        2 Ship Logs from the Schooner Henry P. Russell July 25th, 1860 to June 21st, 1863; and from May 15, 1865 to October 7th, 1865

      [New York] 1860 - Lot (2) folio ledgers with marbled paper covered boards, worn leather corners and leather back strips. The first ledger records begin in July 1860 and has 138 pages. The second ledger entries start in late 1861 and has 142 pages. Both ledgers spines are taped and boards are worn with large sections of marbled paper missing. Some of the pages in the logs are loose and starting to detach. 10 pages in the first ledger have cut out sections ranging from half to a quarter page of missing content. The second ledger also has cut out sections with 8 pages of similar size content missing. Several pages are brown stained upper edges and other pages contain small ink stains and occasional dark smudges. The front and rear end sheets of both ledgers are damp stained. Written at the top sections of the logs are departure locations and arrival places. Each page consist of columns but no lines. Printed titled columns include "Hours, knots, Fath's, Courses, Winds, L. W., Variat'n and Remarks." Recorded measurements and written narratives are clearly legible. The master of the Schooner H. P. Russell in 1860 was L. Mankin. Mankin's entries make up all but the last 18 pages of the first ledger. Stephen. C Nickerson, Master recorded the last 18 pages in the first log from May 15, 1865 to October 7, 1865. L. Mankin was in charge of keeping records in the second ledger from December 24, 1861 to June 8th, 1862. The next log sheet was removed. Log entries begin again June 30th, 1862 in the hand of the next ship Master, P. Nickerson. The last dated record in the second log was June 21, 1863 while Nickerson and the H. P. Russell were anchored in New Orleans. According to the written records and narratives kept in the ship logs the Schooner Henry P. Russell (H. P. Russell), a northern merchant vessel, conducted trade along the Atlantic Coast and Gulf of Mexico just before, during and after the Civil War. While the H. P. Russell sailed on its voyages the Masters of the H. P. Russell recorded daily measurements, sailing routes, wind and weather conditions, ship maintenance, operation issues, etc. The commanders also recorded the passing of landmarks and light-houses, quantities of cargo picked up, the occasional exchange of colors with other ships, and the general health of crew. The H. P. Russell shipped cotton and rice from Charleston, South Carolina as late as January 1861. March 1861 records the departure and voyage of the H. P. Russell towards Charleston but there is no record in the remarks section of delivering or receiving any goods while in the Charleston Harbor. After departing Charleston in March 1861 the ship set sail for Rio De Janeiro. Other voyages recorded in the logs include round trips from New York to Havana, Trinidad, New Orleans and the Tortugas. These logs books do not directly mention the Civil War or any problems associated with the conduct of business due to the war. However, what these logs do provide is primary source material, sometimes repetitive, of a ship's travels conducting business "as usual" during the war, sometimes not too far removed the action.

        The Western Hemisphere]

      1674, but reprinted Canton, 1860]., [Beijing, - Canton Printing of the Western Part of Verbiest's seminal world map Xylograph, printed on 3 sheets, the southern polar landmass embellished with animals, the spandrels with large lozenges with text descriptions. The western hemisphere of one of the largest world maps ever printed. Verbiest's original is as rare as its forerunner produced by Matteo Ricci at Beijing in 1602 (or its now-lost predecessors). This reprint is almost as rare. A remarkable piece of printing by the Jesuits in China, published to mark their official return to favour. Beginning with Ricci at the end of the sixteenth century, the Jesuits were really only tolerated in China as scientific advisers and were not allowed to embark on a general mission throughout the country, nevertheless the influence at the imperial court of Ricci's successor, Adam Schall von Bell aroused the jealousy of imperial agents who, on the pretext of the Jesuits supposedly preparing the way for Portuguese occupation, in 1664 had Schall von Bell and five assistants sentenced to death. Schall von Bell was reprieved, but his Chinese assistants were executed and all the priests in China, were rounded up in Canton with a view to being expelled. It wasn't until 1667 when the young Emperor K'ang-Hsi began to take a hand in the affairs of government and made friends with Schall's successor, Ferdinand Verbiest, that the measures taken against the Christians were rescinded and the position of the Fathers made secure. The 1674 original is reproduced in 'Europa und die Kaiser' (Frankfurt, 1985), at p.109-111. A Canton version c.1860 is reproduced (in error for the original), in 'Chine Ciel et Terre' (Gent, 1982), at p.408-409.

        Chair carved by Putiki Māori and presented to Reverend Richard Taylor as a personal gift

      [Whanganui : William James Harding, probably between 1860 and 1870]. Albumen print photograph, 205 x 130 mm, on its original nineteenth century album page, contemporary inscription above image '2. Calabash & Maorie chair with arms, box & idol'; the albumen print has lost some contrast, and has a short tear at the lower right edge which was probably made when the print was laid down. The Reverend Richard Taylor's chair is now held in the Whanganui Regional Museum, which describes this significant object as follows: 'Chair carved by Putiki Maori and presented to Reverend Richard Taylor as a personal gift about 1844. This extraordinary missionary served in Wanganui from 1843 to 1873. He was dedicated to his mission, a prolific writer, collector, arbitrator between Mäori and European, naturalist and advisor to governors. His collection includes this carved chair made for him by members of his congregation, a taiaha described in 1843 as his staff and support, a collection of rare godsticks from this region, exquisite kaitaka paepaeroa or prestige cloaks, and a rare potae taua or mourning cap.' (Whanganui Regional Museum) The negative of this rare and important photograph is held in the National Library of New Zealand, where it forms part of a collection of negatives by early Whanganui photographer William James Harding (Chair carved by Putiki Maori and presented to Reverend Richard Taylor as a personal gift. NLNZ Ref: 1/1-000043-G). Harding worked as a photographer in Whanganui from 1856 until 1889. In this photograph taken in Harding's studio, the photographer, almost certainly in consultation with Rev. Taylor, has arranged three of Taylor's Māori staffs to stand behind the chair; on the left is a tewhatewha, and on the right a taiaha. A patu is balanced on the central back panel. On the seat are two waka huia (treasure boxes), and a gourd (or calabash) is placed on the floor before the chair.

The little money he took got him to Providence, where he was caught. His execution in New York Harbor, in the sight of hundreds of vessels, was in the best maritime tradition (McDade). A notable feature of this account is the "psychological" profile by Fowler, the notable phrenologist, based on a post-mortem study of Hicks's skull and digestive organs.

        Autograph letter signed ("V.").

      H[auteville] H[ouse, Guernsey], 9 Feb. [1860]. - 8vo. 3 pp. In French, to Noel Parfait in Paris: "Your kind letter moves me. You are sad and happy at the same time, and it is quite normal. Homeland is sweet but exile is grand. One goes back home but one has to give up one's freedom. I understand the double shock your soul is experiencing. But it does not matter, dear Parfait. You are going to be happy, I have no doubt about that. You are taking into the darkness that prevails in France nowadays the serenity of a proud conscience and the satisfaction of having overcome the ordeal. You will feel respectable among all the despicable people. That is an austere kind of joy but it is indeed a joy. Thank you for all the details you gave me. I congratulate and envy Dumas, who was able to help you and ensure that you will have enough to live on in Paris. That, plus all the intelligence, style, grace, talent and virtue that you have! I assure you that you are going to do very well. I am sorry for H.M. the world's biggest scoundrel [H.M. stands for His Majesty, most likely Louis-Napoleon], but there is going to be one successful honest man in Paris. I already know seven or eight of them, maybe nine, and that will make ten with you. Our friend must be in Brussels at the moment. Tell him that I am going to answer his letter and ask him to send me, in the meantime, the issue of l'lndependance (by mail, since it costs two sous there and six francs here) in which my note on George Sand was printed. Also, I would like to have his address in Brussels [ ]". In a postscript, Hugo as added, "Would you be so kind as to have the first of the two letters I am enclosing handed over to Bance, whose address I do not know, and mail the second one in Brussels? Sorry and many thanks". - In February 1860, Hugo was still living in exile on Guernsey, still writing about the darkness that prevails in France and the world's greatest scoundrel. It was an exile that had begun in December 1851 when a coup d'etat took place in France, which eventually resulted in the Second Empire under Napoleon III, and it did not end until the return of liberty and the reconstitution of the republic on 4 September 1870. However, his exile had recently become a voluntary gesture and an act of pride, a time to stand against Louis Napoleon. On 15 August 1859 (the birth of Napoleon I), Napoleon III offered an amnesty to exiles, which was accepted by some, but not Hugo. In a poem, "Ultima verba", he marked his decision, stating "No one will suppose that I personally can take any notice of the thing called an amnesty. In the present condition of France, protest - absolute, inflexible, eternal protest - that is my duty. True to the engagements I have made with my conscience, I shall share the exile of freedom to the end. When freedom returns, I shall return". The truth of the matter was that Hugo could not return during the reign of Napoleon III without inflicting a deep wound on his pride, and he could not resign himself to that. He was also well aware of the status and commercial value of banishment, even though the banishment was now self-imposed. The personal defiance of Napoleon III, the deliberate choice of martyrdom, gave Hugo a new heroic dimension. - With integral address leaf.

        [TASMANIA] A daguerreotype portrait of a woman wearing a bonnet and Paisley pattern dress, identified as "Mary Ann Fielding of Australia"

      [Australia? : s.n., circa 1860]. Ninth plate daguerreotype, exposed image 56 x 43 mm, still sealed in its original pressed copper mat and frame, 71 x 55 mm; verso with the original leather backing inscribed in an early twentieth century hand 'Mary Ann Fielding of Australia. Mother's namesake'; original string for suspension; the daguerreotype is intact, with scattered tarnishing beneath the cover glass and a mild rose hue from oxidation. If this is indeed an Australian daguerreotype, there is a strong possibility it has a Tasmanian connection. We have tentatively identified the subject as Mary Ann Fielding (née Harvey, 1823-1863). Her obituary appeared in the Launceston Examiner, 16 July 1863: "At her residence, Exton, July 11, 1863, Mary Ann, the beloved wife of J.J. Fielding, aged 39 years." The style of dress she is wearing dates the photograph to around 1860 - relatively late for a daguerreotype - which would mean she was in her late thirties when the likeness was taken. Following her death, Mary Ann's husband, James Fielding, married Ann Clarke. They had a daughter, also called Mary Ann, who was clearly named in honour of her father's first wife. This explains the "namesake" reference in the later inscription on the back of the daguerreotype. The younger Mary Ann was born in Exton on 26 April 1869 and died on 8 July 1945 in Yolla, Tasmania. She married George Edward Dobson (born Exton, 12 July 1872; died Yolla, Tasmania, 1 April 1945) on 26 April 1899 in Port Frederick (Devonport). The couple had five children: Ethel Nellie, Kathleen Mary, Hazel, Stanley and Henry James, one of whom presumably wrote the inscription identifying the subject as "mother's namesake". (Since they were all issue of James Fielding's second wife, they were not related by blood to the first Mary Ann). George and Mary Ann Dobson resided in Penguin, Smithton and Elliott before settling in Yolla in the 1920's. Both are buried in the Penguin General Cemetery. As the daguerreotype was sourced from an American collection, we postulate that it was taken to the United States at some point in the early twentieth century by one of George and Mary Ann Dobson's five children, a fact which would account for the inclusion of the modifier "of Australia" in the inscription.

        19th century album amicorum of 42 loose sheets in a silk-covered box.

      [s.i.], [n.pl.] 1860 - The box contains several small watercolour paintings, pencil sketches, three pieces of embriodery and a number of manuscript verses/poems/greetings. The box probably belonged to to Stephania Gerrietta Johanna (Stephanie) Brocx, born 1810, died 1880. Author(s): Various artists. Illustrated by: Most of the works are signed. Many are friends and family by names of Brocx and Van Andel. Others include U.J. Lautsz, Van Oosten Slingeland (perhaps Daniel), L.H.J. Wollweber and O. Wollweber (who made a landscape with the inscription "in mijne Krijgsgevangenschap vervaardigt" ('Made during my time as prisoner of war'). As many of the contributors signed as Officers of the artillery, our guess is that mrs. Van Andel's husband was a military man. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        [GOLD RUSH] Welcome Nugget

      Chromolithographic advertising label, c 1860, for Welcome Nugget tobacco (270 x 270 mm, some minor toning to margins and very small amount of silverfish damage at right edge, not affecting image), with imprint lower left:T.C. Williams Co. Manufacturers. Virginia, U.S.A.; framed.A gold miner with pick and shovel holds aloft an enormous gold nugget, and exclaims : Jack, look at this. A further printed caption lower right reads: As the Welcome Nugget, weighing 2217 ounces, exceeds in purity and value any lump of gold ever found, so this brand surpasses in quality any tobacco made. This is a reference to the Welcome Nugget,discovered at Bakery Hill, Ballarat in 1858, and weighing 71.3 kilograms, at the time the largest alluvial gold nugget ever found. (It has only ever been surpassed in weight by the Welcome Stranger, unearthed in 1869, also on the central Victorian goldfields). The claim for its discovery was made by a group of 22 Cornish miners. After being assayed in Melbourne, the nugget was sold for ten-and-a-half thousand pounds sterling, and exhibited in Sydney before being taken to London, where it was displayed at the Crystal Palace exhibition. It was melted down shortly afterwards and the precious metal was used to mint gold sovereigns. This American commercial label graphically illustrates the extent to which gold fever had gripped the world after the rushes in Victoria (1850s) and New South Wales (1860s) had followed the earlier Californian rush (1848-1855).

        JOURNAL OF RESEARCHES INTO THE NATURAL HISTORY AND GEOLOGY OF THE COUNTRIES VISITED DURING THE VOYAGE OF H.M.S. BEAGLE ROUND THE WORLD under the command of Capt. Fitz Roy, R.N.

      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.

        Illustrated Manuscript of two poems: "To a Woodman's Hut there came one day." and "My Voice is still for War." [From "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves" and Addison's "Cato", respectively]

      Full Pebbled Leather, Blindstamped and Gilt Decorated. Very Good. N.p., but American. N.d., circa 1860. Oblong, 23 by 28.5 cm. Two text leaves, each with one of the poems rendered in full, followed by 66 leaves, each with a mounted sheet onto which is written words from a poem and is drawn in pen and ink an illustration of those words. The illustrations are inspired mostly by the single word or phrase captioned on the sheet, as opposed to the wholeness of the poem, and thus the illustrations don't always fit in with the poem, or have the most nominal relationship to it, but nonetheless, the illustrations are full of charm and fun, and they are really best viewed and enjoyed without reference to the poem.While we don't have a date for the album, the ubiquity of Civil War-era uniforms and stove pipe hats strongly suggest the 1860s. There are also interesting illustrations of slaves. Many of the illustrations look back nostalgically to an earlier era, as for instance the eighteenth century which is depicted as a world of music and dance masters and gracious society. Classical Rome is represented in abundance too, as one might expect for "Cato". In these drawings and in evocations of Medieval times, the illustrator was not reluctant to indulge in a bit of anachronistic imagery as well.We don't know who the artist was, but clearly he was a very capable amateur -- the artwork is not quite done with the polish of a professional, we would grant. Some of the illustrations are highly detailed, while others are of a sketchier nature."To the Woodsman's Hut" gives rise to 26 of the illustrations, "Cato", 40. Repair to the joints. The binding has a few scuffs but is overall very attractive.

        Lithographed Membership Certificate for the Socialistischer Turner-Bund, ca.1850's

      [Cincinnati?]: Issued without imprint, [N.d. but before 1860]. Early membership certificate for the North American Socialistischer Turner-Bund, a German Socialist Athletic society formed by exiles from the Revolution of 1848. The Bund, established in 1850 in Cincinnati (with nearly simultaneous chapters in other centers of German immigration, including Philadelphia, New York, Milwaukee and Chicago), is generally considered the first organized Socialist organization in America. The organization disintegrated during the Civil War, but was re-established in the 1870's but with a much-reduced emphasis upon political affairs -- in fact, after about 1870, the descriptor "Socialistischer" was dropped from the organization's name. Tinted lithograph broadside, ca. 12" x 9", printed recto-only on thin paper. Text in one column within elaborate pictorial borders; blank portions for completion by hand (unused). Old folds; neat tape repairs verso; light soiling; Good.

        Watercolour of Chefoo (Yantai) During the Taiping Rebellion (1850-1864)

      Yantai, Shandong Province, China, 1860. In good condition.. Watercolour, 230 x 380 mm, signed and dated ("Lindesay Brine fecit June 22 1860"); mounted. An attractive and skillfully executed drawing heightened with watercolour. Two Chinese figures carrying baskets have been sketched in the foreground but have not been finished. A European ship and numerous ships either sail or ride at anchor off a promontory hill, probably Tengchow (now Penglai), one of the treaty ports opened for foreign trade following the 1858 Treaty of Tianjin.Lindesay Brine, who entered the Royal Navy in 1847, was the author of "The Taeping Rebellion in China; a narrative of its rise and progress, based upon original documents and information obtained in China" (London: Murray, 1862). This watercolour was made on the spot during his service as commander in the China Seas. The painting is captioned in ink on the image: "HMS Gunboat Opossum - Junk by Chefoo - The French Troops are Encamped on the Hill." "While serving in the Far East, [Brine] took much pains to collect accurate information on the troubles then prevailing, and in 1862 published the results of his observations and inquiries in a volume entitled 'The Taiping Rebellion in China'" (Obituary in The Geographical Journal 27,3 (March 1906).
