        A View of a Himalayan Range, Most Likely Near Simla, With Men Wearing Native Indian Dress in the Foreground].

      1860 - N.d. [ca. 1860]. Watercolour and pencil ca. 51x34 cm (20 x 13 ¼ in). The painting is on the artist's original wash-line mount on the thicker Whatman paper, and in a recent matting. Unsigned. There are some areas of browning on the upper part of the painting, otherwise a very good watercolour. The watercolour shows a mountainous landscape with gorgeous snowy peaks occupying the upper part of the view, and with a serpentine road and men wearing Indian native dress in the foreground. Most likely an area near Simla (Shimla), a favourite summer refuge for the British in India in the 19th century and the official summer capital of British Raj from 1864. Located in the north-west Himalayas at an average altitude of 2250 m (7234 ft), Simla was the star of the hill stations - mountainous resorts providing relief to British society from the heat and disease of the plains. "The Himalayan resorts were at an average altitude of six thousand feet and offered magnificent views of range after range of jagged snowy peaks. This region became a venue for leisure activities and the towns in the hills rapidly acquired the character of English villages" (British library). Drawings of hill stations' mountainous landscapes quickly became a popular pastime for professional and amateur artists: "These places appeared as a Garden of Eden to the British. Here they found relief from the poverty, disease, dirt and heat of the Plains., For both men and women, holidays in the Hills gave them unbroken leisure to sit and sketch with worries set aside, among scenes anglicised to look like home., [Simla in particular was apprehended as a place of] a grander less-tamed nature with dark woods and conifers set against a staggering backcloth of stupendous peaks" (Archer M., Lightbown R. India Observed: India as viewed by British Artists, 1760-1860. London, 1982).

        The Woman in White.

      London: Sampson Low Son & Co 1860 - Three volumes. Mixed edition, volume I first English edition and volumes II and III second English editions. viii, 316; (2), 360; (2), 368 pp. Attractively bound in recent mottled green half morocco over plain green cloth boards by Bayntun, spines with raised bands, gilt lettered to two panel, gilt decorated to others, top edges gilt. Slight fading to cloth at top edge of lower board of the first volume, a very good set. Cf. Parrish and Miller, pp. 39 & 40, referring to the publisher’s circular stating that the first edition appeared in mid to late August 1860. The second edition volumes present here were evidently issued soon after, bearing the same year of publication as the first edition. The 16 pp. publisher’s catalogue, which they call for at the end of the first edition of the third volume, is not present here: either never included or not bound in as the case may be.

        Italian Peasant Woman in Scenic Landscape

      1860. A charming image of an Italian peasant woman adorned in native dress. This stunning watercolour is a beautiful example of the peasant genre of painting that was popular during the mid-nineteenth-century and epitomized by the works of artists such as Jules Breton (1827-1906), William Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905), and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875). In this romanticized portrayal of rural life, a colourfully dressed peasant woman is pictured amidst a picturesque seaside landscape engaged in her daily chores. Works such as this not only exalted the dignified, pure life of the noble peasant, but also celebrated the beauty of the native countryside. They were most likely sold to tourists as souvenirs of their travels. Watercolour mounted on sheet of brownish-gray paper. Very good condition apart from some light soiling and minor foxing in the margins, mild rippling, and two small tears in the right margin.

Account of the exploration to the unknown Lake regions of central Africa by Burton and Speke during which they hoped to discover the "Mountains of the Moon" and the source of the Nile. From their first stop at Zanzibar they explored the coastal regions around Mombassa before returning to Zanzibar to start the next stage of exploration to Ujiji on Lake Tanganyika, a thousand mile journey that took over seven months. Physically draind and ill they returned to Kazeh to recuperate. While recuperating Burton sent Speke on a side trip to a large lake they lay north according to Arab traders. Speke found the lake and after some cursory exploration with information gleaned from the locals decided he had discovered the true source of the Nile. After his return the pair returned to Zanzibar. On Burtons's return to London he discovered that Speke had already published his erroneous conclusions and the famed dispute between Burton and Speke re the true source of the Nile developed into a bitter feud..

        Die Geschichtliche Entwickelung der National-Oekonomik und ihrer Literatur. (Theorie und Geschichte der National-Oekonomie 2. Teil).

Hardcover, later three-quarter light green cloth and marbled boards, gilt morocco label (bit rubbed) to spine; vague dampmark and sporadic foxing to first few leaves. 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).

        UTAZAS KALIFORNIA DELI RESZEIBEN

      Pesten [i.e. Budapest]: Kiadjak Lauffer es Stolp, 1860.. [10],191,[3]pp., including in-text illustrations, plus eight plates (including frontispiece) and folding map. Original pictorial tan paper 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's letters describing his travels in North America. The letters in this volume focus on California, Baja and Alta, and give 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 all the way 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 and 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.

        Extremely Rare Wide-Awakes Torch most probably used in Lincoln?s 1860 presidential campaign

      Double-swivel kerosene torch of the type used in the 1860 pro-Lincoln Republican presidential election campaign. The wooden shaft is 42.5? long (visible), 3.5? circumference, inserted into a 3.5? metal holder, upon which a double-swivel kerosene torch is mounted. Approximately 55 inches tall.Wide-Awakes were volunteer marching clubs that banded together throughout the North in support of the Republican Party during the 1860 presidential election. To generate voter enthusiasm for Lincoln, the Wide-Awakes staged dramatic nighttime parades illuminated by kerosene torches. They served as a type of self-appointed ?political police.? Wide-Awakes escorted visiting speakers to meeting places, guarded the polls, and attempted to keep order at political rallies. In their nocturnal marches, Wide-Awakes holding lanterns and torches snaked through crowds of supporters. Tightly woven hats and oil cloth capes protected them from the flames, and a red sash tied at the waist provided a splash of color. A large eye

        Partial archive of the Niemetschek-Neuling-Richter family.

      Sadska, Prague, Vienna and other places, 1784-1860. - More than 100 letters and documents by, to and about Franz Xaver Niemetschek and his family. Copious archive aquired from the direct descendants of Mozart's first biographer. While the documents contain no new information on Mozart himself, they do shed new light on Niemetschek's hitherto rather obscure biography and provide a vivid account of the life of the Viennese and Bohemian bourgeoisie during the Biedermeier period. In particular, the present material provides documentation that the musically-minded scholar Niemetschek, a pianist himself, could very well have visited Mozart's concerts in 1787 during his time at the University of Prague, thus once more fuelling the old debate whether the biographer and his subject did in fact meet. The archive comprises material from Niemetschek's lifetime and from that of his two children up to the early 1860s. A detailed catalogue is available upon request.

        Geologie Pratique de La Louisiane: 1st Ed. 2 Vols.: Vol. I, English Translation - by Henri De Sinclair, Vol. II, the original work in French;

      Paris, E. Lacroix Librairie Scientifique, Industrielle et Agricole 1860 - HARDBACKS, black cloth with gilt lettering and bands on spines, gilt embossed name of [Dr.] Hubert C. Skinner on front cover of Vol. II, Vol. I, pages 368, Original appendices A-G (in French) 197-263, [i], copy of Bulletin de la Scoiete Geologique de France, Tome Vingtieme Deuxieme serie, 1862 a 1863, printed in Paris Au Lieu Des Seances de la Societe, 1863. 542-543, [i], 27 page review, in French, of Geologie Pratique de La Louisiane, by Henri De Saussure, from Tire des Archives des Sciences de la Bibliotheque Universelle, plates 6; Vol. II, pages: lxviii, 263, plates 6, 4to. Vol. I, 197mm x 267mm (7.75" x 10.5"), Vol. II, 250mm x 255mm (8" x 10"), from the library of Dr. Hubert, C. Skinner, newspaper clipping (14.12.58) loosely inserted in Vol. II, light marginal browning and occasional light spotting to Vol. II, otherwise a very fine set. The English Translation is extremely rare, this being only one of five copies reproduced! 3.4Kg. As writes Hubert. C. Skinner, (New Orleans, Louisiana, 5th September 1972); Thomassy, a French Hydraulic Engineer, became intensely interested in the Mississippi River and Louisiana coastal plan during a visit to the area in 1858-1860, and led to the publication of Geologie Pratique de La Louisiana, in New Orleans in 1860, only a small number were printed, a few of which had the 6 plates hand-coloured, making these first editions extremely rare and difficult to find. A small number were re-issued at a later date with a paste-up change on the title page in 1861. Thomassy's work is the first to examine the origins of the salt domes of the "Five Islands" and to describe them as salt intrusions, the same with his description of the "mud lumps" at the mouths of the Mississippi. His maps were detailed, including showing changes in the coastline and delta. He returned to view the salt pits which were created at Avery Island to mine salt after the 1861-62 North - South conflict, publishing a supplement in 1863. Thomassy's work is considered the first comprehensive attempt to describe the geology of Louisiana, a massive project at that time and well worth considerable recognition. Sinclair's translation was made around 1940 under the WPA programme of the U.S. Government. It was never published and copies are rare. However, the translator's English knowledge was poor, and his understanding of Geology even less, resulting in the translation not doing justice to Thomassy's knowledge and expertise, which should be considered when the translation is being used and no published references should be made to it as a substitute for the original French edition.

        The War in Nicaragua. Written by Gen'l William Walker

      Mobile:: S. H. Goetzel & Co.,, 1860.. First edition.. Spine a trifle faded and sunned; some light offset to the title from the frontispiece; a couple of small marginal tears to the map along the mount; a very good copy, quite attractive.. 8vo, original brown cloth, gilt lettering, 431, [1], [1] pages. Frontis portrait, colored folding map of Nicaragua (approx. 15 x 16.5 inches) mounted in the rear. The firsthand account of Walker's military adventures in and brief tenure as president of revolutionary Nicaragua and the head of the nation's army, undertaken in 1854 with the support of Cornelius Vanderbilt. (After Walker's ill-advised attempt while president to take over Vanderbilt's Accessory Transit Company, Vanderbilt prevailed upon neighboring republics to overthrow Walker's regime in 1857.) This detailed account of the whole affair was published shortly before Walker left again for Central America with plans to reconquer Nicauragua, when he fell into the hands of the Hondurans and was executed in late 1860 by firing squad. (See the ANB.) With a contemporary newspaper clipping on Walker's death laid in (with traces of an old straight-pin hole to the front free endpaper and clipping where it had once been fastened).

        LISTA DE LOS TOROS QUE SE HAN DE LIDIAR EN LA PLAZA FIRME DE ACHO. PRESIDIDA POR EL ALCALDE MUNICIPAL Benemériro Sr. Coronel D. Estanislao Correa y Garay. Para el Domingo 2 de Diciembre de 1860. OCTAVAS. EL TORO. EL TORERO.

      LIMA-PERÚ 1860 - EMBLEMATICO CARTEL DE TOROS del año 1860, dando razón de 12 reses para lidiar el Domingo 2 de Diciembre de 1860, en la gran Plaza de ACHO (Lima-PERU) la más antigua de toda América y la tercera más antigua del mundo. EFEMERIDES PLAZA DE ACHO, 2 DICIEMBRE 1860, SE REALIZA UNA CORRIDA EN LA QUE POR PRIMERA VEZ UN DIESTRO ACTUA EN SOLITARIO. EL PORTENTOSO ESTOQUEADOR NACIONAL DE RAZA NEGRA ANGEL VALDEZ QUE POR ENTONCES VEIA ACRECENTARSE SU FAMA CORRIDA A CORRIDA ES EL PROTAGONISTA DE ESTA TARDE EN LA QUE TOREA, BANDERILLEA Y DA CUENTA DE DOCE ASTADOS LOGRANDO ASI UNA PROEZA SIN PRECEDENTES, con tal éxito, que salió catapultado como ídolo máximo de la afición limeña. Desde entonces su reinado se fue consolidando sobre la base de su habilidad en el segundo tercio y en la ejecución de suertes como las de el salto al trascuerno y a la garrocha, pero sobre todo por su extraordinaria efectividad en la ejecución de la suerte suprema, donde ponía de manifiesto su fuerza, valor y decisión. Otra hazaña memorable, el 24 de mayo de 1885, fue aquella de matar en esta misma vieja Plaza de Toros de Acho, con singular coraje y audacia, al célebre toro -Arabí Pachá-, y en la misma corrida a un hijo de este de nombre -Mucho Ojo-. Su fama trascendió fronteras. Textos tipográficos ornamentados con bello orlado floral xilograbado en madera, sobre papel seda azulado de la época. Formato en folio (2 hojas plegadas-con impresión por las cuatro caras) de medidas desplegados 41,5cm x 30,5cm. Precioso motivo central con toro grabado, en el centro de la hoja. Pequeña restauración profesional en esquina superior izquierda. Buen estado general de conservación. Figuraba en principio en el cartel como ESPADAS Antonio Marín, José Ortega, José Lara y Angel Valdez que se le programó como director de la cuadrilla, por lo que los hispanos Antonio Marín, José Ortega y José Lara -Chicorro- se negaron a actuar. El festejo iba a suspenderse pero Valdez habló con el empresario coronel Felipe Ruiz y le dijo que el sólo mataría a los 12 toros y además los banderillearía. Angel Valdez lo hizo. Mató los 12 toros de 12 estocadas y 1 pinchazo y como no tenía espada propia utilizo una corta y recta de propiedad del coronel Francisco Zavala. RARISIMO Y APRECIADISIMO CARTEL DE LA TAUROMAQUIA AMERICANA.

        Manuscript Log of the "Typhoon"

      Various places [Liverpool, Bombay, Singapore, Manila, etc.], july 30, 1860 - april 26, 1863. (SHIP'S LOG) Folio. Written in ink on rectos and versos of [58] leaves. Contemporary quarter calf, worn and scuffed, spine defective. Binder's ticket of a Liverpool firm on frost pastedown. A few leaves with pieces excised, with some loss. 3pp. later notes in the hands of members of the Salter family of New Hampshire, ca. 1874 . The extreme clipper ship "Typhoon"was built in 1851for the China trade by the firm of Fernald & Pettigrew of Portsmouth, NH. It was first launched in 1851 under the command of Charles H. Salter -- evidently the forbear of Commander James H. Salter, who authored this journal. The "Typhoon" was famous for its speed and power. In a memorable race around the Horn in the summer of 1851, the "Typhoon" defeated the competing clippers, the "Sea Witch", and the "Raven." As the "Typhoon" was sold to a British Company in 1863, this is probably its last journal under an American command. Appropriately, the final entry made by Salter is in Newport Harbor, April 26, 1863
