        Autograph Letter Signed; Making Amends for Insulting Reference to Henry Wise in the "Democratic Union"

      Wheatland, OH 1849 - AUTOGRAPHED Letter Signed, Making amends for insulting reference to Wise in the "Democratic Union". James Buchanan to later Confederate General Henry Alexander Wise, explaining that he was away and could not have prevented the publication of a eulogy for President Polk that contains an insulting reference to Wise, describes the author of the eulogy sympathetically, and invites Wise for a visit. 1 page, 4to, ruled paper; inlaid, faint toning at right edge, folds.Henry Alexander Wise (1806-1876) was a Virginia lawyer and politician who served 6 terms in Congress, fought in the Civil War as a Confederate Major General, and who, as Governor of Virginia, signed the death warrant of John Brown. Edwin Wilson Hutter (1813-1873) was editor of the Harrisburg Democratic Union and Lancaster Intelligencer and Journal, private secretary to James Buchanan during Polk's presidency, and became a Lutheran preacher in the last decades of his life. "My attention was directed.to your communication to the Union in reference to an expression employed by Mr. Hutter in his eulogy on the late President. Had I been at home when this was prepared or delivered, I think I may say it certainly would not have contained the justly offensive statement to which you take exception.I never knew . . . that the eulogy had any reference to yourself.[O]ur friendly relations.it is my anxious desire to preserve as long as we both shall live.Mr. Hutter no longer resides in Lancaster. He sometime since removed to Baltimore where he conducts a Lutheran paper. He became religious in consequence of domestic affections.He is an amicable man." [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        [Romans Populaires Illustres . . . Traduction de la Bedolliere. Edition Illustrée de Bertall]

      Paris: Publié par Gustave Barba, [circa 1849-51], 1849. Early or first French editions of this translation. Cf. Spiller and Blackburn, page 24, etc.; OCLC records the individual titles, but cites very few locations. Edges a little rubbed; very good set.. Large 8vo, 22 parts bound in two volumes, contemporary red quarter calf, red cloth sides, gilt rules and lettering. Illustrated by Bertall. 23 titles by Cooper, translated into French by Emile de la Bedolliere and nicely illustrated by Charles Albert d'Arnoux, aka Bertall (1820-1882), the prolific French illustrator. These titles, and several others by Cooper, were originally issued in parts in Barba's series of Romans Populaires Illuistrés and were apparently later issued bound together. Spiller and Blackburn state that the series or individual titles were reprinted five times between 1849 and 1875. The 23 titles here were bound randomly, each with separate paginations and it is likely they were bound from the parts. The text of each of the two volumes is preceded by a title-page or cover apparently from the original parts issue. Round stamp of the Bibliotheque Paroissiale on the title-pages and on a few pages of text. The binding title reads "F. Cooper / Oeuvres / Illustrees." At the foot of each spine is the ownership name of "G. Hantraye."

        A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers.

      Boston and Cambridge: James Munroe and Company,, 1849. Duodecimo (197 × 112 mm) in sixes. Publisher's presentation binding (BAL: "A:T cloth") of brown cloth with gilt titles to spine and the sides blindstamped with a 5-rule frame enclosing a rococo ornament, pale-yellow endpapers. Housed in a brown cloth chemise and brown cloth slipcase. Some minor wear to spine ends, short split to head of front joint, internally very fresh; an excellent, unusually bright copy. First edition, publisher's presentation copy sent for review before publication, with two marginal corrections made in pencil by Thoreau himself, correcting "work" to "wash" on p. 120 and "experience" to "[expe]diency" on p. 139; inscribed "Editor of the N.A. Review, from the Publishers" on the front free endpaper in a secretarial hand. The book was published on 30 May 1849. Munroe printed 1,000 sets of sheets but bound only 550 copies, using eight different cloth bindings. Review copies were sent out four days before the official publication date, and these pre-publication copies were corrected by Thoreau in pencil in two instances, when he realised that changes he had made in proof had been overlooked. The earliest copies have only these two corrections; at a later date, perhaps as late as 1855, Thoreau also realised that three lines had been omitted at the foot of p. 396; in a few copies he supplied these himself but most are supplied in pencil in a neat hand that resembles that of Sophia Thoreau. Pencil, of course, was the appropriate writing medium; the family's pencil company, Thoreau and Company, produced "the best-known pencils in the United States, praised by artists and artisans." This particular review copy was unlikely to have been well received. The editor of The North American Review, the country's most important and prestigious journal of the time, was Francis Bowen, under whom Thoreau studied philosophy at Harvard. Bowen had already attacked the arrogance and obscurantism of the Transcendentalists in a January 1837 review of Emerson's Nature in the the Christian Examiner. The remarkable fresh condition of this copy indicates that he did not read far, if it all, into the book.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Dresden, 4. VII. 1849.

      1849. 3 SS. 4to. 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. Den 2. u. 3. Act habe ich durchgelesen, einige Kleinigkeiten werden wohl noch zu ändern sein aber die Verse passen wenigstens alle. In diesem Briefe kann ich mich nicht vollständig aussprechen denn ich habe nicht die nothige Gemütsruhe in diesen Augenblick was dazu erforderlich ist u ich hoffe die ersten Tage Septembers selbst nach Berlin auf 2 tage kommen zu können u. dann wollen wir das ganze gehorig durchsehen und ordnen [...]". - Barbieri war als Kapellmeister an italienischen Bühnen tätig, bevor er 1844-46 Kapellmeister am Carltheater in Wien wurde und 1845 Gesangmeister am Kärntnertortheater. Danach wirkte er als Dirigent in Berlin, Dresden, Hamburg, Bremen und Rio de Janeiro, bis er schließlich 1862 seine Tätigkeit als Kapellmeister am Nationaltheater in Pest aufnahm.

      C. A. Reitzel, Kjøbenhavn 1849 - First Edition of Kierkegaard’s Brilliant "Sickness unto Death" KIERKEGAARD, Søren. Sygdommen til Døden. En christelig psychologisk Udvikling til Opbyggelse og Opvækkelse. Af Anti-Climacus. Udgivet af S. Kierkegaard (The Sickness unto Death.

Himmelstrup 119.The philosophical furthering of his Concept of Dread, this work takes the issue of anxiety beyond the earlier psychological considerations, and engages with the spiritual nature of despair. While anxiety is generated in the encounter with circumstances and is related to the ethical, despair is the anxiety which results from contemplating the eternal.This sickness unto death is marked by the concept of despair. According to Kierkegaard, an individual is "in despair" if he does not align himself with God or God's plan for the self. In this way he loses his self, which Kierkegaard defines as the "relation's relating itself to itself in the relation." Kierkegaard defines humanity as the tension between the "finite and infinite", and the "possible and the necessary", and is identifiable with the dialectical balancing act between these opposing features, the relation. While humans are inherently reflective and self-conscious beings, to become a true self one must not only be conscious of the self but also be conscious of being created by a higher being, God. When one either denies this Self or the Self's creator, one is in despair.CONDITION: Very good+. Quarter-leather with marbled boards, light cracking along hinges.

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.

        Deutsche Kolonisten im Heiligen Land [Gebundene Ausgabe] Jakob Eisler (Autor)

      Hirzel, Stuttgart, 1849. "Ich arbeitete gern mit dem Portr?t meines grimmig dreinschauenden Gro?vaters Johann Adolph neben mir" schrieb der Nobelpreistr?ger John Steinbeck in einem seiner Briefe. Warum Johann Adolph Gro?steinbeck so ernst blickte, macht dieses Buch deutlich. 1849 wanderte er im Alter von 17 Jahren aus dem Bergischen Land nach Pal?stina aus, doch das Leben dort war h?rter als erwartet. Nach einem schweren Schicksalsschlag suchte der Siedler schlie?lich in Amerika eine neue Heimat. W?hrend der ganzen Zeit blieben er und seine Familie in regem Briefkontakt, und diese Briefe lassen eine fast vergessene Epoche in der Geschichte Pal?stinas wieder lebendig werden. Zum 100. Geburtstag von John Steinbeck. Autor Jakob Eisler ist Historiker und Mitarbeiter am Landeskirchlichen Archiv in Stuttgart. Zusatzinfo 19 schw.-w. Abb.

        BERETNING OM CALIFORNIEN OG DETS GULDRIGDOM

      Christiania: C. Wulfsberg, 1849. [4],124pp. plus a folding lithographed map. 16mo. Contemporary marbled boards, cloth backstrip. Boards rubbed, extremities worn. Hinges tender, lacking free endpapers, light dampstaining to text, some wrinkling to map. Good. In a half morocco slipcase and cloth chemise. The first edition of a screamingly rare Norwegian gold rush guidebook, likely produced for the first wave of Norwegian immigrants to California, which just happened to coincide with the gold rush. The contents reproduce Colonel Richard Barnes Mason's famous report of the discovery of gold from August 17, 1848 as well as a portion of Vizetelly's work; as common to continental guidebooks. The folding map is an interesting production, titled "Kart over Californien 1849" and showing an area from northern Mexico to Oregon, then San Francisco to Santa Fe, with "Indiana" just north of New Mexico (probably, and hopefully, a contemporary designation for Indian Territory, rather than the Hoosier state). "This Norwegian guidebook to California clearly demonstrates the worldwide effect of the Gold Rush" - Kurutz. OCLC records just five institutional copies worldwide, at the Huntington Library, the University of California, Berkeley, Yale, Harvard, and the Danish National Library. COWAN II, p.50. KURUTZ 50.

Light toning, and a small contemporary inked letter "A" to front wrapper. Small loss to upper corner of last leaf, blank slip mounted to first page of text (covering an old stamp?). Very good. In a half morocco slipcase and cloth chemise. Rare German gold rush map and guide from the famous year of the '49er. Third edition, of four published in 1849, all of which are scarce. Friedrich Gerstäcker was the author of several works in German on the California gold rush. The present pamphlet is based on a piece originally published in the CALIFORNIA HERALD. "Gerstäcker provided information on crossing the Isthmus but recommended the Cape Horn route. He also warned Germans against the overland route. In addition to giving travel advice, the author described San Francisco and the gold region and provided quotations from various newspapers" - Kurutz. The map on the front wrapper depicts the Northern California gold region, and includes an inset table with distances from Monterey. According to the text, the map was prepared by an American Army officer, Artillery Lt. Loeser, who bore Mason's famous dispatch to Washington announcing the discovery of gold in California. The wrapper states (and Wheat confirms) that the map was taken from the NEW YORK HERALD (December 26, 1848). In his note to the HERALD, Wheat refers to the map as "of exceptional rarity" and attributes the map to Lieutenant Ord. An early guide to the California Gold Rush from an author who was there between September 1849 and November 1850, where he prospected for gold and set up his own store at Feather River.

He describes San Francisco and routes to the mines, and warns of the dangers inherent in the journey and the odds against striking it rich: "Let every man, then, who goes to California, arrange his affairs at home, if he has any to arrange, and MAKE HIS WILL. He may outlive all the perils of the enterprise, and return - either very rich or extremely poor - and live long in the society of his friends; but he runs many chances to reach a very different result." Other pieces of advice are more succinct including "stay at home," and "if you go to California, take any route but [the Isthmus]." Walton further asserts that "our own opinion is, that there is a vast deal of knavery in getting up this gold fever," and that recent reports of discoveries of three-pound gold nuggets are "monstrous nonsense." The pamphlet concludes with a long humorous poem entitled "The Californian Cry," which balances the excitement and anticipation of going to California with cautionary advice. We locate fifteen copies in institutions, though it is our experience that Walton's book is very scare on the market. A great gold rush pamphlet, with clear-headed advice for those caught with gold fever. HOWES W77, "b." EBERSTADT 135:177. COWAN, p.668. KURUTZ 658. VAIL, GOLD FEVER, p.25. WHEAT GOLD RUSH 182 (note).

        Dictionnaire universel d'histoire naturelle servant de complément aux oeuvres de Buffon, de G. Cuvier, aux encyclopédies, aux anciens dictionnaires scientifiques et resument les traités spéciaux sur les diverses branches des sciences naturelles, etc.

      Paris, Charles d'Orbigny, 1849. 16 parts in 16 (13 text volumes, three plate atlases). Large 8vo. With 288 tissue-guarded, mostly hand-coloured and chromolithographed engraved plates, after Travies and others. A few plates are tinted, or plain, as intended. Uniform contemporary green quarter calf over green pebbled boards. Spines with gilt lines, ornaments and title. Marbled endpapers. All edges speckled.= The first edition of the largest and best natural history encyclopaedia of the mid-19th century, with many thousands of pages, published over an eight- year's period. The list of participating scientists is impressive. We find names such as Arago, Audouin, Becquerel, Brongniart, Deshayes, Desmarest, Alcide d'Orbigny (the author's elder brother), Élie de Beaumont, Geoffroy St-Hilaire, Humboldt, Lucas, Milne Edwards, Moquin-Tandon, Quatrefages, Valenciennes, Van Beneden and many others. The fantastic engraved plates are nearly all very beautifully hand-coloured and show great detail. Birds, reptiles, fish, butterflies, beetles and shells are well-represented. A few plates are only tinted: in particular those dealing with fossils, and one plate (on whales) is plain, as intended. The list of illustrators is as impressive as the list of authors, including Travies (mainly birds), Blanchard (insects), Delarue (insects), Maubert (botany), Oudart (mammals, reptiles, fish), Prêtre (molluscs), Vaillant, Werner, and others. Boards rather rubbed. Text and nearly all plates clean, only two plates a bit age-toned and less than five with a few marginal spots. Internally a very good, unmarked copy indeed. Horn-Schenkling, 16577; Nissen ZBI, 4617.

        Autograph letter signed. Fitzroy Street, [15. III. 1849].

      1849. 8vo. 1 p. on double leaf. To his son-in-law Henry Bicknell, making arrangements to meet: "I have unfortunately accepted an invitation to dine with Lord Tenterden on Wednesday, had it been an other I would have endeavoured to get off - as it is I have done as you desired an pop'd Marochetti into the fire. With the exception of that and Saturday I am disengaged the rest of the week [...]". - In a postscript, he adds that "Turner called on Monday to say he would dine with you tomorrow having mistaken the day - he is to dine with your Governor [Henry Bicknell's father, the art collector Elhanan Bicknell] on Saturday". - Roberts enjoyed a close and warm relationship with his daughter and her husband, no doubt a compensation for his own unhappy marriage.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Karlsbad, 9. VII. 1849.

      1849. ¾ S. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief) und Siegel. An den Komponisten Alexander Dreyschock (1818-1869) in Prag: "Ihrer gütigen Zuschrift zufolge bedaure ich sehr, Ihnen im Betreff eines guten Instruments keine genügende Antwort ertheilen zu können, indem auf hiesigen Platze die besten Instrumente nur von hiesigen Meistern Wagner et Feller gebaut, und für einen Kunst-Heros wie Sie, nicht sonderlich zu empfehlen sind [...]". - Josef Labitzky wurde 1835 Kapellmeister des Karlsbader Kurorchesters. Es gelang ihm, das Orchester in kurzer Zeit auf eine solche Höhe zu bringen, dass er 1846 auch Sinfoniekonzerte geben konnte. Die Erfolge Labitzkys als Kapellmeister und Komponist ermöglichten Reisen des Orchesters nach Pilsen 1838, Prag, Wien, Warschau, Petersburg 1839 und London (vgl. MGG VIII, 14). Alexander Dreyschock folgte 1862 einer Berufung als Prof. des Klavierspiels an das neugegründete Konservatorium Rubinsteins in St. Petersburg, wurde dort zugleich Direktor der Theatermusikschule und russischer Hofpianist.

        Lettre autographe signée ("Juliette"). [Paris], 22 mai [1849].

      1849. 4 pages in-8. À Victor Hugo. Charmante lettre où elle se plaint avec humour d'embarras gastriques. Elle supporterait son petit malaise avec plus de courage s'il était là pour la dorloter. "[...] Je m'en veux presque maintenant d'avoir sacrifié mon coeur à mon ventre une autre fois je ne ferai pas de ces stupides concessions-là et il s'en tirera comme il pourra et ces borborigmes aussi. Tiens qu'est-ce qu'ils me veulent donc ceux-là? Quand je vous dis qu'il n'y a plus de petits boyaux voici les miens qui veulent faire autant de bruit que les vôtres, les ambitieux. Voulez-vous bien vous taire tout de suite je n'aime pas les maux si tapageurs que ça [...]". Elle n'est cependant pas malade: "je t'aime trop voilà tout. Le reste c'est pure imitation et pour faire comme les grands boyaux. Je t'adore envers et contre tout [...]".

        Corrispondenza politica. Assieme di circa 60 ff. manoscritti di diversi formati

      1849. in folio (mm 320x220), legatura della fine del XIX in mezza pelle e percallina verde ai piatti, titolo in oro al dorso ''Corrispondenza politica''. Si tratta di una serie di riflessioni e minute del Conte Francesco Bulgarini Visconti su alcuni fatti politici intercorsi tra la fine del 1848 e il 1849 a cominciare dalla presa di Milano da parte di radetzky; i primo 12 ff. sono, ad esempio, una sorta di diario cronologico commentato dei primi mesi dell'anno. Particolarmente interessante che siano conservate le lettere di amici e parenti del Bulgarini, tra cui quelle dell'avvocato milanese Agostino Zanella, di alcuni suoi cugini di casa Visconti e di Giuseppe Campori, assieme alle sue minute di risposta, permettendo così una visione d'insieme della corrispondenza. Sono allegati anche alcuni fogli volanti di argomento politico annotati dal conte. Appartenente probabilmente al ramo dei Visconti dei Marchesi di Borgoalto, al momento attuale non abbiamo reperito ulteriori notizie sul Bulgarini, trasferitosi nel corso del 1849, forse per ragioni politiche, da Genova a Nizza. Interessante documento storico.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Wien, 21. VIII. 1849.

      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.
