Layton, Grovenor]
Published by A.R. Orton, New Orleans, Charleston, Baltimore & Philadelphia, 1853. [9]-39,[1]pp. including four woodcut illustrations. Original pictorial yellow wrappers, printed in green and red. Wrappers lightly soiled and edgeworn; closed tear in front wrapper (neatly repaired on verso). Titlepage and following six leaves creased and lightly soiled in upper outer portion. Very good overall. In a cloth chemise and half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. The second issue of this notoriously rare gold rush item, preceded by an issue dated 1852. Attributed by some to A.R. Orton, a Baltimore publisher listed on the front wrapper and titlepage. It has been long debated whether or not this is a work of fact or fiction, and there is indeed a question as to whether or not Grovenor Layton even existed. Richard H. Dillon, in the introduction to the Book Club of California reprint, writes: "The story of Grovenor Layton is a splendid example of an interesting subcategory of American literature. We might best describe the genre as 'California Gold Rush gallows confession'.ARTFUL DEEDS is a humbug, a hoax, a bogus biography. The supposed victim of Judge Lynch did not actually exist. Yet his is a convincing story because Orton, or whoever, did his homework soaking up existing Gold Rush material to feed his imagination." Dillon goes on to commend the volume for its verisimilitude, citing evidence that shows its accuracy in reporting actual places and events. The illustrations are full of action and mayhem, and include the "Cene [sic] in the Gaming Saloon," "Murder of the Chilians," " … [Click Below for Full Description]

Andrews, Stephen Pearl, ed.
New York: Stringer & Townsend, 1853. The present work compiles letters first published in the New York Tribune discussing whether divorce should be legal. The epistolary conversation takes place between Henry James Sr. (1811ÊÐ 1882), the father of psychologist William James and novelist Henry James; Tribune founder and editor Horace Greeley (1811 Ð 1872); and Stephen Pearl Andrews (1812 Ð 1886), an abolitionist and anarchist. Andrews released the present work when Greeley refused to print one of his letters to the Tribune. In the letter, Andrews argues in favor of divorce, permitting sex outside of marriage, and the right of women to freely choose their husbands (pp. 71-81). Greeley based his rejection partially on the grounds that AndrewsÕ letter described injustices against women in excessive detail. Twelvemo. 103 pp., [4] pp. publisherÕs ads.

Thackeray, William Makepeace.
1853. London: Bradbury and Evans, October 1853 - August 1855. 8vo, 24 parts in 23, with etched titles, frontispieces, 44 etched plates, 43 wood-engraved vignettes, and 76 wood-engraved initials, all by Doyle; original yellow printed wrappers, three with early ownership names on uppers, all more or less worn at edges and heels, no.22 with loss to lower wrapper, plates uniformly aged. Text and plates complete and with the majority of the numerous bound ads observed by Van Duzen, only 8 ad leaves and one ad leaf corner definitively lacking. Enclosed in two faded but respectable blue morocco slipcases with titles stamped in gilt. § First edition, Thackeray's novel exploration of the marriage market and the role of women in Victorian society, heightened by Richard Doyle's best series of illustrations: "The attention of the novel's initial readers no doubt centered on Doyle's etchings, which made Colonel Newcome almost as familiar a personage as Phiz's Mr. Pickwick or Cruikshank's Fagin, but his wood-cut vignettes and above all his initial letters, in which his fancy gets full play, also have great charm." --Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England from 1790-1914, 144.

Hawthorne Nathaniel
Gonet, 1853. Hawthorne Nathaniel. La lettre rouge -A - Roman américain. Traduit par Old Nick [Daurand-Forgues]. Gonet, s.d. (1853). Faux-titre, titre, 252 pages. Demi-chagrin (époque). Edition originale française de ce grand roman américain pétri des sentiments de culpabilité nourris par son auteur, dont un ancêtre officia au procès des sorcières de Salem à la toute fin du dix-septième siècle. Forgues, le traducteur, joua un rôle important dans l'introduction en France de la littérature anglo-saxonne (celle-ci fit son apparition en France dans les années 1840) : il fut par exemple le premier à écrire un article sur Edgar Poe en 1846, à donner des extraits de Moby Dick dès 1853. Il consacra aussi une longue étude à William Wilkie Collins en 1855. Cette publication en librairie est l'une des premières d'Hawthorne avec « Trois Contes » (Hachette ; 1853). « La maison aux sept pignons » parut quant à lui en librairie en 1865 mais fut traduit dans la Revue Britannique dès 1852 (quant au « Faune de marbre », il ne connut qu'une traduction en revue). Bel exemplaire malgré quelques feuillets déboîtés, une déchirure sans manque p.1 (photos). Très peu de rousseurs. Très rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

As stated in the introduction, this publication was compiled to study the epidemic in detail, in the hope that such learning might benefit Great Britain in the event of an outbreak of the plague in its own territories. The information in these reports proved to be of value during the intense study of the plague in the 1890s, which led to the identification of the disease's origin in 1894. The compilation comprises three parts: the first contains extracts from reports of the medical officers of the local government board, the second is a memorandum by Mr. Netten Radcliffe and the last contains a few papers considering the medical aspects of quarantine.Binding worn at the edges and the paper spine damaged at the head and foot. With the upper corner of the first few pages slightly soiled, but still in good condition.l Creighton, A history of epidemics in Britain (1965), I, p. 162; Ethnographic plague: configuring disease on the Chinese-Russian frontier, p. 166; Histories of post-mortem contagion: infectious corpses and contested burials, p. 25.

[Bronte, Charlotte] Bell, Currer
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1853. First American edition. Retaining original front wrapper with rear wrapper in facsimile. Front wrapper with a few short tears. Spine worn. Octavo (226 x 142 mm.). A complete copy, including 4 pages of advertisements. Text in double columns. A bit of foxing, otherwise an excellent copy. Although published simultaneously with the first American edition in cloth (with no priority according to Smith) the delicate edition in wrappers is much rarer. "Charlotte Bronte's final masterpiece powerfully portrays a woman struggling to reconcile love, jealousy, and a fierce desire for independence. Having fled a harrowing past in England, Lucy Snowe begins a new life teaching at a boarding school in the great capital of a foreign country. There, as she tries to achieve independence from both outer necessity and inward grief, she finds that her feelings for a worldly doctor and a dictatorial professor threaten her hard-won self possession. Published initially in 1853, Charlotte Bronte's last novel was written in the wake of her grief at the death of her siblings. It has a dramatic force comparable to that of her other masterpiece, Jane Eyre, as well as a striking modernity of psychological insight and a revolutionary understanding of human loneliness" (Vintage).

Victor de Persigny (1808-1872) alors comte puis bientôt duc, était alors ministre de l'intérieur de l'Empereur Napoléon III. Ayant composé seul, de 1849 à 1852, ce gros ouvrage en 4 volumes, Paul Lacroix le porta lui-même à l'Empereur au Palais de Saint-Cloud, qui le reçut en audience particulière et Eugène de Mirecourt nous rapporte ses propos : "Je suis enchanté de vous voir, lui dit-il. Votre livre a beaucoup d'intérêt. Je trouve le troisième volume admirable ; le second est celui des quatre dans lequel il y aurait peut-être quelques changements à faire" (Mirecourt, Le Bibliophile Jacob, 1869,p. 59). Ces quelques mots suffiront certainement à expliquer la rareté de cette édition. Bon état (rouss., reliure lég. frottée) pour cet exemplaire de provenance tout à fait prestigieuse. Français

Washington, D. C.: Robert Armstrong, 1853. 8vo. 198 pp. 78 lithographed plates after R.H. Kern by Ackerman, N.Y., some tinted, one folding and large folding map. Modern red half leather. Some very pale cockling to some plates at end, generally clean and bright. FIRST EDITION. Sitgreaves and his party traversed the country from northern New Mexico to San Diego in the summer and fall of 1851, crossing northern Arizona and descending the Colorado to Yuma before crossing the desert. This report is notable for its many lithographed plates of scenes along the route, as well as flora and fauna (and ornithology, perhaps the reason for its appeal to Woodhouse and Cassin). The natural history specimens are described by John Torrey. Wheat calls the map "a monumental achievement... generally correct and exceedingly well done."

DICKENS, Charles (1812-1870), [BROWNE, H.K., illustrator]
London: Bradbury and Evans, 1853. [Crime Fiction] FIRST EDITION, First Issue. Octavo, pp.xvi; 624 [2]. Has all three typographical errors present in the first issue: p.19, line 6: "elgble"; p. 209, line 23: "chair" instead of "hair"; and p. 275, line 22: "counsinship" instead of "cousinship." With 40 engraved illustrations by H.K. Browne, including a frontispiece and vignette title page. Including clear early impressions of the 'dark' plates. Bound without half-title in contemporary tan half calf with gilt titles to brown label on the spine, along with further decoration in gilt and blind. Marbled paper over boards, brown endpapers, and all edges marbled. Black ink ownership to first blank. Heavy browning to plate margins, but generally better than usual. Edges faded. Quite heavy rubbing to boards, with a few small cracks to spine and bumped corners. Very good. Although many of Dickens most famous works are crawling with crime, it is just this title that can be firmly placed in the murder mystery category. 'Bleak House' is essentially a classic whodunit, professionally solved, which became only the second entry (after Poe's 'Tales') in the Haycraft-Queen cornerstone list of crime fiction. Dickens returned to crime fiction for his highly-rated final story, the 'Mystery of Edwin Drood' but this was unfinished and the case unsolved. Within 'Bleak House' the author experiments with dual narrators and the story ranges from the dark and filthy Victorian slums to the landed aristocracy; Inspector Bucket is one of the earliest detectives to appear in fiction and was probably based … [Click Below for Full Description]

WEBBER, Charles Wilkins.
Philadelphia: Lippincott, Grambo & Co., 1853. Philadelphia: Lippincott, Grambo & Co.,, 1853. The first female vampire protagonist Octavo in sixes. Original purple pebble-grain cloth, titles to spine in gilt, publisher's vignette within decorative frame to covers in blind, pale brown endpapers. Ten-page publisher's catalogue at end. Rear free endpaper neatly excised. Spine gently cocked, cloth faded to pale brown at spine and board edges, touch of wear to spine ends and tips, foxing to contents, a couple of creases to corners folded by prior owner; a very good copy. First edition, with a contemporary manuscript glossary decoding the real identities of the principal characters in pencil to the first blank, the characters likewise identified in pencil in the margins when they first appear in the text, a couple unidentified and simply left with question marks. The characters are deliberately ill-disguised; most notably the predatory protagonist Etherial Softdown, an "oversexed evil vampire", is based on the social reformer, hydrotherapy advocate, and feminist Mary Gove Nichols (1810-1884) (Cohen, p. 15). This work is the first vampire novel by an American, and the anywhere to introduce a female vampire protagonist (Sheridan Le Fanu's Carmilla, often cited as the first, was not published until 1872). Gove is depicted in the novel as an immoral creature who "sank her claws and her mouth into men she had a yen for, and coughed up blood to gain sympathy when it suited her" (ibid., p. 15). Webber (1819-1856) was a Kentucky author predominantly known for his western novels. He live … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHESTERTON, George Laval.
London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1853. 2 volumes, octavo (190 x 111 mm). Contemporary polished calf, richly gilt spines, red and green twin labels, sides with border of paired gilt fillets with corner rosettes, gilt foliate edge roll, milled blind turn-ins, Nonpareil pattern marbled edges and endpapers. Neat Eton gift inscription to preliminary blank in vol. I (dated midsummer 1860). Spines just lightly sunned, touch of foxing to endpapers. A very smart set. First edition of this well-written memoir of a fascinating career, this a particularly attractive copy. Chesterton served in the field train department of the Royal Artillery in the Peninsula and in the war of 1812 (burning of Washington, Baltimore, Battle of New Orleans) and subsequently, with the army of Columbia under Bolivar, as judge advocate of the British Legion in Venezuela. In later life he was governor of the house of correction at Cold Bath Fields, and a noted prison reformer, being acquainted with Dickens and Elizabeth Fry. He gives some an account of this period of his life at the end of volume II. G. L. Chesterton was related to G. K., and is described in Michael Coren's biography of the writer as "a professional fighting man" (Gilbert: The Man Who Was G. K. Chesterton, 1990, p. 10). Howes C354; Sabin 12551; not in Sandler.
