        COLTON'S WESTERN TOURIST AND EMIGRANT'S GUIDE THROUGH THE STATES OF OHIO, MICHIGAN, INDIANA, ILLINOIS, MISSOURI, IOWA, AND WISCONSIN, AND THE TERRITORIES OF MINESOTA [sic], MISSOURI, AND NEBRASKA

      New York: J. H. Colton, 1854. First published in 1839, this updated guide for prospective pioneers contains a handsome newly engraved map of the Midwestern states by J. Calvin Smith, who Wheat tells us "made a fine job of it." As the publisher's advertisment observes, "The great region of the North and West, comprehended in the states of Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, and Wisconsin, and the territories of Min[n]esota, Missouri, and Nebraska, is daily becoming more and more important and interesting. Its vast resources are in a state of rapid development. . . . A few years ago this region, then denominated the 'far west,' was regarded as the outskirts of civilization - it is now (at least the greater portion of it) the residence of an active, vigorous, and intelligent population. . . . Blessed with a soil unsurpassed in fertility, and a salubrious climate; and possessing, by means of its great rivers and lakes, advantages for trade and commerce, it enjoys all the influences that can render a country prosperous and a people happy." While perhaps downplaying the hardships and challenges emigrants would face, the guide provides valuable information on each state, and on routes via land, river and canal that will take the traveller there. The final 24 pages list the maps published by Colton, who is identified by Ristow as the main Eastern publisher fulfilling the need for maps created by the western migration of the mid-19th century.. 155 x 100 mm. (6 x 4"). 89 pp., 23, [1] pp. (ads). Publisher's brown embossed cloth. WITH A LARGE FOLDING HAND-COLORED MAP OF THE REGION BY JOHN CALVIN SMITH, measuring approx. 21 x 26". Title page with bookseller's embossed stamp. Howes S-615; Wheat 4:42. Spine a little frayed at ends, very short crack to head of rear joints, corners slightly rubbed, map with one tiny tear along fold and a two-inch tear at one edge affecting frame and small area of map, the latter with brown stains from early repair attempt, isolated small marginal stains or smudges, otherwise an excellent copy, clean and fresh in a sound binding.

      Wattwiller, 1842-1854. - Spahr studierte Rhetorik und Philosophie in Luxeuil sowie Theologie in Porrentruy, Besancon und Rom. 1830 wurde er Vikar in Porrentruy und gründete 1835 „L'Ami de la Justice", die erste katholische Zeitung in Porrentruy. Nach seinem Widerstand gegen die Badener Artikel floh er aus Angst vor einer Verhaftung nach Frankreich. Von seiner fünfjährigen Haftstrafe wurde er 1840 begandigt und Spahr wurde Pfarrer in Wattwiller. - 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.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Kairo, 28. XII. 1854. - Der französische Forschungsreisende Louis Maurice Adolphe Linant de Bellefonds trat 1831 als leitender Ingenieur in die Bauverwaltung Ägyptens ein, erhielt dort 1837 den Titel Bey und wurde 1862 Generaldirektor der Bauverwaltung und 1869 Bauminister. Obwohl weniger bekannt als Ferdinand de Lesseps, hatte Linant einen maßgeblichen Anteil an der Planung und am Bau des Suezkanals. „Der mittlerweile nicht mehr im diplomatischen Dienst tätige Lesseps erhielt am 30. November 1854 von dem neuen Vizekönig Said Pascha, einem alten Freund, die erste Konzession zum Bau eines noch nicht genauer definierten Kanals durch den Isthmus mittels einer noch zu gründenden, internationalen Gesellschaft. In dieser Konzession wird Linant als Ingenieur des Vizekönigs bei der Gesellschaft [.] bezeichnet. In den folgenden Monaten erarbeitete Linant mit seinem Mitarbeiter Eugène Mougel (1808-1890), einem französischen Wasserbauingenieur, eine ausführlichere Planung des Sueskanals. Lesseps legte diese Planung mit seinem Bericht vom 30. April 1855 dem Vizekönig vor, der sie mit Bescheid vom 19. Mai 1855 zum Inhalt seiner Anordnung bezüglich des weiteren Vorgehens zum Bau des Sueskanals erklärte. In diesem Bescheid wurde festgelegt, dass Linant und Mougel den Verlauf des Kanals im Gelände festlegen, nivellieren und kartieren sollten, Sondierungen vornehmen und Bodenproben nehmen sowie die wesentlichen Lohn- und Materialkosten ermitteln und eine erste Einschätzung der Zahl der benötigten Arbeitskräfte durchführen sollten. Die daraus resultierenden Planungen sollten veröffentlicht und von einer internationalen Kommission beraten werden; danach sollte die endgültige Trasse entschieden werden. Linant war sich jedoch bewusst, dass eine Tätigkeit unmittelbar für die Gesellschaft nicht mit seiner Position als leitender Ministerialbeamter zu vereinbaren sei, und vermied es somit, eine Stellung unmittelbar beim Bau des Sueskanals anzunehmen. Er setzte vielmehr seine Karriere fort, an deren Ende er ägyptischer Bauminister wurde" (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger des auf Französisch abgefassten Briefes 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.

        TO THE DEMOCRATS OF AROOSTOOK COUNTY.

      July 31, 1854, [np]: - Broadside, 12" x 17". Some old folds, several fox spots, couple of short closed margin tears [no loss]. Good+. Signed in type at the end by about 140 loyal Aroostook Democrats. The Kansas-Nebraska Act opened the Mexican Cession to Slavery and thus repealed the 1820 Missouri Compromise. Deep divisions in the Democratic Party resulted. Many Northern Democrats resisted the call of their dominant Southern brethren to populate the newly acquired Territories with slaves. Maine's Hannibal Hamlin, for example, abandoned the Democrats over the Slavery issue, and became a Republican [and Lincoln's running mate in 1860]. This broadside excoriates such apostates, who have joined forces with anti-slavery men "to batten and prey upon the very life of the Democratic Party," and who are "pledged to opposition to the regular democracy." Hyperbolically, the broadside accuses them of opposing the Party's "very EXISTENCE, plotting her ENTIRE OVERTHROW and DESTRUCTION."Not located on OCLC as of March 2017. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

The journal was the organ of the Free Produce Society of Philadelphia and its publisher, George Taylor, managed the city's Free Produce Store. 'Free Produce' included all manners of goods (traditionally made with slave labor) that were produced without any taint of slavery. Such items were much more expensive than slave-produced items, but the most principled Quakers and abolitionists paid the price to keep their consciences clear. Although the Society disbanded in 1856, Taylor kept the store open until after the Civil War when customers no longer saw a reason to patronize him. See The Atlantic Monthly (October, 1868) and Cison's "Quality Came Second" in Main Line Today (March, 2007).Scarce. While digital and microform reprints are common, as of 2017, OCLC shows only a few institutions holding intermittent original issues. Two auction records are on file at the Rare Book Hub.

        Piccoli bronzi del Real Museo Borbonico, distinti per categorie in dieci tavole

      Stamp. di S. Piscopo, Napoli (Naples), Italy 1854 - Green library buckram with original wraps bound in. Cover (brownish printed thick stock), Dedication page, full-page color lithograph of excavators recovering artifacts, plate 1, descriptive text to plates 1+2, plates 2+3, descriptive text for plates 3+4, plates 4+5, descriptive text for plates 5+6, plates 6+7, descriptive text for plates 7+8, plates 8+9, descriptive text for plates 9+10, plate 10 which is then followed by three additional unnumbered plates. The first two of these plates illustrate (10, 8) statuary and the third plate illustrates 31 pieces of jewellery and personal adornment items. This creates a total of 14 color lithographed plates. Carlo Ceci was a curator in the Real Museo Borbonico in Naples, now known as the Museo Archeologico Nazionale. In 1854, he published his Piccoli bronzi del Real Museo Borbonico, distinti per categorie in dieci tavole. As the title indicates, this book focuses on small bronze objects from Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Stabiae. Several of the artifacts illustrated in Ceci's book had been found as early as the eighteenth century, but were still unpublished. Although the Kings of Naples, Charles VII and his son, Ferdinand IV, sponsored the publication of Le antichità di Ercolano (1755-1792), those volumes were primarily concerned with works of art that were considered ancient masterpieces. Furthermore, in Le antichità di Ercolano, objects were categorized according to medium (see, for instance, the pages from volume 1 of the Le Antichità di Ercolano, Le pitture di Ercolano, discussed in "Pompeii and Herculaneum in the 18th Century"). In his own work, Ceci, to some extent, continues this antiquarian tradition: he offers little information regarding the objects' find spots, and limits himself to one medium--bronze. At the same time, he creates a sense of context for these pieces by grouping them according to their function. Ceci's book also reflects a growing interest in all aspects of daily life in the ancient world on the part of scholars and lay viewers alike. (from Google "The Authority of Ruins") The text descriptions of the items illustrated on the plates are provided in Italian and French. All copies located on Worldcat indicate either 10 or 13 plates, thus this copy appears unique. VG, one or two plates tightly trimmed. Previous owner's bookplate inside original cover. Plates are fresh and clean slight soiling here and there on extremities, barcode on last fep (this fep not related to original bound wraps) [Attributes: Soft Cover]
