        The Virginians a tale of the last century

      London: Bradbury & Evans, 1858-, 1859. Two volumes, octavo, plates thoughout; original stab holes, a nice set in half morocco, marbled paper sides (different pattern on each volume). A fine set bound from the original parts. After Vanity Fair, this was Thackeray's most famous work, continuing the story of the Esmond family through the history of their American descendants, the Warringtons. The novel traces the lives of the brothers George and Harry, their upbringing in Virginia, their experiences in England, and their involvement in the American Revolution, on opposing sides. Its survey of the effects of the Revolution, and of antebellum slavery, as famously depicted in the caricature of 'Gumbo', indentured to Harry, means that it is regarded as a valuable primary source in American social history. When it was first published, Thackeray's mild portrait of George Washington outraged some Americans by not displaying enough epic patriotism.

        MITLA: A Narrative of Incidents and Personal Adventures on a Journey in Mexico, Guatemala, and Salvador in the Years 1853 to 1855, with Observations on the Modes of Life in Those Countries

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, 1858. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First Edition. Edited by J.S. Bell. Five chromolithographs, including one folding, with several textual woodcuts and a folding map. London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, 1858. First edition. Tempsky (1828-68), a Prussian adventurer and talented artist, was educated at the Berlin Military Academy and served many years in the army and later as a mercenary. His wife, Emilia Bell, was born in Greytown, Nicaragua. This work is an interesting account of Tempsky's journey in Mexico, Tehuantepec, and Central America, and his attempt to portray the inhabitants "in a life-like manner." The text begins with an 1853 sea voyage aboard the French brig Independance from San Francisco to Mazatlan, Mexico. The author had spent the three previous years in California (he has been described as John Sutter's personal bodyguard). Later, Tempsky immigrated to Australia and then went on to New Zealand, where he was killed in bush fighting against the Maoris. Octavo. The period full calf binding has been expertly rebacked in matching tan calf, with five raised bands and decorative gilt stamping. An ink inscription dated 1861 appears on a prefatory blank leaf. Some dust staining to the top edge. A few minor nicks and scuff to the leather; else very good..

        Mitla. A Narrative of Incidents and Personal Adventures on a Journey in Mexico, Guatemala, and Salvador in the Years 1853 to 1855

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, , 1858. With Observations on the Modes of Life in those Countries. Edited by J.S. Bell. Octavo. Contemporary calf by Bickers & Son, red morocco label, low bands with dotted helical twist, compartments gilt, double fillet panel to the boards, small rosette corner-pieces, milled gilt edge-roll, marbled edges and endpapers, blind milling to the turn-ins, marbled endpapers and edges. Chromolithographic frontispiece and 4 other similar plates, one of them folding, 9 wood-engraved plates, 2 wood-engravings to the text, folding map, coloured in outline, at the rear. Lightly rubbed, lightly browned, some foxing to the plates and offsetting from them, overall very good. First edition. Coming from a Prussian military family von Tempsky (1828–1868) was destined for the army, but on leaving cadet school in Berlin he served in his father's old regiment for just 9 months before heading out to the Mosquito Coast in search of adventure among the German colonists there. "The Mosquito Kingdom had been established with British support before the arrival of the Prussian colonists, and when it came under attack from Nicaraguan forces Tempsky saw action for the first time as an officer in the local militia" (The Encyclopedia of New Zealand). Hearing of the Gold Rush in California von Tempsky set out for San Francisco, arriving in July 1850. He signally failed to make his fortune and in July 1853, "Tempsky decided to return to Bluefields through Mexico, Guatemala and San Salvador … [experiencing] a number of exciting adventures on the 18 month journey. Tempsky kept a record of these events, which later formed the substance of his book, Mitla, published in London in 1858 and illustrated with his own watercolours". He later emigrated to Australia, drifting eventually to New Zealand where he died serving in the Maori War. Despite his brief time there, Tempsky established himself as "one of the most colourful characters of nineteenth century New Zealand". An attractive copy with a contemporary prize bookplate of Billericay Grammar School to the front pastedown.

A very good copy. "An effort has been made, by the use of Types very similar to those employed by Caxton, to give this reprint something of the Appearance of the Original. To effect this still further, the Types were cast expressly in Pewter, which, from its Softness, yields an Impression resembling more the Productions of the early Printers than could be obtained from harder materials. Great care has been taken to make the Text an accurate Reproduction of the Original". (Preface). Fifteenth century books on health are very rare. This is a health maintenance manual focusing on how to keep men (not women) healthy, with occasional notes on ill - health. Both parts were published anonymously and The Governayle of Helthe has been variously attributed to John de Bordeaux and also to Bartholomaeus Montagnana, the younger, the Medecyne of Ye Stomacke has been attributed to John Lydgate. Caxton's edition was not reprinted until our edition of 1858 which is beautifully printed. William Blades the editor and publisher of our edition was deeply interested in Caxton and wrote the Life and Typography of William Caxton, England's First Printer, which was published in 1861 - 1863.

        Hochgebirgslandschaft mit Gehöft in Tirol.

      . Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts unten bezeichnet und datiert "Gehöft im Tirol 1858". 19,7:20,5 cm, an den Ecken auf Untersatz montiert. Vertikale Knickfalte links geglättet, leichter Lichtrand oben.. Elise Crola, Tochter eines Bankiers, wuchs in einem künstlerisch-musisch orientierten Elternhaus auf. Hier verkehrten neben Wissenschaftlern auch Maler und Bildhauer wie W. von Schadow (1788-1862), Chr.D. Rauch (1777-1857), C.J. Begas (1794-1854), C.W. Wach (1787-1845) und ihr Vetter E.J.F. Bendemann (1811-1889), der spätere Direktor der Dresdner Gemäldegalerie. Ihre Eltern förderten die künstlerische Begabung ihrer Tochter - auch Schadow, der sie in jungen Jahre porträtiert hatte ("Die Poesie"), empfahl ihren Eltern, das Talent ihrer Tochter zu fördern. So erhielt sie früh Zeichenunterricht durch den Porträt- und Miniaturmaler J.F. Zimmermann (tätig 1796-1838). Im Alter von 18 Jahren heiratete sie den vierzehn Jahre älteren Baron K.H.L. von Weiher; die kinderlose Ehe wurde 1836 auf Drängen ihrer Familie und gegen ihren Willen geschieden. Kurz darauf lernte sie in Berlin den Maler Georg Heinrich Crola (1804-1879) kennen, sie trafen sich wieder in Ilsenburg, wo sie sich bevorzugt aufhielt, und heirateten 1840. Gemeinsam entschied man, in Ilsenburg sesshaft zu werden und erwarb schließlich 1847 ein großes Haus. Obwohl sie fünf Kinder gebar, unternahm sie gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann nicht nur zahlreiche Fahrten nach Berlin, Dresden und auf die Insel Rügen, sondern auch nach Dänemark, Schweden und in die Alpen. Zudem führten sie in Ilsenburg ein reges gesellschaftliches Leben. Zu ihren Künstlerfreunden zählten u.a. P. von Cornelius (1783-1867), L. Richter (1803-1884) und W. von Kügelgen (1802-1867). Elise zeigte zudem ein ausgeprägtes soziales Engagement und wurde zur Wohltäterin der Alten und Armen. Nicht näher zu spezifizierende Beschwerden zwangen sie jedoch zu Reisen, z.B. eine vermutlich anderthalbjährigere Reise gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann 1854 in die Schweiz. Auch zwei längere Aufenthalte in Italien zwecks Erholung sind zu belegen. Ihr künstlerisches Schaffen, sie arbeitete meist mit dem Bleistift, selten in Aquarell, wird von figürlichen Themen, Porträts, Tierdarstellungen, Veduten und Landschaften bestimmt. Daneben betätigte sie sich bildhauerisch (Porträts). Später bemalte sie auch Porzellane und Gebrauchsgegenstände. Im Hüttenmuseum Ilsenburg wurde Ende der 1990er Jahre eine Crola-Stube eingerichtet.

        Political Debates between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas in the Celebrated Campaign of 1858, in Illinois

      Columbus: Follett, Foster and Company. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of the Lincoln-Douglas debates. A SUPERB COPY in original cloth. Almost immediately after losing the 1858 race for the U.S. Senate to Stephen A. Douglas, Lincoln began collecting reports and transcriptions of his great debates with Douglas as they appeared in various Chicago newspapers. He later handed his notes and records over to the influential Republican operative Oran Follett of Ohio who published them in 1860, just in time for Lincoln&#39;s presidential campaign. The book- a huge success, selling out in only a few months - has been cited as a significant influence in helping Lincoln gain the presidency. First issue, with no rule above publisher&#39;s imprint on copyright page, no ads, and the number "2" at the bottom of page 17. Provenance: With what appears to be the signature on the front free endpaper of Charles Van Rensselaer, a member of the extraordinarily wealthy and influential Van Rensselaer family of New York. Columbus: Follett, Foster and Company, 1860. Octavo, original blind-stamped cloth; custom box. Occasional foxing (much less than usual). Cloth in a remarkable state of preservation. An outstanding copy of a book that is notoriously difficult to find in good condition.

        Tagebuch einer Reise vom Mississippi nach den Küsten der Südsee.

      Leipzig: Hermann Mendelssohn, 1858. - 4to., (12 1/8 x 9 5/8 inches). Half title. Fine folding lithographed map after Henry Langewith original hand coloring in outline (slight offsetting). Chromolithographed frontispiece mounted on card, engraved vignette title page (one or two spots), 6 chromolithographed plates mounted on card and six tinted lithographed plates, all after Möllhausen, nine in-text woodcuts (light spotting). Original publisher's blue cloth, title stamped in gilt to front cover, the smooth spine elaborately decorated in gilt (expertly rebacked, one or two pale stains). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript inscription to front free endpaper. First edition. Möllhausen, a Prussian artist, who visited the United States three times in the 1850s, experiences which "gave Möllhausen the material and experiences he used to produce illustrations, diaries, and fiction for nearly fifty years. His works made him enormously popular with Germans of all ages and classes, and he has become known as 'the German Cooper.' After arriving in the United States in 1849 and working in the Midwest, in 1851 Möllhausen traveled through the Plains to Fort Laramie with Prince Paul of Württemberg. He returned to Germany in 1852 with a shipment of wild animals for the Berlin zoo and met Alexander von Humboldt. He soon became a favorite of the old explorer and, bearing a recommendation from Humboldt, returned to the United States, where he joined Lt. Amiel Weeks Whipple's Pacific Railroad survey of the Thirty-fifth parallel as 'topographer or draughtsman.' The party traveled from Fort Smith, Arkansas, to Pueblo de los Angeles in 1853-54. Möllhausen made several illustrations in the Texas Panhandle that appear in Whipple's report" (Doherty). 'Tagebuch' is Möllhausen's separate account of this expedition with Whipple (Kathleen Doherty for Texas State Historical Association). "In addition to the account in journal form of his experiences as topographer of Whipple's surveying expedition in 1853, there is an account of his experiences in the West in 1851 on a trip from St. Louis to Laramie with Prince Paul of Wurttemberg" (Streeter).

        Scènes de la vie américaine, description de la Guyane Hollandaise.

      Bruxelles, Bruylant-Christophe et Comp., (ca.1858).Folio. Original pictorial boards (spine half cloth). With 100 views and illustrations on 50 full-page lithographed plates, including the fine frontispiece, by Madou and Lauters after the author (margins browned, not affecting the image). 96 pp.* First published in Bruxelles in 1839 with the title: Voyage a Surinam. - Benoit was born in 1782 in Antwerp and died in Brussels in 1854. His stay in Surinam was a private enterprise, probably in 1831. Judging from the many journeys he made into the interior and the time he spent among the Indians and Bush negroes and in the town of Paramaribo, he must have stayed in Surinam for many months. He does not refrain from pointing out the many difficulties, dangers and privations he managed to overcome during that period. Benoit belonged to the opponents of the abolition of slavery. He cannot avoid picturing the harsh and cruel daily existence of the slaves and explaining why they run away, revolt against their masters and are filled with hatred towards the whites. When describing their dance-festivals, he says that the need to find an outlet for their misery accounts for the frenzy with which they throw themselves into it. He produced a large number of charming and meticulous drawings during his stay. This very attractive set of views of Surinam include fine scenes of native life, showing costumes, dwellings, ceremonies, festivals, recreations, interiors, utensils, etc. of the negro- and Indian population and the Dutch planters. There are also several views of Paramaribo, plantation houses, a slave auction, and public buildings in Surinam. A remarkable collection of handsome lithographed views depicting plantation life in Surinam. Suriname-Catalogus UB Amsterdam 0579; See Introduction of the reprint edition by Silvia W. de Groot; Cf.

It is the more important as many of these documents were consumed, after the publication of the work, in the great fire of 1853, which destroyed a part of the Archives. Its value for the American collector needs not to be specified, as it contains very ample material for the history of the West-India-Company, the early expeditions to America, the wars with the Spaniards and Portuguese there, and the transmarine colonies.
