        A Statistical Inquiry into the Condition of the People of Colour, of the City and Districts of Philadelphia

      Philadelphia: Kite and Walton. 1849. First. 44pp., disbound, stitched, spine slightly worn, text near fine. The first edition of the second census taken of black Philadelphians, published eleven years after the first. The census, conducted by the Society of Friends, or Quakers, was a true picture of the African-American population of Philadelphia. It concluded that, despite immense hardships, particularly racially motivated violence, the 10,000 black Philadelphians prospered as a class, despite Frederick Douglass's contention that black Philadelphians faced even greater hardship than Southern freedman. .

        Emma; Charms and Counter-Charms

      Simms & M'intyre; George Routledge and Co., London - 1849. () Near fine. 326pp. 16mo. Bound in contemporary full calf with gold gilt outer dentelles to the front and back boards. Gold gilt lettering stamped to the spine, as well as five decorated raised bands. Hand sewn headbands. Marbling to all of the text block edges. Marbled endpapers. Aside from some very minor shelf wear, this book is in near fine condition. Although it is not evident from the spine, there are two titles, both published in 1849, that have been contemporarily rebound into one volume: Jane Austen's Emma and Maria J. McIntosh's Charms and Counter-Charms. A strange, but interesting, seeming choice to pair Austen's incredibly famous novel with a much less popular novel by a largely forgotten author, McIntosh, who also wrote under the pen name "Aunt Kitty". An incredibly attractive contemporary binding on two classic novels. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Führer und Rathgeber für Auswanderer nach Süd-Australien und Port-Adelaide. Mit genauer Beschreibung des Ackerbaus, der Viehzucht, des Bergbaus, des Ankaufs und der Niederlassung, so wie mit Angabe der Bedingungen der Ueberfahrt. Von Eugen Laun, Schiffscapitaen in Bremen. Mit einer Karte von Süd-Australien

      Verlag von A. D. Geisler (Druck von F. C. Dubbers), Bremen, 1849 - First edition. In blue wrappers. 56 p., and folding lithographed map ("Karte zum Rathgeber für Süd-Australien"; printed by Anst. v. W. Jöntzen in Bremen). A very early emigration guide for the German pioneer settlers to Adelaide, South-Australia, with a lithographed map. Emigration to South-Australia from Germany began in the late 1830s, the first ship with German emigrants landed at Port Adelaide in 1837. The early immigrants were Lutherans escaping from religious persecution of the Prussian state. After the death of Prussian King Frederick William III in 1840, the religious reason changes to economic, and the need for reliable information about South-Australia increased. This book is one of those early publications that contains accurate facts about the climate, the geography, the flora and fauna and the history of South-Australia. It also contains reliable and practical information about the currency, the possible salary for various professions, the price of the basic goods, the custom rates, and the details of the ship travel, that were necessary for the immigrants. Very less is known about the author, Eugen Laun. In the foreword he refers to his earlier, seventeen-page book "Kurze darstellung von Süd-Australien und Port Adelaide" (Bremen, 1847) and also to his former journey to Adelaide on Leontine, an early emigrant ship with 262 passengers in 1848, which was already his third mission to Adelaide. Formerly he served as Captain on Heerheebhoy Rustomjee Patel in 1845 with 262 passengers on board and 1846 with about 250 passengers. These were among the very first German emigrant ships to South-Australia and the first exclusively from Bremen. A very early, scarce, important publication about South-Australia and the German pioneers. [Ferguson, 5089a.]. Stains on title page. Occasional foxing. A water stain to inner margin throughout. Map trimmed at lower edge that effects the title, neat line and about 2 mm of the map. Overall in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Portrait de Madame X...

      S.n, 1849. - S.n., S.l. 1849, 60x80cm environ hors cadre, autre. - Diretto da Charles Landelle uno dei più famosi artisti accademici e più popolare del Secondo Impero, questo bellissimo ritratto di una donna seduta su una sedia, include tutti i codici del genere e mostra la forte influenza di Ingres, il grande maestro della ritrattistica nel suo tempo, che non era ancora il suo maestro. Dettagli delle mani soprattutto riferimento diretto allo stile del pittore del bagno Odalisca e turco. L'opera è firmata e datata 1849 in basso a destra ricorda anche un altro celebre dipinto: Ritratto di Veuve Cliquot dipinta da Leon Cogniet due anni dopo. Quell'anno il pittore mostra due ritratti di donne in fiera e pensiamo a causa dell'anonimato modelli spesso pubbliche (intitolato semplicemente l'iniziale del loro nome) e le grandi dimensioni di questo dipinto che potrebbe essere uno di loro. Nato nel 1821 a Laval, Charles Landelle trasferisce a Parigi all'età di quattro anni, poi si è iscritto alla Scuola Reale di Belle Arti nel 1837 come allievo di Paul Delaroche e Ary Scheffer. All'inizio della sua carriera, Landelle dipinse diversi ritratti di sostenere se stesso. Fortemente influenzato dalla pittura italiana dopo viaggi al sud della Francia e l'Italia, copia alcuni dipinti dei grandi maestri del Rinascimento al Louvre. Medaglie al Salon dalle sue prime mostre Fra Angelo che ricevono le ispirazioni di Dio (1842) e S. Cecilia (1848), si distinguono per i soggetti religiosi e storici che gli consentono di vincere il riconoscimento dell'alta società del suo tempo. I suoi critici lo assicurano il successo al Salon presto numerose commissioni statali, tra cui il resto della Vergine nel 1854 che gli valse l'assegnazione del Croce di Cavaliere della Legion d'Onore. Lo stesso anno ha prodotto pastello ritratto di Alfred de Musset, ora al Louvre. L'artista abbraccia così un pittore ufficiale di carriera tra i controlli statali e ritratti di membri dell'alta società. In grado di adattarsi ai gusti e alle mode del suo tempo, guadagnando rapidamente una reputazione Landelle sa come mantenere, senza mai dimenticare di fornire un ritratto o un dipinto ai suoi benefattori. Nella seconda parte della sua carriera, dopo la parte ufficiale di esso è stato un po 'a corto di fiato, l'artista viaggiò a lungo in Marocco, Egitto, Algeria ed è dedicato a Orientalismo che occuperà molto della sua produzione fino alla sua morte nel 1908. Oggi, un certo numero di sue opere sono conservate nel museo. Una priorità importante è stato lasciato in eredità alla sua città natale di Laval, ma ci sono anche alcune delle sue opere al Louvre, il Museo Ingres di Montauban, il Museo di Belle Arti di Grenoble, Pau, Rouen o il castello Versailles. Nota: Noi non forniamo il trasporto al lavoro. - [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.

      1849. Alfred Guesdon nasce a Nantes il 13 giugno del 1808, terminati gli studi classici parte nel 1829 alla volta di Parigi per entrare come allievo architetto nello studio di Antoine Martin Garnaud. Dal 1830 si dedicò a sperimentazioni e ricerche nel campo della litografia, prediligendo soggetti storici, vedute e panorami, tratti dai numerosi viaggi che egli fece in Europa. La peculiarità di queste vedute sta nel fatto che si tratta dei primi rilievi di città dall'alto, effettuati a bordo di una mongolfiera. Nel 1849 pubblica le tavole, in litografia, nel celebre L'Italie à vol d'oiseau., o storia e descrizione sommaria delle principali città di questo paese, di H. Etiennez, accompagnate da 40 grandi vedute generali, disegnate dal vero da Alfred Guesdon e litografate con due tinte da A. Rouargue, Jules Arnout, A. Cuvillier, A. Guesdon.

Alfred Guesdon was born in Nantes, June the 13th 1808. Once he finished his classical studies, in 1829, he went to Paris, to study architecture as a pupil of Antoine Martin Garnaud. Starting from 1830, he devoted himself to experimentations and researches on the art of lithography, especially on historical subjects, views and landscapes he took from his many trips around Europe. The distinctiveness of these views is the fact that they are the first representations of the cities from above, realized on board of an air balloon.

        CHART OF THE WESTERN COAST OF NORTH AMERICA, EXTENDING FROM THE GULF OF NICOYA TO SAN BLAS. COMPILED CHIEFLY FROM THE SPANISH SURVEYS, THE WHOLE MUCH IMPROVED BY THE OBSERVATIONS OF CAPTAIN BEECHEY R.N. AND COMMANDER BELCHER R.N. [caption title].

      London: James Imray, 1849. - Engraved chart, 26 1/2 x 39 1/2 inches. Backed with linen. Two old vertical fold lines. A couple of very small chips around edges. Lightly tanned, with a few scattered foxmarks. Very good. A large "blue back" chart of the west coast of southern Mexico and Central America, extending from Cebaco Island in present-day Panama in the south to San Blas, Mexico, to the north. The map contains eight insets delineating important safe ports: Sihuatinijo (Zihuatinejo). Acapulco, Guatulco, San Carlos, Realejo, Salinas Bay, Culebra, and San Blas. It also shows views of several volcanic mountain formations from the sea at Colina, Guatemala, and Viejo, as well as views of Cape Corrientes, the Tetas de Coyuca, and the entrance to Acapulco. The map is the seventh in a series of eight that chart the Pacific coastlines of North and South America published by the London firm of James Imray in the mid-19th century. During this period, Imray was fast becoming the principal private supplier of sea charts to the merchant ships of Great Britain. His popularity was due in large part to the production of charts such as this one, which provided new and essential basic guides to areas of the Pacific beginning to be frequented more heavily by private British traders. "Salesmanship and prolific output alone would not ahve brought success unless the quality of the product had been right. In achieving this Imray had an advantage over earlier generations of commercial chart publishers, who faced a continual problem acquiring adequate hydragraphic information for their charts. By Imray's time accurate new survey material was fast becoming available for all parts of the world. His contribution was to present the material in a convenient and familiar form for the merchant ship navigator. This had changed little over the years and Imray retained the well-tried format of a small-scale chart covering as much as possible of the sea passage for a particular trade, with numerous large-scale plans of ports" - Fisher. Rare, with OCLC recording only one copy, at the Huntington Library, and not in the British Library. FISHER, THE MAKERS OF THE BLUEBACK CHARTS, p. 39. OCLC 80151015.

        A fine, large, bust-length etching by Wilhelm Woernle (1849-1916)

      - 480 x 326 mm. + wide margins. Signed in pencil by the artist ("W. Woernle") at lower right. With the remarque of a lyre and sword. A fine impression on chine-appliqué.Remnants of hinges to upper corners of verso. A composer, conductor, pianist, and critic, "[Weber's] contributions to song, choral music, and piano music were highly esteemed by his contemporaries, his opera overtures influenced the development of the concert overture and symphonic poem, and his explorations of novel timbres and orchestrations enriched the palette of musical sonorities. With the overwhelming success of his opera Der Freischütz in 1821 he became the leading exponent of German opera in the 1820s and an international celebrity. A seminal figure of the 19th century, he influenced composers as diverse as Marschner, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Meyerbeer, Berlioz, and Liszt."

        LOG OF THE PROCEEDINGS ON BOARD HM SLOOP SWIFT - William C. Aldham Esq., Commander. Commencing Wednesday 3rd July 1849. ending Saturday 5th Jan 1850. Kept by Viscount Ockham.

      Manuscripts 1849 - 1852, Manuscripts - 2 volumes. pp. 123; 105 leaves of MS plus 74 blank leaves in the second volume approximately. Small folios. Reverse calf with leather spine labels, Vol 2 with two tears to the calf. Vol 1 reads Visct. Ockham's Log on Bd H.M.S. Swift 1849. Champion 1850. Daphne 1851. Vol 2 reads Viscount Ockham's Log H.M.S. Daphne 1850 - 1851. These dates are inaccurate, the logs cover from July 3rd 1849 to August 5th 1852.The logs cover Lord Ockham's voyages from Plymouth Sound to Sullivan's Cove, Hobarton (Hobart, Tasmania), then via New Zealand to Valparaiso in Chile, where on the 8th February 1850 he changed ships and joined HMS Champion. Sailing in Champion up to Guayaquil in Ecuador via Callao in Peru, returning to Valparaiso and again changing ships, this time to HMS Daphne on 18th June 1850. He remained on Daphne sailing up the western seaboard of the Americas as far north as Beaver Harbour, a bay on northern Vancouver Island (10th July 1851). Daphne worked her way back down the western seaboard, around Cape Horn, up to Rio de Janiero(19th June 1852) and returning to British water August 5th 1852. The last entry reads Eddystone Lighthouse NW 7 or 8 miles. Further information available on request. Information on Byron's grandson, Lord Ockham, is sparse but Doris Langley Moore in her biography of his mother, Ada Countess of Lovelace. Byron's Legitimate Daughter mentions him enough to give an outline of his upbringing and character. Moore studied, among other sources, the letters of Lady Byron in the Sedley Taylor Collection at Cambridge University; the Somerville Papers in the Bodleian Library; also at the Bodleian and most importantly the Lovelace Papers. From these she knew that Ockham had 'sailed away in the Swift en route for Van Diemen's Land' (p257) but she knew nothing of the Champion or when he transferred to the Daphne - 'At some date which I cannot pinpoint he was transferred to the Daphne, but this may have taken place in a foreign port for I have not found any sign that he had shore leave in England.' (p283), he did not have shore leave in Britain as these logs tell us. Letters were rare, Lady Lovelace wrote after receiving one from Ockham 'I have been much . alarmed . mentionig that he is very unwell, that their purser in convulsions after 12 hours illness had died, & that it was fearfully unhealthy - 'there being scarcely any ship there but what loses some officers.' In his Log, Ockham describes the same event 'Sunday Sept 29th 1850. At single anchor off Mazatlan (Mexico). 8. Departed this Life, Mr John R. Bluett, Esq., Paymaster & Purser.' This text is edged in black and Ockham notes the next day that a Party was sent on shore to bury Mr Bluett. The Daphne had been anchored off Mazatlan since August 14th. This comparison illustrates how emotionless, matter of fact and lacking in human detail the log is. It is all to do with the ship's course and position, wind direction and work required. Work included washing clothes, painting the ship, cleaning guns, blacking down rigging, washing decks, exercising newly raised men, cutlass exercise, exercising young gentlemen at gun drill, exercising marines at musket drill, scrapping masts, & receiving provisions on board . Other vessels in port or passed are noted. He does note on February 10th 1850, having just joined HMS Champion, that 'Punished Jno. Main (AB) with 36 lashes. And Wm Cox (?) with 24 lashes as per Warrants. He does not state what their crime was [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Manuscript leaf from Cape Cod

      1849. Single sheet measuring 7 1/2 inches by 9 3/4 inches. In brown ink with pencil annotations and strikethroughs. This is a section of Thoreau's working notes on his visit to Cape Cod in 1849 and it touches on a comparison of land transportation to the expediency of the sea as a means of getting places. At one point, Thoreau muses, "(a) sleigh is never seen at least it's a great novelty, on the Cape the snow being either absorbed by the sand or blown into drifts". After a paragraph about fences, the manuscript closes on a full sentence about Provincetown Harbor "which as well as the greater part of the Bay, and an indefinite expanse of the ocean, we overlooked from our perch, is deservedly famous". The published text, which was released posthumously in 1865, varies from this manuscript version. The leaf is set into a paper window mount, and is accompanied by a small black-and-white photographic print showing a beach dune. Matted and attractively framed. Faint crease and slight separation along old horizontal crease with no loss. Fine.

The first edition of the second census taken of black Philadelphians, published eleven years after the first.

        Handwritten letter from Cooma to Alexander's mother in London..

      Sydney, 1849. Bifolium, dated 26 June, 1849. written in cross hatch, stamped in red 'PAID SHIP LETTER SYDNEY', dated 1849, stamped Cooma and also stamped on arrival in London. Alexander Hamilton (1816-1869) was a squatter and pastoralist who arrived in New South Wales around 1839 (having been born in Scotland) and acquired squatting runs in the Monaro District. He is former member of the New South Wales Parliament (Member for Monaro). The NSW Registry has a record of a marriage being registered in 1849 (12 April) between Alexander Hamilton and a Jeanette M. Pryce. There appears to have been a strong connection between the families as the National Library Australia holds copies of the 'Pryce papers' with much correspondence involving both families.In this letter dated June 29th, Jeanette begins the text which is concluded by Alexander. Jeannette mentions her brother who "was married a month since'. Edward Gifford Pryce married a Emma Watson on 30 May 1849 in the Church of England Monaro District. Rev. Edward Pryce was the last Missioner sent by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel to Australia (therefore he was the last of the Chaplains sent to the Colony of New South Wales by Her Majesty's Government). Rev. Edward Pryce arrived in Australia aboard the Clyde in April 1840, his sister 'Miss Price' is listed as a passenger with him. In the letter Alexander goes on to mention that 'My Jeannie is now the best Housekeeper in the district, alth'o when she first came to take charge of her Brothers house she knew but little about it…' we can assume that she accompanied her brother Edward Pryce out to Australia in order to keep house for him.The letter describes a pleasant life; Jeannette is busy engaged in making a garden which "will give an air of civilised elegance to spots hitherto remarkable for their dreary appearance". Alex says they live on the fat of the land "for besides beef and mutton we have a well stocked poultry yard with the finest ducks and geese you ever set eyes on". He finishes by saying they intend to send their wool home this season and wish to purchase a piano out of the proceeds.The letter was carried aboard the Midlothian, a barque of 414 tons. Under the command of Captain Gibson, she arrived in Sydney on 8 April and loaded cargo of colonial produce. On 16 July she sailed for London and arrived off Falmouth on 2 December.
