Cyrus Lewis
Conneticutt: 1853. See listing. An amazing handwritten book of the recollections of the life of Cyrus Ellis Lewis (1853-1941) including memories of hearing the death of President Lincoln and his visit to a Clairvoyant when his first born child was on its deathbed and upon her instructions the baby was healed! See photo of his story about watching a corpse to protect it from cats!!! Also family history, pranks as a youngster, a second visit to the Clairvoyant who predicted the death of his brother in law and life as an Undertaker! He includes local town folk stories, town history, and remembrances of current events he lived through. The journal was penned by him c1939. I can imagine his mind was as sharp as a tack and he decided to write his life story perhaps at prompting of his children or grandchildren. Perhaps Cyrus was going to publish his life story. It is a fascinating read! I couldn't put it down! Cyrus Ellis Lewis (1853-1941) born in Sharon Connecticut was a son of ElihuThompson Lewis (1817-1897) and Joanna Chase Thomas (1818-1906). Cyrus married Mary Skinner (1858-1903). His father was a blacksmith.Cyrus is buried in Sharon CT in Riverside Cemetery (that Cemetery is mentioned in here) according to research the children Clifford (1884-1954); Easter Lillian (1890-1904) I did not see mentions of death of daughter perhaps too painful. He had Oliver and Cyrus (b1892) AND according to research he WAS married 2x as clairvoyant said, he does not reference her; Adelaide (1855-1941) she outlived him 5 months. Named after his grandfather Cyrus Lewis (1778-1861) his great gran … [Click Below for Full Description]

When Harper published the second volume, they also released a new printing of the first (with its date changed to 1854, and with their address changed to 82 Beekman Street). A two-volume edition was also published by Jenks, Hickling & Swan of Boston, but with both volumes dated 1854. This is a very good copy, the only significant defect being some chipping at the ends of the spines. In our experience this edition (especially the 1853-dated first volume) is scarce in original cloth -- much scarcer than the three-volume English edition. LOWEST PRICE ONLINE!

FOUCAULT, Jean Bernard Léon.
Paris: Bachelier, 1853. First edition. First edition, rare, and an exceptionally fine copy, of Foucault's doctoral thesis on the speed of light, in which he provides a convincing proof for the wave theory of light. In the 1840s Foucault undertook a series of optical experiments using an apparatus of rotating mirrors to determine the velocity of light. Originally developed by Charles Wheatstone to measure the velocity of electricity, the rotating mirror apparatus had been proposed as an instrument for the measurement of light in 1838 by Dominique-François Arago who failed in his own attempts to carry out the experiment. Foucault's initial work was carried out in conjunction with the physicist Armand Hippolyte Louis Fizeau (1819-1896); but a personal dispute broke up their partnership in 1847 and the two collaborators became rivals, working separately on the same problem using the same technique. Both reached the same conclusion, but while Fizeau was the first to obtain, in 1849, a precision measurement of the velocity of light, Foucault pre-empted him in announcing, on 30 April 1850, that light travels faster in air than in water, a decisive argument in favour of the wave theory of light, which by the mid-nineteenth century had become generally accepted. In his thesis Foucault gives a detailed account of his experiment, illustrating his apparatus; it was not until 1862 that he was able to determine a numerical value for the speed of light, of about 298,000 kilometers per second, a figure significantly smaller, and more accurate, than Fizeau's.

London: Bradbury Evans, 1853. First edition of this Dickens' classic. Octavo, bound in three quarters morocco with gilt titles and tooling to the spine, marbled endpapers, all edges marbled, engraved title page and 39 engraved plates by H.K. Browne including tissue-guarded frontispiece. In very good condition. Ownership signature to the verso of the front free endpaper. "In Bleak House for the first time [society] is seen as an absurdity, an irrelevance, almost a madness. A dark force from which the real people must escape in order to create another society of their own [Dickens] had been preparing for this novel all his life and, despite the calamities which had helped to provoke it in the first place, was even happy while he was writing it It might even be said that Bleak House cured the very malaise which was responsible for its composition" (Ackroyd, 649-50). "The Dickens cosmos, his phantasmagoric London and visionary England, emerges in Bleak House with a clarity and pungency that surpasses the rest of his work, before and after" (Bloom, 311).

CONNEAU, Théophilus and Brantz Mayer (Canot)
1853. Unbound. Near Fine. The complete original manuscript, titled: "A Slaver's Log Book or 15 Years Residence in Africa," consisting of approximately 589 hand numbered pages, and 18 additional inserted pages, written entirely in the legible hand of Conneau, with scattered ink emendations by Brantz Mayer, who first published an expurgated version of the manuscript in 1854. Accompanying the manuscript are 18 letters from Conneau to Mayer from 1853-54, and 11 other related letters from 1854 (including testimonials from leaders of the Maryland Colonization Society); together with miscellaneous manuscript notes, ephemera, and contemporary articles and reviews. A complete descriptive list of this material is available. The manuscript and accompanying archival materials are housed together in a large custom-made clamshell box. When Conneau's manuscript was discovered in the back room of the Washington, DC bookstore Loudermilk's, and later published in an unexpurgated edition in 1976, *The New York Times* described it as "One of the most informative, as well as one of the most fascinating documents illustrative of the final decades of the African slave trade." Historians of the African slave trade had long puzzled over the source of Brantz Mayer's 1854 book, *Captain Canot; Or Twenty Years of an African Slaver* which, according to the title page, was "written out and edited from the Captain's Journals, Memoranda and Conversations." Thus after nearly 125 years the slave trader with whom Mayer had collaborated was positively identified as Captain Théophilus Conneau. Mayer … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHAMBERS, Robert]
London: John Churchill, 1853. Tenth edition, but the first with illustrations. 8vo. xii, 325, (1), (ii), lxvii, (i), (30) pp. Publisher's light brown blindstamped cloth, gilt lettered to the spine, contemporary ownership inscription to title. 107 illustrations in the text. Rebacked preserving most of the original spine which is somewhat darkened, a few marks to the boards, very good in all other regard. First published in 1844, Chambers drew "upon his scientific reading, his interest in geology, and phrenological philosophy [in proposing] that the universe had not been created in a single act by God, who then controlled all successive creative processes in the universe". (ODNB) The work was published anonymously for fear of the controversy that it inevitably stirred up and was challenged by scientists and churchmen alike, epitomised by the scathing 85 page review of the book published in the Edinburgh Review by the feted geologist Adam Sedgwick. Despite inherent weaknesses in Chambers' hypotheses, the work inspired scientists as august as Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, as although Chambers argued that the natural world was governed by laws designed by God he also admitted the evolutionary development of species. The opprobrium heaped upon the author from all sides justified Chambers' decision to publish the work anonymously. Several revised editions appeared between 1844 and 1851, taking on board some of the scientific criticisms, and also his defence, "Explanations: A Sequel", in 1845. This was the first edition to feature illustrations and also a still anonymou … [Click Below for Full Description]

PHILLIPS, John
York: Published for the Author, St. Mary's Lodge, 1853.. Map dimensions 57 x 76 cm, overall dimensions 60 x 78.5 cm. Folding map coloured according to the geology of the county, dissected into twenty-one sections and mounted on linen, folds into early plain green cloth boards with a later paper manuscript label to one side. Slightly tender along some of the folds with some inconspicuous tissue reinforcements, a decent example overall. John Phillips (1800-1874) was the nephew of the esteemed geological mapmaker William Smith. He spent the early part of his career in Yorkshire and published two works on the geology of the county: "Illustrations of the Geology of Yorkshire" (published in two parts between 1829 and 1836) and "The Rivers, Mountains and Sea Coast of Yorkshire" (also published 1853). He eventually succeeded to the position of reader of Geology at Oxford in 1856 and was a Wollaston Medal winner in 1845. The map was chromolithographically printed by W. Monkhouse of York for Phillips.

99374 GOBINEAU (Joseph Arthur, Comte de). Essai sur l'Inégalité des Races Humai 1853 GOBINEAU (Joseph Arthur, Comte de). Essai sur l'Inégalité des Races Humaines. Paris, Librairiei de Firmin Didot Frères, 1853-1855. 4 volumes in-8. 2ff. XI. 492pp. 1f. + 2ff. 509pp. 2ff. + 2ff. 423pp. + 2ff. 359pp. Demi-veau, dos lisse orné (Reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale très rare, tirée à 500 exemplaires aux frais de l'auteur. Né en 1816, Joseph Arthur de Gobineau entra dans la carrière diplomatique grâce à la protection de Tocqueville. C'est pendant son séjour à Berne comme secrétaire de légation qu'il composa et fit imprimer à ses frais ce livre célèbre et controversé."Le titre malheureux fondera plus tard la légende absurde et 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 : (...) loin d'être perfectible à l'infini l'humanité s'enfonce dans le marécage fatal de l'égalité dans l'abjection. 'L'Essai sur l'inégalité des races humaines', vision romantique, est une épopée du désespoir... (qui fait) de lui un des égotistes français les plus étranges dans son arrogante singularité" (En Français dans le Texte).Traces de mouillures claires au premier tome, tache brune dans la marge des derniers feuillets du tome second, quelques rousseurs éparses. Assez bon exemplaire toutefois, dans sa reliure de l'époque. En Français dans le Texte, 271. Printing and the Mind of Man, 335.

Clement C. Moore
This listing is for an early printing of "A Visit From St. Nicholas," dated 1853. The poem is credited to "Clement C. Moore, LL.D., of New York." It is prefaced by a discussion of Pennsylvania's "Krishkinkle" of German origin and New York's "Santa Claus" of Dutch tradition. At this point, Santa Claus is still a New York personage, and not widely known throughout the United States. The book itself is potpourri of information concerning science, art, and collecting--interesting viewpoints from the mid-1800s. It measures approximately 7 x 8 inches and has 678 pages. Construction is hardcover, 1/2 leather over marbled paper litho with page edging showing a similar marbled design. At 166 years old, it is in very good condition overall. There is wear to the leather and litho, but still very presentable. Pages are clean with light binding. There is an attractive bookplate on the inside front cover and a small ink stamp on the title page. "A Visit From St. Nicholas" is found on page 615. Overall a handsome and rare book, especially in this condition. Shipped Priority/Insured. Thanks for looking! Please CLICK HERE for more vintage Christmas books. [Attributes: First Edition]

Loewe, Carl, Kantor, Organist und Komponist (1796-1869).
Stettin, 13. XII. 1853. 2 SS. 4to. An eine namentlich nicht genannte "gräfliche Gnaden", die als Komponistin dilettieren dürfte: "Ihro Gräfliche Gnaden haben mir mit Ihrem sehr geehrten Schreiben vom 1ten December h[oc] a[nno] eine größere Freude gemacht, als Sie Selbst denken können. Ich hätte Ursache, mir etwas darauf einzubilden, wenn Sie das Lied 'Der Thautropfen' so werth machten, als Sie die Gnade haben, mir zu schreiben. Besonders, wenn ich das geistreich verfaßte Lied Ihrer Feder 'Die Müllerin' erwäge. Das Lob einer solchen Kennerin will freilich viel sagen, und ich habe Ursache, die Tugend der Demuth zu üben. Für die alten Kirchengesänge danke ich Ihnen von Herzen. Das zweite 'Ave Maria' scheint mir bedeutend und in der Kirchentonart gehalten, während das erste sowohl rhythmisch als auch tonartlich verworren, oder auch corrumpirt zu sein scheint, und die Gemeinde, die es singt, eine Art von Tonsinn zu Tage fördert, der mir sonderbar, fast unerklärlich vorkommt. Desto süßer tönt 'Das Glöcklein'. Wie einfach, wahr und schwärmerisch läutet das kleine, feine Fingerchen über der weißen Rose der Melodie! [.]". - Etwas knittrig.
