George Bell. A RARE AND UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE A LONG run of copies of NOTES AND QUERIES from 1849 through to 1993. The early volumes from 1849 to 1940 hardbound and depending on series in Blue, green brown, fawn with many of the earlier volumes tanned brown to spine. A few red quarter bounf with leather to spine. Many hut not all ex library. Generally good condition but some chips noted at spine ends and one with spine missing. 1940 through to 1993 unbound and parcelled by year.A few chapters missing but as parcel led up cannot check accurately.As far as I can see 1904 volume VI and 1916 vol 1 missing. Also 4 bound volumes of index: 1916-1923, 1923-1929, 1929-1935 and 1935-1947. Various publishers over the years including George bell, Bell & Daldry and the Bucks free press and others. Because of the large volume has been very difficult to be 100% accurate. There are over 220 volumes.The title has changed slightly over the years. It would not be possible to post and buyer would have to collect or arrange collection. This is a very scarce run of this literary work.I have listed a few photographs of this work.

HALLIWELL, James Orchard.
London: John Russell Smith, 1849 - Duodecimo in 6s. Original red sand-grain cloth, gilt lettered spine, blind ornamental panels on sides, all edges gilt, pale yellow coated endpapers. Lightly rubbed and soiled, corners bumped (lower corners rubbed through), head and tail of the spine chipped, a couple of underlinings and a manuscript footnote at p. 102 yet overall a very good copy, clean and sound. First edition of this important little work; scarce in commerce. James Orchard Halliwell (later Halliwell-Philipps, 1820-1889), antiquary and literary scholar, co-founder of both the Percy and Shakespeare Societies, is one of the most significant figures in the codification of English nursery rhymes. Popular Rhymes was a sequel to his groundbreaking Nursery Rhymes of England (1842), both of which "would remain standard works on the subject for half a century" (E. David Gregory, Victorian Songhunters: The Recovery and Edition of English Vernacular Ballads and Folk Lyrics, 1820-1883, 2006, p. 116). Most familiar to modern readers are Halliwell's versions of Tom Thumb and Chicken Licken, and his important transcription from chapbook sources of Jack the Giant-Killer (see Thomas Green, Arthuriana: Early Arthurian Tradition and the Origins of Legend, 2009, p. 148); these are gathered together in the chapter entitled "Fireside Stories". "Much more than a collection, the Popular Rhymes offered historical and comparative analysis of its verses and tales. It amplified the scope of the earlier rhyme-book with a section of nineteen folktales, obtained both from oral sources and from chapbook … [Click Below for Full Description]

Written by Nelson Knox Wheeler
Deposit, New York, 1849. Unbound. Near fine. This two-page letter measures 15.5" x 10" unfolded. It was sent by Judge Nelson Knox Wheeler from Deposit, New York to an associate, H. Ballard, at Cortlandville. It is franked with a well-margined (one just a little narrow), red-brown 5-cent Franklin postage stamp (Scott #1) . The stamp has been pen cancelled and a circular Deposit, N.Y. postmark is in the upper left corner. A Philatelic Foundation certifying that this is a genuine usage of Scott #1 on cover will be included along with a transcript of the letter. Judge Wheeler returned to his birthplace, Deposit, shortly after the end of New York's infamous Anti-Rent War during which he served as a judge and presided over a number of trials of long-term sharecroppers who, having become dissatisfied with their legal but draconian leases, attacked and killed landowners while disguised as hooded 'Calico Indians.' Although Wheeler does not mention the Anti-Rent times in his letter, he does note that he had only recently arrived in town and not been able to find an office available to rent so he could relocate his law library. Perhaps his relocation was due in part to local animosity that resulted from the trials. On its own, Wheeler's letter is interesting, and his involvement in the Anti-Rent War is fascinating, however the desirability of this correspondence is greatly increased by the genuine use of the first U. S. postage stamp, the red-brown Franklin 5-cent stamp (Scott #1), to prepay postage from a very small New York town. This is, perhaps, the only extant example of use of S … [Click Below for Full Description]

[GRAËB (Emmanuel-François-Joseph)]
ex-gouverneur de Bourbon (île de la Réunion) adressées à ses anciens camarades des différents corps de la marine. Paris, Imprimerie et lithographie de Maulde et Renou, 1849, in-8, demi-basane brune, dos lisse, couverture imprimée conservée [Rel. moderne], fortes traces d'humidité, plats gondolés. 16 pp. Ryckebusch, 3616. Un seul exemplaire au CCF (BnF). Très rare justification d'Emmanuel-François-Joseph Graëb (1790-1850), qui fut gouverneur de la colonie de l'île Bourbon de juin 1846 à octobre 1848. Il dut sa mise à la retraite d'office non seulement à la Révolution de février 1848 dans la métropole et à sa décision d'abolir l'esclavage dans les colonies, mais aussi à la fâcheuse "affaire Monnet" de 1847. Alexandre Monnet (1812-1849), missionnaire en service dans l'île depuis 1840, revenait d'un voyage en France et en Italie, où le pape Pie IX l'avait distingué pour son travail d'évangélisation en faveur des esclaves de la colonie. Fermement abolitionniste, il fut malmené et insulté le 12 septembre 1847 lors de son débarquement : la population créole, inquiète des progrès de plus en plus importants des idées abolitionnistes, lui avait réservé un accueil exécrable, qui se poursuivit par une agitation toute la journée du 13. Le gouverneur était étrangement absent pendant les incidents, et, à son retour le 14, tout en désapprouvant pour la forme les manifestations, il décida de faire expulser le missionnaire, qui rembarqua le 28 septembre 1848 sur le navire Le Pionnier. Il devait ensuite être nommé second évêque de Madagascar ; en attendant, l'attitude du gouverneur avait in … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAYO, Herbert
Frankfurt o/M., John David Sauerlaender and Edinburgh, Blackwood, 1849. 8vo., 152pp., with at least 10 manuscript corrections to the text, perhaps in the author's hand, original blind-stamped cloth, recently rebacked and with a printed spine label. A very good presentation copy inscribed in ink 'From the Author' on fly-leaf, and with the signatures of Tho. Watson* and Wm. R.E. Smart> on title-page. First edition in book form: based on letters published in Blackwood's Magazine> in 1847. Wellcome IV, p.92. A good collection of articles on the divining rod, vampyrism, unreal ghosts, real ghosts, trance, somnambulism, catalepsy, religious delusions, and mesmerism. Herbert Mayo (1796-1852) had a distinguished career in both London and Germany as a physiologist. After his retirement in 1843 from his teaching post at the Middlesex Hospital, he found relief in Germany from hydropathic treatment, becoming physician in a hydropathic establishment at Boppart, and afterwards at Bad Weilbach. 'In the later years of his life he had thrown himself into the hands of the mesmerists, and his work on the Truths contained in Popular Superstitions> is an ably written exposition of his views regarding the supposed cause of mesmeric and kindred phenomena.' [DNB] * Thomas Watson is almost certainly Sir Thomas Watson (1792-1882), the physician and professor at University College and King's College, London.

GEDNEY, Thomas R.
Near Fine. Group of 16 letters, each Signed by Thomas R. Gedney to his commanding officer, addressed as "Dear Commodore", several headed by Gedney "Ship Plymouth" or "U.S. Flag Ship Plymouth." Each is one or two pages on a bifolium, various dates, between August 1849 and January 1850. The letters seem to be both in Gedney's, and other secretarial hands, each Signed by Gedney (often with additional Initialed postscripts). Old folds from being sent, small tears or nicks, overall near fine.Gedney was a central figure in the Amistad Affair, when he re-took the ship from the slaves who had taken it from Spanish slavers. His decision to apply for compensation for the salvage value of the slaves was, at least legally, the precipitating incident of the legal case that surrounded and largely defined the event. The website of the Federal Judicial Center (http://www.fjc.gov/history/home.nsf/page/tu_amistad_bio_gedney.html) perhaps explains it better than we could:"Thomas Gedney's decision to file a libel for salvage in the schooner Amistad brought the case to the federal courts and set in motion the proceedings that eventually led to the Supreme Court's decision freeing the captive Africans. Without that libel, the court never would have ordered the arrest of the Mende [tribesmen] on board, the Spanish owners would have had no reason to file their own property claims, and the Spanish government's demand for the ship and its passengers might have been met by the Secretary of State without any participation of the federal courts. The admiralty claim of Gedney and his crew had the unint … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moore, Thomas
London: Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans, 1849. London: Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans. Very Good. 1849. Hardcover. Black leather boards with gilt imprint on front and rear boards; five raised bands and title gilt on spine; all edges are gilt, and includes a fore edge painting.

Ex-library with three rubber stamps on verso of title page. Boards have moderate soiling and light wear to all edges and spine; pastedowns, endpapers and title page have moderate soiling; p. 88 and 89 have heavy toning likely from a bookmark, otherwise text block is clean. The fore edge painting is based on the ballad "As Once a Grecian Maiden Wove" on p. 95, and which is also interpreted on the frontis.

A collection of songs and ballads by Thomas Moore, Irish poet and composer, known for notable works such as "Irish Melodies" and "Lalla Rookh." A beautiful book with a rare fore edge painting, does justice to the beautiful works of this Romantic poet. ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 284 pp .

GEDNEY, Thomas R.
Near Fine. Group of 16 letters, each Signed by Thomas R. Gedney to his commanding officer, addressed as "Dear Commodore", several headed by Gedney "Ship Plymouth" or "U.S. Flag Ship Plymouth." Each is one or two pages on a bifolium, various dates, between August 1849 and January 1850.

The admiralty claim of Gedney and his crew had the unint … [Click Below for Full Description]
