        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM HENRY ALEXANDER SCAMMELL DEARBORN TO JOHN JAMES ABERT, ON UNITED STATES SURVEYING EXPEDITIONS].

      [Hawthorne Cottage, Roxbury, Ma.]. Dec. 9, . 1848 - [1 1/2]pp. on folded quarto sheet, blank integral leaf present. Light fold lines. Quite clean. Very good. In a half morocco box. An engaging letter, discussing the state of the United States Exploring Expedition, and particularly William Emory's NOTES OF A MILITARY RECONNOISSANCE., which was published shortly before this letter was written. Emory's text was a landmark in the history of California and the Far Southwest, and includes some of the first American views of the region. In his letter to Col. Abert, whose son was a member of the expedition, Dearborn lauds the courage and accomplishments of the brash young gentlemen of the army such as Emory and Abert's son, for bringing honor to themselves and to the country. The letter reads: "I am most grateful for Lt. Emory's RECONNOISSANCE in Mexico and California which you so kindly sent to me. I had before read from various Reports of his duties in the same expedition, as far as he descended the Rio Grande. I can not, insufficiently express [?] given the opinion I have formed of the meritorious labors of those officers. For scientific facts, in the geography, and natural history of those regions, the country is under the greatest obligations. They have energetically, have cheerfully, have patriotically and have gallantly did they discharge their so various and multifarious duties. Such services not only reflect the highest honor on those estimable young gentlemen, and on the group to which they belong but on the country, which can boast of much accomplished officers." Henry Alexander Scammell Dearborn, like his illustrious father, spent a career in public service, most famously as the collector of the port of Boston. At the time of writing, Dearborn was the mayor of Roxbury, Massachusetts. His enthusiastic response to Emory's report represents the optimism that Emory's and other expedition reports fostered among influential members of the upper class. The underlying hope was that the lands acquired in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo would prove fruitful and offer a vast new arena for physical and economic expansion. DAB V, pp.176-77. APPLETON'S CYCLOPÆDIA I, pp.8-9.

        Kladderadatsch: Organ fur und von den Bummler [Complete first year of the magazine and additional Extrablatt]. 33 issues.

      NP, Berlin 1848 - The "Kladderatsch" [Berlin slang for "falling and breaking into fragments"] was one of the most important German periodicals. The magazine, founded by bookseller Albert Hoffmann and acclaimed writer David Kalish, was published between 1848 and 1944 and focussed on political satire, through articles [especially Ernst Dohm and Rudolf Lowenstein] and caricatures [especially Willhelm Scholz]. Especially of importance is the first year of its publishing [this copy], since it refers to the events of the 1848- revolution in Germany, where the first German parliament, the "Frankfurter Nationalversammlung" was founded at Paulskirche, Frankfurt. The first issue in 1848 was sold out on publication date.4to. 3/4 vellum over black paper covered boards, with special issue and complete 32 editions of the first publication year bound in. Continuous pagination. (3) 132pp. Modern endpapers. Newspaper clip pasted on inside of backboard, referring to the periodical. Illustrated throughout with b/w sketches. Minor scuffing to boards. Browning and sporadic foxing to pages. In German, in Gothic script. Very good condition. The political line of the periodical was moderate nationalistic [it supported Bismarck]. During the Weimarer Republic, it drifted more to the right and eventually supported the Nazis openly. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A History of the Royal Society, with Memoirs of the Presidents

      London: John Parker, 1848. Two volumes, large octavo, with plates and illustrations; a fine copy in later half calf, spines ornately gilt with double labels. The great history of the Royal Society. A handsome copy, finely bound, of the standard early history of the influential Royal Society. From its foundation in the seventeenth century to the present day it has been at the very centre of science in the widest sense. It is in fact the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence. A remarkable line-up inventions and discoveries were first announced in presentations to the society, early momentous announcements ranging from Harvey&#39;s discovery of the circulation of blood, Wren&#39;s papers on the pendulum and Saturn, and Newton&#39;s telescope to Babbage&#39;s calculating machine. In fact the material on Babbage is significant enough for Jeremy Norman to have included Weld&#39;s book in his "Origins of Cyberspace" collection and bibliography. Weld&#39;s book tells the story of the first two centuries of the Society&#39;s history; inevitably there is much on Sir Joseph Banks, its most famous early President, whose position at the head of the Society epitomised his role as the great disseminator and pollinator in the sciences. There is considerable material on Captain Cook, including of course Pringle&#39;s famous delivery of his paper on scurvy discoveries, and on other voyagers showing to what extent the Society was involved with geographical discovery and the attendant scientific enquiries.

      London: John Murray. Hardcover. 354 pages. pages. Index. Black and white plates. Multi-panel fold-out family tree at back. "Light is thrown from a fresh angle on Disraeli and his erratic wife, as well as on Thackeray, all three friends of the family. There are glimpses of Louis Napoleon and the disturbances of 1848 and of 1870, of the Austrian Court in 1873, and of three generations of our own royal family. In their letters and conversations we find characteristic traits of Mr. Gladstone, Lord Rosebery, and their Liberal supporters, and of Burne-Jones and Meredith, and other artists and writers.... The Rothschild family in its earlier days appeals to the imagination by its financial power, which brought it into contact with those who ruled the destinies of Europe and by its munificence; while its Judaism and the peculiar features of its solidarity make the family history interesting and, in some ways, unique." - from Preface. Considerable wear and staining to blue cloth exterior. Gift greetings inside front board. Prior owner&#39;s name atop front free endpaper. Binding tender but intact.

        Bernhard. Roman. Deutsch von (G.) Scherr. Erstes bis siebentes Bändchen in 1 Band

      Stuttgart, Franckh 1848 - Erste deutsche Ausgabe. Die Schriftstellerin George Sand (eigentl. Aurore Dupin,1804&#150;1876) kämpfte an der Seite der Revolutionäre 1848 für eine soziale Republik. Vorliegender berühmter Roman über Bernhard Mauprat, oder die Geschichte einer Liebe spielt im Distrikt Varenne; er erschien erstmals in der französischen Originalausgabe 1837. Andre Maurois nannte Mauprat »einen hervorragenden Mantel- und Degenroman«, und das ist er gewiß auch, aber vor allem ist er ein grandioser Entwicklungs- und Zeitroman, der das Ideal der Liebe in der Realität einfordert. An der Grenze zwischen den Marken und dem Berry, in der Varenne, lebt um die Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts das alte Landadelsgeschlecht der Mauprat. Der ältere Zweig haust mörderischen Räubern gleich auf der Stammburg, und der Großvater zwingt den Waisenknaben Bernard, in dieser Hölle heranzuwachsen, als Faustpfand für seine Erbansprüche. Die jüngere Linie der Mauprat, die in vornehmer Zurückgezogenheit unweit auf ihrem Landsitz lebt, hat zwar keinen männlichen Nachkommen, aber eine Tochter: Edmee de Mauprat, schön, gebildet, leidenschaftlich und mutig. Als sich die Siebzehnjährige bei einem Jagdausflug verirrt und auf die Stammburg verschleppt wird, begegnet sie Bernard, der sie vergewaltigen will. Aber dann beginnt die Geschichte einer Liebe, die erst nach vielen spannenden Irrungen und Wirrungen ihre Erfüllung finden wird. Es beginnen die Jahre der Erziehung, der Sozialisation für Bernard, eingebettet in die historischen Zeitläufte bis zur Großen Revolution, und um die Hauptfiguren des Romans gruppieren sich eindrucksvoll gezeichnete Charaktere: Patience, der bäuerliche Philosoph, Don Marcasse, der Maulwurfsfänger, und Abbe Aubert, ein jansenistischer Priester. - Romantisme littérature, première édition en allemand du roman de l'auteur féminin la plus célèbre de littérature française, dont le romantisme continue de bouleverser chaque génération. - Das belletrist. Ausland , 1162-1168. - Schönes Exemplar, nur gering stockfl.; aus fürstl. Bibliothek 247; 179 Seiten Marmor. Karton der Zeit mit blauem vergold.

This is the UNCOMMON FIRST EDITION of renowned writer Wilkie Collins's first book, a biography of his father, published when he was only 24. The biography was completed the year after his father, the noted artist William Collins, died.

The book received generally good reviews, and was praised by writers such as Maria Edgeworth and Walter de la Mare. Wilkie's first novel, Antonina, was published in 1850. Very good in contemporary three-quarter brown leather that has some scuffing and rubbing, with marbled boards and end papers, gilt title, and rules on spine, and gilt to top edges.

        Temple of Wady Kardassy, Nubia.

      Moon, F.G., London 1848 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.

        Map of Oregon and Upper California from the Surveys of John Charles Fremont and Other Authorities?

      Washington City: Senate of the United States, 1848. Rare. offwhite paper printed in black. Very, very faint browning at upper margin and lower left, left margin with minimal nicks. Old, archival tape repairs from backside in folds and corners of folds. An attractive map with no loss of paper. Approximately 71 x 90 cm. Lithographed by E. Weber & Company, Balt[imore]. The Mexican, Oregon Territory and British Possession borders hand coloured in green, the Pacific and some lakes in blue, and most rivers in red, all within a yellow border, much more colour on this map than is usual Scale 1:3,000,000. The northern and southers borders are outlined in green, as is the border between Oregon and California and the eastern boundary of the Rocky Mountains, the South Pass and Sierra Madre. At the top of the map is an elevation profile of the route from the South Pass to San Francisco. Both the Plumas and American Rivers show areas marked ? ?El Dorado? or Gold Region?. A landmark map deemed one of the most important in American history. Schwartz calls it an ?epochal? map and states, as do other authorities, that it is the ?Most accurate general map of the Far West for its time?. Underscoring its importance, Wheat devotes seven text pages and two illustrations to this fascinating map. Wheat notes that Fremont?s journals were burned after the expedition and the notes he did from 1845-46 were the most detailed ones he ever made. The Preuss map was the first to show the Mormon Zion settlement. It does place it at the northern shore of Utah Lake, which is wrong, however. It is also the first map to use the name ?Golden Gate? referring to San Francisco Bay. Furthermore, the map detailed much of the Great Basin and further west that had hitherto been a vast ?unknown?

        The miracles of our Lord

      London: Longman & Co.. 1848. "8vo, 15 leaves, chromolithographed throughout by Humphreys, plus 2 leaves of text (illuminator&#39;s remarks and a descriptive index of the miracles); extraordinarily well-preserved papier-mâché fancy strapwork boards incorporating the title and 6 oval portraits within a central panel, and made from a mold and adhered to paper card, sheep spine elaborately blindstamped to match and sandwiched between card and cover marbled endpapers, a.e.g.; a few very small cracks at extremities, else a fine example of this Victorian style of binding, and scarce thus as these bindings are susceptible to damage. This style of binding was first done by Humphreys in 1847 on his Parables of Our Lord, and was ""contrived to look like carved ebony &#133; the result was splendidly gothic and impressive &#133; the biggest triumph among all the ingenuities of Victorian commercial bookbinding &#133; Noel Humphreys&#39; illuminated books are rich and consistent examples of Victorian gothic design, and are among the best examples of chromolithography of the century. No lithographer is mentioned in any of them: but most of them were probably printed under the supervision of Owen Jones &#133; About eight [Levin says 12] different titles seem to have been bound in this style, of which three appeared in later editions"" (McLean, Victorian Book Design, see chapts. 10 and 17).
