        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.

        Historia general y natural de las Indias, islas y tierra firme del mar océano

      Four volumes: cxii+632,[1] pages with five plates; vii+511+[2 errata] pages with three plates (two of which are folding maps); viii+651+[2] pages two plates (of which one is a map); viii+619+[1 errata] pages plus five plates (of which one is a color folding map). Folio (13" x 9 1/2") bound in quarter leather with five raised spine bands decorated in gilt and red labels in gilt lettering over brown boards. Deckle edges. (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.

        THE CIRCULAR.

      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.

        THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES

      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.
