Mathew Brady Studio
New York: Mathew Brady Studio, 1854-58. This is the splendid Perry Family hand-colored Imperial print of Mathew Brady's portrait of Commodore Perry. Brady coined the term "imperial' for his large photographic portraits intended to rival mezzotints and lithographs in size.Perry was one of the leading American naval officers in the years following the War of 1812. His principal wartime command was as head of naval forces in the Mexican-American War. Perry is most famous for opening Japan to the West. In 1852 President Millard Fillmore sent Perry and the East Asia Squadron to establish relations with the government of Japan, which had been largely closed to outsiders for more than two centuries. Perry's deft handling of negotiations led to the Treaty of Kanagawa in 1854. "Perry's mission was a turning point for Japan on the road to economic and political change and to world prominence. For the United States, Perry's mission was an early expression of American commercial and economic advance into the Pacific and East Asia" (ANB)."Perry was accorded a hero's welcome on his return to New York City" (ANB), where he went to Brady's studio for this impressive portrait. "Early on, Brady set himself the task of photographing the nation's leading figures: presidents and military men, business leaders and stars of the stage, writers and artists. Each photograph of a man or woman of mark, displayed in the studio's reception room, attracted new clients and bore witness to the skill, art, and social standing of 'Brady of Broadway' as much as it did to the taste and station of the sitter" ( … [Click Below for Full Description]

A very good copy. Robert Hunt (1807-1887) was librarian and keeper of mine records at the Museum of Practical Geology and professor of mechanical engineering of the Royal School of Mines at London. He carried on numerous photographic and chemical experiments, and was one of the greatest contributors to the early literature of photography. In 1841, Hunt published the first English treatise on photography, A POPULAR TREATISE ON THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY. Our copy, A MANUAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY, is the fourth, revised and enlarged edition of his 1841 treatise. In 1853, he was one of the founders of the Photographic Society of London. His experiments with organic and inorganic light-sensitive substances were most influential in the development of photo chemistry. This history and manual includes detailed procedures and formulae and is comprehensive to its date. Issued in the series ENCYCLOPAEDIA METROPOLITANA, with a separate title page.

Publisher's copy of a later printing, with a 2pp. letter (approx. 225 words) from Mayer dated Baltimore, June 13, 1854, and addressed "Dear Sir," regarding various textual changes that need to be made and asking for the return of the original manuscript: "The M.S. of my book has not reached me, tho you said it would be forwarded last Friday. I sh'd not like to lose it." Among the changes Mayer requests are the removal of the term "Prefatory Letter" at the head of his dedication page; and the removal of a comma, which "alters the reference from Canot to Hale, & it must not." Mayer, founder of the Maryland Historical Society, would edit a number of manuscripts for publication, including the journals of Charles Carroll, the Maryland planter and signer of the American Declaration of Independence. Octavo (20cm.); publisher's brown blind-stamped cloth, gilt-lettered spine; [2],xvii,[1],448,[12](ads)pp.; engraved frontispiece and added title page.

Étude encyclopédique sur le monde et l'humanité. Paris, Gustave Sandré, 1854 [Nantes, imprimerie W. Busseil] 1 fort volume in-8 (19,5 x 13 cm) de 993 pages et 1 page d'errata. Les pages 983 à 993 sont occupées par une table des matières contenues dans ce volume. Cartonnage demi-toile du XXe siècle (probablement années 1950-1960) en très bon état. Tranches rognées un peu courtes. Premier plat de couverture conservée (sali avec légères usures). Volume imprimé sur un papier vélin mécanique de médiocre qualité (non cassant mais uniformément teinté). Quelques salissures. Édition originale rare. Cet ouvrage d'Ange Guépin publié en 1854 reprend quasiment textuellement l'ouvrage de 1850 Philosophie du socialisme, mais Guépin a modifié le début et la fin des chapitres et changé leur agencement. Ce livre engendra une polémique avec Prosper Enfantin que Guépin accusait d'avoir beaucoup trop dévié de la ligne tracée pas Saint-Simon et de ne pas être suffisamment physiologiste. En 1858, Enfantin lui répondit dans sa Lettre au docteur Guépin (de Nantes) sur la physiologie,de plus de 150 pages. « Mon cher ami, écrit-il, la physiologie de M. tel ou tel, de Gall, Flourens ou autres,la vôtre même, n'est pas plus une science que la politique de MM.

'Hadfield resided in Brazil for several years, later moving to Argentina. While in Brazil, in addition to his association with the railway company, he attempted to establish steamer services on the Paraná, as well as to make links with neighbouring countries, and Europe. He set up the first steamship agency in Buenos Aires when he arrived there in 1852. Later, when the province of Buenos Aires temporarily broke away from the Argentine confederation, he developed contacts with General José de Urquiza, sometime president of the confederation, who was anxious to promote foreign investment in the region' (ODNB).

London: Dolman. Alban Butler, 12 vol Lives of the Fathers Martyrs Saints 1854 Leather Stereotype. NOT EX LIBRARY Shipped with USPS Media Mail. Beautiful and very clean set of full leather bound books. It is hard to find this particular set at all, but even less common to find it in such good condition and without library markings. I have owned these for about 10 years and have never seen this exact set for sale in any binding. It is an 1845 reprint of the original Stereotype edition of 1812-13. Study the photos to see the exact condition of the exterior of the set. With a little work these could really shine. I will point out that there is shelf wear on the boards as well as some staining, spots and small places where the top layer of leather has ripped off. The edges of the spines and some other spots are also rubbed through the smooth surface of the leather. These areas are the lighter spots in the photos and you can see every one of them if you look closely at them. The spines are still quite bright but volume 12 is starting to split at the top on both sides but still very firmly attached. All corners are a bit bumped with minimal loss. Notice volume 12 also dented on front board towards top right. Page edges very clean and glossy. Interior extremely clean. Brown endpapers, again...all covers firmly attached. No former owner's markings of any kind and free from any bad odors. I did not see any markings or folded/dog-earred pages. There may be a few very tiny corners folded over. All plates are present. As you can see in the photos, the text pages are 98% pristine and bri … [Click Below for Full Description]

Japan, 1854. 1854 Opium War Japanese Woodblock Print China Qing Ming Sorcery Taiping ShujinAn interesting 18th century woodblock-print of 'Military Tales of the Qing vs Ming' by Seiei Shujin written as an account of the Opium War and the Taiping rebellion. These accounts are primarily military tales and focus on characters such as Hong Wulong a General for the Ming, or Li Boyu, a courageous female general who can perform sorcery. The book interestingly paints British soldiers as "barbarians" who have to "cower" to the Chinese Ming Warriors. This book offended the governmental authorities, and so, woodcuts were confiscated, and the author was thrown into prison.This rare 1854 edition is written in a column format with furigana usage for easier reading.
