Sprache: Französisch Bestell-Nr: 25175 Bemerkungen: Easton, Marbling a history and bibliography p. 156. - "First edition of a very rare and quite wonderful book, notable especially for its four leaves with 32 mounted samples of marbled and decorated papers. It is an important work historically and is mentioned many times by Richard Wolfe in his Marbled papers (indeed, the only other copy we have owned, or for that matter ever seen, went to Mr. Wolfe about ten years ago). He gives a summary of the contents on his page 28, and suggests that Fichtenberg was German or German-trained; further on (p. 46) he refers to this 'extremely fine and valuable 1852 treatise.' Fichtenberg deals with much more than just marbled papers; some of them were chemically made patterns. The varieties of marbled papers are described by Wolfe on his p. 114. One of the most elusive and most charming of the nineteenth marbled paper books."

Robles
Barcina, La Habana, 1852. Very important book of the history of CUBA XIX century. Printed in Imprenta y papelería de Barcina, Havana, 1852. 332,[2]pp. plus lithographic frontispiece, twenty engraved plates, and numerous in-text woodcuts. In Spanish. Modern half morocco and marbled boards. Very good condition. One of the most important works of costumbrismo in Latin America, and the first collection of its kind in Cuba, with contributions from several notable Cuban writers, and illustrated by Victor Patricio de Landaluze. 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, dialog … [Click Below for Full Description]

Manuscript.
1852. I'm quite excited about this journal. Not only because it has significant historical content - which it does - but also because it was kept by a real, for lack of a better term, "character." Though "wise guy," "odd ball" or "cracker-barrel philosopher" might be equally suitable descriptors for journal-keeper B.C. Townsend. Here's how he begins the second part of his journal: "... Anybody had told me 2 months ago that I would be so soon off on another voyage around Cape Horn I'd shoot em or bust. One don't know when ones taking comfort till one don't take it. Thems my sentiments. No more theaters, stewed oysters or mint juleps... B.C. Townsend Ship Severn. Alias Tub as she has proved herself on several occasions. Mar 7, 1852." According to Fairburn the "Severn" was a 573 ton merchant ship built just before the clipper era in Medford, Mass. She departed New York in November, 1851, bound for San Francisco. On December 27th Townsend makes what will pass as a typical observation for this portion of the voyage, "Crew employed as usual on rigging with plenty to do + poor me to do it." They endured a typically stormy passage around Cape Horn (accompanied by Townsend's wry observations), and by March they'd reached Tulcahuano. "Crew employed on rigging as the old tub slowly wends her way..." and by the end of May were in San Francisco. Then the fun begins, as Townsend wanders about the docks and the town - both well known to him - and reports on what he sees, naming old shipmates and former ships. He also reveals that the "Severn" was carrying a cargo of lumber and staves. A … [Click Below for Full Description]

Manuscrit d'une « Ronde avec accompagnement de piano » composée par la Reine Hortense, protectrice des Maisons Impériales Napoléon. Dans la lettre qui l'accompagne, le secrétaire des commandements de la Reine précise que cette composition est destinée aux élèves de Saint-Denis. Il est joint un manuscrit (brouillon) écrit en 1852 (11 pp. in-folio), intitulé « Détails historiques sur la Maison Impériale Napoléon de St Denis » qui donne d'intéressants détails sur le rôle et l'implication de la reine Hortense envers la maison de Saint-Denis, et qui nous éclaire sur le présent manuscrit : « Et à cette occasion on verra sans doute ici avec intérêt une pièce dont les paroles et la musique furent composées par elle pour être chantée par les élèves en présence de l'Empereur, à l'une de ses visites [...] ». [La reine Hortense était amatrice de musique, et avait composé la mélodie du Beau Dunois, plus connue sous le titre de Partant pour la Syrie. Cette romance composée à Malmaison en 1807, dont les paroles furent écrites par le comte Alexandre de Laborde, eut rapidement un grand succès.

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. * 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.

Stowe, Harriet Beecher
Boston: John P. Jewett & Company, 1852. Hard Cover. First Edition. Very Good. Two volumes. First edition, first printing. One of 5,000 copies. Bound in the original publisher's brown extra gilt S cloth binding. A very good copy with some wear and chipping to the spine ends, corners worn and some fading to cloth with a small patch of discoloration to the rear board of volume II, small former owner signature to front endpapers, some light scattered foxing and spots, but generally very clean. BAL 19343. Originally published serially from June 5, 1851-April 1, 1852 in the American abolitionist periodical The National Era, Uncle Tom's Cabin is an anti-slavery novel about the human cost of slavery in the American South. Inspired by the increased stringency of the Fugitive Slave Law after the Compromise of 1850, the novel features two African-American slaves trying to preserve their families in spite of their abusive oppression. Tom, the title character, is a religious man and chooses to work within the slavery system to ensure his family's protection. Alternately, the other main character, Eliza Harris, chooses to flee slavery and escape to freedom in Canada. Throughout the text, Stowe preaches her own Christian beliefs as a means to abolishing slavery, encouraging compassion, mercy, and forgiveness as solutions. Published in book form on March 20, 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin was an instant bestseller, with 300,000 copies sold in the United States and 1.5 million copies sold in Great Britain within the first year. Due to its immediate popularity, Uncle Tom's Cabin has a complicated p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Basterot, [Barthelemy de] - MANUSCRIPT COMMENTARY ON PAUL MORPHY
Paris: Allouard et Kaeppelin, [1852]. First Edition. Contemporary half calf with marbled boards.. Very Good; some wear to the binding; frontispiece reinforced at gutter.. 8vo, [2], vi, [7] - 372 pp. + frontispiece. AN ADDITIONAL 44 pp. MANUSCRIPT WITH MOUNTED ILLUSTRATIONS OF GAMES APPENDED TO THE TEXT BY ALFRED JUMELLE. A superb association copy with an important narrative regarding chess and the social and artistic life at the Café de la Regence. The manuscript annotations and 'appendage' are by an habitué of the Café de la Regence - the chess players and social rendezvous during the 18th and 19th century at the Place du Palais-Royal and then, after 1852, at 161 rue Saint-Honoré - Alfred Jumelle, the Parisian aesthete and accomplished chess player. He was a member of numerous societies (e.g., Soc. de Géographie, Union centrale des Beaux-Arts appliqués à l'Industrie) and a frequent contributor to the journal La Stratégie and the Parisian press. The Café de la Regence played host to the greats of the game and society (Marx and Engels played there). Diderot makes note of it in his Neveu de Rameau; it was frequently cited by Philodor and Jean Jacques Rousseau. The decade of the fifties and sixties were its high point. It saw such notables as the great Paul Morphy - recorded here (alas, NOT the great "Opera" game that Morphy played on Oct. 21, 1858 at the Salle Le Peletier during the performance of Norma). On the front endpaper of this book is Jumelle's opening remark: "Le comte de Basterot m'avait fait l'honneur … [Click Below for Full Description]

STANSBURY, Howard
Lippincott, Grambo. 1852 1ed Great Salt Lake Utah Stansbury Exploration Mormon Polygamy PROVENANCE Howard Stansbury was a 19th-century engineer and explorer known for his ventures to the American west. In 1849, he was charged with the task of exploring the Great Salt Lake basin with J.W. Gunnison. The expedition resulted in Mormon hostility and trying times until Brigham Young met with them to ease the tensions. Eventually, the expedition led to improved relations with the Mormons, a better understanding of westward transportation, and a plethora of descriptions of natural findings including plants, animals, fossils, and geographical discoveries. Along with appendices, this single tome features numerous full-page and folding engraved plates, many of which are in color. This edition was published as an official edition for the Senate, the first issued edition. The second issue was later printed for the House. According to Brigham Madsen, Stansbury's Report provided the outside world with an objective look at the Mormons of Utah as well as with a scientific appraisal of the resources and fauna and flora of this section of the Great Basin.

[iii], 368pp. 66 text illustrations, 15 lithographed maps (6 folding; one of the maps containing a lithographed view on the same plate), 13 maps and plans in the text. Modern dark blue calf-backed blue paper covered boards, spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettering piece in second and third compartment. A rare "Arctic blue book" concerning Captain Horatio T. Austin and William Penny's expeditions of 1850-51 in search for Franklin. Sir John Franklin's doomed 1845 expedition, his fourth to the Arctic and third as commander, set out in 1845 to search for the fabled Northwest Passage. In September 1846 the expedition's ships became trapped in the ice off King William Island, which would be their final resting place. The crew spent the next year and a half trapped there before attempting to walk south, dying along the way in the arctic tundra, hundreds of miles from the nearest European settlements. After three years without hearing a word from the expedition, the British Admiralty launched a massive search for the missing ships. Spurred by a large reward, many expeditions from Britain and the United States set out on the hunt, beginning in 1848 and continuing through the next decade. This "blue book" (a series of parliamentary reports named for the original blue paper wrappers which were issued with many, but not all, the reports) contains official reports on the various expeditions and search plans undertaken. The present paper consists of additional documents laid … [Click Below for Full Description]

Easton, Marbling a history and bibliography p. 156. - "First edition of a very rare and quite wonderful book, notable especially for its four leaves with 32 mounted samples of marbled and decorated papers. It is an important work historically and is mentioned many times by Richard Wolfe in his Marbled papers (indeed, the only other copy we have owned, or for that matter ever seen, went to Mr. Wolfe about ten years ago). He gives a summary of the contents on his page 28, and suggests that Fichtenberg was German or German-trained; further on (p. 46) he refers to this 'extremely fine and valuable 1852 treatise.' Fichtenberg deals with much more than just marbled papers; some of them were chemically made patterns. The varieties of marbled papers are described by Wolfe on his p. 114. One of the most elusive and most charming of the nineteenth marbled paper books."

Report on the sugar cane crop of Louisiana, listing plantations in each parish and their output for the season.

The plantations, listed by parish, are given a vague location ("Bayou Huffpower," "Bayou Cotaille above Alexandria," &c.), noting information such as number of hogsheads produced, distance from New Orleans, and which side of a river they are on if situated near water.

In 1850, Osborn was appointed to command the Pioneer steam-tender in the arctic expedition under Captain Austin in the Resolute. The primary aim was to discover the fate of Sir John Franklin's expedition for the discovery of a North-West Passage to the Pacific. Considered as a surveying expedition, it was eminently successful, while, as to the main object, by discovering traces of Franklin's having wintered at Beechey Island in 1845-1846, it proved that there was no truth in the idea that his ships had been lost in Baffin's Bay.

Internally they are most impressive; they have only a jot of sporadic browning to a few leaves. Overall, this is a set seldom seen on the open market, particularly in their original publisher's bindings, and in the first issue. They come very highly recommended indeed, and they will grace any collection. [Attributes: First Edition]

STOWE, Harriet Beecher
John P. Jewett. 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 edition set of an American classic that helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War!

Fichtenberg, M.:
Paris, Roret, 1852. Mit 4 Tafeln mit 32 montierten Papiermustern. X, 233 S. Etwas späterer HLdr. 14 x 9 cm. Easton, Marbling a history and bibliography p. 156. - "First edition of a very rare and quite wonderful book, notable especially for its four leaves with 32 mounted samples of marbled and decorated papers. It is an important work historically and is mentioned many times by Richard Wolfe in his Marbled papers (indeed, the only other copy we have owned, or for that matter ever seen, went to Mr. Wolfe about ten years ago). He gives a summary of the contents on his page 28, and suggests that Fichtenberg was German or German-trained; further on (p. 46) he refers to this `extremely fine and valuable 1852 treatise.` Fichtenberg deals with much more than just marbled papers; some of them were chemically made patterns. The varieties of marbled papers are described by Wolfe on his p. 114. One of the most elusive and most charming of the nineteenth marbled paper books." (zitiert nach einem Antiquariatskatalog von Charles Wood, Cambridge aus dem Jahr 1999). - - - Stockfleckig, aber insgesamt ein schönes Exemplar! [6 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]
