        'A Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt Rosalie' [by M.H. Long].

      [Published by Thomas McLean, Printed by the Kell Brothers, 1869]. 18.5 x 32.25in mount opening. Chromolithograph, laid down on backing board, with old mount, two tiny scratches in rock in top right, small indentation near initials in right bottom corner, and small associated flaws, This is another of Bierstadt's 'Great Pictures' completed by January 1866, a companion to 'Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak'. As his rival Frederic Church did, the format for a 'Great Picture' was to produce a large panoramic landscape and exhibit it to a wide public at a one picture touring exhibition, which was accompanied by explanatory brochures and promoted by reproductions. Even though privately owned it was exhibited at McLean's London gallery in 1867. In the same year, Bierstadt took it with 'Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak' 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. 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 original painting was purchased by the Englishman Thomas Kennard for $20,000. It is now in Brooklyn Museum. In 1863, Bierstadt visited Colorado, where he made studies for this picture. The mountain is named after Rosalie Osborne Ludlow who Bierstadt married in 1866. In 1869, when the picture was exhibited at the Paris salon Napoleon III awarded Bierstadt the Legion d'Honneur. Reference: ANDERSON, N. & FERBER, L.S. 'Albert Bierstadt Art & Enterprise' Exhibition Catalogue. Brooklyn Museum, 1991. This chromolithograph is discussed on pp. 274-275, figure 90, and illustrated in colour, Plate 79 on p. 292.

        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.

        Grant's bold franking signature on an envelope addressed to his friend, newspaperman George W. Childs, who helped fund Grant's Jersey Shore vacation cottage

      [Washington], c. 1869-1873. 5.75" x 3.25". "His franking signature, ""U.S. Grant,"" as President accomplished on a 5.75"" x 3.25"" with ""Executive Mansion"" engraved at the top right corner, addressed in his hand to ""Mr. Geo W. Childs Cor 22d & Walnut St. Philadelphia, Pa."" With a black Washington, October 17 cancellation. From the Edward Stern Collection. Offered with copies of the description and image of the frank as published in Stern's 1936 volume, History of the 'Free Franking' of Mail in the United States. Light to moderate soiling, several small tears along top margin do not affect text, else very good. Offered together with a large mounted albumen photograph, 10"" x 8"", by Pach Bros., New York, 1873, titled ""GEN. GRANT at GEO. W. CHILDS COTTAGE / LONG BRANCH 1873"". The image depicts Grant seated with his wife Julia and their friend, George W. Childs, at his cottage in Long Branch, New Jersey. Back layer of mount removed, photo service stamps and inked notations on verso, creased at corners, horizontal crease and small tear at bottom margin do little to detract from the overall presentation.Ulysses Grant was the last sitting President to enjoy the franking privilege. Due to rampant abuse, Congress outlawed the practice for all federal officials in 1873 (only to reinstate it for themselves soon afterwards). However sitting executives were never again bestowed this privilege. In 1864, together with Anthony Drexel, for $20,000, the Baltimore-born Childs (1829-1894) purchased the ailing Philadelphia Public Ledger which had seen its circulation drop over its Copperhead leanings. Childs changed the editorial policy to wholehearted support for the Union and he soon grew the paper into one of the most influential papers in the country. Childs was also widely known for his philanthropy. In 1884, he loaned Walt Whitman $500 to help him purchase his home in Camden, New Jersey. Childs also funded numerous monuments including a memorial fountain for William Shakespeare in Stratford-on-Avon as well as a monument to Edgar Allen Poe in Baltimore.Childs was also a close friend of Ulysses Grant. In 1869, he, together with Drexel, George Pullman, and Moses Taylor pooled their money to purchase a summer cottage for the Grant family in Long Branch, New Jersey in 1869. Grant's cottage was located directly next to Childs' and the pair enjoyed numerous summers together at the Jersey Shore. The franking signature comes from the esteemed collection of Edward Stern. Offered with copies of the description and image of the frank as published in Stern's 1936 volume, History of the 'Free Franking' of Mail in the United States."

Bound in red half morocco with corners, back with five nerves, gilded head, contreplats and paper guards at the tank, preserved covers and backs, some rare spots, fitting beige canvas modern binding. Precious autograph of the author George Sand: "Madame George Sand tribute of respectful admiration Leconte de Lisle " From his earliest writings, Leconte de Lisle was placed directly under the influence of George Sand, to whom he dedicated two early poems to George Sand and Lelia in solitude. This relationship gradually turned into mutual admiration, as George Sand will pay tribute to the author in an article in Time July 31, 1872: "Mr. Leconte de Lisle is also a great poet, and so strong that it is original became head of the school. We owe him a true recognition? it would have even national recognition. » This shipment form of tribute, reflects the esteem and mutual admiration that is worn by the two authors.

Précieux envoi autographe de Leconte de Lisle à George Sand : « à Madame G. Sand hommage de respectueuse admiration Leconte de Lisle » Dès ses premiers écrits, Leconte de Lisle se plaça directement sous l'influence de George Sand, à qui il dédia deux poèmes de jeunesse : à George Sand et Lélia dans la solitude. Cette filiation se transforma progressivement en admiration réciproque, puisque George Sand rendra hommage à l'auteur dans un article du Temps du 31 juillet 1872 : « M. Leconte de Lisle est grand poète aussi, et d'une si forte originalité qu'il est devenu chef d'école. On lui doit une vraie reconnaissance ? il faudrait que ce fût une reconnaissance nationale. » Cet envoi, sous forme d'hommage, rend compte de l'estime et de l'admiration réciproque que se portaient les deux auteurs.   Très bel hommage littéraire sur un exemplaire joliment relié.

      Great Britain, 1869. Great Britain, 1869. Manuscript recollections of a British naval officer in which are described three fateful and consecutive voyages having taken place circa 1869-70, the first ship being wrecked near Cape São Roque on the coast of Brazil, one set ablaze by its cargo of coal near India, and another swept away and destroyed by a hurricane upon landing on Réunion Island. 8vo. 31 pages combined, comprising two separate accounts and a summary linking them. Single leafs, assorted stationery, measuring approximately 20 x 25 cm. Some age-toning and creasing, otherwise in very good condition, Adventure, catastrophe, and relief from foreign vessels, are an ongoing theme in three separate voyages taken by one man in 1869-70, which ultimately resulted in three devastated ships. The writer is not identified, although his accounts suggest that he was either a captain or first master to the captain. He and his crew are British, and working the trade routes. The writer finding himself shipwrecked on rocks of Cape of Saint Roch in 1869, disputing and pleading with Brazilian coast guards for passage (with the aid of local fisherman as translator), the first voyage had departed London for Australia, but encountered difficulties along the coast of South America. A most interesting adventure ensued, the following day sailing by river to Macau, in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, and from proceeding to Pernambuco on a merchant's steamer. On board he notices prisoners being conveyed to the penal colony of Fernando Noronha, wealthy Brazilian slave owning plantation owners, and a young African boy performing difficult duties onboard. On land, a domestic dispute over a woman results in a murder. At last, after much adventure, at Pernambuco the crew dispersed by finding employment on other British vessels. [8vo. 9 pages, being an recollection of a voyage to Brazil and a shipwreck, circa 1869.] Excerpts from the manuscript: "... we made Cape São Roque, the NE corner of Brazil and had to tack... one night about 10 o'clock the ship struck violently on a rock below the water... the ship's bottom being crushed in so that she was immediately filled with water, but fortunately for us remained fast on the rocks..." "... on shore... were Guarda Costas, and the officer in charge would not permit us to proceed any further... we were shipwrecked British sailors, we would do no harm, but there were arms in the boat ready for use..." "At this time slavery had not been wholly abolished in Brazil. In these hot countries where slavery existed, the white men did not so much to raise the moral standard of living among those who did the daily work. After two days stay there, we sailed on the schooner for Ceará, where we arrived two days later..." "... on deck there were stores, male and female, some prisoners on their way to Fernando Noronha [Fernando de Noronha, a penal colony of Brazil]... there were also... Ladies & Gentlemen... Brazilian planters from up country districts... Every morning a negro boy carried a large iron pail into the saloon, in there was some burning coal from the furnace, on top of this some well tarred rope were placed... he carried the pail with its smoldering contents into each sleeping cabin and stirred up the contents... drove away flies and mosquitoes" "... This was 40 years ago when the world was smaller and intercourse between far countries difficult, tedious and expensive in comparison with travelling either by sea or land in 1905... After we arrived in Pernambuco, we were quickly dispersed, as there were several British vessels there acquiring officers & seamen, so the services of our crew were in demand." The second voyage, which began on an unnamed "magnificent frigate" of British origin, carrying a cargo of coal from Scotland to Bombay, resulted in the frigate catching fire from her cargo and burning at sea. Her crew was rescued by a French vessel named Emma, which was en route to Calcutta, then returning to Réunion. [8vo. 12 pages, being a recollection of a voyage on which the ship was consumed by conflagration at sea, circa 1869-70] Excerpts from the manuscript: "... we left the Clyde in tow of a steam tug, bound to Bombay, with a cargo of 1600 tons of coal. After passing the Cumbrac's a fine northerly wind sprung up... I was much pleased with the way our crew went about their work, so smart and quietly... I am writing of 35 years ago... Friday morning at 6 o'clock we had cast off from Greenoch pier... then being in the blue Atlantic the steward having occasion to go down to the lower store room found four young lads who had stowed themselves away, having bribed the old night watchman..." "We had a tedious passage to the Equator... we came up to a barque with her British flg up, Union down... They were quite out of food having been on reduced allowance for some time..." "... one morning a strong smell of coal gas pervaded throughout the ship... our cargo of coals was on fire from spontaneous combustion... the crew could not remain below beyond a very short time, however we struggled on with our efforts till the afternoon when gas was too strong..." "...a vessel came in sight... She was the Emma of Nantes. Captain Cross from Réunion in ballast bound to Calcutta. He came on board... expressing... our ship was doomed... promised to stay by us... The fire incidentally increased in force..." "The forecastle deck blown right out, it was just after the Emma left, and in these latitudes 3 ºS darkness quickly follows... the crew providentially escaped any serious injury & the master steward having just entered the cabin were scorched, cut & bruised among the cabin wreckage... no lives lost. The Frenchman sent his boat to us at once... we had prepared to leave and ask if to be received on board the Emma, which we were, in the kindest and most hospitable manner possible..." "... what only 24 hours before, had been a magnificent frigate... now it was only a floating bulk flaming furiously, just a floating volcano." "The French crew of 13 being now increased by 28 additional mouths to feed and water, it beckoned in all to be careful... On the 3rd evening... the Emma being in ballast was sailing fast, we sighted a ship ahead..." "...to the deck and found myself surrounded by a crowd of brown men, many of whom were very scantily clothed... The vessel was Arab - belonging to Muscat and was from Jeddah... crowded with Malay pilgrims returning to Sumatra from a pilgrimage, he belonged to Pondicherry... some quantity of water could be spared, they would let us have it, but they had nearly 400 people on board..." ".. they were very hospitable bringing me tea in a glass, and cigars also... The captain & navigating officers escorted me to the cabin to see their chart, wanting me to give them the true position..." "Crowded with return Malayo pilgrims returning to Sumatra... I remained about 2 hours quite comfortable on an Arab ship's quarter deck, a hostage for a couple of water casques... I was glad to get back to the Emma." In the final document, headed "A Sailor's Experience of Sea Life," the naval officer summarizes the aforementioned events, starting with the Brazil incident and subsequent encounters in South America. He then describes the fate of the Emma, a third nautical disaster, this time by hurricane. Recounting his own unique experiences within the circumstances, occasionally providing some new details, he connects the three consecutive disasters with the presence of one man. [8vo. 10 pages.] Excerpts from the manuscript: "It was a unique experience for me to be alone among just a crowd of E. Indians in an Arab ship... Captain Cross with his ship's company doing all he could render to us comfortable... The British government presented Captain Cross with a gold chronometer watch for his kindness to us. " "... Sad to relate, the Emma having returned with a cargo rice to Reunion, while discharging there, a hurricane came up, the Emma was blown away from the anchorage. She never returned, neither was anything heard of her, she was lost with all her crew. Captain Cross being on the shore... was the only member of her crew to return to France." "Twice shipwrecked in so short a time, being just 3 months between the two disasters. The same man had been wrecked by fire - the voyage before he had joined at Greenwich so that gave 3 shipwrecks in one year, the last one fatally so for him. Some folks would say he had been a very unlucky man to have on board, but I dare say, our ship would have been burned and the Emma last seen had that man not been there at all.". Very Good.

        Le 26 Octobre

      Depot Central Chez Madre, Paris 1869 - 12mo, 32 [1] pp, contemporary or early rebind in brown percaline with red leather spine label lettered in gilt; original orange wraps, bearing a printed title pastedown to front panel, preserved and bound in. Edition unstated, but according to Noel, one of 900 copies printed. A second edition was produced later the same year, incorporating a response to the text by Keratry. Inscribed by Grousset at the title page to "Jules Richard"; the title page bears a "timbre imperial" stamp. Near fine. A manifesto by Grousset, who was at the time the editor of Le Marseillase, following the elections that May which would lead to the dissolution of the house. Grousset would soon after the publication of this work become a member of Paris Commune, and after its fall was deported to New Caledonia, where he would eventually escape. During his time away from France Grousset spent some time on the west coast of the US, and the southern Oregon coast would become the setting of his dystopian tale Le Cinq Cents Millions de Begum, which would eventually be published under Jules Verne's name. Grousset was unable to publish under his own name at the time due to his involvement with Paris Commune, and the publisher Hetzel had Jules Verne rewrite it. The book was the first to be published under Verne's name in his lifetime that struck a pessimistic note about the future of human technology, and the book anticipated the development of long range missiles. Verne and Grousset would go on to write a couple of books together, and Grousset would also write several other science fiction tales under pseudonym. The inscription may be M. Jules Richard, the military historian - if so, a minor but fascinating Paris Commune association, as that Richard published the first biography of Cluseret, also a member of the Commune.
