        Caravan Routes Through the Pamirs to Yarkand. Manuscript Letter to Captain Peter Stark Lumsden Expressing Thanks for His Sketch of the Caravan Routes. The Letter Dated Murree 1860

      Assistant Quarter Master General, Indian Army, Murree 1860 - A manuscript letter signed E H Davies, Secretary to Government Punjab dated Murree, 6th August 1862 and addressed to Captain Lumsden, Assistant Quarter Master General of the Army expressing the appreciation of the Lieutenant Governor [Sir Robert Montgomery KCB] for his sketch of caravan routes from oral information furnished by Mohamed Amin. The letter is written on two sides of a small bifolium watermarked 1859 and pasted to one side of an old album sheet by the unwritten page. The reverse of the card has, inter alia, a small newspaper cutting noting that by Order in Council No 162 of 1857 Brevet Major H B Lumsden, 59th NI commanding the Corps of Guides and Lt P S Lumsden, 60th NI DAQMG of the Army and Surgeon C L Cox are placed at the disposal of the Foreign Department. Scarce reference to the work of a Pundit in Central Asia. The Quarter Master General's office was, at this period, much involved in map making and intelligence gathering in connection with the perceived threat to British India posed by Russian activity. The two brothers were sent by the Political Department on a special mission to Afghanistan in 1857/58. Size: Quarto

        Recollections of the Druse of the Lebanon and Notes on Their Religion

      London: John Murray, 1860. First edition. viii, 122, [2] pp. 8vo. Contemporary half calf, spine gilt and lightly sunned, extremities a little rubbed. A very good copy of the scarce first edition. Canarvon served as Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies in 1858-59. Prior to that he visited Syria and Lebanon in the spring of 1853 with Lord Sandon, en route "towards the more eastern parts of Asia Minor." This work begins with an account of the trip where he visited Beirut, Deir el Kamar and Mouktara, before discussing the Druses, who reside primarily in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. In addition to the description of the religion, Canarvon considers their role in the recent disturbances in Lebanon and their role in the Syrian question.

        Boxing: The 1860 Championship Fight

      New York.: New York Illustrated News.. 1860.. Thirteen issues of the weekly "New-York Illustrated News" for 1860 with copious illustrations drawn by Thomas Nast documenting the bare-knuckle prize-fight between John Heenan and Tom Sayers in Farnborough, England, in which the American Heenan (dubbed the Benicia Boy) was pitted against the British pugilist Sayers. The competition ended after more than two hours when the spectators swarmed into the ring in defense of the badly pummeled Sayers, at which point the match was terminated with referees declaring a draw. The newspapers, 16 pp in length, measure approximately 16 x 12 inches. Three of the thirteen issues are missing several pages (see below). Likely of greatest interest is the issue labelled simply May 1860 (no specific day provided) picturing the two pugilists on the front cover, shaking hands, and a two page centerfold showing the match (17 April 1860) in progress. Extensive text provides "Rules of the English Prize Ring" with a history of prize fights; additional columns report on "Progress of Pugilism in the United States." The fight itself is reported, blow by blow, in over three columns of text. The speed with which the illustrations reached readers of the Illustrated News is trumpeted in text beginning on the first page: Nast reportedly finished the centerfold illustration "within seven hours." The illustration was hustled to Southampton, where wood engravers cut about half the block, the rest being completed on the New York bound ship, allowing for immediate publication of the image upon arrival. "American enterprise has probably never been carried to so extraordinary an extent, nor culminated so successfully." Dates and contents of the remaining issues are given below. March 10, 1860. Half-page portraits each of John C. Heenan ("Champion of the American Prize Ring") and Thomas Sayers ("Champion of the English Prize Ring"). Light tan spotting to Sayers. Half page cartoon on rear cover depicting "The Eagle and the Lion," fists flying. Text reports: "The Illustrated News, alone, will present genuine sketches of the International Combat, no other American illustrated journal being represented in England." March 24, 1860. An installment of the serialization of the career of actress "Adah Isaacs Menken, the Wife of John C. Heenan, the Benecia Boy." This was a bigamous "marriage" on the part of Menken, who in 1861 created a sensation in the play Mazeppa, in which she appeared nude (a flesh colored body stocking) strapped to the back of a horse that carried her up a ramp and off-stage. Also, a paragraph on Thomas Nast, in England to provide illustrations of the Heenan/Sayers competition for the Illustrated News. March 31, 1860. Front page illustration of Thomas Sayers, standing next to his Champion's Belt, watch and chain, and numerous trophies, and an article pertaining to Sayers. Another installment of the serialization of the career of actress "Adah Isaacs Menken, the Wife of John C. Heenan, the Benecia Boy." April 5, 1860. Front page illustration of Nast being received by Heenan at his residence in Wiltshire, where the athlete was in training for the contest. Facsimile letter from Heenan to the Illustrated News attesting to Nast's "very correct" illustrations, and a full page of Nast's correspondence to the editors, recounting incidents of travel. April 14, 1860. Front page illustration depicting Thomas Nast being received in the residence of Thomas Sayers plus illustrations of "the colors" (banners) of each contender. Full page Nast illustration of Sayers' "Residence and Training Quarters" at Newmarket. A large study of Sayers "in his white flannel training costume" on last page. Another installment of the serialization of the career of actress "Adah Isaacs Menken, the Wife of John C. Heenan, the Benecia Boy." April 21, 1860. Half-page illustrations of "Supper at the House of Thomas Sayers" and Sayers with his trainer "taking their daily walk." Also, notes as recorded by Nast regarding Sayers and his residence. Missing pp 363 and 364. April 28, 1860. Front page illustration of Harry Brunton, the "proposed second for Tom Sayers" on the front page, and multiple illustrations over two pages showing sites in London relevant to the upcoming match and "Heenan's Parlor" in his farmhouse residence as rendered by Thomas Nast. PP 375 through 378 missing. May 5, 1860. Twelve pages only, lacking first four pages and text relating to the centerfold illustrations. These depict the arrest of the "Benicia Boy," ostensibly to keep him from competing in the illegal pugilistic contest with English champion Tom Sayers (which had unfolded on 17 April, more than two weeks prior to this illustrated report). May 12, 1860. Front page illustrations show the contestants preparing for the competition and the field where the match was held. Much duplicity was involved to mislead the police, who were intent on scuttling the match. The contest is described from beginning to end in text extending to five columns. A half page illustration depicts Sayers visiting the office of the news journal "Bell's Life" three days after the fight, while above this illustration, Heenan is shown recuperating in bed following the contest. Four and a half columns are devoted to "A Graphic Description of the Great Fight!" June 30, 1860. Front page illustration of Heenan and Sayers "The Champions of England" each wearing the the Champion Belt. A two page centerfold depicts the "Presentation of the belts to Heenan and Sayers at the Alhambra Palace in London," while three columns provide comment on the event and record for posterity orations delivered upon the occasion. July 7, 1860. On the front page, tucked between headlines relating to the Grand Ball to the Japanese Embassy and a view of Auraria, in the Pike's Peak Gold Region, was a banner representing "The Belt of the Champion of England, presented to John C. Heenan." August 25, 1860. A short piece extols "Muscular Christianity" in the face of those clerics who would denounce contests such as the Heenan/Sayers competition, while an illustration covering the bottom half of two pages at center depicts an exhibition at Jones' Wood, NY, on the afternoon of August 13, a mimic recreation of the Heenan/Sayers fight in England. Heenan represented himself, while Charles Ottignon performed the role of Sayers. The two shook hands "Then came the set-to, consisting of seven rounds, occupying seventeen minutes." At the reception following, Heenan was presented with a check in the amount of $10,000. The newspaper concludes: "The whole affair was most completely successful." This collection of weekly newspapers presents a compelling pictorial and descriptive account of events leading up to and including the notorious bout, as well as related activities that followed, thus comprising an uncommon record of boxing's first ever "World Title" International Match. .

        Bildnis eines Knaben, Büste im Dreiviertelprofil nach rechts.

      - Bleistift, weiß gehöht, auf graugrünem Papier, rechts unten signiert, bezeichnet und datiert „Preller fe. Roma, d. 2. Januar 1860", links unten bezeichnet „Domenico Antonio Murgiotti di Picinescu.", unten mittig alter handschriftlicher Besitzvermerk mit zartem Bleistift „Elise Sigismund. Weimar d. 6. Sept. 1881". 44,5:35 cm. Entlang des linken Randes leichte Papierverfärbung, wahrscheinlich ein Wasserrand. In Begleitung seiner Frau Marie, seines Sohnes Friedrich und der Freundin Olinda Bouterweck brach Preller am 25.09.1859 nach Italien auf. Als Standquartier in Rom wurde eine Wohnung bei dem Maler J.M. Wittmer (1802-1880) in der via delle quatro fontane später in der via Porta Pinciana bezogen, von dort aus erfolgten Reisen in die Umgebung von Olevano und nach Neapel (vgl. I. Weinrautner: Friedrich Preller d.Ä. (1804-1878). Leben und Werk, Münster, Diss., Univ. Bonn, 1996, S. 74). Hauptzweck dieser fast eineinhalbjährigen Italien-Reise war, Studien für seinen zweiten berühmten Zyklus der Odyssee-Wandbilder anzufertigen, ein Auftrag des Weimarer Großherzogs Karl Alexander. In seinen Tagebuchaufzeichnungen erwähnt Preller diesen Knaben wie folgt: „Am Morgen des heutigen Tages hatten wir einen schönen Knaben gezeichnet, der so reizend ist, daß wir Alle in ihn verliebt sind. Wo träfe man bei uns auch eine so noble Erscheinung. Der Bengel ist zwölf Jahre alt, lieblich und liebenswürdig zum Entzücken und dabei geweckt und gescheit. Er ist aus den neapolitanischen Bergen, trägt sein schönes Kostüm, aber könnte auch jeden Augenblick einen Prinzen vorstellen, denn Alles an ihm trägt den Stempel seltener Noblesse." (zit. aus: O. Roquette: Friedrich Preller. Ein Lebensbild, Frankfurt a.M. 1883, S. 214 f.). Das auf der Zeichnung erwähnte Dorf Picinesco liegt im Bergzug Ciociaria, der sich von Frosinone Richtung Nordwest nach Latium hinzieht. Er gehörte zum Zeitpunkt der Entstehung der Zeichnung zum Königreich Neapel. Elise Sigismund (1860 Scheibe/Kreis Rudolstadt – Weimar 1938) gehört nicht in das nähere Umfeld von Preller. Wahrscheinlich ist sie verwandt mit Ernst Sigismund, der in den 20er und 30er Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts Quellenmaterial zu den Dresdener Malern des 19. Jahrhunderts besaß und zahlreiche Beiträge zum Thieme/Becker lieferte. „Wenig bekannt ist Prellers umfangreiches Schaffen als Porträtist. Bereits sein erstes eigenständiges Gemälde, der Eislauf auf dem Schwansee, erregte mit den lebensnahen Bildnissen seiner Freunde das Interesse der Betrachter. Aus seiner Studienzeit in Antwerpen sind einige Bildniszeichnungen seiner Kommilitonen überliefert, besonders aber in Italien war sein Talent gefragt. In den Museen in Weimar und Heidelberg sowie in Privatbesitz haben sich rund 230 Bildniszeichnungen erhalten. Bei der Mehrzahl der Porträts handelt es sich um spontan entstandene Gelegenheitsarbeiten für die Familie und Freunde Prellers. Da Zeichner und Modell einander bekannt waren, sind die Arbeiten in der Mehrzahl nicht bezeichnet und daher oft nicht zu identifizieren." (zit. aus: Weinrautner 1996, S. 97). Wir danken Prof. Dr. M. Lehmann, Konz-Könen, für seine Hilfe bei den Recherchen zu dieser Zeichnung (Brief vom 10.11.2010). Bereits im Alter von 10 Jahren begann Friedrich Preller, dessen Talent von seinen Eltern gefördert wurde, mit Studien an der Weimarer Zeichenschule. 1818 setzte er bei dessen Direktor, dem Maler und Kunstschriftsteller H. Meyer (1760-1832), einem engen Freund und Mitarbeiter Goethes, seine Malstudien fort. 1821 – er hatte sich Geld durch Kolorieren von Stichen für F.J.J. Bertuch (1747-1822) verdient – ging er nach Dresden. Hier begann er mit dem Kopieren von Altmeistergemälden aus der Dresdener Galerie. Erste Fahrten mit anderen Kunststudenten zum Studium der Natur in die nähere Umgebung Dresdens folgten. Durch Goethes Vermittlung – Preller war inzwischen dessen Schützling geworden – lernte er auch C.G. Carus (1789-1869) kennen, der ihn künstlerisch anleitete. Goethe selbst beauftragte Preller nac

        The Pictorial Edition of the Works of Shakspere

      London: Charles Knight and Co.,, [c.1860]. Edited by Charles Knight. 8 volumes, quarto (240 × 162 mm). Twentieth-century burgundy half morocco, titles and roll to spines with raised bands, matching cloth boards, marbled endpapers and edges. With numerous engravings. Some occasional light foxing, spines a little faded and corners slightly rubbed, an excellent set. An attractively bound set of Shakespeare's works. The publisher and writer Charles Knight (1791?-1873) was already a Shakespeare lover and bibliophile in his teens, when he owned an imperfect First Folio which he made up by printing the missing pages from a facsimile edition. "[H]is first major project as an author took shape in 1837, when he resolved to produce a pictorial edition of Shakespeare's works. He started searching for 'authentic' visual materials and began a critical reading of the texts. His edition was based substantially — indeed, too substantially — on the first folio edition, although he made comparisons with other quartos and, in some cases, with originals in the British Museum. His background reading led to a deep interest in Shakespeare's life and the edition, published between 1838 and 1841 (he published six later editions of the works of Shakespeare), was prefaced with a one-volume biography [actually the biography was issued last, in 1843]. Knight succeeded in contextualizing Shakespeare's life as no biographer except Nathan Drake had done, and in dismissing a couple of the more absurd legends surrounding the playwright's early life" (ODNB).

        Catlin the celebrated Indian traveller and artist, firing his Colt's Repeating Rifle before a tribe of Carib Indians in South America

      London: Day & Son, 1860. Hand-finished colour-printed lithograph, drawn on stone by J. M'Gahey of Chester after George Catlin, printed by Day & Son, within a lithographed thin single line border printed in ochre, with lithographed title printed in black beneath. Sheet size: 18 x 25 1/8 inches. A scarce print from the rarest of Catlin's pictorial publications. 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 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."

        Sketches of Camp Boone. The First Encampment of the Kentucky State Guard; held near Louisville, from August 23rd to August 30th, 1860. Also, photographic views of the camp, and Portraits of the General's Staff

      Published by G. T. Shaw for Garrett & Nickerson, Photographists, Louisville 1860 - (10 x 7 3/4 inches). 27, [1]pp. plus 9 oval salt paper print photograph portraits mounted on one sheet with printed captions, 11 salt paper print photograph views of the camp, with rounded corners mounted on 11 sheets. Contemporary half red morocco over marbled paper covered boards, rebacked to style, original patterned paper endpapers. Housed in a black morocco box. Provenance: William J. Adams (pencil signature on title dated 1860) Very rare early photographically-illustrated work, depicting military camp life on the eve of the Civil War in Louisville Kentucky. On March 5th, 1860, fore-seeing the coming of an armed conflict, the Kentucky State Legislature organized the Kentucky State Guard. By early spring the officers had received their commissions, with Simon Bolivar Buckner named Inspector-General with the rank of Major General. On August 23, 1860 the Kentucky State Guard assembled for the first time on the grounds of the South-Western Agricultural Association in Louisville, naming their camp for famed Kentuckian Daniel Boone. Seeing a commercial opportunity, Louisville photographers Garrett & Nickerson captured the week-long event. The preliminary text in this work gives a detailed record of all the orders given during the first encampment, as well as a complete roster of the officers. The illustrations within the work are all salt paper prints from collodion glass negatives by Louisville photographers C. Alfred Garrett and George H. Nickerson. The nine officers depicted on the first page of photographs are: Major General S. B. Buckner, Colonel Frank Tryon, Colonel Benjamin Hardin Helm, Colonial Isaac W. Scott, Colonel Charles D. Pennebaker, Colonel Samuel Gill, Major James A. Beattie, Captain Philip Vacaro and Rev. James Craik. The views comprise (titles as per captions listed on the final page of text): 1) First View of Camp Boone, looking North 2) Second View of Camp Boone, looking North-East 3) Dress Parade 4) Guard Mounting 5) Visit of the Governor to Major Hunt 6) Street Scene after Parade [#1] 7) Visit of Commissioned Officers to Capt. Hayes 8) Street Scene after Parade [#2] 9) Visit of the Governor to Col. Frank Tryon 10) Meeting of Officers after Parade 11) Street Scene after Parade [#3] At the start of the Civil War, border-state Kentucky vowed to stay neutral. It was not long, however, before the state legislature moved to side with the Union. Nevertheless, many of its citizens, and many of the soldiers in the Kentucky State Guard, sided with the Confederacy. Indeed, the Confederates formed their own Camp Boone in Tennessee to attract the well-trained Kentucky militiamen. This included Buckner, as well as Captain John Hunt Morgan, the infamous leader of the Morgan Raiders. Interestingly, the final image within the work would seem to depict Morgan's men, as one of the crates in the foreground is labelled "Lex. Rifles", after the name of Morgan's company (the Lexington Rifles). Thus the present work, depicting the Kentucky State Guard in August of 1860, inadvertently captures the images of many soon-to-be soldiers in the Confederate Army. Photographically-illustrated works from this early period were seldom printed in large quantities. That fact, coupled with the destruction caused by the Civil War in the years immediately following the publication has made this work very rare. OCLC cites but two known examples (University of Chicago and University of Kentucky); an additional example is held in the Gilder-Lehrman Collection at the New York Historical Society. This example with provenance to William J. Adams, who would go on to serve as a private in company A of the 3rd Regiment, Kentucky Infantry during the Civil War. A significant photographic incunable. Not in Truthful Lens. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Catlin the celebrated Indian traveller and artist, firing his Colt's Repeating Rifle before a tribe of Carib Indians in South America

      Day & Son, London 1860 - Hand-finished colour-printed lithograph, drawn on stone by J.
