        Samlede Skrifter. 32 bd.

      Kbhvn. 1854-76. Indbundet i 17 smukke samtidige halvlæderbind rigt dekoreret med guld på ryggen. Bind med svage brugsspor.. Den danske udgave af "Samlede Skrifter" påbegyndtes med udgivelsen af romanen "Improvisatoren"; samme dag dette dobbeltbind udkom, indrykkede forlaget en subskriptionsindbydelse i aviserne, hvoraf det fremgik, at værket ville omfatte 22 bind, at de ville udkomme med 2 bind hver anden måned og at man forpligtede sig til at aftage hele værket. I juli 1855 afsluttedes udgivelsen med bind 21-22 "Mit Liv Eventyr". Efter denne tid udkom der fra tid til anden nye bind, som indeholdt H.C. Andersens senere arbejder. Flere af disse bind er originaludgaver, idet forlaget, for at spare udgivelsen af en ny bog og et nyt bind til 'Samlede Skrifter', i stedet udgav bogen forsynet med dobbelte titelblade, således at det første af disse var bogens egentlige titelblad, det andet titelblad til 'Samlede Skrifter'. Da H. C. Andersen døde i 1875 var der ialt udkommet 28 bind. Efter den tid udkom 6 bind, således at værket ialt kom til at bestå af 33 bind + supplementsbindet "Mit Liv Eventyr. Fortsættelse", der udkom i 1877. BFN 634

        Etching]: View Near Rome (1854)

      Rome 1854 - Original etching. Measures approximately 7.75" x 5.25". Printed on laid paper with full margins, signed and dated in the plate. Near fine. A native Bostonian, during the 1840s Brown became the most important figure in expatriate art circles in Italy. By the 1850s he had a studio in Rome, where he created his many prized landscape paintings and etchings of the Italian countryside, and where he was known as the American "Claude" [Lorrian], for his ability to create atmospheric effects and golden, light-filled skies. The "View Near Rome" is a superb example of his work from this period. [Attributes: First Edition]

        "Statement for supplies taken aboard the Powhatan, the Southampton, and the Mississippi during the Perry Expedition to open the country of Japan. "

      "[Hakodate, Japan". "May 18, 19, 21, 22, 24 and 26, 1854]". "This financial statement, certainly one of the first, if not the first record of a commercial transaction between Japan and The United States, is for items taken aboard the Powhatan, Southampton, and Mississippi at Hakodate in May of 1854. Written in neat kanji and hiragana, often with phonetically spelled American words (""totaru"" for total, ""Mishishippi"" for Mississippi), the statement lists supplies taken on board by date, along with prices and a grand total in the amount of 3,684 gold coins and 29 mon, the Japanese currency before the yen. For example:& & Chives (Asatsuki), 2 straw bags (kamasu)& Cost: 800 Mon& Clams, 1 barrel& Cost: 360 Mon& Sweet potatoes 2 boxes& Cost 1 Kan 700 Mon& Crimson Snapper (Himeuo): 27& Cost: 4 Kan 50 Mon& Mouo (unknown) Fish: 3& Cost: 900 Mon& & April 28th& Fowls: 15& Cost:7 Kan 500 Mon& Hen Eggs: 200& Cost: 5 Kan Mon& Pink Salmons: 30& Cost: 5 Kan 400 Mon& & (The discrepancy in dates is the result of the translation from the old Japanese script.)& & In March of 1852 Commodore Perry received orders to command the East India Squadron on a mission to establish diplomatic relations with Japan. Perry arrived off the coast of Uraga in July 1853, with a letter from President Fillmore intending to enact a treaty similar to the one the U.S. had with China. Priorities were to establish trade, secure ports at which American ships could procure provisions and to ensure better treatment of American sailors shipwrecked off the coast Japan. A treaty would end the long period of isolation that began with Japan's exclusionary policy set in place through a series of edicts and policies of the Tokugawa Shogunate from 1633-1639. After a series of deliberations, Fillmore's letter was accepted and delivered to the Shogun (who was mistakenly thought by the Americans to be the Emperor) and Perry agreed to return the next spring to receive the official response.& & In February of 1854 the squadron reentered Japanese waters and on March 8th Perry landed at Kanagawa to receive the Shogun's response. While it became clear that the issue of trade would have to be decided later, Perry was able to secure two ports, Shimoda and Hakodate (to the north in Hokkaido), for use of American ships to refuel and secure provisions, along with assurances that castaways would be treated with kindness and on March 31st the Treaty of Kanagawa was signed.& & After a brief stop in Shimoda where Perry met with officials and discussed the supply of provisions that were required by the squadron, the Commodore left in the Powhatan for Hakodate where he arrived the morning of May 17th. On May 18th, officials from the squadron landed and requested that supplies be furnished to the ships according to a fixed tariff of prices.& & 9 ½ x 7 inches, 18 pages, 8 leaves (9 ½ x 14 inches) + 1 leaf 9 ½ x 6 inches + 1 leaf 9 ½ x 5 inches, all folded and sewn in the Japanese manner."

        The Life of a Fireman. The race. - "Jump her boys, jump her!"

      New York: Nathaniel Currier, 1854. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by and after Louis Maurer. (Expert repairs to marginal tears, one just touching the image area). 20 1/4 x 27 3/4 inches. A dramatic fire-fighting scene: a fire-fighting team race towards a fire-glow in the background, urged on by their leader, they haul a wheeled water tank and pumper. Louis Maurer was born in Germany, but after a short apprenticeship he emigrated to America. He arrived in New York in August 1851, and initially worked for T. W. Strong at 98 Nassau Street. After meeting Charles Currier, he visited his brother Nathaniel and showed him some of his work. Nathaniel was impressed but directed him to Ives who interviewed all new employees. He was immediately hired and put to work in the basement of 152 Nassau Street where he worked for eight years before leaving, initially because he was offered more money by a rival, but later to set up as a lithographic printer in his own right. This is one of a number of tableaux constituting The Life of the Fireman. It is particularly popular because it includes a view of the cupola and bell tower on City Hall, which later burned down, and because it demonstrates, as the whole series does, the valiant efforts of a volunteer FIre Department, of which Currier was a proud member.

This copy, lacking title page and wrapper, starts with page [1] "HARD TIMES. / By Charles Dickens, Esq. /Furnished in advance exclusively for this Journal." 108 double-column pages, bound in period three-quarter leather and marbled boards.

Much of the information was gleaned from Dutch and English sources, as processed by Valentine. Notable illustrations and tables in this edition include the "Table of the Semi-centennial Mortality of the City of New York...Jan'y 1st, 1804, to Dec. 31st, 1853", Brooklyn Navy Yard, Fulton Street & Market, King's Arms Tavern, Fraunce's Tavern and the Beekman Mansion.

D.T. Valentine (1801-1869) served as the Deputy to the Clerk of the Common Council for thirty-seven years without being promoted to Clerk. Valentine took it upon himself to compile the "Manuals", which he updated and published annually from 1841-1866. Many copies were personalized for prominent officials. This compendium is an excellent source of early New York City history.
