Written by Nelson Knox Wheeler
Deposit, New York, 1849. Unbound. Near fine. This two-page letter measures 15.5" x 10" unfolded. It was sent by Judge Nelson Knox Wheeler from Deposit, New York to an associate, H. Ballard, at Cortlandville. It is franked with a well-margined (one just a little narrow), red-brown 5-cent Franklin postage stamp (Scott #1) . The stamp has been pen cancelled and a circular Deposit, N.Y. postmark is in the upper left corner. A Philatelic Foundation certifying that this is a genuine usage of Scott #1 on cover will be included along with a transcript of the letter. Judge Wheeler returned to his birthplace, Deposit, shortly after the end of New York's infamous Anti-Rent War during which he served as a judge and presided over a number of trials of long-term sharecroppers who, having become dissatisfied with their legal but draconian leases, attacked and killed landowners while disguised as hooded 'Calico Indians.' Although Wheeler does not mention the Anti-Rent times in his letter, he does note that he had only recently arrived in town and not been able to find an office available to rent so he could relocate his law library. Perhaps his relocation was due in part to local animosity that resulted from the trials. On its own, Wheeler's letter is interesting, and his involvement in the Anti-Rent War is fascinating, however the desirability of this correspondence is greatly increased by the genuine use of the first U. S. postage stamp, the red-brown Franklin 5-cent stamp (Scott #1), to prepay postage from a very small New York town. This is, perhaps, the only extant example of use of S … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRAZILIAN EXPULSION ORDER.]
, , Dated 2 July 1849.. Single sheet (15.2 x 19 cm.), unbound. Ten lines written in ink, in a large, sprawling, legible hand that matches the name of Simões Silva at the end of the document. Foldlines. Light browning. Overall very good. (1 l.) *** Antonio Simões da Silva was chief of police in Rio de Janeiro during the 1840s. At the time, summary deportation was the preferred method for dealing with foreigners who committed crimes in Brazil. After 1841 the chief of police could order expulsions on his own authority, without any formal charges. During a relatively short period in 1849, Simões da Silva is said to have ordered the deportation of 13 Portuguese, one Austrian, and one Chilean, stating that they were of "terrible habits, incorrigible, drunks, and troublemakers who had been convicted and served jail time for various crimes" (Holloway p. 186). The particular crime committed by Castro is not stated. *** On the expulsion of foreign criminals from Rio de Janeiro, see Rosana Barbosa, Immigration and Xenophobia: Portuguese Immigrants in Early 19th Century Rio de Janeiro (2009), p. 89; and Thomas H. Holloway, Policing Rio de Janeiro: Repression and Resistance in a Nineteenth-Century City (1993).

FARADAY, MICHAEL. - [INSCRIBED BY FARADAY TO LORD KELVIN]
London: Richard and John E. Taylor, 1849. Large 4to. (300x231mm). Original blank wrappers. Some small tears. Back strip proffesionally repaired with Japanese paper. With presentation by Faraday in ink on title page: "William Thomson Esq. | St. Peters College | from the Author." (2),41,(1:blank). ¶ First edition, rare offprint issue of "one of the great classics of chemistry and physics" with the extremely attractive presentation inscription from Faraday to William Thomson (later Lord Kelvin), who delivered the first mathematical exposition of Faraday's researches in electricity. Thomson provided an important theoretical direction for Faraday's interpretation of his own experiments and the two colleagues motivated and inspired each other to a degree that the research and knowledge of electricity they possessed and published would not have would have been reached until many years later. The paper itself is of the utmost importance since much of his groundbreaking research published in 1831-1839 contained many shortcomings and errors which in this publication are corrected. "The corrected second edition of volume 1 is preferred, because the first edition (London 1839) contained many errors". (Neville, Historical Chemical Library)."In June 1849 William Thomson wrote to Michael Faraday suggesting that the concept of a uniform magnetic field could be used to predict the motions of small magnetic and diamagnetic bodies. [...] There had been an important exchange of ideas between the two, who had a common interest in explaining voltaic, electrostatic, magnetic, optical, and thermal … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wilkes, Charles
Philadelphia, 1849. 130pp. plus three folding maps, and advertisements. Original printed stiff wrappers. Wrappers worn, soiled, and stained. "Oregon Territory" map and advertisement leaves a bit tanned, else internally clean and very good. In a folding cloth chemise and cloth slipcase, leather label. The only English language edition of this important early guide to the West Coast. Wilkes had conducted extensive surveys in California and Oregon while commanding his famous U.S. exploring expedition on the West Coast in 1841. This work includes material not published with the official report, additional geographical notes supplied by Father De Smet, and material from the Emory and Fremont reports. "In a sense, it constitutes the first Pacific Coast guide" - Howes. The large map of the Sacramento Valley is one of the first large-scale maps of the gold region. The small maps show Upper California and Oregon, respectively. An important addition to gold rush literature, now quite scarce, and especially uncommon in the original wrappers. HOWES W416, "aa."

Perry, Matthew C.
The Moorings," near Tarrytown, N.Y., 1849. [2]; [3]pp., on folded sheets. Quarto and octavo. Old fold lines. Bottom edge of second letter with some minor paper loss, affecting a few letters of text. Very minor soiling. Very good plus. Commodore Matthew Calbraith Perry (1794-1858) writes to his nephew, James DeWolf Perry, concerning a political appointment James had asked his uncle to help him obtain. Both letters are accompanied by James Perry's retained drafts of the letters to which the Commodore is responding. In the first letter, dated Feb. 15, Perry writes that he will do all he can to secure the position in question, but will have to wait until the new administration has settled in: "I will write to my friend and neighbour Col. Webb who is now in Washington; he remains there until after the inauguration; he is one of the leading and most influential Taylor men, and will doubtless be disposed to advocate your interest. There is one thing however that will be necessary to prove and that is your political position, in the state. I am no party man myself, having always abstained from voting excepting and only one instance many years ago to support a personal friend, but I feel assured that the offices will all be given to Whigs or those that profess to be of that party. You had therefore better inform me that I may so mention it in my letter to Col. Webb, whether you are a good and available Whig; otherwise I doubt whether you would have any chance of succeeding." It seems, however, that actions were not fast enough. In the second letter, dated April 7, Perry writes … [Click Below for Full Description]

London W. Nicol Shakespeare Press 1849 - First edition. Large folio (59 x 46 cm), subscription list, pictorial lithographed title, 8 lithographed plates and large floral tailpiece, all hand-coloured and heightened with gum arabic, modern green half morocco gilt preserving original green morocco label, a fine copy. Spectacular South African flora. Roupell (1817-1914) was married to an East India Company official In 1843, her husband was posted to the Cape for a period of service leave and she accompanied him. During her two-year stay in South Africa Roupell whiled away her leisure hours by painting the local flowers that happened to catch her eye. A visitor to the Cape, Nathaniel Wallich, who was at that time in charge of the Calcutta Botanical Garden, and happened to be a guest at the same Cape Town hotel as the Roupells, was struck by the quality of her work. The Roupells returned to Madras in 1845 where Arabella continued her botanical painting. When Wallich retired to London from Calcutta in 1846, he persuaded her to allow him to take along some of her paintings to show to Sir William Jackson Hooker. Hooker was delighted with her work and with Arabella's botanist brother-in-law, George Roupell, chose ten of the plates for publication. Having received the blessing of both Hooker and Wallich, the plates were handed to the eminent Victorian lithographer, Paul Gauci, who prepared the illustrations for the printer W. Nicol of the Shakespeare Press on Pall Mall. The descriptive text accompanying the plates was provided by William Henry Harvey, the Irish botanist. One hundred s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Horatius Flaccus, Quintus.
London: John Murray, 1849. 8vo (22.5 cm, 8.8"). [6], 194, [6], 490, xiv pp.; 8 col. plts. First edition of this => lavishly decorated, deluxe production of Horace's works in the original Latin, with a life of the author written in English by the Rev. Henry Hart Milman. Each page of the preface appears in a color-printed, antiquity-inspired frame (ochre, maroon, blue, green, or violet, with several different styles of frame used); the poems appear in simpler frames, but with each section preceded by a chromolithographed title-page (with a total of eight color plates), and almost every text page bearing an in-text wood engraving done by George Scharf after "remains of ancient art" (an index of the original sources and their locations is present at the back of the volume). => The decorative elements were created by architect and pioneering design theorist Owen Jones.    This volume's price at publication was two guineas which, although less than production cost, priced the work out of the market.

While science was part of the American scene from the nation's early days, its practitioners remained few in number and scattered geographically and among disciplines. AAAS was the first permanent organization formed to promote the development of science and engineering at the national level and to represent the interests of all its disciplines. The AAAS was suspended during the Civil War from 1861-1865, reemerging stronger the following year.

WORSLEY, Rev. Henry
London: Charles Gilpin, 1849. 8vo., xii + 275 + (1)pp. + 12pp. of publisher's advertisements, original blind-stamped charcoal cloth, spine gilt lettered with neat repair at foot. A very good uncut copy. First edition. Worsley shows that parental intemperance / drunkenness was the principal cause of juvenile crime. He confirms in this vivid study that drink ('the monster evil of our country') 'perverts, where it does not prevent, the benefits of education, and is continually training up a succession of victims for the jail and the scaffold'. The author considers particularly the effects of juvenile employment in manufacturing industry (e.g. in Liverpool), the relationship between drunkenness and 'female crime' including prostitution. Henry Worsley (1820-93), a Suffolk clergyman, was Rector of Easton in 1849 but soon moved to Earl Soham where he took in pupils. In 1856 he published a Life a Martin Luther.> [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
