[SHIP SCANTLINGS]
[Copper engravings] SHIP BUILDING
Dublin, Ireland, James Moore 1792 to 1796, . Ill.: copperplate engraving. Two engravings, unmatted, on watermarked paper with chain lines. Each Measures 43 x 26 cms.
¶ Two plates entitled "Ship Building Fig. 30" and "Ship Building Fig. 33", both taken from Moore's Dublin edition of The Encyclopaedia Britannica, published between 1792 and 1796. Fig. 30 (also marked as Plate CCCCLX) depicts a longitudinal view (fore to aft, starboard side) showing various water lines. Fig. 33 (also marked as Plate CCCCLXI) is a more detailed view, showing superstructure of what is evidently a three-masted ship, probably a war ship of the frigate class, as it has two levels of gun ports. The scale at the bottom of the engraving indicates the vessel is 180 feet in length. Both engravings have three vertical creases, and some creasing, spotting, and wear to the edges, else each is sharp, and in very good condition, eminently suitable for framing and presentation. Sold as lot of two for one price.

DETAILS OF THE ENGINES FOR THE U.S. STEAM FRIGATE NIAGARA
, 1859, . Ill.: engraving. The engraving is presently framed under glass but could be removed from the frame and shipped rolled in a tube.
¶ The USS Niagara was a screw-driven steam frigate in the United States Navy. It was launched in New York City in February, 1855, and sailed from that city in November, 1857, bound for Gravesend, England, where it was to be fitted out for laying the first transatlantic telegraph cable. The first attempt was unsuccessful and the Niagara returned to New York City to prepare for a second attempt the following year. This second attempt was successful, the Niagara meeting up mid-ocean with the British cable-laying ship HMS Agamemnon, where the cable ends were spliced and, on August 16, 1858, the first telegraph message was sent by Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, to U.S. President James Buchanan. The Niagara then played a role in interdicting the slave trade, and in the ensuing American Civil War, where she served commendably. After the war, she was sent to the Boston Navy Yard for decommissioning, from where she was sold in 1885. This engraving measures approximately 22 x 28 inches (in the frame). There is a vertical crease mark, but otherwise the engraving is in excellent condition. It is marked as Plate XXXI and is dated at the bottom as being entered in 1859 in the Clerk's Office, of the District Court of the Southern Distict of New York.

[ANONYMOUS] [THE CORNHILL MAGAZINE, 1860]
ELECTRICITY AND THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH
London, Cornhill Magazine 1860, wrappers. An extract (pp. 61 to 73) from this British periodical. 8vo, pp. 61 to 73. Pages a bit rippled and slightly age-toned, else in very good condition.
¶ No author is shown. It is possible - but this is pure speculation - that the author is George B. Prescott (1830-1894), the author of a standard book on the subject and with the same title, the first edition of which was published in 1877. Again, one can speculate that this was a preliminary article on that subject by that author.

"THE FAIRBANK PLAN" Catalogue / Valuable Articles / Given for Coupons from The Fairbank Specialties
Chicago, IL, N. K. Fairbank Company ND (c. 1890s), wrappers. Ill.: black-&-white illustrations. Bound in original printed stapled card covers. 4to, pp. 32.
¶ An interesting retail coupon catalogue. Apparently, the Fairbank Company, in order to encourage the 19th century consumer to purchase its products, had an arrangement with retail stores to issue coupons upon the purchase of gold dust washing powder, fairy soap, Fairbank's glycerine tar soap, Fairbanl's scouring soap, and cottolene. Customers could redeem these coupons for the items in this catalogue, which displayed quite a wide array of merchandise; from jewelry, silverware and cut glass to books, musical instruments, rifles and pistols, and household goods (samples of which are illustrated in this catalogue). The card covers are well-worn and, at some distant point in the past, a mouse nibbled the top right corner. The contents are in quite good condition, with no markings or serious flaws, other than a few corner creases.
