William Shakespeare
Hartford CT: Silas Andrus and Son, 1852. This auction is for a fabulous antique book - William Shakspeare's Complete Works - Dramatic and Poetic! I cannot find a similar book online. What is particularly unusual about this book is the intricately gilded cover. The book was published by Silas Andrus and Son in 1852. It spells Shakespeare as "Shakspeare." The text is "from the corrected copy of the late George Steevens, Esq with glossarial notes and a sketch of the author's life." The book is illustrated with lovely engravings by C.W. Sharp, M. Retzsch, and others. It is part of a 2 volume set (this auction is only for Volume 1). The book is huge and thick- hundreds of pages long. It is about 10" x 6 1/2". It is almost 3" thick. Included are: - Sketch of the Life of Shakespeare - Tempest - Two Gentlemen of Verona - Merry Wives of Windsor - Twelfth Night, or What You Will - Measure for Measure - Much Ado About Nothing - Midsummer Night's Dream - Love's Labour's Lost - Merchant of Venice - As You Like It - All's Well That Ends Well - Taming of the Shrew - Winter's Tale - Comedy of Errors - Macbeth - King John - King Richard II - King Henry (several kings, several parts) - Troilus and Cressida - Timon of Athens - Coriolanus - Cymbeline - Titus Andronicus - Periclues, Prince of Typre - King Lear - Romeo and Juliet - Othello - The Rape of Lucrece and many, many more!

Mundy spent five years in Sydney, using this as his base for 'rambles' to the interior of New South Wales, New Zealand, Tasmania, and Victoria, where he visited the newly-discovered gold field of the Bathurst District. The account of this residence is accompanied by fifteen well-executed lithographs, the first of which depicts a disturbing "Rencounter" between "Police and Blacks." Mundy's work was well-received and passed into four editions by 1859.Mundy arrived in Sydney on the Agincourt in June 1846 as deputy adjutant general of the military forces in Australia. Mundy 'accompanied his cousin Governor Sir Charles FitzRoy on several outback tours in New South Wales, and he visited Victoria, Van Diemen's Land and New Zealand. Aristocratic by birth and conventional in temper, he showed in his books a discerning eye, a lively pen, a keen sense of humour and a marked streak of sturdy common sense.

[EVANS, David Morier]. City Men and City Manners. The City; Or, the Physiology of London Business; With Sketches on 'Change, and at the Coffee Houses. London, Groombridge & Sons, 1852. Small 8vo. Recent half-calf over marbled boards, spine with raised bands and with gilt-stamped morocco lettering-piece; pp. vii, 172, 16 (advertisements), [8, advertisements]; title-page with browning to margins otherwise a very good copy of a rarity.First edition, based on Evans' 1845 The City, largely rewritten, enlarged and updated. The Welshman David Morier Evans (1819-1874) was one of the early financial journalists of London and worked for several newspapers. 'In addition to his regular work, Evans was connected with several other commercial and financial periodicals, among them the Bankers' Magazine, to which he was one of the principal contributors, The Bullionist, and the Stock Exchange Gazette. He also conducted the literary and statistical departments of the Bankers' Almanac and Diary. He recognized the significant role of 'panics' in nineteenth-century financial history' (DNB). The present work, anonymously published, deals with the stock exchange, a mechanism and it's social inclusivity, which had made it a mysterious entity to large sways of the British public. One of the most graphic and insightful descriptions of the London stock exchange in mid-19th-century Britain, financial practice and malpractice.#2094656

Deborah Dreadnought, Secretary to the Society for Promoting "The Rights of Woman". From the designs by W. S. Reed
London: Ackermann & Co., 1852. First edition. Full Morocco. Very Good. 4to. 23.5 by 16.5 cm. 22 pp., with 12 hand-colored plates. Ackermann satirizes the fashion for Bloomers, named after Amelia Bloomer, an American who introduced the style in 1851. It was not just about the clothes, for it was seen as a part of the women's movement, embraced by women who thought it liberating, decried by those who identified it with sin, and it became the grist for the lecture circuit. Seldom in commerce, with only two auction records found -- 1981 and 1919, and no other copies listed on the Internet for sale at the time of our cataloguing. OCLC First Search notes copies at Harvard, Morgan, Princeton, British Library, Danish Nat. Lib., and a defective copy at Murdoch Univ. Condition: Two text leaves (3/4, and 9/10, are facsimile copies. Plate III, "The Amazon", has a small paper restoration where there was an edge chip. Minor scattered soiling besides. Overall, the plates are in fine condition.

1852. For the voyage: "Voyage of H.M.S. 'Calypso,' Captain Worth, to the Pacific", in: The nautical magazine, 1852, pp. 401-412, 486-495, 634-640 & 1853, pp. 361-367, 420-430. Album of watercolour drawings made aboard the sloop HMS Calypso during a voyage through the Pacific from 1847 to 1849. The drawings show Acajutla (El Salvador), Realejo (Nicaragua), Puntarenas (Costa Rica), Tahiti and Vava'u (Tonga) and depict landscapes, architectural details, the interiors of buildings (a particular favourite of the artist) and (of varying quality) the inhabitants of several of the cities and islands. The order of the drawings in the album appears to be random, with drawings made on the same location being apart from one another and also not reflecting the order in which the ship visited these locations. One drawing was forcibly removed at a certain point and only a stub showing part of a church remains. Three drawings from a different album, but almost certainly drawn on the same voyage, are loosely inserted.Although the artist is unknown, the album's paste-down is inscribed "William E. Shaw from P.K. Larke. Berners Street Oxford Street London". Whether P.K. Larke was the artist, the giver of the (empty) album, or the stationer where the album was bought, is unknown. William Edward Shaw (ca. 1820-post 1869) was the naval instructor aboard the Calypso and as such responsible for the education of the midshipmen. Perhaps Larke was one of his pupils. Reference is made in the album to several other officers aboard Calypso. A drawing of a "Girl at Acajutla" is noted as "from J.J.L. Donne … [Click Below for Full Description]

He was famous for his satirical works, particularly Vanity Fair, a panoramic portrait of English society. After his education, Thackeray travelled Europe, and then squandered his inheritance on gambling and unfortunate business enterprises. He turned to art, which he studied in Paris, but did not pursue the profession. After marrying Isabella Shawe, Thackeray took to writing and journalism to support himself and his family. His novels became moderately successful, along with his works for magazines such as Fraser's Magazine, Foreign Quartley Review, Punch and the Morning Chornicle.

Collins, Wilkie
London: Richard Bentley, 1852. Hardcover. 8vo. THE FIRST EDITION of Collins's scarce second novel. This is Collins's second full length novel and his first set in contemporary times. This novel of first love, intrigue, and betrayal was considered "sensational" by many, and it had mixed reviews, with some referring to it as "revolting." In his dedication he writes that he "has not hesitated to violate the conventionalities of sentimental fiction." In later editions, he did shorten the text and tone down the violence. "In Basil, he found his true métier as an expert in mystery, suspense, and crime" (Oxford Companion to English Literature). Three volumes bound in two. Bound in three quarter tan calf with marbled paper covered boards, with red leather labels with gilt titles to the spines of both volumes. There is some rubbing and scuffing to leather. Gilt tooling to compartments on spine, some of which has been rubbed. Full marbled edges and marbled end pages. These books remain quite attractive, though there is minor rubbing to the leather along the joints and minor bumping to the corners. There is minor foxing to the first and last few pages of both volumes but otherwise the interior is very bright and clean. LIT/092906. Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition]

1852. Smith and Elder. First edition. As far as I can see, there isn't another first edition copy of this book available to buy on the internet. There are plenty of 20th and 21st century reprints. This copy is in its original binding. The cover has a closed 3cm tear running downwards from top of spine - see photos. The endpapers are sunned and the first has the author's name written in pencil and in full: '[Eneas Sweetland] Dallas'. There are pencil mark ups on the title page and preceding page - see photo. And there are few more mark ups on the text pages (five at a quick rough count). The book's 294 pages are tightly bound and otherwise extremely clean with no foxing, no tears and no folds. There is a 5cm tear where the endpaper has come away from the inside back page - see photo. All the pages have gold/gilt edges. Wikipedia mentions this book in its biography of Dallas: "His first publication in which he proved his mastery of this line of investigation was entitled Poetics, an Essay on Poetry, a work which he produced in 1852, while he resided in London."

Like them it was received with universal acclamation, was translated into French and German, shaped the European conception of its subject matter throughout the nineteenth century, and still merits respect as a monument of industrious Victorian scholarship....The History is...a paean in praise of political liberty, and he glorified the Athenian democracy as fervently as he misrepresented the despotism of the 'barbarian" Alexander the Great.
