"Joseph Story's work on promissory notes was the last of his great treatises. (...) Unlike many of his predecessors, Story treated each aspect of commercial law separately in a series of works which included his treatises on agency (1839), partnership (1841), bills of exchange (1843) and finally the one on promissory notes. The inclusion of comparative sources from the commercial law of other countries reflects Story's view, expressed in his opinion for the Supreme Court in Swift v. Tyson (1842) that commercial law was international, not the 'law of a single country only, but of the commercial world.": Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 2561.

        Autograph letter signed ("G. Verdi") dated Roma, 24 Ott. 1844 [October 24, 1844], most likely to his French publisher Marie Pierre Yves Escudier regarding the composer's opera I Lombardi.

      2 pp. Octavo. With decorative embossed blindstamp ("BATH") to upper inner left corner. An important letter regarding I Lombardi, including commentary regarding orchestration for the character of Pagano, the necessity for a large orchestra and choir, staging, the composer's plans to write operas for Naples and Venice, future performances of his works, etc. Verdi states that he has written to his publisher Ricordi about the part for Pagano "arranged for baritone with the orchestra properly adjusted." He describes the opera as his "most difficult" and states that, "in addition to the three principal artists, it also needs a ensemble of orchestra and choruses" in order that the work be properly staged. The composer goes on to say that he will write for Naples and Venice next year, and that he "will be free in two years from now, that is to say from October 1845 to March 1847" if Mr. Vatel would like to discuss the possibility of making a "deal," but Verdi would like one of his operas to be performed before then. He then states that a "Mr. Torre of Genoa" has given him a Romanza that he will set to music as soon as he has "a spare moment." In closing, Verdi thanks Escudier for his "kind words and for the care [he] takes of giving notoriety" to the composer's "poor name." Browned, especially at upper edge; small old tapemark; creased at folds and somewhat overall; small pinholes. Archivally repaired and restored. Apparently unpublished and unrecorded. I Lombardi alla prima crociata [The Lombards on the First Crusade], a dramma lirico in 4 acts to a libretto by Temistocle Solera after Tommaso Grossi's poem of the same name, was first performed in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on February 11, 1843; the part of Pagano was sung by the bass Prospero Dérivis. The vocal score was published by Ricordi in Milan in 1843. The opera was revised as Jérusalem to a libretto by Alphonse Royer and Gustave Vaëz and first performed in the revised version in Paris at the Opéra on November 26, 1847. "I Lombardi has often been compared to Nabucco, the immensely successful opera that preceded it in the Verdi canon. It is easy to see how such comparisons usually find the later opera less satisfactory. I Lombardi has a wider-ranging action than Nabucco, but Verdi, at this stage of his career, was less able or willing to depict various sharply contrasting locales, and many of the opera's choral sections (which traditionally carried the weight of such depictions) are pallid and routine. The great exception is the chorus 'O Signore, dal tetto natio', which rightly stands beside 'Va pensiero' as representative of Verdi's new voice in Italian opera. The opera's musical characterization is strangely uneven: the presence of two leading tenors seems to divide attention where it might usefully have been focussed, but the leading soprano, Giselda, stamps her personality on the drama at a very early stage and succeeds in emerging with impressive effect." "Although Jérusalem was soon converted into the Italian Gerusalemme, and published in Italy, Verdi's revision failed to oust I Lombardi from the Italian stage and gradually disappeared from the repertory. This is in some ways regrettable, as the opera simplifies somewhat the complex action of the Italian original, adds convincing new music (in particular the fine crowd scene of Act 3 scene ii), cuts some of the weaker portions and, by converting Arvino from a tenor to a baritone, solves one of the problems of vocal distribution that occurred in I Lombardi. Whatever its ultimate merits, Jérusalem serves as a fascinating first document in charting Verdi's relationship with the French stage, a relationship that was to become increasingly important during the next decade." Roger Parker in Grove Music Online. The French brothers Marie (1809-1880) and Léon (1815-1881) Escudier were Verdi's publisher's in France; they also translated the libretti of two of Verdi's works into French: Le proscrit, or Le corsaire de Venise in 1845 (from Ernani), and Les deux Foscari in 1846. Marie Escudier first met Verdi in Milan in 1845, the same year Verdi ceded rights for publication of his works in France to the Escudiers (October), and Marie's first letter to Verdi has been commonly said to predate June 30, 1845. Providing that our assumption that the present letter is, indeed, to Marie Escudier, we now know that Verdi's first letter to Marie dates back to October of 1844. Marie Escudier was Verdi's correspondent through 1847; his brother Léon took over in either the summer or autumn of that year, informing Verdi about events in France and acting as intermediary between Verdi and impresarios, theater directors, singers, and librettists in France. Their relationship terminated in 1877 due to disagreements regarding the staging of the first performance of Aida in Paris, at the Théâtre Italien. The two operas that Verdi refers to in the present letter as writing for Naples and Venice were Alzira (first performed in Naples at the Teatro di San Carlo on August 12, 1845) and Attila (first performed in Venice at the Teatro La Fenice on March 17, 1846). The "Sigr. Vatel" referred to in the letter is August-Eugene Vatel, director of the Théâtre Italian in Paris at the time. Verdi went to Paris and attended the Opéra for the first time on June 1, 1847; Jérusalem premiered there on November 26th; "Sigr. Torre" can be identified as Giuseppe Torre, a poet and author of the text of many romanzas. I Lombardi was the first of Verdi's operas to be staged in the United States; it premiered at Palmo's Opera House in New York City on March 3, 1847. Palmo's, located on Chambers Street between Broadway and Centre Street, was one of the earliest opera houses in New York City. We would like to thank Dr. Daniela Macchione for her kind assistance in our preparation of this description.

Divided into three sections, this ledger records the sale of his lands by Gideon's heirs. It has a detailed accounting of the "List of Lands belonging to the Heirs of Gideon Granger, remaining unsold in Hardin, Hart & Larue Co's. Kentucky" totaling some 35,078 acres.

Each squatter is listed by name and respective parcel with various notations such as "Old Road on the east Line - boundary disputed," "On the Nashville Turnpike," "Superior Land," "On the Litchfield Road," etc. A number of squatters purchased land, transactions likely prompted by Granger's site visits.

        An original design for a porcelain plate

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some light soiling. 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."

        JONATHAN SHARP; OR, THE ADVENTURES OF A KENTUCKIAN. Written by Himself.

      London. 1845. - Three volumes. x,336;[2],320;[2],334,[2]pp. Original boards, printed paper labels. Some minor chipping to spine ends, hinges cracked but solid, backstrip detached from front hinge of volume one. Bookplates on front pastedowns. An occasional fox mark, but overall fresh and clean internally. A very good set in original condition. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell case. A remarkable work of frontier fiction. Much of the story relates to Texas during the early 1840s, especially the events leading up to annexation. Half of the first volume and all of the third volume are set in Texas, which the narrator describes as populated by swindlers, cowards and rascals. There are good descriptions of the various factions involved in a period of great turbulence, including the Mexicans, Indians, and the colorful characters both major and minor who dwelled in Texas during the period of independence. At the end the author accurately predicts the impending war with Mexico and urges the British to intervene: "I think it opportune for the legislators of wealthy England to exercise the whole of their influence to prevent the annexation of Texas to the United States." The story begins in the narrator's native Kentucky, but the scene soon shifts to New Orleans and Cuba, and then to Wisconsin, where Sharp is involved in a successful mining venture and makes his fortune. A considerable subplot revolves around his encounters with the early Mormons. In the second volume he has a long interview with Joseph Smith, or "Joe Smith," as he calls him, and subsequent adventures take him back to Nauvoo around the time of the anti-Mormon uprisings there. The story includes vivid details of Mormon character types just prior to the abandonment of Nauvoo in 1846, and westward migration in 1847. The identity of the author of this novel has never been determined. There is some similarity to the fiction and travel writing of Capt. Marryat, but it seems likely nonetheless that the author was in fact American. His account of life on the American frontier provides a vivid and highly critical picture of rampant speculation, lawlessness, immorality, and general chaos. There are interesting and quite sympathetic comments as well on the plight of both Indians and Blacks. The dialogue, characters, and local color all suggest a considerable first-hand acquaintance with the world described. At the same time, this is a novel with a message: the portrayal of the United States as a land of immense promise, debased by dishonesty and greed. As the author explains in the preface, his jaundiced view of a beloved Far West corrupted by "the deadly bowie-knife, and the cowardly 'Colt's six-barrel- self-revolving pistol'" led him to publish in London. The novel was, in fact, never printed in America. "The story is of real Texas interest because of the unrestrained bitterness of its portrayal of Texas customs, morals, and people.From some comments it appears to have been written by a disgruntled Englishman, quite likely one who held Mexican bonds secured by Texas lands. From time to time there are attacks on the proposed annexation of Texas by the United States and the final sentence of the third volume is a plea that England's influence be used to prevent annexation" - Streeter. Very rare on the market, this copy is only the third that we have encountered. Not listed in Woolf, Block or Sabin. COLEMAN, BIBLIOGRAPHY OF KENTUCKY HISTORY 2170. STREETER TEXAS 1609.

Title translates into English as "The Current [Reform] Movement in Judaism: Its Legitimacy and Meaning. ” Important period work on the Reform Movement by one of its key leaders. Sigismund Stern (1812–1867) was a “German teacher and leader of the Berlin Reform movement. After studying philology in Berlin, in 1835 Stern succeeded I. M. Jost as headmaster of the Berlin Jewish boys' school. In 1845 he gave a series of lectures on the tasks of Judaism which aroused wide interest and controversy. He wished to bring about a revival of religious life, waking it from its then current lethargy, which he felt was caused by the contradictions and frustrations faced by Jews in the modern world. Following his proposal calling for the erection of a ‘German-Jewish church, leading classes of Berlin Jewry responded by forming an ‘Association for Reform in Judaism, ' in which Stern played a central role. Contending that Judaism must free itself from its national heritage, he initiated radical reforms and the separate organization of the reformers in Berlin. In 1848, after standing unsuccessfully as candidate for that year's National Assembly, Stern accepted the directorship of the Frankfurt on the Main Philanthropin Jewish school. He enlarged the institution, raised its academic standards, and introduced pedagogic (but not religious) innovations, which made him an acknowledged leader of the German methods” (EJ, 2007) .

Staatsrats, 1842 erster Kanzler der Friedensklasse des Ordens Pour le mérite. Im Alter von fast neunzig Jahren starb er -- unverheiratet geblieben -- hochgeehrt in Berlin.

'In 1845 Wordsworth oversaw the publication of a handsome single-volume edition of his collected works. The text was, as usual, subjected throughout to revision, but the most significant was that to The Excursion, in which the language of Christian doctrine was more explicitly introduced' (ODNB). The date of birth of Mary Littledale Greenwood is not known, but she died in 1913: she was presumably then youngish when this book was inscribed for her by the 76-year-old poet. She was the daughter of Frederick Greenwood of Swarcliffe Hall, and the brother of John Greenwood. In 1839, Charlotte Brontë, was employed as governess by the Sidgewick family of nearby Stonnegappe: Mrs. Sidgewick was the daughter of John Greenwood whom the family visited during that summer. It is understood that Charlotte visited the property during this time and incorporated elements of the house in her portrayal of Thornfield Hall in Jane Eyre, including the legend about a mad woman confined to the attic which dates from the eighteenth century.
