        Hartford Evening Journal: (Bound newspapers) August, 1st, 1851 - February 26th, 1857 (Vol. 1, No. 131 - Vol. 1 308) (Gideon Welles's personal copy, ASMD)

      Hartford Evening Journal, 1851-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Acceptable. Large folio newspaper. Contemporary binding. Spine leather lost. Boards nearly detached. Internally, some old, faint damp stains, mostly to margins; but the paper is generally very clean, unmarked, and in good condition. Many of the issues boldly promote the Fremont 1856 Presidential ticket. Attention is given to the issue of Kansas in the editorials. Numerous ads and local news throughout. Gideon Welles was a noted politician and journalist from Glastonbury, Connecticut. Welles wrote much of the editorial material for the Hartford Evening Journal. He joined the Hartford Evening News to promote his political (anti-slavery) views and the position of the nascent Republican Party. According to the front end page, this was his personal, archival copy (though I cannot definitively state this). There is a later accompanying letter from an unknown source concerning Welles' ownership. Most of Welles other papers are held by the Connecticut Historical Society. President Lincoln appointed Welles to his cabinet as Secretary of the Navy in 1860. Welles continued in this position through the Civil War and resigned in 1869. Please feel free to inquire further. This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US.

      Wien, 1851-1855. Zus. 5 S., 4°. „Seit 1848 Generalmajor und erster Generaladjutant des Kaisers, leitete er 1850-59 die Militärische Zentralkanzlei und wurde 1859 Oberststallmeister und Kapitän der Garde-Gendarmerie, 1864 General der Kavallerie“ (DBE). „Graf Grünne war ein Günstling von Erzherzogin Sophie gewesen, mit starken Einfluss auf den jungen Franz Joseph. Die ungebrochene Anerkennung Grünnes durch das Erzhaus zeigte sich unter anderem darin, dass sowohl Kaiser Franz Joseph I. als auch Kronprinz Rudolf in Begleitung seiner Gemahlin, Stephanie, dem Erkrankten jeweils einen Hausbesuch abstatteten“ (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u.

        Manuscripts for general and applied sciences and engineering lectures

      Manuscripts. 1851 - Manuscripts for general and applied sciences and engineering lectures delivered by B. Howard Rand (1827-1883) at the Franklin Institute, 1851-1853. During this time Rand [B(enjamin) Howard Rand, 1 Oct 1827 (Philadelphia) -14 Feb 1883] was a professor of chemistry at the Franklin Institute (1850-1853). [Bound in leather-backed boards with boards detached.] Rand evidently achieved some stature as he was the first subject chosen by Thomas Eakins for what would be his famous series of portraits of Philadelphia physicians.(In April 2007, the portrait of Rand was purchased by Alice L. Walton for an estimated US$20 million, to be housed at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art2. )**"Rand was a popular teacher because he emphasized the applied rather than the theoretic applications of chemistry in the practice of medicine. He also had a lasting influence on the medical students because of his lectures on the social and professional responsibilities that the students would assume when they became physicians."--Stefan Schatzkil, "Portrait of Benjamin Howard Rand", Journal of Roentgenology, July 2010, volume 195/2.**10x8.5 inches, approximately 245 pages, running approximately 45,000 words. Includes lectures on "Improved Heating and Ventilation" (48 pages), "Geology" (44 pages); "On the Action of Running Water", (15 pages); "Warming", 40 pages); "Ventilation" (48 pages); "Physical Manual", (50 pages). All are bound together, written on different stock, written seemingly by slightly varying hands from time to time, and brought together in a leather-backed paper covered board volume. The pages are roughly cut, and the handwriting fast and untidy. The leather binding with marbled boards are quite worn, with the covers detached, though the rest of the book is intact and pretty sturdy. The text problems are limited to the first written page, which is missing the bottom of the page, roughly torn. Provenance: given by Dr. W.H. Greene to the Franklin Institute Library (Philadelphia), 1895, where it stayed until 1986 when the library was generally disbanded. Dr. W.H. Greene was the translator of Elements of Modern Chemistry, Philadelphia, 1880; referenced in Henry Carrington Bolton's A Select Bibliography of Chemistry, 1492-1892/ Rand's previous appointments: Graduate of Jefferson Medical College (Philadelphia,1848), beginning his studies in 1843 with Dr. Robert M. Huston Clinical Assistant to Dr. Thomas Mutter and Dr. Joseph Pancost, 1846-1848 Prof Chemistry, Franklin Institute, 1850-1855 And subsequently: Prof Chemistry, Philadelphia Medical College, 1853-4 Philadelphia Academy of Natural Science, Secretary, 1853-1864 Prof chemistry, Jefferson Medical College, 1864-1877 Fellow of the Philadelphia College of Physicians 1853; fellow of the American Philosophical Society 1868; and, besides membership in other societies, was connected with the American medical association Author: An Outline of Medical Chemistry (1855); Elements of Medical Chemistry (1863) It is an interesting collection of thinking on different subjects, and a peep into the life of the Franklin Institute and scientific dialog in Philadelphia in the mid-19th century.**Notes: 1. "The career of Thomas C. Eakins (1844–1916) has been explored in earlier articles in this series. There are several possible explanations why Eakins chose Rand for the first of the many portraits of Philadelphia physicians that he would complete during the following 30 years. The two probably became first acquainted while Eakins was a student at Philadelphia's Central High School, where Rand, also an alumnus of Central High, taught from 1859 to 1864, together with other responsibilities noted previously. Rand and Eakins shared a mutual interest and participation in the sport of rowing, the subject of some of Eakins' early and most renowned paintings. Rand was, for a time, president of the Philadelphia Undine Barge Club, where Eakins may have been a member. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter signed, to fellow writer G[ilbert]. A'Beckett

      1851. Two pages (first and third panels of a folded leaf), addressed to "Dear A'Beckett". [London:] "Devonshire Terrace | Monday Tenth February 1851." Dickens wrote this letter to the English humorist, journalist and playwright Gilbert A'Beckett, just before departing, later that same evening, for a brief trip to Paris (within a couple of days he was writing letters from the Hôtel Wagram there). His companion on the trip was caricaturist and illustrator John Leech, who like A'Becket was a major force of the comic journal Punch. Their main reason for the trip was to absorb the sights and sounds and smells of the early-morning Cattle Market in Poissy and the Abattoir in Montmartre -- which in an upcoming Household Words piece (March 8th), Dickens would contrast with Smithfield and the London slaughter-houses. The text of the letter reads:~Your note of Saturday reaching me when I was striving with a violently agitated cross-sea of correspondence, I unfortunately mislaid it. I have no doubt it will reappear triumphantly, in a few months; but I am not certain that I have accurately remembered in the List, what places you want. As I am going to Paris for five days, and have in the meanwhile placed my list in the fists of Forster, will you write him one line, and relieve me from the painful possibility of any short-coming in respect to your wish. I think I am right, but I am not sure.~Faithfully yours always~[signed]Charles Dickens~The letter is in fine condition. Per the Pilgrim Edition of Dickens's Letters Vol. 6, CD wrote many letters on that day of departure -- but this one is not cited among them.

In der Nähe der im oberen Zillertal gelegenen Ortschaft Schlitters liegt ein zerklüfteter und kaum bewachsener Hügel mit einer Kapelle, der sagenumwobene, im Volksmund genannte Jaudenstein. Bei dem Zeichner dieses Blattes wird es sich um einen Künstler handeln, der in der Tradition der romantischen Landschaftsmalerei steht. Der abwechselnd weiche und harte Strich sowie die Komposition – der Landschaftsausschnitt in Nahsicht – zeigen eine sichere und lebendige Handhabung der Technik.

THE FIRST CHROMOLITHOGRAPH ILLUSTRATIONS TO APPEAR IN AN AMERICAN BOOK, as well as the first time Miller's chromolithographs were published in a book. "The colored lithographs were the first to appear in an American book. Because of this, the angling collector must compete not only with Americana collectors, but those who collect early color work.very scarce" (Bruns). "Most of the letters are entitled: 'Letters from the sporting grounds.' Three letters of October 3 in the Courier were not reprinted in the Spirit. They are critical of the landlords of Lake Pleasant. Webber complains that local guides saved the best fishing for a few favored gentleman sportsmen, and duped the rest of the tourists" (Henderson, p. 250). Howes W-196 'aa.' Henderson, pp. 249-250.

        NEW VARIETIES OF GOLD AND SILVER COINS, COUNTERFEIT COINS, AND BULLION; WITH MINT VALUES

      New York, 1851. Original gilt cloth. Slight repair at head of spine. Very minor scattered foxing. Bright and very good. Second edition, "rearranged, with numerous additions," after the first Philadelphia edition of the previous year. The authors were the official assayers for the Philadelphia Mint at the time of this work's publication, and the book was intended as a guide for those unfamiliar with recent advances in coinage and assaying. The text includes much data regarding the recent strikes in California, and devotes an entire chapter to the analysis of the quality of ore coming from California. The black and white plates depict various gold coins produced in the United States, including California bullion struck by private firms. There is also a discussion of the coinage of various countries of the world, including the TONG TSIEN of China, a "trashy coin...extremely convenient for alms-giving, a single piece being the usual quietus for a beggar."

Born in 1816 in the small town of Tizayuca in what is now the state of Hidalgo, Rodriguez Galvan is widely credited with being the initiator of the Romantic movement in Mexico. He wrote novels, poetry, plays, and was the editor of several periodicals, most especially Calendario de las Señoritas Mexicanas and Año Nuevo, El Recreo de las Familias. He died of yellow fever in Havana in 1842 at the age of 27 while en route to South America on a diplomatic mission. A few of the poems in vol. I were penned in => Havana before his death. These volumes offer his "Composiciones líricas originales" in vol. I and "Composiciones dramáticas originales" in vol. II. The frontispiece is a fine lithographic portrait of Don Ignacio, in Romantic style of course; there is a liberal use of handsome tailpieces. The whole was compiled and edited by the author's brother Antonio. => This first edition is uncommon in our experience as dealers in Mexicana. Provenance: Masonic stamp, "Porfirio del Rio" on title-page; inscription to fly-leaf of A. Quijano, 1916. Handsome contemporary quarter red morocco with red mottled paper sides, boards rubbed; spine exuberantly tooled in gilt, bright. Foxing and spotting variously; provenance indications as above.

        Regulations for the Uniform & Dress of the Army of the United States June 1851 From the original text and drawings in the War Department

      Philadelphia: William H. Horstmann & Sons, 1851. Folio. (14 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches). 25 lithographic plates by P.S. Duval after G.C. Humphries (5 printed in colours, 6 hand-coloured). (Occasional small chips to margins of plates and first few leaves of text). Original grey paper-covered limp boards, blue/grey title label on upper cover, rebacked with green cloth. (Extremities worn, corners rounded) Modern cloth box with leather label. In a modern clamshell box. First edition of this rare colour-plate book recording the uniform and dress of the mid-19th century United States Army This work was published by William H. Hortsmann and Sons, "military furnishers" of Philadelphia: established in 1815, they were the country's leading military outfitters throughout the nineteenth century and well into the twentieth. The plates, drawn by G.C. Humphries, were presumably used by Hortsmann, in conjunction with the text, to explain to customers what they were entitled to wear; the official nature of the work being emphasized by the facsimile endorsments on each plate by the Adjutant General. The attractive plates are ably executed in lithography by P.S. Duval, one of the leading lithographic printers of the time. They consist of five chromolithographic images showing 19 full-length views of various ranks and regiments within the US Army; followed by 16 plates of details of uniforms (4 partially or completely hand-coloured); 2 plates of swords; and ending with coloured plates of "horse furniture." The text reprints the relevant regulations concerning the dress-code for officers and enlisted men, including members of the topographical engineers, dragoons, and cadets. Not in Bennett or McGrath; Sabin 68957 (an apparent variant, with all 25 plates coloured).
