      Small 8vo. Lvs 14; 7; 11. With colour woodcut illustrations throughout. As issued with double folded lvs bound in fukuro-toji style in original pictorial paper wrappers printed in colour, silk strings. A complete set of the Aino Fairy Tales translated by Chamberlain and illustrated with charming and descriptive pictures by Japanese artists. Basil Hall Chamberlain (1850-1935), professor of Japanese at the Tokyo Imperial University, lived among the Ainos in Northern Hokkaido in the mid 1880's. He was particulary interested in their folklore which he thought often explained certain natural phenomenon at a very early stage. "The Ainos are people who live in an island called Yezo. The men all have long black beards, and they spend their time in hunting and fishing. They are very poor and very ignorant; yet even these poor people love their children. Often of an evening, when they all sit around the fire together before going to bed, the mothers tell their little ones pretty fairy-tales and fables. I have listened to some of these, and am now going to tell them to you in English, because they are new stories, which you have never heard before" (Preface). A pristine copy of this very rare set of Aino fables, even individually copies are uncommon on the market. Cordier BJ 641. Nipponalia 2279 (no.1)

      [American, 1850. Fifteen watercolors total, heightened with gum arabic, ranging in size from 2 x 2 inches, to 7 x 6 inches. The illustrations are bordered either by lace or gilt and affixed to colored paper, or are done on a sheet with a lithographic border. Interleaved with blank colored pages, some of them with stamped or lithographic borders. Quarto. Original morocco album, elaborately stamped in blind and gilt, expertly rebacked in matching style, a.e.g. A bit of light rubbing to extremities of boards, corners worn. Internally clean, with the colors very bright. Near fine. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase and chemise. A lovely album of quite accomplished amateur watercolors depicting plants, flowers, fruit, and a bird. The style of the album binding is American, as are some of the tree leaves illustrated, but neither the album nor any of the illustrations are signed. It is evidently the work of a talented amateur, skilled in the use of watercolors. Each illustration has been carefully highlighted with gum arabic in order to heighten certain colors or shades. Among the images is a bouquet of autumnal oak leaves, a branch of plums, a group of cherries, a rose, pansies, and several other plants and flowers. One of the largest and most striking illustrations is of a bird perched upon a leafy branch with blue coloring on its head and back, brown feathers at the tips of its wings, and a white belly. A very appealing example of the mid-Victorian fashion for creating personal albums of artistic renderings of nature.

Mit 2 Schwarzweiß-Frontispices, 2 gestochenen Titeln, 14 weiteren Schwarzweiß-Illustrationen unter Hemdchen und 1 Landkarte im Anhang zu Band 1. 2 volumes (= complete) in first edition and scarce original gilted cloth binding. - Gordon-Cumming (1820–1866) was a Scottish traveller and sportsman, who was known as the "lion hunter". During his stay in the East he laid the foundation of his collection of hunting trophies and specimens of natural history. Later he set out with an ox wagon and a few native followers for the interior of Africa and hunted chiefly in Bechuanaland and the valley of the Limpopo River. The story of his exploits is very vividly told in this opus, which was received at first with incredulity by stay-at-home critics. But David Livingstone wrote: 'I have no hesitation in saying that Mr. Cumming's book conveys a truthful idea of South African hunting' (Missionary Travels, chap. vii.). His collection of hunting trophies was exhibited in London in 1851 at the Great Exhibition and was afterwards, known as "The South Africa Museum", exhibited in various parts of the United Kingdom.

        Expedition der Sloop Blagonamjerenny." [in] Archiv für die wissenschaftliche Kunde von Russland.

      Reimer, Berlin 1850 - Octavo pamphlet, folding plate, comprising a single issue of the journal, the Gillsen account on pp. 272-94; an unopened copy in the original printed lime-green wrappers. The first detailed abstract of the Vasil'ev/Shishmarev voyage published outside Russia, based on the extremely rare Russian original published two years previous in 1849. The companion expedition of Bellingshausen is now well-known for the dearth of contemporary published material, and this Arctic voyage was not served any better.In 1819 the Russian Admiralty undertook a double polar expedition under Bellingshausen/Lazarev (Antarctic) and Vasil'ev/Shishmarev (Arctic). The sloop Otkrytie (Discovery) was under the command of M.N. Vasil'ev, while the sloop Blagonamerennyi (Good Intent) was under the command of G.S. Shishmarew. Leaving Kronstadt in 1819 the expedition reached Port Jackson via Rio de Janeiro and the Cape of Good Hope. The two ships sailed north to Kamchatka, mapping Nukufetau Atoll en route, and naming the "Inseln des Blagonamerennyi". The ships spent some time on both shores of the Bering Sea, and particularly explored Otkrytie Island (Nunivak). Heavy pack ice beyond the Bering Strait stopped the expedition from their planned work in the deeper reaches of the Chukchi Sea. No official report was published, and the only eyewitness account from either ship was written by the midshipman of the Blagonamerennyi, Karl Karlovitch Gillsen, and published in the St. Petersburg journal Otechestvennyie Zapiski in 1849.This German translation of Gillsen's account is the first European translation of a work that was not translated into English until 1983 (Rhea Josphson, Ethnohistory in the Arctic). The title translates as "Expedition of the Sloop Blagonamjerenny to explore the Asiatic and American shores beyond the Bering-Strait in the years 1819 to 1822", and the work made the 1849 St. Petersburg publication available for the first time to a wider European audience.On the Russian expeditions see: Barratt, The Russians and Australia, pp. 87ff & Russia in Pacific Waters, pp. 201-2; Howgego II, R34, T3.

        The Prelude,

      London: Edward Moxon,, 1850. Or, Growth of a Poet's Mind; an autobiographical poem. Octavo (215 x 136 mm). Contemporary green morocco for Sotheran & Co., flat bands gilt to spine forming compartments richly gilt with floral sprays, title to second and date to foot gilt, concentric gilt frames to covers incorporating an attractive floral roll forming a central panel lobed with elaborate floral vignettes gilt, all edges gilt, inner dentelles gilt, comb-marbled endpapers. Two 20th-century ownership inscriptions to first blank. Extremities lightly rubbed. An excellent copy in a fine binding. First edition of Wordsworth's autobiographical testament, begun during otherwise unfruitful visit to Germany with Coleridge in the winter of 1798 but only published after his death. "As he chronicled his life up to 1798 Wordsworth re-examined his political, religious, and aesthetic convictions and expanded the poem's scope so majestically that when it was completed in 1805 it had grown from two to thirteen books. It is Wordsworth's masterpiece, but as it was conceived throughout as a prelude to a greater work, The Recluse, so long as Wordsworth remained committed to the project for the philosophical poem, the autobiographical one had to remain unpublished. It was Wordsworth's widow and executors in 1850 who called it The Prelude. In Wordsworth's lifetime it was always known as 'The Poem to Coleridge' or 'Growth of a Poet's Mind'" (ODNB).

        Método curativo racional para el cholera morbus asiático, por Guillermo Ward Duck.

      Mexico: Tipo. de R. Rafael 8vo. 16 pp.. 1850 The author of this very scarce pamphlet identifies himself as a retired medical doctor who at the time of its writing was about to leave for England. He tells how to diagnose cholera, explains his "rational" method for curing it (based on methods used successfully in England, the United States, and parts of Europe), and gives suggestions for easing recuperation. At the end of the work he gives the composition of the various medicines and tonics he prescribes, because "detest[o] por mi parte el monopolio que algunos han hecho de sus medicamentos a fin de lucrar a costa de la humanidad doliente." Cholera became a serious problem in Mexico City and in several other places in the country in the wake of the Mexican–American War. Dr. Duck says of his reasons for writing this opusculum of medical advice, "solo me ha impulsado el deseo que tengo de auxiliar a una Nacion que me es querida." Very rare. Fine condition; sewn in original cream-colored printed wrappers with elaborate, ornamental borders on both covers. Wrappers very lightly soiled; a clean, untattered copy.

        The Scarlet Letter.

      Boston: Ticknor, Reed and Fields, 1850. First edition, with 4 pages publisher's advertisements inserted between preliminary blanks, dated March 1, 1850. Octavo, original brown cloth. One of only 2500 copies printed. A very good example with to the extremities, rebacked with some rubbing to the bottom of the cloth and short splits along front joint. "The most memorable and original aspect of The Scarlet Letter lies in Hawthorne's portrait of Hester Prynne, who has been described as "the first true heroine of American fiction", a woman whose experience evokes the biblical fate of Eve. Hawthorne's achievement is to make her passion noble, her defiance heartbreaking and her frailty inspiring. She becomes the archetype of the free-thinking American woman grappling with herself and her sexuality in a cold, patriarchal society" (The Guardian). The first edition of The Scarlet Letter sold out in ten days and "made Hawthorne's fame, changed his fortune and gave to our literature its first symbolic novel a year before the appearance of Melville's Moby-Dick" (Bradley).

Come accadeva infatti anche in altri album di questo tipo, e' probabile che edizioni precedenti o successive si arricchissero o perdessero alcune tavole.

        Consequences of a Successfull French Invasion..

      London: J. Gillray, nd., c., 1850. Engraving, 370 x 270 mm., handcoloured as issued; framed. A famous, satirical look at the decision of the English parliament to create a penal settlement at Botany Bay, in contrast to the atmosphere of reform and concern with civil liberties in the newly created republic of France and in the American colonies. This cartoon was first published in 1798; it was reissued in the mid nineteenth century as offered here.James Gillray turns the tables on the politicians of the House of Commons responsible for the Botany Bay decision: French revolutionaries led by Napoleon storm the parliament gagging the Speaker and placing all the Members in chains and dressing them in the garb of convicts. All the symbols of House are destroyed: the mace is smashed, the statutes discarded on the floor, and below the Speaker's chair are the words, "The House is adjourned to Botany Bay".This is the significantly later impression of the print, first issued at the close of the eighteenth century, circa 1798.

        Buffon en Estampes. Types du règne animal. Planches & illustrations, 2 Bände, Paris o. J. (um 1850)

      Paris, Ledot Ainé, um 1850. Vollständiges Werk in zwei Bänden. Grüner sowie roter Original-Ganzleinenband im Querformat 36 x 26,5 cm. Mit goldgeprägten Rücken- und Deckeltiteln sowie goldgeprägter Deckelillustration (liegender Löwe). Dreiseitiger Goldschnitt. Farbige Vorsätze. Beide Bände mit zusammen 48 großformatigen gestochenen Tafeln, die zumeist jeweils zwei Tierdarstellungen enthalten, und jeweils zugehörigen Textseiten. Édouard Traviès (1809 - 1870) kann als einer der brillantesten Tierzeichner und -illustratoren des 19. Jahrhunderts gelten. Seine Arbeiten (häufig Vögel und Insekten, aber auch andere Tiere), die er zwischen 1831 und 1866 regelmäßig im Pariser Salon ausstellte, zeigen eine bis dahin kaum erreichte Präzision und Ausdruckskraft, die auch heute noch begeistert. Original-Zeichnungen und -Aquarelle des Künstlers sind im internationalen Auktionshandel begehrt. Druckwerke bzw. Sammelwerke Traviès` - wie das hier vorliegende - sind im Original heute kaum noch erhältlich. Beide Bände in gutem Zustand: Bei Band 1 Kapitale etwas ausgefranst, oben mit leichten Anrissen, sonst sehr sauber erhalten. Bei Band 2 wurde der Rücken unter Verwendung des Original-Rückenschildes fachmännisch erneuert. Diese Arbeit ist sehr gut ausgeführt und fällt kaum ins Auge. Vorderdeckel etwas berieben und geringfügig fleckig sowie mit erkennbarem Abdruck eines runden Gegenstandes. Die Tafeln partiell geringfügig fleckig, sonst gut erhalten und ohne Läsionen. Schönes Exemplar dieses brillant gestaltetes Werkes der Tier-Illustration.

      - In tadellosem Zustand. Bei Bestellungen gegen offene Rechnung bitte Telefonnummer angeben. Danke! Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 1200 Hugo Charlemont, österreichischer Maler (* 18. März 1850 in Jamnitz, Mähren; † 18. April 1939 in Wien) entstammte einer Künstlerfamilie. Er war der Sohn des Miniaturmalers Matthias Adolf Charlemont und der Bruder der Maler Eduard Charlemont (1848–1906) und Theodor Charlemont (1859–1938). Auch Hugos Tochter Lilly Charlemont war Künstlerin. Er studierte ab 1873 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste und war Schüler von Eduard von Lichtenfels. Bei Arthur William Unger erlernte er Drucktechnik und die Kunst der Radierung. Später bildete er sich bei seinem Bruder Eduard und bei Hans Makart künstlerisch weiter. Charlemont machte einige Studienreisen in die Niederlande und hielt sich mehrere Jahre in Venedig auf. Hugo Charlemont ist das Vorbild des Malers van Helmond in Robert Musils Roman Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften. Alice Charlemont, die ältere Tochter Hugo Charlemonts, kehrt im Roman als Clarisse wieder. Bei seinen Zeitgenossen galt Hugo Charlemont als vielseitiges Talent. Er widmete sich den verschiedensten Bildthemen, wie der Landschafts-, Stillleben-, Tier-, Genre- oder Porträtmalerei. Neben Ölbildern schuf er auch zahlreiche Aquarelle und Gouachen. Am bemerkenswertesten erscheinen seine Landschaften, die in einem impressionistischen Stil gehalten sind. Von den Neuerungen der Modernen Kunst ließ sich Charlemont allerdings nicht beeindrucken; er blieb auch im 20. Jahrhundert seinem Stil treu. (Quelle: Wikipedia, 11. 6. 2012) Vgl. Thieme-Becker, ect.

        The Personal History of David Copperfield

      London: Bradbury & Evans., 1850. Octavo (211 x 127 mm). Late 19th-century green half morocco by Waters of Newcastle (with his gilt stamp on the turn-in), richly gilt spine, marbled sides, top edges gilt, prettily gilt turn-ins. Etched pictorial title page, frontispiece and 38 etched plates after "Phiz" (Hablot Knight Browne). Customary browning to the plates, bound without the half-title but with the errata leaf. A very attractive copy. First edition. David Copperfield was Dickens's own personal favourite among his books; its critical reception was universally favourable and it was generally considered to be his masterpiece. Peter Ackroyd comments on the book's tone of "plangent lyricism" (Dickens, 1990, p. 606).

        GOLD SCALE In ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER'S WOODEN CASE, Circa 1850. E. Fabreguettes Fils & Morra. William Street, 73. New York

      E. Fabreguettes Fils & Morra (n. d.), New York - Suspension gold scale made of brass, with troy and grain weights. Troy weights nested, ranging from 1/16 to 4 oz; grain weights include 2, 6, and 10. Case: 1-11/16" x 6-11/16" x 3-1/8". Scale, when hanging: ~8-1/4" x 7-1/8", brass balances 2-1/2" in diameter. In 1850, the New York firm of E. Fabreguettes, Fils & Morra, importers of French fancy goods, attempted to capitalize on the California Gold Rush by adding gold scales to their wares. Notices in several of the city's papers in late October and early November of that year, including the Monday, November 4th edition of The Evening Post, advertised the following: "GOLD SCALES. || The subscribers offer for sale the best and most approved pattern of French Standard Gold Scales, adjusted exactly to the United States Mint Standard, of every size and weight. || These scales are so made that they take but very little compass when packed, and are much more neatly and conveniently finished, than either the English, German, or American article. As we have all that are made of this pattern, parties having orders for shipment to California, are solicited to examine them before purchasing elsewhere. Also for sale, a variety of French fancy goods, accordeons [sic], &c. || E. Fabreguettes, Fils & Morra, 73 William Street, (up stairs.)."E. Fabreguettes, Fils & Morra was located at 61 Maiden Lane until at least 1847, moving to their William Street address in 1848 or 1849. No later advertisements for these scales appear to have been issued in New York newspapers, leading us to conjecture that the firm's venture into the gold mining market was perhaps not particularly successful. It is, of course, impossible to say with any certainty if this particular scale was originally used during the Gold Rush, though this one here offered was purchased in California, giving rise to possibility it may very well have been. In either case, a nice artifact from the California Gold Rush era. Light general wear to case and weights, brass balances a bit tarnished. Only contains the three grain weights, so perhaps others missing? VG overall. Wooden case with a hinged lid and hook clasps, seller's label to inside of lid. Interior has carved compartments for the brass scale and weights, including a small compartment for grain weights with a hinged lid

      The paper label to the box is in English, but the eight cards are numbered in German, suggesting that the toy originated from there, circa 1850 at a guess, but maybe earlier. Wooden box with a sliding lid bearing a paper label of instructions; the box containing fifteen variously shaped wooden blocks, reminiscent of a Tangram puzzle; loosely laid in are eight coloured cards bearing examples of architectural models that can be constructed. Box a little worn; label dust-soiled; else a very good example of a rare educational toy.

It is considered to be one of the most important bookbinding companies of the 20th century, famous for its luxurious jeweled bindings that used real gold and precious stones in their book covers.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) was an American poet and educator whose works include "Paul Revere's Ride", The Song of Hiawatha, and Evangeline. He was also the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, and was one of the five Fireside Poets. The Seaside and the Fireside is a collection of Poems with The Building of the Ship as the leading piece. The form of this poem was clearly suggested by Friedrich Schiller's Song of the Bell which has more than once served poets as a model.BAL, 12099.
