        Shirley. A Tale. By Currer Bell, Author of 'Jane Eyre'. IN CONTEMPORARY BINDING

      Smith, Elder & Co., 18493 vols., 8vo., First Edition, uniform mid-nineteenth inscription above title on all three title-pages, fore-margins mildly age-soiled (rather more heavily so on first leaves of first volume; see below); attractively bound in contemporary half calf, marbled boards, back ruled with six flat bands, second compartments lettered in gilt, fourth compartments numbered in gilt, backstrip gilt faded (but all lettering and numbering wholly legible), neatly recased with new endpapers, sprinkled edges, a very good, tight copy. The work was issued without half-titles. This is likely to be an early issue since it is bound without the 16pp publisher's catalogue dated October 1849 sometimes found at end of first volume. With the first of two leaves of publisher's advertisements at end of third volume. The mid-nineteenth century presentation inscription above titles is blotted and obtrusive but nowhere affects printed lettering. This copy has the following minor imperfections: Vol. I: mild marginal age-soiling to title and following eight leaves, short closed tear on title neatly repaired on verso; Vol. III: wanting second leaf of publisher's advertisements at end. The first leaf (here present) contains the announcement of the third edition of Jane Eyre, the second leaf (here absent) contains press opinions of the same work. Overall a nice copy of the author's second novel (set during the Luddite riots) in partially restored period binding. SCARCE. Sadleir 348; Smith, p.112; Parrish, p. 93; Wise 6 (pp.22-29)

        MOTHER, THIS IS A SHORT NARRATIVE OF SOME OF THE OCCURRENCES DURING MY ABSENCE FROM YOU AND MY BELOVED RELATIVES [manuscript caption title]

      [N.p.] 1849.. 40pp. plus 6pp. letter. Written in a clear and highly legible hand. About 12,000 words. Folio. Contemporary marbled wrappers, stitched. Some light wear to wrappers, but internally clean and fresh. Very good. Autograph manuscript of William C. Parsons, a British sailor of the merchant marine. Parson's nautical career spanned some twenty-one years and included service on about thirty-five ships. His narrative begins on leaving England in 1822 and goes through 1843. His was a typical sailor's life of the period - suffering under despotic captains, press gangs, tempests and shipwreck. The author spares the reader no detail of his personal bravery and is at pains to leave an impression of his self-sufficiency and sense of fair play throughout some harrowing escapades, particularly on the Pacific coast of South America during the wars of independence. An educated man, Parsons' career advances until he rises to become mate on the ship, eventually settling in America and taking command of a trading vessel that plys the Eastern Seaboard. Much of the narrative takes place in the Americas, either on the west coast of South America or in United States ports. This autobiography is written to his mother and seems to have been a response to a box of gifts sent to him from England. In response, Parsons sent his own box of curiosities to be shared out among his family members (not present here), including tapa cloth, Indian beadwork, and articles made from wood from various famous ships, all of which are described in the separate letter. Of particular interest is Parsons' description of sitting for his daguerreotype portrait by Mr. Cohill, which he included in the box of treasures. "Below decks" narratives of ordinary sailors from this period are relatively rare.

This print is accompanied by the original scientific text about the animal written by Rev. John Bachman. The Quadrupeds of North America, which encompassed a total of 155 native American four-legged (thus quadruped) mammals individually documented and portrayed in their landscape and natural settings, was a collaborative effort between premier Nineteenth Century American wildlife painters: John James Audubon, his sons John Woodhouse and Victor Gifford Audubon and the naturalist Reverend John Bachman. To document and portray what John James Audubon considered a dwindling resource; the native mammals set among the splendor and majesty of the uninhabited American landscape, the team traveled westward from Audubon's home in Mill Grove, Pennsylvania up the Missouri River and through territory just previously explored by Lewis and Clark, from the Canadian border of the Northern Russian Territories, now Alaska, southward to Mexico. Arduous and monumental, the journey influenced the pathos of the compositions, however, the true legacy of the work rests on John James Audubon's prolific vision and mastery of his subject and medium. Heretofore unseen, The Quadrupeds of North American is a wildlife classic: an essential and timeless reflection of Nineteenth Century American Culture and contribution to American Wildlife Art. The American Review, a Whig journal, heralded the national origin of the Quadrupeds: "We have at last a Great National Work, originated and completed among us- authors, artists and artisans of which are our own citizens.. the Bible of Nature!" (John James Audubon in the West. New York: Henry H. Abrams, 2000)

With a Map and Plates from Original Designs

      New York: C.S. Francis & Co.; Boston: J.H. Francis, 1849. 12mo (signed in sixes). [18.9 cm.] vi, [6], 305 pages, plus three leaves of publisher's ads [numbered: 1, 2, 6, 7, 10, 14.] Complete with folding map and six lithograph plates after sketches by the author. Recent quarter calf over marbled boards with red leather spine label stamped in gold. Binding is fine. Embossed stamp of the Sondley Reference Library on title page, one other text leaf, and in four places on the map. Small number stamp on verso of title and in margin of one other leaf. Interior is otherwise good plus. Some light damping, affecting a portion of the map (horizontal band about nine centimeters wide) and the lower quarter of some text leaves (most prominent on first and last few leaves, becoming very faint for most of text block, and disappearing entirely on some of the inner leaves). No discernible impact from damping on plates, however some plates show slightest offsetting from text and two of them each have a small, light spot of foxing. Light creasing to lower corners of a few text leaves. FIRST EDITION. An important account of life in California during the conquest and occupation by the United States. Joseph Warren Revere (1812-1880), a native of Boston and the grandson of Paul Revere, was serving as a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy when he arrived in California in 1846. After the Bear Flag Revolt, he raised the U.S. flag over Sonoma and commanded the garrison there for a time. In addition to the military operations of the period, he here describes life on the ranchos, the Native American population, and the natural resources of California. He left California before the Gold Rush began in earnest, but discusses initial reports on the gold discoveries. The map depicts the "Harbour of San Francisco California." It was sketched by the author from Beechey's survey. The plates include a views of Monterey, Sutter's Fort, a quicksilver mine near Santa Clara, an Indian encampment, and Mount Diablo, and a scene of a ranchero capturing a bear. Cowan, p. 530. Streeter IV, 2592. Sabin 70182. Howes R222.
