(Cambridge, MA, c. 1850). This greeting card has an overall detailed, embossed lace design on white paper, depicting what appears to be a wedding of cherubim in a vignette at the top. In the center is a gold-colored ring, a small gilt heart, and the beehive. The beehive is comprised of a circle of gold, red, blue, violet, and white patterned paper, with a blue bow in the center. When the beehive is gently lifted by pulling up on the bow, underneath are revealed the words "Love" and "Hope." The beehive effect (also called "flower-cage" or "cobweb") is achieved by cutting out threads of paper, and then attaching a small string to the center of the picture which, when pulled, reveals an illustration or words underneath. This design form originated in Germany and, as Frank Staff notes in The Valentine and its Origins, "is keenly sought after by collectors today." The valentine is blank on the inside. A few light spots and slight crease to the front of the card, else a very good example of an American printed "beehive" with the original envelope, which is also embossed with a lace pattern.

1850.] 1850 - Two frontispieces, and 30 plates engraved by Geoffroy after Gavarni, all in two states, on chine monté, and on elegantly coloured and printed papier vélin with borders cut to lace patterns.2 vols. 8vo. Contemporary gilt panelled vellum, by Carayon, with bound in original pictorial wrappers printed in pink . The very rare special issue in which the steel engravings are printed and delicately coloured on paper with borders cut to various lace patterns, or ?decoupées en dentelles? The work is generally only considered complete if both volumes are present as in this example. Carteret remarks: ?La réunion des deux ouvrages avec les gravures à marges de dentelles est assez rare à rencontrer? Gordon Ray only had a copy of the ordinary issue, but remarked that the special edition was far more appealing, and considered that by presenting the plates in this way ?Gavarni's designs become fashion plates of the first order?.Bookplate of Albert Pascal. A few spots but generally an excellent copy of this important issue.Carteret III, pp. 460-1. Ray 209 & 209A.

The Academy of Natural Sciences.
Philadelphia: The Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences, 1850. Philadelphia:: The Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences,, 1850.. first edition. Fine with original hand-coloring. A Fine original hand-colored lithograph. Folio (9.25 x 13 inches, 235 x 330 mm). The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia was established by the learned naturalists of high Philadelphian society in early 19th century America to document the recent natural discoveries of a new nation. The founding members, and contributors, were the luminaries of early American natural history and sciences; Titian Peale, Thomas Say and George Ord, to name a few. The Journal of the Academy of Natural Sciences was their clarion, and was illustrated with wonderful folio-sized hand-colored lithographs by J.T. Bowen and Co. in Philadelphia, America's premier lithographers of the mid-19th century, and the very same company to produce John James Audubon's landmark lithographs for the first seven Royal Octavo editions of the Birds of America (c. 1840-65) and both the Imperial Folio and Royal Octavo editions of the Quadrupeds of North America. (c.1840-54). In essence, the same artists and printers who produced Audubon masterful lithographs created this work. We classify these fabulous plates as one of the best unsung values in the art of 19th century ornithology.

These were issued separately between 1838 and 1845. This collected edition was issued after Morton's death. All these works are remarkable, because they are illustrated by his brother Andrew Morton a leading London portrait painter. Arguably they mark the revival of an artistic representation of anatomical details. .

Lasch, C.[arl Johann]
ca. 1850. 47 x 53 cm, 29 x 36 cm, Minimal stockfleckig. Carl Johann Lasch (1822-1888) begann seine künstlerischen Studien an der Kunstakademie Dresden und wurde später ein Schüler von Eduard Bendemann. Mit dessen Empfehlung kam Lasch 1844 an die Kunstakademie München, wo er Schüler von Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld und auch von Wilhelm Kaulbach wurde. Unter deren Einfluss schuf Lasch mehrere Historienbilder, u.a. Enzio im Gefängnis, Eberhard der Rauschebart und Der Sängerkrieg auf der Wartburg. Nach einer Studienreise durch Italien ging er 1847 für fast zehn Jahre nach Moskau, um eine Anzahl von Aufträgen im Porträtfach auszuführen. Zwischen 1857 und 1859 lebte und wirkte Lasch in Paris, wo er zwei Jahre blieb. Hier malte er Tannhäuser und Venus, Tintoretto, seine Tochter u.v.a. Daneben studierte eifrig in den Galerien die Werke alter und neuer Meister. Lasch war Mitglied der Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden, Akademie der Bildenden Künste Wien und der Petersburger Kunstakademie. Anfang 1859 ging er für ein Jahr nach Moskau und ließ sich nach seiner Rückkehr 1860 in Düsseldorf als erfolgreicher freischaffender Künstler nieder. Sein erstes dort vollendetes Bild war Eginhard und Emma, aber in Folge widmete sich Lasch dann verstärkt der Genremalerei. 500

Dickens, Charles
1850. In: The Tioga Banner. Wellsboro Penn., January 8, 1850. One broadsheet (35" x 22") folded to make four pages. On November 13, 1849, Charles Dickens (with his friend, the illustrator John Leech) witnessed in Horsemonger's Lane, London, the public hanging of George Manning and his wife Maria (for the murder of her former lover). Dickens was disgusted not by the executions themselves, but by the fact that they were public -- it is estimated that the hangings were witnessed by about 30,000. Later that very day Dickens wrote a letter to the editor of The Times, and it appeared the next day...~In it he expressed his shock at the behavior of the crowd at the hangings, going on to ask that public executions be abolished.~... When I came upon the scene at midnight, the shrillness of the cries and howls... made my blood run cold.

Dickens, Charles
1850 - In: The Tioga Banner. Wellsboro Penn., January 8, 1850. One broadsheet (35" x 22") folded to make four pages. On November 13, 1849, Charles Dickens (with his friend, the illustrator John Leech) witnessed in Horsemonger's Lane, London, the public hanging of George Manning and his wife Maria (for the murder of her former lover). Dickens was disgusted not by the executions themselves, but by the fact that they were public -- it is estimated that the hangings were witnessed by about 30,000. Later that very day Dickens wrote a letter to the editor of The Times, and it appeared the next day.~In it he expressed his shock at the behavior of the crowd at the hangings, going on to ask that public executions be abolished.~. When I came upon the scene at midnight, the shrillness of the cries and howls. made my blood run cold.

Little Rock, AR [engraved by Edwin O. Reed, Cincinnati]: 1850. Engraved folding pocket map, full period hand colouring, printed on two sheets joined, 33 x 35 1/2 inches. Table of references along the right side, printed attestation by the Surveyor of Public Lands in Arkansas at the lower left. Folds into publisher's green cloth portfolio, covers decoratively stamped in blind, upper cover titled in gilt, silk ties, marbled pastedown. The very rare first issue of the finest of all 19th- century maps of Arkansas, here in superb original condition. This large and colourful map of Arkansas is copyrighted 1849 and is dated in the cartouche 1850. Rumsey, whose famed collection contains only an 1859 Colton re-issue of Langtree's map, writes: "It is the largest scale pre Civil War state map of Arkansas that we have seen, and it is highly detailed in its showing of lands owned by the U.S., the state, private grants, Seminary lands, and Salt Spring lands. It is not listed in any of the standard references." The map depicts the state divided into 51 counties, with each plotted for settlement; the impressive detail includes towns, roads, post offices, prairies, swamps, lead mines, sulphur springs and more. OCLC records only a handful of copies of the aforementioned 1859 Colton re-issue and no other copies published prior to the Civil War (a later edition being published in 1866). The only other extant copy of this map appears to be in the National Archives (Special List 29, item 71, RG 77: MD 50). Rumsey 4804 (1859 Colton re-issue). Not in Phillips.

Cloth. Very Good. A scarce, absurdistly comical ABC in a mid-Victorian style evocative of Edward Lear, Richard Doyle and John Tenniel. N.d., circa 1850s. Oblong, 18 by 23 cm. Only one copy located on OCLC, at Princeton University (the Cotsen Collection). With 27 line drawn engravings, one for each letter plus a title page, mounted onto heavy card, mostly on the rectos, with a few on the versos as well. The drawings could pass as ink manuscript, but they were in fact printed in what would seem an early form of mimeographic technology. Characterizing virtually all the figures, besides the stock-in-trade of the caricaturist's art of exaggerated features, is their enormous heads. Angels, devils, fairies, wizards, crones, lovely Medieval maidens and many others in ancient and fairy tale dress fill these pages. None of the illustrations will fail to charm, and while the captions are part of the fun, they are not a sine qua non for the enjoyment of the ludicrous imagery. The original cloth has soiling and light wear. The hinges have been restored. Light soiling scattered on the mounted images. Marks left by paste are visible on the backs of leaves.

[Colombia]: [Fane, Francis Augustus, Col.]:
[New Grenada (i.e. Colombia). January/February 1850].. Pen-and-ink and watercolor on an octagonal sheet of wove paper. Sheet size: 12 ¾ x 18 1/2 inches. Corners clipped, else very good. Provenance: Sotheby's, May 29, 1958, lot 377. Wonderful mid-19th-century watercolor of a night scene in the jungle of New Grenada. Fane, from a prosperous Lincolnshire family, joined the Army and served in the West Indies and in Canada in the late 1840s. In January 1850 he left Antigua for a sojourn in New Grenada, arriving on January 19 of that year. Fane's diary, located in the National Archives, United Kingdom, records the circumstances surrounding this scene: on January 24 he "Started an expedition to the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta with two Indian guides," and the following day "hired donkeys and engaged an interpreter." The present watercolor shows Fane at rest in a hammock, whilst the interpreter and one of the Indians cut wood, and the other Indian tends the fire. Fane reached the "Perpetual Snow" on February 13, arrived back in Santa Martha on February 22 and arrived at Cartagena on February 29. He returned to Antigua via Jamaica the second week in March of that year. In 1857, Fane would raise a regiment to fight in the Indian Mutiny and would become a noted diarist and watercolorist. For the above quoted diary: National Archives, U.K., RECORDS OF THE FANE FAMILY, 1 Fane 6/8/1/3.
