        Autograph letter signed to Latimer Clark

      1862 - Saward, George. A.L.s. to Latimer Clark. Camberwell, "May Day," 1862. 4pp. 157 x 100 mm. Small holes punched in upper margin, traces of mounting present. Provenance: Latimer Clark.Saward was a founding member of Cyrus Field's Atlantic Telegraph Company, serving as the firm's secretary. His letter discusses the company's attempts to obtain financing for its second Atlantic cable venture, which took place in June 1865. Also mentioned is a growing rift between Charles Tilston Bright, another of the company's founding members, and the company's board of directors: "As regards the Atlantic we are struggling and plunging to get free from our impecuniosity but at present with no great advance. We are still however hopeful that in one way or other we may succeed. . . ."I ought not however to conceal from you that the warm & perhaps under all circumstances not unnatural, hostility of Sir Charles to our Board and the corresponding feeling of dislike on the part of some members of it come in unfortunately at this particular juncture, not as I trust to create any prejudice as against yourself but to render your own personal explanations and assurances very desirable toward the accomplishment of your views."It is feared that the influence & representations of Sir Charles have much retarded our progress with Government-if not so acted upon them as to cause the refusal of our permanent guarantee without which our hope of success is very much diminished."I mention all this in great sorrow as the severance of the connection between Bright & our company has been to some extent also the severance of a close and warm friendship between him and me. . . ."

        San Francisco, 1862. From Russian Hill

      San Francisco: Printed by L. Nagel, published by A. Rosenfield, 1862. Tinted lithograph, in five sections (14¾ x 108 inches overall), linen- backed. (Varnished, possibly contemporaneously; sectional titles trimmed close, affecting imprint). Title leaf printed on blue paper and mounted to verso of first section. "Historical Sketch of California" mounted to pastedown of front board. Bound into original folio-sized blue cloth boards, gilt device of "Buswell & Co. S.F." on front board (Upper cover detached) , in a folding cloth box. Gifford's San Francisco panorama: the most ambitious Western view of the period. This extraordinary lithograph - actually five sheets joined together totaling nine feet in length - is the first panorama of San Francisco, one of the most striking early views of that city, and the most ambitious city view undertaken in the American West up to that time. Not until Eadweard Muybridge's photographic panorama of San Francisco several decades later was the city shown so completely in a single view. "One of the rarest and most important of items relating to San Francisco" (Eberstadt). Gifford's view, taken from Russian Hill, was executed in five separate sections, each with full title information, and a text of numbered locations runs across the bottom of the entire panorama, with 121 places identified. The Presidio, Marin headlands, Mount Tamalpais, and a very underdeveloped portion of San Francisco can be seen in section one, Alcatraz and the area between Russian and Telegraph hills (including Meiggs Wharf) in section two, and Telegraph Hill and the first heavily built-up streets in section three. Section four includes the most densely settled area, along Market and Mission, stretching into section five, which goes to Mission Dolores and beyond, and which also features the Jobson Observatory on Russian Hill. Details of buildings, streets, and other features are rendered with great exactness and a stunning wealth of detail. Churches, synagogues, hospitals, the Masonic temple, wharves, and streets are all identified. "...[I]t took an ambitious project like Charles Gifford's multisectioned panorama to record completely the city's tremendous growth" (Deák). The artist, Charles Gifford, came to California in 1860, and was active until 1877. According to Reps, "Gifford's finest and most ambitious view was a sweeping panorama from Russian Hill." The view was lithographed by Louis Nagel, who had been well-known as a lithographer in New York before coming to San Francisco in 1856. Reps and Woodbridge note that the publisher, Rosenfield, made the panorama available in three versions in 1862: one, as here, printed on thin paper and mounted on cloth; another printed on single sheets on heavier paper; and a third mounted on cloth and fastened to wooden rollers. Deák and Reps locate six copies of this panorama (MWA, DLC, CU-B, CSmH, Wells Fargo, California State Pioneers). Peters calls it "important and rare." It is an incredible production, both as a landmark in western lithography, and as a view of a major American city in the midst of a period of tremendous growth.

        ATUAGAGDLIUTT. NALINGINARNIK TUSARUMINASASSUNIK UNIKÂT

      [Nuuk, Greenland: Hinrich Rink, 1862-1946, lacking the years 1884-91, 1894- 95, 1901-03].. Eighty-five volumes. Replete with illustrations, many in color. Some issues loose. First volume in original limp patterned cloth. Second volume in cloth- backed printed boards, spine repaired. Third volume in cloth- backed boards, spine worn. Fourth volume with lower half of spine and titlepage lacking. Of the remaining volumes, sixteen are in cloth-backed boards and sixty- five are in original wrappers, spines generally worn. Second volume with contemporary manuscript index, possibly by Møller. Overall very good. A tremendous run of this landmark Greenland newspaper, equally celebrated for its remarkable quality, range of content, and longevity. The fourth volume of the this set is enhanced by a presentation inscription from Lars Møller, the longtime editor and noted native lithographer, to Hinrich Rink, proprietor of Greenland's first regular press and founder of the paper. Further, the plates in the fourth volume have been hand- colored, presumably by Møller in Rink's honor. ATUAGAGDLIUTT..., translated literally as "distributed reading matter," stands alone when evaluating the impact of a single printed periodical on a native culture. The catholic editorial taste of Berthelsen and Møller not only brought the world's great literature to the doors of native Greenlanders, but did so in a manner that accomplished dual milestones in Greenlandic cultural history. First, by printing entirely in the native language, they transmitted the worldly canon, much of it for the first time, in a manner readily understandable by their readership. This resulted in a near instant removal of substantive cultural gaps between Greenland and Europe. Second, foreign epics and tales were often set alongside traditional native legends, equating their value with those of the outside world. In result, the success of ATUAGAGDLIUTT... was a point of national pride. Avidly consumed by its readership, its pages were shared, clipped, and culled to the point of near extinction. To date, five (at most) complete runs exist, entirely in public institutions in Denmark and Greenland. One additional set resides in private hands. Only nine institutions in the United States possess comparable runs, to varying degrees of completeness. The founders of ATUAGAGDLIUTT... include some of the most prominent men in the history of Greenlandic printing. The prime mover behind its creation, Hinrich Rink, first came to Greenland from Denmark in 1848, quickly rising to the position of royal inspector for South Greenland. In 1855 he began printing small pamphlets from a late 18th-century press left behind by Greenland's "first" printer, Jesper Brodersen, whose total known output is one small pamphlet done in 1793. In 1857 he installed a new press imported from Copenhagen, in effect becoming Greenland's first regular printer. Rink was soon joined by Rasmus Berthelsen, a native Greenlander who proved a quick study talented enough to become the paper's first editor when it was launched in 1861. Apprenticed to Berthelsen was Lars Møller, the son of a carpenter who, under the tutelage of Berthelsen and Rink, learned nearly every facet of the printing trade, including lithography. It was Møller who printed the ATUAGAGDLIUTT... from its earliest days, and he was responsible for a majority of the numerous lithographs. Accomplished as he was, the success of Møller's lithographs was due entirely to the instinctual talent of the original artist, the legendary Aron of Kangeq. While bedridden with tuberculosis, Aron received a visit from Rink, who had heard of Aron's considerable talent from other natives. According to Oldendow, "Rink...sent him paper, coloured pencils, and the necessary tools for woodcutting and with no instruction what so ever Aron produced over two hundred woodcuts and watercolors." His ability to illustrate both foreign and native legend alike secured his reputation, and his contributions were an invaluable addition to the paper. Berthelsen continued as editor for twelve years until 1874, when Møller succeeded him. The combined talents of the paper's staff notwithstanding, success, let alone survival, was far from assured. Working in the forbidding Greenland climate, Rink and his assistants were faced with numerous shortages and hurdles that make their considerable accomplishment all the more remarkable. Ink was often wanting, substituted frequently with a homemade variety made from boiling varnish and soot. Paper needed to be moistened to accept the ink, but often it would freeze before it could be put to use. Most serious of all was the large language barrier between Møller and Rink which, fortunately, was overcome thanks to Møller's diligent study and a well-timed training trip to Denmark. Despite disadvantageous circumstances, the small crew was determined, and when they found themselves without, they improvised. This steadfast dedication was due, above all, to Rink's abounding love of his adopted home and its people. From the moment of his arrival, Rink sought to learn as much as possible about native culture. He undertook countless overland and boat journeys throughout the land, staying with local families whenever possible. He began to develop an idea of what a Greenland periodical could be, and tried to convey this notion in the advertising leaflets he issued prior to publication. When publication began in January 1861, it was clear Rink had imbued the young Berthelsen with the same enthusiasm, and after Møller assumed editorship, this cultural fervor erupted. Year after year the newspaper contained "innumerable articles written both by and for Greenlanders - on hunting conditions and famous lives, on public events and memorable occasions at home and abroad, novels and stories translated into Greenlandic, legends, articles, official decrees..." (Oldendow). Equally important was how Møller stretched the language to fit his needs. When a foreign object or idea lacked a Greenlandic equivalent, Møller invented one. The cultural consequences of the publication of ATUAGAGDLIUTT... are extreme, as its longevity attests. That this venture, unique among indigenous cultures, took root in a North American language is significant and offers ample opportunity for comparison to other frontier native language presses, such as those at Park Hill and Harbor Springs. What is immediately clear is that ATUAGAGDLIUTT... brought world and native culture to life in vivid detail, free of religious constraints and with no overt didactic purpose. This circumstance alone makes ATUAGAGDLIUTT... a North American language production of the greatest interest. "The results were slow in coming, but come they did, and ATUAGAGDLIUTT's finest achievement would seem to be that quietly and gradually it caused the Greenlanders to grow as a people; it welded them together into a whole, until little by little they learned to notice things outside their immediate daily life and the narrow boundaries of their isolated land. Throughout its many years of publication it helped the Greenlanders to develop from an Esquimo community into a people" - Oldendow. Knud Oldendow, THE SPREAD OF PRINTING. WESTERN HEMISPHERE. GREENLAND (Amsterdam: Vangendt & Co., 1969), pp.46-57, passim.

        Panorama of the Seat of War. Birds Eye View of Kentucky and Tennessee showing Cairo and part of the southern states

      New York: John Bachmann, [no date but 1862]. Chromolithograph, by Bachmann. Small expert marginal repairs. 22 3/4 x 31 inches. A fine copy of this bird's-eye by Bachmann, 'one of the finest American artists and lithographers specializing in bird's-eye views' (Stephenson & McKee), recalling a pivotal moment in the Civil War. 'Bachmann did six views of the Confederate States like this one ... They are very rare.' (Rumsey). The clouds of smoke over Fort Donelson show that this image is intended to recall a moment in time between February 11th and the 16th, 1862, when Brigadier General Ulysses S. Grant besieged and secured the surrender of Fort Donelson. The 12,000-stong garrison's unconditional surrender was a major victory for the Union and a catastrophe for the South: Kentucky stayed in the Union as a result, and Tennessee became vulnerable to a Northern advance along the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers. Grant, who received the nickname 'Unconditional Surrender', was also promoted to Major General, and came to be considered as an important figure in the western theater of the war. Stephenson Civil War Maps (1989) 23.5; Rumsey 2657; Reps p.160 ('No finer artist of city views worked in America than John Bachmann. Unfortunately, there is no artist about whom less is known')

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JESSE GRANT TO GOVERNOR TOD OF OHIO DEFENDING THE HONOR OF HIS SON, GEN. ULYSSES S. GRANT AND HIS CONDUCT AT SHILOH]

      Cincinnati. July 11, 1862.. 3pp., docketed on verso. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Minor soiling. Remnants of old mount on right edge of blank leaf. Very good. In a tan half morocco clamshell case, spine gilt. Just months after the bloody and close-run battle of Shiloh, Jesse Grant, the father of Ulysses S. Grant, writes to Governor David Tod of Ohio defending the general's honor and conduct at the battle. Ohio regiments had suffered near 2,000 casualties in the Battle of Shiloh, and the younger Grant was a native son of the state. His family still lived there, including his father, a tanner by trade. Jesse Grant begins his letter by recommending one Col. Wiltsie who "has expressed his patriotic desire to serve his country in a military capasity, & if I were clothed with an appointing power I would not hesitate to appoint him." Grant proceeds to provide Governor Tod some reasons why he believes there have been such negative feelings toward his son in the wake of Shiloh, where Grant eked a bitter victory out of near defeat. He first blames the press: "In the first place he has refused to quarter Newspaper reporters on the Army at the expence of the Government. That has caused the whole fraternity of scriblers [sic] to unite against him to put him down, & Editors who have Reporters in the field, misled by their lying Reporters, and to be revenged on him for not providing for their reporters have also greatly abused him." He continues, blaming General Buell and deserters from the army: "Then there is Buell & his army have found it necesy. to draw public attention from their short comings to unite with them. Then again there is the five thousand cowards who threw down their arms deserted the standard of their country & their comrades in arms in the midst of danger, and sought safety under the banks of the Tennessee, & prayed for the rocks & hills to fall on them to hide them from the fury of Beauregard, & his army, they too must have some excuse for conduct, hence the cry of 'surprise' there which nothing could be more absurd." Grant relates in detail his son's strategic moves on the battlefield at Shiloh and concludes, "And this is the Gen. your subaltern would have shot while he would justify the five thousand scedadlers - shame on such a demagogue." U.S. Grant had been deeply depressed after Shiloh, and was temporarily relieved of his command. This probably played a major part in Jesse Grant's defense of his son. But Lincoln continued to have confidence in Grant, and his hard campaigning in the first half of 1863, culminating in his victory at Vicksburg in July, marked him as the best general the North possessed. A wonderful letter.

      1862. A Very Fine Set of George Grote’s “History of Greece”GROTE, George. A History of Greece; From the Earliest Period to the Close of the Generation Contemporary with Alexander the Great. A New Edition. In Eight Volumes. With Portrait, Maps, and Plans. London: John Murray, 1862.Eight octavo volumes (8 1/2 x 5 9/16 inches; 215 x 141 mm.). Engraved frontispiece portrait in Volume I, engraved maps and plans (some folding, some hand-colored).Bound ca. 1900 by Zaehnsdorf for John Wanamaker (stamp-signed on the verso of the front free endpaper) in full tan calf. Covers with gilt double fillet border with gilt corner ornaments, spines richly tooled in gilt with five wide slightly raised bands and red and green morocco gilt lettering labels, board edges decoratively ruled in gilt, turn-ins decoratively tooled in gilt, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. A very fine set.“Although as biased as Macaulay’s History of England and less scholarly than Mommsen’s ‘Roman History’, Grote’s History of Greece can be bracketed with these two works. Like them, it was received with universal acclamation, was translated into French and German, shaped the European conception of its subject-matter throughout the nineteenth century, and still merits respect as a monument of industrious Victorian scholarship” (Printing and the Mind of Man 321 describing the first edition).Brunet II, col. 1764.

        Cygnus ferus [The Whistling or Wild Swan]

      [London: by the Author, 1862 - 1873]. Hand-coloured lithograph by J.Wolf and H.C.Richter, printed by Walter. Wove paper. 14 1/8 x 21 1/4 inches. A beautiful image from John Gould's 'The Birds of Great Britain': 'A magnificent work with life-like portraits of birds of the British Isles'. (Wood) This plate, from what Sacheverell Sitwell called 'The most popular of all his works' ('Fine Bird Books'), shows a new liveliness of treatment that is not present in Gould's earlier works. This is thanks to suggestions made by Joseph Wolf, who drew 57 of the plates and accompanied Gould on an ornithological tour of Scandinavia in 1856. Gould's illustrations were all painstakingly coloured by hand, as he states in his Preface: "Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however, is not the case; every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand. Cf.Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf. Nissen IVB 372; cf. Sauer 23; cf. Wood p. 365; cf. Zimmer p. 261.

"Ever since its publication in 1862, Les Miserables has remained one of the most widely read novels in the world... Indeed, its appearance was a unique phenomenon in the history of publishing, by the scope of its success among the elite as well as the people, national as well as international, with general readers as well as critics. In addition, dozens of film version- from France, the United States, Italy, Egypt, India, Japan, and the Soviet Union- have perpetuated the legendary quality of the book... Perhaps more than any other work of literature, Victor Hugo's novel has flourished as part of our international consciousness" (Kathryn M. Grossman, Hugo's Romantic Sublime).

        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.
