Egerström, Carl Axel
Albert Bonniers Förlag, Stockholm, 1859. First edition. In contemporary half leather, spine gilt. Publisher's, green, illustrated wrappers bound into. With three illustrations (one text illustration and two on the wrappers). VI, 326 p. Rare Swedish travelogue about the East Indies, North America, Hawaii and Australia. This scarce travelogue and autobiography, rich in descriptions of political, cultural and natural aspects of the visited places, was written by Carl Axel Egerström (1829-1900) the Swedish soldier, adventurer and traveller. The wood-engraved illustration on page 312 shows the bay of Sydney. Egerström, after a failed military career in Europe arrived to Calcutta in 1852 to get enrolled to the British forces in the Burmese War. He was rejected, thus decided to travel to North America to seek his fortune in the goldfields. He arrived to Boston in early 1853, from there he sailed to San Francisco via Cape Horn. Due to his ill-luck on the fields he proceeded to Hawaii in 1855, where he made acquaintance with Abraham Fornander, the Swedish-born Hawaiian journalist, judge, and ethnologist. Egerström soon returned to California, where the rumors about the gold fields in Australia were already wide-spread. He traveled to Ballarat through Melbourne, but the luck with the gold avoided him there too. Eventually he became a part owner of a local business in the city of Dubbo, from where he returned to Sweden in 1858.

Mandelstam, Leon (1809-1889), prepared by
M. Ettingera, St. Petersburg, Russia, 1859. In Hebrew and Russian. (4), 323, (23) pages. 22 x 15 cm. The title page has an oval rubber stamp impression with words in Russian. The top of the stamp reads: ????? ??????????, which in English is Yaakov Abramovich (alternative spelling in English: Abramovitch). The bottom of the stamp has Yaakov Abramovich's last name. It is faint and hard to make out. It seems to be either ??????????? (Klimovitzky) or ??????????? (Klipovitzky). In the center of the stamp is the City's name, in Russian, ???????, whose modern name is Daugavpils. On the eve of WWII it had c. 16,000 Jewish Latvian inhabitants. All but 100 of them were murdered by their Christian Latvian neighbors with the help of the German invaders. The words at the bottom of the stamp are unclear. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

1859. A Case of Arson in Gloucester, Massachusetts [Trial]. Looker-on in Vienna. Trial of Marshall and Ross for Barn-Burning: A Brief Exposure of a Systematic Attempt to Mislead the Public Mind, And Create a False Sympathy in Behalf of Convicted Incendiaries. [Gloucester, MA: S.n.], 1859. 20 pp. Octavo (8-3/4" x 5-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in printed wrappers. Light soiling and negligible edgewear, rear wrapper lacking, light toning to text. * Only edition. Marshall and Ross (we are never given their first names) were a tenant and hired hand of a Mr. Niles, a farmer. They were convicted of arson after Niles's barns were destroyed by fire. This verdict seemed unfair and the defense attorney petitioned successfully for an appeal. Published in the weeks leading up to the second trial, this pamphlet offers an argument for their conviction. An interesting case, it is also a fine record of the social setting of criminal law in small-town New England in the mid-nineteenth century. OCLC locates 5 copies in North America law libraries (Columbia, Harvard, Library of Congress, Social Law, University of Missouri). Catalogue of the Library of the Harvard Law School (1909) II:1140.

Ward, The Hon. Mrs. Mary
London: Groombridge & Sons, 1859. First edition. Original publisher's cloth binding with gilt to spine and front board. All edges brightly gilt. Spine a bit toned and a bit of rubbing to rear board, but in all a square and pretty copy. Yellow endpapers. Front hinge professionally strengthened. Light offsetting to versos of some plates. Internally clean and unmarked. Collates xii, [2], 212: complete, with half-title, frontis, and all 15 plates designed by the author. With OCLC reporting only 18 copies at U.S. institutions, and no other copies on the market, this important astronomy book for children has become quite scarce. A childhood fascination with science turned into serious study for Mary Ward when, on her 18th birthday, her father presented her with a microscope made by Andrew Ross, one of the leading instrument makers of London. "Mary Ward continued to pursue the scientific interests in adulthood that had been so much encouraged in her girlhood. Her close friendship with her cousin, Lord Rosse, and his wife meant that she was often at Birr during the building of the great telescope...completed in 1845, she was the first to make observations with it" (ODNB). Because she faced challenges getting scientific work published in academic journals, she turned to writing educational children's books which were "favourably reviewed for their easy style and especially for the quality of Mary's illustrations" (Turner). Telescope Teachings was one of her most famous texts, encouraging women and children to see the study of the sky as accessible and exciting. "This little book doe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tennyson, Alfred Lord
Edward Moxon & Co, London, 1859. First edition, first issue of Tennyson's "long-meditated great task" which brought him to fame (Baugh, 1388). Without publisher's imprint on verso of title page. Octavo, original cloth with gilt titles to the spine, publisher's advertisements. In very good condition. With Idylls of the King, one of the giants of Victorian literature turned his considerable talents to the lore surrounding a larger-than-life British ruler. Alfred, Lord Tennyson cast his interpretation of Arthurian myth into the form of an epic poem, and his tales of Camelot soar to remarkable imaginative heights to trace the birth of a king; the founding, fellowship, and decline of the Round Table; and the king's inevitable departure. Encompassing romance, heroism, duty, and conflict, Tennyson's poetry charts the rise and fall of a legendary society. "By the early 19th century, the Arthurian legends had become a literary anachronism. Tennyson's poetry brought about a rebirth of interest in the material and eventually placed it on a new plateau of respect and significance for writers and artists. Tennyson's recreation of the Arthurian world is an attempt to reform his generation by showing the effects of sensuality, materialism and spiritual blindness" (Lacy, 446-49).

1859. London: Chapman & Hall, MDCCCLIX (1859). 8vo, [ix], [1]-254, 16 etched plates including frontis and title vignette. Full olive green fine-diaper cloth, entirely stamped in blind with a three line border which encloses a rectangular frame within which is is an ornament of leaves and stems in each corner and a chain-like design with each link enclosing a four-leafed flower. Housed in a green cloth slip-case. The head and tail of the backstrip are very slightly bumped with some sun toning; minor scattered foxing mostly near plates and some off-setting; a good clean copy in a beautifully preserved original cloth binding. § First edition in the rare secondary green cloth binding. Two of the eight internal flaws identified by Smith as necessary for the first issue have been corrected: "l" and "f" are printed on p.116 and 213 is numbered correctly. Of the latter point Eckel observes "The absence of this error does not invalidate a first edition but it fixes the priority of printing" and Smith concludes "this binding is probably of a later state than the red morocco [cloth] one", i.e. second issue. "When Dickens began the publication of All the Year Round, the successor of Household Words, he realized the necessity of making a strong start. So he began writing A Tale of Two Cities, publishing the first of the serial in the opening number of his new periodical... As a novel of great popularity it probably ranks next to Pickwick and Copperfield" (Eckel 87).

GONCHAROV, Ivan Aleksandrovich
I. Glazunov for D.E. Kozhanchikov, Skt Peterburg, 1859. The rare first edition of Goncharov’s masterpiece – a landmark of Russian literature. RBH and ABPC record only one other copy having been offered at auction. Oblomov, who spends much of his time in bed or on the sofa, gave a name to the fatalistic attitude of ‘superfluous’ Russian intellectuals and aristocrats: individuals incapable of productive work or of making a meaningful decision. Although much has been said about the value of Oblomov as a critique of Russian society at a time when serfdom was on the wane, Goncharov himself thought of it as a treatise on human nature. Kilgour 359. Four parts in two volumes, twelvemo (208 x 130mm). With the half-titles (lightly browned throughout, as often; tear in the inside margin of the first title; leaf 1.12 of vol. 1 detached and creased but present; leaf 16.3 in vol. 2 with a tear and some wear associated from an adhering tissue leaf). Contemporary Russian half roan, spines gilt in compartments and lettered directly in gilt, black paper sides (extremities rubbed; sides and spines scuffed). Provenance: S.

FITZGERALD, EDWARD
London: Bernard Quaritch, 1859. First edition of one of the most celebrated poetical rarities of 19th-century English literature. Only a handful of the 250 copies printed sold at first, so the publisher consigned the balance to the bargain bin, with the price reduced from five shillings to one penny. Many copies were discarded or lost. Swinburne found a copy, passed it on to Rossetti, and the book s fame spread rapidly. Scores of editions followed, and FitzGerald s translation of the Rubaiyat remains one of the best-loved and most often printed poems in the English language. The work on which FitzGerald s fame will mainly rest is his marvelous rendering of the Quatrains [The Rubaiyat] of Omar Khayyam, the astronomer poet of Persia, which he has made to live in a way that no translation ever lived before. In his hands the Quatrains became a new poem, and their popularity is attested by the four editions which appeared in his lifetime.

PASINI, Alberto.
Paris, 1859. Tinted lithograph on india paper, laid on card as issued, printed area 235 x 340mm. Small repaired tear in wide margins. A view of Hajj pilgrims camped at the gates of Jedda, en route to Mecca, drawn and lithographed by Alberto Pasini, one of the first professional artists to visit the area. In 1855 Pasini (1828-99) joined the French diplomatic mission under Prosper Bourré to the court of Nasser al-Din Shah in Tehran, an attempt to counter Russian influence in Persia during the Crimean War. Pasini was invited to make a visual record to accompany the written account by Joseph-Arthur, Comte de Gobineau (1816-1882). The mission left Marsailles for Alexandria, crossing Suez to join the East Indiaman Victoria bound for Bushire. They put in at Jeddah (where they met Kemal Pasha, Guardian of the Holy Shrines at Mecca and Medina), then Aden, and Muscat (where they had an audience with the Sultan, Syed Said), before crossing the Gulf. From Bushire they travelled north to Shiraz, Isfahan, and Tehran. Pasini stayed at the Shah's court, before returning to Paris in 1856. In 1859 Pasini published his pictorial record of the mission: an album of 12 prints, lithographed by himself from his drawings, 'Viaggio nell' Egitto, nella Persia et nell' Armenia, dodici vedute disegnate dal vero litografate da Alberto Pasini'.

The Federalist Parsons was the principal author of the plan which John Adams adopted for the Massachusetts state constitution, and he contributed significantly to the ratification of the federal constitution. Parsons served as chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court from 1806 to 1813. Considered somewhat eccentric, he was often accompanied by his wife, who made sure her husband dressed well and looked presentable. His eccentricities did not compromise his judicial decisions, however, and his law clerks included John Quincy Adams, future sixth president of the United States, who practiced with Parsons after graduating from law school.

Small paper repair to foot of spine and tissue reinforcement to edges of rear wrap. Light spotting and soiling to edges. Stamp of Howard Tilton Memorial Library Tulane University to rear wrap and deaccession duplicate notation to title page. Measuring 8.75 x 5.75" and containing 20 pages. Internally clean and unmarked, and holding tight. An exceptional and early document of one of the early woman's rights conventions, the present title is reported at 15 institutions on OCLC and does not appear in the modern auction record. Occuring only 11 years after the first women's rights convention in Seneca Falls, NY, the Ninth National Woman's Rights Convention drew together the most widely recognized leaders of the movement to formalize legislative strategies to accomplish a federal suffrage amendment, to address the possibility of state suffrage amendments, and to rally activists through a series of speeches. These proceedings document the events in great detail, recording votes and resolutions by the committees, reproducing speeches, and even noting audience reactions (such as silence, applause, and boos or hisses). Susan B. Anthony served as convention chair, calling events to order and making an oration during the event. Lucretia Mott, one of the most senior members of the movement, attended and spoke about the progress she witnessed across a decade.

Half-title. 363 wood-engravings in text after the drawings by H. V. Carter. Modern brown leather. A very good copy with characteristic light browning and intermittent marginal staining consistent with the book's use. Provenance: J. L. Mondloch (early 20th-century ink signature on half-title; possibly a physician from Montana of that name, died 1939). Item #403937 FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. Henry Gray's landmark Anatomy, which remains the standard work on the subject some 160 years after the publication of the first edition. The short-lived English anatomist and surgeon Henry Gray won prizes for his essays on the optic nerves (1849) and on the spleen (1854), the latter of which contained important facts about its function that had remained undiscovered for seventy years. In 1855, Gray was approached by his colleague Henry Vandyke Carter (1831-1897) at St. George's Hospital Medical School in London with the idea of producing a comprehensive, inexpensive, and accessible text on anatomy for medical students. After the publication in London of the Anatomy in 1858, numerous errors were found in its dense and technical text. The publisher's notice in the American edition informs the reader that the book's "passage through the press has therefore been superintended by a competent professional" to ensure the improvement of the text. The American edition enhanced on the index of the British edition, and rearranged certain parts for easier comprehe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jacob, John G.
Wellsburg, Va.: Jacob & Smith, 1859. 280pp. including one full-page illustrations, plus four plates (including frontispiece). Original blindstamped rust cloth. Minor edge wear, small nick near spine head, dust soiled. Minimal foxing along fore edge. Very good. A scarce biography that records not only much of Patrick Gass's recollections and his journal of the Lewis & Clark expedition, but also includes interesting information from his career as a soldier in the War of 1812 and an account of his life in Ohio in the early part of the nineteenth century. The four plates include a frontispiece portrait of Sgt. Gass, a scene of Mandan Indians, a portrait of Mandan chief Big White in formal dress, and a depiction of colonial Americans "Going to Church in Old Times." "Gass became one of the best-known members of the expedition for several reasons: his key role as sergeant brought his name up frequently in the journals of Lewis and Clark; his account was the first to be published; he was the first to have a biography written about him; and finally, he outlived the other members of the Corps of Discovery by decades, dying at the age of ninety-nine in 1870" - Wagner-Camp.
