Bookplates of Catholic scholar Joseph M. Gleason to the front pastedowns, and his pencilled critique at the beginning of the text of volume I; "It has become the fashion to decry this work in our times, but most of the criticism is parrot-like.

An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Sie erhalten, nach Ihrem Wunsche, hierbei ein paar Notenzeilen, mit einem kleinen musikalischen Gedanken, der mir eben beifiel. Eine genaue Auskunft über Albrechtsbergers Harmonielehre kann ich Ihnen nicht geben, weil von diesem Meister mehrere theoretische Werke dieser Art bekannt geworden sind; sie zeugen jedoch alle von dem gründlichen Harmoniker [ ]. Daß Ihnen meine geringen Compositionen Vergnügen machen, freut mich sehr. Ich hätte freilich mehr bieten können, wenn ich nicht zu viel Zeit auf das Unterrichtgeben verwenden müsste. Wenn Sie mit Winzer bekannt sind und denselben zufällig sehen, so bitte ich ihm zu sagen, dass sein Beitrag zur Orgelbaukunst mit aufgenommen worden ist [ ]". - Seit 1830 war Töpfer Organist der Stadtkirche St. Peter und Paul zu Weimar.

Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage, old marginal pencil notes (some of which are quite humorous, poking fun at the author's descriptions with an occasional "by George" and "my gracious").

Weston was one of a dozen fortune seekers who worked the Auburn mines, located some forty-five miles northeast of Sacramento. He provides plain but entertaining descriptions of what he encountered, including "Hanging a Gambler," "Wonderful Instinct of the Wood Duck," "Origins of Indian Troubles - the Undaunted Backwoodsman," "Scenery of Auburn and Vicinity," "Lassoing a Gambler," and "Fight with a Rattlesnake - also with a Scorpion."

Light dust-soiling, small paper abrasion on front cover. Small ink ownership stamp on first page of text. Very good plus. In red half morocco chemise and slipcase.

'Prigger' is defined as a thief. 'Tom Tiddler' can be translated as any place where pickings may be sought or had without effective interference" - Howell. "This satirical piece is based on the experience of the English who invested in California and Australian mines...The company's holdings were located in the 'Moschetto and Torpedo Districts' of California" - Kurutz.

        The Meaning of Words: Analysed into Words and Unverbal Things, and Unverbal things Classified into Intellections, Sensations, and Emotions.

      D. Appleton and Co., New York 1854 - 1 blank leaf + half title + TP + [5] = Dedication page + [7]-12 = Preface + [13]-16 = Contents + [17]-256 + 1 blank leaf; large 12mo. Inscribed First Edition.Inscribed by Johnson on the front flyleaf "The Utica Observer // with the respects of the // Author". With the distinguished art historian Meyer Schapiro's small book ticket to the top of the front paste-down.The pioneering book on philosophical semantics - this is Johnson's third and most widely read book on language. He is America' first important philosopher of language,Johnson, Alexander Bryan (1786-1867) was an American philosopher and a pioneering semanticist. He was born in England but emigrated to the USA when he was 15 years old. He eventually became a wealthy banker in Utica, NY. Johnson anticipated many of the concerns of logical positivism and modern linguistic philosophy, but his views were ignored in his lifetime and were lost sight of for nearly a century. He held that a statement meant, for a speaker, whatever evidence he adduced or could adduce in its support: Language does not explain the world, rather the world explains language. He showed that many philosophical problems were the result of projecting distinctions of language onto nature, resulting in confusion. His books included The Philosophy of Human Knowledge; or A Treatise on Language (1828), Treatise on Language (1836), Religion in its Relation to Present Life (1841), The Philosophical Emperor (1841), and The Meaning of Words (1854), Physiology of the Senses (1856). In addition to his philosophical works Johnson wrote on politics, economics, and banking. Publisher's blind-embossed brown cloth with gilt-stamped spine. The covers have a few small spots and there is a light 'dent' to the foredge of the front board. The spine is very lightly sunned and fraying just a bit at the bottom. Inscribed on the front fly leaf with the respects of the Author". The first and last gatherings are lightly foxed. A very pretty copy of the extremely scarce work. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

The appeal of the book was broad, as Raffet managed to capture the interest of "the military expert and the engineer, the captain and the simply curious like ourselves." "The wild scenery and exotic architecture of the region are displayed; cities and villages alternate with rivers, plains, and mountains. Hungarian, Tartar, and gypsy life is shown with a vivid command of "local colour". Provenance: Nelson L. Robinson's book plate (school house with greek) on verso. Signed by Nelson Robinson, 1908.

        Walden; or, Life in the Woods

      Boston: Ticknor and Fields,, 1854. Octavo. Original brown ribbed cloth, title gilt to spine, large decorative device within blind panels to the boards, pale yellow endpapers. In a custom blue quarter morocco slipcase and chemise. Wood-engraved title-page vignette of Thoreau's hut, chart of Walden Pond, and 8-page publisher's catalogue dated April 1854. Small "ex libris" sticker and cataloguing entry to front pastedown. Binding very lightly rubbed with a few worn spots to head and tail of spine, very light foxing to endpapers and title page. An exceptionally clean and fresh copy. First edition. Following the failure of his first book A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, Walden was not a runaway success. The edition of 2,000 took five years to sell through, but it was from the very first an immensely influential text, and remains so today: "For almost a hundred years an inspiration to nature lovers, to philosophers, to sociologists and to persons who love to read the English language written with clarity" (Grolier). "Most copies have publisher's advertisements inserted at the back with varying dates of no known bibliographical significance" (BAL), though April is the earliest. With the bookplate of American journalist and newspaper publisher James Strohn Copley (1916?-1973) to the chemise.

        Printed announcement of the death of Charles Baudin

      Paris: 8 June, 1854. Sheet of wove paper 262 x 210 mm., printed with black mourning border, old central fold; very good. The death of Charles Baudin. Rare obituary notice for Charles Baudin, who had sailed as a young man on the Baudin expedition to the Terres Australes; Charles was not related to the commander Nicolas Baudin.Baudin (1792-1854) sailed as a midshipman on the Géographe, but on his return became active in the Napoleonic Wars, seeing a great deal of action against the British. He remained loyal to Napoleon (he was one of the officers who tried to convey the Emperor through the blockade after Waterloo), and as a result was sidelined into the merchant marine after 1816. He eventually returned to active service after 1830, and rose to the rank of Rear Admiral, notably seeing action in the famous "Pastry War" against Mexico in 1838. His later career saw him briefly deployed to South America, before he returned to take over the French Mediterranean Fleet. He spent his retirement in Ischia, but as this sheet confirms, actually died in Paris and was interred there.The sheet announces the death of Charles Baudin at Paris on 7 June 1854, and was printed at the behest primarily of his widow "Madame l'Amirale", but also with notice of other members of his family including his children. Unusually brief, it does not list any of his manifold achievements, but does provide details of the proposed funeral: the obsequies will take place on 9 June, and mourners are asked to gather at the mortuary, 40 Rue d'Angoulême-Saint-Honoré, at ten in the morning, with the interment to take place immediately following in the "cimitière du Nord"

        GILBART PRIZE ESSAY ON THE ADAPTATION OF RECENT DISCOVERIES AND INVENTIONS IN SCIENCE AND ART TO THE PURPOSES OF PRACTICAL BANKING|THE

      London: Groombridge and Sons, 1854. modern cloth, rear pastedown used to mount thirteen specimens of red wax seals, top edge gilt, foredge uncut. 8vo. modern cloth, rear pastedown used to mount thirteen specimens of red wax seals, top edge gilt, foredge uncut. vii, 356 pages, with 90 illustrations, engravings, and specimens. Third edition, first illustrated edition. (Bridson & Wakeman B59; Honeyman no.2844; absent from AMEX Coll. Cat.). A fascinating book. J.W. Gilbart, manager of the London and Westminster Bank, offered a prize for the essay that best showed how the articles and inventions shown at the Great Exhibition of 1851 could be put to service in the banking industry. This essay by Granville Sharp won. The first two editions did not include the illustrations and samples. For this third edition, the publisher collected handbills, trade catalogues, flyers, samples, and ephemera from each of the exhibitors and bound them with the essay. This edition thus served as a virtual trade catalogue for the banking industry. Among the widely varied specimens are checks, security paper and envelopes, watermarking techniques, paper samples, banknotes illustrating various engraving techniques, photographic reproductions illustrating procedures to foil counterfeiting of banknotes, seal cutters, and ink specimen sheets filled out by hand, as well as color lithographic illustrations. Also includes catalogues for office machine manufacturers and materials on bank buildings, interior decoration, plumbing, and security measures. This copy is missing eighteen plates and two are damaged, viz, #3 Perkins' Bank Note, with combination of difficult engraving, #3A Ditto "faced" upon Perkins and Co's patent for the prevention of anastatic and photographic forgery, #6 Fisher's bank note, printed by one impression, #7 Ditto, Bill of Exchange, ditto, #9 Batho's Water Colour cheque, "London and Westminster Bank", #11 Ditto, Water Colour and Copper Plate Cheque, at two impressions, "Harris and Co., Bradford", #13 Nissen's Cheques, upon paper tinted in the pulp, #13G-H, & 13J-M Various Lithographic Cheques and Imitations, #14 Portal's watermark for Bank Notes, by Moulds and Dies, #15 Saunders' Watermark, #16 Ditto, #17 Wildes' Floreated Watermark, #18 Saunders' Parchment Paper for Bank Notes, &c., &c., #89 Horne's decorations. #13F has the signature cut out, and #51 has the specimen envelope removed. The Honeyman copy was also missing other plates and, indeed, a check of all known copies would probably yield various plates missing in the different copies as these copies were individually put together from available samples. With the bookplate of Gavin Bridson. Front pastedown rubbed.

        An Appeal on behalf of the famishing Jews in the Holy Land

      Printed by Wertheimer and Col,, Circus Place, Finsbury Circus, London 1854 - OCLC: Libraries worldwide that own item: 3. Letters to and from Sir Moses Montefiore, Chief Rabbi Adler, and the representatives rabbis from the Holy Land's four Holy Cities. Modern wrappers. 8vo. A pastoral letter by Chief Rabbi Nathan Adler addressed to the Jews of the British Empire and North America and issued at the urging of Sir Moses Montefiore. THe Crimean War (1853-1856) had wrought havoc in Palestine as the indigent Jews there, verging on starvation, were cut off from the flow of alms that prmarily stemmed from their co-religionists in Russia. As a consequence, Jerusalem Consul James Finn and his wife set up a network of Evangelical Christian provision to provide relief. This Sir Moses found unacceptable and hence he spearheaded this charitable campaign that was to spread across the Jewish world. In time, what became known as the Holy Land Relief Fund, proved to be enormously successful . See Abigail Green, Moses Montefiore: Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero (2010), pages232-236.
