        A Visit to the Indian Archipelago, in H.M. Ship Maeander . With Portions of the Private Journal of Sir James Brooke?

      Richard Bentley, London 1853 - Two volumes, octavo, with eight fine tinted lithograph plates (printed by Day & Son); folding chart in a rear pocket; a fine copy, very well bound in half calf and marbled boards in original scarlet cloth with gilt vignettes on upper boards. With plates after Oswald Brierley. A fine set of this splendid book, with eight superb plates lithographed by Hawkins after Oswald Brierley. Henry Keppel had first served in the Malacca Straits in the early 1840s during the campaign against the Borneo pirates. During that time he formed a close friendship with Sir James Brooke, who had been appointed rajah of Sarawak in perpetuity by the sultan of Brunei. In 1847 Keppel returned to the region as captain of the frigate Mæander which was to convey Brooke to Labuan, an island off Borneo. 'At Brooke's suggestion, Labuan was ceded to Great Britain in 1846 by the Sultan of Brunei; it was made a crown colony, and Brooke was named governor. Keppel's book treats of the voyage to Labuan, incidents there, piracy in the South China Sea, and gives a description of Manila' (Hill). On the homeward journey the Mæander called in at Port Essington, Cape York, Sydney, Hobart and Norfolk Island. Keppel's accounts of these ports-of-call are both entertaining and readable. He reports at length on the work of Captain Owen Stanley of the Rattlesnake - who died in Sydney whilst Keppel was on an inland tour with Governor FitzRoy. By coincidence the fine plates which illustrate Keppel's account are by the distinguished marine artist Oswald Brierley, who joined the Mæander after having served as artist on board the Rattlesnake. In an uncharacteristic slip by Ferguson he did not record Keppel's book despite its considerable Australian importance, while Abbey's description of an earlier 1852 edition was in error.

        The Story of Mont Blanc

      London: David Bogue, 1853. London: David Bogue,, 1853. Octavo (190 × 116 mm) Near contemporary blue half calf, marbled boards, edges and endpapers, red and plum labels to the spine, small flower devices gilt in compartments. Hand-coloured engraved frontispiece,title-page, and numerous other vignettes to the text. A little rubbed, particularly on the joints, light browning and scattered foxing throughout, overall very good. First edition. Smith was a "miscellaneous author, public lecturer, and mountaineer … best known for his entertaining lectures about his travels in the 1850s" (ODNB). On 12 August 1851 Smith climbed Mont Blanc with three Oxford students and sixteen guides, and the following year 'Mr. Albert Smith's Ascent of Mont Blanc' opened at the Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, the stage-set designed to suggest a Swiss chalet. "He interspersed descriptions of his journey to Chamonix with patter songs lampooning British tourists in Europe, and St Bernard dogs roamed the hall during the intermission. The show culminated in his dramatic account of the ascent … 'Mont Blanc' was a sensational success and ran for six years". Ruskin was dismayed by Smith's "Cockney ascent of Mont Blanc", but his exploits inspired "many people to visit Chamonix and to climb Mont Blanc. Although the mountain had been climbed first in 1786, ascents were still infrequent events when he climbed the peak … During Smith's entertainments in the 1850s the ascent of Mont Blanc became common, and mountaineering in the Alps became a popular sport. He was a founder member of the Alpine Club in 1857".

        Magnalia Christi Americana; or, The Ecclesiastical History of New-England, from its First Planting, in the Year 1620, unto the Year of Our Lord 1698. In Seven Books., in Two Volumes, with an Introduction and Occasional Notes, and Translations of the Hebrew, Greek, and Latin Quotations

      Hartford: Silas Andrus & Son. 1853 - Second American edition, including a new preface and the preface from the 1820 edition. This copy belonged to the Stowe family, and is quite likely the precise copy referenced in Harriet Beecher Stowe's 'Poganuc People': "It was a happy hour when [father] brought home and set up in his book-case Cotton Mather's "Magnalia," in a new edition of two volumes." (quoted in Baker, America's Gothic Fiction: The Legacy of Magnalia Christi America, p. 5). Harriet is noted as among the authors influenced by this title (Hall's Dictionary of National Biography). Given the importance of the work, and it's influence on Harriet, it seems quite likely that it was passed down from her father Lyman to her family. Her husband Calvin's ownership stamp ('Rev. C.E. Stowe, Hartford, Conn.') - appears on the title page of each. Signatures of Charles E. Stowe ('Chas. E Stowe') and Lyman Beecher Stowe on the front endpaper of each volume, indicating that it was also passed down from her to Charles (her son), and then to Lyman (her grandson). Rebound. Despite the reference in the title, this edition does not appear to have been issued with a map. Minor pencil marginalia with a few sentences underlined, ostensibly by one of the Stowes, and with a brief note on p. 70 that appears to be in Calvin's hand (based on comparison with one of his letters in the Beecher-Stowe family papers held by Harvard University's Schlesinger Library). Edges rubbed, binder's plate on rear endpaper of each volume, small internal tear to cloth of vol. 2 rear board along fore-edge, Engraving of Oliver Cromwell mounted opposite title of vol. 2 (seems to have been taken from another work), engraving of Macaulay mounted on front flyleaf of vol. 2. 1853 Half-Leather. Complete in two volumes. 626; 682 pp. 8vo. Brown leather spine & corners, grey cloth boards, gilt titles & rules, red page ridges, blue endpapers. Frontispiece of author in volume 1. Likely among the most important copies of one of the most important works of American history and religion. A foundational work of New England history, originally published in London in 1702. Cotton Mather was the grandson of two of the founding ministers of Massachusetts. Sabin 46393. Howes M-391: The "most famous 18th century American book." Includes: Antiquities.

        Magnalia Christi Americana; or, The Ecclesiastical History of New-England, from its First Planting, in the Year 1620, unto the Year of Our Lord 1698. In Seven Books., in Two Volumes, with an Introduction and Occasional Notes, and Translations of the Hebrew, Greek, and Latin Quotations

      Hartford: Silas Andrus & Son., 1853. Second Edition. Half-Leather. Very Good/No Jacket. Second American edition, including a new preface and the preface from the 1820 edition. This copy belonged to the Stowe family, and is quite likely the precise copy referenced in Harriet Beecher Stowe's 'Poganuc People': "It was a happy hour when [father] brought home and set up in his book-case Cotton Mather's "Magnalia," in a new edition of two volumes." (quoted in Baker, America's Gothic Fiction: The Legacy of Magnalia Christi America, p. 5). Harriet is noted as among the authors influenced by this title (Hall's Dictionary of National Biography). Given the importance of the work, and it's influence on Harriet, it seems quite likely that it was passed down from her father Lyman to her family. Her husband Calvin's ownership stamp ('Rev. C.E. Stowe, Hartford, Conn.') - appears on the title page of each. Signatures of Charles E. Stowe ('Chas. E Stowe') and Lyman Beecher Stowe on the front endpaper of each volume, indicating that it was also passed down from her to Charles (her son), and then to Lyman (her grandson). Rebound. Despite the reference in the title, this edition does not appear to have been issued with a map. Minor pencil marginalia with a few sentences underlined, ostensibly by one of the Stowes, and with a brief note on p. 70 that appears to be in Calvin's hand (based on comparison with one of his letters in the Beecher-Stowe family papers held by Harvard University's Schlesinger Library). Edges rubbed, binder's plate on rear endpaper of each volume, small internal tear to cloth of vol. 2 rear board along fore-edge, Engraving of Oliver Cromwell mounted opposite title of vol. 2 (seems to have been taken from another work), engraving of Macaulay mounted on front flyleaf of vol. 2. 1853 Half-Leather. Complete in two volumes. 626; 682 pp. 8vo. Brown leather spine & corners, grey cloth boards, gilt titles & rules, red page ridges, blue endpapers. Frontispiece of author in volume 1. Likely among the most important copies of one of the most important works of American history and religion. A foundational work of New England history, originally published in London in 1702. Cotton Mather was the grandson of two of the founding ministers of Massachusetts. Sabin 46393. Howes M-391: The "most famous 18th century American book." Includes: Antiquities.
