BELLOT, Joseph Renà . Stephen PEARCE (artist).
London: Thomas Boys and Paris: E. Gambart & Cie, 6 April 1854. A large mezzotint portrait of Bellot by James Scott after Pearce, image size c. 300 x 380mm, slightly marked, otherwise very good, mounted. This handsome portrait commemorates Joseph Renà Bellot (1826-1853). Born and educated in Paris, Bellot joined the French Navy in 1843. In 1851 he volunteered to accompany William Kennedy on the Prince Albert in search of Sir John Franklin, and Bellot sailed again to the Arctic regions in 1853. While travelling to carry dispatches to Sir Edward Belcher, he fell into a crack in the ice near Cape Bowden and drowned; his diary, narrating his Arctic adventures, was published in 1855. The present portrait was engraved by Scott after the original oil painting by Stephen Pearce (1851), which now hangs in London's National Portrait Gallery.

S. W. Chandler & Bro. Lith, 1854. Approx. 22 1/4 x 28 1/2 inches. Thin paper, black printing. Previously folded (roughly 5 x 8 1/4 inches). Bright and clean, trimmed mostly to black borders on right and left, larger margins top and bottom. Near Fine. "Mount Auburn Cemetery is the first rural, or garden, cemetery in the United States, located on the line between Cambridge and Watertown in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, 4 miles (6.4 km) west of Boston. It is the burial site of many prominent members of the Boston Brahmins, as well being a National Historic Landmark. Dedicated in 1831 and set with classical monuments in a rolling landscaped terrain, it marked a distinct break with Colonial-era burying grounds and church-affiliated graveyards. The appearance of this type of landscape coincides with the rising popularity of the term "cemetery," derived from the Greek for "a sleeping place," instead of graveyard. This language and outlook eclipsed the previous harsh view of death and the afterlife embodied by old graveyards and church burial plots. The 174-acre (70 ha) cemetery is important both for its historical aspects and for its role as an arboretum. It is Watertown's largest contiguous open space and extends into Cambridge to the east, adjacent to the Cambridge City Cemetery and Sand Banks Cemetery. It was designated a National Historic Landmark District in 2003 for its pioneering role in 19th-century cemetery development...Mount Auburn Cemetery was designed largely by Henry Alexander Scammell Dearborn with assistance from Jacob Bigelow and Alexander Wadsworth...In the 18 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Elle montre également la bataille d'Inkerman et le champ de bataille du 25 octobre. Cette bataille du 25 octobre 1854 est la bataille de Balaklava, qui opposa l'armée russe à la coalition, et qui s'acheva sans véritable vainqueur. La bataille d'Inkerman eut lieu quant à elle le 5 novembre 1854. Ville stratégique située sur les rives de la Mer Noire, Sébastopol était le port d'attache de la Marine impériale russe dont la flotte menaçait la Méditerranée. Le siège de la ville débuta le 18 octobre 1854. Ce fut l'épisode principal de la Guerre de Crimée qui opposa, de 1853 à 1856, l'empire russe à une coalition formée de l'empire Ottoman, du Royaume-Uni, de la France et du royaume de Sardaigne, et qui s'acheva par la défaite de la Russie. Le siège dura onze mois, d'octobre 1854 à septembre 1855. Il fut meurtrier et marqué par de nombreuses épidémies, et s'acheva par la défaite de la Russie, entérinée par le Traité de Paris de 1856. La carte est accompagnée d'un extrait du journal des opérations de l'armée devant Sébastopol entre le 1er et le 18 octobre, et d'un rapport sur sur la bataille d'Inkerman par Canrobert, général en chef des troupes … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wollaston, Thomas Vernon
Van Voorst, London, 1854. xliii, 634, 13 hand-col plates. . HB. Large-4to, orig. blue cloth with blind-stamped decorative design to both covers, rebacked preserving original spine; scuff mark to rear cover. Foxing to some plates, mostly marginal, but heavier to first and last. Vg.This copy bears the decorative book plate of John Gray, with the motto 'Tenebo' (Bernard Burke: 'The General Armory of England' identifies the armorial design as the Gray family of Farley Hill Place, Berkshire and Compton Fold, Lancaster). It is interesting to note that in 'The Correspondence of Charles Darwin', Vol. 14, it is stated that 'Richard Thomas Lowe and Thomas Vernon Wollaston visited the Cape Verde Islands, off the west coast of Africa, in 1866 on a yacht owned by John Gray to collect plants, insects, and molluscs (Cook, 1995) and that "Gray, a friend of Wollaston’s, has not been further identified"'.In a letter from Wollaston to Sir Joseph Hooker, 1875 (now in the Royal Botanic Garden, Kew), Wollaston refers to John Gray as a member of the Royal Yacht Squadron, in whose yacht he and Richard Lowe visited the Canaries and Cape Verde (JSTOR). This copy helps to identify the mysterious yachtsman who helped Wollaston in his travels. Rare. This work had a small print run, with only 50 subscribers (according to a printed subscribers list in the author's own copy, sold at Sotheby's in 2012), so copies are rarely available.

Gotha: J. Perthes [Justus Perthes], 1854. First Edition, First Printing. A Very Good + to Near Fine copy of the First Edition, First printing, in the EXCEEDINGLY RARE ORIGINAL DUST JACKET with the book's author, title, and a small decoration appearing on the dust jacket's front panel in black, the mirror image of which appear on the volume's front board in gilt. (None of the foregoing appear either on the volume's or dust jacket's spine.) The dust jacket has kept volume's original brown cloth in a remarkably clean condition. Because of the dust jacket's presence, the front board's deep brown color has been well-preserved and the front board's gilt remains remarkably bright. The volume shows some bumping and rubbing to the leading corners of each board as well as some rubbing to the spine ends, a bit of curving to the boards, and a short split to the upper portion of the front joint. [The volume was issued in a perfectbound format and most of the leaves had come loose before the volume came into our possession. The leaves have been professionally reattached and the volume is in a quite solid condition.] Within, the leaves (which include 65 pages of text and 100 Plates) show heavy foxing to the earliest and last few pages (including to the earliest and last plates) and almost all of the plates show much less -- and scattered -- foxing. (The attached images show a number of the plates selected totally at random.) The dust jacket shows foxing, particularly to the front panel, some rubbing, and some repaired tears and chips, as well as a small hole to the rear panel.

Pulaski, Tn, 1854. [1]p. printed form on folio sheet completed in manuscript and docketed on verso, plus a [12]pp. manuscript on folio sheets. Pages secured by string. Old folds, some foxing and offsetting from ink. Very good. Primary documentation of a curious case related to the sale a possibly "unruly" enslaved woman named Nancy. Included is a one-page form authorizing acting justice of the peace James P. Dysart to receive written depositions from Jane Montgomery and Dr. B.W. Nowlin in the case "James McCallum, Executor of the Last Will and Testament of Samuel Mosley, dec'd." [Plaintiff] vs. "James W. Nowlin" [Defendant]; and the manuscript deposition of B.W. Nowlin, signed by Dysart. Nowlin's testimony answers a series of questions about Nancy, who was owned by his mother, Mary Nowlin (now widowed), who, buying a more obedient woman slave, gave Nancy to her son, James, knowing that he was about to emigrate to Texas and would sell Nancy before his departure. Accordingly, James Nowlin sold Nancy to the now-deceased Samuel Mosley and left for Texas. Apparently, Nancy was in poor health at the time of her sale and Mosley wrote to James in Texas asking for a refund or at least an adjustment on the purchase price, threatening to engage a lawyer in Texas to file suit against James if necessary. B.W. Nowlin testified that Nancy had been in good health as far as he knew, even though the weather had been poor when she was transferred from his mother's home to James's. B.W. did add that Nancy had been "intensely" afraid of Mrs. Nowlin's husband, but, after his death, became "m … [Click Below for Full Description]

The power of deciding it is in your hands ... Let each citizen, who has felt the insult and wrong of the Nebraska perfidy, remember his personal responsibility, and swell by his vote that record of condemnation which, gathering from state to state, is about to fill Congress with honest representatives, who will convince the slave power that 'there is a North'.".

Guesdon, Alfred
Paris, 1854.   Una de las vistas de Madrid mas famosas y curiosas del siglo XIX. En su estado original, litografia estampado en sepia y negro. Se han escrito varios trabajos y libros sobre Guesdon y sus litografias. Se ha dicho que eran dibujos de espionaje/ se ha escrito sobre sus supuesto vuelos en Globo, incluso que Clifford el fotografo, le acompañaba. Creemos que utilizó una mezcla de tecnicas y ayudas para realizar sus dibujos: las vistas desde un alto, en globo, las fotografias de Clifford y los planos topograficos  de la epoca. No creemos que sea factible hacer el dibujo completo desde un globo cautivo, ni tampoco es posible hacer una exposicion larga con las camaras que se utilizaban en la epoca LEspagne a vol doiseau Litografía - Dessiné dapres nature et lith. Par A. Guesdon - Imp. Delarue. Paris - Madrid, en casa de J. B. Stampa Calles de Atocha Nº 20 y Carmen Nº41 Formato (cm): 55x40
