        THE TWENTY-FOUR BOOKS OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, CAREFULLY TRANSLATED ACCORDING TO THE MASSORETIC TEXT, AFTER THE BEST JEWISH AUTHORITIES. TORAH, NEVI'IM VE-KHETUVIM.

      Cincinnati ; Chicago : From the American Hebrew Pub. House, the Bloch Pub. and Print. Co, 1853 [1870s?]. Original Full Leather, 16mo, [6], iii-xii, 1243 pages. 17 cm. Title in Hebrew at head of title. The scarce Chicago Bloch edition, retaining the copyright page date of 1853, but probably published in the 1870s given the inclusion of the ?Advertisement to the London Edition" (which appeared in 1865, with 7 holdings in OCLC,) and its mid-19th Century calf binding. Bloch?s first office in Chicago dates to the 1870s, and Bloch did also publish an 1884 edition, but, unlike our copy, it lists the 1884 date and only Cincinnati (not Chicago, as this copy does) and contains 1236 pages (not 1243 as ours does). A Bloch publication of Leeser?s bible could almost certainly not have occurred before Leeser?s death in 1868, given the enmity between the Leader of American Orthodoxy and the Reform-oriented publishing house owned by Isaac M. Wise? brother-in-law, Edward Bloch. Leeser, famously, had printed an ?anonymous attack on Wise signed ?Lawyers? in the pages of his Occident shortly after the appearance of Minhag Amerika in 1857; this anti-Reform rejoinder singled out Bloch & Co. for allegedly keeping its store open on the Jewish Sabbath and closing it on Sunday, the Christian Sabbath? (Singerman). In our Bloch copy, the copyright is still held by Isaac Leeser; It was not until 1888 that ?his [Bloch?s] firm obtained the copyright of this popular and frequently reprinted landmark text.? OCLC lists only 2 holdings of the Chicago Bloch [1853] edition (Andrews University in Michigan and the Community of Christ library in Missouri), both in the Midwest, perhaps reflecting Bloch?s still-Midwestern orientation at the time. Indeed, not many years later, Bloch left Chicago completely and moved its second headquarters to New York. This edition not listed in Singerman nor in Goldman. Edgewear to leather boards and many pages. Spine professionally rebacked. Good Condition thus. (AMR-38-23)

        [ON SATURN] Sur les Dimensions des Anneaux de Saturne // Memoires de L'Academie Imperiale des Sciences de Saint-Petersbourg. Sixieme Serie. Sciences Mathematique et Physiques. Tome V. [i.e. The Dimensions of the Rings of Saturn // Memoirs of Imperial Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg. 6 series. Mathematics and Physics. Vol. 5]

      St. Petersburg: de L'Imprimerie de L'Academie Imperiale des Sciences, 1853. 403-548, [2] pp. 4vo. Original blue wrappers with a decorative border on the covers. Uncut. A very good copy. The front cover detached from the spine, tears on the spine and covers, two spots on the end cover. Rare. First and only edition. Report on discovering and measuring the Saturn rings. Otto Vasilevich Struve (1819-1905) was a Russian astronomer, a leading member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, second in the unique astronomical dynasty which lasted for more than a century. He started working with his father at Pulkovo Observatory and headed it between 1862 and 1889. The American astronomer Benjamin Gould said that Struve made Pulkovo Observatory "the astronomical capital of the world". Struve discovered more than 500 double stars, observed planets and their satellites, comets and nebulae. He won the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1850. Among his many achievements he also measured the rings of Saturn and discovered (in parallel with other researchers and almost at the same time) the dark inner ring of Saturn. Struve also devised the ring naming system still used today. It is interesting that Otto was the first scientist of the Struve family to visit the United States. The visit served several purposes, not only providing an opportunity to purchase optics for the new 30-inch telescope in Pulkovo, but more significantly it was a part of a long-term Russia-US astronomy partnership during the 19th century. As a result of Struve's initiative, two US astronomers were appointed Foreign Members of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

        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.

      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.

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").
