        A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers

      James Munroe & Company 1849 - A great copy of Thoreau's first book - published at his own expense in an edition of 1,000 copies - less than 300 sold, and in 1853 the remainder was returned to him. Trivial wear to spine foot and ends, else a fine crisp copy with bright gilt and quite internally clean. An untouched copy. Ex-Jacob Chester Chamberlain, noted turn of the century collector with notes in his hand on page 396, along with his acquisition slip from another noted collector, Beverly Chew of the Grolier Club in New York City. Housed in an amazing contemporary custom pull off case with elaborate tooling, commissioned by Chamberlain as was his custom for many of his most fantastic books. This copy sold at Anderson's 1st Editions of Ten American Authors Chamberlain auction of 1909. This copy also contains two contemporary ownership signatures. Most interestingly one of a Roswell Foster - a reverend in the Concord/general New England area and a contemporary of Thoreau. A few notes in the book about landmarks would point to Foster's hand or at least someone else with intimate knowledge of the areas Thoreau traversed with his brother. A fine copy with a fine history- [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Mardi and a Voyage Thither

      New York: Harper and Brothers, 1849 Two volumes. First American edition, first printing. Publisher's brown T cloth binding, with the publisher's decorative monogram device surrounded by geometric and floral decorations stamped in blind to the boards, boards triple-ruled in blind, spines with nine rules and decorative compartments stamped in blind, spines lettered in gilt, pale yellow coated endpapers. About near fine, with some minor wear to the extremities, light toning and a hint of soiling to the spines, faint rubbing to the otherwise bright boards, former owner's 1850 inscriptions to the front pastedowns, sturdy bindings without any signs of starting, light spotting to the otherwise clean pages. Overall, a very bright and attractive set, free of any repairs or restoration. BAL 13658. Mardi is Herman Meville's third book and marks a departure from his first two works, Typee (1846) and Omoo (1847), which are more autobiographical in nature. Mardi begins like Melville's preceding novels with a fictional South Seas whaling adventure story, but quickly changes into a more allegorical and experimental text when the main characters abandon their vessel and travel to a variety of fictional, symbolic countries. Melville's use of poetry and song also makes this text unique. While it was heavily criticized upon publication, Mardi is best understood within the greater context of his entire body of writing. Rather than continue to produce variations of his first two successful novels, Melville pushed himself to improve on his own writing, and, while perhaps not fully recognized in Mardi, this laid the groundwork for his later novels, including White-Jacket (1850) and Moby Dick (1851). This first American edition, published April 14, 1849, was preceded only by the three volume first British edition, published on March 16th of the same year.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        "Laugh it off!" and The Manger Song of Mary. Autograph musical manuscripts of two complete songs. Signed in full

      Unrecorded and presumably unpublished. The texts are by Henry Rutherford Elliot (1849-1906), a journalist in New York, and Edwin Markham (1852-1940), an American poet. "Laugh it off!" is a humorous song in a popular style; The Manger Song of Mary is a lullaby in a more sophisticated style. The correspondence suggests that both of Vidal's songs were slated for publication by Hinds, Hayden & Eldredge in 1923; the scribal copies were most likely intended as engraver's copies. One of the poets (Elliot), however, was no longer alive; there are no materials in the present collection mentioning his heirs. In any case, the SACEM forms (also Markham's) remained unsigned. The publication stalled, and the songs were apparently never published. A French conductor, teacher and composer, " Vidal is particularly remembered as a fine teacher who was sympathetic to new ideas. At the Paris Conservatoire he taught classes in solfège (from 1894), piano accompaniment (from 1896) and composition (from 1909)... Vidal';s most successful compositions were the ballet La maladetta (1893), which had been performed nearly 200 times by 1930, and the light opera Eros." David Charlton in Grove Music Online.

      Frankfurt, (Naumann), 1848-1849. - Vollständige, äußerst seltene Folge, die im 8. Stück (S. 49-60) das „Gesetz betreffend die Grundrechte des deutschen Volks" und im 16. Stück (S. 101-147) die von der Nationalversammlung am 28. März 1849 bekundete Verfassung des deutschen Reiches enthält. Es handelt sich hier um den 1.

Publisher's ads on the rear wrapper. ? A chapbook of descriptions of popular games for children, including marbles, skipping rope, tag, kite-flying, see-saw, archery, and most prominently playing ball: "There are a great number of games played with Balls, of which Base-Ball, Trap-Ball, Cricket, Up-Ball, Catch-Ball, and Drive Ball, are the most common." Two of the illustrations depict ball players. ? There were several works similar to this one in the preceding decade, but they described different games, and this one is important for its relatively early reference to "base-ball." Some slight wear and foxing; very good copy. Block, Baseball Before We Knew it, page 212 Probably the first edition of the text, but this is a work highly derivative of earlier works.

        A Map of Niagara River 4 Miles above and 3 below the Falls.

      E.A. Maynard Book and Job Printer, Buffalo 1849 - Folio (25½" X 19½"), folded into 24mo marbled paper over boards case with printed label. Very good. Original folds visible but with almost no separations; bit of wear to some map edges; case hinge delicate, but expertly, archivally strengthened, thus tight. A lovely, bold copy of this exceptional pictorial lithographed map, printed on unusually thin paper -- making this a rare survivor indeed. A large "Explanation of the Map" fills the entire lower left third, offering both detailed text on twenty specific numbered features on the map and panoramic lithograph of the Falls, while a small "Remarks" box at lower right offers details about the Falls. The map itself is dramatic and simple, showing the landmarks, streets and select buildings around the Falls itself. A boxed list of five hotels featured immediately below the map's title near the center suggests the mercantile nature of this map -- tourism. Printed label on front case board lists title as "Johnson's New Map of Niagara Falls" and includes a small steel-engraved vignette, while the front pastedown is a full-length portrait of an Indian. Rear board bears 1909 engraved bookplate of "The Americana Library of Charles D. Marshall," 1100 books and maps of which were selected by the Buffalo Historical Society and appropriately bookplated by permission of this wealthy collector's niece, Hazel Marshall Koerner, supposedly following her uncle's wishes; but the gift was never made official by the estate, and in the fall of 1913 the heirs demanded that the material be sent to a New York auction house, where it was auctioned to the public on March 16-18 of 1914. Interestingly, the David Rumsey Map Collection depicts a similar 1849 printing of this map, but it shows "H.G. Johnson" rather than "G.W. Johnson" as the cartographer, and the lower left corner of the Rumsey map does not show the "E.A. Maynard Book and Job Printer, Republic Office, Buffalo" which appears in fine print of this copy, below the "Copyright Secured according to Act of Congress -- 1849" citation that appears on both maps. Other 1848 printings, however, cite G.W. Johnson and show the E.A. Maynard text line, which suggests that the Rumsey copy is some other, perhaps later reprint. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De to Baronesser. Roman i tre Dele.

      Kjøbenhavn, 1849 (recte 1848).. Bound in a lovely, very elegant later blue half calf with 4 raised bands to gilt spine (Anker Kyster). Spine faded. And excellent copy. With the ownership inscription og Famous H.C. Andersen-collector Eiler Høeg to front free end-paper and his ex-libris to inside of front board. Half-title and last leaf browned due to the acidic blank paper in front and back. Otherwise very nice and clean.. First edition, presentation-copy for Signe Læssøe, of Andersen's popular novel "The Two Baronesses", which describes the Danish peasant oppression and displays an optimistic belief that society is headed towards more humane conditions. The presentation-inscription, which reads: "Min kjære, moderlige/ Veninde/ Fru Læssøe/ Hjerteligst/ Fra/ Forfatteren" ("My dear, motherly/ Friend/ Mrs. Laessoe/ From/ The Author"), is highly important. Signe Læssøe (1781-1870) was one of Andersen's close female friends and was part of his very most inner circle. Over time (she had known Andersen since ab. 1830), she and Andersen developed such a close relationship that it resembled that of mother and son. Andersen confided in her like in no one else (among other things the sad story about his drunken mother, of whom he was terribly ashamed and almost never talked). Later on, however, the relationship grew a bit tense, as Signe Læssøe constantly corrected Andersen when she found his writing poor of banal, which greatly annoyed Andersen. BFN: 539

        THE CALIFORNIA AND OREGON TRAIL: BEING SKETCHES OF PRAIRIE AND ROCKY MOUNTAIN LIFE

Minor scattered foxing. Very good. In a green half morocco slipcase. A rare variant state of the first printing of this landmark work, with blue cloth and 8 pages of advertisements at the end. One of the classics of western travel literature, Parkman's work may be the most familiar piece of that genre to modern readers. The exciting adventures of the young Boston Brahmin loose on the plains make excellent reading. Field remarks: "Mr. Parkman had all the genuine love of adventure of a frontiersman, the taste for the picturesque and romantic of an artist, and the skill in narration of an accomplished raconteur. It is not too high praise to say that his pictures of savage life are not excelled...." WAGNER-CAMP 170:1a. HOWES P97, "aa." BAL 15446. COWAN, p.474. RADER 2608. MINTZ 359. RITTENHOUSE 450.

        Cosmos: A sketch of a physical description of the universe.

      London: Henry G. Bohn 8vo (18.8 cm, 7.4"). 5 vols. I: Frontis., xvii, [1], ix, [1], 369, [3], 18, 40 (adv.) pp. II: xxi, 370–742, 16 pp. III: [6], 289, [1], 8, 32 (adv.) pp. IV: xv, [1], 291–601, [1], 7, [1], 32 (adv.) pp. V: viii, 500 pp.. 1849–58 Early edition of this ambitious translation, done by Elise C. Otté (with assistance from Benjamin Horatio Paul and William Sweetland Dallas for vols. 4 and 5, respectively) and first published in 1845 through 1848, with this edition being part of the "Bohn's Scientific Library" series. The work was written by German naturalist, explorer, and diplomat Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander Freiherr von Humboldt, famed for his scientific observations of Latin America as well as for the present, groundbreaking overview of natural science. Humboldt's exploits and writings served as an inspiration for countless other scientists (including Charles Darwin), and his encyclopedic approach to describing our world as a whole, in terms of all of its natural phenomena, helped launch science's ongoing search for the unifying principles of the universe.

        Wühlerpraxis. Commentar zu Struwwelpeters "Handbuch für Wühler". Zum Besten eines allgemeinen deutschen Wühlerspitals.

      Grimma, Verlag des Verlags-Comptoirs, 1849.. Erste Auflage. Mit Holzschn.-Titelvignette. 36 S. Rückenbroschur. Friedländer 130. - Sehr seltene Satire auf die deutschen Revolutionäre mit der originellen Titelvignette: Ein typisch gewandeter, wild dreinblickender "Wühler" steht auf einer Deutschlandkarte und tritt mit dem Fuß auf die Königskrone. "Wühler" stellte die Bezeichnung für Demokraten und Linke dar, während "Heuler" die Konservativen bezeichnete. - Die "Wühlerpraxis" knüpft an das 1848 erschienene "Handbüchlein für Wühler" von Henrich Hoffmann, dem Verfasser des "Struwwelpeters", an; es wird die identische Titelvignette verwendet, auch die satirische Stoßrichtung und die Typographie sind sehr vergleichbar. Allerdings konnte ich keine Bestätigung für die Autorenschaft Hoffmanns bei der vorliegenden Schrift finden. - Unaufgeschnitten. Tls. etwas gebräunt.

        [TWO AUTOGRAPH LETTERS, SIGNED, BY AN ENTERPRISING VIRGINIAN, RECORDING HIS OVERLAND TRIP TO CALIFORNIA AND RELATED BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS]

      Baltimore & Santa Fe, 1849. Two letters, each folded to quarto format. Old folds. Minor stains and single hole in Santa Fe letter, with slight loss to one word, else in fine condition. Two autograph letters, signed, from W.C. Winston, an enterprising Virginian who made the overland journey to California in 1849, to his father, A. Winston at Culpepper Court House in Virginia. Together, the letters describe the journey from Fort Smith, Arkansas to Santa Fe, New Mexico in April and May 1849, and business transactions undertaken in preparation of the journey. The three-page letter describing the overland journey from Arkansas to New Mexico was written from Santa Fe on June 5, 1849. The expedition left Fort Smith on April 11 and with the exception of a few days of rest, travelled constantly until reaching Santa Fe. Winston provides much detail about the landscape and discusses the minimal amount of game encountered along the way. "The first 200 miles of our journey was through a country abundant in grass, wood, & water, the remainder of it with some little exception was ever a perfect desert, almost destitute of all, we were often compelled to carry both wood and water, and camped frequently without either...A small portion of the country only to our disappointment abounded with game, we shot four buffalo, one of which I had the gratification of killing myself, and I also shot an antelope, a very shy and swift animal, its flesh was the best we had on the route." Winston also reflects on the difficulties of the journey and his hopes for the future: "Our journey has been one of constant toil and fatigue, and whilst we have escaped serious indispositions, we have all lost flesh and strength. We entertain the consoling hope that a short time will terminate it, and place us in the Eldorado of the west, where I trust we may be rewarded for our trials." The accompanying one-page letter, written in Baltimore on Feb. 19, 1849, details financial and commercial transactions which W.C. Winston completed prior to his overland journey. He informs his father that "W. Henry Fitzhugh has cashed the note for me at 6 months upon which you are endorsed, W.F. is willing and will stand the time of its payment. This was the best an agreement I could make, I expect to be able to take it up within the year, but first, hope it will give you no great inconvenience." Winston also writes of goods he has bought which he hopes to sell at the end of the journey: "I am completing some purchases here for California, the total with insurance & freight will amount to 2000 dollars. Such things...which profits will most certainly be made, whiskey, a small quantity of other liquor, tobacco, tin, and other wares, some clothing & boots, provisions, machinery, mining implements, etc." A fine pair of letters regarding the overland travel in 1849, with much detail concerning the journey and related business transactions.
