        William Astor ALS, as Pres. American Fur Co, writes to Robert Stuart, his agent in Mackinac, about payment to G.S. Hubbard! Three movers and shakers of the fur trade

      New York, May 5, 1830. 8" x 9". "Bi-fold ALS, 8"" x 9"", scripted entirely in William Astor's hand on the recto and verso of the first page, with the balance of the pages left blank. Docketed to verso of second page. Tipped into a backing sheet with second leaf inlaid to the page. Signed and dated by Astor ""New York May 5th, 1830"", and signed by William Astor as ""Wm B. Astor"". Expected folds, else unusually clean and well preserved. Accompanied by delicate near fine printed engraving of Astor, 2"" x 2"", along with documented provenance as noted below.William Backhouse Astor Sr. inherited most of his father John Jacob Astor's fortune. He worked as a partner in his father's successful export business who changed the name of his firm to John Jacob Astor & Son and engaged in the China trade. Although William's fortunes grew with his father's company, he became a truly wealthy man when he inherited the estate, worth around $500,000 (equivalent to $12.4 million in 2016), of his childless uncle Henry Astor I (1754-1833). When John Jacob Astor Sr. died in 1848, William became the richest man in America.Of interest is both the recipient of the letter, Robert Stuart, and the reference to G.S. Hubbard. In 1817, the American Fur company built their ""Agent House"" at Mackinac Island, (Michigan), Stuart became the resident agent of the American Fur Company. The Agency House was part of a four-building complex constructed to house the American Fur Company's offices. The other three buildings were a clerk's quarters (now demolished), a warehouse built in 1810 (now the Community Hall), and a trading post (subsequently altered, but later restored). Stuart was appointed to succeed the earlier agent in 1820, a position he then held for the next 14 years. Because of Stuart's national prominence and his lengthy association with the Agent's House, the building is still standing today and is nominally referred to as the Robert Stuart House. During Stuart's period, the American Fur Company thrived and the era of the 1820s and 1830s were boom years for the American Fur Company's operation on Mackinac Island. In 1822 more than three million dollars of furs were cleared through the Mackinac Island operation. Given his prominence, it was natural that Robert Stuart's house served as the social center of the island during this time. However, the fur trade began to decline in the 1830s, and in 1835 Stuart eventually moved on to DetroitAnd as the fur trade declined, Mackinac Island became a resort community. By the mid 19th century, the Agent House (now called the Robert Stuart House) was used as a boarding house in the years before and during the Civil War. And just to follow the building and the history of this island today, in 1871, the entire American Fur Company complex was purchased by James F. Cable and the three main buildings - the Agent's House, warehouse, and clerk's quarters[ - were linked with palisades and turned into the premiere island hotel of the time, the John Jacob Astor House.It remained the social center of the island until the construction of the Grand HotelThe other significant person mentioned in this letter is that of G.S. Hubbard (Gurdon Saltonstall Hubbard ) an American fur trader, insurance underwriter and also one with an interest in land speculation. Hubbard led an odd path to John Jacob Astor when in 1818, through his family's misfortune, Hubbard was indentured to John Jacob Astor's American Fur Company for five years at $120 per year, and remained in the fur trade for a period thereafter. By the 1830s, Hubbard served in the Illinois General Assembly and became a leading figure in the fur trade and opened the first meat packing plant in Chicago as part of his work to supply Fort Dearborn with meat. In support of this business, he built the first warehouse, known as ""Hubbard's Folly,"" in Chicago. Building his own fortune in meats and furs allowed Hubbard to enter into the insurance business, and he was the first underwriter in Chicago.The path of the three men addressed in this letter were all of historical significance in US history. The direction of these important players in the fur trade sometimes intertwined and other times ran parallel to each other, but in this one letter the 3 men, Astor, Hubbard and Stuart were working together during the prominent era of the early 1830's. The letter in full is shown below:""Dear Sir, New York May 5, 1830Mr. G. S. Hubbard has presented one of your (illegible) bills in favor of Noel Vapeur for Four Hundred + ninety seven 087/100 Dollars with interest from 1st August 1827. Mr. Hubbard is in want of the money, but as it is a matter of your (illegible)a transaction of which I can have no knowledge I do not like to interfere, but to oblige Mr. Hubbard I have agreed to advance to him $250, say two hundred + fifty dollars, and there will remain the onsaid due bill including interest three hundred sixteen 11/100 Dollars from which is to be deducted any account which you may have against Vapeur and for the Balance you will settle with Mr. Hubbard.I send you a copy of the one bill which is now in the company ...I am truly YoursWm B. AstorPresdt Amn Fur CoFor American Fur CoRobert Stuart - Esq.Verso statement of:Mackinac august 1st, 1827$497.68 Due Noel Vapeur by the American Fur Company. Four Hundred + Ninety Seven 68/100 Dollars with interest at five percent from this date Robert Stuart Agent Am fur Co""Later, William Astor, in following the example of his father, also invested in real estate, principally situated below Central Park, between 4th and 7th Avenues, which rapidly increased in value. For about 13 years prior to 1873 he was largely engaged in building until much of his hitherto unoccupied land was covered by houses. He was said to own in 1867 as many as 720 houses, and he was also heavily interested in railroad, coal, and insurance companies. His management of the family real estate holdings succeeded in multiplying their value, and he left an estate worth close to $50 million. His house at Barrytown, New York, known as Rokeby, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.A letter induces the reader to an incredible amount of reflection of a phenomenal period history gone by, and the amazing lives of the 3 men mentioned within the letterProvenance: This item was recently discovered in an extra illustrated volume of "History of the City of New York" by Mary L. Booth, New York W. R. C. Clark, 1867. Originally two volumes, the monumental task of expanding the work to 21 volumes by none other than Emery E. Childs esquire of New York City. In volume 1 of this work exists a lovely india ink Drawing of Mary L. Booth along with a notation "presented by her to E E C" in pencil. Next to the title page we find an original letter of Booth to Childs dated April 4, 1872 " I am in receipt of your favor of the 4th inst., and am grateful to hear that you are taking the trouble to illustrate my History of the City of New York in the manner you describe. I shall be happy to see you, should you favor me with a callas I am usually in my office during business hours and should be pleased to facilitate your Enterprise by any means in my power"It is assumed that the book took several years to assemble at which point, assumedly through Childs, it made its way to Senator Charles B. Farwell of Chicago who took the seat of John A. Logan in 1887. Farwell had an extensive library that fortunately survived the great Chicago fire in 1871 having been housed in his Lakeside home. In the American Bibliopolist of November 1871 there is an article about the devastation to libraries caused by the tragedy . "Mr C. B. Farwell's library is also fortunately far out from the city, at his country house, and is safe, The same remark will also apply to the extensive collection of books and curiosities belonging to Mr. E. E. Childs." This establishes the Chicago connection between Childs and Farwell.That these letters were preserved for over 140 years and have never been on the market for that period is remarkable on many levels. It is the state of being wedged in these volumes that also account for what is mostly the pristine state of preservation."

        Principles of Geology, Being an Attempt to Explain the Former Changes of the Earth's Surface, by Reference to Causes Now in Operation

      London: John Murray, 1830-3 - First edition. Three volumes. 8vo. Recent period style speckled dark calf, spines with raised bands, gilt lettered green and red labels, all edges speckled red, the old armorial bookplates of George Fortescue Wilbraham to the front pastedowns. Frontispieces to each volume including two handcoloured aquatints, 3 maps, two of which are coloured, and 5 plates plus 133 illustrations in the text. Some foxing to the plates slightly affecting the adjacent leaves, otherwise a clean and attractive set. A classic of 19th century thought and of the young science of Geology. The work was an enormous influence on Darwin, who took volume I on the Beagle and received the second volume whilst in South America. He later wrote to a friend "I always feel as if my books came half out of Lyell's brain". ".Lyell probably accomplished more in the advancement of geological knowledge than any other one man. The world wide influence of his treatises and textbooks definitely established the principles of uniformitarianism" (Mather and Mason). PMM, 344. Donovan, pp. 87-89.

        INTRIGUING SPANISH-LANGUAGE AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM STEPHEN F. AUSTIN TO JOSÉ DE LAS PIEDRAS, COMMANDER OF THE MEXICAN FORCES IN NACOGDOCHES, APOLOGIZING FOR A LATE REPLY AND DISCUSSING A LOST MEXICAN NAVAL SCHOONER].

      San Felipe de Austin. June 12, 1830. - [1]p., accompanied by a typed English translation. Mild soiling and wear, small chip at top edge, short tear at right side, some creasing. Overall, very good A rare letter from Stephen F. Austin in Spanish, and signed "Estevan F. Austin." The Texas empresario, a decade into his project of founding a colony of emigrants from the United States in Mexican- controlled Texas, writes to the commander of military forces in the east Texas town of Nacogdoches, apologizing first for a delay in answering a letter written to him the end of March (in translation): "My dear sir, I did not receive your letter dated on the 31st of March just past until after my return from Bexar on the 9th of this month. I have been absent from these parts most of the time since the month of February, only returning to my house twice, and for a few days each time." Austin continues by addressing a situation regarding a lost Mexican naval vessel (again, in translation): "Up to now, I have not had any news of the national schooner CONSTANTE that you tell me about in your letter. The Galveston administrator has started to carry out the duties of his post, and I will waste no time in advising him of your desires. I remain your very attentive friend and servant, who kisses your hands. Estevan F. Austin." This letter was written just after the Mexican government halted emigration of U.S. citizens into Mexico with the Law of April 6, 1830, though Austin, through his good relations with the government, was able to continue to accept emigrants into his colony. The CONSTANTE, which Austin mentions by name here, is listed as a brigantine in a roll of historic ships of the Mexican Navy. Piedras was the commander of the Mexican Twelfth Permanent Battalion in Nacogdoches from 1827 until 1832, and was intimately involved in the event that many cite as the opening bell of the Texas Revolution. On August 2, 1832, just two short years after this letter was written, a group of Texas settlers defied an order by Piedras to surrender their guns. The result was the Battle of Nacogdoches, in which about 100 American Texans defeated the entrenched Mexican battalion. Afterwards, Piedras was taken to Stephen F. Austin at San Felipe, where Austin pardoned him. Piedras returned to his family in Matamoros, Mexico, and never stepped back into Texas. Somewhat surprisingly, Austin letters written by him in Spanish have been historically rare in the marketplace. This letter is especially interesting as it involves the "Father of Texas" writing to a Mexican commander involved in perhaps the first battle of the Texas Revolution, after which one pardoned the other.

        [INTRIGUING SPANISH-LANGUAGE AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM STEPHEN F. AUSTIN TO JOSÉ DE LAS PIEDRAS, COMMANDER OF THE MEXICAN FORCES IN NACOGDOCHES, APOLOGIZING FOR A LATE REPLY AND DISCUSSING A LOST MEXICAN NAVAL SCHOONER]

      San Felipe de Austin, 1830. [1]p., accompanied by a typed English translation. Mild soiling and wear, small chip at top edge, short tear at right side, some creasing. Overall, very good. A rare letter from Stephen F. Austin in Spanish, and signed "Estevan F. Austin." The Texas empresario, a decade into his project of founding a colony of emigrants from the United States in Mexican-controlled Texas, writes to the commander of military forces in the east Texas town of Nacogdoches, apologizing first for a delay in answering a letter written to him the end of March (in translation): "My dear sir, I did not receive your letter dated on the 31st of March just past until after my return from Bexar on the 9th of this month. I have been absent from these parts most of the time since the month of February, only returning to my house twice, and for a few days each time." Austin continues by addressing a situation regarding a lost Mexican naval vessel (again, in translation): "Up to now, I have not had any news of the national schooner CONSTANTE that you tell me about in your letter. The Galveston administrator has started to carry out the duties of his post, and I will waste no time in advising him of your desires.... I remain your very attentive friend and servant, who kisses your hands. Estevan F. Austin." This letter was written just after the Mexican government halted emigration of U.S. citizens into Mexico with the Law of April 6, 1830, though Austin, through his good relations with the government, was able to continue to accept emigrants into his colony. The CONSTANTE, which Austin mentions by name here, is listed as a brigantine in a roll of historic ships of the Mexican Navy. Piedras was the commander of the Mexican Twelfth Permanent Battalion in Nacogdoches from 1827 until 1832, and was intimately involved in the event that many cite as the opening bell of the Texas Revolution. On August 2, 1832, just two short years after this letter was written, a group of Texas settlers defied an order by Piedras to surrender their guns. The result was the Battle of Nacogdoches, in which about 100 American Texans defeated the entrenched Mexican battalion. Afterwards, Piedras was taken to Stephen F. Austin at San Felipe, where Austin pardoned him. Piedras returned to his family in Matamoros, Mexico, and never stepped back into Texas.

        [SIGNIFICANT SPANISH-LANGUAGE AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM THOMAS JEFFERSON CHAMBERS TO JOSÉ DE LAS PIEDRAS, COMMANDER OF THE MEXICAN FORCES IN NACOGDOCHES, ABOUT THE REPLACEMENT OF JUAN ANTONIO PADILLA AS A LAND COMMISSIONER]

      San Antonio de Bexar, 1830. [2]pp. plus integral address leaf. Accompanied by a typed English translation. A few short fold splits, small loss at removed seal, not affecting any text. Very good. An interesting letter from Thomas Jefferson Chambers, controversial lawyer, surveyor, and land speculator in Mexican Texas, to José de las Piedras, commander of the Mexican Twelfth Permanent Battalion in Nacogdoches from 1827 until 1832. Chambers, who moved to Mexico in 1826 before being named surveyor general of Texas in 1829, writes to Piedras about the prospects of replacing land commissioner Juan Antonio Padillo, who had been arrested on a bogus murder charge. This cast a shadow over the surveying of land grants and issuing of titles in which Chambers and Padillo had been engaged, but was to open up future opportunities for Chambers. The letter translates, in part: "I am sending to the inhabitants of that border the translation of an order by His Excellency, the governor of the state, in which he anticipates their turning to the government to petition that he be designated to replace Mr. Juan Antonio Padilla as the commissioner who is to issue them their land titles...it is probable that they will hold meetings in order to draw up their petitions, I am advising you of this.... I have understood that you will probably be commissioned as the inspector of colonization for the general government. I am glad of this, and I hope that it will pose no obstacle to the state commissioners in their work. If it is true that you have received this appointment, please let me know in Saltillo, since I would like to consult you about some points of the colonization law.... [Y]our attentive servant, who kisses your hands. Thomás Jefferson Chambers." A significant letter concerning the pre-Revolution colonization of Texas by Thomas Jefferson Chambers, a prominent though controversial early Texas figure in law, politics, and land, who was assassinated in 1856, likely by someone involved in a lawsuit with him over land claims.

        Principles of Geology, Being an Attempt to Explain the Former Changes of the Earth's Surface, by Reference to Causes Now in Operation.

      First edition. Three volumes. 8vo. Recent period style speckled dark calf, spines with raised bands, gilt lettered green and red labels, all edges speckled red, the old armorial bookplates of George Fortescue Wilbraham to the front pastedowns. Frontispieces to each volume including two handcoloured aquatints, 3 maps, two of which are coloured, and 5 plates plus 133 illustrations in the text. Some foxing to the plates slightly affecting the adjacent leaves, otherwise a clean and attractive set.A classic of 19th century thought and of the young science of Geology. The work was an enormous influence on Darwin, who took volume I on the Beagle and received the second volume whilst in South America. He later wrote to a friend "I always feel as if my books came half out of Lyell's brain". "...Lyell probably accomplished more in the advancement of geological knowledge than any other one man. The world wide influence of his treatises and textbooks definitely established the principles of uniformitarianism" (Mather and Mason).

        BOTANICAL MISCELLANY: Containing figures and descriptions

      1830 - HOOKER, William Jackson. BOTANICAL MISCELLANY: Containing figures and descriptions of such plants as recommend themselves by their novelty, rarity, or history, or by the uses to which they are applied in the arts, in medicine, and in domestic oeconomy; together with occasional botanical notices and information, VOL. I[-III]. London: John Murray, 1830[-1833]. Three octavo volumes illustrated with 152 (of 154) engraved plates, of which 20 are folding and 64 are hand-colored. The plates are by Dr. Greville, W. J. Hooker, Re. L. Guilding, A.M., W. Wilson, J. Newman, Mme. Bernard, Prof. Boyer, J. F. Klotzsch, Mrs. C. Telfair, Miss Baigrie, engraved by Swann. The author, William Jackson Hooker (1785-1865), botanist, was appointed the first full-time director of the Royal Gardens at Kew in 1841. Over the course of his long tenure, which ended at his death in 1865, he helped develop and create the modern Royal Gardens at Kew. Hooker followed the "Botanical Miscellany" with a second series, begun in 1834, entitled "The Journal of Botany." Vol. 1: [iv], 1-222,221- 356 pp., plates 1-67, 67 bis, 68-75. Vol. 2: [ii], [1]-421 pp., plates.76- 95, suppl. pl. 1-19. Vol. 3: [ii], [1]-390 pp., plates 96-109, 111 & 112, suppl. pl. 21-41. According to Stafleu et al. (TL-2, 2999): "The supplementary plates, all hand-col. copper engr., are sometimes lacking, especially nos. 1-10." This copy has all but one supplementary plate, no. 20, which is also lacking in the copies described by Nissen, Pritzel, and Sitwell amd Blunt. Stafleu continues "The regular plates are (mostly) uncoloured, except for 110, which is coloured, but which is also mostly missing." This copy has almost all regular plates, of which twenty-four in Vol. 1 are colored. Unfortunately it lacks the "mostly missing" plate 110. The plates are clean and bright and, when colored, nicely so. The text, too, is very nearly complete, lacking only the errata slip in Vol. 1. There is some occasional light to moderate foxing, mostly in Vols. 2 and 3, that does not affect the pates. Ex library, with an ink stamp and a perforated stamp on title-page, a perforated stamp at head of first text leaf, and an ink stamp on page 50 in each volume. The plates are unmarked. In worn publisher's bindings of green cloth, each with the book- label of Samuel A. D. Sheppard and a library stamp on front pastedown and call numbers
