        Life in Bombay, and the Neighbouring Out-stations

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1852. Octavo. Original pinkish morocco-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine stylised floral devices, "Oriental" panelling in gilt and blind to the front board, in blind to the back, pale cream endpapers with advertisements. Two-tint lithographed frontispiece and eleven other similar plates, woodcut to the text, ad. leaf for Bentley's Railway Library bound in before the half-title. Somewhat rubbed, now sympathetically restored on the spine and at the corners, hinges neatly repaired, light browning throughout the plates somewhat more so and with some off-setting to the text, small piece torn from the lower corner of the title page, no loss of text, a very good copy. First edition. Uncommon, just 7 locations on COPAC - BL, NLS, Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh, SOAS and V & A. "The public has been so long accustomed to contemplate India, either through the magic glass of imagination, as the land of gorgeous palaces and inexhaustible treasures, or through the scarcely less deceptive halo of military glory as the battle-field of contending armies and opposing dynasties; that we feel some serious misgivings, whilst we invite them to survey her with the natural eye, as she really is, in these sober days of peace, when the 'hurly-burly' of our battles lost and won has died away, and all that now is heard to remind us of them, is an occasional; shot resounding through the Khyber Pass, and re-echoed from the far-distant mountains of Affghanistan" (Preface). The author is no doubt sincere, but slightly premature, in his desire to offer a comprehensive view of the Bombay presidency as part of a perfectly pacified India. An excellent descriptive and visual record of the period. Armorial bookplate of John Cornwall and booklabel of John Wolfran Cornwall (1870-1947) to the front pastedown. John Wolfran Cornwall was born in Dehra, India and attended Trinity College, Cambridge, obtaining a BA in 1891 and a MB, BC and MA in 1895. He took his MD in 1900. Cornwall entered the Indian Medical Service in 1896 and rose to the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. He served as Professor of Hygiene at Madras Medical College, Chennai, India, from 1903-1906, and director of the Pasteur Institute of India, Coonoor, Tamil Nadu, India, from 1906 until his retirement in 1926. In 1927 he was awarded a CIE. The engraved armorial bookplate could belong to either his grandfather, Rear Admiral John Cornwall (1795-1870) or of his uncle John Cornwall (1826-1860). Inked ownership inscription of Augusta Wilder, née Smith, to the front pastedown. An attractive and pleasingly-provenanced copy.

        THE STORY OF NELL GWYN AND THE SAYINGS OF CHARLES II

      London: Bradbury & Evans, 1852. First Edition in Book Form n. Hardcover. 194 x 127 mm (7 5/8 x 5"). Two volumes. First Edition in Book Form. VERY PRETTY BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT, BY ZAEHNSDORF (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), covers with a frame comprising plain and decorative gilt rules, an inlaid maroon morocco strap, and ornate gilt cornerpieces of many small floral tools on a stippled background, raised bands, spines densely gilt in compartments with floral branches radiating from a central circle, the background stippled and with small circlets, delicate floral frame on turn-ins, leather hinges, olive and gold silk jacquard endleaves, top edges gilt. EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED WITH 179 ENGRAVED PLATES, most of them portraits, others being views of palaces or London street scenes (the plates listed alphabetically on printed leaves following the Table of Contents, this listing obviously prepared either for this copy alone or else for a very limited number of copies). Front pastedowns with engraved armorial bookplate of Thomas McKean. A small nick to one board, otherwise just a hint of use to the attractive, lustrous, and scarcely worn bindings; the majority of inserted plates foxed (two dozen of them noticeably so), variable offsetting from engraved material, otherwise excellent internally. This is a very attractively bound and extensively extra-illustrated copy of the biography of Eleanor ("Nell") Gwyn (1650-87), an orange-seller and actress who became the most famous of Charles II's mistresses. Despite being illiterate, she was a successful comedienne, and she meant so much to the king that he is reported to have said on his deathbed, "Don't let poor Nelly starve." She died of apoplexy only two years after the king. Cunningham's account originally appeared in "The Gentleman's Magazine" in 1851 and then was published for the first time in book form by Bradbury & Evans in 1852. Born in Pest, Hungary, Joseph Zaehnsdorf (1816-86) served his apprenticeship in Stuttgart, worked at a number of European locations as a journeyman, and then settled in London, where he was hired first by Westley and then by Mackenzie before opening his own workshop in 1842. His son and namesake took over the business at 33, when the senior Joseph died, and the firm flourished under the son's leadership, becoming a leading West End bindery. Over the years, Zaehnsdorf employed a considerable number of distinguished binders, including the Frenchman Louis Genth (who was chief finisher from 1859-84), and trained a number of others, including Roger de Coverly and Sarah Prideaux. A family-run business until 1947, the Zaehnsdorf bindery continued to produce consistently attractive, tasteful, and innovative designs executed with unfailing skill.

Memoria sobre el estado del reino de Grecia remitida á fines de 1834 al Excmo. Sr. primer Secretario de Estado y del Despacho.- Cubiertas mudas de papel de aguas, protegidas por un forro de papel vegetal. Sin desbarbar. Pequeña rasgadura en portada reparada con cello. Mancha de humedad en el cuarto inferior de las últimas cincuenta páginas de la segunda parte.- // La obra de Sinibaldo de Más es tan inclasificable como el propio Sinibaldo: alumno aventajado en lenguas hasta provocar la admiración de Félix Torres Amat antes de haber cumplido 20 años, llegó a manejar una veintena de ellas, proponiendo una nueva métrica para la poesía en castellano a partir de una teoría sobre la música de esa lengua, mostrando su eficacia traduciendo a su compás la 'Eneida' y el 'Ars poetica' de Virgilio. Viajero en Grecia, Egipto, Arabia, India, China y Filipinas, ejerció, primero por vocación y luego por encargo, de informante sobre la situación socioeconómica de los países por los que iba pasando [la amistad con Torres Amat le acercó a Martínez de la Rosa, buen lingüista, que llegaría a encargarle (cfr. I, p. 6-8) que aprovechase su paso por la India para informarse sobre el sánscrito,y tener en cuenta al pasar por Egipto y Arabia lo recogido en los viajes de Niebuhr y de Bruce (1)]. Mas remitió desde Grecia un informe sobre su situación alabado todavía hoy por su calidad, publicó en inglés en una revista de Calcuta un detallado informe el sistema egipcio que había visto para el empolle de los huevos de gallina (que permitía multiplicar la producción), y mantuvo al día al gobierno (hasta ser nombrado consul) de la situación en Shangai y de los problemas existentes en Filipinas. Con el tiempo volvió a China como embajador y fruto del encuentro con su escritura pictográfica, publicó en francés en Macao una memoria proponiendo una escritura ideográfica común para todas las lenguas, acreditando su eficacia con la transcripción de textos del inglés, alemán, euskera, indí, tágalo, turco, japonés o del latín, entre otras. A tantas aficiones Mas añadía la poesía dramática y la caligrafía, para la que publicó sendas artes de letra española y letra inglesa en 1860, después de haberse desvivido por promover la unión 'legal y pacífica' de España y Portugal, con una obra que tuvo 3 ediciones en portugués y 5 en castellano, la última en 1868. La primera versión de estas 'Obras literarias', titulada 'Pout-pourri literario', tuvo dos partes impresas una en Manila, 1845, y la otra en Madrid, Ribadeneyra, 1846. El cambio del lugar de impresión, debido al regreso de Mas a España, ha dado lugar a que se hable de dos ediciones, una filipina y otra española, sin que sea así. Esta reedición de 1852, de nuevo en dos partes (que en este ejemplar se encuentran reunidas) presenta la peculiaridad de que el cuerpo de la segunda parte incorpora ejemplares de restos de ediciones de algunos de los textos compilados.- // (1) Véanse nuestras refs.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JOSEPH SIRE TO PIERRE CHOUTEAU REGARDINGCOMPETITION IN THE FUR TRADE].

      St. Louis. May 6, 1852. - [2]pp. plus integral address leaf. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Very minor soiling. Docketed on verso. Near fine. Manuscript letter written in French, from Joseph Sire, Pierre Chouteau's agent in St. Louis, enclosing returns from his agents in the field (not present), and commenting on the low volume of furs being brought in by competitors and also by Honore Picotte, Chouteau's agent in Fort Pierre. Sire started out in the fur trade as a river boat captain on the Missouri River. He had been with the Chouteau firm - a massive fur trading outfit, originally based in St. Louis - since the 1830s and was married to Pierre Chouteau's cousin. In the letter, he mentions that he and John B. Sarpy, another partner and family member by marriage, would be willing to withdraw from the company; they were both getting older at this time, and both would die within the next six years, Sire in 1854. A partial translation reads, "It would seem that our opponents must be doing a very weak trade . I cannot comprehend how, if Picotte has made only 900 packs in the district of Fort Pierre he will collect a total of 4000 packs, and our opponents only 1500.I don't count on more than 75 to 80,000 [buffalo] robes against 93,000 last year. . I would very much like to count on the [balance sheet] of CM&S [Chouteau, Merle & Sanford) provided that it be correct. Sarpy and I count on quickly receiving a definitive answer concerning our interest in New York. We consent to withdraw, but we would very much want to know exactly what the time of our discontinuation is." Though Chouteau spoke and wrote English, his first language was French and he preferred to do all of his correspondence in French. Chouteau, Merle & Sanford, mentioned in Sire's letter, was another of Chouteau's many companies, in partnership with John F.A. Sanford, his son-in-law. Sanford's sister, Irene Sanford Emerson, was the wife of Dr. John Emerson, owner of the slave Dred Scott; upon Emerson's death, Sanford became the defendant in that landmark case. Sunder, John E.

        Port of Auckland, New Zealand. Sailing Directions, compiled by Thomas Kerr, Esq., Master of Her Majesty's Surveying Vessel Pandora

      Auckland:: Williamson & Wilson,. 1852.. First printing. Good + overall. Although the publication of this 4 page, locally printed, sailing directions for Auckland was advertised in the "New Zealander", it does not appear that the actual pamphlet is held by the National Library of New Zealand. See " The New Zealander ", Volume 8, Issue 687, 13 November 1852, Page 2 (See http://natlib.govt.nz/records/2981616 for newspaper reference.) No copies on OCLC. It wasn?'t until the 1840s, some years after New Zealand had been settled by British colonials, that the Port of Auckland was officially established. Shortly after the Treaty of Waitangi was signed in 1840, Capt. William Hobson,(Lieut. Governor of the new British colony), selected Auckland as the first post-treaty capital specifically because of its potential as a port. Auckland was chosen in order to satisfy the urgent need to establish a suitable capital and trading center. In spite of unsatisfactory wharf facilities located on large tidal mud flats, the township quickly expanded into a center for maritime trade. The detailed survey (the "Great Survey") of the New Zealand coast began in 1848 with the HMS Acheron, a steam paddle sloop under Captain Stokes, and the HMS Pandora under Captain Drury, and continued until 1856 when Britain recalled the ships. Much specific and useful information is included in the circular making Auckland a much safer harbor: "easiness of approach", tides, making land, descriptions of islands and island groups, channels, rocks, buoy locations, and capes. 8vo, 9 x 11 1/2", 4pp, folded. Elaborately printed with at least 8 different type fonts and wide margins. A few short splits at original folds, not affecting text. Obviously used with contemporary folds and period ink written title on one of the folds along with the words "beads" and "shot ", both with what looks like a price. There are also some penciled numbers that seem to be used for an addition. Not found in Trove.

        [EXTENSIVE RUN OF UTAH TERRITORIAL LAWS FROM THE INCORPORATION OF THE TERRITORY IN 1851 THROUGH 1878]

      Salt Lake City. 1852-1878.. Twenty volumes, detailed below. 20th-century cloth, gilt leather labels. Light to moderate wear and soiling, a few volumes with stained cloth, chipped labels. Institutional stamps on titlepages. Some light soiling and dampstaining. Good. A remarkable and nearly complete run of the early session laws of the Utah Territory, encompassing a number of early Salt Lake City imprints. The volume for the first session is, of course, the first collection of Utah Territory laws. It includes interesting statutes related to ranching, for example concerning brand books and enclosures. The acts of the fourth session did not appear separately, but is found only in the 1855 Acts, published in Great Salt Lake City by Joseph Cain, 1855, and present in this run. These volumes contain a wealth of information on Brigham Young and other Mormon pioneers, the incorporation of cities and counties, the building of roads, the establishment of industry, and all aspects of Utah life of the period. The laws encompass the founding of the territory, the Mormon War, the Civil War period, and the coming of the transcontinental railroad in 1869. The volumes are as follows: 1) ACTS, RESOLUTIONS, AND MEMORIALS, PASSED BY THE FIRST ANNUAL, AND SPECIAL SESSIONS, OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY, OF THE TERRITORY OF UTAH, BEGUN AND HELD AT GREAT SALK LAKE CITY, ON THE 22nd DAY OF September 2) ACTS AND RESOLUTIONS PASED AT THE SECOND ANNUAL SESSION OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF THE TERRITORY OF UTAH....

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JOSEPH SIRE TO PIERRE CHOUTEAU, REGARDING COMPETITION IN THE FUR TRADE]

      St. Louis. May 6, 1852.. [2]pp. plus integral address leaf. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Docketed on verso. Old fold lines. Very minor soiling. Near fine. Manuscript letter written in French, from Joseph Sire, Pierre Chouteau's agent in St. Louis, enclosing returns (not present) from his agents in the field, and commenting on the low volume of furs being brought in by competitors as well as by Honore Picotte, Chouteau's agent in Fort Pierre. Sire started out in the fur trade as a river boat captain on the Missouri River. He had been with the Chouteau firm - a massive fur trading outfit, originally based in St. Louis - since the 1830s and was married to Pierre Chouteau's cousin. In the letter he mentions that he and John B. Sarpy, another partner and family member by marriage, would be willing to withdraw from the company; they were both getting older at this time, and both would die within the next six years, Sire in 1854. A partial translation reads: "It would seem that our opponents must be doing a very weak trade...I cannot comprehend how, if Picotte has made only 900 packs in the district of Fort Pierre he will collect a total of 4000 packs, and our opponents only 1500....I don't count on more than 75 to 80,000 [buffalo] robes against 93,000 last year....I would very much like to count on the [balance sheet] of CM&S [Chouteau, Merle & Sanford) provided that it be correct. Sarpy and I count on quickly receiving a definitive answer concerning our interest in New York....We consent to withdraw, but we would very much want to know exactly what the time of our discontinuation is...." Though Chouteau spoke and wrote English, his first language was French and he preferred to do all of his correspondence in French. Chouteau, Merle & Sanford, mentioned in Sire's letter, was another of Chouteau's many companies, in partnership with John F.A. Sanford, his son-in-law. Sanford's sister, Irene Sanford Emerson, was the wife of Dr. John Emerson, owner of the slave, Dred Scott; upon Emerson's death, Sanford became the defendant in that landmark case. John E. Sunder, THE FUR TRADE ON THE UPPER MISSOURI, 1840-1865 (University of Oklahoma Press, 1965).

        The History of the National Flag

      Philadelphia: Lippincott, Grambo & Co, 1852. First Edition. Engraved portrait of Major-General Winfield Scott, 3 chromolithographic plates of flags by Duval, plus 5 extra portraits & a cloth flag with 'American Republicans' on banner tipped in. viii, [13]-115, [blank] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Half contemporary morocco and marbled boards, with gilt flags on spine. VG. Bookplate of Thomas Francis Donnelly. First Edition. Engraved portrait of Major-General Winfield Scott, 3 chromolithographic plates of flags by Duval, plus 5 extra portraits & a cloth flag with 'American Republicans' on banner tipped in. viii, [13]-115, [blank] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. This scarce work was written by Alexander Hamilton's grandson and is an enquiry into the origin of the Stars and Stripes. It seems that most copies came with the additional title page dated 1853 bound in as well as the three colored plates. This copy has five extra portraits tipped in (George Washington, Israel Putnam, William Moultrie, Benjamin Franklin and Elias Boudinot) but of much greater interest is the cloth flag opposite page 80, which features an eagle surrounded by twenty-five stars along with the thirteen stripes, within which "American Republicans." is printed. It is almost certainly piece of political paraphernalia for the 1840 or 1844 Presidential election when there were just 26 states in the union. Sabin states that the book should have 15 colored plates, but none of the copies listed on OCLC or that have appeared at auction have more than three and he is surely mistaken.

        The City and Harbour of Sydney from near Vaucluse

      London: Thomas Boys Lith. Published by J. Hogarth, [and] Sydney, Messrs. Woolcott & Clarke, 1852. Tinted lithograph with additional hand-colouring, 315 x 550 mm, on sheet 440 x 680 mm; in good condition, framed. George French Angas (1822-86) was one of the most accomplished artists to live in mid-nineteenth century Australia. After extensive travel throughout Australia, New Zealand and England, he settled in Sydney, and from 1853 to 1860 held the position of secretary to the Australian Museum. Angas painted in the picturesque tradition and provided faithful visual records of "countries with which the people of England are still but only imperfectly acquainted", as he noted in the catalogue to his London Exhibition of 1846.Angas's fine view of Sydney Harbour was taken from the lofty vantage point of Vaucluse. It shows a group of local Aborigines with a dingo in the foreground set amidst a faithful rendering of the local flora including the waratah and banksia, which are named. The sweep of harbour includes a number of colonial landmarks, from Captain Piper's villa at Point Piper and Government House through to Bradley's Head, with the Blue Mountains in the distance. Angas made a number of watercolours of Sydney and it was after one of these that this colour lithograph was made in 1852. When it was issued it was "favourably reviewed in both the Sydney Morning Herald (14 March 1853) and the Freeman's Journal (17 March)..." (Christine Dixon in J. Kerr, The Dictionary of Australian Artists).This lithograph of Sydney Harbour satisfies both the topographical obligation and Angas's own quest for the picturesque - "his ardent admiration for the grandeur and loveliness of nature...", as he described it in one of his books titled Savage Life and Scenes.

Their son Lorenzo Lewis married Esther Maria Lewis (E.M. Lewis) and George Washington Lewis (1829-1885) was their son. G.W. Lewis's grandmother E.P. Lewis was Martha Washington's granddaughter.ACCOMPANIED BY:Four ornately monogrammed linen handkerchiefs owned by the great niece of Martha Washington's sisters, Anna Maria and Elizabeth, with impeccable family provenance.These monogramed linen handkerchiefs were part of lot 2134 of the February 5, 2010, James D.

        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 (125 × 183). Bound by Baytun in near-contemporary dark blue half calf, blue cloth sides, twin labels to spines lettered gilt, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Wood-engraved frontispieces with tissue guards, vignette half-titles, 116 vignettes in text. Spines darkened and rubbed, joints cracked at spine ends but text block tight, front hinge of Vol. II cracked but holding, tips a little worn, a little light foxing to contents. A very good 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).

As she was to comment in a letter of 1896, "My role in writing has ever been for the young. I rarely aspire to any higher style." quoted from DCB on-line. TPL 3316.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Weimar, 20. X. 1852. - 4 SS. 4to. "Hochverehrter Herr! Ich habe auf meine unwandelbare Verehrung und Liebe zu Ihnen, im Vertrauen zu Ihrer Zusage, Weimar und seinen Angehörigen zugethan bleiben zu wollen, einen Plan gebaut; vielmehr die Absicht eines mir persönlich unbekannten Kunstfreundes, Drobisch in Leipzig, unterstützen zu müssen geglaubt. Derselbe hat ein kleines Werk von mir, das ich an Professor Lobe dahin schickte, zufällig gesehen und so lieb gewonnen, daß er es der nächsten Todtenfeier Mozarts (5ten December) zu Grunde legen möchte. Bereits hat er dazu bei dem Regißeur der Leibziger Bühne mit Erfolg Schritte gethan. Ich wurde, in Folge davon, mit der Annahme des Manuscripts zur Darstellung - überrascht. Gleichzeitig sollte es an den Collegen H. Forst nach Prag unverzüglich geschickt werden. Auch in München, Salzburg und selbst in Wien hat der unermüdliche, mir wie gesagt, unbekannte Freund empfehlende Einleitungen gemacht. In Wien suchte er zu diesem Zwecke Herrn D. Laube auf, traf ihn aber nicht. Dagegen stimmte er, wie er mir schrieb, die Professoren am Conservatorium günstig dafür. - Ich glaubte deshalb ein Exemplar der kleinen melodramatischen Scene 'Da Ponte, der Dichter u. Freund Mozarts' selbst dort einschicken zu müssen und eventuell - Ihre mächtige bürgende - hier vielleicht einzige - Kunst dabei in Anspruch zu nehmen [.]". - Spuren waag- und senkrechter Mittenfaltung. Am unteren Rand der 1. Seite alte Sammlungsstempel (Graf Victor Wimpffen und La Roche).
