        Admiral David D. Porter promotes the purchase of the Island of St. Thomas

      "A scarce imprint relative to William Seward's attempt to purchase the Danish Virgin Island of St. Thomas between 1865 and 1868: ""THE ISLAND OF ST. THOMAS. LETTER OF VICE-ADMIRAL DAVID D. PORTER TO THE SECRETARY OF STATE."" three conjoined pages, front and verso, 8.25"" x 13"", Annapolis, November 6,1867, a transcript of Porter's report to Seward, the strategic advantages of purchasing the island concluded, ""I think St. Thomas is the keystone to the arch of the West Indies; it commands them all. It is of more importance to us than to any other nation, and if Europe was at leasure and its attention not distracted by its own complications, we would not be allowed to get the island on any terms. The chances are that we may not get it yet. The people of St. Thomas may prefer their present independent position to being mixed up with our difficulties."" Lightly toned and stained, small tear, small loss at lower left edge and punch hole at upper edge, both in blank areas, else very good condition.William Seward first began contemplating the idea of purchasing St. Thomas during the Civil War. While the majority of the islands in the West Indies sympathized with the the Confederacy, providing critical ports to blockade runners, the governor of the Danish island of St. Thomas was so friendly to the United States that Union ships could obtain special favors, serenely and openly. The Lincoln Administration was in need of a Caribbean base for refitting and processing of captured prizes, and the Danes were most likely to part with one of their possessions for a price. Seward first broached the subject with the Danish Minster in Washington in January 1865. After two years of negotiations, Denmark agreed to sell the islands of St. John and St. Thomas for $7.5 million with the condition that the islands residents be able to approve the annexation in a vote. St. Thomas was a lucrative free port and Admiral Porter, like many observers saw numerous reasons why the islanders might reject the proposal. Despite these fears, the islanders voted overwhelmingly for annexation. However the purchase was never ratified in the Senate due to the recent purchase of Alaska and the distraction over the Andrew Johnson impeachment. Ulysses S. Grant finally killed the project, pronouncing it ""'a scheme of Sewards,' and would have nothing to do with it.""Both islands (together with St. Croix) became part of the United States in 1917 in exchange for $25 million in gold. The purchase came about after an islander, David Hamilton Jackson, who campaigned against Danish mismanagement of the territory, convinced the King of Denmark government to sell the islands. "

        The Chromolithograph. A journal of Art, Decoration and the Accomplishments.

      London: Zorn & Co., 1867-9 - 2 volumes quarto (276 × 191 mm). Contemporary black calf, bevelled boards, title gilt to spines, raised bands, gilt devices in the compartments, attractive gilt and blind panelling to boards, cream surface-paper endpapers, gilt edges. A little rubbed, joints skilfully restored, some browning of the text, and offsetting from the plates, small contemporary ink ownership stamps to endpapers and some plates, but overall a very good set. Volume I with 78 tipped-in chromolithographs; volume II with 73. First edition. Uncommon, COPAC locates sets at Oxford, Cambridge, the Universities of London and Nottingham, and the V & A; OCLC adds the Getty, the Huntington, Yale and McGill. No complete set at auction in the last 40 years, this run, in common with that V & A, lacks the last issue for 27 March 1869. A short-lived periodical, in an already short run publication was suspended from 22 February to 27 June 1868, from a short-lived publishers. Zorn & Co., for whom we can trace only one other publication, The Floral Decoration of Churches at Christmas with numerous illustrations in colours and gold, by W. G. and G. A. Audsley - who contribute an article to the present work on the art of illumination - also of 1868 and just two copies recorded, Oxford and BL. Zorn were looking for a niche in the market, aiming to place "within the reach of all classes of people an Art Journal, illustrated in colours, and in all respects of a high order of merit," and that niche was clearly not a sufficient toe-hold to maintain the business. An appealing miscellany of articles on artistic themes; exhibition reviews; artist biographies; techniques; materials, and most interestingly "illustrated lessons," with numerous plates in tinted and coloured lithography.

        Official Manumission "Libertad" Document for a Black Slave Child in Cuba].

      Havana 1867 - Havana, 9 July 1867. Folio (ca. 31,5x21,5 cm). 2 pp., with an integral blank leaf. Brown ink on paper, with official notary stamps on top of rectos of both leaves. Light wear, some worming, mostly marginal but affecting a few letters at bottom; overall a very good document. An extraordinary document, signed and ratified by Havana notary public Juan Requeyra, granting freedom to a "brown-skinned girl" who "has not yet been baptized." She was to be named Maria del Carmen, and her mother a "Creole and mulattress slave Natalia" belonged to a local merchant Jose Rabell. The child's freedom was "graciously granted as a payment of her mother's good services everything will be given up, renounced and transferred as a matter of fact in her own cause in order for her to, as a free person from now onwards, do business, contract, buy and sell, appear in court, issue public deed and be able to do all that is allowed to people who freely act upon their own volition. Freedom is bound to be enforced at all times in an uncompromising and unscathed manner; by law she will remain protected along with her possessions." This document was necessary, as children born into slavery were considered to be slaves, unless, as here, were manumitted.

        Einige Bemerkungen über den Gebrauch des Miskroscopes. Wetzlar im März 1867. Optisches Institut von C.Kellner's Nachfolger. Mit eigenhändiger Unterschrift "E. Leitz" und Eintragung des Systems "7".

      . Wetzlar im März 1867, 4°, 2 pp.; mit Faltspuren... Extrem seltene Gebrauchsanweisung, wohl aus dem ersten Jahr der Teilhaberschaft von Ernst Leitz, im März 1867 trugen diese Gebrauchsanweisungen noch den Imprint "Optisches Institut von C.Kellner's Nachfolger: Friedr. Belthle." - - Ernst Leitz (1843-1920) trat 1864 in das von Friedrich Belthle geleitete "Optische Institut" in Wetzlar ein, dessen alleiniger Inhaber er 1869 wurde. Leitz' Kenntnisse in Serienfertigung, die ihm einen Vorsprung gegenüber der Konkurrenz verschafften, sowie die durch die medizinische Forschung steigende Nachfrage nach Mikroskopen förderten den Aufstieg des Unternehmens Leitz. - - "Carl Kellner (26.03.1826 - 13.05.1855) gründet das Optische Institut in Wetzlar zusammen mit Moritz Hensoldt im Jahre 1849. Das erste Mikroskopokular wird am 22. Dezember 1849 an den Bremer Apotheker Georg Christian Kindt geliefert, schon am 23. Januar 1850 folgt das nächste Okular an diesen Kunden. Das erste Mikroskop wird allerdings erst ein gutes Jahr später, am 9. Mai 1851 nach Genf ausgeliefert. Die Instrumente werden sehr gut angenommen und bis 1854 können 131 Mikroskope verkauft werden. Kellner erkrankt 1854 an Darmtuberkulose, sein nahes Ende ahnend weiht er seinen Cousin und Gehilfen Ludwig Engelbert in alle technischen Feinheiten der Herstellung der Mikroskope ein und überträgt ihm die Leitung der Werkstätte kurz vor seinem Tod. - Als im Dezember 1856 jedoch Friedrich Belthle (27.02.1829 - 09.05.1869), ebenfalls ein ehemaliger Gehilfe dieser Werkstatt, die Witwe Kellners heiratet (die bereits im August 1856 außerehelich ein Kind von Belthle zur Welt bringt), scheidet Engelbert aus dem Unternehmen aus. Belthle führt die junge Firma weiter, ab August 1857 mit Heinrich Friedrich Rexroth als Teilhaber. - Belthle gelingt es, den Ruf der Firma zu wahren, er bringt selbst aber bis auf die mechanische Optimierung der Instrumente nur geringe Neuerungen hervor. Die Geräte werden in Medizinerkreisen anerkannt, die Firma "Belthle & Rexroth (C. Kellners Nachfolger)" stellt bei der Versammlung deutscher Naturforscher und Ärzte im September 1858 in Karlsruhe Mikroskope aus, die Belthle dort persönlich präsentiert. Zu dieser Zeit werden in den Lohnlisten des Unternehmens unter anderem Ernst Gundlach sowie Wilhelm und Heinrich Seibert geführt. Im Jahre 1861 trennen sich Belthle und Rexroth wieder - im selben Jahr verlegt ihr Glaslieferant Theodore Daguet seine Glashütte von Solothurn nach Freiburg/Schweiz. - - Ernst Leitz tritt Anfang 1864 in die Werkstätte ein, die zu jenem Zeitpunkt eine Jahresproduktion von ungefähr 70 Mikroskopen verzeichnet und sich nach wie vor in dem von Kellner gekauften Haus "am reformierten Treppchen" befindet. Bereits am 7. Oktober 1865 wird Ernst Leitz Teilhaber des Unternehmens. Unter gemeinsamer Leitung wird am 3. September 1867 das 1000. Mikroskop ausgeliefert." Timo Mappes

        Autograph Letter, signed ("HW Beecher")

      [New York?], n.d - 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 8vo. 2 pp., on two panels (plus postscript) of a folded quarto lettersheet, in ink.

        Instrucciones que los Vireyes de Nueva Espana dejaron a sus sucesores. Anadense algunas que los mismos trajeron de la Corte.

      Imprenta Imperial, Mexico City 1867 - Large quarto (27 x 19 cm), pp (iv), 317. Scarce first edition of the reports - documents, letters, instructions - that each outgoing Viceroy gave to his succesor, as well as instructions from the kings in Madrid, etc. to their Viceroys in Mexico. These reports were frank assessments of the conditions throughout the country, incl. California and the Southwest US and Florida, Central America, and even the Caribbean. Text in Spanish. Palau (#120713) notes that "this important collection of documents was printed by order of the Emperor Maximilian, and the copies destroyed during the seige of Mexico City. " This is confirmed by its scarcity on the market and auction rooms - none recorded. Bookplate and owner signature of Walter Howe, US Ambassador to Chile. His signature is dated 1933, at which time he was studying for a PhD. in Latin American History at Harvard. Occasional light red pencil checks next to mining references; he apparently used this work in writing his own book "The Mining Guild of New Spain etc. " Contemporary half calf, gilt, raised bands, marbled boards. Near fine condition. A handsome copy with distinguished provenance. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Les Fleurs Animées. Texte par Alph. Karr, Taxile Delord & Le Cte Foelix. Nouvelle édition.

      Paris, Garnier Frères, 1867. 2 volumes. Royal 8vo (265 x 170mm). pp. (2), 339, (5); (2), 321, (5), with 2 handcoloured lithographed frontispieces, 50 handcoloured lithographed plates and 2 plain lithographed plates. Contemporary green half calf, richly gilt spines, gilt edges. The first edition was published in 1847. "Of all his work, this is his most graceful fantasy: the fifty-two plates of court beauties in floral haute couture present a suite of fashionable tableaux redolent of the sentimental spirit of French Romanticism, at the end of the July Monarchy and in the predawn of the Second Empire. This briljant assembly of the Court of Flora has all the elements of Romantic ballet with its highly conventionalized poses, fanciful costumes, and magical settings. To these Grandville has playfully added attendant beetles, crickets, butterflies, moths, and caterpillars, those diminutive inhabitants of the garden, in variant agressive or sycophant roles" (Wick, P.A.. The Court of Flora, 1981).

        Vijf jaren in Japan. (1857-1863). Bijdragen tot de kennis van het Japansche Keizerrijk en zijne bevolking.

      Leiden, Van den Heuvell & Van Santen, 1867-1868. 2 volumes. 8vo (245 x 160mm). pp. xii, 335, (i); pp. vi, 357, (i), with 2 coloured frontispieces, 12 plates of which 10 coloured and 1 coloured folding map. Publisher's pictorial wrappers (spines repaired). First and only edition. During the 1850s the Tokugawa government decided to strengthen its national defense and invited naval officers and technicians to Nagasaki. One of them was J. Pompe van Meerdervoort, a naval surgeon from the Netherlands. He was asked by the Japanese authorities to establish a new system of medical education in Nagasaki. Assisted by Matsumoto Ryôjun and Shiba Ryôkai he established a western style hospital with 124 beds and a medical school. When Pompe left Japan England, France and the USA were already strengthening their pressure on Japan to open up the country, and the Dutch influence, that had continued for 250 years, gradually began to decline. Nevertheless Pompes achievements and the outstanding role he played in the modernization of Japanese medicine are highly esteemed in Japan. /Later in 1865 the school's name was changed to Seitoku-Kan and after the Meiji-Restauration, it became the origin of the Medical School of Nagasaki University. Pompe's memoirs "Five years in Japan" describe the changing international situation in East Asia together with his medical activities and many observations on the Japanese society at his time.//Pompe also experimented with photography, collaborating with some pupils he had taken over from his predecessor, Dr. J.K. van den Broek. Van den Broek was the first to introduce photography in Japan during the years he practised there (1853-1857). Under his tuition, a Japanese doctor, Keisai, was learning to take photographs using the daguerreotype process invented in 1839./Among Pompe's students was the first professional photographer in Japan, Ueno Hikoma. He opened a photographic studio in Nagasaki in 1862. Another of Pompe's students, Uchida Kyuichi, became famous as the first photographer ever to photograph the Emperor and Empress.//Most plates show Japanese people in costumes, the frontispiece in vol. 1 shows the bay of Nagasaki and the frontispiece in vol. 2 shows the medical hospital at Nagasaki.//Provenance: Bookplate of C.C. Krieger.//Cordier 588; Tiele 873; Landwehr, 'Dutch Books with coloured plates', 395.

Carl Gottfried Semper (1832-1893) was a one of the greatest of the few scientists who has written on the Philippines. He was a pupil of renowned comparative anatomists F. von Leydig, R.A. von Kölliker and K. Gegenbauer, and became professor of Zoology at the University of Würzburg. "Semper devoted the period from December 1858 to May 1865 to the exploration of the Philippines... Nevertheless, it was a period of outstanding achievement, chiefly because Semper's dogged determination. He acquired magnificent zoological and ethnographic collections on the islands of Luzon, Bohol, Leyte, and Mindanao, thus laying a permanent foundation for future research in the Philippines... The ten- 4to-volume 'Reisen im Archipel der Philippinen', which contains Semper's scientific reports on his collection, is a monument to his industry and determination. It remains, to this day, an important source book, particularly for the Philippine mollusks" (DSB XII, p. 299)./The most beautifully produced volumes in the series are the 2 volumes on the butterflies of the Philippines. The exotic butterflies are beautifully hand-coloured. "Ausser etwa 30,000 Philippinische Schmetterlinge, welche ich dem Sammelfleiss meines Bruders Dr. Carl Semper verdanke, habe ich in neuer Zeit aus verschiedenen Quellen besonders durch die Güte der Herren Otto Koch und Dr. Stadenberg einen erheblichen Zuwachs erhalten, so dass im Ganzen bis jetzt gegen 50,000 Exemplare (Rhopalocera und Heterocera) durch meine Hände gegangen sind" (Preface p. 1). It is the first major publication on the butterflies of this area.//Provenance: A few pages with the Japanese stamp of Kikumaro Okano, armorial bookplate of City of Liverpool public libraries on inside front-covers and very faint blind circular marginal stamp of the library on the plates.//Nissen ZBI, 324 & 3806; B.M.

        Osnovania Geometrii: Rukovodstvo sostavlennoe dlia gemnaziy [The Essentials of Geometry: a guide created for gymnasiums]

      Ministerstvo Narodnogo Prosveschenia [The Ministry of Public Enlightenment], Moscow 1867 - 8vo. 192pp. Half-leather over decorative paper-covered boards. A geometry textbook created for use in gymnasiums, by Feodor Ivanovich Busse, a leading figure in the development of state educational curriculum in the Russian Empire during the 19th century. Busse published the first edition of the guide in 1844, while working as the director of St. Petersburg's 3rd gymnasium, a school that eventually would count Nabokov, Marshak, and Mravinsky among its alumni. The gymnasiums were the elite educational institutions in the Russian Empire, attended for the most part by young nobles, and personally overseen by the Tsar, Alexander II at the time. Busse's guide is designed to meet the high expectations of the Tsar's curriculum. The textbook is divided into two parts, "'Lines and Planes," and "Bodies," and each part is subdivided into several chapters, outlining explanations of axioms and theorems, and presenting a total of 558 problems, with some solutions at the end of each chapter. At the end of the volume are 8 foldout diagram sheets, depicting numerous geometric bodies. Text in Russian. Front board detached, but present. Leather binding peeled along spine, boards rubbed and scuffed, corners bumped. Some foxing and pencil marks to interior. Overall in fair condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
