        Report of an Expedition Down the Zuni and Colorado Rivers by Captain L. Sitgreaves, Corps Topographical Engineers

      Robert Armstrong, Public Printer, Washington 1853 - 198pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] Original calf with red and black leather labels on the backstrip. 'Senate Documents 2d Sess 32d Cong' gilt stamped on red label. '1852-53' gilt stamped on black label. The extremities are subtly rubbed. The front board is a bit splayed, with the lower portion being mildly damp stained. The spine is slightly rolled back. There is a 1/2" crack in the front board, at the head of the joint. The text block is cracked at the center. Sporadic foxing throughout. The large folding map is present at the rear of the volume and is in nice clean condition. All plates present. The announced purpose of Sitgreaves' expedition was to determine whether the Zuni River actually emptied into the Colorado, and to examine the territory en route. Wheat described the large folding map as follows: "All in all this map is a monumental achievement and while it is marred with misspellings (such as "Butles for Buttes) it is generally correct and exceedingly well done."

As a result of his explorations and excavations, Layard was able to supply the British Museum with the greater part of its collection of Assyrian antiquities. In addition to the archeological value of his work in identifying Kouyunjik as the site of Nineveh, Layard's work provided a great mass of materials for scholars at the time and presently. Layard started his second expedition, investigating the ruins of Babylon and the mounds of southern Mesopotamia. He is credited with discovering the Library of Ashurbanipal during this period. This volume is considered a classic of archaeology and travel writing. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Summer Search for Sir John Franklin With A Peep into the Polar Basin

      London: Thomas Harrison 1853 - London: Thomas Harrison, 1853. First Edition. 8vo. - 22.7cm. Half-title, Folding map and 4 lithographic plates. Original publisher's blue blind-stamped decorated cloth, gilt-lettered on spine. Abbey Travel 642; NMM 920; Sabin 34758; Staton & Tremaine/TPL 3265; Arctic Bibliography 7716 Inglefield set out from Britain on his search in July 1852, commanding Lady Franklin's private steamer Isabel, seven years after Franklin had left on his ill-fated search for the fabled Northwest Passage. Once Inglefield had reached the Arctic, a search and survey of Greenland's west coast was made; Ellesmere Island was re-sighted and named in honor of the president of the Royal Geographical Society; Smith Sound was penetrated further than any known records; Jones Sound was also searched; and a landing was made at Beechey Island in Lancaster Sound. No sign, however, of Franklin's expedition was found. Finally, before the onset of winter forced Inglefield to turn homewards, the expedition searched and charted much of Baffin Island's eastern coast. Despite finding no traces of the Franklin expedition, Inglefield was fted on his return for the surveying his expedition had achieved. The Royal Geographical Society awarded him its 1853 Patron's Medal "for his enterprising survey of the coasts of Baffin Bay, Smith Sound and Lancaster Sound." This copy has been professionally restored. By using an actual first edition, highly detailed, dimensionally correct, faithful reproductions were made of the fold-out panorama and the fold-out map at the rear Ñ these were both missing in this copy when it was obtained. The two pages have been attached in their proper places by a professional bookbinder. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        BARGAINING FOR A HORSE. Engraved from the original painting in possession of the New York Gallery of Fine Arts.

      New York: American Art Union, 1851 [i.e. 1853]. - Engraved print, 11 x 12 inches; mattted to 15 x 16 inches. Small crease at bottom edge, else fine. Engraving by Charles Burt, after William Sidney Mount's famous painting of New England horse trading. This work is typical of Mount's style, capturing a scene from everyday rural American life. Standing outside a rickety stable, two men whittle sticks as they negotiate the price of a saddled horse, standing near a fence behind and to their left. Charles Burt was a Scottish-born engraver who emigrated to New York City, where he gained both experience and renown. This is among his better- known works. Though the line beneath the title attributes the date as 1851, the very small print at the bottom notes a copyright date of 1853, after the American Art Union had been dissolved. A lovely copy of this iconic image.

        Exodus: or the second book of Moses. Translated into the Cherokee language.

      Park Hill [OK]: Mission Press: Edwin Archer, Pr. Tall, narrow 12mo (17 cm; 6.75"). 152 pp.. 1853–[55] A scarce Park Hill imprint, entirely in the Cherokee language and using Sequoyah's syllabary (generally called the "Cherokee alphabet"). Hargrett states that "printing of the volume [of Exodus] was not completed until some time in 1855." The translators were Samuel Austin Worcester (1798–1859) and Stephen Foreman (1807–81). As a young man living with his parents in New England, Worcester had met and become friends with Buck Oowatie, a Cherokee whose name among Anglos was Elias Boudinot. Worcester studied for the ministry and after he had been ordained, he requested a post among the Cherokee. Once there he set to introducing printing, newspapers, and expanded literacy using Sequoyah's syllabary. Foreman was born in Georgia of a Cherokee mother and a white father. He was educated at Union Seminary, Princeton Seminary, and Marysville College (Tenn.), and was ordained in 1835. He made the trek from his homeland to the West with the Cherokee, and spent his life at and near the Park Hill mission. Removed from a bound volume, last two pages supplied (along with duplicates of integral pp. 145–50) from a taller, never bound copy. Supplied leaves with light waterstaining and loose and pp. 146–50 of main textblock also loose; early and late leaves of textblock stained, browned, soiled. Far from a perfect example but complete, useful, and, made up as it is, additionally illustrative of some aspects of handpress printing.

        Manuscript. California Blacksmith's account book

      "Auburn, California". 1853-1854. "Folio, unpaginated (88 pp. manuscript entries); This is the record of a blacksmith and wheelwright named Moses Preedom (Prudhomme) in the gold fields near Sacramento. Bound in quarter cloth over marbled boards; covers worn, contents clean and legible. According to ""The History of Placer and Nevada Counties"" Preedom was ""Auburn's pioneer blacksmith...Arriving at Auburn, Moses Prudhomme went to work in Richard Hildreth's blacksmith shop, which he bought out, after having worked for Mr. Hildreth for eleven months, and for many years he conducted one of the leading blacksmith shops in Placer County."" The book lists startup expenditures for tools and material, then records accounts with customers often identified by their nicknames - ""Missourian,"" ""Negro,"" ""Toothache,"" ""Teamster,"" ""Stutterer,"" ""Fortyniner,"" etc. Preedom rimmed and filed wheels, shod horses, made spokes and wagon tungs, and performed a wide variety of repairs. At the end of the book he lists his personal expenses for 1854, and these reflect the high prices goods brought in the gold fields. For example, four pounds of butter cost $2; a pound of tea $1; a dozen eggs $1.50. Gold was discovered in Auburn in 1848 by another French Canadian, perhaps accounting for Preedom's move there. "

The concert inUtrecht on 26 November also featured the premiere of the Introduction and Allegro for piano and orchestra op.134, played by Clara.
