        Fine studio sized sepia profile full length portrait by photographer /sculptor Adam Salamon

      Paris, 1860. <p>Original Portrait by Adam-Salomon</p><p>Rayer, Pierre François Olive (1793-1867). Sepia-toned portrait photograph of Rayer in middle age, by Antoine Samuel Adam-Salomon (1818-81). 275 x 212 mm. Paris, circa 1860. Minor damage at corners due to removal from mounting, traces of former mounting on verso.</p><p>Excellent, rare , and good-sized portrait photograph by Adam-Salomon of the dermatologist and pathologist Rayer, author of the classic Traité théorique et pratique des maladies de la peau (1826-27; G-M 3989). The photograph is typical of the work of Adam-Salomon, who originally worked as a sculptor, but </p><p>turned to portrait photography under the influence of the Munich photographer Franz Hanfstaengel. Adam-Salomon&#39;s antique poses, making much use of light and shade to give painterly effects, were inspired by Classical sculpture and painting and incorporated expensive fabrics and settings. He also favoured heavy retouching of the negatives, for which he was criticized by some contemporaries. He was, however, much admired for the imposing character of many of his portraits . . . Some of those hostile to photography, such as Lamartine, were persuaded to consider it as an art by the work of Adam-Salomon. He founded his studio in Paris in 1859, working on reproductions of works of art as well as portraits of the rich bourgeoisie, and he proposed working on a portrait gallery of European notables. He was made a member of the Société Française de Photographie in 1870 and received the Légion d&#39;honneur the same year ("Antoine-Samuel Adam-Salomon," Answers [internet reference]).</p><p>The photograph shows Rayer dressed in brocade vest and frock coat and standing in front of a classical pillar or column, with a velvet-draped table next to him on which are stacked two old books. This rare photograph was purchased in an auction that contained a few items owned by Rayer&#39;s descendants. </p>

        Autograph letter signed, concerning several of his inventions

      1860. <p> Autograph Letter Signed from the Designer of the "Monitor" </p><p>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.</p><p> 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. </p><p>Ericsson&#39;s most famous achievement, however, was his design for the Union Navy&#39;s ironclad warship Monitor; the Monitor&#39;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.</p><p> The present letter, written almost exactly two years before the Monitor&#39;s defeat of the Merrimac, discusses several of Ericsson&#39;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. </p><p>Ericsson&#39;s imperious and combative temperament is apparent throughout the letter, particularly in the postscript, in which he states that "I should prefer the &#39;cove&#39; 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. </p>

      Hong Kong & Macao. 1860-1864.. 8pp. total. Loose, single sheets. Near fine. Seven letters written by American merchant Franklin Delano Williams discussing business affairs in China. Williams was a partner in the China-based trading company Wetmore, Williams & Co. He is listed as living in Hong Kong in 1859 and is recorded as being elected treasurer of the Shanghai Literary and Scientific Society (later the North China Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society) in 1857. He is likely a distant relative of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, as the Delano family is known to have been heavily involved in the China trade in the 19th-century. The letters here are addressed to an Owen, though some are addressed to W.W. Cowles, Esq. It is likely that Owen was a brother or other relative, as Williams makes reference to "mother" in the letters. The first letter, dated Oct. 27, 1860 and penned on company stationery, refers to an upcoming trip home: "I intend to leave for home on the 29th inst per mail steamer, stopping on the way for a few days in France and England. The probability is, that I shall (D.V.) be with you in two to four weeks after these lines come to hand." A letter from June 10, 1862, discusses primarily business matters but also comments on the American Civil War: "Why don&#39;t you put down those infernal rebels? Crush &#39;em out!" In a letter dated at Macao on October 11, 1862, Williams brings up his intention to leave Macao to seek better business opportunities elsewhere in China. "I think business at Macao will be pretty much over, in a few weeks. I intend to take a look at Shanghai, then, & shall be likely to return & locate at Hong Kong where I am promised a good business if I will establish myself at that part." Later letters indicate that he did as promised and resettled in Hong Kong - the next four letters are all dated at Hong Kong. On Jan. 13, 1863, he writes further on the Civil War, saying: "I think prospects look very bad at home. The Rep. party must drop their ultraisms & go in for Union only: let the &#39;nigger&#39; alone for the present, or there&#39;s no hope & much to fear." The final three letters all concern business affairs. A letter dated Feb. 27, 1863 discusses payments owed and received, as well as the plans of a mutual acquaintance. "I think George has done right to return to China if he will keep steady, & he will do well, otherwise not." Dated July 11, 1864: "We have quite hot weather, & I am not very well & short of help temporarily, so can&#39;t write much." And in the final letter, dated Oct. 14, 1864, he discusses business and mutual acquaintances, writing, "Bekie arrived here last night, & proposes making me a visit of some weeks. She is very well. George is looking for something to do at Shanghai, & seems to be in good spirits. I heard from Breck today, who says he has changed his mind again & concluded to remain at Hankow for 6 months longer." An interesting group of correspondence from an American businessman in China during the Civil War.

      London, John Murray, 1860.Second edition, tenth thousand, 1860. 8vo, approximately 195 x 115 mm, 7¾ x 4½ inches, a few wood engraved illustrations and diagrams in the text, pages: xv, 519 including index, plus 32 page catalogue with adverts dated April 1867, bound in the original publisher's zigzag pattern green cloth, blind stamped decoration to covers, gilt decoration, gilt rules and gilt lettering to spine, original light brown endpapers. Tiny crease at tail of spine, gilt decoration just slightly rubbed in a couple of places, a touch of rubbing to corners, tiny bump to lower corner of lower cover, inner paper hinges not cracked, neat inscription to front pastedown, title page faintly browned, slight faint foxing to Contents table which is printed on different paper from the rest of the book, text pages bright and clean throughout. A very good plus copy. This is Darwin's first published book and is the most often read and stands second only to The Origin of Species as the most often printed. Referred to universally today as the Voyage of the Beagle, it is an important travel book in its own right and its relation to the background of Darwin's evolutionary ideas has often been stressed. The tenth thousand which this is provides the definitive text and sees the first appearance of the Postscript dated February 1st 1860 on page vii in which Darwin takes the opportunity to correct some errors. This is the first time it was published in the green cloth binding in the same style as the first three John Murray editions of On the Origin of Species. See Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin, pages 31 - 36 and No. 20. Freeman states that inserted advertisements in our edition may be as late as September 1868.

        THE ENGLISH STRUWWELPETER Or Pretty Stories and Funny Pictures.

      Imprint & edition unknown, circa 1860.Circa 1860, imprint and edition would have been on original covers which are missing. Rebound long ago in plain mauve cloth, small 4to, page size 255 x 188 mm, 10 x 7¼ inches. 24 pages of hand coloured illustrations, all but Shock - Headed Peter reproduce the familiar post 1858 designs still used until recently. Shock - Headed Peter himself has a huge mass of long straight hair down to his ankles and he has a heavy fringe to his forehead (see image). Original covers lacking, cloth discoloured and soiled, slightly frayed at head and tail of spine and corners. Margins lightly soiled and lightly thumbed throughout, some light foxing, tiny chips to lower corners, many short closed margin tears, one 70 mm (2¾") closed tear affecting blank area only and a few at lower inner edge, neatly mended on verso with archival tape, 2 old paper mends on verso, a few ink spots to 1 blank page, pale brown staining to 1 illustration and facing blank (pressed flowers - see image). A good copy of a scarce item printed on thin poor quality paper. The illustration of Shock - Headed Peter with ankle length hair is very close to a second design made by Hoffmann in 1858 (see Hurlimann, Three Centuries, plate VI lower right, facing page 55 and see Bilderwelt page 238), and which was used by Trim in Pierre l'Ebouriffé (1860). This illustration is not recorded in an English edition. Ours seems very early for the little cross and soup tureen in The Story of Augustus are printed as in the German version: ?Kaspar? and ?Suppe? whereas later versions say: ?Augustus? and ?Soup?.

        4 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Laxenburg-Wien, o. J. (um 1860).. Zus. 7 S., 12° bis Gr.-8°.. Gräfin Esterhazy "war Hofdame und eine enge Vertraute der österreichischen Erzherzogin Sophie, der Mutter des Kaisers Franz Joseph I. von Österreich. Von Erzherzogin Sophie wurde sie auch für das Amt der Oberhofmeistern, der sog. Ersten Gesellschaftsdame', bei Kaiserin Elisabeth ausgesucht. Im August 1853 begegnete sie erstmals der jungen Sissi, als sie ihr in Bad Ischl zu ihrer Verlobung mit Kaiser Franz Joseph I. gratulierte. Im April 1854 wurde sie Elisabeths Oberhofmeisterin. Sie war fast 56 Jahre alt, als sie das Amt der Oberhofmeisterin erhielt und galt als sittenstrenge, zeremoniöse Frau'; außerdem war sie für ihre erzkonservative Haltung bekannt. Sie übernahm bei Kaiserin Elisabeth de facto die Funktion einer Gouvernante. Elisabeth fasste vom ersten Augenblick an eine tiefe Abneigung gegen Gräfin Esterhazy-Liechtenstein; sie empfand sie als Aufpasserin'. Esterhazy-Liechtenstein wurde allerdings von einzelnen Mitgliedern des Hofstaats ebenso wegen ihrer gouvernantenhaften Haltung gegenüber Elisabeth kritisiert; auch, dass sie Elisabeth in den Familienklatsch der Hocharistokratie einzuweihen versuchte, obwohl Elisabeth dafür kein wirkliches Interesse zeigte, wurde negativ vermerkt. Esterhazy-Liechtenstein betrachtete dies jedoch als eine ihrer Aufgaben. Sie war, im Auftrag von Erzherzogin Sophie, im April und Mai 1854 auch bei den Flitterwochen von Franz Joseph I. und Elisabeth auf Schloss Laxenburg anwesend, um eventuelle Verstöße der Kaiserin gegen die Etikette an Erzherzogin Sophie berichten zu können. Im Juni 1854 begleitete sie das Kaiserpaar auf dessen erste Auslandsreise nach Böhmen und Mähren. Im Winter 1860 wurde ihr von Kaiserin Elisabeth mitgeteilt, dass sie sie auf ihrer Reise nach Madeira nicht begleiten werde und dass sie von einer anderen Hofdame, der jungen Mathilde zu Windisch-Grätz, vertreten werde. Während Elisabeths Madeiraaufenthalt übernahm sie, gemäß den Weisungen von Erzherzogin Sophie, die Erziehung der beiden Kinder Elisabeths, der Erzherzogin Gisela von Österreich und, gemeinsam mit Baronin Karoline Walden, auch die des Kronprinzen Rudolf. Im November 1861 - Erzherzogin Sophie hatte sich diesmal durchsetzen können - reiste sie gemeinsam mit Kaiser Franz Joseph I. und den beiden Kindern Gisela und Rudolf zu Elisabeth, die sich seit Ende Oktober 1861 in Venedig aufhielt; von dort berichtete sie Erzherzogin Sophie ausführlich über Elisabeth und ihre Kinder. Während des Venedigaufenthalts kam es mehrfach zu Streitigkeiten zwischen ihr und Kaiserin Elisabeth wegen der Erziehungsmethoden der Gräfin. Esterhazy-Liechtenstein bestand darauf, dass die von Erzherzogin Sophie angeordneten Erziehungsprinzipien genauestens eingehalten wurden. Elisabeth forderte daraufhin die Entlassung der Gräfin. Anfang 1862, wohl im Laufe des Jänner 1862, wurde Esterhazy-Liechtenstein von Kaiser Franz Joseph I. als Oberhofmeisterin entlassen. Ihre Nachfolgerin wurde Pauline von Königsegg, Gräfin Bellegarde. Kaiser Franz Joseph I. verabschiedete sich persönlich von ihr, dankte ihr für ihre Dienste und überreichte ihr als Zeichen seiner Dankbarkeit ein wertvolles Armband mit seinem Porträt. Esterhazy-Liechtenstein kehrte daraufhin von Venedig nach Wien zurück. Sie starb im Juni 1869 in Wien und wurde in der Liechtenstein'schen Familiengruft in Wranau beigesetzt. Bei ihrer Beerdigung in Wranau in der Liechtenstein-Gruft waren auch Kaiser Franz Joseph I. und Kaiserin Elisabeth anwesend" (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -
