        VESSEL BOOK" of S.W. Carey, of New York, showing his ownership in 54 Sailing Vessels and 21 Floating Grain Elevators, 1855-1890

      4to. 263 pp. Half calf over marbled boards, with the spine partially defective. A small label with the manuscript notation “Vessel Book” appears on the front cover. Manuscript entries in sepia and red ink in a fine, bold hand - perhaps Carey’s. Entries are in balance sheet form with debit and. credit entries - usually on facing pages. Carey owned interests in smaller sailing vessels, including clippers (the Western Empire and John Fyfe), a whaler (the Virgin of New Bedford), and a number of large packets (the Isaac Webb, the Yorktown, the Great Western, etc,). Nineteen of Carey’s ships were lost during his ownership and their fates are carefully recorded. The ship Byzantium, for example, was “burned at sea by Pirate Bark Tacony. Capt. Reid June 21st/63.” Or, “Schooner Cordelia, driven ashore and became a total wreck at Vera Cruz.” Or the Octavius, which sailed from New York and was never heard from again. The bark Virginia was “taken by the Rebel Pirate Alabama” etc. From 1864 through 1890 Carey began investing in the floating grain elevators in New York harbor - at greater profit with far less risk. A most unusual manuscript item.

        2 eigenh. Briefe mit U.

      Düsseldorf, 1864 und 1865.. Zusammen (1+1 =) 2 SS. auf 3 Bll. Gr.-4to. Ein Brief mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. Jeweils an den Vorstand des Kunstvereins in Kassel und anläßlich der Übersendung einer (hier nicht beiliegenden) Quittung (20. I. 1864) bzw. mit der Aufforderung, ihm einen Ausstellungskatalog zukommen zu lassen: "[...] Der westphälische Kunstverein in Münster beabsichtigt nämlich von Anfang October bis Anfang November eine Ausstellung zu veranstalten. - Aus dem Catalog Ihrer Ausstellung wünsche ich mir nun ein Verzeichniß der dort befindlichen Düsseldorfer Bilder zu machen, um darnach zu bestimmen, welche Bilder von dort später nach Münster gehen können [...]" (13. IX. 1865). - Der jüngere Bruder des Historienmalers Alfred Rethel studierte bei Karl Ferdinand Sohn und Wilhelm von Schadow an der Kunstakademie Düsseldorf und schuf vorwiegend Bilder mit biblischen Motiven sowie Altarbilder. Wohl unter dem Eindruck der schweren, schließlich letal endenden Erkrankung seines Bruder und der Unterstützung für dessen junge Witwe und ihre erst sechsjährige Tochter wandte sich Rethel von biblischen Motiven ab und schuf Genrebilder mit Titeln wie "Wiedersehen nach überstandener Krankheit", "Am Herd", "Im Trauerhaus" und "Ernste Kindheit"; daneben war Rethel mit sehr ausdrucksstarken Portraits erfolgreich. - Jeweils auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf des "Vereins Düsseldorfer Künstler zu gegenseitiger Unterstützung und Hülfe" und mit starken Randschäden; tls. gering fleckig.

        ALBUM PALLIERE ESCENAS AMERICANAS REDUCCION DE CUADROS, AQUARELLES, Y BOSQUEJOS

      Buenos Aires: En venta en la casa de los S[e?es Fusoni H[erna]nos, [1864].. Buenos Aires: En venta en la casa de los S[eño]res Fusoni H[erna]nos, [1864].. Thirty-six (of fifty-two) lithographed plates (nearly all tinted). Without titlepage. Oblong folio. Contemporary black morocco spine and cloth boards, title stamped in gilt on front cover, spine gilt. Head and foot of spine heavily worn and tearing, hinges and corners lightly worn. Contemporary armorial bookplate on front pastedown. Tissue guards with some foxing, but plates generally quite clean. Good plus. A very rare album of South American scenes, originally drawn by León Pallière and finely printed as lithographic plates in Buenos Aires by J. Pelvilain. The plates include views and portraits of local inhabitants in Argentina (30), Brazil (2), Uruguay (2), and Chile (2). Pallière, born in Rio de Janeiro in 1823 to French parents, travelled to France as a young child and eventually studied art there under F.E. Picot. He continued his artistic training both in South America between 1848 and 1850 and in Europe between 1850 and 1855. He then returned to South America, travelling for the next decade in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, and Bolivia, and producing the images found in this volume. The views consist primarily of rural scenes, and many of these images portray local inhabitants in a variety of activities. These illustrations and the other images of the native and mestizo population represent a variety of local types and occupations including Indians; rural and urban mestizo laborers; middle and upper class women in a theatre gallery and in church; working men in pulperias; black men and women at a market in Bahia; gauchos; soldiers (apparently rural conscripts); and even a surveyor in the countryside. A number of the lithographs focus on life in the country - on the plains, in camp, and at home. One such image, of a couple standing outside a straw house, includes a ten-line romantic poem by R. Gutierrez. Though a full album is comprised of fifty- two plates and a titlepage, this album does not appear to be missing anything and was likely bound this way originally. A marvellous album, extremely rare, no copies on OCLC. PALAU 211114. BORBA DE MORAES, p.648.

        Autograph Letter Signed, in German, 8vo, 3 pp., n.p., September 15, 1902

      Schnitzler writes to Oscar Bie, (1864-1938) German art historian and magazine editor. "I am deeply into my new piece. But I still hope to be able to take you up on your kind offer for next year, most likely with a novelette. But I am not promising anything. Please don't be annoyed, but I cannot make promises because commitments pressure me." Nicely signed, "I greet you warmly, Arthur Schnitzler". In a postscript he adds, "...I should not publish any of it, and afterwards in the newspaper it may not be worth it anymore?"

      Dublin [Virginia] 1864 - Broadside. General Orders. Dublin [Virginia], September 5, 1864. 12 x 10 1/2 in. Foraging during wartime often pits an army against its supporters in the civilian population. In his final month of departmental command before returning to the Army of Northern Virginia, Confederate Brigadier General John Nichols warning his soldiers not to molest citizens or their property. Excerpt"Frequent complaints having reached these Head Quarters of depredations having been committed upon the property of citizens of South Western Va. and East Tennessee, and of the willful and unnecessary waste of the substance of the country by the straggling squads of men connected with the various command in this Department, the immediate attention of all Commanding Officers is directed thereto; and they are hereby ordered to bring all offenders in this respect to speedy and certain punishment. Officers are responsible for the conduct of their men and they will be held to such responsibility. All citizens, whose property is depredated upon, or whose rights are violated in any way by either the officers or men in this Department, are requested to make complaint thereof to the Head Quarters, stating the names of the offenders, and the commands to which they belong, in order that the cases may be promptly investigated and punishment speedily inflicted and restitution made."John Echols (1823-1896) after mustering volunteer forces in the early years of the war, Echols commanded the 27th Virginia Infantry, which fought under Stonewall Jackson at the First Battle of Bull Run. He was wounded during the Valley Campaign and promoted to brigadier general. He then commanded a brigade in Western Virginia, eventually serving as the Department's commander. He served on a three-man board investigating the fall of Vicksburg. After serving Robert E. Lee in the Army of Northern Virginia, Echols took over command of the Department of South Western Virginia and Eastern Tennessee in 1864. Echols returned to his previous profession of law and served on the committee that worked to get Virginia readmitted to the Union.ConditionScattered foxing; folds separating in places, minor edge paper loss.

Illustrated with 52 lithographed plates after Juan León Palliere, mainly representing rural and urban scenarios -including images of the "Gauchos", regarded as iconographicalcornerstones-, amongst them the Desembarque con Rio Bajo, La Pupería, Paseo de Domingo, El Saladero, La Esquila, Gauchos carneando, Valparaiso, Parada para hacer noche, Entrada de la Bahia de Rio de Janeiro.Palliere (1823 - 1887) was born in Río de Janeiro to French parents, studied under Picot and Lenepveu until he was 25 years old, when he went back to Brazil to continue his studies at the Academia de Belas Artes. After finishing his studies, Palliere began his travels ?which lasted for a decade- where the most of his artistic creation was conceived. The images reproduced in the album are a product of those travels. He is regarded as one of the foremost painters of 19th century Argentina. A special copy, retaining its original editor´s binding and bound with two of the original folder titles where the plates were given to the subscribers. Provenance: ownership inscription of Angel Gallardo to title page.Palau, 211114. Borba de Moraes II, 648.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Starnberg, 25. VI. 1864.. 5 SS. auf 3 Bll. Gr.-8vo. Mit eh. adr. Kuvert mit gepr. Absenderemblem und Initialen verso.. Bedeutender und umfangreicher Brief an Josephine Maier, die Mutter seiner engen Freundin Mathilde Maier; die vielzitierte Aufforderung Wagners an Mathilde mit ihm zusammenzuleben, pro forma an die Mutter gerichtet: "Liebe theure Freundin! Nur Jemand, dem ich bereits soviel Liebe und wahre Hingebung zu danken habe, als Ihnen, kann ich wagen, eine Frage und Bitte an das Herz zu legen, wie ich es heute Ihnen thun muss. - Ich muss mich jetzt entscheiden, wie ich es anfangen soll, fernerhin mein Haus mir soweit erträglich zu machen, dass die erlangte schöne Sicherung meiner äusseren Lage mir auch zu innerem Gedeihen gerathe. Sie wissen, ich lebe von meiner Frau getrennt: das Bedürfniss, einem weiblichen Wesen meinen Hausstand zu übergeben, ist neuerdings wieder so stark in mir geworden, dass ich ernstlich wieder in Ueberlegung zog, ob es nicht besser sei, lieber, als allein zu stehen, meine Frau wieder zu mir zu berufen. Nur die aus langer Erfahrung gewonnene, und durch die Wahrnehmung aller meiner Freunde und Verwandte verstärkte Ueberzeugung, dass aus einer Wiedervereinigung für Jeden von uns ein weit unerträglicherer Zustand entstehen würde, als die Trennung ist, hat mich gänzlich wieder davon abbringen müssen [...]". - Obwohl an ihre Mutter adressiert, sandte Wagner diesen mehr als bemerkenswerten Brief direkt an Mathilde Maier, die das Schreiben nach Kenntnisnahme des Inhalts jedoch nicht an ihre Mutter weitergab und Wagners Angebot in der Folge ablehnte, ihm aber zeitlebens freundschaftlich verbunden blieb. - Der Brief zuletzt vollständig gedruckt bei M. Dürrer (Hg.), Richard Wagner. Sämtliche Briefe, Bd. 16. Briefe des Jahres 1864, Wiesbaden/Leipzig/Paris 2006, Nr. 204, S. 245ff., Kommentar S. 599 mit Hinweisen zu den früheren Ausgaben.

      Paris, imprimerie de E. Martinet, 1864. - in-8. 2ff. 51pp. Cartonnage moderne à la Bradel. Edition Originale de cette relation des pérégrinations de l'auteur dans la région de Catamarca en Argentine. L'entrepreneur marseillais Benjamin Poucel (1807-1872) avait fondé en Argentine une bergerie pour l'élevage des moutons Merinos. Cette société fut dévastée au moment de la médiation anglo-française, à la suite de quoi l'auteur avait été pris en otage à Durazno en Uruguay.

        Ancient Syriac documents relative to the earliest establishment of Christianity in Edessa and the neighbouring countries from the year after our Lord's ascension to the beginning of the fourth century.

      London, Williams and Norgate, 1864.. Folio (232 x 295 mm). (2), XIV, 196, 112 pp. Contemp. blindstamped cloth with giltstamped title to spine.. First edition. - In 1837, Cureton (1808-64), assistant keeper of manuscripts in the British Museum and the only oriental scholar in the department, was commissioned to prepare a catalogue of the Arabic manuscripts, the first part of which appeared in 1846. "But a new study had already engaged Cureton's attention. During his official occupation at the British Museum immense additions had been made to the collection of Syriac manuscripts. When he entered the department these numbered about eighty; but the accession of numerous manuscripts of the highest importance from the Nitrian monasteries, which were purchased and brought over partly by the mediation of Dr. Tattam in 1841 and 1843, raised the total to nearly six hundred. Cureton, who knew nothing of Syriac when he came to the department, set himself zealously to work to conquer the not very serious difficulties of the language, and to set in order and classify the new acquisitions from the Nitrian valley. His labours while drawing up an outline catalogue were amply rewarded by the discovery of many manuscripts of the highest interest" (DNB). The present work was published, after his death following a railway accident, by William Wright (1830-89). - Occasional slight foxing; on the whole an excellent, unusually wide-margined copy. From the library of the Ducs de Luynes at the Chateau de Dampierre: their bookplate reproducing the arms of Charles Marie d'Albert de Luynes (1783-1839), 7th Duc de Luynes, on pastedown. - DNB XII, 326.
