        Adam Bede

      Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons, 1859. Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons, 1859 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The complete set of this highly sought after work, and the first to bepublished under the pseudonymGeorge Eliot. Third edition, published the same year as the first. With the original publishers' catalogue to the rear of volume one, andall volumes featuring their original half titles. Adam Bede was published with Evans' pseudonym, even thoughshe was a well-published and highly respected scholar of her time. Immediately recognised as a significant literary work, Adam Bede has enjoyed a largely positive critical reputation since its publication. An anonymous review in The Athenaeum in 1859 praised it as a novel of the highest class, and The Times called it a first-rate novel. Contemporary reviewers, often influenced by nostalgia for the earlier period represented in Bede, enthusiastically praised Eliot's characterisations and realistic representations of rural life. Charles Dickens wrote: The whole country life that the story is set in, is so real, and so droll and genuine, and yet so selected and polished by art, that I cannot praise it enough to you. Complete in three volumes. Condition: In original publishers' cloth bindings, with gilt lettering to the spines. Externally,lightly rubbed, with shelfwear to the spines. All spines are slightly cocked. Cloth is split to one rear joint. One rear hinge, and one front hinge is slightly strained.

        Adam Bede

      Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1859. Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1859 First edition, first printing. Finely bound by Gruel in crushed ¾ tan Morocco over multicolored marbled boards, with four raised bands to the spine, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, multicolored marbled endpapers, half-titles present, and sixteen pages of publisher's advertisements at rear. All three volumes near fine, with some minor wear to the spine ends, light rubbing to the hinges, minor toning to the spines, bright and clean pages. Vol. III with some additional rubbing to spine bands, and with the "Contents of the Third Volume" and "Book Fifth" page bound into the rear of the text (instead of at the front). Overall, a near fine and extremely attractive set. Adam Bede is the first full-length published novel by Mary Anne Evans, a top writer of the Victorian Era who chose to write under a male pseudonym so that her works would be taken more seriously. In addition to writing novels, she edited and contributed to the left-wing journal The Westminster Review as one of the only female editors of her time. Her novels were praised for being socially and politically conscious and realistic depictions of country life. Indeed, Evans described Adam Bede as "a country story-full of the breath of cows and the scent of hay." The text, largely influenced by Wordsworth and Coleridge's Lyrical Ballads (1798), tells the story of Adam Bede, a virtuous carpenter, who is in love with a milkmaid, who ultimately has a child with another man from their village. In addition to its masterful realism, Adam Bede is notable for its innovative "combination of deep human sympathy and rigorous moral judgment.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        A Tale of Two Cities

      London: Chapman and Hall, , 1859.. London: Chapman and Hall, 1859. First edition, first issue. Octavo, original red cloth. In near fine condition with light wear. First issue, with page 213 misnumbered as 113, the signature mark "b" on the List of Plates, and other first-issue points as called for. Illustrated by H.K. Browne, with 16 engraved plates by him. Housed in a custom morocco clamshell box. The most famous and possibly the most popular of Dickens's novels, A Tale of Two Cities shows a master of dramatic narrative extracting gold from the ore of history. If the bloody tableau of the French Revolution were not in itself sufficient for a dozen novels, Dickens added to it a professional resurrectionist, an authentic ogress, and an antihero as convincingly flawed as any in modern literature. Here, too, are all of Dickens's recurring themes -- imprisonment, injustice, and cataclysmic violence, resurrection and the renunciation that makes renewal possible.

Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath.

Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem.

      . 1859/60 nahm Themistokles von Eckenbrecher Unterricht beim Potsdamer Hofmaler Carl Gustav Wegener. Von 1861-67 lebte die Familie in Düsseldorf, wo der Sohn von 1861 bis 1863 Privatschüler bei Oswald Achenbach wurde und bald zu einem seiner Lieblingsschüler avancierte. Seinem Lehrer folgt er in der Brillanz der Farbe, in den Lichteffekten und den glanzvollen Szenerien der Komposition seiner Gemälde, ohne jedoch den Reiz seiner Staffage zu erreichen. Der Maler bereiste ganz Europa, v.a. Norwegen und den Vorderen Orient. Von seinen Reisen brachte er stets neue Motive mit nach Hause. 1892 unternahm er eine Reise in die Kolonien und bereiste u.a. Afrika und die Philippinen. 1919, zwei Jahre vor seinem Tod, zog er von Berlin, wo er seit 1889 ansässig war, nach Goslar. In Goslar befindet sich auch das Grab von Eckenbrecher..

        AGENTS AND GENERAL LETTER BOOK. COMMENCING 19TH OCT. 1859 ENDING 31ST DECEMBER 1861. Mr. Webb Hayward Solicitor Rochester 19 October 1859.

      1859 - Lined copy letter book, with manuscript entries. [23] p. index (1 page blank) + 309 p. + [16] p. blank. [6] registered letter receipts tipped in. Bound in vellum, marbled boards and edges. Extremities worn, especially at top of spine. Ink titles. Clean interior in several legible copperplate hands. The outgoing letters of a busy Rochester solicitor, amounting to some 1,200 separate entries over a period of two years and ten weeks. In the 1878 directory, William Webb Hayward of 196 High Street, Rochester, was also Clerk of the Peace, and to the trustees of St. Bartholomew's Hospital and registrar of the county court, etc. The new letter book opens with the acrimonious dissolution of Esell and Hayward: 'Mr. Esell has excluded me from the offices and he has all the Books and Accounts' and 'has treated me in a very cruel manner depriving me of a position worth œ7,000 to me and putting his own relations in my place and refusing to return to me the œ4,000 I paid him when I went into partnership.' He was also pursuing the Postmaster General over a letter, misdirected 'to another party thereby doing me a serious injury and inducing the commencement of legal proceedings against me.' Hayward acts on behalf of the Commissioners of Paving, etc., Rochester and Strood and writes to Samuel Smiles (1812-1904, author of Self-Help and Lives of the Engineers), Secretary of the South Eastern Railway about water dripping from a bridge over Strood High Street. He also acts for a client, who is claiming damages from the London, Chatham and Dover Railway, as goods, sent from Chatham to Canterbury, arrived late and caused financial loss. Another failed delivery was the case of the 'fish missent' by Messrs. Pickford from London to Stroud in Gloucestershire (instead of Strood), for which loss the client claimed œ5.5.6. Mr Aveling was written to in December 1861, 'the men in charge of your engine having refused to pay the Toll [at Strood] yesterday', Hayward also observing that the weight of the locomotive was not 'legibly conspicuously affixed thereon,' (the toll depended on the weight). Thomas Aveling (1824-82), the pioneer of steam traction engines, had just established his main works in Strood, having developed his first self-moving engine in 1859. Hayward was involved in several maritime cases. In 1860, a ship named The Guard, belonging to Frederick Fussell of Rochester, coal merchant, ran aground at the mouth of the Tees, and was salvaged by a shipbuilder, inevitably resulting in a dispute over conflicting claims and costs. Inland waters close to home also claimed his attention. The brig Tanner of Whitby 'was with her cargo seriously injured.owing to the defective and improper Moorings in the River Medway.' Hayward acted for the owner against Rochester Corporation and the case became complicated when he discovered that the city had borrowed diving apparatus from the Royal Engineers to survey the moorings, 'notwithstanding Captn. Mann's denial I am in a position to prove that the request for the loan was made by the Water Bailiff's son to the Sapper who referred him to the Sergeant who referred him to the Officer who gave permission.' Hayward complained of Captain Mann's conduct to the War Office. He also communicated with the Secretary of State for War on another matter involving the Royal Engineers at Chatham. A local builder, Mr Alfred Stump of Brompton had been unable to obtain payment of his outstanding account for constructing their new Mess House. Captain Casey, R.E. of the Ordnance Survey office, Southampton, received a complaint from Hayward on behalf of a farmer of Smolledge, near Chatham, whose field of peas has been damaged by a survey team. Along with his corporate clients and the usual conveyancing (including the sale of a windmill at Cliff) and probate work, Hayward was concerned in breach of promise and bastardy matters and also took the cases of many smaller litigants: a woman injured by the 'furious' driving of a grocer's cart, a M

        ALS ("J. Ericsson").

      No place, 22. III. 1859.. 4to. 1 p.. To a gentleman: "My Dear Sir: The anticipated breaking of frank's main leer, through the runner, has come and came, as unfortunately must, in every engine doing any thing like maximum work. I am induced to ask what action Msrs. Clute have taken in the matter. You remember my letter of the 13th March, which I sent to you and in which I urged it as an imperative necessity for Msrs. Clute to put wrought levers on the cast rack shafts in every engine cast in the manner complained of? I hope Mrs. Clute, in the face of my letter, has not sent down a new batch of engines without doing what they expressed themselves willing to do. Should the matter have been neglected, then order them at once to send your wrought iron main levers as fast as they can make them and let Banks turn the rack and put the levers online." - In a lengthy postscript, he continues: "Frank's engine is being pushed at Delmatins (?) with all possible speed but quadruple work has been done to which was expected. The engine appears to have been kept at white heat for hours as the vessel in the supply picture was completely burnt out." - The Swedish-born engineer Ericsson made numerous changes to the steam engine. By 1859, Ericsson was working on war ships, and by 1862 he designed and built his famous ship, "The Monitor", inaugurating a new era in warfare by creating vessels capable of launching torpedoes. A superb, scientific letter.
