        L.A.S., Ste Pélagie 2 octobre 1851, à un «cher et ancien collègue».

      - 3 pages et demie in-8 à en-tête du journal Le Peuple de 1850. Proudhon a été transféré de la Conciergerie à Sainte-Pélagie, près de sa famille; c’est «comme si j’étais aux arrêts dans ma chambre»; il peut voir sa femme de sa fenêtre et lui parler. Mais on ne lui permet plus les trois jours de sortie par mois. «J’ai répondu que je me considérais comme prisonnier de guerre, non comme coupable mis en pénitence; que je sortais sur parole, c’est-à-dire sous la condition de rentrer à l’heure dite, et de ne me mêler en rien à la politique [.] et que je n’entendais subir aucune prescription qui pût changer le caractère de la détention politique, telle que je la conçois et la comprends». Mais, au ministère, «on veut absolument que je sois un criminel, et que je me tienne pour tel. Si on use de modération envers ma personne, [.] c’est qu’on espère obtenir ma conversion. Prisonnier de guerre ! Cela sonne mal aux oreilles du Gouvernement, qui, comme l’Église, se croit infaillible, et hors de lui, ne voit qu’erreur et délit». - Proudhon est «double père de famille [.] avec la plénitude de l’existence, il me semble que j’ai acquis une plénitude de volonté, de force, et d’idée, que nul célibataire n’obtiendra jamais. [.] ce qui a fait la force incomparable du Peuple Romain, pendant 6 siècles, c’est que ces gens-là, soldats, consuls, sénateurs, etc., étaient tous pères de famille; [.] nous n’avons plus ce caractère. On se marie par intérêt, ou par amour; on se marie pour être riche, ou pour nager dans la volupté. Double erreur, double insulte au mariage». II faut des femmes «simples, matrones, laborieuses, sévères, retirées, modestes, et soumises [.] Il n’y a plus de pères de famille en France: et je vois approcher le jour où la France ne sera plus une nation.» Proudhon souhaiterait voir son ami, malgré leur différence complète de convictions. Le système qu’élabore Proudhon sur la nature et la société ne lui est «pas encore apparu dans son intégralité», mais c’est pour lui une certitude. «si mainte fois le spectacle d’un chrétien honnête homme et père de famille m’a rendu respectable une foi qui n’est pas la mienne, j’ai l’ambition à mon tour de rendre respectable, par ma vie privée, les opinions que je professe» [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        George Pickett pays for his sword and first officers uniform purchased at the outbreak of the Mexican War

      [Boston], November 14, 1850. 7.25" x 10". "Autograph Endorsement Signed, ""Receipt in full from Earl Jr & Co pr Attorney GE Pickett,"" accomplished on the docket of a manuscript Document Signed, ""Charles D. Solding[?] Agent for Earle & Co.,"" 1 page, 7.25"" x 10"", Washington, November 14, 1850, being an account documenting clothing purchases by Pickett from clothiers John Earle Jr. & Co. of Boston between May 1844 and August 1846. Light soiling along mailing creases on verso, else fine condition.A historic document, chronicling Pickett's clothing purchases, mostly made at the time of his graduation from West Point in June 1846. His purchases included (on May 30, 1846): ""1 Bl[ac]k dress coat 25 - 1 Unif[orm] frock 25... 1 tweed sock 8 - 1 p[ai]r bl[ac]k p[an]ts 9.50 ... 1 pr fancy doe[?] pts 8.50 - 1 fancy vest 5... 1 Blk satin vest 5 - 6 shirts 15... 3 prs white dl. pts. 13.50 6 Byron Collars 2 ... 6 camb[rick] h[an]d k[erchi]fs - 1 Sock[?] 8-"" On June 4, Pickett ordered ""1 pr silk gloves 1 1 pr suspenders 1.25..."" After his graduation, Pickett travelled to Richmond, Virginia on furlough awaiting orders which did not arrive until late July 1846 when he was assigned to the 8th Infantry, then in Matamoras, Mexico. On August 21, 1846, Pickett ordered the final touches to his first uniform as a commissioned officer in the United States Army: ""1 und. frock 25- Sword 18, Sash 18""Pickett reported to his regiment on November 9, 1846, two months later than scheduled, and much to the annoyance of his commanding officer, Colonel J.D. Clark. Although in his explanation, Pickett blamed a series of travel mishaps, low water levels, and other obstacles, part of the explanation may have been that he was still awaiting the delivery of his sword which he had only ordered in late August. (Gordon, General George e. Pickett in Life and Legend, 2002, 18-19; Pickett to J. D. Clark, November 9, 1846, Letters Received, Adjutant General's Office, RG 94, National Archives) It appears by the account that the sword did not arrive right away as he was credited on the account for several articles including ""1 sword - not sent."" In addition to his graduation purchases, Pickett had obtained clothing from the same Boston clothiers in May of 1844, which included ""1 Uniform frock."" As to his payment, it was less punctual than his ability to report to duty on time. At the start of the Mexican War, Pickett's balance with the Boston clothier was over $200, an amount he did not entirely satisfy until November 14, 1850. (His tardiness in accounts cost him an additional $40 in interest.)The United States had declared war on Mexico just before Pickett's graduation, and the army was in great need of fresh officers to fill out the ranks. Despite his tardiness in reporting for duty, Pickett gained early fame by carrying the colors over the parapet during the Battle of Chapultepec?"a flag handed to him by his comrade, Lt. James Longstreet, who had been wounded at the base of the wall. "

        Magic Lantern Slide of a missionary preaching to a gathering of indigenous people

      1850. A hand-painted magic lantern slide depicting a missionary proselytizing to a group of indigenous people, most likely Maori, gathered around a camp fire. The slide is similar to hand-painted glass slides depicting New Zealand Maori made by W.E. & F. Newton in London in the 1850s. The finely rendered scene shows the Maori, some wearing cloaks and fiber rain capes, their faces illuminated by the glow of the fire, as they listen to the missionary read from a book. The missionary is in the Western dress of the early 1800s and stands before a canvas tent. In the background, the moon shines over a lush landscape of hills and a lake or river. Paint flaking in two small areas, otherwise fine in original wooden frame. (Image measures 2 7/8 inches in diameter [74mm]; wooden frame measures 4 by 6 1/2 inches [100x165mm]).

        Jewish Oath]

      Berdichev 1850 - Jewish Oath. Prsyaznie List. Juryman's Oath. Dukhovnoye Uveshchaniye. Religious Admonition. Administered at the court of Berdichev, October 9, 1850. Folio, printed, folded to form 4 sides, second side without printing but with Cyrillic and Hebrew manuscript. Written in two columns, left in Russian and right in Yiddih in Cyrillic characters, with appended manuscript additions; some slight stains, repairs to border ot affecting text. Since the Middle Ages, Jews in Christian countries, when appearing in civil courts, were required to pronounce oaths on testimony under the most humiliating conditions and were required to appear in court with a rabbi, who addressed the defendant or witness with specially required formal admonitions. The practice continued in many countries until the Emancipation. The oath was administered by Rabbi Liberzon, of Berdichev, in the presence of Public Authority. The rabbi's signature appears here, in Hebrew, as do those of Melech Plicherk, Yechiel Tartakovsky, Leib Grinberg, Yitzko Falchikis, Gerhko Ziskind, Moshko Kagan etc.

Die alte Linde rechts, gepflanzt vom Rektor am 12. Mai 1785, wird bis heute von den Studenten jährlich mit einem Fest geehrt. Dann stürmen sie den Rundetaarn über den spiralenförmigen Aufgang als Zeichen ihrer Inbesitznahme. Das bekrönte Porträt oben mittig stellt König Christian IV. dar, die anderen Porträts zeigen vermutlich die Astronomen Thomas Brugge (1777-1815), Heinrich Christian Schumacher (1780-1850) u.a. - Geglättete Querfalte, ein paar hinterlegte Randeinrisse, ein geschlossenes Wurmlöchlein im Baum.

        Hoaching Canton Pith painting album with 16 dramatic paintings

      Canton:. Ca. 1850.. Vivid and detailed collection of pith paper paintings produced for the export market some time between 1840 and 1860, and sold by Hoaching, a premier silversmith business in Canton, that also produced masterful ivory carving, and apparently also marketed albums such as this. The first four paintings are of birds, each a grouping of two or four different species, meticulously painted with vibrant colors, along with flower shrubs, flowers and surroundings. The following 12 pictures represent life along the Canton River with buildings, boats and people depicted in each. The depiction of many, low elevation islands and the pagoda suggest that some images are of Whampoa; a couple of the images depict steep hillsides with habitations at the foot, suggestive of Hong Kong. Numerous images have people performing what appears to be tai chi; worshipping at a shrine, etc. Hoaching was a premier silversmith concern in Canton that also produced exquisitely carved ivory. He was a prolific craftsman, and his shop was considered on of the most expensive in Canton. (Gray, John Henry. Walks in the Streets of Canton. Victoria, Hong Kong, 1875, p. 292). An album such as this must have been one of the lesser priced momentos in their shop, albeit a very accomplished one. Pith comes from a spongy tree native to the south west of China and its use in paintings started around Canton in the 1820's and had its heyday in the 1830's through 1840's. Photography caused the ultimate demise of the industry. Album size is 15 x 10 inches with an image size 14 x 9 inches. As is usual with these images, none have been signed but the last page bears the ink stamp of "Hoaching Canton" printed in red ink. Unlike many of the other albums that we have handled, these images are full page with beautiful background detail. [It is more common in lesser albums for a single central figure to be performing a task without any background detail.] The paintings are tipped onto the paper page with a woven brocade silk band. Most pictures have small cracks at the margin, usually at the corners, with a few longer cracks, usually in margins. Some of the silk bands are loose, and there is a light watermark in the top of many images. The overall effect of the images is one of bright, vibrant colors with minor faults. One page is loose in the album. The card covers are covered with an aqua silk; the front cover is hand-painted with a garland of flowers, mushrooms and butterflies, with birds and flowers in the center. The front cover is detached, the silk is loose and water marked but the cover image remains attractive. The binding is quite battered.

In the letter we are offering, Lyell writes about his need for a scene-painter to illustrate one of his lectures: "Mr. Gordon of the Princesses Theatre was recommended to me by Mr. Kean when I wanted a drawing done on a large scale in scene-painting style for a lecture which I gave at the Royal Institution. He executed the task very well & expeditiously. "I called at the Princesses Theatre this morning & found that Mr. Gordon is gone to Birmingham for a month—whereas I require some one’s assistance without delay. It is not a laborious undertaking & I write to know whether you have any time at your disposal & whether if so you could do me the favour of calling here tomorrow or Monday . . ." Lyell here refers to the Shakespearean actor Charles Kean (1811-68), who had taken over the management of the Princess’s Theatre in 1850. W. Gordon and F. Lloyds are both listed as scene-painters in Kean’s 1857 edition of The Tempest; it is likely that Lyell was writing to the latter, but erroneously remembered his name as "Lloyd."

        Promotional broadside for the "Royal Chinese Junk" on display at Temple Bar Pier, London

      London, 1850. The sheet is creased and a little rubbed, yet very good condition indeed for an ephemeral item of this nature.. Broadside measuring 220 x 140mm., printed upon both faces, woodblock illustration. Intriguing ephemeral promotion for the first junk to be sailed from China to England: the Keying sailed from Hong Kong during December 1846 and arrived in England in March 1848, following an arduous voyage of 477 days. Eighty-five feet in length and manned by a Chinese crew under the command of one Captain Kellet, the junk caused a sensation upon her arrival. By nature a seafaring people, the British were fascinated by this exotic vessel that had proven her worth during the long open ocean voyage. Indeed, some years after the public sensation had abated, the Keying was dismantled in an English shipyard for research purposes.This broadside spruiks the junk as 'The Greatest Novelty in Europe' and features a detailed woodblock illustration of the Keying (the public were welcomed aboard at the price of one shilling per head). Superlative praise from The Times is quoted on the broadside as follows: "There is not a more interesting Exhibition in the vicinity of London, one step across the entrance and you are in the Chinese world - you have quitted the Thames for the vicinity of Canton".The broadside is not dated yet a contemporary manuscript notation reads 'June 1850'.

The second edition of special interest because of the editors lengthy preface in which he talks about Thompson's philosophy, biography and his early decision to turn vegetarian and abstinent ! The editor, William Pare is of great interest to us.. London, Wm. S. Orr and Co., 1850. Octavo. XXXII, 463 pages. Hardcover (contemporary, blindstamped cloth covered boards with new, matching spine). The corners stronger bumped but this extremely rare Volume in overall very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. The second edition of special interest because of the editors lengthy preface in which he talks about Thompson's philosophy, biography and his early decision to turn vegetarian and abstinent ! The editor, William Pare is of great interest to us. William Thompson (1775 ?- 28 March 1833) was an Irish political and philosophical writer and social reformer, developing from utilitarianism into an early critic of capitalist exploitation whose ideas influenced the Cooperative, Trade Union and Chartist movements as well as Karl Marx. Born into the Anglo-Irish Ascendancy of wealthy landowners and merchants of Cork society, his attempt to will his estate to the cooperative movement after his death sparked a long court case as his family fought successfully to have the will annulled. According to E. T. Craig, this decision to will his estate to the cooperative movement was taken after a visit to the pioneering Ralahine Commune. Born in Cork, William was the son and heir of one of the most prosperous merchants of that city, Alderman John Thompson, who held, amongst other offices, that of Mayor in 1794. William inherited the small trading fleet and landed estate near Glandore, West Cork after his father's death in 1814. Rejecting the role of absentee landlord commonly led by those of a similar situation, William based his living quarters on the estate and despite many travels, invested much time with the tenants on the estate introducing agricultural innovations, services and education for children aimed at improving the welfare and prosperity of the families present. Victim of weak health from an early age, Thompson became a non-smoker, teetotaller and vegetarian for the last 13 years of his life. These abstemious habits, he explained helped him in concentrating on his reading and writing. Nonetheless, by the 1830s he was suffering from a chest affliction that finally killed him on 28 March 1833. He had never married and left no direct heir. An enthusiastic student of the writers and ideas of the Enlightenment, particularly Condorcet, Thompson became a convinced egalitarian and democrat. His support for the French Revolution earned him the label of "Red Republican" from Cork society and his support for advocates of Catholic emancipation in elections further alienated him from the rest of his wealthy Protestant kith and kin. Thompson was greatly impressed by the utilitarianism of Jeremy Bentham with whom he corresponded and established a friendship, later staying at the English philosopher's house for several months in 1821?-22 while visiting London. As well as Bentham, Thompson read and corresponded with other utilitarian contemporaries such as James Mill and was influenced, both positively and negatively, by William Godwin and Thomas Malthus. His desire to overcome the limitations of Godwin's "intellectual speculations" and Malthus's "mechanical speculations" led him to propose a new synthesis: social science ?- Thompson was the first to introduce this term ?- would combine political economy's concern with scientific materialism with utilitarianism's concern with rational morality. It was the contrasting ideas of Godwin and Malthus that spurred Thompson into the project of research into the role of distribution in political economy that led him to London and, in 1824, the publication of "An Inquiry into the Principles of the Distribution of Wealth most conducive to Human Happiness" . Thompson had also become acquainted with the work of the French utopian socialists including Charles Fourier, Henri Saint-Simon and the economist Sismondi. In the Inquiry, Thompson follows the line of the labour theory of value put forward by Adam Smith. However he characterises the appropriation of the lion's share of surplus value by the capitalist owner of the tools of production as exploitation. He rejects the Malthus/Mill proposition that any increase in the wage of the workers can only result in their further immiseration, noting the self-serving nature of this theory for capitalists pressing for legislation to outlaw workers efforts to raise their wages. By applying the utilitarian principle of "the greatest good for the greatest number" to the existing and possible alternative schemes of distribution, Thompson comes down on the side of an egalitarian distribution of the product. One of Thompson's colleagues in the Cooperative movement, John Minter Morgan, made the observation that he was the first to coin the term competitive to describe the existing economic system. The case for the originality of this work is further made by Max Nettlau who states: "[Thompson's] book, however, discloses his own evolution; having started with a demand for the full product of labour as well as the regulation of distribution, he ended up with his own conversion to communism, that is, unlimited distribution." In 1827 fellow "Ricardian socialist" Thomas Hodgskin published Labour Defended which also characterised the appropriation of the lion's share of the fruits of production by landlord and capitalist as exploitation defrauding the worker of the full product of their labour. However, Hodgskin proposed that the road to economic justice for the labourer was through a reformed competitive system. Thompson replied with Labor Rewarded defending cooperative communism against Hodgskin's unequal wages. Although he rejected the political and economic implications of Malthus' essay on population, Thompson recognised that, particularly in Ireland, unrestrained population growth did pose the threat of rising poverty. As such he was like Bentham and Francis Place an advocate of the benefits of contraception. Thompson's development of a critique of the contemporary status of women was most strongly influenced by his long-term close friendship with Anna Wheeler. He had met Wheeler while staying with Bentham and they moved in those utilitarian circles that included James Mill. It was the publication of the latter's "On Government" which called for the vote for men only, that aroused the fervent opposition of both Wheeler and Thompson and to the rebuttal in Appeal of One Half the Human Race... Thompson and others of the Cooperative movement have tended to be somewhat unfairly subsumed under the political label of Owenism. In fact, although his writings and social experiments at New Lanark had helped to bring the cooperative movement together, many, Thompson included, were critical of Owen's authoritarian and anti-democratic tendencies. Thompson further distrusted Owen's courtship of rich and powerful patrons, believing that the rich as a class could be never be expected to be in favour of any project of emancipation for the labouring poor as this would threaten their privilege. He also believed in the necessity of the workers in any co-operative community having eventual security of ownership of the community's land and capital property. He gained a considerable following within the cooperative movement for these positions and it was to distinguish themselves from Owen's positions that this wing of the movement began to adopt the label of "socialist or communionist" (Letter to "The Cooperative Magazine", London, November 1827, cited by OED as first documented use of socialist) rather than "Owenist". These differences led to open confrontation between Thompson and Owen at the Third Cooperative Congress held in 1832 in London. Owen, perhaps discouraged by the failure of his attempted community at New Harmony, maintained that it was necessary to wait for Government and Stock Exchange support and investment into large scale communities. Thompson and his supporters contended that they must move towards establishing independent small scale communities based on the movement's own resources. The argument was not resolved at that congress and by the following one Thompson was unable to attend probably as a result of the illness that was to lead to his death in another five months. Karl Marx had come across Thompson's work on a visit to Manchester in 1845 and cites it in passing in The Poverty of Philosophy (1847) and also in Capital itself. However the same can be said of other of the proto-socialist political economists such as Thomas Hodgskin, John Gray, John Francis Bray. It seems surprising then, that the likes of Beatrice and Sidney Webb would characterise Marx as "the illustrious disciple" of Thompson and Hodgskin. Sentiments also echoed by the likes of Harold Laski and other British historians of socialism. In this they were accepting the earlier thesis in Anton Menger's Right to the Whole Produce of Labour (1899), amalgamating all the aforementioned into a homogeneous category of Ricardian socialists which obscured the important differences between Thompson's communist critique of Hodgskin's "market libertarian" position. (Wikipedia) ______________________ PARE, WILLIAM (1805-1873), co-operator, son of John Pare, cabinet-maker and upholsterer, of Birmingham, was born there in 1805. He was apprenticed to his father, but became a reporter. He subsequently engaged in business as a tobacco and cigar retailer in New Street, Birmingham. Early in life he helped to found a mechanics' institution in that town, and joined the small group of men who were trying to obtain a reform in the parliamentary representation. He also took part in the agitation for the repeal of the test and corporation acts, and for Roman catholic emancipation. On the formation of the 'Political Union in 1830' he became a member of the council, when he advocated extension of the suffrage, shorter parliaments, and vote by ballot. On 7 Aug. 1832 he drafted and moved in the parish church three resolutions against the payment of church rates. The petition, then adopted and sent by him to Hume, was the last presented to the unreformed House of Commons. When the 'Reformers' Registration Society' was established in 1835, Pare became secretary. He was the first registrar of Birmingham under the act legalising civil marriages (6 and 7 Will. iv. c. 85). As a member of the charter committee appointed in 1837, he actively promoted the incorporation of the town, and was a member of the first town council. Meanwhile Pare had become widely known as an able disciple of Robert Owen [q. v.] Converted to his teaching by William Thompson of Cork, Pare was one of the founders in 1828 of the first Birmingham co-operative society, at the anniversary of which he presided on 28 Dec. 1829. In the following year he attracted notice by the lectures he gave in support of co-operation at Liverpool, Manchester, Bolton, Chester, and other places. From May 1830, when the first co-operative congress was held at Manchester, until 1838, he constantly attended the congresses as one of the secretaries. From 1832 he advocated the establishment of labour exchanges, and mainly through his efforts the one at Birmingham had some success. He was one of the trustees of the property bequeathed for co-operative purposes by William Thompson of Cork in 1833; and when the heirs-at-law instituted an action in the Irish court of chancery, he went to Ireland to watch over the interests of the trustees, lecturing at various co-operative centres on the way. He was vice-president of Owen's society, 'The Association of all Classes of all Nations,' of which the central board was established at Birmingham. He continued an active member of the board until its removal to London in 1840. Forced to resign his registrarship in consequence of his socialistic opinions, he left Birmingham in November 1842, when he was presented with a public testimonial. From 1842 to 1844 he was acting-governor of Owen's community at Queenwood, Hampshire. He removed to London in 1844, and as a railway statist he was frequently employed to prepare reports for presentation to parliament for some of the principal lines projected in England, on the continent, in India, Algeria, and in many other countries. From 1846 to 1865 he lived near Dublin, engaged in the management of ironworks at Clontarf, Liverpool, and Chepstow. On Owen's death in 1858 he became his literary executor. He was honorary secretary to the committee by which the co-operative congress was called in 1869, and afterwards to the central board. He presided at the Owen centenary in 1871, and gave an address on the life of Owen. He died, after a long illness, on 18 June 1873, at the house of his son, Ruby Lodge, Park Hill, Croydon, and he was buried on 23 June in Shirley Churchyard, near Croydon. By his will he left all books, papers, and pictures in his possession relating to social subjects, together with 50/., to any institute or trust founded on the model of an Owen institute suggested by him. Pare published: 1. ?'The Claims of Capital and Labour, with a Sketch of practical Measures for their Conciliation,?' London, 1854, 8vo. 2. ?'A Plan for the Suppression of the Predatory Classes,?' a paper read before the third department of the National Association for the Promotion of Social Science; reprinted from the ?'Transactions,?' 1862, London, 1862, 8vo. 3. ?'Co-operative Agriculture: a Solution of the Land Question, as exemplified in the History of the Relahine Co-operative Association, County Clare, Ireland,?' London, 1850, 8vo. He also edited William Thompson's ?'Inquiry into the Principles of the Distribution of Wealth most conducive to Human Happiness;?' 2nd ed. London, 1850, 8vo. He was a frequent contributor to co-operative newspapers. At the time of his death he was engaged in writing the life of Robert Owen from the correspondence and other materials in his possession. Pare married Ann Oakes of Market Drayton, Shropshire, by whom he had issue John Clement, Caroline, and Emma Amelia; the last-named married Thomas Dixon Galpin. Mrs. Pare died in 1886. (Wikisource)

      [Marosvásárhely, Reform Kollégyom, 1850] - 8vo (187 x 115 mm), pp 40; a fine copy in contemporary cloth-backed blue paper boards, old blindstamp of a previous owner on first leaf. £7500First edition, exceptionally rare. This is one of Bolyai's mathematical teaching texts for students at the Marosvásárhely Reform College. It consists of 55 numbered algebraic operations along with applications. Farkas Bolyai (1775-1856) is considered the father of Hungarian mathematics, putting mathematical education on a solid theoretical footing and with teaching given in Hungarian. Bolyai was a fellow student with Gauss in Göttingen, and the two remained friends and correspondents throughout their lives. Farkas famously taught his son, Janos, mathematics, and the later became one of the two most important creators of non-Euclidean geometry, the other being Lobachevskii.the only other copy I can locate is in the Hungarian National Library
