Verfasser ist der bedeutende österr. Orientalist und Diplomat Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall, der 1774 in Graz als Joseph von Hammer geboren wurde. Nachdem er nach dem Tod seines Freundes Graf Wenzel Johann Purgstall und dessen Sohnes von der aus Schottland stammenden Gräfin Jane Anne von Purgstall adoptiert wurde, die ihn als Erben von Schloss Hainfeld in der Steiermark einschließlich der dortigen Fideikommissherrschaft einsetzte, wurde er 1835 unter dem Namen von Hammer-Purgstall in den Freiherrnstand erhoben. Die zahlreichen Dokumente über die Gallerin, die durch diese Erbschaft in seinen Besitz kamen, dienten ihm als Material für den vorliegenden Roman.

        Constitutionelles Blatt aus Böhmen. Verantwortlicher Redakteur: Franz Klutschak. 2. Jg., 1849, 1. Halbjahr (cplt.). Enthält die Nummern 1 vom 2.1.1849 bis Nr. 155 vom 30.6.1849 mit allen, teils zweimal täglich erschienenen, Beilagen.

      Prag: Haase Söhne 1849.. 497 unpag. Bl. Schmucklose Broschur der Zeit mit kl. handschriftlichen Märkchen auf dem Rücken (Einband fleckig, berieben und bestossen, Rücken mit Fehlstellen, durchgehend etwas fleckig, sehr vereinzelt Stempel auf dem Titelblatt, die letzten 11 Blatt mit Fehlstelle am rechten unteren Blattrand und geringem Textverlust, Buchblock an zwei Stellen angebrochen, teilweise eselsohrig, im Ganzen dennoch, zumal für eine Tageszeitung, recht ordentliches Exemplar). 2°. . broschiert/ Taschenbuch. Seltener, kompletter halber Jahrgang der im April 1848 gegründeten und nur bis Ende 1849, mehrfach täglich erschienenen Zeitung aus dem wohl interessantesten Zeitraum der deutschen Geschichte. Der Inhalt ist durchgehend politischen Inhalts, der zwar in erster Linie Österreich und Deutschland betrifft, aber auch die wichtigsten Ereignisse des Auslandes erfaßt: "Was das Feuilleton betrifft, so haben wir gleich im vorhinein angekündigt, daß wir es nur dann, wenn Mangel an politischen Stoffe eintritt, unserem Blatte anfügen wollen, und die in der letzen Zeit so mächtig herandrängenden Ereignisse hatten uns bis jetzt eben wenig Raum für andersweitige minder ernste Gegenstände übrig gelassen." [aus der erneuten Pränumerations-Einladung auf der Titelseite von Nr. 72 vom 25.März 1849. -Das hier fehlende Feuilleton hat Klutschak in der zeitgleich erschienenen und ebenfalls von ihm redigierten Bohemia veröffentlicht]. Entsprechend sind alle Ereignisse des Zeitraums erfaßt, Parlamentsreden werden in kleineren und größeren Auszügen, neue Gesetze, wie die je neuen Preßgesetze (allein drei im ersten Halbjahr 1849) abgedruckt. Berichtet wird von allen bedeutenden Vorfällen und Ereignissen der Zeit, vom Verbot des Kladderadatsch, Verfahren gegen Karl Marx, den Berufsverboten, der Kaiserwahl, den Kriegsereignissen etc. Erwähnung finden auch Bruno Bauer, Robert Blum, Struwe u.v.a.m. Natürlich wird auch vom Ende der Verfassungsbestrebungen wie der Bemühungen einer deutschen Einigung berichtet (z. Bsp. Nr. 105 vom 3. Mai 1849, Seite 3, Spalte 2). Vermerkt sind aber auch aus heutiger Sicht vielleicht nebensächlichere Ereignisse, wie die Auswanderung von 150 Familien nach Südaustralien, an deren Spitze der Bruder Schomburghs Berlin am Hamburger Bahnhof verlassen hat, die erhöhten Schikanen für Reisende in Polen, den Vorbereitungen zur Feier des 18. März, oder folgendes: "Der gestrige Tag war für Danzig ein Tag des Kampfes und der Unruhe. Die Demokraten, welche den 18. März durch ein socialistisches Bankett in dem drei Stunden entfernten Zoppot zu feiern beschlossen hatten wurden auf dem Weg dahin, erst auf einer dem Fort Hagelsberg gegenüberliegenden Brücke, dann am Olivaer Thore und im Park, von Reactionären, die mit Messern, Knüppeln und Zaunpfählen bewaffnet waren und meist den untersten Volksschichten angehörten, meuchlerisch überfallen. Dem ihnen zugesagten Schutze der Behörden wenig vertrauend, hatte ein Theil der Demokraten sich mit Hieb- und Schußwaffen versehen; doch nur die geringere Hälfte. Diese erwiderte den Anfall durch ein lebhaftes, wohlberechnetes Feuer, mußte aber bald der Uiberzahl weichen. Ihre Fahnen wurden zerissen und in den Koth getreten. Der Straßenkampf war blutig und erbittert; man zählte 13 meist schwer Verwundete und 4 Todte, letztere auf Seiten der Angreifer. Oeffentliches und Privateigenthum ward demoliert; die Polizei aber erschien erst, als fast Alles beendet war, auf dem Platze." [Beilage zu Nr. 71, ausgegeben am 24. März Nachmittags, S. 1, Sp. 2]. Die Zeitung hatte ein offenbar recht weit gespanntes Netz von Korrespondenten und ein - wie es bereits der Titel ausdrückt - demokratisches Selbstverständnis, dessen genauere Ausrichtung sich nur dem Leser erschließt. Nur wenige Bibliotheken besitzen ein Original, die anderen großen (west-) europäischen Bibliotheken weisen lediglich die Mikrofilm-Ausgabe nach.

        Lettre autographe signee ("Juliette").

      [Paris], 22 mai [1849].. 4 pages in-8.. A Victor Hugo. Charmante lettre ou elle se plaint avec humour d'embarras gastriques. Elle supporterait son petit malaise avec plus de courage s'il etait la pour la dorloter. "[...] Je m'en veux presque maintenant d'avoir sacrifie mon coeur a mon ventre une autre fois je ne ferai pas de ces stupides concessions-la et il s'en tirera comme il pourra et ces borborigmes aussi. Tiens qu'est-ce qu'ils me veulent donc ceux-la? Quand je vous dis qu'il n'y a plus de petits boyaux voici les miens qui veulent faire autant de bruit que les votres, les ambitieux.

        The Rhododendrons of Sikkim-Himalaya; being an account, botanical and geographical, of the Rhododendrons recently discovered in the mountains of Eastern Himalaya, from drawings and descriptions made on the spot, during a government botanical mission to that country ... Edited by Sir W.J. Hooker.

      1849. London, Reeve, Benham, and Reeve, 1849 (-1851). 3 parts (bound in one). Folio (495 x 370mm). With a handcoloured vignette, showing the Himalayan mountains, on title and 30 handcoloured lithographed plates and descriptive text. Later full green morocco, richly gilt ornamented spine with 2 red labels, frontcover with gilt lettered title within a gilt border. One of the most attractive botanical books of the nineteenth century. "An important work, both for the botanist and horticulturist since it contains descriptions and plates of many of the best garden Rhododendron species which can be grown in this country and an account of their discovery" (Great Flower Books). The text was edited by Sir William Hooker (1785-1865) from his son's field notes sent back from India. "The drawings, based on Hooker's dried specimens and field sketches, were by Kew's official botanical artist, Walter Hood Fitch. Fitch's vigorous, confident lines and bold colouring miraculously recreated exotic bloom - 29 had been delineated by the time the last plate appeared in 1851 - which excited the botanist and were to provide the gardener with some of our best garden species" (Desmond, The European discovery of the Indian flora p. 144). Joseph Dalton Hooker obtained through Lord Carlisle a grant to explore the central and eastern Himalayas. Second issue of part 1 only, no difference with the first edition except for the indication 'second edition'. This second isssue of the first part was printed in the same year as the first issue. Great Flower Books p. 60; Nissen BBI, 911..

        [Engraved title:] The progress of crime, Or The authentic memoirs Of Maria Manning

      By Robert Huish Esqr. Author of “Memoirs of the Princess Charlotte,” “George the Fourth,” _ [sic] “Maria Martin [sic]” &c. &c. London, no publisher, 1849. [At foot of last page of text:] Printed by M‘Gowan & Co., Great Windmill Street. Demy 8vo in half sheets; wood-engraved frontispiece, vignette title-page, and twenty-four plates; letterpress title not called for; Directions to the Binder on verso of last leaf; pp.831 (excluding engraved title-leaf)+[i]; contemporary watered calf, tooled gilt on sides, spine with four flat bands, ruled and tooled gilt, dark brown lettering-piece; edges burnished brown; end-papers faced drab. Neatly re-jointed; binder’s blank foxed at front and back; two or three sets of gatherings with light embrowning and in one case foxing [v. note]; otherwise a very nice copy. Issued without letterpress prelims., apparently in twenty-six 32pp. numbers, each with a plate (though they are not distributed as regularly as that might seem to imply). Some half-dozen sets of four four leaf gatherings passim are on different paper from the rest of the volume, with some more or less slight tendency to embrown, and in one case also to fox, this distribution tending to support the assumption that the book was issued originally in 32pp. numbers. The first printing throughout, from type, the text measuring 83mm to 84.5mm in width as against the 84.5mm to 86mm of later printings made from stereo plates. P.257 is incorrectly signed ‘2K’, this being corrected in the stereos, and pp.281 and 289 are here both signed ‘2N’, this bringing the gatherings back into order. The frontispiece here has only a two line caption, as against the five line caption present in later copies, whilst above the printer’s imprint at the end of the text are the words “End of volume the third”, this not being present in the reprints. No volume breaks are otherwise indicated in the text, and it is perhaps to be assumed that volume numbers may have been included on the wrappers. A fictionalisation of the events surrounding the real-life murder of Patrick O’Connor in 1849 in the course of which he was twice robbed of small sums - in a low drinking house and in a house of ill-fame - before finally falling victim to a well-planned robbery and murder by the Mannings: the book concludes with an appendix containing an editorial article and description by Charles Dickens of the execution of Mary Manning and her husband at Horsemonger-lane, reprinted from the Times newspaper of Nov.14th 1849, and here first printed in book form. Mary Manning, neé de Roux, who was Swiss by origin, was the last woman to be executed publicly in England - Dickens’ letter of protest having some effect in stiffening a government resolve to put an end to the custom. Not in Sadleir or Wolff; Block, p.116; Summers, ‘Gothic Bibliography’, p.73 All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        MARDI: and a Voyage Thither

      New York:: Harper & Bros.,, 1849.. New York:: Harper & Bros.,. 1849. First American edition. Two volumes. Preceded by the rare three-volume English edition. His third book and the first pure fiction work (while they featured fictional narrators, his previous novels were heavily autobiographical). It details the travels of an American sailor who abandons his whaling vessel to explore the South Pacific. MARDI is highly philosophical, unlike his first two novels, and si said to be the first work to show Melville's true potential. While not as cohesive or lengthy as MOBY-DICK, it shares a similar writing style as well as many of the same themes. In his preface to MARDI, Melville wrote somewhat ironically that his first two books were nonfiction but disbelieved--following a similar pattern, he hoped the fiction herein would be accepted as fact (Wikipedia). Two volumes in embossed, dark-brown T-cloth with a blind-stamped rule about 1/8th inch from edges (priority unknown) [BAL 13658]. Yellow coated endpapers very nice and bright; very minor professional restoration at spine ends, otherwise a fine bright set with occasional minor foxing to volume 2. Housed in custom, cloth slipcase with gilt lettered spine.

        Address to the Inhabitants of New Mexico and California, on the Omission by Congress to Provide Them with Territorial Governments, and on the Social and Political Evils of Slavery

      New York: The Am. & For. Anti-Slavery Society, 1849. New York: The Am. & For. Anti-Slavery Society. Near Fine. 1849. First Edition. A handsome First Edition in Near Fine condition. Disbound; A rare anti-slavery piece. The author argues that the reigning slave-holders in the United States Senate have deprived inhabitants of New Mexico and California of self-government. They have been "as totally excluded from all participation in the choice of rulers and the enactment of laws, as the Negro slaves of South Carolina." Why? Because "the Slave power has resolved that you shall have no government but such as shall establish the dominion of the WHIP. " The terrible influence of slavery on enterprise, education, settlement, commerce, religion, morals, and culture is demonstrated. Howes, who accorded this the 'b' rating for rarity, opined that Peter H. Burnett was the author. Eberstadt and Cowan concur. Burnett, a vigorous advocate of California statehood and abolitionist, helped to frame the state constitution and became its first governor in 1849. "This work is rarely met with." Eberstadt. Howes B999 b. 133 Eberstadt 165. Cowan 85 .

FIRST EDITION. SIGNED BY NOTED AMERICAN PHYSICIAN, RICHARD DENNIS ARNOLD, at the head of the title page. Arnold (1808-1876), a native of Savannah, was one of the leading medical men from Georgia. A charter member of the American Medical Association (1846), he served as its vice-president and secretary. He was a founder of the Medical Society of the State of Georgia (1849) and its president in 1851. He helped establish the Savannah Medical College and was a longtime member of the faculty. Arnold was also a politician, who served as the mayor of Savannah for several terms and as a member of both houses of the state legislature. As mayor, he surrendered Savannah to Sherman in December, 1864. In addition, he was one of the three founders of the Georgia Historical Society (1839). An interesting provenance for one of the landmark books in the history of modern medicine. "This American volume marks the first book-form publication of Simpson's essays and speeches, and thus represents his first full-dress exposition of the use of anaesthesia in childbirth and major surgery. The collection was never published in book form in England. . . " --Norman 1946.

Howes W414. Sabin 103994. Streeter 3324. HBS 64930.Third Edition and first generally obtainable edition, preceded by the extremely rare official quarto edition of 100 copies (of which sixty-three were given to foreign nations and twenty-five destroyed by fire), and the unofficial edition of the same size limited to 150 copies. The present edition is limited to 1,000 copies, which also includes the atlas which was omitted from later editions."Charles Wilkes joined the U.S. Navy in 1818; twenty years later he was appointed to command this first navel exploring expedition to the South Seas. The aims of the expedition were to survey unfamiliar ocean regions and make scientific discoveries. Assigned to this duty were the sloops of war Vincennes and Peacock, the brig Porpoise, the ship Relief, and the tenders Sea Gull and Flying Fish. Aboard these vessels were naturalists, botanists, artists, and others with specialized training in scientific exploration, in addition to officers and sailors. The chief fields of exploration in this expedition were the coast of the Antarctic continent, the islands of the Pacific Ocean, and the American northwest coast. In total, some 280 islands in the Pacific and adjacent waters and 800 miles of streams and coasts in the Oregon country were surveyed, and 1,600 miles of the coast of Antarctica were charted...Wilkes continued his navel career, after some controversy about his claim to have been the first to sight the continent of Antarctica and his severe punishment of some crewmen who had broken into the liquor stores. His disagreeable nature caused him to quarrel with many expedition members, casting a shadow over his leadership. Many years later he fought prominently on the Union side in the Civil War, and in 1861, in command of the San Jacinto, Wilkes initiated the famed Mason and Slidell affair by seizing those Confederate commissioners from a British mail steamer near the Bahamas." (Hill, 1866). Wilkes's Narrative "would also have an impact on some of America's most important and influential writers. James Fenimore Cooper, an old family friend of the Wilkes's, would integrate information from the Narrative into at least two of his sea novels. Herman Melville would purchase his own copy of Wilkes's book, and scholars have found traces of the U.S. Exploring Expedition throughout his masterpiece Moby-Dick. Melville appears to have been most taken with the book's illustrations. For example, his description of Ishmael's Polynesian companion Queequeg has been attributed to an engraving of a tattooed Maori chief in volume two. In an age before the widespread use of photography, the pages of the Narrative provided a visual link with the exotic world of the South Pacific (as well as Antarctica and the Pacific Northwest) that no other American book could match" (Nathaniel Philbrick, The Scientific Legacy of the U.S. Exploring Expedition, part of The United States Exploring Exhibition, 1830-1842, an online exhibition by Smithsonian Institution Libraries (Washington, D.C.: 2004)).

        Narrative of the Loss of the Mary Rose, at Spithead, July 20, 1545

      Portsea: Printed and Published by S. Horsey, Sen., 1849. From Original Manuscripts, &c. in the British Museum. Bound in Wood of the Wreck. Duodecimo (90 × 51 mm) Original black sheep-backed wooden boards, title gilt to the spine, all edges gilt, pale blue endpapers. Old paper label to the upper board "1545 Wreck of the Mary Rose, 10/-". Overall an excellent copy. First published 1842, title page states "Second Edition", but this in fact the third, a second having been published in 1844. Uncommon, OCLC locates just six copies of all editions, all of them in the UK, only one being of the present edition. There is, however, also a copy of the 1849 in the Royal Collection, which was exhibited as part of the Henry VIII quincentenary exhibition; "Henry VIII embarked upon a programme of ship building on his accession, including the Mary Rose which was built between 1509 and 1511. As the English flagship, she took part in many of the naval conflicts of Henry's reign. Her last engagement was in the Solent against a French invasion fleet in July 1545. With Henry watching from Southsea Castle on the mainland, the Mary Rose sank with the loss of around 500 men. The wreck of the Mary Rose lay undiscovered for nearly 300 years until its accidental discovery by fishermen in 1836, leading to diver John Deane recovering timbers and other relics over the next few years. A history of the ship's demise was published by Samuel Horsey; copies of his book were bound using samples of wood recovered during Deane's expeditions" (exhibition catalogue). This copy is exceptionally well preserved.

The ever-versatile Owen, who introduced the legislation creating the Smithsonian, was also chairman of the Building Committee, and his book has for its goal the enlightenment of the general public as well as "to enlighten the judgment and form the taste of those who are appointed to sit in judgment on the result of his [the architect's] labors." As such, it is one of the most important American books of its time, and shows the influence of Pugin and Ruskin. It also features striking architectural plates, including superb views of Grace Church in New York as well as various views of the Smithsonian buildings

      Numerous colored woodcut illus. in the text. 5, 35 folded leaves. 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. Edo: 1849. Second edition, enlarged and corrected, of this atlas of anatomical dissection, based on the dissection of a 23 year-old male body performed at the west execution ground in Kyoto in 1821. The "existence of the lymphatic system seems to have aroused special interest among Japanese physicians."-Ogawa, "The Beginnings of Anatomy in Japan" (1975), p. 68. In the present work, the thoracic duct was first fully observed and described. The surgeon responsible for making this observation was Gishin Komori, the 19 year-old son of Tou Komori, the superintendent in charge of this dissection. Dissections in Japan took place under less than ideal situations, at execution grounds and within one day. Teams were assembled to study individual parts of the body with each team preparing a report of their observations. This present work is particularly well-illustrated with numerous colored and highly detailed woodcuts of organs and systems of the body. Ikeda (1785-1836), was an early user of the microscope in Japan which he employed in preparing this book. The first edition, published in 1822 or 1823, is a well-known rarity amongst specialists. Fine copy. First six folded leaves with some inoffensive staining.

Sabin 92664. Field 1514. Pilling 3764. Howes S1053. From British Library, Sloane MS 1622. "The author, of whom almost nothing is certainly known, was evidently a person of some importance in Virginia during the period of which he writes, --- from 1610 to 1612. Book I., pp. 23 to 133, is almost wholly occupied with a description of the Indians of Virginia, their customs and peculiarities. It was written probably some years before Captain John Smith?s General History of Virginia, and is more especially remarkable as having afforded Mr. Deane and Mr. Niel the data to charge the name of Pocahontas with infamy. The following passage will scarcely be considered sufficient evidence to convict the Indian maiden: ?Their younger women goe not shadowed amongst their owne companie, until they be nigh eleaven, or tuelve returnes of the leafe old, nor are they very much ashamed thereof, and therefore would the before remembered Pochahontas, a well featured, but wanton yong girle, Powhatuns daughter, sometymes resorting to our port, of the age then of eleven or twelve yeares, get the boys forth with her into the markett place, and make them wheele falling on their hands turning up their heeles upwards, whome she would followe and wheele so her self, naked as she was, all the fort over, but being once twelve yeares, they put on a kind of seme-cinctum lethern apron before their bellies, and are very shamefact to be scene bare.? On the modern interpretation of the word wanton, rests almost all the weight of the arguments against Pochahontas? chastity. A word used two centuries ago, like ?wench, ? ?quean, ? and many other terms, since degraded by use to reproach, is here in the sense of saucy, hoydenish, reckless, and other kindred terms indicating boldness and want of propriety. Like other native girls she was incapable of viewing her nudity with shame, because her youth forbid the association of sexual indulgence, or even desire, with it, " (Field, Indian Bibliography, p. 383). Spine a bit sunned, wear to head of spine, small institutional bookplate to front pastedown; endpapers at hinges ragged and re-glued, else a very good unopened (uncut) copy. Map about fine.

The following year he removed to Elysburg, at which point he was the first physician to locate permanently, and he was in active practice there for forty-two years, his field covering all the eastern part of Northumberland County and the adjoining portions of Montour, Columbia and Schuylkill counties. He was of the old 'saddle-bag' doctors, and in spite of the hardships of a physician's life in his day survived all his fellow practitioners who were in practice at the time his career began, living to the advanced age of eighty-seven years. He retired from active professional labors about 1870" (Floyd's Northumberland County Genealogy).
