        Popular History of the Palms and their Allies

      Lovell Reeve, London 1856 - A very good to near fine copy of the rarest title in Lovell Reeve's Popular History series. Seemann was a botanist who made his name when he was appointed naturalist (on the recommendation of W J Hooker) to HMS Herald for the Kellett voyage of exploration to the American West Coast and Pacific. The series, aimed primarily at younger readers as an informed introduction to natural history, varies greatly in the quality of its authors as the publishers set strict budget limits on publication costs. In recent quarter leather binding with raised bands, gilt compartments, and gilt titles to spine and marbled boards. New endpapers. With 20 high quality colour printed plates. 17 x 13.5 cms. There is browning to page edges and the odd light mark, but otherwise this is a very good internally. A lovely book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE ENGLISH STRUWWELPETER or Pretty Stories and Funny Picturers for Little Children

      Leipsig, Friedrich Volckmar, and London at the Agency of the German Literary Society, circa 1856.. Leipsig, Friedrich Volckmar, and London at the Agency of the German Literary Society, circa 1856.. NINTH ENGLISH EDITION circa 1856 after the 19th German edition, 245 x 200 mm, 9¾ x 7¾ inches, original buff (or cream?) card covers, wide decorative border on both covers, vignette on lower cover of 2 old people and 3 children, lettered on upper cover only. 24 pages of hand coloured illustrations in the design of the original edition: Peter's hair hangs down over his face (but no chamber pot). Recased long ago with 19th century dark roan reback, first 4 pages mounted on thin linen. Corners worn with 20 mm (¾ ") chips to surface paper, boards grubby along edges, few small water marks to boards, inner paper hinges cracked, endpapers spotted, large closed tear to front endpaper repaired with archival tape. Small piece cut from top margin of first page, inscription below it dated April 1856, minute wormhole to top corner of first 2 pages, margins slightly fingermarked throughout, occasional light margin soiling. A previous owner or his/her parent has tried to wash the blood which drips from Conrad's mutilated hand, resulting in a bit of a smear across the top of the page, smudging the tailor's trousers also. Still a decent bright copy of a very scarce early English edition. After about 1859 the illustrations were changed to show Struwwelpeter with a mop of wavy hair, as found in the reprints of today, none of it over his face. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

Am meisten gilt dies von den beiden ersten Büchern, welche die ersten fünf Jahrhunderte des römischen Staats umfassen... In diese Auflage ist eine Reihe neu angestellter Untersuchungen, zum Beispiel über die staatsrechtliche Stellung der Unterthanen Roms, über die Entwickelung der dichtenden und bildenden Künste, ihren Ergebnissen nach aufgenommen worden. Ueberdies wurden eine Menge kleinerer Lücken ausgefüllt, die Darstellung durchgängig schärfer und reichlicher gefasst... Es sind ferner im dritten Buche die inneren Verhältnisse der römischen Gemeinde während der karthagischen Kriege nicht, wie in der ersten Ausgabe, skizzenhaft, sondern mit der ... gebotenen Ausführlichkeit behandelt worden" (Mommsen im Vorwort zu dieser Aufl.).

        President-elect Buchanan advises ìto let New York politicks alone for the present as I have resolved to do. It is a perfect chaos ÿ I like Wood very much & always have liked him. He is a Napoleon of a fellow.î Fellow Democrat Fernando Wood was Mayor of New York City

      Lancaster, Pennsylvania: , December 16, 1856 Autograph Letter Signed ìJames Buchananî as President-elect, 2p, 6.5î x 8î, front & verso. On gilt-edged laid paper. The recipientís name has been erased from page two with slight thinning of paper on first page. Marked ìPrivateî by Buchanan. Wheatland, December 16, 1856. Fine condition. Wheatland was James Buchananís home in Lancaster County, outside of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In the November 4, 1856, presidential election, Democrat Buchanan had handedly defeated the Republican partyís first presidential candidate, John C. Frÿmont, and the American (Know-Nothing) party nominee, former President Millard Fillmore. In full, ìI have recd yours of the 13th at the moment of leaving for Philadelphia. I have only time to advise you to let New York politicks [sic] alone for the present as I have resolved to do. It is a perfect chaos, - a whirpool [sic] of contending elements, - which nobody either in or out of the State understand at the present moment. Donít interfere in them now, if you desire to have influence on them hereafter. People come to me almost every day from New York. I like Wood very much & always have liked him. He is a Napoleon of a fellow. No man has ever been more abused than him; but he is abundantly able to take care of himself. I speak of the present momentwillshall not say that I shall will not interfere. He is a master spirit. Ever yr friend in haste.î The ìNew York Daily Timesî had editorialized on December 11, 1856, in part, ìThe necessity of a greater concentration of power in the City Government, is becoming generally recognized and acknowledged. The only difficulty in agreeing upon some mode of bringing this about grows out of the hostility or distrust which exists in many quarters with regard to Mayor Woodÿî Also on November 4, 1856, New York Democrat Fernando Wood had been reelected Mayor of New York City. Jerome Mushkat writes in ìFernando Wood: A Political Biographyî (Kent, Ohio: Kent State University Press, 1990), ìAs soon as it became apparent that he had won, Wood brashly wrote Buchanan, ëMy own election I know will be gratifying to you Ã? Fortunately, my own relations with Mr. B [ìNew York Heraldî owner, publisher, and editor James Gordon Bennett who had supported Buchananís election] & his really kind feelings towards you personally places matters in good shape.í Yet according to Wood, a complication existed. Bennett was worried that Woodís enemies might ëobtain your confidence & get control [sic] of the patronage of this city.í But Wood insidiously ended that he could handle Bennett. ëI have assured him that there can be no probability of this,í since ëyou would not selectí those ëwho have taken action at the last election with the small minority of the party which opposed me.í Buchanan was not a political innocent and held Wood at armís length until he took his own soundings. ëIn regard to the N.Y. appointments I can say nothing, but that I shall hear all sides & hope for the best,í he repliedÃ?î

Addressed by Foster to ìMess Miller & Kilpatrick / Attorneys at Law / Pontotoc, Miss.î 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 Pickettís Charge. Kilpatrick served as Captain, 9th Mississippi Infantry (ìCorinth Riflesî) and, promoted to Major, commanded the 5th Battalion of the Army of Mobile in 1862. In part, ìIn 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 ÿ 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 ÿ 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 negroesÿî

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Bettine").

      [Frankfurt a. M.], o. D.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An ihre Schwester Lulu Desbordes (Rozier des Bordes) mit der Bitte, den in Frankfurt a. M. weilenden, mit ihrem Sohn Siegmund befreundeten Schriftsteller Theophile Gautier ("Gauthier") zu einer Reise nach Berlin zu bewegen: "Da Siegmund hört daß sein guter Freund Gauthier in Frankfurt ist der ihm versprochen hat, nach Berlin zu kommen, daß er jetzt aber dies le[t]ztere Projekt aufgegeben, so läßt er Dich bitten, durch Deine Überredungskunst ihn dahin zu bewegen, seinem Versprechen nachzukommen, er bittet ihn ein Zimmer in unserer Wohnung anzunehmen [...] Alles ist hier wohl, wir hatten einen Augenblick die brillante Idee Du würdest unsern Wünschen entgegen kommen, nehmlich hierher; Berlin ist ein Katzensprung von Frankfurt; indessen kann man mit gutem Gewissen den Aufenthalt von Berlin wen nicht wissenschaftliches Interesse anregt, nicht empfehlen, nur daß die Vier Schwestern [d. s. Gunda von Savigny, Bettina, Lulu und Meline von Guaita] beisammen wären. Meline besucht mich recht oft und recht gern wie sie sagt, obschon ich sehr wenig Mittel habe ihr Unterhaltung zu gewähren, auch Guaita ist sehr freundlich gegen mich [...] Die Zeiten vergehen und ehe wir dran denken, wird der Reisewagen für die gute Meline vorfahren. Dann wird meine Dichte Einsamkeit nicht mehr unterbrochen werden, denn ich hab mich so zimlich gegen allen menschlichen Umgang verschanzt und komme nicht aus dem Hause, jedoch vergeht mir die Zeit sehr schnell, ob es mir auch ein Räthsel ist mit was ich sie verbringe; ich könnte wohl sagen mit nichts; die Zeit muß sein wie ein Fluß wenn er Berg ab strömt so ist er reißend [...]". - Theophile Gautiers gleichnamiger Sohn ist der Verfasser einer 1856 unter dem Titel "Contes bizarres par Achim d'Arnim" erschienenen, von dem Vater eingeleiteten Übersetzung von drei Erzählungen Arnims. - Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt und mit einem kleinen Ausriß auf Bl. 2 (keine Textberührung); etwas knittrig und mit einem kleinen Einriß in der Bugfalte.
