        An original design for a porcelain plate

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing. A rare example of an original watercolour design for porcelain, by the Samson factory of Paris. This finished design was intended as a reference source from which the porcelain painters could work, using the design as a guide for the colours and image to be transformed from paper into fine porcelain. The French porcelain manufactory of Samson & Cie. was established by "Edmé Samson (b. Paris, 1810; d. Paris, 1891) at 7, Rue Vendôme (later Rue Béranger) in Paris. The intention of the firm was to reproduce ceramics from museums and private collections, and it claimed that all such reproductions would be distinctly marked to avoid confusion with the originals. In 1864, the factory was moved to Montreuil by Samson's son, Emile Samson (1837-1913). The range of wares included copies of 18th-century porcelain from such factories as Sèvres, Chelsea, Meissen and Derby, Chinese export-wares, especially armorial wares decorated with famille rose colours and mugs decorated with the Fitzhugh pattern, Delftware, Iznikware, maiolica and faience."

        Circular of the Ohio Ladies' Education Society sent to Ohioans in 1845 to raise funds "to aid a large and interesting class of colored youth, who are thirsting for knowledge" noting that "the increasing colored population of this State … taxed to educate poor white children … often unable to furnish means for their own education…"

      Cincinnati, Ohio, April 9 [1845]. 7.75" x 9.85". "Printed Letter Signed ""Mary A. Blanchard, Sec'y."" in type, 1 page, 7.75"" x 9.85"". Integral leaf addressed in unknown hand to ""Alvin Wales / Massillan / Stark Co. / Ohio,"" postmarked Cincinnati, April 9 [1845]. Light toned spot on letter from show through. Fine condition.Headed ""Circular of the Ohio Ladies' Education Society."" In part, ""…The increasing colored population of this State, deprived of the benefits of the system of Common Schools, and oppressed and opposed by their enemies; taxed to educate poor white children when they have any property, and when they have not, often unable to furnish means for their own education; coming, as many of them do, houseless, naked and ignorant, from slavery - their imploring cry to us is, 'come over and help us!' Without aid from abroad, your Committee cannot respond satisfactorily to these urgent calls. We desire at this time not only to assist destitute settlements in procuring and compensating teachers, but to have it in our power to aid a large and interesting class of colored youth, who are thirsting for knowledge, but cannot obtain the means necessary to give a finished education.""There is now established in this city (where, above all other points in our country, such an institution was called for, having a large resident colored population, and being so convenient to pupils from the Southern States, an institution such as your Committee have long earnestly desired, and although one year has not yet elapsed since it commenced operations, it already numbers one hundred and fifty pupils, and is still rapidly increasing, so that the rooms at present fitted up are too 'strait' for them, and a new building is about to be erected. Rev'd H. S. Gilmore (the Principal) has shown great and disinterested zeal in establishing it, and using endeavors to make it all that such an institution should be. He is aided in his duties by competent male and female teachers. The number of pupils, we have reason to believe, would be very greatly increased were your Committee able, through your well bestowed bounty, to render some assistance to the indigent who are worthy of aid, and very desirous to attend, but who have not the means of paying their tuition…""Disenthralled millions will soon be demanding instructors - we have youth, talent, institutions, all, every thing save the pecuniary means, to raise up a mighty host of educated men and women to go as messengers of light and love to the benighted, now held in cruel bonds, - when their shackles fall, and they stand up men confessed in the image of God. We desire to raise, to apply here and in different parts of the State, three or four thousand dollars for this cause this year…""The Cincinnati High School, a black high school, was established in Cincinnati in 1844 by Hiram S. Gilmore (1819-1849), a wealthy young British clergyman. As principal, Rev. Gilmore offered his students courses in English, Greek, Latin, art, and music.In Hearts Beating for Liberty: Women Abolitionists in the Old Northwest (Chapel Hill, N.C.: The University of North Carolina Press, 2010), Stacey M. Robertson writes: ""By 1840, the Ohio Female Anti-Slavery Society had renamed itself the Ohio Ladies' Education Society for the Free People of Color … This group would remain active for seven more years … Assuming that all abolitionist women supported their cause ('All ladies who are members of anti-slavery societies in this State, shall be considered members of this Society'), the group asserted that 'every candid mind may see that the degradation of the colored man at the north is one of the strongest bulwarks of slavery at the south.' The organization brought together women from starkly different antislavery positions. Evangelical abolitionists Mary Blanchard and Margaret Bailey, both married to leading anti-Garrisonian Cincinnati abolitionists, worked with such radicals as Lydia Irish, an outspoken Quaker. Although eastern Garrisonians would come to view the issue of black education as secondary to and distracting from the 'real' issue of emancipation, it offered Ohio women a tangible opportunity to act on their practical, cooperative abolitionist sentiment."""

        COLLECCION DE DOCUMENTOS RELATIVOS AL DEPARTAMENTO DE CALIFORNIAS

      Mexico: Imprenta de la Vox del Pueblo, 1845. Modern three-quarter morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Bookplate on front pastedown. A bit of light foxing. Very good. A very rare and important work on California in the 1840s, by the former representative of the province in the Mexican national congress. Though modest in length, Castañares' work is a detailed and significant study of California's resources, Indians, settlements, missions, agriculture, mineral wealth, ports, presidios, and civic structure. He supports the preservation of the Pious Fund, and presciently warns that should Mexico not promote, care for, and defend California, it would fall victim to foreign occupation. "Castañares' account of the rich gold placers near Los Angeles, from which 2000 ounces of gold had been taken in 1843, is perhaps the first account in pamphlet form of mining operations in California. Bancroft devotes nearly a chapter of the fifth volume of his HISTORY OF CALIFORNIA to an account of this book, which he regarded as one of the principal sources for the period 1844-45" - Streeter. OCLC locates only ten copies. Rare on the market, this is the first copy that we have owned. COWAN, p.110. GRAFF 625. STREETER SALE 2503. SABIN 11376. HOWES C224, "aa." BARRETT 467.

        Die nordamericanischen Freistaaten. (Uebersetzung.)

      Druck und Verlag von C. Schünemann, Bremen 1845 - First edition. In blue paper. VIII, 326, (2) p. Guid book about the United States for German emigrants. Gives a detailed description of 27 American states that admitted to the Union until the date of the publication, and in addition about Iowa and Wisconsin. It also includes a forty-page description of the United States, the biography of George Washington and the translation of his Farewell Address, that is most likely the first European edition in German translation of the speech. The book starts with the description of the Thirteen Colonies that formed the United States in 1776, gives detailed information about their geography, demography, political and legislative system, history, and provides also an agricultural and economic overview. The second part is the description of the United States, its political, legislative system, its history and economy, it gives information about the United States Army, the immigration, and about the agriculture and religion of the US. This followed by the description of the other sixteen states, and the fifty-page biography of George Washington, that includes the German translation of the entire Farewell Address. We could not trace any earlier German translations of the text that was published outside the US. The author, Dudley Ambrose Mann (1801-1889) was an American diplomat and politician, the consul of the United States in Bremen in 1842, the time when its harbour served as the most important and busy emigrant harbour of Central Europe. Later Mann has held various offices in Hungary and Switzerland, in 1853 he was appointed the first ever Assistant Secretary of State, and from 1861 served as the commissioner of the Confederate States of America for Belgium and the Vatican. Sabin 44309; Howes US IANA M256. Partly untrimmed, uncut. With the stamp of the "Sozialdemokratischen Vereins, Bremen" on title page. With several newspaper clippings from 1881 and 1882 related to the text mounted onto pages, with no effect on legibility. Foxing throughout. Overall in very good condition.

Hier begann er auch seine naturwissenschaftlichen Studien zu intensivieren. "Nach der Weise seiner Zeit, welcher die Sammlung und Zusammenstellung des naturgeschichtlichen Materials das erste zu erstrebende Ziel war, beschränkte er sich bei seinen Untersuchungen hauptsächlich auf die äußere Oberfläche der Geschöpfe, entwickelte aber gerade nach dieser Seite hin eine unermüdliche und höchst anregende Thätigkeit. In der züricherischen physikalischen Gesellschaft bethätigte er sich. Er bemühte sich schon zu Anfang des Jahrhunderts eine Schweizerische naturforschende Gesellschaft zu Stande zu bringen, und als dieselbe 1815 wirklich ins Leben trat, war er eines ihrer thätigsten und ausharrendsten Mitglieder Er schuf im Laufe von 12 Jahren eine zoologische Sammlung, welche damals mit den bedeutendsten der Schweiz rivalisirte und die meisten an Reichhaltigkeit übertraf: sie wurde später an den Staat abgetreten, fand in der Hochschule (nachmals im Eidg. Polytechnikum) ihre Aufstellung, und ihre stätige Vervollständigung bildete für S., der die Conservatorstelle an derselben übernahm, bis in die letzten Lebensjahre Herzensangelegenheit" (O. Hunziker in: ADB 31, S. 303 f.). Tafeln in Bd. 8 mit Wasserrand, ansonsten ein gut erhaltenes Exemplar im originalen Zustand. Nissen ZBI 3675.

Lüderitz, um 1845, 48 x 38,5 (H) Wilhelm war konservativ eingestellt und hatte wegen seiner Rolle bei der Niederschlagung der Revolution von 1848 den Beinamen Kartätschenprinz erhalten. Dennoch bedeutete sein Antreten als amtierender König 1858 eine gewisse Liberalisierung. Noch während des Deutsch-Französischen Krieges 1870/1871 hatte er sich dem Gedanken widersetzt, zusätzlich Deutscher Kaiser zu werden, erlangte aber im Kaiserreich große Popularität. Seine Regierungszeit war wesentlich vom Wirken Otto von Bismarcks als preussischem Ministerpräsidenten und Reichskanzler geprägt.

        De la folie considérée sous le point de vue pathologique, philosophique, historique et judiciaire, etc

      1845 - 2 volumes de [1] f. de Paris, J.-B. Baillière, 1845, in-8, 2 volumes de [1] f. de fx-titre, VIII-534 pp. + VII-522-[1] pp, demi-chagrin rouge de l'époque, dos à faux nerfs, PREMIERE EDITION. Un des ouvrages les plus complets au point de vue médical sur la lycanthropie, démonologie, vampirisme, sorcellerie, etc. Dans cet ouvrage, Calmeil (1798-1895) traite notamment des grandes épidémies de délire comme la théomanie, la démonopathie, la démonolâtrie ou la zoanthropie. La théomanie atteint des populations presque entières qui croient avoir reçu des inspirations divines, ont des extases, des spasmes, des convulsions, etc. La démonolâtrie se rencontre surtout parmi les gens des campagnes qui sont soumis au démon. Les malades atteints de démonopathie étaient connus sous le nom de "possédés". Fréquente dans les couvents, elle s'accompagne de catalepsie et de violents phénomènes hystériques. Enfin, les zoanthropes se croyaient par moments transformés en bêtes. Calmeil illustre la théomanie en prenant entre autre l'exemple de Jeanne d'Arc qui selon lui "ne fit pas preuve d'une bonne logique en ajoutant foi à ses propres visions". Quelques rousseurs. Dos habilement restaurés. Waller, n°12861 a. Semelaigne I, 233. Caillet 1960. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le Marchand d'Images [The Printseller]

      Paris: Lemercier, 1845. Lithograph by Jacot after a painting by Guillemin. Printed on wove paper with thick wove backing for support. Very good condition apart from some light soiling, mild rippling and a few minor foxing marks in the margins. This charming print represents a print seller attempting to sell his wares to a middle-class couple in a domestic interior. Most likely having spotted the only print in the sparsely furnished room, a faded religious subject hung over the armoire, the vendor selects a small image of the Madonna and Child from his portfolio, which he thinks might interest his potential clients. During the nineteenth century, prints were extremely popular among members of the middle-class. They were an inexpensive and consequently affordable way for people to own reproductions of works of art. Lithographs, which were invented in the late eighteenth-century, were particularly popular. Produced through a relatively easy process, they were the ideal medium through which images could be widely disseminated. Lemercier was one of the most prominent printers and publishers of lithographs in nineteenth-century Paris.
