Jedenfalls darf man mit Sicherheit annehmen, daß die aufgrund persönlicher Anschauung entstandenen Lithographien in ihrer präzisen Treffsicherheit und ihrer dokumentarischen Genauigkeit jeden ansprechen mußten, der das Manöver aktiv oder passiv miterlebt hatte.

        Manuscript Journal of First Mate on the Brig Hyder Ali sailing from New York to Montevideo, Uruguay 1847-1848

      Quarto. Quarter calf and marbled paper covered boards with blank leaves. Front board largely detached (hanging by a thread), pages modestly toned, a few page corners dogearred, but good or better. Ownership signature of "Edmund Jones, Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island. Journal. Nov. 1st, 1847 On board the Brig Hyder Ali. Geo. W. Wetherill, Master." Jones has used all 124 of the blank leaves to meticulously record the events of a journey carrying lumber from New York to Montevideo, in a reasonably legible hand. He notes his efforts to gain a berth, and then reports the weather, sailing information, and location, as well as the fishing. The Hyder Ali was caught up in a conflict between Argentina and Uruguay, and are for a while kept from their destination by a blockade, and in their turn are boarded by U.S., French, and British warships. Additionally they are fired upon and hit by cannon from Argentine shore batteries. Caught in Montevideo for a time, he provides a good description of the inhabitants, the city, and the docks. At the conclusion of the journal Jones notes the entire crew's roster, noting that one crew member was struck by a boom, knocked over board, and drowned.Our research indicates that Edmund Jones (1824-1900) never married, he was a seaman or mate on "several ocean going vessels," he lived for several years in the silver mining district of Montana, returned to New York, and died of pneumonia at Cold Spring Harbor. Apparently, he left his journal behind when he went west, and another owner's name, "Frank Long" appears, along with a note appended on the last leaf that Long has been contracted to build a blacksmith shop in Oyster Bay. A lively, better than usual, sailor's journal. .

        Greens grosser Luftballon im Lande der Antipoden

      Vienna: 'Bureau de Theaterzeitung', 1847. Engraved sheet measuring 238 x 308 mm; single crease, some rubbing, small closed marginal tears; good overall. Rare and colourful caricature set in an imagined antipodes. This satirical Austrian engraving parodies the ambition of Charles Green, the great British balloonist, to cross the Atlantic, here showing his alarming arrival in the antipodes.Charles Green (1785-1870) was the greatest British aviator of the nineteenth-century, an innovator in hot-air ballooning who made over 500 ascents over the course of his career. From 1840 onwards he fermented ambitious plans to cross the Atlantic by balloon but was never able to bring them to fruition. Green's bold intention was the focus of parody and caustic wit, as exemplified by this satirical cartoon where he lands in the antipodes amongst indigenous figures deployed amidst a mock society function.

        BATTLE OF CERRO GORDO APRIL 17TH & 18TH 1847 FROM SURVEYS MADE BY MAJOR TURNBULL & CAPT. McCLELLAN. TOPL. ENGS. DRAWN BY CAPT. McCLELLAN.

      [Washington, D.C. 1847]. - Engraved map, 12 1/2 x 18 1/2 inches, with hand-coloring, on a 19 1/2 x 23 3/4 inch sheet. Old folds. Small splits at four cross-folds. Foxing. Good. A scarce and detailed map of the Battle of Cerro Gordo, one of the important battles of the Mexican-American War. General Winfield Scott's victory at Cerro Gordo, over a much larger force commanded by Santa Anna, allowed the Americans to move closer to Mexico City. The map shows the location of the Mexican battery at the pass, as well as an additional Mexican battery of seventeen guns. Most dynamically, it shows the location of several American forces, including those commanded by Shields, Riley, Twiggs, Worth, and Pillow, as well as the location of the American dragoons and light artillery. A printed note below the map records that Scott commanded some 8325 men, while Santa Anna had twice that under his command. A further note records a total of sixty-three American killed, and 367 wounded. The Mexican forces took some 1,000 in killed and wounded. The map was drawn by George B. McClellan, then a captain under Winfield Scott and a participant in the battle; some fifteen years before he achieved notoriety as a commander in the Civil War, and as the Democratic nominee for President in 1864.

        Ornamental Map of the United States and Mexico. 1847.

      Phelps, Ensign and Thayer, New York 1847 - A hand-colored map with image area measuring 72 cm x 54 cm, with black scroll rods at top and lower edges. Paper backed by linen with edge wear and chips, darker glued areas from the backing, toning, and browning of the lower edge, with one area rubbed through at the top of the Washington portrait. Very good condition considering the cheap paper, which generally did not hold up well on these maps. The "Phelps Ornamental Map of the United States and Mexico" was published to capitalize on Mexican War interest and was reprinted with variations many times to keep up with progressions in the war. The illustrations appear to be from woodcuts. The vignettes at the top are of Cortez, Washington, and Montezuma, with Zachary Taylor and Santa Anna pictured below. The informational boxes include Distances in Mexico, Population of the Republic of Mexico, Oregon, New Mexico and the Californias, Mexico and its conquest, and a Chronological and Statistical View of the United States. The cartography takes some liberties, and the 1847 US-Mexican border is put roughly from the Gila River over to the Rio Grande. Wheat Gold 36. Wheat 551. ; Color Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall

        TEMPLE OF EDFOU, ANCIENT APPOLINOPOLOS. UPPER EGYPT [A Wide Complete View of the Temple, Being an Original Hand-Coloured Lithograph From] THE HOLY LAND, SYRIA, IDUMEA, ARABIA, EGYPT AND NUBIA

      London F.G. Moon and Co. 1847 - From the Standard Folio First Edition, limited to 500 sets only. A single original hand-coloured lithographic plate drawn on stone by Louis Haghe after David Roberts' paintings done on location in 1838. Printed on a single folio sheet 23" x 17.5", the captioned image, is 19.25" x 13", now presented in cream mounting boards 30" x 24" glazed behind clear mylar. Beautifully hand-coloured to the highest standards of the time. An example in excellent condition, clean, fresh, beautifully preserved. FROM One of the most desirable of all travel and COLOURplate books. This is an especially attractive plate showing one of the best preserved temples in Egypt. The temple, dedicated to the falcon god Horus, was built in the Ptolemaic period between 237 and 57 BC. The temple is located on the west bank of the Nile in the city of Edfu which was known in Greco-Roman times as Apollonopolis Magna, after the chief god Horus-Apollo. The temple of Edfu is the largest temple dedicated to Horus. We have a good number of impressive images from the Standard Folio Edition of this classic work available for purchase. As well as many views of Egypt there are also views available of Tyre, Nubia, Petra, Sinai, the Jordan, Sidon and Baalbec. Please inquire for further details. In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast.that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest."

        MAZATLAN, WAS TAKEN BY THE U.S. PACIFIC SQUADRON, COMMODORE WM. BRANFORD SHUBRICK, NOV. 12th, 1847 [manuscript caption title]

      [N.p., 1847. Some flaking of the blue paint in the water. 4 1/2-inch horizontal closed tear in right portion of the image. Overall, very good. Matted, and in a modern frame. A detailed, colorful, and accomplished painting of the American capture of Mazatlán during the Mexican-American War. William H. Meyers, a gunner on board the U.S.S. Dale, produced some of the most significant artwork illustrating the fighting in California and on the west coast of Mexico. A collection of his drawings, owned by Franklin Roosevelt, was published in 1939. The present work was not a part of that collection but is clearly part of the same series. Original artwork from the Mexican-American War is rarely available. In the preface to the 1939 publication of the Meyers sketchbook that he owned, Roosevelt wrote: "By means of Meyers' realistic sketches...we are enabled to follow the epic naval conquest of California with an understanding which has heretofore been impossible. He participated in many of the scenes depicted, and for the others had the privilege of discussion with eye- witnesses. There seems to have been no facile pen among the handful of bold, hard-bitten husky sailors, marines, soldiers and frontiersmen who won that empire for us. No doubt pen and paper were scarce in that primitive region. Complicated war operations scattered through a thousand miles of virgin coast and country gave little opportunity for writing or sketching. Thus the very dearth of adequate contemporary literature adds much to the historical value of Gunner Meyers' brush." The capture of Mazatlán, on the west coast of Mexico, was an important American victory during the Mexican- American War. The most active Mexican port on the West Coast, Mazatlán was strategically important as an information link to the East Coast, and was a major supply base for Mexican forces. The port was captured by naval forces led by Commodore William Shubrick commanding his ship, Independence, assisted by the United States ships Congress and Cyane. At the time that Mazatlán was captured, the U.S.S. Dale, on which William Meyers served, was patrolling off the coast of Guaymas, some 560 miles to the north. As Roosevelt noted, for the scenes that Meyers did not witness personally (such as this one), he relied on eyewitness testimony for his paintings. This painting is dominated by Shubrick's flagship, the Independence, with a number of smaller rowboats behind it. The buildings and hills of Mazatlán stretch the length of the image beyond the ship, and a number of individuals can be seen along the beach and on the waterfront. Several of the buildings fly various flags, demonstrating the importance of Mazatlán as a port. William H. Meyers (b. 1815) went to sea aboard a trading vessel to the West Indies in 1838 and also worked as a civilian in ordinance at the Washington Navy Yard. In 1841 he joined the United States Navy as a gunner, and was assigned to the U.S.S. Cyane. He served under Commodore Thomas Ap Catesby Jones, taking part in the presumptive American seizure of Monterey in 1842. During the Mexican-American War, Meyers served as gunner on the U.S.S. Dale, and participated in many naval and land battles on the coast of Mexico and California. Due to ill health Meyers resigned from the Navy in 1848, and worked at the naval laboratory in Washington, DC. Meyers was an untrained but accomplished and prolific artist and he made a number of sketches and paintings during his career of naval service in the 1840s. Franklin Roosevelt owned one of Meyers' original sketchbooks, containing fifty-four drawings of scenes during the Mexican-American War. Twenty-eight of those sketches were published by Random House in 1939 in a volume printed by the Grabhorn Press in an edition of 1000 copies, and with an introduction by Roosevelt and a historical narrative by Captain Dudley W. Knox. Roosevelt's sketchbook is part of the collection at the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Presidential Library in Hyde Park, New York. Meyers also made sketches of his 1841-44 cruise in the Pacific aboard the U.S.S. Cyane, several of which were published in 1955 in a volume also printed by the Grabhorn Press. The Bancroft Library at the University of California owns a painting by Meyers of "The Taking of Monterey on October 20, 1842," created during Meyers' service on the Cyane. The present view of Mazatlán being taken by the U.S. Pacific Squadron in 1847 was part of an exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1976. An attractive painting of an important American naval victory during the Mexican-American War.

        Letter, signed ("Metternich") to Viscount Ponsonby enclosing a warrant to allow the British sloop "Arab" to enforce the terms of the Treaty of London of 20 December, 1841, between Great Britain, Prussia, France, Austia, and Russia, to suppress the slave trade

      [Vienna], 1847. 1-/2 pages on rectos of single bifolium. In French. 1 vols. Folio. Docketed at top of firt page "transmit warrant for the 'Arab'". Creased at top, small, semi-circular tear through both leaves (text unaffected), minor soiling; overall, very good. 1-/2 pages on rectos of single bifolium. In French. 1 vols. Folio. Enforcing the Ban on the Slave Trade. The Treaty of London of 20 December, 1841, the so-called "Quintuple Treaty" between the 5 major powers, was the first major international agreement to abolish the slave trade. The agreement allowed a squadron of designated ships of the Royal Navy, with certain powers of search and seizure, to patrol the coast of Africa, Each of the ships of the Royal Navy had to be approved, however, with an official warrant, by the signatory nations. The present document transmits such a warrant from Austria for the English sloop "Arab", under the command of William Morris. Viscount Ponsonby (c.1770-1855) was a career diplomat who, despite the fact that, according to the ODNB, "his behaviour as an ambassador sometimes embarrassed the government" (for numerous affairs), he was appointed to Vienna as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, serving from 1846 to 1850. Metternich, of course has been called the greatest diplomat of the 19th century.

        MEDINET ABOU, THEBES [A View of The Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu; Being an Original Hand-Coloured Lithograph From] THE HOLY LAND, SYRIA, IDUMEA, ARABIA, EGYPT AND NUBIA

      London F.G. Moon and Co. 1847 - From the Standard Folio First Edition, limited to 500 sets only. A single original hand-coloured lithographic plate drawn on stone by Louis Haghe after David Roberts' paintings done on location in 1832. Printed on a single folio sheet 23.5" x 16", the captioned image, is 19" x 13", now presented in cream mounting boards 30" x 24" glazed behind clear mylar. Beautifully hand-coloured to the highest standards of the time. An example in excellent condition, clean, fresh, beautifully preserved. FROM One of the most desirable of all travel and COLOURplate books. This is an attractive image inside the courtyard of the Mortuary Temple Medinet Abou, known for having over 7000 square meters of relatively well preserved decorated wall reliefs. Ruined columns and sand fill the courtyard and a single visitor gives scale to the surround walls. Excavation of the temple started in 1859, when Robert's painted this image it was at the mercy of the desert sands. We have a good number of impressive images from the Standard Folio Edition of this classic work available for purchase. As well as many views of Egypt there are also views available of Tyre, Nubia, Petra, Sinai, the Jordan, Sidon and Baalbec. Please inquire for further details. In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast.that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest."

      Paris: Gide et J. Baudry, 1842-1847. - DUMONT D'URVILLE, Jules Sebastien Cesar (1790-1842). Voyage au Pole Sud et dans L'Oceanie sure les corvettes L'Astrolabe et la Zelee pendant les annees 1837-1838-1839-1840 sous le commandement de M. Dumont-D'Urville Capitaine de Vaisseau - Anthropologie - Geologie. Paris: Gide et J. Baudry, 1842-1847. ATLAS VOLUME ONLY. Folio (21 4/8 x 14 inches). Anthropologie - 47 tinted lithographed plates of life-masks, skulls and cranial cross-sections, and 3 engraved plates; Geologie - 2 double-page engraved maps and 2 full-page maps hand-coloured in part and 9 lithographed plates of views and specimens (plates loose, one or two with frayed edges not affecting the images). Contemporary maroon backed, marbled paper boards, gilt (detached). The important anthropological and geological atlas volume to Dumont D&#146;Urville&#146;s third voyage of exploration to the South Pacific, which left Toulon late in 1837 in the Astrolabe and the Zélée. Their aim was to voyage as far south as possible, surpassing the latitude of Weddell, and so claim the South Magnetic Pole for the French. Then they would pass through the Strait of Magellan, voyage up the coast of Chile and across to Western Australia, on to Hobart, New Zealand, then the East Indies, round the Cape of Good Hope and return in France. In the event they were delayed and spent too long in the Strait of Magellan before heading south and ended up entangled in ice-bergs struggling towards the South Orkney Islands, followed by the South Shetland Islands and finally Bransfield Strait, before conditions onboard became so bad that he returned north to Talcahuano, in Chile, where they established a temporary hospital for the crew members affected by scurvy. A more gentle exploration of the Pacific led the Astrolabe and Zelee to the Marquesas, the East Indies, and on to Tasmania where they were greeted by the then governor of Tasmania, later the celebrated but tragic arctic explorer, Sir John Franklin. Unfortunately Dumont D&#146;Urville learned from Franklin that the American explorer Charles Wilkes was in Sydney preparing to voyage south. Inspired by the competition, Dumont D&#146;Urville determined to head south in spite of the depletion of his crew. By January of 1840 they had crossed the Antarctic Circle and sighted land. They hoisted the Ticolour at Pointe Géologie and named the land beyond for France, Terre Adélie (Adélie Land). Sightings of Wilkes&#146; vessel the Porpoise were recorded, but they returned via New Zealand, the Torres Strait, Timor, Réunion, Saint Helena, reaching Toulon, in early November 1840.

Da bekannt war, ich selbst schriebs dem Polizeydirector, daß um 4 Uhr Nachmittag Studenten hergezogen kamen [?] so hätten zweckmäßige Vorkehrungen getroffen werden sollen. Daß keine Wiederhohlungen weder bey Nacht noch Tag ähnliche Auftritte es gäbe, dem muß vorgebeugt werden. Warnungen, öffentlich, haben zu geschehen, wären sie fruchtlos ist mit dem gehörigen gesetzlichen Ernst zu verfahren. Das Volk darf sich nicht an Aufläufe gewöhnen. Bey Tag und Nacht ist Sorge zu tragen daß nicht nur wo Lola Montez jetzt wohnt sondern auch ihr eigenes Haus beschützt werde. Das alles ist mein ernster Wille [...] Sehr wünschenswerth die Rädelsführer habhaft zu werden." - Nachdem die Äffäre des Bayernkönigs mit der Tänzerin Lola Montez bekannt geworden und das Bestreben des Königs, ihr die bayerische Staatsbürgerschaft zu verleihen, bei seinem Kabinett auf Widerstand gestoßen war, hatten am 11. Februar 1847 sämtliche Minister um ihre Entlassung gebeten; diese folgte am 1. März, am Tag des vorliegenden Schreibens. Unter Schwierigkeiten wurde ein neues Kabinett gebildet und Lola Montez dennoch eingebürgert, was in der Theresienstraße zu Tumulten führte. Am 25. August 1847 wurde sie zur Gräfin von Landsfeld erhoben.

      Pelham Richardson, London 1847 - A large 4to. two volume set in original stamped cloth with gilt decoration on front and rear boards. Both volumes show moderate to heavy rubbing and are reinforced on the spine with black tape. Both volumes loosening from binding in places but gently holding and both contain mimeographed listing of the plates pasted to front or rear flys and dedication page evidently for quick reference. Volume 1 contains 118 text pages followed by 51 single sided full page illustrations of which I believe one (Illustration 37) is an original pen and ink illustration signed with an elaborate E. Volume 2 contains no text, just 107 full page plates 4 of which (illustrations 72-75) I believe are also original ink illustrations signed the same way. Both volumes have fairly minor pencil annotation from a person very familiar with the content. Also included will be a few small sketches of gothic windows found folded within.

On title pages of vols. 1, 4, 6, and 7, incipit staves from no. 8 left blank; filled staves and prices next to them are the same as in vols. 2-3, 5, and 8-12. Title pages are othersie identical. Publisher's blindstamp to title of vols. 1, 3, 4, 6-8, and 10. Caption title "Symphonie" without number through vol. 7; no. 8 with arabic numeral; nos. 9-12 with roman numerals. Caption credits to "J. Haydn" to nos. 8 and 10-12. Publisher's note "Ed. Bote & G. Bock, Berlin" printed at lower right corner of first page of music from vol. 9 on. Notational correction in pencil to p. 108 of no. 6. Bindings slightly worn, rubbed and bumped; spines of vols. 1, 3, and 12 lacking; small stains to vol. 6. A complete set, including first editions in full score, of Hoboken I: 88, 96, and 100, various issues. Hoboken Haydn catalogue III, pp. 17-18 ("Coll. Sy. 5"), with title conforming to the latest of the three given by Hoboken; the imprint allows for dating between 1847 (opening of the Breslau office) and 1866 (liquidation of Scharfenberg & Luis). Hoboken collection catalogue 6: 175 (vol. 11, with mispagination, dated "um 1853"), 234 (vol. 8, misdated "um 1839"), 238 (vol. 10, mislabeled "Erstdruck" and misdated "1839"), 279 (vol. 2, earlier issue with incipits for nos. 1-7 only misdated "1839"), 294 (vol. 1, later issue with incipits for all 12 numbers). The first issues were announced in 1839, and the plate numbers reserved at the same time. Publication, however, seems to have stretched over many years: the first six volumes are listed in Hofmeister 1852, vol. 7 in Hofmeister 1860, and the final five in Hofmeister 1868. The differences in printing quality suggests that vols. 7-12 are first (or early) issues and vols. 1-6 later issues; in vols. 2, 3, and 5, the later issue is confirmed by the presence of all twelve incipits on the title page. The monogram "E.M." cannot be identified, but it is possible that it stands for Eusebius Mandyczewski (1857-1929), the initiator of the first complete edition of Haydn's works. A well- preserved set. Together with: [Hoboken I:97] Symphonien von Joseph Haydn. Partitur... No. 7 C dur... Pr. 1 Thlr. 10 Ngr. [Full score]. Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel [PN 9055], [ca. 1855]. Octavo. Black cloth- backed gray boards with blank label to spine and upper. 1f. (title), 59, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Handstamp of "Karl Schwager Musikalienhandlung u. Antiquariat Wien" to title. Binding quite worn, rubbed and bumped with portions of cloth spine lacking; front endpaper detached. Somewhat browned; minor blue and graphite pencil markings to title; some pages guarded; pp. 5-16 lacking. First Edition, most probably first issue. Hoboken Haydn catalogue I, p. 196 and III, p. 19 (Coll.Sy.7b; there, date is given as "1855/58"). Hoboken collection catalogue 6, 243. Not in Hirsch or RISM. The list of symphonies on the title page includes nine numbers. The first six scores (Hoboken I: 93, 94, 99, 101, 203, 104) were published in Haydn's lifetime and reissued in 1854. The present number was the first of another six symphonies (Hoboken I: 86, 95, 98, 100, and 102), completed by 1858. The fact that the list on the title ends with "no. 9" and not with "no. 12" allows the dating of the present copy to the short time before the new set was complete.
