The cases range from disputes over hay deals to disputes with the operators of canal boats. The manuscript or partly printed documents relating to specific legal cases are laid or pinned into the docket; these include executions, summonses, and subpoenas.

Childs, which spans over 10 pages (see leaves 40-47). It concerns young female student who was beaten badly in a classroom. Some of its more notable passages: "Plaintiff declares (.) said Dft violently beat maimed and severely injured Charlotte Infant Daughter of Plaintiff and that whereas the said Charles CC. Childs did so beat wound and injure the said Charlotte. that her health and Constitution is greatly enjoined. (.) Deft Pleads qualification in punishing the said Charlotte (.) as a Stubborn disobedient pupil of his school the Deft.

        PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL CONVENTION OF COLORED PEOPLE, AND THEIR FRIENDS, HELD IN TROY, N.Y., ON THE 6th, 7th, 8th AND 9th OCTOBER 1847

      Troy: J.C. Kneeland & Co., 1847. 32pp. Dbd. Light foxing to final leaf. Very good. A scarce pamphlet recording the proceedings of the 1848 National Convention of Colored People, attended by Frederick Douglass and other notable African Americans. Included here are reports given by committees on the possibility of establishing African American Commerce with Jamaica and the West Indies, agriculture, and the best approaches toward abolition. Looming large at the convention was the question of whether it would be advisable to establish a National Press as a vehicle for the movement - a newspaper "that shall constantly point out the principles which should guide our conduct and our labors, which shall cheer us from one end of the land to the other, by recording our acts, our sufferings, our temporary defeats and our steadily approaching triumph - or rather the triumph of the glorious truth 'Human Equality,' whose servants and soldiers we are." In attendance at the meeting was Frederick Douglass, who argued with many others that a press on that scale would be unsustainable: "A paper started as a national organ, would soon dwindle down to be the organ of a clique.... He was in favor of sustaining the RAM'S HORN, NATIONAL WATCHMAN, and NORTHERN STAR." Scarce. Unrecorded by Blockson or Sabin. OCLC locates fewer than ten copies.

        THE PICTURESQUE AND POPULAR HISTORY OF ENGLAND. (In the original parts consisting of 6 parts in 6 volumes)

      London: David Bogue, 1847. - London: David Bogue, 1847. 1847. Fair. - Octavo, 7-1/2 inches high by 5 inches wide. Softcovers. Six parts, each bound in pictorial tan wraps titled with an illustration of knights gathered around their seated king framed by trees as crowds line the street leading to the castle pictured in the background. Text, consisting of "Advertisement" for the series, is printed on the back cover of each volume. The front cover of the first volume is detached with dark tape stains along the left edge and to the remnants of the spine. The covers are darkened with some creases and chips to the edges and the spines are chipped. The top corner of the last book's rear cover has been repaired with tape. 363, [i] & xx consecutively numbered pages. Each part is illustrated with 2 full-page engraved plates for a total of 12 plates. A bookplate is mounted inside the front cover of the first book. There is dampstaining to the plates which illustrate each volume and some occasional pencil marks and highlights. The parts are laid together in a plain green cloth chemise and housed in a later green cloth slipcase titled in gilt on the spine and identified as "Original Parts". RARE. Apart from a copy in the Duke University Library bound without the titled front covers we have been unable to locate any other existing copy, either bound or in the original parts.The sixth part ends with the Anglo- Saxons and the Battle of Hastings.Printed by T.C. Savill at 4, Chandos Street, for David Bogue."There has long been an outcty amongst the graver class of critics, that historical novels are a great evil, inasmuch as they misrepresent admitted facts: yet in spite of this denouncement, they are still written and read, while history itself is comparatively neglected. Nor is the reason at all difficult to comprehend; the dry, hard, matter-of-fact style which the generality of historical writers consider it necessary to adopt, has, to young and imaginative minds, somewhat of a forbidding appearance. This evil can only be remedied by bringing the light and popular style in which these works are composed to bear upon history,-- to describe its important truths in a more picturesque and familiar manner,-- to bring out the actors and the scenery more boldly before the eye of the reader,-- to throw more of a poetical spirit into the narrative,-- and to give it all the fascination of fiction, without altering a single recorded truth." [Quoted from the "Advertisement" printed on the rear cover of each part].Critics appear to have differed in their opinion of Thomas Miller's stated aim. The Church of England Quarterly Review, Vol. 21 for the year 1847, states that "We may add that the author appears to have selected the safest authorities for his facts, and has thrown over the dryness of history the grace, without the exaggeration, of poetry. This work is liberally embellished--two engravings to the number-- and the whole affair, as regards typography and arrangement, worthy of the originality of the undertaking."Commenting on the author's "Advertisement", the June 5th, 1847 edition of "The Spectator" proclaims "If this were done sparingly and with original knowledge under the guidance of a severe taste, life and variety might be given to a work, without losing sight of its nature; which is recorded history, not imaginary description of fluent rethoric. Indeed, when they thought the case required it, Sanest, Livy, Arnold, and other historians have fulfilled Mr. Miller's theory as a matter of course. In his own development of it, he seems to us more likely to substitute fanciful additions and a dreamy sort of reverie, consisting half of imagined facts and half of mere opinions, than to rise to the height he rums at."An advertisement in the January 1, 1847 "Publishers' circular and booksellers' record" states that the finished work will "form three handsome volumes". Nonetheless, it may well be that these first six parts were all that were published. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Account of a new anaesthetic agent, substitute for sulphuric ether in surgery and midwifery

      Edinburgh: Sutherland and Knox; London: Samuel Highley, 1847. FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT, SECOND EDITION (POSTMARKED A FEW DAYS LATER THAN THE FIRST. Unbound as issued. Title and last 4 leaves detached with trace of thread remaining. Upper blank corner of last leaf torn away and occasional slight soiling. Presentation copy by Simpson to Dr. J.V.C. Smith, editor of the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal. Preserved in a morocco-backed slipcase. First edition, second issue, published two or three days after the first. In this pamphlet, Simpson (1811-70), professor of midwifery at the University of Edinburgh, described the advantages of chloroform over ether and cited several cases where it had been used successfully. He was the first to appreciate the value of chloroform as an anesthetic, having used it in an obstetrical case on November 8, 1847, when he administered it to a woman with a previous history of difficult labor; the baby was born without complications about twenty-five minutes after the first inhalation. Despite Simpson's success with chloroform, he encountered a great deal of opposition from conservative doctors and clergymen. The medical establishment did finally accept his efforts when Queen Victoria chose to take chloroform for the birth of Prince Leopold in 1853. The first printing of Simpson's pamphlet bears a postscript dated November 12, 1847. This second printing bears a postscript dated three days later and has an additional paragraph at the end. Simpson most likely received this copy directly following its printing, as it is postmarked November 19. For a complete discussion of the differences between the two printings, see Fulton and Stanton. Both printings are extremely rare. On the last blank page is Dr. Smith's address in the author's hand, with postmarks dated November 19th at Edinburgh and November 21st at Liverpool. Simpson apparently mailed the pamphlet to Smith without an envelope, addressing it on the blank verso of the last leaf. The Boston Medical and Surgical Journal first mentioned Simpson's discovery in its issue of December 29, 1847, and acknowledged receipt of Simpson's pamphlet in its issue of January 5, 1848. It was in this same periodical, in 1846, that Bigelow's announcement of the discovery of sulfuric ether as a surgical anaesthetic was made.

Little seems to be known of the life of Ferdinand Colas, other than he was born in France in 1820, but lived in England from at least 1841 until his death in 1876. From 1844 to 1849, he's listed as a pasteboard box maker on Fleet Street, and again in 1861. From 1851 to 1859, he's listed as a photographer at 105 Cheapside, London, the earlier years in partnership with F.A. Mouqué. He was a student of N.P. Lerebours, a prominent French manufacturer of lenses, cameras, optical instruments, and photographic supplies, as well as an accomplished daguerreotypist. In this short manual, Colas discusses the differences between the then established French method, and the "so called, American method." The major differences are in the polishing of the plate and use of compounds of bromine, chlorine, and iodine with lime as an accelerant.WorldCat locates a single copy of this first edition at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France. There is a copy dated 1849 at the Bibliotheque de Geneve, and five copies of an 1850 second edition. Roosens and Salue No. 6511.

        Account of a new anaesthetic agent, substitute for sulphuric ether in surgery and midwifery

      Samuel Highley, Edinburgh: Sutherland and Knox; London 1847 - Unbound as issued. Title and last 4 leaves detached with trace of thread remaining. Upper blank corner of last leaf torn away and occasional slight soiling. Presentation copy by Simpson to Dr. J.V.C. Smith, editor of the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal. Preserved in a morocco-backed slipcase. First edition, second issue, published two or three days after the first. In this pamphlet, Simpson (1811-70), professor of midwifery at the University of Edinburgh, described the advantages of chloroform over ether and cited several cases where it had been used successfully. He was the first to appreciate the value of chloroform as an anesthetic, having used it in an obstetrical case on November 8, 1847, when he administered it to a woman with a previous history of difficult labor; the baby was born without complications about twenty-five minutes after the first inhalation. Despite Simpson's success with chloroform, he encountered a great deal of opposition from conservative doctors and clergymen. The medical establishment did finally accept his efforts when Queen Victoria chose to take chloroform for the birth of Prince Leopold in 1853.The first printing of Simpson's pamphlet bears a postscript dated November 12, 1847. This second printing bears a postscript dated three days later and has an additional paragraph at the end. Simpson most likely received this copy directly following its printing, as it is postmarked November 19. For a complete discussion of the differences between the two printings, see Fulton and Stanton. Both printings are extremely rare.On the last blank page is Dr. Smith's address in the author's hand, with postmarks dated November 19th at Edinburgh and November 21st at Liverpool. Simpson apparently mailed the pamphlet to Smith without an envelope, addressing it on the blank verso of the last leaf. The Boston Medical and Surgical Journal first mentioned Simpson's discovery in its issue of December 29, 1847, and acknowledged receipt of Simpson's pamphlet in its issue of January 5, 1848. It was in this same periodical, in 1846, that Bigelow's announcement of the discovery of sulfuric ether as a surgical anaesthetic was made. FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT, SECOND EDITION (POSTMARKED A FEW DAYS LATER THAN THE FIRST.

        Unpublished Manuscript Journal Describing Slavery and Indians in New York State, by a German Economic Refugee.

      New York State: Albany, New York City: 1947-48, 1847. Manuscript fair journal of German geographer and professor Herr Schmidtbleicher of Württemberg, comprising an eloquent and substantial description of colonial America including economy, trade, customs, and geography observed in New York State as he sought to settle in the land of opportunity. His voyage abroad and reconnaissance of New York spanned some nine to ten months, inclusively. This journal was penned upon his return in April 1848. Text is written in uncommon German handwriting known as Kurrent or Kurrentschrift, a now obsolete style which was based on late medieval cursive writing. 8vo. 245 pages, a two part work possibly intended for publication. Half calf over black paper boards, four raised bands to spine, front titled in manuscript "My Journey and Fortune to North America, 1848". Volume measures 17,5 x 22 cm. Wear to boards, loss to spine, otherwise in very good condition, internally sound, a pleasing and entertaining volume. An invaluable and most uncommon primary source account of New York state, from the unique perspective of a an astute and learned man making careful and detailed observations of the country, its politics, economy, and its inhabitants, with the intention to create for himself a better life. His firsthand impressions speak not only about the American ways of life, but also about the integration of impoverished German immigrants, making for an eye-opening and candid description of life in America before the Civil War. As early as the 1820s Germans began immigrating to the United States, seeking political and religious freedom, as well as economic opportunities greater than Europe could then offer. In 1848, when the German Revolutions erupted, Germans became the largest immigrant group to the United States, outnumbering even the Irish. Many Germans settlers were farmers, some of whom developed innovative techniques such as crop rotation and soil conservation. Urban center settlers pursued education, established industrial enterprises, and assimilated into the middle and upper classes of American society. The writer was a geographer and a teacher, calling himself an 'economic refugee' and speaking rather frankly on the political situation in his homeland, and on the severe depression now known as the Hungry Forties which caused long suffering to the lower classes by halting industrial expansion and aggravating urban unemployment. Having a cousin who had previously settled in Albany, New York, Schmidtbleicher began his quest for opportunity and fortune there also. Frequent annotations and additions, a succinct auto-biographical introduction, a detailed and itemized assessment of America, and the title itself, suggest that the writer may have thought to publish the work. The title is as follows: "Aus der Schule in die Schule, oder Meine erlebten Fata auf einer Reise nach, in und aus Amerika; Humoristisch erzählt von einem würtembergischen Schullehrer zur Warnung und Belehrung für Auswanderungslustige." [From School to School, or My Firsthand Experiences While Travelling To, In, and Out of America Recounted Humoristically by a Wurtemberg Teacher; with Advice and Instructions for Emigration.] "Meine Amerikanische Reise und mein Schicksal" [My Trip to America and My Destiny] The first part of this work is a most captivating travellogue, 140 pages in manuscript, describing personal encounters and firsthand observations from the unique perspective of a would-be expatriate seeking to settle in America. The writer begins with a summary of the political and economic turmoil spreading across Europe and devastating the German States, followed by a mention of his own ambition and reason for fleeing to America. Evidently a young man, departing from his parents' home with their consent to find a better life, his adventure begins in June 1847, with 400 florin in his pocket. Following a farewell gathering on the 3rd of the month, he describes overland travels, staying at Stuttgart, Ludwigsburg, and Heilbronn where he embarked a steamship on the Neckar River. Continuing with river travel, from Düsseldorf he cruises the Rhine to enter the Netherlands. From Rotterdam on 24 June, his voyage to New York finally begins. Sixty-one (61) pages of this section are devoted to his time in America. With the aim of establishing a profession as a schoolmaster, as well as a teaching piano, believing these to be better paying in America than in Germany, he travels to several cities. Along his travels he learns about American culture and picks up on the language, as we see by his jottings of the typical greetings, some vocabulary, and a reference to "Yankee Doodle," a well-known Anglo-American song originating from the Seven Years' War. Travelling as a deck passenger, Schmidtbleicher embarks a Mexican steamboat on the Hudson River, bound for Albany. He describes the interior in great detail, including a magnificent gallery, and the layout of passenger sleeping quarters partitioned into sections for male passengers, divorced women, the captain and his attendants. Alas, his ticket afforded him but an unmarked spot on the deck for sleeping, his sack of belongings serving as a pillow. Albany, Greenbusch, and the beautiful scenery between them, he describes as "einem wahren Paradiese", a "true paradise." Excerpts further describing Albany: "Die Stadt Albany zählt gegen 30.000 Ein-wohner, hat schöne breite, theil weise mit Alleen besetzte Straßen, viele große, von Backsteinen hie und da auch von weißen Marmor ausgeführte Häuser, sehr viele Fabriken und bedeutenden Handel, wobei ihr eine Lage an Hudson und Ausgang des Erie-Canals sehr günstig ist.... das Vieh in der ganzen Stadt freien Lauf hat... In dieser Stadt sah ich auch die ersten Indianer welche mit Pelzen, Schuhen und sonstigen verschiedenen, theilweise von ihnen ver fertigten Sachen handelten... Schwarze hatte es wie fast überall eine große Zahl. Es genügt, diese Menschen anzusehen um sich zu überzeugen, daß die Weißen eine edlere, höher begabte Rasse sind." [The city of Albany has 30,000 inhabitants, and has broad, partly avenue-lined streets, many large houses, some made of white marble, some made of bricks, and a great many factories and important trades, their locations on the Hudson and the exit of the Erie canal are most favorable... cattle roam freely throughout the city... I also saw the First Indians, trading furs, shoes, and other various handcrafted items ... The Black are present in large numbers.... to observe them... the Whites are a nobler and more gifted race.] After a 14 day stay with his cousin in Albany, he travels some 110 miles by rail to the city of Rome. There he visited a clergyman who was the former schoolmaster, who in turn introduced him to the German immigrant community. Excited to finally see firsthand the life of Germans in North America, Schmidtbleicher was somewhat dismayed, writing, "Sie wohnten meistens in den Vorstädten in elenden Bretter-oder Blockhütten. " [They lived mostly in the suburbs in miserable boarding huts]. From there he ventures to Rochester, which he describes as a very pleasant and fertile area, with lush valleys and abundant forests. Again he is struck by the "bright and bluish color" of the rivers and streams of America, comparing them to the yellow waters of Europe. Next stop Buffalo City, where he met more Germans but found no opportunity in his field. Hence he returned to Rome, to devise a new plan, to contemplate his future, to stay in America or return to Germany. "Es war mir so hell und klar ... daß wenn ich noch länger in Amerika bliebe, ich dennoch nicht mein ganzes Leben dort zuzubringen wünschte" [It was so clear to me ... that if I stayed longer in America, I would not want to spend my whole life there.] In his contemplations he remembers Springfield: "... zählt ungefähr 20,000 Einwohner und war die erste Stadt, die ich gesehen.und nicht ringsum Vorstädte von Bretterhäusern und Blockhütten hatte, da die Einwanderer sich hier nicht ansiedeln können. Das Terrain des ganzen Staates ist voller großer und kleiner Steine, so daß der Ackerbau nicht sehr stark betrieben werden kann... Ich ging daher zurück auf die Office und fragte nach dem Preis. Der billigste Platz kostete nun 70 Doll... Allein so lange ich noch die nöthigen Mittel hinreichend in den Händen hätte, wolle ich meine Heimreise unternehmen, anderenfalls könnte es mir gehen wie ihm... ich werde, zurückgekehrt imein Vaterland, einen sehr geduldigen Schulmeister geben." [Springfield... about 20,000 inhabitants... was the first city I had seen, and it was not surrounded by suburbs of wooden houses and blockhouses as the immigrants can not settle here. The terrain of the whole state is full of large and small stones, so much so that agriculture is not easy... I returned to the office and asked about the price. The cheapest place cost 70 Dollars... As I still had sufficient resources in hand, I would undertake my journey home, otherwise I might be like them... I will return to my fatherland and be a very patient schoolmaster.] Unexpectedly, his time in America stirred in him a renewed positive outlook toward the life he had in his homeland, and a purposeful hope in the new German Ministry. An annotation here reads, "Geschrieben im April 1848" [Written in April 1848] "Amerika Wie Es Ist" [America As It Is] A candid reveal - the second part of the volume, some ninety-one (91) pages, comprises Herr Schmidtbleicher's intellectual assessment of America, beginning with the virtues which patriotic Americans hold dear, then and now, such as freedom, equality, human rights laws, and capitalism, and ending with issues that persist still today, such as racial prejudices. Although harshly critiquing the effectiveness of some of the ideals, he further comments on multi-culturalism, religion, the precarious state of trade, on the manners and customs of the American people, military and battle, and so forth. Following are a few of his observations: New York's trade, he recollects, was largely operating on a labor-exchange and barter system, which at the time the German immigrants were indeed endeavouring to establish on a large scale. Arriving to America in a state of poverty, but hopeful and industrious, their aim was to have a central exchange bank to connect individual producers and tradesmen, this in lieu of using minted currency which they had little of. German immigrants contributed greatly to the cooperative movement, successfully operating as such in seven cities. In spite of the German states of Europe being in a state of depression and economic upheaval, he believes that trade there was still more stable than that of New York. Testifying to the significance of labour and goods as currency in New York State in the mid-nineteenth century, Schmidtbleicher writes, "In den inneren Staaten ist die klingende Münze sehr rar, daher sucht jeder den anderen durch Waaren, Arbeit oder Anweisung auf einen dritten zu bezahlen. Dieses Tauschverhältnis geht durch alle Geschäfte durch; wer sich dazu nicht bequemen will erhält keine Aufträge." [In the inner states, coin is very scarce, so everyone seeks to pay the other by means of goods, labor, or instruction. This exchange relationship exists in all transactions; If you do not want to do this, you will not make sales.] He describes slavery over 4 pages, beginning as follows, "Sklaverei... Unter den 26 Staaten der Union sind 12, in welchen vermöge der Constitution die Sklaverei gesetzlich erlaubt ist, weshalb man sie Sklavenstaaten nennt. Sie bilden den Süden und Südwesten der vereinigten Staaten. Der Sklave ist zwar Eigenthum seines Herrn so gut wie jede andere Sache, allein da der Preis eines gesunden, kräftigen in seinen besten Jahren stehenden männlichen Negers 800-1000 Dollars, der einer Negerin 4-600 Dollars ist, und so im Verhältnis nach Alter und Brauchbarkeit, so folgt schon daraus, daß es im unmittelbarsten Interesse des Eigenthümers liegt, dem Sklaven nicht mehr zu zumuthen, als er ertragen kann, auch viel weniger ihn muthwillig und ohne Ursache zu schlagen und arbeitsunfähig zu machen." [Slavery ... Among the twenty-six States of the Union, there are 12 whose constitution permits slavery... They form the south and south-west of the United States. The slave is, indeed, the property of his master, as good as any other cause, but the price of a healthy, strong male negro standing in his best years, 800-1,000 dollars, a negro 4-600 dollars. And so, in proportion to age and usefulness, it stands to reason that it is in the best interest of the owner not to subject the slave any more than he can bear, and not to beat him without cause, rendering him incapable of working.] Most empathically, the foreigner summarizes the plight of the First Nations people over 5 pages, "Amerikaner und Indianer: Die Abkömmlimnge der englisch redenden Einwanderer nennen sich Amerikaner. Daß die Indianer eigentlich die Ureinwohner des Landes und die eigentlichen Amerikaner sind, die aus ihrem Eigenthum vertrieben und mit Sünden hinausgesetzt wurden, davon wollen die jetzigen Amerikaner nichts hören, der Indianer ist ihnen ein elendes Geschöpf, das man in seinen restlichen Prairien noch so lange leben läßt, als es ihrer Gnade und Weisheit für gut dünkt. Westlich von den Staaten Arkansas, Missouri und Iowa sind ihnen ihre neuen Wohnsitze angewiesen. Man will durchaus keine Indianer mehr zwischen den Weißen dulden obgleich manche Stämme, die bis vor wenigen Jahren in einzelnen Theilen von Georgia, Alabama u. Tenesse wohnten, auf gleicher Stufe der Bildung und Kultur standen, wie ihre weißen Nachbarn..." [Americans and Indians: The descendants of English-speaking immigrants are called Americans. That the Indians are in fact the native inhabitants of the country, and the true Americans, who have been expelled from their property and set aside with sins, the present Americans do not want to hear of it. To them, the Indians are a miserable creature remaining in their prairies... West of the states of Arkansas, Missouri and Iowa, their new residences are dependent on them. There seems to no longer be any tolerance between the Indians and the whites, although many tribes, who until a few years ago lived in individual parts of Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee, and were at the same level of education and culture as their white neighbors...] Trivial observations disperse these salient subject matters, with remarks on urban apartment dwelling, traditional furniture such as rocking chairs, tobacco, bakeries, banking, local birds and fish, an infestation of mosquitos, a "most fashionable dance in 1845," and the varying geographical differences between forest regions and prairie lands. Of the climate, he states that America has essentially only two seasons, (based solely on his experience in New York State), however, in a short period of time one can be burnt by the heat and frozen from the cold, "kann man zugleich von der Hitze verbrannt werden und von der Kälte erfrieren." He appreciates that the cities offer daily butchered meat, but states that the preparation of food is inferior to German cuisine, partly owing to the limited variety of produce grown, and partly owing to the style of cooking. The popular drinks, he finds, are whiskey, brandy or cognac, America in general lacking in the production of fresh wine. He also comments on yellow fever epidemics in New Orleans, and how the population decreased rapidly in the spring time as people feared death in the summer, and they too emigrated to states such as New York. Interestingly, in the year 1847, when he was in New York, the disease caused over 2300 deaths in New Orleans, by far the most recorded since 1819, and holding the record until 1853. Finally, he concludes his work with advice for Germans contemplating immigration to America, "Unter den deutschen Auswanderern sind bekanntlich so viele arme Leute, die in der Hoffnung leben, in Amerika das Geld auf den Straßen zu finden und bald reiche Herren zu werden. Allein dort angekommen, bringen sie's selten weiter als zum Tagelöhner und dies auch nicht immer ohne Schwierigkeit, weil in den amerikanischen Städten immer mehr solcher Leute sind als vorräthige Arbeiter... Ein großer Theil der (früheren hauptsächlich) Auswanderer sind Verbrecher, arme verworfene Sünder... Wer aber auswandert aus Mißmuth über die herrschenden politischen Zustände oder in der Hoffnung, freie ökonomische Ver hältnisse besser zu gestalten, wird in der Regel seine Erwartungen nicht befriedigt finden! ... mein Rath dahin, lieber in Deutschland zu bleiben..." [Among the German emigrants, there are so many poor people who live in the hope of finding the money in the streets of America, and of soon becoming wealthy masters. Once they have arrive, they seldom become more than a day-laborer, and this is not always without difficulty, because in the American cities there are more and more workers. A great part of the emigrants are criminals, poor rejected sinners (more so, formerly). For them there is unfortunately no more salvation, and the fatherland need not weep... But those who emigrate out of disgust over the prevailing political conditions, or in the hopes of finding wealth and freedom, will generally not meet their expectations! My advice to stay in Germany...] At the time of the writer's journey to America, New York City saw increased Irish immigration with the Great Irish Famine, as well as German immigration due to the Revolutions of 1848 - 1849. The Germans were skilled laborers and craftsmen who settled in a new neighborhood named "Kleindeutschland" (Little Germany) and opened many shops where they worked as artisans. Albany, then the 9th largest urban place in the nation, was a center of transportation, its steamboat line from New York City being the first successful enterprise of its kind. Albany also received many German immigrants, whom, much to the chagrin of some staunch Anglo-Americans, brought with them their passion for beer, singing, festive celebrations, and camaraderie. Several German breweries, both large and small, were established in Albany. John F. Hedrick founded the first large German Lager Bier brewery, the Hedrick Brewing Company in 1852. Also in Albany, in 1848, the cornerstone of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is laid at the corner of Madison Avenue and Eagle Street and the railroad to New York is completed. On August 17 "The Great Fire" burns 600 buildings over 37 acres (150,000 m2) from Maiden Lane in the north to Hudson Avenue to the south..

        14 FIRST EDITIONS

      London or Boston, 1847-78. FIRST EDITIONS. This is an excellent selection of the more substantial poetry and prose publications by John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-92), attractively presented and well protected in their bespoke clamshell boxes. The titles here are: "The Supernaturalism of New England" (1847); "Leaves from Margaret Smith's Journal in the Province of Massachusetts Bay" (1849); "Old Portraits and Modern Sketches" (1850); "Literary Recreations and Miscellanies" (1854); "The Panorama, and Other Poems" (1856); "Home Ballads and Poems" (1860); "The Patience of Hope" (1862); "In War Time and Other Poems" (1864); "The Tent on the Beach and Other Poems" (1867); "Among the Hills and Other Poems" (1869); "Miriam and Other Poems" (1871); "The Pennsylvania Pilgrim, and Other Poems" (1872); "Hazel-Blossoms" (1875); and "The Vision of Echard and Other Poems" (1878). A Quaker who edited a number of newspapers and spent time as a Massachusetts legislator, Whittier invested as much passion in his abolitionist campaigning as he did in his poetry. But in Day's words, "Whittier won his place in New England literary circles by his genuine poetic talent and his felicity in detailing the homey aspects of New England life. Along with Thoreau, he favored life in the country, and celebrated his rural environment in much of his poetry. . . . The topical poetry that established his fame has lost much of its pertinency, but the wholesome simplicity and convincing vitality of his rural lyrics still attract 20th century readers." Besides a group of works by an important American poet, the present item represents, especially for this catalogue, an assemblage of unusually well-preserved publisher's cloth bindings, each in an attractive case made by a long-lived name in English binding. The London bindery of William Root & Son consistently turned out excellent work, both on fine bindings and on trade bindings of multi-volume sets. Packer lists the firm in business in Red Lion Square in 1899-1901, and the December 1942 issue of "The Rotarian" notes with regret that Root had been bombed out of their premises on Paternoster Row during the 1941 Blitz.. Octavos of varying sizes. 14 FIRST EDITIONS. Publisher's blind-stamped cloth, (later) glassine dust wrappers, TWO VOLUMES UNOPENED. In excellent matching burgundy morocco-backed clamshell boxes by W. Root & Son, backs with raised bands, gilt compartments with central floral sprig and gilt titling, marbled lining. Half the spines a little sunned, occasional small spots or dents to boards, but THE ORIGINAL BINDINGS ESSENTIALLY UNWORN, UNUSUALLY CLEAN, AND WITH THEIR EMBOSSED DECORATION ESPECIALLY SHARP. Leaves a shade less than bright because of paper stock, but very clean, with only isolated trivial spots; overall A VERY FINE GROUP, especially well preserved in their attractive boxes.

Juli 1843 bis zum September 1944 im Verlag J. J. Weber in Leipzig. Verleger und Herausgeber war Johann Jacob Weber. Mitbegründer, technischer Leiter und Verbindungsmann zu den Holzschnittkünstlern in Leipzig und Berlin war von 1843 bis 1845 der Leipziger Buchhändler und Verleger Carl Berendt Lorck. Die Zeitschrift war das „Flaggschiff" des Unternehmens und kann zugleich als Urmutter aller späteren „Bilderblätter" angesehen werden. Zudem war diese neue Art Zeitschrift in Bezug auf die für solch kostspielige Experimente eher ungünstige Zeit ein wagemutiger, aber erfolgreicher Versuch, der sich in hervorragenden Verkaufserfolg entwickelte. Die Technik der Holzstich-Illustrationen für damalige Verhältnisse zur Perfektion zu entwickeln, war für den Verleger J. J. Weber im Jahr 1843 der eigentliche Anreiz zur Gründung einer illustrierten Zeitschrift. Im Laufe der folgenden Jahre gliederte er ein xylographisches Atelier an, das 1849 bis 1857 von Robert Kretschmer, 1857 bis 1860 von dem Maler Ernst Hartmann aus Berlin, 1860 bis 1870 von dem Maler Anton Muttenthaler aus München und 1870 bis 1901 von Fritz Waibler geleitet wurde. Ihr enormer Einsatz an Bildern und Bildreportagen, die durch den Einsatz eigener Bildkorrespondenten möglich wurde, macht die Illustrirte Zeitung durch ihre lange Laufzeit von einem Jahrhundert zu einer wichtigen Quelle an Materialien zur Geschichte und Kultur, sowie der Politik und des Alltagslebens. Sie bietet damit ein einmaliges Bildarchiv mit über 300.000 Illustrationen, die eindrucksvoll Berichte über das zeitgenössische politische, wissenschaftliche, kulturelle und literarische Leben dieser Zeit liefern. Mit der in der Illustrirten Zeitung erstmals eingeführten Eingliederung des Bildes in die Textseite erhöhte sich die Aussagekraft der bisher nur sprachlich vermittelten Inhalte oder Informationen." / "Johann Jacob Weber (* 3. April 1803 in Basel; † 16. März 1880 in Leipzig) war ein deutscher Buchhändler und Verleger sowie Begründer des Verlagshauses J. J. Weber in Leipzig. 1843 gründete er gemeinsam mit Carl Berendt Lorck die Illustrirte Zeitung, das erste illustrierte Wochenblatt Deutschlands, und revolutionierte damit die Wahrnehmung der Welt. Noch heute prägen die Bildfolgen zunächst der Stahlstiche und später der Holzstiche in seiner llustrirten Zeitung unsere Vorstellungen von der „guten alten Zeit".

        THE PICTURESQUE AND POPULAR HISTORY OF ENGLAND (In the original parts consisting of 6 parts in 6 volumes)

      London: David Bogue, 1847.. 1847.. Fair. - Octavo, 7-1/2 inches high by 5 inches wide. Softcovers. Six parts, each bound in pictorial tan wraps titled with an illustration of knights gathered around their seated king framed by trees as crowds line the street leading to the castle pictured in the background. Text, consisting of "Advertisement" for the series, is printed on the back cover of each volume. The front cover of the first volume is detached with dark tape stains along the left edge and to the remnants of the spine. The covers are darkened with some creases and chips to the edges and the spines are chipped. The top corner of the last book's rear cover has been repaired with tape. 363, [i] & xx consecutively numbered pages. Each part is illustrated with 2 full-page engraved plates for a total of 12 plates. A bookplate is mounted inside the front cover of the first book. There is dampstaining to the plates which illustrate each volume and some occasional pencil marks and highlights. The parts are laid together in a plain green cloth chemise and housed in a later green cloth slipcase titled in gilt on the spine and identified as "Original Parts". <p>RARE. Apart from a copy in the Duke University Library bound without the titled front covers we have been unable to locate any other existing copy, either bound or in the original parts.<p>The sixth part ends with the Anglo- Saxons and the Battle of Hastings.<p>Printed by T.C. Savill at 4, Chandos Street, for David Bogue.<p>"There has long been an outcty amongst the graver class of critics, that historical novels are a great evil, inasmuch as they misrepresent admitted facts: yet in spite of this denouncement, they are still written and read, while history itself is comparatively neglected.... Nor is the reason at all difficult to comprehend; the dry, hard, matter-of-fact style which the generality of historical writers consider it necessary to adopt, has, to young and imaginative minds, somewhat of a forbidding appearance.... This evil can only be remedied by bringing the light and popular style in which these works are composed to bear upon history,-- to describe its important truths in a more picturesque and familiar manner,-- to bring out the actors and the scenery more boldly before the eye of the reader,-- to throw more of a poetical spirit into the narrative,-- and to give it all the fascination of fiction, without altering a single recorded truth...." [Quoted from the "Advertisement" printed on the rear cover of each part].<p>Critics appear to have differed in their opinion of Thomas Miller's stated aim. The Church of England Quarterly Review, Vol. 21 for the year 1847, states that "We may add that the author appears to have selected the safest authorities for his facts, and has thrown over the dryness of history the grace, without the exaggeration, of poetry. This work is liberally embellished--two engravings to the number-- and the whole affair, as regards typography and arrangement, worthy of the originality of the undertaking."<p>Commenting on the author's "Advertisement", the June 5th, 1847 edition of "The Spectator" proclaims "If this were done sparingly and with original knowledge under the guidance of a severe taste, life and variety might be given to a work, without losing sight of its nature; which is recorded history, not imaginary description of fluent rethoric. Indeed, when they thought the case required it, Sanest, Livy, Arnold, and other historians have fulfilled Mr. Miller's theory as a matter of course. In his own development of it, he seems to us more likely to substitute fanciful additions and a dreamy sort of reverie, consisting half of imagined facts and half of mere opinions, than to rise to the height he rums at...."<p>An advertisement in the January 1, 1847 "Publishers' circular and booksellers' record" states that the finished work will "form three handsome volumes". Nonetheless, it may well be that these first six parts were all that were published.
