ANONYME
Album of five Japanese erotic paintings, anonymous.Acordon binding, can unfold completely and expose the five paintings. Very thick cardboard imitating the rigidity of the wood, the paintings on paper were laminated on the cardboard. Coated on the top and bottom plate of anthracite leather marbled added to the twentieth replacing the original fabric. Old beige label with handwritten title in Indian ink. Small speckles scattered on the paintings.the five paintings put five couples into action in tight shots, most of them without furniture or other decor, like Koyushi for example. The palette uses green, yellow, red and blue. The whole is painted in line, in a rather naive and mannerist way. The whole obeys the canons of the representation of shunga (Japanese erotic prints) with happy and fulfilled characters, with particularly exposed sexes, the male member still turgid and fat. Kimonos offer contrasting colors and patterns (geometric, flowers or leaves). The date of 1860 is only a proposal, the collection may be later, around 1880. However, several criteria make us look for an execution at the end of the Edo era. This type of collection was anonymous most of the time because of censorship. At the beginning of the Meiji era, the attraction for erotic photography supplanted the shunga. Some painters specialized in the production of shunga, and it is not uncommon to meet the same scenes in various collections.1860 12x18cm autre

ABRAHAM LINCOLN
ABRAHAM LINCOLN.Print. The Political Gymnasium, lithograph cartoon. New York: Currier & Ives, 1860. Backed by linen. 1 p., 17½ x 12¾ in.This political cartoon created by artist Louis Maurer for Currier & Ives lampoons the candidates for the presidency in 1860.On the left, Constitutional Union vice presidential candidate Edward Everett of Massachusetts holds up his running mate John Bell of Tennessee while saying, "There is nothing like having the Constitution, to give us strength to put up this Bell successfully." Bell confidently declares, "I have perfect confidence in Mr Everett's ability to uphold me." Beside them, Horace Greeley of the New-York Tribune attempts to pull up on a bar labeled "Nom. for Governor" and moans, "I've been practising at it a long time, but can never get up muscle enough to get astride of this bar."In the center, Republican presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln straddles a tall sawhorse of split rails and declares, "You must do as I did Greely, get somebody to give you a boost, I'm sure I never could have got up here by my own efforts." Beneath Lincoln, Republican editor James Watson Webb of the Morning Courier and New-York Enquirer boasts, "I'll bet a quarter I can beat any man in the party at turning political Summersets." To the right Northern Democratic presidential candidate Stephen A. Douglas of Illinois boxes with Southern Democratic presidential candidate John C. Breckinridge of Kentucky. As Douglas says, "Come at me Breck, and after you cry enough I'll take a round with the rest of them," Breckinridge responds, "If I do nothing e … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Albany Law School) Colony, Horatio
[Albany: 1860]. 62 vintage albumen prints, comprising 60 oval gem portraits (1-1/2 x 1 inches), 1 larger oval portrait (2-1/8 x 1-5/8 inches) and 1 full-length (3-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches). 2 vols. 8vo. Early Albany Law School Photographic Yearbook. A photographic yearbook from the Albany Law School class of 1860, assembled by student Horatio Colony (1835-1917). Opened in 1851, Albany Law School is the oldest independent law school in the United States. Many of its students in the 1850s and '60s became prominent lawyers and judges. As is the custom with the professionally produced college photograph yearbooks produced by George Kendall Warren starting in the late 1850s, each photograph is inscribed beneath by the sitter with his name and hometown. The album opens with professors Ira Harris, Amasa Parker, Amos Dean, Nathaniel Harris, and Levi Chamberlain. Some notable students include Alexander P. Ketchum, who became a Colonel and Chief Appraiser of the Port of New York; Clayton H. Delano (1836-1920), who served eight terms as the Town of Ticonderoga's Supervisor and was elected twice to the New York State Assembly; and William S. Opdyke, general counsel of the Delaware and Hudson Company. Horatio Colony (1835-1917), whose picture appears last and is unfortunately obscured by damage, assembled this album. The photograph of Levi Chamberlain is inscribed to "Horatio, friend and pupil." He was admitted to the bar in New Hampshire and New York in 1860; in 1869 he, along with his brother George, took over the management of the family business, the Faulkner and Colony Woolen Mill.

[Stocking (1816-1872), DeLafayette]
Roma: 1860. Written in very fine ink, circa 600/800 words per page. 8vo. The loose leaves bear no name, but it opens with Stocking reporting rounds to various offices for papers required to enter Rome, then under French control. Stocking's thoroughness here allowed his identification, as a check of U.S. Consular reports from Naples show just one visa application of any sort on February 14th - that of DeLafayette Stocking, for Rome. DeLafayette Stocking (1816 - 1872) was the second child of the Rev. Solon Stocking of Binghampton, New York. Despite the apparent level of seriousness displayed in the diary, DeLafayette came from a family prone to light-heartedness, at least in the choice of names; his father was one of eleven children with names each starting with the letter "S". In DeLafayette's generation, all nine children had names starting with "D". The family is perhaps more notable for including Captain Abner Stocking, a sea captain who fought at Bunker Hill and later sailed a Revolutionary privateer. He was DeLafayette's great grandfather. (See C. Stocking - "THE STOCKING ANCESTRY", 1903). Stocking is not unhappy to leave Naples, fed up in particular with over-eager carriage drivers, but he does look back from the deck of the steamer at the Neapolitan panorama with some pleasant memories. With gentle irony he describes the petty fees, the jostling of porters, the complexities of baggage clearance at Civita Vecchia, the passengers with ten small bundles each, suggesting the hassles of travel with good nature. Stocking's style throughout is candid. As he approaches Rome, … [Click Below for Full Description]

As is the custom with the professionally produced college photograph yearbooks produced by George Kendall Warren starting in the late 1850s, each photograph is inscribed beneath by the sitter with his name and hometown. The album opens with professors Ira Harris, Amasa Parker, Amos Dean, Nathaniel Harris, and Levi Chamberlain. Some notable students include Alexander P. Ketchum, who became a Colonel and Chief Appraiser of the Port of New York; Clayton H. Delano (1836-1920), who served eight terms as the Town of Ticonderoga's Supervisor and was elected twice to the New York State Assembly; and William S. Opdyke, general counsel of the Delaware and Hudson Company. Horatio Colony (1835-1917), whose pi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scripps, John Locke
Tribune Tracts No. 6 Author: [LINCOLN] Scripps, John Locke Published: New York; Horace Greeley & Co., 1860 Binding: Condition: (please see full item description for details) Description: 32 pp, printed in double columns. Original self-wrappers. Front wrap has some restoration, an old price written in ink, and an old bookseller's description affixed to the bottom margin. Internally clean and sound; housed in a custom cloth clamshell case. An early Lincoln campaign biography, described by Howes (S-247a) as "the most authentic" of the many accounts of Lincoln's life produced during the 1860 and 1864 campaigns. Published simultaneously by the Chicago Press and Tribune and in this New York edition, Scripps' work was based in part on an autobiographical sketch written by Lincoln. It also included additional details Lincoln provided only reluctantly, after telling Scripps that his life could be condensed into a single sentence from Gray's Elegy: "'The short and simple annals of the poor.' That's my life, and that's all you or anyone else can make of it." According to Horrocks (Lincoln's Campaign Biographies, p. 54), "Although he informed Lincoln that he had added 'nothing that I was not fully authorized to put into it,' Scripps freely embellished Lincoln's manuscript, adding details concerning his ancestors, parents, and religious upbringing that the candidate chose to omit." Lincoln may have been displeased with this, but the public was not, and the pamphlet sold very well.

The Greenly library consists mostly of her collection of contemporary Regency literature, however it was expanded after her death by various members of her extended family. Notable among these are Edward Greenly, a famous Victorian geologist, and William Bradford, a founding father who travelled to America on the Mayflower and who was closely associated with the Greenly's at Titley Court through marriage. The rich and diverse history of the Greenlys at Titley Court is reflected in the broad selection of works found in the library. Collated, complete. Illustrated, with twelve plates to volumes I, II, III, IV and V. Fourteen plates to volumes VI and VIII as well as twenty-one plates to volume VII. Cornhill was one of the leading literary journals of the Nineteenth Century.

Smith, Elder & Co, 1860. In keeping with Cornhill's status as one of the leading literary journals of the Nineteenth Century, though second perhaps to the likes of All The Year Round, the contributors to the publication were often particularly famous literary figures of the day, with the likes of Robert Browning, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and William Makepeace Thackeray (who was the magazine's first editor) often publishing their work in Cornhill. The magazine played a leading role in the drastic popularisation of authors and their work, with the quintessential Victorian practice of the serialisation of novels ensuring continued interest in both the magazine itself and the writers and artists that were published within it. Some of the works included here in their serialised form are: Anthony Trollope's Framley Parsonage (found in Volume I) John Ruskin's Unto This Last (found in Volume II) Wilkie Collins' Armadale (found in Volume X) Thomas Hardy's Far From The Madding Crowd (found in Volume XXIX) The magazines were also often accompanied by the illustrative work of the likes of George Du Maurier, Edwin Landseer and John Everett Millais, making for a comprehensive overall impression of Victorian artistry, offering an insight into an era where literary journals were both at the peak of popularity and something of a mass entertainment, a phenomenon that would decline sharply in the subsequent decades with the advent of film.
