Book Description Dakota Territory nd (1860-61), 1860. 4 x 2.5, Williams & McDonald "Second Floor Gallery, over the Post Office, Denver City C.T." Soiling, staining, light creasing else good. The information on Charles L. Howell is written on the reverse. The Dakota Territory and Denver City, Colorado Territory were all incorporated in 1861. Denver City's post office existed from November 2, 1860 to February 28, 1861, so it seems quite likely that Howell's photograph was taken during that time period. Bookseller Inventory # 99-0507

TURNBULL, GEORGE. ENGINEER.
Published by 1860-1880 (1860)
Used Quantity Available: 1
Seller:
Marrins Bookshop
(Folkestone, KENT, United Kingdom)
Rating
[?]

Book Description 1860-1880, 1860. 41 images, each 4 x 2.5 inches. Nearly every one is fully annotated with the details of the sitter. The images include his first wife and her relatives, and his second wife Fanny (Cubitt's niece), Fanny's family members, and their children. In very good unfaded condition. George Turnbull (b 1809 in Scotland) trained as an engineer in London under Thomas Telford, then building St Katharine Docks, in 1828. By 1830 he became Telford's draughtsman and clerk. He was made an Associate of the Institution of Civil Engineers at age 19 and eventually was the oldest member. In 1845 he married Jane Pope in St. Margaret's, Westminster. She died in 1850 in Calcutta. In 1855 he married Fanny Thomas, niece of the engineer William Cubitt. They had five children. Turnbull's illustrious career encompassed several disciplines, working with many of the greatest names in engineering. In 1832, he helped survey the options for supplying water to London. He was involved in 1833 with experiments for fast passenger canal boats on the Paddington Canal, working alongside Cubitt and Dundas. Turnbull was promoted to chief engineer building the Bute ship canal and Bute Dock in Cardiff, reporting to Cubitt. In August 1836 Turnbull was in Bristol witnessing the 1½-inch bar drawn across the river at Clifton for the future suspension bridge. Brunel visited him at the Cardiff works in 1839. From 1840 to 1842 Turnbull built Middlesborough Dock. In 1843 he was resident engineer for Cubitt, building the railway line from the Shakespeare Tunnel along the shore to Dover station (he entertained the Duke of Wellington, "pale, old and shaky on his legs", who visited the works). He also built a pier and landing stages at Folkestone Harbour. In 1845 he was the engineer in Birkenhead for the complex Seacombe Wall defences that helped drain the marshes behind the town of Seacombe. In 1846-9 he was the resident engineer for the Great Northern Railway, making cuttings and the South Mimms, Copenhagen and three other tunnels for the first 20 miles out of London, and drawing up the first plans for Kings Cross station. In 1850 Turnbull was appointed Chief Engineer of the East Indian Railway and between 18511862 built the first 541 miles of railway from Calcutta to Benares (on the route to Delhi), and designed Calcutta's terminus at Howrah. This was a massive logistical undertaking, as no steel works existed in India at this time, hence all the rails and ironwork for the many bridges had to be imported from England. Another constraint was the difficulty of moving enormous volumes of materials from Calcutta up the Ganges on local boats, particularly during the Indian Mutiny when many boats were sunk and materials stolen. He continued with many other important railway, navigation and public health projects in the sub-continent. He is known as the First Railway Engineer of India. He returned to England in 1875, where he continued to involve himself in further important engineering projects. Bookseller Inventory # 23950

Book Description The saloon, Philadelphia, PA, 1865. The photograph is housed in a gilt-stamped light green envelope, produced for the purpose with a window on the upper panel through which the photo could be viewed, and annotated "The UVR Saloon / as it appeared in 1864 & 1865" in ink manuscript by Samuel B. Fales, the organizer of the Philadelphia branch; on the verso of the envelope is a signed statement by Fales, as "Correspondg Secy" attesting to the number of meals furnished "U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Refugees, Freedmen, Contrabands & Rebel deserters," their cost and other services, with an accompanying slip on which he has written a signed note "The Union Volunteer Refreshment Saloon was closed Augt. 28th 1865, reopened Augt. 30th, finally closed Dec. 1st 1865. The Buildings were torn down Jany 3d 1866 - nothing left to mark the spot. This photograph represents the saloon Dec. 1st 1865." All accompanied by a Patriotic billhead for use as a receipt by the Cooper Shop at the saloon and an engraved folding card, featuring views of the saloon building and its attached hospital, both at the "Foot of Washington St." on the covers, the pages inside printing lists of officers and committees and five paragraphs of text concerning the mission of the organization ("Ives Pr. & Stationer, N.E. Walnut & Dock Sts., Philadelphia, Oct., 1862), and a complimentary paper card, scalloped at the top, listing the officers, members of the saloon committee, and members of the "Committee of Ladies." Six pieces of ephemera, all in very good condition. (#5206). "One of the most active and successful of the numerous organizations designed to aid Union soldiers during the Civil War was the Union Volunteer Refreshment Saloon, founded in Philadelphia on May 27, 1861. During more than four years of its existence, the saloon provided (free of charge) food, drink, and comfortable lodging for soldiers headed into active field service, and a separate hospital provided care for the sick and wounded. Under the direction of an energetic staff, including a large number of women, the Saloon remained open until August 28, 1865" (Clements Library Fales Collection). One of the organizers, Samuel B. Fales (1804-1880), a native of Boston and Harvard graduate and a wealthy collector of paintings and other art works, suspended those activities to help the war effort on the home front, lobbying the wealthy to support the Saloon. During the course of the war, the Saloon served more than a million meals and provided other services at a cost of more than $130,000. In addition to material in the Fales papers at the Clements Library, more related papers may be found at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania (a letterbook from the Union Volunteer Refreshment Saloon containing more than 400 telegrams received by Saloon workers and nine linear feet of material from another Fales archive).

Book Description [Philadelphia, New England, & New York, 1856-1864]., 1864. Twenty-six cartes de visite inserted into fifteen heavy card stock leaves, images approximately 4 x 2 1/2 inches. Contemporary embossed leather album, with brass clasp at fore-edge, a.e.g. Expertly rebacked, original spine laid down. Several tears and light foxing to photo mounts. Images generally clean, with a few occasional stray marks. Later ink annotations to image and mount of the Douglass image. Very good. An interesting album of twenty-six cartes de visite from the Civil War period, with several significant and scarce images. The album consists partially of family portraits, but principally contains images of a number of important figures in the abolitionist movement, and seems to have been compiled by a person with strong anti-slavery sentiments. The majority of images were taken by the Philadelphia photographer J.W. Hurn. Most significantly, the album contains rare cartes de visite of Sojourner Truth and Frederick Douglass. The Sojourner Truth image was issued in 1864, and is captioned at the lower margin, "I sell the shadow to support the substance, Sojourner Truth." The image of Douglass is one of those taken by Hurn, who photographed him several times in the course of his career. There are also carte de visite images of several other important figures in the abolitionist movement and anti- slavery leaders. These include pictures of William Lloyd Garrison, Lucretia Mott, and Salmon P. Chase. Also present are images of Anna E. Dickinson, Wendell Phillips, Theodore Tilton, George Truman, and several of Abraham Lincoln. A fascinating assemblage. Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 53068
