        Grand Tour diary.

      1846-47 1846 - Octavo (217 x 136 mm), 122 pp. Contemporary brown quarter roan, dark purplish-brown morocco-grain cloth sides, with the Parisian stationer's ticket of Hippolyte Jeanbin. Spine a little worn at foot, binding rubbed at extremities, internally clean; generally in very good condition. Manuscript, with later elucidations almost certainly by the author. An entertaining Grand Tour diary, chatty and discursive. John Horatio Nelson (1825–1917) was great-nephew of the hero of Trafalgar, the second son of Thomas Bolton, who changed his surname on becoming the 2nd Earl Nelson. Born at Brickworth House, Whiteparish, Wiltshire, he was educated at Eton and Harrow, and Trinity College, Cambridge. He took holy orders and was curate (successively vicar and rector) of a number of livings in Sussex, Berkshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, and Wiltshire. The 21-year old Nelson set out on 12 November 1846. His journal opens in breezy style: he takes the train from London to Dover and then crosses by packet to Calais in the company of "an agreeable Englishman who I found to be a government agent". He purchased this notebook in Paris, at the premises of the fashionable stationer Hippolyte Jeanbin, situated at number 2 place Vendome, "au coin de la rue St. Honoré". Naturally, he takes in Notre Dame and in the evening of that day – "having seen Ld Brougham in the Cafe" – he goes to dine and is "very curiously detained after dinner by a joke of a very amusing character. These were 3 Americans sitting near me one of whom, a very clever, & well informed man had a bottle of Champagne, & for his amusement shot the cork from the bottle at an elderly gentleman that was passing the other side of the table. Curious enough the gentleman stopped, & said his name was Partridge". He fills the days with visits to the Louvre and various churches and in the evening dines at the table d'hôte. He then leaves for Chalons ("very heavy and filthy roads, & very bad horses") before taking a steam boat to Lyons. Then Arles to Marseilles and boat ("a bad one") to Genoa. Next is Lucca and Florence (including the Boboli Gardens with a "sharp frost" on the ground). He arrives in Rome on Christmas Eve ("a grand procession of the Pope"), but on Christmas Day morning is "not very well" but nevertheless hears a "very fine vespers" at Santa Maria Maggiore. A few days later he visits "some of the finest sculptors studios in Rome. and a very fine maker of cameos". The following day he and two friends take a trip out to the neoclassical Villa Torlonia where he finds the gardens "very cocknified". Nelson attends at least two balls (one at the French ambassador's, where Lord Walpole introduces him to Count Pellegrino Rossi). There is much walking, riding and driving in the Borghese Gardens and looking at pictures and churches before finally leaving the Eternal City on the morning of 8 April 1847 "with much regret". Two days later he is in Naples "which much struck me on entering from its fine & animated appearance after leaving Rome where one looks more for grandeur & silence amongst the ancient Ruins". Next day he is off to Pompeii for the first of several excursions to the site. In the Bay of Naples he witnesses fisherman bringing in a catch of "swordfish & several small tunny fish, which are very curious-looking animals". One evening Vesuvius "vomited forth to peak advantage appearing like a grand display of fireworks with streams of lava running down the sides". At the Museo Borbonico he makes a reference to his illustrious forebear Lord Nelson, when discussing the equestrian statue of Balbus: "which formerly stood at Portice [Portici] & when Ld Nelson bombarded the French who had possession of Portice a cannon shot struck off the head of the horse which was afterwards restored by Canova". He then heads for home via Florence (where there is time for "strawberry ices" in the Parco delle Cascine). Bologna and Ferrara follow (where he goes to the "opera of Nebuchadnessar" - Verdi's Nabucco, first pe

        [COMPREHENSIVE COLLECTION OF IOWA TERRITORIAL LAWS, 1839 - 1846]

      Dubuque, Burlington, & Iowa City, 1846. Nine volumes. Publication details and pagination given below. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Minor shelf wear, some chipping to labels. Small ink library stamp and ink ownership inscriptions on titlepages, all but one volume trimmed close, minor marginal staining to a few volumes, light foxing. Good. A comprehensive run of Iowa territorial printings including the extra sessions for July 1840 and June 1844. Iowa was admitted as a state in December 1846. The STATUTE LAWS of 1839 is an important title, as it is the first legal work printed in Iowa. The works included here are as follows: 1) THE STATUTE LAWS OF THE TERRITORY OF IOWA, ENACTED AT THE FIRST SESSION OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF SAID TERRITORY, HELD AT BURLINGTON, A.D. 1838-'39. Dubuque: Russell & Reeves, Printers, 1839. [2],597,[1]pp. Small triangular hole in the titlepage and following leaf, some tiny tape repairs to the next dozen leaves. This is essentially the first legal code for Iowa and the Nebraska, Dakota, and Montana territories. Issued as the first collected Iowa laws, it became famous as "Old Blue Book," which was adopted to serve for many years as the law of all the country west of the Missouri to the Rocky Mountains between the 42nd and 45th parallels. This prints the Northwest Ordinance, the act to establish the territorial government of Iowa, and other resolutions and acts of the Territory. This was the second book printed in Iowa Territory, preceded only by a volume of the Wisconsin legislature, printed in Burlington in 1838, when that legislature was forced to temporarily relocate. "The famous 'Old blue book,' which was for many years the law of all the country west of the Rocky Mountains between the forty-second and forty-ninth parallels of latitude" - Eberstadt.

      1846. Large 8vo. 1½ pp. on bifolium. To an unidentified recipient, answering a request for a copy of his Ottoman History or the Divan of Hafiz: "[...] Ihren Wunsch eines Exemplars der osmanischen Geschichte oder des Diwans von Hafis zu erfüllen, bin ich leider nicht im Stande, da ich von dem ersten [...] Werke selbst nur ein Exemplar mehr besitze und Hafis, wenn ich auch ein Exemplar desselben kaufen wollte, nicht mehr zu haben, sondern längstens vergriffen ist; ich sende Ihnen aber dafür fünf Bändchen des Gemäldesaals, die untereinander in keinem Zusammenhang stehen und deren Inhalt für Sie selbst mehr Interesse haben dürfte, als die zehn Bände der osmanischen Geschichte, samt dem Umblick der Reise nach Brussa, den zwei Abhandlungen Samachschari's, und Ghasali's und der Zeitworte des Gebetes, die nicht nur nach dem Tode meiner innigst geliebten Gattinn, sondern auch nach dem großen Unglücke, das mich Anfangs Septembers durch den Tod meines hofnungsvollen 21 jährigen jüngeren Sohne betroffen hat, als die beßte Tröstung erprobt worden von Ihrem hochachtungsvoll ergebenen / Hammer-Purgstall [...]". - Some brownstaining and wrinkling.

        UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. STATE OF TEXAS...I HAVE DRAWN UPON YOU...

      New Braunfels, 1846. Printed indenture, 10 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches, executed in ink. Some old folds, light soiling, and "55" written in red pencil in top blank margin. Very good. Printed indenture, executed in ink and signed in full by John O. Meusebach as Trustee of the German Emigration and Rail-Road Company, drawing on the banking firm of H. Flersheim in Frankfurt, for the sum of $3000 to be deposited to the account of the Company, dated Dec. 12. Meusebach, a highly educated and civilized man, came to Texas from Germany in 1845 to succeed Prince Carl of Solms-Braunfels as commissioner-general of the Verein zum Shutze Deutscher Einwanderer in Texas, in the course of which he assumed Texas citizenship, oversaw the affairs of the colonists, and accomplished the 1847 treaty with the Comanche chiefs which made colonization possible. This document, coming from the period of his service to the Verein, no doubt represents a draft for funds to further the establishment of the colony, the cities of New Braunfels and Fredericksburg, and the attempted settlement of the financial horror show which Prince Corl left behind. A superb piece, signed by one of the major figures of early Texas colonization.

        Le Moniteur des Indes Orièntales et Occidentales, recueil de memoires et de notices scientifiques et industriels, de nouvelles et de faits, importants concernant les possessions Néerlandaises, d'Asie et d'Amérique... avec la coopération de plusieurs membres de la Société des Arts et de Sciences de Batavia. I-III(1-4).

      La Haye et Batavia, Belinfante et l'Imprimerie de l'État, 1846-1848. In two volumes, and four issues. Large 4to (30.7 x 23.5; 32.0 x 25 cm). Volume I (1845-1847): title page, frontispiece (portrait), vi pp., half title to Première partie (sciences, arts et industrie), 342 pp., half title to Deuxième partie (revue coloniale), 128 pp; 5 maps (of which 4 larger, folding), two plates of which one hand-coloured (of 3). Contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards. Spine with gilt ornaments and title. Marbled endpapers, speckled edges; Volume II [12 issues in 10] (1847-1848), half titles to Première partie and Deuxième partie, ii, 392, 116, [ii], viii pp.; engraved portrait (to be used as frontispiece), four large, folded maps, and four plates on three sheets; Volume III [four issues in three] (1848): 148, 32 pp. Both volumes in original printed wrappers.= An expensive (originally sold for 18 Dutch florins per volume!) and now very rare periodical, complete in three volumes, of which we hold the first two and parts 1-3 of the third. The purpose of this important work was to disseminate better knowledge of the Dutch Colonies (mainly on Indonesia) internationally, for which reason it was published in French. Each volume contains many interesting historical, biographical and scientific contributions by such authors as the ichthyologist P. Bleeker, the explorer and geologist Junghuhn, the medical doctor orientalist and Japanologist Von Siebold himself, the zoologist S. Müller, the geographer Melvill de Carnbee, etc. For example: S. Müller, "Notice sur quelques points de la Nouvelle-Guinée"; Bleeker, "Notice sur la topographie physico-médicale de Batavia: Végétation et faune"; Siebold, "Essai historique, statistique et politique sur le commerce du Japon"; and, by le Baron P. Melvill de Carnbee, the fine large, double-folded and tinted "Carte générale des possessions Néerlandaises aux Indes- Orientales, accompagnée de tableaux indiquant la latitude et la longitude des principaux points", which shows that two sultanates on Sumatra were still independent, and a second, large folding chart showing the principal mountains (often volcanoes) of Sumatra, Java, Celebes (Sulawesi), Borneo (Kalimantan), etc. Of special interest is the coloured plate of Javanese fruits, meant to be an advert for an extremely rare elephant folio publication on such by J. Schnell. The third volume has some large papers on fish, by Bleeker. Von Siebold was editor of the first volume only. The first volume is in a nice, contemporary binding; the second is in original printed wrappers, as issued. One plate with a view at Neira (Moluccas) is lacking. A few wrappers with some fraying and chipping, but mostly very good. Some light foxing and toning, but nearly all pages, maps and plates clean. A very good set. Sabin, 49982.
