        Wagon Road from Fort Defiance to the Colorado River. Letter from the Secretary of War Transmitting the Report of the Superintendent of the Wagon Road from Fort Defiance to the Colorado River

      [Washington] 1858 - 35th Congress, 1st Session. House of Representatives Ex. Doc. No. 124. 87 pp, with large folding map in rear pocket covering. Modern blue buckram with gilt title on spine. Old archival tape repair to final two leaves at gutter; map has one old tape repair and several small splits at the intersections. In 1857, Beale-an accomplished frontiersman who had traversed the country from coast to coast six times bearing dispatches in the late 1840s-accepted a commission to survey a wagon road and establish a trade route along the 35th parallel from Fort Smith, Arkansas to Los Angeles. The expedition is noted in part for Beale's successful use of camels as pack animals. The wagon road began at Fort Smith and continued through the New Mexico Territory and Arizona Territory to Fort Defiance, before crossing the Colorado River near present-day Needles, California. The Mojave Road continued west from where Beale's Wagon Road met the Colorado River, through the Mojave Desert to Southern California. The part of the expedition described here (from Fort Defiance in northeast Arizona to the California border, primarily presented in the form of Beale's diary) was conducted in the second half of 1857. Beale's letter of transmittal is enthusiastic with regard to climate, noting that there was no sickness at all in camp ("the medicine chest proved only an incumbrance") and that "even in midwinter, and on the most elevated portions of the road, not a tent was spread, the abundant fuel rendering them unnecessary for warmth and comfort." However, since "this will inevitably become the great emigrant road to California," he recommends the construction of several dams and bridges to make travel easier, as well as the establishment of a military post on the Colorado. This he says is "an indispensable necessity for the emigrant over this road; for although the Indians.are agricultural and consequently peaceable, they are very numerous.The temptation of scattered emigrant parties with their families, and the confusion of inexperienced teamsters, rafting so wide and rapid a river with their wagons and families, would offer too strong a temptation for the Indians to withstand."

        An Account of the Mutinies in Oudh,

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1858. and of the Siege of the Lucknow Residency; with some observations on the condition of the province of Oudh, and on the causes of the Mutiny of the Bengal Army. Octavo (220 x 138 mm). Attractive later 19th-century tan half calf tooled with single fillets and floral cornerpieces gilt, and floral, vine-leaf and ropework rolls in blind, lettered section of original spine laid down, marbled sides, yellow surface-paper endpapers. Tinted lithographic frontispiece and 3 similar plates including after Vincent Eyre, folding map and 3 folding plans, one full-page plan. Inscribed "The Governesses' Home, from N. W. Ford 1890" Complete with the errata slip. Spine relined with new endbands, lettering refurbished, occasional mild soiling to lower margins, short closed tear to bottom edge sig. I6 not affecting text. A very good copy. A handsome copy of the second edition, just two months after the first, and with the addition of two appendices, "a narrative given by one of the Ladies who escaped from Sultanpoor", and Vincent Eyre's account of the relief of Arrah. "Gubbins' reminiscences of the Indian mutiny in Oudh and the Siege of Lucknow offer cogent insights into the background of the mutiny, the consequent defence of Lucknow, and his guide of intelligence operations. As the financial commissioner of Oudh, Gubbins' extensive dealings with the native population led him to assert that fundamental threats to Indian religion and caste formed the basis of the mutiny which [were] subsequently sparked by the appearance of the greased cartridge. With the inception of the Siege of Lucknow, Gubbins commanded an important segment of the Residency's perimeter and took charge of intelligence operations. His comments on the conduct of the siege are uncommonly candid while also being sympathetic to the terrible loss of life" (Riddick).

        ALS ("Hermann Kopp"). Gießen, 18. VIII. 1858.

      1858. 4to. 1 S. To an unidentified colleage, thanking him for sending his latest work and noting several printing errors in it: "On the eve of my departure for a week of rest and relaxation in Norway, I want to dash off this note to thank you for having been so kind to mail your supplement V, so important to me. You can tell just how carefully I perused it when I point out to you that where you write about pyrophyllite it should read trimetric rather than triclinic, and about nigite, where it should be SiO3 instead of SO3. - Wöhler, who is here with me, asks me to send you his greetings, and I commend myself to your continued benevolence [...]". The reference is to Friedrich Wöhler, another important German chemist. - Kopp, who worked with Justus von Liebig, studied the connections between the physical properties and the chemical nature of substances. He also worked on physical constants and wrote on the history of chemistry. - In very good condition.

"Ein stolzer Rechenschaftsbericht, der dennoch von der Nachwelt, in Hinblick darauf, was alles nur Idee blieb und keine Wirklichkeit wurde, nicht ohne Bedauern betrachtet werden kann" (Rave, K. F. Schinkel S. 6ff.). - Auf schwerem nahezu fleckenfreiem Bütten gedruckte Ausgabe, wahrscheinlich eine Vorzugsausgabe. Die Normalausgabe nimmt vom Umfang her in etwa ein Drittel des Buchblocks unserer Luxusausgabe ein.

Die 174 Tafeln bilden insgesamt 70 Bauten (Entwürfe) und Denkmäler ab, davon 33 ausgeführte Objekte, 25 nicht ausgeführte Entwürfe und 14 Musterentwürfe. Auf großformatigen Blättern werden in reizvollen Umrißstichen mit landschaftlichen und figürlichen Staffagen u.a. auch die wichtigen Berliner Bauwerke wie das Museum, das Schauspielhaus, die Neue Wache, die neue Anlage der Wilhelmstraße mit Passage und das Schlößchen Tegel gezeigt sowie das laut Rave wichtigste und bemerkenswerteste Bauwerk, die Bauschule. Komplett!
