        Collection of 16 autograph letters, all but 3 signed, to Luiz de António Abreu e Lima (1787-1871), 1º Visconde and 1º Conde de Carreira. On paper, in Portuguese.

      @, , 1829-1846. - Written in ink, in a small, even, legible hand. 16 letters, a total of 60 pages of text on 31 leaves. The final three letters lack at least one leaf each. 4° and 8º, unbound. Foldlines. Very fine. ---- Collection of 16 letters from the Barão (later Conde) de Rendufe, a high-ranking diplomat, to the Visconde (later Conde) de Carreira, a friend and contemporary in a similar position, with frank comments on the Portuguese scene during the Lutas Liberaes and their aftermath, 1829-1846. Rendufe provides witty, energetic eyewitness accounts of military actions, debates in the Portuguese parliament, a society wedding, and much more.By 1829, when the first letter of this collection was written, Simão da Silva Ferraz de Lima e Castro (1795-1857), Barão de Rendufe, was a rising star in the Portuguese diplomatic corps due to his dramatic actions during the battles between liberals and conservatives. In 1823, as @corregedor for the Rossio neighborhood of Lisbon, Silva Ferraz supported D. Miguel in the Vilafrancada movement to overturn the Constitution of 1820. As a reward he was named intendant-general of police in Lisbon. Soon, however, his habit of mitigating the punishment of liberals earned him the enmity of D. Miguel and his mother, D. Carlota Joaquina. In the Abrilada of 1824, when D. Miguel as commander-in-chief rebelled against D. João VI, Silva Ferraz suffered a mock execution and was thrown into prison after refusing to provide information on discussions between D. João and foreign powers. Upon D. João?s return, Silva Ferraz was named to the Conselho da Fazenda and elevated to the rank of Barão de Rendufe. Resigning from the police, he began his diplomatic career with a post to the Netherlands.After D. Miguel usurped the crown in 1828, Rendufe traveled throughout Europe seeking support for D. Maria II. Two of the letters in this collection, written in London in 1829, are from this period.Rendufe eventually sailed to the Azores to join the expeditionary force that D. Pedro was gathering to reinstate D. Maria II. The army landed at Mindelo, near Porto, in 1832. Porto was besieged by D. Miguel?s forces for a year, during which time Rendufe was dispatched once again to gather support for D. Maria from other European nations. Seven letters in the collection date from this period, offering insights into the organization of the expeditionary force and a frank look at those who were in charge. After D. Miguel was sent into exile, Rendufe was elected deputy to the Cortes. Three letters from Lisbon, dated 1834-1836, describe events in the capital and elsewhere in Portugal.Rendufe continued to ascend the diplomatic ranks. From February 1842 to November 1845 he served as Minister Plenipotentiary to Berlin, and during part of this period (1844) he was also Portuguese representative to the court of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, whose duke had married D. Maria II in 1836. He negotiated treaties of commerce and navigation with Prussia in 1844 and with several other German states in 1844 and 1845. When the Maria da Fonte movement broke out in April 1846, Rendufe was sent as minister plenipotentiary to Madrid. There he negotiated a treaty whereby the Spanish and English intervened to prevent D. Maria II from being deposed. A letter written in July 1846 from Madrid discusses uprisings in Vila Viçosa, Beira Alta, Minho, and Belém.Rendufe?s last diplomatic assignment was as Portuguese minister in Paris. Having retired in 1848, he married a wealthy Belgian noblewoman the following year. In 1852 he was elevated to the rank of Conde de Rendufe.Rendufe?s correspondent was Luiz de António Abreu e Lima (1787-1871), 1º Visconde and 1º Conde de Carreira. After serving in the army Abreu e Lima entered the diplomatic corps, with stints in London, Russia, and the Netherlands. D. Miguel dismissed him in 1828, but Abreu e Lima explained to the Dutch that he represented D. Maria, not D. Miguel. The queen?s government in exile in the Azores sent him in 1830 as the queen?s mi

        A history of British fossil mammals, and birds. Large paper copy

      John van Voorst, London 1846 - Owen, Richard (1804-92). A history of British fossil mammals and birds. xlvi, 560, [2, errata]pp. Folding table. Text wood-engravings. London: John van Voorst, 1846. 256 x 165 mm. Original dark green cloth, gilt-lettered spine, minor wear. First Edition, Large Paper Copy. Owen was conservator of the Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons from 1842-56, and superintendent of British Museum's Departments of Natural History from 1856 until his retirement in 1883. An anti-Darwinist, Owen developed his own theory of evolution as species development according to divinely implanted laws; however, by the time of Darwin's death in 1889 Owen had come to acknowledge the validity of Darwin's theory of evolution of natural selection.Owen's interest in fossil mammals began in 1836 when he was asked to describe the fossil material brought back by Darwin from the Beagle voyage; his results were issued as Part I of the Zoology of the Voyage of H. M. S. Beagle (1840). Owen went on to publish several works on the subject, including the present one, which caused him to be compared favorably in the British press to Cuvier and von Humboldt. The production of a large paper version in addition to the regular edition was highly unusual for a scientific work published during this period. DSB. Rupke, Owen, p. 351.

        MOUNTED PHOTOGRAPH in THE ART - UNION, monthly journal of the fine arts and the arts, decorative, ornamental. Volume the eighth.

      London, Palmer & Clayton, January to December 1846.FIRST EDITION 1846, 4to, approximately 280 x 225 mm, 11 x 9 inches, illustrated throughout, 2 colour plates, 338 pages, bound in half calf over marbled sides, patterned gilt dividing lines, gilt raised bands, heavily gilt in compartments, gilt lettered brown morocco label, edges and endpapers marbled. Spine edges and corners very slightly rubbed, tiny binder's label on front pastedown, a couple of pages faintly unevenly browned, occasionaL light foxing to margins of plates, slight offsetting opposite colour plates, small closed tear to upper corner of page 189, repaired neatly, no loss, a very good clean sturdy copy. At page 143 in the number for June 1st is an original tissue guarded mounted photograph by Fox Talbot, known as a Talbotype or calotype, 180 x 130 mm, 7 x 5¼ inches, with a small printed label on reverse of mount: "Patent Talbotype or Sun Pictures". It shows 8 small porcelain figures and vases on 2 shelves. The photograph is in very good condition with normal fading, the mount has a little pale foxing. The photograph illustrates a 2 page article on the calotype process and Fox Talbot's part in its development. There is a further 1 page article on page 195: The Application of the Talbotype. At the end of this article the publisher's state "that the whole of the Talbotypes issued with the June number of the Art - Union were taken from the actual objects they represent; they were strictly copies from Nature; in no case had a print been made use of for the purpose of transfer. It is needless to state that prints or drawings may be easily multiplied by this process; but Mr Talbot in selecting examples for our Journal, carefully omitted all specimens of that class - confining himself entirely to SUN - PICTURES FROM NATURE". Public interest was so great that several negatives had to be used successively for an edition that ran to 7000 copies. This is the first example of a periodical illustrated by a photograph. William Henry Fox Talbot (1800 - 1877), began experimenting with capturing images on light - sensitive paper around 1834, and patented the calotype in 1840. It was the first instance of a photograph secured on paper and produced with paper negatives, which allowed for multiple copies of the same image to be made, as opposed to the daguerreotype invented by L. J. M. Daguerre in 1839. In 1845 Talbot published "The Pencil of Nature," the first book to be illustrated with photographs.

        Aborigines welcome English balloonists: "Greens Grosser Luftballon Imo Land deer Antipode"

      Vienna:: Bureau de Theaterzeitung, Rauhensteingasse no. 926,. ca. 1846.. Very good condition. Charles Green (1785-1870) was an early aeronautical pioneer, making hundreds of balloon ascents, many of them solo, some to astonishing heights, including one in which the balloon reached 27,146 feet or just over five miles. He ballooned in currents between 80 and 100 miles an hour, and on one ascent to 5,000 feet a companion jumped out of the car in a homemade parachute, unfortunately not surviving the landing. In 1836, Green ascended in the Royal Vauxhall Balloon, crossed the Channel, and landed in Nassau, Germany, floating a distance of almost 500 miles in under 18 hours. & & The caricature spoofs Green's 1846 proposed trans- Atlantic balloon voyage, depicting the welcome festivities of a group of natives of the Antipodes, including an aboriginal woman dressed in elaborate western gown and bonnet, serving tea under an elegant canopy. The engraving by Johann Zinke, after J. Cajetan, from Satyrisches Bild, no. 47. The intrepid English balloonists disembark at the left from the pink and white hot air balloon, as a group of natives gape over the story illustrated in a London broadside "The Gallery of London, Three Pens" , as tea is being served at the right.

        Topographical map of the road from Missouri to Oregon, commencing at the mouth of the Kansas in the Missouri River and ending at the mouth of the Wallah Wallah in the Columbia, in VII sections : from the field notes and journal of Capt. J.C. Fremont, and from sketches and notes made on the ground by his assistant Charles Preuss ; compiled by Charles Preuss, 1846, by order of the Senate of the United States.

      E. Weber & Co. Lithographer,, Baltimore: 1846 - First issue of the first map "to show the Oregon Trail accurately with great detail" (Rumsey); "An extraordinary map by a master cartographer" (Graff). "Used by many of the overland trail parties, and published only three years before the gold rush, it was based on the 1,670 mile journey of 1842-3 lead by John Charles Fremont, from the Missouri to the Columbia Rivers, by the cartographer Charles Preuss. "This valuable overland guide map must not be confused with those found in Fremont’s reports. Preuss was topographer on the "Pathfinder’s" first Fremont expedition and herein records the daily stopping places with notes on the country, water, wood, game, Indians, and other subjects of interest or reasons for caution along the way. Each of the seven map-sections has its own separate title together with observations and extracts from Fremont’s Report relevant to the portion of the route depicted." One of the observations pertains to the Great Salt Lake: "one of the wonders of nature, and perhaps without a rival in the world". There was a second issue of this map, contained in the 1849 Rockwell report. This is the original 1846 separate issue, with the lithographer's imprint (E. Weber & Co., Baltimore) present, sheets III and VI properly numbered, etc. The maps follow the following route - Section I: Kansas; Section II, Nebraska; Section VI (i.e. Section III) Nebraska & Wyoming; Section IV Wyoming & Idaho; Section V Wyoming & Idaho; Section III (i.e. Section VI): Idaho; Section VII: Idaho, Oregon & Washington. Seven uncolored lithographed sheets bound together at the right margin. The sheets are bright and clean, in remarkably good condition with two old folds, one horizontal & one vertical. With a light water mark at the bottom right hinge, only lightly affecting a couple of images. At some stage, a diagonal slit traversing the verso of the first three sheets has been expertly repaired with Japanese tissue paper, so well done that it is barely detectable on the front. The fourth sheet has an "L" shaped repair from the left margin to the center fold. A couple of small hole repairs to verso of last sheet; some intermittent light water stains at the horizontal fold. All faults mentioned do not detract from this highly desirable, very nice copy. 26 3/8 x 16 ", bound on the right margin with green paper, as issued.

        MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT RECORDING THE HIDES AND TALLOW RECEIVED BY CALIFORNIA PIONEER AND PROMINENT MERCHANT, WILLIAM HEATH DAVIS, AND RECORDING THE BRANDS ON THE HIDES].

      Yerba Buena [i.e. San Francisco]. September 21, 1846. - Manuscript text and brand marks on a sheet of paper, 7 x 8 1/2 inches. Old folds. Near fine. A very early example of California cattle brands, the earliest Trans-Mississippi brand record that we have ever encountered. The document is headlined, "Inspected the following hides & tallow for Mr. William Heath Davis with the vent marks." William Heath Davis (1822-1909) was born in Hawaii and settled in California, working first for his merchant uncle and then developing businesses for himself. He became a wealthy merchant, ship owner, and rancher, and was also an early settler of San Diego. The present document records the inspection of 51 hides and five bags of tallow belonging to Davis. In his memoirs, Davis describes the process by which merchants received animal hides and tallow (the tallow being used for candles and soap) from ranchers in exchange for payment for goods. He also describes how merchants would race to collect their debt first, before the other creditors came to the ranchers seeking payment. It is likely that the present document was produced at an instance when Davis received a large payment of hides and tallow, which needed to be inspected for quality, quantity, and provenance. Significantly, the document reproduces the seven vent marks used on the hides. A vent mark was used by cattlemen to visibly quit their claim to branded cattle, usually by altering the existing brand, which by its nature could not be erased. Also inspected were five bags of tallow, and the four marks used on those bags are also recorded. The document is dated September 21, 1846, and is signed by E. Ward Pell, "Inspector General." An early example of California cattle brands, and an interesting document illustrating the business operations of the important merchant, William Heath Davis. William Heath Davis, SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS IN CALIFORNIA (San Francisco. 1929), pp. 246-247 and passim.

        Route Across the Rocky Mountains, with a description of Oregon and California: their geographical features, their resources, soil, climate, productions

      John B. Semans, printer, Lafayette, In 1846 - Original half cloth and plain paper boards (covers rubbed, spine label damaged), cloth chemise, half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt A very rare key overland guide, in very good original condition. One of the earliest and rarest of overland guide books to the Oregon Trail, chronologically the second such guide, preceded only by the Hastings guide of 1845. The authors went overland to Oregon in 1843. Winter went to California the following year, then returned to Indiana, where he arranged to publish this guidebook in time for the 1846 emigrant season. The guide provides a detailed account of the 1843 trip, a long description of Oregon, Winter's route to California, the Bear Flag movement, gold at Santa Barbara, and of northern California. The return route from California is also described, and there is a table of distances in the rear. Winter eventually settled in the Napa-Sonoma area. This is the issue with corrected text on pages 26 and 36. A rarity, afforded a "d" by Howes, who calls it "one of the greatest of early overland narratives." A key guide and important work of Western Americana. Cowan I, p.315; Graff 2221; Howes J142, "d."; Sabin 36260; Streeter Sale 3145; Wagner-Camp 122. 152pp. (Scattered spotting).

        MOUNTED PHOTOGRAPH in THE ART-UNION, monthly journal of the fine arts and the arts, decorative, ornamental. Volume the eighth

      London, Palmer & Clayton, January to December 1846.. FIRST EDITION 1846, 4to, approximately 280 x 225 mm, 11 x 9 inches, illustrated throughout, 2 colour plates, 338 pages, bound in half calf over marbled sides, patterned gilt dividing lines, gilt raised bands, heavily gilt in compartments, gilt lettered brown morocco label, edges and endpapers marbled. Spine edges and corners very slightly rubbed, tiny binder's label on front pastedown, a couple of pages faintly unevenly browned, occasionaL light foxing to margins of plates, slight offsetting opposite colour plates, small closed tear to upper corner of page 189, repaired neatly, no loss, a very good clean sturdy copy. At page 143 in the number for June 1st is an original tissue guarded mounted photograph by Fox Talbot, known as a Talbotype or calotype, 180 x 130 mm, 7 x 5¼ inches, with a small printed label on reverse of mount: "Patent Talbotype or Sun Pictures". It shows 8 small porcelain figures and vases on 2 shelves. The photograph is in very good condition with normal fading, the mount has a little pale foxing. The photograph illustrates a 2 page article on the calotype process and Fox Talbot's part in its development. There is a further 1 page article on page 195: The Application of the Talbotype. At the end of this article the publisher's state "that the whole of the Talbotypes issued with the June number of the Art-Union were taken from the actual objects they represent; they were strictly copies from Nature; in no case had a print been made use of for the purpose of transfer. It is needless to state that prints or drawings may be easily multiplied by this process; but Mr Talbot in selecting examples for our Journal, carefully omitted all specimens of that class - confining himself entirely to SUN-PICTURES FROM NATURE". Public interest was so great that several negatives had to be used successively for an edition that ran to 7000 copies. This is the first example of a periodical illustrated by a photograph. William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877), began experimenting with capturing images on light-sensitive paper around 1834, and patented the calotype in 1840. It was the first instance of a photograph secured on paper and produced with paper negatives, which allowed for multiple copies of the same image to be made, as opposed to the daguerreotype invented by L. J. M. Daguerre in 1839. In 1845 Talbot published "The Pencil of Nature," the first book to be illustrated with photographs.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GEORGE WASHINGTON GUNTER TO E.A. WEBSTER REGARDING ALABAMA LANDS, POSTMARKED AT FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS, IN 1846. WITH A POSTSCRIPT MENTIONING JOHN ROSS' NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT LED TO THE CHEROKEE TREATY OF 1846]

      Gunter's Prairie, Cherokee Nation. Aug. 11, 1846.. [1]p. autograph letter, signed, with a four- line postscript at the top of the second page. About 300 words. Addressed in manuscript on the integral blank leaf, and postmarked Fort Smith, Arkansas, Aug. 16, [1846]. On a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines; remnants of wax seal and corresponding paper tear in a blank edge. Very good. A very interesting manuscript letter from George Washington Gunter, a member of the Cherokee Nation, regarding the sale of lands owned by his family in Alabama, and noteworthy for having been postmarked at Fort Smith, Arkansas in August, 1846 - a very early Arkansas postmark. George Washington Gunter was descended from John Gunter, a Scotsman who emigrated to America, married an Indian woman, and was admitted to the Cherokee Nation. George Washington Gunter writes E.A. Webster in Huntsville, Alabama, from his current home in "Gunter's Prairie, Cherokee Nation." He authorizes Webster to act as his agent in the sale of lands belonging to John Gunter, presumably in Alabama. It seems almost certain that these lands were abandoned by the Gunter family in 1838 when they were forced onto the "Trail of Tears" and relocated. Gunter instructs Webster to sell the land for not less than $500 and to look into whether Gunter has legal right to any other lands in the area. The Gunter family were close associates of Cherokee leader John Ross, and the postscript of this letter refers to Ross' negotiations with the federal government that culminated in the Cherokee Treaty of 1846: "I have not any to write about our country. We are getting along pretty well and I hope from all that I can learn that Mr. Ross will be able to make a settlement with the government."

      [Augusta, Me. 1846]. - [2]pp., on bifolium sheet of blue paper. Printed on rectos of each leaf only. Early soft creases from folding. Tiny separations at cross-folds. Small bit of discoloration on second page. Very good. Message from governor of Maine H.J. Anderson and general order from Alfred Redington, Commander in Chief of the Maine militia, calling volunteers to arms in the Mexican- American War. Anderson explains that "the repeated and long continued efforts of the National Government to effect an amicable settlement of the differences with the government of Mexico, have unfortunately proved unavailing," resulting in the American declaration of war. Anderson notes that the President has requested one regiment of infantry from Maine, and writes that he has no doubt "that the patriotic citizens of this State will promptly respond to the call of the general government for aid in defending any portion of its territory." Redington's general order lists the positions in the infantry volunteer corps being assembled and transmits instructions for volunteers. "Maine, although distant from the scene of the conflict, will be as prompt as any of her sister States in repelling the forces of the invader. Her patriotic citizens will be as ready to vindicate rights upon the Rio Grande, as upon their own immediate territory. Their love of country knows no section, but embraces the entire boundaries of the Republic" - Redington.

        Topographical Map of the Road from Missouri to Oregon, Commencing at the Mouth of the Kansas in the Missouri River and Ending at the Mouth of the Wallah Wallah in the Columbia, In VII Sections. From the field notes and journal of Capt. J.C. Frémont, and from sketches and notes made on the ground by his assistant Charles Preuss

      E. Weber, Baltimore 1846 - Charles Preuss (1804-1854) Topographical Map of the Road from Missouri to Oregon, Commencing at the Mouth of the Kansas in the Missouri River and Ending at the Mouth of the Wallah Wallah in the Columbia, In VII Sections. From the field notes and journal of Capt. J.C. Frémont, and from sketches and notes made on the ground by his assistant Charles Preuss E. Weber, Baltimore,1846 Lithographed map on 7 sheets 20 1/2” x 30 1/2” framed (each) The U.S. Senate ordered ten thousand copies of this topographical road map of the Oregon Trail, which followed the Kansas and Platte rivers across the Great Plains. A German cartographer, Preuss had compiled John C. Fremont’s earlier maps based on his surveys and the explorer’s journal and field notes. The map was lithographed by E. Weber and Company, a Baltimore firm that later, under the name of August Hoen and Company, became one of the principal publishers of government reports and maps. Weber had studied lithography in Munich under the watchful eye of Aloys Senefelder, who had developed the process. Preuss’s map was issued in seven sections so that it could easily be read by wagonmasters under the most adverse conditions. Each section was drawn at a scale of one inch to 10 miles and covered approximately 250 miles. A table of meteorologic observations and notes extracted from Fremont’s report provided information about the region. The section on display shows that portion of the Oregon Trail from its junction with the Platte River at Grand Island to beyond the confluence of the north and south forks. A note, marking the point of Fremont’s “First view of Buffalo,” captures the nineteenth-century romanticism of the plains: “We had heard from a distance a dull and confused murmuring and when we came in view of their dark masses, there was not one among us who did not feel his heart beat quicker. Indians and buffalo make the poetry and life of the prairie and our camp was full of their exhiliration.” Like later road maps, Preuss’s map contains helpful travelers’ aids. Distances in miles from Westport Landing (Kansas City are marked along the trail. The map also provides comments on the availability of wild game for food, fuel, “Some drift wood and buffalo excrements makes the fuel, as that of the camels does in the deserts of Arabia”, and safety, “Good guard ought to be kept. Pawnees, if they do not kill, will at least take what they can from the travellers by force if they are strong, and by stealth if too weak to act openly.’’ This map was a road guide for Oregon emigrants such as had never previously existed. Owing to its rarity and to its having long stood in the shadow of the much more widely known and distributed Frémont map of 1845, Preuss’s sectional map of 1846 has been insufficiently appreciated by students of Western history. There were two issues of the map, the original 1846 issue, and that contained in the 1849 Rockwell report. This is the original 1846 separate issue, with the lithographer’s imprint.

        Lettres ˆ Son Altesse Royale le Duc regnant de Saxe-Coburg et Gotha sur la thŽorie des probabilitŽs, appliquŽe aux science morales et politiques.

      Brussels: M. Haney, 1846. - Quetelet (1796-1874) was a Belgian astronomer, mathematician, statistician and sociologist. He founded and directed the Brussels Observatory. He became interested in the úyoung science of probability and statistics as an astronomer to explain measurement errors, but became one of the first to see its applications to the social sciences. He understood the complexities of social phenomena and became interested in using what he called "social physics" as a tool to explain crime rates, marital rates, suicide rates, etc. In 1835, he published Sur l'homme et le dŽveloppement des ses faculties, essai d'une physique sociale, which made him famous throughout Europe. These letters to the Grand Duke of Saxe Coburg and Gotha are an important sequel to that work. Cajori calls them "Quetelet's best researches on the application of probability to the physical and social sciences" and notes: "He laid emphasis on the Ôlaw of large numbers,Õ which was advanced also by the Frenchman S.D. Poisson and discussed by the German W. Lexis (1877), the Scandinavians H. Westergaard and Carl Charlier, and the Russian Pafnuti Liwowich Chebichev (1821-1894) of the University of Petrograd."Quetelet's work was enormously influential to Francis Galton, who expanded upon it in Hereditary Genius. Large octavo. [6], iv, 450 pp. Original printed wrappers. Affixed to the bottom portion of the front wrappers is a printed slip for the Paris publisher, Jules Renouard, who apparently acquired part of the edition.
