John C. Templer (ed.)
London: Richard Bentley, 1853. Sir James Brooke was the first of the three "White Rajahs" who ruled the Sarawak region of Borneo between 1841 & 1946. In addition to biographical elements, these letters provide a fascinating perspective and background narrative into the history, society, piracy and development of this area of Southeast Asia and James Brookes part in shaping it. Interestingly these volumes have the provenance of being presented by the editor to Edward Eyre, believed from the context to be Edward John Eyre, an English explorer of the Australian continent and one time Lieutenant-Governor of New Munster Province in New Zealand and Colonial Governor in Jamaica.

Ruskin, John
London: Smith, Elder and Company, 1853. First edition. First edition. Three volumes. Quartos. In the original publisher's stunning brown heavily embossed fine grain cloth with bold gilt-blocked cover design revealing in negative space geometric shapes and superb stylized peacocks (on both covers), gilt decorated spine with lettering, original red brown endpapers. A fine set of the rare first edition, comprising the 1851 first issue volume, and the two first issue volumes, published in 1853, thus a complete set of three in the publisher's matched bindings. Unlike a few other sets found in the marketplace, these with concurrent dates on the advertisements in back for all three volumes as follows: Volume One (1851), "A Catalogue of Books," dated February, 1851, 16pp; Volume Two (1853), "A Catalogue of New and Standard Books," dated June, 1853, 16pp; and Volume Three (1853) "A Catalogue of New and Standard Books," dated September, 1853. Ruskin's classic treatise on Venetian Art and Architecture, describing over eighty churches in the Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance periods. A monumental achievement, with 53 engraved, lithograph, and mezzotint tissue-guarded plates (seven hand-colored) and wood engraved illustrations in the text, all after drawings by Ruskin. A fine copy with only slightest wear to otherwise stunning cloth covers, rear free fly lacking in vol 2, vol 1 and 2 near fine internally, vol 3 with occasional foxing to some early pages, but unobtrusive.

Michaux, F[rancois] Andrew, and Nuttall, Thomas
Robert P. Smith, Philadelphia, 1853. Collectible set of this desirable, most important, early American work in the botanical field focused on trees. The 1853 edition is very uncommon versus later.

Andrew Michaux". 8 vo., 10.5" x 6.25", All volumes between pp. 123 - 148. Michaux is Illustrated by 156 hand coloured copperplate engravings by Redoute, Bessa.

Nuttall built upon this work traveling even further west, across the Rockies and on to Hawaii in the 1820s - 30s and recorded previously undocumented species. "For thousands of miles my chief converse has been in the wilderness with the spontaneous productions of Nature; and the study of these objects and their contemplation has been to me a source of constant delight."

von Seyfried, Ignatz Ritter (1776 - 1841) / Pierson, Henry Hugh (1815 - 1873) [Editor]
Schuberth & Company, Leipzig, Germany, 1853. This book is the Second Edition of "Ludwig van Beethoven Studien im Generalbass, Contrapunkt und der Compositionslehre aus dessen handschriftlichem Nachlass" by Ignaz Ritter von Seyfried (1776 - 1841), an Austrian musician, conductor and composer. It's a magnificent find, being one of the earliest serious studies of the music of Ludwig van Beethoven, written by a musician contemporary with Beethoven. Von Seyfried was a pupil of both Mozart and Johann Albrechtsberger, and was himself teacher to numerous musicians, including Franz von Suppe, Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst, and Joseph Fischhof. In 1805 it was von Seyfried who had the honor of conducting the premiere of Beethoven's opera, "Fidelio". The first appearance of this important book, prepared, in part, from personal manuscripts from Beethoven's estate, was in 1832. The edition here presented is the Second Edition, as edited and revised by Henry Hugh Pierson (1815 - 1873). Pierson was an English composer who took up residence in Germany. He was a composer of operas and songs. Much of his work seems not to have survived, although various important repositories have a few manuscripts, including the Library of Congress, the Royal College of Music in London, and the Music Library of the Carl von Ossietzky Music Department in Hamburg. (Thanks to Wikipedia for some of the above information) ********************************* As well as the historical interest that the book holds for the world, and especially for musicologists, this specific copy has a unique musical provenance, having been … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Jersey], Imprimerie universelle, 18531 plaquette (70 x 110 mm) de 15 pp., en une feuille pliée. Rarissime tiré à part, le plus rare des quatre imprimés d'après des pièces extraites de l'édition non expurgée des Châtiments. « Les Châtiments », recueil vengeur a paru pour la première fois en 1853. Victor Hugo, exilé après le Coup d'État du 2 décembre 1851, y donne libre cours à la haine qu'il voue à Napoléon III, devenu pour lui le symbole de la tyrannie. « Le premier tirage a été presque exclusivement expédié à l'étranger et le second, plus correct, fut réservé à la France ; c'est Hetzel qui, le 21 novembre, en envoya à Paris le premier exemplaire, c'est-à-dire le lendemain de la mise en vente, à Bruxelles, d'une édition tronquée. Mais bien vite la frontière fut étroitement surveillée pour empêcher l'introduction en France des Châtiments. Ce fut réussi, car dès la fin de décembre son imprimeur belge Samuel signalait à Hugo que la vente était loin de répondre à ses espérances ; c'est à peine, assure-t-il, s'il parvenait chaque semaine à faire parvenir à Paris une centaine d'exemplaires des Châtiments [...] Il eut alors l'idée d'imprimer séparément, dans le format in-32, quelques pièces du recueil, de manière à faire une sorte de propagande pour l'ouvrage complet ; ces minces brochures étaient ensuite expédiées par la poste sous enveloppe fermée, et échappaient ainsi à la vigilance de la police. Le 13 décembre, Samuel, lui écrit : "J'ai dû faire faire en toute hâte deux extraits, l'un que vous avez déjà [Nox], l'autre que je vous envoie ici, L'Expiation [...] Maintenant, je … [Click Below for Full Description]

Little, W.J.
Longman, London, 1853. 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.

Van Driesten (fusain et sanguine), signé et dédicacé à Mme de Ménil .Joseph-Emmanuel Van Driesten (1853-1923) In 1886, he won a silver medal in Vienna for a series of paintings of thirty-two genealogical trees outlining the ancestry of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria. In 1886, Van Driesten relocated to Paris, taking up residence at 19 Rue du Poncelet. There, he offered instructional courses for ladies in both illumination (heraldic illustration, calligraphy, and the creation of decorative monograms and initials) and miniature portraiture. (It would seem that miniature portraiture was of secondary interest to him, likely something he pursued to satisfy the growing demand for high quality color portraits in Paris in the last years of the nineteenth century.) He also published two monthly magazines of art instruction: L'Enlumineu (The Illuminator), published from 1889 to 1892, and Le Coloriste Enlumineur (The Colorist Illuminator), published from 1893 to 1898. He is said to have participated regularly exhibitions of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts (National Society of Fine Arts), where he exhibited both miniature portraits and heraldic works, received a total of 18 gold and silver medals. His period of flourish as a miniature portrait painter were from 1886-1998. He was active as a heraldist and heraldic illuminator for a much longer period, from 1870 until his death in 1923.

Constitution
Philadelphia, 1853. This lovely volume contains essential documents of American history including the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of independence, the Inaugural Addresses of the Presidents, and much more. Presentation copy inscribed by the editor, William Hickey: “Presented to Edward Stabler Esq. With the kind regards and best respects of the author and compiler, and of his friend, W. Hickey Senate Office March 9, 1854.” In the 1840s William Hickey, a member of the Senate’s clerical staff, found that printed copies of the Constitution contained numerous inaccuracies. He prepared “a copy of the Constitution from which he had taken pains to banish every error. He placed this Constitution at the front of a 225-page manual of the national government that he had produced, which in the course of several editions he expanded to 521 pages. “The book contained a certificate by Secretary of State James Buchanan, declaring that Hickey’s printed Constitution “has been critically compared with the originals in this Department & found to be correct, in text, letter, & punctuation. It may, therefore, be relied upon as a standard edition.” (Buchanan’s original was the engrossed, signed original of 1787, in the custody of the Department of the State.) “Hickey published several editions of his manual, with the Constitution at the front, during the 1850s. After his death, the administrator of his estate published new editions in 1878 and 1879, with a certification by another secretary of state (Hamilton Fish) attesting to the accuracy of a Constitution that now included … [Click Below for Full Description]

Henry Noel Humphreys
London: 1853. Spine is broken, see pictures. A project for a keen bookbinder! A few pages are stained, none are marked with either ink or pencil, no corners have been turned down. Front and back have cracks in what I assume are carved decorations. "The Origin and Progress of the ART OF WRITING A Connected Narrative" by Henry Noel Humphreys, 1853. This book has been in the family since who knows when, I assume it was a great-grandparent's but have no way to know. I have looked after it for several decades but feel it is now time for it to pass to somebody else, preferably one able and interested enough to re-bind it. The broken spine is pretty much the only problem with it - its been like that as long as I can remember, I didn't break it! - as the actual quality and clarity of the printed pages is amazing. The coloured pages especially are astonishing, the colour seems to me to be as good as new. The book will be extremely well packed. If you are outside UK kindly get in touch re postage. In fact, in UK get in touch re postage too, please. If its possible to deliver or pick up that would be helpful. I will be covering the postage costs and will do everything to make sure it is posted securely.

PURGOTTI, Sebastiano.
Perugia, Tipografia di Vincenzo Bartelli 1853. Three volumes, 8vo, pp. 440; 504; 680; in contemporary calf-backed marbled boards, spine ruled and lettered in gilt. Third edition, considerably expanded, of this comprehensive survey of applied chemistry by the noted Italian chemist, mathematician, and philosopher Sebastiano Purgotti (1799-1879), first published in two volumes between 1839 and 1841. Dividing his work into sections on metalloids, metals, inorganic and organic chemistry, Purgotti describes the properties of all the known elements, the ways in which they react with others and behave, and the various uses of both the elements and their compounds, especially in medicine and agriculture, describing the preparation of medicines and fertilisers. Purgotti was the author of numerous works on atomic theory, arithmetic, organic chemistry, pharmaceuticals, and physiology, and became rector of the University of Perugia in 1854. All editions of the present work are rare. This edition not recorded by OCLC, which records only one copy of the first edition, at the British Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
