         Two Manuscript Partial Letters Revealing the Hardships and Mercurial Nature of Gold Prospecting, as the Writer Partakes in the West Coast Gold Rush.

      Buller district [New Zealand] 1867 - Early New Zealand Gold Prospecting Manuscript Letters. 8vo. Two single leafs, each being two pages of a unique letter, each measuring approximately 11 x 18 cm. Both letters are lacking secondary leafs, some age-toning, otherwise in very good condition, and containing early primary source accounts of colonial New Zealand. The writer is unidentified, though his letters reveal some details which might aid in further research. Previous to this mining expedition, he had lived in Melbourne, either owning or working as an employee at a shop. He subsequently opened up his own shop in the Buller district [circa 1864-1866], which he sold at a loss, to try his hand for the second time at gold mining. He set out for gold with another man, presumably a brother, who he refers to simply as Joey and who had also worked in a merchant shop prior to digging for gold. He mentions "knocking about the Colonies" for 14 years, suggesting that he left Great Britain around 1853, but refers to himself as not old, suggesting that he may be in his mid-thirties or forties. Evidently, he was closely acquainted to James Ure Russell, a skilled sea captain and surveyor from Dunedin. [James Ure Russell was a Master Mariner, who in 1867 suffered a bankruptcy. Captain James Ure Russell is listed as a marine surveyor, the 1884 volume of Stone's commercial, Municipal and General Directory. of Dunedin and Suburbs.] He also mentions Mrs. Cowan as recently married, this possibly being Elizabeth Jane Cowan, née Qualtrough, who in 1866 married William Andrew Cowan an immigrant from Ireland who fought in the Waikato war. The couple lived at Pakuranga near Auckland until at least 1870 when their son, the famous writer James Cowan was born. They subsequently settled in Kihikihi. New Zealand's West Coast was the second-richest gold-bearing area of New Zealand after Otago. The West Coast Gold Rush was in full force from 1864 to 1867, creating population in an area which had previously been visited by only a scant few Europeans.

         Civil War

      1867-1881. Interesting archive of four documents [1867-1881] relating to William See, evidently a slave freed during or shortly after the end of the Civil War and living in Texas.

1. The earliest document dated January 1867, at Sterling, Texas is a lengthy manuscript document being an account for the purchase of supplies from July to September 1866, between "William See, Freedman" from I.

2. An autograph letter signed, four full pages, octavo, February 12, 1870, addressed to "My dear cousin Cee", from Dinah Prescott in Washington, DC. She writes in very small part: "I suppose luck has followed you as you are master of land... and prosper... you have not lost a bit of fondness for your relations... This is the first bit of silver I have seen since the war and I intend to get a piece of furniture with it... I must tell you of a misfortune in the family. On Christmas eve we had a visit from Aunt Bestsy's daughter Rose... she had been sick for a long while... after much suffering she died on the 2nd day of February and leaves me three helpless little children... give my love to Jane and the children and tell her not to let them forget us... "

3. An autograph letter signed, two pages, octavo, March 2, 1871, on House of Representatives letterhead, from C.G. George (?), possibly another relative, addressed to "William See & Sis. He writes, mostly phonetically: ... "I will in forme you that (?) is daede and want you all to knact greive remembering save to all my peapel... I want to see the day come sure it will be hear when your cousins freedom is good as any man... "

4. Partly printed document, one page, 8" x 7", October 1, 1881, Calvert, Texas, being a receipt on "Fuller & Connaughton stationary for shovels, nails and baking powder sold to Wm. See, marked paid.

         West Coast Gold Rush Preceding the Great Migration

      Buller district [New Zealand], 1867. Two manuscript partial letters revealing the hardships and mercurial nature of gold prospecting, as the writer partakes in the West Coast Gold Rush. 8vo. Two single leafs, each being two pages of a unique letter, each measuring approximately 11 x 18 cm. Containing early primary source accounts of colonial New Zealand. The writer is unidentified, though his letters reveal some details which might aid in further research. Previous to this mining expedition, he had lived in Melbourne, either owning or working as an employee at a shop. He subsequently opened up his own shop in the Buller district [circa 1864-1866], which he sold at a loss, to try his hand for the second time at gold mining. He set out for gold with another man, presumably a brother, who he refers to simply as Joey and who had also worked in a merchant shop prior to digging for gold. He mentions "knocking about the Colonies" for 14 years, suggesting that he left Great Britain around 1853, but refers to himself as not old, suggesting that he may be in his mid-thirties or forties. Evidently, he was closely acquainted to James Ure Russell, a skilled sea captain and surveyor from Dunedin. [James Ure Russell was a Master Mariner, who in 1867 suffered a bankruptcy. Captain James Ure Russell is listed as a marine surveyor, the 1884 volume of Stone's commercial, Municipal and General Directory... of Dunedin and Suburbs.] He also mentions Mrs. Cowan as recently married, this possibly being Elizabeth Jane Cowan, née Qualtrough, who in 1866 married William Andrew Cowan an immigrant from Ireland who fought in the Waikato war. The couple lived at Pakuranga near Auckland until at least 1870 when their son, the famous writer James Cowan was born. They subsequently settled in Kihikihi. New Zealand's West Coast was the second-richest gold-bearing area of New Zealand after Otago. The West Coast Gold Rush was in full force from 1864 to 1867, creating population in an area which had previously been visited by only a scant few Europeans. The letters are written at "Buller" on 20 August 1867 and 30 December 1867, respectively. During the period 1853 to 1876, Buller District was administered as part of the short-lived Nelson Province. Trying to remain hopeful, the gold prospector is on his second venture (at least), this time in the Buller Gorge located in the northwest of the South Island, as he writes of the challenges and the rapidly changing trends of gold fever, first to his brother and sister in Melbourne. Having ventured out with a brother or friend named Joey, the two men excavated one shaft together, then worked separate spots not far apart, Joey trying proceeding "north of the Buller." The writer and Joey pushed on, digging for a year, according to the letter of December 1867, to no avail. Joey contemplated becoming a sea merchant on a Sydney-California route, while the writer yearned to return to the recipient of the second letter, Mima [Wilhemima?], possibly his wife, before making any firm decisions about future endeavours. The writer would have been panning for gold, as his adventure pre-dates the discovery of gold in quartz deposits in the region. In spite of his conclusion, "... the west coast is done... I must go make a fresh start in the world for this country is done...," in the hills east of Reefton and also at Lyell, in the Buller District, three years later in 1870, gold-bearing quartz lodes were discovered. Prior to this, only alluvial gold had been worked on the West Coast. This correspondence also pre-dates the Great Migration to New Zealand, which would begin four years later in 1871 and continue until 1885. The first wave of immigrants consisted of over 2700 labourers hired by the engineering firm of John Brogden and Sons to work on railway contracts. British civilians typically had reservations of making the move, owing to the bad reputation of New Zealand's climate, its dangerous 'natives' and the high costs and perils of the journey. To attract more immigrants from the United Kingdom, in 1873 the fare of £5 per adult was waived and the voyage was free. The London office promoted widely with public speakers as well as recruiters who spoke directly to booksellers, grocers, schoolteachers, and the like. By 1873 there were 53 New Zealand government immigration agents in England, 78 in Scotland, and 46 in Ireland. Excerpts from the letters: 20 August 1867. "... we are, and have been so unfortunate... hardly a week in one Place running about after Rushes and all to no Purpose..." "... we put up a store which we sold at a loss and we have been digging ever since... sunk one shaft 131 feet slabbed from Top to Bottom... we were over it 14 weeks... very hard times..." "I did not think it possible I should have such bad luck... since I left that shop in Melbourne... Joey is in a store at Fifty shillings per week Board and lodging, small wages for this Country but that is better than digging... where one gets gold, 20 goes without it... the west coast is done... " "... I might never see Victoria again after 14 years knocking about the Colonies to be worse off or as bad as the day I landed..." "There is a great many going to Carpentaria or Burk Town from here and if ever I raise Fifty Pounds I will soon be amonst the crowd, it is a new Country... this Country is done... the fact of the matter is the west coast is done." "... the least of a rush of any sort excites the people here, you would not believe how many hard up people are on this coast but we must live in hope yet." "Mrs. Cowan is married..." "James Ure Russell seemed very anxious about Andrew. I told him you could not afford to keep him... his address is Ure c/o Grocus Princes St Dunedin." "We are very unsettled, we don't know how long we may remain in one place, we are in good health." 20 December 1867. "I took to digging and which was the ruin of me... alas I have taken to it again, I have been Digging over a year & I have not got one ounce of gold. I have been very near a good rise but I might as well have been a mile away." "Joey has been as badly off as myself, he was out Prospecting north of the Buller but without success... had not one cent... went cutting firewood for a few days to make a Pound or two to take him to Hokiliki [Hokitika]... determined to leave the Digging he thinks he will ship for Sydney & from there to California if he can get a ship at Hokiliki." "I will soon be after him... but not before I see you again, if he gets a billit in Hokiliki at anything he will stop." "I will Rise and Shine yet..." End Excerpts. New Zealand's West Coast was the second-richest gold-bearing area of New Zealand after Otago. The West Coast Gold Rush was in full force from 1864 to 1867, creating population in an area which had previously been visited by only a scant few Europeans. Gold was found near the Taramakau River in 1864 by two Maori, Ihaia Tainui and Haimona Taukau. In 1865-66 gold was discovered at Okarito, Bruce Bay (the scene of the Hunt's Duffer gold rush), also around Charleston and along the Grey River. Miners became attracted to the West Coast following the prolific successes of the Central Otago Gold Rush and the Victoria Gold Rush, both having nearly finished yielding. By the end of 1864 there were an estimated 1800 prospectors on the West Coast, with many in the Hokitika area. The town of Hokitika was founded on gold mining in 1864, and by 1866 was the most populous settlement in all of New Zealand with over 25,000 inhabitants. In 1867 the rush began to decline, although gold mining continued on the Coast for some years. While many gold rush towns like Okarito, at one time the largest town on the Coast, and Charlestown, almost vanished when the miners moved on, in the three year period, principal towns were firmly established on the West coast. From 'Gold Mining', from An Encyclopaedia of New Zealand, edited by A. H. McLintock, originally published in 1966. : The Nelson Province constituted in 1853 under the New Zealand Constitution Act 1852 and covered the entire upper South Island, including all of the present-day Buller, Kaikoura, Marlborough, Nelson, Tasman as well as the Grey District north of the Grey River and the Hurunui District north of the Hurunui River. It was abolished, along with all other provinces, in 1876. The West Coast of Nelson Province was neglected and scarcely known for almost 20 years after the settlement of Tasman Bay. It first excited curiosity late in 1859 when small samples of alluvial gold were discovered in the Buller Gorge by a survey party under J. Rochfort. Vigorous exploratory activity followed in 1860 when provincial government parties were sent to find routeways, map the Buller coalfield, report on timber and mineral resources, and examine potential sites for settlement. A few miners from Golden Bay came by sea to the Buller in 1861 and won small quantities of gold from the river beaches, while in 1863 the open country in the central Grey Valley was taken up in three pastoral runs. The main inrush of the mining population took place in the extreme south of the province in July 1865 when diggers crossed from what were then the west Canterbury goldfields, spread up the Grey Valley and its numerous tributary creeks, and within 12 months were prospecting in the Inangahua Valley. In the spring of 1866 a large rush occurred to the terraces and beaches of the Buller coast plain. Three bustling mining camps, Charleston, Brighton, and Addisons, each of more than 1,000 people, sprang up within a few months. Charleston, with 1,800 people at the 1867 census, was then the second largest urban centre in Nelson Province. Until 1870 only alluvial gold had been worked on the West Coast but in that year gold-bearing quartz lodes were discovered in the hills east of Reefton and at Lyell. A steady flow of population set in to the Reefton district from the declining alluvial diggings and, despite great difficulties presented by the terrain and bush cover, machinery was established on the lodes by 1873. Quartz mining was a more stable basis for settlement than alluvial gold working.

         Rime di Francesco Petrarca.

      Firenze: Successori le Monnier,, 1867. Con L'Interpretazione di Giacomo Leopardi. Migliorata in varj luoghi la lezione del testo, e aggiuntovi nuove osservazioni per cura dell'editore. Sesta impressione. Octavo. Contemporary brown half morocco (175 x 110 mm), spine gilt in compartments with titles direct, marbled sides with gilt rule, red speckled edges. Title page stub-mounted, presumably a cancel incorporating fictive impression statement to encourage sales. Spine darkened, extremities rubbed, endpapers spotted, crack to rear hinge, front blank with small splits at the top and bottom margin, good condition. Florentine edition of Petrarch's poetry inscribed by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1883) to his daughter, "Edith Longfellow with her father's love. January 30. 1876" on the first blank. The text is peppered with her own pencil annotations, in English and Italian. One such comments on Petrarch's line "in sul mio primo giovenile errore" with her wistful "22 years old" (though Edith had in fact just turned 23 at the time of the inscription). The inscription commemorates an education in and enjoyment of Italian poetry shared between father and daughter. After the tragic death of wife and mother Fanny, who accidentally set herself on fire and died of her burns in 1861, Longfellow found himself unable to compose poetry and turned his energies to the ambitious translation of Dante's Divina Commedia. Longfellow was the first American to translate the work, which was published in 1867. Edith was seven years old when her mother died, and her father found connection with his daughter through teaching her to read Italian poetry with him. This was described in the Biographical Sketch of Mrs Richard Henry Dana (Edith Longfellow) read by Mrs Mary Isabella Gozzaldi before the Cambridge Historical Society on 24 October 1916: "Before her marriage Edith Longfellow read Dante in the original with her father. This she carried out conscientiously for at least two years, enjoying the association with her father in his work, and he presented to her a volume of Petrarch inscribed in memory of those readings" (Cambridge Historical Society Publications XI, 55). Edith's husband Richard Dana was the author of the memoir Two Years Before the Mast (1840). The rear endpaper has a notecard tipped in with five lines of Petrarch written out in an unidentified hand. Poignantly, the lines concern the death of Petrarch's Laura.

Haven Emerson, dated "1 May 1867" (BAL lists three copies that have been seen inscribed on that date). Publisher's white linen "gift binding" with fern illustration gilt-stamped to front board and spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, dark brown-coated endpapers.

May-Day and Other Pieces is one of two small volumes of poetry published by this Transcendentalist writer. Like much of Emerson's work, the poems in this work center around the beauty of the natural world. Notably, although Emerson's body of work in poetry is small, he remains one of the major figures who influenced American poetry throughout the nineteenth century. Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

         Capture of the Mexican Steamers Marques of Havana & Genl. Miramon Admiral Marin Comdg. at Anton Lizardo, on the night of the 6th of March 1860, by the U. S. Ship Saratoga with detachments from the U. S. Ships Savannah & Preble, on board of her tow boats the American Steamers Wave and Indianola, T. Turner, U. S. Navy Commanding

      Boston: J.H. Bufford's Lith, 1867. First edition. Good, edges chipped not affecting image or text, uneven toning, a few dampstains, shadow line, still a sharp image.. 15 1/2 x 19 1/5 image and text on 17 x 21 inch sheet. The Battle of Anton Lizardo, off Veracruz, played an important role in ending Mexico's Reform War by denying the rebel conservatives much needed weaponry, and thus leading to a liberal victory. The USS Saratoga, formerly of the Far East Squadron under Perry, now commanded by Thomas Turner, had been cruising in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico during the Reform War. The two Mexican steamers had defected from the Mexican Navy in support of conservative rebels, and had been declared a pirate by the ruling liberal government, thus allowing the U.S. ships to attack, capturing the General Miramon and running the Marques of Havana aground after hand to hand combat. The original sketch was by Lt. Pierce Crosby (1824-1899) who would go on to become a rear Admiral. It was transferred to stone by John Perry Newell (1831-1898) who was known for his popular prints of ships and town views in the late 1850s and had gotten his start, as many artists did, studying lithography with John H. Bufford's firm. "The significance of John Henry Bufford (1810-70) in the history of the graphic arts in America is threefold. He was a prolific and successful lithographic artist, a major printer and publisher of prints, and an employer, colleague, and teacher of sorts of a number of notable American artists, Winslow Homer among them, who found in his shop the barebones equivalent of a school of art. Bufford was among the earliest recruits to the new medium of lithography in America, in 1829 joining the Pendleton brothers, who pioneered the process in Boston. He remained a lithographer for the rest of his life, first as an artist and then as a printer and publisher. The length of his intimate association with both the art and the business of the medium was matched (and exceeded) by only one other person who could trace his roots to the founding years of be 1820s: Nathaniel Currier ( 1813-88)," David Tatham: "Henry Bufford American Lithographer" in Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society. 86 (1): p.47. The image was printed after 1860 but before 1870, most likely in 1867 when Bufford was on his own after leaving off business with his sons (1866) but before joining them again (1868). Goodspeed's in 1933 called the print "Very rare. A copy listed in a New York auction catalogue of a few years ago was described as one of four known copies." They were most likely referring to the American Art Association auction, "American Prints," Apr. 7, 1926, specifically lot 158 which also served as the frontispiece,"Tradition that the stone was destroyed after four prints were made seems to be borne out by the fact that neither the History Section of the Navy Department, the Library of Congress nor the Naval History Society of New York has a copy." It also appeared at two Anderson Gallery Auctions, 1904 and 1907, which oddly enough, if they were all unique copies, would add to four. OCLC locates no copies, but there is one at the Mariners' Museum Library. AAS has a slightly smaller print of the Saratoga at anchor, after the battle, by the same artist, lithographer, and firm.

         Ninive et l'Assyrie.

      Paris: Imprimerie Imperiale -70-67 1867 - 3 volumes, folio (63 x 46 cm): (I) [a]2, A4, 1-276, (II) [a]2, 1-276, (III) [a]2, A4; (I) [iv], viii, 324 pp., (II) [iv], 323, [1 (blank)], (III) [iv], viii; (III) 87 plates including map, of which several coloured or tinted; tall set, complete with half titles. Light dust-stains and spotting to titles, occasional spotting, modern half calf gilt, a very handsome set. Only 200 copies printed. A remarkable record of the ruins of this area including the palace at Khorsabad. This monumental and splendid work was commissioned by the Emperor Napoleon III, from Place who was consul general. It is an Imperial work on the scale of the earlier Napoleonic publications. After Emile Botta's excavations at Khorsabad, the French largely neglected the site. British interest in Assyria was considerable and this led to the leaders of the Louvre to contact Place, at that time French Consul in Mosul, to resume excavations at the site. The British, particularly Rawlinson, were occupied with spectacular excavations at Kuyunjik, leaving Place to get on with his work largely unhindered by Anglo-French rivalries. Indeed Place and Rawlinson enjoyed a very good relationship, despite opposition from the British consul, Hormuzd Rassam. Place's finds were magnificent and would have overshadowed what Botta had already brought to the Louvre. They included reliefs, two gigantic bulls and other very large sculptures. He opened seventy-eight rooms at the palace and excavated more than 9000 square metres. However the transport of the discoveries was a disaster and nearly all were lost through shjipwreck and looting. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Autograph Letter Signed

      NJ: np, 1867. HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT LETTER BY GENERAL GRANT DEMONSTRATING HIS COMMITMENT TO PROTECTING THE FREED SLAVES AND THEIR RIGHT TO VOTE. In early May, 1867, "a vicious race riot in Memphis resulted in forty-eight blacks killed, seventy injured, and five black women raped in three days. On May 12, Major General George Stoneman reported to Grant from Memphis that the unrest was touched off when white policemen arrested two 'boisterous' black men and hauled them to the station house, whereupon black bystanders wounded a police office with a pistol shot. In retaliation, police gathered a mob of white citizens, some outfitted in Confederate uniforms, and 'proceeded to shoot, beat, and threaten'" every black person they met. "The next day, these white vigilantes set ablaze black schools, churches, and homes, one black witness alleging that white arsonists chanted calls for a 'white man's government' as they spread mayhem. 'Thank heaven the white race are once more rulers of Memphis,' the Memphis Avalanche editorialized with satisfaction."Grant empaneled a body to probe the Memphis riots," concluding that the civil authorities permitted the atrocities and that "the only protection afforded black citizens came from a small body of federal troops." Grant, as Lieutenant General, empowered the military to hold the civil authorities responsible until there was "satisfactory evidence that justice will be done."It was with this in mind - that the local authorities in Memphis could not be trusted to protect the black people - that Grant approached the 1867 election for Tennessee governor, slated for August 1. In February 1867, the Tennessee legislature passed a law granting newly freed black men the right to vote, a full three years before the Fifteenth Amendment was passed nationally, and the 1867 election for governor would be one of the first elections in the South where blacks would be allowed to vote.On July 22, 1867 - a week before the election - Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton sent a telegraph to Grant, reporting "Despatches have just been received from General Thomas strongly indicating that there is danger of a formidable and bloody riot at Memphis on the first of August, the day of election arising from an organization to prevent negroes voting and the determination of the colored men to vote... In my judgement the emergency is one demanding the most prompt efficient and discreet action on the part of the military authorities of the government, and that the national peace may depend on the manner in which it is treated."Grant responded with this letter from July 23 to General George Henry Thomas (received by Thomas as a telegram):July 23rd 1867 Maj. Gen. G.H. Thomas, Louisville Ky.Go to Memphis in person and remain there until after election. Let it be felt that where the Military is law must prevail and the guilty be punished. Do not wait for a riot to take place but use the Military vigorously to prevent one commencing.[signed] U.S. Grant GeneralGrant's plan to send the military worked and the election proceeded without any major violent incidents.As president, Grant continued his support of black suffrage. His "main mission was to settle unfinished business from the war by preserving the Union and safeguarding free slaves" and he reported to Congress that the "adoption of the 15th Amendment [giving black men the right to vote]... constitutes the most important event that has occurred, since the nation came into life."Sources: Ron Chernow, Grant; The Papers of Ulysses S. Grant Vol. 17.Note: As was standard for letters to be sent by telegram, "Cipher" is written at the top and "Copied" (in another hand) at the bottom. Grant wrote the letter and then handed it off to be coded and then sent ("copied") as a telegram.Long Branch, NJ: 1867. One 7.5x9.5 sheet of lined "Stetson House" letterhead. Beautifully framed (archivally and with museum glass) with an early photograph of Grant. Framed size: approx. 19x16 inches. Old tape stain to top of letterhead, otherwise fine with Grant's handwriting strong.A MAGNIFICENT PEICE OF HISTORY UNDERSCORING ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF GRANT'S LEGACY. Very Good.
