        The Burke and Wills Exploring Expedition... with portraits and biographical sketches of Robert O'Hara Burke, and William John Wills

      Melbourne: Wilson and Mackinnon, 1861. Octavo, iv, 36 pp. (last blank), with a striking lithographic portrait frontispiece of both explorers (later portrait of Wills pasted to rear of frontispiece), a little foxing of the frontispiece and title-page yet a wonderfully preserved copy in original green titling wrappers housed in a navy quarter morocco bookform box. A pristine copy in the original wrappers: with the frontispiece. Scarce and desirable contemporary booklet reprinting vital accounts of the Burke and Wills tragedy, issued shortly after news of the calamity had reached Melbourne. Its anonymous editor states it was 'not put forth as a history of the Exploring Expedition. It is but the last sad chapter of a sad history…'. Overall this is a serious work, with a postscript lamenting that public hysteria surrounding recent events has diminished the dignity of the perished explorers: 'that for the moment the grandeur of the enterprise, the success of which has been so dearly purchased, is almost overborne by the mass of puerility and littleness to which the subject has given birth.' Although slim, the minute type of the booklet contains several important testimonies and manuscript entries; including a note sent by Alfred William Howitt from Portia Creek dated 10 October 1861, Burke's last despatch, the narrative of the sole surviving member of the expedition John King, lengthy extracts from the journals of Howitt and Wills and an assortment of notes from Burke scrawled in the desperate last weeks of his life. Wantrup notes a number of different Wilson & Mackinnon imprints of this title, testament to insatiable public curiosity surrounding the tragedy. All are based upon the "Argus" newspaper accounts; this particular edition is the first to feature the unusually sensitive and detailed frontispiece portrait.

        The Contraband Schottische - Sheet Music

      Philadelphia: Lee & Walker, 1861. First Edition. Sheet Music. Very Good. First Edition. Sheet Music. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Complete: 6 pages including the cover. The cover shows a white overseer, whip in hand, threatening four young male slaves. Slightly trimmed and with nice corners and old tape binding so probably from an old bound collection of sheet music. No rips, tears, writing, or other markings. Light marginal soiling. Dedicated to Major General Benjamin Butler, who at the time was the Commanding Officer of Fort Monroe in Hampton Roads, Virginia. In early 1861, three slaves, who had been working as laborers building defense-works in nearby Norfolk, snuck across the bay and presented themselves at Fort Monroe. Butler refused to return the slaves in accordance with the federal Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 maintaining that since Virginia had seceded from the Union there was no legal requirement to do so. With time, other escaped slaves began reporting to Union forces, and by August they were being officially identified as "contraband," an old naval term that referred to smuggled goods.

      John Tyler free franks an envelope addressed to "Miss Rebecca Jones Dr. Geo. W. Jones Richmond Virginian." The letter inside is 4 pages written from New Kent City, VA - Sherwood Forest on April 9, 1861. The letter reads in part, "My dear fiend, I have been thinking of you much since I got here. I have been here five weeks today and expected to head home on Friday or Saturday last . . . This continued rain has really worried me. Of course what God sends is all right, but there seems to be no prospect at present for fair weather, and three of he children here have measles and two of the colored people, so that I am daily dreading Martha's breaking out with it, before I can get away. Just as soon as it clears I expect to leave for home so that if you have not already written, you must write me at once when to expect you. How is Mrs Jones health. I give my love to her, with best wishes for her health. That is going on more now in Richmond. Though legislature has adjourned, and it is thought the conve

        Autograph Letters Signed / Partly-printed Autograph Manuscript

      This English composer, conductor, pianist and singer is remembered for his many comic songs and glees, but also composed operas such as "Queen of the Thames," "Pascal Bruno" and "Rose, or Love&#39;s Ransom" and the cantata "Robin Hood." First, an ALS, 3pp, 4½" X 7¼", Upper Halloway, England, 1861 January 1. Addressed to William Cox Bennett (1820-95), a minor English poet who authored several verse collections. Near fine. Cordial note from a poet who it seems wants Hatton to set some of his poems to music. "I am much obliged for your new Book of Poems which I will devour as soon as I get the chance. The &#39;1000 miles away&#39; will, I think, suit my knuckle -- & I&#39;ll have a try at it. The Publisher of &#39;The Homeward Watch&#39; will send you copies very shortly. When the weather gets a little decent, we will have a &#39;big talk&#39; at yr. fireside con molto piacere.... I have forwarded Kingsley&#39;s Poems by this Post...." Boldly penned. Second, another ALS, 2pp, 7" X 4½", Margate, England, 1874 July 5. Addressed to William Kingston Sawyer (1828-82), poet who authored "Ten Miles from Town" (1866) and "The Legend of Phyllis" (1872). Near fine. In bold purple ink, Hatton pens another poet who wants Hatton to set his verse to music. "The &#39;Rose song&#39; in yr. Vol. is very nice -- & would make a charming ballad -- but I cannot put myself in competition with Balfe -- who always did -- & always could write a more popular tune than ever I could...." Third and last is a Partly-printed Autograph Document in the form of a 12mo (4 3/4" X 7¼") full calf blind-embossed volume, n.y. Very good. Some edge and corner wear, but overall tight and decent; text pages a bit edgeworn. Front pastedown bears Hatton&#39;s 3" X 1½" printed "Mr. J.L. Hatton" calling card. "S. Goswell St." pencilled by Hatton above his printed name has been crossed out in ink, as has the "210 Regent Street" inked in his hand below his printed name; next to this last, he pens "Aldeburgh, / Saxmand home." The full text block of this blank book consists of light brown leaves, on the front flyleaf of which he pens "Index / Ho! fill me a Tankard." Hatton has neatly affixed a 4" X 6½" sheet to the recto of the first three leaves, the first titled "Index" and all three bearing his inked a list of his titles (or first few text words) in a left-hand column and a page number in a right-hand column. Thus the first index page begins with "Ho! fill me a" on page "1" and ends with "Fat man" on page "14," the second leaf begins with "Mr. Brown&#39;s Serenade" on page "15" and ends with "Woman of Mind" on page "28," and the third leaf begins with "Sally, Sally" on page "29" and ends with "Kit the Cobbler" on page "43." After several blank leaves these lyrics appear, as printed in newsprint, clipped out and neatly affixed, with Hatton noting the indexed page number on each clipping. The clippings are bright and clean, showing no brittleness. Some fill one side, some fill two or more sides, and occasionally there are blank leaves interspersed. Three songs listed in the index do not appear: # 2 ("In days of old"), #5 ("Leather Bottel") and #20 ("Teacher of Express"). Hatton makes a number of interesting textual corrections and changes, and occasionally adds editorial remarks and such. In "Comic Song," for instance, he crosses out the line "I think I shall faint, I feel so queer" and inks in "I shall die an old maid, I fear." To "The Little Fat Grey Man," Hatton crosses out a dozen lines with a large "X" and pastes in a 3½" X 2¼" slip on which he has penned alternate lyrics. On "Mr. Brown&#39;s Serenade," Hatton crosses out two lines near the bottom, draws a line to the facing page and pens two new lines. He writes in the margin, "J. Boosey for his &#39;Numerous Song Book&#39; -- June 4, 1874" (certainly referring to the British music publisher). And below this clipping, he adds, "Very good -- first rate affect always. J.L.H. 1874." Below the clipping of "King Canute and the Cold Water Cure," Hatton writes: "I think John Parry did this -- but I never saw it in print. J.L.H. 1874" -- most likely referring to John Orlando Parry (1810-79), Welch singer and pianist. Below the "A Dinner in London" clipping, he writes "don&#39;t like it much." Hatton pens a measure of miniscule music in the margins of the "William Tell" clipping, then adds below the clipping: "a first rate song. J.L.H. 1874." Below the "Little Red Riding Hook" clipping, he remarks "rather too long." He changes the title of "Mr. Lewis Thomas" (called "O Ruddier" in his index), crossing out "Lewis Thomas" and writing in "Weiss." Perhaps most interesting of all are two holograph fair copies penned by Hatton. The first is a five-page holograph fair copy of "The Cock Sparrow" which Hatton has tipped in -- #36 in his index. The second is a four-page, eight-stanza song titled "Legend of the Rotunda" -- #41 in his index. All in all a fascinating insight into this composer&#39;s work -- highly unusual.

Cordial note from a poet who it seems wants Hatton to set some of his poems to music. "I am much obliged for your new Book of Poems which I will devour as soon as I get the chance. The &#39;1000 miles away&#39; will, I think, suit my knuckle -- & I&#39;ll have a try at it. The Publisher of &#39;The Homeward Watch&#39; will send you copies very shortly. When the weather gets a little decent, we will have a &#39;big talk&#39; at yr. fireside con molto piacere.... I have forwarded Kingsley&#39;s Poems by this Post...." Boldly penned. Second, another ALS, 2pp, 7" X 4½", Margate, England, 1874 July 5. Addressed to William Kingston Sawyer (1828-82), poet who authored "Ten Miles from Town" (1866) and "The Legend of Phyllis" (1872). Near fine. In bold purple ink, Hatton pens another poet who wants Hatton to set his verse to music. "The &#39;Rose song&#39; in yr. Vol. is very nice -- & would make a charming ballad -- but I cannot put myself in competition with Balfe -- who always did -- & always could write a more popular tune than ever I could...." Third and last is a Partly-printed Autograph Document in the form of a 12mo (4 3/4" X 7¼") full calf blind-embossed volume, n.y. Very good. Some edge and corner wear, but overall tight and decent; text pages a bit edgeworn. Front pastedown bears Hatton&#39;s 3" X 1½" printed "Mr. J.L. Hatton" calling card. "S. Goswell St." pencilled by Hatton above his printed name has been crossed out in ink, as has the "210 Regent Street" inked in his hand below his printed name; next to this last, he pens "Aldeburgh, / Saxmand home." The full text block of this blank book consists of light brown leaves, on the front flyleaf of which he pens "Index / Ho! fill me a Tankard." Hatton has neatly affixed a 4" X 6½" sheet to the recto of the first three leaves, the first titled "Index" and all three bearing his inked a list of his titles (or first few text words) in a left-hand column and a page number in a right-hand column. Thus the first index page begins with "Ho! fill me a" on page "1" and ends with "Fat man" on page "14," the second leaf begins with "Mr. Brown&#39;s Serenade" on page "15" and ends with "Woman of Mind" on page "28," and the third leaf begins with "Sally, Sally" on page "29" and ends with "Kit the Cobbler" on page "43." After several blank leaves these lyrics appear, as printed in newsprint, clipped out and neatly affixed, with Hatton noting the indexed page number on each clipping. The clippings are bright and clean, showing no brittleness. Some fill one side, some fill two or more sides, and occasionally there are blank leaves interspersed. Three songs listed in the index do not appear: # 2 ("In days of old"), #5 ("Leather Bottel") and #20 ("Teacher of Express"). Hatton makes a number of interesting textual corrections and changes, and occasionally adds editorial remarks and such. In "Comic Song," for instance, he crosses out the line "I think I shall faint, I feel so queer" and inks in "I shall die an old maid, I fear." To "The Little Fat Grey Man," Hatton crosses out a dozen lines with a large "X" and pastes in a 3½" X 2¼" slip on which he has penned alternate lyrics. On "Mr. Brown&#39;s Serenade," Hatton crosses out two lines near the bottom, draws a line to the facing page and pens two new lines. He writes in the margin, "J. Boosey for his &#39;Numerous Song Book&#39; -- June 4, 1874" (certainly referring to the British music publisher). And below this clipping, he adds, "Very good -- first rate affect always. J.L.H. 1874." Below the clipping of "King Canute and the Cold Water Cure," Hatton writes: "I think John Parry did this -- but I never saw it in print. J.L.H. 1874" -- most likely referring to John Orlando Parry (1810-79), Welch singer and pianist. Below the "A Dinner in London" clipping, he writes "don&#39;t like it much." Hatton pens a measure of miniscule music in the margins of the "William Tell" clipping, then adds below the clipping: "a first rate song. J.L.H. 1874." Below the "Little Red Riding Hook" clipping, he remarks "rather too long." He changes the title of "Mr. Lewis Thomas" (called "O Ruddier" in his index), crossing out "Lewis Thomas" and writing in "Weiss." Perhaps most interesting of all are two holograph fair copies penned by Hatton. The first is a five-page holograph fair copy of "The Cock Sparrow" which Hatton has tipped in -- #36 in his index. The second is a four-page, eight-stanza song titled "Legend of the Rotunda" -- #41 in his index. All in all a fascinating insight into this composer&#39;s work -- highly unusual.

        West Point Chaplain French?s lengthy letter to the Secretary of War and a Jefferson Davis free franked envelope

      West Point, July 17, 1861 West Point Chaplain French?s lengthy letter to the Secretary of War: ?There are attempts to impeach my loyalty ... expostulated with Jefferson Davis pointing out measures under the Constitution, and showing the dangers and folly of secession ... I advised bringing President Lincoln incognito to Washington, more than a month before the inauguration, and the forming of a perfect chain of offensive and defensive measures, between Mr. Buchanan, Mr. Lincoln and Genl Scott...?Rev. John W. French (1808-1871) was Chaplain of the House of Representatives from 1841 until 1856 when he was appointed Chaplain and Professor of Geography, History, and Ethics at the Military Academy at West Point by President Franklin Pierce. He was notified of his appointment by Pierce?s Secretary of War, Jefferson Davis, West Point, Class of 1828. They remained friends for life. This friendship caused some to question French?s loyalty at the outbreak of the Civil War. French served at West Point until his death in 1871.

        Reise der öesterreichischen Fregatte Novara um die Erde , in den Jahren 1857,1858, 1859

      Vienna: 1861-, 1862. Three volumes, quarto, numerous folding maps and illustrations, folding map in rear endpaper sleeve of the first volume; a few points of wear affect the joints but a fine bright set overall. Scarce record of the only major Austrian exploring expedition and circumnavigation. Under the command of Captain Bernard von Wüllerstorf-Urbair, the Novara travelled extensively throughout Oceania throughout 1857-1859 and visited both Australia and New Zealand. These three volumes form part of the official publication of the scientific results of the voyage. The author, Dr. Karl von Scherzer, was an anthropologist and linguist, and accordingly here contributes the ethnological description of the scientific results. At the encouragement of the former governor of New Zealand, with whom Captain Wüllerstorf-Urbair conversed while resting in Cape Town, the expedition visited Auckland where the Austrian geologists conducted skilful surveys in the volcanic regions of the North Island. Two Maori men, Wiremu Toeto and Hemera Rerehau, boarded the Novara and eventually returned to Austria. Here they joined the lavish welcoming parade, were feted by Viennese society, and eventually trained in the art of printing and lithography before returning to New Zealand. Before leaving Vienna, they were presented with a printing press, including fonts and associated tools, by the Emperor Franz Joseph. Interestingly, Dr. Scherzer himself trained as a typographer before commencing university studies, and may well have played a part in the training of Wiremu Toeto and Hemera Rerehau. The scientific results were published in 22 volumes over some 16 years. These three volumes by Dr. Scherzer form the first three volumes of the complete set, noted by Howgego for its scarcity. An abridged version was published shortly afterwards, and other contemporary editions included English and Italian translations.

        The Burke and Wills Exploring Expedition : an account of the crossing the continent of Australia, from Cooper&#39;s Creek to Carpentaria. Reprinted from "The Argus

        [ artifact, History of Computing ] Fuller&#39;s Time Telegraph and Palmer&#39;s Computing Scale : Fuller&#39;s Telegraphic Computer with Portfolio and Instructions [ Rare English Edition ]

      John E. Fuller, 1861. Hardcover. Good. 11.25 inches by 11.25 inches. 1/2 inch thick including instruction portfolio. Pressed paper construction with lithographed overlay, and edges with decorative paper borders in a tartan design, the whole lacquered. Each "side" has a rotating volvelle with scales,although oddly there is no recessed section as in the American version to use for easier turning. A metal rivet through the center holds the 2 discs in place. There is some minor loss to the papered border finish. Both volvelles appear stuck, likely due to expansion of the inner discs. We have not attempted to force the issue, as the whole is in remarkable condition and is the first English version of this we&#39;ve handled. The cloth portfolio case and instructions are complete, noting several tears and separations to the chart in back, and the instruction section being separated from the portfolio. The spine panel of the portfolio case also has several tears. Hardcover. Palmer&#39;s Computing Scale is one of the most desirable artifacts for those who collect early American Slide Rules and calculating devices. It was designed by Mr. Aaron Palmer and Mr. George G Smith in early 1841. A prototype was shown in early 1842, and later in Boston in the fall of 1843. Feazel notes that the rule&#39;s first commercial appearance was in January 1844. This first circular rule had a front volvelle, and instructions printed on the rear. Feazel further notes Mr. John E. Fuller purchased the copyrights to the device from Palmer, and in 1845 copyrighted the Time Telegraph. This second device was affixed to the rear of Palmer&#39;s Computing Scale, and "how to" instructions were provided in a separate cloth case with foldout and instructions (not present here). There were various versions of this device produced from 1845 to 1871. Colin Barnes (Slide Rule Gazette, Issue 6, Autumn 2005) notes that initially these devices were only known in the United States. But he discovered several examples in the Whipple Museum (Cambridge, England), which had telltales indicating that they were also available in England. Among other things, the scales have tartan designs around the edges, and have a new scale and notation on the face "or Pounds, Shillings & Pence." We offer here an example of the rare English edition (the first we&#39;ve seen), with the ever elusive instruction portfolio. The tartan pattern around the edge of the Scale is the first of the three examples in Barnes&#39; article. The portfolio has minor textual changes on the covers, and the instruction book is 22 pages rather than the usual 14. We believe it dates to after 1861, as Hamlin is noted as Vice President under Lincoln. A rare example of this early circular slide rule. Also see Origins of Cyberspace #353. See Origins of Cyberspace #302 and Journal of the Oughtred Society Vol 3 No 1 and Vol 4 no 1 for more information.

        J.M. Stuart&#39;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]

      Adelaide: Ordered by the House of Assembly to be printed, 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&#39;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&#39;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 &#39;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…&#39;. 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&#39;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&#39;s next expedition to cross the continent in direct competition with Burke and Wills. Published as House of Assembly paper 65 of 1861.

        The Burke and Wills Exploring Expedition? with portraits and biographical sketches of Robert O'Hara Burke, and William John Wills

      Wilson and Mackinnon, Melbourne 1861 - Octavo, iv, 36 pp. (last blank), with a striking lithographic portrait frontispiece of both explorers (later portrait of Wills pasted to rear of frontispiece), a little foxing of the frontispiece and title-page yet a wonderfully preserved copy in original green titling wrappers housed in a navy quarter morocco bookform box. A pristine copy in the original wrappers: with the frontispiece. Scarce and desirable contemporary booklet reprinting vital accounts of the Burke and Wills tragedy, issued shortly after news of the calamity had reached Melbourne. Its anonymous editor states it was 'not put forth as a history of the Exploring Expedition. It is but the last sad chapter of a sad history?'. Overall this is a serious work, with a postscript lamenting that public hysteria surrounding recent events has diminished the dignity of the perished explorers: 'that for the moment the grandeur of the enterprise, the success of which has been so dearly purchased, is almost overborne by the mass of puerility and littleness to which the subject has given birth.' Although slim, the minute type of the booklet contains several important testimonies and manuscript entries; including a note sent by Alfred William Howitt from Portia Creek dated 10 October 1861, Burke's last despatch, the narrative of the sole surviving member of the expedition John King, lengthy extracts from the journals of Howitt and Wills and an assortment of notes from Burke scrawled in the desperate last weeks of his life. Wantrup notes a number of different Wilson & Mackinnon imprints of this title, testament to insatiable public curiosity surrounding the tragedy. All are based upon the "Argus" newspaper accounts; this particular edition is the first to feature the unusually sensitive and detailed frontispiece portrait. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Staten Island and the Narrows: from Fort Hamilton

In the foreground, a man, woman and child stand on the bank of Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn, while horse-drawn carriages ride along the shore. Fort Lafayette, sits on a small island in the the middle-ground. Frances Flora Bond Palmer, known as Fanny, worked for Nathaniel Currier for more than twenty-five years. She was, according to Gloria Deak, "the foremost woman lithographer of her time" ( Picturing America , 647). Born and raised in England by a cultivated family, she was already an accomplished painter and lithographer when she came to America in 1844, at which time she exhibited two works at the National Academy of Design. By 1849, she was working for Currier producing landscapes and still lifes. She lithographed these prints herself, usually after her own sketches.

        Habeas Corpus. The Proceedings in the Case of John Merryman, of Baltimore County, Maryland, before the Hon. Roger Brooke Taney,

      Baltimore: Lucas Brothers, 1861. First. pamphlet. very good(-). Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. 24pp. 8vo, original printed wrappers, remnants of 19th century manuscript on front and back wrappers with published lettering on front wrapper legible, spine ends lightly worn, wrappers lightly soiled. Baltimore: Lucas Brothers, 1861. First Edition Page one is a statement of the case by John Merryman. Pages 9-24 are the full text of the judicial opinion of Chief Justice Taney in the case of Ex parte Merryman. Chief Justice Taney decided, in his position as a federal circuit judge, that according to the Constitution, only Congress, not President Lincoln, could suspend the writ of habeas corpus. In 1861, there was civil unrest in Maryland. President Lincoln declared martial law there. He suspended the writ of habeas corpus and ordered his military officers in Maryland to ignore the enforcement of it. John Merryman, a pro-confederate member of the Maryland militia, was arrested by Union troops for treason. Merryman was held at Fort McHenry and petitioned for a writ of habeas corpus. Chief Justice Taney granted the petition, but it was ignored by the arresting officer under Lincoln&#39;s orders. Taney then issued his famous ruling that the President, nor military officers, had the right to suspend a writ of habeas corpus. Taney considered President Lincoln&#39;s actions unconstitutional. Lincoln ignored Taney&#39;s ruling and other court rulings that affirmed Taney&#39;s ruling. The issue of the suspension of a writ of habeas corpus ended on February 14, 1862, when President Lincoln ordered most political prisoners released on parole.
