        Narrative of the Surveying Voyage of H.M.S. Fly , commanded by Captain F.P. Blackwood, R.N. in Torres Strait, New Guinea, and other islands of the Eastern Archipelago, during the years 1842-1846

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1847. Two volumes, octavo, with many engravings (full-page and textual), and a folding map at the end of each volume; a fine copy, complete with all advertisement leaves including the half-sheet advertisement for Leichhardt's Journal, in the original and unfaded blue-grey blind-stamped cloth. The voyage of HMS Fly. First edition: a fine copy, in original condition, of this important surveying voyage of coastal Australia. Jukes' account is particularly important for his description of the Queensland coast, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Torres Strait, and includes an impressively detailed map of the north-east coast from Endeavour River north to New Guinea. The Fly, Captain Blackwood, sailed from Falmouth on 11 April 1842 with the cutter Bramble. Jukes sailed as naturalist to the expedition, and with his captain's consent wrote the official narrative. The survey of Torres Strait and of the Great Barrier Reef, as well as the various New Guinea explorations, were all of great importance. The proper scientific understanding of the Barrier Reef could not begin until the completion of the survey, which Jukes charted for the first time in detail. Jukes' own close examination of the reef was also significant, and his chapter on the subject 'is an invaluable record. His observations strongly supported Darwin's theory of the formation of coral reefs…' (Davidson). Indeed, Jukes' interest in coral formation is neatly summarised by the account's terrific opening line, 'I landed for the first time in my life on a coral island.' Ingleton notes: 'the Admiralty decided in 1841 to have the Great Barrier Reefs explored and to have the gaps surveyed in order that some means might be devised for marking the most eligible of these openings, in order that they could be recognised in due time and passed through in comparative safety… The expedition was noteworthy for being the first to be despatched to Australia on a purely surveying mission…' (Charting a Continent, pp. 61-66).

        Nagasaki Miyage [Souvenir of Nagasaki]

      Nagasaki, 1847. 232 x 159 mm., 40 double leaves in the Japanese style; with altogether four full-page and 12 double-page woodcut illustrations; sewn in original pale blue paper wrapper with titling label; stitching loose but in excellent condition; newly preserved in a handsome oblong bookform box of dark blue quarter morocco, spine banded and gilt. Japanese woodcut depictions of Dutch traders in Nagasaki. This beautiful woodblock guide to Nagasaki and its sights is the first such book of its kind: it concentrates on the Dutch (and Chinese) traders in the city, in the pre-Meiji period when except under special circumstances Japanese people were forbidden to travel abroad and the few foreigners allowed into the country were confined to certain compounds within Japan. The merchants of the VOC or Dutch East Indies Company were exotic figures: their confinement to Deshima which was shared between Dutch and Chinese trading houses, meant that they would barely have been seen by most residents of Nagasaki, let alone other Japanese of the period. The depiction of the exotic foreigners in the Japanese decorative arts began in the early-eighteenth century, and the style in which they are shown is surprisingly consistent. Jack Hillier has noted of this publication that 'although separate-sheet prints of the Dutch and Chinese traders were produced in some numbers in Nagasaki from c. 1750, the earliest book on the town and its foreign commerce published in the town itself did not appear until 1847'. The illustrations include a woodcut map of the harbour showing a Dutch vessel, followed by a double-page woodcut showing Chinese traders seated at a table with a servant handing up books to them. Willem van Gulik, who has studied the nineteenth-century depictions of the Dutch residents in Japan, has identified this scene as the library of the Chinese trade settlement south of Deshima. (cf Van Gulik plate 46). Another double-page illustration shows a Dutch merchant in formal stance, his Indonesian servant carrying a decanter and glass on a tray. The figure is identified in Japanese as 'the red-haired man' - a commonly used tag for a Dutchman. Other illustrations include a panoramic view of the Deshima compound, a wonderful double-page view of a Dutch ship in harbour, and a double-page depiction (Van Gulik plates 47a and 47b) of Dutchmen with Japanese courtesans from Maruyama in the dining room of the Chief's residence on Deshima. These women, known as Oranda-yuki ("women that go with the Dutch"), 'were an important source of information on the lifestyle of the Dutch on Deshima'. A delightful portrait of a Dutch woman in evening dress seated in a chair depicts Mimi de Villeneuve, who came to Deshima to join her husband and whose features the Japanese found quite remarkable (cf Van Gulik plate 54 for another). A charming elephant ("Olifant") portrays an animal first brought into the country by the Dutch traders for presentation to the shôgun along with other natural curiosities. Other views of the Nagasaki region depict harbour scenes (including the junk fleet), the ships, bridges, streets and roofs of Nagasaki, river scenes and the surrounding countryside, a procession and a kite festival.

        A Residence of Twenty-One Years in the Sandwich Islands ; or, The civil, religious and political history of those islands: comprising a particular view of the missionary operations connected with the introduction and progress of Christianity and civilization among the Hawaiian people

      Hartford: Hezekiah Huntington, 1847. Octavo, with steel-engravings; original gilt and blind-stamped leather, small split to lower hinge, with the usual foxing, but a very good copy in the scarcer special binding. Cook responsible for his own fate. 'The most important book on the history of the American Protestant mission in Hawaii during the years 1820-1841, and one of the key books of Hawaiian history…' (Forbes). This is the first edition of one of the most informative books on Hawaii during the early missionary years. Bingham was instrumental in developing the idea that Cook's acceptance of the apparent worship of the Hawaiians in 1779 was largely responsible for his death, writing 'we can hardly avoid the conclusion, that for the direct encouragement of idolatry, and especially for his audacity in allowing himself like the proud and magisterial Herod to be idolized, he was left to infatuation and died by the visitation of God.' Bingham's name crops up everywhere in the history of the period: he arrived in Honolulu in 1820 and spent the following 21 years in missionary work. He quickly learned Hawaiian, and created a written version of the language which he used, with William Ellis, to begin printing in native Hawaiian; he helped his missionary colleagues to translate the Bible into Hawaiian. He received support from the royal family and the travels that he made through the islands with this official sanction enabled him to gather their impressions which appeared in this book written after he finally left for the United States in 1840. Sabin said that it was probably the best work on the Sandwich Islands There were additional Hartford editions in 1848 and 1849 and another one published at Canandaigua, New York, in 1855.

        South Australia Illustrated

      London: Thomas M'Lean, 1847. Large folio, with hand coloured pictorial title-page and 60 hand coloured plates; some slight ageing (as often), but an excellent copy in half dark green morocco, marbled edges and cloth sides. Long term consignment. Sixty handcoloured lithographs of South Australia. George French Angas came to South Australia at the behest of his father, who had established the South Australian Company in 1836. Arriving in 1844, Angas began a series of extensive travels through South Australia, travelling through the Mount Lofty Ranges to the Murray River and down to Lake Coorong, sketching the countryside, native animals, and the customs and dwellings of the local indigenous people. Within months he joined the governor, George Grey, as unofficial artist on his expeditions to the southeast, faithfully sketching and recording the natural beauty of the eight-year-old colony. Angas returned to England in 1846 to publish his views of South Australia and held an exhibition at the Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, with a view to attracting subscriptions for the publication. The drawings were described by Angas as 'entirely executed on the spot, from Life and Nature', and he claimed they represented 'the Natives, with their Manners and Customs, and the Picturesque Scenery… with unexaggerated truth and fidelity' (Tregenza, George French Angas). The exhibition was highly acclaimed and Angas' publishers began the painstaking process of transferring his original watercolour drawings to lithographic stone. Angas' particular style in depicting scenes of town and bush is instantly recognisable; his sympathetic and knowledgeable observations of the Aborigines and his portrayal of the flora and fauna offer an outstanding romantic interpretation of the Australian landscape. A lovely copy of South Australia Illustrated, George French Angas' greatest achievement, and without doubt one of the most famous and most desirable of Australian colour plate books.

        Message from the President of the United States, to the Two Houses of Congress: at the Commencement of the First Session of the Thirtieth Congress, December 7, 1847. 30th Congress, First Session, Executive Document no. 1.

      Washington: Wendell and Van Benthuysen, 1847. - 8vo., (9 1/8 x 5 ¾ inches). (Light spotting and some browning throughout). 13 fine folding lithographed maps, including those of the major California and New Mexico battles; five folding tables (one or two short tears at mounts, some new folds). Contemporary half deer, marbled paper boards (front cover nearly detached, spine quite worn). Provenance: Original official address label in manuscript to Dudley Marvin (1786-1856), U.S. Representative from New York, tipped in before the title page. Bookseller's label to front pastedown: "Aldredge Book Store Fine Books Dallas." First edition. This is Executive Doc. No. 1, of the Thirtieth Congress, issued for the Senate, and it is a large document, consisting of 1369 pages, plus an appendix relating to the war with Mexico and other western affairs. In addition to the important maps, it contains diplomatic correspondence, military reports, statistical records, occupation records, and other papers relating to the conflict, as well as the reports of the Army's Chief Engineer, the Superintendent of West Point, and the Chief of the Topographical Engineers. The first 500 pages alone is "a detailed military history of the Mexican War, except the opening operations of 1846 . . . accompanied by the reports of the officers in the field covering the military operations from the battle of Buena Vista to the capture of the city of Mexico. An appendix of 249 pages supplies further military reports, chiefly from subordinate officers" (Lamed 2014). The maps include: a "Plan of the Battle of Buena Vista," "Battles of Mexico: Line of Operations of the U.S. Army under the Command of Major General Winfield Scott on the 19th and 20th of August 1847, Surveyed by Maj. Turnbull, Capt. McClellan and Lieut. Hardcastle Corps of Top Engineers, Drawn by Lieut. Hardcastle," a "Sketch of the Battle of Sacramento," and an untitled map showing Sierra Nevada and the Gulf of California. "One of America's most successful conflicts militarily, the Mexican War added vast territories to the national domain. It also, however, provoked anti-Americanism in Mexico and contributed to the sectional tension that culminated in the Civil War. The conflict was an outgrowth of U.S. expansionism (expressed in the popular slogan 'Manifest Destiny,' coined in 1845). In an immediate sense, warfare erupted because of a dispute over the boundary separating Mexico and Texas, exacerbated by Mexico's defaulting in 1844 on payments to satisfy American citizens' claims for losses sustained in Mexico. The U.S. government, after annexing the Republic of Texas in 1845, upheld Texas's claim to the Rio Grande River as its border with Mexico. Mexican authorities neither recognized Texas's independence from Mexico (achieved in 1836) nor its annexation by the United States; they also claimed that Texas extended only to the Nueces River. The Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo, signed by U.S. negotiator Nicholas P. Trist with Mexican officials on 2 February 1848 and ratified by the U.S. Senate on 10 March, ended the war. It ceded to the United States some 500,000 square miles--including the disputed boundary area and what would become today's states of California, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and parts of Colorado and Wyoming--in return for $15 million and the U.S. government's assumption of up to $3.25 million in American claims against Mexico. The United States agreed to honor the property rights of current inhabitants of the ceded territories, though the process was unevenly applied, and most residents lost their land over time. The last U.S. forces evacuated Mexico in August 1848" (Robert E. May for ANB). Sabin 48113. Dudley Marvin was a lawyer and Representative from New York. In 1812 he served as lieutenant in the state militia and eventually became major general. He was elected as an Adams-Clay Republican to the Eighteenth Congress, and reelected as an Adams candidate to the Nineteenth and Twentieth Congresses (1823-1829).

        Narrative of a Journey round the World, during the Years 1841 and 1842

      London: Henry Colburn, 1847. Two volumes, octavo, with a frontispiece portrait and a folding map; small library stamp at the end of one volume; complete with the 24 pp. Colburn advertisements; an excellent copy in old half green morocco. An important book on Hawaii, Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. Simpson, Governor-in-Chief of the Hudson's Bay Territories in North America, was influential in revitalising the company's operations and greatly encouraged the exploration of its territories. Simpson left London in 1841, and went by way of Halifax and Boston to Canada, crossing by canoe to Vancouver. He made two visits to Sitka, and his material on Alaska is significant. He passed Fort Ross and made stops at San Francisco, Monterey, and Santa Barbara, and gives a detailed account of his time in California. He went on to Hawaii, where the company had a store. Forbes notes that 'This account of his visit to the islands is important for its full and accurate report of business and financial conditions in Honolulu… [his] suggestion led to the formation of a "commission" which proceeded to Washington DC , Paris, and London seeking the confirmation of Hawaiian independence from the three great powers. Simpson himself was the accredited third member of this commission'.

        Journal of an Overland Expedition in Australia , from Moreton Bay to Port Essington, a distance of upwards of 3000 miles, during the years 1844-1845

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1847. Octavo text with frontispiece and six aquatint plates (one folding) and woodcut vignettes; the three rare folding maps in a separate atlas volume; nineteenth-century polished calf, spines ornately gilt, the text volume with red and green morocco labels, map volume with longitudinal green label; in fine condition. Complete with the rare maps. A handsomely bound copy in lovely condition of Ludwig Leichhardt's account of his legendary expedition through Queensland to the far-northern coastline of Australia, complete with the famous suite of Arrowsmith maps. Leichhardt's meandering journey from Brisbane to Port Essington, the military base on the far north coast, ranks among Australia's most successful exploring expeditions. His scientific and geographic work were greatly admired during his lifetime, and despite more recent criticism of his reputation as an expeditionary leader, his life and unknown death have become part of Australian mythology. In the course of their harrowing fourteen-month journey - one of the longest inland expeditions undertaken - Leichhardt and his party travelled over three thousand miles of completely unknown country. It was generally believed that Leichhardt and his party had all perished, so when they appeared at Port Essington they were welcomed as if they had returned from the dead. Leichhardt returned to Sydney in March 1846, as a national hero. This outstanding set includes the three rare and desirable separately issued maps. Prepared and published by the great cartographer John Arrowsmith in 1847, they were issued separately but were intended as a complement to the octavo volume published by Boone in the same year. The maps are known to have been issued on both thick and fine paper: in this copy they are present in the fine paper issue, with all three expertly backed on fine linen and in excellent condition. These large and finely engraved maps represent an important achievement in Australian cartography as each map marks the route of Leichhardt and his men through previously uncharted wilderness. The maps were prepared by Arrowsmith from original field notes and charts by Leichhardt and reconciled with the coastal surveys of Matthew Flinders, Phillip Parker King, John Lort Stokes and Francis Price Blackwood. Arrowsmith was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society in 1863 for his tireless contributions to cartography, and in particular his maps of Australia and North America.

        Journal of an Overland Expedition in Australia , from Moreton Bay to Port Essington

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1847. Octavo, seven plates including frontispiece, further vignettes, with three maps mounted on linen in uniform folding case; fine in original publisher's cloth, lovingly preserved in a handsome gilt blue morocco solander case. Leichhardt complete with maps and in original condition. An excellent copy of the first edition of this great monument in the history of Australian exploration, here complete with the portfolio of maps in its original cloth binding. Leichhardt's Journal of an Overland Expedition documents one of the most unlikely and courageous ventures ever undertaken in the history of the continent. When Leichhardt arrived in Sydney in February 1842 he was considered learned but eccentric: he possessed no bush craft skills, had poor eyesight and was unable to shoot. Yet he proved a quick learner and launched successful forays as far north as Moreton Bay. For some years settlers had eagerly talked of finding a route from southern Queensland to the Northern Territory, so linking their abundant grazing districts with Asian markets. When a Government funded expedition stalled, Leichhardt headed his own venture funded by pastoralists and business-men impressed by the seemingly indefatigable German. What followed was one of the longest journeys of Australian inland exploration - a trek of stupefying distance, difficulty and endurance spanning 4800 kilometres. The party was racked by interpersonal conflict, inexperience and continual hostility from local Aboriginal tribes (in late June 1845 one member was killed and two others seriously injured during a raid near the Gulf of Carpentaria). After fourteen months they finally reached Port Essington in the Northern Territory in a state of perilous exhaustion. When Leichhardt and his men returned to Sydney they had been given up as lost. Celebrations lasted for months; he was hailed 'the prince of explorers' and received a sizeable sum raised by public subscription. His scientific and geographic work was greatly admired during his lifetime, but his reputation as an expeditionary leader has been criticised since. Leichhardt's mercurial temperament and mysterious death during a later expedition have become part of the mythology of European Australia.

        A Voyage of Discovery and Research in the Southern and Antarctic Regions, during the Years 1839-43

      London: John Murray, 1847. Octavo, two volumes, with a total of eight lithographic plates (including frontispieces), eight maps (three folding),m, and chapter titles with attractive steel-engraved vignettes after sketches by Hooker, manuscript dedication to front free endpaper of volume I; spines browned and showing some wear (rebacked retaining original gilt lettered cloth), water-stain affects frontispiece of first volume otherwise very good. Inscribed by Ross to George Peacock, Dean of Ely. First edition inscribed and signed by Captain Ross to the Reverend George Peacock, Dean of Ely. Peacock was a mathematics tutor at Cambridge, a friend and colleague of John Herschel and Charles Babbage, and had been influential in having a young Charles Darwin appointed to the Beagle. During his expedition Ross named a particularly high peak in the Admiralty Range at the head of the Kelly Glacier in honour of Peacock. Ross's account of his two voyages in the Erebus and Terror is 'one of the most important works in the history of Antarctic exploration' (Hill). In the course of the expedition Ross reached the highest latitude yet attained, determined the position of the Magnetic Pole and travelled within 160 miles of it. Ross was accompanied by the eminent botanist Joseph Dalton Hooker who contributed significantly to the study of Australian flora and later became a loyal friend of Charles Darwin; Hooker contributed many illustrations to the present volume. Of special interest is a large and dramatic folding lithograph of the Antarctic ice shelf, executed with a sense of scale dwarfing the vessels Erebus and Terror. This wonderful plate is followed by a large and finely engraved folding chart of the ice shelf marked with the surveys of Ross' expedition and the United States Exploring expedition under Captain Wilkes. The Antarctic bibliographer Michael Rosove notes that the publisher, John Murray, continued to issue the first edition for many years with the advertisements at the rear of the second volume updated as further copies were sent for binding and distribution to booksellers. The advertisements for this set are dated January 1847, indicating its earliest issue.

        Intersticies & intersections, or, an autodidact comprehends a cube

      New York: Russell Maret, 2014. <p>Maret, Russell. Interstices & intersections or, an autodidact comprehends a cube. Thirteen Euclidean propositions. Translated by Thomas Little Heath with commentary by Russell Maret. [pagination etc., accordion-folded.] New York: Russell Maret, 2014. [size; binding by Daniel Kelm] One of 71 numbered copies printed by Maret on a special making of Zerkall paper. Preserved in a clamshell box. Prospectus included. </p><p>A Letterpress Color Printing Tour de Force based on Euclid&#146;s Elements, designed by Russell Maret and set in type designed by him, and with X [need numbers] beautiful color illustrations by Maret derived from Euclidean diagrams, each one requiring from ten to fourteen or more impressions to produce. Maret&#146;s book has been compared Oliver Byrne&#146;s The First Six Books of the Elements of Euclid (1847), but it is vastly superior in its design and execution, and includes color images that it is unlikely that any other letterpress printer could achieve. Maret described his design process for this work as follows: </p><p>"I am beginning the project by reading and drawing proofs for all the propositions in Euclid&#146;s thirteen books [of the Elements]. In the process, certain propositions stand out as having a particular interest or relevance: they spark associations in literature, letter forms, or life experience (or all three). I then develop visual ideas, write sections of text, and read books that might inspire or relate to the proposition at hand. Eventually, I will choose one proposition from each of the thirteen books and pair them with accompanying textual and visual commentaries of my own. For the illustrations, I am first painting them in pencil, ink, watercolor, and/or acrylic. Once I am satisfied with an illustration, I redraw it in separations to prepare it for printing. For the translation from painting to print to work, most of the spreads I have designed so far involve between ten and fourteen press runs each. The text of the book will be set in my proprietary type family, Gremolata & Cancellaresca Milanese, and printed from photo-polymer plates. The binding will be executed by Daniel Kelm" (Prospectus). </p><p>Russell Maret is a fine printer and type designer working in New York City. He began printing in San Francisco as a teenager before apprenticing with Peter Koch in Berkeley and Firefly Press in Somerville, Massachusetts. He set up his own press at the Center for Book Arts, New York in 1993 and has been printing and publishing ever since. In 1996 Russell began teaching himself how to design typefaces, which led to a twelve-year study of letter forms before he completed his first typeface in 2008. The next year Russell was awarded the Rome Prize in Design from the American Academy in Rome. In 2011, he began working with the Dale Guild Type Foundry to convert some of his designs into new metal typefaces. </p>

Dover, Ohio, September 1847 - August 1854. 385 x 160 mm. Original reverse calf stamped in black, worn and rubbed. One leaf (pp. 46-47) torn out, light soiling and toning, upper portion of front flyleaf cut away but a very good example. Several manuscript sheets with text and figures laid in.</p><p>The manuscript ledger of an extremely active physician and landowner in Dover, Ohio, most likely Dr. Joseph Slingluff, who began his medical practice at Dover in 1828 and served as the town&#39;s first mayor when it was incorporated in 1842. Slingluff belonged to one of Dover&#39;s founding families: The initial settlement land (2175 acres) was purchased from Col. James Morrison of Kentucky in 1806 by Jesse Slingluff and his brother-in-law Christian Deardorff. The Deardorff and Slingluff names feature prominently in our ledger. Dover&#39;s prosperity increased dramatically with the building of the Erie Canal, as the canal&#39;s only tolling station was located there; the population grew from 46 in 1820 to nearly 600 in 1840, and the town became a flour mill and warehouse center. This prosperity is reflected in Dr. Slingluff&#39;s ledger, which records that he often saw more than 10 patients a day; the ledger also contains records of real estate owned by the doctor (including a small plat map) and the construction costs of his house. At the back are two pages recording difficult obstetric cases. Mansfield, The History of Tuscarawas County, Ohio (1884), p. 543 and passim. </p>

        Kapelle auf dem Alten Friedhof in Karlsruhe, 1847

      . Bleistift und Aquarell in Braun auf Papier, unten rechts monogrammiert und datiert: "WL. Juli 47.", unten links bezeichnet: "Capelle auf dem Friedhof in Carlsruhe", 30,3 x 22,9 cm. Als der junge Architekturstudent Friedrich Wilhelm Ludwig 1847 die Kapelle auf dem Alten Friedhof in Karlsruhe zeichnete, war das Gebäude gerade erst zehn Jahre alt. 1837 wurde es fertiggestellt. Der Architekt war der Weinbrenner-Schüler und spätere Karlsruher Professor Friedrich Eisenlohr. Ludwigs malerische Ansicht, die architektonische Genauigkeit mit ästhetischer Durcharbeitung paart, zeugt somit von dem Originalzustand der Kapelle, was von besonderem Interesse ist, da sie am 24. April 1944 stark zerstört wurde. 1948 wurde sie wieder aufgebaut und als Garnisonkirche der amerikanischen Armee eingeweiht. In dieser Ansicht der Kapelle tritt das konstruktionstheoretische Erscheinungsbild der Kapelle deutlich hinter dem malerischen Aspekt zurück. Die zarte Aquarellierung in Braun und die kleinen, nervösen Bleistiftstriche konzentrieren sich bereits auf die ersten Anzeichen des baulichen Alters. Die Verlagerung der Kapelle von dem Mittelpunkt des Blattes hin an den Rand trägt zur Abkehr von der rein architektonischen Bestandsaufnahme ebenso bei, wie die leicht geöffnete Tür, die dem ganzen Blatt einen anekdotischen Charakter verleiht.

        THE PUBLIC MEN OF THE REVOLUTION: INCLUDING EVENTS FROM THE PEACE OF 1783 TO THE PEACE OF 1815. IN A SERIES OF LETTERS

      Philadelphia: Carey and Hart, 1847. Philadelphia: Carey and Hart, 1847. First Edition. Hardcover. Some chipping to the head of the spine. Near Fine. Original blindstamped brown cloth. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of the author. First published in 1834, this is an enlarged edition with a biographical sketch of the author by his son. Howes S-1130; Sabin 93559: "An attack on Thomas Jefferson and a defense of the Federalist party." Franklin Delano Roosevelt&#39;s copy with his bold SIGNATURE "Franklin D. Roosevelt/Hyde Park" on the front endpaper along with the notation "Very fine copy." Roosevelt was sympathetic toward Jefferson, identifying with him as a leader who brought the government back into the hands of the people and who fashioned a government that served the best interests of the people rather than the interests of the privileged. On the pastedown opposite Roosevelt&#39;s signature is a pencil inscription by the former owner, A. Boyd Hamilton, State Printer of Pennsylvania in the mid-nineteenth century, dated 1887 presenting the book to his son. Hamilton&#39;s signature dated 1847 is also on the title page in ink. A fine example of a book from FDR&#39;s library with distinctly American content including much on George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

        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&#39;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.
