        29 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Rom, 1861-1869.. Zus. 48 S., 8° bis 4°.. "Nach Studien am Collegio Capizzi in Bronte und an den Priesterseminaren von Monreale und Neapel kam De Luca 1829 nach Rom, wo er von 1833 bis 1836 Privatsekretär des Kardinals Thomas Weld war. Er wurde am 10. Februar 1839 im Alter von 33 Jahren in Rom zum Priester geweiht. Am 24. November 1845 wurde er zum Bischof von Aversa ernannt und zwei Monate später zum Bischof geweiht. Am 22. Dezember 1853 wurde er als Titularerzbischof von Tarsus eingesetzt. Pius IX. bestellte ihn am 24. Dezember 1853 zum Päpstlichen Nuntius in München und am 9. September 1856 wurde er Apostolischer Nuntius am Kaiserhof in Wien. Am 16. März 1863 im Alter von 57 Jahren wurde De Luca zum Kardinalpriester von Santi Quattro Coronati ernannt. Von 1864 bis 1878 war er Präfekt der Indexkongregation. Von 1873 bis 1874 war er Kämmerer des Kardinalskollegiums. 1878 wurde er zum Kardinalbischof von Palestrina und zum Vizekanzler der Heiligen Römischen Kirche ernannt und erhielt den titulus San Lorenzo in Damaso in commendam. Er hat am Ersten Vatikanischen Konzil und am Konklave zur Wahl Leos XIII. teilgenommen. De Luca starb 1883 im Alter von 78 Jahren in Rom" (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. -

        J.M. Stuart's Exploration, 1860 Ordered by the House of Assembly to be printed, 7th June, 1861. Diary of J.M. Stuart, Esq., of an Exploratory Trip towards the North-West Coast of Australia, during the period from 2nd March to 3rd September, 1860 [drop title]

      Ordered by the House of Assembly to be printed, Adelaide 1861 - Folio, printed on blue paper, 24 pp.; with a large two-sheet folding map; neatly bound in later cloth, a fine copy from the collection of Rodney Davidson, with his bookplate. Rare official printing of John Macdouall Stuart's journal of his fourth expedition through central Australia, noteworthy for the discovery of the Finke River, Macdonnell Ranges and the geographical centre of the Australian continent. The expedition followed the disbanding of Stuart's party, which had assembled for prospecting in the Davenport Range. After finding no gold the men rebelled and were paid of in Chambers Creek. Shortly afterwards, on 2 March 1860, Stuart set off into the vast wilderness with two companions, William Kekwick and Benjamin Head. The party lost important provisions to flooding and suffered terribly from scurvy and malnutrition; indeed Stuart lost the use of his right eye. They discovered the Finke River and Macdonnell Ranges before ascertaining the exact centre of the continent on 22 April 1860. Stuart writes 'To-day I find, from my observation of the sun?that I am now camped in the centre of Australia. About two and a half miles to the N.N.E. is a high mount. I wish it had been in the centre. I shall go to it to-morrow and build a cone of stones, plant the British flag, and name it Central Mount Stuart. We have been in search of permanent water all day, but cannot find any?'. For the following month they searched fruitlessly for water, frustrating plans for further travels to the north-west. Rains in May allowed a dash to Tennant's Creek and two months later the group, now emaciated with hunger and fatigue, returned to Chambers Creek. Stuart, Keckwick and Head received a heroes welcome in Adelaide, their discovery of the exact centre of Australia prompting the South Australia government of to fund Stuart's next expedition to cross the continent in direct competition with Burke and Wills. Published as House of Assembly paper 65 of 1861. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Hodgson of Bratled Villa to the front pastedownParr, Harriet [pseud. Holme Lee] (18281900), novelist, was born at York on 31 January 1828, one of six children. The story of doomed rustic life told in Gilbert Massenger was so popular that the novel was translated at once into French and Italian, and Parr was invited to give a lecture tour in France, Germany, and Belgium. Her success soon enabled her to retire from teaching and buy a small house at Shanklin, on the Isle of Wight, where she taught Sunday school and acted as a ministering angel to the local population. (In fact, she was often mistaken for a Sister of Mercy. ) She wrote thirty more novels, all of which are refined in tone, somewhat sentimental, and written in an easy, unaffected style which appealed to the sense of decency of the Victorian reader. These merits, supplemented by the enthusiastic support of Charles Edward Mudie, secured her considerable popularity as a writer for children. She did, however, publish four non-fiction works under her own name: a series of depressing autobiographical essays, In the Silver Age: Essaysthat is, Dispersed Meditations (1864), The Life and Death of Jeanne d&#39;Arc (1866), Maurice and Eugnie de Gurin (1870), and Echoes of a Famous Year (1872). Her last novel, Loving and Serving, appeared in 1883. Condition: The binding is a little loose. There is wear to the extremities including fading, rubbing and some cracking to the outer hinges. The inner hinge is strained and may fail in the post, and the rear inner hinge has failed. Internally the pages are generally bright and clean with the odd spot.

        The Young Duke: A Moral Tale, Though Gay. With Philip Rollo; or, the Scottish Musketeers

      861 - London - Routledge, Warne and Routledge, 1861. 861 - London - Routledge, Warne and Routledge, 1861 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Two novels from great nineteenth century writers bound into one. Disraeli turned towards literature after his financial disaster, motivated in part by a desperate need for money, and brought out his first novel, Vivian Grey, in 1826. The Young Duke was his second novel, first published in 1831. Disraeli&#39;s writing is generally interesting, and his books teem with striking thoughts, shrewd maxims, and brilliant phrases which stick in the memory; on the other hand, he is often artificial, extravagant, and turgid. Critic William Kuhn argued that much of his fiction can be read as the memoirs he never wrote, revealing the inner life of a politician for whom the norms of Victorian public life appeared to represent a social straitjacket particularly with regard to his allegedly ambiguous sexuality. James Grant (18221887) was a Scottish author. Grant was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and was a distant relation of Sir Walter Scott. He was a prolific author. Many of his 56 novels are about important characters and events in Scottish history. In 1853 he founded the National Association for the Vindication of Scottish Rights. Condition: In a half crushed morocco binding. Externally sound though somewhat rubbed. The hinges are strained but holding firm. Internally, firmly bound, bright and clean throughout. There is an ink signature to the front advertisement, and another to the title of Philip Rollo. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        The Cloister and the Hearth. A Tale of the Middle Ages

      London: W. Clowes for Trübner & Co, 1861 - A note laid into the first volume, signed by Muriel Trollope, indicated that this copy stayed with the Trollope family until 1932. A pencilled note by Hugh Walpole on the verso of the front flyleaf, dated 1933, reveals that he purchased it from the family through the agency of Michael Sadleir. The rear endleaf bears the Quaritch collation mark. Though nowhere noted in the book, this was lot 3134 in the H. Bradley Martin sale. Set in of the latter part of the 15-century, and against a background of the Reformation, the invention of printing, and a wealth of historical characters such as Luther, Deschamps, Villon, and Erasmus (as a child), Reade weaves a rich tapestry revolving around the tragic love- story of Erasmus' parents. Charles Reade became involved in a dispute with Anthony Trollope after turning the novel Ralph the Heir into the play Shilly-Shally (1872) without Trollope's permission. This situation was somewhat unusual for Reade because he was more frequently on the other side in cases of unauthorized adaptations and pirated editions First edition. 4 vols., 8vo. 2 ff., 360; 384; 328; 435 pp. Original green cloth, spines titled in gilt. Binders ticket of Westley's, London. Bookplates of Anthony Trollope, Hugh Walpole. Professionally rebacked to the highest standard, preserving original spines, overall a very pretty copy, housed in a leather-backed slipcase.

      - A SCARCE COLLECTION OF SHEET MUSIC WITH 13 FROM THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR ERA AND NICELY BOUND INTO A LARGE CLOTH VOLUME WITH PASTEDOWN LABEL OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER MARY C. LOHR This was from an era where for the next generation, people would pour through these old volumes kept in an old piano bench and would gather round the old upright and sing of the most important years of their lives, the Civil War years.

Item 3 Strike While the Iron is Hot! Put the Matter Through. With a beautiful picture of the Union flag in red, white and blue. Cincinnati, 1862.

Item 5 Brother, When will you Come Home? Words and Music by E.W. Locke. Cleveland, 1864.

        A POWERFUL APPEAL FOR PEACE BY THE CHAMPIONS OF WAR [caption title]

      [San Francisco? circa May, 1861?].. [San Francisco? circa May, 1861?].. Broadside, 23 x 14 3/4 inches, printed in five columns. Several old folds. Some minor tanning and edgewear. Very good. Matted and framed. A rare anti- war broadside, apparently printed in California just at the beginning of hostilities, and using the words of prominent Republicans and pro- Republican newspapers for the cause of non-aggression. The anonymous author of this broadside argues against war, and for reconciliation with the Confederacy, in an effort to "save what remains of the Republic from wreck and ruin, from grinding taxation and an inevitable military despotism." The argument is done quite cleverly by quoting a series of Republicans from the pre-war period, and using their own words against them. The first half of the broadside quotes San Francisco&#39;s three Republican newspapers, the BULLETIN, TIMES, and ALTA CALIFORNIA. The author then takes us "cross the mountains" to "see what the NEW YORK TRIBUNE, the most potential and approved organ of the Abolition Party of the states has said." Next come a series of quotations from California&#39;s Senator Milton Latham. Finally comes a 1848 quote from Abraham Lincoln: "Any people anywhere, being inclined, and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing Government, and form a new one that suits them better." The concluding question: "Now, fellow-citizens, are not these clamorers for war convicted out of their own mouths?" The latest source quoted here was an April 11 SAN FRANCISCO TIMES article, and the context suggests that open hostilities had scarcely begun. The broadside was done to shore up support for the "Democratic Peace Party of California," possibly in advance of the September 1861 gubernatorial election. Not in Greenwood, and we locate no copies in OCLC or in the trade.

      Pest: Kiadja Heckenast Gusztav, 1861.. Pest: Kiadja Heckenast Gusztav, 1861.. [6],198,[2]pp. printed in double columns, including in- text illustrations, plus twelve tinted lithographs, one engraved plate, and one colored plate. Frontispiece. Half title. Folio. Original blue publisher&#39;s cloth, stamped in gilt. Corners bumped and worn, spine lightly worn. Bookplates on front pastedown and flyleaf. Some light foxing, but generally clean and fresh. Very good. A rare Hungarian account of a tour through the Caribbean, Mexico, and Latin America, lavishly illustrated with lithographs. Pál Rosti (1830-1874), a Hungarian naturalist and pioneering photographer in Latin America, visited the Americas between 1856 and 1858, retracing the steps of Alexander Humboldt. His experiences are recorded in this wonderfully illustrated account. Rosti&#39;s observations contain useful documentation on social history, natural sciences, and ethnology. His visit to Venezuela was the first photographic register of the country. Humboldt visited Rosti to see the first photograph taken of the Samán de Güere and exclaimed that the tree was the same as when he and Bonpland had seen it some sixty years before in 1800. Humboldt died a few days later. ^The plates include a scene in the Plaza de Armas in Havana, a fine view of Caracas, Venezuelans at rest in the rain forest, the small village of San Juan de los Morros, and bamboo plants in Trinidad. The Mexican illustrations include the Plateau of Puebla, the Ravine of Santa Maria with the Orizava volcano in the distance, a large cathedral in Mexico City, Mount Popocatepetl, and the village of Pachuca. The several in-text illustrations add much in the way of details of the flora and fauna of the region, as well as local dress and customs. Rare and informative, with wonderful plates. PALAU 279201.
