        Proverbial Philosophy

      London - T. Hatchard, 1856 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Tupper's popular pearls of wisdom, dating from the mid nineteenth century. Twenty-sixth Edition. Featuring an engravedtissue-guarded portrait frontispiece. With a bookseller's label for J. and T. Spencer, Leicester,to the front pastedown. Martin Farquhar Tupper (July 17 1810 November 1889) was an English writer and poet. In 1837 the first series of Proverbial Philosophy was published; along series of didactic moralisings composed in a lawyer's chambers in Old Square, Lincoln's Inn, during part of the previous year. A typical example is: 'Well-timed silence hath more eloquence than speech'. His work met at first with moderate success in Britain, while in the United States it was almost a total failure. It slowly picked up steam, however, and within thirty years it had passed through forty large editions in Britain by 1867, while nearly a million copies were sold in the United States. Condition: In a full morocco binding with gilt edges. Externally, generally smart, rubbed to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. A few spots to the first and last few pages but otherwise very clean throughout. Ink inscriptions to the first blank, dated 1856 and 1919. Overall: VERY GOOD..

      New York: Harper & Brothers, . 1856 - Two volumes. Original cloth. Spine ends carefully repaired on first volume. Head and toe of spine frayed on second volume. Corners refurbished. Contemporary ownership label and pencil signatures on front endpapers. Bookplate removed from second volume. Moderate to heavy foxing in both volumes, affecting plates and folding map. Old bookseller's blindstamp on titlepage of each volume. Overall good. This is the seventh and best edition of the most important work on a decisive event in Texas and southwestern history. The Texan Santa Fe expedition was conceived by Mirabeau B. Lamar in an attempt to open a trade route which would lure away some of the traffic hitherto utilizing the Santa Fe trade, and also to extend his greetings to residents of New Mexico, whom he wished to participate in Texas government as residents of territory claimed by Texas in an act of 1836. Due to poor navigation, faulty planning, and harassment by Indians, the expedition lost most of its momentum. Upon their arrival in New Mexico, the entire force was taken captive under orders of Gov. Manuel Armijo. The prisoners were forcibly marched to Mexico City, and the affair brought relations between Texas, the United States, and Mexico to a boiling point. Those who survived the march and imprisonment were released in April 1842, six and a half months after their capture. Kendall, editor of the New Orleans PICAYUNE, accompanied the expedition as an observer. With him was Thomas Falconer, who was acting in secret as an agent for the British government. Because of Falconer's British citizenship, he was among the first prisoners released. This extremely important seventh edition incorporates for the first time an appendix containing excerpts from Falconer's diary, as well as two additional chapters of text. For this reason, this edition is eminently more desirable than the first edition, and it is much more difficult to acquire. The map, although not a notably accurate one, shows various routes across West Texas. HOWES K75, "b". WAGNER-CAMP 110:10. CLARK III:188. FIELD 818. RADER 2157. RITTENHOUSE 347. SABIN 37360.

        Shasta, Shasta County, Cal.

      San Francisco: A. Roman & Brother 1856 - This fine lithograph view of Shasta in California, measuring 24.25” x 31.5” framed, is from "Kuchel & Dresel's California Views" which included "all the important cities and mining towns, with a few of Oregon and Washington, issued during 1855, 1856, 1857, and 1858. They were sometimes published by a local merchant, often the bookseller [as here]. Many of them were framed by a border of views of important buildings, ranches, and mines in and about the town portrayed." (Peters page 142). Kuchel was born in Zweibrucken in 1820, and when he arrived in America work initially for P.S. Duval in Philadelphia. He began collaborating with Dresel in 1853. Kuchel and Dresel capture this bird's-eye view of Shasta, in Shasta County, California only a few years after it was created as one of the original counties of California in 1850. In 1852 parts of the county's territory were given to Siskiyou County, and later to Tehama County in 1856. Named after Mount Shasta which in turn is from the English equivalent for the name of an Indian tribe that once lived in the area. Peters, "California on Stone", pages 143 and 145; see Streeter 2787.

        Case of Passmore Williamson. Report of the Proceedings on the Writ of Habeas Corpus, Issued by The Hon. John K. Kane, Judge of the District Court of the United States for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, in the case of The United States of America Ex Rel. John H. Wheeler vs. Passmore Williamson, Including The Several Opinions Delivered, and The Arguments of Counsel, Reported by Arthur Cannon, Esq., Phonographer

      Philadelphia: Uriah Hunt & Son. 1856. First. 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, 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. OCLC seems to locate a single copy of the book. .

        Lastrea cristata [Crested Wood Fern]

      Bradbury & Evans, London 1856 - 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. Colour nature-printed engraving. Very good condition.
