        Essai sur l'inégalité des races humaines.

      Paris, Firmin Didot 1853 - 4 tomes in-8 de (4), XI, (1), 492, (2) / (4), 512, (2) / (4), 423, (1) / (2), 359, (1) pp. Demi-chagrin rouge, dos à nerfs ornés, tranches dorées. (Reliure de l'époque.) Première édition de l'oeuvre majeure d'Arthur de Gobineau. Elle a été tirée à ses frais "à 500 exemplaires, qui passeront à peu près inaperçus et dont le titre malheureux fondera plus tard la légende tenace d'un Gobineau père du racisme. En fait, l'ouvrage, appuyé sur une érudition trompeuse d'autodidacte, développe une sombre philosophie de l'Histoire : à l'origine des temps, les races humaines possédaient chacune ses facultés propres, la jaune douée de l'esprit pratique, la noire de disposition artistiques, la blanche des vertus d'honneur et de justice. Mais au cours des siècles, elles ont, en mélangeant leur sang, perdu leurs qualités primitives et sont vouées désormais à une décadence irrémédiable." En français dans le texte 271. Clouzot, Guide du bibliophile français 133 : "Rare et de plus en plus recherché". Printing and the Mind of Man 335. Très bel exemplaire. // // //

        Plano Del Puerto De La Havana levantado en 1854 por el Brigadier del Armada

      Madrid, 1853. No Binding. Fine. 23 ¾ x 34 ¾ inches. Bit of light offsetting, else mint condition. The rare, original Spanish edition of this official plan of Havana, executed with both precision and elegance, under the auspices of the official Spanish hydrographic office. A superb example of a large-scale work. It provides navigational information as well as a street plan of the city and some topographic features and was undoubtedly intended for military use. A legend at left, keyed to the plan, lists 55 structures and locales within the city, and another table lists 15 places outside the city's walls. The chart was re-engraved by the governmental hydrographic offices of both England and France in 1858. Cueto 202.

        Rollo's Tour in Europe: Rollo on the Atlantic (1853); Rollo in Paris (1854); Rollo in Switzerland (1854); Rollo on the Rhine (1855); Rollo in London (1855)

      Boston: W. J. Reynolds, 1853-55 - Jacob Abbott (1803-79), an American congregational minister and educator, wrote the famous Rollo series of books (Rollo at Work, Rollo at Play, etc.) to teach his young readers specific moral values and concepts. In these travel books, following the picturesque and educational experiences of Rollo and his uncle in narrative form, the young reader is taken along as though he were an accompanying guest, a lively format which helped to account for the books' immense popularity. The character of Rollo was modelled on Abbot's son Lyman, who himself became a distinguished minister and editor First Editions. 5 vols., Sm 8vo. Illustrated. Original maroon cloth, covers heavily embossed in blind, spines gilt titled, spines a bit spotted and sunned, occasional light foxing, overall near fine, and attractive, with contemporary ownership signatures of James Rindge Stanwood of Portsmouth, NH.

        Der grosse Volksfestzug in Nurnberg am 29. August 1853

      n.p. (Nuremberg): n.p. (Verlag Georg Maar), n.d. (ca. 1853). First edition.. Stiff card wraps. Very good. A single lithographed scene 6½ inches by approximately 275 inches (nearly 26 feet). Individual leaves are pasted together accordion style. The Nuremberg Folk Festival began in 1826 and included a large parade. This 1853 Festival was no exception and was commemorated by the present lithograph, reputedly executed by Leopold Itzel. A glorious example of lithography: The Herold der Stadt Nürnberg and Trompeter are followed by the Ehrenfahnenträgen für Bauern; Noris, the Representation of Nuremberg, follows in a Roman chariot; then trade representatives: artists, plumbers, armour, carpenters, locksmith, a Flora and Pomona in chariots, triumphal cart of Gartner, a train of brewers, Buttner and hosts, and finally floats from rural communities Steinbuhl, Mogeldorf and Rednizhembach, the last as a canal boat. The captions along the bottom are in German. The first 8 panels are hand colored, thereafter the lithograph is uncolored. Some light soiling , some folds repaired, occasionally trimmed closely; housed in original cardboard covers, worn at edges with their ribbon ties replaced. In all 27 participants or groups on 19 panels. Rare to start with and hardly ever found complete.

        Alarming Prospect The Single Ladies off to the Diggings

      London,, 1853.. Handcoloured engraving, 210 x 305 mm. on wove paper, very good, mounted. A wonderful satirical mid-nineteenth century cartoon portraying young, single and desirable ladies abandoning generous marriage proposals in favour of fortune seeking on the goldfields.The Prints and Printmaking in Australia and the Pacific online database confirms that the artist was renowned English caricaturist John Leech (1816-1874). Some of the ladies wait on the dock while a crowded ship bustles with belles in bonnets. One suitor is snubbed by a haughty lady with the caption "Bother yer hundred pounds and house in the public line! A likely start indeed!" while another lady in a yellow bonnet sneers "A twopenny, ha'penny fellow!". This disarming satire reveals the insecurity in society regarding the social mobility of women, and more widespread concerns about the population drain to the goldfields.This image was recently reproduced in Gold: forgotten histories and lost objects of Australia (2001) as emblematic of the social upheaval of the new discoveries of gold.

        Biographical Sketches of Joseph Smith the Prophet, and His Progenitors for many Generations

      Liverpool: Published for Orson Pratt by S.W. Richards, 1853. First edition. Leather bound. 297pp. Duodecimo [15.5 cm] Black diced leather with the title gilt stamped on the backstrip and gilt rules to the boards. This work has been resewn with new endsheets and pastedowns.Final leaf has been supplied in facsimile. Inscription to half-title in ink. A nice looking copy of this important Mormon work. This diminutive volume and the words contained therein have caused great controversy since it's original publication. Lucy Mack Smith (1776-1856) wrote the memoir based on her family history and the religious revelations of her son Joseph Smith (1805-1844). With Lucy Smith's permission, but without the approval of LDS Church President Brigham Young (1801-1877), Orson Pratt, Sr. (1811-1881) published Biographical Sketches in Liverpool, England in 1853. Initially, the book was praised in a November 1854 Deseret News article which stated that "…many facts which it contains, and never before published, are of great importance to the world, and the work constitutes a valuable acquisition to the libraries of the Saints." Pratt, who was one of the Twelve Apostles of the LDS Church, frequently battled with Brigham Young over their differing religious theories. Young "…was really angry at Pratt over doctrinal matters and, about half the time, while dressing him down in public and in private, simply threw in Biographical Sketches for good measure." (Anderson, Lavina Fielding, ed. Lucy's Book: A Critical Edition of Lucy Mack Smith's Family Memoir. Salt Lake City: Signature Books, 2001; p. 101). Further evidence of this doctrinal feud becoming personal between the two men can be found in the October 21, 1865 edition of the Millennial Star (pp. 657-658). The First Presidency of the LDS Church openly condemns Biographical Sketches and advises: "…it should be gathered up and destroyed…In Great Britain, diligence has been used in collecting and in disposing of this work, and we wish that same diligence continued there and also exercised here, at home, until not a copy is left. The inquiry may arise in the minds of some persons, 'Why do you want to destroy this book?' Because, we are acquainted with individual circumstances alluded to in it, and know many of the statements to be false…" The lengthy admonishment went on to state that, if any church members owned a copy: "…to dispose of it so it will never be read by any person again. If they do not, the responsibility of the evil results that may accrue from keeping it will rest upon them and not upon us…those who have been instructed respecting its character, and will still keep it on their tables, and have it in their houses… need rebuke, it is transmitting lies to posterity to take such a course, and we know that the curse of God will rest upon every one, after he comes to the knowledge of what is here said, who keeps these books for his children to learn and believe in lies. (Star pp. 657-658) Orson Pratt also did not escape public chastisement from the First Presidency: …"brother Pratt had it printed, and published it, without saying a word to the First Presidency or the Twelve about what he was doing. This is the way the book came into being. It was smuggled, juggled and foisted into existence as a book…" (Star pp. 657-658) Subsequently, many of the books were destroyed. Individuals still owning copies were instructed to turn them over to their Bishops or to the church offices to be disposed of. People who voluntarily turned in their copies were paid with a credit towards their tithing or in other works of the church. For this reason, the Biographical Sketches of Joseph Smith the Prophet, and his Progenitors for Many Generations is a rare, controversial and historically important book. Crawley 829.

        Exploration of the Valley of the Amazon, Made Under the Direction of the Navy Department [Four Volumes]

      Washington, D.C.: Robert Armstrong, Public Printer. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 1853, 1854. House issue. Two text volumes, with two folding maps, 52 lithograph plates, and many additional illustrations in the text; and two atlas volumes containing five large folding maps, all in very good condition. Original blind-stamped browned cloth, sunned at the spines, mild bumping to corners. This American expedition was organized by the U.S. Navy Department and conducted in 1851-52 to determine the feasibility of opening the region to American agricultural and slaveholding interests. The explorers traveled to Chile and then to Lima, Peru, where Herndon pushed into the upper Amazon and Gibbon turned south through Bolivia and into Brazil. The two groups met up again in Serpa, Brazil and continued down the Amazon to Para. Hill (803) describes the work as "a minute, accurate, and very interesting study on the aborigines of the Andes and on the geography of the Amazon and its tributaries" and Borba de Moraes (p. 336) calls it "an excellent book on the regions cited." See also Sabin 31524. While the text volumes are easily found, they are seldom accompanied by all of the maps in good condition.

Born at Quebec in February of 1790, Peter Skene Ogden is one of the most energetic and controversial figures to have left his mark on the North American fur trade. ...he joined the North West April 1809...His first station was at Ile-la-Crosse (Sask.), where soon after his arrival [in] 1810 he and fellow clerk Samuel Black were involved in a fight with Peter Fidler at the nearby HBC post. ...The terms of the coalition agreement between the HBC and the NWC...excluded Ogden and Black...from the new organization because of their violent conduct during the years of conflict between the two companies. ...Influenced by HBC governor George Simpson, who was concerned about the possible damage Ogden and Black might do in opposition...the London committee relented and in 1823 agreed that both men would be appointed chief traders. ...He was likely the author of `Traits of American-Indian Life and Character' (London, 1853), a work signed by "A Fur Trader." The events related in the 16 accounts that make up this volume correspond closely to Ogden's career. (DCB). Sixteen sketched of Indian life between 1823 and 1828 by an employee of the H.B.C.; eight relate to the Columbia River area, one to the Buffalo country, and two to the Lake Superior region while the 4th., 5th., 7th., 9th. and 12th. concern the present British Columbia. .

The captions along the bottom are in German. The first 8 panels are hand colored, thereafter the lithograph is uncolored. Some light soiling , some folds repaired, occasionally trimmed closely; housed in original cardboard covers, worn at edges with their ribbon ties replaced. In all 27 participants or groups on 19 panels. Rare to start with and hardly ever found complete. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Civilisation et Barbarie. Moeurs, Coutumes, Caracteres des Peuples Argentins. Facundo Quiroga et Aldao

      Arthus Bertrand, Paris 1853 - Xlvi, 383 pp, with a preface by the translator, A. Giraud. Dark pebbled cloth with five raised bands, marbled endpapers. Tight binding, light foxing, a few marginal pencil lines. First French edition of Sarmiento's most famous book, considered one of the most important works of Argentine literature and one of the most influential Spanish-language works of the nineteenth century. Written during a period of exile, the work traces the life of a violent Argentine gaucho named Facundo, using his biography as the basis for an analysis and critique of Argentine culture, which is characterized by a dichotomy between civilizing and barbaric influences. Sarmiento's views had a profound effect on discussion about the region's potential for progress and modernization. He was able to put his theories into practice when elected to the Presidency of Argentina in 1868. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Ten Months Among the Tents of the Tuski, with incidents of an Arctic boat expedition in search of Sir John Franklin, as far as the Mackenzie River, and Cape Bathurst

The plates, with tissue guards, are very clean, as are the text pages.

A very good copy. ***Hooper was on the search expedition led by Commander T.E.L. Plover, which left Plymouth in HMS Plover in early 1848, not returning until September 1850. .

        Les petits voyageurs en Californie

      Tours,: Ad Mame et Cie,, 1853.. Octavo, eight chromolithographic plates including frontispiece, some leaves thumbed (including preliminaries), a little shaken; otherwise good in original publisher's ornate gilt blocked cloth, page-edges gilt. A Frenchman down on his luck voyages from Le Havre to America, accompanied by two boys, to search for gold in California. Intended for a younger audience and with handsome chromolithographic plates, the voyage sees the three travel to San Francisco via New York, the Gulf of Mexico and the Panama Canal and is a colourful example of the gold rushes in the international imagination. Certainly the most interesting plate depicts San Francisco bay at mid-century.The work was clearly popular as Sabin notes further editions of 1857, 1858 and 1861 though these were issued in a significantly smaller format. The publisher, Mame et Cie issued other voyage accounts for younger readers including an account of La Perouse in 1852.Gumuchian, 1692.
