        Lavengro: The Scholar-- The Gypsy-- The Priest

      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.

        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.

        Lettera autografa firmata indirizzata a ''Chère amie'' (Rozanne Bourgoing) all'indirizzo del figlio Maurice. Datata Nohant 6 Janvier (18)51

      1851. 2 pagine in-8 autografe firmate. Nella missiva ricca di contenuti Sand si lamenta con l'anonima amica che il figlio Maurice non fosse riuscito a farle recapitare delle lettere poiché ha perduto il suo nuovo indirizzo e la invita ad alcune rappresentazioni di Bocage, noto attore parigino dell'epoca ed amante di Sand, al Théâtre de la Porte-Saint-Martin. Infine parla del problema della censura di ''Claudie'', pièce teatrale in tre atti, di cui dovette modificare alcune frasi e eliminarne altre poiché ritenute a contenuto socialista. ''J'irai à Paris, je ne sais trop quand, car je veux attendre la 2de ou 3me réprésentation de Claudie et je suis aux prises avec la censure qui est d'une absurdité incroyable avec moi et qui me forcerà peut-etre à laisser interdire ma piece''. Infine augura ogni bene all'amica per ''toute una vie d'affection et par consequent de bonheur'' con il compagno ''Alexandre'' da identificarsi con Alexandre de Curton.

        Ministerial-Conferenz sämmtlicher deutschen Regierungen durch ihre bevollmächtigten Minister und Abgeordneten, im blauen Saale des Brühlschen Palais zu Dresden 1850-1851'.

      - Lithographie b. E. Schumann in Dresden, dat. 1851, 49,5 x 54 Die Dresdener Konferenz (23. Dezember 1850 - 15. Mai 1851) bildet in der deutschen und mitteleuropaeischen Politik des 19. Jahrhunderts das historische Bindeglied zwischen der revolutionaeren und nachrevolutionaeren Aera. Nachdem Oesterreich und Preussen im Anschluss an die Revolution von 1848/49 den Weg der Konfrontation verliessen, der die deutschen Staaten an den Rand des Krieges um die Vorherrschaft in Deutschland gefuehrt hatte, waren die deutschen Grossmaechte auch zum Prinzip der Vereinbarung in bundespolitischen Fragen zurueckgekehrt. Nach dem Scheitern der deutschlandpolitischen Konzepte der Frankfurter Nationalversammlung, des Radowitz-Planes einer kleindeutschen "Erfurter Union" sowie dem oesterreichischen Projekt eines mitteleuropaeischen "Siebzig-Millionen-Reiches" stellte sich das auf dem Wiener Kongress 1815 installierte staatenbuendisch-foederale System des Deutschen Bundes nicht nur als geeignetes Mittel zur Revolutionsueberwindung, sondern auch als nationales Integrationsinstrument dar. Erstmals seit dem Wiener Kongress 1815 traten in Dresden alle Mitglieder des Deutschen Bundes zusammen, um auf der Grundlage des bestehenden Bundesrechtes (Bundesakte von 1815, Wiener Schlussakte von 1820) eine umfassende Reform des deutschen Staatenbundes zu beraten. Im Mittelpunkt der Diskussion stand dabei die Reorganisation der bestehenden Bundesorgane, der Aufbau neuen Bundesinstitutionen sowie die innere Entwicklung des Bundes auf wirtschaftlichem und bundesrechtlichem Gebiet. - Dekoratives Blatt! - Mittig die Ministerrunde umgeben von 35 Wappen in einer floralen Bordüre. - Im Vordergrund sitzend Felix von Schwarzenberg.

        Société anonyme des mines et fonderies de zinc de la Vieille Montagne. Album de 30 vues.

      Paris, [printed by Auguste Bry], 1850-1851. - Oblong folio (555 x 385 mm). Tinted lithographed title-page and 30 tinted lithographed plates (555 x 385 mm, one slightly smaller: 350 x 505 mm), all in fine contemp. hand colour. Loose in modern clamshell box. Extremely rare first edition of an impressive series of lithographed views showing the zinc mines, foundries and factories in Belgium and Germany owned by the "Société Anonyme de Mines et Fonderies de Zinc de la Vieille Montagne". The series includes views of Moresnet, Welkenraedt, Rabotraedt, Angleur, Saint Léonard (Liège), Valentin-Cocq and Bray, all beautifully rendered by the French landscape painter Adolphe Maugendre (1809-1895). The Vieille Montagne society was founded in 1837. Its history goes back to 1806, when Jean-Jacques Daniel Dony (1759-1819) was granted the sole mining rights to the calamine deposits of Vieille Montagne (or Altenberg), between Liège and Aachen. Dony had invented a new method for extracting zinc and casting it in ingots. In 1809 he established a rolling mill at Saint-Léonard, apparently the first plant for the industrial production of zinc. The series shows the complete process of producing zinc, from the zinc ore extraction to the stoking, pouring and refilling of the crucible, and finally the production of sheets of zinc in a rolling mill. It includes four detailed views of the Saint-Léonard plant (one, surprisingly, featuring a woman and two children). In the 20th century the Vieille Montagne society, together with a number of other mining and smelting companies, evolved into "Umicore", a global materials technology and recycling group still active today. A second edition was published in 1855 as Album des usines et etablissements de la société and is much less rare than the present first edition. - Some light marginal spotting, the title-page more severely, title-page with a tiny tear, otherwise in very good condition. An important visual record of the history of the zinc industry. WorldCat (only a catalogue entry, not listing any copies); no further copies in KVK. For Dony: Biographical Dictionary of the History of Technology, pp. 376-377; for Maugendre: Benezit VII, p. 273. [Attributes: First Edition]
