        The History of New Bedford Bristol County, Massachusetts

      Self Published 1858 - Daniel Ricketson was a Massachusetts contemporary and friend of Henry Thoreau. He sought refuge from the exacerbations of modern life in his own shanty dwelling (albeit not far from a nice main house) before Thoreau did. A Quaker, anti-slavery advocate, writer, and philanthropist, Ricketson sought out famous men of letters particularly within the Transcendental circles of Concord. More notable men rose to greater prominence – Thoreau and Emerson being the cream – but Ricketson hitched his wagon to them. ********* Original publisher’s binding with minor spots of rubbing on the covers (one moderate sized spot on rear cover), small damp stain on bottom corner of text through first third, occasional pages with minor foxing/browning else a really nice near fine copy with bright gilt. Affectionately presented to his cousins - signed and dated a year after publication.******* You’ll have difficulty finding a better copy of this book, let alone one with this provenance. The only other signed copy I’ve seen is housed in New Bedford’s Whaling Museum. The book is the first published history of the Old Dartmouth region on the south coast of Massachusetts – an area renowned for its vital whaling industry. ********** This is an important book, scarce presentation, and an opportunity to access a bit of Thoreau magic dust at a fraction of the standard going rate. ************ While Ricketson possessed many admirable qualities, contemporary accounts suggest other traits – “hypochondria and emotional instability” for starters - that would seemingly be at odds with the “stoical and intellectual” Thoreau. Don Mortland deconstructs their odd couple friendship in his 1985 work, Thoreau’s Friend Ricketson: What Manner of Man? An excerpt recounting their first meeting: “On a cold Christmas Day in 1854 Daniel Ricketson, independently wealthy New Bedford Quaker, was shoveling snow when he observed approaching his house a man who he first took to be a pedlar. The man was Henry Thoreau. Ricketson has expected him earlier, and he has expected a somewhat different appearing man. The man he had invited, the who wrote Walden, which Ricketson has purchased the day after publication, he had imagined as a hardier, more muscular and robust man, not the slightly stooped, short, even somewhat homely person who said, “You don’t know me.” Ricketson at first didn’t know him, but in the seven and one half years which Thoreau had yet to live the two men would get to know each other quite well. In fact, Ricketson would become, along with H.G.O. Blake, one of Thoreau’s chief correspondents. Thoreau wrote twenty-seven to Ricketson and the latter wrote Thoreau forty four times. Thoreau would visit Ricketson six times in New Bedford (a 70 miles distance from Concord), while the latter would pay eight calls on Thoreau in Concord.” (Mortland) ********** On a personal aside, Ricketson also made some poignant sketches of Thoreau during Henry’s visits to him - which are now housed in museums. They are aching first hand accounts of the American icon on excursion, and convey the level of affection Ricketson held for his friend.**** I have additional information on Ricketson that won't fit on Abebooks if you are interested!

      Belfast, 1852-1858. - An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - Andrews „besuchte die Belfast Academy und das Academical Institution. 1828 studierte er an der Universität Glasgow unter Professor Thomas Thomson Chemie. 1830 studierte er mit Pasteur bei Jean-Baptiste Dumas in Paris und 1831 zog er auf das Trinity College in Dublin und erwarb dort eine Auszeichnung in den klassischen Wissenschaften sowie in den klassischen Altertumswissenschaften. Er promovierte 1835 an der Universität Edinburgh als Doktor der Medizin und schloss eine medizinische Praxis erfolgreich ab. Er wurde praktischer Arzt in Belfast sowie Professor für Chemie an der neugegründeten Hochschule für Medizin der Academical Institution in Belfast. Seit 1839 war er Mitglied der Royal Irish Academy. 1845 war Andrews Vizepräsident sowie Professor für Chemie am Queens' College in Belfast. Er lieferte bedeutende Arbeiten zur Wärmeentwicklung bei chemischen Prozessen, zum Verbrennungsprozess und über das Ozon. Er leistete Arbeiten zur Gasverflüssigung (besonders Kohlendioxid), zur elektrischen Leitfähigkeit heißer Gase und auf dem Gebiet der Galvanisierung. 1861 entdeckte Andrews, dass sich Gase oberhalb einer bestimmten Temperatur nicht mehr durch Druck in flüssige Form überführen lassen. 1863 schloss er erstmals auf die Existenz einer kritischen Temperatur und bestimmte Oxidations- und Neutralisationswärmen. Er interpretierte Ozon als Modifikation des Sauerstoffs. Nach ihm ist das Andrews-Diagramm zur Darstellung der thermischen Zustandsgleichung von Gasen benannt" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Einige Knickspuren. - Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Gibraltar; Ozean (nebst Angabe der Position des Schiffes) bzw. Straße von Malakka, 22. V. 1857, 5. VII. 1857 u. 30. III. o. J. (wohl 1858). - [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Ausserordentlich bedeutende, umfang- und inhaltsreiche Briefe von der Novara-Expedition. - „[.] Er hatte Bekanntschaft mit dem Bruder des Kaisers, Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian, gemacht, der seine Arbeit schätzte und auch förderte. Dieser Verbindung verdankte er seine Teilnahme an der maßgeblich vom Erzherzog vorangetriebenen Novara-Expedition, einer wissenschaftlichen Weltumsegelung. Unter der Leitung von Kommodore Bernhard von Wüllerstorf-Urbair nahm Selleny an der Novara-Expedition teil, die von 30. April 1857 bis 26. August 1859 dauerte; sie begann und endete in Triest. Sellenys Arbeit trug dabei ganz wesentlich zum großen Erfolg dieses Unternehmens bei: Er malte etwa 2000 Aquarelle, Skizzen, Studien und Entwürfe über die Eindrücke in den einzelnen Stationen und Ländern, die von der Fregatte SMS Novara besucht wurden, und ersetzte gleichsam den Fotografen. Seine eindrucksvollen und lebendigen Bilder bildeten später die Vorlagen für zahlreiche Lithografien für die Illustrationen der Werke zu dieser Reise und wurden in Zeitungen und Magazinen abgebildet. Seine authentischen Bilder wurden über die außerordentlich erfolgreichen Publikationen zur Novara-Reise einer großen Öffentlichkeit zugänglich. Auch der weitaus größte Teil der 224 Abbildungen im besonders erfolgreichen Buch von Karl von Scherzer basiert auf den Zeichnungen von Selleny. Nach der deutschen Ausgabe erschien in London kurz darauf eine englische Übersetzung (1862), eine weitere dann in italienischer Sprache. Besonders erfolgreich war eine später in zwei Bänden erschienene Ausgabe („Volksausgabe") dieses frühen Bestsellers, der die Interessen des aufstrebenden Bildungsbürgertums der damaligen Zeit genau traf. Das Buch erreichte insgesamt eine Auflage von 30.000 Stück. Laut der österreichischen Historikerin Renate Basch-Ritter war das Buch das zweiterfolgreichste Werk dieser Art im 19. Jahrhundert, nicht nur in Österreich, sondern im gesamten deutschen Sprachraum (nur Humboldts vielbändiges Werk ‚Kosmos - Entwurf einer physischen Weltbeschreibung‘ war noch erfolgreicher). Nach der Novara-Expedition begleitete Selleny Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian auf dessen Reisen nach und durch Nordafrika, auf die Kapverdischen und Kanarischen Inseln sowie nach Brasilien [.]" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz.

        NICARAGUA INTEROCEANIC CANAL – BOOK WITH LARGE MAP: CARTE D'ÉTUDE POUR LE TRACÉ ET LE PROFIL DU CANAL DE NICARAGUA PAR THOMÉ DE GAMOND, INGÉNIEUR CIVIL, PRÉCÉDÉE DE DOCUMENTS PUBLIÉES SUR CETTE QUESTION PAR M. FÉLIX BELLY.

      4° (28 x 23 cm / 11 x 9 inches): Collation Complete: 90 pp., 1 f., plus 1 large folding chromolithographed map mounted upon original linen (71 x 96 cm / 28 x 38 inches), all bound in original boards with pastedown title and advertisements, spine in original green cloth with gilt title (Very Good, Map generally bright and clean, staining in the folds and in the linen; some text pages with light foxing; last page with small tears in the gutter; covers with some shelf-ware, overall an attractive example). - Paris: Chez Dalmont & Dunod, 1858. Rare – the first serious and detailed published proposal for an interoceanic canal across Nicaragua, compiled by the French journalist and speculator Félix Belly, with a large, magnificent, chromolithographed map by the engineer Thomé de Gamond. - This fascinating and historically important work is the first serious, detailed published proposal to build a transoceanic canal across Nicaragua, illustrated by a large and magnificent original map. The dream to build a navigable route across the isthmus of Central America, so connecting the Atlantic with the Pacific oceans, is almost as old as the European presence in the Americas itself. While the Panama Canal was completed in 1914, and that no version of the Nicaragua Canal was ever built, it will surprise some to learn that during much of the second half of the 19th Century, Nicaragua was considered to be a far more promising location for an interoceanic route than Panama. While many proposals had been explored, from the 16th Century onwards, it was only in the late 1850s, when the French duo of Félix Belly, an impresario and journalist, and Thomé de Gamond, an eccentric, but brilliant, engineer, that the first technically credible proposal to construct the canal was published. While Belly and Gamond’s grand design, as showcased here, ended shambolically, it inspired the next two generations of canal speculators to keep trying to realize the dream in Nicaragua, even if the interoceanic canal eventually came to be in Panama. It is also important to note that the notion of a Nicaragua canal has seen been revived, as in 2013, a Chinese consortium was given official approval from the Nicaraguan government to construct a canal across the country, in an effort to rival the overburdened Panama Canal. While the Chinese enterprise’s plan seems credible on paper, and is technically feasible, it is not yet clear if it will ever be realized, as the financial requirements are awesome. Félix Belly’s Nicaraguan Fiasco - Félix Belly (1816-86) was an excellent writer and charismatic journalist, but was also a terrible project manger and even worse judge of character. He was the first person to make the prospect of a transoceanic canal across Nicaragua seem like a serious possibility; however, his dream was undone by a combination of bad luck and his own personal flaws. Belly’s early career shone in dazzling rays of light, as he was one of France’s premier political and diplomatic journalists. He resided for some years in Istanbul, where his reports on the Sublime Porte were held as gospel by the French government and intelligentsia. His infectious enthusiasm for all matters of academia and global events saw him fêted in European capitals, no less in Berlin by the era’s greatest explorer, Alexander von Humboldt. In 1856, Belly became psychologically obsessed with the idea of building an interoceanic canal in Central America, and was determined to go to Nicaragua to set-up the mega-project. It was at this point, that his brilliant career and charmed life went off-track. In the excessively exuberant environment of the early Second Empire, he found it easy to find converts to his dream and to raise capital. Moreover, the Emperor Napoleon III was a known enthusiast of such a scheme, and Bally could be assured of his moral, if not financial, support. While his exact role remains unknown, it seems that in 1857 the emperor made Belly an official envoy of the French government in Central America, lending him much-needed legitimacy in the eyes of foreign potentiates. Belly formed an official company and managed to convince the banker Moses Millaud of Crédit Mobilier to back his venture, forwarding him seed money for an exploratory expedition to Nicaragua.

        The History of New Bedford Bristol County, Massachusetts

      New Bedford: Self Published, 1858 Daniel Ricketson was a Massachusetts contemporary and friend of Henry Thoreau. He sought refuge from the exacerbations of modern life in his own shanty dwelling (albeit not far from a nice main house) before Thoreau did. A Quaker, anti-slavery advocate, writer, and philanthropist, Ricketson sought out famous men of letters particularly within the Transcendental circles of Concord. More notable men rose to greater prominence - Thoreau and Emerson being the cream - but Ricketson hitched his wagon to them. Original publisher's binding with minor spots of rubbing on the covers (one moderate sized spot on rear cover), small damp stain on bottom corner of text through first third, occasional pages with minor foxing/browning else a really nice near fine copy with bright gilt. Affectionately presented to his cousins - signed and dated a year after publication.You'll have difficulty finding a better copy of this book, let alone one with this provenance. The only other signed copy I've seen is housed in New Bedford's Whaling Museum. The book is the first published history of the Old Dartmouth region on the south coast of Massachusetts - an area renowned for its vital whaling industry."There are three major factors that raise The History of New Bedford from mere reminiscences and chronicles to a compendium of the earliest community of separatists and pilgrims who found their peace neither in Plymouth Colony nor Massachusetts Bay Colony, which adjoined Plymouth Colony early on.The first was Ricketson's deep affection of homeland. He was born in New Bedford in 1813, and died there in 1898, not far from his childhood home. The earliest of his colonial line was William Ricketson, (d. 1691), who, together with his wife were proprietors of the Colony. Later his Grandfather, Captain Daniel Ricketson (1744-1824), married into the prospering Russell family and continued the line with Joseph (1771-1841), who sired Daniel in 1813. Deep roots bred the deep affections for the people he memorialized. "The fondness . . . for the spot of our nativity . . . (neither time nor) distance can eradicate . . ." (p v). Further, he wrote, "It behooves every American to be acquainted with the history of the place which gave him birth." (p. vi)The second motivating force behind his history seems to have been unquoted words from Shakespeare's drama, "The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones; . . ." (Julius Caesar, III, 2)And last, Christ's admonishment, after multiplying the loaves and fishes, to "Gather all the fragments, lest any be lost." (p. iv and p. 137)As a serious historical record, Ricketson's History often falls short of the mark. The deeds and characters of seemingly insignificant figures are often brought forward and explored in disproportionately greater depth than the deeds and characters of many who played more luminous roles in the history of Old Dartmouth Colony. It was not by chance that this occurred.The author was a deeply religious, Old Light Quaker, all of whose motivations and writings celebrated their virtues and goodness. A brief glance behind the scanty mention of certain more-notable figures shows them to have been slaveholders, apostates, or smugglers. Their places have been given to people who might have otherwise been lost to time. These were the people who gave him being, and among whom he lived. Too humble to glorify themselves, their names appeared neither on public buildings, nor street signs, nor often even gravestones. These were the earliest of the Old Light Quakers, and it is this now-extinct race that would most easily have passed into history as quietly as it once lived and thrived, if not for its humble and pious spokesman.For it was this community that collectively, more than individually, held the virtues and values that shaped and formed the character of Old Dartmouth for two centuries. For two centuries, it was a place unlike any other place in America because of the immense influence of its collective believers. A very small corner in a very small state, New Bedford still bears traces of its past. They live in the quiet brotherhood of scholars, preservationists, and volunteers who toil in her museums, libraries, and historical societies. They are recognized wherever people value goodness.And this is the importance, the relevance, and the value of Daniel Ricketson, the man and his book." (Fitzgerald)While Ricketson possessed many admirable qualities, contemporary accounts suggest other traits - "hypochondria and emotional instability" for starters - that would seemingly be at odds with the "stoical and intellectual" Thoreau. Don Mortland deconstructs their odd couple friendship in his 1985 work, Thoreau's Friend Ricketson: What Manner of Man? An excerpt recounting their first meeting:"On a cold Christmas Day in 1854 Daniel Ricketson, independently wealthy New Bedford Quaker, was shoveling snow when he observed approaching his house a man who he first took to be a pedlar. The man was Henry Thoreau. Ricketson has expected him earlier, and he has expected a somewhat different appearing man. The man he had invited, the who wrote Walden, which Ricketson has purchased the day after publication, he had imagined as a hardier, more muscular and robust man, not the slightly stooped, short, even somewhat homely person who said, "You don't know me." Ricketson at first didn't know him, but in the seven and one half years which Thoreau had yet to live the two men would get to know each other quite well. In fact, Ricketson would become, along with H.G.O. Blake, one of Thoreau's chief correspondents. Thoreau wrote twenty-seven to Ricketson and the latter wrote Thoreau forty four times. Thoreau would visit Ricketson six times in New Bedford (a 70 miles distance from Concord), while the latter would pay eight calls on Thoreau in Concord." (Mortland)This is an important book, scarce presentation, and an opportunity to access a bit of Thoreau magic dust at a fraction of the standard going rate.On a personal aside, Ricketson also made some poignant sketches of Thoreau during Henry's visits to him - which are now housed in museums. They are aching first hand accounts of the American icon on excursion, and convey the level of affection Ricketson held for his friend.

        John Brown Accepts Money, and a Pair of Pants, for the Anti-Slavery Cause – A Year to the Day Before His Execution for Leading the Failed Harper’s Ferry Slave Insurrection

      Osawatomie, Kansas 1858 - Autograph Document Signed Twice. Receipt to Samuel L. Adair, Osawatomie, Kansas, December 2, 1858, 1 p. 3 1/2 x 7 1/2 in. Historical BackgroundThe National Kansas Committee was established in Massachusetts as a direct result of the 1856 sacking of Lawrence, Kansas. Its purpose was to supply funds and other support (i.e., arms) to the anti-slavery or Free State residents of Kansas and to do whatever necessary to discourage the so-called Border Ruffians from Missouri in their efforts to establish Kansas as a slave state. Adair was one of Brown's brothers-in-law.Osawatomie was the site of an August 30, 1856, battle between Brown and a massive force of Border Ruffians. The ensuing fracas resulted in the town's sacking. Later, Brown and some followers murdered five pro-slavery settlers at Pottawatomie Creek. By the time this receipt was written, things had settled down in Bleeding Kansas, but plans were afoot to foment a "servile insurrection" to put an end to slavery.Complete Transcript$10. Osawatomie, Kansas, 2d Decem, 1858.Received of Rev. S. L. Adair $10, Ten Dollars in part payment of the National Kansas Committee claim against Andrew Updegraff John Brown Agent / of National Kansas CommitteeAlso received of same One pair of Pants, & one pair MittsDecem 2d 1858 John Brown Agent of / of National Kansas CommitteeJohn Brown (1800-1859) rejected the pacifism of other abolitionists and instead believed that slavery could only be overthrown by violence. To that end, he planned a raid against the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia in 1859 hoping to start a slave uprising. Instead, he was captured and executed for treason. Brown's raid at Harpers Ferry was the culmination of anti-slavery activities in Kansas in 1855 and 1856, as well as earlier Underground Railroad activities.Samuel Lyle Adair (1811-1898) was born in Ohio and graduated from Oberlin College in 1838 and from the seminary in 1841, when he married Florella Brown, John Brown's half sister. For the next thirteen years, Adair served as pastor of Congregational churches in Ohio and Michigan. In 1854, he moved to Kansas with the second New England Emigrant Aid Company party and organized the Osawatomie Congregational Church. Adair provided shelter and spiritual and material assistance to John Brown after his arrival in the fall of 1855. He was a devoted abolitionist and during the Civil War, Adair served for three years as a military chaplain at Fort Leavenworth. Adair returned to Osawatomie, where he continued to serve the church until his death.Andrew Updegraff (1816-1887) was born in Ohio and moved to Kansas in 1855. He had fifteen children with his first wife and three with his second wife. Updegraff aided Adair with the distribution of clothing, bedding, and food to families in need around Osawatomie in 1856.National Kansas Committee (also known as the Kansas Relief Committee) was an organization established in 1856 to encourage emigration to Kansas Territory and to aid free soil immigrants once they arrived. It raised $100,000 to sponsor two thousand settlers, but had dispersed its supplies and funds and ceased to function by mid-1857. Thaddeus Hyatt (1816-1901) was president of the National Kansas Committee, and its general agent was William F. M. Arny (1813-1881).

Original printed wrappers, in modern quarter gilt-stamped black leather over marbled paper-backed boards folding cases, in a matching slipcase; wrappers carefully repaired, spines slightly rubbed. Fine. BEAUTIFUL SET. FIRST EDITION of this superb summary of Bernard's work, along with that of his predecessors. Bernard, called “one of the greatest men of all science” by I. Bernard Cohen, revolutionized medicine through his advocacy of the scientific method and blind experiments and refusal to accept assumptions or shaky conclusions. He was the primary proponent of experimentation through vivisection, or experimentation on living animals, to the disgust of his family and some colleagues. Bernard's research included revelations about the pancreas and liver and the discovery of the vaso-motor system. He is perhaps best known for his concept of ‘milieu intérieur,” or extra-cellular fluid environment, and its physiological capacity to ensure protective stability for the tissues and organs (Wikipedia). Contains Bernard's description of “Horner's Syndrome” from lesion of the cervical sympathetic, offering proof that the sympathetic governs the papillary vasomotor, sudomotor, and pilomotor functions (Garrison & Morton 1328).

Originally published in 9 fascicules between 1858 and 1859, each consisting of 8 pages of letterpress (unpaginated) and 4 fine lithographic plates printed on grey paper. Joseph Maclise (c.1815-1880?) studied medicine at University College, London, and continued his anatomical studies in Paris at l'École Pratique, L'Hôpital le Pitié, and subsequently settled into medical practice in London. He produced a number of other anatomical works, including 'Comparative Osteology: being Morphological Studies to Demonstrate the Archetype Skeleton of Vertebrated Animals' (1847) and Surgical Anatomy (1851). Between 1861 and 1863 he shared his home with his brother, Daniel, a renowned Victorian artist and a member of the Royal Academy. Joseph was also an accomplished draughtsman, and produced the illustrations for his own publications. The current work was intended ‘to give a demonstration of those facts which have been already described by Sir A. Cooper* and others, and of those also which have not' (The British and Foreign Medico-Chirurgical Review, 1858).[*Astley Cooper, Dislocations and Fractures (1822)].

Sadleir, Trollope, 6. NCBEL III, 882. Wolff 6796. Trollope's sixth novel, written, according to the Trollope Society, "mostly in railway carriages, since his work for the Post Office [Trollope joined the London post office at age 19 and worked there in various capacities for the next 33 years] still entailed a good deal of travelling . . . The story is drawn from his memories of his work (as a clerk) at the GPO in St Martin-le-Grand, and Richard Mullen has called it the most autobiographical of Trollope's novels. The plot concerns three civil servants, Henry Norman and the cousins Alaric and Charley Tudor. They are involved with the three daughters of a clergyman's widow, Mrs Woodward. . . . The third of the clerks, . . . [t]he character of Charley Tudor, has long been claimed as an autobiographical portrait of Trollope, 'in his hobbledehoy days'. . . Trollope sent the novel to his mother in Italy, and from there it made its way to the home of Elizabeth Barrett Browning; she read it with great enjoyment, but reported in a letter that the grave illness Katie Woodward faces in the third volume of the novel 'wrung [her] to tears'. (Trollope himself always cried when he read this particular section). She concluded: 'My husband, who can seldom get a novel to hold him, has been held by this . . . what a thoroughly man's book it is!'" In fact, Trollope considered this "certainly the best novel I had yet written . . . the work has a more continued interest, and contains the first well-described love-scene that I ever wrote" (Trollope, Autobiography).

        THE GOUERNAYLE of HELTHE (HEALTH): with the Medecyne of Ye Stomacke. With Introductory Remarks and Notes by William Blades.

      London, Blades, East & Blades, 1858.. Reprinted in 1858 from William Caxton's edition of 1490, and LIMITED TO 55 COPIES ONLY. 8vo, approximately 200 x 135 mm, 8 x 5¼ inches, frontispiece with tissue guard is a printed facsimile of the first page of Caxton's book, repeated within, the text consists of a complete reproduction of Caxton's print in gothic type and "an annotated reprint" in roman type, pages: viii, [1], 25, [1], [36], [40], followed by 8 pages of Glossary, plus the prospectus for the Treatise on the Typographical Works of William Caxton, bound in full publisher's black morocco, gilt border to covers, rebacked to match, no lettering or label, all edges red. Small neat repair to fore-edge of upper cover, edges of covers just slightly rubbed, tissue guard browned and with a small chip at fore-edge, new pastedowns, inner hinges and one inner joint at front strengthened with bookbinder's linen tape, contents clean and bright, binding tight and firm. A very good copy. See: A Bibliography of Printing by Bigmore and Wyman, page 64. "An effort has been made, by the use of Types very similar to those employed by Caxton, to give this reprint something of the Appearance of the Original. To effect this still further, the Types were cast expressly in Pewter, which, from its Softness, yields an Impression resembling more the Productions of the early Printers than could be obtained from harder materials. Great care has been taken to make the Text an accurate Reproduction of the Original". (Preface). Fifteenth century books on health are very rare. This is a health maintenance manual focusing on how to keep men (not women) healthy, with occasional notes on ill-health. Both parts were published anonymously and The Governayle of Helthe has been variously attributed to John de Bordeaux and also to Bartholomaeus Montagnana, the younger, the Medecyne of Ye Stomacke has been attributed to John Lydgate. Caxton's edition was not reprinted until our edition of 1858 which is beautifully printed. William Blades the editor and publisher of our edition was deeply interested in Caxton and wrote the Life and Typography of William Caxton, England's First Printer, which was published in 1861-1863.

        Révision des coléoptères du Chili.

      - Paris, Société Entomologique de France, 1858-1866, 1883. 8vo (21.3 x 12.8 cm). 233 [and 14] pp. Two original water-colour plates of which one in full colour and one in shades of grey, two engraved plates of which one hand-coloured. One printed leaf added. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Spine with gilt lines and gilt title. Marbled endpapers.l A unique copy of this groundbreaking work on Chilean Coleoptera, in particular Buprestidae, Cerambycidae, Staphylidae and some other families. The work was published in installments over a rather long period in the society's Annales, and one part in the Revue et Magasin de Zoologie. This particular copy is of special interest because a) it consists of offprints, not excerpts, and b) it contains two original water colour plates including, apparently, the one that served as a basis for the published full colour plate, whereas the other is entirely unrecorded, and c) it includes, in the rear, two issues - number 1 complete, number 2 all but the first leaf - of the authors' "Coleoptera Chilensia", a separate privately published work with the short descriptions of many new species. According to Horn & Schenckling these small pamphlets are very rare. Added (loosely inserted), is a page with three new beetles from Chile described by Fairmaire in the Bulletin Entomologique (1885). Boards a bit rubbed, a few pages slightly age-toned, otherwise a very good, clean copy. Horn-Schenkling, 6306, 6337. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
