1851. F. LECONTE Mémoires Pittoresques d'un officier de marine. Brest, Chez Le Pontois, Paris, Chez Le Doyen et Gire, 1851 in-8 Volume 2 seulement (sur 2° EXTREMEMENT RARE Leconte a été nommé commandant de la station navale française à Akaroa, en Nouvelle-Zélande, et une grande partie du deuxième volume de son mémoire concerne son voyage à travers le Pacifique Sud sur la corvette La Seine pour prendre ce poste. Ainsi que de faire le point sur la colonie d'Akaroa, il inclut des notices détaillées de Tahiti, des Tonga et de la Nouvelle-Calédonie, avec quelques commentaires judicieux sur les activités missionnaires. En 1846, La Seine a fait naufrage sur la côte de la Nouvelle-Calédonie; un navire de secours, l'Arabe, a été envoyé de Sydney, où la plupart de l'équipage a été pris. Un chapitre est consacré à leur séjour d'un mois à Sydney, où ils ont été traités comme des invités de marque. Mais Pas à Ferguson, Bagnall ou Hill Collection; O'Reilly-Reitman 1097, note que sa rareté s'explique en grande partie par le fait que l'éditeur, Pontois, a fait faillite peu de temps après et que les copies restantes ont été brûlées.

E.C [?]
[Boston?: 1850 or 1851?]. Lithograph, 10" x 14.375" plus margins. A scarce and vivid lithograph illustrating the tensions surrounding the passage of the fugitive slave law. The Library of Congress provides an excellent description of this evocative print: "A satire on the antagonism between Northern abolitionists on the one hand, and Secretary of State Daniel Webster and other supporters of enforcement of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. Here abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison (left) holds a slave woman in one arm and points a pistol toward a burly slave catcher mounted on the back of Daniel Webster. The slave catcher, wielding a noose and manacles, is expensively dressed, and may represent the federal marshals or commissioners authorized by the act (and paid) to apprehend and return fugitive slaves to their owners. Behind Garrison a black man also aims a pistol toward the group on the right, while another seizes a cowering slaveholder by the hair and is about to whip him saying, 'It's my turn now Old Slave Driver.' Garrison: 'Don't be alarmed Susanna, you're safe enough.' Slave catcher: 'Don't back out Webster, if you do we're ruind.' Webster, holding 'Constitution': 'This, though Constitutional, is extremely disagreeable.' Man holding volumes 'Law & Gospel': 'We will give these fellows a touch of South Carolina.' Man with quill and ledger: 'I goes in for Law & Order.' A fallen slaveholder: 'This is all your fault Webster.' In the background is a Temple of Liberty flying two flags, one reading 'A day, an hour, of virtuous Liberty, is worth an age of Servitude' and the othe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Prison de Sainte-Pélagie, 1851. Fine. Paris, Prison de Sainte-Pélagie 12 Novembre 1851, 13x20,5cm, une feuille. - 43768 - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] « Je n'apparais encore à beaucoup de gens que comme la négation pure et simple de ce qui est » Lettre autographe signée de 4 pages datée du 12 Novembre 1851. 124 lignes à l'encre noire. Lettre autographe inédite sur le progrès, signée de Pierre-Joseph-Marie Proudhon, figure incontournable de la pensée sociale française, et « père de l'anarchie » selon le président de la République française Armand Fallières. Le philosophe emprisonné depuis 1849 développe dans un style virulent et combatif ses convictions socialistes et condamne les absolutismes de son temps. Extraordinaire profession de foi philosophique, politique et sociale d'un penseur à la marge, dont la fortune critique et l'influence se retrouvent de Karl Marx à Emile Durkheim en passant par Benjamin Tucker. La missive est rédigée d'une écriture rapide et dense, comportant de nombreux passages soulignés appuyant certains concepts philosophiques. Le premier feuillet présente un en-tête du journal Le Peuple de 1850, un des quatre journaux dirigés par Proudhon sous la seconde République, qui lui valurent d'être emprisonné pour « incitation à la haine du gouvernement » « provocation à la guerre civile » et « attaque à la Constitution et à la propriété ». Cette lettre inédite, datée du 12 novembre 1851, constitue une réflexion passionnée et inédite, proche d'une lettre intitulée « De l'Idée de Progrès », écrite une dizaine de jours plus tard, que Proudhon publie a … [Click Below for Full Description]

1851. London: Parker, [1851]. Sm. 8vo, (8), 159, [160]pp. Errata slip tipped in at the end. Original green cloth, backstrip faded to brown, ephemera tipped in at front with bookplate and pencil notes; neatly restored with cloth repair to backstrip and joints. Enclosed in a green moiré silk box. § First edition, first issue of the errata slip, with an ALS from Meredith dated Sept. 12, 1890 about this title and his other books. "It is a surprise to me to see verses of mine attracting notice and discussion. Our critics have usually a distaste for that which has not won the public. But I cannot agree with you in your generous remarks on my first volume..." The letter is signed by the recipient illegibly (possibly Jonathan Rees?), dated Cardiff Sep. 1890. Forman, Meredith 1; Hayward 270. The purported rarity of this volume, some 300 copies supposedly having been destroyed by the author, is perhaps belied by the wide institutional holdings and the current (12/2019) presence of no less than 6 copies for sale.

The book comes with a custom made slipcase. There is some wear to the inner slipcase. While it is not known exactly how many copies of this book were made, it was not initially successful, and so the book did not have a large printing. The book became even more scarce after a fire at Harper and Brothers destroyed many of the unsold copies in 1853. The book comes with a foldout box made for the book. A very hard to find copy of Melville's classic work. Synopsis Moby-Dick is an 1851 novel by Herman Melville. The story tells the adventures of the wandering sailor Ishmael and his voyage on the whaleship Pequod, commanded by Captain Ahab. Ishmael soon learns that Ahab seeks one specific whale, Moby Dick, a white whale of tremendous size and ferocity. Comparatively few whaleships know of Moby Dick, and fewer yet have encountered him. In a previous encounter, the whale destroyed Ahab's boat and bit off his leg. Aha … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contrefaçon belge parue peu de temps après la première pré-originale belge imprimée chez Tarride à Bruxelles en 1848 également en 20 tomes in-16. Cette édition de 1851 est un retirage, avec seulement d'infimes différences de justification des pages, de l'édition Tarride 1848 (Bruxelles). Le texte est identique.

Herman Melville
1851 Moby Dick by Herman Melville - First Edition, First Printing - 1851 Moby Dick was published by Harper's as a first printing of 2,915 copies, including the standard 125 review copies. The selling price was $1.50. About 1,500 copies were sold within 11 days, and then sales slowed down to less than 300 the next year. After three years, the first edition was still available, almost 300 copies of which were lost when a fire broke out at the firm in December 1853. In 1855, a second printing of 250 copies was issued, in 1863, a third of 253 copies, and finally in 1871, a fourth printing of 277 copies, which sold so slowly that no new printing was ordered. Because of Nineteenth century printing practices, and the time lapse between when the first-editions were published and Melville became collectable, oxidized paper, bumped and chipped spines, and brittle wrappers are all common for even the most expensive and collectable of these books, which can sell from $35,000 to $100,000. A total of 3,215 copies of Moby-Dick were sold during Melville's life (he died in 1891). Today, Moby-Dick is considered one of the greatest American novels. This auction is for one of the American Harper's First Editions of Moby Dick: This first edition, first printing is well read and has been restored at some point. The 1851 printing has a relayed title page with rips as shown in the pictures. There is staining on many pages and writing on Page #1 and on the inside front cover.

Hill (1816-65) caused controversy when he claimed to have developed a process to create color photographs, which he called "heliochromes" (and which soon became personalized to "Hillotypes"). It wasn't until 1856 that Hill published his "Treatise on Heliochromy" to explain the process, but a daguerreotypist got the book banned on grounds of libel and all but a few were pulped. Hill's process was long discredited, then forgotten, although recent scientific tests show that his convoluted process works somewhat. A decent copy of this rarity. A second edition, revised and enlarged, was issued in 1854 by Myron Shew in Philadelphia, and this later edition too is extremely scarce. [Attributes: First Edition]

Monsieur le sous-préfet m'a donné de vos nouvelles dans une petite visite qu'il m'a faite. Je viens de la lui rendre il n'y a que quelques minutes. Je lui ai fait lire les quelques strophes de vers qui vous sont adressées, et que je vous prie d'accepter du même coeur qu'elles vous sont offertes, j'ai fait cela pour vous prouver que je ne vous oublie pas et que votre souvenir me sera toujours cher [...]". .

Herman Melville
1851 Moby Dick by Herman Melville - First Edition, First Printing - 1851 Moby Dick was published by Harper's as a first printing of 2,915 copies, including the standard 125 review copies. The selling price was $1.50. About 1,500 copies were sold within 11 days, and then sales slowed down to less than 300 the next year. After three years, the first edition was still available, almost 300 copies of which were lost when a fire broke out at the firm in December 1853. In 1855, a second printing of 250 copies was issued, in 1863, a third of 253 copies, and finally in 1871, a fourth printing of 277 copies, which sold so slowly that no new printing was ordered. Because of Nineteenth century printing practices, and the time lapse between when the first-editions were published and Melville became collectable, oxidized paper, bumped and chipped spines, and brittle wrappers are all common for even the most expensive and collectable of these books, which can sell from $35,000 to $100,000. A total of 3,215 copies of Moby-Dick were sold during Melville's life (he died in 1891). Today, Moby-Dick is considered one of the greatest American novels. This auction is for one of the American Harper's First Editions of Moby Dick: This first edition, first printing is well read and has been restored at some point. The 1851 printing has a relayed title page with rips as shown in the pictures. There is staining on many pages and writing on Page #1 and on the inside front cover. The advertisings at the end of the book are correct for a 1st printing and show Melvilles other novels, the Redburn page has … [Click Below for Full Description]
