        [ENGLISH GAME-KEEPER'S MANUSCRIPT]. Cover Title: "1848 No. 2. Journal to be kept by William Bell, Keeper Westward Parks

      Westward Parks, Cumberland, England, 1848. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo. Unpaginated ledger with tabs for A-Z (altogether 53 pages with handwritten notes, the first six being the author's description of the what the Journal will contain; towards the end is a section of 8 handwritten pages containing "The original Code of Instructions given to the [Game] Keepers in 1840. Should always be in the possession of each Keeper and constantly referred to.? The final 5 pages contain a detail list of "Game Killed by [William] Bell" from the year 1848. Bound in contemporary quarter roan over marbled boards (corners and extremities worn, internally excellent). Bookplate of Wyndham Baron Leconfield (see below), with the engraver's name in microscopic lettering: "C.W. Sherborn, Sc[ulpsit] 1894. Fascinating manuscript Journal of a known English game-keeper. The very long title inside of the front cover reads: "1848: A Journal of observations of facts connected with game of all sorts, birds, beasts, and fishes and any circumstances of Natural History that may be worthy to be recorded. Mode of keeping the journal. It must be understood that no fact is to be recorded that the person does not personally observe and know to be true. All entries should be made at the time of observation and nothing trusted to memory, which is often treacherous and leads to errors. The chief use of these annual records consists in their truth and exactness. The following are some of the subjects to which attention must be give, and each subject entered at its own letter in the ledger." William Bell gives additional details about the intended scope of the MS and the methodology of its compilation. For birds: "Date and place where the first [bird] egg was seen, also when the first brood was observed, and where, &c." For hares and field-fare: "Date when the first young are seen and where, &c." For dogs: "Any think remarkable in their habits, breeding, diseases, &c." Bell provides a valuable assessment of his work as a game-keeper: "An intelligent Keeper with his eyes open and his wits about him may collect and furnish a great deal of valuable information on the above named and many other subjects, to make this book useful." At the time the present MS was compiled, Westward Park (Cumberland) was owned by George Wyndham, 1st Baron Leconfield (1787-1869) for whom the Journal was written, and who is named throughout simply as "The Gen." As we read from the 1847 Cumberland Directory, the woods of Westward Park contained 400 acres. Written in the MS itself: "This Book to be delivered at Cockermouth Castle (Cumberland) at the end of the year, when another will be given." Whereas the Journal is named "No. 2" we have been unable to located any other survival from the series. Evidently the present MS remained at Cockermouth Castle, and at some point after 1894 the bookplate of "Wyndham Baron Leconfield" was affixed inside the front cover; this individual was Henry Wyndham, 2nd Baron Leconfield (1830-1901). Following the alphabetical entries is a long series of "Observations," some of which are here transcribed: ?Cucoo On the 4th May. I heard the Cucoo in the high park. Curlew on the 25th of August. I shot a Curlew on Thistlebottom although a great number breed on our ground, it is the first I ever killed after the twelfth of August. About the last week of July or first week of August you may see dozens of them but they always leave the ground before the twelfth for the sea shore. I frequently find a nest they lay four eggs. The color of the Plover?s egg but much larger being the size of a very large duck egg. I like to see plenty of Curlew?s. They always give warning if any person be on the ground with dogs. You may hear them whistling and baiting the intruders for a mile.? ?Shooting in General. On the 5th Jan. The Gen. and Mr. Laverick came to shoot in the woods. The first day Mr. Laverick had fourteen shots and killed seven, 4 Woodcocks and 3 Cock Pheasants. The Gen. had no chances almost that day. The next day Mr. Bragg came. I don?t know how many shots Mr. Laverick had that day. He killed 1 Woodcock, 1 Wen Phes. and a hare or two. The first shots was misses. The Gen. killed 1 Woodcock, 1 Cock Phes. The best shot I ever saw and five or six hares. If the Gen. had had a dog or two he would have killed a great deal more. I never saw anyone yet that could shoot the Gen. in the woods. They are often very quick and ugly shots. The more difficult the chance, the more sure is the Gen. to kill. I don?t think so much of Mr. Laverick?s shooting in the woods. He seems so agitated when his dogs has a point. I had often heard it said that he never missed but I soon saw different. The dogs made a point on Realthwaite Green at a Woodcocks. The Gen. killed it very quick when it was half way to the ground?..The Gen., me and a boy was standing in the line. He (Laverick) hit the Gen. but not to draw blood. He need not have shot it as the Gen. had disabled it before we could have taken it up. Mr. Laverick has a very awkward way in carrying his gun??? ?Snaring on Monday 17th April. Hodgson the policeman of Wigton caught Scott the besom maker that we had a warrant out against. It was in Oct. when we caught him. He was fined 1 pound and 15 sixpences, all the Potters in Wigton subscribed for him and paid the fine. I believe the potters and broom makers are most of them poachers. The best plan is to keep them out of our woods altogether. They only give a few shillings for the Birch tops every year.? ?Phest [Pheasant] and Par. [Partridge] shooting. On the 6th Oct. the Gen., Mr. Bragg, Capt. Grant and Capt. Flemming came to shoot at Westward. They shot two day. They killed 15 hares, 14 partridges and 2 Pheasants. The Gen. and Mr. Bragg beat the two Captains.? Further literature: Mannix & Whellan, "History, Gazetteer and Directory of Cumberland" (1847).

      Prima edizione. Testo francese. Cm.23x14. Pg.VIII, 216. Legatura successiva in mz.tela con piatti originali applicati alla coperta. Esemplare in barbe, con segni d'uso ai tagli. Leggere bruniture dovute al tipo di carta utilizzata. Minime chiose d'epoca a inchiostro. Si tratta della rara prima edizione della lucida analisi del Cattaneo sugli episodi salienti delle Cinque giornate di Milano, che lo avevano visto protagonista alla direzione del Consiglio di Guerra. La datazione dell'"Avant-Propos" dell'Autore, "Paris, 30 septembre 1848" segnala che l'opera venne composta a Parigi, dove il Cattaneo si trovava, proveniente dall'esilio luganese, per incarico del Mazzini. Il Cattaneo impiegò circa un mese per la compilazione, e il testo circolò grossomodo dal novembre 1848 al marzo del '49, quando la sconfitta dell'armata piemontese a Novara ne decretò la messa al bando. "Dopo il 1848 Cattaneo si volge, con consapevole e non recriminante rinuncia, ad analizzare con acutezza, sebbene con qualche asperità critica, gli avvenimenti della guerra, pubblicando quei poderosi documenti della sua intelligenza storiografica, che sono "L'Insurrection de Milan", scritta a Parigi nel 1848, e poi, in edizione italiana, a Castagnola nel 1849, e l'"Archivio triennale", raccolto negli anni successivi e rimasto incompiuto" (Guido Quazza). > Ampio spazio viene dedicato alla genesi dell'opera dal Parenti in "Rarità bibliografiche dell'Ottocento", VI, pg.136-139, "La più nota delle sue opere è certamente la relazione, da lui scritta e pubblicata a Parigi, sulle giornate dell'insurrezione milanese. C'è un po' di confusione nella determinazione della prima edizione, sia del testo originale francese, sia della traduzione italiana largamente rifatta e ampliata: chi crede che le prime due siano apparse a Bruxelles, come il D'Ancona - Bacci; chi attribuisce soltanto all'edizione italiana di Bruxelles la priorità, come gli stessi Levi e Vismara. Quanto alla prima, nel testo francese, non ci può essere dubbio: è quella parigina dell'Amyot. Il Cttaneo iniziò il lavoro nell'agosto [...] Tre giorni dopo era già incominciata la composizione e il Cattaneo mandava giorno per giorno il manoscritto al tipografo [...] Il 22 settembre era incominciata la stampa [...] La notizia della fine: "il mio libro è uscito", la data il 29 ottobre, insieme con l'annuncio della partenza per Basilea". "Edizione originale, rara". Caddeo, 82. Predari segnala erroneamente come prima l'edizione francese di Bruxelles dell'anno successivo. Codice libreria 134537.

        Autograph letter signed ("AVHumboldt"). Potsdam, 11. VI. 1848.

      1848. Large 8vo. 1 p. on double leaf. Written during the European Revolutions of 1848 to an unnamed minister about Arnold Mendelssohn (1817-1854), a cousin of the composer Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy: "Darf ich es wagen, theuerste Excellenz, mitten unter den zunehmenden unheimlichen Bewegungen der Hauptstadt Sie an Ihr Wohlwollen für mich, an die Bittschrift zu erinnern, die Sie die Gewogenheit haben wollten, in meinem Namen (in Angelegenheit der hoch betrübten Mendelsohnschen Familie) dem König zu überreichen. Die Sache liegt mir schmerzhaft am Herzen! [...]". - In 1846, Arnold Mendelssohn had become involved in the so-called "Casket Affair", which ruined his life: for the theft of a casket, the content of which was thought to be vital to Ferdinand Lassalle's court case, he was sentenced to five years imprisonment and lost the privilege to practise as physician. His accomplices, Alexander Oppenheim and Lassalle, were acquitted. Alexander von Humboldt interceded on his behalf, and Mendelssohn was pardoned in 1849, but was banished from Germany. - Somewhat wrinkled; the reverse of fol. 2 slightly spotty.

        Vanity Fair A Novel without a Hero

      London: Bradbury and Evans,, 1848. With Illustrations on Steel and Wood by the Author. Octavo (206 × 128 mm). Later 19th century full calf by Riviere & Son, richly gilt spine, dark red morocco label, two-line gilt border on sides, all edges gilt, richly gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Etched frontispiece, vignette title, 38 plates, 83 wood-engraved vignettes and 66 wood-engraved initials after Thackeray. A couple of slight abrasions to spine, customary oxidisation or foxing to plates. A handsomely bound copy, with the leaf before the title page advertising The Great Hoggarty Diamond. First edition; of Vanity Fair's traditional points of issue this copy has the drop-head title in rustic lettering to page 1, the "Marquis of Steyne" vignette on page 336 (later suppressed), and "Mr Pitt" for "Sir Pitt" (on page 453, line 31), although, as it was originally published in twenty parts between January 1847 and July 1848, a number of these points would have been amended before serialization was completed and the book form issued by the publisher. "Modern editions of this classic novel almost invariably omit Thackeray's vignettes and often give only a selection from his etchings. The reader is deprived thereby not only of much amusement but also of important clues to the meaning of the story" (Ray).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Berlin, 24. IX. [1848].

      1848. 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An ein Fräulein aus Wien mit einem Eindruck aus Italien, das sich eben im Ersten Unabhängigkeitskrieg befand und wohin er im Januar des Jahres zu einer Kavaliersreise aufgebrochen war, und die Revolution: "[...] Meine Reise kürzte sich nun sehr. Rom verließ ich im Maerz, Neapel den 16ten May, tags nach der Revolution, deren blutiger Eindruck die letzten Stunden in diesem zauberischen Orte trübte. Wie anders fand ich mein Deutschland wieder, wie schmerzlich sah ich mich enttäuscht, und meine Begeisterung für die neue Zeit, wie voreilig. Alles das sah ich in Frankfurt ein, wo ein zweimonatlicher Aufenthalt mich in die deutschen Verhältnisse einweihte [...]". - Nach einem erfolgreichen Debut als Lustspielautor aus dem Regierungsdienst austretend, verfaßte der promovierte Jurist in Folge zahlreiche, an französischen Vorbildern (vor allem Eugène Scribe) orientierte Lustspiele und verschiedene Prosaarbeiten. Sein Märchenidyll "Was sich der Wald erzählt" (1850) erlebte bis zur Jahrhundertwende 50 Auflagen und zahlreiche Übersetzungen. Auch veröffentlichte Putlitz Autobiographisches sowie eine kommentierte Ausgabe der Briefe und Tagebuchaufzeichnungen Karl Immermanns; von 1863-67 war er Intendant des Hoftheaters in Schwerin, seit 1873 in der gleichen Funktion in Karlsruhe tätig.

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

      Exeter: W.Spreat, 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.

      St. Louis, 1848. 24pp. 12mo. Later plain wrappers. Small paper abrasion below author's name on titlepage, small chip to upper margin of one leaf, just touching the border, old dampstain to bottom corner of last few leaves, bound close at inner margin. Very good. In a half morocco box, spine gilt. The supremely rare first edition of "one of the most utilized and quoted authorities for the emigrant route through South Pass to Salt Lake" - Wagner-Camp. Decker referred to the work as "[p]erhaps the most accurate and certainly one of the scarcest of all overland guides." The guide describes sources of water, topographical features, camping sites, and provides distances in miles from point to point, measured by Orson Pratt's "roadometer," all intended for the Mormon emigrants moving west in the mid-19th century. Clayton had been a prominent member of the advance Mormon migration in the spring of 1847, traveling west from Mormon Winter Quarters on the Missouri River to Salt Lake. Clayton was the person to whom Prophet Joseph Smith revealed the doctrine of plural marriages in 1843, and then he served as clerk of the Mormon camp at Council Bluffs before arriving at Salt Lake. As such, Clayton was able to compose the present work from personal observations. Thomas W. Streeter held Clayton's work in high esteem, praising the guide in his sale catalog: "This first detailed guide book to the country west of the Rockies is one of the basic books on the opening of the West and the principal source for all later guides." Howes describes the work as the "[b]est guide for the itinerary covered, Council Bluffs to Salt Lake" and affords the book a "dd" for rarity, his highest classification reserved for "superlatively rare books, almost unobtainable...." The Streeter copy sold for $2,000 in 1968, and now resides at the Clements Library. Only a few copies are known in private hands, and only seven copies reside in institutions, namely at the University of Michigan, Clements Library (Streeter copy), the Mormon Church Archives, the Huntington Library, the Newberry Library (Graff copy), New York Public Library, Harvard, and Yale (Coe copy).

        The Bengal Obituary:

      Calcutta: Printed for Holmes & Co. at the Baptist Missionary Press,, 1848. or a Record to perpetuate the Memory of Departed Worth: being a Compilation of Tablets and Monumental Inscriptions from Various Parts of the Bengal and Agra Presidencies, to which is added Biographical Sketches and Memoirs of such as have pre-eminently distinguished themselves in the History of British India, since the Formation of the European Settlement to the Present Time. Octavo (236 × 155 mm)) Contemporary "native" half sheep, black moiré cloth boards, lettered in gilt direct to the spine, dotted roll to the bands which are framed by p[airs of gilt rules. A little rubbed and bumped, light browning to the text, but overall very good. First edition. Uncommon, just 8 locations on Copac. Fascinating reference work, well described in a contemporary review in the Spectator: "This book, which has travelled to us from Calcutta contains the epitaph of the Europeans who have been buried in the Presidencies of Bengal and Agra, provided they have got a monument or tombstone - a something, in short, to preserve their name. The arrangement is geographical, according to churchyards or burial-places, but there is an index of names. There is no respect for persons in the book: the corporal is admitted as freely as his colonel; and the space he occupies depends upon himself or his executors - it is measured by the length of his sepulchral eloquence. The biographical sketches relate to distinguished or remarkable persons who have been in India, though they may not have been buried there, always provided they have a monumental inscription in the Presidencies, if only a tablet. Among these sketches are Hastings, Wellesley, and Coote; but we have not found Clive - a singular omission. The lives of the larger men are not of much account, but those of the more purely Indian celebrities are useful; and the book is curious altogether" (Spectator, 22 December 1849). An attractive and well-preserved copy.

        Meliboeus-Hipponax. The Biglow Papers,

      1848. first edition. First Edition of The Biglow PapersIn a Fine Onlaid Binding by Sangorski & Sutcliffe[SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE, binders]. [LOWELL, James Russell]. Meliboeus-Hipponax. The Biglow Papers, Edited, with an Introduction, Notes, Glossary, and Copious Index, by Homer Wilbur? Cambridge [Mass]: George Nichols, 1848. First edition. Small octavo (7 1/8 x 4 1/2 inches; 180 x 113 mm.). 12, xxxii, 163, [1, blank] pp. Elaborately bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe ca. 1915, stamp-signed in gilt on lower rear turn-in. Full olive green morocco, covers richly decorated with four plain and dotted borders enclosing a central panel with rows of alternating dots and flowers with highly intricate gilt floral sprays at corners. In the center an onlaid red morocco and richly gilt decorated mandorla with leafy fronds accented with onlaid green morocco 'berries'. Spine with five raised bands, elaborately decorated in a gilt strapwork design and lettered in gilt in compartments. Gilt board edges, quadruple gilt ruled turn-ins, gray liners and end-leaves, top edge gilt. Spine very slightly and evenly sunned, very slight, almost imperceptible crack to upper joint, otherwise near fine. With the engraved bookplate of renowned bibliophile Roderick Terry (1849-1933) on front paste-down."There is more to be said for The Biglow Papers. Lowell's motivation for writing the pieces was commendable; he wrote them to attack the Mexican War, which he abhorred for dividing American society and occasioning the spread of slavery to conquered territory. And Lowell created two other effective characters in the work to play off against Biglow's simple honesty, one Birdofredum Sawin, who serves Lowell's purpose by ineffectively opposing Biglow, and the Reverend Homer Wilbur, a silly pendant, who, with Sawin, serves as a foil to underscore Biglow's down-home virtue" (Shuchard, American Poetry, p. 89).James Russell Lowell (1819-1891) was an American Romantic poet, critic, editor, and diplomat. He is associated with the Fireside Poets, a group of New England writers who were among the first American poets who rivaled the popularity of British poets. These poets usually used conventional forms and meters in their poetry, making them suitable for families entertaining at their fireside. Lowell graduated from Harvard College in 1838, despite his reputation as a troublemaker, and went on to earn a law degree from Harvard Law School. He published his first collection of poetry in 1841 and married Maria White in 1844. He and his wife had several children, though only one survived past childhood. The couple soon became involved in the movement to abolish slavery, with Lowell using poetry to express his anti-slavery views and taking a job in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as the editor of an abolitionist newspaper. After moving back to Cambridge, Lowell was one of the founders of a journal called The Pioneer, which lasted only three issues. He gained notoriety in 1848 with the publication of A Fable for Critics, a book-length poem satirizing contemporary critics and poets. The same year, he published The Biglow Papers, which increased his fame. He went on to publish several other poetry collections and essay collections throughout his literary career.BAL, 13068; Grolier, 100 American Books printed before 1900 #57.

        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.

      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 José 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.

        The Count of Monte Cristo

      Simms and McIntyre, UK 1848 - New Edition 1848. Second printing of the true first edition in English based on the original text. This text first appearance in English of "Le Comte De Monte Christo."; complete as issued in three parts of The Parlour Novelist and the first and only translation into English based upon the original text of the novel. ) The Simms and M'Intyre translation by Emma Hardy (credited as being the first English translation in the foreword to the 2008 Oxford University Press edition of Monte Cristo) was clearly based on the original text of the novel as it first appeared in the Journal de Debats.The confirmation of this can be found in two rather minor but essential points of issue; the date of 24th of February in the first line of the novel (later revised to 28th February) and the spelling of "Christo" with an "h" throughout; this spelling was the one retained in the Paris and Brussels editions and was only changed to Cristo for the first illustrated edition (Paris, Au Bureau de L'Echo Des Feuilletons, 1846). The second English translation was the one commissioned by Chapman and Hall. This was This was based upon the revised text of the novel, with the date of 28th of February in the first line and the "h" dropped from Christo. The source text was most likely the above mentioned L'Echo Des Feuilletons edition. According to Munro and Sadleir the Chapman and Hall edition (May) appeared after the Simms M'Intyre Parlour Novelist vol. 3 (March). Complete sets of the 3 volumes of the Simms M'Intyre edition are very rare. Three volumes bound as one retaining the original title pages. A very rare edition. Book is fine and bright.

        Autograph letter signed. Dresden, 19. V. 1848.

      1848. Large 4to. 2¾ pp. on double leaf. With autogr. address. Important letter of political content, written to the German politician and stenographer Franz Jacob Wigard (1807-1885), at the time member of the Frankfurt Assembly, the first freely elected parliament for all of Germany. In his peremptory letter, Wagner laid down what in his opinion were the principles that ought to guide the Frankfort meeting. He looks to the meeting of the German National Assembly in Frankfurt to assume unified power from the old Bundestag, to introduce rearming the German people, to make a defensive treaty with France and, finally, to create a rational and coherent German nation out of the myriad of princely states, both large and small, overcoming the opposition of the Princes themselves, emphasizing that only then can the Assembly begin its work and without which all their good work so far will be undone. "I am apprehensive of much harm", he wrote, "if the German Parliament does not in the first instance resolve on the following: (1) that Parliament at once vests the sole constitutive power in itself, as well as the authority to nominate a Provisional Executive from among its members; (2) immediate introduction of Folk-arming after the model known to us; (3) an offensive and defensive alliance with France [...] Let the fourth step be the Territorial question of the German States. If the Frankfort Assembly intends to create a constitution that will unite Germany, it must first address itself to the inequality of the individual States: it must appoint a commission to formulate proposals for a rational and natural construction on the basic principle that no single State shall have less than four or more than six million inhabitants. That is the definitely decisive point, without the establishment of which all our labours would be merely patchwork [...]". - A fine letter outlining Wagner's political views and his desire to see a unified German nation, in the wake of the 1848 Revolution in France and turmoil within Germany. Barricades were put up in Dresden and the king was presented with demands for constitutional reform. Wagner joined the revolutionaries, hoping that this would lead to the reform of a National Theatre. His letter was prompted by the convening of the National Assembly at Frankfurt on 18 May, and is addressed to the Saxon Delegate at the Assembly, Jacob Franz Wigand, who had earlier been dismissed from the University at Dresden for his radical political views. - Published in the "Sämtliche Briefe", II, no.256, after a press-cutting in the Wagner Archives and without reference to the original. - Torn margins repaired, dust-marked.

Buchner trug entscheidend zur wissenschaftlichen Begründung seines Fachs bei; 1815 rief er das vorliegende "Repertorium" ins Leben.

        Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei. Veröffentlicht im Februar 1848. London, Hirschfeld, "1848" [i. e., 1861].

      1848. 8vo. 24 pp. Blue unprinted original wrappers. In blue custom-made morocco-backed slipcase with chemise. One of three variants, all dated 1848, of the first edition of "one of the outstanding political documents of all time". Of the utmost rarity; the last copy in the trade was auctioned in 1976, offered as a "nearly unknown issue published in the year of the first edition" (cf. Hauswedell, 28 April 1976, lot 575, DM 45,000) and commanding a higher hammer price than the genuine first edition in its green original wrappers (same sale, lot 574, DM 36,000). While two other copies of this latter variant are listed in book auction records of the past decades, the present copy, in its original blue wrappers, of the later and apparently rarest variant of the first edition remains the sole specimen ever to have appeared in the trade since 1976. The bibliography of first printings ("Erstdrucke", published by the Marx-Engels-Lenin-Stalin-Institute of the SED-ZK, as was later the MEGA) states the year of publication as "1848" for all three variants; Kuczynski, however, provides a terminus ante quem non of 17 November 1860 for the Hirschfeld edition, with a terminus post quem non of 4 December 1861. - "Admitted by every serious student of society to be one of the outstanding political documents of all time [...] the 'Manifesto of the Communist Party' outlined outlined the main positions of Marxism as a theory of history, a criticism of Socialist doctrine and a program of revolutionary action" (PMM). - Slightly browned due to paper; mild foxing near beginning and end. Upper right corner slightly wrinkled. Minute edge defects and browning to blue original wrappers, but very well preserved altogether. Kuczynski p. 97f., nos. 177-182. Marx-Engels Erstdrucke, p. 14. Rubel 70, 3. MEGA I/6, p. 684. Cf. PMM 326.

        Portrait drawing of Hesing. Signed ("Hesing") in bold black ink at the foot beneath his portrait, also adding the junk name "Keying" and "Brooks" to the head, all with their equivalent Chinese characters beneath. [Blackwall, June 20th, 1848.]

      1848. 8vo. Mounted on cardboard. One addenda (see below). The drawing bears to the upper corner a red ink stamp with Chinese characters, being the seal of Prince Hui Rui. The document has been affixed to a slightly larger card. - Few stains not affecting the signatures. Small folding and creasing. - Together with a colourful visiting card, with Hesing signature, beneath his name in Chinese characters and alongside a Chinese ink red stamp, being the seal of Prince Hui Rui. The card has been affixed to a slightly larger card with a typed annotation "Signature of a Chinaman written on board the Chinese junk at Blackwall, June 20th, 1848". - With heavy folding. - The Keying was a three-masted Chinese trading junk that sailed from Hong Kong in December 1846 with a mixed crew of Chinese and British sailors. The vessel had been purchased surreptitiously by a conglomerate of enterprising English businessmen. It was placed under the command of Captain Kellett with the intention of carrying curiosities and merchandise to England and thereafter serving as a kind of floating museum. The Chinese crew members that they were embarking on such an extended journey were not aware of such plans. The Keying arrived in New York City on July 9, 1847, creating a sensation, with seven thousand visitors per day. - In late March 1848, the Keying arrived in London to great fanfare, and several different medals were struck to commemorate its appearance, including one that had a bust of Madarin Hesing. It was visited by the Queen Victoria, whose right to be the first European woman to visit it was reserved, The Duke of Wellington and Charles Dickens. - It has been suggested that the Chinese Emperor was aware of the project from the start and secretly kept informed about it, and that the mandarin served as an informer to report back in detail.

        Rapport adressé à Monsieur le délégué du gouvernement provisoire sur les traitements orthopédiques de M. le docteur Jules Guérin à l'hôpital des enfants, pendant les années 1843, 1844 et 1845

      Paris, Bureau de la Gazette médicale, 1848. grand , (4), 202, (2)pp percaline bleue de l'époque, titre doré sur le plat supérieur et au dos 1848, 1848, in-4, grand , (4), 202, (2)pp, percaline bleue de l'époque, titre doré sur le plat supérieur et au dos, Unique édition de ce rapport sur les pratiques orthopédiques et chirurgicales du docteur Guérin. Par un arrêté du 7 août 1845, l'ancien conseil général des hôpitaux et hospices civils de Paris nomma une commission chargée de suivre la pratique clinique du docteur Guérin afin de constater les résultats qui pouvaient être obtenus des traitements orthopédiques, et afin de déterminer si Jules Guérin avait admis et traité dans son service un certain nombre de sujets dont les maladies ne rentraient pas dans la spécialité qui lui était confié. La commission avait donc à charge de déterminer une limite entre la chirurgie et l'orthopédie proprement dite. Ce long rapport constitue une compilation particulièrement rare de 63 cas de difformités et de maladies (strabisme, torticolis, déviations de l'épine, luxations congénitales, déviations des genoux, pieds-bots, difformités arthralgiques, difformités par rétractions de cicatrices, courbures et cals vicieux, excurvations tuberculeuses et abcès par congestion). Finalement après 3 ans d'observation, la commission émettra "le voeu que le service chirurgical qui a été confié [à Jules Guérin] lui soit conservé" du fait des progrès médicaux qu'il a imprimés à la science des difformités et l'art de les traiter. Bon exemplaire malgré quelques rares rousseurs et une infime pliure sur l'extérieure des pages. Reliure passée, coiffe supérieure et coins usés

Outlines of the most interesting portion of the chequered life of that singular individual. Designed and Drawn by 'W.A.G.'. Unfinished ms. strip cartoon. 11 captioned illustrations on 4pp oblong 8vo with additional ms. titlepage & port. of Adolphus Gosling. Bound in royal blue fine-grained cloth, paper title label on front board. Three items. Purchased together with other artefacts relating to the Roget family from the library of Anne and F.G. Renier. Two delightful manuscripts by John Lewis Roget, 1828-1908, the son of Peter Mark Roget, best known for his publication of the Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases in 1852. Mr Pipp, with 44 accomplished illustrations and accompanying text, relates the comic tale of Mr. Pipp the barber and his attempts to woo Mrs. Plum, a widowed grocer. Baffled by Mrs. Plum's rejection of his advances, Mr. Pipp sets about improving himself in order to win her hand. First he learns to dance: another rejection; then he buys a wig: rejection. Finally, he takes to losing weight through hill walking, weight lifting, gymnastics and even playing cricket. Mr. Pipp finally finds some peace - but does Mrs. Plum finally accept his advances? ...Rodolphe Töpffer, 1799-1846, was a Swiss school teacher credited with being the creator of the earliest European illustrated comic strip. Created for the entertainment of his pupils, Töpffer published his first collection of cartoons, Histoire de M. Vieux Bois, in 1837. Translated into English and published as The Adventures of Obadiah Oldbuck in 1841, Töpffer's comic strips were a clear influence on Roget. Although there is no record of Mr Pipp appearing in print, Roget published, in 1859 and 1860, two illustrated comic 'scrap-books' entitled A Cambridge Scrap-Book and A Volunteer's Scrap-Book. A Shepherd Once Had Lost His Love was a popular song from Storace's Drury Lane Opera The Chorokee, 1794. With a manuscript half title and titlepage, Roget sets out three versions of the tale; the musical score and lyrics, the three cantos with accompanying textual criticism at the end of the volume, and an abridged illustrated copy. The two volumes are accompanied by a third unfinished illustrated manuscript in a similar style but possibly not by Roget.
