        Map of the City of New York

      Homans & Ellis, 1846. Map. Engraving. Image measures 12.5" x 10.5". This finely drawn map of Manhattan depicts "New York as it was in 1846," and covers up to 21st St. on the west side and 34th St. on the east side. It also includes small sections of Brooklyn Heights and Williamsburg. The map is meticulously rendered with street names and piers numbered and labeled. Evidence of early Dutch settlement is still apparent in many of the names. Parks, ferry lines, selected public buildings, and other points of interest such as Castle Garden are also indicated. A key in the lower right labels public buildings in Brooklyn and lists the current population at 59,500. This map was published in Edward Ruggles's "Picture of New York" in 1846, designed, as per its title page, as a "guide to citizens and strangers." The map is in good condition with no tears or hole. Original folds as issued. Overall staining. Right margin is cut from where the map was tipped into the accompanying volume. David H. Burr (1803-1875) served as Topographer to the United States Post Office and Geographer to the House of Representatives and was widely known for his accuracy and attention to detail. Burr was one of the first cartographers to map each of the United States individually. This detailed map is a fine document of New York City's growth in the mid-19th century.

        The Poetical Works of William Wordsworth

      Edward Moxon, London 1846 - Beautiful set of Wordsworth's poems, warmly inscribed in Volume I. The collection is organized thematically, and includes "Tintern Abbey," "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud," "The World Is Too Much With Us," and "Ode: Intimations of Immortality": "What though the radiance which was once so bright / Be now forever taken from my sight, / Though nothing can bring back the hour / Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower; / We will grieve not, rather find / Strength in what remains behind." Wordsworth has inscribed the first volume: "To Louisa Susan Ricarda Fenwick from her affectionate Friend William Wordsworth, Bath, March 23rd 1847." Louisa's aunt, Isabella Fenwick, was one of Wordsworth's most cherished friends: she is best remembered today for her efforts, in 1843, to record Wordsworth's observations on his most famous poems. The 180-page manuscript known as the Fenwick Notes, now housed in the Wordsworth Library at Grasmere, remains a crucial source for scholars of English Romanticism. Isabella's niece Louisa Fenwick was a close member of Wordsworth's circle as well; Wordsworth stayed in Bath with Isabella and Louisa for six weeks in the spring of 1847, when he inscribed this set to his young hostess. A near-fine set with a compelling literary association, handsomely bound by Hayday. Seven octavo volumes, full polished calf gilt, raised bands, red and green spine labels, marbled edges and endpapers. Portrait frontispiece to Volume I; Volumes I, II and V expertly rebacked with the original spines laid down. Lightest rubbing and toning to bindings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Narrative of a Mission to Bokhara, in the Years 1843-1845, to ascertain the Fate of Colonel Stoddart and Captain Conolly [...]

      London: Published for the Author by John W. Parker, 1846. Fourth edition. 8vo. pp. xxvii, [i], 515, [i] + portrait frontis. Modern quarter calf over marbled boards. Effusive full-page inscription on half title to John Browne (of Chiseldon House, Wiltshire), with blessings in English, Arabic and Hebrew, possibly written on separate occasions as the first is addressed to John Browne Esq and the second (in a slightly freer hand, after dinner?) is addressed to ‘my [or Mrs?] John Browne’ and dated 1 May 1847; it’s entirely possible that Wolff gallantly offered to add a further inscription to Brown’s wife. Stoddart, a soldier rather than a diplomat, was sent to Bokhara in 1838 - chiefly to curtail any Russian influence. His imprisonment seems to have arisen from a series of gaffes and the Emir’s natural suspicion of foreign ‘spies’. Conolly, who was well versed in the ways of central Asian diplomacy (and is credited with coining the phrase ‘the great game’) attempted to negotiate his release but instead shared Stoddart’s fate. They were executed when British prestige plumbed new depths in the aftermath of the First Afghan War. News reached Britain by way of one of Conolly’s Persian servants, but Wolff volunteered to journey to Bokhara himself to confirm thir fate. Peter Hopkirk (‘The Great Game’) describes him as “a brave but highly eccentric clergyman” and recounts how he “was lucky to escape with his own life, only doing so, it is said, because his bizarre appearance in full canonicals, made the unpredictable Emir ‘shake with uncontrollable laughter’”.

Fr. 22, June 1846, pp. 907-918. 4to. ---- <br><br> Sparrow, Milestones of Science 132. - In 1845 the astronomer and physicist Francois Arago encouraged Le Verrier to examine observed anomalies in the movements of the known planet Uranus. Le Verrier began by establishing a precise theory of Uranus which he demonstrated in his memoir "Recherches sur les Mouvements d&#39;Uranus" published in Volume 22, number 22. He showed that the discrepancies in the orbit of Uranus could not be explained by the gravitational effects of the Sun, Jupiter or Saturn, but were in fact caused by the presence of an as yet unknown planet within its orbit..

        LETTER FROM THE HON. JOHN Q. ADAMS, TO THE BANGOR COMMITTEE, ON THE ABOLITION OF SLAVERY IN THE WEST INDIES.

      [Chicago. ca. 1846]. - pp.[89]-96. Disbound. Light soiling and wear. Good. A scarce printed letter from John Quincy Adams to the anti-slavery committee in Bangor, dated July 4, 1843, followed by a report from the Monroe, New York, DEMOCRAT about Adams' recent journey through the state. In his letter to the Bangor committee, Adams declines an invitation to speak, citing poor health, but contributes a "strong blast at the institution of slavery" (Byrd). "The extinction of SLAVERY from the face of the earth," Adams writes, "is a problem, moral, political, religious, which at this moment rocks the foundations of human society throughout the regions of civilized man. It is, indeed, nothing more nor less than the consummation of the Christian religion" (p.[89]). The letter first appeared in a regular issue of THE LIBERTY TREE (probably the December 1843 issue, according to Byrd) and was most likely printed separately (but retaining original pagination) along with other important documents from the first volume of that publication approximately three years later. THE LIBERTY TREE was a monthly anti-slavery periodical edited and published in Chicago by Zebina Eastman from 1843 to circa 1846. OCLC lists five copies - at the University of Chicago, the Libraries of the Claremont Colleges, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, Brown University, and Princeton. BYRD 1009.

        Fine LS , 'Juan M. de Rosas' with a fine flourish, (in Spanish with translation), to Admiral Borrles, (Juan Manuel de, 1793-1877, Argentinian dictator 1835-1852)

      1846 - "thanking your Excellency most warmly for the fine and noble sense of duty you have shown towards me, by your Excellency's offering to Señor Dickson to arrange that a Telescope destined for me be received on board the Apollo, should it reach Falmouth in time . I take this pleasant and interesting occasion to send your Excellency my cordial and deep appreciation, and to ask you to believe me your Excellency's most devoted servant", 1 side folio and conjugate blank, Buenos Aires, 2nd July Rosas learnt first to read and write after he was married and already a successful cattle breeder. Having made an efficient fighting force of his Vaqueros against the Indians, his help was sought by contending political parties. He might have ruled his country till his death had not several of his generals and even his family defected, when they began to live in fear of his suspicions and violence, for which he has been compared with Rome's Caligula. Although Rosas finally sought exile in England, his relations with England were strained by his blockading the access to the Paranà, and long siege of Montevideo at this time, both affecting the extensive British and French trade there.

        Mexico & Guatemala:

      Philadelphia.: S. Augustus Mitchell.. Copyright 1846.. Handcolored map, lithograph, 12 x 15 inches including decorative border on sheet 13 3/4 x 17 1/4 inches. Toning and light soiling to margins, archivally repaired tear entering the decorative border at centre of upper edge, pinholes in three corners, occasional light soiling in image. Good condition. A fascinating map of the "American West" before it was: the map, published at the start of the Mexican-American War, shows Mexico extending south of the Oregon Territory and east to the Rocky Mountains and Rio Grande, including the huge Mexican state "Upper or New California." It is from the 1846 edition of Mitchell&#39;s New Universal Atlas (with a plate number of 36 outside the neat line). The copyright line at lower centre reads: "Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1846 by H.N. Burroughs, in the Clerk&#39;s Office of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania." There is an inset map "Valley of Mexico" at lower left and of Guatemala at upper right. A fascinating snapshot of the Western United States just prior to the California Gold Rush and the annexation of California. .

        GALLERY OF CUTTINGS AND NEEDLE-WORK, EXECUTED WITHOUT HANDS, FOR ONE WEEK ONLY

      [Poughkeepsie, N.Y.]: American Press - 258 Main St., [ca. 1846].. Broadside, 10 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches. Ornamental border. Several ink stains, one of them causing small closed splits in the paper. Wrinkling and folds. Good. A marvelous and rare broadside, touting the talents of the amazing Martha Ann Honeywell, only three feet tall and born without arms. Miss Honeywell (ca. 1787-1848) was the most prominent and talented of a small group of armless artists who could create amazing needleworks and cuttings, including complicated embroidery and silhouettes. She toured around the country and to Europe, fascinating audiences with her talent and agility. From the text: "This interesting and talented Lady, born without arms, has acquired such extraordinary skill in the use of a common pair of Scissors, that by holding them in her mouth she is enabled to cut out of Paper the most curious and difficult designs ever attempted, or perhaps executed in the known world, such as Scripture Pieces, Likenesses of Distinguished Americans, together with a great variety of Watch Papers, Landscapes, and even the Lord&#39;s Prayer, perfectly legible. Not the outlines merely, but resembling engraving. She also writes the Lord&#39;s Prayer in a space that can be covered with a Five cent piece." The broadside mentions that "all her elegant work is for sale," and that the admission of twenty-five cents includes a complimentary profile. OCLC locates different broadsides advertising Ms. Honeywell&#39;s talents at the Library Company of Philadelphia and the New- York Historical Society, but the present piece appears to be unique.

        THE BATTLE OF LIFE

      1846. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1846. 2 pp undated ads. Original red cloth pictorially decorated in gilt, all edges gilt. First Edition of Dickens&#39;s fourth Christmas book. This is an unusual tale in which two sisters love the same man, both ultimately settling in with him (though only one is married to him) -- according to Thackeray "a wretched affair." It is in fact quite autobiographical: Dickens loved Mary Hogarth, married her sister Catherine, and then was happy to have his household run by their sister Georgina.~This copy has the vignette title page in the second state, with "A Love Story" on a banner -- without an angel -- above the publisher&#39;s imprint (Todd&#39;s C2, with the "D" in "BRADBURY" slightly broken). The vast majority of copies (easily 90% we would say) is in the fourth state (with an angel holding the banner, and no publisher&#39;s imprint), and copies in the first and third state are virtually impossible to find.~This copy&#39;s condition is very good (minor wear at the spine ends, one small mark on the rear cover); atypically, the fragile original endpapers are not cracked. Smith II pp 60-65; Podeschi (Gimbel) A116.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Mannheim, 4. III. 1846. - 2½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). An den Sänger Ludwig Cramolini (1805-1884): "Hätte ich nur einige Wochen früher erfahren, daß Du nicht mehr in Darmstadt Lust zu bleiben hast, so hätte ich mich mit der nemlichen Frage an Dich gewendet, die Du jetzt an mich stellst. Mittlerweilen sind aber zwei Tenoristen auf Gastrollen und Engagement eingeladen worden [.] Wir haben ein eigenes Unglück mit unserem Tenoristen. Ist einmal einer da, der gefällt, so lauft er entweder fort oder er verliert seine Stimme [.] Bei erprobt guten Tenoristen kommen wir entweder zu früh oder zu spät und so leidet die hies. Oper schon seit Jahren an diesem wunden Fleck. Übrigens ist ein Engagement wie in Darmstadt nicht leicht wieder gefunden, wegen des unschätzbaren Vortheils durch 4 od. 5 Monate hindurch sein eigener Herr zu seyn. Unannehmlichkeiten gibts an jedem Theater und ich glaube an sehr vielen mehr als in Darmstadt [.]". - Vinzenz Lachner, der Bruder Franz und Ignaz Lachners, wurde 1831 Organist in Wien, 1836 Hofkapellmeister in Mannheim. - Etwas fleckig und gebräunt; im Mittelfalz annähernd durchtrennt; Bl. 2 mit kleinem Ausriß durch Siegelbruch.
