Charlotte Brontë
Charlotte Bronte / Currer bell - Villette - 1853 UK first edition published by Smith, Elder & Co First edition, in 3 volumes. Bound in robust green cloth with simple gilt titles to the spine, the binding probably dates from the late 19th or early 20th century. I'd guess somebody put together a set of odd volumes that they found and weren't terribly concerned to make them completely uniform, so one volume is slightly larger than the others, but even the other two differ enough in condition to suggest that they haven't always lived adjacent to one another. The bindings are firm. boards are lightly marked and rubbed with bumping to the corners and spine ends. All volumes have had a small label, possibly that of a bookseller, removed from their front pastedowns. Vol 1 is quite foxed, grubby and toned with creasing to some pages, minor damage to page edges and a neatly written ownership inscription to the title page. Volume 2 is lightly marked with creasing to some pages. Vol 3 is lightly foxed with staining to some pages. All 3 volumes lack the half-titles and there are no ads. Despite the faults I actually rather like them, you might also. [Attributes: First Edition]

(CARTOGRAFIA - GEOGRAFIA)
1853. Cartellina di cm. 26,5 con legacci e scritta in oro al centro "Scoperte Artiche Atlante". All'interno due grandi carte geografiche: Carta delle Terre Polari Artiche dalla Baia di Baffin all'Isola di Baring corretta sopra documenti ufficiali al 1853 dal Conte Francesco Miniscalchi Erizzo (cm. 60x90), leggermente colorata; Carta delle Terre Polari Artiche tratta da quella dell'Ammiraglio Inglese e corretta al 1853 dal Conte Francesco Miniscalchi Erizzo (cm. 60x90), leggermente colorata. Il Conte F. Miniscalchi compiuti i primi studi nel collegio di Parma e in quello di Desenzano del Garda, li completò nel liceo di Verona. La passione per i viaggi gli fu trasmessa dai genitori, con i quali percorse gran parte d'Italia già nel 1830. Qualche anno più tardi (1834), autonomamente, visitò la Svizzera, la Germania, la Danimarca, e poi (1837) la Francia e l'Inghilterra, traendo stimoli per una visione più aperta e moderna della propria classe sociale: fu infatti esponente di spicco di quella aristocrazia non parassitaria, ma direttamente impegnata nell'amministrazione e nell'ammodernamento delle proprie tenute agricole, secondo la migliore tradizione illuministica. Appassionato di studi geografici e di cartografia, il M. dette un impulso notevole alle conoscenze geografiche in Italia con un volume incentrato su Le scoperte artiche (Venezia 1855). Lo studio è ancora oggi utile sia per l'ingente materiale documentario raccolto sia «per alcune osservazioni etnologiche sui lapponi e i loro contatti con il mondo ugro-finnico, e più in generale, uralo-altaico».

Our copy, A MANUAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY, is the third, revised and enlarged edition of his 1841 treatise. In 1853, he was one of the founders of the Photographic Society of London. His experiments with organic and inorganic light-sensitive substances were most influential in the development of photo-chemistry. This history and manual includes detailed procedures and formulae and is comprehensive to its date. Issued in the series ENCYCLOPAEDIA METROPOLITANA, with a separate title page.

CARTOGRAFIA - GEOGRAFIA)
1853. Cartellina di cm. 26,5 con legacci e scritta in oro al centro ?Scoperte Artiche Atlante? All?interno due grandi carte geografiche: Carta delle Terre Polari Artiche dalla Baia di Baffin all?Isola di Baring corretta sopra documenti ufficiali al 1853 dal Conte Francesco Miniscalchi Erizzo (cm. 60x90), leggermente colorata; Carta delle Terre Polari Artiche tratta da quella dell?Ammiraglio Inglese e corretta al 1853 dal Conte Francesco Miniscalchi Erizzo (cm. 60x90), leggermente colorata. Il Conte F. Miniscalchi compiuti i primi studi nel collegio di Parma e in quello di Desenzano del Garda, li completò nel liceo di Verona. La passione per i viaggi gli fu trasmessa dai genitori, con i quali percorse gran parte d?Italia già nel 1830. Qualche anno più tardi (1834), autonomamente, visitò la Svizzera, la Germania, la Danimarca, e poi (1837) la Francia e l?Inghilterra, traendo stimoli per una visione più aperta e moderna della propria classe sociale: fu infatti esponente di spicco di quella aristocrazia non parassitaria, ma direttamente impegnata nell?amministrazione e nell?ammodernamento delle proprie tenute agricole, secondo la migliore tradizione illuministica. Appassionato di studi geografici e di cartografia, il M. dette un impulso notevole alle conoscenze geografiche in Italia con un volume incentrato su Le scoperte artiche (Venezia 1855). Lo studio è ancora oggi utile sia per l?ingente materiale documentario raccolto sia «per alcune osservazioni etnologiche sui lapponi e i loro contatti con il mondo ugro-finnico, e più in generale, uralo-altaico».

Connecticut - Whig Party
1853. Small quarto, leather-backed marbled boards, approx. 150 pp of handwritten essays, orations, poems, etc., by a Middletown CT politician and author, with emphasis on moral and political essays, and showing much admiration for Daniel Webster, the premier Whig orator of his day, and for anti-slavery positions, etc. Author unknown but we have a few guesses: Clark Bissell, Thomas B. Butler, and Lafayette S. Foster are our three top contenders: one of his speeches herein is entitled "Speech on the MIssouri Compromise against my opponent Mr. Fellows [?]" if that supplies a clue -- and many of the writings offer admiration for Daniel Webster. Some of the writings show revisions and edits, but much flows forth from the author's pen unrevised, and there is a certain pomposity and windbaggedness that strikes us at the work of an orator and politician. A laid-in speech of 20 pp. is on the happiness and welfare of the common interests of men. The first oration in the book itself is "Reason the Foundation of Faith." Another short speech is delivered to the Young Men's Debating Club and Lyceum of the Western Academy. Still another is addressed to a masonic lodge called The Evening Star and begins, "Fellow Clubites..." There is at least one other manuscript of a talk given to this lodge. There is an "Oration delivered on the Fourth Day of July at Colebrook River, 1853" which rails against slavery: "Oh!! Slavery!! Slavery!!! the most hideous snake which Southern regions breed, once with fifteen unequal feet came crawling North!

Bell, Currer (Bronte, Charlotte)
London Smith, Elder & Co 1853. First edition, in 3 volumes. Bound in robust green cloth with simple gilt titles to the spine, the binding probably dates from the late 19th or early 20th century. I'd guess somebody put together a set of odd volumes that they found and weren't terribly concerned to make them completely uniform, so one volume is slightly larger than the others, but even the other two differ enough in condition to suggest that they haven't always lived adjacent to one another. The bindings are firm. boards are lightly marked and rubbed with bumping to the corners and spine ends. All volumes have had a small label, possibly that of a bookseller, removed from their front pastedowns. Vol 1 is quite foxed, grubby and toned with creasing to some pages, minor damage to page edges and a neatly written ownership inscription to the title page. Volume 2 is lightly marked with creasing to some pages. Vol 3 is lightly foxed with staining to some pages. All 3 volumes lack the half-titles and there are no ads. Despite the faults I actually rather like them, you might also. [Attributes: First Edition]

Howe's, E. W.
Atchison, Kansas: E. W. Howe Edgar Watson Howe (1853 - 1937) was an American novelist and newspaper and magazine editor in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He fought for the Union in the Civil War and established a newspaper Bethany, Missouri to advocate his cause. Following successful, but short lived, endeavors operating newspapers in Colorado and Nebraska, Howe established "The Globe" in Atchison, Kansas in 1877 (Now the "Atchison Daily Globe"). He is perhaps best known, however, for "E. W. Howe's Monthly" (1911 - 1913), a periodical in which he was the sole writer (though freely and frequently quoting the writings of others), and one in which he would pontificate his political view and thoughts on the news of the day. An excellent source of additional information can be found in "A Critical Review of E. W. Howe's Monthly" a master's thesis by Della Josephine Heckert of Kansas State College, Pittsburg, Kansas (1961). Extant copies of the Monthly are scarce, and only a handful are found in libraries using WorldCat. Eight issues, each being 64 pages saddle stapled into paper wrap covers. Some of the covers show chips and small paper loss. There is some age toning to a few, as well as penciled notes and scribbles. All text on covers remains intact, and all eight issues are tight.
