        The comic history of England.

      London: Published at the Punch Office, 1846–48. 8vo (22 cm, 8.75"). 20 monthly parts in 19. Original parts issue of this playfully expounded yet actually generally accurate English history, written by one of the original staff members of Punch. John Leech's famous illustrations, including => 20 hand-colored plates as well as 120 in-text steel engravings and woodcuts, feature Abbott à Beckett's historic figures portrayed with amusing contemporary touches; e.g., William the Conqueror has a handlebar moustache, a portrait of a medieval king being medically treated features patent medicine placards in the background, and Henry VIII wears an opera hat a-Maying while his queen on the occasion carries a pink parasol. In all, of course, as was to be the case also with this duo's Comic History of Rome, the history/"history" comments on the readers' own time.    These parts (i.e., fascicles) were published between July 1846 and February 1848 and the expectation was that the purchasers of the parts would have them bound when the last part was received. Consequently half-titles (printed in red), title-pages (printed in red and black), and preliminaries were printed at the end of parts 11 and 19–20, and are present here.    Comparing this set of parts to Field's collation we find one ad slip lacking in No. 19/20, but an extra (uncalled-for) one in No. 4. Four of the wrappers (Nos. 1, 2, 18, 19/20) contain different ads than those specified by Field, but clearly these are original and authentic (possibly states of the wrappers?).         Tooley, Coloured Plates (1979 ed.), 295–96; Field, John Leech on My Shelves, 130–37; Ray, Illustrator and the Book in England, 136. The condition of the set is remarkably fine: The first part has only the slightest wear at its extremities, but otherwise there is virtually no wear or soiling to the set. Housed in a quarter dark red morocco open-back slipcase with raised bands and an inner chemise, with some abrading to the slipcase.

        Voyages et découvertes des Compagnons de Colomb. - SIGNED BOOK FROM THE LIBRARY OF PAUL CEZANNE

Translated by Henri Lebrun. 12mo. 288 pp. Five engraved plates. Ornate gold and blue decorative binding, enclosed in a newer archival box in blue cloth with leather labels on the spine. Original binding rubbed, damage to the boards, and two large stains to the binding and lower edge of the block; one loose page; foxing throughout; otherwise structurally sound and in good condition. As a young man, Cézanne had a great affinity for literature, winning several prizes and often writing letters in verse to Zola and to his classmates. He remained enamored of literature and poetry for his whole life, famously identifying himself with Frenhofer in Balzac's Le Chef-d'oeuvre inconnu: "Frenhofer, c'est moi!" He also encouraged young writers such as Joachim Gasquet, Léo Larguier, and Germain Nouveau.

        GyckleJösse, Skotten och Majasofia på åbron i Värnamo.

      Olja på plåt. 23,8 × 35 cm. Osignerad. Möjligen målad i samband med att Zoll för 100 riksdaler utförde altarmålningen i den nybyggda Voxtorps kyrka i Värnamo pastorat. Den ersatte en medeltidkyrka som blivit för liten för församlingens behov och Zolls målning skall vara utförd 1846. Med två mycket nötta och tejplagade intyg bevarade a tergo: "Undertecknad har sett omstående tavla målad på koppar och föreställande tre Värnatyper på 1840-50-talen, och är den enligt min mening ett ungdomsarbete [!] av folklivsmålaren Kilian Zoll (f. 1818, d. 1860), vilken på sina resor i Skåne, Halland, Småland etc ofta brukade uppsöka och avmåla mera originella typer. Stockholm 26/11-36 / August Hahr".Det andra anonymt, maskinskrivet: "Denna tavla är säkerligen målad av Artisten [Kilian] Zoll, som [på] 1840/50 talet besökte Wernamo, där han målade flera porträtt av köpingens innevånare. Tavlan återger mycket träffande tre avsigkomna original på Wernmo [!] åbro, nämligen GyckleJösse, Skotten och Majasofia, mycket välbekanta för dåtidens Wernamobor."Bilden har visserligen ett topografisk intresse, men dess största betydelse ligger i dess sociala dimension och de avbildade personerna. Det är en mycket ovanlig bild - man kan inte påstå att 1800-talets GyckleJössar, Skottar och Majasofior dominerar sin tids porträttkonst.

        Discoveries in Australia : with an account of the coasts and rivers explored and surveyed during the voyage of H.M.S. Beagle in the years 1837-38-39-40-41-42-43, by command of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, also, a narrative of Captain Owen Stanley's visits to the islands in the Arafura Sea.

      London : T. and W. Boone, 1846. Two volumes, thick octavo, original blind blocked green cloth boards, spines (a little faded) with gilt lettering and gilt kangaroo and emu vignettes; hinges expertly strengthened; pp xv, 521 ; x, 543; with 8 folding engraved maps (6 in endpockets) and 26 plates (15 engraved, 11 lithographed) depicting events and scenes from the voyages and natural history specimens, the 2 page Stokes advertisement and 8 page Australian travels ad. in Volume 1, and the 4 page Siborne ad., the 8 page general ad. and the small Eyre slip in Volume 2; occasional light foxing, the plates in unusually clean state; a very good set. Explorer and hydrographer John Lort Stokes' account of this important series of surveying voyages in the Beagle is a cornerstone work of Australian maritime exploration. Having joined the Beagle as a midshipman in 1824, Stokes worked his way up to become an assistant surveyor on the ship's famous circumnavigation with Charles Darwin in 1832-36. The Beagle was then sent under Commander John Wickham to survey Australian waters, arriving in December 1837. In 1839, during a survey of the Timor Sea, Stokes was frequently entrusted with the closer examination of the coastline of northern Australia. He became the first European to observe and name the Victoria River and Port Darwin. He was speared by Aborigines at Point Pearce in December 1839, but managed to recover from his wounds. In March 1841 he succeeded Wickham in command of the Beagle, and later in that year surveyed part of the Gulf of Carpentaria, whenever possible making excursions inland. He named the Flinders and Albert Rivers, and the Plains of Promise. In December 1841, while the Beagle was off the coast of Western Australia, Stokes also carried out a survey of the area around Port Grey, a site which had been proposed for the Australind settlement.

A clean, crisp and completely unsophisticated copy. ---- Dibner 16; Sparrow 1; Norman 7; Evans 24; DSB I, pp. 53-4; Ley, Watchers, pp. 407-14. EXCEPTIONALLY RARE FIRST SEPARATE EDITION of the work that announced the discovery of Neptune and finally confirmed Newton's theory of gravitation. Adams began his investigation of Uranus in mid-1843, and in 1845 sent his calculations and observations to the Astronomer Royal, George Biddell Airey, who failed to recognise the importance of the paper. In 1846, Urbain Jean Joseph Le Verrier published his own research and reached the same conclusion, leading to the immediate identification of Neptune by J.G. Galle. Only then was Adams' work published, leading to a bitter dispute over priority (Norman 7). "In retrospect Adams' many mathematical and astronomical achievements pale in comparison to his analysis of the orbit Uranus and his prediction of the existence and position of Neptune at the age of twenty-four. Much of his later work has been superseded, but as the co-discoverer of Neptune he occupies a special, undiminished place in the history of science."

Enth.: 1.: Rede beim Lebensabspruch und Standrede bei der Hinrichtung des Raubmörders Chr. Bannwart von Rüegsau gehalten in und bei Laupen am 22. u. 23. Sept. 1846 von Hs. Rud. Abegg, Pfarrer zu Lupen, und R. Alb. Bähler, Pfr. zu Neueneck (Bern, Jenni 1846 8, 23 S.) 2.: Verbrechen und Todesurtheil über Christian Bannwart von Rüegsau. Hinrichtung zu Laupen den 23. September 1846 (o. Angaben 4, 4 S.: 1 Doppelbl.) 3.: Der Raubmörder Bannwart (Bern, Jenni [1846] 1 Taf.).- Zwischen 1851 und 1873 wurden in der Schweiz insgesamt 95 Menschen zum Tode verurteilt und 38 davon hingerichtet, wovon 16 allein in den Jahren 1851-1861 im Kanton Bern. Dies entspricht mit Abstand der höchsten Hin- richtungsquote der Schweiz in dieser Zeitphase. Unterstrichen wird diese hohe Quote durch den Vergleich mit den vorgängigen Perioden: in den zehn Jahren davor wurde im Kanton Bern die Todesstrafe bloss an drei, 1831-1841 an vier Personen vollzogen. Gleichzeitig verfolgte Bern auch die restriktivste Begnadigungspolitik: zwischen 1851 und 1861 wurde nur gerade bei zwei Personen die Todesstrafe in lebenslängliche Haft umgewandelt. In den übrigen Kantonen der Schweiz erfolgte nach 1848 bei Todesurteilen meistens eine Begnadigung die Todesstrafe wurde nur noch selten vollstreckt. Aber nicht nur im schweizerischen Vergleich, sondern auch im Verhältnis zu deutschen Staaten praktizierte Bern eine harte Strafjustiz: so wurden in Bern in Relation zur Bevölkerungsgrösse beispielsweise rund drei Mal mehr Menschen als in Bayern, das seinerseits einen Anstieg an Todesurteilen nach 1848 zu konstatieren hatte, hingerichtet (Lukas Künzler Sind wir dafür da, um der Sentimentalität nachzuhängen?

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations

      Edinburgh/ London: Adam & Charles Black, and William Tait, 1846. Early edition of Adam Smith's magnum opus and cornerstone of economic thought. With a life of the author, an introductory discourse, notes, and supplemental dissertations by J. R. McCulloch. Octavo, bound in full contemporary calf, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, double gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers, marbled edges. A nicely bound example of this classic work. Adam Smith's masterpiece, first published in 1776, is the foundation of modern economic thought and remains the single most important account of the rise of, and the principles behind, modern capitalism. "The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory...his work is the first major expression of it. He begins with the thought that labour is the source from which a nation derives what is necessary to it. The improvement of the division of labour is the measure of productivity and in it lies the human propensity to barter and exchange...Labour represents the three essential elements-wages, profit and rent-and these three also constitute income. From the working of the economy, Smith passes to its matter -'stock'- which encompasses all that man owns either for his own consumption or for the return which it brings him. The Wealth of Nations ends with a history of economic development, a definitive onslaught on the mercantile system, and some prophetic speculations on the limits of economic control...The Wealth of Nations is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is complete convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (PMM).

A few pencil marks. Very good. The exceedingly rare first edition of this practical guide to medical remedies, the first book published in Chattanooga, as related by Cherokee doctor Richard Bark Foreman. Foreman, whose Cherokee name was Oo-ya-lu-gi, was born about 1779 to Scotsman John Anthony Foreman, an Indian trader (born probably in Scotland, whose family settled in Pennsylvania). Foreman's mother was a Cherokee of the Paint Clan, named Susie Gourd "Kah-tah-yah" (Rattling Gourd). The book is divided into three different sections: part one is on the human anatomy and general rules of illness prevention; part two contains descriptions of different diseases and their treatments; part three has a list of botanical remedies used by the Cherokee. Interestingly, in many instances, the Cherokee name is given for certain ailments or botanical remedies, i.e. "Influenza or Malignant Sore Throat (On-eh-tlah-tsu-ni-sik-wah-his-lee)." Not in the Siebert Collection or any of the standard biographies.

        Experimental researches in electricity (Nineteenth, Twentieth and Twenty-first Series): On the magnetization of light and the illumination of magnetic lines of force; WITH: On new magnetic actions, and on the magnetic condition of all matter; WITH: On new magnetic actions, and on the magnetic condition of all matter - continued

      London: Taylor, 1846. SCARCE FIRST EDITION OFFPRINT INSCRIBED BY FARADAY; FROM HIS CELEBRATED "EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCHES IN ELECTRICITY" SERIES DOCUMENTING ONE OF HIS MOST REVOLUTIONARY DISCOVERIES: "THE FARADAY EFFECT", "THE FIRST EVER DEMONSTRATED LINK BETWEEN LIGHT AND MAGNETISM". "In September 1845, using a special lead borate glass that he himself had prepared almost twenty years earlier, Faraday discovered the so-called Faraday effect, that is the rotation of the plane of polarization of light by a magnetic field. This was the first ever demonstrated link between light and magnetism. It marked the birth of magneto-optics which, through the agency of Faraday's notion of lines of force, was to be triumphantly extended by Clerk Maxwell ten years later."Faraday was imbued with belief in the underlying unity of the forces of nature; and it was this that prompted him to investigate the connection between light, magnetism and electricity. One of his experiments in 1845 was to observe whether plane-polarized light when passed through a transparent insulator was influenced by strong electric fields. He saw no evidence of any effect. Then he switched his attention to magnetism. A variety of transparent materials were placed across the poles of two powerful cylindrical electromagnets placed side by side... but all the results were negative. Then, with one of his own glass samples, the lead borate mentioned earlier, success came on 13 September 1845. The glasses he tried first gave, at best, only dubious results because they were so heavily strained and striated. It was when he remembered his optical glass samples that he found something good enough..."When on 5th November he dispatched his paper, entitled 'On the magnetization of Light and the Illumination of Magnetic Lines of Force' to the Royal Society, the opening paragraph had celestial resonance:I have long held an opinion, almost amounting to a conviction, in common I believe with many other lovers of natural knowledge, that the various forms under which the forces of matter are made manifest have one common origin; or, in other words, are so directly related and mutually dependent, that they are convertible, as it were, one into another, and possess equivalents of power in their action. In modern times the proofs of their convertibility have been accumulated to a very considerable extent, and a commencement made of the determination of their equivalent forces."Faraday proceeded to show that the effect first observed with the lead-containing glass, was also exhibited by many other materials, not just glass, if the conditions were right. The direction of the rotation of the plane ion polarization depends upon the direction of the magnetic field - this is the Faraday effect. And it has repercussions which, to this day, are of great practical value; the tracking of spacecraft is a recent one" (J.M. Thomas, Michael Faraday and the Real Institution).The first paper (Series 19) presents his startling results of the relationship between magnetism and the polarization of light; the second paper (Series 20) and its continuation (Series 21) explain his dramatic discovery on the universality of magnetism, noting that every material possesses an innate magnetic character to a greater or lesser degree. These papers were "the last, and in many ways the most brilliant, of Faraday's series of researches" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).Provenance: Inscribed on the front wrapper "from the author" in Faraday's hand to Alexandre-Edmond Becquerel (1820-91). "Becquerel's most important achievements in science were in electricity, magnetism, and optics. In electricity he measured the properties of currents and investigated the conditions under which they arose. In 1843 he showed that Joule's law governing the production of heat in the passage of an electrical current applied to liquids as well as to solids. In 1844 he rectified Faraday's law of electrochemical decomposition to include several phenomena that had not been taken into account, and in 1855 he discovered that the mere displacement of a metallic conductor in a liquid was sufficient to produce a current of electricity" (DSB). In 1839, at age 19, Becquerel created the first photovoltaic cell, the technology behind modern solar panels.Offprint from: Philosophical Transactions, Vol. 136, Part I. London: R. & J. E. Taylor, 1846. Original printed wrappers rebacked; custom cloth folding case. A scarce inscribed offprint documenting one of Faraday's crowning achievements. Very Good.

        Album à l'usage des peintres ou choix de vingt genres de lettres pour spécimens d'enseignes.

      Poitiers: Gauvin, (1846). Oblong folio. (1), 20ff. Lithographed title page followed by twenty plates containing a variety of alphabets for commercial artists, designed by Poisson and lithographed by Gauvin. Poisson's collection of alphabets, several of which seem rather modern, was intended for sign- and billboard-makers and artists who created various promotional material. A scarce piece of provincial printing that is not noted in any of the standard references on the lettering arts; the dating here is derived from the sole recorded copy at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Scattered light foxing, several creased page corners, otherwise a very good copy in likely original plain salmon wrappers, which show minor edgewear and soiling.
