SMITH, ADAM. - [FIRST RUSSIAN TRANSLATION OF "THE THEORY OF MORAL SENTIMENTS"]
St Petersburg, I. I. Glazunov, 1868. 8vo. In contemporary half calf with with embossed boards. Three raised bands and gilt lettering to spine. Spine with wear. Small label pasted on to top left corner of pasted down front free end-paper. Removed stamp to half-title and title-page with stamp and a a few number written to top of title-page. A few light occassional underlining in pencil, otherwise internally fine and clean. (1)-515, (1), IV pp. Rare first Russian translation of Adam Smith's 'The Theory of Moral Sentiments'.The translator, Pavel Bibikov (1831-1875), also translated the 'Wealth of Nations' in 1866, both being part of his series the Library of Classical European Writers. Bibikov regarded the two works as complementing each other, as he remarks in his preface to this translation, "the works reinforce each other. That is why, having published in Russian Adam Smith's great work of political economy, I decided to translate and publish his other work, which is no less remarkable, and yet known even less to Russian society than the first" (p. 5). "Bibikov's translation, probably done via French, remained the only Russian version available until 1997". (National Library of Scotland).Adam Smith developed a comprehensive and unusual version of moral sentimentalism in his Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759, TMS). He did not expressly lay out a political philosophy in similar detail, but a distinctive set of views on politics can be extrapolated from elements of both TMS and his Wealth of Nations. Although these economic doctrines had not been unheard of in Russia prior to th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Henry Hallam
73, 1868. Book. A selection of works by esteemed literary critic and historian Henry Hallam, in lovely full calf bindings. The 'Introduction to the Literature of Europe' to this set is a fifth edition. With a frontispiece of Henry Hallam to the first volume of 'Literature of Europe'. Hallam began as a barrister before he formed his historical career. His earliest work was undertaken in connection to the Edinburgh Review. His first published book was his View of the State of Europe During the Middle Ages. Hallam described this work as a series of historical dissertations from the 5th to the 15th century. He gives the history of several empires and countries such as France, Italy, Spain and Germany as well as the Greek and Saracenic empires. He also reflects on the social history of medieval times through discussions on the fuedal, the ecclesiastical and the political systems of England. Hallam's Introduction to the Literature of Europe continues a topic briefly broached in his Middle Ages. The three volumes give information on the state of literature in the middle ages to the seventeenth century. The first chapter is introductory, sketching the state of literature in Europe to the end of the fourteenth century. He mentions the extinction of ancient learning after the fall of the Roman empire and the rise of Christianity. Hallam also gives a review of classical learning and the works produced at this time. For each time period the work then has separate chapters on literature, theology, science, speculative philosophy and jurisprudence.

Grimms' Goblins - circa 1868 edition published by George Vickers. The penny dreadful edition of Vickers' series of Fairy Books for Boys and Girls, bound from the 25 weekly parts and featuring 22 full page colour illustrations by "Phiz" (Hablot K. Browne), without the black and white illustrations which featured in the earlier edition and with fewer tales. Printed by Robson and Son. 398 pages, containing 98 tales, not all from the Brothers Grimm. The book is bound in the publisher's blue cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt and blind, the spine has been re-backed at some point onto similarly toned blue cloth, the boards are somewhat bumped, rubbed and faded, more so to the spine, with minor tears to the cloth. The text block has gilt to all edges, it retains the original and rather striking colour title page, with the publishing information cropped at the bottom to fit the format, the pages are slightly toned, there is minor foxing and slight cracking and the endpapers were probably replaced when the spine was re-backed, though the paper used looks to be Victorian and they may be the originals. Arguably even more uncommon than the 1861 original due to the even cheaper production processes used.

Mi, 1855. Den Skizzen fügt August Bauer ausführliche Hinweise auf die Tageszeiten ihrer Entstehung bei, diese ist ihm wichtiger als die Ortsangabe, die daher fast gänzlich fehlt.

Bähr, Johann Karl
Dresden, Türk, 1861, 1868. 7 Lfg. in 1 Bd. 1 Bl., VIII, 517 S., 2 Bll. mit einigen Textabb. 100 (1 kolor.) lithograph. Tafeln. Kl.-4°. Mod. HLwd. mit montiertem vorderen OU (gestempelt). Erste Ausgabe dieses Klassikers der Radiästhesie, so komplett und selten. - Johann Karl Bähr (1801 - 1869) studierte an der Dresdner Kunstakademie und war dort als Historienmaler tätig. "1840 wurde er zum Professor an der dortigen Kunstakademie ernannt. Bähr war ein gesuchter Porträtmaler und ebenso wurden seine Historienbilder beifällig aufgenommen. ... Empfänglichen und regen Geistes, liebte Bähr neben der Malerei die Dichtung und ebenso fühlte er sich zur wissenschaftlichen Forschung hingezogen. Als junger Künstler pilgerte er nach Weimar zu Goethe, auch eine Begegnung mit Platen in Italien machte auf ihn tiefen Eindruck, in Dresden gehörte er dem Tieck`schen Kreise an und innige Freundschaft verband ihn mit dem Dichter Mosen. Von seinem wissenschaftlichen Sinne zeugen folgende Schriften: ... `Der dynamische Kreis` (1860?68), eine naturwissenschaftliche Arbeit, die ihn während der letzten zehn Jahre seines Lebens fast ausschließlich beschäftigte" (ADB I, 769). - "... Johann Wilhelm Ritter (1776 - 1810), Entdecker des UV-Lichts und Erfinder der Trockenzellenbatterie, gelangte nach unzähligen Experimenten ebenfalls zum Schluss, dass das Pendel über bestimmten Substanzen fast immer bestimmte spezifische Schwingungsmuster zeige, woraus er ableitete, dass jede Art von Materie eine Art von Signatur trage, die mit diesem Instrument ablesbar sei.

Grimms' Goblins - circa 1868 edition published by George Vickers. The penny dreadful edition of Vickers' series of Fairy Books for Boys and Girls, bound from the 25 weekly parts and featuring 22 full page colour illustrations by "Phiz" (Hablot K. Browne), without the black and white illustrations which featured in the earlier edition and with fewer tales. Printed by Robson and Son. 398 pages, containing 98 tales, not all from the Brothers Grimm. The book is bound in the publisher's blue cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt and blind, the spine has been re-backed at some point onto similarly toned blue cloth, the boards are somewhat bumped, rubbed and faded, more so to the spine, with minor tears to the cloth. The text block has gilt to all edges, it retains the original and rather striking colour title page, with the publishing information cropped at the bottom to fit the format, the pages are slightly toned, there is minor foxing and slight cracking and the endpapers were probably replaced when the spine was re-backed, though the paper used looks to be Victorian and they may be the originals. Arguably even more uncommon than the 1861 original due to the even cheaper production processes used.

UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD
New York: Union Pacific Railroad, 1868. 8vo. 40 pp. Frontispiece map, additional engraved title. Original gilt-lettered cloth, backed with linen. Lightly worn, text slightly soiled. Provenance: S. P. Windmuller, New York (inkstamp on title); Arthur Elton (bookplate). FIRST EDITION (stated "Pamphlet Edition"). Warren Heckrotte notes that "This report is celebratory - they're not finished building, but there's no doubt they will be finished in a years time," and briefly discusses the " Map of the Union Pacific Railroad and its Connection" (10.5x19 cm): "The solid line from Omaha stops about at the border of Wyoming and Utah and from there to Sacramento the black line is shown with white dots. It runs north of Great Salt Lake. The point where the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific will meet is left undetermined. A branch represented by a dotted line runs to Puget Sound. This is briefly discussed and there is a separate report by Gen. Dodge on this possible branch."

The friendship with the family was established in August Bournonville's home, where the poet first heard the young, talented Therese Henriques (1833-83) playing the piano. Immediately, a warm friendship between the two was kindled, and it would last a lifetime. - A tear to the front wrapper repaired, otherwise fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Blake, William.
1868. London: John Camden Hotten, 1868. 4to, 27 hand-coloured plates over lithographs, printed on paper replicating Blake's original supply. Rebound in full red morocco with gilt decoration and black leather gilt label to spine, in fitted red morocco slipcase. Very good with occasional pages spotted as usual in this edition but the coloring in reasonably good condition. § The first facsimile of a Blake book (excepting only a few selections in monochrome in Gilchrist's first edition of the Life). Limited to 150 copies, this facsimile is rarely found in acceptable condition as the watercolor usually turns almost black and the paper tends to fox badly. In this copy the foxing is almost completely absent from the images though quite noticeable in the margins and at the front and back. The facsimile is from copy F, now at the Pierpont Morgan Library. The limitation is derived from Hotten's ledger sheets as cited by Paley (Hotten, Swinburne, and the Blake Facsimiles of 1868... NYPL, 1976.). Bentley, BB, 99. Keynes 210.

There is grandeur in this view of life .... from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved. Here we offer a very early edition of Charles Darwin's classic, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, (complete with tri-fold-out exhibit) published by D. Appleton and Co., New York, in 1868. This is the very rare fourth edition, published before the phrase "survival of the fittest" was added to the text and before the "On" was removed from the title. Book has been reblocked and rebound with matching acid-free patches over hinges at end-paper gutters, remnants of original spine cloth reapplied atop new brown spine cloth, and a new placeholding ribbon. Period inscription over the top of the title page. Very tight and square binding. Pulp is overall a bit stiff but quite durable with very bright and crisp text. Fold-out is in great shape. Measures approximately 5.5 x 8-inches; 440 indexed pages, plus 2 pages of ads. This very rare relic of scientific history will make a beautiful centerpiece to any rare books collection, a canny investment, or a very thoughtful and special gift. ** Have you seen all the amazing first and rare editions of iconic books we offer?

The following information about Didot is from Wikipedia: Firmin Didot was born in Paris into a family of printers founded by François Didot, the father of 11 children. Firmin was one of his grandchildren. The family's paper manufactory was located at Essonnes, a town c. 30 km southeast of Paris near Corbeil, which had notable paper factories. Work Didot invented the word "stereotype", which in printing refers to the metal printing plate created for the actual printing of pages (as opposed to printing pages directly with movable type), and used the process extensively, revolutionizing the book trade by his cheap editions. His manufactory was a place of pilgrimage for the printers of the world. He first used the process in his edition of Callet's Tables of Logarithms (1795), in which he secured an accuracy till then unattainable. He published stereotyped editions of French, English and Italian classics at a very low price.[1] He was also the author of two tr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dampstaining to fore edge but all writing is legible. Classy manuscript title page in a flourishing hand , "Way Bills Sent from Columbia Office of Wells Fargo & Co." Maybe not the prettiest exterior but who cares with such fantastic content. Original Wells Fargo Express Waybill ledger book kept by Columbia, CA Wells Fargo agent William Daegener, spanning June 1,1868 to July 27, 1870. William Daegener built the third Wells Fargo office in Columbia, CA a fire-resistant two-story brick building with fireproof iron shutters in 1858. The building remains today, part of Columbia State Historic Park. Not only did Wells Fargo handle freight, but their agents also bought gold dust under their own names as their own private business.

Webster, Daniel
Washington DC: Gideon. First edition, presentation copy to W. E. Robinson from his friend Dan'l Webster. Wraps bound into recent half morocco gilt, with additional signature of Webster appended to front wrap, and with additional note from 1868 on Connecticut Courant letterhead from Robinson to a Mr. Sanborn asking him to send his semi-weekly columns to his Walden address rather than a former one. He also makes mention of Sanborn's latest article and how it will be interesting to a number of readers. This same copy, minus the additional material, was sold at Sotheby's in 1985 for a total of $522 including buyer's commission. The Rhode Island Question centered on Dorr's Rebellion of 1841-42, which was a populist rebellion to change antiquated electoral laws in Rhode Island that dated back to 1663 requiring voters to own land, which in addition to later laws requiring voters to be white and have at least $134 to their name, made for widespread disenfranchisement.
