        The Works of John Milton in Verse and Prose; With a Life of the Author by The Rev. John Mitford

      London - William Pickering 1851 - A beautifully bound set of Pickering'sdecoratedcompleteWorks of John Milton,including verse, prose, and a life of the author. Bound by Hayday, with his bookbinder's stamp to the front free endpapers. With a facsimile of the Agreement between Milton and Symonds, and plate of the 'Pedigree of Milton'. This is widely thought of as the finest set by Pickering, and is often found in particularly fine bindings as a result. This set is an excellent example. John Milton, was an English poet, author, polemicist and civil servant for the Commonwealth of England. He is best known for his epic poem Paradise Lost, included here in the second volume. He was a scholarly man of letters, a polemical writer, and an official serving under Oliver Cromwell. He wrote at a time of religious and political flux in England, and his poetry and prose reflect deep convictions. As well as English, he wrote in Latin and Italian, and had an international reputation during his lifetime. John Mitford was an English literary scholar, and Church of England clergyman. As well as clerical duties, Mitford contributed articles to theGentlemans Magazine, and became the editor of its new series in 1834. Mitford was an indefatigable student of the Greek and Roman classics, and was well acquainted with the principal French, German, and Italian authors. He was well read in English literature, and was an ardent lover of painting. Amongst other literary efforts, Mitford edited numerous works in Pickerings Aldine editions, and in 1851 Mitford edited in eight volumesThe Works of Milton in Verse and Prose, and wrote for it a memoir, expanded from that in the 1832 edition of Milton's poems.

The appendix contains a comparative table of dialects spoken by the Eskimo. Some copies are described as having a map, but it is not called for in the list of illustrations" - Sabin.

        Revue historique du regne de l'empereur Nicolas I. [???????????? ????????? ???????????? ???????? ?????????? ??????? I].

      Tip. ekpeditsii zagotovleniya gos. bumag Skt. Peterburg 1851 - VIII, 214, [6] pp. Contemporary presentation blue velvet binding, blind tooling to covers, all edges gilt, owner's inscription to half-title; very slightly rubbed. Beautifully bound copy of this overview of the reign of Nicholas I written by one of the most respected historians of that time. Nikolay Ustrialov (1805 –1870) was a Russian historian and professor at the Saint Petersburg University. He published a number of important works on history of Russia, which were favourably received by the Imperial court and government. In 1847 Ustrialov published a historical overview of the reign of Nicholas I in Russian to serve as a textbook for the University students. So important the work was considered that Nicholas I personally reviewed the manuscript and introduced corrections. The original edition was followed by the French translation four years later. The motives of the translator are explained in the introduction. During his travels around Europe Babushkin found the Europeans being very ignorant of the Russian history and culture. The only way to combat it in his opinion would be making reliable historical sources available in the language understood by most of the European courts. Rare. We could not trace the French edition in any public holdings in the West. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        REGULATIONS FOR THE UNIFORM & DRESS OF THE ARMY OF THE UNITED STATES. JUNE, 1851. FROM THE ORIGINAL TEXT AND DRAWINGS IN THE NAVY DEPARTMENT

      Philadelphia: Published by William H. Hortsmann and Sons, 1851. 13,[1]pp., plus twenty-five plates by P.S. Duval after G.C. Humphries (five printed in colors, six handcolored). Folio. Original grey paper-covered limp boards, blue/grey title label on upper cover, rebacked with green cloth. Extremities worn, corners rounded. Occasional small chips in margins of plates and first few leaves of text. Else very good. In a modern cloth box, leather label. First edition of this rare color plate book recording the uniform and dress of the mid-19th-century United States Army. This work was published by William H. Hortsmann and Sons, "military furnishers" of Philadelphia; established in 1815, they were the country's leading military outfitters throughout the 19th century and well into the 20th. The plates, drawn by G.C. Humphries, were presumably used by Hortsmann, in conjunction with the text, to explain to customers what they were entitled to wear, the official nature of the work being emphasized by the facsimile endorsements on each plate by the Adjutant General. The attractive plates are ably executed in lithography by P.S. Duval, one of the leading lithographic printers of the time. They consist of five chromolithographic images showing nineteen full-length views of various ranks and regiments within the U.S. Army; followed by sixteen plates of details of uniforms (four partially or completely handcolored); two plates of swords; and ending with colored plates of "horse furniture." The text reprints the relevant regulations concerning the dress code for officers and enlisted men, including members of the topographical engineers, dragoons, and cadets. Not in Bennett or McGrath. COLAS 2520. SABIN 68957 (an apparent variant, with all 25 plates colored). HOWES R155.

        THE FIRST TRIAL & EXECUTION IN S. FRANCISCO ON THE NIGHT OF 10th OF JUNE AT 2 O'CLOCK...[caption title]

      San Francisco: Lith. & Publ. by Justh, Quirot & Co., 1851. Pictorial letter sheet, 8 1/4 x 10 3/4 inches, on white wove paper. Old folds. Small closed tear along one fold in lower margin, with no loss. Four small holes at cross-folds. Very good. A striking and rare California pictorial letter sheet, depicting the first act of violence of the Vigilance Committee - the execution of the "Sydney Duck," John Jenkins. The so-called Sydney Ducks were a gang of Australian convicts who committed a number of arsons and robberies in San Francisco. Their activities, and the seeming inability of the legal authorities to stop them, were among the factors leading to the establishment of the first Vigilance Committee on June 9, 1851. The remainder of the printed caption tells the story: "John Jenkins, a Sidney [sic] man entered the store of Mr. V on long Wharf in the evening of 10th of June & carried off a sale. After he was captured he was brought to the corner of Sansome & Bush Sts. where he was tried by a jury of the highest respectability, and condemned to be hung. The execution took place on the Plaza on the same night at 2 o'clock. Immediately after sentence of death was passed upon him, he was asked if he had anything to say. He replied: No, I have nothing to say, only I should wish to have a cigar & brandy & water, which was given him." This moody lithographic illustration is done in an almost impressionistic style, with dark clouds obscuring the moonlit night, crowds of shadowy, cheering on- lookers, and Jenkins' body hanging from a rafter that forms part of a large cross at one end of the Custom House. "No series of events attracted greater attention than the workings of the 1851 and 1856 vigilance committees" - Kurutz (in the introduction to the Clifford Collection). This letter sheet was produced by Justh, Quirot & Co., one of the first and most important lithographic firms in San Francisco. It was printed on blue wove, gray wove, and white wove paper. The present example, printed on white wove paper, is the rarest of the three, with Baird locating only one copy, in a private collection. A vivid depiction of violence and justice on the Barbary Coast. BAIRD, CALIFORNIA'S PICTORIAL LETTER SHEETS 79. CLIFFORD LETTER SHEET COLLECTION 73. PETERS, CALIFORNIA ON STONE, pp.133, plate 66.

      Imprimerie Nationale "Imprimerie Nationale ""Paris, 1851, in-4 cartonnage à la bradel plein papier, VIII-410pp. Comprend : Note préliminaire / Projet de code de la justice maritime : I. De la police et de la Justice. 1. de la discipline et de la police. 2. De la justice. / II. des peines. 1. des peines disciplinaires. 2. Des peines correctionnelles et criminels. / III. Des crimes, des délits et de leurs punitions. IV. Dispositions spéciales aux condamnés aux fers et aux travaux forcés détenus dans les établissements de la Marine. / Rapport de la Commission pour exposer les motifs du projet / Annexes au rapport. Cette commission décidée par le Ministre de la marine, le contre-amiral Romain-Desfossées est composée de la manière suivante : vice-amiral Casy, président ; Isambert, conseiller à la cours de cassation ; Rieff, directeur des affaires criminelles au ministère de la justice ; Hautefeuille, avocat au Conseil d'Etat ; De Chenier, chef du bureau de la législation au ministère de la guerre ; De Gueydon, capitaine de vaisseau ; Chopart, idem ; Comte, greffier au tribunal maritime de Toulon ; Girette, chef du bureau des archives au ministère de la Marine ; Pouyer. Hautefeuille a été désigné pour être le rapporteur de la Commission. Par une décision du 2 avril 1850, M. le Ministre a nommé membre de la commission : M.

Le 1er avril, elle le remet à lamiral Vaillant, successeur de Romain-Desfossés, qui, entre temps, a quitté le ministère. Vaillant donne son autorisation pour limpression du projet, en vue dune diffusion restreinte (440 exemplaires seulement, alors que les publications officielles du ministère de la Marine sont diffusées à 5 000 exemplaires). Vaillant à son tour cède la place à Chasseloup-Laubat ; cest donc ce dernier qui va examiner le travail de la commission, avec, dailleurs, une grande attention, comme en témoigne lexemplaire annoté et parafé de sa main conservé aux archives. Le projet en restera là. Personne ne semble vraiment enthousiaste à lidée de remanier le texte dans le sens des propositions de Chasseloup-Laubat, à commencer par Casy, qui, devenu président du Conseil des travaux, est désormais à dautres activités. Le coup de grâce est donné à la fin de lannée 1851 par Hippolyte Fortoul, devenu ministre de la Marine au sein du gouvernement dirigé par Saint-Arnaud quelques semaines avant le coup dÉtat : la diffusion du projet est interdite, et les exemplaires imprimés mis au pilon, sauf quelques-uns qui seront archivés.""""Jean-Philippe Zanco , « Autour du Code de justice maritime (1858-1965) », Revue historique des armées, 252 | 2008.

        [Marine].

      Paris, Londres. Goupil et Cie, Editeurs, Imp. Lemercier à Paris. [1851]. 1851 1 vol. in-4° oblong (240 x 320 mm.) de : 36 planches lithographiées et aquarellées. Cartonnage ancien. Rare ensemble de gravures aquarellées représentant des scènes maritimes normandes du début du 19ème siècle dû à Charles Mozin (Paris 1806 - Trouville 1862). Cette très belle suite publiée en six livraisons de six planches (toutes signées dans la planche à l'exception de 2 : 17 et 26), donne une vision fidèle de la vie du littoral normand au 19ème siècle. Charles Mozin, né dans une famille de musiciens, se destina rapidement à la peinture et suivit l'enseignement de Xavier Leprince. Il découvrit Trouville en 1825, et tomba amoureux de cette côte, comme en témoigne son installation dans cette ville ainsi que son élection au conseil municipal en 1843. C'est également un homme d'affaires, qui est à l'origine de la maison d'Estampe Goupil (qui imprima la présente suite), d'abord "Rittner & Goupil" en 1829 des noms des deux associés que Mozin présenta. Peintre, aquarelliste, graveur et illustrateur, ses tableaux sont conservés dans de prestigieuses collections, parmi lesquelles : le Château de Versailles, le Musée de Trouville, le Musée Eugène-Boudin de Honfleur, le Musée Carnavalet de Paris, le Musée des Augustins de Toulouse, le Rijksmuseum d'Amsterdam, le Musée Ridder Smidt van Gelder d'Anvers ainsi qu'au Havre, à Toulon, à Rouen, à Dieppe, à Amiens, Saint-Malo, etc. Les trente-six scènes de cette suite, joliment aquarellées et bien documentées (le peintre travaillait en utilisant des maquettes de bateaux pour plus de précision), permettent de suivre la vie des petites gens qui vivaient de la mer, la construction de différents types d'embarcations, des scènes de pêche, de modestes habitations faites de barques, l'entretien des bateaux et des filets, etc. Bel exemplaire. 1 vol. oblong 4to. 36 lithographed and watercolored plates. Ancient boards. Very rare set of watercolored engravings featuring maritime scenes in Normandy at the beginning of the 19th century, by Charles Mozin (1806-1862). It was published in 6 parts of 6 plates. The 36 scenes, nicely hand-colored and very well documented (Mozin worked with ships model to be more precise), give an idea of the life of these people who made a living from the sea, accurate depiction of various ships, fishing scenes, etc. Fine copy. Manque à Polak et au Supplément, Polak donne seulement : 6917, "Croquis de Marine", Rittner et Goupil, 1841, 22 lithographies teintées.

        The Works of John Milton in Verse and Prose; With a Life of the Author by The Rev. John Mitford

      London - William Pickering, 1851 Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. A beautifully bound set of Pickering'sdecoratedcompleteWorks of John Milton,including verse, prose, and a life of the author. Bound by Hayday, with his bookbinder's stamp to the front free endpapers. With a facsimile of the Agreement between Milton and Symonds, and plate of the 'Pedigree of Milton'. This is widely thought of as the finest set by Pickering, and is often found in particularly fine bindings as a result. This set is an excellent example. John Milton, was an English poet, author, polemicist and civil servant for the Commonwealth of England. He is best known for his epic poem Paradise Lost, included here in the second volume. He was a scholarly man of letters, a polemical writer, and an official serving under Oliver Cromwell. He wrote at a time of religious and political flux in England, and his poetry and prose reflect deep convictions. As well as English, he wrote in Latin and Italian, and had an international reputation during his lifetime. John Mitford was an English literary scholar, and Church of England clergyman. As well as clerical duties, Mitford contributed articles to theGentlemans Magazine, and became the editor of its new series in 1834. Mitford was an indefatigable student of the Greek and Roman classics, and was well acquainted with the principal French, German, and Italian authors. He was well read in English literature, and was an ardent lover of painting. Amongst other literary efforts, Mitford edited numerous works in Pickerings Aldine editions, and in 1851 Mitford edited in eight volumesThe Works of Milton in Verse and Prose, and wrote for it a memoir, expanded from that in the 1832 edition of Milton's poems. (DNB)Collated: complete. Condition: In full morocco Hayday signed bindings, with gilt borders and titles. Externally excellent with just a little rubbing to the heads and tails of the spines, and to the extremities. Each volume has a personal bookplate to the front pastedown. The bookplate has often offset a little. Generally clean and bright throughout, and firmly bound. Overall: NEAR FINE.

        Photo ancienne albumine Java Indonésie Volcan Bromo

      Superbe photographie ancienne - Rare Bromo indonesian volcano old photo par le photographe Onnes Kurkdjian (1851-1903) Photographie du volcan fumant Bromo en Indonésie avec personnage de race blanche au premier plan. Dimensions : 18 x 10,5 cm montée sur carton fort 24 x 16,5 cm - Très bon état. Bon contraste. Papier albumine contrecollé. En haut de la photo a été écrit dans le tirage (avant tirage de la plaque de verre) quelques mots sur cette photo (inversés sur le tirage). On y lit qu'il s'agit du volcan Bromo photographié le 3 juin 1893 par O. Kurkdjian (le reste du texte n'a pu être déchiffré). Rare. Onnes Kurkdjian Viewmaker and EntrepreneurHedi HinzlerOnnes Kurkdjian was born in 1851 in Russia; he died in 1903 in Surabaya, Java. He was a professional photographer who was trained in Tbilisi, Moscow and Vienna, and like many Armenians of the time, he went to the east in search of work. He settled in Surabaya, a port town on the east end of Java, in 1884. From 1890 onwards his name is connected with a photographic atelier that, in its early period, was located at the Bultzingslowenplein. While Kurkdjian primarily made portrait studies of Europeans in and around Surabaya and of Javanese women, he also photographed tropical forests, trees and volcanos. Kurkdjian's photographic style was characterized by the use of larger-format cameras to produce images of great clarity. In many senses, his work looks like that of the typical professional studio photographer working at the turn of the century. His portraits were printed on a textured matte surface, while views and record photographs were printed on glossy surfaces that were frequently ferrotyped. Kurkdjian received commissions, but produced work for promotional purposes as well. One such example is the Queen s Album,which was made to commemorate Queen Wilhelmina's visit to Java on August 31, 1898. This album includes views of the parade preparations, the visit itself and much of the pomp and circumstance that surrounded it. The images were mounted into an elaborate and decorative velvet--covered, silver--stamped album that Kurkdjian produced as a presentation piece for the Queen. In 1897, Kurkdjian took on an English assistant, G. P. Lewis. When he was invited by the Dutch Government to photograph the eruption of the volcano Kelut on June 6,1901 (the initial eruption took place on May 23 of that year), his assistant made the famous photograph of Kurkdjian at work, standing behind his tripod-mounted camera. Because it was so cold in the mountainous area, Kurkdjian was clad as for a European winter. After 1900, Kurkdjian cooperated closely with his associate; the Kurkdjian Atelier changed its name to Kurkdjian, O. & Co. Limited, and moved into new quarters in Surabaya. After Kurkdjian's death in 1903, G. P. Lewis remained in charge; and, in 1904, the Atelier became a "Company for the Exploitation of the Photographic Atelier Kurkdjian." In 1915, the Company was taken over by the pharmaceutical importers Mieling & Co. Portraits were the primary business of the studio after Kurkdjian's death, but views were also made. During the period from 1914 to 1917, while World War I was raging in Europe, Eastman Kodak Company, of Rochester, New York, became the primary supplier of photographic goods in the archipelago. While the number of professional photographic studios grew slowly, the use of photographic equipment by amateurs increased exponentially. Atelier Kurkdjian was Kodak's sole agent in East Java, and it thus provided developing, printing and enlarging services for many of the new users.

Louis van Houtte, Éditeur 1851 - 1852. In 8°gr., bella leg. coeva in mz. pelle verde con titoli e ricchi fregi impressi in oro sul dorso, piatti marmorizzati, pp.(4) - 410.; 92 magnifiche tavv. cromolitografate, 11 a doppia pagina, la tav. posta a p.25 non è stata stranamente conteggiata dall'editore, numerose inc. in legno nel testo. Ottimo e raro esemplare. Great Flower Books p.84, Nissen BBI, 2254. Stafleu & Cowan, 15921. L'opera completa, di questo eccezionale periodico di floricoltura belga, è  in 23 volume, per un totale di circa 2480 tavole cromolitografate. Spesso viene proposta  in tre parti (voll. I - X; XI - XV e XVI - XXIII), fra loro distinte per una diversa titolazione al frontespizio. Tra il 1845 e il 1880 quest'opera apparve sotto forma di rivista, inviata a collezionisti e floricoltori dal vivaista belga Louis van Houtte, fondatore di uno "Stabilimento" nei cui vivai si crearono bellissime varietà di fiori, che vennero apprezzate in tutta Europa, grazie anche alle stupende tavole che le ritraevano. L'attività ebbe un tracollo con la morte di van Houtte. Comunque nei 40 anni circa di vita della rivista poterono cimentarsi valenti litografi belgi. I nomi di Severeyns, Stroobant e Pannemaker sono diventati giustamente famosi. Tutte le tavole dei primi dieci volumi, dei quale il nostro volume fa parte, vennero stampate da Stroobant. A nostro avviso i primi 10 volumi sono i migliori della serie. L'incertezza nel numero delle tavole nasce dal fatto che quelle doppie e quelle quadruple vengono rispettivamente  conteggiate come due tavv. e quattro tavv., ciò rispondendo alle intenzione dell'editore. Quest'ultimo però  non sempre rispetta la regola che si è imposto e conteggiava come singola una tavola doppia o, come se non bastasse, inserisce nella numerazione delle tavole a colori anche quelle litografate al bistro, che in linea   di massima ne sono escluse.

        MEMOIRS OF THOMAS DIXON, KNIGHT OF THE ORDER OF THE LILY IN FRANCE AND KNIGHT OF THE ORDER OF THE NETHERLANDS LION. Written by Himself. Circa 1834 [manuscript title].

      Boston. . 1851 - 202pp. Approximately 28,000 words written in a highly legible hand. Contemporary calf, rebacked, tooled in gilt on spine and cover. Boards lightly stained; rubbed at extremities. Quite clean internally. Very good. Memoirs of the Chevalier Thomas Dixon (1781- 1849), a copy of the original manuscript, made for Thomas Dixon's son, B. Homer Dixon, in 1851. Thomas Dixon's life reads like a wonderful novel or adventure story, with one incredible event following another. Born in England, Dixon's father moves his family to Ostend, Flanders in 1786. As a boy he witnesses the exploits of the French Republican Army in Tournay, where he is at school. He mentions off-handedly that his mother foils an Irish plot against King George III. His memoir gives details of quite a lot of the tumultuous history of the time, both on the Continent and in England, including the Napoleonic Wars. Having moved to Holland and become a clerk at a merchant house there, Dixon eventually becomes a partner and is quite successful. In 1810, Napoleon visits the town of Flushing, where Dixon lives in Holland, and, as a member of the Bureau of Commerce and Magistracy in Flushing, he is among the deputation sent out to greet Napoleon. Later that night he is arrested for undisclosed reasons and taken to Paris, where he is kept in secret confinement. Despite repeated attempts, he is never told why he is being held, and he is never questioned about anything - though he was, at one point, poisoned, unsuccessfully. King Louis Napoleon, before ceding Holland to his brother the Emperor and abdicating his throne, enquires after Dixon to the Minister of Police in Paris and finds "'that the arrest of Mr. Dixon and eight others as hostages was a political act of the Emperor himself and that the Police had no cognizance of it.'" Thus it is that Dixon finds himself among a group referred to as the Dutch Hostages. He and the others are finally released after fifteen months of incarceration, due to the influence and pleading of Dixon's powerful friends in both Holland and France, though with the condition that the Dutch Hostages go into exile in Burgundy. After a time he returns home to Holland, in May 1814, where he is reinstated in the Magistracy of Flushing and as a Member of the Chamber of Commerce by King of the Netherlands. He resigns as magistrate, however, gallantly handing the King his resignation across the table at a dinner party. Dixon resolves to leave the Continent and return to his native England; he finds, though, that he is very coldly received and a stranger in his native land. He therefore returns to Holland and again becomes a partner in a merchant firm there. He fatefully decides to visit business correspondents in the United States, where he tours the country as far south as Savannah and, while in Boston in 1818, he meets and marries his wife. Upon returning home he receives word that he is to meet the Comte d'Artois at the French Court, with whom he became acquainted while in exile. He and his new wife travel to the French Court in Paris and meet the Comte and the King. They spend three happy years in Amsterdam before being relocated to Boston by the merchant firm. Later notes indicate that Dixon became a United States citizen in 1833, and was appointed Consul for the Netherlands at Boston that same year. He died in Boston in 1849. Some more genealogical information follows. The manuscript is accompanied by a printed version of the MEMOIRS., undated but from the late 19th century. Nine pages of typescript genealogy are bound in with it, as well as many blank sheets for the expansion of the family history and genealogy. Descendants later became socially prominent in Philadelphia. This contemporary manuscript copy of his autobiography contains an 1851 presentation inscription from his older son, Thomas Henry Dixon, to his younger son, Fitz Eugene Dixon (1821-80). An incredible tale, Thomas Dixon's well written and highly readable account gives a full history of

        Chashiki kogetsu sho [trans.: Kogetsu's Tea Ceremony Styles].

      Many illus. in the text. Five vols. bound in ten. Small 8vo, orig. blue patterned wrappers, orig. block-printed title labels on upper covers (not present on the first volume), new stitching. Kyoto: 1851. First edition of this richly illustrated and detailed encyclopedic work on the Japanese tea ceremony; it was very influential in the late Edo period. The first two volumes contain a history of tea, a detailed history of the large and complicated Sen family of tea ceremony masters, the design the shelves which would hold tea ceremony utensils, and the general outline of each step of the tea ceremony. The next two volumes are devoted to tea boxes which would store the tea leaves, with a description of utensils used. Vols. 5 and 6 describe and illustrate the ornamental stoves for preparing the tea, the many kinds of tea bowls, tools for incense, and the containers for the tea powders. Vols. 7 and 8 discuss the kinds of canisters for tea, the hanging scrolls appropriate for tea ceremony rooms, vases for flowers, and the architecture of the tea room. The final two volumes give details on the style of decoration of the tea room, the fifty rules of "daisu" decoration (shelf and stand decoration), and the philosophy of the proper behavior of both hosts and guests ("one time, one meeting" ["ichi go ichi e"]). Nice set. Some minor worming to early leaves of the first volume, occasionally touching a character. Rare; WorldCat locates only a copy at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. There was a reprint in 1883. .
