Various sizes. VICTIM OF A FRENCH PRIVATEER. This is a fascinating collection chronicling an episode of the "Quasi-War" between the US and France. The Barque 'Mary" which hailed out of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, was attacked and boarded off the coast of Savannah, Georgia. An article in "The Balance and Columbian Repository, No. 28, Vol. 14, July 9, 1805," reported the harrowing events as told by the ship's Master, William Balch, "…our crew were ordered on board the privateer, and threatened with flogging from the captain down to the boy. One of the hands was brought to the gun, with a rope around his neck... The Captain was also threatened, and they were on the point of lashing his hands when the boat came alongside with the money….they robbed us of...almost every thing they could lay their hands on and whatever they could not take away they destroyed…leaving scarce enough for our subsistence." Documents include:1. Memorial Petition of the heirs of ship owner Edward Cutts and Ship's Master, George Balch, to the "Honorable Board of Commissioners appointed under the act of congress…," notarized and dated 3rd day of January, 1833, detailing the attack on the Mary and an account of money and cargo stolen. It reads in part: "That on the close of the same day of said vessel's departure from Jamaica… a small sail appeared to the eastward which proved to be a privateer and in chase of said Barque…the said privateer came up with and fired a shot over said Barque, hoisted French colors and ordered the Captain of said Barque to send his boat or board of said privateer or they would sink the Barque." Edward Cutts (1763-1824) was a Portsmouth merchant and ship owner, and the son of Capt. Samuel Cutts and Anna (Holyoke). He served as a selectman, representative of the legislature, collector of revenue, and Justice of the Peace for Rockingham County. 2. Original Field Protest, dated 1805, which reads in part: "Vessel in passage from Jamaica to Portsmouth - boarded by French privateers 21st May 1805, robbed of…$2,250 in species..3. Autograph Letter, Signed (Henry W. Kinsman), reading in part: "The Commissioners on French Claims meet at Washington on the third Monday (the 21st) of October next, at which time it is necessary to substantiate your claim." Henry Willis Kinsman (1803-1859) graduated from Dartmouth College in 1822, and read law with Daniel Webster (1782-1852), with whom he was a partner in 1826. Kinsman represented Boston in the State Legislature, from 1833-1835. 4. Policy of Assurance underwritten by William Gardner, insuring Edward Cutts of Portsmouth for the sum of "Three thousand Dollars on the Barque Mary, at & from Bristol (in Great Britain) to her port of delivery in the United States - with liberty to go for Salt." William Gardner (1751-1834) was a frequent underwriter who collaborated with other individuals to insure ships. Gardner began his career in the mercantile trade as an apprentice to Joshua Wentworth. He did commissary work during the Revolution and after the war was appointed Loan and Pension officer of New Hampshire by George Washington. He was replaced by John Pierce during the John Adams administration but was later reappointed by Thomas Jefferson. 5. Memorandum of a Card Presented to the Hon. Simon Cameron, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, reading in part: I am asked to state in brief the strongest point of fact or argument in support of the Bill now pending for the relief of our citizens who suffered from french Spoliation on their commerce, between the 1st of January 1792, and July 31, 1801. And I answer thus… Agency of French Spoliation Claims…January 15, 1872." James Hyman Causten, Sr. (1788-1874) came from a merchant family of baltimore. A Naval veteran of the War of 1812, Causten began his legal career as claims agent for for French Spoliation in 1826.6. Senate Bill S. 101, "A Bill to provide for the ascertainment and satisfaction of claims of American citizens for spoliations committed by the French prior to the thirty-first day of July, one thousand eight hundred and one." Voted on and passed to a second reading in the 1st Session of the 31st Congress. 7. Senate Act H.R. 117, "Read, and passed to a second reading and ordered to be printed… An act to provide for the ascertainment of claims of American citizens or spoliations committed by the French prior to July 31, 1801." H.R. 117 was vetoed by President Franklin Pierce February 17, 1855.

      Jerusalem, Rom u.a., 1848-1872. - Giuseppe Valerga studierte am Albenga Seminar und an der Sapienza Universität von Rom und empfing am 17. Januar 1836 die Priesterweihe. Er war für die Sacra Congregatio de Propaganda Fide tätig, insbesondere kümmerte er sich um die Chaldäisch-Katholische Kirche. Papst Pius IX. ernannte ihn 1847 zum Patriarchen von Jerusalem, dem einzigen katholischen Patriarchen im Osten, welcher dem römischen Ritus angehörte. Die Bischofsweihe wurde ihm am 10. Oktober 1847 durch den Pontifex selbst gespendet. Es ist überliefert dass der Papst hierbei über den gewaltigen Bart des Priesters staunte und diesbezüglich äußerte: „Schon dieser Bart allein verdient eine ganz besondere Auszeichnung!". Von 1847 bis zu seinem Tode 1872 war er zudem Großmeister des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab. Er starb an den Folgen einer Typhuserkrankung und wurde in der Kirche des Patriarchats beigesetzt. - Die vorliegende Korrespondenz behandelt sowohl lokal Ereignisse als auch weitreichende politische und kirchliche Entwicklungen. Zur Sprache kommt dabei u.a. auch der Besuch Kaiser Franz Josephs im Heiligen Land (November 1869), bei dem Valerga allerdings wegen seiner Teilnahme am 1. Vatikanischen Konzil nicht persönlich anwesend sein konnte. - Der Empfänger der auf Italienisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Sprache: Italienisch Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Distribution of Australasian volutes.Sydney, Alexander W. Douglas, 1872. 8vo. Contemporary blue paper wrappers.

      WorldCat (6 copies, all but 1 in Australia); not in Ferguson. English-language accounts of the distribution of 48 species of sea snails of the genus Voluta around Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and other southwest Pacaific islands, sometimes with descriptive notes on variations in form or colouration. He also comments on the beauty of some species. Several species discussed were newly discovered by Cox himself. With a 4-page introductory note, a table of contents and an alphabetical index. Writing in 1872, Cox already notes that the once common Voluta magnifica , whose shell can grow to about 30 cm in length, has been so highly prized by collectors that it is now hard to find. He also describes several other spieces as formerly abundent but now rare. With the last (blank) and first leaves foxed, and an old vertical fold through the leaves, but still in good condition. The wrappers are foxed and waterstained, with the spine tattered. A remarkable record of the distribution of 48 species of Australasian sea snails in the mid-19th centruy.

"Die glücklichen Resultate welche Billroth in den Jahren 1870 und 1871 bei seinen wegen Fremdköpern ausgeführten Oesophagotomien erzielte, überzeugten ihn, das die operativen Eingriffe an der Speiseröhre auch die Exstirpation der Carcinome auszudehnen seien, und bestimmten ihn deshalb, im Jahre 1870 auf Grundlage von Tierexperimenten den Vorschlag zu machen, den Oesophagus bei hoch gelegenen Carcinomen zu reseciren."

"Miller took the six days of creation as synonymous with six periods, and sublimed them into representative visions of the progress of creation." - The Dictionary of National Biography. 1 & 2.

Raised in the 19th-century fundamentalism of the Scottish Presbyterian church, he took up geology just when the old biblical chronology of creation seemed to be caving in. Throughout his life he struggled with the account in Genesis. His last book was his summa theologica. He made six epochs of the six days of biblical creation. He detailed each one with his vast knowledge of geologic and fossil formations. It was conservative stuff by our lights. No hint of evolution. No question about the biblical flood. Still, he was seen as dangerously liberal for stretching 24-hour days into geologic epochs. He studied the size of Noah's ark and decided it wasn't big enough to hold all the species. Therefore, the flood could not have been world-wide. It was a ceremony of compromise. And he finished by saying, "I know not of a single truth that militates against the minutest [details of Genesis]." Despite that, he also says something that shows profound good sense. He says of people who "have sought to deduce from [the Bible] what it was not intended to teach -- the truths of physical science, -- they have fallen into extravagant error."" - John Lienhard; Engines of Ingenuity, Episode 1049: Hugh Miller. While I can find no record in WorldCat for this set, it is clearly a combination of the two-volume Life and Letters, and the ten-volume Works set, but with spine numbers 1-12 starting with the Life And Letters work, first published in 1871. As for the date of the set, the final title-page date is 1872, and Charles Duren Gould died in 1875 and his firm ceased operation that year. Miller "was the best of the critics of evolutionary theories from what we would call a fundamentalist point of view. His book is refreshing in that he neither argues simply for a First Cause, nor does he distort the Biblical account in order to make it fit. He rejected evolutionary theories because he believed in man's moral freedom and immortality." - David M Knight; Natural Science Books in English 1600-1900; page 195. Uncommon period set of the works of a significant Victorian thinker and scientist, struggling to reconcile his religious beliefs with the advance of scientific knowledge. ; 12 vols pages .

        1872 ALS mentioning British General William Munro's service in the Crimean War

      n.p., December 1872. 5.375" x 8.625". "2pp ALS addressed to "My dear Gerald" and signed "O.E. Snow" near bottom of second page. Letter is indistinctly dated December 1872. In near fine condition, with expected light folds and a few stray crayon and pencil marks. Each page measures 5.375" x 8.625".Contemporary military figures, British politics, and ship engineering are the main subjects of this chatty and sardonic letter. It is signed "Snow", who was probably a member of the Royal Corps of Engineers. (This is deduced by the passing reference to: "You will see perhaps an amount in that regular Royal Engineer Journal of my report in the works, +c".) Snow's correspondent might have been Lieutenant General Sir Gerald Graham (1831-1899). This can be deduced from the letter's reference to the Crimean War, a conflict in which Graham served, and the letter writer's salutations promised to "Mrs. Graham", wife of the addressee.Graham, a British career soldier, had a connection to "Munro 39th Regt. + the trenches" likely in the context of the Crimean War. General William Munro (1818-1880) served in India, Gibraltar, Ireland, Canada, and in the "trenches" of Crimea. Like Munro, Graham dedicated his life to military service, defending British interests in China, Egypt, and Sudan. Snow also mentions HMS Cockatrice commander Captain George Digby Morant (1837-1921) and his wife Sophia Georgina Eyres Morant (died 1911). The Cockatrice was a Britomart-class steam-propelled and sail-rigged gunboat, launched in 1860. By 1872, the year this letter was written, Captain Morant commanded the vessel in the Mediterranean. Snow later provides very opinioned commentary on ship construction, probably in relation to the Cockatrice. Snow alludes to recent elections in which a "lazy" politician named Creyke defeated another named Synge. Later, he questions the mental lucidity of a politician named Chapman, but then sarcastically concludes that those with "stereotyped ideas [should] be always in office". Most of the letter content can be found below:"Thank you for your letter I think perhaps it is a pity Synge lost the election, for I fear that Creyke will be lazy. Glad to hear of the other olive branch. I nearly had an accident in my house of the same nature Mrs. Morant wife of Capt. Morant of Cockatrice Gun boat only left me a day or two before the event which however was an unfortunate one. Do not talk to me of that wretched egg bound Jowl (?), then her teeth sticking up prominent, the hunches [sic] are barely to be seen in some places. The north side is quite untouched. You will see perhaps an amount in that regular Royal Engineer Journal of my report in the works, +c. ... I hope that job of - is indefinitely postponed. Evart's was too bad, regular change round. I hear that Chapman is more and more grieved by his wife + his imbecility more + more apparent. You might to hear had a berth long ago. They should a few even with stereotyped ideas be always in office. Chapman would even forget your - to him about Munro 39th Regt. + the trenches ... "An uncensored glimpse into 1870s Britain!"

        Kapital'. Kritika Politicheskoi Ekonomii

      St. Petersburg: N. P. Poliakov, 1872 First edition in Russian, the first translation to any language of "Das Kapital". First edition points include comma in table of contents for p.73 and an 'e' at the end of line 40, p. 65. Arguably, the most influential text of the 19th century whose impact continues to be felt today. "Amongst the most influential pieces of writing in world history" (International Institute of Social History). Marx expounded his major scientific discovery: the principle of the dual nature of work, consisting of the product, the famous theory of surplus value ( value ), the rationale of the materialist conception of history and trends of capitalist accumulation. Because of the unexpected popularity of the book, and the subsequent ban in the 1890s, this edition of 3000 copies was soon exhausted within a year and the book became very rare. The German translation took 5 years to sell 1000 copies. Later, Marx noted the excellence of the Russian translation. In 1880, he wrote to F.A. Sorge saying that of all countries, the "Capital" had been read and appreciated most fully in Russia. Skillfully rebound by Green Dragon Bindery to match the non descript binding that was originally on this copy of the book, new endpapers and minimal paper touch ups on the half title, which is present in this copy. A previous owner has scratched out their name (not a book one would want their name in in late 19th c. Russia) and is remarkably clean and bright through out. An exceptional copy for this fragile and important title. With a custom clam shell protective case. Private seller located in California.
