        CATALOGUE OF FISHES, MOLLUSCA, ZOOPHYTES, &c., &c. [caption title].

      Boston. August 3, 1860. - Broadside, 14 x 9 inches. Some light foxing. Old fold lines. Some small chips and tears around the edges. Very good. Broadside advertising the contents of the tanks at the Boston Aquarial Gardens, later renamed the Boston Aquarial and Zoological Gardens. When first established in 1859 by James Cutting, the Gardens were devoted solely to marine life. In the spring of 1860, it undertook a change in direction with the inclusion of zoology, as is already evidenced in this broadside, which advertises kangaroos, bears, monkeys, rats, as well as several species of birds and reptiles. The Gardens was acquired by P.T. Barnum in the summer of 1862 and closed in 1863, its holdings relocated to Barnum's museum in New York. The contents of forty tanks are listed here, as well as fourteen cases holding zoological life. Posting open hours of 9 A.M. to 10 P.M., with a daily fish-feeding at 11 A.M., the broadside warns patrons to "always look through that part of the glass nearest the object" in order to prevent dizziness. OCLC locates only four similar items.

        Manuscript - HMS Donegal - French Intervention in Mexico

      England 1860 - United Kingdom, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean, 25 August 1860 - 12 May 1862. Manuscript logbook kept by an ambitious and diligent officer onboard the HMS Donegal, one year of which was served under the command of Arctic explorer and Admiral Sherard Osborn, conveying British troops and guns to Mexico for the War of the French Intervention. Qto. 63 pages. Volume measures approximately 19 x 23 cm. Indication of moisture to some leaves, otherwise in very good condition, bound in marbled paper wrappers representative of the period, labeled to front. Featuring one year's service in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean on HMS Donegal commanded by Sherard Osborn, together with HMS Sans Pareil and HMS Conqueror, recording daily, and sometimes hourly, the ship's course, the choice and changing of sails, coaling and loading, the order of the day, and any unusual events, this chronicle of life at sea was penned by an unidentified Royal Navy Officer whose rank appears to be that of 'Master.' In November 1861 HMS Donegal was one of a number of ships transporting troops to Mexico, and in February 1862 she assisted the recovery of equipment and stores from the wreck of her sister HMS Conqueror. Two thirds of the volume, 40 pages, document the vessel's movements under the direction of Captain Sherard Osborn, 19 pages of which pertain to the French Intervention in Mexico. Numerous other ships are named throughout, mainly British but also Spanish and French. Contemporary to the start of the American Civil War, the officer also makes note of American vessels in the Gulf of Mexico including the frigate USS Potomac attached to the Gulf Blockading Squadron. From May 1861 to June 1862, Admiral Sherard Osborn commanded Donegal in the Gulf of Mexico. On 24 July 1861 she returned to England with 36 military invalids and 6 convicts from the Gibraltar garrison, as well as three naval invalids from the St. Jean d'Acre. Returning for service in the Caribbean, on 5 November 1861 she was passing Antigua, and on the 10th Puerto Rico. On 16 December 1861 she was anchored at Port Royal in Jamaica where many other British vessels were present. From there she sailed to Bermuda, and on 24 December she was "steaming through Caicos passage." Always on the move, by the 1st of January 1862 she was moored and coaling at Bermuda, from where she also supplied HMS Nile with guns, etc. On 22 January she enters the Port of Havana in Cuba, staying there for one week, then proceeding to Vera Cruz fro provisions, then back to Havana, and so forth. The volume ends on the voyage from Bermuda to England in May. Excerpts from the manuscript: 18 May 1861.

        THE HUDSON RIVER FROM FORT PUTNAM].

      [Fort Putnam, N.Y. ca. 1860]. - Watercolor on paper, 9 3/4 x 12 3/4 inches. Laid down on modern card, matted. Signed in lower left corner: "W F Friend." Colors clean and fresh. In fine condition. A fine watercolor by Washington F. Friend of the Hudson River as seen from Fort Putnam. A single figure in a red coat in the foreground provides scale as well as a touch of contrast to the predominant brown, blue, green, and grey tones used to portray the river and surrounding woods and hills and a partially cloudy sky. Several ships can be viewed on the Hudson and a village across the river is also depicted. In the foreground on the right side can be seen part of a brick wall, perhaps part of the fort's fortification. Friend (circa 1820-86), a painter and topographic artist who specialized in watercolors, is particularly well known for his work in the American West. "After failed business, he became an itinerant artist, sketching in Utah, California, Colorado, and Montana and painted a panorama which was exhibited in Canada and the eastern U.S." - Falk. Following a three-year journey through the western United States and Canada, Friend displayed his work in panoramic form as one element in a theatrical event which included music and recitations. The show toured in the northeast and England. Upon his return to the United States, he continued to paint and exhibit his work. A fine mid-19th-century watercolor view of the Hudson River as seen from the West Point area. Falk, WHO WAS WHO IN AMERICAN ART, 1564-1975 I, p.1202. Hughes, ARTISTS IN CALIFORNIA, p.192.

        The Mill on the Floss

      Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and Sons 1860 - The complete set of this highly sought after work from prolific author, and pseudonym for Mary Ann Evans,George Eliot. First edition. Sadleir 816a; Carter Variant B. With the original publishers' catalogue to the rear of volume three, and all volumes featuring their original half titles. Like other novels by George Elliot, The Mill on the Floss articulates the tension between circumstances and the spiritual energies of individual characters struggling against those circumstances. The two main themes of the novel, growing up and falling in love, lend themselves to amusement, but it is stunted growth and frustrated love that are emphasised. Commentators have often focused on the constant rejection of Maggie's talents and mannerisms by her family and society. Even the cultural norms of her community deny her intellectual and spiritual growth, according to Elizabeth Ermarth, They are norms according to which she is an inferior, dependent creature who will never go far in anything, and which consequently are a denial of her full humanity. Complete in three volumes. Condition: Inembellished cloth bindings, with gilt lettering to the spines. Externally,lightly rubbed, with slight wear to the extremities and spines. Verylightmarks to the front boards. Some straining to thehinges, but still holding firm. Internally, generally firmly bound, with instances of spotting, and handling marks.

Modern rebacking of matching red morocco, gilt titled, cloth inner hinges. 25 colour plates on 13 heavy leaves, all edges gilt. Some professional repairs at outer corners and edges of covers; small chip at bottom edge of front free endpaper; scattered foxing to margins but only a few of the plates show any foxing at all; separation at fore edge of two leaves (a very easy repair if desired); else a VG tight copy, plates bright and clean. The leaves (all but the last) have a colour plate on each side mounted within a heavy card frame, two frames joined to make each leaf. >>> Old ink inscription on front free endpaper "Given to my Father, Rev Rufus W. Clark, D.D. at Albany, N.Y. - January first - 1868 by General Stephen Van Rensselaer." Tipped in at inner edge of one leaf (the other is loose) is a two page letter signed from Stephen Van Rensselaer to Clarke dated 1 Jan., 1868, headed "Manor House", with his printed monogram, 8 x 5 inches, folded twice, short tears to two folds, else fine. The text is in a secretarial hand, which perhaps isn't such a pity. as Ms Clark was confused about which Van Rensselaer gave the book to her father. It has to have been Stephen Van Rensselar IV (1789-1868), one of the largest land-holders in New York, the son of the distinguished War of 1812 general and politician Stephen Van Rensselaer III (1764-1839). IV found himself involved a the 30 year Anti-Rent Wars when the estate was divided. Van Rensselaer IV writes "Dear Doctor, Among the many books I have overlooked, this one I send is the most artistic & beautiful in design & in execution. The title alone renders it somewhat inappropriate, as never has God's enchanted sun shine beamed more fully upon a family, than upon yours.Your, aged friend, S.V Rensselaer" ( the text body, in a secretarial hand, is in sepia ink, the signature in black ink). In pencil lightly on the back of the tipped in leaf is "This book belongs to Eliza W. Clark" >>> Biblical calligraphed texts with fancy illustrated borders, illustrated and decorated initials (some in gilt). Inspired by the medieval illuminated manuscript, but thoroughly High Victorian, a striking example. COPAC locates only one copy, at the Nat. Lib. of Scotland. WorldCat finds three - at Cal.

      [Mansfield, Ohio. circa 1860-1890]. Small thick quarto, approximately 5.5" x 6.75". Contemporary full morocco, both boards with an elaborate design in deep relief, brass clasps with etched designs, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, printed moire endleaves. Very good with moderate rubbing. A nicely made album of family portraits, containing 27 original albumen photographs laid into the slots. Most are identified with small captions in pencil (two empty slots are also captioned). Moderate fading to some photographs, scattered soiling and tears to the margins, five photos have partially shifted in their slots, overall good or better. The photographs document the life and family of William Zay, a German-born immigrant and photographer from Mansfield, Ohio, from the Civil War through 1890. They include a portrait of the young Zay in uniform, when he served in the 99th Ohio Volunteer Infantry (he was promoted to first lieutenant in 1864), and later portraits of Zay, his wife Flora, and their children (Nellie and Clara). Also included are portraits of Zay's brother Frederick (an artist and photographer who worked in partnership with William), and related family. After the Civil War, Zay became a successful photographer, and it is likely that this album was made at or for his studio. A unique piece of Midwestern Americana. .

        The Colored Fruit Book: For use of Nurseymen.

      Rochester, N.Y.: D.M. Dewey, 1860. - 4to., (11 2/8 x 9 inches). 64 chromolithographed and stencilled plates (many plates with expert repairs to verso and mounted on guards, some plates quite thumbed). Contemporary half black morocco, gilt, red morocco lettering-piece on the front cover, rebacked preserving the original spine, extremities worn). Provenance: with "H.H. Washburn" [?travelling seedsman] gilt stamped on the front cover; early pencilled ownership inscription on front free endpaper, and title-page. A travelling seedsman's custom-made sample catalogue assembled from stock plates, including examples produced by Dewey, but also plates lithographed for him by Kellogg of Rochester. "As Rochester's gardening flourished a local bookseller with an interest in the subject, D.M. Dewey, began to collect and publish coloured plates of fruit, flowers, shrubs, and fruit-bearing or purely ornamental trees. Selections of these plates sold by Dewey and others from the 1850s to the last decade of the century were usually bound into pocket-sized books about ten by six inches with stout leather covers, often stamped with the name of the nursery or the salesman offering the plants portrayed within. Dewey also recognised the wider appeal of the coloured plates described by Charles van Ravenswaay as 'an innovation in American popular art' ("A Nineteenth-Century Garden", 1977, page 20.). Their polychromic attractions were extended to a larger audience in small selections from a larger-sized series presented in decorative bindings, . the earliest plates were simple watercolours, but later, as the demand grew, the technique of theorem paintings coloured with the help of stencils was used to multiply the number of copies as quickly and as cheaply as possible. Later still engraved or lithographed outlines were coloured by hand, and finally chromolithographs printed in colour began to replace more laborious procedures, though some of these were finished by hand too. Most of these processes involved the labour of teams of artists and colourists, one or two of whom went on to establish themselves as rivals to Dewey, though none achieved the same success" (Oak Spring Pomona 64).

        Map of the Five Cities of New York, Brooklyn, Jersey City, Hoboken and Hudson City

      New York: Valentine, 1860. Map. Hand-colored lithograph. 39.5" x 28". This fantastic large scale map of New York City and its surrounding areas was originally prepared for the 1860 edition Valentine's "Manual of the Corporation of the City of New York," a richly illustrated collection of facts and statistics related to the city. It depicts Manhattan Island at the center from the Battery up to lower Westchester and the Bronx. Around Manhattan are the waterfront areas of Brooklyn, Astoria, Hoboken and Jersey City. Overlaying the grid are the names and tracts of Manhattan's original land owners, as well as scattered individual buildings. Wards are in color and there are ferry routes, depths in sounding and a 'proposed prospect park' in Brooklyn. Printed in two sheets, this version has been mended together and lined with linen. Original folds as issued are slightly browned but overall very pleasing. Must be seen to be appreciated. Mathew Dripps was from Ireland. He became a prominent map publisher based in lower Manhattan and is remembered most for his maps of New York City. His maps are hard to find.

        Fine original woodburytype photograph of the composer, three-quarter length, seated, by Etienne Carjat (1828-1906)

      Paris Galerie Contemporaine. 244 x 193 mm., laid down to publisher's mount with decorative border and text. Ca. 1860, but published 1876-1884. A fine impression.. "No composer in the first half of the 19th century enjoyed the measure of prestige, wealth, popular acclaim or artistic influence that belonged to Rossini. His contemporaries recognized him as the greatest Italian composer of his time. His achievements cast into oblivion the operatic world of Cimarosa and Paisiello, creating new standards against which other composers were to be judged. That both Bellini and Donizetti carved out personal styles is undeniable; but they worked under Rossini's shadow, and their artistic personalities emerged in confrontation with his operas. Not until the advent of Verdi was Rossini replaced at the centre of Italian operatic life." Philip Gossett in Grove online

        Autograph letter signed, concerning several of his inventions.

      1860 - Autograph Letter Signed from the Designer of the "Monitor" ERICSSON, John (1803-89). A.L.s. dated March 26, [18]60, to an unknown recipient. 2-1/2 pp., on lined paper embossed with a small steam locomotive and the letters "P. & P. in the upper left corner. 247 x 195 mm. Creased where folded, small tear mended, but fine overall. A very fine, detailed letter from the prolifically inventive Swedish-born engineer John Ericsson, whose many accomplishments include the invention of a screw propeller for steamships, a rotary steam engine, the first English steam-driven fire engine, and his enormously popular "caloric" engine. This last, a hot-air engine designed to use heat more directly and efficiently than its steam-powered counterpart, was the first mass-produced heat-powered engine; in various incarnations, it satisfied the growing need for small and medium-sized sources of industrial power throughout the nineteenth century. Ericsson's most famous achievement, however, was his design for the Union Navy's ironclad warship Monitor; the Monitor's decisive victory over the Confederate ironclad Merrimac in March 1862 marked a turning point not only in the course of the Civil War, but in the history of warship design and construction. In later life Ericsson interested himself in alternative sources of power, particularly solar and tidal energy. The present letter, written almost exactly two years before the Monitor's defeat of the Merrimac, discusses several of Ericsson's inventions-a hydraulic pump, a "swing machine," an air hoister and a telegraphic machine-as well as the difficulties Ericsson had encountered in obtaining the necessary support and encouragement to proceed with the patenting of these inventions. The last paragraph of the letter contains a reference to a "new" caloric engine, which was "nearly ready"; Ericsson continued to improve the caloric engine to the end of his life. Ericsson's imperious and combative temperament is apparent throughout the letter, particularly in the postscript, in which he states that "I should prefer the 'cove' you allude to showing his hand before I have my patent claim. Under my general principle I will be able to hit him all the harder-so with others who may feel inclined to tread on my & our toes just now." DAB. Strandh, History of the Machine, pp. 136-39; 164.
