        PRACTICAL ILLUSTRATION OF THE FUGITIVE SLAVE LAW [caption title].

      [Boston? 1850-1851?] - Lithograph, 13 x 16 1/2 inches. Matted. Light scattered foxing, but generally a clean, crisp copy. Very good. A striking lithographed cartoon illustrating the tensions over the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. This severe law was part of the Compromise of 1850 orchestrated by Henry Clay, and it allowed slave owners to pursue and capture their "property" without due process, laid heavy penalties on those who hoped to assist escaped slaves, and enjoined all citizens to aid in the implementation of the statutes. "Thousands of Negroes [sic] who had been settled in the North for years, found reputable employment, built homes, and reared families, were now in danger of being dragged back into servitude. It was not difficult to kidnap a free Negro on the pretext that he was a slave. Many Northerners, including prominent ministers, defied it. The newspapers were soon full of news of rescues or attempted rescues of fugitive blacks, while some of the most noted statesmen of the North went into the law court to defend alleged fugitives. Salmon P. Chase of Ohio, for example, was soon called 'attorney general for runaway Negroes.'. This cartoon, a bit freer in drawing than cartoons generally at that time, appeals to Northern indignation over the law, showing an arrogant slave driver riding a bitted Daniel Webster, while Garrison defends a cowering black woman" - Weitenkampf. "A satire on the antagonism between Northern abolitionists on the one hand, and Secretary of State Daniel Webster and other supporters of enforcement of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. Here abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison (left) holds a slave woman in one arm and points a pistol toward a burly slave catcher mounted on the back of Daniel Webster. The slave catcher, wielding a noose and manacles, is expensively dressed, and may represent the federal marshals or commissioners authorized by the act (and paid) to apprehend and return fugitive slaves to their owners. Behind Garrison a black man also aims a pistol toward the group on the right, while another seizes a cowering slaveholder by the hair and is about to whip him saying, "It's my turn now Old Slave Driver.". The print may (as Weitenkampf suggests) be the work of New York artist Edward Williams Clay. The signature, the expressive animation of the figures, and especially the political viewpoint are, however, uncharacteristic of Clay. (Compare for instance that artist's "What's Sauce for the Goose," no. 1851- 5.) It is more likely that the print was produced in Boston, a center of bitter opposition to the Fugitive Slave Act in 1850 and 1851" - Reilly. A rare and vivid illustration, with only six copies located on OCLC. NEVINS & WEITENKAMPF, pp.70-71. REILLY, p.344.

        Ein Ausflug nach dem Glaserberge. -- Original Manuskript mit 1 Aquarell und 36 Federzeichnungen.

      Halbleinwand-Einband der Zeit. Gr-4. 30 x 26 cm -- Aquarelliertes Titelblatt, 37 nn. Bll. und 18 Tafeln mit zusammen 36 lavierten Original-Zeichnungen. -- Aussergewöhnliches Manuskript einer Reise von 4 Männern aus Jauernig (Javornik) in Mährisch-Schlesien zum Glaserberg (Keprnik). Die Männer fahren von Javornik aus mit der Postkutsche über Friedberg (Zulova) und Linderwiese (Lipova-Lazne) nach Thomasberg bei Waldenburg (Domasov bei Bela). Dort beginnt die Fußwanderung und führt über die Brandlehne und dem Blasebalg zum Glaserberg (Keprnik 1423m), wo die 4 Männer in der Glaserberghütte übernachten. Der Rückweg führt über Heidebrünnel (Vresová Studanka), wo auch die Kapelle betreten wird, über den Keilberg mit Blick in die Schneegräben, über die Schwarzkoppelbaude dann durch Oberthomasdorf und Hinterthomasdorf zurück nach Thomasdorf. -- Das Manuskript wurde von Johann Schwarzer geschrieben, die Zeichnugnen sind ebenfalls von ihm. Johann Schwarzer wurde 1851 als Sohn eines Maurers in Javornik geboren. Er studierte Maschinenbau und machte Ausbildungen in Hirschberg (Doksy), Magdeburg, Leipzig und Bernburg and er Saale. Er war auf die Errichtung von Zuckerfabriken spezialisiert. In dieser Tätigkeit richtete er 1901 eine Anlage in Kuba ein. Auf ausgedehnten Auftragsreisen lernte er einen beträchtlichen Teil der Welt kennen (Kuba 1878, 1890, 1894, 1901, Brasilien 1885, Nordamerika 1892/93, Mexiko 1893/94, 1901, Java 1895, Australien 1897/98, Neuseeland 1898, Peru 1901, Guatemala 1901). Als aufmerksamer Beobachter hielt Johann Schwarzer in zahlreichen Briefen seine Erlebnisse fest und sammelte exotische Objekte und Tiere, die er den Schulen seiner Heimatstadt zur Verfügung stellte. Er starb am 10. August 1901 in Zopotlan el grande/Ciudad Guzmán (Mexiko). -- Vorliegendes Manuskript schrieb er während seiner Ausbildung in Magdeburg. Die Erzählweise ist humorvoll, auch sind die Zeichnungen eher Karikaturen. Das sehr schöne aquarellierte Titelblatt zeigt eine Ansicht von Javornik, die Glaserberghütte sowie zwei Szenen der Wanderung. In den Aussenecken sind die vier Portraits der vier Männer, welche die Wanderung unternahmen. 3 davon sind gemalt, eines ist eine montierte Original-Fotografie. Bei welchem der Portraits es sich um Johann Schwarzer handelt, konnten wir nicht herausfinden, vermutlich ist er aber auf dem Foto dargestellt. -- Mehrere der Zeichnugnen sind von Johann Schwarzer signiert, manchmal auch datiert, ebenso das aquarellierte Titelblatt. -- -- Vermutlich handelt es sich bei Johann Schwarzer (geb. 1880 in Jauernig -1914), dem österreichischem Fotograf und Filmregisseur erotischer Kurzfilme, um den Sohn des Verfassers unseres Manuskriptes. -- Der Einband ist etwas berieben, teils etwas fleckig. Der Buchblock ist zu Beginn angebrochen. -- Ein aussergewöhnliches Manuskript eines aussergewöhnliches Mannes aus Javornik in Mährisch-Schlesien.

Februar 1851 geführten Gerichtsverhandlung bezüglich des Pfälzer Aufstands gegen die bayerische Regierung. 333 Personen waren wegen eines gewaltsamen Überfalls gegen die pfälzischen Gemeinden Steinfeld, Rechtenbach und Schweigen am 17. Juni 1849 angeklagt. - Der "Pfälzer Aufstand" (2. Mai bis 19. Juni 1849) entstand als demokratische Bewegung in der Pfalz, nachdem der Bayerische König die Deutsche Verfassung der Paulskirche abgelehnt hatte und die Gültigkeit der ersten deutschen bürgerlichen Grundrechte für Bayern verneinte. Aus einem Treffen von 12000 Bürgern der demokratischen Volksvereine der Pfalz beschloss die Volksversammlung eine provisorische Regierung auf der rechtlichen Grundlage der Frankfurter Reichsversammlung. Es entstand eine provisorische Regierung mit dem Ziel einer faktischen Loslösung der Rheinpfalz von der bayerischen Herrschaft. - Gebräunt und stockfleckig, teilweise auch mit Feuchtigkeitsrändern.

        Vergleichende Untersuchungen der Keimung, Entfaltung und Fruchtbildung höherer Kryptogamen (Moose, Farrn, Equisetaceen, Rhizocarpeen und Lycopodiaceen) und der Samenbildung der Coniferen.

      Verlag von Friedrich Hofmeister, Leipzig 1851 - 4to (265 x 217 mm). viii, 179 [1] pp. and 33 numbered engraved plates bound at end, each with numerous figures illustrating plant structure. Contemporary half sheep, gilt-lettered spine, re-sprinkled edges (extremities and boards rubbed, corners worn, leather at spine and boards partially chipped, upper inner hinge broken). Internally little marginal browning, occasional minor spotting and soiling, plates generally quite fresh. Provenance: Collecta Friesia. Elias Fries (1794-1878); Thore M. Fries (1832-1913, signed on first flyleaf); Robert Fries (1876-1966); Magnus Fries (1917-1987); Robert Fries (b. 1952). All in all a fine and unsophisticated copy, extremely rare in contemporary binding as here (the Norman copy is in a modern binding). ---- Norman 1083; Evans 89a; Nissen BBI 902; Waller 11538; D.S.B. VI, p.465-7; cf. Dibner 34 (1862 English edition only). EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION OF A CLASSIC IN THE HISTORY OF BOTANY. Son and heir of the Leipzig music publisher, Hofmeister was almost entirely self-educated in science and mathematics. Possibly because of his severe myopia, he was attracted to the study of botany early on and became an excellent microscopist. Like many of his generation, he was heavily influenced by Schleiden's textbook, which introduced a new methodology to the study of plant morphology and urged researchers to focus on cell structure and the study of life history. Hofmeister's early work in this area earned him a highly unusual honorary doctorate of philosophy in 1851, shortly before publication of the present work, "for which he is now remembered" (D.S.B.). In it Hofmeister presents without introduction the morphology and life cycles of several cryptogamic species (non-flowering plants such as mosses, ferns, lichens, etc.), in order of increasing complexity. Hofmeister "revealed the process of fertilization in non-flowering plants. as a regular alternation of sexual and asexual generations in the mosses, ferns. horsetails and liverworts. [He showed thatj the asexual generation propagated by means of spores, altemating with one in which spermatozoids unite with ova" (Dibner). "The amount of new information presented is immense; the errors are minor and do not affect the overall picture. With this single publication, the core of botany passed from its Middle Ages to the modern period" (D.S.B.). Hofmeister's researches led him to the "revolutionary conclusion that all green land plants undergo a regular alternation of dissimilar generations in their complete life histories" (Norman), a major step toward a unitary classification of plant life. The extension of Hofmeister's classification to the higher taxonomic groupings of conifers and flowering plants "could not fail to foster the growth of phylogenetic and evolutionary ideas" (Morton, History of botanical science, London 1981, p. 403). Hofmeister's work is presented without commentary and requires for comprehension a straight page-by-page reading. In 1852, the English botanist Arthur Henfrey published an expanded version, complete with commentary and other features that brought the work "from the level of the research worker down to that of the student" (DSB); this version appeared in the Tagungsberichte über die Fortschritte der Natur- und Heilkunde. A second edition, an English translation incorporating supplementary papers and revisions by the author, was published in 1862. According to DSB, of approximately 100 extant copies of this first edition, only five have appeared on the market in the past several decades. We can only trace one copy (the Norman copy) at auction in the past 70 years and another copy offered by Goldschmidt in a 1939 catalogue. * Elias Fries (1794-1878)*, famous Swedish mycologist and botanist. His most important work was "Systema mycologicum" published in 1821-32. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Auswahl merkwürdiger Pilze.

      - Wien, Rudolf Sammer, 1851. Folio (39.6 x 26.2 cm). Title page with plate explanations on verso, 16 large, hand-coloured engraved plates. Later marbled wrappers.l Important and very rare work on mushrooms living on trees by the Austrian botanist Leopold Trattinnick (1764-1849), curator of the k.k. Hof-Naturaliencabinete from 1809 to 1835. Several species were named and described by the author, others by Persoon, and Fries. According to Stafleu & Cowan (VI: pp. 436, 441), Trattinnick sold wax models of mushrooms. The publisher, Sammer, took the plates from the estate, hence the posthumous publication. The plates were drawn by Frister, Schmid, Strenzel, and others, and engraved by Leitner. According to Volbracht, who copied a plate (one of the few plates thought important enough to fill a whole page of his Miko Libri!), this work is "Sehr Selten" [very rare]. There is also a plain edition, but this is the rare and finely coloured one, producing some stunning plates. Stafleu & Cowan, 14890; Volbracht, 2122. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Moby-Dick; or, The Whale.

      1851 - First American edition. 8vo. Green cloth variant in first state binding with sides stamped in blind with heavy ruled frame and publisher's circular device at centre, orange-coated endpapers, bookplate to front pastedown. Skilfully recased. [i-xxiv], [1]-[635], 6ads pp. New York, Harper & Brothers The American first edition of 2,915 copies of Moby-Dick was published on 14th November 1851, less than one month after the first English edition of 500 copies in three volume sets, bearing the alternative title The Whale. This slight staggering of publication was in order to take advantage of the better protected English copyright laws. Melville had experienced a lapse in popularity after his early career successes, and due to a sizeable debt owed to his publishing house, paid for the setting of his own proofs. This did however enable him to make further textual edits right up to the wire, giving academics plenty to work with in terms of decrypting the authorial intent and bibliographic primacy between the two first editions. The general consensus is that although the first English contains some later authorial edits and amendments (Melville had an extra six weeks with the English proofs after the American plates had already been set); away from Melville?s obsessively keen eye, the London publishers thoroughly bowdlerised the text to avoid offending the Victorian sensibilities of their readers. Sexual, political and religious references were neutralised or expunged, the grammatical irregularities and nuanced wordplay was conservatised, and the final epilogue was omitted entirely. This omission was almost certainly an error rather than a deliberate decision, as this closing chapter contains the key to Ishmael?s fate, and without it undermines the whole narrative voice of the English edition, essentially rendering the story from the perspective of a dead man. The American edition did not sell out in Melville?s life time, making it one of his least commercially successful books. It was not until 1930 when it was finally reprinted by Lakeside Press that it began its ascent to the podium of great works of American literature. This copy bears the bookplate of the Newberry Library's Melville collection, and was withdrawn as a duplicate in 1993. BAL 13664; Grolier American 60 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed

      Ste Pélagie, October 2, 1851 - 3 ½ pages. 8vo. To an unnamed addressee ("cher et ancien collègue"). Proudhon had been transferred to Sainte-Pélagie, near his family; for him it was like being a prisoner in his own room, since he was not even allowed his three days of monthly leave. He could only see his wife and talk to her from his window. "Comme si j’étais aux arrêts dans ma chambre [ ] J’ai répondu que je me considérais comme prisonnier de guerre, non comme coupable mis en pénitence; que je sortais sur parole, c’est-à-dire sous la condition de rentrer à l’heure dite, et de ne me mêler en rien à la politique [.] et que je n’entendais subir aucune prescription qui pût changer le caractère de la détention politique, telle que je la conçois et la comprends. [In the ministry,] on veut absolument que je sois un criminel, et que je me tienne pour tel. Si on use de modération envers ma personne, [.] c’est qu’on espère obtenir ma conversion. Prisonnier de guerre! Cela sonne mal aux oreilles du Gouvernement, qui, comme l’Église, se croit infaillible, et hors de lui, ne voit qu’erreur et délit. " Furthermore, he talks about the role of fathers in society and of wives: " [I am] double père de famille [.] avec la plénitude de l’existence, il me semble que j’ai acquis une plénitude de volonté, de force, et d’idée, que nul célibataire n’obtiendra jamais. [.] ce qui a fait la force incomparable du Peuple Romain, pendant 6 siècles, c’est que ces gens-là, soldats, consuls, sénateurs, etc., étaient tous pères de famille; [.] nous n’avons plus ce caractère. On se marie par intérêt, ou par amour; on se marie pour être riche, ou pour nager dans la volupté. Double erreur, double insulte au mariage. [Women should be] simples, matrones, laborieuses, sévères, retirées, modestes, et soumises [.] Il n’y a plus de pères de famille en France: et je vois approcher le jour où la France ne sera plus une nation."

        La pena dei lavori forzati considerata nella sua applicazione pratica ossia i bagni marittimi negli Stati sardi studiati sotto l'aspetto economico-statistico-igienico-morale ed al confronto della riforma penitenziaria

      Ferrando, 1851. In 8, pp. XXIII + 486 con tavv. sinottiche n.t., 2 grandi tavv. sinottiche f.t. piu' volte rip. e 1 tav. in lit. acquerellata a mano all'antip. Nota manoscritta coeva a p. VII. D. rifatto. Qualche alone ai p. Br. ed. Saggio relativo alle abitudini di vita dei condannati ai lavori forzati presso i bagni marittimi negli Stati Sardi. In particolare, l'A. cita l'impiego dei condannati al porto di Genova nei lavori alla darsena e all'arsenale. Oltre a coloro incaricati dello spurgo del porto, ci sono magazzinieri, imbianchini, fabbri, ferrai, falegnami, cordai, maestri d'ascia, stagnai, calderai, bottai. Ad essi il Governo forniva il vitto giornaliero che consisteva in una razione di 'trentadue oncie di pane, piu' quattr'oncie di fave per la minestra [...]. Una giubba rossa di molettone, una berretta rossa in lana, e pantaloni di tela, una camicia e scarpe, componevano il loro vestiario'. Non tutti i condannati erano incatenati a due a due; alcuni erano liberi, altri portavano al piede una grossa palla di cannone. Successivamente, nel 1848, vennero apportate modifiche al regolamento che disciplinava i lavori forzati nei bagni degli Stati sardi: in particolare i condannati venivano suddivisi in categorie a seconda della durata della pena e dal tipo di reato commesso. L'A. si sofferma poi sulla pena della 'berlina', che consisteva nel far passare il prigioniero in mezzo alle vie della citta' mentre veniva sottoposto al pubblico insulto e ludibrio. Massone si scaglia contro questa sanzione ritenendola inutile e dannosa perche' non faceva che accrescere l'astio del detenuto nei confronti della societa'. Si stabili' inoltre, nei nuovi regolamenti, una paga giornaliera per i prigionieri, liberi di utilizzare il compenso come preferivano, purche' lo usassero sempre per migliorare il vitto giornaliero. Alcuni lavoratori speciali, detti 'di grazia', erano totalmente liberi dai ferri e potevano uscire in citta' senza scorta. Praticamente anche qui si denota la divisione in addetti alla 'grande fatigue' (non pagati e addetti ai lavori peggiori) e alla 'petite fatigue' (retribuiti e addetti a lavori specializzati) da tempo in atto nei bagni francesi. Secondo Massone, la vita ai lavori forzati presso i bagni era preferibile rispetto a quella nel carcere a causa della vista del mare, dell'aria libera, del sole, e della possibilita' di stringere amicizia con i compagni. La prigione, invece, 'uccide il corpo, altera l'intelligenza e pone l'animo in uno stato di tale letargo, che neutralizza la facolta' di agire a seconda del proprio intimo volere'. In realta' i bagni penali furono quanto rimase nel momento in cui le galere vennero a perdere la loro funzione bellica e cominciarono a marcire nei porti. Scomparivano le galere ma rimanevano i galeotti. La pena della galera rimase sempre presente negli ordinamenti e i galeotti vennero quindi destinati ai molti lavori necessari alla gestione di una flotta militare e dei suoi porti. Gran parte della massa dei prigionieri era composta da frotte di poveracci, piu' che da criminali veri e propri, da vagabondi, pitocchi, eretici e contrabbandieri i quali, molte volte senza subire alcun processo, venivano d?ufficio inviati al bagno penale.
