      VALPARAISO MEXICO 1838 - On offer is an original, very unique three [3] page handwritten manuscript relic of the Mexican "Pastry War" of 1838. [The War was known in Spanish as 'Guerra de los pasteles' or 'Primera Intervención Francesa en México' meaning the 'first French intervention in Mexico'; French: 'Guerre des Pâtisseries' was an invasion of Mexico by French forces in 1838.] Dated Valparaiso 15 Sep. 1838, this is a manifest of sales from 'Lady Adams' cargo at Valparaiso. In addition to the numerous itemized goods/ prices of goods from Paris [plus goods from Glasgow Scotland, Marseilles France, and Spain] there are manuscript notations by way of a report providing content regarding the conflict and commercial repercussions in part: ". A great many of the Lady Adams' Silks are now out of season, but as they are fancy articles we shall endeavor to close them, as we have found that it does not answer to hold such articles. Within a week there has been a good demand for the Mexican market which has enabled us to make some good sales particularly of the Brandy. & should the blockade of Buenos Ayres & the Eastern sea board of Mexico by the French be continued for any length of time, the demand for these markets will continue." Here are some historical notes from one online source: The Mexican Pastry War (Nov. 1838-March 1839) is now mostly a forgotten footnote in history but supremely interesting for its moment in time: In 1838, a French pastry cook by the name of Monsieur Remontel claimed his shop in Mexico City had been ruined by looting Mexican officers. France, having had other complaints by French businessmen in Mexico and eager to reclaim other Mexican debts, demanded 600,000 pesos in damages. When Mexico refused to pay, King Louis-Philippe (1773-1850) ordered a fleet under Rear Admiral Charles Baudin to blockade all Mexican ports, to bombard the Mexican fortress of San Juan de Ulua, and to seize the port of Vera Cruz. Baudin captured virtually the entire Mexican navy, and Mexico declared war on France in December of 1838. The U.S. government got involved, sending the Schooner Woodbury to help in the blockade. Seeing a rare opportunity, former Mexican hero Santa Anna came out of retirement and offered his services. Gathering up an army, Santa Anna engaged the French forces and was wounded in the leg which was later amputated. Santa Anna used his newly reclaimed fame to regain power in the Mexican government. Under the diplomatic intervention of England, the French forces agreed to withdraw on March 9, 1839, and the government of Mexico promised to repay its debts. The brief "Pastry War" was over. Material that relates directly to this war is extremely uncommon. Folds, otherwise in excellent condition. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall

      Government Printing Office, 1838., 1838. First edition. 8vo. 7 pp. In the House of Representatives, May 31, and June 1, 1838 - the Committee of the Whole, on the bill of suppress Indian hostilities, Mr. Turney addresses the committee claiming that his colleague, Mr. Bell, said that "friends of the Administration" were prepared to vote on this bill without discussion even without examining the subject, forming opinions of their own, but voting with confidence in the Executive who'd recommended it. Furthermore, he claimed that the party was unwilling to afford the Opposition time to examine and form opinions on the bill, which he claims to be a lie. Apparently Mr. Bell also claimed the President appointed unqualified agents who'd used their appointments for the purpose of speculating on Indians, and that these were the causes which led to and produced the Creek and Florida wars. Again, Turney objects and offers rebuttal. Turney goes on to discuss Bell's proposal of an amendment to offer to the Indians which would divert 2 million dollars of the sum in the bill to the President to use in negotiating with the Indians. Turney offered an amendment be adopted to the bill whereas all extraordinary expenses in the execution of this treaty, produced by either their hostile movements or obstinate refusals to execute their leaving, should be deducted from the five million six hundred thousand dollars given them for their lands. He is opposed to paying the, "lazy, thieving, and murderous savages" for their friendship. Goes on to speak about sympathy towards the Indians and why there needs to be none; the war in Florida, monies being spent, his feelings that Mr. Bell denounced the of the Administration of Gen. Jackson, etc. Very interesting.

        Music and Friends; or, Pleasant Recollections of a Dilettante. In Two [Three] Volumes.

      London: Longman Orme Brown and Longman. Combe and Crossley Leicester 1853 1838 - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 3 volumes. Large 8vo, 220 x 136, pps. xii, 476; viii, [481] - 886, x; xv [xvi index], 282 [384 blank], including half-title in each volume, catalogue of author's works at end of volume 2, list of subscribers in volume 3, printed music included in pagination, later 19th century half green morocco, spines ornately gilt in compartments to a floral motif, with dates of volumes intricately included at foot of each spine, top edges gilt; extremities a bit worn, front hinge volume 1 very slightly cracked, but generally an attractive set. Gardiner (1770 - 1853) was one of England's more interesting "amateur" musicians, diarists, and chroniclers of musical matters in the first half of the 18th century. Musically precocious (in his 60th year he recognized a tune that he had first heard when he was one), he eschewed the life of a manufacturer of hosiery that his father had intended him for. He used the compositions of various composers to create one of his first publications, Sacred Melodies (1812 - 1838). The work covers not only music and musicians, but occasionally touches upon political topics, e. g.: "October, 1794, when spending an evening at Lincoln with my friend Henry Banks, the post brought the news of the acquittal of Thomas Hardy and Horne Took for high treason. Great disappointment was expressed by the whole company at this unexpected verdict, and the execrations against the jury were loud and long. I was shocked at their illiberal opinions and silly apprehensions; that evening, which began with merriment and music, ended in sour disappointment." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Collection of Letters and Manuscripts Concerning the Last Days and Death of Thomas Paine, 1838

      - Group of six items, 13 pages total, manuscripts inscribed on various size sheets, mainly quarto and folio, in generally good clean condition, one manuscript with tape repairs and some splitting to folds. Because of his atheism and ¿radical¿ politics, the famed author of ¿Common Sense¿ was the most controversial notable of the American Revolution and early nineteenth century. A shelf of 19th century Paine biographies hotly debated his alcoholism, disreputable relations with women ¿ and whether, on his deathbed in 1809, the notorious atheist and free thinker had ¿found religion.¿ In 1808 Paine moved to Greenwich Village from New Rochelle. By the time of his death a year later he had been largely forgotten. Only six mourners attended the funeral, the manuscript accounts contained in this collection contain the recollections of some of the few who remembered him and attended him at his death. The materials in this collection record an investigation made less than twenty years after the death of Thomas Paine, when many of those who knew Paine in later life were still living ¿ including the investigator himself: Grant Thorburn, a Scottish immigrant to New York who became prosperous selling seeds imported from England, and, in 1834, published an autobiography1 in which he provided an ¿unvarnished account of Paine¿s manner of life,¿ and in a subsequent work, published in 18522, provides sixty years of reminiscences of life in America which further elaborates on Thomas Paine, in which he explained how he had come to know Paine in the last years of his life, when ¿his company [was] shunned by the more respectable of his friends on account of his unpopular writings and hard drinking¿ and after his divorce from a ¿respectable young woman¿ who accused him of ¿cruel usage.¿ Thorburn often visited Paine at his New York lodgings to argue politics and religion, later concluding that he was ¿the most unreasonable mortal I ever conversed with.¿ After writing a critical magazine account of Paine which ¿brought all the free-thinkers between Passamaquoddy and Baltimore on my back¿, Thorburn decided to undertake this historical inquiry of his own, in conjunction with William Giles Goddard, a newspaper publisher and Professor at Brown University. Thorburn was diligent in tracking down and interviewing Mary Rascoe, a Quaker neighbor of Paine¿s who often took him refreshment while he was sick and dying and scribbling out a manuscript recanting his Atheism, which she believed was suppressed by his former friends. Thorburn himself doubted this, learning from Paine¿s Doctor that when Paine screamed ¿Jesus!¿ as one of his last words, he was swearing in pain. The present papers are apparently unknown to any Paine biographer. Inventory of collection: 1. Grant Thorburn, Halletts Cove [Long Island], March 5, 1838 to William L. Stone, folio, two letters, two pages. The first considering whether Paine was a ¿Licentious Character¿ the second enclosing letters concerning an account of Paine by William Carver. 2. Grant Thorburn, New York, May 14, 1838 to William G. Goddard, Providence, 1 page, requesting the return of manuscript sketch of Paine¿s life which he had sent him earlier. 3. Unsigned and undated letter, apparently to Thorburn concerning ¿the attack upon, or the defence of Paine alluded to by your friend Goddard,¿ and which criticizes the first biography of Paine: ¿Cheetham¿s Life of Thomas Paine,¿ which appeared after Paine¿s death, in which the author recounts his own experience at Paine¿s deathbed. The anonymous author of this letter states that he was holding Paine¿s hand as he expired. Quarto, 4 pages. 4. Four page manuscript headed: ¿The Life of T.P.¿ unsigned and undated, sent to William G. Goddard, Providence, Rhode Island, the address leaf is free franked by Rhode Island Congressman, J. L. Tillinghast, [write for fuller description]

        Trogon Ambiguus (Doubtful Trogon)

      London 1838 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became and expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was about to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand color them. Gould became the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain, creating over three thousand plates of birds in over forty volumes. Gould conceived of a specialized monograph on the trogons as a complimentary volume to his book on the toucans. The two highly colorful species were the only birds for which he created monographs, dedicated to one sort of bird rather than those of a particular geographical area. A Monograph of the Trogons was published from 1858-1875, and contains forty-seven hand colored lithographs. Gould's illustrations for the Trogons are some of the most magnificent that the ornithologist ever produced. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Trogon Ambiguus, measures 22" x 15" and is in excellent condition with evidence of verso page text. Commonly called the Doubtful Trogon, this bird is magnificently colored in rich shades of crimson and green. White and black coloring are used detailing the intricate patterns on the wings and tails of the Doubtful Trogon. From the head to the tip of the tail, the blending shades of green and copper give the bird an iridescent sheen and the lines on the body expertly shape and define the feathers and tail. The Doubtful Trogon is perched in a tree, with similarly colored flowers and detailed leaves, looking at the small caterpillar walking along a flower bud above.

This trogon, commonly called St. Domingo Trogon or Rosy-vented Trogon, is exquisitely colored with rich shades of purple, pink, blue and green. The wings and tail of the Rosy-vented Trogon are expertly patterned in black and white. The blending of colorings throughout the length of bird creates dimension, as does the fine lines and detailing of the feathers and other characteristics.
