Printed in Chestnut Hill and Baltimore by Samuel Saur
18th-century collection of two important hymnals printed by Samuel Saur in German: the rare 1792 first edition of DIE KLEINE HARFE, with the 1797 second edition of DAS KLEINE DAVIDSCHE PSALTERSPIEL (lacking two leaves) – including four leaves of manuscript material by an early owner.
First collected edition, featuring Adam of Bremen's chronicle of peoples from the Old North and the earliest known mention of the Vikings discovery of North America, of three key works in the history of Hamburg, within a larger sammelband of six works total.
Skillfully executed series of vignettes featuring Japanese moga ("modern girls") in Western dress next to men and women in traditional Japanese dress – likely a sketchbook or lookbook of designs by a professional to pitch their work in the heavily illustrated magazine culture of the pre-war era.
First illustrated edition, and first single-volume edition, of Austen's third published novel, centering on the comedic neighborhood drama caused by the amateur production of a play, with the inferred specter of the slave trade hovering beneath the plot.
Victorian edition in beautiful original cloth of Austen's first novel, in which one Dashwood sister shows too much stoicism, and the other too much passion – with a lovely inscription by an 1849 buyer to "My dearest Frances... with most true love."
