        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." Paul Corneilson et al in Grove Music Online.Woernle, born in Stuttgart, worked and died in Vienna. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        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.

        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.
