        A Victorian Scrapbook of Children’s Tales].

      n.p. s 1860 - Small 4to, 48 leaves. Profusely illustrated throughout with pages from children’s books, many hand coloured with a degree of skill, the borders and blank spaces filled in with further cuttings of small engravings, blocks of text, printed advertisements or single letters making a striking and colourful display, painted ownership inscription to the paste down of one Alfred Herbert Bailey. Recent maroon morocco over contemporary marbled boards, the latter with some wear. A delightful compendium of leaves from at least 12 children’s books, including Tom Thumb, Mother Goose, Uncle Phillip’s Tales, Butterfly’s Ball, Pigeon Pie Alphabet, Comical History of Punch and Judy and Poor Cock Robin. A number of these were published by Park in the 1840s, while towards the end of the volume several titles published by William Walker in Otley have been pasted in. Several are very scarce, with a handful - or in three cases only one - copy being located on Copac or Worldcat, which despite their mutilation and arrangement makes this an attractive album.

In 1844 he published his "Cycle of celestial objects for use of naval, military and private astronomers," (sometimes referred to as the Bedford catalogue), a work for which he was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Astronomical Society [see DNB]. The present volume, according to the Memoires of the R.A.S. is "a supplement to the 'Bedford Catalogue' containing the results of observations made at Hartwell between the years 1839 and 1859, bringing up to the latter date the history of many of the more remarkable double stars. Among them 7 Virginis occupies a conspicuous place… The same volume contains a history of all the circumstances attendant on the discovery of the planet Neptune…" (Memoires of the Royal Astronomical Society, Volume 35. London, 1867. Col. 126, 127). [Crawford Library Cat., p.421].

        CONTEMPORARY COLLECTION OF AMERICAN PHARMACEUTICAL LABELS 1860-1885

      18. Good. [PHARMACOLOGY - 19TH CENTURY - AMERICA]. A CONTEMPORARY COLLECTION OF AMERICAN PHARMACEUTICAL LABELS, CIRCA 1860-1885. Approximately 440 mid- nineteenth century pharmaceutical labels laid-down on [29] leaves, or loosely laid-in, in a commercially manufactured blank book. The majority of the labels are from pharmacies in Boston, Massachusetts, and environs, and Philadelphia, with a good selection from New York City, and a few from such far flung places as Rutland and St. Albans, Vermont, and Minneapolis, MN. The greatest number of labels from an individual concern are those from Borell, Pharmaceutical Chemist of Philadelphia, and the variety of the preparations named on the Borell labels is impressive. However, the album was probably compiled in Boston based upon the greater variety of pharmaceutical companies represented - at least twenty different pharmacies and chemists in the Boston area are included - and that some of the Boston labels are among the earliest in the collection. The firm of Caswell, Massey & Co. exists today as a "purveyor of luxury personal care products and accessories" but is identified herein as Pharmaceutical Chemists with locations in Newport, RI, and New York City. Taken as a whole, the album provides a window onto the wide array of medicinal, cosmetic, and household products available in nineteenth century American pharmacies. Some of the products are recognizable and still used today, i.e. quinine, iodine, flaxseed, etc., while others might require a little bit of research, i.e. Lady Webster Dinner Pills "for persons of full habit or gouty tendency", and some, such as Lead Water: Poison to Swallow, leave one to wonder at their exact application. Some labels are blank, just waiting to be filled in; while others for prepared compounds and medicines are printed, occasionally with handwritten dosage instructions. Also, there are some orange labels that scream caution ("POISON", "FOR EXTERNAL USE") or designate potentially hazardous materials ("Persian Insect Powder", laudanum, etc.). Octavo, [110] ff., cloth-backed marbled boards. The upper board is detached and the cloth spine is frayed. One leaf has had a label excised leaving a hole. Laid-in are three other, later pieces: a five-page list of members of the American Pharmaceutical Association for 1925-26, removed from the Journal of the American Pharmaceuti

        Map of the United Counties of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington, Canada West from actual Surveys under the Direction of H. F. Walling

      Kingston, Canada West: Putnam & Walling Publishers, 1860. Lithographed map, full original hand-colouring, folding in 36 sections, backed onto linen at a contemporary date, edged with green silk ribbon. (61 1/4 x 62 inches). A fine large-scale map of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Counties in Canada, including a large view of the city of Kingston. Ristow devotes an entire chapter to the work of Henry Walling in American Maps and Mapmakers (pp. 327-338.), noting that Walling, along with Robert Pearsall Smith, "unquestionably made the greatest contributions to town and county mapping" during the period between 1850 and 1880: Ristow's remarks concentrate on Walling's contribution to the mapping of the United States, but are equally applicable to his work in Canada. This map of the counties in Canada West was the most accurate and detailed map of the area that had yet been assembled. The map includes a large inset and detailed town plan of Kingston (with an adjacent business directory), together with insets of 28 other towns in the area. There is also a table of distances. Eight uncoloured vignettes of important county buildings are also included and there are business directories for at least five of the other towns depicted. The map is here presented as a case map, sectioned and linen-backed, rather than in wall map form, thus preserving the beauty of the original colouring, and without the varnish that tends to be such an unwelcome feature of wall maps of the period. Cf. Ristow American Maps and Mapmakers pp.327-338; not in Rumsey.

      1860. Sneed, William C. Report On The History And Mode Of Management Of The Kentucky Penitentiary, From its Origin, In 1798, To March 1, 1860. Frankfort, KY: Printed at the Yeoman Office, Jno. B. Major, State Printer, 1860. vi, 614 pp. Four lithograph views, one engraved portrait, one lithographed portrait. Octavo (9-1/4" x 6"). Original cloth with decorative blind-stamping. Rubbing to extremities with wear to spine ends and corners, joints cracked. Some toning to text, occasional light foxing. Owner signature of Newton Craig to front endleaf, interior otherwise clean. * Only edition. This documented history may be an official publication, but it is also a personal protest against a recent change in policy which abandoned the original humanitarian purpose behind the construction of this modern penitentiary in favor of the exploitation of prison labor for profit. Sneed was the prison doctor. The book is also interesting for its fine lithograph views produced by Hart & Mapother, of Louisville, from photographs taken by C.A. Clarke, of Frankfurt. Also issued as "Public Document No. 4," this is clearly a separate trade edition. Newton Craig, keeper of the prison from 1844 to 1855, was one of two public figures to whom the work is dedicated.

        (Amish Valentine)

      1860. Single leaf measuring 5 by 7 3/4 inches. A drawing of a young man and woman glancing shyly at each other, with their noses drawn in an angular fashion so as to point at each other. Below the figures is penned words “i cant [sic] stop long this time.” A Feb. 25, 1861 inscription on the verso says “Valentine – Mr. Willis S. Marden.” The young man wears simple clothing, a blue hat with a red band, a red shirt, and blue pants, that seems to place him in an Amish or Mennonite community. His hair is long and curly. The woman’s costume is slightly more elaborate; she wears red shoes and a pearl necklace with her blue dress, and her uncovered hair is curled. The sheet of paper was once folded into quarters. Until postal rates became standardized, early valentines were typically folded, sealed, and hand-delivered to a beloved’s doorstep. Pennsylvania-German or Dutch handmade valentines gained recognition for their fine workmanship, with detailed pinprick and cutout designs. This example is no less remarkable for its simplicity. Some faint discoloration, primarily to fold lines, and slightest wear to two corners.

        Incidents of Travel in Egypt, Arabia Petraea and The Holy Land.

Passing scenes of the faded and worn-out kingdoms of the Old World and explaining their relevance to the uninitiated.

        Major Genl J Ogilvie Sed Book Vol 2 [Spine Title].

      1860 - [Manuscript]. [Ogilvie, John (1783-1847)]. [Major Genl. J. Ogilvie Sed. Book Vol. 2. (Spine title, item complete, see below)]. [Likely Edinburgh, 1860s-1871]. [iv], 270 pp. Folio (13" x 8-1/2"). Three-quarter calf over marbled boards. Some rubbing to extremities with chipping to spine ends, corners somewhat worn, text in various neat hands. * From the Oriental Bank Company of Bombay, India to Edinburgh. Here is the story of Major General John Ogilvie and the trustees who settled his complicated estate over a protracted period among feuding family members. In this scenario, it would be a half-sister who would be fighting for a share in the disputed estate versus her sister-in-law. The rights of a woman legatee, in this case the General's widow, were at stake as were the widow's desire to fulfill her husband's wishes. General Ogilvie served in the Honorable East India Company Madras Army. He died without issue and was survived by his widow, Helen Ogilvie [1785-1867]. Helen Ogilvie decided to bequeath the estate to her husband's half-brother, James Ogilvie, but to omit another half-brother, Archibald Ogilvie from the estate. Her decision to exclude Archibald Ogilvie-the widow pointedly stated-was the wish of her deceased husband. But Helen's decision now opened the door to a legal challenge by General Ogilvie's half-sister, Isobel Ogilvie Miller, and Isobel's husband. They too now made a claim on the estate. This challenge came to a head on January 25th, 1870 in the court decision John Duncan and Others (Trustees of General Ogilvie) represented by the Solicitor-General's office via Clark-Munro vs. Mrs. Isobel Ogilvie or Miller and Husband, represented by Fraser and Watson. The case was heard and decided by the entire four-judge bench of the First Division of the Court of Session at Edinburgh, the supreme civil court of Scotland. Despite the designation "Volume 2," this volume forms a complete record created by legal solicitors on behalf of the trustees of General Ogilvie's estate. Volume 1 and any other volumes covered, we assume, other aspects of the suit. The records are in chronological order from 1849 to 1871, but appear to have been gathered as a final record book of the estate's settlement in 1871, following an 1870 Court of Session decision. The volume contains 9 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Trier Trèves".

      1860 - Stahlstich von W.J. Cooke nach A.G. Lasinsky bei H. Felsing, ca. 1860. Ca. 25 x 31 cm. Riss und Knickspur unten außerhalb der Darstellung. Nicht bei Engelmann. Sammelbild mit einer Gesamtansicht und acht Teilansichten, die durch eine Rahmung aus aneinander gebundenen Stöcken umgeben werden. Wein- und Blumenranken, Bäume und zahlreiche Figuren sind um die Rahmung gruppiert. Im Mittelfeld ist eine detailreiche Gesamtansicht der Stadt Trier von Pallien aus über die Mosel hinweg dargestellt. Am linken Rand ist das Wappen des Bistums Trier, am rechten Rand das Wappen der Stadt Trier befestigt. Oberhalb der Ansicht sind die Porta Nigra, der Dom und die Basilika dargestellt. Über dem mittleren Bildfeld, das den Dom beinhaltet ist der Heilige Rock als kostbarste Reliquie Triers abgebildet. In der unteren Bildhälfte sind der Georgsbrunnen auf dem Kornmarkt, die Porta Alba, das Amphitheater, die Kaiserthermen und der Petrusbrunnen auf dem Hauptmarkt dargestellt. Unterhalb des Bildfeldes werden der Titel und das Petruswappen von zwei liegenden Löwen gerahmt, darunter befindet sich eine Legende mit der Benennung der dargestellten Gebäude. Links ist vermerkt "A.G. Lasinsky del.", rechts "W.J. Cooke scul.". Das Städtische Museum Trier besitzt ein 1847 datiertes Bild von August Gustav Lasinsky (1811-1870) mit der Darstellung der Wallfahrt zum Heiligen Rock nach Trier im Jahre 1844. Vorliegendes Blatt dürfte daher ebenfalls zur Wallfahrt des Jahres 1844 entstanden sein. Besonderes Interesse verdient es darüberhinaus, da es eine der wenigen historischen Darstellungen des Neutor-Reliefs in situ liefert. Hier vorliegend eine Variante des ohnehin seltenen Blattes. Offenbar wurde die Original-Platte an den Trierer Verleger P. Braun verkauft, der sie rechts unten mit seinem Namen ergänzte, wobei der Stecher einen Fehler machte (F. statt P.). Riss und Knickspur unten außerhalb der Darstellung.

        The Modern Democratic Creed! Letter of John Brodhead, Democratic Candidate for City Treasurer?

      Letterpress broadside, 18 7/8" x 11 3/4", bold black type for highlighted words. Paper evenly toned, some wrinkling, considerable archival conservation and restoration with archival paper repair; despite the imperfections it is still a decent copy with a nice impression. This appears to fall into the political dirty tricks department in an election between John Brodhead and Henry Bumm for city treasurer in Philadelphia. The broadside is supposed to highlight a letter from John Brodhead to Jefferson Davis in 1860. It has strong racist overtones, as Brodhead supposedly requests a position in Nicaragua, so he can "help open it up to civilization and Niggers." He goes on to state he is "tired of being a white slave at the North, and long for a home in the sunny South." These kinds of political tricks were not uncommon during the Civil War period (perhaps that's still true today), and the racist overtones would certainly not help one's chances in a Northern election.
