        Autograph Letter Signed, January 23, 1866 to Mr. Hachett about a missing agreement

      [Freshwater, Isle of Wight]: by the author, Jan. 23, 1866. original. Matted. Very Good +. matted engraving of the poet. Original Autograph Letter Signed as "A. Tennyson" (1809-1892) on personal stationery with embossed lettering (upper right), penned in brown ink, in which the Poet Laureat replies to Mr. Hackett that he has mislaid a [book contract (?)] but accepts as valid the copy that his correspondent has provided. Matted original ALS with a fine engraving of Tennyson, with a copy of the signature by the poet on verso, and a printed label identifying the poet, his famous work "The Charge of the Light Brigade," & information about his son Hallam.With embossed lettering (upper right) of "Freshwater" [?]--his mansion on the Isle of Wight--and writing that he has loosely penned in brown ink. Scarce: A reluctant correspondent, Tennyson hated the writing of letters. Futhermore, his most important correspondence with Arthur Hallam was destroyed. This letter appears to have been written to a publisher--possibly relating to his recent work Enoch Arden and Other Poems (1862/1864). In April, 1862, near the time Enoch Arden had been published, the Laureate met widowed Queen Victoria. She thus described him in her diary, "very peculiar looking, tall, dark, with a fine head, long black flowing hair & a beard, — oddly dressed, but there is no affectation about him."In Tennyson's tragic poem Enoch Arden written in 1862 and soon republished in 1864, Enoch Arden, the protagonist was a fisherman who had lost his job due to an accident. When his old captain offered him his old job as a merchant sailor, Enoch manfully left his wife and children to earn a living that would better support them. Tragically, however, Enoch became shipwrecked on a desert island like Robinson Crusoe After his two companions die, he became isolated for more than a decade. Eventually, he managed to return to his wife but found that she--believing him dead--had happily remarried an old mutual friend and rival by whom she had a child. Though his life was now ruined, because Enoch loved his wife too much to ruin hers by reappearing and complicating matters, so he dies broken hearted.Very near the time of this letter in 1866, Tennyson--who had been made Poet Laureate in 1850 through the influence of Prince Albert--had recently turned down a baronetcy offered to him by Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. (He would later accept one from Gladstone.)

        Contrôle des Chemins de Fer. Ligne de Paris à Brest. Réseau d'Orléans. Profil géologique suivant le tracé du chemin de fer dressé sur les indications de M.M. Triger et Delesse. Notice par M. Mille ingénieur en Chef des Ponts et Chaussées 1867.

      - Paris, Jules Bonaventure, 1866-1867. In four parts. 4to. Title-page, 9 pp. (text volume); one folded, chromolithographed profile (31.0 x 99.8 cm), titled: "Coupe des huillères de Chalonnes d'après les travaux des ingénieurs de la mine"; one very long folded profile (31 x 957 cm, including title and legend) titled: "Section de Paris à Angers par Vendôme et Tours"; a second very long folded chromolithographed profile (31 x 1147 [!] cm), title: "Section de Angers à Brest par Nantes et Chateaulin". All four contained in a blindstamped cloth portfolio with gilt title on the spine and top board.= The amazingly long profile runs from Paris to Brest, at the western tip of Brittany, in a scale of 1:40.000. Total length of the sheets is some 22 meters, all printed and coloured in fine detail. In fact the profile is even longer, as some additional profile sections are printed below the main sequence. The surface topography is shown, including hills and valleys, and the places were towns are situated, as well as the occassional chateau, wind mill, river, etc., all subterranean geological layers with their names (each coloured differently), and all relevant coordinates and topgraphical names. This is the work of engineers of the French "Corps des ingénieurs des ponts et chaussées", founded in 1716, and who have been responsible for all road, bridge, and railroad development in France ever since. A massive and wonderful work. Rare. Neither in Brunet nor in Ward and Carozzi. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Feldbriefe. Herausgegeben von Max Mehler. Privatdruck, Aachen 1910. Gr.8°, Leinwandeinband, 3 montierte s-w-Fotos mit Portraits Mehlers, 2 aufklappbare Karten (Druck nach handgezeichneter und colorierter Vorlage), ca. 150 Seiten.

      - Zustand: Buch etwas gewölbt, Gelenke geringst angeplatzt, eine Karte mit Einriss (ca. 3cm), sonst sehr schön. Das Buch war nie im Handel, wurde wahrscheinlich nur in einer sehr kleinen Auflage gedruckt. Der Autor war Teilhaber der Maschinenbau-Frabrik Nolten & Mehler (wohl) in Aachen. Das Vorwort lautet: „Einer Anregung meiner Mutter folgend, habe ich die Briefe Vaters aus den ruhmreichen Feldzügen 1866 und 1870/71 sowie zwei Jugendbriefe aus dem Jahre 1857 drucken lassen, damit jedes der Kinder die Briefe in Händen hat [.]. Aachen, Weihnachten 1910, Max Mehler". Die Quelle ist von sowohl für die Geschichte der Kampfhandlungen und der im Text erwähnten Einheiten, als auch für die Industriegeschichte Aachens von höchster Bedeutung. 27 abgedruckte Briefe schrieb Mehler vom Feldzug 1866 (46 Seiten), 40 Briefe vom Feldzug 1870/71 (100 Seiten). Am Ende sind 2 Jugendbriefe abgedruckt (4 Seiten). Die Briefe erzählen sowohl von den Feldzügen, bringen aber auch Interna der Fabrik Nolten & Mehler. Carl Mehler stammte aus Aachen und machte 1857 sein Examen. Im selben Jahr reiste er zu Verwandten nach Fulda, um die „Bergwissenschaft" zu studieren. In einem Brief 1857 spricht er aber auch davon, Maschinenbau zu studieren und hernach in einer Fabrik in Aachen zu arbeiten. Vom 1.10.1863 bis zum 1.10.1864 diente er beim 2. Rheinischen Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 28 in Aachen. Am 29.10.1864 wurde er zum überzähligen Unteroffizier ernannt. 1866 wurde er bei der Mobilmachung zum 1. Rhein. IR Nr. 25 nach Sonderburg (Schleswig) eingezogen. Die 27 Briefe wurden verfasst in Sonderburg, Harburg, Bollstedt bei Mühlhausen/Thüringen, Mackenzell bei Fulda, Schönau a.d. fränkischen Saale, Kleinostheim bei Aschaffenburg, Wörth am Main, Uettingen bei Würzburg, Zellingen, Lohr, Roßbach, Fulda, Frankfurt, Walluf, Caub bei Bingen, Oberwallmenach und Dahlheim. Die schöne farbige Karte „Übersichtsskizze für die Märsche und Gefechte des I. Rhein. Inf. Regts. No. 25 im Feldzuge 1866" (aufgelappt 52x40cm) zeigt anschaulich den Verlauf des Marsches. Der erste Brief vom Krieg gegen Frankreich datiert auf den 22.7.1870. Mehler dient im 8. Rhein. IR Nr. 70 als Vizefeldwebel der Reserve. Er scheint in der Forma Nolten & Mehler eine leitende Position inne zu haben (wohl als Gründer einen Direktorenposten). Die Firma war wohl im produzierenden Maschinenbaugewerbe tätig (Lokomotiven? Werkzeugmaschinen?). 1870 wird er zum Leutnant der Landwehr ernannt. Bis September 1870 ist sein Regiment als Festungsbesatzung in Saarlouis stationiert, danach geht es nach Frankreich. An der Belagerung von Metz nimmt Mehlers Einheit teil, dann am langen Vormarsch durch Frankreich (über Reims und Amiens bis Rouen, dann St. Quentin – hierzu die aufklappbare Karte, Größe 34x52cm). Der letzte Brief datiert vom 28.2.1871. Die Briefe aus dem Krieg sind überwiegend an seinen Freund und Angestellten (wohl Prokuristen) Johann gerichtet (ca. 1/5 der Texte beziehen sich dabei auf Interna der Firma).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Paris, 27. VII. 1866.

      1866. 2½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. "Dear Mr. Bouer [?] / I entreat of you to write to me - send your letter on a Thursday, thro' Lord Bloomfield's 'Bag' under cover to Mr. Beaumont (Somerset), 144 Piccadilly. I count on you. I can tell you little from here, for Paris is quite a second rate actor in this drama leaning mostly on poor Austria's consent to seem obliged to the Emperor N. for something. The French Empire is far more beaten than the Austrian one - but then there is this difference that the 'French Empire' is not France. Pray write to me, and give me news [...] Tell me about all our particular friends". - Die schottischstämmige Rose Stewart hatte den französischen Diplomaten und Schriftsteller Henri Blaze de Bury geheiratet, dessen heute bekanntestes Werk wohl seine Faust-Übersetzung darstellt. Durch ihren Salon zählte die u. a. mit Bismarck gut bekannte Baronne zu den hervorragendsten Persönlichkeiten der Pariser literarischen Szene der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jhs.

        DESIGNS FOR THE GATEWAYS OF THE SOUTHERN ENTRANCES TO THE CENTRAL PARK

      New York, 1866. 36pp. plus five color lithographs, four with facing explanatory plans. Large quarto. Original salmon cloth, gilt titles on front cover. Moderate staining to rear cover, minor edge wear, spine ends chipped. Small half-moon faint dampstain to bottom edge. A good plus copy. A rare illustrated color plate book illustrating proposed entrances to New York City's Central Park by renowned American architect Richard Morris Hunt. Hunt was the first American to train at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and became an influential teacher of architecture in America, as well as a practicing architect. In addition to public buildings such as the Lenox Library, the Great Hall of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, he designed several mansions for notable families on Fifth Avenue, and also "The Breakers" in Newport, Rhode Island for Cornelius Vanderbilt and "Biltmore" for George Vanderbilt in Asheville, North Carolina. A memorial to Hunt stands in Central Park today at the perimeter wall at Fifth Avenue and 70th Street. The attractive color lithographed plates show various proposed entrances to the southern end of Central Park. The most striking plate, the frontispiece, shows Hunt's design for a terrace at Fifth Avenue and Fifty-Ninth Street, an elaborate echo of the Bethesda Terrace designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, but with a small fountain on each side of each of the fifteen steps on each side of the design, leading down to a larger fountain at the base of the stairs. All of the plates and plans are executed by master lithographer, Julius Bien. In the end, none of Hunt's entrances appear to have been built, possibly due to a feud between Hunt and Olmsted over a proposed gate at 60th Street and Fifth Avenue. The disagreement caused both Olmsted and Vaux to resign their positions with the Central Park project, though they eventually rejoined the effort. An especially rare work in the marketplace, and one that imagines what part of Central Park could have looked like if one of the leading contemporary architects of the day had been included in the design.

        Poems and Ballads. [First Series - Third Series.]

      John Camden Hotten; Chatto & Windus; Chatto & Windus 1866 - FIRST EDITIONS, the First Series second issue (but in a first issue binding), 3 vols., 8vo, pp. [ii], vii, [i], 344; [ii], ix, [i], 240, 36 (ads); viii, 181, [3], 32 (ads). Original cloth, the First Series in straight-grained green cloth with boards blocked in blind and spine lettered in gilt, cream endpapers, Second and Third series in dark greenish-blue cloth, front boards bordered in gilt and spines lettered in gilt, floral endpapers, the Third Series almost entirely unopened. First Series somewhat foxed internally, occasional spotting in the other two. Spine ends bumped, a few marks and spots to bindings, small scar to spine of Second Series and a short tear to its lower joint. Bookseller's ticket of Thomas Thorne, Newcastle in First Series. 'Poems and Ballads sparked a controversy which has few rivals in English poetry. Even if he had never published anything else, Swinburne's fame was assured by this small green volume of 344 pages. It was a dazzling collection' while the Second Series is a 'worthy if less controversial successor' (ODNB); the Third Series is less significant, being typical of his later poetry, but it is not often that all three are found together in their first editions. The copy of the First Series is a curious one: the initial printing of 1,000 copies was done for Edward Moxon, but nervousness over the criticism of the book led to the manager withdrawing it and passing the sheets to John Camden Hotten, who supplied a new half-title and title-page with his imprint, as well as a slightly different binding (omitting Moxon's name from the foot of the spine, and his monogram from the blind decoration on the boards). It is known that this process was somewhat sloppy, with copies surviving in various states of cancellation, including in the second issue binding with the original Moxon title-page uncancelled, as well as various states of the corrective cancels in the text that Moxon had been introducing. Hotten later produced a 'concealed' second edition, though this is distinguishable by some typographic chances and by being on different paper. This copy, however, has the distinction of being the first edition in its second, Hotten, issue internally, with the cancel title-page (and all the cancels in the text that Wise notes), but in the original, first-issue, Moxon binding with the EM monogram in the blind decoration on the boards, and 'MOXON' in gilt at the foot of the spine. If Hotten only acquired the sheets, this copy makes no sense; perhaps Moxon also passed to Hotten some cloth cases not yet used for binding? The Second Series was printed in an edition of 2,000 copies, half of them in foolscap, bound to match the First Series, but the other half, as here, in crown 8vo and bound to match most of Swinburne's later works. The Third Series had only one issue, of 1,000 copies, in the Chatto binding matching the Second Series. Wise 26 (and 25), 66, 92. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Köln, 8. X. 1866.

      1866. 4 SS. 8vo. "Sie müssen schon das Loos aller meiner Freunde theilen und sich an große Nachsicht mit mir in Bezug auf Correspondenz gewöhnen. Ich habe schon zwei Briefe erhalten und aus dem letzten mit Freude erfahren, daß Sie tüchtig am Componieren sind und das hat mich eben auch angeregt, den Versuch zu wagen, Ihnen mein Opernbuch zu liefern. Nachdem ich einige Tage lang schwedische Geschichte studiert habe, bin ich bei Gustav Wasa geblieben, habe mein historisches und philologisches Gewissen alsdann beschwichtigt und den Stoff frei behandelt. Ich glaube, die Sache wird sich machen: ich habe im scenischen Entwurf 3 Akte fertig und für den 4ten (und letzten) auch schon das Nöthige in petto. Ich muss aber Gustav zum Tenor machen, denn eine Episode mit einem anderen Tenor, der jedenfalls eine untergeordnete Rolle spielen würde, behagt mir nicht [...]". - Bischoff war Sohn eines Cellisten, studierte in Berlin Philologie und arbeitete nach seiner Teilnahme an den Kriegen von 1813-15 als Lehrer in der Schweiz und in Berlin. 1823-49 war er Direktor des Gymnasiums in Wesel und beschäftigte sich mit Musiktheorie. 1849 siedelte er nach Köln über, gründete dort die "(Nieder-)Rheinische Musikzeitung" und schrieb für die "Kölnische Zeitung". Neben zahlreichen Musikkritiken verfaßte er Militärberichte sowie ein Opernlibretto.

IV. 1882), hier als Ausschnitt beiliegend. - Braun gehörte von 1849 bis 1851 der Ständeversammlung und danach bis 1866 der zweiten Kammer des Landtages vom Herzogtum Nassau an. Zwischen 1858 und 1863 war er Präsident des Parlaments. Er war ein führendes Mitglied der Nassauischen Volkspartei. Im Jahr 1862 schloss er sich dem deutschen Nationalverein an. Wichtig war seine Rolle im Volkswirtschaftlichen Kongress, dessen Tagungspräsident er ein Jahr nach der Gründung 1858 bis zur letzten Tagung im Jahre 1880 war. Nach der Annexion Nassaus 1866 gehörte Braun von 1867 bis 1879 dem preußischen Abgeordnetenhaus an. Außerdem war er Mitglied des Norddeutschen Reichstages und von 1871 bis 1887 des Deutschen Reichstages. Er gehörte dort als einer der Führer den Fraktionen der Nationalliberalen Partei an. In der Partei selber saß Braun von 1867 bis 1878 im Vorstand. Die Partei verließ er 1880 wegen der Zustimmung zu Bismarcks Schutzzollpolitik. Er gehörte von da an den Sezessionisten, deren prominenteste Mitglieder Ludwig Bamberger und Eugen Richter waren, an. 1873 übernahm Braun die Herausgabe der Spenerschen Zeitung zu Berlin, die jedoch schon 1874 einging. Darüber hinaus war Braun Direktor des Vereins für Nassauische Altertumskunde und Geschichtsforschung. Außerdem veröffentlichte er volkswirtschaftliche und staatsrechtliche Schriften.

        [ON THE RUSSIAN-AMERICAN RELATIONSHIP IN THE 19TH CENTURY] Opisaniye priema sdelannogo 5-go avgusta 1866 goda blagorodnym sobraniyem predstaviteliu Severo-Amerikanskogo kongresa mister Foksu [i.e. Description of the reception given to the representative of the North American Congress Mr. Fox by the Assembly of the Nobility on the 5th August 1866]

      St. Petersburg: A.A. Kraevskiy, 1866. 8 pp. 8vo. Original wrappers. Fine copy with owner's stamp on the front cover and shop's stamp on the back cover, some soiling to the covers and very small tear to the front cover. Very rare. After the Russian tsar, Alexander II, narrowly escaped assassination on April 16, 1866, Congress passed a joint resolution on May 16 that expressed a deep personal sympathy and solidarity with Russia, reinforced by the terrible memory of Lincoln's assassination the year before. Gustavus Fox (1821-1883), an officer of the US Navy, was chosen to convey the message personally to Russia. This book gives a detailed description of one of the evenings of Fox's visit to Russia with accounts of the warm welcoming reception he and his team were given there. Judging by the owner's stamp, the book belonged to Fyodor Aleksandrovich Vitberg (1846-1919), the Russian writer, bibliographer, and collector of Russian historical documents.

        Autograph letter signed. London, "1 Modenas Villas Maitland Park", 26. IX. 1866.

      1866. 8vo. 3½ pages on bifolium (remnants of paste to blank lower half of p. 4, minor soiling to p.1, puncture to vertical centre fold). To the Chartist Collet Dobson Collet, a review of the electoral system in the German states. Marx, evidently responding to an enquiry from Collet, lists ten significant points about the German electoral and parliamentary systems, beginning with the facts that members of the Prussian lower house are paid, but those of the electoral colleges are not, that election costs are paid out of provincial exchequers (adding an observation on the division of electoral districts: "Aliquot parts of the population choose each one member for Parliament"), and that there is no qualification for becoming a member of parliament or of the electoral colleges. A substantial paragraph is devoted to explaining the income-based composition of these electoral colleges: "The primary voters include all men from the age of 25 years who pay any direct tax. Certain direct taxes are paid by almost everybody, even servants"; these voters are divided into three electoral classes, depending on how much tax they pay, and "Each of the three electoral classes so formed elects the same number of secondary electors who form the electoral body that finally nominates the members of Parliament'". After explaining two other details of the Prussian system, Marx explains that 'The modes of election throughout Germany are far from uniform. Generally, however, the system of double elections prevails', though he notes that in Bavaria there is not the Prussian division into classes; in terms of probity and discipline, "Cases of electoral bribery are absolutely unknown in all German states", "The daily attendance of members of Parliament is rigorously enforced' and there exists no equivalent of the British 'count-out'; finally, ministers can take part in parliamentary debates even if not members, but cannot of course vote".

        Treaty between the United States of America and the Sans Arcs band of Dakota or Sioux Indians. Concluded October 20, 1865. Ratification advised, with amendment March 5, 1866. Proclaimed March 17, 1866.

      [Washington: publisher not identified Folio (31.4 cm; 12.375"). 6, [2] pp.. 1866] Printed version of the treaty between the United States government and the Sans Arc Lakota signed by Newton Edmunds (governor of the Dakota Territory), Edward B. Taylor (superintendent of Indian affairs for the northern superintendency), Gen. H.H. Sibley, Wah-mun-dee-o-pee-doo-tah (The War Eagle with the Red Tail), Cha-tau-'hne (Yellow Hawk), Shon-kah-we-te-ko (The Fool Dog), and others at Fort Sully, Dakota Territory, on 20 October 1865. The treaty states that the United States will pay each family thirty dollars annually for twenty years for their decisions to "withdraw from the route overland already established," ceasing all warfare with other groups, and to settle future disputes by using the president as an arbitrator. The government promises that it will provide protection from "annoyance or molestation on the part of whites or Indians" should members of the group settle permanently to engage in agricultural pursuits, and offers further incentives for their doing so. It was ratified 5 March 1866 and later proclaimed by President Johnson on March 17.
