      Currier and Ives, New York 1860 - Currier and Ives “Husking” Eastman Johnson, New York: 1860 Hand-colored lithograph 37” x 44” framed The publishing firm of Currier & Ives created the most popular and highly regarded lithographs of quintessentially American scenes ever produced. The quality, vast scope and engagingly populist style of their works have made their names synonymous with an idealistic vision of 19th-century American promise and optimism. Nathaniel Currier began his lithographic career as an apprentice in 1828. By the mid-1830’s he had established his own firm on Spruce Street in New York City. In 1857 James Ives became a partner in the flourishing business, which went on to produce over 7,000 lithographs by 1907. Currier & Ives was undoubtedly the most prolific firm of lithographers in America, its output greater than that of all the other firms combined. The remarkable scope of this production was matched by the company’s ability to anticipate popular themes and subject matter. Among their many works are lithographs depicting sporting, railroad and rural scenes, marine, and western views, as well as foreign and domestic city views, historical tableaux, and a wide range of sentimental, morally instructive and advertising images. Currier & Ives’ broad productivity was accompanied by consistently high standards of printing and hand-coloring, and their ability to draw on original works by many of the finest American genre painters of the times, including (among many others) Fanny Palmer, Louis Maurer, Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait, Charles H. Parsons and George Durrie.

      1860 - In Three Volumes. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1860. 16 pp Vol III undated ads. Original blind-stamped cinnamon-brown cloth. First Edition. This is the sad tale of Maggie Tulliver, from the Dorlcote Mill on the Floss River -- a novel noteworthy more for its accurate depiction of rural characters than for its rather drastic solution to an intricate plot. The novel also helped to break new ground in what was "acceptable" fare for reading: on a boating trip Maggie is "innocently but irremediably compromised" by her cousin's fiancé -- a fate to be shared by Thomas Hardy's TESS over thirty years later. ~This copy does not have the preliminary ad leaf in Vol I; according to Carter this is the first state, as the leaf was inserted in later copies to be issued. The volumes are in Carter's binding 'B', with the Edmonds & Remnants binder's ticket (the 'A' binding, identical except for the spine gilt, typically was by "Burn & Co."); Carter "hypothesizes" that 'B' might have followed 'A', but leaves it open to question. Also, this copy's Vol III ads cite the "Seventh Edition" of ADAM BEDE, while some copies have ads citing the "Eighth Edition."~This is a near-fine set, bright and attractive, with scarcely any external wear or soil (the slightest of wear at the foot of two spines, one small rub in the centerof one spine). The inner hinges (endpapers) are expertly and almost-invisibly strengthened with the addition of matching yellow-coated paper in the gutters; the endpapers themselves are the originals. The volumes are tight, there is no foxing on the leaves, and the gilt on the spines remains unusually bright. The first edition of THE MILL ON THE FLOSS is not all that scarce, but it is becoming quite difficult to obtain in this condition. Baker & Ross A5.1.a(1); Sadleir 816a; Wolff 2060; Carter BV pp 110-1 (& plate VIII). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The front cover of volume XII has come loose but is repairable. Illustrations by George Cruikshank, H. K. Browne.The collection is in VGC for its age with light shelf wear. A collectable and scarce early edition of The Works of Charles Dickens. Please note: This is heavy set(approx 22 Kg). Books sizes: 7.9 x 4.9 inches. This is another paragraph The books are as follows: The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club ( 2 volumes, no date given but probably 1867), Nicholas Nickleby(2 volumes, dated 1869), Martin Chuzzlewit(2 volumes, dated 1969), Old Curiosity Shop & Reprinted Pieces(2 volumes), Barnaby Rudge(2 volumes including Hard Times), Sketches by Boz,Oliver Twist(dated 1868), David Copperfield(2 volumes,dated 1870), Pictures from Italy, Bleak House( 2 volumes,dated 1867), Little Dorrit( 2 volumes, dated 1862 & 1867), Christmas Books(dated 1868), Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations( dated 1866), Our Mutual Friend(2 volumes, dated 1869), Dombey and Son(2 volumes, dated 1868).The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club includes Charles Dicken's preface("in his preface to the 1867 edition, Dickens strenuously denied any specific input, writing that "Mr Seymour never originated or suggested an incident, a phrase, or a word, to be found in the book."). Also, on the second page of the The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club volume I, it is printed: The Best Edition of my Books Is, Of Right, Inscribed to my Dear Friend John Forster, Biographer of Oliver Goldsmith. Many Patient Hours he has Devoted to the Correction of the Proof Sheets of the Original Editions; And in Affectionate Acknowledgement of His Councel, Sympathy, And Faithful Friendship During My Whole Literary Life. This is another paragraph Later Editions: Upon completion of serialization the works were issued as complete novels in one to three volumes with original, and in some instances, additional illustrations. Starting in 1847 the older novels were reissued in what was called the Cheap Edition, these were published in weekly and monthly parts, and then as complete novels. Eventually all of Dickens' novels were reissued in the Cheap Edition. The concept of the Cheap Edition was similar to today's practice of reissuing hardback novels as more affordable paperbacks. Other editions published during Dickens lifetime include the Library Edition: a high quality set published without illustrations in 1858/59. This set was reissued between 1861 and 1874 with illustrations and was called the Illustrated Library Edition. In 1867 the Charles Dickens Edition was released. This edition featured new prefaces, written by Dickens, who also made minor corrections to the text. Chapman and Hall produced the Peoples Edition in 1865-1867, these were inexpensive monthly installments of the novels aimed at travelers in the very popular bookstalls popping up in railway stations all over Britain. Dickens' works were also published in America, sometimes simultaneously with the British edition and often with little or no compensation to the author or his publishers due to the lack of an international copyright law. Dickens campaigned unsuccessfully for international copyright [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Longman, Green, Longman, and Roberts, London 1860 - 276 x 197 mm (10 7/8 x 7 3/4"). xvi, 239, [1] pp. Translated and edited, with additions, by Richard Pigot. First Edition with these Illustrations. FINE CONTEMPORARY GREEN STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, covers framed by multiple rules and wide, ornate dentelle, the whole enclosing a detailed Greek urn centerpiece, raised bands, spine densely gilt in compartments featuring many small botanical and floral tools, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. With allegorical frontispiece featuring a portrait of Cats, 60 large tondo emblems, and 60 tailpieces by John Leighton and others after Adriaen van de Venne. Front flyleaf with ink presentation inscription, "Wilhelmina Colquhoun Jones / 1863 / with Charlotte Harriet Jones' / Love and best wishes" (see below). Spine darkened to an olive brown (as almost always with green morocco), just the faintest hint of wear to joints, occasional minor foxing or stains, but AN EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE COPY, the very decorative contemporary binding bright and scarcely worn, and the text very fresh and showing no signs of use. This is a beautifully bound, attractively illustrated, and very well-preserved copy of an uncommon Victorian book featuring emblems produced by the Dutchman Jacob Cats and the Scotsman Robert Farley in the 17th century. Each entry, devoted to a particular virtue, opens with a Cats emblem and closes with one by Farley, with numerous quote from philosophers and poets of all eras appearing between the two. A statesman of considerable importance, Cats (1577-1660) has long been considered Holland's household poet, having written a large quantity of insightful and charming philosophical verse, including some of the most important works of emblematic literature produced in the Netherlands. Farley (or Farlie) is an obscure figure known best for his "Lychnocausia," published with 58 full-page emblems in London in 1638. Leighton's interpretations of the illustrations by van der Venne (1589-1662) retain the charm of the originals, which include engravings with allegorical pictures and epigrams, sometimes freighted with mystical profundity, but also winning scenes of life, full of the fascinating detail of costume, architecture, furnishings, recreations, social intercourse of several kinds, and all the other varied physical and interpersonal dimensions of living. Former owner Wilhelmina Colquhoun Jones (1841-1910) likely received this as a wedding gift for her 1863 marriage to Edward Talbot Day Jones, apparently from a relative--perhaps a sister--of her new husband. Whoever Charlotte Jones may have been, she was important enough to the couple that they named their first daughter, who grew up to be the historian Helen Charlotte Foxcroft, for her. The especially handsome binding here is unsigned but is exactly the kind of thing Hayday was producing during its best days. For more on Leighton (1822-1912), see next entry.

        Portrait of Dominic Charles Colnaghi and his wife Catherine Pontet.

      London, ca. 1860. original photograph, carte de visite, albumen print, 10 x 6 cm. - P & D Colnaghi. - Colnaghi's impending retirement to Italy was postponed when his son Martin sued both his father and his brother Dominic (1790 - 1879) in 1824. The settlement of the lawsuit left Martin with the old shop. Martin became bankrupt in 1832 and 1843, and died in 1851, but his son (also Martin) continued the separate business in Pall Mall. Paul and Dominic Colnaghi moved to Pall Mall East - near the nascent National Gallery - and Paul Colnaghi continued to work in the business until he died in 1833. Caroline Scott's son, John Anthony Scott, joined Dominic Colnaghi in the business in 1839. Scott commissioned William Simpson to go to the Crimea in 1854 to make watercolour sketches of scenes from the Crimean War, published as a series of 81 lithographs in The Seat of War in the East. The gallery also sold photographs by Roger Fenton. After this early experience with photography, the gallery commissioned Leonida Caldesi and Mattia Montecchi to take photographs at the Art Treasures Exhibition in 1857, published in Gems of the Manchester Art Treasures Exhibition in 1858, and Colnaghi published artistic photographs by Julia Margaret Cameron from 1864. The firm was associated with John Constable, assisting him to exhibit The Hay Wain at the Paris Salon in 1824, where it won a gold medal. The art dealership organised exhibitions for the British Institution, and of paintings by Eugène Delacroix in 1829. After Scott died in 1864, and Dominic Colnaghi retired in 1865 and died in 1879, Scott's cousin Andrew McKay became sole proprietor. He was joined by his son William KcKay in 1879. - - - - Dominic Colnaghi married Catherine Pontet (d. 1881) on 15 October 1831, and they had two sons, neither of whom entered the firm, but the elder, Sir Dominic Ellis Colnaghi (1834 - 1908), became a consular official; posted to Florence in 1865, he served as consul - general for northern Italy from 1881 to 1896, and wrote A Dictionary of Florentine Painters from the Thirteenth to the Seventeenth Centuries, which was edited by P. G. Konody and Selwyn Brinton and published posthumously in 1928 (reprinted 1986). Leonida Caldesi (1823 - 1891). Leonida Caldesi was born in Florence, Italy in 1823 and arrived in England as a political refugee around 1850, though whether he was a photographer at this time is not clear. His brother Vincenzo (1817 - 1870) served as a major on the staff of the Italian patriot and revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807 - 1882). - Comparatively little is known about Caldesi's career though he was one of the leading London photographers during the 1850s and was acknowledged by contem­poraries as one of the foremost photographers of fine art from the 1850s to the 1870s. He had a number of short - term professional partners including Mattia Mon - tecchi (1858 - 59), Blandford (1861 - 62) and Lombardi, though throughout his career he maintained a business relationship with the print publisher and art dealer Paul and Dominic Colnaghi. Caldesi had important dealings with the Royal Family as well as three major public art collections in London; The National Gallery, the British Museum and the South Kensington Museum. He also carried out society portraiture and worked for learned societies and private collectors. - In August 1854, probably as part of a project lead by Paul and Dominic Colnaghi, Caldesi had requested per­mission to photograph the Raphael Cartoons at Hampton Court though he did not carry out his campaign until 1858 when he photographed in tandem with the South Kensington Museum's photographer Charles Thurston Thompson [qv]. - 1857 was probably the most important year in Caldesi's photographic career. In May Caldesi and his professional partner Mattia Montecchi, a compatriot who travelled to England with him, were summoned to Osborne on the Isle of Wight to take a series of photo­graphs of the Royal children. His growing reputation was sufficient for him to be established in April on the premises of P&D Colnaghi by John Scott, one of the firms' partners, and by June 1857 this establishment was noted in the columns of the Art - Journal. Colnaghi was to remain the primary publisher of Caldesi's reproduc­tions of works of art. - Although Caldesi specialised in the photographic re­production of works of art, his core business was centred on society portraiture and he exhibited several of these at that year's Art Treasures exhibition in Manchester. Caldesi and Montecchi also were engaged to photograph many of the paintings exhibited at this seminal exhibition. Along­side Robert Howlett [qv], they produced the majority of the 200 photographs for the two - volume 'Ancient' and 'Modern' series of Photographs of the Gems of the Art Treasures Exhibition, Manchester. Caldesi found difficulty in photographing some of the paintings in Manchester and successfully negotiated with the Royal Collection for some of its works to be subsequently moved outdoors to be photographed. - In the summer of 1857 Caldesi and Montecchi photo­graphed a smaller exhibition of portraits of Mary, Queen of Scots held at the Archaeological Institute, London. Theseat were published in 1858. - In 1859 The Gallery of the Most Noble The Marquess of Hertford, K. G., a selection of Caldesi's photographs from the Manchester exhibition, was published. At that year's exhibition of the Societe francaise de Photogra­phie Caldesi and Montecchi exhibited twenty - one pho­tographs of paintings displayed at the 1857 Manchester Art Treasures. Caldesi advertised a studio at Porchester Terrace in London's Bayswater and he began carrying out photo­graphic work for Prince Albert's Raphael Collection project. Perhaps as a result of this commission, Caldesi recorded the paintings in Buckingham Palace and was given permission to remove them to his studio. These photographs were published by P&D Colnaghi as the Royal Collection of Pictures at Buckingham Palace, and comprised forty small Albumen prints mounted on cards with printed captions that credit Caldesi, Bland - ford & Co. as the photographers, Montecchi having disappeared from the scene. This publication may bear the hand of the Prince Consort. Caldesi received further royal patronage that year when he was commissioned by Grand Duchess Marie of Russia to photograph the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum and he exhibited some of these views the following year at the Photographic Society's exhibition in London. - Caldesi advertised in the influential Athenaeum in the early 1860s stating that he personally took carte de visite portraits at 13 Pall Mall East, the Colnaghi premises, while 'portraits, Carriages, Horses, &c.' were taken at the branch studio at 6 Victoria Grove, Kensington. He photographed a number of prominent people including Sir Charles Eastlake, director of the National Gallery. In 1864 Caldesi published carte de viste portraits Giuseppe Garibaldi and his fellow patriot Giuseppe Mazzini (1805 - 1872) during their visits to London. - During the 1860s Caldesi also produced cartes de visites of paintings though it appears that he did not use the stereoscopic or Cabinet formats to any significant degree. - In 1860 Caldesi carried out a photographic campaign in the National Gallery in London, exhibiting some these photographs of paintings at the 1861 exhibition of the Societe francaise de Photographie. Between 1868 and 1873 The Pictures by the Old Masters in The National Gallery, a series of photographs of 360 paintings, was published by Virtue & Company. At this time Caldesi photographed a number of paintings in the Gallery on behalf of the director Sir William Boxall (1800 - 1879). - During the 1860s Caldesi was to carry out photo­graphic campaigns to record important private art col­lections such as the Farnley Hall collection of drawings by J. M.W. Turner These photographs, published by Colnaghi in 1864, seem to have had little impact and were not reviewed by the contemporary press. Another Colnaghi publication of 1864 was the Photographic Historical Portrait Gallery, which required Caldesi to photograph just under 200 Albumen prints of Tudor portrait miniatures. - An account of the latter years of Caldesi's life has yet to be assembled. Photographs by Cave. Leonida Caldesi, of Ancient Marbles, Bronzes, Terracottas, & C, & C. in the British Museum was jointly published with Colnaghi's between 1873 - 1874 but the photographs may have been taken some years before. Caldesi ap­pears to have returned to Bologna in around 1870 and died there in 1891. (Anthony Hamber). - Gernsheim 220: (...) Although it is marked Vol. I, no more were published.

        THE ISLAND OF ANTIGUA. Revised by J.W. Norie, 1827

      Antigua [but actually Philadelphia]: R.B. Eldridge & Co., [ca. 1860].. Lithographic sheet map, 20 1/2 x 26 1/2 inches. Backed with contemporary blue paper. Light foxing and toning. A few small tears in margins. Very good. An unusual lithographic edition of Norie's 1827 revision of this handsome chart, lithographed by Wagner & McGuigan in Philadelphia. A statement in the cartouche reads, "Presented by R.B. Eldridge, Antigua, to Captain Andrew Tyler." The captain's name is accomplished in manuscript. R.B. Eldridge is not listed in Tooley's Dictionary of Mapmakers and appears to be unrelated to known chart publisher George Eldridge. It seems most likely that he was rather an Antigua merchant who commissioned a re- print of the chart for complimentary distribution to sea captains. A handsome piece.

        A Midnight Race on the Mississippi

      New York: Currier & Ives, 1860. AN ICONIC IMAGE OF A STEAMBOAT RACE ON THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER Paper size: 23 3/4" x 33" The Mississippi riverboat was second only to the cowboy as the quintessential American product. Indeed, Gulf Coast steamboats achieved such international popularity that wagers were placed as far away as Berlin and Vienna on the outcomes of the famous steamboat races down the Mississippi. Besides their profound economic and technological importance, steamboats also figured as important thematic elements in nineteenth-century European and American art, literature, speech and song. For example, within the works of Joseph Conrad, Charles Dickens, Edna Ferber, Jack London, Herman Melville, Eugene O'Neill, Robert Louis Stevenson and, of course, Mark Twain, steamers served variously as symbols for the contemporary pride and progress in technology, as metaphors for the conflict between man and nature, and as elements of plot and setting.This work wonderfully encapsulates the period of the steamboat's transportational and cultural dominance in the United States, a position soon to be usurped by the mighty railroads. .

        The Autocrat of the Breakfast-Table

      Boston: Ticknor & Fields, 1860. PRESENTATION COPY - ARTHUR SWANN'S COPY WITH HIS BOOKPLATE. 1 volume, illustrated, inscribed on the half-title by Holmes which reads "Ms David,/ old friend "Lucy Stimson"/ from Oliver Wendell Holmes/ Sept. 15th 1860." Bound in the publishers pebble grained brown cloth, covers stamped in blind, mild overall handling, housed in a 1/2 brown morocco slipcase, ribbed gilt decorated spine. This work was first published in 1858 and is one of the elder Holmes' more popular literary works. The work is a series of essays. A heterogeneous collection of boarders gather around a table, providing an audience for the wit and philosophy of the Autocrat. The essays take the form of conversations that generally develop into monologues. Cleverly and epigram-matically, the seemingly disconnected, is unified by the recurring themes and personalities.

      San Francisco: Britton & Rey, 1860. A SUPERB IMAGE OF THE OVERLAND ROUTE BY PREMIER WESTERN LITHOGRAPHY FIRM, BRITTON & REY Chromolithograph Framed size: 34 5/8" x 41 3/8" Sheet size: 20 ¾" x 27 3/8" ca. 1860 Literature: The American West, Vol. V, No. 4, July 1868 This spectacular chromolithograph is an excellent example of the work produced by Britton & Rey, and served as the cover image of the July 1968 issue of The American West: The Magazine of the Western History Association. The work depicts the quintessential symbol of the American West: the stagecoach. The particular vehicle shown in this print was operated by Barlow & Sanderson, a big-time stagecoach operation that worked the Kansas City-Santa Fe lines, the California & Oregon line, and in the Colorado Mining region. Passengers on this journey included a woman with a parasol, a number of gentlemen, Chinese workers, and a child, merely a sampling of the diverse faces who populated and visited the American West. The travelers are seen traversing in front of a stunning mountain, likely Mount Shasta in California, and across a beautifully verdant and wooded landscape. The scene rendered in this lithograph was originally produced by Aaron Stein, an executive of Wells Fargo. . Book.

        View of Michigan Avenue &c

      Chicago: Charles Shober, 1860. SPECTACULAR CIVIL WAR ERA VIEW OF CHICAGO BY EDWIN WHITEFIELD Hand-colored lithographs From: Whitefield's Views of Chicago 1860-1863 Paper size: 16" x 21 1/2"; framed size: 25 1/2" x 31" Edwin Whitefield was born in 1816 in East Lulworth, Dorset, England. His father was a schoolmaster, and it is believed he was taught at home and had no formal education. In 1837 Whitefield immigrated to the United States. During his first years he was an agent for Godey's Magazine, traveling to Troy, NY and Baltimore, MD. He also taught school and added to his income by sketching and painting watercolor views of Hudson Valley estates. Whitefield began to experiment with lithography in 1842, and became most well known for his views of urban cities. He published two large prints of Albany and Troy, NY in 1845. From 1847 to 1852 he traveled through Canada and across the northern states collection views which he published in Original Views. This lithograph View of Michigan Avenue &c. was done when the artist was living in Chicago from 1860 to 1863. During these years he published a series of seven scenes of the city in Views of Chicago. Whitefield exhibited at the National Academy of Design from 1852 to 1854. His works are now preserved at the Boston Athenaeum, the Boston Museum of Fine Art, the Minnesota Historical Society, and the Shelburne (VT) Museum.. Book.

        H.M. Brig Pilot. To the Commander and Officers of H.M. Brig Pilot This Print is respectfully dedicated

      Edmund Fry & Son, Edmund Fry Junr, London & Plymouth 1860 - A fine ship portrait of the brig Pilot, by one of the most successful marine painters of the latter part of the 19th century. Sir Oswald Brierly, after an adventurous early life when he emigrated to New South Wales and took part in a number of exploring expeditions, returned to Britain in 1851. He recorded the French and English fleets' operations in the Baltic during the war with Russia, and developed a close artistic association with the British Royal family. Upon the death of Schetky in 1874 he was appointed marine painter to Queen Victoria, and at the same time was made marine painter to the Royal Yacht Squadron. He was eventually knighted in 1885. Tinted lithograph, coloured by hand, after Brierly, printed by Day & Haghe.

        Autograph letter signed, with instructions to Messrs Harper & Co. to send out copies of The Lake Regions

      Panama: , 1860. One page quarto, 23 lines in Burton's hand, subsequently annotated in two other hands. Lightly browned, light creases from old mailing folds, docketed verso. A letter from Burton sending out presentation copies of his most recent book following his sojourn in the American West. He asks his publishers to "oblige" him "by forwarding (for my expense) copies of The Lake Regions to the following directions and by letting me know what my bill for them to you is … [list of three names in Canyon City and Virginia City, Utah Terr.; and 5 names in California] … the latter to be addressed in the care of Wm. Lane Booker Esq. H.M. Consul, San Francisco, Cal. Believe me ever, yours sincerely, Richd F. Burton." The postage amounts in each case have been added and tallied, with a note in another hand to charge both books & postage. One of the recipients is a judge in Carson City, a place described by Burton as being full of "legal vultures — attorneys, lawyers, and judges … In and about Carson City a dead man for breakfast was the rule" (Rice). Burton sent this letter to his American publishers from the "horrible, wet, dull, and dirty" town of Panama. He was about to return to England.
