Item Description: Belfast; Simms and M'Intyre; London; W. S. Orr and Co. 1846, 1846. 3 Volumes, 8vo. First Appearance in English of "Le Comte De Monte Christo."; complete as issued in three parts of The Parlour Novelist and the first and only translation into English based upon the original text of the novel. Bound in recent half red calf over marbled paper covered boards. Green title labels, all edges with contemporary red speckling. Gilt centre tools to spine compartments. Very bright and sharp. Internally clean and fresh, occasional very slight spotting and a couple of tiny marginal chips not affecting text. A very handsome set, very scarce indeed as a complete set of three volumes. First appearing as a serial in the Parisian "Journal de Debats" between August 1844 and January 1846. The first book editions to be published were unsurprisingly in Paris and Brussels. The first Paris edition is extremely rare, auction records can trace no copy at auction in the last 50 years at least, although a copy of the second Paris edition sold at Christie's Paris in 2010 for a quarter of a million Euros. The novel was a tremendous success in France and there was something of an indecorous scuffle amongst English publishers eager to get their hands on it for domestic publication. Simms, M'Intyre and Orr published the first part of the novel in their "Parlour Novelist" in March 1846; barely two months after the final installment appeared in "Le Journal de Debats." Following the example of the Parisian publishers Simms and M'Intyre published the novel in parts with the first third of the text appearing under the title "The Chateau D' If" as volume 3 of The Parlour Novelist with the rest of the novel appearing in volumes 8 and 9 a little later. The fact that they were the first to obtain rights to such a prestigious novel was not lost on Simms M'Intyre who rather smugly proclaimed their priority in the preface: "In presenting the following translation to the English Public, the publisher's feel considerable gratification in being the first to make known to them this charming romance, the chef d'ouevre of the most dinstinguished of French novelists, ALEXANDRE DUMAS. Belfast, March 1, 1846" (The Chateau D'If, p. V) The Simms and M'Intyre translation by Emma Hardy (credited as being the first English translation in the foreword to the 2008 Oxford University Press edition of Monte Cristo) was clearly based on the original text of the novel as it first appeared in the Journal de Debats. The confirmation of this can be found in two rather minor but essential points of issue; the date of 24th of February in the first line of the novel (later revised to 28th February) and the spelling of "Christo" with an "h" throughout; this spelling was the one retained in the Paris and Brussels editions and was only changed to Cristo for the first illustrated edition (Paris, Au Bureau de L'Echo Des Feuilletons, 1846). The second English translation was the one commissioned by Chapman and Hall. This was based upon the revised text of the novel, with the dat of 28th of February in the first line and the "h" dropped from Christo. The source text was most likely the above mentioned L'Echo Des Feuilletons edition. According to Munro and Sadleir the Chapman and Hall edition (May) appeared after the Simms M'Intyre Parlour Novelist vol. 3 (March). Complete sets of the 3 volumes of the Simms M'Intyre edition are very rare. OCLC records no copies of three volume sets, and only three sets of the Parlour Novelist series containing these volumes (two of which are in the British Library and one in Cambridge). Even odd volumes appear extremely scarce with arguably the largest and most comprehensive Dumas collection (The FW Reed Dumas Collection in Auckland) holding only the first volume. ABPC records no copies of any of the three volumes, and no sets of the Parlour Novelist. A scarce and important edition of one of the most famous creations in the history of the novel.

Flourens and Jolly In an effort to refute Gall’s theory of cerebral localization, Flourens carried out a famous series of experiments on pigeons, in which he selectively removed either the cerebral lobes or the cerebellum in order to demonstrate their roles in brain physiology. The pigeons deprived of their cerebral lobes retained their sense of equilibrium, but lost all sense of volition and showed no sensory awareness of their surroundings; in contrast, those deprived of their cerebellums lost all ability to coordinate their muscular motions, but retained their ability to initiate movement and process sensory information. Flourens concluded from these experiments that the cerebral lobes were the seat of intelligence and perception, while the faculty of muscular coordination resided in the cerebellum; however, he insisted that the entire brain acted as a whole with respect to each of its functions Garrison et al.

Item Description: Printed only for Subscribers by George Barrie & Sons,, Philadelphia:, 1897. DUMAS, Alexandre. THE LADY OF THE CAMELLIAS by Alexandre Dumas, Fils. [Illustrated with] Ten Etchings. (With a preface by Jules Janin and a hitherto unpublished preface by the author).

The Etchings are by Eugene-Andre Champollion and Pierre-Augustin Masse and Drawings by Albert Lynch"; issued as part of the series Chefs D'Oeuvre du Roman Contemporain. Realists]. Octavo, contemporary full green morocco binding (unsigned), spine stamped in gilt (with title and author), with five raised bands; front and rear pastedowns are green morocco onlays, bordered in gilt, with red and maroon scroll-work, intricately gilt decorated with floral design, moire silk flyleaves, pp. xxxiii, 337 (plus plates, and printed tissue-guards), profusely illustrated with 40 etchings by Eugene-Andre Champollion and Pierre-Augustin Masse, reproducing drawings by Albert Lynch) [ten etchings, each in four states, on different paper, including one "finished in water-colors"]. All edges gilt, with a finely executed color fore-edge painting. A scarce publication in the "Edition Magnifique" issue, limited to five copies. Eugène-André Champollion (1848-1901) was a French artist (engraver).

Paris, Barba éd. 1830. EDITION ORIGINALE. In-8 demi veau turquoise à coins à la bradel, dos orné, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Couverture d'origine conservée. (4) ff.,191 pages. Dos insolé et quelques frottements. Frontispice lithographié replié par Charlet d'après Raffet représentant Christine et Paula, non rogné (Carayon). Dédicace de l'auteur sur le titre probablement à Frédéric Soulié (écriture peu lisible).Frédéric Soulié,romancier, auteur dramatique, critique, journaliste français et ami de Alexanre Dumas (1800-1847). Vicaire III, 337-338 - Carteret I, 224. Destinée à la ComédieFrançaise, mais arrêtée par la censure, la pièce ne fut créée à l'Odéon qu'en 1830. Les nombreuses versions connuesdeChristinetémoignent de l'intérêt qu'y attachait Alexandre Dumas. La pièce peut être considérée comme la première grande œuvre dramatique ambitieuse de Dumas. D'ailleurs, la pièce ne prendra le nom de drame que tardivement, Dumas lui préférant timidement le nom de tragédie. Dans ses Mémoires, l'auteur expliquecomment, le soir de la première, VICTOR HUGOet ALFRED DE VIGNY avaient réécrit en partie le texte, l'allégeant en même temps d'unecentaines de vers. Signé par l'auteur. Bookseller Inventory # 1143

Item Description: London; George Routledge and Co. 1853., 1853. FIRST ROBSON TRANSLATION; an important edition. Small octavo, pp.423. Bound in original green blind-stamped cloth, with gilt decoration to spine. Trivial wear and handling, a little mottling to covers. Near fine. Housed in a recent cloth slipcase. This is the second complete translation of The Three Musketeers, following the 1846 translation by William Barrow; the first several attempts being incomplete, and/or unauthorised. Significantly, and it is the first translation by Robson, which proved to be the preferred text for the majority of nineteenth century translated editions. The dramatic, stirring, and romantic story of D'Artagnan, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, and their famous code of 'one for all and all for one,' remains an unsurpassed tale of adventure and heroism.

Item Description: Alphonse Lemerre, Paris, 1873. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Book Condition: Good. First Edition. Publisher's green cloth, rubbed a bit and cloth split at the front hinge. Mild foxing, a little heavier in a few spots, small tear to final page. Frontis of the author. vi, 1155, 24pp. Two portraits of the author. Cagle 171, Vicaire 297, Bitting 135, Oberle 238.Though due to the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian war, Dumas never saw the publication of his great work on cuisine, it remains a monument to a truly bracing love of food - an unlike most of his novels, but all accounts he actually wrote the whole thing himself. A magnificent mix of encyclopedia, recipe book, anecdote and nonsense. He has Jacques Coeur bringing back the first turkey's from Turkey in 1432. Charmingly, the entry for madeleine reminds him of a "petite aventure" that he recounts. On truffles: "We asked the wise about the truffle and after two thousand years of discussion they responded as on the first day: We don't know. We asked the truffle herself and she responded: Eat me and worship God." Size: 4to (quarto). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo.
