Thomas, Cowperthwait and Co.
We are privileged to offer this map of Arkansas, issued as part of S. Augustus Mitchell's New Universal Atlas of 1851. Mitchell, one of America's premier mapmakers, published this atlas from 1846-1849. In 1850, Thomas, Cowperthwait and Co. purchased the copyright for this atlas. He enlarged the atlas to include more maps and also added the new features of a chromolithographed title page and contents page. The lithographed maps issued by Cowperthwait and Co. are what we consider the finest maps produced in this era of mapmaking. One of the reasons that these maps by Cowperthwait are exceptionally difficult to find is because of their short period of publication from 1850-1854. The copyrights on some of these maps show Mitchell or Cowperthwait's name.

(COLT, Samuel (1814-1862))
Boston: White & Potter, 1851. 8vo. (9 x 5 1/2 inches). [4], 327pp. [With:] Autograph manuscript signed by Colt's attorney Charles L.

Contemporary half black morocco and period marbled paper covered boards, spine with semi-raised bands in five compartments, tooled in gilt on each band, lettered in the second compartment. Expert repair to the front joint. Provenance: Maj. Gen. Winfield Scott (black morocco gilt presentation label on the upper cover); Charles Leonard Frost Robinson (armorial bookplate) Presentation copy of Colt's successful patent defense of his revolver: a fine association between the 19th century's most influential gunmaker and Winfield Scott, the Commanding General of the United States Army. The case presented here is Colt's historic patent infringement lawsuit against the Massachusetts Arms Company (the precursor to Smith & Wesson), which from 1850 had produced about 800 revolvers and thus threatened Colt's patent on all revolver production. Colt emerged victorious from this and other patent cases which he zealosly pursued until his revolver patent expired in 1857. Laid into this presentation copy of the transcript of the trial is a manuscript by Colt's attorney Charles L. Woodbury ordering 25 presentation copies on behalf of Colt, ordering them from a Mr. Roberts (perhaps Robert Roberts, bookseller of Boston). The list of names is a who's who of mid-19th century American politics and judiciary, including Preside … [Click Below for Full Description]

1851/1867 1851 - 29 lines on 3 sides of folded 8vo sheet; laid down on to card alongside a 7pp unopened pamphlet in Arabic, with 2 engraved images laid down on verso. WITH: ALEXANDRA ORPHANAGE FOR INFANTS. Programme of the Ceremony of Laying the Foundation Stone of the New Buildings at Hornsey Rise. [1867] 3pp. Tipped on to card with an accomplished pencil & wash drawing on verso of the Orphan Working School, Haverstock Hill. Joseph Soul, 1805-1881, dedicated his life to bettering the plight of orphaned children in London and to the ongoing fight for the abolition of slavery. In 1851, Soul was secretary at the Orphan Working School. Established in 1758 with a building in Hoxton, the School moved to a newly constructed building on Haverstock Hill, Hampstead, in 1847. The new school, illustrated here in a skillfully executed drawing, housed 160 children. In 1850, Queen Victoria became the charity's patron and donor, giving two hundred and fifty guineas to the School allowing her to nominate, for the duration of her lifetime, one inmate for the School. Cobden?s letter is in response to a request from Soul that orphans from his school be allowed to visit the Great Exhibition. Cobden, an M.P. and Commissioner for the Great Exhibition replies with the affection of a friend and hope for a positive outcome. ?Speaking only as an individual, & not as a Royal Commissioner, I am of opinion that there is a chance for charity children, orphans &c. to be admitted to the Exhibition towards its close - But there is no chance of any such plan being authorised? until after the public has … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fully bound in bonded leather gilt, etc. Mint in slip-case. Edition limited to 450 numbered copies. Superb colour illustrations of classic salmon flies from the period of Blacker and Jones, including the beautiful "Fairy Fly" feature in this delightful and most sought after collector's book. Parson Newland writes: ".All that I have ever contemplated in writing this book, is to give my readers some idea of a fisherman's life . Many a green bank have I trodden since those days - many a rapid and many a pool have I thrown my fly over; but there is no 'fisherman's home' like the old low-browed room at Belleek, and no river in the whole world like my first love - the Erne." Originally published in 1851 this is one of the scarcest and most desirable of the 19th Century Irish fishing books. This edition has a very well researched new introduction by Kevin McKenna. .
