        ONE OF THE BEST AND CERTAINLY THE FUNNIEST ILLUSTRATED GOLD RUSH LETTERSHEETS; The Miner's Ten Commandments. Composed by Forty-Nine (James M. Hutchings), and illustrated by Harrison Eastman

      San Francisco: Sun Print, 1853. Unbound. Very good. This lettersheet is printed on light blue paper measuring approximately 9.25" x 11.25". The text of the commandments is printed in three centered columns bordered on the right, left, and bottom by ten corresponding vignettes that satirically illustrate each An eleventh vignette, at the top center, features an elephant using its trunk to call a miner's attention to a Ten Commandments broadside that has been posted to the wall of "a clapboard shanty.". Unused and clean with two horizontal and three vertical folds. Minor edge-wear and pinholes at three of the fold junctions. The humorous, tongue-in-cheek, proscriptive Miner's Ten Commandments addressed bad habits, inappropriate behavior, and temptations associated with Gold Rush life: claim jumping, stealing, fighting, gambling, drinking, cheating, lying, etc. (A transcription of the commandments is included.). James M. Hutchings, who had made a fortune in the initial Gold Rush of 1849 but lost it all in a bank failure, first published his parody in the Placerville Herald newspaper in 1853. After it was reprinted as a lettersheet, it proved quite popular with the miners and was so profitable for that he was able to begin publishing his Illustrated California Magazine and amass a fortune once more. An early settler in and fierce promoter of the Yosemite Valley, Hutchings operated the Calaveras Big Tree Grove Hotel. Milford (B-167) notes that this was probably the most popular of the Gold Rush lettersheets. He also notes that the elephant was an allusion an American idiom popularized during the Mexican-American War, "If one has seen the elephant, on has seen it all," which refers to gaining worldly experience at a significant cost. Not often found in condition this nice.

Contemporary brown half sheepskin.

      De Ganay 249; Oxford companion to gardens, pp. 47-52; WorldCat (3 copies). Very rare first and only edition of an attractive suite of lithographs, limited to 150 copies, of the gardens at Beloeil, "the principal example in Belgium of the classical French style". "It was not until the mid-18th century, at Beloeil, that the French classical garden finally gained a firm hold in the Belgian provinces ... the present gardens are the result of rearrangement made for the most part in the mid-18th century under Prince Claude-Lamoral II de Ligne, assisted principally by the French architect Jean-Baptiste Bergé..." (Oxford companion to gardens).The suite is preceded by letterpress text, including a dedicational poem to the Princess de Ligne whose husband, Prince Eugène had commissioned the most recent additions to the gardens which included an orangery and rustic temple. This poem is followed by three parts, respectively describing the estate, the history of the grounds and castle and a brief history of the family. Some minor stains on the first two pages and a few minor spots throughout, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed along the extremities and spine damaged.

        The Twenty-Four Books of the Holy Scriptures. [The Hebrew Bible].

      Philadelphia 371 Walnut Street 1853 - Quarto (28.5 x 25 cm), iv, 1011 pp., 2 blank family record leaves, short closed tear to leaf F3, some light foxing. Contemporary calf gilt, spine in six compartments, red morocco label lettered in gilt to second, raised bands. A very good copy. The first complete translation of the Old Testament by a Jewish translator into English. This work was built upon Leeser's 1845 translation of the five books of the Torah. Previous editions published by Jewish translators in England (such as Levi and Alexander) had simply utilized the King James translation. Leeser's preface explains that this massive undertaking sprung from "a desire entertained for more than a quarter of a century, since the day he quitted school in his native land to come to this country, to present to his fellow-Israelites an English version, made by one of themselves, of the Holy Word of God." Readers would now "have an opportunity to study a version of the Bible which has not been made by the authority of churches in which they have no confidence." Rabbi Isaac Leeser (1806-1868) was born in Germany and emigrated to America in 1824. The head rabbi of the Synagogue Mikveh Israel in Philadelphia, he became America's most influential Jewish writer, editor, and teacher. He promulgated Jewish culture and religious activity in the United States by providing American Jews with the numerous basic religious texts and conceptual tools they needed.

        H. R. 336 [To accompany report no. 421.]

      Washington DC, 1853. United States. Senate. 32nd Congress, 2nd Session. H. R. 336 [To accompany report no. 421.] In the Senate of the United States. February 19, 1853 . . . Amendment . . . 3pp. [Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1853.] 297 x 205 mm. Unbound. Some dampstaining, edges a bit frayed but very good. Docketed. First Edition of this rare ether controversy document, with no copies listed in OCLC. In January 1853, responding to renewed debate over who deserved credit for inventing ether anesthesia, the U. S. Senate appointed a select committee to determine whether W. T. G. Morton, Charles Jackson or Horace Wells had the best claim to the discovery. On February 19 Senator Isaac P. Walker, the committee's chairman, submitted an amendment to army appropriations bill H. R. 336, confirming the U. S. government's right to use and benefit from the discovery and proposing an award of $100,000 to "the discoverer." The final version of the amendment, which we are offering here, also proposed that the issue of priority be decided in federal court, with Morton, Jackson and the representatives of Horace Wells appearing as defendants to prove the merits of their respective cases. The Senate ended up rejecting the amendment, leaving the question of priority unsettled for the time. Wolfe, Tarnished Idol, pp. 316-17; 330-335.

        THE WORKS IN PROSE AND VERSE

      William Pickering, London 1853 - 229 x 152 mm. (9 x 6"). Two volumes. Extremely pleasing contemporary Cambridge-style calf, handsomely gilt, covers with mitered-corner gilt frame formed by plain and decorative rules bounding an inch-wide inlay of lighter tan calf, fleuron cornerpieces extending obliquely from the frame, raised bands, spines densely gilt in compartments with large central fleuron enclosed in a lozenge of small tools and scrolling cornerpieces, each spine with two red morocco labels, densely gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With engraved frontispieces, one a portrait of Herbert, the other a view of Bemerton. Keynes, p. 60 (citing the 1846 printing). Spines faintly sunned (the gilt with a slight loss of brightness), extremities with a bit of rubbing (one spine top with very shallow loss part of the way across), mild marginal foxing to plates, other trivial imperfections, but still quite a pretty set in excellent condition, the text clean and smooth with generous margins, and the decorative bindings completely sound and with nothing approaching a fatal defect. This is a handsomely printed and bound set of the works of 17th century religious poet George Herbert (1593-1633). After serving for a period as a university functionary, Herbert experienced a call to the clergy and thereafter devoted himself to the religious life. In 1630, he received from Charles I the rectory at Bemerton (pictured here in the frontispiece to the second volume), and served there as a dedicated cleric for the remainder of his life. As an outgrowth of his rector's experience, Herbert wrote "The Priest to the Temple," a practical, wise, and often witty manual for the country parson (which occupies half of our first volume). Through this, and especially through his incandescent religious poetry, Herbert became, posthumously, one of the most influential religious figures of the 17th century. Published in 1633, his "The Temple" (occupying the main part of Volume II here) contains some 160 poems, nearly all the verse he wrote, and this work assured his place in the pantheon of early English poets, devotional or otherwise.

      2 p.l., 35 pp. 8vo, modern wrappers. Paris: A. Aubry, 1853. A very rare sale catalogue. Huvé (1783-1852), was a leading architect of his time who was chosen to complete la Madeleine after its original architect, Vignon, died. At the height of his career, Huvé was president of the Société centrale des architectes, professor at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and a member of the Institut, having replaced Charles Percier. He was closely associated with many aristocratic families in France, including that of Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, an employee at Huvé's firm. A staunch adherent of the neoclassical style, he designed hospitals, theaters and churches, many of which still exist to this day. The catalogue of 339 lots describes many of the classic architectural manuals as well as numerous books on the history and architecture of Greece and Rome. There are works on subjects such as hydraulic architecture, construction techniques, the design of monuments and public spaces, and interior decoration. Fine copy. ❧ N.B.G., Vol. 25, cols. 661-62.

        THE WORKS IN PROSE AND VERSE

      London: William Pickering, 1853. n. This is a handsomely printed and bound set of the works of 17th century religious poet George Herbert (1593-1633). After serving for a period as a university functionary, Herbert experienced a call to the clergy and thereafter devoted himself to the religious life. In 1630, he received from Charles I the rectory at Bemerton (pictured here in the frontispiece to the second volume), and served there as a dedicated cleric for the remainder of his life. As an outgrowth of his rector's experience, Herbert wrote "The Priest to the Temple," a practical, wise, and often witty manual for the country parson (which occupies half of our first volume). Through this, and especially through his incandescent religious poetry, Herbert became, posthumously, one of the most influential religious figures of the 17th century. Published in 1633, his "The Temple" (occupying the main part of Volume II here) contains some 160 poems, nearly all the verse he wrote, and this work assured his place in the pantheon of early English poets, devotional or otherwise.. 229 x 152 mm. (9 x 6"). Two volumes. Extremely pleasing contemporary Cambridge-style calf, handsomely gilt, covers with mitered-corner gilt frame formed by plain and decorative rules bounding an inch-wide inlay of lighter tan calf, fleuron cornerpieces extending obliquely from the frame, raised bands, spines densely gilt in compartments with large central fleuron enclosed in a lozenge of small tools and scrolling cornerpieces, each spine with two red morocco labels, densely gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With engraved frontispieces, one a portrait of Herbert, the other a view of Bemerton. Keynes, p. 60 (citing the 1846 printing). Spines faintly sunned (the gilt with a slight loss of brightness), extremities with a bit of rubbing (one spine top with very shallow loss part of the way across), mild marginal foxing to plates, other trivial imperfections, but still quite a pretty set in excellent condition, the text clean and smooth with generous margins, and the decorative bindings completely sound and with nothing approaching a fatal defect.This is a handsomely printed and bound set of the works of 17th century religious poet George Herbert (1593-1633).

        Kasteel Vaeshartelt - Muller + Lemercier, 1853.

      VOGELVLUCHT GEZICHT OP KASTEEL VAESHARTELT?Plan g?n?ral des trois ch?teaux Vaesharteld?, lithografie in kleur vervaardigd na 1853 door Theodore M?ller, uitgegeven door Lemercier te parijs. Afm. (incl. tekst) ca. 46 x 60 cm. In lijst.In 1841 kocht de Maastrichtse industrieel Petrus Regout het 118 hectare grote, van oorsprong middeleeuwse landgoed, in opdracht van koning Willem II om dienst te doen als koninklijk jachtslot. Na de dood van Willem II dood kwam het kasteel in 1851 in handen van Petrus Regout zelf, die het eerst als buitenverblijf, vanaf 1863 als vaste verblijfplaats ging gebruiken. Op een 7 ha groot terrein liet hij vanaf 1853 door de Belgische tuinarchitect J. Gindra een Engelse landschapstuin aanleggen met exotische bomen, ruime gazons waarin bloemperken, vijvers, fonteinen (aangedreven door een stoommachine), prieeltjes en follies lagen. Op korte afstand van Vaeshartelt liet Regout de bestaande villa Klein Vaeshartelt verbouwen. Bomenlanen verbonden Vaeshartelt met andere landgoederen van Petrus Regout in het gebied ten noorden van Maastricht, zoals kasteel Meerssenhoven en La Grande Suisse.Binnen enkele jaren na het overlijden van Petrus Regout in 1878 was het grootste deel van de parkversiering verdwenen. De familie Regout heeft het kasteel enkele generaties in bezit gehad, tot 1953. Daarna was het gebouw enkele tientallen jaren in gebruik als jeugdherberg. Thans is er een luxueus hotel in gevestigd.Op deze imposante prent zien we Groot Vaeshartelt in volle glorie, als het ware in vogelvlucht vanuit de lucht geschilderd. Het Paleisje vormt met de Oostvleugel en het Koetshuis een carr? rondom de eerste Binnenhof. De verlengde Noordvleugel en de schuur vormen met de eeuwenoude tuinmuren een tweede carr?. Nu ligt daarin de Geheime Tuin, toen waren daar de nutstuinen. V??r het kasteel zien we het pas aangelegde park van Gindra met waterpartijen en vijvers. Met de grote en de kleine brug, de pagode met badhuis en bibliotheek, de ijskelder met theekoepel. Rechts het monument voor de Koning. Links het boerderijcomplex. Daarachter: vele hectaren bossen, akkers en velden. De bomenlanen zijn goed zichtbaar en hadden toen dus al een behoorlijke leeftijd. Bij de entree het chalet en het prieel, en in de Weide voor den Pachter het gebouw op palen. Op de voorgrond zien we Klein Vaeshartelt, gelegen aan de grote weg van Maastricht naar Nijmegen. Daarv??r nog de pas aangelegde spoorweg van Maastricht naar Aken. Regout was daarvan ??n van de pioniers.Prijs: ?975,- (incl. lijst).

Er wanderte nach Cuba aus, wo er als Lehrer an der Kunstakademie wirkte.

Bernardo May copied these and issued them between 1851 and 1853 when a plagiarism suit was brought. As the result of the lawsuit, May issued the present chromolithographed versions.
