The work is translated by Countess Krockow von Wickerode.

        ADDRESS OF THE BOARD OF MANAGERS OF THE WASHINGTON NATIONAL MONUMENT SOCIETY, TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES [caption title].

      Washington: H. Polkenhorn, 1855. - Broadside, 12 1/4 x 7 1/2 inches. Printed in two columns within an ornamental border. Light old folds. Near fine. Rare broadside soliciting donations in order to resume and complete the construction of the Washington Monument in Washington, DC. In 1833 citizens gathered and formed the Washington National Monument Society, the sole purpose of which was to erect a fitting monument in George Washington's name. The project did not get underway until 1848, when President Zachary Taylor laid the first cornerstone on July 4 and construction finally began. By 1854, however, donations had ceased and the project was once again stalled. This broadside is a renewed call by the Society for funds to finish the project. The text is tinged with a heavy dose of scolding that the American people have neglected their duty in finishing the job. It explains that the original estimate for the entire monument was $1.22 million, but as yet only $230,000 had been spent. If Americans ask why the project is incomplete, the Society responds directly: "it is your neglect." The text goes on: "You, the people of this broad and happy land; you, the children of Washington; you, to whom he has left the priceless bequest of his services, and his love; have held back the contribution needed from each to erect to his memory a suitable Monument in the National Metropolis.We call upon each man who this day walks erect in all the panoply of freedom in this broad land, who is not dead to the common impulses of humanity; who is worthy in the least degree of the countless and diversified blessings by which he is surrounded, we call upon men everywhere to contribute each his mite.Let every man, then, who feels his heart beat with American pulsations, and every man who reveres the name of Washington, singly or in companies, communicate directly with our Secretary." The broadside also announces that a new Board of Managers of the Society has been appointed, and gives their names at the bottom. The printed name of Thomas D. Sandy has been crossed out and the name of Josiah Polk has been written in manuscript below it; and the name of General Agent Jonathan Wilson has been added in manuscript as well. Ultimately, the project was not completed until 1884. No copies of this call to action to complete the Washington Monument are listed in OCLC.

        My Bondage and My Freedom. Part I. Life as a Slave. Part II. Life as a Freeman

      New York and Auburn: Miller, Orton & Mulligan, 1855. xxxi,[1],464,[8]pp. Octavo. Medium brown cloth, decorated in blind, spine lettered in gilt. Portrait frontis and two plates.Introduction by James M'Cune Smith.First edition of Douglass's expanded autobiography after his Narrative of 1845, discussing in greater detail his transition from bondage to liberty. In the preface to the 2003 Modern Library edition, John Stauffer writes, "My Bondage and My Freedom, [is] a deep meditation on the meaning of slavery, race, and freedom, and on the power of faith and literacy, as well as a portrait of an individual and a nation a few years before the Civil War. As his narrative unfolds, Frederick Douglass—abolitionist, journalist, orator, and one of the most powerful voices to emerge from the American civil rights movement—transforms himself from slave to fugitive to reformer, leaving behind a legacy of social, intellectual, and political thought. The 1855 text includes Douglass's original Appendix, composed of excerpts from the author's speeches as well as a letter he wrote to his former master.Condition: A very nice 1st edition, in good condition throughout. There's some spotting and foxing (relatively light) particularly around the tissue guards and frontis (please see photos). No marks, tears, loose page, no previous owner's name. Binding is good.

      Rudolph Ackermann, London 1855 - 4to - over 9¾. Book. VG. 77 handcolored plates, plus three additional extra title page color illustrations. This is one of Rowlandson's most famous set of illustrations, and Combe's light satiric verse was a perennial favorite into the twentieth century, when its sort of fluent rhyming fell out of favor. Syntax has to be one of the great imaginative creations of the English language literature, though. He is modeled on picaresque figures such as Don Quixote. Wear to upper spine tips, all volumes. Generally clean interiors. A few loose preliminaries in vol 3, but still holding. A few pages are brittle yet clean. Overall, VG. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Journal kept during the Russian War:

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans,, 1855. From the Departure of the Army from England in April, 1854, to the Fall of Sebastopol. Octavo. Original brown blind-stamped sand-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine, terracotta endpapers with ads to the pastedowns. A little rubbed, corners bumped, spine sunned, light browning, else a very good copy. First edition. Elusive and highly desirable narrative of the Crimean War by the wife of Paymaster Henry Duberly of the 8th Hussars, part of the legendary light brigade. "Although she missed the battle of the Alma and saw only the aftermath of the battle of Inkerman, she witnessed the cavalry charges at Balaklava and the assault on Malakhov, experienced the winter privations, and rode into Sevastopol soon after it fell. Fanny recorded these events daily. She possessed a ready pen, eyes perceptive to detail, youthful self-confidence, and an incisive style softened by candid pathos. Anonymous extracts from her letters home were leaked to the London press, encouraging her to ask her sister Selina's husband, Francis Marx, to edit her journal for publication. He toned down suspected indiscretions and the book reads less vividly than her letters (now held in the British Library), but a convincing realism survived the excisions and the Journal Kept during the Russian War sold well at Christmas 1855. Readers who anticipated a more heroic romanticism were, however, left uneasy, while Queen Victoria was offended by Fanny's ingenuous wilfulness" (ODNB).

        Autograph letter signed

      1855. Signed. LONGSTREET, James. Autograph letter signed. Fort Bliss, Texas, October 1, 1855. Single sheet of lined paper, measuring 7-1/2 by 10 inches. $1800.Desirable 1855 autograph letter from James Longstreet to Chief of Ordnance Colonel Henry Knox Craig written while Longstreet was serving on the Texas frontier at Fort Bliss and discussing ordnance stores, twice signed by Longstreet.The letter reads: ""Fort Bliss Texas Oct 1st 1855—Colo. H.K. Craig. Chief of Ordnance. Sir. Enclosed I have the honor to submit my return of the ordnance and ordnance stores belonging to this Post for part of the third quarter of this year. I remain Sir very respect'y Your Mt. Obt. Servt. James Longstreet. Captain 8th Inf. Bt. Maj."" The opposite side bears a return address also in Longstreet's hand and bearing his signed name. This early letter was written by Longstreet to Colonel Henry Knox Craig (later General). In 1855, Longstreet was serving on frontier duty in Texas. He was regarded as a brave veteran of the Mexican-American War who had suffered a thigh wound and endured a lengthy recovery. In Texas, Longstreet was primarily engaged in scouting missions and rather more pedestrian service as a paymaster. He was also already involved in the cause of preserving slavery, planning a strategy to pull Mexico into the Union of a slave state. His correspondent, Colonel Craig, likewise had a distinguished early career and, in the 1830s, was assigned to the Ordnance Corps. He was then made Chief of Ordnance under General Taylor during the Mexican War. When peace came, Craig found a new mission—maintaining arms stores in an era of reduced defense budget allocations. His mission proved prescient as the years of his stockpiling were those that preceded the Civil War. Craig served in an advisory capacity following his retirement during the Civil War and was brevetted brigadier general in 1865 in recognition of his service. Small paper repair and mildly toned fold creases. Near-fine condition.

        Little Dorrit

      1855. First Edition . DICKENS, Charles. Little Dorrit. London: Bradbury and Evans, December 1855-June 1857. Nineteen parts (20 numbers). Octavo, original pictorial blue paper wrappers. Housed in a custom cloth chemise and half morocco clamshell box. $4200.First edition, first issue, in the original serialized parts, with cover design and illustrations by Hablot Knight Browne. An excellent copy.Little Dorrit ""is a wonderfully rich novel— rich in ideas, rich in characterization, rich in incident, and written in a richly imaginative proseÂ…many critics regard it as Dickens' masterpiece"" (Watts, 108). ""So it is that in Little Dorrit Dickens mounts his single most ferocious onslaught against England and English society; against its government, against its financiers, against its artists, and even against its ordinary citizensÂ… In Little Dorrit, money itself is seen to be a faithless and corrupt delusion. Even when the Dorrits become rich, they cannot escape their past. The only hope is to be found in endurance, which was precisely the message [Dickens] was giving to some of his correspondents in the same period"" (Ackroyd, 758). Complete with all text, titles, plates, and errata called for in the first issue, including the character name ""Rigaud"" rather than ""Blandois"" on pp. 469, 470, 472, and 474, and the subsequent correction slip bound in at page 481 in Number XVI. All numbers with all advertisements as called for by Hatton & Cleaver with the following minor exceptions: without the Bradbury & Evans slip and the four-page ""Cyclopedia of Biography"" ads at back of Part 9; ""The Wreck of the Golden Mary"" slip at the front of Part 13; the two-page ""Royal Insurance Company"" slip at the back of part 19/20. With two sets of the four-page ""Dr. DeJongh's"" ads in Part 10; the Bradbury & Evans ads in Part 1 are numbered [1], 2-15[16], not [1]-16; the ""Theatre Royal"" slip in Part 1 is on orange paper, not yellow.

        New Testament Chinese - High Wen-Li.

      1855. In-8° (cm. 20,5 x 13,8), frontespizio in carta giallina e 140 cc., bella legatura inglese in pieno zigrino verde, titolo e fregi in oro al dorso, ai piatti triplice filetto in oro, dentelle interna. Rara e importante traduzione del Nuovo Testamento conosciuta come "Delegates Version". Variante A con antichi caratteri al frontespizio (seal character). La Delegates' Version: Nel 1842 molti missionari in Cina furono dell'opinione che fosse opportuno cooperare per pubblicare una nuova e migliorata traduzione cinese della Bibbia, usando i termini concordati da diverse denominazioni. Nell' agosto del 1843 quindici delegati delle società missionarie britanniche e americane si incontrarono a Hong Kong per la prima conferenza missionaria e decisero di organizzare una commissione centrale con delle sottocommissioni regionali con lo scopo di tradurre la Bibbia. I manoscritti creati in ciascuna sottocommissione regionale dovevano essere rivisti da rappresentanti di altre sottocommissioni e approvati dalla commissione centrale. Il Textus Receptus fu la base per le traduzioni. Nel 1850 furono pubblicati i quattro vangeli, seguiti dal Nuovo Testamento, apparso nel 1852 e dall'Antico Testamento pubblicato nel 1854.

        Landscape Scenery. Illustrating Sydney, Parramatta, [etc]...

      Sydney & Melbourne: 1855. Oblong quarto, engraved title-page and 38 engraved handcoloured plates; original cloth, all edges gilt, "Australian Keepsake 1855" lettered on the upper board in gilt. Frederick Terry (1827-1869) was one of the better landscape artists working in Sydney during the mid-nineteenth century. Influenced by Conrad Martens, his work was included in the Paris Exhibition of 1855, the first showing of Australian pictures in Paris. The finely executed oval engravings that comprise this album are in a style not often seen in colonial art. Using a delicate, well-balanced oval image, Terry captures the mood of his landscape in a method similar to that employed by the English artist Birket Foster, succeeding in capturing "the romantic beauty of the unrivalled Harbour of Port Jackson".This is a fresh copy of a beautiful view book with good early handcolouring.

        Journal kept during the Russian War: From the Departure of the Army from England in April, 1854, to the Fall of Sebastopol.

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1855 - Octavo. Original brown blind-stamped sand-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine, terracotta endpapers with ads to the pastedowns. A little rubbed, corners bumped, spine sunned, light browning, else a very good copy. First edition. Elusive and highly desirable narrative of the Crimean War by the wife of Paymaster Henry Duberly of the 8th Hussars, part of the legendary light brigade. "Although she missed the battle of the Alma and saw only the aftermath of the battle of Inkerman, she witnessed the cavalry charges at Balaklava and the assault on Malakhov, experienced the winter privations, and rode into Sevastopol soon after it fell. Fanny recorded these events daily. She possessed a ready pen, eyes perceptive to detail, youthful self-confidence, and an incisive style softened by candid pathos. Anonymous extracts from her letters home were leaked to the London press, encouraging her to ask her sister Selina's husband, Francis Marx, to edit her journal for publication. He toned down suspected indiscretions and the book reads less vividly than her letters (now held in the British Library), but a convincing realism survived the excisions and the Journal Kept during the Russian War sold well at Christmas 1855. Readers who anticipated a more heroic romanticism were, however, left uneasy, while Queen Victoria was offended by Fanny's ingenuous wilfulness" (ODNB). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Ledger Account Book - North Fork, Trinity County, California

      Good. 1855. Hardcover. Ledger account book of merchant Jacob Weinheimer of North Fork of the Trinity River, California with entries between March 1855 and November 1857. Brown paper boards with black leather spine. Measures 15" tall by 6 1/4" wide. Boards are heavily worn and spine is heavily cracked and chipped. Binding is separated in the middle of book, with a few leaves loose. This account book gives a vivid picture of life in a remote mining town in Northern California. The account book includes the name of the customer or company on top of the page, with the date and items purchased, along with quantities and prices, and vertical or horizontal lines designating when an account had been paid. Weinheimer was clearly fluent in German, but less so English; many English words and names are misspelled, whereas the names of German customers are carefully spelled, right down to the umlauts over vowels. One of the first pages of the book gives the location of the store and the date of the earliest entry: "North Fork of the Trinity Rev, March 21, 55." The town of North Fork was established around 1851 soon after gold mining began in that area. Weinheimer arrived in 1853 to mine and soon thereafter begin his general store and freighting business. He sold a wide range of goods at his store including all types of food products, tobacco, alcoholic beverages, mining supplies, clothing, tools and household goods. Many of his sales are for small amounts of items, probably to town dwellers, but some are for large quantities of food and mining equipment. For instance, Mr. T. Yuong of East Fork, a neighboring mining camp, purchased on February 12, 1856 "1 iron pan, $20.00; 1 coffe pot $1.50; 1 iron camp cetle [kettle] $1.50; 1 woden bockert [bucket] $1.25; 2 tin cops $.80; 1 pick $7.00" and on February 22 "50lbs flour @ .15, $7.50; 15lbs baens[beans] @.25, $3.75; 15lbs Manille sugar @ .25, $3.75; 18 ½ lb bacon @.40, $7.30; 6lbs coffe @ .35, $2.10; 50lbs potatoes @ .10, $5.00; 4lbs salt @ .25, $1.00; 1 shovle [shovel]." His customers comprised of many Germans, English and Scottish, and a few French and Chinese individuals. One customer of note was Harmon Schlomer who arrived in North Fork in 1855 and opened a blacksmith shop which is still standing today. Weinheimer supplied Schlomer with some of the basic supplies needed for his profession. Schlomer purchased "6 sledge hammer $39.72; 45 sheets of iron @.19, $8.55; 102 half sheets of iron @ .19, $21.43; and 2 dozen pick handles, 18.50." Another person of note that spent large amounts of money at Weinheimer's store was the Scotsman, Joseph McGillivray, who had one of the finest farming enterprises in the county which supported 10,000 hop vines and 20,000 fruit trees. Weinheimer's freighting business began on a small scale by delivering orders such as those of McGillivray and Schlomer, and purchasing items in Shasta and Weaverville for his customers. In 1858 he gave up his general store and focused on his freighting business, hauling goods to mining camps and other settlements throughout Northern California and the Northwest. Later in life he returned to St Louis where he was born, and established himself as a tobacco merchant until the end of his days. The name of North Fork was changed to Helena in 1890 and is now on the National Register of Historic Places. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall; 192 pp .

        Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to El-Medinah and Meccah

      1855. First Edition . BURTON, Richard Francis. Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to El-Medinah and Meccah. London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1855-56. Three volumes. Octavo, early 20th-century three-quarter brown morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $16,000.First edition of ""a most remarkable work of the highest value"" (T.E. Lawrence), Burton's scarce and important illustrated narrative of his journey to Mecca, with five full-page color chromolithographs, eight tinted plates, one black-and-white plate, three plans (two folding), and a folding map. Handsomely bound.After years of studying Oriental customs and manners, Burton offered his services to the Royal Geographical Society ""for the purpose of removing that opprobrium to modern adventure, the huge white blot which in our maps still notes the Eastern and Central Regions of Arabia"" (Penzer, 44). Burton resolved to wend his way to Mecca to observe Muslim rites witnessed by few westerners. Donning a variety of disguises and learning the mannerisms common to Islam— how to dress, eat, sit, sleep, pray, etc.— Burton was accepted as a native. Over the course of his journey he visited the prophet Mohammed's tomb (which was located not, as many Christians had hitherto believed, in Mecca, but in Medina); commented extensively on the practice of female circumcision; and brought back the first accurate observations by a Westerner on the holiest of Muslim holy cities, Mecca. In his bibliography of Burton's works, Norman Penzer remarks, ""I questioned Colonel Lawrence [i.e., ""Lawrence of Arabia""] about the accuracy of Burton's description of the journey to Mecca and Medina, and he said that it was absolutely correct in every detail"" (Penzer, 7). Bound without publisher's catalogue at rear of Volume I. Penzer, 44-50. Interiors clean and fine; contemporary morocco very handsome. An about-fine copy.
