        Quadrupeds of North America

      1860 - AUDUBON, John James and BACHMAN, John. The Quadrupeds of North America. New York: George R. Lockwood, [1860]. Three volumes. Royal octavo, contemporary three-quarter green morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $19,000.Handsome Lockwood octavo edition, illustrated with 155 magnificent hand-colored lithographic plates of American mammals from the polar bear to the buffalo.Having built his reputation with the legendary Birds of America, Audubon began an equally imposing project: to capture on paper the astonishing variety of American mammals. Many of the beautiful hand-colored plates are justly famous, including the polar bear, the American buffalo, and the jaguar. Bachman, Audubon’s long-time collaborator, said of the Quadrupeds, “They are the most beautiful and perfect specimens of the art. I doubt whether there is anything in the world of natural history like them, I do not believe that there is any man living that can equal them” (Ford). The octavo edition of the Quadrupeds, first published by Victor Audubon in 31 separate parts between 1849 and 1854 (as well as in book form those same years), was reissued in 1860 and 1870 by George Lockwood, who had come into possession of the original stones. This present edition is the 1860 imprint, retaining the original Introduction in Volume I (dated 1846), with “1849” on the copyright pages and without Lockwood’s Preface (which appeared in the later edition and is dated 1870). Bannon & Clark, 76. See Ford, 217. Plate impressions fresh and colors true, contemporary morocco bindings handsome. A fine set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        UTAZAS KALIFORNIA DELI RESZEIBEN

      Pesten [i.e. Budapest], 1860. Original tan pictorial boards, recased. Boards a bit soiled. A touch of light foxing, else very clean internally. An attractive copy. Hungarian Janos Xantus was one of the pioneering ornithologists of California. The present book is the second of two Hungarian publications by Xantus, providing an account of his travels in California and Baja. The other volume, LEVELEI EJSZAKAMERIKABOL..., was also published in Budapest in 1858 and describes his travels throughout the United States. Howes calls that volume, edited by the "incompetent" Istvan Prepost, an "unauthorized" edition of Xantus' letters describing his travels in North America. The letters in this volume focus on California, Baja and Alta, and provide descriptions of California's geology and climate, native Indians, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, San Fernando, Mojave, Fort Tejon, and several places in Baja, including La Paz and Loreto. The plates show Mission San Fernando, Indians working in a blacksmith shop at the mission, a female Indian working a loom, Indians at Tejon, a vista of the Sierra Nevada, a view of a large terraced building at La Jolla, and more. The map shows California from San Francisco south to the tip of Baja. Involved in the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, Xantus came to the U.S. at the end of 1851 and worked as a topographer on the Pacific Railroad Survey, then as a member of the U.S. Coast Survey. He was stationed in California during the coastal survey, and while there made valuable collections of birds for the Smithsonian Institution, including many new species, some of which were named after him. Later he was attached to the U.S. Navy and commanded an expedition to make meteorological observations in certain parts of the Pacific Ocean. During the latter service, which concluded in 1861, he discovered eighty-nine islands and sand banks. He was appointed U.S. consul at Manzanillo, Mexico, and led a scientific research party into the Sierra Madre before permanently returning to his native Hungary in 1864. Not in Pilling or Ayer, despite the linguistic content.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Rockhill, Sydenham, 20. VII. 1860. - 8vo. 2 pp. To Lady Eagerton, explaining that "You can get from here to the [Crystal] Palace to see the fancy fair, & if you like to ask half a dozen gentlemen to come to the dance we shall be happy to see them, they must be at Rockhills by about eight o clock from whence they will be passed to the Ball room [.]". - At the end of the Great Exhibition of 1851 the Crystal Palace was dismantled from Hyde Park and re-erected at Sydenham. Covering eighteen acres and one of the greatest design and engineering feats of the 19th century, it unfortunately burnt down in 1936. Ruskin rather loftily called it a "greenhouse larger than ever greenhouse was built before".

        AN ORDINANCE TO DISSOLVE THE UNION BETWEEN THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA AND OTHER STATES UNITED WITH HER UNDER THE COMPACT ENTITLED "THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

      [Charleston, S.C., 1860. Stained along the left edge. Wrinkles and old folds. Heavily tape-repaired on the verso. Good. In a half morocco box. A very rare draft printing, likely the earliest printing, of the South Carolina Secession Ordinance, apparently printed for the use of the seven-member committee appointed to draft the ordinance by which South Carolina seceded from the Union, precipitating the Civil War. It is thus one of the most important printed documents of the entire Civil War. After Lincoln's election South Carolina moved vigorously to follow through its threat to secede from the Union. A secession convention was called, and assembled at Charleston on Dec. 17, 1860. Their entire business was to debate the issue of secession, which they favored overwhelmingly, and to settle on the wording of a secession ordinance. The ordinance drafting committee created the present text, and within three days the 169 members of the Convention voted unanimously for the ordinance. This is the printing of the ordinance that was made for the use of the seven members of the committee appointed to draft the secession ordinance, and is likely its earliest printing. The ordinance is set up in the form of a "slip bill" or "reading bill," familiar to most delegates as the typical form of a legislative bill in working draft, with the body of the text in numbered, double-spaced lines to facilitate the making of corrections. Textually, it is identical to the final draft version of the ordinance as distributed to the members of the full secession convention for their final vote. It differs slightly from that later printing in form, however: the present version is printed in a much plainer manner, and does not italicize the title of the ordinance or the preamble, as is found in the later printing. Also, in the title of the ordinance "America" is hyphenated "Ame-rica," indicating the work of a printer who was not as concerned with aesthetic appeal as they would have been for the final product presented to the full convention. Though without an imprint, this version was likely printed by Evans and Cogswell, who were printers to the secession convention. Following the title given above, the text reads: "We, the People of the State of South Carolina, in Convention assembled, do declare and ordain, and it is hereby declared and ordained, That the Ordinance adopted by us in Convention, on the twenty-third day of May, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-eight, whereby the Constitution of the United States of America was ratified, and also, all Acts and parts of Acts of the General Assembly of this State, ratifying amendments of the said Constitution, are hereby repealed; and that the union now subsisting between South Carolina and other States, under the name of 'The United States of America,' is hereby dissolved." Presumably only a small number of copies would have been printed for the use of the seven-member ordinance drafting committee, and we are aware of only three other copies that have survived. One of those is in the Robert Barnwell Rhett papers at the Charleston Museum, and contains marginal annotations, presumably in Rhett's own hand. Rhett was a member of the secession ordinance drafting committee. There are also copies at Emory University and at the College of Charleston. Parrish & Willingham and Crandall both locate a copy at the Huntington Library, but according to the Huntington Library catalogue their holdings are of two, different, later printings of the secession ordinance. We are not aware of any copies of this first draft printing of the South Carolina Secession Ordinance to appear in the market. By comparison, a copy of the "slip bill" version that was presented to the consideration of the full convention was sold by this firm to collector Jay Snider and reappeared at his auction at Christie's in 2005, where it sold for $66,000.

        REMINISCENCES OF AULD LANG SYNE [manuscript title, including a chapter of adapted California Fiction entitled "WESTWARD HO"]

      Camp Nusseerabad, India., 1860. Original three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Boards edgeworn and lightly rubbed. Internally quite clean, neat, and legible. Very good. An interesting unpublished manuscript, this is a novel in the form of an autobiography, purportedly written by an American-born soldier in the British Army stationed in India in the late 1850s and early 1860s. The author describes his youth and early adulthood, culminating with an account of his adventures hunting grizzlies in Gold Rush-era California. The chapter on Grizzly hunting in California, called "Westward Ho," is copied (with a few small adaptations) from an article that appeared in the November 1857 issue of HARPER'S NEW MONTHLY MAGAZINE, called "The Grizzly Bear of California." The remainder of the text develops several themes over the course of the work, including the author's strained relationship with his wealthy father, his youthful disillusionment with a career as a lawyer, his friendship with a charming rogue named "Twadle," and his unsuccessful pursuit of love. The work also gently lampoons the character of the idle rich. It is unknown whether these other portions of the manuscript are also adapted from other published works, or whether they are the product of the author's own imagination. Either way, this manuscript is a very interesting example of mid-19th-century imaginative fiction and literary adaptation, and worthy of further study. According to prefatory material, this text was written in 1859-60 by Douglas D. Lindsay, who identifies himself as a member of Company 7 of Her Majesty's 83rd Regiment, stationed in East India at "Camp Nusseerabad." On a preliminary page he writes: "These 'Reminiscences of Auld Lang Syne' were written and presented by the author to his friend and gossip, Thomas Smith of Her Majesty's 83rd Regiment and who, in times to come, as he glances over these pages, will recall to mind the writer and 'wish him well, wherever fate may have led him'; and he, in turn, will often think of his quondam friend, while far at sea or in the deep piney woods of his native land." In several instances in the text, Lindsay disrupts the narrative to offer asides to Smith, providing a sort of post-modern authorial commentary on the proceedings. In a letter at the end of the text, dated July 23, 1860, Lindsay promises Smith that he will write a second volume "in which I propose giving you a few more passages from my experience in America - North - West and South, intermixt with some jottings about the sea, slavers, smugglers, etc. etc." It is not known whether "Lindsay" ever wrote this second volume. In the prefatory chapter Lindsay gives a sketch of his early life, claiming to have been born "of a very ancient family who are said to be descended in right line from the Prodigal Son." He writes that he did not have a good relationship with his father, and most of the assistance in his life was given to him by his deceased mother's brother. Lindsay says he eventually went to "the law school of old Y..." (later revealed to be Yale), from which he graduated with a lofty idea of the law and jurisprudence. These beliefs were quickly deflated when he moved to the unnamed state's capitol city and set to work as a lawyer. Finding himself quickly in debt and unhappy, he quit the law and moved back home. The next chapter in the book is entitled "A Screw Loose" and begins with Lindsay arguing with his father and being kicked out of the house. He departs, leaving behind him most of his expensive wardrobe, and ventures out in search of a friend named Twadle: "A young literary gentleman who was continually occupying the handsomest apartments he could find which he invariably vacated after a month of luxury. He was of a sanguine temperament and I will do him the justice to say that he always intended at the time of taking his rooms to pay for them. But so many extraordinary and unforeseen circumstances intervened between the day of his induction and pay-day, that when that period arrived he regularly found himself in a state of unprecedented pecuniary depletion." Twadle was living in New York at the time, and he and Lindsay decide to have a meal at Delmonico's. Of course, they do not have enough money to pay the bill, but Lindsay is rescued by his ever-helpful uncle, who just happened to be dining there that evening. His uncle then takes Lindsay to his home, welcomes him as a part of the family, and gives him a job in his engineering firm. In the next chapter, titled "Love Struck by Lightening," Lindsay describes his landlady's attempts to introduce him to eligible young women, and his courtship with Sophia Walter, daughter of a former governor. The romance fails when Lindsay discovers that his love has false teeth, which horrifies him. The penultimate chapter (comprising forty-one pages of the manuscript), entitled "Westward Ho," is set in California during the Gold Rush era, and is largely copied or adapted from a HARPER'S article of November 1857 called "The Grizzly Bear of California." Large portions of the manuscript are copied verbatim from the published article, while in other places Lindsay makes adaptations or particularizes the story to himself. For example, he mentions a "Hindoo Bear" in one passage, and changes the name of the Grizzly hunter from "Colin Preston" in the published article to "Nathan Walker" in his manuscript. He also intersperses original passages which add to the story, among the copied text. The section begins with Lindsay and a friend leaving Manhattan aboard a steamer bound for Chagres, and then crossing the Isthmus of Panama. Lindsay then goes up the coast to Acapulco, where he "secured passage in a crazy old polacca rigged schooner which was bound direct to San Francisco." The schooner is wrecked off the California coast, with Lindsay as the only survivor. Next comes a long discussion of the California Grizzly, and the "coastal range" in which it dwells, followed by a recounting of Lindsay's providential escape from the shipwreck. He is rescued by a bear hunter called "Nathan Walker" ("Colin Preston" in the original HARPER'S story), a native of Arkansas, who is described at great length. The rest of the chapter is filled with tales of Walker's bear-hunting exploits, discussions of the nature of the Grizzly, and the recollection of bear hunts in which the author participated with Walker, often at great risk to his own life. In the final chapter (comprising twelve pages and called "The Man in the Drab Coat") Lindsay tells a story of meeting an old Yale classmate of his in the Russian River gold diggings. His friend, Robert, had been quite successful in the mines, saving some $5000, but was gravely ill and soon died. Lindsay promises him that he will collect all his money and deliver it to Robert's mother in the East. On his way home, Lindsay stops in New Orleans and loses all of his own money in the gambling halls, and leaves the city saddled with debt. Back in Troy, New York he considers drawing on his friend Robert's money, using it as a gambling stake to win back the money he lost in New Orleans. Late one night, cold and seemingly hallucinating, he is visited by a devilish figure, "the man in the drab coat," who so frightens Lindsay that he resolves to give all Robert's money to his family, as he had promised. An interesting work of adaptive and imaginative fiction, meriting further research.

Brayton was stolen near his home in Ohio in 1825 and sold to the Pottawatomi, who took him to Michigan, where he lived among the Winnebago, Chippewa, and Sioux. The latter took him west, where he was again sold, this time to the Snake Indians, who adopted him into their tribe. Brayton apparently lived among the Snake on the upper Missouri River, following them to California, where he remained some five years. He describes fighting the Blackfeet in Oregon, as well as his extraordinary thirty-four years of wandering all over the West. He finally reconciled himself to civilization, enlisted in the army in 1861, and was killed at Pittsburgh Landing in 1862. "Extraordinary as the incidents appear, there is abundant proof of its entire truth" - Thomson. "It is quite true that it would not have been possible for Brayton to have made some of the movements described among the tribes named. On the other hand the critics have overlooked the fact that Brayton was taken at the age of seven and lived among the Indians for thirty-four years. He could not read or write, and spoke English with some difficulty...There remains not the slightest doubt that Matthew was a Brayton, and his narrative is, in general, correct" - Wessen. "One of the most remarkable and - in spite of its relatively late publication date - one of the rarest items belonging to captivity literature" - Howes. This account is sometimes attributed to John H.A. Bone, who may have assisted Brayton in setting forth the narrative. An extraordinary account, rarely met with, and hardly ever encountered in an original binding.

Im Text wird jedes Einzelbild kindgerecht erläutert, gemäß dem im Vorwort zu Bd. 1 vorangestellten Satz: "Dieses Bilderbuch soll kein Spielwerk sein, dazu ist es zu ernst; aber auch kein Lehrbuch, dazu ist es zu bunt und zu heiter; sondern . eine gemalte Welt". Die Aktualität der Darstellung ist ein wichtiger Bestandteil. Kinder sollen ihre Umwelt wiedererkennen können. So hat die Technik selbstverständlich in die Darstellungen Einzug gehalten, aber auch die Kleidung der Menschen ist "modern" (falls historische Darstellungen dies nicht verbieten), und in den verschiedenen Auflagen des Werks ist festellbar, dass z.B. die Frauenmode immer wieder auf den Stand der Zeit gebracht wurde. - Titel von Tl. 1 mit Fehlstellen in den Rändern, fleckig u. ganz aufgezogen u.

        Chamonix. Traversée de la Mer de Glace. Photographie originale.

      S.d., vers 1860-70, - 22.5 x 13.5 cm, montée sur carton (39 x 26.5 cm). Un précieux document de l?état du glacier vers 1870. Aujourd?hui, au même endroit, il ne reste qu?une moraine. La Mer de Glace est le deuxième plus important glacier des Alpes, après le glacier d'Aletsch. En longueur, ce glacier est toutefois devancé, outre le glacier d'Aletsch, par le glacier de Fiesch situé en Suisse. La Mer de Glace présente un attrait touristique certain: les touristes peuvent y accéder aisément grâce au chemin de fer du Montenvers inaugurée en 1909. Le site du Montenvers, situé un peu en amont de la langue terminale du glacier, offre un excellent point de vue sur la Mer de Glace. Aux XVIIIe et XIXe siècles, le glacier descendait jusque dans la vallée, au niveau du village des Bois. Pour cette raison, il se nommait glacier des Bois, appellation qui subsiste encore parfois de nos jours. Notons toutefois que le glacier des Bois désignait surtout la partie du glacier qui s'épanchait dans la vallée. En 1741, deux voyageurs britanniques, William Windham et Richard Pococke se rendent au Montenvers, et baptisent du nom de Mer de Glace la partie « haute » du glacier. Aujourd'hui, la partie « basse » du glacier a complètement disparue. L'épaisseur du glacier était également beaucoup plus importante. Cela permettait de le traverser assez facilement au niveau du Montenvers, pour atteindre l'autre rive (droite), aujourd'hui rendue beaucoup plus difficile d'accès. On y faisait même passer des troupeaux, qui rejoignaient ainsi ses alpages situés en contrebas de l'aiguille Verte et des Drus, via un passage escarpé sur la rive droite, appelé Mauvais Pas ou Maupas. À l'heure actuelle, le glacier perd, chaque année, de 4 à 6 mètres d'épaisseur et une trentaine de long. Entre 1905 et 2005, la mer de Glace a perdu 120 m d'épaisseur.Photographe genevois important du XIXème siècle, mais quasiment oublié, Auguste Garcin est surtout actif dans le domaine de la photographie touristique, produisant des vues des sites les plus visités de Suisse, Savoie, et Midi de la France. La Suisse, la Savoie (indépendante jusqu'en 1860), les Alpes, le Midi de la France, ainsi que la mer, font partie du circuit touristique européen emprunté par les classes bourgeoises enrichies grâce au commerce et à l'industrie, à une époque où le chemin de fer a réduit les distances sur le continent.

        CATLIN THE CELEBRATED INDIAN TRAVELLER AND ARTIST, FIRING HIS COLT'S REPEATING RIFLE BEFORE A TRIBE OF CARIB INDIANS IN SOUTH AMERICA

      London, 1860. A few repaired tears. Very good. An excellent and rare color lithograph featuring George Catlin firing a Colt repeating rifle. When the United States Senate rejected an 1852 bill proposing the purchase for the nation of George Catlin's "Indian Gallery," the artist was bankrupted and lost virtually all of the paintings and drawings that he had used in his exhibitions. In order to raise funds Catlin proposed an expedition to market Samuel Colt's firearms. Colt was eager to publicize his new revolving pistols and rifles and to have them adopted by the United States Army, and he commissioned Catlin to "paint a series of twelve pictures showing Colts being employed in the field. The terms of their agreement are unclear, but Catlin completed the order by 1857, and the Colt Patent Fire- Arms Manufacturing Company subsequently used the paintings in its advertising" (Dippie). "Six of the paintings were turned into lithographs, but few sets seem to have been made" - Miles & Reese. The set, all drawn in Catlin's distinctive style, show the artist using Colt firearms in the wilds of both North and South America. The plates were printed in London by Day & Son, the best known British lithographic printers of the period; Catlin's images were drawn on stone by J. M'Gahey of Chester, England. These prints are not in any of the standard bibliographies, and the only other recorded holdings are in the Colt Firearms Collection (Connecticut State Library in Hartford), the Amon Carter Museum, Yale University (the Paul Mellon set), and the Wadsworth Athenaeum. Text beneath the image reads: "It having been reported by one of my party that I had a Medicine Gun, which would fire all day without reloading, the Men, Women & Children, assembled in front of the Chief's Lodge to get a sight of it, - when I found it necessary to make an exhibition - and arranged a target at a suitable distance whe[re I to]ok my position / in front of the crowd rapidly discharging all the chambers, and cocked the piece for a continuation, but the chief advanced and assured me they were all satisfied, and I had better save my powder and balls, as I might want them, on a very long journey.

First Edition. - Gustav Theodor Fechner (1801-1887) "founded the science of psychophysics, which applies the laws of mathematical physics to the physiology of sensation. In his Elemente der Psychophysik, Fechner placed the methodology of this new science on a sound footing by developing three of its basic methods: the method of limits (just noticeable differences); the method of constant stimuli; and the method of average error. 'His greatest contribution was his creation of a scale of sensation, a scale that measured sensation as something different from the stimulus so that the relation of the magnitude of the stimulus to the magnitude of the consequent sensation could be determined. That determination came to be known as Fechner's law., the rule that the magnitude of the sensation is proportional to the logarithm of its stimulus [S = C log R]. Theretofore there had been no strictly objective measurement, and the new scientific psychology, just ready to be founded, hailed this achievement as its warrant and safe-conduct" Herrnstein & Boring, Sourcebook in the History of Psychology, p. 67 - "In effect, a major portion of Elemente is a handbook on experimental design, the most comprehensive treatment of that topic before R. A. Fisher's 1935 Design of Experiments" (Stigler, History of Statistics, p. 244; pp. 242-254. - Garrison-Morton 4972; Norman 771 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        SPEECH OF HON. ABRAHAM LINCOLN, AT THE COOPER INSTITUTE, NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 27, 1860., VINDICATING THE PRINCIPLES OF THE NATIONALITY OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. LETTER OF JUDGE EDWARD BATES, OF MISSOURI, ENDORSING ABRAHAM LINCOLN AND HANNIBAL HAMLIN

      [San Francisco, 1860. Printed self-wrappers. Two horizontal creases, with slight separation along the creases on the front wrapper. Center portion of front wrapper tanned. Very good. In a brown half morocco and cloth box, spine gilt. This is apparently the only contemporary separate printing of Lincoln's Cooper Union speech west of the Mississippi. The speech, given in New York in February 1860, catapulted Lincoln into the public eye and made him a viable presidential candidate. The final page carries an advertisement dated August 2, 1860 for the San Francisco Republican campaign newspaper, the MAUL AND WEDGE, which had just commenced publication. Lincoln and the Republicans narrowly won California in the 1860 election. This printing is not in Monaghan, and OCLC locates only two copies, at the California State Library and Harvard. The Boston Athenaeum catalogue notes an 1860 printing by the "Santa Cruz News, for the Santa Cruz Republican Club," but we are unaware of any newspaper by that name in Santa Cruz, California in 1860, nor does that printing appear in Greenwood.

      - Significativo lotto di 18 missive inedite, così articolato: a) un biglietto autografo di Giuseppe Garibaldi (Nizza, 1807-1882), inviato da Roma in data 19 febbraio 1873, a mò di lettera di presentazione di tal Semenza; b) 5 lunghe lettere autografe di Francesco Crispi (Ribera, 1818-1901), quattro delle quali in busta affrancata e viaggiata, inviate fra il 1872 e il 1874 a Luigi Orlando, in cui si parla di argomenti personali, di questioni economiche e di investimenti e pagamenti bancari; c) 3 lettere e un biglietto autografi, datati 1875 e 1883, di pugno di Giovanni Nicotera (Sambiase, 1828-1894) a Luigi Orlando; d) Due lettere autografe di Benigno Paraviso inviate a Paolo Orlando in data 11 e 21 luglio 1860 (una affrancata e viaggiata); e) Cinque missive autografe in lingua francese di Thomas Sterling Begbie, inviate da Londra (4, Mansion House Place) tra il 19 giugno e il 27 luglio 1860; f) Una lettera autografa, priva di data, inviata da tal Felletti [uomo di fiducia degli Orlando a Londra], in cui parla di attrezzature idrauliche per bastimenti militari. Di particolare interesse le corrispondenze di Paraviso, mercante italiano attivo a Birmingham, di Begbie, un inglese assai influente a Londra e collegato alla "British Columbia" e di Felletti: in esse si parla diffusamente di cospicui trasferimenti di armi dall'Inghilterra all'Italia. Felletti è un uomo di fiducia di Orlando a Londra, mentre Paraviso e Begbie sono due mercanti o mediatori, incaricati di trovare le armi necessarie all'impresa di Garibaldi. Scrive Paraviso l?11 luglio 1860 a Paolo Orlando, che si trova a Londra: ?La fabbrica nel Yorkshire alla quale ordinai i 14 cannoni per bastimento ora mi scrive che la sola specie che suole fare pel governo inglese sono di ferro fuso ?Cast Iron? ? Sempre Paraviso scrive il 21 luglio a Orlando, che nel frattempo si è trasferito a Liverpool: ?I 1250 fucili Enfield, le pistole e i coltelli d?abbordaggio partiranno da qui [Birmingham] senza fallo la sera di mercoledi prossimo. Faccia grazia di significarmi se per i detti fucili debbo pur?anche provvedere i fulminanti e che quantitativo?.? Intrigante anche la corrispondenza tra Begbie e Orlando: in particolare nelle missive del 26 e 27 luglio 1860 Begbie cita G.G. [Giuseppe Garibaldi] e la Calabria, ed esprime ?grand regret que le général est blessé à Milazzo? "Giuseppe Orlando di Colosa è considerato il capostipite della famiglia. D?origine siracusana ma palermitano d?adozione, possiedeva a Palermo un?officina meccanica a cui si rivolgevano gli agricoltori dell?isola per la costruzione di mulini e altre macchine agricole. Alla sua morte, avvenuta nel 1825, lascia la moglie Rosalia Castiglione e sei figli giovani; Luigi Orlando (1814-1896), Salvatore (1818 - 1881), Giuseppe (1820 - 1893), Paolo ( (1824 - 1891), Domenico (18. - 1837) e Lucia (.). Nel 1834 il primogenito Luigi Orlando aderisce alla Giovine Italia, seguito poi dagli altri fratelli. Dopo un periodo in esilio a Malta e in seguito al fallimento dei primi moti insurrezionali siciliani Luigi torna in patria e s?impegna attivamente nell?officina di famiglia introducendo la forza del vapore nella costruzione dei mulini da grano, e riscuote successo con la fabbricazione delle prime molle per materassi. Il carattere imprenditoriale orientato all'innovazione della meccanica è spesso osteggiato dai Borboni, vedendo essi nel progresso un possibile nemico. Luigi è più volte costretto a lasciare la Sicilia. Nel 1847, trasferitisi a Roma, Luigi e Giuseppe dimostrano entusiasmo verso la rivoluzione e la costituzione della Repubblica romana, portando tra l'altro con sé un tricolore, dono degli insorti palermitani, e riportandolo poi nel capoluogo siciliano. Luigi, in Campidoglio, sale in cima alla statua equestre di Marco Aurelio issandovi la bandiera italiana. Alla notizia della momentanea sconfitta del potere Borbonico a Palermo e in tutta la Sicilia in seguito ai moti del 1848, Paolo e Luigi rientrano subito e sono i 100 gr.
