George Meredith
London: 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. Half-leather (leather spine and corners) and pebbled cloth covered boards, five raised spine bands, embossed gilt titling to spine, marbled page edges, marbled endpapers, 4.5x7.5". Pagination: iv, 303; iv, 348; iv, 395. Bookplate of STEPHEN EATON ELAND on the front pastedown of each volume. Condition: Covers are rubbed and scraped at the spine ends, corner tips and edges of the leather, and are sunned at the margins, but remain sturdy and handsome; the top page edges have darkened; Volume I is lacking a blank prelim page (blank prelim page before the title page), otherwise all volumes are complete; there is substantial foxing to the first and last few pages of each volume, otherwise there is only a bit of foxing here and there; other than the foxing on the first and last few pages, the inner pages are complete, tight, bright, clean and unmarked.

Grunweirs En 1836, dentro del proyecto mundial de las Sociedades bíblicas de llevar la palabra de la Biblia a todos los pueblos del mundo y para ello editarla en tantas lenguas como fuera posible, la Nederlandsch Bijbelgenootschap (Sociedad biblica neerlandesa) instaló una de sus misiones en Rheinesche, Kalimantan, Borneo central. Hacia 1839 fue enviado como misionero August Hardeland, quien con el tiempo fue convirtiéndose en lingüista, publicando en 1858 una gramática del Dayak y en 1859, este fantástico diccionario y las traducciones al Dayak del viejo y del nuevo testamento.La lengua que estudió Hardeland ya no es denominada Dayak, puesto que las lenguas Dayak son múltiples, formando una familia lingüistica con muchas diferencias. De este modo, la que estudió Hardeland es la hoy denominada Ngaju, la hablada por el pueblo del mismo nombre.

S Augustus Mitchell
Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, 1859. Large hand-colored wall map on rods, approx. 64" square, with 4 engraved vignettes, 3 inset maps (2 of the world, and 1 of the Sandwich Islands), all within an elaborate floral border; some infill along the margins, slight loss in the population tables at the bottom, and several cracks in the paper, the whole neatly and professionally backed with linen; overall appearance is certainly very good or better, with the usual small defects. America as it was on the eve of the Civil War. OCLC records examples from 1856, 1857, 1858, 1860 and 1861, but not this. Unusual features of this map include the Shoshone Territory (what is now mostly Idaho), Colona (now part of Colorado), the unusually large Nebraska, the horizontal Utah and New Mexico, and the unusually small Dakotas.

Fuhlrott, Johann Carl
1859. Erster Druck. - PMM 342 - NDB V, 724 - Der erste Druck des Berichts über die Entdeckung des später nach dem Fundort benannten "Neandertalers. Fuhlrott vertritt in vorliegendem Bericht die Ansicht, dass es sich bei dem Schädelfund aus einer Grotte im Neandertal nicht um ein pathologisches Exemplar, sondern um die Überreste eines gesunden Menschen einer alten Rasse handelt, die sich erheblich von allen neueren Rassen unterscheidet. "Lange Zeit glaubte man nicht recht an das Alter der Knochen. Virchow und andere waren überzeugt, daß diese seltsame Hirnschale die eines Idioten war, ... nur langsam fand dieser Fund seine Anerkennung. (Bücher, die die Welt verändern, S. 622). - First edition. - PMM 342 - Modern half calf. - Johann Karl (Carl) Fuhlrott (1804-1877), German scienceteacher & human palaeontologist, received an assortiment of fossilized bones found by two quarry workers in the Feldhofer cave of the Neander Valley in august 1856. He studied the specimens and began to suspect that they were the remains of an ancient and primitive form of human being. A preliminary decription of the fossils was presented at the Lower Rhine Medical and Natural History Society, where "Rudolf Virchow and Carter Blake dismissed the bones as the remains of an idiot ravaged by rickets in youth and arthritis in later life. They refused to credit any great age to them (D.S.B. V, 206). Finally in 1860, Fuhlrott could show his fossils to Sir Charles Lyell, who stated that the specimens were authentically human, named aft er the finding place Homo neanderthalensis.

BAUDELAIRE Charles (1821-1867). Poète français. Lettre autographe signée « C.B. », 15 décembre (1859), à son éditeur Auguste Poulet-Malassis, 1 page in-8, adresse avec timbre. Intéressante lettre de Charles Baudelaire à son éditeur au sujet notamment de ses traductions d'Edgar Allan Poe. « J'ai reçu le salaire de l'opium... » « Vous ne vous donnez même pas la satisfaction banale des reproches. Vous êtes un Ami parfaitement généreux, et d'une manière absolue, en toute circonstance, si désagréable qu'elle soit, vous pouvez compter sur mon dévouement. Mais vous oubliez dans votre départ précipité, de me renvoyer, tout signé de vous, le reçu qui implique à la fois que j'ai reçu le salaire de l'opium, et que je vous l'ai transmis. Or, je dîne demain soir chez De Calonne, et la première chose qu'il va me demander, c'est si j'ai ce reçu. Quel est donc ce nouveau malheur ? Nous aurons à discuter l'opportunité d'un procès à faire (pour moi) à Michel Lévy. Il s'agit des Notices, du Corbeau, de l'Ange du bizarre, d'Eleonora, et d'Evènement à Jérusalem. Demain je verrai Pincebourde. Répondre vite. C.B. ». Dans cette lettre, Baudelaire évoque avec l'expression « salaire de l'opium »son texte « Enchantements et tortures de L'opium » qui paraîtra quelques semaines plus tard dans La Revue Contemporaine du 15 janvier 1860 ; revue dirigée par Alphonse de Calonne. Texte qui au demeurant intègrera son ouvrage Les Paradis artificiels. Baudelaire mentionne aussi ses ennuis judiciaires avec l'éditeur Michel Lévy qui refusait de permettre la réimpression de ses travaux sur Edgar Allan Poe.

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]

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]

n.p., n.d. but Japan: n.p., n.d. [but Japan: 1859. An interesting and instructive look at how the Japanese learned English in the generation following Admiral Perry's opening of Japan. 2 volumes in 1, oblong 8vo, approx. 198 french-fold pages sewn in the Japanese manner in contemporary and almost certainly original brown paper wrappers; minor working and wear, but in all a very good and striking example of a Japanese student's workbook for the attainment of English. The book has apparently been copied from American primers published by A. S. Barnes in New York in 1857, and Sargent's School Primer, Boston, 1859; both contain a variety of reading and spelling lessons "especially adapted to the capacity and taste of young children. It is hoped that it will proved [sic] valuable introduction to the national series of school readers prepared by Richard G. Parker." Both Parker's and Sargent's primers were available in bi-lingual editions in the Japanese market. Might this be the manuscript from which a printer might have used to publish the Japanese editions? Throughout, the English text, which has been carefully written in ink, is often translated interlinearly in red ink with Japanese characters creating an attractive visual appearance on the page. Included are 3 pages of alphabets, simple sentences, often in rhyme ("A cart for me / to ride and see / A ship at sea / with you and me." An interesting and instructive look at how the Japanese learned English in the generation following Admiral Perry's opening of Japan.

James Payn 1859.
A tough one to describe but here goes... This book was published in new York in 1859 by the D. Appleton & Company Publishers. It was authored by James Payn, an English Novelist born in Cheltenham, England on February 28th 1830. This book is his very first novel, "The Foster Brothers". What I feel makes this book beyond "special" is the fact that it was owned by a Civil War Soldier, John Weber, who signed his name and Infantry Unit number and address inside the front cover. Yes, it's difficult to read in the photograph here, but in person, easily seen...but not deciphered as to it being the 18th or the 19th Infantry. You will clearly see his name as signed inside the cover, the shortened version of Infantry as..."Infty" as well as, "Fort Trumbull, New London, Ct" and believe me, it took me a while to figure out what John Weber wrote on the inside cover. he was obviously a Civil War Soldier, stationed in Ct. at Fort Trumbull and in researching I did find John J. Weber, a private in Company K, a Missouri 2nd Volunteer, this may be the John Weber that once owned this book and wrote his name in it, but I can't guarantee that. This book is being offer here as an "Antiquarian Book" with a notation inside by a Civil War Soldier. It has some foxing within it, nothing that would scare off a rat, and in general, is in nice condition, a solid and secure spine...all 405 pages are secure and very clearly readable. This book measures 7-1/2' tall by 5" in width. OF NOTE: There is writing and what may be another signature inside the back cover, I can't make it out but it may be of some impo … [Click Below for Full Description]

"On Liberty" by John Stuart Mill. Published in 1859 by John W. Parker and Son in London. Second edition, as stated on the title page. The book measures approximately 7.75" x 5.25", and is 207 pages long, with an additional 8 pages of advertisements. The book is in good minus condition. Moderate wear and staining to the brown cloth boards. Tearing and chipping to the cloth on the spine. The book is a little cocked with an overbite. Underlining and notations in pen and pencil throughout the text. Previous owner's bookplate (Louis Blake Duff) on the front pastedown. Pen inscription on the front endpaper and preface. Ownership signatures penned on the title page. A key work by Mill, partially based on Utilitarian doctrine, remarkable for establishing philosophically the virtue of the liberty of the individual as an absolute good for the community as a whole, rather than simply as a relative virtue, in relation to tyranny and oppression. In large part, the modern liberal concept of democracy depends on the ethical theory expressed by Mill; much of what we now consider innate to our belief in democratic rule and the appropriate limits of the power of government over the individual was first articulated in these pages.

John Horton Slaughter
Texas, Kentucky: Important, Rare, Handwritten Letter by JOHN HORTON SLAUGHTER (aka TEXAS JOHN SLAUGHTER, SHERIFF SLAUGHTER, JOHN H. SLAUGHTER), written in 1859 when he was only 18 years old. Single Page Handwritten Letter, single sheet, light blue laid paper with a nickel size blind embossed emblem at the upper right corner, approximately 7.75 x 12 inches. GOOD condition, several folds where the letter was probably folded to fit into a small envelope (NO envelope is present), very small holes where a couple folds intersect, a few ink stains on the blank back side, otherwise solid with writing that is fully legible. Folded is how the letter was preserved and is its normal state. The letter was written to John H. Slaughter's 22 year old friend and trusted horse selling partner JOHN B. LINDSEY, of Frankfort, Kentucky. (The Lindsey / Lindsay family is an old and prominent Kentucky family, as are its relations.) The contents of the letter seem to indicate a familial relationship of some sort between the Slaughter and Lindsey family lines. This pre Civil War letter written at the age of 18 is by far the earliest letter of JOHN HORTON SLAUGHTER that I have seen. It gives a glimpse of his life and ambitions that have rarely, if ever, been recorded. The letter reads in great part: "(??) August 24, 1859. / Dear John / Yours of the 8th has been received and the draft for $500 which was very acceptable. You say you have not heard from me in a long time. I answered your other letter acknowledging the receipt of the other draft & your Aunt also wrote in it making a long letter. I hope yo … [Click Below for Full Description]

First Edition,Original Binding Overall Condition: Fair This book weighs 0.75 KG when packed Australia Postage: £ Free UK Postage: £ 3.99 US Postage: £ 19.99 EU Postage: £ 15.99 European Postage: £ 16.99 Asia Postage: £ 21.99 Worldwide Postage: £ 25.99 DESCRIPTION Not seen at auction since 1983. Samuel Smiles (23 December 1812 - 16 April 1904), was a Scottish author and reformer. The origins of this work, Smiles' most famous, lay in a speech he gave in March 1845 in response to a request by a Mutual Improvement Society, published as The Education of the Working Classes. Routledge rejected publishing Self-Help in 1855. Twenty years later Smiles was seated next to George Routledge at a dinner, and he said to him: "And when, Dr. Smiles, are we to have the honour of publishing one of your books?" Smiles replied that Mr. Routledge had had the honour of rejecting Self-Help. Although John Murray was willing to publish Self-Help on a half-profits system, Smiles rejected this as he did not want the book to lose its anecdotes. In 1859 he published the book at his own expense and risk, retaining the copyright and paying John Murray ten per cent. commission. It sold 20,000 copies within one year of its publication. Bound by Edmonds and Remnants of London, with a binder's label to rear pastedown. Publisher's catalogue … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

ROBERTSON, H. Dundas.
London: Smith, Elder and Co., 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. 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. With 1 fold out map of Saharunpore and environs. 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. Sorsky 912.

Lettera dedicata al "caso di Sainte-Beuve / Babou", in cui lo scrittore Hippolyte Babou accusa Sainte-Beuve non aver difeso Baudelaire durante il processo a Fleurs du mal. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Précieuse lettre autographe signée de Charles Baudelaire à Auguste Poulet-Malassis, éditeur des Fleurs du Mal, datée du 28 février 1859 et écrite à Honfleur. 64 lignes à l'encre noire, quelques passages soulignés, présentée sous une chemise en demi-maroquin noir moderne. Baudelaire semble obsédé par « l'affaire Sainte-Beuve/Babou ». Il s'agit d'une des innombrables querelles qui suivirent le procès des Fleurs du Mal, dans laquelle l'écrivain Hippolyte Babou accuse Sainte-Beuve de ne pas avoir pris la défense de Baudelaire lors du procès. Des passages de la lettre furent cités par Marcel Proust dans son célèbre Contre Sainte-Beuve, déplorant la lâcheté de Sainte-Beuve dans l'affaire du procès des Fleurs du Mal et l'attachement immérité que Baudelaire portait à l'écrivain. Le poète écrit à son éditeur depuis Honfleur, où il s'est retiré depuis janvier auprès de sa mère, figure sacrée «?qui hante le cœur et l'esprit de son fils?». La lettre est écrite huit jours après un autre rebondissement dans l'affaire du procès des Fleurs du mal. Baudelaire, en proie à des sentiments complexes, se confie à Malassis alors que le 20 janvier, son ami Hippolyte Babou avait a … [Click Below for Full Description]
