        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.

        Old Military Barrack Square Allotments. Minutes of evidence taken before the select committee.Monday 6 September, 1847.

      - Sydney, Govt Printer 1847. Foolscap modern cloth; 4pp & 2 large folding litho plans. Proposals for the redevelopment of what is now the Wynard area in the city. The two plans propose either a square in George street or something close to the present Wynard park. This was, as usual, an interminable discussion. Lewis, the colonial architect, says that he has been looking at draft plans since 1840 and he offers the new plan with the square in George street. The other plan, which was actually by Thomas Mitchell, is dated 1842. Other witnesses (who prefer Lewis' plan) point out that the land in question is worth a fraction of what it was in 1840. Lewis plan was adopted over the objections of Mitchell who immediately revised his plan. Sale of the land went ahead in accord with Lewis' plan but somewhere in there the government changed its mind and, despite an outcry, refunded some money, took back the land and we lost our handsome George Street square.

First Illustrated Edition. SUPERB CHESTNUT BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT AND INLAID, BY SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), covers with architectural gilt frame enclosing an inlaid sunken panel of blue-gray morocco, that on the upper cover densely stippled in gilt and inlaid with a Roman helmet and weapons within an olive wreath, that on lower cover with gilt-tooled inlaid shield and bows and arrows; raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with floral centerpiece, SKY BLUE MOROCCO DOUBLURES enclosed by a frame of brown morocco tooled with multiple gilt rules and decorative rolls and with floral cornerpieces, matching blue morocco endleaves with double gilt rule border, edges gilt and beautifully gauffered with olive branches and decorative borders. Original illustrated paper wrappers bound in at the rear. In a (slightly worn) silk-lined and padded green morocco box. Extra wood-engraved title, wood-engraved text illustrations, and head- and tailpieces. Insignificant thin, light graze to lower board, but A CHOICE COPY, the binding sparkling, and the volume opening only reluctantly as a sign of virtually no use. This notably masculine binding covers our first illustrated edition of historian, essayist, and poet Thomas Babington Macaulay's poetic retelling of stories from ancient Roman history. With this "Lays of Ancient Rome," originally published in 1842 and its many subsequent editions, Macaulay (1800-59) acted on the hypothesis that the early books of the ancient Roman historian Livy (64 or 59 B.C.-17 A.D.) were based upon long-lost oral poetry that had been rendered into prose. With the goal of returning Livy's stories to their original form, he expressed them in ballads for readers of English. With imagination and careful execution, our animated binding clearly reflects the volume's contents. The upper cover displays familiar symbols of ancient Rome: the fasces (the bundle of rods with projecting axe), the prominent abbreviation "SPQR" (standing for "the Senate and the People of Rome"), and the galea (the helmet of the Roman soldier). The lower panel continues the display of power with a decorative shield and quiver of arrows. Each panel is framed by Neoclassical motifs, and the whole projects the strength and majesty that was Rome. The illustrations here are by George Scharf (1820-95), English art critic, illustrator, and director of the National Portrait Gallery.

        The Life and Correspondence of Major-General Sir Isaac Brock , K.B.

      Simkin, Masrhall & Co. 1847 - 4.5 by 7.25 Inches, xii, [1]-402pp. Original blind stamped professionally rebacked. Very little foxing present very clean text. Very Good+ condition. Previous owners name and gift from a friend inscription March 6, 1884 on inside front cover end paper. Nice copy of a less found book than the first edition published two years prior in 1845 with 468pp. The first, edition of this Memoir was compiled in a very few weeks, amid other avocations, and while attending the sick bed of my father, who died shortly before its completion ; and owing to this want of preparation, as well as to the difficulty of obtaining materials after the lapse of so many years, and at so great a distance from the scene of Sir Isaac Brock's principal labours, I candidly confess that it did not satisfy my own mind. But its publication having happily drawn forth much valuable matter, which in a few years would otherwise have been lost, it will be seen, from a very cursory perusal of this volume, that it is a great improvement on its predecessor, as several errors, topographical and others, arising from the cause just mentioned, have been corrected - many additional letters from Sir Isaac Brock are introduced, while a few others to him of little interest are omitted - and some new and graphic anecdotes and incidents are interwoven in the course of the narrative. (The additional matter in this volume amounts to about one third of the first edition). Quoted from the Introduction by Tupper to the second edition. Brock was in the military in Jamaica and also served in Upper Canada. and was a general in the war of 1812 and in Canada became familiar with the Shawnee and also the chief at the time Tecumseh.

        History of Europe

      Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons 1847 - A comprehensive history of Europe during the turbulent times of the French Revolution, spanning the years 1789 - 1815. With an engraving from a bust of the author with a facsimile of his signature to frontispiece to first volume. In twenty volumes complete. Sir Archibald Alison, 1st Baronet FRSE(29 December 1792 - 23 May 1867) was a Scottish advocate and historian. He held several prominent legal appointments. When travelling in France in 1814 Alison conceived the idea of his expansive History of Europe from the Commencement of the French Revolution to the Restoration of the Bourbons. This multi-volume set is usually regarded as Alison's chief historical work and is considered to be the first scholarly English-language study of the French Revolution. Originally published in ten volumes between 1833 and 1843, History of Europewas revised and reprinted many times throughout the century, including numerous foreign language editions. The work is one of vast industry, containing a wealth of information communicated in a vigorous though wordy style. Disraeli satirises the author in Coningsby as Mr. Wordy, who wrote a history to prove that Providence was on the side of the Tories. Such criticism notwithstanding, History of Europe proved to be a huge commercial success. Alison also composed a comprehensive survey of the military campaigns of the Duke of Marlborough, as well as two standard works on the criminal law of Scotland. With previous owner's ink inscriptions dated 1847 to front free endpaper to some volumes. Bound by Remnant and Edmonds with binder's label to rear pastedown to some volumes.

Account of Coulter&#39;s time on-board the Stratford whaler, captain Abijah Locke c.1833-6, the book opening with an account of a successful whale chase. A ship&#39;s surgeon, "little seems to be known of Coulter beyond his personal narratives" (Howgego). A keen observer, and an engaging writer, Coulter offers an informative and highly readable narrative, Hill noting that "the early materials on California and Melanesia are of importance." Prize inscription on the bound-in original front free endpaper presenting the book to Master Herbert Kelly in 1855. Herbert would appear to be the son of the bookbinder John Kelly, which would explain why this binding is of far better quality than an average mid-nineteenth-century prize binding.
