dies erwiedern: Alles Theoretisiren und Schreiben hilft zu nichts. Sie müßen die Sache anpacken, irgend einen Stoff aus der Geschichte oder der Dichterwelt [darübergeschrieben: "Phantasie"] herausgreifen. Dann erst läßt sich weiter rathen. Nehmen Sie Shakespeare, Calderon, vielleicht auch Boccaccio zur Hand, ordnen Sie sich einen Stoff musikalisch und bühnengerecht und suchen dann eines Dichters habhaft zu werden, der Ihnen den Stoff in Verse bringt. Rechnen Sie nie darauf, von einem Dichter etwa zufällig einen Operntext zu erhalten, den Sie gebrauchen könnten. Sie müßen selbst die erste Hand anlegen. Interessant wäre mir zu erfahren, in welchem Alter Sie stehen, dann auch, was Alles Sie denn in den letzten drei Jahren componirt haben. Oder noch beßer - halten Sie Ihr Versprechen und kommen auf einige Zeit zu uns. Das sollte uns Freude machen. Meine Frau spielt Ihre Compositionen mit großer Freude - und wie sie sie spielt, würde Ihnen, glaub' ich, nicht mißfallen [...]". - Jansen Nr. 326 (lückenhaft). Schumann hatte am 8. August d. J. an Friedrich Whistling in Leipzig über Wettig geschrieben: "Eine große Freude hatte ich in den vorigen Tagen. Aus einem Flecken in Hinterpommern, der nicht einmal auf der Land- karte zu finden, schickt mir Einer, Namens Wettig mehrere Compositionen, darunter ein Clavierstück mit Orchester, das mir als etwas ausgesucht Vorzügliches vorkömmt - meine Frau soll es, denk' ich, in L. gelegentlich spielen. Nun schrieb ich ihm, das Stück müße gedruckt werden - und warte seine Antwort ab. Ihnen aber möchte ich rathen, das Stück sich nicht entgehen zu lassen, wenn er es Ihnen anbietet, da ich Sie ihm als Verleger vorgeschlagen. Auch hab' ich mir vorgenommen, ihn selbst durch die mus. Zeitungen einzuführen. Seit Gade ist er der Erste wieder, der mich wahrhaft interessirt" (Erler 51). - Kleine Papier-Reparaturen. - Jansen Nr. 326 (lückenhaft).
