        Autograph Letter, signed ("H. Clay"), to Mr. and Mrs. [Richard] Bayard on the death of their son Charles

      Washington, D.C, 27 march 1850 - Kentucky Senator Henry Clay (1777-1852) writes to former Delaware Senator and state Supreme Court Chief Justice Richard H. Bayard (1796-1868) and his wife Mary on the tragic death of their son Charles in the Bay of Naples. Charles, only 21 years old at his death, was struck and killed by debris from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius on February 9, 1850, while serving as a Midshipman in the US Navy. He was buried in the English Cemetary at Naples. Clay writes from a position of weary acquaintance of the tragedy of losing a child, having outlived seven of his eleven children. The letter reads, in part: "I received today a letter from Mr. Bayard and one also from Mrs. Jackson communicating the melancholy event which has happened in Naples - I can fully appreciate your feelings and your distress, alas!" 4to. 2 pp. pen and ink on one sheet.

Reiterportrait, "Napoleon a la Bataille d' Austerlitz, le 2 Decembre 1805",.

      . Stahlstich v. Rouargue b. Lange in Darmstadt, um 1850, 42,5 x 48. Napoleon erwies sich als ein militärisches Talent. Vor allem die Feldzüge in Italien und in Ägypten machten ihn populär und zu einem politischen Hoffnungsträger. Dies ermöglichte ihm, durch den Staatsstreich vom 18. Brumaire die Macht in Frankreich zu übernehmen, die ihn letztendlich zum Kaiser der Franzosen werden ließ. Durch verschiedene Reformen, z. B. dem Code Civil, hat Napoleon die staatlichen Strukturen Frankreichs bis in die Gegenwart hinein geprägt. Außenpolitisch errang er zeitweise die Herrschaft über weite Teile Kontinentaleuropas. Der katastrophale Ausgang des Feldzugs gegen Russland führte zum Sturz Napoleons. Nach einer kurzen Phase der Verbannung auf Elba kehrte er für hundert Tage an die Macht zurück. In der Schlacht bei Waterloo wurde er endgültig besiegt und zuletzt bis zu seinem Lebensende auf die Insel St. Helena verbannt. Das Mittelbild mit Napoleon zu Pferde zwischen seinen Soldaten ( 22,5 x 25 ), umgeben von 16 Darstellungen weiterer Schlachten zwischen 1796 und 1812, u.a.

Extra-illustrated with 95 additional pen, ink and wash drawings by Richard Bate.The illustrations are skillfully executed and evocative. Each illustration initialed "R. B.", and dated between 1854 and 1856. Dates usually indicate the month, sometimes just the year. The illustrations have presumably all been copied from other sources. Illustration number 12 "A General View of the Great Temple at Edfou" gives the source from which the ink sketch has been rendered as the "Pictorial Bible". Each illustration of an ancient ruin matches a reference to that ruin in the lines of the poem, the line being annotated with the number of the corresponding illustration. Handwritten list of the titles of the illustrations bound in with the preliminary leaves. Full green morocco binding with gilt panels to both boards, gilt decoration to spine. Gilt dentelles. Marbled endpapers. All page edges gilt. Page dimensions: 182 x 117mm (7 1/8" x 4 5/8"). Inscribed "for Sophy / your affte. Father / Richard Bate / Love to Nelly and a kiss for me." Richard Bate (1775-1856) was born in London. In 1807 he travelled to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In Brazil he established a trading company in nautical, optical and surgical instruments. Watercolour paintings by Bate of the city of Rio de Janeiro are held by Cornell University. His daughter Sophia, to whom this volume was gifted by her father, was born in Brazil in 1817, and died in London in 1889. Richard Bate returned to England in 1854. Sophia married Dr Septimus Wray (1792-1869) and they had one child, Sophia Eleanor Wray (1848-1940). Sophia Eleanor Wray married Dr John Thomas Mercer in 1870. The front fly leaf has the signature of "Sophia Eleanor Mercer". They had a daughter Eleanor Maria V. Mercer (1875-), who married Laurence Anderson (born Tokyo, 1875). Eleanor Maria V. Mercer and Laurence Anderson had a son John Laurence Anderson, born in Bangkok in 1900. John Laurence Anderson, grand-son, is also mentioned in a family inscription on the front endpaper by Nellie Mercer nee Wray (Sophia Eleanor Mercer).

        Eleven chromolithographs of fruit and flowers from "Fruits from the Garden and Field."

      London.. [ 1850].. Each plate 10 x 7 inches. Plates have overall light foxing; the peach has discoloration at the top left of the sheet. Loosely laid into the original elaborately embossed leather binding which has been mended with a soft brown leather spine. Sold as a group of plates. This is a group of 11 of the 12 plates that were published in Fruits from the Garden and Field. As one would expect with a work associated with Owen Jones, the chromolithography is of an extremely high quality, including the use of gold lettering. These are naturalistic treatments of plants, as opposed to the decorative design of much of Jones work, but pattern is an important part of the image. Each plant is associated with a quality or sentiment, which is elegantly but lightly lettered in gold (and sometimes a little hard to read). The fruits and flowers are: apple (utility); pomegranate (hard to make out - amb..?); wheat and hops (strength & wealth); blackberries and other red berries (charity); strawberries (kisses); grapes (hospitality); hazelnuts? and grain (retrospection); cherries (smiles); mulberries? (tears); peach (sensibility?); apricots (independence). .

        White Jacket

      Harper New York 1850 - 1st/2nd Printing, Very Good+/ No Jacket, Decorative Cloth. Beautiful copy of the First edition and second state of White Jacket. All points are correct for the second state including the "T" signature on page 433 and the correct "Q" signature on page 361. This copy has been expertly rebacked and the spine color matches the binding color beautifully. There is gold stamping on the spine and the boards are blindstamped in a very intricate and fine design with very litle evidence of rubbing. This is BAL 13662. The textblock is quite clean with sporadic foxing and of course, there is some toning from age. I have had my bookbinder create a custom slipcase to protect this Antiquarian treasure. It is in Brown bookcloth and the opening is trimmed in a deep chocolate leather. The volume makes a fine presentation. The binding is very tight but for a slight separation between the pastedown and the Ffep. It could easily be repaired with a touch of glue. It was the last book he wrote prior to his masterpiece Moby Dick and the novel is approachable and brilliant. We are pleased to send pictures on request. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
