        Autograph Letter Signed "C. Rigaut de Genouilly" asking "Mon cher Colonel" for Assistance with Obtaining a Pension for Mme Charbonnier, a Widow of a Naval Department Administrator].

      Paris 1860 - Paris, 14 December 1860. Octavo (ca. 24x19 cm). 3 pp. Black ink on watermarked blue laid paper. Mild fold marks, otherwise a very good letter. A private letter from French admiral Pierre Rigaut de Genouilly, the commander of French naval forces during the opening phase of the Cochinchina campaign (1858-62), which laid the foundation for the French conquest of Vietnam. Appealing to a colonel who was in connection with marshal Jacques Louis Randon, French minister of defence in 1859-1867, Rigaut de Genouilly asks him to show the minister the request (apparently about a pension) of a widow "of an administrator of the navy department, whom I knew as an excellent State servant, as a commissioner of the navy aboard many ships and as the treasurer of the Invalides de la Marine. Furthermore the widowed Madame Charbonnier is the daughter of a sea captain, who fought during the First French Empire and who I met over the Algiers expedition". Rigaut de Genouilly also mentions some of their common acquaintances, according his correspondent¿s brother who was serving on board a French naval vessel at the moment. "Rigault de Genouilly took command of French naval forces in China and Cochinchina and in 1857 held Canton with the British, who had joined France in declaring war on China. The following year, as vice admiral, he once again attacked Tourane; he was told to secure it with the forces at his disposal and he was not to negotiate with the Vietnamese. On Sept. 1, 1858, he took the city and would have proceeded to the capital at Hue, but his ships could not navigate the shallow river inland; instead, he turned south to conquer Saigon and achieved his objective with the help of Spanish troops, Feb. 17, 1859. With his men debilitated by the climate and disease, his supplies low, and no reinforcements forthcoming, he could neither consolidate his conquests nor bring the Vietnamese to surrender. The following October 20 he asked to be relieved of his post. Back in France, Rigault de Genouilly became a senator (1860), was promoted to admiral (1864), and was named minister of the marine and of the colonies (1867). In the Franco-German War (1870-71), he rejected his appointment as commander in chief of an expedition to the Baltic Sea and went to Spain to live out his years" (Encyclopaedia Britannica online).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Dor. Czermak").

      O. O. u. D. - 1 S. Gr.-8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Aus dem beiliegenden Briefe an Hrn. Braumüller werden Sie ersehen, in welche peinliche Lage mich eine Unachtsamkeit u. Übereilung versetzt hat. Ich kann als Mann von Ehre, wie Sie begreifen werden, nun nicht mehr daran denken, die Unterhandlung mit Hrn. Braumüller zu dem gewünschten Ende zu führen. Gegebene Versprechen darf man nicht brechen - freilich soll man gegebene Versprechen auch nicht momentan vergessen. Das ist wahr [.]". - Czermak war als Professor für Physiologie in Graz, Krakau und Pest tätig. 1860 setzte er seine wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen in einem Prager Privatlaboratorium fort, folgte 1865 einer Berufung an die Universität Jena und lehrte seit 1870 in Leipzig. Czermak führte neben dem Stirnreflektor die Laryngoskopie in die praktische Medizin ein und legte seine Forschungsergebnisse in der Schrift "Der Kehlkopfspiegel und seine Verwertung für Physiologie und Medizin" (1860) dar; neben seiner bahnbrechenden Anwendung des Kehlkopfspiegels begründete er die Rhinologie als neues Spezialgebiet und stellte Photographie wie Stereoskopie in den Dienst dieser jungen Fächer.

        Clover Nook, Auckland N.Z. Original pencil sketch tipped on to a scrap album sheet, ca. 1860.

      - 12.75 x 8.5 cms. Delicate sketch of a cottage with verandah, 2 stories, a picket fence, and part of a house next door. Gillies Ave, Lot 21 was originally purchased as a crown grant in 1845 by William Swainson, the Attorney - General; sold to John Stokes 1848, and then to Andrew Buchanan in 1857. "Clovernook" was constructed between 1857 - 1859. Charles Stitchbury purchased the property in 1861, and enlarged the home in 1864. The land was subdivided in 1906, creating Clovernook Rd. and was demolished in the 1960's for construction of a viaduct. This sketch appears to be of the original cottage, and appeared in a scrap album on the same sheet as an albumen photo of Fijian Natives & hut, ca. 1860. Paper is watermarked 1836 with the name " J _ _ _EN & SON ", possibly J. Sheen & Son. A charming and carefully executed sketch.

        Manuscript map of Roxbury Vermont

      [ Roxbury, Vermont ], 1860. First Edition. Good. First Edition. An inked manuscript map of Roxbury Vermont on a thick blotter like paper. 17 x 14 1/2 inches edge to edge. There are four large edge chips ans some water damage, affecting the content. It includes 176 identifiable names laid out in a mostly square grid pattern. There are another 30 or so names that are partially missing or have water staining making clear reading difficult if not impossible. There are, in addition to inked names, penciled numbers in some grids - the purpose is unknown. Roxbury VT was founded in August 1781. We were able to determine this manuscript map was the town of Roxbury VT by comparing the names on the map to references online and in "The History of the Towns of Plainfield, Roxbury, and Fayston [Vermont], Montpelier, VT, 1882 (a few copied pages provided with matches highlighted). The rear of the map notes "Elijah Winch Plann of Roxbury". Those same references helped us find Elijah, who was a Town Selectmen in 1851, 58, and 1860. And a constable and collector of taxes in 1843. And a "Lister" in 1845, '57, '62, and 1863. He was also a Justice of the Peace in 1850, 51, 52, 53, 57, 58, 62, and 44. Finally he was a town representative in 1854. As a Lister (definition from Colonial Occupation webpage) he would have been responsible for tracking property and related taxes. How closely this document relates to an actual layout of the town would be a fascinating research project, if comparables could even be found. A useful tool for reviewing early town layouts, genealogical records, and related scholarship.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Heidelberg u. Breslau, 14. X. 1860.. 3 S., 8°.. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - "[...] In Betreff des Spectralapparats war ich mit Kirchhoff vor zwei Monaten in München, um mit [Carl August von] Steinheil über die beste Einrichtung zu conferiren, und einen Apparat für mich zu bestellen, dessen Preis er zu 150 Gulden Rheinisch veranschlagt hat. Er wird uns den Apparat noch ehe er ganz fertig ist hierher senden, damit wir erst die nöthigen Prüfungen und Abänderungen mit demselben [?] vornehmen können.

Mit Hilfe der Spektroskopie konnten bei der Erhitzung chemischer Substanzen in Flammen die charakteristischen Spektrallinien untersucht werden. Zu diesem Zweck perfektionierte Bunsen einen besonderen Gasbrenner, der zuvor durch Michael Faraday erfunden worden war und später den Namen Bunsens erhalten sollte [...]" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. -

        Leaves of Grass

      Thayer and Eldridge 1860 - Thayer and Eldridge, Boston:, 1860. Third edition. The scarce first issue of the third edition of Leaves of Grass, with the tinted frontispiece portrait of Whitman (an engraving by Stephen Alonzo Schoff from an oil painting portrait by Charles Hine), and the printer's name on the verso of the title page ("Electrotyped at the Boston Stereotype Foundry. Printed by George C. Rand & Avery"). Third edition, expanded, first state of the frontispiece. Only 1000 copies printed. This third edition, preceded by Whitman's self- published editions of 1855 and 1856, was enlarged to 456 pages, adding 122 new poems, including "Starting from Paumanok" and "Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking," and two new sections, "Calamus" and "Children of Adam." Rebound in handsome ornately decorated leather. Rear hinge professionally repaired. The poems are arranged in 7 "clusters": 'Chants Democratic and Native American', with an introductory poem 'Apostroph'; 'Leaves of Grass'; 'Enfans d'Adam'; 'Calamus'; 'Messenger Leaves'; 'Thoughts'; 'Says'; 'Debris'; and 26 individual poems including 'Walt Whitman', 'A Word Out of the Sea' (later titled 'Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking'). The volume commences with 'Proto-Leaf', which was later called 'Starting from Paumanok'. According to the Walt Whitman archive, "The significance of the 1860 edition of Leaves of Grass tends to be paradoxical. Although the poems often express grief over romantic and professional failures, the book's new sense of structure, the sizable increase in poems, its wider readership and critical praise made it one of Whitman's most successful books. Although the poems seem more intimate and personal than previous Whitman poems, the third edition is also a deliberate intervention into public life, an attempt to realize American democratic ideals and save the Union." 8vo, iv, 456pp. $950.

        Collection of 400 Photographs from a Camden, New Jersey Family

      Camden, New Jersey. 1860-1960s. A collection of more than 400 photos from a Camden, New Jersey family including 40 Civil War-era tintypes, 30 cabinet cards, and the rest various different format photographs taken between 1900 and the early 1960s, various sizes and with a few back marks from Virginia, but most from the Philadelphia, Camden, and Trenton areas. The photos are generally very good or better with some photos clipped at the corners from mounting, wear to some of the edges, and a few of the tintypes darkening or with their finish peeling. The photos feature matron Mary A. Fleming and the extended families of her daughters Elizabeth Nardin, Bessie W. Steelman, and Emma Gordon, including their husbands, children, and relations in various formal and candid shots: posing with pets, laughing with friends, kids playing, a flood, a house being built (likely due to the flood), and others. Of note are about a dozen military-related photographs featuring: six Civil War soldiers each posing in uniform; four of World War I soldiers in formation and training; a group shot of World War II sailors posing on the deck of a ship; and four of USO entertainers performing at an army hospital. The photos are accompanied by a few handwritten notes referencing various family members, as well as what was once a red velvet photo album, now only a tattered remnant of its former self, with a handful of additional scattered photos still intact. A nice collection of photos documenting 100 years of a New Jersey family's history. .

        Political Debates between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas,

      Columbus: Follett, Foster and Company,, 1860. In the Celebrated Campaign of 1858, in Illinois; including the Preceding Speeches of Each, at Chicago, Springfield, etc.; also, the Two Great Speeches of Mr. Lincoln in Ohio, in 1859, as carefully prepared by the Reporters of Each Party, and Published at the Times of their Delivery. Octavo. Publisher's brown blind-stamped cloth,gilt lettered spine. Blue cloth chemise and slipcase. A few spots of foxing to title page. Copies in the original cloth are commonly found in shabby condition, this one is remarkably fresh and unsullied. A fine copy. First edition of the text of the debates that were Lincoln's springboard to fame. The Lincoln?-Douglas debates are unquestionably the most famous, and most important, of such confrontations to have been staged in the history of American politics. The candidates' sharp exchanges helped to polarise sectional attitudes towards slavery, and - although Lincoln lost the 1858 Illinois Senate race of which they were a part - the debates catapulted Lincoln towards the 1860 presidential nomination, and into the White House. The text of the Lincoln?-Douglas Debates was set from Lincoln's own scrapbook - now in the Library of Congress - of clippings of the candidates' remarks as reported by the Chicago Press & Tribune (for the Republican Lincoln), and by the Chicago Times (for the Democrat Douglas). When published as a presidential campaign tool in April 1860, the collected speeches became a best-seller, and by the time of Lincoln's official nomination, some 30,000 copies were in circulation. Our copy is inscribed discreetly in pencil on one of the blank leaves at the end: "George Wolford/ May - 1860"; this is almost certainly the New York Republican Assemblyman of the same name who stood in the 81st New York State Legislature in 1858, giving this copy a marvellous contemporary resonance. A stunning copy of one of the most celebrated publications in American political history.
