        The Personal History of David Copperfield

      London: Bradbury & Evans. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION in book form in of one of Dickens's most beloved novels. An exceptionally clean copy, very handsomely bound. "Dickens was evidently beginning to think of his next novel in Bildungsroman terms-that is, the story of a young man's life from infancy to maturity-and named his sixth son (b. January 1849) after Henry Fielding 'in a kind of homage to the style of work he was now so bent on beginning' (Forster, 524). David Copperfield (published 30 April 1849 - 31 October 1850), follows on naturally from all the foregoing. It is Dickens's first first-person novel (David as narrator calls it 'my written memory') and in it he draws, much more directly than hitherto, on events and people from his own personal life in 'a very complicated interweaving of truth and fiction'. The misery of the blacking factory days (his notes for writing the number describing little David labouring in Murdstone and Grinby's bottling factory contain the poignant phrase 'What I know so well'), the details of his career as a young journalist, and the raptures of his love for Maria Beadnell are all presented with only the lightest fictional disguise. In depicting the Micawbers and their recurrent crises Dickens draws on the personalities and former financial problems of his parents. Although the novel's initial sales were rather lower than those of Dombey, Copperfield received considerable critical acclaim and before long was widely held to be his greatest work. Undoubtedly it became for very many readers, then as now, his best-loved novel, an opinion in which Dickens himself coincided, calling it in a preface to the book of 1867 his 'favourite child'" (Dictionary of National Biography). With first state engraved title (dated) and all first issue points noted by Smith except for 'screamed' corrected ('screwed'), p.132, line 20 (as usual). London: Bradbury & Evans, 1850. Complete with engraved title, etched frontispiece, and 38 plates by Phiz. Octavo, early full polished calf gilt by Hatchards; gilt dentelles, all edges gilt. Light rubbing and wear to joints and spine ends (everything tight). Text and plates remarkably clean - the cleanest copy we've handled.

He left the colony after a conflict with the governor-general about the expansion of authority in Sumatra. 'Veth published the book because it clarified a little-known episode in colonial history. In Veth's view, it underscored the need for the Netherlands to concern itself more actively with the administration of the Outer Islands. In an annotated introduction running to over a hundred pages Veth reviewed the history of Dutch military action on Sumatra' (Van der Velde, P.J. Veth, p. 119).

First German edition of Exposition de la théorie des chances et des probabilités (Paris, 1843). 'Cournot's unusual and cogent use of probability . is developed most extensively in his Exposition (1843) and is used ingeniously and productively in his Essai (1851), Traité (1861), and Matérialisme, vitalisme, rationalisme (1875). Long before putting these views to philosophic use, Cournot had applied them to problems in astronomy and in various fields of social studies, notably in economics, where he applied them with lastingly important results' (Encyclopedia of Philosophy).

Kalm's account met with great success and is a classic in North American travel literature. A Swedish botanist, Kalm travelled in America from 1748 to 1751. His primary purpose was to discover plants that could thrive in Sweden, but his observations range much wider. He discusses the American Indians, the value of colonies and numerous other subjects. His work contains a truthful account of the countries visited. Linnaeus, who instigated Kalm's voyage, immortalized the him by naming the America Laurel "Kalmia" in his honour. J.R. Forster, a German naturalist who accompanied Captain Cook, translated Kalm's account into English.Each volume with the armorial bookplate of William Rashleigh I (1777-1855) or more likely II (1817-1871). In very good condition. The binding has some cracks in the joints and a few surface abrasions and worm holes, but is still good.

        Narrative of an Expedition into Central Australia?

      T. and W. Boone, London 1849 - Two volumes, octavo, with folding map and fifteen plates including six lithographs (both chromolithographic and handcoloured), partially unopened; original blind blocked green cloth with gilt lettering; apart from some light-coloured spotting to the cloth sides an excellent set, complete with the publisher's advertisements. First issue, in the original cloth. First edition, first issue, with the three advertisement leaves for Lort Stokes, Leichhardt and Melville noted by Wantrup. A well preserved set in original green cloth, of Charles Sturt's last expedition to Coopers Creek and the Simpson Desert. His journey into the harsh interior of the continent was one for which he had petitioned over many years. One of its most important results was the final (and most reluctant) abandonment of any hope for the discovery of an inland sea. Sturt and his party of fifteen suffered dreadfully. They were trapped at Preservation Creek in the Grey Range for nearly six oppressive months after summer heat dried up all water in the surrounding country. The party was ravaged by scurvy, losing its second-in-command, and Sturt himself survived the return journey by using Aboriginal food sources. He received the rarely awarded gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society. This work is noteworthy for its detailed and engaging plates, some of which were engraved from field sketches by Sturt himself. The four attractive chromolithographic plates are after natural history studies by John Gould and Henry Constantine Richter. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Four Years in the Pacific in Her Majesty's Ship "Collingwood." From 1844 to 1848

      London: Richard Bentley, 1849. Two volumes, each with frontispiece and half-title, 24 textual illustrations; a handsome set in half blue morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, spines banded and gilt. An attractive set of the first edition of this lively account of the Pacific at mid-century. Walpole served on HMS Collingwood, the flagship of Rear Admiral Sir George Seymour and the first British ship-of-the-line to enter the Pacific Ocean via Cape Horn since the voyage of Lord Anson in 1741. 'Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Juan Fernández, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Mexico, California, the Hawaiian Islands, and Samoa were visited. The Collingwood arrived at Monterey a few days after the American flag had been raised there by John Drake Stoat' (Hill). A lengthy note in Forbes testifies to the book's importance to Hawaii. The Collingwood anchored at Byron Bay, Hilo in August 1846. There is a good description of Hilo and the vicinity, and a particularly fine description of the author's trek to see the volcano of Kilauea. Otherwise, there is an account of an official audience at the palace and the king's visit to the Collingwood in Honolulu. Many of his observations on native life and mores was based on the opportunity for first hand description, the result of a fall which led to him convalescing in a place with a view of the Valley of Nuuanu. A second edition was published in 1850, and an English-language reprint in Paris the same year.

      Copenhagen: C.A. Reitzel, 1849-, 1851. Three volumes, octavo, tinted lithographs; a very good set, uncut in the original quarter purple cloth with printed labels, brown boards. The Galathea in the East Indies and the Pacific. Scarce official account of the first Danish circumnavigation. The Galathea made her voyage between 1845 and 1847. Forbes notes that the purpose of the mission was the exploration '(with the idea of establishing a colony) of the Nicobar Islands; encouraging and wherever possible forming trade agreements with foreign governments; and scientific exploration and discovery'. Bille's book describes the various visits made: of particular interest are the expedition's calls in the East Indies; at Singapore, Pulo Penang and Java; at Macao, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Canton; Hawaii and Tahiti; and in South America. The Hawaiian section spreads to most of three chapters. Though much of Bille's narrative centres on the modern political history of the islands, he also reports his audience with the king and queen, provides an insightful description of Honolulu and even details its social life. The plates are lithograph reproductions of Paul Plum's drawings. Three of them concern Hawaii - one of them a fine portrait of Kamehameha III and his queen.

      . Bleistift, auf bräunlichem Velin; mit Bleistift verso bezeichnet "Doll". 20,8:16,5 cm. Im Bildfeld rechts oben und unten leicht stockfleckig. Möglicherweise ist dieser Landschaftsausschnitt bei einem Aufenthalt am Brenner entstanden.. Doll wurde als Architekturmaler und Lithograph bekannt. Schon als Schüler zeigte er ein ausgeprägtes Zeichentalent. Zunächst Jura an der Münchner Universität studierend, widmete er sich ab 1849 ganz der Malerei. Drei Jahre später wurde er Mitglied des Münchner Kunstvereins, der schon früh seine Arbeiten ausstellte. Doll, dessen Werke von H. Bürkel (1802-1869), A. Stademann (1824-1895) und M. Neher (1798-1876) beeinflusst sind, malte zunächst vorwiegend Veduten und Aquarelle mit "Alt-Münchner Stadtmotiven", die sich bald großer Beliebtheit erfreuen sollten. Auf Reisen durch Bayern und die Schweiz schuf er zahlreiche Aquarelle, Zeichnungen und Lithografien mit Dorfansichten und Landschaftsdarstellungen an, wobei sein bevorzugtes Motiv das historische Architekturbild war, das er meist in einer lyrisch, oft winterlich-nächtlichen Stimmung zeigt; auch die Darstellung der unterschiedlichen Jahreszeiten spielte eine Rolle. Motive mit historischen Bauwerken fertigte er auch vom Inntal, vom Brenner und Bodensee, in Augsburg, Nördlingen und Dingolfing an.

        British ROYAL LETTERS PATENT issued for 'Improved Machinery for Blooming Iron' to John F. Winslow, an American Iron Manufacturer Who Helped Build the USS Monitor during the Civil War

      1849. First Edition. Various. Very Good. First Edition. ROYAL LETTERS PATENT for "Improved Machinery for Blooming Iron" issued to Alfred V. Newton on behalf of John F. Winslow and associated documents, various dates 1847-1849. 3 documents on vellum, all related to the application for and granting of a patent in Great Britain for improvements in the machinery used to manufacture iron. The third document references drawings for the patent, which are not present. The documents are in very good condition, with the usual folds and mild soiling. The documents include the Royal Letters Patent (with large wax seal in original tin container), an indenture indicating that Alfred V. Newton of the British patent office was acting on behalf of John F. Winslow, and a third document detailing the invention. The 3 are housed in an early mahagony box (lacking one rail). Various. Previous to the development of the iron clads, ships were made almost entirely of wood. The work done by Winslow and others after this period was an important precursor to the development of the modern navy. John F. Winslow (1810-1892) was an iron manufacturer in New Jersey before becoming a partner at Corning, Winslow, & Co (better known as the Albany Iron Works). Winslow, working with Rensselaer Iron Works, became the prime contractors for the iron plates used in the manufacture of the iron clad civil war ship the USS Monitor. Corning, Winslow and Co built the deck plates, the hull skirt, and the angle iron for the frame. In September 1861, Winslow and Griswold (head of Rensselaer Iron Works) convinced Abraham Lincoln of potential of the monitor, which was built and launched from Brooklyn in January 1862. (-Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Archives) The patent protected John F. Winslow for 14 years during which time others could not use these innovations without permission.

        Mensaje del Presidente de la República al Congreso de 1849.

      Bogota: Ancizar i Pardo, [1849]. - 4to., (12 x 8 ½ inches). Half title (slight offsetting, very occasional spotting). Engraved frontispiece on pâpier de chine (light offsetting to title page). Original publisher's full purple roan elaborately decorated in gilt, each cover with a broad border of gilt fillets and foliate roll tool, with blind tooling at each inner corner, the title stamped in gilt on the front cover surrounded by an inner border of elaborate flower tools repeated on the back cover, the smooth spine elaborately decorated with fine gilt flower tools, with the publisher's ticket on the inside front cover (head and foot of the spine chipped with loss, other extremities a bit worn). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript corrections to the text, ?publisher. First edition. Scarce. Includes a brief biography of President Tomás Cipriano de Mosquera (1798-1878) of the Republic of New Granada, from his enlistment in the Popayán (Colombia) army at age 15, to his involvement in the founding of La República Nueva Granada (which consisted of present-day Colombia and Panama, and parts of modern Ecuador and Venezuela) in 1830, to his rise to the Presidency of the Republic in 1845. Dated March 1, 1849, this "Mensaje" appears to be Mosquera's farewell address to his Cabinet as he left office that year, which he calls the "40 de la Independencia." This is likely a reference to the Luz de América, which, in 1809, was the first call for independence from Spain in the region. In this address, Mosquera looks back on his presidency and touts his many political achievements. Mosquera's presidency of the Republic of New Granada was only the beginning of his political career, however. After he left office, he moved to New York City to devote himself to his family business. While there, he was a member of several scientific societies, and wrote "Memoria sobre la geografía, física y política de Nueva Granada." In 1854, he returned to his homeland to fight in the "artisans' revolution" to overthrow the dictator José María Melo. "By the end of the 1850s, Colombia was torn by civil war as the Liberals and Conservatives fought for control. Mosquera took the side of the Liberals. With the army under his command, he took Bogotá (July 1861) and declared himself president. He ruled as a dictator until a new Liberal constitution was adopted (1863), which provided for a two-year presidential term and changed the name of the country to the United States of Colombia" (Encyclopedia Britannica). During this time, Mosquera enacted several measures aimed at curbing the power of the Catholic Church, and in particular the Jesuits, who still showed strong support for the Conservative factions. He compelled the sale of Church lands which were then redistributed, and Jesuits were banned from the country. In 1863 Colombia went to war with Ecuador, whose Conservative president, Gabriel Garcia Moreno, had attempted to unify the fractious Ecuador by handing power over to the Catholic Church. Mosquera provided aid to the Ecuadorian liberals in order to overthrow Moreno, seeing the opportunity to recreate Greater Colombia by redrawing borders. After Mosquera managed to invade Ecuador and decimate Moreno's troops, the two sides agreed to an armistice, ultimately signing the Treaty of Pinsaqui on December 30, 1863, in which both sides agreed to retain the pre-war borders. After the new constitution was adopted, Mosquera ran for President and was elected. "Not fully trusting Mosquera, the Liberals limited his first term to one year (1864-65). He was reelected in 1865, however, and soon imposed a dictatorship. His rule was overthrown in 1867, and he was exiled for two years. He returned to Colombia to serve as president of the state of Cauca and as senator, retiring from public life in 1876" (Encyclopedia Britannica). There appear to be only six copies in libraries worldwide, so this "Message from the President of the Republic" is quite rare.

        Narrative of an Expedition into Central Australia

      London: T. and W. Boone, 1849. Two volumes, octavo, with folding map and fifteen plates including six chromolithographs (some after S.T. Gill and John Gould); manuscript presentation dated 1874; occasional slight foxing but a very handsome set in contemporary plum calf by Ramage, bookplates of Harold L. Sheard, bound without advertisements. Bound to match, with an inscription from Lady Sturt. The famous original account of Sturt's last expedition, to Coopers Creek and the Simpson Desert: a presentation copy from Sturt's widow to one of the explorer's close friends. A manuscript inscription in both volumes reads: 'Frederick Peake In remembrance of the Author From C.C. Sturt 1874'. Sturt married Charlotte Christiana Greene on 20 September 1834, and she lived until 1887, almost twenty years after Sturt's death. After his death Charlotte was granted a civil list pension of £80 a year, and the queen granted her the title of Lady Sturt. Frederick Peake was a close friend of Charles Sturt, as is evidenced by the correspondence between them printed in the Life of Charles Sturt (1899). Sturt's journey into the harsh interior of the continent was one for which he had petitioned over many years. One of its most important results was the final, reluctant abandonment of the old hopes for the discovery of an inland sea. Sturt and his party of fifteen suffered dreadfully. They were trapped at Preservation Creek in the Grey Range for nearly six oppressive months after summer heat dried up all water in the surrounding country. The party suffered greatly from scurvy, losing its second-in-command; Sturt himself survived on the return journey by using Aboriginal food sources. He received the rarely awarded gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society. The four fine chromolithographic plates are after natural history studies by John Gould and Henry Constantine Richter.

        Further Correspondence on the Subject of Convict Discipline and Transportation?

      William Clowes and Sons for HMSO, February, London 1849 - Tall quarto, with a large folding plate; some gatherings browned, some leaves thumbed and a few chipped at the fore-edge; overall a good copy in understated modern polished half calf, front wrapper bound in at rear. The continuation of the previous report: this Parliamentary report on the state of convict management was printed shortly before the demise of transportation to New South Wales (1850) and Van Diemen's Land (1852). The report includes a remarkable large folding hand-coloured plate detailing a portable shelter for 'detached working parties' in Van Diemen's Land. This structure of wooden slats and canvas sheeting could be folded down and loaded to a horse-drawn cart, that is depicted. The report primarily consists of correspondence between the Governor's of the Australian Colonies and Earl Grey, the British Secretary of State. Given the relatively large number of convicts transported to Van Diemen's Land in the 1840s a good portion of the material comprises despatches from Lieutenant-Governor Sir William Denison. By the time of the publication of this report in 1849, transportation to Western Australia remained the only viable long-term option. Importantly, the proposal was welcomed by the business community, landowners and other agricultural interests who urgently required convict labour to alleviate poor economic conditions. Under the title 'Formation of a Penal Establishment' the report contains resolutions of a public meeting of about 200 persons 'who are all strong advocates, under existing circumstances, for making this a penal settlement.' The mood in the eastern states was markedly different. New South Wales was on the verge of abolition and public sentiment was strongly expressed. Although the despatches from Tasmania reflect the system in demise, the large number of remaining convicts ensured a continuation of institutions such as the Port Arthur penitentiary and existing practices such as the government road gangs. Although the vast majority of the report is devoted to the Australian colonies, despatches from New Zealand, Gibraltar and Bermuda are of incidental interest. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        View of the Nile Looking Towards the Pyramids of Dashour and Saccara

      Day & Son, [London 1849 - A fine example from the deluxe issue of David Roberts' monumental works on the Middle East: 'The Holy Land' and 'Egypt & Nubia', considered the greatest lithographically illustrated works issued in the 19th century. Roberts' masterpiece was issued in 41 parts over seven years in three states; tinted, tinted proof and in its finest form (as with the present image), coloured and mounted on card. It is beautifully lithographed by Louis Haghe, to whom Roberts paid tribute in glowing terms, `Haghe has not only surpassed himself, but all that has hitherto been done of a similar nature. He has rendered the views in a style clear, simple and unlaboured, with a masterly vigour and boldness which none but a painter like him could have transferred to stone'. Abbey regarded the work as `one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and.the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph'. David Roberts was born at Stockbridge near Edinburgh, and at the early age of 10 apprenticed to Gavin Buego, a house painter. He continued to work for Buego after his apprenticeship had been completed, carrying out work on imitation stone-work and paneling at Scone Palace and Abercairney Abbey. By 1818 Roberts had become assistant scene painter at the Pantheon theatre in Edinburgh, moving on to work in theatres in Glasgow and finally in late 1821 to Drury Lane theatre in London, where he worked with Clarkson Stanfield. Both artists exhibited at the Society of British Artists, Royal Academy and British Institution, and by 1830 Roberts was firmly established as a topographical artist and was able to give up his theatre work. In these early years he toured the continent and Scotland, and in 1832-33 visited Spain. In 1838 he made plans for his journey to the Near East, inspired by a love of artistic adventure; departing in August 1839 for Alexandria, he spent the remaining part of the year in Cairo, visiting the numerous tombs and sites. In February of the following year he set out to cross the desert for the Holy Land by way of Suez, Mount Sinai and Petra arriving in Gaza, and then on to Jerusalem, concluding his tour spending several months visiting the biblical sites of the Holy Land, and finally returning to England at the end of 1839. The drawings of his tour were submitted to F.G. Moon in 1840 who arranged to bring out a work illustrative of Scripture History, paying Roberts £ 3,000. for the copyright of the sketches, and for his labour in supervising Louis Haghe's lithography. Both the exhibition of his original watercolours and the subsequent published work were an immediate success and confirmed his reputation as an architectural and landscape artist of the highest order. Cf. Abbey Travel I, 272 & II, 385; cf. Blackmer 1432; cf. Gay 2216; cf. Ibrahim-Hilmy II,p.176; cf. Lipperheide Ma 27; cf. Röhrict 1984; cf. Tobler p. 229; cf. Tooley 402. Tinted lithograph by Louis Haghe, coloured by hand, mounted on card in imitation of a watercolour (as issued). Very good condition apart from several small black spots in the image and some light soiling in the margins and the image. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      New York: G.P. Putnam, 1849.. xvii,[1],119pp. with frontis and tinted wood- engraved title page. 7 full- page wood engraved plates and 6 tinted lithographed plates. Quarto. Original olive green cloth, stamped in gilt and blind. 99 wood engraved text illustrations. Shadow of offset from tinted title to printed title, a few stray marks to cloth, fore-tips a bit frayed, small nick to one joint, otherwise a very good, bright copy. First edition. An important American architecture book, which grew out of the controversies facing the Building Committee of the Smithsonian Institution, of which the polymathic Owen served as Chairman. It has for its special object "to enlighten the judgment and form the taste of those who are appointed to sit in judgment of the result of the architect's labors." In his general creative vision Owen reflects the influence of Pugin and Ruskin. The designs, shown in both highly finished wood-engravings and in elegant tinted lithography, show the building as a virtually complete entity. The three lithographic views of the Smithsonian were lithographed by Sarony & Major after Renwick. The other three lithographs were drawn by Renwick and printed by James Ackerman, and two of them, both of Grace Church, are singled out by Peters as important examples of his work. HITCHCOCK 885.
