Wenng, Carl Friedrich.
Munich, C. Wenng, 1845. Engraved map with outlines and travel routes in original hand colour. 640 x 544 mm. Constant ratio linear horizontal scale (1:7,000.000). Stored within a contemporary custom-made portofolio of blue boards with gilt borders and a giltstamped red lozenge-shaped label on the upper cover, "Karte zur Reise in den Orient" (638 x 558 mm). Remains of silk ties. Extremely rare separately-issued map of the Arabian Peninsula and the Middle East, prepared as a private commission by the naturalist Gotthilf Heinrich von Schubert (1780-1860) and the Austrian geologist Joseph von Russegger (1802-63), to commemorate the 1838 excursion to the Middle East made by Duke Maximilian Joseph of Bavaria (1808-88). The lavish pictorial account of the Duke's journey, published in 1839/40 by the artist Heinrich von Mayr, had not been illustrated by a map - a lack distinctly felt by many collectors and corrected six years later by the present production. - Geographically, the map is highly accurate: regions and sites are labelled meticulously with transliterated Arabic names (the table below the title also translates some Arabic geographical terms into German). Territories still controlled by the Ottoman Empire are coloured pink, while lands under the control of the Khedivate of Egypt (an autonomous vassal of the Ottomans which ruled from 1805) is coloured yellow. The itinerary of Duke Max's journey to Egypt, Palestine and the Levant is shown, by way of the tracks of his ship sailing in the Mediterranean and the names of the places he visited underlined by orange manuscript lines … [Click Below for Full Description]

ALGERIA
[c.1845]. Light card wrappered landscape 8vo. album, c.6? x 9?, containing twelve mounted roundels, 4½? diameter, with pencil sketches of scenes from the campaign culminating in the battle of Isly, and the bombardment of Tangier and Mogadir, each captioned in ink in a neat copper-plate hand. Some light foxing and browning, some of the leaves marginally stained, but overall very good, the album itself is probably of later construction, the sketches themselves near contemporary. Unsigned, undated, French, The drawings are competent, if not professional, the style dramatic and reminiscent of popular prints. Beginning with Bugeaud studying the disposition of the Adb el Kader's camp a variety of images from the Marshal's campaign are shown; the Chasseurs d'Afrique taking a standard; the rout of the camp; the famous ?exploit? of Colonel Morris - who in hot pursuit of fugitives from the camp found himself isolated with five hundred Chasseurs confronting six thousand Arab cavalry. The second group of six illustrations concentrate on the naval bombardments of Tangiers and Mogadir. The Prince de Joinville is shown planning his attack; the Suffren opening fire; and the Prince leading the taking of the Forts at Mogadir.

1845. Paris, Arthus Bertrand, 1860. 8vo. In later half cloth with the original printed wrappers pasted on to boards. With dedication from the author to front board: "a. m. le pr. Henri Barth / hommage XXX de l'Auteur / at. Malte:Brun". Small stamp to front board and verso of front board. Printed on good paper. Internally very fine and clean. 32 pp. (missing the map). ¶ Rare first edition with a most interisting presentation inscription from the author to the German explorer of Africa Henrich Barth. Barth is thought to be one of the greatest of the European explorers of Africa, as his scholarly preparation, ability to speak and write Arabic, learning African languages, and character meant that he carefully documented the details of the cultures he visited. He was among the first to comprehend the uses of oral history of peoples, and collected many. Afterwards, he wrote and published a five-volume account of his travels in both English and German. Malte-Brun published an extensive analysis of his African expedition.Malte-Brun, founding member of Société de Géographie and later secretary-general, was a French geographer whose father was also a geographer. He had a keen interest in the arctic and followed the Franklin Search period with great interest. This present publication details McClintock's Voyage of the Fox and summarizes the Franklin Search Period.Sabin 44171NMM 935.

1845. Condition: Very Good. Description: 'A NARRATIVE Of THE LOSS OF THE ROYAL GEORGE', by Samuel Horsey, 1845, fold-out engraving by title page, bound in wood recovered from the wreck by Major General Pasley, leather spine with gilt titles -- 4¼in. (11.5cm.) high The HMS 'Royal George' was built over 200 years after the 'Mary Rose', in 1756, but has a remarkably similar history. Like the 'Mary Rose', the 'Royal George' was a flagship, serving at the Battle of Quiberon Bay and the Battle of Cape St Vincent in the Seven Years' War. And, 237 years after the 'Mary Rose', the 'Royal George' also sank at Spithead. The ship was in harbour for maintenance work, and was therefore full not only of the crew but also of workmen and visiting family members. It sank after the ship was deliberately heeled to allow work on the hull, when water began to enter the ship through the lower deck gun ports. Lying as it did in a shallow harbour, the lost ship proved a major hazard. Early attempts were therefore made to salvage it; in 1782 Charles Spalding had some success, using a diving bell to retrieve some of the ship's guns. After this, the attempt was abandoned until 1834 and the invention of the Deane brothers' diving equipment. It was while salvaging guns from the 'Royal George', indeed, that the diving brothers were directed to the wreck of the 'Mary Rose' just one mile away, by fishermen. This book, printed by Samuel Horsey, tells the story of the ship's wreck and salvage attempts, illustrated with several small engravings. It is bound in wood salvaged from the wreck of the 'Royal George … [Click Below for Full Description]

First Letter written on first page only, inner pages blank. Second Letter written on first page [about thirty lines] and ten lines on second page. [1] 17 April 1845 [about 25 lines]: Parker seeks to board his slave Betsy during her "confinement." Parker had hired Betsy out to Luke. "I am sorry, indeed distressed, to think that Betsy should be a trouble to you, and I wish you, if possible, to board her out until after her confinement. I suppose this can be done. I have not myself a place here for her to lay her head, else I would send for her." [2] 29 December 1846: Parker requests that Luke hire out several of Parker's slaves "at once." "I find it impossible for me to leave Harper's Ferry until after the 1st of January. I wish therefore you would hire out Webb & his wife also for me, upon such terms as you think proper- & separately if that will be best. I leave the whole matter to you. I have hired all my men for $65 which was rather below the price in this county, & suppose Webb will bring the same. . . . Above all let it be fixed as soon as possible. . . . Betsey I presume will only bring her victuals & clothes. There is another girl [Juliana] who lived last year at Mr. Littleton's.

Single leaf folded to form 13" x 8" bifolium with integral address leaf, franked on verso of second leaf, wax seal, minor paper loss where seal was attached to address leaf. Light toning, vertical and horizontal fold lines, fold forming bifolium neatly reinforced. * Williams accepts an invitation from Francis E. Parker to attend the opening of Harvard's "New Law Library," which was housed in a recently completed addition to Dane Hall, the law school's home. A committee of three students, Francis E. Parker of Boston (Class of 1846), Anthony A. Penniston of New Orleans (Class of 1845) and Anson Burlingame of Detroit (Class of 1846), organized an opening festival on July 3, 1845. Current students and faculty, prominent citizens, alumni and members of the local bar were invited. J.M. Williams was probably John M. Williams, a Boston lawyer and judge, later chief justice of the Suffolk Court of Common Pleas.

Green, J[onathan] H
Boston: Redding & Co, 1845. Second edition, improved. Engraved pictorial half-title, six wood-engraved plates (2 signed by Tudor Horton), illustrations and tables to text. 324 pp. 8vo. Second edition of this popular work on the evils of gambling and the tricks and deceptions used to defraud the unwary, by the riverboat gambler-turned anti-gambling crusader Jonathan Green (1813-1887). Green's role as head of the New York Association for the Suppression of Gambling is described in Herbert Asbury's Gangs of New York. With chapters on cheating in poker, faro, and many other games. The first edition of 1843 is rare. This edition is notable for its 6 full-page wood-engravings showing, among other scenes of vice, fox hunters, card players, a "Louisville Murder" and a New Orleans gambling den. Two of the engravings are signed by Tudor Horton (fl. 1846-1854), who also provided the frontispiece and 8 full-page wood engravings for Green's 1844 confessional, Gambling Unmasked! or the Personal Experience of the Reformed Gambler (cf. Hamilton, Early American Wood Engravers, no. 908). Toole Stott 1064; Jessel 661 (for 4th ed.); not in Howes. Publisher's embossed purple cloth, spine decorated in gilt, pink endpapers. Chipping to spine ends, some browning to plates, previous owner's name stamped to front free endpaper, but an attractive, bright copy.

CLARKSON, Thomas
[Circa 1845]. Two small footed salt cellars or vases. Approximately 2.25" tall and 2.25" in diameter. White soft paste porcelain, each bearing the classic image of a kneeling chained female slave. On the opposite side of each is the printed phrase: "Take courage - go on - persevere to the last. Thomas Clarkson Age 84." Clarkson actually uttered the phrase at age 80 in 1840, at the anti-slavery convention in Freemasons' Hall, London. Presumably these vases would date from between 1840 and 1845, and were almost certainly either manufactured in England for the American export market (slavery having been abolished in England with the passage of the Slavery Abolition Act in 1833, after which time Clarkson focused his efforts on abolishing slavery in the U.S.), or manufactured in America itself. While we are somewhat out of our depths identifying porcelain, our consultations with others more expert lead us to believe the former. Fine condition, with no visible flaws. Rare - while we have seen other vintage abolitionist china - most notably the jasper ware "Slave Medallion" depicting the famous and similar image of a kneeling male slave, made by Josiah Wedgwood, we have never encountered these vases, and can find no reference to them.

Leopardi, Giacomo
Firenze, Felice Le Monnier, 1845, Edizione originale de «La Ginestra» e de «Il tramonto della Luna». Ottimo esemplare in gradevole e solida legatura ottocentesca, molto fresco e pulito (solo sporadiche fioriture). Celebre prima edizione delle «Opere» di Leopardi uscita per Le Monnier. Eebbe immediato successo, tanto che i primi due volumi furono subito ristsampati in tirature successive e sono oggi assai rari in prima edizione. In particolare al primo volume, che accoglie i «Canti», compaiono per la prima volta La Ginestra e Il tramonto della Luna, scritte dal poeta nel 1836, poco prima di morire. L’edizione fu curata da Antonio Ranieri «secondo l’ultimo intendimento dell’autore»: il testo dei «Canti» è dato a partire dall’esemplare Starita 1835 su cui Leopardi lavorò assiduamente, inserendo numerose modifiche e correzioni, fino agli ultimi istanti della sua vita. E anche la collocazione dei due inediti, alla fine della raccolta, rispecchierebbe le intenzioni del poeta. La forma attuale del libro, quella che tutti conosciamo, si è dunque cristallizzata qui per la prima volta.

WENNG, C.
Munich, 1845. 44.5 x 51.5 cm. (oversall sheet 55 x 64 cm.) Original outline colour. This extremely rare separately-issued map of the Middle East was made as a private commission by a group of Münich grandees led by Gotthilf Heinrich von Schubert (1780 - 1860), a prominent intellectual, especially to commemorate Duke Maximilian Joseph of Bavaria (1808 - 1888)] 1838 excursion to Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon. The Duke was a much-beloved, larger-than-life figure whose eccentric, yet kind persona and exciting adventures captured the imagination of both Bavarians and those beyond. In 1838, he led a party on a trip of cultural exploration to Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon, whereupon he gained extraordinary experiences, returning to Munich with stunning antiquities. Curiously, his official 1839 account of his trip was not illustrated by a map, so in 1845, Schubert et al. stepped in to make up for this oversight, producing the present fine work. Geographically, the map is highly accurate, featuring an especially meticulous labeling of regions and sites, employing transliterations of Arabic names (the table below the title also translates some Arabic geographical terms into German). The territories still controlled by the Ottoman Empire are coloured pink, while lands under the control of the Khedivate of Egypt (an autonomous vassal of the Ottomans which ruled from 1805) is coloured yellow.

Ireland / Canada / Spain / London / England / France, 1845. Softcover. Very Good. Handwritten letter book consisting of retained copies of letters written by Captain Wilson during four decades of his life, much of it in Ireland and Canada between 1809 and 1845. Measuring 10" x 8". 74pp. Approximately 29,000 handwritten words. Paper covers with string binding. Covers and internal book pages have small chips and age-toning, spine is detached from the cover thus very good. A letter book detailing the life of a Captain Wilson between 1809 and 1845. The book of handwritten copies beginning with his time in command at Carlisle Fort in Ireland. Wilson is often preoccupied with clerical and menial tasks, settling disputes and sending reports, until he is transferred to Bandon in May of 1810. Wilson moves frequently, spending less than six months to a year in each new post. Bantry, Bath, Hereford, Weymouth, Spain, Winchester, Paris, St. Vast, London, and other places before settling in Plymouth in 1820, before moving once again. Wilson writes about the negligence in the camps where he is stationed, often citing disrepair, grime, and alcoholism in the barracks. He also writes about his shares in the Gas Light Company and the Coke Company. Wilson's constant movement is due in part to his need for money. He frequently writes about his financial problems and with each move is hopeful to advance in the ranks and receive commensurate pay. He finally writes in 1818 about his desire to retire from the service and accepts half pay to avoid going back to Ireland with his regiment. Wilson … [Click Below for Full Description]

NATHAN, Isaac.
Sydney: W. Baker. Hibernian Press, King Street, Sydney, 1845. A bifolium sheet of music, 345 x 270 mm; unbound. A rare and fragile piece of early pianoforte music by the vibrant and mercurial musician Isaac Nathan, who had arrived in Australia just four years before this publication. One-time friend and collaborator of Lord Byron, and tutor of Princess Charlotte, Nathan was born in Canterbury, England in 1799. His father, a singer in the local synagogue, had instructed his son in the lore of traditional Jewish music and throughout his life Nathan forged links between Jewish music and mainstream European culture. In this respect he is best remembered for his collaboration with Lord Byron on the Hebrew Melodies of 1815. Nathan composed the scores for Byron's verse including the enduring She Walks in Beauty. Following Byron's self-imposed exile and early death, Nathan continued to work as a singing instructor and composer. He struggled with gambling debts throughout the late 1830s and finally sought a fresh start in Australia in 1841. He burst upon the parochial Sydney scene and quickly established a reputation as a singing teacher, composer and conversationalist, becoming a prominent figure in Sydney social circles. Nathan played an important role in the advancement of Australian music as Sydney became increasingly cosmopolitan following the end of convict transportation. Possessing tremendous curiosity and famous for his wit, he was a successful ambassador for Jewish culture and also did much to foster public appreciation of Aboriginal music and culture.
