With an additional woodcut illustration on laid paper loosely inserted at pages 48/49. Lightly penciled sequential numbers in the margins of some pages, next to some (but not all) of the experiments associated with various apparatus. Cloth. The first 56 pages are the main catalogue of Pneumatic Instruments (with 105 woodcuts). The next seven pages are of hydrostatic and hydraulic apparatus, with an additional 14 woodcuts.

Ritchie was in partnership with Chamberlain at 313 Washington St [Boston] from at least 1850, but left in 1854 to start his own successful scientific instrument business, retaining the address on Washington St for his own business.

Dickens, Charles; Leech, John (illustrator)
Chapman & Hall, London. First edition, in the first impression, first issue binding, of Dickens's Christmas classic. Written in a mere six weeks at a low point in Dickens's career, and published at his own expense,A Christmas Carolrevived Dickens's fortunes, establishing a robust market for Christmas gift books that survives to this day. The characters of Scrooge and Marley, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim, are immediately recognizable even to those who've never read a word of Dickens: "'God bless us every one!' said Tiny Tim, the last of all. He sat very close to his father's side, upon his little stool. Bob held his withered little hand in his, as if he loved the child, and wished to keep him by his side, and dreaded that he might be taken from him." One of Dickens' favorite artists, John Leech would produce the illustrations for all his Christmas books. This copy matches Walter E. Smith's fourth state (formerly called "trial issue"), with red and green title page dated 1844 and yellow endpapers, the rarest of the four variants (Charles Dickens in Cloth, Part Two, 25-6). Smith notes the inaccuracy of the term "trial issue," as copies with the green and red title page were available on the open market. The binding of this copy matches that of the first impression, first issue binding as described by William B. Todd ("Dickens's Christmas Carol,"The Book Collector, 1961). This copy appears to be an unrecorded variant: Todd does not note copies of this binding with both the green and red title page and the yellow endpapers but, according to Smith, "the priority of green endpapers w … [Click Below for Full Description]

March 14, 1844. Wonderful autographed letter signed by C. Mercer to Joseph Gales in Washington regarding Clay's second campaign for president. This is a length letter describing Clay's campaign trip through the Georgia and South as the Whig candidate for President against the democrat James. K. Polk. The letter reads in part: <I>"After spending from 12 o'clock on Monday till this morning in Columbus, Mr. Clay left us to prosecute his long intended journey to Raleigh [?] He has some business to transact in Savanna, as I understand, and will visit Milledgeville, Macon, and Augusta before he leaves our state. His reception hitherto, at Mobile and all the towns and prosperous neighborhoods on his way thence to the frontier of Georgia has been one civic triumph. In Mobile, in [?] Montgomery and in Muscogee all parties combined to due him honor . . . He has resisted the efforts of his Whig friends to bring him out on any of the topics which now agitate the country . . . This now very confidentially received by many of the Whigs or Alabama that their state will vote for Mr. Clay . . . "</I> Despite the evidence of popular support, Clay lost the election by a narrow margin to James K. Polk. This second failed bid for the presidency ruined any chance he might have had for he White House, though he was elected by Kentucky to the Senate in 1849. Mercer's mention of Clay's stops in Raleigh and Alabama is significant. From there Clay wrote a letter, the "Raleigh Letter." attacking the opposition to Texas statehood on the grounds it might result in war with Mexico, only to contradict thi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Adolph von Menzel (1815 Breslau - 1905 Berlin). Deutscher Maler, Zeichner und Grafiker. Übernahm 1832 16-jährig die väterliche Steindruckerei. Brach ein 1833 begonnenes Studium an der Akademie der Künste in Berlin nach einem halben Jahr wieder ab, um sich autodidaktisch weiterzubilden. Erhielt 1839 den Auftrag zur Illustration der mehrbändigen Geschichte Friedrichs des Großen von Franz Theodor Kugler. Bis 1842 fertigte er dazu rund 400 Zeichnungen. Diese und andere historisierende Darstellungen zum Leben Friedrichs des Großen verhalfen ihm zu seiner besonderen Popularität und ermöglichten den Kontakt zum Preußischen Königshof. 1853 wurde Menzel Mitglied der Königlichen Akademie der Künste Berlin, 1856 zu deren Professor, unterrichtete aber nie. Er erhielt 1861 den Auftrag zum Monumentalbild der 'Krönung Wilhelm I. zum König von Preußen'. 1873 wurde das Bild 'Tafelrunde Friedrichs des Großen' vom Preußischen Staat für die Nationalgalerie angekauft. 1885 fand in Paris eine ehrende Menzel-Ausstellung statt. 1898 wurde ihm der Schwarzen Adlerorden verliehen, mit dem der erb … [Click Below for Full Description]
