        THE MINER'S PROGRESS; OR, SCENES IN THE LIFE OF A CALIFORNIA MINER. BEING A SERIES OF HUMOROUS ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE "UPS AND DOWNS" OF A GOLD DIGGER IN PURSUIT OF HIS "PILE."

      Sacramento: Published at the Daily Union Office, 1853.. 13pp. (eleven of them with crudely handcolored illustrations) followed by [2]pp. of ads. Original pictorial salmon-colored wrappers. Wrappers stained and quite worn, with several tears at edges. Bookplate on inner front wrapper, early ownership signature at head of front wrapper. Text leaves with some tears at edges, but none affecting text or illustrations. A worn but overall good copy. In a cloth chemise and slipcase. A classic of Gold Rush satire, being among the earliest published works of humorist Alonzo Delano, and iconic Gold Rush artist Charles Nahl. The project was initiated by the SACRAMENTO UNION, which hired Delano and Nahl to produce the work, which also appeared in the July 4, 1853 edition of the paper. Delano, who often wrote under the name "Old Block," emphasizes the loneliness, exhaustion, and dashed hopes of the miner, and Nahl's sketches perfectly reinforce the tone of the work. The story ends well, however, with the miner striking gold and returning home to his loving family in Maine. Charles Nahl and his brother, Arthur, came to the United States from Germany in 1849, and arrived in California the following year. Charles, the "Cruikshank of California," was the superior artist, and his illustrations of Gold Rush scenes are highly lauded. Hamilton says that Nahl's illustrations "depicting the life of the miner in the days of the gold rush are extraordinarily good...he was an excellent interpreter of the humor and pathos of early California life." The ads tout the several publications of the SACRAMENTO UNION. Kurutz notes blue-green pictorial wrappers, while ours are salmon-colored. A "third edition" also appeared in 1853, which presumes that there was also a second edition, though Kurutz never located one. KURUTZ 179a. COWAN, p.163. GREENWOOD 382. ROCQ 6043. STREETER SALE 2736.

        Testimonial to George Tinline, Esq. [caption title]

      no date or imprint, but likely, [Adelaide?] 1853 - Duodecimo, 24 pp., worn at old folds, last two leaves with small loss; otherwise very good in modern tan half calf. Very rare printed account of a grand dinner organised for George Tinline, then acting Manager of the South Australian Banking Company. The event was described in the press as the largest private dinner party that had ever been given in South Australia.'Tinline was acting manager in the economic crisis of 1851-53 when his bank faced collapse' (ADB), and his bold actions not only saved the Bank of South Australia, but led directly to a boom in its stocks. In 1853 a public dinner was held, and this pamphlet prints the text of a testimonial printed in the contemporary South Australian newspapers.Its publication is a bit of a mystery. Ferguson knew two different issues of the 1889 issue, but this much more modest 24pp. pamphlet seems more likely to be an offprint of the newspaper report printed in Adelaide in 1853, and certainly has the physical characteristics of works of that date.

        Sea Nile, the Desert, and Nigritia:

      London: published by the Author,, 1853. Travels in Company with Captain Peel, R.N. 1851-1852 … With Thirteen Arabic Songs, as Sung by the Egyptian Sailors on the Nile. Octavo. Original brown cloth, title gilt to the spine, elaborate panels with large palmette corner-pieces in blind to the boards, cream surface-paper endpapers. Wood-engraved frontispiece of the homra tree. A little rubbed on the boards, spine sunned and with some , lower board detaching contents lightly toned. First edition, uncommon. Churi claimed to have been trained at the "congregation of Propaganda in Rome from 1842 to 18492. He was subsequently in London where he taught Arabic, Latin, Italian and Hebrew". Among his pupils was Captain William Peel, third son of Sir Robert Peel, who had been planning an expedition into the interior of Africa, and "proposed to Churi that they should make a short tour to Egypt, Mount Sinai, Jerusalem, Nazareth, and Syria. They left England on 20 October, and were back by 20 February 1851. On 20 August following they left on the longer and more serious journey. They went up the Nile, across the desert to Khartoum, and on to al-'Ubayd, where they suffered a severe attack of fever and ague. Peel returned to England early in January" (ODNB). Both men wrote accounts of their experiences during this second trip, Peel in A Ride through the Nubian Desert (1852) and Churi in the present work.

        A series of sketches in the Black Sea

      [London]: "Dickinson Bros., Her Majesty's publishers, n.d.". [ca. 1853]. "First edition, oblong folio, 13 hand-colored lithograph plates consisting of two large folding panoramas (the first in 3 panels measuring 14½ x 58½"" and the second in 4 panels measuring 14½ x 79½""), and 11 plates on 9 sheets each measuring 14½"" x 22"", (2 with 2 views); no text save for the original brown printed wrappers, worn and with breaks at the fold. Apparently issued in 3 parts, but in this copy, as in both the Abbey and the Atabey copies, ""Part 2"" has been amended in ink to read ""Part 2 & 3."" Likely Part 3 was never completed as such. The price on each of the wrappers states ""21s. plain - 31s 6d colored."" Hyde served in the Crimea; he was killed in 1854 while storming a Russian fort on the Black Sea. Very rare. OCLC locates only the copies at Vassar and Brown and the only copy at auction since 1976 was the Atabey copy which brought £28,680 in 2002. Abbey 234 (tinted only). Atabey, 924. Atabey Sale, 904. "

        The Paradise Lost of Milton

      London: Printed for Henry Washbourne & Co.,, 1853. Small quarto (273 x 177 mm). Contemporary brown half hard-grain morocco, richly gilt spine, purple cloth sides, all edges gilt, yellow coated endpapers. 24 mezzotint plates by John Martin, with tissue guards intact. Binding a little rubbed, sides patchily faded, occasional foxing to margins of plates, otherwise a very good copy, clean and with rich impressions of the plates. First published in a large quarto edition in 1825-27 and in the present format in 1827; this edition is uncommon: Copac records only 2 copies (Cambridge, Oxford), and OCLC adds a further 14. "The apocalyptic romanticism of [Martin's] conceptions had many sources: the monumental buildings of London, the engravings of Piranesi, the many recently published volumes of eastern views, even incandescent gas, coalpit accidents, and Brunel's new Thames Tunnel. The resulting illustrations may be heterogeneous, but they are also unforgettable" (Gordon Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England, pp. 44-45). William Feaver, in ODNB, notes that "mezzotint is a medium peculiarly suited to Manichaean fantasies: the black void of the prepared plate, blackness scraped away to create forms and highlights. Paradise Lost... was ideal material for Martin, who echoed Milton's solemnity while opening out his cadences in the imagery of groves and chases bathed in silvery light and an underworld where fires tongue the darkness and bridges span nothingness and Satan's armies infest the gloom. In mezzotint Martin's vision thrived".

        Twenty-Seven Years in Canada West or The Experience of an Early Settler.First Edition.

      Richard Bentley, London, 1853, - STRICKLAND, Major, [Samuel]. Twenty-Seven Years in Canada West or The Experience of an Early Settler. Edited by Agnes Strickland. London: Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street, Publisher in Ordinary to Her Majesty, 1853. First Edition. TWO VOLUMES IN ONE. Pp. (2),[ix]-xix,(1),[1]-311,(1), (2),[iii]-viii,[1]-344. 8vo, pressed decorated original red cloth, gilt lettering, tooling, and decoration to spine. TPL 3213, Watters p.584. A lovely copy of one of the most authoritative accounts of nineteenth-century Canadian pioneer life. "No one can give an adequate view of the general life of a colonist, unless he has been one himself. Unless he has experienced all the various gradations of colonial existence, from that of the pioneer in the backwoods and the inhabitant of a shanty, up to the epoch of his career, when he becomes the owner, by his own exertions, of a comfortable house and well-cleared farm, affording him the comforts and many of the luxuries of civilization, he is hardly competent to write on such a subject. [.] The Canadian settler possesses vast social advantages over other colonists. He has no convict neighbours -- no cruel savages, now, to contend with -- no war -- no arid soil wherewith to contend. The land is, generally speaking, of a rich quality, and the colonist has fire-wood for the labour of cutting, fish for the catching, game for the pleasant exercise of hunting and shooting in Nature's own preserves, without the expense of a license, or the annoyance of being warned off by a surly gamekeeper." - from the preface. New front free end paper, chip to bottom right corner due to poor cut-job to fore-edge of pp. I:xvii-xix, a few instances of sparse foxing, else a very good, tidy, bright, tight copy. 1,250.00 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

I called at your fathers in a sleigh and was ushered into the parlour where I was kindly recieved by your mother who had a child or two about her; probably yourself for one. Beside the fireplace sat a tall odd looking personage in misty black who made me a very formal salutation. He sat gazing intently at me while I was conversing with your mother and at length delivered himself of some very erudite and sententious truisms ...""In the course of my expedition with your [father] we crossed from the mainland to Marthas Vin[yard] in an open boat in another moist weather. [While] warming ourselves at a public house near the landing a tall lank fellow came in from fishing or boating, with a woe begone face an[d] dripping like a Mer man. He took off a Stov[e] hat soaking wet, that being about his head like the ears of an elephant and giving a whisk wi[th] it that nearly put out the fire just beginning to kindle 'I wish I was cleverly dead!"" cried he. 'I don?t care how cleverly you die, my friend replied your father, 'but I'd thank you not to kill the fire.' It was during this expedition that I gave your father the razors you speak of; which, however keen they may be, were nothing to compare in keenness to the wintery blasts we encountered ...""Boston antiquarian John Tucker Prince (1806-1891) was the son of Capt.

Finely bound in three-quarter dark green polished calf and green marbled boards, with five raised bands to the spine, contrasting black title label lettered in gilt to the spine, ruled in blind and gilt, teal marbled endpapers. Very good or better, with rubbing to the boards and corners, tiny split to the rear hinge at the spine tail, spine lightly starting inside the covers but secure, otherwise sturdy binding, former owner's book plate to the front pastedown, bright plates lacking the usual toning and spotting, a few minor spots to the endpapers and scattered throughout the otherwise fresh text. Overall, a bright and attractive copy in a lovely binding. Smith I 10. Similar to most of Dickens' works, Bleak House, his ninth novel, was originally published serially in nineteen monthly installments in a total of twenty parts (one double issue) from March 1852 - September 1853. Often regarded as one of Dickens' finest novels, Bleak House follows the long-running Court of Chancey case Jarndyce v. Jarndyce, a complicated lawsuit that involves almost every class of English society, and heavily criticizes the moral shortcomings of the British judicial system. With Bleak House, illustrator Browne continued his experimental use of dark plates, of which there are ten - a significant increase from the singular dark plates in his preceding two novels Dombey and Son (1848) and David Copperfield (1850). Additionally, Browne continued the use of horizontal illustrations in Bleak House, another technique he began with Dombey, with almost half of the illustrations being in this layout. A Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone.. Illus. by Browne, Hablot Knight. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

It is held to be one of Dickens's finest novels, containing one of the most vast, complex and engaging arrays of minor characters and sub-plots in his entire canon. The story is told partly by the novel's heroine, Esther Summerson, and partly by a mostly omniscient narrator. Memorable characters include the beautiful and haughty Lady Honoria Dedlock, holding a dark secret buried in her breast, the menacing lawyer Tulkinghorn, the friendly but reflective and realistic John Jarndyce, and the childish and disingenuous Harold Skimpole, as well as the happy-go-lucky but imprudent Richard Carstone. Background:Charles John Huffam Dickens (7 February 1812 ?" 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period.During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular.Hablot Knight Browne (12 July 1815 ?" 8 July 1882) was an English artist, famous as Phiz, illustrator of books by Charles Dickens, Charles Lever and Harrison Ainsworth.Condition:Condition is Good/Very Good.  Some wear to edges, bookplate, marks to leather, spine gold a little dulled, some usual blemishing to plates/frontispiece, text pages are very good, hinges/text block are very good for over 160 years old!!!

        Map of Central America, with the Adjacent parts of North & South America, and the West Indies. Shewing the Lines of Communication Between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Proposed and in Progress. [with] Topographical Map of a Portion of the Isthmus of Darien in Site of Proposed Inter-Oceanic Navigation, August, 1852

      London: Saunders & Stanford, [c.1853].. Two maps folding between early blue ribbed cloth covers, gilt lettered to the spine, the first map 46 x 63 cm, the second 36 x 50 cm, both with original hand colouring and mounted on linen, manuscript titles on the folded end sections, one side with the letterpress accession bookplate of the Adelphi Club of London indicating the maps' donation by a Dr. Black in January, 1869, the club's oval stamp repeated to the several of the panels of the linen verso. The spine of the covers neatly repaired, else very good. For centuries the burgeoning global trade had prompted investigations into the practicalities of a route over land or by water across the Isthmus of Panama, the shortest land bridge between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Gisborne had undertaken various large civil engineering projects in Great Britain and Ireland in the 1840s and was commissioned to travel to Panama to look into the feasibility of building a ship canal in the early 1850s. Though this expedition met with little success, he was able to produce a book - "The Isthmus of Darien in 1852..." - and these maps. He took part in a better prepared and supported expedition in 1854 and the conclusion of those researches deemed that the construction of a navigable canal was entirely impractical. The building of the Panama Railway was completed soon after and in the 1880s the French - emboldened by the success of their construction of the Suez Canal - endeavoured to resurrect the concept of the ship canal. Beset by the sheer physical hardship of building such a monumental work in such an inhospitable environment the French enterprise failed. The work was subsequently completed by the U.S. in the early 20th century and the Panama Canal finally opened in 1914.

        A History of the Sikhs, from the Origin of the Nation to the Battles of the Sutlej

      London: John Murray, , 1853. Second Edition. With the Author's Last Corrections and Additions. Octavo. Original reddish-brown embossed cloth, title gilt to spine. Map frontispiece, coloured in outline, similar folding map, folding genealogical table. Slightly rubbed and soiled, neatly recased with new cream endpapers, contents a little browned, but a very good copy. First published 1849, this edition with the author's final additions and elucidations. A work described by Khurana as the "high-water mark" of British historiography on the Sikhs, which "won for Sikhism an assured place in the history of mankind". Although a critical and popular success, this book was to be the cause of the premature end to a highly successful military career. Cunningham passed through Addiscombe and Chatham attracting high praise at both establishments, passing out of the former with the prize for mathematics and the sword for good conduct. On reaching India he was appointed to the staff of General Macleod, then chief engineer in the Bengal presidency. In 1837 he became assistant to Sir Claud Wade, political agent on the Sikh frontier, a position he continued to hold under Wade's successors, G. Russell Clark and Colonel Richmond. During his time in the area he developed a profound knowledge of the manners and customs of the Sikh people which placed him in great demand at the time of the outbreak of the First Sikh War. He served on the staff of Napier, Gough and finally Sir Harry Smith, seeing action at Buddawal and Aliwal. When Smith joined the main army he was attached to the staff of Sir Henry Hardinge, to whom he acted as an additional aide-de-camp at the battle of Sobraon. For his services he was promoted to captain by brevet in December 1845, and at the conclusion of the war appointed by Hardinge to the lucrative position of political agent to Bhopal. In the comparative leisure afforded by this posting he had time to write the present history which assured his name as a historian, but led to his fall from grace with his superiors. His assertion that Lal Singh and Tej Singh had been bribed during the First Sikh War was challenged by Hardinge and Sir Henry Lawrence and in 1850 Cunningham was removed from his agency and returned to regimental duty. Within a year he had died at Umballa aged only 39. The present edition contains an introductory advertisement by his brother Peter, who saw the edition through the press, which contains what could be seen as a fitting epitaph for the author; "The author fell victim to the truth related in this book. He wrote History in advance of his time, and suffered for it; but posterity will, I feel assured, do justice to his memory".

        Suite of 29 original drawings for Bleak House

      London: Bradbury and Evans,, 1853. Comprising 29 drawings of various sizes (generally about 110 × 175 mm) in pencil and watercolour, individually mounted on sunk mounts, hinged, in a late 19th-century album. The album oblong folio (310 × 240 mm), dark blue morocco, front cover with large metal monogram (comprising initials C, E, I, and G), fore edge with brass lock and key, edges red. Together with a copy of the published book in 19/20 original parts, octavo, original pictorial wrappers. Frontispiece, vignette title-page, and 38 engraved plates (including 10 "dark" plates) by H. K. Browne. As usual, there is some variation in the make-up of the inserted advertisements from the exhaustive collation of the ideal copy provided by Hatton & Cleaver; however, "The Village Pastor" booklet in Part 15, described by Hatton & Cleaver as "rather scarce" and "often wanting" is here present. Book label in Part 1 of Mortimer L. Schiff (1877?-1931). Wrappers a little chipped at spine ends as often, plates with marginal oxidisation as usual, a very good set. Hablot Knight Browne (1815?-1882) is the illustrator most closely associated with Dickens: he even changed his pseudonym to Phiz to harmonize with Dickens's Boz. His achievement in rescuing the ill-fated images for Pickwick Papers established his reputation, and he continued to illustrate the majority of Dickens's full-length novels until the end of the 1850s. The illustrations to Bleak House show him at the zenith of his powers. Thirty-nine Phiz illustrations were originally published with the book's serialization in 1852?-3. The present collection of 29 drawings, which remained unknown to Kitton, was sold at auction in 1922 for £480. The collection was then described as being accompanied by a letter (no longer present) dated 1 July 1878, reading: "Dear Sir, The sketches which I have forwarded to you, are those which my father (Hablot K. Browne) made for his etchings to 'Bleak House', which I received direct from his hands. I am, Dear Sir, yrs. Faithfully, W. G. N. Browne." The collection was subsequently acquired by the noted collector Mortimer L. Schiff (1877?-1931), remaining in the possession of his heirs after his death. One other set of Phiz drawings for this title is known to us, a complete set of drawings for the originals, including the frontispiece and vignette title, formerly in the collection of the Duchess of St Albans, together with similar suites for David Copperfield and Dombey and Son. These were sold by Sotheby's, 20 Nov. 1899, lots 826?-8, to Sabin, who paid £360 for the Bleak House drawings. All three collections are now in the Elkins Collection, Free Library of Philadelphia. That the present collection includes drawings done before publication is indicated by the artist's instruction on the illustration for "Mr Guppy's Entertainment", "Bite it all a shade darker H.K.B." In other respects, the drawings mostly conform to the final published versions, with the notable exceptions of the design for "Visitors to the Shooting Galley", which is quite different, and the dramatic drawing of "The Mausoleum at Chesney Wold", which is apparently unpublished in this version. The album of original drawings is offered together with a copy of the first edition in the original parts, which appeared in 20 numbers, bound in 19 monthly parts, the last forming a double number, from March 1852 to September 1853. "Writing at the height of his powers, Dickens adopts a virtuoso form of double narration, and the novel has since the middle of the twentieth century been widely acclaimed as his greatest work" (ODNB).

        A well-written journal of a Pacific Whaling voyage from the bark Prudent of Stonington, Connecticut, 1853-1855

      Various, December 20, 1853 - May 30, 1855. 8" x 12.25". "Manuscript log of the bark Prudent of Stonington, Connecticut, 90 leaves (approx.), 8"" x 12.25"", [various places], December 20, 1853 to May 30, 1855, bound in speckled boards, recording the voyage of the whaling bark Prudent of Stonington, Connecticut in Pacific Ocean, China, and the Okhotsk Sea recording whale hunts and blubber processing, weather conditions and navigational readings. Rubbing and wear to boards, one hinge loose, front and rear pastedowns restored with acid-free paper, slight soiling to pages, else very good to fine condition. A superb log recording a year-and-a-half journey to the Pacific, Hong Kong, the Russian coast and beyond. The voyage opens in the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), stopping in Guam for fresh sweet potatoes and bananas before continuing on to Hong Kong where the bark remained a week while calkers went over the ship. Turning north toward the [with period spellings retained], ""Strait of Corea,"" the bark continued through ""the Perouser [La Pérouse] Strait"" and the ""Japan Sea."" From there, they sailed on the ""Ochotsk Sea [Okhotsk],"" where they began sighting whales with more frequency. The entry for that day begins with the whale sighting at 2 p.m. They then ""chaste the whale to the south untill 6 P.M. the whale then turned to the North at 7 P.M."" They finally killed the whale and ""at 3 A.M. got the whale to the ship by towing."" Three days later it is recorded that they had ""stowed down 80 barrels of oil."" In the days that followed are recorded details of the crew working on deck (""boiling,"" ""stowing oil,"" etc.) and various sightings of whales, as well as some unsuccessful hunts. In the entry dated June 20, the log records other vessels and the numbers of whales each had harvested; for example, the S.H. Waterman, ""8 whales 835 barrels""; ""the Ship Mary of Nantucket 2 whales . . ."" Near the Shantar Islands, the ship spotted more whales, but the ice was an impediment. ""Whaling the most of the time in the ice saw a number of whales verry wilde. seven ships in site [June 25]."" On the 27th is written, ""This day saw 2 whales with small calves in the ice.""On June 30 while still in the ""Shantar Bay,"" the log underscores the intense competition for whales: ""Saw a number of whales. The water covered with ships and boats, twenty boats after one whale."" According to the log, the Prudent killed the whale and ""anchored"" it, but the Mary of Nantucket ""came and claimed the whale. After examining the whale found one of her Irons in the whale he had been fast sum time be for and cut his line. . . . he had not sene the whalt after cutting the line untill my boats had turned the whale. The whale spouted no blood nor shode no sines of a fast whale by my officers until my boat got fast. I went on board the Mary thinking Capt. Sire was a Gentleman and wold give me half of the whale. As there was no prospects of his finding or gitting fast to his whale but through us. but he sade his craft was in the whale and he clamed it and it was no more then my duty what I had dun. So I left him loosing all my mornings work."" As the log continues, the Prudent returns southwest toward the ""Sandwich Islands"" where ""From the 27th of Octo the Bark has been ling at anchor up to the 22nd of Novr in the mean time we have fitted and painted ship discharged all the men but the two first officers and paid them off. Shipped a new Crew 19 men all told and am ready for sea. Thare has ben a bout one hundred & forty whale ships at anchor here."" Upon departing Hawaii, the Prudence headed due south to Tahiti (""Otaheite""), before heading for Cape Horn, which they rounded (eschewing the safer but tedious Straits of Magellan) in late February 1855 encountering rough seas and gales typical to that dangerous passage. Then the bark continued to the northward, ""bound for Stonington."" The journal ends while the bark was still at sea, in the Atlantic Ocean just to the northwest of Bermuda en route for the New England Coast."
