        Draft of Autograph Letter Signed to 1849 California Constitution..

      , 1850. 1850. Letter Regarding a California Trial for the 1849 Murder of an African-American Dickinson, [D]aniel S. [1800-1866)]. [Sherwood, Winfield S. (1817-1865)]. [Draft of Autograph Letter, Signed, to Winfield Scott Sherwood, Washington, DC, U.S. Senate Chamber, 1850]. Single 10-3/4" x 8" leaf, docketed on verso, some toning, vertical and horizontal fold lines, a few later annotations in tiny hand. Letter accompanied by biographical sketch clipped from a contemporary source and a lithograph portrait plate removed from an unidentified book. $500. * A retained draft of a letter by Daniel S. Dickinson, a U.S. Senator from New York, concerning the trial of Reuben Withers Jr. for the murder in California of an African-American named "Bones." Addressed to former New York politician Winfield S. Sherwood, a signer of the California Constitution of 1849, candidate for governor, and later district judge, the letter introduces Reuben Withers's brother, New Orleans banker Dunham Withers, and asks Sherwood to make sure Reuben receives a fair trial. Reuben Withers Sr. was president of the Bank of New York; his son Dunham was a representative to the southern states for the New York banking firm of Howland & Aspinwall. David Dunham Withers of New Orleans was a noted thoroughbred horseman and president of the racing organization that became the Jockey Club. Senator Daniel S. Dickinson previously served as lieutenant governor of New York and later as its 27th attorney general. Dickinson was a potential candidate in 1864 for vice president to Abraham Lincoln.

        Bibl Sanctaidd (Holy Bible)

      Y London Printing and Publishing Company, Limited 1850 - Extremely rare and beautiful Welsh Bible from around 1850 with full leather binding and brass edging strips and clasps (all present). This translation has been completed under the direction of Peter Williams (1723-1796); the nearest comparison I have been able to find is an 1846 Williams translation published by H. Fisher & Son, a copy of which is in the National Library of Wales. There is no publication date for this edition but I estimate around 1850. Fully bound in black leather with extensive gilt decoration and blind stamping (a couple of tiny marks but not such as to detract); five raised bands to spine with gilt panels between; brass edging strips to top, bottom & outer edge of both boards; two decorated brass hinges, both working. Brass edging to rear board is slightly bent next to clasp hinges & bottom outer corner but seems still to be firmly attached (clasps properly aligned). Text block gilded to all three visible edges. Binding in very good condition indeed; endpapers reinforced with black cloth gutter strips, very slightly cracked at one or two points (may be original, as the leather shows little sign of wear externally). Plain brown endpapers; dedication on front flyleaf: 'To Kate With best wishes from Uncle Dan, Sheffield' (many south Welsh mining families migrated to Yorkshire in the Victorian era, as Welsh mines closed and new ones were opening or being expanded in South Yorkshire). Title page on heavy cartridge paper with blue & red lettering (light foxing only); preface & introduction by Peter Williams, followed by reference tables & contents listings; Bible text pp.1036, followed by psalms etc. to rear. Text printed in two columns within double line edging, with notes and referencing in panels to page bottom. Generously provisioned with full page colour engravings - these may also have been used in other editions of the Holy Bible, as the captions are in English. Unused family portrait gallery & family register within decorative panels etc. immediately prior to the New Testament. Condition inside is excellent: light spotting to one endpapers & small signs of handling; one or two illustrations have light foxing due to their being printed on slightly more absorbent paper; written text generally very lean indeed; some tiny corner folds to top outer page edges which have been flattened out well (a tiny point just for the sake of completion). A beautiful and scarce item, possibly museum quality. Extremely large & heavy item, so the normal 8vo flat rate will not apply (courier may be more reliable/safer and less expensive depending upon destination); for overseas shipping please contact us first.

      Saint Paul: Printed by James M. Goodhue and Nathaniel M'Lean, 1850. xxxvii,107,[1],[2],[1],[106]-213pp. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards. Small library stamps to first page of Constitution and each titlepage, faint marginal dampstain to last third of text. Overall, a very good copy of a rare work. This is the record of the first session of the Territory of Minnesota legislature, and among the earliest of Minnesota imprints. Printing began in Minnesota in the summer of 1849, and this volume, covering the acts of the first legislature, was issued early in 1850. The printers Goodhue and M'Lean were not in partnership, but each printed a part of the work, hence the idiosyncrasies of layout and pagination. The preliminaries are composed of the Constitution and AN ORDINANCE FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF THE TERRITORY OF THE UNITED STATES NORTHWEST OF THE RIVER OHIO. A rare title, with only ten copies in OCLC. AII (MINNESOTA) 17.

        Blick auf das Schloß und die Stadt von der Bastion des ehemaligen Schloßgartens aus.),

      um 1850. - Mit Grau- und Brauntönen aquarellierte anonyme Tuschezeichnung um 1850. 28 x 40,5 cm. - Bis auf den Rand beschnitten und auf altes Papier kaschiert, sowie mit einem lavierten Tuscherand versehen. Sauber und glatt. - Der Maler zeigt von seinem Standort die leicht erhöhte Ostseite der Schloßruine und blickt ins Neckartal auf Heidelberg und in die Rheinebene. Die Kirchen Heidelbergs ragen deutlich aus den Häusern hervor. Im zarten Grau ist ein hoher Himmel gekennzeichnet. Der Maler kombiniert das Hinaufsehen zum Schloß mit einem Tiefblick auf die Stadt. Durch die Wahl des Standortes hebt sich die stark umwaldete Ruine über den Horizont, seine leeren Fenster treten deutlich zu Tage im Kontrast zu den verschatteten dunklen Gemäuern. Ebenso kontrastreich liegen die im zarten Strich erfassten Häuser im Licht und verlieren sich im Westen im Dunst des Flußtales. Der romantische Zug des Malers manifestiert sich in den deutlich sichtbaren Überwucherungen der Schloßgemäuer. Qualitätvolle Malerei und mit Sicherheit Pendant zu Art. 11384.

        Histoire naturelle, botanique.

      - [France, unpublished, ca. 1850]. Folio (39.8 x 28.8 cm). Title page with polychrome title and vignette, heightened with gold; 15 plates with watercolour images of fungi (1) and flowering plants with explanatory text leaves in fine calligraphy. Original full embossed and pebbled black calf; gilt-stippled board edges and fine gilt inner dentelles. Iridescent endpapers. Spine with five raised bands and gilt title; front board with gilt initials "B. F." (= Berthe Fauché); rear board with gilt vignette "Maison des Oiseaux". All edges gilt.l A fine album of large watercolour illustrations of flowering plants (and one with fungi), showing examples of the 15 classes of plants, covering 62 "principal" families. All are very accurately drawn and coloured. This likely follows the system designed by the French botanist Antoine Laurent de Jussieu (1748 -1836) which replaced the overly simple and arbitrary system of Linnaeus, and contained 76 families in all. The rear board vignette shows a gilt-embossed burgundy morocco bookplate of Arpad Plesch on the front pastedown. Plesch (1889-1974) was one of the foremost collectors of botanical works. Slight rubbing to boards, a few tissue guards creased, otherwise very good, clean. A beautiful work. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        For San Francisco Direct, The Elegant A 1 New York Built Clipper Ship Mandarin...

      Black ink on matte blue stock, 7 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches, with a woodcut image of a ship marked "Felter SC" The "Mandarin" was a 776 ton clipper ship launched in New York in 1850. "American Clipper Ships" refers to her as an "extreme clipper ship, the second clipper to be built for the California trade." Stoddard, who is named on this card, was commander for her first three years, so the card dates sometime between 1850 and 1853. The text on the card refers to her as, "entirely new... it is believed she will make as quick a passage as any vessel in the trade." So it is likely this card is as early as 1850. If so, it is a very early card, as its rather primitive form suggests. The "Mandarin" was holder of the all-time sailing record between New York and Melbourne of 70 days in 1855. She made three California and two Australia voyages and was wrecked on a reef in the China Sea in 1864. This is an extraordinary card, and rare. Very good condition except for some light staining near the bottom edge.

        Memoranda of the Bends, Places, Landings &c on Mississippi River Between St. Louis & New Orleans. W. W. Haydon.

      Soft cover. Very Good. Undated circa mid 1850's -1860, 16mo, 67 pages, plus blanks, text written in ink in a legible hand in a contemporary pocket diary, which is bound in a full leather wallet style binding, very good clean condition. Accompanied by a related partially printed and manuscript document which is dated 1861. A personal directory compiled by Mr. Haydon, a steamboat pilot, of all the bends, landings, plantations, settlements, and other geographical features along the Mississippi River from St. Louis to Vicksburg, Mississippi. Haydon apparently never completed his list for points below Vicksburg. This volume is of interest because Samuel Clemens was a steamboat pilot on the Mississippi at the same time as Haydon and the two may have known each other. William Haydon had been a pilot on the Mississippi River as early as 1853. The collection includes an 1861 document, partially completed in Haydon's hand, it is an attestation (unsigned) that Haydon, a steamboat pilot is entitled to a renewal of his license for a year. The fact that this United States federal form is incomplete can be explained by the fact that Haydon, like his colleague Samuel Clemens, the future Mark Twain, joined the Confederacy. On August 26, 1861 Haydon enlisted a a Sergeant in Co. C. (Capt. Thompson Alford's Co.) of the 3rd Regiment, 2nd Division (Genl. W. E. Green) of the Missouri State Cavalry (CSA). He was discharged in December 1861 apparently for the purposes of joining the Confederate forces as a river pilot. The volume, essentially a directory, lists by name the key spots that a steamboat pilot would use to gauge his location on the river. Haydon notes many family names, a Railroad Depot, homes, plantations, landings, the residences of various widows, rivers and other topographic features. At the top of most of the pages Haydon gives two points, and which side of the Mississippi they were on followed by all the notable reference points between those two locations. For example page headings read: "From Columbus to Head of Is(le) No. 8 Ky side; Foot of New Madrid Mo side; from Watson's point to Head of Ky & Tenn side; From Barfields Pt. to Osceola Ark Side; From Memphis to Foot of Cow Isl, Tenn side; from Hoseshoe Isl to Island 65 Miss side; From Laconia to Montgomery's Pt. Ark side. The last page is "F[rom] Mouth of Yazoo River to Vicksburg Miss." Samuel Clemens knew, by heart, these same landmarks. In his Life on the Mississippi, he wrote that a riverboat pilot "was the grandest position of all" at a great salary. As Twain described it, the pilot's prestige exceeded that of the captain. The pilot had to acquaint himself with "every old snag and one-limbed cottonwood and every obscure wood pile that ornaments the banks of the river for twelve hundred miles. and . actually know where these things are in the dark." When Clemens was apilot in training from 1857-1859 between St. Louis and New Orleans, he studied the Mississippi, learning its landmarks, and how to navigate its currents effectively, just as William Haydon did. Clemens obtained his pilot's license in 1859, and like Haydeon was a pilot on the Mississippi until the Civil War began and also joined a Missouri State unit in opposition to the Union. Clemens, however, only served for two weeks before quitting the military and leaving for Nevada Territory to engage in newspaper work. It is quite likely that Haydon and Twain either knew, or knew of, each other. Orion Clemens, Samuel Clemens' brother, and Secretary of State of Nevada Territory, is known to have written a letter to Mrs. William Haydon in 1863.

        Sketch of Mairwara; giving a brief account of the origin and habits of the Mairs; their subjugation by a British force; their civilisation, and conversion into an industrious peasantry; with descriptions of various works of irrigation in Mairwara and Ajmeer, constructed to facilitate the operations of agriculture, and guard the districts against drought and famine.

      London: Smith, Elder, and Co., 1850 - Quarto. Original green cloth neatly rebacked with green morocco, ornamental blind stamping on sides, gilt lettered on the front cover, yellow coated endpapers. Contemporary ownership on front pastedown (dated 1851). Covers patchily faded, some wear to corners, light marginal dampstaining to plates (more noticeable on plate 13), nevertheless a clean, tall copy. 9 tinted lithograph plates (of which 8 are views), 19 detailed maps and plans of irrigation systems, large folding coloured map of the region printed on linen, 3 wood engravings in the text. First edition of this important record of the extensive irrigation system established in the Ajmer-Merwara region of south western Rajasthan; scarce, "according to the English Catalogue, the work was privately printed, and Smith, Elder may therefore only have published it on Dixon's behalf" (Abbey). Dixon (d. 1857) was a lieutenant-colonel in the Bengal Artillery and superintendent of Ajmer-Merwara (part of North-Western Provinces) and oversaw the creation of the irrigation system outlined in this book. Marwar lies partly in the Thar Desert. As mentioned on the title page, the British had intervened in 1839 to quell an insurrection. The attractive tinted lithograph views are largely the work of William Gauci, after Lieutenants Burgess and Herbert; Gauci, of Maltese extraction, came from a family of distinguished lithographers working in London. The map is by another Bengal Artillery officer, Lieutenant D. C. Vanrenen. A fascinating and remarkably detailed account of British public works in India. Abbey, Travel, 475.
