        Don Pirlone a Roma. Memorie di un italiano dal 1° settembre 1848 al 31 dicembre 1850. Quarta edizione e seconda economica.

      Torino, Tip. del Progresso diretta da Barera ed Ambrosio, 1853. 1853 3 voll. in-4° (262x182mm), pp. XIII, (2), 204; (2), 204; (2), 216; legatura m. pelle marrone con titolo e filetti in oro ai dorsi. 306 tavv. caricaturali non firmate (ma tra gli incisori figurano Francesco Ratti, Sebastiano Vaiani e Achille Monneret) incise su rame f.t. Ogni volume presenta un doppio frontespizio, il primo dei quali con titolo entro cornice allegorica. Capilettera e finalini ornati ad ogni singolo capitolo. Qualche inevitabile fioritura, alcuni restauri a cuffie e cerniere. Ottimo esemplare nell'insieme, conservante all'interno le rare brossure originali figurate. Quarta edizione (il termine "economica" designa semplicemente la sua apparizione a dispense) di questa famosa opera di satira risorgimentale, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1850, i cui bersagli polemici preferenziali sono il Papato, l'Austria e la Francia. Il Pinto, nato a Roma nel 1818, spentosi nel 1910, già comproprietario ed articolista del celebre periodico satirico "Don Pirlone", riparò a Torino dopo la caduta della Repubblica Romana; scrivendo la presente opera egli vi trasfuse lo stesso mordace spirito polemico che aveva animato il quasi omonimo periodico: "Edotti dall'esperienza, sappiamo quale profonda traccia lascino nell'animo umano gli incancellabili colpi del ridicolo". Bertarelli, 6395. Bibliogr. d. età del Risorgimento, II, 249.

        Boston, From City Point near Sea Street

      New York: Henry I. Megarey, 1853. A SPECTACULAR VIEW OF THE BOSTON SHORELINE DURING THE MID-NINETEENTH CENTURY Colored aquatint Image size: approx. 19 3/5" x 25 1/10" Framed size: 31" x 36 3/5" ca. 1853-1856 Literature: Deák, Picturing America, 408 W.J. Bennett's exquisitely colored aquatint provides the viewer with a stunning view of Boston's harbor. Indeed, this work possesses the three qualities that define Bennett's best aquatints: clarity, sparkle, and luminosity. The lush clouds and azure sky are particularly well rendered. In addition, Bennett expertly organizes all of the work's compositional elements. The schooner's sail supplies the image with a strong left border, while the point of the schooner's anchor returns the viewer's gaze back in the direction of the city of Boston. Manned rowboats also offer the viewer a sense of scale. . Book.

        Laws at Present in Force in the Island of St. Lucia

      1853. [St. Lucia]. Laws at Present in Force in the Island of St. Lucia. London: Printed by W. Clowes and Sons, 1853. vi, 388 pp. Octavo (9-1/2" x 6"). Contemporary calf, rebacked, red and black lettering pieces to spine, endpapers renewed.

Location label to spine, small embossed stamp to front board, inkstamps to preliminaries. A solid copy of a scarce title. * With index and side-notes. St. Lucia was discovered by Columbus in 1502. The first group of colonists, from England, were massacred by the Caribs, but the French succeeded in colonizing the island in 1642. It passed between France and Great Britain a number of times and became a British possession in 1803. It became independent and joined the Commonwealth in 1979. As one would suspect, traces of French law remain in the island's legal system. OCLC locates 9 copies in North America. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 7:341.

        From the Ordnance Survey of the Country Thirty Miles Round London.

      London: G.F. Cruchley, [c.1853].. Map dimensions 108 x 132 cm, overall dimensions 114 x 137 cm. A fine large folding map of the environs of London, extending from Hertford down to Godalming and Chatham across to Bagshot. Scale: one inch to the mile. Bright original colour in block denoting the parks and estates and in outline demarcating the county boundaries and the railway lines. Dissected into 48 sections and mounted on linen, folds into original dark green moiré cloth slipcase with publisher's title label to upper board, matching moiré cloth to the folded end sections of the map. The case sympathetically repaired at the head of one spine and the joint adjacent, the map in excellent condition. Cf. Hyde, D. & H. 333. The map was first issued by John Walter Froggett in 1831 with a slightly different title. According to James Howgego Cruchley's first rendering of the map appeared in 1840, of which two editions appeared within a year. James Hyde records six subsequent editions published from 1854 onwards. This example would appear to have been issued a year or two earlier, in that it shows the Great Northern Railway going into Kings Cross (the station opened in 1852) and the Great Western is shown terminating in its original, slightly more western, location (the new station opened in 1854). Population figures for boroughs and parishes are indicated, presumably from data provided in 1851 census.

        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.

      London: John Murray, 1853.. 1st Edition: xvi, 417pp, illustrated, 11 illustrations of which 4 lithographic plates (3 tinted), 1 coloured folding map. [MISSING the lithographic frontispiece] . Rebound, contemporary half leather with bluse marbled boards, gilt ruling and titling to spine. A rare and very important book on the expedition led by T.E.L. Moore on the Brigg Plover in search of Sir John Franklin. The expedition, in which Hooper participated as a marine officer, was forced to winter in Providence-Bay, where Hooper could gather an enormous wealth of useful information on the Tuski. When the ship was free of ice, Hooper joined Pullen's boat expedition along the arctic north coast of America to the Mackenzie River and Cape Bathurst. In summer 1850 the expedition crossed the northenmost part of Canada and returned to England. - Henze II, 622/23. The book also contains information on the culture of the North Alaska Esquimaux and the Tuski. Hooper travelled aboard the Plover as Acting mate with the British Naval Franklin Search Expedition from Plymouth (1848-52) under Captain T.E.L. Moore. The expedition was sent by the Admiralty to serve as a search and supply ship for John Franklin's Northwest Passage Expedition (1845-48) and to assist with Henry Kellett's ship Herald of the British Naval Franklin Search Expedition (1848-50). The Plover over-wintered in 1848-49 in a small bay on the Siberian coastline near a Chukchi village, and enjoyed excellent relations with the Natives. Hooper's detailed descriptions of the customs, dwellings, clothing and beliefs of the Chukchis and adjacent North Alaskan Eskimos are complemented in his narrative by colour plates illustrative of the people and their ways of life. The following spring, W.J.S. Pullen and Hooper embarked on a coastal exploration of the region between Wainwright Inlet and Mackenzie River for traces of the Franklin Expedition. [AB 7395]. Covers heavily worn, front hinge beginning to split, some leather missing from corners and spine.

        Wast Water

      London: Published by Thos. Agnew & Son, 1853. Tinted lithograph with rich publisher's colour. Printed on wove paper. Trimmed to image as issued. In excellent condition with the exception of some very minor foxing in the image. 13 3/16 x 19 3/4 inches. A stunning view of Wast Water, from the deluxe portfolio edition of John Baker Pyne's magnificent work "The English Lake District." The Lake District first came to the fore with the rise of the Romantic Movement during the second half of the eighteenth century. The poet William Wordsworth, a native of the district, established the area as the epitome of the ideal landscape, and artists and tourists alike visited the regions natural beauties in search of the Romantic ideal. Poets such as Byron, Shelley, and Keats proclaimed the Lakes as the manifestation of the "Picturesque." By the middle of the nineteenth century, when Pyne visited the area, the Lakes were well established in the national consciousness as the most beautiful natural reserve in England. Bristol-born James Baker Pyne is now considered by many to have been second only to Turner in his ability to capture the essence of the English landscape. After training initially for the Law, he turned to painting in his twenties. He moved to London in 1835, where he exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Artists (where he later became Vice President). He traveled widely throughout Britain and Europe, but he is best known for his series of views of the Lakes, painted between 1848 and 1851. This exquisite view comes from the deluxe portfolio edition of Pyne's celebrated text "The English Lake District." First published in 1853, the deluxe edition was issued in custom-made portfolios with the images superbly coloured and tipped onto thick wove cards. Examples of these images are difficult to find, making this striking print a true rarity. Pyne's seminal work was later reissued by Day & Son in 1859 with the title "Lake Scenery of England." Abbey, Scenery of Great Britain and Ireland, in Aquatint and Lithography 1770-1860 p. 123, no. 196, plate 13; Tooley, English Plate Books with Coloured Plates 1790-1860 no. 387, plate 12

        Album pintoresco du Cuba.

      Quer-4°. Kolorierter Originalumschlag, 26 handkolorierte Lithographien, 1 mehrfach gefaltete kolorierte Karte von Kuba und 1 gefalteter kolorierter Plan von Havanna. Neuer Halblederband mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel und Rückenvergoldung auf fünf Bünden. In Halbleinwandschuber Palau 167989. - Sabin 17748. - Cueto: Miahlhe's Colonial Cuba S. 73 - 120. - Das berühmteste Ansichtenwerk Cubas Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Von Cueto als 'Album I' bezeichnet der als Drucker eine Hamburger Druckerei C. Adler vermutet. Von der vorliegenden Ausgabe lässt sich aber kein Exemplar in einer deutschen Bibliothek nachweisen. Der ursprünglich aus Bordeaux stammende Mialhe war Schüler von François Edouard Picot (s. Bénézit 7,382). Er wanderte nach Cuba aus, wo er als Lehrer an der Kunstakademie wirkte. Daneben veröffentlichte er 3 Ansichtenwerke mit Veduten und Szenen aus dem Volksleben, die schnell populär wurden und etliche Nachahmer fanden. Hier eine von 2 Nachdruckausgaben nach der 1848 bei Marquier in La Havanna erschienenen Originalausgabe, die 28 Tafeln umfasste. Die Ansichten in der Originalausgabe waren nicht koloriert. Neben der vorliegenden erschien eine weitere Ausgabe zur gleichen Zeit in Berlin bei Storch und Kramer in Chromolithographie. Unser Exemplar mit dem Verlegernamen B. May y Ca. auf dem miteingebundenen Originalumschlag. Einige Tafeln mit dem Monogramm E.Y. oder der Signatur C. Beer. Der ursprünglich 1849 von W.S. Barnard gezeichnete Stadtplan von Havanna hier mit dem Datum von 1853. Nur in der vorliegenden Ausgabe sind die Tafeln von Hand koloriert. Die Tafeln sind gegenüber der chromolithographierten Ausgabe im fein aquarelliertem Kolorit. 18 von 26 Tafeln sind mit Titeln in Spanisch, Englisch und Deutsch versehen, 8 nur in Spanisch. Gegenüber der Ausgabe mit 27 Tafeln fehlen die Tafeln 25-27: Corrida de toro - Vista de una casa de caldera - Vista de una vega de tabaco. Zusätzlich sind in der vorliegenden Ausgabe vorhanden: Vista del Fondo de la Bahia de La Habana - Sagua la Grande. Der gefaltete kolorierte Plan von La Habana (Plangrösse 33x26 cm) ist umgeben von 14 kolorierten Ansichten der Stadt, (Blattgrösse 46x59). Die kolorierte Karte (34x25 cm) mit einer farbigen Kartusche und 16 kleinen Ansichten. Der hier eingebundene Originalumschlag wird von Emilio Cueto in seinem Werkverzeichnis der Lithografien Mialhés nicht erwähnt. - Vereinzelt schwach stockfleckig. Die Karte und der Plan mit alt hinterlegtem Einriss und im Falz verstärkt. - The most famous book of views of Cuba of the middle of the 19th century. Originary of Bordeaux, Mialhe was a scholar of François Edouard Picot (s. Bénézit 7,382). He expatriated himself to Cuba and worked there as a teacher in the Cuban Liceo Literario y Artístico. He also published three lithographically- illustrated works with veduta and scenes of everyday life, which became quickly very popular and were therefore often copied. This work is one of two reprints of the original edition printed after 1848 by Marquier in Havana, and which contained 29 plates. The views of the original edition were not coloured. Next to this edition, another one was printed at the same time in Berlin by Storch und Kramer with chromolithographs. Our copy has the editors name B. May y Ca. on the bound original wrapper. Some plates carry the monogram E.Y. or a signature C. Bur. The city map of Havana originally drawn by W.S. Barnard in 1849 is dated here from 1853. This is the only copy with hand-coloured plates. The plates have a fine aquarell colouring in comparison to the chromolithographs. 18 of 26 plates have titles in Spanish, English and German, 8 only in Spanish. In comparison with the edition with 27 plates, plates 25-27 are missing: Corrida de toro - Vista de una casa de caldera - Vista de una vega de tabaco. Additional plates are: Vista del Fondo de la Bahia de La Habana - Sagua la Grande. The folded plan of La Habana (dimension 33x26 cm) is encircled with 14 coloured views of the city, (dimension of the leaf 46x59). The coloured map (34x25 cm) with a coloured cartouche and 16 small views. Isolated lightly foxed. The map and the plan with anciently repaired tear and reinforced folds [8 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

        Leffler, 1852-53. 8:o.

      (2),221,(3) + (4),212 s. Två häftade och oskurna volymer i tryckta omslag. Del I i grönt obetydligt solkigt omslag, del II i ljusblått. Bägge volymerna ngt snedlästa. Del I ouppskuren på sina håll. En reva i övre marginalen på s. 217 i del I och en pappersdefekt i yttermarginalen på s. 143 i del II. Från biblioteket på Herrborum.. Leijonhufvud & Brithelli Kvinnan inom svenska litteraturen s. 98. En andra upplaga av del I trycktes i Helsingfors 1853 och en tredje i Uppsala samma år. Med ett företal av P. D. A. Atterbom. Innehåller bl.a. dikterna "Alkoranens bud", "Zigenarflickan", den av fotografin inspirerade "Hjertats daguerreotyp", "Bakningsvisa" ("Baka, baka/ liten kaka") och skaldestycket "Ragnar Lodbrok" med vilket Knös vann Svenska akademiens stora pris 1851. På s. 201-12 i del II avtrycks översättningar av de samtida amerikanska poeterna William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878), Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-82) och Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-82). Thekla Knös (1815-80) växte upp i Uppsala där hennes mor Alida höll litterär salong. Såväl Alida som Thekla tillhörde de mer kända personerna i stadens sällskapsliv och författare som Geijer, Atterbom m.fl. hörde till umgängeskretsen. "Svenskt biografiskt lexikon" menar att skaldestycket "Ragnar Lodbrok" saknar "all originalitet" men tillägger "I de smärre dikter som utgavs 52-53 med företal av Atterbom, kommer K:s talang bättre till sin rätt. Några är barnvisor, som blev mycket omtyckta, andra hämtar motiv från naturen o vardagslivets förhållanden. Det är 'täcka' poem i efterromantikens idealistiska o idylliska stil". Atterbom skriver i sitt förord att Geijer några få veckor före sin död hade givit honom i uppdrag att dels färdigställa en minnesstod över Thorild, dels möjliggöra utgivningen av Thekla Knös dikter: "Loford öfver deras författarinna, uttalade med hela värman af en faderlig vän, voro de sista utlåtelser jag från hans läppar hörde."

      First Edition, (i-ix),x,(xi-xii),(1), 408pp. Illustrated with 13 coloured etched plates by John Leech and 80 text wood engravings, royal octavo, FINE RED MOROCCO BY ROGER DE COVERLEY, spine gilt extra in compartments, all edges gilt, wide inner dentelles gilt, boards triple gilt ruled, a very good copy, London, Bradbury, Evans, and Co., 1853. * FURTHER PHOTOGRAPHS ON REQUEST. First Issue with dedication leaf to to Lord Elcho. Gee p. 126. Higginson p. 432. NCBEL III 967. Podeschi 187. Slater pp. 110-11. Tooley 476. * Robert Smith Surtees (1805 -1864) was an English editor, novelist and sporting writer. He launched out on his own with the New Sporting Magazine in 1831, contributing the comic papers which appeared as Jorrocks' Jaunts and Jollities in 1838. Jorrocks, the sporting cockney grocer, with his vulgarity and good-natured artfulness, was a great success with the public, and Surtees produced more Jorrocks novels in the same vein, notably Handley Cross, where the description of the house is very reminiscent of Hamsterley. Another hero, Soapey Sponge, appears in Mr Sponge's Sporting Tour, possibly Surtees best work… As a creator of comic personalities, Surtees is still very readable today. Thackeray envied him his powers of observation, while William Morris considered him 'a master of life' and ranked him with Dickens. The novels are engaging and vigorous, and abound with sharp social observation, with a keener eye than Dickens for the natural world. Perhaps Surtees most resembles the Dickens of Pickwick Papers, which was originally intended as mere supporting matter for a series of sporting illustrations to rival Jorrocks. - Wikipedia

        Garfield’s signed copy of “Heroines of History” read by him while a student at Hiram Eclectic Institute

      The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of their books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below: Signed Book “Heroines of History” by John S. Jenkins. 520 pages, 5” x 7.75”. Auburn: Alden, Beardsley & Co., 1852. Signed in pencil “J.A. Garfield / Hiram. Aug 11 / 1853” on the front free-endpaper, most probably an early variant signature of the 21-year-old future President. Bound in brown cloth, gilt-embossed pictorial title on front cover, blind-embossed with same design on back cover. Rubbed at edges of covers and spine; soiling on covers. Professionally restored at hinges and joints. Light brown spine with ornate gilt design and gilt lettering “heroines / of / history / Alden. Beardsley & Co. / Auburn.” Garfield’s 2.25” x 1.5” bookplate “Inter Folia Fructus. / Library of / James A. Garfield. / No.” affixed inside front cover; “Case 10. Shelf B.” penned in unknown hand on bookplate. Waterstained on some pages. Foxing and soiling throughout the book. Very good condition. Biographies of Cleopatra (engraving on frontispiece), Isabella of Castile, Joan of Arc, Maria Theresa, Josephine, Elizabeth of England, Mary of Scotland, Catherine of Russia, Marie Antoinette, and Madame Roland. Engravings of each except Isabella, Maria Theresa, Catherine, and Roland. On January 9, 1872, Congressman James A. Garfield wrote to Elizabeth Cady Stanton declining her invitation to address the Suffrage Convention in Washington. In part, “While I heartily sympathize with all efforts that will elevate women and better their condition, I do not believe that suffrage will accomplish that result.” In 1851, after finishing his studies in at Geauga Seminary in Chester, Ohio, James A. Garfield entered the principal educational institution of the Campbellites, Hiram Eclectic Institute (later Western Reserve Eclectic, then Hiram College). He made his expenses by teaching in the English departments, and also gave instruction in the Latin and Greek. After three years, in the autumn of 1854, James A. Garfield entered the junior class at Williams College in Massachusetts.

Otherwise an excellent copy. Although published simultaneously with the first American edition in cloth the paper wrappers edition is much rarer.“The novel, like its predecessor The Professor (then unpublished), is based on the author’s experiences in Brussels, here renamed Villette, and also has as its centre a pupil-teacher relationship…The novel combines a masterly portrayal of Belgian daily life with a highly personal use of the elements of Gothic fiction; Charlotte Brontë uses hints of the supernatural…to heighten the impression of her heroine’s nervous isolation and heroic fortitude; but all the apparitions are found to have realistic explanations” (The Oxford Companion to English Literature).“Villette was published on March 4, 1853. 50 cents. It was published simultaneously in cloth [at $1. Twelvemo, with collation: [2, blank], [2, advertisements], iv, 502, [2, advertisements] pp. plus [16] pp. advertisements for books published by Harper & Brothers] and copies in either binding constitute the first American edition” (Smith).Smith, Brontë, pp. 146-152.

With the general title to the first part above, quarto, half calf gilt in period style, very good copies, London, Royal Society, 1853 - 1882. Includes many major papers including those on radiant heat, the atmosphere, absorption spectroscopy of gases &c. John Tyndall FRS (1820 - 1893) prominent 19th century physicist. His initial scientific fame arose in the 1850s from his study of diamagnetism. Later he studied thermal radiation, and produced a number of discoveries about processes in the atmosphere. From 1853 to 1887 he was professor of physics at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, where he became the successor to positions held by Michael Faraday. "The Tyndall Centre is named after John Tyndall, the physicist who was one of the first scientists to recognise the earth's natural greenhouse effect and to identify the relative radiative forcing values of the different greenhouse gases. In the 1860's, Tyndall began to suggest that slight changes in the atmospheric composition could bring about climatic variations. He was exploring radiation passing through the atmosphere and noted that, "The waves of heat speed from our earth through our atmosphere towards space. These waves dash in their passage against the atoms of oxygen and nitrogen, and against molecules of aqueous vapour. Thinly scattered as these latter are, we might naturally think of them meanly as barriers to the waves of heat." Tyndall's main interest was with water vapour and its impact on radiation, but he also dealt with the radiative forcing of other greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide." (Tyndall Centre for Climate Change note)Most importantly he identified that there was a greenhouse effect, whether natural or anthropogenic. For water vapour he noted that: "…this aqueous vapour is a blanket more necessary to the vegetable life of England than clothing is to man. Remove for a single summer night the aqueous vapour from the air that overspreads this country, and you would assuredly destroy every plant capable of being destroyed by a freezing temperature. The warmth of our fields and gardens would pour itself unrequited into space, and the sun would rise upon an island held fast in the iron grip of frost … its presence would check the earth's loss; its absence without sensibly altering the transparency of the air, would open wide a door for the escape of the earth's heat into infinitude."

        Tales and Fairy Stories. Translated by Madame de Chatelain. Illustrated by Henry Warren.

      London, George Routledge and Co., 1853. Uncut in the orig. full red clothbinding w. richly gilt decorated back and gilt and blindstamped front board. Hinges worn and crisp, spine internally worn. Old repairs to capitals and hinges. Inner hinges weak. Illustrated w. 8 plates.. The rare first edition of Chatelain's fairy tale-translation, the 6th English Andersen fairy tale-translation to appear, and the one considered the very best of the English translations that appeared within Andersen's life-time (the first four appeared in 1846 and the fifth in 1847).As opposed to the other early fairy tale-translations, Chatelain's is very accurate and reliable. Interestingly enough, many of the fairy tales have received new titles in her translation. The translation comprises 45 fairy tales."De vigtigste engelske oversættere af H.C. Andersens eventyr i perioden 1846 - 1875 er følgende elleve: Mary Howitt, Charles Boner, Caroline Peachey, Meta Taylor, Charles Beckwith Lohmeyer, Madame de Chatelain, Anne S. Bushby, Alfred Wehnert, H.W. Dulcken, Mrs. H.B. Paull og Augusta Plesner (sidstnævnte i samarbejde med forskellige andre)." (Bredsdorff, Andersen og England, p. 489). (i.e.: "The most important translators of H.C. Andersen's fairy tales between 1846 - 1875 are the following eleven: Mary Howitt, Charles Boner, Caroline Peachey, Meta Taylor, Charles Beckwith Lohmeyer, Madame de Chatelain, Anne S. Bushby, Alfred Wehnert, H.W. Dulcken, Mrs. H.B. Paull and Augusta Plesner (the last in coorporation with different other people)." [own translation] ).The fairy tales were originally written in Danish, and were printed thus between 1835 and 1844
