        THE POOR ARTIST; OR, SEVEN EYE-SIGHTS AND ONE OBJECT. "SCIENCE IN FABLE."

      London: John Van Voorst, Paternoster Row, 1850.. Small octavo, pp. [1-2] [i-iii] iv [v] vi-ix [x] [1] 2-234, frontispiece, nineteenth-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine panel tooled in gold, black leather title piece. First edition. An important work of proto-science fiction that illustrates human visual perception. Various creatures, a bee, an ant, a spider, a robin, and others, ask a penniless artist to paint a "new thing" each has seen, based on its own perception of the object. The artist does so and the object turns out to be a lost sovereign that he uses to hold a one-man show which is a huge success. This is the book famously reviewed by William Watson in his A LITTLE EARNEST BOOK ON A GREAT OLD SUBJECT; OR CHAPTERS ON POETRY AND POETS, published in 1851 which includes the first use of the phrase "science fiction." Wilson opens his review of Horne's book as follows: "Fiction has lately been chosen as a means of familiarizing science in one single case only [the Horne book] ... We hope it will not be long before we may have other works of Science-Fiction, as we believe such books likely to fulfill a good purpose, and create an interest, where, unhappily, science alone might fail." "A very unusual book, reasonably successful in achieving its aims, and certainly a document in the history of SF worthy of at least a footnote by academia." - Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume III, p. 8. See Aldiss and Wingrove, TRILLION YEAR SPREE, p. 461. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978), Reginald (1979; 1992), or Suvin (1983). Ex-Cambridge, England, "Union Society" library with their bookplate affixed to the front paste-down, and their circular ownership stamp on the title page and several text pages. Binding quite rubbed but sound, internally tight and clean, a very good copy overall. COPAC reports 7 copies. OCLC reports no copies of this edition. A rare book. (#156280)

        (Impressively Huge Wall Bill of Schreyer's Travelling Menagerie). J. Schreyer‘s Menagerie. Roßplatz, gegenüber dem Affentheater. A Huge Wall Bill advertising for the Travelling Menagerie.

      Leipzig, Vereins-Buchdruckerei, s.d., but around 1850.. Imperial folio (36 x 23.5 inches). With a woodcut illustration (11 x 17 inches) in upper half, showing the menageur sourrounded by the main attractions of the menagerie (lion, hyaena, gepard and a cougar around his neck!). Printed on very fragile paper, some marginal wears professionally restored. Lower right corner with a light brown spot, affecting the wood cut bordure, but all together in very good condition for an ephemeral printing product, especially with respect to its size and the type of paper applied for printing. Very uncommon, impressiv wall bill, which I could not find another copy of in libraries worldwide. – The menagerie of J. Schreyer (cf. Wurzbach XXXI, 305) was founded in the year of his/her father Heinrich Schreyer's death (1793-1847), who was an animal trader and menageur, native to Lemberg in Galicia (today Lwiw in Ukraine). The inital ‘J.' most likely stands for his widow, who continued with the menagerie when Heinrich died from typhoid fever shortly after his arrival to Vienna, where the family opened their ‘monkeytheatre' (germ.: Affentheater). The wall bill advertises their travelling menagerie, which consisted mainly of big cats, involving a pair of lions from the Barbary, a black Java leopard (panther), a ‘cruel, spotted hyena from the Cape of God Hope‘ and an African carical (i.e. karakal, a desert lynx). All those animals were tamed and would become part of a spectacular show as illustrated in the wood cut, including their feeding from the mouth of the tamer! Beside these also a marmoset together with its 8 days old child would be on display, as well as several further monkeys and a collection of birds.

        PHOTOGENIC MANIPULATION: PART II. CONTAINING THE THEORY AND PLAIN INSTRUCTIONS IN THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY, OR THE PRODUCTION OF PICTURES THROUGH THE AGENCY OF LIGHT. DAGUERREOTYPE

      George Knight and Sons, London 1850 - 16mo., 60 pp., illustrations in text, 4 pp. adverts. Original printed paper wrappers. The front wrapper bears the contemporary signature of the original owner and is moderately soiled, with wear and partial separation at the spine. The lower tips of several text leaves are creased. A near very good example, housed in a newly made cloth with paper labels pamphlet case. Initially written by George Thomas Fisher, Jr., and published in 1843 by George Knight in two parts, the first concerned with the paper process, the second with the daguerreian; both with greatly reduced texts. By 1845, the two parts were separated and published independently, and together. In 1848, after Fisher's death, Robert J. Bingham is listed as the author, and the manuals were expanded with new advances in the processes. This 1850 edition is called the fourth edition, as was the 1848 printing. See Gernsheim, INCUNABULA OF BRITISH PHOTOGRAPHIC LITERATURE, No. 682, and Roosens and Salu No. 6367 which fail to note this 1850 fourth edition. All editions of this work are rare, with WorldCat locating only two copies dated 1850, but both are the fifth edition.

        AUTO-PHOTOGRAPHIE, OU MÉTHODE DE REPRODUCTION PAR LA LUMIÈRE DES DESSINS, LITHOGRAPHIES, GRAVURES, ETC.; SANS L'EMPLOI DU DAGUERRÉOTYPE

      Paris: Dans les principaus magasins de librairie [ Impr.Bénard et Cie], 1850. Sixth edition. 8vo., 15 pp. Printed stiff wrappers. Aside from a few light spots of foxing and light toning on the corners of the title page, this is a fine and bright copy. House in a cloth over boards pamphlet case with printed labels. This was the first work to suggest the Cliché-Verre process by which a drawing on a coated glass plate could be used as a negative in contact with a silver salted paper to make a positive print. Mathieu also suggested the application of gold toning to intensify the image. "The idea of gold toning paper prints was borrowed from daguerreotypists, who used a mixture of gold chloride and sodium thiosulfate called sel d'or (literally, salt of gold) to intensify and tone their daguerreotypes. This important modification of the original daguerreotype process was discovered in 1840 by the famous French physicist Hippolyte Fizeau, and it soon became standard practice. Not until 1847 was the same idea applied to paper photographs; in that year P. F. Mathieu suggested the technique in a pamphlet entitled Auto-Photographie. Unlike the enthusiastic adoption of 'gilding' by daguerreotypists, gold toning of paper prints did not immediately catch on with photographers. Only when publicized after 1850 in the influential writings on photographic technique by Gustav LeGray did gold toning gain popularity, and then only slowly." From THE ALBUMEN & SALTED PAPER BOOK: THE HISTORY AND PRACTICE OF PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTING, 1840-1895, by James M. Reilly (Rochester: Light Impressions, 1980). WorldCat locates only four copies of the 1847 first edition, and two copies of an 1848 edition, as well as a single copy of a German edition of 1847, and a single copy of a English edition of 1848, and three copies the French edition of 1850 with two different imprints. This would explain the "Sixième Édition" on the imprint. Roosens and Salu No. 1938. Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, No. 42 noting the 1847 first edition. Although there are no identifying signature, this copy was purchased from the sale of Alphose Poitevin's library.

        Gezicht op de Dam met Beurs van Zocher - Frans Buffa & Zn., ca. 1850.

      ?Amsterdam Gezigt genomen op den Dam. Vue prise sur la place du Dam.? Fraaie lithografie vervaardigd door Bachelier naar een tekening van Chapuy, uitgegeven omstreeks 1850 te Amsterdam door Frans Buffa en Zonen in de reeks Nieuwe Panorama's der Stad Amsterdam. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (incl. titel) 31,5 x 43,5 cmWe zien de Dam in de richting van het Koninklijk Paleis en de Nieuwe Kerk. Op de voorgrond rechts de Nieuwe Beurs, naar ontwerp van architect Jan David Zocher. Dit neoclassicistische beursgebouw verving het oude verzakte beursgebouw van Hendrick de Keyser in 1845.Het gebouw werd niet neergezet op de plaats van de oude beurs, op het Rokin (daar waar tegenwoordig de Industrieele Groote Club huisvest), maar aan de noordzijde van de Dam, op het Damrak, ter plaatse van de Vismarkt. De vismarkt was al verhuisd naar de noordzijde van de Nieuwmarkt.Het ontwerp viel niet bij iedereen in de smaak, maar er waren ook praktische bezwaren. Vanwege het open binnenhof en omdat de nieuwe beurs, in tegenstelling tot die van De Keyser, naar het zuidwesten gericht was, had men, vooral ?s winters, vaak last van ijzige tocht. Spottend sprak men dan ook van ?het togtige wonder van Amsterdam?. Nog geen drie drie jaar na de opening, werd het binnenhof overdekt. Maar de kritiek bleef niet uit. De breedte van het Damrak op de hoek van de Dam bedroeg slechts 15 meter. Toen de beurs gebouwd werd was dit geen probleem, maar toen een paardentramlijn langs het Damrak werd aangelegd naar het Centraal Station, ging dat maar net. Bovendien nam de welvaart na omstreeks 1870 steeds meer toe, waardoor de beurs nu ook te klein was geworden. Het pand werd uiteindelijk gesloopt in 1903 toen Beurs van Berlage haar deuren opende. Thans staat op deze plek de Bijenkorf.Links op de prent staat het Commandantshuis, een huizencomplex dat tijdens de eerste regeringsjaren van koning Willem I in gebruik was als woning van de stadscommandant. Het Commandantshuis stond min of meer in een kwade reuk vanwege een groot openbaar toilet aan de achterzijde. Het pand werd gesloopt in 1912, thans staat hier het Nationaal Monument.Prijs: ?1.100,-.

        Manuscript] Journal Kept during my voyage to and from and tour in Europe. Embracing the period of time between April 17th 1849 and January 1st 1850

      [Portland, Maine] 1850 - [i], 304 pp., [6]. Josiah Pierce (1827-1913) a 1846 graduate of Bowdoin College, was the son of Josiah and Evelina Lewis Pierce of Gorham, Maine. He studied law with his father. At age 22 it was time for a grand tour of Europe on his own, a nine month excursion of the sights of the cities and long hikes in the countryside. All in all he covered 11,986 & 5/8th miles. Once in England and Europe, he traveled to London aboard the Devonshire, then to Scotland and Wales, on to the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and France, with nearly a fifth of his trip on foot. As he notes in the small preface to the Journal, the words were for himself only, without revision, but he has no doubt that someone other than himself would read them at some time. On the trip out he reports: "This evening I witnessed the rare phenomenon of a bow of light reflected on the northern sky by the rays of the moon being refracted through the drops of a shower. It was called a Moon-bow by some of the passengers." On July 1st, after a late night reading Scott's "Lady of the Lake" not far from the locale in which the story takes place, he writes: "It is raining heavily this morning. A party has just driven away in a post chaise looking lively and comfortable, snugly wrapped up with the windows of the carriage closed. I felt my loneliness when I saw them." On August 12th in Baden Baden he notes: "This beautiful watering place. is delightfully situated in a deep valley among mountains dark with trees: steeply above the entrance to the village on the left looms the ruins of an old castle." The last six pages are detailed listings of placed visited, distances traveled, and mode of transportation. A collection of Pierce's correspondence to his parents during this trip are at the Maine Historical Society and can be found online at "mainememory" along with extensive files in the Pierce Family Collection. Upon his return Pierce became one of three managing directors of the Portland Lyceum, trying unsuccessfully to get both Emerson and Thoreau to visit. In 1855, he was appointed U.S. Secretary of Legation to Russia where he remained off and on in diplomatic and private posts until 1870 and received a Knighthood of the 3rd Class of the Order of St. Anne from the Emperor. "Yankee Wanderer, Josiah Pierce 1827-1913" was written by William Curtis Pierce, the manuscript residing at the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Included are two leaves duplicating items in the book, and two small loose etchings clipped from another volume. Boards soiled and worn in spots, top quarter of leaves dampstained through most of the volume, with first dozen or so leaves including blanks more heavily, front endpaper torn at top edge, but easily legible throughout. Binders note on first blank. Three quarter black morocco over pebbled cloth boards, gilt rules, five raised bands, compartments lettered in gilt [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Contemporary morocco with elaborately gilt decorated spine, insignificant repair on spine, all edges gilt, marbled paste-downs; some light spotting on first and last blank leaves, otherwise an excellent copy. First edition of Gould's splendid folio on the partridges of America, in which he celebrates the unassuming game bird in a grand and sumptuous style. He here expertly illustrates 35 partridge species in their natural surroundings, greatly enlarging their recorded number. Each spectacular plate is accompanied by detailed information on each figure, including measurements, behavior, and habitats.Gould (1804-81), one of the most innovative, productive, and versatile ornithological illustrators of the nineteenth century, began his study of birds and taxidermy while assisting his father at Windsor. He became taxidermist to the Zoological Society of London in 1827 and began publishing his own books on birds beginning in 1832 with his landmark work A Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains. "In the field of natural history the accomplishments of John Gould are truly monumental. No other ornithologist has ever exceeded (or will ever exceed) the number of Gould's bird discoveries and the magnitude and splendor of his folio publications" (Sauer, John Gould, xv).

        [Manuscript Document calling for the people of Tehuantepec to join the revolt. Beginning] "El ciudadano José Gregorio Melendez Gral. de Division y Comandante en jefe de las fuerzas de Juchitan. A los Tehuantepecanos...."

      [Juchitan / Chiapas, Mexico], 1850. Broadside. A very good copy, tiny tear at one edge, minor creasing, fold, old stab marks at margin.. 1 sheet. Jose Gregorio Melendez (1793-1853) was long a leader in the Zapotec peoples' rebellions against the state government's control of local resources including land and salt, with uprisings in 1827, 1834, 1844-45, 1847, and finally in 1850-53 during which period this call for support was issued. Though Benito Juarez, who was interim governor of Oaxaca, appointed Melendez as coronel of the National Guard of the Isthmus, which made him defacto head of the armed forces created to defend against the U.S. invasion of the port of Coatzacoalcos, that only increased the conflict, and in early March 1850, Melendez routed the garrison at Tehuantepec. He and about 1000 men fled to Juchitian, while Juarez refused to negotiate. After more bloody battles, Melendez retired to Chiapas, but eventually fearing persecution there, fled back to the Isthmus, inflicting further havoc, and, as this document shows, tried to expand the base of his rebellion: "A los Tehuantepecanos. Yo soy el hombre, a quien todos vosotros debeis conocer, por el que defendiendo siempre los principios de libertados ha dado las garantías desde el ańo de 1847, la y la propiedad de nuestros hogares. Recordad, que yo he sido vuestro gobernador, vuestra autoridad política, y el hombre que, colocado al frente de vuestros negocios, os ha sabido guardar y defender.

Unite to my cause; I will protect you all; I will care for you all..." Dated: "Juchitan Noviembre 17 de 1850= Jose Gregorio Melendez." This is a copy, most likely of a broadside, from the "Secretaria del Gobierno del Estado Libre y Soberano de Chiapas." Scribal signature illegible. We could locate no other documents by Melendez nor this revolt. A scarce document from a period in Mexican history now forgotten (See: żQuién fue José Gregorio Meléndez? in Revista Guidxizá, número 16, junio de 2011).

        Grammatica Linguae Thai.:

      Bangkok ex typographia collegii Assumptionis B.M.V. in civitate regia Krung Theph maha nakhon si Ajuthaja. 1850 - Jean-Baptiste Pallegoix, 1805 – 1862, arrived in Bangkok in 1830, and was appointed vicar apostolic of Eastern Siam in 1841. He became close to King Mongkut and was influential in establishing political and commercial relations between Thailand and France. His main claim to fame was in the development of printing in Thailand. He received his first press in 1838, and published his first primer, in romanized Thai, in September that year. A number of tracts and school books were printed in the following years in Thai, Annamese, Cochinese, and Malay, but all in roman characters. This grammar appears to be both the first full length book to be printed in Thailand, and the first to use Thai characters. Pallegoix was able to use Thai type acquired from the American Protestant missionaries in Bangkok. The grammar also contains much information on Buddhism, and on Thai history and customs. Winship, Michael: Early Thai Printing to 1851. (Crossroads, Volume 3, Number1) A very good copy bound in contemporary half vellum. Some minor spotting and occasional staining to text.
