         The Story of the Three Bears.

      Porter and Wright, 60 Pall-Mall 1837 - vi, 29pp [10] leaves of plates. Bound in original decorative paper covered boards and illustrated with 10 wood engraved plates by Robert Hart after designs by "C.J.". The book has had a new spine added as the original was nonexistent. The boards are soiled and rubbed/worn at extremities, the rear cover having some juvenile ink marks. Most of the pages inside have minor foxing and marks as this was a favorite children’s story. The plate facing page 14, a child has drawn in ink and added a sign on top of the stair bannister; The plate facing page 16 has a light ink mark in the image; on page 21 the original printed line of text which was ‘By what may not be named’ has been erased and replaced in ink ‘Somebody must be blamed’; the plate facing page 28 a juvenile hand has neatly drawn in ink she heels to the old womans feet and a line coming from the bears bottom; Someone has written ‘!!!Alas!!!’ on the final page. Not a great copy but a very scarce book of a much loved fairy tale. As Toronto Library has made a PDF of their copy of the book I have been able to collate it and all is complete. Please note the binding appears to have originally been as a hard back, myself and the conservator agreed on this. The only copy on COPAC at Cambridge Library has paper wrappers only. The editions found on the Toronto library web site from the Osbourne collection, one has been rebound later and is incomplete, the other copy they have does not mention if it’s in wrappers or hard bound. The publisher may have sold the book either as a bound hard copy or in original paper wrappers. This is the first collected edition of this early version of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. It original appeared in print in Volume Four of ‘The Doctor’, 1837, by Robert Southey. The first illustrated version of ‘The Three Bears ‘story with text by George Nicol appeared that Christmas. In 1841, Nicol’s version was re-issued by Wright with two additional tales: ‘The Wolf and the Seven Kids’ ( a tale from Brothers Grimm read by Great Bear. Having wished the story to become more widely known, Southey was pleased with the success of Nicol’s version. Surviving copies of any early edition are quite scarce. ‘Any text of the story dated before 1850 is a rare and desirable possession’ (Quayle, 73.) Originally accepted as an invention by Southey, the tale almost certainly has an oral history that predates ‘The Doctors’ 1837 publication. In 1951 a manuscript entitled ‘The Story of the Three Bears’ related appeared. It was dated September 1831, written and illustrated by Eleanor Mure and presented to her nephew Horace Broke as a birthday gift. Although traditional versions make the story’s porridge thief a fox, both Mure’s and Southey’s tales make their thief a heroine, a disagreeable old woman. By 1850, the intruder appears for the first time as a little girl named ‘Silver Hair’; and in 1868, ‘Golden hair’. The first use of the name ‘Goldilocks’, which is now universally attached to the story occurs in ‘Old Nursery Stories and Rhymes’, published 1904.

         Clio: or, a Discourse on Taste. Addressed to a Young Lady. BOUND WITH: The Spirit of Etiquette; or, Politeness Exemplified

      Printed for T. Davies; R.H. Moore, London 1837 - First editions of two scarce treatises on good taste and good manners, published seventy years apart, tracing an evolution in English sensibilities. In Clio, published in 1767, Ussher focuses on taste, urging young women to study "the unstudied elegance of nature," and to achieve, through careful editing, an apparently artless grace. In his advice on books, for example, he recommends that a woman share "her sense of great and affecting passages, because they display the fineness of her imagination, or the goodness of her heart; but all criticism beyond this fits as awkwardly upon her as her grandfather's large spectacles." A woman's good taste is presented as a powerful social advantage: "I know a lady of vast address who when a term of art came to be mentioned, always turned to the gentleman she had a mind to compliment, and with uncommon grace asked him the meaning of it; by this means she gave men the air of superiority they like so well, while she held them in chains." Clio was exceptionally popular, going through five editions in six years. Published seventy years later, The Spirit of Etiquette is a less philosophical, more prescriptive work of manners, anticipating the rise of the etiquette advice column. "Lady de S." explains how to greet people of different ranks, which direction to pass the cheese at table, and how much jewelry to wear in public, among other practical concerns: "Do not attempt to dance any quadrille of which you have no previous knowledge." Bound together, the two works embody the transition from the philosophical eighteenth century to the propriety-obsessed Victorian age. Both titles are scarce in the first edition: ESTC locates eight copies of Clio and OCLC four copies of Spirit worldwide. A near-fine volume of two complementary works on manners. Two small octavo volumes bound in one, Clio measuring 6.25 x 3.5 inches, Spirit measuring 6 x 3.75 inches. Nineteenth-century three-quarter black sheep over marbled boards, borders double-ruled in blind, green morocco spine label, spine double-ruled and lettered in gilt, yellow coated endpapers, all edges of the text block of Spirit gilt. Half title and final endpaper of earlier binding retained in Clio, cream coated front free endpaper of earlier binding retained in Spirit. Early ownership slip of Anne Drake Tyrwhitt Drake tipped to title page of Clio. Lightest shelfwear to binding, some offsetting and repairs to gutter of Clio half title, spot of foxing on last leaf of Spirit. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      - Plate VI: 'The progress of intemperance - The Robber.' Three men crouched behind a rock at right, preparing to ambush the old man walking towards them on road beyond at left. Mezzotint engraving with some accent hand colouring on a vellin type of paper. Description: This is an original antique master print published 1837 by Ackerman & Co. London. Our definition of a Master Print is a seperately published print or series of prints, not being an illustrative print to a text. These can both be prints made by old masters (artists) or prints made by others (artists, engravers, etchers) after old masters.Artists and Engravers: This plate engraved by Samuel William Reynolds and possibly his son (since it was published after his death and his son is known to have worked on unfinished plates working under the same name) after E. V. Rippingille. Samuel William Reynolds I (1773 - 1835) was a successful mezzotint engraver, landscape painter and landscape gardener. Reynolds was a popular engraver in both Britain and France and there are over 400 examples of his work in the National Portrait Gallery in London. Edward Villiers Rippingille (c. 1790 - 1859) was an English oil painter and watercolourist who was a member of the informal group of artists which has come to be known as the Bristol School. In that group he was a particularly close associate of both Edward Bird and Francis Danby. Condition: Fine. Paper browned, brown spots and water stained in left margin. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: B35-10 The overall size is ca. 22.6 x 17.9 inch. The image size is ca. 17.9 x 14.4 inch. The overall size is ca. 57.5 x 45.5 cm. The image size is ca. 45.5 x 36.5 cm.

         Memorials of Oxford. The engravings by John Le Keux, from drawings by F. Mackenzie.

      Oxford: John Henry Parker; H. Slatter, and W. Graham; Charles Tilt, London, 1837 - 3 volumes, octavo (210 x 135 mm). Contemporary vellum over thick boards, dark red morocco labels at head of smooth spines, spines gilt all over with a repeated flower-head tool, sides with wide gilt border of repeated leafy pinnacle tool suggestive of "dreaming spires", quatrefoil cornerpieces, gilt turn-ins, yellow endpapers, gilt edges, purple silk place markers (detached). Chip to fore edge of binder's blank in vol. I, occasional light offsetting, a few minor blemishes, very good condition overall and a most attractive set, handsomely bound. 100 steel-engraved plates by John Le Keux from drawings by Frederick Mackenzie, woodcuts in the text, folding map of Oxford to vol. III. First edition of one of the most notable works of the history and antiquities of Oxford University, by the Old English scholar and antiquary James Ingram (1774–1850), president of Trinity College at the time of publication. The engravings of Le Keux, whose work had contributed very largely to the success of the publications of John Britton, were widely admired: "an early reviewer noted approvingly that the publication of views of Oxford's 'halls of learning imposes a check upon future innovators'" (Hist. U. Oxf. 6: 19th-cent. Oxf., xvii). The work was reissued in two volumes in 1847. The handsome vellum binding is unsigned, but is likely Oxford work. This copy has the bookplates, dated 1925, of George Drewry Squibb, then of Queen's College, himself later a distinguished antiquary and lawyer, as well as the book labels of James Hakes and Robert J. Hayhurst. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Verklaring der schilderij, voorstellende de schipbreukelingen van Z.M. Stoomschip Willem I. op de Lucipara.Deventer, J. de Lange, 1839. 8vo. With a small woodcut of the steamship on title-page. Contemporary blue paper wrappers.

      Cat. KITLV, p. 260; Knuttel 27652; NCC (2 copies); WorldCat (same 2 copies); cf. R. Honings, “Indische schipbreukpoëzie: de ondergang van de stoomboot Willem I (1837) als prijsvraagonderwerp” in: Indische letteren XXV (2010), pp. 194-207; for Meijer: Thieme & Becker XXIV, pp. 489-490. Very rare first and only edition of the story behind a painting by Louis Meijer, showing the victims of the shipwrecked steamer Willem I, written by the artist himself. The Dutch steamer was deployed to transport troops within the Dutch East Indies, leaving Surabaya for Batavia in April 1837. It transported 140 men, twice as many as it was actually designed for. After 10 days the ship wrecked on the coral reefs of Lucipara, south of Ambon. After surviving for more than a month on turtle soup and rainwater the stranded troops were saved by a passing ship.The painting by Louis Meijer (1809-1866) must have been made soon after the incident, for the painting was acquired in 1838 by the government for Villa Welgelegen in Haarlem. The present booklet was published a year later and tells the story of the shipwreck and gives comments on the painting. Since 1877 the painting was present in the collection of the Colonial Military Museum Bronbeek at Arnhem, until it was set on fire by a retired soldier in 1958.Slightly frayed along the extremities, otherwise in very good condition.

William Wilkins RA (1778 – 1839) was a celebrated English architect, classical scholar and archaeologist, renowned for many buildings in London and Cambridge. After studying at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, he toured Greece, Asia Minor, and Magna Græcia in Italy between 1801 and 1804. He published researches into both Classical and Gothic architecture, becoming one of the leading figures in the English Greek Revival of the early 1800s. He designed buildings in the Neo-Classical style among which Downing College Cambridge, University College London, and the Yorkshire Museum. He came to prefer the Gothic style in which he designed several buildings for Cambridge colleges, including Corpus Christi chapel which was his own favourite among his works and where he is buried. His most well known work is the London National Gallery, completed in 1838. Lord Lansdowne whose bookplate is on the front pastedown and to whom the book is inscribed by the author was Lord President of the Council during the premiership of Earl Grey to whom the book is dedicated (1830-34).

         The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club.

      London: Chapman and Hall,, 1837. With forty-three illustrations by R. Seymour and Phiz. Octavo (208 × 122 mm). Early 20th-century full green morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe for Harry F. Marks, spine elaborately gilt in six compartments, covers with gilt borders, front cover with circular red morocco onlay with Dickens's monogram in gilt, gauffered edges gilt, red morocco doublures with elaborate gilt dentelles, front doublure in Cosway style with central oval miniature portrait of Dickens after Maclise, under glass and framed in brass, rear doublure with lengthy gilt-lettered presentation to First Lady Grace Coolidge, watered silk endpapaers, gilt-stamped facsimile of Dickens's signature to front free endpaper. Housed in a custom quarter brown morocco and cloth slipcase with cloth chemise. Etched vignette title page, frontispiece, 41 plates by Robert Seymour, R. W. Buss, and H. K. Browne. Spine slightly faded; a superb copy. First edition, in an extremely handsome Cosway-style binding, presented to First Lady Grace Coolidge by the authors of Pickwick: A Play in Three Acts, which premiered at the Belasco Theatre in Washington, D.C. The occasion is commemorated on the rear doublure: "Souvenir of the First Performance of 'Pickwick' The Belasco Theatre Washington, D.C. Beginning Monday evening February 14, 1927. Presented to Mrs. Calvin Coolidge by Cosmo Hamilton and Frank C. Reilly". This is an early issue with the two Buss plates present (facing pages 69 and 74), otherwise all the plates are in early states with page numbers as called, for but no titles or imprints, and the vignette title-page with the signboard reading "Veller" (corrected to "Weller" in later issues). Pickwick Papers, Charles Dickens's first novel, transformed the obscure journalist into England's most famous writer in a matter of months. The first monthly instalment was issued in an edition of 1,000 copies in April 1836. The book became a publishing sensation after the introduction of Sam Weller in chapter 10, the fourth instalment, issued in July 1836, after which the publishers reprinted the earlier instalments so that readers could catch up. For that reason, even in parts, copies are almost impossible to find in uniform first state. By the time the book was issued in November 1837, many textual corrections had been made. Booksellers often list numerous (and confusing) text points that might conceivably apply to a perfect set of Pickwick Papers as originally issued in parts, but all these points could never be found together in the issues in book form. The serial was originally intended to be primarily a vehicle for the cartoons of Robert Seymour, until he committed suicide after the first number was published. Robert William Buss then took over, but he was inexperienced in steel engraving and had to be replaced. The final choice, Hablot Knight Browne (Phiz), was to be Dickens's chosen collaborator for the next two decades. For later issues Phiz illustrated parts IV–XX, re-engraved the Seymour plates and entirely replaced the Buss plates.

Translated from the Latin, newly revised and supplied with necessary annotations at Kievo-Pecherskaia Lavra]. (Epistola Samuelis Maroccani ad Rabbi Isaacum)

      Moscow: V Sinodal'noi Tipografii, 1837. Third Edition. Octavo (21 × 14 cm). Contemporary marbled wrappers; VII, [2], 95 pp. Good or better; light soil to first two pages; binding starting; wrappers torn along spine. Third edition of this famous anti-Semitic treatise, a medieval Christian apologetic purportedly written in the eleventh century, but most likely written around 1339 by Alphonsus Bonihominis. "The author, a converted Jew, collects passages from the Old Testament in support of Christianity. The medieval Latin text which purports to be translated from an Arabic original by the Dominican friar Alphonsus Bonihominis in 1339, had a tremendous diffusion and was frequently printed and translated. Since no Arabic original of the text has ever been found, Steinschneider suggests that Alphonsus composed the letter himself, and merely imitated a different work by a Jew Samuel written in support of Islam after his conversion to that religion" (Paul Oskar Kristeller, Platonism, 188). Specifically, scholars assume Bonihominis was inspired by the Ifham al-Yahud by Samuel of Fez, another anti-Semitic treatise by a Jewish thinker who converted to Islam after seeing Muhammed in a prophetic dream. The work was first translated into Russian by hieromonk Varlaam (Glovatskii) and published in St. Petersburg in 1778; further editions followed in 1782, 1786, and 1827 before the present one, which is stated to be the third edition. All editions are scarce: KVK, OCLC show a copy of a 1827 edition at Brandeis and an 1855 copy at the NYPL.

         Clio: or, a Discourse on Taste. Addressed to a Young Lady. BOUND WITH: The Spirit of Etiquette; or, Politeness Exemplified

      London: Printed for T. Davies; R.H. Moore, 1837. First editions of two scarce treatises on good taste and good manners, published seventy years apart, tracing an evolution in English sensibilities. In Clio, published in 1767, Ussher focuses on taste, urging young women to study "the unstudied elegance of nature," and to achieve, through careful editing, an apparently artless grace. In his advice on books, for example, he recommends that a woman share "her sense of great and affecting passages, because they display the fineness of her imagination, or the goodness of her heart; but all criticism beyond this fits as awkwardly upon her as her grandfather's large spectacles." A woman's good taste is presented as a powerful social advantage: "I know a lady of vast address who when a term of art came to be mentioned, always turned to the gentleman she had a mind to compliment, and with uncommon grace asked him the meaning of it; by this means she gave men the air of superiority they like so well, while she held them in chains." Clio was exceptionally popular, going through five editions in six years. Published seventy years later, The Spirit of Etiquette is a less philosophical, more prescriptive work of manners, anticipating the rise of the etiquette advice column. "Lady de S." explains how to greet people of different ranks, which direction to pass the cheese at table, and how much jewelry to wear in public, among other practical concerns: "Do not attempt to dance any quadrille of which you have no previous knowledge." Bound together, the two works embody the transition from the philosophical eighteenth century to the propriety-obsessed Victorian age. Both titles are scarce in the first edition: ESTC locates eight copies of Clio and OCLC four copies of Spirit worldwide. A near-fine volume of two complementary works on manners. Two small octavo volumes bound in one, Clio measuring 6.25 x 3.5 inches, Spirit measuring 6 x 3.75 inches. Nineteenth-century three-quarter black sheep over marbled boards, borders double-ruled in blind, green morocco spine label, spine double-ruled and lettered in gilt, yellow coated endpapers, all edges of the text block of Spirit gilt. Half title and final endpaper of earlier binding retained in Clio, cream coated front free endpaper of earlier binding retained in Spirit. Early ownership slip of Anne Drake Tyrwhitt Drake tipped to title page of Clio. Lightest shelfwear to binding, some offsetting and repairs to gutter of Clio half title, spot of foxing on last leaf of Spirit.

         A Series of Original Portraits and Caricature Etchings By the Late John Kay, Miniature Painter, Edinburgh - Volumes 1&2

      Hugh Paton, Carver and Gilder, Edinburgh 1837 - The works of John Kay illustrate an interesting epoch in the history of Edinburgh. In the last fifty years of his life few persons of any notoriety who figured in the Scottish capital escaped his eagle eye and he also indulged himself in caricaturing such local incidents as may amuse the public. In this way he formed a collection altogether unique and it was claimed that no city in the empire could boast of so curious a chronicle. Each of the illustrations is accompanied by biographical notes and amusing anecdotes. Volume One, xix, 430pp, 170 etchings, index ix. Volume Two, 472pp, 159 etchings, index iv & xi plus an Appendix of ivpp and a further 28 etchings. The volumes are heavy, combined weight 6.2 kilos. Both volumes at some time have been rebacked, the bindings are tight, the covers are a little edgeworn and there is some loss to the cover marbling. Both volumes carry the book plate and stamp of Nicholas Roundall Toke, Corpus Christi College Cambridge. Size: 275x220mm [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Printed by F. Gauci, 9 North Crest., Bedfd. Sq. [n.d. c. 1837] - Lithograph Image 378 x 300 mm, Sheet 345 x 470 mm A rare three quarter length portrait of Joseph Sturge his right arm outstretched around a young Caribbean girl, pillar with books and a scroll with the word "Emancipation" inscribed on it to his left; the sea and palm trees in the background. Joseph Sturge (1793 â€" 14 May 1859) was an English Quaker, abolitionist and activist. He founded the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society (now Anti-Slavery International). He worked throughout his life in Radical political actions supporting pacifism, working-class rights, and the universal emancipation of slaves. In the late 1830s, he published two books about the apprenticeship system in Jamaica, which helped persuade the British Parliament to adopt an earlier full emancipation date. In Jamaica, Sturge also helped found Free Villages with the Baptists, to provide living quarters for freed slaves; one was named "Sturge Town" in his memory.
