        De La Loi du Contraste Simultané des Couleurs, et De L'Assortemente des Objets Colorés - Atlas

      Paris: Pitois-Levrault et Cie., 1839. 40 lithographed plates, 36 in colour, some fold-out, 9 coloured paper samples. Several plates signed by Chevreul. The very scarce Atlas of figures, which relate to the text of Chevreul's pioneering work, like his discoveries concerning the chemical properties of animal fats and his invention of the stearitic candle, arose out of his responsibilities as chemist in charge of producing dyes for the Gobelin tapestry works. Although completed in manuscript by April 1835, publication was delayed because the cost of producing the coloured plates deterred prospective publishers. This book, with its English and German translations, became the most widely used colour manual of the 19th century. This delicate volume is all complete, but the covers and spine are soiled, and detached, a number of the plates have splits along the fold lines, and some have spotting. 4 copies only, noted on OCLC. Size - 285mm. x 245mm.. [13765/504]. Signed by Author. First Edition. Board Covers. Good. 285mm. x 245mm.. Book.

        Beskrifning om kusterne vid Östersjön samt Finska viken, hörande till Sveriges sjö-atlas. Fjerde upplagan.

      Sthlm, L. J. Hjerta, 1839. 4:o. (8),191,(1 blank,1) s. & 15 utvikbara grav. plr. Häftad i samtida glättat mörkblått opappomslag, vilket är dekorerat som den svenska flaggan både på fram- och baksidan. Gula snitt. Bakre omslaget ställvis nött. Bra inlaga, men planscherna 13-15 fuktfläckiga. Med Oskar Mörners namnteckning. Från Herrborum. Första upplagan utkom 1815 och den andra 1827. Uppgift om den tredje upplagan saknas. Översattes både till danska, tyska och engelska. Framställningen av svenska sjökort var sedan 1798 anförtrodd åt viceamiralen Gustaf af Klint (1771-1840), vars far, Erik af Klint, även han sjöofficer, under åren 1782-88 utarbetade sjökort över Östersjön, Kattegatt, Finska och Bottniska viken. Under hela sitt liv sysselsatte sig sonen Gustaf med utarbetandet av "Svensk sjö-atlas". Detta arbete består av ett 50-tal av af Klint själv upprättade och delvis graverade "allmänna kartor" i skalan 1:300000 och s.k. passkartor i skalan 1:1000000 samt s.k. kustkartor i skalan 1:200000. Förutom kartor över rikets egna farvatten omfattade det även sådana från Kattegatt till norra delen av Svarta havet. Dessutom utarbetade af Klint flera arbeten, som föreliggande verk, med beskrivningar över de karterade farvattnen, vilka utgavs separat. Julius Oscar Mörner (1816-88) ägde från 1876 Herrborum.

        Copies or Extracts of Correspondence Relative to the Affairs of British North America

      London: Ordered, by the House of Commons, to be Printed, 1839. Hardcover. Good. vi, 400 p. Rebound in attractive blue cloth with leather spine label. Damp stains and ink stains along fore edges. New end papers. Rear hinge repaired. Rough edges and small tears. Intermittent stains from tucked in leaves, especially page 44-45. Spot from 186-9. Page 327 is bumped and torn about 1/2 inch in at the bottom fore-edge. This is the second and much larger volume that accompanied Lord Durham's famous Report. Much correspondence from Lord Durham who replaced Sir Francis Bond Head as Lt. Governor of Northern Canada following the 1837 Rebellion. Much on the aftermath of the rebellion & relations with the United States. It consists of 105 letters from Lord Glenelg, dated between Feb. 19, 1838 - Jan. 25, 1830 in regards to Lower Canada; 91 letters from Sir J. Colborne and the Earl of Durham, also respecting Lower Canada between Jan. 24, 1838 - Jan. 8, 1839; 22 letters from Lord Glenelg between May 22, 1836 - Feb. 2, 1839 regarding Upper Canada; 41 letters from Sir C. Arthur, between March 23, 1838 - Jan. 4, 1839, also about Upper Canada; together with documents from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward's Island, and Newfoundland; in all, 269 despatches. Sir F. Head addressed a letter to Lord Melbourne on Feb. 13, 1839 containing objections against three paragraphs of Lord Durham's Report, headed "Proceedings of Sir Francis Head - Failure of Result aimed at by Sir Francis Head - Real Result of Sir Francis Head's Policy - Legislature does not possess sufficient popular Confidence Exasperation of the People." Head's objections were based on the following sentence in Durham's report which read: "In a number of other instances, too, the elections were carried by the unscrupulous exercise of the influence of the government." Sir Francis informed Lord Melbourne that he noticed with extreme surprise that his lordship and colleagues should have deliberately advised her Majesty to lay before both Houses of Parliament a report containing the paragraphs alluded to, when her Majesty's Government knew perfectly well that they were, and long had been, in possession of dispatches from him (Sir F. Head,) containing unanswerable evidence of the series of misstatements which these paragraphs contain. Head continued in his objection: "I conceive that Her Majesty's Government have made it unavoidably necessary that, without a moment's delay, I should vindicate myself; and I have, therefore, the honour to inform your lordship that I shall this day send to the press documents which will enable the British public to form their own judgment, not only on the policy which has been pursued by Her Majesty's Government in the British North American colonies, but on the -- recommendations which are contained in the elegantly written document which has assailed me." (The Hobart Town Courier, Friday June 28, 1839). Includes references to the 1837 Rebellion in Canada.

The inscription reads: "William Oke Manning Sr/ from his affectionate and grateful son/ the author." Manning's was the first systematic treatise on international law by a native British author. "Manning's book was noticeable for its historical method, its appreciation of (...) the ethical and customary elements in international law (...) [and] for the exactness of its reasoning and artistic completeness" (DNB). A popular textbook, it was cited as an authority in the courts. A second edition edited by Sheldon Amos was published in 1875.

        Writing blanks depicting "The Lord's Supper" [and] "Paul Preaching at Athens', inscribed with handwriting exercises by the same person a year apart.

      [London]: Printed and Published by J. Fairburn, Featherstone, Street City Road [and] Published Oct[obe]r 1st, 1839 by J. Fairburn, 110 Minories. Two handcoloured prints, each bordering calligraphed bible verses, name and date. The first (384 x 486 mm) shows "Paul Preaching at Athens", six smaller scenes from the Book of Acts, and a tailpiece with obelisks and palms, framing the handwritten text of Acts 17: 22-25. The other (375 x 468 mm) shows "The Lord's Supper", six smaller scenes from the Book of Luke, and a tailpiece with arks, lambs and palms, framing the handwritten text of Luke 22:14-21. Both sheets very good with some light soiling, mounted on cardstock; a 260mm closed tear through the center of the Lord's Supper sheet is neatly conserved. Two well-preserved writing blanks, each completed with bible verses by one John Fitch, the first in December 19th 1848, and the second almost exactly a year later in December 18th 1849. Fitch was presumably a schoolboy and these two handwriting exercise rather sweetly preserve his progress from one year to the next. The publisher, John Fairburn, printed and sold caricatures, popular prints, maps, light pornography, and chapbooks in Regency London. "Of Fairburn we know that there was more than one John Fairburn from the same family active in the publishing and print selling trade from about the 1790s through 1840. But there is no doubt that the John Fairburn of 110 Minories was William Hone's main rival as a radical bookseller during this period, before the great Victorian reaction, and that both publishers were part of a small London based coterie of radical Methodists and infidels that grew up around the great engravers William Hogarth, Thomas Gillray, Thomas Rowlandson, and Isaac Cruikshank, and the land reformer Thomas Spence" (Ken Giese for Between the Covers).

"Manning's book was noticeable for its historical method, its appreciation of (...) the ethical and customary elements in international law (...) [and] for the exactness of its reasoning and artistic completeness" (DNB). A popular textbook, it was cited as an authority in the courts. A second edition edited by Sheldon Amos was published in 1875. It is cited in recent scholarship for its relevance to Victorian England and the legal framework of the British Empire in such works as Bell, ed., Victorian Visions of Global Order: Empire and Relations in Nineteenth-Century Political Thought (2007) and Fitzmaurice, Sovereignty, Property and Empire, 1500-2000 (2014).

        A Physical and Geological Map of England and Wales By G.B. Greenough Esq. President of the Geological Society of London. At its Establishment and at subsequent periods: President of the Royal Geographical Society of London &c. First Edition No. 1st 1819. Second Edition Novr. 1st 1839. [together with]: Memoir of a Geological Map of England, to which is added, an Alphabetical Index to the Hills, and a List of the Hills Arranged according to counties. By George Bellas Greenough F.R.S.

      Published by the Geological Society, 1839, and 1840., London, - Greenough's riposte to Smith in the battle of the geological maps Large engraved map with fine contemporary hand colour, in four sections dissected and laid on linen, separate key dissected and mounted on linen, together with, 8vo., xi, 29pp., booklet, original brown paper wrappers, title to upper cover, all housed in original brown cloth slipcase, with manuscript label. Second edition of George Bellas Greenough's geological map of the United Kingdom, here with the rare Memoir (introduction) to accompany the map. First published in 1819, four years after, and in response to, William Smith's seminal map on the same subject, and a key milestone in the history geology. Greenough (1778-1855) was the first President of the Geological Society, and was later President of the Royal Geographical Society. The Geological Society was founded in 1807, but Smith never became a member, although his geological work that was the basis of the map was well underway by then. Greenough had actually been shown a copy of an early version of Smith's map by the surveyor John Farey in 1802, who later attacked Greenough in the press for his "unhandsome conduct" in the matter (Philosophical Magazine). There were probably two reasons for this: personally, Smith probably could not afford the membership fee; and professionally, he advocated a method of differentiating between strata using the fossils in each layer. This theory went against the prevailing scientific method of inductivist reasoning, and was viewed with suspicion by most of his contemporaries. Greenough and other Society members visited Smith to look at his collection of fossils and the progress of his stratigraphical map, and were unconvinced by Smith's method, his claims to have done the field work for the map himself, and probably unimpressed by his plain lodgings (Herries Davies). Greenough decided (as he claimed later) that Smith did not have the resources to complete the project and initiated the production of an official map on behalf of the Geological Society. Greenough's map, with the financial backing of the Society, benefited from expert draughtsmanship and engraving, which Smith could not afford. Unlike Smith, however, Greenough did not conduct field work himself. Instead, he relied on the work of other geologists, including Smith - both he and the Society are on the list of subscribers to Smith's map - creating much debate as to the extent to which his map is derived from Smith's. It is clear that Greenough's work drew on Smith's method of delineating strata, and he does not credit Smith at all for this. There are, however, several stylistic differences between the two: Greenough uses a scale of 6 miles to the inch rather than 5; retains the topography whereas Smith removes it; and uses flat areas of colour rather than the fading watercolour washes employed by Smith. Greenough's map, and its lack of fieldwork, was met with a scathing reception by some. The geologist Thomas Webster called it "so very defective and inaccurate that I was obliged to begin de novo" (Winchester). It sold, however, by virtue of being produced under the auspices of the Society and because it was cheaper than Smith's work, which has been suggested as a deliberate ploy on Greenough's part (Winchester). Greenough was forced to defend his actions later, arguing that the similarities between his and Smith's work came about because both works were correct. Eventually, the 1868 edition of Greenough's map credited Smith for the first time, but by then it was too late. Smith had died in 1839, heavily in debt. The present second edition has been greatly revised and updated by Greenough, and come here with the rare 'Memoir' (Introduction), in which Greenough sets out the various improvements to the maps design and the numerous sources on which he drew. One of the most striking differences is in the use of colour and pattern (something of a pet project of Greenough's) to represent different geological information, in

        Traité des maladies de plomb ou saturnines.

      Paris, Ferra, 1839 - Paris, Ferra, 1839 ; 2 vol. in-8 (21 x 12.5 cm) ; Tome I : XX, 550 pp., (1) f. d'errata ; Tome II : (4), 551 pp., 1 planche dépliante h.t. ; demi-chagrin vert de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, rares rousseurs, très bon état. Première et seule édition du vivant de l'auteur, assez rare, d'un ouvrage fondamental dans l'histoire de la médecine. Cet ouvrage fut couronné par l'Institut (prix réservé aux meilleurs ouvrages destinés à prévenir les accidents et maladies des métiers insalubres). Tanquerel des Planches avait déjà consacré le sujet de sa thèse à cette maladie, en 1834. Cet ouvrage, fruit de 8 années de travail, est basé sur une expérience clinique considérable et sans doute unique, complétée par des expérimentations animales. Tanquerel des Planches présente ainsi, sur la base de 1200 observations, une étude très détaillée du saturnisme. Les travaux ultérieurs n'ajouteront que peu de choses à la description clinique de cette maladie. L'auteur décrit notamment les formes neurologiques de l'affection, dont les 4 formes de l'encéphalopathie au plomb. Il rapporte 101 observations de paralysie au plomb et 72 observations d'encéphalopathie. Il reconnait déjà l'importance de l'absorption pulmonaire du plomb, en plus de la voie digestive, et rapporte les causes professionnelles du saturnisme. Tanquerel des Planches expose les mesures de prévention (masques, consignes de propreté). La planche illustre un fourneau à fondre le plomb et des masques pour protéger les mineurs. Louis Tanquerel des Planches (1810-1862), originaire de Mayenne, fit ses études de médecine à Paris où il fut interne des hôpitaux. Références : Garrison & Morton, 2098: "Classical description of the diseases found among lead workers. Reporting on 1200 cases of lead poisoning, Tanquerel's studies were so complete that later studies added little to knowledge of the symptoms and signs of the disease." ; Teleky L: History factory & mine hygiene, p. 171 : "This work is still very valuable today because of the abundance and exactness of its clinical observations." ; Mushak P: Lead and Public Health: Science, Risk and Regulation, p. 406 : "This influential and detailed report on workers in lead-related occupations was a major benchmark for the nineteenth century and was translated into English almost a decade later by Dana (1848)." ; Rom WN & Markowitz SB: Environmental and Occupational Medicine, p. 955 : "a famous study of 1,217 cases of lead poisoning" ; Beritic T: Spinal origin of human lead neuropathy: This paper marks the 150th anniversary of paralysie de plomb ou saturnine by L. Tanquerel des planches, Am. J. Ind. Med., 15, 643¿656: "Among his ideas, based on a rather unique accumulation of human cases of lead palsy, the theory of the neurotoxic action of lead on the spinal cord is of outstanding importance." ; Hernberg S: Lead Poisoning in a Historical Perspective, Am J Ind Med., 2000, 38(3), 244-254: "The first 'modern' clinical description of lead poisoning. Probably no one before him had seen so many cases of plumbism¿and probably no one later, either."; Wallace ER & Gach J : History of Psychiatry and Medical Psychology, p. 392: "Tanquerel des Planches first described lead encephalopathy in 1839."; Snow BD: Living with Lead: An Environmental History of Idaho's Coeur D'Alenes, 1885-2011, p. 39: "the pioneering study on occupational lead poisoning in 1839. Tanquerel¿s work detailed the neurotoxic effects of lead and showed that lead compounds, especially pigments, posed great occupational threats.

        Original set design for the Coronation scene in Act III of Modest Musorgsky's opera Boris Godunov by the noted Russian artist Alexandre Benois

      Boris Godunov, an opera in seven scenes (or a prologue and four acts) by Modest Petrovich Musorgsky (1839-1881) to his own libretto, was adapted from the historical tragedy by Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, and supplemented (in the revised version) by material partly derived from historical works by Nikolay Mikhaylovich Karamzin and others. It is considered one of the most important of all Russian operas. Benois is considered a seminal influence on modern ballet set and costume design. "In 1901, [he] was appointed scenic director of the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, the performance space for the Imperial Russian Ballet. He moved to Paris in 1905 and thereafter devoted most of his time to stage design and decor. During these years, his work with Diaghilev's Ballets Russes was groundbreaking. His sets and costumes for the productions of Les Sylphides (1909), Giselle (1910), and Petrushka (1911), are counted among his greatest triumphs. Although Benois worked primarily with the Ballets Russes, he also collaborated with the Moscow Art Theatre and other notable theatres of Europe." Wikipedia.. Watercolour and pencil on wove paper. 275 x 370 mm. Signed by the artist with initials and dated 1939 in pencil at lower right corner.

Presentation copy inscribed by Longfellow: "Henry R. Cleveland with the affectionate regards of the author" and with Cleveland's signature and bookplate. Soon after he joined the Harvard faculty in 1836, Longfellow, Henry Cleveland, C. C. Felton, Charles Sumner, George Hillard formed an informal intellectual society they later called the "Five of Clubs." No other presentation copy of Hyperion appears in the auction records of the past thirty years. Although Longfellow was later generous with presentation copies for his increasingly wide circle of friends and admirers, in his early years he reserved presentation copies for his family and closest friends. As a result they are rare in the market.
