        Ancient Tyre from the Isthmus.

      London 1849 - Original hand-coloured lithograph on fine paper mounted on card as issued from the subscription edition of Roberts' "The Holy Land". Dimensions: 340 by 495mm. (13.50 by 19.50 inches). David Roberts' magnificent images of Egypt and the Holy Land rank amongst the finest topographical views of the nineteenth century. Roberts made a two-year journey to the Middle-East commencing in 1838, and whilst there executed numerous watercolours from which the finest were selected for the publication; The lithographs were executed by Louis Haghe. In order to help fund the project, Roberts produced a deluxe subscription edition, from which this lithograph was taken, which is notable for being the only edition to have original hand-colour, which would have been executed under the direction of the artist.

Wood engraved frontispiece and 16 plates. Corners rounded, hole through p. 31 affecting a few letters, closed-tear across text at p. 207, some light soiling and foxing. First edition, rare: OCLC locates only 10 copies; there are apparently no copies in British and Irish institutional libraries. Henry Theodore Cheever (1814-1897) was an American theologian and acquaintance of Herman Melville; The Whale is a record of his experiences onboard a whaling ship returning home to Boston from the Hawaiian Islands recounting "tales of whaling in the waters off New Zealand, near Rio de la Plata, and in the Arctic Sea" (Hill). It is a major source book for Moby-Dick (1851), see Encyclopaedia of American Literature of the Sea and Great Lakes, 2001, p. 77. Hershel Parker, in his biography of Melville, suggests that Cheever was also the author of an anonymous stinging review of Moby-Dick in the Congregalionalist organ , the New York "Independent" (Herman Melville: a biography, 2002, p. 25). An inscribed presentation copy from the author's daughter, Elizabeth Bancroft Cheever: nine line inscription on a preliminary blank leaf, to a friend, dated Westbrook [Maine] May 1856.

        [PRINTED "VALLEY NOTE" CURRENCY IN DENOMINATION OF $2.00, WITH PRINTED HEADING: "G.S.L. CITY, JAN, 20, 1849"]

      [Salt Lake City. 1849].. Small printed paper slip, measuring about 2 x 3 3/4 inches. Overall condition is excellent. No serial number. Blanks not filled in, unsigned and unstamped. This small piece of paper money printed by the Mormon Church in Salt Lake City is an example of the earliest recorded printing done in Utah. Called a "Valley Note" by Alvin E. Rust, this form of paper currency was printed in several denominations, using a font of script type of the style used for calling cards. McMurtrie quotes a passage from a manuscript history of Brigham Young which describes the interesting circumstances under which this paper money was printed: "They had gold dust, but many refused to take it, as there was a waste in weighing it for exchange. To meet this want, we employed brother John Kay to coin the dust, but upon trial he broke all the crucibles and could not proceed. I then offered the gold dust back to the people, but they did not want it. I then told them we would issue paper till the gold dust could be coined. The Municipal Council agreed to have such a currency, and appointed myself and President Heber C. Kimball and bishop N.K. Whitney to issue it. The first bill, for one dollar, was issued on the first of this month [January 1849]. The bills were signed by Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, & Thomas Bullock, clerk." The copy in hand is not signed, stamped, or filled out. "It is definite enough that the first use of the press by the Mormon settlers was in January, 1849, for the production of paper currency. Furthermore, it is gratifyingly definite that the first printer was Brigham H. Young, with the perhaps unskilled aid of Thomas Bullock. Brigham H. Young at that time was a young man of about 25, the nephew of Brigham Young the governor and leader" - McMurtrie. Very rare. According to Rust, only 204 valley notes in the two-dollar denomination were issued without a serial number, "rare in unsigned condition." McMURTRIE, THE BEGINNINGS OF PRINTING IN UTAH, pp.13-20.

        Notes and Queries:

      1855 - London - George Bell 1849 - The first twelve volumes of Notes and Queries edited by W. J. Thoms. Bound in half leather and marbled paper-covered boards, with gilt lettering. This set runs from November 1849 through to December 1855Twelve Volumes bound as Six. Notes and Queries is a long-running quarterly scholarly journal that publishes short articles related to English language and literature, lexicography, history, and scholarly antiquarianism. Its emphasis is on the factual rather than the speculative. The journal has a long history, having been established in 1849 in London; it is now published by Oxford University Press. It was founded as an academic correspondence magazine, in which scholars and interested amateurs could exchange knowledge on literature and history. The format consisted of 'Notes' (miscellaneous findings of correspondents that they and the editors considered of interest to the readership), and 'Queries' (and responses to queries), which formed the bulk of the publication. William John Thoms, 1803 1885, was a British writer. Thoms's investigation of folklore and myth led to a later career of debunking longevity myths. Thoms was an antiquary and miscellaneous writer, for many years a clerk in the secretary's office of Chelsea Hospital. He was in 1845 appointed Clerk, and subsequently Deputy Librarian to the House of Lords. Thoms is credited with inventing the word folklore in an 1846 letter to the Athenaeum. He invented this compound word to replace the various other terms used at the time, including popular antiquities or popular literature. He was fond of the works of Jacob Grimm, which he considered remarkable. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. The front inner hinge of volume 1 is strained. The inner hinges of volume 6 have failed. There is mild wear to the extremities, including mild bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright, with very slight browning to the page edges. and the very occasional spot, most prominent to the endpapers. Overall the condition is very good.

        pl. 9 Clarkia Nulchella

      A wonderfully detailed hand-colored lithograph of a wild flower by Jane Webb Loudon (Mrs. Loudon) from her book "British Wildflowers" which was published in London in 1849 by William S. Orr &Co. This print is from the second edition and its overall dimensions are 8.5"x10.75". Jane Webb Loudon (1807-1857) was born in Birmingham, England into a well to do family, but was impoverished as a young woman after her father's financial decline and subsequent death. Loudon developed a simple formula for her botanical works, combining a brief text with charming illustrations, an arrangement that appealed to her audience. For each plant a brief botanical description was provided, including its common name in English, its order and genus. Some historical notes, and instructions regarding its cultivation' (An Oak Spring Flora p.326). Jane Loudon first began her series of popular botanical works in 1838 with the intention of alleviating the debt incurred by her husband, the renowned botanist, gardener, and horticultural writer John Loudon, whom she met after the publication of her best-selling novel The Mummy, Tales for the Twenty Second Century. Having had no prior training in botany, she first learned about horticulture after her marriage, when she assisted her husband with his Encyclopedia of Gardening (1834). Taking a less traditional and more generally accessible approach to the subject, Loudon published her first gardening book, Instructions in Gardening for Ladies, in 1838. She followed this up with a series of five linked titles that could also be viewed as separate works. The first work in the series was published in 1840 and was an immediate success, others followed in 1841, the present work in 1844 (second edition 1849) and the series was completed by two further works in 1846 and 1848.Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing/staining and evidence of previous binding in right margin

        TOPOGRAPHICAL MAP OF THE ROAD FROM MISSOURI TO OREGON COMMENCING AT THE MOUTH OF THE KANSAS IN THE MISSOURI RIVER, ENDING AT THE MOUTH OF THE WALLAH WALLAH IN THE COLUMBIA. IN VII SECTIONS

      [Washington. 1849].. Seven folding maps. Dbd. Very minor wear and foxing. Very good plus. In a blue cloth slipcase and chemise. Second issue of the first map "to show the Oregon Trail accurately" (Rumsey). One of the greatest monuments to the cartography of the American West. This issue of the Preuss map appeared in the Rockwell report, which provided a comprehensive overview of the travel routes between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, overland as well as isthmian sea passages. Charles Preuss, born George Karl Ludwig Preuss in Höhscheid, Prussia in 1803, served as the cartographer on Fremont's first and second expeditions and drew all of the maps which accompany Fremont's reports. Preuss also produced the present masterful map of the Oregon Trail. It is drawn to a very detailed scale, ten miles to an inch, and in addition to providing accurate cartographical information about the whole of the 1,670 mile route between the Missouri and the Columbia rivers, the sheets combine to give a real feeling of the daily progress of the expedition (in 1842 and 1843, between June 10 and October 26) by including indicators of where and when each overnight camp was set, where each noon-day halt was called, and the total distance from the starting point of Westport Landing. Longitudinal and latitudinal coordinates are also given, as are daily "Meteorological Observations" and "Remarks," including notes on the availability of game, water, grazing, and the friendliness (or otherwise) of local Indian tribes. "More than any other persons, John Charles Fremont and Charles Preuss dominate the cartography of the American West during the three years before the gold rush...Owing to its rarity and to its long having stood in the shadow of the more widely known and distributed Fremont-Preuss map of 1845, Preuss' sectional map of 1846 has been insufficiently appreciated by students of Western history. In particular, those interested either in Fremont's travels in 1842-43 or the revolution of the transcontinental wagon roads will find that the map rewards close study" - Wheat.

        The Seven Lamps of Architecture

      Smith, Elder, and Co., London 1849 - This unique edition with all the plates etched by Ruskin (Two bitten in Dijon during his honeymoon) is an extraordinary work of art. Ruskin says he will have all future authorized editions engraved by R.B. Cuff, but this edition with its mezzotint effects is special. (For the authorized Cuff edition, see item ID 98: Seven Lamps., New Edition. 1880.) This 1849 Ruskin work has had its spine rebound in leather; the embossed boards and edges are, apart from a little scuffing and some small spots, in good condition. There are two previous owner's names. Though there is slight browning on the edges of some of the pages, they do not affect the plates which are in fine condition.

        Reply to a Pamphlet Printed at Glasgow, with the Approbation of Clergyman or Different Denominations, Entitled 'Remarks on Mormonism'

      Liverpool: R. James, Printer, [1849]. 16pp. Octavo [22 cm] One large uncut sheet. This work has not been sewn. Fine. First word, line 5 from bottom, p.1: 'pleted'. We are able to locate four institutional copies. Rare. According to Crawley "Orson's 'Reply to a Pamphlet' is largely a point-by-point response and for the most part avoids an exchange or of optics Epithets even as it comments on Paton's lapses in logic or misreadings of 'Divine Authority.' When Paton, for example, declares that "it is one of the established laws of optics, that no mortal eye can, by any possibility, see a spirit," Orson constrains himself to calling Paton sarcastically a "sage philosopher" and asks, "Will this very wise author be so kind as to inform the public by whom this 'law of optics' was discovered, and by what process of reason and demonstration it became an established law?" 'Reply to a Pamphlet' has more than a page in defense of the belief that the Aaronic Priesthood is everlasting and its reestablishment on earth is predicted in the scriptures, and more than four pages in support of the Mormon interpretation of Isiah 29, Ezekial 37, and Revelation 14:6. For a refutation of the Spaulding-Rigdon theory, it refers the reader to Parley Pratt's 'Reply to C.S, Bush' and John Taylor's 'Answer to Rev. Robert Heys.'" Crawley 408. Flake/Draper 6537.

        A View of the Art of Colonization, With Present Reference to the British Empire

      London: John W. Parker, 1849. Octavo, uncut and partially unopened, recent boards with buckram backstrip. Uncut and partially unopened proof copy. Proof copy of Wakefield's major work elaborating the theory of systematic colonization. Both the title page, and drop-title of the text are inscribed 'Proofsheets Confidential' in a cursive hand.The book utilises the device of letters between a "statesman" and a "colonist". Wakefield proposes among other things the creation of a colony in New Zealand to be administered by the Church of England, thus disarming missionary opposition. In fact, the first emigrant ships left for the Canterbury settlement in 1850, and Wakefield himself left for New Zealand in 1853, eventually settling in Wellington. Bagnall notes that 'today, it is chiefly of interest as much for the autobiographical passages as for the oft-repeated theoretical concepts' (5818).From the collection of Dr. Robert Edwards, AO.

        Portrait of Sir Roderick Murchison with his Facsimile Signature]: Rod. I. Murchison.

      George Ransome, Ipswich 1849 - [Ipswich]: [George Ransome], [1849]. Lithograph on Indian paper ca. 33.5 x 24 cm (13.5 x 9.5 inches), with large margins, blind stamp of Ipswich Museum on the lower margin. T. H. Maguire 1849 [signed on stone lower right.]; M. & N. Hanhart, Lith. Printers. With some edge wear, otherwise a very good lithograph. Large lithographed portrait of noted geologist and geographer Sir Roderick Impey Murchison (1792-1871), shown with a hammer and eye-glass on a chord around his neck. "Murchison named and described the Silurian system and travelled extensively throughout Europe and Russia studying geological structures. He was one of the founders and a president of the Royal Geographical Society, director-general of the British Geological Survey and director of the Royal School of Mines and the Museum of Practical Geology" (Wikipedia). "Thomas Herbert Maguire was an English artist and engraver, noted for his portraits of prominent figures. The well-known series of 60 scientific portraits by Maguire was privately commissioned by George Ransome, F.L.S., of Ipswich, in connection with the foundation of the Ipswich Museum (Portraits of the Honorary Members of the Ipswich Museum. Portfolio of 60 lithographs by T.H. Maguire. George Ransome, Ipswich, 1846-1852). They were executed cumulatively between 1847 and 1852, as the Museum obtained fresh scientific sponsors. Some were made by the artist from life, and others from photographic portraits or (in the case of the Revd William Kirby) from an oil portrait. The exact total of this series is slightly above 60 because some (e.g. Edwin Lankester) were re-drawn. Copies of the lithographs were given to subscribing members of the Museum, and a bound portfolio copy of the series was presented by Professor J.S. Henslow to H.R.H. Prince Albert when he inspected the Museum on the occasion of the 1851 Ipswich Congress of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. George Ransome resigned his position as founding Secretary of the Museum in 1852 and the cumulative series was then discontinued" (Wikipedia).

        Lucretia Rudolph?s signed schoolbook, ?Xenophon?s Anabasis? in Greek, with notations in Greek and English by her and James ? both read and spoke Greek. James Garfield's signature on clipped paper laid in to book

      Chester/Hiram, Ohio, 1849- "The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below: Book ?Xenophon?s Anabasis? in Greek with notes in English by C. Anthon, 632 pages, 4.5? x 7.5?. New York: 1847. Signed on the first blank flyleaf ?Lucretia Rudolph.? Tears at left edge of flyleaf. Affixed opposite this page, inside the front cover, is a 2.75? x 1.5? label imprinted ?Inter Folia Fructus / Library of / James A. Garfield.? Bound in leather. Gilt lettering on label on spine. Bumped corners. Some pages foxed and soiled; one section of text block loose. Boards and spine professionally restored to good condition. Signature, ""J A Garfield MC"", on paper cut to 3.5"" X 1.25"", laid in to book. From JamesGarfield.org: ?In 1849, Garfield?s mother persuaded him to enter Geauga Academy in Chester, Ohio, which was about ten miles from his home. During his vacations he learned and practiced carpentry and helped at harvest, he taught and did anything and everything to get money to pay for his schooling. After his first term, he needed no aid from home, he had reached the point were he was self-sufficient. While at Chester, he met a Miss Lucretia Rudolph, his future wife. He was attracted at first by her interest in the same intellectual pursuits, and he quickly discovered sympathy in other tastes and a congeniality of disposition, which paved the way for the one great love of his life.? The ?Anabasis? is the account made by Xenophon of the retreat of the Greek troops that had tried to help Cyrus against Artaxerxes. Following an eight page biography of Xenophon in English, preceding the text in Greek, is a fold-out 11? x 7.5? ?Map to illustrate the Expedition of Cyrus, and the retreat of the Ten Thousand Greeks. Compiled from authentic Documents, By W. Francis Ainsworth? and a 7.5? x 4.5? ?Plan of the Battle of Cunaxa, according to M. de la Luzerne,? each with a tear at lower blank corner. There are notations in pencil in Greek and English in this book, by Lucretia and James. There was a class taught at Geauga in Xenophon?s Anabasis attended by Lucretia and James, although possibly not at the same time. This book was used by Lucretia and possibly by James. It was undoubtedly read by both. J.N. Bundy writes in ?The Nation?s Hero: In Memoriam. The Life of James Abram Garfield? by J.M. Bundy (New York: A.S. Barnes & Co., 1881) about Lucretia and James: ?The acquaintance begun at Chester, many years previous, when both were students at the Geauga Seminary, had ripened into congenial companionship in the studies and reading pursued together at Hiram, where he found her living near the Institute. She became Garfield?s pupil, some time afterward, and recited to him in Latin, Greek, and geometry, as well as in some other branches of study. She was a remarkably fine scholar, with keen perceptions, quick intuitions, and high ambitions. She sympathized with all of Garfield?s strenuous struggles for a college education. She was his complement and better self. Their union was inevitable, and they were engaged in 1854, just as Garfield was about to set out for Williams.? On November 11, 1858, James A. Garfield and Lucretia Rudolph were married."
