        Poesias.

      Lisbon, Casa da Viuva Bertrand e Filhos, 1850. - 8°, contemporary red quarter morocco, spine gilt with short author and title (slight wear). Scattered light foxing, but overall in very good, attractive condition. Half-title has rubber stamp with portrait of Camilo Castello Branco; signature of Freitas Fortuna in blank portion of title. (2 ll.), 326 pp., (1 l.). *** FIRST SEPARATE COLLECTED EDITION of Herculano's poetry, which had appeared earlier in various periodicals and in Harpa do Crente, 1838. By 1850 Herculano was a well respected historian. That and the taste for romantic poetry made Poesias a best-seller. It appeared again in 1860, and by the 1950s had gone through fourteen editions. There have been a number of editions since. Brito Aranha devotes nearly 50 pages to an analysis of the substantial changes Herculano made from the original versions of these poems. While Herculano is best known for his historical works, Bell comments that "Some of the poems of A Harpa do Crente [reprinted as part I of this collection] . rise to noble heights by reason of a fine conviction and a rugged grandeur, as of blocks of granite" (p. 293).Herculano (1810-1877) is recognized as the greatest Portuguese historian of the nineteenth century, and one of the greatest that country ever produced. A complete volume of Innocêncio is devoted to a bibliography and analysis of his works, which include Historia da origem e estabelecimento da Inquisição em Portugal, 3 volumes, Lisbon 1854-59, and Historia de Portugal, 4 volumes, Lisbon 1846-53, both of which have appeared in numerous subsequent editions. Herculano was a novelist as well as a poet and historian, and is responsible for introducing to Portugal the historical romance in the manner of Sir Walter Scott, which influenced Almeida Garrett and later authors.*** Innocêncio I, 35; XXI, 410-57. Not in Ticknor Catalogue. Bell, Portuguese Literature pp. 292-5. Saraiva & Lopes, História da literatura portuguesa (1972) pp. 785-808 (especially pp. 788-91 and 805-6). Porbase locates a single copy, in the Biblioteca Geral da Universidade de Coimbra [!?]. Copac adds a copy at Glasgow. NUC: DLC, MiU, MH, ICN. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Photo Album]: Philadelphia Victorian Family Album

      Webb S. Keller, [Philadelphia] 1850 - Small quarto measuring 7.5" x 10". Gilt edges. A collection of 39 black and white or sepia toned photographs most measuring about 4" x 6". Very good, lacking the boards and spine with near fine photographs. A photo album of mounted oval portraits from the mid 1800s of a family from the Philadelphia area. There are few captions except beneath two pictures of young girls labeling them as Josephine and May Hencken and one below the picture of a child that reads, Elias Joseph Hencken Freeland. The photographs are all of well-dressed Victorian era Americans both men and women as well as children and adults. Three of the photos are laid in: one of an older woman reading on a porch, another is a portrait of a man, and the final is a young soldier in the uniform of the U.S. Cavalry. It would seem that the generation of Freelands represented in this album migrated to Philadelphia and New Jersey from the town of Freeland, Pennsylvania after a family homestead, dubbed Fort Freeland, was destroyed in a battle with Native Americans in 1778, causing something of a generational migration east.

        Rear Admiral Sir James Clark Ross, D.C.L: F.R.S. From the Original Portrait in the Royal Hospital Greenwich by several Naval Officers & Scientific Men in honour of his great discoveries & Achievements in the Arctic and the Antarctic Regions

      [London 1850 - Mezzotint portrait, engraved by Alexander Scott after Stephen Pearce. Sheet size: approx. 23 x 17 1/2 inches. A fine portrait of Polar explorer James Clark Ross. The nephew of Arctic explorer Sir John Ross, James Clark Ross accompanied his uncle on his first voyage to the Arctic in 1818 before serving under William Parry on his expeditions to the Arctic between 1819 and 1827. His most noted Arctic accomplishment, however, would be on Sir John Ross' second voyage, where he led a small party to locate the position of the North Magnetic Pole on 1 June 1831 on the Boothia Peninsula. Following that success, James Clark Ross was given command of the ships Erebus and Terror (later of Sir John Franklin fame) on a voyage to the Antarctic. On that 1839-1843 expedition, Ross forced his way through the ice pack becoming the first to enter what would be named Ross Sea and to lay eyes on numerous Antarctic features, including the Ross Ice Shelf, Victoria Land, the Admiralty Mountains and more. Both his discovery of the Magnetic North Pole, as well as his attainment of the highest southern latitude to date are commemorated on this fine portrait. The artist, Stephen Pearce, painted two portraits of Ross (1800-1862): . the original of the present image which remains in Greenwich, as well as one now in the National Portrait Gallery, London.

        Book Label Collection 1700-1900 including reading societies and circulating libraries

      Unpublished, England and Scotland and Ireland 1850 - Collection of 142 book labels, 1770-1925, including the labels of reading societies and circulating libraries, the collection having a slight Scottish bias. The labels have been tipped onto 22 sheets of A4 card along the top edge, mounted both recto and verso, currently housed in an 'Ofrex Duralon' display folder. Only one book label 'Liber Joannis S. Martin' which appears to be seventeenth century or perhaps earlier predates 1750. The labels include 'Andrew Lang Sheriff Clerk Selkirk No.' (father of writer Andrew Lang and assistant to Sir Walter Scott), 'George Goldie Edinburgh' (annotated in ink with number), George Hennekey (particularly elegant 1820s design with name wreathed in Blakean clouds), Ivor Stewart (Chairman of Liberty), 'Louis Oppenheimer, White Waltham Place' (c 1920), 'Alexander Glennie Clapham Common' (abolitionist) 'Lord Henry Fitzroy', Thomas Phillips of Brunswick Square (benefaction to College of St Davids) etc. Library labels include two for 'Fintry'/ 'Fintray' House Library, Tixall Library, Bath Club library; Dogmersfield Library, Crowther Circulating Library, 3 labels for 'The Bath Club Library', 'Muirkirk Reading Society', 'The Queenwood Boys' Sunday Library'and 'Vectis Reading Society'. There is a clutch of particularly impressive womens' labels including 'Elizabeth Unsworth's Book, Bury' and 'Stratton Street Library, Harriet Duchess of St Albans' (second wife of Sir Thomas Coutts), 'Eleanor Horridge, Wakefield' and 'Mrs Spunner' (strikingly printed on shiny black paper - probably Irish). The final section of labels includes a couple of dozen mid-Victorian examples printed on gaudy coloured paper, including'George Pilkington, Manchester' and 'George Wightwick' (presumably the architect and author). The collection has been arranged thematically and with some care; there are frequent pencil annotations alongside the labels revealing significant knowledge on the part of the unnamed compiler. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information about this book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Renversement de la morale chrétienne par les desordres du Monachisme. Enrichi de 50 figures.

      Ou les Vend en Hollande, s. data (ma 1850 circa), S. luogo, - In 8° (23x18 cm); (16), 51 c. di tav. (compresa antiporta ripiegata). Bellissima legatura artigianale della seconda metà dell’ottocento in piena pelle scura con ricca cornice in oro e a secco ai piatti. Al piatto anteriore impresso a secco lo stemma papale e 4 borchie lavorate agli angoli del piatto. Tagli zigrinati. Qualche macchiolina lievissima di foxing all’antiporta, del tutto ininfluente e per il resto esemplare in ottime condizioni di conservazione. Interno dei piatti foderati con elegante carta verde con ricchi fregi floreali in oro. Rarissima edizione di questa celebre raccolta di stampe dall’incerta attribuzione, edita per la prima volta in Olanda tra il 1685, anno in cui l'editto di Nantes dichiarò il protestantesimo illegale in tutta la Francia, e il 1689, anno della morte di papa Innocenzo XI al quale, per presa in giro, viene attribuito il. Le tavole sono solitamente attribuite a Jacob Gole e Cornelis Dusart. L’antiporta ripiegata è opera di Romeyn de Hooghe e porta il titolo "L’Abrage du faux clergé Romain" ed in esso si vede Cristo al centro della stampa che stilla monete dalle stigmate mentre vari rappresentati del clero raccolgono le monete. Alcuni monaci operano su una pressa che porta il simbolo gesuita impresso. Sotto la scena un componimento satirico in versi. Dopo il frontespizio, seguono 15 pagine con 50 pamphlet satirici ognuno corrispondente ad una delle tavole numerate. In fine al volume 50 magnifiche tavole allegoriche con immagini di monaci, frati e cardinali intenti nelle più svariate attività peccaminose. Il volume è un violentissimo pamphlet anticattolico rivolto verso la corte di Francia, composto in seguito alla revoca dell’Editto di Nantes, decreto Emanato dal re Enrico IV nell'aprile 1598 per porre fine alla serie di guerra di che religione che da più di trent’anni avevano devastato Francia. In esso veniva per la prima volta regolarizzata la posizione degli Ugonotti (calvinisti). Quando nel 1685 Luigi XIV decise con l’editto di Fontainebleau, di revocare l’editto di Nantes grande fu la protesta dei calvinisti d’Europa. Con questo secondo Editto le chiese ugonotte persero la maggior parte dei loro diritti oltre che anche dei loro averi a favore della corona di Francia e delle istituzioni cattoliche, aprendo un nuovo periodo di conflitti religiosi. L’opera venne ristampata nella prima metà dell’ottocento in ambienti antipapisti e antiborbonici quando con la Restaurazione, Corona di Francia e Chiesa Cattolica siglarono una nuovo patto per la preservazione dei valori tradizionali e la religione cattolica divenne, dopo la bufera rivoluzionaria, nuovamente la religione ufficiale dello stato francese.

Very good, lacking the boards and spine with near fine photographs. A photo album of mounted oval portraits from the mid 1800s of a family from the Philadelphia area. There are few captions except beneath two pictures of young girls labeling them as Josephine and May Hencken and one below the picture of a child that reads, Elias Joseph Hencken Freeland. The photographs are all of well-dressed Victorian era Americans both men and women as well as children and adults. Three of the photos are laid in: one of an older woman reading on a porch, another is a portrait of a man, and the final is a young soldier in the uniform of the U.S. Cavalry. It would seem that the generation of Freelands represented in this album migrated to Philadelphia and New Jersey from the town of Freeland, Pennsylvania after a family homestead, dubbed Fort Freeland, was destroyed in a battle with Native Americans in 1778, causing something of a generational migration east.

Fanny wrote the above two volumes about her time traveling through India on horseback and befriending people around her while learning Persian, Hindustani and Urdu. Written in a lively style her detailed and interesting memoirs reveal her independence of mind. Parkes allows a pre-colonial perspective of northern India and its peoples and customs, recording changes in Britain's governing of India, the economic impact of such policies, and domestic problems in Indian society, from 1822–45. The people she encountered included wealthy socialites as well as famine stricken residents of Kanauj seen during a trip over mountains from Landour to Simla. Parkes' narrative reflects her admiration and respect for the richness of Indian culture. Including a glossary of terms and a collection of translated Indian proverb‘Fanny was a passionate lover of India and, though a woman of her time, in her writing and her travels did her best to understand and build bridges across the colonial divide,’ William Dalrymple.

Title in contemporary manuscript on front wrapper, later institutional bookplate inside front. Tanning and foxing. Good, in original condition.

This is the second edition, with three added pages containing details of his execution, published after his hanging.

        New Boke about Shakespeare and Straford Upon Avon

      London: Printed for Private Circulation 1850 - London: Privately Printed, 1850. First Edition. First Impression Limited Edition Number 13 of 75 copies - see photo. Whilst it is stated that the paper is ‘thin’ it is normal thickness paper. pp. 96 with folding frontispiece of Shakespeare's marriage bond. Bound in the original blind stamped buckram with faded gilt titles on the spine. Spine is frayed to the top and bottom with a tear to the cloth to the top of the spine, corners bumped, Shakespeare's Will at the rear. Spotting to the pages otherwise good. James Orchard Halliwell-Phillipps (21 June 1820 – 3 January 1889) was an English Shakespearean scholar. The son of Thomas Halliwell, he was born in London and was educated privately and at Jesus College, Cambridge. He devoted himself to antiquarian research, particularly into early English literature. In 1839 he edited Sir John Mandeville's Travels; in 1842 published an Account of the European manuscripts in the Chetham Library, besides a newly discovered metrical romance of the 18th century (Torrent of Portugal). He became best known, however, as a Shakespearean editor and collector. In 1848 he brought out his Life of Shakespeare, illustrated by John Thomas Blight (1835 - 1911), which passed through several editions; in 1853-1865 a sumptuous edition, limited to 150 copies, of Shakespeare in folio, with full critical notes; in 1863 a Calendar of the Records at Stratford-on-Awn; in 1864 a History of New Place. After 1870 he entirely gave up textual criticism, and devoted his attention to elucidating the particulars of Shakespeare's life. He collated all the available facts and documents in relation to it, and exhausted the information to be found in local records in his Outlines of the Life of Shakespeare. He was mainly instrumental in the purchase of New Place for the corporation of Stratford-on-Avon, and in the formation there of the Shakespeare museum. His publications in all numbered more than sixty volumes. He assumed the name of Phillipps in 1872, under the will of the grandfather of his first wife, a daughter of Sir Thomas Phillipps the antiquary. He took an active interest in the Camden Society, the Percy Society and the Shakespeare Society, for which he edited many early English and Elizabethan works. From 1845 Halliwell was excluded from the library of the British Museum on account of the suspicion attaching to his possession of some manuscripts which had been removed from the library of Trinity College, Cambridge. He published privately an explanation of the matter in 1845. His house, Hollingbury Copse, near Brighton, was full of rare and curious works, and he generously gave many of them to Chetham's Library, Manchester, to the Morrab Library of Penzance, to the Smithsonian Institution, and to the library of the University of Edinburgh.   Condition Report Externally Spine – fair to good condition – gilt titles to a faded and frayed (at ends) spine, chipped and or frayed at the spine ends with some loss.

        [Photo Album]: Philadelphia Victorian Family Album

      [Philadelphia]: Webb S. Keller, 1850. Very Good. Small quarto measuring 7.5" x 10". Gilt edges. A collection of 39 black and white or sepia toned photographs most measuring about 4" x 6". Very good, lacking the boards and spine with near fine photographs. A photo album of mounted oval portraits from the mid 1800s of a family from the Philadelphia area. There are few captions except beneath two pictures of young girls labeling them as Josephine and May Hencken and one below the picture of a child that reads, Elias Joseph Hencken Freeland. The photographs are all of well-dressed Victorian era Americans both men and women as well as children and adults. Three of the photos are laid in: one of an older woman reading on a porch, another is a portrait of a man, and the final is a young soldier in the uniform of the U.S. Cavalry. It would seem that the generation of Freelands represented in this album migrated to Philadelphia and New Jersey from the town of Freeland, Pennsylvania after a family homestead, dubbed Fort Freeland, was destroyed in a battle with Native Americans in 1778, causing something of a generational migration east.

        The Scarlet Letter, A Romance

      Boston: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, 1850 Boston: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, 1850. First edition, first printing. Publisher's brown T cloth decoratively stamped in blind to front board and lettered in gilt to spine, cream endpapers, publisher's ads inserted at front. A very good copy with some wear and rubbing to spine, slightly cocked, and page edges lightly toned, with expert repairs to spine. Overall very pleasing in the original publisher's binding. Housed in a custom slipcase with folding chemise. BAL 7600. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. The Scarlet Letter is set in the author's hometown of Salem, Massachusetts, in the early 17th century, just before the onset of the infamous Salem witch trials. The novel features Hester Prynne, an adulteress facing the shame and judgment of her Puritan community. In addition to officially sanctioned public humiliation, Prynne must wear a scarlet "A" pinned to her chest as a symbol of her transgression. After being released from prison, Prynne is exiled from her church and community, and she is forced to raise her daughter, the product of her adulterous relationship, and continue her work of helping the poor in solitude. Through the juxtaposition of Prynne's social condemnation and her charitable endeavors, Hawthorne explores the themes of guilt, sin, and Puritanism. Interestingly, The Scarlet Letter was published before Hawthorne achieved literary success, as indicated by his inclusion of his introductory essay "The Custom-House," in which the author chronicles his years working in Salem prior to writing The Scarlet Letter. This essay was met with harsh criticism from his local community, prompting the inclusion of a preface in subsequent editions in which Hawthorne defends "The Custom-House," which he says "could not have been done in a better or a kindlier spirit, nor, so far as his abilities availed, with a livelier effect of truth." Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.
