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]

Frontispiece, vignette title-page and thirty-eight additional inserted plates, the majority with tissue inserts as issued. Original blue-green illustrated paper wrappers.

"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).

Item #43832 "According to Camp, Charles Webber was a former Texas Ranger who, fascinated by tales of gold and quicksilver in the country north of the Gila River, wrote this lurid tale of border life to promote an expedition into the area. He succeeded in organizing the 'Centralia Exploring Expedition to California via the Valleys of the Pecos, to Gila and the Colorado of the West.' The expedition, however, suffered cholera on the lower Rio Grande and the loss of horses at Corpus Christi. As a result, the project was abondoned and Webber never reached California." [W-C-B].

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]

Henry D Thoreau
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]

The impact of Der Freischütz on opera of the 1820s, 30s, and 40s is evident, as it inspired a spate of gothic works like the vampire operas of Marschner and Lindpaintner, and even as late a work as Der fliegende Holländer owes much to it; outside Germany, its success as Robin des Bois prepared the way for Meyerbeer’s Robert le diable."

Layard met the British ambassador to Turkey, Stratford Canning, who employed him as an unofficial traveller. Canning was interested in archaeology, and Layard's description of the mounds at Nineveh prompted him to finance his own expedition, superintended by Layard. The expeditions took place in 1846 and 1847, and were eventually part sponsored by the trustees of the British Museum. Hence, … [Click Below for Full Description]

A clean nice example of this rare Utah Territorial scrip, and the first thing printed in the Great Basin. Signed by Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, Newell K. Whitney and Thomas Bullock."It is definite enough that the first use of the press by the Mormon settlers was in January, 1849, for the production of paper currency. Furthermore, it is gratifyingly definite that the first printer was Brigham H. Young, with the perhaps unskilled aid of Thomas Bullock." - McMurtrie p.16."The first actual printing executed in Deseret consisted of these several impressions of scrip, issued in different denominations and used as a medium of exchange in Great Salt Lake City's cash poor economy. These bills are known interchangeably by the colloquialisms of the 'White Notes' and 'Valley Notes.' - Saunders p.109.McMurtrie 1. Saunders 3. Mormon Money pp. 17-18. Nyholm pp. 148-153.

CHAPMAN AND HALL, London, 1849. What is rather magnificent about this book is that inside it had an old note, written in ink, on an old piece of brown paper, and hand-written by Harold Locke, who was himself an author and made famous for his work as Arthur Conan Doyle's first official biographer. The note states: 1st Issue of this Work: This contains the 14 pictures by G.C. only 9 of which appear in the 1st & 2nd Edition. 5 of the best pictures having been omitted, from the important editions, because 1/6 can't buy much.

I would not have known who this was but for his signature on the title page which reads: 'Frederick Barne, Dunwich, April 11th, 1858' Frederick Barne was an English landowner and politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1830 to 1832. In 1830 he was elected Member of Parliament for the rotten borough of Dunwich, the previous MP being his father. He held the seat until 1832 when it was abolished under the 1832 Reform Act. - Condition: THE BINDING: Green cloth with blind tooling and decoration to the front and rear board.

Johan Friederich August Breithaupt (1791-1873) was an influential German mineralogist who discovered more than 40 minerals and was among the first to study pseudomorphs. "Breithaupt's greatest contribution by far to mineralogy and to the study of ore deposits was his little book, Die Paragenesis der Mineralien. Although others had noticed that there is some regularity in the association of different minerals, he was the first to make a comprehensive study of such minerals... The importance of his work in this field was immediately recognized" (DSB). [Attributes: First Edition]

Boston: 1849. Anniroc Rare Books ------ First Edition. Minor wear to spine ends, lettering at spine foot rubbed off, else a fine crisp copy with bright gilt and quite internally clean. Quite rare in this condition, even 100 years ago when this book was auctioned off. Thoreau's first book - 1000 copies published at his own expense of which only 550 were bound - less than 300 were sold or given away by the publisher Munroe and Thoreau, and in 1853 the remainder was returned to him whereupon he hauled it up to his attic and sarcastically bemoaned the dismal sales. Ex-Jacob Chester Chamberlain, famed turn of the century collector with three lines of text dropped by the publisher penciled 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. Sold at Anderson's 1st Editions of Ten American Authors Chamberlain auction of 1909 along with a myriad of rarities. 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.

Charles Kean
London: 1849. Charles John Kean (1811-1868) was destined to usher Shakespeare into the forefront of the Victorian public consciousness. His father, Edmund Kean (1787-1833), had been lauded as a restorer of Shakespeare, garnering success through his passionate portrayals of Hamlet, Lear, and others. Charles would prove an antithesis to his father's Romantic point of view, instead favoring scholarship and self-control over pathos and impulsivity, and aimed to 'satisfy the Victorian audience's appetite for instruction disguised as entertainment and accompanied by magnificent trimmings' (Finkel, '"A True and Perfect Mirror...": costumes for Charles Kean's revivals of Shakespeare's plays, 1852-1859', Dress, 14 (1), p. 7). He would succeed in creating a national theatre through Shakespearean revival. In 1848, Kean was appointed director of royal theatricals at Windsor Castle, which led to his management of the Princess's Theatre in London, in the next decade. Kean won Victoria and Albert's favour with ease and, subsequently, his fame grew. Victoria's admiration of Kean's appreciation of realism and historical detail was often noted in her journals: 'Shakespeare's historical Tragedy of "King John" was admirably given [by Kean's company] ... What a noble splendid Play it is & what a man Shakespeare was! What knowledge of human nature, - what language, - what poetry, - what power of portraying characters! The dresses were magnificent & strictly correct, & the grouping, in spite of the small stage & space was beautiful. Kean acted admirably & so did Mrs Kean...'

SUMMARY: The Lancashire Witches is the only one of William Harrison Ainsworth's forty novels that has remained continuously in print since its first publication. It was serialized in the Sunday Times newspaper in 1848; a book edition appeared the following year, published by Henry Colburn. The novel is based on the true story of the Pendle witches, who were executed in 1612 for causing harm by witchcraft. Ainsworth based his story largely on the official account of the Lancashire witch trials written by the clerk to the court, Thomas Potts, first published in 1613 under the title The Wonderfull Discoverie of Witches in the Countie of Lancaster. Potts himself makes an appearance in the book, as a "scheming and self-serving lawyer". The novel consists of four parts, each written as a third-person narrative.

HOFFMANN, Dr. Heinrich.
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.
