        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.

        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.

        Lett's Diary or Bills Due Book, and Almanack, for 1867, completed in Manuscript.

      Letts, Son , & Co. 1867 Printed text preceding and following the diary pages, one day per page. Original dark blue-black cloth, affected by damp cloth lifting, otherwise sound.This diary was used by Osman Latrobe of 45, later 7, Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London, primarily to record, in detail, experiments and trials with various improvements to his yacht, the 'Ross Winans' and another named the 'Walter T. Winans'. Latrobe, 1835-1915, had been a Confederate captain under General Lee in in the American Civil War, but soon after defeat in 1865 removed to London. In Britain he turned his attention to various improvements to ships. He witnessed the applications for patents by Thomas Winans of Baltimore and Louisa Winans of Clarges Street in 1866 for an improved steam engine and also couplings for propellor shafts, and in 1868 for an improved condenser. In this diary, Latrobe records the experiments, particularly with propellor blades, on nearly all pages up to 23rd August when the yacht is in dock. At the beginning of the diary, Latrobe provides a 'Synopsis of Communications' by telegraph to W.T. Winans concerning the trials. Latrobe was son of a railway engineer & lawyer, distinguishing himself in the Civil War. At the battle of Fredericksburg he 'enjoyed the sight of hundreds of dead Yankees.

[4], 12pp. Small errata slip laid in, correcting an omission to the fourth part of Article II, Section Four of the Constitution. Old tidelines along right margin, extending partly into the text, but all legible. Officers and committee members for the year 1867 are listed on an early page, and include A.C. Davis, President, E.W. Crittenden, First Vice President, Wm. Shipman, Second Vice President, and A.C.

Fancher of Wyckoff, N.J. dated in 1946. Fancher offers for sale a sepia picture of the Brooklyn Dodgers Base Ball Club and certificate of membership in the National Association of Base Ball Players dated Dec. 13, 1865 (not present here) to a Mrs. Blair, presumably Mrs. Natalie Knowlton Blair (1887-1951), a well-known collector of Americana. In addition he states: "I also have the little book of rules that goes with the picture," and on the verso he has sketched a pencil drawing of the title page, with an accompanying note, "The little book is in splendid condition and worth more than I ask for the picture."The constitution and by-laws laid out for the club included a list of fines for various offenses by club members, including "for rude, ungentlemanly, or discourteous language, manners or conduct at any meeting, game or reception of the Club, not more than one ($1.00) dollar for each offence." The designated "Nines" were to be prepared to play the games for which they were selected, and to be on time or face a fine. The team uniform was described as "a blue cap with the letter 'M' within a white star on top, a white jacket, and blue pants with white cord." The game of baseball increased in popularity in the 1850s, though it continued to be an 'amateur' sport for the next few years. According to Harold Seymour's Baseball: The Early Years, [NY: 1960], p.24: "Unquestionably, baseball was spreading rapidly in the New York area. In 1856 'Porter's Spirit of the Times' said that every available green plot within ten miles of the city was being used as a playing field. Brooklyn, already the 'city of churches,' was fast becoming the 'city of baseball clubs'... ." In 1867, the 10th Annual Convention of the National Association of Base Ball Players was held in Clinton, New York. Among the list of attendees were the Hon. A.C. Davis and A.C. Smith, of the Mohawk, Brooklyn.An article published in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle in March 1917 gives some particulars on the history of the Mohawk Base Ball Club: "On the Mohawk Club the late William C. Hudson, formerly of The Brooklyn Eagle, alternately played shortstop and pitched.... Left to right: Abe Silleck, first base; Sam Delisser, shortstop; A. Steiner, left field; Jacob Steiner, right field; Eugene, captain; Kelly, pitcher; Wash Weeks, catcher; William Forker, second base; Chauncey Ryder, center field. F. O'Connor, third base.... In 1867 ... O'Connor [State Senator Eugene F. O'Connor] became captain of the Mohawk Club of Brooklyn, which made the famous first 'shut-out' on the Fourth of July, in that year, in a game with the Earnests of Riverhead. L. I., the score being 62 to 0, in nine innings. Not an error was made in this game." That article included an interview with O'Connor where he reminisced about the club saying: "We played baseball in those days for the glory of it. None of us got a dollar for our services. We even bought our own uniforms and combined to buy our bats and balls. In the good old days we were up at daybreak practicing the game out at our grounds on Carroll Park, or on Fifth Avenue, before we had our breakfast or before going to business. Our team never lost a day from work, playing on Saturdays and holidays only, and we averaged about twelve match games a season. The Mohawks were no mean club and contested with such crack teams as the Atlantics, the Mutuals, the Athletics and the Eckfords." Hudson, Silleck, Steiner, O'Connor and Forker all are listed in this pamphlet as members of the Mohawk Base Ball Club. The pamphlet's printer W.A. Clayton appears as both the treasurer and a member of the finance committee for the club.Rare. Not in Grobani. Guide to Baseball Literature. Not in Smith Baseball: A Comprehensive Bibliography.

      1867 - From Rockhampton to Cape York, Northern Queensland.First edition. Photographic frontispiece, lithograph plate & a folding map. 8vo. Modern full calf, gilt, a little foxed. xii, 88pp. Brisbane, The Ingleton copy. The official account of one of the great Australian overland expeditions. In 1863, John Jardine was appointed Government Representative of a new settlement at Somerset at the tip of Cape York. His sons, Frank and Alexander, were entrusted with the task of transporting the necessary cattle for the settlement from Rockhampton. Setting out in 1864, their 1200 mile journey became the most important of all the Cape York expeditions. It took 10 months, much of which was spent being harassed by aggressive Aborigines, who pursued them over hundreds of miles. This culminated in a pitched battle on the Mitchell River. Despite the loss of 200 head of cattle, their achievement is undeniable. Wantrup, 185; Ferguson, 7747; Ingleton, 483. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Ouvrage orné de 8 planches lithographiées, dont 5 en couleur, et de figures dans le texte. Garrod (1819-1907) fit incontestablement autorité dans le domaine de la goutte ; on lui doit d'avoir mis en évidence la présence de dépôts uratiques dans les articulations touchées par la goutte ; de fait, il permit la distinction entre cette maladie et les autres formes d'arthrites. Le présent ouvrage a été traduit en français par Auguste Ollivier et annoté par Jean-Martin Charcot qui avait publié, cette même année, ses fameuses Leçons sur les maladies des vieillards, dans lesquelles il traitait abondamment du rhumatisme et de la goutte. Ex-libris manuscrit de Henry Liouville, médecin, professeur à la faculté de Paris (1875), et estampille annulée de la faculté catholique de Paris. Les feuillets de l'explication des planches (pp. XVII à XIX) ont été reliés par erreur après la page de titre. Percaline un peu fatiguée ; bon exemplaire néanmoins. Norman, n° 874.

        The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri (Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso)

      London: George Routledge & Sons, 1867. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. First British edition of Longfellow's translation, a complete set, duodecimo, 800 pp. (all three volumes). The Divine Comedy is often considered the masterpiece of Italian literature and one of the world's great classics. This set is the first British printing of Longfellow's translation of the poem, published very close to the first edition (Ticknor and Fields); according to the BAL, the text in Volume I may be earlier than the Boston printing. All three volumes are first printings, Volume I the first state with p. 118, note 116 reading "Di quegli antichi". Per Cynthia Haven's blog on the Stanford University web site: "one of the few truly successful English translations comes from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, a professor of Italian at Harvard and an acclaimed poet. He produced one of the first complete, and in many respects still the best, English translations of The Divine Comedy in 1867. It did not hurt that Longfellow had also experienced the kind of traumatic loss - the death of his young wife after her dress caught fire - that brought him closer to the melancholy spirit of Dante's writing, shaped by the lacerating exile from his beloved Florence in 1302. Longfellow succeeded in capturing the original brilliance of Dante's lines with a close, sometimes awkwardly literal translation that allows the Tuscan to shine through the English, as though this 'foreign' veneer were merely a protective layer added over the still-visible source". ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in dark green cloth, a gilt depiction of Dante on the front boards, gilt lettering and rules on the spines, light brown coated endpapers, arranged with the text first in each volume, followed by extensive notes and other matter, index at the end of Paradiso, gift inscription on the front free endpaper of Inferno in a flowing, vintage hand, vintage bookseller ticket (Robert Irvine, Kilmarnock) on the front pastedown of Inferno, prior owner name in pencil on the front pastedown of Paradiso; duodecimo size (approximately 7 5/8" by 5 1/8"), pagination: Volume I, [i-iii] iv-viii (lacking half-title), [1-3] 4-246, [i-ii, ads]; Volume II, [i-v] vi-viii, [247-249] 250-489, (490, blank) [i-iv, ads]; Volume III, [i-v] vi-viii, [491-493], 494-760, [i-x] ads. ***CONDITION: Overall the set is very good, with the bindings clean, all three volumes have strong, square text blocks with solid hinges, the interiors are very lightly toned and free of foxing, other than the gift inscription and prior owner name mentioned above, the set is free of prior owner markings. Inferno was acquired by us separately from the other two volumes, it shows some wear to the head and tail of the spine and the upper part of the front joint, and the leaf for pp. 123-124 was roughly opened, with some loss to the fore-edge margin (not affecting text); Purgatorio also has some wear to the head and tail of the spine, some rippling to the cloth on the front board (but no evidence of damp-stain), a small bump to the bottom edge of the front board and evidence of removal of a small plate on the rear pastedown; we had a professional restorer repair the front hinge and joint of Paradiso, and re-sew the signatures; all three volumes show slight rubbing to the corners. Even with their aggregate minor faults this set is overall very good, a solid, eminently respectable set of Longfellow's highly regarded translation. ***CITATION: BAL 12146. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the Abe standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

H. Bresslau, who changed the title to "The Jewish Chronicle and Hebrew Observer. " From Jan. 12, 1855, A. Benisch assumed the editorship, which he retained till April 2, 1869, when Michael Henry took charge of the paper until his death" (JE, 1905) . This run from the final 2 years of the American Civil War, includes numerous ads and announcements from the period, indicating deaths, weddings, and celebrations of all kinds, from across the UK, the British Empire, English Speaking Jewry and, indeed, the entire world. Anniversary dinners and events often list participants, which sometimes read like who's who's of Anglo-jewry of the period, and at other times mention names from the far reaches of the British Empire. Too many various reports, letters, discussions, and ads to describe, SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Great Britain -- Newspapers. First and final leaves show exposure wear, as expected, with corner curling to last 20 issues and edgewear generally not extending into the text. Mid-19th century paper has held up well, Good solid condition overall. Scarce to come up in the trade. (br-11-4)

        Rime di Francesco Petrarca con l'Interpretazione di Giacomo Leopardi

      Florence: Successori le Monnier, 1867. Nineteenth-century Florentine edition of Petrarch's poetry, presented by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to his daughter Edith to commemorate their shared love of Italian literature: "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 penciled notes reflect a careful reading of Petrarch's text. She had just turned 23 when she received this book; next to the celebrated opening of the Canzoniere, when Petrarch invokes "mio primo giovenile errore" ("my first errant youthful days"), her pencil notation reads: "22 years old." A later note references Petrarch's reading of Dante, while another expands a reference to Boccaccio's Decameron. Tipped onto the final leaf is a card with five transcribed lines from Trionfo della Divinità concerning the death of Petrarch's Laura: "Beatissima lei che Morte ancise / Assai di qua dal natural Confine!" ("happiest is she death has snatched away / well before the natural bound of life"). In 1861, when Edith was seven years old, her mother Fanny accidentally set herself on fire and died of her burns. Longfellow found himself unable to write poetry after his wife's death, turning instead to his ambitious translation of Dante, a project which prepared the way for his Italian study with Edith and the gift of this volume. Text in Italian. A poignant family and literary association copy. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter brown sheep over marbled boards, borders ruled in gilt, raised bands double-ruled in gilt, spine compartments lettered and ornamented in gilt, mauve endpapers. Index at rear. Presentation inscription on second fly leaf: "Edith Longfellow / with her father's love. / January 30. 1876." Pencil notes throughout text, notecard tipped onto recto of final free endpaper with five lines of Petrarch written in ink. Light wear to binding, joints rubbed, offsetting and spotting to endpapers.

        ELSIE DINSMORE

      [FINLEY,MARTHA]. ELSIE DINSMORE by Martha Farquharson. NY: M.W. Dodd 1867. 12mo (4 5/8 x 6 7/8"), 288p., light purple embossed cloth, gilt decorative spine, previous owner's attractive gilt and leather book plate, slight soil on 1 page, a Fine copy in a custom leather backed box. 1st edition of the first book about Elsie Dinsmore whose series eventually ran up to 28 volumes. Despite some religious overtones and suggestions about the father's impropiety, the Elsie Dinsmore series became immensely popular. It is suggested that Elsie's longevity and success inspired Edward Stratemeyer to create his long living series including Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys and many others. In selecting this title for Peter Parley to Penrod, a bibliography of the best children's books, the bibliographer Jacob Blanck notes that he had seen only 2 copies of the first edition (p.26). Today it is rare, and outstanding copies like this can't be found.

A classic on angling. "Francis formulated the case for the dry fly more sensibly than it was to be stated again for the next forty years, saying "Now, there are two ways of fly-fishing, viz, with the dry fly and with the wet fly. Some fishermen always use one plan, others almost as pertinaciously use the other. To use either of them invariably is wrong. Sometimes the one will be found to kill fast and sometimes the other. I fine waters, particularly in the southern countries, where fly-fishing is certainly more of a systematic art than is in the north, the dry fly is greatly used, and with very deadly effect at times. In very calm, bright and still weather, when a wet fly will often be useless, the dry fly will be taken most confidingly. In rough windy weather the wet fly preferable,." - Gingrich. Fishing in Print., p200. .

        Melbourne Wine Merchants Price List, printed for the Paris Universal Exhibition

      London: Grant & Co, 1867. Ephemera. Very good condition. A lavishly gilt embellished wine list produced by the first large scale catering business in the world, Spiers & Pond, which was founded in Melbourne and which sponsored the first cricket test match in Australia. Felix Spiers (1832 - 1911) and Christopher Pond (1826 - 1881), two British emigrants attracted by the gold rush, were involved in a wide range of successful undertakings in Melbourne: they founded restaurants, were organizers of the first balloon flight in the country, and were the first commercial sponsors of cricket in Australia. In 1861 they sponsored the first ever tour of an English national cricket team, an event which is seen as igniting the Australian passion for the game. This project was undertaken following an unsuccessful bid to Charles Dickens for a lecture tour of Australia. The tour was named 'The Eleven of All England'. The first game was played in early 1862 and was a great financial success for Spiers & Pond. The partners returned to London in 1863 where they began a catering business for railway passengers. Spiers & Pond established concessions at several Metropolitan Railway stations and won contracts for restaurants at railway stations throughout the city. They eventually held food contracts for all the major railway lines, and managed 21 bars, which allowed them to claim to be the first to popularize low cost wine in Britain. They ran hotels and restaurants including the Gaiety restaurant and the Criterion. This wine price list is a 3 fold card with much gold gilt decoration and ornate typography on one side, the text printed in red, green and blue. The text at the front cover of the card reads, "Spiers & Pond [of] London, Paris & Birmingham, formerly of Australia. Wine Merchants, Refreshment Contractors. Contractors in England to the London, Chatham Dover Railway, Metropolitan System of Railways, Royal Italian Opera Covent Garden, and the Royal Horticultural Gardens. Proprietors of the Exchange Tavern & Restaurant Birmingham, Hall by the Sea Margate. Central offices in London, 38 Bridge Street". The b&w wine list is printed on the verso. The middle panel includes an Australian sparkling wine under "Moselles & Hocks". 9 3/4 x 4 3/4"
