Zus. ca. 101 Seiten. - Adressiert an (und aus dem Nachlass von) Joseph Eberle, Redakteur bei der Reichspost und Herausgeber der katholischen Zeitschrift "Schönere Zukunft" 1884-1947). Manuskripte zur Veröffentlichung in der Reichspost, bei welcher Eberle den Bereich "Allgemeine Kultur und religiöse Fragen" leitete. (7. IX. 1919:) "Es gibt keinen Autor, der nicht von einem mißwollenden Leser hingerichtet werden könnte; dagegen hilft keine Vorsicht. Als ich vor Jahren meine apologtischen Gespräche über Religion in Jos. Mosers "Schul- u. Elternztg." veröffentlichte, erhielt Moser auch von einem Ordenspriester, der mich aber wiederholt in gedrückten Kritiken überschwenglich gelobt hat, bedenkliche Briefe, so daß mir nachträglich die Herausgabe in Buchform verleidet war. Und nun sagte mir vor kurzem Seminardirektor Gustav Müller, ihm habe ein Priester gesagt, daß er noch jetzt diese alten Kapitel bei Predigten u. sonst sehr gut gebrauchen könne. Ich habe dann bei Moser auch eine Psychologie ("Welt und Seele") kapitelweise erscheinen lassen; da würden mir aber die Bedenken über diese Arbeit zu arg und ich brach die Veröffentlichung plötzlich ab, um nicht Ärgernis zu erregen" Weiter Bezug zur Flucht von Joseph Görres, Publizist (1776-1848). - Sonstige Briefe zu bestimmten Zeitungsartikeln oder der Position Kraliks gegenüber der Reichspost, etc. - Postkarten: (Undatierte Postkarte:) Verschiebung einer Gralsitzung (Anm.: Kralik gründete die katholisch-nationalistische Gesellschaft "Gralbund" mit der Zeitung "Der Gral") - (undatierte Postkarte:) Einladung zu einer Gralsitzung am 6. XII. 1916. - (Postkarte 16. XI. 1918:) "L[ieber] fr[eund] Ich rate dir, in der Anzeige des neuen Titels zu sagen, daß nicht eine Wandlung in den Anschauungen über die Staatsform, sondern der Umstand ausschlaggebend war, daß derzeit eine "öst.-ung. Monarchie" als Reichsgebiet nicht existiert, sondern nur verschiedene Teilstaaten, von denen wir allerdings hoffen, daß sie auf föderativem Wege wieder zu einem Bunde einigen werden, dessen Benennung wir aber nicht vorgreifen wollen. - Ich habe heute wieder ein paar Artikelchen geschrieben [.]" - (1. IX. 1919:) "Ich beug’ mich geknirscht vor dem Wauwau Von der Hohen Schule von Stockerau und flehe, man spreche mich endlich frei Von meiner verbrecherischen Bahrbahrei". - Manuskripte: Alle Manuskripte sind auf der Rückseite eines alten Manuskriptes verfasst worden, welches unvollständig und unzusammenhängend ist (hauptsächlich Geschichtliches).

        MAP AND PROFILE OF THE ROUTE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A SHIP CANAL FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC OCEANS, ACROSS THE ISTHMUS IN THE STATE OF NICARAGUA, CENTRAL AMERICA, SURVEYED FOR THE AMERICAN ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC SHIP CANAL COMPANY. BY. O.W. CHILDS. 1850-51.

      Wm. C. Bryant & Co., Printers,, New York: 1852 - Cover title. Large folding map, approx. 36" x 107", folded to 6" x 8.5". Bound in printed green paper-covered boards with black cloth spine [boards lightly rubbed and spotted], accession label on spine. The map has some hand-colored routes and locations. Map sections have been expertly joined in several places with archival tape applied to blank verso [apparently as issued]. Tanning along some folds and edges, light spotting. Several expertly mended fold splits [no text loss], a few short closed tears repaired on verso with archival tape. Manuscript ownership signature of W.H. Talcott at head of front board. The map has a blind embossed stamp in a blank margin: "American Society of Civil Engineers, Founded in New York in A.D. 1852." Very Good. The 1840s brought forth much advocacy of a ship canal through Nicaragua and across the Isthmus of Panama, connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The United States and England clashed over its control. The Clayton-Bulwer Treaty resulted in an agreement for joint support and control. The treaty was signed and ratified in 1850. Ephraim G. Squier, U.S. Charge' d' Affaires, had negotiated with the American, Atlantic & Pacific Ship Canal Company to do the work. Col. O.W. Childs of Philadelphia was appointed Chief Engineer, and assigned the task of surveying and determining a line of location. W[illiam] H. Talcott [1809-1868], this map's previous owner, was a Connecticut native who moved to Albany to study engineering under John B. Jervis. During his early career, he surveyed the Hudson River and the Albany and West Stockbridge Railroad, and was Superintendent and Engineer of the Mohawk and Hudson Railroad. He was appointed Constructing Engineer of the Genesee Valley Canal in 1837, resident engineer upon the Erie Canal Enlargement project in 1841, Resident Engineer and Superintendent of the Western Division of the Morris Canal in New Jersey in 1845 and its Chief Engineer and Superintendent in 1846, and finally, as the President of the Canal Company in 1864. He was one of the twelve founding members of the American Society of Civil Engineers, formed in 1852. OCLC shows thirteen locations, as of November 2013. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The Presentation plate filled out by the owner in December 1852. Moderate to heavy foxing and staining throughout, the plates darkened a bit but still fairly clean and quite attractive. Overall a Very Good copy with early color plates of Native Americans [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Collection of Twenty-four Diaries, 1852-1899

      1852-1899. A collection of diaries spanning nearly five decades by a Centreville, Pennsylvania native, William M. Shriver, who was possibly a Civil War veteran. Twenty-four volumes, small octavo, various bindings (cloth, leather). Generally in fine condition. The brief entries are all written in pencil, with detailed household accounting lists in the back. They are mostly concise descriptions of the weather and the diarist's main activity of the day: working in the store, going to the local tavern, etc.. Shriver has signed his name with the location and date in most of the volumes. The years included are: 1852, 1853, 1869, 1870-71, 1871, 1872, 1874, 1875, 1876-77, 1877-78, 1880-1881, 1881, 1882, 1883, 1887, 1888, 1890, 1891, 1892, 1894, 1895, 1896, 1897, 1899. In the 1870 United States Federal Census, there is an entry for a William Shriver of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania with an approximate birth date of 1830. The Civil War holdings of the Pennsylvania State Archives contains the papers and military records of a William M. Shriver of Cumberland County, dating from 1855, 1862-66, 1871-72, 1877-79, 1886, 1891, and 1897. Though there is no definitive evidence that all this refers to the same man, still the possibility exists that the William Shriver born about 1830 in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, is the same William Shriver who served during the Civil War, who, in turn, is the author of these diaries. Regardless, the diaries are a good resource for those curious about the daily life of an average citizen in 19th Century America. .

        The Model Architect: The Panic of '09

      Karen Hanmer, 2010. Hard Cover. Fine. Hard Cover. Number 20 of 30 copies. Signed and numbered by the book artist. This book was one of six winners of the "Building by the Book" competition sponsored by the Philadelphia Athenaeum and Philadelphia Center for the Book. This work by noted book artist Karen Hanmer is based on Samuel Sloan's 1852 collection of house plans and instructions to contractors titled The Model Architect. Hanmer juxtaposes Sloan's historical text and illustrations with modern text from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's online "Guide to Avoiding Foreclosure." The artist provides commentary in the colophon reflecting on the effects of the 2008 financial collapse on her own neighborhood. She states: "Samuel Sloan's The Model Architect was published at the mid point of a century marked by cycles of rampant speculation followed by financial collapse. The Panic of 1857 came on the heels of publication of Sloan's work, and put a halt to the most active portion of his career. This milieu mirrors what has happened in my own neighborhood of modest homes over the past fifteen years. The transformation began with some owners remodeling their kitchen, or adding a family room or bedroom. Then larger additions came. Ultimately, the houses commanded high prices to be sold as teardowns. Huge new houses were built in their places. The construction proceeded with increasingly grandiose features; portions of the facade faced with thin sheets of stone, wooden garage doors with cast iron-like fittings, decorative copper accents on the roofs, turrets, lions flanking the brick driveways. Now the house across the street, the house next door, and the house next door to that are all in foreclosure, and soon will be uninhabitable. The lawns grow without interruption. Without electricity and heat the basements fill with water, the pipes burst, the mechanicals are destroyed. Few modest, affordable homes remain in the neighborhood." Bound in marbled paper covered boards with black leather spine and red leather title label, titled and ruled in gilt. Bound using the modern drum leaf structure but replicating the look of a 19th century book. Housed in an archival paper case with the edition number and artist's contact information stamped on the front panel. Measures 14 x 11 x .5 inches. 48 pages. ARTB/121212.

Scarce early local imprint, with Binns and Goodwin of Bath advertisements at the rear. Dated from other Bath imprints on Copac and the ink inscription. Bound in green cloth covered boards with gilt and embossed detail. Emma Jane Worboise (1825-1887) was a novelist from Birmingham. She published her first novel Alice Cunningham when she was just 21. She published over fifty evangelical stories and novels. She was a contributor to the Christian World Magazine and Family Visitor. In 1866 there wasa contributor called Ernest Etherington but no evidence has been found of a Mr Etherington Guyton, her supposed husband so it is thought that this was used as a pen name, maybe in relation to her alcoholism. Condition: The binding is generally firm but the cords are exposed at the centre. There is some significant wear to the extremities including splitting to the cloth on the spine panel, fading, and some marks. Internally the pages are generally clean with the occasional spot or handling mark. There is a contemporary copperplate ink signature to the title page and on one page of the rear advertisements.

        A North East View of the new General Post Office, With the Royal Mails (& Carts) preparing to Start

      London: Messrs. Fores, 31 December 1852. Aquatint, coloured by hand, by Henry Pyall. Trimmed within margins left and right side, mat birn in margins, well away from image. 14 7/8 x 22 7/8 inches. 19 1/2 x 25 1/8 inches. A fine quality image, a re-issue of a print first published in 1832. James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print- seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. From 1821 he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeplechasing. In all his work he took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works, such as the present busy London scene, the people are all individuals going about their daily lives, and the coaches, carts and cabs have all been very carefully observed: a true microcosm of London.

        The City and Harbour of Sydney from near Vaucluse

      London,: Thomas Boys Lith. Published by J. Hogarth, [and] Sydney, Messrs. Woolcott & Clarke,, 1852.. Tinted lithograph with additional hand-colouring, 315 x 550 mm, on sheet 440 x 680 mm; in good condition, framed. George French Angas (1822-86) was one of the most accomplished artists to live in mid-nineteenth century Australia. After extensive travel throughout Australia, New Zealand and England, he settled in Sydney, and from 1853 to 1860 held the position of secretary to the Australian Museum. Angas painted in the picturesque tradition and provided faithful visual records of "countries with which the people of England are still but only imperfectly acquainted", as he noted in the catalogue to his London Exhibition of 1846.Angas's fine view of Sydney Harbour was taken from the lofty vantage point of Vaucluse. It shows a group of local Aborigines with a dingo in the foreground set amidst a faithful rendering of the local flora including the waratah and banksia, which are named. The sweep of harbour includes a number of colonial landmarks, from Captain Piper's villa at Point Piper and Government House through to Bradley's Head, with the Blue Mountains in the distance. Angas made a number of watercolours of Sydney and it was after one of these that this colour lithograph was made in 1852. When it was issued it was "favourably reviewed in both the Sydney Morning Herald (14 March 1853) and the Freeman's Journal (17 March)..." (Christine Dixon in J. Kerr, The Dictionary of Australian Artists).This lithograph of Sydney Harbour satisfies both the topographical obligation and Angas's own quest for the picturesque - "his ardent admiration for the grandeur and loveliness of nature...", as he described it in one of his books, Savage Life and Scenes.

        Medical morals, illustrated with plates and extracts from medical works; designed to show the pernicious social and moral influence of the present system of medical practice, and the importance of establishing female medical colleges, and educating and employing female physicians for their own sex

      New York: Published by the author, 1852. 8vo (22 cm; 8.5"). 48 pp. Cataloguers have universally identified "George Gregory" of the title- and copyright pages as the famous English physician (1790–1853), teacher, textbook writer, and advocate of vaccination. This is patently wrong. The author is based in the U.S. as is made clear by reading the pamphlet: The English George Gregory never lived in the U.S., and, indeed, on p. 18 we are told that George is the brother of Samuel Gregory, a founder of the Boston Female Medical College. George Gregory seeks here to champion his brother's cause of educating women to minister medically to women, especially but not exclusively as midwives in the broadest terms. "Does the fact that a man practises medicine give him any right to invade his neighbor's wife . . . ?" Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only five U.S. institutions reporting ownership. Removed from a nonce volume, with the two plates (which would have been near-pornographic in their time) torn out and present in laid-in facsimile, thus lowering the price considerably. Lightly age-toned, with a little foxing and spotting only.
