        Diplomatisches Korrespondenzarchiv 1861.

      Paris, Rom, Neapel, Florenz, Wien, München u. v. a. O., September 1860 bis Januar 1862 sowie vereinzelte Schreiben aus den Jahren 1854-1858. - Zus. 257 Briefe und Korrespondenzstücke in zumeist französischer, aber auch italienischer und deutscher Sprache. Auf Nadeln geheftet in zeitgenöss. halblederner "Biblorhapte"-Korrespondenzmappe (von L. Girard) mit goldgepr. Rückenschildchen "Correspondance", Marmorvorsätzen und Heftvorrichtung aus Messing. Gr.-8vo. Der Diplomat und Staatsmann Eugene d' Halwin Marquis de Piennes, aus einer alten picardischen Familie, die seit dem 16. Jahrhundert am Ärmelkanal ansässig war, diente seit den 1850er Jahren als Botschaftssekretär in Lissabon, Petersburg und Rom, wo er sich mit dem Bildhauer Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux anfreundete, dessen Förderer er wurde. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Frankreich im Jahre 1862 wurde er Generalrat seines Heimatdépartements Manche, als welcher er bis 1870 wirkte, und Bürgermeister seiner Heimatstadt Périers. Als Kammerherr der Kaiserin Eugénie (1863) führte er Carpeaux in den Hof ein; auch erwirkte er die Freigabe der Mittel zur Restaurierung des Mont-St-Michel und setzte sich für die Förderung der Region Périers ein. Nach dem Ende des Kaiserreiches zog er sich aus der Politik zurück und ging nach Kroatien, wo er den von Baron Maurice de Hirsch finanzierten Bau der Balkan-Eisenbahn beaufsichtigte. Seine umfangreiche Kunstsammlung schenkte er der Strossmayer'schen Gemäldegalerie am Museum von Zagreb. Er starb in Vrbovec bei Zagreb. - Piennes' vorliegende diplomatische Korrespondenz betrifft zeitbedingt vielfach die italienischen Unabhängigkeitskriege Garibaldis und den Einigungsprozess Italiens durch Viktor Emanuel II. Unter den Korrespondenten finden sich Antoine Alfred Agénor Hzg. v. Gramont (franz. Staatsmann und Diplomat, 1819-80), Fürst Wladyslaw (Ladislas) Czartoryski (polnischer Exilpolitiker und Kunstsammler, 1828-94) und Jules DuCros-Aubert (franz. Diplomat, 1833-81); von besonderem Interesse ist ein mitgeheftetes Kärtchen, das in farbigem, grobem Privatdruck (Kartoffeldruckverfahren o. ä. in rot mit grüner Umrahmung) den Wahlspruch "V[i]v[a] Vittorio Emanuele Re d'Italia" und verso das Wappen von Savoyen-Piemont trägt. - Kopfstehend eingeheftet in Biblorhapte-Ordner mit dem großen, illustrierten Händleretikett der Papeterie "J. Bouillotte & M. Buzenet" in der Rue St. Denis, Paris. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Autograph letter signed "I. Moscheles" to the pianist and composer Louis Brassin

      2 pp. of a bifolium. With integral address panel. Dated Leipzig, January 18, 1862. In German (with translation). Moscheles thanks Brassin for sending two volumes of his concert etudes. "No doubt, there will be much for me to praise, and with that conviction in mind, I am very happy to accept the dedication of the 3rd volume." He goes on to make suggestions in a postscript regarding how Brassin indicates tempi, and lists the 15 accidentals that he noticed missing when playing through the first etude. Slightly worn; uniform light browning; creased at folds; edges slightly browned. . A Bohemian pianist and composer of Jewish descent, Moscheles was one of Vienna's most popular pianists, "hailed as an equal and friend by Clementi and J.B. Cramer." He met the 15-year-old Mendelssohn in 1824 in Berlin and "gave him some finishing lessons on the piano." He went on to became principal professor of piano at the Leipzig Conservatory in 1846, recently founded by Mendelssohn. Known also as a conductor, Moscheles led the first London performance of Beethoven's Missa solemnis in 1832 and very successful performances of the Ninth Symphony in 1837 and 1838. "Hanslick assessed Moscheles as one of the last great representatives of the Classical school and also the beginner of a new epoch.""The majority of Moscheles’s compositional output is piano music; some, including the sonatas, is of lasting consequence... Schumann considered Moscheles one of the best sonata composers of his generation... His piano method is best represented in his sets of studies, which are still used: Schumann saw these as bridging the gap between the age of Clementi and that of Chopin and being indebted to Bach’s Clavier-Ãœbung." Jerome Roche and Henry Roche in Grove onlineLouis Brassin (1840-1884), the addressee, was a member of a well-known family of Belgian musicians that included his brothers, pianist Leopold Brassin and violinist Gerhard Brassin.

        Autograph letter signed to Charles Tilston Bright.

      London 1862 - Airy, George Biddell (1801-92). A.L.s. to Charles Tilston Bright. London, August 15, 1862. 4pp. 188 x 119 mm. Provenance: Latimer Clark.Airy served as Great Britain's astronomer royal from 1835 to 1881, and was a noted critic and frequent adversary of Charles Babbage. In 1862 he undertook the task of determining the difference in longitude between Greenwich and Valentia, Ireland, the European landing point for the first Atlantic cable, which had failed four years earlier. The observations were made with the aid of time signals transmitted from Greenwich to Valentia by telegraph, using some of the cable laid for the failed 1858 venture, and Airy's letter to Bright, a founding member of Cyrus Field's Atlantic Telegraph Company, expresses his gratitude for the opportunity:"We have at length finished the practical part of our operations for the Valentia longitude, and I trust successfully. . . . For the opportunity of doing it at all, we are entirely indebted to your kindness-in the retention of the Valentia wires, when there was hardly any reason for the retention except the prospect of our work, and in the favourable introduction to your brother [Edward Bright] and to the B. & I. M. T. [British and Irish Magnetic Telegraph] Company. . . . The signals were transmitted without difficulty and in an excellently observable state when the weather was reasonably good. In some of the heavy Irish showers, they were rather weak, but never too faint for observation."The operation was naturally protracted by the impossibility of securing in every case transits at Greenwich, transits at Valentia, and galvanic signals. But the principal cause of delay was the irregularity of some clerk, name and station unknown . . . who did not always follow out your brother's regularity in establishing connexions. We imagine him to be an Irishman and entitled to use the national privilege of irregularity, and accordingly we forgive him heartily, and thank him for the connexions which he did make. . . ."Airy had been consulted about the feasibility of submarine telegraphy prior to the laying of the first Atlantic cable, his opinion at the time being that it was "a mathematical impossibility to submerge a cable at so great a depth" (quoted in Carter 1968, 125).

        Atlas Ichthyologique des Indes Orientales Néêrlandaises. Publié sous les auspices du Gouvernement Colonial Néêrlandais.

      - Amsterdam, F. Muller, 1862-1865. Volumes 1-5 (of 9) volumes. Folio (450 x 295 mm). With 240 plates of which 238 superbly chromo-lithographed. Later half cloth library bindings, the last volume loose in original printed wrappers. There is no title to volume 5 and the text runs from page 1-96 (of 152), the plates 232-240 belong to volume 6, library stamp on titles. A complete copy has 9 vols and 420 plates and was published from 1862 to 1878. A magnificent ichthyological atlas, the most splendid work on fishes of the nineteenth century. It is the only major work on the fishes of the Indo-Pacific ocean. In 1845 Bleeker started his project, however the first printing was realised 18 years later. Due to his death the work remained unfinished. During his life Bleeker sent more than 12.000 fishes from the East Indian Archipelago to Holland. The edition of the present work must have been very small as Bleeker in his biography mentions only 60 subscribers. The plates are splendidly executed after drawings by L. Speigler and chromolithographed by C.W. Mieling and later by Emrik & Binger. According to Junk, Rara p. 140 'les planches chromo-lithographiées sont d'une exécution magnifique et sont en effet les meilleures que la litérature moderne d'Ichthyologie a produit. Bleeker est l'auteur le plus fertile de sa science'.The volumes are composed as follows: I. Scaroïdes et Labroïdes; II. Siluroïdes, Chacoïdes et Hétérobranchoïdes; III. Cyprins; IV. Murènes, Synbranches, Leptocéphales; V. Baudroies, Ostracions, Gymnodontes, Balistes.Junk, Rara 140; Nissen ZBI, 409. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Prelude to Disaster: Lovell Weakens New Orleans in a Futile Attempt to Shore Up Fort Donelson

      New Orleans, LA 1862 - Autograph Letter Signed, to Albert Sidney Johnston. New Orleans, La., February 7, 1862. 1 p., 8 x 11 in. In February 1862, General Mansfield Lovell sends reinforcements to Albert Sidney Johnston, the chief Confederate commander in the West, so he can defend Nashville and Fort Donelson. The move was fruitless; Fort Donelson fell to Union troops a week after this letter was written. With: a carte-de-visite of Lovell in Confederate uniform. New York & Washington: Brady's National Photographic Portrait Gallery, [ca. 1862].Partial Transcript "Capt. Gibson's battery (21 rifled 6 pdrs. and two 12 pdr. Howitzers) has been detained for want of transportation, but will leave tomorrow morning for Nashville. Capt. Bains has received his battery, and with the exception of a portion of his harness, is ready to proceed to join your command; but as his company is totally uninstructed, I have thought it best to retain them at their encampment in the Jackson Rail Road to drill and be reduced to something like discipline. If however, you desire to have the guns and men, I would prefer to have the men instructed at Nashville. I shall order them there upon the receipt of a telegram to that effect from you."Historical BackgroundA day before Lovell wrote this letter, Ulysses S. Grant had forced the surrender of Fort Henry, Tennessee. The loss prompted Confederate Western Department commander General Albert Sidney Johnston to abandon his position at Bowling Green, Kentucky and fall back towards Nashville. A week later, on February 16, Fort Donelson, Tennessee, fell. The Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers had been opened, and all of western Tennessee, northern Mississippi, and northern Alabama were exposed to Union invasion. Johnston adopted the strategic thinking of P.G.T. Beauregard, his new second-in-command, and concentrated most of the men in the western theater on a climactic battle against Ulysses S. Grant. In the resulting Battle of Shiloh, (April 6-7, 1862) Johnson himself was killed. He was the highest-ranking officer to die in battle on either side in the Civil War.In the aftermath of the Battle of Shiloh, New Orleans lay exposed to Union attack from the north, while to the south, Admiral David G. Farragut's Mississippi River fleet broke the Confederate defenses on the Mississippi River at Forts Jackson and St. Philip. The two forts protected New Orleans, but Farragut bypassed them in the dark, early morning hours of April 24. He then prevailed over Confederate Captain John Stevenson's overmatched fleet. Lovell began to evacuate New Orleans over the next few days, well before Union General Benjamin Butler's army was in a position to threaten its works. Lovell's evacuation order probably cost him his career; he was investigated by a court of inquiry and never again commanded troops in the field. Butler occupied the Crescent City on May 1.Mansfield Lovell (1822-1884) was a West Point graduate from Washington, D.C., who was seriously wounded at Belen Gate in the Mexican War. In October 1861, he was appointed major general in the Confederate Army and assigned to command in New Orleans. Under Lovell, the Confederates lost New Orleans, but he was hampered by deficiencies in men and materiel and was subsequently cleared of responsibility. However, he never again obtained high command.Albert S. Johnston (1803-1862) of Kentucky graduated from West Point, where he befriended Jefferson Davis, in 1828. He went to Texas, where he served as aide-de-camp to Sam Houston's revolutionary army, and rose to command Texas forces briefly in 1837. He also served as Secretary of War for the short-lived Republic of Texas. Johnston fought under Zachary Taylor in the Mexican War, was colonel of the 2nd U.S. Cavalry on the Texas frontier, led troops in the Utah wars, and commanded the Department of the Pacific before the Civil War. In 1861, he was appointed full general (second after Samuel Cooper) with command of all Confederate for. (See website for full description)

Mercuri percorse l?Europa e soprattutto l?Italia, visitando chiese, conventi, palazzi, musei, biblioteche, ospedali e altri luoghi pubblici, dove ritrasse i costumi di persone, per lo più celebri e nobili, traendole da dipinti, affreschi, sculture, messali, miniature, medaglie, monete dei maggiori artisti.

        Le Jardin Fruitier du Muséum ou iconographie de toutes les espèces et variétés d'arbres fruitier cultivés dans cet établissement, avec leur description, leur histoire, leur synonymie.

      - Paris, F. Didot, 1862-1875. 9 volumes. Folio (295 x 212mm). With 508 (almost all) colour-printed engraved- or chromolithographed plates finished by hand. Contemporary red half calf, gilt ornamented spines (ends of spine a bit chipped, one hinge splitting) . Nissen BBI, 456; not listed by Dunthorne and Pritzel. Extremely rare iconographie on fruit with superb large plates, of which the first 6 volumes depict pears, volume VII peaches, volume VIII peaches (remaining part), prunes and apricots, and the last volume strawberries and currants. The colour-printed engraved illustrations are signed: A. Riocreux del. & Mlle. E. Taillant sc., and the chromolithographed ones: A. Riocreux del., G. Severyns, chromolit. Brux. & Mlle. E. Taillant sc. "The most sensitive and skilful French botanical artist of the period was Alfred Riocreux (1820-1912), who may be considered the Paris counterpart of Walter Hood Fitch . Trained by his father, the boy progressed so rapidly with drawing and painting that the sketches which he made at the age of thirteen were considered worth preserving at Sèvres. The botanist Adolphe Théodore Brongniart (1801-76), whose father had also been employed at Sèvres, directed the attention of the young Riocreux to botany and was probably also responsible for bringing him to the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle. Here the young artist met Joseph Decaisne (1807-82), for whose superb 'Le Jardin Fruitier du Muséum' . he made the drawings ." (Blunt, pp. 229-230). G. Severyns, being responsible for the excellent chromolithographs in the above work, was the most gifted and most prominent lithographer of Belgium in the 19th century, who started his firm already in 1829 and remained the leading printing-establishment for nearly a whole century. Apart from light foxing to some of the plates a fine complete set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE CLOISTER AND THE HEARTH (First Edition in Original Cloth)

      London: Trubner, 1862. Reade, Charles. THE CLOISTER AND THE HEARTH. A Tale Of The Middle Ages. In Four Volumes. London: Trubner, 1861. First Edition. A GOOD to VERY GOOD set in original publisher's gray-green morocco gilt. Spine and a few inner hinges expertly repaired. Despite overall wear appropriate to the grade, this copy in original cloth nevertheless retains eye appeal. There is a small hole in the title page of first volume which thankfully affects no letters, a tear in the margin of title of the fourth volume now neatly repaired, a few stains, some foxing, and soiling. THE CLOISTER AND THE HEARTH is very, very difficult to find in any kind of original condition and our copy is priced to sell in comparison to equal examples ($1,500- up). Swinburne described this novel as "among the greatest masterpieces of narrative" and as recently as the 1960s, Reade's great historical novel was considered the key book for anyone attempting to put together a fine collection of Victorian fiction. Sadleir 1999. First Edition. Decorative Boards. Very Good.

One sheet folded lengthwise with 3 horizontal folds not affecting the lines of Emerson’s pen. With a trace of tape residue to the top 1/8"edge of the blank second page. A handsome letter, lacking the original envelope. Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803– 1882) was an American essayist, lecturer, and poet, who led the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States.Emerson gradually moved away from the religious and social beliefs of his contemporaries, formulating and expressing the philosophy of Transcendentalism in his 1836 essay, Nature. Following this ground-breaking work, he gave a speech entitled "The American Scholar" in 1837, which Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. considered to be America's "Intellectual Declaration of Independence".Emerson wrote most of his important essays as lectures first, then revised them for print. His first two collections of essays– Essays: First Series and Essays: Second Series, published respectively in 1841 and 1844– represent the core of his thinking, and include such well-known essays as Self-Reliance, The Over-Soul, Circles, The Poet and Experience. Together with Nature, these essays made the decade from the mid-1830s to the mid-1840s Emerson's most fertile period.Emerson wrote on a number of subjects, never espousing fixed philosophical tenets, but developing certain ideas such as individuality, freedom, the ability for humankind to realize almost anything, and the relationship between the soul and the surrounding world. Emerson's "nature" was more philosophical than naturalistic: "Philosophically considered, the universe is composed of Nature and the Soul." Emerson is one of several figures who "took a more pantheist or pandeist approach by rejecting views of God as separate from the world." (Wikipedia)

        South Australia. Constitution, Electoral, and Parliamentary Privilege Acts. May, 1862

      Adelaide: W.C. Cox, 1862. Duodecimo, 18, 52, 7 pp., original blue stiff wrappers, signature of J.D.Woods and J. Hindmarsh repeated a number of times, neat stamp for Webster collection; an excellent copy in fine original condition, spine a little frayed, preserved in handsome folding blue morocco box. Adelaide Acts: the earliest known copy. Very rare: no other copy recorded. A most appealing copy of a rare Adelaide-published legal handbook, printing three early South Australian Acts. This work is of great significance as a remarkably early Australian legal work, the more so as it has the ownership signatures of two contemporary South Australian figures influential in law and politics. The work prints the Constitution Act of 1855-6; the 1861 Electoral Act; and the 1858 Privilege Act. A single copy of a similar but later work is recorded in the State Library of New South Wales (Constitution, electoral, contractors in parliament, parliamentary privilege and issue of writs Acts, Adelaide, 1873), but we have not been able to locate any other copy of this earlier work. With the ownership signature of John Hindmarsh Junior, son of the first Governor of South Australia, who had returned to England with his mother in 1841 and trained as a barrister at the Middle Temple. Hindmarsh returned to South Australia in 1855 where he established himself in practice: the present work would have been a logical addition to his library. There is also the later ownership signature of J.D. Woods, "returning officer for West Adelaide", and known to have been active in the late-1860s and 1870s.
