(NELSON) PETTIGREW, Thomas Joseph.
London: T. and W. Boone,, 1849. 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue linen-grained cloth, title gilt to the spines, elaborate panelling in blind to the boards. Small bookseller's stamp of White, Doncaster to a double-sided letterpress advertising flyer for the title tipped in at the front free endpaper of the first volume, and to the front free endpaper of the second. Engraved portrait frontispiece to each, 2 plates of facsimiles, one of them folding, folding plate of the Danish line of Defence at Copenhagen and 2 portrait plates of Emma Hamilton, facsimile autographs to the text. A little rubbed, spines a touch sunned, front hinge of volume I and rear hinge of volume II just started, rear free endpaper neatly excised, toning to the text, light foxing to the plates, a very good set. First Edition, and uncommon thus, the edition selling through almost immediately. Important contribution to Nelson biography: "Pettigrew used a large selection from the Nelson papers of Lady Hamilton, which he had acquired Â… [from the widow] of an old friend of Nelson, Alderman Joshua Jonathan Smith [who] rescued Lady Hamilton from bankruptcy in 1813" (Cowie). Controversial in its time, not only did Pettigrew "conclusively prove the nature of the tie connecting Lord Nelson with Lady Hamilton" (ODNB), but also established beyond doubt the parentage of Horatia. His decision not to publish the letters in full, but rather to "embody the whole in the form of a narrative" may have allowed doubts about his conclusions to linger. A great number of these papers were to end up in the Morrison collection. U … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Stark Mills)
Manchester, New Hampshire, 1849. Broadside. 8vo. 215 x 175 mm., [8 ½ x 7 inches]. Text enclosed within a decorative typographical border. Folded with previous repairs to folds, small hole at center fold. Dated December 5, 1849 and signed Mary Bennet. The broadside records the rules which every person must sign before employment commences and includes details about hours of work and requirements about absenteeism, alcohol use, and use of profane language. Each mill worker would live in the company boarding houses unless excused by the Overseer. The broadside contains information about monthly wages, but no specific information is supplied. It is also emphatic that theft of yarn, cloth, or other properties of the company would be prosecuted "for every such offence." Stark Mills was an affiliate of Amoskeag Manufacturing Company, which was to become the largest and most important textile manufacturer during the 19th century. Stark Mills was at the center of the development of Manchester as a leading city in New Hampshire and was resident to Building Number 1, the centerpiece at the time, of a complex of plants that made up Manchester's manufacturing zone. The zone included housing, schools and company stores where employees lived and raised their families. The goal of the city fathers was to build a Utopian city where employees could live and work in a secure environment. This type of benevolent management included employee access to schools, churches, medical care, parks, and fire stations and libraries. One wonders how this Utopian scheme played o … [Click Below for Full Description]

JONES, Owen.
London: Longman & Co, 1849. First edition. Beautifully printed illuminations by Jones. 18 leaves (34 pages) chromolithographed in gold and colour. Decorated in Gothic style in deep relief. The boards have been covered in red leather, which follows, almost exactly, the original design. The book is stamped "Bound by Remnant, Edmonds and Remnant" to the first blank page, but we assume that this is a slightly later re-bind, rather than a variant binding (?) rebacked in morocco retaining much of original spine. a perfect example of the Victorian mania for unusual bookbindings and bookbinding materials. Red and blue design to endpapers. These have been printed on a heavy textured paper. The text is an extract from the Book of Ecclesiastes, Chapters 1 - 12 from the King James Bible. Unpaginated. All edges gilt. The book contains two bookplates. The armorial plate of Aubrey G. Jamaica. Aubrey George Spencer (1795-1872) was the first bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Newfoundland and Bermuda (1839-1843). He was also bishop of Jamaica. His brother George Spencer became Bishop of Madras. He is from the Spencer family. His title and the mitre on his bookplate identify this as having come into his possession between 1849 and 1855. Spencer was firmly Protestant, seeing all but the Church of England as being in error, and was the author of several works supporting this view. It is ironic then, that the ownership of the book passed to the library of the Mount Street Jesuits in London, and the second bookplate shows that it belonged to the Society of Jesus.

1849. George Washington Williams was one of the first black writers on African-American history, a Civil war soldier, a Baptist minister, and also a politician, lawyer, journalist and publisher.

His two volume work History of the Negro Race in America from 1619 to 1880 is considered the first such history published. *Please note this is Volume 2 only - 1800 to 1880* In good condition, blue cloth, somewhat damp stained. Top and bottom of spine frayed. Contemporary inscriptions on inside front cover and title page. Bookplate of the Alnwick Scientific and Mechanical Institution and small stamp on the title page.

First edition. Layard who "grew up a Romantic, desperate for fame and exotic experiences, and contemptuous of English professional mores", turned his back on steady employ in his uncle's solicitor's office and set of overland to join another uncle in Ceylon. Side-tracked by adventure he set aside his original itinerary and lived for some time in the Bakhtiari Mountains with a tribe resisting the Shah's rule. Whilst returning to Baghdad via Mosul he became convinced that he had discovered the location of Nineveh, persuading Sir Stafford Canning to support his excavations at Nimrud. It was only after his return to England, exhausted and malarial, and the publication of this, his first, book that he realised that Kuyunjik was in fact the correct location, returning there, funded by the British Museum, in 1849.

FIZEAU, ARMAND-HIPPOLYTE-LOUIS; FOUCAULT, JEAN-BERNARD-LEON
Paris: Bachelier, Mallet-Bachelier, 1849. First edition. original wrappers. Fine. FIRST EDITION of the report of Fizeau's famous experiment to determine the speed of light, the first accurate results obtained from a terrestrial experiment. WITH: FIRST EDITION of his rival FOUCAULT'S refinement (two papers), resulting in a measurement of the speed of light within 0.6% of the present-day value. FINE COPIES IN ORIGINAL VOLUME WRAPPERS. "By 1849 Fizeau had developed his own method for measuring the speed of light in air. On the peak of a hill he set up a light source and a spinning gear, arranged so that the light would shine through the gear's teeth. As it spun, the gear would alternately block and unblock the light, so that it would flash. On another hilltop 5 miles (8 km) away he positioned a mirror that reflected the light back to its source. Fizeau spun the gear very fast, so that light passing through one gap in the gear's teeth would travel to the mirror, bounce back, and reenter through the next gap. By using a timer, he was able to determine the amount of time it took light to travel 10 miles (16 km)--the distance between the two hilltops... "Fizeau arrived at the figure of 195,615 miles (315,000 km) per second--a number slightly higher, by about 5%, than that obtained by astronomical means (192,600 mps) but certainly far more accurate than any previous terrestrial method had yielded. The modern figure for the speed of light is approximately 186,000 miles (299,700 km) per second... "In 1862, Foucault outdid his former friend Fizeau when he used Charles … [Click Below for Full Description]

DE BOER, Pieter Anthonie.
The Hague: K. W. Pickhardt, 1849. Octavo (219 x 133 mm). Contemporary Dutch half marbled sheep, smooth spine divided by single gilt fillets, orange paper label, paste paper sides patterned in emulation of tree calf, yellow edges. Binding a little worn at extremities, spine rather dry, old library label removed from head, another label at foot, contemporary library stamp to title page of the Regement Veldartillerie (other stamps and pressmarks to front endpapers), marginal foxing to frontispiece, some light creasing, yet this remains a very good copy, clean and sound. Lithograph portrait frontispiece of Ranjit Singh (printed on india paper and mounted), 3 folding plans (of the battles of Aliwal and Sobraon, positions of the British army in 1845-46), large folding map of the Punjab (based on Allen's Sketch Map) loose but present, all by K. W. Pickhardt, printed by E. Spanier. First edition and only edition of this scarce Dutch "military and historical view of the Punjab, the nation of the Sikhs and the empire of Lahore, from the earliest times" down to the First Anglo-Sikh War (1845-46). The author, P. A. de Boer (1818-1847), is described on the title page as a second-lieutenant with the Rijdende Artillerie (Horse Artillery) and appears to have been a modest and model pupil, in 1837 passing out first in his officer class of 25 at The Hague. His work was published posthumously and edited from his papers by his father, the retired colonel of artillery Dirk de Boer, who, as a captain in the late 1820s, experimented with rocket design. The bibliography shows that de Boer drew on … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bermondsey Horror]. [Manning, Maria
T. Gill, 1849. FIRST EDITION. Softcover. 16mo. 48 pp. Very sympathetic recent drab wrappers, paper title label on front wrapper. First and last page soiled, some foxing or staining here and there. Very good. The case of the "Bermondsey Horror" involves one of the most infamous trials in 19th-century England; the execution of the guilty woman and her husband by hanging occasioned public outrage from Charles Dickens and many other "decent" citizens. THE CASE: Marie Manning was an alluring 28-year-old Swiss domestic servant who was hanged outside Horsemonger Lane Gaol, London, England, on 13 November 1849, after she and her husband were convicted of the murder of her lover, Patrick O'Connor, in the case that became known as the "Bermondsey Horror." It was the first time since 1700 that a husband and wife had been executed together in England. ¶ THE TRIAL: After the arrest, the accused were moved from Horsemonger Lane to Newgate prison for the trial which opened at the Old Bailey (next door to Newgate) on Thursday, the 25th of October before Chief Justice Cresswell and lasted two days. Both were represented by counsel and the respective lawyers tried to shift responsibility for the killing from their client to the other's client. It seemed that both Frederick and Maria each expected the other to shoulder responsibility but neither would. At the end of the trial, it took the jury 45 minutes to find them both guilty. Maria lost the composure she had shown during the trial and screamed at the jury "You have treated me like a wild beast of the forest." She continued to rave at the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Levis Family]: [Papermaking]
[Delaware County, Pa.], 1849. [180]pp. Oblong 16mo. Contemporary calf. Front board and first few leaves detached; wear to boards, corners bumped. Pencil annotations on front and rear pastedowns. Interior quite clean. Overall very good. A fascinating record of papermaking and related expenses from the Levis family of Pennsylvania during the late 18th and mid- 19th centuries. The two date ranges represented in this volume are noteworthy - showing the activities of a papermaking firm in the early years of the American republic, and then fifty years later when industrialization was transforming the craft. This receipt book records a variety of transactions, noting the Levis family member paying or receiving the funds, the amount paid or received, the material or services sold or paid for, and the name of the person paying or receiving the funds. In numerous cases, their signature or mark is included as well. Several transactions are repeated, and a few individuals reappear throughout the receipts. There is a significant gap in dates indicating that the book had been set aside in 1797, and then put back into service again in 1841 for reasons that are not revealed in this volume. Surely they did not want for paper, but perhaps did not want to waste space in an otherwise perfectly good receipt book. The Levis family was extensive, and active in a variety of industries over the years, starting with Samuel Levis, a maltster from Leicester, England, who first settled on Darby Creek in 1684, on land he purchased from William Penn. His son, Samuel, was the first Levis family member to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Frankfort, Kentuck: 1849 KENTUCKY CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION SIGNATURE BOOK with SIGNATURES of 95 COUNTY REPRESENTATIVES, plus Sergeant at Arms, Reporters, etc. The Constitutional Convention signatory Sign In notebook was owned by THOMAS N. LINDSEY, member of the notable LINDSEY FAMILY of FRANKFORT KENTUCKY. Thomas N. Lindsey was the Representative of Franklin County, Kentucky. His signature is on the backside of the first page. The Signature Book is 3x5 inches and filled with blank paper. Lacking the front cover, however the spine covering and rear cover are present, as are all the inner pages. It appears likely that Thomas N. Lindsey was responsible for getting the signatures of the attending Representatives and others at the Kentucky Constitutional Convention of 1849 (that led to the adoption of the Constitution of 1850). He signed his name clearly on the verso of the first page, and I believe also on the back cover though that signature is very difficult to see. Though the notebook pages were blank, Lindsey wrote 3 numbers on a page up to number 100, leaving space by each number where Representatives signed in and identified themselves by county. 94 Representatives signed in and most wrote the county they represented below their signature, some also wrote the city they were from. The spaces beside numbers 95-100 are blank. However, Thomas N. Lindsey, the representative from Franklin County, signed at the front as noted above, meaning that this notebook contains a total of 95 signatures of the Constitutional Convention Representatives. Many of the signatures are accompani … [Click Below for Full Description]
