        Husking

      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.

        Views of the Works of the Gould & Curry Silver Mining Company, Virginia City, N. T.

      San Francisco: Britton & Co., [ca 1860]. - Oblong 4to., (10 x 13 4/8 inches). 13 tinted lithographed plates, plan of the mine, and one folding topographical view of the mine and Virginia City at end (some heavy spotting). Original plum cloth, gilt (rebacked to style, unevenly faded to brown). THE BONANZA YEARS IN NEVADA - CLAIMS TO THE RICHEST KNOWN SILVER DEPOSIT IN THE UNITED STATES First edition, and SCARCE, only six copies have been recorded in American institutions, and only one copy of the work has appeared at auction in the past 25 years. Claims to the richest known silver deposit in the United States were made in 1859 by Henry Tomkins Paige Comstock, after whom the mother lode on Mount Davidson in western Nevada was henceforth called. When Comstock disposed of his holdings, the lode became a scene of furious activity, centering on Virginia City. Of the three mining companies established there in the early 1860s, Gould and Curry was the largest, employing 635 men and influencing local elections. "As 'Gould & Curry' goes, so goes the city," quipped Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), who, in 'Roughing It', recorded his experiences as a cub reporter in 1862 for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise. "Laboring-men's wages were four and six dollars a day," Clemens continued, "and they worked in three 'shifts' or gangs and the blasting and picking and shoveling went on without ceasing, night and day . Gould & Curry stock paid heavy dividends--a rare thing, and an experience confined to the dozen or fifteen claims located on the 'main lead,' the Comstock." Gould & Curry's smelting works, depicted in the south view plate, was located on Gold Hill, which contained the richest expanse of ore. Plate 12 depicts the 10-room mansion supplied to the company superintendent rent free. The house, now known as the Mackay mansion, stills stands today on "D" street as a testament to Virginia City's early opulence.

        THE MILL ON THE FLOSS

      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]

        Sand Dunes” (Carmel, California)

      - Henry Joseph Breuer (1860-1932) “Sand Dunes” (Carmel, California) Oil on canvas Signed "H.J. Breuer, 1915" lower left 19 ½" x 25 ½"; 27" x 33" framed Born in Philadelphia, Henry Joseph Breuer studied art during the 1870s in Buffalo, New York. Breuer later attended the Art Academy in Cincinnati, working at the same time as a decorator of pottery at the Rockwood Pottery Company. Following that, he worked for five years as both a lithographer and mural painter in New York. During his time in New York he visited San Francisco on two occasions and became enamored by the beauty of the California coast. In 1888 Breuer moved to San Francisco, and worked as art editor and illustrator for both the San Francisco Chronicle and California magazine. He was an active member of the thriving art community in San Francisco, and was an active exhibitor of both the San Francisco Art Association and The Bohemian Club. Many successful artists were working in San Francisco at that time, including Albert Bierstadt.

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]
