        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.

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.

        Darton's Children's Toy Books, Printed in Oil Colours, and Warranted to Clean with Water, without Injury: or, on cloth, as Indestructible Books, One Shilling Each. Stories of Wild Animals. By the author of "Chickseed without Chickweed"

Scarce juvenile booklet, with a lovely full color chromolithograph of a kangaroo in mid hop, with trees and blue sky in the background. Other animals include the lion, tiger, bear (illustration of Polar Bear), elephant, fox, zebra, and monkey. Advertising copy of the time for these "toy books" boasts, "the superiority of the greater number of these juvenile books consist in their being printed in oil colours; so that children can wash them, and the colours will not come off. The colouring is uniform, bright, and most attractive. Another great feature is, that although they are cheerful and amusing, they are also rational, and the pictures free from coarseness and the text from vulgarity". & & The author of 'Chick-seed without Chickweed' was Mary Elizabeth Southwell Leathley (1818 - 1899) who was an Irish-born prolific writer of fiction, poetry, and religious stories for children who published her first book at 16. Her most popular book was 'Chick-seed without chickweed; being very easy and entertaining lessons for little children' [ca. 1845] which reportedly sold almost 500,000 copies.& & 8vo, (10pp), not paginated. Slightly dusty, some dark stain has migrated from back to front, but affects only the foredge, with some staining in text not affecting the color illustrations. Not in OCLC or Trove.

        A vocabulary of the English and Malay languages... Considerably enlarged

      An early Malay vocabulary published in Singapore. 1854. Singapore. Mission Press. In 8vo. x + 68 + 99. Old quarter calf, with original covers bound in. Stamp to title, slightly browned. Included in this nineteenth century work on the Malay-English vocabulary is the Bugis language, with an introductory chapter on the alphabets, vowels and consonants used in both the native languages. It includes "for the convenience of seafaring men, nautical words, or such terms as are used in country vessels manned by a Malay or Javanese crew". In 1899, Sweettenham published another vocabulary, which is greatly based upon this one. Keasberry (1811 - 1875) was an independent Protestant missionary born in India; he arrived in Singapore in 1837, and is one of the earliest Protestant missionaries to do so. His missionary work was dedicated to evangelizing the Malay, and becomes important in the field of education and printing, having run a Malay vocational school in conjunction with the Mission Press.

The subsequent history of their difficulties with the citizens of the vicinity is well known. The excitement and troubles constantly increased until 1844, when the two brothers, "Prophet Joseph and Patriarch Hyrum," Smith were arrested and confined in the county jail at Carthage, where they were murdered by a mob on the 27th day of June of that year. In the fall of 1845, the church treated for its safety by promising to leave the State, which it accordingly did in the following winter and spring of 1846." Not in Flake/Draper. A nice pocket map of Illinois.

        Palaeontological Map (British Islands)

      Edinburgh: William Blackwood & Sons, 1854. unbound. Set of 2 maps. Color lithograph. Images measure 20 3/4 x 24 1/4" each. This two-part color-coded map describes the geology and fossil record of the British Isles. Intended as a scientific tool, the map is robustly labeled with notes, tables, and illustrations. The colors attribute particular rock materials to periods in earth's history according to a key at the bottom center of the lower map. The upper map illustrates fossil formations of paleozoic fishes and secondary reptiles, drawn onto small rocks arranged in decorative piles. At the center, below the title, are drawings of mammalian skulls. On the lower map, diagrams to the left and right of the key show ammonites--extinct invertebrate molluscs--belonging to the upper secondary (left) and lower secondary (right) layers of sedimentary deposits. The map was originally part of Johnston's "Physical Atlas of Natural Phenomena." It is in excellent condition. A.K. Johnston (1804-1871) was a Scottish geographer and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. Partnered with his brother William, Johnston maintained a prolific map publishing firm throughout the 19th century. Their output ranged from globes to atlases and wall maps. This map, at once beautiful and informative, offers a fascinating alternative glimpse at the British Isles.

        The County Election

      Line and mezzotint engraving by John Sartain, Philadelphia 1854 - One of the leading American genre painters of the mid-nineteenth century, George Caleb Bingham (1811-1879) created some of the most memorable views of American small town life. Bingham was fascinated by the democratic process and by the ways in which it permeated everyday existence in communities far removed from the big cities. Inspired perhaps by scenes he had witnessed personally, Bingham depicted the days when ballots were handwritten and politicians addressed the local public from soap boxes or tree stumps. In "The County Election," Bingham created another quaint scene which conveyed the ideal of the simple and modest life of 19th-century American communities. While some men seem to cluster in important debates regarding the election at hand, others sit on the outskirts of the scene, lazily observing the commotion. Again, children and pets play in the dust of the unpaved street, seemingly oblivious of the election and the excitement it induces. Nostalgic and sentimental, Bingham's views were perhaps not fully realistic visions of small town American life in the 19th century, but they did represent the ideal of a rural, innocent, and peaceful existence for which so many late 19th-century Americans longed - especially on the eve of the Civil War. Still, Bingham's subtle and splendid engravings offer a glimpse into a time when the democratic system was still, in many ways, a grassroots movement and when all Americans felt eager to participate.

        Little Dorrit

      London: Bradbury & Evans. 1st Edition. Hardcover. FIRST EDITION in book form, a beautiful copy with noted provenance. "Little Dorrit, the saddest of all [Dickens's] novels and also, according to Shaw, 'a more seditious book than Das Kapital' (Shaw on Dickens, 51), brings together scathing criticism of the country's governing institutions (here represented by the all-powerful and all-pervading 'Circumlocution Office'), a vivid portrayal in the story of Mrs Clennam of the harshly Calvinistic version of Christianity that was so strong in Victorian culture, and a depiction of the public greed and gullibility that produces the frenzy of speculation associated with the activity of the swindling financier Mr Merdle, together with Dickens's deeper personal preoccupations about his childhood sufferings and his father's shaming imprisonment in the Marshalsea. Dickens's attack on the inefficiency and ineptitude of the aristocratic management of the Royal Literary Fund and his repeated but vain attempts, made with Forster and others, to reform it (1854-8) were another manifestation of his fierce exasperation at this time with the state of contemporary public life" (Dictionary of National Biography). "Little Dorrit stands between Bleak House and Our Mutual Friend as the second of Dickens' three great panoramic novels. Each of these novels presents a broad picture of all levels of society and their interactions... But Little Dorrit in many ways goes beyond its predecessors in its analysis of the conditions of life of commercial and urban man, and in the symbolic unity of its conception" (Miller, Charles Dickens: The World of his Novels). First issue, with the required points (three line errata on page xiv, "William" for "Frederick" on page 317 line 27, B2 instead of BB2 on pp. 371; "Rigaud" for "Blandois" on pp. 469ff). Provenance: From the collection of Leonard Daneham Cunliffe, former Deputy Governor of the Bank of England and one of Britain's most distinguished collectors. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1857. Complete with engraved title, etched frontispiece, and 38 plates by Phiz. Octavo, contemporary full polished calf gilt by Rimell; marbled endpapers, gilt dentelles, all edges gilt. Text and plates remarkably clean. Exquisite contemporary binding in fine condition. An outstanding copy, rare in such fine condition.
