James Russell Lowell (February 22, 1819 – August 12, 1891) was an American Romantic poet, critic, editor, and diplomat. He is associated with the Fireside Poets, a group of New England writers who were among the first American poets who rivaled the popularity of British poets. These poets usually used conventional forms and meters in their poetry, making them suitable for families entertaining at their fireside. CONDITION: Conditions are Good+/Very Good.

        Victoria: with a Description of its Principal Cities... Victoria: with a Description of its Principal Cities, Melbourne and Geelong: and Remarks on the Present State of the Colony; including An Account of the Ballaarat Disturbances, and of the Death of Captain Wise, 40th Regiment

      London: Smith, Elder, and Co., 1856. Octavo, frontispiece and three other plates, a folding coloured map, and four vignette illustrations; a very good copy, complete with the advertisements, in recent full brown calf. A minor classic of the gold-rush era: written by Stoney as a companion to his Residence in Tasmania, this important and valuable addition to the sparse contemporary literature of Eureka is written from the military viewpoint and is, in that sense, unique. His understandably one-sided account of the Eureka affray attempts to justify the soldiers' less than glorious role. It is also one of the significant descriptions of gold-rush Victoria and its value extends well beyond the treatment of Eureka.

        The Landscape Album

      New York: Leavitt and Allen. (1856-1861). Friendship book. Octavo. Full red decorated morocco, all edges gilt. Illustrated with black and white prints of landscapes. Some foxing, one page loose, covers worn with part of spine missing. Owned by Mary Low, this friendship book (sort of like a school yearbook) is inscribed by over forty people, with poems, brief messages of friendship, or religious verse. Some of the people who wrote in the book were Low's family and friends. A majority were her fellow students at the Ladies Collegiate Institute, a short-lived, all-female college in Worcester, Massachusetts. The president of the institute, Werden Reynolds (elected in 1859) also signed the book. The Ladies Collegiate Institute was incorporated in 1854 and opened in 1856. It was located in Davis Hall, which was built in 1852 by the architect Elbridge Boyden, who would later design Worcester's St. Paul's Cathedral. From 1852 to 1854, the building housed the Worcester Medical College. In 1855, the Ladies Collegiate Institute took over the property, only to close in 1860-1861. A nice souvenir of a short-lived enterprise, one of the early educational institutions dedicated to women's higher learning. .

        Jefferson Davis, as Secretary of War, requires officers to pay their enlisted servants - an ironic piece in light of the nature of Davis' personal servants

      "Letter Signed, ""Jeffer: Davis,"" as Secretary of War, 1 page, 7.5"" x 9.75"", Washington, July 2, 1856, to Lt. Horatio Gates Gibson at the Presidio in San Francisco. Light horizontal mailing creases, else very fine condition.""Your letter of January 26 was duly received, claiming that the per diem allowed to soldiers serving in California by the Act of Sept 28 - 1850- would be taken as forming part of the 'pay' of the soldier in computing the commutation allowed for officer[']s servant. In reply I have to say that this question was raised soon after the passage of the Act and decided against the claim upon grounds which appear to me to be sound and the construction then given to the Act cannot now be disturbed."" Horatio Gates Gibson, a Maryland native, graduated from West Point in 1843 and served in the 3rd U.S. Artillery through the start of the Civil War. As captain in the 3rd U.S. Artillery, Gibson served with distinction at Williamsburg and at Antietam, for which he was brevetted Major and Lieutenant Colonel respectively. In 1863, he became Colonel of the 2nd Ohio Heavy Artillery, serving with that regiment until the end of the war, whereupon he returned to the 3rd U.S. Artillery (as a Major). He remained with the 3rd U.S. Artillery until his retirement as a full Colonel in 1891. "

        Chester A. Arthur annotated book: President, and apparent poet, adds a verse to conclude Whittier's poem, "Maud Muller"

      "Autograph Manuscript, accomplished in pencil on page 12 of an illustrated version of John G. Whittier's 1856 poem, Maud Muller (Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1867), 8vo, 12pages plus illustrations by W. J. Hennessey. Bound in tooled leather boards and gilt titled spine. With an additional pencil notation on the blank front flyleaf by Chester A. Arthur II, who identifies the added manuscript lines as in the hand of his father. Boards and spine heavily rubbed, spine cracked and blank marbled endpaper loose, light soiling to a few pages which bear a crease at the upper right corner. Arthur, deeply moved by Whitter's poem of a missed opportunity for true love, adds his own spin on the maiden and the judge: ""No, blame them both, & blame us all,Who give to our hearts, and unworthy thrall!The unhappy maiden's married life,The Judge's vow to his cold, proud wife,Tarnished the sweet hope buried for years,And quenched dear memories in tears,And the angel who rolleth the stone away,Will find but ashes, where once it lay!"" Chester Arthur's son and namesake, writing in pencil on the front flyleaf, identifies the poem as that of his father: ""The lines written in pencil on the last page are my father's - Chester A. Arthur. C.A.A. 2nd."" A most touching conclusion by Arthur to Whittier's verse. Perhaps Arthur shared a similar experience. Sadly, soon before his death in 1886, he ordered that most of his personal papers be burned. If there was evidence of a missed opportunity for romance, we will probably never know. "

        A Tennessean writes to a Mississippi law firm that he sold a Negro woman who ?was sound at the time we made the Sale? but now needs a lawyer because she died and as for the Negro man, ?we gave no guarantee that he was a carpenter, we only gave a guarantee for soundness??

      "Autograph Letter Signed ?R.J. Foster,? 2p, 8? x 10?, front & verso. Nashville, Tennessee, April 17, 1856. With original 3¢ George Washington embossed stamped envelope, 5.5? x 3.25?. Clear blue ?Nashville Tenn. Apr 18? postmark. Addressed by Foster to ?Mess Miller & Kilpatrick / Attorneys at Law / Pontotoc, Miss.? Docketed at left. Fine condition.Hugh R. Miller and William H. Kilpatrick became law partners in Pontotoc, Mississippi, in 1853. Miller had been a Mississippi State Representative (1841-1843) and Circuit Judge (1845-1853). In the Civil War, he commanded the Pontotoc Minute Men (Company G, 2nd Mississippi Infantry Regiment) from January 1861 until April 1862 and the 42nd Mississippi Infantry Regiment from May 1862 until July 3, 1863, when he was mortally wounded during the Battle of Gettysburg in Pickett?s Charge. Kilpatrick served as Captain, 9th Mississippi Infantry (?Corinth Rifles?) and, promoted to Major, commanded the 5th Battalion of the Army of Mobile in 1862.In part, ?In relation to the negro woman we sold Mr Lowry I fear I will not be enabled to have deposition taken and forwared [sic] to your court in time for your June term, from the fact that my Partner Mr J.W. Hitchings who purchased the woman is at this time in Texas and as the parties he purchased of is not known to me ... We had the woman in hand about four months before we sold her to Lowry and during that time, she never complained of being sick one moment, and I have no doubt but we will be enabled to prove the woman to be sound. If you know a Lawyer at Crawfordsville I wish you to get him to investigate the soundness of the woman from the time we sold her to Lowry up to the time of her death, for I am fully satisfied that she was sound at the time we made the Sale ... In relation to the negro man we only said to Lowry that he had worked at the carpentry trade, he had the man examined by a carpenter in this Town who said to him from what the man said him self he was of the opinion that he could do good work, but in our Bill of Sale to Lowry, we gave no guarantee that he was a carpenter we only gave a guarantee for soundness and tittle to the negroes...?"

        10 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Berlin, 1856-1858.. Zus. 44 S., 8° u. 4°.. Daß u.a. auch Giacomo Meyerbeer bei einem Soiree des Barons de Santa Quiteria anwesend war (1856) liegt vielleicht auch daran, daß Santa Quiteras Frau Natalie auch als Komponistin einiger Lieder (u.a. Vertonungen von Nikolaus Lenau, Heinrich Heine u. Georg Herwegh) hervorgetreten ist. Von Natalie liegen hier ebenfalls 11 eigenh. Briefe bei (Wien, Berlin u.a., 1856-1862; zus. 33 S., Kl.-8° u. 8°), weiters ein 4-seitiger Briefentwurf m. Unterschrift des Empfängers. - 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. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

      London, 1856. Graham, Thomas (1805-69). Portrait photograph from Photographic Portraits of Living Celebrities (London, 1856-60). 305 x 254 mm. Light browning at edges.Portrait of Scottish chemist Thomas Graham from Maull and Polyblank's Photographic Portraits of Living Celebrities (1856-60). Graham formulated Graham's law of gas diffusion, which states that the rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of the mass of its particles. He also discovered dialysis (the process of separating molecules in solution by the difference in their rates of diffusion through a semipermeable membrane), and founded the field of colloid chemistry.

        Election for West Camden. Speeches of Henry Molesworth Oxley and James Macarthur, esquires

      Sydney: Reading and Wellbank, n.d. but, 1856. Octavo, inscribed "from Mr Macarthur" on the title-page, a little toned, a few spots; very good in recent neat brown cloth. Rare pamphlet relating to the first parliament in New South Wales, printing the thoughts of James Macarthur relating to his election as the member for West Camden. Inscribed "from Mr. Macarthur" at the head of the title-page.James Macarthur was born at Elizabeth Farm in Parramatta, schooled in England and Europe, but returned to New South Wales in 1817 to manage the family estates. Astute and considered, he was responsible for many innovations including pursuing his interest in the cultivation of vines, and working to improve the family's merino flock. He worked hard as a politician, and in 1837 published his work on New South Wales, its Present State and Future Prospects. The present work is the most important printed document relating to his brief political career. In 1856 he was elected as one of the founding members of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly, representing Camden. Macarthur served briefly as colonial treasurer, but soon resigned his seat in order to be re-elected for West Camden. In 1859 he retired.This rare pamphlet prints Macarthur's address of June 1856, together with the comments of his primary supporter Henry Molesworth Oxley, the younger son of the explorer John Oxley. Henry Oxley would in turn be elected as member for Camden on Macarthur's retirement.Ferguson knew only his own copy and a second in the Mitchell Library.
