        Autograph letter signed

      1844. Signed. AUDUBON, John James.Autograph letter to Audubon?'s sons, signed.Pittsfield, Massachusetts, June 22, 1844.Exceptional Audubon letter to his two sons, Victor and John, in which he directs the movement of monies connected with the publication of the great Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America.The octavo edition of The Birds of America was just underway when, in 1839, at the age of 54, Audubon decided to publish a large folio edition of North American animals. When his loyal friend John Bachman heard about these plans, he wrote, ?"The animals have never been carefully described, and you will find difficulties at every step. Books cannot aid you much. Long journeys will have to be undertaken. Several species remain to be added and their habits ascertained? Don?'t flatter yourself that this book is child?'s play— the birds are a mere trifle compared with this?" (Clark, 64). The scope of the geographical range was immense, comprising the British and Russian possessions in America, the whole of the United States and its territories, California , and part of Mexico. At ?"Minnie?'s Land,?" their home overlooking the Hudson River, Audubon and his sons kept a large tract of land where they kept deer, elk, and other animals which could be used as live models. ?"In addition to these resources, both Bachman and Audubon used skins from all over North America which were sent to them.?" Before the completion of the work, Audubon suffered a stroke which left him paralyzed and partially blind. Final preparations were made by Bachman, who contributed the text, and Audubon?'s two sons, particularly John, who actually did a number of the paintings. This revealing autograph letter to Victor and John, dated June 22, 1844, reads in full: ?"My Dearest friends, I reached our good friend Capt. [Samuel] Cummings, yesterday afternoon, and found all well. We contemplated going fishing early this morning, but it rained all night, and rains now; therefore we gave it up. I wrote to you all in the morning of yesterday, and advised Victor that he might draw on Barry & Bro for $1200 payable at Boston on the 25th instant. I repeat this, fearing that Victor might not having been in the city this morning, and wrote under that should that be the case, for [Georgianna] Mallory [Victor?'s second wife] to take the letter to Minnie?'s Land. This would save time at least. Why has not Johny answered Capt. C?'s letter containing money? I have seen many persons here, but cannot tell whether I will have a single subscriber or not! I go to Albany on Monday morning next and hope to be with you all on the 1st or the 2nd July. God bless you all, and Love to everybody, Yours always faithfully, John J. Audubon. [P.S.] Go to the city on the 3rd July and get a balance from the office. Take it home as soon as you can and put it on sec[retary desk].?"Fine condition, with only faint fold lines and small tear where seal was opened.

        Deutsch-franzosische Jahrbücher. 1ste und 2the Lieferung (all that was published). [Including: Karl Marx: Jur Judenfrage & Fr. Engels: Die Lage Englands].

      Paris, 1844. 8vo. Recently bound in perfect pastiche, in an excellent half leather binidng with elegant gilding and gilt leather title-label to spine. An old signature to title-page. A bit of dampstaining throughout. Some leaves with ligt marginal pencil-markings. (2), 237, (3) pp. [Jur Judenfrage: pp. 182-214; Die Lage Englands: pp. 152-181].. The very rare first edition of the double-issue (all that was published) of Ruge and Marx' seminal journal "Deutsch-französische Jahrbücher", which constitutes the actual beginning of Marxism. It is here that Marx' materialist conception of history is presented for the first time and here that we find for the first time the basis for Marx' critique of Capitalism. It is in the present journal, published jointly by Arnold Ruge and Karl Marx, that Marx' "On the Jewish Question" appears for the first time, constituting that which later became the basis of his critiques of capitalism, as well as Engels' "The Condition of England", which constitutes the forerunner of "The Condition of the Working-Class in England". The journal was created as a reaction to the censorship of the "Rheinische Zeitung", but only one issue - the present double number - appeared, in February 1844, four years before "The Communist Manifesto". The publication of "Deutsch-französische Jahrbücher" was discontinued partly because of Marx' differences in principle with the bourgeois radical Ruge and because of the great difficulties in smuggling the periodical into Germany.Marx' seminal essay "Zur Judenfrage" ("On the Jewish Question") constitutes his fundamentally important analysis of liberal rights. It is formulated as a critique of Bruno Bauer's position on the attempt of Jews to receive political emancipation in Prussia, which, Bauer argued could only be achieved if they relinquished their particular religious consciousness. Bauer's argument is that political emancipation requires a secular state and that in a secular state there can be no room for religion. Thus, true political emancipation presupposes the abolition of religion. In Marx' analysis, a secular state is not opposed to religion, it rather presupposes it. Arguing that the removal of religious or property qualifications for citizens does not mean the abolition of religion or property itself, Marx moves on to Bauer's analysis of political emancipation and concludes that, while individuals in a secular state can be spiritually and politically free, economic inequality still creates material constraints upon freedom. That theory, developed here for the first time, is what later comes to form the basis of his critiques of capitalism.It is in Paris in 1844, after his political flight from Germany, that Marx meets Engels, striking up the friendship that was to become one of the most important in the history of political and economic thought. The present publication is the first in which Marx and Engels are published together.Engels' great contribution to "Deutsch-französische Jahrbücher" consists in his "Die Lage Englands" ("The Condition of England"), a review of Thomas Carlyle's "Past and Present", according to Engels the only work in England to show "traces of a human point of view". The review presents Engel's view that the evils from which England suffered were social, not political and that democracy would only be a "transitional stage - either, as Carlyle thought, on the way to true aristocracy, or, as Engels himself thought, to "real human freedom". Engels also agreed with Carlyle about the religious roots of the social crisis - "We too are concerned with combating the lack of principle, the inner emptiness, the spiritual deadness, the untruthfulness of the age ... We want to put an end to atheism, as Carlyle portrays it, by giving back to man the substance he has lost through religion", he writes, and further agrees with Carlyle about "the revelation of history". This position represented the first step towards the joint position of Marx and Engels and what was later to develop into what we now understand by Marxism. Engels' seminal review was followed a year and a half later by his famous main work "The Condition of the Working-Class in England", where he further developed his position

        Albert Lunel. A Novel . In three Volumes .

      1844 - 3 vols., 8vo., a very good copy in the original maroon sand-grain cloth.First edition, Sadleir's 'really scarce' fourth state, with (instead of the half-titles) the following notice: '"Albert Lunel" was written by the late Lord Brougham in the years Eighteen Hundred and Forty-four, but for private reasons of his Lordship's, was not published. London, March 1872', and with the undated Charles H. Clarke cancel titles. The novel was printed and immediately suppressed in 1844, leaving, according to contemporary surmise, only five surviving copies. After Brougham's death a stock of sheets was discovered, sold off, and subsequently issued in boards with the original half-titles, titles, and labels, turning the first edition into 'one of the false rarities whose legends haunt the book trade' (Sadleir). Then the sheets were reissued in cloth, and finally in this fourth, uncommon, state.Albert Lunel is a beautifully written memorial to Brougham's daughter. A philosophical roman á clef, ostensibly set in pre-revolutionary France, it is about a real group of friends who stayed with the grieving author in his château at Cannes shortly after his daughter's death. Sadleir 353; Wolff 848.

        General view of Las Monjas at Uxmal

      Published by Vizetely Brothers & Co, London 1844 - Tinted lithograph. This beautiful and rare lithograph is one of the first and primary visual records of the rediscovery of Mayan civilization. "In the whole range of literature on the Maya there has never appeared a more magnificent work" Von Hagen. Frederick Catherwood was a British architect and artist with a strong interest in archaeology. These combined talents led him to accompany the American traveler and explorer, John Lloyd Stephens, on two trips to the Mayan region of southern Mexico in 1839 and 1841. These explorations resulted in Stephens' two famous works, Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan and Incidents of Travel in Yucatan. These immensely popular works, foundation stones in Mayan studies, were both illustrated by Catherwood and inspired him to undertake the series of larger lithographs. The Views. was produced in London, where Catherwood recruited Andrew Picken to translate his originals onto stone. Three hundred copies were produced. "Catherwood belongs to a species, the artist-archaeologist, which is all but extinct. Piranesi was the most celebrated specimen and Catherwood his not unworthy successor" (Aldous Huxley). Las Monjas (the nunnery) at Uxmal was named by the Spanish, who were reminded by the layout and care to detail of Spanish cloisters. It may have been a Mayan place of worship,possibly a cemetery. It is comprised of a quadrangle, perfectly proportioned, and embellished with sculpted friezes rich in Mayan religious imagery. Uxmal, an ancient Mayan city, in present-day Yucatan, Mexico is in the town of Santa Elena. Sabin 11520; Tooley 133 (gives a list of the plates); Von Hagen, Frederick Catherwood (1950), pp.91-95; Palau 50290; Groce & Wallace, p.115; Hill, p.47.

        THE OHIO COON CATCHER

      Columbus, Oh. 1844.. Four issues (7, 8, 10, 12), each 4pp. Large folio. Dbd. Old folds, with some separation at folds. A few small tears; small repairs to issue 12. Light soiling and foxing. Good. Democratic Party campaign newspaper, supporting James K. Polk for president. Published by Samuel Medary, the editor and publisher of the OHIO STATESMAN, this paper published twelve issues, Aug. 7 to Nov. 16, 1844 - from the time of Polk's nomination to his election. Medary, serving as the head of the Ohio delegation to the Democratic National Convention, led the nomination of Polk as the party's candidate. Full of anti- Whig and pro-Democrat sentiment and propaganda, the COON CATCHER promotes Polk's candidacy with news items, political opinion, testimonials of reformed Whigs, poems, and cartoons. One notable illustration shows a woodcut of fat and healthy "Coon of 1840" opposite a lean and sickly "Coon of 1844." The text around these two images reads, in part: "The coon of the present time is a different critter from what it was four years since. Then, plump and fat - now, it is leaner than any of Pharoah's lean kine. Its attenuated frame, consumptive and haggard look, is caused by the resistless tide of democratic Polk juice, which is spreading itself with an invigorating effect upon the body politic." The final issue contains the announcement of Polk's election, with the returns from the polls. Fewer than twenty locations for issues in OCLC.

        I monumenti dell' Egitto e della Nubia. Disegnati dalla spedizione scientifico-letteraria Toscana in Egitto.

      Pisa, Niccolò Capurro, 1832-1844. - Royal folio (747 x 554 mm). 3 atlas vols. (without text vols.). Half-title, 395 engr. plates (of which 137 are in original hand colour). Contemp. green half morocco on seven raised bands with giltstamped cover borders, double giltstamped spine labels and elaborately gilt spine. Marbled endpapers. The monumental, extremely rare atlas volumes of the "Monumenti" of Ippolito Rosellini (1800-43), the father of Italian Egyptology and one of the field's leading scholars of his age. The plates, many of which are splendidly coloured, depict Egyptian murals, architectural views, and plans of tombs. The massive set, divided into antique, profane, and religious monuments, was the result of an Egyptian expedition undertaken in 1828 with his teacher and friend Jean François Champollion, jointly funded by King Charles X of France and Leopold II of Tuscany (to which latter ruler the entire work is dedicated). Together with the works of Champollion and Lepsius, this is one of the pre-eminent coloured-plate publications of the 19th century. - A little browned in places (more pronounced near end of 3rd vol.); two plates creased in the blank margins. Embossed library stamp of the Wigan Free Public Library on title page: one of the many luxury publications acquired by the mining town of Wigan in Lancashire in the late 1870s after the local surgeon Joseph Taylor Winnard (d. 1873) had bequeathed the sum of £12,000 to the municipal library. The library's most prominent visitor is probably George Orwell, who researched his "Road to Wigan Pier" there in 1936. - Extremely rare; a single complete copy with all plates in auction records of the last decades (Sotheby's, 10 May 2011: £169,250).

        Manuscript log of the U.S.S. Delaware, kept by Robert Storer, during her final cruise home from the Mediterranean]

      1844 - Quarto. 62pp. Original brown cloth. Cloth moderately soiled and stained. Light dampstaining to some of the text. An American Navy Cruise in the Mediterranean Manuscript log book of the U.S.S. Delaware, kept by seaman Robert B. Storer, during the ship's final voyage. The U.S.S. Delaware was launched in October 1820. She spent most of her active duty cruising in the Mediterranean, where she served in the interests of American commerce and diplomacy in that area, though she also spent several years stationed in Brazil, patrolling the coasts of Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina to represent American interests during political unrest in those countries. She began her final voyage to the Mediterranean in February 1843, setting out from Rio de Janeiro. This log covers the last three months of the Delaware's active service, documenting her return voyage from the Mediterranean to Norfolk. She arrived home in March 1844, and was still at the naval yard in 1861, when she was set afire with other U.S. ships in order to keep them from falling into Confederate hands. The log begins with the ship at anchor in Mahon harbor, off Minorca in the Mediterranean. Storer keeps details of provisioning the ship and readying to sail for first 12 days of January. As is standard with ship's logs, he records speeds, winds, and weather conditions, as well as the positioning of the sails. Everyday events such as inspecting the crew or holding "divine service" on Sundays are noted, as well, as are sightings of other ships' sails and exchanging colors with passing vessels. The Delaware sights the coast of Spain and moves into the Atlantic around the third week in January; on February 2, crew member Jacob Lawrence, a marine, dies (though Storer does not say from what), and his funeral service is held the next day, and Lawrence's body is committed to the deep. Also of note, the Delaware investigates a wreck on Feb. 15: "At 7.45 hauled up the courses, hauled down the jib and laid the main and mizen topsails to the mast, and sent a boat to board the wreck. At 8.15 the boat returned from the wreck; discovered her to be the English Hermaphrodite Brig 'Halifax' of 'Halifax,' loaded with lumber, water logged and foremast sawed off, nothing living on board." The rest of the voyage is uneventful and relatively smooth, and the Delaware sights the Cape Henry light house on March 4th. The last few days are recorded as the ship is anchored at Hampton Roads, including a salute to the passing of former Secretary of the Navy, Thomas Gilmer, who died on February 28th.

        Eigenh. Aphorismen.

      [Wohl Paris, 1830er/1840er Jahre].. 1 S. Qu.-8vo (210 x 110 mm, Fragment).. Zwei in dieser Form unveröffentlichte Aphorismen: "Belohnung nach dem Tode für [gestrichen: gute] edle Hdlgn. hienieden. Gemeinheit: der Kerl will vom lieben Gott noch ein Trinkgeld dafür haben, daß er seine Mutter gepflegt, seinem Bruder ein Stück Brod gegeben. / Der Despotismus spielt [gestrichen: liberale] Komödie, wie die Liberalen mit ihm gespielt während 15 Jahren - wird sie auch nicht länger dauern". - Ersteren Vergleich greift Heine in seinen fragmentarischen "Briefen über Deutschland" von 1844 und nochmals in seinen "Geständnissen" von 1854 auf: Um das Jahr 1820 habe ihm Hegel, als der junge Heine von des Philosophen zynischer Auffassung von Transzendenz und jenseitigem Gericht schockiert gewesen sei, spöttisch geantwortet: "Sie wollen also noch ein Trinkgeld dafür haben, daß Sie Ihre kranke Mutter gepflegt und Ihren Herrn Bruder nicht vergiftet haben?" Die zweite Bemerkung enthält einen Anklang an die "Französischen Zustände" von 1832, in deren 2. Artikel Heine prophezeit hatte: "Wenn ich aber deshalb das Gedeihen einer Republik in Frankreich bezweifele, so läßt sich darum doch nicht leugnen, daß [...] die Opposition ebenso, wie sie einst fünfzehn Jahre lang mit einem Könige Komödie gespielt, jetzt dieselbe Komödie mit dem Königtume selber fortsetzt und daß also die Republik wenigstens für kurze Zeit das Ende des Liedes sein könnte." - Das Blatt etwas stockfleckig und mit Faltspuren. Im linken Rand Spuren alter Stecknadelheftung, korrespondierend mit der beiliegenden eigenh. Echtheitsbestätigung von Heines Neffen Ludwig Frhr. von Embden (1826-1904): "Die Handschrift meines Onkels Heinrich Heine, aus seinem Nachlaß einzelne Aphorismen".
