        Autograph letter signed ("Marguerite") by a Paris citizen to her mother, now fled to Saint-Marcellin. Paris, 29 Nov. [1870].

      1870. Large 8vo. 3 pp. Fine wove paper. With stamped address and note, "par ballon monté". Postmarked Paris 29 November (departure), Saint-Marcellin 5 December (arrival). Balloons provided the first airmail service in history, starting with Blanchard's 1785 flight across the Channel. Decades later, balloons were used to transport mail from Paris during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-72. Sixty-five unguided mail balloons were released in besieged Paris to communicate with the world beyond the besieging forces, of which only two went missing. The term "ballon monté" means the balloon was manned (while unmanned balloons were referred to as "ballon non-monté"). - The present letter provides a vivid account of the situation in the starving city after ten weeks of siege: "[...] nous touchons je crois à une crise décisive, est-ce la victoire? est-ce la défaite [...] ce qui est certain c'est que notre sort se joue en ce momen. toute la nuit le canon a grondé depuis 5 h. c'était un tonnerre et du haut de la maison les éclairs des obus sillonaient le Ciel, c'est un spectacle terrible. c'était une sortie du Géneral Ducro; à midi on n'entendait plus rien, on dit que nous sommes victorieux c'est à dire que nous avons repris Choisy-le-Roi. est-ce vrai, il faut attendre les proclamations de ce soir, un premier succès aurait pour nous une bien grande importance. On dit, mais on dit tant de choses, qu'on a entendu en étant aux avants-postes - le bruit du canon loin loin du côté d'Etampes, les armées de secours approcheraient - elles donc? enfin tout prend fin sur terre, esperons que le malheur est pour nous à son terme et que bientôt, étant débloqués, nous pourrons nous rejoindre [...] J'ai été tentée tout à l'heure de faire l'emplette d'un bifsteck d'ours [...] je regrette aussi d'avoir manqué le kangourou [...] la conversation culinaire est la seule à la mode en ce moment [...] J'espère que l'univers aura horreur de la guerre. Vous au moins êtes loin de tout [...] mais les traces que vous en retrouverez vous suffiront - tout, autour de nous, detruit, brûlé [...]." - Traces of folds; insignificant damage from opening, otherwise fine.

        Eigenh. Manuskript "Ein Weltbund des Deutschtums". O. O. u. D.

      1870. 16 SS. 8vo. Der in schlichten Verhältnissen aufgewachsene Schriftsteller, der auch unter den Pseudonymen Ignotus, Franz Josef Gerhold und Vetter Michel schrieb, war 1870 als Friseurgehilfe nach Wien gekommen, wo er sich rasch im Selbststudium weiterbildete, bald schriftstellernd hervortat und als Mitglied der Wiener literarisch-künstlerischen Gesellschaft sowie Feuilletonredakteur der "Deutschen Zeitung" (seit 1886) für eine nationale Erneuerung des Wiener Theaterlebens eintrat. "In seinen Streitschriften forderte Müller-Guttenbrunn u. a. die Einrichtung einer Volksbühne (Wien war eine Theaterstadt, 1885) und die Gründung eines deutsch-national ausgerichteten Volksbildungsvereins. 1893-96 leitete er das Raimund-Theater und übernahm 1898 das Kaiser-Jubiläums-Stadttheater, wo er seine nationalen Ziele mit Hilfe 'deutschgesinnter' Spielpläne und billigen 'Volksvorstellungen' zu realisieren suchte" (DBE). Nachdem er 1903 die Direktion abgegeben und sich wieder verstärkt seinen literarischen Ambitionen angenommen hatte, bemühte sich der "hervorragende Heimaterzähler mit Vorliebe für kulturgeschichtliche Stoffe" (Kosch II, 1806) "um die Stärkung des National- und Selbstbewußtseins der Banater Schwaben. Als Abgeordneter des österr. Nationalrats trat er seit 1919 auch auf politischer Ebene für seine großdeutschen Ziele ein" (DBE).

        Bear Island Botany Bay

      S. Sedgefield (lith.): c, 1870. slightly creased. Tinted lithograph, 192 x 340 mm., mounted. A charming separately issued lithograph showing Bear Island before it was joined to the mainland at La Perouse, Sydney. A fort was constructed on Bear Island in the 1880s to ward off the perceived threat of an attack on Sydney by Russian forces. The fort still stands today as a Sydney tourist attraction, and is connected to the mainland by the original wooden bridge. Although Raworth uses the name Bear Island on this lithograph, it is generally called Bare Island, named unintentionally by James Cook in 1770 when he described it in his journal as 'a small bare island'W.H.Raworth arrived in Sydney from England around 1867. He was involved in a number of exhibitions including the second Annual Art Exhibition at the New South Wales Academy of Art in 1873. At this time one of his pictures sold for the substantial amount of 42 pounds to the Art Gallery of New South Wales.This view is tranquil and picturesque in the best Raworth tradition.

        [TWO AUTOGRAPH LETTERS, SIGNED, FROM LUCY AUDUBON TO HER NIECE, ELIZABETH JAMES]

      [New York?]; Louisville, 1870. [4]; [2]pp. Octavo, on folded quarto sheets. Old fold lines, lightly soiled. Very good. Two letters written by Lucy Audubon to her niece, Elizabeth Rankin Bakewell James, detailing the hardships of her current circumstances in life. Lucy Bakewell Audubon (1787-1874) was the wife of naturalist John James Audubon. Though she came from a family of wealthy English emigrants, and had a privileged upbringing, she nonetheless plunged headlong into frontier life with Audubon. In 1808 they were married and moved to Kentucky, where they had two children and faced down their first financial ruin. When Audubon decided to embark on his famed project painting and publishing the birds of North America, Lucy took on the role of family provider, working as a teacher. With the completion of Audubon's BIRDS, the family was reunited. In 1841, the Audubons purchased an estate on the Hudson River which they named Minnie's Land. John James Audubon died there in January 1851. Lucy sold many of her husband's original drawings to the New York Historical Society in the decade after his death. The letters here show that she was in some difficult financial straits in the 1860s and 70s. She survived her husband and both of her sons. In the first letter, dated July 26, 1866 (no place given), Lucy writes to her niece, detailing some of her woes. Among these, she notes that she is currently living in rooms in the home of her minister, who himself has very small means of support. She notes that the rest of the family is considerably well off, and a hint of bitterness about lack of support decidedly creeps through in the letter. She writes: "My dear Niece… Were you within walking distance how soon you would see me, but I can not afford to take such a journey, were if I had time, to go and congratulate the dear married couple on their long and happy life, considering the many trials and adversities, we all have had to bear. May the remainder of your days be peaceful and even joyous with your children near you, or within reach, if need should call you. I feel deeply that I can not in the usual way, on this occasion show my affection for the parents, but what with moving, repairing, and fixing our rooms, and Delaney Williams putting me off a payment due the first of July six months longer (perhaps forever) I am curtailed in all my wishes and wants.… I cannot ask Mr Adams to do anything to our little rooms because he took us in to accommodate us altogether, he has no salary except Sunday collections from his little Church, and no where could we find a shelter for our heads at the time…. I was told the other day from a young Lady at Mrs Cary's Boarding School that there were three miss Bakewells there, and that cousin Thomas had left the eldest of them forty thousand dollars. Every one has a right to do as they please with their own. I will not say more for Cousin has helped me some, and I did not look for anything now. Though when I was married I took an order from my father to Uncle for two thousand dollars, being the third time my father had set my Uncle up, this last sum enabled them to buy the Glasshouse; how we took no notice of it. Were not all the branches of the family so well off I should not notice it, even as an observation. I most sincerely hope your sister will come and see me this summer. I cannot say more now than God bless you all." In the second letter here, dated Louisville, May 11, 1870, she writes a letter of thanks for her niece's kindnesses and support, also alluding to a vision problem which had already caused her to retire from the schoolteaching that once supported her family. "My dear Niece. About an hour ago the Express brought me the much desired boots and the maker has succeeded to admiration a little large but in a few days wear I can lace them tighter. Now I can hardly tell you how much I thank you for the trouble you have taken. I should have answers your kind note sooner but waited till my eyes might be better, and I be able to thank you not only for the boots but for your kind invitation which we shall gladly accept when we can afford it, but Harriet does not yet [have] as much [work] here as she did in New York. I may get a little more from the book and if we can shall gladly do so...." The remaining few lines discuss family matters. Also included here is an indenture dated Sept. 1, 1808, for the sale of 837 1/2 acres by Joseph Priestley and Elizabeth Priestley of Northumberland, Co., Pennsylvania to "William Bakewell of Fatland ford in the County of Montgomery," Pennsylvania for land in Lycoming County. Signed by Joseph Priestley and Elizabeth Priestley. Countersigned by Jno. Kidd and Thomas Cooper.

        An album of watercolours of military scenes and soldiers in uniform. [Germany or Austria, c. 1870].

      1870. Folio. 85 large watercolours (200 to 255 mm x 280 to 360 mm). Mounted on laid paper sheets; each watercolour captioned in German and numbered (not in sequence) at foot. Early twentieth century half calf over green roan, spine in compartments, gilt lettering. An extraordinary collection of original watercolours, apparently unpublished, celebrating the creation of the Austro-Hungarian Empire through the military episodes that led to it and the uniforms of the various nations and regiments involved. - The events depicted span from the 1750s to the 1850s, and include scenes from the Battle of Wagram, the skirmish at Spinnerin am Kreuz near Vienna, and the rebellion in Transylvania (Siebenbürgen). Officers in uniform from every corner of the Empire are shown: Prussians, Hungarians, Austrians, Poles, Czechs, Croats, Dalmatians, and Bosnians, with a few examples of local militias and foreign army regiments such as French, Turkish, Russians and British ('Scottish Grenadiers at Waterloo'). While the uniforms are described in great detail, with vivid and bright colouring, the overall style is naïve, with facial expressions and poses sometimes caricatural and grotesque, reminiscent of the celebrated prints by the French Imagerie d'Épinal. The numbers at the foot of each image, which in some instances exceed number 500, suggest that the present selection was assembled from a larger collection, probably prepared for a publication that was never realised. - Occasional short marginal tears, stains and other minor blemishes to watercolours, but generally in excellent condition; binding rubbed. Provenance: the Von Lindeman-Just family, Dresden (bookplate on front free endpaper and lettering on spine); gift from the Baroness Von Lindeman-Just to a relative in Italy (inscription dated 1962 on front free endpaper).

        Meticulous Herbarium of 89 Edible and Medicinal Specimens

      Germany, circa 1870s. Herbarium of 89 authentic botanical specimens, edible and medicinal, neatly mounted to individual leafs with small paper strips, most identified in manuscript captions in German and in Latin, some in fine calligraphy, some also with classification numbers, the lot contained in purpose made string-tied continental boards. Folio. Item measures approximately 37 x 23 cm. Harvested by a meticulous German botanist and centering largely on medicinal and herbaceous plants, this collection includes one nightshade, a purple orchid, the now endangered cornflower, and a specimen from the poppy family. A few examples of the specimens found in this nineteenth century herbarium: Fumara officinales - an herbaceous annual flowering plant in the poppy family, commonly known as fumitory, drug fumitory or earth smoke. It was traditionally thought to be good for the eyes, and to remove skin blemishes. In modern times herbalists use it to treat skin diseases, and conjunctivitis, as well as to cleanse the kidneys. Centaurea cyanus, "Kornblume" or cornflower, which today is endangered in its native habitat owing to agricultural intensification with over-use of toxic herbicides. In herbalism, a decoction of cornflower is effective in treating conjunctivitis, and as a wash for tired eyes.

Orchis maculata, or Early Purple Orchid, now called the Dactylorhiza maculata, known as the heath spotted-orchid or moorland spotted orchid, an herbaceous perennial. The specific Latin name "maculata" (spotted) refers to the stained leaves.

        [Anonymous manuscript titled:] The Early History Of Kilwa. No place, ca. 1870.

      1870. 8vo (ca. 205 x 130 mm). 44 pp. Stitched manuscript written in a legible hand on the recto of the leaves, without a front cover. Historically important chronicle of the Kilwa Sultanate, from the third century to the year 908 according to the Hijri calendar (ca. 10th to 16th centuries in the Gregorian Calendar), drawn from the chronicles collected by the nephew of Fakih Mufalih, a Kilwa dignitary. "The chronology of rulers of the Kilwa Sultanate is reported in a chronicle translated into Portuguese in the 16th century, and recorded by the chronicler João de Barros. There is another surviving chronicle by an unknown author, written in the early 16th century, and compiled in 1862 by (or for) sheikh Moheddin (Majid) of Zanzibar" (Wikipedia). It seems likely that this present chronicle is an early English translation or at least based on the Zanzibar chronicle of 1862. The chapter headings of the present chronicle are as follows: Chapter I: Of the first coming to Kilwa and its foundation by Persian princes of the district of Shiraz; Chapter II: Concerning the troubles of the people of Kilwa with the Matamandili; Chapter III; Concerning the rule of Abu Il Mawahib and giving a short account of his history; Chapter IV: Of the government of the Priest King whose surname was "The Early Rain"; Chapter 5: Of the return of the Sultanate to the house of Abu Il Matthhab; Chapter VI: Of the government of Hassan the son of the Wazir Suleman bin Malik Il'adl the of the Wazir Yarik, and therein the story of the Wazir Mohammed Kiwabi the son of the Sultan the Injured; Chapter VII: Of the government of the Sultan Jathil the son of the Sultan Suleman the Just King the uncle of the Sultan Mohammed Ibu Hosein. "The Kilwa Sultanate was a Medieval sultanate, centered at Kilwa (an island off modern-day Tanzania), whose authority, at its height, stretched over the entire length of the Swahili Coast. It was founded in the 10th century by Ali ibn al-Hassan Shirazi, a Persian prince of Shiraz. His family ruled the Sultanate until the year 1277. It was replaced by the Arab family of Abu Moaheb until 1505, when it was overthrown by a Portuguese invasion. By 1513, the sultanate was already fragmented into smaller states, many of which became protectorates of the Sultanate of Oman. At the zenith of its power in the 15th century, the Kilwa Sultanate owned or claimed overlordship over the mainland cities of Malindi, 25 Inhambane and Sofala and the island-states of Mombasa, Pemba, Zanzibar, Mafia, Comoro and Mozambique (plus numerous smaller places) - essentially what is now often referred to as the "Swahili Coast". Kilwa also claimed lordship across the channel over the myriad of small trading posts scattered on the coast of Madagascar (then known by its Arabic name of Island of the Moon). To the north, Kilwa's power was checked by the independent Somali city-states of Barawa (a self-ruling aristocratic republic) and Mogadishu (the once-dominant city, Kilwa's main rival). To the south, Kilwa's reach extended as far as Cape Correntes, below which merchant ships did not usually dare sail"(Wikipedia). - First page with some toning and a few small ink spots, but overall the manuscript is in very good condition.

        IN FAIRYLAND

      London: Longmans, Green, Reader, & Dyer, 1870. First edition. Occasional light soiling, about fine. sun fading to edges of slipcase. Quite a nice copy of this rare book. First edition. Folio. [5 leaves], 31 leaves printed and numbered on versos only. Illustrated with 16 full-page color plates by Doyle engraved and printed in color by Edmund Evans. Nicely rebound in quarter tan crushed morocco with marbled sides and endpapers, a.e.g. in cloth slipcase. See illustration in Peppin. Fantasy, The Golden Age of Fantastic Illustration, p. 65. "Perhaps the single most popular and influential series of fairy illustrations ever produced." (Johnson. Fantastic Illustration and Design in Britain, 1850-1930, p. 63). "Looking within himself, Doyle found a fantastic, but consistently imagined world in which fairies and elves live in the open air among birds, butterflies, snails, and beetles as large as themselves. If his elves and fairies also like to congregate, their convivalities, unlike those of his massed human beings, are never oppressive. Edmund Evans's fine wood engravings for this volume are the largest that he made during his long career as a color printer." (Gordon Ray. English. No. 146.) "It is generally felt that Richard Doyle rose to his greatest heights with the graceful clusters of humanized and sentimentalized but endearing little elves he created for In Fairy-land. In the case of this book the pictures preceded the text, a situation not uncommon in the history of illustrated children's books." (Gottlieb. Early Children's Book and Their Illustration. No. 168).

Non posso a meno di ripetere / questo pensiero; ma più in là non vedo. L'amico vi dirà dell'Ufficiale che lo / veduto questa mattina. Appena io abbia notizie, le avviso. Se per / caso credete di determinarvi a fare, avvertite-/mi senza indugio. Darò allora i proclami e vi / vedrò subito. Il Governo ha evidentemente paura. E non / osa appigliarsi a misure anteriormente repres-/sive. V' è agitazione, come sapete, anche nel / macinato. Il Governo nondimeno presente il moto da / parte nostra. E questo potrebbe forse modificare / il disegno e dare più importanza alla mia / idea d'assalire le ali, procacciare armi e / portar poi le forze concentrate ed eccitate da / una vittoria sul centro. Ma di questo si / parlerebbe. Vostro tutto Gius M". - "As I have said since we have met for / the first time, I cannot deny that the thought / occurs to me often: ' If we see that / the rising of Piac. shows the opportunity for / the cities of Italy, why could the rising of / Genova not do the same thing?' I cannot stop to repeat / this thought; but I do not see any more in it. The friend will let you know from the Officer that I saw him / this morning. As soon as I have news, I will let you know. In / case you believe you will make up your mind to act, let me know / without delay. I will then give a proclamation and I will / see you immediately. Obviously, the Government is afraid. And it does not / dare to cling to measures which were repres-/sive before. There is agitation, as you know, even in / the crushed. Still, the Government presents the stimulus for / us. And this could maybe change / the plan and give more importance to my / idea of attacking the wings, procuring weapons and / then leading the concentrated and excited forces to / a victory over the centre. But we will talk / about this. Yours entirely Gius M".

A chronicle of the elaborate festivities given for the inauguration of the Suez Canal (Qanat al-Suwais), opened in November 1869 after ten years of construction work - an event attended by the most prestigious occidental figures, finely illustrated by Riou, the Khedive's official painter. In 1854/56 Ferdinand de Lesseps obtained a concession from Sa'id Pasha, the Khedive of Egypt and Sudan, to create a company to construct a canal open to ships of all nations, which would allow ship transport between Europe and eastern Asia without navigation around Africa. Lesseps had used his friendly relationship with Sa'id, which he had developed while he was a French diplomat during the 1830s. In 1863, Sa'id was succeeded by his nephew Ismail, known as The Magnificent, who now oversaw the Egyptian portion of the Canal's construction. On his accession, he refused to ratify the concessions to the Canal company made by Said, insisting on numerous changes upon in the original grant. Ismail then used every available means, by his own powers of fascination and by judicious expenditure, to bring his personality before the foreign sovereigns and public. In 1867 he visited Paris and London, where he was received by Queen Victoria and welcomed by the Lord Mayor. While in Britain he also saw a British Royal Navy Fleet Review with the Ottoman Sultan. In 1869 he again paid a visit to Britain. When the Canal finally opened, Ismail held a festival of unprecedented scope, inviting dignitaries from around the world. Ismail himself performed the grand opening, together with French Empress Eugenie in the Imperial yacht "Aigle", piloted by Napoléon Coste who was bestowed by the Khedive the Order of the Medjidie. - The painter Riou also signed the plates of the second part: a detailed account of the canal construction by Marius Fontane, secretary to Lesseps. 500 copies of Fontane's work were printed, with 200 reserved for the Khedive Ismail, of which this is one. As the Khedive objected to the preface of Fontane's work, which gave credit for the canal to Lesseps, he had removed Lesseps' portrait frontispiece, the preface, and the final six gatherings (which included plates 21-25). - Occasional foxing to plates, otherwise an excellent copy.
