        Clement Lorimer; Or, The Book with the Iron Clasps / A Romance (SIGNED)

      David Bogue, London 1849 - First edition in book form, having earlier appeared in six monthly parts. Frontispiece and 11 plates by George Cruikshank, all firmly in place. In original stamped cloth with gilt devices still visible to front and spine, with original canary endpapers. (Several early booksellers' catalog entries for this title have been tipped to blank recto of the frontispiece, though they describe "uncut" copies, which this is not.) Minor chips to head and heel of spine. Some of the mull showing at the front internal hinge. Glued to the yellow FFE is a slip of paper reading "With the compliments of / Angus B. Reach," and apparently dated 1849. (It can't be 1869; Reach, born 1821, died following a cerebral hemorrhage in 1856.) We are not usually enamored of these "glued-in autographs," where someone has clipped the author's name from a canceled bank check, or whatever. At least, in this case, "with the compliments of" would tend to indicate the signature is clipped from the conveyance letter of an actual presentation copy. A tale of poisons, murders, a rigged Derby, and a vendetta stretching across the centuries, centered on a cursed book and thus sometimes referred to as England's first bibliomystery (though in fact no bookish lore is required to solve the case.) Author Reach's experience as a court reporter and subsequently investigative reporter for the Morning Chronicle is evident in his characters of Spiffler, Trotter, Sharpe and O'Keene, all investigative reporters for "The Flail." The first full length detective novel in England -- Otto Penzler calls it "the first bibliomystery and a rare book." Uncommon in the original cloth, especially with author signature. 280 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Original blue-green diaper-grain cloth, titles gilt to spines, decoration stamped in blind to spines, blind-panelled covers, yellow coated endpapers, edges untrimmed. Bound with the half-title to vol. I. Engraved title pages, frontispiece to vol. II, 45 engraved plates, chapter initials, and illustrations in the text. Ownership inscription to front pastedown of vol. I, front free endpaper of vol. II. Spines gently rolled and faded, light soiling to covers, slight wear to extremities, especially spine ends, top edges dust toned, front inner hinge cracked but holding to vol. II, foxing to prelims and endmatter, light offsetting from plates; a very good set. First edition of Thackeray's second major work, published serially in 23 parts between 1848 and 1850. The work was interrupted for three months at the end of 1849 because of Thackeray's "nearly fatal illness (most probably cholera or typhoid)" (ODNB). Arthur Pendennis was used as the narrator of many of Thackeray's subsequent books, and is "an admitted alter ego who undergoes subtle analysis and complex criticism".

        A Week On The Concord And Merrimack Rivers

      Boston and Cambridge: James Munroe And Company, 1849. First Edition. First and only Printing Very good- in its original, light brown, wavy cloth covered boards blind stamped with a five-rule border on both boards. This copy has been professionally rebacked preserving the majority of theoriginal spine strip and retaining the original end sheets. A small octavo of 7 13/16 by 4 3/4 inches with the cloth worn through at the fore edges of the boards and in sections along the upper and lower edges of the boards. The front hinge is starting and there are occasional marginal pencil marks in the text. Heavy erasures of the front and rear most end sheets have also caused two small holes in those pages. There is a minor tanning to the interior of the facing pages 112 and 113 perhaps from two small leaves having been pressed within the book. Lastly, the page announcing the imminent publication of Walden is missing a 1 1/2 inch chip from its upper fore corner. That chip has no impact on the printed text on that page. 413 pages of text followed by a one page announcement stating Walden "will soon be published". It is important to note that due to a printer's error the last three lines of page 396 are missing. Those lines have been written out in pencil perhaps by the author or the author's sister as indicated in both BAL and Borst. The printer's errors on page 120 and 139 have not been either noted or corrected. This was Thoreau's first book, which he had to pay for to get published. Unfortunately, it did not sell well. From bibliographic sources, we infer that this copy is most likely one of the 256 bound, unsold copies returned to Thoreau in October 1853 by the publisher. In 1862 Ticknor and Fields purchased 145 bound copies and the 450 unbound sheets from Thoreau. During the intervening years Thoreau either gave away or sold 111 of the bound copies. In that time Thoreau discovered the missing lines on page 396. In some of those bound copies either Thoreau or his sister, Sophia Thoreau, and an unknown third individual added the missing lines on the lower portion of that page in pencil. Expert opinion indicates that this handwriting is not that of either Thoreau or his sister.(BAL 20104; Borst A1.1.a1; Howes T-220)

        A souk in Cairo.Cairo, 1902. Signed and inscribed "C. Wuttke. Cairo. 1902". Oil on canvas board (20 x 28 cm). Unframed.

      Ludwig, Münchner Maler im 19. Jahrhundert IV, pp. 405-406; cf. Starr, Remembering cosmopolitan Egypt. Painting of a souk in Cairo, by the German orientalist Carl Wuttke (1849-1927). Paintings such as these were made to be reproduced as picture postcards, an archetypal consumer product from the early 20th century. Postcards, as a convenient alternative to the letter, had first appeared in the 1870s. The simultaneous improvements in photographic and printing techniques, led to the introduction of full-colour postcards in the 1890s. Although photographs were used as a basis for the creation of half-tone blocks, which were then used to print the postcards, well-made paintings such as these by Wuttke, were just as popular. For the numerous visitors to Egypt, picture postcards were a way of "collecting" the visited sights, thereby documenting their travels.Carl Wuttke was one of the most well-travelled artists of his time, visiting Italy, North-Africa, the United states, China and Japan. During his travels, he produced various pictures of sights in Egypt and China for the Dresden firm of Römmler & Jonas, which were subsequently reproduced as picture postcards. Wuttke's quick style, reminiscent of contemporary impressionism, but also of traditional oil sketches, was well suited to that end, giving an even better suggestion of a "snapshot" than contemporary photography.Relined at the back and numbered (on the relining) "94". Varnish yellowed; craquelure in the blue and white sky parts; otherwise in very good condition.

        Freiheit in Krähwinkel. Posse mit Gesang in zwei Abtheilungen und 3 Akten. 1. Abtheilung: Die Revolution. 2. Abtheilung: Die Reaktion. Mit drei allegorischen illuminirten Bildern.

      Wien, Wallishauser 1849. - Borst 2356, Brieger 1836, Rabenlechner I, 60, WG 11. Erste Ausgabe. Krähwinkeliade mit Bezug auf die Revolutionswirren jener Zeit. Die am 1. Juli 1848 am Wr. Carl-Theater uraufgeführte Volkskomödie ist das einzige Stück, das Nestroy nicht unter dem Druck der Zensur geschrieben hat, da es in dem kurzen Zensurfreien Zeitraum (14. März-11. Nov. 1848) verfasst und aufgeführt wurde. Unter großem Jubel wurde das Werk bis zum Ende der Saison 36-mal gespielt. Das Stück verherrlicht die Ideen und Erfolge der Revolution und zeichnet gleichzeitig ein satirisches Bild der kleinsinnigen Nutznießer und engstirnigen Opfer der Revolution. "Am 31. Oktober besetzte die Armee des Fürsten Windischgrätz die Stadt und mit der Herrlichkeit der `Freiheit in Krähwinkel` war es zu Ende, in den Straßen und auf der Bühne. Es war nur eine Posse gewesen. - Sie hat großen Wert als von Gedanken durchleuchtetes und über sich selbst hinaus deutendes Zeitdokument . " (Franz H. Mautner, Nestroy, 1978, Ss.298-302). - Die Illustrationen in zeitgenössischem Kolorit zeigen drei Szenenbilder nach Aquarellen von Johann Christian Schoeller (1782-1851) mit Johann Nestroy als Eberhard Ultra.

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

      [London: Day & Son, 1849. 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. 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.

        The Babes in the Wood.

      Joseph Cundall, London., 1849. First edition. Folio. 10 steel engraved plates, with paper guards, by John Brandard (after the Marchioness of Waterford), this being the very rare Large Paper hand-coloured issue. Original red paper boards lettered in gilt and rebacked with red cloth.Joseph Cundall wrote under the pseudonym of "Stephen Percy", was a pioneer photographer, and a publisher of children's books for which he commissioned some of the best artists of the day. The present title was the most ambitious of Cundall's books, printed in the year he went bankrupt. The sheets were properly hand-coloured as opposed to stencilled. Cover edges stained and quite rubbed at the edges but the text, bar a little marginal marking and creasing, is very good. A superb example of a Victorian gift book.

        The Book of Doctrine & Covenants, of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; selected from the Revelations of God. By Joseph Smith President. [The Book of Mormon]

      Orson Pratt. Printed by R James., Liverpool 1849 - Rare copy. With index and dated revelations in front of volume. In original binding and in very good condition: Blind stamped buckram, sixteen mo., 16x10.5cm, errata slip bound in. William Huskins' copy with his name in contemporary ink to paste-down. Light unobtrusive cracking of inner joints, very small chip to head of lower board, faint mark to upper board, two small brown spots to endpaper. 5,000 printed. ; After an unsuccessful attempt to publish in 1833, the first edition appeared in 1835 and later editions incorporated additional revelations and reference aids. In February 1841 in Liverpool, some 4000 reprints of the 1837 Kirtland edition were printed and it was from the plates of the 'European' edition that subsequent Latter-Day Saint editions would descend. This 1849 'Second European Edition' published by Apostle Orson Pratt and printed by R James moved the index to the front of the volume (in the present volume the index is headed 'Index' and not 'Contents' as noted by the Maxwell Inst. and includes the chronology of revelations) along with other format changes which were retained for many later editions. Five thousand copies were printed and George Q Cannon used it for his translation for the Hawaii edition. The Nauvoo edition had been printed in 1844. This copy was probably published around November 1849. Citing from the Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star Vol. II, No 10 May 15th, 1849: 'The Book of Doctrine and Covenants are all gone, but soon will be reprinted'. From the same journal and volume, No. 22 November 15th 1849 'The Doctrine and Covenants' are now ready. An additional index has been formed in the order of the date in which the several revelations were given." ; xxiii[i]+336pp pages [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Hypocrisie. Heuchelei.

      - Radierung und Kaltnadel, auf cremefarbenem Japan, unten mittig eigenhändig rot monogrammiert. 17:13 cm, vollrandig. Literatur: Mascha 704; Ramiro 179. Sehr guter Abdruck! Ein Frauentorso von rückwärts gesehen, den rechten Arm in die Hüfte gestemmt. Am unteren Teile des Rückens ist eine schwarze Maske befestigt. Rops war einer der bedeutendsten Graphiker und Illustratoren seiner Zeit. Nach einer Erziehung durch Privatlehrer ging der Sohn eines Textilfabrikanten an das Jesuitenkolleg in Namur. 1849 wurde er vom Kolleg verwiesen, in diesem Jahr verstarb sein Vater, ging dann an das Königliche Athenäum in Namur, schrieb sich jedoch auch gegen den Willen seines später verhaßten Vormunds an der dortigen Académie des Beaux-Arts ein, wo er Aktkurse besuchte. 1853 setzte er sein Studium an der Universität in Brüssel fort, wo er zudem das freie Atelier Saint-Luc besuchte. Ab 1856 gründete er zusammen mit seinem Freund Ch. de Coster (1827-1879) die Zeitschrift L'Uylenspiegel, journal des débats littéraires et artistiques, für die er bis 1857 Illustrationen schuf, meist Karikaturen. Nach der Verheiratung mit Charlotte Polet de Faveaux, der Tochter des Gerichtspräsidenten von Namur, lebte er abwechselnd in seiner Geburtsstadt und im Sommer auf Schloß Thozée bei Mettet, wo ihn auch zahlreiche Künstlerfreunde besuchten; später kamen noch Paris und Brüssel als ständig wechselnde Aufenthaltsorte hinzu. 1868 war er Mitbegründer der „Société des Beaux Arts". 1869 verliebte er sich in die Schwestern Léontine und Aurélie Duluc, zwei junge Modeschöpferinnen, mit denen er ab 1874 in Paris zusammenlebte und auch Kinder hatte. Reisen unternahm er in den nächsten Jahren an die Nordsee, nach Skandinavien, Ungarn und Spanien, in die Vereinigten Staaten und nach Nordafrika. 1888 wurde ihm der Orden der französischen Ehrenlegion verliehen. Rops hatte vor allem großen Erfolg als Illustrator, zuerst mit den Werken de Costers, dann arbeitete er auch für Baudelaire, mit dem er sich befreundete, sowie für J. Barbey d Aurevilly, St. Mallarmé, P. Verlaine, J. Péladan u.a.

        A souk in Cairo.Cairo, 1902. Signed and inscribed "C. Wuttke. Cairo. 1902". Oil on canvas board (20 x 28 cm). Unframed.

      - Ludwig, Münchner Maler im 19. Jahrhundert IV, pp. 405-406; cf. Starr, Remembering cosmopolitan Egypt. Painting of a souk in Cairo, by the German orientalist Carl Wuttke (1849-1927). Paintings such as these were made to be reproduced as picture postcards, an archetypal consumer product from the early 20th century. Postcards, as a convenient alternative to the letter, had first appeared in the 1870s.

Although photographs were used as a basis for the creation of half-tone blocks, which were then used to print the postcards, well-made paintings such as these by Wuttke, were just as popular. For the numerous visitors to Egypt, picture postcards were a way of "collecting" the visited sights, thereby documenting their travels.Carl Wuttke was one of the most well-travelled artists of his time, visiting Italy, North-Africa, the United states, China and Japan. During his travels, he produced various pictures of sights in Egypt and China for the Dresden firm of Römmler & Jonas, which were subsequently reproduced as picture postcards. Wuttke's quick style, reminiscent of contemporary impressionism, but also of traditional oil sketches, was well suited to that end, giving an even better suggestion of a "snapshot" than contemporary photography.Relined at the back and numbered (on the relining) "94". Varnish yellowed; craquelure in the blue and white sky parts; otherwise in very good condition.

        On cancerous and cancroid growth.

      Eidinburgh: Sutherland and Knox, 1849, 8, XII, 260 pp., "with 190 illustrations copied from nature and drawn on wood by the author", orig. Leinenband mit Stempeln der "Library Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland" auf Titel und Seiten. First Edition!"In Bennett's most important work, "On Cancerous and Cancroid Growths", 1849, microscopic findings are presented for the first time in a tumor work in the English-speaking world. Bennett defines the role of the microscope." G. DhomDer herausragende Vertreter der Edinburgher Schule, der die Einführung des Mikroskops in die Medizin Großbritanniens wesentlich gefordert hat, ist aber John Hughes Bennett (1812-1875). Bennett hat vor seinem Studium eine Lehre bei dem Chirurgen Segdwick durchlaufen. 1833 beginnt er in Edinburgh, Medizin zu studieren und promoviert dort 1837. Zwei Jahre verbringt er in Paris und auf deutschen Universitäten. In dieser Zeit publiziert er zahlreiche Artikel, unter anderem im 'Bulletin de la Society Anatomique de Paris', hauptsächlich über Affektionen des Gehirns, des Rückenmarks und der Nerven. Im Jahr seiner Rückkehr nach Edinburgh, 1841, erscheint seine Schrift "On the employment of the microscope in medical studies'. In der Einführung sagt Bennett, dass die große Bedeutung mikroskopischer Untersuchungen für die Anatomie, Physiologie und Pathologie beginnt, allgemein verstanden zu werden. Er weist auf A. Donné in Paris hin, dessen Kurs er besucht hat und auf die großen Entdeckungen auf dem Gebiete der Histologie, die in Deutschland gemacht worden seien:"There the microscope is so highly appreciated, that numerous private courses of lectures are given on histology, in which the use and management of the instrument are taught - though that not only is a knowledge of the anatomy of texture very general in Germany, even among students, and that to an extent which would surprise an Englishman but a good acquaintance with this demanded by examining boards, from all those who present themselves for medical diplomas."Bennett hält es deshalb für notwendig, diese Fortschritte auch seiner berühmten Edinburgh Universität nahe zu bringen, damit deren Schuler nicht gezwungen seien, sich im Ausland damit vertraut zu machen. Er weist auf die Zellenlehre von Schleiden und Schwann hin. Auf dem Gebiete der Pathologie sei der Gebrauch des Mikroskops absolut notwendig. Dabei stelle sich schließlich auch die Frage, ob die Kenntnis mikroskopischer Strukturen uns auch befähige, Krankheiten zu heilen? Seine Hörer würden vielleicht diese Frage stellen, ob dies auch von Nutzen für ihre Patienten sei und ob sich damit ihre Praxis vermehre? Bennett meint dazu, niemand könne Fortschritte in der Behandlung einer Krankheit erzielen, ohne sich eine Idee von ihrer Natur zu machen. Nach Bennetts Auffassung sollte ein Mikroskop in der Hand jedes Praktikers sein. Er empfiehlt dazu ein tragbares Modell, das auch an das Bett des Kranken mitgenommen werden könne, wie es bereits Donné entwickelt hatte.1845 erscheint Bennetts Bericht über einen Fall von Leukämie. Es ist jene Beobachtung, über die Rudolf Virchow dann den bekannten Prioritätsstreit führt.In Bennetts wichtigstem Werk, 'On Cancerous and cancroid growths' 1849, werden erstmals im englischsprachigen Raum mikroskopische Befunde in einem Geschwulstwerk vorgelegt. Bennett definiert die Rolle des Mikroskops:"The only physical proof we can arrive at of the existence of cancer, is by means of the microscope not that this instrument in itself capable even in the most expert hands of doing anything, but conjoint with the knowledge of the symptoms, progress of the case, form and appearance of the morbid growth, it offers us an additional and most valuable means of prosecuting our enquiries".Bennett widerspricht damit energisch Johannes Müller, der dem Mikroskop bekanntlich in der Geschwulstdiagnostik keine praktische Bedeutung beimisst. Ja, er setzt sich sogar bereits für die intraoperative Schnellschnittdiagnose ein, um zum Beispiel zu prüfen, ob bei der Exzision eines Tumors die Schnittränder tumorfrei waren: Ein erfahrener Histologe, so Bennett, könne eine solche Untersuchung in 30 Sekunden machen! Bennetts Geschwulstwerk beruht auf der Beobachtung und Schilderung von 56 Fällen. Bei 29 handelt es sich um die Untersuchung von Operationspräparaten. Dem damaligen Stand der Technik entsprechend, werden ungefärbte zytologische Präparate von Exsudaten und Abstriche von frischen Schnittflachen von Tumoren untersucht, aber auch Schnitte mit dem Valentin-Doppelmesser hergestellt. In seinen Auffassungen folgt Bennett ausdrücklich und konsequent Lebert. Dabei wird der Begriff "cancroid" für alle irgendwie geweblich differenzierten Geschwülste verwendet, für Mammatumoren und Speicheldrüsengeschwulste ebenso wie für chondromatose Geschwülste oder für ein Meningeom. Der Begriff "cancer" bleibt den ganz undifferenzierten, rein zelligen Tumoren vorbehalten, zum Beispiel einem Hodenkrebs, der vermutlich ein Seminom ist. Aus den Abbildungen Bennetts geht deutlich die Sorgfalt seiner Untersuchungen hervor. So bemerkt er bei seiner ersten Beobachtung, einem skirrhosen Brustkrebs, bei einer 37-jahrigen Schneiderin, dass er das Praparat 3 Tage lang untersucht und zahlreiche Zeichnungen gemacht habe.Natürlich ist auch Bennett zugleich Kliniker und Pathologe. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Edinburgh vom Kontinent führt er mikroskopische Kurse und den poliklinischen Unterricht ein. Als Pathologe ist er am Royal Infirmary tatig. Zugleich steht er einem "Institut für Medizin" vor, einer spezifisch schottischen Einrichtung aus dem 18. Jahrhundert, die aus Leyden übernommen wurde. Das Institut wird im 19. Jahrhundert zum Lehrstuhl für Physiologie, den Bennett ab 1848 einnimmt. Ab 1852 ist er auch Herausgeber des 'Edinburgh Monthly Journal of Medical Sciences', ab 1855 'Edinburgh Medical Sciences'. Bennett ist selbst ein aüßerst fruchtbarer Publizist. Seine 'Clinical lectures on the principles and practice of medicine' werden zu einem weit verbreiteten und in mehrere Sprachen übersetzten Lehrbuch, das 5 Auflagen in Großbritannien und 6 in den Vereinigten Staaten erlebt." Georg Dhom, Geschichte der Histopathologie (2001), pp.450-454

        The Book of Doctrine & Covenants, of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; selected from the Revelations of God. By Joseph Smith President. [The Book of Mormon]

      Liverpool: Orson Pratt. Printed by R James.. Very Good-. 1849. Second European Edition. Hardback. Rare copy. With index and dated revelations in front of volume. In original binding and in very good condition: Blind stamped buckram, sixteen mo., 16x10.5cm, errata slip bound in. William Huskins' copy with his name in contemporary ink to paste-down. Light unobtrusive cracking of inner joints, very small chip to head of lower board, faint mark to upper board, two small brown spots to endpaper. 5,000 printed. ; After an unsuccessful attempt to publish in 1833, the first edition appeared in 1835 and later editions incorporated additional revelations and reference aids. In February 1841 in Liverpool, some 4000 reprints of the 1837 Kirtland edition were printed and it was from the plates of the 'European' edition that subsequent Latter-Day Saint editions would descend. This 1849 'Second European Edition' published by Apostle Orson Pratt and printed by R James moved the index to the front of the volume (in the present volume the index is headed 'Index' and not 'Contents' as noted by the Maxwell Inst. and includes the chronology of revelations) along with other format changes which were retained for many later editions. Five thousand copies were printed and George Q Cannon used it for his translation for the Hawaii edition. The Nauvoo edition had been printed in 1844. This copy was probably published around November 1849. Citing from the Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star Vol. II, No 10 May 15th, 1849: 'The Book of Doctrine and Covenants are all gone, but soon will be reprinted'. From the same journal and volume, No. 22 November 15th 1849 'The Doctrine and Covenants' are now ready. An additional index has been formed in the order of the date in which the several revelations were given." ; xxiii[i]+336pp pages .

        Redburn: His First Voyage

      London: Richard Bentley, 1849. First edition. Bound in contemporary three-quarter red morocco over marbled boards, with marbled end papers and a marbled text block. Front hinge a little tender, but otherwise a handsome binding. Bound with contents of both volumes up front, no half-titles or title page to the second volume. Textually complete. Contemporary inscription on the title page. Redburn is the story of a young man's first voyage at sea, from New York to Liverpool and back, and was based on Melville's own first experiences as a seaman on a similar voyage, ten years before. The book was Melville's attempt at a more commercial sort of fiction - "a plain, straightforward, amusing narrative of personal experience," as he described it -- and Melville himself did not accord the book much esteem. (Indeed, Melville finished the work in under ten weeks and submitted the draft to his publisher with nary a rewrite.) Many critics, however, have enjoyed the work - F.O. Matthiessen considers Redburn "the most moving of its author's books before Moby-Dick." "But the great charm of the work is its realness. It seems to be fact word for word, bating a little that is melo-dramatic and exaggerated in the hero, at the outset. With this exception, the tale is told simply and without the least pretension; and yet, within its narrow bounds, are flashes of genuine humor, strokes of pure pathos, and real and original characters." (Contemporary Review in The Boston Post).

        Four watercolours of mountain scenery on album boards.

      Dated in pencil on 3 of the reverses : May 25th 1839, June 4th 1839, & November 13th 1849. Measuring: 25 x 36cm; 26 x 36.5 cm & 25.5 x 36cm; - Three images represent scenic views with mountains and lakes, white military tents can be seen neatly pitched on the borders of the lakes in different locations; another image shows the walls of a large ancient fortress with imposing ruins of an Indian palace above, goats and boulders on a plateau in the foreground. Two images lightly foxed; 3 corners of blank boards cut away. The water colours appear to have been executed by a participant in a military expedition, perhaps to the North-Western frontier at the time of the first Afghan War (1839-42) fought as part of the ‘Great Game’ competing for power and influence between Imperial Britain and Russia.

        Pease vs. Luce. Edgartown, 1854 - Edgertown Mining Co. Controversy.

      19 pages of manuscript. Little is known about the Edgartown Mining Company, a group that set out from Martha's Vineyard aboard the ship "Walter Scott" for the gold fields of California in 1849. In fact, a great deal of what we know is contained in the Indenture and Constitution of this company, which I sold in Maritime List 196 (http://www.tenpound.com/196/51.html) and which is now owned by the Maritime Heritage Projects. Upon landing in San Francisco some of the company got into an argument with Henry Pease, the company's director and ship's Captain. At issue was the cost of proceeding to the gold fields. Then, as the company disintegrated, the dispute spread to payment received for shipping cargo from Callao to San Francisco, and to the settlement of shares for men who had worked their passage to California, as opposed to the stockholders who traveled as passengers. Some members of the company may have stayed in California, but many of them, including Captain Pease, were back in Edgartown by 1854, when this hearing took place. This document consists of the testimony and cross examination of eleven named members of the company. This testimony reveals details about the voyage, the company itself, and what happened after they landed in San Francisco. It is docketed "Pease vs. Luce. Edgartown, Jan 11, 1854." Ichabod Luce, a member of the company, worked as 1st mate on the voyage, and is the person who lodged the complaint against Pease. Clean and legible.

        THE ENGLISH STRUWWELPETER or Pretty Stories and Funny Pictures for Little Children. After the tenth edition of the celebrated German work.

      Leipsic. Friedrich Volckmar. London, at the Agency of the German Literary Society. 1849. 24 pages printed and hand-coloured on rectos only. Original printed paper-covered boards. Quarto. Second English edition. Lacking rear blank endpaper; original covers with loss of some of the printed paper surface and generally cracked and rubbed; spine repaired and some paper restoration to covers; juvenile scribble on page 20 ['O Dear.']; some spotting and soiling internally, but generally very good and, overall, an acceptable copy of a very early edition. Contained in a morocco-backed folding box. Originally published in Germany in 1845 as Lustige Geschichten und drollige Bilder, with only 15 pages, the book was expanded and renamed Struwwelpeter in 1847. Hoffmann instructed his publishers to issue the book in strong boards but with a frail paper spine, hoping that children would quickly read the book to pieces, and parents be forced to buy another copy; this accounts for the dearth of copies surviving in original boards. As with all genuine copies of early printings, the government's tax stamp appears on the upper board. The book was first published in English in 1848.

        Eigenh. Lebenslauf mit Namenszug in der Eingangszeile.

      O. O., [um bzw. nach 1849]. - 1 S. Gr.-4to. Für den Brockhaus Verlag bestimmtes Manuskript zu seinem Lebenslauf: "Braun, Aug. Emil, geb. zu Gotha 19 April 1809 erhielt seine Schulbildung auf dem dortigen Gymnasium, welches sich damals eines gewissen Rufes erfreute. Noch vor seinem Abgange auf die Universität wurde ein nach seinem Plane in Gemeinschaft mit einem Freunde ausgefertigtes Lexicon Horatiorum als Index zu Königs Horaz publicirt. In Göttingen begann er i. J. 1829 seine Studien, die vorzugsweise auf Poesie, Kunst und Philosophie gerichtet waren. Er hörte ein ganzes Jahr lang O. Müllers sogenannte realistische Collegia. Da er sich aber überzeugte, daß dieser eminente Gelehrte in der Archäologie der Anschauung und in der Mythologie der philosophischen Begründung entbehrte, so entschloß er sich nach München zu gehn, wo er 2½ J. lang verweilte und Schelling's ganzen Lehrcursus durchmachte. In dem Hauses dieses seines unbegränzt und mit voller Hingebung verehrten Lehrers machte er auch Gerhard's Bekanntschaft und zwar in dem Augenblick, wo er im Begriff war, dies zu verlassen. Dieses Zusammentreffen entschied über seinen ganzen nachmaligen Lebensgang [.]". - Bei dem erwähnten Gerhard handelt es sich um den Archäologen Eduard Gerhard, von dem Braun 1833 als Amanuensis ans Berliner Museum berufen wurde und dem er im Herbst desselben Jahres nach Rom folgte, wo er am Istituto di Correspondenza Archeologica als Unterarchivar und Bibliothekar seine erste Stelle antrat, später Prosekretär und Redakteur von dessen Bulletino wurde, dann redigierender Sekretär und schließlich von 1840 an das Institut im wesentlichen leitete.

        The Life, Trial, and Execution of MARIA MANNING and FREDERICK G. MANNING for the Barbarous Murder of PATRICK O'CONNOR; who was Executed on Tuesday, November 13th, 1849, at Horsemonger Lane Goal.

      T. Gill, Easingwold 1849 - 16mo. 48 pp. Very sympathetic recent drab wrappers, paper title label on front wrapper. First and last page soiled, some foxing or staining here and there. The case of the "Bermondsey Horror" involves one of the most infamous trials in 19th-century England; the execution of the guilty woman and her husband by hanging occasioned public outrage from Charles Dickens and many other "decent" citizens. THE CASE: Marie Manning was an alluring 28-year-old Swiss domestic servant who was hanged outside Horsemonger Lane Gaol, London, England, on 13 November 1849, after she and her husband were convicted of the murder of her lover, Patrick O'Connor, in the case that became known as the "Bermondsey Horror." It was the first time since 1700 that a husband and wife had been executed together in England. THE TRIAL: After the arrest, the accused were moved from Horsemonger Lane to Newgate prison for the trial which opened at the Old Bailey (next door to Newgate) on Thursday, the 25th of October before Chief Justice Cresswell and lasted two days. Both were represented by counsel and the respective lawyers tried to shift responsibility for the killing from their client to the other's client. It seemed that both Frederick and Maria each expected the other to shoulder responsibility but neither would. At the end of the trial, it took the jury 45 minutes to find them both guilty. Maria lost the composure she had shown during the trial and screamed at the jury "You have treated me like a wild beast of the forest." She continued to rave at the judge as he tried to pass sentence of death upon her. They were taken back to Newgate and then across London to Horsemonger Lane Gaol to await their executions. She apparently asked the warders escorting her how they had liked her performance in court. THE EXECUTION: the public hanging of the Mannings, which Charles Dickens had witnessed, occasioned his writing two letters to the Times protesting the "barbaric" practice, emphasizing his belief that such events "had only a hardening and debasing influence on their spectators, and that from the moment a murderer was convicted he should be kept from curious visitors and reporters serving up his sayings and doings in the Sunday papers, and executed privately within the prison walls." [SOURCE: Johnson. Dickens, v. 2, p. 672]. A rare topical publication documenting this infamous trial and subsequent execution. NOT IN OCLC WORLDCAT. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
