        COLVILLE'S SACRAMENTO DIRECTORY VOLUME VI. FOR THE YEAR COMMENCING MAY, 1856: EMBRACING A GENERAL AND BUSINESS REGISTER OF CITIZENS, WITH STATISTICAL TABLES, HISTORICAL REFERENCES, BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES, etc. IN FINE, A GAZETTEER OF THE CITY...

      San Francisco: Printed by Monson, Valentine & Co., 1856. Original half sheep and printed green boards, spine gilt. Boards rubbed, stained, and edgeworn. Bookplate on front free endpaper. A touch of occasional foxing or tanning, but generally quite clean and neat internally. A very good copy. In a cloth chemise and half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. A very nice copy, in original condition, of an early and rare Sacramento directory. This is the fourth and last of Colville's annual Sacramento directories (the first was published in 1853) and only the fifth Sacramento directory overall. Why Colville referred to this 1856 directory as "Volume VI" on the titlepage is unknown. It is the most substantial Sacramento directory to date, and the first to feature biographical sketches of notable residents, as well as descriptions within the directory of certain businesses, fire companies, churches, etc. The directory is prefaced by a lengthy description of the city, its civic structure, public utilities, and private businesses. The front board is taken up by an advertisement for Wells Fargo's banking and express services, and a multitude of ads appear throughout the text. Included are notices for druggists, hotels, theatres, stone cutters, attorneys, machinists, stage and steam companies, bakeries and ice vendors, booksellers, and more. Prominent among the ads is a full-page notice for Stanford Brothers merchants, operated by Leland Stanford, who would become one of the "Big Four" railroad barons, serve as governor of California, and found Stanford University.

A very good copy. First edition. This copy with an interesting autograph letter signed by the author, apparently a response to an inquiry after his unusual servant from one Gerald Ponsonby, written on Athenaeum Club stationery with their blind-stamp, and dated 20 July 1856, the year of publication: "the name of my servant is Matteo Thomas. He is an Armenian, a native of Constantinople & subject of the Sultan of Turkey. I have dictated him to obtain a passport at his embassy - Believe me"; in another letter, headed 18 Duke Street, St James, 16 February 1836, Sandwith politely declines an invitation from an unnamed female recipient. Sandwith travelled to Turkey in 1849 having failed to establish himself as a doctor in London, and by 1851 was appointed to run the British hospital in Constantinople. "At the outbreak of war in 1854 he joined the irregular force organized by General Beatson as staff surgeon and upon its disbandment he became the chief military officer for British and Turkish forces at Kars. His medical and organizational skills were pushed to the limit when the Russian siege of Kars led to starvation and rampant cholera among the besieged troops. After the fall of Kars in 1855 Sandwith was the sole British captive to be released by the Russians, in appreciation of his services to the sick and wounded among their forces as well as to his own. With little to cheer about in the Crimean campaign, the British welcomed Sandwith as a hero. He found himself the toast of the country on his return in 1856: he had a private interview with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert; was made CB and received an honorary degree from Oxford University; lectured before the Royal Geographical Society; and was elected a member of the Athenaeum" (ODNB).

        Asplenium Adiantum - nigrum acutum [Black Spleenwort]

      London: Bradbury & Evans, 1856. Colour nature-printed engraving. Very good condition apart from some very minor soiling in the top margin. A beautiful nature-printed plate from Moore's "The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland". Moore's important work on nature printing was one of the first of the genre printed in England. The beautifully executed plates were produced under the direction of Henry Bradbury, England's first nature printer, and are considered to be among the finest pieces of nature printing ever completed. The plates were produced "... by passing the plant, under pressure, between a plate of soft lead from which an electrotype could be made" (Blunt). As a result, they recorded the smallest details of flowers and the finest venations of leaves. Bradbury, whose father was of the publishing house Bradbury & Evans, studied at the Imperial Printing Office in Vienna. His interest in printing extended to "... the production of bank notes and the security of paper money, on which he discoursed at the Royal Institute" (DNB) and to the history of printing. He had many ideas for lavish and extensive works, including nature-printed books on fungi and trees and a work on the graphic arts of the nineteenth century, but none of these were ever realised. He died in 1860 at the age of twenty-nine. Cf. Nissen BBI 1400; cf. Stafleu and Cowan TL2 6275; cf. DeBelder 237; cf. Cave and Wakeman 25; cf. Fischer 89; cf. Hofer Bequest 74n.

      Uriah Hunt & Son, Philadelphia 1856 - First edition. Octavo. Original cloth. Bookplate of a defunct library on the front pastedown, pocket removed from the rear pastedown and call letters on the spine, and cloth worn down at the spine ends, still a bright, very good copy. This copy Inscribed by the subject of the case: "H.G. Jones, Esq. with respects of P. Williamson." The recipient was almost certainly Horatio Gates Jones, a historian, and the son of the first pastor of the Lower Merion Baptist Church. Williamson, the white secretary of the Pennsylvania Abolition Society, helped three slaves to escape at the behest of William Still, and then legally challenged the Fugitive Slave Law. He was convicted of contempt of court by the pro-slavery judge when he refused to produce the freed slaves, and served a three-month prison sentence, where he received hundreds of visitors including Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman. This account is uncommon, especially signed by Williamson himself. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        LIBERTY, THE FAIR MAID OF KANSAS - IN THE HANDS OF THE BORDER RUFFIANS

      [Philadelphia: John L. Magee, 1856. Toned, with irregular further darkening in the margins, not affecting image. Upper margin with several small tears, one repaired with tape on verso. About good overall. Matted. A powerful American political print, brutally satirizing the Democratic leaders who crafted and passed the Kansas- Nebraska Act of 1854, one of the most controversial and divisive pieces of legislation of the antebellum era. The Kansas-Nebraska Act provided for the eventual admission of those two territories as states, and left the question of whether slavery would be allowed to local popular sovereignty, thereby nullifying the Missouri Compromise and the Compromise of 1850. The main result of the legislation was to further divide the country into anti-slavery "free-soilers" (mostly in the north and represented by the emerging Republican party) and pro- slavery southerners and westerners (represented by the Democrats). Another result was the migration into Kansas (mostly from Missouri) of so-called "border ruffians" who would vote in Kansas elections in a pro-slavery manner, which they hoped would eventually bring Kansas into the Union as a slave state. Violence inevitably followed as "border ruffians" and "free-soilers" fought it out in Kansas in a sort of civil war. This print, which appeared during the presidential campaign of 1856, shows a weak and defenseless Lady Liberty, draped in an American flag, menaced by an array of Democratic politicians and begging for mercy. President Franklin Pierce, dressed in the buckskins of a border ruffian, holds a rifle, with a pistol, knife, tomahawk, and scalp in his belt. He leers at Liberty and assures her that he will protect her in the manner shown "over the left." The left rear of the print shows the home of a settler being burned by ruffians as a helpless, mad widow looks on. Senator Lewis Cass, a longtime supporter of "popular sovereignty," also exhibits bad intentions toward Liberty. On the far right, Senator Stephen Douglas, architect of the Kansas-Nebraska Act, is shown scalping a farmer. On the left James Buchanan, the Democrats' choice to succeed Pierce, and Secretary of State William Marcy empty the pockets of another victim. Other scenes in the background show an attack on an emigrant train, attacks on defenseless men, and the shooting of a helpless woman. The implication of the print is clear: the Democratic leaders who passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act were not only responsible for the environment that led to the crimes being committed in Kansas, they were accomplices themselves. Reilly calls this print "a bitter indictment of the Democratic administration's responsibility for violence and bloodshed in Kansas in the wake of the 1854 Kansas- Nebraska Act." Nevins and Weitenkampf call it "a savage cartoon...[that] caused many previously moderate Northerners to face the slavery issue with new determination." Reilly and others attribute the print to John Magee of Philadelphia, based on stylistic and topical similarities with other prints done by Magee in the period. OCLC locates a total of only seven copies. A powerful print, addressing the most important issue of the day. REILLY, AMERICAN POLITICAL PRINTS, 1856-9. WEITENKAMPF, p.115. MURRELL, p.190; figure 191. NEVINS & WEITENKAMPF, pp.78-79. OCLC 191119979, 299946494, 8631862.

        Krim-Girai, Khan of the Crimea.

      London: John Murray,, 1856. Translated from the German of Theodore Mundt. Octavo. Original red linen-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine, elaborate panelling in blind to the boards, light green surface-paper endpapers. A little rubbed overall, bumped at the corners, head and tail of the spine crumpled and with minor chipping, pale toning, some light foxing, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Uncommon, just eight copies on Copac. A very pleasing association copy, being inscribed "With the Translator's love" on the first blank, and with the bookplate of Lord Raglan to the front pastedown. Richard Henry FitzRoy Somerset, 2nd baron Raglan was married to Eliot's cousin, Susan Caroline, famously his father, recently deceased at the time of presentation, had commanded the British forces in the Crimea, being responsible for the victories at the Alma and at Inkerman, and considered by some to be culpable for the disaster at Balaklava. The 1st baron had died at Sabastopol of a "broken heart" (ODNB) just 10 days after the bloody failure of the assault of 18 June 1855, and in 1858 his successor was gifted Cefntilla Court in Monmouthshire by "1623 of the 'friends, admirers, and comrades' of his father Â… as a mark of gratitude and to enable the family to maintain the port of the ennobled" (Newman, Gwent/Monmouthshire; Buildings of Wales series, p.272). The modern Cefntilla bookplate is mounted beneath Raglan's on the front pastedown. The translator joined the Diplomatic Service from Eton, and served as attaché at Hanover 1849-53; Lisbon from 1851-3; as 2nd paid attaché at Berlin 1853-7; 1st paid attaché at Constantinople, 1857-8 and at St Petersburg 1858-9. Subsequent postings took him to Rio de Janeiro, Athens, Lisbon, and finally Washington. He resigned in 1865 and was elected MP for Devonport in 1866, holding the seat until 1868. He entered the House of Lords in 1870, dying in 1881. The association gains poignancy from the fact that Eliot's elder brother the Hon. Granville Charles Cornwallis Eliot, a captain in the Coldstream Guards, had been killed, shot through the head, at Inkerman. Qirim Giray (?-1769), was one of the most influential rulers of the Crimean Khanate, a scion of the ruling Giray clan, direct descendants of Genghis Khan, and possessed of distinct geopolitical ambitions. "A clever, affable man with a weakness for practical jokes involving severed heads", he aspired to an alliance with Frederick the Great against the Russians, and conspired to similar ends with the baron de Tott, becoming a "close personal friend", who, under Tott's influence, developed "an enthusiasm for French cuisine (especially its wine-based sauces), and requested that Tartuffe be translated into Turkish for performance by the court buffoons Â… the two spent long evenings talking politics inside the crimson-lined tent, Qirim delivering his 'opinions on the abuses and advantages of liberty,on the principles of honour, or the laws and maxims of government, in a manner which would have done honour to Montesquieu himself'" (Reid, Borderland: A Journey through the History of Ukraine, internal quotations from the Memoirs of the Baron de Tott). The author of this work, Theodor Mundt, was a German philologist and librarian, best known for his writings on aesthetics, and for his advocacy of the emancipation of women, who compiled the memoir "on account of its intrinsic interest as well as the relation it bears to the present war". (Preface). An attractively-provenanced and well-preserved copy of this seldom seen and interesting biography.

        D'Albert's Album 1856

      London.: Chappell & Co.. 1856.. Gift book, 14 x 10.25 inches, 131 pp. featuring music by Charles D'Albert and chromolithographic plates by John Brandard. Pebbled cover with gilt lettering; covers loose; corners bumped; spine cracked with substantial loss of covering. Text block remains tightly bound. Volume contains five chromolithographic plates after Brandard (with possible additional hand coloring) plus title page also by Brandard. The six exquisite plates were printed by M. & N. Hanhart. Volume contains music for eighteen compositions by D'Albert. Contents in good clean condition. The five large color plates in this volume represent illustrations used for cover art when D'Albert's compositions were published and sold individually. Space at the top and bottom of the chromo illustrations, left blank as published in the Album, would have been utilized in the sheet music's solo edition for printing the composition's title at top and, at bottom, publisher details. As preserved in the Album, the five chromolithographic plates (plus title) are in near mint condition. (The Presentation page is printed in monochrome and is unattributed.) D'Albert's music with Brandard's illustrations are quite scarce in Album format. The five plates illustrate musical compositions entitled Angelina; The Mountain Daisy; Geneva; The Queen of Gipsies; The Bacchante. .

        The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia.

      London, Day & Son (vol. 3: New York, D. Appleton & Co.), 1855-1856. - 6 volumes bound as 3. Imperial 8vo (30 x 22 cm). With 250 numbered plates (image size 12 x 17 to 15 x 22 cm), including a tinted lithographed portrait of the artist, 6 tinted lithographed title-pages, 2 stone-engraved maps and 239 tinted and double-tinted lithographed and 2 chromolithographed views. Contemporary, richly gold-tooled reddish-brown morocco, side-stitched and oversewn, then sewn on 5 recessed cords, with a hollow back, 5 false bands on the spine, gold-tooled turn-ins, combed and curled marbled endpapers, headbands in red and yellow, gilt and gauffered edges. With thin paper guard leaves facing each plate. Second edition, with reduced illustrations but with more of them double-tinted or chromolithographed, of one of the most splendid and historically important visual records of the Middle East, after drawings by David Roberts (1796-1864) from the sketches he made from life during his travels through what is now Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Lebanon in 1838 and 1839. In Egypt he ventured up the Nile as far as the Nubian temples at Abu Simbel, near the present border with Sudan and travelled by camel through the Sinai to the extraordinary carved-rock buildings of Petra. These had been unknown to Europeans until Burckhardt discovered them in 1812 and 1813, so Roberts's views are among the earliest and are in many ways better than the few predecessors. In Lebanon he ventured as far as Baalbek, which had seen few European visitors before Egypt annexed it in 1832. Other sites he visited and drew include Cairo, Suez, Gaza, Jerusalem and Beirut. He was one of the first Europeans allowed to make drawings of the interior of mosques, so even in well-known cities these too opened a new world to European eyes. His views also provide a very detailed visual record of many sites that were afterward destroyed or disturbed. He drew them during the infancy of photography, before it reached the Middle East and long before it reached maturity there. His views of the modern cities also preserve records of both their architecture and their daily life and he shows spectacular landscapes in the mountains, around the Dead Sea and along the Nile and the Jordan. Roberts, born to a poor (Welsh?) family in Edinburgh, was apprenticed as a house painter, moved to London and worked his way up to paint sets for the Drury Lane Theatre and others. Thanks to patrons who appreciated his talents and hard work he was able to make the expensive and dangerous voyage through the Middle East. George Croly (in volumes 1-3) and William Brockedon (in volumes 4-6) provided explanatory and historical notes on the sites shown in Roberts's views. - Roberts's views were originally published in two separate works, issued in parts in the years 1842 to 1849 and often found together. One centred on the Holy Land, though also including views in other parts of the Middle East, while the other was devoted to Egypt and Nubia. The views in the former were made with only a single tint block and even the latter used fewer tint blocks than the present second edition and only one chromolithograph. The present edition, with sometimes very intricate double tints and two chromolithographs (with black and three tint blocks) is a masterpiece of tinted lithography. Since the lithographers used photographic reductions of the lithographic views of the first edition as an aid to their work, the book also pioneered the use of photography in graphic reproduction. The lithographed title-pages are dated 1855 except for those of vol. 3 (from the simultaneous New York issue, undated) and 6 (1856) but volumes 2-6 include plates dated 1856. The dates of the plates in all six volumes range from 16 April 1855 to 15 December 1856. - The title-page of volume 3 was intended for the simultaneous New York issue, but appears to have always been part of the present copy. In very good condition, with occasional light foxing, mostly on the backs of the plates, and with a faint marginal wat [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Heute nennt sich das Geschlecht von Hövell, ist jedoch nicht mit den ebenfalls aus Westfalen stammenden, namensähnlichen, aber nicht stammesverwandten von Hövel zu verwechseln. Die Familie zählte schon in Dortmund zum Patriziat. Frühe Besitzungen sind 1400 zu Aldenhövel und 1460 zu Emschermühlen bei Dortmund bezeugt. 1509 sind sie auf Lohof und 1636 in Husten bei Arnsberg nachgewiesen. Im Herzogtum Kleve bekleidete die Familie lange Zeit das Holzrichteramt zu Söldermark; ein Lehnsbrief darüber wurde 1691 ausgestellt. 1508 kam mit Gotthard III. von Hoeveln (der Vorname Gotthard wurde in diesem Familienzweig immer weitergegeben) der erste Vertreter dieser Familie nach Lübeck. 1527 wurde er Ratsherr und 1531 Bürgermeister. Über fünf Generationen hinweg war danach ein Mitglied der Familie im Lübecker Rat vertreten. Unter Gotthard VII. von Höveln, der 1640 in den Rat und 1654 zum Bürgermeister gewählt wurde, kam es jedoch zum Verwürfnis mit der Stadt über die bürgerschaftlichen Reformen, die zum Kassarezess und zum Bürgerrezess führten. Er stellte 1667 sein Gut Moisling unter dänischen Schutz, schied aus dem Rat aus und wurde holsteinischer Vizekanzler in Glückstadt. In die exklusive Zirkelgesellschaft wurde erst Georg Anton von Höveln 1758 aufgenommen. Bald darauf starb das Geschlecht in Lübeck aus. Andere Zweige erwarben später Güter in Pommern, Brandenburg und in Ostpreußen und waren vor allem als preußische Offiziere tätig (Wikipedia)..................wenige Seiten mit restaurieten Randeinrissen, Innengelenk angebrochen Versand D: 3,00 EUR

        Mémoire sur le Pancréas et sur le role du suc pancréatique dans les phénomènes digestifs, particulièrement dans la digestion des matières grasses neutres. [In:] Supplément aux Comptes Rendus Hebdomadaires des Séances de l?Académie des Sciences, vol. 1.

      FIRST EDITION. ?Bernard elucidated the digestive functions of the pancreas, especially its role in the breakdown and absorption of fats. Bernard devised the temporary pancreatic fistula ( later improved by Pavlov) in order to collect the juice in its pure state, and demonstrated its role in the first stage of fat metabolism by showing that it acted on fats by a saponification process, i.e. the breakdown of fat into fatty acids and glycerine. This marked a radical departure from previous views of the pancreas, the best of which had conceived of it as a kind of abdominal salivary gland. The final and most complete statement of Bernard?s discoveries occurs in his 1856 Mémoire, published in vol. 1 of the Supplément aux comptes rendus of the Académie des Sciences, and in a very small separate edition? (Norman). The paper is illustrated by the five folding plates printed in exquisite detail, three of which are beautifully hand-coloured.G&M 1000.1: ?The most beautifully illustrated of all Bernard?s writings?

        A COMPLETE EPITOME OF PRACTICAL NAVIGATION, CONTAINING ALL NECESSARY INSTRUCTION FOR KEEPING A SHIP'S RECKONING AT SEA . . . TO WHICH IS ADDED A CORRECT AND EXTENSIVE SET OF TABLES

      London: Printed for the author and sold by Charles Wilson, 1856. "Sixteenth (Stereotyped) Edition." n. Hardcover. 222 x 137 mm (8 3/4 x 5 3/8"). xii, 336; xliv, 360 pp. "Sixteenth (Stereotyped) Edition." Very plain contemporary sprinkled sheep, flat spine divided into panels by single gilt rules, dun-colored endpapers. With nine engraved plates depicting nautical charts and instruments of navigation. Front pastedown with 19th-century ink signature of Charles Watson. Tiny cracks just beginning at top and bottom of joints, minor smudge on upper cover, lower board with small trailing wormhole, minor offsetting from plates, but still AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY, entirely bright, fresh, and clean inside and out. In its original simple sheepskin binding, this copy of the standard navigation guide for the 19th century is a remarkable survival. Hydrographer and navigation writer John William Norie (1772-1843) operated a "nautical academy" for men intending to pursue a career at sea, and he wrote this work after becoming frustrated with the inaccuracies in the navigation manuals that were available to his pupils. The "Tables" mentioned in the title first appeared in 1803; the "Epitome" was issued in 1805; and editions containing one or both were very often reprinted. According to DNB, "Norie's charts and books, particularly the 'Tables' and 'Epitome,' made his name well known among seamen for nearly two centuries, a success due to his teaching ability, prolific output, and commercial shrewdness." This is obviously not an uncommon work, but because it is a practical guide that was generally used until it fell apart, copies like the essentially untouched present example are rarely seen.

        OFFICIAL PROCEEDINGS OF THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION CONVENED IN THE CITY OF PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, ON THE TWENTY-SECOND OF FEBRUARY, 1856.

      Published by the New York Republican Committee,, New-York: 1856 - 32pp. Reinforced spine, foxed and lightly worn. About Good+. 'Republican Documents' printed at head of title, along with an illustration of the Screaming Eagle and 'Washington. Jefferson.' The Party's historic Convention, preparatory to its first nominating convention in June, with the Proceedings; the Letter to the Convention of Frank Blair, who had been elected its President; a letter from Cassius Clay of Kentucky; and the Convention Address, arguing that "the Government of the United States is not administered in accordance with the Constitution, or for the preservation and prosperity of the American Union; but that its powers are systematically wielded FOR THE PROMOTION AND EXTENSION OF THE INTEREST OF SLAVERY." In contrast to the "sentiment of the Founding Fathers," who sought to contain slavery, the country's history demonstrates "the progress of slavery towards ascendancy in the federal government." The atrocities committed in Kansas by the Slave Power, and other assaults on the cause of freedom, are recounted.
