        The House of Seven Gables A Romance

      Boston: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, 1851. First Edition, First Issue. Recently rebound in fine condition in 1/4 light brown calf and marbled paper covered board with a dark brown leather title label with gilt text on the spine and with gilt borders on the spine. A 12mo measuring 7 1/16" by 4 3/8" containing 344 pages of text with out the publisher catalog. The original, light yellow first and last free end pages are present. On the first free end page an early prior owner's name appears in ink together with the date of "April 14th 1851". The pages of the text are all bright, clean and free of tanning and free of any foxing. This is a first edition, first issue copy with the letters "t" and the "h" battered on the first and second lines of page 149. The prior owner's date of April 14th 1851 provides additional support to the fact that this is the first issue as the second printing was published in April 1851 and corrected the battered type on page 149. One of Hawthorne's most famous novels and considered a classic of early American literature. Hawthorne believed this to be his best work, even better than his more famous The Scarlet Letter. Hawthorne considered this title to be his best novel. A collectible first edition, first issue copy is quite uncommon. This copy is stunning! (BAL 7604; Bruccoli/Clark - p. 172)

        Artist and inventor of the telegraph, Samuel F.B. Morse makes a recommendation to architect Alexander Jackson Davis, who is designing Morse's Italianate style summer home

Horizontal folds, one at the base of Morse's signature; two faint vertical folds pass through signature, none materially affecting its appearance. Fine condition.In full, ""Will Mr. Davis be so good as to think of 2 or 3 loads of good tan, and have them drawn as soon as the roads will admit of it. Saml. F.B. Morse March 1. 1851.""""Mr. Davis"" was architect Alexander Jackson Davis (1803-1892). In 1847, Morse had bought an 180 acre estate in Poughkeepsie, New York, called Locust Grove. In 1850, he hired Davis to design a home, expanding a pre-existing cottage. Morse recalled the elegant villas that he had visited years earlier in the Italian countryside and he sketched towers, windows, and floor plans on scraps of paper to give to Davis. Morse worked with him, making recommendations, as can be seen in the note here offered. Construction of the Italianate style villa began in 1851 and was completed the following year. Locust Grove became Morse's summer home for the rest of his life. He and his family spent their winters in their Manhattan townhouse."

"Scholfield had visited the Trinity River diggings, and having found all existing maps of the area 'defective and erroneous' decided to prepare one of his own.

        Map of the City of New York 1851

      D.T. Valentine, 1851. unbound. Map. Lithograph. Image measures 16" x 20". This scarce and beautiful map of New York City was issued in the 1851 edition of Valentine's Manual of the Corporation of New York. Essentially divides Manhattan into two sections to fit on a single sheet. The lower map extends from the Battery to 60th Street while the upper map extends north from 60th street to Spuyten Dyvill Creek in what is today Inwood. Both maps identify streets, parks, squares, piers, ferry lines, forts, etc. City wards and fire districts are numbered and outlined in color. Lower Manhattan, which was far more populated than the northern parts at the time, reveals far more detail with blocks shaded in and important individual buildings identified. Blackwell's Island (Roosevelt Island), Ward's Island and Randel's Island are also identified. Central Park, which was not yet conceived, is missing. This edition of the map was lithographed by G. Hayward and issued in the 1851 edition of the "Manual of The Corporation of the City of New York." It is in good condition with minor browning at the folds. Minor offsetting. <br><br>David Thomas Valentine (1801-1869) served as the Deputy to the Clerk of the Common Council for thirty-seven years and began publishing the "Manual for the Corporation of the City of New York" in 1841. The Manuals were directories of extensive historical and contemporary records of New York that included facts about the City of New York, city history, city council information, and reported on the progress of public works such as Central Park. Popularly called Valentine's Manuals, the texts were richly illustrated with maps, lithographs, and engravings. This map provides a fascinating look at the rapid development of New York City.

        TREMENDOUS EXCITEMENT! SAMUEL WHITTAKER AND ROBERT McKENZIE RESCUED FROM THE AUTHORITIES, AND HUNG BY THE VIGILANCE COMMITTEE, ON SUNDAY AUGUST 24th AT 3 O'CLOCK P.M. IN THE PRESENCE OF FIFTEEN THOUSAND PEOPLE [caption title]

      San Francisco: Lith. & Publ. by Justh, Quirot & Co., 1851. 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'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'S PICTORIAL LETTER SHEETS 274 (later issue). CLIFFORD LETTER SHEET COLLECTION 283.

        RAE'S PHILADELPHIA PICTORIAL DIRECTORY & PANORAMIC ADVERTISER

      [Philadelphia]: Julio H. Rae, 1851. Oblong quarto. Original gold-printed black wrappers bound into contemporary cloth, neatly rebacked, gilt label on front cover. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. Provenance: John McAllister (book label). A remarkable city directory and business promotional, illustrating eight blocks of Chestnut Street in downtown Philadelphia in sixteen beautifully executed lithographs. Following in the long tradition of the city directory but taking it to new heights, publisher Julio H. Rae produced "the first truly visual directory" (Miles & Reese) of an American city. Each plate depicts a block or a portion of a block of Philadelphia's main commercial thoroughfare, between 2nd and 10th streets. Both sides of the block are pictured, and each plate is keyed to an accompanying text leaf carrying advertisements from the merchants depicted. Taller buildings are shown in their complete elevation on folding plates, with the grandest plate folding out vertically and horizontally and showing the State House. A note on the facade of the building reads: "Declaration of Independence signed in this room." While not every merchant on Chestnut Street subscribed to the work, leaving some buildings unadorned on the plates, Rae's work carries advertisements for all manner of businesses, from hatters, jewelers, tailors, and grocers, to hotels, druggists, daguerreotypists, and Welch's National Circus and Theatre. Rae intended to update his Chestnut Street directory each year, showing changes in the businesses, and announced a similar work covering Market Street from the Delaware River to Broad Street. Apparently he was too ambitious, and neither project came to fruition. Rae was not exaggerating, however, in his preface when he wrote that he "felt confident that he has hit upon a system not only novel and beautiful, but exceedingly useful, and one of which he believes to be entirely unique." This copy bears the ownership markings of noted Philadelphia collector John A. McAllister (1822-96), whose spectacles and mathematical instruments shop appears in the directory on the very first plate. A magnificent work, which heralded a new era in display advertising, and a nice association copy. MILES & REESE, AMERICA PICTURED TO THE LIFE 75.

        View of the Great Exhibition

      London: Published by Lloyd Brothers & Co. 22 Ludgate Hill, & Simpkin Marshall & Co. Stationers Hall Court, 1851. Hand coloured lithograph highlighted in gum arabic. Mounted on card as issued. In excellent condition with the exception of some discolouration in the margins. Image size: 11 x 14 3/4 inches. This wonderful image of classical statues, was included in Day & Son's rare folio of lithographs illustrating the wonders of the Great Exhibition. This is a lovely image from a rare suite of lithographs by Day & Son entitled Recollections of the Great Exhibition of 1851 , published in London in the same year. This remarkable text is comprised of twenty-five hand coloured lithographs illustrating the various rooms and exhibits of the Great Exhibition. The works are lithographed by Day & Son after images by John Absolon, W. Goodall, C. T. Dolby, H. C. Pidgeon, Michael, and Wilson. This wonderful image depicts a room of classical statues in the Great Exhibition. The Great Exhibition of 1851, although it was the first truly international event of its kind, was prompted by the success of the French Industrial Exposition of 1844. The idea was initially ignored by the British Government, but under the enthusiastic patronage of Prince Albert, plans for the exhibition went ahead. Albert was keen that the 'Exhibition of All Nations' should be self-financing: Parliament still remained unconvinced. A fund of 230,000 pounds was raised and a board of Commissioners set up. The declared aims of the exhibition were to celebrate human progress in the form of manufacture, invention and good design, and to promote cooperation between nations. The size of the exhibition space was fixed at 700,000 square feet, and the government was persuaded to treat the Crystal Palace as a bonded warehouse so that no import duties were payable on goods imported for the exhibition. As it happened, and despite government skepticism, the event was a huge success, both nationally and internationally, and received over 6,000,000 visitors. The exhibition ranged in scope from ornamental furniture and modern machinery to an elaborate tent from Tunis.

        War Between the United States and Mexico

      1851 - KENDALL, George W. and NEBEL, Carl. The War Between the United States and Mexico Illustrated, Embracing Pictorial Drawings of All the Principal Conflicts by Carl Nebelâ&#128;¦ with a Description of Each Battle by Geo. Wilkins Kendall. New York and Philadelphia: D. Appleton; George S. Appleton, 1851. Large folio (19 by 23-1/2 inches), contemporary marbled boards rebacked and recornered in morocco-gilt, original morocco-gilt front cover label. $32,000.First edition of one of the most important and impressive pictorial chronicles of the Mexican-American War, boasting 12 superb folio hand-finished full-color lithographic plates.Founder of the New Orleans Picayune and America's first war correspondent, George Kendall "filed many reportsâ&#128;¦ of combat during the Mexican-American War. Many newspapers reprinted Kendall's reports and Americans knew him to be [an] ardent annexationist and partisan supporter of the United Statesâ&#128;¦ After the war Kendall commissioned Carl Nebel, a noted German-born artist and resident of Mexico, to provide 12 hand-colored lithographs that would accompany Kendall's 52 pages of battle descriptionsâ&#128;¦ Nebel's approach was in contrast to most print-makers or illustrators of his dayâ&#128;¦ [He] portrayed soldiers, military units and the terrain realistically, eschewing much (but not all) of the standard 19th century heroic and romantic styles. Other contemporary prints of battles of the Mexican-American War were rendered by illustrators who had not been in Mexico and took liberties with all aspects of what they drew. Kendall provided officers' after-action reports to Nebel, who visited the site of the battle a few months after the event and then painted the scene" (Dawson, Louisiana History 38:2, 236, 237).While the work was published in New York and Philadelphia, the lithographs were produced in Paris. Kendall and Nebel judged only Parisian lithographers qualified to produce the images, and both men spent some time in Europe overseeing the production, for which they shared costs (three shillings per print). They employed the firm of innovative lithographer Rose-Joseph Lemercier; he "developed a number of new processes, including a method of obtaining delicate shadings by spreading powdered crayon on a stone that had been slightly warmedâ&#128;¦ Looking at the prints from Kendall's volume today, one is struck by the soft ink washes and delicate tonal areas that underlie the watercolor. Highlights seem to have been either reserved with a waxen substanceâ&#128;¦ or carefully scraped into the surface of the stone to yield understated areas of support for the hand coloring" (Sandweiss et al., Eyewitness to War, 36). The prints, three years in the making, "received good press notices even before they left Europe. The Paris correspondent for the Herald referred to the set as 'one of the most superb works of art ever achieved in Paris.' He reported that the plates were 'colored in the highest style of art,' and that they were so carefully done that the best artists of London, Paris and Brussels were able to finish only one per day. 'The fidelity of the landscapes, and the truthfulness of every point introduced into the pictures, cannot but be at once acknowledged and appreciated by the best connoisseur'" (Tyler, Southwestern Historical Quarterly 77:1, 19). "The very best American battle scenes in existence" (Bennett, 65). Because many copies have been broken for the framing of plates, the complete work is today quite scarce. With 12 plates: 1)The Battle of Palo Alto; 2)The Capture of Monterey; 3)The Battle of Buena Vista; 4)The Bombardment of Vera Cruz; 5)Battle of Cerro Gordo; 6)The Assault at Contreras; 7)The Battle at Churubusco; 8) and 9)Battle of Molino del Rey; 10 and 11)The Storming of Chapultepec; 12)General Scott's Entrance into Mexico.

        [MANUSCRIPT IN GERMAN OF KOSSUTH'S APPEAL FOR HUNGARIAN FREEDOM, TITLED "AN DAS FREIE VOLK DER VEREINIGTEN-NORD- AMERIKANISCHEN STAATEN," PREPARED BY LADISLAUS UGHAZI, A HUNGARIAN EXILE LIVING IN NEW-BUDA, IOWA]

      [New-Buda, Iowa], 1851. Folio. Loose sheets. Some dust soiling. Overall good. An eloquent and impassioned appeal for Hungarian freedom from centuries of Austrian tyranny, here prepared by the leader of a community of Hungarian exiles living in Iowa. In a paragraph on the last page, Kossuth appoints Ughazi his representative to the United States. The manuscript seems to have been aimed at garnering American support for the Hungarian cause soon after the failures of the revolution of 1848 and subsequent short-lived Hungarian republic led by Kossuth. New-Buda was the location of an early Hungarian settlement in Iowa. An important work of a leading Hungarian immigrant.

        LIFE IN SAN FRANCISCO. THE KING'S CAMPAIGN OR REMOVAL OF THE DEPOSITES COMPOSED & SUNG BY FRANK BALL [caption title]

      [San Francisco], 1851. Old folds, some light old staining in the lower left. Minor edgewear. Very good. A large, rare California pictorial letter sheet with satirical political content, unknown to Baird. The engraved illustration in the upper quarter of the sheet shows a procession of men dressed in suits and top hats, or dressed as knights or warriors, and most of them carry a weapon of some sort. In the center a blindfolded donkey draws a small cart in which a man is standing. A banner reading "C.H. Treasurer" is held aloft by one of the group, and another man carries a bag over his shoulder labeled $2,000. The image is meant to satirize the reaction of San Francisco Customs Collector Thomas Butler King who, when the customs house was burned in the San Francisco fire of 1851 organized his employees to remove the contents and march it to a safe place, their procession appearing similar to that of the illustration on this sheet. As noted, this pictorial letter sheet is not listed in Baird, though the illustration bears similarities to Baird 134 and 341. Below the scene is a ten-stanza poem mocking King, political patronage, and the way he conducted himself during the fire. Such overt political satire on a California pictorial letter sheet is rather uncommon, and this is the first example of this sheet that we have owned. It is not listed in Reilly's catalogue of American political prints in the Library of Congress. Not listed in Baird, the only other copy that we can locate was in the noted Clifford collection. Rare.

Orange paper covers, folded world map, in. mustard Chitsu folding case, ivory clasps, folds down to. 13.5 x 18.5 cm., opens up to 52.5 x 37 cm, woodblock printed. in color, very good, minor dusty surface nice copy. R A R E. A FASCINATING MID 19TH CENTURY COLOR WORLD MAP A lovely world map, hand printed in color by woodblocks on hand-made paper, professionally rebacked. This map shows an oval Mercator projection of the world, with the American continent to the right, Europe and Africa to the left and Asia in the center. * This work was likely copied from some map the Dutch brought to Japan via Nagasaki and shared with Rangaku-sha, or Japanese who studied Dutch learning. The work is fairly accurate for Japanese maps, which lagged behind European cartography by as much as a century at some times. * Nicely executed, with a very large number of place names in Katakana [Japanese alphabet used for foreign words] as well as Kanji [Chinese-Japanese characters] for the names of oceans, and proper places in Japan, Korea & China. Folded three times vertically and once horizontally. Suitable for framing and library display. Japanese world maps printed by woodblocks are always RARE and unusual. ***** BIBLIOGRAPHY: T. Oda et al.: THE WORLD IN JAPANESE MAPS UNTIL THE MID-19TH CENTURY, #114, p.242 & 282. The example in Oda shows an additional text above the map. Our copy being a likely earlier version does not have that text, but is identical in all other ways, including the exact same coloring. Because it is not listed in any other usual reference sources, one can assume that this was fairly rare and an uncommon map. * H. Cortazzi: ISLES OF GOLD ANTIQUE MAPS OF JAPAN. * L.

        KAWANAKAJIMA KASSEN SONAYE WO TATENAOSU DZU: ILLUSTRATION OFTHE RALLY OF THE TRO

      [Tokyo 1851-2, Tsujioka-ya. Oban triptych, color woodblock. printed 3 panels, very crisp, clean, some small old worming. mended, vegetal colors, subtle, strong image, 29 x 14 inches. 75 x 34.5 cm., signed Ichiryusai Kuniyoshi. R A R E. A GRAND VIEW OF TAKEDA SHINGEN REVIEWING HIS TROOPS An excellent large panel print, shows Takeda Shingen seated at the far left, while his Kuge & vassals surround him, the Samurai nearby, with several horse-mounted, with infantry foot-soldiers to the far right, all in full battle armour. A host of Hata banners name the various divisions. A forward scout or spy is on his knees giving a report to Takeda,while pointing to a other Great warrior who is also on his knees with one fist on the ground in a symbolic gesture of submis- sion & respect to his master, while looking to his left, as do the majority of the others, clearly indicating something important is happening in that direction. An early evening scene, with a grey sky. Many of the more important Hatamoto have been pointed out by Kuniyoshi with small red and yellow cartouches bearing their names. This invaluable confirmation has become the basis for clan and family history in terms of who supported who, and who was present at what battle. These prints render a valuable and tangible service to families & historians alike. Honor, loyalty & life have depended on the historical background of this nature throughout Japan's long military history. A wide variety of weapons are carried by the soldiers, most carry a Naginada/ Nagayari the long lance for first enemy encounters with relative safety...An excit- ing scene, with new and vital information coming in, as the troops strain to be advised of the latest enemy intelligence from the field. Listed in Robinson WARRIOR PRINTS p.180, no. T258. This print was not located in any institution, but only held by a private collector, and is considered a choice & rare piece. Most museums and libraries have not focused on the historical military battle scenes, which in the last ten years have been popular among private collectors & are grad- ually becoming very scarce. With a few old worm holes mended and touched up. Superbly executed with evidence of his being influenced with Western perspective and composition renders this one of his more fascinating art works.

        4 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Berlin, 1851-1866. Zus. 9 S., Gr.-8°. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Poggendorff, Schrötter, Physik, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

      New York: American Tract Society. Very Good with no dust jacket. N.D.. Hardcover. No date, but the American Tract Society published the Scripture Biographiesin Choctaw in 1851 and the inscription is dated 1851. Three separately paginated books bound in one volume, with Vol. I on spine. Brown decorated stamped boards with gilt on spine. Sunning on spine and edges with half inch piece missing at spine head and smaller piece missing at tail. Rubbed corners and ink coloring in joints. Binding tight. Offsetting of inscription ink on front endpapers. Inscription on first free endpaper reads "Mr. Gallaudet's from Rev. Mr. (? ) Wright and lady, by C. Byington New York, Dec. 29, 1851." Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet, an American missionary known for his work with the deaf, died in September, 1851, and this may have been from his library. Gallaudet wrote these scripture biographies for children and they were translated into many foreign and Native American languages. Cyrus Byington was a missionary and Choctaw linguist who developed a written system for the language and was associated with Reverend Wright. Byington is not credited, but this is probably his translation work. Very few copies of any of the three books are found on OCLC/Worldcat, with three copies each of The History of Abraham and the History of Joseph found. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .

        Catalogus plantarum horti botanici Medicocirurgicae Scholae Olisponensis anno MDCCCLII.

      Lisbon, Typografia Nacional, 1851. - xxvi pp., (1 l.), 258 pp. 8°, contemporary straight-grain quarter purple morocco over marbled boards (slight wear to corners), flat spine with gilt fillets and lettering (faded), green endleaves, text-block edges sprinkled green. In fine condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this list of some 1,863 plants in the botanical garden at the Escola Medico-Cirurgica of Lisbon, arranged by genus and species according to Decandolle's classification. The authors are careful to note in which part of Europe, India, the Americas, Asia or Africa the plants were originally found and whether they are annual, perennial, tree, vine, etc.The Escola was established at the instigation of an army physician in 1825 (as one of the Regia Escolas de Cirurgia), to alleviate the dearth of trained physicians in Portugal. At first those educated at the Escolas were allowed to practice only where no university-trained physicians, or too few, were available. In the 1830s and the decades following, reforms made training at the Escolas the equivalent of university training.One of the required courses at the Escolas was botany, hence the existence of the botanical garden and of this catalogue. Gomes and Ferreira da Silva Beirão both received degrees from Coimbra and both taught at the Escola Medico-Cirurgica in Lisbon. Gomes was a prolific author of other medical works (see Lisbon, Faculdade de Medicina, @Catálogo da collecção portuguesas I, 195-200).---- Innocêncio I, 363-4; II, 12; X, 62-3: calling for only xxv, 258 pp. Not in Lisbon, Faculdade de Medicina, @Catálogo da collecção portuguesa.

        The "America" Winning the Match at Cowes for the [Club Cup] ... open to Yachts of all Classes, and Nations from the original sketch taken [on] the spo[t b]y Oswald W. Brierj[ey]

      London: Ackermann & Co, 1851. Tinted lithograph drawn on stone by Dutton after Brierley, printed by Day & Son. Small expert repairs. The great yacht whose humiliating defeat of all British rivals lead to the establishment of the greatest of all yachting challenge cup races: the "America's Cup". Owned by Commodore John C. Stevens and five other members of the New York Yacht Club, the America was built in New York to the revolutionary design of George Steers. Launched in May 1851, in June of the same year she sailed to challenge the English yachting establishment. After having two challenges for races turned down, Commodore Stevens entered America in the Royal Yacht Squadron Regatta and under the brilliant captainship of Richard Brown (a highly skilled member of the Sandy Hook Pilots) she beat the best of the British yachts "with great ease" (India House Collection, p.62). The syndicate returned to New York with their prize: a trophy that was to become the America's Cup. The America herself was sold to John, Lord de Blaquiere on 1st September 1851, and four days later the present image was published. In July 1857, the original owners of the America donated their prize through a Deed of Gift to the New York Yacht Club: the deed stipulated that the cup was to be held in trust as a 'challenge' trophy to promote friendly competition. "Stung by this blow to contemporary perceptions of invincible British sea power, a succession of British syndicates attempted to win back the cup, but the New York Yacht Club remained unbeaten for 25 challenges over 113 years, the longest winning streak in the history of sport. Matches were held in the vicinity of New York City from 1870 to 1920, ... From 1930 to 1983, the races were sailed off Newport, Rhode Island for the rest of the NYYCs reign." (Wikipedia). Cf. A Descriptive Catalogue of the Marine Collection to be found at India House (New York: 1935) item number 252 (includes a lengthy note on the subsequent history of the America ).

Backed on artist's board, some creasing and toning, a few light stains and spots, a few small repairs to verso. Very good. The Streeter copy of the "first map of what is now Oregon to be lithographed west of the Rockies" - Streeter sale. Streeter's handwritten notes can be seen on the front of the map near the imprint. Streeter also described the map as "one of the first, if not the first to show the new town of Portland, the new settlements on the Umpqua, and the road to California up the Willamette Valley." "Scholfield had visited the Trinity River diggings, and having found all existing maps of the area 'defective and erroneous' decided to prepare one of his own. For the first time the explorations of the gold seekers in the northern region are portrayed, and the Trinity is correctly shown flowing into the Klamath River instead of into the ocean. The Sierra diggings are not shown in detail, but a few place names here first appear. The coast from San Francisco to the mouth of the Columbia is based on the recently completed U.S. Coast Survey charts" - Wheat.

        3 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Heidelberg u. Breslau, 1851-1864. Zus. 7 S., 8°. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - „[...] Meine Uebersiedelung nach Breslau, und außerdem noch eine längere Abwesenheit von dort hat mich leider verhindert, Ew. Wohlgeboren die gewünschten mich betreffenden Personalnotizen für den academischen Almanach bis zu dem von Ihnen gesetzten Termin einzusenden [...]“. - Bunsen entwickelte zusammen mit Gustav Robert Kirchhoff die Spektralanalyse, mit deren Hilfe chemische Elemente hochspezifisch nachgewiesen werden können. Er perfektionierte den nach ihm benannten Bunsenbrenner und erfand das Bunsenelement und das Bunsen-Fotometer. --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Bunsen, Schrötter, Chemie, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        United States Frigate St Lawrence 50 Guns Sailing off Osborne, Isle of Wight

      London: Ackermann & Co, 1851. Hand-coloured lithograph by Dutton, printed by Day & Son. Small expert repairs. Sheet size: 21 1/4 x 27 2/8 inches. Beautiful portrait of United States Frigate "St. Lawrence" saluting off Osbourne, Isle of Wight, summer residence of Queen Victoria. The St. Lawrence was laid out in the 1820s by the Norfolk Navy Yard, but she remained uncompleted on the ways until work on her, interrupted by a shortage of funds, was resumed during the Mexican War and she was finally launched in late 1847 or early in 1848. She bore 8 VIII-inch guns and 42 32 pounders. A beautiful sailing ship, she represents an ideal of the pre-steamship days, superbly rendered by Dutton, who was probably the best printmaker of marine subjects during this period. Thomas Goldsworth Dutton (d. 1891) worked for Day & Haghe and Day & Son, producing refined lithographs of the great British ships of the period, as well as visiting battleships of other nations, as here. With Commander Joshua Sands in command, the St .Lawrence departed New York on the 20th February 1851, partially on a good-will visit but also carrying to England the exhibits from the United States for the Great Exhibition in London, the first modern world's fair which opened on 1st May, 1851. At some point before May 5th (the date this print was published) she evidently visited the Isle of Wight, where as a diplomatic courtesy she fired a salute to Queen Victoria. Her return voyage was made via Lisbon and she arrived back in New York on 11 August, 1851. Cf. A Descriptive Catalogue of the Marine Collection to be found at India House (New York: 1935) item number 363.
