SIEBOLD, Alexander Freiherr von.
Rare first edition of the account of Siebold's second and final journey to, and stay in, Japan, from 1859 till 1861, written by his eldest son, Alexander von Siebold (1846-1911), who accompanied his father Philip Franz von Siebold (1796-1866) on the trip and gives a lively account of their experiences. They travelled first to Batavia and then to Japan, where they stayed in Von Siebold's home Narutaki near Nagasaki. Von Siebold practised medicine there as he had in the 1820s, and many of his old patients and students came to visit him. Von Siebold also continued to search for material for his botanical collection. Alexander's account informs the reader about religious customs and literature, his own experiences in learning to speak Malayan and Japanese, and mastering the difficult art of writing Japanese using the Chinese "kan" (kanji) characters, also discussing the Japanese hiragana and katakana syllabary systems. Besides the four pages of advertisements (by Kisak Tamai and Foek) following the main text, the paste-downs contain further Kisak Tamai advertisements.Slightly browned, but otherwise in very good condition. Wrappers slightly soiled.Cordier, Japonica, col. 477; not in Nipponalia..

BAUDELAIRE Charles & HUGO Victor
- Poulet-Malassis et de Broise, Paris 1859, 11,5x18cm, relié. - Édition originale, dont il n'a été tiré que 500 exemplaires. Portrait de Théophile Gautier gravé à l'eau forte par Emile Thérond en frontisipice. Importante lettre préface de Victor Hugo. Reliure en plein maroquin rouge, dos à cinq nerfs sertis de filets noirs, date dorée en queue, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, ex-libris baudelairien de Renée Cortot encollé sur la première garde, couvertures conservées, tête dorée. Pâles rousseurs affectant les premiers et derniers feuillets, bel exemplaire parfaitement établi. Rare envoi autographe signé de Charles Baudelaire?: «?à mon ami Paul Meurice. Ch. Baudelaire.?» Un billet d'ex-dono autographe de Victor Hugo adressé à Paul Meurice à été joint à cet exemplaire par nos soins et monté sur onglet. Ce billet, qui ne fut sans doute jamais utilisé, avait été cependant préparé, avec quelques autres, par Victor Hugo pour offrir à son ami un exemplaire de ses Âœuvres publiées à Paris, pendant son exil. Si l'histoire ne permit pas à Hugo d'adresser cet ouvrage à Meurice, ce billet d'envoi, jusqu'à lors non utilisé, ne pouvait être, selon nous, plus justement associé. Cette exceptionnelle dédicace manuscrite de Charles Baudelaire à Paul Meurice, véritable frère de substitution de Victor Hugo, porte le témoignage d'une rencontre littéraire unique entre deux des plus importants poètes français, Hugo et Baudelaire. Paul Meurice fut en effet l'intermédiaire indispensable entre le poète condamné et son illustre pair exilé, car demander à Victor Hugo d'associer leurs noms à … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Kentucky]
Louisville, 1859. Very good.. 78 pieces, ranging from folio to smaller slips. Most printed forms completed in manuscripts, primarily a single page. Some wear and soiling. Archive of merchants Joseph, Eli, and W. Perry, documenting the life of a general goods store in the Louisville area. All the receipts present here are from wholesalers in Louisville Kentucky around 1850. Though there are a few later pieces, the bulk of the receipts are from 1849-1852, providing a nice documentation of the store's business needs. Over a dozen vendors are represented, including those providing shoes, boots, dishes, pitchers, tea, salt, indigo, cloth of various kinds, coats, hats, umbrellas, pencils, ribbon, and more. The Perrys also have several receipts from Todd's Tobacco Warehouse. Delivery address is noted in several places, variously as Clover Hill and East Fork. Likewise the firm's name seems to shift, with receipts being addressed to J & E Perry, E & W Perry, Joseph Perry, and Eli Perry. It was, presumably, a family concern which may have changed forms at various phases of its life.

Charles Dickens
1859. For sale is a rare second issue of the first edition of the original parts of A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens. Published London: Chapman and Hall, 193, Piccadilly; And At The Office Of All The Year Round, 11, Wellington Street, North. MDCCCLIX. 254p.p. A full suite of 16 illustrations by H.K. Browne. Tall 8vo. Beautifully bound in contemporaneous brown calf over marbled boards. Bands to the spine, in gilt, and the title in gilt to a morocco label. Original charcoal grey endpapers and plain page edges. Externally it remains in pleasing order; the calf is largely fresh and the gilt crisp and bright, and the boards also. Occasional trivial extraneous rubbing, and a couple of neat repairs, but this does not hinder its handsome finish. The hinges remain very firm indeed. Internally, this example is without doubt one of the cleanest examples of this title we have handled; only a tiny amount of light spotting to a few text leaves. The vignette and frontispiece have spotting, as is predictable. The impressions to the plates are extraordinarily bright and bold - making them a very early, and important, set in the print run of the plates. Overall, this is an opportunity not to be missed. It is one of the hardest-to-find Dickens first editions. It will grace any collection, and could not come more highly recommended.

Contemporary half calf with cloth-covered boards, gilt titling to front board; rebacked, corners rebuilt. Internally clean. This edition has double-page maps of Texas and Kansas with Nebraska. New York : Alvin Jewett Johnson, & Ross C. Browning, Fifth edition of Colton's world atlas, which was first published in 1856, and reprinted regularly thereafter. John Hutchins Colton (1800-1893) was one of the leading American cartographic publishers. This atlas provides an encyclopaedic and up-to-date description of the world, the maps accompanied by text - ?descriptions, geographical, stastistical, and historical? - compiled by Richard S. Fisher. This atlas was published in 1859; in that year the failure of the Bolivian Government to pay a $25,000 bill for creating an atlas of that country forced Colton into bankruptcy, and the use of his plates passed to the partnership of Johnson and Browning.

Charles Dickens
London: 1859. Very Good. A solid Binding with pages and plates much brighter than usually found. CHARLES DICKENS: A TALE OF TWO CITIES 1859 CHAPMAN & HALL - TRUE FIRST EDITION THIS WOULD MAKE FOR AN AMAZING DICKENS CHRISTMAS PRESENT "IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES, IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES" The following is a wonderful opportunity. A Tale of Two Cities was Charles Dickens's most popular work and regarded as one of the greatest books to ever be published. It has not out printed the Bible, but it has printed too many copies to count. There are 14 lovely plates by H.K. Browne (Phiz) as this would be their last work together - and they were quite the team. The binding is quite lovely and in a full calf binding. There are tears to the edges of the spine (see photos). The list of plates is not present. The pages have remained quite bright and show better than most copies that may come up on eBay. The title page shows the date of 1859. Pg. 213 is numbered correctly; hence the second state of the first edition. There is a name of a previous owner on the front - but it is tastefully done by a man named Arthur H.W. Ayling - a doctor - and dated 1867 (See photo). The text and plates are almost completely free from foxing and far, far better than most copies offered for sale. Simply, it would grace any collector's bookcase. Shipping, in a good box with tracking, is FREE to the US. Shipping to the UK, without tracking, is $40. Best of luck on this opportunity.

First edition, first issue of one of Dickens' most enduring works, with p. 213 misnumbered "113," the signature mark "b" at the foot of the plate list, and the misspelling "affetcionately" on line 12, p. 134. Octavo, bound in three quarters leather over marbled boards, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, raised bands, marbled endpapers. Sixteen plates after H.K. Browne including frontispiece and title vignette. In near fine condition. 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. "Dickens had always admired Carlyle's History of the French Revolution, and asked him to recommend suitable books from which he could research the period; in reply Carlyle sent him a 'cartload' of volumes... So great was [Dickens'] enthusiasm for the story that it had indeed 'taken in possession' of him... The force of the novel springs from its exploration of darkness and death but its beauty derives from Dickens' real sense of transcendence, from his ability to see the sweep of destiny" (Ackroyd, 858).

[THÉÂTRE D'OMBRES]
?Paris, c. 4to (315 × 245), Album Clapisson 1859. Paris: Bertauts, [1858], lithograph title, 24 leaves of music an 12 lithograph plates. Covered with white and black paper to which are pasted reproductions of shadow theatre prints and a colour printed eye. Ex Libris Alain Dubois, small envelope with title: 'Messe noire et Magie blanche'. A bizarre occult amateur binding/wrapper project. A mid nineteenth-century musical album (unrelated to theme of the binding) has been covered with black and white paper onto which are pasted cutouts from a popular shadow theatre print/game, probably a reproduction of a plate originally issued by Pellerin at Epinal in the mid-nineteenth century entitled La tentation de saint Antoine. Devils crowd around gothic churches, to which has been added, in an inspired surrealist touch, a single colour printed eye. The book bears the ex libris of Alain Dubois, noted collector of popular prints, whose collection was acquired by the Musée national des Arts et Traditions populaires in the 1960s. A monographed envelope, tucked in, bears an appropriate title: 'Messe noire et Magie blanche'. The musical album beneath the wrapper has no obvious connection--probably selected for this treatment merely for its useful size. . Order directly from our website for free shipping worldwide.

Obra muy bien documentada que contiene numerosas noticias históricas y estadísticas referentes a las poblaciones de Baja California. El libro divulga las repercusiones que causó el decreto emitido por el gobierno de Ignacio Comonfort sobre los terratenientes californianos por el cual se amenazaba con anular los títulos de propiedad "donde las ventas o enajenaciones de terrenos baldíos que se hubieran hecho desde 1821 a la fecha (1857) por los jefes políticos o gobernadores y cualquier otra autoridad civil o militar del territorio o Departamento de ambas Californias, son nulas y de ningún valor mientras no obtengan la ratificación del supremo gobierno". Este libro ha sido caracterizado como un clásico en la historia de Baja California, ya que ha permitido conocer a fondo la tenencia de la tierra desde la época prehispánica hasta mediados del siglo XIX. En el texto, además de enfocarse la historia de la colonización de Baja California, se engloba aspectos interdisciplinarios como la política, la economía y lo social, junto con discursos jurídicos históricos y filosóficos. La obra no sólo explica la tenencia de las tierras desde tiempos prehispánicos, sino que da un panorama sobre las misiones, minería, jefes políticos, y documentos que Lassépas fue recolectando para defender a los bajacalifornianos de este decreto.Ejemplar de importante procedencia, que perteneció a Agustín Olvera (1818-1876), pionero de Los Angeles en California y … [Click Below for Full Description]

1859. THE ORDEAL OF RICHARD FEVEREL - A History of Father and Son, by GEORGE MEREDITH. THREE VOLUME SET - Complete in these Three Volumes. LONDON: CHAPMAN AND HALL, 193, Piccadilly, 1859. FIRST EDITION. This was George Meredith's first full-length novel (preceded only by a volume of verse and two single-volume burlesques). When it first came out, in 1859, it was a critical and financial failure, considered both "unreadable" and of "low ethical standards". It was not, therefore, reprinted until 1878. Then, all of a sudden, the critics began raving about the book to such an extent that it became required reading at many English schools. That is why the 1859 first edition of what became the author's best known work is scarce.
