        Autograph Letter Signed "Samuel Baker," to "Dear Sir"].

      1877 - Sandford Orleigh, Newton Abbot (blind stamped letterhead), 5 August 1877. Duodecimo (ca. 15,5x10 cm). 2 pp., with an integral blank leaf. Brown ink on laid paper. Mild fold marks, traces of old mount on verso of the second blank leaf, but overall a very good letter. A private letter by famous African explorer Samuel Baker written in his Sandford Orleigh estate in Newton Abbot, Devon. Baker writes that "it is most kind of Sir Charles and Lady Graves Sawle to extend their hospitality to me (to them a stranger,) and if I should be honored with an invitation from them I shall accept it with pleasure." The persons mentioned by Baker are Sir Charles Brune Graves Sawle, 2nd Baronet of Penrice (1816-1903) and his wife Lady Rose (1818-1914), a friend of the poet Walter Savage Landor. The couple made a trip up the Nile in 1875-1876, which could explain their friendship with Baker. Lady Rose mentioned in her memoire that Samuel Baker and his wife visited Graves-Sawle's estate in Penrice (Cornwall) several times (Grawes Sawle, R. Sketches from Memories, 1833-1896. London, 1908, p. 125-128).

        Cartas á la dona. Noticias exactas detalladas de la Exposició universal de Filadelfia en 1876 y d'un viatxe pels Estats-Units

      Nova-York [New-York]: Estampa de John Smith 4to. 285 pp., illus.. 1877 The first book printed in Catalan in the United States" (according to the title-page) => but really printed in Barcelona. Arus (1845–91), a Catalan playwright and writer for newspapers and other periodical publications, acted here on a request from Arturo Cuyas, the compiler of a highly successful 1876 Spanish-English dictionary that is still in print and the editor of the first Catalan magazine in the United States, La Llumanera (1874–81), a weekly that dealt with everything except politics. Cuyas wanted Arus to supply a "chronicle" of the Philadelphia International Exposition for publication in his magazine, and had J. Garriga, a representative of La Llumanera, send him writings and documents, content and detail, that Arus, who himself never visited the Exhibition, then transformed into a series of 13 "letters" in verse form addressed to Cuyas and signed "Pau Pi y Pla." From their basis in simple "noticias" of the United States, of Philadelphia in particular, and most especially of the wonders of the Centennial Exhibition, the letters => flower into a social and literary study of customs, satirically comparing the those of United States with those of Catalonia. Following several introductory sections, each page of text of the letters is printed within one of a number of => illustrated wood-engraved borders, and each carta is illustrated with one or more comic cut(s), roughly one-third-page in height, highlighting points in the text. The title-page statement that "illustrat ab preciosos dibuixos dels primers artistas catalans" is borne out by the list on pp. 9 and 10 of the => some 70 illustrators who supplied the wood-engraved illustrations and borders. The title-page labels this "Tomo I" but the second volume never appeared. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate => only three U.S. libraries reporting ownership. Late 19th-century quarter red leather with red textured paper sides, round spine with modest gilt tooling and lettering; boards rubbed. Text variably foxed as are the copies with condition statements in the few Spanish library OPACs reporting ownership. From a disparate variety of points of view, a volume => fascinating to contemplate.

        Mountain Meadows Massacre Lithograph

      San Francisco: Pacific Art Company, [1877]. Lithograph. Large color lithograph. Image measures 48 cm by 66 cm (margins included). Very good condition. Some minor wear to the rear. Light sporadic discoloring, more so in the margins. Attractive lithograph depicting a wagon train passing peacefully through Mountain Meadows, Utah Territory, with a small group of Paiute Indians (or Mormon militia men in costume) hidden amidst the rocks and trees, presumably depicting the scene moments before the mass slaughter of the Fancher-Baker emigrant wagon train on September 11, 1857, that would become known as the Mountain Meadows Massacre. Historian Will Bagley (editor of the renowned Kingdom in the West series) used an inferior copy of this image on his Mountain Meadows Massacre book, "Blood of the Prophets" because they were unable to locate an original lithograph. Very few copies of this are known to exist in institutions. This lithograph was produced in the same year as the execution of John D. Lee, who was the only person ever convicted of the atrocities that occurred at Mountain Meadows. This image was most likely printed to exploit the public's continued fascination with the Massacre that claimed the lives of more than 120 men, women and children. Uncommon in any condition.

        Jerusalem. The Emanation of the Giant Albion. 1804

      [London: John Pearson, 1877]. Large 4to, 100 plates, printed in black and white, with black framing lines. Modern quarter brown morocco and cloth boards, a few leaves at the back with slight paper damage in the margin. A wonderful facsimile of copy D (now at Harvard), limited to 100 copies per Bentley and Keynes. Bentley attributed the publication to Chatto but revised it to Pearson in his Blake Books supplement. The Rinder copy reproduced by the Trianon Press is in a smaller format and this large quarto has a much more imposing and appealing presence and seems to be a better facsimile - certainly this copy is clearer and more striking than copy C. Bentley, Blake Books, 76, and Blake Books Supplement, p. 88. As is well known, Blake made five copies of Jerusalem of which only one did he color , the other four all being b/w. A suite of 25 plates was also colored by Blake, and a few posthumous copies were printed in tints.
