        Framed Autographed Note Signed in the third person

      1847. unbound. 1 page, 2 x 4 inches, no place, December 24, 1847, in full: "Mrs. Madison's love and thanks to Mrs. Duncan for her excellent present." Float-mounted inside an off-white matte with a double opening containing an original 7 x 5.5-inch engraving by William Chappell, circa 1812, and delicately set into a gray and gold wooden frame, measuring 15.5 x 11 inches. This note was written to the wife of Kentucky Congressman Garnett Duncan who visited Washington, D.C. in 1847 and befriended the former First Lady, often presenting her with food packages. At the time this letter was written, Dolley Madison was so poor that she had to accept money from a former slave and hand-outs from her neighbors on Lafayette Square. She died two years later. Fine condition. First Lady and wife of President James Madison. In 1814 she famously saved many state papers and a portrait of George Washington as British soldiers advanced on the capital, barely escaping with the national treasures as the White House was occupied and looted.

        Gesetz der Urgesundheitskunde. Erneuert zu München, am 21. und 22. Iuli 1847.

      München, 1847.. Lithographierter Einblattdruck. 32 x 38,5 cm.. Über KVK nur in der Stadtbibliothek Mainz und im Stadtarchiv München nachweisbar. - Sehr seltener Einblattdruck mit den 10 Thesen des Gesundheitsapostels Ernst Mahner zur "Urgesundheitskunde", die hier auf zwei Tafeln in der Art der Gesetzestafeln Moses abgebildet sind. Ernst Mahner hatte einige Jahre in Deutschland aufsehenerregende Auftritte, er "wandelte mit priesterlicher Würde in langem Gewande barhäuptig, mit wallenden Haaren und mächtigem Vollbart, durch die Straßen. Er hatte seine Heilslehre nach Mosis Vorbild in zehn Gebote gekleidet, schlug sie öffentlich an, wie Luther seine Thesen, und verteidigte sie öffentlich in Vorträgen gegen mäßiges Eintrittsgeld. Er eiferte wider die geistigen Getränke und das 'stinkgiftige Schmauchkraut', rühmte das Wasser und pries bombastisch die gütige Natur nach der Art der heutigen Naturärzte" (Adolf Kussmaul in "Jugenderinnerungen eines alten Arztes", Stuttgart 1899). - Kussmaul weiß über den komischen Heiligen weiter zu berichten: "Böse Zungen sagten ihm nach, sein Gesetz sei strenger als der Apostel gegen sich selbst, und behaupteten fest, sie hätten Mahner im weltlichen Gewande bei Trüffelpastete und Sherry im Hinterstübchen eines Mannheimer Restaurants überrascht. - Es wurde uns erzählt, er steige jetzt mit seinem Meister täglich auf den Königsstuhl, um dort oben im Walde auf den Wegen und Halden Sonnenbäder zu nehmen; sie liefen fast unbekleidet barfuß einher. Leider hatte die Polizei kein hygienisches Einsehen, sie verbot diese stärkenden Übungen, um den Damen der Stadt den verleideten Besuch des Königsstuhls wieder zu ermöglichen. Mahner war wirklich ein ungewöhnlich abgehärteter Mensch. Die Zeitungen berichteten von einem erstaunlichen Schauspiel, das er an einem sonnigen Wintertage den Bewohnern von Mainz bereitet hatte. Auf einer Eisscholle stehend, in Sandalen und nur an den Hüften bekleidet, soll er, einen Becher Rheinwasser schwingend, auf dem Strom an der Stadt vorbeigetrieben haben. - Der Abhärtung ungeachtet, hat er kein hohes Alter erreicht. Verkommen im Elend, starb er im städtischen Hospital zu Konstanz." - Etwas fleckig und leicht gebrauchsspurig. Mehrfach gefaltet.

        Mining Manuscript Correspondence & Letters 1958 - 1969

      An extensive archive of manuscript letters, postcards, notes etc from A. K. Hamilton Jenkin; with lengthy and detailed typescript replies etc from Justin Brooke, relating to the Cornish Mining industry, in relation to the " Mines and Miners of Cornwall " series. The archive consists of approximately 20 postcards and 49 manuscript letters (mainly of two pages) in the hand of A.K.H.J, for instance, " I am now revising my St. Erth, St. Hilary, Breage "Part". I wonder if you have any M. J. [ Mining Journal ] extracts on Ennys Wheal Virgin. I have notes from a M.S. report of circa 1847 but little or nothing from the M. J." From Justin Brooke to A.K.H.J there is a large batch of typescript sheets of " minor amendments " ( to " Mines and Miners " ), Index of Mines, Map reference of Mines, etc. Also 81 typescript copies of letters from J. B. to A.K.H.J with copious amounts of information on Cornish mines and the mining industry, suggestions and information, for the " Mines and Miners " series. For instance, " the enlarged sett of Calstock Consols had an eastern boundary somewhere about the Kelly Railway line, since Spargo (1865 p.138) notes that a fine lode of gossan 23' wide had been cut by the company about 60 fms. west of the engine shaft, which rather suggests that the old Trelawny Consols sett, or the western part of it, was included in Calstock Consols. The last named continued to work until about 1866 . " All contained within an elegant custom made drop sided box. A.K.H.M published the highly respected series of 16 volumes of the " Mines and Miners of Cornwall," between the years 1961-70 this detailed correspondence covers this period. Justin Brooke who was proof reading the series, suggesting alterations and amendments, as well as contributing large quantities of original information, much of which only he had access to through his own large collection of books, manuscripts and maps relating to the Cornish mining industry. Justin Brook's popular work " Stannary Tales the Shady Side of Mining ", published in 1980, was dedicated " To A. K. Hamilton Jenkin who guided my steps ". Book.

        Valley towards Saltillo, from near the base of "Palace Hill," at Monterey (looking to the S. West), No. 3

      G. & W. Endicott, New York 1847 - Daniel Powers Whiting (1808-1892) (after); Charles Parsons (1821-1910) (lithographer);Two-tone lithograph; 12 x 18.75 inches, image. Landscape print of the site of a battle between the U.S. Army and the Mexican Cavalry on September 21-22, 1846, during the Mexican War. It is one of five prints from the Army Portfolio. The peaceful valley with the Sierra Madre mountain range in the distance is contextualized in the lower margin, which explains the significance of various sites. This is a two-tone lithograph in black and a yellow tan color; other examples of the print, including one in the collection of the Library of Congress, have some additional color. The prints were made from drawings by U.S. Army Captain Daniel Powers Whiting when he served under General Zachary Taylor as the army advanced from Corpus Christi, Texas, to Monterrey, Mexico, and captured the city. Whiting, a talented artist as well as an officer had made many more drawings, but all but five were lost in a Mississippi River steamboat that sank. These were transferred to stone by the prominent lithographer Charles Parsons, and published as an edition of 24 in 1847; hence they are scarce today. After 2002, Whiting's great-great-grandson donated an even rarer complete set of five prints to the Corpus Christi Libraries, which was appraised at $25,000. According to a June 2011 article in the Corpus Christi Caller, a book based on Whiting's memoirs and lithographs is being readied for publication. Condition: Generally very good, recently professionally cleaned and deacidified, with some light remaining toning, wear, soft creases, Few short marginal tears and chips professionally restored as backed on Japanese paper.

        Medinet About, Thebes.

      Moon, F.G., London 1847 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.

        Gesetz der Urgesundheitskunde. Erneuert zu München, am 21. und 22. Iuli 1847.

      München, 1847. - Lithographierter Einblattdruck. 32 x 38,5 cm. Über KVK nur in der Stadtbibliothek Mainz und im Stadtarchiv München nachweisbar. - Sehr seltener Einblattdruck mit den 10 Thesen des Gesundheitsapostels Ernst Mahner zur "Urgesundheitskunde", die hier auf zwei Tafeln in der Art der Gesetzestafeln Moses abgebildet sind. Ernst Mahner hatte einige Jahre in Deutschland aufsehenerregende Auftritte, er "wandelte mit priesterlicher Würde in langem Gewande barhäuptig, mit wallenden Haaren und mächtigem Vollbart, durch die Straßen. Er hatte seine Heilslehre nach Mosis Vorbild in zehn Gebote gekleidet, schlug sie öffentlich an, wie Luther seine Thesen, und verteidigte sie öffentlich in Vorträgen gegen mäßiges Eintrittsgeld. Er eiferte wider die geistigen Getränke und das `stinkgiftige Schmauchkraut`, rühmte das Wasser und pries bombastisch die gütige Natur nach der Art der heutigen Naturärzte" (Adolf Kussmaul in "Jugenderinnerungen eines alten Arztes", Stuttgart 1899). - Kussmaul weiß über den komischen Heiligen weiter zu berichten: "Böse Zungen sagten ihm nach, sein Gesetz sei strenger als der Apostel gegen sich selbst, und behaupteten fest, sie hätten Mahner im weltlichen Gewande bei Trüffelpastete und Sherry im Hinterstübchen eines Mannheimer Restaurants überrascht. - Es wurde uns erzählt, er steige jetzt mit seinem Meister täglich auf den Königsstuhl, um dort oben im Walde auf den Wegen und Halden Sonnenbäder zu nehmen; sie liefen fast unbekleidet barfuß einher. Leider hatte die Polizei kein hygienisches Einsehen, sie verbot diese stärkenden Übungen, um den Damen der Stadt den verleideten Besuch des Königsstuhls wieder zu ermöglichen. Mahner war wirklich ein ungewöhnlich abgehärteter Mensch. Die Zeitungen berichteten von einem erstaunlichen Schauspiel, das er an einem sonnigen Wintertage den Bewohnern von Mainz bereitet hatte. Auf einer Eisscholle stehend, in Sandalen und nur an den Hüften bekleidet, soll er, einen Becher Rheinwasser schwingend, auf dem Strom an der Stadt vorbeigetrieben haben. - Der Abhärtung ungeachtet, hat er kein hohes Alter erreicht. Verkommen im Elend, starb er im städtischen Hospital zu Konstanz." - Etwas fleckig und leicht gebrauchsspurig. Mehrfach gefaltet.
