        Windermere from Orrest Head

      London: Published by Thos. Agnew & Son, 1853. Tinted lithograph with rich publisher's colour. Printed on wove paper. Trimmed to image as issued. In excellent condition with the exception of a small tear in the bottom left corner which has been expertly repaired. 13 1/8 x 19 5/8 inches. A stunning view of Lake Windermere from Orrest Head, from the deluxe portfolio edition of John Baker Pyne's magnificent work "The English Lake District." The Lake District first came to the fore with the rise of the Romantic Movement during the second half of the eighteenth century. The poet William Wordsworth, a native of the district, established the area as the epitome of the ideal landscape, and artists and tourists alike visited the regions natural beauties in search of the Romantic ideal. Poets such as Byron, Shelley, and Keats proclaimed the Lakes as the manifestation of the "Picturesque." By the middle of the nineteenth century, when Pyne visited the area, the Lakes were well established in the national consciousness as the most beautiful natural reserve in England. Bristol- born James Baker Pyne is now considered by many to have been second only to Turner in his ability to capture the essence of the English landscape. After training initially for the Law, he turned to painting in his twenties. He moved to London in 1835, where he exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Artists (where he later became Vice President). He traveled widely throughout Britain and Europe, but he is best known for his series of views of the Lakes, painted between 1848 and 1851. This exquisite view comes from the deluxe portfolio edition of Pyne's celebrated text "The English Lake District." First published in 1853, the deluxe edition was issued in custom-made portfolios with the images superbly coloured and tipped onto thick wove cards. Examples of these images are difficult to find, making this striking print a true rarity. Pyne's seminal work was later reissued by Day & Son in 1859 with the title "Lake Scenery of England." Abbey, Scenery of Great Britain and Ireland, in Aquatint and Lithography 1770-1860, p. 123, no. 196, plate 4; Tooley, English Plate Books with Coloured Plates 1790-1860, no. 387, plate 3.

        A Natural History of the Nests and Eggs of British Birds

      London : Groombridge and Sons, 1853 A fair copy of the 1st Edition of this comprehensive and authoritative work in 3 volumes published 1853-56. In the original decorative cloth bindings with gilt pictures of nests and eggs on the front boards and gilt titles and decorative design to spine. With 226 colour plates of nests and eggs - 54 being of nests. The plate numbering in the 1st edition is wrong (some plates from Vol I are included in Vol III) and although 232 plates are listed, only 226 were actually printed and included. The bindings have been protected by removeable cellophane coverings so look reasonably clean and bright. They are shaken however, and Vol I has a loose section and Vol II is beginning to show a break in the stitching at p 50. The corners show some bumping. Internally where the coverings are held together with sellotape, the tape has marked the facing section of endpaper. There are ink signatures of Jas M Fleming 1922 and Jas Fleming's chartered accountancy stamp to the feps. There is brown spotting to sections of all volumes - particularly the beginning sections and final leaves. Vol I is worst affected; Vol III is mostly unaffected. This spotting is occasionally visible on the plates, but most are in good clean condition. Many of the tissue guards are stained. In the first edition all the plates have the nests/eggs against a cream/pale green background and this background has offset to the tissue guards in some cases.

        COLUMBIA MINING LAWS [caption title]

      [Columbia, Ca.: Gazette Print, 1853].. Broadside, 10 3/4 x 8 inches, printed in three columns. A bit of light foxing, mostly in the margins. Near fine. In a folding cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. A rare broadside printing of the laws of the Columbia Mining District in California in 1853, created and enforced by the miners for their own self-government. The seventeen articles all deal with regulations for mining and claims. The first nine set out rules for making and operating claims. The next three address foreign ownership of claims. Article 10: "None but Americans and Europeans who have or shall declare their intentions of becoming citizens, shall hold claims in this district...." Article 11: "Neither Asiatics nor South Sea Islanders shall be allowed to mine in this district, either for themselves or for others." Article 12 sets out a punishment for any miner who sells a claim to an Asian or Polynesian. The final five articles set out rules for enforcing the laws, including the creation of a Miners Committee, and a system of binding arbitration. According to the text, the laws were adopted "at a meeting of the Miners of the Columbia Mining District, held Oct. 1st, 1853...," and the laws are signed in print by "C.H. Chamberlain, Pres." and "R.A. Robinson, Sec'y." "The item is of basic importance...as an example of how the California miners - or men beyond the reach of government anywhere else in our States and Territories, for that matter - banded together and enacted and enforced codes of law for their own protection" - Eberstadt. The COLUMBIA GAZETTE (which printed this broadside) was, according to Kemble, the second newspaper to operate in Columbia, starting operations in the fall of 1852. The first newspaper in the area, the COLUMBIA STAR, apparently printed only two or three issues in October-November of 1851, before the printing press was destroyed by vandals. Greenwood locates only three copies, at the California Historical Society, the Bancroft Library, and the Streeter copy, which was sold at the Clifford sale in 1994. Rocq lists a copy at the Huntington Library. OCLC adds copies at Yale, Library of Congress, University of California at San Diego, Stanford, and DeGolyer Library at Southern Methodist University. A rare and interesting example of the search for order in the tumult of the gold rush. GREENWOOD 381. ROCQ 15427. EBERSTADT 131:105. STREETER SALE 2735. CLIFFORD SALE 26. OCLC 29876358.

        [Robert Stephenson Esq. M.P.]

      Published by Henry Graves & Co, Feb. 21, 1853. Hand-coloured mezzotint. State ii/iii with the artists' names and the sitter's facsimile signature. Facsimile signature in lower right margin. Prinsellers Association stamp in lower left corner. On fine India paper mounted onto thick white wove as issued. In excellent condition. Image size: 27 3/8 x 17 1/8 inches. 31 ¾ x 20 ¼ inches. 34 9/16 x 22 1/8 inches. This portrait of Robert Stephenson, the famous engineer who built the Britannia Bridge, is a wonderful example of an early coloured mezzotint. Robert Stephenson was the son of the famous engineer George Stephenson who invented one of the earliest steam locomotives. After studying at Edinburgh University, Stephenson joined with his father and founded one of the largest locomotive manufacturers in the world. In 1833, Robert was appointed chief engineer of the London and Birmingham railway, a project that was riddled with difficult engineering obstacles. Upon its successful completion, Robert went on to construct railways across the world and is regarded, along with his father, as one of the founders of railway engineering. Stephenson is best known for his design for the Britannia Bridge over the Menai Strait in Wales, which is pictured in the background of Lucas's robust portrait. Robert Stephenson was not only a talented engineer but also a beloved figure of his day. A contemporary writer described England's admiration for Stephenson best when he wrote: "Not to his mere mechanical skill does he owe his success in life. That might have been thwarted in five hundred ways by interested rivals; but men wish not to thwart those whom they love; and probably no chief of an army was ever more beloved of his soldiers that Robert Stephenson has been by the noble army of physical workers." O'Donoghue, Catalogue of Engraved British Portraits...in the British Museum 1; Lennox- Boyd & Stogdon, state ii/ii.

One of the large maps, "Map of the Great Salt Lake and adjacent country in the Territory of Utah," permanently established the topography and place names of northern Utah. The other large "Map of a reconnoissance between Ft. Leavenworth, on the Missouri River, and the Great Salt Lake in the Territory of Utah...," showing the overland trail, was based on the work of Stansbury, Gunnison, Preuss, and Carrington. See Wheat for an exhaustive discussion. This account is also important as a pioneering botanical study of the Great Basin. HOWES S884. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 764, 765, 766. WAGNER-CAMP 219:3.

        Republic of Liberia

      Washington DC, 1853. unbound. very good. Case map. Uncolored lithograph. Image measures 27.25" x 41 5/8". Rare map of the coast of Liberia that reflects the country's history. Includes several insets of the major rivers in the area: Monrovia and Cape Mesurado, Junk River and Marshall, Edina and Grand Bassa, Ceston, Sangwin River and Sinou. Details include geographical features, depths and prevailing winds. The map denotes specific plots of land and when they were "acquired", from 1822 to 1849. The American Colonization Society first founded the region in the early 1820s for freed slaves as an alternative to emancipation within the United States. In 1847 the Americo-Liberian settlers declared independence and established the Republic of Liberia. This map, published only six years later, is a contemporary tribute to Liberia's development. Booklet missing. Wear along original folds, tear to right edge.

        Album photographique. Pau et ses environs.

      Pau, Imprimerie photographique de J.J. Heilmann 1853 - In-4 oblong de 18 photographies. Demi-basane verte, titre doré sur le premier plat. (Reliure de l'époque.) Album complet de ses 15 planches publiées, ce qui est rarissime, plus 2 autres photographies. Cet album a été réalisé d’après le procédé mis au point par J.J. Heilmann et John Stewart permettant d’obtenir des épreuves de toutes dimensions à partir du même négatif. « Cet « Album photographique » était un véritable recueil relié, de format in-quarto, visiblement destiné à concurrencer les albums de lithographies tant prisés par les voyageurs de l’époque. Il présentait en quinze épreuves, non signées pour la plupart, les principaux sites de Pau et des alentours. . Certaines vues étaient des montages assez curieux de personnages photographiés, entourés d’un décor champêtre dessiné par le peintre Victor Venat, ami de Heilmann, qui devait plus tard se reconvertir dans la photographie : c’est notamment le cas de la planche de titre et d’une autre, intitulée "Paysans des environs de Pau", [ "Costumes des environs de Pau", dans cet album.] . Ce recueil comportait à l’origine quinze planches : aucun exemplaire complet n’existe à ce jour dans les collections publiques française." (Pyrénées en images). Les épreuves sont sur papier salé à partir d’un négatif papier. Aux 15 vues de l’album "Pau et ses environs" ont été reliées dans l’album une photo, d’une autre série (chevaux et personnage), non signée, et une autre épreuve (Château de Pau et les Pyrénées) de plus grand format, attribuée à Heilmann. L’album est ainsi constitué : Titre - Vue de Pau prise du Parc. - Costumes des environs de Pau. [signée J.J. Heilmann] - Chaumière des environs de Pau. - Cathédrale de Lescar (Béarn). - [Une épreuve sans titre, calèche, chevaux et personnages en chapeaux haut-de-forme.] - Abside de la cathédrale de Lescar. - Vue de Pau [avec une lavandière au bord du Gave au premier plan]. - Le château de Coarraze (Béarn). - Chapelle de Bétharam (Béarn). - Pic du Midi de Pau. - Le pont de Lescun (Vallée d’Aspe). - Le Parc de Pau. - Château de Pau (Intérieur). - Sauveterre (Béarn). - La vallée d’Aspe (Béarn). - [Château de Pau et les Pyrénées enneigées au fond]. Cette dernière photo [88 x 212 mm], qui en principe ne fait pas partie de cet album, est de J. J. Heilmann. Elle est ici recadrée et un peu plus petite que celle du catalogue d’exposition (N°18), qui la date de décembre 1853. Joint : une photographie sur carton volant de la même époque montrant une cabane sur pilotis. Reliure frottée. La Lumière, n°31, 30 Juillet 1853. Pyrénées en images. de l'oeil à l'objectif 1820-1860.

        Album of Pressed European Flowers,

      n.p. 1853-55, n.p. - Oblong 8vo. (about 4½ by 7½ inches.) 50 leaves (i.e., 100 pages) of stiff paper mostly white but some leaves of a grayish color. 41 leaves have been used; 9 remain in the rear without specimens. Contemporary binding pebbled morocco, all edges gilt. All original work. The title page is inscribed "Hard to please, her book", a skull and crossbones and "Sic Vita!". The first page contains two arrangements of flowers noted as Florence, Christmas Day. The next page gives us Cascine, Sunday Jan. 8th with two further dried arrangements. The book progresses through the Boboli Gardens, Top of the Duomo, many places in Rome (April), Naples (May), back to Florence, then a dried wreath pattern with "Italy 1854 B. B. fecit". The Tyrol. Constance, Paris (March, 1855), Roslyn Castle, London, and ends in London. The specimens are well preserved; a very few are noted lacking or detached, the morocco biding is lightly rubbed and a little discolored but overall this is a very good example of an early Victorian pressed flower album from a two year trip to the continent. We only wish we knew the identity of 'B.B.". Laid in is a card from Cairo dated Christmas 1888 containing a pressed arrangement of dried flowers highlighting a cross: "Blumen des hl. Landes" (Flowers of the Holy Land) and signed "E.W.H." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The MINER'S TEN COMMANDMENTS

      San Francisco:: Sun Print.,. (1853).. 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.. Subtle age toning to extremities. Fold lines, which are a bit tender. & starting at the edges. Still, a respectable VG copy.. "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. . 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.

It passed between France and Great Britain a number of times and became a British possession in 1803. It became independent and joined the Commonwealth in 1979. As one would suspect, traces of French law remain in the island's legal system. OCLC locates 9 copies in North America. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 7:341.

        Autograph manuscript of part of his "Autobiographic Sketches. Selections Grave and Gay from Writings published and Unpublished".

      Written on both sides of a single leaf cut from the middle of a larger sheet, the text commences on one side, "of the case, and would have been executed in a summary way, upon the prima facie evidence against him, that he did not appear to be in the condition of a prisoner; and, if his name had ever again reached his country, it would have been in some sad list of ruffians, murderers, traitors to their country…………" and finishes, "……roused from their slumbers by the glare of conflagration, reflected from gleaming cutlasses and from the faces of demons. This fear it was--a fear like this, as I have often thought…"The second side commences, "I have said that he would not have appeared to any capturing ship as standing in the situation of prisoner amongst the pirates, nor was he such in the sense of being confined. He moved about, when on board ship, in freedom……………" and finishes, "… Much, therefore, it was that he owed to this accomplishment. Still, there is no good thing without its alloy; and this great blessing brought along with it something worse than a dull duty - the necessity, in fact, of facing fears and trials to which the sailor's heart is preeminently…"Both the above forming part of Chapter XII, "My Brother" of "Autobiographic Sketches" first published in 1853. Approximately 500 words with much crossing out, alterations and revisions. The leaf 4 x 7½ inches.

        Don Pirlone a Roma. Memorie di un italiano dal 1° settembre 1848 al 31 dicembre 1850. Quarta edizione e seconda economica.

      Torino, Tip. del Progresso diretta da Barera ed Ambrosio, 1853. 1853 3 voll. in-4° (262x182mm), pp. XIII, (2), 204; (2), 204; (2), 216; legatura m. pelle marrone con titolo e filetti in oro ai dorsi. 306 tavv. caricaturali non firmate (ma tra gli incisori figurano Francesco Ratti, Sebastiano Vaiani e Achille Monneret) incise su rame f.t. Ogni volume presenta un doppio frontespizio, il primo dei quali con titolo entro cornice allegorica. Capilettera e finalini ornati ad ogni singolo capitolo. Qualche inevitabile fioritura, alcuni restauri a cuffie e cerniere. Ottimo esemplare nell'insieme, conservante all'interno le rare brossure originali figurate. Quarta edizione (il termine "economica" designa semplicemente la sua apparizione a dispense) di questa famosa opera di satira risorgimentale, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1850, i cui bersagli polemici preferenziali sono il Papato, l'Austria e la Francia. Il Pinto, nato a Roma nel 1818, spentosi nel 1910, già comproprietario ed articolista del celebre periodico satirico "Don Pirlone", riparò a Torino dopo la caduta della Repubblica Romana; scrivendo la presente opera egli vi trasfuse lo stesso mordace spirito polemico che aveva animato il quasi omonimo periodico: "Edotti dall'esperienza, sappiamo quale profonda traccia lascino nell'animo umano gli incancellabili colpi del ridicolo". Bertarelli, 6395. Bibliogr. d. età del Risorgimento, II, 249.

        Boston, From City Point near Sea Street

      New York: Henry I. Megarey, 1853. A SPECTACULAR VIEW OF THE BOSTON SHORELINE DURING THE MID-NINETEENTH CENTURY Colored aquatint Image size: approx. 19 3/5" x 25 1/10" Framed size: 31" x 36 3/5" ca. 1853-1856 Literature: Deák, Picturing America, 408 W.J. Bennett's exquisitely colored aquatint provides the viewer with a stunning view of Boston's harbor. Indeed, this work possesses the three qualities that define Bennett's best aquatints: clarity, sparkle, and luminosity. The lush clouds and azure sky are particularly well rendered. In addition, Bennett expertly organizes all of the work's compositional elements. The schooner's sail supplies the image with a strong left border, while the point of the schooner's anchor returns the viewer's gaze back in the direction of the city of Boston. Manned rowboats also offer the viewer a sense of scale. . Book.

        Laws at Present in Force in the Island of St. Lucia

      1853. [St. Lucia]. Laws at Present in Force in the Island of St. Lucia. London: Printed by W. Clowes and Sons, 1853. vi, 388 pp. Octavo (9-1/2" x 6"). Contemporary calf, rebacked, red and black lettering pieces to spine, endpapers renewed. Moderate rubbing to extremities, some scuffing and edgewear to boards, most of upper (red) lettering piece lacking, light toning to text, internally clean. Ex-library. Location label to spine, small embossed stamp to front board, inkstamps to preliminaries. A solid copy of a scarce title. * With index and side-notes. St. Lucia was discovered by Columbus in 1502. The first group of colonists, from England, were massacred by the Caribs, but the French succeeded in colonizing the island in 1642. It passed between France and Great Britain a number of times and became a British possession in 1803. It became independent and joined the Commonwealth in 1979. As one would suspect, traces of French law remain in the island's legal system. OCLC locates 9 copies in North America. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 7:341.

        From the Ordnance Survey of the Country Thirty Miles Round London.

      London: G.F. Cruchley, [c.1853].. Map dimensions 108 x 132 cm, overall dimensions 114 x 137 cm. A fine large folding map of the environs of London, extending from Hertford down to Godalming and Chatham across to Bagshot. Scale: one inch to the mile. Bright original colour in block denoting the parks and estates and in outline demarcating the county boundaries and the railway lines. Dissected into 48 sections and mounted on linen, folds into original dark green moiré cloth slipcase with publisher's title label to upper board, matching moiré cloth to the folded end sections of the map. The case sympathetically repaired at the head of one spine and the joint adjacent, the map in excellent condition. Cf. Hyde, D. & H. 333. The map was first issued by John Walter Froggett in 1831 with a slightly different title. According to James Howgego Cruchley's first rendering of the map appeared in 1840, of which two editions appeared within a year. James Hyde records six subsequent editions published from 1854 onwards. This example would appear to have been issued a year or two earlier, in that it shows the Great Northern Railway going into Kings Cross (the station opened in 1852) and the Great Western is shown terminating in its original, slightly more western, location (the new station opened in 1854). Population figures for boroughs and parishes are indicated, presumably from data provided in 1851 census.

        TEN MONTHS AMONG THE TENTS OF THE TUSKI with Incidents of an Arctic Boat Expedition in Search of Sir John Franklin, as Far as the Mackenzie River, and Cape Bathurst.

      London: John Murray, 1853.. 1st Edition: xvi, 417pp, illustrated, 11 illustrations of which 4 lithographic plates (3 tinted), 1 coloured folding map. [MISSING the lithographic frontispiece] . Rebound, contemporary half leather with bluse marbled boards, gilt ruling and titling to spine. A rare and very important book on the expedition led by T.E.L. Moore on the Brigg Plover in search of Sir John Franklin. The expedition, in which Hooper participated as a marine officer, was forced to winter in Providence-Bay, where Hooper could gather an enormous wealth of useful information on the Tuski. When the ship was free of ice, Hooper joined Pullen's boat expedition along the arctic north coast of America to the Mackenzie River and Cape Bathurst. In summer 1850 the expedition crossed the northenmost part of Canada and returned to England. - Henze II, 622/23. The book also contains information on the culture of the North Alaska Esquimaux and the Tuski. Hooper travelled aboard the Plover as Acting mate with the British Naval Franklin Search Expedition from Plymouth (1848-52) under Captain T.E.L. Moore. The expedition was sent by the Admiralty to serve as a search and supply ship for John Franklin's Northwest Passage Expedition (1845-48) and to assist with Henry Kellett's ship Herald of the British Naval Franklin Search Expedition (1848-50). The Plover over-wintered in 1848-49 in a small bay on the Siberian coastline near a Chukchi village, and enjoyed excellent relations with the Natives. Hooper's detailed descriptions of the customs, dwellings, clothing and beliefs of the Chukchis and adjacent North Alaskan Eskimos are complemented in his narrative by colour plates illustrative of the people and their ways of life. The following spring, W.J.S. Pullen and Hooper embarked on a coastal exploration of the region between Wainwright Inlet and Mackenzie River for traces of the Franklin Expedition. [AB 7395]. Covers heavily worn, front hinge beginning to split, some leather missing from corners and spine. Previous owners signature on fep, pages age toned,p415 split in hinge, some minor foxing but overall a nice clean copy. Good.

        Wast Water

      London: Published by Thos. Agnew & Son, 1853. Tinted lithograph with rich publisher's colour. Printed on wove paper. Trimmed to image as issued. In excellent condition with the exception of some very minor foxing in the image. 13 3/16 x 19 3/4 inches. A stunning view of Wast Water, from the deluxe portfolio edition of John Baker Pyne's magnificent work "The English Lake District." The Lake District first came to the fore with the rise of the Romantic Movement during the second half of the eighteenth century. The poet William Wordsworth, a native of the district, established the area as the epitome of the ideal landscape, and artists and tourists alike visited the regions natural beauties in search of the Romantic ideal. Poets such as Byron, Shelley, and Keats proclaimed the Lakes as the manifestation of the "Picturesque." By the middle of the nineteenth century, when Pyne visited the area, the Lakes were well established in the national consciousness as the most beautiful natural reserve in England. Bristol-born James Baker Pyne is now considered by many to have been second only to Turner in his ability to capture the essence of the English landscape. After training initially for the Law, he turned to painting in his twenties. He moved to London in 1835, where he exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Artists (where he later became Vice President). He traveled widely throughout Britain and Europe, but he is best known for his series of views of the Lakes, painted between 1848 and 1851. This exquisite view comes from the deluxe portfolio edition of Pyne's celebrated text "The English Lake District." First published in 1853, the deluxe edition was issued in custom-made portfolios with the images superbly coloured and tipped onto thick wove cards. Examples of these images are difficult to find, making this striking print a true rarity. Pyne's seminal work was later reissued by Day & Son in 1859 with the title "Lake Scenery of England." Abbey, Scenery of Great Britain and Ireland, in Aquatint and Lithography 1770-1860 p. 123, no. 196, plate 13; Tooley, English Plate Books with Coloured Plates 1790-1860 no. 387, plate 12

        Album pintoresco du Cuba.

      Quer-4°. Kolorierter Originalumschlag, 26 handkolorierte Lithographien, 1 mehrfach gefaltete kolorierte Karte von Kuba und 1 gefalteter kolorierter Plan von Havanna. Neuer Halblederband mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel und Rückenvergoldung auf fünf Bünden. In Halbleinwandschuber Palau 167989. - Sabin 17748. - Cueto: Miahlhe's Colonial Cuba S. 73 - 120. - Das berühmteste Ansichtenwerk Cubas Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Von Cueto als 'Album I' bezeichnet der als Drucker eine Hamburger Druckerei C. Adler vermutet. Von der vorliegenden Ausgabe lässt sich aber kein Exemplar in einer deutschen Bibliothek nachweisen. Der ursprünglich aus Bordeaux stammende Mialhe war Schüler von François Edouard Picot (s. Bénézit 7,382). Er wanderte nach Cuba aus, wo er als Lehrer an der Kunstakademie wirkte. Daneben veröffentlichte er 3 Ansichtenwerke mit Veduten und Szenen aus dem Volksleben, die schnell populär wurden und etliche Nachahmer fanden. Hier eine von 2 Nachdruckausgaben nach der 1848 bei Marquier in La Havanna erschienenen Originalausgabe, die 28 Tafeln umfasste. Die Ansichten in der Originalausgabe waren nicht koloriert. Neben der vorliegenden erschien eine weitere Ausgabe zur gleichen Zeit in Berlin bei Storch und Kramer in Chromolithographie. Unser Exemplar mit dem Verlegernamen B. May y Ca. auf dem miteingebundenen Originalumschlag. Einige Tafeln mit dem Monogramm E.Y. oder der Signatur C. Beer. Der ursprünglich 1849 von W.S. Barnard gezeichnete Stadtplan von Havanna hier mit dem Datum von 1853. Nur in der vorliegenden Ausgabe sind die Tafeln von Hand koloriert. Die Tafeln sind gegenüber der chromolithographierten Ausgabe im fein aquarelliertem Kolorit. 18 von 26 Tafeln sind mit Titeln in Spanisch, Englisch und Deutsch versehen, 8 nur in Spanisch. Gegenüber der Ausgabe mit 27 Tafeln fehlen die Tafeln 25-27: Corrida de toro - Vista de una casa de caldera - Vista de una vega de tabaco. Zusätzlich sind in der vorliegenden Ausgabe vorhanden: Vista del Fondo de la Bahia de La Habana - Sagua la Grande. Der gefaltete kolorierte Plan von La Habana (Plangrösse 33x26 cm) ist umgeben von 14 kolorierten Ansichten der Stadt, (Blattgrösse 46x59). Die kolorierte Karte (34x25 cm) mit einer farbigen Kartusche und 16 kleinen Ansichten. Der hier eingebundene Originalumschlag wird von Emilio Cueto in seinem Werkverzeichnis der Lithografien Mialhés nicht erwähnt. - Vereinzelt schwach stockfleckig. Die Karte und der Plan mit alt hinterlegtem Einriss und im Falz verstärkt. - The most famous book of views of Cuba of the middle of the 19th century. Originary of Bordeaux, Mialhe was a scholar of François Edouard Picot (s. Bénézit 7,382). He expatriated himself to Cuba and worked there as a teacher in the Cuban Liceo Literario y Artístico. He also published three lithographically- illustrated works with veduta and scenes of everyday life, which became quickly very popular and were therefore often copied. This work is one of two reprints of the original edition printed after 1848 by Marquier in Havana, and which contained 29 plates. The views of the original edition were not coloured. Next to this edition, another one was printed at the same time in Berlin by Storch und Kramer with chromolithographs. Our copy has the editors name B. May y Ca. on the bound original wrapper. Some plates carry the monogram E.Y. or a signature C. Bur. The city map of Havana originally drawn by W.S. Barnard in 1849 is dated here from 1853. This is the only copy with hand-coloured plates. The plates have a fine aquarell colouring in comparison to the chromolithographs. 18 of 26 plates have titles in Spanish, English and German, 8 only in Spanish. In comparison with the edition with 27 plates, plates 25-27 are missing: Corrida de toro - Vista de una casa de caldera - Vista de una vega de tabaco. Additional plates are: Vista del Fondo de la Bahia de La Habana - Sagua la Grande. The folded plan of La Habana (dimension 33x26 cm) is encircled with 14 coloured views of the city, (dimension of the leaf 46x59). The coloured map (34x25 cm) with a coloured cartouche and 16 small views. Isolated lightly foxed.

Innehåller bl.a. dikterna "Alkoranens bud", "Zigenarflickan", den av fotografin inspirerade "Hjertats daguerreotyp", "Bakningsvisa" ("Baka, baka/ liten kaka") och skaldestycket "Ragnar Lodbrok" med vilket Knös vann Svenska akademiens stora pris 1851. På s. 201-12 i del II avtrycks översättningar av de samtida amerikanska poeterna William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878), Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-82) och Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-82). Thekla Knös (1815-80) växte upp i Uppsala där hennes mor Alida höll litterär salong. Såväl Alida som Thekla tillhörde de mer kända personerna i stadens sällskapsliv och författare som Geijer, Atterbom m.fl. hörde till umgängeskretsen. "Svenskt biografiskt lexikon" menar att skaldestycket "Ragnar Lodbrok" saknar "all originalitet" men tillägger "I de smärre dikter som utgavs 52-53 med företal av Atterbom, kommer K:s talang bättre till sin rätt. Några är barnvisor, som blev mycket omtyckta, andra hämtar motiv från naturen o vardagslivets förhållanden. Det är 'täcka' poem i efterromantikens idealistiska o idylliska stil". Atterbom skriver i sitt förord att Geijer några få veckor före sin död hade givit honom i uppdrag att dels färdigställa en minnesstod över Thorild, dels möjliggöra utgivningen av Thekla Knös dikter: "Loford öfver deras författarinna, uttalade med hela värman af en faderlig vän, voro de sista utlåtelser jag från hans läppar hörde."
