        "Festgesang". Autograph musical manuscript signed. Graz, June 1849.

      Oblong folio. Title, 6 numbered pp. on folded sheets. Ink on paper. Sewn. Song for Soprano and Alto with piano accompaniment ("Hör, o Würdigster, der Kinder Dankeswort"), entitled "Festgesang für 2 Singstimmen mit Begleitung des Pianoforte componirt von Anselm Hüttenbrenner mpr. Grätz 1849" (above the notes: "Worte u. Musik von Anselm Hüttenbrenner mpr., im Juni 1849"). From Hüttenbrenner's late period, when he had already retreated from the Steiermärkischer Musikverein to his Rosenegg estate near Graz. "After his wife's death in 1848, he gradually sank into the habits of a recluse [...] His compositions include operas, sacred and secular vocal music, symphonies, overtures, chamber music, keyboard music and solo songs; few of his works were published, though most survive in MS. Many of his songs are melodious and have accompaniments that reflect the text; they appear to have been modelled on Beethoven's songs, rather than those of Schubert" (New Grove VIII, 829). - Traces of vertical folds. Collector's acquisition notes (dated 6 Dec. 1880) on verso of final leaf; title stamped by the Graz organist and Mozart scholar Ludwig Carl Seydler (cf.

        Le Collier de la Reine [The Queen's Necklace]

      Meline, Brussels 1849 - 6 vols. 1st edition (?), following the 1849-1850 serial in La Presse's newspaper (a newspaper is what generation Z call a hobo laptop), and roughly parallel to 5 other Brussels editions, one from Leipzig, one from Berlin, 2 partial ones from New York in French, and Cadot's 11 vol. Paris edition. Here is the cut and thrust of your one ride per catalog on the bibliographical hamster wheel. Munro (the bibliographer) decided to project his chronology from an unreliable canon of how few volumes were dated 1850, but in a giddy fit of fang bibliography, he did so steriley, and listed 2 unfinished NY editions as the 1st of all (being incomplete, they didn't issue any volumes in 1850). And he stated, "they were certainly unfinished" but then assigned order as if they were, without proof that even one of their volumes was issued first. So, he was only correct that the NY publishers completed printing first, but that advantage always resides with those who quit on a book before the final chapters are written. And it descended from there. He abandoned precision, in this case, and wrongly applied his own math. For one example, Lebègue's Brussels edition that Munro listed 6th, would be the real 1st based on his own arithmetic, with just 29% of it dated 1850 (all the others more, with ours at 50%), so I know his chronology is wrong for this title, from any perspective. Complicating matters, Meline, our set's publisher, also issued a 7 vol. 1849-1850 edition, but Munro rightly says that our 6 vol. edition precedes it. Contemporary 1/2 dark green morocco, red labels, vol. II label 20% chipped, spines darkened, paper sides rubbed else very good, complete with half-titles. OCLC found 10 sets in libraries, ABPC says none sold at auction, but the OCLC stats better reflect reality. The second book in Dumas' 4 novel series charting the French Revolution, the reign of terror, and its immediate aftermath, that beheading of thousands of poor human beings in the name of some pitiless abstraction. His plot pierces a byzantine conspiracy trained on Marie Antoinette, using diamonds as the bait, propaganda as the aim, and a necklace as a marker for the guillotine. It's written in Dumas' consummate style, and flings its light over the prelude to a horror that was worse than the day Miley decided to stop following you on Twitter. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Veronica's Veil

      , 1849. 1849. The Holy Face of Jesus or St. Veronica's Veil, printed on fabric and with the wax seal and attestation and also a separate document with signature and wax seal. According to tradition, St. Veronica was a woman of Jerusalem who wiped the face of Jesus Christ with a veil while he was on the way to Cavalry. The cloth was said to be imprinted with the image of Jesus' face and later taken from the Holy Land and used to cure Roman Emperor Tiberius from the 1st century. It was later seen in the 8th century in Rome and given to St. Peter's Basilica under Pope Boniface VIII. During the Italian Revolution of 1849, when Pope Pius IX had to flee Rome, he ordered the Holy Veil to be publicly exhibited. On the 3rd day of the exhibit, the face of Jesus that had been a very faint image, became clearly visible and appeared to be alive, surrounded by a soft light. Pius IX ordered the Canon of St. Peter's to have an accurate drawing made of the image and imprinted on linen cloths, which were touched to the original relic, therefore becoming a 2nd class relic, and distributed in limited manner. A Latin phrase appears below the image and reads, "True image of Holy Face of Our Lord Jesus Christ, which in Rome, in the most Holy Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican is most religiously observed and venerated." The other document included attests to the same, and issued by the Canon of St. Peter's Basilica, 1896, fifteenth year of the Reign of Pope Leo XIII and signed by Canon.

        AN ADVENTUROUS WOMAN'S TRAVEL LETTER RECOUNTING A HAZARDOUS JOURNEY BY STAGE AND RAILROAD TO THE ONTARIO FEMALE SEMINARY DURING A HORRENDOUS WINTER STORM franked with A VERY FINE 1847 U.S. TEN-CENT WASHINGTON STAMP; Four-page folded letter from Abby Wells sent from Canandaigua, New York to her parents in Deerfield, New Hampshire

      Canandaigua, New York 1849 - This four-page folded letter measures 15" x 9.5" and has a red Canandaigua postmark dated January 10. It is franked with a nicely centered, very fine black 10-cent Washington stamp (Scott #2) tied with a red grid cancel. Complete but fragile as some folds have developed splits. There is an old tape stain and remnants of stamp hinges on the reverse. In January, Abigail Wells departed Deerfield, New Hampshire accompanied by her older brother, David, on her way to attend the Ontario Female Seminary in Canandaigua, New York. After no more six hours on the road, a massive storm struck the area, snowing them in for six days. On the seventh, their stage reached Albany, where David returned home and Abby continued on one of the country's earliest railroads to Canandaigua. "I left Milford in the stage 10 o'clock Friday morning and arrived at Brattleborough at half past ten in the evening . . . and before we arrived the snow had fallen to a considerable depth. . . . the driver stopped and told the gentlemen that the horses were in the snow and they must get out and assist him. . . . Brother D. took the [reins] while the driver and another man trod a path for them. We rode a half a mile and came to a public house, and stopped [as] the storm continued with unabated violence. Monday and Tuesday the roads were so blocked up with snow as to be rendered impassable. Wednesday we . . . rode about 15 miles. Thursday we started early and arrived at Albany at eight. . . . The next morning I started alone . . . from Albany to Schenectady . . . in cars without any fire. . . . At Syracuse we changed cars again. . . . We stopped in Geneva to breakfast. I felt so tired that I thought I would not eat anything. . . . I arrived at Canandaigua at 9 o'clock Saturday just 24 hours [after departing] Albany. . . . I should not be afraid to return alone if necessary. I did not suffer scarcely any with the cold excepting my feet. . . . I have great cause for gratitude to my Heavenly Father for his protection during my long and in some respects dangerous journey.". The Ontario Female Seminary, one of the country's first women's schools, enrolled about 100 boarders. Its course of instruction included basic subjects as well as advanced instruction in grammar, botany, chemistry, algebra, and astronomy. In a postscript to her letter, Abby noted that "The studies I shall attend to this term are Geometry, Algebra, Paley's Theology and Grammar." Upon graduation, Abby returned to Deerfield and taught school until she retired around the age of sixty. She never married but remained single and lived in her family's home along with several siblings until she died at the age of 68 in 1887. This is a superb example of one of the first and most important U. S. stamps on cover made all the more desirable by an independent woman's narrative recounting her harrowing 8-day journey by stage and early train in the middle of a tremendous winter storm in order to attend advanced schooling.

        Three Engraved Cards Published After the Murder of Patrick O'Connor and Before the Subsequent Trial of Frederick and Maria Manning.

      J.T. Wood. [1849] Each card with caption. 14.5 x 11.5cm. v.g.A grim relic of the Victorian souvenir trade, illustrating the three protagonists in a celebrated crime of the 19th century which became known as the 'Bermondsey Horror'. On 9th August 1849, Maria Manning, a Swiss domestic servant, and her husband Frederick Manning, a publican, dined with Patrick O'Connor, a wealthy exciseman and, according to some accounts, Maria's lover. The only hospitality on offer however, was murder, and having killed O'Connor, the Mannings buried him under the kitchen floor before robbing his home and fleeing London. Maria and Frederick fled separately having apparently double crossed each other and were caught in Edinburgh and Jersey respectively. They were tried at the Old Bailey, found guilty, and executed. The public hanging, the first time a husband and wife had been executed together in England since 1700, drew a delirious and blood thirsty crowd witnessed first hand by Charles Dickens. He wrote to The Times the following day: 'I believe that a sight so inconceivably awful as the wickedness and levity of the immense crowd collected at that execution could be imagined by no man and could be presented in no heathen land under the sun. The horrors of the gibbet and of the crimes which brought the wretched murderers to it, faded in my mind before the atrocious bearing, looks and language, of the assembled spectators'. The sight of the execution and its crowd accelerated Dickens's campaign for the abolition of public executions. The murder itself inspired Dickens to write the character of Mademoiselle Hortense, Lady Dedlock's maid in Bleak House, and Wilkie Collins referred to the Mannings in The Woman in White. The three cards are unusual in that they are published prior to the trial itself, exposing a broader market for criminal ephemera that exceeds simply the bloodlust of newspaper reports, trials and execution. Maria Manning is pictured in a black satin dress. It was rumoured that due to her wearing black lace at her execution the material went out of fashion for many years.

        Archive of Unpublished Chinese Manuscripts, Pertaining to the History of Amoy , Translated into English By William Raymond Gingell, Sinologist, Interpreter and Consul in China.

      Amoy [Xiamen], Foochow [Fuzhou], 1849-1854, 1849. Unpublished Translations of Chinese Texts, comprising what appears to be the only translation of the "History of Amoy" which contains texts dated as early as 1788 and which predates the work for which Gingell is best known [an abridged translation of the Chow Le classic, completed in 1852]; also presenting a wide array of subjects surrounding customs, ancient inscriptions, government, riots and civil wars, by his translations of several short accounts and decrees by difference Chinese writers or offices; as well as a traditional Chinese calendar. Together with a contemporary manuscript letter to Gingell from the Consul at Foochowfoo containing praises from British diplomats for Gingell's work on the History of Amoy, double folio leaf, 2 pages. Together with some original Chinese texts in manuscript and in print, 17 pages combined. History of Amoy manuscript translation: Qto. approximately 300 pages, string-tied in five parts (one part in duplicate), penned to rectos only on blue leafs watermarked J. Whatman and J. Gater 1845 and measuring approximately 24,5 x 20,5 cm. Other manuscript translations: Varied sized leafs, approximately 485 pages combined, each account titled and string-tied separately, also on blue watermarked leafs measuring approximately 24,5 x 20,5 cm. Some creasing, otherwise in very good condition, exceedingly early manuscript documents made in China. Only one of the shorter translations in the present archive is known to have been published (Forms of Ceremonial suitable to be adopted in the Fokien Province on the occasion of the Dowager Queen...). All others appear to be unpublished. The earliest and most substantial of Gingell's unpublished works in the present archive are his translations of eighteenth and nineteenth century Chinese texts compiled and published by a Chinese historian in a monumental sixteen volumes, here headed "History of Amoy" and partially translated into English by Gingell in a manuscript work-in-progress. This work is accompanied by a manuscript letter addressed to Gingell, 15 November 1849, by the Consul of Foochowfoo Richard B. Jackson who relays praises for the work on the history of Amoy Throughout this substantial and already detailed work, Gingell adds explanatory notes, and writes names of places and people in Chinese characters beside the English. The first volume consists of "Imperial Discourses" pertaining to Qing ruled Formosa - providing a rare opportunity to study the matter from the Chinese perspective. Simply titled "Amoy" the second volume concerns the history of the city, especially its fortifications through army and naval defences, the distribution of military stations, the erection of a walled castle on Xiamen Island by Zhou Dexing in 1387, and the like. Volume three is titled "Research into the Military Regulations" which ultimately serves to provide an understanding of the so-called "sea barriers or sea fences" of Amoy. Volume four is essentially a detailed nautical guide imparting practical information for safe navigation between the Pescadores Islands [Penghu] and into the bays of the Formosa Strait [Taiwan], for passage to and from Amoy [Xiamen]. Volume seven deals with customs and duty tariffs, addressing matters such as prohibition, fixed duty servants, land revenue, salt duty, and the Amoy Customs House. . Manuscript.

        ADVENTURES OF THE FIRST SETTLERS ON THE OREGON OR COLUMBIA RIVER

      London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1849. FIRST EDITION. As the extended title indicates, this work comprises "a narrative of the expedition fitted out by John Jacob Astor, to establish the 'Pacific Fur Company'; with an account of some Indian tribes on the coast of the Pacific." Alexander Ross (1783-1856) was for many years a participant in the grand adventure of opening up the Pacific Northwest to the fur trade. His reminiscences open not long after the Lewis and Clark expedition, with the sailing of the Tonquin in 1810 around the horn. The founding and building of Astoria at the mouth of the Columbia are described, as well as expeditions on the Columbia and Snake rivers. Ross is particularly fascinated by the Indian tribes he encounters, and much of his work is devoted to describing their ways. Cowan says that the "narrative presents interesting pictures of the life of the early American fur-trader, with its charm and romance," and Wagner-Camp quotes Elliott Coues as calling this item "one of the three 'synoptical gospels' of the Astoria enterprise," the others being the narratives of Gabriel Franchere and Ross Cox. It is unusual to find a copy with the ads at the end.. 200 x 120 mm. (7 7/8 x 4 3/4"). xv, [i]. 352, 16 (ads) pp. FIRST EDITION. Period-style half calf over marbled boards. With a folding map of the Columbia River and Oregon Territory. Title page with signature obscured by correction fluid. With 16 pages of ads for Smith, Elder books bound in at the back. Graff 3576; Howes R-448, "Aa"; Sabin 73327; Streeter Sale 3713; Wagner-Camp 172; Wheat, Transmississippi West 635. Short split at tail of one map fold (reinforced by archival tape on verso), paper stock a little yellowed (no doubt as with all copies), isolated trivial small stains, but A NEARLY FINE COPY, the smooth and fresh text entirely without foxing, and the retrospective binding unworn.

        A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers.

      Boston and Cambridge: James Munroe and Company, 1849 - Duodecimo (197 × 122 mm) in sixes. Original brown cloth (BAL binding variant T, trade binding), title gilt to spine with blind rules forming compartments filled with arabesques in blind, blind panels to the boards, buff endpapers. Housed in a burgundy cloth flat-back box by the Chelsea Bindery. Slight wear at the extremities, the spine chipped head and tail, but the publisher's name still largely legible at the tail, free endpapers irregularly discoloured, last 3 leaves torn along the bottom margin, no loss of text. A very good copy. First edition of Thoreau's first book. Thoreau published at his own expense an edition of 1,000 copies: less than 300 sold, and in 1853 the remainder was returned to him - 256 bound up and 450 in sheets - prompting his rueful journal entry: "I have now a library of nearly 900 volumes, over 700 of which I wrote myself." The present copy has the three lines of text which were dropped from the bottom of p. 396 by the printers supplied in pencil in a contemporary hand, as also the corrections at pp. 94, 120, and 139. The advert leaf advises that "Will soon be published, Walden or Life in the Woods ", but due to the commercial failure of his first work it was not until 1854 that the latter was finally published by Ticknor and Fields. Allen, p. 1; BAL 20104; Borst A1.1.a; Howes T220. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Portrait de Madame X...

      Directed by Charles Landelle one of the most famous academic artists and most popular of the Second Empire, this beautiful portrait of a woman sitting in a chair, includes all the codes of the genre and shows the strong influence of Ingres, the great master of portraiture in his time, which was not yet his teacher. Details of hands especially direct reference to the style of the painter of the Odalisque and Turkish bath. The work is signed and dated 1849 lower right also recalls another famous painting: Portrait of Veuve Cliquot painted by Leon Cogniet two years later. That year the painter shows two portraits of women at the show and we think because of the anonymity often public models (simply titled the initial of their name) and the large size of this painting that could be one of them. Born in 1821 in Laval, Charles Landelle moved to Paris at the age of four years, then joined the Royal School of Fine Arts in 1837 as a student of Paul Delaroche and Ary Scheffer. Early in his career, Landelle painted several portraits to support himself. Strongly influenced by Italian painting after trips to the South of France and Italy, it copies some paintings of the great masters of the Renaissance to the Louvre. Medals at the Salon from his earliest exhibitions Fra Angelo receiving the inspirations of God (1842) and St. Cecilia (1848), he distinguished himself by religious and historical subjects that allow him to win the recognition of the high society of his time. His critics assure him success at the Salon soon numerous state commissions, including The Rest of the Virgin in 1854 which earned him to be awarded the Cross of Knight of the Legion of Honor. That same year he produced pastel portrait of Alfred de Musset, now in the Louvre. The artist thus embraces a career official painter between state controls and portraits of members of high society. Able to adapt to the tastes and fashions of his time, quickly gaining a reputation Landelle he knows how to maintain, never forgetting to provide a portrait or a painting to its benefactors. In the second part of his career, after the official portion of it is was somewhat out of breath, the artist traveled extensively in Morocco, Egypt, Algeria and is dedicated to Orientalism that will occupy much of its production until his death in 1908. Today a number of his works are preserved in the museum. An important background was bequeathed to his hometown of Laval but there are also some of his works in the Louvre, the Ingres Museum in Montauban, the Museum of Fine Arts in Grenoble, Pau, Rouen or the castle Versailles.
