        In Congress, July 4th, 1776 : the Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America

      Chicago and New York: Horace Thayer and Rufus Blanchard, 1860. Very Good. 29 1/4 x 43 inches (broadside dimensions). Lithographed broadside attached to wooden rods ready for hanging. Some loss to borders and minor paper loss throughout, professionally conserved by Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) removing old cloth and varnish, and conserving backed with toned Japanese tissue and with edging re-attached (a full conservation report including before and after photographs will be provided to the new owner.) The earliest date on the lithograph is 1818 but the story of it's publication is much more interesting. Where we'd normally expect the copyright statement we find instead: "Copied from the Declaration of Independence in the Department of State and Published by Benjamin Owen Tyler, Professor of Penmanship, City of Washington, 1818" and then "The publisher designed and executed the ornamental writing, and has been particular to copy the Facsimiles Exact, and has also observed the same punctuation, and copied every Capital as in the original." and then on the far right hand : "Engraved by Peter Maverick, Newark, N. J." Lower left shows "Printed by Lang & Laing, 117 Fulton St. N.Y." In the center of the green ornamental border on bottom is "Published by Horace Thayer, No 18 Beekman St. New York and Rufus Blanchard, Chicago Illinois" Finally in very small type just under the vignette "First Blow of Liberty" is a caption (the real copyright notice): "Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1860 by H. Thayer in the Clerks office ... " An adaptation of Tyler's famous 1818 broadside, with Trumbull's painting inserted below "AMERICA" at the top of the lithograph, and a key for Trumbulls work at the bottom. Additionally, there is a new vignette "The first blow for Liberty" inserted above the key, in the bottom center of the facsimile signature field. Additionally, the whole is surrounded by a green border of grape vines and clusters. This presentation "amped up" the early Tyler 1818 broadside, providing it with a more visual appeal and additional marketing points. Bidwell's "American History in Image and Text" provides an interesting view into the competition between purveyors of various Declarations, something which happened from the very beginning with competing entrepeneurs trying to create (and later capitalize) on the public's love of the most visual representation they had of their new country. The fact that this highly decorative approach survived (and indeed flourished) in various forms as late as 1860 is a testament to the level of interest, and the creativity of the hucksters bent on out-performing their fellow creators. Bidwell contains has a select list of Declarations at the end, and in a note to #2 (The Tyler, page 287) he indicates he has seen a copy very similar to the one we offer here, but with a slightly different imprint (Printed by Lang & Cooper rather than Lang & Laing as here, and Thayer at No 36 Beekman rather than No 18 Beekman as here). Scarce, with six locations found in OCLC/Worldcat - mass historical, peabody essex, john carter brown, colonial williamsburg, library of virginia and the university virginia (Albert H. Small deposit).

        Two tintype stereographs taken at Saratoga Springs of Morton family

      [Saratoga Springs, ca. 1860-1875]. Images 2 3/4 x 2 1/8 in.; mounted in standard 3 x 7 card. Tintype stereographs in card viewing sleeves with gilt paint frames; stamp on recto of one sleeve, "Taken at Saratoga Springs [...] by A.E. Alden, Artist. From Providence, R.I.". In red cloth wallet, with original snap, gilt lettered "Dr. Lawrence J. Morton. Saratoga", with some internal wear; images fine with exceptional contrast for tintypes; sleeves in very good condition with just slight edgewear . Alden was active in the 1860's and 1870's with studios in Springfield, MA and Providence, RI. Here he captures members of the Morton family, in fine dress; they are most likely on holiday enjoying Saratoga's races and spas. Iron was an unusual medium for the stereograph and is accordingly rare today. "The ferrotype [tintype] is the rarest form of stereograph" (Darrah, p. 16). A charming record of 19th century souvenir photography, complete with the original owner's wallet case

        ANONYMOUS WATERCOLOUR DRAWING OF DOVER FROM THE HEIGHTS BELOW THE CASTLE.

      No signature or date c.1860 - 10 x 13 inches, on thick paper. A superb Victorian watercolour of the town of Dover from below the castle looking to sea, and showing the edge of the Western Heights with the harbour in the distance. Unfinished figures sitting in the foreground give the painting a rather timeless quality - one has the feeling these people were there but are now just ghosts. The buildings are carefully observed in the pencil work underneath the watercolour which has been added in a impressionistic manner. Perhaps a preliminary sketch for a more elaborate work, our unknown artist is unlikely to have been an amateur, the work is too confident. PRINTS/MAPS DOVER PRINTS/MAPS

In about fine condition (old ownership stamp to endpaper, some pencil marking to title). Overall an excellent copy. ~ First edition. ?During the last generation, American readers of German appear to have relied, as a rule, for information about early phases of German economic thought, chiefly upon two writers, Kautz (?Die Geschichtliche Entwickelung der National-Oekonomik und ihrer Literatur?) and Roscher. Of Kautz, it is enough to say that he was of the rear guard of the rhetoricians. His book is wonderfully plausible, if not lucid, reading. Its early pages appear to express methodological conclusions which the maturest scholarship has not superseded.? - Albion W. Small, ?The Cameralists: The Pioneers of German Social Polity? (1909).

        On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection

      John Murray, London, 1860, Three-quarters leather, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 2nd EditionPUBLISHING DETAILS: Second edition, fifth thousand of Darwin's masterpiece, published by John Murray of London in 1860, the year following the first edition. 502 pages, top edge gilt, with no advertisements at the rear. Size; 20 x 14 cms (8" x 5.5"). Weight; 690g (1 pound eight ounces). CONDITION: I would rate this as very good. It is rebound in three-quarters tan leather over marbled boards with 5 raised bands to the spine, with gilt titling. There is surface wear to the leather at the hinges which are, however, firm. Also wear to the top and tail of the spine and one gilt titling panel missing (although the title imprint is still visible). The binding remains tight and secure throughout. The text and fold-out diagram are clean, bright and free from foxing, with light, even age-toning. Heresy to say so, but the text appears unread. Two small blemishes to the front pastedown. All in all, a very smart copy of this desirable early printing of 'certainly the most important biological book ever written' (Darwin Online). THE BOOK:'can we doubt ... that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?' In the Origin of Species, Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters.

        The 104th Psalm

      Henry Hering, London - An uncommon panorama with a continuous flow of changing landscapes, many of which have a bucolic element. N.d., circa 1860. Closed, oblong, 11.5 by 16 cm. 25 hand-colored panels, each 10 by 15.25 cm. Fully extended, then, the panorama is about 380 cm. Captions running across the bottom are lines from the 104th Psalm, which is loosely the springboard for the illustrations. The effect of the panorama is akin to the fabulous wallpaper panoramiques that were manufactured by French companies such as Huber and Dufour in the early to mid-19th century. In terms of the illustration, without reference to the captioned lines from the psalm, they are as much a Pantheistic celebration as a biblical religious statement. The few religious figures such as the angels actually serve to enliven things. Light wear to the moire cloth cover. Soiling on the endpapers and the title. The panorama itself is quite clean.

        Die Cultur der Renaissance in Italien

      Basel: Schweighauser Verlag,, 1860. Octavo (221 x 136 mm). Contemporary brown half morocco, raised bands to spine, titles to spine gilt, brown pebble grained boards, green endpapers. Spine sunned, extremities lightly rubbed and a touch bumped, minor wear to corners, paper of front board slightly chipped along side, inner hinges partly cracked but still firm. A very good copy. First edition. Written by Burckhardt (1818-1897) between 1855 and 1858, Die Kultur der Renaissance is a milestone in cultural history. While the author's definition and historical description of the Renaissance have been rightfully questioned, "no criticism can detract from the powerful spell which Burckhardt's book has exercised upon such widely different writers as Ruskin, Nietzsche and Gobineau, as well as upon innumerable lovers of the most magnificent period of European history" (PMM, p. 211). Loosely inserted is a newspaper clipping from the Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 11 September 1960, of an article on the book, written by the Swiss historian and Burckhardt biographer Werner Kaegi to commemorate the centenary of the publication date.

        On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.

      John Murray, 1860, Half Leather, Book Condition: Very Good Condition, Second EditionSize: 12,5cm x 19cm, Second edition, second issue (there are only a few known copies of the first issue with the title page dated 1859), with the 1860 date and "Fifth Thousand" on title page. Corrections have been made to "Speceies" on p. 20, and "Linnean" is spelled correctly on the title page. One of only 3,000 copies printed in the second edition, on January 7th 1860, after the first edition of 1,250 copies was sold on the day of publication, November 24th 1859. The second and subsequent editions also sold out very quickly. Octavo in twelves. ix, [1, "Instructions to Binder"], 502 pages. Bound without the half-title page. Folding lithographed diagram by William West, indicating Darwin's views of possible sequences of evolution, facing p. 117. Modern three-quarter green crushed morocco over green cloth, gilt decorative rules to covers, spine in six compartments with five raised bands and decorated and lettered in gilt. Paper slightly browned with light foxing on title and preliminary and terminal leaves, occasional light foxing and marginal soiling to sheets. A few marginal pencil marks. Overall, an excellent copy, in a handsome and appropriate binding. One of the most influential scientific works of the nineteenth century, On the Origin of Species was (and still is) one of the most controversial. In it, "Darwin not only drew an entirely new picture of the workings of organic nature; he revolutionized our methods of thinking and our outlook on the natural order of things. The recognition that constant change is the order of the universe had been finally established and a vast step forward in the uniformity of nature had been taken" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Dibner 199 ("the most important single work in science"). Freeman 373 ("the most important biological book ever written"). Garrison and Morton 220. Grolier, 100 English, 96.
