        Leaves of Grass

      Boston: Thayer & Eldridge, 1860 - Third Edition; printing 1 (BAL 21397- "probable sequence"); state 1 of the frontispiece portrait; binding B (no sequence established, but binding A was issued in wrappers for reviewers, and therefore those copies might have been issued prior to printed sheets being sent to the binder, or perhaps the publisher restricted the additional and considerable expense of binding to those paying for it). Pencil ownership inscription on the first blank; splitting and worn newspaper clipping regarding a Whitman reading pasted inside the front cover; a little shaken; slightly closer to very good than good. The publisher quickly sold out the first printing and produced a second before going bankrupt. These plates enjoyed a life far beyond that of their original owner, and were used in many unauthorized (a polite term for ÒpirateÓ) printings before their eventual purchase and retirement by WhitmanÕs estate.

        CATALOGUE OF FISHES, MOLLUSCA, ZOOPHYTES, &c., &c. [caption title]

      Boston, 1860. Broadside, 14 x 9 inches. Some light foxing. Old fold lines. Some small chips and tears around the edges. Very good. Broadside advertising the contents of the tanks at the Boston Aquarial Gardens, later renamed the Boston Aquarial and Zoological Gardens. When first established in 1859 by James Cutting, the Gardens were devoted solely to marine life. In the spring of 1860, it undertook a change in direction with the inclusion of zoology, as is already evidenced in this broadside, which advertises kangaroos, bears, monkeys, rats, as well as several species of birds and reptiles. The Gardens was acquired by P.T. Barnum in the summer of 1862 and closed in 1863, its holdings relocated to Barnum's museum in New York. The contents of forty tanks are listed here, as well as fourteen cases holding zoological life. Posting open hours of 9 A.M. to 10 P.M., with a daily fish-feeding at 11 A.M., the broadside warns patrons to "always look through that part of the glass nearest the object" in order to prevent dizziness. OCLC locates only four similar items.

        REPORTS OF EXPLORATIONS AND SURVEYS, TO ASCERTAIN THE MOST PRACTICABLE AND ECONOMICAL ROUTE FOR A RAILROAD FROM THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN. MADE UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE SECRETARY OF WAR, IN 1853-4...

      Washington, 1860. Twelve volumes bound in thirteen. Profusely illustrated with maps, lithographic plates, colored lithographic plates, profiles, etc. Large, thick quarto. Original blindstamped cloth, spines gilt. Minor edgewear. Each volume rebacked, retaining original backstrip, but with new endpapers. All but one volume from the Senate issue (Volume XII, Part 1 is the House issue, with a Senate backstrip). Volumes III and X each with two extra plates not called for by Wagner-Camp or in the survey's lists of illustrations, Volume V and Volume XII, Part 1 lacking one plate each. A number of maps with holes and separations along fold lines, several with large tears, including Warren's map of the western United States. Also lacking the general map of of the routes surveyed from Volume XI. Occasional tideline affecting text or an illustration, scattered foxing and toning. Overall quite clean internally. Good plus. This large quarto set is the most important and massive compilation of exploration reports and data ever published about the trans-Mississippi West. Under the direction of Secretary of War Jefferson Davis, the Pacific Railroad survey in two years increased the contemporary knowledge of the geography, topography, geology, and natural history of the West by a quantum leap. Included herein are the reports of Humphreys, Stevens, Beckwith, Whipple, Warren, Williamson, Lander, et al., supplemented with reports on scientific observations, and numerous significant achievements in cartography including Warren's "Map of the Territory of the United States from the Mississippi to the Pacific Ocean..." (here present in the eleventh volume), which has been hailed as "the best cartographical work on the West up to its time..." (Howes). The illustrative material (engraved and lithographed views, specimens of birds, fishes, and other animals) is of the highest quality, often in colored state, and encompasses thousands of illustrations, either in the text or as separate plates. Wheat devotes twenty-four pages of detailed discussion to the maps in this series of reports, singling out the Warren map as "among the great maps of the United States that preceded the Civil War." All things considered, this edition of the Pacific Railroad Surveys stands as a testament to one of the greatest government sponsored projects in our history, and is a foundation work for any collection devoted to Western Americana or cartography.

        Vue de la maison de Kofler dans les Environs de Brixen en Tirol.\r

      1860 - Pietro Marchioretto nacque a Lamon, dal secondo matrimonio di Giovanni Maria Marchioretto e Francesca Fiorenza, nel 1761. I suoi biografi, quando ancora era in vita, posero la data di nascita nel 1772 e l’errore venne ripetuto spesso, fino a quando Liberale Paganini riportò un riassunto dell’atto di nascita. La prima biografia di Marchioretto è opera di Antonio Frigo, arciprete di Borgo Valsugana, scritta tra il 1812 e il 1814 quando l’artista lamonese era ancora in vita e viveva a Telve Valsugana. Secondo il sacerdote Marchioretto se ne va di casa a 13 anni, dopo il terzo matrimonio del padre. Si reca dapprima a Bassano dove ricopia e vende le immagini sacre tratte dalle stampe dell’editore Remondini. Poi lo ritroviamo a Ramon di Loria, vicino a Castelfranco Veneto, dove è a servizio di un contadino. Qui viene notato per la sua abilità nel disegno dal nobile veneziano Pietro Civran che aveva alle sue dipendenze, come accadeva allora, un artista, il bellunese Giovan Battista Lazzarini, con il quale Marchioretto ebbe la sua prima vera formazione artistica. Le sue tracce si ritrovano a Venezia dove nel 1791 è indicato come «"angente" di Pietro Civran», cioè lavorava per lui, come domestico o con maggiori responsabilità. Nello stesso anno muore Lazzarini che lo indica come erede di parte dei suoi beni. Vive bene, ora, Marchioretto. Nel 1797 incontra il pittore goriziano Francesco Causig, suo secondo maestro. E’ di quegli anni anche l’incontro con l’incisore Gaetano Zancon, con la pubblicazione a Venezia di dodici incisioni su rame: i dipinti sono di Marchioretto, le incisioni di Zancon. Da Venezia, Marchioretto passa a Verona e poi a Bressanone, dove avvia una attività insieme allo stesso Zancon e allo stampatore Bisdomini che proseguirà per un paio d’anni con la produzione e la vendita di opere pregevoli, una ventina. Il pittore lamonese si sposta poi in Valsugana e a Trento, mentre le sue opere vengono diffuse sotto forma di incisioni nel mondo tedesco, dal 1806 al 1820. A Telve Valsugana Marchioretto si stabilisce attorno al 1811, dopo il matrimonio con Elisabetta Franceschi. Dalle lettere trovate da Conte, ci sono tracce di rapporti con nobili e personaggi conosciuti del Trentino, a testimonianza che il pittore aveva raggiunto una buona fama. Marchioretto è morto nel 1828 a Telve. er maggiori informazione rimandiamo alla monografia di Conte Paolo "Pietro Marchioretto. Un paesaggista tra Veneto e Tirolo" . Formato: Acquatinta colorata di mm 470x570. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo, restauro sulla sommità destra dell’incisione.

        Portrait of Dominic Charles Colnaghi and his wife Catherine Pontet

      London, ca. 1860. Original photograph, carte de visite, albumen print, 10 x 6 cm. - P & D Colnaghi. - Colnaghi's impending retirement to Italy was postponed when his son Martin sued both his father and his brother Dominic (1790-1879) in 1824. The settlement of the lawsuit left Martin with the old shop. Martin became bankrupt in 1832 and 1843, and died in 1851, but his son (also Martin) continued the separate business in Pall Mall. Paul and Dominic Colnaghi moved to Pall Mall East - near the nascent National Gallery - and Paul Colnaghi continued to work in the business until he died in 1833. Caroline Scott's son, John Anthony Scott, joined Dominic Colnaghi in the business in 1839. Scott commissioned William Simpson to go to the Crimea in 1854 to make watercolour sketches of scenes from the Crimean War, published as a series of 81 lithographs in The Seat of War in the East. The gallery also sold photographs by Roger Fenton. After this early experience with photography, the gallery commissioned Leonida Caldesi and Mattia Montecchi to take photographs at the Art Treasures Exhibition in 1857, published in Gems of the Manchester Art Treasures Exhibition in 1858, and Colnaghi published artistic photographs by Julia Margaret Cameron from 1864. The firm was associated with John Constable, assisting him to exhibit The Hay Wain at the Paris Salon in 1824, where it won a gold medal. The art dealership organised exhibitions for the British Institution, and of paintings by Eugène Delacroix in 1829. After Scott died in 1864, and Dominic Colnaghi retired in 1865 and died in 1879, Scott's cousin Andrew McKay became sole proprietor. He was joined by his son William KcKay in 1879. - - - - Dominic Colnaghi married Catherine Pontet (d. 1881) on 15 October 1831, and they had two sons, neither of whom entered the firm, but the elder, Sir Dominic Ellis Colnaghi (1834-1908), became a consular official; posted to Florence in 1865, he served as consul-general for northern Italy from 1881 to 1896, and wrote A Dictionary of Florentine Painters from the Thirteenth to the Seventeenth Centuries, which was edited by P. G. Konody and Selwyn Brinton and published posthumously in 1928 (reprinted 1986). Leonida Caldesi (1823-1891). Leonida Caldesi was born in Florence, Italy in 1823 and arrived in England as a political refugee around 1850, though whether he was a photographer at this time is not clear. His brother Vincenzo (1817-1870) served as a major on the staff of the Italian patriot and revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807-1882). - Comparatively little is known about Caldesi's career though he was one of the leading London photographers during the 1850s and was acknowledged by contem­poraries as one of the foremost photographers of fine art from the 1850s to the 1870s. He had a number of short-term professional partners including Mattia Mon - tecchi (1858-59), Blandford (1861-62) and Lombardi, though throughout his career he maintained a business relationship with the print publisher and art dealer Paul and Dominic Colnaghi. Caldesi had important dealings with the Royal Family as well as three major public art collections in London; The National Gallery, the British Museum and the South Kensington Museum. He also carried out society portraiture and worked for learned societies and private collectors. - In August 1854, probably as part of a project lead by Paul and Dominic Colnaghi, Caldesi had requested per­mission to photograph the Raphael Cartoons at Hampton Court though he did not carry out his campaign until 1858 when he photographed in tandem with the South Kensington Museum's photographer Charles Thurston Thompson [qv]. - 1857 was probably the most important year in Caldesi's photographic career. In May Caldesi and his professional partner Mattia Montecchi, a compatriot who travelled to England with him, were summoned to Osborne on the Isle of Wight to take a series of photo­graphs of the Royal children. His growing reputation was sufficient for him to be established in April on the premises of P&D Colnaghi by John Scott, one of the firms' partners, and by June 1857 this establishment was noted in the columns of the Art-Journal. Colnaghi was to remain the primary publisher of Caldesi's reproduc­tions of works of art. - Although Caldesi specialised in the photographic re­production of works of art, his core business was centred on society portraiture and he exhibited several of these at that year's Art Treasures exhibition in Manchester. Caldesi and Montecchi also were engaged to photograph many of the paintings exhibited at this seminal exhibition. Along­side Robert Howlett [qv], they produced the majority of the 200 photographs for the two-volume 'Ancient' and 'Modern' series of Photographs of the Gems of the Art Treasures Exhibition, Manchester. Caldesi found difficulty in photographing some of the paintings in Manchester and successfully negotiated with the Royal Collection for some of its works to be subsequently moved outdoors to be photographed. - In the summer of 1857 Caldesi and Montecchi photo­graphed a smaller exhibition of portraits of Mary, Queen of Scots held at the Archaeological Institute, London. Theseat were published in 1858. - In 1859 The Gallery of the Most Noble The Marquess of Hertford, K. G., a selection of Caldesi's photographs from the Manchester exhibition, was published. At that year's exhibition of the Societe francaise de Photogra­phie Caldesi and Montecchi exhibited twenty-one pho­tographs of paintings displayed at the 1857 Manchester Art Treasures. Caldesi advertised a studio at Porchester Terrace in London's Bayswater and he began carrying out photo­graphic work for Prince Albert's Raphael Collection project. Perhaps as a result of this commission, Caldesi recorded the paintings in Buckingham Palace and was given permission to remove them to his studio. These photographs were published by P&D Colnaghi as the Royal Collection of Pictures at Buckingham Palace, and comprised forty small Albumen prints mounted on cards with printed captions that credit Caldesi, Bland - ford & Co. as the photographers, Montecchi having disappeared from the scene. This publication may bear the hand of the Prince Consort. Caldesi received further royal patronage that year when he was commissioned by Grand Duchess Marie of Russia to photograph the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum and he exhibited some of these views the following year at the Photographic Society's exhibition in London. - Caldesi advertised in the influential Athenaeum in the early 1860s stating that he personally took carte de visite portraits at 13 Pall Mall East, the Colnaghi premises, while 'portraits, Carriages, Horses, &c.' were taken at the branch studio at 6 Victoria Grove, Kensington. He photographed a number of prominent people including Sir Charles Eastlake, director of the National Gallery. In 1864 Caldesi published carte de viste portraits Giuseppe Garibaldi and his fellow patriot Giuseppe Mazzini (1805-1872) during their visits to London. - During the 1860s Caldesi also produced cartes de visites of paintings though it appears that he did not use the stereoscopic or Cabinet formats to any significant degree. - In 1860 Caldesi carried out a photographic campaign in the National Gallery in London, exhibiting some these photographs of paintings at the 1861 exhibition of the Societe francaise de Photographie. Between 1868 and 1873 The Pictures by the Old Masters in The National Gallery, a series of photographs of 360 paintings, was published by Virtue & Company. At this time Caldesi photographed a number of paintings in the Gallery on behalf of the director Sir William Boxall (1800-1879). - During the 1860s Caldesi was to carry out photo­graphic campaigns to record important private art col­lections such as the Farnley Hall collection of drawings by J. M.W. Turner These photographs, published by Colnaghi in 1864, seem to have had little impact and were not reviewed by the contemporary press. Another Colnaghi publication of 1864 was the Photographic Historical Portrait Gallery, which required Caldesi to photograph just under 200 Albumen prints of Tudor portrait miniatures. - An account of the latter years of Caldesi's life has yet to be assembled. Photographs by Cave. Leonida Caldesi, of Ancient Marbles, Bronzes, Terracottas, & C, & C. in the British Museum was jointly published with Colnaghi's between 1873-1874 but the photographs may have been taken some years before. Caldesi ap­pears to have returned to Bologna in around 1870 and died there in 1891. (Anthony Hamber). - Gernsheim 220: (...) Although it is marked Vol. I, no more were published.

        Bound volume of coloured separately-issued prints, including the Australian kangaroo and emu.

      London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, circa 1860. Oblong album containing 119 handcoloured plates, recent red cloth. Attractive collection of coloured zoological plates prepared for British schoolchildren during the mid-nineteenth century, including two Australian species (an emu and a kangaroo). The plates were issued by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, the publishing arm of the Anglican mission that during the early decades of the nineteenth century diversified its output from religious and theological texts to encompass a broad range of educational material, such as the present example. The plates were originally issued separately, priced at two pennies apiece when coloured, and the present bound volume represents a good portion of the entire series (of the 119 plates here, 53 are numbered). The explanatory text reflects a spirit of benevolent pedagogy. Take the description of the Emu for example: 'These birds are widely spread over the southern part of New Holland, and the neighbouring islands. They are met with at Port Philip and King George's Sound. Their food consists almost wholly of fruits, roots and herbage; they are quite harmless, except when attacked... It is sometimes coursed for sport; being pursued by well-trained dogs, which run up abreast and make a sudden spring at the creatures neck. This, however, is a cruel amusement. We have no right to seek our pleasure in a dumb creatures pain... ' Aside from the Australian fauna, the collection includes fish, cetaceans, reptiles and all manner of old world mammals. Significant closed tears affect five of the plates (Australian images unaffected), margins of the final seven plates chipped and worn.
