        A BOY'S ASCENT OF MONT BLANC. With a Memoir of the Author by Edmund Yates.

      London. Ward, Lock and Tyler, (1860).(1860), small 8vo, 165 x 105 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, frontispiece and 22 text illustrations, pages: xxxvi, 299, bound in original publisher's red cloth with black stamped decoration to spine and upper cover, illustration and lettering in gilt with a green and a blue initial to upper cover, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, all edges gilt, brown coated endpapers. Rebacked expertly with original spine laid on, new cloth showing at head and tail and on hinges, spine slightly darkened, spine gilt dull, small dark stain at lower edge of upper cover, 3 other very small stains, endpapers chipped at edges, 2 names on front endpapers, another on reverse of frontispiece, frontispiece and title page faintly foxed, small light brown stain affects 10 pages, otherwise contents clean and bright, binding tight and firm. A good sound copy. This is not the story of a boy's ascent of Mont Blanc, rather it is a history and description of ascents of Mont Blanc for the instruction and amusement of boys, including the famous ascent by the author in 1851 which is recounted in detail. Albert Smith (1816 - 1860) had a passion for Mont Blanc and after his ascent he produced an illustrated lecture based on his experiences. This ran for six years at the Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly and made him a rich man, starting a craze for Mont Blanc. His book on Mont Blanc was originally published by David Bogue in 1852 and went into many editions. This 'Boy's' edition which is scarce was published the same year as an edition for adults also with the Yates memoir. See Neate, Mountaineering and its Literature, No. 718 and 719. See also Appendix III. 1 copy listed in Copac (Major Libraries in the UK) in the National Library of Scotland; OCLC, World Catalogue, list 2 copies, 1 in Zentralbibliothek Zürich and 1 in National Library of Scotland.

        Recent Practice in the Locomotive Engine

      Glasgow.: Blackie and Son.. First Edition.. 1860.. A publication issued in ten parts; original paper wrappers 15 x 11 inches, each part with two folding plates 15 x 20.5 inches save No. 10 which has a third plate, 15 x 10.5 inches; total 21 plates. Eighty-four pages of text, including a section "Descriptions of Large Engravings." The string binding of No. 10 perished; in addition to the last 12 pages of text this number contains the Title Page, Preface, Table of Contents, List of Plates, List of Wood Engravings, Index, and Instructions to the Binder. Light foxing to plates; text generally clean with light toning. The text on the paper wraps reads: "Recent Practice in the Locomotive Engine: (Being a Supplement to 'Railway Machinery,' Comprising the Latest English Improvements, and a Treatise on the Locomotive Engines of the United States. Illustrated by a Series of Plates and Numerous Engravings on Wood." The 20 folding plates depict locomotives belonging to railroads in England, Scotland, Egypt and the United States. The titles for the US equipment are: "Wood-Burning Passenger Locomotive by Wm. Mason & Co. Taunton, Mass. U.S."; "Passenger Locomotive by Danforth, Cook & Co., Paterson, New Jersey, for the Delaware, Lackawanna, & Western Railroad, U.S."; "American Locomotives--Cross Sections. Baltimore & Ohio Railway"; "Freight Engine, by M. W. Baldwin & Co. Philadelphia, U.S." A single page plate titled "Illustrations of American Locomotives as Carriages" depicts, through profiles rendered in outline, 36 American locomotives with the object of creating an historical overview that begins with a locomotive from 1837. A note in the final volume advises: "The plates are numbered in continuation of the Series in the Author's work on Railway Machinery," which explains numeration from 31 through 50 for the twenty folding plates. A scarce first edition, in paper wraps as issued; overall good clean condition with faults noted. .

        A day before his last Fourth of July as a U.S. Citizen, Jefferson Davis signs his autograph as Your fellow Citizen Jeffer Davis

      n.p., July 3, 1860. 4" x 2". "Autograph Note Signed ""Jeffer Davis,"" 1p, 4"" x 2"", affixed to an 8.5"" x 4.25"" light brown sheet of paper, beneath a 4.25"" x 6"" printed Mathew Brady image of Davis. Light stain at upper left. Horizontal folds not on autograph sheet.In full, ""July 3. 1860 / I am Sir very respectfully / your fellow Citizen / Jeffer Davis."" Ostensibly in response to an autograph request.At the Democratic National Convention held in Charleston, South Carolina, April 23-28, 30 and May 1-3, 1860, Mississippi Senator Jefferson Davis received 1.5 votes on the first ballot. By the 57th ballot, his total was down to 1. With no nominee, the Democrats moved their convention to Baltimore, June 18-23, 1860, and Stephen A. Douglas was nominated on the 2nd ballot; Davis had no votes.Eight days after the 1860 Democratic National Convention adjourned, Jefferson Davis wrote the note here offered. Davis campaigned for the Southern Democratic Party presidential nominee, Buchanan's Vice President, Kentuckian John C. Breckinridge who finished second to Lincoln, winning the electoral votes of nine future Confederate states and slave states Delaware and Maryland.By the Fourth of July, 1861, Jefferson Davis considered himself a citizen of the Confederate States of America. He began his February 18, 1861, Inaugural Address as President of the Confederacy, ""Gentlemen of the Congress of the Confederate States of America, Friends and Fellow-Citizens."" 117 years later, Jefferson Davis was posthumously restored to the full rights of U.S. citizenship, effective December 25, 1868, pursuant to a Joint Resolution of Congress (Public Law 95-466), approved October 17, 1978."

        Manuscript Herbarium, with Specimens

      West Virginia, 1860. Hardcover. Fine. Half gilt-ruled morocco and marbled paper over boards; 200 x 260 mm; approx. pp. 200, handwritten throughout in black ink in tidy script, plus 87 flower specimens (and one page with 9 leaves) mounted direct to the recto. Boards scuffed; spine tips and corners chipped. Internally very pretty, and specimens are in excellent condition. The work of Fanny Evelyn Chilton, with her signature and "Gilboa, Aug. 17th --60" on the FFEP. Two more hands contribute a history of this volume, on the verso of the FFEP, which reads, in part: "It came into possession of her niece Eliza Quarrier Chilton, and in the year 1921 of her grand neice Lettie Fisher Lynn of [illegible], in the state of Washington." In another hand, "I, Lettie F. Lynn pass it on to Anne Brainerd Lynn, great great great niece of Fannie Evelyn Chilton... February 1937." With the exception of these historical notes, the entire volume is in Fanny's careful hand -- the first ten pages contain a short introduction, "botanical explanations," classes and orders, orders of plants, and poisonous plants -- then the specimens follow. Specimens are labelled with the Latin and common name, the class and order, plus notes about the specimen (sometimes something about its origin, its medicinal uses, flowering habit, or connected myths) -- and Fanny has scattered quotes and poems throughout, the majority in English, with just a few in French. Includes fuschia, salvia, helianthus, oak of Jerusalem, chrysanthemum, petunia, hawthorne, primrose, and many more.

      Sydney: circa, 1860. Pencil & wash, 250 x 350 mm.; on verso in pencil 'Manly by Clara Allport about 1860', few foxing spots otherwise good condition.

Henry was elder brother of Joseph Allport who had settled earlier in Van Diemens' Land. Several of Clara's works are held in Australian institutions, this working study (larger than the finished watercolour) shows great delicacy and an eye for detail.

        Mount Tabor, Little Herman

      - Signed Lower Left: Saml Colman Medium: Watercolor on paper Dimensions: Paper size: 3 3/4" x 6 1/4"; Frame: 9 1/8" x 11 3/4" This deeply atmospheric watercolor beautifully captures a pioneer wagon train as it makes its way across the plains below Mount Tabor, Oregon. The settlers seem to have made camp surrounded by the spectacular landscape of the expansive West. The silence of the prairie, with only the whisper of windblown grasses, is spectacularly conveyed as is the majestic splendor of the infinite sky. Like so many artists that became inspired by the landscape of the West, Samuel Colman came from the east. Born in Portland, Maine, he grew up in New York City, where his father's publishing house on Broadway was a center of activity for artists and writers. His own interest in are was fostered by this early exposure to the New York art world, and after studying for a brief time under Asher B. Durand, Colman painted throughout the 1850s and 1860s in the manner of the Hudson River School. At the very young age of twenty-two, he was named an associate of the National Academy of Design, signaling the acclaim he had already achieved. In 1860, Colman departed for Europe to broaden his artistic repertoire, but it was when he first traveled to the American West, in 1866, that he found one of his greatest sources of inspiration. Spurred by the sights and expanses of the West, in the mid 1880s Colman began a series of trips out west in search of landscape subjects such as this one, done in 1888. The quiet but monumental beauty that he witnessed, and captured on paper, represents a quintessential vision of the American spirit as embodied by the country's vast landscape.

        Memoire sur la fermentation alcoolique.

      Victor Masson, Paris 1860 - First edition, unopened in original printed wrappers, of Pasteur’s definitive proof that alcoholic fermentation is due to the action of a living organism (yeast), and is not a purely chemical process as most chemists since Lavoisier had believed. "What did this memoir add to the first deductions Pasteur had drawn from lactic fermentation? He now asserted that he was dealing with a living microorganism. This was his most original contribution. Having been unable to create life or to change it by means of molecular asymmetry, he had set out to study its reproduction. In doing so he had come to a revolutionary definition: Fermentation is the act of reproduction of the living germs that constitute yeast" (Debré, Louis Pasteur (1994), p. 105)."In December 1857 Pasteur published the first in a series of abstracts, notes, and letters on alcoholic fermentation that culminated in a long and classic memoir of 1860 [the offered work]. Divided into two major sections, dealing respectively with the fate of sugar and of yeast in alcoholic fermentation, it inflicted on the chemical theory what Duclaux called "a series of blows straight from the shoulder, delivered with agility and assurance." Pasteur established that alcoholic fermentation invariably produces not only carbonic acid and ethyl alcohol–as was well known–but also appreciable quantities of glycerin and succine acid as well as trace amounts of cellulose, "fatty matters," and "indeterminate products." On the basis of these results, Pasteur emphasized the complexity of alcoholic fermentation and attacked the tendency of chemists since Lavoisier to depict it as the simple conversion of sugar into carbonic acid and alcohol. If the alleged simplicity of the process had formerly been seen as evidence of its chemical nature, he argued, then its actual complexity ought now to be seen as evidence of its dependence on the activity of a living organism. In truth, the complexity of alcoholic fermentation was such as to prevent the writing of a complete equation for it, a fact which was only to be expected, since chemistry was "too little advanced to hope to put into a rigorous equation a chemical act correlative with a vital phenomenon." "However impressive this line of attack against the chemical theory, an even more decisive mode of argument derived from Pasteur’s ability to produce yeast and alcoholic fermentation in a medium free of organic nitrogen. To a pure solution of cane sugar he added only an ammonium salt and the minerals obtained by incineration of yeast, then sprinkled in a trace of pure brewer’s yeast. Although the experiment was difficult and not always successful, this method could produce an alcoholic fermentation accompanied by growth and reproduction in the yeast and the evolution of all the usual products. If any one constituent of this medium were eliminated, no alcoholic fermentation took place. Obviously, argued Pasteur, the yeast must grow and develop in this mineral medium by assimilating its nitrogen from the ammonium salt, its mineral constituents from the yeast ash, and its carbon from the sugar. In fact, it is precisely the capacity of yeast to assimilate combined carbon from sugar that explains why it can decompose sugar into carbonic acid and alcohol" (DSB). Pp. 323-426 in Annales de chimie et de physique, Troisième Série, Tome LVIII, 1860. 8vo (226 x 142 mm), pp. 512. Original printed wrappers, uncut and unopened.

        Alphabet Lottery Cards

      Mexico: n.p., n.d. (1860's). Very good. Set of 24 lottery alphabet cards about 1½ by 3 inches, lithographed in black on white stock and mounted on stiff card. The 24 cards cover the entire Spanish alphabet, except for Rr, but are complete as issued. Each card shows a lithographed scene, sometimes attributed to Yriarte, beneath which is the letter of the alphabet, followed by a word beginning with that letter, then a humorous verse, sometimes with a play on words. The lotería is well known in Mexico, a game a bit like our Bingo but which uses cards with pictures and sayings instead of numbered balls. The players each have a card with some of the card images on them--the tabla--and they mark the drawn cards on the tabla with beans, coins or other markers. In the 1880's Don Clemente Gallo issued lottery cards in what have become more or less standard images. Earlier cards are unbelievably scarce. This set of 24 cards is complete. Even the last card shows a vendor of the uncut sheets bearing the 24 images with the caption: 'x et z estivale la geta segun dicen, lector, los colegiales Acabó el alfabeto, mas tus reales Espero sepultar en mi gareta' 'The alphabet is finished now, but your gold I hope to bury in my attic.' Lottery cards prior to the 1880s are scarce, and variants such as this alphabet set are downright rare. We have been able to find only one other set, in the Southwest Special Collections of the University of New Mexico, but no copies of the tabla with which they are associated. The possible Yriarte connection derives from the description in the University archive. Captioned in archaic Spanish.

First Edition, Second Issue. An account of Burton?'s 1856-59 expedition in company with John Hanning Speke to central east Africa in search of the the source of the Nile. Setting out from Zanzibar, the expedition endured incredible difficulties and hardships due in part to the untrustworthiness of their followers as to opposion from native tribes before arriving at Lake Tanganyika, the largest of the Central African lakes on February 14, 1858 almost eight months later. Following three months spent exploring the shores of the lake, the return journey was commenced and Speke was detached to verify reports of another lake to the northward, which he only sighted from a distance, and surmised to be the true source of the white Nile. This lake, the Victoria Nyanza, was later proven by Speke to be the source on a subsequent expedition in company with James Augustus Grant, but his surmise led to a bitter and celebrated feud with Burton. In the preface Burton dismisses Speke as being no more than a subordinate on the expedition, never having held the position of surveyor as he claimed upon his return to England. Penzer pp. 65-66.

        Autograph Letter Signed, to J. Hogarth

      [England Frame: 37.5 x 39.6 cm; letter: 17.5 x 12.5 cm.. ca. 1860?] Manuscript letter from the critic and artist to publisher and art dealer Joseph Hogarth, starting out, "I have brought you back your Lewis's, with thanks for loan of them," and continuing with a discussion of the Ruskin etchings Hogarth "may have — any of them — whenever you like" although Ruskin will "neither raise nor lower" the prices. (The list of etchings described as being enclosed has not been preserved here, but => the letter makes it clear that Ruskin would really prefer to keep them if he can't "exchange [them] for Durers.") The presentation offers the letter framed and matted alongside the envelope portion reading "Mr. J. Hogarth [/] Haymarket [/] J. Ruskin" and a portrait of Ruskin taken from a D. Appleton & Company publication. Three items as described above, in 20th-century black wooden frame, frame lightly scuffed with mat clean and well cut; Ruskin items age-toned but otherwise unblemished.
