      Washington, 1852. Folding charts, duotone plates. 48 pp. plus charts. Guthorn says, “Ringgold had been introduced to the San Francisco area while serving with the Wilkes Expedition...

Ringgold carried out the survey in 1849 and 1850 at the request of many enterprising citizens.” This is the fifth edition of this important work. It features 12 views on 8 plates and 6 folding charts. See Sabin 71425. Howes R-303. Guthorn p. 195.

It has long been forgotten, and its records appear to have faded from history.” Inscribed in several places, “J.R.(?) Breck, ship Moonlight.” The Moonlight was a Waldoborough-built clipper ship engaged in the California trade in the late 1850s. See “Greyhounds,” p. 513, and various listings in Fairburn.

        REPORT OF THE TRIAL OF CASTNER HANWAY FOR TREASON, IN THE RESISTANCE OF THE EXECUTION OF THE FUGITIVE SLAVE LAW OF SEPTEMBER, 1850. BEFORE JUDGES GRIER AND KANE. . . TO WHICH IS ADDED AN APPENDIX, CONTAINING THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES ON THE SUBJECT OF FUGITIVES FROM LABOR, THE CHARGES OF JUDGE KANE TO THE GRAND JURIES IN RELATION THERETO, AND A STATEMENT OF THE POINTS OF LAW DECIDED BY THE COURT DURING THE TRIAL. . . FROM THE NOTES OF ARTHUR CANNON AND SAMUEL B. DALRYMPLE, PHONOGRAPHIC REPORTERS APPOINTED BY THE COURT FOR THIS CASE

      Philadelphia: King & Baird, 1852. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 275 pp. Contemporary three-quarter straight-grain morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt, original printed front wrapper bound in. Later pencil notes on endpaper facing front wrapper. Binding mildly scuffed and rubbed, corners worn, front wrapper toned and lightly worn, dampstain in upper margin of rear 25 leaves. A very good copy, with contents generally clean and bright. On September 11, 1851, one year after the passage of the Fugitive Slave Act, Maryland slaveowner Charles Gorusch and a posse including his son and a U.S. Marshal tracked a group of escaped slaves to the farm of black antislavery activist William Parker near Christiana, Pennsylvania. Parker and fellow local blacks formed an armed defense of the refugees, and by the end of a skirmish that ensued, Gorusch lay dead, with his son severely wounded and their companions driven off. Southerners demanded "justice" and evidence that the federal government would enforce the widely reviled Fugitive Slave Law. At the insistence of President Millard Fillmore, federal authorities investigated the "Christiana Incident" and, on charges of high treason, indicted Parker, his cohorts, and several white Quakers who had come to the scene to support their black neighbors. Castner Hanway was among the whites who had arrived at the Williams farm, refused to be deputized by Gorusch's party, and attempted to convince the would-be slavecatchers to turn away. He was erroneously identified as the leader of the escaped slaves' defenders and became the first of 41 men slated for prosecution. With a defense led by Thaddeus Stevens, Hanway was acquitted, and charges on the remaining 40 men were dropped. & & Proslavery Southerners were enraged, and Frederick Douglass pointed to Christiana when he wrote in his AUTOBIOGRAPHY, "the thing which more than all else destroyed the fugitive slave law was the resistance made to it by the fugitives themselves" (Douglass sheltered Williams and two of his companions at his home in New York following the incident and helped them escape to safety in Canada). & & The present report is historic not only in the subject that it covers, but in the extraordinarily accurate and comprehensive record of the trial that it kept, via two specially trained "phonographic reporters." Finkelman writes in SLAVERY IN THE COURTROOM, "The book thus contains as complete a record as possible of any trial in the nineteenth century. Besides providing legal arguments, it contains the testimony, examinations and cross-examinations, discussions between bar and bench, and even the sarcastic and angry banter that is inevitable in a trial as highly charged as this one was" (p. 100).

The most beautiful American work on fruits produced in the 19th century, illustrated with ninety-six beautiful chromolithographed plates by the firm of William Sharp of Boston. Hovey was a nurseryman of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a leading writer on horticultural topics. The book was originally issued in parts, from 1847 to 1856, and is considered complete in two volumes with ninety-six plates. The ninety- six varieties of fruit described include fifty-three pears, twenty apples, seven cherries, seven peaches, six plums, and three strawberries. Hovey describes the work in terms of national prestige: "There is a national pride, too, which I feel in the publication of a work like this; and that is, that the delicious fruits which have been produced in our own country, many of them surpassed by none of foreign growth.will be here beautifully depicted." Daniel McGrath states: "In 1852, there was published simultaneously in Boston and New York the first use of chromolithography in an American book. In Hovey's THE FRUITS OF AMERICA there are 96 plates that in gentle gradations of tone put our chromolithographers in the same class with those of England." OAK SPRING POMONA 61. McGRATH, p.112. BENNETT, p.59. REESE, STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER 20.

        A SERIES OF CHARTS, WITH SAILING DIRECTIONS, EMBRACING SURVEYS OF THE FARALLONES, ENTRANCE TO THE BAY OF SAN FRANCISCO.STATE OF CALIFORNIA.

      Washington: Printed by Jno. T. Towers, . 1852 - 48pp. plus eight lithographic plates including frontispiece, and six folding maps. Quarto. Original green cloth, elaborately decorated in gilt on front board. Cloth stained, front hinge neatly repaired. Old stain along gutter of titlepage/frontispiece, else generally quite clean internally. Three of the maps with long, closed splits, but with no loss. "Chart of Sacramento River" laid in. A good copy. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A presentation copy, inscribed on the titlepage: "For Hon. J.W. Denver of California, with the respects of the author." James William Denver (1817-92) was born in Virginia and served in the army during the Mexican War. He had a long and varied political career, serving as a member of the California State Senate in 1852-53, as California's Secretary of State of from 1853 to 1855, and then as a U.S. Congressman from California in 1855-57. In 1852 he engaged in a duel with newspaper editor Edward Gilbert, during which Denver killed Gilbert. Denver went on to serve as secretary and governor of Kansas Territory in 1857-58. It was while governor of Kansas Territory that land speculator William Larimer named the western Kansas town of "Denver" after him (the city would become capital of the state of Colorado). During the Civil War, Denver was a general in the Union Army. This copy also bears the small, early bookplate of Theodore D. Judah of Sacramento on the front pastedown. Though it was published only a little more than a decade before his death, this would seem to be the engineer, Theodore D. Judah (1826-63), who launched the Central Pacific Railroad and was the driving force behind the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad. As chief engineer of the Central Pacific, he surveyed the route over the Sierra Nevada that that railroad would eventually take. He lobbied tirelessly in Washington, D.C. for funding for the Transcontinental Railroad, eventually bringing together the "Big Four" railroad barons who would make the project a reality. The "third edition, with additions," after the first of 1851. Ringgold, a U.S. Navy officer, undertook the survey of the area from the Farallones to Sacramento at the request of a group of prominent San Franciscans, and this guide was utilized extensively during the peak years of the emigration and gold rush. The frontispiece is a view of San Francisco from Yerba Buena Island. The other plates show smaller, similar views of other areas, generally two to a plate. This edition was issued the year after the first. A copy with a remarkable provenance. HOWES R303. SABIN 71425. COWAN, p.534. KURUTZ 536d. HILL 1454.

      [Richmond, Virginia]. 1852. First. First edition. Document Nos. 21-89, and index, bound in one volume. Thick octavo (containing 69 consecutively numbered documents). Each document has a separate title page (dated 1852) and pagination. A few folding charts and one folding map. Half leather and marbled paper over boards, gilt-stamped spine label. Ex-library copy with a few ink stamps at the front, one perforated stamp on the title page of the first document (no. 21), pocket, and spine number. The front joint is split, front free endpaper detached, some loss to the spine ends, else very good. A scarce volume containing all five documents (a total of 29 pages), relating to the Jordan Hatcher Case.Hatcher was a tobacco factory slave in Richmond, Virginia, who had (unintentionally) killed his overseer in self-defense. In May of 1852, Governor Joseph Johnson ignited a firestorm when he commuted Hatcher's death sentence to sale and transportation beyond the confines of the United States. The five documents are [No. 74]: "Communication containing Gov. Johnson's Reasons for Commuting Jordan Hatcher's Sentence"; [No. 75]: Resolution relative to the Governor's Message on The Case of Jordan Hatcher"; [No. 78]: "Record of Court in Jordan Hatcher's Case, together with the Petition for Commutation of His Sentence"; [No. 79]: "Explanation of Governor Johnson's Reasons for Commuting Jordan Hatcher's Sentence"; [No. 84]: "Report of the Committee for Courts of Justice relative to the Exercise of the Pardoning Power in Jordan Hatcher's Case." OCLC locates one set of the first four Jordan Hatcher documents only (not including no. 84) at William & Mary.Other historically important documents relating to African-Americans from Virginia include two reports on the execution and/or transportation of African-American slaves beyond the confines of Virginia: [No. 46]: "Statements relative to Slaves Executed, Reprieved for Transportation &c." and [No. 80]: "Report of the Joint Committee to examine the Penitentiary Institution." Both documents have several appended tables with detailed information about slaves executed, condemned to be executed and reprieved, and slaves sentenced to sale and transportation, etc. Another document [no. 44], relates to the fugitive slave law between Virginia and New Jersey. Among the other documents in the volume are several relating to the development of railroads and public works projects throughout Virginia. .

        Presidential hopeful Henry Clay signs a membership document for the "American Colonization Society", organized to send emancipated and free blacks to Liberia

      Washington DC, May 21, 1852 An American Colonization Society document signed "H. Clay", 1 page, 11.125" x 8.25". The partly-printed, elaborate document states in part that "This certifies that Archibald W. Hyde, Esq. is a Member for life, of the American Colonization Society." There is an attractive engraving of a sailing ship; above the ship is a bird holding a scroll with the words "LIBERIA" printed on it. The American Colonization Society was an attempt to send freemen and emancipated slaves to Liberia on the West African coast. At the first meeting of the organization in 1816, Henry Clay presided over the meeting that included many prestigious Americans including future Presidents James Monroe and Andrew Jackson, as well as some Supreme Court Justices. The document is in outstanding condition with dark ink, impressive engravings and very white paper.

        [cover title]: Fuller's Computing Telegraph

      New York: John E. Fuller. 1852. Square quarto. Blind stamped flexible cloth folder or case, lettered in gilt, with 22 pages of instructions for use, and a large folding chart "delineated and arranged by W(illiam) Nicholson." Laid in is a thick, leather edged board, on either side is a moveable, engraved rondel: on one side is Fuller's Time Telegraph, on the other is Palmer's Computing Scale Improved by Fuller. The case has some fading to the bottom of the front board, a little wear at the spine, and foxing to the text; the board holding the rondel has a little edgewear, and the action of the rondel is stiff but workable, all-in-all a very good plus or perhaps near fine example. Palmer patented his Scale in 1843, Fuller made an agreement to offer Palmer's Scale, along with his own Time Telegraph in combination, and patented the change in 1847, when it was first offered. Reportedly manufactured in two sizes, this is the larger of the two. According to some sources, this device was the first device used for high speed calculations that was referred to as a "computer." The term was previously used to describe a mathematically adept person and the earliest OED citation for a non-human computer comes from 1897. Exceptionally scarce, especially in nice condition, as this example is. .
