        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Le Verrier").

      O. O., 21. V. 1869 [?]. - ½ S. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. An den Physiker Jules Antoine Lissajous (1822-1880). - Le Verrier war 1845 die Berechnung der Planetenbahn des Neptun gelungen, die er durch Beobachtungen von Störungen im Umlauf des Uranus ermittelt hatte. Auf diesen Berechnungen aufbauend, beobachtete im Jahr darauf Johann Gottfried Galle erstmals den Planeten am Okular seines Teleskops auf der Berliner Sternwarte. "Später versuchte Le Verrier mit der gleichen Methode, Bahnstörungen des Merkur (Periheldrehung) zu erklären, postulierte die Existenz eines Planeten innerhalb der Merkurbahn und nannte diesen Vulkan. Astronomen in aller Welt versuchten, diesen Planeten zu finden, jedoch ohne Erfolg. 1915 bewies jedoch Albert Einstein mit der Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie, daß sich die Bahnstörungen allein durch das Schwerkraftfeld der Sonne erklären lassen" (Wikipedia). Neben seinen Forschungen zur Himmelsmechanik ging Le Verrier auch "als Erfinder der Wetterkarte in die Geschichte ein. Er baute auf telegraphisch mitgeteilten Daten eine Wettervorhersage auf, erstmals für den 19. Februar 1855, 10 Uhr, für Frankreich, die er der Pariser Akademie der Wissenschaften vortrug. In der Folge entstand der meteorologische Dienst in Frankreich" (ebd.). Sein Name ist einer der 72 auf dem Eiffelturm verewigten. - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf des "Observatoire Imperial". - Mit kleineren Randläsuren und einem kleinen Fleck am unteren Blattrand. - Die Verso-Seite von Bl. 2 mit kl. Registraturetikett, hs. Numerierung "120" und mit dem verschlungenen Monogrammstempel "LS". - Selten.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wien, 7. X. 1869. - 3 SS. Folio. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Fürsten: "Das gnädige Wohlwollen u. freundliche Interesse welches Ew. Durchlaucht mir gleich beim ersten Sehen zu schenken die Gewogenheit hatten, veranlaßt mich direct Kenntniß zu geben, von dem durchgreifenden Erfolg den meine Kaiser-Ouverture bei der Bevölkerung Wiens gehabt - wie Euch beiliegende Blätter bezeugen. Ich habe nun theils aus Herzensdrang, theils weil ich dazu von allen Seiten aufgefordert, gewagt es der Majestät dem Kaiser zu Füßen zu legen [ ]". - Westmeyer zog 1869 nach Wien und richtete dort sein Interesse auf den Aufbau eines Militärmusik-Konservatoriums, womit er jedoch scheiterte. Österreichs Militärkapellen nahmen seine "Kaiser-Ouvertüre" bei Veranstaltungen aus Anlass des Geburtstags von Kaiser Franz Josef I. in ihr Programm auf. - Mittig gefaltet.

        [BENT'S FORT, COLORADO TERRITORY]

      [Bent's Fort in southeastern Colorado, 1869. Two short closed tears at the extreme edges, and a tiny chip in the lower right corner, not affecting the image. Archival matting. Excellent displayable condition. A very fine and finished pencil drawing of Bent's Fort, on the Arkansas River in southeastern Colorado Territory, one of the very few images of this legendary western fort, once the center of the fur trading empire built by brothers George and William Bent. It depicts the once important trading post during its last commercial phase, as a stagecoach station for the Barlow-Sanderson Overland Mail & Express Company on the route from Kansas City to Santa Fe. The surviving structures of the adobe stronghold are seen in a deteriorating state, barnyard animals roaming the grounds, the walls and gates falling, tended by a lone agent. It is possibly the last image of the original Bent's Fort, of which few images survive in any form. Bent's Fort was constructed in 1833 by Bent, St. Vrain & Company, the largest fur trading and commercial firm in the Southwest. The company developed a complex business network as part of the Santa Fe trade, selling blankets from New Mexico and buffalo robes from the Plains, driving Mexican sheep through to Missouri, trading in horses and mules, and trading goods to Indians. Just on the American side of the then boundary with Mexico, it was in a perfect location to serve as a trade nexus. At the same time it served as a base for U.S. government exploring and military expeditions such as those of Kearny, Dodge, Fremont, and Abert. With the end of the Mexican-American War and the American annexation of New Mexico, the fort lost its strategic significance, and the proprietors were struck a serious blow when the senior partner, Charles Bent, the provisional American governor of New Mexico, was murdered in Taos in 1847. In 1849 his brother, William Bent, offered to sell the fort to the United States, but, perceiving the government's very low counter-offer as an insult, he set fire to his stores of gun powder, destroying many of the buildings, and abandoned the fort. From 1849 through 1861, Bent's Fort was unoccupied and allowed to deteriorate. Barlow-Sanderson operated the stagecoach station from 1861 until 1881, after which settlers in the region began cutting away adobe from the fort for use in their own buildings. An Arkansas River flood in 1921 completed the destruction of the few remaining ruins. Bent's Fort has since been reconstructed on its original foundations by the National Park Service and designated a National Historic Site. Very few images of Bent's Fort survive, despite its key role in the Santa Fe and fur trades at their height. A detailed plan and view of the fort in James W. Abert's report of his 1845 western expedition are the best known depictions of the fort, and these, along with the archeological evidence, provided the basis for the Park Service reconstruction. It has been suggested that the monogram in the lower corner of this picture is that of John Frederick Kensett, a leading painter of the Hudson River School and an artist skilled in small pencil drawings, learned in his career as an engraver. Kensett made on-the-spot sketches of the Fort during his 1870 trip to Colorado Territory with fellow Hudson River School painters Worthington Whittredge and Sanford Robinson Gifford. Only four of the pencil sketches absolutely identifiable as by Kensett survive from this Colorado trip, and we make no attribution of the present drawing. This very fine drawing of Bent's Fort is unrecorded in the ART INVENTORIES CATALOG of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, unknown to the archivist at Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site, and unpublished. One of the few depictions of a major historic landmark of the West, the drawing is a significant addition to the art history of Colorado.

Bi-mensuel puis à partir du 2 août devint hebdomadaire ; le caricaturiste Coinchon fut associé à la direction jusqu'au 5 décembre. « Publication amusante et fantaisiste, dont l'esprit peut être jugé par cette phrase extraite de la préface du premier numéro, préface qui était une caricature littéraire de Victor Hugo : « Celui qui écrit ces lignes s'est imposé une fonction : rire, chose grave. Faire rire, chose plus grave : Mission. Mission, fonction, tout est là. Ou là. Là ou là, tyrolienne. Passons ». Chaque numéro est consacré à un sujet précis (idée qui fut reprise par la suite par le Paris illustré, mais dans un esprit qui ne fut pas uniquement caricatural) ; La Parodie précisait en effet dans son numéro du 4 juillet : «.cette feuille amusante et éminemment fantaisiste reproduit en charge l'événement du jour, la pièce ou le roman en vogue, le salon, l'actualité ». C'est ainsi que les numéros furent successivement intitulé : Le Salon de 1869, Le Théâtre, Le Boulevard, Les livres, Bade, La Féerie. Illustrations caricaturales par : Coinchon, Gédéon, Gill, Hadol, Humbert, Lemot, A. Le Petit, H. Oulevay, Pilotell, Félisx Régamey, Robida, Shib » (Jones, 95). Les textes sont de Gill, Eugène Vermersch, Oulevay, J. Favre, Ernest d'Hervilly, E. Regamey, G. Puissant, Le Cousin Jacques, Francis Enne, A. Brun.

      Dresden, 14. VII. 1869. - 3½ SS. 8vo. "Herzlichen Sängergruß zuvor! Schon sind 8 Wochen vorüber, seit wir uns im lieben Nürnberg sahen und sprachen, und erst heute kann ich Ihnen Mittheilungen in Bezug auf das beabsichtigte Sängerfest in Dresden im Jahr 1865 machen, selbige sind aber, wie Sie ersehen werden, der Art, daß dasselbe nunmehr als gesichert zu betrachten ist, und daß wir unsere Blicke auf keine andere Stadt zu richten nöthig haben. Nach meiner Rückkehr von Nürnberg ersuchte ich den Vorstand des Dr. allg. Sängervereins, Hr Prof. Dr. Löwe, eine Abgeordneten-Versammlung einzuberäumen, welcher ich mein Referat - die Nürnberger Verhandlungen wegen des Festes betreffend - verlesen und übergeben wollte. Eine solche kam erst im Juni zu Stande. Mit größter Aufmerksamkeit ward mein Referat angehört [ ]". - Otto studierte Theologie, Philosophie und Musik in Leipzig und wurde 1827 Musiklehrer am Blochmannschen Musikinstitut in Dresden. 1830-75 war er Kantor an der dortigen Kreuzkirche und Dirigent der Dresdner Liedertafel. - Auf Briefpapier mit gepr.

        New Tracks in North America, A Journal of Travel and Adventure Whilst Engaged in a Survey for a Southern Railroad to the Pacific Ocean During 1867-8

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1869. First Edition. Two volumes, pp lxv, 236; vii, 322, complete with 20 colored lithograph plates, 3 botanical plates, woodcuts in the text, a colored folding map and a colored plate with three small maps. An attractive set, recased, with new endpapers but original cloth binding retained. Vol. I has a few pencil markings, one plate with repair to the verso, and one page with a corner missing, resulting in loss of a few characters of text. Vol. II very clean. Bell, a British physician, traveled to St. Louis in 1867 to study the principles of homeopathy. There he joined Palmer's Kansas Pacific Railway expedition (1868-69) in the informal capacity of both physician and photographer. The expedition sought the best route to extend the Railway across Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and southern California to the Pacific coast. Bell's description of his experiences is credited for its scholarship and readability. Part II includes a lengthy section on "The Native Races of New Mexico," in which Bell "traces the migration northward of the Aztec race, driven by Spanish cruelty, with much ingenuity, by the ruins of their popular architecture" (Field 109). The folding map shows all of the West beyond the 100th meridian and south of the 42nd parallel as well as Mexico north of the 26th parallel. Wheat comments that it "has a distinctly modern aspect, since it applies different colors to varying elevations of the land." After the expedition, Bell and Palmer became business partners, together founding the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad as well as the city of Colorado Springs and many smaller enterprises in central Colorado. Streeter 181; Howes B-330; Graff 246; Farqhuar 25.

        HE KNEW HE WAS RIGHT

      1869 - With Sixty-four Illustrations by Marcus Stone. [In Two Volumes.] London: Strahan and Company, 1869. Original blind-stamped green cloth. First Edition in book form. Louis Trevelyan "knew he was right" about his young wife's infidelity. This is~a long and detailed study of the gradual falling into madness of a suspicious husband. The final stages of his mental and moral dilapidation have a wild affliction unusual in the controlled world of Trollope characters. [Sadleir]~This was one of the eight Trollope novels that were initially serialized in parts -- issued in 32 weekly wrappered parts (also available as eight monthly parts), beginning in October 1867 and ending in May 1869. There was one full-page plate plus one initial vignette by Marcus Stone in each weekly part -- hence a total of 64 illustrations, as indicated on the title pages. The publisher Virtue gave Trollope extremely generous terms in order to be chosen to publish this novel -- too generous: Virtue "went under" after the 29th part, after which another publisher Strahan issued the remaining few -- as well as this two-volume publication in the final month of serialization, using the exact same leaves and illustrations.~This is a very good-plus set, perhaps near-fine, with very minor shelf-wear at the extremities and one little dent on a spine; the delicate original pale yellow endpapers are still present. In our experience this novel seems to be scarcer in the original cloth than most of Trollope's other illustrated (i.e. serialized) novels. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) 31.

        'The Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak' [by Jacob Lutz]. Mountain with with lake and Indian encampment in foreground.

      [Published by Thomas McLean, 1869]. 19.25 x 32.25in to mount opening.. Chromolithograph, laid down on backing board, with old mount, a few tiny surface flaws, some very faint spotting in sky, This was the first of Bierstadt's 'Great Pictures' completed in 1863 that brought him fame and fortune. As his rival Frederic Church did, the format for a 'Great Picture' was to produce a large panoramic landscape (here 6 x 10 feet) and exhibit it to a wide public at a one picture touring exhibition, which was accompanied by explanatory brochures and promoted by reproductions. The original painting was purchased by the English railway magnate James McHenry for $25,000. Even though privately owned it was exhibited at McLean's London gallery in 1866. In 1867 Bierstadt took it with 'A Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt Rosalie' to Osborne House to show Queen Victoria. They were both exhibited at McLean's in 1868 when the production of this chromolithograph was under way. These prints were sold laid down to emulate paintings. The surface even recreates the cracklure of oil paintings. The announcement of this chromolithograph with its companion was first made in January 1868 but they were not issued until autumn 1869. Accounts of their production vary one suggesting twenty stones were employed and another thirty. The original painting is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This print is a sumptuous reproduction of one of the finest early paintings to depict the American West. Commenting on these prints which were then being exhibited at Goupil's of New York, the 'Post' newspaper (4 Oct. 1869) wrote 'They are unquestionably the finest examples of chromolithographic art'. The mountain is named after Frederick W. Lander [1821-1862] whose surveying party to the Rocky Mountains Bierstadt joined in 1859, when the artist made the preliminary drawings for this 'Great Picture'. Reference: ANDERSON, N. & FERBER, L.S. 'Albert Bierstadt Art & Enterprise' Exhibition Catalogue. Brooklyn Museum, 1991. This chromolithograph is discussed on pp. 274-275, figure 89, and illustrated in colour, Plate 78 on p. 291.

        REPORT OF SURVEYS ACROSS THE CONTINENT IN 1867-'68, ON THE THIRTY-FIFTH AND THIRTY-SECOND PARALLELS, FOR A ROUTE EXTENDING THE KANSAS PACIFIC RAILWAY TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN AT SAN FRANCISCO AND SAN DIEGO

      Philadelphia. 1869.. 250pp. plus folding map and folding profile. Original front printed wrapper bound into modern dark brown calf, gilt. Bookplate on front pastedown. Text clean. Small tape repairs to map at gutter margin. Very good plus. One of the most detailed western railway survey publications, accompanied by a large, important map of the West and profile of the route from Missouri to California. This work sets forth the ambitious expansion plans for the Kansas Pacific Railway. Shortly after the railroad's decision to follow the Smokey Hill Route across Kansas and into Denver, the railroad began to show interest in moving forward with its projected line through New Mexico and Arizona to the Pacific. The folding map depicts the proposed route of the Kansas Pacific Railway. The map is based on the famous Keeler map of 1867, but with a number of additions. It is the first map to show and name the Grand Canyon. The text includes detailed reports of the mineral and agricultural resources along the route in Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. The folding profile, almost always lacking, shows the change in elevation along the entire route, from Missouri to California. It is riddled with important geographic details (passes, gaps, locations of rivers, etc.), as well as man-made landmarks such as sundry army forts and lines already constructed. In all, the profile offers a stunning visual summary of the challenging and dramatic variances in elevation with which the railroad's engineers had to cope. "[Palmer's] report is full of all sorts of information - geographic commentary, engineering detail, and comparative discussions of different routes, with attention to such larger matters as mineral resources, manufacturing resources, and sources of traffic" - Wheat. Palmer rescued James White on this expedition and also gives White's narrative, in his own words, of the remarkable overland expedition and trip through the Colorado Canyon. This copy, like the Graff copy, contains only one folding map. Howes asserts that some copies have three maps. Copies with the map and profile are extremely rare. A fundamental description of the American West. HOWES P54, "aa." WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 1206. GRAFF 3177. SABIN 58383. FARQUHAR 24.

        The Book of Mormon; an Account Written By the Hand of Mormon, upon Plates Taken from the Plates of Nephi (Part I)

      Deseret University By Russell Bros, Salt Lake City 1869 - 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. [8] 116p. . The scarce first rendering of the first part of the Book of Mormon into the Deseret Alphabet. Gilt Deseret lettering on black leather spine over light blue paper covered boads. Title and Text printed in the Deseret Alphabet (see Bancroft, History of Utah, 1889, p. 712-714). Brigham Young realized how difficult English was to learn by foreigners so he decided that the Book of Mormon could be translated into this alphabet making it much easier for foreigners to learn as Mormon Missionaries went to new countries (or for foreign-speaking converts who knew little English). There were also two primers in the new alphabet also designed and cast at the same time. Flake 608; Eborn p. 44. The copies of Part I produced in New York all have a dark blue (or black leather spine) over paper covered boards (the only English is the place of publication information at the foot of the title page). Though historians consider the Deseret Alphabet one of Brigham Young's two worst miscalculations (the other being the attempt to settle at Fillmore, Utah in 1851 instead of Salt Lake City). The use of Isaac Pitman's shorthand book and Egyptian characters was modified by George Watt, an English convert. This alphabet actually created unique pronunications and colloqualisms which led older Mormons to refer to the words "horse, corner and Mormon" as "harse, carner, and Marmon". The books were printed in New York and sent West but the coming of the transcontinental railroad made it a disadvantage for trading with non-Mormons so it began to fall into disuse and with Brigham Young's death in 1877, it became an historical curiosity.
