        Bleak House

      London: Bradbury and Evans, 1853.. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE. Octavo, pp.x; 624. Illustrated with 39 plates by Browne. Bound in contemporary full tan calf, boards double gilt ruled, with raised bands and red and green title labels to spine; all edges marbled, marbled endpapers, board edges decorated in gilt. Internally clean, with some foxing primarily to plate pages; ownership stamp, "M Plotnicki / Gateshead" in purple ink to title page. Binding shows well, rubbed to hinges and corners, with some marks to boards. Front hinge starting but still sound. Although many of Dickens most famous works are crawling with crime, it is solely this title that can be placed squarely 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 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 on C.K. Field of the recently formed Scotland Yard. An essential mystery novel.

Der sechste Programmpunkt ist \"Der kleine Tommy, genannt der kleine Teufel, auf seinen zwei Ponnys\". - Tom Belling (1843-1900), Sohn des Fred(eric) Belling, wird das Verdienst zugeschrieben, den klassischen Clown in den „Dummen August\" umgewandelt zu haben; der von Belling kreierte Name \"August\" für den modern Clown bürgerte sich als Synonym für Clowns schnell ein. Damit sicherte sich Belling in der Zirkusgeschichte einen prominenten Platz. - Bemerkenswert die Mitwirkung von Gunerius Halvorsen, den späteren Direktor des ca. 1860 gegründeten ersten norwegischen Circus.

        The Isthmus of Darien in 1852. Journal of the Expedition of Inquiry for the Junction of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans

      London: Saunders and Stanford, 1853. First edition.. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo. vi,238pp. Publisher's green textured cloth blocked in b ind on the boards and spine, and with titles in gilt on the spine and upper board. With the four folding, handcolored maps present. The cloth has some minor spotting, else the binding is in very good condition. Two maps have been reinforced t the point where they join the textblock to mend closed tears from stress (no loss), occasional light spotting, else this is a very good copy. With the bookplate of W. T. R. Powell on the front pastedown, below the bookseller sticker of J. Field, London. Although a colony, Caledonia, was originally founded in the late 17th century by the Scots in what is now the Isthmus of Panama to build a canal between the Atlantic and Pacific, it and subsequent attempts ended in failure. In 1852, however, the government of Colombia (which controlled Panama) granted permission for the building of a canal from San Miguel, on the Pacific, to the Bay of Caledonia (the original Scottish settlement) or thereabouts on the Atlantic. Even though this canal was not built, the notes in this journal and its maps were of great importance for the present canal, started in 1881 and opened in 1914.

        De la paralysie générale progressive. Thèse de concours pour l'agrégation en médecine

      1853 - 86 pages Paris, Labé - Librairie de la Faculté de médecine, 1853, in-8, 86 pages, maroquin noir moderne, dos lisse, titre doré en long, gardes de papier noir [Louise B.], Édition originale de la thèse d'agrégation du médecin Charles Lasègue (1816-1883), qui lui valut, avec l'appui de Trousseau, le grade de professeur. Le sujet de la "paralysie générale" lui avait été imposé par tirage au sort : ses travaux le menèrent à exposer de manière concise et saisissante, les idées qui régnaient alors, considérant cette affection comme une espèce morbide unique. Par la suite, il se mettra en butte contre ces opinions anciennes en soutenant, à l'inverse, l'hypothèse de plusieurs espèces de paralysie générale, comprises dans un vaste genre de maladies cérébrales chroniques.

Husner, 1474-75. First edition of the De Casibus Virorum Illustrium, which deals with the vanity of human affairs from Adam to Boccaccio's own time. Written about 1355 to 1360, this is a work of 56 biographies of famous people, and the inevitable catastrophes awaiting those who are too fortunate. It exerted a great influence on other authors including Chaucer, John Lydgate, Shakespeare, and Christopher Marlowe; a genre of stories known as de casibus tragedies was created. Some of the famous people whose biographies are provided include Jocasta, Queen of Thebes; Agamemnon, King of Mycenae; Samson; Dido, Queen of Carthage; Hannibal; Cleopatra; Mithridates, King of Pontus; Herod, King of the Jews; Nero; King Arthur; and Petrarch. This book comes from Husner's first press and is a fine example of his text types with fantastic majuscules. A fine and rather large copy from the library of Ambroise Firmin Didot with his bookplate (sale, Part V, Paris, 11-16 June 1883, lot 528-"Magnifique exemplaire, à toutes marges et non lavé").

        THE MINER'S PROGRESS; OR, SCENES IN THE LIFE OF A CALIFORNIA MINER. BEING A SERIES OF HUMOROUS ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE "UPS AND DOWNS" OF A GOLD DIGGER IN PURSUIT OF HIS "PILE."

      Sacramento: Published at the Daily Union Office, 1853. 13pp. (eleven of them with crudely handcolored illustrations) followed by [2]pp. of advertisements. Original pictorial salmon-colored wrappers. Wrappers stained and quite worn, with several tears at edges. Bookplate on inner front wrapper, early ownership signature at head of front wrapper. Text leaves with some tears at edges, but none affecting text or illustrations. A worn but overall good copy. In a cloth chemise and slipcase. A classic of Gold Rush satire, being among the earliest published works of humorist Alonzo Delano, and iconic Gold Rush artist Charles Nahl. The project was initiated by the SACRAMENTO UNION, which hired Delano and Nahl to produce the work, which also appeared in the July 4, 1853 edition of the paper. Delano, who often wrote under the name "Old Block," emphasizes the loneliness, exhaustion, and dashed hopes of the miner, and Nahl's sketches perfectly reinforce the tone of the work. The story ends well, however, with the miner striking gold and returning home to his loving family in Maine. Charles Nahl and his brother, Arthur, came to the United States from Germany in 1849, and arrived in California the following year. Charles, the "Cruikshank of California," was the superior artist, and his illustrations of Gold Rush scenes are highly lauded. Hamilton says that Nahl's illustrations "depicting the life of the miner in the days of the gold rush are extraordinarily good...he was an excellent interpreter of the humor and pathos of early California life." The ads tout the several publications of the SACRAMENTO UNION. Kurutz notes blue-green pictorial wrappers, while ours are salmon-colored. A "third edition" also appeared in 1853, which presumes that there was also a second edition, though Kurutz never located one. KURUTZ 179a. COWAN, p.163. GREENWOOD 382. ROCQ 6043. STREETER SALE 2736.

The Kelly family had one of the longest connections in the history of the binding trade in London, having been founded in 1770 by John Kellie, as the name was then spelled. The binding firm was carried on by successive members of the family into the 1930s. William Henry Kelly significantly developed the company in the first half of the nineteenth century, followed by William Henry, Jr., Henry, and Hubert Kelly, who took control in 1892, taking the firm into the twentieth century.

        Bleak House

      London: Bradbury and Evans,, 1853. Octavo (207 x 127 mm). Early 20th century green half morocco by Bayntun, decorative gilt spine, green linen sides, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, with the wrappers from part X bound in at the end. Etched frontispiece, vignette title-page, and 38 plates (including the 10 "dark" plates) by "Phiz" ( H. K. Browne). Armorial bookplate of Robert P. Dudley. Spine lightly sunned. A very good clean copy, bound from the original parts (showing stab holes in the gutter), with the half-title. First edition, with the first-issue textual points as listed by Smith. H. K. Browne had experimented with the "dark plate" technique in Dombey and Son (1848) but in Bleak House their sombreness added a new tone to the illustration of Dickens's books. "As Dickens's vision of society darkened, Browne adjusted his techniques, pioneering in the use of 'dark plates', where the plate was machine-ruled in parallel grooves which printed an almost uniform tone either before or after the figures and background were hand drawn. These brooding, atmospheric designs harmonized with the gloomy, foggy world of Bleak House and Little Dorrit" (Robert Patten in The Oxford Companion to Charles Dickens, 2011, p. 59).

        [COLLECTION OF MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENTS RELATING TO A LITTLE KNOWN INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT IN THE CHINCHA ISLANDS NEAR PERU, INVOLVING UNITED STATES VESSELS OF THE PACIFIC SQUADRON, AN AMERICAN MERCHANT, THE PERUVIAN GOVERNMENT, AND BRITISH CHARGÉS D'AFFAIRES AT LIMA AND SANTIAGO]

      1853. Approximately [35]pp. Folio lettersheets. Overall condition is quite good. This small collection of manuscript documents reveals the details of a fascinating international incident between the American navy and the Peruvian government. According to one of the documents, a group of American shipmasters at the Chincha Islands complained about ill treatment by the local Peruvian commandante. Among other things, an American sailor was put in irons for killing a pelican. Ultimately the tiff was smoothed over by British officials. Most of the documents are contemporary manuscript copies of letters between various American naval officers, British Rear Admiral Fairfax Moresby, and the British chargés d'affaires at Lima and Santiago. Among the Americans making complaints was Theodorus Bailey, commander of the Defiance and a distinguished naval officer of the Pacific Squadron. A few of the documents concern a related or perhaps different incident in which the cargo of an American merchant named Cunningham was seized by Peruvian authorities. In the 1850s the Chincha Islands provided a valuable source of natural fertilizer, a commerce monopolized by the Peruvian government. An interesting example of gunboat diplomacy and the edgy relationship between Latin American countries and the U.S. in the period.
