        Notes of a Military Reconnaissance, from Fort Leavenworth, in Missouri, to San Diego, in California, – including parts of the Arkansas, Del Norte, and Gila Rivers

      Wendell & Van Benthuysen, Printers, Washington, DC 1848 - 614 pages illustrated with 64 lithographed or engraved plates, 3 battle-plans, plus some figure drawings within the text. Octavo (8¾x5¼") bound in original publisher's black cloth and paper spine label. Thirtieth Congress - First Session. Ex. Doc. NO. 41. (Cowan page 195; (Graff 1249); Howes E145; Wagner-Camp 148:5; Zamorano Eighty 33) First edition, House of Representatives issues of the report, containing the reports of Lieutenant Abert, Colonel Cooke, and Captain Johnson as well as that of Emory; the Senate issue only contained the Emory report. In 1844, Emory served in an expedition that produced a new map of Texan claims westward to the Rio Grande. He came to public attention as the author of the Notes of a Military Reconnaissance from Fort Leavenworth in Missouri to San Diego, California, published by the Thirtieth United States Congress in 1848. This report described terrain and rivers, cities and forts and made observations about Indians, Mexicans, primarily in New Mexico Territory, Arizona Territory and Southern California. It was and is considered one of the important chronicles and descriptions of the historic Southwest, particularly noted for its maps. Emory was a reliable and conscientious cartographer. There is a story of testament as to Emory’s dedication to accuracy that says John Bartlett his supervisor in the Corps of Topographical Engineers made him sign off on a misplaced boundary marker, creating a sweet revenge for Emory who replaced him as Head of the International Boundary Commission in 1855. So accurate were his maps that when topographical engineers were surveying possible routes for the transcontinental railroad the most Southern route did not need to be surveyed thanks to the outstanding work by William H. Emory. But William H. Emory did more than just map the terrain; he also made notes about the plant life as well as the people who inhabited the sparsely populated southwest. Notating the social relations of some of the Native American people, he wrote: “Women, when captured, are taken as wives by those who capture them, but they are treated by the Indian wives of the capturers as slaves, and made to carry wood and water; if they chance to be pretty, or receive too much attention from their lords and masters, they are, in the absence of the latter, unmercifully beaten and otherwise maltreated. The most unfortunate thing which can befall a captive woman is to be claimed by two persons. In this case, she is either shot or delivered up for indiscriminate violence. Condition: Binding worn at edges and spine ends, cloth splitting along front joint; occasional light foxing, lacking the two maps as noted, very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        De l'organisation de la republique francaise par Auguste Billiard. Deuxieme edition

      Pagnerre editeur, 1848. In 8, pp. 500. Br. ed. Danni al d. Strappetti riparati a poche pp. interne. Raro esemplare di quest'opera apparsa nel 1846 sotto altro titolo (Organisation de la republique depuis Moise jusqu'a' nos jours) a causa di problemi con la censura cui si fa riferimento in una nota della prefazione. Con la rivoluzione del 1848 Billiard era tornato agli incarichi pubblici che, pero', pote' mantenere per breve tempo. La ristampa di quest'opera, dedicata ai sistemi di associazione politica e di governo accompagnata da da una analisi dei diversi sistemi repubblicani. Billiard ebbe una carriera politica e amministrativa complessa e disomogenea. Importante fu il suo passaggio, come alto funzionario, alle Isole Reunion. Da questa eperienza trasse forse la opera piu' nota: Voyager aux colonies orientales... Si batte' anche per l'abolizione della schiavitu' e fu autore di molti libelli polemici dedicati a fatti d'attualita' ITA

         Commerce et traite des Noirs aux côtes occidentales d'Afrique.

      Paris Imprimerie Nationale 1848 In-8 de cij-(1 bl.)-230 pp.; cartonnage de papier marbré, pièce de titre noire (reliure moderne). Première édition, illustrée de 2 cartes lithographiées dépliantes (Cours du Sénégal, de la Falémé et de la Gambie, et Carte des côtes occidentales d'Afrique montrant les produits commerciaux qui se traitent sur les côtes). Commandant la Malouine en 1837, Bouët-Villaumez mena une campagne d'exploration de la côte, depuis la Guinée jusqu'au cap Lopez et signa en février 1839 un traité de commerce avec le roi Denis qui régnait sur une partie du Gabon. Promu capitaine de corvette en septembre 1840, il repartit aussitôt pour les eaux africaines, commandant le Nisus et la station navale des côtes d'Afrique. Gouverneur du Sénégal l'année suivante, il s'efforça de développer le commerce français dans le golfe de Guinée en créant des comptoirs à Assinie et Grand Bassan. De cette longue expérience africaine de près de trente ans, Bouët-Willaumez tira en 1848 le présent ouvrage. Il y détaille tous les types de commerce réalisés de Saint-Louis du Sénégal à l'Angola, et consacre une seconde partie au commerce des esclave qui continuait de s'y pratiquer malgré l'abolition de la traite par l'Angleterre et la France. Bon exemplaire. Ryckebusch, 986. -- Inconnu de Polak.

His Coat of Arms features on the Bailiff's pew in the Town Church, St Peter Port. MacCulloch was born in Guernsey in 1808. He was educated at La Plaiderie, St Peter Port and an academy in Brussels. He was actively involved in several the major Victorian building projects, including the of St Barnabas Church and St Stephens Church. He was on the committee responsible for the construction of Victoria Tower in 1848, and was States Supervisor when the foundation stone of the new harbor was laid. He was elected Jurat in 1844. In 1869, he became Lieutenant Bailiff, and in 1884 was appointed Bailiff of Guernsey. He was knighted in 1886, and retired due to ill-health in 1895. In 1873 he persuaded the States to buy the near-derelict Chapel of St Appoline in St Saviours - the first ancient monument to be acquired by the States of Guernsey. In 1886, he persuaded the States to vote £200, which together with private contributions, funded the Model Yacht Pond on the Castle Emplacement. He was fascinated with old traditions, beliefs, customs and superstitions of the island, and he wrote down to form the basis for the book, Guernsey Folk Lore, which was edited and published by Edith Carey after his death in 1903.

        Original sepia ink drawing, 4.5 x 7.5 inches, signed "E. Lear" in the lower left corner. Laid down on light card stock

      1848-1849, 1848. Glue residue at the extreme right edge of the sheet from where this was once mounted, not effecting the image; small mended tear in the lower right of the image.. A scene with a group of men with rifles in the fore- and background, relaxing by a hillside. Lear's affinity for such serene gatherings reappears as a theme throughout his career. This is very likely from the time of his earliest travels to Egypt in 1848-1849.

        The Past, the Present, and the Future

      Philadelphia: Carey & Hart,, 1848. Octavo. Original purple cloth, titles to spine gilt, decoration to boards and spine in blind, yellow endpapers. Spine and edges of boards faded, ink stain to foot of spine, slight dampstaining to top edge of front board and fore edge of text block, small chips to fore edge of front free endpaper and initial leaf, the occasional minor blemish to contents. A very good copy. First edition. Inscribed by the author on the title page: "To J. W. Collyn with the regards of the Author". In The Past, the Present, and the Future, Carey (1793?1879) vigorously appeals for tariff protection and attacks the Ricardian theory of rent. He argues that "the historical sequence of cultivation at least in the United States was the exact reverse of the one proposed by Ricardo, namely, from inferior to superior land, apparently because returns from the application of capital to land yield increasing rather than diminishing returns" (Blaug). The similarity of ideas between Bastiat and Carey is well documented, particularly the close parallelism in their theories of the origin of land value. However, Haney observes that "Carey impresses the reader as decidedly the more original, and on the whole his work antedated Bastiat's" (Haney, p. 338). Carey's ideas caused much controversy and were refuted by Mill in his Principles of Political Economy (1848).

Gen'l John E. Wool / By G. W. Cutter / Late Capt. / 2nd Ky. Infantry." John Ellis Wool (1784-1869) was second in command at the Battle of Buena Vista, and was "largely responsible for the victory of Buena Vista" (DAB). Cutter served under Wool's command and writes about him in the title poem: "And veteran Wool, the heady fight / As nobly did sustain, / As if the glow of Queenstown height / Had fired his soul again."

      Paris Guillaumin et Cie, Libraires 1848 In-8 de XVI-V-360 pp., demi-chagrin vert, dos à nerfs (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale rare. Adolphe Quételet étudie les phénomènes sociaux dans leur développement. Continuation de ses études sur l'homme et sur l'état social, ce travail est le complément de son Essai de physique sociale et des Lettres sur la théorie des probabilités. L'ouvrage est divisé en trois parties I. De l'homme (qualités physiques, morales et intellectuelles) II. Des sociétés (état physique, moral et intellectuel) III. De l'humanité. Quételet reprend et complète sa théorie de l'homme moyen et montre que « la loi des causes accidentelles est une loi générale qui s'applique aux individus comme aux peuples et qui domine nos qualités morales et intellectuelles tout aussi bien que nos qualités physiques ». Dans cette étude, Quételet pose les jalons d'une sociologie et d'une philosophie de l'histoire. Il considéra son ouvrage comme l'esquisse d'une science nouvelle dont l'objet était d'étudier l'homme dans ses divers états d'agrégation depuis l'état individuel jusqu'à l'état de combinaison le plus élevé qui comprend l'humanité entière. Quelques rousseurs mais très bon exemplaire. Einaudi, 4594 ; Goldsmiths, 35532 ; Catalogue de l'exposition Adolphe Quételet à l'Académie Royale de Belgique (1974), n°72.

Raro esemplare di quest'opera apparsa nel 1846 sotto altro titolo (Organisation de la republique depuis Moise jusqu'a' nos jours) a causa di problemi con la censura cui si fa riferimento in una nota della prefazione. Con la rivoluzione del 1848 Billiard era tornato agli incarichi pubblici che, pero', pote' mantenere per breve tempo. La ristampa di quest'opera, dedicata ai sistemi di associazione politica e di governo accompagnata da da una analisi dei diversi sistemi repubblicani. Billiard ebbe una carriera politica e amministrativa complessa e disomogenea. Importante fu il suo passaggio, come alto funzionario, alle Isole Reunion. Da questa eperienza trasse forse la opera piu' nota: Voyager aux colonies orientales. Si batte' anche per l'abolizione della schiavitu' e fu autore di molti libelli polemici dedicati a fatti d'attualita' ITA

        [ENGLISH GAME-KEEPER'S MANUSCRIPT]. Cover Title: "1848 No. 2. Journal to be kept by William Bell, Keeper Westward Parks

      Westward Parks, Cumberland, England, 1848. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo. Unpaginated ledger with tabs for A-Z (altogether 53 pages with handwritten notes, the first six being the author's description of the what the Journal will contain; towards the end is a section of 8 handwritten pages containing "The original Code of Instructions given to the [Game] Keepers in 1840. Should always be in the possession of each Keeper and constantly referred to.? The final 5 pages contain a detail list of "Game Killed by [William] Bell" from the year 1848. Bound in contemporary quarter roan over marbled boards (corners and extremities worn, internally excellent). Bookplate of Wyndham Baron Leconfield (see below), with the engraver's name in microscopic lettering: "C.W. Sherborn, Sc[ulpsit] 1894. Fascinating manuscript Journal of a known English game-keeper. The very long title inside of the front cover reads: "1848: A Journal of observations of facts connected with game of all sorts, birds, beasts, and fishes and any circumstances of Natural History that may be worthy to be recorded. Mode of keeping the journal. It must be understood that no fact is to be recorded that the person does not personally observe and know to be true. All entries should be made at the time of observation and nothing trusted to memory, which is often treacherous and leads to errors. The chief use of these annual records consists in their truth and exactness. The following are some of the subjects to which attention must be give, and each subject entered at its own letter in the ledger." William Bell gives additional details about the intended scope of the MS and the methodology of its compilation. For birds: "Date and place where the first [bird] egg was seen, also when the first brood was observed, and where, &c." For hares and field-fare: "Date when the first young are seen and where, &c." For dogs: "Any think remarkable in their habits, breeding, diseases, &c." Bell provides a valuable assessment of his work as a game-keeper: "An intelligent Keeper with his eyes open and his wits about him may collect and furnish a great deal of valuable information on the above named and many other subjects, to make this book useful." At the time the present MS was compiled, Westward Park (Cumberland) was owned by George Wyndham, 1st Baron Leconfield (1787-1869) for whom the Journal was written, and who is named throughout simply as "The Gen." As we read from the 1847 Cumberland Directory, the woods of Westward Park contained 400 acres. Written in the MS itself: "This Book to be delivered at Cockermouth Castle (Cumberland) at the end of the year, when another will be given." Whereas the Journal is named "No. 2" we have been unable to located any other survival from the series. Evidently the present MS remained at Cockermouth Castle, and at some point after 1894 the bookplate of "Wyndham Baron Leconfield" was affixed inside the front cover; this individual was Henry Wyndham, 2nd Baron Leconfield (1830-1901). Following the alphabetical entries is a long series of "Observations," some of which are here transcribed: ?Cucoo On the 4th May. I heard the Cucoo in the high park. Curlew on the 25th of August. I shot a Curlew on Thistlebottom although a great number breed on our ground, it is the first I ever killed after the twelfth of August. About the last week of July or first week of August you may see dozens of them but they always leave the ground before the twelfth for the sea shore. I frequently find a nest they lay four eggs. The color of the Plover?s egg but much larger being the size of a very large duck egg. I like to see plenty of Curlew?s. They always give warning if any person be on the ground with dogs. You may hear them whistling and baiting the intruders for a mile.? ?Shooting in General. On the 5th Jan. The Gen. and Mr. Laverick came to shoot in the woods. The first day Mr. Laverick had fourteen shots and killed seven, 4 Woodcocks and 3 Cock Pheasants. The Gen. had no chances almost that day. The next day Mr. Bragg came. I don?t know how many shots Mr. Laverick had that day. He killed 1 Woodcock, 1 Wen Phes. and a hare or two. The first shots was misses. The Gen. killed 1 Woodcock, 1 Cock Phes. The best shot I ever saw and five or six hares. If the Gen. had had a dog or two he would have killed a great deal more. I never saw anyone yet that could shoot the Gen. in the woods. They are often very quick and ugly shots. The more difficult the chance, the more sure is the Gen. to kill. I don?t think so much of Mr. Laverick?s shooting in the woods. He seems so agitated when his dogs has a point. I had often heard it said that he never missed but I soon saw different. The dogs made a point on Realthwaite Green at a Woodcocks. The Gen. killed it very quick when it was half way to the ground?..The Gen., me and a boy was standing in the line. He (Laverick) hit the Gen. but not to draw blood. He need not have shot it as the Gen. had disabled it before we could have taken it up. Mr. Laverick has a very awkward way in carrying his gun??? ?Snaring on Monday 17th April. Hodgson the policeman of Wigton caught Scott the besom maker that we had a warrant out against. It was in Oct. when we caught him. He was fined 1 pound and 15 sixpences, all the Potters in Wigton subscribed for him and paid the fine. I believe the potters and broom makers are most of them poachers. The best plan is to keep them out of our woods altogether. They only give a few shillings for the Birch tops every year.? ?Phest [Pheasant] and Par. [Partridge] shooting. On the 6th Oct. the Gen., Mr. Bragg, Capt. Grant and Capt. Flemming came to shoot at Westward. They shot two day. They killed 15 hares, 14 partridges and 2 Pheasants. The Gen. and Mr. Bragg beat the two Captains.? Further literature: Mannix & Whellan, "History, Gazetteer and Directory of Cumberland" (1847).

        L'INSURRECTION DE MILAN EN 1848.

      Prima edizione. Testo francese. Cm.23x14. Pg.VIII, 216. Legatura successiva in mz.tela con piatti originali applicati alla coperta. Esemplare in barbe, con segni d'uso ai tagli. Leggere bruniture dovute al tipo di carta utilizzata. Minime chiose d'epoca a inchiostro. Si tratta della rara prima edizione della lucida analisi del Cattaneo sugli episodi salienti delle Cinque giornate di Milano, che lo avevano visto protagonista alla direzione del Consiglio di Guerra. La datazione dell'"Avant-Propos" dell'Autore, "Paris, 30 septembre 1848" segnala che l'opera venne composta a Parigi, dove il Cattaneo si trovava, proveniente dall'esilio luganese, per incarico del Mazzini. Il Cattaneo impiegò circa un mese per la compilazione, e il testo circolò grossomodo dal novembre 1848 al marzo del '49, quando la sconfitta dell'armata piemontese a Novara ne decretò la messa al bando. "Dopo il 1848 Cattaneo si volge, con consapevole e non recriminante rinuncia, ad analizzare con acutezza, sebbene con qualche asperità critica, gli avvenimenti della guerra, pubblicando quei poderosi documenti della sua intelligenza storiografica, che sono "L'Insurrection de Milan", scritta a Parigi nel 1848, e poi, in edizione italiana, a Castagnola nel 1849, e l'"Archivio triennale", raccolto negli anni successivi e rimasto incompiuto" (Guido Quazza). > Ampio spazio viene dedicato alla genesi dell'opera dal Parenti in "Rarità bibliografiche dell'Ottocento", VI, pg.136-139, "La più nota delle sue opere è certamente la relazione, da lui scritta e pubblicata a Parigi, sulle giornate dell'insurrezione milanese. C'è un po' di confusione nella determinazione della prima edizione, sia del testo originale francese, sia della traduzione italiana largamente rifatta e ampliata: chi crede che le prime due siano apparse a Bruxelles, come il D'Ancona - Bacci; chi attribuisce soltanto all'edizione italiana di Bruxelles la priorità, come gli stessi Levi e Vismara. Quanto alla prima, nel testo francese, non ci può essere dubbio: è quella parigina dell'Amyot. Il Cttaneo iniziò il lavoro nell'agosto [...] Tre giorni dopo era già incominciata la composizione e il Cattaneo mandava giorno per giorno il manoscritto al tipografo [...] Il 22 settembre era incominciata la stampa [...] La notizia della fine: "il mio libro è uscito", la data il 29 ottobre, insieme con l'annuncio della partenza per Basilea". "Edizione originale, rara". Caddeo, 82. Predari segnala erroneamente come prima l'edizione francese di Bruxelles dell'anno successivo. Codice libreria 134537.

Written during the European Revolutions of 1848 to an unnamed minister about Arnold Mendelssohn (1817-1854), a cousin of the composer Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy: "Darf ich es wagen, theuerste Excellenz, mitten unter den zunehmenden unheimlichen Bewegungen der Hauptstadt Sie an Ihr Wohlwollen für mich, an die Bittschrift zu erinnern, die Sie die Gewogenheit haben wollten, in meinem Namen (in Angelegenheit der hoch betrübten Mendelsohnschen Familie) dem König zu überreichen. Die Sache liegt mir schmerzhaft am Herzen! [...]". - In 1846, Arnold Mendelssohn had become involved in the so-called "Casket Affair", which ruined his life: for the theft of a casket, the content of which was thought to be vital to Ferdinand Lassalle's court case, he was sentenced to five years imprisonment and lost the privilege to practise as physician. His accomplices, Alexander Oppenheim and Lassalle, were acquitted. Alexander von Humboldt interceded on his behalf, and Mendelssohn was pardoned in 1849, but was banished from Germany. - Somewhat wrinkled; the reverse of fol. 2 slightly spotty.

[Moritz] Saphir hat mein gutes schwunghaftes Gedicht nicht abgedruckt" (undat. Brief). - "Mit banger Seele wende ich mich bittend an Ihre Güte und Fürsprache, als an ein Wesen, dem ich alles Gute, Edle und Menschliche zumuthe. Mein Ludwig ist in einer höchst drückenden Lage. Er soll ausziehen, ohne die Miethe und Alles was daran hängt bezahlen zu können. Er mußte sich, da man ihm eine Hauptmanns Charge gab, equirieren, es beträgt 80 f CM. und er hat die Mittel nicht, da ihm an der Gage so viel abgezogen wird. Mein Herz blutet wahrlich, daß ich seine Bedrängnisse sehen muß, ohne ihm helfen zu können. Es sind die ärgsten Schmerzen, die das Leiden eines geliebten Geschöpfes uns verursacht. - In dieser Noth bat er mich, zwei Ringe, die ihm Gräfin Moszinsha vor 4 Jahren in Lemberg verehrte, als er zu Gastspiel dort war, zu verkaufen [...]" (Br. v. 28. IV. 1848, hierzu auch das Antwortschreiben). - Schon in jungen Jahren literarisch tätig geworden, wurde 1834 in Lemberg das von der Fünfzehnjährigen zu Ehren des Geburtstags von Kaiser Franz I. gedichtete Lustspiel "
