George Allen
San Francisco, 1849. Envelope or Cover. Very good. This three-page stampless letter measures about 15.5" x 10" unfolded. It bears a circular "San Francisco Cal." postmark with a manuscript "40" postal rate (the price to mail a letter from the Pacific coast to anywhere else in the United States) and a note "per stemr California". In nice shape; when the wax seal was originally removed, it took a 1" square of text along with it. Transcript included. In this letter, the Captain of the ship Pharsalia reports his arrival in San Francisco: "after a long and tedious passage of one hundred & seven days to Valparaiso at which place we water'd Purchased fresh Provisions and vegtables . . . I have some considerable iron work to repair . . . the Head of the Rudder , , , and . . . I lost my topgall mast off Cape Horn.

VV.AA.
1849. AMAZING, ORIGINAL MID-19TH CENTURY MANUSCRIPT JOURNAL FROM AN UPSTATE NEW YORK SCHOOL DISTRICT. This important early volume dates from 1849-1878 and was kept by School District No. 4 in Stockbridge, New York. Compelling handwritten book chronicles the many challenges the town faced in maintaining their one room schoolhouse over the course of nearly 30 years. Historical records show the town was home to a population of about 2,000 residents during this period. Volume is also early in the context of town history, as Stockbridge itself was established just 13 years previous in 1836. (Scroll down below description for more pictures). Fascinating handwritten book chronicles the school district's operation of the town's one room schoolhouse for over a quarter of a century. Among the many subjects covered in compelling detail include schoolhouse finances: "To L. L. Cummings wages for teaching school 4 mo. at 18 dols. $72", "To Helen Turner for teaching nine weeks and one day at $1.75 cents per week", "Miss Merella Vaughn for teaching summer school $35", "To William Dexter for building back house $20", etc. Many unique aspects of mid-19th century public education are revealed throughout book. For example, the school district paid local residents to put up teachers so that teachers could live in the community while teaching at the schoolhouse: "To C. L. Anderson for boarding teacher 18 weeks $27". The district also employed a local resident a fire starter, whose responsibility it was to start a fire at the schoolhouse each day during the colder weather in order to keep the cla … [Click Below for Full Description]

"During subsequent years, whenever I had leisure, I pursued my experiments, and my book on 'Insectivorous Plants' was published in July 1875 that is, sixteen years after my first observations. The delay in this case, as with all my other books, has been a great advantage to me; for a man after a long interval can criticise his own work, almost as well as if it were that of another person.

Gerstäcker, Friedrich, Schriftsteller und Abenteurer (1816-1872).
"- Und fragt Ihr den Wanderer, wo er es am schönsten gefunden auf all seinen Reisen und Fahrten, wo ihm das Herz am hoechsten, am seligsten geschlagen, wo ihm der Himmel am reinsten gelächelt, die Sterne die liebsten treulichsten Grüße herniedergefunkelt - es ist ein wunderliches Ding, aber es war da, wo er zuerst den Fuß zur Heimkehr wandte, und wie eine fata morgana lag von dem Augenblick an der Heimath Bild - wenn auch noch weit, weit entfernt, auf den Hügeln und Wäldern die ihn umgaben." - 1849 unternahm Gerstäcker eine weitere Reise, die ihn diesmal nach Südamerika, Kalifornien, Tahiti und Australien führte und von der er erst 1852 wieder nach Europa zurückkam und die er 1853 in "Reisen" schilderte. Er schlug sich unterwegs auf abenteuerliche Weise durch.

1849. [circa 1849-87]. Two hand-colored lithographs, 14 1/2 x 21 1/4", both with a second leaf of text; matted, very good. § Plates 236 and 260 with original corresponding text from A Monograph of the Trochilidae, or Family of Humming-Birds Volume 4. Plates lithographed after John Gould, H.C. Richter and W. Hart, drawn for the most part by Hullmandel & Walton. Gould supervised the lithographers, who applied gold and silver leaf underneath the watercolor to achieve a remarkably lifelike representation of each hummingbird's iridescent feathers. The two species of hummingbirds depicted are both from Central America, Heliomaster Constanti or plain-capped starthroat and Helianthea Bonapartei, the golden-bellied starfrontlet.

Bradbury and Evans May 1849-November 1850, London. First edition in parts of "the most perfect of all the Dickens novels" (Virginia Woolf). Octavo, original blue-green illustrated serial issue wrappers being twenty parts in nineteen with the majority of preliminary advertisements present, frontispiece, vignette title-page and forty engraved plates. In excellent condition, an unrestored example of Dickens' classic work, with some of the backstrips with small chips. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very nice example. "With many lovers of the author's works David Copperfield ranks as the finest of his writings. With a book which gave to the world such characters as Betsy Trotwood, Micawber, the Pegottys and Mr. Dick. it would be strange if it had been otherwise" (Eckel, 77). "Dickens and Browne are the most celebrated author-artist team in the history of English book illustration," and Copperfield was their "most popular success" (Hodnett, 111-12). "Charles Dickens and Hablot Knight Browne are the most celebrated author-artist team in the history of English book illustration," and Copperfield was their "most popular success" (Hodnett, 111-12).
