        Bleak House

      London: Bradbury Evans, 1852. First edition, bound from the original parts. Octavo, bound in full tan calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front and rear panels, burgundy morocco lables, top edge gilt. Illustrated with 40 plates by H.K. Browne ("Phiz"), including the frontispiece and additional title-page. There are 10 "dark plates". With all three typographical errors called for in the first edition: pp. 19, line 6: "elgble"; pp. 209, line 23: "chair" instead of "hair"; and pp. 275, line 22: "counsinship" instead of cousinship." Half title present. Original wrappers for all parts bound in at rear, 7 slips advertising Household Words and 4 page ad for Allsopp's Pale or Bitter Ale also present. Hatton & Cleaver p.275; Smith I, 10. A nice example. "In Bleak House for the first time [society] is seen as an absurdity, an irrelevance, almost a madness. A dark force from which the real people must escape in order to create another society of their own [Dickens] had been preparing for this novel all his life and, despite the calamities which had helped to provoke it in the first place, was even happy while he was writing it It might even be said that Bleak House cured the very malaise which was responsible for its composition" (Ackroyd, 649-50). "The Dickens cosmos, his phantasmagoric London and visionary England, emerges in Bleak House with a clarity and pungency that surpasses the rest of his work, before and after" (Bloom, 311).

        Uncle Tom's Cabin.

      John Cassell, London., 1852. First Cruikshank edition: illustrated with twenty-seven wood engravings by George Cruikshank. It is now generally accepted that the C.H. Clarke edition preceded this by a few weeks and counts as the first U.K. edition in book form, although it was Cassell's serial issue in thirteen parts which is the true first appearance in the U.K. Octavo. pp xxiv, 391. One page of adverts at rear. Original cloth decorated in blind and lettered in gilt. All edges gilt. The seminal anti-slavery novel which very quickly went into many printings, eventually becoming the best-selling novel of the nineteenth century. It is a shame that its undoubted contribution to the abolitionist cause has over the years become tainted by accusations of stereotyping and even racism on the part of the author, usually coming from people who haven't read the book. It was the passage of the second Fugitive Slave Act which stung Stowe into starting the novel, which she originally conceived as a much more modest tract. The Act allowed for the punishment of those who helped runaway slaves and even curtailed the rights of freed slaves. The influence of the book in Britain was such that it is even credited with making it impossible for the government to join the American Civil War on the side of the Confederacy. Abraham Lincoln himself is said to have called the author ''the little woman who made this great war''.Hinges starting but tight. Trace of bookplate removed from front pastedown. Tail of spine a bit scuffed. Very good indeed.

        Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin From 1852 – Year of First Publication – Presented "in 1881 by Mrs. Ann Lewis, a colored friend, as her choice treasure."

      Boston & Cleveland, Ohio 1852 - Uncle Tom's Cabin,; or, Life Among the Lowly. Boston: John P Jewett & Company, and Cleveland, Ohio: Jewett, Proctor & Worthington, 1852. The first edition was issued in Boston by the same publisher earlier in the same year. Its immediate success is witnessed by an addition to the imprint above the publisher's name: "Seventieth Thousand." Two volumes, 312 and 322 pp. respectively, both inscribed, "The Crawford's/ Ithaca/ New York/ Presented in 1881 by Mrs. Ann Lewis, a colored friend, as her choice treasure." With later pencil inscription, "Given to Mr & Mrs E.M. Newton by Mrs Crawford/ Sept 16 1924." Both volumes in original brown cloth binding with embossed image of a slavery scene, each in new brown cloth archival case. Old professional restoration to loss at top and bottom of each spine. An early set, with an interesting association.A pivotal work, often cited as a book that helped change the course of human events. Upon meeting Stowe, Abraham Lincoln supposedly remarked "So you're the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war." Stowe's work did much to galvanize popular opinion against slavery. Stowe's influence reached as far as Great Britain, where Uncle Tom's Cabin and anti-slavery sentiment was a factor in preventing open English support of the Confederacy, despite England's financial interest in supporting "King Cotton."

Still a very nice copy, in the best condition that we have seen of this edition. ; The fifth edition of the New Testament in Maori (the first was in 1837).

Binder's ticket in corner of front endpaper "Williams & Norgate / London".

        Signed Hand-Drafted Cheque. For eight pounds, payable 'to House or Bearer', dated London 26th March 1859 and signed with a characteristic flourish.

      1859 Folded into eight, with sl. browning along creases. One tiny hole. Overall a nice clean example.An unusual cheque, drafted by Dickens in blue ink on a piece of paper, 18.5 x 11.5cm, presumably after he had run out of printed cheques. It is countersigned in black ink by Williams & Co., and bears a one penny stamp, crossed through, legitimising the payment. There is no record of the transaction in Pilgrim Letters, but as the cheque has no named beneficiary other than 'house or bearer', it seems likely that it was for household expenses, and would have been entrusted to a member of the domestic staff. A note on the verso, signed by John Holt Schooling, March 1st 1894, states, 'this cheque ... was given to me by Georgina Hogarth.' There is a further contemp. signature, 'Bishop' (possibly the cashier?), and an addition in manuscript.

        Woodcock Shooting

      N. Currier, New York 1852 - Hand-colored lithograph by Frances Palmer after her own painting. Provenance: Donaldson, Lufkin &Jenrette Americana Collection Classic Currier hunting print by Fanny Palmer Fanny Palmer (1812-1876) was the first woman in the United States to work as a professional artist, and to make a living with her art. She produced more Currier and Ives' prints than any other artist, and she was the only female in a business that was dominated by men. Painting was not considered a suitable occupation for a woman, nor was lithography. Hers was a story common to Victorian wives who were expected to keep house and be supported by their husbands. She however pursued a career in England in printmaking and eventually in America, virtually supporting her family as her husband sank deeper into alcoholism and then supporting it in fact when he fell to his death on a hotel stairway in 1857. Her shooting prints show a fine understanding of the appeal the sport had for men with their dogs, shotguns and hunting attire, walking through untamed country with a friend on an autumn afternoon. Mrs. Palmer's husband was fond of shooting and kept dogs. These served as models in her images of fowl shooting. Gale 7320.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("L. Uhland").

      Tübingen, 23. II. 1852. - 2½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. An den namentlich nicht genannten Nürnberger Architekten und Künstler Carl Alexander Heideloff (1789-1865), der sich bereits Mitte vorigen Monats mit der Bitte um ein künstlerisches Urteil an Uhland gewandt hatte: Er solle Randzeichnungen zu einer Übersetzung des Dies irae und des Stabat mater liefern, die ein Freiburger Freund, Herr von Stöckern, angefertigt habe; Heideloff hatte sich von seinem Landsmann eine Äußerung zur Druckwürdigkeit der Texte gewünscht. Uhland erwidert: "Verehrtester Freund! Ihr werthes Schreiben kam bei mir an, als ich durch Angelegenheiten einer Vormundschaft auf längere Dauer in Anspruch genommen war. Entschuldigen Sie damit meine verspätete Antwort. - Die mitgetheilten Uebersetzungen haben mir gleich beim ersten Lesen den Eindruck gemacht, daß hier der rechte Ton des alten kirchlichen Gesangs getroffen sei, und das ist zum Voraus eine Hauptsache. Aber auch im Einzelnen, bei der Vergleichung mit den Texten, ergibt sich sinnige Treue und Sorgfalt, ohne daß darunter die freie Bewegung gelitten hätte. Es ist gewiß richtig, gerade da am genauesten zu reimen, wo der Reim, wie in Dies irae, als ein mehrfacher schwierig ist, eben aber durch den wiederholten Anschlag, besonders im Deutschen, welches dessen weniger gewohnt ist, die Aufmerksamkeit des Ohres auf sich lenkt. - Einige Bemerkungen über Einzelstellen habe ich beigelegt. Die versuchten abändernden Fassungen sind nicht so gemeint, als ob damit nun das Rechte gefunden wäre, sie sollten nur meine Absicht positiv ausdrücken und, soweit diese gebilligt wird, das Anlegen der letzten Hand hervorrufen. - Erlauben Sie noch, daß ich Anlaß nehme, eine Sache, die nicht mich selbst betrifft, bei Ihnen in wohlwollende Erinnerung zu bringen. Sie übernahmen es vor mehreren Jahren gefälligst, für unsern Landsmann, Dr. Moriz Rapp, damals in Rotweil, sich zum Behuf des Verkaufs einer ihm zugehörigen Sammlung Riepenhausenscher Handzeichnungen im Kreis Ihrer ausgebreiteten Verbindungen umzusehen. Diese Sammlung, der Ihr kundiges Urtheil einen nicht unbedeutenden pekuniären Werth zuerkannte, wird nahezu das Einzige sein, was dem Eigenthümer, der auf Studien und Reisen Vieles verwendet hat, von der väterlichen Erbschaft übrig geblieben ist. Er lebt hier als Docent an der Universität, mit dem Titel eines Professors, aber ohne den festen Gehalt eines solchen, mit einem kleinen, widerruflichen Wortgeld. Seine ausgezeichnete sprachwissenschaftliche Kenntniß und Begabung, wovon ein Werk, das sich eben im Drucke befindet [d. i. "Vergleichende Grammatik", Bd. 1 (Cotta 1852)], neues Zeugniß ablegen wird, ist zwar wohl geeignet, ihm als Gelehrten Achtung zu verschaffen, nicht aber, da diese Fächer kein zahlreiches Publikum haben, ihm auch ergiebige schriftstellerische oder akademische Honorare abzuwerfen. Seine Gesundheit ist öfters leidend und all dieß zusammen macht es seinen Freunden höchst wünschenswerth, daß ihm für spätere Jahre das Mögliche gewahrt bleibe. Darum würden Sie einem wahren Anliegen derselben erfreulich entgegenkommen, wenn Sie wirklich für jenen ererbten Kunstschatz ein entsprechendes Angebot zu erlangen vermöchten, oder, sofern Sie hiezu keine Aussicht mehr haben, solchen jetzt an Rapp zurückgehen ließen, damit er selbst etwa sich ergebende Gelegenheit zum Verkaufe wahrnehmen könnte. Ich schreibe dieß, ohne dazu von Rapp, der seine eigenen Interessen nur zu wenig betreibt, irgend beauftragt oder veranlaßt zu sein, einzig weil mir sein Geschick am Herzen liegt und ich mich zugleich der freundlichsten Gesinnung von Ihrer Seite stets zu erfreuen hatte. - Indem ich das Manuscript der Lieder hiebei zurückgebe und dem geehrten Uebersetzer mich bestens zu empfehlen bitte, bin ich mit alter Freundschaft und Hochachtung der Ihrige [.]". Uhlands Briefwechsel IV (1916), S. 17f., Nr. 2428 "(Or[iginal] war 1908 im Handel").

        Sammlung von 9 eigenhändigen Briefen und dazu 4 eigenhändigen Briefen seiner Frau Louise (geborene Strauß aus Ödenburg).

      Wien u.a., 1850-, 1852. - circa 23,5 x 14,5 bis 30,5 x 25 cm. meist Doppelblätter gefaltet, mit Adressen aussen und Stempeln sowie erborchenen Siegeln "Über den wissenschaftlichen Werdegang von Moriz Hoernes informiert Wurzbach IX, 126. Er wurde 1837 im Hofmineralienkabinett in der Wiener Hofburg angestellt und 1856 zum Kustos des Kabinetts befördert. Gemeinsam mit Paul Partsch inventarisierte er die Sammlung neu. Die Einteilung eines Abschnitts des Känozoikums in das Paläogen und das Neogen geht auf Moriz Hoernes zurück. Ihm fiel bei Studien zu fossilen Mollusken aus dem Wiener Becken die Ähnlichkeit der Muscheln aus den Sedimenten des Miozäns und des Pliozäns auf, die sich jedoch von den Muscheln der älteren Schichten deutlich unterschieden. Er nannte die jüngere Periode Neogen, die ältere Paläogen. Das 1860 von Gustav Adolf Kenngott und Wilhelm von Haidinger entdeckte und beschriebene Mineral Hörnesit wurde nach Hoernes benannt. (Die neueste - und Wurzbach an Nachrichten zur Familiengeschichte weit übertreffende Darstellung in den Berichten der Geologischen Bundesanstalt, Band 69, Wien 2006, verfaßt von Robert Pils). Verheiratet war er mit der Nichte von Paul Maria Partsch, Aloysia, genannt Louise (1819-1902), geborene Strauß. Paul Maria Partsch?s Schwester Aloysia war mit dem Arzt Franz Strauß verheiratet und hatte drei Töchter. Louise Strauß war mit Moriz Hörnes verheiratet. Hermine, die Jüngste heiratete Eduard Sueß (1831 -1914). Sidonia Strauß heiratete den Neffen des berühmten Brasilienforschers Johann Natterer (1787-1843), den Arzt und Physiker Johann August Natterer (1821-1900). Hoernes war Vater des Prähistorikers Moriz Hoernes (1852-1917) und des Geologen Rudolf Hoernes (1850-1912). - Aus den Briefen: Wien, 2. Juli 1850: ". Der Vater läßt Euch Alle herzlich grüßen - die Cholera hat zum Theil gänzlich aufgehört, es zeigen sich nur hie und da einzelne Fälle ? desto mehr ist der arme Vater von den Ängstlichen und insbesonders von der Statthalterey und der Stadthauptmannschaft mit Commissionen, Sitzungen und dgl. gequält." - Wien, 9. Juli 1850: ". Natterer und ich sind gestern um ½ 10 Uhr glücklich in Wien angekommen. Um 1 Uhr besuchte ich den Vater, welcher sich wohl befindet. er hofft ebenfalls Samstags mit mir nach Mary kommen zu können. Meine Mittheilungen über das herrliche Heu, die Kegelbahn und die Verordnung über das Treiben des Viehes haben ihn sehr erfreut." - Wien, 11. Juli 1850: ". Die Absetzung Haynaus macht hier noch immer das Tagesgespräch aus; Man sagt, daß sich derselbe bedeutende Übergriffe in der letzten Zeit erlaubt habe; ja sogar Kaiserl. Gnadenakte auf längere Zeit eigenmächtig sistirt habe . Man sagt, daß vorzüglich Baron Heringer die Abberufung Haynaus bewirkt habe, indem er erklärte nicht mehr nach Ungarn gehen zu wollen, wenn dieses nicht geschieht. Als Nachfolger wird Heß genannt; gewiß eine treffliche Wahl deren Sanktionirung für Ungarn sehr zu wünschen wäre." Haynau hatte den Spitznamen ?Hyäne von Brescia". - Lilienfeld, 6. August: ". Es ist wirklich komisch, wenn wir an einen Fundort kommen, wie da gearbeitet wird. Weithin hallen die Hammerschläge in dem einsamen Gebirge und oft bleibt ein Bauer verwundert am Wege stehen um unser Thun und Treiben sich zu betrachten. Man hält uns hier für Kohlensucher und jüngst bath uns ein Bauer der eben ackerte zitternd, ja nicht da ein Kohlenbergwerk aufzumachen, weil dann sein ganzer Acker zu Grunde gerichtet würde, wie längst schon an mehreren Orten der hiesigen Gegend geschehen sey - doch wir beruhigten ihn und nahmen einige Versteinerungen mit." - Steyer, 16. August 1850: ". Montag den 12. August fuhren wir in das Grossauer Steinkohlenbergwerk, welches dem Herrn von Miesbach gehört. Wir untersuchten hier die ganze Gegend und hatten das Glück einige sehr interessante Versteinerungen aufzufinden - der Schichtmeister Rieger ein ungemein artiger Mann wollte uns ein kleines diner geben, welches aber Haidinger wegen zu großem Zeitverlust nicht annahm.
