An den Sänger Ludwig Cramolini (1805-1884) in Darmstadt: "Vor ein paar Tagen von einer kleinen Reise zurückgekehrt fand ich Deinen Brief; Du kannst Dir denken daß ich bemüht war Deinem Wunsche so schnell wie möglich zu entsprechen.

Ich will sie sogleich packen und Dir übersenden, nur mußt Du so gut seyn die fehlenden Strophen ergänzen die Du ja haben mußt. Der Preis für diese Partitur 1. u. 2. Theil ist 3 Louisdor (33 fl.) kannst im schlimmsten Fall herunterhandeln lassen auf 25 fl. weniger aber keinen Kreuzer; ich habe von den kleinsten Provinzbühnen 33 fl. recht gerne bekommen [...]".

        Plan Of The Town Of Meriden

      Philadelphia: , 1851 Philadelphia, 1851. No Binding. Very Good. 35 x 41 inches.. 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).

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.

      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.

Many scholars suggest that in publishing this work De Quincey inaugurated the tradition of addiction literature in the West. During the final decade of his life, De Quincey laboured on a collected edition of his works. Ticknor and Fields, a Boston publishing house, first proposed such a collection, and solicited De Quincey&#39;s approval and co-operation . It was only when De Quincey, a chronic procrastinator, failed to answer repeated letters from James Thomas Fields that the American publisher proceeded independently, reprinting the author&#39;s works from their original magazine appearances. Twenty-two volumes of De Quincey&#39;s Writings were issued from 1851 to 1859.

        Lehrbuch der Pandekten.

      Marburg, Verlag der Elwert'schen Universitätsbuchhandlung, 1851-56.. 6., verm. und verbess. Aufl. 3 Bde. 8vo. (I:) XVI, 1028; (II:) XII, 685; (III:) XV, 776 S. Sehr schöne zeitgenössische Halblederbände mit marmoriertem Buntpapierbezug und marmoriertem Schnitt. (2 kleinere St.a.T.).. Der berühmteste Rechtslehrer unter den Pandektisten nach Savigny war zweifelsohne Karl Adolph von VANGEROW (1808-1870), der 1840 als Nachfolger von Thibaut nach Heidelberg berufen worden ist. Seine Pandektenvorlesungen erlangten beinahe legendären Ruhm und zogen einen Strom von Jurastudenten immer dorthin, wo Vangerow lehrte. Vangerow studierte in Marburg und Heidelberg, wo er im Jahre 1829 promovierte. Im Jahre 1833 wurde er ao.Professor in Marburg und begann dort seine ersten Pandektenvorlesungen zu halten. Im Jahre 1835 begann Vangerow seine Vorlesungen zu publizieren. Das Werk wird von seinen zeitgenossen als ein Lehrbuch in höchster Vollendung beschrieben, das sich nicht nur dur Literatur- und Stoffbeherrschung auszeichnet, sondern das auch in umfangreichen Anmerkungen die einzelnen Kontroversen erschöpfend behandelt.
