"A very valuable work with a wide circulation. In his arrangement of the various lives he follows the calendar of the Church. The splendid woodcut (19 x 15.5 cm) by Urs Graf (ca. 1485-1528?) in Switzerland shows Christ's Ascension, with the Apostles before him, attributes of the four Evangelists in the corners, and God at the head. He gives an extremely expressive rendering of the faces of Christ and the Apostles in the tradition of Albrecht Dürer.With a 1596 owner's inscription and ca. 1700 engraved armorial bookplate on the front paste-down and ca. 1800 library stamps on the title-page, all from the Waldaufstiftung in Hall (near Innsbruck in Tirol): "Waldaufficæ fundationis/A[nn]o 1596 Halae", "Fundationis Baldauficæ" and "Ritte v. Baldauf'sche Stifts-Bibliothek". Binding rather severely rubbed, but the rolls and lettering can still be made out. Some worming in the first and last few leaves; occasional browning and water stains. Fine Strasbourg print; Urs Graf's splendid woodcut shows the Ascension of the Christ.

        10 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 35 S., Kl.-8. u. 8. Damas war Militärkaplan während des Krim-Krieges im Jahre 1856 (u.a. bei der Belagerung von Sewastopol) und war danach im Orient (u.a. Syrien) tätig. Er verfasste zahlr. Schriften, darunter Souvenirs religieux et militaires de la Crimée (1857) En Orient.

Burnichon, Un jésuite, Amédée de Damas. - 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. -

        Arctic Explorations

      Philadelphia, Childs & Peterson,, 1856. The Second Grinnell Expedition in Search of Sir John Franklin, 1853, '54, '55. 2 volumes, octavo ( 220 × 140 mm). Original dark brown wave-grain cloth, gilt-lettered spine, decorative blind frames to boards, enclosing blind ship vignettes to front, brown coated endpapers. With engraved vignette titles, engraved portrait frontispieces of Kane and Grinnell from Brady daguerreotypes, 18 engraved plates with tissue guards, 3 maps, one of them folding, folding isothermal chart, and numerous wood engravings in the text. Boards lightly rubbed, spine of vol. 1 rolled, closed tear to folding map stub. An excellent copy, clean and fresh in the original cloth, with particularly rich impressions of the plates. First edition, first state, the folding map without "Kane Sea" labelling the expanse between Smith Strait and Kennedy Channel: the appellation was inserted only after an American historian of Arctic exploration, Colonel Peter Force, wrote to the publishers demonstrating that Kane's discovery of the strait had been suppressed (see Elder, Biography of Elisha Kent Kane, pp. 229-30); copies also noted in a variant binding with the ship vignettes in gilt. "In a brief life of thirty-six years, mostly in ill health, Elisha Kent participated in two Arctic expeditions and by the time of his death in 1857 was regarded as a true American hero and one of the nation's most popular authors … Little went right in the second expedition [but] there were many notable achievements … The discoveries of Kennedy Channel, the Kane Basin, a record north of 80° 10'N, and the sighting of the Humboldt Glacier were important firsts for Kane … The book became enormously popular (135,000 copies sold within three years), being marketed at trade shows and sold door to door, and often compared to the Bible for wide dissemination on America's bedside reading tables" (Books on Ice). This is an especially handsome copy of one of the great American polar books.

        19de-eeuws Amsterdam.

      19de-eeuws Amsterdam?Amsterdam 1856? ?Naar de natuur geteekend en op steen gegraveerd door Heinrich Dilcher (1824-1855), gedrukt en uitgegeven door Seyffardts Boekhandel te Amsterdam.? Gevouwen plattegrond in kartonnen omslag, 2de uitgave uit of na 1857. Afm. (kaartbeeld) 41 x 66 cm.We zien de stad vanaf een hoog fictief standpunt in Amsterdam Noord. Op dit vogelvlucht gezicht zijn de grotere gebouwen met enorm gevoel voor detaillering weergegeven. De individuele huizen staan er minder nauwkeurig op. De kaart toont onder andere de in 1854 gedempte Goudsbloemgracht en het hoofdgebouw van Artis, dat in 1855 gebouwd werd. Het nationaal monument ?De Eendracht?, beter bekend als ?Naatje van de Dam? en onthuld in augustus 1856, staat echter nog niet ingetekend.Onder deze 2de uitgave zijn zestien kolommen opgenomen met ?Voorname Gebouwen?. De kolommen worden gescheiden door naar boven wijzende pijlen. Als je de lijnen van de pijlen naar boven door zou trekken verdelen ze het kaartbeeld in stroken. De gebouwen die tegen de onderrand in de kolommen genoemd worden, staan ergens in de virtuele stroken daarboven. Sommige kolommen vermelden veel, andere mindere gebouwen. Kolom zestien bleef leeg. Het systeem is te zien als een voorloper van de later veel gebruikelijkere gridvlakken die normaal met A1 beginnen en die een corresponderend straatnamen-/gebouwenregister hebben.Dergelijke 19de-eeuws plattegronden werden in kleine oplages gedrukt. In dit geval een gebruiksvoorwerp op niet erg sterk papier bovendien. Inmiddels zeer zeldzaam geworden omdat bijna alle explaren verloren zijn gegaan.Literatuur: Hameleers ?Kaarten van Amsterdam?, nr. 207Prijs: 1.250,-.

Half green morocco and marbled boards, flat back with gilt rules and gilt lettering, speckled edges, bound by James H. Jackson with his binder's ticket on rear pastedown of each volume. Each volume contains the engraved bookplate of Andrew A. Miller, mild foxing to front and last, covers scuffed, edges lightly rubbed. Overall, a very good set. "John Halifax, Gentleman is unusual because it so thoroughly celebrates its central character and its society. Novelists who write with a social purpose in mind almost invariably do so by showing examples of the evils that need to be corrected. Craik, instead, provided a model to emulate, a vision of the world that should be. She made the book appeal to the reading public by reinforcing their own values, by making an ordinary man into a hero of epic proportions, and by using literary techniques that shape and guide the reader's emotional response." - Prof. Sally Mitchell, A Victorian Web Book.

        An album of ca. 84 folding leaves of drawings, many of which are signed and fully annotated by Okada, plus several folding & inserted drawings. 8vo (262 x 182 mm.), cont. wrappers, stitched

      [Japan]: ca. 1856-64. Okada (1823-64, who also used the names Tametaka Okada, Tamechika Reizei, Eikyo Kano, or Tamechika Sugawara), was an important figure in the Yamato-e tradition of artists, who preserved traditional subjects and styles of Japanese art. He "copied ancient paintings, sought aristocratic and imperial patrons and actively joined in the contemporary restorationist movements."-Grove Art online. Active in Kyoto, Okada specialized in "painted Buddhist subjects and figures. He first studied Kano style painting before switching to classic Yamato-e. He came under the influence of Ukita Ikkei. He was murdered by a wandering samurai in Tambaichi, Yamato."-Benezit. The manuscript title on the upper cover is "Kamidate zakki; onoborisan no kyomiyage kan jusan" [trans.: "Collection of Notes and Illustrations brought back from Kyoto by a Provincial. Thirteenth Volume" (our translation does not nearly do justice to the wit of this inscription)]. The sketchbook was clearly assembled by Okada, and contains some later additions by his disciples. On the second leaf, Okada has written an index to the album: hairstyles; costumes of the emperor; "kariginu" costumes; costumes and accessories of the aristocrats including brocades and patterns for fabrics; letters and notes; strange occurrences in the Bunkyu era; and extensive personal observations. The first set of illustrations depicts a series of images from the famous "Shinran emaki" and other scrolls and bear Okada's extensive notes stating he copied these as practice. Many types of highly formalized hairstyles are depicted. Some of the images are described as copies of national treasures stored in a temple (whose name we are unable to determine). The next section on the emperor's wardrobe contains Okada's detailed notes stating that he studied certain books to learn about the royal costumes. This set of fine drawings are heightened in orange, red, and grey wash. He describes dyeing techniques and the range of colors. The next section depicts "kariginu" costumes, the daily wear of the nobility. A handsome kicho, a portable multi-panelled silk partition used in aristocratic households in the Heian period, is shown. Following this are sections on brocade patterns (coming from Okada's own collection) and other textile patterns (highly annotated by Okada with his information on the uses of fabrics); and attire for special events. The next section is devoted to the "Tenchugumi Incident" of 1863, a military uprising of conservatives who refused to accept the changes confronting Japan. Three beheaded activists are depicted. This is followed by a series of personal observations. Next are colored patterns for costumes for the "Inuoumono" festival along with men on horseback and details of footgear, swords, etc.; further costumes and patterns; copies of portions of the "Ban dainagon emaki," another national treasure scroll; costumes of the Tale of Genji; copies of portions of the "Kitano tenjin engi emaki," depicting samurai costumes; copies of fine calligraphy of poetry and classic texts along with his illustrations; accounts of royal events with details of who was standing next to whom and wearing what. At the end, there is a large (980 x 550 mm.) folding drawing in brush and wash depicting the royal court, signed by Okada. Also inserted or bound-in are several drawings by students. ❧ See the on-line Mary Griggs Burke Collection website where a signed scroll by Okada is described and illustrated (now at the Minneapolis Institute of Art).

        New Map of the State of Texas Compiled from J. De Cordova's large Map.

      New York. J. H. Colton & Co. Copyright 1855. [ 1856]. Hand-colored map on sheet size 18 1/2 x 29 inches with central vertical fold. Light toning to margins, overall very good condition. Accompanying the map is a full page text 18 1/2 x 31 inches titled "The State of Texas."There are three inset maps: "Plan of the Northern Part of Texas"; "Plan of Galveston Bay"; "Plan of Sabine Lake." An uncommon edition of this impressive map of Texas. The map is dated along bottom edge below Sabine Lake inset; the last two numerals are not fully formed but appear to establish an 1855 date; this issue was published in Colton's Atlas of the World in 1857. The map is distinguished from later editions by two text blocks, one straddling the fold at the bottom of map titled "Explanations," with images and varying fonts identifying "Railroads," "Common Roads," "Cities," "County Towns," etc. The other appears at the top of the map to the eastern boundary of New Mexico. It reads: "Note: From the head waters of the Red Brazos and Colorado Rivers to the Rio Pecos is a desolate and sterile plain from 100 to 200 miles in width, elevated about 4500 feet above the Gulf of Mexico, without water or timber and with a scanty vegetation." The land speculator Jacob De Cordova was hired by the Texas General Land Office to compile a map for promotional purposes; it was first published in 1849, with subsequent editions revised to show new counties, public lands, settlements, etc. De Cordova's map was the basis for this early Colton map.

        Sketch of the Laws relating to Slavery in the Several States.of the United States of America.

      Henry Longstreth,, Philadelphia: 1856 - 8vo, gilt embossed red cloth, decorated and lettered in gilt, , all edges gilt, 300 pp. Inscription on title page, some chips and wear to spine ends and corners, a little fading, slight separation of early signatures, but still firm; otherwise very good. This copy is inscribed by the author's daughter Susan to L.M. Benson, September 20, 1878, which was three years after the death of her father. Originally published in 1827, Stoud's work was the first comprehensive work on American slave laws. Some 20 years later he updated the book, adding over 100 pages. For the most part, Stroud's work demonstrates the absence of any rights of African Americans in 12 Southern states. Additionally, there is an important section on fugitive slave laws.

      Lith. Britton & Rey, [1856], [San Francisco]: - Two leaves, unnumbered, on a single folio sheet folded to 8-3/8" x 10- 5/8". One page has the two illustrations, which are in excellent condition. The final leaf prints the Committee's Constitution and Address, which has scuffing to portions of some letters. Good+. The front of this rare letter sheet displays two engraved images, lithographed from daguerreotypes by the influential and pioneering San Francisco photographer, Robert Vance. The upper image, "Rooms of the Committee.," depicts the Committee's headquarters, an imposing two-story building defended by armed guards and cannons. Filled gunny sacks and a cannon guard the entrance; ship masts are in the background. The lower image, "Mass Meeting.," shows the crowded assembly. Speakers address the crowd from the balcony of a building festooned with two large American flags. The conjugate leaf prints, in three columns, the Constitution and Address of the Vigilance Committee. They explain the breakdown of law and order, and the Committee's mission "for maintenance of the peace and good order of society - the prevention and punishment of crime - the preservation of our lives and property, and to insure that our ballot- boxes shall hereafter express the actual and unforged will of the majority of our citizens."OCLC 43694738 [1- Lib.

        La Marine au XIXe. siècle par Lebreton... dessinateur du voyage autour du monde du C. Amiral Dumont-Durville.

      Paris: Théodore Lefèvre, circa 1856. Oblong album measuring 245 x 335 mm., title-page and twelve tinted plates, fine in original decorated papered boards. Unusually attractive mid-nineteenth century French lithographic album with five skilfully executed scenes of naval engagements during the Crimean War. As the title boasts, Louis Lebreton served as illustrator of the second voyage of Dumont d'Urville to the Pacific and southern ocean regions during 1837-1840, his depictions of the native peoples of the Marquesas and other outlying islands are well regarded. The album comprises thirteen lithographic plates, including the romantic pictorial title-page depicting mariners wrecked upon the rocks. Five scenes depict the French and British at sea during Crimean War engagements of 1854; namely Friedland in consort with a British warship entering the Bosphorus, the arrival of the Anglo-French fleet at Kalamita, bombarding the defences of Sevastopol, and the British gunboat Agamemnon tackling a gale in Sevastopol harbour. The last Crimean lithograph is an especially dramatic rendition of the port of Balaclava viewed from the clifftops with archaic ruins in the foreground.Other marine scenes of interest include Galilée, a fully rigged naval paddle-steamer, Brasilian clipper l'Impératrice rounding the Cape, an American barque at La Havre and the enormous gunboat Napoleon half rigged at resting at anchor. Rear cover moderately rubbed, touch of foxing affects the preliminaries.

        Original manuscript translation of 'The Little Mermaid'. Translated from the German by Miss H.C. Sterling with illustrations by A. Maynard.

      Boston? 1856. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front endpaper: 'To my mother from H.C.S.'. A significant manuscript as it is possibly the first American translation of ˜The Little Mermaid'. Hans Christian Andersen is the most translated author of all time so the discovery of this early American translation is exciting. The fourteen illustrated leaves in ˜The Little Mermaid' are by a skilled unrecorded female artist, stated as 'A. Maynard' on the title-page. The fine steel-point drawings are executed with balance and competence in a neoclassical style. Original illustrated manuscript dated 1856, 36 pages, frontispiece and decorated title-page with 12 original illustrated leaves, oblong quarto, bound in beautiful nineteenth-century gilt tooled limp green morocco, some darkening at the gutter edge, in exceptionally fine condition.

        3 autograph letters signed. Padua and Venice, 1856 to 1861.

      1856. 4to and large 8vo. Altogether 3½ pp. on 6 ff. To an unnamed friend in Vienna. - 1 (Pavia, 27. s.m. 1856) ancora vescovo di Pavia in previsione di un viaggio nella capitale austriaca: "Carissimo, il mio cuore ti ringrazia delle replicate premure. Giacché sei tanto buono da volerti interessare anche per trovarmi l'abitazione per il caso che io venga chiamato a codesta capitale, ti pregherò a trovarmi se è possibile alloggio presso qualche casa religiosa. Ad ogni modo lascio la cura di ciò al tuo buon cuore. Devo però dirti schiettamente, che i vescovi qui e per amore e per forza son professori di esimia povertà: io poi che ho fatta offerta di una somma vistosa per la continuazione dei lavori di queste cattedrale e che in due anni devo pagare una somma non vistosa! Ma da esprimersi con una parola dell'istessa desinenza e colla premessa di tutti insieme i densi del corpo se fossero ventiquattro e che di più ho una delle migliori possessioni di questa mensa che si lascia mangiar mezza dal Po per mangiar me con l'altra metà, potrei venire a Vienna anche a piedi senza il minimo tradimento della verità! Ad ogni modo vi verrei volentieri anche con un piede solo quando vi fossi chiamato per il Concordato, tanto ne son contento. Ti prego di dire al Sig. Consigliere Noy che mi farò un dovere di esprimergli i miei ringraziamenti quando verrò come spero a fargli una visita. Ancor io desidero molto di rivederti. Ti prego de' miei rispetti alla tua Signora moglie e con piacere mi dico tuo affezionatissimo amico, + Angelo vescovo". - 2 (Pavia, 28 febbraio 1858) in un momento in cui, indicato a rivestire la carica di patriarca di Venezia, sembra agitato da dubbi in proposito: "Carissimo amico, in questi giorni nei quali il mio cuore è assai commosso, mi è caro avere anche lontano un amico al quale possa aprirlo con confidenza questo mio cuore benedetto. Io mi trovo in quello stato che ti puoi immaginare. Temo, spero vorrei andando a Venezia farvi del bene, ... ma se quella invece fosse una sede dove Dio riservasse un po' d'onore mondano, ma sterilità d'opere buone ad un povero vescovo, che fu inerte nell'operar il bene dove il campo era più opportuno ... ! Io ho rimessa la decisine di quello che devo fare al Santo Padre. Questo però non impedisce che il mio cuore senta con viva riconoscenza tutto l'amore e la fedeltà che io devo al mio Sovrano anche per questo nuovo tratto della sua bontà verso di me. Mi raccomando alla carità anche delle tue preghiere e di quella della tua degna Signora Moglie, alla quale presenterai i miei rispetti. Credimi quale di cuore mi dico tuo affezionatissimo, + Angelo vescovo. Le notizie che ho finora del giovine Claudio Chiesa sono buone. Assumerò altre informazioni. Lo ho veduto solamente quando è venuto a [presentarmi] la tua lettera". - 3 (Venezia 4 aprile 1861) in vista di un viaggio a Vienna prega l'amico di cercargli alloggio presso un istituto religioso: "Carissimo, siccome sarà bene che anch'io venga a Vienna per la prossima riunione del Consiglio dell'Impero, quantunque e per la mancanza della cognizione della lingua tedesca e per la mancanza di qualunque altra cognizione io veda benissimo che vi potrò far ben poco di bene. Così ti prego di andare a parlare al Superiore dei P.B. Redentoristi a Ligoriani per vedere se vorrebbero aver la bontà di darmi alloggio. Ti prego di dimandare se avrebbero posto anche per qualche altro vescovo. Spero che mi risponderai presto. Rispetti alla tua Signora. Tuo affezionatissimo amico + Angelo patriarca".
