[Diary] [Women's Social History]
[Massachusetts]: 1842-1853. Measuring 6.25 x 7.5" and comprised of 79 handwritten pages in ink and pencil. Kept by an anonymous woman, the present diary contains a range of material with great research potential, providing insight into the intersection of religion and politics, philanthropy and literature, and the entrepreneurship of women. In this densely packed diary compiled over a decade, a Massachusetts woman records details about her daily life. The range of business she conducts, events she attends, and books she reads can give researchers a fascinating and valuable look into how women were engaging the world at a time when they were gaining access to education and working their way toward the vote. Our present diary writer appears to run a boarding house, as several pages toward the front and rear document the names of guests lodging and what they have paid; every so often, she also jots down sums to keep track of her money. We learn right away that she is highly involved in the religious community. Throughout the book are notes on sermons and lectures attended, the pastors who spoke, their topics, and her own reflections on what moved her or what seems to be good advice for maintaining a healthy relationship with God. Yet she is not solely concerned with spirituality. Temperance meetings, Sewing Circle meetings, and reading lists are also included throughout as she documents her schedule and keeps track of books she has completed -- among them A History of the Reformation and Uncle Tom's Cabin. Occasionally she provides lengthy diary entries where she discusses how … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charlotte Brontë
London: Smith Elder & Co, 1853. Please see full description and photos for details on these beautiful rare volumes. Published by Smith, Elder & Co., London; 1853. 8vo. 3 vols. First Edition. Condition: Very Good+ A very rare and handsome set of what many consider to be Charlotte Bronte's finest novel, surpassing even 'Jane Eyre'. The binding is in very smart condition, with just some general rubbing and scuffing. There is some fading to the spine, although it remains attractive. In all, the wear is minor and in no way detracts from this smart set. Inside, there is a neat ownership inscription to the ffep. The pages are clean and bright with only some minor toning and age spotting. Lacks the half-title and adverts at end. This novel was perhaps the most autobiographical of all Charlotte Bronte's works, written using her experiences in Brussels as its basis. It is believed she portrayed her real and imagined relationship with her mentor in Brussels, the married Professor M. Heger, through the characters of John Bretton and M. Paul Emmanuel. In all, this is an extremely smart and collectible set of this very rare first edition by one of the literary greats. These volumes would be sure to compliment any literary set they grace.

«L'araignée que vous me communiquez est le Selenocosmia javanensis Walck, genre démembré des mygales de Walck. Je ne connais absolument rien de ses moeurs. Dans l'état pitoyable où elle est, cette araignée ne peut être préparée [...]». Il évoque les envois du naturaliste et erpétologiste Victor Collin de Plancy (1853/1922) qui voyage en Chine. «M. Collin de Plancy a envoyé tout récemment deux grandes caisses d'objets d'histoire naturelle contenant surtout des oiseaux et des reptiles ; deux flacons d'arachnides qui m'étaient destinés ne renfermaient que peu d'espèces et plusieurs individus du Bultus confucios ; il faut croire qu'il n'y a qu'une seule espèce de scorpion à Pélin. Je vous remercie à l'avance pour les arachnides du Sénégal ; je ne possède presque rien de cette région [...]». . Date : 07/04/1880. Lieu : Paris. Format : In-12. Etat : très bon.

Joseph-Marie-Élisabeth Durocher (1817-1860) Géologue, minéralogiste, ingénieur en chef des Ponts et Chaussées, universitaire et explorateurfrançais
Manuscrit autographe de Joseph Durocher, intituléObservations sur le gisement et lorigine des eaux sulfureuses pyrénéennes. Ratures et corrections. "Parmi les eaux thermo-minérales, les sources sulfureuses des Pyrénées tiennent le premier rang par la spécialité de leurs caractères: ce sont elles aussi dont il semble le plus difficile dexpliquer lorigine et déjà on a proposé plusieurs hypothèses pour en rendre compte. M. le Dr Gontan me paraît avoir établi une distinction judicieuse entre les eaux sulfureuses accidentelles, comme celles de la Belgique ou de lAllemagne et les eaux sulfureuses naturelles, comme celles des Pyrénées qui en différent par des caractères importants [...]. Cependant les eaux sulfureuses Pyrénéennes constituent une véritable formation géologique et si on compare les de leur gisement avec ceux dautres formations de la même contrée, on est conduit à une explication très simple, tout a fait en rapport avec les faits, et qui me paraît rendre raison de leurs caractères physiques et chimiques. Dans un précédent mémoire sur les Pyrénées (1) jai montré que les eaux sulfureuses de cette chaine se trouvent, presque sans exception inhérentes à la zone de séparation du granite et des terrains de transition. Ce sont donc de véritables gites de contact, dans lacception la plus rigoureuse de ce terme; ce sont des gîtes comparables par leur position aux principaux dépôts métalliques des Pyrénées, que jai montré comme lavait déjà fait M. Dufrénoy pour les minerais de fer, être également des gites de contact. [...]". Cet article avait paru en 1853, dans le Bulleti … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 raised ribs on spine and marble design on page edges. At 166 years old, it is in very good condition overall. There is wear to the leather and litho, but still attractive. Pages are clean with tight 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!

Mention is made of the concern by the Feudal Lords that this was the beginning of a much larger attack by a foreign power. Details of the ships are given including size, one mentioned at 45 Ken, as well as numbers of masts and cannons etc. Distances in Japanese ri, are given to such places as Ryukyu (Okinawa); Chosen (Korea); the Netherlands, Nanjing, England and America.

MARGUERITE D ANGOULEME, REINE de NAVARRE
París: Société des Bibliophiles François, 1853. A compilation of French news from the 16th century, inspired by Boccaccio's Decameron. Leroux de Lurcy was in charge of completing the unfinished work of Marguerited'Angouleme and to rename it as we know it today, for in the beginning it had only sixty seven texts. The great discovery of Marguerite de Navarre (even if not responsible for the title) was to take the idea of the stage of the Decameron and to make, in the French domain, a canonical model of anecdotal staging. The starting point of the collection is detailed in the foreword, which tells how ten people agree to see each other over ten days to count each other a story, their objective being to group one hundred stories of their experiences. Compared to the Decameron, the Heptameron presents more variety in topics and in the narrative approach to news. In addition, Marguerite d'Angouleme seeks to convey a moral reflection, after each story there is a discussion among the gathered characters, who comment on the subject, its scope and its value. Marguerite d'Angouleme also known as Margarita de Francia, Margarita de Navarra or Marguerite d'Orleans. She was born in Angoulême (France) in 1492 and died in Odos (Hautes-Pyrénées) in 1549. A very advanced noble woman at the time, she carried out numerous works as a writer and as a humanist. The only literate woman of the XVI thcentury to compile a wide selection of poems, prayers, religious meditations, songs or biblical and secular works. In addition, she was the first woman to promote the study and the publication in French … [Click Below for Full Description]
