Clerk Written Letter Signed, in German with translation to Eduard Heinrich the Telegraph Supervisor telling him that his holiday pass has been cancelled and informing him "on the part of the Royal Embassy that your home leave pass has been denied by the Royal Interior Office and that is as a result of the circulated order by the Minister of Interior and War from the 30th April of this year according to which, until further notice, passes for foreign countries, home leave passes and discharge certificates may not be granted for the military or the territorial forces conscripted Prussian subjects ...", 1 side folio, Royal Prussian Embassy, St Petersburg headed paper, 8th June Bismarck was made Ambassador to Russia in 1858. In 1862 Friedrich Wilhelm IV recalled him, to help when parliament refused to vote the money for the army. The King hesitated to make him a minister, as Bismarck demanded a free hand in foreign affairs. However, in September 1862, parliament threw out the Budget, the King felt he had no choice, and Bismarck was appointed Minister-President and Minister for Foreign Affairs. So began his long period in power.TranscriptionKöniglichPreuszische Gesandtschaftin St. Petersburgd.8tn Juni1859.27tn MaiUnter Remission Ihres Urlaubspasses werden Sie Seitens der Königlichen Gesandtschaft hierdurch benach-richtigt, daß Ihnen der Heimatsschein von der Königlichen Inneren Behörde verweigert worden ist und zwar in Folge der Zirculair-Verfügung des Herrn Minister des Inneren und des Krieges von 30tn April d.

R. J. Prickett
Book Title: THE REV. J.W. LOGUEN, AS SLAVE AND AS FREEMAN Author: J. W. Loguen (Jermain Wesley), 1814-1872. Jermain Wesley Loguen was born around 1814 in Davidson County, Tennessee, to an enslaved mother named Jane (who was later renamed Cherry) and her white master, David Logue. Originally named Jarm Logue, he later added the "n" to his last name to differentiate himself from his slave-master father and adopted the middle name "Wesley" to reflect his Wesleyan Methodist sympathies. When he was in his early twenties, Loguen escaped from slavery and fled to Canada. He eventually settled in New York state, enrolled in the abolitionist Oneida School in 1839, and later established a school in Utica, New York, for African American children. He moved to Syracuse, New York, in 1841, founded another school, and married Caroline Storum, with whom he had five children. Loguen was ordained by the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Zion Church in 1842 and became increasingly involved with the anti-slavery movement, working with other abolitionists, including Frederick Douglass, on the lecture circuit. Loguen publicly denounced the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law and swore to defy it. He even advertised himself as a prominent Underground Railroad conductor in an April 1855 issue of Frederick Douglass' Paper, writing "that the Underground Railroad was never doing a better business than at present. . . . I speak officially, as the agent and keeper of an Underground Railroad Depot." Loguen served as pastor of Zion Church in Binghamton, New York, in the early 1860s, and after the Civil War became act … [Click Below for Full Description]

William H Emory
Condition: Very Good. Washington, D. C.: Cornelius Wendell. Very Good. 1859. A complete set of three rebound volumes, actually two volumes in three, with all plates present as called for. Red stamped cloth boards with bright gilt imprint on spine, made to look like leather. Light wear on corners. Slightly faded marbled edges. Reports within volumes paginated separately. William H. Emory was appointed commissioner of the United States and Mexico Boundary Survey following John Russell Bartlett, who was MIA from the survey upon Emory's arrival to assume his appointment. Emory was left to scrap together an effective survey party and obtain an accurate survey of the border after previous errors had ceded the Mesilla Valley, important in constructing a trans-continental railroad, to Mexico. The Gadsden Purchase had corrected this, but also added new territory to be surveyed. In addition to helping to clear up the boundary controversy, Emory's accounts were important in noting that the deserts of the southwest were not an agrarian paradise, and his team assembled a wealth of natural history and anthropological observations. This report is also notable for the illustrations, with many plates of scenery, plants, animals, and in particular color plates of the native inhabitants and birds. Volume I contains the personal narratives, correspondence, meteorology, geology, ethnology, and paleontology. It has shadow toning and light soil on some pages, with shadowed offsetting from plates. The other volumes have light soil on some pages, with less toning. First part of Volume II is botany; … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mencken, in his The American Language, writes: "[It] was chiefly devoted to showing that most of the 465 terms it listed were English provincialisms or archaisms, but he also listed a few words and phrases picked up in Pennsylvania. Elwyn, under ball, offered one of the early descriptions of baseball, He called it bat and ball, said that it was played in his youth, and hazarded the guess that it might be 'an imperfect form of cricket,' though calling it, in the same breath, 'a Yankee invention'."

Charles Dickens
London: Very Good. A solid Binding with pages and plates much brighter than usually found. CHARLES DICKENS: A TALE OF TWO CITIES 1859 CHAPMAN & HALL FIRST EDITION / FIRST ISSUE The following is a wonderful opportunity. A Tale of Two Cities was Charles Dickens's most popular work and regarded as one of the greatest books to ever be published. It has not out printed the Bible, but it has printed too many copies to count. There are 14 lovely plates by H.K. Browne (Phiz) as this would be their last work together - and they were quite the team. First printings of the first edition are indeed rare! The binding is quite solid and in lovely condition. It has been appropriately bound in red and shows very well. The gilt spine is still very bright and prominent. The text and plates are almost completely free from foxing and far, far better than most copies offered for sale. Simply, it would grace any collector's bookcase. It has the rare first issue point of Pg. 213 being numbered as Pg. 113. It is missing the 'b' on the list of plates. This is being offered on eBay far below the actual value and no reasonable offer will be denied. Shipping, in a good box with tracking, is FREE to the US. Shipping to the UK, without tracking, is $60 as this is a heavy / high quality binding. This will probably not last long. I do have some other great and rare books offered on eBay including a very rare 1935 first edition of Mary Poppins Comes Back. The movie, Mary Poppins Returns was just in theaters.

GUILMARD, DÉSIRÉ.
Paris: Au Bureau Du Journal Le garde-Meuble, 1859. Small oblong 4to, publisher's red cloth rebacked with original spine laid down. Fine copy of a ravishing book with chromolithograph title page and 23 chromolithograph plates. Désiré Guilmard (1810-1885), the founder of the journal Le Garde-Meuble Ancien et Moderne, which specialized in ornament and furniture, was closely connected to the Parisian design community and an influential purveyor of taste in a fifty year period of economic growth and changing tastes.His various albums and books on design and interior decoration appear in OCLC, but there is only one listing of this book on garden furniture and rustic architecture - at the Musée Histoire Naturelle in Paris. The opening of formerly royal properties and the transformation of Paris with grand boulevards and parks brought tremendous interest in landscaping and horticulture not only for public parks but for domestic gardens. Suburban and country house gardens needed chairs and benches and, where people could afford it, picturesque architectural structures such as Guilmard's kiosks, bridges and small huts. Pretty decorative title page with border design of leaves and ornamental twisted twigs. Sixteen plates of rustic benches, chairs and tables of rough timber, rattan, and/or painted wood. Three plates of small bark cottages; two plates of highly decorated thatched- roof kiosks, all with elevations and plans; one plate of a bark bridge; and one plate of a lay-out of a small garden of flowers, turf , and trees to surround a rustic house.

"On Liberty" by John Stuart Mill. Published in 1859 by John W. Parker and Son in London. Second edition, as stated on the title page. The book measures approximately 7.75" x 5.25", and is 207 pages long, with an additional 8 pages of advertisements. The book is in good minus condition. Moderate wear and staining to the brown cloth boards. Tearing and chipping to the cloth on the spine. The book is a little cocked with an overbite. Underlining and notations in pen and pencil throughout the text. Previous owner's bookplate (Louis Blake Duff) on the front pastedown. Pen inscription on the front endpaper and preface. Ownership signatures penned on the title page. A key work by Mill, partially based on Utilitarian doctrine, remarkable for establishing philosophically the virtue of the liberty of the individual as an absolute good for the community as a whole, rather than simply as a relative virtue, in relation to tyranny and oppression. In large part, the modern liberal concept of democracy depends on the ethical theory expressed by Mill; much of what we now consider innate to our belief in democratic rule and the appropriate limits of the power of government over the individual was first articulated in these pages.

John Horton Slaughter
Texas, Kentucky: Important, Rare, Handwritten Letter by JOHN HORTON SLAUGHTER (aka TEXAS JOHN SLAUGHTER, SHERIFF SLAUGHTER, JOHN H. SLAUGHTER), written in 1859 when he was only 18 years old. Single Page Handwritten Letter, single sheet, light blue laid paper with a nickel size blind embossed emblem at the upper right corner, approximately 7.75 x 12 inches. GOOD condition, several folds where the letter was probably folded to fit into a small envelope (NO envelope is present), very small holes where a couple folds intersect, a few ink stains on the blank back side, otherwise solid with writing that is fully legible. Folded is how the letter was preserved and is its normal state. The letter was written to John H. Slaughter's 22 year old friend and trusted horse selling partner JOHN B. LINDSEY, of Frankfort, Kentucky. (The Lindsey / Lindsay family is an old and prominent Kentucky family, as are its relations.) The contents of the letter seem to indicate a familial relationship of some sort between the Slaughter and Lindsey family lines. This pre Civil War letter written at the age of 18 is by far the earliest letter of JOHN HORTON SLAUGHTER that I have seen. It gives a glimpse of his life and ambitions that have rarely, if ever, been recorded. The letter reads in great part: "(??) August 24, 1859. / Dear John / Yours of the 8th has been received and the draft for $500 which was very acceptable. You say you have not heard from me in a long time. I answered your other letter acknowledging the receipt of the other draft & your Aunt also wrote in it making a long letter. I hope yo … [Click Below for Full Description]

MISTRAL, Frédéric.
Avignon: J. Roumanille, 1859. Octavo (213 x 131 mm). 20th-century red half morocco, spine lettered in gilt, red marbled sides and endpapers, edges speckled brown. Ink ownership signature to half-title. Spine lightly faded with a few rub marks, tips with very minor wear, some light foxing. A very good copy. First edition, first printing (without the dedication to Lamartine and the note on pronunciation). Mistral's long narrative poem was his first great literary success, and is generally considered his masterpiece. Taking eight years in composition, the poem, written in the Provençal dialect, tells of a young couple's thwarted romance. Mistral (1830-1914) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1904, "in recognition of the fresh originality and true inspiration of his poetic production, which faithfully reflects the natural scenery and native spirit of his people, and, in addition, his significant work as a Provençal philologist".

This is an Extremely Rare and Very Old Original 1859 Copy of Memorial of the Revival in Plymouth Church. It is not likely that you often get the opportunity to purchase an original of this book. This book is considered to be a culturally and historically significant book, and has been recently reprinted with the help of another old original copy. This book shows considerable wear, including wear to the cover with part of the covering having pulled loose from the spine. Because the book is so old and rare, I have made no attempt to re-glue the cover back to the spine - this would be better left in the hands of someone experienced in restoring such books. There is discoloration and/or staining on the pages and there is some markings, mostly on the blank pages at the end of the book. I have included several photos to give you an idea of the book's condition. Since the book is sold as is, please look closely at the photos I have provided and if you have any questions or would like any additional photos, please let me know. I can usually ship your item within two business days, however for times when I am occasionally on travel, it may take a couple of extra days.

R. J. Prickett
Book Title: THE REV. J.W. LOGUEN, AS SLAVE AND AS FREEMAN Author: J. W. Loguen (Jermain Wesley), 1814-1872. Jermain Wesley Loguen was born around 1814 in Davidson County, Tennessee, to an enslaved mother named Jane (who was later renamed Cherry) and her white master, David Logue. Originally named Jarm Logue, he later added the "n" to his last name to differentiate himself from his slave-master father and adopted the middle name "Wesley" to reflect his Wesleyan Methodist sympathies. When he was in his early twenties, Loguen escaped from slavery and fled to Canada. He eventually settled in New York state, enrolled in the abolitionist Oneida School in 1839, and later established a school in Utica, New York, for African American children. He moved to Syracuse, New York, in 1841, founded another school, and married Caroline Storum, with whom he had five children. Loguen was ordained by the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Zion Church in 1842 and became increasingly involved with the anti-slavery movement, working with other abolitionists, including Frederick Douglass, on the lecture circuit. Loguen publicly denounced the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law and swore to defy it. He even advertised himself as a prominent Underground Railroad conductor in an April 1855 issue of Frederick Douglass' Paper, writing "that the Underground Railroad was never doing a better business than at present. . . . I speak officially, as the agent and keeper of an Underground Railroad Depot." Loguen served as pastor of Zion Church in Binghamton, New York, in the early 1860s, and after the Civil War became act … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Printed for Private Circulation [by Taylor and Greening], 1859. 1st edition (NCBEL III, 830 & 1083). PRESENTATION copy from the author, INSCRIBED at the top of the t.p., 'Edward Bradley / from the author" 15, [1 (blank)] pp. Binder's blanks at rear of volume. 8vo. 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Late 19th C. 3/4 blue morocco binding with marbled paper boards & eps. Elaborate gilt decorated spine. TEG. Modest binding wear at extremities. Bookplate. A handsome VG+ copy. Item #37179 The notorious quarrel between two of England's most popular authors began with Yates' critical review, in Town Talk, of Thackeray's English Humourists of the Eighteenth Century. Thackeray, as might be expected, was a bit affronted at what he viewed as a slanderous insult by this fellow member of the Garrick Club; believing much of Yates' information came from club meetings, he took his grievance to the club committee. The committee sided with Thackeray and instructed Yates to apologize; Yates refused & was forcibly barred from club premises, subsequently bringing charges against the club Secretary. Dickens, absent from London as this brouhaha was brewing, returned to find all in full force. He offered to mediate, though primarily siding with Yates, which Thackeray viewed as treachery. The ill feelings between the two did not abate for years, until shortly before Thackeray's death in 1863. Herein Yates recounts the history & evidence of the disagreement, with, not unexpectedly, a bias to his own case.
