        Andrew Jackson.

      New York: Ritchie & Co., n.y. [ca. 1860]. Mezzotint. Folio (21" X 29"), framed under a single tan matte in a contemporary 1¼" simple dark wood frame (overall dimensions 30" X 39"). Print is near fine -- bright and clean, delicately colored in subdued shades. 1970s vintage framing, plain but serviceable, slight signs of wear and a touch of faint soiling to the matte. Jackson is pictured standing full-length in three-piece suit gazing to the viewer's right, a chair behind him, right hand resting on a table laden with books, documents, quill pen and inkstand. Little is known about artist D.M. Carter (1827-81), on whose painting this mezzotint is based, but Scottish-born Alexander Hay Ritchie (1822-95), whose name appears in the plate as engraver, was a well-known New York artist and engraver whose firm specialized in mezzotints. From the collection of ADLAI E. STEVENSON III (b. 1930), former U.S. Senator from Illinois, in whose Senate office it once hung. (Son of two-term Illinois governor and two-time presidential candidate Adlai E. Stevenson II and great-grandson of Grover Cleveland's vice president Adlai E. Stevenson I.)

        ARCHIVE Of 120 BILLHEAD RECEIPTS, 1840s - 1860s, To P. WHITIN & SONS, Whitinsville, Mass

      1860. The preponderance printed on blue paper. Sizes range from 4-1/8" x 6-7/8" to 7-3/8" x 7-1/2" "Paul Whitin helped found the Northbridge Cotton Manufacturing Company in Northbridge, Massachusetts, in 1809, and in 1816 joined his brothers-in-law in founding the Whitin & Fletchers mill in South Northbridge (now Whitinsville), of which he became sole owner in 1826. Around this time, his two elder sons, Paul, Jr., and John, joined him, forming P. Whitin & Sons. Operating under that name, Paul and John purchased the Northbridge Cotton Manufacturing Company mill after the death of their father in 1831, and they later added their younger brothers, Charles and James, to the company. The company prospered and supplemented its cotton production with the manufacture of pickers, looms, and other machinery. About half of the houses in Whitinsville were owned by the company and rented to its employees, most of whom worked in the shop and foundry; a few employees were clerks in the company store." [UM website]. The P. Whitin & Sons firm was dissolved in 1864. This collection of receipts documents their purchases of foodstuffs & other sundry items from divers merchants in Providence, R.I. [e.g., Wm. F. Huntoon. Coffee & Spices], Worcester [e.g., L. Spring 2nd. Flour, Meal, Salt, et al] & Boston [e.g., W. Baker & Co. Chocolate & Cocoa]. A nice cache of material documenting food prices in the Northeast during the mid-19th C.

        Speech of Abraham Lincoln of Illinois, Delivered at the Cooper Institute, Monday, Feb. 27, 1860 [Cooper Union Address]. WITH: Carte-de-Visite of the Mathew Brady "Cooper Union" photograph

      New York Tribune New York: New York Tribune. FIRST EDITION. Original wrappers. Very Good. FIRST EDITION of Lincoln's historic Cooper Union Address, delivered on February 27, 1860 at the Cooper Institute in Brooklyn, New York. The speech is largely credited to having launched Lincoln's Presidential bid. With silver print carte-de-visite of the Brady "Cooper Union" photograph. In the fall of 1859, James A. Briggs, who served on the lecture committee of the Plymouth Church in Brooklyn, invited presidential candidate hopeful Abraham Lincoln to speak to a New York audience on any subject of his choosing. Lincoln accepted the invitation, choosing to speak of the current political climate in America. William O. Stoddard, an Illinois journalist who worked for President Lincoln during his administration, noted that "No previous effort of his life cost him so much hard work as did that Cooper Institute speech" and that the resulting speech "was a masterly review of the history of the slavery question from the foundation of the government, with a clear, bold, statesmanlike presentation of the then present attitude of parties and of sections. It exhibited a careful research, a thorough knowledge and understanding of political movements and developments, that staggered even the most laborious and painstaking students. It showed a grasp, a breadth, a mental training, and a depth of penetration which compelled the admiration of critical scholars" (Stoddard, Abraham Lincoln: The True Story of a Great Life). "Horace Greeley had rushed out the speech in pamphlet form as 'Tribune Tract' Number 4, under the headline: National Politics. Speech of Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois, Delivered at the Cooper Institute, Monday Feb. 27, 1860. The pamphlet was ready March 6, while Lincoln was still traveling through Connecticut. When he returned to New York, he found it already available to the public. "Greeley marketed the eleven-page Tribune edition aggressively… As a bonus, the publication included Wisconsin Republican senator James Doolittle's February 24 speech attaching 'the new doctrine of judicial infallibility,' as did Lincoln's address at Cooper Union just three days later, and also, like Cooper Union, railing agains 'the headstrong zeal pursued by the other party to force slavery into Territories'… "It was as if Republicans were now speaking with one voice: identifying with the founders, attacking the Dred Scott decision, rebuking John Brown, and drawing their own 'dividing line' on slavery extension. Lincoln did not say it alone; but he said it best… 'Mr. Lincoln's is probably the most systematic and complete defense yet made of the Republican position with regard to Slavery,' the Tribune declared in its initial advertisement for the reprints. 'We believe no speech has yet been made better calculated to win the intelligent minds over to our standard. Will the friends of the Cause everywhere aid us to circulate it?' "The answer was yes. The Tribune Tract edition proved enormously popular, going through at least five additional editions… [Lincoln's] New York oration was enjoying a new and sustained life in pamphlet form, and was being purchased, individually, and in bulk alike, by admirers and groups across the North. "The Cooper Union address tested whether Lincoln's appeal could extend from the podium to the page, and from the rollicking campaigns of the rural West to the urban East… Cooper Union held the promise of transforming Lincoln from a regional phenomenon to a national figure. Lincoln knew it, and rose to the occasion. "As if to illustrate his metamorphosis, the Cooper Union appearance also inspired the most important single visual record on Lincoln's, or perhaps any, American presidential campaign: an image-transfiguring Mathew Brady photograph. Its later proliferation and reproduction in prints, medallions, broadsides, and banners perhaps did as much to create a 'new' Abraham Lincoln as did the Cooper Union address itself. "Supposedly, Lincoln volunteered when he encountered the famous photographer again a few months later: 'Brady and the Cooper Institute made me President'… Make him president, they undoubtedly did" (Harold Holzer, Lincoln at the Copper Union: The Speech That Made Abraham Lincoln President). Note: Although it is difficult to date, the carte-de-visite appears to be a late-nineteenth century production. Provenance for the speech: From the collection of George Hambrecht, first president of the Wisconsin Lincoln Fellowship and renown Lincoln scholar/collector, with his signature in pencil on rear wrapper. New York: New York Tribune, Tribune Tracts, No. 4, 1860. Octavo, original wrappers; custom box. Light uniform toning. Lincoln's speech comprises pages 1-11 (out of a total of 16 pages). With New York Tribune ads and subscription terms on rear wrapper. RARE.

First edition in English, the most important work of the German Protestant missionary and explorer Johann Ludwig Krapf (1810-1881), who arrived in Ethiopia in 1837 before moving on to Cairo in 1842. "For the next eleven years, 1844-55, Krapf worked in the coastal areas of modern Kenya, first in Mombasa... and then at Rabai, on a ridge a few kilometres inland... In November 1848 Krapf himself set out with eleven bearers on an inland journey to visit the Kamba, traversing the almost waterless thorn scrub that stretches some three hundred kilometres inland from the coast behind Rabai. After twenty-one days march he reached the edge of Ukambani, where the chief, Kivoi, said he had often seen a mountain called Kegnia (Kenya) which was covered with a cold, white substance. When he invited Krapf to a nearby hilltop the missionary could see in the distance both mounts Kilimanjaro and Kenya. The expedition was beset by illness and a mutiny of the porters, and Krapf returned to the coast. Krapf's second journey to Ukambani followed in April 1851. Kivoi agreed to build a mission station on his territory but disaster struck when Kivoi and fifty followers accompanied the missionary to the agreed site for the headquarters. Kivoi's enemies ambushed him in the forest, killed him and put his men to flight. Krapf, left alone and destitute, wandered through the forest, shunned by the Kamba, and eventually limped back to the coast... In 1852 Krapf and another Basel-trained missionary, Johann Erhardt, sailed down the East African coast as far as Kilwa, in the process providing the first new information about the coast since the British coastal survey of 1822-24" (Howgego).

        Autograph letter signed to Latimer Clark

      1860. Very Good. Whitehouse, Edward Orange Wildman. A.L.s. to Latimer Clark. Westminster [London,] April 15, 1860 or 1861[year illegible]. 2- pp. 205 x 129 mm. Remains of mounting present. Provenance: Latimer Clark. Whitehouse was the engineer appointed by Cyrus Field to supervise the design and manufacture of the first Atlantic cable, which ceased to function a few weeks after its installation in 1858. Whitehouse's letter to Clark is largely illegible, but the phrases "joint testimony" and "the line during its manufacture at Chelsea" suggest that Whitehouse is referring to the hearings conducted by the joint committee appointed by the British government to investigate the causes of the cable's failure. In those hearings, blame for the cable's failure was laid largely at the feet of Whitehouse. Origins of Cyberspace 214.

        Théorie mathématique des courants électriques [ET] Études des lois des courants électriques [ET] Notice sur l'appareil d'induction électrique de Ruhmorff

      1860 - [4]-202-[6]-X-201-[8]-X-[2]-40 Paris, L. Hachette & Mallet-Bachelier, 1860 et 1859, in-8, [4]-202-[6]-X-201-[8]-X-[2]-400 pages, demi-basane fauve à coins postérieure, dos à 5 nerfs, Intéressant regroupement de trois œuvres majeures dans l’histoire des théories sur l’électricité : la première édition française des lois d’Ohm, le texte le plus important de Du Moncel sur l’application pratique des lois électriques, et une quatrième édition de son introduction à la bobine de Ruhmkorff, un générateur électrique qui révolutionna les expériences électriques au milieu du XIXe siècle. En 1827, Georg Simon Ohm (1789-1854), dans Die galvanishe Kette, mathematisch bearbeitet établit les lois fondamentales du courant électrique : loi de la longueur, loi de la section et loi des courants dérivés, aujourd’hui plus généralement connue sous nom de loi d’Ohm. L’édition française, publiée 23 ans après l’édition originale allemande fut donnée par Jean-Mothée Gaugain. Le premier texte de Du Moncel, inventeur prolifique d’appareils électriques et un des premiers et meilleurs vulgarisateurs français sur le sujet, débute par une exposition des lois d’Ohm. Son second texte, ici en quatrième édition (la première avait paru en 1855) constitue, à l’époque, une étude particulièrement précoce sur la bobine que Ruhmkorff inventa en 1851. L’ouvrage est richement illustré. Bon exemplaire de ce recueil historique intéressant, portant sur le premier contreplat, l’ex-libris de James Boyd Gilmore, et le cachet, annulé, de l'Institut Catholique de Paris.

        Grand Trunk Railway of Canada, Victoria Bridge, over the river St. Lawrence at Montreal

      London: John Weale, 1860. Lithograph printed in two tints by Kell Brothers, with touches of hand-colouring, from a drawing by S. Russel. Fine condition, but inscription cut into with the loss of two letters. Provenance: Thos. Wise (presentation inscription on verso of print 'Presented by The Auth[or] / to Thos Wise") A presentation copy of this spectacular print from the 'Construction of the Great Victoria Bridge in Canada', a rare and sumptuously produced work on what was once the longest bridge in the world. Published in 1860, Construction of the Great Victoria Bridge in Canada , is a monument both to a great 19th-century engineering achievement and also to the fascination with new technologies and techniques that characterized the period. This great work was illustrated with several fine views of the various stages of practical construction of the bridge and highly detailed engineers' plans covering all the technical aspects of the project. James Stephenson and Alexander M. Ross were the engineers for the bridge; James Hodges built it for the contractors Sir Thomas Peto, Thomas Brassey and Edward Ladd Betts. Despite the great natural difficulties, not the least of which was the river icing up in winter, the builders encountered in its construction, the bridge was opened to passenger carrying rail traffic on December 19, 1859.

Green stitched wrs.,blind-stamped swastica. design, title slip, rear covers mottled, tightly bound, the. contents exceptionally clean, 30 double-page text + 2 last. pages colophon, 11 illustrations, of which 4 are in color.. EARLY PRIMARY SOURCE ON AINU BY THE MAN WHO NAMED HOKKAIDO This very unusual and famous work. It covers the early official and primary travels of Matsuura Takeshiro to Ezo [Hokkaido prior to being named "Hokkaido"] in 1859. . Matsuura executed his Shogunate appointed objective of exploring Ezo, and making a visual and written record of what he saw, the Ainu people and others he met on his travels. He wrote several works on that area, this example is one of those historic records. Matsuura was officially authorized by the Shogunate to name/rename areas he traveled in the Hokkaido area. Matsuura is the man responsible for changing the name of "Ezo" to be "Hokkaido." *** Per Bartlett, p.198-199: Bartlett gives KITA EZO YOSHI a variant English title: A FURTHER ACCOUNT OF NORTH EZO: TRIP TO DARUIKA AND THE OROKKO TRIBES. . "In the preface the author states that this book extract from the official report on the expedition to Karafuto [Sakhalin] in 30 volumes that was then presented to the Hokkaido Government Office. In June 1854 [a later edition of this title] the author parted from his companions to visit Daruika and the Orokko people and rejoined them in July after having had the experiences recounted in this book." . Again in Bartlett, on p.198 exhibit 68, figure 63 he shows the exact illustration found our copy of Matsuura being entertained by several Ainu peoples. . Bartlett states about this double-page illustration: "Japanese dignitary, presumably the author, visiting Ainu at an island touched during the voyage to Sakhalin. The bearded Ainu are offering gifts of fish and other food." See our website for a scan of this fascinating example. *** THE ELEVEN ILLUSTRATIONS: There are a total of ten woodblock illustrations in this book: a. Two double-page black, gray, shaded illustrations. b. Two color double-page illustrations. c. Three double-page black outline illustrations. d. Three single page black outline drawings/illustrations. *** CONDITION: The front covers and the title slip are quite clean.

The color illustrations and line drawings are also excellent, no issue. . The book is firmly bound in its original threads. The book is enclosed in a more recent indigo-blue Chitsu folding case with bone clasps. *** WHO WAS MATSUURA Takeshiro [1818-1888]: "The author was an explorer who went as far north as Ezo [modern day Hokkaido before it was named "Hokkaido"]. He was later commissioned by the Shogunate to survey the topography of Hokkaido in 1885, and then appointed judge at Hakodate and concurrently secretary of the bureau that was established to give names to various parts of Hokkaido in 1868. He wrote many books on his travels, most noted of which is TOZAI EZO NIKKI: DIARY OF EAST AND WEST HOKKAIDO." Extracted from J.B.E.& W.W., see below for bibliographical citation. *** ADDITIONAL BIBLIOGRAPHIC DETAILS: The work contains double-folded pages 1-30 of text and illustrations, plus 2 sheets postscript, dated Man nen 1, introduction dated Ansei 7 [1860], [1860], no place of publication, but somewhere in Japan.

      Edinburgh Review, 1860, Volume 111., 1860, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good Condition, First Edition. The Darwin article is 45 pages. Octavo. The complete volume 111 (556pp, index).

Ex university library, with their stamp to the rear of the title page, and tickets on the front endpapers, and class number label to the foot of the spine, otherwise quite unmarked throughout. Overall a very clean and sound volume. Owen's review of Darwin for the Edinburgh Review was considered by many at the time to effectively crush the evolutionist theory. Attacking Darwin's chief supporters, Hooker and Huxley as mere adherents, he claimed that Darwin represented an "abuse of science" whilst ignoring or dismissing Owen's own creationist views. In response Darwin believed Owen to be "spiteful and malignant", though he also admitted to being hurt by Owen's views of him. One of Owen's chief charges was that Darwin had failed to bring any new facts to light, effectively basing his theory on imagination rather than observation. The arguments that raged through the scientific community, and indeed the popular press in the months and years following Darwin's publication were often buttressed by reference to Owen's opposition, and it was effectively the 1870s before Owen's views were widely discounted in public perception. This Edinburgh Review article is one of the cornerstone pieces of writing in the Darwin evolutionary theory debates of the 19th century. Quantity Available: 1.

      - Die ländlichen Wohnsitze, Schlösser u. Residenzen der ritterschaftlichen Grundbesitzer in der Preussischen Monarchie, Rheinland 2. (Deckeltitel). Berlin, Duncker, ca. 1860-1875. Quer-kl.-fol.

Zt. mit reicher Goldprägung auf dem Vorderdeckel u. goldgeprägtem Rückentitel ("Rheinland II"); etw. fleckig, Gelenke repariert. Von 1857 bis 1883 veröffentlichte Duncker 960 Ansichten der Burgen, Schlösser und Herrensitze des Königreich Preußen. Die jährlich erscheinenden Ansichten, deren Vorlagen zum überwiegenden Teil eigens angefertigt worden waren, berücksichtigten alle Landesteile gleichermaßen. Alle Tafeln sind auf den zugehörigen Textblättern in doppelter Folge nummeriert: als Gesamtfolge und als Teilfolgen nach Provinzen. Der vorliegende Band vereinigt die Tafeln 40 bis 90 der Ansichten der preußischen Rheinprovinz. Davon entfallen 18 auf den Regierungsbezirk Köln, 19 auf Düsseldorf, 11 auf Aachen und 12 auf Koblenz. Insgesamt erschienen zur Rheinprovinz 120 Ansichten. Eine genaue Auflistung der Ansichten folgt - auch wenn es etwas langweilig wirken mag - am Schluss. ***** Zum Zustand: Die erläuternden Texte und die Trägerkartons sind - wie fast immer - durchgängig stockfleckig. Die Ansichten selbst sind davon kaum oder gar nicht betroffen. Bei wenigen der Textblätter sind die Nummerierungen vom Buchbinder weggeschnitten worden, das letzte (zu Tafel 90) fehlt. Die Reihenfolge der Tafeln ist mehrfach etwas durcheinander. Ein Drucktitel ist nicht vorhanden. Ansonsten handelt es sich um ein gutes Exemplar der seltenen Folge. ****** Auflistung der Ansichten entsprechend der Nummerierung (entspricht nicht immer der Abfolge im Band): 40. Gnadenthal. - 41.
