    Beschreibung: E. Fabreguettes Fils & Morra (n. d.), New York. Circa 1850. Suspension gold scale made of brass, with troy and grain weights. Troy weights nested, ranging from 1/16 to 4 oz; grain weights include 2, 6, and 10. Case: 1-11/16" x 6-11/16" x 3-1/8". Scale, when hanging: ~8-1/4" x 7-1/8", brass balances 2-1/2" in diameter. In 1850, the New York firm of E. Fabreguettes, Fils & Morra, importers of French fancy goods, attempted to capitalize on the California Gold Rush by adding gold scales to their wares. Notices in several of the city's papers in late October and early November of that year, including the Monday, November 4th edition of The Evening Post, advertised the following: "GOLD SCALES. || The subscribers offer for sale the best and most approved pattern of French Standard Gold Scales, adjusted exactly to the United States Mint Standard, of every size and weight. || These scales are so made that they take but very little compass when packed, and are much more neatly and conveniently finished, than either the English, German, or American article. As we have all that are made of this pattern, parties having orders for shipment to California, are solicited to examine them before purchasing elsewhere. Also for sale, a variety of French fancy goods, accordeons [sic], &c. || E. Fabreguettes, Fils & Morra, 73 William Street, (up stairs.)."E. Fabreguettes, Fils & Morra was located at 61 Maiden Lane until at least 1847, moving to their William Street address in 1848 or 1849. No later advertisements for these scales appear to have been issued in New York newspapers, leading us to conjecture that the firm's venture into the gold mining market was perhaps not particularly successful. It is, of course, impossible to say with any certainty if this particular scale was originally used during the Gold Rush, though this one here offered was purchased in California, giving rise to possibility it may very well have been. In either case, a nice artifact from the California Gold Rush era. Light general wear to case and weights, brass balances a bit tarnished. Only contains the three grain weights, so perhaps others missing? VG overall. Wooden case with a hinged lid and hook clasps, seller's label to inside of lid. Interior has carved compartments for the brass scale and weights, including a small compartment for grain weights with a hinged lid. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 42777

    Beschreibung: R. Voigtlander, Kreuznach, 1849. 32pp. Printed blue wrappers (rear wrapper original, front wrapper in facsimile). Small corner repairs to rear wrapper. Some foxing, two ink stamps on titlepage, else very good. In a half morocco slipcase and cloth chemise. The first edition of an exceedingly rare Gold Rush pamphlet, printed in the hallowed year of that epochal event. "Like many guidebooks for Europeans, this pamphlet gives general information on California's physical features, history, and 'Notes for Emigrants' on the gold discovery. The portion on California's gold riches consists primarily of an article reprinted from the KOELNER ZEITUNG of January 14, 1849, which in turn summarizes R.B. Mason and others. The guide mentions the many German settlers in the Sacramento Valley and speaks proudly of Captain Sutter" - Kurutz. Only four institutions worldwide report a copy of this book: the California State Library, the University of California at Berkeley, Yale, and the State Library in Berlin. It is even more difficult to encounter at auction, this copy being the only one on record to pass through the rooms. COWAN II, p.102. HOWES C43, "aa." KURUTZ 112. SABIN 9984.

    Beschreibung: Gazette Print, [Columbia, Ca., 1853. Broadside, 10 3/4 x 8 inches, printed in three columns. A bit of light foxing, mostly in the margins. Near fine. In a folding cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. A rare broadside printing of the laws of the Columbia Mining District in California in 1853, created and enforced by the miners for their own self-government. The seventeen articles all deal with regulations for mining and claims. The first nine set out rules for making and operating claims. The next three address foreign ownership of claims. Article 10: "None but Americans and Europeans who have or shall declare their intentions of becoming citizens, shall hold claims in this district." Article 11: "Neither Asiatics nor South Sea Islanders shall be allowed to mine in this district, either for themselves or for others." Article 12 sets out a punishment for any miner who sells a claim to an Asian or Polynesian. The final five articles set out rules for enforcing the laws, including the creation of a Miners Committee, and a system of binding arbitration. According to the text, the laws were adopted "at a meeting of the Miners of the Columbia Mining District, held Oct. 1st, 1853.," and the laws are signed in print by "C.H. Chamberlain, Pres." and "R.A. Robinson, Sec'y." "The item is of basic importance.as an example of how the California miners - or men beyond the reach of government anywhere else in our States and Territories, for that matter - banded together and enacted and enforced codes of law for their own protection" - Eberstadt. The COLUMBIA GAZETTE (which printed this broadside) was, according to Kemble, the second newspaper to operate in Columbia, starting operations in the fall of 1852. The first newspaper in the area, the COLUMBIA STAR, apparently printed only two or three issues in October-November of 1851, before the printing press was destroyed by vandals. Greenwood locates only three copies, at the California Historical Society, the Bancroft Library, and the Streeter copy, which was sold at the Clifford sale in 1994. Rocq lists a copy at the Huntington Library. OCLC adds copies at Yale, Library of Congress, University of California at San Diego, Stanford, and DeGolyer Library at Southern Methodist University. A rare and interesting example of the search for order in the tumult of the gold rush. GREENWOOD 381. ROCQ 15427. EBERSTADT 131:105. STREETER SALE 2735. CLIFFORD SALE 26. OCLC 29876358.

Since the sufferings of those gone there have been made known & likewise how small the chance of making money enough to fetch them back even many who were calculating to go have given it up at least for the present."The second letter by Keith to affirm to Miss Marcy that she wishes good relations between the two of them, expressing appreciation of the "complimentary manner in which you mentioned my son."An intimate look at the allure of California's the 1850s myth, tempered with the reality relayed back by some of those who succumbed.

    Beschreibung: 1851. Bifolium, i.e., 4 pages of lined paper, 23 lines per page, ~ 10 words per line, ~ 900+ words. 9-3/4" x 7-5/8" While no year is written on the ALs itself, we posit 1851, as the Maritime Heritage website shows the only visit to San Francisco by the Washington was July 21, 1851, arriving from Baltimore [per a newspaper entry in the Daily Alta]. That said, per a online perpetual calender, March 14th came on a Tuesday in 1852, not 1851. We lean towards 1851 as the actual year this letter was written.And this historic letter is replete with interesting content written by a man bound for the promised land of California. Chamberlin is from Boston, writing a newsy letter his sister, posted from the Harbor of Pernambuco [Brazil], March 14 where the ship in taking on supplies, including coal. He describes the voyage thus far, the expense of the company that sent him, and the trip ahead around the Horn, expecting to arrive in California in about 30 days. He describes conditions aboard the ship, the places he has visited, the people he has met in Brazil, his own experiences with the heat and fever, and more. Letters from this era are apprearing ever more infrequently on the market. Age-toning, especially along fold-line. Penmanship clear & easily read. Now housed in an archival mylar sleeve.

    Beschreibung: Union Hill / Grass Valley, California 1914-1915, 1915. Original hardcover ledger 11.5Ó x 8Ó, bound in half leather with gilt stamping over light brown corduroy, metal spine with locking mechanism (no key), marbled paper pastedowns, and gilt embossed leather alphabet tabs on front page edges. 168 pages of handwritten text showing detailed internal records from the historic Union Hill Mining Company that had offices in both Grass Valley and San Francisco. Union Hill is adjacent to Grass Valley. Detailed information for 1914-1915 including operating expenses, profit and loss, income, expenses, production, vendors, payroll, cash, bullion production, tungsten production, names, vouchers, insurance, and marketing. Entries include operating expenses for the South Idaho Mine, and names of the local companies they did business with such as Grass Valley Hardware, Empire Mining Company, Nevada County Narrow Gauge R. R. Company, and Thomas Diggs Company, an entry for Augustus D. Cox who was the Mine supervisor, to very specific mining operating expenses for example: ÒShaft Above 600Õ LevelÓ, ÒShaft Below 600Õ LevelÓ, ÒStorage Dam 600Õ LevelÓ with expenses for mining tools, hoisting, compressing, fire protection, etc. A rare and unique Gold Country artifact, this original handwritten Ledger offers compelling insight into an historic Mother Lode gold mine. The corduroy covers have some staining, the rear leather corner has a corner chip, the rear spine fold has a two inch half oval chip revealing the board beneath, the front hinge is split and the metal spine has some rust, internally, the ink stamp of the Union Hill Mining Company on the front endpaper. Gold was discovered at Union Hill in 1854, the first recorded claim was in 1866 as Union Hill Gold Quartz Mine, and Mining Stock Certificates for Union Hill Mining Company exist from the 1860Õs. Although very profitable, it appears Union Hill Mine opened & closed, changed ownership &/or operators several times from the 1870Õs until purchased by Idaho-Maryland Mines Company around 1920. In 2016 this historic mine was purchased by a gold mining company with plans to restart operations in the unexplored areas below the Idaho-Maryland Mine Property.

In The New York Tribune for December 8, 1848, published by Horace Greeley and Thomas McElrath. Original elephant folio newspaper, 4pp. complete, the report on p. 3. Colonel Richard B. Mason s famous report of his trip to newly discovered placers. It ranks as one of the most important eyewitness accounts of the Gold Rush. (Kurutz 105) One day Mr. Marshall, as he was walking own the race to this deposit of mud, observed some glittering particles at its upper edge [from the Report). This issue was printed just three days after the Message from the president to the Two House of Congress., December 5, 1848. While there were earlier published reports of the discovery, the publication of Mason s report here was most significant. Mason was Military governor of California from 1847-1849. His letter, dated August 17, traveled by sea to Washington and did not arrive until December. By this time most people who were already in California had left their jobs for the gold fields, and rumors had reached the east coast. But the publication of Mason s report and the presidential announcement were confirmation that settled all doubts about what was happening. Condition: Removed from a bound volume. Some chipping, else Fine. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers k201010g

  • AUTOGRAPH NOTE, SIGNED, BY J.W. JUDD, TO: California Gold Rush]:

    Beschreibung: New York, 1849. [1]p. of a bifolium, docketed on verso of second bifolium leaf. Mailing folds, slight edge discoloration, else fine. An intriguing note regarding life insurance for a forty- niner traveling to California in 1849 with Henry Webb and John Woodhouse Audubon. The note reads, "Langdon H. Havens wants a [life insurance] permit for California to go over the Overland Route in company with persons bearing dispatches from our Government, in a Company of 100 or more. He wants to leave for Washington immediately." Perhaps the twenty-six-year-old Haven (sometimes spelled Havens) originally intended to join a safe government-sponsored expedition from Washington, but he was in fact among the 100 Forty-Niners who embarked on a famously ill-fated overland expedition, led by Army Colonel Henry Webb, with John Woodhouse Audubon, son of the famous ornithologist, as his second in command, which left New York on Feb. 8. The company proceeded by ship, train, stagecoach and riverboat to New Orleans and from there by steamer across the Gulf of Mexico to the mouth of the Rio Grande, where they arrived on March 13 - an odd overland route dictated by Webb, a veteran of the Mexican War. There disaster struck. A dozen men died of cholera, the company's money was stolen, and leadership conflict led Webb to leave the company with a dozen followers. Some of the remaining stalwarts, including Haven followed Audubon onward, trekking for seven months through Mexico and Arizona, the survivors finally reaching San Diego in November. Some then took a boat to San Francisco; others continued overland to the gold fields. As meticulously recorded by Audubon, a naturalist and painter in his own right, the entire venture has gone down in history as "one of the most poorly-planned" Forty-Niner expeditions "on record." Haven, though nearly dying en route, was one of the fortunate few who "made it to California." An appealing note, dated in the famous year of the California Gold Rush, that eerily anticipates the dangers inherent in overland travel in America in the 19th century.

    Beschreibung: Sacramento, California, 1855. Manuscript. Zustand: Very Good. Two manuscript letters in ink, both on ruled paper with folding creases, the 1855 letter 8" x 12 1/2", with single spaced writing both sides, approx. 500 words. The 1856 letter 15" x 10", folded in half to make 4 pp., approx. 300 words, with small blindstamp top left corner depicting an eagle. The earlier letter is headed "September 18th 1855 Naperville Dupage County Illinois" and ends "Michael direct your letters Nevada County, Nevada post office, California". George writes to his brother Michael in Naperville that he has "seen a good dele sins i rote you they last letter", including a hundred "inshins" and some "Buffellow". He adds that "we had good luck all they way of may we left Council Bluff", and that he is not home sick yet. He then talks of the gold mines, river mining, what they are paying, and the cost of things such as board ("from five to ten dollars a week"), "Beaf" ("wors 15 to 20 cents"), and "potato" ( "4 cent per pound"). He adds that he intends to have some gold before he comes home and that "girls are not so plenty here as they are in state". He closes by asking his brother to write him and to remain at home in Illinois to care for their parents. The 1856 letter, headed Sacramento august 3th 1856, informs his brother that he is well and "down to Sacramento now" working on a farm feeding a "schrasing" (thrashing) machine and that "they times is verry hard in California now". He adds that he had some money "stole" while he was in the mountains, but since coming down into the valley he was making money and will send some home soon. The letter ends with George wishing to see them all soon and that he is not home sick. The third page of the letter bears a drawing of a wing or leaf, eleven smaller versions of the same image interspersed on page 2. A fascinating testimonial on California during the gold rush, written in a strong hand and in a wonderful vernacular style by a good observer. HOLOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED.
