Nordenskiold, Adolf Erik
Eskilstuna Sweden, ca 1878. Straight razor that folds into the handle. The blade is made of stainless steel and is marked with the town of manufacture in Sweden. The blade is in excellent condition and could be used today. The handle is made of perhaps a bakelite material and is in excellent condition. Someone has scratched into the handle a No. 3. The razor fits into the original paper covered cardboard box. This is another interesting personal artifact from the Fred Goldberg Collection. The item is listed in the Goldberg catalogue of artifacts and he gives the provenance as Adolf Erik Nordenskiold and specifically from the Vega Expedition. Accompanying the item is a copy of a letter of provenance from Fred's widow, Gunilla explaining the family history. The razor as you would expect was from the famous Swedish town of Eskilstuna who were making razors for many years. I am not sure if the whole expedition crew were issued with razors like this or every individual brought their own. Just think, the next proud owner could use the razor Nordenskiold used on the Expedition! 1878

Brod, Max, Schriftsteller (1884-1968).
An den Schriftsteller Erich Mühsam (1878-1934) in Berlin-Charlottenburg: "[...] ich danke für Ihre lieben Zeilen. Aber ich selbst bin nicht der rechte Mann zum Vorträge arrangieren. Ich habe keine Verbindungen in Prag und suche sie nicht, denn es ist eine sehr banausische Stadt. Ich lebe ohne Geselligkeit und ohne Vereine und sehr entfernt von Finanzleuten und Mäcenen. Nach mir selbst zu schließen, ist viel Interesse für Sie da. Das heißt: ich habe Interesse für Sie, ich schätze Ihren sehr eruptiven 'Krater', Ihre kraftvollen Verse. - Ob noch sonst viele Leute in Prag so wie ich denken, kann ich leider nicht beurteilen. - Das einzige, was ich für Sie tun kann, ist: Ihnen hiemit die Adressen der Schriftsteller angeben, die in Prag wirklich Einfluß haben und sich am öffentlichen Leben beteiligen: 1.) Dr. Hugo Salus [1866-1929 ...] 2.) Paul Leppin [1878-1945 ...] 3.) Verein der Schriftsteller 'Concordia' [...] 4.) Lese und Redehalle der deutschen Studenten [...] Ich bin ein geplagter Postbeamter, der sieben Stunden täglich im Büreau sitzt und nicht Zeit für seine primitivsten künstlerischen Bedürfnisse findet. - So sehr es mich freuen würde, Sie in Prag und bei mir als Gast zu sehen, - ich habe momentan drei Bretter vor dem Kopf, ich kann nichts unternehmen. Seien Sie deshalb nicht böse [...]" - Mühsams Gedichtband "Der Krater" war 1909 erschienen. Im selben Jahr zog er nach München-Schwabing. Hier gründete er die dem Sozialistischen Bund angehörenden Gruppen "Tat" und "Anarchist".

BOHM, Charles
Charles Bohm, Denver, 1878. Quarto portrait album. Measuring 8" x 9.5". Full brown morocco-grained sheep with belt pattern on the boards. Album with slots for cabinet photographs. Contains 48 albumen cabinet measuring approximately 4.25" x 6.5". We haven't removed each portrait but of the ones that we saw most bear the printed mark of Denver photographer Charles Bohm; another bears the mark of Bohm and Perry, a partnership that lasted from 1872-1875. Some rubbing on the boards, the clasp is lacking, a few of the slots have small tears, and some smudging and foxing on some of the slotted pages, thus overall very good, the images are mostly near fine. All but a few of the images are identified in ink below the image, a few are signed or inscribed on the back. The personal photo album of Charles Bohm, a photographer, engraver, entrepreneur, and property developer in Denver. He opened his studio in Denver in 1872, and at one point employed noted western photographer of Native Americans Frank Rinehart (the partner of William Henry Jackson). The album contains portraits of Bohm, his wife and children, as well as his close circle of friends and their families. Bohm seems to have socialized with a group of ambitious young men who were involved in coal mining and railroads, and the final image in the album is of six men (each also represented by one or more solo images in the album) seated together in mining outfits, each identified, and signed on the back. Records can be found for most of them: Thomas W. Moffat (secretary and treasurer of the Golden, Boulder and Caribou Railroad), … [Click Below for Full Description]

Aufgrund der guten Beziehungen des ersten Dolmetschers von Naser al-Din Schah, des Armeniers Mirza Dawud (David) Khan, zum österreichischen Hof in Wien und der Verbindungen seines ehemaligen Leibarztes, Jakob Eduard Polak, wurden auf der zweiten Europareise Naser al-Din Schahs österreichische Offiziere angeworben, die die Reorganisation der persischen Armee in Angriff nehmen sollten. Die Ankunft Naser al-Din Schahs in Wien am 5. Juli 1878 glich einem Volksfest. Johann Strauss Sohn hatte im Auftrag des Wiener Hofes eine persische Nationalhymne komponiert, um den Gast zur Weltausstellung 1873 standesgemäß empfangen zu können. Der österreichische Staatsmann, Freiherr Karl von Krauß (1789 Lemberg - Wien 1881) hatte in zwei Kabinetten 1851-1857 als Justizminister gedient und war sodann zum Präsidenten des Obersten Gerichts berufen worden. Er war einer der angesehensten, langdienenden hohen Beamten der Monarchie.

JOHNSTON, William Preston
New York: D. Appleton, 1878. 1878 1st ed Confederate General Albert Sidney Johnston Civil War TEXAS CSAAlbert Sidney Johnston was an American military general known for his roles in the Mexican American War and most notably the American Civil War. According to President Jefferson Davis, Johnston was the 'finest general officer in the Confederacy' before Robert E. Lee; Davis continued 'without doing injustice to the living, it may safely be said that our loss is irreparable." Interestingly, he was the highest-ranking officer to be killed in action during the entirety of the Civil War.In 1878, a life of Johnston was published, outlining the major events in the general's life. According to Eicher, this work "highlights Johnston's early life, career in the Black Hawk War, days at Jefferson Barracks, the Texas Revolution, the Mexican War years, and his role in the Mormon Rebellion. The work attacks Grant and Confederates in dispute with Johnston. It remains valuable for its discussion of the general's antebellum life and for personal anecdotes."Item number: #10802Price: $750JOHNSTON, William PrestonThe life of Gen.

ROSSER, William Henry.
Short notes on the winds, weather, & currents, together with general sailing directions and remarks on making passages; to accompany a chart of the Indian Ocean.London, James Imray & son, 1878. 8vo. With 2 folding maps. Original publishers blue wrappers. [4], 71 pp. Extremely rare edition, probably the fourth, of a handbook for sailing in the Indian Ocean. As the title indicates, it not only contains sailing directions and descriptions of different routes to Singapore and the Arabian Sea, but also gives important notes for sailors concerning the winds, weather and the most important currents when crossing the Indian Ocean.Rosser apparently meant this work as a kind of epitome with the most important information on the winds, weather and currents in the Indian Ocean, because in his preface, he refers to his earlier, more extensive work, The Indian Ocean directory (1867). While the present work has two maps, his more extensive work contains many more charts and plans.The two charts indicate sailing routes and currents in the Indian Ocean, with the coasts of Africa, Arabia, South and Southeast Asia and Australia. They show, for example, the Persian/Arabian Gulf, the Gulf of Aden, Ceylon, the Bay of Bengal and the Gulf of Siam.With James Imray & sons printed catalogue on the back board, listing nautical charts and related books. Slightly frayed, some stains on the paper boards, but still in good condition. WorldCat (1 copy); cf. Forbes 2812 (1868 ed., also noting 1866, 1871, 1874 & 1880 eds.); Sabin 73416 (1868 ed.).

Old inoffensive folds, a small tear, slight age-toning, a very good or better example. Archivally dry-mounted, and matted, easily removable. The circular letter that was the foundation document of the American Bar Association, proposing a meeting, suggested by a state bar association, to found an American Bar Association. With three paragraphs, followed by two columns of 14 names, printed in type, this circular announces the birth of the American Bar Association. According to the ABA website: "The ABA was founded on August 21, 1878, in Saratoga Springs, New York, by 100 lawyers from 21 states. The legal profession as we know it today barely existed at that time. Lawyers were generally sole practitioners who trained under a system of apprenticeship. There was no national code of ethics; there was no national organization to serve as a forum for discussion of the increasingly intricate issues involved in legal practice." Among the 14 lawyers whose names are printed within this circular the following are especially notable: Benjamin H. Bristow, first Solicitor General of the United States; William Maxwell Evarts, statesman and the first President of the New York Bar Association; Stanley Matthews, Supreme Court Justice; Lyman Trumbull, Illinois jurist and politician; and John Randolph Tucker, Virginia Attorney General and legal scholar. [*ANB*]. The scarcity of this circular is no doubt made evident by the following statement within the letter: " … [Click Below for Full Description]

STATUE OF LIBERTY
Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi. Autograph Note Signed, on his calling card, c. 1878. With Marquis de Rochambeau, Autograph Note Signed, on his calling card, and a calling card for Count Srurier, during fundraising effort to present Liberty Enlightening the World to the United States. 3 items. 3 3/4 x 2 1/4 in. Shortly after the end of the American Civil War, French abolitionist Édouard René de Laboulaye and sculptor Frédéric Bartholdi discussed the possibility of a monumental memorial to American independence and freedom. Not until June 1871 did Bartholdi travel to the United States to discuss the idea with influential Americans, including President Ulysses S. Grant. In September 1875, Laboulaye announced the formation of the Franco-American Union as a fundraising organization for the project. Although initially aimed at elites, the Franco-American Union raised funds from across French society, including schoolchildren, ordinary citizens, and 181 French municipalities. French copper industrialist Eugène Secrétan donated 64 tons of the 100 tons of copper needed for the statue.Bartholdi constructed the right arm bearing the torch in May 1876 and exhibited it at the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia from August to November 1876. When he returned to Paris in 1877, Bartholdi concentrated on completing the head, which was exhibited at the 1878 Paris World's Fair. By the end of 1879, the Union had raised approximately 250,000 francs. After Laboulaye died in 1883, Ferdinand de Lesseps, builder of the Suez Canal succeeded him as president of the Union. Ultimately, the Franco-America … [Click Below for Full Description]

One signature very slightly sprung forward, but holding firm, tiny loss at the foot of the spine, a lovely, near fine copy. The autobiography of the first African-American to graduate from the United States Military Academy, covering primarily those four years. Flipper was born into slavery in Georgia in 1856. Although facing hazing and loneliness, Flipper graduated, but his military career was brief. Joining the famed Tenth U.S. Cavalry Regiment, he was dismissed for conduct unbecoming of an officer in 1882, a finding that may have been exacerbated by his daily habit of horseback riding with the wife of a white officer (the verdict was posthumously overturned in 1976). However his training further qualified him to be civil and mining engineer, and he was the first African-American to gain prominence in that field as well. Greene. *Black Defenders* pg.113, *Moebs* #169, *Negro History: 1553-1903* #143. A much nicer than usual copy of a book now seldom found in the marketplace. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
