        HANDWRITTEN LOG OF THE AMERICAN BARK "ABBOT LORD," 1847-1848: An Unfortunate Vessel.

      1847. Original manuscript. Leather-backed boards. Very Good. 104pp, written in ink by at least three hands, few pencilled notations. The first two voyages (New Orleans to Liverpool, Liverpool to Boston) were under Jotham Blaisdell, Master. The others (Boston to Havana, New Orleans to Liverpool, Liverpool to Boston) were under Master Francis Nason. The trips involved rough passages, a leaking ship, stowaways, a drowning, desertions, &c. Bound in leather-backed marbled boards, scuffed, hole at top of spine, otherwise sound. 13" x 8 Capt. Blaisdell is the more literate and descriptive log-keeper, noting not only weather, wind, and sea conditions, but also which sails were used when. We read of cargo-loading and -unloading, pilots boarding, activities of the crew and the few passengers, &c. Nason's hand is legible, but sometimes difficult. ~ The bark "Abbot Lord" has sprung leaks previously on an 1846 voyage, according to documents at Mystic Seaport Museum. By the start of this log, her troubles are far from over: numerous gales, bad leaks, stowaways, problems with cargo and provisions, desertions of many crewmen, and three shipboard deaths, all are recorded. Here are just a few of the quotable passages. On the first day out, "...two lads made their appearance that had stowed themselves away. An Irish fishing boat coming alongside put them aboard...." "...child was born to Patrick Welch...sex female...." "...died this day Mary Conland, aged 40...." "...came to anchor at Deer Island," then lay in quarantine. "...leaking badly, the pumps constantly attended to...shiping mutch water...." "...found stowed in the cargo one boy...found below, stowed away...three boys...." "...gale again, cabin filled with water...sea wet the provisions...distroyed...everything adrift...." "...men came aft saying they could not stand to Pump being wore out...." "...came to anchor in the port of Corck...survey recommended Discharging the cargo...towed to Passage [Passage West, a port town in County Cork]...two men absent...." During the next few days, five more men go "absent," including the cook. After extensive repairs at Passage, during which lumpers unload and reload the cargo, the Bark sails toward Boston, encountering heavy gales, putting in at Falmouth for five days, &c. Six more men desert ship, &c., &c. It is worth noting that in 1845, the brave ship "Abbot Lord" had carried some 175 starving immigrants from Bremen to New Orleans, where they sought to settle amid peace and plenty.

      - Syracuse: Hall & Dickson; New York: A.S. Barnes, 1847. 8vo. 427pp. plus large folding map, two plates, and [2]pp. ads. Original brown publisher's cloth, spine gilt. Very rare edition complete with the Rufus Sage map. Considered by Howes and other authorities the "best edition" because of its inclusion of Rufus B. Sage's superb map of the West, which otherwise appeared only in Sage's book of the preceding year. It is far rarer than the regular Fremont map, which it resembles in many respects. Fremont's narrative is one of the most important of western explorations, chronicling his trip over the Oregon Trail and into the Great Basin. It was published in numerous editions.

With a frontispiece and numerous further tissue-guarded plates. With sections on famous sculptures and their sculptors. Robert William Sievier, (17941865), engraver, sculptor, and scientist. To improve his knowledge of the figure Sievier learned to model in clay and studied anatomy under Joshua Brookes. Subsequently, around 1823, he gave up engraving in favour of sculpture. His portrait busts included those of Lord Chancellor Eldon (exh. RA, 1825), Sir Thomas Lawrence (1830; Soane Museum, London), and Prince Albert, the prince consort (1842; Royal Collection). He also executed several memorial statues, including those of the physician Edward Jenner (1825; Gloucester Cathedral) and William Harcourt, third Earl Harcourt (1832; St Michael, Stanton Harcourt, Oxfordshire), and a large number of church monuments. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1822 to 1844, at the British Institution from 1825 to 1831, and at the Society of British Artists from 1829 to 1843. Sievier&#39;s portraiture was characterized by a bold naturalism which sometimes tended towards exaggeration, especially in the depiction of facial expressions and fleshy forma manner in which his work is comparable to that of his contemporary Samuel Joseph. He had an eye for detailfor example, in his reliefs for monumentsgained from his training as an engraver. In the latter part of his life Sievier abandoned sculpture and devoted himself to science, being involved in rubber production and in the early development of electric telegraphy.

He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1841. DNBCondition: In a blindstamped cloth binding. Externally generally sound although rubbed, front joint just starting.

Several of her ideas about the treatment of female prisoners were laid down in legislation -DNB. With publisher&#39;s catalogues to the rear. Including frontispieces to each volume. Complete in two volumes. Condition: In green cloth bindings. Externally, rather worn, with bumping, marks, discolouration and some sunning to the spines. Spines are cocked. Hinges are tender. Internally, generally firmly bound although strained in places. Ink signature to half-title. Pages are bright, though with some occasional instances of foxing. Tidemarks to the rear of volume II.

Conolly was an important early advocate of non-restraint in treating the mentally ill. His three humane goals are stated on the first pages of this book: "The recovery of the curable, the improvement of the incurable, the comfort and happiness of all the patients, should therefore steadily be kept in view by the architect from the moment in which he commences his plan; and should be the no less constant guide of the governing bodies of asylums in every law and regulation which they make" (pp.1-2).

        [LENGTHY AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JAMES H. CARLETON TO GEORGE EVANS, CONCERNING AFFAIRS IN THE MEXICAN- AMERICAN WAR]

      Buena Vista. July 21, 1847.. Buena Vista. July 21, 1847.. [16]pp., about 3500 words. Quarto, on folded folio sheets. Old fold lines. Very minor soiling and wear. Near fine. A very long letter regarding the Mexican-American War, written by a member of General Wool&#39;s staff to a friend back home in Maine. Carleton, a career army officer, author of a book on the Battle of Buena Vista, and ardent supporter of Zachary Taylor, describes his unit&#39;s march to Mazapil following some false information about a guerilla attack: "the first time American troops had been in Zacatecas." Following that he speculates on Santa Anna&#39;s troop strength and fortifications: "We have no news from Gen. Scott. By the last advices he has not pushed on his main army beyond Puebla. We learn that Santa Anna has fortified and prepared the capital for a vigorous defense, having some 12,000 regulars and some 20,000 irregular troops, with a large number of cannon. No doubt his strength is greatly magnified. If, even, he has that number, they cannot all be properly armed, much less disciplined and skilled in the use of their weapons. Such a force on a plain should be destroyed by 8000 American regular troops....Gen. Taylor could with 8000 regulars whip 40,000 such troops as Mexico can now bring in the field. His name is worth a third more than Gen. Scott&#39;s." He writes that he recently dined with General Taylor, and describes Taylor&#39;s plans for a full offensive. He adds that "the utmost good feeling does not subsist between Gen. Scott and Gen. Taylor," who has "never been satisfied with Gen. Scott&#39;s course in stripping him of his veteran troops and leaving him with only the volunteers who had never been under fire." Additionally, Carleton describes his own efforts to write a history, published the following year, of the Battle of Buena Vista, which Taylor had commanded at in late February, 1847. He also praises Taylor&#39;s performance at the battle and its demoralizing effect on Scott: "We feel very certain that nothing but death can interpose to prevent Gen. Taylor from being President....As a man of strong practical sense, good judgment, stern integrity, and with an earnest singleness of purpose, the good of the whole country, he hardly has an equal." James Henry Carleton (1814-73) was a native of Maine, commissioned as a lieutenant in the U.S. Army in 1839. He served in the Mexican-American War and later became a general, commanding Union troops in New Mexico during the Civil War. The letter&#39;s recipient, George Evans (1797- 1867) was a former U.S. Senator from Maine, his term having just ended at the beginning of 1847. He practiced law and continued to be politically active after his failed reelection bid.

During the next nineteen months Smith travelled extensively in China, submitting two important reports to the society. But his health forced him to return to England, where he met and wrote to Earl Grey about China, later enjoying some influence with Lord Palmerston.

"Smith was one of the first two Church of England missionaries to the newly opened ports of China. Instructed by the CMS to explore and advise on the society's future operations in China, and to settle and begin his own mission he embarked for China on 4 June 1844, reaching Hong Kong on 25 September 1844. During the next nineteen months Smith travelled extensively in China, submitting two important reports to the society. But his health forced him to return to England, where he met and wrote to Earl Grey about China, later enjoying some influence with Lord Palmerston. He resumed his former work as a CMS association secretary in early 1847 [when] his book A Narrative of an Exploratory Visit to each of the Consular Cities of China, and to the Islands of Hong Kong and Chusan was published in England" (ODNB). In 1849, at the instigation of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Smith became the first bishop of Hong Kong. Attractively presented copy of an uncommon work. Möllendorff 1210.

        Reminiscences of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey

      London - Houlston and Stoneman, 1847. London - Houlston and Stoneman, 1847 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An essay on the lives and works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey. With frontispiece. Cottle, in his Early Recollections, chiefly relating to Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1837), enumerated his generosities to Coleridge and Southey, and entered into details of Coleridge&#39;s opium habit. The confusion in Cottle&#39;s Recollections is greater than any one would think possible, said Southey; the book is inaccurate in its dates, and documents quoted are garbled. It has details on others such as Robert Lovell and William Gilbert. It has youthful portraits of Coleridge, Southey, Wordsworth, and Charles Lamb. A second edition was published in 1847 under the title of Reminiscences of Coleridge and Southey. Condition: Rebacked in red cloth with original boards preserved. Externally, sound, though with some bumping to the extremities and some rubbing. Internally, firmly bound. Some loss to title page. Pages are generally bright and clean, aside from some browning to the first and last few pages. Overall: GOOD..
