        Nigger Melodies;

      New York: Nafis & Cornish, … St. Louis, Mo., Nafis, Cornish and Co.,, c.1849. The Only Entire and Complete Work of Ethiopian Songs Extant. Duodecimo (105 × 71 mm) Slightly later tan morocco, title gilt to the spine, greyish-green and sepia flower-sprigged endpapers, yellow, green and red silk-page-marker. Frontispiece of "James Crow, Esq., de great grandfather ob de Nigger singers", and title-page vignette. A little chafed at the extremities and minor spotting to the boards, light marginal toning, but overall a very good copy. Seemingly first edition, predating editions published by Cornish, Lamport and Co., successors to Nafis & Cornish, around 1851. All early editions uncommon, with perhaps two dozen copies on OCLC, all of them in North America. This copy with the armorial bookplate of Edward Royall Tyler, son of the Rev. Edward Royall Taylor, abolitionist Connecticut Congregational minister whose anti-slavery lectures at the Eliot Street Chapel in Brattleboro in 1837 caused a near riot; "Cannon fired, and all manner of noises made to interrupt the services, no violence, however, offered. At five o'clock, another lecture, and increased noise of Cannon, etc., so much so as to frighten some ladies away from the house, nevertheless Edward proceeded undaunted …" (from Tyler's mother's journal). His son "Ned" Tyler was born in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1842, graduating from Yale in 1865. He spent some time working for the Treasury Department, before practising law for a while. He subsequently gained employment at the Patent Office, starting as the Fourth Assistant Examiner, rising eventually to the position of Principal Examiner.

        [TWO AUTOGRAPH LETTERS, SIGNED, BY AN ENTERPRISING VIRGINIAN, RECORDING HIS OVERLAND TRIP TO CALIFORNIA AND RELATED BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS]

      Baltimore & Santa Fe. 1849.. [4]pp. Two letters, each folded to quarto format. Old folds. Minor stains and single hole in Santa Fe letter, with slight loss to one word, else in fine condition. Two autograph letters, signed, from W.C. Winston, an enterprising Virginian who made the overland journey to California in 1849, to his father, A. Winston at Culpepper Court House in Virginia. Together, the letters describe the journey from Fort Smith, Arkansas to Santa Fe, New Mexico in April and May 1849, and business transactions undertaken in preparation of the journey. The three-page letter describing the overland journey from Arkansas to New Mexico was written from Santa Fe on June 5, 1849. The expedition left Fort Smith on April 11 and with the exception of a few days of rest, travelled constantly until reaching Santa Fe. Winston provides much detail about the landscape and discusses the minimal amount of game encountered along the way. "The first 200 miles of our journey was through a country abundant in grass, wood, & water, the remainder of it with some little exception was ever a perfect desert, almost destitute of all, we were often compelled to carry both wood and water, and camped frequently without either...A small portion of the country only to our disappointment abounded with game, we shot four buffalo, one of which I had the gratification of killing myself, and I also shot an antelope, a very shy and swift animal, its flesh was the best we had on the route." Winston also reflects on the difficulties of the journey and his hopes for the future: "Our journey has been one of constant toil and fatigue, and whilst we have escaped serious indispositions, we have all lost flesh and strength. We entertain the consoling hope that a short time will terminate it, and place us in the Eldorado of the west, where I trust we may be rewarded for our trials." The accompanying one-page letter, written in Baltimore on Feb. 19, 1849, details financial and commercial transactions which W.C. Winston completed prior to his overland journey. He informs his father that "W. Henry Fitzhugh has cashed the note for me at 6 months upon which you are endorsed, W.F. is willing and will stand the time of its payment. This was the best an agreement I could make, I expect to be able to take it up within the year, but first, hope it will give you no great inconvenience." Winston also writes of goods he has bought which he hopes to sell at the end of the journey: "I am completing some purchases here for California, the total with insurance & freight will amount to 2000 dollars. Such things...which profits will most certainly be made, whiskey, a small quantity of other liquor, tobacco, tin, and other wares, some clothing & boots, provisions, machinery, mining implements, etc." A fine pair of letters regarding the overland travel in 1849, with much detail concerning the journey and related business transactions.

Corrodi bezeichnet mit „Porta Romana" die römische „Porta Maggiore" oder auch „Porta Casamari" genannt aus dem 1. Jahrhundert v. Chr., die, wie die hier gezeigte, aus zwei Rundbögen besteht. Bereits 1832 erreichte Corrodi über Genua und Pisa Rom, wo er sich in F.L. Catels (1778-1856) Atelier ausbildete und bald auch zu der von ihm am meisten bevorzugten Malweise, der Aquarelltechnik, fand. In Rom, wo er fast sein gesamtes Leben verbrachte, wurde er von hochgestellten Persönlichkeiten wie z.B. Zar Nikolaus protegiert und war sehr erfolgreich. Auch das englische Königshaus kaufte zahlreiche seiner Werke. Corrodis Haus in Rom war bis zu seinem Tod beliebter Treffpunkt u.a. seiner Schweizer Landsleute.

We have enough wire on hand now and if you can make the necessary arrangements in that quarter for collections & for carrying out that project and just as soon as remittance is sent to me I will ship as much wire as it will purchase. There are already scaled 13 and there will be about 8 more ready by first of March. You will ascertain at what place next wire must be landed. What has been shiped will reach about 84 miles. There being 14 seals. 5 sent to Nashville & 11 to Clarksville, there may be a nearer landing for the next (Wanted) Shipment than Edyville.""Thomas will be at Louisville by the time you get thus and if more money is wanting send to him.

I am making arrangements for building and expect of course to remain here during the next 8 months."" McAfee adds: ""No news of the suit at Washington. P.S.

        Schwerin. Einzug Seiner Königlichen Hoheit des Großherzogs Friedrich Franz (II.) und Ihrer Königlichen Hoheit der Großherzogin Auguste (Prinzessin zu Reuss) in Schwerin am 7. November 1849.

      Berlin 1849. - Lithographie mit Tonplatte von August Achilles. 47,5 x 62 cm. Gedruckt bei Delius in Abgebildet bei Jesse, Bd II Tafel XLVII und in Meckl. Monatshefte, Jg XI S. 82. August Achilles (1798-1861) gilt als Begründer der Lithographie in Mecklenburg, 1830 wurde er zum Hofzeichner ernannt. Er zeigt uns hier den triumphalen Empfang des Hochzeitspaares auf dem Schweriner Marktplatz anläßlich der Vermählung vom 3. November 1849. Im Hintergrund das festlich geschmückte Altstädtische Rathaus, links noch eben angedeutet, das Säulengebäude. "Der Blick auf die Staatskarosse, aus der das junge Fürstenpaar sich freundlich grüßend vorneigt, ist durch die niedere Reihe der Kinder in Landestracht freigegeben." (A. von Langermann. A. Achilles, ein Künstler der alten Zeit. Mit Werkverzeichnis. In Jbb 91, 1927). "Achilles ist ein gewissenhafter Beobachter, der nichts übersieht und mit fast photographischer Treue die Umwelt des darzustellenden Ereignisses wiedergibt. Seine eigentliche Liebe ist aber die Menschenmenge, die er aus einer Fülle scharf beobachteter Einzelwesen zusammensetzt. Man hat das Gefühl, das jede Figur ein Bildnis ist und geht darin selten fehl, denn z. B. auf dem Bilde des Neuen Kollegiengebäudes in Schwerin von 1832 kann der Kenner der Stadtgeschichte noch heute fast jede Figur mit Namen nennen, und den Zeitgenossen wird es bei den verschiedenen Marktplatzbildern nicht weniger möglich gewesen sein."

        Seed Bags and Supplies

      STECHER. Seed Bags and Supplies. 2 pp. Index and 35 chromolithographic plates. Folio, bound in original illustrated wrappers (a small piece missing from the cover). Preserved in a half green morocco box. Rochester: Stecher Litho Co., n.d. A marvelous example of the work done by Stecher for various nurseries in the nineteenth century. This particular format is unusual because each sheet is comprised of 9 illustrated samples of fruit and vegetables, as opposed to the single sample per page that is normally found. The German-born Frank A. Stecher (1849-1916), first set up business in Rochester in 1871, and by 1886, "Stecher was a leader in the chromolithographic industry in Rochester. An 1888 guide to the industries of Rochester noted that the firm [Stecher Lithographic Company] employed 100 people and had machinery valued at $125,000" (Kabelac). No copies found in OCLC.

        The revolution in the mind and practice of the human race;

      or, the coming change from irrationality to rationality.For some years after the collapse of the Harmony experiment Owen had published no really important work. From 1844 to 1850 he had no periodical at his command either and his urge to write was fulfilled by 'The Revolution in the Mind and Practice of the Human Race'."In May 1849 he told her (Mrs Allsop) that he was preparing 'a publication for the upper & middle classes who do not yet understand my view', which was to be accompanied by a cheap edition for the people 'to please Mr Allsop'. This was most likely 'The Revolution in the Mind and Practice of the Human Race', which Marx later described as 'Owen's very important work in which he gave a résumé of his whole doctrine'. The book is also important as it contained Owen's critical remarks on revolutionary politics, especially on the European revolutions of 1848. ... This was perhaps the last important account of his mature thought".

The book is also important as it contained Owen's critical remarks on revolutionary politics, especially on the European revolutions of 1848. ... This was perhaps the last important account of his mature thought". (Chushichi Tsuzuki, Robert Owen and Revolutionary Politics, in 'Robert Owen Prophet of the Poor', 1971, pp.30-32).This copy does not have the Supplement published later in 1849 and found with some copies. 8vo, xxxii + 171 + (1)pp, original green cloth, lettered in gilt on upper cover and spine, small inkstamp of the City of London library on blank field of title-page, and occasionally elsewhere, and with the small inkstamp of the Tate Library in a few margins, but in all other respects a very good fresh copy with only slight wear at head and foot of spine.

An den Schriftsteller Titus Ullrich (1813-1891): "Erst vorgestern empfing ich Ihren lieben Brief vom 25 verflossenen Monats, es blieb nämlich die ganze Zeit im Gasthof zum Deutschen Hause liegen, u. ich wusste es nicht, denn ich wohne nicht dort wie ich früher beabsichtigte.

        The Bowdoin Poets [with manuscript contribution by Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain]

      Brunswick: Joseph Griffin, 1849 - Original gilt decorative cloth in near fine condition. Housed in custom box. With large folding engraved plate of Bowdoin College. Published in two parts. Part I: First appearances of poems by Bowdoin College students, including 4 poems by H.W. Longfellow, a graduate of Bowdoin and a professor there during Fessenden's and Chamberlain's attendance. Part II: 100 pages of 61 manuscript letters written to James Fessenden from his classmates in the classes of 1849, 50, 51, & 52. Most significant is a letter by Fessenden's friend Joshua L. Chamberlain. Both men went on to become distinguished Civil War Generals; Chamberlain was the hero of Little Round Top at Gettysburg, and his bravery and character led General Grant to choose him to be present at the Confederate surrender at Appomatox. Fessenden was commander of the 2nd US Sharpshooters, and later commander of the First South Carolina Regiment of US Colored Troops. The men's principled behavior can clearly be traced back to their education at Bowdoin, as the letters reflect an interest in high moral values. Of the students who wrote these letters, approximately 20 went on to become officers in the Union Army, while others went on to become respected leaders in a variety of fields.

      Wien, 21. VIII. 1849.. 1½ SS. auf Doppelblatt mit Siegel und Adresse (Faltbrief). 4to.. An Joseph Krejci in Prag, Redakteur der Musikzeitschrift "Caecilia": "Euer Wohlgeboren erhalten spät eine Antwort auf Ihren Brief vom 6ten Jänner, worin Sie mir meldeten daß Sie die bereits erschienenen Nummern Ihrer Caecilia samt Musikbeilagen so bald als möglich übersenden wollen; da ich aber bis heute nichts erhielt, auch von der Erscheinung der Caecilia in den öffentlichen Blättern keine Meldung geschah, was zwar bei gegenwärtiger Zeit nicht zu wundern ist: so möchte ich von Ihnen mir Nachricht erbitten, ob Sie vielleicht der jetzigen Zeitumstände wegen die Herausgabe Ihrer Zeitschrift unterlassen wollen. Meine Abhandlung über die Molltonleiter, als Fortsetzung des Ihnen bereits übersandten, ist bereits länger fertig, sobald ich den Druck des frühern Theils erhalten werde, werden Sie meine Fortsetzung erhalten. Zugleich muß ich bemerken daß es mir unsicher scheint, Manuscripte durch die Fahrpost unter Kreuzband zu senden, welches ich bei gedruckten Sachen gar nicht gefährlich finde, weil da immer noch vorräthige Exemplare übrig bleiben, und somit nicht, wie bei Originalschriften, das ganze Werk verloren gehen kann. Jedenfalls ersuche ich Sie, mir zu berichten ob Ihre Cäcilia herauskommt oder ob die der Kunst ungünstigen Zeitverhältniße die Herausgabe derselben nicht gestatten [...]". Sechter wurde von Ludwig van Beethoven und Franz Schubert anerkannt; Giacomo Meyerbeer und Johannes Brahms statteten ihm Besuche ab. Zu seinen Schülern zählen u. a. Anton Bruckner, Henri Vieuxtemps und Sigismund Thalberg. - Stellenweise unbedeutend angestaubt; insgesamt von schöner Erhaltung.

        China and the Chinese: Their Religion, Character, Customs and Manufactures: the Evils Arising from the Opium Trade; with a Glance at our Religious, Moral, Political and Commercial Intercourse with the Country

      London, 1849. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Two volumes. pp xvi, 447; viii, 443, with a coloured frontispiece in each volume. Later half leather, nineteenth century library bookplates on front pastedowns, part of tissue over frontis to volume one missing; slight discoloration to lower spine of Volume I; minor dampstain to inner corners of frontis to Volume II; otherwise very good and sound. A barrister, Sirr (1807-1872) served as British vice-consul at Hong Kong, and later Queen's Advocate for the southern circuit of Ceylon. This work is particularly valuable for its insight into opium use, the opium trade, and the smuggling carried on between Macao, Canton, and Shanghai. Sirr declared opium to be "China's curse" and condemned Britain's role in trade: "By the sale of this pernicious drug Great Britain's sons gain gold; and earn opprobrium for dealing destruction around them, bringing into derison the name of a Christian country, by enabling the Chinese to violate the laws of their own nation, in obtaining the cursed and prohibited poison; the use of which entails destruction mentally and bodily on its infatuated devotees." The work also provides description of Chinese trades and manufacturing, religion, and culture, and argues that Hong Kong is "an unhealthy pestitlential, and unprofitable, barrn rock," but the island of Chu-san is productive and healthful and thus ideal for colonization by the British. Cordier p. 86.
