        Les Toqués Du Jour

      Paris: Arnauld De Vresse, 1850. Exceedingly ScarceHighly Amusing Hand-Colored Caricatures Showing "The Crazy's of the Day"[CHAM, illustrator, pseud. of Charles Amédée de Noé].

Publisher's brown ribbed cloth, bordered in blind, front cover lettered in gilt. Expertly rebacked to style at an early date. Inner hinges cracked but sound, corners very slightly rubbed. A near fine copy of this exceedingly scarce album.A highly amusing collection of lithographs by Cham (1819-1879) satirizing the varieties of Les Toqués Du Jour(The Crazy's of the Day). Of Charles Amédée de Noé, "known as Cham (that is, Ham, the son of Noah)…it was said that he had 'an idea a day' for Le charivari. A good proportion of his thousands of lithographs were gathered into albums. His contributions to the Album du siège (173), in which Daumier was his collaborator, are typical of his work" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, pp. 155-156).Exceedingly scarce. No copies found in WorldCat or KVK, and apparently no copies have appeared at auction, certainly during the past thirty-five years.

        Botanical manuscript with pencil-drawings of plants.

      19th century French manuscript with 15 very accurate pencil-drawings with their descriptions in a very neat handwriting. No place, no publisher (ca. 1850?). Small folio (33 x 25.5 cm). Half calf over pebbled boards with gilt borders, embossed initials "C. P" on front board, spine with gilt floral pattern and title "Botanique". All edges gilt.= The book deals with such plants as le Genevrier, Geranion, Scabieuse, Renouée, Phalaugere, etc., each beautifully and delicately drawn in pencil on large sheets with wide margins. All plates are tissue-guarded, and accompanied by a beautifully handwritten text leaf containing the taxonomy of the corresponding class and family, as well as descriptions of the family and related families. The source of these descriptions and illustrations is not known. It could well be an original manuscript meant for publication. Some leaf versos have the pencilled name C. Paradis in the top left corner. This matches the initials on the front board. The binding is professionally done by the Paris-based firm Chézaud & Braulart, "55 Rue de la Verrerie" (their small label on the front free endpaper verso). Boards with some light scuffing, gilt on monogram much rubbed, some light spotting to tissue guards, otherwise a clean and fine item, with drawings of the highest quality.

        Album with a Collection of Scarce Satirical Pellerin Broadsides, Neatly Broken into Four Strips Each, from the Mid-19th Century.

      Épinal: Imprimerie de Pellerin, possibly others, 1850s. First Edition presumed of individual pieces. Hardcover. Very Good. Delightful and whimsical send-up primarily of military life, the Crimean War, but also a whimsical depiction of acrobats and some other subjects. This album was compiled more or less contemporaneously with the issuance of them, as noted in a handwritten note mounted onto the first leaf's verso. Oblong, 18 by 44 cm. 48 hand-colored mounted panels, often highlighted with extra gilt, coming from twelve Pellerin broadsides. The original broadsides each had four lines, and thus what we have here is a dozen complete broadsides, with the presentation modified for this album. The broadside strips are 11 by 33 cm, and they are mounted on both sides of the blue leaves. Pellerin issued these kind of strips in three formats: black and white, hand-colored, and hand-colored with extra gilt, the third being the most expensive and desirable. The title of the broadsides are "A Propos des Russes", “Scènes Diverse du Siège de Sébastopol”, No. 1 and No. 3, “Messieurs les Cosaques”, “Les Bourgeois de Sébastopol”, “Les Français dans Sébastopol”, “L'Avenir des Russes”, “Les Distractions Militaires”, “La Guerre de Crimée”, “Les Inventeurs et les Inventions”, “Le Juif-Errant et les Russes”, and “Les Saltimbanques. The Tumblers”. Scarce, with the BNF not having most of the broadsides, according to its catalogue, Gallica. (Among those we couldn't locate at the BNF were "A Props des Russes", "L'Avenir des Russes", "Le Juif-Errant", "Les Bourgeois de Sebastopol," "Les Inventeurs", "Scenes Diverses . . . " and "Les Distractions Militaires". The hand-written note mentioned above is in French, dated 1947, and is from a father to his son. The father speaks of Pellerin and how such broadsides were issued during his own childhood, which spanned from 1872 to 1890. He also speaks to their scarcity, especially of the gilt-infused ones, and how much they cost back in the day. Moderate wear to the binding.

        The Family Bible, With the Self-Interpreting and Explanatory Notes, and Marginal References of the Late Rev. John Brown, Minister of the Gospel, Haddington.

      London John Kendrick 1850 - Thick 4to. (25 x 18 x 8 cm), 1373pp., engraved frontispiece of 'Rebekah At The Well' and three further plates, engraved armorial title (lightly offset from tissue-guard), text in double-columns, a few minor spots to first few pages, near- contemporary crushed morocco, covers with broad gilt panels, spine richly gilt, raised bands, all edges gilt, an excellent example. A most imposing large format family bible in an excellent state of preservation. John Brown (1754-1832), minister and theologian was of humble origins and little formal education, and worked as a shepherd in his early years. It was perhaps this background that led him to produce a well annotated bible intended to make it accessible to ordinary men and women: "The Self-Interpreting Bible remained in print until the twentieth century, in much revised form. Brown transferred lists, tables, and other such aids from his dictionary. The Bible was a far more substantial work, which did not prevent its becoming, as Robert Burns bore out, as familiar in Presbyterian households as John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and Thomas Boston's Human Nature in its Fourfold State. Brown's text was furnished with a battery of cross-references, minor marginal notes, short introductions to each book, a summary of contents at the head of each chapter, 'reflections' on each chapter—in effect applying its message to readers—and explanatory footnotes. A lengthy introduction deals with the Bible's authority and inspiration, its interpretation, and biblical history from creation. All were intended, as the title made clear, to make the Bible accessible to the humblest reader, unlike much biblical scholarship today" (ODNB). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Veduta prospettica di Venezia ("panorama")

      Venezia: Giuseppe Kier, S.d. (ma circa 1850) - Litografia a due colori (nero su fondo grigio) di mm 1890 x 290. Foglio in perfette condizioni. L'immagine illustra, con veduta grandangolare di 200°, la città di Venezia dall'Isola di San Giorgio fino alla fine della Riva degli Schiavoni, con una ricchissima animazione di varie imbarcazione nel Bacino di San Marco. Questo tipo di veduta prospettica circolare riscosse una notevolissima fortuna all'epoca, e venne ricopiata da diversi autori. E' probabile che si tratti della veduta che doveva essere data in omaggio a qualche cliente particolare con l'opera "Venezia e le sue Lagune" stampato nel 1847 in occasione della nona Riunione degli Scienziati Italiani. 19mo secolo
