        Partly Printed Document Signed

      New Orleans, LA, 1857. unbound. 1 page, 13 x 7.75 inches, New Orleans, Louisiana, January 9, 1857 -- a slave-sale contract between notorious slave trader Alexander Hagan and famed agriculturalist Dr. Hallar Nutt, State of Louisiana, in part: "...in consideration of the sum and price of sixteen hundred dollars, cash on hand...I transfer unto Hallar Nutt...of the Seventh Parish...State of Louisiana...a certain negro man, slave for life, named Frank Jones, a meat cook and tailor, aged about thirty..." Signed at the conclusion: "Alexdr. Hagan." On the back Dr. Nutt has docketed his purchase: "Frank Jones, cook & tailor, $1,600." A scarce item that should be of particular interest for Louisiana collectors. Fine condition. Dr. Hallar Nutt (1816 - 1864) was one of the most successful cotton planters in all of Louisiana prior to the Civil War, with land holdings that exceeded 43,000 acres and 800 slaves. He is most famous for developing a new strain of cotton, the Egypto-Mexican hybrid which dominated the global cotton market in the 19th century. Though a Union sympathizer, it did little to protect his vast properties and large store houses which were heavily looted by both armies. He died of pneumonia in 1864.

        The Plates of Maclise's Surgical Anatomy, with the Descriptions from the English Edition ... Printed in Oil Colors, after Baxter's Process

      Boston: John J. Jewett and Company, 1857. 36 colored plates. 4to. Publisher's black cloth, title stamped in gilt on the front cover. Rebacked, one plate starting. 36 colored plates. 4to. American edition of the medical illustrations from Joseph Maclise's Surgical Anatomy, first printed in London, 1851, with hand-colored lithographical plates. The plates, which show successive states of dissection of the human body, are printed here in oil, using Baxter's process, which the editor explains in the preface: "The plates have been printed in oil colors, at the establishment of Mr. Charles H. Crosby and the work done mainly by Mr. John O'Neil. "... the first attempt we believe, to give a series of scientific plates executed in this manner; and they have therefore ... been submitted to ... Profs. Haywood, H.G. Bigelow, Agassiz, etc, etc and have met with warm approval." R.M. Burch explains George Baxter's process in Colour Printing and Colour Printers (1910): "Baxter's process was simply the colouring of an impression from an outline or key block ... by successive impressions from colour blocks of wood or metal, one for each tint used. The intention was avowedly to produce 'ornamental prints' in colours, 'resembling a highly coloured painting, whether in oil or water-colours,' [quoted from Baxter's patent] instead of monochrome prints coloured by hand in the manner commonly seen in, for example, Ackermann's well-known publications; there was, in fact, no colour printing in use in England at the time when Baxter commenced his work [he filed his patent in 1835], and for a few years he had the field to himself" (p. 126).

Conatty, a public school teacher in Kenosha and a prominent figure in the Wisconsin Teachers' Association. He was later implicated in a bribery scheme with James Rood Doolittle, Senator from Wisconsin [1857-1869]. On Conatty's behalf Doolittle was to use his influence with President Lincoln to obtain cotton permits during General Banks's occupation of New Orleans; in return, Doolittle would receive 25% of the profits.

(Originally published in the US as separate volumes; Volume I & II: 1850, Volume III: 1851; Volume IV: 1856). ***Tiny contemporaneous bookbinders label to bottom of rear pastedown of Volume I: 'Bound by Bone & Son, 76 Fleet Street, London.' ***Complete in four volumes. With a memoir by Rufus Wilmot Griswold and Notices of his Life and Genius by N. P. Willis and J. R. Lowell. Volume I: Tales; Volume II: Poems & Tales; Volume III: Critical Essays; Volume IV: Arthur Gordon Pym. ***An engraved tissue-guarded black and white steel engraving of Edgar Allan Poe to the fore of Volume I.: 'Engraved by J.

Poe was fascinated by crime and premature burial, his writing featuring crypts, entombments and the theme of physical morbidity. He was an early short story writer, and considered by many literary scholars to have invented the genre of detective fiction. He also contributed to the new genre of science fiction. He also had made unique literary contributions to cosmology, cryptography and animal magnetism. For example, in "Eureka" [which Poe considered to be a poem] he describes the origins of the universe in a single particle, from which radiated the atoms of which all matter is made forming the physical universe; he thought that space and ¿duration¿ were the same, that a star may emit no light, that there was a repulsive force to counteract gravity, universes simultaneous with ours and our universe might collapse and another universe erupt out of it, that the present universe may be just one of many - his ideas pre-figuring physics in the 21st century. ***This first UK edition of four volumes edited by Rufus Wilmot Griswold 1815-1857 was the first attempt at collecting both Poe's poetry and prose, and the first collection of Poe's critical, editorial and miscellaneous writings. It is also the edition upon which Charles Baudelaire based his translations of Poe's works and became the standard edition of Poe's works. ***Ultra-rare first impression of the first UK collected edition of Edgar Allan Poe: The Works, complete in four volumes, especially scarce to find in their original contemporaneous cloth-covered boards. ***Of interest to collectors of rare literary antiquarian first editions and Edgar Allan Poe. ***We know of no other UK first editions of Edgar Allan Poe: The Works Collected Edition complete in four volumes in their original cloth bindings for sale worldwide. ***Scarce. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Carta della Telegrafia Elettrica in Europa

      Napoli 1857 - Dovuta a Samuel Morse, risale agli anni quaranta dell’800. Nel giro di pochi anni il sistema di comunicazione si diffuse in tutta Europa soppiantando i più antichi telegrafi ottici, di portata limitata. In Italia il sistema telegrafico venne introdotto nel 1849, nel Lombardo-Veneto, con la linea Innsbruck-Verona, che giungeva sino a Vienna e quindi, da Verona, a Milano e a Venezia. In meno di un decennio tutti gli stati italiani avevano introdotto la telegrafia elettrica e tutto il territorio, soprattutto quello settentrionale, ne era servito. Nel Mezzogiorno la prima tratta fu tra Caserta e Capua nel 1851 e, come risulta dalla carta di Marzolla, si estese subito verso nord e verso sud, raggiungendo la Calabria e la Sicilia. Nel 1858 risultano in progetto i tratti da Capua verso L’Aquila e Pescara, e da Ariano verso Brindisi. Nello Stato Pontificio si stava lavorando al tratto tra Roma e Siena, per congiungersi con Firenze e il nord. Sono segnalati anche i cavi sottomarini, la cui prima posa avvenne, nel 1850, tra Dover e Calais. Quello nello Stretto di Messina, il primo italiano, fu posto nel 1851, seguito da quello tra Sarzana, la Corsica e la Sardegna (1854). Si tratta di un documento di straordinaria importanza in quanto restituisce in un solo sguardo un complesso di dati e di informazioni oggi difficilmente reperibili e sparse in pubblicazioni e fonti archivistiche di non immediato reperimento. La carta fu realizzata nel 1857, nello Stabilimento Geografico di Benedetto Marzolla (1801-1858), cartografo e geografo brindisino formatosi nell’Officio Topografico di Napoli. Marzolla poteva avere accesso ad un’enorme quantità di dati geografici e di informazioni in quanto, dal 1852, era redattore nella Commissione di Statistica del Regno di Napoli, istituita nell’ambito del Ministero degli Interni. Litografia, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: V. Valerio, Benedetto Marzolla. Brindisino, Geografo e Cartografo dell’800 Europeo, Dimensioni 820x600. One of the first maps ever published depicting the electric telegraphy, whose first use, thanks to Samuel Morse, started in the 1840s. In a few years, this communication system spread all over Europe, ousting the ancient optic telegraphers, with a limited range. This new system started operating in Italy in 1849, in the Lombardo-Veneto area, on the Innsbruck-Verona line, connecting Vienna, Verona, Milan and Venice. In less than ten years all the Italian States had introduced the electric telegraphy and the whole territory was using this system, especially in the North. The first line to open in the Southern part was the one connecting Caserta to Capua, in 1851 immediately extending, as the map of Marzolla shows, southbound, to Calabria and Sicily. There are evidences of projects realized in 1858 to extend the lines from Capua towards L’Aquila and Pescara, and from Ariano towards Brindisi. The Papal State was working on the line which had to connect Rome to Siena, to reach afterwards Florence and the North. The map shows also some submarine cables, placed for the first time in 1850, between Dover and Calais. The first submarine cable of Italy, in the Straits of Messina, was placed in 1851, followed by the one between Sarzana, Corsica and Sardinia (1854). This work is a very interesting document, for it provides, at a glance, a whole of data and information that nowadays could be hardly recovered, being kept in different sources. The map was realized in 1857, at the Stabilimento Geografico of Benedetto Marzolla (1801-1858), cartographer and geographer from Brindisi, who studied at the Officio Topografico in Naples. Marzolla had the chance to access a huge amount of geographic data and information for, starting from 1852, he worked as a compiler for the Commissione di Statistica of the Reign of Naples, created by the Minister of the Interior. Litograph, contemporary outline colour, in excellent condition. Bibliografia: V. Valerio, Benedetto Mar

        A Catalogue of the Bibliotheca Orientalis Sprengeriana.

      Giessen: Wilhelm Kelle 1857 - Octavo in half-sheets (209 × 125 mm). Contemporary sprinkled paper boards, green paper spine label, sprinkled edges. Contemporary bookseller's ticket of Luzac and Co. to front pastedown. Spine rubbed, extremities lightly bumped and worn. A very good copy. First and only edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author to fellow German orientalist Johann Gildemeister on the front free endpaper, dated March 1857. Laid in is a copy of Sprenger's 18-page pamphlet, Dr. Halm und die Bibliotheca Sprengeriana (Heidelberg: Adlon, 1857), a response to the outrage expressed by the Bavarian state librarian at the sale of his collection to the Prussian archives in Berlin – the pamphlet extremely uncommon, with only the Yale copy traced in libraries. Sprenger (1813–1893), an Austrian orientalist, travelled to India in 1843, becoming principal of Delhi College and secretary to the Asiatic Society of Calcutta. He was a prolific editor of Arabic and Persian texts previously extant only in manuscript, as well as the author of numerous original works, most notably a life of Muhammad. On his travels he collected hundreds of manuscripts which he brought back to Europe, making several texts, notably the hadith, available to European scholars for the first time. Gildemeister (1812–1890) was professor of oriental languages at Bonn and Marburg. He focused mainly on Sanskrit but in 1836 published an edition of the section on India from al-Mas'udi's Muruj al-dhahab, an important tenth-century chronicle in Arabic; Sprenger began an edition soon after for the Oriental Translation Fund, though only managed one volume, published in 1841. Both items come from the library of British colonial agent and Arabist Colonel Samuel Barrett Miles (1838–1914), with his ownership inscription to front pastedown, a printed bookplate indicating his widow's bequest of his collection to Bath Public Library in 1920, with association manuscript shelf-marks and blind-stamps as usual: an excellent additional association.

      Derby & Jackson, New York 1857 - Offered here are three very scarce and separate editions issued by Derby & Jackson in 1857, but not simultaneously, and never anticipated as a set. Six separate titles, similar bound in contemporary three quarter brown calf, five raised bands, gilt lettering on spine, marbled boards, marbled endsheets and marbled edges. Owned by same individual (contemporaneously) and passed down through family, and inscribed in all three volumes on front fly: "A. B. Parker, Oct. 2, 1866." As well, Parker has added his accession number into each volume, "No. 32, No. 33, and No. 34," respectively. A rare grouping, made more interesting by common provenance, putting these rare editions together in one place. Mostly very good, one volume with spine chipped away on top panel. Hinges split and chipped, except Sense and Sensibility which are intact. Calf and marbled paper showing wear, corners bumped and chipped, browning especially to prelims, one signature neatly sprung, not detracting. Most rare thus. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Das Bedürfnis eines zweckmäßigen Unterrichts in der Malerei und plastischen Kunst. Weiters: Vorschläge zur Reform der österr.- kaiserlichen Akademie der bildenden Künste. Sowie: Andeutungen zur Belebung der vaterländischen Kunst.

      Wien, -, 1846 - 1849 - 1857. - 3 Hefte. 8°. 47, 23, 115 S. OBrosch. in Biedermeierkassette. Waldmüller, (1793 - 1865), studierte 1807-13 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in Wien, bildete sich an den alten Meistern und durch das Studium der Natur weiter und begann als Miniaturmaler. 1811-13 war er gräflicher Zeichenlehrer in Agram, dann Theaterdekorationsmaler in Prag und Brünn und wurde 1829 Erster Kustos der Gemäldegalerie und Prof. an der Akademie der Schönen Künste in Wien. Bis 1851 unterrichtete er auch Historienmalerei und führte bis 1854 eine viel besuchte private Malschule. Schon 1846 hatte er gegen die Lehrweise der Akademie die Streitschrift Das Bedürfnis eines zweckmäßigeren Unterrichts in der Malerei und plastischen Kunst veröffentlicht. Waldmüllers Andeutungen zur Hebung der vaterländischen Kunst (1857) führten zu seiner vorzeitigen Pensionierung mit halbem Gehalt. Seit 1864 wurde ihm von Kaiser Franz Joseph I. die volle Pension zuteil. Waldmüller schuf mehr als tausend Ölbilder, daneben wenige Aquarelle und Zeichnungen. In naturgetreuer und nuancenreicher Farbgebung malte er Porträts Wiener Bürger (Rosina Wiser, 1822), Stilleben und Landschaften, häufig mit Motiven aus dem Wienerwald, dem Prater und dem Salzkammergut (Der Wolfgangsee, 1835). Im Kampf gegen den akademischen Klassizismus arbeitete er überwiegend in der freien Natur (Pleinairmalerei). In der Vorliebe für Lichtwirkungen nahm er Aspekte des Impressionismus (u.a. der Schule von Barbizon) vorweg, bewahrte aber in den plastischen Eigenschaften seiner Figuren und Objekte sowie in der kompositionellen Ausgewogenheit Ausdrucksmittel der Historienmalerei. Waldmüller wurde zum Hauptvertreter der Biedermeiermalerei und mit seinen genau beobachteten Genrebildern (Perchtoldsdörfer Bauernhochzeit, 1843) zum Vorläufer des Realismus in der österr. Malerei. (DBE) - Hier das Gesamtwerk der schriftlichen Aufzeichnungen Waldmüllers. In der von Arthur Roessler und Gustav Pisko im Selbstverlage edierten Schriften (Wien 1907) wurde die erste Publikation (Das Bedürfnis eines zweckmäßigen Unterrichts in der Malerei und plastischen Kunst) nur in der zweiten Ausgabe abgedruckt. Die drei Schriften Waldmüllers gelten als unauffindbar. Zwischen 1950 - 2000 wurde kein einziges Exemplar verauktioniert. Ein RARISSIMUM! [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Souvenir-Album von Konstantinopel für den sich seinerzeit etablierenden Orient-Tourismus mit 30 photographischen Aufnahmen aus dem bedeutenden Fotostudio Sébah & Joailler. Das Fotostudio wurde 1857 in Istanbul von Pascal Sébah (1823-1886), einem der führenden Photographen im osmanischen Reich, gegründet. Nach dem Tod des Gründers wurde der französische Photograf Policarpe Joaillier (1848-1904) 1884/85 zum Partner und führte das Unternehmen schließlich unter dem Namen Sébah-Joaillier weiter. Stilistisch fotografierte er in der Tradition des Ateliergründers weiter und es entstand eine groß angelegte Serie von Landschafts- und Monumentalfotografien von Instanbul. Die Firma erhielt das Recht, den Titel Photographen des Sultans zu tragen. Die Fotografien wurden unter anderem zur Illustration von wissenschaftlichen Werken über den Orient verwendet. 1890 übernahm der nun 18-jährige Sohn des Gründers, Jean-Pascal Sébah, das Geschäft. Die lange und komplexe Firmengeschichte macht es schwierig, die Urheberschaft der einzelnen Aufnahmen eindeutig nachzuvollziehen. Hinweise geben die Signaturen: Jean Pascal Sébah hatte die Signatur seines Vaters P. Sebah um seine Initialen auf J. P. Sebah erweitert, Joaillier wiederum signierte mit Sebah & Joaillier. Bei unserem Album sind 15 Aufnahmen mit Sebah & Joaillier u. nur eine Aufnahme m. P. Sébah gezeichnet, die übrigen sind nicht signiert. - Die Aufnahmen zeigen Typen, Straßenszenen und Bauwerke. - DIESES OBJEKT UNTERLIEGT DER DIFFERENZBESTEUERUNG.
