        Fanchette. Se vend au profit de Fanchette

      Paris: [Imprimerie de Schneider et Langrand], 1843. First edition. Contemporary 19th century quarter calf binding with green boards; gentle wear to edges. Internally an excellent copy with original wraps bound in; occasional light foxing and small paper loss to margins of last two leaves, neither affecting text. Octavo collates complete with 31 pages. An exceptionally rare copy of Sand's first work on social justice, of which only 500 were printed. This copy is the only one known to have come onto the market, with none in the modern auction records and the only other held at La Bibliotheque Nationale de France. Having dedicated the first decade of her career toward writing novels about women's internal and social struggles, George Sand made her first move into activism with Fanchette. Shocked by the story of a young girl with mental illness, who had been refused refuge in a convent and was soon after discovered pregnant and arrested for begging, Sand opted to expose the events in a set of letters printed in the Revue Independente. Following a wave of public outcry, "Sand decided to have [the letters] printed in brochure form with the plan that half the copies would be distributed free to the workers of La Chatre, the others sold for the benefit of Fanchette. Five hundred copies of this brochure of thirty-one pages were printed and circulated. The Fanchette case, therefore, revealing as it did an appalling lack of sympathy for the poor and misfortunate, convinced George Sand that an effort should be made to awaken the citizens of La Chatre to their duties as members of a community" (Bowes). This publication marked a new phase of Sand's writing career, which more directly emphasized social justice, particularly for vulnerable women. A rare and important work.

        Vue på Dublins Rivier.

      Akvarell. Osignerad och odaterad. 19×26,5 cm. Monterad på ett större blad, med påskrift: "Vue på Dublins Rivier / ritad af Berger / och skänkt till A. Retzius / i juli år 1843". Proveniens: Anders Retzius (1796-1860), i arv till hans son Gustaf. Ingick i dennes donation till Kungl. Vetenskapsakademien 1919. Avyttrad 2013 tillsammans med andra föremål ur donationen. En mycket vacker akvarell, med fin proveniens. Bergers mästerskap i akvarelltekniken och hans förkärlek för kust- och hamn­motiv vittnar båda om hans skolning i England, som han besökte första gången 1832 och åter 1836-39, då han torde ha utfört denna hamnbild. Berger vistades i Dublin hösten 1838 och ordnade till och med en egen utställning där.Om Bergers konsthistoriska betydelse som länk mellan Elias Martin och senare svenska friluftsmålare, och om hans akvareller och teckningar, skriver Viggo Loos: "I hans akvareller och utkast från engelska, irländska och franska hamnstäder möter man en känslighet i skildringen av lufttonerna, som gör att Berger intar en framskjuten plats i vårt 1800-tals förimpressionism. De flesta har tillkommit, medan intrycken av Turner och de engelska akvarellmålarna, såsom Cotman och Sandby, ännu var levande. [...] Hans plats i 1800-talets konsthistoria framstår klarast i de akvareller och studier, där han under engelskt inflytande når fram till en omedelbar natur­iakttagelse och en målarkultur, som kan räknas till det märkligaste i hans samtid.

        The Order of Daily Service, the Litany, and the Order of the Administration of the Holy Communion, with Plain-Tune, according to the use of the Unified Church of England and Ireland. [The Book of Common Prayer]

      London: James Burns, 1843 - INSCRIBED BY WILLIAM AND MARY WORDSWORTH. Small quarto, unpaginated. Finely printed in Gothic script with red headings and initials. Formally INSCRIBED by William and Mary Wordsworth to her nephew, the Rev. George Hutchinson, as a legacy in consideration of his efforts to secure a position at the Cathedral of Carlisle. Written in black ink to fly-leaf, most likely in Mary's hand. In contemporary dark brown full morocco with raised bands and gilt titles to spine, stamped by the publisher to base of spine. All edges gilt; marbled endpapers. Spine and fore-edges rubbed; very good indeed. George Hutchinson was the son of Mary Wordsworth's younger brother Thomas Hutchinson. Following his ordination, George seems to have tried and failed to secure a sought-after position at the Cathedral of Carlisle, near his family in the Lake District. Instead, he was offered a comfortable rural post in the spa town of Malvern, Worcestershire, through the influence of the Wordsworths. A decade on, in 1853, George left Malvern following a relationship collapse and near-total breakdown, crossing the Atlantic to become a minister on the coast of Labrador in Canada. His descendants later moved to Newfoundland. 'The Telegram (St John's)', 17th August 2008. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        墨合戦圖 Paintings of the "Ink War".

      (Late Edo?). Two charming humorous coloured ink and watercolour paintings depicting an "ink war" on two joined sheets presented as a handscroll, 38.5 x 164cm. Handscroll extended including decorative silk borders and wooden rollers 38.5 x 210cm. Light damp stain approximately 4 x 4.5cm in three places along upper edge, occasional light soiling but otherwise good. This delightful handscroll depicting two groups of Japanese aristocrats very actively fighting against each other reflects a Japanese comic tradition of painting that goes back over a thousand years. The images show the aristocrats splashing ink at each other with long-handled brushes. One even uses a rather ingenious ink pump to propel the ink some distance directly into the face of his "enemy"! Full of energy and humour this is a delightful piece. As mentioned above the "ink wars" paintings have a long history in Japan. The most notable example is the Chōjū jinbutsu giga 鳥獣人物戯画 [Caricatures of Frolic Birds, Animals, and humans] scroll painted in the 12th century and now in the collection of the Kōzan-ji Temple. It is said that during the 8th century in the Nara period the emperor ordered his aristocrats to play with ink. The emperor called this event an "ink fight" and he had a Tosa School artist paint the scene. In 1843 Utagawa Kuniyoshi inspired by the Tosa School artist again used this motif as did Kawanabe Kyōsai 河鍋暁齋 a little later. This scroll has no signature or date and as the style is unique it cannot be attributed to any school however it appears that this delightful "ink war" was probably painted in the Late Edo period.

        A CHRISTMAS CAROL - IN PROSE - BEING A GHOST STORY OF CHRISTMAS with The rare Slipcase

      Chapman & Hall, London 1843 - Originally Published in 1843 by Chapman & Hall, 186, Strand, London. MDCCCXLIII. EXACT WORDING ON TITLE PAGE READS: 'A CHRISTMAS CAROL - IN PROSE - BEING A GHOST STORY OF CHRISTMAS - BY CHARLES DICKENS ~ WITH ILLUSTRATIONS BY JOHN LEECH. ~ LONDON: - CHAPMAN & HALL, 186, STRAND. ~ MDCCCXLIII. ~ EXACT WORDING ON PREFACE PAGE READS: I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book, to raise the ghost of an Idea, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it. - Their faithful Friend and Servant, - C. D. - December, 1843. - This book is a reproduction of the 1843 first edition but there are no other dates or publishers mentioned anywhere in this book. Perhaps this was an oversight at the time of publication. - This is very unusual and makes this book one of a kind. - CONDITION & DESCRIPTION: Carrying Box or Slipcase: Vibrant red coloured with the beautiful Golden-Gilt Christmas garland of holly leaves with the title held within - [absolutely beautiful as you can see] - The box is in a mint condition. - THE BOOK INSIDE: Red covered faux leather boards, rich in colour, with the same gilt garland of leaves and holly, [although slightly smaller in design] and the title of: 'A CHRISTMAS CAROL BY CHARLES DICKENS' - The front faux leather board is lightly crackled at the spine margin front and rear. - The board still holds it's strength and retains it's integrity. - There is more gilt decoration to the spine, which has faded. There is blank tooled embossing around the perimeter of both the front and back boards. Pages are of a good quality paper stock.

        Les chemins de fer

      Paris: Aubert, 1843. Honoré Daumier Depicts Rail Travel in France in the 1840's DAUMIER, Honoré, illustrator. Les chemins de fer. [The Railways]. Paris: Aubert, 1843-44. First [only] edition, complete. Folio ( 13 1/4 x 9 7/8 inches; 335 x 251 mm.). [15, advertisements], [1, blank] pp. Sixteen fine hand-colored lithograph plates heightened with gum arabic. First plate very slightly damaged in gutter margin (slightly affecting title and just touching margin). Plates 10 & 11 with tiny pieces of lower corners torn away. A few expertly repaired small marginal tears, just one (plate 10) affecting image. Publisher's olive green ribbed cloth, covers ruled in blind, front cover decoratively lettered in gilt, inner front hinge expertly repaired. Housed in a custom-made, felt lined half green morocco clamshell case, spine with five raised bands, ruled and lettered in gilt in compartments. Excessively rare with no copies appearing at auction over the past forty years. According to OCLC there is only one copy listed in Libraries and Institutions worldwide: Bibliotheque Nationale de France. That copy is apparently uncolored. Note: according to the images shown on the Daumier Registry website, the examples shown are all uncolored with the exception of the third plate (DR. 1045). The Metropolitan Museum of Art has an oil on canvas by Honoré Daumier entitled The Third-Class Carriage. Daumier painted this between 1862 and 1864. The Third-Class Carriage is a c. 1862-1864 oil on canvas painting by Honoré Daumier, in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A similar painting by Daumier with the same title is in the National Gallery of Canada. Daumier had drawn and painted images of rail travel since the 1840s. This version of The Third-Class Carriage appears to be closely related to an 1864 watercolor now in the Walters Art Museum. The painting is unfinished, and is squared for transfer. The Third-Class Carriage evidences Daumier's interest, as also seen in his graphic works, in the lives of working-class Parisians. Third-class railway carriages were cramped, dirty, open compartments with hard benches, filled with those who could not afford second or first-class tickets. In the bench facing the viewer are seated, from left, a woman holding her baby, an older woman with her hands clasped atop a basket, and a young boy asleep. Seated behind them are anonymous rows of women and men. The painting entered the Metropolitan Museum in 1929 as part of the H. O. Havemeyer bequest. (Metropolitan Museum of Art). Daumier Registry numbers 1043-1058.

A Love Story; The Chimes: A Goblin Story of Some Bells That Rang An Old Year Out and A New Year In; The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain. A Fancy for Christmas-Time.

      London: Chapman & Hall, MDCCCXLIII (1843); London: Bradbury & Evans, 1846; London: Bradbury & Evans, MDCCCXLVI (1846); London: Chapman & Hall, MDCCCXLV (1845); London: Bradbury & Evans, 1848. 5 vols., 8vo, see below for the discussion of states and pagination. All volumes in full dark green morocco extra, covers with gilt holly sprigs at corners, backstrips faded to rich brown, lettered and stamped in gilt, gilt edges: each book in very good condition. A Christmas Carol with its original light-brown and vertically ribbed cloth covers and green end-papers bound in at the end. The rest of the Christmas Books are uniformly bound in matching morocco, vertically ribbed red cloth covers bound in at the end, all edges gilt. Each volume has the bookplate of Henry Sloane Coffin, by descent to a private collector in San Francisco. A lovely set perfect for reading or handling without fear of damage. First editions of all five of Dickens's Christmas books. With engravings by D. Maclise, R. Doyle, C. Stanfield, J. Leech, J. Tenniel, and F. Stone, Thompson, G. Dalziel, E. Dalziel, T. Williams, Swain, and Groves. A Christmas Carol is the high point and the crucial component in any set of Dickens's Christmas Books. Dickens kept its production on a short leash and anecdotes abound about his pleasure or displeasure with the differently colored endpapers, the color of the cloth for the binding, the typography and so forth. Oddly enough, despite Dickens' personal attention to this edition, it is not a particularly well-made title. Coupled with the legions of fans who often read their copies "to death," it comes as no surprise that original and well-preserved copies of this book, in its correct state, seldom appear on the market. The Chimes, written in Genoa, Italy, was commercially more successful than A Christmas Carol and Dickens worked hard to make this second Christmas book a worthy successor. The Cricket... grew from the idea to begin a weekly periodical which would have been called "The Cricket," though was abandoned quickly for a more important venture and the founding of The Daily News. The Cricket was wildly successful, doubling in circulation of both its predecessors. Dickens wrote The Battle of Life during a period of recuperation needed after illness attributed to overworking; despite being seriously indisposed he managed to complete the work, while working on Dombey and Son, though it was not as successful as his other Christmas books thus far. The Haunted Man... was the last of the Christmas books, and despite requiring a final rally from the author to avoid disappointing the public, the book is considered the least interesting and lowest grossing of the Christmas books; the issue of 20,000 had not completely sold when the author died. All books are in their most desirable states, as follows: A Christmas Carol...: [i-viii], [1]-166, [2, ads] pp. First edition, first issue. Green endpapers; "Stave I" on pp. 1; uncorrected text throughout; red-and-blue printed title page, with four color etchings and four woodcuts, full-page color etchings. The Chimes...: [i-viii], [1]-175, [1, imprint; 1, advert.] pp. First edition, first issue. The name of the publishers is a part of the the vignette title page as per the first issue. 11 woodcuts in text and steel engraved frontis and titlepage. The Cricket on the Hearth...: [i-viii], [1]-174, [lacks 2pp. ads] pp. First edition, first issue. With steel engraved frontis and titlepage, and 12 woodcuts in text. The Battle of Life...: [i-viii], [1-3], 4-175, [3, imprint and ads]. First edition, second of four states of the engraved title. Terminal ads announce the publication in parts of Dombey and Son, and the bound volume of Oliver Twist. In addition to the engraved frontis and titlepage there are 11 woodcuts in the text. The Haunted Man and the Ghosts Bargain...: [i-viii], [1]-188 pp., with engraved frontis and title page, and 15 woodcuts in the text. Smith II 4, 5, 6, 8, 9. Eckel 116-134.

He was elected the 2nd Mayor of San Antonio in 1838, becoming Chief Justice of Bexar County the same year. In 1839, Daingerfield was appointed Commissary of Purchases of the Army of the Republic of Texas. From 1840-1842, he served as a Senator in the Fifth and Sixth Texas Congresses, resigning in 1842 to become Secretary of the Treasury in the cabinet of President Sam Houston. It was as Houston’s Secretary of the Treasury that Daingerfield signed this document.

It was the first chartered Protestant college in Texas. The coeducational school opened in 1840 with 63 students. It was the dream of Martin Ruter, a Methodist missionary from Tennessee and superintendent of the Methodist mission in Texas, who had died in 1838. The town of Rutersville developed simultaneously with the college. Enrollment reached 194 by 1844-1845, but Indian attacks, the departure of students for the Mexican War, and the establishment of Baylor University in 1845 caused a decline in the number of students. In 1856, Rutersville College was merged with Texas Monumental and Military Institute.

        Description of the Khanate of Bukhara].

      Tip. Imperatorskoy Akademii Nauk Skt. Peterburg 1843 - Large 8vo. (23.5 x 15.5 cm). Title, VI, [2], 279, IV pp., 3 folding maps; lacking a lithographed portrait, title page restored, a few marginal ink inscriptions. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, gilt spine; a bit rubbed, corners bumped. Great work on Southern Uzebkistan, with very rare plans of Samarkand and Bukhara, as well as a map of the region. The book offers a detailed description of the geography, ethnography and administrative structure of the Khanate of Bukhara before it lost its independence to the Russian Empire. The account is accompanied by three folding maps, including a general map of the Khanate and detailed maps of the cities of Bukhara and Samarkand with indexes of buildings in the margins. Nikolay Khanykov (1822 - 1878) compiled this account following a year long stay in Bukhara as a member of the official Russian expedition in 1841 - 1842, headed by Nikolay Butenev. This expedition was organised and dispatched from Orenburg after an invitation from the Emir of Bukhara, who wanted Russian specialists to introduce the technology required to mine river gold to his people. Khanykov completed a course on Oriental Studies at St. Petersburg University at the age of 21, mastering the Arabic and Persian languages. He went on to serve as a Special Affairs Officer at the office of the Orenburg Governor. His account of the Khanate is brief and to the point, including a description of Bukhara's city gates, mosques, public baths, bazaar, fairs and feasts, as well as its population (estimated as 60,000 - 70,000), trade and academic status. He includes an index of place names and local terms in their original language. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Enten-Eller. Et Livs=Fragment udgivet af Victor Eremita. 2 Deele. Første Deel indeholdende A.'s Papirer. Anden Deel, indeholdende B.'s Papirer, Breve til A. (2 Bd.).

      Kjøbenhavn, C.A. Reitzel, 1843. 8vo. Two very nice, contemporary, uniform half calf bindings with blindstamped square ornamentations and quadruple gilt line-decorations to spines. Light wear to capitals and corners. A bit of light browning and brownspotting due to the paper quality (less than usual). An very nice copy, with the often lacking half-titles. Book plate to inside of front boards. XX, (2), 470; (8), 368 pp. ¶ A very nice, fully coplete copy of the first edition of the work that founded existentialism, by the greatest Scandinavian philosopher of all times, who "is now generally considered to be, however eccentric, one of the most important Christian philosophers" (PMM 314). Kierkegaard's monumental magnum opus seminally influenced later as well as contemporary philosophy and ranks as one of the most important works of philosophy of modern times."Either-Or" is very rarely seen in nice, contemporary condition; when one does find it it contemporary bindings, it is very rarely in good condition.

        Dresses and decorations of the middle ages.

      London: William Pickering (pr. by C. Whittingham), 1843. Folio (29 cm, 11.4"). 2 vols. I: [96] pp.; 38 (1 double) col. plts. II: [122] pp.; 56 (1 double) col. plts. First edition: Not just clothing but accessories, home decor, arms and armor, etc. of the 7th to the 17th centuries, described and gorgeously illustrated by an artist and historian who was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London. Shaw (1800–73) achieved remarkable success with this luxurious production, later reprinted several times. The volumes are illustrated with a total of => 94 copper plates and numerous in-text woodcuts, combining fine color printing and hand finishing. Ray calls this one of the finest of Shaw's works, and quotes McLean as speculating that this may be "the most handsome book produced in the whole of the nineteenth century."    Provenance: Front pastedowns with armorial bookplates of T.S. Stock ("Da nobis lucem domine") and decorative bookplates of William M. Bullivant (1858–1939, an American collector of both art and rare books); most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard; small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         Brunet, V, 363–64; Kelly, Checklist of Books Published by William Pickering, 1843.16; Lowndes, III, 2371; Ray, English Illustrated Books, 64.102. Publisher's quarter brown roan and red paper–covered sides, spines with gilt-stamped title; bindings rubbed and stained, with hinges starting and portions of leather pulling away from the spine of vol. II. Bookplates as above; vol. I endpapers with later pencilled annotations. Mild to moderate foxing throughout, with a few instances of darker spotting; not pristine but still strong, and an impressive and desirable copy of this important accomplishment. This has been a => working set and it is ready to be "worked" some more.
