        47 Upper Canada Road Maintenance manuscript receipts collection (Mono Township)

      Mono: Mono Township, UC, 1853. 1st Edition. No binding. Good. 47 small pieces of legal signed document for road maintenance and repairs from 1853- 1856 in Mono Township.These 47 documents vary in size and condition with an average size of 7" x 3 " and average condition good however a number of old water stains to sides. Virtually all are docketed with a number and or description and many are signed by the person receiving payment.A fascinating collection of pre-confederation documents relating to the building and improved roads infrastructure in Upper Canada, specifically Mono Townships which is just north of Orangeville. Some background on road maintenance receipts such as these 1853-63 ones issued primarily relating in Mono, Upper Canada. These Mono Township receipts were for the regular form of "statute labour" performed by able bodied men acting under an overseer (ie, for the township.) The Upper Canadian government assisted with the cost of improving some of the major roads (eg. Yonge Street, Dundas Street, Kingston Rd) as early as 1833, but that was only after a direct request for assistance from the city of Toronto and York Township. Otherwise, roads within the townships. Road maintenance was done by all able bodied men (aged 16-60) within the township. And the township was divided up into "road divisions," each one being the responsibility of an "overseer of highways" for that division. He was appointed/elected to the post at the first township meeting in the New Year, and would have served for a year. It was the responsibility of the overseer to make sure that all men performed their "statute labor" on the roads. He would keep track of the men, and if any didn't perform their statute labour, the overseer was empowered to fine them for non-performance of their duties. The overseer would be paid a modest fee for his work, and he could also charge certain expenses to the township (eg. gravel, bridge repairs, blacksmithing work &c.) For example, some receipts offered are pay receipts for a road overseer, as well as expenses being paid to three men (for goods or services not specified), and for a bailiff or deputy to summon a jury. Starting in the 1840s, government legislation permitted the formation of "joint stock companies." So starting around 1845 and after, private companies were formed such as the "Yorkville and Vaughan Plank Road Company," which were legally allowed to collect tolls on roads. It was expected that a certain amount of the money collected would be used for paving and maintaining the road, and any amount over and above what was spent would be profits for the company. The companies would be audited every so often, to ensure that they maintained the roads in exchange for the tolls collected. The Cottage Tollgate in Toronto, now a museum, is an example of toll collecting. The tolls were unpopular, and by the 1890s the companies and their tollgates were fast disappearing from the landscape. Around 1914-17, the province of Ontario introduced its "good roads" legislation, after which time almost all of the private toll road companies folded up and went out of business.

Henry Grey was appointed to lead the Colonial Office during the administration of Lord John Russell. He made some successes in in North America, but remained less enthusiastic towards the Australian colonies.'Their convict origins, their very recent establishment and their unfortunate lack of outstanding governors combined to make him uninstructed and high-handed in his Australian policies. The lack of sympathy between Grey and Sir Charles FitzRoy was particularly significant' (ADB). Appendices include correspondence between Grey and Charles Fitzroy.

        Die drei Parzen und Amor

      1853/1873 1853/1873. Feder, Aquarell und Weißhöhung auf Papier, auf Unterlage montiert, innerhalb der Darstellung auf dreiteiliger Banderole bezeichnet: "Eros als Sie= / ger über Alles, was da lebt und / webt, bekannt, selber nimmt er hier die Scheere / aus der Hand!"; auf dem Sockel bezeichnet: "zum / 21t Aug. / 1873 [darunter das getilgte Datum "23t Juni / 1853" schwach erkennbar]. / JH [ligiert]". Unten rechts datiert: "24t Juni 53. / Johannistag." Auf der Unterlage mittig oberhalb der Darstellung ein goldgehöhtes Rankenornament mit den Ziffern "18", "23" und "73"; unterhalb der Szene mittig innerhalb einer Kartusche in zwei Zeilen bezeichnet: "Die auch das Alter noch verjüngt, / Liebe, selbst den Tod bezwingt!" mit goldgehöhten Versalien sowie darunter ebenfalls mittig in Ligatur monogrammiert und datiert: "18JPH73", Blatt: 26,3 x 21,2 cm; Unterlage: 45,2 x 33,5 cm. Hochgebildet und literarisch-historisch ambitioniert, zielte der in den 1820er Jahren als Exponent der Düsseldorfer Schule bekanntgewordene "dichtende Maler"1 Julius Hübner seit den fünfziger Jahren darauf, sich wissenschaftlich wie poetisch zu profilieren, wobei gelegentlich beides in eines floss. Nicht zuletzt gesellschaftliche Anlässe aller Art gaben ihm Gelegenheit, Proben seines Talents zu liefern, so dass es nach seiner Berufung an die Elbe "bald kein Fest privater oder öffentlicher Art [gab], zu dessen Glanz er nicht durch Transparente, Entwürfe zu lebenden Bildern und später eben besonders durch seine stets bereite dichterische Begabung beigetragen hätte."2 Ihr ließ er auch mit der Allegorie auf die Allmacht der Liebe freien Lauf und verband wie selbstverständlich lyrische und bildende Künste, deren "Gesetze" er bösen Zungen zufolge schon im malerischen Schaffen "[n]ie ganz deutlich [...] voneinander zu trennen" wusste. Halb Sockelplastiken, halb lebenden Bildern ähnlich, besetzen die Parzen - rechts Lachesis, die den Lebensfaden bemisst, und die ihn unabänderlich zerschneidende Atropos im Zentrum - die Stufen eines monumentalen Kandelabers, auf dessen Spitze das Feuer ewiger Liebe brennt, während Klotho, die links am Postament lehnende Jüngste der den Weg des Menschen zwischen Wiege und Grab bestimmenden Schicksalsgöttinnen, mit Rocken und Spindel das Garn dreht und erstaunt die Attacke des geflügelten Liebesgottes auf das fatale Handeln ihrer ältesten Schwester betrachtet: Handstreichartig sich neben ihr niederlassend, fällt Amor der Vorsehung in den Arm, indem er der runzligen Atropos die Wange glättet, um der ob solcher Schmeichelei konsternierten Alten mit der Linken unversehens jene "böse Schere" (Schiller, 1782) zu entwinden, mit der sie entschlossen war, ein Leben zu besiegeln. Das Überraschungsmoment löst die von der sandsteinernen Farbigkeit unterstrichene Gebundenheit der Szene naturalistisch' auf. Wie der unerbittliche Ernst des im antiken Mythos gebannten, doch allgegenwärtigen Todesbildes durch die erotische Avance romantisch- scherzhaft in märchenhafte Utopie überführt ist, resultiert der malerische Effekt der statuarischen Komposition aus den Helldunkelwerten der sparsam gesetzten Schraffur, vor allem aber aus den fast fiebrig flimmernd hervorstechenden Weißhöhungen der michelangelesken Figuren und ihrer historistisch-neubarocken Sockelarchitektur. Wessen Hinscheiden Amor hier abzuwenden verstand, lässt die für Hübner typisch von schlankem Astwerk gerahmte Allegorie indes ebenso offen wie die im Hinblick auf die Doppeldatierung zwingende Frage, zu welchem Anlass die alles besiegende Liebe 1873 erneut Verwendung fand

        A Children's Summer

      London: Addey and Co., 1853. First edition. Oblong folio. Original fine-grained blue cloth with bold gilt lettering on cover, maroon cloth spine. Original yellow endsheets with inscription dated 1853. Eleven etchings on steel by E. V. B. 'illustrated in prose and rhyme by M.L.B. and W.M.C. Full-page impressed plates, EVB's magnum opus, these illustrations represent her finest output in book illustration. Rodney Engen describes her as the "only competent woman illustrator, draughtsman to emerge before 1860," and Gordon Ray points out "[EVB] has as unmistakable style as that of any Victorian illustrator. Boyle had a close association with the Pre-Raphaelites, and it is hard to miss the early style influences from Millais, Arthur Hughes and Burne-Jones. In fact, Rossetti decided to illustrate Allingham's famed "Music Master" only because the poem which Allingham suggested he use as a source had already been so perfectly captured in an illustration in "Child's Play," EVB's first book published in the proceeding year. Covers worn and discoolored, spine worn. Hinges loose. But all present and plates generally clean and bright, and an exceedingly scarce survival for what is now considered one of the classic illustrated books of the mid-1800's in England. No copies on net and only a few auction records for this rare title.

        Life of Elizabeth Fry... Life of Elizabeth Fry, compiled from her Journal, as edited by her daughter, and from various other sources

      London: W. and F.G. Cash, 1853. Octavo; an excellent copy in contemporary polished calf gilt, covers slightly marked and corners bumped, bookplate of Frank M.C. Forster. Attractively bound copy of the standard contemporary biography of Elizabeth Fry, the charismatic Quaker minister and prison reformer.Her interest in the deplorable plight of prisoners began at an early age, most notably after she visited Newgate Prison in 1813. From then on she devoted herself to bettering conditions for prisoners and convicts. Her impact on the transportation system was remarkable, from changing the way prisoners were conducted to the docks from open wagons amongst jeering crowds to closed hackney coaches, to organising women on board to occupy themselves with needlework so that they would have a commodity to sell at ports of call and on arrival in New South Wales.Susanna Corder was also a Quaker, and a rather prolific author of religious works.

        Essai sur l'Inegalite des Races Humaines

      Paris & Hanover: Firmin Didot freres & Rumpler,, 1853-1855. 4 volumes, octavo (214 × 128 mm). Contemporary French red quarter morocco, decorative gilt spines, red morocco-grain cloth boards, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. A little foxing. All half-titles present. A very attractive set of this very scarce work, according to En francais dans le texte only 500 sets were printed. First edition of Gobineau's magnum opus and a work which made a deep and dark impression on European thought and action, albeit one "quite disproportionate to its scholarly insignificance and inconsequential argumentation" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Gobineau (1816-1882) "proclaimed the theory, since entirely disproved, that "race" is a permanent and immutable phenomenon, and he proclaimed the unchallengeable superiority of the white race over all others (...) This farrago of biological nonsense, wishful romanticism and imperialistic dreams was lapped up eagerly by French and German intellectuals" (PMM). The influence on German thinkers and artists such as Nietzsche and Wagner led to Gobineau's theories feeding down to Hitler and the Nazis.

        Proof copy of Missa [quattuor vocum ad aequales concinente organo], the vocal parts (for Tenore I-II and Basso I-II) . Tenore I-II with a long autograph note in pencil by Franz Liszt, initialled "FL", and 32 autograph additions in the parts, with a few corrections in another hand

      [Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel, 1853]. First edition. 4 parts, 11 pages each, quarto, engraved. Liszt's marks are additions to the parts regarding dynamics and agogics, as he states in his note: "I did not look through the parts in detail. I have full confidence in the very kind precision of your corrector. FL" ["Die einzelnen Stimmen habe ich nicht durchgeshen. Ich verlasse mich aber mit gänzlicher Zuversicht auf die sehr liebenswerthe Genauigkeit Ihres Correctors FL"]. Liszt's markings are important interpretative prescriptions he wanted to add to the already engraved work, perhaps as a result of a recent performance. These additions are capable of changing the musical sense in several places, since signs such as poco ritenuto -- a tempo," "rallentando," and "smozando" elucidate the musical structure. This Mass was originally composed in 1848 for the church of Szekszard in Hungary (the first draft without organ), and was dedicated to the Franciscan father Stanislaus Albach, a close friend of Liszt since his youth. The first performance however was not until August 15, 1852 in Weimar, on the occasion of the visit of Louis Napoléon, then President of the French Republic. Liszt had high consideration for this work, which uses Gregorian melodies in the Gloria and the Agnus Dei, and he published revised versions of it in in 1869 and 1870. This Mass represents fully Liszt's split religiosity "imposing on him," as he wrote to Princess Wittgenstein, a style which he knew would displease the ecclesiastical authorities.

        China No 1 (1911) Despatches from Sir A Hosie Forwarding Reports Respecting the Opium Question in China

      London.: His Majesty's Stationery Office.. June1911... Despatches from Sir A.Hosie: 23pp. Original wrappers, lower corners and edges, little creased, very good. Quarto. These papers contain reports on the suppression of opium cultivation in the opium producing provinces of China, assembled by Consul-General Sir Alexander Hosie (1853-1925) one of the leading members of the British consular service in China of his time. They cover the provinces of Shansi, Shensi, and Kansu, together with other reports from Szechuan and Yunnan. Based partly on his own journeys and observations, they also contain contributions from long resident British miss-ionaries in the several provinces. A remarkable change was taking place in China at this time. This is explained in the contemporary account given at pp.409-410 of Samuel Couling?'s Encyclopaedia Sinica (Shanghai, Kelly and Walsh, 1917) which provides the necessary back-ground to Hosie?'s reports. There had been a gradual spread of opium cultivation within China and Manchuria in the later 19th century, with a shift in both public consumption and taste away from the Indian opium imported largely by British and Indian firms from the 18th century on. At the same time, a strong anti-opium movement had been developing in China during the final decades of the Manchu dynasty, and by 1906 had obliged the Court to issue an edict ordering the abolition of opium smoking within ten years. Also, and in the same year, the British parliament had entered into a ten year agreement with China whereby the export of opium from India was to be reduced by one-tenth annually, in return for a similar reduction in opium production there. An Inter-national Opium Commission sat at Shanghai in 1909 and agreed to assist China in its efforts to stop opium trade and cultivation, and it met again at The Hague in 1911. Both the movement and the change of attitude among officials and people were genuine. Hosie himself considered that ?"No question has ever stirred the Chinese Empire so profoundly as that of opium suppression?", and the detailed reports contained in these papers seem to bear this out. By then, too, Couling added, a stigma was now being universally attached to opium smoking. Unfortunately, the change of government brought about by the Chinese Revolution of 1911-12, and the Warlord Era which followed would disrupt the work: but even so, Britain discontinued the export of Indian opium before the ten year agreement had ended. Couling?'s Encyclopaedia Sinica was reprinted by Oxford University Press, Hong Kong in 1983. .
