        4 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 7 S., 12 bis Gr.-8. Gräfin Esterházy war Hofdame und eine enge Vertraute der österreichischen Erzherzogin Sophie, der Mutter des Kaisers Franz Joseph I. von Österreich. Von Erzherzogin Sophie wurde sie auch für das Amt der Oberhofmeistern, der sog. Ersten Gesellschaftsdame, bei Kaiserin Elisabeth ausgesucht. Im August 1853 begegnete sie erstmals der jungen Sissi, als sie ihr in Bad Ischl zu ihrer Verlobung mit Kaiser Franz Joseph I. gratulierte. Im April 1854 wurde sie Elisabeths Oberhofmeisterin. Sie war fast 56 Jahre alt, als sie das Amt der Oberhofmeisterin erhielt und galt als sittenstrenge, zeremoniöse Frau außerdem war sie für ihre erzkonservative Haltung bekannt. Sie übernahm bei Kaiserin Elisabeth de facto die Funktion einer Gouvernante. Elisabeth fasste vom ersten Augenblick an eine tiefe Abneigung gegen Gräfin Esterházy-Liechtenstein sie empfand sie als Aufpasserin. Esterházy-Liechtenstein wurde allerdings von einzelnen Mitgliedern des Hofstaats ebenso wegen ihrer gouvernantenhaften Haltung gegenüber Elisabeth kritisiert auch, dass sie Elisabeth in den Familienklatsch der Hocharistokratie einzuweihen versuchte, obwohl Elisabeth dafür kein wirkliches Interesse zeigte, wurde negativ vermerkt. Esterházy-Liechtenstein betrachtete dies jedoch als eine ihrer Aufgaben. Sie war, im Auftrag von Erzherzogin Sophie, im April und Mai 1854 auch bei den Flitterwochen von Franz Joseph I. und Elisabeth auf Schloss Laxenburg anwesend, um eventuelle Verstöße der Kaiserin gegen die Etikette an Erzherzogin Sophie berichten zu können. Im Juni 1854 begleitete sie das Kaiserpaar auf dessen erste Auslandsreise nach Böhmen und Mähren. Im Winter 1860 wurde ihr von Kaiserin Elisabeth mitgeteilt, dass sie sie auf ihrer Reise nach Madeira nicht begleiten werde und dass sie von einer anderen Hofdame, der jungen Mathilde zu Windisch-Grätz, vertreten werde. Während Elisabeths Madeiraaufenthalt übernahm sie, gemäß den Weisungen von Erzherzogin Sophie, die Erziehung der beiden Kinder Elisabeths, der Erzherzogin Gisela von Österreich und, gemeinsam mit Baronin Karoline Walden, auch die des Kronprinzen Rudolf. Im November 1861 - Erzherzogin Sophie hatte sich diesmal durchsetzen können - reiste sie gemeinsam mit Kaiser Franz Joseph I. und den beiden Kindern Gisela und Rudolf zu Elisabeth, die sich seit Ende Oktober 1861 in Venedig aufhielt von dort berichtete sie Erzherzogin Sophie ausführlich über Elisabeth und ihre Kinder. Während des Venedigaufenthalts kam es mehrfach zu Streitigkeiten zwischen ihr und Kaiserin Elisabeth wegen der Erziehungsmethoden der Gräfin. Esterházy-Liechtenstein bestand darauf, dass die von Erzherzogin Sophie angeordneten Erziehungsprinzipien genauestens eingehalten wurden. Elisabeth forderte daraufhin die Entlassung der Gräfin. Anfang 1862, wohl im Laufe des Jänner 1862, wurde Esterházy-Liechtenstein von Kaiser Franz Joseph I. als Oberhofmeisterin entlassen. Ihre Nachfolgerin wurde Pauline von Königsegg, Gräfin Bellegarde. Kaiser Franz Joseph I. verabschiedete sich persönlich von ihr, dankte ihr für ihre Dienste und überreichte ihr als Zeichen seiner Dankbarkeit ein wertvolles Armband mit seinem Porträt. Esterházy-Liechtenstein kehrte daraufhin von Venedig nach Wien zurück. Sie starb im Juni 1869 in Wien und wurde in der Liechtenstein'schen Familiengruft in Wranau beigesetzt. Bei ihrer Beerdigung in Wranau in der Liechtenstein-Gruft waren auch Kaiser Franz Joseph I. und Kaiserin Elisabeth anwesend (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. und eh. Zusatz mit U. von Alexandre Dumas d. Ä.

      Paris, 30. XII. 1853. - 1 S. 4to. An Alexandre Dumas d. Ä. mit seinem freudigen Einverständnis, sich an einer Sammlung zur Errichtung eines Denkmals für den 1847 verstorbenen Dichter Frédéric Soulié zu beteiligen: "Mon cher Dumas, F. Soulié était un de mes bons amis: je m'associe donc de tout cœur à votre noble projet de perpétuer sa mémoire. Disposez, je vous en prie, & de ma salle de Concerts & de moi-même comme bon vous semblera [ ]". Dumas, der bei der Beisetzung am Friedhof Père-Lachaise seinerzeit neben Victor Hugo die Grabrede gehalten hatte, dankt ihm seine Bereitwilligkeit mit den Worten: "Merci mon cher Hertz". - Das von Dumas initiierte Denkmal sollte durch die Aktivitäten eines J. Gallois, eines Cousins des Verstorbenen und Anwalt von dessen einziger Schwester, nicht zustandekommen, doch wurde mehr als zwei Jahrzehnte später ein von anderen Personen gesponsertes Denkmal am Père-Lachaise eingeweiht (10. II. 1875).

        The American Aboriginal Port Folio.

      Philadelphia, Lippincott, Grambo & Co., [1853]. Small folio. Original publisher's full brown morocco, lettered and decorated in blind and gilt;, all edges gilt; pp. 83, additional engraved title with vignette and 26 finely steel-engraved plates with tissue guards; wear extremities, head and tail rubbed; internally only very lightly spotted; a good copy. First edition of a beautiful portfolio, in the superior morocco binding, with insightful text based on first-hand experience of life of and with Dakota Indians, described by Seth and Mary Eastman. He served in the US Army as cartographer and artist, stationed in Fort Snelling, Minnesota Territory, where he studied Native American life, before the culture was largely destroyed. Mary, his wife was a successful writer (an dversary of Harriet Beecher Stowe, when it came to slavery). Seth Eastman is among the foremost frontier artists who depicted Native American life. His 1870s painting the Death Whoop was considered controversial and twice removed from public galleries, because it shows a Native American holding a scalp of a white person. An early version of this image is in this volume the plate facing page 26. Howes E-17; Sabin 21682.

        Bleak House

      London: Bradbury and Evans, 1853. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Browne, H[ablot] K.. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 640 pp. First edition of the bound version (not individual parts) of this Dickens classic. Bound with the pictorial title page but without the half-title page, three typographical errors present as is the 5-line list of Errata printed at the foot of page xiv, and all 40 plates by Phiz, including the Dark Plates. Many speculate that Bleak House was inspired by an actual case, Jennens vs Jennens, which began in 1798 and did not end for another 117 years (in 1915) when legal fees had totally drained the estate of all funds - this case would have been ongoing for about 55 years when Bleak House was published. Court reform was already underway when Dickens published his serialized novel and culminated in the Judicature Acts which were passed between 1870 and 1873. ***DESCRIPTION: Contemporary green half-leather with marbled boards, gilt decorations to spine, black leather spine label, marbled text edges, plain endpapers. All 40 plates are present as called for, including the frontispiece, the pictorial title page, and the 38 enumerated in the List of Plates. All three typographical errors are present, on pages 19, 209, and 275. Tipped into the book by a prior owner are three vintage newspaper clippings that have been inserted into the book, all having to do with interesting facts surrounding places or persons in the story: the first tipped onto the front flyleaf, is dated October 1895 and begins "The streets and houses in London, described by Dickens in his novels are one by one gradually disappearing. It seems that No. 18, Took's Court, near Cursitor Street, Chancery Lane, is destined to go soon....". The second, tipped onto the last page of the Author's Preface, is dated August 1815 (the writer must have meant August 1915) and the clipping starts out "The great Jennings suit, which has occupied the Court of Chancery for more than a century, and has within the last day or two formed the subject of a newspaper controversy, will be one of the first cases of the next winter term....". The third clipping is dated Dec. 1896 and is inserted between pages 576 and the facing Dark Plate, and begins "Considerable changes have recently been made in the block of property that stands on the north side of the Strand between the Law Courst and Catherine Street. Many old houses have been pulled down ....". ***CONDITION: Almost near fine, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, the text pages are showing scattered foxing, the plates are browning around the edges as seems usual. The volume appears to have been bound without the half-title, there is no evidence of it having been removed. Professional restoration work has been done to repair the inner hinges and board edges and replace the leather spine label. Only prior owner markings are the vintage newspaper clippings referred to above, which is why we are grading as very good only. ***CITATION: Podeschi A131. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

Empfehlungskärtchen für den Apotheker und Chemiker Carl Boedeker (1815-1895). - Christian von Bunsen gehörte zu den Mitbegründern des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts in Rom; in der Auseinandersetzung um das Breve Pius' VIII. über die Mischehen (1830) und dem sich daraus entwickelnden Kölner Kirchenstreit wurde seine Stellung in Rom jedoch unhaltbar, so daß er demissionierte und Gesandter in Bern wurde. 1841 verhandelte er in England im Auftrag Friedrich Wilhelms IV. über die Gründung eines anglikanisch-preußischen Bistums in Jerusalem. Seit 1844 als preußischer Gesandter in London tätig, wurde er wegen seiner englisch orientierten Haltung während des Krimkriegs 1854 abberufen und zog sich als Privatier nach Heidelberg zurück.

        AN APPEAL TO THE PEOPLE AGAINST THE BULLY AND CONVICT POWER. TO THE DEMOCRACY OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

      [New York?:. 1853]. 16pp, caption title [as issued]. Disbound, bit of loosening. Else Very Good. This rare pamphlet illustrates the hatred between the two factions of New York State's Democratic Party: Hunkers and Barn-Burners or, as they were also known, Hards and Softs. Hunkers supported the National Democratic Party. Barn-Burners were anti-slavery Democrats, alienated from the National Party by its southern domination and its support of slavery and the Fugitive Slave Act. At the 1853 State Convention in Syracuse the conflict erupted into violence. This pamphlet presents the Hunker side of the story, their victimization by "an organized body of desperate men" who are "notorious in the city of New- York, their acts of disorder, the outrages in which they habitually share, and of which several of them stand convicted." This "bully power, with brazen front and foul brutality," created a "theatre of violence and outrage" in Syracuse. OCLC locates copies only at the New York Public Library and Harvard. FIRST EDITION. Not in Sabin, Eberstadt, Decker, LCP. OCLC 22046734 [2] [as of October 2014].

        The Slave Trade, Domestic and Foreign:

      Philadelphia: A. Hart, Late Carey & Hart,, 1853. Why It Exists, and How It May Be Extinguished. Octavo. Original brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt, spine and boards stamped in blind. With the errata slip tipped in to page 93. Extremities lightly rubbed with a few knocks, head of spine a little crushed and frayed, endpapers browned, contents foxed, overall a very good copy. First edition, presentation copy inscribed by the author, "To Signor Giulio with the respects of the author". Henry Charles Carey (1793–1879) was hailed by his contemporaries as "the political economist of the age" (Sartain's Magazine), and his earlier work, The Credit System (1838), was considered "the best work on the credit system that has ever been published" (Journal des Economistes). Here he examines global economic policies in relation to slavery. "H. C. Carey was the first to unite with a general knowledge of natural science a deep interest in philosophy as well as originality in the treatment of economic problems. No American of the 19th century can claim more justly our high regard for labors well done than this zealous champion of monism. What [August] Comte was to France and [John Stuart] Mill to England, Carey, in a way, meant to America" (Boucke, The Development of Economics, 1750–1900). He was later elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences as an Associate Fellow in 1863.

        Bleak House. With illustrations by H. K. Browne.

      London: Bradbury and Evans, 1853 - Octavo (211 x 130 mm). Recent green half morocco, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, marbled paper boards and endpapers. Spine cocked, some light foxing, oxidisation to plates as often, a good copy. Etched frontispiece, vignette title page, and 38 plates (including the 10 "dark" plates) by "Phiz" (H. K. Browne), without the half-title. First edition. H. K. Browne had experimented with the "dark plate" technique in Dombey and Son (1848) but in Bleak House their sombreness added a new tone to the illustration of Dickens's books. "As Dickens's vision of society darkened, Browne adjusted his techniques, pioneering in the use of 'dark plates' These brooding, atmospheric designs harmonized with the gloomy, foggy world of Bleak House and Little Dorrit" (Robert Patten in The Oxford Companion to Charles Dickens, 2011, p. 59).

        Mémoire sur la situation de la propriété forestière dans l'intérieur de la France

      Paris, Veuve Bouchard-Huzard, 1853, in-8, de 64 pages et 2 tableaux repliés, broché, sous couverture d'attente, Première édition, fort rare, de ce mémoire extrait, avec pagination nouvelle, des Mémoires de la Société Impériale et Centrale d'Agriculture. Becquerel, préoccupé par la baisse du prix du bois à Paris propose une double étude statistique et agricole afin de rendre compte d'un problème de consommation citadine et d'économie rurale qui met en péril l'exploitation forestière française. Dans un premier temps, il dresse un rare tableau de "la consommation, à Paris depuis 1800, des divers combustibles employés au chauffage, et des causes qui en font varier les prix". Pour ce faire, il décrit et compile le nombre d'habitants à Paris entre 1801 et 1850, la consommation de bois en général et par individu ainsi que la consommation de houille, en général et par individu. En outre, sous forme de tableau, il donne une vue claire de la population parisienne et des produits choisis par ses habitants pour leur chauffage, de la climatologie de Paris, des variations de température, et de la consommation de carbone en quintaux mètre par individu. Cette première partie, inattendue, au vue de titre du mémoire, offre ainsi une vue statistique sur les habitudes de consommation de la vie courante des parisiens durant la première moitié du XIXe siècle. Bon exemplaire.
