        THE FIRST OF MAY 1865 OR GENL. MOVING DAY IN RICHMOND VA

      New York: H. & W. Voight, 1865. Handcolored lithograph, 9 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches. Lightly toned, with minor wear. Very good. A satirical political print showing "moving day" at Confederate headquarters in Richmond. The lithograph depicts Gen. Robert E. Lee loading old swords in a dog cart with two scrawny dogs attached, while Treasury Secretary George Trenholm hauls a string of boxes carrying worthless bonds over his shoulder, each bearing the name of a Confederate state. A box on the sidewalk marked "C.S.A. Treasury (on which a dog is unabashedly urinating) is also labeled as "Waste Paper," and the building in the background sports signs that read "Sheriff Sale" and "To let. Apply Lincoln & Co." Several individuals - including two African Americans, one thumbing his nose - look on. The title date of May 1 would lead one to think that this lithograph was issued on that date, but in fact it was probably issued earlier in the spring, before the collapse of the Confederacy, and is speculating on its demise with May 1 as a projected to date. In fact, Richmond was occupied by Union troops on April 3. Likewise, the reference to "Lincoln & Co." is unlikely after his death on April 15. Finally, Treasury Secretary Trenholm had resigned on April 27, although this detail might have escaped a cartoonist. A very rare image. We locate copies at the American Antiquarian Society, Library of Congress, Yale, Virginia Historical Society, and Brown University.

        Lettre autographe signée

      - KIPLING Rudyard (1865-1936), écrivain britannique. L.A.S. adressée au Dr Currey. « The Woolsack, Rosebank, Capetown », 15 janvier 1904. 1 p. in-12 en anglais. Avec enveloppe. Il remercie son correspondant pour son mot. S'il n'est pas certain d'être à Woolsack pendant l'été, il precise néanmoins : « I should greatly like to see your house and know how you're getting on. » [J'aimerais grandement voir votre maison et savoir comment vous allez.] Entre 1898 et 1908, Kipling occupa régulièrement The Woolsack , chalet d'été de son ami Cecil John Rhodes (1853-1902) qui avait fait rebâtir l'endroit par l'architecte Herbert Baker, pour le laisser à la disposition d'artistes et d'écrivains. Kipling en devint, selon la volonté testamentaire de Rhodes, locataire à vie. La famille Currey, bénéficiant elle aussi de la générosité de Rhodes, habita une autre propriété de l'homme d'affaires, également construite par Baker, à Welgelgen.

        relative ad una rilevante tipografia ottocentesca. Probabilmente Sonzogno. Milano, 1865 ca.

      Stampe al collodio, 21x14 cm applicate entro passepartout originali in cartoncino grigio di 35x26 cm, con finestra con angoli arrotondati ed elaborata bordura in rilievo. In ottimo stato di conservazione. - Assieme di 9 fotografie, non firmate e non datate ma attribuibili a Francesco Heyland ed al figlio, attivi a Milano (con studio in Piazza Duomo) a partire dalla metà dell'800. Francesco Heyland insieme al fotografo francese Hippolyte Deroche, documentò le fasi della costruzione della Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Insieme di notevole interesse dal punto di vista tecnologico, sociale e fotografico, che descrive minuziosamente i diversi aspetti del lavoro all'interno di una tipografia ottocentesca di grandi dimensioni. Importante è la documentazione dei macchinari, così come del coinvolgimento anche degli operai negli scatti realizzati. Comprende: 5 foto di lavoratori in posa nel cortile dello stabilimento: - Gli operai disposti su 4 file con un piccolo torchio tipografico in primo piano. Agli estremi del torchio i due operai più giovani, nella parte destra dell'immagine il caporeparto ed i proprietari. - Gli operai tengono fieramente in mano i ferri del mestiere (pinze per la fusione dei caratteri, alcune più grandi per maneggiare i crogiuoli per il piombo fuso) a destra del gruppo le maestranze. - Foto di gruppo degli operai più anziani. - Ritratto delle alte cariche dell'azienda -I dirigenti dell'azienda sono immortalati alcuni seduti, altri in piedi, dietro al tavolo presidenziale. 4 foto di interni della tipografia: - Veduta generale della sala di composizione, con i cassetti per i piombi ed i torchi di prova. - Altra sala con gli operai al lavoro nella sala macchine, alcuni addetti ai torchi ed altri intenti nella piegatura manuale dei quaderni: interessanti macchinari per la cucitura dei fascicoli sopra le varie postazioni lavorative: pulegge azionate da distributori di potenza proveniente dalla macchina a vapore. - Macchina a vapore con operai al lavoro - Macchina a vapore con distributore di potenza ad albero tramite pulegge - applicata a macchine da stampa, torchi e cucitrici - vicino alla macchina alcuni operai. Queste tavole sono di notevole interesse dal punto di vista tecnologico e fotografico, in quanto i lunghi tempi di esposizione rendono visibile il vapore all'interno delle sale. In considerazione delle dimensioni della tipografia, dell'epoca e dell'attribuzione del fotografo, è possibile che lo stabilimento raffigurato sia quello di Sonzogno, una delle più antiche case editrici italiane. Francesco Sonzogno sin dal 1807 stampa il Giornale bibliografico universale. Il testimone passa poi a Giambattista "tipografo-librajo in Milano" che nel 1818 inaugura la Collana degli storici greci volgarizzati; ma è a partire dal 1861 con Edoardo, nipote di Giambattista, che l'impresa ha un nuovo impulso, trasformandosi in un'impresa a carattere industriale. Nel 1866 Edoardo acquista la Gazzetta di Milano fondendola con Il Secolo, e la casa editrice inizia a pubblicare una notevole gamma di periodici "dal più colto al più popolare" ed edizioni librarie di grandissimo successo come la Biblioteca classica economica e la Biblioteca del popolo. Nel 1874 nasce la Casa Musicale Sonzogno e si specializza nel melodramma italiano La macchina a vapore per la stampa venne introdotta in Italia da Pomba: "La "Stamperia Sociale degli Artisti Tipografi", insediata da Giuseppe Pomba (1795-1876) a Torino, nei sotterranei di Casa Pomba, fu tra le prime nel 1847, a impiegare una macchina a vapore (di 4 HP, cavalli-vapore) per azionare una macchina da stampa importata dall'Inghilterra. Curioso rilevare come l'introduzione delle macchine a vapore abbia rivoluzionato anche la produzione tipografica, rendendola "industriale" e causando problemi di convivenza a causa dei rumori e tremori generati dai macchinari. Cfr. A. GUSMANO, Gli inchiostri nella storia della scrittura e della stampa, 2011, a proposito della torinese tipografia Pomba: "L'innovazione suscitò vibrate proteste da parte degli inquilini, che lamentavano: ?Quella casa è divenuta una fornace, i camini sputano fumo in continuo, le mura s'infocano, i pavimenti tremano', perciò il Vicariato d [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE SOUTHERN PRISONS OF THE U.S. OFFICERS

      Baltimore: Lith. & Print by E. Sachse & Co., 1865. Lithograph, 24 x 35 3/4 inches. Scattered light foxing and a few faint stray ink marks. Near Fine. A rare lithograph showing views of several Confederate prison camps in the South, used to hold Union officers during the Civil War. The lithograph contains twelve images of at least six different Confederate camps in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. While Andersonville Prison in Georgia is well known as the largest and most brutal of the Confederate prison camps, this important lithograph shows the conditions and structures at several lesser known southern prisons, thereby providing valuable information. One of the two central images is a view of the crowded "Asylum Camp" in Columbia, South Carolina. The image shows a pair of two-story buildings in the background, with dozens of tents crowded into an open space in the foreground. The entire camp is surrounded by a fence. Many of the tents have their own small fireplace, and men are shown chopping wood, hanging clothing, preparing food, carrying water, and milling about the yard. There are two other images of Camp Asylum: one showing men taking wood from a large pile, the other a view of the sutler's tent at the camp, showing a large number of men proceeding into a tent to receive supplies. The other central image is of Camp Sorghum in Columbia, South Carolina. Small cabins and tents are shown in a large cleared field patrolled by armed guards. Another small view shows the hospital at the camp, with many wounded men depicted. Views of other prisons show the jail in Columbia, South Carolina; the jail and workhouse in Charleston, South Carolina (mostly tents); Camp Oglethorpe in Macon, Georgia, showing several small cabins; and rustic Camp Exchange in Charlotte, North Carolina, showing a number of armed guards patrolling a small group of tents and a crudely built two-story building. There are also views of a performance by "Chandler's String Band," mail delivery (showing scores of men crowded around a building), and an image of long lines of men passing clothing that have apparently just been delivered by a small train. Lithographer and printer Edward Sachse was located in Baltimore, and was therefore well positioned to produce views and prints for southern and northern markets before and during the Civil War. In 1862 he published a portrait of Union general Ambrose Burnside, and after the war Sachse published prints of the grave of Stonewall Jackson, and of Robert E. Lee in his study (the latter drawn by Adalbert Volck). Sachse also published views of the Virginia Military Institute, Fort McHenry, and a print of the famous clash between the Monitor and the Merrimac. This print is not included in Neely & Holzer's THE UNION IMAGE nor in their THE CONFEDERATE IMAGE, and it is not mentioned by Peters. OCLC locates only two copies this lithograph, at the Library of Michigan and at the Boston Athenaeum. Rare. OCLC 136954063, 191908999. PETERS, AMERICA ON STONE, pp.348-49 (ref).

        'Manuscript des Schönbrunner Hof-Gärtners Richard van der Schot, ein 1774 begonnenes und bis 1780 ergänztes systematisches Pflanzenverzeichnis nach Linné' & Richardus van der Schot gekregen den 21. November in het jaar 1759.

      3 manuscript volumes listing plants growing in the Schönbrunn gardens. Together about 450 pages. 8vo. 2 vols. 185 x 112mm and a third volume slightly smaller. Contemporary calf (2 vols.) and contemporary vellum. The 3 volumes are from the famous collection of Ernst Moritz Kronfeld (1865-1942), botanist, writer and collector. Kronfeld decribed the 3 volumes as follows "Auch Hofgärtner Richard van der Schott dokumentierte das botanische Wissen seiner Zeit in drei wertvollen Manuskriptbänden... Die Manuskriptbände sind auch heute noch wissenschaftsgeschichtlich relevant - dokumentieren sie doch die verbreitung von und das Wissen über Pflanzen sowie die Bedeutung Schönnbrunns innerhalb der botanischen Gärten der europäischer Herrscherhäuser" (Schriftenreihe der Kommission für Provenienzforschung 5 pp. 31-70).//Richard van der Schot (1733-1790) of Delft (Holland) was appointed head gardener by Emperor Franz I of the Botanical Gardens at Schönbrunn. Van der Schot had taken with him a great number of exotics purchased from different nurseries in Holland. In 1754 he accompanied Nikolaus Joseph Jacquin to the West Indies to collect plants for the Schönbrunn Garden, the so called Holländischen Garten. In August 1755 the first consignment of plants from Martinique arrived at Schönbrunn and in 1756 van der Schot returned from Martinique with a considerable number of trees and shrubs. The 2 volumes bound in contemporary calf have a manuscript card glued in, as already mentioned above, 'Manuscript des Schönbrunner Hof-Gärtners...' followed by a manuscript title 'Index Systematis Vegetabilium transcriptus a Richardo van der Schot, ex editione decima tertia a 1774...'. The third volume 'Richardus van der Schot....' see above, has many plant names in Dutch and starts with 'November Anijers die den 25 zijn aan gekomen van Buelinck..'. As Van der Schot remained head gardener during the years 1759 to 1780 the plants listed in the manuscript volumes must concern plants growing in the Schönbrunn Gardens, the most splendid botanical garden of the period. On numerous occasions slips have been added and glued in to add new plant names.//See also S. Madrinan, Nikolaus Jospeh Jacquin's American Plants.

        St. Goar on the Rhine

      London, 1865. Chromolithograph. Trimmed and mounted on board as issued. In excellent condition, with the exception of a tear in the image. Scratch in upper section of image with small puncture mark. Image size: 16 ¾ x 25 13/16. A picturesque view of St. Goar on the Rhine by the celebrated landscape painter, Thomas Richardson. Thomas M. Richardson , born and died in Newcastle upon Tyne, but spent a considerable amount of time traveling in France, Switzerland, Italy and Germany, and produced lithographs of the watercolours he did there. This excellent study on the Rhine being a perfect example. The printing, a major element in the success of a chromolithograph, was done by M. & N. Hanhart. Richardson was son and pupil of T. M. Richardson the Elder, who taught him to work in oils and watercolours. After his father's death, Richardson the Younger worked exclusively in watercolour. He was a member of the Society of Painters in Watercolour and a member of the Royal Scottish Academy. Chromolithography was achieved by using a series of carefully registered tint stones to create a smooth richly coloured image. This printing process became immensely popular towards the end of the nineteenth century and was widely used in fine art as well as commercial printing. One of the most important chromolithographic firms was M & N Hanhart in London. The firm, founded by Michael Hanhart, began publishing its first prints in 1840 and remained in business until the end of the century. Hanhart's was known for its large separately published chromolithographs, but it printed everything from book illustrations to song sheets. This stunning print after Richardson is a fine example of Hanhart's superior chromolithographs. Its intense colour and meticulous detailing is common of Hanhart's superior printing techniques representing the best example of nineteenth century chromolithography. Benezit, Dictionary of Artists.

        Archive of Business Correspondence Urbana Wine Company Hammondsport, New York 1890s

      No Binding. Very Good. The archive consists of approximately 182 letters, 278 pages, both handwritten and typed, plus 20 ephemeral items, they are all in very good, legible condition, and are all generally on company letterhead, and quite attractive. Altogether a substantial and revealing file of correspondence regarding the marketing of an important New York State wine producer. An interesting archive of business correspondence from the Urbana Wine Company, a pioneering Finger Lakes winery, established in 1865. At the period covered here, the 1890s, New York had established itself as a dominant wine producer- second only to California. Urbana's product line included sweet and dry Catawba, claret, Tokay, port, brandy and sherry. The company's 'Gold Seal' champagne - special dry, extra dry and brut - was the leading American sparkling white at the time, and later in the next century, following prohibition, the company greatly influenced the region's viticulture by hiring a manager from Veuve Cliquot. The archive can be divided into the following sections: 1. 48 typed and autograph letters signed, (two incomplete) from Urbana sales representative, John L. Huss, totaling 126 pages, regarding wine customers, their likes and dislikes, and orders for wine, from hotels and restaurants, saloons, hospitals, rail cars, etc., largely in New England and New York City. January 1897 - March 1898. These are substantial and detailed letters written on the road from an aggressive salesman (at one point he apologizes for an angry outburst, saying "you didn't hire me for my looks,") who cultivates business in a broad spectrum of venues, from local road houses to the Boston Yacht Club and fancy hotels. 2. 20 autograph letters signed, totaling 38 pages from the President of the Urbana Wine Company, W. E. Hildreth, to the Director and Manager, J. W. Davis, regarding advertising and marketing, pricing, finances, sales reps (including Mr. Huss, above) and other executive matters. 3. 3 autograph letters, signed and 1 typed letter signed by J. W. Davis, Director and Manager, mostly regarding appointments. September 1893-December 1897. 4. 7 typed letters signed, and 3 autograph letters signed, by Alpha S. DeLissa, wine and spirit merchant, to J. W. Davis of the Urbana Wine Company, regarding orders and shipments, together with 8 bank receipts, outlining payments made by DeLissa to Urbana. November 1893-April 1895. 5. Approximately 100 pieces of correspondence from customers and vendors of the Urbana Wine Company, including orders from private individuals, hotels and restaurants from as far away as Texas, but mostly from the northeast. Various sizes, various dates. 6. A dozen miscellaneous ephemeral items relating to the Urbana Wine Company, including order slips and bills. The Urbana Wine Company, was located four miles north of the village of Hammondsport, in the town of Urbana, Steuben County, New York. The winery was established in 1865, and known as the Urbana Wine Company until 1881 when it was reorganized under the name of "New Urbana Wine Company." The company applied for the Gold Seal trademark in 1887. The company was renamed the "Urbana Wine Company" in 1896. The company reorganized after the passage of the Volstead Act and the beginning of Prohibition, and renamed the Gold Seal Products Company. During Prohibition the company produced sacramental wine. After Prohibition the name was returned to "Urbana Wine Company, Inc." After Prohibition, Edward Stewart Underhill, Jr., President of the company went to Rheims, France and brought Charles Fournier, from Veuve Cliquot, where he served as production manager. Underhill hired him as the winemaker and production manager of Urbana Wine Company, and although Fournier intended to stay just a few years, he remained employed there the rest of his life. He introduced several important French-American hybrid grape varieties into the production of wine. He was made pr

        Photograph Album with Early Albumen Photographic Views of India, Burma, Penang, compiled by a British Missionary or Colonial Official circa 1860s

      Hardcover. Very Good. Folio, album containing 61 photographs, nine of which are loose, mounted on 31 leaves, bound in contemporary ? roan and brown covered cloth boards, binding worn, front cover detached, but present, portions of back-strip missing, old tape repairs to binding, some foxing to mounting leaves, else very good.This very interesting album contains early views of locations in Burma, India, both southern and northern, Penang, and in the compiler's native England. many of the images were presumably taken by the unidentified compiler of this album.The views are largely identified in pencil either on mounting leaves, or in the case of the loose photographs in pencil on the verso of the image or on laid in sheets of paper with a numbered key. Most of the photographs are large, ranging in size from 9 x 7 inches to 2 ? x 3 ? inches at the smallest. Two of the images are dated in pencil "1865," most of the images based on costume styles are clearly from this period. However, several images may be from the 1850s, one image taken in India notes the presence of "Sepoy gardeners," who were undoubtedly fired after the uprising in 1857. The views include several of Pagodas in Burma, including the Shouay Dagon and Shwedagon Pagoda in Rangoon, now Yangan, Myanmar. The entrance to "Shingodama's Pagoda, Kenindine," "Lyator Traveller's House - Tennyen," a view of the village of Tennyen, "Kyoung in Kenindine," and other views in and around Kenindine.There are numerous views of India including: views of Quilon, now Kollom, and old seaport and city on the Laccadive sea coast in Kerala; "Col Stevenson's garden & part of Backwater with Sepoy gardeners &c - Quilon," and "Mr. Liddells grounds & landing place on Backwater - Quilon." The album contains 11 views of the Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram, a town in Kancheepuram District of the Indian State of Tamil Nadu. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are images of the Pancha Rathans, rock temples and sanctuaries, the Sthalasayam Perumi Temple, the Descent of the Ganges, a rock relief carved on two monolithic boulders, and other sites.There is a view of the "Mission Church at Palamcottah from the compound of the Training Institution," Palamcottah during British rule was a town in the Tinnevelly District of Madras, which was at the time the center of missionary activity in South India.There are two mounted views of a Dak Bungalow and mountain lodge in Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh, dated in pencil 1865.There are four views of Penang: including a waterfall, "Church," "Fort at Penang from the sea," and "Landing Place - Penang." The loose views include images of Burma and India. Including two large views of the Shwedagon Pagoda, and a view entitled: "Irama. Basket making at the foot of the Hill & large bamboo growing near" . Which is likely taken somewhere in Java.There are three views of Coonoor, and one of the public gardens at Ooty. Coonoor is a Taluk and municipality in the Niligris district in the State of Tamil Nadu, India. Coonoor is at an altitude of 1850m above sea level and is the second largest hill station after Ooty. The compiler of the album was apparently stationed in Coonoor. The view of the town of Coonoor is marked with a small line showing where their cottage was located. There is an image identified as "Travancore", which was an Indian Kingdom from 1729 to 1949 which at its zenith covered most of modern day central and southern Kerala, Kanyakumi District. In the early 19th century it became a princely state of the British Empire. The other loose image, is slightly later than the 1860s, based on costume style, and is identified on the verso as "Mrs. Ashmore her daughter, her son - his wife & daughter."The remaining images in the album are of houses, people and localities in England, some, as in the image below, are marked "Cockington?" in pencil on the mounting leaf.

        Manuscrit partiel du livre "Les Mariages de la Créole" devant paraître chez l'éditeur Dentu en 1865 mais interdit par les autorités françaises. [ Un Cas de Censure sous le Second Empire ]

      1865 - 154 feuillets manuscrits in-8, s.d. (circa 1865), du feuillet 52 au feuillet 205, avec mention des noms des typographes Etonnant manuscrit provenant du fonds de l'éditeur Edouard Dentu. Pour comprendre l'intérêt de ce manuscrit inédit, on citera Marie Bonaparte Wyse elle-même, dans la préface à l'édition belge de son oeuvre : "Ce livre devait paraître à Paris ; il paraît à Bruxelles. Le manuscrit que l'éditeur belge a envoyé à l'imprimerie était demeuré pendant plus d'un an entre les mains de M. Dentu. L'énumération des obstacles de toutes sortes qui en ont retardé d'abord, ensuite empêché la publication en France, formerait la matière d'un volume plus gros que celui-ci". Ayant annoncé, la publication de son roman, elle se heurta à de nombreuses difficultés. Notamment, expose-t-elle, " j'envoyai par la poste, à mon éditeur, la dernière partie de mon roman que je m'étais empressé d'achever, parce que sa publication immédiate paraissait être le moyen le plus propre à mettre un terme aux suppositions malveillantes dont il était l'objet. J'attendis, mais en vain, un accusé de réception de la part de mon éditeur. Hélas ! Il n'avait rien reçu. Le manuscrit avait disparu ! " . " Malgré tous les obstacles le livre paraîtra, disais-je. J'avais tort.". "On décida que mon volume ne paraîtrait pas." . "J'écrivis à M. Dentu pour presser l'apparition du livre. Ici 1000 petits embarras dont je n'ose rechercher la cause : tantôt M. Dentu prend un prétexte, tantôt il en prend un autre, pour ne publier le livre que la semaine ou le mois suivant ; c'est une épreuve qui s'est perdue en route ; c'est une erreur totale dans un chapitre ; c'est la suppression de quelques lignes qui font longueurs dans un autre ; c'est une menace qu'on disait venue de la préfecture de police : on saisira le livre arbitrairement, sans motif avoué, sans procès à venir, etc. etc. M. Dentu, effrayé, hésite. Il veut réfléchir. Je le mets en demeure de faire paraître le volume ou de me rendre le manuscrit. Il joint son bon à tirer au mien". ."On s'adresse à la justice. Oh ! Pas de procès cependant ! . Mais des menaces : M. Dentu et son imprimeur, Simon Raçon se dirent mandés au parquet. . bref, l'imprimeur eu peur ou fit semblant d'avoir peur de perdre son brevet ; il refusa de livrer les feuilles composées. L'éditeur m'écrivit pour me demander le prix de l'impression. L'ironie se joignait à l'injustice. . Et voilà pourquoi Les Mariages de la Créole paraissent à Bruxelles. » Le Journal de Xavier Marmier (Droz, 1987) éclaire plus nettement l'origine des soucis rencontrés dans la publication du roman : Marie Rattazzi y dévoilait le détail des amours illégitimes du riche propriétaire du Creusot, l'industriel Eugène Schneider : " Averti de la prochaine publication de ce livre, M. Schneider a tout fait pour l'empêcher. Il est parvenu de nouveau à la retarder, et l'on dit que Mme Ratttazzi renoncera à son oeuvre s'il lui donne de l'argent". Notre manuscrit (partiel mais conséquent), vraisemblablement rédigé par un secrétaire (par deux fois, on relève le nom de "M. Séné" ou "Léné"), corrigé par une main vive en divers endroits (par l'auteur ?), provient du fonds de la famille Dentu. On s'explique alors mieux les nombreuses différences observables entre le manuscrit et l'édition belge de 1866. Par exemple, dans le manuscrit, l'héroïne Marguerite conserve plusieurs chapitres durant son prénom original, avant de lui préférer " le nom bizarre, original, et franchement créole, de Magarthy".

Nachdem er am 26. Februar 1863 zum Bischof von Basel gewählt worden war, bestätigte Papst Pius IX. die Wahl am 26. Oktober desselben Jahres. Die Bischofsweihe spendete ihm am 30. November 1863 der damalige Bischof von Strassburg, Andreas Räss, in der Kathedrale Solothurn. Lachat wurde im Zuge des Kulturkampfes am 29. Januar 1873 von den Diözesanständen Aargau, Solothurn, Bern, Basel-Landschaft und Thurgau von seinem Amt abgesetzt, während ihn Luzern und Zug weiterhin als rechtmässigen Bischof betrachteten“ (Wikipedia). 1863 erschien in Paris eine über 300 Seiten umfassende Monographie über Lachat von Edouard Hornstein („Biographie de Monseigneur Lachat eveque de Bale“). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch 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.

        Stone Talk, Being Some of the Marvellous Sayings of a Petral Portion of Fleet Street, London, to One Doctor Polyglott

Some abrasion to the inner margins (from the re-binding process) visible at the gutter, otherwise very clean. No errata leaf. Armorial bookplate of Alan Cathart, Lord Cathcart laid in. Penzer (pp 77-78) describes this work as "a bitter satire, in blank verse, enumerating many of the crimes which England has committed, and castigating her hypocrisy," and deems it "certainly one of the cleverest of all Burton's books." He ascribes its rarity in part to the fact that Isabel Burton bought up and destroyed a large number of the copies, also noting that it is likely fewer than 200 were printed to begin with.

        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'. Beautifully illustrated by the famous British caricaturist and illustrator George Cruikshank, and by Hablot K. Browne. With frontispieces to each volume.
