        History of the Sikhs

      1849 - (INDIA) CUNNINGHAM, Joseph Davey. A History of the Sikhs, from the Origin of the Nation to the Battles of the Sutlej. London: John Murray, 1849. Octavo, modern full brown calf, raised bands, burgundy morocco spine label. $4800.First edition, with map of Punjabi political divisions until 1803 outlined in color, color folding map of Punjabi political divisions after the treaty of 1846, and folding genealogical table of the Gooroos, handsomely bound.Cunningham joined the Bengal Engineers in 1831 and arrived in India in 1834. "In 1837 he was selected by Lord Auckland to join Colonel Claud Wade, who was then the political agent upon the Sikh frontier, as assistant, with the special duty of fortifying Firozpur, the agent's headquarters. This appointment brought him into close connection with the Sikhs, and, as he spent the next eight years of his life in political employments in this part of India, he was able to obtain that thorough knowledge of their manners and customs which makes his History of the Sikhs one of the most valuable books ever published in connection with Indian history. In 1838 he was present at the interview between Lord Auckland and Runjeet Singh, the great Sikh chieftain; in 1839 he accompanied Colonel Wade when he forced the Khyber Pass, and he was promoted first lieutenant on 20 May in that year; in 1840 he was placed in charge of Ludhiana, under G. Russell Clerk, Colonel Wade's successor, and as political officer accompanied Brigadier-general Shelton and his army through the Sikh territory to Peshawur on his way to Cabul, and then accompanied Colonel Wheeler and Dost Muhammad, the deposed ameer of Afghanistan, back to British territory; in 1841 he was sent on a special mission to the principality of Jammu; in 1842 he was present at the interview between Lord Ellenborough and Dost Muhammad and the Sikhs". He spent four years on [the History], and on its publication in 1849 it was received with the greatest favor by the English press, a verdict which posterity has ratified, for it is universally recognized as the one authority upon the subject. But though this history made his name as an historian, it brought him into deep disgrace with his superiors. In his last chapter he treated of the history of the first Sikh war, and in it he made use of the knowledge he had obtained while acting as political agent with the army in the field, and distinctly asserted that two of the Sikh generals, Lal Singh and Tej Singh, were bought. Both Lord Hardinge and Colonel Henry Lawrence, who had acted as political agent after the death of Major Broadfoot, asserted that there had been no private negotiations with any of the Sikh leaders; but the confidential position which Cunningham had held, and still more his disgrace which followed, are strong arguments that such negotiations did pass" (DNB). As a result of the controversy, Cunningham was stripped of his authority and ordered to go on regular regimental duty. He lost most of his income in the process and any possibility of political advancement. Indeed, the publication of The History of the Sikhs marked the end of his career. He was known primarily for revealing confidential documents and his great accomplishments were little recognized, The History of the Sikhs having been largely suppressed. Cunningham died unexpectedly in 1851. Indeed, the second edition""featuring Cunningham's own corrections and additions""was not published until 1853, too late for Cunningham's reputation to matter. Folding map expertly linen-backed, interior generally quite nice, binding fine. A lovely copy in fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Manuscript on paper entitled "Press Catalogue of Books in the Library of Sir Michael R Shaw Stewart Bart Ardgowan MDCCCXLIX "

      Lithographed title & 80 printed ruled leaves, each written on one side in a neat & legible hand. Folio (380 x 240 mm.), orig. half calf (covers somewhat worn & rubbed, upper hinge cracked but strong), leather lettering label on upper cover, a.e.g. "Ardgowan: 1849." The Shaw-Stewart family has been one of the most important in Renfrewshire since the 15th century. The lands of Ardgowan, set on the south shores of the Firth of Clyde, were given to John Stewart by his father King Robert III of Scotland in 1403 and the estate has been passed down from father to son or uncle to nephew to the present day. Sir Michael R. Shaw-Stewart (1826-1903), was M.P. for and Lord Lieutenant of Renfrewshire and chairman of the County Council. He inherited an estate of about 26,400 acres. Ardgowan House - "the house of the smith" - was built between 1798 and 1801 for Sir John Shaw Stewart, the 4th Baronet. The house was designed by William Cairncross who was Robert Adam's assistant when he designed and built Culzean Castle. Culzean had just been completed and greatly influenced the original design of Ardgowan House. Along with a magnificent house, Shaw-Stewart also inherited a fine library, here detailed. It is arranged by shelf-mark with title and author, format, place of publication, and date. Approximately 2000 titles are listed and, quite interestingly, about 80 percent were printed before 1800 (including a good number of 16th-century books). There are many continental imprints. Fine condition.

        Anklag-Akte, errichtet durch die K. General-Staatsprokuratur der Pfalz, nebst Urtheil der Anklagekammer des k. Appellationsgerichtes der Pfalz in Zweibrücken vom 29. Juni 1850, in der Untersuchung gegen Martin Reichard, entlassener Notär in Speyer, und 332 Consorten, wegen bewaffneter Rebellion gegen die bewaffnete Macht, Hoch- und Staatsverraths &c.

      26 x 21,5 cm. VIII, 125 S. + 1 Bl., 295 Seiten. Marmorierter Pappband der Zeit mit Rückenschild (Kanten leicht berieben). *Stammhammer II, 272. - Erste Ausgabe. Umfassende Dokumentation zu Vorgeschichte und Verlauf des im Mai 1849 ausgebrochenen Pfälzer Aufstands gegen die bayerische Regierung und für eine pfälzische Reichsunmittelbarkeit. Martin Reichard gehörte zu den maßgeblichen Betreibern des Aufstands und wurde in Abwesenheit zum Tod verurteilt. Reichard war zuvor als engagierter Demokrat 1848 in die Frankfurter Nationalversammlung und 1849 zum Präsidenten und Kriegsminister der Provisorischen Regierung der Pfalz gewählt worden. Nach der gewaltsamen Niederschlagung des Aufstandes durch die preußische Armee konnte Reichard noch rechtzeitig in die Schweiz fliehen und schließlich nach Amerika auswandern, wo er bis zu seinem Tod 1872 ein Hotel betrieb. - Der erste Teil enthält auf 125 S. den "Auszug aus dem Register der Urtheile des kgl Appelationsgerichtes Zweibrücken", der zweite Teil mit 295 Seiten die eigentliche Anklageschrift "Anklage-Akt". - Beiliegt die Urteilsschrift nebst Nachtrag (zus. 28 Seiten) "Im Namen seiner Majestät des Königs von Bayern", die am Schluß auf den 17. Dezember 1850 datiert und gezeichnet ist von einem L. Schmitt, erster Staatsprokurator. - Der "Pfälzer Aufstand" (2. Mai bis 19. Juni 1849) entstand als demokratische Bewegung in der Pfalz, nachdem der Bayerische König die Deutsche Verfassung der Paulskirche abgelehnt hatte und die Gültigkeit der ersten deutschen bürgerlichen Grundrechte für Bayern verneinte. Aus einem Treffen von 12000 Bürgern der demokratischen Volksvereine der Pfalz beschloss die Volksversammlung eine provisorische Regierung auf der rechtlichen Grundlage der Frankfurter Reichsversammlung. Es entstand eine provisorische Regierung mit dem Ziel einer faktischen Loslösung der Rheinpfalz von der bayerischen Herrschaft. - Die in dem Massenprozess Verurteilten wurden in dem Prozeß wegen Hochverrats verurteilt und in der Urteilsschrift als Terroristen bezeichnet - heute gelten sie als mutige Helden und Vorkämpfer der Demokratie. Die Gerichtsbarkeit definiert aber bis heute auch in den sog. demokratischen Staaten den politischen Kampf um bürgerliche Rechte und Freiheit zumeist im kriminalisierenden Sinne des herrschenden Machtapparates. Daran hat sich bis heute im Grundsatz nichts verändert. Die aktuellen Bestrebungen des herrschenden Machtapparates in Deutschland, das Grundgesetz dahingehend zu ändern, dass die Armee (auch ohne Rücksprache mit dem Kabinett) u.a. auch bei "Unruhen" im Innern eingesetzt werden kann, zeigen anschaulich dessen Demokratieverständnis. (Wie würde dann nach den Schreckensbildern von Stuttgart21 wohl ein "München21" mit Einsatz der Armee ausgehen?). - Innendeckel mit Exlibris, Titelblatt mit radiertem Stempel (dort hinterlegt). Insgesamt sauberes und gut erhaltenes Exemplar des sehr seltenen Werkes.

        An Antiquarian and Picturesque Tour Round the Southern Coast of England.

      - Illustrated with Eighty-Four Plates, from Drawings by J. M. W. Turner, R.A., W. Collins, R.A., William Westall, R.A., S. Prout, P. Dewint, and Others. Engraved by George Cooke, E. Goodall, R. Wallis, Edward Finden, W. Miller, J. C. Allen, and W. B. Cooke. London: M. A. Nattali, 1849. First edition (pp. viii, 202). Large quarto (29 cm) in full morocco, fine gilt decorations and titles to cover and spine, bevelled boards, all edges gilt; complete with 84 engravings of fraught and wind-blown seascapes and workaday seaside scenes-- forty-nine plates on stiff card (including frontispiece), each with a tissue guard, together with thirty-five engravings in text as head and tail pieces, etc. Based on Turner’s two-volume work, published in 1826, with the addition of a number of engravings and a completely revised text (So, if not the first edition, then a thoroughly revised and expanded one). The high-style brown morocco has an inset title panel in maroon and is a showpiece of mid-century gilt decoration with dentil- work, garlands, and sunbursts; the rear cover, in maroon morocco, features a sunburst in a similarly framed panel, or lozenge, in blind. The real panel has a small damaged area about 2 cm square and two still smaller spots (See image); tips and spine ends are lightly abraded. The firm, square binding opens at p. 46 and p. 148; rear hinge starting but holding. Save only the rear of the frontispiece, which is blotched, the fine engraved plates and text are virtually free of foxing or other discolouration. A fine, bright copy of an uncommon, high-style, seaside travelogue. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter (retained copy) from the "Mayors Office, Charleston, S.C. Feby 21st 1849" Addressed "To His Excellency James K. Polk President of the United States.

      Charleston: Thomas Ledger Hutchinson, 1849. Letter. Very good. 8" x 10" one page letter on blue unlined paper. Folded vertically and horizontally. Two small tape repairs on the verso. Old ink word "Duplicate" written on the verso of the letter. The letter reads, "Sir, As the Period is now at hand, when you retire from the high office whose duties you have administered with so much honor to yourself and prosperity to our Country - to seek the tranquil enjoyments of home - The City Council of Charleston in behalf the Citizens, without distinction of party, desirous that an opportunity should be afforded them to testify their approval of the firm and constitutional ground you have maintained upon the momentous question of Southern rights, & the consistency hat has marked your official career from the dawn to its close - have directed me to write you to visit the City on your way homeward, as the honored guest of the City, & to receive from them those demonstrations respect your public conduct so justly demands. Permit me sir on this occasion to make known my personal satisfaction in having been made the organ of representing the desire of our Citizens & to subscribe myself with the highest consideration, Yr. Obt. Servt. T. L. Hutchinson Mayor" This letter was addressed to Polk less than two weeks before his term ended. Polk's diary entry for February 26, 1849, acknowledges his receipt of a letter from the "Mayor of Charleston, S.C., inviting me on behalf of the City Council to visit Charleston on my way home as the "guest of the City". I answered the letter & accepted the invitation." On March 8, 1849, Polk was met by by a committee from Charleston in Wilmington who escorted him to the wharf and onto the ship; they arrived in Charleston on March 9th. There was great fanfare; he was presented to Mayor Hutchinson at noon. He had a meeting with Governor Seabrook a bit later and in the evening was treated to a public dinner with the Mayor, Governor and "many Vice Presidents." He called the reception "most brilliant and everything connected with it was conducted with order and good taste." [The Diary of James K. Polk During His Presidency 1845-1849. (pages 352, 380-385) Vol. IV. Edited by M. Quaife 1910]. Thomas Hutchinson (1812-1883) was the 35th Mayor of Charleston. He attended Cambridge University and later graduated from Harvard Law School in 1832. After graduating from law school he decided to plant rice along the Chehaw River and later the Cooper River. He was elected Mayor in 1846 and served to 1850. He was elected again from 1852-1855. He was elected a member of the South Carolina Legislature in 1863 and served one term. He was President of the Charleston Library Society for a number of years and was instrumental in saving many of their valuable books during the war. The Hutchinsons were a prominent family in South Carolina and Georgia. [City of Charleston Year Book 1883 pages 276-278].

        The Miner’s Guide and Metallurgist’s Directory

      New York and Cincinnati: A. S. Barnes & Company and H. W. Derby & Co., 1849. First Edition. Complete. Approximately 4” x 6”. 86 pages including 3 pages of b/w illustrations. 9 additional advertising pages in rear. Title page illustrated with an untitled wood engraving (titled as “Scenery on a Branch of the Sacramento” in a contemporary book on California) of a placer gold mining scene. Sound binding; some very light foxing to the endpapers and first several leaves. Clean pages; well-done repair to closed tear on one leaf. Minor cover wear; heaviest at spine ends. Bright gilt spine lettering. This is clearly a reference book intended for men caught up in the California Gold Rush of 1849 although neither are specifically mentioned in the text. As stated in its preface, the book was intended to be a portable, basic reference for the novice, for those “without a large library”, and to be “an indispensable companion to enable the miner to assay [and] extract . . . useful metals.” The book addresses the Classification of Rocks, Instruments and Processes of Subterranean Operations, Means of Penetrating the Earth, the Chemistry and Geology of Metals (Gold and others). It contains three appendices, A Tabular View of the Rocks of the United States, Alloys, and a Glossary. Not listed in Howes, Graff nor Streeter. OCLC shows about 30 copies held by institutions, but this title is otherwise rather scarce. As of 2016, no examples are for sale within the trade, and a search of ABPC, Rare Book Hub, and Worthpoint reveals only one auction record. At age 19, long before he became a renowned professor of natural science, or for that matter even attended college, Orton “published his first book The Miner's Guide and Metallurgist's Directory . . . at the time of the California gold rush. . . . The book was a surprising success, later appearing in five revised editions as the widely read Underground Treasures: How and Where to Find Them.” (The Vassar Encyclopedia)

The plates include images of the city itself, the participants including "Moolraj" and his brothers, and key moments during the siege, the text offers a reasonably full description of events, partly drawn from Dunlop's own account. Abbey Travel 474; Bruce 4215; Colas 912; Lipperheide 1498. A most superior copy, the binding suggests possibly a deluxe presentation copy. Copy comes from a Norfolk Estate from where it has been in the same family for 150 years, ie. since new! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Kreuznach: R. Voigtlander, 1849. 32pp. Printed blue wrappers (rear wrapper original, front wrapper in facsimile). Small corner repairs to rear wrapper. Some foxing, two ink stamps on titlepage, else very good. In a half morocco slipcase and cloth chemise. The first edition of an exceedingly rare Gold Rush pamphlet, printed in the hallowed year of that epochal event. "Like many guidebooks for Europeans, this pamphlet gives general information on California's physical features, history, and 'Notes for Emigrants' on the gold discovery. The portion on California's gold riches consists primarily of an article reprinted from the KOELNER ZEITUNG of January 14, 1849, which in turn summarizes R.B. Mason and others. The guide mentions the many German settlers in the Sacramento Valley and speaks proudly of Captain Sutter" - Kurutz. Only four institutions worldwide report a copy of this book: the California State Library, the University of California at Berkeley, Yale, and the State Library in Berlin. It is even more difficult to encounter at auction, this copy being the only one on record to pass through the rooms. COWAN II, p.102. HOWES C43, "aa." KURUTZ 112. SABIN 9984.

        Mardi: and a Voyage Thither

      1849 - MELVILLE, Herman. Mardi: and a Voyage Thither. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1849. Two volumes. Octavo, original blind-stamped green cloth gilt, yellow endpapers. Housed in custom slipcase and chemises. $5000.Preferred first American edition of Melville's third novel, in original cloth.When Melville was writing Mardi he apparently intended it to be the third in the series of South Seas adventures that included Typee (1846) and Omoo (1847). "But during the composition process his intentions changed," effecting a key transformation as Melville shifted "from entertainer to truth teller". [and the] sea yarn turned into allegorical romance" (Baym, "Melville's Quarrel with Fiction"). Though initially praised by some for images that stretch "before us like a new world," Mardi disappointed its public and Melville was pressured to return to a more straightforward style (New York Evening Mirror). Yet it is in Mardi that Melville reveals "the first blossoming of the intellectual growth and spiritual searching that would shape his later works" (Life and Works). This is the most desirable first American edition, set from Melville's manuscript and published mid-April 1849. Given 19th-century copyright law and attempts to avoid piracy, the first English edition was issued, as usual, several weeks before. However, the London issue was set not from manuscript but from proofs of the American edition"" therefore it is one step removed from this more valued first American issue. Second rear fly-leaf in Volume I excised (as usual), with eight pages of ads at rear of Volume II. BAL 13658 (type A cloth). Owner signature in Volume II. Bookplates.Usual light foxing, rubbing to endpapers (more in Volume I). Exceptional original cloth in about-fine condition, with a few small chips to spines, gilt very bright. A beautiful copy.
