        Original United States Flag, issued after the admission of the State of Colorado

      The 38th state joined the union on August 1, 1876 (thereafter often called the â??Centennial Stateâ?). This flag measures approximately 17 x 23 1/2â?, printed on what appears to be silk; some stains, minor fading and fraying; very good. Probably an early example: 34 of the stars are arranged on the blue background in a circle, an additional star in each corner. The official flag adopted on July 4th, 1877 and in use for the next 13 years arranged the representative stars in horizontal rows of 8 stars/ 7 stars/ 8 stars/ 7 stars/ 8 stars; with the standard red and white stripes representing the 13 original states.

        SCRAPBOOK OF COL. HENRY LITTLE OF BANGOR, MAINE, CONTAINING NUMEROUS ITEMS OF HORTICULTURAL AND POMOLOGICAL INTEREST].

      [Bangor. 1846-1876]. - Approximately [89] leaves, pasted with numerous clippings. Several small pamphlets or other pieces laid or pasted in. Folio. Original three-quarter sheep and boards. Spine and corners heavily worn, boards heavily worn. Leaves loose or loosening. Light foxing and soiling. Good. Henry Little (b. 1788) was the proprietor of Henry Little & Co., a Bangor nursery specializing in fruit trees, which flourished in the 1840s and 1850s. He was a veteran of the War of 1812 and was present at Castine when it was captured by the British. In 1829, then residing in Bucksport, he joined the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. Little moved to Bangor in 1836, where he established his nursery and became a leading figure in Maine horticulture. His life was spent in dedicated pursuit of the best fruit varieties for New England culture, and he wrote numerous articles on the subject which he contributed to local and national periodicals. He was a founder and long-time president of the Bangor Horticultural Society, president of the Maine Board of Agriculture, and a regular Maine delegate to national pomological conventions. In 1873, Col. Little moved to Boston to be near his children, at which time he was presented with a gold-headed cane by the citizens of Bangor. ^His scrapbook contains numerous clippings of his horticultural articles, some of which were published anonymously. Also included in the scrapbook are various addresses, his reports of conventions and exhibitions, his accounts of Canadian travel, an occasional letter written to him, articles of interest, poems, prints, and other similar items. His annotations are evident throughout. Among the more interesting individual items are a manuscript diagram of Little's property in Bangor, showing positions of buildings and gardens, all labeled, and a trimmed but still striking broadside advertisement for Little's nursery (dated 1846), with the fruits hand- colored, possibly by Little himself. A tantalizing aspect is that Little used an earlier account book containing his nursery accounts to create this scrapbook, which, though obscured by the current contents, could be revealed by careful conservation. ^A fascinating artifact from this important Maine horticulturalist.

Leather-backed dark green decorative cloth gilt. Inner hinge starting very slightly, but a very good clean copy. "A book to be set apart and in the best company.

Walton's writings household words - his simplicity, naivite and honest benevolence." (Westwood & Satchell). "We have received many requests for this classic Victorian memoir. William Henderson's book is a richly entertaining account of fishing adventures, mostly in the North (the author was a carpet manufacturer from Durham) on such rivers as the Wear, Coquet and Tweed. Henderson knew some legendary fly-tyers of the time, including John Younger, the St Boswells shoemaker and author, James Wright of Sprouston (to whom we owe the Greenwell's Glory among other historic patterns), and Percival S. Wilkinson, whose famous salmon fly was regarded for years as the essential Tweed medicine." (Flyfisher's Classic Library catalogue, 2003).

(Verlagswerbung). Nissen ZBI, 2713. - Philipp Leopold Martin (1815 - 1885) war ein deutscher Naturforscher, Ornithologe und Tierpräparator. Obwohl Autodidakt, war er einer der bedeutendsten Tierpräparatoren seiner Zeit. Er gilt als der Begründer der modernen Dermoplastik und als Pionier des modernen, der Volksbildung verpflichteten Naturkundemuseums. Auf ihn geht u. a. die Einführung von "Dioramen" zurück. Das sind große "Schaukästen" die Tiergruppen vor gemaltem Hintergrund in ihrer natürlichen Umgebung zeigen, wie sie auch heute noch in zahlreichen Museen zu sehen sind. In seiner Aufsatzreihe „Das deutsche Reich und der internationale Thierschutz" verwendete er als Erster, bereits 1871 den Begriff „Naturschutz" in seiner heutigen Bedeutung und wurde damit zum einem der Vordenker des Naturschutzes in Deutschland. Sein hier vorliegender Magnum Opus war über Jahrzehnte hinweg das grundlegende Standardwerk für Tierpräparatoren.
