        A fine collection of Saint's Cards, each with moveable flower emblem.

      Einsiedeln: Charles and Nicholas Benziger; Prague: I.F. Marouschek, J. Pashmeyer; Ufer: N. Kremplsetzer, [ca, 1850]. - 66 fine lithographed cards with original hand-colour (ca 4 x 3 inches), tipped-in to loose sheets (10 x 13 4/8 inches) preserved in a tan cloth clamshell box. Provenance: the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, their sale 21st November 1986, lot 122 A Superb collection of finely lithographed and hand-coloured cards, each depicting a particular saint concealed beneath an exquisite moveable flower emblem, the common and scientific name of the flower, the name of the saint, and a passage from scripture are all printed in German either above or below the image. While most of the cards were printed in Prague (44), 4 were issued by the esteemed firm of Benziger in Einsiedeln, 2 by N. Kremplsetzer in Ufer, one by W. Hoffman, and another 17 without imprint. Charles and Nicholas Benziger succeeded their father in his small publishing business in the Swiss mountain village of Einsiedeln in 1833, and "began the lithographing of religious pictures, as well as the coloring of them by hand, before the introduction of chromolithography. Charles Benziger, (1799 - 1873), a man of unusual strength and energy with a good classical education, devoted himself especially to the literary end of the business. In 1840 the "Einsiedler Kalender" was founded; it is still published and furnishes an interesting illustration of the development of the art of printing. Nicholas Benziger (1808 - 1864), took charge of the technical part of the business, proved himself a pioneer, introducing to the mountain village of Einsiedeln a series of improved trades methods as they appeared from time to time in the great centres of Europe and America. Under his guidance the work of book-binding, which was formerly carried on in the family at home, was systematized. In 1844 the old hand-press was superseded by the first power press. Stereotyping was introduced in 1846; in 1856 steel and copper printing; and in 1858 electrotyping. In 1853, a house was opened in New York" (Catholic Encyclopedia online). From the distinguished library of the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, originally dedicated in 1961 as the Rachel McMasters Miller Hunt Botanical Library, an international center for bibliographical research and service in the interests of botany and horticulture, as well as a center for the study of all aspects of the history of the plant sciences. By 1971 the Hunt Botanical Library's activities had so diversified that the name was changed to Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation. C [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        GOLD SCALE In ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER'S WOODEN CASE, Circa 1850. E. Fabreguettes Fils & Morra. William Street, 73. New York

      New York: E. Fabreguettes Fils & Morra, (n. d.). Circa 1850. Wooden case with a hinged lid and hook clasps, seller's label to inside of lid. Interior has carved compartments for the brass scale and weights, including a small compartment for grain weights with a hinged lid. Light general wear to case and weights, brass balances a bit tarnished. Only contains the three grain weights, so perhaps others missing? VG overall.. Suspension gold scale made of brass, with troy and grain weights. Troy weights nested, ranging from 1/16 to 4 oz; grain weights include 2, 6, and 10. Case: 1-11/16" x 6-11/16" x 3-1/8". Scale, when hanging: ~8-1/4" x 7-1/8", brass balances 2-1/2" in diameter. In 1850, the New York firm of E. Fabreguettes, Fils & Morra, importers of French fancy goods, attempted to capitalize on the California Gold Rush by adding gold scales to their wares. Notices in several of the city's papers in late October and early November of that year, including the Monday, November 4th edition of The Evening Post, advertised the following: "GOLD SCALES. || The subscribers offer for sale the best and most approved pattern of French Standard Gold Scales, adjusted exactly to the United States Mint Standard, of every size and weight. || These scales are so made that they take but very little compass when packed, and are much more neatly and conveniently finished, than either the English, German, or American article. As we have all that are made of this pattern, parties having orders for shipment to California, are solicited to examine them before purchasing elsewhere. Also for sale, a variety of French fancy goods, accordeons [sic], &c. || E. Fabreguettes, Fils & Morra, 73 William Street, (up stairs.)." E. Fabreguettes, Fils & Morra was located at 61 Maiden Lane until at least 1847, moving to their William Street address in 1848 or 1849. No later advertisements for these scales appear to have been issued in New York newspapers, leading us to conjecture that the firm's venture into the gold mining market was perhaps not particularly successful. It is, of course, impossible to say with any certainty if this particular scale was originally used during the Gold Rush, though this one here offered was purchased in California, giving rise to possibility it may very well have been. In either case, a nice artifact from the California Gold Rush era.

A complete set bound in 3/4 contemporary red morocco over marbled paper covered boards with matching endpapers, all edges marbled., raised bands gilt, title within one compartment gilt. All hinges and joints are fine and tight, internally clean and bright without foxing. Some rubbing or darkening to bindings. From the library Joseph Greene with his armorial bookplate. A very nice set containing six of the nine extra Christmas numbers.

        Souvenir d'une promenade a Versailles.

      Paris: au Bureau des Galeries Historiques de Versailles Folio (36.5 cm; 14.5"). [6] ff., 50 leaves of plates.. [ca. 1850–55] One of several works with the identical title but from different publishers and with different contents! The present volume contains engravings after paintings in the palace's "Galeries Historiques": the engravers include Leroux, Masson, Thomas, Nargoot, Rebel, Frilley, and many others. Curiously, many engravings bear a faint line of identification reading "Diagraphe et Pantographe Gavard" and they have non-sequential numbering, meaning the images from this source could be and were recombined to form a wide variety of souvenir albums. In this copy all plates are guarded by sheets of heavy paper stock. Binding: In the style of a percaline mosaïquée, but the gilt and mosaic are applied to a textured pebbled cloth. Spine gilt extra with added "mosaic" of green, white, red and blue. Front cover with a blind-stamped border incorporating elegant corner-pieces; within this, "Souvenir de Versailles" gilt-stamped in an arc above a large on-laid crowned coat of arms flanked by banners and flags, this embellished in gilt with rich use of blue, white, red, blue, and green. Rear cover with similar blind-stamped border and a different large gilt-stamped center device strikingly incorporating an on-lay of blue stamped in gilt with a military medal. All edges gilt. Binding as above, rubbed to the underlying boards at the corners of the boards and top of spine slightly pulled with one bit of rubbing. Scattered pale brown stains mostly on interleaves and sometimes visible on versos of plates; some discoloration in some margins of plates and occasionally into one; overwhelmingly a clean copy, remarkably bright and unfoxed. A strong and nice example of this category of "souvenir" and of a gilt mosaic binding.

        14 Briefe m. eigenh. Unterschrift.

      Luzern, 1850-1864. Zus. 22 S., Gr.-8° bzw. 4°. „[...] Gefahr drohte für die Schweizergarde jedoch nicht nur aus Rom, sondern auch aus Luzern. Die 1848 an die Macht gekommene liberale Luzerner Regierung wollte im Sinne der ersten Bundesverfassung der Schweiz und der Luzerner Standesverfassung bis 1849 sämtliche Truppen zurückrufen, darunter auch die Luzerner Schweizergardisten. Letztlich war es der päpstliche Geschäftsträger in Luzern, Giuseppe Bovieri, der die Luzerner Regierung überzeugen konnte, dass die Schweizergarde in Rom kein normales militärisches Korps war und es bei den laufenden Verhandlungen nicht um eine neue Kapitulation, sondern eigentlich um ein Dienstreglement in Ergänzung zur Kapitulation von 1825 gehe. So war es also der päpstliche Vertreter in Luzern, der die Garde gewissermassen sowohl gegen Luzern wie auch Rom verteidigt hatte [...]. Giuseppe Bovieri, 1848 bis 1864 Geschäftsträger der Luzerner Nuntiatur, ist eine der wichtigsten Persönlichkeiten der päpstlichen Diplomatie in der Schweiz, dessen Tätigkeit leider noch nicht in extenso aufgearbeitet ist“ (U. Fink u.a., Hirtenstab und Hellebarde. Die Päpstliche Schweizergarde in Rom 1506-2006, S. 264). - „[...] Als Nachfolger Alessandro Maciotis verblieb er auch nach dessen formellen Rücktritt 1850 bis zu seinem Weggang 1864 Geschäftsträger der Nuntiatur. Damit brachte die Kurie klar zum Ausdruck, dass sie die nach dem Sonderbundskrieg eingetretenen Veränderungen von 1847-48 mit der Schaffung des Bundesstaates nicht als rechtmässig anerkannte. Bovieri lehnte die neue Verfassung von 1848 ab, ohne dagegen Protest einzulegen. Zurückhaltend in der Öffentlichkeit, suchte er durch persönl. Einflussnahme und Koordination zu wirken, wie er dies etwa bei den kirchl.-polit. Auseinandersetzungen im Kt. Freiburg tat. Bovieri lehnte auch nach dem konservativen Umschwung von 1856 ein Konkordat mit dem Kt. Freiburg ab, weil dieses der Genehmigung durch den Bund bedurft hätte. In der Basler Seminarfrage 1858 verschärfte Bovieri die Situation durch eine Intervention, die zu grundsätzl. Kritik der Radikalen an der Nuntiatur Anlass bot. Im Konflikt um die Errichtung eines Tessiner Bistums verurteilte Bovieri die staatskirchl. Gesetzgebung scharf“ (Urban Fink in: Historisches Lexikon der Schweiz). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius\' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Mislin, Bovieri, Luzern, Schweiz, Helvetica, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.
