        American Notes for General Circulation [Two Volumes]

      Chapman and Hall. Hardcover. London, 1852. 8vo, green cloth, 308 + 306 pp. First edition, first issue, in a possibly later green cloth with morocco spine labels. With the bookseller ticket of Mitchell Booksellers of Old Bond St., suggesting possibly a bookseller binding. With yellow endpapers, as called for. An exceptionally preserved set in fine condition with minimal shelfwear. Edges of pages speckled. Points checked per Walter Smith's Charles Dickens in the Original Cloth. " Hardly less joyous were Dickens's reunions with his friends Forster, Macready, Maclise, Stanfield, and others but he soon had to buckle down to the writing of his promised American travel book. The furore over international copyright continued, fed by a circular letter Dickens wrote on the topic (on 7 July) which got into American newspapers alongside a forged letter in which he was maliciously represented as branding America a country of gross manners and squalid money-making. There was copious and vehement editorializing about this seemingly clear evidence of Dickens's snobbishness and ingratitude. Against this background he wrote his promised travel book for Chapman and Hall, American Notes, for General Circulation (2 vols.), which appeared on 19 October. In it Dickens praised many of America's public institutions but condemned the national worship of 'smartness' (that is, sharp practice), and attacked particularly the hypocrisy and venality of the American press. He also commented unfavourably on many aspects of American social life, notably the widespread habit of spitting in public, and, predictably, denounced slavery at some length. American Notes sold well but attracted little favourable comment in Britain (Macaulay deemed it 'at once frivolous and dull'; Collins, Critical Heritage, 124) and, unsurprisingly, it met with a very hostile reception in the American press." - Oxford DNB.

        Documentos relativos al proyecto de un ferro-carril entre Santiago i Valparaiso.

      Santiago de Chile, Imprenta de Julio Belin i Ca., February 1852. - Large 8°, disbound. Woodcut vignette of a railway car on title page. Light browning. In good to very good condition. Early manuscript foliation in ink. (1 l.), ii, 103 pp., many tables. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this outline for a railroad connecting Santiago and Valparaiso, Chile's most important seaport. The bulk of the document is a detailed report from Allan Campbell, who had worked on the line between Copiapó and the port of Caldera, the second railroad in South America (preceded only by the Demarara line in British Guiana). Campbell includes information on the route, required work, expenses, and projected traffic.According to the introduction, which is signed by Antonio Varas (one of President Montt's most trusted subordinates), the director of the project was to be William Wheelwright. Wheelwright had tried to get a contract to build the Santiago-Valparaiso line in 1842, but was unable to raise the money when the contract was granted seven years later. He turned instead to steamships, operating the Pacific Steam Navigation Company under a ten-year monopoly starting in 1840. After the monopoly ended, Wheelwright went on to build the fifty-mile Copiapó-Caldera line. When it went into operation in 1851, it was one of South America's few railroads of substantial length.The Santiago-Valparaiso railroad, begun as a joint government and private venture, encountered many delays and difficulties. Eventually the government bought out the private stockholders and entrusted the completion to Henry Meiggs, another American entrepreneur. The final section was completed in 1863.*** Briseño I, 116: calls for only 103 pp. On the Santiago-Valparaiso railroad, see Simon Collier, "Chile from Independence to the War of the Pacific," Cambridge History of Latin America III, 601.

This work is a vivid narrative of California mining life, issued at the height of the gold fever. It is particularly valuable for the attractive, accurate illustrations drawn by Cooper and lithographed by Cameron. Peters remarks: "Cooper has left us a pungent, graphic record of the long trip to and from the gold fields, of the young cities he found mushrooming there, of booming San Francisco and Sacramento, of the lovely vestiges of the mission-founding padres in early California, and of the actual life of the forty-niners, with its flavor of roughing it, humor, hope, and all the luring magic of the yellow streak."A lovely copy in its original publisher's gilt binding.Howes l300, "aa"; Cowan, p.390; Graff 2469; Flake 4880; Kurutz 395a; Hill, p.476; Peters, America on Stone, pp.130-31, 147; Peters, California on Stone, pp. 97,103-5; Sabin 40723; Wheat Gold Rush 125.

        Les Sept péchés capitaux. La Gourmandise.

      Bruxelles, Méline, Cans et Cie 1852 - in-16, [4]-236 pp., bradel demi-chagrin vert, fiilets dorés au dos, couverture verte imprimée conservée (rel. moderne). Qques petites rousseurs. Bon exemplaire. Ce discret opuscule forme une vraie rareté. En effet, avec le volume consacré à l'Avarice, tout aussi peu commun, il complète la grande série originale des Péchés capitaux d'Eugène Sue, qui comprend donc, en tout, six parties en 18 volumes, ainsi répartis : I. L'Orgueil (six volumes parus en 1848) ; II. L'Envie (4 volumes parus aussi en 1848) ; III. La Colère (deux volumes). - IV. La Luxure et la paresse (quatre volumes de 1849). - V. L'Avarice (un volume, paru en 1851 aussi chez Méline). - VI. La Gourmandise (notre texte, 1852, chez Méline). Comme l'explique Vicaire, si les deux derniers titres sont annoncés dans la Bibliographie de la France, il n'a jamais pu en trouver d'exemplaires. Effectivement, Sue ayant dû s'exiler en 1851 en Savoie pour son opposition au coup d'Etat, ses deux derniers titres ne parurent qu'en Belgique. Ils sont donc très difficile à trouver. Les Sept péchés capitaux sont considérés comme faisant partie des "romans sociaux" de la plume socialiste et feuilletoniste de Sue. Ce n'est qu'en 1880 que Jules Rouff rééditera toute la série en un seul volume. Vicaire VII, 692-694.

Begründung der noch heute fundamental geltenden Helmholtzschen Farbtheorie, die durch die Untersuchungen der Farbblindheit bestätigt wurde. Helmholtz's theory of colour vision. Herman von Helmholtz (1821-1894) modified fifthy years later Young's theory of color vision, stating that it depends on the set of retinal fibres corresponding to red, green, and violet. Bacon, Young, Hering, Goethe, and Rayleigh wrote on color vision.

        UNCLE TOM'S CABIN; OR, LIFE AMONG THE LOWLY

      Boston: John P. Jewett & Company, 1852. FIRST EDITION in book form, FIRST ISSUE (with all the issue points in BAL). Motivated by the fervent calling to rid America of slavery, Stowe (1811-96) suggested in March of 1851 to the editor of the abolitionist newspaper "The National Era" that he consider publishing a serialized story demonstrating the oppression and brutality of life as a slave. The proposal was accepted, and Stowe supplied 13 monthly installments, with publication concluding in April, 1852. The Boston publisher John P. Jewett negotiated with Stowe for publication rights in book form, and he brought out the novel even before the final two serialized installments appeared. The work had attained such popularity by the time it appeared as a book that copies from the initial press run of 5,000 were exhausted within a few days. Sales in America and in Britain were nothing short of phenomenal: 300,000 copies were sold during the first year in the US alone, and more than 20 pirated editions were printed in London during 1852. PMM notes that the novel "exploded like a bombshell" in the debate over slavery, and declares that "the social impact of 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' on the United States was greater than that of any book before or since." Our previous owner, George B. Goodwin, is likely the person of that name who lived 1834-86 in Wisconsin, where he was a lawyer, a member of the state assembly, and a colonel in the 41st Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment during the Civil War. This is an extremely difficult book to find in agreeable condition in publisher's cloth, and it would seem as if the present copy has to be among the best one could obtain.. 200 x 120 mm. (7 3/4 x 4 3/4"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION in book form, FIRST ISSUE (with all the issue points in BAL). Publisher's purple cloth (BAL binding B), gilt vignette on upper cover, smooth spine with gilt titling. With title page vignettes and six wood-engraved plates, as called for. Bookseller's ticket of Brooks, Salem, on front pastedowns; front flyleaf of volume I with pencil signature of Geo. B. Goodwin, and that of volume II with signature of Mrs. Nancy Goodwin. BAL 19343; PMM 332. Spines uniformly sunned, corners bumped and with cloth worn through in places, two tiny snags at spine ends, but the bindings completely tight and square, and the gilt vignettes on the covers still bright. One opening with light brown smears touching but not obscuring text, occasional small inoffensive spots or stains internally, but all of the defects entirely minor, and THE SET IN NEARLY FINE CONDITION INSIDE AND OUT, much more attractive than the usual copies in original cloth, almost always found cocked, with cracked joints, and/or significant foxing.

        Michaux and Nuttall's North American Sylva

      Philadelphia: Robert P. Smith, 1852. Early collected edition. Small quarto, six volumes. Bound in what appears to be the publisher's deluxe green morocco, with elaborate gilt tooling to spines and boards: borders of interwoven fillets, arabesques, and central illustration of a Jalap bindweed, six spine compartments, yellow endpapers, all page edges gilt. Near Fine. Some intermitant foxing throughout, mostly to the text pages and tissue guards, plates in lovely shape with bright coloring. The heel of Michaux volume 3 has been repaired, otherwise the bindings are in excellent shape and unrestored. Original yellow endpapers have some discoloration, as often. The first three volumes are authored by Michaux, with the full title, "The North American Sylva; or A Description of the Forest Trees of the United States, Canada, and Nova Scotia, Considered Particularly with Respect to Their Use in the Arts, and Their Introduction into Commerce, to Which is Added, a Description of the Most Useful of the European Forest Trees." The last three volumes were authored by Nuttall, as "The North American Sylva; or A Description of the Forest Trees of the United States, Canada and Nova Scotia, Not Described in the Work of F. Andrew Michaux, and Containing All the Forest Trees Discovered in the Rocky Mountains, the Territory of Oregon, Down to the Shores of the Pacific, and into the Confines of California, as Wells as in Various Parts of the United States." Michaux's original three volumes were a result of ten years of research, illustrated with 156 colored copperplate engravings by the Route brothers, Pierre Joseph and Henri Joseph, and Pancrace Bessa, and were generally considered the authoritative text in the field upon its publication. Nuttall added 127 plates for his three volumes, making the two works united one of the most complete works on the subject, unparalleled in its production, descriptions, and illustrations.

        Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds.

      London: Office of the National Illustrated Library,, 1852. Illustrated with numerous engravings. 2 volumes, octavo. Original brown blind-stamped cloth, gilt-lettered spines gilt decorated with thistles, roses and shamrocks, yellow endpapers carrying publisher's advertisements, top edges gilt. Wood-engraved frontispieces, vignette half-titles, 116 vignettes in text. Light wear to spine tips, occasional light foxing to contents. An excellent set. Second edition, and the first thoroughly illustrated one, following Bentley's 1841 first edition, which had only four plates over three volumes. An attractive copy in the original cloth of this important early work on popular delusions of all types, considering the credulous enthusiasm of mankind for phenomena such as alchemy, witchcraft, relics, the Crusades, urban myths, as well as economic events such as the tulip bubble. Still in print, Mackay's book has had a profound influence on economics and sociology, with many modern economists referring to his work when analysing the stock market bubbles of our own age. "Charles Mackay's passionate erudition and urbane, unaffected prose style contributed to make him one of the chief figures in the establishment of Victorian journalism as a dignified profession" (ODNB).

        Views in South America, from original drawings made in Brazil the River Plate, the Parana, &c

      Thomas McLean, London 1852 - Lithographed title, dedication to Prince Albert with list of plates on verso, 26 tinted lithographed plates, lithographed plan. Expertly bound to style in dark blue morocco backed period cloth covered boards, large central morocco label on the upper cover, flat spine lettered in gilt, glazed yellow endpapers and pastedowns Among the rarest lithographed view books concerning South America. "In 1823 Ousley was transferred to Rio as secretary, and in 1838 was promoted to charge d'affaires. He was sent on a mission to Uruguay and Argentina in 1844 and returned to England in 1850 . After he had returned to England, via the United States, he wished to publish a collection of drawings and watercolous of Brazil and the Rio de la Plata. The selection was made by Queen Victoria. This rare and valued album contains very pictureque lithographs" (Borba de Moraes). Published in 1852 and issued as tinted lithographs, like the present, for £4.4s, or hand coloured at £6.16s.6d, both issues are very rare. Unlike other lithographed plate books from this period, there was no deluxe issue on card. The list of plates cites the plan, 25 plates, plus one vignette (titled Serra de Estrella), though the vignette is in appearance no different than the other plates. Not in Abbey, attesting to the work's rarity. Borba de Moraes, p.643; Sabin 57947; Tooley 356; Palau 207325. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly.

      Boston: John P. Jewett & Co., 1852 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original purple vertical-fine-ribbed cloth, spines lettered in gilt, front cover vignette stamped in gilt, other decoration stamped in blind, cream endpapers. Housed in brick red quarter morocco, book-style drop back box, marbled boards, each volume in a brown linen chemise with morocco spine label. Spines faded as usual (the purple dye fugitive in light), a couple of minor chips at spine ends, a few marks to boards and occasionally internally, but an excellent unrestored copy in original condition. Title vignettes and 6 wood-engraved plates. Early pencilled ownership inscriptions of Mrs Ruth D Wilson to front blank of volume II. First edition of probably the most socially influential American book ever published. "Even before the publication of the serial [in the abolitionist newspaper The National Era] the Boston publisher John P. Jewett had expressed an interest in publishing [it] in book form. The two volumes, issued both in brown cloth and paper wrappers, appeared on 20 March 1852, two instalments before the conclusion of the serial in The National Era. The first printing of five thousand copies was exhausted in a few days and a second printing of the same size, indicated by 'ten thousand' on the title-page, was completely disposed of by the end of March. The sale of the book was indeed phenomenal In the emotion-charged atmosphere of mid-nineteenth-century America Uncle Tom's Cabin exploded like a bombshell the social impact of Uncle Tom's Cabin on the United States was greater than that of any book before or since" (PMM). It's international influence was summarised by by Charles Francis Adams, John Adam's grandson, who served as United States minister to the Court of St. James during the Civil War: "Uncle Tom's Cabin exercised, largely from fortuitous circumstances, a more immediate, considerable and dramatic world-influence than any other book ever printed" (Trans-Atlantic Historical Solidarity, p.79). An extremely well-preserved copy of this enduringly significant work. BAL 19343, binding B; Grolier American 100, 61; Printing and the Mind of Man 332 [Attributes: First Edition]
