      Washington, D.C., 1850. [8]pp., on two bifolia. Previously folded. Light staining and several separations to first bifolium. About very good. In a blue morocco box. An effusive and chatty letter from Sam Houston to his cousin, Narcissa B. Hamilton, in January, 1850, from Washington, D.C., during his time as a U.S. Senator. Houston had first met Hamilton, who was from Virginia, when he was in Washington to drum up support for Texas independence in 1834, and his return as a member of Congress allowed him to renew the correspondence. The letter discusses the state of his recent health, describes their children, and gives a humorous appraisal of the capital's social scene. At the outset of the letter, he briefly addresses the continuing effects of the shoulder wounds he received at San Jacinto, saying that, "You will perceive from my hand writing, that the wound in my shoulder has affected my nerves. I thank kind Heaven it is not the effect of age, for in your recollection, you have not seen me in so fine health at this time." The letter goes on affectionately to describe his children: "We have Master Sam, a lad in his seventh year, and his Mother says, 'he is all just such as she would wish him to be.' From this, you will suppose he resembles me. I think he does, in mind & person! Well then we have Nancy, in her fourth year, pretty much Houston only, that she is esteemed beautiful! Next comes Margaret Lea, now in her second year, said to be pretty, but resembles Sam, very much! In short we are greatly blessed in our children! I wish you could see them. You could see them, as [?] wish, as young Highlanders!" After ruminating further on family and health matters, Houston ends his letter with a brief description of social life in Washington: "You will not loose [sic] much by joining in the gayieties of the city this season, as I suppose tho I am not a competent judge, for I do not go to Theatres or Balls. I have attended a few Levees, and have found them extremely crowded. Indeed, they are more crowded than I have seen them, since the days of General Jackson! The demeanor of Mr. Fillmore & his family is very becoming, and makes the Levees agreeable . I see (as the saying is in Texas,) 'the Ladies dress to Kill.' It does seem to me that they dress badly to live! Mrs. Houston don't wear corsetts!!!" A jovial, familial letter from one of the founding fathers of Texas, full of personal detail.

        Specimens of Polytype Ornaments Cast by J. & R. M. Wood, (Late S. & T. Sharwood,) 89, West Smithfield, London

      London: J. & R. M. Wood, [c. 1850]. 4to (280 x 220 mm), over 2000 blocks on 198 leaves, including title and index leaf leaves, all printed on rectos only, 6 folding (one torn with minor loss to image), some occasional light spotting, orig. half morocco, spine tooled in gilt, a little rubbed but a very good copy, title stamped on upper cover in gilt. The blocks are arranged in subjects, which include coats of arms, animals and birds, wagons and coaches, a wide range of sailing ships, trades, baker's labels, horse racing and other sports, agricultural subjects, railway trains, printing presses, fists, views of the Crystal Palace, other London buildings, scenery at home and abroad, miniature scripture history illustrations, three picture alphabets, tea and tobacco labels, borders, and other ornaments. Signed blocks include examples by Ebenezer Landells, Orrin Smith, T. S. Adeney, and others. "This unique collection was commenced by Messrs. Vizetelly and Branston, and considerably improved and extended by the late Richard Mason Wood, founder of the firm of Wood and Sharwoods, and further added to by the late Thomas Sharwood, from the sale of Messrs. Alexander Wilson & Son's Foundry, and one hundred new sheets just printed by Wood and Company. The cost of the original Engravings have exceeded the sum of Fifteen Thousand Pounds. This is not only the largest and most varied assortment in the world, but for practical utility, unequalled."—Introduction. Richard Austin, a punch-cutter, founded the Imperial Letter Foundry some time before 1819. Later he was followed by his son George Austin (as Austin & Son in 1824) who succeeded to the business. On the death of George, the foundry was acquired by Richard Mason Wood, who subsequently, in 1833, in partnership with Samuel and Thomas Sharwood, moved to 120, Aldersgate Street, under the name of the Austin Letter Foundry. On Wood's death in 1845 the firm became S. and T. Sharwood. According to Bigmore & Wyman "after the death of the last surviving member of the Sharwoods, Thomas, the foundry was thrown into Chancery. It subsequently passed to two sons [James and Richard Mason] of R. M. Wood. They removed it from Aldergate-street to 89, West Smithfield, and thence to Farringdon-road, and here carried on business besides as printers' brokers, manufactures of materials, also publishing the Typographic Advertiser." Not listed on Copac or OCLC; however, there appears to be a copy at St. Brides Library. Bigmore & Wyman, III, p.98; Reed & Johnson, pp. 352-54; Gray, Nineteenth Century Ornamented Typefaces, p. 169.

        A collection documenting the early life of Samuel Clemens and his family in Iowa

      Various places, mainly Iowa, 1850 TWAIN IN LOVE IN IOWA. This unique collection of photographs, books, letters, and other objects is from the Creel family, Samuel Clemens's relations on his mother's side. One highlight of the collection is the charming ambrotype portrait of young Ella Creel, one of Sam's "favorite companions" and a "one-time sweetheart." The photograph dates to the time of that youthful flirtation, when Ella was in her teens and Sam was about twenty. In 1854 Sam Clemens's older brother Orion left Hannibal, Missouri and moved with his wife Mollie to her hometown, Keokuk, Iowa. They were accompanied by their widowed mother Jane, who had family in Iowa. Young Sam Clemens traveled east working as a printer and then came to Iowa. He worked on his brother's newspaper in Keokuk in 1855-56 before becoming an apprentice riverboat pilot. Later Orion and his wife moved away, but by 1874 they had returned, and their mother Jane moved to Keokuk as well. As a result, Twain had early and enduring ties to the area and its people. He referred to his Iowa relatives in his correspondence, and he visited Keokuk on a number of occasions throughout his life. The collection, which includes a number of otherwise unknown objects, comprises: 1. Mary Eleanor "Ella" Creel (1841-1894). Photograph portrait as a teenage girl. Ambrotype. Ella Creel was the daughter of Mary Ann Patterson and Robert Paxton Creel and thus was a distant cousin of Sam Clemens on his mother's side. In April 1859 Sam Clemens became a licensed riverboat pilot on the Mississippi between Keokuk, Iowa and New Orleans. He asked his mother and a friend to chaperone Ella Creel on a trip to New Orleans on a boat he piloted, proudly taking the three women on a tour of the city when they arrived. According to Twain's biographer Albert Bigelow Paine, Ella was one of Sam's "favorite companions" and a "one-time sweetheart." 2. Mary Eleanor "Ella" Creel (1841-1894). Photograph portrait as an adult. Ambrotype. 3. Mollie Clemens. Photograph portrait. Cabinet card albumen print. Mollie was the wife of Sam's brother Orion. 4. Charles Riffley. Photograph portrait. Cabinet card albumen print. Charles was the husband of Mollie Clemens's sister. 5. Robert Paxton Creel (1815-1883). Photograph portrait. Albumen print (6 x 8 in.). Inscribed by Creel on verso "For David C. Walker from his Grand Pa." Father of Sam Clemens's sweetheart Ella, Robert P. Creel was cousin of Samuel Clemens's mother Jane Lampton Clemens. Creel's father John married Polly Casey, a sister of Margaret Casey, who married Benjamin Lampton and was mother of Jane Lampton (later Clemens), the author's mother. Curiously, Robert Creel was succeeded in the Iowa state legislature in 1856 by a man named Tom Sawyer. It has been suggested that this is the source of the name of Twain's character. 6. Margaret Creel Scott. Photograph portrait. Cabinet card albumen print. Margaret was Ella Creel's sister. 7. Mark Twain, Innocents Abroad (1870). Signed by Ella Creel's brother Joseph. 8. Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Poetical Works (1867). Signed by Ella Creel's sister Abba. 9. Perrin, Fables (1839). Signed by Ella Creel's sister Abba. 10. Pamela Moffett (Sam Clemens's sister). Autograph letter signed to Jane Clemens (1877). In this chatty letter to their mother, Sam's sister discusses family matters, refers to Orion and Mollie (with whom Jane was living in Keokuk), and gives reading recommendations for her brother "Sammy." Pamela is said to have been the model for Tom's cousin Mary in Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. 11. Jane Clemens (Samuel Clemens's mother), signed napkin. Linen napkin or handkerchief with the ink signature of Jane Clemens. Jane was a major influence in Sam's life, and she figures in several of his books, most notably as Tom Sawyer's Aunt Polly. Provenance: a fine Clemens.

Autore: Michelangelo Pinto Editore: Alessandro Fontana Anno di pubblicazione: 1850, seconda edizione. Opera completa I moti del 1848, detti anche rivoluzione del '48 o Primavera dei popoli furono un'ondata di moti rivoluzionari borghesi che sconvolsero l'Europa nel 1848 e nel 1849. Scopo dei moti fu abbattere i governi della Restaurazione per sostituirli con governi liberali. Il loro impatto storico fu così profondo e violento che nel linguaggio corrente è entrata in uso l'espressione «fare un quarantotto» per sottintendere una improvvisa confusione e scompiglio. La prima agitazione europea del 1848 si verificò in Italia: la rivoluzione siciliana che esplose il 12 gennaio di quell'anno, che rappresentò la prima miccia dell'esplosione europea. L'insurrezione siciliana, infatti, spinse in un primo momento i Borbone a concedere il ritorno nell'Isola alla costituzione del 1812. Seguì una rivoluzione a Napoli, il 27, che costrinse, due giorni dopo, Ferdinando II a promettere una Costituzione, promulgata l'11 febbraio. Lo stesso 11 febbraio Leopoldo II di Toscana, cugino primo dell'imperatore Ferdinando I d'Austria, concesse la Costituzione, nella generale approvazione dei suoi sudditi. L'esempio borbonico fu seguito da Carlo Alberto di Savoia con lo Statuto Albertino e da Papa Pio IX con lo Statuto Fondamentale. Solo il re piemontese mantenne però lo Statuto. In Sicilia il parlamento proclamò in marzo l'indipendenza, che sarebbe durata fino al maggio 1849. Nel napoletano la concessione e la successiva repressione delle libertà costituzionali, portò dal maggio al settembre di quell'anno a una serie di moti. In tutto il Regno Lombardo-Veneto scoppiarono rivolte, come le Cinque giornate di Milano che sfociarono nella prima guerra di indipendenza. Nello Stato Pontificio una rivolta interna estromise papa Pio IX dai suoi poteri temporali e portò alla costituzione della Repubblica Romana. La rivoluzione delle Cinque giornate di Milano e altre proteste indussero il Re Carlo Alberto a dichiarare guerra all'Austria. Le truppe vennero presto sconfitte e solo quelle francesi poterono far retrocedere gli austriaci. La successiva ascesa al trono di Vittorio Emanuele II fece del Piemonte il motore propulsore del processo di unificazione italiana che tuttavia si sarebbe ottenuto solo nel 1861. Per quanto i Moti del '48 furono sedati abbastanza velocemente, le vittime furono decine di migliaia: il destino della democrazia europea ci è sfuggito di mano dichiarerà Pierre-Joseph Proudhon. Gli storici concordano che la Primavera dei popoli fu, alla fin fine, soprattutto un sanguinoso fallimento, se si eccettua la concessione dello Statuto Albertino nel Regno di Sardegna da parte di Carlo Alberto di Savoia, l'unica costituzione non revocata di quelle concesse o votate nel 1848-49. Vi furono tuttavia radicali e notevoli effetti a lungo termine: Germania e Italia sarebbero presto arrivate all'unificazione facendo leva anche sulla necessità di autodeterminazione dei popoli. Analogamente l'Ungheria sarebbe giunta ad un parziale riconoscimento della propria autonomia (a discapito della popolazione slava) grazie all'Ausgleich del 1867. In Prussia e Austria fu abolito il feudalesimo, mentre in Russia fu eliminata la servitù della gleba nel 1861. L'Opera vanta 306 tavole allegorico - caricaturali sullo stato dell'Italia del tempo, incisione su rame ricca di significato e rappresentazione mediante satirica dissacrante della condizione della nostra penisola oppressa. Le tavole furono in parte riprese dal giornale romano Don Pirlone, quotidiano, uscito dal 1settembre 1848 al 2 luglio 1849 (con una interruzione dl 29 aprile al 7 maggio 1849), ma in parte furono realizzate appositamente per questa opera. Tra gli incisori sono presenti anche i nomi di Ratti, Vaiani, Monneret, Gallucci, Pichi, Masutti. Il titolo Don Pirlone deriva quasi sicuramente da una maschera creata dallo scrittore satirico Girolamo Gigli (1660 - 1722). Si trattava di una specie di Tartufo molieresco, ispirato ad una figura reale, il canonico Feliciati di Sarteano. Nei tre volumi l'avvocato Michelangiolo Pinto raccolse tutto il pubblicato del giornale, che fu il più temuto e allo stesso tempo il più apprezzato tra i molteplici giornali satirici che si pubblicavano nella Roma di Pio IX all'epoca delle grandi riforme volute dal Papa. I romani gli dedicarono perfino una canzone (Davanti un numero di gran persone - che mi salutano Viva Pirlone!). Anche gli avversari politici ne riconobbero l'efficacia e la bellezza delle tavole. Il 22 marzo 1849 apparve con il cappello frigio per incitare alla resistenza contro i francesi. Il Pinto, nato a Roma nel 1818, spentosi nel 1910, già comproprietario ed articolista del celebre periodico satirico "DonPirlone", riparò a Torino dopo la caduta della Repubblica Romana; scrivendo la presente opera egli vi trasfuse lo stesso mordace spirito polemico che aveva animato il quasi omonimo periodico: "Edotti dall'esperienza, sappiamo quale profonda traccia lascino nell'animo umano gli incancellabili colpi del ridicolo". Bertarelli, 6395. Bibliogr. d. età del Risorgimento, II, 249.

        An extraordinary collection of 26 photographic portraits of leading photographers

      Various places, 1850s-90s 26 photographs. Various processes. Many of the portraits were taken at the studios of the photographers themselves. This superb collection of photographs of photographers documents the spread of photography from its inventor Daguerre through the art's earliest practitioners in the United States and ultimately to the great photographers of the Civil War and the American West. The collection begins with a portrait of Louis Daguerre. Portraits of American photographic pioneers include Samuel Morse, who brought Daguerre's process to America, and John William Draper, the American scientist who helped to perfect it. Mathew Brady, greatest of all 19th-century American photographers, is represented by a fine CDV portrait and an image from the end of the war in which Brady inserts himself into a group portrait of U.S. Grant's staff. Brady trained photography giants Alexander Gardner and Timothy O'Sullivan, both of whom are represented with stunning portraits. Finally, the collection includes runs of portraits of photographers who made famous portraits of Lincoln, associates of Gardner, American regional photographers, some with their photographic equipment, and photographers of the American West including William Henry Jackson and Carleton Watkins. This remarkable assemblage of rare portraits, which would be impossible to duplicate at any price, vividly documents the lineage of photography from Daguerre through his leading heirs in the United States. Examples include: 1. Louis Daguerre. Inventor of photography 2. Samuel Morse. Artist and inventor who introduced the daguerreotype to America and trained the first generation of American photographers. 3. John William Draper. Pioneering photographer who made crucial improvements to the daguerreotype and who took the first successful pictures of the moon and of a woman's face. 4. Mathew Brady. Towering figure in 19th-century American photography. "More than any other American, Brady shaped the role of the photographer as a national historian" (Trachtenberg). 5. Alexander Gardner. Leading Civil War photographer and pioneer of photojournalism. 6. Timothy O'Sullivan. Major Civil War photographer who took the first 44 photos in Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War, and later a major photographer of the American West. 7. Carleton Watkins. Giant of photography of the American West and "the greatest American photographer before Stieglitz" (Naef) 8. William Henry Jackson. Most famous photographer of the American West in his time. and others Please inquire for a full description.

        Magnificent Beecher Family Photograph Collection

      Highly important ambrotype 1. The Beecher Family (Harriet Beecher Stowe, Lyman Beecher, Henry Ward Beecher, Catharine Beecher, and Thomas, William, Edward, Charles, Isabella, & Mary Beecher). Mathew Brady Studios, 1850s. Half plate ambrotype. Original coloring of cheeks. Contemporary case, lacking upper cover, mat with stamp of G.M. Howe, Portland and Upton, Maine. Small scratch, some spotting due to emulsion separation, but overall the emulsion is intact and the image is clear with good contrast. This splendid and rare Mathew Brady Studio group portrait de- picts ten members of the celebrated Beecher family. In this family portrait, Lyman Beecher is seated at center, flanked by his four daughters (Harriet, Catharine, Mary, and Isabella). Behind them stand the five of the seven brothers (William, Edward, Henry Ward, Charles, and Thomas--George had died in 1843 and James was a missionary in China). The Beechers were one of America's most famous families. Patri- arch Lyman Beecher, famed clergyman, abolitionist, and social reformer, was a central figure of the Second Great Awakening. Harriet is most famous as the author of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, one of the best-known men of his day, was an evangelist, abolitionist, advocate of women's suffrage, proponent of evolution, and social reformer. Catharine Beecher was one of the leading advocates of female education. Charles Beecher was a distinguished clergyman, author, and composer of hymns, and his brother Thomas K. Beecher, also a minister, is best remembered as a close friend of Samuel Clemens. Isabella Beecher was a major figure in the women's suffrage movement. This ambrotype precedes the other famous Brady photograph of the Beechers, the 1861 portrait of Harriet, Lyman, and Henry (albumen print, National Portrait Gallery). The case is stamped George M. Howe, listed as a Daguerreian at 112 Middle Street, Portland, Maine from 1853 to 1860. The use of a case from a gallery in Maine may be explained by Harriet's move to Brunswick, Maine in 1850 when her husband Calvin Ellis Stowe secured a teaching position at Bowdoin. A later albumen print at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center in Hartford bears the Brady stamp. Colored Salt Print by Mathew Brady 2. Lyman Beecher. Mathew Brady Studios, ca. 1856. Hand-colored salted paper photograph (7 1⁄4 x 6 in.). Half plate daguerreotype case with brass mat and red velvet retainer in double- hinged, push-button plain leather case with "BRADY'S GALLERY, 205 & 359 BROADWAY NEW YORK" stamped in dark red velvet case lining. Case edges heavily worn; without glass. Clergyman, educator, and social reformer, Lyman Beecher embodied the shift from the harsh, demanding Puritan faith of the Second Great Awakening to a religion that found its expression in larger society. A leading figure in Calvinist churches in New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, Beecher played a key role in founding Yale Divinity School. In 1833, Beecher and his family moved west to Cincinnati, where he became president of the Lane Theological Seminary, a training ground for the religious leaders of the abolition movement. "Magnetic in personality, incisive and powerful in manner of expression, Beecher was in his prime one of the most eloquent of American pulpit orators" (NNDB). Exhibited: National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Fogg Art Museum (Harvard University), and International Center of Photography. Reference: featured in "A Gallery of Images," Mary Panzer, Mathew Brady and the Image of History (Smithsonian, 1997). Signed by Harriet Beecher Stowe 3. Harriet Beecher Stowe. George H. Hastings, ca. 1880s. Albumen print, cabinet card mount. Photographer's studio stamp on the verso: "Geo H. Hastings / Photographer. / 147 Tremont St. Cor. West St. / Boston, Mass / Elevator to Studio." Signed by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Daughter of Lyman Beecher, Harriet Beecher Stowe is most famous for her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin, serialized in 1851-2.
