        The Comedies, Histories, Tragedies, and Poems of W. Shakspere, National Edition, (8 Volume Set)

      London; 1851-1852: Charles Knight. T.A. Prior; W. Harvey; F.W. Fiarholt; R.W. Buss; et al.. Octavo. In eight volumes illustrated by T.A. Prior; W. Harvey; F.W. Fiarholt; R.W. Buss; et al. There was a growing veneration and desire for a knowledge of Shakespeare in the Victorian era. While these fine editions by Charles Knight were too costly for the laboring man, they became the standard editions for the serious reader not just among the aristocracy but the growing middle class. Since there were not only some erroneous versions being printed but also previous illustrations of the plays were done by artists who clearly were unfamiliar with the plays, he sought to correct these errors and became the standard text for scholar and serious reader alike. He discovered that not only had words been changed but whole lines had been omitted. Since the considered the first folio as the texus receptus, he collated his copy with those in the British Library. He spent a month with William Harvey (a student of Bewick) in Stratford-on-Avon working on buildings associated with Shakespeare so that the illustrations in this edition would be presented as accurate as possible. The National Edition was the culmination of his research and included his magnificent Studies of Shakespeare which formed companion volume to every edition of the text. As Alan R. Young points out: "that single-handedly as publisher, editor, commentator, and researcher Knight made an enormous contribution to Victorian awareness of Shakespeare." (Papers of the Bibliographic Society of America, Vol. 103, No. 1, p. 36). The original manuscripts in Knight's collection as well as his extensive scholarly notes were destroyed in the London blitz during World War II. Bound in ¾ brown calf over marbled paper covered boards, raised bands with compartments fully gilt decorated, black and brown spine labels gilt, all edges marbled with marbled endpapers, damp stain to upper edge of title page to volume I-Comedies not penetrating to other leaves. Some rubbing or staining to boards. A handsome set.

        Social Statics: or, the Conditions essential to Human Happiness specified, and the First of them developed.

      London: John Chapman, 1851 - Octavo (203 x 125 mm). Contemporary half calf and marbled boards, spine ruled and decorated gilt in compartments, red and black labels, marbled endpapers and edges. Gilt a little faded, first and last leaves a little spotted, one gathering a little toned due to paper stock; a very good copy. Printed ex-libris of C. S. Burman to front pastedown. First edition of Spencer's first book, which "was concerned with the 'equilibrium of a perfect society' in the future, rather than the forces (or 'dynamics') by which society was struggling towards perfection in the immediate present (p. 229). Although the book attracted little attention at the time, it contained some important pointers to the ways in which Spencer's thought was developing. The most important of these were his treatment of human society as governed by immutable natural laws, his vision of the role of the state as confined to the enforcement of those natural laws, his emphasis on continuous functional adaptation in both institutions and organisms, and his formulation of a law of 'equal freedom' for each individual, limited only by 'the similar freedoms of all' (p. 35). The book also reflected the strain of utopian radicalism in Spencer's thought inherited from his early background: it denied the legitimacy of private property in land, held out equality of the sexes as a moral ideal, and advocated the training of children by persuasion and rational argument rather than discipline and coercion." (ODNB). [Attributes: First Edition]

      Paris: La Librairie Encyclopédique De Roret, 1851. Nouvelle édition, entièrement refondue, ornée de figures, et mise au courant des perfectionnements les plus récents. 16mo., xvi, 368 pp., 90 pp. publisher's catalogue, illustrations in text, and one large folding engraved plate with 36 figures. Quarter vellum gilt with spine label and marbled paper over boards. The original illustrated wrappers are bound in. An unusually fine and bright copy. An excellent survey of photographic processes to date. The largest portion is devoted to the daguerreotype - Valicourt was a practitioner of the process. Valicourt provides full descriptions of apparatus and chemicals, plates (including daguerreotype) and the various paper processes in use: collodion, albumen and gelatin, etc. Also includes photomechanical techniques. Valicourt had previously written a few short pieces which appeared as chapters in texts by Smee, and a text on Blanquart-Evrard's paper process from the mid 1840s; in this title he has borrowed and distilled from the the discoveries of Niépce, Daguerre, Fox Talbot, Herschel, Hunt, Blanquard-Evrard, Niepce de St.-Victor, Fizean, Claudet, et al.To call this volume a " Nouvelle édition" is an exaggeration; it is the first full manual on photography written by Valicourt, and one of the superior compendiums of known photographic processes to date.Not listed in Roosens and Salu.Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, No. 55, as a first appearance.

      London: George Knight and Sons, 1851. Third edition. 12mo., 38, (2) pp., illustrated with woodcuts. Original illustrated paper wrappers, tipped to new outer wrappers of marbled paper with printed title affixed to the front. Very good. Housed in a clamshell box of cloth with printed labels. A well-illustrated, detailed and priced catalogue that includes illustrated daguerreian cameras, an improved American camera, Martin's traversing or panoramic camera, and cameras for various paper processes, including calotype, talbotype, and a folding field camera. The lenses are by Voighlander, and English achromatic lenses, presumably manufactured by Knight. The remainder of this catalogue offers support stands, head rests, daguerreotype plates, cleaning and polishing apparatus, pans and boxes, washing, fixing and drying apparatus, colors for painting daguerreotypes, frames, chemicals for paper processes, and every other article in use at this tine. The rear wrapper has a large engraving of Knight's building on Foster Lane, Cheapside, and a map showing the Thames to the south, Holborn at the northwest, London Wall at the northeast, and Knight's location near St. Paul's. George Knight & Sons were among the earliest and largest retailers and manufacturers of photographic equipment and chemistry. By 1848, they had published their first catalogue, and expanded editions with varying titles were issued through the mid 1850s. WorldCat locates single copies of various editions and lengths through a fifth edition of 44 pages, dated 1853. Gernsheim - INCUNABULA No. 689 lists an 1850 edition, but does not state a pagination, leading us to believe he did not examine a copy. Roosens and Salu, Nos. 5693 and 5694 list editions of 1849 (no pagination stated), and 1855, 28 pp. All editions are rare.

        Education as a means of preventing destitution: with exemplifications from the teaching of the conditions of well-being and the principles and applications of economical science at the Birkbeck Schools. Prefaced by a letter to the Right Hon. Lord John Russell, M.P.

      London: Smith, Elder and Co. 1851. 8vo., vi + 153 + (1)pp., followed by (2) + 16pp. of advertisements, original blind-stamped maroon cloth, spine gilt lettered, small snags at head and foot of spine, else a fine presentation copy> inscribed at the head of title, 'James Shields Esq. with the author's kind regards'.> First edition: uncommon. William Ellis (1800-1881), economist and educational reformer, joined John Stuart Mill's Utilitarian Society and attended its twice-weekly discussions, Mill himself considered Ellis to be 'An original thinker in the field of political economy'. He was also associated with Lovell and the National Hall. 'Ellis regarded careful moral training and instruction in social well-being as the most beneficent tasks open to popular education; attention to health and careful economy in money and material resources were in his view the measures best calculated to improve the labouring man's condition. In support of these opinions he lectured, wrote, opened schools, instructed their teachers and lavished his fortune. After the beginning made in the National Hall, he established his first school on the premises of the London Mechanics' Institution, calling it in honour of the Institution's president the Birkbeck School, a name which was also applied to the other six schools which Ellis maintained in London between 1848 and 1862. His work and his ideas attracted general attention; they so far interested the Prince Consort that Ellis was called upon to give instruction to the children of the Royal Family'. [J.W. Adamson, English education 1789-1902,> p.162].

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Hursley, Hampshire, England: Not published, 1851. Four page letter, written entirely in the hand of and signed by John Keble. Written from Hursley Vicarage and dated October 14, 1857, it reads: My dear Sir, I thank you much for sending me the Inscription, + for mentioning the Window. It has occurred to me that for the subject or one of the subjects of the latter there might be something appropriate, if one could get it properly treated, in the Prophet Isaiah having his lips touched by a coal of fire from the alter in the hand of an angel c. vi. 6.7. But one is almost afraid to mention it - it would require such superior skill + feeling. If your artist could submit his design before execution to some such person as Mr. Butterfield, I should say, from experience, that he would be doing on of the best things he could for his work. I should wish to give a little (I cannot afford more) to the windows - will you kindly put me down for a guinea? I will you believe me, dear Sir, yours very truly, [signed] J Keble. I have mentioned it to Professor Reed." The Butterfiled referred to in the letter is undoubtedly William Butterfield (1814 - 1900) architect. Keble was an English clergyman and poet. J. H. Newman later called Keble's sermon of July 14 1833 as the beginning of the Oxford Movement. From 1836, he was the priest of a small Parish of Hursley, Hampshire. Three years after his death, Keble College at Oxford was established (Butterfield built the chapel).. Signed. No edition. Unbound. Very good+ condition.

(Palau, 89532; Sabin 57990) First edition.Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo y Valdes (August 1478 - 1557) was a Spanish historian and writer who united a classical humanistic education with extensive experience in the New World. As a youth he entered the service of Alphonso of Aragon, nephew of Ferdinand the Catholic and soon afterward he became a page of Prince John, the son of Ferdinand and Isabella. Throughout his life he retained close contacts with the royal court. He was present at the return of Christopher Columbus in 1493. He traveled and studied in Italy. He went to the New World in 1514 in the expedition of Padrarias Davila as supervisor of gold smelting. During his life he held many offices in the New World--regidor of Nuestra Senora de la Antigua, governor o Cartagena, regidor and alcalde o the fortress of Santo Domingo--and he crossed the ocean a dozen times. Oviedo's humanistic curiosity led him to note down the novelties of the land, nature, and peoples of the New World, as well as the history of the discovery and conquest. He began to write his Historia general y natural de las Indias during the second stay in the Indies (1520-1521). In 1526 he published a brief work which is known as the Sumario de la natural historia de las Indias. It gained him the attention of the Emperor, who appointed him official Chronicler of the Indies in 1532. All the authorities of the Indies were obliged to send him whatever relations and information he requested. He did a large part of his writing in Santo Domingo. The first nineteen books of his Historia general y natural de las Indias were printed in Seville in 1535. The twentieth book did not appear until 1557, perhaps because of the bitter opposition of the influential Bishop Las Casas. The complete fifty books of the history were printed only in 1851-55. No complete English translation of the Historia was ever published. For the ethnohistorian Oviedo's Historia is one of the most valuable of the early chronicles. He is especially important for southern Middle America, where he had considerable personal experience. For other areas he used many firsthand sources which are now lost to us. The strongest criticism that has been directed against him is that he followed his sources uncritically and is a more a chronicler than historian. But because of his interest in all aspects of the New World, he recorded much that is of interest to the student of Indian life at the time of Contact. Of particular interest for Middle America are books 28-35 and 40-43, but there are also valuable ethnological data in the books devoted to natural history. (Handbook of Middle American Indians volume 13).Condition:Some age toning to plates else a very good to fine copy.

        Floral Poems: with Pictures in the Flowers

      London: Ackermann and Co, 1851. First edition of this scarce hand-colored fantasy, a whimsical combination of two Victorian obsessions: floriography and fairies. Each verse invokes the unique traits of a particular flower in an appeal to the poet's Valentine: the Rose, the Hyacinth, Woodbine, the Pink and the Passionflower, the Tulip, and the Heart's Ease. In the brightly detailed color plates, the featured flowers serve as the setting for a miniature love story played out by a pair of fairies, accompanied by a mischievous Cupid nocking an arrow in his bow. The plates are unsigned, although the paintings recall the work of Jane Elizabeth Giraud, illustrator of Flowers of Shakespeare (1845) and Flowers of Milton (1846). OCLC locates five copies worldwide, only one in the United States (Morton Arboretum Special Collections). A beautiful and unusual color plate book, published by the premier English lithographer of the day. Quarto, modern half green morocco lettered in gilt over abstract floral green and pink marbled boards, pale green endpapers, all edges gilt. Title page printed in red and purple. Six full-page hand-colored lithographs highlighted in gilt, each interleaved with a blank page and page of text, printed on versos only. Small, neat repair to corner of one plate, not affecting image.

      1851 - Fifty-two folio newspapers (a complete set for the first year of publication) of the utopian community periodical, The Circular. 268pp. of 4-column printed text including index. Unbound but stitched together with 2 leaves of blank newsprint at the front and back. While leading utopian communities at Oneida, New York and Putney, Vermont, John Humphrey Noyes edited several newspapers over the course of his career. This particular newspaper succeeded the Free Church Circular (1847 - 1851), which was printed at Oneida. Following a fire that destroyed his printing press, Noyes set up a new print shop in Brooklyn and began this new publication, The Circular, in November 1851. During its first year, the newspaper was issued on a weekly basis and then on a semi-weekly basis in subsequent years. This complete set of issues for the first year appears to have been readied for binding that ultimately did not occur. It contains articles, stories, letters, reviews and hymns that emphasize Noyes' utopian brand of spiritualism, free love and communism in the mid-19th century. Light dampstain to upper left hand corner of some issues but otherwise clean and wholly intact.

      London, John Murray, 1851. Hard Cover. Three volumes: xx (i.e. xviii), 360; xi, 366; xi, 426 p. ”'Lavengro' in gypsy language means 'philologist'. The name was supplied to Borrow in his youth by Ambrose Smith, who figures in this work as Jasper Petulengro. This work purports to be the story of Borrow's own wandering, restless life, but mingles fact with fiction... he became attached to a family of gypsies and met tinkers, horse-copers, an old apple-woman (also a receiver of solen goods) and a brace of murderers.” His most successful book, among the reprints, was a Limited Editions Club version. Wolff, Nineteenth Century Fiction 598. Bound in 3/4 leather with marble paper boards. Stock#NS0003. Vg, some slight scuffing to leather.

      Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, Boston 1851 - 183 x 120 mm. (7 1/4 x 4 3/4"). 2 p.l. (advertisements), 344 pp. FIRST EDITION, Fourth Issue. VERY ATTRACTIVE LATER POLISHED CALF, GILT, COMMISSIONED BY GOODSPEED OF BOSTON (stamp-signed on front flyleaf), covers with French fillet border, raised bands, spine in six compartments, two with dark brown morocco titling labels, the others with central black flower tool surrounded by much leafy gilt foliage, gilt turn-ins, top edge gilt. Front endpaper with a cut signature of the author mounted vertically. BAL 7604; Clark A17.1.d. Contents printed on lesser quality paper and consequently with intermittent foxing, browning, and small stains (not infrequent, but always minor), otherwise perfectly satisfactory internally, and the pleasing binding entirely unworn. Hawthorne's classic gothic novel appears here with two special bonus features--a pleasing new smooth calf binding and a cut signature of the author. Written and published shortly after his enormously popular and best-known title, "The Scarlet Letter," the present work contains similar themes of guilt, repentance, and dark romance. Set in New England in the mid-19th century, this is the story of a particular house and its residents, both of which are haunted by a troubling history that includes witchcraft and death. The distinctive seven-gabled house of the title was actually based on a real place--the home of Hawthorne's cousin in Salem, Massachusetts--and can still be visited today. This title is not infrequently encountered on the market, but its original cloth binding is notoriously difficult to find in desirable condition. This finely bound volume offers an opportunity to obtain a thoroughly pleasing copy of this American classic in an attractive alternative form.
