        The Life of Josiah Wedgwood

      London: Hurst and Blackett, 1865. Two volumes, thick octavo, two engraved portrait frontispieces (the first neatly repaired along gutter-edge), double-page pair of chromolithograph plates of borders, numerous wood engravings in the text; ALS from Josiah Wedgwood II (son of Josiah Wedgwood) attached to verso of frontispiece in first volume; fine condition in striking three-quarter red morocco, gilt lettering and decoration on spine, gilt edges. A fascinating and comprehensive work on the life of Josiah Wedgwood (1730-1795) the famous English potter who established the grand firm which carries his name, and who is of particular Australian interest as the creator of the Sydney Cove Medallion.An investigation into the nature of the clay of the Sydney basin had been one of the first requests given to Governor Phillip, and he sent home a series of specimens to Sir Joseph Banks as soon as he was able. Banks was a close associate of Josiah Wedgwood, and some of the clay was immediately dispatched in order to create the Medallion. The medallion was designed by Henry Webber with the final finishing of the moulds done by William Hackwood, Wedgwood's principal modeller. The full title of the medallion is "Hope encouraging Art and Labour, under the influence of Peace, to pursue the employments necessary to give security and happiness to an infant settlement". An engraving of the design adorned the title-page of Phillip's Voyage (1789), and a fine depiction of the Medallion is also included in this work (II, p, 568).Meteyard's work is also of great interest for the number of engravings of cameo portraits which it includes, such as the famous portrait of Sir Joseph Banks as a young man, as well as those of John Fothergill, the artist John Flaxman, and Sir Joshua Reynolds, quite apart from an almost endless array of illustrations of some of Wedgwood's finest work, including one of the famous Portland Vase.The short note signed by Josiah Wedgwood II tipped-on to the verso of the frontispiece is of some interest, being a note about [Thomas] Minton's purchase of some clay at Liverpool, with a note on costs.

The list of advertisements on the rear cover includes "The Banjo, and How to Play It," which was published in 1872 and appears to be a companion to this title. Sound binding and hinges.

New York Tribune, May 9, 1865, 8pp, folded folio, frontpage news on Sherman ""His Army Homeward Bound"", enthusiasm of the colored people, ""The Assassination: The Trial to Commence Today"", news from Washington. The New York Tribune was established by Horace Greeley in 1841 and was long considered one of the leading newspapers in the United States. The Tribune was created by Greeley with the hopes of providing a straightforward, trustworthy media source in an era when newspapers such as the New York Sun and New York Herald thrived on sensationalism. Although considered the least partisan of the leading newspapers, the Tribune did reflect some of Horace Greeley's idealist views. During the American Civil War (1861-1865) the tribune was a radical republican newspaper, which supported abolition and subjection of the confederacy instead of negotiated peace. During the first few months of the war, the tribune's ""on to Richmond"" slogan presured Union general Irvin McDowell into advancing on Richmond before his army was ready, resulting in the disaster at the First Battle of Manassas (July 21, 1861). after the failure of the Peninsular Campaign (spring 1862), the tribune pressured president Abraham Lincoln into instating John Pope as commander of the army of the Potomac."

        Admiral David D. Porter promotes the purchase of the Island of St. Thomas

      "A scarce imprint relative to William Seward's attempt to purchase the Danish Virgin Island of St. Thomas between 1865 and 1868: ""THE ISLAND OF ST. THOMAS. LETTER OF VICE-ADMIRAL DAVID D. PORTER TO THE SECRETARY OF STATE."" three conjoined pages, front and verso, 8.25"" x 13"", Annapolis, November 6,1867, a transcript of Porter's report to Seward, the strategic advantages of purchasing the island concluded, ""I think St. Thomas is the keystone to the arch of the West Indies; it commands them all. It is of more importance to us than to any other nation, and if Europe was at leasure and its attention not distracted by its own complications, we would not be allowed to get the island on any terms. The chances are that we may not get it yet. The people of St. Thomas may prefer their present independent position to being mixed up with our difficulties."" Lightly toned and stained, small tear, small loss at lower left edge and punch hole at upper edge, both in blank areas, else very good condition.William Seward first began contemplating the idea of purchasing St. Thomas during the Civil War. While the majority of the islands in the West Indies sympathized with the the Confederacy, providing critical ports to blockade runners, the governor of the Danish island of St. Thomas was so friendly to the United States that Union ships could obtain special favors, serenely and openly. The Lincoln Administration was in need of a Caribbean base for refitting and processing of captured prizes, and the Danes were most likely to part with one of their possessions for a price. Seward first broached the subject with the Danish Minster in Washington in January 1865. After two years of negotiations, Denmark agreed to sell the islands of St. John and St. Thomas for $7.5 million with the condition that the islands residents be able to approve the annexation in a vote. St. Thomas was a lucrative free port and Admiral Porter, like many observers saw numerous reasons why the islanders might reject the proposal. Despite these fears, the islanders voted overwhelmingly for annexation. However the purchase was never ratified in the Senate due to the recent purchase of Alaska and the distraction over the Andrew Johnson impeachment. Ulysses S. Grant finally killed the project, pronouncing it ""'a scheme of Sewards,' and would have nothing to do with it.""Both islands (together with St. Croix) became part of the United States in 1917 in exchange for $25 million in gold. The purchase came about after an islander, David Hamilton Jackson, who campaigned against Danish mismanagement of the territory, convinced the King of Denmark government to sell the islands. "

        General Nelson A. Miles, in command of Fort Monroe, reports that ?the prisoner ?Davis? is feeling quite comfortable this morning ... I do not think it possible for him to escape, even if the sentinels are taken out of the front room, he will still be under two locks, aside from the Guard in front of his cell.?

      "Autograph Letter Signed ?Nelson A. Miles? as ?Bvt Maj Gen U.S. Vols / Comdg Dist.,? two conjoined pages, 7.75? x 9.75?. Head Quarters Military District, Fort Monroe, August 22, 1865. To an unnamed General, undoubtedly Assistant Adjutant General Edward D. Townsend to whom Miles sent all his reports about the prisoners and mail to be forwarded. Ink stain at top right of first page. Expertly strengthened on verso at folds. Fine condition.In full, ?I have the honor to state that the prisoner ?Davis? is feeling quite comfortable this morning, complaining a little however of erysipelas in the face and a carbuncle on his leg. I also enclose a communication from [Clement] Clay to the ?Sec of War? together with a letter to his wife which he desires, forwarded. In regard to the Sentinels, when they were taken out of his room he said they did not disturbe or waken him, lately they have been required to make as little noise as possible and not to walk around in the room. I do not think it possible for him to escape, even if the sentinels are taken out of the front room, he will still be under two locks, aside from the Guard in front of his cell.?On May 19, 1865, the propeller vessel ?William P. Clyde? arrived at Hampton Roads, Virginia, with Confederate prisoners aboard including Jefferson Davis and Confederate Senator and diplomatic agent Clement Claiborne Clay. On May 22nd, Major General Nelson A. Miles arrived to take command of Fort Monroe.From ?Prison Life of Jefferson Davis? by Bvt. Lt. Col. John J. Craven, M.D., ?Late Surgeon U.S. Vols., and Physician of the Prisoner during his Confinement in Fortress Monroe, from May 25, 1865, up to December 25, 1865? (New York: G.W. Dillingham Co., 1866): ?The procession into the fort was simple though momentous ... First came Major-General Miles holding the arm of Mr. Davis, who was dressed in a suit of plain Confederate grey, with a grey slouched hat?"always thin, and now looking much wasted and very haggard. Immediately after these came Colonel Prichard [Michigan Cavalry] accompanying Mr. Clay, with a guard of soldiers in their rear ... Mr. Davis was shown into casemate No. 2 and Clay into No. 4, guards of soldiers being stationed in the cells numbered 1, 3, and 5, upon each side of them. They entered; the heavy doors clanged behind them, and in that clang was rung the final knell of the terrible, but now extinct, rebellion ... On the morning of the 23d of May, a yet bitterer trial was in store for the proud spirit ?" a trial severer, probably, than has ever in modern times been inflicted upon any one who had enjoyed such eminence. This morning Jefferson Davis was shackled ... These fetters were of heavy iron, probably five-eighths of an inch in thickness, and connected together by a chain of like weight ... On the morning of May 24th, I was sent for about half-past 8 A.M., by Major-General Miles; was told that State-prisoner Davis complained of being ill, and that I had been assigned as his medical attendant ...?August 21st. ?" Called with Captain Corlis, on the staff of General Miles, Officer of the Day. Prostration increased, and the erysipelas spreading. Deemed it my duty to send a communication to Major-General Miles, reporting that I found the State-prisoner, Davis, suffering severely from erysipelas in the face and head, accompanied by the usual prostration attending that disease. Also that he had a small carbuncle on his left thigh, his condition denoting a low state of the vital forces...? The information in Dr. Craven?s communication to Miles was included by the General in this letter penned the next day.Ellis Paxson Oberholtzer, in ?A History of the United States Since the Civil War? (New York: The Macmillan Company, 1917), wrote about Davis in Fort Monroe. In part, ?The President of the Confederacy suffered from insomnolency, dyspepsia, neuralgia, boils, carbuncles, erysipelas. Never during any night since his incarceration had he slept for two hours continuously. The creaking boots of the sentinels as they paced the floor, even after it was covered with straw matting, the noise as they hailed each other, the light in his room, his nervous and physical diseases, the lack of full opportunity for exercise were noted by the physician, who made so unfavorable a statement that many thought the distinguished culprit could not live for trial for his crimes.? In this letter, General Miles notes that the sentinels are ?required to make as little noise as possible.? For keeping Jefferson Davis shackled in his cell, General Miles was the target of severe criticism, even in the North."

        Miners! Laboring Men! Mechanics! Rally! Great Mass Meeting at Piper';s Opera House. Adolph Sutro Will Address the Citizens of Virginia City

      [Virginia City, NV], 1865. Very good. 17.25" x 23" broadside printed on cardboard, with portions completed in crayon or charcoal pencil. Some rubbing, a few water spots; very good. Announces a meeting organized to rally popular support and financing for the Sutro Tunnel. Adolph Sutro's proposed four-mile-long drainage tunnel would correct the flooding of the mines under Virginia City, saving pumping costs, allowing for deeper mining, and providing better ventilation and an additional means of egress. The Bank of California and other major mining interests opposed the tunnel, fearing it would decrease their control over the valuable resources of the Comstock Lode. The Bank succeeded in blocking much of Sutro's access to investors, and his plan appeared doomed to failure until the Yellow Jacket Mine Fire (April 1869) killed forty-five miners whose lives might have been spared had the tunnel been in place. Miners became interested in the issue, and the speech announced in this broadside proved to be a critical turning point. The Miners' Union voted to provide Sutro with $50,000 to start the job, and other funders soon followed their lead. The tunnel was successfully completed in 1878 and served as a model for drainage and access tunnels at many other mining sites. Sutro sold his interest in the tunnel the following year, departing a wealthy man for San Francisco, where he was elected Mayor in 1894.

        Malay Ladies.

      Ca 1865 - An unmounted albumen photograph of a group of Malay women and children, with number and title at the lower left "158 Malay ladies". With the blind stamp for G. R. Lambert & Co., Singapore at the lower right. The entire group is seated, with most of the women weaving and working with cloth, with large panels of cloth erected as a backdrop. Lambert & Co. were commercial photographers in Singapore, 1867 - c. 1914. Founded by the German-born Gustave Richard Lambert (b.1846), the firm was by the end of the 19th century the largest and most successful studio in South-East Asia, maintaining branches at various times in Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, and Sumatra. It was appointed photographer to the king of Siam in 1880 and was also extensively patronized by the British colonial authorities to record political occasions and official visits. Although Lambert's personal presence in Singapore was sporadic, under the management of Alexander Koch the studio assembled the most extensive photographic documentation of the area, with a catalogue of views covering almost the entire Malay archipelago. - The Oxford Companion to the Photograph. 7 1/2 x 10".

        AMERICAN COW MILKER MACHINE POSTER, ORIGINAL, 19TH CENTURY EPHEMERA

      1865 - [AMERICANA - 19th CENTURY EPHEMERA] AMERICAN COW MILKER MACHINE POSTER, ORIGINAL. Buffalo, NY: Express Printing Company for the American Cow Milking Machine Co. [n.d. ca. 1865]. 42 x 26 3/4 inches. Woodblock printing: Boldest typeface measures 10 inches tall. L. O. Colvin's "American Cow Milker" was patented in 1860 as the first use of teat cups with a vacuum. The milker was used in England, but the constant vacuum pressure caused problems with the cows' teats. He sold the patent in England for about $5,000, after selling over 1,500 machines. He continued to make improvements and was more successful in America where this undated broadside was published. "Triumphant Success | The Most Important and Valuable Invention of the 19th Century" proclaims the headline; the company is seeking business men to invest/sell the machines; the farmer is being courted. "A sure cure for aching hands & kicking cows." Several archival tape repairs to reverse with no loss of text. Heavy newsprint stock, printed in black. A few small closed tears to edges, and some light foxing. Very good overall. We have located a smaller version of this advertisement, but none this size.
