Henry (Heinrich) Kurtz (1796-1874) came to America in 1817 at the age of 21. He became a pastor at the Western Pennsylvania parish in 1823. Right from the beginning there were rumblings of dissatisfaction due to his advanced ideas about communal movements and his blunt, at times untactful behavior. He resigned and left for Columbiana County in Ohio and on to Starck County soon after where he became a printer and planner for communal society. In 1825 the first issue of his "Wiedergefundenes Paradies" (Found Again Paradise) was published. Among many other contributions in 1826 Kurtz published the constitution of the Harmony Society, a Christian theosophy and pietist society, originally founded in Germany Johann Georg Rapp, who's Indiana settlement had been sold to Robert Owen who renamed the society "New Harmony." In the same year the first meeting of Kurtz's friends of the Christliche Industrie Gesellschaft Concordia took place in the same year, a society to establish an educational institute, a house for the care of the elderly, a library, a printing shop, a general hospital and a Union church. Among the many publications of the printing shop was the New Testament, a translation into German by Martin Luther in 1836. The first German Lutheran New Testament published in America was printed in 1743. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Eulogium upon the Life and Character of the Hon. Benjamin Parke; delivered at Indianapolis, on the 1st day of June, 1836, at the request of the members of the Bar

      Indianapolis: Bolton & Livingston, Printers, 1836. Very Good. First edition. Octavo. 16pp. Removed from a bound volume. Faint stamp of a philosophical society, horizontal fold (possibly as mailed), else very good. Eulogy of Parke, important Indiana politician and soldier. On the final leaf the book is inscribed to Joseph Ray by Daniel Drake: "J.B. Ray. Doct. Danl. Drake, City of Cincinnati, Ohio."Drake was an important American physician and social reformer, in 1819 he helped organize the Medical College of Ohio in Cincinnati. Ray was a professor of mathematics and wrote several books on the subject, beginning in 1834 with An Introduction to Ray's Eclectic Arithmetic, the first of a series of six textbooks which became the most popular and widely used American mathematics textbooks of the 19th Century. They also formed the basis for Ray's Mathematical Series of textbooks. As late as 1913, annual sales exceeded a quarter of a million copies a year, and total sales of the arithmetic books alone are estimated at 120 million copies. The success of Ray's Arithmetic series prompted his publisher to seek an author for a set of readers. They chose William Holmes McGuffey, who joined Ray on the faculty of Woodward College in Cincinnati, where he wrote the McGuffey Readers which surpassed even Ray's Arithmetic to become the most popular textbook ever written. OCLC locates seven copies of this pamphlet over two records.

These include an article by Chalmers on parochial destitution in Scotland, various articles on schools, university education, Church of Scotland's missionary work, Highland emigrants, the northern whale fishery, and several pieces on the role of the Church of Scotland in England. There is also some poetry. In his final Editorial Envoy,> the editor explains to the reader why the journal was ceasing publication. It would be replaced by The Scottish Presbyterian Record; or, Anglo-Caledonian Journal> which would be 'less of the world, and more of the gospel, than the Thistle'. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

He had been married to Sarah Lewis for only a couple of months before the discovery of his mother-in-law's body. It transpires that before their marriage Sarah's father had handed over a dowry of ?47 to Bartlett, with the caveat that no more money would be forthcoming until the death of Mary Lewis. Bartlett had been seen alone with Mary on a number of occasions in the days leading up to her murder. With evidence stacking up against him Bartlett was arrested and committed to trial, where he pleaded "not guilty." However, he was found guilty by the jury and executed on April 15, 1837. There is a vivid account of this case in the Newgate Calendar: www.exclassics.com/newgate/ng885.htm. No copies located on OCLC.

        Collection of Hoffman ephemera Collection from his travels in Europe

      19 items of handwritten ephemera from John Hoffman Collamore (1816-1896), traveler and member of the Columbian Lodge, Boston, MA (Founded by Paul Revere) and Member of the Massachusetts Genealogical Society. All items from 1836 through 1860's when he resided in France and took part in the French Wars of the 1860's. Hand written receipts of purchased items and lodging expenses and a note in Collamore's hand about an itinerary of his travel in Europe. After extensive travel all over the US, Latin America and Europe, John Collamore returned to Boston and lived out the remainder of this life in Boston. John Hoffman Collamore was born in Boston, November 21, 1816. He was the son of Gilman and Maria Eliza (Hoffman) Collamore. The father was an importer and dealer in china and crockery ware. The son had his education in the old Salem Street Academy and in Chauncy Hall School. In his youth he was exceedingly ford of travel, and had a special love for the sea. He made one voyage as a common sailor. He crossed to Europe in the sloop-of-war "Jamestown" and remained there nearly twenty years, tramping over the continent and canoeing up from the great revers, such as the Seine and the Rhone. Having influence with the French government, he was permitted to accompany its army during the Franco-Austro-Italian war, and was an eye-witness of the battles of Solferino and Magenta. Re-crossing the ocean, he traveled through the United States, Mexico, the West Indies, South America and the Hawaiian Islands, always walking when it was possible to do so. At length, feeling the approach of age, he returned to Boston, made himself a home on Columbus Avenue, and settled down amid books and works of art. He was one of the trustees of Mt. Hope Cemetery. He was a well-known member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company. In 1890 he joined the Masonic Fraternity and passed rapidly through all its grades, to the highest. He was very generous in his relations to the order. There is hardly a Masonic organization in Boston or its immediate vicinity that has not received substantial tokens of his regard. In his will he bequeathed sums amounting to $64,000 to the charity funds of various Masonic bodies. Mr. Collamore became a member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society in 1894. He was never married, but left three adopted children. He died in Boston, November 3, 1896. "memorial biographies of the New England historic genealogical society, Towne Memorial fund Volume IX 1890-1897. Boston: Published by the Society 18 Somerset St. 1908" "Brother John Hoffman Collamore (November 21, 1816 - November 3, 1896) - was a traveler and philanthropist. Born in the city of Boston, Mass., November 21, 1816. He received his education first at the Old Salem Street Academy, then entered the Chauncey Hall School. He worked in a Boston counting house for several years, but the urge to travel proved too strong, and he went to sea, being one among the first to volunteer to travel to Ireland to provide relief to those suffering from terrible famine. Brother Collamore became from this time forward a great traveler, and for many years devoted his travels over a great part of Europe on foot. At one time he was absent from the United States for eighteen years. After his return from Europe, he next went to South America, and visited many parts of that then little known continent; also visiting the Sandwich Islands, Mexico and the West Indies. Returning to the United States, he next began a series of tours, during which he visited nearly every state and territory in the Union, including Alaska. At the close of these tours he settled in Boston, and devoted himself to the care and management of his extensive financial interests. He was made a Master Mason in Columbian Lodge, Boston, on January 2nd, 1890, and very quickly became active in Many Masonic organizations, including:; St. Andrew's Royal Arch Chapter, Boston Commandery, Knights Templar, Boston Council, Lafayette Lodge of Perfection, Giles F. Yates Council, Princes of Jerusalem, Mount Olivet Chapter, Rose-Croix, and Massachusetts Consistory. At the Session of the Supreme Council of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction of the United States, held at Providence, R. I., in September 1892, Brother Collamore was elected to the Honorary Grade of Sovereign Grand Inspector-General (33°). Brother Collamore was widely esteemed for his great love for and interest in the welfare of the Fraternity; shown by him not only through his personal activity and zeal in the work, but through the many substantial gifts he has made to the several branches of the Order with which he is identified. Among these, worthy of special mention, is the Columbian Lodge burial plot at the Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA." courtesy of Columbian Lodge A.F. & A.M.

      Boston: James Munroe & Co. 1836 - Boston: James Munroe & Co., 1836. First edition, second state with the corrected pagination on page 94 (no priority). Publisher's original blue cloth, decoratively stamped in blind and lettered in gilt (BAL frame A, cloth H). An about very good copy with light wear and sunning to extremities, front hinge very slightly starting, moderate foxing to text block, and a small hole in the rear free endpaper. Overall still a very attractive copy with bright gilt lettering on the original publisher's binding. Housed in a custom folding box. BAL 5181. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. This essay, originally published anonymously, was one of the first works to establish the principles of the Transcendentalist movement, of which Emerson was a founding member. Transcendentalism arose in response to growing intellectualism and spirituality at the time, and focused on prioritizing the individual experience and intuition, especially in relation to the natural world, over resolute empirical science. In Nature, Emerson explores the relationship between humans and nature, specifically how humans respond to nature's inherent beauty. Notably, Nature became a major influence for later transcendentalist writer, Henry David Thoreau, who drew on his inspiration from Emerson's essay for his famous work, Walden. Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Statement beneath the tally: <I>“We the undersigned do hereby certify that the above is a correct abstract of the votes given for Senator, Additional Senator, and Representatives to the State Legislature, at the several Precincts within said county, at the general Election held on the first day of August Eighteen Hundred & thirty six. Certified by us this 5th day of August AD 1836.”</I><br /><br />Admitted to the bar in 1834, 21-year-old Stephen Arnold Douglas commenced practicing law in Jacksonville, Morgan County, Illinois. Elected State’s Attorney for the Morgan circuit in 1835, it was in this election in 1836 that Douglas began his legislative career, representing Morgan County in the Illinois House of Representatives from 1836-1837; one of his colleagues in the state legislature was Abraham Lincoln of the adjoining Sangamon County. In 1837, Douglas was appointed Register of the Land Office at Springfield. In 1838, the 27-year-old politician was the unsuccessful Democratic candidate for election to the 26th Congress. Appointed Secretary of State of Illinois during the sessions of the legislature in 1840 and 1841 and elected as one of the Judges of the State Supreme Court, he was referred to as “Judge Douglas” by Illinoisans even while serving in the U.S. House of Representatives (1843-1847) and the U.S. Senate (1847-1861).<br /><br />In April 1836, Morgan County held the first county convention ever held in Illinois. The Whigs and the Democrats nominated their slate of candidates. In the August election, the six candidates receiving the most votes of the 16 running for the House were elected: Newton Cloud (1935), Stephen A. Douglas (1926), Joseph Morton (1768), John J. Hardin (1732), Richard Walker (1726), and William W. Happy (1694). The tally of all the candidates by precinct are recorded on this abstract. On December 1, 1836, Douglas resigned as State’s Attorney. When the Illinois House of Representatives convened, 23-year-old Stephen A. Douglas was its youngest member.

        Full Particulars of the Murder, That was Committed on the Body of...

      1836. "Horrid and Barbarous Murder Committed at Stapleton" [Broadside]. [Murder]. [Bartlett, Charles S. (d. 1837)]. [Lewis, Mary (d. 1836)]. Full Particulars of the Murder, That was Committed on the Body of Mary Lewis, By Charles S. Bartlett, her Son-in-Law, On Saturday, September 10, 1836. With the Copies of Two Letters, That he Wrote to his Wife and Father-in-Law; Also Giving an Account of the Funeral of the Murdered Woman. Bristol: John Bonner, [c.1837]. 20" x 15" broadside.

Main text in three columns, verses at foot text in five columns. Moderate toning and light foxing, horizontal fold line through center, folds, repaired tears to upper left corner with loss of a few words, without loss of sense, a few small holes along fold. $4,500. * Bartlett was the leading actor of Inglestone's San Pareil Theatre company, who had been playing at the nearby annual fair at St. James' Barton, Bristol. He had been married to Sarah Lewis for only a couple of months before the discovery of his mother-in-law's body. It transpires that before their marriage Sarah's father had handed over a dowry of ?47 to Bartlett, with the caveat that no more money would be forthcoming until the death of Mary Lewis. Bartlett had been seen alone with Mary on a number of occasions in the days leading up to her murder. With evidence stacking up against him Bartlett was arrested and committed to trial, where he pleaded "not guilty." However, he was found guilty by the jury and executed on April 15, 1837. There is a vivid account of this case in the Newgate Calendar: www.exclassics.com/newgate/ng885.htm. No copies located on OCLC.

        Recollections of an Artillery Officer: Including Scenes and Adventures in Ireland, America, Flanders, and France

      London: Richard Bentley, 1836. Leatherbound. Very good. 2 vols.: viii, 342; vi, 328 p. 20 cm. Full leather with gold and blank impressing, burgundy spine labels, marbled endpapers and text block edges. Moderate wear. Bookplates on front pastedowns. Light foxing. Ink inscription on a front endpaper in vol. I. The author (1790? - 1845) journeyed to Ireland in 1810 to join the Royal Artillery as a Second Lieutenant. His first active military service was at the British defeat at New Orleans, and he appeared at Waterloo too late to join in the battle. While his memoirs may be of interest to military historians, they may be even more appealing to theatre buffs. Much of Hill's spare time was spent attending theatrical presentations or performing as an amateur actor himself.

        The Trials and Execution of the Six Malefactors Who was [sic].

      1836 - Unrecorded 1814 London Execution Broadside [Broadside]. [Executions]. The Trials and Execution of the Six Malefactors Who was [sic] Executed This Morning in the Old Bailey. [London]: Pigott, Printer, Old-St[reet], [c.1814]. 13-3/4" x 8-1/2" broadside with recent archival-paper backing. Woodcut execution scene depicting six bodies hanging from a gallows below headline. Text in two columns. Light browning and negligible light soiling, a few minor creases with negligible loss to text (due to a printing flaw), "August 22nd 1814" in contemporary hand to right of woodcut. A well-preserved copy. $2,500. * This is the only known copy of this gallows broadside recording six simultaneous executions in London on 22 August 1814, a capital display excessive even for that noose-happy age. Henry Lye and John Field, burglars, Michael Maroney, John Ashton, and Francis Sturgess, highwaymen, and John Mitchell, forger, all met their end with a single drop from the gibbet, and the broadside memorializing them is illustrated with a crude woodcut of the six malefactors after their launch into eternity. Each went relatively without incident, save Ashton, who had been in a state of insanity some days. When he came on the drop he began to dance, clap his hands, and, huzzaing, exclaimed "I am Lord Wellington." After drop had fallen, he sprung up onto the platform, began to dance again and exclaimed, "am I not Lord Wellingtonnow?" The executioner was obliged to push him off, and he died in great agony.

Henry (Heinrich) Kurtz (1796-1874) came to America in 1817 at the age of 21. He became a pastor at the Western Pennsylvania parish in 1823. Right from the beginning there were rumblings of dissatisfaction due to his advanced ideas about communal movements and his blunt, at times untactful behavior. He resigned and left for Columbiana County in Ohio and on to Starck County soon after where he became a printer and planner for communal society. In 1825 the first issue of his "Wiedergefundenes Paradies" (Found Again Paradise) was published. Among many other contributions in 1826 Kurtz published the constitution of the Harmony Society, a Christian theosophy and pietist society, originally founded in Germany Johann Georg Rapp, who's Indiana settlement had been sold to Robert Owen who renamed the society "New Harmony." In the same year the first meeting of Kurtz's friends of the Christliche Industrie Gesellschaft Concordia took place in the same year, a society to establish an educational institute, a house for the care of the elderly, a library, a printing shop, a general hospital and a Union church. Among the many publications of the printing shop was the New Testament, a translation into German by Martin Luther in 1836. The first German Lutheran New Testament published in America was printed in 1743.
