A handsome broadside printing of Andrew Jackson's farewell address, printed within a decorative border on peach silk and headed with a portrait of President Jackson, topped be the eagle of the United States. Printing on silk was a popular practice in the early decades of the 19th century, and several variations exist of Jackson's speech - though none is quite so visually striking as this. In his farewell address Jackson urges, above all, the preservation of the Union.

        [Drop-head title:] Copy of all Correspondence between the Colonial Office and the Governor of Australia, touching the Free Pardon, and the Order for the Return of the Dorchester Labourers.

      London: Ordered, by The House of Commons, to be Printed,, 1837. Single folio sheet (338 x 215 mm). Unbound. Preserved in a cloth portfolio. Dutch library stamp to outer margin and shelf mark at head. Horizonal crease where folded; a little marginal chipping; a very good copy. First edition of the official government paper pardoning the Tolpuddle Martyrs (otherwise the Dorchester Labourers, or Six Men of Dorset) and allowing their return to England. Their sentences of transportation to Australia for forming a trade union had caused a public outcry in 1834. In England, agitation against the sentences began almost as soon as they were pronounced, and the outcry over the injustice of the case won the support of high-profile radical figures, including Daniel O'Connell, Fergus O'Connor, and William Cobbett. Less than a month after the trial the men were already being referred to as "martyrs". Under pressure, the home secretary, Lord John Russell, granted the men conditional pardons in June 1835, followed by full pardons in March 1836, although that news was not passed on to the men, who remained in assigned labour long after they should have been freed.

        Informe que la junta menor permanente de la Compa?ia de Minas Zacatecano-Mexicana, da del estado de esta negociacion en el tercer trimestre del a?o de 1837

      México: Impreso por I. Cumplido, 1837. First edition. Disbound. Removed from a larger volume, last plate almost detached else contents near fine.. 66 pp., [7] folded leaves of plates. The British had lost their shirts in the frenzy to invest in Mexican silver mines after 1821. "Between 1825 and 1850, a half-dozen British mining companies were established in Mexico. They all collapsed" (Ivani Vassoler, "The Mexican Mining Bubble that Burst," pp. 431-2). The original Zacatecas mining operations had also failed, but was reorganized as the Compa?ia de Minas Zacatecano-Mexicana, its charter published in 1835. The current report, the first issued by the company identifies a continuing host of problems, delays, equipment breakdowns, and rising costs due in large part to the price of quicksilver, which was controlled by the Rothschild Monopoly: "Uno de los muchos obstáculos que se han opuesto hasta ahora á la marcha prospera de la negociación, ha sido la escesiva carestía en todos los efectos de consumo, que ha destruido el justo equilibrio entre los costos y productos de aquella. Sabidos son los sacrificios que ha hecho la compa?ía, con particularidad para proveerse del azogue necesario á los beneficios, y también está al alcance de todos que comprado al precio á que lo ha hecho subir en los últimos meses su escasez en esta república, no es posible que se obtengan ventajas con las leyes que constan en el estado que precede de las haciendas de beneficio. Nos prometemos que este mal desaparecerá en el actual trimeste por la diminución que habrá en el valor de todos los efectos de que se hace un consumó diario en las minas, atendida la abundante cosecha de ellos que se esperaba, y muy particularmente por las remesas de azogue que nos hagan de Europa, en cumplimiento de nuestro pedido. Han llegado ya á Veracruz 300 frascos correspondientes á este, y sabemos que estaban comprados por nuestra cuenta hasta 1.000 quintales, que se nos enviarán en los primeros buques que se presenten. De este modo sacaremos todas las ventajas que sean posibles en el estado de monopolio en que se encuentra dicho artículo." In addition to the extensive financial data, the report includes detailed descriptions of the Ciudad del Fresnillo, the mines, processing operations, and banks. Other, smaller reports, were issued in 1840,1841, and 1842. Scarce. Not in BN Mexico (has 1841). Not in NUC (has 1840).

        Autograph letter signed "Stoltz Rosine" to Mr. [François-Joseph] Fétis, Director of the Conservatoire

      The present letter was written shortly before Stoltz made her Paris Opéra début, as Rachel in La Juive, on August 25, 1837. She remained there for ten years, and created a number of roles, including Ascanio in Berlioz's Benvenuto Cellini (1838) and Léonor in Donizetti's La Favorite (1840). Scandal forced her to resign in 1847, but she returned in 1854. She was especially praised for the intensity of her acting, and her vocal color and broad palette of timbres. Mary Ann Smart in Grove Music Online. Gilbert Duprez, whom the letter mentions, made his highly successful début at the Paris Opéra in Rossini's Guillaume Tell on April 17, 1837. When in the same year first tenor Adolphe Nourrit had to resign from the Opéra due to vocal problems, Duprez, his successor, had to take over many of his roles. "[Duprez] gradually... became the first great tenore di forza, despite a vocal tessitura limited in its lower range... In France he was praised as the first true Romantic tenor and for his excellent declamation and the smoothness of his canto spianato... Presumably through forcing his voice, and also because of the great number of performances he gave during his years in Italy where he had to sing as many as six times a week, a decline set in early; Berlioz greatly admired him in the vigorous music of Benvenuto Cellini in 1838, though noting (Mémoires) that his voice had coarsened somewhat. The story of the famous tenor's rise and fall in Berlioz's Les soirées de l'orchestre is largely based on Duprez's career. He composed a number of operas and his writings include L'art du chant (1845) and Souvenirs d'un chanteur (1880), a valuable account of his times and distinguished contemporaries." Sandro Corti in Grove Music Online. Fétis was "among the most influential musical figures in continental Europe for most of the 19th century, occupying key posts within the Franco-Belgian musical establishment and initiating significant cultural trends through his theoretical works and his concert activity... [He] was at the centre of a network of historians, librarians and early-music performers active in France and Belgium throughout the 19th century. His writings, though recognized as flawed, provided a reference point for such musicians and often offered valuable methodological models regarding the use of primary and secondary sources in the quest for historical information... His vast library and important collection of early instruments... were bequeathed to the Belgian nation: his library is housed in the Bibliothèque Albert Ier, his instrument collection forms part of the museum of the Brussels Conservatory." Katharine Ellis et al. in Grove Music Online. An interesting letter linking three important 19th century musical figures.. 1 page of a bifolium. Quarto. Postmarked Paris, June 3[?], 1837 and Brussels, June 4[?], 1837. In Ink. With integral autograph address panel to verso. In French (with translation). Stoltz graciously thanks Fétis for his letters of recommendation. She had wanted to wait until after her début to thank him, but that has been postponed, perhaps until the end of the month She will sing in Halévy's La Juive alongside Gilbert Duprez, who must learn his role. She is taking advantage of the delay by taking lessons with the noted tenor, Louis Ponchard, four times a week. "I was waiting to give you all my thanks until I had made my début, in order to disturb you just one single time from your serious work... The first role that I am to play is La Juive. Mr. [Gilbert] Duprez does not know the role of Eléazar at all, so he must learn it before then. He also has to perform [Louis Niedermeyer's] Stradella, [Meyerbeer's] Robert [le diable], and [Auber's] La Muette. You see from this list that there will be some time before I appear on the stage of the opera... " Slightly worn, soiled and foxed; creased at folds and corners; slightly faded; remnants of wax seal and minor abrasion and perforation to upper edge of second leaf; previous owner's small round blindstamps to lower margin. Together with a carte-de-visite waist-length photographic reproduction of the noted French mezzo-soprano published in Paris by Pierre Petit. Ca. 103 x 63 mm. with red borders.

Rosner wird, indem ich dies schreibe, (am 2ten July) schon in Gräz seyn; Ein Pfund wollte er, nach vielem Zugreden meinerseits, mitnehmen; hat er's gethan? Wohl bekomm's! - Welchen Titel sollen denn 'Die Royalisten' kriegen? 'Cromwell, oder: Der durch Liebe besänftigte Höllenhund.' Da würden sie doch hineingehen, nicht? 'Ludwig XI' geht um die Ecke. Das hab' ich mir gedacht. So oft ich an die k. k. Censurbehörde erinnert werde, empfinde ich einigen Trost, daß ich nicht nach Wien hab' gehen dürfen. Das ist ja 'n Elend! - Was werden wir nun für den elften L. herausbringen? Ich habe Herrn Pellet gleich geantwortet, und ihm 'Emilia Galotti' (Marinelli) vorgeschlagen; Schröder's 'unglückl. Ehe aus Delikatesse' (Graf Klingsberg), und Perin in D. Diana, die freilich sehr abgenutzt ist. Dummer Peter und Wiederholung vielleicht eines kleien Stückes? - Meine Rollen werden also seyn: 1) Clavigo - Karlos - u. Koch Vatel; 2) Jude Schewa; 3) Alter Klingsberg (v. Kotzebue); 4) Kromwell; 5) Skarabäus und Spitzkopf; 6) Franz (heißt die Canaille); 7) Bettler und König und Schauspieler; 8) --- (für Ludw. XI eine von den oben vorgeschlagenen Rathen Sie zum Besten, ich bitte!); 9) Shylock; 10) Rettung für Rettung; 11) Strelitzen (darin werde ich sehr gern spielen); 12) Polterer und Verschwiegene wider Willen (Kehraus!). Die nothwendigen Rollen und Bücher sende ich übermorgen an die Direkt, des Ständ. Th. in Gräz [...]." - Der aus Glatz gebürtige Seydelmann, ein Freund Karl von Holteis, begann 1816 seine Bühnenlaufbahn. Bereits 1819 hatte er in Graz gespielt; 1829 wurde er Mitglied des Stuttgarter Hoftheaters, wo er gleichzeitig Leiter der dramaturgischen Lehranstalt war. Von hier aus folgten Gastspielreisen in ganz Deutschland, dabei der realistischen Schauspielkunst zum Durchbruch verhelfend. Ab 1835 gastierte er regelmäßig in Berlin, wurde 1838 für das preußische Hoftheater engagiert und zum Hofschauspieler ernannt.

      London: John Macrone, 1837. [2],iv,[3-]350pp. Original paper boards, printed spine label. Lower board detached, upper board nearly so, spine chipped, edges worn. Copious pencil notations on endpapers and titlepage, pencil drawing on rear pastedown, with a few additional notation marks scattered through the text. Light tanning and occasional foxing. Good plus. In a half calf box. A copy of Arthur Brook Faulkner's travel narrative, styled as letters to Lord Henry Brougham, well annotated by William Thomas Beckford, writer and author of the Gothic novel VATHEK. Faulkner was an Irish physician and author known for his accounts of continental travel. Here, he writes rather snobbishly of his tour through France, Switzerland, and Italy in early 1837. Beckford, however, was not amused, and amongst his entertaining notes opined that, "This rambling author runs his furious truck & vulgar rig against established... governments with such umitigated virulence that one can hardly help feeling surprised that even Ld Brougham should have accepted the dedication of such a farrago of rank abuse & hackneyed ribaldry." Beckford's further detailed observations are written onto the front and rear endpapers as well as the verso of the titlepage, ranging from short quotation of passages to poltical commentary and notes on mythology. On the rear pastedown, there is a pencil drawing in Beckford's hand of a book cabinet designed for his home in Bath, Lansdown Crescent, where he housed a large portion of his library. A unique record of a prominent author's literary habits and opinions.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. München, 24. XII. 1837.

      1837. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt mit blindgepr. Monogramm. 8vo. Als Kronprinz, an den Philosophiehistoriker Christian August Brandis (1790-1867), als Kabinettsrat im Dienst seines Bruders König Otto von Griechenland: "Mein lieber Herr Kabinetsrath von Brandis, mit wahrem Vergnügen habe ich Ihren letzten Brief aus Athen erhalten, und darin alles das Gute gelesen, was Sie mir in Bezug auf meinen geliebten Bruder den König mittheilten, mit einigem Bedauern vernahm ich, daß Sie leider manche gerechte Gründe zur Unzufriedenheit mit Ihrem Aufenthalte in Griechenland [haben], und sogar sich mit dem Gedanken beschäftigten es vielleicht zu verlassen. Als ein Unglück für meinen Bruder und folglich für sein schönes Land möchte ich es betrachten, sollte dieses geschehen, da Sie Herr Kabinetsrath, zuversichtlich kann ich es sagen, der Mann sind, die geistige Wiedergeburt meines Bruders zu bewirken, daß, um dieses Ziel zu erreichen, es wünschenswerth, ja selbst unumgänglich nöthig ist, daß Sie sich hierüber vertrauensvoll mit dem Herrn Präsidenten von Rudhart benehmen und über die beyderseits einzuschlagenden Weg verständigen, so habe ich deßhalb an ihn geschrieben, und ich hoffe er wird nicht anstehen sich Ihnen zu nähern, so wie ich von Ihrer Seite überzeugt bin daß Sie ihm in dieser Beziehung freundlich entgegenkommen werden; sollte Herr von Rudhart vielleicht zaudern, so ersuche ich Sie, sich auf das hier Gesagte szützend und berufend, dann die Initiative zu erfreifen. Ich ersuche Sie dringend der schönen Aufgabe zu Liebe in Ihrer segnungsvollen Stellung auszuharren [...] Die Königinn meine Mutter läßt Sie namentlich ersuchen Herrn von Rudhart auf alle Punkte im Wesen meines Bruders aufmerksam zu machen, worauf zu wirken für ersprießlich finden!" - Das Schreiben kam zu spät: Ignaz von Rudhart, nach dem Sturz des Grafen Armansperg am 14. Februar 1837 griechischer Ministerpräsident, war bereits am 20. XII. 1837 zurückgetreten; wenige Monate später sollte er auf der Rückreise in Triest sterben. - Spätere Numerierung "450" in blauer Tinte.

        Samlade dikter. 1-2. [Sammanbunden med:] Erik Gustaf Geijer (red.): Litteratur-bladet [...] N:o 2. Februari Månad. 1838.

      Upsala, Leffler & Sebell, 1837-8. 8vo. viii + 334; + [ii] + 388 pp. [Och:] Stockholm, P. A. Norstedt & Söner, [1838]. (=Vol. 1, s. 17-32.) Samtida danskt halvfranskt band, guldornerad rygg med fyra upphöjda bind. Bandet nött, ngt skört och med kapitälskador, svaga falsar, de första och sista bladen ngt lagerfläckade. Främre spegeln med dikutgåvans främre omslag uppfodrat, med Atterboms egenhändiga dedikation a tergo: "Till Chr. Molbech med oförändrad ungdomsvänskap från Diktaren". Ett mycket fint associationsexemplar av första samlingen av Atterboms dikter, sammanbunden med Geijers berömda recension i Litteratur-bladet. Den danske historikern och språkmannen Christian Molbech (1783-1857) hade lärt känna Atterbom under sin resa i Sverige 1812. De möttes åter när Atterbom besökte Köpenhamn 1825, vid vilket tillfälle Molbech hälsade honom med en fin dikt. De utväxlade även en mängd brev mellan Uppsala och Köpenhamn genom åren. 1843 tillägnade Atterbom sin vän andra delen av sin svenska litteraturhistoria, Svenska Siare och Skalder: "Till den äldste af mina danska vänner Christian Molbech egnas dessa blad med djup tacksamhet".Föreliggande exemplar av Atterboms samlade dikter kan följas i Atterboms och Molbechs brevväxling. Den 3 maj 1838 tackar Molbech för den första delen, medan den andra ännu inte anlänt. Okunnig om hur förkrossad Atterbom var över Geijers recension i Litteratur-bladet råkade Molbech till och med skriva att han delvis höll med om den! Han planerade även att själv skriva en artikel om Atterboms poesi. Atterbom i sin tur berättade om hur han upplevde Geijers artikel i ett långt fint brev i oktober, varefter Molbech försiktigtvis undviker ämnet i fortsättningen. Han upprepar dock att han gärna vill skriva en egen artikel, om han hinner. (Det gjorde han uppenbarligen aldrig.) I mars 1839 kan han äntligen tacka Atterbom för andra delen av dikterna, som Atterbom skickat med en vän nästan ett år tidigare.Geijers artikel, som är medbunden här, har Molbech naturligtvis inte fått av Atterbom, utan av Henrik Reuterdahl (brev daterat April 15, 1838). Det finns olika tolkningar av denna ryktbara recension, en av de händelser 1838 som signalerade Geijers "avfall" från konservatism till liberalism. En del har betraktat den som taktlös och örättvis, andra menar att den på ett rättvisande sätt pekar ut både starka och svaga sidor i Atterboms romantiska poesi. John Landquist uppger att Geijer efter att ha läst första delen avsåg att skriva en berömmande recension, men ändrade sig efter att ha tagit del av Atterboms skrytsamma och pretentiösa efterord i andra delen. Efter den inledande fnurran lyckades Atterbok och Geijer trots allt förbli vänner.

        Wanderings and Excursions in South Wales: 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.

      London: Tilt and Bogue; Simpson and Co.; and Orr and Co.; Wrightson and Webb, Birmingham; Webb, Liverpool; Simms and Dinham, Manchester, [1837?] - 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. A touch of rubbing at extremities, but a fine set. 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 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. A note at the end of each volume states that the two volumes were issued uniform with each other, and that they are "new and improved" editions.

        Col. Peel [Portrait]

      London, 1837. Etching, 225 x 155 mm.; in fine condition, framed. A portrait of Colonel Thomas Peel - cousin of Sir Robert Peel - the promoter of free settlement at Swan River.After losing his controversial Swan River land grant due to the late arrival of his ship Gilmore, Peel established the small settlement of Clarence (today known as Woodman's Point), to await the arrival of his ships the Hooghly and the Rockingham. After further misfortunes, including the wrecking of the Rockingham during her landing, Peel eventually brought his remaining settlers to Mandurah, where he lived until his death in 1856. He is remembered today by Peel Estate, an area famous for its vineyards.

        New Plan of London 1837. Published for the Proprietors of the Guide to Knowledge.

      1837 - Wood engraving, printing white on a black background, 335 x 510 mm, dissected and mounted on linen, with brown paper end-papers, the linen backing stained on verso. London : William Edwards, Very unusual map of London, engraved in such a way that the features of the map appear as white lines and letters on a black background, characteristic of the series of maps in William Pinnock's 'Guide to Knowledge', for which it was prepared, but quite unlike pretty much any other series of maps. The map covers central London from London Zoo and the Regents Canal to Vauxhall Bridge, and from Hyde Park to the Mile End Road. Published early in the railway era, the map marks only the Birmingham Railway into Euston Station, and the Greenwich Railway into London Bridge Station, while large parts of Chelsea, Victoria and south-eastern London are still fields. Among the new developments shown are the Brunel's Thames Tunnel, from Rotherhithe to Wapping, a remarkable feature of engineering, and the proposed Hungerford Foot Bridge across the Thames to Charing Cross.

      1837. 1 S. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief) und Siegel. An den Studenten Carl von Schlitz, gen. von Goertz (1822-1885) in Würzburg: "[...] Am Himmelfahrtstage regnete es den ganzen Tag, so daß nicht einmal die gewöhnlichen Spaziergänge vorgenommen werden konnten. Selbst an Pfingsten sah der Himmel sehr drohend aus. Demungeachtet machte sich ein Häufchen nach dem andern auf den Weg; einige am 14ten, andere erst am 15ten May. - Abends den 15. trafen sie sämmtlich, gehörig durchnäßt, doch wohlbehalten, wieder hier ein. | Die letzten Berichte, welche wir von Dr. [Siegmar] Lenz und v. Planta erhielten, waren aus München, wo sie von den Eltern unseres Welsch und dem Herrn von Hagedorn - dessen Du dich wohl noch entsinnen wirst - sehr freundlich aufgenommen wurden. Am 12ten dto. gedachten sie in Reichenau - dem Landsitze des Herrn Obersten von Planta, einzutreffen. Also wirst Du nun in Würzburg bleiben! Das wird ja Dir und Deinem verehrten Herrn Oheim recht sein. Empfiehl mich demselben, dem Herrn Grafen Hermann und Herrn Abeken angelegenlichst [...]". - "Salzmann's nicht zu unterschätzendes Verdienst ist es, daß er die schöpferischen Ideen seines Vaters in gleichem Geiste mit Verständniß und Geschick für die praktischen Zwecke der Erziehung mit Erfolg zu verwerthen verstand."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Berlin, 12. I. 1837.

      1837. 3 SS. 8vo. Wohl an Friedrich von Raumer (1781-1873): "Entschuldigen Sie, wenn ich so frei bin, dieselben mit einer großen Bitte zu beläßtigen. Ich habe nemlich [!] aus dem Oratorium Susanna von Händel, eine kleine Arie erhalten, die wundervoll ist, welche aber mit englischem Texte ist, da sie so kurz ist, würde ich ergebenst bitten, wenn es Ihre Geschäfte zuließen, die große Güte zu haben, den Text zu übersetzen. Ich bin so frei die Noten beizulegen. Ich habe gehört Sie sind nicht wohl, sonst wäre ich selbst gekommen. Nochmals bitte ich um Entschuldigung [...]". - Als Zofe einer adeligen Dame nach Wien gekommen, von Emanuel Schikaneder entdeckt und von Antonio Salieri ausgebildet, debütierte die große Sängerin 1803. Napoleon - der sie 1809 erstmals hörte und zutiefst bewunderte - wollte sie nach Paris holen, was aber durch ihre im selben Jahr geschlossene Ehe verhindert wurde. "Ihre größten Triumphe feierte sie zu Berlin, wo sie 1816 als Primadonna engagiert wurde und bis 1829 sang (sie überwarf sich mit Spontini)" (Riemann, Musiklexikon, 11. Aufl., 1929, zit. n. DBA II 898, 210). Ihre Stimme in Verbindung mit einer ungewöhnlich großen mimisch-dramatischen Begabung inspirierte derart, daß u. a. Beethoven den "Fidelio" und Cherubini die "Fanisca" für sie schrieb; Schuberts Oper "Alfonso und Estrella" hingegen lehnte sie ab, "da die Rolle der Estrella ihr als zu lyrisch nicht lag" (MGG IX, 291).
