?Panorama of Helsingfors and the Fortress of Sv?aborg?, lithograph made by Maclure, MacDonald & MacGregor after photographs by M.V. Wright, published in London c. 1860 by Edward Stanford. Coloured by a later hand. Size: approx. 25,5 x 68,5 cm.Wonderful rare view of Helsinki from the time that the Grand Duchy of Finland was (an autonomous) part of the Russian Empire (1809-1917).Russian Emperor Alexander I of Russia moved the Finnish capital from Turku to Helsinki in 1812 to reduce Swedish influence in Finland, and to bring the capital closer to Saint Petersburg. Following the Great Fire of Turku in 1827, the Royal Academy of Turku, which at the time was the country's only university, was also relocated to Helsinki and eventually became the modern University of Helsinki. The move consolidated the city's new role and helped set it on a path of continuous growth. The neoclassical architecture of the time (still visible in today?s downtown area), mostly planned by the German-born architect Carl Ludvig Engel, was to resemble Saint Petersburg.From left to right we see:? the university, the South Harbour (Etel?satama), National Library, Maison de la Societ?, Helsinki Cathedral, Statue of Emperor Alexander II of Russia, Houses of Parliament, The Bank, Imperial Palace, House of Nobility (Ritarihuone), House of the Guards (P??vartio), The Canal (Katajanokan kanava),? the mansion of General Otto Wilhelm Klinckowstr?m, the North Harbour with? the station of the Finnish ships of war, the Blekholm Islands (Valkosaari), the provincial prison and the barracks and arsenal, Lonna island, Gust … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hildburghausen und New-York, Bibliographisches Institut, 1857 ?, 1860. Erste (1.) Auflage. "Vollständiges Werk in 15 Bänden (A ? Z). Mit eingebunden sind 113 (v. 115) Stahlstich-Porträts ?der bedeutendsten Menschen aller Zeiten?. Schwarze Original-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln sowie goldgeprägter Biedermeier-Ornamentik; Buchdeckel mit mehrfarbigen Marmorbezügen und mit Lederecken; mehrfarbig marmorierter Buchschnitt; farbig illustrierte Vorsätze." Neuauflage von Meyers Konversations-Lexikon, die sich unmittelbar an den 52-bändigen ?Wunder-Meyer? anschloß und zur Urfassung einer langjährigen Lexikontradition des Bibliographischen Instituts werden sollte. War der Wundermeyer noch von Verlagsgründer Joseph Meyer konzipiert worden, so trug für die 15-bändige Neuauflage bereits Meyers einziger Sohn Herrmann Julius die Verantwortung, dessen Vorstellung von einem modernen Nachschlagewerk sich nicht unerheblich von derjenigen seines Vaters unterschied. War der Wunder-Meyer noch als universelles Bildungswerk geschaffen worden, das eine Bibliothek ersetzen konnte und auch eine erzieherische Wirkung im Sinne des politischen Liberalismus entfalten sollte, so handelte es sich bei der Neuauflage um ein sachlich-zweckorientierte Stichwort-Lexikon ohne besondere politisch-pädagogischen Implikationen. Eine gewisse liberale Grundausrichtung blieb gleichwohl erhalten. Die Ausgabe erschien bereits im fortschrittlichen Doppelspalten-Druck. Obwohl im Umfang gegenüber dem Wunder-Meyer (65.500 S.) erheblich reduziert, stellte diese erneuerte Erstauflage mit ihrem Gesamtumfang von 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOFFY, Alfred M. (fl. 1837-1864, lithographer and publisher). - William Draper BRINCKLÉ (1798-1862, editor)
Prepared and published by A. Hoffy, Philadelphia, 1860. (10 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches). Lithographic portrait frontispiece of Brincklé by Hoffy, 36 hand-coloured lithographed plates, heightened and finished with gum arabic, all by Hoffy. Publisher's purple cloth, upper cover stamped in gilt A fine copy of this beautifully-illustrated and "very rare" (Bennett) work. "The design of the present work is to direct attention of Horticulturalists. to our native fruits, and to give such a pomological description and colored drawing of them, as that they may be readily identified" (Editor's preface). True to his word, Brincklé gives detailed descriptions of each variety under various sub-headings: size of fruit, flavour, quality, synonyms, form, etc., and then adds a paragraph or so on the historic origins of the variety. Details of 36 varieties are given (16 pears, 7 apples, 4 peaches, 3 raspberries, 2 plums, and 1 each of apricots, grapes, cherry and chestnut) all first described and tested in North America. But the chief glory of this work are the spectacular plates "of a delicate and charming quaintness . [they] are almost good enough to eat" (McGrath). All are 'drawn from nature' and lithographed by Hoffy himself. This is the third work on American fruits to be published by Hoffy with his own hand-coloured lithographs. His earliest and best-known publication is his Orchardist's Companion (Philadelphia: 1841-43). He then collaborated with Brincklé, a Philadelphia doctor and pomological enthusiast, on the ill-fated The American Pomologist (Philadelphia: 1851), the stock of which, accord … [Click Below for Full Description]

Child, Lydia Maria
American Anti-Slavery Society, New York, 1860. Printed self-wrappers stitched at spine and measuring 4.5 x 7 inches. 55 pages, [1, blank]. Light foxing to the wrappers and a small chip to the lower rear wrap; in all an exceptionally nicely preserved copy of a scarce and important feminist tract. While OCLC reports numerous copies online or in microform, it reports only three physical copies at institutions (New York Historical Society, AAS, and the Huntington). It is the only first edition on the market. Reformer, novelist, and woman of letters Lydia Maria Child firmly believed that the national fates of women and enslaved people were tied. There could be no freedom for one group without liberating the other. She was the editor of Harriet Jacobs' 1861 Narrative, the founder of the New England Anti-Slavery Society, and a suffragist. The present work places responsibility for slavery onto the same patriarchal culture that binds privileged white women. Drawing together Southern arguments by slave holders and slavery proponents, Child then skillfully and logically rebuts them. In doing so, she proves the calm presence of mind possible in woman, exposes the inconsistency and cruelty of slavery, and provides readers with talking points of their own when confronted with similar racism. Purposefully or not, she became through works like these the founder of "one of the most influential branches of nineteenth century American feminism as a resistance movement committed to the idea that the key to social reform was the recognition and maintenance of human differences" (Pratt).

Baltimore: John Murphy & Co, 1860. "When we met here in December, the public mind was deeply stirred. It was stirred by an occurrence which had taken place for the first time in our history- the invasion of one of the States of the Confederacy by a band of fanatics- for the avowed purpose of interfering with its domestic institutions, and setting its slaves at liberty....Has Congress the right to exclude slavery from the Territories, or can it delegate that right to a Territorial Legislature; or has a Territorial Legislature, in the absence of any delegation of this power by Congress, an inherent right to exclude slavery?"

Wagner, Richard, Komponist (1813-1860).
Ungedruckter, außerordentlich seltener, sehr ausführlicher und detailreicher Brief, kurz nach Wagners Rückkehr aus dem Exil, am Tag der Audienz bei Augusta von Preußen, die sich für ihn eingesetzt hatte. An Wagners "alten Dresdner Freund" (Glasenapp) Adolf Julius Rühlemann in Dresden, u. a. über die Partitur des "Fliegenden Holländers" und "Lohengrin": "[...] In Darmstadt traf ich nämlich die Abmachung wegen des fliegenden Holländers. Seien Sie doch so gut, zu betreiben, dass baldmöglichst eine berichtigte Partitur des 'fliegenden Holländers' an die grossherzogl. Hoftheaterdirection in Darmstadt abgesandt werde.

An original illustration, a nely-rendered, updated, artistic interpretation of the mid-19th century "Tecumseh Saving Prisoners" by American artist John Reuben Chapin (1823-1904), which was engraved by James Charles Armytage. Chapin was known for his Western scenes and subject and his body of work done for Gleason's Pictorial in the 1840s and his work as a book illustrator.The image concerns an event during the War of 1812. In 1813, at Fort Meigs in Ohio, a detachment of Kentuckian militia men under Colonel William Dudley successfully laid siege to the fort. But the Kentucky men became distracted by enemy re coming from the woods from Native Americans under the command of Shawnee chieftain Tecumseh. The Kentuckians were lured deeper into the woods where hundreds were killed and massacred in what became known as "Dudley's Defeat." American prisoners who survived this massacre battle were taken to Fort Miami. There, Native Americans under British command began to further harass and massacre the prisoners. When Tecumseh learned of this ongoing massacre he dramatically intervened to prevent his own warriors from further killing.Here, as in Chapin's image, Shawnee leader Tecumseh, with his tomahawk gripped in his right hand, stands in front of an imploring white male who … [Click Below for Full Description]

It is a work that altered how hospitals approached patient care, saving countless lives from infection. It also helped transform nursing from a volunteer role to a more respected and formalized career path for women.The owner of this copy, Richard Monkton Milnes, "was a family friend from Nightingale's childhood, and her most serious suitor. She turned him down finally after a long courtship, not without some regrets ... Milnes and Nightingale remained friends for life and she made a friend also of his wife" (McDonald).

CORNILLIET, Jules and Abel BRUN.
[Binding title:] Album costumes de théatre originaux.[France, ca. 1860]. Small folio (32.5 x 27.5 cm). Album with 178 watercolours and gouaches, and 3 prints (2 lithographs and 1 engraving) mounted on 195 leaves numbered in pencil. Including 73 signed by Jules Cornilliet, 66 signed by Abel Brun, 1 signed "Happel" and 1 "Stop" (pseudonym of Louis Morel-Retz), most of the others clearly matching those of Cornilliet and Brun. Near contemporary black half sheepskin. Substantial collection of original 19th-century designs for French theatre costumes. The designs can be roughly divided into the realistic and contemporary designs of Jules Cornilliet and the fantastic and humorous designs by Abel Brun; these include historical, oriental, satirical and allegorical costumes and costumes for specific types of theatre (ballet, drama, operetta). While Cornilliet often uses simple, but colourful and effective designs, Brun's designs are extravagant (like the pompously dressed-up noblemen "Le Prince Kolibrikiki"), absurd (like the doctor "Un Porte-Seringue", who is carrying an enormous syringe on his side) and monstrous (like the tailed blue and hairy beast "Le Scorpion"). The designs were most likely used for the fabrication of the costumes as they often include notes concerning the fabric and colours. We weren't able to match the costumes to any plays, but further research could be worthwhile.Most of the watercolours and gouaches are by either Jules Cornilliet (1830-1886) or Abel Brun. The latter is solely known from his art, including designs for colourful advertisements from the late … [Click Below for Full Description]

The second edition is not so named on title but simply labelled 'Fifth Thousand'; Freeman records that 3000 copies were printed following the 1250 copies of the first edition. Although Darwin considered this edition a rapid revision to meet demand, his changes are much more than mere correction. The most famous alteration is the dilution of the whale bear passage on p.184, which Darwin later regretted although he never restored it. Pull out diagram is intact as shown Darwin revolutionized our methods of thinking and our outlook on the natural order of things. When the first edition was published on 24 November 1859, in a print run of 1,250 copies, it created an immediate sensation. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The estate of Henrietta. M. H. Clarke
Perry County, Alabama, 1860. Unbound. Very good. This two-page appraisal measures 7.75" x 12.75". It bears three horizonal file folds. In nice shape. When evaluated by a panel of four appraisers, the 13 slaves identified in this document were valued between $0 and $1,650 each. Their names were: Bass, Matilda, Woodson, Mary, Elijah, Jess, Bass, Sarah Francis, Old Elijah, Old Jess, Old Rachel, Lucy, and Betsy. The four "valueless" slaves were Old Jess, Old Rachel, Lucy, and Betsy. Henrietta's Clarke's will was first presented for execution in probate court on July 23, 1859 and all of her "real, personal and mixed" property was scheduled to be evenly divided between her four children. It appears that later, perhaps after the division of property was under way, the estate received unpaid bills due to creditors. To meet these debts, the family requested permission from the court "to sell some of the negroes belonging to said estate." This appraisal, dated nearly six months after the will was filed, is likely related to the "necessary" slave sale referenced in court documents. Out-side of Henrietta's will and associated documents, available through Alabama, Wills and Probate Records, 1753-1999 online at Ancestry.com, Clarke family documents are scarce at best. However, a 1860 Slave Schedule available at the Census Office shows 42 slaves were owned by Robert Clarke of Woodville (now Uniontown), Perry County, Alabama. "Valueless" slaves are not often found on slave sales or appraisal documents. It is probable that the family members selected the 13 slaves to be s … [Click Below for Full Description]

This is an opportnity to own a nice copy of Charles Darwin's first publication, and one that shares the same elegant appearance of that first edition of his most famous work. This is the first time that Darwin's researches (which first appeared in 1839) were produced in an edition similar to the first editions of The Origin, with the distinctive John Murray casing.
