1852. "Uncle Tom's Cabin or Life Among the Lowly" by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Published by John P. Jewett & Company, Boston, 1852. First Edition, First Printing. Issued in two volumes. First issue with no later printings present on the title pages, and with Hobart & Robbins on the copyright pages. Illustrated. Two 12mo volumes [5" x 7 3/8"], with 312 and 322 pages respectively. A married set, but both in the original brown cloth binding and in similar condition. Volume II is an historic, and possibly unique copy as it is dated and inscribed on the publication date of the book, March 20th 1852. This is obviously the earliest dated inscription possible for Uncle Tom's Cabin, and makes this copy particularly desirable. Three signatures that were previously missing were replaced from another copy of the same publication, making the text complete. The books are in good antiquarian condition. Wear and soiling to the covers and spines, with moisture stains to the spine of Volume I. Previous owner's inscriptions on front endpapers. Minor scattered foxing throughout the textblocks.

1852. Some browning and soiling, few documents torn with occasional loss, but very good overall.. 55 Documents. 111 pp. Various sizes. An extensive collection chronicling the Addom's family (alternately spelled Addams), a founding family of Plattsburgh New York including the acquisition of the original land forming the town of Plattsburgh from Zephaniah Platt on which Major John Addams' Plattsburgh home was constructed in 1790. "Zephaniah Platt, Peter Tappen, Zaccheus Newcomb, Nathaniel Platt, Platt Rogers, Charles Platt, Thomas Treadwell, Simon R. Reeves, Melancton Smith, Jonathan Lawrence, Israel Smith and John Addams met at the house of Judge Zephaniah Platt in Poughkeepsie and mutually agreed 'to be jointly concerned in the building of a saw-mill, grist-mill and a forge on the river Saranac the next summer, each to advance an equal proportion of money. I could wish none but sober, industrious men to settle in said Township, such as bid fair to do well for themselves' said Judge Platt in offering terms to early settlers'" on 12/30/1784 (Clinton County Historical Association, December 30, 2015). 28 indentures show the evolving land acquisitions of John Addoms around Plattsburgh and later in Vermont, where he moved his family, once he foresaw that the Cumberland Head area in New York would be a route for invasion during the War of 1812. 18 letters, some to Major Addoms, but mostly between Addoms' children, Rev. John Townsend and Charity, detail not only family life, but the rigors and horrors of the War of 1812. 9 other manuscript documents. A family background and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fifth edition. Inscribed on the title-page and with an autograph note to a Miss Spicer, presumably by the author or a close family member, both named "Bailey". Sheets have been trimmed down (to make a suitable surface for the painting) as evidenced by the loss of part of the title-page inscription. At least one holograph correction, probably in the hand of the author, on page 73. Octavo. [iv], 562 [2] pages. Fore-edge decorated with a fine original watercolor painting of Pulteney Bridge in Bath, that appears as the sheet edges are leaned over. The painting is hidden under the gilt when the book is properly closed and straight. In an exquisite fine binding of dark blue straight-grained morocco paneled in blind and bordered in gilt. Spine gilt extra. Board edges and turn-ins gilt. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. A lovely, near fine copy with just minimal rubbing to the binding. Philip James Bailey was considered the father of the Spasmodic Poets, born in 1816 and died in 1902. His main work was this long poem, Festus, which was originally published anonymously in 1839 and in an expanded second edition in 1845.

William Wales and John Roberts (Publishers)
Nashville, 1852. FIRST EDITION. Two volumes. viii, 374 [i.e. 376]; vii, 376pp., plus thirty- one plates. Bound in original marbled boards, which are present but detached. The text block in each is broken into sections, an excellent and worthy candidate of professional rebinding to your taste. Some dampstaining, and foxing throughout, more noticeable on some of the plates. 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 all but unobtainable. Apparently, few copies of the book were printed, judging from the very few times one finds records of its sale." - Allen.

Herbarium / Aquatic Album
Plymouth, Llandudno, Worthing, Penmaen Mawr and Dunoon: , 1852-1858. Plymouth, Llandudno, Worthing, Penmaen Mawr and Dunoon, 1852-1858. Large 4to. 29 sheets of mounted sea-weeds, consisting of approximately 80 specimens. Each page with manuscript captions giving dates (1852-1858) and places of collection, including Plymouth and Worthing (England), Llandudno and Penmaenmawr (Wales) and Dunoon (Scotland). In some instances the seaweed specimens have been arranged decoratively. A contemporary manuscript poem (by E.L. Aveline?) has been penned to a front page: "Call us not weeds / We are flowers of the sea / For lovely and bright / And gay tinted are we..." Housed in a superb contemporary album of straight-grained mahogony morocco, with folding flap to the fore-edge, secured to the rear board with a metal pin and clasp (lock no longer functional), extensive gilt and blind stamped decoration to the boards and flap. The album opens to reveal full pockets to front and back with leather gusseted sides, each pocketed faced with navy blue straight-grained morocco; the flap also lined internally with the same; marbled free endpapers. Binding very good, lightly rubbed with a few small, professional and inconspicuous repairs to the head/tail of the spine and flap. The specimens are generally in a very good state of preservation. Six blank leaves at end clearly discern the watermark (Britannia) and the name of the papermaker, Joynson (of Orpington). Highly curious, lavishly bound Victorian herbarium album, containing actual aquatic specimens. Such an album as this can only be described … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRAY, James. Life in Bombay, and the Neighbouring Out-Stations. London, Richard Bentley, 1852. Large 8vo. Original pink cloth, ornamented and lettered in gilt; pp. [2, advertisement], xvi, 350, 12 tinted lithographic plates; binding a little faded and marked, as usual, five dots of sealing wax remnants inside front cover, very light spotting only here and there; a very good and bright copy in the original binding.First edition. 'The public has been so long accustomed to contemplate India, either through the magic glass of imagination, as the land of gorgeous palaces and inexhaustible treasures, or through the scarcely less deceptive halo of military glory as the battle-field of contending armies and opposing dynasties; that we feel some serious misgivings, whilst we invite them to survey her with the natural eye, as she really is, in these sober days of peace, when the "hurly-burly" of our battles lost and won has died away, and all that now is heard to remind us of them, is an occasional shot resounding through the Khyber Pass, and re-echoed from the far-distant mountains of Affghanistan' (Preface). That five years before the 'Indian Mutiny'! The author was a long-term resident of Bombay and Daily Telegraph correspondent, and had enough opportunity to describe daily life in the city and surroundings.#2097763

Fox who died of cholera, before his book came out. In 1852, Lord Dalhousie sent Commodore George Lambert to Burma to settle some disputed points of the Treaty of Yandabo between the countries. The Burmese immediately made concessions, however Lambert provoked a naval confrontation by blockading the port of Rangoon and seizing the King Pagan's royal ship (illustrated here) and thereby started the Second Anglo-Burmese War which resulted in the East India Company annexing large parts of hitherto unoccupied Burma. Provenance: 'In 1870 William Strang Steel launched W. Strang Steel and Company in Burma and the company's first rice mill was established in 1871. A London office - Steel Brothers and Company - was opened in partnership with James Alison Steel in 1873.

STOWE, Harriet Beecher
Boston: John P. Jewett, 1852. 1852 1st ed Uncle Tom's Cabin Beecher Stowe Slavery Abolition Civil War 2v Set"A moral battle cry for freedom!"- Langston Hughes on Uncle Tom's Cabin. No other work of literature helped lay the groundwork for the American Civil War quite like Harriet Beecher Stowe's 'Uncle Tom's Cabin.' In turn, many historians have 'credited' this novel with being the contributing factor to the Civil War. This incredible story portrays slave families being torn apart through being sold and resold by slave masters. This story had a polarizing reaction. Over 300,000 of the first edition had to be printed, but remarkably was banned in most of the American South! Even still, it was the most-popular and highest-selling book in the 19th-century and is on the Grolier American 100!A charming first edition set of an American classic that "helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War!"

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.

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.

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.

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]
