MISTRAL, Frédéric.
Avignon: J. Roumanille, 1859. Octavo (213 x 131 mm). 20th-century red half morocco, spine lettered in gilt, red marbled sides and endpapers, edges speckled brown. Ink ownership signature to half-title. Spine lightly faded with a few rub marks, tips with very minor wear, some light foxing. A very good copy. First edition, first printing (without the dedication to Lamartine and the note on pronunciation). Mistral's long narrative poem was his first great literary success, and is generally considered his masterpiece. Taking eight years in composition, the poem, written in the Provençal dialect, tells of a young couple's thwarted romance. Mistral (1830-1914) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1904, "in recognition of the fresh originality and true inspiration of his poetic production, which faithfully reflects the natural scenery and native spirit of his people, and, in addition, his significant work as a Provençal philologist".

This is an Extremely Rare and Very Old Original 1859 Copy of Memorial of the Revival in Plymouth Church. It is not likely that you often get the opportunity to purchase an original of this book. This book is considered to be a culturally and historically significant book, and has been recently reprinted with the help of another old original copy. This book shows considerable wear, including wear to the cover with part of the covering having pulled loose from the spine. Because the book is so old and rare, I have made no attempt to re-glue the cover back to the spine - this would be better left in the hands of someone experienced in restoring such books. There is discoloration and/or staining on the pages and there is some markings, mostly on the blank pages at the end of the book. I have included several photos to give you an idea of the book's condition. Since the book is sold as is, please look closely at the photos I have provided and if you have any questions or would like any additional photos, please let me know. I can usually ship your item within two business days, however for times when I am occasionally on travel, it may take a couple of extra days. If this is the case, I will email you and let you know when the item will ship. This item will be shipped with insurance and with a signature required upon delivery. If you have specific requirements with respect to shipping, please let me know upon or prior to purchase. Thanks for looking and good luck! PHOTOS: Please carefully review all photos provided.

R. J. Prickett
Book Title: THE REV. J.W. LOGUEN, AS SLAVE AND AS FREEMAN Author: J. W. Loguen (Jermain Wesley), 1814-1872. Jermain Wesley Loguen was born around 1814 in Davidson County, Tennessee, to an enslaved mother named Jane (who was later renamed Cherry) and her white master, David Logue. Originally named Jarm Logue, he later added the "n" to his last name to differentiate himself from his slave-master father and adopted the middle name "Wesley" to reflect his Wesleyan Methodist sympathies. When he was in his early twenties, Loguen escaped from slavery and fled to Canada. He eventually settled in New York state, enrolled in the abolitionist Oneida School in 1839, and later established a school in Utica, New York, for African American children. He moved to Syracuse, New York, in 1841, founded another school, and married Caroline Storum, with whom he had five children. Loguen was ordained by the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Zion Church in 1842 and became increasingly involved with the anti-slavery movement, working with other abolitionists, including Frederick Douglass, on the lecture circuit. Loguen publicly denounced the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law and swore to defy it. He even advertised himself as a prominent Underground Railroad conductor in an April 1855 issue of Frederick Douglass' Paper, writing "that the Underground Railroad was never doing a better business than at present. . . . I speak officially, as the agent and keeper of an Underground Railroad Depot." Loguen served as pastor of Zion Church in Binghamton, New York, in the early 1860s, and after the Civil War became act … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Printed for Private Circulation [by Taylor and Greening], 1859. 1st edition (NCBEL III, 830 & 1083). PRESENTATION copy from the author, INSCRIBED at the top of the t.p., 'Edward Bradley / from the author" 15, [1 (blank)] pp. Binder's blanks at rear of volume. 8vo. 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Late 19th C. 3/4 blue morocco binding with marbled paper boards & eps. Elaborate gilt decorated spine. TEG. Modest binding wear at extremities. Bookplate. A handsome VG+ copy. Item #37179 The notorious quarrel between two of England's most popular authors began with Yates' critical review, in Town Talk, of Thackeray's English Humourists of the Eighteenth Century. Thackeray, as might be expected, was a bit affronted at what he viewed as a slanderous insult by this fellow member of the Garrick Club; believing much of Yates' information came from club meetings, he took his grievance to the club committee. The committee sided with Thackeray and instructed Yates to apologize; Yates refused & was forcibly barred from club premises, subsequently bringing charges against the club Secretary. Dickens, absent from London as this brouhaha was brewing, returned to find all in full force. He offered to mediate, though primarily siding with Yates, which Thackeray viewed as treachery. The ill feelings between the two did not abate for years, until shortly before Thackeray's death in 1863. Herein Yates recounts the history & evidence of the disagreement, with, not unexpectedly, a bias to his own case.

The work encompasses a vast and fascinating range of topics, including meticulous descriptions of acceptable dress codes for European males and females and an exposition on the Manners of the Natives! Today, the chief scholarly value of the book lies in its construction of Indian history, politics and culture from a 19th century European frame of reference.

Original maroon pebble-grain cloth neatly rebacked with original gilt lettered spine laid down, ornamentally blind-stamped covers and spine, drab brick-red endpapers carrying publisher's advertisements. Spine sunned, gilt rather faint, binding rubbed at extremities, a few old ink stains to sides. A good copy, clean and sound. First and sole edition, uncommon on the market, comprising six essays originally contributed to the Calcutta Review between 1844 and 1856: "Military Defence of our Indian Empire", "The Kingdom of Oude", "Mahratta History and Empire", "Lord Hardinge's Indian Administration", "The Indian Army", "Army Reform". ODNB remarks that "throughout his career [Lawrence] showed considerable literary ability in a series of articles and books on Indian political and military affairs". Sir Henry Lawrence (1806-1857) served with distinction in India, seeing action during the First Anglo-Afghan War (1839-42) and both Anglo-Sikh Wars (1845-49), but it was as the defender of Lucknow during the Mutiny that he was apotheosised. Mortally wounded early in the siege he remained lucid despite intense pain, and gave "detailed instructions about the conduct of the defence of the residency and ordered them never to surrender" (ibid.). He died of his wounds and was buried in the residency churchyard "attended only by the chaplain, as all the defenders had to remain at their posts" (ibid.). Provenance: from the library of Sir Frederick William Traill-Burroughs (1831-1905), army officer, inscribed by him at the head of the title "F. Burroughs … [Click Below for Full Description]

Binding furbished, spine and tips consolidated, lettering retouched, a little oxidisation. A very good copy. Folding map frontispiece showing "Brigadier Smith's Plan for surrounding Tantia Tope" and one other folding map of the Duberlys's route across India. First edition. Fanny Duberly went to Crimea with her husband from 1854 to 1855, where she cut a memorable figure, "perched on a prancing steed and galloping into battle at the head of the Eight Hussars" (Robinson, p. 259). When the couple went to India, Fanny "actively accompanied her husband, an officer of the 8th Hussars, throughout the chase of various scattered groups of sepoys including the infamous and elusive Tantia Topee. As her narrative indicates, she was no camp follower. She rode to the sound of battle to the point of having a horse killed by round shot beneath her" (Riddick). She once wrote that she had "often prayed that [she] may wear out [her] life and not rust it out" (Robinson, p. 260) and this book is one account of her attempts to avoid a dull, sedentary existence. This is a "fascinating. highly interesting" (Sorsky) and uncommon book. Jain 530; Ladendorf 255; Riddick 205; Robinson, Wayward Women, p. 259-60; Sorsky 353; Taylor 225. [Attributes: First Edition]

Charles Dickens
London: Very Good. A solid Binding with pages and plates much brighter than usually found. CHARLES DICKENS: A TALE OF TWO CITIES 1859 CHAPMAN & HALL FIRST EDITION / FIRST ISSUE 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. First printings of the first edition are indeed rare! The binding is quite solid and in lovely condition. It has been appropriately bound in red and shows very well. The gilt spine is still very bright and prominent. 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. It has the rare first issue point of Pg. 213 being numbered as Pg. 113. It is missing the 'b' on the list of plates. This is being offered on eBay far below the actual value and no reasonable offer will be denied. Shipping, in a good box with tracking, is FREE to the US. Shipping to the UK, without tracking, is $60 as this is a heavy / high quality binding. This will probably not last long. I do have some other great and rare books offered on eBay including a very rare 1935 first edition of Mary Poppins Comes Back. The movie, Mary Poppins Returns was just in theaters. This is the rare UK (true first edition) with the original dust jacket in VG+ condition. These dus … [Click Below for Full Description]

San Francisco [verso of title page: Sacramento]. Wrapper date: 1860. [5], [3]-167pp. Original printed front wrapper [edge- and spine-chipped]. Later leaves margin-spotted, last leaf chipped in blank portion. Good+. The title page imprint states: "Published by Appellants: San Francisco. 1859." Its verso reads, "J.

Rosenbach's 1937 catalogue [#98] called this an "Able and standard authority on Spanish and Mexican law relating to titles of grants of land." Howell describes it as an "extensive examination of the whole title question relating to Sheriff's deeds (Peter Smith Titles) and in particular to the validity of extending these titles against property in the bona fide possession of others. This important test case, presided over by Justice Stephen J. Field, includes much important historical material on the Mexican laws regulating and defining Pueblos." FIRST EDITION. Cohen 11704.

ROBERTSON, H. Dundas.
London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1859. London: Smith, Elder and Co.,, 1859. In the North-West Provinces of India in 1857: with Remarks on Subsequent Investigations during 1858-1859. Octavo (187 x 118 mm). Bound in blue green sand-grain cloth in Lahore, gilt lettering to spine. Publisher's catalogued dated November 1859 bound in at the end. With 1 fold out map of Saharunpore and environs. Binder's ticket on front pastedown, stamps of the Annarkullie Book Club, Lahore and Mian Mir Institute. Binding lightly furbished, spine relined, short closed tear to the map, neatly repaired. A very good copy. First edition. Scarce, with only six locations on Copac. Robertson, a member of the Bengal Civil Service, served as joint magistrate in the Saharunpore district. This is his first-hand account of the Indian Mutiny in this "rather isolated" area (p. 1). Robertson's "position frequently became that of the only European actor in the scenes described" (p. vi), and so, in many parts, this is a unique account of the uprising. Among the incidents described, Robertson relates the events of the mutiny of the 5th Native Infantry Regiment at Saharunpore and an uprising around Deoband. Does not appear in Riddick.

ATKINSON, George Francklin.
London: Day & Son, 1859. London: Day & Son,, 1859. From Drawings made during the eventful period of the Great Mutiny. Illustrating the military operations before Delhi and its neighbourhood. Folio. Original red pebble-grain cloth, spine gilt lettered and divided by triple fillets, sides with blind triple-fillet border and ornamental corner-pieces, front cover gilt lettered and with large pictorial stamp, all edges gilt, yellow coated endpapers. Tinted lithograph vignette title and 25 plates (on 19 sheets) by Simpson, Walker, Bryson, McCulloch, Needham, Jones, Laby or Picken after Atkinson. Binding furbished, grain of spine smoothed and lettering skilfully retouched, extremities of spine and corners consolidated, new paper inner hinges; covers a little dished, pale mottling to back cover, margins of majority of plates and letterpress reinforced, (a couple of leaves a little ragged at fore-edge and repaired), letterpress foxed as usual, later pencilled note at foot of letterpress to plate 24 (remarking on the passing over for commendation of Hodson of Hodson's Horse). This remains a bright, sound copy. First and only edition of this superb, but notoriously fragile, pictorial record of the Mutiny. The illustrations, genuinely spirited and exhibiting an eye for the telling detail, are based on the very accomplished sketches made by Atkinson (1822-1859) while he was serving as a captain with the Bengal Engineers (Ambala Division). He is better known for Curry and Rice (1858), his satirical view of social life in India during the Raj - also illustrated with lithographs - which … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original grey-green cloth, blocked in blind, gilt title to spine; vol I. pp. [2, title], iv, 314; Vol II. pp. [ii], 360; vol III. pp. [ii], 308; spines heavily faded across all three volumes, otherwise lightly worn covers, occasional light foxing and some small creases and minor tears throughout from past use, with the bookplate of John Martineau in all three volumes, and the contemporary label of Boddington's lending library affixed to the front paste-down endpaper of volume two. First Edition. A collection of short stories, strung together by the narrative of a girl kept busy by three well-meaning storytellers (a la *a thousand and one nights*) so that her fiance can catch up to her and propose. Like many of his collections, Queen of Hearts contains stories published in periodicals beforehand - of particular note is "Brother Griffith's story of the Biter Bit" (or "The Biter Bit" which originally appeared in the Atlantic Monthly under the name "Who is the Thief?". This story proved very popular, and frequently appeared in anthologies until the late 20th century. Despite its brevity, it is known for its engaging plot, atmosphere and characters as one of Collins' best, ranking in popularity alongside his full length works like The Moonstone.

R. J. Prickett
Book Title: THE REV. J.W. LOGUEN, AS SLAVE AND AS FREEMAN Author: J. W. Loguen (Jermain Wesley), 1814-1872. Jermain Wesley Loguen was born around 1814 in Davidson County, Tennessee, to an enslaved mother named Jane (who was later renamed Cherry) and her white master, David Logue. Originally named Jarm Logue, he later added the "n" to his last name to differentiate himself from his slave-master father and adopted the middle name "Wesley" to reflect his Wesleyan Methodist sympathies. When he was in his early twenties, Loguen escaped from slavery and fled to Canada. He eventually settled in New York state, enrolled in the abolitionist Oneida School in 1839, and later established a school in Utica, New York, for African American children. He moved to Syracuse, New York, in 1841, founded another school, and married Caroline Storum, with whom he had five children. Loguen was ordained by the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Zion Church in 1842 and became increasingly involved with the anti-slavery movement, working with other abolitionists, including Frederick Douglass, on the lecture circuit. Loguen publicly denounced the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law and swore to defy it. He even advertised himself as a prominent Underground Railroad conductor in an April 1855 issue of Frederick Douglass' Paper, writing "that the Underground Railroad was never doing a better business than at present. . . . I speak officially, as the agent and keeper of an Underground Railroad Depot." Loguen served as pastor of Zion Church in Binghamton, New York, in the early 1860s, and after the Civil War became act … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hello, We are offering a chance to own a very rare 1859 Fairbanks Pocket Atlas of the United States. Included in this compact atlas is a miniature Railway Guide with illustrations and descriptions of Fairbanks standard platform and counter scales. On researching it is claimed that there are less than 10 known to exist, and this is hardly surprising due the the delicate nature of the binding, and it's "pocket size". The condition can be seen in the photographs, the curled corners, jagged edges with some pencil marks on the front cover and page 14. However it is still holding together with string, and is complete with it's cover. There is advertising on the front and back inner pages, an introduction, table of contents, and a note to the public on the first five pages followed by 59 numbered pages. The dimensions of the little gem is 4" x 6". The combination of maps and scale information is quite unusual, and would appeal to both map and Railway enthusiasts. If you have any questions, please do ask. We will ship this securely and insure it for you. Thank you for looking! Seller note: 247.
