Richter and was lithographed by Richter. It was printed by Charles Hullmandel, London. After printing the manual coloring took place. It is one of the few remaining originals from the time 1852-1854.

        Delle fisionomie dissertazione inaugurale. Pavia, Fratelli Fusi, May 1852.

      1852. 8vo. 28 pp. Upper cover preserves original green printed wrapper. Very rare, curious medical dissertation on physiognomy - in particular, how emotions and traits of character express themselves in the human face. The study of physiognomy is mainly associated with Charles Le Brun and Johann Kaspar Lavater in earlier centuries (and their approach resounds in the present dissertation), but it is well worth remembering that Charles Darwin made his principal contribution to human psychology with his book on "The Expression of Emotion in Animals and Men" as late as 1872, a study of genetically determined aspects of behaviour. - Some slight waterstaining to the top corner of the first few leaves. Apparently printed with a minimal press-run: no other copy traceable in library or collection catalogues internationally.

        Der Stephans-Turm. Aufgenommen von der Terrasse ober dem Dache der kaiserlichen Wiener Hof- und Staatsdruckerei.

      Albuminabzug(?) auf bedrucktem Karton, Beilage zu M(ichael) Auer's Zeitschrift 'Faust'. 26,2 x 18,5. 36,7 x 26,8. Die nach Faber/Gröning, Stadtpanoramen 1852 aufgenommene Ansicht mit Blick auf den Stefansdom, hier in einem Abzug für die Beilage der Zeitschrift von Alois Auers Bruder Michael 'Faust' Nr. 2, 1856, erschienen. Hackel war seit 1851 Leiter der fotografischen Abteilung der Staatsdruckerei, wohl von Paul Pretsch eingestellt, sein Geburtsdatum ist unbekannt, er starb 1861 oder 1862. Siehe Hochreiter/Starl, Lexikon, Bad Ischl 1983, dort nach einem Salzpapierabzug abgebildet Albuminabzug bei Faber/Gröning vgl. Zahlbrecht 1978, Tafel 7 Frank, Vom Zauber ..., Wien 1981 Sammlung Lebeck 1996, 172, alle mit abweichender Datierung. Alois Auer von Welsbach, unter dessen Anleitung sein Bruder 1854 bis zum Tod Aloisens 1862 die 'Poligrafisch illustrirte Zeitschrift für Kunst, Wissenschaft, Industrie und Unterhaltung' herausgab, hatte kurz zuvor den Naturselbstdruck erfunden und einzelne Blätter als Beilagen für die Zeitschrift hergestellt. Seit Adalbert Stifters Blick vom und zum Stephansturm (in 'Wien und die Wiener' 1842), hat diese Dach- und Turmlandschaft auch die neuen Fototechniker und -künstler herausgefordert. Die Aufnahme vom alten Gebäude der Staatsdruckerei Ecke Singerstraße/Seilerstätte aus, erlaubt einen Blick in die oberen Regionen der Singerstraße mit der Deutschordenskirche, im Hintergrund die Kuppel der Peterskirche. Die Aufstockung des Billiotteschen Stiftungshauses (Palais Rottal) erfolgte kurz zuvor mit Figuren vom Winterpalais des Prinzen Eugen in der Himmelpfortgasse. Es beherbergte zur Zeit der Aufnahme das Ministerium für Kultus und Unterricht. Vgl. Dürigl, Wien auf alten Photographien, Wien 1981, Bild 1 und 32.

        The Wellington Souvenir: A Golden Record!

      London: Simpkin & Marshall; Howlett & Son,, 1852. Small octavo (150 x 98 mm). Publisher's(?) dark red morocco, decorative gilt spine, two-line gilt border on sides enclosing ornamental gilt panel, front cover gilt lettered "The Wellington Souvenir", all edges gilt, pale yellow coated endpapers. Wood-engraved title vignette portrait in profile, frontispiece of Wellington on Copenhagen (after Sir Thomas Lawrence), 3 plates of battles (Assaye, Vittoria, Waterloo) all by Adeney; text and plates printed entirely in gold on gloss paper, the letterpress within two-line gold borders. Binding lightly rubbed at extremities, touch of foxing to endpapers. An excellent copy. First and only edition; very scarce: Copac cites just three locations (BL, Cambridge, Scotland), OCLC adds just two more (BnF. Oxford) and we have traced a further copy at the National Library of Ireland. This little souvenir volume gives a brief biography of Wellington and includes a four-page chronology that concludes with the Duke's death at Walmer Castle on 14 September 1852. It may well have been issued to coincide with the state funeral: "His body lay in state at Walmer and then at Chelsea Hospital. His burial at St Paul's Cathedral on 18 November was the occasion for probably the most ornate and spectacular funeral ever seen in England, the procession from Horse Guards via Constitution Hill to St Paul's being witnessed, it was estimated, by a million and a half people" (ODNB).

Housed in custom half morocco slipcase. $6000.First edition, first printing, of Hawthorne's first book for children, with frontispiece and six engraved plates. An exceptionally clean and bright copy.Although Hawthorne had written a number of histories, biographies and morals for children prior to the publication of The Scarlet Letter in 1850, these early stories were primarily undertaken as hack-work and published in periodicals. Following the success of The Scarlet Letter, Hawthorne attempted to capitalize on his fame with two intended money-makers, A Wonder-Book and Tanglewood Tales, in 1853. Both were very popular and have since been celebrated for their retelling of myths for children. Includes six tales: "The Gorgon's Head," "The Paradise of Children," "The Three Golden Apples," "The Miraculous Pitcher," and "The Chimaera," as well as Hawthorne's version of the King Midas tale, "The Golden Touch." The popular success of A Wonder-Book led Hawthorne to publish another volume of children's stories in 1853, Tanglewood Tales.

Bamberg: Verlag der Buchner'schen Buchhandlung, 1852. Orig.-Halbleinen-Mappe mit Kordelbindung. 28 Textseiten mit Register und mehrfach gefaltete, grenzkolorierte Karte (53,5 x 72 cm). * Zweite, seltene Ausgabe. - Howes (N57) lists related imprints from 1853 and 1855. Wheat (Maps of the California Gold Region 274) lists an 1855 edition, but with the same insets. Not in Phillips, who lists the 1853 version that appeared in Trautgott Bromme's 1853 guide (p. 903). This map was undoubtedly used by emigration agents and others in Germany to induce people to move to the expanding western regions of the United States, such as Texas, California, and Oregon. The chief feature of the map relating to the West is the large inset map showing routes to California and Oregon. No doubt the recent discovery of gold in California made this map even more useful and desirable. The insets are particularly interesting since they show the two main arrival ports in some detail and the overland routes to Oregon, Sacramento, and Los Angeles. Texas extends as far west as Goliad. New Mexico is labeled "Santa Fe" and reaches almost to Fort Laramie. - Einband berieben u. bestoßen Textteil mit stärkeren Gebrauchsspuren Faltkarte grenzkoloriert u. mit einem ca. 11 cm langen Einriss in der Faltung. - Sehr seltene deutsche Auswanderer-Karte !

        Treatise on Marine and Naval Architecture, or, Theory and Practice blended in Ship Building

      Lithographed frontis., 45 black & white plates, and two printed tables. 420, ii pp. Large 4to, orig. cloth (extremities with very minor wear, some foxing due to the quality of the paper). New York: D. Appleton, 1852. "Third edition" of the first great American book on naval architecture (1st ed.: 1849). Griffiths (1809-82), was one of the earliest outstanding naval architects in America and, during the early 1850s, his steamships were the fastest and finest in the world. "Through his writings Griffiths did more than any one else to put shipbuilding in America on a scientific basis, in place of the 'rule of thumb' methods then in vogue. He was not only an influential theorist, however, but a practical designer of ships as well, and one of the first in the United States outside of naval constructors like Joshua Humphreys, to specialize in designing. Most of his contemporaries, like Donald McKay, Samuel Hall, and Jacob Bell, owned shipyards and actually built the ships they designed...Griffiths, however, with his particular inventive genius and bold originality, was content to draw the plans and let others execute them. He showed amazing versatility in that period of constant innovation, designing outstanding vessels of many sorts - sail and steam, wood and iron, war and commerce. Though the Ann McKim, built at Baltimore in 1832, is often called the pioneer clipper, Griffiths is credited with designing the first 'extreme clipper ship,' the Rainbow, 750 tons, launched in 1845 for the China trade...To secure increased speed by reducing resistance, he gave these ships slender bows and sterns rising high above the water, concave bow waterlines and 'the greatest breadth at a point considerably further aft than had hitherto been considered practicable' (Clark, post, p. 65). Conservative skeptics attacked these innovations, questioning the safety of such sharp, slender ships, but they proved to be the fastest afloat and strongly influenced the subsequent development of the American clipper. Griffiths then turned to steamships, where again his influence was important...His writings and the success of his ships brought him orders from all parts of the world."-D.A.B., IV, pp. 626-27. This book is very attractively illustrated with forty-five striking black & white plates, depicting various parts of ships and matters of design. A fresh copy of a book which does not survive well. Surprisingly rare. There is essentially no difference between the first, second, and third editions. ❧ Hindle, Technology in Early America, p. 55-"Just after mid-century a remarkable work appeared which was filled with insights not obtainable elsewhere: John W. Griffiths' Treatise…This large undertaking is based on the belief that European treatises did not help much in the United States, because of different terms in use, because they were not fundamentally intended for merchant shipbuilding, and because they were not sufficiently adapted to the knowledge and talents of the operative mechanics. The result is very helpful to the historian.".

      Milano: Giovanni Ricordi [PNs 23071-23090], 1852. First Edition. One of two issues (the absence of a date on the Ricordi blindstamp may indicate a slightly later printing).

Rigoletto, in three acts to a libretto by Francesco Maria Piave after Victor Hugo's play Le roi s'amuse, was first performed in Venice at the Teatro La Fenice on March 11, 1851. "The première, with a cast that included Raffaele Mirate (Duke), Felice Varesi (Rigoletto...) and Teresa Brambilla (Gilda), was an enormous success, and the opera, in spite of continuing problems with local censors, almost immediately became part of the basic repertory, being performed more than 250 times in its first ten years. Rigoletto has never lost this position and remains one of the most frequently performed operas in the international repertory... Rigoletto is almost always placed as the true beginning of Verdi's maturity, the essential dividing line between ?early' works and the succession of repertory pieces that will follow..."

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER ADDRESSED TO MIRANDA COMBS, FROM HER COUSIN IN THE CALIFORNIA GOLD FIELDS AT MOKELUMNE HILL IN 1852]

      Mokelumne Hill, Ca, 1852. [4]pp., on a bifolium, approximately 12 1/2 x 8 inches, with envelope. Folded. Small separations at fold lines. Envelope browned and chipped. Light foxing and smudging at foot of inner pages. Light tanning. About very good. A lively letter from an anonymous gold seeker at the California diggings to his cousin Miranda Combs back home in Mina, Chautauqua County, New York. Written in three sections over the course of a week in the middle of December, 1852, the first part of the letter describes the writer's journey from New York, departing Nov. 2 by sea to San Francisco, by way of the isthmus of Panama, and the first days after travel overland through Stockton and his arrival at Mokelumne Hill on December 3, where he immediately begins working: "It took me two days but I made money faster than I expect to for some time. They were washing out the bed[?] the day I came in & in a day & a half more, made about 14.dols. a piece." The second section relates some of the working conditions at the gold fields: "In Cal., the "saw" is instead of 'make hay while the sun shines,' is 'wash while the rain falls.' I offer no excuse for my own part but this, we can work while it rains. I play most of the fair weather, for want of water. I have had a pretty good breaking in...." In the final segment, the author gives some account of the town and its attractions: "The hotels are almost entirely brothels & gaming hells; three-fourths of the women, unsightly and moral corpses. Negroes, Chinamen, Spaniards, Chilians, French, Dutch, rowdies & desperadoes from the Atlantic States & all other hot-beds of crime. Such is Moquelumne hill, & as you reasoned, such is Cal. as far as I can judge. Shooting and stabbing is a common occurrence, there is a gallows within 20 rods of our camp, on which, they tell me, a Chilian [sic] man was executed for horse-stealing." A narrative tinged with palpable excitement, written by a newcomer to the Mokelumne gold fields within a month of his arrival to California. This letter is accompanied by a second from another relative of Miranda Combs from Marengo, Illinois relating community and family news.

        Falconry in the Valley of the Indus

      1852 - BURTON, Richard F. Falconry in the Valley of the Indus. London: John Van Voorst, 1852. Slim octavo, original blind-stamped dark purple cloth. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $7000.First edition of "one of the earliest of Burton's books of travel" (Abbey), one of only 500 copies, with four full-page lithographic plates (including frontispiece), in original blind-stamped cloth.In 1842 Burton left Oxford to take a military commission in India. He worked as a surveyor and spy, mastering several Middle Eastern languages. In 1844, on a trek north to the Phuleli and Guni rivers of the Sind desert, Burton "found time to engage in some falconry". the postscript to the book gives one of the few pictures by Burton of the way in which he lived and worked among the natives" (Rice, 123). "One of the earliest of Burton's books of travel" (Abbey), Falconry is also notably one of a quartet of books based on his experiences in India that Burton compiled from his notes while on leave in Europe in 1850-51; the other books are Goa, and the Blue Mountains (1851), Scinde, or, the Unhappy Valley (1851) and Sindh, and the Races that Inhabit the Valley of the Indus (1852). "He was a born naturalist, and if he had pursued this line alone". he might have ranked among the greatest" (Rice, 109). Containing four full-page tinted lithographic plates after Joseph Wolf. With rear eight-page publisher's catalogue dated 1851: including two works listed as "just published" that cite reviews respectively dated "May 1st, 1852" and "April 26th, 1852."

        Extensive Archive relating to the three-year maiden circumnavigation voyage of the Nova Scotia Bark "Avondale"

      Various places, 1852. The items in this archive are overall in very good condition.. Extensive archive of bills of lading, purchase receipts, shipping documents, pay ledgers, harbour masters' certificates and other official documents. A remarkable archive of over eighty items summarising in detailed documents the history of a mid-19th century trading circumnavigation, including stops in Melbourne, Sydney, San Francisco and Honolulu.The collection includes bills of lading, purchase receipts, shipping documents, pay ledgers, harbour masters' certificates and other official documents which chronicle the voyage of Captain Thomas Henry Armstrong as he circumnavigated the globe between 1849 and 1852 in his merchant bark the Avondale. The three-year voyage took Armstrong from Nova Scotia to Liverpool, Melbourne, Sydney, San Francisco, Honolulu, Valparaiso, Montevideo, New Orleans and back to Nova Scotia. Tragically, Captain Armstrong died at sea in October 1852 during the final leg of the voyage from New Orleans to Nova Scotia. His wife Melinda's mourning brooch with a tintype of Captain Armstrong is included in this archive as well as a daguerreotype of him. Melinda was part of the Mounce family, a family of notable Avondale ship builders. Over a dozen items relate to the Avondale's stay in Melbourne and Sydney in July & August 1850 mainly receipts (including one for charts of the Northern Pacific) and a printed leaf "Code of Signals, in Use at Melbourne". A Chalmers & Co memorandum marked Liverpool February 1850 notes that the Bark is insured to Sydney and no further "not knowing where you might next go to".Included in the archive is a letter from Armstrong's brother dated 10 October 1852 addressed to New Orleans, speaking of family matters and referring to heightened political tension: referring to those in favour of slavery as "that great curse of our land...they will ere long hear a voice which will make then tremble". This letter is a rather mournful inclusion, given Armstrong's death at sea in the same month. The small ledger detailing for the most part wages and provisioning obviously passed into the hands of Armstrong's daughter Annie Elizabeth and been used as a scrapbook. The collection also includes: A receipt from Oct. 1849 for duty paid in Windsor, Nova Scotia on the newly built bark Avondale; Mariners' tickets including persons with distinguishing features such as "Crooked Nose" and "Growing Boy;" Many purchase receipts; An ink sketch of most likely the Avondale; Ten items (Nov. 1850 - March 1851) from the first call in San Francisco, mainly receipts including one from the "Alta California Newspaper" for an announcement that the Avondale was sailing for Panama; Six items relating to the Avondale's first call in Montevideo Aug. 1851; Four items relating to the Avondale's stay in Honolulu in Nov. 1851 including a printed pictorial letterhead certificate of clearance; Five items from the second call in San Francisco Dec. 1851 & Jan. 1852; Sixteen items relating to the Avondale's stay in Valparaiso April 1852; Three items relating to the Avondale's second call in Montevideo May & June 1852. This rare collection of ephemera and the Barque Avondale itself spring from what was referred to as Nova Scotia's "Golden Age of Sail".
