        Revue historique du regne de l'empereur Nicolas I. [???????????? ????????? ???????????? ???????? ?????????? ??????? I].

      Tip. ekpeditsii zagotovleniya gos. bumag Skt. Peterburg 1851 - VIII, 214, [6] pp. Contemporary presentation blue velvet binding, blind tooling to covers, all edges gilt, owner's inscription to half-title; very slightly rubbed. Beautifully bound copy of this overview of the reign of Nicholas I written by one of the most respected historians of that time. Nikolay Ustrialov (1805 –1870) was a Russian historian and professor at the Saint Petersburg University. He published a number of important works on history of Russia, which were favourably received by the Imperial court and government. In 1847 Ustrialov published a historical overview of the reign of Nicholas I in Russian to serve as a textbook for the University students. So important the work was considered that Nicholas I personally reviewed the manuscript and introduced corrections. The original edition was followed by the French translation four years later. The motives of the translator are explained in the introduction. During his travels around Europe Babushkin found the Europeans being very ignorant of the Russian history and culture. The only way to combat it in his opinion would be making reliable historical sources available in the language understood by most of the European courts. Rare. We could not trace the French edition in any public holdings in the West. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

I and III unopened), with excellent provenance, clean, bright and very fresh, with fine renditions of the plates. Wise 291, 293, 295. Shepherd 23. Ray, Illustrator and the Book in England, 31. "Mainly a treatise on architecture, John Ruskin's The Stones of Venice was meant to apply to the buildings of Venice the general principles enunciated in [his] Seven Lamps of Architecture (1848). It moves, however, beyond the earlier work's abstract treatment, not only because it dedicates substantial attention to the details of architectural construction, but also because it places architecture within its social, political, moral, and religious context. Volume I, 'The Foundations', discusses the edifices of Venice and their functional and ornamental aspects and presents a brief history of the city; in Volume II, 'The Sea Stories', Ruskin turned his thoughts to the Byzantine period and the climactic development of Venetian life, its Gothic period, which meant to him 'not only the best, but the only rational architecture', while Renaissance architecture 'is pure in its insipidity, and subtle in its vice'. Crucially, it is in Volume III, 'The Fall' (which also includes the alphabetical guide to the most important buildings of all periods, the Venetian Index), that Ruskin puts forth his thesis that the onset of the Renaissance caused the city's architectural decline; he felt that architecture had lost all of the moral character he had described so eloquently in his earlier volumes, and has instead been turned into the 'perpetuation in stone of the ribaldries of drunkenness' and rowdiness." (Literary Encyclopedia) The three volumes were the "product of the most concentrated period of study in Ruskin's life, including two long winters spent in Venice, from November 1849 to March 1850, and September 1851 to the end of June 1852. . . . [Its importance] lies not in its hostility to the Renaissance, but in its celebration of the Byzantine and the Gothic, which had an immediate effect on Victorian architects, who began to introduce Romanesque forms and Venetian and Veronese colour and sculptural features into their designs." (ODNB) The 10,000-volume library of Henry Bradley Martin was auctioned at Sotheby's in New York, in six parts, in 1989 and 1990. The catalogue ran to nine volumes. N. B.

        A year on the Punjab frontier, in 1848-49

      London: Richard Bentley, 1851. FIRST EDITION. Each volume with half-title, frontispiece portrait in Volume I, 6 plates (3 colored lithograph, 1 double folding), text illustration, 2 folding plans, and a facsimile letter from Vans Agnew to General Van Cortlandt. Contemporary full calf, rebacked, with the gilt logo of the Society of Writers to the Signet on all covers, small stain to lower corner of front board of Volume II; interiors excellent. First edition of Edwardes account of the Punjab Rebellion of 1848, also known as the second Anglo-Sikh War. Edwardes was appointed to the personal staff of Sir Hugh Gough, the Commander-in-Chief of the Indian army, whom he served during the first Anglo-Sikh War (1846-47). Thereafter the Punjab was ruled by a British Resident. With the stirrings of a second rebellion, Edwardes, despite any military training, raised a body of soldiers and defeated rebels loyal to a local Sikh leader. After numerous battles throughout the area, the local governor surrendered following negotiations with Edwardes. As a result of his deeds, he became quite famous and celebrated back in England. Edwardes (1819-1868) returned to the Punjab on a number of occasions, acting as a political appointee posed with the task of maintaining order in the area. For his role in securing the British victory during the War, he is known as the "Hero of Multan.".

        The Pageant 1896 London, H Henry & Co , 1896

      This hardcover is bound in brown linen with gilt stamped doves and ditto title on the front. It looks as if the cover has some light water damage at the back but this did not resolve in any problems for the contents. The pages are untrimmed. The edges are slightly worn but the overall condition of the book is good. 19 x 26,5 cm, [18] 1-243 [viii] pp. The book contains twenty photo reproductions and some smaller prints. The editor of this book Gleeson White (1851-1898) is mainly known for his writing of critical books and articles about graphic design and art. White was part of a group of influential writers and artists that dominated the changing appearance of British art at the end of the nineteenth century. After he had worked as an editor for several magazines he was asked to be the founding editor for The Studio. This magazine about art and design is still seen as the breakthrough opportunity for great illustrators like Aubrey Beardsley, Charles Rickets and Edmund Dulac. The Studio was influenced by the ideals of the arts and Crafts movement. In The Pageant, White combined the great literature of his time with the art of upcoming artists. It contains stories and illustrations by W. B. Yeats, James McNeil Whistler, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Sir Edward Burne Jones. B2324

        Fly-fishing in Salt and Fresh Water.

      John Van Voorst. 1851. 8vo. Oriignal green cloth, gilt elttering to spine; pp. viii + 74 + [2, ads.], 6 plates (5 hand-coloured); previous owner's signature to front pastedown, occasional marginal notes and underlining in pencil, very good. First edition. The authorship of this book has been attributed to various people over the years, including Richard Hely Hutchinson, Horace Gordon Hutchinson and, according to a copy seen by Thacher, a Mrs Hutchinson (Angling Books p. 73). That attribution is echoed in this copy, in which '[by _ Hutchinson]' is written in pencil to the front pastedown. However, Paul Morgan in Saltwater flyfishing (1989) fixed the identity of the author as Richard Bowden-Smith, a Hampshire gentleman and sportsman, on the strength of a note found in a copy of the book owned by Walter, Richard's son. Walter attested that his father wrote the book and that his mother, Georgina, drew the six plates. It is a pioneering work on sea fly-fishing, mainly based in Ireland. The plates feature some unusual flies. Westwood & Satchell p. 95.

        Education as a means of preventing destitution: with exemplifications from the teaching of the conditions of well-being and the principles and applications of economical science at the Birkbeck Schools. Prefaced by a letter to the Right Hon. Lord John Russell, M.P.

      London: Smith Elder and Co 1851 - 8vo., vi + 153 + (1)pp., followed by (2) + 16pp. of advertisements, original blind-stamped maroon cloth, spine gilt lettered, small snags at head and foot of spine, else a fine presentation copy> inscribed at the head of title, 'James Shields Esq. with the author's kind regards'.> First edition: uncommon. William Ellis (1800-1881), economist and educational reformer, joined John Stuart Mill's Utilitarian Society and attended its twice-weekly discussions, Mill himself considered Ellis to be 'An original thinker in the field of political economy'. He was also associated with Lovell and the National Hall. 'Ellis regarded careful moral training and instruction in social well-being as the most beneficent tasks open to popular education; attention to health and careful economy in money and material resources were in his view the measures best calculated to improve the labouring man's condition. In support of these opinions he lectured, wrote, opened schools, instructed their teachers and lavished his fortune. After the beginning made in the National Hall, he established his first school on the premises of the London Mechanics' Institution, calling it in honour of the Institution's president the Birkbeck School, a name which was also applied to the other six schools which Ellis maintained in London between 1848 and 1862. His work and his ideas attracted general attention; they so far interested the Prince Consort that Ellis was called upon to give instruction to the children of the Royal Family'. [J.W. Adamson, English education 1789-1902,> p.162]. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Battle of Cerro Gordo

      Plon Brothers of Paris for D. Appleton & Co. and George S. Appleton 1851 - Hand-coloured lithograph, heightened with gum arabic, printed by Lemercier. A superb image from Kendall's, "The War between the United States and Mexico illustrated?", one of the most important pictorial works relating to the Mexican-American War, the first offensive war fought by the United States. Kendall was America's first great war correspondent, and an ardent proponent of the necessity of America's war with Mexico. When hostilities broke out, he went at once to the Rio Grande where he joined with the Rangers, and later attached himself to the Scott expedition. Kendall's highly detailed account of the war was accompanied by the work of the French artist Carl Nebel, who painted each of the twelve major clashes of the war. Kendall notes in the preface to his work that `Of the twelve illustrations accompanying his work? the greater number were drawn on the spot by the artist. So far as regards the general configuration of the ground, fidelity of the landscape, and correctness of the works and buildings introduced, they may be strictly relied upon? The artist has ever chosen what he deemed the more interesting as well as exciting points of each combat? the greatest care has been taken to avoid inaccuracies.' Cf. Bennett, p. 65; cf. Haferkorn, p. 47; cf. Howes K76; cf. Raines p,132; cf. Sabin 37362; cf. Tyler, Prints of the West p.78.

De schilder, schrijver, pamflettist, afperser en avonturier Jacob Campo Weyerman (bij Charleroi 1677 - Gevangenpoort Den Haag 1747) was in 1720 met de 'Rotterdamschen Hermes' aan een carrière als weekbladschrijver begonnen die tot halverwege de jaren 1730 bijna onafgebroken zou voortduren. Daarnaast maakte de enorm productieve Weyerman toneelstukken, vertaalde hij uit het , 523, en Engels, schreef hij een omvangrijke antipapistische 'Historie des pausdoms' en stelde hij een vierdelig werk samen met kleurrijke, zij het niet bijzonder betrouwbare schildersbiografieën, waaronder een zeer uitgebreide van hem zelf. Sinds enkele decennia wordt de satiricus Weyerman met zijn virtuoos taalgebruik, scherpe humor en ongebreidelde beeldspraak beschouwd als een belangrijk prozaschrijver uit de eerste helft van de achttiende eeuw.In het hier aangeboden eerste deel van 'Den Amsterdamschen Hermes' is door een fout van de binder in plaats van aflevering 24 aflevering 47 geplaatst. Deze aflevering is ook op de juiste plaats, dus na aflevering 46 te vinden. In dit geval is duidelijk te zien hoe de fout kon ontstaan: aflevering 47 (bladzijde 369) hoort katernsignatuur Aaa (3A) te hebben, maar de zetter zette een a'tje te weinig, dus Aa (2A), onderaan de eerste pagina van het katern, met als gevolg dat de binder dit katern bond achter katern Z en niet achter katern Zz (2Z). Had hij gelet op de paginering in plaats van op de katernsignaturen, dan zou hij de fout niet hebben gemaakt."

This famous book gave its early readers a wealth of new material on the Spanish dominions in the New World. It was written by one of the great chroniclers of his age, a man who was a fastidious collector of information and who was, most importantly, a witness to most of what he recorded. His somewhat crude woodcuts are probably the earliest original images of the New World, but it is a pity that he was not more of a draughtsman. However, depictions of exotic cacti, various animals and other natural history specimens are laid before the European reader for the first time. The natives of the area are also shewn, along with examples of their housing, methods of river travel, and fire lighting etc., with perhaps the best illustraton showing the Indians washing gold from a river.

Er wurde bei den Jesuiten erzogen und absolvierte die k. k. Akademie für Orientalische Sprachen. In den Jahren 1812/13 war er wirklicher Legationssekretär beim Fürsten Schwarzenberg. Er übernahm dann verschiedene diplomatische Missionen und war von 1818 bis 1820 Generalkonsul in den Vereinigten Staaten. Von 1834 bis 1850 war er als Internuntius in Konstantinopel tätig; bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt hatte er sich als diplomatischer Vermittler in Missionen in ganz Europa- und Amerika wie als Mitbegründer der österreichischen Dampfschifffahrt nach dem Orient einen ausgezeichneten Namen gemacht" (Wikipedia). - Gedruckt erschien 1886 bei Gerold in Wien „Die Berichte des Kais.

        Holograph document signed four times by Lincoln: a legal deposition entirely in Lincoln's hand.

      Springfield, ILL.: 20 February, 1851 - 1 page, small folio (317 x 200 mm) on pale blue paper (watermarked "Moinier's 1849"). Housed in a custom-made flap-case: black morocco spine, marbled sides; engraved portrait of Lincoln set into inside front. Double punch hole and slight horizontal creasing at head, three light lateral creases where folded, remains of tape on verso (at head), very minor toning at foot, a few minor smudges in body of document, very short closed-tear at foot (affecting the second "s" in "Commissioner"). In excellent, the wording of the deposition strong, clear and perfectly legible. A fascinating legal document entirely in Lincoln's hand and showing him as the hard-working "prairie lawyer" involved in the minutiae of the law: signed three times in the main deposition and again at the foot, "Abraham Lincoln Commissioner"; also signed by Thomas Lewis - one of the patentees of the "atmospheric churn" – at lower right, as witness to his own statement transcribed by Lincoln. The document opens: "Deposition of Willis H. Johnson, and Thomas Lewis, witnesses produced, sworn, and examined on oath on the 20th day of February, in the year of our Lord one thousand, eight hundred and fifty one, at the Office of Abraham Lincoln, in Springfield, in the State of Illinois, by me Abraham Lincoln, by virtue of a commission issuing out of the Supreme Court of Judicature of the People of the State of New York, to me, Abraham Lincoln ". This deposition is linked to a patent case that was long-winded and far from straightforward; it is discussed in some detail in Brian Dirck's Lincoln the Lawyer: "In 1849 [Lincoln] was hired by John Moffett, part of a three-man partnership to market and sell an 'atmospheric churn,' a device that created butter more quickly than conventional churns by injecting air directly into the cream. Moffett was not the churn's designer, that honor belonged to his partner Willis Johnson, a creative and busy Springfield inventor who also came up with new ways of processing flax and hemp, pumping water, and mixing cement. Moffett and a third party, Thomas Lewis, did the sales work, selling churns in Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Lewis racked up over $50,000 worth of sales. St. Louis had been particularly fertile ground, where he displayed the churn in front of a saloon and on the sidewalk by his hotel. Moffett's understanding was that the partners' arrangement called for selling the machine without him or Lewis earning any commission. He was therefore dismayed to learn that Lewis paid himself a $4,000 commission from the proceeds of his efforts". After the court decided Lewis should pay Moffett $1,300 Lewis appealed and the case went up to the state supreme court, "which ruled that he did not need to pay Moffett anything at all. It would have been difficult for Lincoln to find a clear distinction between progressive economic development and its retardation in this case. Nor did the patent laws seem to do much for the 'fire of genius' behind the atmospheric churn. Willis Johnson did not get anything out of the lawsuit (he tried to bring his own case against Lewis, but failed). The churn itself was worthless. During the appeal, the chief justice of the Illinois Supreme Court marveled at Lewis's ingenuity in earning so much money from peddling what was a dismal failure of a machine" (Chapter 4: 'The Energy Man', p. 89). In his deposition, Lewis states: "I am one of the patentees of what is called Johnson & Lewis' Atmospheric Churn – I, for myself and partners, did sell and transfer the principal part of our interest under the patent for said churn, in the year 1848 – I sold to " and then lists 35 individuals to whom transfers were made and names the territories they have rights to: "all England, all Canada, all Oregon, and all the United States excepting twenty counties in Illinois". Thomas Lewis (b. 1808) was a native of New Jersey. He arrived in Springfield with his family in 1837, shortly after Lincoln himself had moved there. He was

Justement j’ai écrit à Bernard mon désir de partir pour Paris donc votre offre pour m’envoyer le voyage tombe à point et je l’accepte de grand cœur. Du reste à Paris je vais me débrouiller pour vendre quelque chose, vous serez donc remboursé je crois en peu de temps. Le 4 ou le 5 je me mets en chemin de fer. Et si je ne réussis pas pour le Toukin je vais tâcher de travailler en dehors de la peinture car il faut tenir la cape pendant quelque temps. Ou bien encore je pousserai le ministre des finances pour me donner en France n’importe quoi. Mais il faut que e sois à Paris pour cela. [ ]". - The French Post-Impressionist artist, painter, art teacher and art collector Émile Schuffenecker (1851-1934) was a close friend of Paul Gauguin and Odilon Redon, and one of the first collectors of works by Vincent van Gogh. Until the early 1890s when Gauguin and Schuffenecker quarrelled, Schuffenecker gave great support to Gauguin, encouraging him to take up a career as a painter. He also had the idea for the 1889 Exhibition at the Volpini Gallery, a key moment in Gauguin's influence on young painters.
