        (Scarce wall bill from the most famous German travelling menagerie – including Miss Jenny, the Giant Elephant). - Die große Menagerie von E. Renz. Programm. Die Haupt-Vorstellung und Fütterung sämmtlicher Thiere.

      Frankfurt, J. G. Müller, s.d., but ca. 1858.. Typographic wall bill with 3 xylographic illustrations (the menageur Renz with his big cats). Size: 17 x 11.5 inches. A vertical and a horizontal fold to outer right and lower left margin, but not causing any defects. Printed on very thin paper, in very fine condition. Scarce wall bill advertising the feeding and the main show of Renz‘ menagerie of trained animals, with the “Giant Elephant” Miss Jenny being the highlight. Jenny, at the age of only 11 years but already weighing 3 tons, would perform several acts of artistry, a.o. firing a gun, balancing and doing a headstand, sitting down at a restaurant table and ringing the bell for ordering and more. The lower half of the wall bill describes the other animals in the menagerie, among which we find a huge selection of big cats (what Renz was especially known for): giant lions from the Barbary, cougars (felis convolor), king tigers from Bengal, panthers, jaguars and ocelots, but also a greenland-dog (probably a huskie), hyaenas, wolves, racoons, a polar bear, lamas and guanacos, different antelopes and a collection of monkeys and parrots as well as two boa constrictors. – The menagerie and circus of Christian Renz was one of the best known travelling menageries in Europe in the second half of the 19th century. It was founded by Ernst Jakob Renz (1815-1892) in Berlin in 1842 under the name ‘Circus olympique‘ and owned impressive menagerie buildings, a.o. in Berlin, Breslau, Bremen, Copenhagen Hamburg and Vienna. – A few comparable though not identical wall bills are held by special collections in Leipzig and Dresden.

        George (1821-1888) The States of Central America; their geography, topography, climate, population, resources productions, commerce, political organization, aborigines, etc

      xvi-[17]-782+[2 ad] pages with 5 maps (several fold out including pocket map0, 8 lithographic plates, 57 woodcuts, tables, bibliography and index. Thick royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/2") bound in original brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine and blind stamped edge ruled cover. Includes chapters on Honduras, San Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Belize, the Bay Islands, The Mosquito shore, and the Honduras inter-oceanic railway. First Edition.Squier was born in Bethlehem, New York, the son of a minister of English heritage and his Palatine German wife. In early youth he worked on a farm, attended and taught school, studied engineering, and became interested in American antiquities. The Panic of 1837 made an engineering career unfeasible, so he pursued literature and journalism. He was associated in the publication of the New York State Mechanic at Albany 1841-1842. In 1843-1848, he engaged in journalism in Hartford, Connecticut and then edited the Chillicothe, Ohio, weekly newspaper the Scioto Gazette. During this period, he collaborated with physician Edwin H. Davis on the book, Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley, which was issued in 1848. The work was a landmark in American scientific research, the study of the prehistoric Mound Builders of North America, and the early development of archaeology as a scientific discipline. The book was the first volume of the Smithsonian Institution's Contributions to Knowledge series and the Institution's first publication. Among Squier and Davis' most important achievements was their systematic approach to analyzing and documenting the sites they surveyed, including the Serpent Mound in Peebles, Ohio, which they discovered in 1846, and the mapping of the Mound City Group in Chillicothe, Ohio, which has been restored using their data and is now part of Hopewell Culture National Historical Park. He was appointed special chargé d'affaires to all the Central American states in 1849, and negotiated treaties with Nicaragua, Honduras, and San Salvador. In 1853 he made a second visit to Central America to examine a line for a projected interoceanic railroad, and to make further study of the archaeology of the country. In 1856 he received the medal of the French Geographical Society for his researches. In 1858, he married Miriam Florence Folline who had recently had a previous marriage annulled. About 1860, he became editor-in-chief for Frank Leslie's publishing house, and supervised the publication of the first two volumes of Frank Leslie's Pictorial History of the American Civil War. In 1863 Squier was appointed U. S. commissioner to Peru, where he made an exhaustive investigation of Inca remains and took numerous photographs of them. He later gave a series of 12 lectures on "The Inca Empire" for the Lowell Institute for their 1866-67 season. In 1868 he was appointed consul-general of Honduras at New York, and in 1871 he was elected the first president of the Anthropological Institute of New York. He conducted ethnological studies, especially in Nicaragua, Honduras and Peru. On returning from Peru, he continued working for Frank Leslie, but gave it up when his health failed. In 1873, his wife divorced him, and married Leslie a year later. In 1874 his health became so seriously impaired as to preclude further original research, and though he subsequently recovered sufficiently to direct the final preparation and revision of his work on Peru for publication, the affection resulted in his death. He was a member of numerous historical, archaeological, and scientific societies.Condition:Re-cased, corners gently bumped, some occasional foxing through out else a very good copy.

Staalgravure vervaardigd 1858 door Daniel Veelwaard voor de Nieuwe Atlas van Provincie Friesland van Wopke Eekhoff. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 59 x 77 cm.De Nieuwe Atlas van Provincie Friesland, werd in opdracht van het provinciebestuur gemaakt. Op 2 maart 1847 verscheen in de Leeuwarder Courant het ?Berigt van Inteekening op de uitgave van een nieuwe Atlas van Vriesland?. De prijs voor de hele atlas met 32 kaarten was fl. 48, losse kaarten kostten fl. 2 per stuk.Iedere kaart werd in de betreffende gemeente twee weken ter inzage gelegd. Via een voorafgaande publicatie in de Leeuwarder Courant meldde Eekhoff dat ?ieder in de gelegenheid wordt gesteld om daarop schriftelijke aanmerkingen aan het Bestuur mede te deelen?. Ook werd nog even vermeld dat men nog steeds voor twee gulden een losse kaart kon bestellen, ?dewijl die na de uitgave niet meer te bekomen zullen zijn?.Op zijn dertiende ging Wopke Eekhoff (1809 - 1880) in zijn geboortestad Leeuwarden aan het werk bij boekhandelaar en drukker G.T.N.

        Life, Trial, Confession, And Execution of Christian Sattler, For the..

      1858. "Christian Sattler is My Name, I Die a Death of Scorn and Shame" [Broadside]. [Execution]. Sattler, Christian [d. 1858]. Life, Trial, Confession, And Execution of Christian Sattler, For the Murder of Detective Thain. [London], S.n., [1858]. 19-1/2" x 14-1/2" broadside mounted on 22-1/2" x 15" thick-paper backing sheet. Text in three columns below headline and large woodcut execution scene within woodcut border. Light browning, minor creases to corners, a few chips to edges touching borders. $1,950. * Sattler was a German man who stole a bag of valuables belonging to a London stockbroker from an inn in Cambridgeshire (shortly after his release from jail). After stealing the bag Sattler fled to the continent and was tracked down and arrested in Hamburg by two London detectives, Charles Thain and William Jarvis. On the journey back to England, Thain left Sattler alone in his cabin where he found a pistol, which he used to murder Thain when he returned to Sattler's cabin. Sattler was found guilty and hanged at the Old Bailey on February 8, 1858. This broadside includes a contrite eight-stanza ballad in Sattler's voice. The text is divided into seven sections titled "The Execution," "The Life," "The Murder," "The Trial," "Conduct of the Prisoner," "A Commutation of Sentence" and "A Copy of a Letter." (The commutation was due to a legal technicality relating the nature of Sattler's arrest. "The Letter" is the text of a letter from Sattler's Father). No copies listed on OCLC.

        The Parting Look.

      George Baxter Patentee,, 1858. Baxter print. Size: 46.5 x 63.2 cm (18½ x 25 inches). Baxter stamp at lower right corner. Very good condition. After a painting The Parting Glance by by E, H Corbould. This is No. 363 as illustrated in "The Price guide to Baxter Prints" by A. Ball and M. Martin. "This print and No. 335 are the two largest prints produced by Baxter and this is one of his most popular productions." Baxter is regarded as the "Inventor" of colour printing. The Baxter process, which he patented in 1835, involved an initial metal keyplate and up to 20 wood or metal blocks to apply each individual colour. Baxter was concerned with the overall quality, he only used the best quality paper and mixed all his own oil inks. To gain perfect registration, alignment of all the blocks, was an art in itself. Each colour or layer of oil ink was built up to achieve what was a miniature oil painting, art for the masses. Apart from the sale of 'Oil Pictures' his prints were used to illustrate books, his 'Cabinet of Paintings' was the first to be published in full colour, as well as music sheets, needleboxes, boxes for handkerchiefs, playing cards etc.

        Civil War Diary

      1858. (CIVIL WAR) BAXTER, Archie, 141st New York Volunteers. Civil War Diary. No place: no publisher, [1864]. 24mo (measures 2-1/2 by 4 inches), original full black morocco, portfolio closure. $3600.Rare 1864 Civil War diary attributed to Archie Baxter of the New York 141st New York Volunteers, written in pencil in a legible hand, with written accounts of his and his unit's travels and actions, including front-line action and being wounded ""charging a post"" during the Battle of Resaca of the Atlanta Campaign (May 13-15, 1864) and taken to a field hospital.The small diary has entries for three days per page. The diary begins on April 7, with many days reading simply ""Bridgeport, Ala."" Located on both a rail line and the Tennessee River, Bridgeport was a key strategic site during the Civil War, with the Union turning the town into a major shipyard, building gunboats and transports for the Union Army. Baxter and his unit were on the move late April through May, with notations about the towns or areas he has reached (May 4 ""Left Shelmound and made Chatanooga at 8 o'clock PM"").His regiment participated in the Battle of Resaca from May 13-15, 1864, and during this time the writer saw front-line action and was wounded in battle. On May 13 he writes, ""Left Mill Creek Ridge and moved on Johnson's left flank""; May 14: ""Changed position from right center to extreme left""; and then on May 15: ""Wounded charging a post and taken to field hospital."" ""The regiment was heavily engaged at the battle of Resaca, where it lost 15 killed and 77 woundedÂ… The regiment started on the Atlanta campaign with 22 officers and 434 enlisted men. Its casualties in battle up to September 1 amounted to 210"" (The Union Army: a History of Military Affairs in the Loyal States, 1861-65 (1908)).May 24 the diarist writes ""Left field Hospital at Resica [sic] Geo. stopping at Dalton overnight."" On May 27, he notes, ""Arrived in Nashville Tenn and admitted into Genrl. Hospital."" May 28-June 6 are blank, followed by an entry on June 7, ""In Genrl. hospital."" He notes that he was discharged from hospital on June 8, and he saw more action soon after that. On the 13th of June he writes, ""Left Cartersville for the front."" June 14: ""Arrived at the front."" June 15: ""Archibald Arbuckle killed,"" mentioning five fellow soldiers ""wounded."" June 16: ""Tilman killed."" June 17: ""Rebels evacuated their works our army in pursuit."" June 18: ""In battle line in front of the enemy."" After that entry, Baxter mentions owing some money, and has written a few addresses down, but there are no more entries regarding his or his unit's movements or actions. Without 12 leaves, covering the dates January 1 through March 9; March 10-April 6 blank (as are several other leaves later in the diary). Four leaves that contained writing have been roughly removed, covering the period August 25-September 15. Marked on the inside cover ""Oostanaula River"" and ""Chickamauga,"" Chickamauga possibly in another, contemporary hand. A few sums penciled on front endpapers, final leaves and rear pastedown. From the Denis E. Reen collection, with his bookmark laid in.A few leaves in October and elsewhere loose, binding rubbed, wallet flap worn. A very good Civil War diary by a soldier who was wounded in action.
