Herman Melville
First edition and first state published by Richard Bentley in 1849. Three volumes. Contemporary half leather binding and marbled boards. A very good + set with half title pages to volumes 2 and 3 as called for. Some spotting to ffep's on all volumes and very occasional spots throughout. A lean to volume 1. Bookplates of two previous owners on first fep and board. Previous owner is noted author Philip Gosse. He was an English naturalist and populariser of natural science and innovator in the study of marine biology. Gosse created and stocked the first public aquarium at the London Zoo in 1853, and coined the term "aquarium" when he published the first manual, The Aquarium: An Unveiling of the Wonders of the Deep Sea, in 1854. His work was the catalyst for an aquarium craze in early Victorian England. First edition, preceding the U.S. edition. One of one thousand sets printed. Apart from THE WHALE, Melville's only other three volume novel. Mardi, and a Voyage Thither is the third book by American writer Herman Melville. Beginning as a travelogue in the vein of the author's two previous efforts 'Typee' and 'Omoo', the adventure story gives way to a romance story, which in its turn gives way to a philosophical quest. Scarce set especially so in this condition.

The Book of Mormon 1849 Scarce Leather Presentation Edition Scarce Liverpool 2nd European Edition Only 5,000 copies printed!! Flake 600, 563 pages! Flake 600; Crawley 415. The first printing of the Book of Mormon following the death of Joseph Smith. With minor editorial changes by Orson Pratt, and differing from the present text in two important verses (see further below). The main body of the Latter-day Saints was now struggling to survive in Utah, and had no means to publish the book there: no edition would be printed in Utah until 1871. Five thousand copies were printed, advertised in the Millennial Star ready for sale on May 15, 1849. "Reprinting the 1841 edition," explains Peter Crawley, Orson Pratt added a half title, included the testimonies of the three and eight witnesses on one page, and moved the index--now headed Contents--to the front of the book. He also made a number of minor textual changes and corrected the punctuation of the text on the title page. [Crawley, p. II:79. IMAGE SHOWN HERE: 1849 portrait of Orson Pratt, engraved by Frederick Piercy, 1849, as found in Pratt's Series of Pamphlets (not published in the Book of Mormon)] While this was the first Book of Mormon edition to be edited by Orson Pratt (who would be noted for creating the Book's modern chapter and verse system thirty years later), this was also the final Book of Mormon edition to be printed before Franklin D. Richards' addition of paragraph numbers (1852), which began the system in a simple way.

Boston & Cambridge: James Munroe & Company. New York: George P. Putnam, et al, 1849. First edition, and one of only 1000 copies printed at Thoreau's own risk, 12mo, pp. 413, [3] including the advertisement leaf for Walden; a bit of slight chipping at the top of the spine, bottom of the spine slightly cracked (but the imprint "Munroe & Co." is preserved); otherwise, a very good, bright and sound copy, in BAL's brown cloth binding 'A' ("trade binding," no priority) with no cracking of the hinges. A better copy than most. Thoreau's first book, published at his own risk, and with Walden, the only book published in his lifetime. The book did not sell well and the publisher returned a remainder of 706 copies to him in October of 1853 which prompted Thoreau to write: "I have now a library of nearly nine hundred volumes, over seven hundred of which I wrote myself. Is it not well that the author should behold the fruits of his labor?" By April of 1862, Thoreau had disposed of 111 of these copies leaving just 595. These he sold to Ticknor and Fields, and 450 of these were subsequently reissued with a new title page, dated 1862. BAL 20104; Borst A1.1a. [Attributes: First Edition]

1849 KENTUCKY CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION SIGNATURE BOOK with SIGNATURES of 95 COUNTY REPRESENTATIVES, plus Sergeant at Arms, Reporters, etc. The Constitutional Convention signatory Sign In notebook was owned by THOMAS N. LINDSEY, member of the notable LINDSEY FAMILY of FRANKFORT KENTUCKY. Thomas N. Lindsey was the Representative of Franklin County, Kentucky. His signature is on the backside of the first page. The Signature Book is 3x5 inches and filled with blank paper. Lacking the front cover, however the spine covering and rear cover are present, as are all the inner pages. It appears likely that Thomas N. Lindsey was responsible for getting the signatures of the attending Representatives and others at the Kentucky Constitutional Convention of 1849 (that led to the adoption of the Constitution of 1850). He signed his name clearly on the verso of the first page, and I believe also on the back cover though that signature is very difficult to see. Though the notebook pages were blank, Lindsey wrote 3 numbers on a page up to number 100, leaving space by each number where Representatives signed in and identified themselves by county. 94 Representatives signed in and most wrote the county they represented below their signature, some also wrote the city they were from. The spaces beside numbers 95-100 are blank. However, Thomas N. Lindsey, the representative from Franklin County, signed at the front as noted above, meaning that this notebook contains a total of 95 signatures of the Constitutional Convention Representatives. Many of the signatures are accompanied with handwritten … [Click Below for Full Description]

[ROBINSON, Second Lieutenant James?]
[Fort Dallas, Florida, 1849-1850].. Manuscript map in pencil on wove paper, short closed tear lower left, old folds. The earliest known view of Fort Dallas at the mouth of the Miami River, and as such, the earliest view of any portion of Miami, Florida, also of the earliest known surviving structure in Miami: initially slave quarters, then the Julia Tuttle Mansion, now relocated to Lummus Park. The map shows both the north and south banks of the Miami River, which is noted as being ‘five miles long', at the point where the river empties into Biscayne Bay, which is ‘3 to 8 miles wide, 40 miles long'. Fort Dallas appears on the north bank, as a cluster of small unfortified buildings. Each is identified by number in the legend on the upper half of the sheet. The living quarters of the officers stationed at the fort from 1849 to 1850 are shown: Major Woodbridge, Dr Adkins, Lieut Robinson, and Lieut. De Sagnol. They were in charge of a garrison of 51 soldiers, so naturally the view also names the Hospital Tent, the Company F Kitchen, Log House, Bake House, a ‘stone building unfinished company F 2 art[illery]', and ‘Stone building unfinished unoccupied'. These last two are clearly the stone structures begun by William English and completed by the army in the 1840s and 1850s. On the south bank of the Miami river is ‘Mr. Duke's Officer Boarding House'. Reason Duke was keeper of the lighthouse at Key Biscayne. The artist shows boats in the river, identified as ‘Kate - Lieut. Robinson's sail boat', ‘Mary - Mr Duke's government sail boat', ‘Lieut. Robinson's small skiff', ‘Dallas g … [Click Below for Full Description]

ROEMER, Ferdinand
[Bonn,: Adolph Marcus, 1849]. [Bonn,: Adolph Marcus,, 1849].. mit Zugrundelegung der geographischen Karte v. Wilson nach eigenen Beobachtungen bearbeitet von Dr. Ferd. Roemer. Large folding lithographed map, with contemporary hand-colour in outline and in part This map is of particular importance: it is the first geological map of Texas, and one of the most accurate from the Republic period. The map shows only the settled portion of the state, east of approximately the 101st meridian. Roemer identifies various geological strata by color, such as granite, alluvial, tertiary, and palaeozoic. This geological data is superimposed on an excellent topographical map that includes a wealth of human detail. He gives an excellent account of the road system, with many towns, settlements, forts, and ferries. Originally from Roemer's book ‘Texas: Mit besonderer Rucksicht auf deutsche Auswanderung und die physichen Verhaeltnisse des Landes nach eigener Beobachtung geschildert'. Ferdinand Roemer (1818-1891), known as “the father of Texas geology”, came to Texas at the instigation of Prince Carl of Solms-Braunfels to investigate the mineral resources of Texas and to produce a competent map of the country. Solms-Braunfels was particularly interested, as a large number of German immigrants were currently settling in Texas under his sponsorship. With the financial assistance of Alexander von Humboldt and the Royal Academy of Sciences in Berlin, Roemer arrived in Texas in 1845. During the ensuing year and a half, he explored most of the settled areas of the state. When he returned to Germany … [Click Below for Full Description]

[x], [11]-125; 24; [30], 180, [2] pp. 8vo. New York City carved in wood. A curious work of New York boosterism, printed to promote a model of New York city carved in wood and exactly replicating every building in the city. The model was conceived and executed by E. Porter Belden and 150 assisting artisans, at a reported cost of over $20,000, and was exhibited at the Minerva Room beginning in 1846, with the intention of exhibiting it throughout the United States. (Whitman saw it and praised it highly.) The present volume is comprised of a history of New York by Belden, written with the aid of the "vast number of statistical details" collected in the course of constructing the model. The second work gives an account of the model and describes it in detail, provides testimony to its accuracy by leading civic figures, and reprints favorable press reviews.

Washington Irving
Very Good: some foxing and seems slightly cocked: illustrations (sorony and major lithos) intact: spots on front: bibliophilic information and auction information about this particular volume pasted neatly into front on board and facing. Very nice "special" first as listed in auction reports pasted inside front: printed on heavier paper than the ordinary, contains lithographs on very heavy paper, gold-tooled cover decoration rather than blind-tooled. Some foxing throughout but still a charming representative of what many consider the first truly American author. Introduces Rip Van Winkle and continues the legendary story-telling of Diedrich Knickerbocker. Very Good Condition; 12mo (6 1/4" X 4 1/2"); green publisher's cloth with gilt Rip van Winkle and his dog on front, blind-tooled image on back outlined with geometric flourish: embossed geometric design on spine with gilt lettering of title and publisher: occasional foxing: auction notes carefully and neatly pasted inside front and on facing: Sarony and Major Lithographs: "A Book of the Hudson" by Washington Irving: "A Book of the Hudson collected from the Various Works of Diedrich Knickerbocker.

The Book of Mormon 1849 Scarce Leather Presentation Edition Scarce Liverpool 2nd European Edition Only 5,000 copies printed!! Flake 600, 563 pages! Flake 600; Crawley 415. The first printing of the Book of Mormon following the death of Joseph Smith. With minor editorial changes by Orson Pratt, and differing from the present text in two important verses (see further below). The main body of the Latter-day Saints was now struggling to survive in Utah, and had no means to publish the book there: no edition would be printed in Utah until 1871. Five thousand copies were printed, advertised in the Millennial Star ready for sale on May 15, 1849. "Reprinting the 1841 edition," explains Peter Crawley, Orson Pratt added a half title, included the testimonies of the three and eight witnesses on one page, and moved the index--now headed Contents--to the front of the book. He also made a number of minor textual changes and corrected the punctuation of the text on the title page. [Crawley, p. II:79. IMAGE SHOWN HERE: 1849 portrait of Orson Pratt, engraved by Frederick Piercy, 1849, as found in Pratt's Series of Pamphlets (not published in the Book of Mormon)] While this was the first Book of Mormon edition to be edited by Orson Pratt (who would be noted for creating the Book's modern chapter and verse system thirty years later), this was also the final Book of Mormon edition to be printed before Franklin D. Richards' addition of paragraph numbers (1852), which began the system in a simple way. INTERESTING TEXTUAL DIFFERENCES FROM MODERN BOOKS OF MORMON "Inexplicably," writes Dr. Peter Cr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dickens, Charles
Bradbury and Evans May 1849-November 1850, London. First edition in parts of "the most perfect of all the Dickens novels" (Virginia Woolf). Original serial issue. Twenty parts in nineteen, octavo four to thirty-two pages of preliminary advertisements; text continuously paginated 1-624; eight leaves of preliminaries follow text in final part. Frontispiece, vignette title-page and thirty-eight additional inserted plates, the majority with tissue inserts as issued. Original blue-green illustrated paper wrappers. Several backstrips chipped at head and foot; some light soiling, wear at hinges; some parts skewed. In excellent condition, an unrestored example of Dickens' classic work. Includes the scarce insert "Lett's diaries" advertisement at end of Part VIII, which unfolds to a 26 inches, with ten specimen diary leaves. According to Hatton & Cleaver, this is a "particularly scarce" insert. Hatton & Cleaver, pp. 253-272. Housed in a custom half morocco and chemise box. A very nice example. "With many lovers of the author's works David Copperfield ranks as the finest of his writings. With a book which gave to the world such characters as Betsy Trotwood, Micawber, the Pegottys and Mr. Dick. it would be strange if it had been otherwise" (Eckel, 77). "Dickens and Browne are the most celebrated author-artist team in the history of English book illustration," and Copperfield was their "most popular success" (Hodnett, 111-12). "Charles Dickens and Hablot Knight Browne are the most celebrated author-artist team in the history of English book illustration," and Copperfield was their "mos … [Click Below for Full Description]
