         China: in a series of views displaying the scenery, architecture, and social habits of that ancient empire.

      Fisher Son & Co. London ca. 1843 - Four volumes bound in 2, 4to., engraved title-page to each volume, 124 finely engraved steel-plates after Allom, some light foxing, contemporary dark green half morocco gilt, a fine copy. Thomas Allom (1804-1872) the noted topographical artist, at a time of increased interest in China, presented the Western world with the most complete portrait of China and Chinese culture up to the middle of the nineteenth century. The engravings show architecture and scenic views, mainly of the South-East (Hong Kong, Canto, Macao, Nanjing, and Shanghai) but also include several images of Peking and Yehol. As well as his own observations, Allom includes some images based on the work of earlier artists such as Lieutenant Frederick White, R.M., Captain Stoddart, R.N. and R. Vaughan. The text was by George Wright, a protestant missionary who had spent a considerable time in China. The work was a great success and went through several editions. Cordier 80-81; Lust 363; Lowendahl 986. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         [MANUSCRIPT] Pair of letters containing reports on the Wesleyan Missionary Society in Tasmania, 1843

      Two entire letters sent from Hobart Town to London, both written in a neat secretarial hand on 3 sides of one folded folio sheet, addressed to 'The General Secretaries of the Wesleyan Missionary Society, Centenary Hall, Bishopsgate Street within, London', stamped in red and dated 1843; the address panels are annotated by the sender 'VDL Minutes No. 3 (original)' and 'VDL Minutes No. 4 (original)', respectively; one of the letters is signed by 'Nathaniel Turner, Chairman', and 'William Simpson, Secretary'; both letters are complete, clean and legible, with original folds. Two important manuscript documents relating to the early history of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Tasmania. One of the letters includes manuscript accounts of the expenditure, income and general returns for the Wesleyan Missionary Society's meetings in Hobart Town, New Norfolk, Ross, Launceston and Port Arthur. Both letters also include a series of questions and answers concerning the upholding of correct practices by the Wesleyan missions in Tasmania. These letters attest to the strong Methodist presence that had emerged in Tasmania by the first quarter of the nineteenth century. The first Methodist sermon in Tasmania was preached in Hobart in 1820, by Benjamin Carvosso. From 1825-1830 Carvosso served as the first minister of the Wesleyan Church in Hobart Town. A Wesleyan 'Society' was formed in Launceston in 1826, and by 1840 there were 14 chapels around the two towns and the midlands, as recorded in these letters.

         Nevadaville, Alt. 9,000 Feet - Gilpin Co. , Colo.

      Central City, CO: Lachlan McLean. Sepia toned photograph depicting the mining town of Nevadaville, Colorado circa 1880s. Photograph is on thick cardstock and measures 20" x 24" and has a cardboard frame which has been taped to frame by previous owner. Photograph is in very good condition. Photo has light foxing near top of photo and on title pastedown; a 2" tear starts on the left edge near the bottom, but is covered by framing; framing has moderate toning and wear; heavy toning and moderate wear on verso of photograph. Contrast is excellent. The image depicts a well-established town with many homes built on the hillside, dirt roads through town, a large schoolhouse, a church and cemetery, and many businesses on a main street. Looking closely one can see foundations of buildings that have been torn down as well as the lack of people in the streets. Although the lack of people is curious, it could be explained by being an early time of day. Tailings, mills and other equipment throughout town speak of the mining taking place. In the foreground a man in a horse drawn carriage heads up a rocky road; in the background snow-covered peaks surround the town. The detail and clarity of this image is enthralling. The creator of this image, Lachlan McLean (1843-1929) , was a known mining photographer based out of Central City, Colorado and produced photographs depicting the hardships of mining and stereoviews of scenery throughout Gilpin County, Colorado. The town of Nevadaville was a gold and silver mining town. It was also known as Nevada, Nevada City and Bald Mountain. Located one mile west of Central City, it was established in 1859 and soon boasted a population of between 4,000 and 6,000 residents. The California Mine just outside of town was a major producer of minerals, becoming the deepest mine in Colorado at a depth of 2,250 ft. It was said to be a rowdy place during that time. By 1900 the gold and silver yield declined and the population fell drastically. Today it is almost a ghost town. Although this image is undated, it was probably taken circa the 1880's when the heyday of the town was over but the mines were still productive. A more fascinating photograph is hard to find. No copies of this image in commerce or OCLC. .

Sur la premier contreplat figure la note manuscrite suivante signée W. H. Bliss, june 1873: "Two copies bought at the same time for 5 l - one of which, with an official petition signed by and relating to the author, and dated 'Santiago de Cuba Dec. 6 1847', to R. Louis-Philippe begging him to accept a copy of the work, was sent to Stonyhurst". Il s'agit peut-être de William Henry Bliss (1835-1911), archiviste anglais qui devint notamment spécialiste des manuscrits au Vatican. Le manuscrit est doté d'une page de titre imprimée.

         Gerf Hassein

      London 1843 - This folio tinted lithograph is from Owen Jones & Jules Goury's "Views on the Nile: Cairo to the Second Cataract". The work was published in London by Graves and Warmsley in 1843. The lithographs were drawn on stone by George Moore. --- There was a 19th century renewal of interest in Egyptian culture, that led Jones and Goury to travel down the Nile. They illustrated the ruins of ancient Egypt, and great influenced Victorian design. --- "Mr. Owen established his reputation as an architectural draughtsman by his superb work on the Alhambra; and his coadjutor Jules Goury was a very accomplished artist, who studied architecture, that of Egypt in particular, thoroughly., The size of the plates is favourable for conveying an idea of the gigantic scale of Egyptian art." (The Spectator. Vol. 16. London, 1843, p. 572). --- The work is in excellent condition overall. There is some faint smudging or handling at the edges.

         Five lines from the end of an ALS, Signed. ?I shall be glad to hear from you or to see you, next week. Always Dear Mrs Hood, Faithfully Yours Charles Dickens.?

      [1843] 1843 - 11 x 5.5cm. Undated. Pilgrim Letters, vol. III, p534. This section from an ALS addressed to Jane Hood, wife of Thomas, is tentatively dated in pencil ?Jan 40?, but Pilgrim Letters dates it to late July 1843. Dickens only made the acquaintance of Thomas Hood after the latter?s return from abroad in 1840 and his review of Master Humphrey in The Athenaeum of 7 November 1840. By 13 April 1841, Hood was able to say in a letter: ?Boz is a very good fellow, and he and I are very good friends? It seems this fragment was written in response to a letter from Mrs Hood to Dickens of July 1843. Dickens had urgently requested that a fund be set up to assist the seven children of actor Edward ?Elton? Elt, who had tragically perished when the vessel he was sailing in struck rocks off the Northumberland coast. Mrs Hood responded on July 27th by suggesting that her husband Thomas could write a poetical address for the occasion.

         An Essay on the Tongue, in Functional Derangement of the Stomach and Bowels; With Some Observations on the Tongue's Aspect in Organic Disease of the Lungs.

      Simpkin, Marshall and Co., London 1843 - Presentation copy -- signed by Williams on FFEP. 8vo. 22.5 by 14.5 cm. xi, 119 pp. Williams was the senior physician to the Essex and Colchester Hospital. This essay provides "some observation of the tongue's aspect in organic disease of the lungs". Williams argues that observations of the tongue in a distressed patient can hold the key to diagnosing the ailment which afflicts the patient. He provides an abundance of statistical evidence, based on clinical observation. He writes, "I was induced to enter upon this inquiry from observing that the mucous membrane and papillae of the tongue presented varying aspects in functional disturbances of the stomach." This title predates Yaggy's book on cancer of the tongue, and Butlin's book on diseases of the tongue, by 40 years, and is contemporaneous with Harris' paper on the teeth, lips and tongue, read before the American Society of Dental Surgeons in 1841. Thus, it is perhaps the first, and certainly an early, study on the relationship of the appearance of the tongue to health and disease. Not in Garrison & Morton. A few neat horizontal tears of cloth on the spine. General wear besides. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

J H Hawkins Atty.”William Henry Daingerfield (1808-1878) moved from Maryland to San Antonio in 1837. 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. In February 1844, he became Texas Minister to the Netherlands, Belgium, and the Hanse towns (the maritime cities of Germany), serving until annexation. Smallwood S.B.”Steamboat” Fields practiced law in La Grange in 1839 and served as Fayette County tax assessor from1840 until his death in 1846. He represented Fayette County in the Texas House of Representatives from 1842-1843 and was editor of the LaGrange “Intelligencer” from 1844-1845.Rutersville College was located in Rutersville, seven miles northeast of La Grange. 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.

         Sermons on the Holy Catholic Church and Its Privileges [signed]

      James Burns, Simkin Marshall, Addisons ,, and Bailey, London, Preston, Liverpool 1843 - xv, 244 pages. Fair condition only, with spine perished and boards all but detached. Foxing to first few and final few leaves, pastedowns grubby. Textblock remains secure. Bookplate of Rev. John Cunningham to front pastedown, with authorial gift inscription to him on verso of front free endpaper. List of subscribers pp xi-xv. An interesting copy of an uncommon work: At time of publication the author was curate of Childwall [Liverpool], in 1845 he was preferred from there to the perpetual curacy of St. Philip's, Stepney - to the library of which he donated this copy [head of title page]. In early March 1847, evidently in haste, he re-gifted it to one Rev. John Cunningham: "My Dear Cunningham, As I promised you a copy of my Sermons on the Church, and as I have not one by me at present, I will give you the one in the library, and replace it. Yours ever faithfully, James Bonwell". It is most likely that this is the Rev. John Cunningham [b. London 1823] who sailed from England on the brigg Queen to arrive "in St. John's after a stormy six weeks passage May 1847" to assume pastoral duties among the communities around Burgeo Newfoundland [Newfoundland Quarterly, Vital Statistics of Burgeo, Rev. H.W. Cunningham ed.]. Rev. John Cunningham ministered there until 1894, assisted by his son H. W. from 1884-1891. The Rev. Henry Ward Cunningham would go on to be rector of St. George's church in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In that capacity he is now most noted for presiding over numerous Titanic-related services and accompanying the Minia (and her Captain his parishoner) on the quest to recover bodies around that disaster site. The deck chair the Minia crew salvaged was given to Cunningham in appreciation; his family later donated it to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax. He eventually settled in Hantsport, Nova Scotia. We are sorry to report that from 1859 the Rev. James Bonwell is most noted for (while married) the seduction of a young woman and the disposal of their offspring. Size: 8vo. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

All volumes in original publisher’s cloth, each book in very good condition, with bright gilt on covers and backstrips. A Christmas Carol in it’s original light-brown and vertically ribbed cloth, with all edges gilt, and green endpapers, shows some slight rubbing at foot and crown of backstrip, with minor foxing near plates, and contemporary owner’s signature to first free endpaper, but otherwise bright; very good. The remainder of the Christmas Books are uniformly bound in vertically ribbed red cloth, gilt stamping and lettering on covers and backstrips; all edges gilt. The Chimes with inconsequential rubbing and a touch of wear at corners and slight occasional foxing near outer plate margins; very good. The Cricket is in marvelous condition with only a little discoloration at crown of backstrip and a stain to the lower board. The Battle of Life is largely free from mentionable defect except some slight shelf wear and a contemporary ink owner’s signature to the first free endpaper. The Haunted Man reveals some shelfwear to the cloth with a small split at the tail of the lower joint and the occasional freckle of foxing, otherwise very good. All are housed in a blue morocco pull-off case with gilt titling, and each (except A Christmas Carol) has a blue cloth jacket. 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 â€

Merryfield, December 24th 1859'. A very good, clean, unfoxed and unmarked set. ----Kress C.6398. FIRST EDITION of Mill's popular and infuential treatise on inductive logic. In this work Mill formulates just five principles of inductive reasoning (known as Mill's Methods) which determine whether causes and effects are connected. This method produced a system which became an important source for all the experimental sciences. Mill's book is important in the philosophy of science, and more generally, insofar as it outlines the empirical principles Mill would use to justify his moral and political philosophies. It had a strong influence on scientists such as Dirac. An article in "Philosophy of Recent Times" has described it as an 'attempt to expound a psychological system of logic within empiricist principles. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

Chromolithographic frontispiece by Henry Shaw. [vi], 85, [1] pp. 4to. Queen Victoria bought this magnificent enamelled gold heart from the Strawberry Hill sale for £136.10 (agent Hertz), and it remains one of the most important early jewels in the Royal Collection. It is said to have been commissioned by Lady Margaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox (1515-78), for her husband Matthew Stewart, Earl of Lennox and Regent of Scotland, who fell in battle in 1571. Walpole's 1784 descriptive catalogue of Strawberry Hill and its contents described the jewel thus: "A golden heart set with jewels, and ornamented with emblematic figures enamelled, at Scottish mottoes; made by the order of the lady Margaret Douglas, mother of Henry lord Darnley, in memory of her husband Matthew Stuart, earl of Lenox and regent of Scotland, murdered by the papists." The present privately printed description was commissioned by Queen Victoria and features a fine chromolithographic frontispiece illustration of the jewel by Henry Shaw.
