        A new discovery being an original, unpublished journal kept by Millard Fillmore, signed six times by him and once by his wife Caroline. Fillmore complains of " Whig Treachery" and tries to stave off the impending bank crisis, which would lead to the Panic of 1837 by securing loans from the likes of John Jacob Astor

      Buffalo, New York, 1834-1860. 6.5" x 8". "Manuscript journal, signed ""Millard Fillmore,"" and ""Fillmore,"" in text and again initialed ""M.F."" four times, 6.5"" x 8"", 51 leaves, Buffalo (among other locales), September 25, 1834 to August 16, 1836, and October 1860, bound in marbled boards and leather spine. The first portion (1834-1836) is a journal of correspondence, kept primarily in Fillmore's hand, summarizing various legal matters with which he was involved, as well as an account book. The journal also features Fillmore's wife, Caroline C. Fillmore, who adds an Autograph Note Signed ""C. C. Fillmore,"" to the front pastedown. Expertly rebound with the original boards and spine, light soiling and scattered foxing, else very good to fine condition. The account book details the workings of Fillmore's legal practice during his early years in politics as he transitioned from the Anti-Masonic Party to the Whig Party, which nominated its first national candidates in the election of 1836. The early Whig party was marked by factional strife, which frustrated Fillmore to no end. Although many of his notes concern ongoing legal and financial matters, politics occasionally comes up. In New York State, the nascent Whig Party was roundly defeated in the elections for the New York assembly by the highly-organized Democrats. On November 5, 1835, only a day after the election, Fillmore lamented the Whig drubbing at the polls, noting the result in Buffalo won handily by the Democratic candidate: ""Political: Barker Election to the Assembly by Whig Treachery & money."" Fearing that Whig disorganization would further undermine its efforts on the national stage the following year, Fillmore hoped for a ""Union upon Harrison or no body"" Sadly, although the Whigs did nominate Harrison for President that December, it also nominated three other candidates, including Daniel Webster, Hugh Lawson White and Willie Person Morgan as well. In November 1836, Van Buren handily defeated them all, garnering more popular and electoral votes than all the Whig candidates combined. Despite the off-season defeat of his local candidate, Fillmore wrote that he was ""indifferent as to Result"" as there was ""plenty of business."" Ironically, one reason Fillmore was enjoying ""plenty of business,"" was because the economy was in decline. Beginning in 1836, a series of business failures plagued Buffalo, bringing a good deal of work to Fillmore's law practice. Part of his journal also documents a series of trips that Fillmore undertook to obtain a loan to stave off the impending financial crisis, which met with little success, but documents the early stages of what would become known as the Panic of 1837. Starting in Washington in May 1836 he subsequently traveled to Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York where he even applied personally to John Jacob Astor ""Ans. To theirs of 21. Had seen Robinson: and much depended on Duer's success in England where he had gone for money $1,000,000 to be pd. Into T. Co. on a new stock 13 June but mostly promised. Nothing at present of Astor, Bard would help but can do nothing"" Hartford and Boston yielded similar disappointing results. Writing from ""Boston June 1836... Arrived here from N[ew]. Haven on Wed Evg. Saw Henry A. Perkins, Esq. Cashier of the Hartford Bank & Elisha Colt Esq Cash. of the Exchange Bank at Hartford. Hard times. Colt thought money might be loaned to brokers when times easier etc."" Andrew Jackson's ""Specie Circular"" of 1836, which demanded that western land could only be purchased with gold and silver coin, had drained the eastern banks of their specie reserves, forcing them to scale back lending severely, while spurious banks issued mountains of paper currency of questionable value. Meanwhile, the Bank of England had raised its interest rates three to five percent, enough to dampen international lending. This move forced banks in the United States to raise their rates and within two months the price of cotton had dropped by 25% setting off a string of bank failures that would engulf the nation into a business depression that lasted until 1843. (Fillmore and the Whigs also benefited from this development, as Martin Van Buren bore the brunt of the blame for the economic distress and would go down in defeat in the Election of 1840 to Harrison). The balance of the book contains newspaper clippings compiled by Fillmore's second wife, Caroline C. Fillmore who writes on the front pastedown of the journal: ""Account from the papers of the visit of the Prince of Wales to N.Y. Ect?" Oct[to]b[er] 1860 - Mrs. C. C. Fillmore"" The visit of the Prince of Wales, apart from the bitterly-contented presidential election of 1860 which brought Abraham Lincoln to the White House, was the other major news item that fall. The Prince of Wales at the time was Albert Edward (1841-1910) who would ascend the British throne as Edward VII in 1901. The journal, which is apparently unpublished, offers a fresh look at Fillmore's early legal and political careers, filling in previously unknown details of his life. An exhaustive search of records shows no similar journal of a President or future President ever being offered publically. Originally, and until just a short time ago, the entire journal was obscured by the newspaper accounts that Caroline Fillmore had pasted on every page. Had it not been for the eagle eyes of a knowledgeable historian who saw some writing beneath the newsprint, Fillmore's words would have been hidden for the ages. A spectacular Presidential item and a great story."

        St. Goar predigt am Rhein das Evangelium.

      - Bleistift, teilweise blau, grau und braun laviert, auf gelblichem Papier, verso betitelt „Der Erzähler". 29,2:36,4 cm; oben rundbogig geschlossen. In den Ecken leicht knitterfaltig, kleine Einrisse in den Rändern restauriert. Der oben rundbogige Abschluß der Darstellung läßt darauf schließen, daß das Bildmotiv ursprünglich als Wandmalerei ausgeführt werden sollte. Vorstudie zu dem Gemälde von 1834, das sich im Besitz des Museum Altona in Hamburg befindet. Vergleichsliteratur: Boetticher Bd. I, Tl. 1, S. 264, Nr. 6; Lexikon der Düsseldorfer Malerschule 1819-1918. München, Bruckmann, 1997, Bd. I, S. 307/308, Abb. 356. Ebers studierte seit 1829/30 an der Düsseldorfer Akademie; zwar sind in den Schülerlisten die Namen seiner Lehrer nicht genannt, doch dokumentierte A. Graf Raczynski, daß Ebers im 1. Halbjahr 1834 zu jenen Schülern zählte, die „unter der unmittelbaren Leitung des Direktors Schadow" arbeiteten (A. Raczynski, Geschichte der neueren deutschen Kunst. 3 Bde. Berlin 1836-41. Bd. I, S. 114). Nach einem dreijährigen Aufenthalt in seiner Heimat gehörte er 1837 der Meisterklasse der Düsseldorfer Akademie an. Von Beginn seiner künstlerischen Tätigkeit an wählte er Motive aus dem Milieu der Schmuggler, Fischer, Schiffer oder Soldaten, die teils dramatisch, teils humoristisch geschildert sind. Weiterhin beschäftigten ihn historische und romantisch-mittelalterliche Themen. In Komposition und Gebärden der Figuren läßt sich der Einfluß von C.F. Lessing (1808-1880) nachweisen. Durch Kontakte zu Düsseldorfer Malerkollegen wurde er in seiner Auffasssung der Genremalerei bestärkt. Ferner schuf er Porträts, Marine- und Landschaftsbilder. 1844 kehrte Ebers in seine Heimatstadt zurück und heiratete 1845 Lessings Schwester Fanny. Nach 1850 wechselte er häufig seinen Wohnort. Er lebte in Gaffron bei Lüben, in Dresden, Görlitz und nach 1869 in Beuthen an der Oder. Seit den 1860er Jahren war er kaum noch künstlerisch tätig, stellte aber doch 1881 und 1883 in Dresden aus.

        An Arabic grammar compiled for the use of Travellers

      1834 - Arabic for the use of travellers. 1834. [Bombay]. F. D. Ramos, Government Gazette Press. In folio (270 mm x 185 mm). 2 ff. + 43 pp. Possibly contemporary half calf over boards, spine simply tooled in gilt. A fine wide-margined copy; with very small and faint water stain to inner margin of title page. First edition. Exceedingly scarce grammar ´adapted to the dialects of Egypt and Syria´, made for the use of English travellers and printed in Bombay; as the own work states it is an ´attempt to facilitate the intercourse between Gentlemen proceeding overland to Europe, and the Natives of the countries through which they pass´. Its purpose is not to be a comprehensive survey of the language; it is rather intended for a more practical use, a vocabulary list (pp. 18 – 20) are taken from Mutti´s An Itinerary of the route from Suez to Alexandria (1830). What follows are sentences of possible interactions, with their literal and phonetic translations into Arabic. A rare book, with only 6 recorded institutional copies (COPAC and OCLC).

        Alois Senefelder, Erfinder der Lithographie.

      . Kreidelithographie auf aufgewalztem China 1834. 55:36 cm. Mit zugehörigem Spendenaufruf im Buchdruck, verfasst von Albrecht Adam 1846. Literatur: Aufseesser 1; C. Wagner, Senefelder, S. 167; Bild vom Stein 137; Von Senefelder bis Daumier 4 und Abb.- Tadellos frisch erhalten.. Kurz vor Senefelders Tod portraitierte Franz Hanfstaengel den Erfinder der Lithographie; mit dem Verkauf der Abzüge wollte er dann ein Grabdenkmal für Senefelder finanzieren. Dies aber übernahm König Ludwig I., sodaß der Stein ungedruckt blieb. Erst 1846 ließ ihn Albrecht Adam aus Anlaß des 50. Jubiläums der Erfindung der Lithographie abziehen und druckte dazu einen Spendenaufruf, die nahezu mittellosen Enkel Senefelders zu unterstützen, deren Taufpate und Vormund er war. Eine zweite spätere Auflage des Portraits diente dann der Finanzierung eines Senefelder-Denkmals.

        DESCRIPTION OF SOME OF THE MEDALS, STRUCK IN RELATION TO IMPORTANT EVENTS IN NORTH AMERICA, BEFORE AND SINCE THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE BY THE UNITED STATES. Collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society. Third Series, Vol. IV

      Charles Folsom, Cambridge 1834 - 8vo, modern tan and blue cloth, lettered in brown. v, (3), 336 pages. [Mease's article appears on pages 297-320.] A bit trimmed when bound, but unobtrusively so. Some spotting, else fine. A landmark of early U.S. numismatic literature, Mease's article in this volume of the Collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society is a revision and expansion of his 1821 article published in the Collections of the New-York Historical Society, the first article written on a strictly American numismatic subject for numismatists (the 1800 article by Kunze includes some American content, but in the main discusses foreign coins). The article is expanded from 18 to 24 pages, and adds material to Mease's descriptions of the medals from the War of 1812. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Dai Nihon Yochi Benran. ???????

      Tenpo 5. 1834.. TWO VOLUMES, 76 double page color woodblock maps (41+35), 10 1/8 x 7 inches (26 x 18 cm), Japanese accordion style binding with decorative embossed paper covers. There is worming to many, but not all, of the pages, occasional light soiling to margins, covers quite worn. This beautiful woodblock atlas begins with a map of Japan, which is followed by maps of the individual provinces, and finally a map of the world. This map emphasises the effects on geographic knowledge of Japan's closure to outside influence, featuring California as an island, and a mapping of Australia (marked "megaranika" presumably relating to the color of the inhabitants and joined to New Guinea to the north and to Antarctica at the south) which was profoundly out of date. New Zealand does not appear on the map. .

Oliver Goldsmith was born in St.Andrew's, New Brunswick in 1794 and was the great nephew of OliverGoldsmith, the English poet. The Rising Village is written in imitationof The Deserted Village. He was Canada's first native-born poet. Exceptfor some time spent travelling, he spent most of his working life inHalifax, where he wrote The Rising Village. Rhodenizer states that hisverse is ". noticeably reminiscent of that of his great-uncle, theIrish born English poet". An expanded collection over the London 1825edition of the title poem. A work of some note in the history of Canadianpoetry. Described by Klinck et al (LITERARY HISTORY OF CANADA) as "thefirst volume of verse ever published in Canada by a native-born Canadianto receive serious attention at the hands of critics and literaryhistorians.
