An einen Kollegen: "[...] gleich nach Empfang Ihres Briefes habe ich an [Rudolf] Clausius wegen der Stelle am Züricher Polytechnicum geschrieben; er hat mir jetzt geantwortet und mir gesagt, daß er Sie dem Präsidenten des schweizerischen Schulrathes empfohlen habe und Sie mit Freuden als College begrüßen würde. Er theilt mir aber auch mit, was ich Ihnen nicht verhehlen will, daß er nicht wisse, ob Sie Aussicht auf Erfolg haben; es wäre möglich, daß der Vorzug dem Dr. [Karl Heinrich] Durege gegeben würde, der seit einer Reihe von Jahren Privatdocent am Polytechnicum wäre und sich um dasselbe wesentliche Verdienste erworben hätte [...]" - Rudolf Clausius (1857-1867) war 1857-67 Professor an der Universität Zürich; Karl Heinrich Durege (1821-1893) war 1858-64 Privatdozent für Mathematik, ab 1862 Titularprofessor.

Washington, D. C: A. O. P. Nicholson / Cornelius Wendell, 1857. The cover is separate from the book, it is not attached. It is very aged, you can see the condition very well in photos. Taking offers!!! - Washington, D. C.: A. O. P. Nicholson / Cornelius Wendell. 1857, 1859. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. William H. Emory was appointed commissioner of the United States and Mexico Boundary Survey following John Russell Bartlett, who was MIA from the survey upon Emory's arrival to assume his appointment. Emory was left to scrap together an effective survey party and obtain an accurate survey of the border after previous errors had ceded the Mesilla Valley, important in constructing a trans-continental railroad, to Mexico. The Gadsden Purchase had corrected this, but also added new territory to be surveyed. In addition to helping to clear up the boundary controversy, Emory's accounts were important in noting that the deserts of the southwest were not an agrarian paradise, and his team assembled a wealth of natural history and anthropological observations. This report is also notable for the illustrations, with many plates of scenery, plants, animals, and in particular color plates of the native inhabitants and birds. Two volumes bound in three, half Morocco on marbled paper with bright gilt text on spine, custom slipcase. First volume from the Senate report, second from the House. Volume I contains the personal narratives, correspondence, meteorology, geology, ethnology, and paleontology. First part of Volume II is botany; second zoology.

Schneider, Sascha, Maler und Bildhauer (1870-1927).
An den Maler Max Klinger (1857-1920). Klinger hatte bei der Mäzenin Marie Meyer in Freiburg ein Stipendium für Sascha Schneider erwirkt. An diese richtet sich Klingers Nachschrift: "Gestern wurde in meiner abwesenheit ein brief hier ausgetragen, welcher Ihren werten namen zum absender hatte; zugleich soll die adresse für den eingeschriebenen Brief nicht genügt haben. Ich vermute nun, daß das schreiben an Sie, geehrter herr, zurückgehen wird, wenn nicht schon gegangen ist. Würden Sie nun wohl die freundlichkeit haben und Sich nochmal bemühen. Meine genaue adresse ist: Alex. Schneider, Gerokstr. 9. part. p: a.: Bildhauer Möller. Was das stechen anlangt, so sehen Sie mich nicht mehr so verzweifelt als ich bei Ihnen war, wenigstens habe ich die überzeugung gewonnen, daß ich bei genügender frist und wohlangebrachtem fleiße mir diese technik wohl noch aneignen werde. Ich werde nächstens so frei sein und Ihnen einige proben der ersten versuche einem Briefe beizulegen. In der hoffnung daß Sie Sich wohl fühlen, was bei dieser jahreszeit durchaus nicht phrase ist und den besten empfehlungen an Ihre werten angehörigen, denen ich für die reizende aufnahme noch verbindlichsten dank sage [...]" - Nachschrift von Max Klinger auf Seite 4: "Verehrte Frau Doktor! Ich hoffte Ihnen schon vorgestern Antwort wegen Schneider sagen zu können. Leider erhielt ich eine falsche Adresse - der Brief Schneiders besagt den Rest.

Cornelius Wendell, Printer, Washington, 1857. First edition. Octavo. 239pp. Printed buff wrappers. Small tears and a little chipping at the bottom of the front joint, but a handsome and sound, else near fine copy. Scott was a slave, who with his wife, lived in the free state of Illinois and returned to the slave state of Missouri with his owners. Scott sued for his freedom and initially won, but that decision was overturned 7-2 in what is considered one of the worst decisions in Supreme Court history. The ensuing controversy further ignited the debate over slavery and directly influenced the nathion's path towards the Civil War. Rebound copies occasionally appear, wrappered copies are much less common. An extremely important American document. *Howes* S-218; *Grolier American* #66; *Sabin* 33240.

Return to an Address of the Honourable The House of Commons, dated 24 February 1857; -for, A Copy of the Royal Warrant dated the 29th day of January 1856, laying down the Regulations under which the Decoration of the Victoria Cross is to be Conferred. War Office, February 1857. F. Peel. (Captain Scobell.) Ordered, by The House of Commons, to be Printed, 13 March 1857. Parliamentary Paper 108. Caption title, 3 pages + docket. Neatly extracted from a bound volume and expertly mended. Contemporary manuscript numbers written at the corner of each leaf. In the wake of the carnage caused by the Crimean War with Russia (1853-1856), Queen Victoria called for a new military medal to be awarded to officers or men who had served in the presence of the enemy and performed some signal act of valour or devotion to Great Britain. With a view to place all persons on a perfectly equal footing in relation to eligibility for the decoration, neither rank, nor long service, nor wounds, nor any other circumstance or condition whatsoever, save the merit of conspicuous bravery would be considered in establishing a sufficient claim to the honour. The Victoria Cross was to be the highest award of the United Kingdom honours system. Queen Victoria, under the guidance of Prince Albert, suggested that the award be called the Victoria Cross, and consist of a Maltese Cross of bronze with the Royal crest at its centre and the inscription For Valour beneath. The Victoria Cross was established by Royal Warrant on 29 January 1856, and outlined fifteen rules and ordinances b … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Southern Women's Education] Lizzie M. Solomons
South Carolina, 1857. Manuscript friendship book compiled during the academic year 1856-1857 at Orangeburg Female College of South Carolina. Comprised of 36 pages in a variety of hands, signed by women students and teachers of the schools, in addition to 9 inserted pieces. Bound in an ornate pebbled leather and gilt Album of Beauty, with all edges gilt and featuring engravings of young women throughout. Ownership signatures of Lizzie M. Solomons to front endpaper and rear pastedown. According to her own contributions to the album, Lizzie's family was from Spartanburg and she was enrolled at Orangeburg. Throughout, she is referred to by teachers as Mary (likely Elizabeth Mary) and by her cohort of friends as Cuttie. The present album is a unique example of the relationships of educated women from two different early Southern seminaries -- one highly conservative, and the other which would in a decade become absorbed into the state's first historically black college. Both Spartanburg and Orangeburg Female Colleges were early examples of women's seminaries in the South. For the former, the maintenance of a Southern cultural identity was a cornerstone; and the President's inaugural address emphasized the specific role of female education in the South: "Women were expected to be good mothers...without proper education, he lamented in his talk, women were susceptible to corruption. Education provided the solution to maintaining a proper Southern Culture" (Richmond). Of Orangeburg, a bit less is known. But approximately a decade after Lizzie's enrollment in the college, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Howard, Benjamin C
Cornelius Wendell, Washington, 1857. First edition of the report of the Dred Scott decision which held that the U.S. Constitution was not intended to include citizenship for African Americans. Octavo, original wrappers. In good condition with some small chips and ownership inscriptions to the front and rear wrappers. The Dred Scott v. Sandford case of 1857, popularly known as the "Dred Scott case", was a landmark decision made by the United States Supreme Court in which it ruled that the United States Constitution was not meant to include American citizenship for African Americans, regardless of whether they were enslaved or free, and so the rights and privileges that the Constitution confers upon American citizens could not apply to them. The decision was made in the case of Dred Scott, an enslaved black man whose owners had taken him from Missouri, which was a slave-holding state, into the Missouri Territory, most of which had been designated "free" territory by the Missouri Compromise of 1820. When his owners later brought him back to Missouri, Scott sued in court for his freedom. In an opinion written by Chief Justice Roger Taney, the Court ruled that black people "are not included, and were not intended to be included, under the word 'citizens' in the Constitution, and can therefore claim none of the rights and privileges which that instrument provides for and secures to citizens of the United States." The decision has been widely denounced ever since. Historian David Thomas Konig referred to it as "unquestionably, our court's worst decision ever."

An article in the complete issue of Proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society of London, no. IX, April & May, 1857. London: Edward Stanford, 1857. First edition. 8vo. pp. 329-364 [article at pp. 345-351]; some staining, good in the original printed wrappers. Signed to the front wrapper by Ed Hillary. Ownership inscription of Michael Ward to first leaf of text (doctor on the 1953 Everest Expedition). This article describes the naming of Mount Everest, and is signed by the first man to climb the mountain. Waugh's notice, just 2pp. long and dated Dehra, March 1st, 1856, marks the beginning of the Everest story in Britain. In this brief article, Waugh informs fellows of the RGS that the Survey of India's peak XV "is higher than any other hitherto measured in India, and most probably it is the highest in the whole world." He continues: "I was taught by my respected chief and predecessor, Colonel Geo. Everest, to assign to every geographical object its true local or native appellation. I have always scrupulously adhered to this rule, as I have in fact to all other principles laid down by that eminent graduist. But here is a mountain ... without any local name that we can discover ... I have determined to name this noble peak of the Himalayas 'Mont Everest.'" There follows a second notice in which B. H. Hodgson suggests that Everest does have a local name - Devadhunga - which should be adopted. In the discussion following the re … [Click Below for Full Description]
