        AGENTS AND GENERAL LETTER BOOK. COMMENCING 19TH OCT. 1859 ENDING 31ST DECEMBER 1861. Mr. Webb Hayward Solicitor Rochester 19 October 1859.

      1859 - Lined copy letter book, with manuscript entries. [23] p. index (1 page blank) + 309 p. + [16] p. blank. [6] registered letter receipts tipped in. Bound in vellum, marbled boards and edges. Extremities worn, especially at top of spine. Ink titles. Clean interior in several legible copperplate hands. The outgoing letters of a busy Rochester solicitor, amounting to some 1,200 separate entries over a period of two years and ten weeks. In the 1878 directory, William Webb Hayward of 196 High Street, Rochester, was also Clerk of the Peace, and to the trustees of St. Bartholomew's Hospital and registrar of the county court, etc. The new letter book opens with the acrimonious dissolution of Esell and Hayward: 'Mr. Esell has excluded me from the offices and he has all the Books and Accounts' and 'has treated me in a very cruel manner depriving me of a position worth œ7,000 to me and putting his own relations in my place and refusing to return to me the œ4,000 I paid him when I went into partnership.' He was also pursuing the Postmaster General over a letter, misdirected 'to another party thereby doing me a serious injury and inducing the commencement of legal proceedings against me.' Hayward acts on behalf of the Commissioners of Paving, etc., Rochester and Strood and writes to Samuel Smiles (1812-1904, author of Self-Help and Lives of the Engineers), Secretary of the South Eastern Railway about water dripping from a bridge over Strood High Street. He also acts for a client, who is claiming damages from the London, Chatham and Dover Railway, as goods, sent from Chatham to Canterbury, arrived late and caused financial loss. Another failed delivery was the case of the 'fish missent' by Messrs. Pickford from London to Stroud in Gloucestershire (instead of Strood), for which loss the client claimed œ5.5.6. Mr Aveling was written to in December 1861, 'the men in charge of your engine having refused to pay the Toll [at Strood] yesterday', Hayward also observing that the weight of the locomotive was not 'legibly conspicuously affixed thereon,' (the toll depended on the weight). Thomas Aveling (1824-82), the pioneer of steam traction engines, had just established his main works in Strood, having developed his first self-moving engine in 1859. Hayward was involved in several maritime cases. In 1860, a ship named The Guard, belonging to Frederick Fussell of Rochester, coal merchant, ran aground at the mouth of the Tees, and was salvaged by a shipbuilder, inevitably resulting in a dispute over conflicting claims and costs. Inland waters close to home also claimed his attention. The brig Tanner of Whitby 'was with her cargo seriously injured.owing to the defective and improper Moorings in the River Medway.' Hayward acted for the owner against Rochester Corporation and the case became complicated when he discovered that the city had borrowed diving apparatus from the Royal Engineers to survey the moorings, 'notwithstanding Captn. Mann's denial I am in a position to prove that the request for the loan was made by the Water Bailiff's son to the Sapper who referred him to the Sergeant who referred him to the Officer who gave permission.' Hayward complained of Captain Mann's conduct to the War Office. He also communicated with the Secretary of State for War on another matter involving the Royal Engineers at Chatham. A local builder, Mr Alfred Stump of Brompton had been unable to obtain payment of his outstanding account for constructing their new Mess House. Captain Casey, R.E. of the Ordnance Survey office, Southampton, received a complaint from Hayward on behalf of a farmer of Smolledge, near Chatham, whose field of peas has been damaged by a survey team. Along with his corporate clients and the usual conveyancing (including the sale of a windmill at Cliff) and probate work, Hayward was concerned in breach of promise and bastardy matters and also took the cases of many smaller litigants: a woman injured by the 'furious' driving of a grocer's cart, a M

        ALS ("J. Ericsson").

      No place, 22. III. 1859.. 4to. 1 p.. To a gentleman: "My Dear Sir: The anticipated breaking of frank's main leer, through the runner, has come and came, as unfortunately must, in every engine doing any thing like maximum work. I am induced to ask what action Msrs. Clute have taken in the matter. You remember my letter of the 13th March, which I sent to you and in which I urged it as an imperative necessity for Msrs. Clute to put wrought levers on the cast rack shafts in every engine cast in the manner complained of? I hope Mrs. Clute, in the face of my letter, has not sent down a new batch of engines without doing what they expressed themselves willing to do. Should the matter have been neglected, then order them at once to send your wrought iron main levers as fast as they can make them and let Banks turn the rack and put the levers online." - In a lengthy postscript, he continues: "Frank's engine is being pushed at Delmatins (?) with all possible speed but quadruple work has been done to which was expected. The engine appears to have been kept at white heat for hours as the vessel in the supply picture was completely burnt out." - The Swedish-born engineer Ericsson made numerous changes to the steam engine. By 1859, Ericsson was working on war ships, and by 1862 he designed and built his famous ship, "The Monitor", inaugurating a new era in warfare by creating vessels capable of launching torpedoes. A superb, scientific letter.

In 1856 the Imperial Academy issued, at its own expense, Chwolson's first work, which established its author an an authority in the field of oriental research, the two-volume "Die Ssabier und der Ssabismus"; three years later Chwolson published the present "Über die Überreste der Altbabylonischen Literatur in arabischen Uebersetzungen" (also in Russian, in "The Russian Messenger", as "Novootkrytie Pamyatniki").

        Bigelow Papers, The

      , 1859. 1859. first edition. First EditionAlbert Cohn's CopyExtra-Illustrated With Three Hand Colored PlatesAnd With an ALS.[CRUIKSHANK, George, illustrator]. LOWELL, James Russell. The Bigelow Papers. Alluded to by John Bright in the House of Commons. With Additional Notes, an Enlarged Glossary, and an Illustration by George Cruikshank. London: John Camden Hotten, 1859. First Cruikshank-illustrated edition, the Albert M. Cohn copy extra-illustrated with three colored plates (including frontispiece) from the second edition, and with an ALs from the author. Octavo. xvi, 198, [2, adv.] pp. Frontispiece in two states, colored, and plain (as issued); and two hand-colored plates. Publisher's dark mauve blindstamped cloth with gilt-lettered spine. With the bookplate of Albert M. Cohn, Cruikshank's cataloguer, his library label with manuscript notes regarding the additions, and the bookplate of William Hartman Woodin. An exceptional and fine copy. Chemised and housed in a green cloth slipcase with dark green roan spine lettered in gilt.The two hand-colored plates from the second edition of 1861 inserted here - "The country here is swarmin' with the most alarming varmin" and "But glory is a kin o' thing I shant pursue no furder..." - were originally published as part of the Comic Almanack, as was the colored frontispiece, "Bird of Freedom."The undated (1859?) ALS reads:Elmwood, Saturday / Kindest regards to Mr. Akers / My dear Charles / I am going to club today, but I have to go in earlier than that, or else I should be glad to come. The 'Bigelow' has stood as still as Joshua's sun ever since, The truth was, I was too tired. I have no doubt he will move on tomorrow. Meanwhile always lovingly yours, JRL."There is more to be said for The Bigelow Papers. Lowell's motivation for writing the pieces was commendable; he wrote them to attack the Mexican War, which he abhorred for dividing American society and occasioning the spread of slavery to conquered territory. And Lowell created two other effective characters in the work to play off against Bigelow's simple honesty, one Birdofredum Sawin, who serves Lowell's purpose by ineffectively opposing Bigelow, and the Reverend Homer Wilbur, a silly pendant, who, with Sawin, serves as a foil to underscore Bigelow's down-home virtue" (Shuchard, American Poetry, p. 89).Cohn 516.

        KALADLIT OKALLUKTUALLIAIT...[LEGENDS FROM GREENLAND...]

      Noungme [Godthaab, Greenland: Printed at the Inspectorate Press by L. M?r], 1859-1863.. Noungme [Godthaab, Greenland: Printed at the Inspectorate Press by L. Møller], 1859-1863.. Four volumes. [8],136,[2]pp. plus eight lithographed plates of music and twelve woodcuts; [8],111pp. plus eighteen woodcuts (twelve handcolored or printed color) and two folding maps; [3-6],136,[1]pp. plus twelve (of fourteen) lithographs at the end; [6],123pp. plus three woodcut plates and eight additional woodcuts in the text. First volume with colored titlepage vignette. Modern three-quarter polished calf and marbled boards, ornate gilt spines, a.e.g. Internally bright and clean. Gilt ownership stamp on front pastedown of each volume. Near fine, and an attractive set. This series of volumes of collected folk tales of Greenland, printed on the first real press to operate there and illustrated with remarkable woodcuts prepared by a native Greenland artist, must rank among the rarest and most extraordinary exotic imprints. Although ephemeral pieces had been printed on a small hand press in Greenland as early as 1793, the first real press was brought there in 1857 by the enthusiastic Danish Crown Inspector for Southern Greenland, Hinrich Rink. Rink began his career as an administrator based at the Moravian mission at Godthaab, on the southwest coast of Greenland. He used the press to produce both official notices and literary works. Rink was determined to collect legends and folk tales of Greenland natives and publish them, an ambition achieved in these four volumes, published over a five-year span. All of the letterpress was printed in a small, unheated workshop next to Rink's house, mostly executed by Lars Møller. Rink collected oral tales from throughout Greenland, although mainly in the southern area he administered. The remarkable oral tradition of the Eskimo, polluted by few outside influences, stretched back to the early Middle Ages. Many of the stories, especially in the first volume, describe the clashes between the Norse and the Eskimo. Rink recognized that some of the tales existed in the realm of pure myth, but that others represented recollections, passed from one generation to the next, of events of many centuries earlier. In the preface to the third volume Rink sets out his theories on the tales, laying the foundation for scholarship on the Greenland Eskimo. All of the text is given in both Greenlandic and Danish. The most amazing aspect of these books are the illustrations. In the first two volumes these were supplied by an Eskimo named Aron of Kangeq, a sealer and walrus hunter who lived at the Moravian mission at the small trading station of Kangeq. Aron was stricken with tuberculosis (which was epidemic in Greenland in that era) and confined to bed. Having heard of his raw artistic talent, Rink supplied him with "paper, coloured pencils, and the necessary tools for woodcutting." Thirty of these, about half of them handcolored, appear in the first two volumes. Aron illustrated the myths. As Oldendow says: "With his fertile imagination Aron drew men in violent motion...he depicts the legendary world of the Greenlanders with insight and ability...He makes us understand the vastness, loneliness, and weirdness of the majestic Greenland landscape and evokes the soul of the country as the ancient Eskimos have known it...." Indeed, Aron created pictures of remarkable power, all the more extraordinary for the circumstances of their production. In the third volume Lars Møller, the printer, supplied a series of illustrations of Greenland life created on the first lithographic press in Greenland. This set is notable for containing two folding maps not regularly issued with the set, but published to be distributed separately. Both were prepared by S. Kleinschmidt and are lithographic maps showing the fjords around Gothaab, with accompanying letterpress text. These maps are extremely rare in their own right. Needless to say, Rink's volumes were produced in small editions, and the attrition of the Greenland climate could not have aided their survival. Today they are of the greatest rarity. An imprint and ethnographic document of stellar importance. Knud Oldendow, THE SPREAD OF PRINTING...GREENLAND (Amsterdam, 1969), see especially pp.39-44. SABIN 36978 (Vols. 1-3).
