         Essai sur les glaciers et sur le terrain erratique du bassin du Rhône.

      Lausanne Ducloux 1841 - (23 x 15 cm). (4) X, 363 (richtig 362) (1) S. Mit 23 Abbildungen, 1 mehrfach gefalteten gestochenen Karte und 8 (1 gefalteten) lithographierten Tafeln. Moderner Pappband im Stil der Zeit mit beigebundenem illustrierten Original-Umschlag. Erste Ausgabe. - Charpentier (1786-1855), Professor für Geologie in Lausanne, verbesserte als Direktor der bedeutenden Schweizer Salzminen deutlich deren Effektivität. Zusammen mit Agassiz untersuchte er die Gletscher der Alpen und kam zu dem Ergebnis, dass die Moränen und erratischen Blöcke im Schweizer Flachland durch große Massen von Gletschereis dorthin gebracht worden waren. Trotz einiger kleiner Fehler wurden seine und Agassiz' Beobachtungen zum Ausgangspunkt der modernen Geologie der Eiszeiten. "The scrupulous care with which he weighed the evidence and described the phenomenon of erratic blocks and the function of glaciers in transporting them makes this book a classic" (DSB). - Vereinzelt gering stockfleckig. Titel mit sehr gut restaurierter Fehlstelle im weißen Rand. Die empfindlichen Umschläge etwas angeschmutzt und mit leichten Randläsuren. Insgesamt schönes und wohlerhaltenes Exemplar. - DSB 3, 211; Poggendorff I, 423 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Octavo. Original green cloth, rebacked with the original spine laid down, spine lettered in gilt, ornate gilt centrepiece to covers within blind-stamped floral border. Gilt edges. Hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece, vignette half-title, and 24 plates with tissue guards, folding map with route marked in red. Bookplate to pastedown, presentation inscription to front free endpaper dated 1886, library stamp to verso of title page. Spine bumped, corners worn, hinges strengthened with linen, front pastedown and endpaper taped and abraded, frontispiece remounted on stub, short closed tear to foot of first few leaves, occasional marking to pages, a few tape marks. A good copy. Third and preferred edition, with two extra chapters, first published in Bombay in 1838. William Cornwallis Harris (1807–1848) was commissioned in the Bombay Engineers in 1823, and promoted captain in 1834 and major in 1836. Invalided to South Africa for two years, on the voyage out he decided to join up with Richard Williamson, a Bombay civil servant, for a big game hunting expedition. The book is an account of Harris's journey, finely illustrated with attractive plates of African game and scenery. Harris's work is valuable as it presents a detailed picture of the South African game fields prior to the growing pressure of civilisation. Although primarily a hunting expedition, Harris covered ground never before seen by Europeans, and discovered the source of the Marique River, one of the head-waters of the Limpopo.

Erste deutsche Ausgabe seines Hauptwerkes zur Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung. - "The book was in large part a treatise on probability theory after the manner of Laplace, with an emphasis on the behavior of means of large numbers of measurements. The latter portion dealt with the subject matter of the title. Some of this material was taken from memoirs Poisson published in the two preceeding years. Only a charitable modern reading could identify a new concept in the work; yet the book contains the germ of the two things now most commonly associated with Poisson's name. The first of these is the probability distribution now commonly called the Poisson distribution. The second most common appearance of Poison's name in modern literature is in connection with a generalization of the Bernoulli law of large numbers" (Stigler, History of Statistics). - Poisson (1781-1840), Schüler von Laplace, war Professor für Mathematik und Physik an der École Polytechnique in Paris.

         Autograph Letter Signed to Abby Dwight Woodbridge

      Concord, 1841 In this tremendous letter on his philosophy of the individual and on writing poetry, Emerson describes for a prospective contributor the workings of his fabled literary magazine, The Dial. Founded the previous year, the magazine was the chief publication of the Transcendentalists. When The Dial failed in 1844, Horace Greeley called it "most original and thoughtful periodical ever published in this country." Emerson writes in part, "... respecting our little journal, the Dial, I have to say that all the contributions to that paper are gratuitous. It was set on foot by a party of friends, & is furnished with matter by them. A very few persons, on whose pen a constant dependence is placed, receive each a copy of the work & no other reward. The occasional contributors have not received even this recompense so entirely is this journal an experiment, hitherto uncertain whether its subscription list would pay its printing and publication. Miss [Margaret] Fuller, the editor, who is to have some contingent allowance from the publishers, has thus far, I believe, received none." Emerson outlines his philosophy of poetry. Referring to "the petty tyranny of my office as poetic critic," Emerson explains "why I did not press my friend Miss Fuller to insert these harmonious lines you have sent me in the Dial for this month." He acknowledges that "I am very hard to please in the matter of poetry, but my quarrel with most of the verses I read is this, namely, that it is conventional, that it is a certain manner of writing agreed on in society (in a very select society, if you will),--and caught by the ear; but is not that new, constitutional, unimitated & inimitable voice of the individual, which poetry ought always to be.... The imagery ought to reveal to me where & with whom he or she has spent the hours, & ought to show me what objects (never before so distinguished) his constitution & temperament have made affecting to him. In short, all poetry should be original & necessary." Continuing this splendid rejection letter, Emerson praises Woodbridge's "smooth and elegant verse" but notes "I should prize more highly much ruder specimens from your portfolio ... which recorded in a way you could not repeat, some profound experience of happiness or pain." The recipient, Abby Dwight Woodbridge, was a poet and teacher in Albany. In a biographical sketch of the poet in A Woman's Record, Sarah J. Hale observed that Woodbridge's "writings are her amusement and relaxation in her hours of leisure, and show much purity of taste and ease of expression." Emerson closes, "You must not, however, judge me so ill as to think me quite contented with such verses as we have published in our magazine. Yet I please myself much with the marked taste for poetry which is showing itself everywhere in the country, & I congratulate you on the possession of an ear & talent which promise so much." This long letter on poetry and individual experience reflects one of the great themes of Emerson's thought-- the individual. "Emerson remained throughout his lifetime the champion of the individual and a believer in the primacy of the individual's experience. In the individual can be discovered all truths, all experience. ... Central to defining Emerson's contribution to American thought is his emphasis on non-conformity that had so profound an effect on Thoreau. Self-reliance and independence of thought are fundamental to Emerson's perspective in that they are the practical expressions of the central relation between the self and the infinite. To trust oneself and follow our inner promptings corresponds to the highest degree of consciousness" (IEP). This is one of the best Emerson letters to appear on the market in decades. 3 1/4 pp. on a single folded sheet with address panel. Small seal hole with slight loss of text. Framed.

         Early Draft Autograph Manuscript of "Excelsior," incorporated into an Autograph Letter Signed to Samuel Cutler Ward ("My dear Excelsior")

      Cambridge, 1841 In this outstanding literary letter, Longfellow writes in full and sends an early draft of his beloved poem "Excelsior," commenting on its meaning and significance and writing out all thirty-six lines. The poet states that the work is among the best he has written, describes the circumstances of its writing, and points out its central theme. He observes that only one person has seen it and that Ward should "keep it quietly to yourself." Longfellow writes in part, "I am glad you liked Endymion, for sympathy is sweet. But today I send you something much better; indeed one of the best things, if not the best, that I have written. The other night, about one o'clock, as I was smoking a cigar preparatory to going to bed, it came into my mind; but as it was late, I thought I would not write it out till the morning. Accordingly, I went to bed; but I could not sleep. That voice kept ringing in my ears; and finally, I jumped out of bed, lighted my lamp, and set to work. The result was this poem, and a dreadful cold and rheumatism, which have confined me to my chamber for two days. The idea of the poem is the Life of Genius; This you will comprehend at a glance. Many people will not comprehend it at all. I send it to you because I know you will like it. No one has seen it but [Cornelius Conway] Felton; who found less than usual to criticize. Don't give it to anyone; but keep it quietly to yourself. . . ." Longfellow met Samuel Ward, the recipient of this letter, in Europe in 1836, and the two became lifelong friends. "Ward was easily the wildest friend Longfellow ever had, and Longfellow's letters to him are among his most exuberant" (Longfellow Companion). Beginning in 1838 Ward served as Longfellow's literary agent, selling his poems to New York periodicals. This early draft of the poem, written two days after the first draft (now at Harvard), differs in a number of points from the final version, including the lack of the exclamation point after the word "Excelsior" ending each stanza. The much-anthologized "Excelsior" has long been among the poet's best-known works. Eight stanzas appear on the facing pages 2-3, making this exceptional manuscript ideally suited for display. 4to. 3 1/2 pages. Silked, seal tear at outer edge of address leaf expertly repaired with paper. Very good.

         Poueisias dioisas de Guste Boueissier.

      Poris, Eimprima per elou d'uno nouvello moniero, 1841, demi-basane de l'époque. -Un papillon manuscrit d'errata collé sur la dernière page de garde. - in-8 de (8)-437 pp. ; Edition originale, premier tirage.L'auteur a fait paraître quelques mois plus tard un second tirage comportant 480 pp. et 41 pp. de supplément tiré également à quelques exemplaires."Boissier (Auguste), poète patois et philologue, né à Die, le 15 août 1802, appartenait à une famille d'honnêtes artisans et fut lui-même tout d'abord tanneur. Seulement, un de ses oncles, qui était alors à la tête d'un important commerce de broderies, l'ayant appelé auprès de lui, à Paris, à l'âge de 17 ans, notre jeune Diois devint le dessinateur de la maison, et c'est en préparant ses dessins qu'il élabora quantité de pièces de vers en patois de Die, vers qu'il imprima ensuite, lui-même, d'une manière fort originale. "Il avait, dit son biographe et compatriote, Ad. Rochas, la patience d'écrire la pièce qu'il voulait imprimer sur du papier fort mince, en caractères imitant ceux d'imprimerie. Il disposait les pages comme elles le sont sur une forme d'imprimerie. Cette première opération terminée, il avait la patience, non moins grande, de piquer les contours de chaque lettre avec cet instrument particulier dont font usage les dessinateurs en broderie et obtenait ainsi des pages dont tous les caractères étaient percés à jour de petits trous très rapprochés. C'était là, sa forme à lui. Il en faisait une semblable pour l'autre côté de la feuille. Chacune de ces formes était placée l'une près de l'autre sur une feuille de papier blanc et il promenait sur les pages ainsi préparées un tampon fortement imprégné d'une poussière impalpable composée de résine et d'une matière colorante noire ou bleue. Cette poussière, passant au travers des trous, venait former sur le papier blanc les caractères tirés de la forme. Il exposait ensuite la feuille à un feu ardent, la chaleur faisait adhérer la poussière résineuse au papier, et les caractères étaient fixés". Inutile de dire qu'il ne pouvait tirer ainsi qu'un très petit nombre d'exemplaires, cinq ou six au plus, et que ses publications sont, par suite, d'une extrême rareté.Revenu à Die, sur le tard, parce qu'il voulait, disait-il, comme les lièvres mourir au gîte, Auguste Boissier, qui avait donné des vers à la France littéraire, à la Tribune lyrique, au Bon Diable, aux Échos sympathiques et au Recueil du Caveau, société dont il faisait partie, publia quelques fables dans le Journal de Die, puis abandonna la poésie pour se livrer à des recherches historiques et philologiques, et c'est enfin, comme il le désirait, au lieu natal qu'il mourut, le 2 janvier 1867.Deux de ses ouvrages ont été imprimés, après sa mort, par les moyens ordinaires." (Brun-Durand).

Beautiful winter scene on the St. Lawrence by Henry James WarreHenry James Warre (1819 - 1898) graduated from Sandhurst and spent his entire working career in the British Army, advacing to Lieutenant General by the time of his retirement. He was also a very talented artist and his greatest contribution turned out to be the drawings he made in Her Majesty's Service in Canada, Crimea and New Zealand.This picture of people sleighing on the frozen St. Lawrence by Montreal on horse-drawn sleighs is one of Warre's earliest published works. It was made several years before the famous "Sketches of North America".Montreal and Mount Royal form the backdrop for this cheerful winter scene, in which Warre, his fellow officers and friends ride, bundled in furs, in their open sleighs on ice so thick it supports the mass of trotting horses and heavy sleds.Charles deVolpi, Montreal, A Pictorial RecordI , plate 81; Reps, Views and Viewmakers... 3760.

         The Wild Sports of Southern Africa; being the Narrative of an Expedition from the Cape of Good Hope through the Territories of the Chief Moselekatse, to the Tropic of Capricorn. Third Edition.

      London: William Pickering, 1841 - Octavo. Original green cloth, rebacked with the original spine laid down, spine lettered in gilt, ornate gilt centrepiece to covers within blind-stamped floral border. Gilt edges. Bookplate to pastedown, presentation inscription to front free endpaper dated 1886, library stamp to verso of title page. Spine bumped, corners worn, hinges strengthened with linen, front pastedown and endpaper taped and abraded, frontispiece remounted on stub, short closed tear to foot of first few leaves, occasional marking to pages, a few tape marks. A good copy. Hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece, vignette half-title, and 24 plates with tissue guards, folding map with route marked in red. Third and preferred edition, with two extra chapters, first published in Bombay in 1838. William Cornwallis Harris (1807–1848) was commissioned in the Bombay Engineers in 1823, and promoted captain in 1834 and major in 1836. Invalided to South Africa for two years, on the voyage out he decided to join up with Richard Williamson, a Bombay civil servant, for a big game hunting expedition. The book is an account of Harris's journey, finely illustrated with attractive plates of African game and scenery. Harris's work is valuable as it presents a detailed picture of the South African game fields prior to the growing pressure of civilisation. Although primarily a hunting expedition, Harris covered ground never before seen by Europeans, and discovered the source of the Marique River, one of the head-waters of the Limpopo.

         The Young Lady's Toilet

      Hartford and Berea: E.B & E.C. Kellogg, 1841. Cardboard covers. Very good. Complete with title page and 19 leaves, each featuring one or more moveable flaps that, when raised, reveal a commendable quality. 19 of the original 21 flaps are present. Card covers; sound binding. Minor wear; some foxing. Dampstain to the title-page and first four leaves. The pages of this children's behavior book show illustrations of objects found on a young woman's dressing table. Surprises occur when flaps on the pages are raised and it becomes clear that the label does not address the physical item, but rather describes an underlying quality or trait. For example, "A wash to smooth wrinkles" becomes "contentment." And "Fine lip salve" is "cheerfulness." Some of the items relate to study and work: two earrings reveal "attention" and "retention" along with the advice, "With these clear drops appended to the ear / instructive lessons you will hear," and an "Invaluable pair of bracelets" turn out to be "industry" and "perseverance.". Toilet books were a 19th century genre of movable books, the first of which, simply titled The Toilet, was illustrated by miniaturist William Grimaldi and published in London in 1821. Rather scarce. As of 2017 no other examples of this title are for sale in the trade, although a number are held by institutions. Five examples, in varied conditions, have been sold at auction in the past sixty years.
