        Autograph letter signed to James Gibson regarding the Homebush race meeting

      12 May, Government House, Sydney 1851 - Manuscript letter, 230 x 180 mm., laid paper folded to form four pages, excellent condition. "Busy preparing for the Homebush meeting" Original letter concerning a race meeting at Homebush in 1851. Fitzroy thanks James Gibson, head agent for the Van Diemen's Land company, for sending four deer from Tasmania, and goes on to discuss the imminent race: 'we are busy preparing for the Homebush meeting which it is expected will eclipse those of former years.' The letter dates from the earliest phase of racing at Homebush, at a time when George FitzRoy served as secretary to his father Governor-General Sir Charles FitzRoy (former Governor of New Zealand and commander of the Beagle expedition). Horseracing was enjoyed from the earliest days of the colony: the First Fleet had collected horses at Cape Town and the first thoroughbreds arrived from Britain in 1802. Hyde Park was the site of our first race ground, followed by Bellevue Hill and Camperdown. Some years later, in March 1841, the first Homebush races attracted a staggering 9000 of the city's 45,000 inhabitants. The Australian Jockey Club, which had been formalised in 1842 and continued to hold race meetings at Homebush and Randwick, attracted the best and brightest in the colony, including army officers, entrepreneurs and aristocrats such as the Fitzroys. By the mid-nineteenth century Australian bloodlines had been refined with expensive imported Arabians, many from India, and owning a champion became a sure path to social prestige in the flourishing colony.

        A Tahitian and English Dictionary , with Introductory Remarks on the Polynesian Language, and a Short Grammar of the Tahitian Dialect: with an Appendix containing a list of Foreign Words used in the Tahitian Bible, in Commerce, etc., witk (sic) the sources from whence they have been derived

      Printed at the London Missionary Society's press, Tahiti 1851 - Octavo, a very attractive copy in fine clean condition, in a contemporary binding of marbled sheep, flat spine decorated in gilt, red leather label. The first Tahitian-English dictionary. First edition: a beautifully produced book, printed by the missionaries in Tahiti. The first complete dictionary of the Tahitian language, this was the first such book of its kind to be printed in Tahiti, and was only the third dictionary printed in the Pacific (preceded only by Andrews, Hawaiian Vocabulary, printed at Lahaina in 1836; and a Tongan dictionary of 1841). The first attempt at a Tahitian vocabulary by Guillaume de Humboldt had appeared in Berlin in 1843, appended to a larger work on the languages of the Marquesas Islands and Tahiti by Johann Carl Eduard Buschmann. The compiler, John Davies (1772-1855), was a pioneer missionary in the Pacific; he had compiled a short grammar of Tahitian which was printed on the mission's press in 1823. His grammar also appears here, revised and printed for only the second time as part of this larger work. The important dictionary was the result of the collective work of the first missionaries sent to Tahiti by the London Missionary Society, edited by Davies, with considerable input from his colleague missionary Orsmond. The dictionary contains over 10,000 words, many of which have since fallen out of use. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Johann Sebastian Bach's Werke. Herausgegeben von der Bach-Gesellschaft in Leipzig

Engraved throughout. With attractive bust-length frontispiece portrait of Bach by L. Sichling after G. Haussmann to Volume I. From the collection of the noted American composer Mary Howe (1882-1964). Bindings very slightly worn. Some browning and occasional minor defects, but a very good set overall. Lacking Volume 3; Volume 13 part 2; Volume 31 part 3; Volume 40; and Volume 45 parts 1 and 2. . An attractively-printed set of the first complete edition of Bach's works, published by the Bach-Gesellschaft, founded in Leipzig in 1850 "with the primary intention of producing a collected edition of Bach's works. It grew out of the Bach revival of the early decades of the 19th century that increasingly focused on the composer's great vocal works. These had previously been largely neglected, but several attempts were now made by individuals or publishers to initiate editions of the complete works or of particular groups of works. During the second half of the 18th century Bach's works had been transmitted mainly in manuscript copies, but in the early 19th century, after the dispersions of several great manuscript collections, the need arose to secure his music - now valued as a national heritage - once and for all in reliable editions." Boyd, ed.: J.S. Bach, p. 56-57. Mary Howe (1882-1964) was an important figure in early 20th century American music history. In addition to her activities as a composer, she raised the money to found the Washington-based National Symphony Orchestra in 1930; founded, together with Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge, the Chamber Music Society of Washington; and helped to organize the Association of American Women Composers with Amy Beach.

        The Fonografic Star

      London - Fred Pitman, 1851. London - Fred Pitman, 1851 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collection of periodicals written in Pitman Shorthand, complete in twelve parts, covering all months of 1851. With illustrated title page, and further illustrated title page to each monthly part. Sir Isaac Pitman (4 January 1813 12 January 1897), knighted in 1894, developed the most widely used system of shorthand, known now as Pitman shorthand. He first proposed this in Stenographic Soundhand in 1837. Pitman was a qualified teacher and taught at a private school he founded in Wotton-under-Edge. He was also the vice president of the Vegetarian Society. Like most systems of shorthand, Pitman's is a phonetic system; the symbols do not represent letters, but rather sounds, and words are, for the most part, written as they are spoken. As of 1996, Pitman shorthand was the most popular shorthand system used in the United Kingdom and the second most popular in the United States. Copperplate inscription to front free endpaper, and further small inscription to title page of each monthly part. Condition: In a cloth binding with leather spine label.

      , [1851]. [1851]. Spectacular Illustrations, Spectacular Binding[KELLIEGRAM BINDING]. BUNYAN, John. SCOTT, David (illustrator). The Pilgrim's Progress. With Forty Illustrations by David Scott; A Life of Bunyan by Rev. J.M. Wilson; and Explanatory Notes abridged from the Rev. Thomas Scott. London: A. Fullarton and Co., n.d. [1851]. First Scott-illustrated edition. Quarto (10 3/8 x 7 in; 263 x 175 mm). xlviii, 147, [1] pp. Frontispiece by R. Young and forty etched plates designed by D. Scott. Bound by Kelly & Sons (blind-stamp signed "Kelligram/Binding" on lower rear turn-in) in full crushed brown morocco featuring rectilinear fillet borders with onlaid olive and antelope brown morocco corner-pieces with a marvelous varicolored pictorially onlaid scene reiterating the plate, "Christian equipped goes on his way," (facing p. 46) enclosed by a ovate frame of black morocco, the whole with foliate sprays at corners. Gilt rolled raised bands, Gilt ornamented compartments. Doublures with gilt corner-pieces and green moire silk endpapers. Publisher's original cloth preserved at rear. A fine copy. Housed in the original red cloth, fleece-lined clamshell case."Foremost among the artists influenced by William Blake ‘comes a very great though as yet imperfectly acknowledged name, that of David Scott of Edinburgh [1806-1849], a man whom Blake himself would have delighted to honour,’ Dante Gabriel Rossetti wrote about the Scottish painter in a chapter added to Alexander Gilchrist’s biography on Blake published first in 1880... the editor of the Burlington Magazine reasoned a century after the Scotman’s death, in 1949, that Scott should be considered ‘as one who in part anticipated the English Pre-Raphaelites, but who died at the moment of their appearance’ "The mind and hand, in all respects worthy to illustrate the immortal allegory of the nonconformist preacher of Bedford, must be of no common order: it is not the elegant draftsman, nor the artist whose facility of invention is beyond dispute, that can do him justice. There must be a deep feeling of reverence in harmony with the subject, and a quaintness, if the term may be allowed, of pictorial expression, such as we find in the book itself. And these perhaps are just the qualifications which the late David Scott pre-eminently possessed, and which are remarkably developed in the plates before us. There is in them an abundance of invention, highly imaginative and poetical... We can [pay these designs no higher compliment than to say, that two spirits more in unison with each other were never occupied, as writer and illustrator, than those of John Bunyan and David Scott" The Art Journal, March 2, 1851, p. 100).The beautifully inlaid/onlaid and colorful "Kelliegram bindings were one of many innovations of the English commercial binding firm of Kelly & Sons. The Kelly family had one of the longest connections in the history of the binding trade in London, having been founded in 1770 by John Kellie, as the name was then spelled. The binding firm was carried on by successive members of the family into the 1930s. William Henry Kelly significantly developed the company in the first half of the nineteenth century, followed by William Henry, Jr., Henry, and Hubert Kelly, who took control in 1892, taking the firm into the twentieth century…The development [during the 1880s] that came to be known as Kelliegram was one of the bindery's most notable, and the popularity continues today as demonstrated by the prices Kelliegram bindings command at auction and in the rare book trade" (Dooley, Kelliegram Bindings, Brynmawr Library)

        Lectures on the Philosophy of the Human Mind

      Edinburgh - Adam and Charles Black, 1851. Edinburgh - Adam and Charles Black, 1851 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Lectures on the Philosophy of the Human Mind by the late Thomas Brown with a memoir of the authorby David Welsh with an engraved portrait to frontispiece. Nineteenth edition. 'Brown considers that philosophy of mind is basically an analytic studythat seeks to order what is observed to becomplex. While agreeing withReid and Stewart that understanding is based on first principles that are not derivable from experience, he considers that they multiply the number of them without warrant. His study covers the emotional, intellectual, moral, and religious aspects of human being. In relation to morality, he criticises the views of Hobbes, Clarke, Wollaston and Hume; as for religion he is convinced that the evidence of the relationships between natural objects makes it psychologically impossible not to believe in the reality of a benevolent creator. ' [from the catalogue of D. A. Pailin]From the antiquarian library of Emeritus ProfessorDavid Arthur Pailin, with bookplate to front pastedown with an ink inscription dated October 1969. Condition: Rebound inbuckram. Externally, in excellent condition with only very slight bumping and wear. Internally, generally firmly bound.

        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.

Thomas Penson De Quincey was an English essayist, best known for his Confessions of an English Opium-Eater. 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'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's works from their original magazine appearances. Twenty-two volumes of De Quincey's Writings were issued from 1851 to 1859. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Bird's Eye View of New Orleans

      1851-1859 (?). 1851-1859 (?) Very rare and early Bird's Eye View map of New Orleans, Louisiana. Shows the city in minute detail with the bending Mississippi River in foreground crowded with steamboats. The outstanding reference on city view maps of the United States (John W. Reps; Views and Viewmakers of Urban America 1825-1925) indicates that the original map here offered is the map drawn and lithographed by Thomas Muller in New Orleans sometime in the 1850's.. There are two circa 1850's bird's eye view maps of New Orleans, one of which was drawn and lithographed by J. Bachmann. That map is rare in the original state but has been reproduced in modern times. The Muller map is very similar in appearance to the Bachmann map, but the river traffic of steamboats and sailing vessels is notably different from the Bachman version. Our map, which is number 1160 in Reps, does not appear to have ever been reproduced commercially. There is no doubt this is the Muller map, but the artist and publisher info that would have been present in the lower margin is missing because a previous owner cut down the map for framing. So although the essential elements of the map such as Jackson Square, the French Quarter, the business and garden districts, etc etc are present, there are some missing portions especially at one side and at lower edge. There is a photo of the map (a colorized version) available online at the Mariner's Musuem of Newport News (search using keyword Muller) and it shows that this map was titled "Nouvelle Orleans -- Nueva Orleans." Comparing the Maritime Museum copy with this copy shows that the left side of our map (not the French Quarter side) is the side that was cropped. The dimensions of this copy under the matting were recorded by a previous owner as being 16 by 20 inches. The size of the viewable image as matted is approximately 15 1/4 inches by 19 7/8 inches. The map in its original dimensions would have been 17 7/8 by 24 1/2 inches. There are a few closed tears on the map which are not particularly evident except under close examination. But there are some closed tears at the upper right portion of the sky that are more evident on first viewing, and there is also a tide line of an old damping stain in the clouds near the right side. Still, a quite attractive bird's eye view map as framed. Early bird's eye view maps of American scenes are uniformly desirable, and Reps shows only five holdings of this particular map in United States institutions (Chicago Historical Society, Historic New Orleans Collection, Mariner's Museum of Newport News, Tulane University in New Orleans, and the Louisiana State Museum in New Orleans. Library of Congress reportedly has a facsimile example. However, a search of Tulane, Historic New Orleans Collection and LOC did not locate their supposed copies of the map. This map, because of its desirability and rarity, would be worth several thousands of dollars if it was in better condition and uncropped. Our copy priced accordingly. It is nicely toned with age as appropriate for an antique map. Of current interest because of the hurricane Katrina catastrophe. This map shows that there were industrial canals heading into the city from Lake Pontchartrain even in the 1850's, and one of those shown on this map was probably the very one which gave way during Katrina and flooded many sections of the city. This map was professionally matted and framed and will be shipped in its frame. Under plexiglass for better protection of the map. . Framed 20 1/2 x 24 1/2 Inches. Good. Illus. by Th. Muller. Image Size 16 x 20 Inches.

        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.

        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.
