        Verdant Green, An Oxford Freshman": Pencil drawing, signed "Cuthbert Bede- 1853" lower left

      n.p, 1853 - A popular Victorian literary character was Mr. Verdant Green, an Oxford Freshman, hero of several books written and illustrated by a Midland vicar, Rev. Edward Bradley (1827-1889) under the pen-name of Cuthbert Bede. Bradley had learned wood-engraving from no less than George Cruikshank, but, as Houfe notes, "remained very much the amateur, illustrating his own books-and others in a jolly and careless style." He also drew for Punch, and "was one of the first illustrators to satirise photography." This drawing, jolly and careless, shows two sketches of the hapless freshman unsuccessfully defending a wicket--the drawings appear in more finished wood-engraved form on pages 100-101 of The Adventures of Mr. Verdant Green-- and a more formal portrait, done in the year in which The Adventures first appeared, thus making it an Oxford, literary, and cricket item all in one Image 9-1/2 x 12 inches; attractively gilt-framed, with lettered French mat, 17-1/2 x 19-1/2 inches overall. . .

        Wild Flowers

      London:: The Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge,, 1853.. First edition. Cloth. Near Fine/. Near Fine Condition. Folio (11.5 x 14 inches, 292 x 355 mm). Original publisher's cloth with floral blind embossed decoration and gilt lettering to cover. Skillfully rebacked with gilt-lettered spine. Lower corners slightly bumped, otherwise a very nice copy. Faint owner's signature dated 1854 on ff. Pp. 96, fully illustrated. Every leaf has two separate colored wood-engraved botanical illustrations on the top third of the page, with accompanying text below. Anne Pratt (1806-93), a grocer's daughter from Kent and author of Common Things of the Seaside and Our Native Songsters, illustrated all of her botanical books in the spirit of the Victorian Naturalists and successfully merged the study of botany with romantic flower-lore. Wild Flowers is Miss Pratt's first botanical work. In 1855, she produced her hallmark work on British Flora: The Flowering Plants and Ferns of Great Britain. (Blunt p. 236).

        Report of an Expedition down the Zuni and Colorado Rivers

      Robert Armstrong, DC 1853 - Senate Ex. Doc. 59, 32d Congress, 2nd Session. 1st, bound in 3/4 leather by an unknown binder; name "N.H. Walley" stamped at bottom of spine. Good only; both boards are loose, and have been held in place with new cords by a binder (in other words, not completely restored). Marbled paper of covers is heavily rubbed. A triangular piece at the top of the spine is threatening to chip off. Inside things are better. This copy belonged to Ruthven Deane (1851-1934), famous ornithologist, scholar and bookplate collector; his bookplate is on the marbled front pastedown. (The endpapers are split at the hinges front and back.) He was an early President of the Illinois Audubon Society, which preceded the National Audubon Society. On the first of 2 blank pages is the signature "Ruthven Deane, 1.Mch.1849." Beneath this, in a different pen, he had begun to write "List of birds" but the ink was bleeding, so he wrote on a thick card, "List of birds by Dr. S.W. Woodhouse on page 58, Also autograph letter of the author. R. Deane." He pasted this card in, along with a newspaper notice of Woodhouse's death, dated 24 Oct. 1904. Samuel Washington Woodhouse (1821-1904; note that both men lived 83 years) lost the use of a finger to a rattlesnake bite on this expedition; apparently his companions advised him that the best treatment was to stay drunk all night. The AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED by Woodhouse is tipped in at p. 58, where his section on birds begins; he also wrote the section on Mammals, and the Medical Report. It was written to Mr. Deane in Philadelphia on May 28th, 1900, and concerns an upcoming trip to Boston on the way to Maine. There is scattered but minimal foxing in the text. The plates (with the usual 1st-state numbering problems) are very clean, with only a bit of toning around the edges. Plates 13-21 of Plants have some foreedge tears, and some upper corners creased. The large map is in about good plus condition; several tears at its hinge have been repaired, and there are a number of sm. holes where folds intersect. It is lightly toned but clean and free of foxing. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Bosquejo economico politico de la isla de Cuba, comprensivo de varios proyectos de prudentes y saludables mejoras que pueden introducirse en su gobierno y administracion.?

      Madrid, Imprenta de D. Manuel Pita, Madera Alta, 1852, and Habana: Imprenta de Barcina, 1853. - Lithograph portrait of author. Tables in text. Lithographic portrait, 420 pp.; 462 pp., (1 blank l.). 2 volumes. 8°, contemporary quarter maroon morocco over decorated boards (slight defect to head of spine of volume II; other very minor wear at extremities), marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges, two leather labels for each volume, gilt letter. Light browning in second volume (but not brittle); first volume clean and crisp. A very good to fine set. "C de E" at foot of each spine. Marginal notes in pencil on title page. 2 volumes. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Torrente begins by discussing the movement for Cuban independence, including British and American attitudes and involvement, and royal decrees of the 1850s regarding Cuba. From vol. I, p. 132 he describes Cuban climate, topography, agriculture, population, transportation, the clergy, justice system, public education, police, and civil government, with particular attention to municipal government and trade with Spain. Volume II is concerned with improving trade, particularly in grains and minerals, and with reforming the monetary system, banks, and the tax system.Mariano Torrente (Barbastro, Huesca, 1792-Havana, 1856) fought in the Peninsular War before being named consul to the Papal States (1815-1822). Named consul at Livorno, he became a close friend of Agustín Iturbide. Torrente's @Historia de la Revolución hispanoamericana, Madrid, 1829-1830, was the first overview of the Latin American independence movements - of which Torrente himself strongly disapproved. Torrente had years of firsthand knowledge of Cuba. He was sent in 1833 to the Tesorería de Rentas de La Habana, remaining there until 1840, and he returned to Cuba for good in 1843, after holding a series of high government positions in Spain. He remained convinced that Spain should attempt to reconquer its former Latin American colonies.Among Torrente's many published works are several dealing with Cuba: @Proyecto de contribución, 1838; @Opúsculo sobre la Hacienda de la isla de Cuba, 1840; @Cuestión importante sobre la esclavitud, 1841; and @Memoria sobre la esclavitud, 1841.---- Trelles III, 239-40.

        The Famous Clockmaker Silas Hoadley Writes To The President Of A Railroad, Asking Him To Reroute A Line: ?The Road Down The Brook From My Place To Waterville Could Not Consistently Be Blocked Up So As To Prevent The Travel?It Is Practicable To Change The Road East Of R. Road, But It May Not Be Acceptable?

      ALS. 1pg. 7 ¾? x 12 ½?. March 31, 1853. Plymouth [Connecticut]. A rare autograph letter signed ?Silas Hoadley? to James M. Bunce, the president of the Hartford, Providence and Fishkill Railroad: ?Would state in reply to yours of the 26th inst that have had a conference this day with Mr. Bronson (1st Select Man of Waterbury) and several others who expressed the opinion that the road down the brook from my place to Waterville could not consistently be blocked up so as to prevent the travel, that appears to be there general impression so far as my enquiries have extended. As I remarked in my former letter, it is practicable to change the road east of R. Road, but it may not be acceptable. I see no way to come to any decision or any thing useful, but for those in authority to come out & act. To move the road east will make about ½ a mile more road to built than to keep the west side of a brook, and after all it may be found the less expensive to keep the west side. All this...may be so, does not pay for the reading and in conclusion would say that a drop in the bucket, or the dust of the balance, would be like the influence in this case. Your humble servt Silas Hoadley?. The letter has three mailing folds and is in very fine condition. I could find no other examples of a Hoadley letter selling at auction.

        The MINER'S TEN COMMANDMENTS.

      Sun Print., (1853), San Francisco: - Text printed p. 4, in 3 columns, with a surrounding border of 11 wood engraved vignettes of mining-camp life, as drawn by Harrison Eastman. Eastman's images portray the temptations which the commandments exhort the miners to resist, such as gambling, drinking, staking false claims, stealing, fighting, lying, etc. "Thou shalt have no other claim than one." "Thou shalt not go prospecting before thy claim gives out." "Thou shalt not steal a pick, or a shovel, or a pan, from thy fellow miner; ." "Thou shalt not tell any false tales about 'good diggings in the mountains' to thy neighbor ." "Thou shalt not commit unsuitable matrimony." So declares 'The Miner's Ten Commandments.' These divine rules of the California Gold Rush came about in the early 1850s, when keeping the Sabbath became a point of issue in Placerville [and other mining regions]. Such religious observance was favored by James Hutchings, but not so by many other residents. Their lack of spiritual reverence was lampooned, along with many other shady miner practices, by Hutchings in this famous, and subsequently oft- imitated, parody of the Ten Commandants. The work was first published 4 June 1853 in the Placerville Herald, and this the first separate publication. For more detailed history of this piece, see Kruska's HUTCHINGS, Chapter 5. Subtle age toning to extremities. Fold lines, which are a bit tender & starting at the edges. Still, a respectable VG copy. 11-1/4" x 9-1/4". 1st separate issue (Baird 167; Clifford 180). 1 sheet of lined, light blue laid paper, folded once vertically. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin; Presenting the Original Facts and Documents upon which the Story is Founded. Together with Corroborative Statements Verifying the Truth of the Work

      John P. Jewett & Co. Cleveland, Ohio 1853 - Tipped in, mounted to a larger piece of paper, is a slip of paper (5" x 1 1/4") SIGNED by H. B. Stowe (someone has penned the author's name underneath the signature). Original green cloth, with blindstamped borders and title on both front and reasr panels, and gilt lettering and decoration on the spine. The cloth is rubbed, boards exposed at the corners, and the spine ends are frayed with short tears. The pages have some waviness (not from any moisture, but rather from the thin quality of paper used), and there is the occasional soiling. Even with the the wear to the cloth this is a near very good copy of Harriet Beecher Stowe's defense against the attacks and criticism of her work, Uncle Tom's Cabin.
