Item Description: [Rock Island County, Illinois:, 1834. 4" x 6.5", blue paper. 59pp, hand-paginated. Small manuscript journal, self-wrappers [light soiling and staining, edgewear], sewn. Front wrap has manuscript title: "Township 18 N.R. 1 East/ Subdivision by C.R. Bennett in 1834. Variation, 7° 50' E." Some pencil calculations on rear wrap. Light age toning of interior pages, minor chipping and dog-earing of corners. Good+ to Very Good. These survey notes were prepared by Charles R. Bennett, a United States Deputy Surveyor. The notes are very detailed, referencing the "Indian Line as surveyed by Flack and Bean," the road from Rock Island to Galena, the Mississippi River, the Rock River, creeks, swamps, oak trees and other landmarks. They appear to be of East Moline, Illinois, or a nearby township. The journal is divided into six parts, five "Tier of Sections" and the "Meanders of the Mississippi." It is probably a record of part of the surveys Bennett was contracted to perform by the federal government in 1832 and 1833. He and others were charged with surveying a large area of Illinois and nearby Missouri. They surveyed about 6300 miles, of which over 4200 miles were in Illinois. Bennett surveyed thirteen townships in the Rock Island area. [AMERICAN STATE PAPERS: DOCUMENTS, LEGISLATIVE. VOLUME 8, 1861, accessed at googlebooks.com; Bateman, et al.: 2 HISTORICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ILLINOIS, p. 790.] Charles R. Bennett [1810-1879], born in New Jersey, lived in Illinois for many years. He was appointed County Surveyor of Jo Daviess County in 1835. The 1850 United States Federal Census lists him as a surveyor in Jo Daviess. Bookseller Inventory # 32623

Grand Quatuor Pour Deux Violons, Alto et: Paganini, Nicolò. (1782-1840)

Item Description: Book Condition: Used; Like New. Dust Jacket Condition: Used; Like New. Autograph manuscript copy of the complete parts for Paganini's Quartet No. 7 in E major for violin, viola, cello and guitar, M.S. 34, here transcribed for standard String Quartet (violin, violin, viola, cello).  8.5" x 13". 54 pages including front cover and individual cover pages. Outer wrapper spine reinforced with early paper tape over original threaded binding, scattered staining, overall very good. The title page and likely the manuscript entirely in the hand of Johann Christoph Bauriegel (1773 - 1851), German teacher and Biblical scholar who lived in Pulgar (near Leipsic), and who has signed lower right "Johs: Bauriegel / Pulgar 1832."  Cover and parts also inscribed and stamped by the composer and arranger, Carl Dietrich (1816 - 1875), and further by Friedrich Maximillian Bernhardt Fincke (1821 - 1906), noted German-born physician and homeopathic pioneer who was also well known as a musician. In all, Paganini wrote fifteen quartets for violin, viola, guitar and cello, but only three for the archetypal string quartet. Composed between 1817 - 1818, the present work is dedicated to the Genovese Marquis Caterian Raggi Pallavicini, and is a notably more interesting composition than the earlier quartets. Only five of Paganini's works were published during his lifetime, and the rest of his oeuvre was published posthumously, including the present Quartet No. 7 in E Major, which was the first of the quartets to have been published in its original version after the composer's death.  Notably, the Leipzig firm Kistner published a transcription of the work for String Quartet ca. 1830 (plate number 839), this being the likely model from which the present manuscript was copied.  .

Item Description: Spain, 1792. Single sheet, float-mounted and framed (18 x 21 4/8 inches). A UNIQUE MANUSCRIPT CHART OF THE CLAYOQUOT SOUND, pen and ink on paper. FROM A DECISIVE MOMENT IN THE COLONIAL HISTORY OF CANADA AND THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST Manuel Quimper was part of Francesco de Eliza's expedition between 1790 and 1791 sent to occupy Nootka Sound for Spain, during a particularly tense clash between British and Spanish forces, who had both taken interest in the western coast of North America. The two countries had simultaneously embarked on scientific and trading missions in the wilderness. Jostling for territory had led to inevitable friction between the two parties at Nootka Sound, culminating in the seizure of British ships and property by the ebullient Spanish captain, Jose Esteban Martinez. James Colnett, a British captain, arrived at Nootka Sound in 1789 and notified the Spanish commander that he had come "under authority of the King of England with orders to take possession of Nootka, construct a fort, establish a factory, and plant a colony." In consequence, the Spaniards arrested Colnett and his officers and seized his cargo. Upon his release he proceeded to England and raised an uproar about his treatment which almost precipitated a war between England and Spain. This was the celebrated "Nootka Sound Controversy," one of the most famous incidents in the history of the Northwest. There followed a series of treaties and agreements related to the territories surrounding Nootka Sound. The preliminary agreement made on July 4, 1790 stated that settlements already made by subjects of either nation for carrying on commerce with the natives would not be disturbed. Captain George Vancouver was then sent by the English to Nootka to work out the details with the Spanish envoy, the Spanish captain Juan Francisco de la Bodega y Quadra. Manuel Quimper left Nootka in May 1790, at the height of the conflict, to explore southward. His ship was the Princesa Real, previously known as the Princess Royal before it was confiscated from James Colnett's associate, Thomas Hudson. Quimper spent ten days in Clayoquot Sound, the subject of this finely drawn chart, and then sailed into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. He paid particular attention to possible harbors, charting and claiming possession in all he found. Quimper made a number of important discoveries, including Port Discovery on the Olympia Peninsula, Washington State. However, he missed Admiralty Inlet, the entrance to Puget Sound, which was found on July 5, 1790 by another expedition led by Juan Carrasco, who thought it was a bay and named it Ensenada de Caamano. It was to be discovered as the entrance to Puget Sound and named Admiralty Inlet by Vancouver only two years later. Bookseller Inventory # 000508
