        Traite des Matieres Colorantes

      1867. SCHUTZENBERGER, Paul. Traité des matières colorantes. Two volumes. xi, 544, [1], 647, [1] pp. With 74 tipped-in colored fabric samples, text figures. 8vo., 208 x 130 mm, bound in contemporary blue half leather over boards, gilt spine. Paris: Victor Masson et fils, 1867. |~||~||~||~| First and Only Edition. This early treatise by an important 19th-century chemist deals extensively with colouring matters and their application to dyeing, as well as with textile fibers and their treatment. Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of the book is the presence of seventy-four actual colored fabric samples, employed by the author to illustrate his points. The importance of this publication is borne out in a testimonial delivered on the occasion of the centenary of Schützenberger's birth, celebrated in 1929: "This remarkable work, still a classic even today, has rendered inappreciable service to colorists of the entire world. It was the most complete collection of information then available on dyes and their application to textiles." (Centenaire Paul Schutzenberger p. 74). Schützenberger (1829-1897) taught chemistry at Mulhouse before moving to Paris in 1865, where he became Director of the Ecole Municipale de Physique et Chemie in 1882. He was elected to the French Academy of Sciences in 1888. Perhaps his greatest achievement was the discovery of hydrosulphurous acid. Occasional browning, but otherwise in excellent condition. Poggendorff III, 1217. Centenaire Paul Schutzenberger (Paris, 1931).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Alexander W. Thayer").

      Triest, 5. VIII. 1867.. 3 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 4to. Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf des "Consulate of the United States of America".. "My dear Gräfin, I received your letter yesterday, and am pleased, anew, at the confidence you repose in me, in trusting Albert to my care. Mrs. Mayer will grant the room, but as there is now no table (no 'familien-essen') kept by her, and as I dine privatim, I must introduce Albert for his dinner to the very good restaurant, where, for some time, I was a regular guest. As many of his hours, as he desires, he will pass in my rooms with my books. I am only sorry that there is no pianoforte in the house. Music he will have little or none; but he can have saltwater bathing, which is a sort of music for the skin. I go from my bed to the water, and, thence, to Breakfast, and, I think, he would enjoy the same. If he can swim, he can go into the open water, if not he can bathe in the exclusive little bathrooms. I will do the best I can to have him enjoy himself - but, alas! a man of my age is not the most pleasant of companions for a boy of 16. You know that there are few persons of his rank here, - at all events - few are among my friends; but some of the 'Bürgerlichen' are very pleasant people, and perhaps we can find pleasant occupation for an evening or two with some of them [...]". - Spuren alter Faltung und Montagespur am Gegenblatt verso; kl. Randläsur am ersten Blatt (ohne Textberührung). - Alexander Wheelock Thayer, zunächst Bibliothekar an der Harvard Law School, wechselte 1862 in den diplomatischen Dienst und diente von 1865 bis 1882 als amerikanischer Konsul in Triest; das Amt sicherte ihm die wirtschaftliche Basis für seine Beethovenstudien. Seine monumentale Beethoven-Biographie, ein Meilenstein der Forschung, war bei seinem Tode erst in drei Bänden (1866-79) veröffentlicht; die restlichen beiden Bände gab Hugo Riemann posthum heraus.

      Albany, New York: [no publisher]. 1867. Broadside. Approximately 7.25" x 10.75". Margins a little irregularly trimmed, removed from a scrapbook or backer, a bit wrinkled, and with a small marginal tear that is threatening to become a chip, a good only copy. A political call to workingmen and a sworn statement from two union members that the Republican candidate for County Sheriff, I.N. Keeler, when approached to take tickets for a Printers' Union Excursion "emphatically declined to do so, and SHAKING HIS HEAD AS IF IN CONTEMPT OF THE ENTERPRISE, proclaimed that he was 'opposed to all Trades' Unions.'" The broadside urges that "It is the duty of every Mechanic and Workingman to proclaim at the Ballot Box whether any candidate for position in this County shall declare himself opposed to you and not receive a rebuke worthy of you." .

The first several pages of the log describe the "Wishart"'s ill-fated trip sailing for New York from the "Pamunk[e]y River", VA. At 8 p.m. on December 17, 1887, a gale and heavy winds caused the vessel to "labor heavily" off Barnegat Light (NJ) and at 10:30, she had "sprung a leak. Pumps kept going. At 11:30 head four feet of water in the hold and at 12 m. [sic] vessel was hove on her beam ends when the greater part of deck load of [wooden] ties washed overboard..." On the next day, the men "kept her before the gale under two reefed mainsail. Water increasing in the vessel, had to throw balance of deck load about 300 ties overboard to lighten her." Just before this jettisoning, the "sea broke over quarter smashing yawl boat, and carrying it and starboard davit and attachments away, which were lost." The main gaff also broke, and "we were blown east of the Gulf Stream three times…" By December 29, the vessel heads for Norfolk, VA and arrives there January 3, 1888. The next several pages of the book are titled "Results of Survey Made at Norfolk, Virginia, January 9th, 1888, by Silas H. Dodd and Jos. H. Gaskell, Shipmaster, and Richard Curtis, marine surveyor". They found "2 feet of water in the hold" but that the vessel was "leaking very little" once it was pumped out. There is an extensive list of damages, however, including: "end of bowsprit split…main jib gone…some topmast rigging carried away and foretopmast sprung, foresail carried away…main rigging….carried away…portion of sail and waist gone…all cooking utensils, main mast mast hoops gone, companion doors smashed," etc., etc. This portion concludes with "We recommend" that all the listed damages be repaired and that the estimated value of the vessel "in her present disabled condition" is no more than $1,000. A "Report Survey" follows, made at Norfolk on February 23, 1888, by Richard Curtis and Jos. T. Marshall, including a long list of repairs made. This section concludes saying "We further find the vessel in a seaworthy condition and recommend that she proceed on her voyage." There follows a 38-page list of "Bills and Expenses", for the survey, tug towing, and all the repair work, including the names of the merchants/craftsmen owed and paid. The final four pages address "Apportionment of General Cargo", including values of "freight and cargo," amounts due "owners on underwriters of cargo", etc. Signed July 4, 1888, by James Gaskill, coadjustor. The American schooner "L.Q.C. Wishart" was apparently named after Dr. L.Q.C. Wishart, the Philadelphia doctor who dreamed up "Pine Tree Tar Cordial" in 1859, "Dr. Wishart's Great American Dyspepsia Pills" in 1861, and "Dr. Wishart's Worm Sugar Drops" in 1865. A wooden three-master, the "Wishart" was built in 1867, and the first of the logs starts with her first voyage. Taken together, the three logs offer a detailed picture of the travels, destinations, types of cargo carried, costs and moneys made, and even details on damage repairs involved in the operation of this American transport ship over more than 20 years. The "Wishart" finally was wrecked off Little Egg Harbor (NJ) in December, 1910, but the third volume of logs presages this event, offering a description of the results of a crippling storm at sea and the subsequent repairs required and costs accrued in order to make the vessel seaworthy once more.

        The Claverings

      London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1867. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing of this great Trollope novel, bound in 3/4 blue leather with coordinated blue cloth, top edge of the closed page blocks gilded (upper leading board corners rubbed through, lower leading board corners more mildly rubbed, scattered mild foxing to the page margins) with sixteen wood-engraved plates by H. Harral after M. Ellen Edwards, including a frontispiece in each volume (with one exception, the internal plates lack the delicate tissue guards -- which are present to the frontispiece of each Volume). The work was first published in the Cornhill magazine from from February, 1866 to May, 1867 and was then published in these two volumes on April 20, 1867. With respect to this wonderful novel, Sadleir wrote: "The Claverings" is the best wrought of the novels designed for the Cornhill, and as surely conceived as any book he ever wrote." In the novel, Harry Clavering is jilted by the beautiful Julia Brabazon who instead elects to marry the wealthy Lord Ongar. Following an unhappy year of marriage, Lord Ongar dies and the wealthy widow returns to London where Harry has engaged himself to the sweet, much less worldly, and certainly not wealthy, Florence Burton. Rather than tell her of his engagement, Harry conveniently, and wrongly, "assumes" that the now Lady Ongar has herself heard of it. However, after again becoming part of her circle, Harry finds his engagement to be unknown to Lady Ongar and discovers that she, his first love and now a wealthy widow, sees him as a suitor and quite earnestly desires to marry him. Copies of The Claverings seem to grow increasingly scarce. A Very Good copy of one of Trollope's best works.

        New Hampshire Ridicules South Carolina's Attempts to Game the System After Rejecting the 14th Amendment

      1867 - Broadside. "Part of a Speech of the N. H. "Champion of Democracy" on the Negro Question," no place, [New Hampshire], c. 1867. 1 p., 9 1/2 x 13 1/2 in. Excerpt"New Hampshire and South Carolina.There are more than three hundred thousand white people in New Hampshire. In South Carolina, there are less than three hundred thousand whites, and more than four hundred thousand negroes. If the negroes are not counted, there are more people in New Hampshire than in South Carolina. If the negroes are counted, there are more than twice as many people in South Carolina as in New Hampshire But for the convenience of round numbers, call New Hampshire three hundred thousand (300,000) whites, and call South Carolina three hundred thousand (300,000) whites and three hundred thousand (300,000) negroes.Our 300,000 white people in New Hampshire have 3 Representatives, and the 300,000 white people in South Carolina ought to have 3 Representatives, and no more. But if the whites in South Carolina count the 300,000 negroes, they have 600,000 whites and negroes together. If they count the negroes, they double their own "numbers, and get 6 Members of Congress."Historical BackgroundAfter the Civil War, many southern states began passing black codes that restricted freedom of movement, labor, and access to firearms and the courts. In response to this attempt at returning the freedmen to a state of slavery, Congress proposed a 14th amendment to the Constitution that that would guarantee citizenship, due process, and equal protection to the freedmen and women.Once Andrew Johnson won reelection in 1866, he actively encouraged the southern states to reject the 14th Amendment. With the exception of Tennessee, all followed his advice. Despite having rejected the amendment, South Carolina, among other states, wanted the benefit of counting the population of freedmen and women in its entirety in their censuses for Congressional representation. This New Hampshire Republican tirade vilifies the South Carolina position as wanting to have it both ways-counting the freedmen and women for representation while simultaneously denying them the right to vote, equal protection, and other civil rights.The speaker argues that without black voters, South Carolina would enjoy twice the Congressional Representation of New Hampshire despite having a similar-sized white population., thus handing the "Rebels" a victory in Congress that they could not win on the battlefield. Instead,the speaker forcefully argues that instead of Constitutional benefits for treason, "Traitors, to be sure, have no Constitutional rights, except to be hung."

        "Parisienne". Manette Salomon, im Dunklen in großer Abendrobe vor einem Pariser Cafe stehend.

      . Radierung und Vernis mou, Paris 1867, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: Arches. 65:42 cm. _ Mit Widmung "A MMrs Edmond & Jules de Goncourt" in der Platte. Papier insgesamt gebräunt und mit Nagellöchern in den äußeren seitlichen Rändern, die von einer alten Montierung auf eine Holzplatte herrühren. Literatur: Exsteens 848. Dieses mondäne Frauenbildnis ist erschienen aus Anlaß der Veröffentlichung des Romans der Brüder Goncourt "Manette Salomon, 1867", der die Geschichte einer Frau im Pariser Künstlermilieu der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts schildert.. Rops war einer der bedeutendsten Graphiker und Illustratoren seiner Zeit. Nach einer Erziehung durch Privatlehrer ging der Sohn eines Textilfabrikanten an das Jesuitenkolleg in Namur. 1849 wurde er vom Kolleg verwiesen, in diesem Jahr verstarb sein Vater, ging dann an das Königliche Athenäum in Namur, schrieb sich jedoch auch gegen den Willen seines später verhaßten Vormunds an der dortigen Academie des Beaux-Arts ein, wo er Aktkurse besuchte. 1853 setzte er sein Studium an der Universität in Brüssel fort, wo er zudem das freie Atelier Saint-Luc besuchte. Ab 1856 gründete er zusammen mit seinem Freund Ch. de Coster (1827-1879) die Zeitschrift L'Uylenspiegel, journal des debats litteraires et artistiques, für die er bis 1857 Illustrationen schuf, meist Karikaturen. Nach der Verheiratung mit Charlotte Polet de Faveaux, der Tochter des Gerichtspräsidenten von Namur, lebte er abwechselnd in seiner Geburtsstadt und im Sommer auf Schloß Thozee bei Mettet, wo ihn auch zahlreiche Künstlerfreunde besuchten; später kamen noch Paris und Brüssel als ständig wechselnde Aufenthaltsorte hinzu. 1868 war er Mitbegründer der "Societe des Beaux Arts". 1869 verliebte er sich in die Schwestern Leontine und Aurelie Duluc, zwei junge Modeschöpferinnen, mit denen er ab 1874 in Paris zusammenlebte und auch Kinder hatte. Reisen unternahm er in den nächsten Jahren an die Nordsee, nach Skandinavien, Ungarn und Spanien, in die Vereinigten Staaten und nach Nordafrika. 1888 wurde ihm der Orden der französischen Ehrenlegion verliehen. Rops hatte vor allem großen Erfolg als Illustrator, zuerst mit den Werken de Costers, dann arbeitete er auch für Baudelaire, mit dem er sich befreundete, sowie für J. Barbey d'Aurevilly, St. Mallarme, P. Verlaine, J. Peladan u.a.

        Sequoia Wellingtonia. The Two Guardsmen

      London & Edinburgh, 1867. Hand-coloured lithograph. Sheet size: 22 1/4 x 16 3/4 inches. A very fine plate from Ravenscroft's 'The Pinetum Britannicum. A Descriptive Account of Hardy Coniferous Trees' Ravenscroft's work is the third (in order of publication) of the three great coniferous iconographies of the nineteenth century, following Bedford and Lambert. The very fine plates fall into two categories: botanical studies of details of the needles and fruit of the individual trees, and landscape studies of examples of individual trees in their natural habitat. This plate is an outstanding example of the former group, here lithographed by W.H. McFarlane. Cf. Nissen, BBI, 1588; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p. 127; cf. Stafleu &Cowan 8685.

        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
