Moby Dick Herman Melville 1st edition 1851 Rare! Moby Dick Written by Herman Melville Published by: Harper and Brothers Publishers Printed in: 1851 ----- Features ----- · Leather With Five Raised Bands to Spine · Gilt Lettering and decorations to outside boards · All edges Gilt Condition This book is in very good condition. There are no signatures, bookplates, or markings of any kind. The book has been rebound in Full leather with gilt lettering and decoration to the outside boards. There is some light foxing throughout, but the book is much cleaner then is typically seen. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. This is a first edition printed by Harper and Brothers in 1851. 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]

Sir John Graham Dalyell
1851. The Powers of the Creator Sir John Graham Dalyell London, John van Voorst, Paternoster Row. 3 Volumes, 4to. Vol I, 1851 (70 plates, one tissue guard missing, one plate monotone), Vol II, 1853 (46 plates, one tissue guard missing), & Vol III, 1858 (29 plates including frontispiece and 2 different plates for plate XI. One plate monotone). Hardcover. 1st Edition. Complete with 145 original plates of which 142 are hand coloured with two monotone and a plain engraving. This wonderful set of books is a first edition of this scholarly and very scarce three volume work by Sir John Graham Dalyell on the evidence for the support of a creationist theory in nature. The volumes are more often found individually, if at all, as they were published separately, but this set for offer here comprises all three volumes complete with all their 145 plates. The plates depicting crustaceans are particularly fine. All volumes are very scarce even individually. Sir John Graham Dalyell(1775-1851) was a Scottish antiquary and naturalist; some of his other more popular works include "Rare and Remarkable Animals of Scotland", but without any doubt the three volumes of "Powers of the Creator" constitute the finest example of his work both in terms of his scholarly approach and for the delicacy and detail of the coloured plates as well as for being extremely rare to come across. The first volume of "The Powers of the Creator" was published in 1851. The second volume in 1853, after the author's death, by his sister Elizabeth Dalyell, and the third volume in 1858. Dalyell was a noted writer on nature … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Heine evidently included Pleyel in the mighty ensemble of the reigning European piano virtuosos when he called "Thalberg a king, Liszt a prophet, Chopin a poet, Herz an advocate, Kalkbrenner a minstrel, Mme Pleyel a sibyl, and Döhler a pianist." François-Joseph Fétis, who eventually invited Pleyel to become the first head of the piano department at the Brussels Conservatory, wrote: "I have heard all the celebrated pianists from Hullmandel and Clementi up to the famous ones of today [ca. 1870] but I say that none of them has given me, as has Mme.

Dort hatte er Gelegenheit, die Gegenstände der verschiedenen Zweige der industriellen Künste zu sammeln und die Baukunst und ihre Stilformen in den Rahmen einer allgemeinen Kunstformenlehre und deren Urtechniken zu stellen.

(mm. 195x126), mz. pelle coeva, tit. oro al dorso, conservata brossura orig., pp. 21, con 1 tavola, litografata e più volte ripieg. f.t., che illustra un areostato composto di 3 parti: il pallone - il telaio - il timone. "Edizione originale". Cfr. Boffito, pp.162-163: “L’A. era ingegnere architetto, e dimostra una certa originalità in questo suo volumetto, dove fa pure alcune buone osservazioni sovra i sistemi di dirigibilità, specialmente sull’uso inutile delle vele. Il suo sistema si appoggia al principio d’approfittare dell’urto che riceve dall’aria un corpo che cade nell’atmosfera. Oggi si direbbe che il Cernuschi cercò di accoppiare l’aeroplano al dirigibile, il più pesante al più leggero.. Quanto alla salita propone una mongolfiera ad aria rarefatta, ossia a fuoco, protetta però da rete metallica.. perchè più facilmente maneggevole, e per non essere in balia del vento manovra il telaio piano in senso contrario a quello di discesa, cioè se la vela in discesa è inclinata verso levante, in salita per continuare lo stesso cammino dovrà essere inclinata a ponente. Pensa poi che il telaio coll’albero possa servire di paracadute..”. Solo qualche lieviss. fioritura, altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

He spent eight years carrying out the work for this, and the corresponding work on living forms (published by the Ray Society, 1851, 1854). Freeman states that these are Darwin's '. only contributions to formal taxonomy and are still held in high regard.' The Royal Society awarded Darwin its Royal Medal in 1853, partly as a result of his first volume on fossil barnacles. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Hawthorne, Nathaniel
Boston: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, 1851. First edition. Near Fine. Original publisher's cloth binding stamped in gilt and blind. An exceptional copy of this American masterpiece, in just about Fine condition. Spine ends gently chipped and small bump to lower front corner; front hinge a bit tender but holding strong. Internally some light scattered foxing to preliminaries, else clean and unmarked. Housed in a custom silk slip case. Hester Prynne, publicly punished as an adulterer when she bears a child out of wedlock, refuses to name the father of her daughter; instead, she lives life in her village, wearing a mandatory scarlet A as a sign of her shame. Though Hester's body betrays her secret, in pregnancy and motherhood, her honesty and public acknowledgement of her daughter brings her greater redemption than the two men in her life. For years, the Reverend Dimmesdale struggles in secret with his guilt at allowing Hester to bear punishment alone for their affair. And her cruel, estranged husband (alias Roger Chillingworth) becomes morally bankrupt in his desperate search to uncover and name her lover, the unknown father of Pearl. A classic of American literature. Near Fine.

WETHERELL, Elizabeth.
New York: George P. Putnam, 1851. New York: George P. Putnam,, 1851. Only ""surpassed by Uncle Tom's Cabin in sales and popularity"" 2 volumes, octavo. Original green morocco-grain cloth, titles and decorative motifs to spine in bronze, covers stamped in blind within double-rule frames, yellow coated endpapers (BAL binding b, no priority). Spines gently cocked and a little sunned, faint spotting to joints, touch of wear to tips, occasional foxing; a very good copy indeed. First edition of Susan Bogert Warner's first novel written under the pseudonym of Elizabeth Wetherell. Warner (1819-1885) began writing The Wide, Wide World in 1848 but had difficulty finding a publisher. "Even when George P. Putnam accepted the novel for publication in 1850 (largely because his mother was enthusiastic about the manuscript), he initially printed only 750 copies; two years later, the novel was reprinted for the fourteenth time, and for decades to come, only Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin surpassed Warner's first novel in sales and popularity" (ANB). Henry James wrote admiringly of the work in the Nation in 1860, praising Warner's realistic depiction of rural life. This copy is in the third state listed in BAL, without the printer's imprint on the copyright page, and the final signature of vol. II being [15]^4; the order of priority given as "probable". Blanck notes in his juvenilia bibliography Peter Parley to Penrod that, as in the present copy, "in first printed copies the folio at p. 157, vol. I, and the folio at p. 34, vol.

Sir John Graham Dalyell
1851. The Powers of the Creator Sir John Graham Dalyell London, John van Voorst, Paternoster Row. 3 Volumes, 4to. Vol I, 1851 (70 plates, one tissue guard missing, one plate monotone), Vol II, 1853 (46 plates, one tissue guard missing), & Vol III, 1858 (29 plates including frontispiece and 2 different plates for plate XI. One plate monotone). Hardcover. 1st Edition. Complete with 145 original plates of which 142 are hand coloured with two monotone and a plain engraving. This wonderful set of books is a first edition of this scholarly and very scarce three volume work by Sir John Graham Dalyell on the evidence for the support of a creationist theory in nature. The volumes are more often found individually, if at all, as they were published separately, but this set for offer here comprises all three volumes complete with all their 145 plates. The plates depicting crustaceans are particularly fine. All volumes are very scarce even individually. Sir John Graham Dalyell(1775-1851) was a Scottish antiquary and naturalist; some of his other more popular works include "Rare and Remarkable Animals of Scotland", but without any doubt the three volumes of "Powers of the Creator" constitute the finest example of his work both in terms of his scholarly approach and for the delicacy and detail of the coloured plates as well as for being extremely rare to come across. The first volume of "The Powers of the Creator" was published in 1851. The second volume in 1853, after the author's death, by his sister Elizabeth Dalyell, and the third volume in 1858. Dalyell was a noted writer on nature … [Click Below for Full Description]

George P. Putnam, 1851. 8vo, pp. [6], 72, [2], 2 [ads], 2 [ads], 6 [ads on yellow paper]; 5 plates; original brown cloth, gilt-stamped upper cover; a few cracks in the cloth along the hinges neatly repaired with small strips of cellotape; otherwise a very good copy. An early reference work on gold coins from California and other states issued for collectors and those dealing in the money trade. The authors were assayers of the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia. The first edition of this work, issued in 1850, contained several samples of genuine California gold ore and is notably scarce. This revised edition was issued without the samples but contains new material on the California gold situation and California coins; Mormon coins; and other West Coast imprints. There are 5 handsome engraved plates at the end of the book showing gold coins from California and the west coast; Mormon coins; gold ingots; mining company issues; coins from Central America; and much more. The second half of the book, written by Du Bois, is devoted to ancient coins in the U.S. Mint's private collection, including coins from the Roman Empire, Persia, the Byzantine era, and more. This collection was formed in 1838 with Du Bois serving as its first curator. Cowan, p. 76; Kuritz 217b; Sabin 21788.
