Large folding table of mineral springs in New York state, illustrations in text. The cornerstone of Emmons' five Adirondack reports: including the first time the Adirondacks are described with that name in print. The prints include the first published illustration to contain the name "Adirondack Mountains" in its title. Emmons' paper is signed in print "Albany, Feb. 15, 1838." Pages 240-250 contain the section "Visit to the Mountains of Essex," which contains the first use of the name "Adirondack" on page 242: "The cluster of mountains in the neighborhood of the Upper Hudson and Ausable rivers, I propose to call the Adirondack Group, a name by which a well known tribe of Indians once hunted here may be commemorated." Page 240, describes the ascent of Marcy for the first time: "During the month of August last, I visited the mountains of Essex with a view of determining the position and height of some of the most conspicuous elevations at the source of the Hudson… It is not my object to write an account of this tour; this has already been given to the public by Mr. Redfield, of New-York, in the Journal of Science, and is a valuable document…" Donaldson notes: "The first white men to look down upon these splendors from the dome of the State, were a party of friends and assistants with Professor Emmons, who was engaged at the time in his geological survey. This first ascent on the mountain took place on August 5, 1837. Those who made it were Professor Emmons and son, Edward Hall, W.C. Redfield, Asa Torrey, Professor Storey of New York, and Professor Miller of Princeton, all geologists; Archibald McIntyre and David Henderson of the iron-works; and C.C. Ingham, artist" (Donaldson, p. 152). Ingham provides two signed illustrations to the accompanying atlas; a third is attributed to him by Barnhill and a fourth appears to be his based on Emmons' description in the text (page.242). Ingham was one of the founders of the National Academy of Design; his sketches of the Adirondacks were also used by Headley in his Adirondack, or Life in the Woods (1849). Page 241: proposes naming the highest peak Mount Marcy ("it was thought that a more appropriate name could not be conferred." Also named at the time were McIntyre, McMartin (now Nippletop), Henderson, Seward and Dix (see Donaldson, p. 153 note). Page 244, records height of Mount Marcy at 5,467 feet. Consists of a letter by James E. De Kay, zoologist; reports by Lewis C. Beck, mineralogist; T.A. Conrad, paleontologist; W.W. Mather, E. Emmons, L. Vanuxem, and James Hall, geologists of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th districts respectively. Includes index. Plum/Adirondack Bibliography 2985 (Emmons), 2986 (Marcy); Meisel II, p.611.

N.Y. Barnhill 171. (15). "View of the Dial Mountain," Bufford's Lith. N.Y. Barnhill 169. "New York State commissioned Ebenezer Emmons of Williams College to explore and survey the mountains of the Adirondack region to determine the extent of iron ore deposits. The land Emmons and his party explored was owned by Archibald McIntyre who later formed the Adirondack Iron and Steel Company. One of the artists invited by Emmons to participate in the survey was Charles Cromwell Ingham. Ingham painted the magnificent Great Adirondack Pass, Painted on the Spot (Adirondack Museum collection, 66.114.1) which was reproduced as a lithograph in the New York State Geological Report for 1837 by Emmons and published by the New York State Legislature in 1838 and again in 1840… The New York State Geological Report for 1837 contains a total of ten lithographs and five maps. Because they were the first published depictions of the high peaks area, they constitute a crucial record of the Adirondacks… Ebenezer Emmons was responsible for several views, and the plates were lithographed by the firm of John H. Bufford in New York… These prints are also significant because they depict parts of the region not yet on the traditional tourist's route" (Barnhill, p.12). Emmons' complete report was published in part four of The Geology of New-York issued by the New York State Assembly in 1842 with additional lithographs drawn by John William Hill. Barnhill notes the rarity of early Adirondack views: "Most of the early prints of the Adirondacks, particularly the elegant and expensive portfolios of Wall and Milbert, were published for limited audiences. Although important as illustrations of previously undescribed portions of the Adirondacks, the lithographs accompanying the New York State Geological Survey were likewise seen by a relatively limited audience" (p.13). According to Gloria Gilda Deák, documenting the copy in the I.N. Phelps Stokes collection at the New York Public Library, the work was originally commissioned to illustrate assemble document 200, and was then also issued separately bound in colored paper wrappers. Deák also notes that it is unclear whether the prints attributed to "E. Emmons" are the work of father or son, both of whom were in the exploring party. RLIN locates only four copies of the atlas when separately issued: American Antiquarian Society, Winterthur, University of Michigan, Yale. One copy (of atlas only) sold at auction since 1975: Baltimore Book Auctions, 23 September 1991, lot 343 ($600), with chips, tears at edges, dampstaining. Bufford's career is chronicled in: David Tatham, "John Henry Bufford, American Lithographer," Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society 86 (April 1976), pp.47-73. See Georgia B. Barnhill, Wild Impressions: The Adirondacks on Paper. Prints in the Collection of the Adirondack Museum. Boston, 1995; Deák 477.

        Dichter, Maler und Zeichner (1832-1908): Eigenh. Antwortbrief mit e. U. ("W. B.").

      "[] Sehr geehrter Herr Trojan! Offen gesagt, ist es mir ja lieb, wenn grad Sie was über mich schreiben aber nicht deshalb, sondern lediglich, weil wir wissen, daß Sie ein Mann sind, der schöne Gedichte macht, sollen Sie meinen Angehörigen und mir recht freundlich willkommen sein. Ein genauer Wink über die Zeit Ihres Besuchs, womöglich ein paar Tage vorher, dürfte der Sicherheit wegen wohl rathsam erscheinen. Bestellen Sie den Wagen vom Bahnhofshotel in Seesen, so bringt er Sie in etwa [Bohne 1338 schreibt falsch: ] Stunden hierher. Mit Dank für den liebenswürdigen Brief Ihr ergebenster W. B." - // - Diesen Antwortbrief verfasste Wilhelm Buschs auf der Rückseite des letzten Blattes des Briefes seines Schriftsellerkollegen Johannes Trojan (1837-1915) an ihn. Trojan war 1886-1903 Chefredakteur des "Kladderadatsch" und wurde im Laufe der mit unserem Schreiben angebahnten Beziehung mit Wilhelm Busch und dessen Familie befreundet. Trojan plante, für den "Tag" (illustrierte Unterhaltungsbeilage) einen Artikel zu Buschs 70. Geburtstag zu verfassen. Er wollte den berühmten Kollegen interviewen und hatte [auf der Rückseite unseres Blattes] geschrieben: "[] wenn dies Bekanntmachen auf nicht ungeschickte Weise geschieht, so können Sie auch nichts dagegen haben. Eine Zeit lang dachte ich auch darüber, ob ich mich Ihnen nicht in irgend einer Verkleidung nähern sollte, etwa als Bettler oder als Lebensversicherungsagent oder als reisender Grundmarsbesitzer oder einfach als Besucher, dann aber dachte ich, es wäre das Beste doch, auch in dieser Sache, ganz offen und ehrlich zu verfahren. Das tue ich hiermit und bitte Sie um einen freundlichen Bescheid. Ihr sehr ergebener J. Trojan." - // - Busch hat die leere Rückseite dieses an ihn gerichteten Briefes für den Entwurf seiner Antwort benutzt, die dann noch einmal von ihm abgeschrieben und per Post an Trojan verschickt wurde. So konnte er als tüchtiger Hausvater Papier sparen und das Schreiben an ihn und seine Antwort zusammen für sich und uns aufbewahren.

        The Elements of Political Economy.

      New York: Leavitt, Lord & Company,, 1837. Octavo (230 × 137 mm). Original publisher's embossed cloth, spine lettered gilt. Ownership inscription of Charles Hammond in pencil on pastedown and free endpaper dated 1838. A tiny bit of wear to spine ends and corner; some light spotting, as usual; an excellent copy in very fine condition. First edition of Wayland's Elements of political economy, which "promptly displaced Jean Baptiste Say's Treatise on political economy as the principal economics text in American colleges. Designed to be useful to the layperson, Wayland's book inveighed against the statism of the French Revolution, the backwardness of the Indians, the 'tyranny' of labor unions, and the evils of helping the undeserving poor. His notions of political economy and philanthropy dictated that the most important obligations of the state were to foster education and promote morality. Political economy dealt forthrightly with too many controversial issues to be universally popular; his unqualified support of free trade, for example, distressed many in the northern business community" (ANB). Teacher and clergyman, Francis Wayland (1796?1865) was president of Brown University for twenty-eight years.

In three acts to a libretto by Cammarano after Walter Scott's novel The Bride of Lammermoor, Lucia di Lammermoor was first performed at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples on September 26, 1835. "Both historically and artistically, Lucia deserves its reputation. When it was new it was regarded as the apogee of high Romantic sensibility. Although all the principal roles are vocally challenging, their music is uniformly grateful. Cammarano's libretto moved him deeply and, inspired by his recent first exposure to Paris, Donizetti produced what is certainly his masterpiece." William Ashbrook in Grove Music Online.

        Indians in military service : letter from the Secretary of War, (in obedience to the resolution of the House of Representatives of 18th of September,) in relation to Indians employed in the military service : September 21, 1837 .

      [Washington, D.C.] : [publisher not identified] 1837 - In-8° broché, couverture d'attente moderne sur laquelle est reproduite la page de titre, 13 pages. Cette discussion sur l'emploi des indiens incorporés dans l'armée américaine intervient en pleine guerre des Séminoles. Les dates de début et de fin de la Première Guerre séminole ne sont pas clairement définies. L'infanterie de l'US Army indique qu'elle s'étendit de 1814 à 1819 Le U.S. Navy Naval Historical Center donne 1816 à 1818 Un nouvel évènement affecta bientôt les Séminoles de Floride, la guerre Creek qui se déroula de 1813 à 1814. Andrew Jackson devint un héros national, en 1814, à la suite de sa victoire sur les Creeks, lors de la bataille de Horseshoe Bend. Il imposa alors aux Creeks, le traité de Fort Jackson qui confisquait leur territoire s'étendant au Sud de la Géorgie et au centre et Sud de l'Alabama. Dépossédés de leurs terres, ils se réfugièrent alors en Floride En 1814, également, les Britanniques, en guerre avec les États-Unis, débarquèrent des troupes à Pensacola et en d'autres lieux de Floride occidentale, où il commencèrent à recruter des alliés indiens. En mai 1814, une troupe britannique pénétra l'embouchure de l'Apalachicola, distribuant des armes aux Séminoles, aux Creeks et aux esclaves en fuite. Les Britanniques remontèrent la rivière et établirent un fort à Prospect Bluff. Après que les Britanniques et leurs alliés indiens ont été repoussés lors de l'attaque de Mobile, une troupe américaine, conduite par le général Jackson chassa les Britanniques de Pensacola. Les travaux de construction du fort à Prospect Bluff furent cependant poursuivis. Lorsque la guerre prit fin, les forces Britanniques abandonnèrent la Floride occidentale, à l'exception du major Edward Nicholls des Royal Marines. Il supervisa l'approvisionnement du fort en canons, mousquets et munitions. Il dit aux Indiens que le traité de Gand garantissait la restitution de toutes les terres indiennes perdues lors de la guerre, y compris les terres creeks de Géorgie et d'Alabama. En 1815, comme les Séminoles n'étaient pas intéressés à monter la garde dans un fort, le major Nicholls invita les esclaves en fuite à s'y installer. La nouvelle parvint aux Blancs du sud des États-Unis qui le surnommèrent Negro Fort (« Fort Nègre ») et y voyaient une dangereuse source d'inspiration à la fuite et à la révolte pour leurs esclaves Andrew Jackson désirait éliminer le Negro Fort, mais il était en territoire espagnol. En avril 1816, il informa le gouverneur de Floride occidentale que si les Espagnols n'éliminaient pas le fort, il le ferait. Le gouverneur répondit que les moyens à sa disposition, ne lui permettait pas de s'en emparer. Jackson chargea le brigadier-général Edmund Pendleton Gaines de s'occuper du fort. Gaines donna l'ordre au colonel Duncan Lamont Clinch de construire Fort Scott sur la Flint, juste au nord de la frontière avec la Floride. Gaines rendit publique son intention d'approvisionner Fort Scott depuis La Nouvelle-Orléans en remontant l'Apalachicola, ce qui impliquait de passer à travers le territoire espagnol et devant Negro Fort. Gaines dit à Jackson qu'emprunter l'Apalachicola pour approvisionner Fort Scott permettrait à l'U.S. Army de garder un oeil sur les Séminoles et le Negro Fort.

        The Federalist, or the New Constitution Association Copy of Clement L. Vallandingham

      Hallowell: Glazier, Masters & Smith 1837 - Association copy of Clement L. Vallandingham, a notorious Ohio politician during the Civil War whose outspoken support for the Confederacy resulted in his exile by President Abraham Lincoln. His signature is present on the front leaf: "Clement L. Vallandingham, Snow Hill, MD., March 16th." 1839. He may have received this book while he was enrolled in Jefferson College in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. He was honorably dismissed in 1841 after a dispute with the college president. His notations are written in ink throughout the book as well as a full page handwritten Index. This book must surely have played a major role in the development of his political views as well as his opinions of the government. Clement Laird Vallandingham (b. July 29, 1820 ¿ d. June 17, 1871) was an Ohio politician and leader of the Copperhead faction of anti-war Democrats during the American Civil War. He served two terms in the United States House of Representatives. Vallandingham was a vigorous supporter of constitutional states' rights. He believed the federal government had no power to regulate a legal institution, which slavery then was. He also believed the states had a right to secede and that the Confederacy could not constitutionally be conquered militarily. Vallandingham was a believer in low tariffs and in slavery, and he was one of Lincoln's most outspoken critics, referring to him in one of his speeches as "King Lincoln". Vallandingham gave a major speech on May 1, 1863 at Mount Vernon that expressed his sympathies for the South and a direct criticism of the Government, specifically the President,and the way the war was handled. Four days later, on May 5, Vallandigham was arrested as a violator of General Order Number 38. General Order Number 38 had just previously been issued by General Burnside warning that the "habit of declaring sympathies for the enemy" would not be tolerated in the Military District of Ohio. He was sentenced to confinement in a military prison "during the continuance of the war" at Fort Warren in Massachusetts. There were protests for his imprisonment from other political figures who believed his imprisonment unjust. Lincoln, who considered Vallandingham a "wily agitator", was wary of making him a martyr to the Copperhead cause and on May 19, 1863, exiled him to the Confederacy. Vallandigham travelled by blockade runner to Bermuda and then to Canada, where he declared himself a candidate for Governor of Ohio, subsequently winning the Democratic nomination in absentia. He managed his campaign from a hotel in Windsor, Ontario, where he received a steady stream of visitors and supporters. He subsequently lost the 1863 election to pro-Union Democrat John Brough. While in Canada, Vallandingham met with a representative of the Confederate Government about a possible revolt to establish a Northwest Confederacy consisting of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois. The revolt never materialized, though Vallandingham did have to testify at the trial of the conspiracy. After the Civil War ended, he lost campaigns for the Senate and House of Representatives and returned to practicing law.This copy of "The Federalist" is the fifteenth edition, reprint of the Gideon edition of 1818. Published by Hallowell: Glazier, Masters & Smith, 1837. Contemporary calf spine affixed to the original leather boards. Gilt titling on the spine with new endsheets inside. Measures 5.25" x 9", 494 pages. Wear to the boards with bumped and worn corners. Small scratches to the spine. Pen and pencil notations and underlining throughout. Foxing and toning to the textblock. Newspaper clipping and hand-written note laid in to the textblock. An incredibly rare association copy that helped influence and shape a prominent and controversial politician.

        Archive of Ribbons for Action and Decorum and Pertaining to Colonial Campaigns and Explorations

      British Empire, 1837-1919. Unusual collection of 146 ribbon bar swatches for service medals, awards, or special decorations, for decorum and chivalry, even one for Arctic Exploration, representing several nations from around the world, among them, England, Russia, Serbia, Australia, Africa, India and Burma. Each ribbon is identified with a manuscript caption, and neatly ensconced between two leafs with incised widows measured to a custom fit. The lot mounted mostly in alphabetical order. Qto. 4 pages. Large purpose made boards measuring approximately 31 x 36 cm. Quarter black cloth over brown paper boards, titled to front, the collector's signature "Bonell" to front pastedown. A delightfully reminiscent one-off volume. Spanning over eighty years, this collection of ribbon bar samples represents campaigns, expeditions and heroic service as far reaching as Serbia, Egypt and the Sudan, America, Australia, and the Arctic. The collection begins with several ribbons pertaining to colonial campaigns in Africa including Napier's Expedition to Abyssinia, the Second Anglo-Boer War, a Zulu revolt called the Bambatha Rebellion or the Natal Native Rebellion, and the Anglo-Ashanti Wars. Others represent Great Britain, New Zealand, Belgium, Italy, China, Japan, Turkey, Russia, Romania, Italy, Greece, Afghanistan, and more. Especially scarce are the four (4) ribbon samples from Roumanian awards and decorations, including the Croix de Virtute Militari, and the Medaille Barbatie si Credinta (1st Class). The Military Virtue Medal, a military decoration, first instituted in 1860 called Pro Virtute Militari, was established by Alexandru Ioan Cuza for the veterans of the Dealul Spirii battle (1848) between the revolutionaries and the Ottomans, but it was issued to the recipients later, in 1866, since Romania was still under Ottoman rule. The Barbatie si Credinta award (Manhood and Loyalty Medal) was awarded to non-commissioned officers and enlisted men for service to the Crown of Romania and for acts of bravery. Equally rare are ribbons for the Distinguished Flying Medal issued in 1918-1919 and the ribbon for the Distinguished Flying Cross Medal, both of which were created after formation of the Royal Air Force, each issued to a different rank of officers. To recognize and reward military service dating as far back as 1793 and up to 1814, one specific bar ribbon contained in this collection was used for the Military General Service Medal (MGSM). Approved on 1 June 1847 as a retrospective award, it was issued to officers and men of the British Army who participated in various military actions from 1793 to 1814, a period encompassing the French Revolutionary Wars, the Napoleonic Wars, and the Anglo-American War of 1812. A figurative chronicle of the colonial expansion of the British Empire, and the decisive battles that formed and re-formed the ever-growing nation, the following are some of ribbons which correspond to significant medals and awards of British interests: The Victoria Cross (VC) military decoration awarded for valour "in the face of the enemy" to members of armed forces of some Commonwealth countries and previous British Empire territories, introduced in 1856 by Queen Victoria following the Crimean War. It is the highest decoration of the United Kingdom honour system. [Mauve ribbon] The Distinguished Flying Medal military decoration established on 3 June 1918 after the formation of the Royal Air Force, awarded to personnel of the RAF and of other forces, and formerly also to personnel of other Commonwealth countries, below commissioned rank, for "an act or acts of valour, courage or devotion to duty whilst flying in active operations against the enemy". Also present is the ribbon for the Distinguished Flying Cross which was awarded for the same acts, but to commissioned officers and Warrant Officers. Both of these ribbons were used only in 1918-1919, subsequently replaced with a diagonal design. Remembering Afghanistan, a most colourful ribbon represents the Punniar or Maharajpoor Star medal, also known as the Gwalior Star, a campaign award presented to the soldiers of the British Army, by the Honourable East India Company, who took part in the 1843 Gwalior Campaign, with battles at Maharajpore and Punniar. [multi-coloured pastel ribbon] The United Kingdom's Afghanistan Medal which was awarded in 1881 to all men in the British Army and local Indian units who took part in the campaigns against Afghanistan known as the Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878-1880). [Fuschia and green ribbon] The Crimea Medal, approved in 1854, for issue to officers and men of British units (land and naval) which fought in the Crimean War of 1854-1856 against Russia. [Pale blue and yellow ribbon] A red and blue striped ribbon bar on represents medals issued for service in the Second Anglo-Burmese War 1852-1853, and also for the India General Service Award issued in 1854. The Tibet Medal which was awarded in 1905 for services in Tibet during the Gyantse campaign, issued to members of the British Tibet Mission (Younghusband expedition to Tibet), and to accompanying troops who served at or beyond Siliguri from 13 December 1903 to 23 September 1904. [Green, ivory, and mauve striped ribbon] The Indian Order of Merit (IOM), established in 1837 by the East India Company as a military and civilian decoration of British India, and for some time being the highest decoration that a native member of the British Indian Army could receive. [Navy blue and red ribbon] The China War Medal first issued by the British Government in 1843 to members of the British Army and Royal Navy who took part in the First Anglo-Chinese War (1839-1842), re-issued for those who fought in the Second Opium War (1856-1860), and used again for the awards in 1901 presented to British and Imperial land and sea troops who fought during the Boxer Rebellion of 1900. [Red and yellow ribbon] The Abyssinian War Medal, awarded for service between 4 October 1867 and 19 April 1868 to those who participated in the punitive 1868 Expedition to Abyssinia, led by Lieutenant-General Sir Robert Napier. [Fuchsia and ivory ribbon] The Indian Distinguished Service Medal (IDSM), awarded by the British Empire to Indian citizens serving in the Indian armed forces and police. When it was instituted in 1907 it was the second highest award available to Indians, behind the Indian Order of Merit, until 1911 when eligibility for the Victoria Cross was extended to all Commonwealth subjects. [Navy blue and burgundy ribbon] The South Africa Medal (1853), here captioned "Cape of Kaffir," to medal having been instituted in 1854 for award to officers and men of the Royal Navy and British Army who served in the Cape of Good Hope during the Xhosa Wars between 1834 and 1853. [White ribbon with thin and heavy navy blue stripes] Egypt Medal (1882-1889) and Khedive's Star (1897), both pertaining to the 1882 Anglo-Egyptian War. [One solid blue ribbon; One striped blue and white ribbon, respectively] Khedive's Sudan Medal (1911), awarded by the Khedivate of Egypt for service during the Mahdist War in Sudan (captioned here as Egyptian Soudan). Established 12 February 1897, by Khedive Abbas Hilmi Pasha, this medal was initially to commemorate the re-conquest of the Dongola province in 1896, a new medal instituted by Khedive Abbas Hilmi Psaha on 12 June 1911 replaced the previous medal, to recognise the services of those who took part in military campaigns and pacification operations in the Sudan. [Black, green and burgundy striped ribbon] The United Kingdom's Volunteer Force Volunteer Long Service Medal, instituted in 1894 and superseded by the Territorial Force Efficiency Medal in 1908. [Green ribbon] The British War Medal, a campaign medal of the United Kingdom which was awarded to officers and men of British and Imperial forces for service in the First World War. [Orange center stripe flanked with white, black and blue] The Cape of Good Hope General Service Medal, which was awarded to members of the Cape Colonial Forces who took part in three campaigns in and around the Cape of Good Hope, in Basutoland in 1880-1881, in Transkei in 1880-1881 and in Bechuanaland in 1896-1897. [Navy blue and orange ribbon] The British South Africa Company Medal, sanctioned by Queen Victoria in 1896, the medal to be issued by the company to troops who had been engaged in the First Matabele War. In 1897, the Queen sanctioned another medal for those engaged in the two campaigns of the Second Matabele War: Rhodesia (1896) and Mashonaland (1897). [Gold and blue stripes] A mauve and green striped ribbon captioned 'Canada' is evidently quite a scarce sample and requires further research to identify the medal with which it was associated. The United States of America Army Distinguished Service Medal, designed by Captain Aymar Embury, the medal was confirmed by an Act of Congress dated July 9, 1918. It was awarded to persons who distinguished themselves by "exceptionally meritorious service to the government in a duty of great responsibility" after April 6, 1917, in a combat or noncombat role. The first awards of this medal for service in World War I were to the commanders of the Allied armies. At the direction of the President of the United States, the medal was conferred upon Marshals Foch and Joffre and General Petain of France, Field Marshal Haig of Great Britain, General Diaz of Italy, and General Gillian of Belgium. [Red, white and blue ribbon, white being most prominent at the center] A number of ribbons herein correspond with awards that were issued by other countries to their gallant servicemen and most noble civilians. Some examples include: The Delhi Durbar Commemorative Medals, issued only in 1903 and 1911, this sample being a ribbon swatch for the first issue. The Delhi Durbar, meaning "Court of Delhi", was a mass assembly at Coronation Park in Delhi, to mark the succession of an Emperor or Empress of India. Also known as the Imperial Durbar, it was held three times, in 1877, 1903, and 1911, at the height of the British Empire. [This is a rare one-issue only ribbon swatch, sage in colour with three blue stripes] Six (6) Belgian awards including the highest national honorary order of knighthood, the Order of Leopold, named in honour of King Leopold I, a decoration which was established in 1832 and is awarded for extreme bravery in combat or for meritorious service of immense benefit to the Belgian nation. Four (4) Russian distinctions, including the Order of Saint George, the highest purely military decoration of the Russian Federation, originally established November 26, 1769 by Empress Catherine the Great. [Orange and black ribbon] Other samples are for the Order of Saint Anna, the Order of Saint Stanislaus awarded by the head of the House of Romanov, and the order of Saint Vladimir established by Catherine the Great. Japan's Order of the Sacred Treasure, which was established in 1888 by Emperor Meiji as the Order of Meiji, awarded for distinguished achievements. [White ribbon with gold stripes] The Kingdom of Serbia is represented with six (6) ribbons, including the Order of St. Sava, a decoration established by Milan I on 23 January 1883 to recognize civilians for meritorious achievements to the church, arts and sciences, the royal house and to the state. Also here is a ribbon which accompanied the medal for the Order of the White Eagle instituted on 23 January 1883 and conferred on both Serbian and Yugoslav citizens for achievements in peace or war, or for special merits to the Crown, the state and nation. Ribbons associated with Turkish Medals include the Order of the Medjidie - a military and knightly order of the Ottoman Empire instituted in 1851 by Sultan Abdülmecid I, and the Order of Osmanieh which was created in 1862 by Sultan Abdülaziz and became the second highest order in the Empire and generally reserved for men. Perhaps of special interest for the sake of recognising achievements and events outside of warfare, we find ribbons that held medals such as these: The Arctic Medal which hung from a white ribbon and was first instituted in 1857, has since been renamed the Polar Medal in 1904. The Admiralty issued the medal in 1857 for several expeditions, including the expedition to discover the fate of Sir John Franklin and his crew who were lost while looking for the Northwest Passage in 1847. The second presentation of the Arctic Medal was to the crews of three ships exploring the Arctic in 1875-1876. In 1904, the Polar Medal was inaugurated for members of Captain Scott's first expedition to Antarctica. It was also awarded to the crews of both rescue ships, the Terra Nova and the Morning. Subsequent medals were also awarded to members of Ernest Shackleton's expeditions in 1907-1909 and 1914-1917. [White ribbon] The Royal Humane Society Bronze Medal, introduced in 1837 and presented to anyone who had put their own lives at great risk to save or attempt to save another. The Society was founded in London in 1774 by two physicians, William Hawes (1736-1808) and Thomas Cogan (1736-1818). Both men were concerned at the number of people wrongly taken for dead and sometimes buried alive. They wanted to promote the new but controversial medical technique of resuscitation, and thus offered money to anyone rescuing someone from the brink of death. As a result of dishonest men acting out the scenario to claim and share the prize, monetary awards were quickly replaced with medals. [Navy blue ribbon] The Meritorious Service Medal (GV), first issued in 1902 in recognition of lengthy military service or a specific act of merit, and from 1916 onward, also awarded for "acts of gallantry or meritorious conduct when not in the fact of the enemy". [Fuchsia and white striped ribbon] The Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Medal instituted in 1897 by Royal Warrant as a British decoration, awarded to members of the Royal Family and the court, guests at the jubilee celebrations, and the soldiers and sailors that paraded that day in London. [Royal blue and white striped ribbon] Police medals for the Coronation of King Edward VII (1902); and the Coronations of King George V and Queen Mary (1911) [Red with blue stripes, each a unique design]. Three (3) unique samples pertaining to Queen Alexandra's Nursing Medal, issued by Queen Alexandra of Denmark who wanted each of her nurses to have a special badge and ribbon that would identify them as her QA nurses. Though the QA's were formed in 1902 (as the QAIMNS) it was not until 1905 that a ribbon and medal badge were finally decided. Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps, commonly known as the QA, is the nursing branch of the British Army and part of the Army Medical Services. The Kaisar-i-Hind Medal for Public Service in India, instituted by Queen Victoria on 10 April 1900, but no longer issued after 1947, was awarded to any person, male or female for distinguished important and useful service in the advancement of the public interest in India. [Bright blue ribbon] An early sample ribbon for the King's Medal for Champion Shots (now called the Naval Good Shooting Medal), a naval gunnery medal that was instituted in 1902 by King Edward VII. [The original bright red ribbon flanked with red and black stripes] And finally, a few examples representing Britain's prestigious orders of chivalry and honourable acts of gallantry: The Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem, awarded on a black ribbon pendant, for the royal order of chivalry chartered by Queen Victoria in 1888. [Black ribbon] An ordinary member of the Royal Victorian Order, a dynastic order of knighthood recognising distinguished personal service to the monarch of the Commonwealth realms, established in 1896 by Queen Victoria. [Royal blue ribbon with red and ivory stripes to each side] Both civil and military appointments of the chivalric order Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE), established in 1917 by King George V, and rewarding contributions to the arts and sciences, work with charitable and welfare organisations and public service outside the Civil Service. [Mauve ribbon; mauve with red pin-stripe, respectively]

        Lucia di Lammermoor Dramma Tragico di Salvatore Cammarano... del medesimo dedicata a S.E. Il Signor Marchese Del Carretto... Proprietà degli Editori Deposta all' I.R. Bibla. Fr. 30._. Fl. 11.30. cm. [Piano-vocal score]

      Milano: Gio. Ricordi [PN 10076-79; 10081-94], 1837. First Edition, second issue of the complete work. Very rare. Fuld p. 493 (where the first issue is distinguished by separate pagination). In three acts to a libretto by Cammarano after Walter Scott's novel The Bride of Lammermoor, Lucia di Lammermoor was first performed at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples on September 26, 1835. "Both historically and artistically, Lucia deserves its reputation. When it was new it was regarded as the apogee of high Romantic sensibility... Although all the principal roles are vocally challenging, their music is uniformly grateful... Cammarano's libretto moved him deeply and, inspired by his recent first exposure to Paris, Donizetti produced what is certainly his masterpiece." William Ashbrook in Grove Music Online..

        CORSO DI GEOGRAFIA UNIVERSALE. Sviluppato in cento lezioni e diviso in tre grandi parti / ATLANTE DI GEOGRAFIA UNIVERSALE. Per servire al Corso di Geografia Universale. 1837-1843.

      per V.Batelli e Compagni, 1837. Opera completa in sei volumi di testo + un Atlante. Cm.25,2x17,8. Pg.XII,344; 712; 404; 588; 432; 508. I sei volumi di testo presentano legature coeve in mz.pelle con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi e piatti marmorizzati. Il testo si suddivide in tre parti: la prima parte tratta del rapporto tra la Terra e l'Universo e della Cosmografia, la seconda tratta della Geografia fisica e la terza della Storia dell'Umanità. Anche l'Atlante, in formato cm.43,5x28, è legato in mz.pelle, con spellature alla marmorizzatura dei piatti. Esso è "preceduto da un vocabolario de' nomi tecnici della geografia, corredato di specchi statistici delle divisioni politiche della terra, ed arricchito d'illustrazioni e di una bilancia politica del globo" e contiene 65 carte a piena pagina oppure doppie, triple o quadruple, quasi tutte acquarellate a mano. La prima parte, "Cosmografia", consta di 14 carte; la seconda, "Geografia fisica", contiene 15 carte ed è così suddivisa: "Disegni del globo o mappamondi, in proiezioni diverse", "Tratti diversi della superficie dei continenti e la comparata altezza dei monti e la lunghezza delle correnti dei fiumi", "Ordine e stato dei terreni e delle roccie componenti la corteccia del globo", "Ipotetico stato del globo nelle sue diverse età e geografia dei vulcani accesi ed estinti", "Rosa dei venti". Segue la "Storia della geografia dai tempi biblici ed omerici infino alla scoperta del Nuovo Continente", con nove carte suddivise in: "Sistemi geografici di Eratostene, Strabone, Tolomeo, Pomponio", "Terra secondo gli Arabi, cognizioni geografiche dei Cristiani circa il 1300, itinerari delle Crociate". La quarta parte comprende "Geografia Statistica: Bilancia politica del globo e saggio di statistica di alcuni reami d'Europa", con 30 carte geografiche con bandiere dei vari paesi colorate a mano. La tavola della Rosa dei venti" è realizzata manualmente. Gli Atlanti del Batelli presentano spesso difficoltà di collazione, ma un provvidenziale "Indice dell'Atlante ed Avvertimento per il rilegatore del medesimo" in fine al volume ne attesta la reale collocazione. Si tratta probabilmente dell'opera più compiuta di Francesco Costantino Marmocchi (Poggibonsi, 1805-1858), rinomato geografo e cartografo. Di simpatie mazziniane, partecipò ai moti del 1831, quando venne incarcerato. Nel 1848 divenne Deputato nel Parlamento toscano, per poi ricoprire la carica di Segretario agli Interni sotto Guerrazzi. Viaggiò a lungo assieme al Gregorovius in Corsica, ove compì molti studi geografici. Codice libreria 105675.

        Wanderings and Excursions in South Wales:

      London: Tilt and Bogue; Simpson and Co.; and Orr and Co.; Wrightson and Webb, Birmingham; Webb, Liverpool; Simms and Dinham, Manchester,, [1837?]. With the scenery of the River Wye. With fifty engravings, from drawings by Harding, Fielding, Cox, Creswick, and Cattermole, and an accurate map. [Uniform with:] ? Wanderings and Excursions in North Wales. With fifty engravings, from drawings by Cattermole, Cox, and Creswick, and an accurate map. Together 2 works in 2 volumes, octavo (213 x 132 mm). Uniformly bound in near-contemporary red hard-grain morocco by Hayday with the gilt arms of the Prince of Wales centrally on the covers, with the three feathers and Welsh harp devices alternately in corners and in spine compartments, yellow endpapers, silk bookmarks, gilt edges. Together 100 engraved plates and 2 large folding maps coloured in outline (the map of North Wales with small cloth tape repair on verso). A touch of rubbing at extremities, but a fine set. A fine pair of bindings by London's leading binder of the 1840s and 1850s, with appropriately Welsh heraldic devices, perhaps done in celebration of the birth of Edward, the eldest son of Queen Victoria, in 1841. As Prince of Wales from 8 December 1841 to 22 January 1901, the future Edward VII held the record for longest-serving heir apparent until overtaken by the current holder of the title. The front pastedowns have the library shelf labels of Thos. D. Murphy. This appears to be the Iowan art publisher and author Thomas D. Murphy (1866?1928), whose company had a branch office in London. He travelled to England frequently and wrote a number of travel books, including British Highways and Byways (1908) and In Unfamiliar England (1910). Most institutional listings of these undated Birmingham-printed editions give the suggested date 1837.

        Part of the Cathedral - Burgos.

      Hodgson & Graves. London. [ 1837]. - Tinted lithograph with handcolor, mounted on thick card as issued, image 16 x 11 inches on sheet size 22 x 17 3/4 inches. Overall light soiling to support card, a few faint foxing spots in image, image overall bright and clean. A view which seems to be straight out of the imagination of the Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi, this is plate 25 from the deluxe first edition of David Roberts' first published set of views "Picturesque Sketches in Spain Taken During ye Years 1832 & 1833." Delicately handcolored colored at the time of publication, this edition, which was issued in a portfolio, cost more than double the standard edition. The plates were lithographed by many of the most talented lithographers of the day, this by T. Boys. Abbey (#152) notes that Roberts in fact worked on every stone, and that the views had an enormous sale, going through many printings. In this view, signed in the stone by Roberts, the ethereal Gothic Cathedral rises behind a colorful example of the local architecture on a street bustling with activity. An exceptional composition.
