        Novels of William Harrison Ainsworth

      London - George Routledge & Sons, Ltd. 1865 - A handsomely bound twelve volume set of the novels of William Harrison Ainsworth. William Harrison Ainsworth (1805-1882) was an English historical novelist. While training in London as aÂlawyer, he met the publisher John Ebers, who introducedÂAinsworth to literary and dramatic circles. Ainsworth then briefly tried his luck at theÂpublishing business but soon gave it up to devote himself to journalism and literature. ÂHis first success as a writer came with 'Rookwood' in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. In 1839 he published another novel featuring a highwayman, 'Jack Sheppard'. From 1840-1842 he edited Bentley's Miscellany and from 1842-1853 Ainsworth Magazines, and lastly The New Monthly Magazine. His 'Lancashire novels' cover altogether 400 years and include 'The Lancashire Witches', 'Mervyn Clitheroe' and The Leaguer of Lathom'. 'Jack Sheppard', 'Guy Fawkes' and 'Windsor Castle' are considered as his most successful novels. Ainsworth was very popular in his lifetime and his novels sold in large numbers, but his reputation has unfortunately not outlasted his popularity. This set includes the following works:'Jack Sheppard', 'Boscobel', 'The Spendthrift', 'The Flitch of Bacon', 'Guy Fawkes', 'Ovingdean Grange', 'Crichton', 'Windsor Castle', 'Mervyn Clitheroe', 'The Tower of London', 'The Star Chamber', and 'Rookwood'. Missing from this set are the novels 'The Lancashire Witches', 'The Miser's Daughter', 'Auriol', 'Old St. Pauls'', 'The Leaguer of Lathom' and 'Preston Fight'.

        Pinus sabiniana. Douglas. (Gray, Foothill or Digger Pine)

      Edinburgh & London, 1865. Hand-coloured lithograph. Sheet size: 21 1/2 x 15 3/4 inches. A very fine plate from Ravenscroft's 'The Pinetum Britannicum. A Descriptive Account of Hardy Coniferous Trees' Ravenscroft's work is the third (in order of publication) of the three great coniferous iconographies of the nineteenth century, following Bedford and Lambert. The very fine plates fall into two categories: botanical studies of details of the needles and fruit of the individual trees, and landscape studies of examples of individual trees in their natural habitat. This plate is an outstanding example of the former group, here drawn and lithographed by W. Richardson. Cf. Nissen BBI 1588; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.127; cf. Stafleu & Cowan 8685.

        PHOTOGRAPH OF TWO CHINESE WOMEN AND TWO WESTERNERS POSING AT A. SANG'S STUDIO IN

      Hong Kong n.d. ca 1865, A. Sang. Stiff card, 10.8 x 16.5 cm.. English & Chinese text on the back, photograpic image is in. excellent condition, strong image, clean, solid, NO defects,. exceptionally RARE subject !. This is a rare and early image of two western men and what appears to be their wives, mistresses or closely related Chinese women. * Each woman puts her left hand on her man's shoulder. The men are seated, legs crossed, with their hands on each thigh in a relaxed pose. They wear dress trousers and suit jackets. The women are standing; one wears an early silk Cheongsam [or Qipao] a native Chinese woman's dress' and flat shoes. Each stares ahead and freezes for the camera. Both women wear small bracelets on their right hand and no rings, but one wears earrings. The men are also without rings. One an wears a neck tie and holds a small cigarillo. The woman on the left is quite "stiff" in the pose, her face is set and firm, her hands and feet are frozen and immobile, while the other's hands are more relaxed as is her expression. The man on the left also looks "stiff" and matches his woman's demeanor. The man on the right is more relaxed and looks directly at the camera. The couple on the left gaze to their left and avoid direct eye-contact with the camera...camera shy ? * The background is painted and shows a small Chinese pagoda and another small building with Chinese writing on it. * THE IMAGE: The actual image size is 10.2 x 14.8 cm., done in sepia tone, mounted on a small stiff board with gilt edges. * THE CHINESE PHOTOGRAPHER: Front reads: "A. Sang 171 Queen's Road, Hongkong." The back or verso has a lovely steam paddle wheeler ship, the text reads: "A. Sang, PHOTOGRAPHER AND PARTRAIT [sic] PAINTER, 171, Queen's Road Central. Opp. Fire Engine House. Hongkong, China." With Chinese character address below the English Address. * There is an elaborate border on the back side, with four printer's devices, one in each corner. * The card is remarkably clean, NOT bumped or otherwise scratched or damaged. There is a slight hint of a few tiny brown spots on the back side. The front is very clean lacking any defects worth mention and over all is truly a nice solid copy in "collector's" condition. *** RARITY: Photographs of Hong Kong of this period are rare regardless of subject. In this case, a photograph of western men together with intimately related Chinese women are indeed R A R E ! An exquisite example ! *** THE OCCASION: Obviously for these four people to go to a photographer's studio, pose for the camera meant it was an important occasion. The women wear very clean, nice gowns their hair is very neat, bangs trimmed. * Color scans can be sent by email. Images displayed may not always be the exact photo of the copy in stock for sale at any given time.

        Slaughter Pen, Foot of Round Top, Gettysburg (plate 44 from Gardner’s Photographic Sketch Book of the War)

      Washington: Gardner 1865 - Albumen print (approx. 7 x 9 in.), original mount with lithographed frame and caption. Minor occasional soiling and fading. Excellent condition, with good strong tones. This famous site on the Gettysburg battlefield is in front of Little Round Top. The most celebrated collection of Civil War photographs, Gardner’s Photographic Sketch Book of the War contains “many of the most graphic and memorable Civil War images that have come down to us” (ICP). The photographs covered the entire conflict from Manassas in 1862 to the dedication of the monument at Bull Run in June 1865. Gardner presents the photographs, each accompanied by his descriptive text, as “mementoes of the fearful struggle,” recording war as it had never been recorded before. Alexander Gardner joined Mathew Brady’s studio in the 1850s and introduced the new wet-plate collodion process there. This process was employed in the photographs of the Sketch Book. When Brady’s sight deteriorated in the 1850s, Gardner became the studio’s chief photographer. Working with the Army of the Potomac as a civilian photographer, Gardner happened to be present during the Battle of Antietam. Carrying his heavy equipment over the battlefield in the immediate aftermath of this bloodiest of battles, he captured a series of beautiful and shocking images. Within a month of publication they were exhibited at Brady’s New York gallery, where crowds waited in line for hours to view them. When Brady accepted credit for the images, as he was wont to do, the outraged Gardner resigned and set up his own studio, bringing the leading Brady photographers with him. These men, including George Barnard, David Knox, Timothy O’Sullivan, and William Pywell, contributed to the immense Photographic Sketch Book project, and they are scrupulously credited in its captions.

        [ARCHIVE OF CORRESPONDENCE ADDRESSED TO HANSFORD D. NORELL, CONFEDERATE COURIER, 1861 - 1865]

      [Various places], 1865. Some letters trimmed or with address labels affixed. Several documents folded, with a few separations along the folds, otherwise very minor wear. Near fine. This considerable archive charts the rise of Hansford D. Norell from young Augusta, Ga. bookseller to high-level courier for the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. The collection begins with several letters of introduction for Norell as he moved to Richmond to seek employment with the new Confederate government. On July 24, 1861, he received a letter from Secretary of Treasury Christopher Menninger appointing him a clerk in the Treasury office on a temporary basis, and on September 7 of the same year another letter from Menninger hiring him full-time. In June of 1862, Norell was promoted to courier, and began to transport large amounts of currency between Richmond and other southern cities. Receipts in the archive show that he delivered $3 million to Jackson, Ms. and $2 million to Charleston, S.C. in September 1862, and another $2 million to Savannah two months later. The second part of the archive documents Norell's mission to Europe to obtain new engraving plates to improve the printing of Confederate currency, and his stay there until the conclusion of the war. Letters from Secretary of the Navy Stephen Mallory show that Norell was entrusted with two thousand Confederate cotton bonds to deliver to his contact in Paris. Newspaper clippings in the collection report that Norell's ship narrowly escaped the Union blackade, but his trip was nevertheless a success, with a receipt confirming delivery of the bonds in Paris to C.J. McRae. After concluding his business in Paris, Norell moved on to Liverpool, where further letters show that in 1864 he was engaged in negotiating the construction and purchase of military vessels for the Confederate Navy. When the war finally ended, the collection records his return to the United States on a British passport using the name William Martin, and the reassumption of his own name back in Richmond, where he signed his oath of loyalty to the United States on June 28, 1865. Overall, the collection contains ten letters to Norell from Treasury Secretary Menninger, ten letters from Navy Secretary Mallory, fourteen letters from other parties, and fifteen receipts and similar documents, as well as three newspaper clippings related to his activities and two small photograph portraits of Norell. A cohesive and compelling archive that relates the financial issues and supply problems of the Confederacy at a personal level. Housed in mylar sleeves, in a red three ring binder. A complete inventory is available.

        A SKETCH OF ARMY LIFE OR ARMY DAYS & NIGHTS ON THE BATTLEFIELD. VOL. 2

      [N.p., 1865. Quarto. Original three-quarter sheep and brown cloth. Extremities very worn, boards nearly detached. Internally bright and clean. Good. The unpublished memoir of Union soldier Harold J. Eaton, through the Army of the Potomac campaigns in the spring of 1864. This manuscript volume picks up on May 18, 1864 and appears to be based on his war journals with many detailed passages on specific battles. The first volume of his memoirs has been lost. The memoir begins at the Battle of Spotsylvania in the brutal Wilderness Campaign in the spring of 1864, as Grant smashed his way toward Richmond by brute force. Eaton was present at some of the most horrific battles of the Civil War. His experience at the bloody Battle of Cold Harbor is recounted over five pages. "All through the woods the dead were buried, or only half buried, with their feet and hands sticking out of the ground. In many places these dead were not buried but were laying just as they fell, many of them riddled with shot and daylight was plainly shining through them." Though the battle was deemed a decisive victory for the Confederates Eaton claims a fair amount of casualties for the enemy as well, and recounts disparagingly their treatment of their dead. He concludes the narrative of the scene by offering an honest portrait of the face of war. "People at home who would like to see a battlefield had ought to have seen this one...you would have seen what desolation war makes, and what havoc the shot and shells makes among men and horses, and among the trees. I hope all who may read this will never see anything of this kind..." Eaton continues to narrate, with considerable verve and style, the campaign through early July, 1864, by which time the offensive had ground to a halt in front of the fortifications of Richmond. He was wounded in the arm at the battle of Petersburg on June 16, and withdrew to a forward hospital and then to Washington. He spent the remainder of the war in hospitals, and was mustered out on May 25, 1865. The later part of the text is devoted to poetry written by Eaton and fellow soldiers. These patriotic, and at times heartbreaking works, touch on topics such as the death of President Lincoln, the loss of limbs during battle, and the fear of being forgotten in death. A unique and extremely personal account of the Civil War and a month of the most terrible fighting of the entire war, filled with anecdotes of fear and bravery alike.

        Battery D, Fifth U.S. Artillery, in action (plate 31 from Gardner’s Photographic Sketch Book of the War)

      Washington: Gardner 1865 - Albumen print (approx. 7 x 9 in.), original mount with lithographed frame and caption. Minor occasional soiling and fading. Excellent condition, with good strong tones. Made in June 1863, “this picture was made as the guns were engaging the enemy, the gunners who had just received the order, ‘cannoniers to your posts,’ calling to the photographer to hurry his wagon out of the way, unless he was anxious to figure in the list of casualties” (Gardner). The most celebrated collection of Civil War photographs, Gardner’s Photographic Sketch Book of the War contains “many of the most graphic and memorable Civil War images that have come down to us” (ICP). The photographs covered the entire conflict from Manassas in 1862 to the dedication of the monument at Bull Run in June 1865. Gardner presents the photographs, each accompanied by his descriptive text, as “mementoes of the fearful struggle,” recording war as it had never been recorded before. Alexander Gardner joined Mathew Brady’s studio in the 1850s and introduced the new wet-plate collodion process there. This process was employed in the photographs of the Sketch Book. When Brady’s sight deteriorated in the 1850s, Gardner became the studio’s chief photographer.

Von 1842 bis 1846 war er Professor der Theologie in Gran, beschäftigte sich lebhaft mit Naturwissenschaft, besonders mit Botanik, wurde 1851 Koadjutor des Bischofs in Karlsburg und 1852 dort Bischof, zuvor wurde er zum Titularbischof von Hebron ernannt. 1863 entsagte er seinem Bistum und lebte in Rom, bis er 1867 als Erzbischof von Kalocsa nach Ungarn zurückkehrte. Im Konsistorium am 12. Mai 1879 wurde er von Papst Leo XIII. zum Kardinal erhoben. Ihm wurde die Titelkirche Santa Maria degli Angeli zugewiesen. Er errichtete in Kalocsa ein reichdotiertes Gymnasium der Jesuiten und versah es 1877 mit einer Sternwarte. Sein Herbarium und seine botanische Bibliothek gehörten um 1890 zu den vollständigsten in Europa, auch lieferte er eine wertvolle Arbeit über die Pflanzen der Bibel. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina ernannte ihn 1867 zu ihrem Mitglied“ (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch, Deutsch u. Lateinisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius\' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Haynald, Mislin, Botanik, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE RECENTLY DISCOVERED PETROLEUM REGION IN CALIFORNIA, WITH A REPORT ON THE SAME

      New York: Francis & Loutrel, 1865. Original printed wrappers. 1 1/2-inch semi-circular closed tear on front wrapper, with no paper loss. Wrappers a bit soiled, worn along spine. Small light stain in upper margin of first few leaves. Some light edge wear to the map. Overall very good. This is Silliman's second report on the oil region in Santa Barbara County, California, following a similarly titled study issued the year before (which did not have the folding map contained in the present issue). Silliman was a chemistry professor at Yale, and his reports are the most important early studies of petroleum in the United States (chiefly in Pennsylvania and California). He outlined the principal methods for preparing and purifying petroleum, and discovered its chief uses. Silliman's surveys commanded high fees from the petroleum companies, raising ethical questions in the scientific community. This report describes the oil wealth in lands owned by the California Petroleum Company. The map shows the location of the company's lands around Ojai, in Santa Barbara County, and the cross- section shows the "ideal section from Buenaventura to Mupu Arroyo." The company was capitalized at $10,000,000 and issued 100,000 shares at $100 each, with one-tenth of the capital stock reserved for working capital. Silliman concludes "that the promise of a remarkable development at Buenaventura is far better than it was in the Pennsylvania or Ohio regions - since so famous." The Eberstadts called this report "the beginning of the petroleum industry in the West." SABIN 81051. COWAN, p.588 (note). STREETER SALE 2903. GIDDENS, p.167. ROCQ 15489. EBERSTADT 133:801.

        Leaves from the Note-Book of a New York Detective. The Private Record of J. B.

      NY: Dick & Fitzgerald (1865). 1st ed. - 8vo. 186 pp. + [2] pp. ads. Original printed orange wrappers, with ads front verso and rear recto and verso. Seminal in the development of modern American detective fiction, John Brampton Williams' Leaves from the Note Book of a New York Detective is considered to be the first instance of American detective fiction. This collection of 29 short stories opens with the title piece which recounts the meeting between a medical doctor, John Babbington Williams (the actual author of the stories), and detective James Brampton. They become acquaintances, and after Brampton has retired after twenty years of service, he sends his case notebooks to Dr. Williams to be edited and published. In each of the stories private investigator Brampton uses his superior powers of deduction and penetrating observation to solve the crimes and anticipates by twenty years 19th century's most famous sleuth, Sherlock Holmes. The stories include: "The Silver Pin," "The Mysterious Advertisement," "The Struggle for Life," "A Satanic Compact," "A Terrible Night in Baltimore," et al. Bottom inch of spine chipped away (not affecting title or author), wear along rear spinal fold, shallow edge chips and dust soil. The cover, however, is intact and still attached, remarkable for such a fragile book. The text is complete and bright. Overall very good. Presented in a black cloth slipcase with an inset gilt stamped black leather spinal label. A rare book at the beginning of the American mystery/detective fiction genre.

Mit zahlr. Portrait-Taf. in Stahlst., tls. ganzs. Holzst., sowie Plänen u. Karten. 1 Bl., 619; 749 S. Lwdbde. (Fleckig u. berieb.) und Lederschild. für Titel und Band (stark berieben mit Fehlstellen). Die Titelseiten mit Abklatsch durch die Titelstahlst. (s.Foto). Das Original "Theœ American conflict : a history of the Great Rebellion in the United States of America, 1860 - '65 ; its causes, incidents, and results intended to exhibit especially its moral and political phases, with the drift and progress of American opinion respecting human slavery from 1776 to the close of the war for the union." erschien im gleichen Jahr 1865. Der Zeitungsverleger und Politiker H. Greeley (1811-1872), Gründer der New York Tribune, trat schon vor und während des Bürgerkrieges für die Abschaffung der Sklaverei im Süden der Vereinigten Staaten ein. Er war ein kritischer Unterstützer der Politik Abraham Lincolns, griff den Präsidenten aber mehrfach publizistisch wegen des in seinen Augen zu zögerlichen Vorgehens in der Sklavenfrage an. "Mein oberstes Ziel in diesem Krieg ist es, die Union zu retten; es ist nicht, die Sklaverei zu retten oder zu zerstören. Könnte ich die Union retten, ohne auch nur einen Sklaven zu befreien, so würde ich es tun; könnte ich sie retten, indem ich alle Sklaven befreite, so würde ich es tun; und könnte ich die Union retten, indem ich einige Sklaven befreite und andere nicht, so würde ich auch das tun. Alles, was ich in Bezug auf die Sklaverei und die Schwarzen tue, geschieht, weil ich glaube, dass es hilft, die Union zu retten" (Aus dem berühmten offenen Antwort-Brief Lincolns an Greeley vom 22. August 1862). Sehr selten vollständige erste deutsche Ausgabe. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
