        Snow - Flakes and the Stories they told the Children. Illustrated by H.K. Browne.

      Sampson Low Son & Co 1862 - frontispiece, additional title-page, and 10 pages of text printed in colour (the last page with a light pencil scribble over image), pp. 46, [2], 8vo, original green cloth blocked overall in blind, a central frame and illustration on front board blocked in gilt, spine also blocked in gilt, gutta-percha partially perished with title-pages and first leaf of text consequently loose, ownership inscriptions on front flyleaf of T. Tindall Wildridge and ‘C.L. Dodgson’, with printed booklabel ‘This was the property of Lewis Carroll’ to front board, a bit rubbed, sound The inscription ‘C.L. Dodgson’, although in purple ink like Dodgson famously used, is clearly not by him, being written using a broad-nibbed pen and in handwriting completely alien to Dodgson’s personal style. It could be an early (and poor) forgery, or it could be a later addition meant to confirm a known (or believed) provenance. The ‘Property label’ on the front board, according to Lovett, was ‘perhaps.provided for buyers who wished to identify their purchases’ at the Sotheby’s 1902 sale of books purportedly from Carroll’s library and seems not to go back any further than there. This particular title is not listed by Lovett in Lewis Carroll Among His Books, or in any of the sources reproduced in Stern’s Lewis Carroll, Bibliophile.However, absence of positive evidence there is not proof that the book did not belong to Dodgson. The next owner, Thomas Tindall Wildridge, was an antiquary who is recorded as having made a group of pen-and-ink drawings of Alice and other characters, reproduced c.1910 as halfpenny postcards titled ‘A Lewis Carroll Pageant’, so his interest in owning something from Dodgson’s library would be appropriate and he may have attended the early library sales. On the other hand, he may have been duped by an unscrupulous seller who had access to the ‘Property’ labels.

        Mr. McKinlay's Explorations. Diary of Mr J. McKinlay, leader of the Burke Relief Expedition, being journal of explorations in the interior of Australia, together with chart

      Adelaide: Government printer, dated 9 October, 1862. Foolscap folio, 56 pp., four cartographic sheets, fine in recent burgundy cloth. First publication of McKinlay's exploration journal. Scarce and desirable: the first printing of the journal of John McKinlay in search of Burke and Wills, an expedition that revealed vast tracts of unknown territory in Northern Australia.In 1861 John McKinlay led the South Australian Relief Expedition in search of Burke and Wills. Although the true fate of the explorers at Cooper's Creek was revealed by Alfred Howitt and his men, it is possible that McKinlay found the remains of Charles Gray, a companion of Robert O'Hara Burke. McKinlay spoke with central desert tribesmen, who showed him the grave of a man they had killed and eaten: to this day it remains uncertain whether this was Charles Gray.Nonetheless, McKinlay and his party proceeded to explore the tropical north of Australia in the footsteps of Augustus Gregory and Ludwig Leichhardt, while making significant new discoveries. This report precedes the Melbourne published book titled McKinlay's Journals of Exploration in the Interior of Australia (Bailliere 1863) and was compiled directly from the journal presented by the explorer to the South Australian government upon his return to Adelaide in 1862. The report is notable for the four cartographic sheets, three of which comprise a detailed route map.

        Moses beschützt die Töchter des Jitro

      1862. Aquarell über Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts monogrammiert, bezeichnet und datiert: "TG Roma 1862", 28 x 40,2 cm.. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Theodor Grosse wählte für das vorliegende Aquarell eine Szene aus dem Leben Moses', die sein tatkräftiges Eintreten für die Schwachen verdeutlicht. Nachdem Moses einen Ägypter erschlagen hatte, flüchtete er nach Midian, wo er bei der Rast an einem Brunnen sieben Frauen sah, die Wasser für ihre Tiere sammelten. Andere Hirten wollten die Frauen vertreiben und Moses, der Zeuge dieser Szene wurde, trat entschlossen dazwischen und vertrieb die Hirten. Als die Frauen wieder nach Hause zurückkehrten, erzählten sie ihrem Vater Jitro (er wird auch Reguel oder Hobab genannt) davon. Dieser lud Moses zu sich ein und gab ihm seine Tochter Zippora zur Frau. Der Vergleich von Vorzeichnung und Aquarell offenbart Grosses Intention, die Szene zu monumentalisieren. Die kompakte Figurenanordnung im Entwurf erreicht noch nicht jene Betonung Moses' als zentrale Figur. Erst die Dehnung in das starke Querformat ermöglicht es Grosse, die einzelnen Gruppen stärker voneinander abzusetzen und Moses' Befehlsgestus mehr Freiraum zu gewähren. Diese an Raffael erinnernde Geste demonstriert die Macht des Moses. Unter seiner Hand ducken sich die Hirten ängstlich zur Seite und weichen zurück. Wie eine Schutzwand baut er sich zwischen den Töchtern des Jitro und den anderen Personen auf. Dass Moses die Situation durch diese bloße Geste bereits löst, steht in starkem Kontrast zu den älteren Darstellungen des Vorfalls. Bereits Sandro Botticelli hat in einem Fresko in der Sixtinischen Kapelle Moses beim Zuschlagen mit einem Stock präsentiert und Rosso Fiorentino inszenierte 1523 einen brachialen Kampf. Im 17. Jahrhundert zeigen nahezu alle Künstler, von Nicolas Poussin bis Sebastiano Ricci oder Charles le Brun, Moses bei mehr oder minder drastischer Gewaltanwendung. Diese Verlagerung entspricht Grosses Schulung an den Werken der Nazarener. Die oft emotional aufgewühlten Schlägereien des Barock weichen einer mehr kontemplativen Einfühlung. Die Ergriffenheit des Betrachters soll nicht durch Aufregung hervorgerufen werden, sondern durch stille Versenkung. Grosses Maltechnik trägt dazu bei. Die leuchtende Farbigkeit mit der klaren Linienführung lässt die Oberfläche des Blattes wie feines Porzellan erscheinen. Die Reinheit und Makellosigkeit des Bildes korrespondiert mit der Reinheit der Empfindung. Grosse hat diese Art der Flächenerscheinung bei seinen Studien der Renaissancemeister wie Raffael und Andrea del Sarto erlernt. Die auf großflächige Kontraste abzielende Farbpalette und die klare Strukturierung konnte er anhand der italienischen Fresken ebenso verinnerlichen, wie in den Werken des Nazarenerkreises um Friedrich Overbeck, die maßgeblich zur Wiederbelebung der Freskotechnik im frühen 19. Jahrhundert beitrugen. Grosse wird den auf umfassende Verbreitung abzielenden Grundgedanken der Nazarenerfresken fortführen und sich maßgeblich der Ausführung großformatiger Wandgemälde verpflichten. Seine im Zweiten Weltkrieg zerstörten Ausmalungen der östlichen Loggia im Leipziger Museum, an deren Ausführung er von 1864 bis 1872 arbeitete, begründeten dabei seinen Ruhm. Unser Aquarell ist in seiner meisterhaften Ausführung und bildhaften Erscheinung ein wichtiges Werk aus Grosses ersten Jahren in Italien und belegt nicht nur sein zu Lebzeiten viel gerühmtes Können im Umgang mit Farben und Formen, sondern auch seinen Sinn für klar strukturierte Kompositionen, die trotz der verhaltenen Emotionalität zum Mitfühlen anregen. So erweist er sich als einer der wichtigsten Künstler der religiösen Historienmalerei in der Nachfolge der Nazarener.

The secession element is yet so strong, with many in this District, that they would not be seen in the churches on that day... The Rebels were strongly fortified & in the Center where our boys were engaged our troops had no chance whatever of getting Artillery to bear on the Rebel batterys. The fire of the Rebels of Grape canister & Shrapnel on our boys who went up to storm the batteries were truly terrific but better luck next time. God works in mysterious ways..." 4 pages 5" x 8" approx. folded to 5" x 2 3/4" approx. The cover mayn't be the correct one for this letter.

        LES MISERABLES. Bruxelles, A.Lacroix, Verboeckhoven & C., 1862.

      Prima edizione. Testo francese. Opera completa in dieci volumi. Cm.21,7x13,2. Pg.4080 complessive. Buone legature coeve in mz.pelle con titoli e filetti in oro ai dorsi a quattro nervature. Tagli spruzzati. Eccellenti condizioni di conservazione. Si tratta della prima edizione assoluta del capolavoro di Hugo, pubblicato alla fine di marzo del 1862 pochi giorni prima dell'edizione parigina. Non è chiaro se la scelta dell'editore belga fosse dovuta alla necessità di sollecitare i colleghi francesi o a motivi economici. "L'idea del romanzo risaliva la 1830; poi vi era stata la stesura delle "Misères" nel 1845 - 1848 (pubblicate nel 1937); ma intanto si era fatta strada l'esperienza balzachiana di cui Hugo volle tener conto, come pure del romanzo dei bassifondi di Sue; le tendenze socialiste gli si erano accentuate ..... il romanzo dei "Misèrables" è il libro più popolare forse della letteratura europea ......" (M.Zini).

        Robert E. Lee stresses the value he puts on honesty in rejecting help from a self proclaimed English Naval officer

      "War date Letter Signed, ""R E Lee,"" 2 pages, 4.75"" x 8"" (sight), ""H[ea]d Q[uarter]s Army [of] N[orthern] V[irgini]a,"" October 14, 1862 to Confederate Secretary of War George W. Randolph concerning a prospective volunteer from England. Light toning along vertical crease, minor separation at fold intersections, else very good condition. Ornately framed with double matting, a transcription accomplished on a plaque and a full-length image of Lee. Not examined out of frame. ?Mr. Edenborough the English Naval officer concerning whom I received a letter from the Secretary of State yesterday, arrived at my Hd. Qrs. today. In a conversation with him, he admitted without hesitation that he belonged to the English East India Navy, and I suppose that his assertion that he was an officer of the Royal navy was made from a desire to increase his importance. There is nothing for him to do in this army, and my opinion of his honesty is not so much affected by his statement as to his position, as to cause me to detain him. I have accordingly given him a passport to return to Richmond where he may be able to find employment, should nothing be found to attach suspicion to his character.? Edenborough was one of many eager foreigners who came to America to fight for the Confederacy. They came for a variety of reasons. Some came out of sincere loyalty to the Confederacy, others were opportunists, who, unable to secure important or lucrative posts, tried their luck in America. In this case Lee encountered a likely opportunist, as Edenborugh deliberately misstated his affiliation with the Royal Navy when he was in fact a member of the much-less prestigious East India Navy. (During the American Revolution, Baron von Steuben similarity misrepresented his credentials to appear more accomplished than he actually was?"claiming to be a drill master for Frederick the Great). Why Edenborough would have been sent to Lee's army is perplexing considering he would have been a greater asset to the fledgling Confederate Navy. With a new naval school at Richmond, Lee sent Edenborough there where he might be better utilized. With strong economic ties (England was a major buyer of American cotton), a large British population in New Orleans, and widespread sympathy for the South?s struggle for independence, many Englishmen played active roles in the Confederacy and remained loyal through the duration of the war. An fine letter from the early years of the war, as the Confederacy worked to build itself both on land and at sea."

Stanton did not issue the order they think they can have it changed. You may rest assured I shall use every exertion to go into the Field and as Senators Wade and Chandler & others are disposed to use their influence in my behalf I am not without hopes they may be successful. If so, you may rely upon my obtaining your Regiment if possible. If you chance to visit the City, call at my office. It is still located in the same place.""

Qur's, Army of the Potomac, Washington"", the Order reads: ""Brig. General Abner Doubleday Volunteer service is assigned to duty as Inspector of the defensive works about Washington, and to the immediate charge of those on the Maryland side. By command of Major General McClellan (signed), S. Williams Office Chief of Artillery.""
