        Toronto, Canada West" and "The Great Eastern"

      Charles Magnus, New York 1860 - Hand-colored lettersheets measuring 8-1/2 x 21 inches. 4to. The two lettersheets here are unusual productions for Magnus, most of his lettersheets featured images of New York and its environs or of the Civil War. The first of these two is based on Edwin Whitefield's "Toronto, Canada West" first published in 1854. Magnus is known to have reproduced it in the late 1850s. When launched in 1858, the Great Eastern was easily the largest ocean liner of its day. She was subsequently used to lay the Trans-Atlantic telegraph cable in 1865. This lettersheet was almost certainly issued between those two dates.Charles Magnus emigrated to New York with his family in the late 1840s. His older brother published the weekly German language newspaper, Deutsche Schnellpost, and it was there that Charles learned the trade, eventually going out on his own. In the guises of a publisher, map dealer, bookseller and stationer, he issued more than a thousand pieces of illustrated stationery - lettersheets, envelopes, song sheets, as well as prints - usually copying the work from other sources without attribution, sometimes altering the images slightly. He continued to use lithography and hand-coloring long after other publishers turned to photomechanical reproduction processes.Lettersheets were a convenient and thrifty form of stationery in an era in which postage was calculated on the number of sheets used. Folded in half, these four pages were charged as a single page. A little grubby, but very good. Provenance: Estate of James and Katherine Abbe, Long Island, New York Hand-colored lettersheets measuring 8-1/2 x 21 inches. 4to

        Wagon Road, Fort Smith to the Colorado River. Letter of the Secretary of War, The Report of Mr. Beale Relating to the Construction of a Wagon Road from Fort Smith to the Colorado River

      [Washington], 1860. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine. 36th Congress, 1st Session. House of Representatives Ex. Doc. No. 42. 91 pp, with folding map showing Beale's route from Fort Smith, Arkansas to Albuquerque in 1858-9. A fine copy in modern black buckram stamped in gilt on spine and upper board. In 1857, Beale-an accomplished frontiersman who had traversed the country from coast to coast six times bearing dispatches in the late 1840s-accepted a commission to survey a wagon road and establish a trade route along the 35th parallel from Fort Smith, Arkansas to Los Angeles. The expedition is noted in part for Beale's successful use of camels as pack animals. The wagon road began at Fort Smith and continued through the New Mexico Territory and Arizona Territory to Fort Defiance, before crossing the Colorado River near present-day Needles, California. The Mojave Road continued west from where Beale's Wagon Road met the Colorado River, through the Mojave Desert to Southern California. The part of the survey described in this report (Fort Smith to Albuquerque and back, primarily presented in the form of Beale's diary) was conducted in the winter of 1858-59, and Beale notes that it "affords a striking and gratifying proof of what I have stated heretofore of the route on which I have been employed, that winter offers no obstacle on that parallel to the passage of men and wagons, or travel of any description."

        A comparative grammar of the Sanskrit, Zend, Greek, Latin, Lithuanian, Gothic, German, and Sclavonic languages ... second edition.

      London & Edinburgh: Williams & Norgate; New York: B. Westermann & Co, 1860. 8vo (22.2 cm, 8.75"). 3 vols. in 1. [8], xvi, 456, [2], [457]–952, [2], [953]–1462, [2] pp. Second edition of Edward B. Eastwick's translation — the first English rendition — of Bopp's complete Grammar, which had originally appeared in German in six parts issued from 1833 through 1852. The preface notes that this second edition has been checked and approved by Professor Bopp himself, "so that numerous errors, which, from the great length of the work were perhaps hardly to be avoided in the first edition, have now been corrected." All three parts, with their separate title-pages, are here bound into one volume.    Bopp, who studied under de Sacy in Paris, was the chair of Sanskrit at the University of Berlin and a member of the Royal Prussian Academy; his work was highly influential in developing a morphology of Indo-European languages, and indeed dominated the field of comparative linguistics for a significant portion of the 19th century.         NSTC 2B41650. Contemporary half red morocco with paper-covered sides, spine with gilt-stamped title; sides and edges showing minor scuffing, spine slightly darkened. Front pastedown with bookseller's ticket of B. Westermann & Co., private collector's 19th-century bookplate, and institutional stamp (no other markings). Pages faintly age-toned. A sturdy copy of this hefty tome.

A very good copy. Rare Czech alphabet book for little children, with thirty lithographed plates featuring a letter of the alphabet, printed in blue and red in various typefaces, accompanied by an illustration and captions in Czech and German.

The present alphabet book only includes five letters with diacritics, and skips the relatively infrequently used "W" altogether. The printed section lists sample syllables and longer sentences for basic reading and recitation practice, an overview of the ABC and a multiplication table. One of the earliest Czech alphabet books, published in the South Bohemian province by the publisher Alois Landfras, an important figure in Czech publishing during the period of national awakening. According to the Czech National Library catalog, the book was published between 1860 and 1864.

        Quadrupeds of North America

      1860. AUDUBON, John James and BACHMAN, John. The Quadrupeds of North America. New York: George R. Lockwood, [1860]. Three volumes. Royal octavo, contemporary three-quarter green morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $19,000.Handsome Lockwood octavo edition, illustrated with 155 magnificent hand-colored lithographic plates of American mammals from the polar bear to the buffalo.Having built his reputation with the legendary Birds of America, Audubon began an equally imposing project: to capture on paper the astonishing variety of American mammals. Many of the beautiful hand-colored plates are justly famous, including the polar bear, the American buffalo, and the jaguar. Bachman, AudubonÂ’s long-time collaborator, said of the Quadrupeds, “They are the most beautiful and perfect specimens of the art. I doubt whether there is anything in the world of natural history like them, I do not believe that there is any man living that can equal them” (Ford). The octavo edition of the Quadrupeds, first published by Victor Audubon in 31 separate parts between 1849 and 1854 (as well as in book form those same years), was reissued in 1860 and 1870 by George Lockwood, who had come into possession of the original stones. This present edition is the 1860 imprint, retaining the original Introduction in Volume I (dated 1846), with “1849” on the copyright pages and without LockwoodÂ’s Preface (which appeared in the later edition and is dated 1870). Bannon & Clark, 76. See Ford, 217. Plate impressions fresh and colors true, contemporary morocco bindings handsome. A fine set.

FIRST TAUCHNITZ AND FIRST COPYRIGHT EDITION IN A GIANNINI BINDING. Italy was the site of this, one of Hawthorne’s most popular books. Of it, the writer said, "No author, without a trial, can conceive of the difficulty of writing a romance about a country where there is no shadow, no antiquity, no mystery, no picturesque and gloomy wrong, nor anything but a commonplace prosperity, in broad and simple daylight, as is happily the case with my dear native land. It will be very long, I trust, before romance-writers may find congenial and easily handled themes, either in the annals of our stalwart republic, or in any characteristic and probable events of our individual lives. Romance and poetry, ivy, lichens, and wall-flowers need ruin to make them grow." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Charleston: Evans & Cogswell, 1860. 16pp. Original printed yellow wrappers. Light wear to spine, minor wear and soiling. Internally clean. Very good. "Following the Ordinance of Secession itself, which the Carolinians regarded as a latter-day Declaration of Independence, the Address is the most important and most interesting of the several documents of the Secession Convention. It was drawn up by Robert Barnwell Rhett, fire-eating publisher of the MERCURY. The Address cleverly compares the relation of the Southern States to the North to the relation of the American colonies to England, states that all confidence in the North has been lost, asserts the right of secession, and presents a defence of slavery. It is both a justification of the actions of the Convention and an invitation to the other Southern states to join in a new nation" - Harwell. Institutionally common, but scarce in trade.

        19th century view of Venice - Eugenio Testolini.

      SPLENDID 19TH CENTURY VIEW OF VENICE, SEEN FROM THE GRAND CANAL"Palazzo Ducale". Lithography with original hand colouring, made approx. 1860 by Eugenio Testolini in Venice. Size: (image) 37,5 x 55 cm (paper: 49 x 63 cm).The view depicts the city in those turbulent times, when in 1848?1849 a revolt had briefly re-established the Venetian Republic and in 1866, following the Third Italian War of Independence, Venice, along with the rest of the Veneto, became part of the newly created Kingdom of Italy.With from left to right the Palazzo della Zecca (which once housed the official government mint); the Bibliotheca Marciana (behind the library we see the Campanile di San Marco); the Piazetta di San Marco with the granite columns (between which death sentences were carried out) carrying St Theodore and the Lion of Venice (the city patrons) and in the back on St Mark?s Square the Clock Tower leading to Rialto and St Mark?s Basilica; along the Molo (the quay fronting the lagoon) we see the Doge?s Palace and across the bridge to the right the Palazzo delle Prigioni.In the lagoon there are two paddlewheel steamships, one pumping out a black funnel of smoke, as well as numerous gondolas rowing their customers across the water.Although tourism had been an important sector of Venetian industry since the 18th century, when it was a major centre for the Grand Tour, with its beautiful cityscape, uniqueness, and rich musical and artistic cultural heritage. In the 19th century, it had become a fashionable centre for the rich and famous, often staying or dining at luxury establishments such as the Danieli Hotel and the Caff? Florian. With this fine lithography Eugenio Testolini, who had a shop on Piazza di S. Marco, catered to those wealthy tourists.Venice today is still regarded as one of the world?s most beautiful cities and attracts an estimated 50.000 tourist per day.Price: ?1.250,-.
