Bachmann, John
New York, 1853. Color lithograph, approximately 23 x 31 inches. Matted and framed. Very good. Large bird's-eye view of the New York Crystal Palace from the north with downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn in the background. Printed in color by Bachmann. Reps appraised Bachmann in the following glowing terms: "No finer artist of city views worked in America than John Bachmann." The New York Crystal Palace imitated the more famous Crystal Palace built in Hyde Park in London as an exhibition hall, matching its revolutionary iron and glass construction and serving a similar purpose as an exhibition hall. Opened in 1853, the year this view was made, it burned down in 1858. It sat on the present site of Bryant Park, immediately to the west of the New York Public Library, and over some of the NYPL stacks. Immediately to the east was the Egyptian Revival style reservoir at the terminal point of the Croton Aqueduct. This was demolished in the early 20th century to make way for the present NYPL building.

Little, W.J.
Longman, London, 1853, first edition. First edition of this important work. Re-bound in a plain green cloth binding, with marbled endpapers and gilt titles to the spine. A piece of the original yellow end paper remains, with the following inscription: ' Samuel Ingall Eq. With the best regards of the author'. Ingall's bookplate also loosely inserted. Stamp and name to the half title. The re-binding of this book has left a slight wrinkle to the text block. x (ii), 412, (2)pp. Little (1810-94) was a member of the Royal College of Surgeons, and founded the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital of London. As a youth he was an apothecary's apprentice, surrendering his indentures at the age of 18 and entering medical school at the London Hospital. He was admitted to the Royal College of Surgeons in 1832. Little himself was a sufferer of a deformity in his left leg due to polio. This necessitated the use of a brace and obviously spurred his interest in finding a cure for such ailments. Little was one of the first to bridge the gap between neurology and orthopaedics, and his important work continues to impact both of these fields, including the fact of continually-increasing cooperation between orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons in today's management of spastic cerebral palsy and similar neuromuscular disabilities. This landmark work, Little first described pseudo-hypertrophic muscular dystrophy, preceding Guillaume Duchenne's paper on the same condition by eight years. (Garrison and Morton 4329)

Dickens, Charles
Bradbury Evans, London, 1853. First edition of this Dickens' classic. Octavo, bound in three quarters morocco over marbled boards with gilt titles and tooling to the spine, marbled endpapers, all edges marbled, engraved title page and 39 engraved plates by H.K. Browne including frontispiece. In near fine condition. A handsome 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).

1853-1869, Paris. A bound collection of 137 hand-colored plates. Royal 8vo. 26.5 by 19.5 cm. Plates almost always feature two comely women in the latest Parisian fashion, with an evocative background, both interior and exterior. The backgrounds have coloring, but generally less color than the women and especially their gowns, which were intended as the primary focal point of the illustrations. While this is not a complete compendium of the illustrations from the magazine during the period, the plates are generally arranged in consecutive order (until the end, when they revert to earlier dates), allowing us to observe the gradual changes in fashion, with the dresses slowly becoming less full and bell-shaped. Condition: age toning around edges. A few minor, inconspicuous edge chips. Minor occasional spotting. Modern quarter morocco binding has gilt decoration on spine and is in fine condition. Quarter Morocco. Marbled paper over boards. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

DICKENS, Charles.
DICKENS, Charles. Bleak House. London: Bradbury and Evans, 1853.8vo., full polished calf ruled in gilt, rich gilt spine with five raised bands and contrasting brown and green leather labels lettered in gilt, gilt turn ins, marbled endpapers; upper edge gilt; pp. xvi, 624, bound without advertisments; additional etched title and 39 etched plates, including all ten 'dark plates' by H.K. Browne ("Phiz"); a very good copy, some darkening to repaired upper hinge; scattered light foxing to plates and offsetting to frontis much less pronounced than usual.First edition, bound from the original parts. With all 40 issue points as outlined in Smith (see Smith, 1981) indicating first issue. Front wrapper from the May issue, and rear wrapper from final issue, bound in.Dickens's ninth novel was notably the first to feature a female narrator, the heroine Esther Summerson, who describes a gothic London, choking in smog and darkness: "As much mud in the streets as if the waters had but newly retired from the face of the earth, and it would not be wonderful to meet a Megalosaurus, forty feet long or so, waddling like an elephantine lizard up Holborn Hill...". Dickens provides his customary dissection of the layers of Victorian society, the injustices of the British legal system, and in particular, the Court of Chancery. The mystery and gloom of the novel is expertly depicted by Browne's 'dark plates', a technique specially developed for this book, and produced using a ruling-machine, which meticulously cut a close-spaced criss-cross pattern of lines into the plate, thus creating an overall … [Click Below for Full Description]

Drown, Simeon DeWitt [1791 - 1857] - Artist
[Peoria, Illinois]: [1853]. 1st printing (presumed). Single sheet, flimsy light blue-grey paper, printed recto only. In the upper left, under a presumed City seal, is a 40-line history of Peoria, which, we presume, was drafted by Drown. The lettter portion of the sheet has 12 lines of mss [dated March 20th 1853, beginning "Dear Brother"] under the engravings [letter obviously continued on another sheet, not present]. Illustrated with two wood engravings of Peoria by Drown, signed in facsimile. 11" x 9-3/8". Now housed in an archival mylar sleeve. Fold-lines. Some wear to edges, including a couple short, closed tears to top edge. Overall, Very Good. Item #47366 Rare Illinois letter sheet, apparently unrecorded, with two images by S. D. W. Drown, Peoria resident & town historian, perhaps best known today for his 1844 City Directory. The letter sheet's first view shows the nascent town along the Illinois river, from the perspective of some indians across the river; the second view shows the city in its more bustling, developed state, presumably from the same river bank location, albeit 2 decades later. While the first view can be found in an 1850 directory, a source for the second has not been found. An uncommon survivor visually documenting early-to-mid 19th C. Peoria. [Attributes: First Edition]

With 18 colour plates, 2 tinted lithographs, 6 uncoloured plates, woodcuts in the text and 3 folding coloured maps. Ownership inscription of Major C. Stjerngranat neatly in pencil to foot of front covers, partially erased to first volume. Faint marks and discolouration to wrappers, nicks and chips to edges and spines; a remarkably bright copy. First edition, in wrappers, of Skogman's official account of the voyage of the Eugenie, the first Swedish circumnavigation. Skogman acted as astronomer on this voyage, which lasted from 1851 until 1853. "Skogman's little known narrative tells of the Royal Swedish voyageÂ… [The] work is much sought after because of its fine colour plates" (Hill). This work has "a particularly good account of the expedition's stop in Honolulu" and bears three plates of Hawaiian views (Forbes). The Eugenie visited Hawaii twice in 1852, during which a commercial treaty was completed between the United Kingdoms of Norway and Sweden and Hawaii. The ship also made key stops at the Galapagos Islands, California, Tahiti, Australia, China, and South Africa. This edition is notably scarce in the original wrappers, and is normally found bound as two volumes in one; of the 62 copies traced at auction just one other copy has appeared in wrappers, with only further two retaining the wrappers whe … [Click Below for Full Description]

BERLIOZ, Hector 1803-1869
4 pp. of a bifolium (ca. 135 x 207 mm). Dated Sunday, October 16, [1853] Brunswick, Deutsches Hause. In black ink on ivory paper. In French (with translation). Berlioz writes to Joachim about rehearsals for a performance of Faust in Hanover, stating that he intends to perform the work in its entirety there and noting his detailed requirements for the orchestra and choir. He goes on to mention concerts planned in Brunswick for October 22 and 25. After emphasizing that the most important thing is that the singers know their parts by the time he arrives, Joachim specifies the additional instruments he will need as well as requesting an "army" for the children's choir. "Mr. De Perglasse, in his last letter, having left me free to do what I would like for the composition of the program, I decided to give the whole Faust tour, one of the principal motives being to allow you to understand the entire score. I was also told here that the Hanover Orchestra has improved a great deal more than I have heard. The Hanover concert is now set for November 8." Slightly worn and browned; creased at folds; very minor ink stains to margins. A "légende dramatique" in four parts to a libretto by the composer and Almire Gandonnière after Gérard de Nerva's French translation of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Faust, the Damnation of Faust was given its first concert performance in Paris at the Opéra-Comique (Salle Favart) on December 6, 1846. Berlioz was touring Europe in 1853, as he had been doing for years following a series of career setbacks in the 1840s. A group of musicians in Weimar were advoca … [Click Below for Full Description]
