Probable First Edition, later issue. Rare. MWV A18. Not in Hoboken or Hirsch. WorldCat (8 copies, 4 in North America: University of Toronto; Yale University; Westminster Choir College; Stanford University (no distinctions among issues). Dated according to addresses in imprint: Novello's address at 24 Poultry Street was current from 1845 to May 1856; the New York address on Broadway was used from August 1852 and no later than 1859 (see Humphries & Smith p. 246). Novello's edition supposedly precedes Breitkopf & Härtel's (first advertised in June 1841), but the present copy does not. Not to be confused with Novello's regular piano-vocal score (PN 1869), which was reprinted many times and in high print runs. "With the ‘LobgesangÂ’ Symphony, composed in 1840 and published as Symphony no.2 in 1841, Mendelssohn... produced a symphony extending into the realm of religious music. Also, by introducing texted elements into the work, he took up an equally daunting challenge, that of responding to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony... Mendelssohn's solution, as he explained to Klingemann, was to attempt a hybrid symphony-cantata: a three-movement, through-composed orchestral sinfonia attached to a nine-movement vocal cantata, with biblical texts celebrating mankind's progress from darkness to enlightenment (the agent of this process was the word of God, as disseminated by the Gutenberg Bible). Linking the symphony and cantata is a recurring motto-like intonation... initially announced by the trombones and then given verbal meaning in the cantata by the addition of the text ‘Alles was Odem hat, lobe den HerrnÂ’." R. Larry Todd in Grove Music Online.

        HORN'S OVERLAND GUIDE, FROM THE U.S. INDIAN SUB-AGENCY, COUNCIL BLUFFS, ON THE MISSOURI RIVER, TO THE CITY OF SACRAMENTO, IN CALIFORNIA

      New York, 1852. 16mo. Original cloth, stamped in blind and gilt. Cloth a bit faded and worn. Ex-Essex Institute Library, with their bookplate on front pastedown, blindstamp on titlepage, and paper label on spine. Front free endpaper torn. A few text leaves wrinkled or creased, faint tideline along lower edge of text leaves. Overall, in about very good condition. In a cloth clamshell box, gilt morocco label. One of two issues of the first edition of the "best handbook for the central route available at the time" (Howes). This is the issue with the "opinions of the press" on page 5, and the longer pagination of the main text. Hosea Horn was an Iowa lawyer who travelled the routes himself and produced this detailed overland guide, the most popular and best-known of its day. The text consists of a lengthy list of "Notable Places, Objects and Remarks" and follows the trail in a detailed, step-by- step fashion, with mileage charts, distance between places, etc. The map was executed by Colton and shows the entire central route, with all the cut-offs, marked in red. "Especial importance attaches to this work from the fact that it was one of the few guides which actually measured and described much of the route traversed. Horn had personally been over all the 'cut-offs' and he prepared what is possibly the most exact account of the 'Overland Trail' which has come down to us" - Eberstadt. "One of the best of the guides, as it is one of the few where the distances were closely measured" - Streeter.

        La Bourse de Copenhague.

      *** Børsen i København. Litografi. 18,5 x 28 cm. Trykt i Paris af Imp. Lemercier, Benard et Companie, 55 rue de Seine. [ Litografiet kommer fra værket "Pittoresk Resetour från Stockholm till Neapel", 1852]. Indrammet med passepartout i ægte guldramme (Brock Rammehåndværk). Rammen måler 34,5 x 48 cm. Fint eksemplar. - Børsen med det karakteristiske spir. Foran Børsen er et detailleret billede af folkelivet på havnen samt skuder, der bringer varer til hovedstaden.. Børsen er en af de ældste bygninger i København, opført i årene 1619-40. Børsen blev opført som en kornbørs, der kunne modtage skibslaster fra begge sider af bygningen og lade kornet hejse op til 1. sal og på loftet. I stuen indrettedes boder for handlende med direkte adgang fra gaden.Der skulle handles i Børsen, ikke med penge og abstrakte papirværdier, men med "reelle" værdier. Men over flere hundrede år ændres meget : I 1775 overgik Børsen til Kurantbanken, og sidst i det 18. århundrede fungerede Børsen på nogle områder snarere som en pengebørs. Da Grosserer-Societetet købte Børsen i 1855 måtte de sidste handlende forlade deres boder på Børsen. Helt op til dette år var der endnu både vinhandlere, høkere, urtekræmmere og skibsproviantører. Hvad der begyndte som en varebørs blev med tiden til en pengebørs og sluttelig en fondsbørs

        16 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Baden-Baden u. Wien, 1852-64. Zus. 64 S., Kl.-8° bzw. 8°. Reichsfreiherr Franz Xaver von Andlaw-Birseck war der Sohn des badischen Ministers Reichsfreiherrn Konrad Karl von Andlaw-Birseck (1763-1839) und dessen Ehefrau Sophie von Schakmin. Der badische Politiker Heinrich Bernhard von Andlaw-Birseck (1802-1871) war sein jüngerer Bruder. Franz Xaver von Andlaw-Birseck studierte an den Universitäten Freiburg im Breisgau, Landshut und Heidelberg Rechtswissenschaften und unternahm anschließend eine Grand Tour durch Italien, Frankreich und England. 1824 trat er in den badischen Staatsdienst, und zwar beim Ministerium des Äußern. Während dieser Zeit heiratete er auch seine Verlobte Katharina Hirsch. Nachdem er von 1826 bis 1830 und wieder von 1832 bis 1835 Sekretär der badischen Gesandtschaft in Wien gewesen war, ging er als Ministerresident 1838 nach München, 1843 nach Paris und 1846 als außerordentlicher Gesandter nach Wien. Im Jahre 1856 trat er in den Ruhestand und lebte seitdem meist in Baden-Baden. Er starb am 4. September 1876 in Bad Homburg vor der Höhe. Er schrieb „Pariser Bilder“ (Stuttgart, 1845), „Erinnerungsblätter aus den Papieren eines Diplomaten“ (Frankfurt a. M., 1857), „Mein Tagebuch, 1811-61“ (2 Bde., Frankfurt a. M., 1862), „Die Frauen in der Geschichte“ (2 Bde., Mainz, 1861), „Sieben heilige Fürsten“ (Regensburg, 1865) u.a. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878).

Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u.

        The Night Side of Nature. Or: Ghosts and Ghost Seers.

      London: G. Routledge 1852 - Third edition with new introduction (The first edition was 1848). 8vo. 2 volumes bound as 1. Contemporary brown half calf over brown cloth boards with burgundy title label and gilt decoration to spine. Some rubbing and scuffing to extremities, a little shelfwear, structurally sound and handsome, very good. Edges speckled red. Green endpapers, internally clean, pages lightly toned due to poor paper stock. Chip of loss to lower edge of page 495 not affecting text. Shows very well. One of the most influential and indeed wildly popular examinations of supernatural phenomena of the 19th century. Crowe was a contemporary of Dickens, Wilkie Collins and Charlotte Bronte and a well known author of the time. She was instrumental in engendering great public interest in unexplained supernatural phenomena and one of the first to suggest a correctly scientific approach to evaluating and understanding what she perceived as solvable mysteries in our midst. She can be credited with introducing the word "Poltergeist" to English literature in the first edition of this title. She was visible in the popular spiritualist movement, espoused spirit rapping, left her husband and went to live alone in Edinburgh, scandalised Hans Christian Andersen (you know, the chap with all the dying children in his tales) by being found inhaling ether with another woman at a party (19th century Edinburgh clearly being the Ibiza of the contemporary literati) and was the subject of a bizarre scandal involving her apparently wandering the city stark naked clutching a handkerchief and a carte de visite (I'd love to know whose) possibly believing that she had been made invisible at a seance: "Mrs Crowe has gone stark mad &#150; and stark naked &#150; on the spirit-rapping imposition. She was found t'other day in the street, clothed only in her chastity, a pocket-handkerchief and a visiting card. She had been informed, it appeared, by the spirits, that if she went out in that trim she would be invisible." That's Charles Dickens in a letter to a reverend, so there's no danger of him being thought of as a great big old gossip. It should also be noted that Mrs. Crowe (who hotly denied the incident, putting it down to chronic gastric inflammation, which is one I'll have to remember) was in her sixties at this point in her career, and I can't help but find the image of a successful female novelist, parapsychologist, ether fiend and all round dancer to the different drum finally just losing patience with polite Victorian society, rather a pleasing one. A nice copy of one of those books that everyone has been influenced by but no-one actually remembers. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Dispatches, during his Various Campaigns in India, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, the Low Countries, and France.

      London: John Murray, , 1852. Compiled from Official and other Authentic Documents by the late John Gurwood. 8 volumes, octavo (235 × 145 mm). Contemporary full red morocco extra gilt by Francis Bedford (ink-stamped fillet on front free endpaper verso in each volume) for the Duke of Portland, brown morocco double lettering-pieces, flattened bands with twined foliate roll gilt, compartments gilt with central lozenge composed of floral and foliate tools, stylised foliate corner-pieces, all compartments with double fillet gilt panel with dog-tooth roll top and bottom, both boards with concentric panels in gilt, floral finial corner-pieces, double-ruled edge roll, all edges gilt, marbled beneath, marbled endpapers, gilt floral roll to the turn-ins edged with a dog-tooth roll. Mezzotint portrait frontispiece by Burgess after Lawrence to Volume I, general title with engraved arms of Wellington to each volume. Armorial bookplates of the Duke of Portland. The lightest shelf wear, pale browning, overall very good, a superb set. New and Enlarged Edition", much preferred and genuinely uncommon. A great deal of extra material has been added to the coverage of both the Wars in India and Europe, "extracts from the Instructions for the movements of the Army, and from the General Orders, circulated by the Quarter Master General and Adjutant General, in the Peninsula, France, and the Low Countries, have also been added to this edition". A substantial production, this set very little diminished in the binding having lost perhaps just a couple of millimetres in the process, remaining handsome and imposing, the best set we have handled. When he finished his apprenticeship Francis Bedford entered the workshop Charles Lewis of Duke Street, St. James's "one of the best bookbinders of the day … He was Lewis's foreman for many years and, when Lewis died in 1836, managed the business for Lewis's widow, Maria. It was during this period that Bedford's talent was noticed by the duke of Portland, who became not only a patron but a friend" (ODNB). In 1841, Bedford entered into partnership with John Clarke of Frith Street, Soho, carrying on their business in Frith Street until 1850, when the partnership was dissolved due to Bedford's ill health. Bedford convalesced at the Cape of Good Hope "where he remained for several years, the expenses of his stay being met by the duke of Portland, and on his return to England he established himself in Blue Anchor Yard, York Street, Westminster … Bedford was considered the leading English bookbinder of his time, surpassed only by the best French binders …The number of volumes bound by him is large, and according to his obituary in The Bookbinder, 'year after year a constant stream of beautifully bound books went forth from his hands'". A superb copy in a strictly contemporary by one of Britain's finest binders for his noble friend and patron.

        Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds.

      London: Office of the National Illustrated Library, 1852. Octavo, 2 volumes, original cloth, gilt titles to the spine. Illustrated with numerous engravings throughout. In very good condition with some wear to the extremities and sporadic foxing. Uncommon in the original cloth. Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds is divided into three broad categories, including 'National Delusions,' 'Peculiar Follies,' and 'Philosophical Delusions.' The author discusses and usually debunks a wide variety of subjects and events. These include economic bubbles like the tulip craze of Holland in 1637 or the Mississippi Company financial bubble of 1719; alchemy, which was of particular interest to individuals who wanted to create gold out of lesser-valued materials; the Crusades, also known as the Middle Ages mania; witch hunts, the persecution of thousands of innocent victims that arose from either supernatural ill fortune or neighbors with a score to settle; duels; the political and religious influence on beards; and several others. The impact of Mackay?'s work has been remarkably far-reaching, influencing such fields as popular psychology and the stock market— as noted by The New York Times, which urged: "Any investor who has not read Charles Mackay?'s "Tulipomania," from his classic Extraordinary Popular Delusions, first published in 1841, should grab this book for that exercise alone."

In the early 1800s a large number of authors and artists in Spain participated in the costumbrismo movement, an important precursor to later 19th-century realism that generally involved written or pictorial sketches of a particular country's or region's social "types," customs, and manners. By 1830 the movement had spread to Cuba, among both native authors and Spanish artists traveling abroad. In the latter category was Victor Patricio de Landaluze (1828-89), the illustrator of the present volume, who eventually settled in Cuba and founded the satirical newspaper, DON JUNÍPERO. LOS CUBANOS PINTADOS... features twenty of Landaluze's illustrations of Cuban types ("La coqueta," "El tabaquero," "El litigante," etc.), engraved on plates by Jose Robles, and includes numerous in-text woodcut illustrations by Robles. The chalk-style lithographic frontispiece view, presumably by Landaluze, depicts a crowd viewing "TIPOS CUBANOS" in a peepshow box at an outdoor gathering. A total of thirty-eight types are described in the volume, often in a combination of prose, dialogue, and verse, by a variety of Cuban costumbre writers, most notably José Victoriano Betancourt, Manuel Costales, Manuel Zequeira, and José María de Cárdenas y Rodriguez. In her "Survey of Cuban Costumbrismo," Roberta Day Corbitt discusses Cárdenas at length, noting the "humorous irony of Cervantes" in his costumbre satire. Corbitt also cites Cuban biographer Francisco Calcagno, who states that between Cárdenas and writer Anselmo Suárez, "the two have made the most complete and finished picture of the physical and moral condition of a country which was ever traced by the pen of any writer" (Corbitt, p.43). A significant and surprisingly rare volume, with no copies listed on OCLC.

        THE SOUTH-WESTERN MONTHLY, A JOURNAL DEVOTED TO LITERATURE AND SCIENCE, EDUCATION, THE MECHANIC ARTS AND AGRICULTURE. VOLUME I[-II]

      Nashville, 1852. Later three-quarter black morocco and cloth, spines gilt. Corners lightly worn. Ownership inscription on verso of each frontispiece, bookplate on rear pastedowns. First volume with ink stamp on pastedown and titlepage. Lightly foxed. Some light wear and soiling. Very good. A very rare complete set of this interesting and important Tennessee periodical, containing all twelve articles entitled "Early History of the Southwest," which constitute the main interest of the magazine for modern readers. After the magazine ceased publication with the December 1852 issue, the editors followed their intention stated in their last editorial and gathered all of the narratives into a book issued in January 1853 entitled INDIAN BATTLES, MURDERS, SEIGES [sic] AND FORAYS IN THE SOUTH-WEST. "...This was a collection of narratives by various authors. These had appeared separately as articles in the SOUTH WESTERN MONTHLY MAGAZINE, printed in Nashville during the years 1851-52. The magazines are considered frontier periodicals of extreme rarity - the 1853 book...is all but unobtainable. Apparently, few copies of the book were printed, judging from the very few times one finds records of its sale..." - Allen. The actual first appearances in print of all of the items in the book are the periodical versions. Articles include "Sketch of the Captivity of Col. Joseph Brown," "The Indian Massacres in the Vicinity of Bosley's Spring...," "Indian Murders around Nashville - Narrative of John Davis, Esq.," "Scalping of Thomas Everett and his two sisters, near Buchanan's Fort...," "Indian Battles and Murders - Narrative of General Hall," "Perils attending emigration from Virginia to the West...burning of Sigler's Fort. Narrative of John Carr," "The levy of men sent out from North Carolina...narrative of Mr. Samuel Blair," "Narrative of John Rains," "Massacre at Cavet's Station." Virtually all of the narratives describe Indian fights in Tennessee between the 1780s and the War of 1812. An important rarity of Indian warfare on the Old Southwest frontier. This set has a remarkably large number of plates; other sets we know of have far fewer. All seem to be remainders from New York publications used as illustrations without regard to text.

        Trial of Wikoff, Vannoud, And Cavallari, For a Forced Marriage...

      1852. A Sensational Case of Kidnapping [Trial]. Wikoff, Henry [1813-1884], Principal Defendant. Vannoud, Louis, Defendant. Cavallari, Luigi, Defendant. Trial of Wikoff, Vannoud, And Cavallari, For a Forced Marriage Between Miss Gamble and One of the Accused. Before the High Court of Genoa, February 9-10, 1852. London: William Shoberl, 1852. 64 pp. Lithograph portrait frontispiece of Wikoff. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in printed wrappers. Moderate soiling, rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners. Light toning to text, foxing to a few laves, internally clean. $750. * Only edition. An account of one of the sensational trials of the early 1850s. Wikoff, or as he called himself, Chevalier Wikoff, was an American impresario, occasional European correspondent for the New York Herald and, possibly, a spy for Lord Palmerston. He was engaged to Jane Catherine Gamble, an English woman. Gamble changed her mind shortly before the wedding and fled to Genoa. Wikoff tracked her down and apparently tricked her into coming along with him to his apartment. Shortly afterwards Gamble filed a complaint of kidnapping that landed Wikoff in an Italian jail for 15 months. He was found guilty in an Italian court and forced to return her letters and "extorted promise of marriage." Ever enterprising, Wikoff responded to the negative publicity with a memoir entitled My Courtship and Its Consequences (1855), which became a best-seller. Copies of The Trial of Wikoff are scarce. OCLC locates 7 worldwide: 2 in the British Library and 5 in North American law libraries (Harvard, Library of Congress, University of Georgia, University of Minnesota, University of Pennsylvania).

        Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds.

      London: Office of the National Illustrated Library, 1852. Octavo, 2 volumes, original cloth, gilt titles to the spine. Illustrated with numerous engravings throughout. In very good condition with some wear to the extremities. Previous owners names on the titles pages. Uncommon in the original cloth. Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds is divided into three broad categories, including 'National Delusions,' 'Peculiar Follies,' and 'Philosophical Delusions.' The author discusses and usually debunks a wide variety of subjects and events. These include economic bubbles like the tulip craze of Holland in 1637 or the Mississippi Company financial bubble of 1719; alchemy, which was of particular interest to individuals who wanted to create gold out of lesser-valued materials; the Crusades, also known as the Middle Ages mania; witch hunts, the persecution of thousands of innocent victims that arose from either supernatural ill fortune or neighbors with a score to settle; duels; the political and religious influence on beards; and several others. The impact of Mackay?'s work has been remarkably far-reaching, influencing such fields as popular psychology and the stock market— as noted by The New York Times, which urged: "Any investor who has not read Charles Mackay?'s "Tulipomania," from his classic Extraordinary Popular Delusions, first published in 1841, should grab this book for that exercise alone."

        Op. 52]. A Hymn of Praise (Lobgesang) Symphonia Cantata, No. 1. Op. 52. [Piano-vocal score]

      J. Alfred Novello [PN 1025] [1852-1856], London - Probable First Edition, later issue. Rare. MWV A18. Not in Hoboken or Hirsch. WorldCat (8 copies, 4 in North America: University of Toronto; Yale University; Westminster Choir College; Stanford University (no distinctions among issues).

Novello's edition supposedly precedes Breitkopf & Härtel's (first advertised in June 1841), but the present copy does not. Not to be confused with Novello's regular piano- vocal score (PN 1869), which was reprinted many times and in high print runs."With the &#145;Lobgesang&#146; Symphony, composed in 1840 and published as Symphony no.2 in 1841, Mendelssohn. produced a symphony extending into the realm of religious music. Also, by introducing texted elements into the work, he took up an equally daunting challenge, that of responding to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Mendelssohn's solution, as he explained to Klingemann, was to attempt a hybrid symphony-cantata: a three-movement, through-composed orchestral sinfonia attached to a nine-movement vocal cantata, with biblical texts celebrating mankind's progress from darkness to enlightenment (the agent of this process was the word of God, as disseminated by the Gutenberg Bible). Linking the symphony and cantata is a recurring motto-like intonation. initially announced by the trombones and then given verbal meaning in the cantata by the addition of the text &#145;Alles was Odem hat, lobe den Herrn&#146;."

        A SERIES OF CHARTS, WITH SAILING DIRECTIONS, EMBRACING SURVEYS OF THE FARALLONES, ENTRANCE TO THE BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO STATE OF CALIFORNIA

      Washington, 1852. Quarto. Original green cloth, elaborately decorated in gilt on front board. Cloth stained, front hinge neatly repaired. Old stain along gutter of titlepage/frontispiece, else generally quite clean internally. Three of the maps with long, closed splits, but with no loss. "Chart of Sacramento River" laid in. A good copy. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A presentation copy, inscribed on the titlepage: "For Hon. J.W. Denver of California, with the respects of the author." James William Denver (1817-92) was born in Virginia and served in the army during the Mexican War. He had a long and varied political career, serving as a member of the California State Senate in 1852-53, as California's Secretary of State of from 1853 to 1855, and then as a U.S. Congressman from California in 1855-57. In 1852 he engaged in a duel with newspaper editor Edward Gilbert, during which Denver killed Gilbert. Denver went on to serve as secretary and governor of Kansas Territory in 1857-58. It was while governor of Kansas Territory that land speculator William Larimer named the western Kansas town of "Denver" after him (the city would become capital of the state of Colorado). During the Civil War, Denver was a general in the Union Army. This copy also bears the small, early bookplate of Theodore D. Judah of Sacramento on the front pastedown. Though it was published only a little more than a decade before his death, this would seem to be the engineer, Theodore D. Judah (1826-63), who launched the Central Pacific Railroad and was the driving force behind the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad. As chief engineer of the Central Pacific, he surveyed the route over the Sierra Nevada that that railroad would eventually take. He lobbied tirelessly in Washington, D.C. for funding for the Transcontinental Railroad, eventually bringing together the "Big Four" railroad barons who would make the project a reality. The "third edition, with additions," after the first of 1851. Ringgold, a U.S. Navy officer, undertook the survey of the area from the Farallones to Sacramento at the request of a group of prominent San Franciscans, and this guide was utilized extensively during the peak years of the emigration and gold rush. The frontispiece is a view of San Francisco from Yerba Buena Island. The other plates show smaller, similar views of other areas, generally two to a plate. This edition was issued the year after the first. A copy with a remarkable provenance.

Als ich vor Jahren meine apologtischen Gespräche über Religion in Jos. Mosers "Schul- u.

        NIZHNY TAGIL. RUSSIA &#150; CARTE GÉOLOGIQUE DU DISTRICT MÉTALLIFÈRE DE NIJNI-TAGUIL (MONTS-OURALS), PROPRIÉTÉ DE LA FAMILLE DÉMIDOFF D&#146;APRES LA 1ÈRE EDITION EXÉCUTÉE SUR LES LIEUX EN 1844 PAR MR. F. LE PLAY ET LES DOCUMENTS RECUEILLIS DE 1844 À 1851 PAR M. M.

      - Format : Manuscript, pen and ink with watercolour, in 2 parts, each part dissected into 12 sections and mounted on original linen, housed in original custom blue cloth slipcase with title debossed in gilt (Map in Excellent condition, slipcase with slight wear at edges), overall 143 x 139 cm (56 x 55 inches), with signed dedication: "A Mme Aurore de Karamasine hommage de l&#146;Auteur. Fr. Le Play". This spectacular map is an original exquisitely drafted manuscript geological map of the key Russian mining area of Nizhny Tagil, by the one of the era&#146;s leading mining engineers and sociologists Frédéric Le Play. The survey on which it is based was commissioned by Count Anatole Demidov, a fabulously wealthy mining tycoon, who could perhaps be described as Russia&#146;s first modern oligarch. Nizhny Tagil, the nucleus of the Demidov family&#146;s metals empire, was home to some of the most productive mines in the world, being located in a geologically complex region, immediately to the east of the Ural Mountains. The richly colourful and carefully drafted map represents Le Play&#146;s updated second version of his manuscript geological survey of Nizhny Tagil, drafted in 1852, which improves upon his 1844 first version (the current whereabouts of which are unknown). The present map is housed within its fine custom slipcase, and was drafted by Le Play to be a presentation piece for Aurora Karamzina, the enormously wealthy philanthropist, who was the co-proprietor of the Nizhny Tagil mines by virtue of her marriage to Anatole Demidov&#146;s late brother. The exquisite map covers a diagonal area approximately 200 kilometres long and 60 kilometres wide. The geological information is placed upon an exceedingly detailed and precise topographical template. The highly variable Ural foothill landscape is brilliantly expressed by contour lines, capturing gradations of elevation (along with the names of many hills and mountains), while all rivers, streams, lakes and swamps are depicted. In terms of human geography, all towns and villages are depicted, composed of the their built-up blocks, including the main town of "Nijne Taguilsk" (Nizhny Tagil, in the centre) and "Nijne Saldinsk" (Nizhny Saldinsk, on the right side of the map), amongst many others, while the road systems are delineated. Importantly, numerous named mines dot the landscape, while the grid on which Le Play laid out the map, labelled with numbers and letters, is visible along the edges of the featured area. The resplendent colours that overlay the entire map, classifying the geology of the region, are explained in the extremely detailed chart, "Légende des Couleurs en des Lignes employés dans la Carte Géologique du District Métallifère de Nijni-Taguil" [Legend of the Colours employed on the Geological Map of the Metalliferous District of Nizhny Tagil], which occupies the lower right corner of the map. Le Play divides the terrain into three general geological classifications, which are further divided in sub-categories, all of which are identified by colours (including different shades for variants of sub-categories) and letters, running vertically down the left-hand side of chart, under the heading "Désignations des couleurs en des signes" [Designations of the colours in relation to the signs]. Each classification and sub-category is named in the middle vertical column as "Désignations du terrain, des roches en des signes." [Designations of the land and rocks in relation to the signs]. In the wide right hand vertical column, Le Play provides extensive notes on each of the geological classifications, under the heading "Observations sur la situations géographique et topographique de roches en de gites Métallifère" [Observations regarding the geographical and topographical nature of the rocks and metalliferous deposits]. The first geological section is labelled "1ère Section &#150; Terrains de sédiments en couches horizontales ne faisant pas de a chaine des Monts-Ourals." [Sediment fields in horizontal layers t

Auf S. 7, sechste Zeile von unten, ist ein auffällig großer Abstand zwischen "la" und "posa". Nachdem er wegen Beleidung der Sittlichkeit in &#130;Madame Bovary&#145; angegriffen worden war, was auf den Abdruck einer provisorischen und unvollständigen Fassung in der Revue de Paris zurückging -, wurde Flaubert durch die Fürsprache der Prinzession Mathilde rehabilitiert, wozu auch die bemerkenswerte Verteidigung Maître Sénards beitrug, dem dieser Band gewidmet ist. &#150; In seinem Brief an Louise Collet drückt Flaubert seiner Erschöpfung Ausdruck und seiver Vorfreude, sie zu sehen: "Je tombe sur les bottes (expression que je t'expliquerai). Dieu ! que c'est mauvais, que c'est mauvais ! J'en suis gêné. Et les orgues de barbarie n'arrêtent pas ! J'y suis depuis 3 heures. Je sors pour aller dîner. Duplan vient à 10 heures. Je travaillerai tard cette nuit. Adieu, mille baisers. A demain, le plus tôt possible, mais je veux te porter tout achever." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        DAKOTA TAWAXITKU KIN, OR THE DAKOTA FRIEND [caption title]

      St. Paul, 1852. The issues from Volume 1 interleaved and string-tied, issues from Volume 2 also interleaved. Edge wear and some tanning on exterior leaves. A couple faint old stains in each of the gatherings. On the whole, quite clean and in very good condition. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A nearly complete run of this very rare Dakota Mission periodical. Only twenty total issues of this monthly newspaper printed in the Dakota and English languages were published, and this collection of eighteen issues contains all but issues three and four (January and February 1851) from the first volume. The primary purposes of the paper were to educate the Dakota themselves, and to pass along information on the tribe to the American people. It ceased publication when the Dakota were removed from Minnesota under a treaty of 1851, which ceded all Sioux lands in Minnesota to the United States, and provided for the removal of the tribe further westward. The editor, Gideon H. Pond, was a prominent missionary to the Dakota Indians, arriving in Minnesota in 1834 and taking up the study of the Dakota language. With his brother Samuel, Gideon Pond helped develop the first Dakota alphabet (no dictionaries or grammars being available up to that time), and they went on to publish readers, grammars, and translations in Dakota, and taught the language to Stephen Return Riggs. The mission statement of the newspaper is printed in the first issue and reads (in part): "to diminish and remove the existing prejudice to education among them [the Sioux], by exciting in them a taste for reading and bringing into use that knowledge of letters which is already expressed by a few...It will be the object of the paper to bring before the Indian mind such items of news as will interest them, and any such matter as it is believed will be calculated to improve their physical, mental, and moral condition." The paper contains a great variety of news, information, and reports, including news from local villages and settlements - including obituaries, weddings, and baptisms - reports by missionaries, accounts of Dakota customs and myths, religious works, the text of treaties, language lessons, and engraved illustrations. One article describes a ball game played by the Dakota closely resembling lacrosse, and another gives a description of the origins and form of their medicine dance, while another brief notice relates the Winnebago's love of whiskey. Most of the articles are printed in both Dakota and English, though occasionally only in one or the other. Beginning with the seventh issue of the first volume, an illustration was incorporated into the masthead depicting Dakota children reading THE DAKOTA FRIEND, as a missionary and two Dakota adults look on. "There is much of interest to the philologist in this paper: lessons for learners, grammatic forms, vocabularies, &c." - Pilling. After a few months of publication, the newspaper experienced financial difficulty, and several changes were made, including enlarging the size of the paper from quarto to folio sheets, and raising the subscription rate from twenty- five to fifty cents. The paper was printed at the Chronicle and Register Office in St. Paul for its entire run, and the English language portion was edited by the Rev. Edward Neill. Publication ceased in August 1852 with Vol. II, No. 8, and a note in the final issue reads: "the Dakota Mission deems it unadvisable, while the Indians are so unsettled, to continue the FRIEND. If the prospect is more encouraging it will be resumed hereafter." Printing in Minnesota began in the summer of 1849, so this is a very early imprint indeed, and only the fifth periodical in an Indian language published in the trans- Mississippi West (following a Shawnee language paper printed in Kansas beginning in 1835, and two Cherokee and two Choctaw language papers printed in present-day Oklahoma in the 1840s). Pilling locates runs of THE DAKOTA FRIEND at the Library of Congress and Harvard, and OCLC adds runs (some incomplete) at The New York Public Library, Yale, Newberry Library (from the Ayer and Graff collections), Huntington Library, Chicago Historical Society, Minneapolis Public Library, Minnesota Historical Society, and University of Minnesota. A very rare and important early Indian language newspaper.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JAMES BUCHANAN TO MAYOR DAVID LYNCH, WITH CANDID OPINIONS FROM BUCHANAN ON DEMOCRATIC RIVALS LEWIS CASS AND STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS, AND EVENTUAL WHIG NOMINEE GEN. WINFIELD SCOTT]

      Wheatland, near Lancaster [Pa.], 1852. One horizontal and two vertical folds. Lightly dampstained. Two tiny edge tears. Very good. In a blue half leather and cloth folding box, gilt. A remarkable political letter from future president James Buchanan, marked "Private" for Mayor David Lynch of Pittsburgh, whose support Buchanan secured for his potential presidential nomination at the 1852 Democratic Convention. Buchanan concisely conveys to Lynch his assessment of three close rivals for the White House. Buchanan had presidential aspirations as early as 1834 when he was elected to the Senate. He was considered for the 1844 Democratic nomination, which would eventually go to James K. Polk. For his support Buchanan was appointed by Polk as Secretary of State in 1845. Buchanan made a good run at the 1852 nomination, though the nomination and ultimately the presidency went to Franklin Pierce. In this letter, dated just over a month before the Democratic National Convention at Maryland Institute Hall in Baltimore, Buchanan writes candidly about other potential presidential nominees. Of Gen. Lewis Cass, Buchanan writes: "Your review of some matters relating to General Cass contains nothing but facts; & yet should it ever be traced to you from our known friendship & intimacy it will be employed by his friends to injure me....Neither Cass nor his leading friends in Pennsylvania deserve any forbearance at our hands; but he has friends in other States, who, I know, are strongly inclined in my favor, & we ought not to pursue any course which would drive them from their purpose." Buchanan's appraisal of Stephen A. Douglas is measured, but positive: "He possesses fine talents, a strong character & decided energy; & although I cannot approve all his conduct or that of some of his friends, he is not liable to so many objections as his western competitor [Lewis Cass]. With a few years good training, he would make an excellent President." Buchanan reserves the most heat for his Whig adversary, Gen. Winfield Scott: "Scott, in order to secure all the free soil votes of the non- slaveholding States, will refrain from signing a pledge to sustain the Fugitive Slave Law; but yet he will give assurances to his Southern friends that he will faithfully execute this law & there will be proclaimed every where in the South...." General Winfield Scott was nominated by the Whigs on the 53rd ballot at their June 17-20, 1852 convention, also held at Maryland Institute Hall, and then soundly defeated in November by Pierce, 296 to 42 electoral votes. Scott won just four states: Kentucky, Tennessee, Massachusetts, and Vermont. Interestingly, Buchanan does not discuss Pierce in this letter, as the latter emerged as a compromise candidate well into the balloting process at the 1852 Democratic convention. A candid peek inside the political mind of a future president.

        [CONSECUTIVE RUN OF THE PRINTINGS OF THE FIRST THROUGH SEVENTH LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLIES OF THE TERRITORY OF NEW MEXICO]

      Santa Fe. 1852-1858.. Seven volumes. Early 20th-century cloth, leather labels. Some wear to labels. Institutional ink and blind stamps on titles. Very good. Early and significant New Mexico imprints, containing legislation passed in the formative years of the territory, including first laws following its organization and the first re-printing of the Kearny Code. The individual titles with descriptions are as follows: ^1) [First Assembly] LAWS OF THE TERRITORY OF NEW MEXICO, PASSED BY THE FIRST LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY IN THE CITY OF SANTA FE, (AT A SESSION BEGUN AND HELD ON THE SECOND DAY OF JUNE, A.D. 1851;) TO WHICH ARE PREFIXED THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, AND THE ACT OF CONGRESS ORGANIZING NEW MEXICO AS A TERRITORY. Santa Fe: James L. Collins, 1852. 442, [1]pp. Errata on terminal leaf. CHECK LIST OF NEW MEXICO IMPRINTS AND PUBLICATIONS 1784-1876, 65. McMURTRIE 39. SABIN 53281. ^This printing of the first laws of the Territory of New Mexico following its organization, includes the first re- printing of the Kearny Code. That code, written by Colonel Doniphan during the U.S. occupation of the region during the Mexican War and printed in Santa Fe in 1846, would be the first American code of laws locally printed in the far west. The Territory of New Mexico would be ceded to the U.S. as part of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848, and the territory officially organized in November 1850. The first session of the first legislative Assembly of the Territory met in Santa Fe on 1 December 1851, with the first act being an act to establish the Office of the Translator. ^With text in English and Spanish throughout, in addition to a re-printing of the Kearny Code this volume includes a printing of the organic law creating the territory, the acts passed by both the first and second sessions of the first legislature, a printing of the U.S. Constitution (in Spanish only, as issued), a list of the members of the Assembly and an Index to all the laws. As expected, the acts passed by the first legislative assembly include the foundation acts concerning the establishment of courts, elections, territorial militia, revenue, county boundaries, public lands, negotiations with Indian tribes, and much more. According to an act passed at the first session of the Legislative Assembly of the Territory (approved July 18, 1851, see p. 181), five hundred copies of the laws were ordered to be printed. This foundation work on the establishment of the Territory, printed in the Territory, is very rare. ^2) [Second Assembly] LAWS OF THE TERRITORY OF NEW MEXICO, PASSED BY THE SECOND LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY IN THE CITY OF SANTA FE. Santa Fe: James L. Collins, 1853. 3- 160pp. (Dampstaining, terminal leaf defective with some loss but with photographic facsimiles bound in).

McMURTRIE 121. ^The acts passed in these years, i.e. between 1852 and 1858, cover a variety of subjects, from laws regarding individual rights to others establishing counties, courts, elections, and criminal codes, to particular prohibitions on carrying concealed weapons "within the settlements," laws on vagrancy, gambling, prostitution, selling liquor to Indians, and much more. Other acts deal with the incorporation of mining companies and establishing mail routes. ^Early and significant New Mexico imprints, containing legislation passed in the formative years of the territory.
