      1849. RUSKIN, John.The Seven Lamps of Architecture. WITH: The Stones of Venice. Three volumes. WITH: Modern Painters. Five volumes. WITH: RUSKIN, John. Autograph letter to George Allen, dated October 11, 1875 and initialed.London: Smith, Elder, 1849; 1851-1853; 1851-1860.In all, nine volumes.Lovely collection of three of Ruskin?'s major works (The Seven Lamps of Architecture and The Stones of Venice in first edition), illustrated with over 150 full-page engravings and beautifully bound in rich contemporary morocco by Zaehnsdorf. Accompanied by an original autograph letter from Ruskin to artist, engraver and friend George Allen, regarding the engraving of one of Ruskin?'s drawings and the distribution of several publications, initialed ?"J.R.?"John Ruskin, writer, critic, and artist, was the foremost dictator of public taste in Victorian England. The Seven Lamps of Architecture, The Stones of Venice and Modern Painters remain three of his most popular and influential works. In them, he champions the Gothic Revival movement in art and decoration, and first puts forward the idea that the Gothic style was supreme for its truth to nature and its moral force. ?"Taken in the mass, these volumes contain the most valuable contributions to art-literature the language can show… they contain worlds of thought, imagination, and knowledge such as no other art-writer can educe… It is impossible but that Art should be the better for them?" (Allibone, 1895). This collection includes the first edition of The Seven Lamps of Architecture, the first edition of The Stones of Venice, and mixed editions of Modern Painters. ?"Clouds, mountains, landscapes, towers, churches, trees, flowers and herbs were drawn with wonderful precision, minuteness of detail and delicacy of hand, solely to recall some specific aspect of nature or art, of which he wished to retain a record. In his gift for recording the most subtle characters of architectural carvings and details, Ruskin has hardly been surpassed by the most distinguished painters?" (NNDB). Artist and engraver George Allen, to whom the accompanying autograph letter is addressed, joined a class in drawing taught by Ruskin at Working Men?'s College in 1854, and soon became Ruskin?'s assistant. He later resigned his other positions to devote his talents entirely to engraving Ruskin's works. ?"Ruskin wrote in all over 1,300 letters to George Allen— the men were close friends and their correspondence contains both personal matters and those relating to art and business?" (Columbia University). In this letter, Ruskin discusses ?"the drawing for our first plate, [which he would have sent earlier], but the feather when finished, got a great blot from the ivory ruler! and had to be scratched and repaired… I have no doubt your engraving will be beautiful— my hand shakes a little now with age, or tea drinking, and much spoils my work.?"A fine collection, beautifully bound and illustrated, with splendid autograph letter.

        [AUTOGRAPH NOTE, SIGNED, BY J.W. JUDD, TO GUY R. PHELPS, REGARDING A LIFE INSURANCE POLICY FOR LANGDON H. HAVENS, A FORTY-NINER AND MEMBER OF JOHN WOODHOUSE AUDUBON'S ILL- FATED OVERLAND EXPEDITION TO CALIFORNIA IN 1849]

      New York. Jan. 29, 1849.. [1]p. of a bifolium, docketed on verso of second bifolium leaf. Mailing folds, slight edge discoloration, else fine. An intriguing note regarding life insurance for a forty- niner traveling to California in 1849 with Henry Webb and John Woodhouse Audubon. The note reads, "Langdon H. Havens wants a [life insurance] permit for California to go over the Overland Route in company with persons bearing dispatches from our Government, in a Company of 100 or more. He wants to leave for Washington immediately...." Perhaps the twenty-six-year-old Haven (sometimes spelled Havens) originally intended to join a safe government-sponsored expedition from Washington, but he was in fact among the 100 Forty-Niners who embarked on a famously ill-fated overland expedition, led by Army Colonel Henry Webb, with John Woodhouse Audubon, son of the famous ornithologist, as his second in command, which left New York on Feb. 8. ^The company proceeded by ship, train, stagecoach and riverboat to New Orleans and from there by steamer across the Gulf of Mexico to the mouth of the Rio Grande, where they arrived on March 13 - an odd overland route dictated by Webb, a veteran of the Mexican War. There disaster struck. A dozen men died of cholera, the company's money was stolen, and leadership conflict led Webb to leave the company with a dozen followers. Some of the remaining stalwarts, including Haven followed Audubon onward, trekking for seven months through Mexico and Arizona, the survivors finally reaching San Diego in November. Some then took a boat to San Francisco; others continued overland to the gold fields. As meticulously recorded by Audubon, a naturalist and painter in his own right, the entire venture has gone down in history as "one of the most poorly-planned" Forty-Niner expeditions "on record." Haven, though nearly dying en route, was one of the fortunate few who "made it to California." An appealing note, dated in the famous year of the California Gold Rush, that eerily anticipates the dangers inherent in overland travel in America in the 19th century.

        THE CALIFORNIA AND OREGON TRAIL: BEING SKETCHES OF PRAIRIE AND ROCKY MOUNTAIN LIFE

      New York. 1849.. 448pp. including 2pp. of ads. Contemporary three-quarter black polished calf and boards, gilt-lettered spine. Rubbed. Foxing and dampstaining throughout. Lacks the frontispiece and advertisements. Contemporary ownership signature on front pastedown. A fair copy. A rare variant state of the first edition of this classic of the Overland Trail, with no frontispiece or engraved titlepage, or advertisements following page 448, but the type on pages 436-437 is clean and undamaged. Wagner- Camp lists this as a variant of the first printing, and Howes hypothesizes that "this 'freak' variant was probably one of the 6 special copies sent by the pub. to Parkman." One of the classics of western travel literature, Parkman's work may be the most familiar piece of that genre to modern readers. The exciting adventures of the young Boston Brahmin loose on the plains make excellent reading. Field remarks: "Mr. Parkman had all the genuine love of adventure of a frontiersman, the taste for the picturesque and romantic of an artist, and the skill in narration of an accomplished raconteur. It is not too high praise to say that his pictures of savage life are not excelled...." WAGNER-CAMP 170:1a. HOWES P97, "b." BAL 15446. COWAN, p.474. RADER 2608. MINTZ 359. RITTENHOUSE 450.

        Cosmos: A sketch of a physical description of the universe

      London: Henry G. Bohn 8vo (18.8 cm, 7.4"). 5 vols. I: Frontis., xvii, [1], ix, [1], 369, [3], 18, 40 (adv.) pp. II: xxi, 370–742, 16 pp. III: [6], 289, [1], 8, 32 (adv.) pp. IV: xv, [1], 291–601, [1], 7, [1], 32 (adv.) pp. V: viii, 500 pp.. 1849–58 Early edition of this ambitious translation, done by Elise C. Otté (with assistance from Benjamin Horatio Paul and William Sweetland Dallas for vols. 4 and 5, respectively) and first published in 1845 through 1848, with this edition being part of the "Bohn's Scientific Library" series. The work was written by German naturalist, explorer, and diplomat Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander Freiherr von Humboldt, famed for his scientific observations of Latin America as well as for the present, groundbreaking overview of natural science. Humboldt's exploits and writings served as an inspiration for countless other scientists (including Charles Darwin), and his encyclopedic approach to describing our world as a whole, in terms of all of its natural phenomena, helped launch science's ongoing search for the unifying principles of the universe. This translation caused a bit of controversy: Tipped in at the front of vol. I is a printed rebuttal by Bohn of accusations made by the publisher of a rival translation by Mrs. Sabine, regarding the accuracy of Otté's work — which Bohn defends, of course. Publisher's embossed red cloth, spine with gilt-stamped title and series identification; spines sunned with heads and feet pulled (in one instance chipped), corners bumped, cloth with spots of minor discoloration; vol. V with binding darkened overall and cloth starting at heads of joints. Married set: Vols. I–IV each with institutional bookplate on front pastedown; vol. V from another set, with a different bookplate. Vols. I–IV institutionally rubber-stamped on front free endpapers and title-pages. Many signatures unopened in vols. I–IV; sewing starting to loosen in vol. V.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM EMIGRANT FRED SNYDER TO HIS BROTHER JOHN WHILE EN ROUTE ON THE OREGON TRAIL].

      Near Fort Kearny, Nb. May 9, 1849. - [1]p. plus integral address leaf, addressed on verso. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Moderate soiling and dampstaining, primarily to second leaf. Small paper loss to a few folds, affecting a few words of text. Still, quite legible. Good. Written from the banks of the Platte River in Nebraska, this letter typifies correspondence sent home from the Oregon Trail, reporting on game, grass, Indian encounters, and deaths on the Trail. Given the date and the destination, it is possible that Fred Snyder was a Forty-Niner, headed West to the California gold fields. He writes: "I have just time to inform you that we have travelled about 310 miles from St. Joseph and 800 from St. Louis and are now encamped upon the Platte River between Fort Kearney and Fort Laramie. We are now within 16 days travel from the latter fort. Game is abundant but the grass is poor. I shall take every opportunity to write to you, but I have not heard a word from home since I left nor do I expect to until my arrival in California. Do not forget to direct letters for me to San Francisco by the way of Chagres & Panama. We meet Indians every day and are now in the Paunee country. By tomorrow we shall be among the Sioux. Nicholas Boismenue of Cahokia accidentally shot himself a few days ago and died immediately. He was buried on the Big Blue River. Regards to all." Until the Panama railway was completed in 1855, Chagres, Panama, was the main port of call for travelers who took the sea voyage to California, landing at Chagres and then traversing the Isthmus before boarding a vessel on the other side. A nice letter, illustrative of the emigrant experience on the Oregon Trail.

Publicaba obras clásicas de la literatura española y traducciones de obras extranjeras. Además contenía secciones sobre crítica literaria, teatro, música, y en los últimos números encontramos pasatiempos como el ajedrez. Fernández de los Ríos en La Ilustración no dejó de hacer periodismo de opinión, defendiendo las ideas del partido progresista y atacando los principios tradicionales, que impedían la modernización política del país).

        Noyesism Unveiled: A History of the Sect Self-Styled Perfectionist s; with a Summary View of their Leading Doctrines

      Brattleboro: by the Author, 1849. Octavo, some browning, a fine copy in blind-stamped publisher's cloth, gilt title on spine. First edition: a lurid denunciation of John Humphrey Noyes's famous American utopian community at Putney.Noyes was the charismatic founder of the 'Perfectionist' community in Putney Vermont. Already suspect to Church authorities, Noyes's belief that the Second Coming had taken place was controversial, and his rejection of monogamy in favour of a rigorously controlled 'complex' of marriages, infamous.Noyesism Unveiled, by the otherwise unknown writer Hubbard Eastman, resident of Putney, was one of the key texts designed, as Eastman admitted with alliterative elan, to 'exhibit the pernicious principles propagated by Mr. Noyes and his coadjutors.' Indeed, the outraged locals did compel the Perfectionists to move, which led to the founding of the famous community in Oneida, New York. Oneida flourished for over thirty years, and although it continued to be accused of free love and heathenism, it quickly solidified into a reasonably strict and regimented society, famous for unisex outfits, eugenics, and regular 'criticism sessions' in which congregants were publically humiliated for misdemeanours.

        Portrait de Madame X EDITION ORIGINALE

      S.l.: S.n., 1849. Fine. S.n., S.l. 1849, 60x80cm environ hors cadre, autre. - 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. Note: We do not provide transportation to the work. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Réalisé par Charles Landelle l'un des artistes académiques les plus célèbres et les plus prisés du second empire, ce beau portrait de femme assise dans un fauteuil, reprend tous les codes du genre et montre la forte influence d'Ingres, grand maitre du portrait à son époque, qui ne fut pourtant pas son professeur. Le détail des mains en particulier fait directement référence au style du peintre de l'Odalisque et du Bain turc.  L'oeuvre qui est signée et datée 1849 en bas à droite rappelle également un autre tableau célèbre : Le portrait de la Veuve Cliquot peint par Léon Cogniet deux ans plus tard. Cette année là le peintre expose deux portraits de femme au salon et nous pensons du fait de l'anonymat souvent  public des modèles (simplement titré de l'initiale de leur nom) et du format important de cette peinture qu'il pourrait s'agir de l'un d'entre eux. Né en 1821 à Laval, Charles Landelle s'installe à Paris à l'âge de quatre ans, puis intègre l'École Royale des Beaux-Arts en 1837 comme élève de Paul Delaroche et Ary Scheffer. Au début de sa carrière, Landelle peint plusieurs portraits pour subvenir à ses besoins. Très influencé par la peinture italienne après des voyages dans le Sud de la France et en Italie, il copie quelques toiles des grands maîtres de la Renaissance au Louvre. Médaillé au Salon dès ses premières expositions pour Fra Angelo recevant les inspirations de Dieu (1842) ou Sainte Cécile (1848), il s'illustre par des sujets religieux et historiques qui lui permettent de gagner la reconnaissance de la haute société de son époque. Ses succès critiques au Salon lui assurent vite de nombreuses commandes d'État, notamment Le Repos de la Vierge  en 1854 qui lui vaut d'être décoré de la croix de Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur. Cette même année il réalisa au pastel le portrait d'Alfred de Musset, aujourd'hui conservé au Musée du Louvre. L'artiste embrasse donc une carrière de peintre officiel entre commandes d'État et portraits de membres de la haute société. Capable de s'adapter au goût et aux modes de son temps, Landelle gagne vite une notoriété qu'il sait entretenir, n'oubliant jamais d'offrir un portrait ou une toile à ses bienfaiteurs. Dans la deuxième partie de sa carrière, après que la part officielle de celle-ci se fut quelque peu essoufflée, l'artiste effectue de nombreux voyages au Maroc, en Égypte, en Algérie et se consacre à l'orientalisme qui occupera une grande part de sa production jusqu'à sa mort en 1908. Aujourd'hui un certain nombre de ses oeuvres est conservé en musée. Un fond important a été légué à sa ville d'origine, Laval mais on retrouve également certaines de ses oeuvres au musée du Louvre, au musée Ingres de Montauban, au Musée des Beaux-arts de Grenoble, de Pau, Rouen ou encore au château de Versailles. Attention : Nous n'assurons pas le transport de cette oeuvre.

        Principles of Political Economy with Some of Their Applications to Social Philosophy

      John W. Parker, London 1849 - Two volume set, handsome spines with 5 tooled raised bands, curly gilt motifs in compartments, red leather title labels and green leather author/volume labels. The tan calf leather is powdery in places along edges where rubbed, hinges supple and not threatening to crack, inner hinges tight as well. The boards have blind embossed inner keylines and double gilt outer keylines. Marbled endpapers and marbled text block edges.

You can see two nearly 1cm long by 1mm channels in the leather. The board edges have minor wear perhaps benefiting from a little leather treatment, but OK as-is. The text blocks are tight and generally clean throughout, with a pattern of foxing freckles heading in a few leaves from the ends. Overall a handsome set with lots of shelf appeal and built to last. xvi+611pp, xv+552pp. Size: Royal 8vo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

King's meteorological journal and thus a significant monument to the important Australian. Born on Norfolk Island, King was "the first and for years the only Australian-born to attain eminence in the world outside the Australian colonies" (ADB).Originally published in the sixth number of the Tasmanian Journal (1849), this is a separately issued offprint, identified by its pages being differently numbered for this purpose (from [1] to 4). Such offprints, now as then, are normally produced in small quantities for distribution by the author, usually to no more than a close circle of colleagues or friends.During the years 1817 to 1822 Phillip Parker King extensively surveyed the coastline of Australia, completing the work begun by Matthew Flinders, before returning to England and commanding surveying expeditions to Peru, Chile and Patagonia. King had become a shareholder in the Australian Agricultural Company in 1824, and it was as Resident Commissioner of the company that he took up residence at Tahlee House in Port Stephens at in 1839. Here he built his own observatory from which he made the observations for this journal and for an astronomical journal which he published for the years 1843-1848. Whilst at Port Stephens he also printed, for private distribution, sailing directions for the route to the Torres Strait, a paper on the specific gravity of water, and another on meteorology.Ferguson appears to have made two separate entries for the only copy of the Meteorological Journal he was able to locate (NL). The first entry assumes that the date of publication was 1847 and the later suggests 1849, as the article appeared in the Tasmanian Journal in January of that year. In fact as an offprint this would have preceded journal publication, while the data published by King goes to the very end of 1847; thus 1848 would be the more likely date.

        Puzzle - Map of Asia with Original Wooden Box - Created By Cartographer to Her Majesty Queen Victoria

      London, 1849. London, circa 1849. Map of Asia, being an early map puzzle made by James Wyld, official geographer to Her Majesty Queen Victoria. Accompanied by the publisher's original wooden sliding lid box with label to front and manuscript dedication to underside dated 31 December 1849. Lithograph hand-coloured map dissected into forty-six jigsaw puzzle pieces, assembled and mounted onto wood and sealed with mylar for protection. Box measures approximately 16 x 20 x 5,5 cm. Map measures approximately 36.5 x 43.5 cm. Mildly age-toned; one contemporary replacement piece encompassing the Caspian Sea and Transcaucasia is blank, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a lovely and unique historic map. Replete with obsolete placenames, and presented in an uncommon format, Wyld's map of Asia is especially ephemeral due to frequent border changes in Central Asia, especially around Afghanistan due to the "Great Game" between the Russian and British Empires. Made in the first half of the strategic and ongoing campaigns for domination over Central Asia, a near century long rivalry known as "The Great Game", it predates the Crimean War (of 1853-56) and the Anglo-Persian War (1856-57). The city of Samarkand appears in the broders of Caboul. (The Kingdom of Caboul comprised most of current territories of Afghanistan. In 1868 the Russians conquered Samarkand, which is today a principle in Uzbekistan.) It is also contemporary to the Battle of Tonkin River (20-22 October 1849), a major naval battle fought in northern Vietnam between the pirates of Shap Ng-tsai and the British Royal Navy with aid from the Qing navy and the Tonkinese. In the interest of Arctic regions, the map shows the "Impenetrable Ice Barrier" which prevented Captain Cook and the HMS Resolution from discovering the Northern Sea Route. British naval captain James Cook was the first to see both sides of the Bering Strait (1778) and thus to prove the separation of the continents. Due to large amounts of impenetrable sea ice in the Northeast Passage, as indicated here, it would be a century before Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld would fully traverse the strait, when in 1878-79 he sailed along the northern coast of Siberia and through it. Also on the Russian coast, Novaya Zemlya is not fully charted and Murmansk is not shown (situated northwest of Archangelsk, it was Russia's last city to be founded in 1916.) Also pre-dating the Alaska Purchase (1867) by almost twenty years, the Alaskan coast is shown, although Oomneemak Island (Unimak island) and the remainder of the Aleutian Islands are not fully charted. Valachia appears on this map (Wallachia or Walachia, a historical and geographical region which was for brief periods under Russian occupation between 1768 and 1854, and which became part of Romania in 1859). Little Tartary (now part of Ukraine), Tartaria, and Russian Tartary (Siberia) are also named, as are the Gulf of Tartaria and the Corean Sea (now known as the Sea of Japan, although disputed by Korea.) [As the Russian Empire expanded eastward and more of Tartary became known to Europeans, the term 'Tartary' fell into disuse. European areas north of the Black Sea inhabited by Turkic peoples were known as Little Tartary.] In China principle cities are shown as Pekin, Nankin, and Canton. Wyld also delineates the Great Wall of China from Pekin into the Gobi Desert south of Ortos [Ordos] in Inner Mongolia. Japan is here named Nippon and other placenames include Jesso or Matsmai, which has been known as Hokkaido since 1869, Yedo (Tokyo), and the Loo-Choo islands (now Ryukyu Islands). Other historic names include Ceylon (Sri Lanka), Burma (Myanmar), Siam (Thailand), Cochinchina (now part of Vietnam), Candia (the name for Crete until 1797 when it was part of the Republic of Venice). In northeastern Africa the cartographer includes Nubia (Sudan), Zanguebar (the Swahili Coast), and Ajan (Azania) in the Somalia region of the Horn of Africa. The territory across the Red Sea is marked Arabia Felix. New Holland is a historical European name for mainland Australia. The name was first applied to Australia in 1644 by the Dutch seafarer Abel Tasman. The name came to be applied to whole "Southern land" or Terra Australis, though the coastline of the continent had still not been fully explored; but after the British settlement in Sydney in 1788 the territory to the east of the continent claimed by Britain was named New South Wales, leaving the western part as New Holland. New Holland continued to be used semi-officially and in popular usage as the name for the whole continent until at least the mid-1850s. The origin of the jigsaw puzzle is generally attributed to cartographer and engraver named John Spilsbury (1730- 1769), whom, in 1767, first cut up a wooden map of the world into pieces, devising an educational tool for the aristocracy?'s children to learn the geography of the expansive British Empire. Then called "Dissected Maps," these early wooden puzzles began the history of the jigsaw puzzle. They quickly gained popularity among the upper class in both Europe and America, continuing steadily throughout the 1800s, even rivalling bridge and lawn bowling in the early twentieth century, and often found at parties or in the parlours of weekend estates. James Wyld the younger (1812-1887) was a respected geographer and map seller, and was chosen for the prestigious post of Geographer to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert (so had been his father before him). The son of James Wyld the elder (1790-1836), upon his father's death in 1836, he became the sole owner of the thriving family mapmaking business based in Charing Cross. His maps were regarded highly, and Wyld the younger held his own excellent reputation as a mapmaker, reputed for obtaining and publishing the latest geographical discoveries as soon as they occurred. In 1839 Wyld was elected as a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. By 1854 he had establishments in Charing Cross East, the Royal Exchange, and at 11 and 12 Charing Cross.. Very Good.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM FORTY-NINER ELIJAH EALY TO HIS WIFE, DESCRIBING HIS TRIP ACROSS THE PLAINS TO CALIFORNIA]

      Uba [sic] River, Ca. Sept. 30, 1849.. [3]pp. autograph letter, on a folded folio sheet. Addressed for mailing on the fourth page, with an inked circular "San Francisco Cal. Nov 1" postmark and an ink "40." Old folds. Small tears at several cross- folds, affecting a few letters of text. Paper tanned and lightly stained. Good overall, and quite readable. In a half morocco and cloth folding case, spine gilt. Dr. Elijah Ealy of Dayton, Ohio departed St. Louis in late April 1849, and proceeded to Independence and then St. Joseph. He and his party followed the Platte River Road, but eventually veered south toward Salt Lake City. They arrived in California in mid- September, 1849, and this letter was written from Ealy's camp along the Yuba River in northern California. Ealy died in December 1851, just a little more than two years after writing this letter to his wife. In this letter he recounts the details and hardships of his overland journey in vivid style, giving an excellent description of the challenges he (and thousands others) faced. He writes, in part: "Benj. Kniseley was drowned in attempting to cross the north fork of Platte River....He had a hard time of it, indeed, it is no sport to cross over a barren, sandy & rocky country, as it is from Fort Laramie here. There is no grass except on the water courses & in one place we had neither water nor grass for 60 miles, with the exception of what we carried with us. Cattle died on this desert in great numbers. We did not lose a single mule. And fortunately for the emigrants, the citizens here, have sent out, on all the routes, provisions & cattle to help the emigrants through. Capt. King, McCorkle, the Smiths & others we passed on Humboldts River. King had a fight with the Indians. It appears from what I could learn that they had some of their oxen stolen. A party went out into the mountains in search. They found the Indian thieves & they commenced shooting their arrows. King was wounded in the arm. He succeeded, after a hard struggle in which the Indian seized his rifle & attempted to wrest it out of his hand, in shooting him through the heart. The others in seeing their red comrade fall, took to their heels & were soon out of sight. They were very troublesome & stole away a great many oxen & horses. I saw one company from Missouri that had all their oxen stolen." Ealy goes on to describe their difficulty in obtaining provisions along their overland journey, then turns to the excitement in California over the prospects of riches from mining: "There is great excitement here, in regard to the gold. There is just at this time, a bustle of running from one gold region to another. Great stores are told of men making fortunes in a few days. And I have no doubt many have done so. The fact is gold is abundant on all the streams which rise in the mountains east & south-east of the Sacramento River. And almost every man you see has his little bag of gold....We came to this place 8 days ago, but found the richest diggings all claimed by others. It is only in places that fortunes are to be made, but it is exceedingly hard labour to get it out from amongst the rocks." He then discusses the difficult methods of mining, the high prices for goods, and his plans to go to the "dry diggings" south of Sutter's Fort for the winter. A fine Gold Rush letter, describing the hardships of the overland journey to California and conveying the hopes of riches in the mines.
