        The Personal History and Experience of DAVID COPPERFIELD the Younger

      1850. New-York: W. F. Burgess, [1850]. Without the original wrappers. First American Edition. Both John Wiley / G. P. Putnam of New York and Lea & Blanchard of Philadelphia issued this tale in monthly serial parts during 1849 and 1850, so those two may be considered the first American editions to be partly published; however, this Burgess edition, cheaply produced and originally bound in simple wrappers, was the first complete American edition (though no date appears on the title page, the date 1850 did appear on the (absent) front wrapper). It consists of 264 pages of text (though it begins on page 19); this copy has seven wood-engravings in addition to the preliminary title page portrait of Dickens -- eight in all.~Originally bound in yellow wrappers, this copy lacks those wrappers and thus begins with the illustrated title page. Except for the lack of wrappers it is a very good copy, with the usual occasional foxing. Podeschi (Yale) A126; not in Carr (UTexas); not cited by Wilkins.

        Clipped Signature and Inscription

      1850. unbound. 1.75 x 3 inches, no place, no date, circa 1850. Rare full signature removed from the dedication page of a book which he signed to fellow chess player William G. Stearns, in full: "Elijah Williams to his friend William G. Stearns." Evenly toned and boldly written in iron gall brown ink. Tiny damp-stain on the left edge, far from the inscription. Very good(-) condition. Eminent British chess player of the mid-19th century considered one of the greatest of all time. He was the very first Grand Master and the first President of the prestigious Clifton Chess Club. Astonishingly, his career preceded the use of the time clock, and it was reported that he would take up to 2 1/2 hours for a single move. In the Grand Master Tournament of 1851, when a 20-minute-per-turn time limit was adopted (the standard that is used today), Williams won every match he played against the best players of Europe. Bobby Fischer, in an interview with Time Magazine, credited Williams' use of dynamic openings as the biggest influence on his career. Williams died of Cholera at the age 44.

        Chart of the Arctic Regions from the Admiralty Surveys

      London: James Wyld, [c. 1850].. Second edition. Map diameter 38.5 cm, overall dimensions 41 x 45 cm. An attractive folding circular projection of the Arctic, original colour in outline, mounted on linen, the map folds between original brown diced cloth, with the publisher's printed title label to the upper board and their printed advertisement to the inner cover, an old tracing of Baffin Bay and the surrounding region taken from another map on a larger scale on a separate sheet is loosely enclosed. The covers a little marked and discoloured, but sound, save for some mild offsetting, the map is in very good condition. The map is dedicated to Lady Franklin, whose husband Sir John had disappeared whilst exploring the Arctic in 1845. It is now assumed that he died in early 1847, but at the time many people assumed he was still alive and Lady Franklin's campaign to send search parties to find him and his crew received widespread coverage nationally and internationally. This edition of the map highlights the discoveries of various expeditions, namely Ross, Parry, Franklin & Richardson, Beechey, Back, Dease & Samson, Rae and Kellett, with a colour coded key to the lower right corner. An uncommon map, a handful of copies of various editions are listed on Copac spread between the British Library, the National Library of Scotland and Oxford.

        The Natural History of Birds

      Concord: New Hampshire, Merrill, circa, 1850. Duodecimo, with twelve wood-engravings; original pictorial wrappers, crudely sewn at spine, some tears at gutter and at foot of a couple of leaves, dusted, some foxing and stains, presentation inscription from a teacher to a student on verso of cover. Rare American children's natural history primer, including a lyrebird. Each of the ten birds is fully described and illustrated with naïve word blocks. "The Lyre Bird of New Holland" is pictured with a description of its appearance, habits and song, "This singular bird lives almost wholly on the ground, like our common poultry… The inhabitants of New Holland even call it the mountain pheasant. Its voice is far more melodious than either the bird of paradise or any domestic fowls…". The heading on the front wrapper reads "Museum of Natural History", indicating that it was evidently part of a series by this publisher. Early ephemeral books for children rarely survive, and this one with an Australian reference is not known to Ferguson.

      No place or date but London c.1850 - Large (22 x 18 inches), stipple engraving magnificently PRINTED IN COLOURS. This is probably a proof as the artist's and engraver's names have not been added to the plate as yet and the quality is exceptional. One small marginal tear repaired, not affecting the image and the margins are a little browned but quite acceptable. Not framed or mounted at present as I hope to find an antique 'birds eye' maple to complete the authentic period piece. This is the rare large size version of this well known image in the ultimate de luxe version, printed in colours (not a later uncoloured version) which is very scarce. Such was the difficulty of this method of colour printing only small numbers were issued. PRINTS/MAPS HOPS PRINTS/MAPS

        Album Artistique de la Reine Hortense. Livre D'Art de la Reine Hortense. Une Visite a Augsburg, Esquisse Biographique. Lettres, Dessins, et Musique

      Typographie Plon Freres, Heugel & Cie., Paris - Circa 1850 to1860. Oblong, 27.5 by 38 cm, or 10.5 by 15 inches. 23, [67] pp. Hortense was the step-daughter of Napoleon (she was the daughter of Josephine). She was married off to Napoleon's brother, Louis, who was made the king of Holland during the years 1806 to 1810. Significantly for this particular production, Hortense was the mother of Louis Napoleon, also known as Napoleon III, who at the time this opulent work was published, was the ruler of France, which thus explains the opulent commemoration of her here, as evident in the use of gold in its printing! Hortense was, in fact, of an artistic bent, and so contained herein are examples of her painting and musical compositions. There are six plates engraved by F. Sorrieu after paintings by Hortense and 24 pages of musical score by her (lyrics by the Comte de la Garde). Includes letters written by Hortense and a biography by Hippolyte Prevost. The gorgeous chromolithographs, seven in all, were done by Lemercier. Leather is rubbed and scuffed. Foxing, heavy in a few places, generally because of the card or paper.

"In 1849 Egerström enlisted as a company officer in the Swedish army, but three years later, after a disagreement, he went to England to offer his services to the British army. When his application was rejected he set out for India in the hope of joining the British forces in the Burmese War. He arrived in Calcutta in October 1852, only to find that his services were not required there either, so instead he proceeded to North America, arriving at Boston early in 1853. From Boston he sailed to San Francisco via Cape Horn to seek his fortune in the goldfields. In California he tried gold digging, farming, and gold digging again, but reaped little reward for his labours'' (Howgego).In very good condition. Binding rubbed and spine faded. Rare narrative of travels in South America, California, the Hawaiian Islands, and Australia.
