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

      New-York:: Published by the New York Republican Committee,. 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. The Convention urges adherents to send delegates to Philadelphia in June, "to nominate candidates for the Presidency and Vice-Presidency of the United States." This New York printing is scarce; a more common printing of the Proceedings issued from Washington in the same year. Sabin 70029. OCLC 41428551 [5] [as of November 2014].

        The Life and Correspondence of Major-General Sir John Malcolm;

      London: Smith, Elder, and Co.,, 1856. from unpublished letters and journals. 2 volumes, octavo (213 x 130 mm). Contemporary half calf, decorative blind-tooled spines, brown cloth sides, red edges, marbled endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Malcolm by Armytage after Sir George Hayter. Twyford House bookplates and ownership inscription on title pages (dated 1858) of Conway Mordaunt Shipley (1824-1888), a naval officer and accomplished artist who visited India, China, the Philippines, and the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait. A few scrapes to bindings, frontispiece foxed. A very good copy. First edition. Sir John William Kaye (1814-1876) had himself served in the Bengal Artillery before joining the civil service of the East India Company; he wrote extensively on India, his best known work being the valuable The History of the Sepoy War in India, 1857-8 (3 volumes, 1864-76). This remains the primary source of information on Sir John Malcolm (1769-1833); "What distinguished Malcolm throughout most of his career was an ability to work with people and to inspire trust. Ambition, sensitivity, and self-confidence, sometimes excessive, accounted for many diplomatic successes. Influence in moulding policies undergirding imperial structures in India cast him as one the most able officers ever to have served the East India Company and the rising Indian empire. In the words of Malcolm Yapp, 'he was the ideologue par excellence of British India ? His insight, his imagination, his willingness to think outside accepted patterns, and, above all, his capacity to bring in a range of considerations far beyond that of which others were capable, all mark him out as a man of real intellectual genius' (Yapp, Strategies of British India: Britain, Iran and Afghanistan, 1798?1850, 1980, p. 53)" (ODNB).

        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: € 2.350,-.

        The Red River settlement: its rise, progress, and present state. With some account of the native races and its general history, to the present day

      Smith, Elder, London 1856 - First edition, 8vo, pp. xvi, 416; lithograph frontispiece; 20th century half polished tan calf over marbled boards, red morocco labels on spine; very good copy.Field 1327: "After many years of toil and adventure among the fierce tribes of the northern plains of Oregon and Washington territory, the author sought repose among his associates in the Red River Colony. The successive disasters of massacre, famine, and inundation, drove him from this forelorn asylum, to writing books descriptive of the wild people and wild life he had seen. All of these works possess the unfailing interest, which attach to the details of an intelligent observer and a faithful narrator. His pictures are of savage life and manners, as seen by the adventurous voyagers and fur-traders of the Hudson's Bay Company." Sabin 73328; Graff 3579; Staton & Tremaine 3304.

        Master’s Journal of Voyages made in the Clipper Ship Florence, 1857-1858 Captain Phillip Dumaresq

      6/25/16. 4to. 183 pages of manuscript entries. The "Florence" was fresh off the ways when this journal was written, having been launched in east Boston in 1856. Her early years represent a conjunction of some of the great names in American maritime history. She was built by the famed Samuel Hall for John Murray Forbes and Robert Bennett Forbes, the legendary brothers who’d made their millions in the China trade. Her master, Philip Dumaresq, was a personal friend of the Forbeses; he’d become famous as a captain of the Romance of the Seas and other outstanding clippers, and had worked for the brothers in the opium trade. He was nearly at the end of his career, but the unexpected deaths of his wife and daughter caused him to invest with the Forbes brothers in the "Florence" in hopes of diverting himself from grief. He supervised her building and rigging, and then took command of her. This log begins with the return portion of her first voyage - from Shanghai to New York in 1856-7. It continues with voyages from New York to Hong Kong in 1857, Hong Kong to Shanghai, 1857, and Shanghai to New York, 1858. It is written in Dumaresq’s hand, and it opens with his careful notes on ballasting and loading his new ship, and on port events in Shanghai. He primarily records in detail his sail handling and navigation. Fairburn has this to say about Dumaresq and his "Florence": “Dumaresq was a courageous driver with an uncanny sense in regard to putting on and taking in canvas. Other skippers... marvelled at ‘the foolhardy way Dumaresq piled on canvas...’ but there was nothing foolhardy about Dumaresq... An examination of the logs of the Florence... shows that he drove his medium-full Florence at the speed of the sharp ended extreme clippers... Dumaresq said, ‘Why not? I have a real ship with something to her under me, and everything above deck is right and I know it will stand.’” - Fairburn p. 3864. A truly wonderful piece of Americana. Clean and legible in securely bound journal housed in chemise and handsome half morocco slipcase with gold lettering.

        Observations addressed, at the last anniversary, to the president and fellows of the Royal Society . . .

      London: John Murray, 1856. Babbage, Charles (1791-1871). Observations addressed, at the last anniversary, to the president and fel- lows of the Royal Society, after the delivery of the med- als. 10, [2]pp. London: John Murray, 1856. 213 x 127 mm. Disbound.Tiny stab-holes in left margin, small chip in last leaf but very good. Ownership stamp of Dr. A. Nardecchia on title. First Edition. In 1853 the Swedish engineers Georg and Edvard Scheutz constructed their first successful working Difference Engine, a calculating and printing machine based on Babbage’s designs and research. Babbage applauded the Scheutzes’ efforts and did his best to publicize their machine, as he did in this address to the Royal Society in which he gave a brief summary of the Scheutz machine’s construction, noted that it had won a gold medal at the Paris Exposition, and chided the Royal Society for failing to honor the Scheutzes in similar fashion. "Sweden has thus secured for herself the glory of having been the first nation practically to produce a machine for Calculating Mathematical Tables by Differences, and Printing the Results. Wealthier and more powerful nations will regret that the coun- try of Berzelius should thus have anticipated them, in giving effect to an invention which requires for its perfection the tools of nations more highly advanced in mechanical science. But there is still left to them the honor of acknowledging the services of a foreigner, from which the richest and most commercial countries will derive the greatest advantage" (p. 8).Rare on the market.

        English Cavalry in the Army of the East. 1854 & 1855.

      London: G. Routledge & Co., , 1856. Divisional Orders & Correspondence whilst under the Command of Lieut.-General the Earl of Lucan, K.C.B. Small octavo. Original red wave-grain embossed cloth, title gilt to front board and spine, decorative panelling to both boards, cream surface-paper endpapers. A little rubbed, some fraying on the joints, head and tail of the spine, hinges a little cracked and repaired, front endpapers slightly stained and with a small chip from the fore-edge of the free endpaper, 1920s gift inscription to the pastedown, light toning to the text, a very good copy. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed on the title page "Colonel Duncombe, 1st Life Guards, from the Author July 29 1882". The recipient was Walter Henry Octavius Duncombe, late Colonel Commandant of the 1st Life Guards. It was Lucan who passed Raglan's order to Cardigan and thus initiated the debacle of the Charge of the Light Brigade. "Immediately after the action, Raglan blamed Cardigan, who replied that he had received a direct order from a senior officer (Lucan). That evening, Raglan accused Lucan of losing the light brigade. Lucan protested that he was only following orders, but Raglan told him that, as a lieutenant-general, he should have exercised his discretion. Next day, to help him prepare his dispatch for the government, Raglan asked Lucan for a copy of the order, as he had not retained one, and this began a series of different versions which circulated in years to come ? Back in England, Lucan strove to clear his name. Twice demands for a court martial were refused on the grounds that his recall rested on his relations with his superior officer not professional misconduct. He took his case to the floor of the House of Lords on 19 March 1855, without noticeable success ? Further to support his overall case, in 1856 he published his divisional orders and correspondence as English Cavalry in the Army of the East. Meanwhile, the mutual antagonism between him and Cardigan continued to fester. Both wrote letters to The Times in April 1855 about the other's actions over the heavy brigade charge, and Lucan was widely thought to have sponsored George Ryan's critical pamphlet in that year, Was Lord Cardigan a hero at Balaclava?" (ODNB). The book includes Lord Lucan's correspondence with General Airey, Lord Raglan, the War Office and others after his recall, and also the two letters published in The Times. The preface explains: "These Divisional Orders and this Correspondence were intended to form an Appendix to a Narrative of the Services of the English Cavalry in the Crimea. Circumstances have made it desirable that their publication should not be further deferred".

        CHAPMAN'S SECTIONAL MAP OF MINNESOTA

      Milwaukee: Dyer & Pasmore, 1856. Large colored folding map, 29 3/4 x 23 1/2 inches. Neatly ex-lib., with small, unobtrusive stamp on verso of map, and old shelf label on spine. Overall a very good copy, with a single straight closed tear without loss, laid into original 16mo. green cloth boards, stamped in blind and gilt. A slightly later version of this important Minnesota map, drawn by Silas Chapman. The present incarnation, published by Dyer & Pasmore, differs from an earlier version published by Chapman himself, also in 1856. The present copy reflects the boom in Minnesota's population and economy brought on by the lucrative logging trade. The newest western and northern counties are named and drawn, and the logging region along the north shore of Lake Superior is shown in greater detail than in an earlier state of the map. This version not in Rumsey nor in Phillips' MAPS. Rare. CHECKLIST OF PRINTED MAPS OF THE MIDDLE WEST TO 1900 (MINNESOTA), p.124.
