        Original sketches made on board Edgar E. Holley's Evelyn during a New York Yacht Club cruise in 1867

      New York: , c.1867. Quarto (284 × 219 mm). Later red morocco by C. Walters, title gilt to the spine and upper board, all edges gilt, grey marl endpapers. 36 pen and ink drawings, and 3 with watercolour and wash, on highly-polished wove paper with a pale blueish tone. Slightly rubbed at the extremities, front joint more so and starting towards the tail, headcap chipped, tan-burn to the free endpapers from the turn-ins, slight yellowing at the margins, overall very good. These sketches were drawn by Thomas Worth who was on board the yacht Evelyn at the time she made the cruise with the New York Yacht Club about 1867. Those on board were E.E., Holley owner, Mr. Amos Stellenwerf, Mr. Dan Slote, Mr. Chas. Van Zant, and the Artist. The accompanying sketches were actual incidents of the cruise. Three sketches are scenes in the Great South Bay L[ong] I[sland] on board the Evelyn." Superbly rendered and witty visual record of the misadventures of a party of New Yorkers afloat with the New York Yacht Club on their annual competitive cruise, documenting the moment when the old keen, but gentlemanly, spirit of competition began to shade over into more intense, professionalized rivalries. Our yachtsmen seem to be very much of the old school, where a plentiful supply of good liquor - Holley breakfasts on gin and tansy - and good fellowship are essential to the enterprise. The "skipper", Edgar E. Holley, was secretary and director of a number of insurance companies, described on his death in 1887 by the London American Register as "a veteran fireman, and one of the most popular men in the fire insurance interests"; among his guests were Amos Gardener Stellenwerf, proprietor of the Lake House Hotel, a resort at East Islip, Long Island, who was also Worth's brother-in-law; and Dan Slote, a New York stationery manufacturer, who was Mark Twain's roommate in the Quaker City on the voyage which formed the basis of Innocents Abroad, and with whom Twain struck up a friendship until a serious - seemingly inevitable - falling out over some business ventures into which he had plunged "with his customary enthusiasm", only to find himself being "bled" by Slote (see Mark Twain's Notebooks & Journals, II, 1877-83, pp.352-3). Other yachting notables who participated in the cruise, and receive humorous mentions are James Gordon "Jim" Bennett, at the time Commodore of the NYYC, and his schooner yacht Henrietta, in which Bennett had just won the first recorded transatlantic yacht race initiating the new era of escalating personal feuds, and shipyard experimentation in the search of competitive advancement; shipbuilder and inventor Richard F. Loper and his yacht Palmer, during the Civil War Loper had been appointed assistant agent to the War Department with responsibility for procuring troop transports; and Capt. Henry Haff, captain for Thomas W. Lawson, controversial Boston "copper baron" and stockbroker, and historian of the America's Cup. Little known today, Thomas B. Worth (1834-1917) was one of America's most prolific comic illustrators of the nineteenth century, "a comic and genre artist, he sold his first comic sketch to Nathaniel Currier in 1855, and later became one of the most popular of the artists whose work was lithographed by Currier & Ives" (Groce & Wallace, Who Was Who in American Art). For them he specialised in equestrian and other sporting scenes, but was also behind the publisher's extraordinarily successful, and extraordinarily racist, "Darktown" series, one of these lithographs of crude African-American stereotypes reputedly selling 73,000 copies. He was never an full-time employee of Currier & Ives, also publishing in various of Harper's titles - the masthead of Harper's Weekly is signed with his "TW" monogram - and many of the plethora of popular humorous and topical magazines of the time, such as Puck, and Frank Tousey's Judge, also providing the illustrations for Harper's Household Edition of Dickens's Old Curiosity Shop. Worth was strictly a commercial artist, his work produced on commission from publishers, and consequently his original artwork is rarely encountered on the market, when it does appear it is keenly contested for. This is an exceptional piece, more or less representing the substance for an illustrated book or series of journal articles. While Worth worked mainly in a humorous vein, these drawings, while they are very much within that genre, also offer highly detailed images of the yacht Evelyn, on deck, below deck, and at sea, and some very lively and only lightly caricatured portraits of our yachtsmen providing a spirited visual record of the yachting world in a bygone era.

        Robert E. Lee ALS [Confederate Bonds] [Civil War Interest]

      Lexington, VA: Robert E. Lee, 1867. 1st Edition. Other Other. Very Good. (Autographed Documents & Letters, Civil War) Lengthy letter written and signed by Robert E. Lee with a reference to Confederate bonds. Dated March 2, 1867. One sheet with writing on front and back. Slight toning to edges. Wear to folds. Very Good condition overall. R. A. Lancasterâ€?"a banker and broker of Richmond, Va.â€?"was the head of the banking house of R. A. Lancaster & Sons. He was among the first Southerners to establish themselves in business in New York after the Civil War; however, he still maintained his connection with the South with the banking house in Richmond. Transcription: Lexington, VA: 2 March, 1867 My dear Sir I rec’d this and your letter of the 28th ultimo: enclosing papers for collection of Ohio State certificates for my signature. I have signed the papers and herewith return them. I did not fill the dates, but if they should be filled the day my signature was attached, please date them 2 March, ’67. I do not think it worth while to write to my brother for his affidavit as to the loss of the certificates, for he says he has no recollection of having ever seen them. Mr. Macfarland he thinks has compounded them with some Confederate bonds he gave him for me. He says if he had ever rec’d them he would have them now. But he has searched and can find neither trace or memorandum of them. I am very much obliged to you for your offer to write in the bond as my sureties. I hope there will be no wish in it, for if the original bonds ever reach my hands, I shall send them to the Commissioners of Ohio, and I am sure no one can produce a handful of them from me to anyone else. I shall therefore be obliged to you to write in the bond. When you collect the money, please pay all expenses you have incurred, place the balance to my credit in your books and inform me of the amt. Very truly yours, R. E. Lee Mr. R. A. Lancaster

        Autograph Letter, signed ("HW Beecher")

      [New York?], n.d. 8vo. 2 pp., on two panels (plus postscript) of a folded quarto lettersheet, in ink. Old folds, with mends to tears along center fold and horizontal folds in blank panel (not affecting text), but near very good, in linen folding cloth slipcase . An amusing letter from the highly popular and controversial minister, novelist and reformer, to his good friend - or, as recent scholarship would have it, his very intimate friend - Chloe Beach, wife of Moses Beach, owner of the NEW YORK SUN. Beecher writes in such a fashion as to imply clearly that he is soliciting a dinner invitation: "My Dear Mrs. Beach - Our larder is given out: - our tea used up - milk gone, bread scanty, sweetmeats passed away, and all of us are facing the probability of starvation tonight. Do you know of any place where we could get a loan of cold victuals? - or borrow some crackers, or even get a chance to come and eat a little? I would not trouble you but, you have the reputation of being charitable; and really, we are reduced to that condition of suffering that if you do not take us in, - why - we will go somewhere else. I am your friend bowed down with trouble. H.W. Beecher - P.S. We are willing to pay." It was through the Beach family, in 1867, that Beecher first connected with his ardent supporter, Samuel Clemens, and a case has been put forward (see Applegate, THE MOST FAMOUS MAN IN AMERICA: THE BIOGRAPHY OF HENRY WARD BEECHER, pp. 371-2) that in January of the same year Chloe Beach gave birth to a daughter by Henry W. Beecher. Accompanied by a carte de visite of Beecher, captioned in ink and pencil on recto and verso, and trimmed at the top corners. While ordinary Beecher letters are not uncommon, the present letter enjoys an out of the ordinary context

        Correspondence respecting the recent Fenian aggression upon Canada. Presented to both Houses of Parliament by Command of Her Majesty February 1867

      London: HMSO, printed by Harrison and Sons, 1867. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine. Folio 8" x 12.5", [6], [1]-84pp, [2]. Attractive recent blue cloth binding. . British Parliamentary Paper . Fenian invasion of 1866. This is the major Parliamentary Paper on the Fenian raids. Account of trials. Despatches from the Governor-General of Canada and the Secretary of State for Great Britain. Tables. Full page map showing the site of battle just north of Ridgeway. A couple of pages first and last, with very minor foxing, otherwise vety clean, near fine copy. "The Battle of Ridgeway (sometimes referred to as the Battle of Lime Ridge or Limestone Ridge) was fought in the vicinity of the town of Fort Erie across the Niagara River from Buffalo, NY near the village of Ridgeway, Canada West, currently Ontario, Canada on June 2, 1866, between Canadian troops and an irregular army of Irish-American invaders, the Fenians. It was the largest engagement of the Fenian Raids, the first modern industrial-era battle to be fought by Canadians and the first to be fought only by Canadian troops and led exclusively by Canadian officers. The very low casualty figures make this an interesting battle for proponents of theories about soldier's reluctance to shoot to kill, but could also be accounted for by the fact that the Fenians had deployed only their skirmishers in an attempt to lure the Canadians towards their main force which did not advance until the last minutes of the battle when they launched a bayonet attack that broke Canadian lines. Sometimes the "Battle of Ridgeway" includes the Battle of Fort Erie (1866) fought several hours later as the victorious Fenians returned to Fort Erie, Ontario. Except for one British private, Dennis Sullivan, at Fort Erie, captured and parolled by the Fenians the day before, no British military personnel were present at the battles at Limestone Ridge or at Fort Erie.[4] The battlefield was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1921 and is the last battle fought in the Province of Ontario against a foreign invasion." quoted from Wikipedia.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Buenos Aires, 24. III. 1867.. 3 S., 8°.. An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - Burmeister "arbeitete als Geograph, Geologe, Botaniker, Ornithologe, Meeresbiologe, Entomologe, Zoologe, Paläontologe und Meteorologe und veröffentlichte fast 300 wissenschaftliche Arbeiten. Er begründete die umfangreiche Sammlung der Zoologischen Fakultät der Universität Halle-Wittenberg. In Argentinien erwarb er sich Anerkennung und einen ähnlichen Ruf wie Alexander von Humboldt, mit dem er befreundet war. Er war in Buenos Aires Direktor des Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales Bernardino Rivadavia'" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. -

        Soemmerring's Pheasant

      ?A very detailed hand-colored natural history lithograph by Joseph Wolf (German-English, 1820-1899) from his book "Zoological Sketches", which was compiled for the Zoological Society of London and printed in London: by Henry Graves & Company in 1867. Overall this print measures 13 ?" x 19", the lithograph is tipped into the larger paper which includes a boarder and lettering.Sir Edwin Landseer described Joseph Wolf as ?...without exception the best all-round animal painter who ever lived.? Born and educated in Prussia, Wolf moved to London in 1848 to pursue a growing number of commissions to illustrate natural history works. He quickly became the foremost animal illustrator in Britain. Among his achievements were the illustrations he produced for Gould?s ?The Birds of Great Britain?(1862-1873) and the romantic subjects he drew for ?The Life and Habits of Wild Animals? (1873). Wolf did not wish to be categorized as a scientific illustrator, preferring to create complete and naturalistic compositions, which conveyed a sense of drama and mystery. Rather than show his subjects isolated from their environment, Wolf integrated them into a natural setting and portrayed them involved in dramatic action.In 1852, the British Zoological Society commissioned Wolf to complete several watercolors for its Zoological Sketches published in parts between 1856 and 1867. P.L. Sclater, the secretary of the society, noted in the publication?s preface, ?the Council was fortunate enough to secure the services of Mr Joseph Wolf, who may be fairly said to stand alone in intimate knowledge of the habits and forms of Mammals and Birds.? By this stage in his career, Wolf?s works were in considerable demand both in their own right and as illustrations to books and journals. ?From 1859 to 1869 Wolf was the regular artist for Ibis, the journal of the Zoological Society, and his work was also reproduced in the Illustrated London News, Once a Week, The Leisure Hour, The Sunday at Home, and The Graphic. Unfortunately, during the 1870s, Wolf was increasingly hindered by the onset of chronic rheumatism, which gradually curtailed his work, but he lived on into his eightieth year and died in London surrounded by his pet birds and held in high popular esteem. ?More than three-quarters of a century later his plates are regarded as among the finest productions of the great period of the illustrated book, while his oil paintings, watercolors and drawings are prized by museums and collectors alike.Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing and staining throughout margins.?
