        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'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'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. Sabin 4737; Muller, America, 1460.

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. Many of the fine portraits are taken from old pictures, drawings, and very rare plates, not known before' (Muller, America, p.87).Cat. NHSM I, p.353; Sabin 36635.

      . . An den Drucker Johannes Baensch-Drugulin (1858-1945) in Leipzig. Er bespricht ausführlich typographische Fragen zu seiner bei S. Fischer erscheinenden zehnbändigen Werkausgabe: "[...] Die Conturlettern sind gut geschnitten; [...]" Über Kolumnentitel, Schriftgrad und -art. - Der Brief dokumentiert, wie intensiv sich Dehmel mit der Gestaltung seiner Bücher befasste. Bereits am 22. Dezember 1905 hatte er den Buchkünstler Walter Tiemann mit der künstlerischen Austattung der Gesamtausgabe beauftragt (cf. Ausgewählte Briefe Nr. 447). Die Auseinandersetzungen zwischen Autor und Drucker ließen seinen neuen Verleger, S. Fischer, erstaunen: Satzspiegel, Doppeltitel u. Verlagssignet (von Dehmel als "Pfefferkuchen-Ornament" verspottet), Einbandarten, Leseband, Goldschnitt und Preis wurden heftigst diskutiert. Der Streit gipfelte in der Frage der Gestaltung des "Flammenbechers", des Dichters persönliches Signet. Trotz aller Widrigkeiten begann mit der Werkausgabe, 1906-09 erschienen, die langjährige, gedeihliche Zusammenarbeit zwischen Verleger und Autor. - Gelocht. 2 geringe Fehlstellen durch Tintenfraß.

Some wear to edges, slightly stained to reverse, but generally quite bright and clean. Attractive 'charity' theatre night, organised by Richard Thorne (and seemingly starring several members of his family), for the establishment of a Poor Box in Margate, he notes that the "rising importance of Margate (now a Corporate Borough) demands an advance of its interests, and I think if this object be effectively carried out, it will be a step in the right direction ... there cannot be a more gratifying or convincing proof of the admirable working of the system, or the estimation in which it is held by the Public, than the almost daily advertisement of liberal sums having been forwarded from noble or charitable persons. A Poor Box will give the Justices the opportunity of relieving necessitous cases, and if the Public will respond to this appeal, Margate will have the honour of taking the lead amongst County Boroughs in establishing so desirable an Institution". First Edition. Unbound. Good+. Silk Printing.

        Royal Engineers - Army Commission and Framed Portrait - SIGNED BY QUEEN VICTORIA

      England 1858 - Army Commission Signed by Queen Victoria With Portrait of Captain Daubuz Bengal Army to Royal Engineers 1862 London, 19 April 1862. Army commission signed in the original by Queen Victoria, at the Court of Saint James's, together with original framed portrait of Lieutenant Daubuz of the Royal Engineers Corps, to whom the certificate is issued. Qto. Single leaf, printed War Office certificate of appointment completed in manuscript, bearing revenue stamps and measuring approximately 35 x 24 cm, with clerk annotations to verso. Frame measures 19,5 x 23 cm. Slight age toning, document folded, otherwise in very good condition. Robert Claude Baril Daubuz (1837-1916) gained the rank of Captain in the esteemed service of the Royal Engineers, having first served and lived for a time in Kolkata, West Bengal, with the Bengal Engineers. In December 1856, at nineteen years of age and then a cadet of the East India Company's Service, he began his career with the Royal Army, being placed under the command of Colonel Sandham at Chatham, to learn the art of sapping and mining. On 27 August 1858 he was promoted to Lieutenant of the Bengal Engineers, and as confirmed by this document, incorporated with the same rank of Lieutenant in 1862 into the Corps of Royal Engineers. On 10 November 1869 he was promoted to second captain, 16 June 1875 he retired with a pension, and by 15 February 1879 he had resigned his commission as Captain-Commandant of the Submarine Miners, Hampshire Station. He is buried at the Ryde Cemetery, Isle of Wight.

        Die Zeichnungsübung, um 1864

      . Bleistift mit Weißhöhung und Aquarell auf Transparentpapier, unten rechts signiert: "A. Göbel", 11,9 x 13,8 cm. Diese Zeichnung ist ein treffendes Beispiel für Angbilbert Göbels meisterhaften Umgang mit dem Bleistift. Spontaneität und Genauigkeit vereinen sich hier in einem spannungsreich vernetzten Liniengefüge. Für Benno Reifenberg hat Göbel, dem er einen Text widmete, "die Bleistiftstriche wie Seidenfäden" versponnen und eben dies charakterisiert auch dieses Blatt. Göbel hat hier vermutlich seine beiden Kinder Oskar (geb. 1858) und Thekla (geb. um 1860) beim Zeichnen dargestellt. Eine im Städel Museum verwahrte seitenverkehrte Wiederholung unseres Blattes ist auf das Jahr 1864 datiert, was auch für unsere Arbeit ein entsprechendes Entstehungsjahr vermuten lässt. Doch die Zeichnung zeigt nicht nur eine aparte Zeichenübung. Sie ist auch eine Auseinandersetzung mit Traditionen. Der junge Zeichner im Zwiegespräch mit der Totenmaske Dantes betont zwar den Kontakt mit der Vergangenheit und es entspricht der romantischen Verehrung Dantes, dass dieser und nicht etwa eine antike Statue kopiert wird. Doch es ist eben auch die Totenmaske des Dichters, die deutlich das Vergangene artikuliert. Für die jungen Künstler kann sie als Studienobjekt dienen, doch von ihr geht keine Inspiration aus. Sie ist ein Requisit unter vielen. Angilbert Göbel hat dies in seinem eigenen Schaffen vorgelebt: Nicht die Historie ist für ihn von Interesse, sondern das wirkliche Leben. Wie gekonnt er dies im Bild umsetzten konnte, zeigt auch unsere wunderbare Zeichnung, die trotz der vermeintlichen Alltagsszene einen Bedeutungshorizont vermittelt, der weit über das bloß Dargestellte hinaus geht.

        The News Letter of Australasia; or Narrative of Events: A Letter to Send to Friends. April 1858

      Melbourne: John P. Brown, 1858.. Melbourne:: John P. Brown,. 1858.. Very good condition. A single cover sheet together with a four page news letter, the cover decorated with large engraving titled "Gold Diggers' Puddling Machine", showing gold diggers working with two of the horse drawn machines. Text below explains the process of gold washing, or puddling: "Our sketch illustrates the Gold-washing process, commonly known as Puddling. The machine, if such a simple arrangement can be so called, consists of a large circular, or rather annular trough, in which are two or more heavily loaded harrows. These are dragged round by a beam to which a horse is harnessed. The washing stuff is thrown into the trough, and then worked up with water into a state of coarse pulp. It is then removed to the long tom or other apparatus to be washed, by being thoroughly agitated with water until the clay has been washed away, and the gold left with the other heavy substances at the bottom. The deposit is then removed for final washing." Number XXII April 1858. On cream color tissue paper, 8 1/4 x 10 1/2". & & [With] Four page news letter, with the following note under the section pertaining to Western Australia: "From this dull colony we have no news except the arrival of a bishop and a schoolmaster, and the discovery (?) of gold". This refers the founder of the Hale School, the first bishop of Western Australia, Mathew Blagden Hale (1811 - 1895), who founded his Collegiate School in June 1858. Hale was founded on the model of the Collegiate School of St. Peter in Adelaide; it was known as the 'Bishop's School' and struggled, according to Hale because "[T]here is no such thing as convincing people that education pays. Making their sons messengers on a sheep station pays, and that settles the question". (A. De Q. Robin, Australian Dictionary of Biography). Today, Hale School is the oldest private boys' school in Western Australia, while sheep stations have to deal with the competition with synthetic fabrics. Slightly toned at bottom edge of the four page newsletter; not affecting text.
