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]

HUTCHINSON, George.
London: Smith, Elder & Co., 1859. London: Smith, Elder & Co.,, 1859. Compiled from authentic records. Octavo. Original red cloth, titles and floral design to spine in gilt, elaborate frame in gilt with black rule frame around central floral motif in gilt to front cover, blocked in blind to rear cover, yellow coated endpapers, edges gilt. Folding map frontispiece. Binding furbished (extremities of spines and corners consolidated, lettering retouched). Pencil annotation to foot of p. 1. A touch of rubbing to extremities, very occasional faint foxing; a very good copy in the exceptionally bright cloth. First edition of this government sanctioned account of the Indian Rebellion of 1857-8 against the rule of the British East India Company. Hutchinson was the Military Secretary to the Chief Commissioner of Oude, Sir Robert Montgomery. Hutchinson was directed to write this work by Montgomery, "with the object of affording, to all, who may have lost friends or relations in Oude, the most accurate and complete information that the Local Government has been able to collect" (Sorksy, p. 107). The work consequently consists mainly of "lengthy quotations from reports of British officials in the various localities" (Ladendorf, p. 22). An edition was printed in the same year in Calcutta by the Military Orphan Press, with no stated precedence. This work is uncommon, with just eight copies traced institutionally in the UK.

Samuel Smiles
Not seen at auction since 1983. Samuel Smiles (23 December 1812 - 16 April 1904), was a Scottish author and reformer. The origins of this work, Smiles' most famous, lay in a speech he gave in March 1845 in response to a request by a Mutual Improvement Society, published as The Education of the Working Classes. Routledge rejected publishing Self-Help in 1855. Twenty years later Smiles was seated next to George Routledge at a dinner, and he said to him: "And when, Dr. Smiles, are we to have the honour of publishing one of your books?" Smiles replied that Mr. Routledge had had the honour of rejecting Self-Help. Although John Murray was willing to publish Self-Help on a half-profits system, Smiles rejected this as he did not want the book to lose its anecdotes. In 1859 he published the book at his own expense and risk, retaining the copyright and paying John Murray ten per cent. commission. It sold 20,000 copies within one year of its publication. Bound by Edmonds and Remnants of London, with a binder's label to rear pastedown. Publisher's catalogue to rear. CONDITION In a cloth-covered binding. Externally, worn with bumping to extremities. Splitting to joints and loss to cloth at head and tail of spine. Internally, generally firmly bound. Generally bright but with foxing throughout, though heavy only to first and last few pages. Overall Condition: Fair. [Attributes: First Edition]

Captain McClintock
London: John Murray, 1859. Complete with four maps and fifteen plates. With folding map in a pocket to the rear in uncommonly good condition. John Franklin was an English Navy officer and Arctic Explorer who disappeared on his last expedition attempting to chart and navigate the Northwest Passage in the Canadian Arctic. The tragic end and mysterious circumstances surrounding this final expedition led to Franklin's legendary and heroic status and the wrecks of his final voyage, discovered between 2014 and 2016 are designated National Historic Sites. In 1857 Sir Francis Leopold McClintock took command of the ship The Fox on behalf of Lady Franklin, John Franklin's widow, and search for an answer as to the fate of John Franklin. During this journey, McClintock discovered from the inuit population that Franklin's ship had been crushed in the ice and wrecked, and that though the crew had initially survived, they had later starved to death. McClintock's expedition was also responsible for finding Franklin's last written record, and skeletal remains in European clothing. McClintock was knighted for these discoveries and he and the rest of his expedition received and shared a £5000 reward. CONDITION In a blue cloth binding.

"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.

John LEMOINE* écrit à propos d’Édouard BERTIN au moment ou il prend la direction du Journal des Débats : « il eut une certaine hésitation [ ] et une certaine peine à assumer des fonctions et à quitter ses habitudes indépendantes d’artiste. Cependant il entra tout naturellement dans son nouveau rôle. Comme tous les siens, il avait toujours vécu dans l’atmosphère de la politique ; il l’avait apprise dans l’air qu’il respirait, dans la société qu’il voyait. Il la savait avant d’avoir à la pratiquer. Il possédait une instruction très étendue. Étant d’habitudes assez sédentaires, il lisait énormément ; il était au courant de tout, et rien ne lui était étranger ». *John Lemoine in : Le Livre du centenaire du Journal des Débats 1789-1889, p. 56, cité par Henri Avenel in : Histoire de la presse française depuis 1789 jusqu’à nos jours, Paris, Ernest Flammarion, Éditeur, 1900, chapitre IX, p. 468.

Yokohama: 1859. Ukiyo-e woodblock print ca. 19,5x26,5 cm. With a printed title in the right upper corner and dense printed text on the upper margin. Paper slightly age toned, four small worm holes on the right margin, but overall a very good copy of this very rare print. Rare early Japanese depiction of Count Nikolay Muravyov-Amursky (1809-1881), the General Governor of Russian Siberia and the Far East, taken during his official visit to Edo in August 1859. The purpose of the visit was to negotiate the Russian-Japanese state border and to legally secure the ownership of Sakhalin Island to Russia. Muravyov-Amursky arrived at Yokohama on August 5 with a squadron of eight Russian naval ships and received Japanese plenipotentiaries aboard his flagship 'Askold'. Two days later he went ashore ''with a large retinue, including an honor guard of three hundred sailors and a drum and bugle corps'' (Lensen, G. Russians in Japan, 1858-1859). The negotiations started in Edo on August 12, but ended without a result, the Japanese side referring to the Treaty of Shimoda (1855) which mentioned common use of Sakhalin Island. Muravyov-Amursky and Russian naval squadron left Yokohama on August 24, 1859 and proceeded to Hakodate and thence to Nikolayevsk. During the delegation's stay in Edo three Russian sailors were attacked by Japanese in Yokohama and cut with swords, only one surviving. This was one of the first attacks on foreigners after the opening of Japan to the outside world. The victims were buried on the specially designed cemetery for the foreigners in Yokohama.

1859. Ca. 1859. Ca. 54x75 cm. Black ink on rice paper, hand coloured in yellow, red, black, and grey. Extensive text in Japanese on the right and left margins. Fold marks, otherwise a very good plan. Interesting early detailed Japanese plan of the first Russian settlement on Sakhalin Island - Fort Muravyovsky, founded by a Russian navigator and explorer Gennady Nevelskoy on 21 September O.S./ 3 October N.S. 1853. The fort was erected on the site of the Ainu village Kushinkotan in southern Sakhalin (according to the Russian sources, the name of the village was Tomari Aniva), on the shore of the Salmon Inlet of the Aniva Bay. The first commander of the fort was Russian military officer Nikolay Busse (1828-66). In May 1854 the fort was relocated to the Emperor's Harbour, due to the beginning of military actions against Russia by Britain and France during the Crimean War. The fort was rebuilt in 1869, under the name of Korsakovsky, and quickly became the centre of the Sakhalin penal colony of the Russian penitentiary system. It was handed over to the Japanese government in 1905 after Russia's defeat in the Russo-Japanese War, and was returned to Soviet Union in August 1945, after World War II. Renamed Korsakov in 1946, it is now an important administrative centre of Russia's Sakhalin Oblast. The plan states that it was copied in October 1859 from the original sheet drawn in September 1853 after the construction of the Russian fort. The plan depicts a rectangular fort with two watch towers (each with a guard on top, one is mounted with a flag), tall fence and several buildings, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Commonplace Book] Louise A. Woods
New Bedford, CT, 1859. Comprised of 18 handwritten pages, three hand-drawn illustrations, and 12 pages of pasted in ephemera. Red leather with gilt to spine and boards; some scuffing and shelfwear to extremities, front boards slightly bowed. Text block partially detached from spine but holding, causing some looseness of early signatures. A fascinating collection of quoted poetry, friendship messages, and contemporary news stories that give a glimpse into one girl's fascination with adventure. A gift inscription on the book's first page gives insight into who Louise Woods was: an adventurous spirit, desirous of travel and new experiences. "In this changing world we are often obliged to separate from those who are fondly cherished.it is pleasing to peruse the sentiments penned by their own hand and accompanied by their own signature. Often do such incentives give wings to the imagination." On the pages immediately following, we see that the book giver knew the recipient well, for she pastes in an article on the possible discovery of mermaids at sea, and on the debate regarding anatomical dissection of newly discovered species. Other pasted in articles include coverage of tornadoes, expeditions and voyages to South America, and whaling. Handwritten contributions to the book range from religious sentiments, to personal letters about time spent together in friendship, to drawings of ships at sea. Across these entries there is a theme of inevitable separation and hopes of friends remembering and being true to each other's memories regardless of time and space.

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]

n.p., n.d. but Japan: n.p., n.d. [but Japan: 1859. An interesting and instructive look at how the Japanese learned English in the generation following Admiral Perry's opening of Japan. 2 volumes in 1, oblong 8vo, approx. 198 french-fold pages sewn in the Japanese manner in contemporary and almost certainly original brown paper wrappers; minor working and wear, but in all a very good and striking example of a Japanese student's workbook for the attainment of English. The book has apparently been copied from American primers published by A. S. Barnes in New York in 1857, and Sargent's School Primer, Boston, 1859; both contain a variety of reading and spelling lessons "especially adapted to the capacity and taste of young children. It is hoped that it will proved [sic] valuable introduction to the national series of school readers prepared by Richard G. Parker." Both Parker's and Sargent's primers were available in bi-lingual editions in the Japanese market. Might this be the manuscript from which a printer might have used to publish the Japanese editions? Throughout, the English text, which has been carefully written in ink, is often translated interlinearly in red ink with Japanese characters creating an attractive visual appearance on the page. Included are 3 pages of alphabets, simple sentences, often in rhyme ("A cart for me / to ride and see / A ship at sea / with you and me." An interesting and instructive look at how the Japanese learned English in the generation following Admiral Perry's opening of Japan.

Samuel Smiles
Not seen at auction since 1983. Samuel Smiles (23 December 1812 - 16 April 1904), was a Scottish author and reformer. The origins of this work, Smiles' most famous, lay in a speech he gave in March 1845 in response to a request by a Mutual Improvement Society, published as The Education of the Working Classes. Routledge rejected publishing Self-Help in 1855. Twenty years later Smiles was seated next to George Routledge at a dinner, and he said to him: "And when, Dr. Smiles, are we to have the honour of publishing one of your books?" Smiles replied that Mr. Routledge had had the honour of rejecting Self-Help. Although John Murray was willing to publish Self-Help on a half-profits system, Smiles rejected this as he did not want the book to lose its anecdotes. In 1859 he published the book at his own expense and risk, retaining the copyright and paying John Murray ten per cent. commission. It sold 20,000 copies within one year of its publication. Bound by Edmonds and Remnants of London, with a binder's label to rear pastedown. Publisher's catalogue to rear. CONDITION In a cloth-covered binding. Externally, worn with bumping to extremities. Splitting to joints and loss to cloth at head and tail of spine. Internally, generally firmly bound. Generally bright but with foxing throughout, though heavy only to first and last few pages.

(Moveable)
London: Dean & Son, 11 Ludgate Hill, 1859. Poor. 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. Stiff card wraps. Item #18739.

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. If this is the case, I will email you and let you know when the item will ship. This item will be shipped with insurance and with a signature required upon delivery. If you have specific requirements with respect to shipping, please let me know upon or prior to purchase. Thanks for looking and good luck! PHOTOS: Please carefully review all photos provided.

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]

WILLIAMS, Rev. E. A.
London: Richard Bentley, 1859. London: Richard Bentley,, 1859. With an Account of the Operations of the Naval Brigade in India. Octavo. Original deep purple cloth, gilt lettering and decoration to spine, elaborate panelling in blind to boards. Frontispiece. Binding furbished, extremities of spines and corners consolidated, grain of spine smoothed, lettering retouched. A very good copy. First edition. Williams was the chaplain onboard HMS Pearl, whose crew were called upon to help put down the Indian Mutiny. After sailing to South America, Honolulu and the Sandwich Islands, the ship's company hears news of the uprising while docked in Hong Kong. Along with HMS Shannon, the ship was sent to Calcutta. Williams gives his first-hand description of what he believes to be "the only example in English history of officers and seamen of the Royal Navy leaving their ships, and taking their guns seven or eight miles into the interior of a great continent" (p. v). They served with such distinction in Goruckpure that the governor-general, Lord Canning, refused to let them return to their ship "without the satisfaction of seeing peace restored to the rich districts which they [had] protected" (p. 297).
