There are no known institutional copies. "There will be a Special Service on Sunday Evening, January 13, 1850, when elder A. Cordon, H.P. from the camp of Israel, will deliver a discourse on the Literal Gathering of the Twelve Tribes of Israel; and On Sunday Evening, January 20, Elder John Toone, Jun. Will Deliver A Discourse on The First Principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Public are respectfully entreated to attend And for as much as the different denominations of professing Christians are crying out delusion! delusion!! or at least, allowing other ministers from a distance to do so - The Latter-day Saints take this opportunity of publicly inviting all men of whatever class or character, to come to their Preaching Room and try their principles by the only true standard, - THE BIBLE. They lay themselves open for discussion; and particularly invite those gentlemen of the different denominations who are called Leaders of the Church - or Ministers of the Gospel. They will, with all cheerfulness, allow any one to prove to them how they err; and in case of conviction, they will gladly and publicly acknowledge it, and adopt any means to further the purposes which are recorded in the Word of God: - For verily and truly the Lord hath said that in the last days he would set up a kingdom, and it shall be done. "Let God be true, though every man a liar." They publicly acknowledge the ordinance of Baptism for the remission of sin, and laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost, and anointing with oil in the name of the Lord for the restoring of the Sick. Service each Evening will commence at Half-past six." Flake/Draper 6779b.5

The twenty four uniformly excellent plates include twelve topographical views after Barbot of Egyptian sights and cities from Philae to Cairo, ancient and modern, all peopled and bustling with life. Alexandre Bida's contribution consists of twelve beautifully-observed character studies of the people he encountered in the region: an Albanian, a Copt, dancers, ladies, a donkey driver, a groom, etc. Bida, studied under Eugene Delacroix, and travelled extensively through Egypt, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon and Palestine. "E. Barbot" is Prosper Barbot (1798-1878), a pupil of Jules Coignet and Louis Watelet, who made two journeys to Egypt in 1844 and 1846 travelling from Cairo south across the desert.

        THE SCARLET LETTER

      Boston: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, 1850. FIRST EDITION, First Issue, with advertisements dated March 1, 1850, and with the misprint on p. 21, line 20 "reduplicate" for "repudiate." n. Hardcover. The First Major American Novel,In Excellent Bayntun Morocco. 181 x 111 mm (7 1/8 x 4 3/8"). iv, 322 pp., 4 pp. (ads). FIRST EDITION, First Issue, with advertisements dated March 1, 1850, and with the misprint on p. 21, line 20 "reduplicate" for "repudiate.". FINE MODERN DARK BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO BY BAYNTUN (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with single gilt fillet border, raised bands, spine gilt in single-ruled compartments containing an antique-style letter "A," gilt titling and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Original blindstamped brown cloth covers bound in at rear. Contained in a protective red velvet bag. Front flyleaf with bookplate of Robert LeGresley. BAL 7600. Leaves a shade less than bright (as in the typical copy), occasional corner creases, isolated spots of mild foxing, otherwise A FINE COPY, the text clean and fresh, and in a pristine binding. This is a volume of firsts: the first edition, first issue of Hawthorne's first novel, his first publication for Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, and generally recognized as the first major American novel. Described by Day as "Hawthorne's masterpiece and one of the world's greatest novels," "The Scarlet Letter" probes the nature of sin, guilt, repentance, and salvation. Set in Salem in the early years of the Massachussetts Colony, the story tells of the scarlet "A" (standing for "adultery") embroidered on the dress of Hester Prynne, and the secret "A" searing the heart of her child's father, the seemingly saintly Reverend Dimmesdale. According to ANB, "Hawthorne's tightly plotted, densely symbolic, and psychologically probing story of concealed and revealed sin in seventeenth-century Boston is his most serious work of moral and cultural history. In his day as in ours, readers struggle to understand its main characters in the context of a repressive society. Arguably, Hawthorne's greatest achievement is his heroine Hester Prynne." One of the major figures in the history of literature in the United States, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-64) was among those who first inspired the idea of "American literature," a national literature that could take its place alongside its well-established European forebears. Probably more than any other writer of stature in 19th century America, Hawthorne combined vivid imagination with careful, structured craft. The press run for this title was 2,500, so the book is not difficult to find for sale, but well-preserved copies in original cloth are quite uncommon now. Consequently, an attractively bound copy like the present one (with original covers and spine bound in) is a desirable alternative. (The book may be purchased without the bag.).

        By John Lindley and Joseph Paxton.

      London, Bradbury & Evans, 1850-1853. 3 volumes. 4to (258 x 202mm). pp. iv, 194; 186; 178, with 105 (of 108) fine handcoloured lithographed plates and 314 text-figures. Contemporary half calf, backcover hinge of one volume loose. One of the most attractive works on garden flowers by two eminent British botanists. In our copy plates 79-81 are lacking. The excellent plates are by L. Constans. 'L. Constans and E.A. Prévost, both of whom were working about 1840-50, produced paintings of miraculous fine quality' (Blunt & Stearn p. 268). Sir Joseph Paxton (1803-1865) was head gardener to the Duke of Devonshire at Chatsworth, where he achieved the first blooming of the 'Victoria amazonica'. Paxton's successes at Chatworth brought him numerous commissions for the design of large scale public gardens. He is also well known for his periodical 'Paxton's Magazine', published in 16 vols from 1836-49. However the illustrations for the above work are superior to that in the 'Magazine'. /John Lindley (1799-1865) was assistant librarian of Sir Joseph Banks and became professor of Botany at the University College London and was Britain's pioneer orchidologist. He published a number of important botanical books such as the 'Sertum Orchidaceum' and the 'Digitalium Monographia'. Like Paxton he was one of the founders of the 'Gardener's Chronicle'. 'He was one of the most eminent, industrious, versatile, public-spirited and productive of Victorians - gardener - botanist, botanical artist, author of textbooks, university professor, editor and journalist' (Stearn).//A few plates with some very slight foxing. There is some more foxing to the text which is printed on inferior paper.//A second edition of the 'Flower Garden' was published in 1882-84 with inferior chromo-lithographed plates. //Great Flower Books 65; Nissen BBI, 1498; Pritzel 5369. See also Stearn, W., John Lindley 1799-1865.

        THE EMIGRANT'S GUIDE TO NEW MEXICO, CALIFORNIA, OREGON: GIVING THE DIFFERENT OVERLAND AND SEA ROUTES

      New York: John Disturnell, 1850.. viii,[3]-80pp. plus folding map, 22 x 19 1/2 inches. 16mo. Original cloth, front cover stamped in blind and gilt. Hinges neatly repaired, map skillfully reinforced along fold lines, minor foxing. Very good. In a half morocco slipcase, cloth chemise. This is the third, and best, edition of this critical guide of the routes to New Mexico, California and Oregon, published to guide travellers to the California Gold Rush. Howell described this as one of the scarcest editions of the Disturnell GUIDE, and Streeter believed his copy to have been one of only two located examples (however, Kurutz now locates six copies). The first edition appeared in 1849, with the second edition published about a month later. The first and second edition maps did not contain the descriptions of the southern routes to California; and the maps differ radically in the amount of information included. The present third edition is by far the best, notable for containing the first printing of J. Calvin Smith's map, incorporating the Gold Region additions in an inset map of California, and for showing the southern routes across Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. "Disturnell inserted into the 1850 edition three leaves (pages iii-viii) entitled 'California in 1850.' This addition features descriptions of the new and thriving cities and towns 'which have sprung into existence, as if by magic, since the discovery of the extensive placers, on the tributaries of the Sacramento River in the early part of 1848" - Kurutz. A rare and important western map and overland guide. HOWES D351, "b." WAGNER-CAMP 167a:3. WHEAT, GOLD REGION 171. WHEAT, TRANSMISSISSIPPI WEST 692. KURUTZ 196c. STREETER SALE 3158. HOWELL 50:59D.

During his vacations he learned and practiced carpentry and helped at harvest, he taught and did anything and everything to get money to pay for his schooling. After his first term, he needed no aid from home, he had reached the point were he was self-sufficient. While at Chester, he met a Miss Lucretia Rudolph, his future wife ... He studied hard, worked hard, cheerfully ready for any emergency ... His nature, always religious, was at this period profoundly stirred in that direction. He was converted under the instructions of a Campbellite preacher, was baptized and received into that denomination ... From this moment, his zeal to get the best education heightened and he began to take wider views, to look beyond the present and into the future. In 1851, after finishing his studied in Chester, he entered the principal educational institution of the Campbellites, Hiram Eclectic Institute (later Hiram College). He was not a very quick study, but he was determined and he soon had an excellent knowledge of Latin and was fairly adept in algebra, natural philosophy and botany...? The book here offered was his botany book which he kept for the rest of his life."

        Watercolour] Nubian with his Camel.

      1850 - Ca. 1850. Watercolour ca.25x35 cm (10 x 14 in). Fine matted watercolour captioned with the title. A little soiled around edge of mat, otherwise a very good watercolour.

"Northern Nubia was brought under Egyptian control while the south came under the control of the Kingdom of Sennar in the 16th century. The entire region would come under Egyptian control during the rule of Mehemet Ali in the early 19th century, and later became a joint Anglo-Egyptian condominium" (Wikipedia).

        Rare Presidential Free Frank on envelope addressed by his daughter Betty Bliss, as acting First Lady and probably unique as such, enclosing a rare ALS ?Betty T. Bliss? from her to her cousin, mentioning the death of John C. Calhoun and a speech of Daniel Webster

      "Rare envelope free franked ?Z. Taylor? as President, 5.25? x 3?. Addressed by his daughter, Mary Elizabeth ?Betty? Taylor Bliss to the wife of her cousin, ?Mrs. William Taylor? in New Orleans. The envelope is postmarked ?Free? Washington, D.C., April 1 [1850]. Mrs. Taylor?s New Orleans address is crossed out, being forwarded to ?Mansion House / Mobile / Ala.,? postmarked again New Orleans, La. April 9 indicating the date it left New Orleans for Mobile. The President?s daughter has handwritten ?Free? to the upper left of her father?s frank which was illegal: the President had the franking privilege, not members of his family. William Wallace Smith Bliss, Zachary Taylor?s Chief of Staff in Texas and Mexico (1845-1847), married Betty Taylor (1824-1909) in December 1848, a month after her father was elected President. Pres. Taylor appointed Bliss his Private Secretary. Lieutenant Colonel and Mrs. Bliss lived in the White House. The First Lady, Margaret Taylor, was in ill health and seldom appeared at public functions, so her youngest daughter, 25-year-old Betty Bliss acted as White House hostess for her mother. President Zachary Taylor was 65 when he died just three months after this letter, on July 9,1850. Betty?s mother died at 63 in 1852 and Betty?s 38-year-old husband died of yellow fever in 1853. Rare Autograph Letter Signed ?Betty T. Bliss,? 4 full pages, 7? x 8.75?, front & verso on two conjoined sheets. Washington, April 1, 1850. Penned by Mrs. Bliss at top edge of first page: ?Commit this to the flames as soon as read.? The President?s daughter first discusses family (e.g. ?He has not written Pa a line for Mother, and has [Pa] has only heard of the inundation of Plantation through the newspapers. It is really outrageous and I am surprised at Pa?s submitting to it ... Anne Payne [Mrs Madison?s niece] is to be married very shortly to a Dr Caustin of his place, a very worthy good man I am told.?) The great grandfather of Presidents Zachary Taylor and James Madison was James Taylor (1673-1729). Betty continues, ?You will no doubt hear ere this reaches you through the newspapers of Mr Calhoun?s death. He died yesterday morning and is to be buried tomorrow. His death has been daily looked for, for some weeks ... Col. Bliss enclosed Mr. [Daniel] Webster?s speech whilst he hopes Mr. T. will like...? On July 22, 1850, two weeks after the death of Pres. Taylor, his successor Millard Fillmore appointed Daniel Webster as Secretary of State. Dr. Walter A. Ostromecki, Jr., in his landmark study ?The First Ladies of the United States: An Historical Look at Each and Their Autograph Materials 1789-1989,?? Revised and Updated 1991 Edition, states, ?Like her mother, Betty Taylor Bliss Dandridge is very scarce in autograph material. During the past twenty years (1968-1988), only two of her letters have appeared on the market --- both selling in excess if $1,500. One was dated 1876 and the other 1890. Both were written at Winchester, Virginia.? The letter here offered, of course, was written as acting First Lady from The White House. We have been unable to find any other Betty Bliss letter being offered for sale in the last 26 years. "

        Map Puzzles for Children "Atlas Geographique"

      Mon. Logerot, Ca 1850 - A set of 7 maps (all published) in the original box. Titles include "Amerique du Nord"; "Afrique"; "Amerique du Sud"; "Europe"; "Asie"; "Mappemonde", a double hemisphere; and "France et ses Chemins de Fer". The map of North America is most interesting, as Texas appears as an independent state, Mexico cuts a broad swath up through California, Santa Fe and the West, and the rest of America is simply "Etats-Unis". Texas appeared as an independent state for a short period of time, 1838-1842. The date 1850 is estimated from the US and Mexican boundary. The Australian map appears to be based on a variety of geographical information. West Australia appears pre-1829, as the Swan River Colony (Perth) is not marked, but features included are - At. de la Recherche, Albany, C. Leeuwin, H. Freycinet, C.N. Ouest. Nle. Galles du Sud stretches up the east coast, encompassing Queensland, with no specific inland detail for Queensland, but other features marked are G. de Carpentarie, C. Melville, C. Gloucester and the word "Melville" written in the ocean, implying Melville Island? The only inland features marked in New South Wales are Sydney, Botany Bay and C. Sandy on the coast. South Australia is not named, but two features are: G. Spencer and I. Kangaroi. "D. de Bass" and "Diemene" are marked, but there is no land mass for Tasmania. Maps printed area 26.5 x 19cms, on maps measuring 28 x 21 cms. Steel engraved maps, period hand color, mounted on 1/4" card, backed with blue paper, as issued. In the original papered box with "Atlas" on the top. Box bit bumped and dusty, o/w very good condition. Price originally 7 F. Engraver or printer Fremin, A.R.; Gaultier, J.; Geisendorfer, J.; Jerome, J.; Monrocq, Ch. Dyonnet. See Rumsey Image No: 4782001.

        Cyrtonyx Ocellatus: Gould

      John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society.His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand color them. Gould became the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain, creating over three thousand plates of birds in over forty volumes.John Gould commenced his "A Monograph of the Odontophorinae, or Partridges of America" in 1844 and published it in London in 1850 which contains 32 expertly hand-colored lithographic plates. This folio-sized, hand-colored lithograph, Cyrtonyx Ocellatus: Gould, from “Partridges of America” measures 14.25” x 21.25” and is in very good condition with some staining and foxing throughout. Commonly called Ocellated Partridges or Quails, these birds are expertly hand-colored in rich shades of brown. Their plumage is speckled with patterns in tan, black and orange, and their wings are striped. The positioning allows for the intricate black and white masks of their face to be appreciated, as they rest below a well detailed and colorful cactus.

Yet it is the oversized heads and ultra-refined Ancien Regime dress of the children engaged in adult activities that charms and beguiles.Scarce, with only copy located on OCLC FirstServe at Princeton.

        A collection of 12 finely executed Chinese original drawings on rice paper around 1850.

      All drawings are framed and glazed. The drawings (200 x 320mm) are suberbly executed and exceptionally colourful and show the various stages of picking, processing, packing and trading of tea as well as the Chinese tea ceremony. These drawings are executed in watercolours and gouache on rice paper. Due to the fragility of the paper one drawing has a tear in the lower margin. These Chinese export watercolours were made for the western market and produced in the port cities of China of which Canton was the most important one. These drawings were exported to Britain, America and other countries and made 'a pervasive part of the visual world of the Victorians and their contemporaries and had considerable influence on the western image of China' (C. Clunes, Chinese Export Watercolours). A very well preserved and unique collection.

        COLT'S PATENT REPEATING PISTOLS, ARMY, NAVY, AND POCKET SIZES. MANUFACTURED AT HARTFORD, CONN. [caption title]

      [Hartford? 1850].. Broadside, 10 1/2 x 8 inches. Old fold lines. Manuscript in French on verso, bleeding through to front; a few spots of ink burn, not affecting text. Else very good. An advertisement illustrating Colt's .44 Caliber Second Model Dragoon Revolver (manufactured 1850-51), complete with the cylinder engraving of a battle between American Indians and soldiers. A key to the parts of the revolver, just below the image, identifies the barrel, cylinder, hammer, trigger, ramrod, and lever. The broadside also includes "Directions for Loading Colt's Pistols." The manuscript on the verso, written in French and dated 1850, is unsigned and concerns municipal taxes and business matters. In 1847, Samuel Colt (1814-62) borrowed money from his banker cousin, Elisha Colt, and other Hartford businessmen to lease a factory on Pearl Street in Hartford, where he adapted the system of interchangeable parts to the mass production of guns. Colt was America's first major arms exporter and manufacturer, as well as the arms industry's first lobbyist. His manufacturing company was a giant of 19th-century U.S. industry, and his revolver was the most significant advance in arms technology in hundreds of years, permanently transforming side arms. From his factory in Hartford, Colt produced hundreds of thousands of revolvers in constantly evolving models. The one shown here is a second-generation gun that followed the unwieldy Colt Walker revolver; like its predecessor, this weapon was intended for dragoons.
