MARMONT (Auguste-Frédéric-Louis Viesse, duc de Raguse).
Paris, Perrotin, 1857, 9 volumes in-8 ; demi-chagrin de l'époque, dos à nerfs ornés. -Rousseurs claires éparses. -Très bon exemplaire, très bien relié. Ornés de 2 portraits (dont 1 en couleurs), 4 fac-similés dépl., 2 cartes dépl. et 1 tableau dépl..Edition parue la même année que l'originale."Si ces mémoires sont intéressants pour l'époque révolutionnaire, car, proche de Bonaparte, Marmont est un de ceux qui a le mieux évoqué la jeunesse de ce dernier, ils témoignent d'un esprit de dénigrement systématique de leur auteur envers le personnel militaire et politique qu'il a côtoyé. La Restauration occupe la fin du tome 7 et les pp. 1 à 334 du tome 8. Marmont insiste particulièrement sur les époques où son attitude a prêté à des violentes critiques : première Restauration et Cent-Jours, journées de juillet 1830, alors que Marmont était chargé de réprimer l'insurrection." (Bertier de Sauvigny et Fierro, Bibliographie critique et mémoires sur la Révolution)."Mémoires vengeurs." (Tulard, Dict. Napoléon).

Frankreich. - 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.

Er gilt als „einer der bedeutendsten Orientalisten seiner Zeit und wurde mit seinen Arbeiten zur hebräischen Grammatik, darunter ‚Kritische Grammatik der hebräischen Sprache’ [.], der eigentliche Begründer der semitischen Sprachwissenschaft.

With folding wood-engraved frontispiece depicting the Victoria Falls by Whymper, engraved portrait (margins foxed), a folding cross section, 2 folding maps and 42 wood-engraved plates and illustrations. X,687pp.First edition, first issue. - An account of Livingstone's first expedition (1853-1856). With the help of the Makololos, a South African tribe, Livingstone planned to explore the whole of southern Africa as far as Angola. The missionary had become an important explorer. As the first European, he traveled on the Zambezi to Kazembe in a pirogue, a fast water vessel made from a tree trunk. In order to escape from the slave traders of Portuguese Africa, Livingstone traveled via Cassange and Bihé to Luanda, a Portuguese port and the capital of Angola, where he arrived completely exhausted on 31 May, 1854. As soon as he had recovered from his fever, he undertook a trek to Lake Dilolo, discovered the source of the Kasai, a left tributary of the Congo, and arrived in Linyanti, the capital of the Makololos. In the course of the major Zambezi expedition that followed he discovered the Victoria Falls, the falls of the middle Zambezi, in 1855 (Waldmann, Ecyclopedia of world explorers, p.226). 'Livingstone's services to African geography. are almost unequalled. he explored vast regions of central Africa, many of which had never been seen by white men before' (Printing and the Mind of Man 341). - Some foxing as usual , first fly-leaf missing, otherwise fine.Mendelssohn I, p.908-10; … [Click Below for Full Description]

Schenectady, New York: Union College, 1857. Hardcover. Very Good. Large hardcover, 9 1/2 x 8 inches (approx), portraits of faculty and graduates with pages of inscriptions and signatures between, unnumbered pages, commencement address and several other documents in rear; three quarter bound in brown Morocco with four raised bands to spine and gilt decorations and titles, boards rubbed and scuffed, especially at extremities, joints just beginning to crack at ends, marbled end papers, scattered foxing and brown spots throughout, binding sound. Book is large and heavy. The yearbook belonged to Henry R. Lovell, who seemed to be popular with his classmates and who was the recipient of a prize scholarship. The yearbook is most notable, however, because Henry Rathbone was a classmate of Lovell and is included along with an inscription and signature. Rathbone was one of the last people to talk to President Abraham Lincoln on the night of his assassination in 1864. He and his wife Clara were guests of the Lincoln's at the Ford Theatre on the fateful night. Rathbone tried to grab John Wilkes Booth after the assassin fired his derringer at the back of Lincoln's head. He was seriously injured when Booth used a knife to slash his arm, then made his escape. He spent the next twenty years wondering if he could have saved the President. In 1883,after a bout of worsening headaches, and marital discord, he stabbed his wife to death on Christmas day, then tried to commit suicide. He was found insane, and spent the rest of his life in an asylum, where he died in 1911.

KEMBALL, Brigadier General A.G
Printed by Thacker & Co. Ltd, 1857. First edition; 8vo; original cloth, eight mounted silver gelatin-print photographic plates. Presentation copy from the Regiment to the author. The 31st Punjabis was an infantry regiment of the British Indian Army. It was raised in 1857, as Van Cortlandt's Levy. The regiment was designated as the 31st Punjabis in 1903 and became 2nd Battalion 16th Punjab Regiment in 1922. In 1947, it was allocated to the Pakistan Army, where it continues to exist as 14th Battalion The Punjab Regiment. The regiment was raised during the upheaval of the Indian Mutiny, by General Van Cortlandt at Ferozepur on 22 May 1857. Their class composition was Punjabi Muslims, Sikhs, Dogras, Hill Rajputs and Gurkhas. The regiment took part in the Bhutan War of 1864-66, the Second Afghan War of 1878-80, and the Siege of Malakand in 1895-97. At Malakand, Sir Winston Churchill, who was covering the campaign as a war correspondent for the Daily Telegraph, was temporarily attached to the regiment. The future Prime Minister cut an impressive figure on his grey charger, being in the thick of action everywhere. He, however, was apparently disappointed when he was not allowed to take over the command of the regiment. During the First World War, the 31st Punjabis served in Mesopotamia and Salonika in Greece. It then served at Constantinople, Turkey as part of Allied occupation forces. A preface to the book states that most of the original records were lost in the evacuation at Malakand. The history was therefore re-written after that campaign by Brigadier General Kemball. Extreme … [Click Below for Full Description]

(UNDERGROUND RAILROAD.) Scaggs, Isaac
Baltimore, 7 September 1857. A UNIQUE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD SLAVE REWARD POSTER. Adam Smith rescued his family from slavery with the help of the Underground Railroad, thereby earning a permanent place in the annals of American freedom. He first appeared in the historical record on March 4, 1854, when Isaac Birch committed twenty-seven year old Adam to the Washington, D.C. slave jail as a runaway slave. Ten days later, he was released to Isaac Scaggs, suggesting that he had been sold to the Maryland slaveholder, "a real country ruffian" who "will sell a slave as quick as any other slave-holder." Three years later, on August 22, 1857, Adam ran away from the Scaggs farm. He and and two other men escaped to Philadelphia via the Underground Railroad with the assistance of William Still. In his classic The Underground Railroad (1872), Still reprinted the "$300 Reward" Baltimore Sun notice describing Adam and his escape. Still wrote: "... The story which Adamrelated concerning his master and his reasons for escaping ran thus: 'My master was a very easy man, but would work you hard and never allow you any chance night or day; he was a farmer, about fifty, stout, full face, a real country ruffian; member of no church, a great drinker and gambler; will sell a slave as quick as any other slave-holder. He had a great deal of cash, but did not rank high in society. His wife was very severe; hated a colored man to have any comfort in the world. They had eight adult and nine young slaves.' Adam left because he 'didn't like the treatment.' Twice he had been placed on the auction-block ..." … [Click Below for Full Description]

Livingstone, David
London: John Murray, 1857. Colored lithographed folding frontispiece of Victoria Falls, engraved portrait, 23 wood-engraved or lithographed plates, 2 folding maps. Contemporary red half calf and marbled boards. Rebacked preserving spine. Foxed. Cloth case FIRST EDITION. Presentation copy inscribed by the author: "Mrs Clare with the kindest regards of David Livingstone." Livingstone lived many years in South Africa and made three great expeditions, the first described in this book 1853-56, and the others in 1858-64 and 1865-73. "David Livingstone, perhaps the greatest of the African explorers ... discovered the Zambesi River at Secheke and followed it northwards, eventually reaching the west coast of Africa at Luanda, Angola, and the east coast at Quelimane, Mozambique. In 1855 he discovered the great falls of Zambesi and named them the Victoria Falls" (PMM). Livingstone's accomplishments in African exploration and geography are almost unequaled. He covered about a third of the Continent from the Cape to the Equator and from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean. This volume describes Livingstone's first and greatest expedition (1853-56) in which, among many other things, he discovered the great falls of the Zambesi and named them Victoria Falls. Europeans had never before seen much of the vast territory that Livingstone covered. "The geographical results of his journeys were of supreme importance, and made it possible to fill in great stretches of the maps of Central Africa which hitherto had been blank" (PMM).

Baudelaire, Charles
Paris: Poulet-Malassis et de Broise, 1857. First edition. First issue with the running title misprint "Feurs" on p. 31 and 108, p.45 misnumbered 44, and the misprint "captieux" on p. 201. It is complete with the six pièces condamnées whose removal was ordered only six weeks or so after publication (Les Bijoux, Le Léthé, A celle qui est trop gaie, Femmes damnées, Lesbos and Les Métamorphoses du vampire). Inscribed by the author on the half-title, "à M. Hostein, en lui demandant encore un peu de patience, Ch. Baudelaire." Ink a bit faded. Hippolyte Hostein was a writer and the director of the Théâtre de la Gaîté in Paris from 1849 to 1858. Baudelaire had proposed a play to Hostein, a melodrama based on his poem Le Vin de l'assassin, where a worker kills his wife so that he can descend into drink without interruption or criticism. The part of the wife was meant for Marie Daubrun, an actress at the Gaîté with whom Baudelaire had fallen in love. Baudelaire never wrote the play, and perhaps he sent this book as an apology for still not producing his text (see F.W.J. Hemmings, Baudelaire the Damned, 2011). 12mo (189 x 122mm.), half-title, later crushed brown morocco by L. Peeters of Antwerp, top edge gilt, others uncut, original yellow printed wrappers in their second state (with the five typographical faults uncorrected and with the price of 3F. on the backstrip) bound in, marbled paper slipcase, small area of loss to lower corner of upper wrapper.
