Charles Swett
New Orleans: Price Current Print, 1868. "We are politically nothing-taxed beyond precedent-denied representation-almost deprived of the ability to pay taxes, and without a voice in the formation of those laws by which we are to be governed-the party in power striving by every means in its power to place an inferior race in a position of political importance, and to even elevate to social equality a people it was undoubtedly the intention of our Creator should occupy a position below us, and be under our direction as certainly as it was His intention that the superior should control the inferior. This is a gloomy array of evils, and should it not rather cause us to buckle on our armor and to make a powerful effort to keep this country under the control of white men?"

Joint Committee on Conduct of Elections
New Orleans: A. L. Lee, 1868. "Humanity sickens at the contemplation of a bigotry so ferocious and a hate so remorseless, founded solely on political differences, and having for its impelling motive, not resistance to oppression, but an unruly desire to coerce the sentiments and actions of others, and a blind feeling of rage and vengeance toward those whom they cannot cowe nor silence."

Firmin was one of his grandchildren. The family's paper manufactory was located at Essonnes, a town c. 30 km southeast of Paris near Corbeil, which had notable paper factories. Work Didot invented the word "stereotype", which in printing refers to the metal printing plate created for the actual printing of pages (as opposed to printing pages directly with movable type), and used the process extensively, revolutionizing the book trade by his cheap editions. His manufactory was a place of pilgrimage for the printers of the world. He first used the process in his edition of Callet's Tables of Logarithms (1795), in which he secured an accuracy till then unattainable. He published stereotyped editions of French, English and Italian classics at a very low price.[1] He was also the author of two tragedies -- La Reine de Portugal and La Mort d'Annibal -- and he wrote metr … [Click Below for Full Description]

A.D. Cross, [Boston?], 1868. Small carte de visite photograph, approximately 2.5" x 4". Fine in original printed envelope which adds additional biographical information. The envelope is lightly soiled, but otherwise near fine. Letterpress printed below the photo is the publication information. The envelope includes information about Bakeman's birth on the Van Rensselaer Patent in Albany County, New York on October 10, 1759, his service under Capt. Van Aernam and Col. Willet during the last four years of the Revolution, and his then current residency in Cattaraugus, N.Y. In 1864 Reverend Elias Brewster Hilliard (the maternal grandfather of poet Archibald MacLeish) compiled his book *The Last Men of the Revolution: A Photograph of Each from Life*, now one of the most eagerly sought after early photography books. Bakeman was not among the six veterans pictured, however there is much reason to believe that Bakeman was indeed the last survivor of the Revolution, and one of very few to live through the Civil War as well. A rare photograph, and excessively so with the printed envelope.

I am gratified with your approval of the general spirit and purpose of my speech - and can see much reason to hope that the attention to the subject, will, before long, bring the nation to sensible and honest conclusions on finance - The statement in my speech that to double the currency would double prices, is quite likely too broad to be practically true - You will observe that I was developing the general principle which lies at the foundation of currency - and which is likely to be ___ (?) in its application by many incidental causes. I was careful to guard my language thus: '... BUSINESS REMAINING THE SAME [underlined], doubling the currency will result in doubling prices.' As a matter of fact, the supposed increase of currency would increase speculative business - and somewhat increase the demand for currency, so that the increase of prices would not be quite 100 per cent ...".

WATSON, James C.
Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co, 1868. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's pebbled cloth binding with gilt lettering on the spine, spine a bit worn at head and faded, corners worn; interior in good condition with browning only on the first and last blanks, small library book label on the flyleaf verso. First edition of this thorough and valuable investigation of theoretical astronomy. Watson provides an in-depth analysis of planetary motion and the discovery of new comets, noting in his preface the fundamental complications of dynamics and all the problems presented. He states historical facts relating to difficulties with theoretical astronomy, citing Newton, Euler, Boscovich, Lagrange, and Laplace, among others. Through a series of observations and tables, Watson attempts to determine the orbit of the "heavenly bodies." At age 15, Watson (1838-1880) matriculated at the University of Michigan, where he began studying classical languages and later focused on astronomy with professor Franz Brünnow. He then became the second director of Detroit Observatory, succeeding his late professor. It was during this time he wrote this work on theoretical astronomy. Watson is best known for his announcement of the discovery of the planet Vulcan, a body between Mercury and the sun. It is now assumed that what he actually viewed were the results of sun spots and small planetoids, which may exist. It is also assumed (in astronomical lore) that his imagined celestial body was the inspiration for the planet Vulcan in the Star Trek series.

McDONALD, Thomas E.
New Jersey / New York / Michigan / Ohio. A collection of 43 letters from 1868 written to and from Thomas E. McDonald to investors, salesmen, and his partner David D. Stelle. Most letters are near fine, some have age-toning on the edges of the letters. An archive of letters between the inventor Thomas E. McDonald, his partner David D. Stelle, and various investors and salesmen for their "Improved Harrowed Cultivator". McDonald and Stelle's "Improved Harrowed Cultivator" was patented to both of them in 1867. It combined the three stages of growing corn: planting seeds, harrowing the stalks, and cultivating the corn. The letters are written in 1868 around the New Jersey and New York area, mostly from New Brunswick, New Jersey. However a couple of letters are from Jackson, Michigan and Ohio. Most of the letters are from McDonald to investors hoping that they can help fund the production of the cultivator. He also writes to Nelson Dunham, an associate, about the difficulty in finding investor, "I think I would not create any unnecessary alarm, get posted from Washington first before much is said. I will endeavor to push things as fast as possible". There are letters from various salesmen offering to pitch the cultivator and also including their input on how they'd change the machine if it were theirs. Particularly Johnathan Baker who wrote letter after letter about business meetings and working on the project with McDonald. Baker does not show up for the meeting about the cultivator at first, "Am sorry to be obtund to say they are not here yet, have telephoned to Baker and writt … [Click Below for Full Description]

CANBY, William and James)
Gales & Seaton, Washington, D.C, 1868. A collection of 62 bound large folio volumes consisting of 59 volumes of the *Daily National Intelligencer* (published daily except Sunday); and three volumes of the *National Intelligencer* (triweekly edition). Owned and edited by Joseph Gales, Jr., in partnership with his brother-in-law William W. Seaton, the *Intelligencer* provided the nation with accurate and detailed reports of governmental activities (including debates and speeches, President's messages, proclamations, etc.), along with daily articles, reports, editorials, etc, on the most important events and issues of the day. According to *The New York Times* (reporting on an incident during the War of 1812): ". so powerful was its influence that when Gen. Ross, in command of the British troops, entered the capital after the unfortunate affair of Bladensburgh, his first inquiry was not for the Capitol, the President's house, or the departments, but for the *National Intelligencer* office, and it was the first establishment demolished, causing a short cessation in its regular publication." Primarily a political newspaper, the *Intelligencer* served as the voice of the Madison, Monroe, and J. Quincy Adams administrations, and it continued to serve as the voice of the Federal Government until the election of Andrew Jackson, when the newspaper switched to the Whig party. It was printed in four pages (typically five columns to the page). Most other newspapers from throughout the country took their coverage of national politics and government directly from the *Intelligencer*. The … [Click Below for Full Description]

The majority of the commissioners briefly state that there hasn't been any activity in the slave trade in their region. However, at Africa's east coast, especially around Mozambique and Zanzibar, the reports regularly mention captured dhows with slaves on board, mostly heading for Mukalla, Muscat, Persia or the Red Sea: "a greater part of the slaves exported from the coast of Africa find their way into Persia" (p. 71). Sometimes new laws against slavery and slave trade are included. The reports from the naval officers also deal with commerce, rebellions, politics, etc. In very good condition.

(Nagato; Shimonoseki; Nagasaki), 1868. Manuscript Journal. Octavo. Measuring 5.5" x 8". About 180 pages in manuscript: pp. [4] 1-21 [22-170], followed by several blank leaves, and seven pages of memoranda at the back. Bound in half calf and marbled paper over boards, gilt spine. Approximately 30,000 words, written from 12 January - 30 October, 1868. Boards are a bit warped with partial splitting to front joint, marbled paper is worn, some staining to the text pages, good or better. With a printed "Weekly Union Calendar for 1868" affixed on the verso of front free endpaper. A densely written journal of Alexander Vedder's nearly daily entries (with a four-week gap in September), documenting his experiences as the physician and school master for the Prince of Ch sh during the year of 1868, a scant 15 years after Commodore Matthew Perry and his fleet entered Tokyo harbor and forced a trade relationship with Japan. Vedder knew that he was one of the few foreigners present in one of the most politically important parts of the country at a pivotal time in Japanese history: the Boshin War had just broken out, pitting Japan's two most powerful samurai, the Princes of Ch sh and Satsuma in support of the Emperor Meiji, against the ruling Tokugawa Shogunate. He thus deliberately records much information about the country, and about Japanese customs, along with his personal reactions to the culture. In a June, 1868 letter to his brother Elihu Vedder, he had written: "I have enjoyed about as good an opportunity of observing and studying the characteristics of these people as has been aff … [Click Below for Full Description]

[c.1868]. An Early Bilingual Bordeaux Wine List27cm x 21cm. [4] pp. Unbound, two spots (not affecting text), signs of having been folded. An UNRECORDED and extremely rare early wine list for the wines of Bordeaux. Printed lithographically (to look like a handwritten sheet) and issued by Gaden and Klipsch, the wines are offered en barriques (in oak barrels) or en bouteilles (in bottles). The list begins with the following "Nota" in French and English: In general, all the numerous growths of Bordelais are sold under the known names of Lafite, Latour, Larose, Mouton, Lagrange, Pauillac, Margaux, Saint Estephe, St. Julien, etc., without any mention of the year, and even when the produce of the growths or districts of these names have been indifferent as in the years 1860, 1863, 1866. We cannot undertake to furnish every year, Wines under the same names, because there are years in which the growths turn out badly in our Cellars, but we always point out the growth, the district, and the year of the Wines that we can recommend, with perfect security.Twenty-three different red wines in barrel are offered, all of which are from the years 1864, 1865, and 1867. Producers include Château Cantenac (1100 francs); Château Ségur Parempuyre (400 francs); Malescot Margaux (1000 francs); Listrac Medoc (400 francs); Château Citran (650 francs); and Ducrû St. Julien (1500 francs). At the end of this section are tasting notes: "The 1864 are distinguished by their delicacy, their fine flavour and their smoothness. They are thinner Wines than those of 1865 which are very warm and full-bodied." … [Click Below for Full Description]
