[English Churchman and St.James Chronicle].
Original First Edition. London, Published at the Office, No.159, Fleet Street, 1858. Folio. 1252 pages. Hardcover / Original Harlf Leather with gilt lettering on spine and paper-covered-boards. The binding slightly rubbed and stained. Spine slightly splitting. Some paint stains to the spine but overall very good. The interior in excellent and clean condition ! Very Rare Newspaper with all the original advertising ! The English Churchman is a family Protestant newspaper that was founded in 1843. The first edition was published on January 5th 1843. The formal title of the newspaper is English Churchman and St James' Chronicle. St James Chronicle dates from 1761. The paper has a reputation for being outspokenly and unashamedly Protestant, Evangelical, Reformed and anti-ecumenical, believing that the Thirty-Nine Articles of the Church of England are good and true and so it does not recognise non-evangelical Churches as being truly Christian because they have erred in doctrine and practice. Ironically, and contrary to general ecclesiastical trends, the English Churchman began life as an Anglo-Catholic newspaper but it was soon taken into evangelical hands where it has remained ever since. While the doctrinal basis of the English Churchman is the 39 Articles of Religion, the newspaper is not an organ of the Church of England. The current editor is a minister in the Church of England (Continuing) which also holds to the old Evangelical and Reformed Anglican position as won by the Protestant Reformation. At the time of the death of Pope John Paul II the English Churchman was one of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Green, Jonathan H.
Philadelphia: T.B. Peterson and Brothers, 1858. 259pp. plus 17(i.e., 19),[9]pp. of advertisements and advertisements on front and rear endpapers. Frontis. Publisher's blindstamped and gilt pictorial red cloth, spine gilt. Cloth a bit soiled, corners bumped, foredge of rear board scuffed, spine ends chipped. Frontispiece and titlepage browned, otherwise minimal foxing. About very good. Jonathan H. Green was one of most successful gamblers in the country until 1842, when he resolved to reform himself, stop gambling, destroy his "gambling implements," and devote himself to ending gaming and gambling throughout the United States. From then, he became the most important figure in the early literature of American gambling, publishing many works, like this one, in which he explains his path out of vice to virtue, and the subsequent work he did to combat gambling and expose crime, cheating, and vice. Intentionally or not, his writing on cheating and tricks is quite detailed and proved popular among active gamblers as well. In fact, the titlepage of the present work explains that it contains "a complete and full exposition" of a number of games, including "thimbles," "diamond cut diamond," "the post office game," "grab loo," and others. Green also wrote several reports on gaming as an agent of the New York Association for the Suppression of Gambling. He led investigations and toured regularly as a speaker. Despite his contemporary popularity, his works are now relatively uncommon. JESSEL 667.

He is also remembered for inventing Sims' speculum, Sims' sigmoid catheter, and the Sims' position. However, one would be hard pressed to find a more controversial figure in the history of medicine. [4] Sims perfected his surgical techniques by operating without anesthesia on enslaved black women.[3][4] In the 20th century, this was condemned as an improper use of human experimental subjects and Sims was described as a prime example of progress in the medical profession made at the expense of a vulnerable population .[3] But Sims' medical ethics have also been defended by modern commentators. For instance, physician and anthropologist L. Lewis Wall, founder of the Worldwide Fistula Fund, has argued that Sims conformed to the accepted medical practices of the time and that his operations on slave women provided effective relief from a previously untreatable condition catastrophic to their health and quality of life.[5] So far as we know, the subjects were willing; … [Click Below for Full Description]

Her earliest work was in genres that could be quickly written and sold...consolidating Dinah Mulock's reputation as a popular writer who delineated complex emotional states with unusual power and understanding...In A Woman's Thoughts About Women, Dinah Mulock provided emotional support and confident advice for single women like herself. Strongly criticizing learned helplessness, she promoted self-sufficiency and cross-class sympathy. Yet she also acknowledged the pain and loneliness of single women's lives" (ODNB).

MOSCHELES, Ignaz 1794-1870
1858. 1 leaf (260 x 224 mm.). 23 measures on 8 staves printed in 4 systems. Notated in black ink on one side of the leaf only. Inscribed "Le Mexique à [?]Leipsic" and "à Madame Pauline Viardot Garcia" at upper left; dated "16 Decembre 1858" at lower left; and signed "Souvenir amical I. Moscheles" at lower right. Provenance From the collection of noted singer Pauline Viardot (1821-1920), with small circular embossed stamp "Collection Viardot" to upper right margin. Slightly worn and creased, especially at upper edge; a few small, light stains, not affecting music. Apparently unrecorded. A Bohemian pianist and composer of Jewish descent, Moscheles was one of Vienna's most popular pianists, "hailed as an equal and friend by Clementi and J.B. Cramer." He met the 15-year-old Mendelssohn in 1824 in Berlin and "gave him some finishing lessons on the piano." He went on to became principal professor of piano at the Leipzig Conservatory in 1846, recently founded by Mendelssohn. Known also as a conductor, Moscheles led the first London performance of Beethoven's Missa solemnis in 1832 and very successful performances of the Ninth Symphony in 1837 and 1838. "The majority of Moscheles's compositional output is piano music; some, including the sonatas, is of lasting consequence. Schumann considered Moscheles one of the best sonata composers of his generation. His piano method is best represented in his sets of studies, which are still used: Schumann saw these as bridging the gap between the age of Clementi and that of Chopin and being indebted to Bach's Clavier-Übung."

Believe me, it was painful to have to refuse your request, and it is painful now to say that I simply can not take a whole day off at that time to come even for the purpose you indicate. I wish you could be just one week here and see the multitude of requests to speak or to preside at meetings, or to be present without speaking, which I receive, to which I must return the same answer. I do not mean that they are requests that I would not care to accept, but requests each one of which, if it stood entirely by himself, I would be glad to accept. If you and any others whom you choose to indicate can bring on the French Delegate and other foreign guests, if there are any who are similarly entitled to recognition, I would be very glad to have the whole party take lunch with me; but I can not go to Philadelphia or anywhere else at that time."

KÖHLER, Louis 1820-1886
1858. We have been unable to locate a published edition of this work.German musician Louis Köhler settled in Königsberg in 1845 where he had a varied and successful career as a pianist, composer, writer, and pedagogue. He became known as a leading writer on music through his contributions to a number of leading publications, including the Hartungsche Zeitung, Signale, and Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, and his first book, Die Melodie der Sprache (1853)."Köhler remained influential throughout his career in the area of piano pedagogy: he published collections of graded instructional pieces and books of exercises, published new editions of the works of Classical and Romantic composers, wrote widely disseminated books (under Liszt's influence) about piano pedagogy (most notably the Systematische Lehrmethode of 1857-8), and taught a great number of pupils, some of whom became prominent musicians, including Adolf Jensen and Hermann Goetz." James Deaville in Grove Music Online. Carl Gurckhaus (1821-1884) assumed leadership of the music publishing firm of Kistner in Leipzig, a major publisher of Schumann, Liszt, and Joachim, among others, following the death of Karl Friedrich Kistner in 1845; going on to purchase the business in 1866. He was a noted collector of musical autographs.An attractive and scarce example.. 1 page (265 x 205 mm). Carefully notated in dark brown ink on pre-printed 8-stave paper with "Aus dem Album von Carl Gurckhaus" printed at foot within decorative blue border with floral motif. 42 measures for piano marked "à la mazurka" at hea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dessin et poème autographe signé à sa muse - Librairie Le Pas Sage Livres Rares, ŒUVRES Choisies Librairie Charles Combe Album de dessins inédits : Ces demoiselles font leurs dents ALBUM INÉDIT COMPOSÉ DE 12 DESSINS ORIGINAUX LÉGENDÉS ET D'UNE MORALE. Notes Description ALBUM INÉDIT COMPOSÉ DE 12 DESSINS ORIGINAUX LÉGENDÉS ET D'UNE MORALE. Recueil satirique, un brin misogyne, traitant des humeurs féminines en pleine rage de dents. Il s'ouvre sur une page de titre entièrement dessinée, signée, daté janvier 1858 et porte cette dédicace autographe : "à Mr & Mme A. Péduvan". Suivent onze dessins à la plume légendés, racontant les mésaventures d'une bonne, prise d'une rage de dents, ne supportant rien et faisant des réflexions hystériques ; elle finira en cage au "noyau d'un jardin zoologie" dans le "quartier des animaux féroces" avec cet écriteau: "n'agacez pas S.V.P.". L'album se conclut par cette moralité : "Garez-vous du mal aux dents, si vous êtes femme, cuisinière et inutile, sinon garez-vos du tout et des voyages d'agrément." Né à Dieulefit en 1828, Charles Combe part étudier le droit à Paris 1851, afin de reprendre l'étude notariale familiale. Délaissant ses études, il fréquente assidûment les musées, les ateliers d'art, les cafés du Quartier Latin et publie en 1855 quelques dessins dans les Albums pour rire. De retour à Dieulefit, il se rapproche de l'écrivain et éditeur provençal Joseph Roumanille dont il illustre, en 1868, Lou Mege de Cucugnan et Lou Colera édité par Albert Lacroix, Verboekhoven et Cie et traduit en partie par Alphonse Daudet.

ROPER, Edward
Ararat, Victoria, 1858. Some expert restoration to margins and professionally cleaned.. Watercolour, 310 x 510 mm, heightened with white, signed and dated lower left "E. Roper 1858" A large and detailed watercolour showing Ararat at the height of the gold rush: Roper's view captures the bustle and industry, while emphasizing the smaller vignette, as for example his thoughtful positioning of an Aboriginal group draped in what appear to be government-issue blankets in the centre-ground. Roper achieved what few of his contemporaries managed, to capture a real impression of what it must have been like to first come across a gold strike at the height of the wild initial fervour. This superb Australian Goldfields scene is the original "on the spot" painting on which Roper based a large oil painting later in his career in London. That later work, presented to the State Library of New South Wales in 1929 by Sir William Dixson, has since become one of the most famous depictions of life on the goldfields. It seems that all of Roper's oils date from the 1880s or later (DAAO), after his return to England in 1873, which makes the present work painted on the spot some thirty years earlier an important link in understanding his process of artistic updating and revision. The present work is signed and dated "1858" at lower left, the time of Roper's first visit to Australia. The picture has added significance because it is now revealed to have a series of substantial pencil notes by Roper on the back which provide details including the naming of specific individuals, and revealing that … [Click Below for Full Description]

Farringdon Street : London 9" by 5.5" vi, [3], 2-629pp SUMMARY The first edition thus of this important source regarding the Crimean War. Rebound, in a lovely red calf binding, this title is formed of the collected letters to the Times by its noted correspondent, W H Russell. Fine Binding,First Edition,Folding Maps,Illustrated Overall Condition: Very Good Indeed This book weighs 1.5 KG when packed UK Postage: £ 3.99 US Postage: £ 23.99 EU Postage: £ 18.99 European Postage: £ 19.99 Asia Postage: £ 31.99 Worldwide Postage: £ 32.99 DESCRIPTION The first edition of this largely expanded work under this title. In 1856 a work with mostly the same content, though decidedly smaller was published under the title 'The War' in 1856. William Howard Russell is regarded as one of the first modern war correspondents. This work is formed of his dispatches via telegraph during the war and is therefore a fascinating first-hand account. Russell spent twenty-two months covering the Crimean War and therefore this work covers key events such as the Siege of Sevastopol and the Charge of the Light Brigade. This volume covers the period from March 6 1854 to June 29 1856. Russell's writings for the Times were the first time that the British public could read about the reality of warfare. It was his articles that lead to the Government re-assessing the treatment of troops and therefore Florence Nightingale's revolutionary b … [Click Below for Full Description]
