        Totius latinitatis lexicon opera et studio Aegidii FORCELLINI lucubratum et in hac editione post tertiam auctam et emendatam a Josepho FURLANETTO alumno seminarii Patavini novo ordine digestum amplissime auctum atque emendatum cura et studio Vincentii DE VIT. Totius Latinitatis Onomasticon.

      Prati, Typis Aldinianis 1859 - 1867.. Bände VII - X (4 Bände in 2) 4 Bde. [Zum Onomasticon: alles erschienene] 779, 826, 752, 836 S. 31 cm, Original-Halblederbände mit blindgeprägtem vergoldetem Rückentitel, Bibliotheksexemplare mit Rückenschild und Stempeln. marmorierter Schnitt, nur minimal berieben, schöne Exemplare.. BEILIEGEND: Die Bände III - VI des Lexikons Prato 1858-75 (Aldina), hg. Vincentius De Vit, in gleicher Ausstattung und Erhaltung, so dass nur die Bände I,II der umfassenden 10-bändigen Ausgabe fehlen. Egidio (oder Aegidius) Forcellini, am 26. August 1688 in Feltre bei Treviso als Sohn armer Eltern geboren, konnte erst 1704 das Seminar in Padua besuchen, wo sein Lehrer, Facciolati, seine Begabung erkannte und ihn an der Überarbeitung des Wörterbuchs von Calepinus mitarbeiten ließ. Dabei reifte in Forcellini der Plan, selbst ein großes lateinisches Wörterbuch zu erarbeiten. Von 1718 bis zu seinem Tod am 4. April 1768 (mit einer Unterbrechung von sieben Jahren 1724-31) las er den gesamten Bestand der überlieferten lateinischen Texte und Inschriften. Erst vier Jahre nach seinem Tod konnte das vierbändige Werk erscheinen, auf dem die meisten Wörterbücher des 19. Jahrhunderts basieren. Die vier Bände des Onomasticons umfassen allerdings durch den Tod des Verfassers nur die Buchstaben A-O. Es ist in der vorliegende Ausgabe zum ersten Mal erschienen. Siehe auch: Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani (DBI). Band 48. / Geschichte der Altertumswissenschaften. Biographisches Lexikon (= Der Neue Pauly. Supplemente Bd. 6). Metzler, Stuttgart u. a. 2012, Sp. 408-410. Der Herausgeber des Onomasticon Vincenzo De Vit (1811-1892) war Rosminianer-Pater. Auf diesem zuverlässigen Werk, das auch die Inschriften berücksichtigt, basieren die meisten Wörterbücher des 19. Jahrhunderts. Es führt auch die italienischen und griechischen Entsprechungen an. In seinem Vorwort schreibt Forcellini nicht ohne Stolz: "Hanc legem mihi imposui, ut nullum admodum afferrem testimonium, quod non prius ipse meis oculis in ipso auctore vidissem."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      München, 21. XI. 1859.. 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Ihr mineralogisches Lexikon hatte ich schon früher für das Conservatorium angeschafft, es ist eine sehr fleißige Arbeit[,] welche den mineralogischen Reichthum Oesterreichs nun leicht überschauen läßt. Es ist lobenswerth, daß Sie die andere Nomenklatur dabei gebraucht haben; wenn Viele mithelfen, kommt endlich doch eine Vereinigung über die Namen zu Stande, deren wir so lange entbehrt haben [...]". - Kobell war Professor für Mineralogie an der Universität München, veröffentlichte zahlreiche Arbeiten auf dem Gebiet der Mineralogie und verkehrte im Kreise König Ludwigs I. und Maximilians II. Joseph, wo er auch als Gelegenheitsdichter in bayerischer Mundart hervortrat. Gemeinsam mit seinem Kollegen Carl August von Steinheil nahm er 1839 die ersten Daguerreotypien in Deutschland auf, indem sie mit einer von Steinheil entwickelten Kamera die Glyptothek und die Türme der Frauenkirche fotografierten. Seit 1847 schrieb Kobell Volksstücke und Singspiele, die am Münchener Hoftheater aufgeführt wurden, und Dialekterzählungen wie "Die G'schicht von' Brandner-Kasper" (1871), die als sein bekanntestes Werk gilt; auch wurde er 1847 Mitarbeiter der "Fliegenden Blätter". Ein Wismut-Antimon-Bleierz wurde nach ihm Kobellit genannt. Seine Tochter war die Schriftstellerin Louise Eisenhart (1827-1901).

Bei der hier vorliegendem Ausgabe des GESAMTWERKS handelt es sich um eine Erstausgabe/Originalausgabe. Diese ist wohl in einer viel zu geringen Stückzahl gedruckt worden und ungemein selten. Speziell durch das regelmäßige Fehlen der Bde. I-III und VI, von denen wohl noch weniger gedruckt wurden als von den übrigen Bänden, sind komplette Reihen faktisch unauffindbar. In dieser Vollständigkeit und diesem Zustand ist das Werk daher sehr selten und kostbar! Desweiteren befindet sich in jedem einzelnen Band ein seltenes Ex-libris (Vermutlich ein Ritterorden) des Sir James Ramsay Gibson Maitland Bart (Arms of Sir James Ramsay Gibson Maitland Bart)!! Die Bände selbst stammen aus einer teilaufgelösten wissenschaftlichen Bibliothek und tragen die entsprechenden Kennzeichnungen (Rückenschild, Instituts-Stempel...). Schnitt und Einband sind etwas staubschmutzig; Der Zustand ist ansonsten dem Alter entsprechend gut; KOMPLETTPREIS für 8 Bände; bei Versand ins Ausland erfragen Sie bitte zuerst die Versandkosten!! in ENGLISCHER Sprache!!!

        Dean & Son's Moveable Book of The Royal Punch & Judy as Played Before the Queen at Windsor Castle & The Crystal Palace

      London: Dean & Son, 11 Ludgate Hill, 1859 London: Dean & Son, 11 Ludgate Hill, 1859. Poor. Stiff card wraps. 4to. Bound in thin card with covers printed in color. 16 pp., printed on one side only, with eight full page hand-colored illustrations showing Punch and Judy, et al., in the upper portion with text and drummer below. Each plate has moveable parts operated by a lever at the foot which operates the movement in the upper window; in addition 3 of the drummers move when the tabs are activated. This is a very good copy of a truly rare item. There is general soil from use; several tabs have been strengthened or replaced, but all of the moveable scenes are operative. Montanaro, p. 69. The dating of this item is problematic, but likely about 1859. Montanaro suggests a date of 1860, but the Cotsen copy in the Diana Rexford Tillson collection has an inscription dated March, 1859. It is probably safe to ascribe a date of 1858 or early 1859, then. Dean and Son was the first publisher to produce movable books on a large scale. In the late 1850's, the firm can be credited with inventing another first: the use of a mechanism that moved or was animated by pulling a tab. Housed in a custom made protective portfolio.

With an Autograph Letter, signed, hand-written in ink in a very neat hand by Gerlach, signed by himself and dated March 2, 1860, addressed to the Marechal. It comprises a large leaf of paper folded into a four-page document (last page blank), with 47 lines of text, date, and signature. "I request Your Excellency to be willing to accept this copy of the Military annals of the Dutch East-Indies," Gerlach opens his letter, written in French. Expressing his appreciation to Randon's military achievements, he begs that the book will be presented to His Majesty the Emperor of the French, continuing, "Voila monsieur le Marechal ce qui me porte a vous offrir ce travail et a vous prier d'etre mon interprete aupres de l'Auguste chef du peuple francais pour que Sa Majeste daigne accepter un exemplaire de mon livre." The letter, in exceptionally fine condition though a bit foxed, is preserved in pH-balanced, acid-free archival paper. Jacques Louis Cesar Alexandre, Marechal Comte Randon, born 25 March, 1795 in Grenoble, died 16 January, 1871 in Geneva. A French general and statesman, Marshal of France during the Second Empire. Began his military career at an early age. In 1838 he was appointed Commander of the African Jagers, and fought for ten years against the Arabs, becoming in 1847 a Lieutenant General. In 1851 he became Governor-General of Algeria, a position he held until 1858. On 18 March, 1856 he became Marshal of France. From 1859 to 1867 he served as Minister of War. Retired from public life in 1870, and died a year later. The author, Abraham Jean Arnaud Gerlach, was born in 1871 in Groningen. He received his education at the Koninklijke Militaire Academie, graduating as Lieutenant of the Artillery. As Colonel he later had a long teaching career at the same academy, and contributed regularly to military studies and publications. He translated his "Fastes militaires des Indes..." into Dutch, and published it in Zalt-Bommel and Paris in 1874-75 as the three-volume set "Neerlands heldenfeiten in Oost-Indie". He died in 1906. The importance of this work is remarkable: OCLC lists no less than 20 major North American libraries who keep a copy, including Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Washington, Princeton, and Columbia university libraries, as well as NYPL. A rare copy with fine provenance. [Descriptive text Copyright © Librarium, The Hague].

        The Travels and Surprising Adventures of Baron Munchhausen. Illustrated by Alfred Crowquill.

      London. Trübner and Co. 1859.. 19 x 13 cm. XII, 194 p. Original Cloth with rich gilt back and rich gilt decoration on both cover with gilt edges. Library label on spine of the book. Very nice Binding.. Forrester, Alfred Henry, artist, best known under the name of Alfred Crowquill (1804-1872), younger brother of Charles Robert Forrester, was born in London on 10 Sept. 1804, and educated at a private school in Islington. Although connected with his brother in business for many years, he was never a sworn notary, and in 1839 took the earliest opportunity of retiring from his connection with the city. He next applied himself to the study of drawing and modelling, as well as to wood and steel engraving. The two brothers were always on the most intimate and friendly terms, and the elder's novel, "Castle Baynard ", published in 1824, bore the following inscription, "To Alfred, this little volume is dedicated by his affectionate brother, the author". A. H. Forrester furnished the illustrations to his brother's "Absurdities " in 1827, and to his contributions to Bentley's Miscellany " in 1840-1, when the pseudonym of Alfred Crowquill was conjointly used by the writer and the artist. The best of Forrester's illustrative work, mostly designs on wood, were executed for Bentley, and afterwards reappeared in the "Phantasmagoria of Fun". He was also the writer of burlesques, drew pantomimic extravaganzas for the pictorial papers, and exhibited pen-and-ink sketches in the miniature room of the Royal Academy in 1845 and 1846.; - With nine nice coloured Wood Engravings and one Portrait as Frontispiece. - Paper lightly bronzy, in partly lightly blotchy, Engravings clean, Coverhinge partially fractured. Very nice copy.

      . 1859/60 nahm Themistokles von Eckenbrecher Unterricht beim Potsdamer Hofmaler Carl Gustav Wegener. Von 1861-67 lebte die Familie in Düsseldorf, wo der Sohn von 1861 bis 1863 Privatschüler bei Oswald Achenbach wurde und bald zu einem seiner Lieblingsschüler avancierte. Seinem Lehrer folgt er in der Brillanz der Farbe, in den Lichteffekten und den glanzvollen Szenerien der Komposition seiner Gemälde, ohne jedoch den Reiz seiner Staffage zu erreichen. Der Maler bereiste ganz Europa, v.a. Norwegen und den Vorderen Orient. Von seinen Reisen brachte er stets neue Motive mit nach Hause. 1892 unternahm er eine Reise in die Kolonien und bereiste u.a. Afrika und die Philippinen. 1919, zwei Jahre vor seinem Tod, zog er von Berlin, wo er seit 1889 ansässig war, nach Goslar. In Goslar befindet sich auch das Grab von Eckenbrecher..

Der Maler bereiste ganz Europa, v.a. Norwegen und den Vorderen Orient. Von seinen Reisen brachte er stets neue Motive mit nach Hause. 1892 unternahm er eine Reise in die Kolonien und bereiste u.a. Afrika und die Philippinen. 1919, zwei Jahre vor seinem Tod, zog er von Berlin, wo er seit 1889 ansässig war, nach Goslar. In Goslar befindet sich auch das Grab von Eckenbrecher..

        Les mysteres du desert. Souvenirs de voyages en Asie et en Afrique.

      Paris, E. Dentu, 1859.. 2 vols. 12mo. XXXIV, (2), 492 pp. (4), 484 pp. With 2 folding maps. Contemp. marbled red half calf with giltstamped title to spine. Marbled endpapers.. First edition. - The French traveller L. du Couret (1812-67) is said to have made his first journey to the East in 1836, joining the Egyptian army in Syria and visiting Nubia, Senner, Kordofan, and Darfur. He states that he embraced Islam and made the pilgrimage to Mecca. He remains a dubious character, and some critics have even doubted his existence, attributing his works to the imagination of Alexandre Dumas pere, author of the "Three Musketeers", who at least contributed a preface to du Couret's 1854 "Voyage au Pays des Niam-Niams". - Ibrahim-Hilmy I, 6.

        Birds of the Boundary (ex: United States and Mexican Boundary Survey, under the order of Lieut. Col. W.H. Emory).

      1859. (Washington, Smithsonian Institution, 1859). 4to (280 x 225mm). pp. 32, (2), with 25 handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary half calf, spine with gilt lettering (foot of spine chipped). Wood 217: "... beautiful colored plates ..." The 25 finely handcoloured plates are accompanied by a list of 226 various bird-species, and an alphabetical index. These illustrations were prepared by the lithographic firm of J.T. Bowen and Company, of Philadelphia, the same firm that produced the octavo edition of Audubon's Birds of America. After the Treaty of Guadalupe, Hidalgo (1848), which ended the war with Mexico, it was necessary to establish a boundary acceptable to both Mexico and the United States. The "Mexican Boundary Survey" was the result and it provided the Americans with the first detailed descriptions of their newly acquired territory..

        Tage-Buch (Tagebuch) der Reise nach Indien vom 29. November 1894 bis 3. Mai 1895.

      . Handgeschriebenes Reisetagebuch von Hermann Credner. 8°, 227 S., Originalleder, Goldschnitt. Das der Verfasser Hauptmann Credner ist, ergibt sich aus dem Text. Major Hermann Credner, geboren am 28.10.1859 in Münster / 1877 Eintritt in den Militärdienst / 1892 Lehrer am Kadettenhaus in Karlsruhe / 1897 Hauptmann und Kompagniechef im Inf-Rgt. 137 / 1900/01 Teilnahme am Feldzug in China / 1907 Kommandeur des III. Seebataillons / 1909 Ausscheiden aus der Marine-Infanterie. Der Bericht teilt sich in sieben Kapitel auf: Von Carlsruhe nach Colombo / Colombo / Calcutta, Darjeeling, Benares, Lucknow / Agra, Gwalior, Dehli, Lahore, Umritsar, Peshawar, Indus-Fahrt, Rawal Pindi / Waziristan, Tochi-Thal / Multan, Quetta, Kurachee, Bombay / Rückfahrt Cairo. Beiliegend ein 5-seitiger Brief von General Konsul Freiherr von Gärtner-Griebenow vom 27.1.(18)95 aus Calcutta. Hermann Credner plante seine Reise mit Reisebüro Cook und war mit einem Empfehlungsschreiben des badischen Ministers von Brauer an den Generalkonsul Gärtner-Griebenow in Calcutta ausgestattet. Von diesem erhielt er weitere Empfehlungen an Mitglieder der englischen Kolonie in Indien. Auf seiner Reise trifft er z.B. Konsul Freudenberg in Colombo, Geheimrat Zirkel, die schwedische Gräfin Wachtmeister, Oberst Thuillier - Chef der indischen Landesaufnahme, Major Davidson - Direktor der Münze in Calcutta, Captain Batten - Deputy Assistant Adjutant, General Morton, General Lockhart, Oberst Dyce, Kapitän von der Groeben, Familie Denso aus Erfurt, die Töchter von Charles Kingsley und Generalkonsul Freiherr von Heyking. Hauptmann Credner beschreibt anschaulich zahlreiche Sehenswürdigkeiten und Bräuche der "Eingeborenen". Unter anderem die Totenverbrennung der Parsis (Parsen - Anhänger des Zoroaster) in Bombay. Neben diesen interessanten Schilderungen ist sicherlich seine Teilnahme an der ersten Expedition in das Tochi-Tal der Höhepunkt seiner Reise. Auf der Rückreise nach Karlsruhe besuchte er die Pyramiden in Ägypten und schildert seine Eindrücke. Nach meinen Recherchen ist der Verfasser am 28.10.1859 in Münster/Westfalen geboren, war seit 1892 Lehrer am Kadettenhaus in Karlsruhe, wurde 1900 zum 4. Ostasiatischen Inf.-Rgt. versetzt und verließ 1909 die Marine-Infanterie. Er war Träger des badischen Ordens Zähringer Löwe. Das Buch ist rechtefrei. Eine kleine Textpassage: Dem von Italien nach Indien Reisenden, stehen mehrere gute Dampferlinien zur Verfügung. Von Triest aus der Österreichische Lloyd, von Genua und Neapel aus der Norddeutsche Lloyd, der jedoch nur nach Colombo zu benutzen ist, von Neapel und Brindissi aus, die Peninsular- und Oriental-Kompagnie. Für mich kam nur diese letzte englische Linie in Betracht, da ich so schnell als möglich Indien erreichen wollte, mein Urlaub am 1. Dezember 1894 begann und am 2. die 'Khedive' von Neapel nach Calcutta ging, während mit allen anderen Linien ich erst 1 bis 2 Wochen später hätte fahren können. Am 29.11. vormittags verließ ich Karlsruhe; in einigen Stunden in Freiburg Aufenthalt um mich von meinen Angehörigen zu verabschieden, und fuhr dann direkt von Freiburg bis Neapel. Die Zollrevision in Basel vollzieht sich glatt, und im Schlafwagen passiere ich die Gotthardt Berge in tiefem Schlafe; um sechs Uhr morgens weckt mich der Schaffner, wir sind gleich in Chiasso, wo mir von neuem der Paß über alle Unbequemlichkeiten der Zollrevision hinweghilft. 30.11. Eine Stunde später bin ich in Mailand, wo ein kurzer Aufenthalt zur Erfrischung benutzt wird. Die Fahrt nach Genua bietet ein wundervolles Alpenpanorama von Novi an, bis die Bahn selbst in das Gebirge, den Appenin tritt, der in vielen Tunneln und schönen Blicken in das Thal überschritten wird. Sprache: deutsch.

        Clipper Ship Sailing Card. Wild Rover

      This 1859 clipper card presents an iconic “sail beats steam” image - an increasingly desperate illusion propagated by the clipper ship industry. A fleet horseman (representing a speedy clipper ship) outpaces and even lassos the driver of a lumbering coal wagon (symbolizing a coal-fired steamship). Alas, the voyage advertised here was anything but speedy. Four times the Wild Rover passed Cape Horn, only to be blown back and forced to try again. She finally arrived in San Francisco almost six months after leaving New York. This card measures 6 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches and is printed by Nesbitt & Co. of New York. Save for a minor spot of discoloration in the upper left margin, it is in fine condition.

Its success was immediate and then unequalled: twenty thousand copies were sold in the first year, fifty-five thousand by 1864 and two hundred and seventy thousand by the end of the century. It was translated into almost every foreign language, but the proof of its success which most delighted Smiles was the number of letters attesting to its usefulness which he received from artisans - the class to whom it was directed - all over the world."

        REMINISCENCES OF AULD LANG SYNE [manuscript title, including a chapter of adapted California Fiction entitled "WESTWARD HO"]

      "Camp Nusseerabad, India." 1859-1860.. [121]pp. of manuscript text, about 15,500 total words. Original three- quarter calf and marbled boards. Boards edgeworn and lightly rubbed. Internally quite clean, neat, and legible. Very good. An interesting unpublished manuscript, this is a novel in the form of an autobiography, purportedly written by an American-born soldier in the British Army stationed in India in the late 1850s and early 1860s. The author describes his youth and early adulthood, culminating with an account of his adventures hunting grizzlies in Gold Rush-era California. The chapter on Grizzly hunting in California, called "Westward Ho," is copied (with a few small adaptations) from an article that appeared in the November 1857 issue of HARPER'S NEW MONTHLY MAGAZINE, called "The Grizzly Bear of California." The remainder of the text develops several themes over the course of the work, including the author's strained relationship with his wealthy father, his youthful disillusionment with a career as a lawyer, his friendship with a charming rogue named "Twadle," and his unsuccessful pursuit of love. The work also gently lampoons the character of the idle rich. It is unknown whether these other portions of the manuscript are also adapted from other published works, or whether they are the product of the author's own imagination. Either way, this manuscript is a very interesting example of mid-19th- century imaginative fiction and literary adaptation, and worthy of further study. According to prefatory material, this text was written in 1859-60 by Douglas D. Lindsay, who identifies himself as a member of Company 7 of Her Majesty's 83rd Regiment, stationed in East India at "Camp Nusseerabad." On a preliminary page he writes that "these 'Reminiscences of Auld Lang Syne' were written and presented by the author to his friend and gossip, Thomas Smith of Her Majesty's 83rd Regiment and who, in times to come, as he glances over these pages, will recall to mind the writer and 'wish him well, wherever fate may have led him'; and he, in turn, will often think of his quondam friend, while far at sea or in the deep piney woods of his native land." At several instances in the text, Lindsay disrupts the narrative to offer asides to Smith, providing a sort of post-modern authorial commentary on the proceedings. In a letter at the end of the text, dated July 23, 1860, Lindsay promises Smith that he will write a second volume "in which I propose giving you a few more passages from my experience in America - North - West and South, intermixt with some jottings about the sea, slavers, smugglers, etc. etc." It is not known whether "Lindsay" ever wrote this second volume. In the prefatory chapter Lindsay gives a sketch of his early life, claiming to have been born "of a very ancient family who are said to be descended in right line from the Prodigal Son." He writes that he did not have a good relationship with his father, and most of the assistance in his life was given to him by his deceased mother's brother. Lindsay says he eventually went to "the law school of old Y..." [revealed later to be Yale], from which he graduated with a lofty idea of the law and jurisprudence. These beliefs were quickly deflated when he moved to the unnamed state's capitol city and set to work as a lawyer. Finding himself quickly in debt and unhappy, he quit the law and moved back home. The next chapter in the book is entitled "A Screw Loose" and begins with Lindsay arguing with his father and being kicked out of the house. He departs, leaving behind him most of his expensive wardrobe, and ventures out in search of a friend named Twadle: "A young literary gentleman who was continually occupying the handsomest apartments he could find which he invariably vacated after a month of luxury. He was of a sanguine temperament and I will do him the justice to say that he always intended at the time of taking his rooms to pay for them. But so many extraordinary and unforeseen circumstances intervened between the day of his induction and pay-day, that when that period arrived he regularly found himself in a state of unprecedented pecuniary depletion." Twadle was living in New York at the time, and he and Lindsay decide to have a meal at Delmonico's. Of course, they do not have enough money to pay the bill, but Lindsay is rescued by his ever-helpful uncle, who just happened to be dining there that evening. His uncle then takes Lindsay to his home, welcomes him as a part of the family, and gives him a job in his engineering firm. In the next chapter, titled "Love Struck by Lightening," Lindsay describes his landlady's attempts to introduce him to eligible young women, and his courtship with Sophia Walter, daughter of a former governor. The romance fails when Lindsay discovers that his love has false teeth, which horrifies him. The penultimate chapter (comprising forty- one pages of the manuscript), entitled "Westward Ho," is set in California during the Gold Rush era, and is largely copied or adapted from a HARPER'S article of November 1857 called "The Grizzly Bear of California." Large portions of the manuscript are copied verbatim from the published article, while in other places Lindsay makes adaptations or particularizes the story to himself. For example, he mentions a "Hindoo Bear" in one passage, and changes the name of the Grizzly hunter from "Colin Preston" in the published article to "Nathan Walker" in his manuscript. He also intersperses original passages which add to the story, among the copied text. The section begins with Lindsay and a friend leaving Manhattan aboard a steamer bound for Chagres, and then crossing the Isthmus of Panama. Lindsay then goes up the coast to Acapulco, where he "secured passage in a crazy old polacca rigged schooner which was bound direct to San Francisco." The schooner is wrecked off the California coast, with Lindsay as the only survivor. Next comes a long discussion of the California Grizzly, and the "coastal range" in which it dwells, followed by a recounting of Lindsay's providential escape from the shipwreck. He is rescued by a bear hunter called "Nathan Walker" ("Colin Preston" in the original HARPER'S story), a native of Arkansas, who is described at great length. The rest of the chapter is filled with tales of Walker's bear- hunting exploits, discussions of the nature of the Grizzly, and the recollection of bear hunts in which the author participated with Walker, often at great risk to his own life. In the final chapter (comprising twelve pages and called "The Man in the Drab Coat") Lindsay tells a story of meeting an old Yale classmate of his in the Russian River gold diggings. His friend, Robert, had been quite successful in the mines, saving some $5000, but was gravely ill and soon died. Lindsay promises him that he will collect all his money and deliver it to Robert's mother in the East. On his way home, Lindsay stops in New Orleans and loses all of his own money in the gambling halls, and leaves the city saddled with debt. Back in Troy, New York he considers drawing on his friend Robert's money, using it as a gambling stake to win back the money he lost in New Orleans. Late one night, cold and seemingly hallucinating, he is visited by a devilish figure, "the man in the drab coat," who so frightens Lindsay that he resolves to give all Robert's money to his family, as he had promised. An interesting work of adaptive and imaginative fiction, meriting further research.
