        Pierers) Universal-Lexikon der Gegenwart und Vergangenheit oder neuestes encyclopädisches Wörterbuch der Wissenschaften, Künste und Gewerbe bearbeitet von mehr als 300 Gelehrten, herausgegeben von H. A. Pierer, 3. Auflage (Vierte Ausgabe), 17 Bände Halbl

      Altenburg, H. A. Pierer, 1849 - 1852. - Dritte Auflage (Vierte Ausgabe). Vollständiges Grundwerk in 17 Bänden. Schwarze Original-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln und aufwendiger goldgeprägter Biedermeier-Ornamentik; dreiseitiger marmorierter Farbschnitt. Monumentales enzyklopädisches Werk mit mehr als 300.000 Stichworten auf ca. 16.000 Seiten (die etwa zeitgleich erschienene 8. Brockhaus-Auflage umfasste demgegenüber lediglich 12.000 Stichworte). Diese dritte Auflage war im Wesentlichen ein Neudruck der zweiten Auflage mit lediglich geringfügigen Aktualisierungen. Die 34 Bände (zu je 30 Bogen) der zweiten Auflage wurden hier in kompakterer Form zu 17 Bänden (zu je 60 Bogen) zusammengefaßt, der Druck auf hochwertigerem Papier vorgenommen. Als Herausgeber des Werkes fungierten nunmehr die Pierer-Söhne Eugen (1823 - 1890), Viktor (1826 - 1855) und Alfred (1836 - 1901). Was im Seemann-Verzeichnis (Bibliotheca Lexicorum, S. 454 f.) zur zweiten Pierer-Auflage vermerkt ist, gilt also gleichermaßen für das Nachfolgeformat: "Durch das moderne Konzept (erstes Lexikon mit ausführlichen Benutzerhinweisen, ausgezeichnete Stichwort- und Informationsselektion, neuartiger kurzer Lexikonstil, übersichtliche Aufmachung) wurde das Werk zu einem Markstein in der Lexikographie . Die verweistechnische Infrastruktur dieses Werkes war ihrer Zeit weit voraus und steht im 19. Jahrhundert ohne Beispiel da." Da das Pierer-Lexikon trotz seiner überragenden, die Konkurrenzausgaben der größeren Häuser Brockhaus und Meyer übertreffenden Qualität wegen eher rückständiger Vertriebsmethoden in vergleichsweise geringer Auflagenhöhe erschien, sind vor allem die frühen Auflagen dieses unter Fachleuten hochgeschätzten Lexikons heute nur noch äußerst selten, gut erhaltene, dekorative Exemplare kaum noch anzutreffen. Alle Bände in gutem, unversehrtem Zustand. Buchrücken allenfalls partiell leicht berieben, Goldprägungen noch gut zur Geltung kommend; Deckelbezüge partiell etwas beschabt; eine Ecke leicht angeknickt. Seiten überwiegend sauber, partiell leicht fleckig bzw. gebräunt. In toto schönes Exemplar dieser aufwendig gestalteten, repräsentativen Biedermeier-Ausgabe. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben). Ich biete zurzeit unter der Artikelnummer SB-14200 einen Bilder-Atlas zur 2. Pierer-Auflage an, der gleichermaßen zur Ergänzung der 3. Auflage geeignet ist.

        Österreichische Plakatkunst.

      28,5 x 40 cm. 10 ungez. Bll. (Titelei), 124 S. (die einseitig bedruckten Bll. der Paginierung folgend zusammengeklebt, dadurch 2 Bll. = 2 Ss.). Mit 1 (v. 21) Farbtaf. (diese m. 3 weiteren Farbauszügen) u. 159 (v. 176) mont. Textabb. (dav. 6 farb. u. 12 lose). In 6 klammergeheft. Blöcken ohne Umschlag. Schmutztitel angestaubt u. m. Lichtspuren, durch die schlechte Papierqualität stark gebräunt u. z. Tl. randrissig, Text abgegriffen u. z.Tl. fingerfl., mehrf. gestemp. (?Dr. Mascha, Wien, 13/9, Wambachergasse 14?), 1 Umschlag m. dem Stempel ?Verein der Plakatfreunde E.V.? [Berlin]. Die letzten Korrekturfahnen des bis heute grundlegenden Werks, in dem erstmals die Entwicklung dieser neuen Kunstform in Österreich-Ungarn dargestellt wurde. Dieses Werk stellt die Grundlage aller späteren Publikationen zum Thema dar und ist mittlerweile selbst zu einem ebenso raren Sammlerobjekt geworden. Schließlich erschien es aufgrund der Kriegszeit in einer kleinen Auflage von lediglich 230 Exemplaren (200 Exemplaren als Leinenausgabe u. 30 Ex. als nummerierte Vorzugausgabe, in Leder gebunden und auf Japanpapier gedruckt). Vorliegender Korrekturabzug ist auf einem schlechteren Papier gedruckt als die spätere Druckausgabe des Werkes. Durchgehend mit Verbesserungen und Anstreichungen durch die Hand des Verfassers (mit Tinte und Rotstift). Die Tafeln - mit Ausnahme der Tafel 17 ?Schiele, Egon. Shaw oder die Ironie, Vorlesung Egon Friedell? ? sind der vorliegenden Korrekturfahne nicht beigegeben. Das Schiele-Plakat mit 3 Farbauszügen in Beilage (mit denen im Zusammendruck alle vorkommenden Farben wiedergegeben werden können. In Platte: ?Bestimmt Rot? ?Bestimmt Schwarz?). Die Abbildungen, die in der Buchausgabe in den Text gedruckt waren, sind hier montiert. 17 sind leider nicht vorhanden. Die Korrekturen wurden weitgehend übernommen wie ein Vergleich mit einem Exemplar der späteren Druckausgabe ergeben hat. - Ottokar Mascha (1852-1929) war der erste, der sich in Österreich nicht nur als qualifizierter Sammler, sondern auch als kenntnisreicher Publizist mit dem Thema ?Plakat? beschäftigte. M. war zunächst in Prag und dann ab 1897 in Wien als Rechtsanwalt tätig. Als es 1912 zur Gründung der ?Wiener Bibliophilen-Gesellschaft? kam, war Mascha unter dem Vorsitzenden, dem damaligen Leiter des Hofburgtheaters Hugo Thimig, als ?Schatzmeister? Mitglied des Vorstandes. 1912 stellte Mascha einen bedeutenden Teil seiner Sammlung für die damals viel beachtete, erste repräsentative Plakat-Ausstellung Österreichs in der Wiener Secession zur Verfügung und lieferte einen fundierten Beitrag für den Katalog der Schau. 1917 schenkte M. einen Großteil seiner Plakatsammlung der damaligen Kaiserlichen Hofbibliothek und schuf damit den Anstoß und die Grundlagen für die bedeutende Plakatsammlung der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek. Durch die wirtschaftlichen Probleme der Kriegs- und Nachkriegszeit sah sich M. nach und nach genötigt, die noch bei ihm verbliebenen Teile seiner Sammlungen über den Kunstmarkt zu veräußern. (vgl. dazu Denscher, Bernhard. Der Plakatsammler Ottokar Mascha). - DIESES OBJEKT UNTERLIEGT DER DIFFERENZBESTEUERUNG.

        Socialisme. L'insurrection de Clamecy

      [Clamecy, Imprimerie Cégrétin], 1852. 1852, 1852, in-8, 244-XXIV pages, chagrin bleu nuit, dos à quatre faux nerfs et orné, un filet gras et un triple filet dorés en encadrement des plats, tranches dorées [Cassier], "La démocratie pure est le despotisme de la canaille" (Voltaire) ; "Un peuple gâté par une liberté excessive est le plus insupportable des tyrans" (Fénelon) ; "La démocratie pure ne convient qu'à des Dieux" (Rousseau). Ces citations éloquentes et commodes - deux sont tirées de l'article "Démocratie" du Dictionnaire universel de la langue française de Boiste - sont placées en exergue et à la fin de cet ouvrage fort rare qui traite de l'insurrection des flotteurs de Clamecy dans la Nièvre et de la résistance au coup d'État du 2 décembre 1851. Il est attribué à Louis Auguste Marlière (1815-1894), sous-préfet de Clamecy au moment des faits, qui achève son travail sur une flatterie à l'adresse de Napoléon III : "C'est ainsi que la Providence a mis aux mains de Napoléon l'épée qui devait trancher nos discordes civiles ! qu'elle a élevé son génie à la hauteur de l'époque, lui donnant pour horizon le monde entier, et le faisant arbitre souverain de la destinée des nations !" L'ouvrage est un témoignage émanant de l'esprit des bourgeois conservateurs de cette commune de 6000 âmes, qui avait accueilli avec enthousiasme la proclamation de la République en 1848 ; parmi ces républicains se trouvaient de nombreux "gens de rivière", Clamecy étant un important centre de flottage des bois descendus des forêts du Morvan. ENVOI ou ex-dono (signature difficilement lisible) à M. Villiers, daté du 11 novembre 1852. On joint : une L.A.S. adressée à M. Pellault père à Clamecy, datée du 18 février 1852. In-8 [132 x 208 mm], 4 pages manuscrites à l'encre brune, cachets postaux et trace d'un cachet de cire rouge. La signature est difficilement lisible, mais le témoignage contenu dans ce courrier laisse aisément penser qu'elle est de Legeay, banquier à Clamecy et maire de la ville au moment de la révolte. Il s'agit en effet du récit des évènement vus, depuis la mairie, le 5 décembre 1851 : "Les hommes réunis à la mairie l'ont été sur ma convocation et organisés par moi : le S. préfet a envoyé quelques fusils puisqu'il n'y en avait pas à la mairie. Mais j'ai délivré des cartouches..." La lettre est probablement écrite à Henri Pellault, auteur de plusieurs notices historiques sur la ville de Clamecy, dont sa famille est originaire (La Commune de Clamecy, Ve Cassier, 1868 ; Réclamations des flotteurs de Clamecy, Clamecy, A. Leblond, 1851). Légers frottement aux moins, coiffes et coupes, quelques rousseurs. Néanmoins, bel exemplaire de ce rarissime ouvrage ouvrage d'histoire régionale (un exemplaire à la Biblioteca Reale de Turin et un à Bibliothèque Municipale de Nevers). Simone Waquet, "Clamecy et la résistance au coup d'État", Bulletin de l'Association 1851, n° 8, février-mars 2000

        Outstanding Autographed Letter Signed about a groundbreaking medical procedure

      Cheraw, SC, 1852. unbound. 8 pages (front and back), each two-page spread measuring 8 x 10 inches, Cheraw, South Carolina, September 25, 1852. In this letter to Dr. Rufus Woodward, Dr. Kollock discusses pioneering the use of the Bozeman Button Suture in the first successful treatment of a Lacerated Perineum and also provides a sad glimpse of the great doctors' racial attitudes, in very small part: "...I was called a few weeks since to a patient who had sustained an exterior laceration to the anus involving the M sphincter and about an inch from the vagina. I operated 22 days after delivery in what I regarded as somewhat -- a novel way, at any rate I have not seen or heard the operation being performed as I did it on this occasion. Instead of using the ordinary suture I introduced silver wire through the edges of the wound and recurred them by means of silver buttons, it is called Bozeman's Button Suture, much as has been used in 'Vesico Vaginal Fistula.' My operation is so far the first in which the button suture has been used in the cure of Laceration of the Perineum. It receded most admirably. I allowed the wire and buttons to remain on thirteen days during which time I kept the wound of the patient constituted and drew off the water daily with a catheter. On the morning of the 14th day I removed the sutures and found to my great satisfaction that there was a perfect union of the parts throughout the entire extent of the laceration. I am preparing an account of the case for publication...You folks up North know nothing about the splendid sport of a fox chase -- the way you hunt them -- you go out with two or three dogs and shoot the fox the first time he comes in sight. Here we think no more of shooting a fox than a nigger..." Tiny partial tears along the horizontal folds; some pencil underlining on page 5. Very good(-) condition. Note: Most surviving correspondence of Dr. Cornelius Kollock has long been collected by Historical Societies and Institutions with few remaining items remaining in private hands. Letters with fine content are almost nonexistent. Provenance: The Rufus Woodward Archive sold at Alexander Autographs February 2007. American surgeon and gynecologist who studied in Paris under Mssrs. Gerhard, Michel and Ricord and became one of the earliest proponents in the use of Chloroform. His groundbreaking and innovative surgical procedures are said to have saved thousands of lives and extended the lifespan of thousands more.

        The Ingoldsby legends. By Thomas Ingoldsby, Esq.

      Richard Bentley, London 1852 - Fifth edition, 3 volumes, 8vo, orig. blue cloth, gilt decorated spines; a fine, bright set, with engraved title-pp. and 19 engraved plates after George Cruikshank and John Leech. See Cohn 50 for a description of the first edition of each series, issued in 1840, 1842, and 1847 respectively. "Although he was continually throwing off humorous verse with great freedom and spirit, The Ingoldsby Legends would probably never have existed but for [Barham's] desire to aid his old friend and schoolfellow, the publisher Bentley, in Bentley's Miscellany, commenced under the editorship of Charles Dickens in January 1837 . "The Spectre of Tappington" opened the series, and was speedily succeeded by a number of others, at first derived from the legendary lore of the author's ancestral locality in Kent, but soon enriched by satires on the topics of the day and subjects of pure invention, or borrowed from history . The success of the Legends was pronounced from the first, and when published collectively . they at once took a high place in humorous literature which they have ever since retained" (DNB).

        LETTER OF GENERAL SAM HOUSTON, TO GENERAL SANTA ANNA.

      Washington:: Congressional Globe office,. 1852. 8pp, disbound, light spotting, Good+. This is the first separate printing of Houston's "caustic open letter to Santa Anna." It was "written when Texas was smarting under the March, 1842, raid of Mexico on San Antonio" [Streeter]. It ends, as Streeter observes, with the "bombastic" statement, "Ere the banner of Mexico shall triumphantly float upon the banks of the Sabine, the Texian standard of the single star, borne by the Anglo-Saxon race, shall display its bright folds in Liberty's triumph, on the isthmus of Darien." Rader 1948. Streeter, Texas 542 note. Not in Eberstadt, Decker, Soliday, Graff, Raines.

        Etudes cliniques. Traité théorique et pratique des maladies mentales considérées dans leur nature, leur traitement, et dans leur rapport avec la médecine légale des aliénés

      2 vol. de I. (4), XVIII Nancy & Paris, Grimblot & V. Masson, 1852-1853, in-8, 2 vol. de I. (4), XVIII, 471pp, (3)pp, 13 pl. - II. (4), 600pp, 10pl, 3 tabl, demi-chagrin noir de l'époque, dos à faux nerfs, PREMIERE EDITION de cet ouvrage important et rare. 23 planches lithographiées représentant 24 portraits d'aliénés de l'asile de Maréville près de Nancy. Trois tableaux analytiques et synoptiques des maladies mentales dépliants hors-texte. Important traité qui abonde en documents et qui rapporte les cours de Morel faits à l'asile de Maréville. Bénédict-Augustin Morel (1809-1873), orphelin né à Vienne, fit ses études à Lyon où il était l'ami et le colocataire de Claude Bernard. Docteur en 1839, il travaille à Paris auprès de Falret à la Salpêtrière. En 1851, il commence à donner un cours de maladies mentales à l'asile de Maréville et, en 1856, il est nommé directeur de l'établissement de Saint-Yon. Chrétien prosélyte autrement connu pour son "Traité des dégénérescences physiques" (1857) et son "Traité des maladies mentales" (1860), Morel a posé au milieu du XIXe siècle les fondements de la théorie de l'aliénation héréditaire et de la maladie mentale comme une régression de l'espèce humaine. Ses travaux, qui découlent du darwinisme et de la théorie de la sélection naturelle des espèces, dominent la pensée en la matière durant cette période qui précède l'essor de la psychanalyse ; ils sont notamment à la base des réflexions d'Émile Zola dans les Rougon-Macquart. Cachets de la bibliothèque du Dr Carrier de Lyon. Une charnière intérieure ouverte. Étiquettes en pied des dos. Feuillets brunis, quelques rousseurs. Semelaigne I, p. 342 et suiv.

Leganti dolore metà verde. Indietro con false nervi decorate con 3 piccole cimette, reti dorate e freddo, magra e grassa. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première édition illustrée (l'originale étant parue en 6 volumes in-8 à la même date), illustrée de 2 frontispices et de 18 hors-texte, le tout sur acier et par Pilipoteaux, Riffaut, Karl Girardet... Les gravures sont assez belles et protégées sous serpentes roses. Le premier frontispice montre Louis-Philippe en famille avec Madame de Genlis, la gouvernante des enfants du roi. Reliures en demi chagrin vert. Dos à faux nerfs orné de 3 petits fleurons, de filets dorés et à froid, maigres et gras. Frottements. Bel exemplaire, relativement frais malgré quelques rares piqûres sur un papier bien blanc. On aurait pu craindre que le Dumas romancier prenne le pas sur le Dumas historien, mais il n'en est rien dans cet heureux ouvrage, très ordonné et factuel mais doué d'un sens du récit peu commun, et qui cite de nombreuses lettres, notamment dans les pièces justificatives. L'auteur n'oublie rien, depuis la naissance de Louis-Philippe jusqu'à sa chute.

        Memoria instructiva de los derechos y justas causas que tiene el gobierno de los Estados-Unidos Mexicanos, para no reconocer ni la subsistencia del privilegio concedido á Don José Garay para abrir una vía de comunicación entre dos océanos Atlántico y Pacífico por el istmo de Tehuantepec, ni la legitimidad de la cesión que aquel hizo del mismo privilegio á ciudadanos de los Estados-Unidos de la América del Norte. La pública el Ministro de Relaciones.

      Mexico: Tipografia de Vicente G. Torres, 1852. 8vo (22 cm; 8.75"). 39 pp. The quest for a faster route from the Atlantic to the Pacific than via the Roaring 40s was the cause of many a 19th-century Arctic expedition and numerous "schemes" for various canals across the Isthmus of Tehuantec, Nicaragua, and Panama. The gold rushes in California (1849) and Australia (1851) spurred not just interest but demand for a faster route.    On 1 March 1842 President Santa Anna granted José de Garay (1801?58) a concession "para construir una vía de comunicación en el Istmo de Tehuantepec." But as with all of these canal schemes, politics, money, nature, and technology posed insurmountable obstacles until the 20th century. This pamphlet of 1852 lays out the case that the Ministry of Foreign Relations presented to the public and the investors in the Tehuantepec project for cancelling Garay's concession and thus nullifying the investment in it by U.S. citizens and banks. One suspects that the terms of Santa Anna's pre?gold rush grant looked to be a major obstacle to the Mexican government's maximally benefitting from the proposed link between the oceans once many, many more people and much more cargo were travelling west; hence the obvious expediency of nullifying Santa Anna's generosity ? not that any alternative plan came quickly to fruition.         Sabin 26547. Contemporary blue stone?pattern marbled paper wrappers. Light wear, light to very light waterstain across upper outer corner not approaching text, old library markings/docketings to title-page. Very good.

      The quest for a faster route from the Atlantic to the Pacific than via the Roaring 40s was the cause of many a 19th-century Arctic expedition and numerous "schemes" for various canals across the Isthmus of Tehuantec, Nicaragua, and Panama. The gold rushes in California (1849) and Australia (1851) spurred not just interest but demand for a faster route. On 1 March 1842 President Santa Anna granted José de Garay (1801-58) a concession "para construir una vía de comunicación en el Istmo de Tehuantepec." But as with all of these canal schemes, politics, money, nature, and technology posed insurmountable obstacles until the 20th century. This pamphlet of 1852 lays out the case that the Ministry of Foreign Relations presented to the public and the investors in the Tehuantepec project for cancelling Garay's concession and thus nullifying the investment in it by U.S. citizens and banks. One suspects that the terms of Santa Anna's pre-gold rush grant looked to be a major obstacle to the Mexican government's maximally benefitting from the proposed link between the oceans once many, many more people and much more cargo were travelling west; hence the obvious expediency of nullifying Santa Anna's generosity -- not that any alternative plan came quickly to fruition.

        [Notes, annotations and references, used as source material for an important article on Abel Tasman, published in 1887].[Amsterdam, Batavia, etc., ca. 1883-1887]. 2 single-leaf letters, 3 postcards and 40 leaves and slips, many pasted up on 6 leaves of a discarded printed catalogue. Kept together by a small contemporary folder with "Tasman" written on the front in Dozy's hand.

      Notes, annotations and references in Dutch by Charles Marius Dozy (1852-1901), used as source material for his important article on Abel Tasman (1603-1659), the Dutch explorer most famous for his Pacific voyages of 1642 and 1644, the former including the discovery of the island of Tasmania, named after Tasman. Together with two original letters and three pre-stamped postcards by well-known archivists and librarians in the Netherlands and in Batavia in the Dutch East Indies (now Jakarta, Indonesia), sending notes about relevant documents in their collections. Dozy published his article using many of these notes as, "Abel Janszoon Tasman", Bijdragen tot de taal-, land- en volkenkunde van Nederlandsch Indië, 36 (1887), pp. 308-331. It revealed a great deal of new information about Tasman's life and served as the foundation for much later scholarship.Some browning and Dozy apparently made a cut into one leaf and stopped when he realized that it also had notes on the back, but the collection is generally in very good condition.

        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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Moore sent her instead this edition. Please ask for more images. George Augustus Moore (24 February 1852 21 January 1933) was an Irish novelist, short-story writer, poet, art critic, memoirist and dramatist. Moore came from a Roman Catholic landed family who lived at Moore Hall in Carra, County Mayo. He originally wanted to be a painter, and studied art in Paris during the 1870s. There, he befriended many of the leading French artists and writers of the day. As a naturalistic writer, he was amongst the first English-language authors to absorb the lessons of the French realists, and was particularly influenced by the works of Émile Zola. His writings influenced James Joyce, according to the literary critic and biographer Richard Ellmann, and, although Moore's work is sometimes seen as outside the mainstream of both Irish and British literature, he is as often regarded as the first great modern Irish novelist. George Moore's family had lived in Moore Hall, near Lough Carra, County Mayo for almost a century. The house was built by his paternal great-grandfatheralso called George Moorewho had made his fortune as a wine merchant in Alicante. The novelist's grandfather was a friend of Maria Edgeworth, and author of An Historical Memoir of the French Revolution. His great-uncle, John Moore, was president of the short-lived Republic of Connacht during the Irish Rebellion of 1798. The novelist's father, George Henry Moore, sold his stable and hunting interests during the Great Irish Famine, and from 18471857, served as an Independent Member of Parliament (MP) for Mayo in the British House of Commons. George Henry was renowned as a fair landlord, fought to uphold the rights of tenants, and was a founder of the Catholic Defence Association. His estate consisted of 5000 ha (50 km) in Mayo, with a further 40 ha in County Roscommon. In 1868, Moore's father was again elected MP for Mayo and the family moved to London the following year. Here, Moore senior tried, unsuccessfully, to have his son follow a career in the military though, prior to this, he attended the School of Art in the South Kensington Museum where his achievements were no better. He was freed from any burden of education when his father died in 1870.[13] Moore, though still a minor, inherited the family estate that was valued at 3,596. He handed it over to his brother Maurice to manage and in 1873, on attaining his majority, moved to Paris to study art. It took him several attempts to find an artist who would accept him as a pupil. Monsieur Jullian, who had previously been a shepherd and circus masked man, took him on for 40 francs a month.[14] At Académie Jullian he met Lewis Weldon Hawkins who became Moore's flat-mate and whose trait, as a failed artist, show up in Moore's own characters.[13] He met many of the key artists and writers of the time, including Pissarro, Degas, Renoir, Monet, Daudet, Mallarmé, Turgenev and, above all, Zola, who was to prove an influential figure in Moore's subsequent development as a writer. While still in Paris his first book, a collection of lyric poems called The Flowers of Passion, was self-published in 1877. The poems were derivative, maliciously reviewed by the critics who were offended by some of the depravities in store for moralistic readers and was withdrawn by Moore. He was forced to return to Ireland in 1880 to raise 3,000 to pay debts incurred on the family estate due to his tenants refusing to pay their rent and the drop in agricultural prices. During his time back in Mayo, he gained a reputation as a fair landlord, continuing the family tradition of not evicting tenants and refusing to carry firearms when travelling round the estate. While in Ireland, he decided to abandon art and move to London to become a professional writer. There he published his second poetry collection, Pagan Poems, in 1881. These early poems reflect his interest in French symbolism and are now almost entirely neglected. In 1886 Moore published Confessions of a Young Man, a lively and energetic memoir about his 20s spent in Paris and London among bohemian artists. It contains a substantial amount of literary criticism for which it has received a fair amount of praise, for instance The Modern Library chose it in 1917 to be included in the series as "one of the most significant documents of the passionate revolt of English literature against the Victorian tradition." During the 1880s, Moore began work on a series of novels in a realist style. His first novel, A Modern Lover (1883) was a three-volume work, as preferred by the circulating libraries, and deals with the art scene of the 1870s and 1880s in which many characters are identifiably real. The circulating libraries in England banned the book because of its explicit portrayal of the amorous pursuits of its hero. At this time the British circulating libraries, such as Mudie's Select Library, controlled the market for fiction and the public, who paid fees to borrow their books, expected them to guarantee the morality of the novels available. His next book, a novel in the realist style, A Mummers Wife (1885) was also regarded as unsuitable by Mudie's and W H Smith refused to stock it on their news-stalls. Despite this, during its first year of publication the book was in its fourteenth edition mainly due to the publicity garnered by its opponents. As with A Modern Lover, his two next novels, A Mummers Wife and A Drama in Muslin, were banned by Mudie's and Smith's. In response Moore declared war on the circulating libraries by publishing two provocative pamphlets Literature at Nurse and Circulating Morals. In these, he complained that the libraries profit from salacious popular fiction while refusing to stock serious literary fiction. Moore's publisher Henry Vizetelly began to issue unabridged mass-market translations of French realist novels that endangered the moral and commercial influence of the circulating libraries around this time. In 1888, the circulating libraries fought back by encouraging the House of Commons to implement laws to stop 'the rapid spread of demoralising literature in this country'. However, Vizetelly was brought to court by the National Vigilance Association (NVA) for 'obscene libel'. The charge arose due to the publication of the English translation of Zola's La Terre. A second case was brought the following year in order to force implementation of the original judgement and to remove all of Zola's works. This led to the 70-year-old publisher becoming involved in the literary cause. Throughout Moore stayed loyal to Zola's publisher, and on 22 September 1888, about a month before the trial, wrote a letter that appeared in the St. James Gazette. In it Moore suggested it was improper that Vizetelly's fate be determined by a jury of twelve tradesmen, explaining it would be preferable to be judged by three novelists. Moore pointed out that the NVA could make the same claims against such books as Madame Bovary and Gautier's Mademoiselle de Maupin, as their morals are equivalent to Zola's, though their literary merits might differ. Because of his willingness to tackle such issues as prostitution, extramarital sex and lesbianism, Moore's novels were initially met with disapprobation. However, as the public's taste for realist fiction grew, this subsided. Moore began to find success as an art critic with the publication of books such as Impressions and Opinions (1891) and Modern Painting (1893)which was the first significant attempt to introduce the Impressionists to an English audience. By this time Moore was first able to live from the proceeds of his literary work. Other realist novels by Moore from this period include A Drama in Muslin (1886), a satiric story of the marriage trade in Anglo-Irish society that hints at same-sex relationships among the unmarried daughters of the gentry, and Esther Waters (1894), the story of an unmarried housemaid who becomes pregnant and is abandoned by her footman lover. Both of these books have remained almost constantly in print since their first publication. His 1887 novel A Mere Accident is an attempt to merge his symbolist and realist influences. He also published a collection of short stories: Celibates (1895). In 1901, Moore returned to Ireland to live in Dublin at the suggestion of his cousin and friend, Edward Martyn. Martyn had been involved in Ireland's cultural and dramatic movements for some years, and was working with Lady Gregory and William Butler Yeats to establish the Irish Literary Theatre. Moore soon became deeply involved in this project and in the broader Irish Literary Revival. He had already written a play, The Strike at Arlingford (1893), which was produced by the Independent Theatre. The play was the result of a challenge between Moore and George Robert Sims over Moore's criticism of all contemporary playwrights in Impressions and Opinions. Moore won the one hundred pound bet made by Sims for a stall to witness an "unconventional" play by Moore, though Moore insisted the word "unconventional" be excised.[24] George Moore lived at No. 4 Upper Ely Place at the start of the 20th century The Irish Literary Theatre staged his satirical comedy The Bending of the Bough (1900), adapted from Martyn's The Tale of a Town, originally rejected by the theatre but unselfishly given to Moore for revision, and Martyn's Maeve. Staged by the company who would later become the Abbey Theatre, The Bending of the Bough was a historically important play and introduced realism into Irish literature. Lady Gregory wrote that it: "hits impartially all round". The play was satire on Irish political life, and as it was unexpectedly nationalist, was considered the first to deal with a vital question that had appeared in Irish life. Diarmuid and Grania, a poetic play in prose co-written with Yeats in 1901, was also staged by the theatre, with incidental music by Elgar. After this production Moore took up pamphleteering on behalf of the Abbey, and parted company with the dramatic movement. Moore published two books of prose fiction set in Ireland around this time a second book of short stories, The Untilled Field (1903) and a novel, The Lake (1905). The Untilled Field deal with themes of clerical interference in the daily lives of the Irish peasantry, and of the issue of emigration. The stories were originally written for translation into Irish, in order to serve as models for other writers working in the language. Three of the translations were published in the New Ireland Review, but publication was then paused due to a perceived anti-clerical sentiment. In 1902 the entire collection was translated by Tadhg Ó Donnchadha and Pádraig Ó Súilleabháin, and published in a parallel-text edition by the Gaelic League as An-tÚr-Ghort. Moore later revised the texts for the English edition. These stories were influenced by Turgenev's A Sportsman's Sketches, a book recommended to Moore by W. K. Magee, a sub-librarian of the National Library of Ireland, and had earlier suggested that Moore "was best suited to become Ireland's Turgenev". The tales are recognised by some as representing the birth of the Irish short story as a literary genre. In 1903, following a disagreement with his brother Maurice over the religious upbringing of his nephews, Moore declared himself to be Protestant. His conversion was announced in a letter to the Irish Times newspaper. Moore remained in Dublin until 1911. In 1914, he published a gossipy, three-volume memoir of h

        SMITH'S ILLUSTRATED ASTRONOMY, Designed for the Use of the Public or Common Schools in the United States

      New York: Cady & Burgess, 1852. Hardcover. Good. Illustrated with numerous original diagrams (frontispiece, with 28 full-page plates and a textual illustration). New York: Cady & Burgess, 1852. Tenth edition. In his preface, Smith writes "It has been the object of the author of this little manual of Astronomical science, to present all the distinguishing principles in physical Astronomy with as few words as possible; but with such occular demonstrations, by way of diagrams and maps, as shall make the subject easily understood." This visual approach made Smith's Illustrated Astronomy the most popular American astronomy book of the 19th century, and it remains one of the most historically and artistically important manifestations of astral iconography. Quarto. The original pictorial paper-covered boards have been expertly rebacked with a new black morocco spine. Some occasional mild soiling to the contents, with the typical minor offsetting opposite the plates. The boards are shelfworn and soiled, with a minor scratch to the front panel and a few small stains.

        Letters of Percy Bysshe Shelley. With an Introductory Essay by Robert Browning.

      London: Edward Moxon, Dover Street 1852 vi, [1], [1 blank], 165, [2], [1 blank] pp. - 8 pp. (List of Books). Ganzleder Handeinband mit reicher Vergoldung, Octavo, ca. 197 x 124 mm. (Einband minimalst berieben, erste und letzte Blätter braunfleckig, sehr schönes Exemplar) Contemporary olive morocco (203 x 133 x 17,5 mm), spine with five raised bands, panelled and lettered in gilt, richly gilt with gilt fleural tools and lines, boards with gilt line panels. Top edge gilt, burgundy endleaves. Bound by Riviere & Son, and signed on upper turn-in.. This is the first edition of the Browning Essay. Edward Moxon bought twenty three letters at a Sotheby & Wilkinson sale, 12 May 1851. The vendor of these letters was the bookseller William White who had obtained them, with other items including Byron forgeries, from `Major George Gordon de Luna Byron`, also known as DeBibler, who claimed to be the illegitimate son of the poet Byron by a Spanish lady. The son of Sir Francis Palgrave realised that Letter XXI to William Godwin from Florence was cribbed from a letter to his father.\"An ingenious forgery perpetrated by an impostor, claiming to be the [natural] son of Lord Byron. Two genuine letters, which happened to be in Moxon`s hands, were included. The fraud was discovered, to the chagrin of Browning and Moxon, who at once destroyed all obtainable copies of the book\" (Granniss).The two genuine letters in the present volume are No. V to Sir James Henry Lawrence, August 17, 1812 (= Ingpen #186; de Ricci 186) and No. XXIII to Keats, Pisa, July 27, 1820 (= Ingpen #484; de Ricci 484).\"One of the most ingenious literary forgeries of modern times is recalled by a rare work which a London bookdealer now is offering for sale for $375. It is an octavo volume published in 1852 by Moxon and entitled `Letters of P. B. Shelley, with an introductory essay by Robert Browning. Browning really wrote the introduction, but not one of the twenty-five letters in it is by Shelley. These letters purported to have been sent by Percy Bysshe Shelley, the eminent English poet, to various of his friends. They were clever imitations of his hand-writing, and bore the postmarks of cities in which it was known that Shelley had resided. The book made a sensation. Browning`s preface is one of his most admired pieces of prose writing. Moxon sent copies of the work to a number of distinguished literary men, among others Lord Alfred Tennyson. Francis Turner Palgrove, son of Sir Francis Palgrove, the historian, was at the time a guest of Lord Tennyson. He picked up the book one day and opened it at a letter from Shelley to Godwin, his father-in-law, which seemed strangely familiar to him. He read on and found that the letter was a plagiarism of an article which his father had contributed to the Quarterly Review in 1840. Moxon, when informed of this discovery, said that he had bought the letters at a public sale, and that they seemed authentic. The handwriting appeared genuine, the seal was Shelley`s and the addresses bore the stamp of the Post Offices of the italian towns where Shelley had lived. It happened that, at the same sale, the poet`s son, Sir Percy Florence Shelley, had bought other letters of his father, which were of a private and personal character. These letters were found to be at utter variance with well-known facts. Moxon at once suppressed the book, the auctionneer said that the letters had come to him from a bookseller named W. White. White, in turn, said that he had bought them from an unknown woman who claimed to have received them from Fletcher, Lord Byron`s servant. Further search revealed that behind this unknown woman was the forger, George Gordon Byron, alias De Gibler. This adventurer bore a striking resemblance to Lord Byron, had assumed his name, and had passed himself off as Byron`s natural son. He almost succeeded in palming off on a publisher some unedited remains of Lord Byron. As soon as the facts about the letters became known he disappeared (...)\" (New York Times, February 26, 1911: \"Shelley`s forged letters. Rare copy for sale in London, the work of G. G.
