        Poems

      52 - London - Edward Moxon, 1851. 52 - London - Edward Moxon, 1851 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Two uniformly-bound collections of the poetry of Samuel Rogers. Containing an anthology of poetry (Poems by Samuel Rogers, 1851) and his long poem Italy (1852). Samuel Rogers (1763 1855) was an English poet, during his lifetime one of the most celebrated, although his fame has long since been eclipsed by his Romantic colleagues and friends Wordsworth, Coleridge and Byron. In 1814 Rogers travelled through Switzerland to Italy, keeping a full diary of events and impressions, Out of the earlier of these tours arose his last and longest work, Italy. The first part was published anonymously in 1822; the second, with his name attached, in 1828. It was at first a failure, but Rogers was determined to make it a success. He enlarged and revised the poem, and commissioned illustrations from J. M. W. Turner, Thomas Stothard and Samuel Prout. These were engraved on steel in the sumptuous edition of 1830. The book then proved a great success, and Rogers followed it up with an equally sumptuous edition of his Poems (1834)Each with frontispiece engraved portraits and engraved illustrations throughout the text. Binder's stamps of J. Wright to front pastedowns. Condition: In decorative green morocco binding with gilt detailing. Externally smart, with a little rubbing. Internally, firmly bound. Ink signatures to recto of front free-endpaper. Pages have some light foxing throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Spanische Landschaft, 1851

      1851. Bleistift auf Papier, rückseitig von fremder Hand bezeichnet: "Spanienreise Mai 1851", 7,5 x 26,4 cm. Im Frühjahr 1851 reiste der Dresdner Landschaftsmaler Gustav Friedrich Papperitz nach Spanien. Bei Johann Christian Clausen Dahl und Carl Rottmann ausgebildet, hatte er bereits 1846 Italien zusammen mit Johann Wilhelm Schirmer, Ernst Willer und Friedrich Steinhäuser bereist. Spanien sollte für Papperitz allerdings eine besondere Anziehungskraft entwickeln. Hier konnte er abseits jener Pfade wandeln, die in Italien bereits von so vielen Künstlern beschritten wurden. Hier gab es Neues zu entdecken und der Hauch der arabischen Exotik bot dem suchenden Maler immer wieder neue Anreize. So verwundert es nicht, dass Papperitz gerade mit einem Motiv aus Spanien, der Ansicht des Tals von Elche, das er 1857 malte, besondere Aufmerksamkeit erregte. Unsere Zeichnung im ungewöhnlichen Querformat, das hierin an die Italienstudien Carl Blechens erinnert, zeigt eine Hügelkette in Spanien, die Papperitz während seiner Rundreise gesehen hat. Die Konzentration liegt ganz auf dem Wechselspiel der verschiedenen Erhebungen. Die kleine, palmenumstandene Burg im Vordergrund wird nur als summarisches Kürzel wiedergegeben. Durch verschiedene Schraffuren, die er nachträglich der Konturlinie der Bergkette anpasst, erzeugt er Plastizität, ohne dabei die Dominanz der Linie zu durchbrechen.

As a war correspondent with Zachary Taylor and Winfield Scott, he captured a cavalry flag, was wounded in the knee, and earned great praise for devising methods for swift transmission of his stories to his paper. He fitted a steamer as a press ship and took the news to New Orleans, where the Picayune rushed it to press. It was then dispatched on horseback to other newspapers in the country. Nebel (1805-1855) was a German-born engineer, architect and draughtsman, who lived in Mexico from 1829 to 1834.

Lithograph with original hand color; with original wooden rollers; re-mounted on new linen & fully stabilized; several secured splits, some losses, restoration to non-essential border areas; good. Richly illustrated map of Meriden, dubbed the "Silver City" for the numerous silver manufacturers once operating there. Beginning around the period of this map, this mid-sized central Connecticut city was an industrial dynamo through the mid-20th century. Two of the vignettes depict early industrial operations, while several others are noted on the plan. Interestingly, several tin shops are indicated on the map; these may have been precursors to the city's silver industry. Several churches are also illustrated, including the still standing Congregational Church. This work actually consists of two plans-one of the entire town and another of its central village. The latter provides the names and locations of local residents. Several manuscript notations in an early hand supplement the printed information on the map.Thomson 80.

        Goa, and the Blue Mountains;

      London: Richard Bentley, 1851. London: Richard Bentley,, 1851. Or, Six Months of Sick Leave. Octavo. Original red linen-grained cloth with the title gilt to the spine, elaborate blind panelling to the boards, pale cream endpapers. Folding map and 4 lithographic plates by Hullmandel from drawings by Burton. A little rubbed, restoration at spine and to joints, light browning, scattered foxing largely marginal, narrow hygroscopic tidemark in the head margin of the plates, remains very good. First and only edition of Burton's first book, this in a variant of the "Prize" issue mentioned by Penzer, here in red cloth with the blocking in blind. Casada considers that it "shows Burton's early development as a travel writer and bears all of the hallmarks of his efforts in this genre" (p.45), while the economic statistician William Newmarch reviewing for The Athenaeum was a little more equivocal, describing it as "at once a very good and a very bad book … a curious piece of patchwork made up of the most heterogeneous materials. Here and there the slang and persiflage are carried to an extreme which borders on the offensive; at other times there are a succession of pages where the writer, laying aside his exaggeration and his boisterousness, permits himself to use those faculties of close and graphic observation which he certainly possesses - and these passages are the most valuable in the volume" (1851, p.423). Before concluding that Burton "is no ordinary observer or an ordinary seeker after adventure. Even in the present instance, he has described so many things that are new, and discussed so many questions that are interesting, that in spite of serious faults we dare say that the volume before us will be eagerly and extensively read" (p.425).

Benton served as a Senator of Missouri from August 10, 1821 to March 3, 1851. Minor wear at the edges, fold marks & toning. SCARCE! Great condition for its age! <br><br> Letter reads: Dear Sir, I have been traveling in the West for near two months past, and the letters which came to the post office here, contrary to my intentions, were put on their travels after me, and I have never over-taken one. In this way, I account for not having heard from you in answer to the last letter I wrote you from Washington City, or one from Louisville--both were the end of March. Among other things, both dated to two payments, and the other a proposition to make an advance on the next note of $4000. Not hearing from you, I write this letter to make inquiries, and if any thing was received from Mr. Vance, to let me know how much, and how remitted, and if in a draft, to send me a duplicate, as a second of a bill of exchange, and also what may have passed in relation to the advance of the next note. Yours truly, Thomas H. Benton.

        TREMENDOUS EXCITEMENT! SAMUEL WHITTAKER AND ROBERT McKENZIE RESCUED FROM THE AUTHORITIES, AND HUNG BY THE VIGILANCE COMMITTEE, ON SUNDAY AUGUST 24th AT 3 O&#39;CLOCK P.M. IN THE PRESENCE OF FIFTEEN THOUSAND PEOPLE [caption title]

      San Francisco: Lith. & Publ. by Justh, Quirot & Co., [1851].. San Francisco: Lith. & Publ. by Justh, Quirot & Co., [1851].. Pictorial letter sheet, 8 3/4 x 10 3/4 inches, on blue wove paper. With blank conjugate leaf still attached. A bit of light wrinkling. Near fine. A scarce California pictorial letter sheet depicting an act of violence by the first Vigilance Committee - the execution of two "Sydney Ducks," Samuel Whittaker and Robert McKenzie. The so-called Sydney Ducks were a gang of Australian convicts who committed a number of arsons and robberies in San Francisco. Their activities, and the seeming inability of the legal authorities to stop them, were one of the factors leading to the establishment of the first Vigilance Committee in 1851. Whittaker and McKenzie were arrested in Sacramento by Committee members on Aug. 20, tried, and sentenced to hang in San Francisco, where they were soon transported. On the 23rd, the San Francisco sheriff and mayor rescued the condemned men from the Committee&#39;s headquarters and put them in jail. On Aug. 24 the Vigilance Committee broke into the jail and recaptured the prisoners, taking them to the Committee headquarters, where they were hanged. McKenzie and Whittaker are shown in this lithograph hanging from the second floor of a commercial building, which also housed the headquarters of the Vigilance Committee. A large crowd is gathered in the street to take in the grisly event, which drew masses of spectators. Telegraph Hill, where many of the Sydney Ducks lived, is seen in the far right background. "No series of events attracted greater attention than the workings of the 1851 and 1856 vigilance committees" - Kurutz (in the introduction to the Clifford Collection). This copy differs from the one described by Baird in that the word "hung" (rather than "hanged") appears in the title, leading us to believe that it is an early issue, produced before the mistake was corrected. Peters locates a copy with "hung" in the title at the California Historical Society (which contains a manuscript letter dated Aug. 30, 1851). This letter sheet was produced by Justh, Quirot & Co., one of the first and most important lithographic firms in San Francisco. Rare, and an important visual component of the rough early history of San Francisco. BAIRD, CALIFORNIA&#39;S PICTORIAL LETTER SHEETS 274 (later issue). CLIFFORD LETTER SHEET COLLECTION 283. PETERS, CALIFORNIA ON STONE, pp.134-36.
