        Clipper Ship Sailing Card. Wild Rover

      This 1859 clipper card presents an iconic “sail beats steam” image - an increasingly desperate illusion propagated by the clipper ship industry. A fleet horseman (representing a speedy clipper ship) outpaces and even lassos the driver of a lumbering coal wagon (symbolizing a coal-fired steamship). Alas, the voyage advertised here was anything but speedy. Four times the Wild Rover passed Cape Horn, only to be blown back and forced to try again. She finally arrived in San Francisco almost six months after leaving New York. This card measures 6 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches and is printed by Nesbitt & Co. of New York. Save for a minor spot of discoloration in the upper left margin, it is in fine condition. &

        A Tale of Two Cities

      Chapman and Hall, London - FIRST BOOK EDITION, FIRST STATE, IN RARE ORIGINAL CLOTH of Dickens's historical masterpiece. An exceptional unrestored copy. "A Tale of Two Cities(serialized from 30 April to 26 November 1859)?was inspired by the story of the self-sacrificing lover Richard Wardour (Dickens's role) inThe Frozen Deep. In this novel, the second half of which takes place during the French Revolution, Dickens set himself the task, he told Forster, 'of makinga picturesque story, rising in every chapter with characters true to nature, but whom the story itself should express, more than they should express themselves, by dialogue', glossed by Forster as meaning that Dickens would be relying 'less upon character than upon incident' (Forster, 730, 731). In its tightly organized and highly romantic melodrama and the near-absence of typical 'Dickensian' humour and humorous characters,A Tale of Two Citiescertainly stands apart from all his other novels, although-as in his earlier historical novel-one of the great set pieces of the book is the anarchic destruction of a prison, an event to which Dickens's imagination responded with powerful ambiguity" (Dictionary of National Biography). Complete with sixteen plates (including frontispiece and vignette title) by Phiz, and 32-page publisher's catalog. First state: with p.213 misnumbered 113, "affetcionately" on p.134 (line 12), et al. London: Chapman and Hall, 1859. Octavo, original publisher's red cloth (first binding); early custom box. With royal bookplate of the Earl of Normanton on front pastedown and neat early signature (dated 1874) on front free endpaper. First gathering a little loose (as often), toning to spine and bottom edge of front board. Text and plates extremely clean. A bright, fresh copy in the rare original red cloth.

        A Complete Set of the Nine Extra Christmas Numbers of ALL THE YEAR ROUND.]

      1859 - London: Office of All The Year Round / Chapman & Hall, 1859-1867. Original self-wrappers (first four) and blue printed wrappers (last five) -- as issued. 9 volumes. First Editions of all nine "Extra Christmas Numbers" of this periodical that Charles Dickens founded, and edited for its nine years of existence. (Previously he had likewise founded Household Words, which likewise lasted nine years -- and which has nine Extra Christmas Numbers as well.) In addition to editing these tales, Dickens also wrote a portion of them -- specifically (per Eckel):~Christmas 1859: THE HAUNTED HOUSE. Dickens wrote "The Mortals in the House," "The Ghost in Master B's Room," and "The Ghost in the Corner Room," as well as most of the other opening paragraphs.~Christmas 1860: A MESSAGE FROM THE SEA. Dickens wrote Chapters I, II and V, plus passages in the others; the rest is by Wilkie Collins.~Christmas 1861: TOM TIDDLER'S GROUND. Dickens wrote Chapters I, VI and VII.~Christmas 1862: SOMEBODY'S LUGGAGE. Dickens wrote "His Leaving It Til Called For," "His Boots," "His Brown-Paper Parcel," "His Wonderful End" plus part of "His Umbrella."~Christmas 1863: MRS. LIRRIPER'S LODGINGS. Dickens wrote Chapters I and VII.~Christmas 1864: MRS. LIRRIPER'S LEGACY. Dickens again wrote Chapters I and VII.~Christmas 1865: DR. MARIGOLD'S PRESCRIPTIONS. Dickens wrote Chapters I, VI and VIII.~Christmas 1866: MUGBY JUNCTION. Dickens wrote "Barbox Brothers," "Barbox Brothers and Co.," "Main Line" and "No. 1 Branch Line."~Christmas 1867: NO THOROUGHFARE. Dickens wrote the Overture, Act III, plus parts of Act I and Act IV; Wilkie Collins wrote the rest.~As for condition, all nine issues are near-fine (just some very minor wear to the edges); the fourth and eight annual issues still have unopened leaves. The last one includes the loosely-inserted ad leaf for the Grand Christmas Number of the periodical "London Society." It is very tough to assemble all nine of these in this condition. Podeschi (Yale) E11 + E13-E20. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Duchochois. Facing each print is a complimentary selection of poetry by F.S. Cozzens, J.G. Whittier, J.R. Lowell, W.C. Bryant, T. Buchanan Read, Bayard Taylor, H.W. Longfellow, et al.

        Chambers's Journal of Popular Literature Science and Arts

      ONT>1859 - London - W. & R. Chambers. ONT>1859 - London - W. & R. Chambers, 1859 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Leatherbound volume with gilt title to the spine and marble paper covered boards, and marbled foredge. Robert Chambers (10 July 1802 17 March 1871), was a Scottish author and publisher, who, in partnership with his brother William, was highly influential in the middle years of the century. He was the anonymous author of the Vestiges of Creation. William Chambers of Glenormiston (April 16, 1800 - May 20, 1883) was a Scottish publisher and politician. The two brothers eventually united as partners in the publishing firm of W. & R. Chambers. In the beginning of 1832 William Chambers started a weekly publication under the title of Chambers's Edinburgh Journal (known since 1854 as Chambers's Journal of Literature, Science and Arts), which speedily attained a large circulation. Robert was at first only a contributor. After fourteen numbers had appeared, however, he was associated with his brother as joint editor, and his collaboration contributed more perhaps than anything else to the success of the Journal. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with both covers and all pages attached. There is some wear to the extremities including slight bumping to the corners,very heavy rubbing to the boards and some rubbing to the spine. Internally the pages are generally clean although slightly age-toned with the occasional handling mark and isolated spot. There is a bookplate to the front pastedown. Overall the volume is in good only condition..

        Anatomie comparée transcendante. Principes d'embryogènie, de zoogénie et de tératogénie.

      Paris, Didot 1859 - In-4. Collation : (2), XV, 942, (1) pp., (et 18 pages bis), 26 planches dépliantes. Demi-basane brune, dos lisse orné. (Reliure récente.) Première édition. Elle est illustrée par 26 planches lithographiées de monstruosités. Augustin Serres, collaborateur de Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, croyait qu'au cours de leur développement les organes des animaux supérieurs - dont l'homme - reproduisent la formes des organes équivalents des animaux inférieurs. DSB XII, 316 : "Serres’s theoretical position was more closely akin to that of Geoffrey Saint-Hilaire, who regarded Serres as his collaborator. Serres believed that there was only one underlying animal type and that in the course of their development, the organs of the higher animals repeated the form of the equivalent organs in lower organisms."

All hinges, except the upper hinge of Vol XI which is broken, are sound making this a very good set As can be seen the backstrips are matching with the same tools used. The marbled paper is quite thin and consequently it has rubbed through on most of the foreedges, there are a very few spots of foxing otherwise a genuinely VG attractive set. We have collated Vols. 1 and 2 and noted that page 229/30 is misbound after page 220 otherwise complete and VG. We can collate the other 10 volumes if required. This set, Vols. 1 to 12, covers the period Dickens was most actively involved with the magazine. First edition. Marcus Ward tickets are on the rear pastedowns of all volumes except Vols. 1, 2 and 12.

        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.
