A little rubbed at the extremities, contents lightly browned with a scatter foxing, the folding "Table of Comparative Chronology", is somewhat used, having the appearance of having been frequently referred to, but overall very good. Large black morocco presentation label to the front pastedown lettered in gilt within a broad gilt floral rolled panel: "Presented to Capt. W.A. Fraser by the Missionaries on the Loyalty Islands and New Hebrides as a token of respect for his character & gratitude for his services to the cause of Christian mission as Master of the missionary vessel Dayspring 1867". Handsome, and highly evocative relic of this most famous Pacific mission. Before becoming a hero of the Presbyterian mission to the Pacific, Capt. Fraser (1833-1914) of Pictou, N.S., had spent time as a blockade-runner, being "involved in at least two attempted smuggling voyages. Early in the war he succeeded in delivering contraband to the South for Pictou merchants. In January 1862 he was at Nassau with Magnet, which he intended to take to the American coast and into Wilmington … One of the voyage's backers, Pictou merchant William Norman Rudolf, confided to his diary that he and his associates planned to keep Fraser 'in the trade … he is a bold fellow and ready for anything yet thoroughly honest and upright' … Rudolf later wrote that Fraser was caught in a second smuggling operation, organised by Halifax partners" (Marquis, In Armageddon's Shadow: The Civil War and Canada's Maritime Provinces, p.47). Late in 1863, after signing on a crew that had promised to abstain from alcohol, tobacco and profanity, Fraser embarked as captain of the Dayspring, a 100 foot fast barquentine of 115 tons built by Carmichael and Co. of New Glasgow, N.S., serving as a Mission supply vessel plying between Australia and the islands of the Pacific. Much of the funding for the ship had been raised by the famous Scottish missionary J.G. Paton, who had recently fled the New Hebrides: "Paton was dispatched to Australia to raise funds for the mission and its new ship, Dayspring. His graphic description in the Chalmers Presbyterian Church, Sydney, of his supposed hairbreadth escape from cannibals won him many sympathizers. Its unwearied repetition in some 470 meetings in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania … made his name a household word. In May 1863 after two great farewell meetings in Melbourne and Sydney, which brought his receipts to £5000" (ADB). Fraser's own abiding commitment to the project was demonstrated by the fact that "soon after the keel was laid, [he took over] the actual superintendence and care of the structure" (Cambell and McDonald, A Year in the New Hebrides, Loyalty Islands and New Caledonia … A Narrative of the Voyages of the Dayspring, p.45). The Dayspring's main duties related to the mission to the New Hebrides, but on occasion she also entered Eastern Polynesia, "to give such aid as she could to the missionaries of the London Missionary Society, while they were without a vessel of their own" (p.49) visiting Samoa, Raratonga, and the Ellice group. It is clear that her role in the mission went far beyond that pure logistics; "The 'Dayspring' is one of the institutions of the Presbyterian church, and her name is famous throughout all our congregations and Sabbath schools. The vessel is supported by other Presbyterian churches as well as ours ; but Melbourne is her head-quarters, and she is well known, by sight or by report, to all our people. Her visits to the colonies have done very much in awakening a missionary spirit throughout our borders ; and it is now felt that, as time will permit, she should visit all the seaports of Australasia. Last year she visited the chief towns of New Zealand, and this year it had been resolved to run her up to Geelong …The local ministers entered very heartily into the arrangements, and they were able in a few days to address all the Presbyterian congregations in the town and neighbourhood. These services culminated in an afternoon gathering of Sabbath-school children in the hall of the Mechanics' Institute on Sabbath, the 13th. The assemblage of children was really immense, and their bright appearance augured well for the future of the church and colony of Victoria. During the same week the ' Dayspring ' was taken alongside the wharf and for several days her decks and cabin were crowded with visitors. Altogether, the missionary impression produced on the town was very strong, and will, no doubt, also be lasting" (p.56). Capt. Fraser's role in this success was central, in the missionaries report for 1869 they commended him for "continuing to perform his varied ship duties in a praiseworthy manner, taking a deep interest in our mission" being "a universal favourite among the natives; and from his obliging, kindly, and gentlemanly bearing to all connected with the mission, proving himself qualified for the responsible and noble work to which God has called him …" On his retirement in 1872, the Melbourne Christian Review remarked that "The popularity of the ' Dayspring ' in the colonies is due very much to Captain Fraser, and it is even a question whether the mission vessel would now be in existence but, under God, for the seamanship and self-denial of her commander. It is no light task to sail a vessel for so many years among the shoals and reefs of Polynesia without shipwreck ; to have much intercourse with many native tribes and races without a collision; to control a crew without insubordination; to convey so many mission families without a complaint; and to maintain the missionary character of the' Dayspring ' in so many of the ports of Australasia — and this Captain Fraser has done". Fraser eventually retired to England, dying in Ilfracombe in 1914. Dayspring was wrecked in a hurricane in Anelgauhat Harbour, Aneityum in January 173. The present splendid gift remains as tangible proof of the high regard in which he was held.

      Léon Escudier [PN L.E. 2765., L.E. 2765 et 2767.] [April 1867], Paris - First edition. Hopkinson 61A considers this to be the earliest printing. Collector William Crawford, however, identified what he believed to be an earlier issue, distinguished by typographical differences to the title page (Verdi's name in a smaller typeface and the absence of the lithographer's name to the lower right corner) and the absence of the printer's imprint to the foot of the first page of music."Don Carlos has of late become one of the best-loved and most respected of Verdi’s operas. Verdi dedicated to the work some of his greatest dramatic music. One need think only of the magnificent series of confrontational duets that form such a great part of the drama. several of these break decisively with traditional models, forging for themselves a vital new relationship between musical and dramatic progress. It is for such moments that Don Carlos will be remembered and treasured." Roger Parker in Grove online Large octavo.

        Floral Belles from the Green-House and Garden Painted from Nature.

      - New York: Charles Scribner & Company, 1867. Folio, (17 x 12 7/8 inches). Hand-colored lithographed frontispiece and 15 hand-colored lithographed plates, all colored by Badger. Publisher's full black morocco, upper cover with broad floral gilt borders and gilt lettered title, rear cover with floral border in blind, hinges carefully restored, spine in six compartments with a repeat decoration in gilt, dentelles, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. A very fine copy, internally immaculate. First (only) edition. A charming American flower book with hand-coloured plates: among the best folio flower books produced in America. Mrs. Badger was an illustrator with an intuitive feeling for the decorative, as she amply demonstrates in this book, a companion to her Wild Flowers (published 1859), though here focussed on the greenhouse and garden. "Contains 16 very beautiful full page flower plates in many colors and shades. Each flower portrayed is also the subject for a poem which serves as text for the illustration" (Bennett). Species represented include Azalea, Geranium, Roses, Jasmine, Bretia (Frontispiece); Camellia & Begonia, Night Blooming Cereus; Fuchsias, Cactus, Scarlet Geranium; Calla & Poincettia; Passion-Flowers, a bouquet of Roses, Narcissus, Hyacinth, Lily of the Valley, Tulip & Dielytra; Salvia & Dielytra; Pansies, Moss Rose; Tulips, Rose of Gethsemane; Larkspur & Japan Lily; Asters. The handcolored plates, colored by Mrs. Badger over very light lithographed lines and without captions (thus giving the plates the appearance of original watercolors), were executed in an era when chromolithographs were fast replacing such skilled hand work. A contemporary advertisement for the work by the publisher, who priced the work $30 when issued, describes it as follows: "The volume is a stately folio, elegantly bound in Turkey morocco and the paper and presswork, and the whole mechanical execution are perfect. There are sixteen pictures in the volume -- favorite or representative flowers -- and each of them is painted from nature by the patient and laborious hand of the artist, and with such exquisite care and taste, and delicacy of touch as to vie with nature herself." A review of the work in a December 1866 issue of Hours at Home proclaimed the work "without exaggeration, a most unique, highly artistic and gorgeous affair -- a work that reflects great credit on the artistic taste of the country, as well as on the genius and industry of the author." "Though little is known about her life other than the landmark dates of her birth, marriage and death, Mrs. Badger's fine drawings and talented hand have survived to keep her name alive" (J. Kramer, Women of Flowers, New York: 1996). Nissen BBI 56; Bennett p. 6; McGrath, p. 57. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Parisienne". Manette Salomon, im Dunklen in großer Abendrobe vor einem Pariser Café 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 Académie 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 débats littéraires 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 Thozée bei Mettet, wo ihn auch zahlreiche Künstlerfreunde besuchten; später kamen noch Paris und Brüssel als ständig wechselnde Aufenthaltsorte hinzu. 1868 war er Mitbegründer der „Société des Beaux Arts". 1869 verliebte er sich in die Schwestern Léontine und Aurélie 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. Mallarmé, P. Verlaine, J. Péladan u.a.

      - Catalan pianist and composer Enrique Granados "appeared frequently in recitals, concerto performances and chamber music alongside such prominent figures as Thibaud, Saint-Saëns and Casals, a personal friend, for whom he composed several pieces. He became well known for his impromptu improvisations. Granados’s musical language is rooted in mainstream European traditions, frequently blended with elements derived from traditional Spanish (and less often Catalan) folk music. [His] foremost strength was undoubtedly his melodic gift, which can be best appreciated in his songs and piano works. Granados made a significant contribution to the development of a national Spanish school and, though he is often considered more conservative than Albéniz or Falla, the degree to which native elements inform his music should not be underestimated. " Mark Larrad in Grove onlineJean-Bénédikt Bellon (1867-1914) was adtive as a music publisher from ca. 1902-07. Letters of Granados are rare; this is a rather significant example. 1-1/4 pp. Octavo. Dated Barcelona, November 30, 1903. In black ink. On stationery with "Academia Granados" printed at head. In French (with translation).Granados grants Bellon the exclusive rights to his works in France. In a postscript he also mentions "Pablo" – almost certainly the noted cellist Pablo Casals (1876-1973)."I have spoken with my editors and they agreed to cede to you the exclusive rights of my works for all of France. I very much wish to see Paris again, and I will do so with the greatest pleasure on that occasion. One day or another I will travel there for nothing more than my own pleasure, and I assure you I will bear that expense without regret. You told me that Pablo would return the 25th – In a letter Pablo tells me that he will be there the 7th. I will certainly tell you of his return." Slightly worn; creased at folds.

        Signature of Victor Emanuel II (Vittorio Emanuele Maria Alberto Eugenio Ferdinando Tommaso) and five other ephemera items

      1867 - Vittorio Emanuele II - First United King of Italy. Signed clipped piece of paper with Vittorio Emanuele II signature. [with 5 other pieces involving Dr. Leone Levi visit to Italy in 1867].Various sizes. A letter from the Minister of Agriculture dated 2nd Oct. 1867; a program of the musical 'Della guardia Nazionale al Pranzo di S. M. i1 Re nel R. Palazzo Pitti' and a single page menu both with the date Oct. 5 1867; with a printed. invitation to the 'II Preffo del Palazzo d' Ordine di Sua Maesta. With an Italian sonnet written in Leone Levi's hand. Victor Emanuel II (Vittorio Emanuele Maria Alberto Eugenio Ferdinando Tommaso) (1820-1878) King of Sardinia from 1849 until, on 17 March 1861, he assumed the title King of Italy to become the first king of United Italy since the 6th century, a title he held until his death in 1878. The Italians gave him theepithet Father of the Homeland (Padre de/la Patria).Dr. Leone Levi was professor of Commercial Law in King's College, London.Leone Levi was an English jurist and statistician. Born to a Jewish family in Ancona, Italy, he worked in commerce there before emigrating to Liverpool in 1844. There he obtained British citizenship and joined the Presbyterian church. At the time, English law regarding the establishment of local chambers of commerce was highly unsystematic and wanting. He therefore advocated their institution in numerous pamphlets, leading to the establishment of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce in 1849, with Levi as its secretary. In 1850 he published his Commercial Law of the World, an exhaustive comparative treatise upon the laws and codes of mercantile countries. Appointed in 1852 to the chair of commercial law at King's College London, he was a popular instructor who innovated evening classes.Levi was called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn in 1859, and a doctorate in political science from the University of Tübingen. His chief work, History of British Commerce and of the Economic Progress of the British Nation, 1763-1870, is considered to be a partisan account of British economic development, but its value as a work of reference cannot be gainsaid. His other works include: Work and Pay; Wages and Earnings of the Working Classes; and International Law, with Materials for a Code. quoted from Wikipedia. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

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.

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."

        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).
